Our praises due to align Miller's Peace and blessings beyond the last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.
This is session 50
and the name
is a summit
which is named number 71 in our series,
the self sufficient
the eternal refuge
in terms of Quranic location
the Divine Name a summit is mentioned only once in the Quran.
For who Allah who I had a lot of summit
sorry I've lost verses one and two.
In terms of its meaning linguistically the Divine Name of Samad comes from the trilateral route sod, meme dal
and has some done as it's verbal now.
It has four main meanings the first meaning is
To reach or attain or aim at something.
The second meaning is to turn to and to need.
The third meaning is to remain unchanged, that unaffected. The fourth meaning is to be everlasting and eternal.
The Arabic dictionary this,
as the master, was always obeyed.
This is being used for human beings, without whom nothing is done
is also the one to whom people turn to for the fulfillment of their needs.
However, relative to Allah, Assad is the unchangeable one.
Boom the entire creation depends upon
is the one on affected by any circumstance, and the only one able to fulfill all of the creations needs in the most perfect way,
without himself being in need of anything, or anyone.
As a note, even taymiyah argued, that although grammarians in their explanations use the definite form of Samad as Samad to refer to humans as the ancient Arabs did in their prose and poetry. The definite term as Samad should only be used for a law as a lot did not say Allahu samidoun
as he did in the case of Ahad where he said a lot who I had done
using the definite form. Instead,
he used the definite article the in the US subud, the La flamme, which in his view indicated that the definite form should only be used for Allah alone,
as only a law deserved to be described with perfection of his attribute of some idea, the ultimate and eternal refuge from all perspectives. Even though the creatures may be sources of refuge from some aspects, they can provide refuge in all aspects.
Furthermore, the creatures are divisible into parts, while Allah is not. They have needs like a while a law does not and everything besides a law and has need for him.
While he has no need for them,
everything does not rise up to anyone over laws, creatures, and a law doesn't rise up anything in creation.
nor is he befitting or nor is it befitting, for him to do so.
Also, all of creation is made up of parts, which may be separated and disconnected, while allies a summit for whom none of this is possible.
In terms of application, according to open bottles, four principles, the first of which is to adopt where applicable, the demand name Assad may be adopted and applied in two basic ways.
The first is to be a source of help and support for our fellow Muslims, wherever they may be. And the second is to understand the laws, somebody
The state of being the ultimate refuge, in order to strive to turn only to Allah for the fulfillment of our needs.
So the first being a source of refuge.
We are imitating a lot on our level. Everywhere we turn in the world today there are refugees suffering, whether in Myanmar, Burma, from genocide,
in Syria, it lived from bombing by Baca aceds troops, and the Russians in Jordan, Syrians fleeing from Syria, as well as Palestinians fleeing from occupied Palestine.
In Ethiopia from war, South Sudan also for more the Dr.
See from volcanic eruption
in jails in Libya trying to cross the Mediterranean in Mexico trying to get to the US, etc.
The country which has taken in the most refugees globally, is Turkey.
There are almost 4 million refugees currently living in Turkey.
Turkey posts some 3.6 million registered Syrian refugees, along with close to 320,000 persons of concern from other nationalities.
Over 13 million Syrians received aid from the Turkish aid agency AF ad.
Turkey has spent more than any other country on Syrian refugee aid. In terms of the top countries hosting where refugees, Turkey was followed by Pakistan, with 1.5 million of Danny's Lebanon 1.1 million Palestinians, the Islamic Republic of Iran with 982,000 Afghan refugees and immigrants who fled the Soviet Afghan war. It's ensuing Civil War and the war
from the US in Afghanistan.
There are 659,500
most of the refugees are from
war in South Sudan
as well as the Eritrean war.
following them is Jordan
was 654,000 Syrians
in Bangladesh with 880,000 Rohingya refugees.
as Muslims, we are obliged to help these refugees, especially considering that the majority of them are Muslims. Following the spirit of law joshy in Ethiopia, who took in the first Hydra of Muslim refugees fleeing from persecution and death in Makkah,
fled to Ethiopia, and were taken in by the ruler that joshy later converted to Islam,
and the answer in Almudena.
