Okay, inshallah, we'll

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

Now move on

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

to our main program,

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

that of

00:05:12--> 00:05:17

our study of the 99 Names of Allah which we have

00:05:19--> 00:05:22

referred to us in the names of Allah.

00:05:25--> 00:05:28

And we are in part two

00:05:30--> 00:05:33

or session 45 be

00:05:36--> 00:05:40

expanding on what we covered

00:05:41--> 00:05:45

yesterday in 45 A

00:05:46--> 00:05:47

and which

00:05:48--> 00:05:57

we focused on the first of the principles

00:05:59--> 00:06:01

of Ibn batal.

00:06:02--> 00:06:07

Today, we'll be looking at the remaining three.

00:06:09--> 00:06:16

So, in sha Allah begin as usual, the smilla

00:06:17--> 00:06:20

Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah

00:06:21--> 00:06:29

All praise is due to Allah. And may Allah is Peace and blessings beyond the last messenger of Allah.

00:06:32--> 00:06:33

This is

00:06:35--> 00:06:38

part two session 45 B.

00:06:39--> 00:06:40

Of the

00:06:42--> 00:06:49

two names Ollie and Al Mola, the close friend and the emancipator

00:06:50--> 00:06:54

names number 64 and 65.

00:06:56--> 00:07:09

In terms of the location and meaning, the Divine Name and Wali is mentioned five places in the Quran. While the Divine Name and Mola is mentioned 12 times in the car.

00:07:10--> 00:07:18

And we're Stickley Wali and Mola both come from the same trilateral route. Wow, lamb. Yeah.

00:07:19--> 00:07:23

And it's verbal noun or Geron is volume.

00:07:25--> 00:07:36

It was, it has two main meanings. The first of which is to be close, or to be near that is unusually.

00:07:37--> 00:07:55

The second meaning is to be an ally or friend. And it also means an inlaw guardian or governor. Mala. On the other hand, as many other meanings among them is one who feeds a slave

00:07:58--> 00:08:03

as well as a freed slave slave was been freed.

00:08:05--> 00:08:06

One's cousin,

00:08:07--> 00:08:22

one's nephew, a helper supporter, a neighbor, a friend, that's the same as Wali, a follower or a partner and someone who loves you dearly.

00:08:24--> 00:08:27

So, both of these names

00:08:28--> 00:08:33

are being looked at together. As we

00:08:34--> 00:08:37

look into the application,

00:08:38--> 00:08:42

format, proposed by

00:08:43--> 00:08:46

the great shed, even bottle

00:08:47--> 00:08:50

from under Lucien Spain

00:08:53--> 00:09:02

is four principles of which we have covered the first which was to adopt were applicable.

00:09:04--> 00:09:30

And the second principle, which is that of confirming were unique, and inapplicable. Allah has confirmed that he is the Wali and mowla of all of his creation. However, he has instructed the believers not to take the disbelievers as their Alia that is their close friends.

00:09:32--> 00:09:39

liat me Luna alkaff Rena Alia I mean doodle mini in

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

the believers should not take the disbelievers as our Leah that is close friends instead of other believers. Consequently, the name Wali and its meaning closest friend or confidant

00:10:01--> 00:10:05

should only be used by Muslims in reference to other Muslims.

00:10:08--> 00:10:18

It is unique for them. And according to Allah inapplicable for disbelievers because it is the foundation

00:10:19--> 00:10:22

of all faith in Islam itself.

00:10:24--> 00:10:25

Its foundation

00:10:27--> 00:10:29

is Islam.

00:10:31--> 00:10:38

So it is not a matter of prejudice, etc. It's just a matter of faith

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

that if one doesn't share this faith,

00:10:42--> 00:10:51

then the status of being Wali to each other from the Islamic perspective is not applicable.

00:10:54--> 00:11:13

Muslims may have non Muslim friends or relatives who they treat lovingly, kindly, etc. But they should never favor them over Muslims, whether relatives or not, by making them their closest confidants.

00:11:14--> 00:11:35

This discouragement is only to protect the believer from undue influence from non Muslim friends and relatives. As Allah said, the believers should not take the disbelievers as close friends instead of other believers.

00:11:37--> 00:11:53

Neither this verse, no others like it mean that Muslims should not be friends with non Muslims at all, as some people have mistakenly thought in the past, and ignorantly continue to think in the present.

00:11:54--> 00:12:51

It is better to look at all non Muslims as potential Muslims, or as a good friend of mine, Chef Hussein, he calls them not yet Muslims. However, some Muslims insist that we should be harsh and rough with non Muslims to fulfill the principle of Allah, Allah and Al Bara, that his alliance with the believers and emnity towards the disbelievers which is most often mentioned in the Quran and the Sunnah in the context of war. However, in times of peace, when we live among non Muslims, our responsibility is to call them to Islam and the best way possible. And it is essential that the dye that is the color to Islam, be soft and gentle in conveying the message because harshness could

00:12:51--> 00:12:55

easily discourage people from listening to the truth.

00:12:56--> 00:13:16

Allah addressed this issue with regards to the prophet SAW Allah Himself, saying, Willow Quinta, fallen volatile Colby lam fabu Minh Holic, if you were harsh and hard hearted, they would have fled from around you.

00:13:17--> 00:13:30

Effective Dawa involves the winning of hearts and minds. And that cannot take place if there is hatred In our faces, in our voices and our actions.

