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

This is the 41st session

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

in which we'll be covering the name

00:04:32--> 00:04:38

adhoc the absolute truth which is the 58th name in our series.

00:04:40--> 00:04:43

In terms of its location, it's mentioned 10 times

00:04:44--> 00:04:53

among them who nautical welcome Elia to Lila and Huck. Oh, who was hired on sawada were hired on October.

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

They're the authorities completely for a law. The truth is

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

The best in reward and the best in outcome. So our first 44

00:05:06--> 00:05:19

in terms of its meaning linguistically, the Divine Name, ad hoc comes from the trilateral route. Half of off was verbal noun How can

00:05:21--> 00:05:24

has four basic meanings,

00:05:25--> 00:05:32

the first of which is to be true and genuine, to be substantial and real.

00:05:34--> 00:05:37

The second meaning is to be right and correct.

00:05:38--> 00:05:43

And to be suitable according to the requirements of wisdom and justice.

00:05:45--> 00:05:48

The third is to be an established fact

00:05:49--> 00:05:54

to be unavoidable, and to happen without doubt.

00:05:55--> 00:06:03

And the fourth meaning is to be proper, and to be in accord with the needs of the situation.

00:06:05--> 00:06:17

This route appears 287 times in the Koran and seven different derived forms. Examples of these can be found in hapa

00:06:19--> 00:06:23

proved true, or hopko. More correct,

00:06:24--> 00:06:26

I will have the truth.

00:06:27--> 00:06:28

And I'll

00:06:29--> 00:06:32

add to the inevitable reality.

00:06:34--> 00:06:37

relative to a law. This Divine Name

00:06:38--> 00:06:52

means that a lot is true in and of himself. His existence, his attributes are undeniably real, and nothing can truly exist, except by his permission.

00:06:53--> 00:06:59

His words are truth, and the inevitable meeting with him is fact.

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

His messengers spoke the truth, his books contain the truth. his religion is the only true religion to worship Him alone without partners or associates, is the only correct way. And everything belonged to him his right and everything rejected by him is wrong.

00:07:21--> 00:07:45

A lot ad hoc, the truth himself says, well, Kunal hakomi, Rob become Furman Sha for lukeman women Sha affiliate for say, the truth is from your Lord. So whosoever wishes to believe, let him do so. And also ever wishes to disbelieved let him do so.

00:07:46--> 00:07:48

So I've got verse 29.

00:07:50--> 00:07:55

Islam does not and never did condone compulsion in religion.

00:07:56--> 00:08:05

Acceptance of faith in Islam is a free individual choice. Although Muslims believe it is the truth,

00:08:06--> 00:08:10

they should never be forced on anyone.

00:08:11--> 00:08:14

Islam should never be forced on anyone.

00:08:16--> 00:08:45

As Allah Al Huck, the embodiment of truth himself said lycra half a deed, but the buyer in a rational manner loci, there should be no compulsion and acceptance of the religion. the right course has become distinct from the wrong. So our makeovers to fifth or sixth, the claim that Islam was spread by the sword is completely and totally false.

00:08:46--> 00:09:05

Islamic teachings forbid it, as we have seen, and human history says otherwise. For when Muslims conquered Palestine, in 638, of the Christian era, by aucuba, during the caliphate of Omar

00:09:07--> 00:09:26

and ruled it for over 400 years, Muslims, Christians and Jews live together in harmony. Muslims did not touch the structures the places of worship of Christians or Jews, turning them into anything else, destroying them, etc.

00:09:28--> 00:09:38

Where Islam spread by where Islam spread by the sword, not a single Christian or Jew, and their houses of worship whatever remained.

00:09:39--> 00:09:58

However, when poor Pope Urban the second launch the crusades, and in 1099, the Crusaders conquered Jerusalem and its inhabitants all of Palestine. Muslims, Christians and Jews were savagely slaughtered

00:10:00--> 00:10:14

The descriptions that can be found of their horses, trampling on the corpses in blood flowing down the streets are quite vivid and quite horrendous.

00:10:16--> 00:10:22

No other than was heard from minarets during their 100 year rule.

00:10:24--> 00:10:26

And it was not until 1187

00:10:27--> 00:10:31

that it was recaptured by Salahuddin Liu be

00:10:32--> 00:10:33

our Kurdish,

00:10:34--> 00:10:39

savior of that time without any revenge slaughtering,

00:10:40--> 00:10:45

and the three religions again, thrive together on the Muslim rule.

00:10:47--> 00:10:56

Muslims conquered Spain in 711 of the Christian error under the General todich bins yard

00:10:57--> 00:11:01

and ruled it until 1492.

00:11:03--> 00:11:14

During the 700 years of rule, Christianity thrived. And we're in the golden years of Jewish scholarship.

00:11:15--> 00:11:23

Christian scholars from all over Europe came and studied under Muslim and Jewish scholars in Spain.

00:11:24--> 00:11:36

When Christians led by Queen Isabella reconquered, Spain, they drove every last Muslim and Jew who wasn't forced to convert out of Spain.

