This is session 21
in which we'll be looking at three names of Allah numbers 2829 and 30.
in terms of chronic location are these three names, the Divine Name alim, is mentioned 157 times in the Quran,
among them, also by Hannah Subhana Allah Mallanna in Dharma Lambton, in NACA and then the moon Hakeem
Oh, sorry, the angels said,
Laurie FIDE Glory be to You.
We have no knowledge except what You have taught us. Indeed. You all are the all knowing wise.
In terms of the name of Harlem
it is mentioned 13 times in the crime
ilaha illa Allah mon wavy where Shahada is a lord besides whom there is no God.
Knower of the unseen
and in terms of an alarm,
this is mentioned four times in the crop, Mung them
call oh nine Mallanna Illa.
In nucca antenna anomaly,
the angel said we have no knowledge indeed, only you are the Knower of the unseen
in terms of the meaning, linguistically, all three of these Divine Names
Aladdin, and de la lamb are built on the trial literal route. I'm lamb name are derived from the verbal known master l l moon, which means knowledge.
These Divine Names have four main meanings, the first meaning is to have knowledge to be aware and certain. The second meaning is to gather information. The third meaning is to have deep knowledge of my new details. And the fourth main meaning is to act according to knowledge.
Now, this route appears 854 times in the Quran in 14 derived forms.
I lemma to teach
an Alamo to be more knowledgeable.
linguistically, alim is the intensive form of the present participle.
A Knower a person with knowledge on the pattern of fine like Rahim in relationship to
Allah alim is the all and ever knowing
the Divine Name Allah Allah on the other hand, is the most intensive form of the word I live on the platter.
It expresses the perfection and totality of Allah is knowledge.
Allah alim comprehends everything with certainty.
No knowledge is concealed from him. And he is to actively aware of all things, even before they take place.
relative to a law, these Divine Names, an alum and Eileen and
alum, according to the 10th century, Persian scholar of inferior poverty,
meant that he who knows without being taught
by these names, fundamentally meant he who knows, without being taught everything that was and it's
all alone knows the unseen, which is completely hidden from his creation.
It now pay him
in his poem, called a new new year,
with a 13th 14th century scholar
described a law's knowledge of the unseen, saying, likewise, he knows what will happen tomorrow.
What was and what now exists.
Like likewise, he knows, he knows if the non existent did exist, how possibly we'll be
moving on to the application. They've been bubbles, methodology for principles, the first of which is to adopt were
these Divine Names these three Divine Names and arlynn, alim and Alam are grounded in the divine concept of omniscience, complete and comprehensive knowledge on an infinite plane, which human knowledge cannot begin to fathom, much less imitate.
beings cannot think, to imitate or adopted. However, a lot of teaching them the names of everything, which subsequently elevated humankind, above the levels of the angels and the jinn
can be imitated by human beings on our level by learning and teaching each other.
The divinely extinguishing primordial to act
elevated the status of the student and teacher will lofty position,
which should be adopted by protecting and promoting it is always possible.
The teacher model
of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
is a standard
And this model is particularly relevant to Muslims of the developing world today, where the teaching profession is looked down upon
as it is the lowest paid profession.
The consequence of this negative view is that there is a shortage of Muslim teachers for modern secondary subjects in Muslim schools all over the Muslim world.
So non Muslim teachers are hired in droves.
I just recently returned from Addis Ababa
or Addis Ababa,
Ethiopia, home to over 15 million Muslims and visited the best Islamic schools were in virtually all of them. non Muslim teachers outnumbered Muslim teachers.
I mean, some places it was like 80%, almost 90%.
Likewise, when I was in, when I was in
Chennai, setting up an Islamic school
set up there called 5g International School it's still functioning.
This is in Tamil Nadu, southern part of India. On to over 200 millions.
We couldn't find Muslim teachers to cover the so called secondary subjects. I mean, I experienced this firsthand.
However, the Islamic reality is that a lot described Prophet Muhammad SAW seldom primarily as an educator.
Will the basophil Amina Rasulullah Minho, yet Luna la him it was a key him Are you a limo Makita will hikma it is here who sent from among the illiterate, a messenger reciting his verses to them, purifying them and teaching them the book and wisdom.
