our YouTube connection is operational.

00:08:14--> 00:08:15

So

00:08:17--> 00:08:18

this mini law

00:08:21--> 00:08:22

it's time to move.

00:08:30--> 00:08:34

Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:08:39--> 00:09:06

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim, Allah Allah He was happy. Man Stanley Bissonnette e li Ahmed in our praises due to a law and we allow Peace and blessings on the last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam man all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.

00:09:07--> 00:09:20

This is session 29 of our series in the names of Allah. And in this session we'll be looking at two names, names number 40 and 41.

00:09:22--> 00:09:29

Sugar and ash Shakir the most appreciative, the most thankful

00:09:31--> 00:09:59

terms of its location in the Quran, they derive the Divine Name or Shaku or is mentioned four times in the Quran only three of the four times this name is combined with the Divine Name for among them is in a rock band, a lot of foreign Shaco indeed our Lord is forgiving and most

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

appreciative

00:10:03--> 00:10:09

the name a shock here is mentioned twice in the Koran.

00:10:10--> 00:10:18

One of them is woman totowa hieron. For in a law her Shakira Ali

00:10:19--> 00:10:20

and whoever

00:10:21--> 00:10:23

does voluntary good,

00:10:24--> 00:10:29

then indeed allies appreciative, and all knowing

00:10:32--> 00:10:49

in terms of the meaning linguistically, both Divine Names are Shakira and Usha couture. come from the trilateral route, Sheen, calf bra, and I derived from the verbal noun shook shukran.

00:10:50--> 00:10:58

shakar is an intensive form of the present participle shocker on the pattern found.

00:11:00--> 00:11:11

According to Arabic grammarians, the verbal noun sugar is said to have three basic meanings, the first of which is to praise for a benefit

00:11:13--> 00:11:26

or to acknowledge beneficence. The second meaning is to be thankful and to offer acknowledgement. And the third meaning is to produce and to supply abundantly.

00:11:28--> 00:11:47

derivatives of this route appears some 75 times and six different basic forms in the ground. For example, Shakira, he thanked the verb, I shaqiri, and the noun, the thankful ones,

00:11:48--> 00:11:51

and my school raw appreciated

00:11:53--> 00:12:05

relative to a law. These Divine Names a shocker and a shocker mean that he is the one who gives abundantly in response to the two.

00:12:07--> 00:12:17

Shaku shakoora shows the appreciation for the smallest with deeds by granting us enormous rewards and unlimited appreciation.

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

The ultimate example is the reward of never ending happiness in a law's paradise. linguistically, sugar means to increase to appreciate and to recognize good choco or in Arabic is used as well to describe an animal that's fed with little but gives much back in return.

00:12:47--> 00:12:56

The wow in shockula shows us that our laws, shocker is exceedingly appreciative.

00:12:58--> 00:13:05

His appreciation and rewards are beyond what any of us could possibly expect.

00:13:11--> 00:13:13

We mentioned earlier that

00:13:15--> 00:13:24

the name Ashok Kumar is paired with a four in three out of the four places.

00:13:26--> 00:13:54

And that is to indicate that the law is the oft and all forgiving and the most appreciative even if we commit sins and turn to him for forgiveness, he will not only Forgive us, but he will add an additional reward for the good deed of repentance, which we did. a shocker says why my doctorate? Hazara.

00:13:57--> 00:14:18

mesivta Allahu Fie her persona in a lot of foreign shockula and whoever commits a good deed, we will increase for him good there in indeed a law is off, forgiving and appreciated.

00:14:21--> 00:14:32

We should note, however, that our laws name a shawcor does not mean that he is actually thankful to anyone.

00:14:34--> 00:14:35

Because

00:14:36--> 00:14:42

everything belongs to him. Everything comes from him.

00:14:43--> 00:14:46

Instead it means that he is most appreciative

00:14:47--> 00:14:55

of our efforts. And as a result, He grants us huge rewards from his grace

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

shawcor even appreciates and reward

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

are good intentions Magna Bosco to the process Allah saying, Indeed, Allah has recorded good deeds and evil deeds and explain them. So whoever intends to do a good deed and doesn't do it, Allah will record it for him or her as a complete good deed.

00:15:25--> 00:15:26

So to handle law

00:15:27--> 00:15:28

a lot.

00:15:30--> 00:15:33

Moving on to the application

00:15:34--> 00:15:36

of the Divine Name,

00:15:38--> 00:15:46

according to even bottles for application principles, number one is

00:15:47--> 00:16:38

where applicable, we adopt where the name can be applied directly to human beings, we adapt and of course, there are always going to be many notches below how it is applied to Allah. These two Divine Names are shocker and a shocker can be applied by emulation. imitation, as a law is appreciative of all the good that we do. Likewise, we should be appreciative on our level for all the good others do our error code to the browser Salama saying? liars, Kuru law, men liars cruelness whoever does thank people doesn't thank Allah.

