This is our 48th session.
And we're looking at name number 68 which is I'll pay you the Sustainer the self subsisting
the Divine Name of biome is mentioned only three places in the Koran.
Among them planeten Voodoo will hide
are the harbor man, Hamel Azuma
and all faces will be humbled before the EverLiving the ever watchful
those burdened with evil deeds will despair
in terms of its meaning linguistically the divine name comes from the trilateral route cough. Wow, meme.
Dr. Moon, and Apollo moon are its verbal nouns, that has six primary meanings, the first of which is to stand or to stand up.
And it also means to awaken.
The second meaning is to reach the middle of something.
The third meaning is to take responsibility for something and the fourth is to begin to do something. The fifth meaning is to continue doing something and the sixth meaning is to straighten something or to correct something
by you is the present participle in the foul, intensive form pattern of the standard present participle
pa and according to the file pattern,
this route appears a staggering 660 times in the Quran. In 22, different forms. Some examples of these forms can be seen in amu, they stand a p mu, establish estacado they remain firm, I will Poma the people, I will tiama. The resurrection
relative to Allah, I will call you means that a lie is the one who stands by himself and who sustains and protects all his creatures. Allah does not need any of his creatures, though they all need him.
Okay, you also means the one who does not sleep. Although all his creatures sleep. This implies the complete denial of our laws likeness, to his creation.
In all three places in the Quran, that this Divine Name is mentioned. Allah always combines it with his other beautiful name and height, which we took previously, the EverLiving the Divine Name, Al Haj focuses on the attribute of everlasting life, while kaiyuan stresses the attribute on self existing life
is the one who is established on his own, and is the foundation upon which all things exists. He is the one who sustains and manages the complete creation and at the same time, he is without any need of any type of assistance himself.
Moving on to its application,
according to Evan, but Paul's four principles,
to adopt where applicable.
Demand main two attributes connected to the Divine Name or are you is complete independence of creation,
the total lack of need and being a source of sustenance for the creation.
Consequently, like the Divine Name of Hi, this Divine Name may not be adopted directly,
is a state of independence and self subsistence, which human beings cannot simply
hope to possibly achieve. However,
on a humanly achievable level, independent living
and not having to depend on others is highly regarded in Islam,
while begging is forbidden, and the taking of loans unnecessarily
is strongly discouraged, especially if the likelihood of not being able to pay them back is high.
Likewise, the Divine Name of chi u means the provider of sustenance, similar to the Divine Name or rezac, both on a level that humans and the jinn cannot even dream of
on a human level, we are expected to provide for and sustain those around us who are in need, if we have the needs, and those who are responsible for
complete independence. So baisa had been muharraq reported that the prophet SAW I was sending them said that begging is only allowed in the following cases.
A man who takes on something or someone's responsibility
is allowed to beg until he raises the necessary amount.
One whose wealth is lost in a calamity may beg until he has regained his footing.
And one who is poverty stricken, is allowed to beg until he reestablishes himself on condition that three intelligent people from his tribe bear witness that he is poverty stricken.
The problems are solved and then said,
begging on the other than these three conditions or probation is haram. Forbidden and the consumption of
this provides the foundation of banning begging in society, as it is the duty of the society to look after its members who are unable to look after themselves.
There is a tendency for certain elements in society to gravitate towards begging, as it is easy money.
I recall seeing veterans in Riyadh driving in off the desert, into the suburbs for Salatin fudger in pickup trucks loaded with women in the cop, and dropping them off one at a time at various masjids in the area today and collecting them in the night after Asia everyday.
Muslims are the most generous people in the world, as is confirmed by global data and statistics done in the UK and by the UN
council consequently, especially after Salah, they would happily give away whatever change they had in their pockets. However, I still used to wonder why the Saudis who have
who would have their women begging daily
when they have the largest oil fields in the world.
But one day when I stopped and made a rough calculation
of what's happening.
It finally made sense.
If the Bedouin dropped off 10 women attend masters, right? It brings them in on this pickup. And each collected $25 after each prayer five times daily prayer, the Bedouin was earning $37,500 per month,
which is about $450,000 per year. So behind Allah. Over the years, this became such a widespread phenomenon in Saudi that the government had to strictly ban them across the country.
Also, I noticed during Hajj, that there were a large number of disabled people in Makkah, having to beg
throughout the hatch. They had every possible disability, one could manage, imagine, and they were sitting in wheelchairs, some were sitting on the ground. But they they basically created a gauntlet there would be on either side. And you have to walk down the middle and see them on either side, you know, with all these incredible looking hideous looking, you know, deformities.