And the problem homicides Elon himself had reiterated this fact, in a well known Hadith narrated by Java which he said in the La lamblia but actually more than one meter will Amata Anita Walla, I can bath any more I lemon, we are Syrah
Allah did not send me as an inflexible troublemaker. But rather he sent me as a teacher and the facilitator.
The Prophet Muhammad SAW Salaam elevated the role of the teacher to one which every Muslim should strive for, in well known Hadith narrated by Abu huraira in which he said at dunya melona Muller own on Martha, inadequate crew law on our law element out in
the world and its contents are cursed except for the remembrance of Allah and what helps us to do so.
The scholar teacher and or the students.
Furthermore, the prophet wants us on them, praise those who learn and taught the Quran as being the best amongst Muslims saying
hydrocal Mantra Montana. I know Allah. The best of you are those who learn the Quran and teach it to others. We've all heard this adage.
Many, many times, learning and teaching.
In the West, teachers are highly valued, and highly paid.
Primary and Secondary Education Institutions understand full well, that the higher the quality of teachers, the better the standard of graduates, according to the it principle, garbage in, garbage out. Consequently, we need to encourage our intelligent and motivated youth, beginning with our own children to study education as their first choice, and not as their last choice if they can't get into medicine, law and engineering.
Furthermore, we need to revise our teaching methodology. From rote learning to understanding from teacher centered to student centered, as the West has done since the 60s,
they discovered the inquiry method of teaching and revamped their educational institution, while the Muslim world and the developing world in general remain stuck in the road method of learning, which they inherited from the schools of their colonial masters. their own learning method has its origins in the Catholic catechisms. Where
faith was taught in a question and answer format.
What is this? It is that what is this is that
this was developed from the late Middle Ages, talking about the 15th century in Europe spread all over Europe, this was the method Muslims didn't apply this later on, actually, after the colonial era, etc. Or during it. Many did adopt this method as they adopted basically,
the whole method of education, as they say, hook line and sinker from the colonial masters.
So sadly, Muslims are forgotten, the prophetic method of teaching.
His most popular method was the inquiry method, which the West has discovered recently,
provoking students to think rather than just pouring on them knowledge
on a spoon or
throwing a bucket of water at them and whoever gets wet got wet.
For example, on the 10th of the ledger, the promise I sell them asked,
all who are present.
Do you know what day this is?
they reply the line is messenger knows best.
The prophet SAW Selim remain silent until the complainant started is going to call it by another name.
Then he said, Isn't this the day of sacrifice?
The crowd answered, Yes, indeed. And then he went on to
explain, give them full lecture. But it started off with, you know what they This is?
As if they didn't know No, they knew.
But it was to
put them in a frame of mind, you know, an inquiring frame of mind in order to grasp everything that he was about to give them. On another occasion, the prompts are solemn, was reported by Abu huraira to ask them, Do you know who is bankrupt? Actually, I think we all have
And of course, they replied, this is different. They didn't say we don't know. Many times they would say,
Allah and His Messenger knows best or they just remained completely silent. Sometimes they did respond. Like when he asked about who is bankrupt, you know, is was the Bank of person. They replied the bankrupt among us, is one without money or goods, said among us,
you may have something else to say. But among us it's one without money or goods. The government says and went on to tell them all the truly bankrupt world
among us, he said, Indeed the bankrupt of my nation are those who come before him on the Day of Resurrection with prayers, fasting and charity, all these good deeds. But they also brought along with them insults, slander, consuming the wealth of others, shedding the blood of others, harming others with their hands in so many different ways.
The oppressed will be given from their good deeds, until the good deeds run out, before food justice has been fulfilled, then the sins of the oppressed people who are coming to get there, get there, right. The same their sins will be passed on to
scale of evil deeds.
And we will be thrown
even though we came with all fasting and prayers in charge in the very beginning, that is the truth.
So of course, if I sell them could have just said to them.
The lesson today is about the truly bankrupt and Who are they? They are these do this.
he chose to ask them a question. Do you know who is truly bankrupt?
This would cause whatever he had to say,
to be imprinted in their brain,
they would never forget.
It will not ruin. He reported that on one occasion in the process, I'm asked Who among you considers the wealth of his heirs, dearer to him than his own wealth?
they, this is obvious said, Every one of us loves his own wealth more.
He's bringing a point across to them.
So the private thoughts on them then went on to say, his wealth is whatever he spends during his life.
