00:02:59--> 00:03:00

Nice thought

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

00:03:11--> 00:03:12

years ago

00:03:14--> 00:03:21

which I intend to see published. I will turn them into live sessions in the meantime.

00:06:12--> 00:06:13

which is

00:06:53--> 00:07:05

This is session 30 in which we'll be looking at three names a Lally, Allah, and Al Mahal.

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

The transcendent, the most high

00:07:13--> 00:07:19

names number 4243 and 44.

00:07:23--> 00:07:29

The Quranic location for the Divine Name, Ali

00:07:30--> 00:07:37

is mentioned eight times there are eight locations in the Quran word can be found among them.

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

For her coolin

00:07:43--> 00:07:45

falou Mullah Ali Al Kabir

00:07:48--> 00:07:52

so the judgment is with Allah the Most High the grand

00:07:54--> 00:07:55

and

00:07:57--> 00:07:58

for

00:08:01--> 00:08:06

Allah Allah, it's mentioned twice in the Quran.

00:08:07--> 00:08:19

The beginning of surah Allah first verse, some businessmen have begun Allah, glory be to the name of your Lord on high.

00:08:23--> 00:08:28

The Divine Name, Elmo doll is mentioned only once in the crime.

00:08:29--> 00:08:38

That is in Surah rod, verse nine. Ali Mallaby was Shahada, Al Kabir Ruth mootai.

00:08:42--> 00:08:57

In terms of its meaning, linguistically, these three Divine Names Allah Ali and Allah and Allah tala come from the tri literal route, fine lamb Wow.

00:08:59--> 00:09:18

And they are derived from the verbal noun or Lu or Lu one, which, according to Arab grammarians is said to have four basic meanings. The first meaning is to be high, lofty, and exalted. And to ascend,

00:09:19--> 00:09:29

the second meaning is to overcome and to overwhelm. The third is to advance and to exceed

00:09:30--> 00:09:33

and the fourth meaning is to be eminent

00:09:35--> 00:09:36

everywhere.

00:09:37--> 00:09:50

derivatives of this route 70 appear 70 times in the Quran in 14 different forms. Examples can be seen in

00:09:51--> 00:09:55

phyla that is Exalted is He

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

the halo come

00:10:02--> 00:10:14

It's time to overcome our new one haughtiness, and a lien, the upper top and uppermost.

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

relative to a lot of these three Divine Names and Ali and Allah and dal mean, that he alone possesses loftiness. In both in both his essence and in His attributes, which is far above any imperfections, he is above his throne, and exalted above the whole of creation

00:10:43--> 00:10:50

is beyond any thoughts, limits and ideals, ideas of his creation

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

is sublime.

00:10:56--> 00:11:03

And above all existence, due to his might and perfection.

00:11:08--> 00:11:18

human minds are unable to grasp his loftiness and its greatness, and our intellects are incapable of conceiving His perfection.

00:11:20--> 00:11:41

We should note that some Muslim thinkers, scholars and philosophers, influenced by Greek philosophy have denied these three Divine Names and their core attributes of transcendence called Aloo. Because they felt that it limits Allah to a location,

00:11:42--> 00:11:49

they created a descriptive rule to replace these Divine Names and their core attribute.

00:11:50--> 00:11:51

They claimed

00:11:52--> 00:12:00

that Allah is not absent from any place, while being in every place.

00:12:02--> 00:12:15

Like men who McCann will who have equaled him again, this is a rule which they set to take the place of these Divine Names.

00:12:17--> 00:12:24

In simpler terms, this rule meant Allah is everywhere and in everything

00:12:25--> 00:12:25

eminent

00:12:27--> 00:12:28

and omnipresent.

00:12:32--> 00:12:50

However, the core divine attributes of transcendence, when used to describe a law refers to the fundamental belief that a law is above and beyond this creation, is neither enclosed by the creation, nor is any part of the creation above him in any way,

00:12:51--> 00:13:37

is neither a part of the creative world, nor is the created world a part of him. In fact, his being is totally distinct and separate from his creation, is the creator of the universe, and its contents and, and their contents are all a part of his creation. However, his attributes function without restriction, throughout his creation, he sees, hears and knows all, and he is the prime cause of whatever happens in the universe. Nothing happens anywhere, anyhow, or at any time without his will.

00:13:39--> 00:13:51

There are in fact, two distinct, separate entities, the creator and the created, the infinite and the finite.

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

Now, the significance

00:13:55--> 00:14:24

of this point which is raised here, is that prior to the arrival of Islam in its final form, humankind and the jinn had strayed far away from the implications of this noble attribute. Christians claim that Almighty God Allah had become flesh and blood, and had come to the earth in the form of a man, Prophet Jesus, and was killed on a cross by his enemies.

00:14:25--> 00:14:40

The Jews before the time of Jesus had also claimed in their scriptures that are law came down to earth, in the form of a man and was pinned in a wrestling match with Prophet yaku prophet Jacob.

00:14:41--> 00:14:59

For many centuries, the Persians also regarded their kings as Gods endowed with all of our laws, attributes, and consequently worship them directly. The Hindus believed in Brahman, the Supreme Being

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

They believed that he was in every place and in everything. So they ended up worshipping countless gods, in the forms of human beings, even animals as personifications of Brahman.

