This is session 44.

00:05:20--> 00:05:21

Part One

00:05:22--> 00:05:38

in which we'll be looking at two names of power, l o e, and l Mateen. The powerful invincible, names 62 and 63. In our series

00:05:39--> 00:06:01

in terms of the Quranic location, the Divine Name or ko is mentioned nine times in the choir among them, well my other Maha padri in Allah halakhah we Yun Aziz, they have not judged the law appropriately. Indeed, Allah is all powerful, and all mighty.

00:06:04--> 00:06:13

Surah Al Hajj, verse 74. The Divine Name al Mateen, on the other hand, is only mentioned once, in reference to a lot.

00:06:17--> 00:06:33

We find that in Surah dheireadh verse 58, in Lama who was poor zapple Zuko till Mati Indeed, it is a law who is the continual provider, the firm possessor of strength.

00:06:35--> 00:06:48

linguistically, the Divine Name of coffee comes from the tri literal root of Wow, yeah. And is derived from its verbal noun, or tone.

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

For

00:06:51--> 00:06:57

it has three main meanings, the first of which is to be strong,

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

to have sufficient power.

00:07:01--> 00:07:06

The second meaning is to be robust, Hardy, and sturdy.

00:07:08--> 00:07:25

And the third meaning is to prevail. This route appears 42 times in the Quran in three derived forms. The Divine Name, Al Mateen, on the other hand, comes from the trilateral route, meme,

00:07:26--> 00:07:31

noon, and its verbal noun map known

00:07:32--> 00:07:39

as four basic meanings. The first meaning is to be strong, firm and heart.

00:07:40--> 00:07:43

The second meaning is to be solid or robust.

00:07:44--> 00:07:49

The third meaning is to be steadfast, determined, unsure,

00:07:50--> 00:07:56

and the fourth meaning is to possess any quality

00:07:57--> 00:07:59

to a strong degree.

00:08:01--> 00:08:04

Alma team Mateen is the present participle

00:08:06--> 00:08:13

in common in the common file intensive form found among the various divided names many.

00:08:14--> 00:08:21

This route also appears three times in the karate in the same derived form.

00:08:23--> 00:08:43

relative to a lot of power, it means the undefeatable whose decisions no one can reject, is attribute of ultimate strength never diminishes, and is never allowed, or never followed by periods of rest.

00:08:44--> 00:08:54

Everything in the heavens in the earth must submit to the complete irresistible strength of alcovy. The snatches anything,

00:08:55--> 00:09:05

if he snatches anything it is destroyed, as he destroyed the ancient nation of samode and the city of Pompey

00:09:06--> 00:09:37

the Divine Name al Mateen. Relative to Allah means the solid and the steadfast, having the unsurpassed power and ability to do as he wishes. Alma teen is the one possessing the ultimate power and absolute firmness. This combination of complete strength and infinite firmness means that no one can stop his actions or prevent his orders from being carried out.

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

Consequently, the Divine Name alcovy describes a law's inexhaustible strength, whereas the Divine Name al Mateen refers to his supreme firmness and steadfast determination which easily overcomes everything

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

alcovy

00:10:02--> 00:10:13

is also related to some of the other Divine Names among them are Jabbar alcohol or Allah disease. And of course

00:10:14--> 00:10:15

alcovy

00:10:17--> 00:10:24

indicates divide, power, strength and dominance. As all of these

00:10:25--> 00:10:28

other names share,

00:10:29--> 00:10:37

last name and CO is most often paired with His Divine Name of miton power allies is

00:10:38--> 00:11:01

the Almighty. six of the nine times that it is mentioned, it is linked with Allah disease. For example, in Surah Hood, verse 66, in Rebecca who l karoui EULA Aziz indeed your Lord is the all powerful, the all mighty.

00:11:03--> 00:11:20

Having both power and strength is only suitable for those who are also noble and whites. Although he uses his strength, in the most honorable ways, and is perfect might is always used to set things right.

00:11:21--> 00:11:34

This combination is most often used in the context of a law strongly supporting the believers against the tyrants and unjust while using his might to severely punish them.

00:11:36--> 00:11:40

Allah refers to his plan as being Mateen

00:11:43--> 00:12:08

lol Mateen informs us that many times he lets people engaged in corruption go free for a while, as part of his wise long term plans for their reformation or their punishment. This delay should not cause people to despair and question why or ask Where is a lot

00:12:09--> 00:12:27

of loss plans are firm and unshakable as he explained himself for only lung in a KD Mateen. And I will give them time indeed, my plan is firm sort of column verse 45.

00:12:29--> 00:12:46

The extra time maybe a mercy as it gives some people an additional chance to think and decide as the events of their lives unfolds, whether to return to the truth of Islam, or to become more misguided.

00:12:47--> 00:12:51

For others, it's simply more rope to hang themselves with.

00:12:52--> 00:13:12

Though the masses might think that they're getting away with so much, actually, they are only increasing the severity of the punishment which they will receive in the end. Allah warrants those who believe that they are untouchable as follows.

00:13:15--> 00:13:28

The disbelievers should not think that my postponing their punishment is good for them. I only postponed punishment, that they may increase in cellphone in sinfulness.

00:13:30--> 00:13:35

In a minute Lila home, Leah's dadoo if MA

00:13:37--> 00:13:40

in the case of the first group, who

00:13:41--> 00:14:01

being given time allows them to come to their senses and take the right path. There are many examples. Among them, I some people who vehemently oppose this lab for a number of years, and then eventually found guidance.

00:14:03--> 00:14:13

For example, in our current times made this exists in the past as well as in the present in the past, we had

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

I will soufiane was an enemy until the conquest of Mecca.

