would like to shift now to our main program, which may be added long today. There are some big issues which we cover in this
name with such massive impact and such vast implications
wa la ilaha illallah wa ala
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah hille Karim. Allah Allah He was hobby for many Stan Nabisco nachi li oma deal.
This is the 34th session
in which we'll be looking at two names. Number 50 and 51.
Al Karim and Al pacrim. The most generous, the most noble in terms of its Quranic location.
Al Karim. The Divine Name is mentioned twice in the Quran. Among them is Yeah, you had an insane amount of our Raka Mira Beagle Karim.
all humankind, what has deceived you concerning your Lord, the Most Generous
and the Divine Name and Akram is mentioned only once in the grand Kirra or bukal, Accra recite, and your Lord is the Most Generous
in terms of its linguistic meaning.
Kareem and Akram come from the trial literal root calf, raw meme
and they are derived from the gerund cara cara moon,
which has three main meanings. The first meaning is to be generous, giving and beneficent.
The second meaning of this route, is to be gentle, kind, and forbearing.
On the other hand, the third basic meaning is to be highly esteemed, honored and valued.
Know that Allah crumb is the superlative form of Kareem,
on the pattern of
meaning the most generous and noble, while Kareem is the intensive form of the present participle carrying
on the usual pattern of fail, found in
many of the Divine Names.
This Geron root appears some 47 times in the Koran in eight derived forms. Examples of these forms can be seen in Akram
most generous kirara man, dignified ones, I'll look around mean, in honored ones. And I'll crom honor
in the Arabic language.
not only means generous,
it is also
used to include many other related meanings.
Kareem includes being patient, noble, pure and beneficial. In other words, each and every laudable thing may be described as Kareem.
For example, a precious stone.
The term precious is expressed using Kareem a beneficial letter.
beneficial is expressed by Kareem.
A noble good looking person.
Again, the term Kareem
covers those meanings.
Last Name al Karim is will is related to a number of other names
among them al Wahhab, the giver
or the provider,
in the sense that he initiate favors for the believers beyond what we deserve.
Al Karim brought us into existence, even though he was not obliged to do so. And he gave us the whole world.
poor lady Haleakala calm marfil all the Jamia It is he who created for you all that is in the earth.
Accra Akram revealed for us a holy book, Quran scripture
which is not only a book of rules to live by, but also a cure for our spiritual emotional and psychological ailments.
Yeah, evenness for the job at home or wherever to Europe become was far on Lima is sudo. Wha hoo. down we're off Mattoon.
Little movement is all humankind. instructions from your Lord have come to you.
And the cure for what is in the chests, the hearts and the souls
and guidance and the mercy for the believers.
The heart is contained in the chest and it is also the point at which the soul is connected to the body. Consequently recitation of the Quran
on those with spiritual, emotional and psychological sicknesses, was used and taught by Prophet Mohammed salsa and narrated to us by His companions.
Al Karim has made
our prescribed prayers not only rituals, but also treasure chests have multiple rewards in order to demonstrate to his followers, the power of daily prayers the Prophet sallallahu Sallam once asked the group of them if a person had a stream outside his door, and he bathed in it five times a day. Do you think he would have any filth left on him?
The people replied, No fields would remain on him whatsoever. The Prophet saws alum said that is like the five daily prayers allow wipes away the sins by them.
Allah also stressed the character changing goals of daily prayers, saying in the salata done her annual fascia it will Moncure
indeed, daily prayers prohibit immorality and wrongdoing.
Praying regularly five times a day engages the believers in constant remembrance of God.
And in that way, it keeps him or her away from corruption and sin
and leads him or her instead to deeds that will earn the pleasure of God
is only through prayer. That one really finds inner peace and fulfillment. As the law said, Allah be decree law he taught my angel kulu kulu is only with a remembrance of Allah that hearts will find rest.
Regular prayer is also a source of patience, courage, hope, confidence, stability, and an expression of thankfulness.
Kareem in his kindness didn't limit our food to just one type, as in the case of most creatures on earth, like carnivores and herbivores. Instead, we are he included an amazing variety of tastes, forms and flavors from meats and plants. In case you didn't know
omnivores are meat eaters and herbivores are plant eaters.
