Long while he will sell them, and on all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.

00:05:09--> 00:05:23

This is the 27th session in which we'll be looking at the name al haleem. The most forbearing the most gentle, which is named number 38. In our series,

00:05:24--> 00:05:44

relative to its place in the Quran, it's mentioned 11 times in the Koran among them, Allah We are alemu Murphy kulu become Akan Allahu Allah Amen. Halima ally knows what is in your hearts. Allah is all knowing, most forbearing

00:05:45--> 00:05:46

from the sun now

00:05:48--> 00:05:56

we have the narration of imminent bass in which he stated the prompts are seldom, most often used to say,

00:05:57--> 00:06:06

following supplications during calamities, La ilaha illa Allah allow them will haleem

00:06:08--> 00:06:13

there is no god worthy of worship besides Allah, the mighty, the most forbearing

00:06:15--> 00:06:26

in terms of its meaning linguistically, haleem comes from the trilateral route, half lamb meme, and the verbal noun hill

00:06:27--> 00:06:32

or Hellman, which is said to have three main meanings.

00:06:34--> 00:06:37

The first meaning is to be forbearing and lenient,

00:06:38--> 00:06:44

and to be forgiving. The second meaning is to be calm and serene.

00:06:46--> 00:06:52

The third meaning is to be not hasty, and to exhibit moderation.

00:06:54--> 00:06:58

The other master honeymoon means a dream.

00:07:00--> 00:07:09

haleem is the intensive form of the present participle had limb from the verb heluva

00:07:10--> 00:07:27

indicating an abundance of forbearance. This route appears 21 times in the Quran, in two derived forms. Examples of these forms are alarming, and her llama

00:07:29--> 00:07:36

lambing meaning dreams, Allah, Allah huduma meaning puberty

00:07:39--> 00:07:54

we should note that it is permissible to give human beings the name haleem. As in the case of Rahim, as Allah referred to Prophet Abraham, in that way.

00:07:55--> 00:08:18

Ibrahima Lao wa Hoon, Ali haleem Lau wa Hoon Ali, to sorry, that Oh, wow, hoon. haleem indeed, Abraham was compassionate. And forbearing Surah Tauba verse 114.

00:08:20--> 00:08:21

linguistically speaking,

00:08:22--> 00:08:30

Imam Al ghazali noted that there is a very subtle difference between L

00:08:31--> 00:08:37

and sobor. Both of them are understood to mean patience.

00:08:39--> 00:09:03

However, in the case of helm, it refers to the patience which arises from a deep sense of serenity and unhindered lenience. While in the case of sunburn, it refers to the patience that arises from self restraint and enduring something without complaint.

00:09:04--> 00:09:44

Last month, Allah Allah haleem observes open and secret disobedience to his explicit instructions, yet the rebellion of his creatures doesn't drive him to anger. Nor does it cause Raph to seize Him, or haste and recklessness, urge him to take immediate vengeance, even though he's completely capable of doing all of that, and of wiping out all of humankind and replacing them with others, as he has mentioned in the Quran in different locations.

00:09:45--> 00:09:48

A lot of haleem himself says

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

in takanobu law paradigm Hasina will dive who lakum welfare local well law, we shall

00:10:00--> 00:10:13

Rule haleem if you loan a lot a good liloan it will multiply it for you and forgive you. And the law is most appreciative, and forbearing

00:10:16--> 00:10:42

even though whatever is given already belongs to Allah, whoever gives it away for the pleasure of Allah, Allah haleem considers it alone to himself, which he promises to repay in abundance, along with forgiving a number of our sins in appreciation of our efforts, and in kindness from his generosity.

00:10:44--> 00:10:53

Why does al haleem delay punishment because Allah speaks about himself as doing that. He says,

00:10:55--> 00:11:18

Well, are you after the law with NASA de marca Sabu Matera Kala zaharia. Minda button, well, I can you are hero boom illa agilan summer. If a law were to punish people immediately for what they do, he would not have left upon the earth, any creature.

00:11:19--> 00:11:24

Instead, he gives them despite for a specified time.

00:11:25--> 00:11:55

A lot of hallein the most forbearing oftentimes delays are part punishments to give us ample time to return back to him, to seek His forgiveness and to change our ways, because he is naturally most forbearing. Sometimes he even cancels our punishments altogether. This clearly demonstrates that Allah haleem loves his creatures in ways that we cannot fathom.

00:11:59--> 00:12:13

It should also be noted, that is the level of punishment can also be to allow those who think they're getting away more time to

00:12:15--> 00:12:32

make their case, even more severe, more deserving of greater punishment. On one hand, it could be for them to get back. On the other hand, it could be for them to build up further cause for punishment.

00:12:34--> 00:12:39

If we look at the helm of people in relationship to the helm of a law,

00:12:40--> 00:12:44

we can see the fundamental difference

00:12:45--> 00:13:02

if we are caught doing something bad, but the one who caught us lets us go without any punishment or embarrassment. We would feel embarrassed anyway, along with an overwhelming sense of relief and gratitude.

00:13:03--> 00:13:13

Furthermore, we will quickly inform our captor, that we would never do it again and consider ourselves to be forever in their debt for their forbearance.

00:13:15--> 00:13:23

And if we were caught a second time by the same captor, what would we expect at that point, besides punishment,

00:13:24--> 00:13:54

in the case of a law witnessing our wrongdoings every single day, yet, in most instances, he graciously lets us get away with them. Even though it turned to him time and time again, begging His forgiveness and promising not to do it again. If he lets us escape the consequences each time that we still ended up disobeying him repeatedly, without consequences, because he is a law of healing.

00:13:55--> 00:14:03

Patience is far above any forbearance then, that human beings can ever show.