00:13:32--> 00:13:33

For example,

00:13:34--> 00:13:46

when I headed the dollar section of an organization in Qatar, known as the Qatar gas center,

00:13:48--> 00:13:49

and I noticed

00:13:50--> 00:13:59

that there was a disparity between the effectiveness of

00:14:00--> 00:14:25

born Muslim Filipinos and convert Muslim Filipino do art. Now, I had set up the first data center Islamic Information Center in Dubai, and they're actually all the Filipinos that I worked with. And why am I focusing on Filipinos because

00:14:26--> 00:14:58

we could say over 70% of those were interest most interested in Islam converted to Islam or reverting to Islam, for those who prefer the term revert. We're Filipinos and that's how it is in the Gulf. In general, the vast majority of those becoming Muslims are Filipinos, reverting or converting to Islam from Christianity, either standard Catholic Catholic Catholicism or some of the different

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

Christian sects. So anyway, in

00:15:05--> 00:15:08

the way where I set up the first center,

00:15:10--> 00:15:19

I didn't have an issue of any kind of disparity because all of the duart that I hired, were convert Muslims

00:15:20--> 00:15:22

there. But in

00:15:23--> 00:15:24

Qatar,

00:15:25--> 00:15:44

I found they were already do art tour from born Muslim backgrounds. But didn't Medina or elsewhere. And we're engaged in the Dawa. And we also brought onboard some convert Muslims.

00:15:45--> 00:15:50

But when we looked at the numbers of those who were

00:15:51--> 00:15:58

accepting Islam, from the Convert Muslims, they were 10 times

00:15:59--> 00:16:25

what the boy and Muslims were bringing in, and the administration was somewhat, you know, upset with the boy and Muslims, they felt maybe they were lazy or this or that. So, I took it upon myself to try to find out, you know, what's at the bottom of this, why is this the case? So eventually, one of the brothers was a born Muslim explained to me

00:16:26--> 00:16:26

that listen.

00:16:28--> 00:16:30

In the Philippines,

00:16:33--> 00:16:35

the North, which was

00:16:37--> 00:16:39

ruled by non Muslims

00:16:41--> 00:16:46

during Ramos's days, Fidel Ramos, he

00:16:47--> 00:16:55

sent people to the south to Mindanao, where Muslims are concentrated

00:16:56--> 00:17:10

and dominated the country today became the majority. And in the course of the struggle, as they tried to impose themselves, and their

00:17:11--> 00:17:12

people

00:17:13--> 00:17:19

would take over our lands and the struggle that was involved. Many Muslims lost their lives.

00:17:20--> 00:17:36

You know, so virtually every one of the duart had some relative who was killed by you know, Christian Northerners in the process of subjugating the South trying to subjugate the South.

00:17:38--> 00:17:43

Eventually, a truce was was made, and

00:17:44--> 00:17:45

the war ended.

00:17:47--> 00:17:48

But

00:17:49--> 00:18:11

the hatred remained in their hearts, hatred of the Northerners, the non Muslims majority in the Philippines, so naturally, when they're out in the field of Dawa, and they were made to go and give Dawa to

00:18:13--> 00:18:14

non Muslims.

00:18:15--> 00:18:23

They had things in their hearts. So it's affected their ability, you know, they could just give them a book, okay, go read this.

00:18:24--> 00:18:36

But this is, this wasn't our it was destroying their doubt. So I made another arrangement, that those who were

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

born Muslim

00:18:41--> 00:18:54

Filipinos, that they should man, the training sessions, after people accepted Islam will just leave the Dawa, to the Convert Muslim dad

00:18:55--> 00:19:32

and leave the training to the born Muslim, who had studied they, whatever, so they have the knowledge to pass that on to somebody who has already converted to Islam, because of course, once they convert Islam, then of course, you know, Hamdulillah, you know, they were treating them, you know, this Muslim brother, so it's not an issue anymore. But without understanding that, you know, we were at a loss, why, but this was a clear example of what happens when our hearts, you know, are

00:19:35--> 00:19:45

distorted and in bad shape. We don't feel good about the people that we're trying to explain this land to. People will know it, they will realize it and we will not be affected.

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

So a lot of stressed that it was as a result of Allah's mercy, that the province outside himself was gentle to those who invited to Islam. He said for him, I recommend

00:20:00--> 00:20:14

Didn't mean Allah He left it alone. And by the mercy of Allah, you dealt with them gently through Allium Ron verse 159, further emphasizing the importance of gentleness and Dawa.

00:20:16--> 00:20:21

This verse stresses, that this was the prophetic way.

00:20:22--> 00:20:39

The die You should always consider the fact that Allah instructed Prophet Moses and era to gently communicate the message of Islam to Pharaoh, who was at that time claiming he was God.

00:20:42--> 00:20:54

Allah said Surah Taha, verse 44, for Kula Allahu Allahu kolon, lay in LA Allahu Kuru, our Yahshua.

00:20:56--> 00:21:08

So speak to him, both of you, mildly laying with the crown laying in order that he may reflect or fear God.

00:21:11--> 00:21:14

So we should always think to ourselves,

00:21:16--> 00:21:18

is the person who we're calling to Islam

00:21:21--> 00:21:23

worse than Pharaoh.

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

So we don't need to give them

00:21:28--> 00:21:29

the message gently.

00:21:30--> 00:21:38

Or we should ask ourselves, are we better then Moosa and Harun?

00:21:39--> 00:21:43

So we don't need to give it to them gently.

00:21:44--> 00:21:53

You know, we have another way, which is a better way? Of course not. That would be arrogance at its peak.

00:21:54--> 00:22:06

So always remember and be humble. In terms of conveying the message. The person we're talking to is not worse than Pharaoh, and we are not better than Moses.

00:22:08--> 00:22:10

Prophet SAW Selim also prayed,

00:22:11--> 00:22:28

saying, Oh Allah, be hard on whoever acquires control over the affairs of my nation and is hard on them and be kind to those who gain control over the affairs of my nation. And its kind to them.