The wealth of his heirs is whatever he leaves behind, after his death.
This is a big point to think about.
This is how the process of writing
because what you're saying,
he, of course, your own wealth is dear to you, and then the wealth of
But in practice, we don't live that way.
If it's dear to us, it's only going to benefit us if we use it.
Use it for what is beneficial.
So the problems are solved and is encouraging us to do that rather than just hoard, gather, collect,
consume only for ourselves.
So, there are many other narrations which confirm that the most popular teaching method used by the prophets Allah was the inquiry method.
I'm sure you all heard heartbeats about backbiting. But he asked, you know what backbiting is? Then he went on to elaborate.
Then you know the rights of the neighbor.
You know, who is stingy?
So many narrations of that nature.
Hadees gibreel hadith of Angel Gabriel, which teaches us the Pillars of Islam, began with the promise was seldom requesting his companions to ask him
start off with questions. He didn't want to just come and dictate to them Islamic by
the mind is six pillars. Yes, and
it didn't. Instead, he wanted them to us, you know, put pressure on that but on this occasion, they remain silent. Wait, waiting. And so a lot of sec Angel Gabriel
to sit before the province or salon and ask the question.
All of the processing, what is this?
So here are the questions coming as an inquiry system of teaching.
Yes, there were times when he just gave them factual statements. But many times even these straightforward statements contain provocative tension catching phrases or words, which created mental questions in the minds of the listeners.
Like the Hadees. In which prompts are sentiment said, I dounia Muller owner, Muller own mafia, the whole world and its contents are cursed at you know, when I put some serious questions in the minds of the listeners, his companions, they already said
you're all lost. Then he went on to clarify mentioned earlier, or on another occasion, because I sent him said, support your brother, whether he is your presser or the oppressed, one sort of a haka, Dolly man, oh, maluma.
This is of course, oh, it's a well known phrase that they used to say,
you know, among, in the times, prior to Islam, amongst the non Muslims, they would say that help your brother, whatever the case may be,
whether he's an oppressor, or whether he is the oppressor, of course, you're gonna question how can we do that or messenger of Allah, we can understand when he's oppressed, that we help him, but when is the oppressor? Now, of course, he clarified them, that you stop him. That's how you helped him, stop oppressing others,
you know, or his statement.
On the occasion, we spoke about this before, earlier sessions, the next person to enter the mosque will be from among the people of paradise.
Finance, waited. It saw the video come in, I discussed this
earlier, but catching their attention, you could have told them what you wanted to tell them.
But instead, he
taught it in this way.
or his statement to the man who came in the masjid did his to Raka camp, sit down beside the pastor Salam. And then he told him go back and pray because you didn't pray anywhere back and a bit and came back and he can go back and pray because you didn't
sort of just explain to him what you need. But by sending him back three times,
to the man frustrated, came back and had to say, well, that's the only prayer that I know.
So he taught him and of course, he's teaching everybody there at the same time.
he sometimes even did provocative actions, like the occasion where he walked up the steps of the member
inside the mastery, and began to pray a voluntary prayer on top of it.
That course everybody in the master is running what is the messenger?
Because his member was not one like you have now some of you might not be surprised because member has become so big, you know, some of them covered with canopies and all kinds of things. Yeah, you could go out there have a meeting. people sitting down so big. Now in his day was just three steps.
And the last step was the
just a small step, only enough place to stand up. How in the world was he going to pray?
That's all of course, they watched him and then he
came down when he had to make some food
and went back up again, when he was standing in prayer came down when he had
ended the prayer thing, men told them I only did that in order that you would learn my method.
So, you know, this was these are teaching moments, teaching opportunities, which the promises are then used to bring home that message.
So inquiry based instruction, just as a principle, it promotes active learning that starts by posing questions or problems or scenarios, and develops critical thinking skills, as opposed to memorizing information
From instructional materials, it is a student centered rather than a teacher centered method of teaching.
those of us who are in the position of teaching, even at home, this can be applied this is not only for school circumstances, but this is for all circumstances. And this is the prophetic word.
The second principle of Ibn batal was to confirm were unique and inapplicable and we already started off saying that,
is something which is unique to.
So, these Divine Names are grounded in knowledge, on an infinite
which human knowledge cannot begin to fathom, much less imitate,
we apply the divine attributes by confirming that they belong to no one besides the law.
