All praise is due to alanya loss Peace and blessings. We on the last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.
This is the 31st session, or class. And in it, we'll be looking at two names, and how feel and I'll have field names 45 and 46, meaning the preserver and the guardian.
In terms of the location, in the Quran,
and half faith
is mentioned only once.
where Allah says, follow higher rune haffi law. Whoa, whoa, our hammer rock came in. But Elia is the best guardian and He is the Most Merciful of those who show mercy.
In the case of ALLAH hafiz
that is mentioned three times in the Quran among them in Arabi.
Allah, Allah Shea in haffi.
In terms of the meaning linguistically, both these two Divine Names and how Phil and Al have he'll come from the trilateral route have
evolved, and are derived from the Geron half of half of them, which has three main meanings. The first meaning is to garden protect, retain, preserve, and to take care of
the second meaning
to safeguard or to prevent from perishing or becoming lost. The third meaning is to be watchful, mindful, attentive and vigilant.
Haffield is the intensive form of the present participle halfhill
according to the file, pattern, which you are familiar with, or many others of the Divine Names that we have looked at.
in the Koran, women who guard their property,
or the property of their husbands, in their husbands absence, are called half ivatan. Little vibe. Literally preservers of the unforeseen.
The root appears 45 times in the Koran in eight derived forms. Examples of these forms can be found in halfling guardians, my fool
happy nah ha, we protected it verb.
Both these Divine Names ALLAH hafiz, and Allah Hafiz
may be used in reference to human beings
as it has been used in the Quran on more than one occasion.
For example, when prophet Yusuf
asked to be appointed in charge of the grain warehouses of Egypt, he said all edge call Ajani.
Allah has any out of any huffy, rune, alim.
He said, put me in charge of the warehouses of the land. Indeed, I'm a knowledgeable guardian.
Relative to Allah this Divine Name, Al Hafiz and Al hafi.
Both means that the almighty safeguards things by knowing all the details, and that such knowledge is not affected by decrease oversight negligence or forgetfulness. The other meaning is that
a lot of safeguards things from temporary loss or total extinction
with regards to the Koran
Allah has guided it.
Both of the two meanings of these names can be found in the major historical event of the preservation of the Quran.
Allah The Guardian and preserver protected the Quran like no other scripture before or after.
The contents of the book were preserved from change and the book itself was preserved from loss.
There is no other book, religious book in the history
of the world,
even non religious book from ancient times, which has been memorized, preserved in our memory on this scale in recorded history.
The Quran is about four fifths of the length of the New Testament of the Christians. There are not a single person in recorded history is known to have memorized the New Testament in its entirety, especially from ancient times. In fact, if all the books in the world were somehow destroyed, the only book which could be read with written word for word, without a single mistake, is the Glorious Quran.
One of the leading Western oriented is Kenneth crag died in 2012. a non Muslim said the following regarding the memorization and preservation of the Quranic text.
This phenomenon of Quranic recital means that the text has traversed the centuries in an unbroken living sequence of devotion.
It cannot therefore be handled as an antiquarian thing, nor as a historical document out of a distant past.
In terms of the significance of the grants preservation, Allah promised in the Quran that he would take responsibility for protecting his final word from any loss. He said,
in national zelner vichara were in LA hula hafizullah. Indeed, it is I who revealed the reminder the Quran, and indeed I will be its guardian.
Thus, the Quran has been preserved in both the oral as well as written form, in one way,
or in a way no other religious book in history has ever been.
The commonly asked question regarding this established fact that Muslims emphasize Why did a lord preserve the Quran and allow earlier books of divine revelation to be changed or lost?
The answer to this question lies in three points or three facts.
The first is that the earlier prophets and their books were sent to particular people in particular places during particular periods of history.
Once the period ended, a new Prophet was sent with a new book to replace the previous book, where changes were made to the previous book.
So, it was not necessary that these individual books be preserved by law.
The preservation of the earlier books was left up to the people as a test for them.
Thus, when the people went astray, they change what was written in the books, which there earlier prophets brought in order to make allowable some of the things which will had been forbidden to them. In that way, all the earlier books of revelation became either changed or lost.
reason, since Prophet Muhammad wa sallam was the last prophet, whom Allah sent, he was not sent only to a particular people or a particular time
to Arabs in the seventh century. Instead, he was sent to all of humankind until the end of the world. As a law said in the Quran matters.
NACA elac fatten Lin nasci Bashir on one of the raw. Well, I can ask for a nasty lie Allah moon. I've only sent you Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, as a giver of glad tidings, and a warner to all humankind, but most people do not understand.
