This is session
45 part one,
which we're looking at two names
annually, which is named number 44 and del Mola, which is name number 65.
Hello Ollie, which is named number 64 and Al Mohler, which is named number 65.
With regards to the Quranic location, the Divine Name on well he is mentioned in five places in the crime among them, Allahu allein Medina amanu euregio home minute Zulu Mattila nor so Al Baqarah verse 257
and Al Mola, as mentioned some 12 times in the cry.
An example of that can be found in Surah Mohammed verse 11 dialect can be an Allah Mola Mola, levena amanu Bernal Katharina la Mola.
In terms of the meaning, linguistically Well, he comes from the trilateral route. Wow. Lamb Yeah.
And while Yun is the verbal noun, or wilaya it has two main meanings. The first of which is to be close or to be near. The second meaning is to be an ally, or to be a friend.
It also means an in law, a guardian or a governor.
This route appears some 232 times in the Quran in 12 derived forms. Example of these
are so Allah, He turned away.
Allah is near or Whoa.
Al Mola, the protector and Alia allies.
Willie is the present participle in the file intensive form pattern of Wiley.
On the other hand, Mola, wildling will linguistically coming from the same trilateral route as well. He is a noun of place, it's McCann, on the pattern mfam
and has many meanings. Among them is one who frees the slave as well as a freed slave. So it has the meaning of mfold also
one's father, brother, son, one's father's brother's son, known more commonly as the cousin,
one sister's son, the nephew, a helper or supporter, a neighbor, a friend,
a follower, a partner, and ally, and someone who loves you dearly.
Relative to Allah, being unwell he of the believers means that he is their supporter and helper will give them a victory over their enemies is sufficient for them as a friend and supporter whenever they need one.
a close friend
hears their supplications
as well as their words of remembrance.
He is close to them, and they are proud of his support and call on Him for victory their battles. As for a lot being Diwali and Mola as both believers and disbelievers. As in the following words, some Maru do Illallah him Allahu
Allah Allah who hokum well who are assan huseby and then they will be returned to Allah, their true master
that's Mola To Whom belongs the judgment and he is swiftest of those who take account, Sorrell and arm verse 62. That is,
the angels of death will snatch their souls and bring them to a law. Their true master will own holds the right to be the ultimate Judge of his creation.
Mola here means that he is their master there. Oh,
Their creator and their God, not their close friend and supporter, as it does when use in the context of the believers.
Allah loves his friends, the only
from among the prophets, the pious, the martyrs and the righteous.
Lamb Doris, salami and Robbie. Well who are really you whom? The Macan who Yama loon? They will have an abode of peace with their Lord, as he is their close friend, due to the good they used to do, to Al anon, verse 127. Allies the Willie, their close friend, because of the righteous deeds they did, which brought them close to
as a note, both the Divine Names Willie and Mola may be used to refer to human beings as allies use them in that way.
It viability asset for either Lady binaca verbena, who
can who were Li Yun, Hamid, Rebel with what is better, and the one with whom you had emnity will be like a warm, close friend. So facilite verse 34.
Moving on to the application of the names
according to the principles, the four principles outlined by Bill buckthorn
number one to adopt where applicable.
These two Divine Names can easily be applied to human beings within the scope of human limitations. Both Divine Names are lonely and Al Mohler may be adopted and applied in two basic ways. The first is to be a friend and supporter to our fellow Muslims, whether they may be wherever they may be, and the second is to strive to become a close friend of Allah, to seek a loss of friendship.
In terms of being a friend to the believers, the concept of Islamic brotherhood and sisterhood is primary in Islam.
The Quran clearly stated that the foundation for friendship amongst Muslims is that of faith.
So rather than being merely friends, Allah officially turned all of the believers into one big spiritual family of brothers and sisters, in Mineola.
