This is session 47
in which we'll be looking at the 67th name and hi
the ever living always living
which is named number 67. As I said,
and in terms of its location in the Quran, it can be found in seven different locations.
One of witches who will hire you
La Ilaha Illa who further Oh who mostly seen Allahu Deen is the EverLiving there is no god but him. So call on him and dedicate your religion sincerely to him.
So off here are 65 in terms of the meaning linguistically alhaj comes from the trilateral route have Yeah, yeah. And the hayyan
as well as higher tune are both verbal notes.
It has four main meanings.
The first meaning is to live
The second is to become apparent or distinct, the third, to revive
vitalize and call into being. And the fourth meaning is to be sound, or to be hold.
This route appears 184 times in the Quran
in 12 derived forms. Examples of these forms can be found in your heat, He grants life hayyan alive, I'll have to life the life
relative to Allah. Allah hate is the one who has a continuous life with no beginning or end, his life and all. Exactly, it's perfect. His life is self sustaining and has no external source, whereas our lives have been granted to us by the Creator. And he is the one who calls all life into being and he is the source to which all life will return.
The Divine Name or high
is combined with the Divine Name I'll call you.
The sustainer in three chapters of the Quran, which is more than its combinations with any other name.
This is a beautiful combination of the perfection of Allah's names and his actions. Allahu La Ilaha Illa who was hired by you know who the who sinner to Well, I know a lot there is no god except Him, the EverLiving the self sustaining
neither drowsiness overtakes him, nor sleep.
So Al Baqarah verse 255.
Hi means the one who possesses the perfect life. So all of his attributes must be perfect. His hearing his sight, his beauty, etc. On the other hand, human and human life are imperfect from all perspectives are hearing our sight, our speech, and actions are all imperfect. All the attributes of a law are perfect, because any deficiency in attributes will come from the efficiency of life. And his life is as we said, perfect.
Moving on to the application of ml bottles, four principles, the first of which is to adopt where applicable. Now the Divine Name alhaj is fundamentally a description of the perfection of a large existence, which we as human beings, and the jinn can never attain, as we are all flawed and imperfect. Therefore, revealing this aspect of himself through His Divine Name alhaj was not for us to emulate and adopt. The purpose of Allah describing himself to us through this beautiful name is for us to simply know him better to know who he is, it is to ensure that we knowingly worship Him alone. And we are protected from any satanic attempts to confuse the law with his creation.
For those who are confused about the difference between a stone or metal God of our own making, or a fellow human being, who we know was born, and we believe died, usually end up worshipping allows creation instead of its creator. The most fundamental difference between the nature of our laws life and the life of the laws creation, is that a laws life has no beginning and no end. No one gave a law life, but he is the giver of all life and it's taker, La Ilaha Illa who you're here to meet, there is no god besides Him, He gives life any take any causes death.
So a lot of verse 158.
We can be absolutely sure that Allah gave us a limited life, with a beginning and an end. for a specific purpose
as acting without purpose is acting without
Wisdom, and a law has already informed us that he is Al Hakim, the all wise the absolutely wise. Consequently, we do need to know the purpose of our lives in order to protect our lives from being purposeless, and therefore meaningless. without knowledge of our purpose, we become no different from the cattle eating, procreating and die.
Our senses become dysfunctional, and instead of guiding us to the truth, the only increases in misguidance Allah just this pitiful state of ignorance and heedlessness twice in the Quran using the same simile um, I said, I'm taxable and act Federal Home Yes, my own afternoon in home in Cal unami. Bella home addenda sebelah. Do you think that most of them here or understand? Indeed, they are like cattle? No, they are even further astray from the bath. Although the message of Islam is being given by Muslims, wherever they may be, to one level or another. Most non Muslims don't care and instead prefer not to listen to it or to try to understand it.
But Allah says I have created managing and people who are destined for hell. With heights they do not use for comprehension. Eyes, they do not use for sight and heirs they do not use for listening. They are like cattle no even further astray. These other ones were entirely heedless.
So Allah offers 179 cattle serve their purpose, which is to provide human beings with milk and meat, and they do it well. Alhamdulillah
they fulfill their purpose completely. However, most human beings and most of the jinn don't reflect with their hearts and minds on the message of Islam. Instead, they use their sense apparatuses, only to enjoy the pleasures of this world.