And any attempt to give the divine attributes of omniscience,
knowledge of the unseen to his creatures should be rejected and oppose tooth and nail by all.
For example, in the case in case of the official, she I believe, regarding the omniscience
out of the 12 Mountains, Padma and Prophet Muhammad,
this should be future
with the evidence of the Quran
and the Sunnah, and rejected as a radical belief, involving deifying human being.
Mohammed radar, Al Mustafa
wrote the following under the heading doctrine of the attributes of the Imam, and knowledge of the Imam, in his basic teaching text called the faith of Shia Islam,
printed in the religious center of
lack of knowledge
well, upper gi
hero, what we maintain that the powers of the moms to receive inspiration
have reached the highest degree of excellence. And we say that it is a divinely given power
given by God still,
by this means, the mom is able to understand information about anything, anywhere and at any time.
So the handle it goes on to say and he understands demand, understands, by means of this divine the given power at once, without recourse to methodological reasoning, or guidance from a teacher.
I mean, they're not talking about Imam Khomeini. They're talking about the 12 moms, the descendants are supposedly descendants of
Ali, they've been at the target.
These expressions are not the individual aberrations of the author. You know, sometimes you can find books where people write all kinds of
claiming to be Sunni Muslims, wherever they're written all kinds of stuff.
But we consider it to be individual craziness. No people can do and are able to do.
So is this under that heading? So she can say well, no, no, no, no, no, no, this guy just office is crazy. Cool.
of the most authentic Shiite collection of tradition known as Casio galaxies like Buhari for us,
under the heading, the moms can know anything whenever they wished.
I will collini the author of Al caffee. He narrated the following tradition.
From Joshua, a saw that
whenever any mom wishes to possess knowledge of anything, he can easily know it.
I plenty also related on the authority of Abu Basir on Java
have been about
that he said,
I'm a mom who does not possess knowledge of what will befall him as knowledge of the future. And what will be, cannot be a
of Allah against this riches.
On the other hand, not to be outdone, Sunni Muslims, particularly the surface, they have made similar claims for their saints is one of the reasons why. Shiites claim that Sufism is their invention, they're the ones who invented it.
So you can find concerning the Alia
the name they give to those who they designate the saints. at the bar, road,
I saw a saint rally, reach a station wherein he witnessed all intelligent and unintelligent created
wild animals, insects, they haven't, and it stars the earth, and the global the entire world, gained its sustenance from him. So behind Allah.
He goes on to say, he heard all of the sounds, and conversations in a single instance. And he gave each, what they needed, and what was best suited for them, without being distracted by one from the other.
This is a lie.
same Sufi saying,
he observed himself
Prophet Abraham, sorry, Allied Prophet Muhammad SAW us and then disclaim any knowledge of the day, unseen. In the Quran itself. Allies puts the words on the lips of the prophets.
Well, I'll put him to Alamo.
Let's Teixeira to mineral hair, Mama Sonny assu.
If it were that I had knowledge of the unseen,
I would have accumulated only good and no evil would have be fallen, did evil before the session.
There's also something in the crime.
This has been now immortalized in the Quran, saying he doesn't have
didn't have a monitor.
Not at all.
Except what was revealed to him. Allah sent him information about things which are coming and sent that on different occasions. But he didn't walk and continually had knowledge of future for everything and everyone around him. It's
just instances, miraculous instances where he revealed these things. And, you know, miracles proving to those around the market is profit.
So, we are obliged to oppose such thinking, such claims, to give omniscience, knowledge of everything, everywhere, anytime, to give that to human beings to the creation, ship.
It is in its essence ship.
This belongs only to Allah.
And we are obliged, as true believers to affirm that it belongs only to
moving on to the third principle of in the fall. To have a hope where there is promise, the Divine Names Aladdin, Aladdin and alarm contain promises of revealed and acquired beneficial knowledge down through the age.
A lot taught Adam all of the names to elevate you
beings to a status above the angels and the jinn.
The combined inherited knowledge of humans separates us from the other creatures around us, who are unable to pass on knowledge to the next generation.
We teach the dogs tricks. But when the dogs give birth to other dogs, those dogs are those dogs born with
that knowledge know? And can the
dog who we taught the check, can he teach the other dog how to do the trick? No.
