Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
I'd like to welcome you to
session 54 B
of our series
the names of Allah
This is part two
So as usual, I will greet
some of our students, guests, visitors, etc.
Before starting the actual session

as today's session
And the whole
study of this name,
a lie here
is quite extensive, which is why we divided it into two parts.
Even so, both of the parts were still rather long. So we're going to go straight into our session. And we'll take your questions and further greetings at the end in Shama.
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim.
Allah Allah He was Harvey
womanist and abyssal Natty, he in Iommi Dean.
All praise is due to Alon mela Peace and blessings beyond the last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and an all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.
This is session 54 b Avaya named 77
being the evident
the helper and the sub Nur
focusing on other aspects of the name in this segment.
As we said earlier,
the name a lawyer is mentioned only once in the Quran. Surah Al Hadid versary
Well, well well.
Well why Hebrew well, bouton well who are they
cliche in Eileen is the first and the last, the outer and the inner. And he has knowledge of all things.
In terms of the meaning linguistically, we said, a va Here comes from the trilateral route law, ha, and the raw
verbal noun from that route being viral.
And it had five main meanings.
The first is to be visible, manifest and distinct,
which is what we focused on, in the first
part, part A, part one of our study.
The second meaning is to open or to come out. The third is to ascend
to have a higher status. The fourth is to subdue and to overcome
and the fifth is to help and to support others.
relative to a law.
law here is the most manifests as everything other than himself is only manifested by His attributes,
is higher above his creation and nothing is higher than him.
Though here, the transcendent was explained by the prophets of Salaam itself in his statement, describing a law as
we enter via Hebrew Falaise, a foe Kaka shape, and you are the highest and there is nothing above you.
He is also the one who subdues everything and everyone
while on the other hand, is the true helper
while others can only provide help and support through his aid,
according to Evan bubbles, four principles,
the first of which was to adopt where applicable,
we are continuing.
In the first
principle, the Divine Name of liar, the manifest may be adopted by human beings and applied in their lives in three basic ways. The first is to be intellectually certain about a loss existence, at whatever level convinces us for the Bedouin, Arab, camel dung, indicating the camels presence was enough to convince him.
Why while for some scientists, the discovery of the Big Bang was sufficient to convince them that the universe was not eternal.
Because that's the claim of the atheists, that the universe is eternal.
is to understand that a laws essence is not within his creation,
but above and beyond it, that is, a law is completely separate from his creation, creation neither surrounds him in any way, nor is it above him
in any fashion.
The third is to be convinced about the authenticity of the Quran.
That it is in fact from God. Allah is also manifest through his final revelation.
The first two of these ways of application were covered in session 54 a part one?
So the third is to be convinced that the Quran is revelation from God.
What are we talking about here? We're talking about the miracle of the Quran.
Human beings naturally dislike submitting to other human beings, unless they're forced to do so by the latter's physical strength,
or their mental superiority, or if they're shown feats far beyond the abilities of any human
covers the miracles which the various prophets brought with them to convince their people
In the first two cases, they yield reluctantly.
While in the third, they yield because of their belief in a higher force or power, defying all human comparisons.
Therefore Allah favorite His messengers, not only with the revelation, and sometimes military might like prophet day with defeating Goliath,
but also with miracles, like the parting of the Red Sea, for Prophet Moses,
take the Israelites out of Egypt.
This clearly proved to people the divine origin and truthfulness of their messages for those
who are honest, and because there are others who, like Pharaoh, he didn't take it as clear evidence. He just tried to follow Prophet Moses across that land bridge, which appeared in the sea as the sea was parted.
And of course, he got caught.
The inability of people to imitate the miracles of the profits made many of them willing to bear witness to a loss, unity, and obeying the commandments of the profits.
Due to the difficulties involved in communication and transportation, the early prophets were sent only to the people among whom they were raised up.
Thus, the miracles which they brought, were particularly suited to the areas of knowledge in which their people excelled, in order for the miracles to have the maximum effect on them.
For example, Prophet Moses was raised up among the Egyptians, who are noted for their mastery of the occult arts, sorcery and magic.
Hence, Allah gave him the miracle of turning his staff into a snake.
When Pharaohs, saucers and magician then magicians were gathered to challenge Prophet Moses, and the staffs which they cast appeared to the audience, present as snakes. Allah turn Prophet Moses his staff into a real snake that devours the apparent snakes of his opponents.
That defeat was sufficient proof for the madness for the magicians, and the sorcerers who knew that no one could change the nature of a stick, as Moses apparently had done.
They fell on their faces in submission, and sincere belief in the God of Moses, in spite of the threats, threats on their lives, altered by their master Pharaoh.
