This is session 23
and we'll be looking in this session at name number 32 elbow fear
they're all seeing all perceiving
now this name
mentioned in the grind some 42 times in
Mashallah, among them, we have
in the who, who was semi on Basia
in terms of its meaning.
Allah fear comes from the trilateral route
by bas faad, an RA
is based on or derived from
And it's said to have four meanings. The first meaning is to see or notice.
And the second to understand as an English we say, Do you see what I mean?
The third meaning is to have insight
or to perceive.
And the fourth is to be precisely aware.
The root buzzer appears 148 times in the Quran. In 10 derived forms.
bossier is the intensive form
on the file pattern of the present participle Basir.
One who sees or is here are you seeing
similar to other Divine Names like Rahim, alim Kabir, an Al Aziz, relative to Allah this Divine Name al Bashir refers to both the perfection and the totality of a laws seeing which cannot be compared with the seeing of any other creative being.
I've been a
student of everything
from the 13th century 13th 14th century, described the meaning of Alba theory as the one who due to the perfection of his sight, sees the details of the creation of a small and limbs and body parts. Its flesh blood
Brain and its capillaries. He sees its footprints on a smooth Black Rock, in the middle of a moonless night.
The point to note, as we mentioned in the case of a smear.
Some early philosophers and theologians
who collectively are referred to as the Morteza lights,
who gain sway over the oma during the eighth and 10th centuries
were influenced by Greek philosophy, which led them to deny both the Divine Name al Bashir
they all sing as well as the corresponding attributes
of seeing on the basis that seeing requires seeing apparatuses that his eyes in creatures. Therefore, if we attribute seeing to a law, it implies that Allah has eyes or seeing apparatuses of some sort, like his creatures.
Consequently, they claim that this Divine Name was a purely metaphorical usage of the meaning of seeing not to be taken literally, and that its actual meaning is all knowing.
However, as was previously stated,
We already have a clear statement of a law in this matter, which we can apply as a general rule in all such circumstances, laser commits the Shea, while who was semi on Basia,
there is nothing similar to him.
But he is the all hearing and all seeing
easily comprehensible. For those who want to comprehend for those who want to argue for those who want to find other aspects, inners and outers, and they whatever's, of course, yeah, everything becomes confusion, everything becomes unclear. So on one hand, in this verse, Allah denies that any part of his creation resembles himself. That's clear, late second myth, he shade
and on the other hand, he affirms that he sees all and here is all.
Well, what's semir on Basu? A semir they're all hearing about you, they all see.
So he affirms His attributes, after saying there's nothing similar to him.
So the question which the philosophers want to dabble in is how a loss hears and sees.
But this is not for us to contemplate, to debate or investigate, as we can never find out. In reality, knowing the house would make us equal to our even greater than Allah. May Allah protect us from such misguided thoughts.
And the prophets, I send them a description of the jail, the Antichrist, he said, in the whole hour, he is blind, in one eye, we're in a rock back home less than the hour. And your Lord is not blind in one eye.
The prophet SAW Selim didn't have any problem, clarifying in this fashion,
speaking in Arabic to people who understood Arabic,
who were not Greek based philosophers,
but who took Arabic as it was.
Consequently, orthodox mainstream Muslim scholars affirmed that Allah has eyes befitting His Majesty in divinity without going into any details of what they look like,
how they operate,
like the proverbial eye of the storm.
We use this
phrase in English, and nobody thinks that if we go and look, we're going to see an eye with eye apparatus and all this. We don't we just talk about the eye of the storm, the center, the main point, focal point
in that ilahi were in 1980, Roger one.
Anyway, let's move on to even Bob Paul's four principles.
The first of which is
to adopt where applicable
As a law sees all of our suffering, and alleviates it in the best ways possible. We likewise should see to those in need in our locality, as well as all around the world.
We should support relief organizations and charities engaged in tackling various crisis and natural calamities, wars, famines, etc. By setting up funding and running charitable projects, in every corner of the world.
In this way, we're acting like a mafia, but on our level.
So we should be motivated by this Divine Name albizia. to strive to become among those few righteous souls who have dedicated their lives and resources to alleviating the suffering of humans, which exists everywhere on earth. And in all levels of society, rich and poor.
We saw the early companions, reaching out to help those who
abubaker by buying the freedom of the land,
and so on and so forth, amongst the companions.
They understood this from the very beginning,
as Alba seer, not only sees our calamities,
we should not only see the calamities around us talk about them, etc.
What did what does he do? He finds solutions. So we
also should find solutions for those who are in trials around the world.
we should adopt this Divine Name by looking out for needy Muslims of our own localities, as well as Muslim and non Muslim communities around the world. Because help is to humanity. Of course, we begin with our own family. And we go outside of it. But we actually begin at home. As I say, charity begins at all, a normally been Bashir, he quoted the prophet SAW Solomon saying, The similitude of believers in regards to mutual love, mercy and mutual affection is that of one body.
method. Just study
when any of its limbs ache, is stuck. Men who are the one
the whole body aches, the God love who saw it and just said
it's so hard when
the rest of the whole body aches due to sleeplessness and fever. This is the similitude with the problems are some of them gave up the oma.
This Divine Name contains a strong encouragement
to be always charitable, as the prophet SAW Salaam was, especially in the month of Ramadan. And in the last 10 days and nights, he demonstrated the highest examples of charity and reminded us in numeracy.
He reminded us to not fear poverty.
Telling us my Naka sought for the opportune mean that charity does not decrease wealth
and we can't hear that enough.
This we need to put
picture with a frame, put it on our walls. We see it when we were leaving our homes. We see it when you come back in our homes. It's just a bell ringing in our heads. My NACA SOT sadhaka tune, Minh man,
charity does not increase wealth.
So that becomes a reality.
That not that we accepted philosophically.
Okay, of course we do have to do that. But more importantly, that we accept it emotionally and spiritually.
We accept it as a reality
that we need to live,
live in accordance with and be sure that if we can live in accordance with the meaning of this powerful Hadeeth
we will be among the charitable, whom Allah elevates to be in his paradise.
So we shouldn't fear poverty.
As charity doesn't reduce read, instead it increases it.
This is the reality
we should also spend to receive
the promise Our solemn quoted Allah as saying,
Paul Allahu, in phip Yagna Adam, and fitclick
Allah said, spend in charity, Oh son of Adam, and I will spend on you
spend in charity, and I will spend on you.
When we spend in charity a lot spends on us.
Thus, our wealth will increase in quantity, and in blessings.
whatever we want,
we're keen about getting something
we feel it's very important, it's good, it's beneficial, whatever.
Given charity, give as much as you can in charge. And Allah insha Allah will make a way.
If it's good for you, He will make away for it.
If it's not good for you, because you might think this is the greatest thing, I really need to have this I
needed I want it.
I will only be happy unless I get it.
But maybe it's really not good for us.
The progress on sentiment also taught taught us to treat our ill those who are sick illnesses, with charity. Meaning that if we become ill we should give charity as a means of treating the disease or curing the illness or speeding up the recovery. Byelaws intervention, Tao model bauckham the subtle
feature sick with charity.
And of course as we've mentioned previously,
the process of them instructed us to give charity to gain or loss forgiveness for our citizens. A setup or two toot fatale hottie Come on Matt wood now.
Charity obliterates in
the way, water extinguishes fire.
