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.
This is the 39th session
in which we'll be looking at the name
which is the 56th name,
roughly translated as the majestic and the vastly kind.
It is only mentioned twice in the grab.
Surah Hood, verse 73 rahmatullahi wa barakatuh la qu al al Beatty in Hamid done. Majeed.
Allah's mercy and blessings be upon you members of the Prophet's family. Indeed, he is the most praiseworthy and the majestic.
In terms of the meaning Majeed comes from the trilateral route, meme jeem dal and is derived from the Geron merged magic Dune, which has two root meanings to be plentiful, and to be expansive.
Taken from the phrase jet to DARPA
if you give an animal a lot of feed, subsequently, Majeed also came to me in kind and generous, like the adjective Kareem, and magic came to me in kindness. This is according to the linguist as a judge. Majid is the intensive form of the present private support Masjid,
according to the file pattern common to the Divine Names.
Relative to Allah, this Divine Name al Majid means that he is himself most noble. His deeds are most beautiful, and he is plentiful in whatever he gives, is extremely good to his creatures, which is evident in all of the blessings that he pours upon them.
Furthermore, he is great and glorious in his assets, as well as metaphorically the greatest in his dignity,
who gives liberally and bountifully He is the most bountiful and the benefits and
is related to some other
It's closely related in meaning to three Divine Names In fact, Allah gelila, the majestic
Allah Karim the generous and Wahab the Restore. Alma Jade is majestic and beautiful in both his qualities and actions. He treats his creatures most generously, and bestows on them gifts beyond their expectations, demonstrating his infinite greatness, which deserves all praise in Africa, Hamid Majid
the Koran is Majid.
Allah has described his own revealed words the Quran, using this same Divine Name
of well Quranic Majeed, faff by the majestic and glorious core.
That's your coffers one.
The Koran is fundamentally noble and majestic, because it is the words of Allah.
Not a single one of its words, nor its message has been changed in over 1000 years, 1400 years in fact,
while they changed and continue to change individuals, and nations completely, until today,
its nobility and majesty also lie in the ability of the gym or humankind to produce a book similar to it, or even a single chapter like one of its chapters. As the law said, say if humankind and the jinn gathered together in order to produce another correlate similar to describe, they could not produce another like it, even if they assisted each other.
That's where I miss Roberts at it.
They couldn't create such a comprehensive book, similar in its legal system.
Its prohibitions and permissions systems of worship, economic systems, etc. nor could they create a book of such literary excellence and eloquence, nor one containing scientific wonders for every age, nor one which God promised to protect for over 1400 years, completely unchanged. In natrona, zelner vichara we're in LA who the half is owed, indeed are revealed the reminder
and I will be its protect Sora ledger, verse nine.
The majesty and witness of the crime also lies in the fact that a lot elevates whoever lives religious then socially according to it, and he debases whoever rejects it and sees it as backward, archaic and irrelevant.
Allah throne is also Majid. Allah has described his throne as being majestic and glorious.
This is in Surah Al Burrows, verse 15.
In the authentic recitations of Hamza al kisai and koloff. Ultimate GED is recited with a castra instead of Alma g do with a dumb according to the most well known recitation of Huff's from awesome, and the remaining six most authentic recitals
that would change the meaning of the verse to the glorious Lord of the Throne, if it's red with the Dhamma, instead of the lord of the glorious road, with the castra and although in common understanding the kursi and the Arash are one in the same, actually they are not
according to the Sunnah, in such matters, of course, regarding the unseen world today, we can only depend on the profit so I sell them for clarification and not our imagination.
According to the following statement of the profits that I would sell them the currency is not only distinctly different from the throne, Arash,
but it is also incredibly smaller than it allows messenger was authentically reported to upset
the seven heavens in relation to the footstool is that of a ring thrown into a boundless desert.
And the superiority of the throne, over the footstool is like that of the boundless desert in relationship to the reign.
Yet the law states in the Koran, that the currency encompasses the heavens and the earth, once the accuracy was somewhat
this footstool extends over the heavens and the earth. So how great and glorious is the last road. There is in fact the biggest and greatest element in the last creation.
Moving on to the application, according to emin bottles four principles, the first of which is to adopt where applicable
this divine name Allah Majeed, meaning the vastly kind is among the names which can be directly applied on a human scale.