Another example is that a Prophet Jesus was chosen by law from among the Jews, who are especially noted for their exceptional abilities in the field of medicine. And until today, there are no us doctors were highly respected and revered for their seemingly magical ability to mend bones, heal wounds, and cure the sick.
Plus Allah favorite Prophet Jesus, with the miraculous ability to make the blind see
the lame walk, and to bring the dead back to life above anything that the Jewish doctors were doing. These abilities were clearly beyond those of the Jewish doctors of that day. And they knew well that no ordinary human being could do that. Yet Allah gave Prophet Jesus an even more dazzling miracle. He was able to mold birds out of clay, and blow on them and they would fly away living birds.
Since Prophet Muhammad wa salam was to be the last of the prophets sent not only to a particular people, but to all of humankind. As stated in the Quran,
he was sent as rahmatan Leilani as a mercy to all of worlds.
He was given a miracle, which not only amazed the people among whom he was raised, but which would remain a challenge to human minds until the last days of this world.
Like all the prophets before him, Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah was given a number of other mirror
Whose effects were basically limited to the people of his time. For example, the splitting of the moon upon his tribes request for sine.
And the outpouring of water from between the fingers of his hands on one occasion when he and his companions were short of water, and the phenomenon of pebbles and rocks greeting him saying Salaam Alaikum is just to mention a few.
But if somebody were to say, Okay, show us the water that came out of the prophets fingers, or between his fingers, or show us the crack in the moon. Yeah, the story that
you know, the first man on the moon found a big crack there is not since I know most of them circulated that and made fools of us.
The third pebbles and rocks greeting him, of course, you know, did you can't find any pebbles and rocks. Now they're still saying Salaam Alaikum
the prophets, Allah. Safaricom, jarocin Allah No, so these miracles were limited to their time.
However, the main miracle of Prophet Muhammad wa sallam, which was consistent with a loss aid to the prophets before him, was fundamentally a literary miracle.
Why? The Arabs had very little in the way of unique skills, or accumulated civilizational knowledge, but they took great pride in their oratory and literary skills.
yearly contests were held in fairs like that about God,
in which many famous speeches and popular poems were recited from the memories of those present,
their language had reached its peak of development, and eloquence was considered the highest quality a man could possess.
In fact, the 10 most famous points were so revered, that they etch them in gold and hung them on the Kaaba for solemn adoration.
Consequently, Allah revealed to his last prophet ebook.
But she didn't reveal to prophets before him also books, but the focus of their evidence for their Prophethood was not the books whereas in the case of perfromance asylum,
it was the book itself. Allah revealed
a book beginning some parts with unintelligible letters like Alif Lam me off, or new
Assad, tantalizing the Arab mind, as if to say, from these letters, which you combine to form your daily conversations, as well as your great works of prose and poetry, is formed a book whose shortest chapter does not exceed exceed exceed three lines. Yet you cannot imitate it, due to its eloquence, no matter how hard you try.
Thus, is outstanding miracle is the Quran itself. As the promises sanlam himself had stated,
all prophets were given something which would cause their people to believe in them
mominul ambia Nabi Yun Illa or Tia ma Miss Lu, I'm an LA
thing which I was given is none other than a revelation, the Quran which Allah revealed to me, so I hope to have the most followers among the prophets, on the day of judgment.
in order to emphasize this miracle,
the Quran itself,
laws words, challenge the people.
miracle because what we want to look at Here now is the Quran as a miracle.
It literally refers to a supernatural or extraordinary event, which cannot be duplicated by ordinary human beings.
On the basis of that definition, it has been documented in the Quran itself. A prophet Muhammad SAW
lm challenged the Arabs to produce a literary work of a similar caliber to that of the crime. But they were unable to do so in spite of their well known eloquence and literary powers. The challenge to reproduce the crime was presented to the Arabs and humankind in three stages. The first challenge was
the whole God.
Allah commanded problems I solve them, to challenge all of creation to produce a book of the statue of God.
Say, if all humankind and the jinn would come together to produce the like of this Koran,
they could not produce it
if they exerted all this strength, aiding each other
all the image time at an expense well Jin, Allah is to be Miss Lee hazal Koran, Leia tuna be Miss Lee wallow can about the whom live out in LA here are
sorry, this robbers 88
lead to that challenge was reduced to only 10 chapters.
asked them in Surah Hood
11 verse 13.
Do they say that he has invented it, say to them, bring 10 invented chapters like it and call for help to whomsoever you can, besides the law, if you are truthful.
Then came the final challenge. Just one chapter.
And we know in the Quine the shortest chapter is Surah Al culture consisting of only three verses
And so Al Baqarah, verse 23.
We're in quantum fee writing, man is Allah Allah Abba fan to be soo rotten mimis Lee
weather also had a comb in Dune ilahi in Coon to salviati.