00:15:15--> 00:15:56

Now the danger of this imminent concert concept or eminence called concept, on the basis of the false attributes of God being everywhere. Some claim that God was more in humans than in animals, vegetation and minerals logically, on that basis, some claim that God was more in them than in the rest of humans, either by following the indwelling of Allah and man, or by it, he had complete unification of the human soul, with the laws so called soul

00:15:58--> 00:16:11

among Muslim people of the ninth century, a deranged domestic and so called Saint by the name of Allah her lodge openly declared that he and a law were one.

00:16:12--> 00:16:26

No se writes a breakaway money. Shiite sect of the 10th century claimed that Prophet Mohammed Salim son in law, Ali, even I've been told him was a manifestation of Allah.

00:16:28--> 00:16:43

And another breakaway Shiite sect of the 11th century called the Jews were still around claim that the fourth image Shiite Calif and how can be umbrella was the last incarnation of God among men.

00:16:44--> 00:16:50

empanada be another so called Sufi saint of the 13th century,

00:16:52--> 00:17:21

exhorted his followers in his poetry, to pray to themselves and not to anything outside of themselves, because he believed that God was inside man, all men, all human beings, it may be concluded that the belief that Allah is everywhere is extremely dangerous, primarily because it encourages, defends and rationalizes the great sin in a lot of sight,

00:17:22--> 00:17:27

the greatest sin in a lot of sight, that is the worship of his creation.

00:17:28--> 00:17:36

So when you approach a Hindu and you try to discuss with them, you know, why are you worshiping this up this idol?

00:17:37--> 00:17:50

They say we're not worshiping the idol. That's the more philosophical ones among them, they will say we're not worshipping the idol. We're worshiping God who is present in the idol when we worship it.

00:17:54--> 00:18:05

So that's the rationale. Now, moving on to the application of this noble name, set,

00:18:07--> 00:18:10

lolly and Allah and Allah Tal,

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

Imam Ibn, but Paul had set for us four principles.

00:18:20--> 00:18:28

The first of which is to adopt the attribute, and the name where applicable,

00:18:29--> 00:18:36

the meanings of these Divine Names. These three Divine Names are Lally, Allah, Allah and

00:18:38--> 00:18:43

are beyond human imitation and application in any way.

00:18:45--> 00:19:00

However, we may adopt these Divine Names by worshipping a lot based on what the prophets Allah has told us to do, regarding his transcendence. For example,

00:19:01--> 00:19:24

we can make use of the last third of the night the browser Sallam informed us that Allah Allah Ali, descends to the lowest heaven each night. So we should make special use of this time for prayer. As tahajjud process alum said, The Lord descends every night to the lowest heaven.

00:19:25--> 00:19:27

When 1/3 of the night remains,

00:19:29--> 00:19:30

he says,

00:19:32--> 00:19:35

who will call upon me that I'm answering

00:19:36--> 00:19:45

will ask of me, that I may give Him and who will seek my forgiveness, that I may forgive him.

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

Most of us are concerned about a law not answering our prayers. Yet we have this open invitation from a lot each night, each and every night to have our prayers

00:20:00--> 00:20:15

Guaranteed an answer. We only have to sacrifice some sleep, and sincerely turned to him in focused solitude is not a deal worth making with a law who never breaks his promise.

00:20:18--> 00:20:23

We can also apply the names by rejecting pride and superiority.

00:20:25--> 00:20:40

We apply these names in our lives by not placing ourselves above others and considering ourselves superior due to worldly gifts which Allah gave us, on earned, we didn't earn them

00:20:42--> 00:20:49

as that lofty position is the permanent position and status belonging to Allah although

00:20:50--> 00:20:55

we cannot do anything except through the power of Allah matar

00:20:56--> 00:21:01

and everything that we have have comes from him.

00:21:02--> 00:21:27

In fact, our position as an opposition with Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah is determined by solely one crucial factor. The level of our taqwa that consciousness and righteousness, which we spoke about in previous names, in Surah, 100.

00:21:28--> 00:21:29

Allah

00:21:31--> 00:21:52

emphasized emphasize that point, calling on humankind, to recognize that He created us into male and female as a blessing, and made us people and peoples and tribes in order that we may know each other.

00:21:54--> 00:22:01

And then it closed off at verse, verse 13, saying, in our grammar command, the loi at the top of

00:22:02--> 00:22:15

the law, I Li moon Kabir, indeed the most noble among you, in the sight of Allah is the most God fearing.

00:22:16--> 00:22:19

Indeed, allies all knowing,

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

all aware.

00:22:25--> 00:23:11

So we should never place ourselves above others, because of our wealth, intelligence looks or lineage. We worship Allah Most High through these Divine Names by using our superior positions to help and guide all those below us. As Allah and Allah, the Most High supervises and monitors helps and guides us all. We should do the same for those who are below us. There is no such thing there is no such a not there is not so much that each and every one of us can cannot do for the oma.

00:23:13--> 00:23:25

We all can play a part in benefiting the oma and human civilization. We just need to find what it is that we can contribute.

00:23:27--> 00:23:33

And like, Holly, we can benefit others with the laws permission.

00:23:34--> 00:24:13

I always tell young and old Muslim audience is that if, when I was born in Kingston, Jamaica, I Christian parents were told that their son would grow up to become a Muslim scholar who would write more than 50 books on Islamic topics and set up a mega University online with over half a million registrants and have over 7 million followers on Facebook and be listed in the Jordanian journal of the 500 most influential Muslims in the world. They would have laughed

00:24:15--> 00:24:21

and laughed and laughed and said that that would be totally impossible.

