We will be
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah was with Al Karim.
Allah Allah He was Hobie minister now as soon as he niomi de appraises you to Allah And may Allah Peace and blessings beyond his last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and and all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day. This is session 37.
And we will be studying the name the 54th name out of rub
the Lord the master
in terms of location in the Quran.
This Divine Name Rob is mentioned 151 times in its singular form.
But in all of its forms, the name appears more than 900 times the
the well known example al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen oppresses due to Allah, Lord of all the worlds. That's the first verse of the first chapter on Fatiha of the Quran.
In terms of its meaning, linguistically, the word Rob comes from the trilateral route gras by that
and the Jarrod and Robin
Which has three main meanings.
The first meaning is to be Lord.
The second meaning is to take care of, to nourish, to sustain,
and to provide for.
The third basic meaning is to raise or to bring up.
This route appears a total of 980 times in the Quran in four derived forms, sometimes referring to Allah, and other times referring to his creatures. For example, when prophet Yusuf interpreted the dream of one of his cellmate, he said,
far as the robber who camera he will pour alcohol for his master. Rob Bahu
so are you so first 41 other examples of this form?
Rob be my lord
Bonnie Yuna, the rabbi's lawyer mbu now, religious scholars.
As a comprehensive Divine Name.
Rob contains the meanings of at least four other Divine Names.
linguistically, a rub is a term used for the owner, Al Malik. For the Master, I say it
for the one who takes care of and sustains and nourishes I'll pay you for the provider, or a zap, or the caretaker of everything.
That's according to listen and absorb the most classical dictionary in Arabic by Bill Manzoor.
Rob is also used in the Darfur construction of possession
with another noun indicating the master or the one who is to be obeyed. For example, Rob bull bait, master of the house.
Only Allah is our rock.
He is the one true and complete owner of everything in existence, and the only one who takes care nourishes and fosters everything that exists through every stage of existence.
which comes from Rob.
It is one of the categories of our head, which is Islamic monotheism,
which Muslims are expected to believe in and live by.
So hida Rumia means the unique unity of laws, lordship.
This means that we should affirm that a law is one and unique in all of his actions.
Examples of his actions can be found in creation,
the affairs of creation, providing provision for creation, giving and taking life, causing rain, etc.
However, only affirming the Lordship of Allah is not sufficient for someone to be a true Muslim, to be considered a true Muslim.
We must also affirm what is implied by the unique oneness of Allah, His Lordship, the unity of his divinity.
So heed and Gulu here, also known as Tao heed la bada and therefore, we devote our worship to Allah alone.
The basis for obeah
the Ruby a concept can be found in many Quranic verses. For example, Allah says, Allah who call it poolish a O Allah coolessay, in workI, Allah created all things and he is the agent on which all things depend
surah Zuma verse 62.
masaba masaba meaning we'll see but in ilab, if nilah and no calamity strikes, except by a laws permission, so taraba verse 11.
This concept is ingrained in our DNA,
as human beings from the beginning of our creation.
And it is expressed in our history,
research that is done, of ancient history of human beings,
they have included worship,
or instruments of worship are evident.
And only very few exceptions, disbelieve in God
a lot dresses, in the Koran
in a few verses.
And that is why
most of the Quran is dedicated to those who already believe in God.
It speaks about that belief, not seeking to convince people to believe in God. But it speaks about the belief in order to stress
the importance of what that belief in God should lead to.
So this concept, as I said, is ingrained in our DNA.
So it's not surprising to find that the idol worshippers the mushy kin, among whom the prophets rasa love was sent, did not disagree with towhead or robia. They affirmed it in general terms and Allah recorded their affirmation
as follows will insert alto man holla Kasama, Guatemala
they aku Lana Kala Kahuna, Al Aziz will alim
and indeed if you ask them, who created the heavens and the earth, they will surely say, the Almighty they all knowing created that
surah verse nine.
However, they did not affirm to eat, worship and divinity,
are hidden here
and therefore worshiped many gods.
In terms of application
of this mighty Divine Name, this comprehensive, Divine Name,
According to even McCall's four principles,
begins with adopting,
where applicable, adopting that name, that Divine Name, where it is applicable where we can
utilize it directly.
And in our case,
as Muslims in our daily prayers, we apply the Divine Name or by worshipping a law through it
by repeating it a minimum of 14 times in each unit of prayer,
which is often or more often than any other Divine Name used in our prayers. Consequently, praising our problem can be said to form the basic structure of the six positions which make up a single unit of daily prayer.
In Korea, when we're standing beginning were reciting al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. In record, we repeat three times Suhana, Rob bl, Avi.