1400 years ago,
they welcomed the second wave of refugees from Makkah and took them in as brothers and sisters in Islam.
The prophet SAW Selim continuously called on his followers and the oma to come to the aid of those in need of help, saying time and time again in a variety of different ways, help others whenever you can.
For example, He connected providing support to weaker members of society, with protecting society as a whole. It was reported to have said I'll movement little movement Calvin Yan yes do ba boo Ba Ba,
Ma shabaka buy in as a bear.
The believers are like one structure, each part supporting the others. Then he put his fingers between each other, showing that support.
The Muslim community is like a single building, which will crumble if any weakness in its structure is not fixed. Therefore helping the needy is ultimately helping ourselves as a community of believers. In fact, given the Muslims faith in God is in question if he or she does not strive to help their unfortunate brothers and sisters. The problem is not solved and restated the golden rule of doing unto others as you would have them do unto you in terms of faith and brothel, brotherhood, saying, like man who I had who had died, he, my your head bull enough, see,
none of you has truly believed until he loves for his brother, what he loves for himself, just as we would expect help. When we are in need, we have to be ready to help
Currently in need, none of us are guaranteed a comfortable future where all our needs are met the way they are today.
How many of the Muslim refugees were relatively comfortable prior to the disasters which happened in their lives, and the country's
giving in charity, all of them many prophetic instructions, which enjoying charity come under the general heading of providing help and support to others.
the effort to implement as some idea
on our one scale.
Being charitable, is the most essential moral characteristic of Islam.
Which is why so
often called obligatory charity, which is a contradiction in terms was instituted in the life of every Muslim able to share with others. The promises Salam quoted Allah saying,
you have naadam on photonic spend in charity, of son of Adam and I will spend on you. This is a direct promise, and a guaranteed offer of finance, financial support for those who spend charitably, in the cause of others.
I remember a well known die.
we push people to donate charitably by telling them that if they wanted a new house, or a new car, they should spend all of their current savings
And the law would replace them
with abundance in which their current wishes would be fulfilled.
And even a book even published a book
in which he gathered
people who did exactly that.
And Allah bless them with fortunes they're never expected or never thought was possible.
He may have gone too far, however, as there are also many who gave all their wealth and didn't receive their wishes.
Giving has to be in moderation, so as not to put one's own family into distress. And we looked at so many statements of the process and unwary forbade people from going overboard in giving.
But the basic concept of sacrificing for the sake of Allah is a fundamental part of his
wish should believe that it is the right of the needy popcorn Lisa 11 mushroom
that we are fulfilling and not a favor were giving or doing for the poor.
As a lie that ready and titled it that way. Talk regarding the obligatory is a cat and sadaqa is only the voluntary version.
The prophet SAW Selim also encouraged helping the needy from the perspective of relieving them of distress and distress is something we all face in our lives. distress can easily lead to depression and depression is the leading cause of suicide. So distress is easily understood.
And it is something we all wish to avoid in life. Consequently, the Messenger of Allah said to us manifesta million. korma min Cora bit dunya nafas Allahu anhu, cornerback 10 min Cora Miyamoto kiama.
Whoever relieves a Muslim of some worldly distress, Allah will relieve him or of some of the stresses of the Day of Resurrection.
When one sees the news and the dire situations of our Muslim brothers and sisters,
and what they're facing in the millions, we must do more than just cry, the distress that they're facing,
we must come to their aid Subhana Allah, Allah made the reward for relieving the stress for anyone in this life so great, by linking it to help from Allah for us on the Day of Judgment.
And that is the time when we will need relief from stress and distress the most.