lol baseer loves those who use the abilities he gave them for his sake. Did Allah gives you eyes to look at forbidden things, or to work in unpermitted businesses?
Did he give you the blessing of understanding and having insight
like when you study for you to be lazy, and not care?
Ask him to help to help us to use our insight and our sight for only the things which pleased him.
The second principle of even batal
a mom even bottle is to confirm where the name is unique. And in aplicable
actually, right from the first one, we're looking to adopt it. We're identifying what aspects of it are inactive
So in the second principle, we now focus on the applicability of the name.
What aspects of it are so unique, that human beings cannot
claim this for themselves, or for the creation. So this name, once understood in its fullness, has to be confirmed as unique to Allah and confined to Him alone, as none of his creatures is all Seeing
none, even the angels in their splendor and greatness, as described by the prophets on Sunday, who said, I've been granted permission to speak about one of the angels of Allah, one of the bearers of the throne,
the distance between his air lobes, and his shoulders is the distance of 700 year journey, obvious 700 year journey.
That's just inconceivable. In spite of that,
they're all not all seeing, they're going to see a veloce creation what he permits them to see.
Instead, the believers should be highly motivated to focus on the positive side of the fact that the Lord sees us all the time. And strive for the highest levels of excellence in faith, known as
sn, as we remember, is to worship Allah, as if we see him.
And even though we don't see him, we worship Him, knowing that he sees us. This is that level, that is called level spiritual level known as maraca. This activity, of being conscious of a law, watching us
being aware of whatever we do,
this state of maraca causes us to be deliberate in our decisions, not hasty rushing, jumping into things.
taking steps carefully, thinking about the consequences.
This is the way the believer is supposed to be.
we should strive for this. This name should motivate us to strive to achieve ersan or it's gone.
striving for excellence.
Knowing that Allah sees everything we do, should encourage us to be more devoted in our worship, more righteous in our deeds, more kind in our dealings with others. This is why the books on Solomon said, excellence in faith is to worship your Lord, as if you see him.
And though you do not see him, worship Him, knowing that he sees you.
We should strive for your son, in every act of worship we engage in otherwise, what is the point? Who are we fooling? The promises are solid informed us that some people pray, and no reward is recorded for them.
The Companion of the prophet SAW Selim was told to repeat his prayer three times. Because each time he repeated it and came back the bumps on set him sent him to do it again. Because his prayer was of no value.
So what does that tell us? That cultural Islam consisting of empty rituals, has no value in the sight of Allah.
And, of course,
excellence in the workplace. We've spoken about the excellence imperative is not restricted just to our religious duties.
But it is just as much required in our businesses and offices.
On many occasions, when I was involved in Dawa, and businesses in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia,
dollar to non Muslims
in these companies, and this was like in the 80s, early 90s, these companies would the people were
They're would derisively commend to me that their bosses and their senior management pray all the time.
But they don't do their jobs properly. And they don't pay them on time.
So what message are we sending to them? We're returning them off is that by not treating them
in the way which Islam calls to paying them before the sweat dries on their foreign?
Now we are delaying their payments. Even people were making business out of that. The big problem which existed in southern the Gulf in general, were the financial departments were delaying the salaries so they could get
you know, interest off it before paying the workers.
Workplace protocol requires that workers work as hard as possible. When the boss is around, and relax when he is not. This is the standard cat and mouse game.
When the cat's away, the mice will play and Muslim worker is required to work hard all the time. Otherwise, his salary is haram.
Based on his contract,
the prophet Hamza sanlam quoted Ayesha sorry, the process alum was quoted by Asia or the law saying in the law, tada, you're hibou either I mean, I had to comb Milan and it's gonna, indeed the law loves
law most high notes whenever any one of you does something, he or she perfects it,
that is they do it to the best of their ability. This is the proper work ethic for the Muslim
based on the Divine Name, I will see
principle of living batal is finding hope, where there is promise. The fact that Allah sees all things should encourage the believer to persevere in spite of difficulties or in justices. As the all seeing Alba's here, he reassures us that Nothing escapes his sight. Everything will be accounted for all wrongs will be made right? Even in this life, or at the end of this life.
It is this hope, which gives us the strength to persevere patiently
along of us here reassured the provinces and I'm saying, What's the hook me Robic for inaka bi union.
So wait patiently for your Lord's decree. For surely you are in our site.
We should trust in albizia. At all times. This is part of the
promise that exists in Basia with what it should produce in us It should produce trust trusted Allah.
Allah Basir this trust is the foundation of hope in all circumstances, because where do we get hope from when we trust that things will be in a certain way, in a way that we need them to be? Then we have hope. When we don't trust then you can have hope. You have distrust. Instead, he sees every object
and sorrow we face and everything others do to us. He Alba's here is the only one
who only gives us what is good for us at all times. Therefore, we have no choice but to submit and put our trust in Him. Only. Albus here says
TOEIC Allah Allah Allah Aziza Rahim put your trust in the mighty, the Merciful. Allah de jaragua hain at the home with Dr. Lu Baca, fifth Saturday.
He who sees you when you stand up to pray, and in your prostration among those who bow in frustration
now the fourth principle
have even batol is fear, where there is a warning.
This Divine Name on bossier contains a severe warning, along with its abundance of hope,
and trust building promises.
Knowing that the law is the all seeing, meaning that Nothing escapes him.
He sees all of our sins
at the same time that he sees the sins of all of his creatures.
It is a reminder of the judgment to come, in which everyone will be held accountable for what they did in this life.
Though Allah Al Bashir saw everything we did, and forgot nothing of what we have done.
He will have our body parts bear witness against us, as a means of further degradation.
on that fateful day of judgment,
yo mutters How do I lay him and Senato? Id here for our julho
Bhima can we I'm alone, on the day of judgment, when their tongues, their hands and their feet, will bear witness against them as to their actions.
And they will ask, why.
They were commanded by Allah.
And Allah goes on to say in Surah facilite verse 20,
until when they reach the Hellfire, they're hearing and their eyes and their skins will testify against them,
of what they used to do Hata into magia
gyla him summer home, what are the sorrow home? What do you do? We mark can we amanu
they will say to their skins, why have you testified against us, and they will say we were made to speak by a law was made everything speak and he created you the first time and to him You are returned.
Therefore, this warning of coming, every coming time in which our body parts will witness against us. added to the fact that they'll miss your site all should make us worried and cautious. It should help to prevent us from continuing to commit sins.
consequent to all of this we should seek refuge in
because there's just so much out there so much we don't control so much. We
from all sides. If we just focus on our problems, then it seems there's no way out. But we are encouraged to seek refuge in Al Bashir.
Since Allah is taking everyone to account for everything we do, there is no escape from him, except to seek refuge from our own sins,
all of which he has already seen
a lot in his messenger. I've taught us to do that by seeking refuge in our theory using a list the other that is saying I will be near him in a shaytani regime.
I seek refuge in Allah from Satan. The Cursed, seeking refuge in Allah has also been prescribed in some Quranic verses as a means of warding off evil forces demonic forces, devils, which may drag us into sin and even ship