And if you are
in doubt about what I have revealed to you, or to my servant, bring a single chapter like it and call your witnesses besides the law, if you are truthful.
This is one chapter.
If you all are in doubt about what I've revealed to my servant, bring a single chapter like it and call your witnesses besides the law, if you are truthful, to Al Baqarah, verse 23.
Now it should be noted that these challenges were not merely empty words,
with no one caring to prove them wrong, because you know, people can say anything. For example, back in the 1950s, Elijah Muhammad, the founder of the black Muslims, or is called them officially the Nation of Islam.
He issued a challenge to white Americans to prove that white people weren't devils, because in their theology,
they claim that
black people's colored peoples were a laws he pluraleyes the law
and why people were shouting, there were devils
silence call to monotheism
to the abolition of idolatry and all of its forms, and do the equality of slaves with their masters
threaten the whole socio economic framework of mechon and Arabian society in general.
And the position of the ruling Quraysh tribe of Mecca. In particular, he came from that tribe.
So, this challenge
was very, very sensitive.
The ruling class of Mecca, which was the trading center of Arabia as well as its spiritual center, desperately wanted to stop the spread of Islam. Yet all the provinces sunlamps opponents had to do it.
To crush the movement was to create a single chapter of the same standard, as any one of those, which Prophet Muhammad SAW said him and his followers were reciting to the people.
A number of Croatia, orators and poets tried to imitate the ground, but they failed miserably.
So, the Croatia leaders resorted to bribery. First, by offering the province as a lump large amounts of wealth.
Then they offered him the position or along with it, the position of being the king over them.
And they even offered in the hands of the most noble and beautiful of their women, in exchange for his promise to stop inviting people to stop.
He responded to them by reciting the first 13 verses of Surah facilite until they asked him to stop
also resorted to torturing their slaves and relatives who had embraced Islam in a vain attempt to cause them to revert to paganism. But they didn't succeed. Nobody.
Later they organize an economic boycott against the prophet SAW Selim and his followers, and the members of his clan brainwash him
in an attempt to starve them into submission,
but even this plan eventually failed.
Finally, they plotted to kill him in his own home by sending an armed group of young men from each of the Croatia clans, in order that the guilt of His mercy of his murder would be shared by all the clients, making it difficult for the Prophet's clan, to take revenge on those involved in his murder.
However, a lie enabled the prophet SAW Solomon his followers to flee Mecca, and join a new band of converts, who had arisen among the tribes of a city to the north called the Africa.
Islam spread rapidly through the clans of Africa. And within a year, Muslims became the city's majority.
Prophet Muhammad SAW Salam was then made the ruler and the name of the city was changed to Medina to rasulillah. City of the Messenger of Allah
in short, Medina
over the next eight years, the clans of Mecca and its neighboring lands, mountainous see series of unsuccessful battle campaigns against the emerging Muslim state in Medina,
followed by a temporary tooth which they eventually ended
with the Muslim invasion of Mecca itself, because the mccanns had broken the conditions of the treaty.
All of this bloodshed could have been avoided, if only the Quraysh and their allies had been able to produce a mere three lines of poetry
or flowing prose similar to the shortest surah or chapter of the graph.
Hence, there can be no doubt about the in in in, in intimate in imitability of the current literary style. It is inimitable
about the miracle of its rhyme,
and the marvel of its wisdom.
It has been suggested by some critics that the intimate ability of the Quran is not necessarily unique. For great English poets like Shakespeare, Chaucer, or other great poets in any language, tend to have distinctly unique styles, which set them apart from their contemporaries. However, if, for example, a leading poet of today were to make an in depth study of Shakespeare's writings, and write a sonnet, a boil, and Shakespeare's style in old ink,
ink from 13th century whatever, and an old paper paper from that period, then claim that he discovered a last poem of Shakespeare. The literary word would probably accept his claim
in after careful study.
They, of course, you're going to
confirm it from the historical perspective, whether the paper is old, whether the ink is old, etc, etc. So if he'd covered those bases, and now it's just about the point and the style
They could just as well say that this was a poem of Shakespeare
does even the greatest of points could be imitated no matter how unique their style was, just as famous painters have been imitated.
The grind, however, is way above this level, as attempts to force chapters have been made throughout the ages, yet none as we stood close scrutiny. And, as was mentioned before, the incentive to imitate the crown was much more intense during the time of its revelation. When literary skills were at its peak, than at any other time, yet there was no successful attempt.
Other aspects of the current miraculous nature
can be found in historical information.
Because the scripture revealed,
will contain descriptions of the past the present and the future.
these stories which are
mentioned regarding different aspects of human history, can be checked out for the accuracy.