00:14:21--> 00:14:26

And at the same time we had Abu lahab was an enemy till he died.

00:14:30--> 00:14:35

But in current times, for example, joram van clavering

00:14:37--> 00:14:54

was a member of parliament for Gert wielders far right Dutch Freedom Party known as the PVV. From 2010 to 2014. He announced in 2019, his conversion to Islam

00:14:56--> 00:15:00

previously, as a PVV politician, he

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

He was a harsh critic of Islam, publicly claiming that Islam is a lie. And the Quran is poison.

00:15:09--> 00:15:31

geared to elders. On the other hand, the 49 year old politician had gained notoriety in Europe and beyond, in recent years for a strident criticism of Islam, arguing that moderate Islam does not exist, and that Muhammad if he were alive today would be hunted down as a terrorist.

00:15:32--> 00:15:41

He also campaigned against the Islamification of Europe and call for a ban on the Quran, which he compared to Hitler's mind camp.

00:15:42--> 00:16:27

However, wielders ardent supporter, Vlad Van clavering made the switch from critic to convert in the midst of writing a book against this slab. He said, during my research, I came across more and more things which made my negative views on Islam falter. Following Van clarance announcement arnoud Van Dorn, another former PVV official, who was an earlier convert to Islam congratulated van clever on his decision via Twitter, writing, I never thought that the PVV would become a breeding ground for converts.

00:16:28--> 00:16:44

In December 2011, the PVV broke ties with Van Doren who had decided to become a Muslim. And a few months later, on April 2012, he publicly announced his conversion to Islam.

00:16:46--> 00:16:53

Soon after that he performed Hajj to Mecca, and in Saudi Arabia and visited the Prophet's mosque in Medina.

00:16:55--> 00:17:13

He said that the overwhelming global reaction of Muslims around the world against the highly controversial film fitna, which Gert wielders had made, he vandoren helped distribute,

00:17:14--> 00:17:22

made him curious to learn more about Islam, and eventually led to his decision to convert to Islam.

00:17:23--> 00:17:44

He stated right now I'm still feeling regret for having distributed that film. I have a responsibility to correct the mistakes that I've done in the past. Two years later, in 2014, his eldest son is skander. I mean, the phrase also followed him in converting to Islam.

00:17:45--> 00:18:03

Another example can be seen in my own family. Though my parents Welcome my conversion to Islam from communism back in 1972. It took them 21 years to finally convert to Islam in 1993.

00:18:04--> 00:18:10

It was only after living and teaching in Sabah, East Malaysia,

00:18:12--> 00:18:15

where they adopted an Indonesian Muslim son.

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

So I had an adopted brother

00:18:20--> 00:18:25

was of Indonesian origin was Muslim, living with us in the family.

00:18:27--> 00:18:49

them living in Gumby, Nigeria, where they taught and trained Muslim teachers living in and teaching in the teaching Muslims in Yemen, living in Riyadh and Jeddah Saudi Arabia for 12 years, where they set up and run the English section of minority Riyadh International Islamic schools

00:18:50--> 00:19:11

and editing some of my books, my Islamic books, most notably the true religion of God, and the evolution of fit that they finally made the decision to convert after returning to Canada, Allahu Akbar, may Allah bless their souls and grant them gardens in paradise.

00:19:13--> 00:19:45

A few years back in 2010, when I made Hajj and went to Medina, after the Hajj, I met an Indian Muslim brother, who informed me that he was the one in the newspapers, in the newspapers, in the pictures in the newspapers in India, and around that spread all around the world, who climbed on top of the Babri mosques dome, and struck the first blow with a sledgehammer on December 6 1992.

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

Following the complete destruction of the mosque, for which all 32 accused were recently acquitted in 2020, and more than 2000 people lost their lives during riots.

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

all over India, following the mosques demolition,

00:20:04--> 00:20:31

the brother Muslim brother who was at that time a rabid Hindu. In the car Ceefax BJP volunteers at the time, he said that he couldn't sleep at night for weeks after the destruction, the ringing sound which the dog made when he first struck, it, kept echoing and reverberating in his mind, and it wouldn't go away.

00:20:32--> 00:21:11

This continued until the thoughts suddenly came to him, that maybe he should read something about Islam as he hated it so much, without even knowing what its beliefs were. When he finally got a hold of a booklet on Islam and read it, he immediately accepted Islam, left his Hindu community and dedicated himself to gathering donations and building mosques across India until he dies. By the time I met him in Medina, he had already built 23 mosques in different locations around India. So behind Allah.

00:21:13--> 00:21:29

times when my team gives the disbelievers a longer time to live, they simply carry on doing more and more evil until they die as criminals and are thereby punished even more severely in the grave and beyond.

00:21:30--> 00:22:02

The extension is given by Ella Mateen to enemies of Islam in our time, like Trump's Muslim ban, the Zionists imprisonment and torture of Palestinians. Myanmar military leaders slaughter of the rohingyas and mainland China's brainwashing of the wiggers also means that the believers will have a greater chance to get more rewards and earn higher rights in paradise through their struggles against oppression.

00:22:04--> 00:22:14

Thus the plan of Allah is solid, from whichever angle it is viewed. For the believers, it is always a win win situation.

00:22:15--> 00:22:16

As

00:22:17--> 00:22:32

whenever good comes they are grateful to Allah and Allah rewards them for it. And if evil befalls them, they are patient with it, and Allah rewards them for their patients.

00:22:34--> 00:22:41

Moving on now to the application of these Divine Names, according to Indian babbles four principles.

00:22:42--> 00:22:46

Principle number one is to adopt where applicable.

