which is that of

Well Allah Allah He was happy woman Stan Bissonnette E. Li Ahmed de

00:03:57--> 00:04:00

This is the 40th session.

00:04:02--> 00:04:08

And the name the 57th name is a Shaheed the witness

00:04:10--> 00:04:15

in terms of its location in the Quran, it's mentioned some 12 times and the grand

00:04:16--> 00:04:17

among them

00:04:18--> 00:04:21

in Algeria Illa Allah Allah

00:04:22--> 00:04:25

wa hawala, Aquila Shea m shade.

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

My payment is only from Allah.

00:04:32--> 00:04:35

And he is overall things witness.

00:04:36--> 00:04:39

The meaning of this name as Shahid

00:04:41--> 00:04:47

is derived from the trilateral route, Shin, ha, doll,

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

and the gerrant Shahada tone, Shahada, which has three main meanings the first meaning is to bear with

00:05:00--> 00:05:04

That's the second is to offer testimony.

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

And the third meaning is to have knowledge of something.

00:05:09--> 00:05:22

Shaheed is the intensive form of the present participle showerhead, which means by itself a witness according to the frequently used file patter.

00:05:24--> 00:05:34

Words sharing the German root appear 160 times in the Quran and nine derived forms among them.

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

Yes, how do he testifies,

00:05:41--> 00:05:54

she do take witnesses, or take as witnesses Shahada at my witness, shuhada witnesses are martyrs.

00:05:56--> 00:06:34

Relative to Allah, this divine a mushahid means of Allah is a witness to everything that is done, and he will hear and he will bear witness for and against everyone. Nothing escapes him. Nothing is hidden from he is a witness for the oppressed. Who is without a witness or a helper, against the oppressor, who No one can stop. Allahu Allah coolessay in Shahid, Allah witnesses everything.

00:06:35--> 00:06:55

The Divine Name as Shaheed also refers to a laws awareness of everything. He hears every sound loud and quiet, and sees every thing which is large or small. In addition, he is the one who will testify for or against his servants for the deeds.

00:06:57--> 00:07:23

This name also contains the meanings of both the knowledge related Divine Names Aleem and Al Kabir. As a law I shade knows and is fully aware of everything. Since he witnesses everything that takes place wherever, whenever and however it takes place visibly or invisibly.

00:07:25--> 00:07:28

Moving on to the application of this name.

00:07:30--> 00:07:36

According to open bottles, four principles, the first of which is to adopt where applicable.

00:07:39--> 00:08:33

We look at witness against wrong the Divine Name a Shaheed may be applied, by being witnesses against whatever wrongdoing takes place, as well as witnesses to the truth and righteousness. Being witnesses to the truth involves promoting and spreading the message of Islam to human guy, while bearing witness against oppression is fulfilled by blocking it. If we're in a position of authority, speaking out against it, if we're not, and hating it in our hearts, if that is all our situations allow us to do. herbicide and sundry reported that you heard the Messenger of Allah say mandurah I mean, c'mon Quran failure via Ruby Edie, whoever sees evil among you should change it with his hand.

00:08:33--> 00:08:43

But if he's unable let him change it with his tongue if he's still unable let him do so in his heart. And that is the weakest level of faith.

00:08:44--> 00:09:18

This had is an elaboration on the general responsibility of the oma to promote righteousness in society and to prevent evil, Allah. The witness of all said, quantum Hydra omoton allegedly NASS, Tamar una Bill Maher, roofie and hona and in one care what took me when I believe you are the best oma raised up for the benefit of humankind. You enjoy righteousness forbid evil and believe in Allah.

00:09:22--> 00:09:26

An example of confronting evil

00:09:27--> 00:09:37

can be seen in an image, or a scenario described by the prophet SAW Salem of a time to come.

00:09:39--> 00:09:41

During the reign of Messiah had the job

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

of the Antichrist, as he performs various acts of magic. In order to win over the masses, you will be confronted by unbeliever will challenge his claims to be God and bear witness against his false

00:10:00--> 00:10:49

The jaw will furiously grab him in front of the masses and appear to saw him into two halves from the middle of his head to his crotch. The Antichrist will then walk between the two halves turn and call them back to life. His halves will appear to rejoin themselves, and the young believer will once again stand up alive. However, while the Zhao commands him to declare his belief, that the jollies God, the youth will reply, I've only become more certain that you are false. Then he will turn to the people and say, Oh people, he won't be able to do this again, with anyone after me.