00:16:39--> 00:16:52

These Divine Names are also directly applicable, as the sign of a believer is that his or her state is always between patients and gratitude,

00:16:55--> 00:16:57

gratitude and patience

00:16:58--> 00:17:05

in the field alika, the IR Team Liquid lists of bahrein shockula.

00:17:07--> 00:17:16

This is a last statement indeed in that our science for every patient, everyone was patient, and grateful.

00:17:19--> 00:17:41

The believer applies these two Divine Names by extracting from a loss of perfect appreciation, free from any defects or imperfections, the most perfect form of gratitude he or she can attain in order to come closer to Allah by living it living in accordance with it.

00:17:43--> 00:18:28

The believer has to be extremely patient in times of calamity, by appreciating that there is good in the calamity, which perhaps he or she cannot see. And on the other hand, we shouldn't be extremely thankful to Allah for the favorable times. In times we wish won't occur. We should be very patient and appreciative of its purifying factors, which is why we say to hurun pure purification in sha Allah to those who are hurt, sick, hospitalized, etc, due to accidents, etc.

00:18:30--> 00:18:32

And that's based

00:18:33--> 00:18:58

on the principle the process element said every hardship which afflicts a Muslim, whether illness, anxiety, sorrow, harm, distress, or even the pricking of a thorn. Allah will expiate his or her sins for it. So behind Allah,

00:19:00--> 00:19:07

as four times we wish would never end we should be very careful, extremely careful

00:19:08--> 00:19:28

to be grateful and thankful to all those around us who contributed to our good times. True Faith, in fact, is half patience, and have gratitude. These two are inseparable. They are like the two wings of faith.

00:19:30--> 00:20:00

This is the essence of the wind wind situation considered the business ideal, which wise business men and women constantly seek as the ultimate formula for success. Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam 1004 years ago enunciated this principle. The Win Win principle in a well known authentic huddle

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

Narrated by Sue haven syneron in which he quoted the province as Allah saying, Our Jubilee movement

00:20:10--> 00:20:13

in Morocco Kula who loves

00:20:14--> 00:20:57

their fear of the believer is truly amazing. His or her whole affair is good. And that is only in the case of the true believers, whenever good times come to them, they are thankful and it is good for them. And whenever bad times before them, they are patient, and it is good for them. So the, the the most amazing thing about this great principle of faith is that it keeps us spiritually and emotionally balanced. In all of the life's ups and downs, which are constantly fluctuating between what we like and what we don't like.

00:20:59--> 00:22:01

It gives us the Holy Grail of peaceful stability, and comfort, which all humans ultimately seek and dream of. So when things don't go the way we want them to, instead of breaking down and falling into sadness, turmoil and depression, we bite the bullet and remain patient, knowing that it will pass as a law promise. For enamal nurse we use raw in mangoes to be as raw VSR. Indeed, along with every difficulty comes is along with every difficulty comes ease. And when things go the way we want them to, instead of going crazy with happiness, or our success and then squandering it, completely oblivious of where it ultimately came from. We should remain grateful and conduct our affairs

00:22:01--> 00:22:03

intelligently and meaningfully.

00:22:05--> 00:22:13

Another way of directly applying these two Divine Names a shocker and a Shakir

00:22:14--> 00:22:19

is through soo rude a sugar

00:22:21--> 00:22:33

by reviving the last sunnah of regularly doing sudo the sugar as the promises or lamb used to do. We are applying these names.

00:22:35--> 00:22:46

I've briefly mentioned about sudo the sugar on a number of occasions in my commentary on different names.

00:22:47--> 00:22:51

However, I'm going to go here into a little more depth.

00:22:53--> 00:23:01

It is a dead so now for 99% of Muslims.

00:23:02--> 00:23:06

It's not being practiced. And as such,

00:23:07--> 00:23:09

we are losing out

00:23:10--> 00:23:12

in an unimaginable way.

00:23:14--> 00:23:18

It is important for us to revive this sooner

00:23:19--> 00:23:25

is great rewards for reviving a sooner which has died out or which is dying out.

00:23:28--> 00:23:45

First and foremost. So do the Shuker may be defined as a prostration which is done for a law in order to show thanks and gratitude sugar to him for a blessing or blessings.

00:23:48--> 00:23:55

So do the sugar some people call it sajida to sugar so you are such that they have the same meaning?

00:23:57--> 00:24:21

When is it performed There is no doubt that every blessing we have in our lives is from Allah, as Allah Himself said, will not be coming near matin Femina law, whatever blessings you have our from Allah, however is to do this sucker is not performed for blessings in general.