Indeed, the believers are one brotherhood,
which includes the system
among the things that the provinces and them did, among the first things that the processor then did after migrating to Medina, was to officially and literally bind the Mexican immigrants with the Medina it converts in brotherhood. He began establishing bonds of brotherhood while they were building the Prophet's mosque in Medina
with those who were present, and they continued thereafter, to accommodate those who arrived in Medina later on. For example, the province is Allah made brothers of aboubaker and cottager a binzhou hair
also between amadablam hubub and its ban, Eben Malik
and between up the rough man even if
and sad in our beer
once this was done, sad told of the rock man, I'm the wealthiest among the answer. Let me give you half of my wealth. And you may see which of my two wives you like the most. And I will give you her in marriage when her waiting period has ended. So the handlebar however I'm the man said there's no need to do that. Is there a marketplace in Medina where businesses good
side replied to a new car market of the Rockman when their daily and began trading. After some time passed, he joined the promised land circle with some traces of perfume on himself. So the products I sell and asked him
if he got married, and he replied he married a woman.
From the answer.
This bonding was critical at that time, because the Society of the peninsula was deeply tribal, and support was usually given on the basis of tribal relations. The province Arsalan himself initially enjoyed tribal support from his Klansmen of the crush the harsh might try it
at the beginning of his prophet until his tribesmen failed to stop him from preaching his message, which they viewed as disrupting the Mexican social and cultural traditions.
So the province is Ireland's creation of family ties between members of the main two groups of his followers the answer those are the people of Medina, the converts, lived in Medina and the mohajir rule, those who made hedra who migrated to Medina
in that way created a spiritual bond among believers, which remains as an example of the Brotherhood of faith until today.
Well, Mila to buy a new home Alia about the male and female believers are friends and allies of each other. So October 71.
In order to preserve the spiritual brotherhood, and the mutual support, it implied the prophets Allah also had to institute a series of edicts and legislate numerous laws to further strengthen the Islamic faith community.
For example, sacredness of brotherhood was further emphasized by the province of silence prohibition of the permanent severing of relations between Muslims. Abu Bakr Ansari, reported that Allah's Messenger said,
Leia, hello, Lee Muslim, and yagura how focus Allah is not permissible for a Muslim to avoid his brother for more than three days. So that when they meet each other, each turns away from the other.
And the better one, is the person who greets the other first.
Lady Yep, the obesidad.
Promises on them further stress the importance of developing the Islamic Brotherhood in practical terms, by insisting that it must also be expressed in the form of mutual help and concern. Abu huraira quoted him as saying,
on the day of judgment, Allah will remove one of the calamities from whom so ever removes one of the calamities of this world from a believer and whoever covers the Muslims mistakes Allah will cover his mistakes in this life and the next. Indeed, Allah helps his servant as long as the servant helps his brother while long houfy our ninja Abdi, my Canon, Abdu fi only AFI.
This means that the laws continual granting of mercy and aid is dependent upon one's willingness to do likewise for one's brother or sister and faith and in humanity. It is foolish for a Muslim to expect special mercy from Allah if he or she has no concern for the welfare of his
or her fellow Muslims and fellow humans. This principle is not limited to Muslims. It does include all human beings, as well as even the animals as the problems are seldom illustrated in the stories of those who went to paradise due to providing water for starving dogs to drink. And those who were sent to hell for starving a cat to death.
another occasion the bouncer Sallam also said,
Men, little movement, California should do bah bah, bah
bah. The believers are like one structure, each part supporting the others after saying that he puts his fingers together between each other.
In fact, even the Muslims faith in God is in question if he or she does not strive to help their unfortunate brother or sister, the promises and I'm restated the golden rule of doing unto others as you would have them do unto you in terms of faith and brotherhood as follows
Lion's Mane ohakune had your head belly Hey, my your ship bull enough See, none of you has truly believed until he loves for his brother, what he loves for himself. With such a background, being a Willie, helping friend, to fellow Muslims and to people in general is quite obviously, a high level of moral character which all Muslims should strive for
giving in charity.
All of the many prophetic instructions which enjoy charity come under the heading of the Wally's help and support for others. Being charitable is the most essential moral characteristic of the valley without which he or she ends up giving support for show popularity, praise and all other wrong reasons.