Therefore, here are now we need to take every opportunity which comes our way to help those around us without expecting or needing funds from them as the law said, in the monitor mo pumila wodgina lamudi remain calm Jessa and while ashapura
saying, we're feeding you for the sake of Allah alone, those who are
giving generously, we seek me the recompense nor thanks from you.
We do so with the assurance of a law, that our acts of relieving others of distress in this life will surely benefit us in the next
in our hearts. We should thank those who help buoy Hill for giving us the opportunity to help them as we will need all the help we can get on the Day of Judgment. The promises solemn further stress relieving the burdens of others saying
woman yes sir and I'm why sit in? Yes, sir, a long way he could dunya without Hara. Whoever eases the burden of a destitute person. Allah will ease his burdens in this world. And the next. This encouraging statement, the process I love added a bonus from a law, a promise on behalf of a law that is easing of our burdens will not only be beneficial for us in the next slide, but it will also be beneficial in this life. So Panama.
So if we want some ease in this life, whenever we find ourselves in stress and difficulty, we should go out of our comfort zone and look for someone whose burden we can remove, or else
we can remove or ease here and now.
The problem is that I seldom further emphasize this reality of a loss help coming to those who help others by defining it as a constant in this life. He assured us our laws, regular help,
as long as others find help from us regularly.
Be happy reassured, as with the good news from a summit, the ultimate source of refuge saying while Allahu fionn in Abdi, my Candela, Abu fi only
Allah will any servant Okay, so long as the servant aides his brother.
If we help others, and they are not appreciative,
and they don't help us when the tables are turned, we should not lose hope and lose faith in humankind. Instead, we should take comfort in the promise of a summit that is help is just around the corner.
In fact, even the Muslims faith in God comes into question if he or she does not strive to help their unfortunate brothers and sisters.
Promise Arsalan restated the golden rule of doing unto others as you would have them do unto you in terms of faith and brotherhood as follows diamino I had to come head to head belly, or Hey, my head bull NFC, none of us truly believed until he laughs for his brother, what he loves for himself.
As we all would love to find help and support in our times of distress, we should be a source of help and support for many fellow Muslims in distress today around the world.
With such a background, being a help being friendly to fellow Muslims, and to people in distress in general, is quite obviously, a high level of moral character, which almost then should strive for Alhamdulillah Muslims are globally known for being the most generous nation in this world.
The second way of implementing a some idea is to understand the implications of a summit
and apply them
now summit, say he allies uniquely one, Allah is the eternal refuge.
In this verse, Allah elaborates on his uniqueness, his idea, mentioned in the first verse here
which generally means that Elia is perfect in all of his attributes, and that all creation is in need of him.
Even Abbas was reported to have said that as Samad meant, he is the master as say it was perfect and is serenity, the most noble, a Sharif, who is most perfect in his nobility. The most magnificent allowed him was perfect in his magnificence the most for marrying al Halim, who is perfect and it's for berets. And the all knowing Allah alim, who is perfect in his knowledge, the most wise al Hakim was perfect in his wisdom
allows perfection implies that he is not in need of any of his creation in any way, as nothing they can do.
can better or benefit is already perfect state. The attribute of some idea of self sufficiency invites the believers to reflect on the purpose and goals of their worship.
Today most people worship as if they're doing a law favor.
A law school did those Bedouins who consider their conversion a favor to Prophet Muhammad's Salaam saying
Mr. Noon alayka and assalamu Poon Lata Manu aleja Islamism balilla who Yamanote a
lil Imani in Khun dawn saw the team, they regard their conversion to Islam as a favorite to you. Tell them don't count your Islam as a favorite. Instead, it is a law who has granted a favor to you by guiding you to true faith, if you are indeed choose
The purpose of our creation is to worship a law as we have said previously, and repeatedly. That is crystal clear in the final revelation. Our purpose was not left to be deduced or discovered, or was stated in no uncertain terms in all of the previous books in Revelation. However, it is only the Quran the final revelation
that that purpose was preserved and spelled out in no uncertain terms. And consequently it does remain clear for human guide over the many generations since its final revelation. Allah said Maha Lupton, General INSA in the Abu only created the jinn and humankind, to worship me.
