study students

00:05:10--> 00:05:12

will now move on to our

00:05:13--> 00:05:14

session.

00:05:16--> 00:05:16

Officially

00:05:28--> 00:05:29

Bismillah

00:05:32--> 00:05:34

00:05:58--> 00:06:02

and then all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.

00:06:07--> 00:06:13

This is session 49 B or Part Two

00:06:14--> 00:06:20

where we'll be looking at the principles of application

00:06:21--> 00:06:30

of the names Ottawa head and I'll add names 69 and 70.

00:06:33--> 00:06:35

Chances are the Quranic location.

00:06:37--> 00:06:42

The name on Wahid is mentioned in some five different places in the Quran.

00:06:44--> 00:06:54

Among them call in nama 1011 Mammon, law him law, and we're headed Taha.

00:06:55--> 00:07:06

say, oh, Mohammed, I am only a warner. There is no god except a law. The one the prevailing surah Assad verse 65.

00:07:09--> 00:07:16

As to the Divine Name Ahad is mentioned only once in the Quran, we all know who Allahu Ahad

00:07:17--> 00:07:20

say he Allah is uniquely one

00:07:22--> 00:07:29

terms of the meaning linguistically a watershed comes from the trial literal route Wow. hat and doubt,

00:07:30--> 00:07:32

and it's a verbal noun Why

00:07:33--> 00:07:39

has four main meanings The first is to be one.

00:07:40--> 00:07:50

The second is to connect and join. The third is to be unique and singular, and the fourth is to be one apart from others.

00:07:51--> 00:07:58

As to the name and Ahad. linguistically, it comes from the same trilateral route as warhead.

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

However, as I mentioned before, some granary grammarians suggested that the wow was transformed into a Hamza.

00:08:10--> 00:08:20

So, the trailer to a route according to them is Hamza ha, and Tao. Hamza, how and

00:08:24--> 00:08:31

it is mentioned some 85 times in the Quran in two derived forms.

00:08:36--> 00:08:50

It is said that Ottawa HUD means that he is unique in his assets in reference to Allah, Allah is unique in his assets and does not have any peer or rival.

00:08:52--> 00:08:54

While I had

00:08:55--> 00:09:00

is that a law is unique in its attributes,

00:09:02--> 00:09:15

so a law head means being one in and of itself. And Ahad means being uniquely one specifically, in his attributes

00:09:16--> 00:09:33

lahab is the one is one of the attributes of Allah which belong uniquely to him alone. Nothing and no one else has any share at all, in his unique ones.

00:09:35--> 00:09:39

In terms of application, according to the four principles have been batam

00:09:41--> 00:09:44

we took in part one,

00:09:46--> 00:09:53

the first two principles principle one and two, principle one being to adopt where applicable.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

Both names and Wahid and Ahad may be adopted and applied in two ways

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

seek ways. The first way is to apply the names

00:10:06--> 00:10:10

by recognizing our own individualism

00:10:11--> 00:10:17

and finding our own unique potential for which Allah created each and every one of us.

00:10:18--> 00:10:35

The second way is to strive to understand the laws unique ones, as embodied in the Islamic Unitarian teachings regarding tower heat, and its practical application in the human life cycle.

00:10:37--> 00:10:56

The first way involved realizing our own uniqueness and the oneness of humankind, no races, only one human race, the oneness of religion, the oneness of God, the oneness of purpose.

00:10:58--> 00:11:07

The second way involved understanding allows oneness as tawheed by understanding and applying the principles of

00:11:13--> 00:11:20

the second principle was to confirm where the names were unique and inapplicable.

00:11:22--> 00:11:45

And the application of the Divine Names Allahu Ahad requires us to confirm a laws unique unity in such a way that nothing of creation can share it. It is a unity which is completely pure and divine, to such a degree, that the creation cannot possibly participate in it in any way.

00:11:47--> 00:12:08

Consequently, any claims by mystics that the creation can become one with the creator are undoubtably open, they're faced shift and must be rejected completely in order to protect a laws unique unity and oneness.

00:12:10--> 00:12:12

Continuing on Now,

00:12:13--> 00:12:19

part two, where we'll be looking at principles three and four.

00:12:21--> 00:12:22

Principle three,

00:12:24--> 00:12:28

to have hope, where there is a promise

00:12:29--> 00:12:51

the Divine Names are washed, and I had do not contain any direct or indirect divine promises other than the fact that whoever recognizes and genuinely accepts to live by us unique Divine unity is guaranteed paradise paralyzed.

00:12:53--> 00:13:08

Such a promise is the greatest of all divine promises. Prophet Muhammad wa sallam made this ultimate promise to his followers saying, Man call Allah Allah in the law.

00:13:11--> 00:13:18

Whoever says there is no god worthy of worship, besides a law will enter Paradise.

00:13:19--> 00:13:32

The prophet SAW Selim did, however, clarify the entrance to paradise may not be immediate. If the person was due to be punished for some of his or her sins.

00:13:33--> 00:13:36

The Promised Land was recorded to upset

00:13:37--> 00:13:44

whoever says La ilaha illa Allah will be benefited at some point in time.

00:13:46--> 00:13:50

That is that will eventually get him or her into paradise.

00:13:51--> 00:13:57

Though he may be he or she may be punished before that for some time.

00:13:59--> 00:14:01

We shouldn't depend on that.

00:14:03--> 00:14:07

Because the punishment is so severe

00:14:08--> 00:14:15

that none of us would want to be punished, or think we could handle being punished for some time.

00:14:17--> 00:14:36

Alhamdulillah such a great reward for such a seemingly simple act. However, the mere utterance of these Arabic words lie in the law will not say when atheist confirmed this believer in God from the hellfire.

00:14:38--> 00:14:57

This prophetic statement and others like it have to be understood in the light of the following statement, which the prophets Allah made. Whoever declares La ilaha illa Allah sincerely from his heart or her heart will be forbidden to the Hellfire

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

without sincerity,

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

See, the declaration becomes meaningless.

00:15:06--> 00:15:07

The prophet SAW

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

said

00:15:11--> 00:15:23

on another occasion, Indeed, Allah has made the Hellfire prohibited for whoever says Laila and Allah, desiring only the pleasure of Allah.

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

That is

00:15:27--> 00:15:32

another expression or another way of expression expressing sincerity.

00:15:33--> 00:15:35

The meaning of the first declaration of faith.

00:15:38--> 00:15:39

Shahada lie in

00:15:44--> 00:15:54

the Shahada. As, as a declaration of faith normally has two parts, Laila Allah, and Muhammad Rasulullah.

00:15:56--> 00:15:57

And

00:15:58--> 00:16:23

we're focusing currently on La, la, la La, because this is the Shahada, which all the prophets thought, the second half will depend vary depending on which Prophet was conveying that basic message. So in the time of Prophet nor

00:16:24--> 00:16:28

the Shahada would have been Lai La la la, nor asuna, la

00:16:29--> 00:16:37

and then the time of Isa, it would have been lilan, Allah Isa, Allah. So

00:16:38--> 00:16:45

in the time of Muhammad SAW Salaam, the last of the prophets, the Shahada became lion and Allah Muhammad was

00:16:46--> 00:16:48

but the first part line and Allah

00:16:52--> 00:16:53

It has

00:16:54--> 00:16:55

two parts to it.