00:14:05--> 00:14:18

In order to illustrate the element of forbearance, the prophet SAW seldom use the child parent relationship,

00:14:19--> 00:14:23

to illustrated in a simile

00:14:25--> 00:14:27

in which he was reported,

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

to have said,

00:14:30--> 00:14:38

Allah created 100 types of mercy, out of which he has sent into this world only one

00:14:39--> 00:14:57

for the jinn, humankind, animals and insects. As a result of it, they show tenderness to one another and have a great compassion for one another. And through it, even wild carnivorous animals gently take care of their young

00:15:00--> 00:15:15

fathers and mothers don't normally hold any rancor or hatred towards the children, no matter what they do. In fact, they're often ready and willing to sacrifice everything, including themselves for the happiness of their children.

00:15:16--> 00:15:28

In this context, Omar mo hapa narrated the following incident. He said, some prisoners were brought to the Messenger of Allah, prisoners after a battle.

00:15:30--> 00:15:41

And there was a woman among them who was frantically searching for her child. When she finally found her child, she hugged them dearly, and immediately gave him her best

00:15:42--> 00:16:08

promises. He said to us, do you think that this woman would throw his child throw her child in the fire? We said no, by Allah, not if she's able to avoid doing so. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, Allah is more merciful to his slaves than this woman is to her child

00:16:10--> 00:16:22

to illustrate the basis of the forbearance that Allah has towards screeches, because it's manifest in mercy.

00:16:23--> 00:16:41

Whenever the prophet SAW Selim had opportunities he would illustrate allows forbearance to his companions in order to increase their love of Allah, because that's what's most important in reflecting on the the forbearance of a loss medalla.

00:16:43--> 00:16:45

Anyway, let's move on now to the

00:16:47--> 00:16:48

application.

00:16:50--> 00:17:19

The application according to even Bach, Paul's four principles, the first of which is to adopt where applicable, this Divine Name of haleem first and foremost is applied in our lives by increasing our love of Allah. As a result of understanding the unconditional love, he holds for us, through his tenderness and forbearance manifest in our daily lives.

00:17:20--> 00:17:48

Thus, we apply this Divine Name by developing a greater love for Allah by seeking to achieve the standard set for the believers regarding loving a law found in the province is an understatement. A man would not have attained faith, a man or woman, until and unless he or she loves Allah, and His Messenger more than anything else.

00:17:49--> 00:18:05

The prophet SAW Selim taught his companions the draa of Prophet down saying, Can I mean do I the old, your whole Allahumma inni as a Luca hogback bahagia man you hit book.

00:18:06--> 00:18:11

Well, I'm Allah, Allah, the Yuba levani hubback

00:18:12--> 00:18:23

Allah allow me to love you and to love those who love you. And to love whatever brings me closer to your love.

00:18:26--> 00:18:35

I love my job hubback I have been in a min FC, we're actually woman Alma invited

00:18:36--> 00:18:37

Allah

00:18:40--> 00:18:45

make your love more precious to me, then.

00:18:48--> 00:18:57

Oh, sorry. Oh Allah, make us love. Whoever brings us closer to your love.

00:18:58--> 00:19:04

And make your love more precious to me than cold water to the thirsty.

00:19:08--> 00:19:15

In terms of the definition of muhabba or love, love of Allah.

00:19:16--> 00:19:27

The famous theologian even taymiyah of the 14th century wrote, there cannot be a clear recognition of muhabba

00:19:28--> 00:19:55

then this, and this recognition in itself increases love for law. People have discussed at length about muhabba its causes its science, its fruits, its supports and its rulings. However, the most comprehensive of what has been said about this is what Abu bakkar and cattani

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

related from alginate

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

A 10th century pious individual noted for his piety

00:20:10--> 00:20:20

abubaker al Qahtani said, a discussion about muhabba took place in Makkah, during the pilgrimage season.

00:20:21--> 00:20:50

The senior chefs who were present spoke about this topic. And then they asked alginate, who was the youngest amongst them? They said to him, What do you say, Oh irati They call him because he was from Iraq. So as Jeanette lowered his head, and with tears streaming down his cheeks, he said, a servant of Allah should first overcome the evil tendencies of his soul,

00:20:51--> 00:20:58

and be continuously in remembrance of his Lord, by establishing the rights of his Lord,

00:20:59--> 00:21:07

he should focus on a law with his heart, to such a degree, that the light of fear would set his heart ablaze.

00:21:08--> 00:21:39

And while drinking from the vessel of pure love of Allah, certain hidden realities will be unveiled to him. So that when he walks also that when he talks, it is due to Allah, and it is from Allah. And when he moves, it is by the command of Allah. And when he is still in Syrian is also from Allah, He belongs to Allah, and he is living for a law, and the law is with him.

00:21:41--> 00:21:52

Upon hearing that, the sheriff's all started crying, and one of them said, there is nothing left to add to that, may Allah reward you, oh crown of the knowledgeable.

00:21:55--> 00:21:57

Being forbearing to others, this is the

00:21:59--> 00:22:05

other aspect that we have to focus on in terms of applying the name

00:22:07--> 00:22:10

where it's applicable, since in the

00:22:11--> 00:22:14

divine scale,

00:22:15--> 00:22:24

we cannot attain that type of forbearance which our last one to Allah shows us.

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

But at least on our own level,

00:22:28--> 00:23:25

it is possible for us to be forbearing as much as we can to those around us. forbearance is a moral characteristic of the highest grade, which is accessible to each and every human being based on the fact that Allah has imprinted on our souls, and our hearts demonstrated with those who are close to us. The emotional and psychological challenge is to exhibit forbearance to others who are not so close to us. While some people seem to be born with forbearance, most of us don't seem to be, however, it is worth striving for as it is beloved to Allah, the Most forbearing the prophets are seldom, on one occasion, I look elevated the status of forbearance to a lofty position when he

00:23:25--> 00:23:34

admiringly told a change up the pace. In Africa, lock is locked in

00:23:36--> 00:23:40

your hip boom, Allah, and Hill Mo. Well, Anna.