So people walk into the hot arm they had to go walk this gauntlet, and those going to the Mirage and Mina, for the stoning. They also had to walk through this gauntlet. Later I was told that many if not most, were brought in by others from Egypt, Syria and other countries where they had deliberately had their limbs broken and disfigured specifically for begging during Hajj while the other Billa now law protect us from that and like them
Bedouins of Riyadh, they were making millions from unsuspecting judge pilgrims for many years. Eventually the government banned most of them. Also, I first made Hajj in 1975. I made Hajj a number of times since that and I do remember seeing the same cripples in the same places each time I went trash, and I wondered
it had become a lucrative business over the years.
On the other hand,
what we have
is the province Outside Lands recommendation
in order to further discourage begging the province Our solemn praised business did Yarra and work with one's own hats. I will Buddha even AR related that the processor and said of the Lucas B. Baron mob roar. Well, I'm alone Roger Lee Beardy.
The best earnings are from a blessed sale and the product of a man's own hat.
This statement was the promise our salons response to Abu bernardus question regarding the best means of earning a living. It demonstrates the concern which the companions had about doing what was considered islamically the best in order to reap the maximum benefit possible from their daily activities. They understood well that Islam offered direction in all walks of life. And thus they avail themselves of all opportunities to update obtain divine guidance from the Prophet somebody will sell them.
The type of sale referred to here is the blessed sale and what is a blessing it is one in which two basic conditions are met. One that it is free from deception or cheating. And two that the goods and means of exchange are halab
such as sale would earn a loss blessing and be recorded as a righteous deed for those taking part. And that's important terms of business because Thomas Solomon said that to john Romita, Jr. The most corrupt of people are the traders, the business people in the marketplace, etc. No, but this is their way out of not being in that category.
Stress has been placed on a righteous sale, because of the many temptations enticing businessmen to cheat their customers and thereby unfairly increase their profits.
deception is common.
In order to help promote honesty in the marketplace. Islamic law has strictly prohibited certain types of sales. Based on divine revelation the process Allah has forbidden any business transaction in which deception is involved. For example, abou error narrated the Prophet Solomon said, Do not leave the sheep you're selling on milked for a long time prior to the sale.
For whoever buys such an animal has the option of returning it after milking it. Along with two handfuls of dates, or keeping it
a sheep left on mill will naturally have large others and appear exceptionally productive to the buyer.
Consequently, the buyer has been given an option after taking it home and milking it and testing its productivity up to three days
whether to keep the sheep or return it. However, in order to protect the seller, from people abusing this right, by buying different people's sheep milking them and returning them. The buyer has been required to return along with it a quantity of dates of wheat equivalent in value approximately to the milk. according to Islamic law. If there are faults in the goods, the seller should inform the buyer process lm was quoted by Hakeem even had his arm as saying the seller and buyer have the right to keep or return the goods as long as they have not parted or
Until they part
and if both parties spoke the truth and describe the defects and qualities of their goods, then they will be blessed in their transaction.
But if they told lies or hidden things, then the blessing of the transaction will be lost.
The promises are Selamat said and rashanna felice, Amina, whoever cheats us is not a true Muslim, none of us. To further emphasize this principle of honesty in business dealings, Allah revealed a verse of the Quran condemning the false use of use of oaths in business transactions. Mr. Mubarak collected a narration from Abdullah bin Abu alpha, in which he said a man displayed some goods in the market and swore by law, that he had been offered a prize for it, which was not offered in order to cheat one of the Muslims.
It was on that occasion that the verse the Quranic verse, was revealed, which a lot said in Aladdin estar una via the lie why Manny him, feminine vallila hula ekala Holla Holla Whoa, Phil. Era. Indeed, those who sell the faith they owe to Allah and their own solemn oath, for a small price will have no portion and thereafter psoralen Ron, verse 77.
The problem is Allah Himself further disapproved of such oaths by traders saying the oath by the seller may persuade the buyer to purchase the goods, but it will deprive the sale of a loss blessing.
Although much of marketing is based on deception,
it is harmful to society as a whole, and islamically it is prohibited in all its forms as mentioned previously. However, for those studying business in universities, where marketing is taught, the professor's usually praise the best salesman as being the one able to sell sand to a desert Arab, a Bedouin living in the middle of sand, or ice to an Eskimo in his igloo, living in ice. To make the sale of sand to someone living in sand, or ice to someone living in ice, they must be deceived.
The sale of an item, who is used is forbidden in Islam is also prohibited in order to prevent the spread of its harm.
Because things of no value will not be popular in the market, its availability will naturally be reduced. Consequently, the prohibition of sale also reduces the temptation for its usage.
Jabir ibn Abdullah stated that in the year of the conquest of Mecca, you heard the Messenger of Allah say, Allah and His Messenger has made illegal the sale of alcohol that animals things and idols the people asked, but what about the fact of the animals for it is used in greasing boats and hides waterproofing
and people use it as oil for their lanterns.
