This is session 57 a
the acceptor of repentance name number 80
and this is part one
the name as the material was long we will have part one and two.
And the Quranic location in terms of this name at the web
is that the name is mentioned in some 11 places in the Quran itself.
Allah May Allah mu n Allah or a ballute Toba n anybody.
Boy yeah hello support for an Allah. poet wabo Rahim
Know that Allah alone accepts the repentance of his servants and receives their charity and that Allah alone is the acceptor of repentance, the Most Merciful
that Surah tober verse 104
in terms of the meaning linguistically at the word comes from the trilateral root
ca Wow. And by that is ca wow and
Tao button is the verbal now,
it has three main meanings. The first of which is to repent
or to become enlightened,
that is respectful. The second meaning is to abandon or leave or to renounce.
The third meaning is to forgive or pardon.
Lab is the present participle
verb tie by a tubu.
And it is in the file intensive form pattern
from far end,
which would have been part time sorry, time.
So, instead of ta M,
which is one who repents, we have tau web
frequency of repentance or frequency of acceptance of repentance.
relative to a lot the web
is explained by Allah zali in his book almak Fudd asna
as meaning the one who repeatedly facilitates the means of repentance for his servants, time and time again, by showing them his science and by catching their attention through scary experiences and warnings, until they become aware of the hideous nature of their sins, and feel overwhelming fear which drives them to repent until a lot of favours
returned to them and his acceptance of their repentance.
In Surah assura verse 25. Well who led up to Bella Tabata and a body? Well, yeah, fu n is say at Alamo mata falloon.
And it is he Allah who accepts repentance from his servants and pardon his misdeeds, and he knows what you do.
We should note that the Divine Name at awam
used for human beings without the definite article, the web.
most important at the web is found out of the 11 times most often, combined with the Divine Name, Rahim as install Al Baqarah, verse 160.
In the lead in a taboo, but as lateral, we're by no formula to Galle him for an October Rahim except for those who repent and correct themselves and make evident what they have concealed. Those I will accept their repentance, and I am the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.
That's what Baqarah verse 160.
This is to emphasize to us, that when our Lord turns forgivingly to his servants, it's through his special and exceptional mercy.
for none of us deserves his great blessings. And if we
claim that we actually deserve it. We are very wrong, as alar rewarded us for latos at CU and fusa
or Alamo, we managed taco.
So do not sanctify yourself. Allah knows best.
Those who truly fear him.
So imagine verse 32.
The servant doesn't deserve that a lot turns to him, after he has disobeyed him and transwest allows bounds.
Instead, it is a law who turns to us out of his intense Mercy is Rama. Without a lot constantly bestowing upon us his special mercy, we would all be lost
linguish linguistically at the web, is in the fall pattern, which in Arabic denotes frequent repetition
is some one who forgives you and keeps forgiving you, someone to whom you can return at any time.
Reflecting on the meaning of a terroir will help us to never feel too guilty to turn back to Allah. Because no matter how bad our actions become, Allah forgives all
surah Zoomer Allah says there earlier a body Allah Dena Astra for Allah I'm forcing him
not to mean rock Matilda in the lie of a pharaoh zuba Jamia in the who in the food regime? Say all my servants, you have transgressed against yourselves by sinning do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins Indeed, it is he who is the Forgiving the merciful. Verse 35 in Surah azumarill
remembering a toe also helps us to develop a forgiving nature because a lot of favorites forgiveness over revenge. He said what is that we'll say a tin say a tune, Miss loja woman alpha.
For Angela who Allah Allah. In the who lie you have both Solomon
and the retribution for an evil act is an evil one like it.
But whoever partners and makes reconciliation his reward is due from Allah.
Indeed, he does not like wrongdoers. So are Shura, verse 40.
If someone harms you,
it is completely halaal for you to get your exact revenge. According to the law of retribution.
get you in the eye and blinded you. You have the right to blind them.
But it is infinitely more preferable to forgive.
Imagine if Allah dealt with us as we deal with others. Where would we be?
If he can forgive all of our wrongdoings? Why can't we forgive others?
Moving on to the application.
application of this Divine Name, according to even Bob Paul's four principles, the first being to adopt where applicable. The Divine, a motto of the partner
may be adopted and applied in two basic ways. The first is to act to understand the importance of repentance and to be repentant ourselves. And the second is to accept repentance of others, as a law is acceptance of our repentance.
The first way, being repentant ourselves
begins from the premise that repentance is worshipped
by the mercy and grace of Allah.