Consequently, Allah makes the same judgment on them as he did before. you classify them as being more astray than the capital, who can easily be herded. If they go astray. They can easily be herded and brought back then they can be milked, slaughtered for the benefit of human guide, eaten. Unfortunately, humans and the jinn prefer to live a carefree, yet pointless life to living, productive and meaningful lives.
However, the idea mentioned in the second verse, that Allah created some jinn and humans who are destined for Hell is difficult to comprehend and accept.
As on the surface, it seems quite unjust and unfair.
is the question which comes up from time to time.
In these studies, however, we should be certain that no one will be forced into hell. Because a law promised Well, I am limra buka, a Haida your Lord does not wrong, anyone to our campus for the night.
In the judgment of humankind and the Djinn, at the end of this world, allows names and attributes of supreme justice and fairness become fully manifest.
Based on his infinite knowledge, a law could have created all members of the human race and the race of genes who were to live on earth and elsewhere and immediately placed, some of them in paradise.
And the remainder in hell.
law could have done that.
For before creating humans and the jinn, Allah already knew what choices they would make in this life, what provision and opportunities he would give them, and then what state of belief or disbelief, they would die. Therefore, in that sense, it could be said that some people
created for paradise, and others for help. In fact, I show wife apartments as Adam quoted him as saying,
Don't you know that Allah created paradise and hell, and he created inhabitants for each.
Now, if a lot immediately after creation of those destined for paradise, he put them directly into paradise. They would not question his decision.
Those putting paradise would happily accept an everlasting life of happiness, and would be thankful that they were not placed in hell.
Knowing that there are people in hell, seeing people going to hell, they would just be happy. They will not question a lot why, however, those immediately placed in hell, after their creation would naturally ask why
they would feel a sense of unfairness due to their ignorance of what they would have done, had they lived on earth. Those inhale would relentlessly argue that had they been given a chance to live out their lives on Earth, they would certainly
have sincerely believed in a law and only done righteous deeds. No amount of explanation would convince them that they would have chosen the Hellfire impossible. Consequently, Allah allows human beings and the jinn to live out their lives on earth, and make all the choices they would have made. So that everyone who enters hell will know that they chose hell, all by themselves,
there would be absolutely no room to argue with the last decision. Instead, they will recognize God's mercies in their lives and acknowledge their terrible sins, in rejecting his science and guidance. And they will accept His judgment as being just and beyond reproach. However, they will still beg for another chance to do go back into this world and do good, as I mentioned, in Surah, such that, verse 12, If only you could see the time, when the sinners will bow their heads before their Lord, saying, Our Lord, we have now seen and heard, so send us back, and we will do righteous deeds. Indeed, we now believe with certainty.
However, if Allah were to send them back to this world, having forgotten what they had seen of the Hellfire, they would again choose evil and end up in hell as they did before. Because it wouldn't make sense to put them back in this life, knowing everything, because then who would possibly choose how impossible it would only choose paradise? So they would to be fair with everybody else, they would need to come back in this life, ignorant of hell and heaven. As they were, here the message and choose
Well, I wouldn't do ly do Lima Lu who I'm who were in the home, like as a boon. But if they were returned to this world, they would certainly go back to what was forbidden to them. Indeed, they are liars.
this is the reality.
Allah created heaven and hell.
And by default, he created people for heaven and hell,
but they choose
themselves, heaven or hell.
Moving on to the second principle of a mom, even Paul,
the guiding the application of the Divine Names.
Number two is to confirm were unique and inapplicable.
that Allah had created Ali and Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Olive Nabi tala.
From his light
Prophet Muhammad SAW Salaam
his daughter Fatima, and the mums are conceived in their mystical dimension as being a light that God created before the creation of the material world.
This light then became the cause and instrument of all the rest of creation.
The following tradition is attributed to the Prophet Solomon Shiite Hadith.
In the classic called behad. Al Anwar. This is a
major compilation of Hadith for the Shia. It's recently printed in 110 volumes, having over 100,000 narrations
narrations from people of the sooner also our listener, while jamaah are books that I should have taken, but of course they selected anyway, point is, he brings his narration
Allah created Ali and me that this process I'm supposedly saying, Allah created alien me from one light before the creation of Adam. Then he split the lights into two apps. He then created all things from my light and alleys light.
The first demand, Ali Baba Vitaly, they call him the first demand. He was the fourth of the righteous scallops. They claim that he said,
law is one.