Process Elon replied, No, it is illegal. There are a lot of curse the Jews, because a lot forbade them from eating fat. So they melted it, sold it and devoured its price.
It was also related by Abu Musab al Ansari that allows messenger forbade selling dogs, the earnings of a prostitute that have a fortune teller.
These are all forbidden businesses from the Islamic perspective.
I recall visiting a Muslim owned clothing shop in Chennai,
two years back in order to buy a shawl, and when I looked into the counter, I looked under the counter. I saw Hindu idols for sale. I was shocked because I had been told that the store belonged to a Muslim. So I asked the owner if he was a Muslim, and to my surprise, he proudly said he was so I asked him about the Hindu idols for sale, and he apologized, but defended its sale on eBay.
He says that the majority of his customers were Hindus. And if they didn't see their idols, they probably wouldn't come to the shop. How the biller
naturally advised him that it was clearly Haram. And he agreed, however, he feared the loss or possible loss of business more.
On another occasion, some years back also, I remember being invited for a meal at a Muslim serial Lankan restaurant in Hong Kong, by its owner.
And notice that she was selling alcohol to her non Muslim Chinese customers to drink with their meals. But I asked the owner, she informed me that as a practicing Muslim, she knew that selling alcohol was horrible. But if she didn't do so, she would lose most if not all of them. And we'd be forced to close a restaurant. Because the number of Muslims that will come into a restaurant, it's not enough by themselves to keep the restaurant growing and flourishing.
I asked her if she had tried disallowing it and experience that previously, she said she hadn't so advised her not to allow it and see what happens. Sure enough, she did. And the customers declined for a little while. Then a number of them came back carrying their own bottles of alcohol and paper bags, which she turned a blind eye to, as it wasn't haram for them. And she wasn't selling it. And in the end, most of them continued to come, because ultimately they loved her Sarah Lankan cooking so much.
physical labor in Islam,
equal in superiority to a righteous sale is the value of honest labor, whether in craft or agriculture,
this aspect of business has been emphasized, because it forms the economic base for society, and its value should not be underestimated, neither by those doing it, or by those for whom it is done.
There has been
a tendency among the more affluent members of society to look down on those who work with that.
Today, they're referred to as blue collar workers wearing uniforms. And I looked at as inferior to the white collar workers who work in offices.
However, Islam honors them, by rating their means of earning
as being living
in the best way. It considers that what is earned from the efforts of others inferior to what is earned by one's own efforts. The satisfaction and feeling of self worth, which one experience from having provided for oneself, and not having to depend on others is worth achieving by all children who are raised without being taught the value of hard work. I seldom able to appreciate wealth, and usually squander and waste what comes their way.
Likewise, a community or country which provides for every desire which citizens will produce a lazy generation design only administrative posts, for which they will likely be unqualified.
Such a society will be obliged depend on large numbers of imported workers, and will be unable to develop itself properly. Similarly, women pampered by maids and servants, doing all the housework, often become obsessed with carefree enjoyment worldly pleasures and neglect their homes and their children. Such developments never tably lead to corruption and the downfall of societies
from homicide Salam was supported by Alma to da club said, No one has eaten a better meal than that which he has earned by working with his own hats, profitable of Allah that used to eat from the earnings of his own labor.
Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim use the example of Prophet David as a proof of the superiority of manual labor, because he chose to eat only from his own earnings. Prophet David was the king of Israel and had no need working, but he chose to do so because it was more preferable to
And most more honorable in the sight of his subjects. In fact,
or the fact that David was a prophet of God and worked with his hands to. To earn a living also indicates that working to earn a living in no way decreases or injures one's trust in a law. Contrary to those mystics, who claim that the complete trust in a law requires that one give up work and depend only on a law by living off handouts and charity, the process further blocked that way of thinking by stating, it is better that one of you cut wood and carried on his back to the market, than to beg someone who may or may not give him.
To trust in God involves striving once utmost with the abilities which Allah has bestowed, while believing that Allah is the provider, and what has been destined for one must come to be.
This concept was highlighted in the province Our solemn statement, if you trust in Allah, as he would be trusted, or should be trusted, he will provide for you the way he provides for the birds will leave their nests in the morning with empty stomachs, and return at the dusk full.
Although this hadith is also used by those who promote begging, it actually does not contain any support for their views. The birds hunt high and low for sustenance, and obtain it as a result of their efforts. They do not worry about whether they will find food or not strive their utmost and Allah rewards them with daily sustenance.
The Prophet Solomon said, no talamona marfil must allottee
my mission I had done it, I hadn't Yes, Lucia.
If you knew the consequences of begging, no one would go to anyone else and ask him for anything.
