This is session 51 be
deer and elk deer
These are names 7273 and 74, the abl,
the enabler and the completely abl
terms of Quranic location, as we mentioned in the
Divine Name al Qadir is mentioned in 12 places in the Quran, among them is will isolate the Holocaust somehow it will
be accorded in a local law home
isn't the deal created the heavens and the earth, able to create the likes of them? So I seen verse 81.
In terms of Al Qadir, is mentioned 45 times in the Quran.
For example, you go to my shop where you have a federally my shop Walla Walla coolessay in pioneer. He punishes whomsoever He wishes that forgiveness, whomever he wishes, and a law has power over everything that's were made a verse 40
the Divine Name Allah
is found four times in the
Akan Allahu Allah coolessay in the raw, Allah is perfectly Able to do all things when calf verse 45
linguistically I'll call the alpha deer and I'll mobster deer come from the trilateral route of dal bra with other rune as its verbal now, it has four main meanings to meaning. First, is to be capable, the second is to measure the third is to decree and the fourth is to prevail. derivatives of this rule appear some 132 times in the garage in 11 different forms
actually unlocked third gear comes from a five letter route I live
as I live off,
raw with it
as it's verbal known now.
However, it carries the same meaning as pottier.
But a more intensive for the present participle Kadir, one who is able and its intensive form podere. On the file pattern has Mokhtar there as even a more intensive form on the present participle pattern of move time.
Relative to Allah these three divided names are podular, pudieron, amateur, they're all imply ability power and only protects. This means analyze able to do everything and anything and he has power over all things. This power encompasses all of creation.
In terms of application, according to him about four principles, we have previously completed part one of session 51, in which we covered the linguistic aspects of the names in detail. And Principle number one of the four principles for adopting and applying the Beautiful Names of a lot suggested by the 11th century and the Lucien scholar imaam, ali, even harloff even but Paul died, the 1057 of the Common Era was from Cordova. In FY two, we will cover the remaining three principles as outlined by Eb batam demand bill
on the first commentators on Sahih al Bukhari
so moving on then to
Principle number two, to confirm were unique and inapplicable.
omnipotence of the moms and the saints, the Divine Names of father
imply that Allah is so totally powerful and omnipotent, that only he alone has control over all aspects of creation. This implication is affirmed by rejecting all claims, which gives human beings total or partial power control over creation.
However, Imam Khomeini in his book, The Islamic government stated,
the spiritual status of the Imam is the universal divine vise Jhansi. That is something mentioned by the Imams peace be upon them.
It is a vice jrmc pertaining to the whole of creation, by virtue of which all the atoms in the universe humble themselves before the holders of our party. It is one of the essential beliefs of our Shi school that no one can attain the spiritual status of the amounts, not even the cherubim or the prophets.
The universe is in the hands of the Imam Al collini. The Shiite equivalent of Imam Al Bukhari wrote a chapter in his book was siouxland caffee, entitled, all the earth is owned by the Imam, in it he narrates from Abu Basir.
And that Abu Abdullah that is in mam jofra saw that said, Did you know this, that this world and the next world are owned by the Imam who may place it anywhere he likes and granted to anyone he chooses?
Professor Murtaza matahari, a student of Eman Khomeini expounded on this concept in his book master and Mastership, in the title entitled,
The law of control.
He stated, according to the sheary belief, in every age, there has been a perfect man having supernatural influence over the world, and a sort of control on the hearts and the souls of men. And on this account is called for jack.
Then he went on to describe the levels of wilayat of control level by level until he said, the fifth level is the highest stage. At this stage, even external nature becomes subject to the will of man and obeys.
The miracles wrought by the prophets and saints come under this category. A miracle is wrought by a prophet or a saint, because he is granted a sort of special power, he can do with the universe, what he likes, out of Billa, but only with the permission and consent of Allah, he can convert a rod into a serpent, he can cure those who are born blind, and they can even bring the dead person back to life. This extraordinary power he gets by treading the path of proximity to Allah, and getting closer to the center of existence, and it is nothing else than the light of control. Some people are under the impression that a miracle is affected or affected directly by a law and the prophets and
the saints have no hand in his performance.
For it is beyond human power to change the laws of nature.
The prophets and the saints work only as showman. According to this view. matahari goes on to say miracles are brought direct by Allah without any human participation. However, this view is not correct.
This year I believe, regarding reliance of control gives human beings are laws supreme and Universal Power as a father of a deer and elk must adhere to completely controlled creation. This she I believe, is clear evidence and clear deviants. That open ship
in their belief system destroys our Hadler smiles the fact it must be totally rejected and condemned, while affirming a loss complete and unique control over the universe.
In terms of Sufi numerology, the practice of assigning mathematical values to the ancient Hebrew alphabet, called the object was inherited by Muslim fortune tellers to interpret their clients characters and to define their futures. Consequently, it is not surprising to find that the prophets companion if not bass, was reported to have denounced numerology as a form of magic
according to the Islamic law
Telling is included under the general heading of magic, and thus was classified as Haram. forbidden by the prophets Allah Himself. He said man at our raffle for Salah who is Shea lamb talkable lo Salatin Urbina, Laila.