00:10:50--> 00:11:29

The job will then grab him by his neck in order to chop off his head, but a copper band will appear there and prevent him from doing so. He will then grab him by his hands and feet and throw him into his river of fire, which accompanies him wherever he goes. People will think that the fire consumed him, but according to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, he actually fell into paradise. And the prophet SAW Selim added half of them on nasci Shahada 10 in the rock Bilaal I mean, this young man is the greatest martyr in the sight of the Lord of all the worlds

00:11:31--> 00:11:55

as witnesses for a law. The other way to adopt this Divine Name is to be witnesses for a law before humankind by delivering the message of Islam to them. Allah said Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam as the final prophet, to all of humankind, until the end of this world. In 610. When revelation began,

00:11:57--> 00:12:00

the prophet SAW Sal was

00:12:01--> 00:12:05

a recipient of prophethood from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:12:06--> 00:12:28

And the law said, Wow, well, my cell Naka Illa, kaftan leanness, but she run when are the raw, Allah can axon nasty Allah, Allah mu. I've only sent you Muhammad as a giver of glad tidings and a warner to all humankind. But most people don't understand.

00:12:30--> 00:12:45

He died in 632. And they were no profits coming after him. As a law said, McCallum Mohammedan abaa had a mirage alikom we're lucky rasulillah hahaha ohata mal nabee.

00:12:46--> 00:12:57

The prophet SAW them that Muhammad wa salam is not the father of any of your men, is a law's messenger and this seal of the prophets

00:12:59--> 00:13:07

that's the last statement. You know, after saying that Muhammad wa salam was a warner to all of humankind.

00:13:09--> 00:13:44

As long as I sell them bore witness to Allah, he delivered the message to his followers. We need to be witnesses likewise by conveying the message from him to the rest of human guy. He clearly instructed as saying by level Arnie, what is conveyed from me even if it is only a single verse. Consequently, it is the sworn duty on every Muslim to spread the message of Islam to those around us. However, this is not as difficult as it might see.

00:13:46--> 00:13:58

Every Muslim must learn some chapters of the Quran for their daily prayers. Among the shortest and most popular chapters is Surah Al f last

00:13:59--> 00:14:10

chapter of sincerity, which states all who Allahu Ahad a lot of summon them yell it will a new lead, what a miracle no one

00:14:12--> 00:14:18

say he is a lot of unique, a lot of subs subsisted.

00:14:19--> 00:14:24

He did not give birth, nor was he born, and nothing is similar to him.

00:14:26--> 00:14:36

Each and every one of these four short verses contain contains a crucial message about the law to the followers of the world's religion.

00:14:39--> 00:14:45

In verse number one, Allah describes himself as being uniquely one

00:14:46--> 00:14:47

who Allah who

00:14:48--> 00:14:58

this message is primarily to the world to the world religion, with the largest number of followers today, the Christians

00:15:00--> 00:15:27

Not three gods in one, as they claim like water, ice and vapor, or like our like a man, being a father, son and brothers simultaneously. But if one dies, they all die, or like a tree composed of roots, branches and a trunk. Three and one is not uniquely one at all. It is also

00:15:28--> 00:15:46

to the animists, who worship the spirits of the forest plants, trees, moon and sun etc. as well as to the Zoroastrians who have a God of good, who are a master and a God of evil.

00:15:47--> 00:15:48

Angra Manu

00:15:49--> 00:15:50

inverse to

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

Allah has no needs

00:15:55--> 00:15:58

love lava summit, but all need him.

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

This is for all those who put plates of food before their idols among the Hindus ring a bell to wake up the garden the morning, bathe it and then pour milk over it.

00:16:14--> 00:16:25

Also, this addresses the Christians who believe that Jesus is God yet he ate, slept, went to the toilet, etc. Like all human beings.

00:16:27--> 00:16:43

verse three, he doesn't give birth. Let me Alan, noisy born while I'm you lead. This is directed to Hindus, Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and others who believe that Gods gave birth to other gods.

00:16:45--> 00:16:50

nor was he born, is also focused on Christians who believe that Jesus

00:16:51--> 00:16:55

God the Son, they call him was born of the Virgin Mary.

00:16:57--> 00:17:21

And worse for there is nothing similar to him. When lamea kulambu and I had this verse addresses all the religions, which have images of Gods similar to his creatures. It is it also addresses the beliefs of the Jews and Christians who claim that God rested on the seventh day of creation, and that he repented.

00:17:23--> 00:17:38

Here is the summary of the message of Sura loss. For those still confused to say, there are so many different religions, how are we supposed to know which one is the right one, and which one is the wrong one.

00:17:39--> 00:17:56

Actually, there are only two religions, the right religion, and the wrong religion. In the right religion, taught by all the true prophets of God, only Allah alone is worshiped.