00:23:41--> 00:24:07

Indeed, you have two special qualities which are law, love, forbearance, and deliberateness. Although most of us only seem to be born with forbearance for those who are close to us, learning how to be forbearance to those not close to us, is very much possible, it is a possibility.

00:24:08--> 00:24:18

In fact, the reward of exhibiting forbearance to those unrelated to us is even greater than for those rare cases,

00:24:19--> 00:24:22

who are seemingly born with forbearance for everyone.

00:24:24--> 00:24:46

The greater the struggle, the greater the reward. Consequently, the promise was done. And all of the profits faced greater trials than the rest of humankind. And the promise was the limit said, the best charity is that given with great difficulty, by one who is destitute,

00:24:48--> 00:24:59

and he also said the best charity is that given to a resentful relative to give charity to someone holding rancor towards you, as required.

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

is a great effort of faith.

00:25:03--> 00:25:06

However, forbearance because Allah,

00:25:08--> 00:25:10

himself being forbearing

00:25:11--> 00:25:33

to the nth degree, who has put it in our hearts, it's a part of our DNA. But it tends to be focused on those close to us. And the real reward comes from forbearance to those who are not close to us. So Allah would not have

00:25:34--> 00:25:40

made forbearance so valuable, and giving, it's such a great reward.

00:25:41--> 00:25:59

And only gave it to few who are born with forbearance for everyone. And the rest of us the vast majority, I denied, no allies just allies fair. So he made it possible for us to learn it

00:26:01--> 00:26:07

and attain that reward, maybe even more reward than those who were born with it.

00:26:11--> 00:26:16

The profits on asylum, he gave us the methodology of how to do so.

00:26:18--> 00:26:27

It is the practice makes perfect model, which he left behind for us based on his patients acquisition strategy.

00:26:28--> 00:26:59

He was quoted as saying, we may get the sub button is a beautiful law. Well, my our PA, oh my, our top sorry, well, my word Tia I hadn't, I thought I'm higher on the outside, I mean a sub whoever pretends to be patient, Allah will grant him or her patience. No one has been given a gift better and more comprehensible than patients.

00:27:00--> 00:27:09

So no matter what our temperament maybe everyone can practice developing forbearance. Using this method,

00:27:10--> 00:27:14

we all can pretend to be forbearing on the outside.

00:27:16--> 00:27:19

Even if on the inside, we are

00:27:20--> 00:27:24

totally on forbearing we are exploding.

00:27:26--> 00:27:30

If we do it regularly, eventually, it will become a habit.

00:27:31--> 00:27:39

It involves a lot of effort, but it is a quality worth sacrificing our egos and nerves for.

00:27:40--> 00:28:00

For those of us who believe that we already possessed this quality. We should know that forbearance is not when we let problems slide once or twice, but then explode on the third time, because we have built up so much rancor and anger inside ourselves.

00:28:01--> 00:28:32

When we relationships get destroyed, because of momentary rage, real Helm or forbearance is when we're in a position to express our anger. But we still hold it back. If we don't have that, we have to work on it as recommended by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we need to tell ourselves that we are pretending forbearance for the sake of Allah, Allah haleem.

00:28:34--> 00:28:37

Even though we feel enraged and about to explode,

00:28:38--> 00:28:54

worship Vaughn will tell us odd that's hypocrisy. You don't need to do that. You should just show who you are, what you really feel. Let everybody know this is being open and honest.

00:28:55--> 00:29:02

Well, it's true in one sense. But if you're trying to learn forbearance, that's not the way to do so.

00:29:04--> 00:29:26

We should tell ourselves that I'm suspend suppressing my anger, because I really love a lot. And I sincerely want his love. tell ourselves that we are faking forbearance because we truly want to be close to our money. And because we really would like to obey His Messenger, and minute.

00:29:28--> 00:29:59

The second principle of living batal was to confirm were unique, and inapplicable. This Divine Name like all Divine Names are unattainable for a lot of creatures. So our belief in it requires us to single Allah out with the full attribute of forbearance and consequently, he is the only one who we should ultimately turn to for forgiveness for our sins. Of course,

00:30:00--> 00:30:38

Those people whom we have wronged, we should seek their forgiveness first and foremost. But following that, we should seek a loss forbearance and forgiveness, so as not to meet our sins and in our scales on the day of judgment in a state the bankruptcy as described by the promises, and when he spoke about who was truly bankrupt, the one who came before a law with good deeds, and those good deeds are eaten up to repay those people who they have wronged until

00:30:40--> 00:30:43

repayment, opportunities run out.

00:30:44--> 00:31:02

The individual has no more good deeds that and those who still are lining up to get their recompense, now start throwing evil deeds, from their scales, onto his scales, or her scales, and they're thrown in Hellfire because of it. So

00:31:06--> 00:31:08

we should strive

00:31:09--> 00:31:13

for this characteristic

00:31:15--> 00:31:23

by trying to purify ourselves of the desire for revenge and anger and

00:31:24--> 00:31:26

rancor cetera,

00:31:27--> 00:31:32

remembering that the reward for it is so great

00:31:34--> 00:31:34

that

00:31:36--> 00:31:40

the province is ultimate said, one who can clear his heart.

00:31:42--> 00:31:44

He said this, indirectly,

00:31:45--> 00:31:48

of rancor and anger, etc.

00:31:49--> 00:31:50

has earned a place in Jannah.

00:31:52--> 00:32:03

There's not actually a hadith in which he actually said that, but there was one occasion when when the province our Salah was in the masjid. And a companion came walking in,

00:32:05--> 00:32:21

or actually was sitting with all the other companions, he was teaching. And then he stopped his class and said to them, the next person who walks in the mosque will be from the people of paradise. And

00:32:23--> 00:32:40

they all turn to wait to see what would be an incomes, a hobby companion was named is not really known. Some scholars have suggested it was this one and that one, but it's not certain.