Thus the divine message contained in the book of Revelation. The Koran, given to him had to be specifically preserved from any form or change or loss, so that its divine message would be available to all generations of humankind, until the last day of this world.
The third principle or point, human beings have a natural distaste towards submitting to another to other human beings, unless they are forced by the latter's physical strength is mental superiority or if they are shown apparently magical feats far beyond the abilities of any other human being.
In the first two cases, they yield reluctantly, while in the third case, they yield because of their belief in a higher force, or power, defying all human comparison.
Therefore, Allah not only favorite His messengers with revelation, but he also granted them miracles, clearly proving to the people the divine origin and truthfulness of their messages.
The inability of people to imitate the miracles of the profits, made them willingly bear witness to a laws unity, and obey the commandments of the profits.
Due to the difficulties involved in communication and transportation, the early profits were sent only to the people
among whom they were raised up.
Thus, the miracles which they brought, were particularly suited to the areas of knowledge in which the people excelled, in order for the miracle in order for the miracles to have the maximum effect on them.
For example, Prophet Moses was
raised up among the Egyptians,
who are noted for their mastery of the occult arts of sorcery and magic. Consequently, Allah gave Prophet Moses the miracle of being able to place his apparently normal hand inside his cloak, and then extract it shining brilliantly.
And he turned Moses stuff into a snake,
which scared even Moses himself.
However, when the sorcerers and magicians were gathered by Pharaoh to challenge Moses, his miracles, their staffs appeared to the audience, as snakes, like those that have Prophet Moses, however, Allah turn Prophet Moses his stuff into a huge real snake, which devour the fake snakes of his opponents.
That defeat was sufficient proof for the magicians and sorcerers who knew that no one could actually change the nature of a stick, as Moses had done.
Thus, they immediately fell down in frustration of submission, and sincere belief in the God of Moses, in spite of the threats to their lives uttered by their master, Pharaoh, or their former master Pharaoh.
Another example is that of Prophet Jesus, who was chosen to be a prophet, by Allah from among the Jews.
The last among them, because the Jews were especially noted for their exceptional abilities in the field of medicine, whereby Jewish doctors were highly respected and revered for their seemingly magical ability to mend bones, heal wounds and cure the sick,
alive favorite Prophet Jesus, with the miraculous ability to make the blind see
To make the lame walk, and to bring the dead back to life.
These abilities were so clearly beyond those of the Jewish doctors of that day that the believers accepted him on questioningly.
For those still harboring doubts, Allah gave Prophet Jesus, an even more dazzling miracle, that of being able to mold birds out of clay, blow on them, and they would fly away living birds. This is recorded in the Quran, but not in the gospels, which Christians have in their hands today.
Since Prophet Muhammad SAW Salam was the last of the prophets
sent not only to a particular people, but to all of humankind.
He was given a miracle
which would not only Amaze The people among whom he was raised,
but which would challenge and Amaze The human mind until the last day of this world.
However, Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam like the other prophets before him was also given a number of other miracles like the prophets before, however, their effects were basically limited to the people of his time, like the miracles of the earlier prophets.
For if a Jew was asked to show us, the staff of Moses, which turn into a snake,
all Christians were asked to show the land man
who was made to walk, they couldn't.
Similarly, a lot split the moon into two halves upon his tribes, request for a sign of runza salams tribe asked him to show us a sign that you are a prophet, give us some proof here, physical proof, so a lot split the moon, with the halves
going to either side of the horizon, in front of their eyes.
he also lost my dollar also caused water to pour from between the fingers of the profits or sell them. On one occasion, when he and his companions were short of water, he put his hands, water flowed from between his fingers into
a basin, which allowed his companions to use for drinking and for making ablution for prayer. Likewise, Allah caused pebbles and rocks to greet Prophet Muhammad salsa, with salaams Thanks a lot, Salaam Alaikum. And people heard it.
This is only a few of a number of other miracles was the promised land
like the previous Miss miracles of the previous prophets, if we were asked
to show us the rocks that gave salaams to the prophet SAW sanlam
nor would we hear them giving salaams
or the water which came from between the fingers of the province on summer or the morning, half, of course, people made up a story that when
Armstrong went to the moon, first man on the moon, that
he saw the split
in the moon, and he converted to Islam, but it's not true.
I know many of you heard it and
stories spread like wildfire became viral in those days.
Viral just made widespread.
And it's not like anything today. But
virtually everybody heard that. And people many people believe that I already do, but I rejected it because I you know, I liked science. I was a science student in my bachelor's, first bachelor's I I started
Did in biochemistry, so studied physics and all these other so I knew there is no No, no, there is no split Mark lying on the moon, which divides the moon in half, not nonsense.