00:22:48--> 00:23:09

These Divine Names or coway and Mateen may be applied on a human level by simply being strong and firm believers who stand up for Islam and its teachings the righteousness and justice. So being a strong and firm believer is a direct application of these

00:23:10--> 00:23:51

findings alcovy and Almaty. This kind of strength and firmness does not require blind fanatical reactions in defense of Islamic symbols. Instead, it requires a firm stance, both in defense and promotion of Islamic teachings and ideals. Based on the proper knowledge of Islam, Abu huraira quoted the prophets on Solomon saying, I live in ocoee Hi, Ron, what a humble ilahi minute minute bife Wolfie coolin hire. The strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer.

00:23:52--> 00:23:54

Though there is good in both.

00:23:57--> 00:24:18

There are many cultural Muslims around the world who may drink alcohol, fornicate, steal and lie. But if anyone says anything bad about Islam, they are ready to kill them or die trying. This is not real Islamic strength. It is blind cultural nationalism.

00:24:19--> 00:24:40

This is not the strength about which the prophet SAW silent spoke. That strength is fundamentally inner spiritual and emotional strength. It is the strength of faith, for which sumaiya and Yasser became the first martyrs. Among the followers of the prophets, a lot of us.

00:24:41--> 00:24:56

They were among the early converts to Islam and Makkah, who resisted the extreme torture of their meccan slave masters until they eventually succumb to it and died without renouncing their faith.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

Whenever the prophet SAW Selim helplessly

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

by them during their period of torture, he gently and lovingly promised both of them paradise saying Subhan Allah is here for Inamori, Docomo Jana, be patient family are we here? Indeed your appointment is in paradise.

00:25:21--> 00:25:43

It is also the strength of the greatest martyr ever. According to the prophet SAW the sun and the time to come, a young believer will publicly confront Alma See, had the job, the Antichrist and openly accused him of false when he claims to the world that he is God.

00:25:44--> 00:25:51

And I must say that the job will be the greatest trial that humankind will face ever.

00:25:53--> 00:26:10

This will take place. While the job is commanding the skies to rain during the global drought, as he won't appear until rain stops falling all over the earth for one year.

00:26:12--> 00:27:05

The jaw will react immediately by viciously slicing his body into two halves in front of everyone from the middle of his head to his crotch. When the two halves fall to the ground, the Antichrist will proudly walk between them, command them to rejoin and he will call the young man back to life, to the amazement of everyone. However, when he instructs the resurrected youth to declare his belief in the job that he is God, the youth will reply, I've only become more certain that you are false. Then the young man will turn and publicly announced to everyone or people, he won't be able to do this to anyone after me. The job will then angrily grab him by his neck and attempt to hack off his

00:27:05--> 00:27:11

head. But a copper band around the use neck would prevent him from doing so.

00:27:12--> 00:27:29

Farley frustrated that Zhao will then grab the young man's hands and feet and toss him into his river of fire that follows him wherever he goes. He will appear to the masses to have been consumed by the fire.

00:27:31--> 00:27:39

The Bold young man. However, according to Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah actually fell directly into paradise.

00:27:40--> 00:27:43

Following the explanation, the prophet SAW Selim noted

00:27:45--> 00:28:11

how the other manasi Shahada and Rob Bilal me, this young man is the greatest martyr in the sight of the Lord of all the worlds. This is the type of strength which wants from that. Allah wants from us spiritual and emotional, emotional strength, which is over and above the physical strength.

00:28:15--> 00:28:45

In a machete do lady Iam liko nafsa? Who Ender levada indeed the truly strong one is the one who controls himself in times of anger. This is also why the prophet SAW Selim informed us that the spiritual jihad is greater than the physical Jihad I will never go to the province Isola saying of London jihadi and you jaha Roger Lu nafsa. Well, how are

00:28:46--> 00:28:55

the best form of jihad is for a man to strive against the evil temptations of his soul and his desires.

00:28:56--> 00:29:41

Therefore, it is possible for us to apply these two Divine Names or co E and l baatein. By being firm believers and strong Muslims in all the most important aspects of strength and firmness, whether physical, mental, emotional, moral, psychological, and most importantly, spiritual. For example, on the physical level, we should be healthy and physically strong, strong enough to be able to defend ourselves, our families and our communities and to perform the various acts of physical worship like daily prayers, fast pilgrimages, etc.

00:29:42--> 00:30:00

The problem is on Sunday I'm used to horse race and camel race with his companions and foot race with his wives. He also even wrestled with his contemporaries. A well known example is that of Roe Khanna who was a very wealthy strong

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

an undefeated record wrestler of Van Ohashi

00:30:06--> 00:30:10

gays, oh grazed goats in the valley of

00:30:13--> 00:30:18

he won saw the private side son I'm walking by and approached him saying Muhammad,

00:30:19--> 00:30:24

you are the one who has been insulting our gods a lot and alasa

00:30:25--> 00:30:28

and has been proclaiming the greatness of Allah alone.

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

If it wasn't,

00:30:31--> 00:31:26

if I wasn't family to you, I would have killed you. But instead I will challenge you to a wrestling match. You call out to Allah. And I'll call on my gods, and we'll see which one of them is most powerful. The prophet SAW Selim replied, If we have to wrestle, then so be it. I'm ready. This answer surprised you cannot. Nevertheless, he stood up in pride to face the messenger and was swiftly brought down to the ground by him in just one move. And the prophets Arsalan sat on his chest. This was the first time anyone had ever defeated him. ashamed. rukon exclaimed, get off my chest and give me one more chance maybe a lot and alosa weren't paying attention to me. The

00:31:26--> 00:32:06

Messenger of Allah agreed salatu salam, and after standing up and facing regarding a second time, he again effortlessly brought the rest of them to the ground, prompting ricotta to say maybe a lot and others are angry with me today. While your Lord assists you give me one more chance. This time I'll short I'm sure they will assist me. Promise Arsalan again agreed and on the third occasion after Ricardo was brought down by him again ruana for Sook, the challenge in humiliation and said Mohammed, take as many of my goats as you wish.

