al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim. Allah Allah was happy woman is standing there be so nutty in Iowa Dean

00:05:22--> 00:05:35

operates due to a law and we allow Peace and blessings beyond the last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and and all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.

00:05:36--> 00:05:39

Today's session is number 32.

00:05:41--> 00:05:45

And in it we're looking at the name Elmo plate,

00:05:46--> 00:05:50

which is the 47th name in our series of 99.

00:05:51--> 00:05:58

And it is translated generally as the nourisher and the Sustainer.

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

It is only mentioned once in the Quran.

00:06:05--> 00:06:15

What can Allahu Allah coolessay in Makita and Allah is the preserver of all things.

00:06:17--> 00:06:22

linguistically, the name Elmo, Kate comes from the trilateral route

00:06:24--> 00:06:27

off Wow. And

00:06:29--> 00:06:37

it is derived from the verbal noun, quote, cotton, which means sustenance.

00:06:39--> 00:06:47

It has five basic meanings. The first meaning is to supply, maintain and sustain.

00:06:48--> 00:06:56

The second meaning is to feed and nourish. The third is to keep preserve and guard.

00:06:57--> 00:07:01

The fourth is to witness observe and watch over

00:07:02--> 00:07:09

and the fifth is to be able to do anything like elk or deer and elk or deer.

00:07:12--> 00:07:19

This route appears twice in the Koran in two derived forms.

00:07:21--> 00:07:34

Examples of these forms are Aqua Taha aquata its subs sustenance and more Payton, a keeper

00:07:36--> 00:07:37


00:07:38--> 00:07:55

when it comes to Allah, the meaning of this Divine Name, Alamo pit, is virtually the same as Al halfhill and Al Hafiz the preserver, according to imaam Zoo judge,

00:07:56--> 00:08:23

with the added dimension of being the one who gives everything nourishment, according to its needs, like our rezac and our rajdip. The provider that we've taken before all living creatures are entitled and need some form or another of sustenance and nourishment.

00:08:24--> 00:08:45

Living bodies need food and drink, to survive, grow and replicate. souls and minds need to be nourished by knowledge. And even the angels while not needing food and drink are nourished by the words of glorification of Allah, and that Tally.

00:08:49--> 00:08:59

Almighty Allah nourishes all of his creatures, he preserves them looks out for them is aware of their different circumstances.

00:09:02--> 00:09:12

In that way, this Divine Name and locate includes all the Divine Names found in the remaining 99 names.

00:09:13--> 00:09:20

Alright contains all the divine attributes. The attributes which come from the names,

00:09:21--> 00:09:39

found in the remaining 99 attributes, it's a comprehensive name. Furthermore, I don't know if it sustains both bodies and souls. And he has taken it upon himself to sustain his whole creation, as he

00:09:41--> 00:09:47

call it, created all things and locate also creates what sustains them

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

sustain sustaining us, while similar to providing for us, as our zap is even more specific

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

Then the attributes of a rasik.

00:10:05--> 00:10:09

While similar, there is a slight difference.

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

He makes accessible, what is necessary for his creatures to survive? And what is the luxury

00:10:19--> 00:10:37

thing gives us what we need to survive until he wills to put an end to our lives. Then he simply withholds what keeps us alive. Elmo crate alone is capable and knowledgeable of everything.

00:10:39--> 00:10:44

Some researchers and compilers have the 99 names chose Alamo leaf

00:10:45--> 00:10:47

instead of Alma Pete

00:10:48--> 00:10:52

Mohave is interpreted as meaning they help her

00:10:53--> 00:11:01

as he helps his creatures among the jinn and human beings, as well as animals in their times of difficulty.

00:11:03--> 00:11:07

Whenever they call out to Him, He answers them and saves them

00:11:09--> 00:11:10

is also

00:11:12--> 00:11:15

carrying the meaning of the responder.

00:11:17--> 00:11:23

The one who responds, and the one who is called upon for help.

00:11:25--> 00:11:32

This attribute is different from responding as the author hoffa

00:11:33--> 00:11:37

refers to actions, while is the Java

00:11:38--> 00:12:00

responding refers to words, there is an overlapping here, however, they may be used interchangeably. And people do use them in that way, if no Chi m said, is the helper of all his creatures, and he responds to those who are desperate.

00:12:01--> 00:12:04

That's the sense of unbelief

00:12:09--> 00:12:11

in terms of the application

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

of his name,

00:12:15--> 00:12:18

in accordance with immune battles four principles,

00:12:19--> 00:13:16

we begin with the first principle of adapting or adopting where the name is applicable. This Divine Name of it may be adopted by providing nourishment and sustenance for a lot of creatures on a human scale within our spheres of influence. This is a praiseworthy moral characteristic, promoted strongly by Islamic teachings, for example, in order to stress the importance of care, and compassion for all of us creatures, the promises are land related for us a story, an incident, which took place in the distant past. He said, while a past prostitute from the tribe of Israel, venue is Ryan was walking, she passed by a weld and drank some water from it.