One example of the Krantz precision, and its historical descriptions is that of the story of Prophet Joseph producers, who was sold as a slave in Egypt, but rose to become an important official in the government, which made it possible for him to bring his own family to live there in honor. most historians agree that the entry of the children of Israel and to Egypt occurred when the northern half of the country was ruled by the Texas Semitic invaders, who were the first non Egyptians to rule that country since the rise of the Old Kingdom.
clan. CRAN always refers to the Egyptian ruler, who confronted Moses by the title Pharaoh.
Every Egyptian ruler was called by this title starting from the reign of Amen hotep the fourth in the 14th century, before the Christian era,
but not before that.
It was estimated that profit use have lived at least 200 years before Amenhotep the fourth
and the Quran.
When referring to the ruler of Prophet users time, refers to him consistently as Al Malik the king or call al Maluku, Tony be, the king said, Bring him to me to our use of verse 50. It should be noted that on the other hand, the Bible mistakenly refers to the ruler of Joseph's time as Pharaoh, which was an error inaccurately inscribed by the scribes, who wrote and rewrote the books of the old testament centuries after Moses. Some critics of the grant have focused on certain apparently inaccurate details in order to attack the Qurans overall historical accuracy. A famous example is that of the statement
of the people of Maryam or Mary, the mother of Jesus, when she first appeared among them with a newborn baby.
After having given birth to him in an isolated place, and they know she was married.
They referred they addressed her saying, Yeah, the Harun or sister of Aaron or Harun
makanda Abukar Emma Sue. So well, now I can let Mickey, but he
or sister of irun
Your father was not an evil man. No was your mother a prostitute?
To marry me verse 28. The critics argue that the author confuse two historical figures marry the mother of Jesus and Maryam, the sister of Iran.
The confusion here is really a result of their ignorance about how the Arabs use their language. The Quran refers to Prophet wood, as the brother of ad,
was called aha ad in
And Barack Obama who will off and mentioned the brother of ad when he won his people about the same deal.
When he won his people among the Sunday
Times, refer to tribes by the patriarch from whom they were descended.
The tribe was descended from a man named dad, who was not literally the man's brother, nor was he literally the brother of every member of his tribe. But this is an expression used by the Arabs to indicate association with the people
marry, was a descendant of Aaron. That is why she is referred to as the sister of error. In a similar usage, the New Testament Luke one, verse five refers to Elizabeth, the mother of john the baptist, as a daughter of Aaron,
but she was not
predictions about the future.
Kryon accurately predicted the military victory of the Romans were known as the Byzantines over the Persians.
What about the room
fee Admiral aren't a home member they rather be him.
Say you say Abdullah Boone, Phoebe the AC need.
The Romans have been defeated in the narrowest land. After the defeat,
they will conquer within a few years.
So in our room, verses two to four, the Arabic word basil
made their own is much more precise than the English equivalent.
with their own is used for a number between three and 10 in Arabic.
Persians dealt Romans a crushing defeat in the year 616 of the Common Era,
taking away greater Syria and Egypt from them, and eventually besieging them in the eastern capital of Constantinople.
However, and 620 to six years later, the Byzantines won a decisive back battle against the Persians, the Battle of ISIS,
which allowed them to regain all of the lands they had lost.
Quran in surah
verse 27, also accurately predicted that Muslims will be able to enter Mecca peacefully in order to make ombre the lesser pilgrimage. The prediction
in Surah Noor verse 55 came in the middle of a long bitter war between the Muslims and the idol worshipers who ruled Mecca.
It also promised the Muslims that if they fulfilled the conditions of complete faith,
and good deeds that allow deputize them to rule the world and will establish their religion and replace the fear that they were currently living in with security. And that is precisely what happened.
The Quran also miraculously describes national natural phenomena.
In surprisingly accurate details
consistent with what we know today,
field of various fields of science.
For example, the expanding universe concept for the Big Bang when everything started, according to
Grant calls the readers or listeners
attention to numerous natural phenomenon that are indicators of a loss, power, wisdom and mercy.
As humanity's understanding of the workings of the natural world has increased, the miraculous nature of these Quranic descriptions has become more and more manifest.
Now, this is not the forum for a detailed discussion of this issue. So I'm just going to give you a few examples
which are quite eye catching, mind boggling
verse 47, the expanding universe was summer about a na. The idea were in Alamosa. I created the heaven by might the heavens by might. And verily I'm expanding it.
The Arabic word moves your own.
expanders is an active participant. It indicates an ongoing action that is occurring at the present time and will continue into the future. It was not until the invention of the spectroscope and the development of a huge 100 inch diameter reflecting telescope, that Edward Hubble was able to discover that other galaxies
in 1926 and to document 1927 the redshift of their spectrum that indicates they were moving away from us. Encyclopedia Britannica says about this. The implication of this discovery implications of this discovery were immense universe long considered static, was in fact expanding
mountains of hail in the sky.