00:24:23--> 00:24:31

Without specification just blessings we have had blessings in our lives from beginning to end makes you the shipper.

00:24:33--> 00:24:38

If we're gonna do that we'll end up making to do the sugar 24 seven.

00:24:40--> 00:24:41

Instead,

00:24:42--> 00:24:51

it should be done for specific blessings at a time

00:24:53--> 00:24:56

of the at the time of their occurrence.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

This is the day

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

Sick practice at the time of the occurrence

00:25:06--> 00:25:07

whether it is

00:25:09--> 00:25:15

being blessed with the birth of a child, getting a job or passing an exam,

00:25:17--> 00:25:22

or when someone remembers if we forgot to do it at the time of the occurrence

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

This is the time to do it.

00:25:26--> 00:25:33

It can also be performed when a specific harm has been removed, because that is in itself a blessing

00:25:35--> 00:25:39

such as being cured from an illness or saved from a calamity.

00:25:41--> 00:25:49

Now, this practice, as I said, which is 99%, forgotten,

00:25:50--> 00:25:53

unknown to so many Muslims

00:25:56--> 00:26:01

revival of it should be based on evidence.

00:26:03--> 00:26:07

Evidence from the practice of the province as a man

00:26:08--> 00:26:15

and his companions, that's where we should build the trust because otherwise anybody could come up and talk about anything.

00:26:18--> 00:26:20

As people even refer to

00:26:22--> 00:26:24

what they call sub salata sugar,

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

so lots of sugar

00:26:30--> 00:26:31

then there's no such thing

00:26:32--> 00:26:34

because there's no evidence for it.

00:26:36--> 00:26:45

Abubakar have the capacity to process and unstated, that whenever the province Arsalan was pleased by a matter.

00:26:46--> 00:26:59

He was pleased by a matter always given good news about a matter. It would immediately prostrate as a form of gratitude to Allah.

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

It would immediately prostrate as a form of gratitude to Allah.

00:27:08--> 00:27:37

This is going to be narrated. It is also authentically recorded, that the prophet SAW solemn also frustrated. When gibreel angel Jabri gave him the good news, that whoever sends salutations upon the prophets as we say, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once Allah would send salutations on that person, tenfold 10 times.

00:27:39--> 00:27:47

The browser seldom made prostration so do the sugar when gibreel informed him about that?

00:27:50--> 00:28:02

When the news that his repentance was accepted by a law, this is not talking about the process outside. I'm talking about carbody Malik.

00:28:03--> 00:28:13

When the news of his repentance was accepted by law, and the prophets iserlohn stopped his boycott for deliberately missing the Battle of taboo.

00:28:14--> 00:28:19

God immediately prostrated in gratitude to Allah.

00:28:23--> 00:28:24

companions above

00:28:25--> 00:28:33

and the time of the process. It likewise Abu Bakr Siddiq, the first of the righteous candidates

00:28:35--> 00:28:45

was authentically reported to have frustrated in gratitude when news reached him that the False Prophet musella and can that the liar

00:28:47--> 00:28:52

from their mama had been killed in the battle with him.

00:28:55--> 00:29:07

And the fourth righteous Gallic Ali Ibn Abi taalib, was reported to have frustrated when he heard the news that zilpha da

00:29:09--> 00:29:09

Oh, sorry,

00:29:10--> 00:29:17

the DIA, whose actual name was course, a binzhou hair and badly

00:29:19--> 00:29:27

when the problems are solved, I'm sorry when Andy told her that he was killed fighting along with the horror coverage.

00:29:28--> 00:29:33

He Ali Ibn Abi taalib made to do a shocker

00:29:34--> 00:29:46

because it was also you know, fulfillment of prophecy. The browser seller had made about this individual for the zoom for the

00:29:50--> 00:29:58

so these narrations confirm that to do the sugar was a common practice of both the promises alum and his companions

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

The next question is How should it be performed.

00:30:05--> 00:30:17

As soon as a person hears or remembers a specific blessing, it is highly recommended for him or to immediately make a single prostration to Allah.

00:30:19--> 00:30:31

So, either the message come to you, or it came to you yesterday, you forgot about it You didn't make so do you remember today make that's the dude that

00:30:32--> 00:30:42

the format of this prostration is like any other prostration in prayer, in terms of prostrating on the seven limbs that the bouncer Solomon spoke about?

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

that his

00:30:46--> 00:30:52

toes, the knees, that hands, the forehead.

00:30:54--> 00:30:54

Right.

00:30:57--> 00:31:09

And saying, when we're in such frustration, what do we normally say Suhana Rob bl Allah. glorified, is my lord the most Hi.

00:31:11--> 00:31:25

And remember, as we said before, talking about some Hana on bl, Avi. Similarly here, we don't want to turn to Hana Rog bl Allah into Spanner,

00:31:26--> 00:31:28

Spanner, Spanner.