This is Al Karim's extremely generous way of giving.
The Divine Name al Karim is also related to the Divine Name, Allah foo, the partner. Because even when we sin and forget about it, a lot deals with us kindly and gently and sympathetically, by allowing us to continue to live comfortably, in spite of our sinful ways.
Furthermore, he covers most of our sins, and when we occasionally turn to Him repentant, out of his amazing generosity, he doesn't just forgive, but completely erases our bad deeds, and on top of this, turns them into good deeds. So Han Allah is truly at
the repentance acceptor, and what a generous, forgiving Lord, he is.
related to the Divine Name, Ashoka,
appreciative, which we looked at before. Al Karim also rewards us generously when we only present to him the smallest of sincere acts of worship.
For example, the reward of only a single night worship on Laila to cuddle is that of a lifetime of worship 1000 months or 83 years
old ultimate example of course, is Jenna. everlasting pleasure for a few years of worship in this life.
Kareem is also related to the Divine Name, Allah Halim, the forbury
for whoever he gives, he gives most generously and whenever al Karim is disobeyed, he forgives most forbearing Lee, so behind Allah,
he has the most generous and gracious ways of forgiving our countless sins. He blesses us so abundantly that it is as if we have never sinned, even once in our lives.
The meaning of the Divine Name al Karim
is also quite similar to that of Allah dude.
for us to be worthy of Allah's Divine Love, is truly a generosity. We should recognize. Kareem says in alladhina amanu amylose solid hot sun Agia Allah Hoon, sunset say ajala humara Man Who Would
the Most Gracious
will bestow love upon those who believe and work, righteous deeds,
laws, divine attributes of karma is truly beyond our imagination. And the validity of our faith depends on us realizing it, appreciating it, and living grateful lives according to it.
Moving on to the application,
it will backhauls four principles forms the
in which the first of the principles is to adopt where applicable.
How can we do that? Well, first and foremost,
we can be generous, like Allah, Karim, and Accra.
As you mentioned earlier,
last names and attributes are of two types, those that can only be attributed to him like a Holic, the creator, and those that can and should be attributed to ourselves on a limited human scale.
These two Divine Names
and Al Akram are among the latter.
We can easily adopt these Divine Names by simply being
generous with our belongings, our time and even our words. The prophets a lot of Solomon said, generous people are close to Allah, close to people and far from the hellfire.
On the other hand, stingy people are far from Allah, far from people and far from Paradise. In fact, the generous ignorant person is more beloved to Allah than a stingy worshiper.
if we have lived a stingy and selfish life, becoming generous, will naturally be difficult.
But it can be done by the practice makes perfect principle, which the profits are seldom left behind for us based on a patient's acquisition strategy.
He was quoted as saying, Well, my sub bar you Sabir hula whoever feigns or pretends to be patient, Allah will grant him or her patience.
So, whoever feigns generosity continuously,
Allah will make him or her naturally generous after some time, it's not going to come overnight. One has to do it continuously until it becomes a natural way. They don't have to force ourselves. So no matter what our temperament may be, everyone can practice generosity using this method. Even if our hearts are not in it, we simply pretend to be generous on the outside, by regularly giving regularly to other people
according to a planned schedule, until it becomes a habit,
not giving regular sometimes and not giving. At other times, we need to set a plan schedule to keep us on it.
We shouldn't do so only whenever we get the chance. You know, once we say that, whenever we get the chance, we never get the chance.
And that's due to our natural desire not to share. We've grown up with it, and our stinginess will never go. Initially, most likely, it will involve a lot of effort. But generosity is a noble quality worth sacrificing our miserly egos for
we can also
implement and adopt these attributes by developing a strong relationship with a Koran al Karim
laws, divine book,
is itself both Kareem and across
because it is full of benefit, guidance, wisdom and blessings. And it is free from error or contradiction, as is the case of the books of Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc.
Consequently, it is no surprise that Allah referred to the Quran itself, as being Karim Noble. In Nauvoo. lacor and on carry, indeed, it is a noble crime.