00:24:22--> 00:24:30

My parents were Christians. I was pissed I was a baptized person, I was

00:24:32--> 00:24:55

born a Christian. However, Allah Allah Mittal can make the impossible possible. Whenever, wherever and however he wishes. We all have a part to play. And Allah Allah Ali has placed some of us over others just for this purpose.

00:24:57--> 00:24:58

And he said,

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

Well, well

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

Lizzie jellico Holly fan out, color fill out all of our local folk about the Rajat Leah Blue acoem FEMA attack,

00:25:14--> 00:25:29

and it is he was made us successors on earth, and has raised some of you above others in degree of rank, that he may try you through what he has given you.

00:25:32--> 00:25:35

It is all a part of the tests of this life.

00:25:36--> 00:25:45

As the last word Allah told us of a Hasidic Jew, Anima holla, na Kumar, Bertha wanna come, Elena, LA, todo john,

00:25:47--> 00:25:53

do you think we created you in vain, and that you would not be brought back to us?

00:25:57--> 00:25:58

It is,

00:25:59--> 00:26:24

in the realization of the existence of the test, that each and every one of us can find something to contribute, regardless of our position in life. We only have to realize this test, and to realize the reason behind a law placing us in different levels.

00:26:25--> 00:26:29

Once we have grasped that, then we contribute.

00:26:31--> 00:26:35

We have contributed obviously, according to

00:26:36--> 00:26:38

our own station,

00:26:39--> 00:26:40

we don't have to say

00:26:42--> 00:26:43

if only I had

00:26:44--> 00:26:56

the wealth of Bill Gates, I would do this and I would do that and I'll do the other for the Muslim world. For the oma, I would do wonders, if only I had.

00:26:58--> 00:27:06

No, we don't have to say that. You look at what you do have and do wonders with what you have.

00:27:07--> 00:27:11

Because Allah knows best. If you got the wealth of Bill Gates,

00:27:13--> 00:27:14

you wouldn't do any of it.

00:27:17--> 00:27:22

The second principle of immutable

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

was to confirm were unique and inapplicable.

00:27:28--> 00:27:43

We can practically confirm the uniqueness of these three attributes a lolly an island and Mittal to Allah by being their intellectual, psychological and emotional opposites.

00:27:45--> 00:27:53

Along with trying not to be hot, we can also strive to be its opposite. humble.

00:27:54--> 00:28:07

Among the good manners believer may adopt his humble submission to the glory of Allah Ali. We should train ourselves to submit as completely as possible to him

00:28:09--> 00:28:28

and place no one or not no thing above him in our daily lives. We must use our Ramadan lessons to fight our desires and train ourselves to show patience and gratitude in all situations for the sake of Allah Ali.

00:28:29--> 00:28:42

As the prophet SAW Solomon said mantova Lila, Rafa Omar, whoever humbles himself before Allah, Allah will elevate him.

00:28:43--> 00:28:47

Manta wa inna Rafa.

00:28:48--> 00:29:07

Practically, we can physically put ourselves in the position of humility, most beloved by Allah and closest to Allah. And that is, ensued, according to the province As salam were closest to Allah.

00:29:08--> 00:29:20

The highest Allah Allah, when we are introduced, which is the lowest position we can possibly put ourselves in. And that is why the main

00:29:21--> 00:29:32

Sunitha for sujood is Suhana Rob Bell, Allah, glory be to my Lord on high

00:29:33--> 00:29:58

which should again be said properly and will with full reflection. As we said before, when we spoke about Subhan Allah we allowed him we looked at the name of Allah allow them similarly, we mentioned them to that sort of how neurobiol Allah should not turn into spider spider spider or not

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

This is an insult to a loss.

00:30:06--> 00:30:10

So should say it. So perhaps Rob bl

00:30:12--> 00:30:15

say it and be able to reflect on it.

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

Consequently, we should take advantage of the daily opportunities, we have to benefit from the great rewards which Jude carries the browser solemn tortoise prostrate much

00:30:31--> 00:30:46

often because there is no Muslim, that prostrates to Allah, except that Allah raises him by a degree in paradise for it and forgives him as in

00:30:47--> 00:30:54

this is authentically reported by Imam Malik humble is mustard

00:30:56--> 00:30:57

was straight much

00:30:59--> 00:30:59

in prayer.

00:31:01--> 00:31:04

Out of prayer, it's so dude I sugar

00:31:07--> 00:31:18

because there is no Muslim, that prostrates to Allah accept except that Allah raises him by a degree in paradise

00:31:19--> 00:31:24

because of it and forgives him for us in

00:31:26--> 00:31:50

the more times that we prostrate, or the longer we spend into Jude, without abandoning the rule of following the amount when we're in congregational prayer, the more we raise our ranks in Paradise, until we reach the highest level, genital feldhaus. In sha Allah. This is where Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah will reside

00:31:51--> 00:32:02

and it is the roof or the roof of this magnificent level is the throne of Allah and Ali himself subhana wa Tada.

00:32:04--> 00:32:19

However, we must make sure that we don't just prostrate with our bodies. But more importantly, that we prostrate with our minds, our hearts and our souls with full humanity.

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

The third principle of even batal is to find hope where there is a promise in the Divine Names. And these Divine Names are lolly and Allah.

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

While seeming on one hand to distance us from a law distance or law from us being Most High, on the other hand, they are countered by other divine attributes which we'll be looking at which focus on a loss of absolute closeness, which nothing can come between.