00:16:57--> 00:17:08

La Ilaha there is no God in La la, except a la so there is even duality within the first section.

00:17:10--> 00:17:20

From an Islamic perspective, it means that there is no God or nothing is worthy or deserving of worship besides Allah.

00:17:24--> 00:17:29

That is important to clarify, because the literal meaning there is no God but Allah,

00:17:30--> 00:17:35

would seem to contradict the fact that there are many gods in this world.

00:17:36--> 00:17:37

Hindus

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

have Gods

00:17:41--> 00:17:46

Buddhists have Gods Christians have gods. In fact, everyone has thoughts.

00:17:48--> 00:17:50

So there are many gods besides the law.

00:17:51--> 00:18:14

Consequently, it is not the literal meaning of Laila the law, which is intended here, but the Islamic meaning, that is, though there are many different gods worshipped by human beings. None of these gods deserves that worship, except the one true God, Allah.

00:18:15--> 00:18:20

It affirms the unique oneness of Allah and why Wahid

00:18:24--> 00:18:25

however,

00:18:27--> 00:18:31

the validity of this declaration of faith

00:18:32--> 00:18:37

will depend on other conditions,

00:18:39--> 00:18:41

as we mentioned before about sincerity,

00:18:45--> 00:18:50

I'm going to mention basically eight other conditions,

00:18:51--> 00:19:17

which should be fulfilled in order for this declaration of faith, to be fully acceptable. And it's not to say that everyone will have every condition, perfect, but there needs to be an element of all of the conditions for

00:19:18--> 00:19:31

this declaration of faith to be acceptable to Allah. Because once you take out any of the elements that are dimensioning, then the whole thing crumbled.

00:19:34--> 00:19:37

The first condition is that of knowledge.

00:19:38--> 00:19:53

For the declaration of faith in a lot to be considered valid, it should be based on authentic knowledge. Allah said farlam and no, Eli, no.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

have knowledge that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah.

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

Surah Mohammed verse 19,

00:20:04--> 00:20:14

and the prophet SAW Selim had himself said whoever dies, knowing that none has the right to be worshipped, but Allah will enter Paradise.

00:20:15--> 00:20:17

He added that condition himself

00:20:18--> 00:20:23

confirming the importance of knowledge for the declaration to be valid.

00:20:25--> 00:20:39

Because mere parroting of the phrase lilan the law, and its translation is not sufficient for one to benefit from it. If one didn't understand its basic meaning.

00:20:40--> 00:20:47

However, one who does make the declaration of faith is still considered a Muslim,

00:20:48--> 00:20:52

even if he or she does not fully understand all of its implications.

00:20:53--> 00:21:04

However, it is essential that one declaring faith has basic knowledge of Allah in order to have correct belief in him.

00:21:05--> 00:21:27

If one's concept of Allah is distorted, one may actually believe in many gods, while denying that they do so. For example, Jews are considered as polytheists according to the Islamic belief, even though they strictly insist on belief in only one God.

00:21:29--> 00:21:37

Prophet Moses is quoted in the Torah as saying, Here, O Israel, the Lord, our God, is one Lord.

00:21:38--> 00:21:54

However, Jewish scriptures are full of statements that demean God. For instance, there are statements that God felt sorry for what he wanted to do to the Jews. For example, in Exodus

00:21:55--> 00:22:13

32, verse 14, and the Lord repented of the evil which he thought to do to his people. Prophet Jacob is mentioned as wrestling with God, and is given the name Israel which means according to their scholars, one who wrestled with God.

00:22:15--> 00:22:36

God is further described in Psalms 13, one and 423, as falling asleep, and awakening in the writings of the rabbis in the Talmud, their famous commentary on the books of the Old Testament, God asks the rabbis for permission to do certain things.

00:22:38--> 00:22:39

On occasion,

00:22:41--> 00:22:55

God intervenes in a debate between rabbis to inform them that the minority opinion is right and the majority is wrong. The rabbi's respond by telling him that he's out of order.

00:22:57--> 00:22:58

So behind Allah,

00:22:59--> 00:23:09

so God is treated like a personal servant of the Israelites, instead of them being his servants. On the other hand,

00:23:10--> 00:23:36

or on the basis of this relationship, Jews claim that they are guaranteed paradise as God's chosen people, regardless of what they do. Consequently, although they speak of one God, their concept of that one God is so distorted, that it ruins the value of the declaration of monotheism, if they retain these beliefs.

00:23:38--> 00:23:49

Most Christians, on the other hand, claim that God is three in one, God the Father, God, the son and God the Holy Spirit, according to the Nicene Creed, agreed upon

00:23:51--> 00:23:53

in 325.

00:23:55--> 00:23:56

See,

00:23:57--> 00:23:58

common error

00:23:59--> 00:24:06

by a majority vote among the bishops in the Holy Roman Empire.

00:24:07--> 00:24:25

In that claim, they deified Jesus claiming that he was completely a man and completely God. There have been debates about whether he was half God half man, or mostly God and partially man, or mostly man and partially God.

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

So that

00:24:28--> 00:24:29

Council of

00:24:31--> 00:24:32

I see CIA

00:24:35--> 00:24:45

ended that debate. Anybody declaring other than this was considered a heretic, hunted down the books burned, churches, clothes, etc.

00:24:46--> 00:25:00

So declaring faith while holding such beliefs, is invalid in God's sight. Not to be outdone in many parts of the Muslim world today, the graves of righteous Muslims of the past

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

have been turned into shrines to which 10s of 1000s make pilgrimage annually. At these shrines Muslims call on the dead for the fulfillment of their needs, or to care their prayers to allow for them.

00:25:16--> 00:25:40

These Muslims profess belief in the One God Allah, however, they are ignorant of the fact that only he answers prayers and that prayer to anyone besides him It should allow one against this state of affairs saying, well now you may know access to whom Billa Illa wha whom wish Likud?

00:25:41--> 00:25:45

Most of them who claim belief in Allah

00:25:46--> 00:25:47

commit shirk.

00:25:50--> 00:25:52

So our use of 12

00:25:53--> 00:25:54

verse 106.

00:25:56--> 00:26:11

Consequently, basic knowledge of God and His attributes is essential for one's declaration of belief in him to be meaningful, and for the declaration to have real benefits in both this life and the next.

00:26:12--> 00:26:14

The second condition is certainty.

00:26:17--> 00:26:31

This means that the person declaring faith should not have any doubts in his or her mind about a lot being the one true God and that he does not share his power with human beings, etc.

00:26:34--> 00:26:38

So for July, verse 15, Allah says they're

00:26:39--> 00:26:45

in the middle Minoan and Edina amanu biLlahi were a Sunni, so malami are taboo.