00:22:31--> 00:22:54

gentleness and our affects the hearts of those being invited and makes them want to listen to the message. The Messenger of Allah was reported by his wife Ayesha to I've said, in a rifka lie akuna Fie chez Ella Zanna. Well, I Yun Zhu min che Illa Shana.

00:22:55--> 00:23:07

Whenever gentleness is in anything, it will devise it. And whenever it is withdrawn, from anything, it defaces it.

00:23:09--> 00:23:26

And the prophet SAW Salem was also quoted by Julia saying, My youth may you're from a risk, you're from a higher, one deprived of gentleness is deprived of all good.

00:23:27--> 00:23:28

So

00:23:30--> 00:23:34

very important point to consider in our Dawa

00:23:36--> 00:23:41

and to implement in our lives in sha Allah.

00:23:43--> 00:23:45

Moving on to the third

00:23:46--> 00:23:53

principle of given by Paul, which is to have hope, where there is a promise.

00:23:54--> 00:24:03

Now these two Divine Names and Willie and Al Mohler contain open promises of a loss support and his ultimate victory.

00:24:05--> 00:24:17

Having Allah as our close friend ensures victory and the ability to overcome any situation against all odds. I've already reported a loss messenger saying

00:24:18--> 00:24:37

in Allah tala man either Li Malian faqad, then to who will have Indeed Allah said I've declared war on everyone who shows emnity towards a friend of mine.

00:24:39--> 00:24:41

We mentioned this earlier

00:24:43--> 00:24:59

in another context, but in here in this hadith could see the promise or Salam quoted Allah as warning anyone who intends or seeks to harm a Wali of his unjustly that he will go to war against figuratively speaking

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

If we become one of them a lot

00:25:04--> 00:25:17

of his friends, a lot of promises to go to war against them in our defense. So Pamela, what more could we ask for? The promise of Allah is truth

00:25:18--> 00:25:50

and he is the all powerful alcovy and ultimate team. Consequently, his support is guaranteed. without a shadow of a doubt. We only have to do our part, making the necessary sacrifices in order to enter into the Brotherhood of the laws, friends, as a special friend and supporter, he also promises us at the end of this life, and abode

00:25:51--> 00:26:15

of everlasting peace, due to our regular remembrance of him before, during and after all of our affairs. We will find peace of mind and contentment of heart as he promised Allah decree law he taught to my inner pillow, it is only when the remembrance of Allah that hearts find rest.

00:26:19--> 00:26:20

Allah also said

00:26:21--> 00:26:41

la home Dara salami in the rub him, Well, who will you be my Kanu Yama loon, they will have the abode of peace with their Lord. And he is their close friend. Due to what good they did, to Al anon verse 127.

00:26:43--> 00:27:24

The two names also contain hope that we all can become Alia of Allah law. Since that honor is something that we have to earn through righteous deeds it has caused is comprised of these of the heart and the body, and is not just a random gift, which allow gifts to whomever he wishes as Sophie's claim. It's true that he gives to whomever he wishes, but it's whomever he wishes, who have made the effort. It's not just randomly giving it to Tom, Dick, and Harry Achmed, Khalid, and the asset.

00:27:26--> 00:27:42

So there is no connection between our efforts, and a lot of giving us that. So this is why it's important, because, you know, Sophie's explained Sophie's

00:27:44--> 00:27:44

have

00:27:45--> 00:27:56

identified people as being wellies, or Alia, from the outer layer below who you would least suspect

00:27:57--> 00:28:15

because they had no knowledge. They're ignorant. They're not engaged in the dean or whatever. They're just begging in the streets and somebody says, Ah, this is the one you lost. Oh, yeah. And that person can take that and run with it.

00:28:18--> 00:28:25

So it's not surprising when we look at the list of various prominent Sufi saints.

00:28:27--> 00:28:34

There are names of people like the ninth century mystic aloha Lodge,

00:28:36--> 00:29:06

who was publicly executed as an apostate for daring to openly claim divinity in his famous pronouncement. And Aha, I am the reality when Allah already said that it can be an Allah, who will Hawk well and who you're Hill Mota. That is so because a lot is the reality and he gives life to the dead. Soil heads for six.

00:29:07--> 00:29:14

In his public trial, her largest public trial, when he was asked to recant,

00:29:15--> 00:29:35

take back that statement, or explain it. For those who had charged him with heresy. He stood up in the cloak in the courtroom and open up his cloak and shouted, there is nothing inside this cloak, except Allah

00:29:36--> 00:29:53

was promptly ruled guilty and executed by decapitation. What led this deranged individual to make such a pronouncement was his belief in the heretical concepts of will sue and Fina

00:29:55--> 00:30:00

Sophie's have many false hopes when you go

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

To a liar.

00:30:02--> 00:30:20

That's the friendship with Allah. Many special claims have been made for their saints. For example, most orders claim that a law will be seen in this life. When the state of will sue, the arrival, you've arrived at the law

00:30:21--> 00:30:46

is achieved. However, when I Isha wife of the prophet SAW Selim was asked by one of her students by the name of my stroke. If Prophet Muhammad wa sallam had seen his Lord, she replied to him, saying, My hair is standing on end, because of what you have asked. Whoever tells you that Muhammad SAW his Lord has lied.

00:30:47--> 00:30:59

And when the prophet SAW Selim his companion, I was asked the prophet SAW, if he saw his Lord, the prophet SAW, Selim replied, there was only light, how could I see?

00:31:01--> 00:31:21

The prophets I said, I'm on another occasion, had said, the deeds of the night, go up to him go up to Allah before the deeds of the day. And those of the day go up before those of the night and his veil is light.

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

That's just clarifying. In case some people said, problems or some studies, he saw a light Oh, that was Allah. No.