00:17:57--> 00:18:34

While in the wrong religions, everything other than God is worshipped in a great variety of different ways. So it's just either believing in one to God and worshiping only that one to God, or believing in the gods of creation and worshipping various Gods within creation in a variety of different ways. So there's only two, this keeps it very simple, because once you start trying to deal with each and every religion, then you get lost.

00:18:36--> 00:18:46

But the Dharma using sorla class focuses on one religion, one true religion, everything else is false.

00:18:49--> 00:19:05

So the vast majority of Muslims know this short chapter, and each and every one of them can share its brief but precise messages to the world around them, which has confused the law with his creation.

00:19:06--> 00:19:16

Consequently, virtually no mature, sane, unimpaired and conscious Muslim is excused from conveying the message of Islam

00:19:17--> 00:19:18

to their communities.

00:19:20--> 00:19:38

Furthermore, whenever the prophet SAW Selim addressed his followers about important matters, he would conclude by telling those present let those present. Those are Scheid convey what they have heard to those absent.

00:19:39--> 00:19:41

bluebell leoben let her shine.

00:19:43--> 00:19:52

For perhaps the one present may inform one better able to understand the message than him.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

As an oma a community we're also enjoined to convey the message

00:20:00--> 00:20:28

To the world together. Allah said, What are the alakija? Nah, come on mutton was a thought litter Qunu Shahada Anna nasi, where qunar Rasul Allah come shahida I have made you believers into adjust community, so that you may bear witness to the truth before others, so that the messenger may or may bear witness to it before you.

00:20:30--> 00:20:39

I will say that Audrey quoted the Messenger of Allah is saying, a prophet will come on the Day of Resurrection accompanied by only one man

00:20:41--> 00:20:54

and another prophet, who will come accompanied by two or more than that, then there are people will be called and asked, Did this person convey the message to you? And they will reply, no.

00:20:55--> 00:21:34

Problem prophet wouldn't be asked, Did you convey the message to your people, and he will reply us, you will be asked who will bear witness for you, and He will reply Muhammad and his oma. So Prophet Muhammad wa sallam and his oma will be called, and they only asked that this person convey the message to his people. And they will reply, yes. Then they will be asked, How did you know that? They will reply, our Prophet came to us and told us that the messengers have all conveyed the message to their people.

00:21:36--> 00:21:42

That is the meaning of the words of Allah, or canonica. Jonathan Martin was

00:21:44--> 00:21:49

thus I've made you a just invest nation.

00:21:50--> 00:22:01

He went on to say, just as this was just so that you will be witnesses before humankind, and the messenger will be a witness for you remainder of the verse.

00:22:02--> 00:22:19

We should note here, though, that Albano he narrated in his tafsir that can be explained that was a thought or was often meant the followers of the middle religion,

00:22:20--> 00:22:42

one that represents a middle path between exaggeration and negligence, because both are blameworthy in matters of religion. So while omoton wafaa means the best and just, it also means the balanced the middle, gosh.

00:22:43--> 00:23:07

Be witnesses for rights. The Divine Name a Shaheed is also applied by providing honest witness as evidence in various circumstances where such evidence is needed. For example, and contracts are made, we're instructed by law to record them by putting them in writing to avoid misunderstandings later.

00:23:08--> 00:23:26

Yeah, you already in Ave is that today Anthony Bourdain in illa agilan masama fact to go. Go you will believe when you contract a debt for a stated term, put it down in writing.

00:23:27--> 00:23:31

What does she do shade any marriage article

00:23:32--> 00:23:36

and take two men as witnesses.

00:23:38--> 00:23:51

It goes on to say if two men are not there, then call one man and two women. Out of those you approve as witnesses so that if one of the two women should forget the other can remind her.

00:23:53--> 00:24:23

On one hand, recording as a witness is important and instructed that many times it is ignored with grave consequences. On the other hand, witnesses are required or recommended to further confirm the correctness of transactions. It is here that the finger is pointed at Islam as oppressing women by considering them inferior to men, since the witness of one man is equal to that of two women.

00:24:24--> 00:24:49

However, there are three points that we should keep in mind. Yes, the grant does state it's all Baccarat we just took it was too early to get two of your men as witnesses. But if two men are not available, then get a man and two women agreeable to you as witnesses so that if one of them makes a mistake, the other can remind her.

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

However, this principle is not applied in all cases. It doesn't mean for whatever the incident

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

Or the circumstance which needs witnessing

00:25:05--> 00:25:08

to women are required.

