00:03:05--> 00:03:06

main session

00:03:08--> 00:03:09

sha Allah

00:03:17--> 00:03:18

and we will begin

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

session 55

00:03:25--> 00:03:31

about the hidden or the inner name number 78.

00:03:33--> 00:03:35

In terms of Quranic location,

00:03:36--> 00:03:42

like the three names previous our will are here for VA here.

00:03:45--> 00:03:46

They are mentioned

00:03:47--> 00:03:54

along with albertan only once in the Quran and that's in Surah Al Hadid verse three.

00:03:56--> 00:04:09

Well, our Louisville hero was I hit one mountain, but who are the coolessay in the alley is the first and the last, the outer and the inner and he has knowledge of all things.

00:04:11--> 00:04:12

linguistically,

00:04:13--> 00:04:20

Barton comes from the trilateral route by Paul Nolan.

00:04:22--> 00:04:29

The verbal noun from it is buttons, which literally means belly or abdomen.

00:04:30--> 00:04:42

And it has two main meanings. The first meaning is to be concealed or to lie hidden. And the second is to be inside and to penetrate into

00:04:44--> 00:04:53

this root appears some 25 times in the Quran and five derived forms. Examples of these forms are batana

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

is concealed to Tony the wounds

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

Barton who its interior,

00:05:05--> 00:05:11

Martin is the present participle and the normal file pattern

00:05:12--> 00:05:14

from bopanna.

00:05:15--> 00:05:16

linguistically,

00:05:17--> 00:05:19

Vahid and Barton

00:05:20--> 00:05:22

are opposites,

00:05:23--> 00:05:28

where the head refers to that which is manifest and apparent.

00:05:29--> 00:05:36

Mountain refers to that which is inward hidden and concealed.

00:05:40--> 00:05:41

Both

00:05:43--> 00:05:45

opposites of each other,

00:05:47--> 00:05:53

united in the perfect attributes of Allah azza wa jal

00:05:54--> 00:05:58

who is both a lawyer and adopted,

00:05:59--> 00:06:14

he is the manifest, everything becomes manifest through him only. And through his science, we know him, yet we cannot perceive him in this world is hidden from our site

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

relative to Allah.

00:06:18--> 00:06:23

According to the famous Quranic commentator, even jarier. A debris

00:06:24--> 00:06:32

being aborted means that he is inside everything, so much so that there's nothing closer

00:06:33--> 00:06:41

to anything than himself, he is closer to everything, then everything else.

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

However, this is not in reference to a loss be his essence. Instead in refers to laws, knowledge and power, having no bounds the thoughts of a law

00:06:56--> 00:07:06

the thoughts of all human beings are totally exposed to a law and even the emotional states of their hearts are subject to laws control.

00:07:08--> 00:07:41

This is the light in which the few verses that allude to a loss closeness should be understood. For example, not for the color canal in Santa Ana Allah Mamata was wished to be enough sue for national uporabo la mina Hamelin worried Indeed, I created humans, and know what their souls whisper for I'm closer to them than their juggler veins sore, a cough or a 16.

00:07:43--> 00:08:04

If only the last part of the verse is considered, it would imply that a lies inside every human being, as we all have juggler veins inside of our necks. However, the first part of the verse sets the context as intimate knowledge of our innermost thoughts.

00:08:06--> 00:08:35

In a similar context, regarding a lost knowledge of what thoughts arise in the human heart, He also stated why alemu and Elia hold aubaine and Murray, welcome wakatobi Well, I know la Hito Sharon, and know well that a lot of comes between a man and his heart. For to him, you will be gathered through Allen fall or is 24.

00:08:36--> 00:08:39

These and similar verses simply imply

00:08:40--> 00:08:54

that Nothing escapes a laws knowledge, even the innermost thoughts of humans and nothing is beyond his power to control and change. Even the emotional states of the heart.

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

Allah said

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

once guru near met Allah He

00:09:02--> 00:09:21

is going to and for Allah binaca lubicon. Pass back to him, Vinnie Amati Juana remember when you were enemies, and he put love between your hearts and by His grace you became brothers who are Ollie Moran is 103.

00:09:23--> 00:09:36

As a result of that intimate divine proximity, the promise Arsalan often used to pray saying Yama, Pan LaBelle. kulu Sabbath lb Allah denecke

00:09:38--> 00:09:55

all changer of hearts steady my heart, on your religion, according to as a judge, were Marian linguistically Barton also means one who knows the innermost aspects of something

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

with regard to this application, according to

00:10:00--> 00:10:14

Bill McDowell's four principles The first being to adopt where applicable, the Divine Name about in the hidden the animals may be adopted and applied

00:10:15--> 00:10:16

in

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

two basic ways.

00:10:21--> 00:10:25

The first is to hide some of our good deeds.

00:10:26--> 00:10:28

And the second is to conceal

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

our sins. That's how we can apply it by hiding some of our good needs

00:10:37--> 00:10:41

and by concealing our sins.

00:10:42--> 00:11:04

So, the first way to conceal the deeds, what we call hidden charity, for example, there is a general recommendation from a lion upon that to hide our charitable acts from public scrutiny is better, meaning more rewardable than making them known to others.

00:11:06--> 00:11:15

In to do so the heart finally I'm here, we're into fuwa, or to alpha or alpha who are higher on lakum.

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

To give public chai tea is good.

00:11:20--> 00:11:29

But to give the poor privately is better for you. And it will absolve you of your sins.

00:11:30--> 00:11:33

Your cafe, your uncle, mean, say article,

00:11:36--> 00:12:24

even if you said the words, but if you conceal them your charitable expenditures, and give them to the poor, it's better for you indicates that giving charity secretly is better than doing so openly. Because it is further removed from showing off, unless doing it openly will serve a clear interest, such as causing people to follow one's example. In that case, it is better in that regard. According to share, it will mean the one who tells people about his righteous deeds will have one or two possible motives. The first motive

00:12:26--> 00:12:45

is to praise ourselves by seeking the admiration of those around us. Now, obviously that is not good. So whenever we get the opportunity we will openly talk about how much we're doing for Islam and Muslims and the poor and families and etc, etc.

00:12:47--> 00:13:03

This is a very serious matter falling under the heading of Raya minor ship, which could lead to the invalidation of our good deeds, according to the prophet SAW salams explanation in the well known Hadith regarding

00:13:04--> 00:13:11

the first three groups of Muslims thrown in hell, being scholars, benefactors and martyrs.

00:13:12--> 00:13:24

Furthermore, Allah himself has specifically forbidden his worshippers from claiming themselves to be purified and saintly, saying for latos aku amphis

00:13:26--> 00:13:37

Allah mobile money taco, so do not sanctify yourselves, Allah knows best, those who truly Ferrand so our najem verse 32.

00:13:39--> 00:13:58

The second motive is to speak about our laws favours in our lives, with the intention of using ourselves as examples to encourage other people around us to follow our lead. This is a truly praiseworthy goal, as it is based also on our laws instruction.