We should try to open a Corolla Karim at least once every day.
And even if we only read one verse, per day, we should try to understand whatever we have read
and allow its meanings to sink into our hearts and souls.
In order to transform our character by opening our minds and softening our hearts
We should leave ritual reading
those mathematical Muslims
focused on only the 10 has an ad promised for every letter which is read. So they will read
the text without thinking about what it means or anything. They're just saying the Arabic text and collecting has are not as they believe.
But do they actually collect pass an act? This is another question altogether.
The grant is fundamentally a book on guidance which a law clearly states in the beginning of the Quran right from the very beginning I left lime mean, Valley Kalki tabula rasa Buffy who then little moto de
la meme This is the book in which there is no doubt guidance for those who fear a lot those who are mindful of Allah.
among many Muslims, if not most Muslims, the Quran itself has become a book to be worshipped.
Not a book
guiding how to worship Allah, but a book which is itself worship like an idol.
As amongst the seers,
they have what is called the Guru Granth Sahib. This is their book compiled ation of writings of Guru Nanak and others,
a body of rituals
were invented around it around the Quran,
here are only a few
top 12 that I could recall
from my travels around the Muslim world,
number one, it should be kept in a high place.
Number two, nothing should be placed on top of
if you put the Quran on your desk, and you put something on top of it, you know,
your parents, if you're from those traditions will slap you on your head.
People will shout that you
put something on top of the
number three, it should be encased in leather or cloth. You know, it shouldn't be just left plain.
Some of these are strongly done in some places and not done in other places and occasionally done in yet other places.
A woman's head should be covered in a scarf and a man in a prayer gap.
When removed from its case, it should be kissed
and touched on the forehead.
If one is opening it number six, for fortune telling purposes, or finding a name for one's children, it should be randomly open, you don't go and pick your page to be random. You open it randomly. When you open it randomly. You shouldn't be looking
on the page. So you'll have an idea of where to put your finger no you look away to open it randomly looking away. Then you just put your finger on the page, either side of the page, put your finger there and then you look to see what your finger as touched.
Of course they have if they have the letter of the first letter of the word that you put your finger on, or the fortune tellers they use this to to tell you what your future is going to be. For those who are looking for names. You know, you put the finger on the name. I was shocked when I had one of my students Her name was not me. It was you get this name from my parents they just opened the crown and we're in here and not her sister's name was
and write for the ant
Nunu so it was not a novel be an ant Subhana Allah.
But this is common.
Number seven and eight. It should not be placed on one's lap
if you're sitting in the masjid
You're reading the grind and you place it in your lap. As you're reading, somebody will comment only below, you've put your core and on top of your hour.
What is this?
And if you put it on the ground, for example, please come to a verse, which is the verse for prostration processor and Mr. prostrate whenever you read this verse, and you put it on the ground, to make prostration Oh,
and tiama yom Okayama has just arrived.
If people catch you doing that,
number nine, if it falls from one's hands accidentally, it should be picked up, carefully kissed and touched on the top of your head again.
Number 10, it should not the left open,
you leave the crowd, someone's gonna come close it, don't leave that.
Number 11. If one is sitting in the mosque, one's feet should not be stretched out
so that the bottom of the feet is facing the racks or the shelves in which other copies of the Quran are cut
out the bottom of your foot
number 12. When leaving the room or mosque, one should be careful not to give one's back to the Quran. So don't turn around and start to leave the masjid.
Or the room in which you are
You should walk backwards
to the door while facing the location of the Quran. Maybe you might hit a pillar, Masjid, if you're not careful, I would have been that. And these are just 12 that came to my mind that I've come across in my travels. And there are many more.
Of course, none of these practices. And I mean, absolutely none of these practices have any basis in the Sunnah of the Prophet survivors.
And there are mainly traditions and customs, which developed around the ritualization of reading the Koran.
Because once the reading of the Quran in terms of its meaning was left,
people were not reading it for the meaning to take information from it, then the rituals around the act of reading actually reciting without understanding the rituals around it now took on special place became very, very, you know, complex. And, you know, so you had to feel like you know, in the process of reading, you've gone through so many different steps you did this, you did that you had to do this and
So it's worthy of the 10 has an ad for every letter that you read.
