this is session 42
in which we'll be looking at the name
of the movie and declare the manifest
which is named number 59 in our series
and I should mention also this is part one
as the material of this section is quite long
trying to keep within our
one hour session
this is part one
the Quranic location
on only one
in the Quran
where Allah says yo ma Even you are fee him Allahu the nahoon and Huck
Allah Muna and Allahu Allah, mobi
that they allow will pay them in full their deserved recompense and they will know that it is a law who represents the clear truth
linguistically Moby in comes from the trilateral route by yeah known of the verb
Joby know from Ban urbania been was verbal now in this Bian, Bian
which has three basic meanings.
The first meaning is to be far, the second meaning is to be away from and the third meaning is to be clear.
Moby is the present participle, coming from the Elif augmented form abana
on the pattern of Allah,
which means to make something far make it distant, and at the same time to make it clear
the trilateral route appears 523 times in the Quran in 13 different forms.
Examples of these forms can be found in
ubay You know, it makes clear
Albanian at declare proofs and Moby in clear.
Relative to Allah the Divine Name al mobian is the one who is far from and far above, resembling anything in his creation.
Furthermore, his names and attributes are clear in their meanings as he revealed them to clarify for creation who he is, and who isn't.
He has clarified the truth from falsehood in this life, and he will ultimately do so on the Day of Judgment.
Allah also describes the Quran as movie in porcine meme tilka ayodele Kitab al movie in
bossy and meme, these are the verses of the clear book.
That's in Surah classes verse 25.
They also have in Surah, Zohar of
verses one and two have meme while keytab in movie in.
I mean by the scripture that makes things clear.
Allah Almighty described his final book of Revelation using the Divine Name, Al Moby and, of course, it's in the indefinite form, not the definite form.
Oh, sorry. It is in the definite form here but it's referring to the book and
His book it's a laws book. So it is in keeping with the uniqueness of the name to Allah Spano tala,
Al Kitab, will move in
indicating that this unique characteristic of absolute clarity can be found throughout its chapters and verses. The Quran clarified all the confusion that had resulted from the loss of the Torah, by the Jews, and especially the later complete loss of the gospel of Jesus by the Christians. The Office of the current four gospels used by Christians are unknown.
When questions are asked about the gospel of Jesus, they say, well, there was no book, you know, the his gospel is the message that he brought, that he is the Son of God. And
there is a God the Father, and there is also a God, the Holy Spirit. You know, this is his gospel, and that those who believe in it will inherit paradise, of course, what to do with all the generations that came before
millions and millions and millions who never heard this gospel.
This is a false claim. The message of Jesus was no different from the message of Prophet Moses.
More than half of the world's Christians are Roman Catholics. Their version of the Bible was published in 1582 by Jerome's Latin vulgate, from Jerome's Latin vulgate and reproduced in duais. In 1609, the Old Testament of the Roman Catholic version contains seven more books than the King James virgin, recognize by the Protestant world. The extra books referred to as the Apocrypha, meaning of doubtful authority were removed from the Bible in 1611, by Protestant Bible scholars.
More importantly, Aramaic was the spoken language of the Jews of Palestine during the time of Christ. consequence consequently, it is believed that Jesus and his disciples spoke and taught in Aramaic. According to biblical scholars, the earliest oral traditions of Jesus's deeds and sayings, and undoubtedly, circulated in Aramaic, like the Coptic Gospel of Thomas, originally thought to be composed in Aramaic. However, the well known four gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and john, followed by Catholic and Protestant Christians alike, were written in an entirely different language, that of common Greek, which was the spoken language of the civilized Mediterranean world, supposedly, to
serve the majority of the church, which was becoming Hellenistic that is Greek speaking, instead of Palestinian.
Koran, on the other hand, is far above being compared to any other ancient scripture.
It was impeccably preserved in its original language, Arabic, both in writing and in memory, as no other religious or non religious text has ever been preserved in the history of the world.
It is a clear proof bayona it is mubi in itself, that it is authentic and unique. It clarifies for all times, truth from falsehood and guidance from misguidance.
Moving on to the application according to even batal four principles, the first of which is to adopt where applicable.
The Divine Name Albion, is directly applicable by simply following the clear way which a law animal been made abundantly clear for us. Islam is the straight path route to mustafi
Which we pray for at least 17 times every day at the beginning of each unit of prayer.
the straight path comes from two main sources, the Quran and the Sunnah.
Allah Allah will be in states in no uncertain terms that are the Jah Khun min Allah He knew rune wakita boom movie, there has come to you from Allah, a light, and a clear book, movie in.