00:13:17--> 00:13:39

While doing this, she saw a dog panting and licking the earth near the well, due to its extreme thirst. The prostitute then went back to the well filled her pouch with water and fed the dog in order to quench his thirst. So Allah forgave her sins.

00:13:41--> 00:14:10

On another occasion, when the prophet SAW Selim related a similar story about a man who did something quite similar, the companions asked them or messenger of Allah, is there a reward for being charitable? Even to animals? to promise Our solemn replied Yes, for every warm blooded creature, there is a reward of charity shown towards it.

00:14:12--> 00:14:19

So on one hand, these narrations also emphasize that when it comes to being charitable,

00:14:21--> 00:14:44

by providing sustenance and nourishment, we should not consider any good deed too small to matter. A lot of repeat, the provider sustains all of its features, no matter how small or how big, our week out, or how powerful or how insignificant or important

00:14:45--> 00:14:47

in order to stress this point,

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

the prophet SAW Selim was quoted by a bizarre as saying, Latta Quran nominal ma who fish a

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

not distain a

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

Good Deed, no matter how small it may seem

00:15:05--> 00:15:09

hollow and telco a Hawker be watching talk.

00:15:10--> 00:15:19

Even if it is only you're meeting your Muslim brother or sister with a cheerful face.

00:15:20--> 00:15:22

On the other hand

00:15:24--> 00:15:38

with such a great reward for providing sustenance to animals, how much greater would it be for providing for our fellow human beings, whether the sustenance be physical or spiritual.

00:15:39--> 00:15:51

So these narrations indirectly invite us to convey the spiritual sustenance needed by all humankind by spreading the correct message of Islam.

00:15:53--> 00:16:00

Of course, being charitable in general, is an application of the Divine Name advocate.

00:16:02--> 00:16:13

And it also involves as being charitable, by going out of our way to help others, whether fellow human beings or animals.

00:16:14--> 00:16:32

Furthermore, our giving of charity should not be ritualistic, limited only to Ramadan. It is true that the prophet SAW Salem was most charitable in Ramadan, but it was also extremely charitable all year round.

00:16:33--> 00:16:45

We should always remember that incredible piece of prophetic advice as sadakazu to fit on hottie gamma youth fit on my own now.

00:16:46--> 00:16:52

Charity obliterates sins, the way water extinguishes fire.

00:16:53--> 00:16:58

Although in the case of a law, he doesn't benefit from

00:16:59--> 00:17:07

being charitable for human beings and the jinn charity benefits the giver even more than the receiver

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

of the law binominal reported that while the Messenger of Allah was sitting on the pulpit and talking about the importance of sadaqa

00:17:19--> 00:17:22

and the abstention from begging, he said,

00:17:23--> 00:17:27

the upper hand is better than the lower hand

00:17:28--> 00:17:35

the upper being the one which bestows and the lower the one which begs.

00:17:38--> 00:17:41

So, we are encouraged.

00:17:43--> 00:17:47

By applying this name, I noted

00:17:48--> 00:17:51

through being charitable,

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

to find ways and means

00:17:55--> 00:17:57

and there are no end.

00:17:58--> 00:18:07

There are countless ways and means that we can utilize to be charitable,

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

and apply this Divine Name

00:18:12--> 00:18:24

in terms of confirming where the name is unique and inapplicable, which is Principle number two of event but Paul's four principles.

00:18:26--> 00:18:45

We do so by recognizing a law the nourisher special provision in each and every aspect of our lives. We confirm his divine name. However, we should also strongly and righteously reject any attempts to assign to any human beings.

00:18:46--> 00:18:52

Law Adam opiods divine act of distribution of provisions to his creatures.

00:18:54--> 00:19:01

Whether this divine attribute is given to Sufi saints, or to Shiite infallible imams.

00:19:02--> 00:19:06

Such an assignment is pure worship and idolatry.

00:19:08--> 00:19:12

The classical example of this type of shirk can be found

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

regardless regarding an 18th century Moroccan Sufi chef named the bar

00:19:22--> 00:19:23

who died

00:19:24--> 00:19:27

in the 18th century

00:19:28--> 00:19:35

was quoted by one of his followers is saying, I once witnessed a saint a winning

00:19:36--> 00:19:56

reach such a high station that he witnessed all intelligent and unintelligent creative beings, wild animals, insects, the heavens, and it stars the earth, and the globe of the entire world, gained its sustenance from him

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

went on to say

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

He heard all of their sounds and conversations in a single instant. And he,

00:20:08--> 00:20:11

the chef gave each

00:20:13--> 00:20:14

what they needed

00:20:15--> 00:20:22

and what was best suited for them. This is Elmo Pete, this is not a chef.