00:25:09--> 00:25:17

If for every man that is required if only one man is required, and you're going to replace it with women, then you need to women.

00:25:19--> 00:25:43

This is this is specific to business contracts. As the beginning of the verse indicates, since women in Muslim society generally stay at home, and men work outside the home, they tend not to be that familiar with business dealings. As such, they may forget some of the details. As the verse explains,

00:25:47--> 00:25:55

this consideration might seem quaint in the West, where women have been a part of the workforce for much of the 20th century.

00:25:56--> 00:26:22

With the exception of Japan, women entered the workforce as a result of the need for them in society. And in the munitions factories during World War Two, and World War One. millions of men in their prime were sent overseas to fight and their jobs had to be filled by women.

00:26:24--> 00:26:32

Once the wars ended, many refuse many of the women refused to return to their homes, and the feminist movement was born.

00:26:33--> 00:27:02

Eventually, many women came to look at fulfillment in the workplace. And would you know, they would find their fulfillment in the workplace instead of at home. Even if their job was only that of a secretary harassed by her boss, smiling sheepishly to keep her job. She felt it was better than being stuck at home cooking, washing dishes, changing diapers and preparing bottles of milk.

00:27:03--> 00:27:25

Many Western women became familiar with business dealings. So the previously mentioned considerations we then seem to them irrelevant. However, even in America today, the vast majority of women are housewives spending most of their lives in their homes, while their husbands work and bring home the bread.

00:27:27--> 00:27:50

Actually, in areas of female expertise, the witness of a single woman is sufficient. For example, when autobuy even Hadith complained to the prophet SAW Selim that a former slave woman, informed him that she had wet nursed both himself and his wife omya bent Abby, he had

00:27:52--> 00:27:56

prophesied Salaam replied kafer book called The tale.

00:27:57--> 00:28:01

How can you object when it has already been stated?

00:28:03--> 00:28:23

according to Islamic law, those who circled from the same breath before the age of two becomes suckling mothers circling brothers and sisters, and are not allowed to marry. Consequently, their marriage marriage was allowed on the basis of a single woman's testimony.

00:28:25--> 00:28:56

Moving on to the second principle of evil but all that of confirming were unique and inapplicable. Divine Name as Shaheed incorporates the ability to witness anything and everything everywhere simultaneously, which is unique to Allah and His creatures are incapable of possessing it. All creatures are limited by the natural limitations of their senses of sight hearing and touch.

00:28:57--> 00:29:05

confirming this reality should reinforce the self consciousness of maraca

00:29:07--> 00:29:14

which was covered in the discussion regarding the Divine Names are rakeem and then hafeez.

00:29:15--> 00:29:38

Allah Shaheed warned us to be aware of his being a witness to everything that we think and do. Well Allah mu, and Allah Hi, I'm Omar fee and physical follow through. Beware that Allah knows what is within yourselves. So beware of him.

00:29:39--> 00:29:41

So at about 235

00:29:42--> 00:29:44

consequently,

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

those who are truly aware of this divine level of invigilation will not be negligent. Instead, they will take stock of their own situations, businesses dealings and worship as well as

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

All the remaining aspects of their own lives. In that level of awareness lies the rectification of the affairs of this life and the next and the attainment of the highest levels of faith. mentioned in the hadith of Gabriel, with the prophets are seldom describe the perfection of faith as worshiping a law as if you can see, and if you can see him, worshiping Him, knowing that he sees you.

00:30:34--> 00:30:38

This level of faith and stage of worship is called a maraca

00:30:39--> 00:30:44

and was further described by if no time

00:30:45--> 00:30:55

as a person's continuous knowledge and certainty of a loss complete awareness of his or her outward actions and inward thoughts.

00:30:57--> 00:31:20

On the other hand, we confirm our belief in a loss Divine Name, or Shahid by also rejecting all claims that give this divine attributes to a loss creatures, like those expressed by Muhammad ridot xfl, or al collini. In his book alhaja of the most authentic Shiite

00:31:21--> 00:31:29

traditions, called al caffee. Under the heading the Imams can know anything whenever they wish to

00:31:30--> 00:32:18

where he narrated the following tradition from Imam Jaffer saw that whenever any man wishes to possess knowledge or anything, he can easily know it. This is totally unacceptable. It is a statement of sheer subpoena last names and attributes. Likewise, among Sophie's quoted by one of their followers are saying I saw st a while he reached a great station when he possessed all he witnessed all intelligent and unintelligent creative beings. such claims must automatically be rejected as the babbling of deranged individuals, which are without a shadow of a doubt, outside of the pale of Islam.