From their assembly in their presence.
On one occasion problem I was on seven had said regarding a man whose face had become red with anger ready to explode?
in me, the RF who can imagine?
Now no color ha la habana, who a lady.
Indeed, I know some words which would cause his anger to subside if he said that.
He went on to say he should say our Billahi min ash shaytaan evergy
This is something
all of us
end up in anger
at our wives, or husbands, or our children, relatives in our own parents sometimes anger that we should say anything but anger is all around us. That's why they brought on some of it said that the truly strong person is the one able to control his anger
and control of anger is not something which comes overnight. It's something we have to work on, strive for. But it is attainable.
One of the ways to help us
manage this anger anger management is to say I was Billahi min ash shaytaan energy, say it, understand it and mean it.
It is authentically recorded that before the recitation of the opening chapter of the Quran in our formal prayers in the Salawat runza seldom used to say I would have been 90 min ash shaytani r Rajim manaphy when Effie hanzi
I seek refuge in Allah from the pride, poetry and prodding

something worth adding to our
as it is full of
meaning and depth,
tackling the challenges that we face
with the satanic forces around us.
Among the most powerful Quranic formulas for seeking refuge are the last two chapters of the Quran.
collectively referred to as the more our with a time.
According to a number of authentic reports in the Sunnah, these two chapters were initially revealed specifically to break a magical spell, which had been placed upon the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in Medina.
The prophet SAW Sam's wife Aisha also reported that whenever any of the members of the household became physically ill, Allah as messenger used to blow over them, reciting the more our with a time
the two means of time with of seeking refuge.
The process I'm also taught a number of prayers of Exorcism of cleansing, incorporating the is the other for a variety of occasions. Some were to cure illnesses caused by the jinn and others were to just Ward them off. For example, the prophet SAW sanlam
taught us to recite as a means of spiritual cleansing. exorcism Bismillah you brique
when colada in yes feek.
Amen Sherry has it in either hazard
were shattered equally the I in
the name of Allah, may he make you well,
and may cure you from every evil
from the evil of the jealous when they are envious, and from the harm of the evil eye.
This is how it said when reciting it over somebody else if you're saying it for yourself, instead of saying this Millay you break you say
In the name of Allah.
May He make me well
said Bismillah AR peak
and again this is for others for yourself you say RP
Min kuraly dot min coalition in you rini Oh you think