00:20:23--> 00:20:30

And he did so according to the bar without being distracted by one from another.

00:20:32--> 00:20:49

such claims are preposterous and heretic and should be soundly rejected by all those who have understood this Divine Name of Allah and Bukit, and its attributes of being the Sustainer nurture and preserver.

00:20:50--> 00:21:05

These divine attributes should be given exclusively to Allah alone, without any partners in his divinity, to assign them to a last creation is open ship, without a shadow of a doubt.

00:21:07--> 00:21:18

Consequently, confirmation of the uniqueness of this attribute, this divine attribute requires us to reject all such claims, and those who make them.

00:21:20--> 00:21:24

The third principle of finding hope, where there is a promise

00:21:25--> 00:21:40

can be seen in the fact that this Divine Name or locate contains a huge divine promise that whatever sustenance we need, will ultimately be provided for by Allah.

00:21:42--> 00:21:47

This reminder provides a solid foundation for patients in our times of need.

00:21:49--> 00:22:19

It is also a strong reminder for us not to despair, of receiving a lot of support at the first sign of failure or delay in the fulfillment of our plans. For a law is the best of planners. Reflecting on this device name should strongly encouraged us from seeking sustenance from haram means and encourage us to remain patient until the halaal options become available.

00:22:21--> 00:22:39

Or even more importantly, we make an effort to find alternative means through community projects, involving the cooperation of some members of the community, if not all,

00:22:42--> 00:22:49

we should always remember that the ends do not justify the means.

00:22:50--> 00:22:55

Although the ends justify the means, for as this phrase

00:22:56--> 00:23:01

is commonly quoted to justify the use of haram means

00:23:02--> 00:23:05

and does not seem to be supported

00:23:06--> 00:23:10

or does seem to be supported by the commonly quoted.

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

Sharia Maxim, necessity makes permissible the forbidden, Allah has a lot to be admired. And

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

yeah, and Mahabharat to be

00:23:33--> 00:23:39

forgotten the Arabic phrase, these logos anyway are often misused.

00:23:40--> 00:23:46

Their use is only justified where human life and limb are threatened.

00:23:50--> 00:23:56

In life threatening situations, the ends and necessity becomes

00:23:57--> 00:23:59

saving a life.

00:24:01--> 00:24:39

In such cases, using whatever means within reason, including the forbidden means to save a life becomes justifiable and permissible. However, these legal Maxim's have to be used very cautiously based on a variety of additional conditions like this, this allowing their use when the harm becomes greater than the benefits. For example, were to save one life involves deliberate loss of two lives or more.

00:24:40--> 00:24:56

On the other hand, focusing on the promise of provision should give us confidence in self restraint and patience for a law to provide for us another way out of our circumstances.

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

As a law said, Oh, man

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

adopted nyege Allahu Maharaja, we are Zuko, who mean hate to lie doesn't

00:25:08--> 00:25:30

make the worker Lala law firm or hospital. Whoever fears Allah, he will find an escape for him, Allah will find an escape for him and provide for him from where he would least expect it. And whoever trusts in a law will find that he a law is sufficient for him.

00:25:33--> 00:26:03

Focusing on the promises of help, nourishment and sustenance in the Divine Name and locate reminds us that this life is just a test and that bad times are inevitable, as a law locates himself said, while another Luana can be a mineral healthy will jewelry, or Napa, slim mineral and wallyworld amphis. What some odd rubbish it is slavery.

00:26:04--> 00:26:18

Surely I will test you with fear, hunger, loss of wealth and life and the fruits of your work. So give glad tidings of Jannah. To those who are patient,

00:26:19--> 00:26:43

all we can do is to pray as a Lord taught us to patiently pray for a lighter trial than given to those who came before us. He taught us saying and Swan Baqarah verse 286, robina will attach Mila Alena is wrong, comma Hamilton who Alan Medina mean tabulator.

00:26:45--> 00:26:50

Lord do not burden us as you burden those before us.

00:26:52--> 00:27:03

And he told us to pray that our burdens will not be too much for us to handle robina wala to hammermill Nirmala Takata Allah Nabi

00:27:05--> 00:27:10

Lord do not burden us with more than we have strength to bear.

00:27:11--> 00:27:40

We pray begging Allah not to overburden us, even though we know that he won't do so, as he already promised us not, that he will not do so saying, law you can live for long enough son in law was Aha. Allah does not burden any soul more than it can bear. That's a lot of promise already.

00:27:41--> 00:27:43

But he still told us

00:27:44--> 00:27:45

to pray.

00:27:48--> 00:27:53

Not to give us burdens, which is too heavy for us to handle.

00:27:54--> 00:27:55

To do so.

