00:04:06--> 00:04:07

The main part of our session

00:04:09--> 00:04:11

Baraka lafay calm

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

in which

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

we'll be looking at

00:04:22--> 00:04:22

session

00:04:24--> 00:04:27

52 A

00:04:30--> 00:04:32

or part one

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

in sha Allah.

00:04:42--> 00:04:44

The name that we'll be covering

00:04:45--> 00:04:47

is our one

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

just bear with

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

me for a second.

00:05:18--> 00:05:21

So, session 52 at

00:05:24--> 00:05:25

the beginning,

00:05:26--> 00:05:28

just name number 75.

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

Part One

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

in terms of Quranic location,

00:05:36--> 00:05:41

the Divine Name on our wall is mentioned only in one place in the

00:05:44--> 00:05:45

world our world

00:05:47--> 00:05:51

via hero will Barton wahoo, equally Shay in Ali,

00:05:53--> 00:06:04

he is the first and the last, the outer and the inner. And he has knowledge of all things. So we're all headed, verse number three

00:06:05--> 00:06:08

in terms of meaning, linguistically,

00:06:09--> 00:06:12

our will is on the pattern of

00:06:15--> 00:06:18

coming from the trilateral route Hamza,

00:06:19--> 00:06:21

while lamb

00:06:23--> 00:06:26

and I will known is its variable. Now,

00:06:27--> 00:06:35

it has three main meanings. The first meaning is to be first or to be before

00:06:37--> 00:06:43

the second meaning is to come back to or to return. And the third meaning is to be foremost.

00:06:45--> 00:06:56

This route appears some 170 times in the prime in four different derived forms.

00:06:57--> 00:07:02

Examples of these forms can be seen in alula. The first

00:07:03--> 00:07:06

as well as Yeah, Ollie,

00:07:07--> 00:07:08

oh, men,

00:07:09--> 00:07:18

alley family of people love our Lena, the forefathers, and

00:07:20--> 00:07:24

that we knew who its interpretation.

00:07:27--> 00:07:34

linguistically, an owl means the one who advances or proceeds others.

00:07:35--> 00:07:39

This was the explanation given by as a judge.

00:07:41--> 00:07:50

The first notice of a law owl means the one whose existence has no beginning. This was the explanation of I'll be happy

00:07:51--> 00:08:07

and one who existed before anything and everything without any limit of beginning. This was the explanation of injury or a tabari, the famous commentator of the Quran.

00:08:08--> 00:08:35

Lawwell deserves to be the first since he existed when there was nothing before him or with him. And this was the explanation given by a hot body. Abu huraira quoted the prophet SAW Salah saying the following in his supplications prior to sleep Allahumma Antal owl, Falaise of oblah cache

00:08:37--> 00:08:42

or LA law, you are the first and there is nothing before you

00:08:43--> 00:09:00

relative to Allah. Being an owl means that he is the first before whom nothing existed is the one who existed before anything else. That is why he is the first

00:09:01--> 00:09:06

He is the One whose existence does not have a beginning.

00:09:07--> 00:09:38

alibi explained. And Ronnie bin Hussein one of the companions of the prophets I seldom go to the prophet SAW Selim as reiterating a loss our Walia as a state of being an owl. Same kind of long, Wladimir Khun che on nyro Allah was and there was nothing besides Him, or rather even summit now there are the components of the process. And then

00:09:39--> 00:09:49

he quoted the process LMS saying in our llama Halak Allahu Alem The first thing Allah created was the pen.

00:09:52--> 00:09:56

pal Allahu octo and he told it to write

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

on Arabic

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

madda up to it asked,

00:10:05--> 00:10:08

oh my lord, what should I write

00:10:09--> 00:10:16

all up to Nakamura coolessay had Docomo sa

00:10:17--> 00:10:18

had data for masa,

00:10:20--> 00:10:28

they told me to write down what is decreed about everything until the last hour comes

00:10:30--> 00:10:36

in terms of application of the name according to open bottles for principles

00:10:38--> 00:10:44

Principle number one, which was and is to adopt where applicable,

00:10:45--> 00:11:07

the Divine Name and our well maybe adopted and applied in two basic ways. The first is to make a law number one in our lives. And the second way is to strive to be number one, in seeking goodness and righteousness in our own lives.

00:11:10--> 00:11:50

So making a law number one, we make a lot of our the most important element of our lives by loving him more than anyone or anything in this life. We also do so by loving those whom he loves. About the Companion of the prophet SAW Selim related at the process, Allah taught his companions to grow their love of Allah by regularly supplicating using the DA of Prophet dahoud saying, along my journey as a Luca hogback a hobo man Herberman your hymnbook

00:11:52--> 00:12:07

philomel alarie uban limani hogback Allahumma jaal hogback Hubba aleja enough see what Ali wamena Alma l Barrett,

00:12:09--> 00:12:14

Allah, allow me to love you and to love those who love you.

00:12:15--> 00:12:28

And to love whatsoever brings me closer to you and to your love. And make your love more precious to me, then cold water to the thirsty.

00:12:29--> 00:12:37

This vlog clarifies both, the fact that the most important characteristic we can strive for in this life

00:12:38--> 00:12:39

is the love of Allah.

00:12:40--> 00:12:47

But also the fact that an integral part of loving Allah is loving those who he loves.

00:12:48--> 00:13:06

The reason being that Allah only loves the righteous. So by loving and emulating them, and by seeking to be around them, we will naturally increase in righteousness. And that is a part of loving whatever brings us closer to the love of Allah.

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

And that way the righteous become

00:13:11--> 00:13:15

the tangible representations of a laws love in this life.

00:13:17--> 00:13:33

They begin with the prophets of Allah, which is why the true faith in the final message of Islam is not only on the love of Allah, but also on loving the last messenger of Allah.

00:13:35--> 00:14:00

The Divine Name of our world, first and foremost may be applied in our lives by increasing our love of Allah, while seeking to achieve the lofty standards set by law for the true believers regarding their love of him. The highest standard of love can be found in the process and and statement quoted by Abu huraira by the one in whose hand my soul lives,

00:14:01--> 00:14:11

none of us fully believed, until I become more beloved to him or her than their father, son, and all people I have

00:14:12--> 00:14:20

had a good akuna Hubba alaihe Meanwhile, he will validate he when NASA Jemaine

00:14:21--> 00:14:31

thus the fullness of faith is completely dependent on making a line His Messenger, the most important loves of our lives.

00:14:32--> 00:14:36

Without it, our faith remains deficient and crippled.

00:14:37--> 00:14:43

Our level of belief is reduced to mere words and false hopes.

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

The sweetness of faith, which brings a knowing smile to the face of the believers, even in the most difficult of times, and the most trying of times, will never be attained without it

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

Anna Sydney Malik was quoted, quoted the province Arsalan as saying,

00:15:06--> 00:15:12

whoever possesses the following three qualities will taste the sweetness of faith.

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

Number one,

00:15:16--> 00:15:20

one to whom Allah and His messenger is dearer than anything else.

00:15:22--> 00:15:26

Number two, one who loves the worshiper only for Allah sake.

00:15:27--> 00:15:34

Number three, one who hates to revert to disbelief after Allah has saved him from it,

00:15:35--> 00:15:38

the way he hates to be thrown in the fire.

00:15:39--> 00:15:48

Because obedience to the Messenger of Allah is equivalent to obedience to Allah. Loving the Messenger of Allah becomes a true expression of loving Allah.

00:15:49--> 00:16:00

May you tell Rasul Allah said, For God, Allah, whoever obeys the messenger has obeyed Allah to run the servers at

00:16:02--> 00:16:10

a comprehensive definition was recorded by the 14th century theologian, even taymiyah.

00:16:11--> 00:16:36

wrote, people have discussed at length about marhaba that is, love love of Allah. Its causes its signs, its fruits, it supports and its rulings. However, the most comprehensive definition of what has been said about this is what abubaker al Qahtani related regarding alginate

00:16:39--> 00:16:43

was from the 10th century, early 10th century.