Although individually, with the exception of the fortune telling and the naming, if anyone chose to do these, any of these rituals, they could they want to kiss the ground
can do it. You know, it's not to say it's hard.
But once you make it an obligatory ritual, which the community must follow, that is haram.
Because it then becomes bidda innovation in the religion, which the prophet SAW Selim described as misguidance, leading to the hellfire. Now some people say why bother with it? It's so minor and insignificant, and then do what they want to do. Don't disturb them. Don't tell them. It's not right. Because then they start to become confused and know why is this and now what our parents were all wrong, but did this and all the other things that come with it? Say you're being too picky over trivial matters.
However, a lot did say that he would not change the condition of a people until they change themselves. In the La La La Romana Coleman had de la rue might be unfair to him. So if we can't change the insignificant how in the world are we going to change the major significant issues like Palestine, the wiggers, the rohingyas, Yemen etc. That face the oma
How we're gonna do that
there's no hope. If we can't change the little things
the Quran, Quran Al Karim.
This, the Divine Names related to it.
And the implications of Khurram
also include being noble,
we can strive to adopt this attitude for ourselves also, this is something adoptable.
Not only can we be generous, kind, giving, etc. But we can also be strive to be Noble. However, this attribute in Islam has nothing to do with one's ancestry. So we don't become boastful I am I say it. But you're saying what does that mean?
I am a descendant of Prophet Muhammad. Allah really
and say it's only Mary says,
do you have that chain that shows your father, grandfather, great grandfather, great, great grandfather, all the way back to the show was awesome.
Now I think my uncle had one and
well, let me tell you
of those who claim to be say it's, are not.
we adopt the
attribute of nobility.
Not by calling ourselves let's say it,
or ashamed, or whatever.
This is not the basis of nobility. From the Islamic perspective.
Neither is marrying into a prominent aristocratic family
means of nobility in the sight of Allah. Allah has already identified the one and only criterion for nobility in His sight, saying in the Quran, in a Croma comb in the law he at koco
surely the most noble among you in the last sight
is the most God fearing the most mindful
Allah made the only basis for an ability in Islam, the degree to which a person is mindful of a loss, displeasure.
piety or God consciousness is the only real criterion of nobility among humans from a law perspective,
as all the other standards are God given and not a result of human effort.
Consequently, taqwa God consciousness, which is the result of spiritual striving,
because it is the only true for foundation of righteousness,
taqwa becomes the be all and end all of mobility.
Even the physical act of jihad,
which is so highly regarded in Islam,
it is put in second place behind Jihad of one soul against our evil desires.
In our reported that the prophet SAW seldom said of jihad, the manager had enough sir, fee that Allah azzawajal the best jihad is that of one who strives against the evil temptations of his soul, for the sake of Allah, Most Great, most glorious, and I was after
he quoted the Messenger of Allah as saying, of the love jihad.
You jaha rajul nafsa waha
the best form of jihad is for a man to strive against
The evil temptations of his soul and his desires
for a man or a woman.
Likewise, the prophet SAW Selim waged psychological warfare against tribalism, which was rampant amongst the Arabs of his time, as well as among the people of the world. All over.
Will nhadra reported that the prophet SAW solemn said in the middle days of the shooting, especially
at the end of his farewell pilgrimage,
oh people, your Lord is one.
Your father Adam, is one.
There is no favor due to an Arab over a non Arab
nor a non Arab over an Arab
and neither a white over a black or a black over a white accept by
taqwa except by piety, consciousness of Allah.
And then he asked, Have I not delivered the message? And the people responded saying, the Messenger of Allah has delivered the message. The prophet SAW Selim, under instructions from Allah also made a series of open statements representing the foundation of his direct attack on tribalism,
run a cage occasion he linked it to the declaration of faith, saying, whoever calls to tribalism is not a true follower of my
man dial and alpha via fillet salmon.