He was alone in his oneness. So he spoke one word, and it became a light
he created from the light, Mohammed,
my descendants, that's Alex descendency, other mountains right? enemy.
Then he spoke another word. And it became a spirit that he calls to settle upon the light.
And he caused it to settle upon our bodies. So we add the spirit of Allah
and His Word.
And this was before he created the creation.
Such beliefs lay the foundation for the claim that Ali and Prophet Muhammad wa salam
and without beginning,
for if Allah is eternal,
without beginning, then his word must be eternal,
and his light, which is created from the word must also be eternal without beginning. Therefore, Ali, and Muhammad and his and his descendants must also be eternal, since they were created from a loss Eternal Word and light. That's
a equals b, b equals C, A must equal see
in terms of Sunnis, Sunni Muslims, so called Sunni Muslims, people of the Sunnah,
among them. They have also belief in the Mohammedan light, nor al Mohammadi Samson is especially amongst Sophie's also believe that the prophets Allah is created from a loss light, which they refer to as nor Mohammadi in support of their belief. A book was written by chef Meir Asadullah pottery in Pakistan called the shadow less prophet.
The logic being that since the prophets are Salam was made from light, he shouldn't have a shadow. This was deduced from a number of inauthentic narrations that he was shaded by a cloud in Medina, wherever he went, in Medina, a cloud with chariot
even there is a Masjid in Medina
called masjidul hamama. The mask of the cloud where it is claimed that the prophet SAW Salam headstone and
Cloud was there with him. Everybody else was standing there with shadows. He was without shadow because the cloud covered him
So the shadow less profits. But this Masjid is not considered by any authorities to be correct. No evidence to prove it. It's just a claim which happened many years back and a mosque was built and then Medina they had built many mosques to, you know, for a variety of different things. You know, some places you know, they claim Prasanna went up here and he spat on the ground there okay, they build a mosque, you know, then they went here and he used the bathroom here, okay, they build a mosque there and all kinds of monster came up all claim and it became business. I know when I was studying in Medina, they had this you know
10 different masks tour special tour, and you had guides to take people through to all of these different masks telling them this stories fairy tales about these different masks, it was good money, good money for the tour guides, right the mosque tour guides, but they were all sunsets, no evidence for any of them.
Anyway, so in my in Medina I, I prayed and I mustard, mustard Obama, I didn't plan it thinking, Well, you know, I'm praying it here because the process I love was covered by a cloud here. I just happened to be in that vicinity and I prayed in the master.
there is one authentic narration
which is considered among the evidences of the prophets salams Prophethood.
Found in both a telemovie in his sunon and emitter b shaybah, and his Amazon app.
They both reported that cloud shaded the process alum during his traveled to the Levant, Syria, with his uncle Abu Talat, this had this was classified so here by scholars such as others back
in his biography of the prophet SAW Salem, Mohammed bin Omar Shafi
wrote, it appears and he is from the 16th century so it's like 400 years ago, he wrote, it appears that shading him sharing the process along with the clouds took place before he was commissioned as a prophet.
Hadith on the migration of the process, alum stated that aboubaker shadid him with his own gone
to the zoo fees, nor is the first creation of Allah
and all things and beings were gradually created from it. mohideen even a lot of be
the end the Lucien mystic, Sophie
was born in Valencia not to mix him up with Eben and RB was born in Seville was a Adi,
major scholar who did a number of classical works tafsir of the Quran, etc.
Anyway, this other even a lot of the
he is entitled, as a shared Akbar, the greatest shift by the surface.
He elaborated on the concept that Muhammad wa salam existed before creation.
This is the doctrine of a neuro mohammedi or the Mohammedan light, the light existed before creation and everything was created from it. The word is the manifestation of the light, which is an was incarnated in Adam, the profits and the
sum total. I explained before that the job is like at the top of the pyramid of saints.
If not Adobe wrote, The creation began with nor Mohammed.
The Lord brought the nor from his own heart.
So behind Allah, the version point and Sufi theoretician for the the dean at tar was 12th century.
he wrote, The origin of the soul is the absolute light, nothing else. That means it was the light of Muhammad and nothing else.
So they believe that Prophet Muhammad wa salam was eternal, or without beginning gives him the divine characteristic of being ever living, which is shipped into our heedless mousy fat sherkin allows names and attributes. This forms a basic part of Christian belief in Jesus being God. They build on a mythical figure from Jewish scriptures called Melchizedek. And the New Testament Paul of Tarsus, the true creator of Christianity, takes the figure of Melchizedek, king of Salem, from the Torah, in Genesis 14, verses 18 to 20. And give us both him and Jesus, the divine attributes of having no beginning or end
for this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High, God met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him. And to him, Abraham apportion a 10th of everything.