We should try our utmost to make sure that we've complete reading the whole Quran from cover to cover in our own languages, which is actually a tafsir translations are tough series or commentaries, if we don't understand Arabic, at least once in our lives as a minimum.
what each and every one of us should strive to do.
And in this way, we apply this Divine Name directly in our lives practically in our lives.
Well, those of us who do understand Arabic, we should read all Koran with tafsir. That is a commentary at least once in our lives.
We should use commentaries of the Quran, such as tafsir and Nicosia to gain a better and more in depth understanding of its meanings. We shouldn't be satisfied with merely reciting the words of the Quran in Arabic
like parrots without understanding them, as most people do today, how else can the Quran become a source of guidance as a lot described it and if I mean the alley Kalki tabula rasa Buffy who then lil Matata when
I left LA, I mean this is the book in which there is no doubt guidance for the God conscious. Therefore, we must treat the verses and chapters of the Quran as signposts for our way through this life that were meant to keep us focused on our final destination paradise. Likewise, we should carefully study the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad SAW Allah, which a law called the light
as a law also described him as being movie in a clear Warner. Now the role will be in in Surah, sad, sad, verse 70.
In you ha la
Illa and an interview room movie. It has not been revealed, except to me that I am a clear Warner
Prophet Muhammad wa sallam lived the teachings of the Quran completely.
When Ayesha was asked about his character, he said his character was the one
that he was a living Koren walking, talking.
He was not like a postman,
who delivers a letter and is unaware and unconcerned about its contents. Much of the Quran is specifically directed to the prophets the laws, requiring him to convey its message in both his words and his actions.
In many of its verses, it specifically instructed him how to address the idol worshipping people the Quraysh, to whom he was sent, and what to say to the Christians and the Jews, who are present in the Arabian Peninsula and beyond.
Quran was revealed to him in order that he explained to humankind what was to be revealed for their benefit.
A lot of mobian adjust the prophets Allah making this point as clear as day saying,
find zelner la casa dechra me to buy in a nasty minute Zilla ad and I have revealed to you the reminder in order for you to clarify for people what was revealed
To them to clarify his little bayona
just sort of sod verse 17. Therefore, it is just as important to read the compilations of the prophets Sunnah,
containing his statements, actions and approvals, which we call hadiths
in order to properly understand how to apply the Quran, in our daily lives
This can be achieved by daily regular readings from any of the various authentic heavy collections, like fortress of a Muslim
on daily separation supplications and prayers for virtually every occasion,
the best of Islam,
which I wrote, on whatever the prophet SAW Allah Almighty Allah described as the best.
And the 40 hadith of a Naui a general compilation of well known hobbies on various topics. We are the solid hain Hadees on character and morals Mischka to masabi at least covering all of the various chapters of
and of course Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim and the for sunon.
Academy the unnecessary abodo an imager.
These were had these encyclopedias organized according to fit chapters. I use mostly as reference works for research on virtually any topic.
reviving the sooner
I'm read now,
go to the prophet SAW Solomon saying
know that whoever revives one of my son nuts, which died out after me will have a reward like all those who act upon it without diminishing their reward in any way.
A wonderful example of this dead Sunnah
is the need
to revive the Sunnah of sujood Ashoka.
This is part of
implementing the name
Allah, Allah will move in
as his Ivana or clarification came through the prophets Allah and he called the prophet SAW solemn light. So we are supposed to be connected to that light. Of course, some people have gone to extremes in different directions and said Actually, he was a light. And this light came from a lot split off from the light of Allah. Allah is notice so My watch is the light of the heavens and the earth. So from that light, that special,
divine light, a portion split off, which was Prophet Muhammad SAW salah
and that portion walked the earth
without a shadow. They even wrote a book about him
in Pakistan called the shadowless profits. So that's a whole nother set of fairytales. It's not.
When the prophet SAW Selim referred to
himself as a guide, or a lawyer referred to him as light, it was one on the same
as light gives us guidance in darkness. Prophet Muhammad wa sallam was the light, he was the guide.
And of course it means that all of the Sooners, which he did all of the actions, sayings and approvals, which he did, which were meant
to be legally applied by all Muslims,
these should be protected.
And if any of them dies out, we should strive to bring them back to life and that's why the poster seven gave such a big reward.
That any sooner which we revive and people follow and begin doing it and passing it on to others and others and others. The reward they get for acting on that sooner which had died.
Also, it's like Southern Nigeria.
I have been stressing in the last two years,
the soju the sugar.