In case those who heard or read this verse might think that Allah needs humans or the jinn to worship Him. He went on to clarify that he has no need from them saying mowdy Dominion home, the rest in one mouth only do I use the moon. I don't want any provision from them, nor do I wish them to feed me.
The jinn have nothing that they can provide for a lot, as he has no need of anything at all. They cannot even provide for themselves or other creatures, much less Allah. Allah is the provider as he went on to say in the law, what was
the poor till Mateen Indeed, Allah is the all provider owner of power and the most firm
with regard to worship based on animal sacrifices, like what is prescribed during hatch an ad
and recommended at the time of a child's birth, the update
is also not based on any need, which Allah has for sacrifice. A lot clarified his lack of need saying later now Allahu Allahu
Bulacan Yana Allahu a taco I mean,
neither their meat nor their blood of the sacrificial animals, which is a lot, but it is your piety, your mindfulness of a law that reaches him.
That's the prescription of worship, as the purpose of creation is for a human need.
If it's not for laws need, a law doesn't need it, then it must be for human need. However, to understand why human beings need to worship, one must first understand what is meant by the term worship itself. In English, the term worship comes from an old English word, meaning honor. Consequently, worship in English is defined as the performance of devotional acts in honor of a diety, or deity.
In common uses usage, worship means calling on God for your wants and your needs. As such, most people usually worship God only in times of need. However, in the language of the final revelation, worship is called a bada. In Arabic, which is derived from the noun AB, meaning a slave. A slave is one who is expected to do whatever he wishes, wills and commands. Consequently, worship according to the final revelation means obedience submission, to the will of God.
This was, and this is the essence of the message of all of the prophets sent by a lot to humankind.
For example, this understanding of worship was emphatically expressed in a statement attributed to Prophet Jesus in the Gospel according to Matthew seven, verse 21.
Jesus is supposed to have said, none of those who call Me Lord will enter the kingdom of God, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.
The will of God was contained in the divinely revealed laws, which the prophets taught their followers. Consequently, obedience to divine law is the foundation of worship.
In terms of the need for worship itself, why I didn't allow prescribed worship, he didn't need it. We're saying that human beings needed so how do they lead? Why do human beings need to worship God? by obeying the divinely revealed laws? Because obedience to the Divine Law is the key to success in this life and the next?
The first human beings Adam and Eve were created in Paradise, expelled from paradise for disobeying the Divine Law.
The only way for human beings to return to Paradise is by obedience to the law.
Jesus, the Messiah, was reported in the Gospel according to Matthew, to have made obedience to the divine law, the key to paradise.
he supposedly said,
Now behold, one came and said to him, good teacher, or Matthew is narrating this.
Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that will, that I may have eternal life? So Jesus said to him, Why do you call me good? No one is good, but one, that is God, clear distinction
of himself from God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.
In Matthew 519, Jesus was reported to have insisted on strict obedience to the commandments, saying, whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven. But whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Divine laws represent guidance for humankind in all walks of life. It is the moral compass for human communal life, defines right and wrong for them and offers human beings a complete system, governing all of their affairs.
The Creator Lord knows best what is beneficial for his creation? And what is not, of course, we think that we know
we cancel laws of God because we think we know better. But reality is that the divine laws command and prohibit
Various acts and substances to protect the human spirit, the human body and human society from are in order for human beings to fulfill their purpose by living righteous lives. They need to worship God through obedience to His command.
The remembrance of God. All of the various acts of worship contained in the divine laws are designed to help human beings remember that it is natural for human beings to sometimes forget even the most important things. Humans often become so engrossed in fulfilling their material needs, that they totally forget their spiritual needs.
regularly, and regular prayer is ordained to organize the day of the true believer around the remembrance of God.