00:32:42--> 00:32:45

And it wasn't important what his name was, it's why we don't know his name.

00:32:47--> 00:32:48

But

00:32:50--> 00:32:53

nonetheless, the companions acknowledged

00:32:54--> 00:32:55

and carried on

00:32:56--> 00:33:00

he prayed is to Raka join the doors, the prophet SAW Solomon

00:33:03--> 00:33:19

turned, like the rest. Then the next day, same thing happened, processor lamp stopped, that's not said the next one who comes in will be from the paradise. And the one who came in next was the same individual from the day before.

00:33:22--> 00:33:43

And the third day, the same thing happened, he stopped the lesson, said the next one coming in. And they waited. And sure enough, it was the same companion and again, three days straight process Allah, you know, gave witness that he would be of the people of paradise.

00:33:44--> 00:33:45

And when one of the companions

00:33:47--> 00:33:55

sought to find out, it's a long story, so I'm not gonna go into all of it here now. But when one of the companions

00:33:57--> 00:34:01

of the loss, had sought to find out,

00:34:02--> 00:34:10

what was the reason? And he asked his companion, you know, what is it about him that

00:34:12--> 00:34:49

earned him that status and that companion was quite surprised the Oh, the prophet SAW someone said this about me spread surprise. Mashallah, so, but he couldn't figure out they couldn't figure out between them, but it was because he didn't get up specially if tagit every night he wasn't fasting every day and you know, so he seemed to be quite normal and natural, but he said that don't have the could think I was that before he goes to bed at night. He would make sure that they are no rancor, no hatred, no anger towards anyone.

00:34:51--> 00:34:56

It was clear his heart to go to sleep on a clear heart. He didn't have it.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

And this was what

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

That combining said this is what may do so different,

00:35:06--> 00:35:07

such a difficult

00:35:11--> 00:35:12

level to achieve.

00:35:15--> 00:35:15

So,

00:35:19--> 00:35:19

the

00:35:20--> 00:35:21

pitiful

00:35:26--> 00:35:27

should be

00:35:29--> 00:35:31

or we should hold pity

00:35:32--> 00:35:36

for those who are sinful is one of the ways of developing

00:35:38--> 00:35:40

this forbearance is that

00:35:41--> 00:35:48

rather than scorning those people who are sinful, we should feel pity for them.

00:35:50--> 00:35:52

As a principle to live by,

00:35:54--> 00:35:58

we should scrupulously avoid arrogance towards people engaged in sin,

00:36:00--> 00:36:36

as Who among us is without sin. That's the bottom line. The promises are seldom stressed the importance of avoiding this attitude, as it is common for the new believers, whether converts or BORN AGAIN believers to look down on many of the common people living in a habitual state of sin and disobedience. Instead, the Dawa imperative requires us to advise them gently, as a law's Divine Name and Latif taught us.

00:36:38--> 00:36:49

We should always remember, Prophet Moses and Pharaoh and compare ourselves and those we are looking down upon to them.

00:36:50--> 00:36:57

Instead, we should teach, showing the haleem example

00:36:58--> 00:37:19

the example of forbearance, we should think about ourselves and think to ourselves, this lowly sinful person, may one day achieve the station of him, forbearance with sincere repentance and become far better and dear to Allah than we are.

00:37:22--> 00:37:44

The third principle of living batam is hope. Where there is a promise, the Divine Name, Al Halim contains the promise of a loss ratio of our sins, which should consequently create in us a real sense of gratitude and appreciation.

00:37:46--> 00:37:57

Especially since a law has already informed us that if we show gratitude, he will increase his forgiveness of ourselves by in Chicago to him as he done.

00:37:58--> 00:38:03

If you are grateful, I will increase you in favor.

00:38:07--> 00:38:15

So it is for our own benefit to be grateful for the hell the forbearance and tenderness of a law

00:38:18--> 00:38:31

to be upon us. However, giving funds shouldn't be done ritualistically even if accompanied by ritual, like doing to do the sugar,

00:38:32--> 00:38:45

but it should be done sincerely. If we are to benefit from it. We should remember that Allah does not need our gratitude in the least. It does not benefit from it in any way.

00:38:46--> 00:39:03

Allah haleem ordained gratitude for us as a means of purifying ourselves from our blinding addiction to the accumulation of worldly trappings, and grows in gratitude.

00:39:04--> 00:39:20

Gratitude is our most basic means of growing closer to Allah by becoming more and more conscious of his generosity, and his gentle hand is kind hand

00:39:21--> 00:39:25

his forbearing hand of help in our lives

00:39:27--> 00:39:28

in the same way

00:39:30--> 00:39:58

that we would be grateful to anyone in this life who overlooks our faults and mistakes. We need to recognize the extreme and intense forbearance of Al Halim towards us and return to him after feeling great remorse for our sins. without remorse, there is no repentance. As the promises I mean self informed us that remorse is the essence of repentance.

00:40:00--> 00:40:10

Let us again remember that the best way of being thankful to our haleem for his forbearance is to train ourselves to be forbearing to others.

00:40:12--> 00:40:19

The fourth principle of Amun baltal is fear, where there is a warning.

00:40:20--> 00:40:21

This Divine Name

00:40:22--> 00:40:52

not only contains a great promise, but it also contains a strong warning to those who think that they can take advantage of our laws forbearance, as there are those whom Allah has allowed to continue in corruption and disobedience year after year, decade after decade, but they were only given extra rope to hang themselves. Externally, they seem the same as those who Malloy excuse and forgive.

00:40:53--> 00:41:15

The last set in Surah, Al anon verse 44. So when they forgot what they had been reminded of, I opened for them, the gates of everything good, until while they were rejoicing in what they had been given, I sees them suddenly leaving them in confused, despair.

00:41:17--> 00:41:22

I have now home by the time by either home will be soon.

00:41:24--> 00:41:31

No one knows which group they are in until the last moment when it will be too late to escape.