00:32:57--> 00:33:09

So a lot of Sparta Allah is high, yet close. Sometimes we become so absorbed with life stress or grief that we forget that Allah Allah

00:33:10--> 00:33:19

who is above everything is at the same time the closest to us. Allah reminded us of his close to saying

00:33:21--> 00:33:28

well after the Silicon Valley in Santa when Allah Mamata was with to be here enough laughs

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

when

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

la he made the hublin worried

00:33:35--> 00:33:48

and I have already created humankind. I know what their souls whisper to themselves, for I'm closer to them than their juggler. veyts.

00:33:50--> 00:34:11

If we take this literally implies that the lies within us but this is not the meaning based on all that we know of Allah. Such a meaning supports the idea of worshiping Allah in everything in all of his creation, etc.

00:34:12--> 00:34:18

And it's not a part of correct Islamic belief or theology.

00:34:21--> 00:34:32

In times of hardship, we should know that Allah is the supreme creator above the Throne. But at the same time, he's the only one who knows exactly what we're doing.

00:34:33--> 00:34:41

So we should tell him all that we feel and beg him to help us battle with our trials.

00:34:43--> 00:34:45

We should also

00:34:47--> 00:34:48

worship Allah,

00:34:49--> 00:34:50

Allah Lally.

00:34:52--> 00:34:53

In such a way

00:34:54--> 00:34:58

that we can find hope in our times of despair.

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

We should know that we're not supposed to lose hope

00:35:05--> 00:35:09

of receiving the mercy of Allah and Allah.

00:35:11--> 00:35:18

As such a spiritual act is clearly a common thought of those who disbelieve in God.

00:35:19--> 00:35:21

Allah law most high already said,

00:35:22--> 00:35:23

a lot a

00:35:24--> 00:35:32

mirage Allah, in no lie so Mirage and lie, Ill powerful kaffee rule.

00:35:34--> 00:35:36

Do not despair,

00:35:37--> 00:35:47

relief coming from Allah. Indeed, no one despairs or relief coming from Allah except the disbelieving people.

00:35:49--> 00:35:57

However, Satan often tricks us into another kind of despair, that is despair in ourselves.

00:35:58--> 00:36:03

Can we remember ourselves, saying at some time

00:36:04--> 00:36:13

or another, I will never change, or I will never be able to do this. So why even bother to try

00:36:15--> 00:36:19

about others, they will never change

00:36:20--> 00:36:26

such statements or open doubts about the power of a law. And

00:36:28--> 00:36:32

when we say there is no way that a law will ever forgive me,

00:36:34--> 00:36:43

I'm doing so many bad things. We're actually lowering a law may be exalted to human standards of forgiveness.

00:36:44--> 00:37:14

So next time, we have that sinking feeling, that we cannot change a certain habit, or we repeatedly keep committing the same sin over and over again. We should call on a law of Medina and ask him to assist us with an unshakable belief in his loftiness over all hurdles, and his infinite ability to help us change no matter what situation where,

00:37:15--> 00:37:26

as Abu huraira quoted Providence as Allah saying, for the law, and to move to Luna will Java color law being certain of his response?

00:37:28--> 00:37:44

But while mo and the law realize that he will do on the call been often in law, but know that a law will not answer his application, from a negligent and heedless heart?

00:37:46--> 00:37:48

So we should ask Allah,

00:37:49--> 00:37:53

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah to

00:37:56--> 00:38:15

ask him for the highest level, in Paradise, the ultimate we can ask him for paradise. But don't stop there. Ask him for the highest levels of progress. I'll feel down salada right under the throne of Lodi

00:38:16--> 00:38:32

private sauce, Elon said, when you ask him, Allah asked him for alpha dollars, for it is in the middle of paradise. And it is the highest part of Paradise and above it is the throne of the Most Merciful.

00:38:33--> 00:38:37

And from it the rivers of Paradise spring forth.

00:38:39--> 00:38:42

So we should call on

00:38:43--> 00:38:44

Allah

00:38:45--> 00:38:46

the Most High

00:38:48--> 00:38:51

and not hold back in our prayers.

00:38:53--> 00:39:10

Allah loves it. When we are insistent in our prayers, unlike human beings, when people call on you and they constantly insistent calling and calling and calling, you know, you get bored.

00:39:12--> 00:39:21

You know, you've heard enough. You don't want to see them anymore. This is not a lot. Last one, but I love that we turn to him

00:39:23--> 00:39:27

and repeatedly call on you sincerely

00:39:28--> 00:39:29

for his help.

00:39:32--> 00:39:33

The fourth

00:39:34--> 00:39:47

principle of even ba Paul is to have fear where there is a warning in the names. These Divine Names define for us where a law should be in our lives

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

is if he is not there. Then we should fear a wretched life ahead of us. As a law said, Oh man, our other and decree

00:40:00--> 00:40:07

For in the level my schatten banca we're not sure who your multi Amati Arma

00:40:09--> 00:40:14

and whoever turns away from my remembrance will have a depressing life.

00:40:16--> 00:40:21

And I will gather them on the Day of Resurrection, blind.

00:40:25--> 00:40:29

So what is the option here we have to prioritize?

00:40:30--> 00:40:32

is Allah really

00:40:34--> 00:40:38

Allah, Allah and tal in our lives?

00:40:39--> 00:41:00

We can easily find out by looking at where the deeds he lovingly wants us to carry out like Salah are on our list, our daily list? Do we fit our daily prayers around our daily activities? Or life activities? delaying them or forgetting to pray them?

00:41:01--> 00:41:06

Or do we put our daily prayers first, above anything else?

00:41:08--> 00:41:14

As opposed to as Adam informed us that the best prayers are those done at the beginning of the time?