The prayer of one who visits a fortune teller and asks him about anything will not be accepted for 14 nights.
A common example of Quranic numerology, in reference, or infrequent use, until today, is people who believe in the use of the numbers 786 786.
It is commonly used to represent the best Mullah and is written on amulets and documents for good luck, what is known as Baraka
Quranic verses are also turned into numbers, and used in the preparation of amulets. For example, in a popular book deceptively entitled prophetic medical sciences published in India, there are detailed instructions on how to prepare amulets, diaries, in part to any family art by Sufi Mohammed Aziz or rock man Sokka Penny Patty, and also in part three nakshi sulaimani by Harada, Ashraf Ali lucknowi Empire to the contents offer amulets to cause love.
To give victory,
to make pregnancy
to increase sales in one shop,
and the repayment of loans to spoil bewitchment to release captives, to return a runaway person
to realize a displace level
and to develop a strong memory.
Among the important rules to follow carefully the author states are rule number three, keeping in mind the person the position of the starts, and the moments is but essential for one who practices spell casting, or writes an amulet and rule five, performing ablution is essential before muttering a spell or writing an amulet.
Under the heading of miscellaneous amulets for love, the co author sufian Mohammed Aziz, the rock man saw him wrote in part two,
the following Lux chart is based on the following idea
of chapter two first 165 you have buena home, hug Billa. One levena amanu I said to have been Leila. So there's a verse mentioned here. And
as part of the amulet that's being made, after that Arabic text, there, there is a 786. I supposedly is Mila. And then the
the series of numbers that are written there which don't follow any discernible pattern, except all of them are in the three hundreds following that, it has a hub falon bin Flan, Allah hub phoolan bin Flan, you know, it could be translated as
for so and so.
On the love of so and so.
And then he has bitten underneath it instructions for us. He says there, the woman who keeps this chart does not with her, shall be exceedingly loved by her husband. And whoever looks at her will deeply fall in love with her.
Naturally this must have been a very popular is a very popular amulet knocks in India.
And wherever else people read this book
it is quite evident that this so called Islamic amulet is a crude mixture of Quranic texts, pagan rites, and furthermore, the claims regarding it are themselves preposterous and the rules mix ablution normally done for prayer with a strong
Which the province are seldom classified as a branch of magic, about which he was reported to have said, Whoever acquires knowledge of any branch of astrology has acquired knowledge of a branch of magic, the more he increases in that knowledge, the more he increases in sin. Such amulets also involve fortune telling, because those who prepare them indirectly claim knowledge of future events, which will result from wearing these preparations. The brothers are Solomon said, Whoever approaches the fortune teller and believes what he says, as this believe in what was revealed to Muhammad
or an act of
belief in the power of numerology and its efficacy or and the efficacy of amulets equate allows creatures with him and gives his creation the divine attributes associated with these Divine Names and other alpha do
all the things which that
I mean that's it are supposed to be able are supposedly able to do as described in the prophetic medical sciences to cause love, give victory cause pregnancy increase sales in one's shop, repayment of loans spoil bewitchment to release captain's the turret return a runaway person and to realign the displace naval
Where did that come from? And to develop a strong memory. All of these are the domain of Al Qadir likewise, all claims that analysts have divine power and omnipotence to cause others to love you, to make you or others pregnant or to give you victory over your enemies etc. all claims of open shirk. So enter heedless mousy fat that is the Unity the unique unity of belaz names and attributes.
So, it is a requirement that we
reject roundly soundly rejects all such claims. All books of this nature should be burnt.
Our families should be warned against them.
These are books of misguidance and ship law protect us from its evil.
Principle number three
hope where there is a promise. These Divine Names are Cardinal Cardinal moqtada. Like so many other divine means of power and omnipotence, are full of promises of support and eventual success from a law in all of our endeavors, all our plans and all our efforts. Regardless of how difficult and complicated our situations may seem, a lot of Kadir is able and always able to change our circumstances. If we make strategic efforts to change ourselves. As a law already said, in the law, I lay your value to my bit, Holman had a rule maybe emphasize him. Indeed a law does not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.
We only have to make sure that our goals are islamically sound, our strategies to achieve them likewise,
and that they be blessed and not tainted and corrupted by an Islamic methods and means as the means determine the ends. If we use Hara means no matter how noble and charitable the ends are meant to be. We are bound to get haraam results in the side of the law, even if people are only aware of the apparently halaal aspects of the ends. This is enshrined in the prophet SAW Solomon's foundational statement in the Mullah maliniak or enamal equilibrium Manoa these are judging by their intentions, everyone will get what they intend.
The means determine the ends. The ends do not justify the means. Jabir ibn Abdullah quoted Allah's Messenger sallallahu wasallam as saying in the year of the bloodless conquest of Mecca while he was still in Mecca, prior to returning to Medina, Allah and His Messenger have forbidden
In the sale of wine carcasses, swine and idols, someone asked, oh messenger of Allah. You know that the fact of carcasses is used for coating that is water proofing our boats and vanishing heights and people also use its oil for our lamps.
He responded saying, No, do not use it. It is forbidden.