00:27:57--> 00:28:11

would be oppression. And Allah also promised His creation, that he would never oppress anyone. Will I ever limit Rob Booker had and your Lord is not oppressed anymore?

00:28:13--> 00:28:18

So why did he teach us to pray in that way, knowing that

00:28:19--> 00:28:21

it could never be the case.

00:28:22--> 00:28:26

praying that Allah doesn't give us a burden too heavy for us to bear.

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

He did so because human nature is such that whenever we are tested, we immediately feel that the test is too much to bear. Regardless of the reality of our circumstance, no matter how great or how small, we always feel this is too much I can do with it. So this becomes a gentle release valve from Alamo pit,

00:28:56--> 00:29:22

protecting us from venting our anger at Allah. Instead, we can vent our wounded feelings in a humble way, instead of an indignant and hearty way, which leads many of us, if not most of us to question allows divine wisdom with questions like, why, why am I being tested?

00:29:23--> 00:29:25

I don't deserve this.

00:29:26--> 00:29:27

Or why me

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

and not someone else. They have done far worse things that I've done.

00:29:35--> 00:29:37

Or why now

00:29:39--> 00:29:48

and not that some other time or why here and not some other place, etc, etc, etc.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

Instead, we just beg Allah to give us the strength to handle the burdens or give us more strength to handle it.

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

Remain respectful and humble before the almighty sustainer.

00:30:09--> 00:30:18

The fourth principle of Ibn batal to have fear where there is a warning

00:30:20--> 00:30:25

there are no obvious warnings in this Divine Name I locate

00:30:27--> 00:30:44

since it is fundamentally a promise, except what may be indirectly found through the prophetic warnings regarding the consequence of sustaining ourselves using haraam means

00:30:46--> 00:30:50

the ends do not justify the means.

00:30:53--> 00:30:56

First, on one occasion,

00:30:58--> 00:31:01

quoted the Quranic verse

00:31:02--> 00:31:08

For those who believe it of the good things that I gave you.

00:31:12--> 00:31:13


00:31:19--> 00:31:34

And then he described a person on a long journey, whose here was disheveled and covered with dust. Who lifted his hands towards the sky saying, You're a baby.

00:31:36--> 00:31:43

Oh my Lord. Yeah, Robbie. Oh, my Lord, but his food was unlawful.

00:31:44--> 00:31:55

His drink was unlawful. His clothes were unlawful, and his nourishment was unlawful, unlawful. So how could his prayers be answered?

00:31:57--> 00:32:07

So in spite of the fact that this traveler had fulfilled all of the major prerequisites for his prayers to be answered,

00:32:08--> 00:32:16

number one prerequisite was being on a journey. Robert Solomon said the prayers of travelers are answered.

00:32:17--> 00:32:30

He said three supplications are answered without doubt. disaggregation of the oppressed is application of the traveler and this obligation of the parent for his or her child.

00:32:34--> 00:32:36

The second prerequisite

00:32:39--> 00:32:43

is here with the shovels, indicating a long journey.

00:32:44--> 00:32:53

The greater the difficulty, the greater the reward is a general principle. As a prophet SAW Solomon said, Indeed greater rewards come

00:32:55--> 00:32:57

with greater trials.

00:32:58--> 00:33:17

Surely, when Allah loves people, he will test them. So whoever is pleased with his tests, or her test, then for him or her his satisfaction, and whoever is angry with them, then for him or her, His laws are off.

00:33:20--> 00:33:27

The third prerequisite dusty here, Indyk indicative also of an arduous journey,

00:33:28--> 00:33:37

difficult journey, more emphasis on the difficulty of his journey, making him more deserving of a greater reward.

00:33:38--> 00:33:40

The fourth be requisites.

00:33:41--> 00:33:44

His hands were raised in prayer.

00:33:45--> 00:33:54

This is the proper nouns and Sunnah for special prayers for the rain, prayer etc. Used to raise his hands in prayer.

00:33:56--> 00:34:00

So man and fallacy related the promises are lump said

00:34:01--> 00:34:15

very a lot is shy. and generous. is shy when a person raises his or her hands in prayer to him to return them away. Empty

00:34:16--> 00:34:17

and disappointed.

00:34:20--> 00:34:22

The fifth condition

00:34:23--> 00:34:27

calling on Allah using his divine name, or Rob

00:34:28--> 00:34:30

oh my lord Jambi

00:34:31--> 00:34:35

as instructed as a law instructed

00:34:36--> 00:34:38

father Oh, who do you

00:34:40--> 00:34:43

call on a law using his names.

00:34:44--> 00:34:47

So his prayers were rejected by a law

00:34:48--> 00:34:54

because the money he earned to buy his food and his drink, his clothes etc. Were Haram.