and Sherry has it in either hazard
Oh couldn't win Saturday cold enough sin our iron in Hassidim Allahu yes fique this may lie.
May Allah cure you, In the name of Allah, I exercise you.
I cleanse you. Now the term exercises
not in most people's vocabulary so it may be a bit clumsy, clumsy, but what's meant by exercising is a cleaning. It's a cleansing. Cleansing was a spiritual cleansing as opposed to physical.
Rosa Selim also thought I would be can imagine like mighty men could unleash a bomb in Wareham, amen Cooley, I'm in lamb.
I seek refuge with the perfect words of Allah, from every devil, poisonous pest and every harmful evil eye.
a body of
in cancer, incantations, recitations, readings, cleansing, which came from us to the last thoughts on them.
And they're clear
what they mean
and how it was used.
What we can see is that in nowhere among them, are there any instructions to recite and blow on water and drink it
or to recite and blow on oil and rub it on our bodies or other people's bodies
or to recite Quranic
verses, write them on paper or write them on plates in saffron, pour water on it, and then drink it etc.
However, there is a large body of such practices, which have built up over the centuries, which were never done by the prophets also lemonis companions
or their students rokeya pharmacies have appeared.
Spirit the spirit appeared, you know, offering spiritual healing. This is a spiritual healing business. And it's being conducted and transacted on a massive scale in stores around the Muslim world selling black seed. Honey, of course, these are mentioned in so now, good, good for us in the Quran, honey.
They sell Korans and grandstands, prayer rugs and other Islamic paraphernalia. But then they have a whole section of water that has been blown on by chef this one ship that one ship the other one. And depending on the status of the ship, the more expensive it gets.
I mean, whether it's really true that it was blown on by this shirt, or that shirt or whatever, Lord knows best. But even so even if it's true. The point is, where is that from the sun? Where did that come from?
It's good business.
But it's not Islam.
What the prophet SAW Selim has given us is sufficient for us, it shouldn't be sufficient for us. Because he said Matera to say and eukanuba Malala in our article, I've not left anything, which will bring you closer to Allah without telling you to do.
So if this was going to help us, bring us closer to Allah, keep the satanic forces etc, away from us. He would have been the first to tell us, but he didn't. And this is not a matter of technology. Because we can say, Well, he didn't use the microphone either.
but we're using them now.
Well, that's technology that wasn't available, then there wasn't an option. So, he preferred not to use it.
In this case,
blowing on water and water is available, he could have done it in a bowl of water or in a pot of water could have done
all of that could have been done. But he did.
So what the prophet SAW Selim has given us should be sufficient for us.
We need to stop where the prophets on Solomon's companions and their students stop
as there is already more than enough in the authentic Sunnah to fulfill our needs for spiritual treatment, or spiritual ailments, more than
and Yes, Chef falon chef Alon may have done it, or does it or whatever. But in the end, we have to ask, did Rasulullah saw them do it?
And if he wasn't doing it, then it's better not to do it.
As soon as soon as archaea hear the Sunnah of not doing it. And that's what we need to follow.
So we will close our session
calling on Allah using these names. Oh Allah. Yeah, boss here. We know you see every breath we take
and every move we make. So please help us to be conscious of our deeds, and to use our sight and insight only in the ways that please you. yasir make us grateful for the blessings of our senses. By using them in ways pleasing to you and protect us from all evil deeds connected with them. Yeah, Allah support us in everything and in doing everything with excellence
whether in our worship or our worldly affairs
and help us to achieve the ultimate goal