It interweaves spiritual needs with material needs on a daily basis.
The regular daily need to eat, work and sleep is linked to the daily need to renew man's connection with God.
With regard to regular prayer,
a lot of states in the final revelation
in many and Allah hula Illa Allah Anna, far Buddhist nee we're optimist Salalah decree.
Indeed, I'm a law. There is no god besides me. So worship Me and establish regular prayer for my remembrance
for my remembrance to be mindful
Guiding fasting, Allah said, its main goal
is the same mindfulness.
Yeah, you already know amanu quotevalet Kumasi amo karma kuchibhotla de Dena Min cubberley con la la quinta taco, or you will believe fasting has been prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you that you may become God conscious that you may be mindful of God.
the believers are encouraged to remember a lot as much as possible. Although moderation in all spheres of life, whether material or spiritual is generally encouraged in Divine Law. An exception is made regarding mindfulness of Allah, it is virtually impossible to remember a lot too much. Consequently, in the final Revelation, chapter,
I encourage these believers to remember him as often as possible. Yeah Isla de nominal, Guru, Allah, the Quran kathira. all believers remember a lot of
remembrance of Allah is stressed, because sin is generally committed when Allah is forgotten.
The forces of evil operate most freely when human engine consciousness of God is vast.
Consequently, the satanic forces seek their utmost to occupy people's minds with irrelevant thoughts and desires which are harmful in order to make them forget a lot.
Once God is forgotten, people willingly join hands with the most corrupt elements of society. The final Revelation the Quran addresses this phenomenon directly, saying, it stopped whether I lay my shade on for answer home the crown law.
Satan has gotten the better of them and cause them to forget Allah.
Allah through divine law has prohibited intoxicants and gambling primarily because they cause human beings to forget Allah.
The human mind and body easily becomes addicted to drugs, games of chance, etc. Once addicted human guides desire to continually be stimulated by them, leads them to all forms of corruption and violence among themselves. Allah describes the hidden agenda behind the satanic plan precisely. In them it is a shade on a UK avena Khun na da wallbottle da philharmonie What am I here? Where should the kumaun decorilla Ronnie Salah
For how to monta
Satan's plan is to hide enmity and hatred among you with intoxicants and gambling and hinder you from the remembrance of Allah and regular prayer, Will you not then abstain through my diverse 91.
Consequently, human can the jinn need to remember a lot for their own salvation and spiritual growth.
All humans have times of weakness in which they commit sins. If they have no means of remembering God, they sink deeper and deeper into corruption with everything. However, those who follow the divine laws will be constantly reminded of a law which will give them a chance to repent and correct themselves. The final revelation accurately describes this process saying, well leadin Ada Filofax schatten alemu, fussa, home lockerroom, law, style federal, legal obeah
those who, having done something shameful, or having wrong their own souls, remember a law and immediately ask forgiveness for their sins. This is what Satan wasn't able to do. He couldn't accept the sin and turn back to Allah seeking forgiveness.
That's worship. The purpose of our creation is not
but for our own benefit. It is the only way to baptize.
The second pillar of even a call for
application of the Divine Names is to confirm where they are unique and inapplicable.
that Jesus was God
such claims are totally rejected in the final revelation simply because he and his mother ate food the true God as no need for food is as summit
so a lot of said Malema see no Maria
poulan but the solid male probably a rustle almost deeper Can I call on it Tom?
Messiah son of Mary was only a messenger other messengers had come and gone before him. His mother was a virtuous woman both ate food like other mortals
okay for bye k for nobody you know lol.
So Mundo and now you can
see how clear I have made these signs for them. But see how diluted they are? It's very clear, very obvious, a simple presentation.
God has no need for food.
Jesus ate food,
it couldn't have been God. Of course, they say he was a hole man. And he was also got at the same time.
So, it was being man that ate food not got
a lot. So his claim that their saints provide for the needs of creation.