This is unique to us, which separates us from the rest of humankind. Now, there are some aspects of knowledge which are given to animals, you know, that sometimes outshines the knowledge that we have the ability to hear, to see, to fly, you know, their abilities which Allah has given them over and above our own personal individual.
But the bottom line is that whenever we teach a monkey example, tricks, you can do this you can do that the other 10 people everything else,
that knowledge dies with him.
His descendants cannot acquire that knowledge from him.
We have to teach them like we taught him.
So seeking knowledge has always been respected in human society.
And in Islamic Society, in particular, from the very beginning.
The promises made a promise, it is so now of the ultimate reward for those who embark on the quest for knowledge by informing them that Allah I've made it a route to paradise.
Men Salah cattolica temi, Sophie elmen, whoever takes a path seeking knowledge. So hello, ma Hello, today, Jenna, law will make his or her path to paradise.
Consequently, he made seeking knowledge, a religious obligation on every Muslim. We all know the fallible Elmi or a bottle, Allah, a Muslim, seek seeking knowledge is the religious obligation on every.
However, the problem is I did advise that we focus on useful and beneficial knowledge, as opposed to the concept of knowledge for the sake of knowledge,
like the rover on Mars,
why is it there?
Why did they spend billions of dollars to land that rover on Mars?
Send the first object that flew
on the planet outside of the earth, the helicopter life.
they're searching for life on Mars.
People are dying on the earth today. And now I'm here searching for life on Mars.
It's not to say that knowledge of life on Mars, you know, or they're going to find out is that
probably either life didn't exist there and it no longer exists. Or they do find life there. But it is.
Oh, no consequences formed on there which could have been meteorites from the earth that came and hit. There are so many other different ways it could happen.
in the end,
what will it do for us? Because we found a few microbes on Mars. It means that life exists elsewhere in the universe. So it means that we were not that we were just an accident that proves we were just an accident.
Accidents don't happen more than once.
This, spending billions and billions to do this. April jumping and screaming we did it. We did it.
Millions are dying on the earth. The COVID
those billions spent
To improve the health care system of the world,
there's a huge difference.
knowledge for the sake of knowledge, well, it's not quite for the sake of knowledge, there it is, to prove
that we are here by accident, this is really what's at the bottom.
So the Romans, himself used to teach us to seek refuge from this.
And that knowledge from my eyes at this point in time is useless knowledge. Later on, in fact, it useful knowledge, not saying that knowledge, you know, what's happening on the on Mars, etc. In case we run out of space on earth, and we need to move to Mars, you know, move to another habitable planet, to have knowledge about that planet, know how we'll be able to establish habitat on the planet.
It's good useful them. Now, it's useless.
Process animals said, in slides used to make regularly alone in me are also becoming elmen ly and far, all along, I seek refuge in You from knowledge which is
also made conveying knowledge from him a religious obligation.
The Dawa, we spoke about before conveying that knowledge from him, which was from Allah,
the Divine Name have
talked about the importance of power, that means conveying the message.
proof that this is a community of the nation obligation can be found in the crime itself. It's who are Ali Imran, or it's 104 Walter cominco, oma, you're the owner in anyway, I'm Marina Del Mar, roofie and hona. And in Moncure,
that there arise among you, a group inviting to all that is good, and joining righteousness, forbidding evil.
Those are the successful ones.
On the other hand, the individual obligation of dialogue can be seen indicated in the verse. So we're not 100 verse 125, or early last year up because it might take a while more and that can
alter the way of your Lord, you each individual call to the Lord with wisdom, and good.
So as we mentioned earlier, in case this instruction was perceived as limited to only certain individual groups, like scholars, or professionals,
departments are selling itself broaden the scope of responsibility by making it the individual responsibility of everyone who had any knowledge, saying, Billy, oh, Annie, will
convey whatever you have learned from me, even if it's only a simple verse.
Furthermore, whenever the Prophet Moses Allah, just people used to say to them,
you better live a showerhead alive.
But in the show, I saw and you will live out man who are our lovely women,
that those present convey what they heard those absent for perhaps he may inform one better able to understand it, and in
conveying that knowledge, passing it on.
The best of you
are not just those who learn the
But those who have made that right and a ritual
need to go through and complete the Quranic text just reciting it not knowing a single thing rather than it just become
rites and rituals, especially parties also
have been completed
believing that okay
They have this quad is going to help the rest of the family get into debt.