And when we start stand back up
from record we say robina laka, Hammond,
and in every sujood
to sojos in each unit, we repeat three times. So the HANA Rob bl Allah and between the Sige this, we are also recommended to say Rob midfield three times so it permeates all of the
various positions and actions of prayer.
Each time we recite these beautiful phrases of remembrance, we should remember and reflect on what a law being our robe, actually and practically means to us.
This is the challenge that we do not just repeat Allah's Name, His Divine Name, or Rob, in all of these times, in all of these positions, etc ritualistically. Without reflection, and contemplation,
log give that to each and every one of us.
We can also directly apply the name Rob,
by raising the next generation
as they deserve to be raised.
We do so by fulfilling our roles
in raising the next generation in the best way
that we can,
in the same way that Allah raises all of his creatures
in the best way possible.
The heads of the families are respectively called
the master of the house and the robber to bait
the mistress of the house.
Because of their responsibilities as owners and masters of the whole
were expected to oversee the upbringing of the children under their care.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam reiterated this responsibility for all those in authority
and thereby applied the attributes of the Divine Name saying colloquium Brian Buccola comas ruler Nan ra at
every one of you is a shepherd, and every one of you is responsible for his or her flock.
The Imam, the leader is the shepherd responsible for his flock, the oma
the community, the man is a shepherd for his family, responsible for his flock.
The woman in her husband's house is the shepherd responsible for her flock.
The servant is a shepherd for his masters wealth, and is responsible for his flock.
And man is a shepherd over his father's wealth. And he is responsible for this flock.
Every one of you is a shepherd, who lucam Ryan, and every one of you is responsible for his or her flock
kolloquium my spoon and right at
the responsibility of raising the next generation is most obvious in the field of education.
This is the raising process
called tarbiyah in Arabic from the route are up.
It means that we have the responsibility
to integrate Islam in all levels of the secular educational systems, which we have inherited from the colonial era in such a way that we produce islamically conscious Muslim engineers, doctors, lawyers, etc. And not just professionals who happen to be Muslims.
has been defined in one of the most comprehensive definitions as the way by which a civilization conveys its cultural values to the next generation.
That's why it's so important for us to be conscious of the Islamization of education or in the way that education is delivered.
We can only change the current process if we infuse
The second are curriculums we currently have with
point one, I'm going to mention five points. point one,
the Islamic environment,
environment, which the children or young people study,
it should be islamically,
and most schools have images all over them. Every image should be conveying an Islamic message
beautifying the school using
Pictures, flowers, etc
is not sufficient.
Every image which is put
on the school in the school in the classrooms
should be serving pan-islamic Islamic
What am I saying here? I'm saying as ancients have said
one picture is worth 1000 words.
So, it is critical that we utilize the pictures, the images, which adorn our classrooms and the walls of our schools in such a way that they are serving the Islamic goals.
When children see them, it reminds them subconsciously, of their being Muslim.
principle for Islamization, all
is what is called historical relevance.
wherein we mentioned to students wherever possible Muslim contributions to the progress of human civilization right now, what is coming in the textbooks that we import from the west. All we produce in our countries based on those imported from the west
of any reference to Muslim contributions to human progress and civilization.
So, students reading that these books, though, it's not actually saying it that Muslims contributed nothing, subconsciously, this understanding is going into their heads, because they're reading about all the different other nations and mostly focused in European nations, all that they contributed, whether it's from the Greeks or from the Romans, or
in more recent times from other nation states, which appeared in Europe,
where no mention is meant is can be found of what Muslims contributed, but the Muslim civilization, which ruled the world for hundreds of years,
for nearly 1000 years in
India, 700 years in Spain,
and the Middle East Damascus, and Egypt,
Count 1000 flattery deals.
So, during that period of time, we didn't have anything to contribute.
Of course, we do. Voice we did.
However, the children who are graduating from our institute, if you ask them about
Einstein, Madame Curie,
and any of the well known scientific
they immediately recognize them
and say, yes, it was this one. He did that she did.
But if you mentioned the names of
who did amazing things in these fields, these various virtually every field that are Muslims who contributed, whether it's medicine, whether it's physics, whether it's engineering, whether it is who can speak and speak and not come to the end of
the when you mentioned these names, like Al Hassan Lebanon, Haifa,
people have no idea.
Students will question you, who is the son has salad knife? Is he a football player like Xena Dean Zaida
somebody, some famous player, they have no idea totally cut off. So what are we telling them that Islam is irrelevant?
systems which teach in this way, they're basically saying, indirectly, Islam is irrelevant. It had nothing to contribute. It's just a religion that people follow as their culture. That's it.