00:16:44--> 00:17:00

Welcome, nakatani said a discussion about muhabba law, the law took place in Makkah, during the pilgrimage season, the senior chefs were present, spoke about this topic. And then they asked alginate was the youngest among them.

00:17:01--> 00:17:08

And he said, Oh, they said to him, What do you say, oh, Iraqi, I call him because he was from Iraq.

00:17:10--> 00:17:23

So alginate lowered his head, and with tears streaming down his cheeks, he said, a servant of Allah should first overcome the evil tendencies of his soul.

00:17:25--> 00:17:31

And we continuously in remembrance of his Lord, by establishing the rights of his Lord,

00:17:32--> 00:17:40

he should focus on Allah with his heart to such a degree, that the light of fear would set his heart ablaze.

00:17:42--> 00:18:10

And while drinking from the vessel of pure love of Allah, certain hidden realities would be unveiled for him. So that when he talks, it is due to Allah. And it is from Allah. When he moves, it is by the command of Allah. And when he is still and serene, it is also from Allah, He belongs to Allah is living for a law, and the law is with him.

00:18:11--> 00:18:24

Upon hearing these words, the chef's all started crying, and one of them said, there's nothing left to add to that. May Allah reward you, or crown of the knowledgeable,

00:18:27--> 00:18:30

lower lies and exceptional especial

00:18:32--> 00:18:39

that love of Allah should occupy our hearts and take complete possession of it,

00:18:40--> 00:19:08

but does not seize it entirely. It should at least outweigh the love of other things. All other things. Allah describes the idea of believers in terms of mutual love, saying, for Sofia, Tila will be combing your hair boom for your head buena. Allah will soon replace you with the people who loves him and he loves them.

00:19:10--> 00:19:13

Lhasa number three from the eighth century

00:19:16--> 00:19:17

among the tabular been

00:19:18--> 00:19:23

used to say he who truly knows the law loves him.

00:19:26--> 00:19:29

So if we don't feel that love,

00:19:30--> 00:19:36

we don't have a sense of that love, then it means we don't truly know along

00:19:37--> 00:19:46

in terms of reasons for loving Allah, The first and most basic reason is due to human beings love for themselves

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

and their own successful existence, which they treasure above all else. This self love should lead them directly to loving along because they're

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

very existence, and attributes are all gifts from Allah is he was grace and kindness brought human beings from behind the curtain of non existence, onto the visible world stage of existence beings and things.

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

Human beings, preservation and fulfillment of the goals of this life and the next are entirely dependent upon the laws, mercy and grace.

00:20:31--> 00:20:40

It would be very strange that one would take refuge from the heat of the sun, under the shadow of a tree and not be grateful for the tree

00:20:41--> 00:20:45

without which, there wouldn't be no shadow at all.

00:20:46--> 00:20:55

In precisely the same way, we're not for a law human beings would not have any attributes, nor would they exist at all.

00:20:57--> 00:21:13

Second reason for loving allies based on human nature, human beings naturally love their benefactors. And in truth, their only benefactor is a law for whatever kindness man receives from fellow human creatures,

00:21:15--> 00:21:20

is due to the immediate intervention of Allah.

00:21:24--> 00:21:30

Whatever the motive, that may have prompted, the kindness he received from others,

00:21:31--> 00:21:40

is the one Allah is the one who said the causes of that motive at work.

00:21:42--> 00:21:48

In terms of the science, that we love a lot, because,

00:21:49--> 00:21:54

again, because this is not an easy topic.

00:21:56--> 00:21:58

And people wander

00:21:59--> 00:22:01

after doing as much as they could

00:22:04--> 00:22:07

have they achieved this? Do they truly lamella

00:22:11--> 00:22:20

there must be science, as there are for everything. There are science, visible, Audible, tangible.

00:22:21--> 00:22:24

Most people who believe in God, claim to love him.

00:22:26--> 00:22:32

However, they are science by which we can determine the genuineness of our professed love.

00:22:34--> 00:22:46

If an instant introspection, we fail to exhibit them. We then know what we need to work on, to make our claim as real as can be.

00:22:47--> 00:22:51

The first sign of a genuine pneus of our love of the law

00:22:52--> 00:22:55

is that we do not dislike the thought of death.

00:22:57--> 00:23:03

No true friend, shies away from leaving to meet a dear and beloved friend.

00:23:05--> 00:23:21

companion Abu Musa lashari narrated the the prophets Allah and said, Man a hub balika Allah, a humble Allahu Nipa whoever wishes to meet Allah, Allah wishes to meet him.

00:23:22--> 00:23:37

It is however true that one who sincerely loves the law may shrink away from the thought of death, the thought of dying before he or she is properly prepared to meet their beloved one in the next world.

00:23:38--> 00:24:04

That is natural. Allah also described his close friends Saudia, as those who dislike dying due to their desire to do more good deeds, promise Our solemn quoted Allah saying the Hadees Pudsey. I do not hesitate to do anything more than my hesitation to take the soul of a believer who dislikes there, and I dislike this disappointing him.

00:24:06--> 00:24:08

But for those who don't.

00:24:20--> 00:24:37

Regarding them, the prophet SAW Selim was quoted by Arvada, and Ayesha is saying, woman carry her Nipa Allah he carry how long only ca and whoever hates to meet the law. Allah hates to meet in.

00:24:39--> 00:24:51

The second sign of genuineness genuine ness of our love for Allah is that we are always willing to sacrifice our own will, in order to fulfill our laws will.

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

Like prophet Abraham's demonstration of complete submission to a laws will bias preparedness to sign

00:25:00--> 00:25:22

If I see his only son, when Allah instructed it, his submission superseded human logic and reason, which screamed injustice, as his son had done no wrong, and therefore his instruction, and or Furthermore, the instruction which had come to him, came to him in a dream.

00:25:23--> 00:25:36

However, Prophet Abraham did not hesitate, being certain that it was revelation. This is how revelation came to the prophets in the form of a dream.

00:25:38--> 00:25:53

began, processor Lam told us that revelation began in the form of true dreams. So the dreams of the prophets are in fact revelation are not the ramblings of their mind or anything else.

00:25:54--> 00:26:10

However, Prophet Abraham did not hesitate, being certain that it was revelation, based on his complete trust in the law, built on his total love of Allah, what saved him from being burnt alive by his own people?

00:26:11--> 00:26:20

This is the same type of submission as the loss in the well known Hadith narrated by an even Vitaly him, in which he said,

00:26:21--> 00:26:25

Locanda de novo Rai lagana as follows hoffy

00:26:27--> 00:26:29

Allah bill Murphy,

00:26:30--> 00:26:36

min Allah. If the religion were based solely on logic and reason, opinion,

00:26:38--> 00:26:44

wiping the bottom of the sock during lieu would be more appropriate than the top.

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

But

00:26:48--> 00:26:55

well kodra it Rasool Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yam sobre la da Haiti houfy

00:26:57--> 00:27:05

but I saw the Messenger of Allah wipe the upper part of his socks, and not the bottom

00:27:08--> 00:27:23

point of note here, for those who write both the top and bottom of their socks during Whoo, that practice has no sound basis. It's wiping up the top, as alumina Vitaly narrated to us.

00:27:25--> 00:27:52

submission and sacrifice of our wills to our laws will is complete obedience to His divine commandments or the commandments of His Messenger, as they are equivalent to the commandments of Allah. Allah stated that in no uncertain terms, well my utl Rasool Allah, whoever amazed the messenger has obeyed the law to run the servers at

00:27:53--> 00:28:00

doing so, we should cling on firmly to whatever brings us closer to him

00:28:03--> 00:28:08

and should shun and avoid all the distances us from Allah.

00:28:10--> 00:28:33

the totality of what brings us closer can be found in the prophet SAW Selim Sunnah as he Prophet Mohammed Al Salam stated, Mata Dr. Shay and your caribou Illa Allah II Illa Amar to combi I have not left anything which will bring you closer to Allah without instructing you to do it.