00:11:38--> 00:11:43

The Jews accompanied Muslims to Morocco, which are under Muslim rule,

00:11:44--> 00:12:21

and the mosques of Spain were converted into churches, and every last trace of Islam was erased. Likewise, Muslims began the conquest of in the Indian subcontinent from the eighth century, and ended up ruling it by the end of the 19th century, when the British Empire wrested control of it from the Muslims ruled for over 1000 years without wiping out Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, Buddhism,

00:12:22--> 00:12:31

and Islam being a religion spread by the sword, they wouldn't have remained a single non Muslim in the subcontinent after 1000 years of rule.

00:12:32--> 00:13:17

The stark reality today is that the fastest growing religion on the face of the earth is Islam. without a shadow of a doubt, in spite of hundreds of years of Christian evangelism, and missionaries sent all over the earth. In the very homelands of Christianity, Christian believers are abandoning the churches in droves. The Catholic Church is in a crisis over the pedophilic and forced homosexual consequences of their policies of celibacy. Furthermore, the vast majority of Muslim converts globally today are from Christianity.

00:13:18--> 00:13:51

Christian missionaries spend millions to convert people in Africa and Asia, from animism to Christianity, only to have them convert to Islam shortly thereafter, as Allah said, For Valley como la hora, boom, ad hoc for mother by the hockey ilab dollar. For that is Allah your Lord the truth, the embodiment of truth, and what is there after truth, but error.

00:13:52--> 00:13:59

debates have raged in the past three or four decades of the media revolution

00:14:00--> 00:14:40

between Christian evangelists and Muslim spokespersons, beginning in the late 70s, with Ahmed deedat in South Africa, reaching its Pinnacle with Dr. Zakir Naik, who opponents of Islamic Dawa have recently managed to partially silence who in spite of carefully avoided but Dr. Zakir Naik carefully avoided ridiculing Hindu beliefs which as many of them are quite ridiculous and their practices and instead focused on showing tawheed in their religious texts

00:14:41--> 00:14:45

and even the prophecy of Muhammad's silence coming

00:14:46--> 00:14:48

recorded in their own texts,

00:14:49--> 00:15:00

which led to the conversion of many Hindus on a scale not seen before in recent times. However, with the arrival of a very

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

And Hindu extremist government. He was hounded and chased out of India. However the internet is an even wider regular audience than pstv. Allah highlights this reality in the Quran saying you really do not and youth Phil Nora law we have Why him? way below Illa au TIMA Nora? Well, Carrie Hello Kathy rune. They tried to extinguish a large light with their mouth. But Allah insists on bringing his light to its fullness, even if the disbelievers hate it. The reality is that the truth ad hoc about the true way of life prescribed by the Creator will prevail. Regardless of all efforts to silence, Allah will continue to make the ultimate truth known to greater and greater numbers of

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

human guide in order to give the masses of humankind an increasingly greater opportunity to know it in this life.

00:16:11--> 00:16:28

Welcome to the john hopko was the hot button in Albemarle, Tila carnism who call and say, truth has come and falsehood has vanished. Surely falsehood is ever bound to vanish.

00:16:29--> 00:16:54

Moving along to the application according to open bottles, four principles. Principle number one, to adopt where applicable. Ad Hoc is among the Divine Names which can easily be applied in our lives by simply living truthful lives. Lives lived fundamentally according to the Sharia are basically truthful lives.

00:16:55--> 00:17:18

So being truthful, speaking the truth begins by us being truthful in everything we say and do. The more that we are able to speak the truth and act according to it, and act according to what is right. while observing the correct etiquette of speaking and acting, the more truthful Our lives will become.

00:17:20--> 00:17:44

The truth said improperly will not have the desired effect, which is why the prophet SAW Selim emphasized moral conduct as primary as he said, acmella menina a man sent home Hello, Paul, the most perfect of the believers in faith is the best of them in character.

00:17:45--> 00:17:57

harsh words, loud words demeaning words, hurtful words etc. Cloud and distort the message so much so that it doesn't reach the one spoken to

00:17:58--> 00:18:04

the promises and them did say that religion is good advice a dino naseeha.

00:18:05--> 00:18:16

However, if the good advice is not delivered properly, it can easily become verbal abuse and insulting rather than good advice.

00:18:17--> 00:18:32

That is in reference to how the tools installed. Likewise the same can be said regarding when the advice is given. For example, good advice given in times of anger can be heard.

00:18:33--> 00:19:07

Our anger would prevail and most people would react to our angry state rather than to anything we had to say. Similarly, where the advice is given, plays a huge role in its acceptance. For example, if one gives good advice in the presence of others, thereby embarrassing the one being advised, it is likely not to be taken well. And even if publicly accepted, it would not be internalized.