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

As somebody who doesn't spell Splunk Splunk,

00:31:35--> 00:31:36

I wouldn't believe that

00:31:37--> 00:31:54

this is not appropriate. What is the point we're supposed to be thanking a lot and we're insulting a lot by our billing how the pronunciation of his name and his attribute of being

00:31:56--> 00:31:57

the most high.

00:31:59--> 00:32:00

So

00:32:01--> 00:32:02

one should

00:32:03--> 00:32:06

say that's the handler of the Allah.

00:32:07--> 00:32:17

One time three times whatever. And then one should thank Allah, in his our own words, for the blessings.

00:32:18--> 00:32:26

So it's not just the ritual of this Jude and saying, subang Allah, one has to

00:32:27--> 00:32:30

bring the blessing to mind.

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

thank Allah for it, promise, a law that you will use it in a way which is pleasing to Him,

00:32:41--> 00:32:44

which is service to his alma

00:32:45--> 00:32:51

to our Ahmad Islam, muslimeen cetera, and whatever else

00:32:52--> 00:32:59

we feel in our hearts to say, as words of thanks to Allah Subhana Allah.

00:33:01--> 00:33:20

We should note here that there's no evidence whatsoever for a person to say tack beer at the beginning. So you say Allahu Akbar, and then you go and make your sudo. And then when you're finished coming out as the dude you make tasleem. So the last hour I know

00:33:21--> 00:33:24

that you've turned it into some kind of a prayer like salad.

00:33:25--> 00:33:27

So do the shipper.

00:33:28--> 00:33:33

So a lot of sugar, you've turned it into, it's not Salah

00:33:34--> 00:33:36

it is merely to dude.

00:33:38--> 00:33:52

What state should a person be in the correct opinion is that it is not obligatory upon a person to be in a state of will do when performance or subdued a sugar

00:33:55--> 00:33:56

not

00:33:57--> 00:33:58

required.

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

So if you're not required to be in a state of Voodoo,

00:34:03--> 00:34:05

also, if you are

00:34:07--> 00:34:19

in the state of Geneva, well, you need to make a whistle. Also, it's not a requirement, you don't have to go and take your muzzle before making sudo Su.

00:34:23--> 00:34:36

So, as I said, it is not Salah, it is in fact, a form of liquor is a form of remembrance of Allah. We are remembering a law

00:34:37--> 00:34:47

in that sujood about which the prophets was and said we are closest to Allah when we're in sujood. So we want to thank him

00:34:49--> 00:34:58

to reach out and thank him in the best way possible when we are closest to him. So that is in sujood

00:35:01--> 00:35:02

Also,

00:35:03--> 00:35:07

because the reason for doing so, do the sugar

00:35:08--> 00:35:25

is due to momentary, the momentary occurrence of a blessing or removal of harm, there is no specific time for this in which a person can prepare for it or a person has to do it.

00:35:26--> 00:35:33

So, whether it is the rising or the setting of the sun, no problem in the middle of the sky, no problem.

00:35:35--> 00:35:44

You can do it then. This is not Salah salada, we're not allowed to do at those forbidden times.

00:35:47--> 00:35:59

In such a case, whenever a person is blessed, he should immediately perform to do the sugar in whatever state he or she is in.

00:36:01--> 00:36:08

Furthermore, it is not required that one prostrate in the direction of the Qibla of Mecca

00:36:09--> 00:36:26

nor the women have to wear hijab and abayas gloves and socks and all the things that the cards that people might wear, women might wear and similarly for men, you know, as long as they're covering basic our

00:36:28--> 00:36:29

that's sufficient.

00:36:34--> 00:36:44

In terms of innovations related to do the sugar one of them I mentioned earlier, was salata sugar.

00:36:46--> 00:36:47

There's no such thing.

00:36:49--> 00:36:53

It is not narrated that the Prophet saws are

00:36:54--> 00:36:59

dedicated to the specific prayer called salata sugar.

00:37:00--> 00:37:07

The only act of worship established is sudo the sugar as previously mentioned,

00:37:09--> 00:37:32

secondly, performing so do the sugar after each prayer, or after reciting Quran some people have made up this practice. As mentioned previously in the Hadith process, alemu only performs the noodle soccer on specific instances of good news or being saved from a calamity.

00:37:33--> 00:37:44

Therefore, to introduce a new practice of performing a separate sudo after each prayer is wrong, is incorrect.

00:37:45--> 00:38:05

And it is middah innovation once you start teaching it to others promoting it etc. Then you fall under a very dangerous heading where the progress awesome said every innovation in religion is misguidance

00:38:07--> 00:38:19

cool with the attain dolla dolla and all misguidance needs to the Hellfire akula de la Latin for now.