00:28:35--> 00:28:53

Consequently, celebra celebrating the birthday of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the moment which many people feel will bring them closer to Allah won't bring them closer, as the prophet SAW solemn, did not instruct that it be done.

00:28:55--> 00:28:59

In fact, like the celebration of Jesus's birth,

00:29:00--> 00:29:06

Christmas, the celebration of Prophet the prophet SAW Solomon's birthday wasn't

00:29:07--> 00:29:12

introduced until almost 400 years after the demise of the profits.

00:29:14--> 00:29:18

And this took place in the fatimid Shiites state in Egypt.

00:29:20--> 00:29:21

The 40 minutes

00:29:22--> 00:29:45

this celebration is clearly an imitation of Christmas among Christians. During the maolin celebrations, music is often played, accompanied by dancing. poems are sung in exaggerated praise of the prophet SAW Salah often containing verses in which some of our last attributes are actually given to the prophet SAW.

00:29:47--> 00:29:58

For example, the most popular poem from our lives is that of casita to murder. The owner of the club by Alba CLT from the 13th century.

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

It contains

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

versus with shidduch inter woven in them almost theory wrote

00:30:08--> 00:30:11

for an amine judical dunia

00:30:43--> 00:30:46

and the knowledge of the tablet

00:30:47--> 00:30:50

and the pen is a part of your knowledge

00:30:55--> 00:31:03

for in them in Judaica dounia What do raha amin Aloo Mecca Elmo lo que El Pollo.

00:31:05--> 00:31:24

This line of poetry is an expression of major shark, because it describes this world and the next as being a gift, representing only a part of the profit side salams generosity in nearly lie, or in nyla here rajguru

00:31:26--> 00:31:50

This implies that Allah has no part in them. And in the second half of the verse, and we'll see describes the knowledge of what is in the law hilma who's the protected tablet in which Allah had everything that's been written, that that was only a part of the prophets knowledge, thereby leaving nothing for law.

00:31:51--> 00:31:53

When in fact, the only knowledge

00:31:54--> 00:31:59

only Allah has knowledge of all that is in the protected tablet.

00:32:01--> 00:32:03

Everything that was and would be

00:32:05--> 00:32:36

consequently submission of our wills to Allah. As a clear demonstration of the sincerity of our love for Allah requires us to avoid any form of innovation in the religious teachings brought by the last messenger. This point was repeatedly, regularly with repeated regularly in the speeches, which the province on Sunday gave to his followers. Jabir ibn Abdullah religion in the province Our solemn regularly said in his footballs

00:32:38--> 00:32:44

in Asda, Alhaji thickie tabula Indeed, the most truthful word is the book of Allah.

00:32:46--> 00:32:52

Well, accidental hadI had you Mohammedan and the best source of guidance is the guidance of Mohammed

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

was

00:32:57--> 00:33:02

a column of desert in beta akula did with the attend Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Allah in

00:33:04--> 00:33:09

the worst of all affairs in religion are those that are newly invented.

00:33:11--> 00:33:24

For every newly invented matter is an heretical innovation and every innovation is misguidance. And every misguidance ultimately ends up in the Hellfire

00:33:25--> 00:33:26

not

00:33:27--> 00:33:38

once frequent commission of sins is not proof that one does not love a lot at all. But it's proof that we do not love them with our whole heart.

00:33:40--> 00:33:42

For them even a

00:33:43--> 00:33:45

ninth century

00:33:46--> 00:34:06

static Muslim aesthetic, once advised, if anyone asks you whether you love Allah, keep silent. Four, if you say I do not love him, you are an unbeliever. And if you say I do, your bad deeds, will likely contradict your claim.

00:34:08--> 00:34:27

The third sign of genuineness of our love for law is that the remembrance of Allah always remains fresh in our hearts. For whatever one loves, one constantly remembers. And if that love is strong, one would never forget it.

00:34:28--> 00:34:32

That is achieved by regularly remembering a lot of the law have been

00:34:34--> 00:34:46

reported a man said, O Messenger of Allah. The laws of Islam are too many for me. So tell me something I can hold on to rasa Sallam said to him,

00:34:47--> 00:34:57

liars annuli sanuk what Ben mean? decorilla keep your tongue moist, with the remembrance of Allah.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

The prophet SAW Selim taught his

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

companions and followers supplications for every daily act and occasion

00:35:08--> 00:35:11

all of which contain words the remembrance of Allah.

00:35:15--> 00:35:24

We have books which are circulating and amongst the oma. Where these daily supplications have been gathered.

00:35:26--> 00:35:32

The fortress of the Muslims, probably the most well known one today.

00:35:34--> 00:35:43

One focused on these various supplications they serve to keep us mindful of Allah and build our love for him.

00:35:45--> 00:35:59

As Allah said into our rod, verse 28, those who have faith and whose hearts find peace in the remembrance of Allah, Allah Nina aminata, my in Nakuru boom, decree LA

00:36:00--> 00:36:07

is only in the remembrance of Allah that hearts find rest. Allah be decree la he took my Indian food.

00:36:08--> 00:36:14

The fourth sign of genuineness of our love for LA is that we will love to read the plan.

00:36:16--> 00:36:35

As it is the word of Allah revealed to his last prophet for the guidance of humankind. In fact, if our love is really strong, it will encompass the whole of our last creation. For if we love anyone, we will also love their works.

00:36:36--> 00:37:10

However, the Quran stands out as it is a last direct communication to humankind. It is the final text of divine revelation of guidance to humankind in the Djinn we should love to read it because it was revealed for our personal benefit provides the basic set of directions for us to navigate our life in this world. However, it is most unusual among books, as it doesn't follow the usual pattern of books at all.

00:37:13--> 00:37:19

People who are used to books that we have in society, whether it's

00:37:21--> 00:37:23

fiction books or

00:37:24--> 00:37:39

fact factual books, etc. They follow patterns. But the Quran doesn't seem to follow whether fiction or nonfiction, the patterns found in those books are not found.

00:37:41--> 00:37:42

There is no introduction.

00:37:46--> 00:37:52

Normally, you pick up a book, science book, whatever, there'll be an introduction explaining what the books gonna be a month.

00:37:53--> 00:38:33

If you are reading a novel, The novel introduces you to the topic, but the problem there is no introduction, no explanation of the subject, and no conclusion. It is not restricted to historical facts, problems or philosophy, facts of science or social laws, all found woven together without apparent connection or links. subjects are introduced without background information. historical events are not mentioned in chronological order. new topics crop up in the middle of others, and the speaker and those spoken to change direction without forewarning.

00:38:34--> 00:38:42

These techniques are now becoming more and more common in movies and written works. But that's not how people wrote before.

00:38:44--> 00:39:06

However, for those used to the traditional format of books, religious and otherwise, who don't understand the subject matter and theme of the grant, it appears disorganized, confused and haphazard. As some critics have said, No one is aware that the subject matter of the Quran is humankind, and our relationship to God,

00:39:07--> 00:39:23

to ourselves and to the rest of creation, it starts to become clear. And if we further realize that the aim of the Quran is to invite human beings to the right way of dealing with the Creator, with ourselves and with creation

00:39:25--> 00:39:27

becomes even clearer.

00:39:28--> 00:39:56

And furthermore, it becomes clear that the main theme of the Quran is that God alone deserves worship, and that human beings should submit to God's laws in their personal lives and their public lives and with the rest of creation. Allah will make the Quran crystal clear and organized for us. If we can understand that,

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

for many Muslims on the other hand

00:40:01--> 00:40:09

reading the Quran is a religious ritual done for Baraka, earning blessings and loving the Quran consists of joining

00:40:11--> 00:40:27

a variety of different acts related to it, whether wrapping it up kissing it, putting it on the highest shelf, not putting anything on top of etc, or simply enjoying its recitation by skill reciters.