Allah says in Surah nor
verse 43 Have you not seen how Allah makes the clouds move gently, then joins them together then makes them in a heat.
And you see raindrops issuing from their midst. He sends down hail from the sky from mountains of hail within it, causing the hair to fall on woombye wells and averting it from Bumi wells, mountains of hell.
What did that mean?
The Gulf News newspaper in Saudi Arabia carried the following items.
Earth is bathed by a steady cosmic rain of previously undetected objects from outer space that poor vast quantities of water into the atmosphere. According to a startling new evidence released Wednesday, the objects 20 to 40 tons snowballs. The size of two bedroom houses streak into the atmosphere by the 1000s each day, disintegrate harmlessly 600 to 15,000 miles up and deposit large clouds of water vapor that eventually falls on Earth as rain. According to Lewis, a frank of the University of Iowa, he led the research team that for the first time as captured images of these objects taken at both ultraviolet and visible wavelengths by Frank specially designed instruments
aboard NASA's year old polar scrape spacecraft.
How do we explain that?
In terms of fetal development, this is what many people stress when they're clarifying about the miraculous nature
of the grant, where it describes the evolution of the the fetus from the one cell, multiple cell needs like clot, you know, starting to form its limbs, etc, etc till it becomes complete.
When professor Dr. Keith Moore, a professor of embryology and chairman of the Department of anatomy at the University of Toronto and Canada, was asked to give his opinion regarding the information present in the crime concerning embryology. During the seventh medical conference in the Ma'am, in 1981. He said, it has been a great pleasure for me to help clarify statements in the crime, about human development. It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad from God or Allah.
Because almost all of this knowledge was only discovered
many centuries later.
This proves to me that Mohammed must have been a messenger of God or Allah.
They didn't convert to Islam, not a convert. So we're not hearing the words of Muslim is the words of a Christian
scholar, Professor, based on the fact that the descriptions given in the Quran of the, this the the embryo and its development, which could only be seen from microscopes, microscopes, it will not develop till 1000 years later
was clear evidence to somebody whose mind is open, that this was no ordinary book
in terms of the origin of life.
Water is essential for all living things. We all know that water is vital to life. But Allah in the Quran made a very unusual claim, he said, but john nominal Maggie Kula coalition, a
coalition Hey, a fella you may know
I created every living thing from water. Will you not then believe?
So Columbia, verse 30. The fact that living things consist mostly of water was only discovered after the invention of the microscope in the 17th century. Now scientists claim that 80% of the scientists cytoplasm of a standard living cell consists of water.
Not only do we
consist mostly of water, the very cells that make us up 80%.
another striking example is that of the Extra Terrestrial origin of iron.
Iron is the most abundant heavy metal in the universe.
It is a vital constituent of plant and animal life,
being an essential component of the red blood cells.
The red blood must molecule hemoglobin,
which causes strivings, is composed of.
However, according to modern scientists, iron is not natural to the earth.
all life on the earth is connected up to the iron, but iron
didn't form on the earth. It was not formed on the earth but came from outer space as iron bearing meteorites, which struck the earth from distant exploding stars billions of years ago. Our Sun is relatively small, lacking the tremendous energy needed to produce even one single atom of iron. Hence, all of the iron present in our solar system was formed in deep space. However, the Quran clearly identifies the extraterrestrial origin of iron saying, one zelner Hadid, three Batson chedid woman after earning das, I also sent down iron
with its mighty strength, and many uses for human guide.
First 25 of Surah haidet.
Now people might say, Okay, this is God, saying using this kind of flowery languages, you know, sat down and he said, aren't down
on the earth.
Maybe talking about other metals or whatever, you may use the same terminology when they're found on Earth.
Copper is mentioned three times in the crime.
And in none of those times,
is there any reference about it coming from outer space, as in the case of
another amazing fact is that
Islam, through the Quran speaks about
the roots of mountains. This is something very new. Only in the beginning of the 20th century, scientists developed the theory of plate tectonics, which was built on the newly discovered fact that mountains have deep stake like roots.
So for example, Mount Everest, whose height is approximately nine kilometres above the ground, has a route
in the crust of the earth, more than
125 kilometres deep, super analog. However, 1400 years ago, Accra and describes mountains as sticks. alumna Jalan Alba mahad while g Bala ow tada? Didn't I make the earth a resting place and the mountains like sticks sticking in the ground.
These few examples are just the tip of the iceberg. There are many other remarkably accurate statements about oceanography, geography, cosmology, cosmogony, physics, biology, embryology, entomology and hydrology, as well as other subjects in the Koran. There are many others.
So, in terms of the Quran,
being a miracle,
there is sufficient information from a variety of
avenues or approaches to confirm that.