Consequently, as a law is vastly kind and giving innumerable gifts to both believers and disbelievers,
to the righteous and unrighteous. We should likewise be extra generous in giving gifts to those around us.
Whether whenever the opportunity presents itself above or error related that the prophet SAW Selim instructed us to give frequently saying,
to had out, to have to give gifts amongst yourselves and build mutual love amongst yourselves.
This form of gift giving in society spreads love and affection among the members of the community. The prophet SAW his alum encourage the believers to begin their gift, giving
With their neighbors, sharing and giving gifts builds a sense of family love, which creates a wholesome environment, raise children, and promote mutual care and respect. Are bizarre related that on one occasion the prophets I seldom said to him or a Buddha. When you cook soup, add more water to it and feed your neighbors.
Islam also stresses generosity and kindness to guests. And the prophets I seldom said
one who is not hospitable to guests, does not truly believe in the law and the last day
the most logical way of providing food to guests is by preferring them over ourselves and our families in spite of our own need.
allotments special mention of the answer. Medina converts in the Quran due to that noble quality, saying, Well, you see Runa Allah and fusi him well cannot be him kasasa
and they gave preference over themselves, even though they were themselves in need. It's tour and harsher was nine.
The reason for the revelation of this verse is that a man from the answer accepted a guest sent to him by the prophet SAW Selim, even though he only had just enough food for his children.
So he and his wife devise the plan to put their children to bed early without any dinner, and give the guests all of their food.
After the guests began eating, he would go to the lamp that was lighting up the room, pretending to fix it, and accidentally turn it off.
Then he would go and sit with his guests in the dark, pretending to eat along with him.
When he and the guests join the Messenger of Allah The next morning, the province Arsalan said to him, Allah is pleased with what both you and your wife did last night.
And simultaneously, the previously mentioned verse was revealed.
The other way by which generosity embodied in the Divine Name and Majeed can be applied is to generously give in charity,
charity of the rich charity of the poor etc, from all sides ways means
Hakeem, even his arm quoted the process alumna, saying, the best charity is that given when one has surplus wealth, and the upper hand is better than the lower, but begin giving charity with your dependence,
when one has surplus wealth, meaning the wealthy
the wealthy, giving charity is among the best forms of charity or in your life, to give charity, when you have wealth, you have the means etc. This is considered best because at that time, in spite of the fact that you have the wealth, the feelings of miserliness becomes strong, you work hard for your wealth,
why should you just just give it away like that, let them work for it also, like you did, you know, you find 1,000,001 excuses, why not to give even though you have all the wealth, now,
the upper hand is better than the lower hand, because the upper hand is the hand which gives and the lower hand is the hand which receives
that means that the benefactor is better than the recipient with regards to acts of charity. Begging is forbidden in Islam except under exceptional circumstances.
The promise is seldom said that one who begged without real need will come before a law on the Day of Judgment, without skin on his or her face.
The charity should be to relatives. And why you and Hakeem in his arm stated that the promise as Alan said, afternoon saddam sadhaka to Allah The Rahim, Al cash and cash
of the Lusaka sadaqa Allah the Russian Alka chef chef
The best charity is that given to a resentful relative to give charity to someone holding rancor towards you requires a great effort of faith. Consequently the rewards are greater.
This Hadeeth elaborates the Quranic verse,
in which Allah said the good deed and the evil deed are not equal. So repel the evil with what is better than the one between whom and you there was emnity will be like a close friend. A lot of stole has an article and say, its viability acid by the lady by Nicola bainer. Who
can actually Yun humming.
to the hostile relative is better than giving charity to a friendly relative, because it involves overcoming the donors pride and ego and submitting to its enemy, humility. However, the reward is greater.
It is a loss elevation of one status, both in a loss of sight as well as in the sight of the wise among creation. As the Prophet Solomon said, Manta awaba Allah Rafa, a law will raise the status of whoever humbles himself to other human beings, for his sake.
Furthermore, in being charitable to hostile relatives, one fixes broken family ties, which itself as a huge reward,
charged in poverty is unique and special, I will read related as a process Allah was asked which chart is best or messenger of Allah, and he replied, after luzzatto party, June motel,
what the demands are all
the best charity is that given with great difficulty by one who is destitute, and you should begin giving charity with your own descendants, sorry your own dependents.
ahuriri also narrated
that on one occasion the messenger of Allaah said to them, one Durham given in charge, it supersedes 100,000 Durham's, also given in charity,
one of the companions asked and how was that oh messenger below, he replied. A very wealthy man took out a portion of his wealth, which amounted to 100,000 their hubs and gave it away in charity. Another man who had only two Durham's took one Durham and gave it away in charity. Therefore, he gave away half as well.