00:41:32--> 00:41:54

So it would be very unwise to gamble with an eternity of hell, in exchange for a few decades of earthly pleasures, which are themselves not pure, but mixed with depression, rage, confusion, etc. We are live Allah help us to correct our affairs before it is too late.

00:41:58--> 00:42:00

We will close our session now.

00:42:01--> 00:42:04

calling on our law using these names

00:42:06--> 00:42:07

or law.

00:42:08--> 00:42:14

Yeah, haleem. We know that you are the most forbearing and merciful.

00:42:15--> 00:42:37

We know that you delay and cancel our punishments according to your wisdom. So help us to return to you with remorse after we sin, adorn us with gratitude, for our forbearance. And for your forbearance, and patience in our times of hardship

00:42:38--> 00:42:51

make us of those who are forbearing and kind to others, readers of arrogance and help us to mirror your Helm in times of anger I mean

00:42:53--> 00:42:54

miracle of equal

00:42:55--> 00:42:59

so I become rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

00:43:01--> 00:43:02

With that,

00:43:03--> 00:43:11

we will now return to the third portion of our class which is the q&a

00:43:13--> 00:43:15

madaraka my q&a

00:43:22--> 00:43:25

question number one Bismillah.

00:43:26--> 00:43:32

from lower, what is the name of the book The chef is using for this series.

00:43:33--> 00:43:38

The name of the book is in the names of a law

00:43:40--> 00:43:43

written by the [???] themselves

00:43:45--> 00:43:48

are being written by the chef himself.

00:43:50--> 00:43:52

Hopefully at the end of the series,

00:43:54--> 00:43:58

it will be available to all who would like to benefit from it.

00:44:03--> 00:44:11

What does it mean that the profit sites allow us to choose the easiest one when he was given the choice.

00:44:12--> 00:44:19

That is when the processor was given a choice between two things one more difficult than the other.

00:44:20--> 00:44:25

Both of which are hollow to use to choose the easier one.

00:44:27--> 00:44:31

What is meant by that is that as he said the religion is easy.

00:44:32--> 00:44:49

halaal is there for us. If you want to choose halaal which is difficult climbing mountains or you want to choose halaal which is easy lying in the valley, swimming in the legs.

00:44:51--> 00:44:54

You are free to do either one.

00:44:55--> 00:44:58

But he used to choose the easier one

00:44:59--> 00:44:59

and this one

00:45:00--> 00:45:05

removes the idea which is promoted by some

00:45:07--> 00:45:08

that

00:45:09--> 00:45:11

you should choose the more difficult way

00:45:14--> 00:45:17

because there's more reward in difficulty.

00:45:18--> 00:45:27

Yeah, there is more reward where there is more difficulty to do a thing, when that is the only way.

00:45:29--> 00:45:32

But where you have multiple choices,

00:45:34--> 00:45:37

this is not the case, when the prophet SAW Selim

00:45:38--> 00:45:51

was going to Hajj and he found a man walking when everybody else was riding and they asked him why, you know, that he said this was his

00:45:52--> 00:45:58

he had the means he could have been riding a camel, but he chose this way

00:45:59--> 00:46:07

thinking that there is more reward in it from a loss $1 but the buzzer sound said better you get on the horn right?

00:46:09--> 00:46:11

advise them to ride

00:46:12--> 00:46:19

so the idea here is that we try to be

00:46:20--> 00:46:26

moderate and how we implement Islam we don't

00:46:27--> 00:46:28

get

00:46:29--> 00:46:38

so focused on you know, trying to do the right thing that it takes us into the most difficult thing.

00:46:40--> 00:46:58

So just remember, as Sam said that the new use of religion is easy. Yes, sudo Allah to us make things easy for the people don't make it difficult for them. When they have other options, give them those options.

00:46:59--> 00:47:01

from Instagram, we have

00:47:02--> 00:47:09

some questions from our students. I get scholarship for my studies Am I supposed to give set that

00:47:10--> 00:47:17

somebody gets scholarship gets a scholarship for his or her studies? Are they supposed to give zakah

00:47:20--> 00:47:46

they can't afford studies and they're being given money for their studies. And giving is a cat from it would not make the study's access inaccessible then it is possible to give something from it if a year has passed on it but you know if you got the the

00:47:47--> 00:48:15

scholarship for example, and it's given you year by year, you know, by the time the year runs out, it's used up so there is nothing to give no why if you're getting a scholarship for example, you have means you have property or things that oh no but you applied for a scholarship when you got it anyway. Because those scholarships were not for specifically for poor and destitute people.

00:48:17--> 00:48:24

Then you have to give us a cap on the wealth that you have back home or in your home.

00:48:27--> 00:48:28

We have another question

00:48:36--> 00:48:36

no

00:48:38--> 00:48:43

question from our YouTube students.

00:48:45--> 00:48:48

Why does the law sometimes not answer our due

00:48:49--> 00:48:53

process lm explain if we

00:48:54--> 00:49:17

make the dua sincerely give a give conditions. He said other allow us to move the known ability to call our law being certain that he will answer your prayers. Because if you're praying to Him, uncertain man, I don't know if I was gonna answer this prayer or not. Maybe but I'm just gonna say it anyway. No, this is not the way to make

00:49:19--> 00:49:26

a living said call on a law being certain that he will answer your prayers.

00:49:29--> 00:49:41

But he said at the same time, but be aware that Allah will not answer the Dumas of a negligent heart

00:49:43--> 00:49:45

playful heart

00:49:46--> 00:49:47

meaning that in your

00:49:48--> 00:49:59

checking the watch as you're saying the door Ah, you know you're making other plans, etc. But you're saying the do at the same time. You know you're multitasking but this is not acceptable.

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

This is not acceptable.

00:50:03--> 00:50:05

Do is not going to get answered this way.