The prophets I seldom quoted Allah as saying
unfit Yagna Adam, unfit Alec
spend in charity, Oh son of Adam and I will spend on you.
We should believe that it is the right of the needy popcorn Lisa anyone mushroom that we are fulfilling and not a favor we are doing
is there right talk a lot calls it hot
as Allah has already entitled it that way. Regarding Zika and sadaqa is only the voluntary version of the same thing.
Being a friend of Allah.
Second way to apply laws Divine Names are Willie and Al Mohler, which fundamentally addresses a laws helpful friendship relationship with these creatures, is by striving to be a beloved friend of Allah.
We can't be a helping friend to Allah, as he has no needs. He is a Samad, the self sufficient, the absolute one on whom all of creation depends. On the other hand, it is we is creatures that have unfulfilled needs. Consequently, It is we who need to need his help, his support and his success and not vice versa. Therefore, we need a lot to be a helping friend to us, and not vice versa. Ali has designated among humankind, certain types of individuals, whom he considers especially close to himself, due to their having fulfilled the conditions which he set for his valleys.
Allows precise description of his Valley can be found in two chapters of the Quran.
The first condition is taqwa, God consciousness, or fear of Allah is displeasure
or mindfulness of Allah. In our Leah who l l Mata Poon well I can akshara home Leia Allah moon.
Indeed his friends are those who fear God, they're mindful of God.
But most don't realize that
the second condition is belief and no overwhelming fear or sadness.
Allah in the Olia Allah He not hoefflin la him were Allahu Mia Has anyone alladhina amanu who can who yet
certainly no grief
or fear will overcome the Friends of a law. Those who believe and fear God. So are Eunice verse 6263.
Allah expounds for us here that the true criterion of wilaya as divine friendship is a man of faith, which frees us from an overwhelming fear of this world and taqwa mindfulness of God, a strong consciousness of Allah which motivates us to strive to obey and worship Him in everything that we do.
And these two qualities are shared by all the true believers of course,
There are different levels of a lot of friends. The prophets are at the top, followed by the exceedingly pious Sidney Boone followed by the martyrs and followed by the righteous.
friendship with a law based on the FDA it
the close friends of a law are well aware that a law is an island, a lolly, Allah Allah, so Nothing escapes his knowledge. Therefore, they regularly try to feel its presence. They carefully perform all of their foreign religious duties, and piously tried to make up for any of the inevitable deficiencies in the farm. By doing a host of voluntary devotional acts. These voluntary acts help to protect the obligatory duties. For example, during times of weakness or spiritual lows, one may become lacks in fulfilling one's religious duties. However, those who have voluntary practice what we call the Sunnah, Sunnah prayers, for example, so now fast rapper would likely
neglect only some of their voluntary practices, while keeping their obligatory duties intact. If they didn't have a protective shield, the voluntary acts and they fell into a period of laziness, some of their obligatory duties are likely to be discarded, or neglected.
The more we strengthen our obligatory practices by performing voluntary acts, the more our lives will conform to the Shetty app, and the will of Almighty Allah.
This spiritual principle was conveyed to us by the promises, in a hadith could see in which he quoted Allah saying, Man, either Li, Li and for God, then to who will have
my Takara la Abdi vishay, in a hub by a layer my mastery to LA
I have declared war on whoever shows emnity to a friend of mine.
them most beloved thing with which my slave may come close to me, is that which I made obligatory on him.
And my servant will continue to come closer to me by voluntary acts of worship, until I love
my ears on the layer below often had or have been.
Becoming a Wali of Allah is truly a goal worth dedicating our lives to achieving. However, there are no shortcuts, as it cannot be reached except by the route prescribed by Allah Himself, and conveyed to us by His Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.
