our praises due to Allah and my last Peace and blessings beyond the last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and and all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day. This is session 44 B, or part two,
in which we continue to look at alcovy an element in the powerful and the invincible, named 62 and 63.
In terms of locations as a reminder, Alcoa is mentioned nine times in the Quran.
And Al Mateen is mentioned only once.
And the root of alcovy linguistically
is the trilateral cough. Wow. And yeah.
And it's very well known as we mentioned earlier, is Buddha, co attune power
and it had three main meanings. As you mentioned, the first of which is to be strong, or to have sufficient power. The second is to be robust, Hardy and sturdy, and the third is to prevail.
We mentioned that this route appears some 42 times in the Quran in three divine derived forms. Mateen, on the other hand, is in linguistically comes from the literal root meme known math known
and its verbal noun has four basic meanings.
The meaning, first meaning is to be strong, firm and hard heart.
And the second is to be solid or robust. And the third meaning is to be steadfast, determined, unsure, and the fourth meaning is to possess any quality to a strong degree.
We will now move on to the application
and the application according to a million bottles, four principles. We'll be continuing in this session with Principle number two.
We already looked at Principle number one, which was to adopt where
Principle number two is to confirm where unique and in applicable.
these two Divine Names are co E and l Mateen. address the unique and complete power of Allah over his creation.
We must confirm that only Allah has such night in order to worship Him through His Divine Names.
Even the prophets of Allah did not have omnipotence. So any attempt to give this power to Allah screechers must be rejected completely.
Consequently, the Shiite belief in the Imams wilayat of control
must be soundly and equivocally rejected.
start as stated in his book Islamic Revolution, that the spiritual status of the Imam is the universal divine vice Jhansi. This is the same wilayat of control.
That is something mentioned by the moms
and it is the vice DNC
pertaining to the whole of creation, by virtue of which all atoms in the universe humble themselves before the holder authority is one of the essential beliefs of our she a school that no one can attain the spiritual status of the Imams, not even the cherubim that is the closest angels or the prophets.
The universe is in the hands of the mountains. Alka Laney wrote a chapter in his book was Sol Al caffee, which is the equivalent of Sahih Bukhari amongst Sunni Muslims equivalent in the sense of authority
to amongst the Shia,
but in terms of authenticity, it is nowhere near it.
Anyway, in the chapter entitled, all the earth is owned by the Imam
alkalyn inaugurated narrated from Abu Basir at Abu Abdullah with the six emam jofra sodic supposedly said,
Did you know that this and the next world are owned by the Imam,
obey place it anywhere he likes, and granted to anyone he chooses?
Professor Mottola matahari, a student of emam Khomeini, he expounded on this concept in his book Master, and Mastership. And the title and in the chapter entitled The wilayat of control. He stated, they will either have control implies a sort of extraordinary and God given power and authority.
According to share, I believe in every age, there has been a perfect man having a supernatural influence over the world and as sort of control on the hearts and the souls of men. And on this account is called magette.
goes on to say we cannot determine exactly the limits of reliance of control, and the supernatural power of a perfect or virtually perfect math.
On the whole, the Quranic and other religious texts indicate that man can definitely reach a position where he dominates the world.
All such claims give molars unique attributes of being outgoing Mateen and Aziz etc. Being the all powerful the almighty having absolute control over the universe and its contents to their 12 the moms or their 14 infallible it's as such, it must be totally rejected as a statement or statements of Shrek and misguidance
Sufi writings include similar claims for their saints. For example, Shams Freelander wrote the following story in his book 99 Names of Allah.
Eunice Masoli owned a small jewelry shop in the Istanbul bazaar. One day care nurudeen Geraci, founder of the Geraci order of Hello at dervishes, walked by the shop and saw the jeweler. He thought the man had an inner light and asked his Khalifa whether this man should be taken as a dervish disbelieve, knew the man and said yes, here nurudeen went into the shop, he was eating a peach as he looked around. He repeated a few words
breathed on the pitch bit, and it grew and changed into a large faultless Emerald.