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

Since it was haram then the food he bought with her

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

became hora and the flesh and blood that grew from the food also became harder. And the clothes that he covered his harem body with were also Haram, because he had bought them with haraam earnings. So his very existence became

00:35:24--> 00:35:29

so much so that it overwhelmed his other good actions.

00:35:30--> 00:35:41

On the other hand, it is likely that his daughters were also not really sincere, you to the level of haraam existence that he reached

00:35:42--> 00:35:43

for perhaps is to us.

00:35:45--> 00:35:54

We're not prayers or repentance, for which any crime or sin may be forgiven, no matter how great

00:35:55--> 00:35:59

or how many times

00:36:01--> 00:36:06

but instead, they were prayers for more of a loss favors.

00:36:08--> 00:36:19

So the lesson we need to learn from that is that Hara means of sustenance, will ultimate ultimately produce her arm and

00:36:22--> 00:36:25

to further illustrate

00:36:28--> 00:36:30

this situation,

00:36:31--> 00:36:37

where instead of being kind and gentle, and helpful,

00:36:39--> 00:36:44

providing sustenance to a lot creatures, one in turn,

00:36:45--> 00:36:46

harms them.

00:36:47--> 00:36:51

Prophet Muhammad SAW Salam had

00:36:52--> 00:36:59

addressed the issue of animal cruelty, or cruelty to animals,

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


00:37:02--> 00:37:03

many of us

00:37:05--> 00:37:08

tend to turn a blind blind eye towards.

00:37:10--> 00:37:15

So even if our kids are harming pets, we buy them pets, cats, dogs, whatever.

00:37:16--> 00:37:22

And they are harming these animals, guinea pigs, etc.

00:37:25--> 00:37:26

We ignore it.

00:37:28--> 00:37:42

In fact, in Islam, it's a very serious matter of the highest order. When Omar quoted the prophet SAW Solomon saying, a woman was sent to the Hellfire because of a cat.

00:37:44--> 00:37:46

She had tied it up until it died,

00:37:47--> 00:37:54

without giving it food, or setting it free to eat from the vermin of the earth.

00:37:56--> 00:38:20

So cruelty to animals, we can see what's enshrined in the Islamic moral code of contact conduct 1400 years ago, as a major sin, and its opposite kindness to animal was divinely declared a highly regarded and greatly rewarded act of charity.

00:38:22--> 00:38:23


00:38:24--> 00:38:27

in concluding our

00:38:29--> 00:38:32

study of the name, Alma Tate,

00:38:34--> 00:38:37

we should be aware,

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

of being the opposite of what

00:38:43--> 00:38:49

Allah describes himself with. Allah describes himself as an athlete,

00:38:50--> 00:38:53

the one who provides sustenance,

00:38:54--> 00:38:57

nourishment, can help

00:38:58--> 00:38:59


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


00:39:03--> 00:39:05

where we become the opposite of that,

00:39:06--> 00:39:07


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


00:39:10--> 00:39:11


00:39:12--> 00:39:14

is a road to hell.

00:39:16--> 00:39:18

And this has been

00:39:19--> 00:39:23

affirmed by Prophet Muhammad SAW someone in no end have had this.

00:39:25--> 00:39:26


00:39:27--> 00:39:29

my brothers and sisters,

00:39:30--> 00:39:31

we should reflect,

00:39:33--> 00:39:46

while thanking a lot for being who he is, and providing for us providing provision according to our needs, in the best way possible.

00:39:47--> 00:39:58

We need to do likewise to our fellow human beings and to the animal kingdom, that ally has given us power over

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

Barack a lot of people

00:40:03--> 00:40:24

so that's why they call him what to buy him over cattle. And we will close with our do our using the name, or LA Yama, Pete, we know that you sustain and nourish all your creatures according to each of their specific needs.

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

And we thank you for doing so. Even though we don't really deserve it. Due to our disobedience and other sins,

00:40:35--> 00:40:36

Yamato ate,

00:40:37--> 00:40:49

we implore you to put in our hearts contentment for whatever you have decided, is what we need. And not what we think we need

00:40:50--> 00:40:57

for Surely, you know, what is best for us. And we don't and

00:40:59--> 00:41:04

Baraka lafay booms that ID or how to lie, he will better get

00:41:06--> 00:41:08

to now, shift

00:41:10--> 00:41:12

to the third portion of our

00:41:14--> 00:41:16

program, our class,

00:41:18--> 00:41:20

and that is it.

00:41:21--> 00:41:23

period for q&a?

00:41:32--> 00:41:35

Well, for our q&a,

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


00:41:43--> 00:41:46

Do rot to be an Mahabharat. That's the

00:41:49--> 00:41:50

maxim was which

00:41:52--> 00:41:54

wouldn't come out of my mouth

00:41:55--> 00:42:01

was in my head. Yes, a doodle rod to be a matter of the rod.