Furthermore, the prophets of Salaam
offered a guaranteed place in paradise for anyone who would not ask anyone for anything.
busara a Ferrari was also promised paradise for a commitment to placing complete trust in a lot of busara said, one day allows messenger called me and said, will you make a pledge for paradise? I replied, Yes.
I stretched out my hand and he placed a condition on me, as he took my hat saying
that you will not ask anyone anything. I said yes. And he added, even if your whip falls, you must dismount and pick it up yourself.
Likewise, so ban go to the Messenger of Allah saying on another occasion, we will guarantee for me that he will not ask anyone for anything, and I will guarantee for him paradise bobine said I will and after that he never asked anyone for anything.
The name I'll pay you also focuses on providing sustenance
and the responsibility to look after one's family, which may be neglected due to familiarity is so important that so been quoted.
Prophet Muhammad Salah, saying of the dinar near dinar rune, Yun fipple, who Raja Lu Allah era.
The best of dinars is the dinar which a man spends on his family.
And this hadith the prophet SAW Selim informs his followers of their primary responsibility to their families. On another occasion, which I've mentioned more than once, he stated all of you are like shepherds, and each one of you is responsible for his flock. The leader is like a shepherd and he's responsible for his flock. The man is like the shepherd among his family. He is responsible for a slump. So Islam encourages its followers to spend their wealth and to avoid hoarding because money taken out of circulation prohibits a segment of the society.
performance benefits. As my reported that the prophet SAW said I'd said, spin and do not keep count. Let's the lock keep count against you.
And do not hoard less the law withhold from you and only spend what you are able.
Islam wealth is not considered to be the absolute property of human beings to do with as they please, as
capitalism teaches, but a trust, temporarily loaned to them by God, for the benefit of the individuals and the society. What they use constructively, they are rewarded for what they waste, they are punished for the wealth of society is basically a product of collective human toil and sweat. For example, in the case of gold jewelry, the goal ought to be extracted from the earth transported and refined by human labor, and surely it be worked by skilled craftsmen.
It is human effort, which gives value to most items.
Consequently, the principle of the cow was substitute was instituted to help ensure the continual circulation of wealth. surplus wealth, which is hoarded or saved will gradually be eaten up by zeca. While wealth which is kept in circulation through investment or purchase, is generally exempt exempted from Zakah.
However, expenditure should begin with those who are once primary responsibility. Does the prophet SAW Selim was quoted by Abu mama as saying, All son of Adam, to spend your surplus wealth is better than to hoard it. So you will not be accused of miserliness. But begin with those in your own family.
spending on the family has even been given precedence over spending for jihad, in order to prevent harm to the family by those who endure enthusiasm, neglect, and eventually harmed their families. The case of aboubaker, who on one occasion gave away all of his wealth when support was needed for Jad is often held up as the best example by those who seek to motivate others to sacrifice for jihad, or other critical circumstances or other critical circumstances of financial need. For example, natural calamities like tsunamis, volcanoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.
Oh my, God said, the Messenger of Allah commanded us to give in charity, at a time when I had some wealth. So I said to myself, today, I will surpass Abu Bakar. I brought half of my wealth. And a large messenger asked me what have you left for your family? I replied, a similar amount. Abu Bakr aboubaker then came with all of his wealth, and the products I sell them asked him, What have you left for your family or abubaker? And he replied, I've left a lot in his messenger for them. I said to myself, I will never beat him at anything.
I have left Allah and His Messenger for that.
That was, those were the words of aboubaker a truly admirable sacrifice. However, Islam considered abubaker is at an exception, allowed by the prophets are seldom at a time of particular need, and not the rule is not for everybody to strive for.
When others tried to do the same, the prophet SAW Selim prevented them and insisted that they spend on their families instead. For example, sorry, I didn't I be what boss. He said in the year of the victory over Mecca. I fell ill and was at the point of death. When the province Arsalan came to visit me I said to him, all messenger of Allah, I have an abundance of wealth, and no one to inherit me except my two daughters. May I bequeath all of my wealth in the way of Allah.
The prophets I seldom replied, No. I require inquired Then have you applied? No. And I asked the third, he said 1/3. But 1/3 is still too much
that you leave your heirs free from what is better than leaving them poor to beg from people
You will be rewarded for everything you spend seeking a lot of pleasure, even the morsel of food you place in your wife's mouth.
As a point of note, on the basis of this statement, Muslims are allowed to will a maximum of 1/3 of the wealth to those who would not normally inherit from them.