This is not the deal.
This is Satan, tricking people into thinking that these external acts can in fact, save us.
Moving on to the last principle, the fourth principle of giving up dog to have fear where there is a warning, the Divine Names of knowledge
in and of themselves do not contain any direct one. However, a lion saw from the Quran
and His Messenger in his Sunnah openly warned against the great sin of hiding knowledge.
mentioning a laws curse on those who hide knowledge
I did in the various ways that prevent people from receiving
in their Levine afternoon ama and cell nominum beja natual houda d, those who hide the clear messages, guidance, embodiment by a nonhuman Nassif will keytab.
After I've made it clear to people in the Scripture,
like a law, we allow no human lie No. Those are cursed by Allah and cursed by all
the Mohammed sauce and I'd say said wherever hides knowledge by which a lot benefits people in their affairs of religion,
Allah would bridle him on the day of just their resurrection of judgment
with a bridle from the help,
that's how brave is the sin
of hiding knowledge.
So, this is motivation
to spread knowledge
rather than keeping it to oneself.
Even though we have a tradition amongst
some of the ignorance
to prevent people from learning this knowledge, learning the knowledge of the deen
when the Quran was first translated, people opposed tooth and nail who which people, scholars, because, you know, their position was that
the Quran is in Arabic. So it should not be
explained in any other languages just Arabic. And it's the reading of the Quran. This is what is important.
It's not on them to understand, we will explain it to them.
So they wanted to keep this knowledge only amongst the very small closed circle. But technology made the knowledge available in spite of efforts to prevent it from spreading. Now, it's very easy to go on Google, find the meaning of verses etc. English translations of the Quran, you know, it's at our fingertips
in spite of those who wanted to keep it only for themselves, so others will always have to come to them. It will be resources, of course, it's good business a money to pay to be paid. Get this knowledge
we're going to close our session now by calling on a lie using these names
as it exists
so now and then our simple blocks. Yeah, I mean, yeah, I limit.

You can do this on your radio and take aside those verses.
And I actually many of the verses may not even be clearly positive but once you reflect on them you can see the positivity they're not negative
they're explaining things which you might say well positive and negative but with deeper thought you might find it no positive guidance
so perhaps you do a search on Google

But a lot of help is completely there.
How it is manifest, it depends on vary from person to person, circumstance, circumstance.
So, the better approach is to make dua for a lot of help. and be patient with whatever it is.

about a law

allies most high
law rules about just throwing
more literal translation

Now, this is something we discussed earlier
if we tried to understand the law,
on the basis of our understanding of this world,
and that's all that we're able
Because we can't understand what he's not from this world. And our knowledge is limited to this world.
what happens though is that when we try to apply this knowledge, knowledge of this world,
we run into problems because we make him then like us.
So when Allah describes himself as being above this room,
or he rose about this room, were thinking that if you rose above your head to again below and then you went above, that's how it works in our
are limited worlds.
But in that limited, limitless world,
existence which are law created,
remember, all of its creation
then the rising
or the descending etc, which is mentioned in different verses, or
hobbies, etc. We have to not try to interpret it according to
this world's four dimensions, up, down, right left.
You have to stay away from that
Because then it just brings a whole set of confusion
trying to understand
it on. Understandable.
We don't have any questions right now from our Instagram
students. Hopefully we'll have some shortly.
always allowed to be
performed and what are the benefits of performing it? Well, you know, a lot because there are a number of different narrations. And in each narration, there's a different way.
Because of that, many scholars felt that it's not authentic.
And even if it is, does have a thread of authenticity, Then which of the ways should you choose? So
I don't recommend the practice of Salatu
I've done some transcriptions of your lectures in IOU
Sharma benefits you want me to do the transcription of these lectures is

it's not necessary because the lectures have been fully written up.
And they as I mentioned, at the end of our series will be
finally finally edited and published as a text. So if we're just simply audio then definitely I would welcome the offer to transcribe
and appreciate that perhaps some of my other lectures on YouTube
you may want to check some of those other lectures and
do a transcription like my lectures on the Magnificent Seven
Seven were shaded by a lot thrown
on the day when there will be no shade but the shade on the throne

can I make the Nia of Salah in my own language?