So we need to reignite the consciousness amongst our students of the great contributions of Muslim
scholars of the past.
What they did, we're not claiming they invented everything, you're not going to that other extreme, but no, they contributed.
They took from what was available, they brought paper from China with us where it was invented, and then made books made the first books presses and stuff, but
they took the zero from India, and made the Arabic numerals, replacing the
Roman numerals which were so clumsy and difficult to use, once science advanced.
So they took what was there and improved on it, and gave it to the world.
And we need to have our students recognize this, it gives them a sense of place. You know, we existed,
we were leaders. Well, now, we aren't, you know, many to many degrees. However,
knowledge of it is there.
We did it in the past, we can do it in the present, we can do it in the future.
The inventor of the first COVID vaccine was a Turkish Muslim. So the HANA lock, most people have no idea
that he was a Turkish Muslim.
This is the nature of media today.
It serves a purpose it serves the purpose of Western civilization, which
indirectly, that they are the only contributors to civilization, we need to change that in the minds of our students.
The third principle is
Quranic relevance, every topic that you teach in school
should be related to a Quranic verse.
As much as possible.
No doubt there may be some topics that well, I couldn't find a verse relative to Well, did you speak with the grantee
specialist in Korea to see that maybe you didn't? If you did, maybe you can still bring a verse for it from for you, from where you would least expect.
The point is that
what is taught? The Quran has said something regarding a spoken on it some ways somehow.
in our class,
in biology, or physics, or whatever, a Quranic verse
is read in Arabic, and the meaning given to the students.
And, of course, we don't want to go to extremes, wherein we now turn the class into a Tafseer class. So with that the verse which may have been
portion of a law much bigger verse or sequence of verses and we go into huge, you know, tough steer up.
We don't want to do that.
Our classes biology. So let's stick with the topic. We only bring the verse with one purpose, what is that purpose to let the students know that the Quran is relevant?
It's not something from 1400 years ago, which is totally irrelevant today.
It is not addressing anything that we are doing now. This is modern society. This is the 21st century.
No, that's not the case. The Quran is relevant to every century.
It has been relevant from its revelation, and will remain relevant until the last days of this world.
So that's the message we want to get across. We're not doing tafsir
we're just letting them know subtly. If you're able to put this in every class, this message is going into the heads of the students. Yeah, you're brainwashing them. Yeah. Okay. Call it. brainwashing. You know, we're brainwashing them with what, with good with goodness, with a good message, we can't brainwash them enough.
The fourth principle
is heavy, thick reference, the same thing with the heavy.
And most topics that you're covering, there is someplace where the Hadeeth has addressed some element or related element.
It may not have the comprehensiveness of the Quranic reference. But it's close.
You do the same thing.
And the fifth and most important principle
is Islamic morality.
For which Prophet Mohammed Al Salam was primarily sent.
In every class,
a moral message should be given
from kindergarten, all the way up to PhD.
In our systems of education,
a moral message which is universal,
should be included. Certainly not that you start the class and say, Now kids, now young people, young men and women, we're going to look at the moral message now.
It should be brought in subtly, because if it's done in that formal way, we will now look at the moral message. Kids, young people will just turn off their brains, oh, here comes the story.
So we work it into the course or the class
that is being taught, worked in subtly,
a moral message. And I'm sure you will agree with me that a child who from kindergarten, all the way up to grade 12
receives a moral message in every single class that he or she takes.
They will graduate
like the generation of the Sahaba
because this was what the prophet SAW Selim was conveying to them. Every time that he spoke to them, a moral message was coming at them every time every instance
a moral message was conveyed. And he even stressed it with underlining and highlighting saying in the model as to I was only sent like Wu Tang Mumma to complete Makarem at
the highest of moral character.
That's the essence of the message, morality,
Our Lord and Master and creator, Allah.
what's good, what's right is to worship Him alone. What's bad, what's wrong, is to worship others besides his
morality, with regards to our fellow human beings.
What's morally good is to share, to be generous, to give gifts to help others. What's immoral is to steal the property of others to lie, to cheat, etc.
And the creation around us. What's morally good is to look after it, take care of it, this world that a law has put us in, for our benefit, we should take care have it not just destroy it left and right, and, you know,
it's evil, to destroy it.
So, that moral message is the essence of Islam.
It is there in the Pillars of Islam, the pillars of Eman, it's interwoven into everything. And we should always be conscious of those moral messages and convey them
in our educational system, to the oma to the world, exposed to our systems.