Those who will inherit are excluded by Abu Mama's statement. In the air of the farewell pilgrimage I heard a lot of messages say in his sermon, certainly Allah has given everyone possessing a right to inheritance his right. So there should be no request for an air.
non Muslims are excluded by the authentic hadith reported by Osama bin Zayed. No, she quoted the process. Alana saying no Muslim should inherit from a disbeliever nor a Muslim. No, I just believe we're from a Muslim. The world was sia is not considered a part of the inheritance, the fluoride according to Islamic law, and as such is not included in the previously mentioned projection. So
up to 1/3 of one's inheritance can be left to none. It's possible
it's up to the person who is leaving the wealth
cannot exceed 1/3.
But it can that 1/3 can include other people who would not normally inherit from them.
Meaning they are not among the inheritors who are already defined by the Quran and Sunnah.
In terms of independence, even in difficult circumstances, Muslims,
Muslims should strive their best to look after their own needs, if they're able, for taking help from others should only be a very last resort. Consider the situation when Mecca and Muslims first emigrated to Medina, virtually empty handed, with only the clothes on their backs. There the prophet SAW some of them created individual bonds of brotherhood between the answer and the mahadji rune
among them, he made up the rock man even from Makkah inside even rabbir from Medina brothers, once the official bonding was complete side told of the rough man now
I am 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 her to you and marriage when her waiting period are in the end.
However I'm doing man said there's no need to do that. Is there a marketplace in Medina where businesses good, so I replied,
pull up. A new market of the rock man went there daily and began trading. After some time I passed, he joined the province of Silent Circle with some traces of perfume on himself. So the broadside someone asked him if he had gotten married recently. And he replied that he had married a woman from the answer.
He could have taken sides offer, which would have been much easier, but he preferred to make his own efforts to look after himself. And that is the Islamic way.
In terms of looking after others,
the Divine Name okay you also refers, as I said in the beginning to laws being the Sustainer of his creation. We can apply this name by seeking to sustain some of the most vulnerable members of our communities. The most obvious group in our community are the orphans.
Those whose fathers have died. Consequently, Allah urged the believers to financially take care of their orphans were found everywhere on Earth.
Well, I cannot be Roman, I'm gonna be liable Yeoman.
Well, Mullah Gotti well kitabi will not be in but I tell my Allah Allah who will be here though will corba Walia Tama
but true righteousness is in one who believes in a lot
the last day, the angels the book and the profits and give his wealth in spite of love for it to his relatives, and the orphans, to our Baqarah verse 177
Law stressed its importance by making it a matter of real belief in the Pillars of Islam.
If we truly believe in Allah, because he has commanded us, the day of judgment,
will be in need of help on that day in which will be accountable, when every good deed will matter
in the angels, because they are recording our good deeds and bad deeds. So we're going to need as many good deeds as possible to outweigh our bad deeds in the scriptures. Because the blessing of a book of guidance preserved as no other scripture has been preserved
a further blessing and mercy from Allah, whose way has been preserved for us the way no other previous prophets way was preserved. If we believe all of that, we must and will respond to a last call.
And this verse immediately after stating the basic beliefs required of all Muslims, Allah Lords the spending of wealth for his sake, as a righteous quality. He then specifically mentions family and orphans as people most deserving of our wealth.
The prophet SAW Salem felt special care for the orphans, as his own father had died before his birth, and his mother died in his early childhood. Thus, it is not surprising to find a number of statements in the Sunnah, urging Muslims to take care of their arguments. For example, the process was reported to have said, the one who cares for an orphan and myself will be together in paradise like this.
And he held up his two fingers to illustrate.
This was not an empty promise, this was the promise of a special closeness to the Messenger of Allah engender.
The promise was urged and has urged Muslims over the past 1400 years to go out of their way to help the orphans in our societies.
They are truly the most vulnerable. They are unable to do anything for themselves.
They are weak physically
and psychologically, if we don't make a special effort to help them, our societies are doomed.
A blessed home. We all want our homes to be blessed by law, as that is one in which we will have peace of mind and soul. To achieve that the Messenger of Allah said the best house among the Muslims is the house in which orphans are well treated. And the worst house among Muslims is the house in which orphans are emptied.
This statement promises great blessings to the home for treating orphans well, and puts a curse on homes in which orphans are maltreated.
if we want our wealth to be blessed and beneficial, rather than cursed and useless, and promise Our solemn advice the same, Blessed is the wealth of the Muslim from which he gives to the poor, the orphan and the wayfare.
paradise promised, it is a dream we all have to be among the promised paradise. Those promise paradise in this life.
It is available in the promise our salons offer whoever takes an orphan from among Muslims in order to raise him, Feed him and give him drink. Allah will admit into paradise without a doubt, unless he has done a sin for which he is not forgiving.
A soft heart.