The act of repentance is considered one of the major acts of worship
to which human beings and the jinn may earn their own salvation. They don't have to depend on somebody else
Forgive us to
intercede on our behalf.
Salvation is in our own grasp.
Thus, in the final book of Revelation, the Quran, Allah directly commands all of the believers to repent, saying, what to boo Eloy jamea au Hellmuth, Minoan la Lacan to flay, prune
all believers, turn in repentance all of you to Allah, that you might succeed. That surah Noor, verse 31.
The last messenger of a law not only complied with this command himself, but he also urged his followers to turn to Allah in repentance regularly.
I've never been DSR almost any reported that on one occasion the prophet SAW Selim said yeah evenness to boo ala lie for any a to goofily Omen
la he may attend Mara
Yeah, you are nuts to boo ilahi for any a to woofie philleo mi LA, Mia Tamara, people turn to Allah in repentance and seek His forgiveness. For surely I make repentance 100 times every day
by sincerely obeying God's command to turn to Him in repentance. The penitent sinner embarks on an act of worship, which is so great that it can totally absolve him or her of their sins
will obey the
road the Allahu anhu
reported that loss messenger said at pty boomin, SMB, command la gambella
Thai boomin and zombie command lathom Bella one who repents from sin is like one without sin.
The avenue of repentance has been left open for human beings and the jinn in spite of their sinless original state, because it is part of their nature to commit errors. These mistakes are a natural consequence of their God given free will,
and the finite attributes with which they were in doubt.
Thus, the prophet SAW solemn, was quoted by his personal sermon and a Sidney Malick to have said khulumani Adam hopper.
Well, Hayden hopper in adamawa Boone. All of Adams descendants constantly are common errors.
But the best of those who constantly are, are those who constantly repeated
a lot deliberately created humans and the jinn with an inclination to do raw.
Because pardoning those who turn repentant to him, is a channel through which allows divine attributes of mercy and forgiveness are made manifest.
Prophet Muhammad's wa sallam
informed his followers of this important fact of life. In one of his statements quoted by both Abu al Ansari and Abu huraira
he was quoted to have said
Wallasey, Neff cbsd,
no alum to Cebu, nada, la will become well at the Tao Minh using the buena
festa Pharaoh and Allah for your funeral home.
If you did not commit since Allah would sweep you out of existence and replace you by another people who will commit sins, ask a loss forgiveness, and he would forgive that
process of falling into error. Realizing the mistakes and seeking God's forgiveness is also a channel for the spiritual growth.
humankind and the jinn guide
develops our love for the Almighty and increases our respect and consciousness of Allah. When returned to him in humility and devotion.
Consequently, the first human and the first prophet of God Adam, along with his wife, Eve, Hauer, in Arabic, set the example for all humankind regarding this human failing.
It also clarified its solution and highlighted the magnanimity of a loss grace.
magnanimity of a loss grace. The story of Adam's fall into sin is mentioned in many places in the crowd, with varying degrees of detail in order to emphasize the different lessons to be learned from it.
Allies pleased when a sinner turns to him in repentance, because he created human beings with a natural tendency to Earth
in order that he would repent and be forgiven from Allah, his infinite mercy.
Hence, when humans turn to God and repentance, they are fulfilling his wish, as well as fulfilling a part of the reason for their creation.
when it becomes an act of righteousness
is greatly pleasing to Allah.
In the Quran, Allah explicitly says in the law, you have Butoh Amina your humble Matata hearing.
Surely Allah loves those who constantly turn to Him in repentance, and those who keep themselves pure, regularly. So Al Baqarah verse two to two
Consequently, the prophet SAW Selim taught his followers to pray for this beloved state after every ablution whatever no hotdog quoted him as saying

Whoever among you performs will do that solutions carefully. And then says I testify that there is no true God except the law alone has no partners. And that Mohamed Salah Salim is his slave and messenger.
Allah make me among those who regularly repent and regularly purify themselves.
The aid gates of Paradise will be open for him or he or she may enter through whichever of the gates he or she desires to enter from.
The province on some also emphasize the loss happiness with those who are repentant on several locations. Among them is one reported by analyst named Malik and by Abu huraira, in which they quoted the browser's element saying Allahu a shed do Farhat without the ahi comb.
Men I had a comb with all Lottie, he is wotja
Allah is more delighted with the repentance of his servants. Then one who suddenly finds his camel laden with supplies after losing it in a barren desert.