00:32:08--> 00:32:16

The prophet SAW Selim replied, I'm not in need of your wealth. You should become a Muslim instead, and be saved for prom Johanna.

00:32:19--> 00:32:28

Rihanna replied, I don't mind becoming a Muslim. But what would the women and the children say after seeing such a strong wrestler defeated and turning to Islam?

00:32:30--> 00:32:39

Before turning around to leave the Messenger of Allah answered, then congratulations to you for all the wealth you have acquired.

00:32:42--> 00:32:46

That was to make him think, at this time, abubaker

00:32:47--> 00:32:50

and Omar who are looking for the prophets as

00:32:51--> 00:33:39

they saw him, approaching them from the Valley of Adam, hoping he was not troubled by anyone, they quickly ran to him and said, O Messenger of Allah, why did you go there alone? There is a strong, very strong man and a great enemy of Islam who lives in that area. The messenger a lot, smiled and said to him, said to them, why should I worry about Rachana when Allah is constantly with me, he then related to them all that happened, after which the two companions expressed their happiness. And one of them said mukana was such a powerful wrestler, that no one had ever dropped him before. This was something only the Messenger of Allah could have accomplished.

00:33:41--> 00:33:45

On a mental level, we should be securely

00:33:46--> 00:34:17

and religiously educated sufficiently enough to become productive members of society. We need to gain sufficient knowledge and training in order to fulfill our religious and secular obligations. It means for example, that we need to acquire religious knowledge of when's the guy's obligatory honors, as well as the mathematical abilities necessary to calculate how much zeca we need to pay.

00:34:18--> 00:34:34

Consequently, the promises Allah made the quest for knowledge compulsory on every Muslim, male and female saying tolerable enemy for ADA, Allah, Allah Muslim, seeking knowledge is a compulsory is compulsory for every Muslim.

00:34:35--> 00:34:59

However, knowledge has many branches and numerous levels. Consequently, it is necessary to prioritize the various branches in order to acquire the most important areas of knowledge before the less important areas. In fact, there are even areas of knowledge which Muslims are advised to avoid, as the slogan seeking knowledge for the sake of knowledge.

00:35:00--> 00:35:21

is not liked in Islam. Instead, gaining knowledge for its benefit is more appropriate from the Islamic perspective. Thus the progress as salam was reported by jabber to have said hi to Nancy and for our own business, the best of people are those most beneficial to other people.

00:35:23--> 00:35:31

And he taught his followers to seek refuge in Allah from useless knowledge, saying Allahumma INEOS will become an elven lion,

00:35:32--> 00:35:37

or ally seek refuge in You from knowledge, which is of no benefit.

00:35:38--> 00:35:45

The strong Muslim mentally is the one with sufficient knowledge to teach what they know to others.

00:35:46--> 00:36:00

on an emotional level, we should be psychologically well equipped to handle or control our myriad of emotions love, hate, worry, disappointment, happiness, sadness, etc.

00:36:01--> 00:36:10

And to display the best moral characteristics in all of our various interactions with the laws creatures.

00:36:11--> 00:37:08

To clarify this point, I will moraira quoted the prophet SAW Solomon saying, later, Shadi do Bishara the surah in the machete, do lady Iam lippo nafsa, who end the levada the truly strong man isn't the winning wrestler. But he is the one who controls himself when he gets angry, this is true emotional strength. In the past, Western medicine suggested that it was better to shout and scream, and let your frustrations out. People even made rooms that you could go and break things and bang and kick and scream until when you leave you feel exhausted, it's all gone. They said this is better to do this than to bottle up frustrations within ourselves. However, more recently, it has been shown that

00:37:08--> 00:38:06

in times of extreme anger, very small blood vessels known as capillaries burst in our brains. So it is in fact harmful to explode emotionally. true strength lies in acquiring the various emotional tools necessary to control all forms of bad characteristics, bad manners and bad behavior. The foundation of it all is patience, which is accessible to every human being, regardless of how they were born or raised. Some people say I was born impatient. My parents told me that thumbs up was I was raised impatient. My parents raised me that way. The prophet SAW Selim advise that it's a quick acquisition by practicing make making it perfect was for everyone. Well, my sub bar is submittable

00:38:06--> 00:38:28

law. Well, my our PA, oh my aura Tia I had, I thought and hiren wowza Minister, Uber, whoever pretends to be patient, Allah will grant him or her patients, and no one has been given a gift better and more comprehensive than patients.

00:38:30--> 00:38:50

were all able to pretend to be patient while inwardly exploding and impatience. By regular efforts, this mighty and powerful emotion. This mighty and powerful emotional level of intelligence can be acquired by everyone and anyone.

00:38:51--> 00:39:18

On a spiritual level, we should clearly and deeply understand and implement the faith based religious teachings, prayers, fastings, a guide cetera, we should understand them properly and consistently, in order for them to have a strong and beneficial impact on our hearts and souls. The internalization of our understanding, our spiritual understanding becomes the driving factor

00:39:20--> 00:39:28

for strong faith based fundamentally on the mindfulness of that

00:39:29--> 00:39:35

true strength of faith is a product of true strength of our God consciousness taqwa

00:39:36--> 00:39:38

and it begins with Salah.