00:40:29--> 00:40:33

But that's not what the Quran was revealed for.

00:40:35--> 00:40:40

The fourth sign of genuine nessa my love for law is that worship becomes easy.

00:40:42--> 00:40:49

a righteous man once said, over a span of 30 years, I performed my night devotions with great difficulty.

00:40:50--> 00:40:54

But during the course of the next 30 years, they became a delight.

00:40:56--> 00:41:07

When love over lies complete, no joy is equal to the joy of worship, as the promise or Salam used to say to belong, yeah, Milan, alchemy, Sala.

00:41:08--> 00:41:14

biha. ob Lal, make the call the apama for prayer.

00:41:16--> 00:41:17

Give us comfort with it.

00:41:19--> 00:41:23

If the prayer is tedious and drudgery, if we find it this way,

00:41:24--> 00:41:41

a burden which we need to remove from our backs just weighing down on us. I love for allies deficient and our prayers are merely hollow rituals, to build our love, for worship.

00:41:43--> 00:41:44

We have to

00:41:45--> 00:41:46

work on it.

00:41:47--> 00:41:57

As the individual said, the first 30 years was difficult. But in the next 30 it became a delight that

00:41:59--> 00:42:11

worship, worshiping Of course, properly, will in time, build our love that worship, it's realities will become real for us.

00:42:13--> 00:42:15

The fifth sign of genuineness

00:42:16--> 00:42:17

of our love for Allah

00:42:19--> 00:42:27

is that one loves those who obey Allah and dislikes those who disbelieve in him and disobey.

00:42:28--> 00:42:43

Allah said, you will not find the people who believe in Allah and the Last Day having deep affection for those who oppose Allah and His messenger. Even if there were their fathers or their sons or their brothers or the Kindred.

00:42:44--> 00:42:53

Those he has this decreed within their hearts faith and supported them with the spirit from him.

00:42:56--> 00:43:16

This doesn't mean that we should fundamentally hate or dislike our non Muslim relatives and friends. And some of the Muslims actually understood that in case one case where wife of the process alum, when

00:43:18--> 00:43:23

her mother came to visit, her mother was a big and get the visitor from Mecca. While they were in Medina.

00:43:25--> 00:43:28

She was shy to bring her into the home.

00:43:30--> 00:43:47

And it was the prophet SAW Selim who had to clarify for her that this is your mother, you just you have to, while not necessarily accepting her beliefs, or rejecting her beliefs, you still have to treat her

00:43:49--> 00:43:50

in a loving way.

00:43:53--> 00:43:54

This doesn't mean

00:43:55--> 00:43:58

that on the other hand, we go overboard

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

and we end up loving our relatives who are non Muslims who dislike Islam etc. More than we love our fellow Muslims. Our fellow Muslims should be closer to us

00:44:14--> 00:44:22

in love, in our feelings, then our non Muslim relatives

00:44:25--> 00:44:28

putting a lot first as the creator.

00:44:30--> 00:44:39

acceptance of the uniqueness of a lot being the only creator solidifies the foundation of our faith and the belief in God.

00:44:42--> 00:44:53

Most verses of the Quran are a reminder for those who already believe in God. However, there are concepts of God may be distorted in one way or another.

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

So the vast majority of verses remind human beings of a law as the

00:45:01--> 00:45:05

and clarify for them, how to praise and be thankful to him.

00:45:06--> 00:45:18

However, there are a few Quranic verses dedicated to the atheists, who have always been a minority of human beings, which logically prove them wrong.

00:45:19--> 00:45:37

Following two verses from Surah tour is one of them, verses 35 and 36. I'm Holly Coleman ready shayan I'm home we'll call it Boone. Oh, hello, summer watching alarm, bell home, bell ly up noon,

00:45:41--> 00:45:49

where they created from nothing, or did they create themselves? Or did they create the heavens in the earth? Indeed, they are uncertain.

00:45:51--> 00:46:06

I'm calling for me in the very shape where they created from nothing, or by nothing. This proposal violates basic reason, something cannot come from nothing. And nothing by itself cannot create something

00:46:09--> 00:46:12

I'm hoping call upon or did they create themselves.

00:46:13--> 00:46:21

Here humans created themselves. This is also an illogical and self contradictory proposition.

00:46:22--> 00:46:27

They obviously did not create themselves. To create oneself one already

00:46:28--> 00:46:30

one must already exist.

00:46:31--> 00:46:36

In which case, one cannot create a self which already exists.

00:46:37--> 00:46:43

On the other hand, for one to be created, one must first not exist.

00:46:44--> 00:46:51

If one didn't exist, one would not have the ability to create. So

00:46:52--> 00:46:53

that's definitely out.

00:46:54--> 00:47:02

Um, Calico, somehow it will buy the home lie up known, or did they create the heavens and the earth?

00:47:06--> 00:47:08

Indeed, they are uncertain.

00:47:11--> 00:47:27

Did humans create the universe, this is totally preposterous. Not only couldn't they create themselves, they couldn't possibly have created the universe, which is why they invented Gods as creators of various parts of the universe.

00:47:29--> 00:47:35

So the only option left is that they were created by something already created,

00:47:36--> 00:48:05

or that it already existed. Now this seems like a possibility, as the already created thing, could then create others, or at least replicate itself, as it is observable in the world around us. However, if we go back in time, the number of created creators gets less and less until we reach the very first created creator.

00:48:07--> 00:48:12

As that first creative being couldn't have been created by another creative being.

00:48:14--> 00:48:18

Otherwise, it wouldn't be the first creative thing.

00:48:20--> 00:48:41

If it wasn't the first creative being, and the one who created it also wasn't, and so on and so forth, it would imply an infinite regression of causes, which ultimately means that human beings would not exist. our very existence tells us that

00:48:43--> 00:48:45

the first creation

00:48:47--> 00:48:49

had to be by

00:48:50--> 00:48:56

one a being who was not himself created.

00:48:58--> 00:49:17

In other words, if human existence is preceded by an infinite number of causes, requiring an infinite amount of time to take place, it's the same as saying it will never take place. human existence thus becomes impossible. The Greek philosopher Aristotle, argued similarly with

00:49:18--> 00:49:28

using that argument that infinite regression of cause and effect was impossible. Like the line of dominoes, set up

00:49:30--> 00:49:35

waiting to fall we've all seen them falling and creating all kinds of patterns.

00:49:37--> 00:49:39

One falling after the other.

00:49:41--> 00:49:53

If that, that set of dominoes, which have been arranged that first domino, if it doesn't fall, then none of the rest will fall.

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

And if what was before it was a domino

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

Then it wouldn't change the situation. What was before it which caused that first domino to cause fall had to be

00:50:09--> 00:50:13

one who was not a domino waiting to be pushed,

00:50:14--> 00:50:21

there has to be something or someone was not the domino to start the process going, otherwise, it will never happen.

00:50:22--> 00:51:03

The only solution to solve this problem is accepting that a non created being created human beings, as well as the rest of the universe comprised of created things. The promise, Arsalan himself affirmed that a lot of the uncreated creator existed alone, before everything else was created. I'm wrong even for saying, go to the process, Allah saying to some people from Yemen, would ask them about the beginning of creation. He said, first of all, there was nothing but Allah can Allahu wa lamea can say one way arrow.

00:51:05--> 00:51:14

And then he created his throne above the water. And he wrote everything in the book, the heavens and created the heavens and the earth.

00:51:16--> 00:51:44

Amanda Holloway at the hawi from the 10th century, he stated in his classical work on theology and Al Qaeda at the hardware, he Allah is ancient, and he used the term body without the beginning and always existing without an end event is who did the commentary on the upgrade to hardware.

00:51:46--> 00:51:50

He said, explaining imaam at the hallways, Harvey's statement,

00:51:52--> 00:52:11

that is the meaning of the Divine Names are our, the first and the last. And knowledge of the necessity of these two attributes is an ingrained part of human nature. For all existing things must go back in time, to unnecessary uncreated

00:52:13--> 00:52:27

being which he called an Arabic wajib allude, from the chain of things created from other things, or by other things coming to an end.