dealing with questions
first question from madiha.
Chef catties Is it necessary to stand all night
and Layla to other you don't know which one's better to other anyway
that's not the case when to stand all night meaning to stand in prayer all night Is that necessary? Know
You do what you can if you feel strong and whatever you want to stay up all night in prayer
do it and inshallah you get the reward for it.
If you on the other hand are tired, you've been working a long day etc. You can't do it you don't have the strength to do it. Then you do what you can and you're rewarded for what you can
what can we as an oma do to help the current situation of goods make dua
What should we do? That's another story.
What should the oma do this, the oma should come together and fix that situation.
You know as part of the gun
rule ruler or Prime Minister of Turkey is saying
if Al Aqsa falls
Medina is going to fall next. And if Medina falls, maca is going to fall next.
we have to draw the line
alongside the third of the three holy masters in Islam, only in the sense that
we are specifically rewarded for setting out in journeys to them. Other masjids the people are going left and right and where the saints are buried and all kinds of things but
This is not from Islam
it's just people's doings. We need
we need to defend.
we as individuals, we can talk all we want we can post on Facebook, we can post on Instagram we can post on YouTube and post and post and post and post but it's not going to change the reality. I'm not saying don't say anything of course but don't waste massive energies you know jumping up and down with your your placards and marching and you know fight getting into fights with the police and people getting killed unnecessarily No, we don't need to go there.
What we can do is to do our best to uplift oma, where we are.
Animal an uplifted oma, an elevated oma
in the future can come together and deal with such problems. When we were one oma
you know, they call it the empire of faith, we were one empire of faith,
whether it was under the mermaids, or the bassetts, or the Ottomans, when we were one oma, then the world could not
harmless individually, because
if any part of that Omar was hurt, and the people cried out, was heard the message got back, Wilma came behind.
one nation amongst the Muslim world can't do anything, can't actually step in and say stop.
They can't. So all they can do is appeal in the UN and, you know, make statements and
can support or not support or whoever, this country or that country.
But in the end, you know, it's, it's saying that we know, it's not right. It shouldn't be done, we've said it.
But we need to do more than that. And that can only be done by us focusing on our own areas, the areas of influence that you and I have,
the university, International University, this is my effort for
elevating the Muslim Ummah, giving them knowledge, providing them with this knowledge, so that they could in the future, turn things around,