Similarly, any belief in which any of our laws attributes are given to man totally destroys this some idea aspect of a Sufi author by the name of at the
we have mentioned on numerous occasions before I wrote, I saw a saint, a Wali reach a grade station, wherein he witnessed all intelligent and unintelligent created beings, wild animals, insects, the heavens and it stars the earth and the globe of the entire world, gained its sustenance from him.
He heard all of their songs and conversations in a single instance. And he gave each what they needed and what was best suited for them without being distracted by one from the other.
Such a claim
is giving some idea to a laws creation, a law protect us from such ignorance.
Another expression of shirking some idea can be seen in the Sufi title of
soccer, to deliver deliverance,
the ultimate source of help
they had of the Sufi hierarchy of saints in ascending order of merit
bottom level, which has 300
they're called the FBR. The Chosen Ones,
following them, the next level has 40
following them the abrar there are only seven bias following them for the old dad, the pegs, following them are the nakaba the watchmen at the top is the portal, the pole was considered to stand up his time and above him is the host or he is himself the both depending on which Sufi
hierarchy one follows.
So, this belief and they believe that this pyramid of saints
capable of taking on their shoulders, a portion of the sins of the believers
according to many most mistakes
according to them,
if the top three classes
among them, they're immediately replaced by those under them.
When the old dies, the kutub replaces him. There is a moving up all through series, so that the purest soul of each class rises up to the next level. The whole is commonly called upon for help and refuge when people in dying are in dire need of the father of Gilani and title
in the subcontinent. Also the awesome the greatest source of refuge is prayed to with the DA of shidduch Yeah, Abdul Qadir Livni Oh Abdulkadir save me.
En La La La e are in NY la hirato nobody died. People commonly think that if you make this blog from the brand that means somebody died. No. It just means the calamity has taken place. And this is surely a calamity
for the Shiites, palainian it is also Lal caffee relates the following saying attributed to the fifth Imam Mohammed Al Bashir. In which Jabir asked him, Why is the Prophet and the Imam necessary?
He answered, so that the world may remain in righteousness. That's a lot withholds chastisement from the world while a prophet or a mom is upon it, for Allah.
Allah will not chastise them while you are among them. Chapter Eight verse 33. The prophet SAW Selim said the stars I safety for the people of heaven, and the members of my family, our safety for the people of the earth. If the stars went, there would come to people of heaven, something hateful to them. And if the members of my family went, they will come to the people of the earth, something hateful to them.
And Allah is linked to obedience to them to obedience to Him.
Or believers obey Allah and the messenger. And those possessed of authority among them, among you.
They are sinless, the pure ones will do no wrong and do not rebel. They are the ones who give help and success and right guidance. They give help and success and right guidance
through them a lot giving sustenance
to his servants and it's
through them, his lands proper prosper and the rain falls from heaven and the earth gives out its blessings
not the amounts or the profits thus, like the Sophie's the Shiites have given some idea to their so called infallible him out.
But claims have to be rejected totally. And absolutely, in order to maintain the uniqueness of our laws Divine Name, as summit.
principle of women by Paul
was that we should have hope, where there is a promise. Now the Divine Name a summon, eternal refuge contains by implication, the divine promise of help and refuge to those deserving it and even those not deserving the promises that if you help Allah He will help you.
So in Surah, Mohammed, verse seven, Allah says there, yeah, you already know amanu in tonsorial law, you can sort of come with a bit up to Dharma comb, or you believe if you help Allah, He will help you and make you stand firm.
This is a general principle for us to keep in mind.
The promise of our laws help if we help him or we just said that a law is not in need of help.
He doesn't need anything from immigration. So then how can we help him
we help him by helping his religion
by helping the implement the teachings by following the commandments, the instructions, by living a proper Islamic life. In that way, we metaphorically help Allah. Because practically speaking,
we cannot help.