00:19:09--> 00:19:52

Instead, it would be replaced by resentment to the one who gave the advice publicly. Lastly, why the advice is given can also determine whether the message is conveyed properly or not. Good advice given insincerely detected by the one advised will be automatically rejected as biased or a result of ulterior motives. Consequently, though, good advice is the essence of the message of Islam. It has to be given properly. It has to be packaged properly, for people to buy it, hiding the truth. On the other hand,

00:19:53--> 00:19:58

since giving the truth or teaching the truth or telling the truth

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


00:20:00--> 00:20:02

Applying the

00:20:04--> 00:20:08

attribute and name of a loss by dollar ad hoc.

00:20:10--> 00:20:24

It also means that to not convey the truth, the opposite, hiding the truth. This is something which is evil and forbidden.

00:20:25--> 00:20:46

So for us to apply the truth, we also have to not hide the truth. As I said, inshallah Baqarah verse 42, when I tell this unhackable bounty will attack them on the Hot top and on Tyler moon, do not mix the truth with falsehood and hide the truth knowingly,

00:20:47--> 00:21:38

it is totally unacceptable, that the truth be hidden from others, unless, where there is a potential harm to that individual. For example, when I was afflicted with COVID-19, in October 2020, my wife hid the truth from me. And it was, it was severe COVID, while comforting words, saying comforting words, that it was only a mild case, and nothing to worry about. That made me feel relieved and comfortable. So everyone who asked me how I was, I told them, I was fine Alhamdulillah Had I known that it was severe COVID from which people were dying like flies, I would have probably become worried and anxious, etc.

00:21:39--> 00:21:45

In the same context, the prophet SAW Selim gave permission to lie in three circumstances.

00:21:46--> 00:22:10

Uncle Sue, the daughter of October, related that she didn't hear the messenger Allah permit anything of what people were saying regarding lies, except in three circumstances in war, mending relations between people, and a man's conversation with his wife, and a wife with her husband.

00:22:11--> 00:22:19

What does that mean, in war, it means that war is based on deception.

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

When you are fighting in the battlefield, you have to deceive the enemy, that you are attacking from one location when in fact you're attacking from another location. So you will put out lies, send false information to them, so that you can

00:22:41--> 00:22:51

strategically surround them or get behind them, whatever. So, you know, war is based to a large degree on deception.

00:22:52--> 00:23:00

The second point that the process element was mentioned was mending relations between people.

00:23:01--> 00:23:28

Two people have word good friends are no longer any good friends. So what you do to mend it, you go to one and say, Well, look, listen, the other person, you know, actually, they want to make up they want to, you know, fix things, they really speak highly of you. And they say this versus what really, if that's the case, well, I'll be happy to meet with them. And they go to the other one and say the same thing. And they come together and

00:23:29--> 00:23:33

remove the bad feelings and bad

00:23:34--> 00:23:36

circumstances that existed between them.

00:23:38--> 00:23:41

The other example, given of

00:23:42--> 00:23:50

a man's conversation with his wife isn't, you know, private conversations with his wife, and the wife or their husband. You know, he may say things

00:23:52--> 00:24:01

to make her feel good. Even though they're not true. You know, for example, she might

00:24:04--> 00:24:06

get a new dress, and

00:24:08--> 00:24:15

he doesn't see this looking really that nice, but he will say, Oh, that's wonderful, beautiful, you know, really great, great, you know,

00:24:16--> 00:24:59

make her feel good. Telling her Hey, no, I don't like that dress. She's only gonna make her feel disappointed, sad, etc, etc. So similarly she can say the same thing about him. The man gets a new pairs of shoes. You know, she doesn't really like how they look but he is very happy about them. It's like this pair of shoes. So she says are very nice shoes. This, these are innocent, we don't want to call them white lies and get into white and black lies. These are we say innocent lies. That mean good. And the promises alum in that context, made it permissible and this is not a general opening of the door.

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

To You know, the ends justifying the means that you know, because your end is a good end, then you can use any, you know,

00:25:13--> 00:25:25

unacceptable means forbidden means lying, cheating, stealing, etc. Because my end is good I plan to do this. It's okay for me to lie, cheat, steal, etc.

00:25:27--> 00:25:31

Furthermore, in terms of hiding the

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


00:25:35--> 00:25:37

Allah warned against it

00:25:38--> 00:25:50

and made it something on which his curse would fall as well as the curse of all creatures.

00:25:51--> 00:26:01

So in order to stress the importance of sharing the message, the truth of Islam as a duty on Muslims, Allah warned that those who do not fulfill this duty

00:26:02--> 00:26:38

of the descent of his curse and the curse of all creatures upon them, Allah said then verse 159, of swell bacara in alladhina, extra mana Monza nominal by unity will Huda embody my baby and now with a nasty film, keytab, hula, hula, hula and on, indeed those who hide the clear scriptures and guidance that I have revealed, after I've made it clear to people in the Scripture, those are cursed by Allah and cursed by all who would curse

00:26:39--> 00:26:59

the other side Sunland Himself, He further stress the gravity of the sin of hiding knowledge, saying whoever hides knowledge by which a lot benefits people in their affairs or in the affairs of their religion. Allah will bridle him or her on the Day of Resurrection with a bridle from the hellfire.