And all of this, this approach, which I just spoke of,
is the way by which we can fulfill
the commandment of Allah to Allah the Quran surah arrived, verse 11, where he said, in the law Hello, I have a romantic Omen had you have a you, Bobby unfussy
Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of our people, until they change themselves.
This is the way forward
the way of change,
to earn the support of our last five Allah to change the condition of ourselves.
In terms of living, according to Taha rubia
we should also apply this comprehensive Divine Name by realizing that our hidden rubia means in our daily life
that we live truly, according to the fact that only Allah is our Lord provider and sustainer.
How many times do we turn to other people instead of a law for our needs,
when we have to make certain decisions, yet the profits are seldom offered the ultimate price for not doing so.
So been quoted of Muhammad, Allah saying on one occasion, who will guaranteed for me that he will not ask
people for anything.
And I will guarantee for him paradise
banned immediately said I will
and after that, he never asked anyone for anything.
This is an ideal.
Most of us
are so used to asking people for things it's good to think it is impossible.
How could we possibly live without having to ask people predict.
But you know, if you wanted to focus
on a path,
a path to paradise it's guaranteed by reasonable loss.
Errors it is
the offered it.
May Allah give us strength, the courage to take on such a task.
When we are others are in ill health or afraid to make personal sacrifices.
For a loss of pleasure. We should remember that only a rub
can give life and take it.
When we are worried and distressed,
we should know that only our Rob
Allah, our Lord can bring benefit and ward off harm.
And when we need something, know that only a Rob can answer our prayers.
Acceptance of Allah as the only true Rob, or Lord
is one of the conditions necessary for us to taste the sweetness of faith.
May Allah grant us this great bounty in this life. I mean, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam spoke about this saying
that vitamin E man, man robbia beleid from birth, or bill Islami, Deena ob Muhammadan azula. Whoever is truly pleased with the law, as his or her
their Lord, with Islam as their religion,
and with Muhammad sallahu wa sallam as their prophet as tasted the sweetness of faith of EMA.
Moving on to the second principle of Ibn Bob Bob,
that we should, in terms of applying
the divine next confirm where the Divine Names are unique, and inapplicable, we have to confirm that while seeking to apply,
we also have to recognize where we can't apply
and deal with it.
Now, going back to our principle of tau Haider rubia,
maintaining the unique unity of a large large
this category of tau he derived from the Divine Name or Rob is based on the fundamental concept that Allah alone caused all things to exist. When there was nothing he sustains and maintains creation, without any need from it or for it. And he is the sole Lord of the Universe, and its inhabitants without any real challenge to his serenity.
According to this category, since a law is the only real power in existence, it is he who gave all things the power to move and to change. Nothing happens in creation except what he allows to happen. In recognition of this reality. Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam used to often repeat the exclamatory phrase, La hawla wala quwata illa bill, there is no movement or power, except by laws will
any attempt to give this divine attribute to a loss of creation should also be opposed systematically.
Consequently, attributions of rubia to infallibly mounts, or leading saints represents major [???]. When you're done regards to Allah. It is the biggest possible sin
visiting the tombs of the Imams or the saints and praying to them for sustenance, help,
etc. Our prayers have shipped.
That includes even the prophets grave, Salah light it was Sunday, to which many ignorant Muslims go today and either call on the Prophet so I sell them directly for help, or ask the Prophet sallallahu wasallam to ask Allah on their behalf. Both of these actions are acts of major ship idolatry.
May Allah protect us from falling into such evil.
The third principle I live in bob bob is to have hope.
Where there is a problem
In the divine, the Divine Name Ron is in and of itself, a divine promise, which invites us to be patient, and to put our full trust in Allah.
The Prophet sallallahu wasallam, further elaborated on this concept, saying, Be aware that if the whole of humankind gathered together, in order to do something to help you, they would only be able to do something for you, which our law had already written for you.
Likewise, if the whole of humankind gathered together to harm you,
they would only be able to do something to harm you, which a law
had already written to happen to you.
Therefore, what humans conceive as good fortune, and misfortune are merely events predestined By Allah, as part of the tests of this life, there is no good luck, or bad luck. The incidence of our lives follow patterns set by a law alone.
Even within the good things of this life, there are severe tests of one's faith in God. Likewise, in the terrible events of our lives, there lies tests, as is mentioned, in the following verse in Surah, Baqarah, verse 155.
While I'm blowing up condition in mental health, he will jewelry will not consume mineral and why well, amphis surely I will test you with fear, hunger, loss of wealth, and life.
What some art, well, best ship is slavery,
and the fruits of your work, so giving glad tidings to those who are patient.