So I didn't accept it. So the point is that
they these could not be brought as evidence
of the provinces or lands Prophethood anymore than the miracles of Prophet Jesus or Moses and other prophets could be brought.
The items, on the other hand,
had an affinity and a love
Though they didn't write, memorized,
and they took great pride in their oratory and literary skills, all from memory.
yearly contests were held in fairs like Data Archive,
in which many lines of speeches and poetry were recited publicly, from the memories of the reciters. The poets and the writers are.
What would we call them? Not really writers, they're
Their language had reached its peak of linguistic development and eloquence.
That is, it was considered the highest quality a human being could possess.
The greatest among them were those who were literary giants. In fact, the seven most famous poems were so revered, that they were etched in gold and hung in the Kaaba
or on the Kaaba for solemn adoration.
Consequently, Allah revealed to his last prophet a scripture, beginning in some parts with unintelligible letters like I left me or cough, or noon, tantalizing the Arab mind, in a challenge, saying to them from these simple letters, which you combine to form your daily conversations, as well as your great works of prose and poetry, is formed a book whose shortest chapter does not exceed three lines, yet you cannot imitate it, no matter how hard you try.
That's a great greatest miracle of the last prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was none other than the Quran itself. As the prophesied, Solomon stated, all prophets were given something which would cause their people to believe in them mominul ambia Nabeel Yun, ill or appear my Miss Lou and Elaine Basha.
The thing which I was given, is none other than a revelation the Quran, which Allah revealed to me.
That's the Quran was the main miracle given to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to prove that he was in fact a true prophet of Allah, and not an imposter.
So the Quran had to be preserved and saved from any change. In order to prove to the later generations my problem whose asylum is the last of the messengers non coming after. There's no more proofs can be brought to this had to be approved in and of itself.
So it had to be saved in order to prove to the later generations that Muhammad wa sallam was really the last prophet of God.
All of the false prophets, who came after Prophet Muhammad's as alum
brought books like Mirza Ghulam Ahmed of the qadiani, af maddies mirissa Hussain, Ali newari, Bala,
his book Kitab, and up to this,
Guru Nanak, etc.
which they claim to be revealed to them by Allah, but none of them have the miraculous ability.
To be memorized by millions, nor have they improved on the message of the Quran, and furthermore, none of them have been accepted as the highest standard of literature in their lands.
Thus, the significance of the current preservation is that Islam was kept in its original purity because of it. humanity can always return to the sources of Islam, no matter what people have added,
or forgotten in time,
all of the essential principles of Islam are found in the Quran.
Consequently, the preservation of the Quran meant the preservation of Islam in its original, final form.
The loss of the gospel of Jesus means that Christians can never return to the true teachings of Prophet Jesus, except by accepting Islam. Similarly, the original Torah was lost. When Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem, was totally destroyed in 586 BC, the by the army of the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar. Second
fact means that the Jews cannot return to the pure teachings of Prophet Moses, except by following Islam.
It is only in Islam, that the pure teachings of all of the prophets of God have been completely preserved without any change in the least. That is why a lot said in the Quran, in the Drina in the law he is
indeed the only acceptable religion to a law is Islam.
Moving on now to the application of the Divine Names
bill McCall's four principles, provides the framework. The first of those principles was to adopt, where applicable
to adopt the names where they're applicable.
application of these two Divine Names and Hatfield and Hatfield is possible by becoming guardians of Islam. We cannot be guardians of the universe, guardians of nature, guardians of
the solar system, our planet? Not really I mean, we can try to look after it properly, etc. But being guidance No, because there's so much which is outside of our control.
So, our option, our other option, to become a father of half a dean is to become guardians of Islam, through learning it exactly as it was revealed to Prophet Muhammad wa salam, and conveyed and explained by his companions, and their students, known as the Tabby rune, and the students of the Tabby rune,
known as the tabular, tabular in
reason why these three generations are singled out,
is because the Prophet Muhammad Rasul Allah Himself, gave them this special status
had a nasty Apparently, he said,
some melody in a aluna home, some Medina yellow now
the people of my generation are the best, then those who follow them, then those who follow them.
So this is not just an arbitrary
selection. And it's natural also, that those people who are around the Prophet is as pleasant as in the past upon him.
They are going to have the most accurate picture of Islam. They saw the prophet SAW Salaam live Islam.
Also, their students who didn't see the prophet SAW Salah, but many of them were from that same era, but we don't call them Sahaba unless they have seen the profit monsters themselves.