As a result of this reality which surprised I'll send them vividly illustrated. He strongly advised us not to consider any chargeable or good deed so insignificant that it's not worth doing. I boozer related at the processor limit said that Khurana min ellmau roofie Shay.
Alo and tell ka haka we watch in bulk. Do not belittle any good deed, even if it is only meeting your Muslim brother or sister with a cheerful face.
The Divine Name al Majid invites us to be generous whenever possible, regardless of how insignificant our gifts may seem.
It is all about intention and good character. Good intentions are always rewarded by law. And frequent giving will build a generous character, which is one of the highest moral character traits, which Prophet Muhammad SAW Salaam was sent specifically to teach us.
Charity of the middle class can be seen in a narration from our war era, in which he stated that the routes are seldom said the best chart is to give while you are healthy and covetous, hoping for wealth and fearing poverty.
Do not delay until your soul reaches your throat to say this is for so and so. And that is for so and so. For it is already for so and so.
The higher spiritual quality of generosity is developed when
On overcomes greed and stinginess, there is no real generosity and giving at the point of one's death, when our wealth will go to others whether we like it or not.
Moving on to the second principle of women batal. To confirm were unique and in applicable. This Divine Name al Majid is unique and inapplicable in its limitlessness. A law's generosity doesn't run out, because the whole of creation is is. Everyone else who is generous, has their limits. Because anthropods don't give away all their wealth, and live the remainder of their lives as poppers. Consequently, we need to confirm a laws unique kindness and nobility, which encompasses all of his creatures, and give thanks in appreciation. showing gratitude is the foundation of our faith in God
and a major reason for living comfortably balanced and happy lives.
more grateful we are the more blessings we are granted. And the more contented we become in Chicago.
As the Lord said, so Abraham were seven. If you give thanks, I will certainly grant you more. The promise Our solemn while accepting from our backer, the donation of all of his wealth, and from almost half of his wealth, forbade others from doing likewise telling them that it would be better for them to leave their family well taken care of, than to leave them destitute and forced to beg for their survival.
Additionally, we should always be vigilant to recognize and reject any claims, which give divine generosity to human beings, regardless of their status.
The third pillar of application according to Ibn batal is to find hope, where there is promise.
The Divine Name Alma G, is a name of promise that the law will grant us abundant good when the time is right. Regardless of how difficult our current situations and circumstances may appear to be
a way out has already been destined.
We only have to be patient, and remain steady in our worship and our work.
Our hope is reinforced by praising Allah regularly throughout every day.
There are innumerable supplications and phrases of praise, which the prophet SAW Selim taught us, we should learn them and use them regularly. It is worth noting that the verses and chapters of the Quran identified by the prophet SAW them as the greatest are those filled with praise Allah, I two courtesy, the greatest verse, so as last equivalent to 1/3 of the Quran Surah Al Fatiha, the greatest chapter of the Quran. All of them are filled with the last praise from beginning to
Abu mama quoted the prophets Allah saying
whoever recites the verse of the footstool ayatul kursi, after every prescribed prayer, there will be nothing standing between him or her and their entry into paradise, but death.
Only death is stopping them from enterprise. Such great rewards for seemingly simple deeds are surely from a loss great, magnificent generosity,
which cannot be further counted or calculate. It is a mercy from him to provide so many doors and gates to his paradise, all of which only require our sincerity as the key to open them.
That is the essence of the challenge. And that is all Alas, Allah asked us to do. He clearly said, well, ma Omu Illa Allah with a lot more for the Sinhala Deen, though all they were ordered to do is to worship Allah alone, sincerely devoting their religion to him as people of true faith.
Sincerity is the core of our faith, if last makes the religion real and meaningful. Without it, we become empty shells. The Living Dead zombies roaming this world.
Internally, we may look externally we may look like something, but internally we are nothing.
Nothing is living inside our empty shells. The million dollar question is, when will we wake up to this reality and act on it? Forever we die without waking up. We have lived our whole pathetic lives in there.