00:31:32--> 00:31:38

Yes, Allah says he's notice on my watch. But it doesn't mean light as we know it,

00:31:40--> 00:31:58

is the guidance of all legends in the heavens in the earth. Furthermore, in Surah, verse 143, Moses was shown by a law that neither he nor any human being, could withstand seeing a law in this life.

00:31:59--> 00:32:28

He revealed some of his divine being to a nearby mountain, that is Allah, Allah revealed some of his divine being to a nearby mountain which crumbled to dust during the revelation. Thus, it can be said with certainty, that Prophet Muhammad wa sallam like the prophets before him, did not see Allah, Most grades, and gracious in this life.

00:32:29--> 00:32:56

Based on the previously mentioned defenses, or evidences, the claims of those who are supposed to have seen a lie in this life, are all rejected as false. If the prophets alayhi wa sallam, whom God has preferred over all of humankind, were unable to see him. How could an ordinary man no matter how righteous and pious he may be see him.

00:32:58--> 00:33:11

The claim that one has seen God is, in fact, a statement of heresy and disbelief, because it implies that the one who makes such a claim is greater than the prophets of God.

00:33:15--> 00:33:28

Some Sufi Adams also claim that when the state of war school was reached, they arrived at God after going up the ladder, spiritual ladder,

00:33:29--> 00:33:38

the mundane obligations of Sharia, like five times daily prayer was no longer obligatory on them, they reached.

00:33:39--> 00:33:43

This was the goal to reach God, they reach God. So

00:33:44--> 00:33:45

these

00:33:48--> 00:34:38

acts of worship, fasting, pods, and all these other things. This is for people to help them up that ladder to reach God. So naturally, if they've reached then there was no need. However, Prophet Muhammad wa sallam prayed the five daily prayers until he breathed his last. But for the Sophie's, the saints were excused from all the [???]ty obligations. Some supervision say it's not all, but many. Pull this. to them. The Saints were on a higher level, even than that of the profits. The concept openly stated by Shiite scholars like Imam Khomeini in his seminal work, Islamic government, as I mentioned earlier.

00:34:40--> 00:34:56

Thus, the Sharia came to be looked at in Sufi circles as the outer path designed for the ignorant masses, while the Teresa was the inner spiritual path of an enlightened few

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

opinionated tafsir that's

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

commentaries based on these kind of opinions appeared, in which the meanings of the Quranic verses were bent and twisted to support these heretical ideas, these theoretical ideas of the mystic movement, Greek philosophical thought was also blended with fabricated Hadees to produce a body of inauthentic literature, which challenged the early Islamic classics and eventually displaced them amongst the ignorant masses.

00:35:34--> 00:36:11

Music was introduced in many, if not most, Sufi circles, and drugs like marijuana could be found in others as a means of heightening the pseudo spiritual experiences, which they all sought through friends in Vicar dancing and jumping up and down wildly. Such was the legacy of the latter generation of Sophists, which had been built on the false premise that union of the human soul with a law was attainable.

00:36:12--> 00:36:29

The early pious generation of individuals like Abdul Qadir, jilani, and other scholars, to whom some orders were attributed, clearly understood the importance of distinguishing between the creator and the created.

00:36:30--> 00:36:32

The two could never become one

00:36:33--> 00:36:39

as one was divine and eternal, while the other was human, fragile and finite.

00:36:42--> 00:36:47

Moving on now to the fourth principle of thought,

00:36:48--> 00:36:51

to have fear, where there is a warning

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

although the Divine Names of friendship don't contain clear warnings for us to fear Allah.

00:37:01--> 00:37:13

Allah has one of his severe and devastating punishment, which would be for anyone who sought to harm any of his Alia as we mentioned earlier,

00:37:14--> 00:37:21

the raw sentiment said, quoting Allah, not only will Ian focus as to who will harm

00:37:22--> 00:37:29

I have declared war on everyone who shows emnity towards a friend of mine.

00:37:30--> 00:38:03

These are unusually harsh and threatening terms used by the Almighty Creator of the heavens and the earth. There are very few places in the Quran and the Sunnah, in which this threatening figure of speech is used. The Quran, Allah uses the same expression only once. And that is regarding those who refuse to give up financial dealings involving Riba interest after its prohibition. And multiple warnings have been made clear

00:38:04--> 00:38:06

for anyone to follow,

00:38:07--> 00:38:09

then it will be harder been in a lie.

00:38:11--> 00:38:20

And if you do not give up the remaining interest, then be warned of a war declared on you by Allah and His messenger.

00:38:21--> 00:38:25

Such a war launched by the Creator and owner of the world,

00:38:26--> 00:38:36

and the universe cannot but and in total devastation devastating defeat for the enemies of Allah,

00:38:37--> 00:39:00

they will be completely and utterly crushed. Thus, anyone who refuses to give up transactions containing interest is classified as an open enemy of Allah and His apostle, and is eligible for destruction at any time in his life or her life, as well as a fiery abode in the next.

00:39:01--> 00:39:13

Consequently, we have to be very careful in whom we choose to hold me towards or whom we can inspire, along with others to harm.

00:39:15--> 00:39:25

Our lives may suddenly take a turn for the worse, where everything that could possibly go wrong, goes terribly wrong.

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

And where we are left devastated, in complete dumbfounded shock, or a total loss as to why this is happening to us. Don't be surprised if we find at the bottom of it, that we have harmed or tried to harm a close friend of Allah, without just cause. We may have inadvertently conspired with others, trusting in their arguments and accusations. There are rumors and hearsay assuming

00:40:00--> 00:40:06

That whatever they have said is true when it was not. And now we're paying the price.