there are some students of knowledge in the West,
like Hamza sources were totally against
presentations on the miracles
of the Quran, in the scientific miracles in the Quran
that are, you know, promoted by a variety of
Different people, Morris book, I was one of the first to write about it.
And Dr. Zakir Naik has also written on it.
I've given talks about elements of it.
but the Hamza sources and others
are against, using
the evidences that exist in the class.
As proof of an aspect of the miracle of the Quran is, of course, primarily the miracle of the Quran is a linguistic miracle.
That's the reality. That's where the essence of the miracle lies. But there are other aspects of it, which have
evidence, you know, talking about things
in terms of chart this discernible
1000s of years before, it's time,
before people came to actually know.
people gonna have different opinions about this. And that was the same thing with using the Bible.
When giving Dawa,
quoting from the Bible, to Christians,
you know, there's different discussions that developed around this. And we've said, No, no, no, no, Solomon, told Omar to get rid of the book, he was using something from the Torah, get rid of it.
if Moses was here, he would follow me.
So don't go into the Torah, seeking knowledge, which you don't have.
If you're looking at it in terms of verification, of what we have further verification, and it can be used to clarify the common origin of the Quran, and the existing Torah or the Gospels or whatever, then there's no harm.
But we should be clear that Yeah, you know, we this is not certain knowledge
or it has its limitations, we should know where those limitations are. Similarly, with the scientific miracles
are apparent scientific miracles,
they can have
other interpretations as possible. Although this is what has been shown has been shown to be no legitimate interpretations.
Fear being that if we tie the Quranic verses to science, scientific development, scientific knowledge,
science is always changing.
You know, it's not fixed. As new information comes ideas change. So it's, it's in a process. So now, if you
came in at one point and held on to that and said, Look, this is proof This is divine, and then changed what they're going to say then
problematic, it could put the Quran, you know, in a compromised
situation, a core compromised position. So it has its
logic and reason for avoiding
tying the Quran to certain scientific theories, which are not facts, but are just theories,
From our Instagram team, students are necklaces and bracelets would potamus hand around?