00:32:19--> 00:32:22

Moving on to the third principle,

00:32:25--> 00:32:29

enunciated by Imam Ibn bahcall

00:32:31--> 00:32:33

finding hope where there is a promise

00:32:35--> 00:32:46

the Divine Name of Shaheed contains in it a promise of ultimate happiness and success for the believers who sincerely become witnesses for the faith of Islam.

00:32:47--> 00:32:56

prophets Our solemn promise paradise for those who sincerely declare the faith and limit man shine

00:32:58--> 00:33:07

an unknown Allah Allah and Allah wa ana Muhammadan rasul Allah, Hara Rama Allahu Allah hidden now

00:33:10--> 00:33:23

prophet SAW Selim said whoever witnesses that there is no God but Allah and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is His Messenger. Allah has made him forbidden to the hellfire.

00:33:25--> 00:33:49

Furthermore, those witnesses for Islam who died others to Islam gain multiple rewards beginning with the sharing of the reward of conversion with all who convert due to their efforts. In a Darla Arlen, Heidi kabylie runs as Alan said, One who guides others to good gets the reward of the one who does the good.

00:33:50--> 00:34:08

So guiding somebody to Islam, when they accepted Islam, that's a great good, the good that that person who converts, gains you as the guide also gets and the promise on solemn has further

00:34:09--> 00:34:31

increased the reward of the one who guides others to Islam, saying even if a single man is led on the right path of Islam, by a law through you, then that will be better for you. A nice red camels nice with camels or red camel was the

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

most expensive

00:34:35--> 00:34:38

cameras that were available.

00:34:39--> 00:34:41

worth more they're like the Rolls Royce of today.

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

The Divine promise of Morocco about the divine promise of the Divine Name a Shaheed is also that Morocco should produce happiness, well being and real, long lasting pleasure

00:35:00--> 00:35:23

But it requires that the heart feels the presence of a law, then it does not always become completely distracted by trivialities while in acts of worship. Happiness of the heart, derived from closeness to Allah is very special. The prophet SAW Selim itself called it the real wealth.

00:35:24--> 00:35:44

Buddha quoted the prophets Allah saying, lesson Hina uncaf Ratan Olive like kinilaw Hina Hina knifes. Wealth is not measured in an abundance of property, but in richness of the soul, that is contentment.

00:35:46--> 00:35:47

Trust inertia heat

00:35:48--> 00:35:49

also

00:35:51--> 00:35:53

carries for us

00:35:55--> 00:36:03

the problem promise of Allah being a Shaheed I say it gives us the basis for putting our hope and trust in Him.

00:36:04--> 00:36:07

In this beautiful, soothing verse

00:36:09--> 00:36:20

was better Leah helped me Robic for in a cambiar yo Nina, so wait patiently for your Lord decree. For indeed you are in His sight.

00:36:22--> 00:36:51

Rest assured, the Divine Name mushahid promises us that for any unjust treatment we face at the hands of others, slander, gossip or abuse as Shaheed is our witness, and we will get justice sooner or later. That confidence in a loss justice is a big part of what gives us richness of the soul that we spoke about earlier.

00:36:53--> 00:36:54

The last pillar

00:36:55--> 00:37:02

of application suggested by imaam ibn batal

00:37:03--> 00:37:36

is fear where there is a warning the Divine Name a Shaheed the witness, contains an indirect warning and reminder that all our missed misdeeds are witnessed, which in turn, forms a part of the basis for the principle of overseeing oneself and maraca we spoke about earlier. In order to get closer to Allah, and thereby become more mindful of Allah.

00:37:38--> 00:38:19

We must always try to remember that we are servants of Allah. It's sometimes easy to shout at our families or children inside the house, or even oppress others when we're in positions of authority over them. We should remind ourselves each and in each and every situation, wherever we may be, whoever we're talking to, whatever important positions we might have, that we are all servants of Allah, a shade and he is witnessing every move we make every step we take. And he will take us all to account.

00:38:21--> 00:38:24

To gain a lot of pleasure by way of maraca

00:38:25--> 00:38:31

where sinful acts are involved. Repentance is fundamentally what is required.

00:38:32--> 00:38:39

realisation of a loss witness should motivate the believers to seek genuine forgiveness from their Lord.

00:38:40--> 00:38:41

The witness,

00:38:42--> 00:38:45

shy it under shade.

00:38:46--> 00:39:15

The seeking of forgiveness and repentance should not be mere repetition of formulas and phrases like a stark federal law. I seek your forgiveness a lot, which the province on Sunday I'm used to do more than 100 times daily, but it should be combined with a reflection on our sins in order to experience sincere sadness and regret, which will make real salvation from our sins possible.