00:26:47--> 00:26:55

Indeed, the believers are only those who believe in a line is messenger, and then do not have any wavering doubt.

00:26:57--> 00:27:15

The process lm was quoted as saying, whoever bears witness, a nun has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that I am the messenger of Allah and meets Allah having no doubt in him, then Allah will put him in paradise.

00:27:17--> 00:27:25

So this condition excludes those who worship Allah out of precaution, we have what is known as a precautionary Muslim.

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

For example, some Muslims only pray a few prayers each day, regularly missing the morning prayer.

00:27:35--> 00:27:55

Others pray all five obligatory prayers together before going to bed at night, as they're too busy to do so during the day. out that's what they claim. Yeah, now there's only prayed the Friday prayer, while still others only pray during Ramadan.

00:27:57--> 00:28:14

This has become a widespread practice, despite the widespread general knowledge that the prayers have set times as the law stated in the grand in LA salata, Canada Alan mini Nikita ban mo Kuta.

00:28:16--> 00:28:23

Indeed, formal prayer is set for the believers at specific times. Surah Nisa, verse 103.

00:28:25--> 00:28:54

The reason for this common practice is the existence of doubt in people's hearts about the law. They're actually not really sure whether he exists or not. They pray just in case he does exist, and are brought before him on the Day of Judgment. However, such prayers out of precaution are of no value, since they are not the product of certain faith.

00:28:55--> 00:29:14

Such doubts may also be a consequence of satanic confusion. As promised, Solomon said, Satan will come to one of you and ask who created this? And who created that? Until the questions and who created your Lord?

00:29:16--> 00:29:36

A Christian for example, may say that he or she accepts Allah as the one true God. But in the back of his or her mind, there remains a doubt about Prophet Jesus being the son of God, that doubt ruins the value of the acceptance of the one true God worthy of worship.

00:29:38--> 00:29:59

Such a doubt indicates a lack of knowledge of a loss actually because it means that the first condition was incomplete. As a result, it was the practice of the prophets Allah to sometimes add a third declaration of faith to the original two. It was reported to have said

00:30:00--> 00:30:14

That one of the keys to entering Paradise is the belief that Isa was a slave of Allah and His Messenger, the word of Allah, which he bestowed on Mary, and a spirit created by God.

00:30:16--> 00:30:48

This confession is a denial that Jesus was the Son of God, or that he had any share in law's divinity. The third condition is sincerity. Sincerity is a necessary condition for the validity of the declaration of faith. Allah mentions in many places in the crime, that the religion of Islam, which he prescribed, is one in which its rites and rituals are all done sincerely.

00:30:49--> 00:30:52

Otherwise, they're not acceptable to him.

00:30:54--> 00:31:05

Allah said, I land in Dino harness. Indeed, sincerity and religion is for Allah alone. Surah zamar verse three.

00:31:07--> 00:31:12

He also said, well, not only to enlighten the Buddha was mostly seen alone,

00:31:14--> 00:31:53

and they were only ordered to worship a loss sincerely, making all religion for him alone. So I'll be in verse five. And the prophet SAW solemn, stated, that the person will be most pleased with my intercession is the one who says no one has the right to be worshipped but Allah sincerely from his heart, or heart. He also said indeed, allies made the Hellfire prohibited for whoever says Laila and Allah, desiring only pleasure of Allah.

00:31:54--> 00:32:18

This condition ensures that the declaration is not for all terior motives, that it is not merely a ritual done to achieve some worldly gain. A person may have the least has the necessary knowledge about God and have no doubt about it. However, the person has no desire to act on that knowledge.

00:32:20--> 00:32:36

He feels that life is too enjoyable to restrict his freedom at this point in time, maybe later on. So he only accepts Islam, because the administration of his company consists of Muslims

00:32:37--> 00:33:00

and he is hoping for a raise in pay, or he wants to marry a Muslim woman was informed him that she's not allowed to marry a non Muslim and so on, and so forth. There are a variety of other possible reasons why people may make the declaration of faith, having knowledge and certainty yet insincerely

00:33:01--> 00:33:17

lack of sincerity and belief in Allah can also be found among born Muslims themselves. Many Muslim use taught today totally lacks sincerity in their Islamic practices. If one of them was asked,

00:33:18--> 00:33:37

what are the conditions for Salah he will tell you first of all, do second your body has to be covered. Third, you your you must have a clean place to pray. Fourth, you must be in the right time for the prayer nature has begun already. Fifth, you must face the Kaaba Mecca.

00:33:39--> 00:33:42

However, when the time for prayer comes at school,

00:33:44--> 00:33:46

he may go and pray without Voodoo.

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

One may wonder how and why does this happen? Well, it's because he has learned these rules ritualistically and they have not been explained in such a way that they could enter his heart.

00:34:02--> 00:34:24

He was taught them in madrasa or Islamic school class at school, Islamic Studies class at school. The rules are not connected to faith based practice. He does have some knowledge and may be quite certain about what he knows. However, sincerity is missing.

00:34:25--> 00:34:36

That type of knowledge may be called satanic knowledge. Because he's treating knowledge ritualistically in the way that Satan did.

00:34:37--> 00:34:59

I believe he knew the oneness of Allah, and he had no doubt about it. But due to a lack of sincerity and his belief, it remained in the realm of superficial surface knowledge. It did not motivate him to act in accordance with that knowledge. Consequently, when Iblees was commanded to prostrate in honor of Adam

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

Directly refused God.

00:35:03--> 00:35:37

his refusal was neither because he disbelieve in Allah and His oneness, nor because he had doubts about whether a law was true God or not, just because his belief was based on knowledge, which was not accepted wholeheartedly, and sincerely in such a way that it would influence his actions. Sincerity has to be there. So that lie in the law will affect the individual, and he will live in accordance with it.

00:35:38--> 00:35:55

The fourth condition is truthfulness. One must be truthful when one declares the Shahada, the declaration of faith, otherwise it will be devoid of sincerity and will not be acceptable to Allah. Allah said.

00:35:57--> 00:36:13

Did people honestly think that they would be left alone to say we believe and not be tested? Indeed, I tested those who came before them. Allah will know who are truthful, and who are the liars.

00:36:16--> 00:36:38

The prophet SAW Selim was also reported to upset whoever bears witness truthfully from his or her heart, that none has the right to be worshipped except the law that Mohammed Salam is the slave and messenger. Without fail, Allah will make the Hellfire forbidden for him, or

00:36:39--> 00:36:53

wherever bears witness truthfully, from his or her heart. The condition of truthfulness is related to sincerity. One may be truthful, but not sincere.

00:36:55--> 00:37:25

However, one cannot be sincere without being truthful. That is, one may express a statement of truth for the wrong reason. And therefore not be committed to that truth. Sincerity is a product of commitment to the truth. For example, consider the case of an individual who has been raised in a community of Muslims and later gets an opportunity to study overseas.

00:37:27--> 00:37:32

While he lived in the community prayed five times daily and fasted

00:37:33--> 00:37:38

because to do otherwise, it's considered shameful.