Life for human beings is synonymous with struggle and hardship. From our entrance in this world to rolling over, crawling, standing up and walking, we struggle on through all the stages of life. The eye insano in like a car different in our ob Becca Callaghan, from melotti
all humankind, toiling laborious Lee towards your Lord, you will meet him. So well in Shabbat, verse six, until we finally meet Allah to be recompensed fully for all we earned in this life.
But throughout these various stages, we are in need of help from others around us.
we should appreciate
the help which people give us all along the way.
And we should also be ready to do the same for others around us.
That is what unites us. We help each other
through the means which Allah has given us, to help others. So Allah helps others through us, we become instruments, our laws help
to the believers especially, and even to the non believers.
Moving on to the fourth
pillar, to have fear where there is a warning.
The Divine Name of summit does not directly contain a warning, as it describes the laws perfect state of some idea
of being without any need. The warning lies in the consequence of not trying to help others as we should.
That we would end up in distress and depression as a result of not doing our part in helping a law to helping humankind because if Allah said in terms
Lion circle for law, if you help a lot, I will help you.
What it's saying is that if you don't help a lot, then Allah won't help you.
at critical times, not necessarily not help you at all, but at critical times, you will be at a loss for loss help, you will wonder why a lie, you're not answering my prayers, I'm calling for your help. I'm begging you for help. But you didn't help others in their times of need. We didn't have the Dean of Islam to promote it, when you could have, you didn't share the knowledge of Islam that you had with others around you. We didn't teach your children, Islam. So they grew up, flaky and shaky.
We didn't help a lot. So
the consequences, Allah will not help us. And that is a fearful consequence, to be in a state where we're not helped by a law
when we need his help the most.
With that, we're gonna conclude our session, today's session,
calling on Allah using these names this name,
or law as summit, we know that you are the only eternal refuge provide a refuge for all of our brothers and sisters who are suffering all over the world. Your summit, make us worthy instruments of your aid to them,
make us turn only to you for the fulfillment of our needs, and teach others to do likewise. Yeah, Allah, we realize that we need you at all times. So aid us to be of those who turn to you only for our needs, and adorn us with a strong desire to please you alone. I mean,
a lot of people. So that's why they come to LA he bought a cat
will now move on to the third
section of our session, which is the Q and A
Beamish noorani. Why do Christians say which Quran to read is either many different versions of the brand? No, there's only one Quran.
a recitation wash, for which the same grant that we use is printed with slight differences involving.
But they are the last ones in the world to talk about which version or which Koran to read, because they have so many versions of the Bible.
Alone, just the Gospels themselves, scholars have said, there are more than 50,000 manuscripts
of the Gospels, just the four gospels No need to go into all of the other writings of Paul.
Saul of Tarsus,
the founder of Christianity, who call the followers of Jesus Christians, it's him.
His writings are way more even than the so called four gospels, which is supposed to be the gospel of Jesus as conveyed by these individuals. But in fact,
they don't even have
the gospel of Jesus. So they said that, for these four gospels, there are over 50,000 manuscripts, no two manuscripts agreeing with each other.
Imagine that, in everything agreeing with each other and everything. They may be partially agreeing, let's say there's no agreement, there's agreement to some degrees, but not in everything in the texts.
That's how confused and lost they are.
When they ask you which Quran to read, we say to them.
Can we read the gospel of Jesus, please? Do you have it? So we can read
Of course they have to say no, we don't have it. All we have with the Gospel according to Matthew, and who is Matthew? We're not sure.
And Mark Oh, who is Mark? Oh, we're not sure.
Luke, the gospel according to look, who was Luke?
We don't know.
JOHN, who is john john the baptist? No, no, no, no.
So what john was that? We don't know.
So you are the last people
to talk to us about which version of the Quran we should read. But if you go to
Guyana in South America, or Brazil, where they're Muslims, look at the Quran that they have, and then go to Iran, go to Indonesia, go to China, go anywhere in the world. And what you find is the same.

