I'd like to welcome you all
to our session, today's session, which is session 56
focusing on named 79.
And as we usually do, we'll welcome our

sha Allah with that we'll move on to our main program,
the commentary on the name
I will borrow.
Its meaning the source of witness the kind benefactor
and this is session 56
in terms of its location in the Quran,
it can only be found
in one place.
And that is in Surah tour. Verse 28. In Khulna in Kabul, Niger, who in who will baru regime, indeed we used to call upon Him alone before is truly the most kind and relevant and benevolent, the most murderous merciful.
Indeed, we used to call upon Him alone before is truly the most kind and benevolent, the Most Merciful.
In terms of its meaning, linguistically, borrow, comes from the transit route bah, bah, bah.
The verbal noun from it is borrowed.
And it has five main meanings, the first of which is to be devoted and gentle.
The second is to be just proper and honest. The third basic meaning is to have regard for someone sir
status and the fourth is to bestow bountiful gifts to be ample. And the fifth basic meaning is to do good and to be righteous.
This route appears some 32 times in the Quran and three derived forms. Examples of these forums can be found in albear, righteousness, different from Albar.
and Albar which means the land
as distinct from an bahara, meaning the sea, the land and the sea.
within Alif is the present participle according to the trial pattern.
It is not used in the Quran,
but it can be found in a narration in siouxland magic. However, the majority of scholars did not consider it among the established Divine Names. So we have a bar only to take the name to be abdl bar,
not abdl bar
relative to Allah and bar means the one who is kind and courteous to the servants caught into the sun and out of
the malevolent to all of his creatures, through granting them means of sustenance is kind to those who believe in him
and his kind to the charitable
as he will double their reward
is also kind to the sinners by forgiving them and overlooking their sins. And that is according to al-harbi.
Under on the other hand, means all acts of righteousness and good conduct. Now was even some on stated that when the prophet SAW Selim was asked about righteousness and sin, He replied, and baru has no follow righteousness is good character. Well, if my heart Kofi sodic character, a Talia lameness
and vice is what it is in your heart, that you dislike for people to know about.
Moving on to the application, which is of course, most important to us, in our study of the 99 Names of Allah,
our series, a smile law,
according to even bottles for principles for application, the first is to adopt where applicable,
Divine Name and bar, the benefactor
may be adopted and applied in three basic ways.
The first is to recognize a loss kind when beneficence in our own lives, and to be thankful for it.
The second is to become a kind benefactor, to our fellow Muslims and fellow human beings, wherever they may be.
The third is to utilize almaraz gifts in ways that are pleasing to Allah.
So the first
way of recognition
Allah Akbar, the kind benefactor is both incredibly kind and supremely gentle to his creatures
is totally sympathetic to their circumstances and unconditionally benevolent in fulfilling their needs, and in rectifying their worldly affairs, as well as the affairs of their religion.
regarding their worldly affairs, we can easily see a bar in the countless benefits of good health, strength, wealth, status, children and supporters, which he has blessed us with whether we are believers or not, as he informed us while I talk to him when Columbus and to move
into our new near I'm at a lie a lot of sewer
has granted you all that you are asked of him. If you try to count the Lord's blessings
You would never be able to enumerate them all.
Sorry, Brian, verse 34.
In fact, every philanthropic humanitarian would need is included in a loss benevolence, because they are all commissioned and facilitated by Allah, Allah, the kind.
On the other hand, regarding our religious affairs, whether in the form of successful righteous deeds and realizations of faith which Allah has guided us to, and made possible for us, earning us innumerable rewards in both this life and the next, it is he who rewards us and grants it all to us
in terms of
for sinful acts.
This is also from a laws benevolence, giving people a chance after another chance after a further chance, while being fully capable of unleashing on them, a swift early punishment as a loyal bar itself has said, forum book, Allah forouzan Rama now you are home diva cat Sabu Nigella nadab valla home Mauer, Aidan nije do bindoon e mo Illa.