A lot of messenger went on to say Salaam Salaam, may Allah the Exalted the majestic make war against the Jews. When he forbade them from using the fact of carcasses. They melted it down into oil, then sold it and made use of the money.
Under normal circumstances, haraam means an items cannot be sold. According to the Shetty app.
For as long as people benefit from their sale, they will continue to use them. It was also related, that when the processor was informed of a woman in Makkah, who prostituted herself and gave her earnings to charity, he said it would have been better for her not to prostitute herself, and not to give anything in charity.
These Divine Names are color, coded and contain GREAT DIVINE promises. That whatever sustenance we need, will ultimately be provided by law. This reminder provides a solid foundation for patients in our times of need. It is also a strong reminder for us not to despair about receiving a loss support at the first sign of failure or delay in the fulfillment of our plans. For lies the best of planners and a lot of promise that's saying, Oh my Tati, Leia Allahu Maharaja, we are zuku min heights ally.
Allah will find a way out for whoever is mindful of him, and he will provide for him from an unexpected source. So ortholog verse two and three.
Reflecting on the meanings of these Divine Names a partner
should strongly discourage us from seeking sustenance from haram needs, and encourage us to remain patient until the halaal options that a lot promises become available. Or, even more importantly, we should make a concerted effort to find alternative means through cooperatives, whereby projects may be launched by involving the participation of other members of the community if not all, we should always remember
that the ends do not justify the means. Although the ends justifies the means is a commonly quoted is commonly quoted to justify the use of haram
and does not seem to be supported by the well or it does seem to be supported by the well known Sharia Maxim adorato to be almohad necessity makes permissible the forbidden this fifth Maxim is often misused
its use is only justified where human life and limb or threatened it's not under any circumstances, you know, where you feel you have to do this thing, then it's okay. No, it's when you are life is threatened, you're gonna lose a life or limb, you know, your hand your foot or something like this, if you don't get this operation, nobody's giving you the money.
So, you take it out of the bank on a loan,
to save your life or your limb.
So in life threatening situations, the ends and necessity becomes saving a life. In such cases using whatever means within reason, including the forbidden means to save human life becomes justifiable and permissible. However, this legal Maxim has to be used very cautiously and carefully by taking into account additional necessary conditions, like disallowing their use when the harm becomes greater than the benefit. For example, were to save one life one person's life involves the double deliberate loss of two other people or more, it should not be done.
On the other hand, focusing on the promise of provision should give us confidence to trust that Allah will provide for us alternative ways
Which will be sufficient for us. Oh my
God, if the worker Allah Allah, for whoever,
whoever trust in Allah will find him sufficient for him. So at the LOC, verse three,
focusing on promises of help, nourishment and sustenance in the Divine Names of Father pudieron reminds us that this life is just a test, and that bad times are inevitable. As a law I looked at her himself says, Well, I Naboo and accomplish a miracle hope you as you are able not to seminal and while he will amphis what some art or best [???] is Sabri. Surely I will just you with fear, hunger and loss of wealth and life and the fruits of your work. So give glad tidings to those who are patient. So Al Baqarah, verse 155. In times of trial, which are seemingly beyond our abilities to handle, we should pray as a law taught us to pray
patiently for a lighter trial than what has been given to those who came before us. So on Baccarat 26th Allah says, for us to pray robina will attack me Elena is run gamma Hamilton who annalena probably not
our Lord, do not burden us as you burden those before us.
Penny also told us to pray to
make the burden not too heavy for us to handle. Robin will attack Mila Halina
Robin our law to her Mila mala Takata lobby
are no I do not burden us with more than we have strength to bear.
So why did he teach us to pray in that way knowing that it would never be the case. As he already clearly said, Allah has already clearly said
Well, I agree Maura buka. Your Lord will not oppress anyone.
Sir, I'll rest for the night.
So what can we conclude, we can conclude that because human nature is such that whenever we are tested, we immediately feel the test is too much to bear, regardless of the reality of our circumstances. So this da becomes a release valve for Al Qadir, protecting us from venting our anger at the law. Instead, we can vent our wounded feelings in a humble way, instead of an indignant and hearty way, which leads us or leads many of us, if not most question allows divine wisdom with questions like why? Why am I being tested? I don't deserve this. Why me? And why not someone else. Instead, we just beg a law to give us the strength to handle the burden or give us more strength to
And remain respectful and humble before the almighty was able to change all situations if he wishes.
real hope is the natural product of complete trust in someone or something. full trust, on the other hand, must itself be based on a strong belief that not only is the object of trust capable of doing what is hoped for, but that he she or it is willing to do it.
There is no doubt that Allah Al Qadir and cardia the omnipotent is Able to do all things. It only remains for us to do what it takes to deserve support. For example, we should find comfort and hope in the promise of Al Qadir to help those who support his cause.
While I answer run along, man yanzhou
Allah will certainly aid those who aid his cause throughout the Hajj, verse 40. Having understood that principle, we should then strive our utmost to know live and propagate Islam. In whatever circumstances we find ourselves in, like prophet Yusuf in the prison, giving Dawa to his cellmates, leading to his release an elevation to a position of authority and respect.