He is first by translation of his name, King of righteousness, and then he is also king of Salem, that is king of peace.
He is without father, this is where the description comes down. He is without father or mother, or genealogy, and has neither beginning of days, no end of life, but resembling the Son of God. He continues as a priest forever.
And then the fifth verse,
Paul wrote, so also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high priest,
but was appointed by Him,
who said to him, Thou art my Son, today, I have forgotten the,
as he also says, In another place, thou art a priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek.
So, this is the scriptural evidence is used to support the idea
that Jesus was without beginning or end.
this comes under the heading of
us following those who came before us. The prophet SAW Salem Warren warned about this taking place 1400 years ago, and it was fulfilled in Sufism, and she is outside and Hoda reported the Messenger of Allah saying,
verily will follow the path of those before you step by step, an inch by inch. If they entered the hole of a lizard, you would follow them.
companions asked, or messenger of Allah? Do you mean the Jews and the Christians? He replied, who else?
The difference being, that in the case of the Christians,
a new religion was born,
which became the dominant religion of Europe, and eventually the world.
While in the case of Islam, it remained the belief of minorities. Why? Because Christianity didn't have firm foundations, so a new foundations could easily be made.
While in the case of Islam, the foundations were solid and preserved, so it could only be undermined by secret teachings.
Secret teaching, this is the super
secret secret teachings and the dvn splinter groups of the Shia, others.
Consequently, the basic foundations of the faith remained untouched for over 1000
Islam that we practiced today
was Islam practiced in the time of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu.
The Pillars of Islam, pillars of Eman villas have done exactly the same, we follow it to the letter.
How we pray the prayers he did not like Jesus, praying as Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim did the same way. He used to fall down on his face, and knees and pray. Moses is also reported to do and a number of the prophets in the Old Testament, but
only Muslims today fall on their face in prayer.
Moving on to the third principle of Eman, Bob bottle,
which is to have hope, where there is a promise, the Divine Name of Hey, contains the divine promise of support and help
the promise of a law always being there regardless of the circumstances. It invites us to trust in a law more than anyone or anything else.
If a law is always going to be there for us, why in the world should we depend on and put our full trust in others who may or may not be there when we need them?
We have all experienced disappointment in our lives as a result of depending on other human beings, as individuals as well as organizations and businesses. I've already quoted the Messenger of Allah, I saying
lie you lie you will do I'll move min min Haji Renoir, Hayden, Marathi
a believer is not stung twice, by something
out of one and the same old.
This is a simile what's the process I gave you learn from your mistakes. We have many opportunities to learn from the reliability of those around us. Even with the best of intentions,
as ultimately they are not in control of their circumstances. They may have the best and noblest of intentions. However, they cannot guarantee the results allows other dominates all and everything.
People may call it bad luck and good luck. But it is the destiny at work in all of our lives. Only a lost promise is 100% true, because He alone is not subject to other, He is the creator of other
so having learned from our many bad experiences, we should finally be ready to depend and trust in our height.
The only one whose trust cannot and will never be broken.
Consequently, should we should wholeheartedly put our complete and total trust in the EverLiving who will never die.
But Taka lol Hail Mary Leia moot a sub handy rely on the ever living who does not die and celebrate His praise. Sir for con was 58 all of us have experienced or will experience the loss of parents. The vacuum that remains when someone
who has always been there is now gone.
It is difficult to feel that vacuum and to cover up.
Many even become angry with their parents for dying when the other Billa seek refuge in Allah office for such evil feelings and emotions. But yeah, I've heard it. People say they're angry. Why did
my parents die at this time, just when I'm going to go and do this or I'm going to go and do that lead what died? How the Billa
as if they chose to die at that time.
Let's take our parents for granted,
feeling that they will always be there,
as they have been throughout our lives. So when they go it is particularly devastating. The good news is that we will never ever experienced that with a law, for he alone never dies. He's always there. Therefore, accepting him in our lives, and sincerely turning to him for support and strength, will bridge the gap and fill the vacuum, bringing everlasting peace into our lives. Allah decree law he taught my inner tolu it is only with the remembrance of Allah, that hearts find rest, to arrive, verse 28. Only if we're able to remember to surrender ourselves to Allah, and to put all of our trust in Him. Will we be able to escape the depressing and devastating effects of the unending
disappointments we will all face in this life?