00:50:06--> 00:50:21

You should have full effort in it, sincerity, surety, and it will be answered. But the problem is that a law may not answer that the way that you want it to be answered,

00:50:22--> 00:50:28

you're making the eye and saying give me this, and Allah gives you something else. But that's not what I made the offer.

00:50:29--> 00:51:02

But Allah gave you what was better for you. That's the point you have to believe that He will answer, but he will answer it in the way which is most appropriate. from his perspective, and his perspective, his perspective encompasses everything, he knows all the insides outsides, you know, consequences of you know, chain of, of reaction from etc, he knows all of that. So, he will give the answer which is most appropriate.

00:51:06--> 00:51:13

From our instagrammer students, if Allah has written your spouse, then does one just wait till

00:51:14--> 00:51:19

till the right person comes along or look for a spouse that would be suitable.

00:51:21--> 00:51:29

And this is the same concept of what Allah has written, and what effort we should make.

00:51:30--> 00:51:33

And the components actually ask the prompts, I tell them about that.

00:51:36--> 00:51:40

What we need to do is to make the effort.

00:51:42--> 00:51:46

And whatever comes is what are lies within.

00:51:49--> 00:51:51

That that's the way to do it.

00:51:52--> 00:52:02

We don't just sit at home and wait for somebody to come to our door with a spouse, saying we have somebody to marry.

00:52:03--> 00:52:05

Stamp for you to get married.

00:52:06--> 00:52:15

just doesn't happen like that. You have to make an effort. You have to look out you have to reach out cetera, et cetera. This is the reality.

00:52:19--> 00:52:22

Question from our YouTubers.

00:52:23--> 00:52:25

If Allah is the one

00:52:29--> 00:52:32

flies one, what does you have 99 or 100 names.

00:52:37--> 00:52:41

The names don't make him no longer one.

00:52:42--> 00:52:49

If the name is like God, the Father, God the Son, God, the Holy Spirit.

00:52:52--> 00:53:02

Now you have three Gods give him three different names, and the three gods and though you say they're all in one, is still three gods.

00:53:03--> 00:53:19

That's a different situation. When we say Allah is the most forbury, Allah is the Most Merciful. Allah accepts our repentance Allah, were describing what a lot that's

00:53:20--> 00:53:27

describing a law by the names for us to understand what he does.

00:53:29--> 00:53:31

And how he does it.

00:53:32--> 00:53:36

According to our limited level of understanding.

00:53:38--> 00:53:41

So the number of names and the number is not limited to 100.

00:53:43--> 00:53:46

But the number of names of Allah is unlimited.

00:53:48--> 00:53:49

Infinite,

00:53:50--> 00:53:51

only a lot.

00:53:54--> 00:53:57

So these names are guides to Allah.

00:53:59--> 00:54:01

When we know that Allah

00:54:03--> 00:54:04

is the all knowing,

00:54:06--> 00:54:08

reflect on that.

00:54:09--> 00:54:10

We

00:54:12--> 00:54:17

try to get our lives in order, knowing that he knows he knows whatever we do.

00:54:19--> 00:54:20

Okay, so there isn't,

00:54:22--> 00:54:26

you know, it's a reaction from the meaning in our lives.

00:54:28--> 00:54:36

So that's the intent of the names for us to know who are lies. And by knowing who lies we also know who a lot isn't.

00:54:38--> 00:54:43

So we need to know who Allah is and who Allah isn't.

00:54:45--> 00:54:51

So that we don't confuse him with the creation and ended up in worship of the creation

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

nor question the name of Eman batam, whose book you

00:55:00--> 00:55:03

Using no I'm not using every bottles book

00:55:05--> 00:55:06

bill but Paul

00:55:08--> 00:55:15

was among the scholars is a 12th century and Lucien Spanish Muslim scholar

00:55:17--> 00:55:18

who

00:55:20--> 00:55:21

proposed

00:55:22--> 00:55:35

ways by which we apply laws names, we call them a law with the law Hey, a smile snap, Father, Oh

00:55:37--> 00:55:42

Allah has the most beautiful name. So call on Him with them

00:55:43--> 00:55:46

how do we call on a law with them

00:55:47--> 00:55:48

through applying them

00:55:50--> 00:55:51

in our lives

00:55:52--> 00:56:07

and how do we apply them in our lives he gave three or four sorry principles as to how they are to be applied. He just gave the you could say the template

00:56:09--> 00:56:36

these four which I mentioned each time, but the explanation of each name and how it should be applied. This is material which I have prepared and I am delivering. So it's not the bin batanes book, it's my book and Sharla which is being created

00:56:37--> 00:56:44

according to the template which even batal gave

00:56:45--> 00:56:50

other scholars gave him not okay me had other points

00:56:51--> 00:56:54

and so on and so forth. Other scholars also had

00:56:55--> 00:57:01

templates I chose the templates have been backed off.

00:57:03--> 00:57:04

Oh

00:57:05--> 00:57:09

is a well known

00:57:10--> 00:57:15

commentator on Sahih al Bukhari

00:57:19--> 00:57:21

nor asks

00:57:27--> 00:57:38

when a baby yawns does shade on also enter and we have to cover its mouth they seem to yawn a lot.

00:57:42--> 00:57:43

The profits

00:57:45--> 00:57:53

encouraged us to control our yachts Yon comes upon us to try to control it

00:57:54--> 00:57:57

the last ditch is to cover it.

00:58:00--> 00:58:02

Otherwise, it's just about

00:58:05--> 00:58:08

you know, keeping your teeth together

00:58:09--> 00:58:11

stopping your mouth from

00:58:13--> 00:58:14

just

00:58:15--> 00:58:18

keep it together and ride it

00:58:19--> 00:58:22

as this you know helps to

00:58:25--> 00:58:30

slow down impact of tiredness which is coming upon you.

00:58:32--> 00:58:35

And he spoke of

00:58:36--> 00:58:43

the possibility of the evil jinn entering

00:58:44--> 00:58:44

can

00:58:46--> 00:58:49

through the mouth.