Not only is repentance desirable, and everyone urged to turn to the creator on his or her own behalf.
there are also no barriers
between the repentant sinner and God whatsoever.
Whoever turns to a lion
to repentance will be find
the door of salvation through repentance is wide open for all who seek to enter.
Now regarding the conditions for the acceptance of repentance,
as with all forms of worship, and we said that repentance is an act of worship, a major act of worship, there are conditions which make it valid, and conditions which make it invalid, if not fulfilled.
The first of seven conditions that we'll be looking at, for the acceptance of repentance is remembrance of Allah.
That's number one.
There is in all forms of worship, training for the soul, in overcoming its lower desires and abstaining from evil.
But the greater goal
which ensures all of that and much more, is the remembrance of Allah.
Allah salata, tanha and in fascia he will Moncure
while at the Kuru law he Akbar.
Indeed, regular prayer prevents shameful speech
and unjust deeds. But the remembrance of Allah is greater Srilanka boot, verse 45.
Thus the ultimate goal of worship is the remembrance of Allah because it is in the mindfulness of God. taqwa that all righteousness lies
as the law said,
in many and Allahu La Ilaha Illa Anna, for good knee. Welcome is Sala decree. Verily, I'm a law, there is no god besides me. So worship Me and establish regular prayer for my remembrance. So a baja verse 14.
Furthermore, the greatest benefit that human beings may gain in this life may only be obtained from the remembrance of Allah.
The great benefit is none other than true peace of mind, tranquility of soul, and contentment of the heart.
Allah be liquid Allah He taught my inner guru. Without doubt, it is only in the remembrance of Allah that hearts, find rest,
aligned turn commands and believers to remember him as much as possible within a normal life cycle. Without going to extremes. This is something very basic,
but which we constantly fall short of. Yeah, you alladhina amanu both guru Lama the Quran kathira. all believers remember Allah often to Allah Azhar, verse 41,
some of taking this divine instruction to mean isolating oneself in a mosque or a monastery, remembering a law by repeating his name 1000s and 1000s of times daily. This was not the intent of the law, state. Law wishes us and wishes for us is
He meant that we live in normal life infused with the remembrance of Allah. That is why the prophet SAW Salah has taught us so many do us, remembering Allah for every natural act that we do in our daily lives, from waking up in the morning, to going to sleep at night, and even if we wake up in the middle of the night.
real repentance should be closely linked
with the remembrance of Allah.
In fact, it should begin from the point at which one becomes conscious of a law.
Among the qualities by which Allah describes those whose repentance is accepted
is that of those who haven't done something shameful, or having wrong their own souls, remember Allah
Well, levena is far too far. fisherton Osamu and foster home Zachary will law
and immediately asked for
In this for this in
Stanford who didn't obey Him.
So Allium Ron, was 135 sincerity.
This is about sincerity.
So added to this first condition of acceptance of repentance is the related condition of sincerity, which requires all acts of worship.
To have as its base sincerity for it to be valid. Repentance must be done strictly for the pleasure of Allah alone.
For only he can pardon the sins of human beings.
Well, my only rule in law only our Buddha law in the Sinhala Deen, they were only commanded to worship a law making the religion sincere for him alone. So in bayona, verse five,
that is, the motivating force behind to repentance should be the love of Allah, and I wish to glorify an exalted.
This love should be accompanied by hope for the rewards which Allah has promised, and fear of the punishments in store for those who transgresses laws.
It should not be driven by a desire to curry the favor of others are to earn admiration and praise of people.
Nor should it be to deceive others in order to achieve worldly goals, like a job or a wife. Gender quoted the province or sentiment saying, men some Ma, some law will be mejorar, ie
your ill will be whoever informs others about his or her good deeds, to win their praise, or does them in public for a claim will be exposed by Allah.
He will let people hear of his good deeds intentionally to win their praise. Allah lets the people know his real intention on the Day of Resurrection. And he who does good things in public, to show off and when the praise of people allow him to disclose his real intention and humiliated and then they lie or and eiling Roger, law protect us from that people state
goes without saying that repentance done for sure will not be accepted by law. In fact, such an act in and of itself becomes a sin, for which repentance is also needed.
In remembering a law and turning to him in repentance, the sinner has acknowledged his errors. However, his confession of his sins should be to Allah alone, as only he alone can forgive them.
And not any human intermediary or jinn intermediary.
Well, my feroza, Luba Illa, Allah
that's very explicit, and who can forgive sins besides Allah? Allah asks us, Allium, Ron, verse 135.