00:37:39--> 00:37:46

it offends the dignity and the honor of his family. His father goes to the masjid The young man simply must go.

00:37:47--> 00:38:21

When the family members come together to break fast, he must join in with that to save his father's reputation. However, when he finally gets his wish to go and study in America, the truth becomes apparent. As soon as he reaches the shores of America. he befriends weak Muslims or non Muslims, and immediately abandons his prayers and is fast. Instead, his worship becomes devoted to pop stars, as he rides on the dance floors of the discourse nightly.

00:38:22--> 00:38:46

When he is confronted about his behavior quickly response during his summer holiday break, he will go home and stop by gender to make O'Mara to Mecca in order to erase it since. Such an individual is not truthful. He has only deceived themselves by thinking that Islam is only a game of rituals, he can play with a law.

00:38:48--> 00:39:00

Prophet Mohammed Salim did say, owner removes the sins committed between O'Meara's. However, the type of oma referred to by the prophet SAW something that was not this type.

00:39:01--> 00:39:08

One has to be truthful to oneself and to God for any act of worship to be acceptable.

00:39:10--> 00:39:12

The fifth condition is love.

00:39:13--> 00:39:18

Like the condition of truth, the condition of love is related to sincerity.

00:39:19--> 00:39:22

It is a natural product of sincerity.

00:39:23--> 00:39:30

For the declaration of faith to be valid, it must be expressed out of love for law.

00:39:31--> 00:39:43

Every reason that humans find for loving other human reasons exists in their relationship with God, but on a much higher level and to a greater extent.

00:39:45--> 00:39:59

It is the nature of human beings, that if someone does something good for them by giving them something they needed, or wanted, that they liked that person. Allah has blessed human beings.

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

In many ways, many more ways than they can possibly count. Allah said, Sir Abraham, verse 34, went out do now I'm at a law, a lot of sewer. And if you try to count the blessings of a law, you will not be able to add them up. Therefore, Allah deserves our wholehearted and unconditional love. If that love is not there, we are in fact denying his mercy. To sincerely declare faith in Allah while denying his blessings and mercy is an impossible combination. There has to be a real unconditional love for Allah underlying the declaration and no other form of love should equal or surpass it. Allah said men are nasty my

00:40:57--> 00:41:04

son in law he and dad. They are some people who take partners besides the law.

00:41:05--> 00:41:13

You have buena home to hug Bella. They love them as they ought to love Allah.

00:41:15--> 00:41:23

Well, levena amanu I shed the hub Belinda, but the believers love a lot more than anything else.

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

Allah.

00:41:28--> 00:41:43

Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim also said, if a person has the following three qualities, he will taste the sweetness of faith that align His Messenger are more beloved to him than anything else.

00:41:45--> 00:42:07

Loving Allah may seem somewhat abstract, as God is unseen, its blessings are not always apparent. Consequently, great stress on gratitude is made in Islamic teaching. It is by way of gratitude over law, and other human beings that love can develop

00:42:08--> 00:42:18

from the daily prayers, and Fatiha, which begin with the phrase all praise are due to Allah hamdulillah.

00:42:21--> 00:42:30

Thanking other human beings about which promises someone said, Whoever doesn't thank people, doesn't thank Allah.

00:42:31--> 00:42:51

And in general, the promise on solemn advisors to develop an attitude of gratitude by struggling against its opposites jealousy, saying, Look to those below you and don't look to those above you, as it helps you to appreciate allows favours on you.

00:42:53--> 00:42:54

This love

00:42:55--> 00:43:06

of Allah can be developed by reflection on the laws many countless blessings and contemplation on these gifts.

00:43:07--> 00:43:29

The six condition submission the natural consequence of true love, relative to Allah is total submission to him. Sincerity born out of love will always need one to declare his or her belief in Allah to accept an act on most divine instructions.

00:43:31--> 00:43:42

A lion writes his creatures among humankind and the jinn to that submission, saying, Why kneeble illa Rob become well as the moolah

00:43:43--> 00:44:09

and return to your Lord in repentance and submit to Him. Surah Zuma verse 54. Amen Asano Deena my man Assalam o jell o Lila, whoa more sin and who is better in religion than one who submits himself to Allah while doing good? So Anissa was one to identify.

00:44:10--> 00:44:32

When people love somebody, they will willingly do anything after that. their desire to please those whom they love, leads them to respond to any and all requests. It is common in the West. When a man falls in love with a woman. He expresses his love by saying I will do anything for you.

00:44:33--> 00:44:42

However, from an Islamic perspective, feeling that kind of love for another human being is neither desirable nor permissible.

00:44:44--> 00:44:50

Love of that type becomes an act of worship that belongs only to Allah.

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

If someone truly loves Allah, he or she will do whatever Alliance structure therefore submission to Allah

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

Man's can be considered an essential proof of one's love of God.

00:45:07--> 00:45:14

It is a condition which must be fulfilled, for the declaration of faith, to have practical meaning.

00:45:15--> 00:45:53

submission is also the consequence of belief that a lie is all knowing and most wise. Consequently, when he orders humans to do something, it is because they need to do it in order to succeed in this world and the next. Likewise, when he prohibits them from something, it is because there is physical, psychological or spiritual harm to their well being and it submission is the practical expression of the belief that there must be good reasons behind every divine command.

00:45:54--> 00:46:08

A loss commands are neither arbitrary nor pointless. meaningless actions done by humans indicate either insanity or gross ignorance and negligence.

00:46:09--> 00:46:30

God can never be perceived in this light by a true believer, as Allah Himself address this impossibilities saying if I said to Anima holla Kanako mahabharatha, for Allah come Elena latorre. Jerome, do you think I created you in just

00:46:31--> 00:46:37

as a joke in fun, and that you will not have to return to me

00:46:38--> 00:46:42

surah verse 115.

00:46:43--> 00:46:52

The correct response to instructions from God is submission whether the reasons behind them are understood or not.

00:46:54--> 00:47:07

Consequently, the four pillars of Islam, which follow the declarations of faith are all pillars of action to prove the truthfulness and sincerity of the declarations.

00:47:09--> 00:47:17

The seventh condition is that of acceptance for the completion of the condition of submission.

00:47:18--> 00:47:23

The additional condition of acceptance must also be fulfilled,

00:47:24--> 00:47:34

that his submission should not merely be I will do it because a law has commanded it but I really don't think I should have.

00:47:36--> 00:48:11

Acceptance must also be there for submission to be sincere and not just a culturally required ritual. For example, in some Middle Eastern countries where women are completely covered, their internal resistance is expressed in the way the over garments are worn. Some prefer tight fitting over garments to flot the shape of their bodies, while others were see through versions to expose what what they're wearing underneath.

00:48:12--> 00:48:19

And when they traveled to Europe and America, they remove their inappropriate coverings altogether.

00:48:20--> 00:48:30

It never ceases to amaze me how I would board Saudi airlines flights from Jeddah, flying to Canada.

00:48:32--> 00:48:33

And then

00:48:35--> 00:48:42

when I got on, of course, all the females are covered.