00:52:31--> 00:52:45

all existing things must go back in time to unnecessary uncreated being, for the chain of things created from other things, or by other things coming to an end.

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

Making a law number one, by following the profits, so I sell them

00:52:53--> 00:53:07

after having made a law number one by loving Him, we are required to affirm the fullness of that love by loving those who Allah loves as a processor uncoated us

00:53:08--> 00:53:30

from the derive profit diode saying Allahumma inni as a Luca hogback, or Herberman your hibel Allah allow me to love you and to love those who love you. Because the love of Allah is somewhat abstract, Allah identified certain acts, which would be indicative of that love.

00:53:31--> 00:53:41

The first and most important of these acts is to obediently follow the messenger who he sent to guide humankind and the gene guide.

00:53:43--> 00:53:48

Call in quantum to a boon Allah for Toby Rooney, your baby como la.

00:53:50--> 00:54:00

Se are people if you truly love Allah, then follow me and Allah will love you. When a fella comes back home and forgive your sins

00:54:01--> 00:54:05

Allahu Allah for Rahim and allies, forgiving, All Merciful

00:54:07--> 00:54:11

Surah Al Imran verse 31. Allah states in no uncertain terms,

00:54:13--> 00:54:16

that obedience to the prophet SAW Selim is the same as obedience tiene,

00:54:18--> 00:54:24

mucho Rasool Allah tala. whoever obeys the messengers obey the law. Certainly cybersafety mentioned earlier.

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

Allah describes obedience to the prophets I send them

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

as being a part

00:54:33--> 00:54:35

of obedience to Him.

00:54:36--> 00:54:43

He also instruct the believers to obey both him and the prophets in order to further emphasize

00:54:44--> 00:54:45

that

00:54:46--> 00:54:49

the prophet SAW them should be obeyed.

00:54:52--> 00:54:59

He said yeah, you're Latina. hamin a theorem la wa T or rosu are you believe obey Allah Allah

00:55:00--> 00:55:12

obey the messenger. Allah also warns us not to go against the prophets Allah and states that whoever disobeyed him will be doomed to eternal hell.

00:55:13--> 00:55:14

Allah says

00:55:19--> 00:55:27

Allah Dena you Holly funa, Anna Marie, and to ceiba whom fit Nutan all you see by whom other Boone Ali

00:55:32--> 00:55:42

let those who are pay oppose the messengers commands. Beware less some trial before them or a painful punishment.

00:55:44--> 00:55:53

Allah has also made obedience to the broadside Salah my religious duty, resisting or opposing it as a sign of hypocrisy.

00:55:55--> 00:56:08

It's right on this average 65 law said there but no by your Lord they will not believe until they make you judge you Muhammad judge in all the disputes between them.

00:56:10--> 00:56:15

For law book, lie Amina had Taiyaki Mu mcguffie ma shahdara bynoe

00:56:16--> 00:56:24

tamala g doofy and footsy him how Raja mimma polite How will you sell limo Tesla

00:56:27--> 00:56:35

they do not find in themselves resistance to your decisions and accept them with full submission.

00:56:36--> 00:56:41

Alonso commands he seems to refer all disputes to Him and His Messenger

00:56:42--> 00:57:01

ventanas to fish a further ado Allah Allah Rasool in quantum manana be lying when Yamanaka and if you differ in anything amongst yourself, your friend to Allah and His Messenger, if you truly believe in Allah, and the last day, so Anissa verse 59.

00:57:04--> 00:57:07

And Prophet Mohammed

00:57:09--> 00:57:12

was quoted by a raffia,

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

saying,

00:57:16--> 00:57:21

I do not want to see any one of you reclining on his couch.

00:57:23--> 00:57:28

And when he hears of my instructions or prohibitions, he says,

00:57:30--> 00:57:31

Don't accept it.

00:57:33--> 00:57:36

We didn't find any such thing in the book of Allah.

00:57:39--> 00:57:41

And another narration,

00:57:42--> 00:57:45

the raw sanlam was poured into upset.

00:57:46--> 00:57:47

Would any of you think

00:57:48--> 00:57:54

while reclining on his couch, and Allah would only describe what is forbidden in the plan?

00:57:56--> 00:58:05

I tell you by Allah, that I have warned and commanded and prohibited things that are as important as what is in the prime, if not more, so.

00:58:06--> 00:58:16

They're both authentic narrations from the process on the morning of that time, where people would deny this.

00:58:18--> 00:58:26

Now in terms of following a mother because we're talking about following Rasulullah sallallahu, while Ava said that

00:58:30--> 00:58:31

most Muslims

00:58:33--> 00:58:39

are required to follow a matter, people have made it very clear.

00:58:40--> 00:58:43

Matter of being a school of jurisprudence.

00:58:44--> 00:58:53

You're not allowed to just come up with anything you want. interpret things as you wish and you please, without knowledge, you will just create confusion.

00:58:55--> 00:59:02

So yes, every Muslim, no need to follow or does need to follow

00:59:04--> 00:59:04

a match.

00:59:06--> 00:59:43

For the average rank and file Muslim, their mother whoever is that of the MFT or their scholar, whom they consult for religious readings, they must ask those pious scholars whom they trust for opinions when it's necessary. If a person has enough knowledge to distinguish which evidence and opinion is stronger, then he must follow the scholarly opinion which has the strongest support from the Quran and Sunnah Allah does first degree in quantum law and I would ask those who know you don't know. So we are obliged

00:59:44--> 00:59:52

to call on the scholars to seek their guidance and their explanations.

00:59:53--> 00:59:59

It is acceptable for a Muslim to follow one of the four well known maps on

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

The condition that he understands that the truth in any given issue

01:00:07--> 01:00:24

may lie with another man, in which case he should ignore his own mother's opinion and follow the truth does that's the purpose is to find the truth. The Muslims aim is to follow the truth that is in accordance with the Quran and the Sunnah.

01:00:25--> 01:00:38

The man's hands are only a means of determining the rules, they are based on the Quran and the Sunnah. They are not equivalent to the Quran. And so

01:00:41--> 01:00:46

what then do we have to say to those

01:00:47--> 01:00:54

who say you must follow a matter. And in fact, it has to be one of the four well known

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

that if you don't follow one of these four, that then your mother

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

is the mother of Satan.

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

Because in their view,

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

blindly following the madhhab

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

is

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

required and sufficient because they believe the math abs are infallible.

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

And this is despite glaring contradictions in their rulings on various Islamic law points of Islamic law.

01:01:35--> 01:01:45

For example, the Chavez school holds that if a man touches a woman accidentally, or otherwise, they will do of the both of them is broken.

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

While according to the Hanafi school, the widow is intact,

01:01:50--> 01:01:55

contradictory rulings of this type cannot be correct at the same time,

01:01:56--> 01:02:23

whereas variational differences based on different practices of the prophets are the practice of Prophet Muhammad. For example, when he began prayers, on some occasions, he raised his hands to the level of his ears not touching his ears, people take it all the way up to here, but up to the level of his ears, and sometimes he raised his hands up to the level of his shoulders, starting the prayer

01:02:24--> 01:02:25

or during the prayer,

01:02:27--> 01:03:04

both are acceptable practices because the process alum did both. However, at the same time, we should note that specifying the level of the air for men, you should raise your hands to level there. And for women, their hands should be to the level of the chest. And the explanation given Is that okay, is the level of the chest to cover their bosoms? This is sounds nice, but it's not from the center. That's not what the briefs are seldom said he did both. And men, women can choose to either raise it to level the IRS or to the level of their shoulders.

01:03:07--> 01:03:08

Then

01:03:09--> 01:03:13

for those who insist on top lead, that's the blind following of the matter.