00:38:23--> 00:38:27

Some people have invented

00:38:28--> 00:38:33

saying 100 illa three times and sugar a lot three times

00:38:34--> 00:39:18

as what should be said. Now to specify a regular saying or draw in Islam requires evidence that it was done by the prophet SAW Selim and his companions so they told us to do it. It is not known that the above statement saying Alhamdulillah three times and sugar the last three times was specified to be said during salata sugar, we have no evidence for that at all. However, if somebody did it on their own your answer to the sugar and you're thanking Allah etc. And then you sell on the last three times. I use I should call the last three times, no harm.

00:39:19--> 00:39:36

Individually you can do it. But now the problem comes when you make it a practice for so do the sugar to teach people when you're making to do the sugar you should say this. Now you're going into the realm of data or innovation.

00:39:38--> 00:39:44

There are also some fabricated narrations quite extensive, you know, quite long.

00:39:45--> 00:39:58

One famous one found in books of the Shia, like Bihar, Anwar and mustard rock and wasa in

00:40:01--> 00:40:14

Which goes like this. When the slaves of Allah do such that to sugar, Allah opens the hijab, the veil between them and the angel

00:40:15--> 00:40:43

says to the angels look at my slave, he did his follow up, obeyed my my teachings, and then performed, so do to thank me for what I have blessed him with, because here with some of the bigger comes from comes out of this fabricated habit, and then it goes off. But just important for us to know that this is a fabricated narration, if you come across it, don't pass it on to anybody else.

00:40:44--> 00:40:51

In fact, just inform those who may be promoting it, that it is not authentic.

00:40:54--> 00:40:59

So moving on now to the second principle of even batam.

00:41:00--> 00:41:26

Concerning the application of the Divine Names, the second principle is to apply or where it's applicable, where the name is in is inapplicable to human beings, our circumstances, we confirm its uniqueness to Allah. So these two Divine Names are shackled on the score,

00:41:27--> 00:41:37

while being applicable on a limited human scale according to win battles, first principle, they are in applicable on the perfect

00:41:38--> 00:41:42

infinite divine scale, as

00:41:45--> 00:41:58

we do not give these attributes to our laws, creatures. Instead, we worship a law based on the meanings of these attributes embodied in the divine next,

00:41:59--> 00:42:04

because every name has an attribute associated

00:42:06--> 00:42:16

by law is described as being a shock or appreciated, you know, he is appreciative sorry, they ultimately appreciate

00:42:21--> 00:42:32

if then, that name of Allah, his actions, that he acts in an appreciative way. So that's what we deal with.

00:42:37--> 00:43:07

So since Allah is absolutely Ashoka Allah Shakir who accepts from us little and gives great rewards for our little we have been forbidden from concert considering even the smallest amount of good negligible regardless of how my new did maybe a bizarre quoted the process element saying that Iran nominal Maru fishy.

00:43:08--> 00:43:11

Do not scorn any good deed.

00:43:12--> 00:43:22

Even if it is only to meet your brother with a smiling face below and tell Paul Akaka be watching pulk.

00:43:27--> 00:43:30

The Messenger of Allah resided

00:43:33--> 00:43:40

the regular encouragement of his followers to donate whatever they could,

00:43:41--> 00:43:44

as an expression

00:43:46--> 00:44:03

of thanks to Allah, regardless of how small it was, he advised them to give it in charity. It even heartened me equal to the browser Selma saying it took a lot of sorry it took will not allow Bishop pitampura

00:44:04--> 00:44:06

shield yourself from the Hellfire

00:44:07--> 00:44:12

by giving even a half of a date in charity.

00:44:14--> 00:44:17

And, of course, the half of the date

00:44:19--> 00:44:28

occurred in practice. When a woman came to Ayesha during the time of hunger

00:44:29--> 00:44:34

and she begged her for some thing to eat. She had with her two children

00:44:35--> 00:44:40

and I should write them three dates. That's all she had, that she could give.

00:44:42--> 00:44:46

So the woman gave one date to one child taking out the See that's a tricky one.

00:44:47--> 00:44:59

Let's get started eating then she did the same for the second one. And the second child start eating then she he came to the date for herself removes the seat

00:45:00--> 00:45:19

And when she's about now to eat it, she notices that the first job is finished eating a date and is looking at her, you know, wanting the date that she has. And she looks at the second child and second child is doing the same. She's the both finished off the date in a second. So what is she gonna do now?

00:45:20--> 00:45:30

She split the dead she had in half, if half to one and a half to the other. So when I show went and told the promises, tell him about this amazing thing.

00:45:31--> 00:45:37

What this woman did for me easy was Arsalan said

00:45:38--> 00:45:44

she would be cool the people of Paradise that was her to get to Jenna

00:45:46--> 00:45:47

surangama.