When asked about the merits of tribalism,
he replied, Baja, for in Tina,
drop it, for indeed it is rotten.
On another occasion, he challenged
their understanding of tribalism, his followers understanding of tribalism, by apparently instructing them to be tribalist using a common tribalist slogan, he addressed them saying, support your brother, whether he is the oppressor or the oppressed. That's what they used to say that was the slogan.
They immediately because he had now trained them, it taught them, it raised them.
So they immediately found this to be wrong. How could it be? This is what we used to say.
They immediately questioned him, saying all messenger of Allah, we understand helping our brother if he's oppressed, but how can we help him when he is the oppressor?
Ra's al Salam replied, stop him from oppression. That's how you help him.
The problem is, I'm further smashed even the language of racism and tribalism, by addressing it publicly, whenever abusive statements were made in His presence,
though his norm was to correct wrong statements gently and privately. In this matter, he addressed it very strongly and harshly with harsh words. On one occasion, one of the well known companions or Buddha
angrily yelled out that Bilal yabla saw that, oh, you son of a black woman, the prophet SAW Selim turn, as severely scolded and humiliated and saying, and Roger, non physical Jah helia you're a man still having the habits of the time of ignorance.
Inside you will immediately realize, of course, there was a major error on his part. Then he humbly knelt down, put his head on the ground, refusing to lift his head from the dirt, while pleading with be allowed to walk over it. And he remained in that position, until reluctantly below walked over it.
The prophet SAW sanlam also led this attack on racialism and tribalism by personal example,
Actions speak louder than words. He shocked his followers
from Makkah, Croatia.
People who are among the first to accept the slap
shot them by marrying the Coptic slave girl Maria
and bringing her into his household.
And he encouraged intermarriage among his followers by marrying Sophia, a Jewish prisoner of war from Medina.
He also adopted zaidan no hatikvah as his son and change his name to say they've been hammered.
He was a slave initially
given to him by his wife, his first wife, Khadija,
the province Arsalan even went one step further, and encouraged Zainab bint jahsh his cousin from the Croatia nobles to marry his ex slave and adopted sons eight.
There's a declaration to the world of Islam's war against racism. The prophet SAW solemn had the Abyssinian former slave belie live in robot climb on top of the Kaaba in Mecca,
in front of all of the inhabitants of Mecca, and make the call to prayer.
Furthermore, the prophet SAW Selim informed his followers that he had heard in a dream
and he had always informed them. The dreams of the prophets are all true dreams he had heard in a dream allows footsteps ahead of him in bad acts to Bahama
before dying, the prophet SAW Salem appointed a 15 year old black teenager Oussama the son of zayde, as head of the Muslim army, and he also made him marry a Croatia noble woman, by the name of Fatima bint face.
As they say,
actions speak louder than words, this you will not find in any religion
of the old religions etc, it will not be there.
Instead, the writings etc of the these old religions
Ancient Ones contain racism.
So, the actions of Prophet Muhammad Salah became the model for practicing Muslims until today and then model to humanity globally.
Moving on to the second principle of human bob bob
confirm were unique and in applicable.
The main dimensions of these Divine Names are Karim and lokrum, which are inapplicable are the universal aspects. Thus, it must be recognized that only Allah is generous and kind without limitations.
So in dealing with our fellow human beings, we have to be aware that human kindness and generosity has its limits.
For this reason, the Islamic criminal laws give the right to forgive the criminal
to the lawyer to the harm the party
and it's not left up to the judges and jury to decide.
We should recognize the laws generosity in forgiving our sins, and even erasing them as well as transforming them from sins into good deeds. As Allah said,
lamb and turbo, amen. Well, I mean, I'm Alon salejaw. That will occur. You bet the law who say it him has an ad for can Allahu Allah for Ron rahima except for one who repents, believes and does righteous deeds for such Allah will change their evil deeds into good deeds. So behind Allah.
We should also confirm a laws unmatched generosity mentioned in the Hadith Pudsey, Mr. Bansal Sallam said in
Did Allah has recorded good deeds and evil deeds, and explain them. So whoever intends to do a good deed, and doesn't do it, allow it recorded for him as a complete good deed. And if he intends to do, if he intends good,
and does it, allow will record it for him as 10 to 700, good deeds or more,
and whoever intends a bad deed, and doesn't do it, a law records it
and doesn't do it.