We should also stay close to the firmly upright people
To be deserving our loss support, we have to aid a law by supporting Islam and striving to become better Muslims. One of the best ways to do that is to surround ourselves with people who are affirming their practice of Islam. Perhaps some of their families. Perhaps some of their firmness will rub off on us. We should seek the advice of the upright and become someone who inspires others to stay firm also, the influence of friends cannot be overemphasized. There is no doubt that if we're striving to be firm in our faith,
as I instructed for stop him, comma omit well my taba woman taba mock will well I thought, well I thought about in the hole my time I knew the numbers here.
Stop him comma omit. Well my tab woman taba mark will talk well I talked about in the who be my time aluna was here. So keep firmly to the right course, as you have been commanded, come together with those who have repented along with you and do not overstep the limits, for he sees everything you do. So who would verse 112
the peer pressure of a bad circle of friends can easily weaken our resolve and cause us to abandon the path or as they say, in the West, if you lay down with dogs, you will get up with fleas. The promises Allah made a simile of good friends being like the perfume merchants and bad friends being like the blacksmiths. Either the perfume merchant will give you some perfume, or you will at least go away smelling good from the fragrance of the perfume, which he opened for you to smell.
On the other hand, in the case of the blacksmith, either sparks from the heart iron is beating will burn up holes in your clothing. Or at least you will walk away stinking of smoke. So we should choose our friends extremely carefully, as our entire future may depend entirely on them. processor langwarrin. Choose your friends well for you the rays on the Day of Judgment with your friends. The first thing the prophet SAW Selim did, upon arriving in Medina, was to construct a mosque, which served as the first Community Center for Muslims. It also served as the headquarters of leadership and a social center. At the same time, he established an actual bond of brotherhood between the
Maharaja rule, immigrants from Mecca and the answer the helpers from Medina and Allah advise the community to stay together saying and keep yourselves patient, by being with those who call upon their Lord in the morning and the evening, seeking His pleasure. And do not let your eyes overlook them. Design The adornments of the world and do not obey one whose heart I have made heedless of my remembrance. One who follows his desire and whose affair is ever in neglect, circa verse 28.
When we are with a group of righteous friends, we always are reminded of Allah, we will easily find someone who can help us to be upright and commit ourselves to alas commandments, we will easily find someone that can help us to be patient, someone to compete with in doing righteous deeds.
When we see our friends, doing more acts of righteousness, worship, etc. Increasing in charity, and virtuous activities, dressing more modestly, more and more.
memorizing the Quran and learning more about the deen all of that will influence us and make us feel that we can do more. And this will open more doors of goodness for us. But if our friends are not practicing, we will feel quite accomplished by doing the mere minimum requirements. We will only compare ourselves with them and think at least I pray
at least I fast Ramadan. At least I don't commit any major since little do we realize that in time we will start compromising even the bare minimum that we are doing. This is why a lot showed us the end result of those who had bad companions and what they will regretfully say on the
They have judgment.
On the day the wrongdoer will bite on his hands and regret saying, Oh, I wish I had taken the way of the messenger. Oh, woe to me.
I wish I had not taken so and so as a friend. He led me astray from the remembrance after it has come to me. So for con verses 27 and 29. Consequently, we should exert all our efforts to avoid bad company and prevent our children from being in Bad Company, because it is a major injustice to them to be heedless in this matter.
Praying the eyes taharah the prayer for seeking good regularly
whenever we have a decision,
no matter how big or small, we should consult al Qadir and
and ask his help in choosing what is best for us and our Deen in this life and in the Hereafter, by praying to Allah and requesting his guidance with the Sunnah da of istikhara. To do after seeking good
as human beings we are constantly confronted with choices and decisions, whose results whether good or evil are totally hidden from us. The uncertainties of our future leave us in a continual state of worry and doubt, everyone would like to know what the future brings. To have a sense of certainty about the future is something all human being secretly and openly long for. This desire sometimes leads them to commit idolatry.
By doing by going to fortune tellers to Sara's Oracle's witch doctors, etc, and listening to their predictions. Islam being the natural and divinely ordained way, recognize this this innate need in human beings and has protected the pure faith of its followers from corruption by giving them a sense of contentment and peace in their daily lives through providing guidance, this respect. The guidance consists of clear instructions to the believers to put their trust ultimately in God, whenever decisions are to be made. When trust is placed in the Divine Decree, a sense of commitment or contentment and happiness is sure to follow in order to help us accept the concept of destiny,
and to keep our trust in Allah. Prophet Muhammad wa sallam taught his companions, a special supplication, known as da and Mr. Harada.
One of the prophet SAW settlers companions by the name of jibin, as salami said, the prophet SAW Selim taught us to make the prayer seeking good in all our affairs, the way he taught us a chapter from the graph.
He said, If any one of you decides on a matter, he should pray two units of voluntary prayer, then say Allahumma inni, as the hero can be olmec
Allah, I seek your guidance to do what is good for me, because of your infinite knowledge. So we first begin by recognizing a loss, infinite knowledge because he is the foundation
of other knowledge is the foundation of other and Allah is the path You're the one who will fix the other.