00:40:07--> 00:40:22

We should try our best to clear our hearts of the disease of hatred, especially towards our fellow believers. A lot tortoise, its application in the car and to protect ourselves from this disease.

00:40:24--> 00:40:31

It is what I teach Alfie Lubin, again, then Melanie and amanu, our Lord,

00:40:33--> 00:40:41

do not put in our hearts hatred towards those who believe swirl hatia firsthand.

00:40:42--> 00:41:08

This is one of the signs of misguidance we are living in confusing times, with no clear leadership to follow. However, as a basic rule, wherever we find groups, associations, organizations, etc, which call to the hatred of our fellow Muslims, we should know immediately that they are deviant and misguided.

00:41:09--> 00:41:38

Stay away from them, and be aware of them. investigate them very carefully. Even though they may say a number of other things which are true and make sense. Satan and his followers favorite methodology involves mixing truth with falsehood, like the fisherman with a worm on his fish book, patiently waiting for the unsuspecting fish to bite.

00:41:40--> 00:41:43

Well, I tell this unhackable botnet

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

what's XML? hochkar? Well, I'm

00:41:48--> 00:41:55

not mixed truth with a false word, or hide the truth when you know it. Allah said

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

throughout America, verse 42. Instead our Dawa should be to declare why plain was the prophet SAW solemn left Assad was night is like its day.

00:42:10--> 00:42:18

The correct way is simple and straight, and easily navigated for those following the hack.

00:42:21--> 00:42:25

In surah, Yusuf Allah stresses this saying,

00:42:26--> 00:42:38

pull had he severely under Rule in a law he will Syrah say this is my way and I invite to a law with certain knowledge

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

should have sufficient knowledge

00:42:43--> 00:42:46

to invite so we don't invite people

00:42:47--> 00:43:00

to misguidance or ignites the straight path is not related to the many convoluted paths which twist and turn and take you away from Serato stopping

00:43:03--> 00:43:12

by irati must akima factor biru will add the tabular or Subala for the for Raka become unstability.

00:43:14--> 00:43:29

And moreover, this is my path, which is straight, so follow it and do not follow other paths for you will be separated from its way sorella numbers 153.

00:43:32--> 00:43:35

Butera also quoted the process element saying

00:43:36--> 00:44:02

the outcome was done for in avana, a qalamoun Hadeeth beware of suspicion. For indeed suspicion is the most lying form of speech. Do not be inquisitive about one another, nor spy on each other. And do not feel envy, dislike hatred or hostility towards each other. instead be brothers and servants of a lot together.

00:44:04--> 00:44:10

This, the companions of Allah strive for another Sidney Malik.

00:44:12--> 00:44:13

He narrated.

00:44:14--> 00:44:17

We were sitting with a Live Messenger on one occasion

00:44:18--> 00:44:24

in the masjid, when a man from the people of Paradise the sorry when a man from the

00:44:25--> 00:44:27

when the prophet SAW Selim said,

00:44:28--> 00:44:34

a man from the people of Paradise will appear appear before you now, that is,

00:44:35--> 00:44:49

under Sidney Malik describing a circumstance which occurred in his lifetime he saw with his own eyes and heard with his own errors. They were sitting together with the prophets Allah is teaching them,

00:44:51--> 00:44:52

guiding them

00:44:53--> 00:44:55

and in the midst of his

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

presentation to them or his discussion with them.

00:45:00--> 00:45:06

He stopped and said to them, a man from the people of Paradise will appear before you now.

00:45:09--> 00:45:18

Then a man from the answer appeared with his beard dripping with water from his ablution.

00:45:19--> 00:45:22

Body holding his sandals in his left hand.

00:45:24--> 00:46:04

The next day, the prophet SAW his son said something similar to what he had said the previous day. And again, the same man appeared in the same state. The third day the prophet SAW Selim again said something similar, and again, the same man appeared in the same state. When the prophet SAW Selim got up to leave, Abdullah bin I'm originally asked follow the map, and told him that he had gotten into an argument with his father, and had sworn an oath that he would not enter his father's house for the next three days and nights.

00:46:06--> 00:46:35

So Abdullah asked him if he could spend the next three nights with him. And the man agreed of the law related that he spent those three nights with the man and found that he did not get up for the midnight prayer tangent at all. However, if he did wake in the night, and shifted his position in the bed, he would remember a lot out loud and make tech beer until he got up for 5g.

00:46:36--> 00:46:40

He also never heard him speak anything but good.

00:46:42--> 00:46:51

When three nights had passed, out of frustration, of the live, and I'm living the last began to despise the man.

00:46:52--> 00:46:54

So he went and contested.

00:46:55--> 00:47:03

There was no argument and no strained relations between my father and myself.

00:47:04--> 00:47:10

But on three occasions, three different occasions, I heard the promises, or let's say that

00:47:11--> 00:47:17

one of the people of Paradise would appear before us. And each time it was you.

00:47:18--> 00:47:28

So I wanted to spend the night with you to see what actions you were doing, so that I could emulate you, but I didn't see you doing much.

00:47:29--> 00:47:34

What is it that you are doing to reach the station mentioned by the Messenger of Allah?

00:47:37--> 00:47:38

The man replied,

00:47:41--> 00:48:06

nothing more than what you saw. However, I there are no hatred towards any Muslim. Nor do I feel any envy towards anyone for the good that Allah has granted them. Abdullah then exclaimed, that's what has brought you to that special level. And it is what we are incapable of.

00:48:08--> 00:48:25

So greater challenge is the ability to keep one's heart clean, from hatred and envy, that it's earned this unnamed Companion of the prophet SAW a guaranteed place in Paradise, without him even realizing it.

00:48:27--> 00:48:32

The live animal also stated that the last messenger was asked,

00:48:34--> 00:48:47

which people are best eye you know, scialfa and he replied, colo moon, upon sadu Elisa.