Your Lord is that all forgiving, full of mercy. If you were to seize them immediately for what they commit, he would have certainly hasten their punishment. But instead, they have an appointed time, from which they will find no refuge through elica half. Verse 58.
demanded NumPy him
know did he was a student of Jamia he noted that the laws benevolence is evident from his hiding the sins of people while they commit them.
Though he sees them completely hide he so wished he could have exposed them in the society. So beware of him.
That covering is from the perfection of his benevolence among His Divine Names and bar the benevolent and his benevolence is from his complete lack of need of anything from his creatures, along with their complete need of everything from him.
Consequently, we should become so busy reflecting on his divine merciful gifts, and bearing witness to his benevolence, kindness and generosity, that we overlook our sin
and remain focused only on Allah most glorious. That is much more beneficial for us than becoming totally busy and engrossed in our sins, and realizing and becoming ashamed of their loneliness.
For being busy with Allah, and neglecting everything else besides Him is far greater, a goal worth striving for, and a more glorious purpose to seek.
However, that will not cause us to completely forget our sins. That becomes the case we should return to reflection on our sins in remembrance of our errors. For every time and circumstance, there is an appropriate form of worship suited for it.
Allah Alberto's kindness is also known from his acceptance of our excuses if we apologize to him.
This does not include using other as an excuse, but only acceptable excuses like forgetfulness,
oversleeping forth circumstances etc. Making excuses requires us to be busy with the laws. Remember, it's an expressions of gratitude and other types of love, which we have not felt before.
For the love of one who thanks us for our kindness, and furthermore rewards us for it.
Then he forgives us for our offensive behavior and doesn't always account for it. It doesn't hold us to
count for it is many more times stronger than our love for just gratefulness and reward by themselves. Reality is a witness of this.
Well, the worship of repentance after a sin in one case, while this is an is another case,
the worship of repentance, the act of repentance is a form of worship.
Doing that form of worship, after committing a sin is one particular case.
While what we're talking about here, is apologizing
which is another case
recognizing a law bias, favor in forgiving us, as it is an act of kindness beyond what is due.
For if he held us to account for what we have done, it would be just an praiseworthy. So a lot of forgiveness is a favor and not our right.
This obligates us to be grateful and to love Allah, turning back to him, and happiness and delight with him. And being aware of his name Allah far, the Forgiving realization of this attribute and worshiping based on its implication,
that is more complete in worship, love and understanding.
Adopting benevolence, taking it on ourselves a lot better is benevolent.
And he loves benevolence. And
in fact, he has instructed us to be righteous, as he loves those who adopt the Neverland righteousness as their character.
However, Allah has clarified that righteousness there is more than just doing ritual acts instructed by God,
in fact, begins with real sincere faith and ends with the regular remembrance of Allah.
That wider understanding can be found in the most comprehensive Quranic verse, which gathers all the major acts of righteousness, our most, or many, Allah said, lesson bureaux and to undo How come Cumberland mash the table mother, righteousness is not just turning your faces towards the east, or the West, like in albero. Rather, righteousness is represented by men. Amina biLlahi polyoma, aka, well Mullah equity, well kitabi wannabe those who believe in Allah, the last day the angels, the books and the prophets.
All of these are spiritual acts of faith, with moral conscious consequences. We should know what those consequences are. Allah goes on to say what I tell my hubby, though in corbelli uttama will Misaki oneness Sabine was silent warfare radar top
those who give charity out of their cherished wealth
to relatives or friends the poor needy travelers beggars and for freeing captives
and this group
all benevolent physical acts. Then a law goes on to say well karma Salah will add to zecca we'll move on to big him either I do wasabi Rena, Phil back, sir, what the raw were handled baths, those who established prayer
paisa that is the obligatory charity and keep their pledges and who are patient in times of suffering adversity, and in the heat of battle. All of these are physical acts of spiritual excellence. Hola, ekeler Dena Sadako, but we like a human moutoku It is they who are truthful in faith, and it is they who are mindful of Allah. So Allah Baqarah verse 177.