First, the compulsory duties have to be completely and properly established. Then the recommended voluntary acts of worship have to be performed consistently and in accordance with the Sunnah. Allah emphasizes fact by telling his prophet to inform the believers whole in kuntum to a boon Allah for Toby Rooney, your bibble como la, se if you love Allah, follow me Muhammad, and Allah will love you. So we're Allium Ron verse 31. Therefore, a lot of love and friendship can only be attained by strictly adhering to the directives of his apostle as the Sunnah. And by carefully avoiding all innovations in religious matters, this formula is contained in the following declaration, which the
prophet SAW Saddam was reported by I will Nigeria, to I've said, Keep to my sooner and that of the rightly guided caliphs, bite onto it with your moles, and beware of innovations. For verily they're all heresy with an all heresies misguidance, which leads to the hellfire.
One who strictly follows this principle will only listen to what Allah wishes for him to hear. For a law described the righteous as those who are the heart of a human Jai Luna callooh Salama, when the ignorant mockingly addresses them, they merely respond. These were for Converse 63
by him listening only to what Allah wishes for him to hear Allah as metaphorically become his hearing in a way similar to Allah becoming his sight hands and feet.
This is the correct interpretation of the remainder of the studies which we'll be looking at shortly.
where Allah says that he will become a human beings hearing sites hands and feet.
The false saint,
the fake Willie, most Muslims who believe in and follow Sufism.
have another view. for them. The main criterion to be a Wali, is for the individual to have performed miracles. What's the mysticism arose around the eighth century, when the borders of the Islamic empire expanded out of Arabia, into traditionally Christian neighboring regions of Jordan, Syria, Egypt, Libya, beyond
which had a long history of monasticism?
The mysticism stemming back to ancient Greek philosophers like Plato,
the goal of mysticism was to experience the union with God. And the belief that man's main goal lies in seeking that union
and Christian tradition.
Those who achieved that union were dubbed saints and miracles were attributed to that. mystic thought was taught in the major centers of Christian monasticism in Syria and Egypt, as well as in the monasteries throughout the Roman Empire.
Some Christians in Syria and Egypt, who converted to Islam brought their mystic thought with them, while others shared their thoughts and practices in discussions and debates with contemporary Muslim thinkers and philosophers, some of whom became attracted to that spiritual path.
Arabic Islamic terminology was used to absorb Greco Christian mystic thought into Muslim circles.
And a system parallel to the Sharia,
with which they name the 30, pa evolves,
those following it came to be known as Sophie's
because of their preference for wearing raw wool garments, as the Christian monks did, souf word for wool is souf. So Christian monks used to wear his raw wool garments, which would naturally be very itchy to be scratching you would not be soft at all the itching, scratching etc. And you had to overcome it, you know, by concentration on God, you know, you forget the world, etc. So this was a common dress. And then Muslims who came in through this path, now adopted this as Muslims, the Christian mystic union with God, the ultimate goal of the mystic movement came to be known among Muslim mystics as Falah
the dissolution of the ego, or will soon the meeting and unification of the human soul, with Allah in this life.
Those who claim to have achieved the union among Muslims were called Alia,
singular, Wali, the saint. The main evidence they commonly used in support of the mystic union is the remainder of the Hadith could see which I mentioned earlier.
In which, after Allah said,
my slave may come closer to me
by what I've made obligatory on him,
and he will continue to come closer to me by voluntary acts of worship until I love him.
Then the Hadeeth goes on to say that this Pudsey
if I love him, I will be his hearing by which he hears his side by which
He sees his hand by which he grasps, and his foot by which he walks. And if he asked me anything, I will give it to him. And if he seeks refuge in me from anything, I will protect him.
And I have not hesitated to do anything more than my hesitation, to take the soul of the believer who dislikes death, and I dislike arming.
So, however, the correct interpretation of this hadith is that the worldly of Allah would only hear and see grass, that is to give or take and walk to what is halal.
While conspicuously avoiding as much as possible, all that is haram, as well as that which leads towards it. Not that Allah becomes
your ears, your ears, that is your sight and you're hearing
hands that you touch with
your feet, feet that you walk with a lot becomes them. No, but they're saying that's what it is. There it is right there.
But the whole of the deal says otherwise. For those defending the Sufi union with God, in order to reach the state of data of the Wali,
a series of preliminary stages and states had to be attained, which they called McCollum at stations, and halat states.