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

If we're not doing as the prophet SAW, Selim instructed us, we remain lacking and weak spiritually. It is the special prayer about which the province

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

gave a very simple instruction, which sums up succinctly how that prayer and proper prayer

00:40:00--> 00:40:15

There needs to be made. I will I you relate to that a man came to the prophet SAW Selim and asked Oh messenger of Allah. Teach me Islam, but be brief. The prophet SAW Selim responded saying is our

00:40:16--> 00:40:25

face a logic for suddenly salata more daring. If you get up to pray, pray a farewell prayer.

00:40:26--> 00:40:58

Meaning that when you perform your prayer, you should feel as if it's the last prayer you will ever make before leaving this world. If one feels that way, it will cause them to act in the best way possible. With full humility, sincerity and calmness. It is the taco prayer. The prayer infused with taqwa and every aspect, the prayer in which one remains conscious of Allah from the beginning takbeer

00:40:59--> 00:41:00

saying Allahu Akbar,

00:41:01--> 00:41:06

to the ending, tasleem saying Salaam Alaikum.

00:41:09--> 00:41:31

This is the prayer in which every word uttered, an every verse recited is done with utmost care and the deepest reflection, one blessed to achieve such a prayer, even one time will never rest until he or she repeats that experience, time and time again.

00:41:32--> 00:41:37

May Allah bless us to experience this prayer of enlightenment

00:41:40--> 00:41:42

at least once in our lifetime.

00:41:44--> 00:41:46

We should strive for justice,

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

a lot of copy the strongest, detests strength based on tyranny and injustice. The province of Sallam said no nation is blessed, unless its weakest members can demand their rights without hesitation

00:42:07--> 00:42:22

regarding himself Alas, stresses throughout the crime, that he does not and will not oppress anyone. Well, I have limo Rob Booker Shahada, and your Lord does not oppress anyone through our comforts for the day.

00:42:23--> 00:43:09

We should strive to be people who find it important to be fair, even in the smallest of matters, and to inspire others to be just and to stand up for the rights of the week. Allah describes the Muslim nation as what following the middle path or the golden mean, and warned against excess and extremism. workaholic jalna Come on Matan was at all with a cool new Shahada, Allah nasty way akuna rasuluh la come shader. Thus I have made you adjust balanced nation to be witnesses for the nations and the messenger a witness for you. So

00:43:10--> 00:43:24

verse 143, this divinely ordained balance can only be maintained through proper knowledge of the religion, for ignorance always provides fertile grounds for deviation and extremism.

00:43:27--> 00:44:17

We should be firm and strong and following the right path, the Divine Name al Mateen. The firm should also inspire us to hold on firmly to the religion at all times, and to be determined to follow the straight path with the correct understanding of Islam. for staying firmly on the straight path of Islam requires us to hold on firmly to the Quran and the Sunnah, as stated by the prophet SAW Sunda direct to ficam ambrane lentil Lu ma Temasek to be Hema Kitab Allah also nada nabee I've left with you two things. If you hold on firmly to them, you will never go astray The Book of Allah and the Sunnah of his prophet.

00:44:19--> 00:44:34

Holding on firmly to them means to hold on tightly to the Quran by striving to understand whatever we read in in it in order to apply the orders and prohibitions and follow the guidance in our daily lives.

00:44:36--> 00:44:51

Secondly, holding on firmly to the Sunnah of the prophet SAW seldom as understood and conveyed by his followers and the two generations following them. And those who tried to follow them.

00:44:53--> 00:44:57

As they promised us ultimate said, head on NASA Academy

00:44:58--> 00:45:00

the people of my general

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

are the best. So melody Nyah Luna and those who follow them from Mullah Dena Luna and those those then those who follow them.

00:45:14--> 00:45:31

We should also call on Alma teen in our prayers. Another means by which we can become firm and strong, after having held on firmly to the Quran and Sunnah is to carry the message of guidance to others.

00:45:34--> 00:45:49

The prophet SAW Selim explained that the best Muslim is the one who not only learns the Quran, but he also teaches it to others. How to command animal Khurana who Allah the best of you are those who learn the Quran and teaches it to others.

00:45:51--> 00:45:57

That is in keeping with Allah and His messengers instructions to invite the whole world to Islam,

00:45:58--> 00:46:11

calling everyone to Mateen for their realizability Rob Baker bill Hekmati. Well now either Tim has a call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good preaching.

00:46:13--> 00:46:24

So our numbers 125 and the promises, himself said, well, day one he will convey from me, even if it only is a single verse.

00:46:25--> 00:47:00

being busy with good deeds helps us to deflect Satan's constant attempts to sabotage our and lead us astray. Furthermore, being challenged by obstacles, and stubborn people in our efforts to invite others to Allah will make us stronger in faith. Finally, Dallek a father who was stuck in, come out, omit, for that reason, call them to the faith, and stand steadfast as you were commanded. So I assure our verse 15

00:47:02--> 00:47:45

we should also keep close to firm people. In order to be firm and strong as the two names require for their applications by humans. We should surround ourselves with people who are themselves firm in their Islam. Their firmness and strength will rub off on us, as the promises sell them explained in its parable about the perfume merchants and the blacksmith relative to good friends and bad friends. Furthermore, the promises further warned us about the importance of choosing our friends carefully saying, choose your friends Well, for you will be raised on the Day of Judgment with your friends.

00:47:48--> 00:48:10

We should ask our machine for steadfastness, calling on Allah to make us firm and steadfast in good and bad times should be in our daily prayers. The human heart changes rapidly and continuously. I suppose as Alan said, the heart changes more often than a pot of rapidly boiling water.

00:48:11--> 00:48:16

So let us memorize this popular prophetic supplication

00:48:17--> 00:48:30

if we haven't already done so, and implore all my team regularly for spiritual firmness, from the bottoms of our hearts yamaka level polu sabots calbee Allah did

00:48:32--> 00:48:37

yeah mukaan level kulu sambit calbee Allah did

00:48:38--> 00:48:49

yeah, mocha level kulu Tabitha Barbie, Aladdin, Nick. Oh Turner of hearts. Make my heart firm upon your religion.