00:48:44--> 00:48:54

But when they take off, all the coverings went off. And when I was coming back to Saudi Arabia

00:48:56--> 00:48:56

the

00:48:57--> 00:49:14

plane would be filled with people, women without any jobs. But as soon as the pilot announces we'll be landing in Jeddah half an hour. All of a sudden, everybody is wearing a Baez and Nick box.

00:49:16--> 00:49:19

Now they all knew that God commanded them to wear coverings.

00:49:20--> 00:49:41

And in Saudi Arabia, the society enforced God's command. So they complied outwardly, however, in their hearts Western styles were attracted, still attract glamorous and desirable and the properly worn he job was ugly, backward and undesirable.

00:49:42--> 00:49:53

Consequently, without full psychological and emotional acceptance, the divine commandments for women's dress will not be adhere to property.

00:49:55--> 00:49:57

In this regard, the law said the following in the Quran

00:50:00--> 00:50:10

Well I can only move minute while I'm militant. Get the other level where a Zulu Umrah I akun Allahumma mahira min amoraim

00:50:11--> 00:50:25

it is not befitting for a believing man or woman. When a line is messenger decreed a matter they should have any option in their decision to follow.

00:50:27--> 00:51:05

He also said follow our ob Becca Lai manana had Taiyaki mukha female shudra beno, some Elia de doofy and footsy him how Raja Min mockolate where you suddenly mutaz deema But no, buyer Lord, they can have no real faith until they make you judge in all disputes between them without finding in their souls, any resistance to your wishes, your decisions, but accepts them with the fullest conviction, sore and bizarre verse 65.

00:51:07--> 00:51:39

Complete acceptance is essential for the spirit of the law to be preserved, while the letter of the law is being implemented. Consequently, the declarations of faith must be accompanied by acceptance of its implications in practical life, and not just external submission to regulations. Without complete internal acceptance, rebellion against the divine system will manifest itself at some point in time, many cases,

00:51:40--> 00:51:43

families will come to me, women will complain

00:51:44--> 00:51:54

when I married this guy, you know, he said the Shahada. He agreed that he would practice Islam. But

00:51:56--> 00:52:04

years later, we start praying, they start speaking in Islamic terms.

00:52:08--> 00:52:13

In fact, he just became a monster book, because that declaration of faith that he made,

00:52:14--> 00:52:16

was not really

00:52:17--> 00:52:24

one in which he had accepted the faith accepted

00:52:25--> 00:52:29

the oneness of Allah and worship and obedience to commandments, etc, etc.

00:52:31--> 00:52:33

They've endless condition

00:52:35--> 00:52:38

is that one must believe

00:52:40--> 00:52:43

that all worship besides the law

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

are fake

00:52:48--> 00:52:55

and accepted. One must disbelieve in everything worshiped besides the law,

00:52:57--> 00:53:14

in order for the acceptance of faith to be real, this condition is a reiteration of an elaboration on what was said earlier, concerning the meaning of the first declaration of faith. In this regard, a lot said in the plan,

00:53:16--> 00:53:55

whoever this believe is believed this believes in false gods and believes in Allah, as indeed firmly grasped, a trusty handhold for maniac for withdraw hood, or human Billa for Kurdistan second bill orogen was called to Al Baqarah, verse 256. And the promise all sudden, I was quoted as saying, Allah has made inviolable the wealth and blood of whoever says Laila and Lola and the disbelievers or and he this believes in anything worship besides the law,

00:53:57--> 00:54:00

and his reckoning will be with a law.

00:54:01--> 00:54:02

So

00:54:03--> 00:54:05

this statement of the process

00:54:08--> 00:54:22

focuses on this believing in anything worshiped by Allah. The first declaration contains both a statement of negation and one of affirmation. The negation is Laila.

00:54:24--> 00:54:27

gods have been negated

00:54:28--> 00:54:30

and is and its declaration

00:54:32--> 00:54:42

is a necessity to me to establish that everything worship besides the law is false. The negation

00:54:43--> 00:54:59

is an is necessary because the claim of belief in the law, while retaining belief in other gods is not acceptable, as the true belief in Allah. For example, Christians claim to believe in one God. However, they also believe that Jesus was God.

00:55:00--> 00:55:14

Under the Holy Spirit was God. Similarly Hindus also believe in one Supreme Being, Brahman, who is manifest in his creation in a variety of different ways, becomes incarnate as human beings

00:55:16--> 00:55:24

and as animals, called avatars. As a human, he came as Rama and Krishna,

00:55:25--> 00:55:30

and as an animal he came as a fish call matsya

00:55:33--> 00:55:36

as a turtle, he was called korma

00:55:37--> 00:55:41

as a wild boar is called varaha.

00:55:42--> 00:55:46

And as a man lion, he was called Naira Shem

00:55:47--> 00:55:48

or Naira Cyma.

00:55:50--> 00:55:59

He also becomes manifest as a variety of different gods having some of his different characteristics.

00:56:00--> 00:56:10

For example, He forms the Trinity, consisting of Vishnu, the preserver God, Shiva, the destroyer, God, and Brahma, the Creator God.

00:56:11--> 00:56:19

By not denying the falsity of all these gods, the declaration of belief in one God becomes meaningless.

00:56:20--> 00:56:26

Consequently, the first declaration of faith begins with a denial of all that is worship

00:56:28--> 00:56:33

before confirming that there's only one God truly

00:56:34--> 00:56:35

deserving worship.

00:56:36--> 00:56:59

That should also be noted that the denial of worship is not limited to the common ritual form of worship, like frustration and supplication. But it includes all of the different emotional forms like love, fear, hope, trust, etc, which ultimately should be directed, in their absolute sense to a law alone.

00:57:01--> 00:57:04

Thus, the Divine Names are wide and

00:57:05--> 00:57:14

contain the promise of Paradise, for whoever recognizes and genuinely accepts, to live by our laws, unique unity.

00:57:15--> 00:57:39

Such a promise is the greatest of all divine promises. And the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam expressed it on numerous occasions during this prophet, saying, Man call Allah in our hand Allah, the hand and gender. Whoever says there is no god worthy of worship besides Allah will enter Paradise.

00:57:41--> 00:57:44

Moving on to the fourth and last principle

00:57:47--> 00:57:50

where we should have fear where there is a warning.

00:57:53--> 00:57:54

On the one hand,

00:57:57--> 00:58:02

we can compromise a laws unique oneness

00:58:03--> 00:58:06

and destroy our faith

00:58:09--> 00:58:21

as in the case of Eman batal third principle, wherein we could not find any direct divine promises in the divine needs

00:58:22--> 00:58:28

a law head ahead, there are likewise no direct warnings in there.

00:58:30--> 00:59:05

However, as the promise of Paradise is only achieved by sincerely accepting the unique one Mr. A law, the evil consequence of hell awaits those who fail to accept the laws unique oneness. Consequently, we must fearfully and carefully avoid compromising laws unique unity, by blocking the various destructive avenues of ship, since there is only one true God worthy of ours.