00:58:52--> 00:58:52

how

00:58:55--> 00:58:56

Allah knows best.

00:58:58--> 00:58:59

So

00:59:00--> 00:59:04

he gave us advice. It becomes our

00:59:06--> 00:59:09

culture our practice

00:59:10--> 00:59:13

not to just sit there talking to people and then just

00:59:17--> 00:59:21

start so I've got you now that to do so.

00:59:23--> 00:59:26

So what about babies? Baby wants Dion?

00:59:28--> 00:59:41

Well, we can cover them have more to do so. And this will help them as they grow up to be used to and remember to covering their own bouts.

00:59:45--> 00:59:56

Another question Should we avoid going to the masjid while prayer is done. Only with social distancing. know

00:59:57--> 00:59:59

if you're able to get in the masjid

01:00:00--> 01:00:01

Session should still go.

01:00:03--> 01:00:07

That's to be done the social distancing has to be

01:00:08--> 01:00:09

no harm.

01:00:10--> 01:00:11

You can do it

01:00:23--> 01:00:26

mysteria. backer, or Baker?

01:00:28--> 01:00:36

Do we need to make an ablution and put on a job to do sudo a sugar? No,

01:00:37--> 01:00:38

we don't.

01:00:41--> 01:00:49

As I've mentioned on numerous occasions, so do the sugar can be made with the minimum.

01:00:50--> 01:00:54

You don't have to face Scribbler, though, if you want to turn and face the parabola you can't.

01:00:57--> 01:00:59

You don't have to have Whew.

01:01:00--> 01:01:08

Okay, that's if you broke with Oh, by the things that break. What about if you have to make also?

01:01:09--> 01:01:10

Can you make

01:01:12--> 01:01:14

suju the sugar in the state of Geneva?

01:01:16--> 01:01:16

Yes.

01:01:18--> 01:01:23

There's nothing which prevents you from doing so. So do the sugar is not solid.

01:01:25--> 01:01:28

It's not solid. So don't mix up the two.

01:01:31--> 01:01:35

You can do it as a woman without

01:01:36--> 01:01:37

a job.

01:01:39--> 01:01:42

Even though in your country, maybe

01:01:43--> 01:01:52

even when you come in front of your father, put on a job as respect. Okay, that's your culture. Does Islam require you to do that? No.

01:01:55--> 01:02:03

Because then people will argue, hey, if you can be respectful before your father, should you be respectful before Allah? No, this is not

01:02:04--> 01:02:08

a place for that discussion. That's not relevant.

01:02:09--> 01:02:19

You don't have to cover your head before your father but culture requires you to do so you do so. But in making so do the shopper you don't have to come.

01:02:21--> 01:02:32

And even if you're wearing a dress, maybe your arms are out. Stretch the it's not all the way down covering the tops of your feet or whatever. You can pray

01:02:33--> 01:03:13

to do that. Of course, I mean, there are limits. You know, it is a point where you stop and say Oh no. Okay, if you're wearing spandex should you go and make them okay, so we say that's not appropriate Really? No, you know you've gone over the red line right? Similarly a man is wearing a bikini underwear is just going to go make sure do the shipper know about some Bad's about man, you know probably shirt forever. You know, we find but you know if he's on the beach swimming he's got to make friends with should be down covering his knees. You know his upper body is open something happens you know, sharp comes

01:03:14--> 01:03:25

driven off and he just you know gets out of it without getting bitten getting bitten or whatever. So he reaches the shore in which the sand drops down. It's doing perfectly okay.

01:03:27--> 01:03:27

Probably.

01:03:29--> 01:03:31

That's definitely the time to make sudo.

01:03:38--> 01:04:04

From test me test name Muhammad. Can you please explain? When do we give Zakat on property or land? What is the percentage of the different revenues from land or property without revenue was a big topic. This is a cat topic. Best thing is you sit with your local chef and

01:04:06--> 01:04:08

the details will be broken down for you.

01:04:09--> 01:04:15

Similarly, you can google google will find a reliable, no

01:04:17--> 01:04:19

reliable response from

01:04:20--> 01:04:24

sila hammer Majid and Islam q&a for example.

01:04:25--> 01:04:27

And they will break it all down.

01:04:37--> 01:04:39

Mr. Graham, do you have anything?

01:04:46--> 01:04:48

What is the correct job?

01:04:52--> 01:04:53

The correct

01:04:54--> 01:04:56

pay job in jail Bob

01:04:58--> 01:04:59

went outside of the home

01:05:01--> 01:05:04

As one which covers everything

01:05:06--> 01:05:13

except for face and hands. When a person wants to wear gloves also they can. It's not a requirement.

01:05:14--> 01:05:23

They want to wear a niqab also, again, it's commendable, but it's not a requirement according to a majority of scholars

01:05:25--> 01:05:32

and the garments should be loose, covering the whole body

01:05:34--> 01:05:37

and including the tops of the feet.

01:05:39--> 01:05:41

That is the complete job.

01:05:42--> 01:05:43

For women.

01:05:44--> 01:05:45

The job for men

01:05:47--> 01:05:50

is between the navel and the knee.

01:05:51--> 01:05:53

This area should be covered

01:05:56--> 01:06:06

with a loose garment so loose that when he sits in prayer, when he

01:06:07--> 01:06:13

bows in prayer when he makes the dude in prayer is our is not exposed.

01:06:14--> 01:06:24

That is the proper job for men. So men wearing spandex pants, tight tight pants, which fit every

01:06:25--> 01:06:30

curve, nook and cranny of his body. It's not appropriate

01:06:31--> 01:06:36

number of goods, great scholars have said Salah is not accepted.

01:06:37--> 01:06:42

Because we all know that one of the conditions for the acceptability of Salah

01:06:43--> 01:06:52

is that the hour is covered. So if you are exposing your outline instead of covering it, then what's the start status of your prayer?