In that way, we turn our affairs completely over to a law recognizing that his knowledge of the future is complete. He alone knows the consequences of our actions. Then we proceed saying, well, I start to DeLuca you put the rhotic and I seek your help because of your power. We ask a lot of help because he is
having complete power over all things. Only a law has the power to create the circumstances favorable for our choices. No human being can do it. A law alone has the power to destined the circumstances which are in our favor.
Well as Luca, min follicle, Avi
and I asked you from the greatness of your favorites, we ask a law a great favor from his grace, because if it is not from the grace of God, then any good choice we make will will help
will not be blessed if it's not. But if it is from the grace of God, then any good choice you make will be best. So we're asking him for a favor from his grace. If we look at ourselves in terms of how many times we disobey God daily, none of us can claim that we deserve what we are asking a lot for. Absolutely not. Which is why Prophet Muhammad SAW said and told us very clearly, that none of us will enter Paradise simply because of our deeds, including himself, meaning that we may think that we deserve it. Because of the good that we have done. However, on a strict scale of good and bad deeds one to one, no one would enterprise when problems are solved, I'm told his companions that
no one would enter by others because of the deeds. They asked me when you all messenger online you replied even I, unless one asks, and is granted allows grace and mercy.
As explained earlier, God's grace manifests itself by multiplying good deeds tenfold. Allah says in the brand that one good deed is worth 10 times its value, and one evil deed is considered just as one
man job in hostility fella who are shrew I'm fairly common job is say, for la yuja in LA Miss LA,
for whom lie is lampoon, whoever has done a good deed will have its value multiplied 10 times to describe it. While whoever has done a bad deed will repay the repaid only with its equivalent, and they won't be wronged to Al anon verse 160.
This is one of many ways
that the grace of God is manifest in the world. He allows one good deed to erase 10 evil deeds. And in that way, it becomes possible that the scale of our good deeds can outweigh our scale of evil deeds. This is the favorable law, without which, no one from humankind or the jinn game would ever enterprise. So after asking Allah for his guidance, because of his infinite knowledge, and his infinite power, governing all things, which we have to do so humbly, and not demanding, we are taught to request that Allah grant us help as a favor from his grace and mercy. For him, like a doctor there will occur there, for surely you are able, and I am not.
The reason why we're turning to Allah is due to the fact that he is the only true power in this universe, and everything else, which has power in the universe was given it by Allah. But Allah, Allah, Allah, and you know, and I don't know. The other reason is because whatever we know, was informed by God. We can't and don't know anything by ourselves. Everything we know is from the knowledge which Allah gifted us a lion form. This is a brand that when he created Adam, he taught Adam the knowledge of categorizing, that is naming everything.
Allah granted him that knowledge. It is not something which Adam deduced, or learned on his own through research. When one reads the history of scientific discoveries, in many cases, scientists while researching in particular areas, accidentally stumble over new discoveries regarding something else altogether. That is, they found things often, which they were not searching for, while failing to find what they were actually searching for. Many of the major discoveries of science were by accident. The classical example is that of Madame Curie, who died in 1934, who discovered the X rays of radium, which is so critical today. The use of X rays is such a standard procedure in all
branches of medicine that It's unthinkable of hospitals today, doing without it. How did you discover it? Was she searching for x rays to see under the human skin without having to cut it open? No. Instead, she had some exposed photographic film in her lab, along with some expose Radia.
And she accidentally put her hand between the to
while reaching for something else and to our great surprise, surprise, the bones of our hand appear
On the exposed film,
are the proverbial story of Sir Isaac Newton, sitting under the apple tree and an apple falling on his head, causing him to think about the idea of gravitation. So it said, Imagine the major principles of physics, how major principles of physics came out of an apple falling on his head. Today, the origin of the internet, which we can't live without, was also discovered by accident, during research to find the Higgs boson particle known as the God Particle, the most basic building block of the universe, all of the knowledge that we have, and the jinn have is from God. So in our prayers, we humble ourselves by recognizing that we don't know what is best for us ultimately, Allah
knows and we just don't know. And I llamando you
and you alone know the answer.
This is another of Allah's unique attributes here on knows the knowledge of the unseen. No one else knows or has the knowledge of what is in the womb of a mother in the beginning, what is in our nature, our future, the ancient unrecorded past, all of it is known only to Allah.
His knowledge is not in any way limited or restricted. So having humbled ourselves first by recognizing the guidance is from Allah alone. We're asking him for guidance based on his infinite knowledge and power.
We then mentioned what we have decided to do not two options asking him to choose one for us, we simply ask about what we have chose
Allahumma in kuntala, another
fed only fee Dini omachi, Rocky, but the armory, or Orla, if you know that this affair is good for my religion, my livelihood and the aftermath of my affairs.
When we asked the law about our choice, we first asked about what is most important.
We asked whether it is good for our religion, not for our business, family, children, etc. The prayer might be for
the purpose of a business deal. But we should always ask a law First, if it is good for us in our religion, because it may be good for our business, but bad for our religion. So first things should be First,
we have to put first what is most important in our lives. In the same way that in our daily prayers, we recite Surah Fatiha, the first chapter in which you recognize God alone, first, describing him I Rahmani Raheem, Maliki over deal.