So I think if you just go there,
maybe there's two or three lectures on the topic.
There's overlapping because maybe it's a repeated lecture. Or maybe they just kept one. I don't know exactly what the situation is. I haven't gone into the website there. People are looking after it for some time.
But perhaps you can get it yourself. Otherwise you can get the help of sister email

Okay, from Instagram.
Do we have
any questions from our Instagram? team? students?
Nope. Can you please explain the history of mustard and
the history of mustard and oxa.
I personally don't know
all of the history.
When Muslims took over that part of the world,
the masjid was reestablished there.
I don't know whether there was a structure that they added to etc. But it was an estimation.
was known there was already a
where the masjid was built was away from the church. And all my
colleagues at the time
been very careful to make sure that the church was not demolished in order to
re establish mustard in Oxford.
That's general information that I that I recall.
Okay, Bibi Salam Salma is smile, do angels come to the home when people have pictures.
And people have pictures in albums or elsewhere. They're not on display.
I mean, of course, this is in reference to the fact that the brothers on sentiment said that the angels of mercy, you know, don't enter into homes in which there are pictures and it's understood from it that it was pictures on display, hanging
pictures and that's images of living
beings, human beings, animals, etc.
if it's kept
out of the way it's not held up and displayed etc. And in sha Allah This doesn't
violate the principle of the process element given.

I question is regarding the topic of divorce is not feeling content comfortable happy with your partner valid reason divorce them?
Well, it just depends on not What does not feeling content me.
There are times in every marriage where people are going to be unhappy times when they're going to be uncomfortable.
And there are times when they're going to be discontented.
So we're not going to say as soon as that exists, then you go ahead and get divorced. No, but where it becomes dominant becomes oppressive. When one feels, you know crushed
emotionally, psychologically, etc. Then these might be valid reasons.
So it may vary from person to person
and circumstance to circumstance.
Because somebody Zubair asks
about IID takbeer
Why are they contradicting? Yet the Sahaba prayed lots of prayer behind the Prophet. Why don't we stick to a single tech beer? Just like in other Sunnah prayers, a single cup takbeer I'm not really clear exactly. What's the point? Here? The point being
single deck beer, is that are you thinking that everybody's saying, you know, talk beer together
rather than some people saying at
odds with each other.
So you're suggesting that the single deck beer where everybody in the whole area, the mosque or the prayer ground? All says
at one time that this was so now well, we don't really have a clear so not
to say that that is what it was.
Okay, from our Instagram students, I wanted to ask about of repair, you said
that blowing on water or oil is not from the sun. But what it is
observed that using these things was more effective would still be wrong to use. But you know, the issue of more effectiveness.
shirtless for dinner is Bernie spoke about this,
that these matters are not like scientific matters.
you diagnose people with
depending on the reality
When you pick a certain surah, pick a certain verse. And when you find this verse has a greater effect, you use it more and so on
and the Sunnah in this matter? It's not It's not like, you know, experimental,
scientific approaches to
applying. So now, no promises and did it?
He didn't do it don't do it.
Better not to do it.
That's just the bottom line.
You know, in medicine, we don't operate like that.
You know, that's, if the doctor did it, you do it. If the doctor didn't do it, you don't do it? No, no, because maybe another doctors gonna do it. So it's different.
In science, okay, you give somebody something, medicine, it works defective, okay? You start to prescribe it to others.
if we do that this is opening the door for innovation wide open.
Because it was effective, because you found it effective.
possessing element, which possessed a patient that came to you, and you use this particular verse, and the person appeared to be cured, to say, this verse, did it.

How about arafa?
If in Makkah, is the ninth,
another home, it's the eighth. Wow, we're all the way to eat a lot.
can we fast on alpha?
And if so, can the following day be IID?
I cannot even
digest this question.
It's ninth in Makkah, and it's a third home, you go with NACA. You are there in Makkah, you do what the Meccans do.
This is the point
that we're doing, how evil it is eyes harm.
Others? Is there any scientific reasoning?
It's true, the agency of the
evil eye is not the eye itself
creating harm, but that the Djinn
can affect those
who are focused on by a particular individual.
Rashida rasheeda Abdul Rashid, I'm working on the test. How would I send it to you use the same

sister email Eman.
P a dot c at i o u
I'm glad to hear that you're working on the test.
And just for those of you that might be worried.
Sister Rashida is one of the instructors I owe you.
So you can be assured that her tests will be appropriate. I will look over them also.
So her intention is to have it ready by the IID. Or I guess, ready after eight. That's just after eight for the first 33 names.