So those people that generation
our next closest those who studied under the sahab
and those who studied under them,
those again, that's the third generation, they would be closest they were just one generation between them. And our generation those days was like 50 years, if you reach 50 year old, so
it was like,
the point is that they were so close to the generation of the prophet may God's peace and blessings be upon him, that that message which the prophets Allah clarified and handed off to his companions, who handed off to his students,
that message would still be fresh.
So it's natural that they would be the best to preserve it.
So they were the first
generations of Guardians of Islam.
We on the other hand,
we can guide Islam by teaching it, learning it and teaching it to others.
The prophets are seldom
quoted as saying hydrocal Manta allemaal Khurana allameh. The best of you are those who learn the Quran and teach to others.
Allah has preserved the Quran from any change in the list. And the core pillars of Islam, Salah, fasting,
zakka, etc. All of these,
along with the pillars of faith
have remained unchanged over the 1400 years. They were in the Quran, the Quran wasn't changed.
So generation after generation people continually took from that preserved source.
They correct understanding of Islam preserving it. Of course, some people did deviate etc. But they couldn't establish the deviation from the grind this was taken from
customs, traditions and culture etc.
So it is under the umbrella
of the Quran that Islam is guided.
However, the meaning of this authentic hadith, hydro command Allah moko Anwar Lama has been changed in practice, to hydro command allemaal. Khurana.
Sorry, credo command hospital Khurana for allameh. They've changed it into that.
What is that? The best of you are those who memorize the Quran and teach it to others. That's what it has become.
So much emphasis has been placed on the memorization of Quran that children have been beaten to death by their parents for not memorizing portions assigned to them by the Quranic teachers.
However, if they're not beaten to death by their parents, how many of them are bitten by the Quranic teachers,
in schools all across the Muslim Ummah, wherever the Muslims are, they set up, you know, my dresses, you know,
children grow up abused by the granting teachers of our time. And of course, this abuse is
not from Islam. It's from shaytaan.
Jadon put this idea that you can't learn the iron without a stick, and this has become the model and the emblem of Quranic teachers of our times.
May Allah protect us and guide them and protect our children.
So the Hadith, it spoke about learning the Quran,
not memorizing it. Specifically, though memorization is a part of learning. It wasn't the be all and end all of learning. In fact, the companions noted that one who memorize the whole of Surah Al Baqarah,
which is the second chapter
The Koran and the longest chapter of God
was given the title of halfhill. Among them, they used to call the one would memorize the Baccarat Surah Baqarah. Half is
today if that title is given to anyone who hasn't completed the memorization of the whole crown, from fire to happiness, people will get upset and say that we're debasing the title half is.
However, as the companions mentioned,
by the law,
they used to learn the Quran 10 verses at a time. And they wouldn't proceed to another 10 verses until they had fully understood the first 10 and try to implement them. They said we used to learn knowledge and practice at the same time.
We also can be happy in profile guardians protectors.
By guarding our flock we know the well known Hadith the Prophet Solomon said
for all those who have been put in charge of will be questioned on the Day of Judgment we will be asked about this responsibility. He said Allah cool lucam Brian
O'Connor comas all on Android at all of you are shepherds. And all of you are responsible for your flocks. So we guide Islam by learning and teaching it to those whom we are in charge of. So as a father, you have the responsibility of establishing Islam in your home. As a mother, you have the responsibility of stablishing Islam with your children
with the home environment, etc.
When the process stops, the Islam of the people deteriorates and is replaced by customs and traditions from the past or by the cultures of nations that dominated and subjugated us.
We also guide Islam by guarding our faculties, Allah has given us faculties to function in this world and to benefit from.
However, he has also given us rules to govern how we function and benefit from this world using our faculties. Consequently, we are and will be held responsible for how we use our faculties, as Allah has said in the summer, one bizarre while for other kulula eco Cana and who must
surely this site to hearing the site and the heart, each of these will be called to account.
So if we guide our faculties, sight, hearing, touch, taste, etc. Our limbs without our limbs, tongue, hands, legs, private parts,
and our earning from anything haram etc. Ensure that it's allowed our marriages
religious or religiosity as opposed to beauty, wealth, lineage, etc.
From what is displeasing to Allah regard them all of these from what is displeasing to Allah, He will protect them from loss and protect our souls and our bodies from destruction. Instead, he will grant us success wherever we go. A law of praise in the Quran, those who guard is Sharia, by using their faculties properly saying, well haffi Luna and then for duty law, or by Sharon macmini, and those who guard the limits of Allah announced glad tidings to such believers.
We protect Islam by protecting our prayers. The greatest religious duty which allies instructed us to carefully guard
Allah said in the crime half adieu Allah salatu wa Salatu star, guard your prayers and especially your middle prayer. When done properly, our prayers are supposed to prevent us from sins.