00:13:59--> 00:14:29

Well, I'm a matter of bigger 402 at the Harvard's 11 and proclaim the Blessings of your Lord proclaim them publicly announced the public announcement of ones with these is also supported by the province outside lumps encouraging proclamation for those who are first to do good. Saying man sunless Phil Islam is soon at an Hasina

00:14:31--> 00:14:35

for Amina ba, ba, ba who

00:14:36--> 00:14:44

kuti Bella who miss Lu a journeyman ami lobby ha, well, I am cuso min. Buju re him che

00:14:47--> 00:14:53

Weber introduces a good practice in Islam, which was followed after him by people.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

He would be assured of reward like that of the one who followed it.

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

Without their rewards being diminished in any respect.

00:15:05--> 00:15:36

In order to begin a good sooner, one has to inform others so that they can adopt it and follow suit unless it's something which is by actions alone sufficient to cause people to want to follow. Consequently, in such situations, it is necessary that the general public be informed in order for them to participate in the righteous act.

00:15:39--> 00:15:47

With regards to silent recitation of the Quran, the prophets are seldom had said,

00:15:48--> 00:15:53

Elijah hero will call Ronnie Kolja hitty visarpa.

00:15:54--> 00:16:06

While miserable for Annie, Cal Missouri, the sadhaka the one who writes besides the Qur'an allowed, there's like one who gives charity in public.

00:16:07--> 00:16:14

The one who reads the Quran quietly is like the one who gives Charlie charity discreetly.

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

So recitation of the Quran with an audible voice is good.

00:16:21--> 00:17:07

And so as it's quiet recitation, Mr. TV noted that there are narrations and comments of scholars that address the virtual one besides the crying aloud, and other reports that speak of the virtue of doing so quietly. In order to reconcile both, we may generally conclude that reading the Quran quietly is better for one who fears showing off Ria. On the other hand, reciting it aloud is better for one who is not afraid of Ria uncondition that he does not disturb others, whether they're praying or sleeping in the masjid, teaching or so on and so forth.

00:17:08--> 00:17:20

The reason why reading aloud is preferable in Arabic communities is because reading aloud can reach others and benefit them like those who deliberately listen,

00:17:22--> 00:17:38

learn or reflect on the meanings. And because it also helps the reader reciter to focus and reflect upon the meanings. Furthermore, it also dispels sleepiness and motivates others to worship.

00:17:39--> 00:17:44

If anyone has such purposes in mind, then reading aloud is better.

00:17:46--> 00:17:50

With regards to praising people,

00:17:51--> 00:18:05

was not related to the Messenger of Allah was once asked, What do you think of a man who does a good deed and people praise him for it? He replied, that is a part of the reward which is hastened for the believer in this world.

00:18:07--> 00:18:13

A person speaks of allows favors in his life, in the acceptable manner prescribed

00:18:14--> 00:19:02

earlier, and people praise him for it. And he appreciates the praise, because intention is never to show off, and make people aware of his righteous deeds, then this praise of theirs is like a reward. That is hastened for the believer. According to the prophets, Allah. What is also meant by hastening the reward for the believer, can also be that if the believer does righteous deeds for the sake of Allah, and people find out about them without him intending that they be known, or without intending to show off to people, then after finding out that people praise Him and speak well of him, and he appreciates that it is an early reward for the good he or she

00:19:03--> 00:19:04

has done.

00:19:07--> 00:19:09

The problem is our solemn also

00:19:10--> 00:19:18

categorized seven major categories of hidden deeds, and then good deeds.

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

And a well known had these

00:19:23--> 00:19:24

in which he praised

00:19:26--> 00:19:31

seven individuals who represented really seven categories he said,

00:19:32--> 00:19:39

seven will be shaded by Allah Almighty Allah de, when there will be no other shade besides his shade.

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

Just ruler, a youth who grows up worshipping Allah, a man whose heart is attached to the mosques, to men who love each other for the sake of a law. They meet on the basis of it and separate on the basis of it. A man who is invited by a woman of high position beauty, and he replies Indeed, I

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

Fear of law

00:20:01--> 00:20:42

a man who gives charity and hides it so much so that his left hand is unaware of what his right hand gave a man who remembers a lie in private, and his eyes become filled with tears. All of these seven categories share common characteristics, which link them together and made them share the ultimate reward of success, and having access to the shade granted by alarm the last day when the sun will be brought so close to human beings, waiting for the judgment that many will even drown in their own sweat.

00:20:43--> 00:20:48

There are two basic characteristics one is the love and fear of a law taqwa.

00:20:49--> 00:20:55

And the other is the consciousness of a law and doing hidden acts of righteousness.

00:20:56--> 00:21:17

So the just rulers integrity will not be realized without a strong consciousness of Allah. Furthermore, his rule will only be fairly implemented due to his fear of Allah, from oppressing his people, or from seeking what would unfairly perpetuate his rule.

00:21:19--> 00:22:12

None of his subjects have any authority over him, as he is the ultimate authority. The only supreme authority is Allah. From another aspect, no one knows the reality of His justice, except Allah. As Allah said, will love We are now moving move Siddha mineral moustache, and Allah knows who is corrupt and who is truly a reformer. So Al Baqarah verse 220, the case of the righteous youth who grows up worshipping Allah, no one knows the secret of his sincerity, the hidden good, which is engaged in besides Allah, no one sees him under all conditions, open and secret except Allah. Such a youth sincerely desires a loss of pleasure and is mindful of his displeasure.

00:22:13--> 00:22:39

The man whose heart is tied to the masks as a heart free from addiction to worldly gain, or women in marriage or status. Instead, he loves the mask only because it is pleasing to Allah. And due to the due to what he tasted, of the sweetness of Allah, his company and his house, his secret good is his prayer.

00:22:40--> 00:22:59

We should note that the prophet SAW Selim referred to the attachment of his heart, and not the attachment of his body, his hearing or sight, because the sweetness of faith takes place fundamentally in the heart. And the most powerful agent in attaching

00:23:01--> 00:23:08

and attaching our hearts to the masjid is the prayer itself. As the prophet SAW Selim himself and said, Would you are a lot

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

poorer to ayeni, for Salah, my prayer was made most pleasurable to me.

00:23:18--> 00:23:41

As for those who love each other for the sake of Allah, no financial dealings between them, no family relations connecting them, no mutual benefit driving them besides Allah. Only Allah knows the reality of their mutual advice. Their meetings are for the sake of Allah and their partings are likewise, the essence of their secret good

00:23:44--> 00:23:50

is that nothing between them occurs which is displeasing, to a lot.

00:23:52--> 00:24:18

The one who gives, charity secretly overcomes his greed or wealth, greed for wealth, and his desire for praise. The greatest drive to give secretly without any compensation or return is the desire for what Allah has promised. Hiding chai tea purifies the heart

00:24:19--> 00:24:23

of showing off and is the goal of seeking Allah.