00:42:03--> 00:42:05


00:42:07--> 00:42:10

Make permissible, forbidden.

00:42:20--> 00:42:23

Okay. Let's look at our questions now.

00:42:25--> 00:42:27

Estella asks,

00:42:29--> 00:42:37

Are women allowed to say to lock and have a divorce? Does she have to wait three months

00:42:38--> 00:42:44

for the divorce to complete and a female initiated divorce is possible.

00:42:46--> 00:42:49

It's done through the system.

00:42:50--> 00:42:58

She requests a talaq from the courts, through the courts, or through the head of the community.

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

She could

00:43:04--> 00:43:07

state the lock if she put that in her.

00:43:11--> 00:43:24

In her marriage contract when she was getting married, she put this clause in that she would be allowed to pronounce divorce if

00:43:25--> 00:43:27

the need arose.

00:43:29--> 00:43:37

But normally, you know, this female initiated the divorce is called hula.

00:43:38--> 00:43:39


00:43:41--> 00:43:45

she does so to her family and the courts

00:43:47--> 00:43:57

requesting it and it is supposed to be implemented with some conditions that the husband may

00:43:59--> 00:44:02

get back the dowry, which he gave.

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


00:44:07--> 00:44:14

following that, then the court can issue the lock.

00:44:20--> 00:44:21

The next question

00:44:27--> 00:44:29

thank you for explaining about that motif.

00:44:31--> 00:44:37

Question Elmo days is a made up name. Should we call a locate

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

a wave?

00:44:40--> 00:44:47

Well, we'll be looking at that. When we complete the 99. We will be looking at Alamo wave

00:44:51--> 00:44:56

insha Allah and we'll answer that question at that time.

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

sambar Zubair

00:45:03--> 00:45:09

should want to have to wash the plate of non Muslims if they have served as food.

00:45:12--> 00:45:19

No, this is not a requirement. Some people

00:45:21--> 00:45:26

have made it a practice in some countries, where whenever non Muslims come into the

00:45:28--> 00:45:33

home and they use any utensils that people wash them

00:45:35--> 00:45:38

based on the

00:45:39--> 00:45:43

laws statement in the ML machinery cool now

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


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

that the

00:45:51--> 00:45:55

disbelievers are impure

00:45:57--> 00:45:59

goona medicine.

00:46:00--> 00:46:04

But scholars have explained that this is not physical niassa

00:46:05--> 00:46:08

but spiritual madrasa

00:46:09--> 00:46:13

their belief system is impure.

00:46:15--> 00:46:19

And we know that because even one of the wives of the Prophet is

00:46:20--> 00:46:24

in Medina when her mother had come from Mecca visitor,

00:46:25--> 00:46:36

and she got permission from the processor to allow the mother in her home and the pastor seldom, of course, left it open, you know, she could come to visit her anytime.

00:46:38--> 00:46:44

And when she came after she left, then

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

the wife of the prophet SAW Salaam

00:46:50--> 00:46:53

or no, I think it was just that

00:46:54--> 00:47:05

she was reluctant to allow her in the home for fear that she would make the bone impure. Due to her presence in the home and a process that lamp

00:47:07--> 00:47:11

told her to allow her in the home and cancel that idea.

00:47:16--> 00:47:17

Was my

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


00:47:21--> 00:47:31

listening to her last name and saying it while listening? is a good deed? Or will it be rewarded? That's what I say to my kids.

00:47:34--> 00:47:35


00:47:39--> 00:47:41

listening to a last name,

00:47:43--> 00:47:48

last names they're being decided to be exposed to them.

00:47:49--> 00:47:52

course, we have to

00:47:53--> 00:47:57

assume that the list is correct, the correct list

00:47:58--> 00:48:01

and reciting those names.

00:48:03--> 00:48:05

Without understanding having understood them,

00:48:06--> 00:48:12

while others are reciting them, there's no harm.

00:48:15--> 00:48:16


00:48:17--> 00:48:23

having the kids learn the names that wait to memorize with to be aware of memorizing the names.

00:48:25--> 00:48:34

Again is no harm as long as the list is an authentic list, which doesn't have names which are inauthentic.

00:48:36--> 00:48:41

We have any questions from our students Instagram.

00:48:53--> 00:48:58

No, there are other names of the law apart from Milan tonight.

00:49:00--> 00:49:06

This is a question which was answered in our first or second

00:49:07--> 00:49:18

class. The 99 is not the limit. There only Allah only has 99 names No.

00:49:19--> 00:49:31

And we brought the evidence from the eyes of the prophets Allah etc. which speak about Names of Allah which are known only to Allah.

00:49:34--> 00:49:38

So we know that it's not only 99 and we mentioned some scholars

00:49:40--> 00:49:44

compiled lists of over 1000 names.