Any race since that is one of the primary reason why they were prescribed in the Salah, tanha and in foshay. Well Moncure indeed, prayer prevents evil speech and evil deeds.
Consequently, when prayers become a fitness workout promises, and I'm dubbed them no prayer, as he did for the companion, whom he told three times to go back and repeat this prayer, until the combine and gave up and as promised as a lamb eventually, how to teach, to teach him how to pray.
So, we protect this Allah by doing it as it was prescribed. And the better we can do it,
the greater is our protection of it, and the greater our reward.
On the other hand,
and abuse of the name can be found in a number of texts, which invite Muslims and others to recite the names, set numbers of times, on set days or whatever. An example of that
application of the name
and other Divine Names can be found at the website. www. The only coryon.com
where it states I will have is the preserver one who recites this name 16 times each day will be protected against calamities.
No one but the last prophets was Allah has the authority to make such a statement. Because such information could only be known by revelation is not something which a person can compute or calculate based on this data the other which is why
many who pass on such false information usually claimed that they got it from their shapes, their peers, their spiritual guides and leaders they attributed to others
and those who they attributed to attributed to other results. And eventually when you try to track these things down, you'll finally ends up with somebody who says, a chef from of the shapes of the chef's of the chef's divinely said, I heard it in a dream. Someone came to me in a dream and told me this or others claim I met another
property name is really unhackable. Everybody knows him as Heather alpha that
They have turned and turned alcohol into the mill melchers dick
of the Bible, one without beginning of days or ending up this
eternal existence been given.
But these are all lies anyway, only to impress the ignorant and the gullible.
However, the promises on them did inform us about different supplications and phrases of remembrance, that one who recites them would be protected, rewarded or have their sins removed. However, we have low examples of the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim making such claims by themselves, they could they go to the process and then they pass that information on.
Consequently, making such pronouncements according to the Sharia, is considered to be with
heresy or religious innovation, which the prophet SAW Selim says, leads to the Hellfire because it's ultimately from Satan, who only intends misguidance for creation, whether humans or the jinn.
The previously mentioned website you will find that those who set it up have made similar claims for each and every one of the names in their list of 99 names.
The second principle of
Even Nepal, is to confirm were unique, and inapplicable. These two Divine Names are hafeez. Another half is, in their infinite sense cannot be applied by human beings to themselves. However, they both have human dimensions for application. As previously pointed out.
In this context, we can apply these names by confirming their uniqueness to a law and by rejecting any attempts to give them to human beings.
Consequently, the believers are obliged to reject any claims made by those among the Shiites or the Sophists, who claim that the Imams or the saints have control over the universe.
Whether it's in demand cool man, his book, The Islamic Revolution,
but how Kumar Islami
he claimed that the spiritual status of the Imam is the universal dive divined by surrency. That is something mentioned by the amounts peace be upon them is his words. It is a Vijay Vijay currency pertaining to the whole of creation, by virtue of which all the atoms of creation of the universe humble themselves before the holder of this authority
collini in his book was Sunil caffee, which is their
most authentic book.
He wrote a chapter which he entitled all the earth is owned by the Imam.
And he mentioned in there a narration by Abu Basir
that Abu Abdullah, this is a mom Jaffer saw that said, Did you know that this and the next world are owned by the Imam
who may place it anywhere he likes and granted to anyone he chooses.
So behind Allah,
we have to reject this, this is part of our
formation of the uniqueness of this qualities that are found in these names of Allah.
Unique only to Allah, we have to reject it, when it's given to a lot of creatures.
The third principle is to find hope, where there is progress.
The names are half is and I'll hafeez both contain promises, which alarm makes to his creatures, that he will protect them as the guardian. However, that protection is conditional and not automatic. I mean, there is an automatic sense that Allah you know, protects and guards all of his creation. But on an individual level,
the province is clarified that we need to protect what is the laws in order for a lot to protect and guide us. He said, for the law, the hug,
guide Allah and He will guide you.
The progress on sanlam instructed us to guide ourselves by guarding a laws instructions.
And if we do so, Allah will guard us from the hellfire. Our guardianship begins with the religion itself begins with guardianship of Islam.
And perhaps the greatest religious concept that Muslims are required to safeguard and preserve of the rights of a law is Tao hate.
All the prophets of Allah was sent.