01:03:14--> 01:03:29

How do they reconcile these differences and contradictions that we find in the mouth tabs if they're infallible as they claim and specific for the for many other learning realize there are many other mothers

01:03:31--> 01:03:39

around at the same time as the forum but the others died out and before that we know just were the most famous.

01:03:41--> 01:04:09

Some of them, those people who say you must follow the mother actually claim that the mud hubs were divinely ordained and that the province wasallam itself prophesied they're coming. For example, her team collected a hadith attributed to the prophet SAW solemn throughout the whole era in which he was supposed to have said there will be among my oma a man called Abu hanifa. He will be the lamp of my oma.

01:04:11--> 01:04:27

That sounds like it. However, alpha t himself and Al Hakim both declared it to be mogadore fabricated, forged among the fabrications of Mohammed bin Zayed Al murase.

01:04:29--> 01:04:51

Al Khatib also collected another report report through Anna Sydney Malik, on the capacitor the process Allah supposedly that the browser Sallam said they will come after me a man called Norman and Norman had been started, but named Abu hanifa. Laws of religion and my sooner will be revived by him.

01:04:52--> 01:04:59

Its chain of narrators also has OPMOD as a Jew, a body a well known fabricator of Hades.

01:05:00--> 01:05:09

Mohammed bin z the salami whose narrations are classified unacceptable, not true by the scholars.

01:05:10--> 01:05:46

Most often, however, those who insist on the obligation of following one of the format hubs rest their case, mainly on the evidence of the following oft quoted Paddy's ft laugh Amati Rama disagreements among my nation is a mercy. But it has no chain of narration connecting it to anyone, much less the prophet SAW some noise it found in any of the books of Hadith. It is therefore incorrect to even refer to it as I had it as it is fabricut

01:05:47--> 01:06:05

the other narration differences among my Sahaba are mercy for you. This narration was classified by Heidi scholars as wine, extremely weak as hobby cannot do the aim the datum is today to

01:06:07--> 01:06:08

this narration

01:06:12--> 01:06:18

my sabar like stars you will be guided by whichever of them you follow

01:06:20--> 01:06:22

this is also Mordor

01:06:23--> 01:06:24

fabricated

01:06:25--> 01:06:33

And verily my Sahaba like stars you'll be guided by any statement of theirs you adopt again fabricated

01:06:35--> 01:06:42

also I asked my lord about the things in which my companions will differ is attributed to resume Lhasa Salah directly

01:06:43--> 01:07:01

and a lot revealed to me all Mohammed, rarely, to me your companions are like stars in the sky, some brighter than the others. So he who follows anything over which they Sahaba of different as far as I'm concerned, you will be following guidance.

01:07:03--> 01:07:11

This narration is classified by Hadith scholars as Barton false and when Malik Indianness

01:07:12--> 01:07:23

Mr. Malik, when he was asked about following the Sahaba if one follow the sahadi in everything that he did, would he be on the right path?

01:07:25--> 01:07:27

Mr. Malik said no,

01:07:28--> 01:07:29

he would not be on the right path.

01:07:31--> 01:07:39

Unless what he was following was correct. Meaning if the companion is on the wrong path,

01:07:40--> 01:07:46

is following something which is incorrect. You're following him? We'll be following him and in correctness,

01:07:47--> 01:07:57

you are not excused to say okay, no, you're right because you're following as a hobby, regardless of what he is on whether he's on the right path on the wrong path.

01:07:59--> 01:08:00

This is

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

wrong. This was what is explained by Mr. Malik as misguidance.

01:08:07--> 01:09:00

That's the Hadith evidence is for the glorification and perpetuation of differences among the mothers is totally unacceptable from the point of view of authenticity. However, not only are these so called had these inauthentic, but they're very meanings are an obvious conflict with the Quran itself. Throughout the Quran, it's 114 chapters Alliance clearly cursed and forbidden religious disagreement, and as ordered the oma instead to remain united in agreement. This agreement has been explicitly forbidden in verses such as Latin as potential we can have a rehab rehearsal. Do not dispute among yourselves and cause your own failure and loss of power. Swirl and fall verse 46, or

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

into our room verses 31 and 32. Will aftercooler middle mushrikeen when alladhina Farah codina home Kanu Shia Kula has been Ramallah day him for a home Do not be like those among the idol worshipers who split up their religion intersects each group happy with what they had.

01:09:26--> 01:09:45

Also, Allah has implicitly forbidden it. Inverse verse 118 and 119 of Surah Hood Hello sha Allah buka La Jolla NASA omoton wahida realizar Luna mK delphina illa man rocky Morocco.

01:09:46--> 01:09:58

If your Lord had willed, He could have made humankind one people and they will not cease to dispute except those on whom your Lord has bestowed His mercy.

01:10:00--> 01:10:13

So if Allah has mercy puts an end to dispute among human beings, as implied in the verse that I just recited. How then could disagreement and dispute vmrc

01:10:15--> 01:10:17

in the unmistakable terms

01:10:18--> 01:10:24

of the following verse, Watterson will be Hubley, like me a lot of our

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

old firm to the rope of Allah and do not split up.

01:10:31--> 01:10:38

Allah has ordered unity and agreement and rejected this unity and disagreement.

01:10:42--> 01:10:55

So, what most people don't realize regarding the methods is that the Imam Abu hanifa wasn't the Hanafi nor was he my Malik, even as a Maliki.

01:10:56--> 01:11:15

Then the other moms all strove to follow only one map, which was the madhhab of the Prophet so I sell them just as Abubakar Omar was man and I needed there was an is really only one acceptable matter, that we may follow blindly,

01:11:17--> 01:11:18

to follow

01:11:20--> 01:11:27

other than it misguides misguides us It puts us in a state of misguidance

01:11:28--> 01:11:35

that one mother is the mother of the Messenger of Allah and it should be before all else.

01:11:39--> 01:11:40

Baraka rafiqul

01:11:42--> 01:11:48

we have now come to the end of part one of session 52

01:11:49--> 01:11:53

do a part two will follow

01:11:55--> 01:11:56

tomorrow

01:11:57--> 01:11:59

or the day after tomorrow?

01:12:00--> 01:12:05

Sorry, I'm not able to be more precise, Allah willing

01:12:06--> 01:12:14

it we will inshallah cover the remainder of the first principle making ourselves number one

01:12:17--> 01:12:31

along with the remaining three principles for adopting and applying the Beautiful Names of allies proposed by the Andalusian scholar the 12th century imaam even Paul

01:12:32--> 01:12:35

do I using these two names are using this name

01:12:37--> 01:12:42

will be made at the end of Part Two

01:12:43--> 01:12:44

in Sha insha Allah

01:12:45--> 01:12:48

Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

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

will now shift

01:13:15--> 01:13:19

and the remaining time to our

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

q&a

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

as usual

01:13:25--> 01:13:26

biological

01:13:33--> 01:13:37

first question we can take from the

01:13:38--> 01:13:43

Instagram followers, visitors, students etc.

01:13:45--> 01:13:53

I got a question regarding the floral design for boys as I guess Is it is it permissible to wear those

01:13:54--> 01:14:11

floral design for boys for girls boys wearing this floral designs. I mean this is where in a society in a society where it is very clear that floral designs are only worn by girls.

01:14:13--> 01:14:17

And non floral designs are only worn by boys. If it's that way.

01:14:18--> 01:14:26

Then it would not be permissible in that society for boys to wear the floral design

01:14:27--> 01:14:29

in another community,

01:14:30--> 01:14:35

another part of the world where a floral designs are worn by everybody, no problem.

01:14:37--> 01:14:42

Similarly, for example, for a boy to wear, a girl skirt

01:14:43--> 01:14:44

will say

01:14:45--> 01:14:59

she can't do that. That's a solemn curse. Those who imitated males when dated females and females are indicated males the dress. However, in Scotland, the men wear kilts, which are skirts

01:15:00--> 01:15:08

And in Yemen. They also were, you know, his eyes but they were so short they just to their knee. Like they look like skirts.