He asked the jeweler its value. The man was astonished at its size and beauty. I do not have enough money or property to purchase such a jewel, but I will give all that I have for it. He said pure noridian breathed on the Emerald a second time, and it changed back into the peach pit. Is this what you would give everything for? He asked? The jeweler was astonished at what he had just witnessed and became a dervish of pure nurudeen.
So this is like Moses changing the rod into a snake It was a lot changing it into a snake
or Jesus blowing on clay birds which came to life and flew away.
The power of to change the nature of Allah's creation in this way is the same as the Shiite claims for the remarks.
In fact, Professor mortal matahari noted in his book master and Mastership that this that gi ism is a doctrine, while misters mysticism irrespective of all the myths attached to it is a system they both meet at the point of wilayat. It is necessary to believe that either one of them must have borrowed the idea from the other. All historical indications point out that it is mysticism, which has acquired it from Shi'ism and not vice versa. This is what I heard his claim that
shiai ism is the father and mother of Sufism.
This type of belief, no doubt forms the basis for worship of the amounts for the Shiites and the 14 infallible themselves. So it is not surprising to find
in the writings of the likes of the Iranian Revolutionary sociologists Ali Shariati died in 1977
he wrote a prayer at the end of his book to Zainab bint Ali was the daughter of Ali and Fatima
at the end of his book called martyrdom arise and bear witness erode. And you owe Zainab Dr. Valley you who have Alice tongue, speak with your community, or woman whose courage has taught courage to your people. mention your name in the hearts and souls of the women of our nation, who desperately need you to put the fire of love and pain in their souls help them to revolt against their old and new foolish ways from the slavery of corrupted traditions and invitations, which are foul from being tools of the old strict traditions and new amusements. Sr zaner tell us what we should do.
So all such claims to humans having power over the atoms of the universe must be rejected in order to properly affirm the uniqueness of our laws power and his might.
Principle number three women but Bob still have hope
Where there is a promise. Both of these Divine Names are co E and l Mateen. contain powerful promises of support for the believers regardless of how hopeless their situations may be. For example, during the year of the Hydra, the idolaters tried to kill the profits or sell them in Makkah.
But he escaped with his friend and companion aboubaker even Abby hoffa, and took refuge in the cave known as shell, which is on the way to Medina. They remained in the cave for some three days and nights, until the makin pagan trackers were sent in their pursuit, returned empty handed to Mecca, and they proceeded on to Medina. However, while they were in the cave abaco was very much afraid that the pagans would discover that and harm may come to the Messenger of Allah.
However, the prophets wasallam kept reassuring him and strengthening his resolve saying, Yeah, backer
macdonagh B is naini along with our little Houma
overlocker, what do you think about to with allies, their third
abubaker himself related, I said to the province on Sunday, and when we were in the cave, if any of them looks down at their feet, they will see us
they would write to at the entrance of the cave.
Allah quoted the prophet SAW silence reply, latter husband in Allah minor will not be sorry.
Do not worry. Indeed, Allah is with us, as our Toba was 40.
As a note, the commonly repeated story of the spider spinning a web over the entrance of the cave is not authentic.
fabricated, though if allied wished such an miracle to happen, he could easily I've done so. But just for knowledge, this is the fact please do not
continue to circulate this fabricated story.
No, it's amusing or sounds exciting to kids and whatever. This is not justified. Because the prophet SAW Solomon said, Whoever attributes anything to me
falsely will find his seat in the hellfire.
Likewise, in the fifth year of the hedra,
the charisma Quraysh tribe managed to gather all the loyal pagan clans together for the final assault on Medina in order to finally and decisively stamp out Islam. However, when the Battle of the clans also known as the Battle of the trench, was about to take place. The pagan army encampment was suddenly overturned by mighty wins of a powerful sand store. The tents were sent flying, their fires were blown out and the cooking parts were overturned.
Furthermore, dust was blown into their eyes and their armies were scattered in total disarray and forced to retreat. Allah subhana wa with Allah and try in the event the Quran saying you who believe Remember last goodness to you when the mighty armies must against you and I sent him violent wind and invisible forces against them. So Allah verse nine
for RSL na la him Rehan. What do you know then? lambda Roja.