Sometimes the patterns are recognizable, as in the case of cause and effect relationship. And sometimes they're not, as in the case when apparently good results come from evil means or bad results come from good needs.
God has explained that the wisdom behind these apparent irregularities is often beyond human immediate comprehension, due to the limited scope of our knowledge.
So Allah said, and so Al Baqarah, verse 216, was entered into crochet and Ohio,
it is possible that you dislike something which is really good for you
well as and to help both Shay and well who are shorter or local.
And perhaps you will,
something which you see, good for you is in fact bad for you.
Hello, we are now moved on to latter animal, but Allah knows what is best for you, and you do not.
Apparently even events in human lives sometimes turn out to be for the best. And apparently good things which people desired turn out to be harmful.
This is real, we live it. Consequently, our realm of influence in the course of events which make up our lives is limited to mental choices between options presented to us. The ultimate results of these choices, however, are not under our control.
In other words, as is commonly said, Man proposes and God disposes that is the reality that we live.
We make mental choices
to do or not to do. But the results of these choices are not in our hands.
Although life coaches like to tell you yes, you are the master of your own destiny.
You can make it happen
when it was not supposed to happen.
Yes. Sounds good. Sounds encouraging. Yeah. Who wouldn't like to make it happen in all circles
statuses being the master of your destiny,
deciding constantly what will be and it will be, because you have decided to be sounds very
building your ego, your
sense of worth and all of this, but it's nonsense is not true.
You may decide
or you will decide. But the consequences of your decisions are not in your hands, no matter how far you run behind them and try to follow them up the ultimate consequences are out of your reach. That is the reality. We have to let go and submit to Allah are up
to the fourth principle
of living by Paul is to fear where there is a warning in the Divine Name. If it contains some form of a warning that we should fear what a law is warning us from with that name.
There is no warning of the Divine Name of Rob. That's it. However, those who don't acknowledge Allah zubia His Lordship commit the worst possible sin, that of ship which is the only unforgivable sin if one dies without repenting from it.
As the law said in the law lie
lie on the federal I you should not be here we are federal my Donna Donna kalamaja indeed a law does not forgive association of partners with him. But he forgives what is less than that, for whomsoever He wills.
In the home I use Shrek Billa for the harm of long while they heal Jenna, wha wha hoo now,
indeed, whatsoever sets up partners in worship with Allah
then Allah has forbidden paradise for it or, and the fire will be their abode.
So am I ever 72
so consequently, the apparent good fortune or good luck
cannot be caused by good luck charts, such as Rabbit's feet, four leaf clovers, wishbones, lucky numbers, zodiacal signs, etc.
Nor can misfortune because by
bad omens, omens of bad luck, like Friday, the 13th
breaking mirrors, black cats, etc.
Both are from Allah.
And the belief in charms that omens is in fact the manifestation of the grave sin of [???]. Association ism idolatry in our head, or rubia,
one of the companions of the Prophet SAW someone by the name of Aqua reported that once a group of men approached Allah's Messenger to give their allegiance to him, and he accepted the oath of nine of them, but refused to accept it from one. When they asked him why he refused their companions off, he replied, indeed, he is wearing an amulet.
The man who was wearing the amulet put his hand inside of his cloak, pulled out the arm and it, broke it and then made deals.
Prophet SAW seven said whoever wears an amulet has committed shirt.
So charm bracelets
out as we're using the Quran, like a charm
or amulet by wearing it
in small versions,
you know, they have little Korans that maybe only
a little they've written it with the microscope. And people make a big thing about it.
written with a microscope. What is that? Why do they do that for they're doing it to where the Quran put it inside of a locket in the world, believing that it is going to ward off evil.
So doing that, carrying Quranic verses on chains or pouches are hiding pictures of them on the wall to ward off evil or to bring good fortune
To that, of the practices of either worshippers they've turned the Quran into an idol for worship. Neither the prophet SAW Selim nor his companions use the plan in this fashion. The promise was ultimate said, Man, that Sufi Amrita had that my lace I mean who for whom rod, whoever innovates in this affair of ours, Islam, something which does not belong to it will have it rejected totally.
It is true that the Quranic chapters and NASS and follow up were revealed specifically for exorcism that is removing evil spells.
But the prophet SAW Selim demonstrated the proper method by which they should be used. On an occasion when a spell had been cast on him. He told Ali Ibn Abi told him to recite the two chapters, verse by verse, And when he became ill, he used to recite them on himself.