Based on this inclusive divine understanding of bitter righteousness, the prophet SAW Selim made
The exemplary outstanding moral characteristics are part of mirror.
rasa Salim was quoted by Nawaz, even some and as summing up righteousness in terms of moral character saying albero personal conduct. Well if mo Maha cofece Nasik. What correct is Talia Ali in us?
righteousness is good character. And sin is what gnaws at your conscience, that you would dislike for people to know about.
Their righteousness, which has as its foundations, benevolence, is a product of good moral character.
Therefore, the goal is to build a good moral character, and from it will flow righteous acts. Consequently, the basics of Islam should be learned following this model. The Pillars of Islam and the man should be understood from a moral character reference point, especially considering that the promises and I'm summed up the whole message of Islam as a moral character message saying in the Bible, it's to me Mama karma flopped, I was only sent to perfect for you, the most noble of moral character traits.
So the essence of the Islamic message is found in its promotion through the Sharia, of good moral behavior at all levels of human society, and in all spheres of human interaction. However, cultural and ritualized Islam tend to cloud the issues and block the avenues of real understanding and moral growth in the Pillars of Islam and Eman by focusing on rote memorization, and regurgitation, for example, a brief glance at the Pillars of Islam and the man will show us the five pillars of Islam, for example, in the Shahada time, our two declarations of faith,
the moral characteristics present in it is openness and transparency, saying what is in sight?
Being honest, expressing it honestly, and sharing what one has. This is what's happening in the Shabbat time.
Our five times daily prayers, they have
God consciousness fearing God, mindfulness of God,
acting Good, that's what we're doing in the prayer, whatever we say is
good, or whatever we do. All good acts.
So these are characteristics, speaking good. You know, we know that problems as Solomon said, If you believe in Allah the last day failure could not speak good, or just be quiet. zeca
what's coming from that generosity, and compassion for those around us? These are wild characters, which we all should have fasting. So
what does this create in us in terms of moral character?
self control, moderation, and also compassion.
having compassion for those who are starving, they're fasting not because they chose to fast but because they had nothing to eat.
And then Hajj
What does that build? It builds patience.
It builds a Universalist
character, one who is not caught up in tribalism.
You know, families,
so called races, etc. That's irrelevant. Islam is for human guide, and the Djinn. And we're all human beings.
the six pillars of faith
involve belief in Allah. What is that? God consciousness, mindfulness of Allah. What does it produce in terms of character?
because one is focused on
in terms of
that declaration of faith, that belief in Allah,
it gives us an awareness of this world, where we are, what's required of us, etc. what God has prescribed for us. So that helps us to know where we're headed. So it gives us a sense of stability. Belief in the angels and the jinn
teaches us to be deliberate in our actions. They're being recorded. So we have to think twice before we act, and being cautious because of course, there are evil forces around us from the world of the gentleman. And it's from human beings too. So we should be cautious in taking decisions not be hasty. The prophet SAW Selim warned just about being east.
And believe in the books, what does that bring it brings a character which is a grateful character, because the message
carried by the progress SLM was sufficient. But not only did Allah have a messenger carry the message, he also brought books of revelation prayer guide, that's from Allah is generosity. So we should be good.
Belief in the messengers should cause us to be questioning, not just blindly accepting anything and everything.
Because the messengers have now laid down a path for us, what is being said in the world around us has to be weighed based on that guidance.
Also, belief in the messengers teaches us to be obedient
to those in authority over us.
And also to be grateful, because again, a lot they need to send messages.