A system of Spiritual Exercises was also designed for the initiate to progress up the ladder. These exercises contain tasks and they occur, often involving unusual head movements and body movements, sometimes even dance, as in the case of the Whirling Dervishes. Most of these practices are falsely attributed back to the prophet SAW,
through fabricated chains of narration in order to validate them in the minds of the followers. Over the centuries, many systems quite similar to the orders of the Christian monks evolved, named after their founders, like l cordery. You know
chisti, Naqshbandi, t janni.
The various Sufi orders also developed similar housing schemes, like the Christian monasteries, which were called zaharias, or corners. These orders and Sufi mystic thought became so widespread that they were followed not only by the ignorant masses all over the Muslim world, but even by many of the leading scholars as well.
The Sufi way, became very attractive to the general public and spread rapidly among them because it offered shortcuts to agenda.
Some like the followers of the late Chef nasm and Cobra See, died in 2014, who claimed leadership of the Naqshbandi
Sufi order upon a Sufi order.
Thought is the tea teach that at the time of death,
Sheriff nauseum would intercede and hand over the soles of his followers to the angel of death, the Angel of Death will not directly take their souls, he will be there.
Furthermore, Chef Nazim will prompt his followers with the answers to the questions of the two angels, one Khurana here in the grave, who is your Lord? He'll be there to tell you a lot. What is your religion? He will be there to tell you Islam.
And who was your prophet? He'll be there to tell you, Mohammed, those are the right answers. So you're guaranteed paradise. That's what he was guaranteed.
In terms of miracle workers among the Muslim masses, the main criterion for wilaya sainthood became the performance of miracles as it was among the Catholics and still it's, they call the miracles of the Willys chronomat to distinguish them from the miracles of the prophets, common people the faith or practice of
the miracle worker was of little or no consequence.
Some who have been designated as saints held heretical beliefs and practices, while others were known to have abandoned this religious ritual. Some of them just stopped praying. They said, I've reached, I don't need to pray anymore. Yet others were even involved in licensures and vulgar behavior. However, nowhere as Allah made the working of miracles as a stipulation for his Wali, people made
the saints list. In spite of the clear Islamic texts regarding a laws, wellies, and hierarchy of so called Muslim saints, similar to the list of the Roman Catholic saints, for every occasion, has become a prominent feature in Sufi circles. And among the masses who blindly follow that they're called the list starting from the bottom.
In general, they're all called to be Java like,
but in ascending order from the bottom, the lowest level of these rigid or lame or men of the unseen world,
there are 300 will call the IVR. The Chosen above them is 40, a doll, the substitutes above them is seven abrar. The pious above them is for our tired, the pegs above them three nakaba, the watchmen and above them, the portal, the pole greatest saint of his time, and at the top of this whole system, is the house
the source of soccer.
He is the greatest of all saints, who is believed in some of these circles, to be capable of taken taking on his shoulders, a portion of the sins of the believers.
According to the popular Sufi believe the saints of the top three classes are present invisibly in Makkah, at all the five daily prayers when the host dies, the bottom replaces him and there is a moving up the ladder of the
all the levels shift up to make fill the gaps.
So, the purest soul of each class rises to the next degree. Other Cardinal Gilani, who died in 1166
is popularly referred to as allows other
in order to do they call him but OCR isn't the greatest source of help. And in times of calamity, many turn for help crying out to him. Yeah, Abdulkadir. Those who know Arabic otherwise it's an old shoe or India or whatever.
Oh, Abdul Qadir save me.