00:27:01--> 00:27:02

So Bahama

00:27:05--> 00:27:58

have knowledge of Islam, but not conveyed to others indirectly constitutes hiding knowledge. It knowledge may be a deliberate act, when a person has the intention to keep the knowledge away from people. This may occur in cases where people are asked about Islam but refuse to reveal its teachings due to racial, tribal or political concerns. For example, in the years past, some Indians of Guyanese or Trinidadian origin refuse to teach African Guyanese and African trinidadians about Islam, due to the racist believes that Islam was only for Indians. Likewise, some African Americans followed the racist doctrines of the Nation of Islam, or were influenced by them. They have refused

00:27:59--> 00:28:05

to explain Islam to European Americans as they consider them to be devils are simply the enemy.

00:28:06--> 00:28:23

Hiding knowledge may also be a passive, unintentional act, whereby a person has the knowledge but neglects to convey it, due to reasons of shyness or feelings of inferiority. An example of passive hiding knowledge

00:28:24--> 00:28:41

may be found, in the case of many immigrant Muslims in the West, who live study and work among non Muslims all their lives without ever saying a single word to them about Islam. They converse about their non Muslim neighbors,

00:28:42--> 00:28:45

colleagues at work, and others,

00:28:46--> 00:28:51

talking about everything under the sun, except this lab.

00:28:52--> 00:29:13

acting according to the truth, being truthful doesn't just mean speaking the truth. It also means acting according to what we know to be the truth. The promises Allah addressed this responsibility and gave it three levels which are spoken about the different degrees previously.

00:29:14--> 00:29:21

It has three different levels of application according to the person that person's ability and circumstances.

00:29:22--> 00:29:32

The statement of the prophets Allah was mandurah main common Quran for the Ryobi it wherever amounted to CS evil should change it with his hands

00:29:33--> 00:29:52

failed. Um, yes, doTERRA fabrisonic. And if he is unable, that's him changing with this tongue for LMS doTERRA for the Toby, but Danica have the full email. And if he's still unable, let him do so in his heart, and that is the weakest level of faith.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

Now level one prohibition by the hand. Everyone was in a position of

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

Power and responsibility has to apply this particular level of prohibition wherever necessary. This represents the ultimate level of prohibition, and not necessarily the first to be applied. It is the level at which those in positions of authority should not shy away from. If all else fails. The promises element said every one of you is a shepherd, and every one of you responsible for his flock.

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

The mere governance of people who governs the people is the shepherd and he is responsible for his flock. The man is the shepherd over the people of his house, and he is responsible for that the woman is the shepherd of her husbands and children, and she is responsible for them. Thus, the Amir, who has in his hand the reins of power, has to make the people obey laws laws, if they refuse to follow that.

00:31:02--> 00:31:25

He has to bring the full force of the state into play, and establish Islam at the expense of all anti Islamic practices. It is not sufficient for him to have the power to make the people obey a law. And yet he only talks to them and forbids them in edicts or proclamations, which have no force behind them to back them up.

00:31:26--> 00:32:19

Similarly, the man has been placed in a position of authority over the woman in the household. It is his duty to see that Islam is practiced throughout his also, his wife wants to go outside half naked, with their hair and neck, arms and legs exposed, he has to make her stay inside, and not allow her out, unless she's properly dressed, according to the promises and lumps command. Verily, no more of a Muslim woman should show beyond her face and hands. It is not sufficient for him to tell her not to do so. If she doesn't heed his words, for he will be held responsible as the Emir of the house, even though she will have to answer for her rebellion against the laws laws. It is also

00:32:19--> 00:32:23

not sufficient for the wife to tell the children to pray at the age of 10.

00:32:25--> 00:33:02

She must make them break, even if it means punishing them. It is primarily the mother's responsibility to see that the children are the heir to the Islamic code of conduct, because she will more likely be in a more and more contact with them than the man, her husband, who is out of the home most of the time in order to provide the necessities of life for the whole family. As the promised asylum indicated, she will be held account accountable for whatever happens in the house in her husband's absence.

00:33:04--> 00:33:21

Level number two prohibition by speech. This level is mainly for those who are not in a position of higher authority, and do not have the power to stop the wrong with that. such individuals are encouraged to speak out against the evil

00:33:22--> 00:33:24

or write articles or books about it.

00:33:26--> 00:34:00

In fact, if the state is ruled by a heretical this desk bot, who threatens the life of all who oppose it, to speak out at that time becomes the greatest form of striving and a lost path. The promises are seldom stated, the best jihad is a truthful word spoken in the presence of a tyrant speaking out may take numerous forms. For example, it may even involve telling the back biter and slander to refrain from such stock.

00:34:02--> 00:34:10

To speak out in the case, in this case is obligatory as silence in Islam indicates consent and support.

00:34:11--> 00:34:36

Level three prohibition of the heart if one is unable to speak out against the prevalent evil, or if condemnation of the evil is likely to create greater harmful repercussions for oneself and others, than the benefit hoped to begin from its condemnation. It should instead be hated in the heart.