00:59:07--> 00:59:15

among the various pitfalls of ship, which we should be particularly fearful of, is that of hidden ship.

00:59:18--> 00:59:25

One of the biggest dangers of all forms of worship, beginning with the declaration of faith is briea.

00:59:26--> 00:59:41

Doing acts of worship to be seen and praise by others. The prophet SAW Selim call it minor ship, and stated that he feared that it would affect his followers more than he feared anything else.

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

machmood ibn lobate reported that the Messenger of Allah said the thing I fear for you most is a ship karasawa minor ship. The Companions asked almost jurmala what is minor ship? He replied.

01:00:00--> 01:00:20

Aria showing off. For Verily Allah will say on the Day of Resurrection, when people are receiving their rewards, go to those from whom you were showing off in the material world, and see if you can find any reward from them.

01:00:22--> 01:00:35

But it also said on another occasion, the promises someone came out of his house and announced publicly, oh people, beware of a ship, and Javi

01:00:36--> 01:00:54

beware of secret check. People asked or messenger Allah, what is secret chimp? He replied, when a man gets up to pray and strives to beautifies prayer, because people are looking at it. That is secret.

01:00:56--> 01:01:17

Korea destroys all the benefits that lie in a in righteous deeds, and brings on the one who commits it a serious punishment. It is particularly dangerous because it is an It is natural for human beings to desire and enjoy the praise and admiration of their fellow human beings.

01:01:18--> 01:01:29

Doing religious acts to impress people, or in order to be praised by them is therefore an evil, which deserves our utmost precaution.

01:01:30--> 01:01:33

This danger is really significant

01:01:34--> 01:01:40

to the believers, whose goal is to make all of their acts

01:01:42--> 01:01:54

their religious acts dedicated to that. No doubt the likelihood that knowlegeable true believers will commit a sharpen up but there's no doubt

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

that they will do that a ship and also that

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

minor ship

01:02:06--> 01:02:09

is much more dangerous,

01:02:10--> 01:02:13

much more likely for them to fall into.

01:02:14--> 01:02:24

However, for the true believer, like everyone else, the chance of committing Ria is great because it is so secret and well if

01:02:25--> 01:02:46

it only involves a simple act of changing one's intentions. The motivating forces behind it are also very strong, since it comes from a human beings inner nature. If not boss alluded to this reality, when he observed Shrek is more hidden

01:02:47--> 01:02:53

than a black and creeping on a black stone in the mid middle of a moonless night.

01:02:56--> 01:03:40

That's great care has to be taken to ensure that one's intentions begin pure and remain pure. Whenever righteous deeds are being done. In order to ensure this dimensioning of our last name is enjoined in the slab before all acts of importance. And a series of doors supplications have also been prescribed by the province or solid before and after all natural habits like eating, drinking, sleeping, sneezing, sex, and even going to the toilet. In order to transform these everyday habits into acts of worship and developing Muslims a keen awareness of Allah.

01:03:42--> 01:03:46

It is this awareness called taqwa which ultimately ensures

01:03:47--> 01:03:50

that intentions remain pure

01:03:53--> 01:03:54

desire worship.

01:03:56--> 01:04:00

This is the other grave danger that we should share.

01:04:01--> 01:04:15

The other major fear that we should all have is that of falling into the worship of our desires. We should really fear being in a state where though we know that a lie is the only

01:04:17--> 01:04:25

one and true God. Allahu Allah. We do not make him the main one that we listen to.

01:04:27--> 01:04:39

That we work for, that we asked for and that we submit to in our daily lives. A lot of pointed to this struggle by describing those who fail it saying

01:04:40--> 01:04:55

a variety many other a na who our well done love wala elmen mahatama summary will be with Jalla basally

01:04:57--> 01:04:59

Have you seen the one

01:05:00--> 01:05:03

was taken his own desire

01:05:04--> 01:05:05

as a god,

01:05:06--> 01:05:17

whom Allah allows to stray in the face of knowledge, sealing his ears and heart and covering his eyes. Swirl Joshua, verse 23.

01:05:20--> 01:05:31

One who has bowed to his desires is diluted by Satan was beautified corruption, so much so that their desires have become an addiction.

01:05:34--> 01:05:44

This is the main methodology used by Satan, the past and the present and will continue to use into the future in order to mislead humankind and Jean guy.

01:05:46--> 01:05:49

He also makes false will appear attractive.

01:05:50--> 01:06:03

Paula Robbie, be my attorney. That was a you know, nyla home fell out of Willow Walla Walla and we all know, as my

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

Emily said, Lord, because you have misled me, here he blames Allah,

01:06:13--> 01:06:18

I will surely make faults within disobedience attractive to them to humans on Earth

01:06:20--> 01:06:23

and the jinn and I will mislead all of them.

01:06:24--> 01:06:26

Surah hedger verse 39.

01:06:27--> 01:06:45

This is the essence of the satanic strategy behind naming one tree in the garden, which was familiar to Adam and Eve, the tree of everlasting life a lot didn't call it that. That's what he called, in order to make eating from it appealing to them.

01:06:46--> 01:06:50

Alia Adam, how do you look at

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

American liar blah.

01:06:54--> 01:07:00

Satan whispered to him saying, oh, Adam, Shall I show you the tree of immortality

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

and a Dominion which will never diminish? Definitely the ending of

01:07:06--> 01:07:20

Adams and Eve's dominion over paradise had not crossed Adams mind nor Eve's until Satan introduced the idea with mortality and perpetual dominion.

01:07:21--> 01:07:38

So Satan introduced to him both the fear of death, the loss of dominion, which he and Eve were enjoying. Once these two fears entered their hearts, Satan had immediate and immediate solution for it.

01:07:39--> 01:07:45

And if eating the forbidden fruit would give them both

01:07:49--> 01:07:50

victory over death

01:07:52--> 01:07:55

and perpetual domination

01:07:57--> 01:08:08

beautified and justified disobedience of a law in order to let them falsely think they could escape death, and hold the minion along with

01:08:10--> 01:08:22

the police constantly tries to make humans and the jinn fall in love with falsehood, until they become addicted to doing evil deeds so much so that it becomes natural for them.

01:08:23--> 01:09:01

This was precisely what Satan had threateningly challenge the law with doing to mankind. This is what he promised he would do. Consequently, this is an exceedingly dangerous path. For a false hood is made to appear attractive to a person. They will pursue it with all his energy and strength in order to achieve what he perceives to be good for him, even if it will ultimately lead to his own destruction. May Allah protect us all from falling into that state of heedlessness and blindness? I mean,

01:09:03--> 01:09:10

we'll close our session calling on Allah using these names. Yeah, Allah Yeah, well, I had Yeah.

01:10:13--> 01:10:14

barakallahu

01:10:15--> 01:10:19

salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

01:10:21--> 01:10:25

With that, we complete to conclude

01:10:26--> 01:10:30

our session, session 49 B.