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

Everyone possessing a heart which is assessed and a truthful tongue.

00:48:56--> 00:49:08

So they asked, we know what it means to have a truthful tongue. But what does it mean to have an assessed heart, as I said, and said,

00:49:09--> 00:49:10

the one

00:49:11--> 00:49:19

which is pious, talking about the heart, and pure, without sin, injustice, malice, or jealousy.

00:49:22--> 00:49:25

So this is what we need to strive for.

00:49:27--> 00:49:28

In order

00:49:29--> 00:49:32

to be among the only upper law

00:49:34--> 00:49:36

it is something accessible.

00:49:37--> 00:49:43

Otherwise the prophets Allah would not have informed us about it.

00:49:46--> 00:49:48

But as we have friends of a law,

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

that are also friends of Satan,

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

as we should strive our utmost to be among the friends of Allah, we should also strive our

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

artists' not to be among the Friends of Satan.

00:50:04--> 00:50:12

The main criterion is to have lost faith to be among the Friends of Satan.

00:50:14--> 00:50:27

The main criterion which Allah identifies, is having lost faith in that Gianna a shell Tina Alia alladhina Alia a little lady in Allah, you know,

00:50:28--> 00:50:39

in Niger alumna shell Tina Alia and in Medina Lai You mean, we have made a lot of saying, I have made the devil's

00:50:41--> 00:50:45

allies, friends of those who do not believe.

00:50:47--> 00:50:49

So our offer is 27

00:50:50--> 00:51:04

those for whom Islam has become only cultural rituals done to please others, in order to remain a part of a community or one's family.

00:51:13--> 00:51:15

Where it is rituals

00:51:18--> 00:51:24

they become perfect candidates for alliance with Satan

00:51:25--> 00:51:28

and his troops.

00:51:29--> 00:52:03

They won't continuously embrace unconsciously embrace the satanic forces. But unconsciously they will increasingly open themselves up for the satanic influences. And well he Allah also warns the unconscious allies of shade shade on on the consequences of they're opening themselves up for satanic influence. Saying one lady in a cafe through Alia omo

00:52:05--> 00:52:24

you're a Jew now home millinery Illa Zola, Matt, as for those who disbelieve, their allies are the false gods, who take them out of the light and into the darkness. Those are the people of the fire, and they will be in it forever.

00:52:26--> 00:52:29

Surah Al Baqarah verse 257.

00:52:31--> 00:52:46

Whatever light of faith they possess, will be stamped out, leaving them in darkness of misguidance and sin, which ultimately leads to the complete destruction in the hellfire.

00:52:47--> 00:52:54

However, as long as we are alive, the possibility remains that we can escape this darkness,

00:52:55--> 00:53:03

it will become increasingly difficult. The longer we stay in the company of the established friends of Satan.

00:53:04--> 00:53:19

Free Will remains with us until our last breath. So we should never give up completely. May Allah help and protect us all from falling into such a state. I mean,

00:53:21--> 00:53:28

it's worth noting that the great 14th century

00:53:29--> 00:53:32

Christian era, scholar Ibn taymiyyah,

00:53:33--> 00:53:42

died in 1328 wrote a book on this topic called the Friends of a law and the friends of Satan,

00:53:43--> 00:53:48

which goes into great detail regarding this battle between the two.

00:53:49--> 00:54:00

It is well worth reading, for greater understanding on this vital topic of applying allows Divine Names and while he and Al Mohler

00:54:02--> 00:54:16

will now call on the law using these names or law. Yeah, well, he Yeah, Mola altre when Molina for sure, Lana, we're Hamner and the higher room offering.

00:54:17--> 00:54:25

You are our guardian. So forgive us and have mercy upon us. For you are the best of those who forgive.

00:54:26--> 00:54:37

fattier somehow it will out, enter will Li for dunya will asherah what funny muslimah while Hackney the solid

00:54:52--> 00:54:59

Lord. Don't hold us responsible if we forget or make mistakes our Lord

00:55:00--> 00:55:30

Don't burden us the way you burn those before us. Our Lord, don't burden us beyond what we can handle welfare and welfare lenna we're hum now under Maulana found sorla and an omen caffeine excuses, forgive us and have mercy upon us as you are protected and give us victory over the disbelieving people.

00:55:31--> 00:55:32

I mean

00:55:33--> 00:55:40

barakallahu li walakum salam aleikum wa rahmatullah warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:55:42--> 00:55:51

will now shift to the third part of our series. And that is the q&a

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

which everybody is waiting for.

00:55:56--> 00:55:57

A lot of people

00:56:05--> 00:56:06

So

00:56:16--> 00:56:17

first question

00:56:23--> 00:56:25

from a Sydney IP

00:56:31--> 00:56:36

Hadeeth if it wasn't for you, or Muhammad, Adam

00:56:37--> 00:56:47

wouldn't be created wouldn't have been created. Is this hadith authentic? No, it's the fabricated adage.

00:56:50--> 00:56:52

It's hot Miss Tommy.

00:56:54--> 00:57:01

Which we must wait should we learn first, learn Arabic or learn the Quran?

00:57:03--> 00:57:12

Well, you have to learn Arabic, at least from from a reading perspective, to be able to read the brand.

00:57:13--> 00:57:14

If you don't

00:57:16--> 00:57:20

know any Arabic at all, how can you read the Quran

00:57:22--> 00:57:41

Of course you can memorize texts which you need for the prayer those who are newly coming to Islam etc. They may memorize texts from the Quran, which they use in their daily prayers. But we should strive to learn Arabic while learning to read

00:57:45--> 00:57:46

from our

00:57:49--> 00:57:50

Instagram

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

can we wear shorts shorter than knees while length the fall?