He said the message, he sent the book enough. But no, he said, messengers to demonstrate for us how to live in accordance with that book and the message, then believe in the last day, should create a calculating personality one who
thinks in the long term, not just now. But what am I going to meet on the day of judgment
based on these actions, these decisions, etc. So,
think twice. At the same time, it gives us confidence that justice will prevail, even though we don't see it now. But we have that confidence that it's gonna happen.
When the time is right, it will happen.
And then believe in the destiny that teaches us patience.
Because if it's all destined by lie, it's gonna happen. Whether we like it or not, we cannot stop.
We cannot stop a loss of data is destiny from happening, also to be content, which is what Allah decided for us. So we should have a contented character.
with the patience and contentment comes what stability we're not flipping and flopping from one extreme to another bipolar.
So these are the things that should be stressed when we're teaching the five pillars, not just memorizing those five pillars of Islam, six pillars of the mind. So our children know to rattle them off, all the way to the graduate from high school, and then they leave it behind them and they carry on, but they didn't connect.
They didn't connect it up with their lives. And that's what we need to do.
No one will obtain a loss of benevolence in the Hereafter, except by following what leads to his definition of righteousness, and generates His divine pleasure.
That is, Islam. And he,
no doubt will involve the sacrifice of some of our deep rooted emotional, psychological and physical desires.
Allah openly addressed this reality in no uncertain terms. Saying, Lenten aloe vera had to triple minmatar hibou. You will never achieve righteousness until you donate, give up, spend some of what you cherish my home in the shade, for in the lobby.
And wherever you spend whenever the league is fully known
To Allah. So Allah Brian verse 92,
the 10th century scholar Muslim
tafsir Quranic commentary imaam imagery and tabari basically wrote the first tafsir are the most
reliable or relied upon tafsir.
He died in the 10th century. See,
the Common Era. He recorded in his stuffs here that this verse meant all believers, you will not attain bear losses, the law said, that is
what he meant by bear benevolence from Allah, which you seek by obeying Him,
worshiping Him and wishing him to favor you, by putting you in his paradise and deflecting his punishment from him. So, all believers you are not attainder, except by spending charitably from the wealth that you love.
Consequently, he goes on to say, Imam even jarier.
Many of the leading scholars of tafsir said that in this verse and betterment paradise, because the Lord's benevolence to his worshipers in the next life, and is honoring them, would be fully expressed by putting them in his paradise.
The meaning of this verse includes the prophetic pronouncement narrated by Abdullah bin mustard regarding the precursor of their
of righteousness, which is none other than honesty and truth.
Barbicide Sallam was quoted by Elon Musk earlier that saying I lay come visit look for in a see the PA yeah the lol better
be truthful for truth leads to righteousness. We're in an era yeah the lol Jenna and righteousness needs to paradise.
Well Am I is on Rogen. Yes, know who we are to have since had You Tuber fine de la he's in Sydney but
the man who continues to speak the truth and strives to only tell the truth will eventually be recorded as extremely truthful with Allah, Sydney, like aboubaker acidic is given that level because of his
complete belief in Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, whatever he said,
the Quranic affirmation of the promises and then statement we're in an era yeah de la Jana. Indeed righteousness leads to paradise. In the Quran. Allah said in the Abra Luffy nine.
Indeed the righteous will be in bliss to an end Fatah. Verse 13.
However, Lord is specifically referring to the Day of Judgment,
the righteous will be in bliss. It actually includes all three life phases, this life, the grave, the barossa, and the next life. So those who have adopted the attribute of benevolence from Albar will be living in bliss in this worldly life, as well as during the state of the grave, and in everlasting paradise. This is what imaam me meant when he was quoted by him now famous saying, enough in dunya Jana,
verily, there is paradise in this world. Man lamea de hula lameer the whole Jonathan
whoever does not enter it now will never enter the paradise of the hereafter survival.
what is this calling us to
and righteousness, it's calling us to purity of that.
which delight and which pleasure in this life is sweeter than righteousness, the Netherlands, of the heart,
soundness of the soul,
knowing one's Lord loving him and doing deeds in agreement with all of that.