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

As for one who cries out of the fear of Allah, is expressly stated in the text, that he remembers a lion Christ in practice. No one sees him but Allah is only out of his fear of Allah regarding the sins of his past, or his fear of Allah,

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

of what Allah will do with him in the future. As Allah said, while Edina home men are Daddy, robbing him, most people and those fearing the punishment

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

have their Lord through marriage. Verse 27.

00:25:05--> 00:25:11

What even will not be a eighth century

00:25:12--> 00:25:14

scholar of Islam.

00:25:15--> 00:25:17

Students of the companions

00:25:18--> 00:25:26

sincerely advises son regarding the great importance of hidden good deeds, saying, Oh my son,

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

purify your acts of obedience for a law by devoting and developing a sincere inner reality that affirms the deeds you have done outwardly, for Allah.

00:25:40--> 00:25:50

As for your good acts done in public, do not think that there are greater means of salvation than your secret good deeds.

00:25:51--> 00:26:00

The similitude, between public good and secret good, is like the similitude of the leaves of a tree and its roots.

00:26:01--> 00:26:03

The public good deed is like the leaf.

00:26:05--> 00:26:24

And the secret good deed is like the root, the root becomes rotten and dies, the whole tree is destroyed, including its leaves, and it's strong. But if the roots are healthy, the whole tree becomes fit, including its fruits, and its leaves.

00:26:25--> 00:26:34

So the appearance of the tree remains good, so long as its hidden roots are good in spite inspite of nothing being seen of them.

00:26:35--> 00:26:37

Likewise, the dean the religious,

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

the religiosity of a person remains good as long as his inner

00:26:45--> 00:26:46

righteousness

00:26:49--> 00:26:50

is reality.

00:26:51--> 00:26:57

As reality, it agrees with his righteous ness in his public actions

00:26:58--> 00:27:02

supposedly done for the sake of Allah.

00:27:03--> 00:27:19

his inner, hidden reality should be one of righteousness, which agrees with his righteous public actions, which everybody sees, and which are supposed to be solely for Allah.

00:27:21--> 00:27:28

for public deeds benefit from hidden actions in the same way that the roots benefit the tree.

00:27:30--> 00:27:56

Thus, if the Leafs life, preceded that of the root, the branches would have been merely for decoration and beauty, but it does not. Similarly, if the hidden deed or reality is the foundation of the deen, then the public need will only beautify the deen if a believer does it seeking only the pleasure of his Lord, or Lord.

00:27:59--> 00:28:00

On the other hand,

00:28:01--> 00:28:03

Osama even sherek

00:28:04--> 00:28:07

go to the processor limit saying,

00:28:09--> 00:28:14

Do not do in secret, what you would dislike people to see you doing.

00:28:16--> 00:28:19

That's a rule of thumb to go by.

00:28:21--> 00:28:39

closing this thought the difference between hidden worship and secret worship should be grasped. There is a subtle difference between hidden and secret worship, in that every secret Act is a hidden act. But not every hidden Act is a secret Act.

00:28:40--> 00:29:08

The hidden act of worship is one done out of the sight of people, but the people may know about it. For instance, a person may pray in a room alone, hidden from the sight of people, but they know he's praying in the room. Similarly, a person may fast without anyone knowing but his wife. However, a secret after worship is one which no one but a law knows about.

00:29:10--> 00:29:16

The person exerts his or her effort, keep to keep it that way.

00:29:19--> 00:29:20

The second

00:29:22--> 00:29:38

way of applying the name is to conceal our sins as we said in the beginning, the Divine Name about in the hidden also refers to a lost knowledge of all things hidden from his creation. He is an alim the all knowing

00:29:40--> 00:29:56

and has informed us to avoid sin and corruption whether open or hidden. Little inner Mahara murghab bl for wha heisha. Mahara minha whoa my baton. Say my lord is completely hidden

00:29:57--> 00:29:58

from us.

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

Sorry, say my lord has completely forbidden, open and secret in the senses through Allah offers 33

00:30:10--> 00:30:22

the prophets Allah warned that exposing our sins to others would lead us to being denied a loss forgiveness. Because exposing our sins generally means that we are proud of them.

00:30:23--> 00:30:37

So those who do so, are most likely not interested in forgiveness. Furthermore, broadcasting one sins encourages others, especially the weak minded and the low spirited

00:30:38--> 00:31:14

to commit similar since the Bible Solomon said, Every one of my followers will be forgiven, except those who openly expose their wrongdoings. An example of this is that a man who commits a sin at night which Ally's covered for him, and then the morning he proclaims it to the people saying I committed such and such a sin last night, even though law had kept it a secret. During the night a lot covered it but in the morning, he tore up the cover provided by himself.

00:31:15--> 00:31:49

On one hand, we should feel too ashamed to brag about our since we don't feel shy, it means that our hearts are spiritually and emotionally dead. And we are seriously in need of help, on the other hand, are boasting about our sins to others, puts these ideas in their minds and hearts and may lead to lead them to commit similar or worse sins. In that way, we become like a virus infecting and corrupting all who we need, and who listen attentively to our spiritual and emotional sicknesses.

00:31:50--> 00:31:52

Moving on to the second

00:31:53--> 00:32:49

principle of even batol. To confirm where unique and inapplicable are bought in the hidden is completely hidden from the site of creation. This attribute of invisibility is unique to Allah alone. All of his creatures are visible, except himself. He has chosen to remain unseen to all of his creatures in this life. Consequently, those not following divine revelation have created countless images of God and engage in idolatry from the earliest of times, as a result of satanic delusion. Prophet Muhammad wa sallam described in vivid detail the process by which policy is in first found its way among human guide. After generations of monotheism, which began with Prophet

00:32:49--> 00:32:50

Adam.

00:32:51--> 00:33:15

The prophet SAW Selim his companions relayed to us the picture in their explanation of the verse, where in a lot is scribe the reaction of non noise people, when he invited them to the worship of only one God. They said to each other surah, no. Verse 23, well, corlew, lots and

00:33:16--> 00:33:30

lots of aroma. Ali had to go, Well, I only had a call. They said to each other, do not leave your Gods do not give up what? So our lawyer who's another.

00:33:32--> 00:33:41

The commentary on this verse, the commentator of the Prophet, companions, even Abbas said, these were idols of Noah's nation,

00:33:43--> 00:34:24

which in time ended up among the Arabs. These idols were named after some righteous men from Norse people. When these righteous men died, Satan inspired the people to make statues of them bearing their names. These statues are placed in their favorite meeting places as reminders of their righteousness, and no one of that generation worship them. However, when that generation died off, and the purpose of the statues were forgotten, Satan came back to the sentence and told them that their forefathers used to worship the statues. And because of that worship of the statues, it rained regularly.

00:34:26--> 00:34:29

The descendants were fooled and began to worship them as idols

00:34:30--> 00:34:35

and following generations that came after them, continue that worship.