Because having personally visited Muslim communities all around the world, from Mindanao, Philippines, to Freetown, Sierra Leone, Africa, and Georgetown, Guyana and South America, and having asked
students and adults, about the gratitude prostration.
Finding that virtually nobody
Many didn't know about it at all.
It is clear that this was a dead sea,
except amongst the scholars who knew about it, and practiced it.
I concluded that this needed to be revived.
Consequently, I have sought to remind Muslims about it, whenever I'm given the opportunity, and here is the chaps.
Especially considering that is one of the best remedies for depression.
Suicide being as a result of repression of depression, among the biggest killers of human beings today,
who starts indicate that there is 264 million people suffering from depression. Now 264 million,
of course, they're not all going to commit suicide, it's only a fraction of them. But even that fraction is massive, you know, making it for young people between the ages of 19 and 35, making it the second most
biggest killer of young people,
So I pray that you all will participate with me in reviving it, wherever you may be in the world.
sharing it with those around you.
And adding to my reward, that's kind of really, one might say, but
it's the promise of the process.
I enjoy and encourage you to be a part of its revival.
This name it will be in Divine Name
also speaks to maraca
checking ourselves, calling ourselves to account
a lot of movie in will ultimately clarify everything for us on the Day of Judgment, when it all lies will be exposed and the truth can no longer be escaped. So as believers in that day, we need to call ourselves to account before we are called to account as Caliph, Omar yBnL hottub had advised
as believers, we owe it to ourselves to check on our intentions regarding everything that we do, we should do so before an act while doing it. And after we have done it without a regular established system of self checking, checking, we will always be regretting after the fact saying If only I'd done or not done this or that.
We will continue to remain fossilized frozen in time and capable of change, talking about the need for change and wishing that we could change someday, but never actually changing until it is too late.
I'll move in says so worship whatever you will besides him,
tell them indeed the real losers are the ones who will lose themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection. unquestionably, that is the manifest last.
Al Hassan al movie

We need to act now. rather than waiting until it becomes too late to do anything. The only way to do that is to take regular account of our actions, our thoughts and our desires and taking account of them means correcting them and not merely reflecting on them. Reflecting is the beginning, but without action, it will be an exercise in futility.
Moving on to the second principle of given backhaul for application, and that is to confirm where unique and inapplicable
Alma been among laws names stresses the fact that a law has made clear everything that human beings need to know from the beginning of life until its end.
Until the people of Paradise relax in the pleasures of Paradise, and the people of hell. Enter the hellfire.
Islam was fully and clearly explained by the prophet SAW.
no ambiguity was left confusing people, as his companions regularly asked him for clarity, and recorded in their memories and in their writings, his answers. So any attempt to add to Islam, by way of inner explanations, and secret teachings should be immediately and thoroughly rejected. Those who claim that Islam is like a peanut. The outer shell is the shediac the law and the peanuts on the inside is the hoppy pa the inner reality known only to an adept few, who have inherited that knowledge from a chain of Enlightened Masters ending with the Prophet Muhammad, Allah Himself. However, the prophets are selling himself laid waste to such a claim saying, direct to come Allah da
da lei aloha kanheri Nyah zerbo on her body Illa Holic
I am leaving you upon a path of brightness, whose night is like its day. Anyone who deviates from it after I'm gone is doomed.
Others will try to add to the outer teachings and practices under the heading of good bid aisles that is good religious in innovations were soundly rejected by the promise or summon statement, which Jabir ibn Abdullah related that he regularly said in his hookbaits public speeches in Asda pal Hideki tabula,
the most truthful word is the book of Allah. Well, Arsenal Buddha,
Buddha Mohammed or Heidi Muhammad
and the best source of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Sharon Morimoto,
akula Mahadeva akula be the attend Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah Allah tin Finn now, the worst of all affairs in religion are those that are newly invented for every newly invented matter
in religion is an heretical innovation and every innovation is misguidance
and every misguidance is ultimately leading to the hellfire.
So there is no good with that. Yes, there is a statement attributed to Mr. Malhotra
we said this was the best of breed as well. This was a good bidder. Nice with that.
After bringing the people together for taraweeh in the masjid, they were praying separately, after the prophet SAW Selim died and he made them all prayed together in a Jabbar.
And he said, Now Iman did that.
Very Nice, nice. But he was using the term bidda
according to the Sharia, meaning the Sharia meaning of Buddha when the prophet SAW Solomon said every bit
misguidance he was not using it that way when he said this is the good bit Ah,
goodness guidance. No, he is using it linguistically because with art means just
innovation, making them a hub in the master, this is a good bit.