00:57:58--> 00:58:08

No, to wear shorts which are loose. This is what they should be loose.

00:58:09--> 00:58:15

not showing the details of our thighs, our behinds and our in front.

00:58:18--> 00:58:31

It should be covering the needs because the promise on solemn had clarified that the hour of the mail is between the devil and the knee.

00:58:33--> 00:58:43

So it's not just merely covering it needs to be loose. So it doesn't show the detail of that body part.

00:58:45--> 00:58:51

Formula Ayaan, Zainab asks, does the law exist without the place?

00:58:55--> 00:59:01

Is the Messenger of Allah alive? Can we call on Him and ask Him to make to offer us

00:59:05--> 00:59:08

Allah is the Creator of place.

00:59:10--> 00:59:16

So, he is not confined within any place.

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

Relative to his creation is above and beyond it

00:59:23--> 00:59:25

is not inside of his creation.

00:59:26--> 00:59:27

Instead,

00:59:28--> 00:59:30

he is transcendent

00:59:32--> 00:59:36

exists above and beyond his creation.

00:59:38--> 00:59:42

And we have an authentic hadith in Sahih Muslim

00:59:43--> 00:59:48

in which the prophet SAW asylum ask the woman Where is Allah?

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

And the woman replied, for summer in the heavens, that's above everything above is considered to be summer in Arabic

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

So,

01:00:02--> 01:00:13

there is an answer, which has already been given authentically. So we don't need to get into arguments about

01:00:14--> 01:00:18

exactly where is the law located, etc. We don't need to get in there

01:00:19--> 01:00:23

that that woman gave a simple answer and the promise Our solemn

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

gave her

01:00:28--> 01:00:31

full recognition, saying

01:00:34--> 01:00:36

I took her for a minute

01:00:38--> 01:00:43

free her because she is a true believer based on her answer.

01:00:45--> 01:00:49

The other question is the Messenger of Allah alive and we mentioned this earlier.

01:00:52--> 01:00:55

The Prophet Muhammad wa sallam died

01:00:56--> 01:01:00

in this world he died he was married

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

the Sahaba prayed Salatu janaza for him

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

we don't pray salado janazah for somebody who is alive.

01:01:16--> 01:01:25

So that is nonsense. I mean, people try to make up you know things about

01:01:26--> 01:01:33

to try to explain why they think he's still alive. But these arguments are

01:01:35--> 01:01:40

rejected by the actions of his own companions.

01:01:42--> 01:01:46

So, can we ask him to make dua for us know

01:01:48--> 01:01:53

if you are praying to Him and saying, oh, Mohamed,

01:01:54--> 01:01:55

yeah Nabil

01:01:57--> 01:02:01

do this for me do that for me do the other you are worshiping Him?

01:02:03--> 01:02:08

Because that's application that do our problems I send them I'd said I'd do

01:02:09--> 01:02:10

poorly a bad

01:02:12--> 01:02:17

making supplication to anyone to anything is worship of it.

01:02:27--> 01:02:31

The Wire asks someone's parents

01:02:33--> 01:02:40

fed their children from haraam earnings. will it affect the children in any way?

01:02:41--> 01:02:42

in the sight of Allah?

01:02:47--> 01:02:51

No. Because the children are not at fault.

01:02:53--> 01:03:02

The parents whatever sin came from that ox, it is on the parents. It doesn't pass on to the children.

01:03:17--> 01:03:18

Leon

01:03:20--> 01:03:25

Zainab, there's a like Yeah, same question again.

01:03:32--> 01:03:40

kosamba Zubair asks, What is Sofia? Where did it come from? And who are the sell offs?

01:03:47--> 01:03:49

Well, the term sell Ophea

01:03:55--> 01:03:57

the term seller fear

01:03:59--> 01:04:03

it means Oh, we could just set it as Salafism.

01:04:07--> 01:04:11

And that term is taken from self

01:04:14--> 01:04:18

Salah means forefathers.

01:04:19--> 01:04:21

And when people use the term sell off,

01:04:22--> 01:04:31

they mean the righteous forefathers. So it's a sell off a solid really was just shortened down to sell off

01:04:33--> 01:04:34

and who

01:04:35--> 01:04:38

are represented

01:04:40--> 01:04:46

by this title? Well, we can begin with the first

01:04:48--> 01:04:51

representation which the promises made.

01:04:53--> 01:04:57

Prior to Nazi Germany, the best of people

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

are mine.

01:05:00--> 01:05:22

Generation. So Medina yo Luna home then those who follow them from Medina, Luna home, then those who follow that so the province or Salam gave special status, they are self, they are the righteous forefathers special status to those three generations. So they comprise the essence of the Salah.

01:05:24--> 01:05:33

And those who follow their way, are included along with them. Those who deviated and went one way or another,

01:05:34--> 01:05:36

then they are not included.

01:05:37--> 01:05:41

They may be referred to by another term, the Caliph

01:05:42--> 01:05:44

or those who came later on.

01:05:47--> 01:05:48

And usually

01:05:49--> 01:05:52

they use that to mean they came later on and

01:05:53--> 01:05:55

we're deviated

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

Ibrahim Adamou

01:06:02--> 01:06:11

are scholars allowed to talk bad about other scholars who have said something which goes against Quran and Sunnah.

01:06:13--> 01:06:15

Well, if

01:06:18--> 01:06:24

things which go against the grain and suddenly have been said, then clarifications need to be given.

01:06:26--> 01:06:30

Mentioning people's names and pointing the finger directly different people

01:06:31--> 01:06:33

only becomes necessary when

01:06:35--> 01:06:41

somebody is promoting this full blast.