00:48:50--> 00:48:53

Furthermore, let us really

00:48:55--> 00:49:02

be determined to get into paradise by reminding ourselves regularly, that this world is only temporary.

00:49:04--> 00:49:27

We should also ask them totally for power. by ourselves, we have no power to obey our law except by laws power, and a law granting us success. Likewise, by ourselves, we have no ability to lead since and to repel the stalls evils except by a law granting us permission and means the province has

00:49:28--> 00:49:42

brought this to the attention of the oma in a statement to Abdullah even place or Abdullah in the case. China teach you a word which is among the treasures of paradise.

00:49:44--> 00:49:59

La hawla wala quwata illa Billah there is no means no, I might accept byelaw a mama No. He suggested that the reason for the short phrase being given the status of a treasure from Paradise

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

Because it is a statement of complete submission and turning over a one's affairs to Allah, admission of one surrender to Him, recognition that there is no creator besides Him. acceptance that no one can refuse this command and his creatures own nothing in their affairs.

00:50:26--> 00:50:28

The live in Massoud

00:50:29--> 00:50:44

said it meant that there is no means to escape disobedience of a law except by his allowance and no power to obey him except by his help

00:50:46--> 00:50:47

barakallahu li

00:50:48--> 00:51:01

will close our session today which is part one and our do our using a wi n Alma team will be said

00:51:02--> 00:51:04

at the end of Part Two

00:51:05--> 00:51:16

biological salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. And we will now transition to the next

00:51:17--> 00:51:27

section of our session, the last section, which is none other than the Q and A

00:51:28--> 00:51:29

Baraka law.

00:51:46--> 00:51:47

First question

00:51:49--> 00:51:53

is from BB. Salma smile.

00:51:54--> 00:51:55

What does it mean?

00:51:58--> 00:52:05

I guess when it is said that the lie sufficient? Does this mean that the lie is sufficient to protect me from harm?

00:52:07--> 00:52:09

And to give me good, yes,

00:52:10--> 00:52:11

it means both.

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

We don't

00:52:15--> 00:52:19

need technically, to seek help from anyone.

00:52:21--> 00:52:21

And

00:52:23--> 00:52:26

rappelling arm, or in gaining good

00:52:28--> 00:52:36

although as human beings, it is natural for us to get help or to seek help from those around us.

00:52:38--> 00:52:39

That's not forbidden.

00:52:41--> 00:52:47

But we say a lie is sufficient for us. As a DA

00:52:49--> 00:52:56

praying that Allah will be sufficient or asking Allah to suffice us.

00:53:01--> 00:53:03

Second from acidic.

00:53:07--> 00:53:14

Why did Prophet Muhammad SAW us I did not allow Ali to take a second wife.

00:53:16--> 00:53:19

Zack Allah Hara Well,

00:53:21--> 00:53:24

the prophet SAW solemn requested,

00:53:25--> 00:53:26

he did not forbid

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

he requested Ali, not to take a second wife, because

00:53:34--> 00:53:35

he

00:53:36--> 00:53:37

got from

00:53:38--> 00:53:41

his daughter Fatima that

00:53:42--> 00:53:43

it would hurt him.

00:53:47--> 00:54:00

Also, there are narrations which indicate that the person that he wanted to marry was the daughter of one of the biggest enemies of Islam.

00:54:02--> 00:54:07

And he himself didn't feel good with bringing

00:54:09--> 00:54:11

the daughter of the Prophet. So as

00:54:13--> 00:54:17

with the daughter of one of the biggest enemies of Islam.

00:54:20--> 00:54:27

And that's just the wish of a father. This was not legislative, this was not legislation.

00:54:28--> 00:54:29

If Ali

00:54:30--> 00:54:33

chose to

00:54:34--> 00:54:42

go ahead, that was his right and in fact, once the prophet SAW Selim died, he married 234 done.

00:54:43--> 00:54:56

So while the prophet SAW Selim was alive, in difference to the prophet SAW Salem, you know, because as I said, and said what hurts Fatima? My daughter Fatima hurts me.

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

You know, so

00:55:00--> 00:55:05

In, in order to avoid hurting the prophet SAW Allah

00:55:06--> 00:55:07

Ali

00:55:08--> 00:55:12

delayed and refrained until after he died.

00:55:21--> 00:55:24

Omar is asking Can you tell what a man is?

00:55:26--> 00:55:26

Ah,

00:55:27--> 00:55:36

we have the hadith of Angel Gabriel, in which he asked the prophet SAW Salah, what is the man and the rocks? I'll send them

00:55:38--> 00:55:40

answered that it was

00:55:41--> 00:55:45

six pillars. belief in Allah.

00:55:46--> 00:55:50

Belief in the angels belief in the books

00:55:51--> 00:55:56

believe in the other of Allah, the good and it's evil.

00:55:59--> 00:56:03

So, this was already explained and established

00:56:05--> 00:56:11

1400 years ago, is not something to philosophize about.

00:56:13--> 00:56:15

It is what it is.

00:56:20--> 00:56:21

bream me

00:56:22--> 00:56:23

or army.

00:56:25--> 00:56:33

If one has a business and buys a franchise that sells haraam products, will the money

00:56:34--> 00:56:36

he makes be haraam

00:56:39--> 00:56:50

if one of the business and buys a franchise that sells around products, if he buys a franchise that sells around products, he should stop

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

the sale of haram products. That's what is expected.