Adding a minaret to the master, that's a good bigger,
adding lights inside the master that's wonderful with that, but in carpets in the masjid, these are all better. But there would be that
they are from the linguistic perspective. When the prophet SAW Selim had said every bidder is misguidance, he's talking about bidding in religion.
We have to be clear on that because people take
O'Meara hardtops statement out of context, and tries try to defend these practices as good with that, just as Omar did, but know what we're doing and calling it good Buddha is not what Omar did.
Because actually, if you even look at the act of praying in Gema, tarawih, or pm or
tahajjud, because that's what it is, anyway.
Prophet Muhammad wa sallam did it.
When he went into the masjid for the first couple of days, he did it. People lined up with him, and they prayed with him. And then he went home and finished the rest of Ramadan, praying in his own with his family.
And he explained that he did that, because he didn't want people to think that it was obligatory, to pray in JAMA in the masjid. So did Omar bring something new? No,
No, he didn't. The act of having the people
pray together was new relative to them praying individually after the process and then died. And during the time of
Abubakar Khalifa Barker,
until in his own rain, or his own rule, he changed it. And also you could say in the time of preference, they were doing it to, you know, except in the beginning.
he did not bring something into the religion which wasn't already in it. This is the point.
Allah has explained in detail,
who he is through his names and attributes and what our obligation is to Allah, and what it is not the Islamic faith, the rules of worship, and business transactions, all social affairs, personal affairs, and all that is needed by human society, in any place, and at any time. The rules governing the end of this world.
resurrection, judgment, reward and punishment, etc. have all been made clear, as the law said in store and the swab was 12
bucola, Shea in futsal, now hooter sila, and I have explained everything in detail.
So Furthermore, the prophets are sanland responsibility was to provide all the genuine
guidance necessary for Muslims to follow until the last day of this world.
Consequently, no additions to the religion of Islam were necessary to improve, complete or make it up to date.
Meaning that what Western civilization has arrived at as its governing principle democracy cannot be in any way superior to the Sharia. Because this is a fitna, or difficulty that
Muslims are faced globally today.
What to do with Sharia. When democracy is now in demand everywhere, we want democracy.
But most people don't really understand what democracy is.
Both the name and concept of democracy originated in ancient Greece. It meant rule of the people
in the ancient
Greek states, particularly Athens, slaves and women, were excluded from the vote. So only a minority of the inhabitants 20 to 30% were active citizens who could actually worked.
And they were making all the decisions
for the society. So was this the rule of the people? No, it was the rule of the free males.
so from it's very inception,
the meaning that is associated with it was not applied. the realities of Western democracies today are actually not much different. In fact, the minority, which rules has become even smaller in the United States of America, which goes through the motions of elections every four years in order to give the population the illusion that is participate actively in governing itself.
The absence of free education from kindergarten to PhD, ensures that the mass of society cannot participate in government.
The high cost of tertiary education also prevents most people from the lower classes from elevating themselves in society.
However, if a poll were taken amongst American citizens,
the vast majority of them would favor free education, free health care, and subsidized housing.
free education stops at the end of high school, not because it is economically impossible to continue, but because it is necessary to keep the majority dependent on the explanations of the minority. Countries like Libya, Sudan, and others, have managed to provide free education in spite of their economic difficulties. It is important to note that democracy as perceived by Western thinkers, is not merely a political tool, but a social principle and a philosophy.
They boldly states that Western democracy reaches beyond the confines of government, and affects all phases of human relations.
Democracy is a way of life, a new secular religion, based on three main principles. The first principle is that of equality.
From the nationalist or the rationalist, humanist viewpoint, all human beings, over and above differences of class, race, sex, nationality, religion,
have one common traits, the ability to reason.
This principle is not in opposition to Islamic teachings. However, the emphasis on equality in Islam lies in the belief in God, were equally responsible and capable of believing in God. The prophet SAW Selim was quoted as saying, every child is born with a natural belief in God. So, this is where equality lies after that, everything else in life is unequal.
Allah put some above others and you explain, you know, this was to try them to test them etc. But who is equal after that?
The second principle
is known as rational empiricism.
Fundamentally, it implies full confidence in human reason and experience. It is suppose that human the human mind has the ability to deduce from historical and personal experience what is in fact best for human society. However, this is not really the case. For example, the American Constitution, written by the best and most trusted and enlightened minds of the 18th century, contains an article which is so fundamentally unjust and incorrect, that it defies come
prehension by the modern enlightened mind, Article One, Section two, entitled The three fifths compromise, stated that black men, slaves at the time were to be counted as three fifths of a white man.