The Quran is full of examples of a lot of support for the believers, in the most hopeless of circumstances. Whether it was a law bringing baby Moses back to his mother,
after putting him in a cradle in the Nile
or a lot turning Moses stuff into a snake
or parting the Red Sea for the Israelites.
To escape the armies of Pharaoh, and to drown Pharaoh and those with him.
In fact, a lot of support for the believers is one of the main messages found
in the Quranic stories.
Some people wonder why are these so many stories about profits we don't even know.
We never heard of even. They're not recorded in any other books, they're in the products, a number of them mentioned.
Why is Alon mentioned all these stories?
This is one of the essential messages that's found in them
a reminder of a loss support for the believers.
real hope is the product of complete trust in someone or something.
full trust, on the other hand, must itself be based on a strong belief that not only is the object of trust capable of doing what is hoped for, but also he she or it is willing to do what is hoped for. There is no doubt that Allah will probably the omnipotent is Able to do all things. Allah Mateen
remains with us
wherever we may be.
And it only remains for us to do what it takes to deserve his support.
We do so by having confidence in the plan of Almaty
during times of difficulty, we should always find hope in the fact that a loss plan is Alma team.
His plan is Mateen firm, solid unbeatable, we should be confident that nothing or no one can defeat his plan. Even though Allah might plot even though people might plot against us and seek to destroy us, the reality is that Mateen will support the believers as long as they are sincere, and the ultimate victory will be there.
So we must train ourselves to trust allottee and strive for sincerity in every deed that we do in order to be eligible to receive his support when we need it.
cutterbar long who the other liban and our Rosalie in Allah, luckily Yun Aziz Allah has written my messengers and I will be victorious. For Verily Allah is strong and mighty.
So we should take comfort in the abilities of alcovy. Despite the enormity of Allah's might and strength, he remains extremely gentle and kind with his servants and provides for all all worshipers and even rejecters like
Allahu Latif, when we are a baddie Yara Zuko, Maya will who will come to you and as his allies suddenly Chi into his worshippers, he gives provisions to whom He wills, yet he is the most powerful and the Exalted in Might.
So we should therefore take comfort in him
are all powerful protector, our gentle comforter in times when we feel weak, and are overcome by our worries and difficulties? Is soothing gentle pillow
for our troubled hearts and weary souls is only a vicar away. As he promised Allah decree law he taught to my EndNote to rezone by the remembrance of Allah, what we call Vicar that hearts find rest.
We should also find comfort and hope in the promise of alcovy to help those who support his cause.
While I while I answer Renae law who may answer who in a law her locked away and as is a law will certainly aid those who ate his calls. For Verily Allah is strong and mighty, Surah Al Hajj verse 40.
supporting a lost cause, that is defending Islam, promoting Islam and living Islam. This is a way by which we also access his support. So when we're down and we feel abandoned,
then rather than just
closing in on ourselves,
falling into depression,
cutting off ourselves from the world around us.
Instead, we should reach out to that world and try to support the deen of Allah. Because of course, we can support the law.
So when Allah says that he will support those who support him, you know, it's supporting his religion,
the religion which he has revealed, and made us, the messengers, to carry that religion, to humankind.
So we need to get up rather than sit down, lie down, put the pillow over our heads, you know, we don't even want to think of the world we just want to sleep. Rather than going to that state, we should instead
get up and get out and go and do something in support of the dean. There's so many dollar organizations around us whether we get up and leave our homes and go to those organizations and ask, What can I do? What can I do to help the dollar
or it is going on the internet, we have so many organizations there, and they're all looking for supporters, people will help them in the dollar. So go contact these various
offer our help.
This is the way by which
laws help will come to us. Not the only way. But it is a key way which our law himself has identified. So this is what's
missing. For those of us that are thinking allies abandoned us, this is what is missing. We have abandoned our laws, religion, in promotion of our laws, religion, because we might be praying our five times daily prayer and fasting etc. But we're not making any effort beyond just doing the basics, what is required, we make we're not making any effort to carry that message, the message of Islam to others. So we're not really supporting the DEA by supporting ourselves by just doing our basics. So
this is what is in front of us, but for us to gain that support from Allah for all that he has in store for us, to be opened up to us,
in sha Allah.