Then we ask him to show us the right path. And then a set items.
This is what Allah teaches us.
As most important to ask for what is most important is guidance from Allah regarding what is good for us in our religion. Following that, we can then go through our livelihood and outcome of our affairs. Because what is good for us today may turn out to be bad or dangerous for us and our family tomorrow. So we ask not only about what is good for our livelihood, or our day to day existence, but we also ask that it not be harmful to us later on.
If the good outweighs the bad, and all these matters, then we ask a lot destined it for us
to do the holy warrior sera hooli, some Mubarak LiFi
when the Create for me, make it easy for me and bless me in it. So we ask a lot of blessing for us, to make it a part of our destiny, to create the circumstances for it to take place to make it easy for us and to bless us in it. That is we ask the Lord to give us his blessings in what we have chosen to do. On the other hand, we ask Allah for his protection. It is not good for us.
When when Quinta tala, another ama Sharon Lee feed in Yamanashi Rakim at the armory. But if you know that this affair is bad for my religion, my livelihood and the aftermath of my affairs, for serif who Annie was swiftly anew
Then turn it away from me and turn me away from it.
But if you know Oh Allah, what are we saying here?
If you know Oh Allah that this affair is bad for my religion and bad for my livelihood, for the results of my choice I have made down the line, then turn me away from it and turn my heart away from it. We ask Allah for two things. We not only asked a lot to take it away from us, but something may be taken away from us, but we still have our hearts addicted to it, clinging to it, because that is what we really wanted to do.
But if it was taken away from us,
our hearts would still be attached to it. So we will still regret feeling sad. So we may still try to chase it because our hearts are still attached to it. So we ask Allah not only to take it away from us, but to remove love from our heart for it. And dust in other words, otherwise, what normally are higher highs you can summarize the Navy and decree for me what is better, wherever it may be, and make me content with it. We ask a lot to destined for us what is better, whether it may be
wherever it may be, and make us pleased with it. Help us to accept it wholeheartedly. Here lies our greatest struggle. We're in a lot distance things which we don't like. And we are naturally not pleased with such a situation makes our lives wretched. wretched life is one that is not pleased with a loss destiny.
This is why Prophet Muhammad wa salam stressed that we have to put our faith and trust in Allah completely. For if we put our full trust in Allah will be pleased with whatever is destined for us. This is the correct faith.
that, how do we know which way to go?
As we said earlier, this particular supplication is not made, when we don't know what to do when we have choices. And we have not decided I'm one of them. Some people use these prayers under such circumstances, they expect an answer in their dreams or in the dreams of others, they expect that a sign is going to tell them which choice is good and which is evil, or sometimes is going to or something is going to happen by which they will be able to read into it some good or evil omens. Still, some others open the Quran at random. And wherever their fingers fall on the page, they recite the verses and interpret them in a good or bad
fashion. Or they add up the numbers as per numerology and then predict good and evil of the choices. As a Muslim. We don't believe in numerology, as we said before, we don't believe in good and bad omens, or unfortunate.
So this prayer is made, when we have decided on one of our choices, then we turn to Allah and ask him if this is the better choice to help us with it. And if it is not better than make it, then take it away from us. This is quite simple, and all that we basically have to do.
So after the prayer, we should go ahead and do what we decided to do. If we feel comfortable about our choice, and it works out easily, then it's a clear sign that we've made the right choice. But if we start to feel suspicious, restless, uncomfortable about and it's not working out easily, then that is a clear sign for us that it's not a good choice. A Lalo knows what is better for us. And we really don't know. We don't know the future. All we have is a little knowledge around us. Now. So as believers, it is for us to submit ourselves to the will of Allah, that is Islam submission to the will of God. Consequently, since this prayer is one path, which should be learned like a chapter
from the grind, it is a requirement on each and every one of us to get a hold of it, learn it, use it and pass it on to others.
asked question concerning is the Hara. How many times should this drive be recited?
The number of times or days or time of day this drive should be made has not been specified abroad.
Arsalan spoke about once in the narration of the Hadith. As such,
it is enough for us to do it once. Once we have done it. The Sunnah is complete, however if after doing it.
However, if after doing it we have doubts, we may make another choice and again do is the courage to seek Allah's guidance and our second choice. And if we still have the doubts, regarding our second choice, we can still make the do is to harder for a new choice. So as to how it can be done. Each time a choice is made, there is no limit as to the number of times that one may make is to harder, but just going and doing 10 is too hard. You have one thing to do and you make 10 is the hardest for it. No, this is not really from this book.