It's offers were all slave owners, who did not consider this slaves their equal. Consequently, when writing that historical document, they merely express the ideas and beliefs of the ruling class
of their times.
human reason and experience failed to arrive that what was in fact, just
any review of the legal systems of Europe, Asia or Africa all indicate that human law makers make laws according to their own sectarian or class interests. They have great difficulty in being truly objective. Consequently, Islamic civilization holds that only God who created human beings knows their needs, and who has no vested interest in any class only can legislate absolutely fair laws. Human input is restricted to the implementation of the Divine laws and the deduction of secondary laws.
The third principle of democracy
is referred to as discussion and consent. Sounds good. It is a mechanism by which democratic decisions are made. decision is based on the democratic view that no one possesses absolute truth. Therefore, all sides to an argument must be given free expression.
No truth is so certain that it may not be challenged.
Sounds good from one point of view, but when you start to look at its application,
it's chaos. After hearing everyone's views, decisions are made by the majority vote.
That is, what we called discussion and consent. Consequently, truth or falsehood, good and evil all become relative. This is the problem.
As is often said, One man's meat is another man's poison.
Furthermore, what is good today can become evil tomorrow. And what was evil today can become good tomorrow.
The social consequences of this principle is the removal of any foundation for stable morality or moral principles in society. Finished.
Anything goes for example, the book Catcher in the Rye,
which was declared pornographic and banned in the 50s
is currently required reading and Canadian high schools.
I'm speaking about that because I grew up with Canada. When I was in high school, it was bad.
by the mid 70s onwards, it became required reading. How,
since 1976, another example, every issue of a mainstream British newspaper called the sun
contained nude and semi nude photographs of females on page three, well no, page three of the sun. Similar pictures in playboy magazines caused it to be labeled as pornographic in the 60s.
today, it's art.
It's a normal, nobody dares to label these images pornographic anymore.
classical case that is, is that of the homosexual en slot in the latter part of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century.
The average Westerner was asked about his or her view on homosexual homosexuality in the 50s and the 60s, they would immediately respond that it was sick, degenerate, perverts, etc.
They were religious, they might even quote the Bible in which it is referred to as an abomination unto the Lord. psychiatrists of that period included it in their main reference works as a mental illness, and suggested treatments ranging from shock therapy to drug therapy. However, if the same question were asked in the 70s and the early 80s, the response would have been that homosexuality is a personal choice, and alternative lifestyle,
or, as some say, different strokes for different folks. Consequently, homosexuality has been stricken from
the psychiatrists Bible,
only to be replaced by another illness called homophobia.
Those who despise and oppose homosexuality, and those practices are now labeled homophobic, and are sent to the psychiatrists couch for treatment. Western civilization swung from one extreme end of the moral spectrum to the totally opposite, based on democratic principles.
During the 50s and the 60s,
sexual revolution began in the West, culminating in the removal of fornication and adultery from the law books as punishable crimes. When modern Western legislators analyzed fornication and marriage, they concluded that the only difference between the two was a piece of paper, the marriage certificate, it was only religious influence
the 10 commandments that had made fornication illegal. During that period, lawmakers did use the new principle to determine the legality of sexual relations because the country's became secular, they removed religious considerations from governance, this became a standard normal principle. So they did use this new principle, which would determine the legality of sexual relations between people. Since rape was unanimously considered unacceptable. They concluded that the principle of consent must be present for such relations to be legally acceptable.
Also, they all agreed that sexual relations between adults and children were wrong pedophilia, since children could easily be taken advantage of by adults due to their immaturity.
Consequently, they added the second principle of adulthood for sexual legal sexual relations. The phrase consenting adults, became the battle cry of the first stage of the sexual revolution. Later on in the 70s. Even homosexuals use the sexual revolutions banner of consenting adults to openly challenge the mores of society. They reminded the lawmakers that objection to homosexuality was religious based, and religion was not supposed to interfere in people's private or public lives in a secular democracy. Eventually, the legislators had to submit to the legal principle that they had themselves invented, and the rights of homosexuals became enshrined in western law.
Unfortunately, that was only the beginning.
In France, Belgium, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, the principle of consenting adults was used to decriminalize incest.
Consequently, it is legally permissible there in these countries for a man to have sexual relations with his mother, his sister, his daughter, as long as they are consenting adults, with the builder.