The righteous act of Toba must also be performed, while maintaining consciousness of a law throughout. So consciousness of Allah has to be added to this first principle of remembrance of Allah for acts of worship done in a purely ritualistic manner,
wherein words are mumbled quickly, limbs are moved reflexively and mindlessly, are totally unacceptable to Allah and are of no benefit to humans or the jinn.
I've already reported that the prophets Allah emphatically stated this point as follows are their own law and to move in own ability Jabba why alemu Allah Allah Allah is the G will do I mean the pallmann are feeling
call on a law in prayer, confidence that it will be answered. But know that a law does not answer the prayer of an unmindful playful heart.
When one is aware of one's actions, they become deliberate and can be directed correctly but in an unconscious
state they become meaningless. Consequently, according to divine law, the Sharia
man is not judged sinful for errors committed while in a state of sleep or unconsciousness. As a child,
prior to puberty,
in a state of real insanity, as well as those genuinely done mistakenly, or due to forgetfulness.
Low in some cases, compensation may still have to be paid to those affected. Though the sin is lifted,
there is a consequence in this world in some cases.
We should note also
if Allah has seen fit to cover a person's sins, they should keep them to themselves, unless they are earnestly seeking atonement, through legal action against them. As some of the companions did. They came to the prophets I seldom confess sins until they were stoned to death.
I've already gone through the process. I'm not saying Coloma tiene
el el moja Hebrew.
All of the people of my oma will be pardoned for their sins, except those who publicize them.
The second principle or condition, for the for the acceptance of
once the believers have remembered a law and realize their sin, they are now obliged to turn to Allah in repentance immediately, without any hesitation or the delay
if they sincerely want to repent.
Important point the postponement of Toba is the result of either a deliberate desire on the part of sinners to prolong the illicit pleasure derived from their sins,
or doubt on the part of ignorance sinners, whether or not Allah would accept their repentance.
In the first case,
with the desire to prolong pleasure.
Sinners have compounded themselves and should seek forgiveness for their delay.
While in the second case, they need to be informed that no sin is too great for a lot to forgive. If they earnestly repent. Allah has emphasized the need for quick response to sin saying in the matoba to Allah Allah He Linda de nehama Luna Su, Vidya holla from Maya to buena miltary. favela, aka tubal Lago, la him, what can Allahu I Li man hakima
surely Allah will only forgive those who do sins in ignorance, and soon turn in repentance, and soon turn in repentance. These are the ones whom Allah will forgive for allies all knowing, all wise who are in the cyber 70.
The longer one delays the repentance, more difficult to become for us to do so. Because the sin will have a greater opportunity to take root in the heart and desires will be given a bigger chance to rationalize the sin and overcome the conscience.
In most cases, since I immediately identified by the God given awareness with an evil with which each and every soul was created, this reality has been clearly enunciated by Allah and the final revelation. well enough saying Why am I so why
Jorah taqwa by the soul and the one who created and proportioned it, then inspired it to wrong and right. So our shamis versus seven and eight. There's really no excuse for deferring tober to a later date, especially considering the uncertainty of the future, which will also often emphasizes in the Koran.
My tidying up soon, my dad taxable other
My attended enough soon, the IE all of them to moot. No soul knows what it will earn tomorrow. Nor does it know in what part of the earth it will die.
So look, man, verse 34.
Consequently, believers who are sincerely seeking a last party will not delay in the least, but will turn to the oft forgiving creator. As soon as they realize that they've fallen into sin.
The speed at which they turn back to Allah will be the measure of their sincerity and the level of their faith.
is that of cessation.
The immediate turning in repentance has to be accompanied by an immediate abandonment of the sin for which forgiveness is sought.
sincere repentance from a sin cannot possibly take place, while we willingly and knowingly continue to commit to sin.
If we are not prepared to give up the sin without delay, then we're not really prepared to repent.
As such, any verbal expression of repentance, or spoken request for forgiveness, without abstinence,
will only be mindless which realistic
which is invalid due to lack of sincerity.
Allah himself has made
his granting of forgiveness dependent upon the cessation of the sinful act for which repentance is made.
While I'm you siru Allah ma Alou for whom Yala moon hula Jessa Oh home, Mama Farah tune mid Robin.
And for those who do not knowingly persist in Roth,
they have the in the wrong that they have done is a reward of forgiveness from their Lord.