01:15:10--> 01:15:32

But in those societies, men were that so you will not go to them and tell them this is haram brothers you have to stop your society's all misguided. You're wearing clothes of women. No. If it has become a norm and accepted practice of the people, then that has to be acceptable.

01:15:33--> 01:15:42

Nadira charge Dean asks shape is it allowed to take loans from Islamic banks to build a house? No.

01:15:43--> 01:15:53

Oh, sorry, from Islamic banks, yes. Is this a is this allowable? loans? Right. But once you said loans are immediately what came into my head was Riba.

01:15:54--> 01:16:03

So rebar is not permissible. But the loan system developed in Islamic banks, which for some, for many people, they say, Well, you know,

01:16:04--> 01:16:15

you end up paying more with these Islamic loans than they pay in the regular bank with the Dubai loan. So what is this? Well, we have to understand

01:16:17--> 01:16:23

that the global monetary system is controlled by Riba.

01:16:26--> 01:16:41

That's the bottom line rebuys interwoven into everything globally, virtually. So when we try to extricate ourselves out of rebar, our rebar circumstance, it becomes very difficult.

01:16:42--> 01:17:17

And as such, it becomes costly. Because what's easy tends to be cheap, what's more difficult will become more costly. So don't take this as a reason for not doing the loan through Islamic banks. Islamic bank which has worked out ways and means to get out of the river and find it a bit more costly, so it's gonna cost you more but know that the house that you built which was free from Riba is a house blessed by Allah and the house you build

01:17:19--> 01:17:22

based on Riba? is a house cursed by Allah.

01:17:29--> 01:17:31

Go ahead from Instagram.

01:17:32--> 01:17:36

Is it written anywhere that's selling cats is how long?

01:17:39--> 01:17:43

I do recall something to that effect.

01:17:45--> 01:18:00

But I am not 100% certain. So I do want to say absolutely. In sha Allah will look into that and come back to you in the next session with something definitive.

01:18:04--> 01:18:05

Kazuma

01:18:06--> 01:18:16

Zubair asked the question Who are the comedies comedies like cardi Annie's are followers of Mirza Ghulam met

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

an individual from the 19th century

01:18:22--> 01:18:23

who claimed

01:18:25--> 01:18:26

that he

01:18:27--> 01:18:30

was a messenger of Allah,

01:18:31--> 01:18:35

that he really he received revelation from Allah

01:18:37--> 01:18:41

and he has his writings and etc, which his followers follow and consider

01:18:43--> 01:18:43

and

01:18:46--> 01:18:49

there are slight differences between the

01:18:50--> 01:18:54

kardan is they may be called that and the Archimedes

01:18:57--> 01:19:15

in that one group holds that Mirza Ghulam Ahmed was in fact, a messenger and the other one say no, he was a reformer. But either way, they have been declared by the world Muslim League

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

with representatives from all over the Muslim ummah.

01:19:19--> 01:19:25

unanimously they were declared as being a non Muslim sect. They're outside of Islam.

01:19:26--> 01:19:30

That's why in Pakistan, they're not allowed to call their places of worship mosques.

01:19:35--> 01:19:37

from Instagram, go ahead.

01:19:43--> 01:19:46

It is making money from gaming

01:19:47--> 01:19:49

slash YouTube kalon

01:19:53--> 01:19:55

everyone is playing a game.

01:19:56--> 01:20:00

Competition enters into a competition that's what that's what it be.

01:20:00--> 01:20:11

comes, if the means whether it's online or whether it's physically engaged, you know, before people like the Olympics and these kind of things, whatever, if there is

01:20:13--> 01:20:20

a competition, and as an amount of money goes to the winner, this in and of itself is not.

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

But for those who are watching that competition and bet each other,

01:20:29--> 01:20:32

then that betting is hot up.

01:20:34--> 01:20:43

Mom, it's somebody asks, What is the big factor Christian people assume, Prophet Jesus is the Son of God?

01:20:47--> 01:20:47

Well,

01:20:49--> 01:20:52

the big factor is that

01:20:53--> 01:20:55

they claim

01:20:57--> 01:20:58

that he,

01:20:59--> 01:21:03

because he was born without a father,

01:21:04--> 01:21:11

his birth, from only a mother from Maryam, that made him

01:21:12--> 01:21:15

a son of God. And in fact, God was his father.

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

That's why he was called the only begotten Son.

01:21:24--> 01:21:29

That's the title they give him. And Mary's called the Mother of God.

01:21:31--> 01:21:39

Especially in amongst the Catholics, who were the original Christians, after

01:21:41--> 01:21:58

the Divinity was given to Prophet Jesus. But actually, the original Christians were Muslims. monotheists they followed Prophet Jesus as a prophet of God, and worship God as He did.

01:22:01--> 01:22:03

From instagrammers.

01:22:04--> 01:22:09

Then we mix practice the madhhab in our daily life.

01:22:12--> 01:22:14

It depends on what you mean by mixed practice.

01:22:16--> 01:22:18

You know, if

01:22:20--> 01:22:26

you're looking for the easy way out, you go from one month habits, it's something you want to do.

01:22:27--> 01:22:58

But in your mind, habit says no, you can't do it. So you go to another man habit says no, you can't go to another mother. He says, You can't do till you find a mother which says you can do it and say, okay, fine, that's it. That's what I'm following. No, that is misguidance. Because you're not trying to follow the truth. You're just trying to follow what is easiest for you for you. I know. Yes. prophesied Sallam said that whenever he was given a choice between two things, both of which were hollow.

01:22:59--> 01:23:02

He would take the easier one, but this is different.

01:23:04--> 01:23:13

This is you not concerned whether the both are halala horombo, whatever. You're just finding an excuse to do this thing you want to do.

01:23:15--> 01:23:17

So that's misguidance not accepted.

01:23:20--> 01:23:21

kosamba

01:23:22--> 01:23:30

again, asks, to what extent should one go as long as fit issues and differences are concerned?

01:23:32--> 01:23:35

I don't understand what you mean by that. No.

01:23:38--> 01:24:00

Best to ask a scholar with clarification. Be Nish duranie. As I laughs and curry in the same thing, no. nerves, is the soul. Corinne is a gin and evil agenda that's assigned to every human being as angel is assigned to every human being. It

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

encourages us put stocks in our heads, etc. to do evil. When we have choices between good and evil, it encourages us to do evil. And the angel that is set with us encourages us to do good. So we are between the two

01:24:24--> 01:24:30

person asks Jeff below Do you remember channel two of Saudi TV? How could I forget it?

01:24:31--> 01:24:41

I did a program called why Islam for years on channel two TV after I left Saudi Arabia.

01:24:42--> 01:24:44

Others took it over

01:24:46--> 01:24:47

Mashallah.

01:24:52--> 01:24:59

It was a program mainly, as I did it anyway. Interviewing converts to Islam.

01:25:01--> 01:25:13

And focusing in the interview not so much on their whole story, because everybody has a story, but focusing on the main points which caused them to accept the slap.

01:25:14--> 01:25:49

Now the idea though it seemed like it was a story format, such as my intention was that if someone who was watching the program was in a similar situation as this person and heard the solution that that person found, in order to resolve whatever issues they had an they became a Muslim, that perhaps that would cause others to become a Muslim. So it was a means of Dawa. It was not just a storytelling session, where people are brought on and they tell their stories, and everybody enjoys their stories.

01:25:50--> 01:25:53

That happened, but that was not the intent.

01:25:56--> 01:26:14

Next question from Sean, Mohammed, what is the accurate beginning and ending time for us or Salah? Yeah, I know you're probably from an area where they have ossur Salah for HANA fees, and assar Salah for Sharpies.

01:26:15--> 01:26:16

Well,

01:26:17--> 01:26:24

the proper time is the one followed by the shot face.

01:26:28--> 01:26:29

Question from a Christian.

01:26:30--> 01:26:31

Nicole, john.