Yo my lion found Milan when I balloon, lm and Atala, they are all been sunny
on a day when neither wealth nor children will be of any benefit, only those who come before Allah, with a pure heart will be saved Surah ashara verses 88 and 89.
Is there any other reality worth living besides the life of a sound and pure heart?
Allah praise his close friend, Prophet Ibrahim for having a sound.
So what is the sound art? The sound heart is one which is saved from shark save from rancor. spitefulness jealousy stinginess, hatefulness and pride, as well as the love of this world, and the desire for leadership.
One that is such one that has such a sound heart is in the paradise of this world, as well as he will be or she will be in the paradise of the barossa when they die,
and ultimately be in the paradise of Allah on the promise day.
The power of
the sound the heart,
we can find it related in a narration
Anna Sidney Malik
in order to give
a practical lesson regarding the value of the sound or the purified heart, Anna Sidney Malik mentioned that, on one occasion
when they were sitting with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in the mosque
as he taught them.
He stopped the lesson and said, a man from the people of Paradise will enter the mask
and appear before you now.
They waited until a man from the answer appeared and his beard was dripping water from his ablution
and holding his sandals in his left hand.
He prayed to yourself prayer so now and then join the promised land circle.
This is not the man for the promises and I'm told to go back and pray because he didn't pray now. He prayed properly.
The next day, the promise is alum, again said something similar to what he had said the previous day.
And again, the same man appeared in the same state.
On the third day, the process lm again said something similar. And again the same man appeared in the same state.
When the processor stood up to leave the mask of the live in America last followed the man
followed the man at the end and said would be among the people of paradise.
So I'm delighted to nominate him the lads followed him as he was leaving the month.
And he informed me stopped him and informed him that he had gotten into an argument with his father that sworn an oath by a law that he would not enter his father's house for the next three days and nights
of the law that asked him if he could spend the next three days and nights with him and the man welcomed him of the law.
The last had been nominated in the last village that he spent the next three nights with the man but found he did not get up for the midnight prayers dodges, even once in those three nights, or we didn't notice that if the man woke up during the night and change his position his bed. you'd remember a lot out loud and he would make tech beer until he got up for 5g
also noticed that he never heard the man speak anything that
when the three nights had passed up, the Lord began to despise man because his
Looking to see something special.
So he confessed to him. There was no argument and no strange relation between my father and myself.
but on three occasions I heard the brothers outside and say that one of the people or fathers would appear before us. And each time it was you. I wanted to spend the nights with you to see what action you were doing, so that I could emulate you. But I didn't see you doing much. What is it that you're not you're doing,
too to get you to that level.
Which if I was Arsalan spoke about?
The man replied, nothing more than what you saw. However, I bear no malice towards any Muslim, nor do I feel any envy towards anyone, for the good that allies granted them.
The love and exclaim that's what has brought you to your special station
of being among the people of Paradise, who are designated by the process and while they were still alive.
That is what we are incapable of achieving. This is the sound.
Such is the amazing the highest status of the sound heart, pure from every fault which distances it from Allah. Same from every doubt which contradicts the last message.
Every desire which challenges a lot of commands,
every wish, which competes with what Allah wants from us, and every distraction which disconnects us from Allah.
The second way of applying the Divine Name
was to become a kind benefactor ourselves.
How can we strive to become kind benefactors? This Divine Name may be applied by adopting the benevolent characteristic of being a regular gift giver, and a benefactor.
Giving unconditional and unexpected gifts to those around us, naturally produces love and affection
and strengthens the bonds of friendship between people.
It is also a natural winner of hearts, because everyone loves to receive gifts. However,
it is the giving that often presents a challenge, as stinginess, is also pilot by nature. I will go through the process elements saying to hide out Habu
gifts among yourselves and build mutual love amongst yourselves.
From early childhood, children have to be taught to share their toys.