Moving on to the fourth pillar, or the fourth principle,
to have fear, where there is a warning.
The Divine Names are co E and l Mateen. contain indirect warnings regarding the severity of Allah's punishment for those who reject Him, rebel against him and openly flout His laws, which have been revealed for the benefit of humankind.
Those who both fully deny a lost existence and attribute whatever goods they have gathered in this world to their own efforts are warned about the severity of his punishments throughout the
blind Shackleton Oh, now I see Then the comb will end refer to in other FBI NASA did.
If we are thankful ally increases us in favors. But if we deny allies favorites, indeed, is punishment will be severe. Sorry, brain. Verse seven.
So denying a lot of favors includes denying his existence as atheists and theists do, or as theists knew, who disobey God's revealed laws as a result of making their own democratic whims and desires their god who legislates for them
And whom they worship besides or along with Allah.
Allah noted in the Quran, Allah item and Taka, Allahu Allah, are we not seeing the one who takes his desires as his God? That's exactly what's happening in democracy.
It has become God
legislating for so called democratic countries,
that legislation is done by a majority vote.
and that majority vote is based on wins.
What they desire, what they have agreed on, which is pleasing to them,
which destroys the base for morality. I've spoken about that earlier. That is the biggest danger.
The base for morality is gone. Because what is good today can be bad tomorrow. And what was bad today can be good tomorrow.
where is morality that morality is changing all the times. So things which were not
evil in the past, are now evil. And people are attacking Muslims and others who hold by these principles.
spoke before about the principle of
marital rape, this is something which was unheard of
before the 90s. Prior to that, it was taken for granted all over the world, that there was no such thing as marital rape, because the wife is supposed to give herself to her husband.
But by the mid 90s, everything changed.
marital rape was now a crime. And it was being spread out across the world. And countries that didn't comply with it were attacked,
attacked politically, maybe financially,
by withholding aid and all these other kinds of things, trying to push and force everybody to comply with this new law
rape in marriage.
all those people before who didn't believe in it, they are now looked at as
know, etc. Women haters, whatever.
It says nonsense.
But this is the world that we live in today.
where people's whims now become the basis for laws for right and wrong in this society, moral laws.
And of course, the root of it is materialism, because you've taken away religion from the
decision making process
is just back down to materials.
Whatever makes you happy, without hurting anybody else should be okay.
Because it has no right to say it is wrong. As long as you're happy, and you're not hurting anybody else.
It's okay. So that's the materialist society, one in which money has become God, as the promise, as Solomon said, ties up the dinar, what did
the worshiper have the dinar and the deer will always be miserable.
accumulating and enjoying the materials of this world will not bring lasting happiness.
It will provide temporary happiness, but like drugs, when it wears off the emptiness of one's life will be back to haunt us. Which is why so many people
At the height of their careers, having gathered millions and millions, ended up committing suicide, to the great amazement of all their friends, admirers and followers. People were shocked
well known figures,
in spite of all the riches that they have,
but this is what it goes back down to, it goes back down to
can never be pleased, because our desires for material, I never satisfied.
And in the end, they are not satisfied.
Because the emptiness of what is behind it will ultimately show through,
to truly accepting ally in our lives. And worshiping Him requires us to be fundamentally grateful to him in all times of success, and patient with him in times of difficulty, and trials, as the prophet SAW Salah that said, A believers affair is a wonderful thing. All of his affair is good. And that is not the case for anyone but a believer. The good times come to hear is painful, and thus it was good for him. And if bad times befall him, he is patient, and thus it was good for him.
If we're not thankful to Allah for the good in our lives, we will not be able to be patient when bad times strike.
That's the bottom line.
For what will we have to fall back on for comfort? When the bad times strike? Instead, we will blame others take out our frustrations on them. Or blame ourselves the question why we didn't do this or that in frustration, or blame bad luck and commit suicide.
This is where we end up again.
So the only way out,
is to be thankful to Allah in good times.
That way, when bad times come,
we can remember the good times when we're not thankful to align the good times we enjoy the good times.