01:26:33--> 01:26:42

Allah said we sent the Quran in pure Arabic so we can understand it. But Allah go back

01:26:43--> 01:26:53

and said, there are verses that we cannot understand. So that is a contradiction, or is it not? Well, actually, the verse that you're referring to,

01:26:55--> 01:26:56

is

01:26:59--> 01:27:08

explanatory, self explanatory. Because it's come it comes in a sequence. It's not just a verse by itself. So we have a lot of saying,

01:27:09--> 01:27:16

it's an Arabic so you can understand it. Another verse, he said, You can't understand it. No.

01:27:17--> 01:27:21

Take the full verse. Now we have verses in the Quran, which says,

01:27:22--> 01:27:23

Don't come to Salah.

01:27:25--> 01:27:35

But that's if you stop there. Now that contradicts everything else. There's so many verses in the Bible would say, go to prayer, pray. But we have one verse which says, Don't

01:27:37--> 01:27:38

come to prayer.

01:27:40--> 01:27:53

If you complete the verse, it says, when you are in a state of intoxication, okay? That makes sense. Whenever you break up verses, and only take bits and pieces, then you pull out of it.

01:27:54--> 01:28:05

meanings which contradict the basic intent, and standard meaning and the problem. So that's what's happened to you there. You know, the point is that

01:28:07--> 01:28:13

there are verses where there are deeper meanings which may not be

01:28:14--> 01:28:23

readily grasped by the average person. So that's why Allah said in the brand, ask those who know if you don't know.

01:28:25--> 01:28:43

There will be some things in the Quran, which, on the surface, it has one meaning but you know, there's a bit more depth to it, to give you a wider meaning, so there's knowledge of people amongst you, who can give you that wider meaning, deeper meaning, so you go to them.

01:28:52--> 01:29:01

Question another question from a Christian square circles are the words of the Quran borrowed from other books?

01:29:05--> 01:29:05

No.

01:29:08--> 01:29:11

Now, verses in the Quran,

01:29:12--> 01:29:16

which are also found in

01:29:17--> 01:29:20

previous text to Moses and to Jesus.

01:29:21--> 01:29:23

Just like in in the,

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

in the Gospel of Jesus.

01:29:30--> 01:29:44

There will be there will be in it. Words found from the Torah of Moses. And in the Torah of Moses, there will be words found in previous books.

01:29:46--> 01:29:48

This is part of the continuity.

01:29:50--> 01:29:53

So it's not a question of borrowed words.

01:29:54--> 01:29:59

The bottom line is that the Quran is here. We are

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

Sure

01:30:02--> 01:30:08

that Prophet Muhammad sallahu wa sallam conveyed it to us in its completeness.

01:30:09--> 01:30:26

The Gospel of Jesus doesn't exist anymore. It has been lost. We have some gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and john, but who wrote them? Allah knows. You might say, No, no, no, it was Matthew, it was my market was

01:30:27--> 01:30:31

scholars, non Muslims, who

01:30:32--> 01:30:48

speak on this from Encyclopedia Britannica, the biggest encyclopedia in the world, etc. They explain scholars, leading Christian scholars themselves admit, we don't know the authors of these gospels, and even the way in which they are written.

01:30:49--> 01:30:50

So

01:30:51--> 01:31:33

before even getting into borrowed words, and all this kind of thing, do you have to question yourself? Do I have the Torah of Moses? No, there may be things from the Torah of Moses there, just as there may be things from the Gospel of Jesus in the gospels, but we don't have the gospel of Jesus, that you can say, Jesus delivered this gospel. We wrote it down even the what writings of the gospels are in Greek. What was the language of Jesus Greek? No, Jesus didn't speak Greek. He spoke Aramaic, that was his language. So where is the Aramaic gospel of Jesus, nowhere to be found.

01:31:34--> 01:31:39

And then a number of other issues that go into the Torah, you know, you can

01:31:41--> 01:32:00

go and search about it, the origins of the Torah, the repetitions that are in there, the contradictions that are in there, and you know, how the offers were many, not just one person, you know, Moses is writing in what is supposed to be Prophet Moses was written, you know, in the end of the,

01:32:02--> 01:32:19

the first five books of Moses, that, and Moses was died in such and such a time, and he was buried on this mountain, describing his his burial. Obviously, Prophet Moses didn't write that.

01:32:21--> 01:32:40

That's just one. But there are many, many other examples that we know for certain. We don't have the Torah, of Prophet Moses. But we know absolutely, that we do have the Quran of Prophet Muhammad. So that's where we

01:32:41--> 01:32:45

that's the point at which we can stand.

01:32:46--> 01:32:48

Question from the instagramers.

01:32:49--> 01:32:53

What is the Islamic law for adopting a child?

01:32:56--> 01:33:12

You can't give him your family name. He keeps his own name. He knows that you're not actually his father, you've adopted him. You can go into those details, of course, when he gets old enough to understand it, because for you to tell a three year old child, listen, I might not actually your father.

01:33:14--> 01:33:24

You know, he or she is not just not going to grasp it. You explain to them when they're old enough to understand, so you don't want to hide anything from them.

01:33:25--> 01:33:35

So they know the truth. And you're not allowed to change their name, as the professor solemn had changed the name of an adopted son of his said.

01:33:38--> 01:33:43

And it was known as native Muhammad, and then it was changed back to zedi been

01:33:47--> 01:33:57

Byelaws command center only about him. Oh, wow. So to in the law, call them by their father's names, because this is more just in the sight of all

01:33:59--> 01:34:01

hdc

01:34:02--> 01:34:07

Ali Ahmed asks, What is the legality of cryptocurrency in Islam?

01:34:09--> 01:34:13

This is involved in debate and discussion.

01:34:14--> 01:34:17

The bottom line is that as long as it's not been

01:34:19--> 01:34:28

in the realm of business, etc, everything is halaal except that which has been specifically prohibited.

01:34:29--> 01:34:48

So, if you have clear specific evidence that cryptocurrency is prohibited, then it is prohibited. If you don't have that evidence, but you hear somebody saying we think it may be like and it hasn't, it might have an it sometimes has and

01:34:49--> 01:34:50

then

01:34:52--> 01:34:53

don't worry about it.

01:34:54--> 01:34:59

Go ahead with it being hollow until you get the clear evidence when you get the clear evidence if you get clear evidence.

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

said it's haraam

01:35:02--> 01:35:03

then you have to leave it

01:35:06--> 01:35:13

aka asks what is the best draw for one going through a calamity and hardship again say what is the best one?

01:35:15--> 01:35:26

No, but there are many do as the processor laptop and in personal Muslim, the fortress of the Muslim you can read them their

01:35:33--> 01:35:45

last question by Danish Granny, we should love all the profits equally. All the profits are equal. I shouldn't be loved ones that sell more because we are Zuma. We love them all.

01:35:47--> 01:35:49

We love problems or sell them

01:35:50--> 01:35:52

more because we know him more.

01:35:54--> 01:35:56

And that's the nature human nature.

01:35:57--> 01:36:00

One we don't know and it's just the name a little careful.

01:36:01--> 01:36:06

Okay, you love him because he was mentioned among the prophets of Allah

01:36:07--> 01:36:08

food.

01:36:09--> 01:36:12

You can see some of the struggles that he went through.

01:36:13--> 01:36:15

We can love him for his strength.

01:36:16--> 01:36:32

That degree but limited. Where is the problem? hammers are solid we know his whole life from birth to death. All the struggles that he went through were recorded in detail we have his whole life before us. So naturally,

01:36:33--> 01:36:49

we will love more about him. Then the other prophets, but in fact, Lana Farah Cobain Ahad ma Rosalie, Allah tala said nikka da we don't make a distinction between any of his messengers,

01:36:52--> 01:37:04

sha Allah, that was the last of our questions. So we'll be closing our session now. Subhana calama Ambika shadow Illa Allah and stop firaga.

01:37:06--> 01:37:10