A law records it as one good deed.
And if it does it, it is recorded as one bad deed.
So only Allah knows our intentions.
Only he could reward us for our intentions.
third principle of even batam is to have hope, where there is a promise.
The Divine Names are Kareem and Allah cram both contain a multitude of promises for the believers.
The essence of the Islamic message is found
in its promotion, through the Sharia, of good moral behavior, at all levels of human society.
And in all spheres of human interaction.
Prophet Muhammad SAW seldom had said
in the my boys to live with me Mama caramel o'clock, I was only sent to perfect for you the most noble
of moral character traits mccadden from getting
however, cultural and ritualized Islam tends to cloud the issues and block the avenues of real understanding and moral growth, and the Pillars of Islam and the man.
we don't talk about
the moral principles behind
the Pillars of Islam and the man.
We just memorize that Shahada time Salah, zakka, fasting, arch, those are the five pillars, five pillars.
And that's what we teach our children.
However, these pillars have behind them, each and every one of them has behind it,
a moral principle
which was intended.
So, the Shahada time for example, the moral principle is transparency.
You have something inside yourself.
You believe in Islam, then let it out. be transparent. Don't hide your Islam.
and also by sharing it with others,
being a missionary, or Islam,
Salah the five daily prayers
developing our God consciousness.
It teaches us also to speak good because we're now speaking
according to what allies prescribed and it's only good
and we're acting,
All of it
is good actions.
So the moral principle behind it is to act in a good way.
Speak in a good way.
Be conscious of God zakka
generosity, we all know that it's very obvious.
And to be compassionate,
giving to those who need
fasting, more principle of self control. But everything you desire, you should just be going out to try to grab,
control your stuff, being moderate and our actions and also being compassionate.
being conscious of what it's like to be hungry, not by choice.
this necessity of circumstance, you have no food available. So you have to go hungry
podge teaching us to be patient. Without patients, there's no hatch.
And it also teaches us the Moro Universalist principle,
recognizing people from all over the world.
We're all regarding what you look like what your color is, how tall you are, how short you are, all one.
Similarly, the six pillars of faith, each one of them has embedded in it. moral principles,
belief in a lot that's unconscious.
it gives us stability.
Be firm and that belief
in even the angels in the gym,
to be deliberate.
Danger angels are recording.
The jinn are interfering,
to be cautious,
not just jumping into things.
believe in the books,
The books of Revelation.
Allah already put inside of each and every one of us and awareness of right and wrong. Pile Hama, foodora. Every soul is given that awareness of right and wrong that should be enough to make us good people but Allah, on top of it, he gave us books of revelation to guide us and the messengers also
further gratitude, to show us not only the book to guide us which they delivered,
but the demonstration of how to use that book.
And it also call calls us to obedience,
to be obedient, obedient to the messenger
transas in that sense of obedience and there is of course, obedience to parents and obedience to authorities and all that comes along with it.
The last day
forces us to calculating our situation was about we spoke about earlier.
not just living a life, without consciousness
and being confident that
nobody is going to get away with anything.
But in this life, they may appear to but for sure
everyone will be held accountable.
And belief in the destiny.
It was destined patience, the moral principle moral characteristic,
with what allies decided
and being balanced, stable, not flipping from here to here to there.
The way is clear.
Allah has made it clear. We just need to be on
principle, that of fear where there is a warning.
Now these names
don't appear to have any warning.
They are reminders and assurances of laws, kindness
throughout all the stages of our lives
the danger which we should fear is embedded in our denying or rejecting a laws unbounded generosity is paramount in our lives.
It lies in our ungrateful, arrogant belief, as many life coaches suggest, that if we believe strongly enough in ourselves, we can do anything we wish and be anything we want to be.
The bottom line of course, is that it is not about how much we believe in ourselves, but about the favors and bounties. Allah Allah Karim Akram besides to generously grant us in spite of our arrogant disregard of and belief in him.