00:34:37--> 00:34:45

If he or she does this. They are they have fulfilled the requirements of commanding the good and forbidding the evil.

00:34:47--> 00:34:54

He forbade himself because that was all he could, or she could do.

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

If sin is perpetuated in why

00:35:00--> 00:35:13

presence and one's heart remains unmoved. The state of one's faith becomes questionable, regardless of the numbers of prescribed doctors worship, which they have done.

00:35:14--> 00:35:23

Faith is itself a spiritual action, which must produce a spiritual reaction when challenged.

00:35:25--> 00:35:26

The second

00:35:27--> 00:35:32

pillar of application from

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

Imam Ibn Paul

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

was to confirm where applicable.

00:35:41--> 00:35:45

Now this Divine Name is the absolute truth.

00:35:50--> 00:35:55

The absolute truth and hoc can never be wrong.

00:35:56--> 00:36:00

He makes no mistakes while all creatures make mistakes.

00:36:03--> 00:36:17

Allah is completely infallible, and no one else can claim this attribute or characteristic. Therefore, any attempts to give us creatures, the quality of infallibility should be totally rejected.

00:36:19--> 00:37:01

This is a fundamental part of the belief of the Shiite creed. Under the heading doctrine of the infallibility of the Imam, the author of the text, the faith of Shia Islam, wrote the following. We believe that, like the Prophet and the mom must be infallible, that is to say incapable of making errors or doing wrong either inwardly or outwardly, from his birth to his death, either intentionally or unintentionally, because the moms are the preservers of Islam, and it is under their protection.

00:37:03--> 00:37:14

The 10th century scholar Ibn Bob way, also known as chef, as sudo, stated in his excellent exposition of the Shiite Creed

00:37:16--> 00:37:28

II, who denies infallibility to them, in any matter pertaining to their status is ignorant of them, and as such is a cafe or disbeliever.

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

The Catholics amongst Christians also believe that once a pope is appointed, he becomes infallible.

00:37:38--> 00:37:48

And the Sufi is are also known to claim infallibility for their sts peers and chairs. But all that must be rejected

00:37:49--> 00:37:53

for application and believe

00:37:55--> 00:37:57

in Allah as ad hoc

00:37:59--> 00:38:02

for it to take place,

00:38:03--> 00:38:07

such beliefs have to be rejected, and opposed.

00:38:08--> 00:38:09

The third

00:38:11--> 00:38:25

pillar of application is to find hope, where there is a promise, the Divine Name of Hawk contains the divine promise that all that has been relayed to us by

00:38:27--> 00:38:46

Allah, and the Messenger of Allah is the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. So Paradise is real. And this pleasures are true, even though no eye has ever seen them, nor have they crossed about across the minds of anyone.

00:38:47--> 00:38:54

The Day of Judgment is truth, and everyone will be judged. With few exceptions.

00:38:55--> 00:39:22

the certainty of everything promised by Allah and His messenger will give the true believers hope in the future. Regardless of how hopeless the present and past may seem, it assures them that none of their efforts have gone in vain, and encourages them to continue to strive against all odds, in spite of any hurdles and difficulties they may find in their way.

00:39:25--> 00:39:34

They find comfort in knowing that the prophets explanation that those who receive the most trials in this life for the profits,

00:39:35--> 00:39:43

and then those most like them, and then those most likely, this promise is completely true.

00:39:44--> 00:39:59

So they are secretly happy with the trials of life, knowing that with every difficulty comes ease, and that their trials are affirmation of the closeness to Allah and not vice versa.

00:40:01--> 00:40:02

The fourth

00:40:04--> 00:40:10

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

00:40:11--> 00:40:29

this Divine Name of hock the truth, the embodiment of truth, does not contain any warning. However, the warning comes in the fact that everything that Alon is messenger has warned us about Israel and 100%.

00:40:30--> 00:41:01

So the Hellfire Israel, and its punishments are true facts, though no one has seen it, nor ever imagined it, no one has died and come back to confirm it. The scales in which our deeds will be read, weighed, are real. And the books of these are given to us in either our right hands or our left hand, if we are righteous in the right. And if we're sinful in the left behind our backs, they are real and true.

00:41:03--> 00:41:05

As the Lord said, Because john

00:41:06--> 00:41:10

was Captain Barton, in non bartylla, Canada who

00:41:11--> 00:41:24

declared the truth has come and falsehood has vanished. Indeed, falsehood is bound to vanish. So Alice raw, first anyone

00:41:26--> 00:41:28

knowing that, of course,

00:41:29--> 00:41:32

it should drive the believers

00:41:33--> 00:41:34


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

avoid the evil consequences of not following the truth.

00:41:43--> 00:41:49

It should motivate them to do as much as they can in this life while they are living.

00:41:50--> 00:41:52

Knowing that once they die,

00:41:53--> 00:41:55

that is it. No one can help them.

00:41:57--> 00:42:09

Those who promise that when they go in the grave when when we die, and we go in the grave if we are one of their followers, they will be there to give us the answers.