01:10:31--> 01:10:35

Now we'll move on to our q&a section

01:10:38--> 01:10:39

insha. Allah

01:10:51--> 01:10:52

provides students

01:10:55--> 01:10:56

questions

01:11:02--> 01:11:12

from Instagram, students, am I sinful? For my thoughts and comments that I utter in my mind about others?

01:11:14--> 01:11:24

What takes place in the mind? We're not held accountable for unless we speak about it, or we act on it.

01:11:26--> 01:11:30

That is the promise of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.

01:11:36--> 01:11:37

Question.

01:11:38--> 01:11:47

Why do we use Aleykum instead of alayka? Or la key while greeting a single person?

01:11:48--> 01:11:50

This is a matter of

01:11:52--> 01:11:52

honor.

01:11:53--> 01:12:00

You're honoring them more. You're you're building them. You're making them greater.

01:12:02--> 01:12:04

Santa Monica is fine.

01:12:05--> 01:12:09

But nobody uses. Everybody says Salaam Alaikum.

01:12:10--> 01:12:13

Some people say it's because you've got two angels with you.

01:12:15--> 01:12:30

This is just in the language, the plural is used to express honor and greatness etc. So it's saying you know, the God's peace and blessings be upon

01:12:33--> 01:12:34

on you.

01:12:35--> 01:12:39

A great person in my eyes and important person in my eyes, etc.

01:12:44--> 01:12:45

If Neff

01:12:49--> 01:13:00

Shawn Ray asks, Is it permissible to earn livelihood by playing cricket? Yes, again, you can be paid for the game.

01:13:06--> 01:13:08

Sadaf Ollie asks,

01:13:10--> 01:13:15

share, a scholar says that the practice of the surface is Cofer.

01:13:17--> 01:13:21

But it isn't chittick Can we take knowledge from such scholars?

01:13:22--> 01:13:23

Well, that's an opinion.

01:13:26--> 01:13:27

No

01:13:28--> 01:13:29

shouldn't

01:13:31--> 01:13:41

that people who are in the system where they believe that God man can become one with God?

01:13:42--> 01:13:47

No, we can pray to human beings, intermediaries and all these other things.

01:13:50--> 01:14:02

They don't consider it ship. Because they are as they say, you know, when you're praying through an intermediary, you don't believe the intermediary is God. But

01:14:07--> 01:14:12

when the pagans used to pay pray through other gods.

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

They said it was to bring them closer to God.

01:14:19--> 01:14:22

So the real God in their mind was a lot.

01:14:23--> 01:14:25

These were intermediary

01:14:28--> 01:14:31

demigods or whatever, who could help.

01:14:37--> 01:14:43

So I wouldn't want to negate taking knowledge from people or that opinion.

01:14:45--> 01:14:53

Because I may be an error in one area, but there are many other areas that they have valuable and useful knowledge

01:14:56--> 01:14:59

which you can benefit from so

01:15:00--> 01:15:00

Wouldn't

01:15:04--> 01:15:06

you is one mistake to just cancel

01:15:07--> 01:15:09

out scholars

01:15:12--> 01:15:13

bouhanni

01:15:30--> 01:15:32

doesn't seem to be complete.

01:15:34--> 01:15:37

Is it okay to avoid mixing?

01:15:39--> 01:15:43

People try to fraud people fraudulent people?

01:15:47--> 01:15:48

Sinclaire?

01:15:50--> 01:16:01

sajida I know water from Bangladesh, I guess, in Bangladesh, the parents of newly wedded bride, gifts, animals,

01:16:02--> 01:16:06

to the family of the groom, the sacrifice

01:16:07--> 01:16:24

of that, would here be sufficient for the family of the group? Well, it's not from Missoula to do this. If they want to do it, they can. But to say that they have to do it should be done. No, it's not from this.

01:16:26--> 01:16:33

From our Instagram, students, greens, which I see about my late father are from Allah does.

01:16:35--> 01:16:38

My father, so no, looking back

01:16:39--> 01:16:44

to them? No. No, what you know, the fact that you,

01:16:46--> 01:17:00

you dream, and you see your father, assuming your dead father, in that dream, that's from Allah. It makes you feel good to see him.

01:17:01--> 01:17:04

You know, then it is a blessing from Allah.

01:17:05--> 01:17:06

But he doesn't see you.

01:17:08--> 01:17:15

Now, do you actually see him but the one that you see in the gym is not actually. But

01:17:16--> 01:17:22

the form that he was in at some point in life

01:17:24--> 01:17:32

that you're seeing him in, you could see him as a youngster, or middle aged or old, depending.

01:17:33--> 01:17:34

I mean, that is

01:17:35--> 01:17:38

not actually him. But that's what he looked like.

01:17:46--> 01:17:55

Sean Mohammed asks, in the lab, I know that with respect to sheep or goats, only one person can take a share.

01:17:56--> 01:18:00

But a maximum of seven persons can share in capital.

01:18:02--> 01:18:04

Unless people share

01:18:06--> 01:18:10

Well, you know, to sacrifice an animal,

01:18:12--> 01:18:13

it can be for household.

01:18:16--> 01:18:19

myself, my children, my wife and children.

01:18:20--> 01:18:35

One sacrifice is enough for the family. We don't have to make one for the wife, one for each of the children. No, this is not required at all. So nice to make one for the family.

01:18:37--> 01:18:50

And by that they mean the family that you are responsible for. Those who have children are married and left and now their own families don't have to sacrifice on their behalf.

01:18:56--> 01:19:01

sonoff asks a person who neglects Salah out of laziness,

01:19:02--> 01:19:06

or praise only Ramadan. Is he considered a Catholic?

01:19:07--> 01:19:13

No, my view and most scholars that he's not considered to be a gaffer.

01:19:15--> 01:19:17

It is an act of gofer

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

to

01:19:20--> 01:19:21

neglect Salah.

01:19:23--> 01:19:26

But as a well known principle,

01:19:29--> 01:19:38

a person who does an act of Cooper is not necessarily a Kaffir This is the person who does an active ship isn't necessarily emotionally.

01:19:39--> 01:19:49

They may have done an act of it and Allah can forgive that act. It's possible based on other things that the person who has done

01:19:50--> 01:19:59

resemble Ahmed asked my parents asked me to move her arm products to another room. That her arm for me to do

01:20:03--> 01:20:04

Well,

01:20:05--> 01:20:06

technically, yeah,

01:20:07--> 01:20:12

moving her arm around, they should be around things should be gotten rid of not moved around the house.

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

But

01:20:18--> 01:20:18

it's

01:20:19--> 01:20:32

relatively small. So if that's going to keep your family together, if not obeying them, it's going to create a lot of problems, etc. Then you may move it around the house,

01:20:33--> 01:20:34

not

01:20:35--> 01:20:36

giving it to others.

01:20:39--> 01:20:50

Shirin asks, What's the explanation of the Hades? The most beloved, the to Allah is the most regular and constant, even if

01:20:51--> 01:20:52

it means that

01:20:53--> 01:21:03

doing a little good, regularly, is better, more pleasing to Allah and doing a lot of good.