Syed reported that he asked the promise of Salaam who among humankind had the most trials and he replied, the prophets, then those most likely than those most likely,
man is tested according to the level of his or her faith. If his faith his firm, his trials increase in severity. And if there is a weakness in his faith, he'll be tried according
This knowledge is reassurance and provides strength to handle the trials of disappointments. Regarding the prophet SAW Solomon's biography.
If we read it, it will reinforce this reality.
For it was ultimately his trust in God which guide him through the many trials that he faced. While on a law he failure to walk KalEl Buddha walk into
those who trust should only trust in a law alone. So Abraham, verse 12,
since a law put
under law is the only one
in whom we can trust not to break his promises. He is the only one whom we should put our full trust in.
Although it is natural for us, to trust those around us, but that trust should be relative trust and not full trust.
Relative meaning, we recognize that you we recognize human limitations
and destiny can intervene at any time. Furthermore, if we keep our trust in others relative, we escaped the impact of inevitable devastating disappointments. It enables us to take broken trusts in our stride. Thus full trust should be reserved for Allah alone, as only
in only him
Can we be assured
our trust will never be broken. By law IE failure to work a little more we know
the true believers should only trust in Allah Sora Toba verse 51.
In order to further strengthen this concept of reserving our full trust, for Allah alone,
Allah made it a condition of faith. The true believers will only trust completely and unreservedly in Allah. It is a sign of true faith. It is the essence of the sixth pillar of faith, belief in the good and evil of a laws other.
Moving on now to the fourth and last principle
of event baton with regards to
applying last names.
The fourth is that we have fear where there is a warning.
The Divine Name I'll hide contains the warning that just as a law gave us life can take it away.
You're here you'll meet
allies drawn our attention to this fact in over 50 different places and look
for a very good reason.
The remembrance of death.
Death is an inescapable reality which every human being must face must face not
by an Akuma remote. Am I enough? No, we must walk in.
I have decreed death among you, and nothing could stop me.
So I'd walk out with 60
people would rather not talk about it, except when somebody actually dies. However, it should be remembered often, which is why the prophet SAW the solemn advisor strongly to reflect on death regularly. He called it the pleasure destroyer.
I will rarely reported that the past on solemn said, x earu. vichara has a mill that
actually drew vichara has the mill levy that, remember often the destroyer of pleasures,
which is death.
When we remember death,
we remember and realize that this life is temporary. And time is running out.
If we do it often it will change our outlook on life. And it will cause us to look at life more seriously.
And this world and its pleasures will become less significant.
broadside sanlam instructed us to make a short prayer prior to going to sleep
which most of us neglect
going to sleep at night.
But it contains that final death reminder.
For each and every night, are they for even Alia mom,
related that the prophet SAW Selim intend whenever he intended to sleep, he would say prior to sleep
this make Allahumma Muto
in your name, Allah, I die and I come back to life. Each time we close our eyes to go to sleep. We have no certainty that we'll ever open them again this life.
It is estimated that one in four people die from heart disease, but one in eight people die in their sleep
is a lot more common than we think.
Allah we have to offer amphis PNM out here Well, let's see lambda moot. Fie manana.
Allah takes the souls at the time of death and those who have not died in their sleep.
When we sleep, our consciousness fades, and we're no longer in charge of ourselves. Our bodily functions are maintained, but our consciousness operates on a different level. The soul enters in a different alternate state.
Well, one lady at our fakuma belay
and it is he who takes your souls at night in sleep sorella number 16. Every time we go to sleep, we experience a form of death. I reminded that one day it will be the real thing. And we will not return to this world.
Abu hanifa narrated that on one occasion the Messenger of Allah was on a journey during which they slept, until the sun arose. He said to them,
indeed you are all dead. And Allah returned your souls to you.
So whoever sleeps and misses a prayer, let him offer it when he awakes. And whoever forgets a prayer let him operate, when he remembers.
also helps to soften the heart. It is narrated that a woman complained to Ayesha of the hardness in her heart. I said to her, remember death often, for that will soften your heart. So she did that.
And her heart was softened. is narrated by quote to be in
according to be also related, the scholars said, Remember, remembering death deters one from sin.