00:42:10--> 00:42:13

asked by the angels

00:42:15--> 00:42:25

know that they are lying. They're lying to us. When we have left this life, there is no one who can help us.

00:42:26--> 00:42:31

We only are stepping towards the judgment that each and every one of us

00:42:32--> 00:42:33

is real.

00:42:35--> 00:42:46

And those some people wonder how it is that people die 10,000 years ago, they're waiting around 10,000 years

00:42:47--> 00:42:50

until we die and

00:42:51--> 00:42:56

go to judgment if we are the last generation. No,

00:42:57--> 00:43:00

we all go to judgment together.

00:43:01--> 00:43:20

When people died 10,000 years ago, they're no longer in the timezone governed by time. So whether you died 10,000 years ago, or 50,000 years ago, or five years ago, it's all the same. Once we leave this world

00:43:22--> 00:43:29

we asked the last month Allah to keep us firmly on the truth. I will close our session

00:43:30--> 00:43:34

by calling on Allah using this name.

00:43:35--> 00:43:36

Oh Allah.

00:43:37--> 00:43:38


00:43:39--> 00:43:46

You are the ultimate truth. So guidance to live by your truth and to die upon your choices.

00:43:47--> 00:44:17

Make us of those who remind ourselves and advise others about the certainty of the truth protectors with your truth from the deceptions of Satan and his followers. Yeah, Huck. Yeah, Allah help us to reflect upon and accept the truth of the Quran. The truth of the Sunnah and the truth of the life to come brantas the reality of Paradise

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


00:44:21--> 00:44:46

Aloma I didn't know how can or cannot devar vibrational Barton about in that. But zoek Nacht Inaba or last show us the truth as truths and provide us the way to follow it and show us falsehood as false. and grant us the means to refrain from it.

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

I mean,

00:44:50--> 00:44:55

with that, we complete our presentation.

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

That is the 58th

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

name in our session session 41

00:45:05--> 00:45:10

barakallahu li calm Salam aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.

00:45:12--> 00:45:20

will now shift to our q&a session, as usual,

00:45:22--> 00:45:27

and begin to answer our questions.

00:45:41--> 00:45:42

The first question

00:45:48--> 00:45:50

from Abu Adam saho.

00:45:52--> 00:45:57

What is your advice to Muslims living in western countries?

00:45:59--> 00:46:04

How will they be united and promoting Islamic cultures

00:46:05--> 00:46:16

rather than their own cultures to get Islam advanced in the West? Well, my general advice to Muslims living in minority

00:46:19--> 00:46:26

communities, whether in the west or the east, is that they should live together,

00:46:27--> 00:46:29

live close to each other.

00:46:31--> 00:46:35

By participate in activities together,

00:46:36--> 00:46:44

set up whatever elements are needed to make our communities thriving.

00:46:45--> 00:46:50

As the Chinese wherever they go, there is a

00:46:54--> 00:46:56

Chinese area

00:46:58--> 00:47:04

which is known to the society in the communities as Chinatown.

00:47:07--> 00:47:29

We should have Muslim town, wherever we go. There should be Muslim town for Chinatown there. They're creating this community for purely materialistic reasons and goals. And they may become dens of crime and criminality and all these other kinds of things.

00:47:32--> 00:47:33

And this is not something new.

00:47:34--> 00:47:45

You know, we had in Toronto, we had a place which was called Little Italy, because the Italians stayed there, though, you know, so

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

people tend to congregate together.

00:47:51--> 00:47:55

But unfortunately, me because Muslims are not one

00:47:57--> 00:47:58

race, or

00:48:00--> 00:48:01

we could say

00:48:02--> 00:48:03


00:48:04--> 00:48:17

then our communities should be reflected, you know, our diversity should be reflected in our communities.

00:48:19--> 00:48:20

And that makes us unique.

00:48:22--> 00:48:36

So this is my advice. And of course, it was the promise of someone's advice. When he said that he was innocent of anyone who dies in the midst of disbelievers

00:48:39--> 00:48:52

bad Muslims, where they are minorities, they should be together, they shouldn't see a right next to them all around them in front to the right to the left to the back.

00:48:53--> 00:49:04

The light of the non Muslims surrounding now they should form a community obviously, those are the end, the outer ring are going to see but

00:49:05--> 00:49:29

it's talking about the majority of people. So they should create these kinds of cities and they shouldn't be ghettos. You know, where there is, nobody else is welcome and so on. So no, no, it should still be open to the general public people can come through, participate, enter restaurants, you know, etc. Should be open. It's not,

00:49:30--> 00:49:32

you know, closing in on ourselves.

00:49:37--> 00:49:48

Next question, if I have $100 to give to charity, which would give me the most rewards sadaqa jariya.

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


00:49:53--> 00:49:55

digging a water well

00:49:56--> 00:49:58

for Southern food

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

alleviating the suffering of people, for example, in Yemen,

00:50:07--> 00:50:26

well, in general, Southern Nigeria, you know, will continue to benefit people. But you can alleviate the suffering of people in Yemen by going and digging a well there. So you're doing two things at the same time you're alleviating the suffering. And you are leaving behind a sadhaka. Jerry,

00:50:28--> 00:50:30

from our

00:50:31--> 00:50:34

Instagram, students, and others,

00:50:35--> 00:50:39

a lot of people say by reciting certain names of

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

wazifa bring certain effects.