May Allah protect us from such misguidance in gnarly law he are in NA Roger. To allow we belong to Him. We must return
a body of mythological, innovative religious celebrations and religious artifacts, like the profits, stranded here in Hazzard Baal mosque in Kashmir.
is sandals, found in Topkapi Museum in Turkey, his cloak etc, etc.
have been borrowed from the Roman Catholic
just as Vicar beads were adopted from the Catholic rosary
and the maolin. That celebration of the process and birthday is taken from the Christian celebration of Christmas. But perhaps the most
evil, the worst of innovations introduced by the followers of Sufism, my opinion and the opinion of many
is the belief in the intercession of saints,
angels and the prophets in this life who will carry their prayers to Allah
and the use of Prophet Muhammad SAW Salaam as a direct intercessor between human beings
However, Abu huraira reported that when the following verses revealed to the prophet SAW Salem, were Anzu asherah can occur Robin Warren, your nearest relatives, this was sent down to my mom's Sir assura.
breasts 214 the prophet SAW Selim, called out to his people, or people of Quraysh, secure deliverance from Allah, by doing good deeds, I cannot avail you at all against the law. All my uncle's sons of Abdullah Palin, I cannot avail you at all against the law.
Oh, my uncle abass. Even Abdulmutallab?
My aunt Sophia, I cannot avail you at all against the law of Fatima
bint Mohammed daughter of Muhammad asked me whatever you like now, that I have nothing which I can avail you against the law, and thereafter.
The consequence of their belief is that they pray directly to others besides the law, while repeating
the economic buddhu we can assign you alone do we worship and from you alone, we seek help. This is repeated 17 times every day if we're praying our five daily prayers.
And if they're told that they're not worshiping Allah alone, if they call on their saints, they reply that they're not worshiping their saints.
They're only getting their assistance. However, a lot of quoted the pagans at the time of the prophet SAW Selim as using the same argument
manabu ilani, for a Muna in a law his alpha. We only worship them these additional gods that they're worshipping a lot. The other perhaps
we're only worshipping them to bring us closer to Allah is just somehow
Sora Zoomer, we're three. For those who still insist on this practice, arguing that they aren't worshiping the saints. They are only praying supplicating to them, asking them to carry their prayers to Allah. However, the promises are lumped close that door shut
by clearly saying
do our who la bada
supplication that is do our is worship.
supplication is worship. Therefore, all our prayers should only be directed to Allah as to requesting those living to pray for us. There is no harm in doing so, as it was done among the Sahaba. Of course, they are supposed to pray for them. And he did. Of course, there are some sects like the railways, which claimed that a lie is that it sorry that the profits are solid is alive in his grave, and that he never died. Furthermore, according to them, the majority of Muslims who believe that the products are sold and died are cachers the disbelievers
I would have been that
they even leave a chair and a place for the private side someone to come and sit during their religious gatherings. May Allah protect us from such ignorance.
Baraka long faecal
we will close with the doula
using the Divine Names at the end of tomorrow's session at 45 de sha Allah. So we'll stop here Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
will now shift to our third segment, which is that of
questions and answers.
This meant that
tricel Ali asks, some non Muslims challenged eating poison after eating dates of Agia
it will not affect
so they asked me to prove this
to us dates and eat poison. What should I do definite
Don't eat poison,
don't eat it.
That's the same thing the Christians, you can pick up their book. It says there that,
you know, they can survive poison the bites of snakes and see things like this. And some questions tried to do it and end up killing themselves.
Or they played tricks on their followers one way or another.
But we're not into that.
The belief that we have is, as the brothers told us about idea dates, but
at the same time, the process and them told us to tie our camels,
protect ourselves what we know to be harmful.
So, beyond those things, which we know to be harmful, there may be other things which may poison our systems. And the Agile updates will block that.
That's how we take it, we don't take it that we eat a few advantage now we can start drinking poison. No, that's not the way
or Abu hanifa,
could you please tell me what all should
when it comes to selecting a friend?
But also should I consider it that? Well, first and foremost, the friend should be somebody who believes in Allah
should be somebody who does the basic
practices of Islam.
Somebody who is striving to get the agenda,
somebody who shares
and they say
areas that we enjoy,
you know, mountain climbing or bicycling or whatever, you know, means of
recreation, we share similar lights.
That's the end but what's in the beginning is that
they have a firm belief in a law they're not doubting about the law. They're not involved in open sin.
They don't need anybody to be drawing you sucking you into their
can we greet non Muslims
well the prompts are seldom said in general we shouldn't begin the greeting let them begin first. If they say hello you can say hello
hi you can say hi but no problem. If they say sir I can process and said say to them why Miko
nicely while echo
Okay. Why not? Why Alaykum Salah Well, in the time of the problem.