This is why the simple statement of the prophets I send them regarding the declaration of faith is so powerful while raising so many questions in the minds of the insincere. Whoever says lie in and Allah.
The halal Jenna whoever says Thailand law will enter Paradise. Most of us never heard the other similar statement which surrounds us and the maid, which completely clarifies all the many questions in one instance where it says Lyla and Allah sincerely from his or her heart, will enterprise. Consequently, the way is crystal clear, simple, uncomplicated and easily followed if and only if we submit and sincerely accept God into our lives, while rejecting the false gods of this world of our own making, and truly believing and understanding that we will never find peace in this life by worshipping them. As the law said alladhina amanu othmar en Luca Lobo visit guerrilla.
Allah basically Allah He talked to my in no clue.
Those who have faith and whose hearts find peace, in the remembrance of Allah it is only in the remnants of Allah, that hearts find rest. And as the prophet SAW Selim reiterated Teresa Abdullah dinar, what they are, the worship pro of the dinar and the deram will always be wretched, alive, wasted in the worship of the almighty dollar, the job, the car, the house, the entertainment, the holiday, is merely another victory for Satan and his pride German battle to drag as many souls from humankind and the jinn into the Hellfire along with him. May Allah help us to wake up before it is too late.
The fourth and final pillar of application
as suggested by Imam Ibn batal
from the 12th century,
is for fear where there is a warning.
The Divine Name al Majid is a promise of divine generosity, consequently does not contain any directly stated warnings. However, there are two indirect warnings implied in such names of kindness and generosity, one for those who hoard and the other for those who are ungrateful.
The first warning regarding hoarding can be found in the Quran itself. Verse 183, Allium wrong. Those who greedily withhold from others, the bounties which Allah has bestowed on them, think that it is good for them. No, it is bad for them, for it to be tied around their necks, on the day of judgment.
through Divine Names, like Al Wahhab, and and Majeed encourages its followers to generously spend their wealth and to avoid hoarding. Because money taken out of circulation prohibits a segment of the society from its benefits. A sama reported that the process element said spend and do not keep count less the law keeps count against you. And do not hoard less the law withhold from you, but only spend what you are able.
In Islam wealth is considered to be is not considered to be the absolute property of humans to do with as they please, as it is in capitalism, but a trustworthy temporary loan to them from a law for the benefit of both the individual and society. They are rewarded for what they use constructively and punished for what they waste.
The wealth of the society is basically a combined product of human toil and sweat. For example, in the case of gold jewelry, the goal had to be discovered through
Then it had to be extracted from the earth, in mines,
transported and refined by human labor. And the end product, Julie had to be created by skilled craftsmen.
It is combined human labor, that which gives value to such items. Consequently, the Islamic principle of Zakah was instituted to ensure the continual circulation of wealth. surplus wealth, which is hoarded or saved, is gradually eaten up by the car. While wealth which is kept in circulation by investment or purchase is generally exempted from Zakah.
However, expenditure should begin with those who are one's primary responsibility. That's the prophet SAW, Selim was quoted by Abu Mama, as saying, All son of Adam,
to spend your surplus wealth is better than to hold it. So you will not be accused of miserliness. But begin with those in your family.
spending on the family has even been given precedence over spending for jihad, in order to prevent harm to the family, by those who in their enthusiasm, neglect and even harm their families. As you mentioned in the case of aboubaker, on one occasion, he gave away all of his wealth, when support was needed, for jihad
is often held up as as the best example for those who seek to motivate others to sacrifice for their wealth, sacrifice their wealth for Allah sake,
or whatever, don't have God That said, the Messenger of Allah commanded us to give him charity, at a time when we had some wealth. So I said to myself, today, I will surpass aboubaker.
So I brought half of my wealth, and a lot of men messenger asked me, What have you left for your family? He replied, I replied, a similar amount. I will backer then came with all of his wealth, and the promises and I'm asked him, What have you left for your family or a backer? you applied. I've left the law and His Messenger for that.
I that is, Omar, photog said, I will never beat him at anything.
However, it should be understood that it's while Islam considers our workers act exceptional, it was an exception allowed by the province or set up at a time of dire need, and not the rule. When others tried to do the same. He prohibited them and insisted that they spend on their families instead, for example, sided but I'd be what costs I'd said, the year of the conquest of Mecca, I fell ill and was at the point of death. When the prophet SAW Selim came to visit me, I said, almost drove a lot. I have an abundance of wealth, and no one to inherit me except my two daughters. Now I'd bequeath all of my wealth in the way of Allah.