00:45:48--> 00:45:51

So, we don't want to

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

consider any act

00:45:58--> 00:45:59

below us.

00:46:02--> 00:46:05

This is what the process and understood this latter

00:46:06--> 00:46:07

minalima rufiji

00:46:10--> 00:46:16

Don't look down on any good deed as being not worth your effort.

00:50:38--> 00:50:38

Just find out

00:50:40--> 00:50:43

maybe in five minutes and it's running again.

00:50:53--> 00:50:57

Right so are they Kumara to Mahi Obara katsu.

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

We'll carry on

00:51:06--> 00:51:08

from where we stopped.

00:51:10--> 00:51:11

sha Allah.

00:51:14--> 00:51:18

So we were discussing the fact that

00:51:19--> 00:51:26

a law promised to increase the value of whatever is given charitable charitably.

00:51:28--> 00:51:37

And were quoted, the prophet SAW Salaam as saying, will attack Iran nominal Maru fishy,

00:51:38--> 00:51:49

that we should not score in any good deed, even if it's only to meet our brothers or sisters with a smiling face.

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

So

00:51:52--> 00:51:57

this is from the great blessing of Allah, I Shakira Alicia core

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

lessons which are so great that

00:52:05--> 00:52:10

any kind act we do is increased automatically 10 fold.

00:52:11--> 00:52:19

While wrong beads are only counted as one and are erased by the good deeds that we do.

00:52:21--> 00:52:35

We said this was mentioned in Surah assura, verse 23, and whoever does a good deed, I will increase the good in it for him. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Appreciative.

00:52:37--> 00:53:21

So we should note that even with all of this divine appreciation, and multiplication of our good deeds, by themselves, they will not earn us paradise. This is a final point, considering all of our deficiencies, defects, forgetfulness, negligence, etc. They are not equal in value to an everlasting life of pleasure and happiness are to save us from the Hellfire is only a loss grace and mercy that will take us there, if he wishes. So it's only for us to be grateful, to be thankful, whenever we have the opportunity.

00:53:22--> 00:53:25

The third principle of evidence

00:53:26--> 00:53:43

is to find hope, where there is a promise in the names. Now these two Divine Names are themselves promises to fulfill, for the faithful, a reward from Allah, that all wood

00:53:44--> 00:54:27

that we do, many times over, will be multiplied, especially when we show gratitude to him for all that he has done by prescribing 17 units of formal prayer daily for the believers, in which the first words in every unit of prayer is Alhamdulillah. All thanks and gratitude are due to Allah. Allah has elevated gratitude to the highest possible level. And that's where education of our children should begin. We should ask them who made the treats?

00:54:28--> 00:54:30

have told them already they'll say Allah

00:54:32--> 00:54:33

and who gave us this house?

00:54:34--> 00:54:39

They should know how to say a lot and who gave us this nice car

00:54:40--> 00:54:59

a lot and so on and so forth. And then we turn them okay. Then we should thank Allah for all that Allah has given us. You know, just like when I give you chocolate, you say thank you Abuja or Abbey bar.

00:55:00--> 00:55:07

Thank you. Same way, when you do something for me you bring

00:55:09--> 00:55:09

a

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

juice in a glass you bring it and give it to me, I say thank you. In the same way, we should thank Allah and reinforce that with our children. So they grew up

00:55:26--> 00:55:39

with a thankful attitude. We call it the attitude of gratitude. Now, gratitude has three levels, according to Mr. manku, to be from Spain.

00:55:40--> 00:55:45

The first is recognizing and affirming the blessing by the one blessed.

00:55:47--> 00:55:49

Once guru Nia Mata Allah,

00:55:50--> 00:55:56

Allah, Allah told us to do that straight off. Remember, our laws favor on you.

00:56:00--> 00:56:47

So, gratitude begins with that you have to remember the February you have to recognize the favor. If you don't recognize it, how are you going to be thankful for it. The second is using it to help worship Allah, as he deserves to be worshipped and obeyed. This is what makes sense and what the Sharia demands. It is not logical OR acceptable, that we mistreat or respect or disrespect one who has done us a favor. People normally look down on those who behave in that way as being ill mannered. Their view of the person would be far worse, if the one receiving the favor used it to harm the giver.

00:56:49--> 00:57:14

All of the blessings and benefits of this life were fundamentally created to help the believers to worship Allah. Allah said, I'm sure a lot offers 30 to say, who was forbidden. The adornment, which are law created for its creatures are the good things of sustenance, say, all

00:57:16--> 00:57:24

these are for the enjoyment of the believers in this world, and will be exclusively.