There were those who used this as a means of cursing the prophets.
So instead of saying I Salaam wa Alaykum they were saying a psalm Ali
Sam is poisonous, a poison be undo.
But of course it said quickly. So you can hear the difference between the Simon echo massaman echo
sounds the same.
So, the best way and this covers also intentions.
If a person is saying I said it, but in their mind their intention is not good.
Then you say well I like him and same to you. Whatever it is, if you mean good, good back to you. If you mean bad, bad back to you.
Simple as that.
So who are Basha?
Is there any wisdom
of use using two names? In this?
Alright, just random selection of names lahoma
it enough see
taqwa, zap key man, and the highroad man zakka
and totally you have
Is there any
wisdom of using the two names in the draft?
Allah has called himself
while he of the believers
and he's called himself mala for the believers. So,
as we pointed out in the very beginning, there is a difference between Wiley and monado. They share the same origin, the world he focuses more on the friend to whereas the Mola is more the master and protector.
So this is just difference of where the emphasis lies.
Kazuma Zubair Would you please explain to me the difference between Alia of Allah and Alia of Shabbat?
Well, you know who Allah is, and you know who shade on is and who, who is a Wali of Allah
is a friend of Allah, and who is a one year of shade on the friend of Satan. I think this crap quite obvious, doesn't require any great
explanation. This is not rocket science here.
A friend of Allah is one who
tries to practice religion, to the best of his ability. The friend of Satan is one who loves Satan.
And he tries
be as corrupt as he can be.
Ahmed Ali is the person who listens to scandal, the same as someone who backs by bites, and does he get the same punishment as the back biter. Now, if he listens, he doesn't say anything. I mean, of course, he should say something. And if people speaking softly should get away from them, you know, if he can't stop them, you can't get them to stop then it's better for him to get away. You know, he doesn't hang around listen to that stuff. But he's not the same as the back biter person who back bites is in a whole nother category.
Question is, one's wife died between husband and the wife's family,
who does who has more rights as to where
she should be buried.
once she is married,
she has come under
the guardianship of her husband.
if he wants
her to buried near where he is,
so he can go visit her grave. He has the greater right to barrier near where he lives.
Question from Omar, can you suggest any books on Islamic theology?
There are many many, many books.
If you go to Columbia law.com
it is pirating books.
They have in their theology section or theta section, many books there and they are all reliable books.
Question from easy and natural, it's a bit confusing on the process, someone said to his family, I won't avail you on the Day of Judgment, but he will do so far. Now he can't do anything for anybody who Allah has not already decided for
this, then the chef, ah, whether is the chef of the angels, of the righteous of the prophets, whatever.
This shafa is temporary or honoring them
because of their status in the sight of Allah.
They cannot of themselves.
make intercession for someone who Allah has already decided, is to go to hell.
It's for people will Allah has decided to allow intercession is given that
outward right to
do the actual intercession
by of course, asking Allah
so they're given that honor of being in that position, but they can't ask for those who Allah has already decided to go into hell.
Okay, from our Instagram students, why are there so many differences between the teachers? They're all code addicts? What should I do as a normal Muslim in the situation? Well, I don't think there are so many differences between the preachers, where you're hearing the differences, the big differences, most of you must be listening to preachers who are deviant, who have deviated. So they're bringing all kinds of differences. Otherwise, those who are following Quran and Sunnah clear carefully, there's very, very few.
And the areas which they differ mostly there's, you know, leeway that you could either go with one opinion or the other.
What is the punishment for Buddha?
Allah knows best.
But the bouncers haven't said that punishment is in the hellfire.
Again, obviously, there's gonna be differences with regards to the bigger Oh, big major, minor intended
ignorance. They know how a lot deals with somebody who does be
I have an issue with being diverted from the straight path? Can you guide me how to stay on the straight path? well read books of scholars on the straight path. listen to lectures of lectures on the straight path. And that's, it's your source of knowledge, the sorts of information. Now if it is a matter of sin, that you're engaging in sin, then get away from the people that you're currently hanging out with. Their peer pressure is obviously dragging you pushing you into sin, pushing you off the path. So you get away from them.