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

Clean criteria and for extracting the names

00:49:50--> 00:49:51

may vary.

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

Some scholars may not agree on some of the criteria and use by others.

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

But for sure,

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

there are

00:50:04--> 00:50:30

other names and we will look at some of those. After we complete our 99, we'll look at some of the other names 10 or 15 of the other names, which are candidates for being listed in the in anybody else's list of names of Allah as well as those that are not candidates, those which are not.

00:50:31--> 00:50:37

They don't have fulfilled criteria for being among the names of Allah.

00:50:43--> 00:50:46

Abraham, Adam,

00:50:47--> 00:50:49

in case we missed,

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


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

People before that.

00:50:59--> 00:51:16

The other three, Sally was asking, I fear to die so much, that sometimes I cry. This fear interrupts my daily work, most of times, I'm sad because of death. Any solution?

00:51:18--> 00:51:22

Well, it depends on why you're afraid to die.

00:51:24--> 00:51:35

If you're afraid to die, because your sins are many, and you're afraid to meet Allah, with all the sins that you've committed,

00:51:36--> 00:51:38

then this is a good fear,

00:51:40--> 00:51:43

which is pleasing to Allah, which is rewardable.

00:51:46--> 00:51:49

But if it's fear, like the fear of a lion,

00:51:50--> 00:52:07

a lion jumps out of its cage and zoo, comes running towards you, you have a massive fear of this line. So your fear of death is like that kind of fear, then that kind of fear is not really rewardable.

00:52:09--> 00:52:10


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

what it means is that

00:52:15--> 00:52:19

we need to work towards gender.

00:52:22--> 00:52:26

Do more works, which will put us on the path to gender

00:52:29--> 00:52:35

until we build up a level of confidence that we're going in the right direction

00:52:36--> 00:52:46

with that confidence, that fear overwhelming fear that you're experiencing, causing you to cry, etc.

00:52:48--> 00:52:50

It will pass away.

00:52:55--> 00:52:57

Do you have any further questions from

00:52:59--> 00:53:01

our Instagram? students?

00:53:06--> 00:53:09

Nope. The brain Adam

00:53:10--> 00:53:13

asked in case we missed to rock out of Monterey.

00:53:17--> 00:53:18

Miss to regard the mother

00:53:20--> 00:53:30

do we read aloud while praying it? Or is it okay? To read silently, as I see some people do.

00:53:33--> 00:53:35

For me say fudger

00:53:37--> 00:53:50

which needs to be recited aloud and may reside quietly and it's preferable to recite it aloud for that are said aloud to be decided aloud when missed.

00:53:51--> 00:53:59

But it's recited not, you know, on a level that you're going to, you've got a loud voice,

00:54:00--> 00:54:15

meaning that you are reading as if you're reciting as if you're leading Salah. So you raise your voice so the people behind you can hear but rather you read aloud, which is enough for you.

00:54:17--> 00:54:31

That what you're saying is audible. It's enough for your prayer without being so loud as to disturb others who may be reading or reciting in other prayers

00:54:37--> 00:54:44

was my Jamal as my friend buys currency at a lower price and sells it at a higher price.

00:54:46--> 00:54:49

Is this haram earning or not Haram in Islam?

00:54:50--> 00:54:51


00:54:52--> 00:54:55

once you are buying currency,

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

to sell it at a lower price to sell it at a higher price.

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

This is generally looked at as a form of rebar.

00:55:05--> 00:55:08

It's spot in interest interest given

00:55:10--> 00:55:15

at the moment, not over periods of time not set based on

00:55:16--> 00:55:25

periods of time because browsers are lump forbade, you're selling dates, you exchange dates for dates, one kilo of dates for one kilo of dates.

00:55:27--> 00:55:33

And any give a number of other examples, like for like,

00:55:34--> 00:55:35

once you shift,

00:55:36--> 00:55:37


00:55:39--> 00:55:43

you are engaging in a form of interest.

00:55:45--> 00:55:48

So that purchasing of currency

00:55:52--> 00:56:01

where the President is purchasing the currency and selling the same currency at higher prices, this would be a form of rebar should not be done.

00:56:03--> 00:56:12

Stella asks, If one has a phobia of animals, is that disliked in the eyes of Allah? No.

00:56:13--> 00:56:15

You know, having a phobia about animals,

00:56:16--> 00:56:21

no harm, but you can still treat them well. And avoid harming them.

00:56:25--> 00:56:37

So if you tried to get over the phobia, and you couldn't, don't feel that you're insane, etc. Or you may have had some traumatic experiences with the child, which remained with you.

00:56:38--> 00:56:39


00:56:40--> 00:56:46

perhaps with counseling, the saturate may help you get over it. But until such time you're not insane.

00:56:52--> 00:56:57

Question Faisal Ali asked, Can I ask a non Muslim to pray for me?