He replied, No.
I inquired, then a half. He again replied No. And asked, then a third, he said, of 1/3. But even 1/3 is still too much.
That to leave your heirs free from what is better than leaving them for to beg from people. You will be rewarded for everything you spend, seeking allows pleasure even for the morsel of food you place in your wife's mouth.
On the basis of this statement, Muslims are allowed to make a will, which we call with sia, for a maximum of 1/3 of their wealth to be given to those who would not normally inherit from them. Those who will inherit are excluded by Abu mama statement. In the air on the pilgrimage. I heard a lot messenger saying his sermon. Certainly Allah has given everyone possessing a right to inherit his right. So there should be no bequest.
Made for an actual err.
The second warning
is regarding in gratitude that we have spoken about before. Allies explicitly wonders of the consequences of in gratitude saying, Lancer khardungla Xena como Kamala, in
California, in either be less studied. If you give thanks, I will certainly grant you more. But if you aren't grateful for my favorites, my punishment will be terrible. A law most generous has equated in gratitude with a state of disbelief,
as it is the common foundation for rejecting God.
Thus, we must be
aware of the dangers of in gratitude, which can creep upon us without us realizing it can come in a variety of different forms beginning with the question why, why me?
When we question a lot of other and destiny, we are indirectly ungrateful for what Allah has chosen for us. We can't accept that it is what is best for us. And we quickly forget the many times we thought what happened was bad It turned out to be good.
This is why the products are selling regularly did subdued a sugar which has spoken about on numerous occasions
the gratitude prostration and why we should all remember to do likewise.
With that, the closing this session
with you are
calling on law
using this name.
we know that you are vast and majesty, might an honor.
Help us to read, understand and act upon your glorious book and make us of those who glorify and praise you regular yamaji Majid make us kind and respectful to others, and grant us generous souls.
inspire us to reflect upon your many science in our lives. Yeah, Majid bestow on us honor through leaving Islam, and grant us the honor of gazing upon you in paradise.
li walakum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
With that, we now shift to our third segment
in which we'll be looking at
the q&a, questions and answers.
And in sha Allah,
we have enough time hopefully to do the questions from yesterday that we run short of time, as well as those from today.
from yesterday's filtered questions, I should from UK asked, do we have to say yeah, Allah before invoking any other name?
That's what I'm doing.
reminding us of the law,
but not intending to indicate that it must be said before. Any other name.
I heard from someone for the first time and couldn't find the evidence. Yeah. All right.
There is no evidence.
from yesterday's questions asked, when we are involved in Dawa people ask us about why Allah gives
diseases and disasters.
Is it sufficient to say our limited mind can't grasp the wisdom behind the decision of a law?
Yes, we can say that. We can give them examples
like children, going to the dentist
expecting a good
experience, for the first time when we go
to the dentist and his white coat, or her white cloak,
big smile on their face, they give us a lollipop, we suck on the lollipop.
And now they're gonna go to work.
Up until that point, we're happy with them. Life is good.
But as soon as they have to inject
novocaine into our
gums, to deaden our teeth, so that they can remove a tooth, or they can fill a tooth or whatever. And the drilling starts and
these people who we thought,
were such kind and generous human beings now became our enemy. We scream, we cry, don't ever want to go back to the depths.
Why would our parents take us to the depth.
Of course, they can't explain that they're taking us to the dentist not to get hurt. It's not their intention
that we be harmed.
But that little harm that harm that we of course, we look at it as big, that harm is small relative to the greater harm that would come if we didn't get our teeth
drilled or filled or whatever.
So we are like those kids, you can explain to the kids too young to grasp what's going on.
Likewise, we with the trials in our life can't work it out. We can't figure it out.
So we just see tragedies, we say why
we see thefts, murder, why? Why did God let these things happen?
So this issue of evil in the world,
when God is all powerful,
and all good.
becomes a source
of this belief in God. For those who can't, like the little kid, accept,
if it works was explained to us why that dentist was a good person, in spite of the fact that they hurt us.
I'm from Hammad name. This we have today's questions. Is there any way to know if Allah has forgiven us?
Well, if we are sincere, and are seeking forgiveness, we have to believe that he will forgive us.