00:39:18--> 00:39:59

It is essential that sincere sinful that the sincere sinful soul seeking allows forgiveness fields, deep sorrow and regret for its transgression. Because remorse is the foundation of repentance of Toba. Without it repentance becomes a meaningless ritual devoid of any real sincerity and substance. The sinner who repents without self condemnation may secretly relish the memories of his or sin, while outwardly pretending to give it up. As long as the violation of a law is law.

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

is not given up in the heart, it will only be a matter of time before the sinner returns to the same

00:40:09--> 00:40:12

without Toba. without remorse.

00:40:14--> 00:41:12

It will be devoid of consciousness and fear of God, maraca and thus will likely be for some materialistic goals for example, a job position, requiring that one holding it abstain from certain vices, which may cause those who apply for the position to hypocritically abandon these vices, while harboring in their hearts a secret love for them. Since such a form of repentance lacks the primary ingredient of sincerity, it will likely be transformed into a continuous sin and held against the perpetrator. The primary role of being regretful in repentance was emphasized by the promise of Salaam in his statement, another mu Toba regret is the essence of repentance.

00:41:13--> 00:41:46

There should also be a firm intent not to repeat the sin again, for the remorse to be real. For How can someone feel sorry about having done something wrong, while still enjoying its sweetness in his or her soul? sorrow in such cases, would only be a show for the benefit of others. It could not possibly be due to a conscious recognition of the gravity of the sin and regret from the fear of that

00:41:48--> 00:42:06

not possible through sorrow and sadness will produce a great and strong desire not to repeat the sin. But this does not mean that if someone does repeat the sin, the original repentance was not sincere and was not accepted.

00:42:07--> 00:42:20

It is possible for one to slip back into the same sin in times of weakness, but it should not be this to the same degree, nor should it take the same length of time to realize the sin.

00:42:21--> 00:42:24

remember Allah and abandon it.

00:42:25--> 00:42:43

If one falls back into the same sin, to the same degree, or even worse, the sincerity of the original repentance would then become doubt, as it did not appear to have had any effect on the sinners. So

00:42:45--> 00:42:57

So regret is the essence of repentance. May Allah grant us that quality when we seek forgiveness from

00:42:59--> 00:43:06

closing now, we will use a last name I shade

00:43:08--> 00:43:10

in our do our Allah.

00:43:11--> 00:43:17

Yeah Shaheed we know that you are a witness to everything we do and say,

00:43:18--> 00:43:22

Please guide us to live by your testimony of faith.

00:43:23--> 00:43:26

The Shahada, Allah, Allah and Allah

00:43:27--> 00:43:54

allow us to utter it on our deathbeds. Yeah, sure he'd make our awareness about your witness, an inspiration for us to increase our good deeds. Dr. Shahid make us always stand up for the truth and allow us to join with the ranks of the prophets, martyrs and the righteous, the highest levels of Paradise

00:43:56--> 00:44:02

barakallahu li comm salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa here about a cat.

00:44:04--> 00:44:06

With that, we finish

00:44:07--> 00:44:15

our session and move now to the q&a segment.

00:44:17--> 00:44:19

But a lot of people

00:44:23--> 00:44:25

first, we have

00:44:27--> 00:44:28

to do while

00:44:30--> 00:44:34

asking, cooking for in laws all week

00:44:35--> 00:45:00

is reward is rewarded by a lot. I get tired sometimes with this responsibility. But my mother says you will get rewarded for it. Why do you say chef who help? This is a sad situation that happens to many women in the subcontinent who after their husband marry them. They put

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

Have them in the home of their husbands parents. So they become, as many of them have said, like slaves in that home. the Mother, the Father will call them to do things, they don't call their own daughters and sons.

00:45:15--> 00:45:23

So they'll be running around all the time trying to please them. And of course, this is not right. It's not fair. It's not just

00:45:24--> 00:45:28

so those who are doing this, I advise them to stop

00:45:29--> 00:45:36

to think about the rights of our rights, and give them those rights.

00:45:38--> 00:45:43

So, of course, if you go ahead to do it, during the cooking,

00:45:45--> 00:45:52

you will be rewarded, if you're patient with it, etc. But of course, at the same time, there are limits.

00:45:53--> 00:45:57

You have to speak with your husband, to

00:45:58--> 00:46:00

have your parents be

00:46:01--> 00:46:12

have his parents be reasonable. Okay, she's in the home, eating in the home, etc. She cooks sometimes, but other females in the home should cook also.