The place you're living in, maybe you need to make hedra get out of that city, get out of that town, get out of that state. Get out of that country
and get a fresh start.
And of course, ask the laws help
with one law, salami.
How do I reject birthday gifts in a nice way?
tell the person thank you for your consideration and your care and concern.
you know, I'd
don't celebrate birthdays.
is Sunni scholars distinguish between Hassan and Hussein in terms of virtue and rank? Or are they the same?
As far as I know,
was one of the righteous scallops,
he was one of the sons of
Ali Ibn Abi taalib, grandson of the province, Asana,
the processor and did say about Hassan saying that they would be among the children of paradise.
So, in that sense,
there is no distinction between them that sense, but they played different roles and
are rewarded according to the good they did and the mistakes that they made will affect them in ways which are not going to put them in hell. Because the prophets I send them did confirm that they would be among the people of paradise.
from Instagram students, what the need should we give to people
not to celebrate birthdays?
we can start by
pointing out that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not celebrate this.
we point out
that the birthday is an eight.
It is an annual celebration.
And the prophet SAW some lamb when he came to Medina
and he found the people celebrating a variety of different annual celebrations EADS and he asked the beaver Medina what they were for. After they explained it all to him. He said, Okay, stop all of that.
You only have to it's
didn't fit the political
End of story.
So on what basis are you then going to celebrate your birthday?
In our community, the custom is to give a meal after someone is deceased. For after the end of the widow, if you if I don't go, they say I'm exaggerating. And there's nothing wrong with it to get upset if I don't have good feelings about it.
that's your challenge. Now, we know that it was the recommended customer the process
for those people, the family who had a loss member of the family dies, that the neighbors friends and other relatives bring food to them.
This was the Sunnah.
Not that the people who suffered the last day go now on top of the loss, the you know, the pain and everything else, they now have to go cooking up and preparing food people are coming to them. No.
That's was not the way the idea was to make easier for those people. Give them a chance to grieve, you know, and, you know, in peace, not now burdened with having to prepare food and drink and all that kind of things people.
after the end of a widow, there was nothing
that may be their own custom.
Now, if people think that it is something it's you know, expected in the
Slap, you should do it,
then you have
if people say it's just a nice thing to do,
you know, woman face or
widow, she's had a loss, we want to give her something, give her a meal after it's over.
Technically speaking, that's okay.
But that's if you look at it as you can come or not come, it's up to people, once you start to make it now a requirement where people don't go people look at them in a special way, negative way and all this other stuff then ventured into the realm of Buddha about which deprives us of that said, Every Buddha is misguidance
Okay, another question from the instagramers
can we use soft music without lyrics or vocals for you to cooking channel?
Can we use music without vocals nor without lyrics without their activity using music? See, the key is now what is the music being made
with pivots made with forbidden instruments, however you use it, it's her up End of story.
Now, if you're using halaal music being made with
or voice which is halaal
then the content now if the content is haram then the whole thing becomes
so the content also has to be halaal the lyrics which are
sung said decided chanted or whatever

tracer lolly. Some scholars say
like doctors, I can like
don't use Word the Word convert.
the right word is revert.
This is a semantic argument that's been around for decades, decades.
We don't even need to go into this. Whether you reverted
when you were born a Muslim
and the family
took you out of it and made you capture some forts. And then you came back
to what you were originally worse we were revert
as opposed to being a convert, where you've gone from what you are in
to something else.
Just from that perspective, you are Hindu. You became a Muslim, Christian, you became a Muslim, Buddhist became Muslim, then you have converted.
isn't just semantics.
You can you call yourself a convert goes up or revert or whatever.
As I said, a rose by any other name would smell justice with
anything from Instagram.

Then so many one is going to the grace, seeking their help. Talk wise is in the heart, it's hidden. How can anyone know who is the Wali?

It's not surprising that so many people