Now, if after we've sought his forgiveness, we go back to doing the same thing, in fact, even worse,
then we can be more or less certain that he didn't forgive us. Because there was something wrong with our seeking forgiveness in the first place. Which led us to go back and do the same thing over again and even worse.
But if it's diminishing or if we managed to stop altogether, which is
what is basically required, then if we do so, we can be certain that is forgiveness. That is the one way of absolute certainty.
ruling on amulets ruling on amulets
the processor I met said, Whoever
wears that an amulet
has committed check.
Now I know people say well, what about Quranic amulets?
No. It's the same thing.
Whether you use an amulet made out of a stone, some kind of a, you know,
precious stone or whatever or silver and whatever. You put it on your arm.
But around your neck, tied around your waist,
Whether you use
calling on the gym,
all kinds of crazy stuff. You put it inside of a locket and you wear it.
Or instead, you put Koran inside of the lock.
And you wear it, tie it on your arm, tighter on your waist, whatever.
What's the difference?
But in both cases, you are
believing that your act of wearing
that amulet will protect you from harm. Does it have that authority? No.
Never gave us or instructed us to do anything like that.
And he is the one in authority. He was in the best position to tell us do or don't.
And instead he just told us don't do
in general terms. Whoever wears an amulet didn't say an amulet of ship. Whoever wears that amulet has committed
because they're dependent on this.
This thing of their own making.
Is there any heaven for the animals?
If no, many humans mistreat animals,
it's the test of humans.
But why do animals suffer that?
The point is that
will turn to dust.
is there for that.
Except for the fact that Allah in demonstrating is complete justice
will bring the goat without horns,
who was knocked off the mountain by another goat with the horns back, bringing them both back so that the goat without horns will knock off that go to the horns of the mountain.
will do it to demonstrate the completeness of His justice to his creatures.
Now, what happens to an animal like the woman who sat and described who tied up a cat
until it died?
Kappa was suffered.
And the woman ended up being put in Hellfire for it. This was a test for
this was a part of the test of this life.
Question I request from Mohammed Abdullah
said I request you please make a picture post on Twitter regarding Uighur Muslims. So we can share with friends family colleagues, this important issue inshallah.
put up a quote
for Uighur Muslims in support of their situation
help and support from the oma
some bad Zubair asks
Is it appropriate to call
the judge in the courtroom? My Lord
it is traditional in western courts to use that phrase
and when they use
Did my lord they didn't mean God.
Because Lord, can be used for God or can be used for somebody in authority, person I position to refer to them as my Lord.
Similarly, in Arabic we have Rob battle bait,
the mistress of the house, Rob bull bait
the master of the house.
it is permissible,
though it's not in Muslim custom and tradition to use that phrase in courts.
Muslim woman there can Muslim women cut their hair?
Yes, they can cut their hair, as long as they don't cut their hair
in such a way that they can easily be mistaken for men.
That's the point.
They don't cut their hair and styles which are known for men just like men shouldn't cut their hair and keep their and waist looking like females.
Amanda Sullivan said the law of curses. The woman who
appears like a man just as like a man.
And the man who appears like a woman just as like the woman.
They're cursed by law.
from David, David asked, I was speaking with a non Muslim. And they asked me what is wrong
with pagans and paganism?
How would you answer this?
What is wrong with pagans and paganism? Well, what's wrong with paganism is that people are worshipping other than God.
That's what's wrong. A loss states that clearly in the plan in all the problems are solved and emphasize that people were called from paganism to Islam.
And this is what Jesus did also.
This is what Moses did. And all of the prophets before.
Wherever in the world they were sent. They were sent to call people from paganism to the worship of God. Hello.
From our Instagram students, can men and women just be friends? Friends? I think we took that question already yesterday,
or the day before?
We talked about it. Amanda, I don't think we need to repeat it.
Having the handle?
How can we use a last name on a daily daily basis? Due to the circumstances?
Which we are in?
I hope this makes sense. How can we use the last name on a daily basis, we you know, when we make prayers we're using the last day
when we make do us leaving the home coming back in the home, before eating. And when you finish eating, when all these in all of these do us virtually all of them, their last name is being mentioned.
And, you know, it's not about repeating a particular name over and over and over again.
Remembering a last name remembering a law
is, you know,
doing whatever we're doing in a way which is pleasing to Allah, avoiding things which are displeasing to him.