00:57:26--> 00:57:41

It will be exclusive for the believers on the Day of Resurrection. In that way, I have clearly promised, I've expanded my revelations for people who have knowledge.

00:57:42--> 00:58:03

Gratitude should be given for every one of our limbs, by using them only in ways pleasing to Allah, for example, flanks of the heart, is that it strives to stay busy with the remembrance of Allah and helps it to remember a lot

00:58:06--> 00:58:10

of the tongue is that it speaks about Islam as much as possible.

00:58:12--> 00:58:12

Thanks,

00:58:14--> 00:58:26

eyes is that it reads the Quran and the Sunnah, and other beneficial places of knowledge and sees only halaal Entertainment

00:58:27--> 00:58:51

thanks of the IRS is that it listens only to what is permissible, as fast as much as possible. Signs of the hands that we give and take what is useful, enjoyable and pleasing to Allah. And thanks for other feet is that they only take us to places acceptable to Allah. The third

00:58:56--> 00:59:17

love thanking is the thinking of the one who allow us to convey the blessing. As I put it earlier, whoever doesn't thank a lot. Sorry, whoever doesn't thank people doesn't thank a lot. So giving fans to the people is a must

00:59:19--> 00:59:32

to say instead of thanking people I should really love thanks belongs only to Allah. And you don't give them thanks, this is wrong is guided.

00:59:34--> 00:59:50

Beyond that, there are many violent, voluntary acts of gratitude worship, which we should try to incorporate into our lives as the obligatory acts are never performed. Perfect perfectly.

00:59:51--> 00:59:59

So the voluntary acts of worship every act of worship which has been scribe has a body of voluntary acts that

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

support. So where there are deficiencies in our obligatory acts, voluntary acts, I used to patch it up.

01:00:13--> 01:00:18

The fourth and last principle of live in Bhutan is that a fearing

01:00:19--> 01:00:55

where there is a warning. Now these Divine Names of providers with a brief glimpse of a loss, all encompassing appreciation of whatever good we do, no matter how big or small, expect us to be likewise appreciative of the Lord's blessings on one hand, and on the other hand, Failure to do so will have dire consequences. And allies express the wonders of the consequences of ingratitude saying that in Chicago Joomla z danmaku.

01:00:56--> 01:01:04

villa in kufr, two in the other Bobby lashley if you give thanks, I will certainly grant you more.

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

But if you are ungrateful

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

Well, I incur far too,

01:01:15--> 01:01:26

in gratitude is is, is made equivalent to kufr disbelief. But if you're ungrateful of my favorites, my punishment will be terrible.

01:01:29--> 01:01:42

So, those suffering from depression usually claim that there is no good at all in their lives. Everything is bad, nothing is good. They can't see any good anywhere

01:01:46--> 01:01:47

because of that,

01:01:49--> 01:01:58

so Judah sugar is amongst the best practices to help depressed people. return to their senses.

01:01:59--> 01:02:03

Allah give us the wisdom and the trophy.

01:02:08--> 01:02:45

To practice knew the sugar on a rag is calling on a lie using these names. All Ah, yeah, shocker. Yeah, Shaq here. We thank you for your appreciation of whatever little we do. And you're immortal, enormous rewards without hesitation for the more that we do. Help us to be more grateful in our words and deeds to earn more of your favors in this life and the next. Yeah Shall

01:02:46--> 01:02:56

we are in great need of your favorites. Always. So assist us in using your favorites in ways pleasing to you. And avoid

01:02:58--> 01:03:17

avoiding your Raph for in gratitude and using your blessings in ways displeasing to you. Keep us from such a state or Allah yascha Korea Shaq mean

01:03:18--> 01:03:19

mean?

01:03:20--> 01:03:20

Me

01:03:22--> 01:03:23

said I bought a boon

01:03:24--> 01:03:25

to mA he

01:03:28--> 01:03:34

will now move back to the third section of our class.

01:03:36--> 01:03:37

The section

01:03:38--> 01:03:39

of

01:03:41--> 01:03:42

q&a

01:03:47--> 01:03:51

in this section, sha Allah,

01:03:52--> 01:03:53

we will begin

01:03:57--> 01:03:57

with

01:03:59--> 01:04:40

question from Grenada. From Hamza you mentioned that some brothers from Canada and yourselves yourself are planning to open an IOU in Grenada. Any more information? Thanks. Well, send me your contact details and I will send down the contacts who are practically in the process of setting this up. They sent me yesterday, pictures of a center which was being set up that's converted her house

01:04:41--> 01:04:49

which will have ample room as a learning center for those who would like to study in the international Open University.

01:04:57--> 01:04:59

Second question from Faisal Ali.

01:05:00--> 01:05:03

Why do we call Masjid al haram? haram?

01:05:05--> 01:05:10

What is the meaning of it? haram means forbidden.