The second principle of women by Paul
is to confirm were unique confirm the name,
a liar, where it is unique, and inapplicable
in this area,
what concerns us most is what is known as the eminent concept
on the basis of the false attributes of Divine Eminence, that God is everywhere.
Some claim that God was more in humans and in animals, vegetation or minerals. From that theory, it was only a matter of time before some claim that God was more in them than in the rest of humans, either by colluding, in dwelling of God in man or by it had complete unification between the human soul and Allah. So, so called so
among Muslim peoples of the ninth century at the range mystic and so called Saint by the name of Allah Khaled
openly declared that he and Allah were What?
Of course, it was tried,
found guilty. He refused to give up that claim and was executed.
In the SE rights a breakaway Shiite sect
of the ninth century claim the Prophet Muhammad SAW son and son in law Ali bin Abi taalib, was a manifestation of Allah.
This is why they are also called the Alawis. Or Allah White's
another breakoff Shiite sect of the 11th century called the Druze claim that the fourth image caliphal How can be umbrella.
He was in the
died in 1021. He
was the last incarnation of God among men.
This fatimid This is the name the 14 year they have the
State that ruled Egypt and part of North Africa for a number of years.
from the 13th century, also a so called Sufi saint of the 12th 13th century, exhorted his followers in his poetry to pray to themselves and not to anything outside of themselves, because he believed that God was inside man.
The same theory was the essence of Elijah Muhammad's claim in America that black people were all a law that we spoke about earlier.
That is meant to fraud. Mohammed was the Supreme Allied himself,
Reverend Jones, who killed himself 900 followers in Ghana, in 1979.
He also claimed to be God. People accepted Him
and there have been many others
these various claims of divinity were not limited to any particular place or religious group.
They simply took root wherever the soil was freaked out
if minds were already prepared by the belief in God's eminence, imminence in this creation, to accept the man God concept, and those who claimed
divinity could easily find followers.
So it may be concluded that the belief that allies everywhere
is extremely dangerous, primarily because it encourages and defends and rationalizes the greatest sin in our sight, that of worship of his creation.
It is also an aspect of shirking our heedless mousy fat and allows names and attributes shirk ideology,
the Divine Name of wire in particular, as
it claims that claim that Allah is everywhere, that an attribute of God
that this is an attribute of God is everywhere. And this is not true. It's cannot be found in the Quran or
moving on to the third principle of living but thought to have hope, wherever there is a promise.
The first linguistic meaning of the Divine Name Avaya is the helper.
It contains a promise of support from Allah to us. In many verses of the Quran,
Allah repeatedly promises to help humankind and the gym. However, he made the receipt of his divine health conditional declared he informed us that he will only provide special health for us if we help him.
General help which a lot grants to all of his creatures is unconditional.
As such, all of the creatures benefit from it all the time.
On the contrary, the special divine help which allow reserves for some of his creatures.
This is a conditional help.
Like he's helpful this prophets in times of need in order to receive it, we must help a law as he said, Yeah, you're Latina Amon, in dansereau, law and circle we have bit apadana are believers if you help Allah He will help you and make your steps firm. Surah Mohammed verse seven.
All sets also said what I answer run Allahu meillassoux. In the law, Allah we Yun Aziz, Allah will certainly help those who help him. Allah is all powerful, and mighty.
Surah Al Hajj, verse 40. Then Allah clarified the characteristics of those people whom He has promised His help and support saying
allatheena in McCann now home from out of a coma Salah zeca Well, I'm a ruble my roofie we're now annulment.
There are those who if I give them authority in the land, they established the prayer and establish Zakah
and enjoy what is right forbid what is wrong.
So al Hajj verse 41.
The meaning of the expression, believers support for Allah, his support for his religion and his scripture because obviously Allah does need support or help. How can we help
we help his religion,
his prophets to speed
their readiness to defend and promote Islam globally, and establish the Sharia in Muslim lands is what makes them eligible for a lot of special support. Consequently, no matter how difficult our situations may be, living in refugee camps in Syria, Bangladesh, Turkey, Jordan.
As long as we try our best to uphold Islam to the best of our abilities, Allah has promised his special now.
However, in order to receive it, we'll have to be patient and consistent in our prayers, and in commanding the good and prohibiting the evil wherever possible.
Allah also promises special divine help for those who specifically help
their fellow believers.
Abu huraira quoted above Solomon saying, Man Nafisa, meaning corba. Men COVID Dunia nafas Allahu anhu. Cora Cora baton min Cora.
On the Day of Judgment the law will remove one of the calamities from whomsoever removes one of the calamities of this world, from a fellow believer.
And he finished a statement saying, well, la houfy only lobby, McConnell, aberdyfi only
an ally helps his servant as long as the servant helps his brother.