So we should instead fear that state of negligence and hearty arrogance, which can easily burn our bridges to salvation in the life to come.
And in this life, our lives
can become depressingly hellish. When we turn away from Allah and deny his column, his blessings in our lives,
man Allah and decree for in Allah who my shirt and banca we're not sure who your multi Amati army and whoever turns away from my remembrance will have a depressing life. And I will gather them on the Day of Resurrection, blind
law protect us from falling into that cursed state of misguidance and negligence.
we'll close our session
by calling on a lie using
these names. Or law. Yeah, Kareem. Yeah, Akram brantas the realization of your boundless generosity in our lives, so that we may appreciate it and appropriately be grateful to you.
guidance. Yeah, Kareem. guidance, to be generous to others, aiders to develop honorable and noble manners and adonus with understanding and practicing of your book.
Guide us in spreading the noble message of Islam. And in returning honor to the oma. Yeah, Kareem enters into your greatest act of generosity, paradise for those without reckoning
para la faecal. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.
We will now shift to our
of the session
five that most of you are waiting eagerly for
question number one
sometimes you don't quote the iron number, which affects us.
Those of us that take notes, could you please do so?
That's adding extra words.
I think I'm worthy enough as it is,
is inshallah they will be accessible.
Once the book is published,
they will be accessible easy enough.
And if you google
the words of the verse that you have written down
The eyes will pop up Alhamdulillah we have that? Where are we in the days past, then definitely, I would need to quote each and every verse
and each and every Hadith mentioned.
So you will be able to record it. Whereas today, we now have Google, Google search, Jeff, Google, he can
bring it up for you in a second.
So get used to researching, you know, because you don't want to be just spoon fed. Somebody just putting it all on a silver spoon, putting it in your mouth? Well, okay, you've got some information, you know, then it is good for you to do some research yourself, so that you can share this knowledge with others. And with confidence. you've researched it. And also, I think it's better to leave it as it is.
Although it will be easier, I agree with you. It will just be more wordy. I'm already saying a lot of words. So if we can keep the words down
to what is really necessary, then I think it's better.

And he's because of that, you know, his family is a rich family, their aristocratic family, they don't want their children to marry people who are not from that same kind of background.

what we have to keep in mind, as the guidelines of the prophets of Salaam are clear
regarding the interpretation of dreams,
as he said the dreams are of two types.
there is a middle type is this really three types. There's a middle type that's neither good nor bad. It's just confusion.
The rambling of your mind
with dreams, maybe true dreams
You might see yourself
at the Kaaba kissing the Blackstone
you may already
have no plans to make ads in the future.
If you end up going back there and doing what you saw in your dream, then it was a true dream. But otherwise it was a good dream. It's good to see yourself worshiping Allah.
But true things we can't predict.
We cannot judge a true dream, until what is in the dream occurs.
Now, the dream that you had about your grandmother asking you for food,
this is not going to happen. She's already dead and buried.
Alive, have mercy on her soul.
And make her grave.
A garden from Paradise.
what category do we put it it?
Did a badging, which is asking for food.
But could be if it makes you sad, makes you stressed out and to be bad from that perspective.
And bad dreams, of course processor and said don't talk about it.
drivers don't spread it anyway.
You may ask sharechat whatever you ask me.

So that type of a dream.
If it made you feel bad, sad, etc. Then better to just

So you have to look back in your life. Is that a reminder that a lot of sending to you through this channel?
Or after seeing it? you bump into somebody or you run into somebody who's asking for food?

Normally, you would ignore it because you're busy and etc. Now don't ignore it.
questions I had.
How to perform
during the lunar eclipse, is there any authentic hadith related to yes their authentic Hadees no and
you can pick up the details
from chef Google
but somebody Zubair
you're asking because there is a lunar eclipse
that will be visible in India. Well, as I said, I don't really remember the full details. So rarely done.
I know about staying and Roku up while they appear in book war while the eclipse sticks on.
But anyway, I think best thing is you Google it, get the details.