Can't be better. times couldn't be more fun. We couldn't be happier.
But we forget Allah. So we're only focusing on the happiness. And of course, we said happiness is like
These drugs which people are taking is giving them a sense of artificial happiness.
But the drug wears off. And then you have to take another shot, or take another pill or whatever.
And it wears off again, it doesn't last forever. And it just makes you want more and more till you either kill yourself you know overdosing
you just end up
adding a slave to this drug, if you have the means to keep on getting it till you eventually die one way or another.
we have to be thankful
for those good times
so that they remain in our minds.
So that when we feel bad we can do our sudo the shocker and remember the good times easily. But when we have been forgetting them all along, when you go into sudo the sugar initially you may be struggling Okay, when was a good thing, when when did a good thing happen?
You might be struggling because you had not given thanks you hadn't counted these things as being
They were just great, wonderful,
So very, very important for us to be thankful to Allah
When good cops and that's why Allah has us repeating 17 times a day,
in every unit of prayer, at the very beginning, the beginning words of our prayer
are allowed hamdu lillahi, Rabbil alameen
all gratitude, all things. All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of all the words for a lot to make it the first word, I'll hand
I'll have the very first word
I didn't just put it accidentally in the beginning. He deliberately put it in the beginning for a reason
for us to reflect
on its importance
and to make it important in our lives.
So Judas sugar helps us to bring its importance back into our lives. So please, you owe it to yourself to revive this
Santa Monica salon which they call cinema
and emphasize sooner why one which the province our son did religiously regularly.
We need to bring it back into our lives.
And for those of you suffering, depression,
I like to do
scheduled a sugar
make it a regular part of your day.
Every day, do it
till you find your way back in sha Allah.
So our fear of Allah's displeasure and its severe consequences should motivate us to be both grateful to Allah in all the various ways that we can show our gratitude and to be patient with Allah and the countless ways that we can show our patients
barakallahu Li. We'll close our session, calling on a lie using these Divine Names. Or law. Yeah, pui. Yeah, I'm a teen. We believe that your strength is perfect, and that you are the most firm in your decisions. So make us strong believers firm in our faith, steadfast in good and bad times. And always striving for justice. Yeah, I'm a teen adorn us with your reliance on your promise against the unjust and allow us to be comforted by our knowledge of your strength. Yeah, till we make us of those who benefit from the Quran and the Sunnah to call others to Islam, and bless us with righteous companions.
Yeah, Allah. fill our hearts with fear and all
of your greatness and irresistible strength and adorn our hearts with a strong determination to strive for your paradise. I mean
barakallahu li walakum salaam alaikum wa rahmatullah wa e about a cat
will now shift
to the third part of our session, which is that of the queue and a
questions and their answers
I would like to know why and what's the difference between these two words that Allah referred to the wives of the prophets in
Mr. Otto was out results.
This is just
in Arabic xojo means wife or husband, spouse.
zoologia is specifically wife.
means his woman,
meaning the woman
who is attached to him.
so much is the literal usage.
Instagram. My husband says, I don't believe in Anwar anymore. Can I live with him? As his wife? What? What do I do?
Well, if your husband says he doesn't believe in a law anymore, is obviously no longer a Muslim.
And at that point, your marriage was an old, cancelled
because you as a Muslim woman, and not allowed to marry a non Muslim man.
So, at that point, you needed to contact your family or whatever, seek divorce, get out of that marriage.
That's what was on you, and is on you, as long as your husband
says he does not believe in Allah.
Question sin seems to affect quickly good or bad,
yet good deeds, at times, we cannot see or feel the benefit immediately. Why is that
have long term benefit.
even if you can't identify the benefit,
you will realize it in time
and definitely it will be on your scale of good deeds.
And if your scale is heavy, with the good days, it will help to take you to paradise.
be detected the effects of it could be detected immediately or there could be over long term also.
No one may do a bad deed and not see the impact of it immediately upon doing it.
in my understanding really the two are the same.
they have immediate effect sometimes which is recognizable, visible, detectable.