00:41:15--> 00:41:23

Or do we finish watching our favorite TV show? And then see if we have time left for reading the Quran?

00:41:24--> 00:41:29

Or does reading the Quran even come to our minds outside of Ramadan?

00:41:31--> 00:41:39

Do we start our day by checking the messages on our phones or be are by reciting from the book of Allah Allah.

00:41:41--> 00:41:55

We should test our daily schedule for acts of worships don't have priority, change it and we will see how blessed productive and peaceful he will soon begin to feel.

00:41:56--> 00:42:07

We should start and end our days by reciting the Quran. Quran Algol Allah, Allah Ali, and

00:42:10--> 00:42:13

now close our session. Today's session

00:42:14--> 00:42:19

calling on a lie using these names or lie Yeah, I Li

00:42:20--> 00:42:22

Yeah, yeah.

00:42:24--> 00:42:34

Help us to prioritize you in our lives to keep you transcendent above everything. We hold dear and precious.

00:42:36--> 00:42:37

Yeah, I'm gonna die.

00:42:38--> 00:42:49

Make us hold on firmly to the religion you prescribe for us and protect us from low esteem, depression and failure.

00:42:50--> 00:42:51

me

00:42:53--> 00:42:59

borrow a lot of people. Salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

00:43:01--> 00:43:09

will now shift to the third portion of our session. Today's session number 30.

00:43:11--> 00:43:17

And look at your questions in sha Allah

00:43:24--> 00:43:27

The first question comes from

00:43:29--> 00:43:30

Faisal Ali.

00:43:31--> 00:43:33

What constitutes the beard?

00:43:36--> 00:43:39

You said the beard is what is on the lower jaw

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

and shed

00:43:48--> 00:43:57

alumina gin solid should be that Sally share solid aged said beard is is what is

00:43:58--> 00:44:01

in the lower jaw it's not gonna be in this has to be on

00:44:02--> 00:44:07

cheeks and upper jaw

00:44:09--> 00:44:10

please clarify this issue.

00:44:12--> 00:44:47

Well, mine is more general Yeah, Jo Laura joy is what? This is the one that moves up and down. That's your Lord job. So that Lord job does it stop here? No. It goes all the way up. You can still feel it. The move is all the way up to here. That lower jaw connects to the skull all the way up here. So it's all of this. So whether you call it thinking that the lower jaw is just what's here, and then what's here is your cheek and so it has to be cheek has to be mentioned. You know, and

00:44:48--> 00:44:51

upper jaw. You know your upper jaw.

00:44:54--> 00:44:55

Actually

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

it's not on your upper jaw what's on your upper

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

jaw is your moustache.

00:45:03--> 00:45:04

That's not your beard.

00:45:05--> 00:45:19

Well, for some people yeah, you know, they're the hair grows so much onto the cheek that we can say yes, it's under upper jaw. So I you know, these are relative terms. We all know what the beard is.

00:45:21--> 00:45:24

We all know what the beard is

00:45:28--> 00:45:43

kosamba Zubair, why is it so common in the time in this time for things like gin possession, and rookie reciting, which was not so common during the proxxon, silent era?

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

Or is it the same?

00:45:48--> 00:45:49

Well,

00:45:50--> 00:45:55

Allah knows best. It was common enough that there were a lot of reports

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

and the prompts are seldom gave to us to deal with it.

00:46:00--> 00:46:03

So I don't think it's probably

00:46:07--> 00:46:09

it was possibly less common then

00:46:10--> 00:46:11

than it was now.

00:46:12--> 00:46:22

Because where evil, demonic satanic forces were

00:46:23--> 00:46:27

attacking the believers, then they attack the believers now.

00:46:30--> 00:46:35

They may not have been as successful back then, as they are now. But nonetheless,

00:46:36--> 00:46:38

their attack is

00:46:39--> 00:46:40

continuing

00:46:42--> 00:46:57

the body suit on a mere, some false sex in our country used to debate those who care the truth about the concept of or low

00:46:58--> 00:47:00

or transcendence of a law.

00:47:03--> 00:47:12

If they default sex, cannot accept the truth, they want to end up in mobile holla.

00:47:14--> 00:47:15

Is it appropriate

00:47:16--> 00:47:19

to end up in such a mobile

00:47:21--> 00:47:27

obala meaning that, you know, we, together

00:47:28--> 00:47:31

ask Allah to

00:47:34--> 00:47:36

destroy, punish.

00:47:38--> 00:47:40

The one was robbed,

00:47:42--> 00:47:43

boys

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

in error,

00:47:51--> 00:47:53

if that's what it takes

00:47:54--> 00:47:59

to confront them, and they're pushing this, then

00:48:01--> 00:48:02

why one may do so.

00:48:05--> 00:48:10

However, this should not be the standard method.

00:48:11--> 00:48:16

The standard method shouldn't be to present the facts.

00:48:18--> 00:48:24

The facts for those who want to know the truth, it will be clear

00:48:25--> 00:48:26

in sha Allah

00:48:34--> 00:48:36

the body again asks,

00:48:37--> 00:48:45

What is your advice to aspiring father the grind for them to be more productive in reviewing grad?

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

Well,

00:48:51--> 00:48:56

I would just remind those who are engaged in memorizing

00:48:58--> 00:49:02

the Sahaba informed us that

00:49:05--> 00:49:11

whoever amongst them had meant that word memorize the whole Koran.