00:46:14--> 00:46:23

The mother in law should cook also, that's her primary responsibility. So why should it be cast on?

00:46:25--> 00:46:28

The in law daughter in law?

00:46:32--> 00:46:37

Next question from Zaha Shah, if a person doesn't weep,

00:46:38--> 00:46:39

or cry

00:46:40--> 00:46:44

during grief, or no matter what the situation

00:46:47--> 00:46:52

even during dwad tears don't roll down the eyes, the cheeks

00:46:53--> 00:46:56

does it mean the person's heart has become hard

00:46:57--> 00:46:58

because of sins.

00:47:01--> 00:47:02

It could be

00:47:03--> 00:47:04

could mean that

00:47:05--> 00:47:09

but it could also mean that the person

00:47:10--> 00:47:15

is not reflecting sufficiently, you know, in their day.

00:47:17--> 00:47:23

They need to be more conscious of a lie in the law.

00:47:25--> 00:47:37

And what they can do is they can think about an incident or incidents in their lives, which brought them to tears.

00:47:39--> 00:47:43

And when they think about that incident, it causes them to cry.

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

And at that time, make their day.

00:47:49--> 00:47:55

No use that occasion. That feeling that state of mind

00:47:58--> 00:48:13

to the best or for the best by seeking a lot of forgiveness and one as attained. Right? Because the promises and I'm did say that you know the eye that

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

drops a tear

00:48:17--> 00:48:22

for the sake of Allah, but not be touched by the Hellfire

00:48:27--> 00:48:29

from casimba Zubair

00:48:32--> 00:48:47

can someone be on the right path? If he does not follow the systematic method of Acadia, as it was organized by the AMA, this person reads on his own and follows his own understanding

00:48:49--> 00:48:51

and that of his email.

00:48:52--> 00:48:53

Yeah.

00:48:54--> 00:48:56

Knowing the details

00:48:58--> 00:48:59

you know,

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

the detail breakdown about Qaeda etc. This is not a requirement of each and every person.

00:49:10--> 00:49:13

It's enough for them to know the basic understanding

00:49:15--> 00:49:18

and live according to that basic understanding.

00:49:19--> 00:49:23

The details are for those who want to study

00:49:26--> 00:49:46

want to teach this for example, the role they're going to become teachers etc. So they need to have that detail understanding to clarify it for others. Otherwise, the basic understanding that a lie is one that is unique it is oneness and only worshiping Him alone.

00:49:47--> 00:49:48

That's

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

enough.

00:49:52--> 00:49:59

We can say that you know people living in villages etc are expected

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

Do have gone into these in depth areas of study now,

00:50:06--> 00:50:10

it is enough for them to have a general understanding

00:50:17--> 00:50:18

Shabnam

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

Salaam

00:50:22--> 00:50:27

doctors the journal and yeah Jews and Matthew mentioned in the Quran

00:50:30--> 00:50:36

yes yeah do Gemma Jude is mentioned in the Quran the jar is not specifically mentioned there

00:50:40--> 00:50:44

I mentioned in Christianity Judaism

00:50:46--> 00:50:51

No, but the journal is mentioned in Christianity

00:50:53--> 00:51:04

and beliefs also in Judaism to some degree in Christianity definitely the Antichrist plays a big role in

00:51:05--> 00:51:06

their

00:51:08--> 00:51:09

belief system.

00:51:14--> 00:51:15

Okay with that

00:51:17--> 00:51:18

we have any questions from

00:51:20--> 00:51:22

Instagram students?

00:51:27--> 00:51:27

No?

00:51:34--> 00:51:40

Well, if there are no questions inshallah, we will end the session early.

00:51:41--> 00:51:45

And we will see you all tomorrow.

00:51:54--> 00:51:57

There was one last question which popped in.

00:51:58--> 00:51:59

And that was,

00:52:01--> 00:52:03

which book Am I following?

00:52:04--> 00:52:07

For the names of a lot?

00:52:09--> 00:52:14

Well, there's a compilation by chef Gandhi.

00:52:15--> 00:52:17

That following

00:52:20--> 00:52:20

and

00:52:22--> 00:52:28

also one on the Divine Names by Jeff hysa.

00:52:29--> 00:52:30

As well as

00:52:31--> 00:52:33

Omar, last fives,

00:52:34--> 00:52:35

book

00:52:36--> 00:52:37

for the

00:52:39--> 00:52:41

listing of the names, etc.

00:52:42--> 00:52:44

journeys I'm using for

00:52:46--> 00:52:48

understanding

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

linguistically etc.