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

Well, if they're not praying to God, then that is foolish.

00:57:06--> 00:57:08

If you know they're praying to Jesus,

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

or to Shiva, then asking them to pray for you is foolish. You might think it's like well, okay, you know, I'm showing a kind of, I asked my Muslim friends so I also asked my non Muslim friends so don't feel left out. Now. This is your deen your religion and you need to protect it.

00:57:35--> 00:57:38

Last question, Ibrahim. Adam.

00:57:39--> 00:57:43

What if my parents who sponsored me sponsored me with the rebar money

00:57:45--> 00:57:48

What do I do to expel allows punishment on

00:57:49--> 00:57:53

and spirit after this explanation of his name?

00:57:55--> 00:57:59

Well, they sponsored you with the rebar money.

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

What you should do,

00:58:03--> 00:58:07

you're actually in a position to earn now is to

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

get that sponsored rebar money

00:58:13--> 00:58:38

back and give it away in charity, not seeking any reward but seeking to remove the sin from what your parents did. Because it's Riba money meaning the money which has rebounded so it's the river on it, which is haram. So that's what you need to give away in charity to purify money.

00:58:42--> 00:59:01

On asthma, can you advise how to teach children eight years old, to become regular in prayer, so that they come to love it. But I've spoken about that before. You know, this is the importance of teaching children to be thankful to Allah

00:59:02--> 00:59:04

from the earliest ages,

00:59:05--> 00:59:10

so that they understand that whatever they have comes from Allah.

00:59:11--> 00:59:25

So, whatever they are given, they give fans to the people who have given it to them as well as giving thanks to Allah. They have to have to develop that sense of the need to thank Allah.

00:59:26--> 00:59:35

So this is something you should have calculated much earlier but it's never too late to try to teach them to understand

00:59:37--> 00:59:39

standard stand their relationship with a law

00:59:46--> 00:59:48

question from Juma

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

What if someone is Shia, and besides Quran and Hadith believe your follow up with the beloved Beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW some

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

Well, he may be a maybe he was he may be a Shia who doesn't realize what it actually means to be a Shiite.

01:00:11--> 01:00:15

So, he could be an accepted follower.

01:00:18--> 01:00:30

In that sense, I mean, some people who are not Muslims, others all that they have deviated as others amongst the Sigma have deviated

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

Shaheen Khan,

01:00:40--> 01:00:47

where can I find the best translation in English of the hologram? Sorry, I have it.

01:00:50--> 01:00:55

Well, there are a number of cell phones translation

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

is available

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


01:01:03--> 01:01:09

Amazon iph, bookstore, tower corner books Daraa Salaam, cetera

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

there's the revised version of

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

the loose Valley's translation

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

there is Sahih International

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

still sold in many locations around the world.

01:01:29--> 01:01:34

And as well some new translations which have come on the market in the last five years 510 years

01:01:40--> 01:01:47

consumables were what is the ruling on eating from non Muslim vessels I discussed that already.

01:01:48--> 01:01:50

non Muslim

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

vessels should be cleaned them first.

01:01:56--> 01:02:06

Oh, are the other question is being asked that if they eat from your vessels, what should you do? Now eating from non Muslim vessels is fine, it's not necessary to clean them.

01:02:11--> 01:02:12


01:02:14--> 01:02:29

from the Quran, we get many things like Names of Allah, things that Allah dislikes and likes and the stories of the prophets as guidance. What else wisdom or can we all

01:02:32--> 01:02:33

get it from the Koran?

01:02:34--> 01:02:37

Well, I mean, the Quran has

01:02:38--> 01:02:41

guidance in so many different areas of our lives.

01:02:43--> 01:02:52

In it in can't really imagine any aspect of our lives. Where the Quran doesn't have guidance, to help humankind

01:02:53--> 01:02:55

in living

01:02:57--> 01:02:59

in a righteous way,

01:03:00--> 01:03:04

worshipping Allah while doing things that we do,

01:03:05--> 01:03:11

as the Lord told us from endless allottee when the Suki or Mati Mati deniable, Allah mean

01:03:12--> 01:03:19

this is the motto of the believer in US allottee indeed my worship,

01:03:23--> 01:03:25

Almighty I will mighty

01:03:26--> 01:03:30

my living and my dying for a law the Lord of all the worlds

01:03:32--> 01:03:46

what Misaki I left out, that is my sacrifices, sacrifice that I did sacrifice of animals to be sacrifices in life. All of it should be for a law, the Lord of all the words.

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

So I think

01:03:54--> 01:03:55

we have covered

01:03:58--> 01:03:59

our questions for today.

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

And we'll see you tomorrow. Insha Allah

01:04:07--> 01:04:15

Subhana Allah, Ambika shadow Allah land and then start fluka where to go