00:56:57--> 00:56:59

Maybe initially due to

00:57:01--> 00:57:06

you know, contractual issues, you can't do it immediately. So what he does is that

00:57:07--> 00:57:19

the haraam products are, you know, their profits from them is say 10% or 15%, or whatever percent of the

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

profits that you get gets that amount he gets rid of. He doesn't take it and put it with the rest of his money. How does he get rid of it? He gets rid of it by

00:57:33--> 00:57:37

using it to buy toilet paper for the mask.

00:57:38--> 00:57:40

Or shoes

00:57:42--> 00:57:48

that I use to go to the bathroom in the mosques or whatever. Something which is not off.

00:57:49--> 00:57:53

You could say it's lonely. It's up the lonely things.

00:57:59--> 00:58:09

person number five by Mr. Saleem, kindly guide how we can make our homes peaceful and tolerant for all members, especially boys and husband.

00:58:10--> 00:58:13

Sister, that's a series of lectures.

00:58:14--> 00:58:15

There's no

00:58:17--> 00:58:23

one word answer, or one sentence answer for that it's massive.

00:58:24--> 00:58:24

But

00:58:25--> 00:58:27

we can just say that

00:58:28--> 00:58:30

by following the way of the profits

00:58:33--> 00:58:36

in all aspects of home life,

00:58:41--> 00:58:42

we can achieve

00:58:43--> 00:58:45

a peaceful Oh.

00:58:46--> 00:58:50

But it doesn't mean that it will be peaceful 24 seven

00:58:52--> 00:59:02

because, you know i shugar upset. One of the other wives sent food knocked over the food, spilled it

00:59:04--> 00:59:07

that was disturbing the peace of the household.

00:59:08--> 00:59:25

And this was the wife of the Prophet sallahu Salah mother of the believers. So what does that tell us? That peace will come at times and there will be war at other times.

00:59:27--> 00:59:31

So we have to be prepared to handle both

00:59:32--> 00:59:40

occasions we pray to Allah to make the times of peace much greater than the times of war

00:59:50--> 00:59:52

Rasul Allah Asad asks

01:00:05--> 01:00:06

This is extremely long.

01:00:09--> 01:00:10

This question

01:00:11--> 01:00:16

we can summarize an answer for you in the next session inshallah.

01:00:17--> 01:00:31

How our essay? Is there a dua that is recited? That is similar to the DA, that is said right before we end the prayer after the Shah hood?

01:00:39--> 01:00:46

Well, you know, there's so many laws, I'm not certain which one you're referring to.

01:00:47--> 01:00:50

But any of those laws, which I said,

01:00:53--> 01:00:57

even then our prayers, we can say outside of our prayers.

01:00:58--> 01:01:02

superpacs thinking of a lot

01:01:03--> 01:01:17

is in a great manner and is understood. But how does the servant expect from Allah Indra? Shouldn't we just hope, while one is weak?

01:01:18--> 01:01:19

to do anything?

01:01:24--> 01:01:32

question which is a bit confused, I'm not really certain of what is being said here.

01:01:36--> 01:01:53

But we know that the prophets of Solomon said, Are their own law and to move on a bit about calling the law being certain that your prayers will be answered. So we should call with that kind of certainty. In sha Allah

01:01:56--> 01:01:58

was ml Ahmed?

01:02:01--> 01:02:06

I know we must separate insha Allah into three words.

01:02:08--> 01:02:10

Does that also apply when writing in English?

01:02:13--> 01:02:16

Oh, what do you mean? It has to be separated into three words.

01:02:18--> 01:02:19

We're saying sha Allah,

01:02:20--> 01:02:21

that's

01:02:23--> 01:02:29

joined together. That's okay. Insha Allah, but the point is that it has to be

01:02:30--> 01:02:31

complete.

01:02:34--> 01:02:40

We must complete the pronunciation of in. So we don't say Sharla Sharla.

01:02:41--> 01:02:44

Okay. And again, Sha

01:02:46--> 01:02:55

should also be complete. Not so it shouldn't be Angela, Sha, Sha. But it should be in sha Allah

01:03:04--> 01:03:06

in terms of writing in English

01:03:08--> 01:03:11

no big deal because it's only an approximation

01:03:15--> 01:03:23

zohore Basha What is the meaning of desire bought? A bottle is not bottle Martin.

01:03:24--> 01:03:32

inshallah we will deal with that, when we get to the names of via an L. Barton.

01:03:36--> 01:03:38

And I'll one and then

01:03:42--> 01:03:43

we'll

01:03:44--> 01:03:48

deal with that, in that session. They are coming.

01:03:57--> 01:04:08

Question if I rinse my nose, while making will do sometimes my nose bleeds and gets damaged.

01:04:09--> 01:04:19

That's why I stopped rinsing my nose while doing will do accept also, because I have to. Is this a problem?

01:04:21--> 01:04:21

Well,

01:04:22--> 01:04:50

you know, it depends on what you mean by rinsing your notes. You know, I mean, if you put water in your nose, and you suck it all the way back into your nose and then coming out the blood, then you don't have to take it in so deep. You know, it's just like the people say also when you're making wudu in while fasting that you don't take it as deeply as you take it when you're not fasting.

01:04:52--> 01:04:59

So, you know, just putting some water in your nose slightly is sufficient. It doesn't have to go all the way up into the back of your nose.

01:05:00--> 01:05:03

So it could cause bleeding.

01:05:07--> 01:05:18

How does one cure a blackened heart? Is it with Vicar? Quran asking forgiveness, of course, remembering Allah,

01:05:19--> 01:05:22

reading Quran asking forgiveness

01:05:24--> 01:05:35

from Allah as well as asking forgiveness from people who we have heard harmed by there have done so directly or behind their backs or whatever.