01:21:04--> 01:21:06

One time and then

01:21:07--> 01:21:09

no more good for another year, then

01:21:11--> 01:21:13

another piece of would be good.

01:21:14--> 01:21:22

Time passes, no more good. No. Consistent good. is better than infrequent. Good.

01:21:24--> 01:21:32

I'm Instagram students. How can I get admission in international Open University for Islam?

01:21:35--> 01:21:50

Well, the mode of admission is one, whether you want to study Islam, or you want to study psychology, when you study psychology, you're going to study some courses, from Islamic Studies anywhere.

01:21:51--> 01:21:56

01:22:38--> 01:22:39

Java.

01:22:44--> 01:22:47

Question from how he say?

01:22:49--> 01:23:04

Does the reward of the obligatory prayer get diminished? If we pray it two hours late while at work, or depends on what was late me two hours after it's time? Definitely.

01:23:05--> 01:23:15

If it's within the time frame, but just at the latter part of the timeframe as opposed to the beginning, it won't diminish and reward.

01:23:21--> 01:23:22

Hey, Mr. Graham,

01:23:24--> 01:23:28

what's up student loans is the only way I can afford higher

01:23:35--> 01:23:46

student loans. The only way to get higher education? Well, it's probably to get higher education in a particular place, a particular location

01:23:48--> 01:23:51

and other places you may be able to

01:23:53--> 01:23:56

get higher education without

01:23:58--> 01:24:08

having to resort to student loans. So we have to look at your circumstance. If in the end, you can't.

01:24:09--> 01:24:18

Then you're welcome to apply for a scholarship at my university, the International Open University and if you qualify,

01:24:19--> 01:24:27

then you will get your scholarship and you will be able to study for free.

01:24:33--> 01:24:39

Madeira tajudeen asks chef, one of my friends gifted me a book for xyla man.

01:24:40--> 01:24:50

I found lots of unauthentic narrations that elements of Sufism in it. Is it okay to get rid of these kinds of books? Yes.

01:24:51--> 01:24:52

When you're rid of them

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

Shake

01:25:03--> 01:25:07

Shack, Shakira, Shakira man

01:25:08--> 01:25:18

how to respond to non Muslim friend, when calamity or child strikes them. They say why did God do this to them?

01:25:20--> 01:25:21

And

01:25:22--> 01:25:26

you can say to them, why shouldn't we do it to you?

01:25:28--> 01:25:29

Have you been a good boy?

01:25:30--> 01:25:35

No. Have you been so perfect? You don't deserve any punishment?

01:25:36--> 01:25:38

Of course that

01:25:39--> 01:25:43

once we question it's not perspective then we shouldn't

01:25:44--> 01:25:45

have a calamity.

01:25:47--> 01:25:50

We just thank Allah we don't. And we don't

01:25:53--> 01:25:54

call it Sala as

01:25:58--> 01:26:02

the Prophet Muhammad SAW seldom fast. Nine days of Niger

01:26:08--> 01:26:08

Well,

01:26:09--> 01:26:11

when he wasn't on Hajj

01:26:13--> 01:26:14

Yeah.

01:26:17--> 01:26:21

Gotta assume that he did. Cuz he taught us and told us to do it.

01:26:26--> 01:26:31

For the question, Instagram, how can women get the same reward as head for STEM?

01:26:34--> 01:26:36

cells sunrise after?

01:26:39--> 01:26:39

How?

01:26:40--> 01:26:42

How can women get the same number?

01:26:45--> 01:26:47

Well, actually, it's not a question.

01:26:48--> 01:27:10

Oh, maybe asking how is it that a woman will get the same reward for Hajj woman or man will stay is after praying project. remembering Allah wa whatever on sunrise. Salim said that they would get the reward of how much?

01:27:14--> 01:27:21

Yeah, men and women, both men and women. It's not it's not specifically for women. And and

01:27:22--> 01:27:27

believe the term used is even in terms of men. The narration

01:27:29--> 01:27:31

but the point is that

01:27:33--> 01:27:41

that's how great the reward for remaining until sunrise. They're getting up and pray two rakaat

01:27:42--> 01:27:45

after praying, so lots of fudging.

01:27:49--> 01:27:51

Okay, any other question?

01:27:56--> 01:27:58

What's the cure of depression?

01:28:02--> 01:28:04

What's the cure of depression?

01:28:05--> 01:28:19

What's the cure of depression? Well, it depends if it's a medical condition, it might be a certain type of medicine. And those who specialize in treating people with this types of

01:28:20--> 01:28:22

illnesses, there are best

01:28:24--> 01:28:25

qualified to

01:28:28--> 01:28:42

identify the cure. Otherwise, as a general principle, if one is depressed, the best thing to do is sudo. That sugar.

01:28:43--> 01:28:44

That's the best thing to do.

01:28:45--> 01:28:48

To do sudo the sugar and

01:28:50--> 01:29:01

reflect on the goodness or a loss put in your life and your depression will lift. The longer you stand to do it, the longer you make dua to Allah.

01:29:03--> 01:29:04

The more that will lift

01:29:09--> 01:29:10

question.

01:29:13--> 01:29:14

I have two sons.

01:29:15--> 01:29:22

But by the time I had the first one, I didn't have any money to do his arcade.

01:29:24--> 01:29:27

I have only two goats at the moment.

01:29:29--> 01:29:34

Who have the tools that I do have an article for

01:29:37--> 01:29:39

you can do one

01:29:40--> 01:29:41

for

01:29:43--> 01:29:44

the

01:29:45--> 01:29:46

previous

01:29:48--> 01:29:48

son

01:29:50--> 01:29:52

and one for the current son.

01:29:56--> 01:29:59

I'm assuming you're talking about sons here.

01:30:00--> 01:30:06

As one for the daughter is already confirmed to for the sons

01:30:08--> 01:30:11

or what could be two or what?

01:30:14--> 01:30:16

So in terms of which one you're going to do first

01:30:18--> 01:30:21

instead of the other, you don't have to go there

01:30:27--> 01:30:30

one of your husband doesn't disclose the previous speaker.

01:30:33--> 01:30:36

Well, is the situation

01:30:38--> 01:30:39

if your husband

01:30:41--> 01:30:43

gets married and doesn't inform you

01:30:46--> 01:30:47

it's not haram

01:30:48--> 01:30:56

it's not preferable. So it is preferable to inform you that you know that but it is not obligatory for him to do so.

01:31:01--> 01:31:12

Question from hamidah dosed? Can we combine the color of Ramadan fast with fasting in the month of the hedger

01:31:15--> 01:31:16

first nine days

01:31:23--> 01:31:27

no one is so not recommended and the other one is far

01:31:30--> 01:31:30

so

01:31:34--> 01:31:35

to say now you're going to

01:31:37--> 01:31:38

leave your

01:31:40--> 01:31:40

farm

01:31:42--> 01:31:45

which he should have done in Ramadan until

01:31:48--> 01:31:51

the ledger join them up together it's not a good thing

01:31:52--> 01:31:53

it's not good

01:31:55--> 01:32:06