the Instagram students,
can a woman make it a condition of marriage on the car, that the husband will not take another wife?
No, she cannot.
But she can put in the contract. Because the processor said, whatever condition
is put in the contract, which goes against the book of Allah is invalid.
Once again, put is that if
her husband takes a second wife, he will give her permission to divorce him.

But we can say basically, to do whatever Islam instructs us to do.
With consciousness of Allah.
Being aware that we're not doing it ritualistically.
Culturally, according to tradition, we just do these acts, say these words.
there is a disconnect.
Our soul is not in it.
It's just an empty shell,
then we cannot achieve
mindfulness of the law.
can only do so when we do what we are commanded to do, and advise to do sincerely
trying to understand and to sincerely reach out to Allah through these different avenues of worship. She has made

So these terms are only used to distinguish to clarify what your

instagramers does it

Is it haram to use aftershave that contains alcohol? No, it's not. It is forbidden to drink alcohol.
Salma Hayek had actually asked in the beginning of that,
how to donate to the needy, why
not to people who are trustworthy? Well, there are organizations among Muslims and are dedicated to giving charity to those who are truly needy.
And you meet the people who are in charge of those organizations and if they seem to you to be trustworthy people you look at their operation doesn't look like it's ripping people off, etc. You know, then you trust them you give
Allah will not hold you for more than that.
Five check as what's the best means what sila getting one doula answered.

Consumer Zubair asks, we believe that everybody's life is already preordained.
how one should self improve his or her life with such
an authentic belief?
What is preordained
is that if you take the various routes
Following the advice of Prophet Muhammad,
and you improve yourself, that's what was ordained.
And if you don't take
the various routes,
you don't make any effort to improve and to change yourself, etc.
And you don't change, then that was what was ordained.
what would happen?
what you want it to happen.
It's your choice.
But Allah knows ahead, what your choice is going to be. And he wrote it.
So the fact that he wrote, it didn't mean that they made you make that choice. No, it's still your choice.
my husband is mentally hurting me saying bad things and disrespecting my parents, what should I do?
Well, you need to get help in stopping him from doing that.
By disrespecting your parents speaking ill of them, etc. Of course, it's not permissible. And you shouldn't tolerate it.
You need to get maybe somebody from his family was reasonable to speak to him, advise him and help you to get him to stop.
But obviously, you can't. That's why you're asking the question here now. So you need help
get help from those who he respects? Who can advise you properly?
from easy and natural. What's the limit of giving sadaqa? Should we give a little every day or fix a monthly amount or to wherever the need arises? You give it wherever the need arises.
If you want to fix the amount, a small amount that were there are a particular amount every day you can do that too.
forgiving every month, decide you're going to give so much. It's up to you. sadhaka is
your choice completely how you want to go about doing it, you can do it.
Question? further question from easier lateral. It's still confusing why people made some people sense. were they doing too much worship? Like up your closet? Gilani, we said to be a humble it's color.
No, they weren't doing too much worship.
The reason why they made them into saints was because shavon
made a trick on them.
deluded that confused them.
Thinking that simply because that person was pious.
if that person makes do art for you,
it's more likely to get to Allah.
So they would ask those people to make draw. Later, after the people died. shaytaan came to them, and said, even though these people are dead,
they are like martyrs. They're not really dead.
So if you pray to them, they will still take your prayers to Allah.
So these ignorant people follow them. And this practice spread.
And of course, this practice already existed amongst Christians,
who were among many who joined Islam who became Muslims whose countries were absorbed in the Islamic empires spread.
They were used to that. So it was already in their system, praying to saints and all that. So some of them brought it in with them.
Now gave it a new name, covered it up.
Or they simply did it out of ignorance. They didn't have sufficient knowledge, and they didn't go and seek knowledge. That's why the process was not said. tolerable enemy for either locally Muslim seeking knowledge is compulsory forever.
Okay with that Sharla will be closing our session today.