00:52:53--> 00:52:53

And

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

the principles

00:52:58--> 00:53:01

understanding the principles of ba ba

00:53:04--> 00:53:06

bah Ha. Hamidi

00:53:08--> 00:53:11

says, I mess up all day,

00:53:12--> 00:53:16

I look where I'm not supposed to be looking.

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

I'm a man.

00:53:19--> 00:53:20

What shall I do?

00:53:23--> 00:53:23

Well,

00:53:26--> 00:53:29

the Rasul Allah said, Every

00:53:31--> 00:53:35

child of Adam descended that Adam commits errors

00:53:37--> 00:53:44

constant constantly. And the best of those who commit errors are those who repent regularly.

00:53:45--> 00:53:48

So, if you find yourself

00:53:49--> 00:53:52

looking where you're not supposed to look, then

00:53:55--> 00:53:57

seek forgiveness from Allah.

00:53:58--> 00:54:28

Just keep doing it. Tried to be sincere in doing it. As I mentioned, if your eyes don't become filled with tears, or half tears, then reflect on an incident a painful incident in your life which brought you to tears or brings you to tears whenever you think about it. And use that incident while seeking a loss forgiveness.

00:54:31--> 00:54:33

Do you have to say I will we

00:54:34--> 00:54:36

will read it to corsi

00:54:39--> 00:54:41

like after every foreign Salah

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

No.

00:54:46--> 00:54:48

That's not a requirement.

00:54:51--> 00:54:58

Hawaii say asks, Why do some people say chef Milan is a sophist?

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

I don't think this a sophist, probably Salafist.

00:55:06--> 00:55:09

Nearly anybody referred to me as being a Sufi.

00:55:11--> 00:55:12

In fact,

00:55:13--> 00:55:15

quite the opposite that

00:55:16--> 00:55:20

label that. So, the Salafist is what

00:55:22--> 00:55:24

is probably the term which is being used,

00:55:25--> 00:55:39

and a Salafist or Salafi is one who follows the Quran and Sunnah. According to the Sahaba, the understanding of the Sahaba

00:55:40--> 00:55:59

the Tabby rune, those who were students of this Harbor, and the tablet, Tabby aim, the students of the students of the Sahaba you know, that is the essence of what Salafi is and all the scholars who follow that same methodology.

00:56:00--> 00:56:05

So, I follow up Abu hanifa, I follow Malik

00:56:07--> 00:56:18

Shafi, madam humble, you know, I follow all of that, I don't follow them believing that they were following that same methodology.

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

And,

00:56:22--> 00:56:25

you know, so I don't just follow one madhhab

00:56:29--> 00:56:40

say, hanafy, I'm not the Hanafi though, when I first came into Islam, I was advised that it's best that I become a hanafy. And I did at that time,

00:56:42--> 00:56:45

decide that, yes, I will be happy. But

00:56:46--> 00:56:53

within a year of that, when I went to study in Medina, it became clear to me that, you know,

00:56:55--> 00:57:30

kind of being a hanafy was not something that was desirable, for myself was coming from nothing, I wasn't anything, I converted to Islam. And so, I was free to look at the schools and follow the best that I could determine from them. That opportunity was there for me not for many others who never were exposed to anything else, but particularly School of their area. So,

00:57:32--> 00:57:37

the Salafi, some may take extreme positions that

00:57:39--> 00:57:41

you know, following a mother is haram.

00:57:42--> 00:58:06

Well, this is an error, you know, follow the mother blindly, without trying to find the truth as best as one could. This is not good. You know, but still, following the mother is not in and of itself, haraam. Some have gone to sort of an extreme in that.

00:58:07--> 00:58:08

So I hope you have understood

00:58:11--> 00:58:30

what is meant by when people say that I'm Salafist, I believe, which Allah, all of you who are with me here are all selfies. Meaning maybe you don't call yourself selfies, and I don't go around with a batch saying I'm a selfie. I carry a placard saying be selfie.

00:58:33--> 00:58:42

This is individual's choice. But understanding that as long as you're following granite sooner, you know, according to the

00:58:43--> 00:58:47

understanding of the first three generations of Muslims, then

00:58:48--> 00:58:52

you're a Salafi whether you call yourself that or not.

00:58:53--> 00:58:55

That's what Salafi needs.

00:58:58--> 00:59:03

Okay with that Sharla we will close our session for today.

00:59:04--> 00:59:06

Barak Allah fickle.

00:59:09--> 00:59:16

Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. So Hannah Coloma Hammond, aka the shadow

00:59:18--> 00:59:20

stop firaga wanted to

00:59:23--> 00:59:24

be a man in there