All of that involves taking a last name
I brush up
what is your view about using non Islamic interest free banks for Muslim?
Their main system is working with Riba Well, they are set aside
of their banking practice
which doesn't involve
interest, it's interest free
for you to work with them, and this is what is available to you. It's permissible.
Of course, the Muslim,
if you have to choose between them, and a bank, which was set up as a Muslim bank and Islamic bank from the beginning, or it was turned over into a Muslim bank after being
an in interest based bank in the past, then that is best, that's where Muslims should focus. Those are the bands that they should become regular customers are with such
Instagram, is it allowed for a Muslim woman to teach men online, non Muslim subjects?
As long as
she fulfills the Islamic requirements of
Jesus dress, if she's going to be visit visible,
then it is permissible.
My question has not been answered. I asked is the Quran a creation or not? Oh,
I didn't see that question.
It was presented.
the word of Allah
is on created.
As a laws, word allies aren't created.
What comes from him,
which is his
So his word is
now going into the details
of how it is that is where it is uncreated. We don't go there. This is the house.
When Mr. Malik, in one of his classes,
asking about the house of Allah, concerning how it is that the law
Central's above its role.
And Mr. Malik, responded by just saying simply
that the circling is known, linguistically, we know what it means, etc.
How it is,
we don't know.
And then instruct them to remove that individual from his class,
obviously, must have asked this type of questions time and time again. So my mother reached the point where he said better tap this person, not attend my class than attend my class because it was just a troublemaker, creating confusion
from Instagram, isn't permitted permissible to celebrate a birthday.
celebrating birthdays should not be done.
It was not the way of the prophet SAW its alum
and his companions.
And for the first 300 years after the time of scribes, nobody practiced it began
in the fatimid Shiite
state governed Egypt
This is where it began from. From there, it's spread. It's carried and spread people, people like celebrations and this became like a good excuse to celebrate.
So celebration of the profits birthday together and after that, you know, in time with colonialization, etc.
celebration of birthdays coming from Europe etc that entered into our practices and then became a norm. But even in Christianity, celebration of Jesus's birthday Christmas, supposedly
didn't start for some almost 300 years after the time of Jesus.
After Jesus was lifted up, people didn't celebrate.
Jews didn't celebrate it. It was understood to be a pagan practice. In the Bible, only the pagan rulers celebrated their birthdays
birthday celebrations. Was pagan.
Shawn, Mohammed, is there a particular there a time to cut one's fingers? fingernails and toenails? No,
it's mentioned that, you know, the Sahaba
i think is to do so at least once a month. Now that's like the maximum they will leave those rulings. x rooming for
Fridays, when becomes the major day of cleaning up everything. We take the bath for do mine everything that this is good, a good time, but it's not obligatory to do so.
And in some books I've seen coming out of subcontinent there are rules as to
where and which finger to begin with should be begin on your right hand.
To begin with your middle finger, then you go through your other fingers. Then you go to your left hand. You continue like this from the right to the left.
No rules. No.
It is true the process whenever we did things used to prefer the right over the left.
Step into the masjid or the right.
When you're doing good throw in your shoes with your right foot. Throw your clothes with your right hand. Yes, General preference of the process but not a rule. Do you want to put your left foot stepping in the masjid?
If you want to put the left hand into your clothes first and nothing wrong with that you can do it. If you want to put on your left
shoe first no harm. Do you want to jump into your shoes with both feet at the same time? perfectly okay.
So we don't need to make rules where there are no rules. This is the recommendation based on the
common practice of the Prophet sallahu.
Question by a jazz Oh Hassan can we color are here and beard black.
Some scholars said you good.
And others said
no you should.
Any other color.
It's all agreed that it can be if you want to go blonde, you know, have brown hair, red hair, whatever. No problem.
But black because on one occasion, when a man was being taken away, to be buried, washed and buried.
Inside science all that
is here beard everything was white. He said dye his
hair and beard.
But don't use black
scars took this to be just for that man. It's his case, not a general rule.
But he encouraged the dyeing of hair and beard. Today, people have issues about that, oh, why are you dyeing your hair and beard and
why is it so no problem? told the components to do it die you hear diabetes.
Of course scholars explained that well.
This at that time, and especially because the fact that Muslims were, you know, in the early stages building themselves they wanted to show themselves to be strong and very ill and so on. So they
died all the way.