01:06:43--> 01:06:44

It's their way

01:06:46--> 01:06:48

and people are being affected by that.

01:06:51--> 01:06:53

It was just a mistake.

01:06:54--> 01:06:56

Everybody makes mistakes,

01:06:57--> 01:07:03

there is no need to attack specific individuals for some mistakes.

01:07:05--> 01:07:13

The point can be made the mistake and be pointed out and one without name calling and attacking etc.

01:07:14--> 01:07:17

But where it's a part of a trend

01:07:18--> 01:07:22

path, a movement

01:07:23--> 01:07:33

then, sometimes it is necessary to identify the individuals so that the masses will know they will know better.

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

From

01:07:44--> 01:07:55

Lee how, what do we as Muslims say to those who are of a spiritual belief, rather than following Islam

01:07:56--> 01:08:08

depends on what the spiritual belief means. And that will determine what you have to say to them. You know, what is their spiritual belief? Or does that mean you know who is guiding you?

01:08:10--> 01:08:14

You don't need a guide well then why did Allah sent prophets

01:08:15--> 01:08:20

he said them for a reason. Because human beings need guides.

01:08:21--> 01:08:32

So to say that, Oh, I'm just a spiritualist. You know, I follow the way my Spirit tells me then you are

01:08:35--> 01:08:37

following your own desires.

01:08:38--> 01:08:43

And Allah speaks about those who take their desires as they're got

01:08:48--> 01:08:53

from Instagram students when we finish reading

01:08:55--> 01:08:57

can we pray without taking a look?

01:08:58--> 01:09:10

When we finish bathing depends on what you mean by bathing. If you mean taking hustle, can you pray without Voodoo? Well, hustle supersedes will do.

01:09:11--> 01:09:14

causal supersedes will do.

01:09:16--> 01:09:29

So, if you have taken a proper vessel, then there is no need for you to make Whoo. But if there was the made was incomplete because for example, it was from Genova

01:09:31--> 01:09:32

from having sexual relations.

01:09:34--> 01:09:34

Then,

01:09:35--> 01:09:44

that reversal should begin by making Voodoo you make wudu first and then you pass the water over your whole body.

01:09:45--> 01:09:49

So the widow needs to be a part of the whistle.

01:09:55--> 01:09:56

Astra

01:09:58--> 01:09:59

here

01:10:00--> 01:10:02

If someone diagnosed

01:10:03--> 01:10:12

epilepsy and buries it, would they be rewarded with Jenna? If someone is diagnosed with epilepsy

01:10:14--> 01:10:18

and they're patient with it, would they be rewarded with Jana?

01:10:20--> 01:10:24

Well, that's what provinces alum

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

promised a woman

01:10:27--> 01:10:28

who used to claim the masjid.

01:10:30--> 01:10:34

And who asked the process alum to pray for her

01:10:36--> 01:10:38

to remove the epilepsy from her.

01:10:41--> 01:10:46

And the process or Lum folder that if she's patient with it,

01:10:48--> 01:10:59

till she dies, not the schlesser a dying from it, but she's patient with it until she dies, then Allah will guarantee her paradise.

01:11:01--> 01:11:02

So she asked, then

01:11:04--> 01:11:21

the promise I sell them to pay pray for her, that at least when she has the fits the epileptic fit, and her body is shaking uncontrollably. She doesn't have control over it. That's her outra would not be exposed.

01:11:23--> 01:11:27

So the prophet SAW some made that too, for her.

01:11:28--> 01:11:29

So can we

01:11:33--> 01:11:43

make by analogy, the case for all people who have epilepsy, who are patient with it. Allah knows best, but for sure.

01:11:45--> 01:11:49

If you are patient with it, you will be rewarded.

01:11:50--> 01:12:11

Meaning you don't question Allah, why am I you know, suffering this? Why did you put it on me? Why not somebody else? What did I do to deserve this, so and so on. So if you don't go there, and obviously if you go there, then whatever reward is coming, it's been canceled.

01:12:14--> 01:12:15

So

01:12:16--> 01:12:27

it would be best to be patient with it. Knowing that whatever suffering you go through, sins will be erased.

01:12:29--> 01:12:35

inshallah, we pray that it's so erased, that you

01:12:36--> 01:12:37

or whoever

01:12:39--> 01:12:46

gains the reward that the promises are not promised. The woman who cleans the masjid

01:12:54--> 01:13:02

zohore, Basha asks, calling to Alia, believing that they will intercede

01:13:05--> 01:13:10

with a law on our behalf is major shirk? Yes, it is.

01:13:11--> 01:13:18

It is major shift you're calling on. That means you're worshiping other than a lot.

01:13:21--> 01:13:29

Because they consider allies supreme one God and they say they don't do shirk. Well, you know,

01:13:31--> 01:13:33

so why are you calling on

01:13:34--> 01:13:38

the Alia, they will say,

01:13:39--> 01:14:07

to help get our prayers to Allah, then what's the difference between you and the pagans in the time of the prophet or sell them? Or who Allah described as calling on the other gods in order? Leo curry buena? Illa. Allah is alpha. That's what their argument was. We're not we're worshipping them in order that they bring us closer to Allah. So it still made your shirt.

01:14:12--> 01:14:16

Anything from this diagram are finished.

01:14:18--> 01:14:19

From our

01:14:21--> 01:14:23

YouTube students.

01:14:24--> 01:14:25

No.

01:14:26--> 01:14:28

So we'll close our session

01:14:29--> 01:14:30

by Allah

01:14:31--> 01:14:34

Subhana subhanak Allahumma, Ambika shadow

01:14:35--> 01:14:39

and stop firaga wanting to work

01:14:41--> 01:14:47

barakallahu li calm salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato VML.