This means that a lot of special granting of aid and support is dependent upon one's willingness to do likewise for one's brother or sister in faith and humanity
is a foolish or it's foolish for a Muslim to expect special help blessings from Allah if he or she has no concern for the welfare of their fellow Muslims and fellow most humans.
This principle is not limited to Muslims. It includes all human beings as well as even the animals. As above matzah. Solomon illustrated in a number of stories of those who went to paradise due to providing water for starving dogs to drink. Those who ended up in hell for starving cats to death
on one occasion, broadsoft Selamat said the believers are like one structure, each part supporting the other. I'll movement, little movement, California should do bah, bah bah. Then he put his fingers together
to show that strength.
In fact, even brothers, Muslims faith in God is in question
if he or she does not strive to help their unfortunate brothers and sisters. The Bible says Alan restated the golden rule of doing unto others as you'd have them do unto you in terms of faith and brotherhood as follows.
Live minowa hadoo hard time boulia he, Maya shabu NFC, none of us truly believed until he loves for his brother, but he loves for himself.
With such a rich background of faith, we should apply our laws attributes of being a lawyer, the helper to ourselves and become the true helpers to our fellow Muslims and to people in general. This is the high level of moral character, which almost EMS should strive for.
comes under the general heading of help.
All of the many prophetic instructors instructions, which enjoying charity also come under the general heading of help and support of others, which will earn us a lot of lawyers. Special divine help.
Being charitable is the most essential moral characteristic which one who seeks a lot of divine support needs to possess.
without it we end up giving support for show popularity and praise and all the other wrong reasons. The browser Salam quoted Allah smart Allah saying unfit Yep, naadam unfair Alec, spend in charity, or son of Adam and I would spend on you.
Those of us asking divine help, should believe that in being charged, we're actually fulfilling the right of the neediness. And not that we're doing them a favor, as Allah has already entitled charity
to them from us, referring to it as How can Lisa le Wilma through
the right of one who is destitute and begs regarding the can soda soda is only the voluntary version of zecca.
law here the sub duer
for fourth linguistic meaning of the Divine Name of via the sub dhuhr. The helper contains a lost promise of support to US based on his subjugation of creation for our benefit. In
the name of ah here.
The dominating sub Dewar contains a reminder of the incredible amazing gifts. Allah has given us by some during the creation for our use and pleasure.
And making them some doable. Without his subduing inference interference. Dogs wouldn't be man's best friend and cats woman's best friend. Norwood voices be fit for riding and donkeys and mules fit for getting our goods, cows, goats, buffaloes and camels. Not to mention a few just couldn't be milked.
Chickens wouldn't produce eggs for us to eat. No could we eat mutton and beef, we would not be able to use birds to carry messages. Nor would you be able to catch fish and enjoy the beauty of the coral reefs.
These animals we refer to as domesticated animals, meaning that they have been selectively bred and genetically adapted over generations to live alongside humans. They are genetically distinct from their wild ancestors or cousins. However, if Allah lawyer hadn't subdued them,
by making them in such a way that we could read them and raise them, we wouldn't have done so. nor would they live alongside as peacefully as they do.
Furthermore, Allah has also given us the power to dominate and subdue the remainder of creation. as Muslims this ability should be used for good not exploitation, as as many times been
done in the past 1000s of years. on countless occasions, we were liberated, who freed nations under oppression to rob them, development, freedom and justice. But when they accumulated earthly riches, changed our administrations into opulent corrupt kingdoms, our people suffered, and they even joined forces with our enemies to overthrow us. So after 700 years of Muslim rule in Spain, there was no longer call from the minarets mosques were turned into churches, and almost every last Muslim was driven from the country. Those who remained had to pretend they were Christians to survive, and in a generation or two they also disappeared. Likewise, Muslims ruled India for 1000 years. But today,
Muslims are beaten to death in the streets of India for slaughtering cows or eating beef or gatherings in mosques for the blaring gatherings.
So we should have hope
to grant the Muslim Omar success by utilizing the powers of subjugation which Allah has given us together as one global oma, in accordance with the guidelines of the Sharia. This is a loss divine promise, as he said, why the Lord Medina amanu minco family slowly had their stuff really fun at home, fill out camasta Medina, men calmly,
Allah has promised for those of you who believe and do good, that you will certainly make them successes in the land, as he did with those before them, who will surely establish their faith, which he has chosen for them, and will indeed change their fear into security, provided that they worship me without associating anything with me. Allah fulfilled his promise numerous numerous times in the past, and he can fulfill it again the present the future, and he will do so in the future. According to the prophecies, prophecies of the last prophet Muhammad SAW
could be called
because here, the name of via
means virtually the same as a coin.
And I'll call her that we took earlier on
the common method of teaching in Muslim religious schools, which has been the practice for many generations has been teaching with the stick.