And definitely they have long term effect as they will end up on our scale of good or bad deeds on the day of judgment and could either be a cause for putting us in paradise or a cause for putting us in hell.
kosamba is asking how do we cope with temptations? We seek refuge in Allah is what the browser's told us to do. seek refuge in Allah say I was a Billahi min ash shaytani r Rajim
benefi when Effie Venetia will never see
from all of the various ways
By which Satan
misguides us, we seek refuge in Allah.
That's the basic way and means
beside the polls. The last two polls cloud Robin follow up and close by Robin NASS, these are
in order to drive away safe tonic influences in our lives.
Of course, you know, there's practical things to do you know, if there are places you go, and you find temptation is high, then stop going to those places, if they're friends that you have, who
encourage you to do sin and corruption and leave those friends. So, I mean that these are those are practical steps. Now, the other is like a spiritual issue.
With this your hand as can a person just be named Mateen.
Is Abdul Mateen compulsory
Allah has used Mateen to describe
and Mateen in terms of being sick, it is used a thick or solid or whatever is used in Arabic. So technically, it could be used as a person's name Mateen could be
but an adult Mateen No.
Alma teen you need to put before it Abdul Abdul Mati
after a cola tonight, can a woman marry again?
Yes, after hula, a woman can marry again follows divorce in Islam, not like Catholicism.
A woman can divorce and remarry, similarly to men and can divorce and remarry.
asks, my Hindu friend says if ally is so powerful, and Honey,
why does he expect thankfulness and servitude he says it is human nature to expect thankfulness.
How to answer that for your Hindu friend.
You answer that by explaining to him or that
wanting from us thankfulness
is not that for his benefit.
It is for our benefit. When we are thankful, we benefit from being thankful.
you know, gratitude, psychology is now becoming more and more popular.
This issue of gratitude, in earlier times before in the 90s and 80s, prior psychology, it wasn't even included among the key emotions
that people should have to have a happy life. They didn't even include it. But it is the most important. Now they really realize it. So there's more effort now being done to focus on this, because we benefit from gratitude. They have shown research has shown that people who are grateful,
live happier lives then people who are not grateful.
one on one is to.
So this happier life that we live, the better life that we live as a result of wakefulness, this is benefit to us. It doesn't benefit Allah.
Yes, in case of human beings
We we should thank them. And that thanking is benefit beneficial to them also. And that's why, you know, Allah has instructed us through His profits, saying that
one who doesn't thank people doesn't thank Allah.
They're not to be thankful to Allah, if they don't thank people.
Hey, you know, the prophet said that to stress the importance of giving facts.
And as I said, modern psychology has proven the benefits to the
they even did I remember reading one of the researches which they did, where
they added two bills, when people are given the bill in a restaurant, you know how much the bill was, it's also they
put under it.
for your patronage for coming to the restaurant.
And they show it showed when they people who they didn't know when they didn't do it, and when they did it, they showed that a huge percentage came back because of that, thank you note.
So, you know, it's beneficial to the people that thanks, you know, benefits those around you as well as benefits you
Women going to the mosque for Friday prayers, is rewardable.
Like men for men, or the same as women, praying at all?
for women to pray in the mosque for Friday, in particular,
or for any of the prayers
Though in general,
the prayer in the home
is the same as prayer in the mosque.
for Juma, of course, you might have done in the masjid.
And there's an obligation on men.
But a lot didn't put it on women.
You went to the
requirements that are
in need of fulfillment within the home.
So as not to put an additional burden on the woman
who has to do so much at home.
to now go out.
Men who are already out there, that's their way they're constantly out. So it's easy. But for the woman who is constantly at home for the most part, taking care of the home going out is upgrade to difficulties.
So they get the reward. But for the woman who goes to the masjid
the act of going to the masjid and praying in the masjid is not does not give them reward that they wouldn't get if they prayed at home, but from their presence in the masjid hearing
benefiting from the
people around them
There is additional possible benefit.
So that's why the promises that I made said don't prevent your women from going to the mosques.
And it didn't just mean Juma
if they want to go to the mosques. don't prevent
Yeah, we had a long question from yesterday. Rasul Asad was asking basically, who built Masjid and Absa
Allah knows best.
Some say Adam Some say