00:34:37--> 00:34:40

However, humans and the genes

00:34:42--> 00:34:50

have limited mental capacities. As a result, they can only visualize what they have seen.

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

On the other hand, a lie is limitless. Therefore humans and the jinn cannot properly understand anything about the law.

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

Except that a lot except what Allah chooses to reveal to them.

00:35:06--> 00:35:17

If human beings tried to picture a lie in their minds, they will definitely go astray. Because a lie is different from anything humans can conceive.

00:35:19--> 00:35:26

As promised, I'll send them describe paradise as being what no is ever seen.

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

No error has ever heard, nor is it even crossed the mind, of any human being.

00:35:36--> 00:36:03

That's the things of Paradise, Allah, greater, beyond all of that is inconceivable. Any image of God, which humans construct in their minds, will be based on some part of creation, or a composite of created things which they have observed, like the elephant headed God with the human body, Lord Ganesha of the Hindus,

00:36:05--> 00:36:06

the God of good luck.

00:36:07--> 00:36:55

Thus, if they try to picture a lie in their mind, they will end up giving a lot the attributes of Miss creation, which is the grave sin of [???]. For those accustomed to worshipping false images of God, they often ask how are Muslims able to worship God without an image to focus on whether it is the right or wrong image. The fact is, that it is possible for human beings to intellectually and emotionally understand a lot of attributes, and how they operate in human life and to worship him based on our guided understanding. As a result, Allah has revealed some of his divine attributes to humankind, and the jinn kind to facilitate his worship, the worship of him,

00:36:56--> 00:37:20

for example, accorded the all powerful, which means that there is nothing which a lot is unable to do. So he is worshipped unseen, as all Martin, while sincerely believing that he, as Al Qadir can relieve or rectify any situation we may face if he chooses to do so.

00:37:22--> 00:37:41

Similarly, we worship Allah as a rock man, the Most Merciful without seeing him by seeking His grace in our prayers, while believing that there is nothing in creation, which has not been blessed by His mercy, whether they deserve it or not.

00:37:42--> 00:37:51

Such an understanding does not require any form of pictorial representation, in order to be sincere in our worship of God.

00:37:52--> 00:38:04

This is the only way of understanding how the human mind can correctly conceive of Allah and worship him without seeing him as he is about him. They had

00:38:06--> 00:38:55

a confused understanding of the boundaries, within which Allah may be conceived by human beings was one of the main factors which led the early Christian converts of recent Rome, far away from the two teachings of Prophet Jesus. Early Europeans who embraced Christianity is put pictures and statues of God in the churches and trains when God was depicted as an old European patriarch, with a long flowing white beard. In contrast, the early Christians of Palestine who came from Jewish backgrounds, they're also known as Jewish Christians, in which any pictorial representation of the Creator was strictly forbidden, the Torah rights strictly forbidden.

00:38:58--> 00:38:59

These

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

maintained that practice of not depicting God in images. However, European Christians went astray, in this respect due to their long historical tradition of representing their gods and human forms, because of their dependence on distorted interpretations of Jewish Scriptures for religious guidance. The best example can be found in Genesis, the first book of the Torah, where a man's creation was described as Then God said, Let us make a man in our image, after our likeness. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God, he created in Genesis 126, verses 26 and 27 from these verses,

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

And others like them early European Christians concluded that the scriptures taught that God looks like a man in the same way that they portrayed their mythological gods looking like men and goddesses like women. Consequently, they expanded much wealth and time and energy, portraying God in human form and statues, carvings and paintings. In the Quran, Allah makes it very clear that nothing we can think of is like, Allah says laser camouflage I was Sameer almasi. There's nothing similar to him, but he sees and hears all. While I'm Jaco Khufu and I heard there's nothing comparable to him. That's why I floss was for previous was surah Shura verse 11.

00:40:52--> 00:41:02

After making it clear, that God is not like anything in his creation, a lot goes on to inform us that human eyesight cannot grasp it.

00:41:03--> 00:41:33

He said in the Quran, lad to director who absorbed well Who are you to absorb? no vision can grasp him, but he grasps all the swirl an arm, verse 103. In order to portray God in human form, or in any form or image, he would need to be seen or have been seen by humans. However, this divine declaration

00:41:34--> 00:41:48

clearly explains that the nature of unboxing the hidden and is related divine attributes is that human beings and the jinn are totally incapable of viewing His divine being.

00:41:49--> 00:41:54

Furthermore, in order to further emphasize this fact, a lot related in the

00:41:55--> 00:41:58

pertinent incident from the life of Prophet Moses.

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

That's inshallah are off. Verse 143. And when Moses came to our appointed meeting place, and his Lord spoke to him, he said, My Lord, show me yourself so I may gaze upon you. God replied, you cannot see me. But look at the mountain. If it remains in its place, you will see me. However, when his Lord revealed His glory to the mountain, it was crushed into dust, and Moses fell down unconscious. When he regained his consciousness, he said, Glory beyond to you, I turn to you repentant. And I'm the first of the true believers. Robert Moses, it might have been allowed to see God since Allah preferred him over the rest of humankind of that time by choosing him to receive

00:42:51--> 00:42:52

divine revelation.

00:42:53--> 00:43:11

But a law made it very clear to him that it was impossible for him or anyone else to do so. No human being orgin could bear the overwhelming intensity of seeing even a portion of a loss glory, much less the totality of a loss being.

00:43:12--> 00:43:22

When the mountain disintegrated. Moses realize his error and begged the last forgiveness for requesting something which was not permitted.

00:43:24--> 00:43:43

On the other hand, did Prophet Muhammad SAW Salam CMR some Muslims have felt that an exception was made in the case of the last of the Prophet, Muhammad sallahu Salah, whom Allah cause to travel up to the heavens, and go even beyond the point where angels are allowed to go.

00:43:44--> 00:43:56

However, when the prophet SAW Selim his wife, Aisha was asked by one of the top scholars amongst students of the Sahaba by the name of Masaru.

00:43:57--> 00:43:58

If Allah

00:43:59--> 00:44:02

had allowed Prophet Muhammad's as alum to see him,

00:44:04--> 00:44:05

they asked directly

00:44:06--> 00:44:09

the driver knows our solemn sees Lord,

00:44:10--> 00:44:20

she replied, knock out the tough shotty. Nema called my year is standing on end because of what you asked.

00:44:22--> 00:44:29

man had duck, Anna mohammedans Elias lm Rama for the cat that

00:44:31--> 00:44:37

was our response. Whoever tells you that Mohammed Salam sighs Lord has lied.

00:44:38--> 00:44:59

Furthermore, when I was on Ask the prophet SAW Selim, if he saw his Lord the prophet SAW sudden replied, new rune and Nah, there was only light. How could I see him? A Buddha reported that On another occasion the prophet SAW Selim explained that Allah is veiled from his creation by light

00:45:00--> 00:45:21

And that ally himself was not late. Dakota the process Allah saying, Verily Allah does not sleep, nor is it befitting for him to sleep. He is the one who lowers the scales and raises them the deeds of the night go up to him before the deeds of the day. And those of the day before the those of the Knights

00:45:23--> 00:45:28

why ajamu undo and is veil is light.