And all the books of revelation were revealed primarily to garden preserve our heat,
the unique unity of a law to make that clear to humankind. Whoever predicts it in this world the law will protect them from punishment on the Day of Judgment. And he or she will have a promise from a law to be put in paradise. Which is why the promises are long said man call Allah Allah, Allah Allah, the halogen wherever it says there is no god
worthy of worship but Allah will enter Paradise. Where we live is this declaration of faith, after saying it is promised paradise to limit, one must guard all of its conditions by fulfilling them to the last letter. The declaration of faith is not just a phrase to be said repeatedly, but a spiritual commitment to live by. It involves believing and worshiping a law alone as the one and only true God, and following Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam as the last messenger of a law to humanity.
The law stated in the Koran, that whoever obeys the messenger has obeyed the law, my uterus soon cuddapah law.
guidance ship with a law of promises is for those who guide the main elements and Pillars of Islam. And the most important
is tawheed itself.
We don't have the process and I'm saying that whoever
prays will enter Paradise, or whoever fast will enter Paradise.
by themselves, no
one does all of this Yes.
But we do have him saying whoever says lilan a lot and that's the first pillar of Islam will enter Paradise.
if we move on to the last of the principles, having fear where there's a warning
both of these Divine Names and half is and I'll have is contained subtle warnings of the consequences of not guarding what we have been instructed to guard.
In the Quran, Allah sometimes enunciate the warnings clearly, as in the case of the duty to safeguard our prayers.
To pray negligently is to lose the promised rewards a regular Salah the ratio of sins, etc, etc.
Furthermore, a lot ominously warns those who neglect the prayer of an evil and
often embody him colorful. Dar salam,
what was terbaru I showered for Sophia call Hi.
There came after them successors who neglected prayer and pursued desires. So there were so they are going to meet evil.
Consequently, we should seriously fear the war and evil consequences, which are many for not guarding the Pillars of Islam properly. Baraka law of equal
now we'll close calling on a law
using these Divine Names or law. Yeah, half. Yeah. Javi
played with you to help us guide our faith
and our good deeds from laziness, distraction and doubt.
Yeah, have it. We ask you to strengthen the resolve of the oma to protect our religion and convey it to the world through our deeds. And not just our words. Yeah, Harvey is
we ask you, to plead with you,
to protect us from misguidance. From disobedience,
from weakness of faith
and all that should cause us to disobey.
not maintain the limits that you have set, we ask you to help us.
our session, Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh capital and will now shift to the third portion of our
third portion of our program.
Our class, which is
our questions and answers, q&a.
You and a
share is the iOS certificate accepted under the Australian qualifications network.
To be honest, I don't know.
We have got institutional accreditation from the Gambian government
and from the Somali government.
We are finishing off
for the Gambian
accreditation body called NACA
a couple of months it should be finally completed.
we can only assume that those Gambians who graduated from institutions in the Gambia
to study in Australia.
They were accepted and they
were engaged in study there graduated etc.
We can only assume
having the same qualifications as that
institution, the primary institution of the Gambia, University of the Gambia,
since those accreditation those documents are accepted from them, they should be accepted from us. But
agencies have their own way of dealing with things
anything is possible
question from Aham Neff, Shan ryanne Adi,
is it permissible to drink water from the water bottle of a non Muslim? Absolutely permissible.
Question from Latifah?
Yes. I'm confused about the Jews. Where is their origin?
From what I know there
is the descendants they from what I know is that they are the descendants of Prophet Abraham and Mama Sarah.
Where were they living at that particular time?
This is getting into ancient history
about which we are uncertain.
this question seems to be related to the Jewish current claim that what we know as Palestine was always theirs had been given to them property ram etc. Was there well, mustard is Arkansas is in Palestine.
And we know that mustard Lhasa was built by Prophet Abraham, Abraham.
So there is an element of truth there.
From that perspective, but the point is that
from the sons of Prophet Abraham, we have
two lines, one
according to Muslim belief,
ended up in Makkah.
Right prophet Ishmael at or is smiling Arabic
and the other
ended up in Egypt.
And toward different parts of the world, they also even went down to Ethiopia. Ethiopian Jews.
that is their father. His heart
is the father
And mixed up with this one here between his heart and his smile. I'm used to talking about this smile all the time. So yeah, it's my is the father of the came down to the prophet SAW Solomon slam and NACA, whereas Isaac

Shaheen Han, I am
living in India. But I never found a true Muslim there
were to find people who talk about the in Islam
to cut 200 million Muslims in India,
I can't believe that you didn't find a single true Muslim there.
I think maybe you have a very extremist view to be able to say that. Because every Muslim community around the world has within them true Muslims. There are many Muslims who we could call fake Muslims. We're not really practicing Islam. It's just culture and tradition and customs and things like this. But there is always amongst them wherever you go. Some true Muslims who are following the Quran and following some
questions from Instagram.
We don't have any questions for Mr. Graham at the moment but
perhaps we'll have some soon.