Islamic civilization, on the other hand, regards the laws revealed by God as absolute and unchangeable. Christianity has bowed to these changes in the law
And were in the past.
Many of these practices and,
attitudes etc. were forbidden.
Today they are accepted and promoted.
Islamic civilization, on the other hand,
regards the laws revealed by God as absolute and unchangeable. Why was defined by God as morally evil 1400 years ago, can never become morally good, because the fundamental nature of human beings and their societies as not, and will never change. Without a solid moral Foundation, human society will become corrupt and leaving it up to humans to develop that foundation is inherently flawed. A lot of states in the Quran
while our turbine harco
home, the faster that is somehow what he went out for madam fee. And if the truth were according to their desires, the heavens, the earth, and all within that would be corrupted.
So no matter what scientific evidence is brought to prove that homosexuality is genetically or biologically based, it will still be considered a crime in the Sharia, and God's law, in the same way that adultery and fornication are considered crimes, in spite of natural genetic human inclinations towards
Islam hold that the same adult human beings are still responsible for their choices. They are not robots, and capable of going beyond their program. Some scientists are currently claiming that even crimes like robbery and murder are genetically based. The question which remains is if scientists also prove that pedophilia and rape are genetically based, will Western society also decriminalize them and do away with their rational principle of consenting adults.
Islamic law does not reject the role of members of society in formulating some of its laws. However, these laws are secondary or tertiary laws and not primary laws. There is a limited role for democracy in Islamic in the Islamic principle of consultation stated in the Quran. Well, I'm rehome Shura by now there are fair should be by mutual consultation. So assura verse 38. This principle has been historically implemented in Muslim empires countries kingdoms, and states in both the past and the present. For example, people in a given community can decide by majority opinion to erect a traffic signal at a busy intersection, where a number of traffic accidents have occurred.
And lay to them you decide to remove it and make an underpass based on the same principle.
That concludes our presentation. For the first part. The second part will go on to the third pillar of lemon bottle for application of the Divine Name studies. Having hope, where there is promise
Baraka rafiqul, Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
will now shift back to our
with our students, visitors,
of our questions
is that of Ibrahim, Adam.
You said we do not use numerical values with the names of Allah and you quoted him not bass.
That is magic.
About the numbers.
The sources of the grant, please clarify. Now when I spoke about numerical values, where we say that aliff equals one
by equals two jeem equals three, thou equals four and so on, so forth.
So we have given a numerical value to each of the letters of the alphabet. And then we
calculate out the numerical value of, say, the bus mela.
And we use
the numerical value
786 as being equivalent to the Basma. So people will pay all kinds of money to get in there.
their phone numbers are the names of their houses, or the names of whatever 786. Believing that it is equal to the best mela. It's the same as the Basma saying Bismillah Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.
But it's not, it's something made up. It's fake. The numbers of the surah is something different. We just say the first surah is Al Fatiha. The second Surah is Al Baqarah. And we numbered the sores that way, those numbers have no significance,
no significance, other than order. That's the order in which the
Quran was recited to the prophet SAW Salaam by Angel Gabriel, in the final
Ramadan of his life twice, and the companions learned it and maintain that order.
Those who were the close students of the Prophet size along with regards to the
question from our Instagram students, what to do if someone's child is gay and how to handle that's
the same thing to do. If a child has other any other inclination, which is unacceptable islamicate.
We advise them, we encourage them, we put them around people who are following Islam properly. We even have them
helped by Muslims, psychologists or psychiatrists, etc.
But don't necessarily hold the modern view, that it is a way of life and shouldn't be interfered with. In fact, people should be encouraged.
We have a Quran
the people have profits a lot
for this behavior, it's there in the Bible. So it's nothing new. So we try to use the best means to help them overcome it. Knowing that anybody may have tempered tendencies to anything.
What do we do? We try to have them
in the best way possible.
How are you say? Sure, is it true that all Muslims will eventually enter Jannah even if they enter the Hellfire
Yes, it is true, that all those who are law had already decided to put in Paradise, but who will go in hell for a period of time where they will be punished for what they did.
They will be brought out and put in paradise.
But simply because a person had a Muslim name,
or who said he or she was almost but they didn't really believe and didn't really act on it.
etc, and they ended up in hell and there is no coming out.
If there Islam wasn't real, it was only superficial, cultural, etc, then there is no coming out
from Instagram, I got

is it permissible to trade forex online? And what about Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies?