00:49:12--> 00:49:15

They were given the title of Haffield

00:49:18--> 00:49:19

once they memorize the whole Quran

00:49:22--> 00:49:32

today, they're given the title of half this. And if you gave the title of half to somebody who only memorize Surah Al Baqarah.

00:49:33--> 00:49:35

Then people would be

00:49:37--> 00:49:37

upset.

00:49:39--> 00:49:39

They would

00:49:41--> 00:49:42

label you a deviant.

00:49:45--> 00:49:47

But the Sahaba themselves said,

00:49:48--> 00:49:52

Why no memorize your mantra because your book is so comprehensive.

00:49:54--> 00:49:56

They were given the title of half

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

when the prophet SAW Selim died

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

Less than 10 of his companions had memorized the whole Quran out of 80,060 to 80,000 companions.

00:50:13--> 00:50:14

So Al Baqarah

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

was a goal

00:50:21--> 00:50:28

and as they said, We used to learn it 10 verses at a time some said seven verses that attack

00:50:29--> 00:50:38

we would move on to the next group until we understood everything which was in that

00:50:40--> 00:50:42

group and

00:50:43--> 00:50:45

we tried to apply it

00:50:47--> 00:50:52

the learned knowledge and application together

00:50:54--> 00:50:55

so

00:50:57--> 00:50:59

my recommendation is that

00:51:01--> 00:51:04

you strive at least with swirl Baccarat

00:51:06--> 00:51:07

as you're memorizing

00:51:09--> 00:51:14

to go through the tafsir and understand so are Baccarat

00:51:15--> 00:51:16

as

00:51:18--> 00:51:20

perfectly as you can.

00:51:22--> 00:51:31

That if you all you can, when you graduate all you can teach, you're able to teach soil Baccarat with the tafsir to the oma.

00:51:32--> 00:51:37

You will make a real difference in Sharla. If

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

you have any questions from Instagram students,

00:51:57--> 00:51:58

oh,

00:51:59--> 00:52:01

that's name and our raffia

00:52:03--> 00:52:07

asks, does the meaning of the names of Allah

00:52:10--> 00:52:12

should they be practiced

00:52:13--> 00:52:15

in a balanced way?

00:52:18--> 00:52:19

Matan wasa

00:52:21--> 00:52:24

as a slave of Allah. Well, of course,

00:52:25--> 00:52:40

whenever we practice, whenever we implement Islam, whether it's from the Divine Names or it's from the Sunnah, or on whatever, it should be done

00:52:42--> 00:52:46

moderately without going to one extreme or another.

00:52:48--> 00:52:49

Finding that middle way.

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

The balance nation that our Lord described us as absolute

00:52:59--> 00:53:06

from Instagram, we have a question, Instagram students, how do I guide myself

00:53:08--> 00:53:12

for self reading, this is my first session

00:53:13--> 00:53:15

for self reading.

00:53:16--> 00:53:17

That's not clear.

00:53:23--> 00:53:26

Anyway, welcome. This is your first session welcome.

00:53:28--> 00:53:30

But your question is unclear.

00:53:33--> 00:53:33

To me Ah.

00:53:36--> 00:53:37

One

00:53:39--> 00:53:51

is is it allowed to visit graves and recite Quran loudly No. problems as Alan said, Don't make your home's graveyards

00:53:53--> 00:53:58

recite Quran in your home. What does that mean?

00:53:59--> 00:54:04

It means Koran is not to be recited in graveyards.

00:54:06--> 00:54:07

These authentic hadith

00:54:08--> 00:54:11

don't make your homes like graveyards

00:54:14--> 00:54:14

in which

00:54:17--> 00:54:21

Quran is not recited recite Quran in your homes

00:54:31--> 00:54:32

from

00:54:35--> 00:54:36

Instagram

00:54:41--> 00:54:56

Hamad Salafi Is it true if we refer to Allah by the name's Rob and I will pay you are doers are more likely to be answered. No, it's not true.

00:54:58--> 00:55:00

There is no proof of that no evidence

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

Isn't that

00:55:02--> 00:55:08

only the province Arsalan has the authority to say that Yeah, there may be people saying it,

00:55:09--> 00:55:11

share this one beer that one,

00:55:12--> 00:55:13

etc.

00:55:16--> 00:55:24

But only rasoolillah sauce lm has the authority to make that claim to make that statement.

00:55:30--> 00:55:31

Salva

00:55:33--> 00:55:38

asks, you mentioned that if a person wanted to have

00:55:39--> 00:55:40

much wealth

00:55:42--> 00:55:43

he

00:55:44--> 00:55:50

should give for a lot. But, but you won't give.

00:55:51--> 00:55:57

So does this means a person is in a lower position based on what

00:55:58--> 00:55:59

one can contribute?

00:56:03--> 00:56:05

That's quite clear, but

00:56:06--> 00:56:07

fuzzy.

00:56:11--> 00:56:20

It's not the amount. This narration the prompts or sentiment said, I forgotten the exact amount, but like, one

00:56:21--> 00:56:45

year um, you know, a person, four person gives one Durham and a rich person gives 100 Your hands are 1000 their hats in the browser Sallam said something to the effect that that one there ham of the poor person preceded the 1000s of the rich person.

00:56:46--> 00:56:55

It was greater in the sight of Allah, Allah gave a much greater report right reward for that one day

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

while the one who gave 1000 but the one who gave 1000 had a million,

00:57:02--> 00:57:06

the one who gave one only had two

00:57:07--> 00:57:08

or three.