00:45:30--> 00:45:38

Does it can be said with certainty that Prophet Mohammed salam, like the province before him did not see a lot about it in this life.

00:45:39--> 00:45:47

Based on this fact, the many claims of mystics who claim that they have seen a lie in this life is proven utterly false.

00:45:48--> 00:45:59

If the prophets whom God prayed preferred over all of humankind, were unable to see him How could any man no matter how righteous and pious he may be? I've seen him.

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

The claim that one has seen God is in fact, a statement of heresy and disbelief, because it implies that one who makes the claim is greater than the profits themselves.

00:46:14--> 00:46:35

We should note that, it has been noted that in spite of the previously mentioned clear evidence, there is a group of Muslim scholars who have mistakenly interpreted some Quranic verses from Surah najem. In support of the claim that Muhammad wa sallam saw Allah.

00:46:36--> 00:47:27

So I imagine verses seven to 14, when he was on the uppermost horizon, then he came close and descended, until he was to both lands away or closer. And he revealed to his slave, that which he revealed, the heart did not lie about what it saw, when you ID with him about what he saw. And verily he saw him yet another time, by the load tree of the uppermost boundaries, they assert, that's the najem through an agent versus seven to 14. They assert that these verses are in reference to profit promises and and seeing a law. However, one must look as the promises Alan's wife about these verses, she replied, I was the first person of the oma

00:47:28--> 00:47:56

to ask the Messenger of Allah about that. And he replied, indeed, it was gibreel. That's what we saw the last piece be on him. I never saw him in the form in which he was created, except on two occasions. I saw him ascending or descending from the heavens, and the greatness of his size filled all that was between the sky and the earth.

00:47:58--> 00:48:36

The nyesha said, haven't you heard that the law most highest said, sight cannot catch him, but he catches all sight. And he is the subtle, the aware. And I've never heard that the law said the law will not speak to any man, except by inspiration, or from behind the veil, or by sending a messenger that is an angel. So our Shura was 51. Consequently, these verses from Surah najem, when considered in the light of the prophet SAW, sometimes own explanation, do not in any way support the mistaken belief that the prophet SAW as a lump saw Allah.

00:48:37--> 00:49:29

The question is, what is the wisdom behind not seeing a law in this life, it will be so much simpler if we're able to see him. But if God could be seen in this life, the tests of this life would become pointless. What makes this life a real test is the fact that we are obliged to believe in a law without actually seeing him. If Allah were visible, everyone would believe in him and all of the prophets thought. In fact, humans and the jinn would end up just like angels, living in total obedience of Allah. Because Allah created human beings capable of superseding the level of the ages, whose beliefs in Allah was without choice. Human beings choice of belief over this belief, had to be

00:49:29--> 00:49:40

in a situation where our laws existence could be questioned and rejected. Thus Allah and Martin has kept himself unseen from the site

00:49:41--> 00:49:51

or from the capabilities of human and Jen site, he will continue to do so until the last day.

00:49:53--> 00:49:57

The third principle of even batal

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

with regards to seeing a law

00:50:01--> 00:50:02

In the next life

00:50:03--> 00:50:17

is that although sorry, the third principle I'm giving batol is to have hope, where there is a promise to have hope, where there is a promise in the name.

00:50:19--> 00:50:30

Now, although no one will see ally in this life, and that's what the name of Martin says, There are evidences which indicate,

00:50:31--> 00:51:02

and the tests of life require. The vast majority of Muslim scholars believe that in the life to come, those of us go into paradise women facce Allah will not be recreated. As we are now with our current limitations, as a promise Our solemn has informed us and seeing Allah will be the greatest reward for last creatures among the humans and the jinn. For having passed the tests of this life,

00:51:04--> 00:51:15

the main Muslim sex of the past was denied that a law will be seen in the next life, or the jack might, the Morteza lights, most of us don't even know where they are,

00:51:16--> 00:51:18

and their followers amongst the average.

00:51:19--> 00:52:05

In present times, only the 12 or Shiites and the body of a man continued to deny that humans will see a lie in the next slide. However, there are numerous references in the graph. And the sooner we're aligned is messenger, I've clearly stated that all human beings will be blessed to see God in the next life as the greatest reward for successfully passing the tests of this life. For example, in describing some of the events of the day of resurrection, a lot clearly describes the faces of the believers staring at God, saying, we'll do one yoma even now lit up in our ob behind now zero.

00:52:07--> 00:52:51

On that day, some choices would be bright, looking at their Lord Surah Al qiyamah, verse 2223, processor Lamb has been even more explicit about this amazing event. When he was asked by some of his companions, will we see our Lord on the dam, just a resurrection outside the country related, but the promises on them when he was asked that? He replied, do you have any difficulty in seeing the sun and the moon and the sky is clear? We replied, No. He said, so you will have no difficulty in seeing your Lord on that day. As you have no difficulty in seeing the sun and the moon in the clear sky today.

00:52:54--> 00:53:03

On another occasion, the prompts are seldom said Verily, each one of you will see Alon the day when you must meet him. And there will be

00:53:04--> 00:53:10

no one or thing between you and him.

00:53:12--> 00:53:14

Not even a translator.

00:53:16--> 00:53:18

Neither avail, nor a translator.

00:53:22--> 00:53:49

Jerry or even Abdullah once said once, when sitting with the promises, and then he looked up at the full moon, and said, you will see your Lord as you see this full moon and you will have no trouble in seeing him. So if you can avoid missing the prayer before sunset, before sunrise, that's fudger and the prayer before sunset, that is awesome. do so.

00:53:51--> 00:54:27

And even though my call to the process and also as saying, the Day of Resurrection will be the first day that any I will look at our law most great and glorious. So cinema is a special additional blessing for the people of paradise. This additional favor is itself greater than all of the pleasures which Allah has in store for the righteous inheritors of the gardens of Paradise. A lot refers to this additional pleasure saying la home Maya una Fie. While adenomas eat,

00:54:29--> 00:54:36

they will have whatever they wish there is with us something additional.

00:54:38--> 00:54:39

So on top,

00:54:41--> 00:54:42

verse 35,

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

two on the private side sometimes most notable companions, olive and Vitaly bananas were both reported to explain that the additional thing which alar referred to here is looking at him looking at the law, the compliance so him reported that

00:55:00--> 00:55:11

On another occasion, Allah's Messenger recited the verse Lin Latina Arsenal persona was Jada. For those who do write

00:55:12--> 00:55:16

is a good reward and something additional. So Eunice was 26.