Primarily the Quran is taught with the stick in the vast majority of addresses around the Muslim world, why lems or Muslim teachers and qura Muslim Quranic reciters in the positions of authority have abused generations of Muslim children in the name of teaching the
army This was certainly not the methodology of the province of Solomon his companions the testimony of provenance asylums companion warrior
as salami is definitive, he said regarding the progress on Salaam, Mara
To one lemon cobla who will Abbado senator lemon Minh for Allah He nakahara Kahani wala donovani when I shatter many, I have not seen a teacher before or after him who was better at teaching than him. And by Allah He didn't frown at me, hit me, no curse me.
Moving on to the last
of the principles, the four principles of Cuban Batali, which is to have fear where there is a warning.
There is also a warning in the Divine Name of via, according to its fourth linguistic meaning the subtour similar in meaning, as I said earlier to alcohol.
The forsure sub Dewar tamer
which we studied in session 17,
a lot of promises to subdue and overcome those who have broken his loss, even if there are laws for the individual benefit. But the problem Amazon sellers warning to the believers not to be extreme in practicing the religion.
The prophet SAW Selim further elaborated on this principle
of not being extreme to practicing Islam by adding another principle. That is enough, either deal.
Yes. Well, I you shared the dean, a hidden Illa Allah
in the Harvard Dean, yes. Well, I, you shot the dean, a hidden Illa Allah. Indeed, this religion is easy, and whoever makes it difficult, will be defeated by it. This prophetic warning is to avoid extremism in the religion from the perspective of the individual, who in his or her desire to do more acts of worship, in order to come closer to God become so extreme that he or she is unable to keep it up.
They can't keep up practicing at that pace. Eventually, the religion becomes such a burden for them, that they end up abandoning it altogether.
They end up abandoning it altogether. This is common.
Or it happens often enough among new converts, and born again, Muslims want to try to practice everything of Islam as soon as they find out Islam converted, reborn, they want to do everything possible. And of course, as I say, Rome wasn't built in a day, you have to do things gradually, an incident took place in the time the browser language led him to strongly speak out against this form of extremism. And he said Malik related that a group of companions of the process alum who came to his wives,
and asked them about the progress on Sam's mode of worship. When the wives informed them, they considered it little.
That's all so much that we need to
imitate, make efforts to it. But they said, Where, where are we relative to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu, Allah has forgiven his past sins and his usual things. So one of them said, I will not marry women. Another one said I will not eat meat. Another one said I will not sleep on a bed. And yet another one said, I will fast and not break my fast.
When user that reached promises on them, he gathered the people together and praise the Lord and said, What is the matter with people who say such things? When I pray, and I see, I fast and I break my fast and I married women. Whoever turns away from my sooner is not of me. And Raghava Ancelotti, fillet some in
this case, their extreme practice, if imitated by others would have put a great burden on the whole community, most of whom would not be able to keep up with them. In such a case, the practice of Islam would have become so burdensome, that it would overcome them and lead them to despair and abandonment of Islam. So the browser Salam sternly warned his overzealous followers to desist from such extreme behavior, even though it was in and of itself permissible.
That's everything that Allah is prescribed regarding worship and business transactions in the Sharia can be handled by all people under normal conditions.
Then the almighty Avaya reduced the requirement.
For those who are sick, traveling, all the poor, females young and old
youngsters, those who are
disabled etc. They're excused to annum from a number of the requirements
due to their and abilities. All of that is a part of a loss being avoided the supporter who easily accommodates all of the needs of his creatures. This is also why a lot denounced and forbade monasticism. celibacy, as it defeats many of those who tried to do it or tried to maintain it. But monasticism, so where are headed verse 27, but Gnosticism was something they invented. I did not ordain it from them. Allah says, I only ordained that they seek a lot of pleasure, and even so, they did not observe it properly.
The fact that today, the Catholic Church is currently facing a delusion of court cases all around the world involving pedophilia and homosexuality among priests, bishops and cardinals, is sufficient evidence that monasticism is beyond the ability of most
Not to mention the extremes of Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. evident in the aesthetic life of the saddles, who represent the peak or pinnacle of spirituality by wandering in the streets of India completely naked, begging the worldly people after renouncing the world.
Many nation Allah describes the Muslim nation as one following the middle path or the golden mean, far away from excess and extremism. coca donica janicoo mutton was a dog with a Cooney shuhada Allah Nasir punarvasu alaykum shahida thus I've made you a justly balanced nation, to be a witness for the nations and the messenger of witness for you. So Al Baqarah, verse 143.
This divinely ordained balance can only be maintained through proper knowledge of the religion, for ignorance always provides fertile grounds for deviation and extremism.
With that, we close our session