From time to time we all feel the hardening of arts and long for tears for the sake of Allah and the softening of our hearts to the message of Islam. The words of Allah and the guidance of His Messenger. The prophet SAW Selim addressed this need saying if you want to soften your heart
if you want to soften your heart, then feed the poor and pat the head of the orphan.
Moving on to point number two,
where we confirm what is unique and inapplicable.
Sophie, and she claims that they're saying Sunday moms can benefit
the world, similar to a law
I'll call you as sustainers of creation.
The balance of life is incomplete without the MA. Shiites claim that from the time of the first prophet either
there has been a continuous succession of Imams, at no time has a law left the earth without any man with the guide and proof paja of Allah. That's the fifth Imam Mohammed Al Barker is reported by the Shiites as having said, By law, since the death of Adam, a law has not left the earth without an Imam, on its on it. guiding the people to a law is the proof of a lot of servants and the earth will not remain without the proof of Allah to his servants. It will crumble disappear. The 60 man, Joshua Assad, it was also quoted to have said, according to Shiite sources,
were there to remain on the earth, only two men, one of them would be the proof of a lot.
And they were so caffee of Delaney.
He relates also that the world is in need of the moms to always be present. Women's chin here are some speeches concerning that subject.
One came through Abu Hamza commonly quotes from Imam Jafar Assad.
Who said I asked Abu Abdullah that's Jaffa Assad. Can the earth remain without any Imam? He replied, If the earth was for a while without any mom, it would cleave and fall apart.
And another narration through our Jaffer
was quoted as saying, if the mom was lifted from the earth for an hour, the Earth would wave with its inhabitants like the rising waves on the ocean.
Each of the travi moms according to the F na Sharia, the twelver sect of Shiites as an inherent divine part within him
as they were made from the light of Allah.
So as a group, the Imams are believed to direct the destinies of the world. They are fought to preserve the world and guidance and their intercession is indispensable. Prayers with special formulas are reserved for that Sunday is sacred for prayers to Ali and Fatima
and the second hour of each day, sacred for Alaska, and the third hour for Al Hussein and the fourth Rosanna, lava Dean, etc.
In the case of the Sophie's and the abdol.
There is a Sufi doctrine, which goes back to the ninth century see
300 years after the time of the prophet SAW,
that the cosmic order is preserved by a fixed number of saints the cosmic order, the whole of the universe is staying together operational
due to the presence of a fixed number of saints,
in such a way that when a holy man among them dies, his place is immediately filled by a substitute called Buddle Arab, according to her jewelry, on of the writers on classical Sufism, there are 40 of doubt occupying the fourth grade, being subordinate to seven abrar for altered and three nakaba.
That's found out when cash cash al McAdoo This is where
some writers explained battle
One who when he departs from a place is the same as this ability when he departs from a place, he has the power to leave his double behind is why they claim that the saintly people who have reached the kotoba or whatever top spots, they can be in multiple locations at the same time.
At the bar, he wrote, I saw St. Regis a station where in all the wild animals, insects, the heavens and the stars, the earth and the glow of the entire world gained some sustenance from him.
This is the sustenance of Africa you
heard all of their songs and conversations in a single instant, and he gave each what they needed or Razzaq,
and what was best suited for them, without being distracted by one from another.
Thus, in order to affirm a law's uniqueness with regards to the Divine Name, I'll pay you We must reject the beliefs and stories of the Shiites and hardcore Sophie's who substitute
laws, powers, laws, attributes with their own figures, whether IE moms, or saints, and as such, promote beliefs have shifted.
pillar of Imelda Paul, for application is to have hope, where there is a promise,
a lie is I'll tell you, the Sustainer who will provide sustenance for all his creatures. Therefore, there is absolutely no need to go to the harem in order to fulfill our needs. Allah reiterated this fact in the Quran in a number of places, the most famous of which is well my tequila is Allahu Maharaja, whereas zuku min heights Elia.
Wherever fears Allah,
He will make an escape for him and provide for him from where he would least expect it. Sort of block verse two and three.
This promise of a way out in all difficult circumstances should motivate the believers to stand firm and avoid compromise of the religion because of perceived needs, like buying homes and cars, with interest based loans, mortgages, etc.
Today, this has become so widespread in western countries
to which Muslims have migrated as well as Muslim countries which don't follow Islamic banking and finance principles, which is most
in the case of Muslims who migrated to the west, they usually claim that owning a home is a necessity. The rura and fatwas have been issued based on the legal Maxim
duret to be almohad dire need makes the forbidden permissible.
With these fatwas, they make permissible the buying of homes with mortgages, the purchasing of cars. Similarly, and virtually anything you can argue is a necessity of life, which is fundamentally forbidden.
However, a dire need, according to the Sharia is defined as what will cause the loss of life or limb if not fulfilled.