00:55:18--> 00:55:34

Then he said, when the people deserving paradise have entered it and those deserving hell have entered it. A cry will call out all people of paradise. Allah has a promise for you, which he wishes to fulfill. They will ask what is it

00:55:35--> 00:55:46

has he not made our scale of good deeds heavy, made our faces shining put us in Paradise and extracted us from hell some of us from El

00:55:47--> 00:56:02

Valle will then be removed and they will gaze at him at the law, nothing which he has bestowed on them will be there to them then gazing at him and that is something additional Ziad.

00:56:04--> 00:56:12

As previously mentioned, verse eyes cannot catch him but he catches all eyes or sight cannot catch him vision cannot catch.

00:56:14--> 00:56:26

By itself, it seems to negate seeing a lot in both this life and the next. However, when combined with all the authentic evidences for believers seeing a line the next slide, scholars

00:56:27--> 00:56:37

reinterpreted the verse to mean that in the next life, it only negates the possibility of seeing a law in his totality.

00:56:39--> 00:56:48

The righteous will only be able to see a part of a law since their site will still be the site of finite beings that were created by Allah.

00:56:50--> 00:57:21

While Allah on the other hand, will always be the infinite, uncreated Lord, who cannot be encompassed by sight, knowledge or power. As for the disbelievers, they will not see a lie in the next life wouldn't be a greater deprivation and disappointment to all of them. Allah said Calla in the home and Robbie him Yama is in lama jubu. But on that day, they will be veiled from their Lord.

00:57:22--> 00:57:24

So toughie in verse 15.

00:57:27--> 00:58:18

Should have fear the fourth principle, to have fear where there is a warning in the name of the Divine Name on button the hidden also contains a hidden warning of evil consequences if we don't ensure that we preserve the right intentions in doing our deeds. alliedbarton knows our intentions regardless of what we show externally, in order to delude those around us. of environments outside and stress the importance of purifying our intentions, as rewards or punishments for deeds done is completely dependent on these reasons. We might do a good deed externally for a bad reason and be punished or we might do a bad deed for good reason and be rewarded. Ally's the ultimate judge Mr.

00:58:18--> 00:58:37

Deeds, and his judgment will be primarily based on our intentions for those deeds, as I met him no subtab coated promises are not saying in the mail I'm Alinea. The reward for deeds depends upon their intentions.

00:58:39--> 00:58:51

This principle is particularly important in the context of minor shear, a reality we spoke about earlier, because it led the first three groups of people thrown in hell

00:58:53--> 00:59:17

being from the Muslim martyrs, Muslim benefactors, and Muslim scholars, simply because all they did, all of them did their meritorious acts of worship, their meritorious deeds, good deeds, all for the praise of people, and not for the praise of Allah.

00:59:19--> 00:59:36

Almighty knows all that we do, every minute detail, every thought, every desire and every intention. So we should take account of ourselves. Before we do anything we should ask ourselves, am I doing this really for Allah, or for someone or something else?

00:59:38--> 00:59:56

We should also check while we're doing things in case our intentions are changing, because they're not fixed. Sometimes they're in a flux. Likewise, upon conclusion about doing our righteous deeds, we should double check to make sure our intentions have remained intact.

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

With regards to our hidden sins

01:00:04--> 01:00:10

moraira go to the bouncers element saying Allah has written for the children of Adam.

01:00:12--> 01:00:18

Allah has written for the children of Adam, their share of adultery.

01:00:21--> 01:00:21

How the

01:00:23--> 01:00:28

law is written for the children of Adam their share of adultery, which they inevitably commit.

01:00:31--> 01:00:39

We all fall into the adultery of the eyes is the gaze. The adults you have the tongue is the talk

01:00:40--> 01:00:47

and the soul wishes and desires, then the private parts either attest to it all or denied.

01:00:50--> 01:01:06

And even Satya said on one day the Messenger of Allah delivered a very moving speech to us, which made our eyes flow with tears and our hearts melt. We asked all messenger of Allah, this is a farewell speech.

01:01:07--> 01:01:10

What do you enjoy and upon us, he said,

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

but to come on comala by the name of ha can adhia Leia xiahou Anna, Bodhi Illa Holic

01:01:24--> 01:01:36

I'm leaving you on a path of brightness, whose night is like it's day. Everyone who deviates from it, after I'm gone, is doomed.

01:01:38--> 01:01:40

Islam is crystal clear.

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

However, based on the work concept that like a law being a via the outer, and a lot in the inner, everything has an outer shell and an inner kernel, protected by the outer shell.

01:01:59--> 01:02:00

Some Muslims,

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

who are not satisfied with what the Sharia

01:02:06--> 01:02:07

had to offer,

01:02:08--> 01:02:38

developed a parallel system which they named the Tata Sheree I being the outer rules. Today being the inner way. They adopted the ultimate goal of the Hindus, which was unity with the world soul Brahman, Allah along with the Christian, Greek based mystic union between man and God. The ultimate goal of this movement was defined as fana

01:02:39--> 01:03:30

the solution of the human ego, and we'll assume the meeting and unification of the human soul for the lost soul in this life. Subsequently, a series of preliminary stages and states, which had to be traversed were defined. They were called Mahamat stations and highlight states, and a system of spiritual exercises were designed for the initiate in order to bring about this mystic meeting. These exercises of Vicar often involve the head movements, with some and sometimes even dance getting up and dancing with seeing the Whirling Dervishes. All of these practices were attributed to problem Amazon sudden two chains of narration in order to validate them, but there does not exist a

01:03:30--> 01:03:37

single authentic report to support these claims. In the books have had the

01:03:39--> 01:03:52

multiplicity of systems however, involved evolved. An order similar to those of the Christian monks appeared named after their founders, like Audrey chisti, Naqshbandi t journey.

01:03:53--> 01:04:06

Along with that volumes of legends and fairy tales, were spun around the founder founders and the outstanding personalities of disorders. And justice Christian and Hindu monks

01:04:08--> 01:04:13

chose special isolated structures

01:04:14--> 01:04:15

we call monasteries

01:04:17--> 01:04:34

in which to house their communities. The Sufi orders developed similar housing schemes called zawiya zoas corners, that's the literal meaning, but it's my monasteries. In time a body of hermetic Creed's developed,

01:04:37--> 01:04:37

and

01:04:39--> 01:04:42

the union of God.

01:04:43--> 01:04:59

With man, the mystic union, belief became dominant. For example, most orders claim that a law could be seen when the status was soon arrived, and was achieved. Some Sufi adults claim that when the status was saw

01:05:00--> 01:05:10

That's a rival you have arrived at the law was attain the mundane obligations of Sharia like five times daily prayer, fasting etc are no longer obligatory. You don't have to do.

01:05:12--> 01:05:51

Something is thought that prayers to a lot to be sent through the prophet SAW Salem or through the so called sense. Furthermore, many of them began practicing toe off making circumambulation inside and animal sacrifices at the tombs and the shrines of the so called saints. Toe off can be observed even just today around the grave of Xena and say the battery in Egypt, around the tomb of Mohammed Othman Maddy in the Sudan, and around the database of countless saints and holy men in India and Pakistan.