It softens the heart, which is hard and stops one from being over delighted with this world
and makes disasters appear bearable.
May Allah give us that consciousness
to be aware of death?
we'll close our session now, calling on Allah using these names or using this name.
We know that you are the one who is everlasting and perfect
Bless us with reliance on you.
Make us realize your perfection of life. And so all of your attributes and guide us to live by them.
Make our life a source of good and give us a good end to our lives inspire us to turn to you only
and grant us eternal life in the guidance of Janet and fear doubts.
Barack illogical. So I know a
lot of robotic cat
will now proceed to
of our session, which is
none other. And
our questions and answers
On average, few today
started a bit late. We're going to be running into mother here.
So let's take a few questions.
Faisal Ali, who asks, Can we pray behind a breakaway? Or a Sufi imaam?
Yes, you can.
They may have distortions in their beliefs
regarding a lot, etc. But
that's for a lot to judge them.
They're still considered to be Muslims. They don't declare them as non Muslims. There are Muslims who have
deviated in their understanding and practice of Islam. We pray for them. ask Allah to guide them back to the Quran and Sunnah and Serato study
was that mill Achmad, but I should mention that
of course, if you have other masjids where the Imams from the Quran and Sunnah then of course pray there instead. Because in the other Masjid, you'll hear after the Salah is over, they're gonna be maybe calling on Abdulkadir or calling on whoever, you know, there'll be other things going on. So of course, you choose the masjid which is closest to the Quran and Sunnah and you pray there comfortably. Muslim milkmaid asks us to do Sunnah gospel without Voodoo afterwards, then I would pray, not knowing it nullifies prayer.
I did this for one year. I made up today's door prayer after us. So do I need to make up more?
made so now listen without Voodoo. Afterwards well, so now Vasu is sufficient.
you actually begin with Voodoo.
That is the full muscle
You have the general muscle, where water just comes down over your whole body.
Of course, you should have the intention.
But as soon as possible which is done for Genova
is to complete to cancel,
you make will do first you wash your private parts, then you make wudu.
Now, having washed your private parts and made will do,
you then follow it by having water, the general muscle water, come over
right side, left side, back front, feet, etc.
That's good. You're good to go.
That is also for Java,
and coming off the fast coming off periods, whatever.
So the other part which you're asking about making up? I mean,
I mean, unless you're doing what you're calling services some other way.
Where you're not washing your feet maybe or something. I don't know. I mean, then of course, you've got other issues.
Okay, from our instagrammers.
What do we have? How to keep a relationship? Until nica?
How to keep a relationship halaal Auntie nigga,
we do so by avoiding haraam until nikka.
when the asks, Is it so challenging for righteous Muslims
to marry today? at any age?
I guess she meant to say, why is it so challenging for righteous woman to marry today?
at any age?
Well, we can put it this way.
Most of the men out there
are not righteous.
So a righteous woman, knowing that she has to choose a righteous man, she has a very limited scope from which to choose
the woman who is not particularly righteous, whatever, you know, maybe she's namazi she prays or whatever, but she's not into the deal.
She has the wide options. There no issues for her. She's not thinking I have to marry a righteous man.
So she can marry anybody.
So she has the big, but once you choose the righteous way, then obviously, your options are going to be less than those who don't choose that way.
What is going on with views on marriage?
You tell me.
I can't speak about it, without knowing what you mean by views on marriage. Because of course, there are many, many different views on marriage.
Trying to figure out why a large number of people are satisfied with the harem lifestyle because it's fun.
There seems more enjoyable,
you know, you are free to do whatever you want to do.
So that lifestyle appeals to the nafs to our desires to our wants.
the majority are going to go down that road. Again, it's the minority that are going to choose the road, which is
the halali lifestyle, though in reality, the halaal is far greater than the
halaal options are far more than Haram, just like Adam in the garden. All the trees were hollow. Only one tree was hot up. But Satan has beautified that one tree, join it into a Christmas tree with
balls hanging from it colored, sparkling and all these other things very beautiful. Like the tree you just see, you know, in the forest. So it becomes desirable
from Instagram students, if a man takes a second woman, wife, yeah second wife, but this affects his first wife married to the man the the second Why?
he shouldn't leave the second wife if he's married her. This is what Islam permits him to do.
In many cases, the first wife will say, leave me, I want out. I want to get out of this. I don't want to be a second wife. Even though she's the first wife.