Okay, that's their explanation for the cause this
promises an observed said die you're here diagnosis this was the sooner he instructed so this is better than leaving you're here to go all right all
the process lm advice then surely
okay you don't want to use black fine if the black you got all the other colors of the rainbow. I'm not suggesting you do green and purple and select this but at least the accepted norms. It's from this una
says the target markets.
What are moms and what are their responsibility for Oh my goodness.
That's a whole story. But
that's a lecture in and of itself.
About the 12 demands.
The 12 demands
So technically speaking, you only need to take about
put them aside, carry on. Without the club the mountains of a walker was fine. No two months. Omar was fine No 12 months of man was fine. No doubt Tommy mom's Ali was fine, no two arguments.
So we obviously don't need to have the monks
pulling our music in Islam, I'm a psychology student. We have music therapy, etc.
if the if the music is singing,
singing is permissible in Islam.
It depends on how the singing takes place.
Saying of grown women,
for men being entertained by the singing as a solemn forbade
other than that women for women,
men can be singing can be listened to by women and men.
As long as the singing is not some, you know, also mixed with music from musical instruments that are forbidden. It was just from the Duff and, you know, drum like instruments cetera. Okay. So there may be something process, Allen said when they're having, you know, marriage, whatever ceremony whatever. He said, you know, where are they seeing girls
go where the Duff printed off
in guards. So we know that this is part of Islamic tradition, which was culture to certain degree and, and given up the approval of the process.
So where we keep things within the bounds that are
obviously permissible, then there should be no problem.
My husband smokes a lot. I want to know whether it's allowed or not.
Smoking is hot.
Smoking is hot.
When we know in Islam,
that whatever is known
to cause death, to kill somebody.
for you to take it knowing full well that it can cause your death
likely to cause your death.
A law clearly stated in the crime law to cool the idea.
Don't throw yourself with your own hands into destruction.
And that's exactly what it is.
And there are a number of books that have been written by really leading scholars you know, condemning smoking proving that it is
Killing is haram. Therefore smoking is haram
if A equals B, and B equals C, and a must equal C.
Faisal Addy. What about camel urine? Taking as medicine? Some scholars say yes, some say no. Well, we have the Hadith clearly in Buhari
that people came to the brothels complaining of stomach problems. And he told them to mix camel urine with
camel's milk, have them drink it, they drank it and they were well
and from this the fit scholars have pointed out
kuttanad are ruled that
the urine of animals which we can eat
is not considered to be nudges or
five years ago, my marriage, but still I have no love for my wife, she's not ready to divorce, what should I do?
get the help of your local Imam,
your people have knowledge in your area.
Take their advice.
This is what I would suggest.
Because you know, your case is the case, which requires
discussion. It's not the
do this, don't do this matter.
want to divorce your wife, Islam permits you to divorce, even if she doesn't want to divorce. That's the fact.
the permission is there, if you decide to do so, but my advice is that you take the advice of those who you respect the knowledgeable people of your area, etc. You know as to
what to do.
Another question from Instagram students is the stock market money allowed in the
stock market? You know, me engaged in the stock market, technically speaking is permissible, if what you're buying stocks in is itself permissible.
And of course, you buy stocks, when the prices are low, and you sell them when the prices are high.
That's the general principle and that's permissible to buy something at a low price. And you sell it at a higher price in order to make a profit. That's just how business operates. But now when
you turn your stock market dealings into gambling,
you are going by oh if I have an itch in the back of my neck, okay, now it's time to sell sell, sell, sell, sell.
I have an itch on my foot. Okay, now it's time to buy buy, buy, buy, buy buy.
You're not following any principles. You're just going according to you know, superstition, that whenever you have a itch in the back of your neck, something bad's coming you'll get rid of it and whenever you have a page on your toe something goods come in so now you do it now that's just gambling.
That's what was halaal was turned into her

So the things that are left now which are MOBA, in between,
neither obligatory nor forbidden,
recommended, nor disliked. This is just neutral. These are the things that you make this to hora about.
So in the case of hula
hula is permissible. It's not recommended.

So you can make a staccato for color.

Then we're going to end our questions thoroughly. Can you give us tips and techniques to understand the meanings of the majestic and noble words of the Quran?

in the understanding of the Quran, definitely.
it and obligation
as much as you can.
can a widow remarry without the consent of her children. woman does not need the consent of the children to be married.