So, if one had to have an operation is an example to save his or her life and couldn't find the means to pay for it. The community wouldn't come to their aid. Everybody they asked for help, wasn't able. So if one had to have that operation to save his or her life, and couldn't find the means to pay for it, they if they took out a loan an interest to save their lives, that would have been a would be permissible.
This is the
problem. However, the reality is that those so called needs are actually wants which they have elevated up to needs. It is not needed.
dire need for people to own their own homes most people don't.
It is possible to rent throughout one's life. It would be nice to own one's home, but not necessary. Instead, what was supposed to happen is that Muslims as a community would solve such problems by setting up housing cooperatives, where homes are jointly bought by pooling the community's resources. I know of communities in Canada and Trinidad Central America, which successfully set up such cooperatives. The same could also be done for cars. However, the necessary cars on the other hand, turn out to be brand new latest model cars. When people already have cars, or they can purchase used cars, they can afford it. Right? But
they don't want that they want the brand new, shiny.
One you can get.
feel proud of feel great about people will admire you admire your car, etc. so that now becomes a need.
On the other hand, if we realize that only a lot deserves the name, I'll pay you that only he fulfills his conditions of one conditional sustenance, it will be clear to us that our needs should only be taken to him alone. Only he should be fully trusted completely.
The promise of alcohol to sustain us, no matter what should give us the patience to trust him. And trust in Him and be patient. As a law himself said, Yeah, you already know amanu in terms of the law, encircle where you submit apadana con,
or you believe if you help Allah He will help you and make you stand firm.
We help a lot by supporting his religion and we stop and we support his religion by learning it and understanding it and practicing it.
The last pillar of evil batal
is to have fear where there is a warning
there is no direct warning and this Divine Name will pay you but indirectly, it is a warning that a law who never sleeps and is always awake, misses nothing.
No one will get away with anything at all. unless Allah decides to excuse us, or forgive us. Otherwise no acts of injustice will go unnoticed or unpunished. I know acts of justice and goodness will go on reward
for a word injustice to take place on punished, it would mean that the law has oppressed His creatures.
But Allah has already canceled the possibility of him oppressing any of his creatures Israel recorded to have set in a well known Hades country in which problem is our solemn quoted Allah saying, Yeah, anybody in the Haram to Zuma, Allah nasi, JAL to who been a comb Hari Rama, for latos law, mu.
All my servants, I have forbidden oppression for myself, and made it forbidden amongst you. So do not oppress one another.
You went on to say all my servants, all of you are straight, except for those who have guided so seek guidance of me or from me, and I will guide you.
All my servants, all of you are hungry, except for those I have fed. So seek your food from me and I will feed you all my servants all of you are naked, except those who might have closed. So seek your clothing from me and I will close you
all my servants you sin during the day and during the night and I forgive all sins. So seek forgiveness from me and I will forgive you
barakallahu li Khan
will now close by calling on a lie using
this name. Okay you
the prophet SAW sanlam mentioned to Fatima to recite
the following do in the morning and the
Yeah Hi yeah are you iraq matica as studies as lately shut me Kula
wala to kill me Illa enough see talofa time.
Oh every living one. Oh Sustainer of all, by your mercy I call on you to set right all of my affairs Do not place me in charge of my own soul, even for the blinking of an eye.
We should also recite I took corsi each after every prayer and before going to sleep at night, it is the greatest verse of the Quran. The name of Kiu is mentioned in there.
And there are many virtues narrated regarding it.
All Ah, yeah, tell you, we know that you are the one who is self existing and sustaining all bless us with humility and our worship and dealing with others and make us of those who help the needy and strive in the cause of Islam. Yeah, can you protect us from over dependence on others and soften our hearts to help the orphans among us? Yeah, Allah. Grant us patience to wait for your help and to look after our families as they deserve to be looked after. And make us honest in all of our business dealings. yada yada, yada, yada. You
need barakallahu ficam salaam aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.
We will now move to our third section of our session that of the q&a.
Nadira tajuddin. She asked,
when we encourage others to be on the right path, give up her arm and innovations. It's heartbreaking to hear some of them saying Don't be extreme. How to cope with this shift? well consider that when Prophet Muhammad
told the Quraysh
don't worship your idols even though
They said to him, don't be extreme.
You can worship
Allah all by himself and you can worship along with us.
So Allah revealed to the AI well, capital.
our duty is to advise
right at dinner naziha give advice
for the sake of the religion to those around you as to them taking the advice. We can't make people take advice, make them believe or made them give up their beliefs.
Like Rafa did.
Diana Ross demeanor, right? So the law said there is no compulsion in the village you can't force people
to become most
to do what is the right thing, unless you're in a position of power. Adjust where everybody is on the same playing field. You can't force you just advise.
Oh, man, car. Is there a god?