He did not write them down,
hang them around his neck, tie them around his arm around his waist, nor did he tell others to do so. Alright them
blades pouring water on it, the drinking it, bathing in it, etc, etc. He didn't tell them to do this.
also can find
by calling on a law using
We call on a lie using the Divine Name or Rob by supplicating with Rob banner our Lord supplications found throughout the Quran and the Sunnah. In fact, the most famous application most frequently used by the prophet SAW set up according to Anna Sidney Malik, his personal servant was Robin Tina dounia Hasina of ferati Hassan patina.
That's verse 201, of Surah Al Baqarah, our Lord, pop up banner, give us the best of this world,
the best of the next world and protected from the punishment of the hellfire.
comprehensive and beautiful. Robin as supplications can be found throughout the graph. Anderson, made by the prophets, the messengers, the panda pious before us. For example, the duo of Adam and Eve, after eating from the forbidden tree was Robin alumna. Oh, our Lord, we have oppressed ourselves. Well, I'm sure Nana with ohana. If you do not forgive us, have mercy on us, then a cool man in the middle.
We will be of the true losers. We should memorize these Quranic doodads and use them in our daily lives as they cover a wide range of relevant topics worth reflecting on.
barakallahu will now close our session
with our closing to using the name, prop or law. Yeah Rob banner. We know that You are our Lord master and sustainer
knowingness with a firm belief in an acting upon the oneness of Your Lordship,
and Adas to call upon you, in the best ways
in the best ways described in your book and in the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu will
help us to benefit from them and to live according to that
Yara beautify beautifiers as trust in you, and contentment in all of your decisions
made mean? So that's why they come to vahi Bearcat.
With that, we end our session
which was our 37th session
and we will now move on to
of the daily class, which is
question and answers,
many of you are eagerly waiting for?
Though these questions and answers, for the most part, are not related
to the names of the law, which is what the course is about. But as I said, I assume that the presentation
the various names of a law
is comprehensive enough that you have understood
what needed to be understood from the names and its application.
And as such, you have no questions.
And instead, you're asking the general questions. That's my positive assumption.
Hopefully, it's correct.
Okay, first, we'll begin with some of our questions from yesterday.
Nor asks, How do you pray in a house? Which has a dog?
Do you ask the people to take it out, or seek a room
or you can
avoid praying all together?
you can pray in the room in the house.
Even though there's a dog in it,
of course, the value of your prayer has been decreased because of its presence.
But if it was beyond your control, this is not your house, you didn't bring the dog in the house. And of course, Allah is understanding of our situations.
You know, what is beyond our control our, our
We're not held accountable for.
So a lie is most just most fair.
So don't worry, don't miss your prayer. Because there's a dog in the house, no matter for you to pray on time, rather than miss your prayer, due to the presence of a dog. And now some people might say, Well, okay, why don't you just leave the house, go outside the house, pray in the backyard of the house or on the lawn? Or what if it's winter?
Don't are many of these places in the northeast most of the years winter. So what do you do then?
the point is that, as we mentioned,
in our previous session, lie, you can live long enough central hours.
Allah does not burden any soul more than it can happen hand
from Selma for
question is that this is from yesterday's questions. If a husband never prays, or fast, for over 20 years, what happens to the marriage?
Nothing happens to the mark.
up some scholars might say, well,
the man for not praying
became a non Muslim. It was no longer a Muslim, because he didn't pray.
So during that period of time you were married to a non Muslim,
Muslims are not allowed to marry non Muslims.
So according to those scholars who rule that opinion, and you're married, your marriage was invalidated.
When he didn't pray,
it means that you are living in sin. married to this individual. Of course, there are factors maybe you didn't know you had no control over the situation or whatever Allah knows best.
according to those scholars, your marriage was invalidated according to other scholars know your marriage is still valid. But
He is the one who is in sin. He carries that sin. It's not on your shoulders. But if you want it to seek to get out of that marriage,
then you are
perfectly at liberty to do so. In fact, you would be encouraged to get out of that marriage. Don't be married to somebody, you know, who is bringing a loss curse on you and your family every day that he does not pray
from our students on Instagram.
I would like to know, how is the case of those who died from COVID? I've heard I've heard
of whoever dies with COVID is a market?
Well, yeah, the process element spoken about people who die in plagues, etc. as martyrs, but this is people who die
they accept allows other.
And I patiently remembering a lot.
Not people who were
cursing online in the last day, why did this happen to me? Why Am I dying this way? Why?
Obviously those people that are not dying as martyrs,
only those who
are patient with a loss destiny on themselves.
from today's questions for YouTube students,
baby, Salma smile, asks, Is it correct to say, Rob means the Creator, the Sustainer and the master of everything?