That is why the prophet SAW Selim instructed his companions to make this prayer in all of the affairs of our lives. The most important point is that it should be performed properly and regularly.
principle of in Bach, Paul, is to have fear where there is a warning. The Divine Names of Kadir or father in our study, contain direct warnings regarding the severity of allowance punishment for those rejecting rebel against an openly flout His laws, which have been revealed for the benefit of human guide. Those who both fully deny God's existence and attributed and attribute whatever goods they have gathered in this world to their own efforts are warned about the severity of his punishments, throughout the
plane confer to in other be less added. But if you deny my favorites, indeed, my punishment will be severe. The line denying a lot of favors includes denying his existence as atheists and theists do, as well as theists, who disobey God's revealed laws as a result of making their own democratic whims and desires, their ultimate God will legislate for them and whom they worship besides a law or along with a law, a law quoted in the Quran or item and Taka Illa who our Have you not seen the one who takes his desires as its God started for Congress 43 in this way, even money can become once God as the promised asylum also said dicer up the dinar what they're the worshipper of the dinar and the
deer, ham will always be miserable, accumulating and enjoying the materials of this world will not bring lasting happiness. It will bring
a temporary happiness, but like drugs it wears off and the emptiness of our lives will come back to haunt us. This is why so many people at the height of their careers having gathered millions and millions ended up committing suicide to the great amazement of their families, fans and admirers.
Truly accepting ally in our lives and worshiping Him alone requires us to be fundamentally grateful to him in times of success and patient in times of difficulty and trials. As the promises and unsaid a believer is a fair is a wonderful thing. All of his affair is good. That is not the case for anyone but they believe if good times come to him he is thankful. And thus it is good for him. And if bad times befall him he is patient, and thus it was good frame. If we're not thankful to Allah for the good in our lives, we will not be able to be patient and bad time strike. For what will we have to fall back for for comfort? Indeed, we will blame others around us and take out our
frustrations on them are blame ourselves and questions why? why we didn't do this, or in frustration or blame bad luck and commit suicide. Therefore our fear of Allah's displeasure, and its severe consequences should motivate us to be both grateful to Allah and all the various circumstances that we can show our gratitude to be patient with our laws, preordained decisions, the countless ways we can show patience.
calling on Allah using these names as we now end our session.

We will now shift to
the third portion of our session that have
questions and answers.
our internet, our sorry, our Instagram students.
But it should we do indeed Sundays.
This is a period when the good deeds have the greatest value. So whatever you consider to be a good deed, you can do it.
Santa Holly asks, How can we refute the person who says that Islam allows marital rape?
Well, it depends on what you mean by refute.
There is no marital rape in Islam.
So by saying that, there are those who attack Islam will say Islam allows marital rape, because if it doesn't recognize it, it means that if it happens,
what is the position of Islam? Well, the bottom line is that
a marriage is based on the man providing for the woman,
and what she is required to do is to obey. So much so that prompts are seldom said if the wife is working at the stove, and her husband calls her, she should leave what she's doing and come to him.
Then, where is there room for marital rape? I mean, if the wife is not accepted,
right, this arrangement,
you know, she's rebelling, then the question is, should the man force himself on her?
advice wise, we say No, you shouldn't. If it's reached this point, really, it's time to divorce. Let her go her way, and you go, you're weak.
But if he did force himself,
without harming her, that's one thing. Now if you saying he's 14, he's been going to be hitting her beating her everything else and then has sexual relations with her. Of course, that's evil, that's sinful, and he will be charged for that kind of harm.
But if it's not the time, it's just, he insists and forces her, you know, mentally, etc, to give in to him,
And he prefers to save his family, his marriage, rather than divorce her.
But the point we can mention to them is that marital rape only became a crime in the 90s.
So all the years before, it wasn't a crime. So how did it become a crime?
You know, originally crimes were what were identified in
the only book, I had the only Bible for Christians, it's all listed there.
But because they took the Holy Bible, threw it out. The Parliament made their decisions without any Holy Bible, then you end up in this state.
But it still took when they threw it out back in the 30s and 40s. It still took
how long for them to reach the point of declaring a man forcing himself and his wife to be a crime
all the way
Till the 90s.
So, it's obvious that
this is according to
democratic choices made by some countries, there are many countries on the earth that don't hold it to be raped. So what is it? Is it rape? Or is it not rape?
So it's not just Islam. There are other countries which are not Muslim countries, so don't consider it to be a crime.
There's no such thing on their levels. So it's not just Islam.
with that numerous reports about numerous karamat which happened in the lives of the Sahaba can it still happen today? And is it alright to ask Allah for kurama I mean, that is like miraculous happenings.
There are reports, you know, I'm
not like this coming out of the earth and, you know, the sun setting in the west or nothing of that nature. But, you know, some incidences where they're able to cross over rivers that
normally would not have been able to cross over.
So, a few incidents report.
And all around the world.
There are incidents every year that happened, which may be clock called miraculous, because there was no way this was supposed to happen. So
could happen anytime,
summer, Zubair asked, What is the difference between civilization and modernization. Some people in Europe and some wealthy families are regarded as civilized compared to other societies were less advanced. Well, civilization is
the organization of a society to make it civil, that people are not killing each other. Now, there are rules, etc, government government governing the society, which protect its citizens. That's a civilization, modernization is improvement of things. As time goes on.
They're not one on the same,
though, modernization tends to happen along with advances in civilization.
it is true I think, though, that it's generally presented, that Western nations are civilized and the other nations are uncivilized. Of course, that's not what's going on in the West, you know, where they have removed. incense incest, from the law books.