01:05:36--> 01:05:37

You know,

01:05:38--> 01:05:43

we cure the block in the heart by stopping evil deeds.

01:05:44--> 01:06:02

Because every evil deed that we do a black spot comes on the heart, the more we do, the more it is black. And so by cutting down on our evil deeds, we remove the darkness from our heart

01:06:05--> 01:06:08

from Instagram students is masturbation around

01:06:12--> 01:06:13

the

01:06:14--> 01:06:16

position of some scholars is that it is

01:06:17--> 01:06:21

while other scholars hold that it isn't.

01:06:22--> 01:06:24

And the prophets Allah said that

01:06:26--> 01:06:29

the halaal is clear and the Haram is clear.

01:06:30--> 01:06:37

And as such, whenever we pronounce something as being haraam,

01:06:38--> 01:06:41

we should have clear evidence

01:06:42--> 01:06:53

not necessarily evidence which is used, you know, by analogy, etc. Because deduction by analogy can go in more than one direction.

01:06:55--> 01:07:22

So it's better to have clear evidence. So as far as I understand there isn't that clear evidence for it being out of where the process said it is harder? Or if you do it you're going to hell you know or it's it's attached with some form of destruction or whatever I

01:07:23--> 01:07:32

mean, this is how do we know when something's hot? When either the browser Salam or Allah subhanaw taala

01:07:33--> 01:07:36

themselves say this is haram

01:07:38--> 01:07:40

or if they say

01:07:42--> 01:07:45

it is cursed or they say

01:07:46--> 01:07:48

it is inhale

01:07:49--> 01:07:54

in the fire you know, these terminologies which indicate

01:07:55--> 01:07:57

major punishment or major sin.

01:07:59--> 01:08:02

This is how we know that things are hard on

01:08:03--> 01:08:09

those things, which I disliked maybe implied

01:08:11--> 01:08:14

not clear statements,

01:08:15--> 01:08:16

you know,

01:08:17--> 01:08:23

those expressions of dislike or word usage

01:08:25--> 01:08:31

stops short of saying punishment and how fire etc etc.

01:08:42--> 01:08:44

Somebody who calls himself knuckles

01:08:46--> 01:08:53

or herself is asking and tashahhud Why do people say I you hanabi

01:08:57--> 01:08:58

and the shock

01:08:59--> 01:09:02

Well, not everybody says it

01:09:03--> 01:09:04

ah

01:09:09--> 01:09:11

oh Muhammad, are you having a baby

01:09:15--> 01:09:21

Some people also recite a Salam ala Nabi

01:09:25--> 01:09:38

as opposed to salam alayka au and maybe as salam ala Nabi, so the Sahaba did that. Also, after the prophet SAW Selim died,

01:09:41--> 01:09:48

did the prophet SAW them say Tisha hood, and Salah Ah, Allah knows best.

01:09:49--> 01:09:51

Allah knows best

01:10:04--> 01:10:09

reign army again, can you cut ties with family members?

01:10:12--> 01:10:14

If they do things against this law?

01:10:18--> 01:10:22

Well, I would not say cut ties with them, it depends on how bad it is.

01:10:25--> 01:10:26

So

01:10:29--> 01:10:38

virtually everybody does something against Islam. So we're going to use that as the basis for cutting ties and will none of us will have any ties at all.

01:10:39--> 01:10:46

So it needs to be something very major. Otherwise, we just advise them

01:10:47--> 01:10:51

you know, if they are a bad influence on our children, etc.

01:10:52--> 01:10:54

We stay away from them,

01:10:55--> 01:10:58

but still greet them on ease. And

01:10:59--> 01:11:01

if we see them, we greet them.

01:11:03--> 01:11:15

And you visit them accordingly to keep your family protected. And maybe you alone go to visit them because you can handle it, etc.

01:11:23--> 01:11:35

Question from how he say, is it enough to memorize the names of Allah, but not the meanings are is both required. Both are required.

01:11:37--> 01:11:37

And

01:11:38--> 01:11:49

it's not enough to just know the meanings. It is what is required is to guide them by applying

01:11:54--> 01:11:54

Instagram

01:11:57--> 01:11:59

is laying on your stomach. Haha.

01:12:02--> 01:12:21

laying on the stomach, we can say is wrong. Why? Because the promises associated with the Hellfire saying when he told the companion who was lying on the stomach, it will not lie in your stomach because that's the way that people have the Hellfire lie.

01:12:23--> 01:12:41

So and that case once has been associated with callfire then we say it's Haram, we shouldn't do it. And Alhamdulillah modern science has proven that it is harmful. It is harmful except for some occasions. You know, there's some occasions like if you have

01:12:42--> 01:13:09

COVID and you having difficulty breathing, then they encourage the person to lie on this on their stomach when it's lying on their chest to help in the breathing. So there are circumstances when it is when one may do so you know, out of need necessity, etc. But normally to go to sleep is lying, meaning going to sleep rarely going to sleep on one stomach. It should be

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

avoided at all costs.

01:13:14--> 01:13:18

Go to sleep on your side, right side, left side or on your back. But not

01:13:21--> 01:13:25

for the question. I was chatting with a girl for a long time as

01:13:29--> 01:13:31

well. It depends on what you're chatting about.

01:13:33--> 01:13:34

If you're chatting about Hello,

01:13:38--> 01:13:49

then it could be Hello. If the circumstances are high land could be Hello. But if you're chanting about haram then of course, it's automatically

01:13:55--> 01:13:58

think that's now the end of our questions.

01:13:59--> 01:14:11

So we'll be closing our session today's session subhanak Allah Mohammed aka the shadow Allah and let's start Federica wanted to go like

01:14:29--> 01:14:29

and