00:50:47--> 00:50:56

In this mid back, is this the data are allowed. It's not allowed. It is bidda it is false hood and misguidance.

00:51:01--> 00:51:06

Paragon damage solski, where I live,

00:51:07--> 00:51:20

the nikka has done between parents spouses are not present. Is this type of type of nikka valid? Or is the man obliged to be there during the nikka?

00:51:22--> 00:51:28

Well, the norm is that they should be there. Both should be present. But if they have

00:51:29--> 00:51:37

agents who represent them, and who have the authority to represent them, it can be done that way else.

00:51:38--> 00:51:46

It's not the norm, it should not be enforced. But if people choose to do it that way, it is permissible.

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

asifa shop now

00:51:52--> 00:51:55

believes misled humans

00:51:56--> 00:51:58

who misled a police

00:51:59--> 00:52:03

is not our main enemy or Emily's

00:52:06--> 00:52:09

Emily's misled himself

00:52:12--> 00:52:17

by his bride, that is the original sin.

00:52:19--> 00:52:22

The Original Sin is pride.

00:52:24--> 00:52:27

Out of pride, they refuse to bow before Adam.

00:52:28--> 00:52:42

And that sent him down a path he could have come out of it. He could have backed off and repented and all but he chose not. his pride kept him on

00:52:44--> 00:52:45

challenging a lot, etc.

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

Who is who

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

is our main enemy?

00:52:54--> 00:53:18

It depends. I mean enemy can be our nafs at some times, and our main enemy could be outside of the naps could be people around us, society, all kinds of things. So it just depends on the particular issue. Where the effect is greatest

00:53:23--> 00:53:25

Instagram students.

00:53:27--> 00:53:33

I'm a teacher, but I like my student. She's too young. 13 years old, I'm a sinner.

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

Watch what you feel in your heart. What goes through your mind you're not held accountable for

00:53:47--> 00:53:49

unless you speak on it.

00:53:50--> 00:53:52

That means you promote it.

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

Or you act on it. And it was forbidden.

00:53:59--> 00:54:05

But to be attracted by a 13 year old This is not acid.

00:54:08--> 00:54:09


00:54:10--> 00:54:14

That's a girl was reached the age of puberty.

00:54:16--> 00:54:19

A young woman from Islamic perspective.

00:54:21--> 00:54:45

Jazz Allison, my mother curses me when she is angry. But when our mood is okay, she gives a lot of da How do I take it? I'm very much afraid of the curse. Yeah, you shouldn't be afraid of curses, whether from your mother or from anybody. Yeah, Lord, protect us all from the curses of those around us.

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

As some

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


00:54:50--> 00:54:53

do humans have a choice

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


00:54:57--> 00:55:00

are we just like a feather or

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

leaf in the wind.

00:55:03--> 00:55:04

We have a choice.

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

However, we are still leaves in the wind.

00:55:15--> 00:55:25

Maximus asks, Why does the Lord pray for the prophet in store? 33 i 56.

00:55:28--> 00:55:29

And who does he pray to?

00:55:32--> 00:55:34

Allah and His angels

00:55:37--> 00:55:39

invoke blessings

00:55:40--> 00:55:41

and peace

00:55:42--> 00:55:44

on the Prophet

00:55:50--> 00:55:58

as you have the translation they are aligned His angels bless the Prophet didn't say, they prayed to the Prophet.

00:56:02--> 00:56:05

It's translated as blessing the Prophet because

00:56:06--> 00:56:17

Salah Allah nabby, even for us, when we say Allahumma salli ala Muhammad, this is not praying

00:56:18--> 00:56:21

to Prophet Mohammed says it's praying for him.

00:56:23--> 00:56:24

It's praying for him.

00:56:26--> 00:56:28

Now in terms of Allah,

00:56:29--> 00:56:39

the angels when they pray, okay, they would pray to Allah to bless Muhammad SAW Allah

00:56:40--> 00:56:48

when Allah blesses, he blesses directly. There is no one is going to pray to to bless him.

00:56:50--> 00:56:54

He blesses him He is the one who is the source of all blessings.

00:57:04--> 00:57:05


00:57:07--> 00:57:08

Demis solski ski

00:57:09--> 00:57:11

is wiping the face after

00:57:12--> 00:57:13

doing prayer.

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

Turning the head to the right than the left bidder, or encouraged.

00:57:24--> 00:57:25

Oh, after finishing prayer,

00:57:28--> 00:57:45

after finishing prayer, you turn your head to the right turn head to the left. That is the actual finishing of the prayer at the task names which end the prayer. So we say Salaam Alaikum to the right now they come to the left, they will start tomorrow with our cattle.