01:05:52--> 01:06:23

shediac came to be scornfully looked at as the outer path designed for the ignorant masses. While the Tarita was the inner path of the elite few chosen by the the leaders of these Sufi orders. opinionated tafsir appeared in which the meanings of the Quranic verses were bent and twisted to support these heretical ideas of the Muslim of the mystic movement.

01:06:24--> 01:06:39

Greek philosophical thought was also blended with fabricated ideas to produce a body of inauthentic literature, which challenged the early Islamic classics and oftentimes even displace them amongst the ignorant masses.

01:06:40--> 01:06:52

Music was introduced in most circles, and even drugs like marijuana to be founded others as a means of heightening the pseudo spiritual experience which they all sought,

01:06:53--> 01:07:29

such as even the legacy such was the legacy of the latter generation of sofas, which had been built on the false premise that the union of the human soul with a law was attainable. They clearly deviated from the white plane on which the problems are solved and left us declared the early generation of pious individuals like Abba, Father and Gilani, and others to whom some of the Sufi orders were attributed, clearly understood the importance of distinguishing between the creator and the grated, the two could never be one, as one was divine,

01:07:30--> 01:07:35

and eternal, while the other was human, and finite.

01:07:37--> 01:08:15

Closing knowledge of a loss bothnia or nearness, and witness to his and compass meant of all worlds, his closeness to his servants, and his knowledge of their innermost thoughts and secrets, and their hidden intentions necessitates purification of the human soul. And rectification of secret sinful acts, and purification of the inner soul and cleaning of the heart, followed by filling it with faith and mindfulness of Allah.

01:08:16--> 01:08:24

With that, we close that session mentioning this name of Allah and Martin, in our blah,

01:08:26--> 01:08:32

blah, blah, yeah, but we know that you are the hidden Knower of all that is hidden.

01:08:33--> 01:09:12

Help us to purify our intentions, protect us from hypocrisy, and make both our inward and outward actions pleasing to you, as in reflecting on your revelations, and the signs that you have placed around us and conceal our sins. Yeah, mountain, protect us from exposing our sins and make us of those able to see you in paradise each and every day in the life to come. I mean, salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa E. About a catch.

01:09:15--> 01:09:23

With that, we now shift to our third sector

01:09:24--> 01:09:26

of our program

01:09:27--> 01:09:28

which is that of

01:09:30--> 01:09:32

questions and answers q&a.

01:09:34--> 01:09:40

We have a few questions and answers. We're gonna keep it short today in particular

01:09:45--> 01:09:48

first question from tofik.

01:09:49--> 01:09:59

Sarno please I want you to tell me if I could begin with Islamic Studies first or Arabic language I in your study in it

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

You

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

I would say begin with your Islamic Studies. Arabic is taught along with it.

01:10:08--> 01:10:09

Second question

01:10:11--> 01:10:24

from a visitant. What is the Greatest Name of Allah? by which he answers prayers? It is a law. We explained that in our second session,

01:10:25--> 01:10:26

why?

01:10:28--> 01:10:37

champion the dunya asks, What are the signs of evil eye line? How to find out if a person has been affected by it?

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

Well,

01:10:40--> 01:10:44

the effect of the evil eye is through the agency of the gym.

01:10:45--> 01:10:57

And there is not necessarily one effect that anybody has this you can say they have legalized, although there are people who claim that you say this is evil eye.

01:10:59--> 01:11:01

Reality the prophets of Salaam

01:11:02--> 01:11:13

just told us to use the if if somebody the circumstances indicate somebody came to visit, you all came to

01:11:15--> 01:11:37

visit, see your child, etc. and immediately after they left, you started to feel something or something with your child. Okay, so there's you suspect that this person is brought to them, Eli. So in such cases, you need to get water from them and bathe with it. That was the recommendation of the process

01:11:38--> 01:11:41

himself otherwise drinking

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

the water of truffles. You can go and look up truffles. And

01:11:50--> 01:11:51

it's like a desert

01:11:52--> 01:11:53

mushroom

01:11:55--> 01:11:57

which grows in the forests also.

01:11:59--> 01:12:01

They're very expensive in Europe.

01:12:02--> 01:12:03

But in the

01:12:04--> 01:12:10

third world, the developing world they're quite reasonably priced.

01:12:11--> 01:12:18

You can buy them also even Mark they have them stored in in jars.

01:12:19--> 01:12:21

You know, just the way you're off pickled

01:12:26--> 01:12:26

pickled

01:12:28--> 01:12:30

cucumber or other things.

01:12:31--> 01:12:33

You also they have the pickled

01:12:35--> 01:12:36

truffles

01:12:40--> 01:12:44

question from our instagramers

01:12:45--> 01:12:51

allowed a lot fall Alisha Coleman just a month and I will not I will in Sun Valley, Milan and

01:12:53--> 01:13:14

the question are the toys of children in the shape of people or animals etc are permissible or not permissible? They are permissible. We know from the example of Ayesha, who had a windhorst toy. And the prophet SAW Selim even asked her about it. She told him it was the

01:13:15--> 01:13:28

voice of prophets as to the man and the processor smiled. And he he did not forbear from having it. So we know that it's for children

01:13:29--> 01:13:31

using pictures, images,

01:13:35--> 01:13:38

dolls, etc, are permissible.

01:13:41--> 01:13:42

further question.

01:13:47--> 01:14:03

What is exactly meant by transgressing going beyond the limits in da, we ask Allah for extraordinary, extraordinary things like healing and the terminally ill and so on. Then what kind of do i is wrong?

01:14:06--> 01:14:09

Well, transgressing limits.

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

We can ask Allah for anything which he

01:14:18--> 01:14:21

and his messenger have told us is

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

for

01:14:24--> 01:14:26

us in this life,

01:14:27--> 01:14:28

asking him

01:14:29--> 01:14:44

to give us fruit from Jenna. That's going beyond the limits. We haven't even made it to Jen does not ensure that we're going to get there. So asking for that is not acceptable.

01:14:48--> 01:14:49

From

01:14:51--> 01:14:56

instagrammers Is it okay if I don't marry in my life because I want

01:14:57--> 01:14:59

I want to marry of my choice.

01:15:01--> 01:15:02

Have a man in

01:15:04--> 01:15:05

question.

01:15:07--> 01:15:32

problems as Alan said, all young people, whoever wants to are able to, to get married should get married. So it's strongly recommended that you get married. The idea of you not marrying in this life, so that you will get a husband from or a partner from the people of Paradise

01:15:36--> 01:15:38

is going to an extreme.

01:15:40--> 01:15:47

That's an example of going to an extreme in blah, blah for that.

01:15:48--> 01:15:55

Better imagine this life with that person is turns out to be somebody you don't want to be with in the next slide, then

01:15:56--> 01:15:59

you can choose and

01:16:00--> 01:16:03

the young men of Paradise,

01:16:04--> 01:16:09

who are not from this world, will be yours to have as you wish.