01:06:59--> 01:07:03

An important question from Mohammed AB

01:07:05--> 01:07:09

Allah refers to himself in the Quran as we

01:07:12--> 01:07:15

can you explain what Allah meant by week?

01:07:16--> 01:07:17

He meant

01:07:18--> 01:07:18

I

01:07:22--> 01:07:23

we

01:07:24--> 01:07:27

when relating to a lot is I

01:07:28--> 01:07:30

it's called the Royal week

01:07:32--> 01:07:36

when Queen Elizabeth in the UK is known in English already,

01:07:38--> 01:07:40

when she wants to inform the public

01:07:42--> 01:07:42

that

01:07:44--> 01:07:53

she will be traveling to Geneva for a conference of heads of state

01:07:54--> 01:07:55

she is joining them

01:07:57--> 01:07:59

she will say

01:08:00--> 01:08:07

meaning I will be going to Geneva she will say we will be going to Geneva but it's just her

01:08:10--> 01:08:12

This is called the Royal we

01:08:15--> 01:08:23

it's used the net all the English there has to be used today by marks in England

01:08:25--> 01:08:30

and in and in Arabic we have the plural indicative of

01:08:31--> 01:08:32

honor.

01:08:34--> 01:08:38

When you give Salaam you say Salaam Alaikum

01:08:40--> 01:08:49

though you're talking to one person you're saying Peace be on all of you. Some people say oh it's to your angels because you have an engine on the right and Angel left.

01:08:50--> 01:08:55

So when you're saying this salaams to all of you you're including them? No no.

01:09:00--> 01:09:11

The bottom line is that referring to you in plural gives more respect, status, importance etc.

01:09:13--> 01:09:15

Then if I say Salaam olika

01:09:16--> 01:09:17

PSB on you.

01:09:22--> 01:09:22

But it's

01:09:24--> 01:09:28

perfectly legitimate to say Santa Monica Slavonic.

01:09:30--> 01:09:33

Well, most people are saying so.

01:09:34--> 01:09:35

He says Rama like

01:09:36--> 01:09:37

what

01:09:38--> 01:09:39

are you doing that?

01:09:42--> 01:09:53

Because they don't know. They you're so used to sell our Lake homes like if you don't say a sama let me say anything but Salaam Alaikum. You know you've committed a crime

01:09:55--> 01:09:56

but that's not the case.

01:10:02--> 01:10:04

Press a lolly asks,

01:10:06--> 01:10:08

Can we say yeah, Mohammed?

01:10:10--> 01:10:12

As it's mentioned in Tasha

01:10:13--> 01:10:18

yeah and maybe some scholars give this evidence to me.

01:10:25--> 01:10:27

form which is given in the prayer

01:10:29--> 01:10:30

is specific for prayer.

01:10:33--> 01:10:35

And some of the Sahaba

01:10:40--> 01:10:41

did

01:10:43--> 01:10:47

change the Tisha hood to say Salaam Allenby

01:10:48--> 01:10:51

from Isola Malika you and Abby

01:10:54--> 01:10:58

saying that when the process was alive, we used to say salam

01:10:59--> 01:11:05

alayka lobby, and after we died, we used to say a Salaam Allah Nabi.

01:11:07--> 01:11:10

So, of course, scholars differed on that

01:11:12--> 01:11:13

statement of some of the Sahaba

01:11:15--> 01:11:20

and the majority still continue to do it the way that the props are originally taught.

01:11:23--> 01:11:33

We cannot make prs on that, we cannot build on that and take it into other areas. So that we can call out Yamaha MC.

01:11:34--> 01:11:35

What do you mean by Yeah?

01:11:38--> 01:11:39

What do you mean by

01:11:42--> 01:11:45

Do you mean Yamaha med? in a general sense?

01:11:46--> 01:11:51

Oh Mohamed, may Allah have mercy on you?

01:11:52--> 01:11:56

Is that what you mean? Or do you mean yeah Muhammad,

01:11:57--> 01:11:58

can you do this for me?

01:11:59--> 01:12:01

two different things.

01:12:04--> 01:12:11

One is an expression of, of what they call tassies. Or

01:12:12--> 01:12:17

specification, specify all Muhammad is specified

01:12:19--> 01:12:22

in your dua to Allah, O Muhammad.

01:12:23--> 01:12:24

May Allah

01:12:27--> 01:12:28

have mercy on you?

01:12:29--> 01:12:30

Love you.

01:12:32--> 01:12:34

May Allah make us love you.

01:12:35--> 01:12:36

The way you love the love

01:12:38--> 01:12:43

or something of that nature. They've been not the way you love the Lord because he loved

01:12:45--> 01:12:52

we don't want to love him more that we love about. He should be loving a lot more than Prophet Muhammad says that's

01:12:53--> 01:12:53

the proper way.

01:12:56--> 01:12:57

Faisal Ali.

01:13:01--> 01:13:03

We do have to cough in the house.

01:13:07--> 01:13:11

It's not correct. There's no air decaf in house yet the calf is in the masjid.

01:13:44--> 01:14:02

Your question actually is a bit confused. Anyway, the bottom line is dunia to calf in the home is not from amongst us and I'm divided it have no record Sahaba doing it and there's no real basis for doing it in the hope.

01:14:03--> 01:14:07

So, it will be considered incorrect.

01:14:13--> 01:14:18

Anymore questions from Instagram or Instagram students?

01:14:20--> 01:14:23

followers, well wishers?

01:14:24--> 01:14:25

Friends.

01:14:30--> 01:14:30

If not,

01:14:33--> 01:14:37

then sha Allah will be closing the session

01:14:39--> 01:14:47

Subhana Allah Ambika shadow Allah and Stanford oka.

01:14:52--> 01:14:55

Boy you got a cat. Fear man in

01:14:56--> 01:14:57