00:57:47--> 00:57:50

But it's all Salaam Alaikum even is permissible

00:57:51--> 00:57:52

process and

00:57:54--> 00:57:56

now the issue is

00:57:58--> 00:58:05

after doing that, then wiping your face. There is no basis for that. That is something invented.

00:58:07--> 00:58:11

But if you did it because your face was sweaty,

00:58:12--> 00:58:20

you know, it is in a cold place. Your hands are warm and put some warmth on your face. No problem.

00:58:22--> 00:58:25

But doing it believing that it's good.

00:58:26--> 00:58:33

pleasing to Allah adds blessings to your prayer is Buddha innovation in the religion

00:58:35--> 00:58:37

from Instagram.

00:58:40--> 00:58:46

How do you handle fake Muslims, the ones who pretend to love Allah to get something?

00:58:48--> 00:58:49


00:58:50--> 00:58:52

we don't have the ability

00:58:54--> 00:59:01

to judge people as fake Muslims. Unless they tell us they're fake Muslims.

00:59:03--> 00:59:15

Because if you're assuming so and so is a fake Muslim because of this, because that's because of the other. They did something you didn't like. They didn't think it was appropriate or whatever. And we don't have the right

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

to call them fake Muslims.

00:59:18--> 00:59:21

Unless they say Listen, I'm a fake Muslim.

00:59:22--> 00:59:53

I just pretend to be a Muslim. Because of this data. They they told you that they reveal that to you. That's another issue. If they've told you that you tried to guide them, encourage them to become real Muslims, true Muslims. That's what's on you. Okay, the last question for today is that Amina who asks, If I miss fudger prayer, and forget to make it up

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

upon waking awakening, due to other obligations. They

01:00:00--> 01:00:08

Have to do a law all them? Oh, does Allah hold them hold me accountable?

01:00:11--> 01:00:19

Well, if you have forgotten, you know, the process and explain that, where we have forgotten something a lot doesn't hold us accountable.

01:00:21--> 01:00:28

So the point is that when you remember, then pray if you missed it a tragic, you know, you came all the way to

01:00:30--> 01:00:42

you know, before the door, you remember, Oh, I forgot to do prayer, you know, you can do it, do it then. Or if later in the day, you remember, you can do it then?

01:00:44--> 01:00:48

No, no, I have it spread going over days and days doing it.

01:00:50--> 01:00:52

That's a lot of those best.

01:00:53--> 01:01:09

You can do it. Nobody has stated it or promoted it, etc. But if you chose to do it, it's up to Allah. Whether you will accept it at that time we just make, you know, ask about forgiveness for it, and carry on.

01:01:10--> 01:01:13

Okay, our last question now from Instagram.

01:01:14--> 01:01:16

wife doesn't want to stay with an

01:01:18--> 01:01:46

uncommon husband, is it okay? If the wife doesn't want to stay with an alcoholic husband? What do you mean by Stay, stay meaning remain married to she has the right differ husband is an alcoholic to divorce him. That is her right? Or she can choose to stay with him and work on him trying to get him to give it up. If he doesn't give it up, she can seek to divorce him, it's perfectly legitimate.

01:01:48--> 01:02:13

If the husband is not praying regularly, you only praise on Fridays or something like this. Similarly, if he doesn't fast, Ramadan is smoking is doing other things. Similarly, any of the basic rites and rituals and principles of Islam. If a person abandons them, then their husband or wife have the right to divorce them.

01:02:15--> 01:02:15


01:02:19--> 01:02:37

we have a last question that just popped up from immigration Christian who asks, Why do Muslims kiss stones? Is that not a pagan practice? God is one, and they are mighty. And we don't need stones? Well,

01:02:39--> 01:02:48

Muslims kissing stones, I don't know I have not kissed any stones except for the black stone, in the corner of the Kaaba.

01:02:49--> 01:02:58

This is the Kaaba, the house of worship, built in Makkah, by this by Prophet Abraham and his son, my.

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

Now, the kissing of the black stone

01:03:05--> 01:03:07

is an act

01:03:09--> 01:03:27

signifying the love for love for the building love for what Allah has prescribed there it is the beginning of toe off the act of circumambulating. The Kaaba walking around it in walking worship.

01:03:29--> 01:03:44

So it is not meant any more than that when the pope flies anywhere he gets off the plane. As soon as he gets off the plane, which is the ground, he bows down and he kisses the ground.

01:03:45--> 01:03:54

People do it all around the world. What does that mean? Are they worshiping the ground? Of course not. So you know, we kiss many things without worshipping them, you kiss your wife.

01:03:56--> 01:04:07

Your wife is created by God, the stone was created by God. So if you kiss your wife, does that mean that you're worshipping her? Is that pagan? No. So

01:04:08--> 01:04:27

when you have an idol, and people are worshipping the idol and you kiss the aisle, that's a whole nother story. That that you are then in idolatry. But if you make a picture of Jesus, you put him on a cross. And you go and you kiss that cross and people do it because the cross

01:04:29--> 01:04:34

back is idolatry. Because you are worshipping a man

01:04:37--> 01:04:56