01:16:11--> 01:16:13

As Allah has clearly said,

01:16:15--> 01:16:24

welcome via matassa here, first of all, you have in it in Paradise, whatever your soul's desire, so that's what you desire. It's all yours.

01:16:27--> 01:16:33

Be Nish, Ronnie asked, what does it mean that he was created from the rib of Adam?

01:16:35--> 01:16:36

Well,

01:16:38--> 01:16:42

that's what it means. He was she was created from the rib of Adam.

01:16:44--> 01:16:46

Allow utilized

01:16:47--> 01:16:49

rib from Adam,

01:16:50--> 01:16:51

in her creation,

01:16:52--> 01:16:54

whether it was the DNA,

01:16:55--> 01:16:59

I was then multiplied and how it took place. We don't need to get into all that.

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

But

01:17:03--> 01:17:08

that's what a lot said. We take it on face value.

01:17:10--> 01:17:19

From the instagramers. Today, Hindu person dies, can we pray to Allah for his mercy and gentlemen, for him?

01:17:21--> 01:17:23

That's going beyond the limits.

01:17:24--> 01:17:29

Praying for a non Muslim who dies and idol worship, etc. that Allah put them in Jannah.

01:17:34--> 01:17:41

not permissible. Allah prevented problems as Allah for praying for his own mother.

01:17:42--> 01:17:44

He asked permission a lot didn't give him permission.

01:17:46--> 01:17:49

But it did give him permission to go to her grave.

01:17:51--> 01:17:54

didn't give me permission to pray for her.

01:17:55--> 01:18:01

Because she along with his father would be among the people

01:18:02--> 01:18:05

based on the statements of the problem itself.

01:18:09--> 01:18:10

sada

01:18:13--> 01:18:15

Oh, is it sadaqa man?

01:18:17--> 01:18:24

Can we recite Surah Fatiha behind the amount when the mom decides loudly? Better not to

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

the Quran is recited is allowed said

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

a STEMI rula wants you to listen to it and be quiet.

01:18:38--> 01:18:47

Go ahead. Is it hello to take loans by mobile apps as taxes are deducted separately

01:18:50--> 01:18:51

taking loans

01:18:53--> 01:18:55

by mobile apps

01:18:57--> 01:19:06

as taxes are deducted separately. Now what does that mean? Does it mean that if you take a loan

01:19:07--> 01:19:10

there is no interest no Riba?

01:19:12--> 01:19:34

If there is no worry about taking a loan through an app, then of course it's okay to do it. But as long as there is rebar, there is interest to be paid by you on the loan, then it's not permissible, whether it's straight from the bank or it's from an app or online any how any way.

01:19:42--> 01:19:50

Question is in the shop prayer after for fun, too soon. Can we pray one Raka Witter?

01:19:52--> 01:19:53

Yes, you could.

01:19:57--> 01:19:58

Though, it's recommended that you do

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

A couple of records to our for record

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

up

01:20:07--> 01:20:11

Sajid along with it connected with it

01:20:13--> 01:20:14

Baraka logical

01:20:16--> 01:20:20

for the question, why? Why is music calm?

01:20:21--> 01:20:27

That's a whole lecture in and of itself, but the main point that we can see

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

is that

01:20:30--> 01:20:31

music

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

occupies the heart.

01:20:37--> 01:20:47

And when the heart is occupied with music, then it means that space that could have been there for beneficial

01:20:50--> 01:20:51

then official

01:20:53--> 01:20:54

cron

01:20:55--> 01:21:00

lecture lectures etc, is being reused.

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

And we know that the music has a way of attaching itself. Because if somebody sings or plays the first few notes of a song you learned 20 years ago,

01:21:18--> 01:21:19

you forgot it.

01:21:20--> 01:21:28

The first time you hear those few notes from it like that, you remember back in your head, the whole thing is there.

01:21:29--> 01:21:30

That is the

01:21:31--> 01:21:37

insidious nature of music The Forbidden forms.

01:21:38--> 01:21:45

Now, Yeah, hello forms that have the voice that have the Duff meeting.

01:21:47--> 01:21:47

And,

01:21:49--> 01:21:49

you know,

01:21:51--> 01:21:52

whether it's

01:21:53--> 01:21:54

adult

01:21:55--> 01:21:59

males, I don't females for for

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

females,

01:22:04--> 01:22:06

females can listen to both males and females.

01:22:08--> 01:22:12

Whereas men were not supposed to listen to

01:22:13--> 01:22:17

adult females singing this process Allah had specifically

01:22:20--> 01:22:47

permitted that category, because of the nature of their voices, its power, its ability to captivate the heart, etc. So it's all related back to it. Numbers, people say, Well, you know, music, you know, it makes me feel so much better when I'm, you know, I'm stressed or whatever, I listen to music, and it just calms me down. And in all of this, you know, hey, listen, if music was really so good,

01:22:49--> 01:22:54

why did pay musicians kill themselves? commit suicide.

01:22:56--> 01:23:01

Every year, every other year, every five years, somebody who was at the peak

01:23:03--> 01:23:05

in music killed themselves.

01:23:07--> 01:23:14

And much of what is connected with the music of today is corruption. What are people singing about?

01:23:15--> 01:23:21

fornication, adultery. They're all very, very cool. So

01:23:24--> 01:23:25

take it from me

01:23:26--> 01:23:28

was a musician.

01:23:29--> 01:23:34

Yeah. What Dr. Blau Phillips position. Yes.

01:23:35--> 01:23:38

In my youth, my late teens.

01:23:39--> 01:23:40

I

01:23:41--> 01:23:44

was a musician. I played guitar and I sang.

01:23:47--> 01:23:48

And I had a group

01:23:50--> 01:23:55

played in Malaysia. I played back in nightclubs in Canada.

01:23:57--> 01:24:00

Toronto, Vancouver.

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

Yeah, I was there.

01:24:04--> 01:24:04

But

01:24:07--> 01:24:08

I remember seeing

01:24:10--> 01:24:16

point where I was very close. I think it's actually when I first accepted Islam. I was still playing.

01:24:18--> 01:24:42

But I could see the impact of the music. I could see it around. Everybody else was I on various substances. And I was the only one completely sober not taking any alcohol or drugs that suck. I was in a different world. Today, we're just moving and it's as if they were chained to something unseen.

01:24:43--> 01:24:47

That's my own personal experiences, but

01:24:48--> 01:25:00

it's enough to know that there is a halaal aspect of it which is allowed and permissible. And there's the Haram aspect, which is impermissible. We shouldn't

01:25:00--> 01:25:06

The distinction between the two and follow the guidance of the Messenger of Allah Subhan live a settler.

01:25:08--> 01:25:15

With that, inshallah they close our session baccala pecan Today was a bit long

01:25:17--> 01:25:22

so the hammock along with the hamburger shadow lala land Star firaga on

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

set I'm on a

01:25:27--> 01:25:28

lie