They have to be forced to overcome their natural desire to possess things exclusively for themselves,
That natural desire has a positive place in maintaining the family structure which is the foundation of the society. So it's not an evil.
Without the husband looking at his wife, as exclusively his
and likewise his children, the family would not exist.
However, the absolute right to use one's wealth as he or she wishes. if left unchecked, and unfettered. It can easily be very destructive and exploitive. As seen in the capitalist countries today,
unthinkable acts like someone dying and leaving all of his or her wealth to their dog or pet Canary. While denying the actual children any share of their wealth is real.
On June 10 2011,
the richest lap dog in the world a little white Maltese named trouble died at the age of 12. In our final days in luxury, every need tended to around the clock in Sarasota,
Oh old, her cognitive lifestyle to her former owner.
New York hotel era's Leona
Helmsley who died in 2007 and turn her back on relatives to be queen, the bulk of her estate. That is $12 million to her dog.
encouraging young children to share is only the beginning.
That's what we do to try to overcome their stinginess
as they desire not to share and not to give others from what we have remained strong throughout life.
Consequently, they surely are revealed by Allah,
Who is Albar, the benevolent made sharing obligatory in the form of Zika and highly recommended in the form of sadaqa and Hiba gift giving.
As a result, Muslims are known internationally as the most charitable nation in the world.
were quoted by Solomon saying after the sadaqa just don't look at what the demand told.
The best charity is that given with great difficulty, by one who is desperate,
and you should begin giving charity with your own dependence,
the act of giving charitably is not limited only to wealth, it should permeate every level of society.
This principle is amply demonstrated in the case of a woman with two children who came to Ayesha wife of the prophet SAW Selim and asked her for some sanaka. And I shall gave her three days because that's all she asked.
The woman gave a date to each of her children.
And when she went to eat the third date, her children had already finished the first two dates, and we're hungry looking at the third.
So she split the data in half and gave each child
I was amazed. And she loved the prophet SAW Selim about what happened and the prophets I send them said in the law, or the algebra Allah, beyond gender.
Law, indeed has made paradise obligatory for her because of it.
So our charitable act elevated her to be among the select few who are promised by the private sauce on paradise in this life.
This is the high value of charitable acts when one is desperate, or destitute.
The third way of applying the Divine Name using allows gifts
as he prefers
this name, I'll borrow. The benevolent gift giver can also be adopted by utilizing allows gifts in a way pleasing to Him and in the service of his righteous causes.
In this life, no one likes that their gifts be cheapened by misuse.
How much more in the case of Allah. If Allah gives us a gift, we shouldn't use it for what he dislikes. If we do that the gift will become a test and they fitna a trial for which we will be held accountable.
Consequently, the navel bar stands is a reminder for us to be thankful to Allah for his countless blessings in our lives that utilize them properly.
according to Islamic guidelines.
The second principle,
or women Nepal was to confirm were unique and inapplicable.
The divine attributes derived from the Divine Name of
the benevolent the kind, like all the other Divine Names are exclusively the right of Allah.
Only Allah alone shows kindness and generosity to all the creatures in this world unconditionally.
Any human being
human beings of this world or beings from the among the jinn, who claim that there are others among humans and the jinn, who can generously provide for all creation in a similar way. I've openly committed ship in this Divine Name, and all the Divine Names which contain similar meanings like aloha
My Nan preserved al Karim. It's
an 18th century Moroccan Sufi chef named at the Bauhaus
died in the 18th century 1719, to be exact, was quoted by one of his followers as saying I saw, I think, a really rich a station wherein he witnessed all intelligent and unintelligent creative beings,
wild animals, insects and the heavens and it stars, the earth, the globe of the entire world, gained its sustenance from him.