01:05:12--> 01:05:17

It's called Masjid al haram because in that area known as the Haram

01:05:19--> 01:05:21

certain things are forbidden.

01:05:23--> 01:05:27

know, when you're in the state of a harami not allowed to do certain things.

01:05:29--> 01:05:41

So, that refers to the prohibitions of halaal things which are not allowed to be done during Hajj and Umrah

01:05:42--> 01:05:46

or to be done in Makkah itself.

01:05:53--> 01:06:27

Third question is from Madeira tajudeen. I have a question from a sister and her husband. She had some issue, and he gave her two catalogs. She was worried and is asking if he utters another, can she live with him anymore? Well, if the two were done, as separate the locks, he did it once. And then he did it another time on another occasion. Then if he does it one more time.

01:06:28--> 01:06:32

Then the divorce becomes final.

01:06:37--> 01:06:48

She would have to remind him again after that third time, she would have to have married somebody else. Their marriage didn't work out or whatever he died or whatever. And then she would be able to rebuy

01:06:50--> 01:06:55

and I'm not suggesting that she kill the person that she married so she got remarried her husband

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

Kazuma Zubair, I read the process that I'm used to have to footbaths one from and the other. He went to the women and preached.

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

I'm not really

01:07:19--> 01:07:22

aware of this reference. I know he used to go and give talks to them.

01:07:24--> 01:07:28

But I don't as far as I know this is not the football football Juma

01:07:30--> 01:07:31

and this is just talks

01:07:33--> 01:07:49

calling this football Juma will be we use the term football we automatically think Juma. But you're using the term football as a talk. So yes, he gave talks to men, and he gave talks to the females.

01:07:55--> 01:08:03

But I think our brother's beer consumer is mixed up the two. So is asking why is this sooner?

01:08:05--> 01:08:09

not practiced in our times.

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

It is

01:08:13--> 01:08:24

many masjids were lessons you know, every day every once a week or whatever. I set aside for women and lectures set aside for men

01:08:28--> 01:08:43

are saying Mahmoud I heard that once you start fasting show out and it becomes compulsory for you to fast every year. Is this true? No. Show All is voluntary, and it remains voluntary to the end of the world.

01:08:47--> 01:08:55

Tanweer alum vomited we are asked, Can I keep a non Muslim as my best friend?

01:08:57--> 01:08:58

preferably not.

01:09:00--> 01:09:02

Your best friend should be a must have

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

a friend who is a good friend, whatever could be an answer.

01:09:11--> 01:09:20

But your best friend, your confidant confident who you take advice from listen to all the time, this shouldn't be a Muslim.

01:09:22--> 01:09:32

Zainab asks, Is it not permissible to pray just to record if one is fearful or thankful

01:09:33--> 01:09:36

there is no such prayer.

01:09:37--> 01:09:38

You know but

01:09:41--> 01:09:43

if you are thankful there is a Jew there should or

01:09:45--> 01:09:59

if you're fearful There is also dude or not dude, sorry. So a lot of health and fearful circumstances where there's another format for prayer.

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

My Jamal,

01:10:04--> 01:10:13

Muslim girl wants to get married to a non Muslim all she should do it make the guy Muslim Yes.

01:10:15--> 01:10:18

convert him to his lap, real conversion

01:10:20--> 01:10:21

not just

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

arrangement done

01:10:28--> 01:10:30

this sometimes it's done

01:10:32--> 01:10:35

you know whether it's not just an arrangement or whatever

01:10:40--> 01:10:44

you can do so by just telling the guy

01:10:45--> 01:10:46

okay.

01:10:47--> 01:10:51

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

01:11:02--> 01:11:11

Mohamed Salafi, can you talk about our predicament and what will alleviate it our current predicaments around the globe

01:11:13--> 01:11:39

This is q&a This is not a place for another lecture. There are so many people on YouTube today Facebook etc. giving lectures about situation in Palestine etc. So, you know, I think plenty has been said this is specifically for the names of Allah and some

01:11:41--> 01:11:47

my questions that people may want to ask this is this question now. But in general,

01:11:49--> 01:12:00

I do say that everyone should strive to do something. It will vary from person to person, place to place,

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

circumstance to circumstance etc.

01:12:05--> 01:12:13

So within the factors that surround you, that allow or don't allow, you do what you can.

01:12:14--> 01:12:17

That's what's required of you.

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

In sha Allah

01:12:29--> 01:12:31

think that's our last question.

01:12:32--> 01:12:33

So

01:12:35--> 01:12:38

we will be shutting down the program.

01:12:43--> 01:12:50

pika shadow Allah and NuSTAR Luca on the tuber lake.

01:12:52--> 01:12:55

Salaam Alaikum wa rahmatullah.