There are differences among scholars on this matter, many of whom hold that it is permissible and normally in trade, in all the various forms of trade are permissible, as long as they are not specifically prohibited by the Sharia,
specifically prohibited by the Sharia. So,
until you get clear evidence of why forex or cryptocurrencies are forbidden,
from those people who claim that it is forbidden, then you may proceed
according to the majority, or many cool that it is permissible.
How are you, sir? As?
Oh, that was the same question. I should have been asked, What's the meaning of WIDA be the linguistically means innovation?
Lights, for example, in the time of the prophet SAW Selim, there were no lights,
no electric lights, that's an innovation.
planes, aeroplanes there were no airplanes. That's an innovation. These are all innovations. And they're all fine. There's no problem with that. It's the real is is the relation innovations in religion itself. And the religious practice where we make now innovations changes in the villages back.
This is where we're now entering into a Forbidden Zone, which the prophets Allah called misguidance.
Is forceful sexual intercourse between a married couple permissible in Islam? If not, what is the punishment?
Well, according to Islamic law, this is called rape in marriage. You know, according to Islamic law, it doesn't recognize rape, in marriage. Although husbands are advised, you know, to take into account the situations of their wives, etc, to not treat them in a brutal way, etc, etc. But at the same time, women are advised were advised by the prophet SAW Selim himself that if you are at the stove, cooking, etc, and your husband calls you, you should come. So they are strongly advised for that. So going into Islamic marriage is known that, you know, it is the right
of the husband to have relations with his wife. And the promise I sent him define what's the right of the man what's the right the woman, he talked about the right woman to be close to be, you know, provided with housing, etc, food and that was the right of the man. Rather The man was to have sexual relations with his wife.
That's what the process reduced it all down to just that bottom line. So this is
rape in marriage. This is something in the 90s that became
illegal, a crime beginning in the US and UK and other countries. It's spread
Still, in the majority of countries around the world, it's not a crime.
So, you know, this is this is the changes. This is the democracies, you know, up until 1990.
Up until the 1990s, it was not a crime in the USA.
So what does that mean?
The people in the 1980s
who were not charged because it was not a crime, they were all wrong and No,
this is an issue of time.
And the rules, the moral rules, changing with time, changing in places, changing in times,
no stability, you can be sure that what is considered forbidden today can be permissible tomorrow.
We spoke about insist, is is something most people's What, what, but sexual relations between a man and his wife, sorry, a man and his mother, his sister, his daughter, is permissible in countries in Europe. Yeah, modern modern countries. No way. No, go Google and find out.
Go to chef, Google, Professor Google. And he will give you all the details.
Any further questions from Instagram?
look for, to The Good Wife.
Equality quantities for the good wife already been explained by the prophet saws himself. He said women and also for men are married for
their family status,
and their piety.
Marry the pious and you will be successful.
it doesn't mean the wife has to be
pious, even if she's ugly, if you find her ugly, because of course, Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So you might find her ugly that somebody else might find a beautiful. So if in your eyes,
she's ugly, but she's biased. You have to marry her. No.
You have the right to find somebody who is pious and beautiful in your eyes. That's your right.
Similarly, the other issues of family and wealth
can be given consideration, but the primary consideration should be that of
said that women would like to hear me comparing them to stones.
Because I said
that kissing your wife doesn't mean you're worshiping
any more than kissing. The black stone on the Kaaba means that you're worshiping it.
the story can
Surrounding the stone
it was sent down to earth
Some people interpreted that to mean that it was a meteor.
Allah knows best.
when it first came into the world it was white.
And that you to the cities of the world, it turned back.
That's what he said.
fact the law knows best.
The stone is not used this, it serves a purpose. As I mentioned,
people worship while walking, because normally when we worship, we worship, standing, bowing, prostrating, sitting.
Staying in that place.
We have another form of worship, which is walking worship, called toe off,
walking around the Kaaba, around the
place of worship.
We worship while walking there, making prayers etc, wild walk. And we are supposed to circle it seven times.
If there isn't a marker to indicate where the beginning point and the ending point is, of circumambulation walking around it, then people could easily be confused. So it becomes a means of determining the beginning of the walking worship called the off and where it ends. At once you've gone around from one point from the
where the black stone is, and you come back around the other side, then that's considered as one circling. And you do that seven times
while worshiping God, not worshiping the house of worship,
not worshiping any idols. It's not a southern idol. You're worshiping God.
And kissing it is if you're able
to guess it, because the prophet may God's peace and blessings be upon him, he did so.
And as the Caliph, Omar Abdullah apob,
at the time, when he took over leadership of the Muslim world,
while making a show off, he stopped and made a statement
so that the people would reflect on what he said, to ensure that they didn't misunderstand what was involved in this walk in worship. He pointed to the stone.