And shallot tomorrow is not IID
if it's not then named 33 will be tomorrow.

A stranger is asking,
at what extent
the evolutionary theory our guess is to what extent
can we accept as Muslims, the evolutionary theory which is taught to us? Well, the bones, but they found
that show that dinosaurs existed,
you know, stegosaurs and all the other sores, Raptors and
To that extent,
There's no doubt about that we don't need to be denying, you know, what is fact?
Now how you determine it? How do you interpret it?
There comes the theory.
You know, Darwin's theory, did he, in fact,
bring a theory which handles all the issues? No.
He brought a theory which seemed to point in certain directions, etc. and on a general scope, you know, you can say, yeah, there's some relationships that appears to be, but
to say, as they say
were apes, monkeys, we share the same ancestor, as apes and monkeys.
that's a big claim.
And there's no evidence for that claim. Say but, you know, human beings share, like, you know, 90% of their genetic material with chimpanzees.
And we also share 80% of our
DNA and stuff with
So, where does that take us?
You know, so, this kind of, I mean, what the bottom line is that Allah
can take the same source,
Earth and create human beings, create animals, and whatever he wishes
and of course, they came from the same source and that sense,
but it doesn't mean that they're related to each other
in a descending order.
Question from the Instagram.
Is it permissible to donate sperm?
Is it permissible to donate sperm to donate sperm

Even if he had two wives
to take the sperm and ovum from one wife, and put that combination, you know, once the
ovum is fertilized, but that now in his second wife's womb, not allowed
her on, stop the only acceptable route, this is facilitating pregnancy for a man and his wife, that's all. It's not, you know,
women becoming, you know, birth mothers, of

I'm gently Sorry, my grandfather used to be very religious, when he stayed in Saudi.
Then when he moved back home, he changed completely. He doesn't fast, nor does he pray, what do I do? Make to
make do often just pray for him?
Try to bring over people who are from his age group, to visit to have dinner or lunch or whatever with you. And let them try to reach him. Because you as a young person, two generations later, very difficult for you to give Dawa to your grandfather. Very difficult.
So may I ask, can we celebrate IID even if the mosque predicted it, and didn't actually see the moon? If everybody is
following the calculations, and the community is going to celebrate it? Based on the moon calculations for the moon? scientists,
experts, astronomers say that age should be in your area at this time. You're following that? It's permissible.
It will though you didn't actually see the moon
Faisal Ali, can we look or can we cook food?
in wine? Some scholars say it's permissible. The rationale is due to the heat changing one form to another
changing the wind the wind the heat is that is is added then the wind evaporates?
Well, it's a shaky
It would only end up being considered because you can't go and buy wine. Even if you say I plan to hit it and you know it will evaporate No, you bought wines from finished End of story right there stop on the only situation is where you are eating with non Muslims.
And their cooking, they abuse wine in the cooking the heat and it evaporates, it leaves a kind of taste or whatever.
You know, can you have that? And as you said, scholars different regarding it.
Reality, of course is that no matter how much you eat, you're not going to get intoxicated.
No matter how much you will die first, before you become intoxicated. So on the basis of that argument, technically speaking, it is permissible to eat it.

Sight sight if reciting Quran in Arabic.
While we don't understand it,
no, no benefit of no benefit. What is the meaning of the Hadith says
we shouldn't make houses like grapes. graveyards read through Al Baqarah and
read it with understanding. That's what was intended.
It wasn't meant to just you reading the text and not understanding anything.
Because the reading of the Quran itself is about guidance.
I would say that reading should be accompanied with understanding and not just reading for the sake of reading
Estella as my dad asks, What do you use in your beard?
I use dark brown dye,
Can we curse and make dua against someone who damages us in an irrepairable manner? In case we have no other means to counter them.
ask Allah to curse them. They've done evil to us against us. Yeah, it's permissible to do so.
Of course, we can ask also a lot forgive them.
Looking at your circumstance, you can decide
for them is better to just forgive them forget it. Go to sleep with a peaceful heart