You have to decide technically Islam does not safe we won't do that.
But in some cases, maybe she's the mother of
a number of children of yours. And, you know, you fear that her leaving will create so much havoc and problems for your children and for you to look after your children etc. that you decide to leave the second way to preserve your family with your first wife.
this is a choice you can make. But of course it's not that fair to the second wife. Meaning that you should really think it out before you marry the second wife. Am I ready to lose my first wife
if you're not ready to lose your first wife then don't marry the second
as simple as that.
from Sarah B what is the best way for two people to get to know each other for marriage? In the UK it's become normal to talk over the phone as well as having meetings with a Willie
what is correct Of course meetings with the well he is best talking over the phone with the permission of Diwali or in the presence of the Diwali or whatever it's also permissible. Okay.
From our Instagram students
shaping eyebrows allowed in Islam shaving eyebrows as
well shaping eyebrows
which means shaving or plucking removing years that are there that is not true.
if you trim the eyebrows you know maybe your eyebrows are very bushy. You know you can hardly see okay, trim you're allowed to trim it's permissible. What is not allowed is to block
or anything which produces the same effect as plucking
yes mean wise asks
besides the Sunnah Salah of the five daily prayers, is there a Sunnah Salah
Prophet, never or seldom failed to do daily
dadgad he did
doesn't complete the game.
Marriage, the promise is allowed said is
completes half of the religion. So fear Allah in the remaining half.
And it completes half of the religion in the sense that and it's not obligatory,
but it's highly recommended.
It completes off the religion in the sense that if you marry a religious wife or a religious husband
that wife or husband will help you to practice your deed.
When you're on your own. There are so many other forces and issues around you, etc. You can become Slack, negligent, drop off
different aspects of your religion, abandon this or that.
But with a religious wife or husband, they will be there to remind you, let's do this. Let's fast.
Twice a week. Let's do this unless let's do let's do they'll be there to remind us. So this is the way in which they become like half because it makes it easier for us to stay on Serato stopping straight path
If in countries where even humans are suffering, and don't have anything to eat, to control animal population, and to end their suffering, is it okay to neuter? Or spay them?
In countries where even humans are suffering, and don't have anything to eat,
to control the animal population and to end their suffering?
Is it okay to neuter or spay them?
Well neutering or spaying
animals is permissible.
But I don't really understand the relationship between that and people are having anything to eat, when, unless you're thinking that they will eat
the cats and the dogs that some societies they do that.
So by neutering and spaying then you're reducing the numbers that are available with tweet
from Instagram students is long before night.
Love before marriage.
Is it haram? No.
And there is this disdain, dislike for what are called love marriages, where
the man loves the woman or the woman loves the man, before they got married.
I'm not talking about loving, meaning making love
talking about loving meaning. They saw the person they were attracted to them, they felt they wanted to marry them. That way. There was love in their hearts part of the process and I'm told the components go look at the woman you're gonna marry their Medina, you know, it's better to put love in your heart. And
the women in Medina, many of them have something in their eyes,
some kind of defect or whatever.
So know that that's what you're married.
there is no harm in marrying a person who you love. In fact, it's better for the relationship. But do you have to love somebody before mine them No.
the fact that you marry
without having met the person enough or whatever, to fall in love with them or to love them, whatever. It doesn't affect the
chances of marriages succeeding etc. They've done experiments already in the West and people, you know,
got married without having ever met the person before and all this and the percentages of them. Success, their marriages being successful was the same as was similar, if not more than those who had met and
In love with etc before marriage.
How much Islamic knowledge should they claim and learn? There is no limit.
La man, a general person should learn as much as he or she can. They should keep learning until they put in the grave.
Because the knowledge that's there is an ocean.
The more that one learns one understands, the better one can practice the deed. So we shouldn't have any hesitations or reservations about learning more.
If we travel more than 60 miles in a day, can we cut our prayers.
That's the four,
four unit prayers to two.
That's only four unit prayers to three unit prayers. There's no cutting,
shortening, there's no shortening on the two unit prayers. So as only the word assar and Asia, that can be reduced to as a drop in
the issue of distance. Actually, there's no evidence to establish distance. The correct opinion,
in my view, is the opinion held by the scholars who say that once you have become a traveler, which is when you leave the boundaries of your city,
you can start writing
once you've become a traveler, because this shortening is for travelers, so once you leave your boundaries with the intention of travel
with the intention of travel, because if you were just hunting, and in the course of hunting, you left the boundaries of your city that doesn't make your job. You know, not the intention.