He heard all of the sounds and conversations in a single instance. And he gave each what they needed, and what was best suited for them, without being distracted by one from another. So the hammer,
the 13th century, see it gyptian Sufi saints at the suti who died in 1296,
was reported to have claimed, I have in my hand the doors of hell, and I closed them
and in my other hand, is genital Ferdowsi, the highest level of junk, and I've opened it
and I will house whoever visits me in genital photographs. So to have
such a claim gives the ultimate act of benevolence in the life to come entrance to paradise, to a human being designated as a saint or Wali.
Such a statement is a verbal act of ship in a law sname and Bara
and the other names which carry similar meanings, along with their attributes
have made a T journey. He said, He is the founder of the T jania. Sufi order.
Regarding himself he said, my soul and the soul of the Prophet
sallallahu ala said, provide help.
That is a the assistance and support to the messengers and prophets of Allah.
My soul assists the customs of the people at the top of the pyramid of saints and their eyes RFP from eternity to forever.
In London, I was in a Navy Roger.
The third principle of Ibn bathala was to have hope, where there is promise
a lot of butter is been the Netherlands to his friends and truthful regarding the rewards that he promised them.
And he gave the example of that into an offer 34 when I die as horrible gender as harben now
and by the way, jedna ma Deena rabona. Papa
My wife, Ramu haka. Paulo,
the residents of Paradise will call out to the residents of the fire. We have certainly found our Lord's promise to be true of you too, for found your Lord's promise to also be true, they will reply, we have
the righteous will say
to Allah was fulfilled as promised.
Well, Camila hamdulillah hymnody sadaqa now

the righteous will say Praise be to Allah was fulfilled its promise to us and made us inherit the land so that we may settle in paradise wherever we please. Oh, accident is the reward of those who work righteousness. So as a martyr verse 74.
Consequently, regardless of how hopeless the situation the oma may look to us now,
Muslims are promised by a law that they will inherit the rule of the earth
as others before them and after them up
When we compare the situation of Muslims today was that of the early 1900s, the early 20th century
100 years ago,
we are in a much better situation than back then.
problem is we only tend to look at now, what's happening now.
Back then, virtually all of our countries were colonized and under colonial rule,
the liberation struggles to free ourselves politically and economically, from the European nations, which had enslaved us was just beginning to formulate itself as thoughts in our forefathers minds. Yes, we're still under different layers of neocolonialism. Within the last 100 years, we've come a long way from where we work.
It is true that Muslims and Islam have replaced communism and socialism in the first half of the 20th century as the axis of evil from the western world's perspective,
with even China focused on the Muslim minority wiggers within their borders.
However, the Islamic consciousness and political will of the oma has changed drastically over the centuries. And why scholar wants told me
you can judge the level of Islam or people by the level of job of their women.
50 years ago, there was little a job around the most important 100 years ago, women marched in the streets of Cairo and burned day jobs.
Today the job is evident even in western countries in which Muslims have suffered.
Women in Turkey were prohibited from wearing scarves in any government institution, whether educational or political, since the overthrow of the Ottoman Caliphate, the rise of secularism with Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
he died in 1938. Just before World War Two.
He became the first President of the Republic of Turkey in 1923.
He was a secondary,
he promoted secularism
throughout across the country, military behind him, he secularized everything. But he also did bring turkey into
production, development progress, according to Western standards.
That's why it's not surprising to find that the person who invented the first vaccine
for COVID was the Muslim Turk.
guess most of us don't even know that. Pfizer is the company which produced
vaccine for distribution, but they didn't invent
I took German Turk. We did it.
So, women in Turkey were prohibited for wearing scarves in any government institution.
Regardless of what that government institutions, the simplest
in the post office, not
so much so that when Merv
cabac, she, a member of parliament in 1999.
challenge this law by showing up in the assembly, wearing a scarf to take her parliamentary oath. She was forcibly removed and her Turkish citizenship was subsequently stripped from her remote.
However, today, the wife and daughter have earned again president of Turkey, where he jobs whenever they're seen in with him in public, and his daughter's regularly seen with him because she is