Were in Europe, many countries of Europe, a man can marry his mother, or can have sex or not even married, have sexual relations with his mother, his sister and his daughter?
Is that civilized?
That is uncivilized. That is pure and clear evidence of a lack of civilization.
A man asks, Is there a concept of taxation in Islam?
If not, what is the solution? What solution does Islam provide for financing governments? Now, the element of taxation can be set by the head of state,
the ruler where there is a need
where there is a need for additional income, over and above what is collected in the battle model or
concessions which are given to companies to work, you know, in the seas, working on the land, digging under the ground, take care of minerals and things like this, you know, requiring some element of taxation on it, you know,
or we can call it paying Zakat on it.
That is permissible for the government's to utilize to find additional sources of income for its own
Dr. Dillard, in your experience, what are the actions or habits that makes a person fail in this life? The next? Oh,
that's a whole lecture.
As much as I'd like to
answer your question, it's
a bit too vast,
but we can say in general,
which will cause failure in this life and the next, our beliefs against Islam, the teachings of Islam, against the teachings of God,
actions which go against the teachings of God.
So whatever action is out there, which goes against
laws of God, that ultimately is going to cause failure, that person in this life and or the next
let's see how videos, how should one recites well Fatiha in the third and fourth units of prayer in congregation when the Imam does not give enough time, and goes into the core quickly? Can we quickly recite whether you go into the core, when the mom goes into the core, as the prophet SAW said, That said, the mom was set to be followed. So if he says Allahu Akbar, then all of you should say a law. What?
goes into record, that all of you should go to the court and not allowed to stay back to say, I'm going to finish off my
iPod? or whatever? Oh, you follow the amount?
When he says semi, Allahu lumen hamidah. You're supposed to say, Robin, like a hand. You're supposed to say, but most people don't. Or many people don't.
They say we're saying it than I had. But that's not what the browser's said, when he said, is it Kaberle a man for kabiru?
If the mom says a lot of work, work.
And he said, You all should say a lot of work, but
that's in your head. The text doesn't imply that at all. This is just become common practices in some parts of the world. So I advise you to revive this sooner and say a lot better when the man says, Well, you don't have to compete with the AMA. The mountains is a lot
lower before you know, you don't have to go all the way there. You just say a lot but audibly you can hear it.
asks, people read some aisles of Quran and blow on clothes and tie it around their necks, saying that the chronic IR has the power to cure. claim that it's like a rokeya nonsense. It's total nonsense. Don't do it, encourage people not to do it.
says studies have compared pornography to hard drugs. And that's why it's extremely difficult for addicts to overcome it. How can we fight this drug?
pornography, I guess?
Well, you know, this is the relative capacity, meaning that the difficulty that it takes for one to get out of it, you know,
on another level, is
similar to the difficulty that a drug addict has to
give up drugs, but in reality, it's not the one who's giving up drugs, he goes into, you know,
state of reaction, his body reacts, his whole body starts you know, craving this thing and, you know, causes them to form at the mouth and please don't
Compare that to a person giving up pornography. Maybe psychologically, it's a struggle for him, etc. But it's not like, you know, a person who
has to give up drugs.
side side asks, what is the right way to fast alpha for us? We're out of Makkah, and we have a different time zone, follow Mecca.
Question number 10.
What is the cure for excessive wasp wasp?
Muslims were laughing and living carefree lives? Do they have regrets in their heart? Some of them do. Some of them don't.
Who knows? Allah knows.
In terms of excessive Westwater, which you know, stops you from completing your will do
then it's better you have somebody beside you, who can remind you that you have completed your actions.
And if you pray, and you're having difficulty forgetting the record and let somebody Pray along with you, you can pray along with somebody. So now, we allowed somebody
della chef asks, If a person has suffered a stroke, because of it, you can remember beside the car of Salah properly, what is required of them for this allowed to be valid? How can they offer it?
Do the best you can.
What you're not able to do a law will excuse you
call it solid? I heard that it is not permissive for a woman to shave or cut her hair short in Islam. Is this true? According to standard law?
Well, she's covering her head when she goes out. So whether she has shaved her head or she hasn't shaved her head? Well, no.
There's nothing actually which forbids her. Although, for people completing Hajj process Allah advised women to take, you know, an inch or two from their plot plus right there is plotted from the end an inch or two.
They can cut, they don't have to shave their heads as men do.
But he didn't actually say it is haram to do so forbidden to do so. He just gave that general advice.
So even so that's on hatch, outside of hedge. Of course, what is forbidden for the woman in terms of cutting her hair is that she looks like a man. And she's exposing herself looking like a man you know, in her dress, etc. This is included. So that's what would not be permissible.
question here is what
are my thoughts asked me on a woman seeking to become a judge, Islamic judge
I don't know
of anything which forbids it.
We can only say that. Traditionally, historically,
parties have been men.
But does that mean that a party could never be a woman?
I don't have evidence to say yay or nay. So if there's no clear evidence, where the kadhi
has to be a man and forbidden for women, then the conclusion would be that it is permissible for a woman to seek to be a an Islamic judge.
Okay, that ends our session. barakallahu li comm