The Nia Of course,
there is no special format
in Arabic, but suppose Arsalan taught for the nia. Nia is your intention?
And you have to think that intention you have to have that intent. If you want to say it, of course, it's not from this
not recorded this or not, at the console seven said is intention or the
Sahaba made verbal, honorable intentions for prayer. This is not from this
fact, many scholars consider this to be
And it's something which came from teaching children you know, because children will tend to run into prayer without thinking or even being aware which prayer they're making. So they taught them to say in me no way to Sandia albaraka rT
study and Eman
temblor something like this, I tend
for you and it's a prayer behind the mom facing the block,
You don't have to do that. I mean, if you walk into the masjid
You're walking in there for what?
For the word? Yeah. Okay. You have to say I'm intending to pray to her. You're walking in already for over
um, you're going to pray behind the amount. That's why you came to my studio not praying at home. You're not the amount
we have to say, I intend to pray behind.
The Masjid is set up in such a way that you know supplies identified and people line up facing the Qibla. So, we have to say I intend to pray behind the
door facing the Qibla. Now see this is something which has become widespread
mainly for people on the shaft a school
of thought not that the man shaft a topic.
They call it shuffling practice. But mama shaft aim so didn't teach this. This is not in his

and say it in your language, bangla

What name is most commonly thought to be a name of Allah? But is in fact not one of them.
I have a number of friends up to question
but it's like
tres asks, Is it permissible to pray for non Muslim relatives and friends to be guided? Yes, not recommended

So, my IoT degrees have been criticized
by some who point out that students who learn online a lot
so far okay teachers
that this deviates
or devalue society education What is your take on that?
Well, you know,
people can say anything.
of course, having a teacher in front of you,
who you sit with
and learn with
is super superior to go into a classroom and the teacher delivers
you can sit with
you got the message, you wrote down the teacher
online study where the teacher appears on the screen
you can discuss with him, he provides the knowledge, there are others you can discuss with but
the basic knowledge is there the books are available, etc. Studying you gain the knowledge etc.
put down or denigrate
knowledge, which is not given in
the most traditional way
And I actually share the master dinner with Danny, the greatest
happiness of our time
was criticized in similar way.
He lived in the library,
studying books of Hadith and so on. So did
he it just earlier on, but, you know, when he began his major research, he just did, like,
someone is his teacher with books.
So, you can't depend on his knowledge.
But the word that is done is recognized by scholars all around the world.
So, in the end,
it is what you have gained,
and how you apply what you have again,
because, as I said, those people who used to study by
as I say,
sitting under a tree
while them the teacher would be there.
And he would sit around him and he would teach
You lived with him.
Compound lives with you
ate with him, spoke with him. You're advised by him.
This is superior
to going to a school, something in a classroom. A teacher comes, he teaches you and he goes you can ask him questions.
Mostly comes in teacher answers from questions and
is not responsible for your terrible
upbringing is not their molding and guiding and so on. So they could down classroom teachers,
People who did this get a position is that that's what they end up with Boko Haram, the western style of education in classrooms and this is
western style education.
This is extreme, extreme thoughts. The bottom line is you know, brother, you've done your Bachelors of Arts in Islamic Studies. I studied your material. Well. It well on you
As the new taught
the people of your area you know you had assignments to do to help teach pass on that knowledge all those four years of study and you went and did that master's
and as Masters of Arts in Islamic Studies and you further talk further studied and
you know what you have gained
what is your worry?
People will always have something to say
your worry is how best Can I convey this knowledge to others that's what you're worried
Don't worry about people talk. They will always talk to your boy in the grave.
Even after that some people talk at your grave and talk after they've left the cemetery
is this new day when people talk about the process? It was a fake there was a you know magician
or a whatever Keeler
they call them okay.
But that started
it mean that simply because they detracted from me they tried to put him down always mean that he was what they felt what they said no, he just had tunnel vision

So that's where you need to focus you know

Zero data I'm seeking a pathway from my master's engineering management degree to PhD in Islamic Studies.
Well, I think it's best to discuss with Professor Eisen
from the UK, who is the Deputy Vice Chancellor of academics,
he can advise you,
perhaps, taking the bridge to master's
program, which helps those wanting to go into masters
who didn't have Islamic Studies backgrounds.
Helped me bridge him to the master's program. Perhaps it's relevant as a bridge to PhD.