As soon as aware
what you mentioned about the misconceptions about the Quran, Kareem,
people won't get wrong
putting the Quran on the ground.
Nothing should be put on the top of the Quran, Kareem.
Oh, what I'm saying is that there's no problem. If you have a car, I finished reading it, you put it down, you're reading another book and you put it on top of the ground. No problem.
If you want to be well, you know, no, no, no, I cry. Let me put it up in high places or you can do it. But when you start to now insist your children don't put anything on top of the Quran.
Where are you getting that from?
What's your evidence for it?
your preference is your preference. But when you start making it the law now you're starting. B di

Petra from Philadelphia, I recall when I became a convert in the early 90s, that the Quran should be higher than other books. Is this the same myth?
of keeping the Koran up high? Yes.
It is the same myth.
All over the
all over them.
But it is a myth.
Not I read a lot of books online. Is it permissible to read books?
drawn comics that contain romance, sexual things killing a line as I don't act upon it, or get influenced by it?
Well, you know, if you're reading those matters, the likelihood of you being influenced is great.
I mean, what happens is not that you
read a book about a lot of violence and things like that murder and
and automatically after finishing the book, you get up and now you're going to go out and kill somebody. No, this is not how it works.
What happens is that it goes into your subconscious. And you read other books, and it's feeding and building in your subconscious.
So that when things occur in your life
and your mind

I mean, it could be entertaining, etc. But not so what you're watching or reading or doing or listening to, etc, should just not be in and of itself.
You could say excessively violent or excessively sexual, these kinds of things. It's just excessively I mean, nuances. I mean, today, you can't read anything virtually without some nuances being there.
How can I deal with my homosexuality through Islam?
Well, first and foremost,
do seek Allah's help.
And then it becomes an issue of
People have tendencies
And simply because we have these integrations, doesn't mean we have to act on them. This is the whole point. Now we will because people in promoting
these other lifestyles and sexual relations and this kind of things, you know, they they're arguing that this is natural, this is how I feel this is what I want to be and but But please, if we have somebody who is
a, you know, paedophile has this inclination, it has this desire. So we should say, Okay, well, you know,
it's okay to be a pedophile, you know, you're living out your desires, your weight,
you love to see that blood flow
from somebody's neck, when it's cut, you have this desire,
your mother, your sister did this to you or not you and your kid and now this has become a reality
you have to struggle with this, you have to fight with it. Now, if you feel that this is not right, you know, you have these tendencies or this inclination or you are in fact, a practicing homosexual, for example, and you believe, you know,
as a Muslim, this is not right, then you have to strive to struggle, you have to overcome it, it is something which may be overcome.
But if you don't have a belief system, you know, you're not really you're either a non practicing Muslim, or they may say, or
otherwise, then you don't have that higher power to
latch on to, to get support from to help you sufficiently to be able to overcome.
in the end, it's about
you making decisions for yourself, for your life,
and what you believe in

Sophia asks, Is a woman allowed to go to the masjid for Juma prayer? Yes, women went to the master Juma prayer and the time of the prophet SAW something and the Holy Father rushing in and in much of the oma even till today

Now she could go
and she's able to go to
the masala aid for aid of someone told me to come even if they're in their menses, just stay at the back, allow the
others to pray, because they're not going to be praying. So if you go and you sit in the masjid in the same way
we don't have any other means, of course, ideally, it would be better just to
listen to it from your own. But if that's what's available for you and your community, etc, then there is no harm
in that sense. Promise awesome I'm told I should go in the master then get his mat.
she's a woman is in a message that's mostly when a master at all period, he will not center in there in the first place.
Sephora man, can you please recommend a comprehensive aqidah book? I have read the fundamentals of tawheed.

I think the series which was done by Cher,

There are other books
which are in much more detail than my book the fundamentals of sahid which is taken from other books. You have the book if you go inside there, you will see references and you can all of those books that are available. If they've been translated into English you can get those books and get into more depth in your study.

It's been a while.
And that's a particular area of Aveda. And there are many other books of that, that nature available in the English market. The key is just to avoid things which are inauthentic you know, promoting
confused and misguided ideas.