Why God is allowing Iran Shia country to take over the Middle East, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan.
asking the question, is there a god?
that is frustration. Those are words of frustration.
your common sense and intelligence tells you there is a God
if I told you that, this will
Watch just came into being I found it
on the desert.
It came into being by itself the sun was blown and heat of the sun melted things and there was this watch, he would look at me and think, what an idiot.
He's lost his mind.
Well, what about the universe?
no God, no universe
as to what's happening in
the Middle East
with Shiite Iran, other Shiite
portions of Iraq, etc, promoting themselves. What is Iran and Iraq
from the Muslim oma
they're a drop in the bucket.
The vast majority of the Muslim one 190 percent 95% of the most, they're not even 5% of the Muslim oma
believes in Allah, they're praying, etc. The fact that there is a portion which has deviated, gone off track.
This is everywhere.
This isn't everything. So don't blow it out of proportion to the point where you're starting to say, is there a god?
You are insulting yourself and your own intelligence
from Instagram students.
If we make slamming videos by using Cartoon for power, is it right? for
Islamic videos using cartoons? Well, you know, there are rules governing artwork, if it's for children, it's a different situation. But for adults, then, you know, the details of face and things like this should not be their processor that said that the image is the head face. So if it's not there, it's defaced or it's not
there is no harm but it's better to use. Other means you can make cartoons and everything else with other things that don't require
no, imitating human beings or animals.
Mohammed Abu hanifa,
in which surah and verse in the brand is Allah ask us to say, Lama Sunday and I'm humbled
by it personally. Well, I don't know of any that says that. In the long term, I like to use a lunula.
This is the birth that is no indeed a law.
And the angels
on the Prophet.
That's the best.
Shawn Mohammed. Can someone wear clothing
with a logo or symbol on it? For example, Nike, Puma.
Particular I heard Nikes the name of a Greek goddess.
Well, I don't know about that Greek goddess.
It's a startup speed or something like this.
It's better to avoid such logos
where it's written,
especially if it is connected in that way.
Is your natural asks, Can the children abandoned by fathers be treated as orphans as they are very common? And women and children go through lots of pain and hardships?
Children abandoned Yeah. Similar to orphans? No, because
father not there is like a father dead.
And that sense but factually speaking they are not orphans.
As long as the Father remains alive, however, you would be rewarded to look after them and inshallah you have the intention of looking after them as you would have looked after an orphan and Allah gives you the reward accordingly.
As if a Shabnam
asks, What is the difference between a dream and a vision? I heard someone saying I had a vision last night. Well, you know, usually visions happen
in daylight, or you see something,
you know, that's usually that's what's called a vision.
Whereas, where it came in the dream, it's a dream.
Maybe they use the term vision also, to refer to special kinds of dreams. But
normally, we say, add a dream last night.
Unless, you know, you're saying I the vision, meaning Allah came to me in the dream last night, and told me this, that to the other. That's your vision, but believe that if a law came to you, it wasn't the law.
And the provenance
came to you. And you don't know what it looks like. It wasn't profit promise.
consumers were e as an E. Tech beer we normally eat this type beer, following one person after him design evidence for this? No, not really. I mean, if you make it something that everybody has to do, then it becomes a kind of innovation bit. But if you do it, some people do it. You do it sometimes sometimes you don't. And then there is no harm.
Is your natural as can a woman claim help from the government? She can't find a job. husband is not living with her. Her adult children are financially struggling.

When I'm in Abu hanifa, he asked, Can someone listen to the Quran while he or she is taking a bath? undressed? Yes.
Someone takes a bath and just with his or her Salah
be accepted. Yes, taking baths on jest is the norm wearing clothes which are called bathing clothes. Because people are mistakenly thinking that when you take a bath, you should not expose yourself should never be exposed. Well, this is nonsense. It's not a requirement. In fact, it becomes a bit
as the land of punt

from Portland, London. Okay.

Well, that's a question that invites others

Kalyan. sabia asks,
I listened to the radio sometimes just to have time out. I try not to listen to music, which has bad content. Is that permissible?
listening to music, which is of the forbidden type is forbidden.
What happens accidentally, you're not held accountable.
That's the general principle.
And ROI, or as Can you recite surah in different orders in Salah. For example, this last first then I took policy, yes, you can
for you to deliberately read the surah as backwards for example.
You know, you start with
pull out the grabbing NASS and you go to pull out the follow up, and you go to cool hula.
You're doing this deliberately. This is not good stuff.
But if you happen to read
or recite clouds, Robin, NASS
in your first Raka,
then you want to recite another surah, then whatever you recite will be out of water.
They'll be going backwards or whatever. So it doesn't matter that this is not intended.
So no problem.