00:57:09--> 00:57:16

So that, in fact, the one who gave less is more highly rewarded by a loss

00:57:17--> 00:57:21

because of the quality of what he gave.

00:57:24--> 00:57:26

Or she gave a

00:57:29--> 00:57:41

general question first, and then identify themselves, what to do with her arm pills. And all my clothes are bought with her arm money.

00:57:47--> 00:57:49

Money which was stolen,

00:57:50--> 00:57:52

give it away to the poor.

00:57:54--> 00:57:59

I mean, if it's gonna remove all the clothes, you have no clothes, you'll be walking around without clothes, no.

00:58:01--> 00:58:19

But you give away all that you can start earning replace, and give away the rest that you purchased using stolen money and seek forgiveness of the person you stole it for from as well as seek forgiveness from Allah.

00:58:26--> 00:58:29

from Instagram, students.

00:58:33--> 00:58:35

No, pencil Ali,

00:58:36--> 00:58:42

talking about my sin to my friends or others? Is that a sin?

00:58:43--> 00:58:48

Well, it depends on how you're talking about. If you've committed a sin,

00:58:49--> 00:58:50

and

00:58:51--> 00:58:53

you feel bad about it,

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

and you're informing others so that they would avoid this and

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

that they would give you further advice, whatever, then does no harm but if you're boasting about this, is saying I did this and I did that and you know, you feel proud and great, of course as evil

00:59:15--> 00:59:17

that is surely evil.

00:59:22--> 00:59:30

But what if I don't pray someday out of laziness? And my friends asked me, did I pray?

00:59:31--> 00:59:40

What should I do at that time? Tell the truth, or tell a lie. Tell the truth. The truth will set you free.

00:59:43--> 00:59:44

Tell the truth.

00:59:47--> 00:59:48

Feel remorseful.

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

Don't feel shy because these your friends are asking you feel shy to tell them the truth, but you don't feel shy.

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

to disobey Allah

01:00:05--> 01:00:06

that's serious

01:00:10--> 01:00:17

from Instagram students, how can you cure evil eye from people if you cannot get them

01:00:18--> 01:00:22

to do listen to use that water to be in

01:00:24--> 01:00:27

is that the only way to remove the blind?

01:00:30--> 01:00:31

The question

01:00:33--> 01:00:36

concerns removal of the fly.

01:00:39--> 01:00:41

Now, the problem is I still am did recommend

01:00:42--> 01:00:43

the person if you know

01:00:44--> 01:00:48

the person who seems to be connected to it

01:00:52--> 01:01:07

that you ask them you will collect the water the water the water the making wudu and the water leftover from the Voodoo such as to take that water I may not be enough to base but we may have to add more water to it and bathe with it.

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

He suggested that that be done.

01:01:17--> 01:01:18

Now,

01:01:20--> 01:01:34

if you can't get that water is there not nothing else you can do of course you can make drop and the Rokia we talked about rokeya different types of rocker which are from the Sunnah

01:01:35--> 01:01:50

which involve do as a surprise are seldom taught etc. recitation of cron, etc. So we've got a variety of things to do that we can do that is just

01:01:51--> 01:01:54

helpful if we're able

01:01:56--> 01:02:00

to just like where magic has been put on us.

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

In the case of Proverbs or Salaam,

01:02:04--> 01:02:06

the angels that come to him

01:02:08--> 01:02:16

I had informed him that the person who did it lobby had been awesome

01:02:18--> 01:02:20

in Medina, a Jewish

01:02:25--> 01:02:28

magic you know, practice practitioner

01:02:31--> 01:02:36

he had prepared a magical

01:02:39--> 01:02:40

object

01:02:42--> 01:02:43

for

01:02:44--> 01:02:46

facilitating

01:02:47--> 01:02:48

contact with the jinn

01:02:50--> 01:02:52

to affect the prophet SAW Salem.

01:02:54--> 01:03:12

And the location which in which he buried it in a well in Medina which had dried up was at the bottom of the well. He was able to send it but I be told it to go there dig it up from the from the well bring it back

01:03:14--> 01:03:33

to the province I sell them and dismantle it while saying the calls the last two calls for louder grabbing Falak pull out the Robin NASS like these were revealed for breaking spells.

01:03:35--> 01:03:36

So

01:03:37--> 01:03:44

I mean, of course, it's used in prayer and everything else. But it also has that power.

01:03:46--> 01:03:54

When recited properly, and with the aid of Allah, Allah, the angels.

01:03:56--> 01:03:59

You can be exorcised from evil,

01:04:00--> 01:04:09

purified cleansed from evil using these, the recitation of the surahs conscious recitation

01:04:10--> 01:04:11

with reflection

01:04:19--> 01:04:38

from the as decimo I have a sister who doesn't wear hijab. I don't like walking with her outside like that. I don't like that she goes out with our mother also not wearing a job. What should I do?

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

Well,

01:04:42--> 01:04:45

you have to tell her Grafton former

01:04:47--> 01:04:48

advisor,

01:04:49--> 01:04:59

try to find some of your friends who have sisters who are practicing, who can befriend her and help her you know, get the she's obviously

01:05:00--> 01:05:11

gets big enough, she's not a little girl. So you know, you need to get others who she might respect to our elderly, to her whatever, to speak to her.

01:05:16--> 01:05:31

But in terms of going out with her, I mean, obviously, that's association that people see you with her whether you're exposed to how UK animals come to this, you know, that's what you know you're worried about, but your worry should be more for your sister than to what people are going to say.

01:05:36--> 01:05:37

Merriam, chazy

01:05:39--> 01:05:43

shazi? What is the ruling on siblings?