Smile be happy says May I ask?
Is it only a thing and believing
that Lyla holla led by law or do we have to say and believe
nilan Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah.
Those people who don't have information about Prophet Muhammad SAW Allah de se Lai La La law, and they only worship a law alone, then Allah can accept them.
Laila and Allah for the people who are following Jesus, following Moses following Abraham follow. That was sufficient. So that's the core of
the declaration of faith.
That's why the prophet SAW seven in South said manakala Lyla, la dalla Jana.
Whoever says it
later generations up to our times and beyond.
Because the only way to say it meaningfully is to say it based on what is coming from Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. So, it's like, one implies the other.
And there are other conditions that have to be considered to you know, what if you said it insincerely he didn't believe it. You just said it, is I'm going to put you in jail now. Know?
What if you said it?
Now the question of insincerely, but you didn't even know what it meant. Is that going to put you in Jannah? No.
So there are factors that have to be kept in mind.
Which many are related to saying it knowing what you're saying sincerely, etc. You know, otherwise it will be of no benefit.
Sister, asthma, she asked how many names will be covered in the series 99 plus 10 or 15. fake names are names which are not accepted as names of a lot, but they're widely held to be and people name themselves and their children. According to them, we'll have a look at those two, some of those.
But in this series, and this month, month of
showerwall, we hope to finish another 33 which will take us up to 66. And in the Gada, the month following show while we hope to do the remaining 33, which will take us up to 99.
From our students in the Instagram platform,
Jeff, please talk about subjects. So how is it to be done? Please clarify?
Well, I think this was covered
in the previous name, it's there in
a B Phillips
under the name
Chaka Chaka, these two names, you will find the details there.
But just a quick and quick passing within just say that it can be done anywhere.
according to sudo that we know
saying sir, behind neurobiol Allah
can be done.
And you can stay in that position. As you reflect on the good the law has
put in your life. Recent good focusing on that. Thinking about it, you didn't find a law and you got it for not suppose so. Oh, sorry. I don't know. Somehow I heard salloway. Sugar,
sugar. Sorry, sorry, sorry.
My apologies. said that. So
this is at the end of prayer. I will have made a mistake in the prayer mistake which can be
covered by making sense that because there's some mistakes, you know, you left out rocor
you have to do that whole rock out over again.
No, those those kinds of mistakes which
cancel the validity of a given rock if they were prayer, you have to replace with another rocker. But if it's something small, you started to get up and you caught yourself in like lockdown.
started you raised your hands to go down into Procore when you hadn't decided something after a party
and you remember it. So you stopped yourself and you decided what was to come after.
You know this mistakes of this nature.
In such cases
before test limbs after you finished making the childhood
you can say Allahu Akbar, make prostration sit up again, low awkward set backup. Low awkward, sit back down again. And log welcome back up again. and complete your prayer that point with Catholics or it can be done after testing you finish your prayer with the taskings. Then you before getting up and running away you make your frustrations again to prostrations for forgetfulness in the prayer.
Or I should mention the probably more common mistake that people make is, you know, you think you did only three rocker
though you're at the end of the press, do you think you've left out a rocker?
So in that case, you go back, you add another aka and then you made the circle the end there
so all versions of forgetfulness in the prayer this can be you have to bring what was missed out, and then you make to do the sour at the end.
from asthma, how many names Oh, we did that already?
Malik. What does it mean that Allah has a hand or a face? Is it like human or above all this above all of this sound like a human being? You know, like the Mormons, they believe God is just a big guy in the sky. Huge.
From my Instagram, we have something
Do you have any suggestions on how to fully clear the mind during prayer?
How to fully clear the mind Well,
it starts from Voodoo, if you want to fully clear mind and you have to start with Voodoo with your Bismillah to make the will do thinking about what you're doing the sins stripping off your limbs reflecting to complete that we'll do of reflection
when you finish that will do a reflection then you make your soul now prayers before you're formed. That further distances you from your current thoughts
are on you.
Then after that, you stand up for your farm
then your mind has now been put in a clear space and you have the chance for Salah without the confusion of salah and the dunya Crowder's
why they come Salaam do women have to cover their feet, the skirt and socks are our socks sufficient
wearing socks, not sufficient wearing socks doesn't cover our in Syria, women, they wear skirts, to their knees, and they were, you know, dark stockings underneath. It's come up, they walk around like that. And that's common in some parts of Syria, not saying all Syrian women are like that.