And he said, aloud, so everybody could hear.
You are only a stone I know you're only a stone. You cannot do anything good for me. Nor can you harm.
And the only reason why I kiss you is because the Messenger of Allah kissed you.
So that act of kissing he was connecting it with the kissing of the Messenger of Allah. And it links the believers all the way back to the time of Prophet Abraham, who built the gap?
According to the stem belief,
create a Croatian Christian friend is asking where is the punishment in the Quran for adultery.
punishment was specified in the Sunnah of the Prophet, may God's peace and blessings be upon him and I asked him, I told him to clarify. So though you will not find a verse
punishment for adultery,
it was explained by the prophet may God's peace and blessings be upon him. And it was applied
under his supervision.
And I should mention at this time, I didn't want occasion where a woman
came to the Prophet. And
asked the prophet to purifier.
And of course, you know, it is in the Bible.
The stoning for adultery is in the Bible.
The point is that
it was known it was explained. And when she came to the profits and got peace and blessings be upon him, and asked him to purify her through applying the law of stoning to death.
The prophet may God's peace and blessings be upon him. I
because she was pregnant at the time, he told her to go,
and she can come back. When she has delivered the baby.
He gave her a chance to leave to go and not come back.
so many months later, she came back, and she had the newborn.
And she asked him to now purifier.
So he told her to go and suckle the baby.
For two years,
there was two years. It's mentioned in the ground that the preferable time for cycling is two years. So she went. Two years later, she came back with a child with some food in its mouth, showing that he was no longer or she was no longer breastfeeding.
So at that point, insistence, the province made that speech to be upon audit that she be taken tide for stoning.
people still under
While they were stoning her, some blood splattered on one of the companions of the prophets, clothing, and he cursed it is the blood of a an adulterous
prophet SAW Selim said don't curse for blood.
Because the repentance which she made
were divided up amongst the inhabitants of Medina, the city in which he was this deal the Prophet,
it would have been enough to carry them to paradise, all of them.
So the prophet SAW them, praised her out
instructed others to respect it. But she did
recognize it for what it was
a great act of faith.
So we know from his application, and there were a few other cases
which took place during his lifetime, very few.
Probably over the 1400 years.
Since the prophet may God's peace and blessings be upon him,
introduced people of Arabia to the final message of the oneness of God and worshiping God alone.
The numbers of people who were stoned to death
were x extremely small.
Because unless a person confesses
to indicate adultery
is requires four witnesses
before that law can be applied.
Now, circumstantial evidence may be used to imprison
The person for the crime, but to take their life,
it requires absolute evidence
just for your information.
Whereas, two of chapter 24 is the verse which speaks or addresses fornication between male and female that they be last 100 times.
And they further questions from our Instagram students.
My book spy on, on the one I wish to marry, before asked me her parents for marriage.
It depends on what you mean by spy.
You know, it depends on what you mean by spy.
spying in Islam, of course, is not permissible under normal circumstances,
you are permitted, to look at the person who you planned to marry without her knowing it, but the family has allowed you or whatever, then it's permissible. In fact, the Prophet Muhammad says sometimes companions did it.
And the prophet SAW Selim did encourage those who are going to get married, to see the women that they're going to marry.
And in his time, he said, because the women of Medina they have something in their eyes, you know, they had some kind of inherited
whatever, in their eyes, some of them. So he advised the components before you might see them see if this is something you can deal with? Or if you don't mind, whatever. See them.
I want to know about men hurting woman when they're having sex, basically, section
as is now class on Islamic rules of sex.
Men hurting women, deliberately, of course, it's not good.
It's forbidden in Islam to harm any anybody. Process Allah said that Muslim men Solomon, Muslim woman, I mean, listen, he already the true Muslim is one from whom other Muslims are safe from their hands. And their tongues
physically safe from their physical heart. So of course, it's not good.
you know, if it's done,
inadvertently, there is no sin involved. This was not the intention on the part of the male
then, but if the female
is quiet, she doesn't say anything about it doesn't make any complaints or whatever. And he hurts her, then he's not held accountable for it. But if she informs that it is harming her in the way or the time or the whatever, something that he can adjust, he should adjust. He shouldn't just say, Well, no, no, that's how I like it. So you need to like it like you were like, this is this is of course insane. Now we have to have consideration for our spouses. So yeah, I mean, that could be the basis for divorce. You know, she could seek divorce on the basis of that from her husband and his argument.