01:05:44--> 01:06:11

As I am the elder why I siblings don't obey me. Well, you know, there is no rule, which says that the older brother eldest brother is to be obeyed, then the next eldest down, so, you know, you have a hierarchy? Not really, at all, but just traditionally, in many societies, it's that way, the elder one

01:06:12--> 01:06:15

is like next to the Father.

01:06:16--> 01:06:16

So

01:06:18--> 01:06:25

he is the one in authority in the absence of the Father, but it could be whoever

01:06:26--> 01:06:29

has the

01:06:31--> 01:06:35

wherewithal all are the the nature or the

01:06:36--> 01:06:37

ability

01:06:39--> 01:06:39

to lead

01:06:40--> 01:06:59

you know, maybe you have a group of brothers, but the eldest ones, they don't have that ability. They're shy, they're whatever, but then there is amongst them one who is more forceful, more dominant, more able to speak on behalf of everyone and then that's the one

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

you know, who should take the leadership position

01:07:09--> 01:07:14

from faizal Ali Can we say yeah, Ali help

01:07:15--> 01:07:19

but the intention that it is one of our last names Yes.

01:07:21--> 01:07:26

But if we're thinking yeah, Lee, it may not be taught him help me then of course that ship

01:07:31--> 01:07:39

from our Instagram students, do I have to pass my Miss days of Ramadan and then shaohua or can I faster? Well, first,

01:07:42--> 01:07:46

well, the best thing you can do either,

01:07:47--> 01:07:55

but the best thing is to do the Miss days of Ramadan, first

01:07:56--> 01:08:00

they are farmed wajib on you.

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

Whereas the six of show while our Sunnah recommended.

01:08:05--> 01:08:13

So common sense tells us that what is wajib should be given precedence over watch it sooner.

01:08:14--> 01:08:15

But

01:08:16--> 01:08:28

if you decided to go and do the six first and then do the others after but you had that intention to do the other thing, inshallah, you know, it's acceptable doesn't nullify, but

01:08:30--> 01:08:35

still, what is obligatory should be done first.

01:08:36--> 01:08:37

That is the better way

01:08:38--> 01:08:43

while what is recommended, done first and then what is

01:08:45--> 01:08:48

obligatory then after that is still acceptable.

01:08:53--> 01:08:54

Question

01:08:57--> 01:09:11

when I hate my mother, but I don't say that to her. I keep it to myself. Well, I go to hell. I pray five times a day. No, no. You hate your mother depends on the reason.

01:09:13--> 01:09:25

If you hate her because she has badly treated you, she is ill treated you. She's doing things which are not good, etc, etc. It is natural for you to hate her.

01:09:27--> 01:09:31

Though at the same time, you should still love her as your mother.

01:09:32--> 01:09:44

If her evil or corruption, she may be a drug dealer, whatever. She's been to all kinds of things. You have perfectly legitimate reasons for hating her. So you're not going to go to hell for eating her.

01:09:47--> 01:09:59

It's just when you hate because you don't like some of the things she does but what she's doing is not her arm or anything like that. You just don't like it. You don't like the way she does certain things. So you hate it. You know you say I hate

01:10:00--> 01:10:08

She does this I feel hate, but it's not real hate, because she's just doing something you don't like.

01:10:09--> 01:10:36

But even if you have that kind of, quote unquote hate, it's still not gonna put you in hell because of it. Why does you treat her properly externally? You know, you do what she asked you to do, etc, you know, then you're not cut ties without the one where the processor like I said, you know, ever cut ties with the family will not enter Paradise. So there is no problems

01:10:40--> 01:10:42

under law that you pray five times a day

01:10:44--> 01:10:47

prayers, erase sin.

01:10:49--> 01:10:51

David, can you clarify?

01:10:53--> 01:11:11

Will Allah not change the condition of our people until they change themselves? The famous verse in the Brian, in the law Layer Layer, Bobby Coleman had a rule, maybe unforeseen law doesn't change the condition of people until they change themselves. In

01:11:12--> 01:11:17

fact, it is that verse, which I made the motto

01:11:18--> 01:11:27

for my university, the International University, changing the nation through education.

01:11:28--> 01:11:41

No, of course, not the exact same wording, but the idea of changing the nation that, you know, by changing that nation, that it will change the overall situation of the oma. So

01:11:42--> 01:11:47

what is meant here is that, you know, on an individual level,

01:11:50--> 01:11:55

to try to change your condition without changing yourself is often futile.

01:11:58--> 01:12:13

That the condition you're in may be a result of your own errors. So you need to correct those errors and fix the things that are with you before trying to change the things outside of

01:12:14--> 01:12:15

a while trying to change

01:12:17--> 01:12:20

as much as you can while trying to change.

01:12:22--> 01:12:25

So, this is the idea that you know,

01:12:27--> 01:12:32

don't focus everything on the outside and you forget yourself.

01:12:33--> 01:12:49

Tomorrow and NASA will will return so now. The Lord said, Are you gonna command people to do good while forgetting yourself? You're not doing good. But you're telling everybody do good, do good. Be good.

01:12:51--> 01:12:55

So this is the concept behind the verse.

01:12:57--> 01:12:58

With that,

01:13:00--> 01:13:07

if we don't have anything else from our students from Instagram, which we don't seem to,

01:13:08--> 01:13:12

we will now close our session.

01:13:13--> 01:13:16

So panic Aloma humbucker the shadow

01:13:20--> 01:13:23