Yeah, the meaning of being the Creator
is indirectly there, the Sustainer.
And the master is more directly there. Because normally, the rub
of a circumstance or a place or a people is one who looks after them.
Not one who invents them brings them into existence. So
it may be stretching it to say it means the Creator. But it's not stretching it to say the Sustainer and the master.
The other such characteristics
from Instagram students, how do I choose between different decks and scholars wanted view
for determining what's correct or not, and becoming overwhelmed with the difference
and choosing the middle
we are in couraged, as Allah said, First Allahu Allah decree in kuntum lotta Allah, as those who know, if you don't know, you don't need to try to take it all on on yourself. You've got limited knowledge. And you become now confused, as you said, trying to figure out well, which one's the right one and which one's the wrong one, then what you do is you reach out to somebody who is knowledgeable who you respect
and let them guide you through it.
That's the best way.
We're told to ask
those who know when we don't know. There's nothing wrong with that. It doesn't make you a blind follower. Oh, you don't know. So you as somebody who knows. Let them help you. As your knowledge increases, you may come to find that, oh, he took this position. I don't really agree with that. Okay. So at that point, you can have a different opinion.
No, you don't have to continue to follow No, no, because I took him as my guide. I have to now go
Everything that he says no, no, no, no. Only Rasool Allah salado sanlam is to be taken as that kind of a guide,
where whatever he is told us, we should believe it. And we should follow it, wherever he is forbidden us wish to believe that it's forbidden and leave it
other than resume loss asylum, we don't follow
blindly in that way. The blind following is only due to assume the law. It's a law it's having that Why? Because a lot of said, My YouTube assuming Allah, whoever obeys the messenger has obeyed Allah. Can we say that about anybody else? whoever obeys aboubaker obeys Allah, whoever obeys Allah has obey the law. Whatever base Ollie, of course, she I would say yeah, but
master Muslims know.
everything is with it should be within and according to your ability.
You try to follow as best as you can, with your understanding, where you're stuck, you rely on others, you ask their help, get their clarifications, you know, what it means is that you don't have to be following somebody was just gonna say do don't do do don't do, why don't worry, you're not
knowledgeable enough to understand my explanation. So just do and don't be know that that
try and find somebody who's going to give you some explanation. They may not be able to give you the in depth, you know, full explanation of why to do and why not to do. But they give you enough that you feel Yeah, okay. I can understand that. That makes sense. Yep.
That's what's required. It's not required of you to be an Abu hanifa.
It's required of you
follow those who know when you don't know when you know, you should follow what you know, to be correct.
is dig rhombus know what that really means. Anyway, some of our last names Oh, finally, a question on the last names.
Some of my last names are joint like
I will Kareem Mujib
rock man regime,
should we understand the names as joined? Or separately, may Allah reward you?
Were the names we are saying our joint, you know, in other words, they're mentioned together.
There's no harm in understanding them separately. And then understanding the relevance of their being together.
Because without understanding the essence of their meanings, then trying to understanding to understand them together, may end up being distorted
how one can overcome from depression? How can one overcome depression
as I have mentioned on numerous occasions,
the best advice for depression are to
considering that people who are depressed
feel that there is no good in their lives.
Every everything around them is bad.
Nothing is leading to good.
They need to do see Jude ushaka
makes a Judah sugar
and then find the good while Institute
is a junior and closest position to Allah. You're closest to Allah when your institute
So, makes the Jude and
find good in your life because it's there, it's in everybody's life, no matter how bad life may be, there's good there,
we just need to find it. So once we find some good, then we find more good, we find a lot of good. And then we realize that there is good in our life.
That removes those blinders of depression.
The other thing that happens,
commonly to depressed people, and I'm not saying this rules out, you know, taking certain drugs or whatever to help deal with depression, because
maybe your state is such that that's what you require. So I'm not giving the final answer. for solving depression, I'm just giving an answer, which may be helpful.
The other thing that happens to people when they're depressed,
is that they feel they have lost control over their lives. You're just spiraling down.
You've lost control, you have no control.
So what's a good thing
to give you control, put control back into your hands again,
Why, because when you fast, you deliberately take control of your life, you deliberately decide to eat early in the morning. And you deliberately decide not to eat all day long, and deliberately decide to break your fast and eat in the evening, after sunset.
So that may seem
For the person who feels his or her life is not in their control, that may be everything.
That may be everything they needed to get out of that downward spiral.