Instagram, but my coworker comes back after vacation and as
she is, if you missed her, and you didn't watch should I answer be honest and not live but hurt her feelings? Or say yes, I'm glad.
The easy thing is to say yes.
That's simple. your intention is not to deceive, hurt, or whatever.
harm the person.
So, for you to tell your coworker if they ask you, did you miss them? Say yes.
It's okay. Java
or if you can put it in some other way
using different wording
that's maybe more accurate then that's fine also face a lolly boom
can we call scholars what criterion should a person fulfill? So we can call him or her to scholar
general the general definition
which I heard when I was studying in Medina
which I think is excellent.
Is that the scholar
whose knowledge of the deen is greater
than his ignorance
one who has knowledge of the deen and this refers now to the major areas of religion
Sierra biography of the prophets and
the related fields. So his or her knowledge of those individual fields is great
Then their ignorance.
If there are more ignorant than they were knowledgeable, then they should be studied under the scholar to bring their level up.
of course, in time people have created other criteria
which maybe goes to extremes
in the past and in much of the world when somebody goes to studies in Medina, or Al Azhar, you know, or any other known Islamic
institution, when they come back, there is fine.
But there was a period of time in the 90s and the early 20s 20 2020 21/21 century
when people started to question
those who graduated from Medina, or other universities, they're not real scholars.
No, they're just, they're just students, not scholars.
Who are you? They've gone and studied six years, two years, our big four years
in the degree program,
and you are now who have studied nothing
from no one
are going to now say, Oh, so and so I'm not a scholar.
No, no. This is ignorance. This is the height of ignorance.
Allah said first victory in quantum Latta Alamo. As those know, if you don't know.
Those who know are the early moon.
If you don't know you have to ask them.
So they relative to you, our scholars,
they may not consider themselves scholars relative to their teachers.
And the teachers may not consider themselves scholars relative to their teachers, and so on and so forth. But we are in reality, those whose knowledge of the various areas of Islamic sciences and knowledge is greater than their ignorance. They are SCOTUS meaning they are capable of teaching.
And the browser Sallam
said that the world is cursed, except for
teachers and students. So either you're a teacher, or you're a student, let the teacher is the scholar
can you do at the end the puzzle?
Yes, you can do at the end of the show. But the way of the prophets Allah wants to do will do first.
When you're gonna go do it well, so they do we'll do first. That's making sure that the water gets to the most critical areas. If the gospel is from Geneva, you have to wash your private parts before you start the whistle. I started the Voodoo so you know it's wash private parts will do. Also.
Shireen asks, Can other be changed by the app? Yes. I'm sorry Sallam said that. The only thing that could change. Other is to
know there's a whole bunch of questions around that one.
I won't enter into it.
As still got a bunch of questions here to be answered.
You can you can ask the next part
of that question.
Tomorrow, or Yeah.
I've given the signal
that we should end the questions now.
There's a bunch of them.
Let me just see if I can do it quickly just give short answers, very short answers out of or
out of Azim. Choudhry is a sequence of Voodoo. The sequences that maintain order forgetfulness is Voodoo valid, yes.
His heart was Tommy, what is the meaning of color and color?

Yeah, basically the same
desire is taken also in the nude state allowed.
How else do you take also,
people who have special muscle garments, you know, where, where you have to sort of like a T shirt or long t shirt or something like this where you make your poster that way. This is not from the dean, this is something people made up, you know,
taking puzzle in the nude state is the norm.
Why does even with a mean consider the impermissible to call disbelievers, our brothers in humanity?

RF RF as in

Muhammad was that care Swati a group of non Muslim people force a Muslim to say or speak wrong and vulgar words for towards the law. What that should that must in due
course mean they're going to beat him up or kill him or whatever. He says it as a matter of NASA did. He was tortured and he said things against puff Mama's Arsalan
and the process alum Okay, that told him if they do it, again, just say what you had to said. That's on the basis that the Eman hadn't changed. You know, they still believed in a lie, etc. But they were forced externally to say that that's the last of my questions from Instagram. I'm interested in boxing. Can you strike one in the face for training
without the intention of hurting them? Well, it's best you know, to wear
head guards to avoid hitting people in the face,
as opposed to a salon forbid, hitting even a dog in his face.