So that's talking as you're not going to accept that. Why because it's showing the shape of the length. Right. So similarly, you know, you're not going to accept a woman who is wearing spandex completely, she says I'm covered. I've got a scarf on my head and then spandex, you can see my my skin anywhere.
it's being shown. So similarly your feet, putting socks on still is showing the shape of the feet. So that's a piece of it. Now you can go smaller go bigger and bigger and bigger. So no, it should be your garment that you're praying and should come down and reach the floor covering the tops of your feet.
All you put on an outer garment and a buyer
which comes down and covers the tops of your feet.
Yeah, something from
our Instagram students followers
even at the Salaam. They said that when the hour is near the Quran will be forgotten. My question in this point is how do we pray? Because when we pray, we read the Quran while praying.
The Quran will be forgotten.
What I recall amongst the science of the last day is that the Quranic texts
the the Quran which is written in it will be lifted up
so the text will become black
and this is the time when
The only people left
could be the evil buttons.
Plus taking the soul of the believers.
and all left in the world
will be equal.
You have something?
Do we need witnesses when they have been set up?
Well, witnesses should be
They should be informed the time when it took place confirmed.
Especially when you're doing
the lock heard the voice in courts, Muslim courts, etc.
ruining for cleaning dishes that a dog has eaten from is to wash them seven times, one with dirt or Earth.
But what defines one washing? Does it mean to wipe it once you wash it once water has gone over it
one time, whether you use a cloth to do it long with it or just or a brush or whatever else, water has gone over it. That's the washing.
And then you use earth as a part of the cleaning process.
The last time
from Instagram. Is there any difference between llamas of men and women
there's no difference between the prayer of the men and women.
basic description is the same. And Sahabi out female companions of the Prophet SAW them were described as praying just like the men.
There is one narration with a processor and came across one of the women praying sort of spread out with her arms and she told her to Okay, you know
crowdin a bit more.
But we don't look at that as the general description of prayer that she should be.
You know, because there's some schools that's what it's become that the woman is supposed to, you know
enclose herself, basically, you know,
to such a degree that her movements are very restricted and now these are extremes in general there's no real evidence for these extremes.
So many evidence of the process on the brain and saying prayers you saw me pray
You have either problems that's insane mustard in her are better off this
is 40 years in its construction.
Explain how so if Prophet Abraham
said a man was longer than 40 years.
Well, what is
the 40 years? Now I'm not even familiar with this study. So I really can't if it's authentic hadith or what, again, really speak about it.
So a woman allowed to do business being an Indian, this is often said not to do so. But can we do as well. Women in the process allowance time, they work not just in the home. They worked in the marketplace. You know, the incidents that happened in the marketplace recorded from this year and the process of them that
the some of them were harassed and you know, Muslims had to lay down
yeah, they work outside of the home. That's permissible, then and now.
I have this 18 month old baby, I got pregnant again.
I avoided my second child in a hurry without any thinking.
Is it a big sin? For Allah forgive me?
Well, it depends if the abortion took place,
you know, immediately after
the early days, especially maximum being
the end of the fourth month was done before that, generally speaking, this is it's mcru disliked.
Some scholars Oh, that is also Haram, forbidden.
Abortion is completely not allowed. whereas others hold that for different reasons. If a woman gets raped and things like this, it's allowed her to
abort if he does work, the child, the early stages, etc.
So the differences among them with disregard, but the bottom line is that at least from the life perspective, you know, when the soul goes into the child at the end of the fourth month, this is definitely a red line that, you know, if you did do abortion at that point, after that point, then you're taking a human life. Before that point, you're taking a life living creature, but it's not considered human life unless the soul goes into it. So, these are considerations that are
you know what, what sounds most correct to you, or you can go with
so if you did it in the early stages, first week, whatever insha Allah there is nothing against you.
Malik asks, What is the verse and we are closer to you? to him? That's the human being than their juggler vein. What does it mean? Now this is like a simile
because it implies that there is nothing between you and Allah
that He hears sees,
is aware of everything about you. So it's a simile of
laws or for our laws closeness to human beings

is this right to drink water?
with left hand if we take support of investment, right time when we drink water, is it lighter? No, it is not just practice of people, they hold the glass in their right hand and they put their underneath and they're drinking like this. She says that you're not drinking with your right hand. He moves your hand away. The glass is still there. You're drinking with your left hand.
That's the that's the reality. Now this is only symbolic some people will just put a finger
somehow making it okay to drink with the left hand this is from shade balm. No shutdown has deluded people thinking that you can
make it okay you know make drinking with the left hand which you probably saw Salah was openly forbidden. You can make it okay by other things.
Using your finger using the base of your hand, you know, whatever could be on your right elbow, whatever. All of it is nonsense. And not acceptable.
Okay, Sharla we'll be closing out the session now.