Because fasting, on one hand, this is just psychological, psychological, that you
are making decisions. You're directly involved in decisions affecting your life,
but on so many other levels,
in fasting, because fasting also causes you
to empathize and sympathize with others, knowing that they are fasting not because they've chosen to fast, but because they have nothing to eat.
you reflect on the people around this world who have nothing to eat they you have food galore for food to throw it
This is a blessing in your life.
This is good, you have this, you have been provided with food when others have not.
So you empathize. sympathize with others. So you take your thoughts out of adjust yourself yourself, you know, I'm this I'm that this has happened to me and that has happened to me and you know, nothing good is happening to me and take yourself out of that into thinking about other people's lives. Other people, we're living far more difficult lives than you are.
That's shifting your frame of reference, but you think about
putting into another frame
and so on and so forth. This many other things that are connected to fasting, which strengthen
in an individual who becomes depressed.
This is combined with
the sudo, the sugar, etc. Not just by itself.
In terms of
questions from the
youtubers, YouTube students
The Columbus is asking again another point.
Regarding the second point you mentioned, I think even the Islamic school should be teaching historical relevance. Of course,
what I gave
was in the place where noise law is available.
The school causes some in Islamic school, meaning that the owner is a Muslim administration are Muslims, children in school are Muslims.
But what's being taught there? what's actually going on there? It's not really Islam. So some schools, it becomes most important to infuse in that the curriculum of those schools, in the administration of those schools, in the owners of those schools, and understanding that education is a bad
educating, raising a new generation,
conscious of Allah is a vida is worship of Allah. And that's how the old school should look at its
purpose. It is a way and a means to worship Allah.
While serving Omar
question, my family says that you're not allowed to wear hijab, but that's my dream. In this dunya, what do you think?
as long as you don't have control of your circumstance,
you're obliged to obey those in authority over you.
And they will carry this if
you have the intention, you have the desire, Allah rewards you
for having that intention and desire, maybe even more than many who are wearing the job,
they should know that
understands your circumstance, and rewards you according to your ability, I suppose I sell myself in normal armel Binya
deeds are judged are weighed,
rewarded according to their intentions.
So what is outside of your control? Allah does not hold you accountable for have that intention, keep it strong.
If you get an opportunity, even to put it on when your parents are not aware, or
in locations that your parents don't know, etc, and you do it when you can.
Even if it's only for
a few minutes, or an hour
or whatever, only once a week or whatever, whatever opportunity you get.
And you're rewarded for the whole time that you had that intention.
Regarding the second point you mentioned, okay, what is your opinion, Nigeria where I was born, there are no such things like Islamic schools
that teach historical relevance, these kinds of things.
There needs to be
you're born in Nigeria, you have the knowledge, you have the understanding, you know, now it's important than what is on you, is to carry that message back to Nigeria,
in any way that you can convey the message, but only one I need to know is to
convey whatever you've learned from me even if it's only one first of the crap. So here's the message. I've conveyed the message to you. And you need to convey the message to your people and beyond.
Madeira tajudeen asks, people usually recite the Quran and give the reward for
dead people. This is not permissible, isn't it?
Besides in the Koran, asking that the reward be given to those who are dead.
This is not true.
It's become a common practice and become a business for some
parties decide to subscribe, etc. They'll go from house to house besides and be paid.
good in the sense that you can make money product, but is it pleasing to Allah?
For those who have died
we can benefit them through our class.
We can give some
on their behalf. We can make heads or override they didn't
ask the Hajj and Umrah reward word go to them. This is acceptable.
Muna asks, Is writing poems about love, life struggles, etc. permissible?
Yes, it's permissible. If one writes the poems, you know, with some Islamic themes that makes it not only permissible but rewardable.
Also is drawing mosques or Rina of renown places like Taj Mahal permissible?
Yes, it's permissible to draw
images of mosques, renown places like Taj Mahal, Taj Mahal is a mother Leia.
though it's beautiful,
it's a historical place
islamically it should be removed.
It's a great grand monument, built over a grade in the processor lamp forbade the building of structures over grapes.
I've always asked, please advise,
good place for young Muslim family to live in Turkey, moving from the UK? Well, the number of people are moving there now from different parts of the world
seems to be very promising. The leader of Turkey, Erdogan seems to be
a defender of the faith speaking, when others are not speaking, more so than anyone else. So we should I could assume that life in this country
idre pleasing to Allah.
The last question
is that of Zion, the Shah?
I could not motivate my sister's children towards the as I could not spend time with them.
As they were staying in their home, please make dua for them.
And may Allah show them the right path.
In sha Allah, we ask Allah to show them
the right path
to guide them to bring others in their lives would take them closer to Allah
on the path.
Sir optimal stopping.