They don't knowingly persist in the wrong
this is stressed
abstinence or giving up the wrong is a critical principle for the acceptance of repentance. That is called cessation. This prerequisite of cessation for absolution can also be found mentioned in many of the teachings of the provinces. For example, I've already reported that on one occasion the Messenger of Allah said
whenever a believer commits a sin, a black spot appears on his art in our movement is another candidate not to touch on soda fee policy.
If he repents and desist
and ask forgiveness is hard to be polished cleat
for in taba
was started Farah
socail upon boo.
But if he does more since the black spots will increase, and that is the rust, which Allah mentioned in the Scripture.
By no means, but rust has covered their hearts from the sins they do.
Calla Bal Chrono Palooza him, Matt can we accept McAfee in verse 14.
Consequently, it may be said that tobacco from a particular sin without immediate abandonment of that sin is not true doba.
As such, it will not be acceptable to allow and the penitent will not be absolved from his or her sin.
without cessation resembles the sacramental approach to penance, found in some branches of Christianity. And it gives the sin ample time to lodge itself even more firm.
In the heart,
the abandonment of sin will become progressively more difficult to accomplish as time passes, and the will to resist becomes weaker and weaker.
This will also affect our attempts to repent from other sins, and will instead cause us to develop a pattern of falsehood with ourselves.
And as you become increasingly able, or increasingly unable to desist from minor sins, that will also affect our ability to abstain from major sins.
If the cycle continues, our hearts become increasingly covered by the rest of our sins, which will gradually form a veil of darkness, blocking us from the light of truth and true faith.
Our organs of sight and hearing would simultaneously be veiled from the truth, and we will have an aversion to being around righteous people are hearing words of righteousness. Though in this state, we may still claim to be believers.
Criticism and slander will form the basis of our conversations. Even when we speak about religion and the religious
and praise and admiration will characterize our statements about the disbelievers in the world of disbelief. May Allah protect us from such a wretched state? Allah has clearly described these characteristics of such types of individuals, such types of individuals at the beginning of the Quran, in stark contrast to true believers.
Allah says there and then levena cafaro so I wanna lay him and I'm Lampton, zero ly minimal, as well. For those who reject faith, it is the same whether you want them or you did not warn them. It will not believe pata Milan obey Him Allah Sumerian laws put a seal on their hearts and on their herrings while I decided him rush hour and their eyes will have on them a veil.
While at home I've been Avi and they will have a grave
woman a nasty Maya kulu Iman belay over Leoville aka my homie movement in
and among these people are some who say we believe in a lot of the last day but they really don't believe
you're hiding oh and Allah when levena amanu for Maya for the owner and now
my ish Oh.
They attempt to deceive a line and then the believers but they only delete deceive themselves without realizing it. So Al Baqarah verses six tonight. An excellent example of the cessation from sin principle.
And its importance to the acceptance of repentance can be found in the Quranic statement of the grave sin of dealing an interest Riba in financial transactions. Allah stated there, well hello Allahu Allah
wahama Reba from Anza who Miranda to me Robbie Franta fellow masala.
But I'm Rahul Illa. Allah, Allah is permitted train and forbidden interests.
Those who desist after receiving direction from their Lord those who desist, give it up stop after receiving directions from the Lord will be pardoned for what took place in the past. Their case is for a law to judge
woman either for hula girls have been naughty, comfy have only do
but whoever returns to it to be in eternal
habitation in the hellfire.
Whereas 275 of swirl
those who continue to disobey laws, commands have fallen into the clutches of Satan and deviously tried to rationalize their persistent rebellion against the divine law by claiming in normal Barrow, Miss Lord Reba. trade is similar to interest. Yes, trade and interest do have similarities but they also
have many differences.
They're similar, but there are paid and forbade interest. I love who they are wahala Marina, the harm to society and their differences is grave and great enough that a law made trade allowable, and interest not.
In fact, all prohibited things share similarities with their counterparts among with the permit civil things. Beef is similar to pork.
Grape juice is similar to wine.
animals that die on their own are similar to those that are slaughtered.
Marriage is similar to cohabitation
and capital punishment is similar to murder.
Sale By honest promotion is similar to sale by deception.
But one is permitted by law and the other is not.
Thus, the essence of the issue is not about what our limited individual perceptions think, is beneficial and harmful. But what Allah at the web, the partner and the Creator of all things knows to be harmful
and knows what is beneficial in spite of their similarities,
the creator of things knows
what is more harmful than beneficial in spite of their similarities.
The fourth principle is that of exoneration.
If this in for which repentance is sought, involves the violation of human rights.
You stole somebody's property, and you still have it. These rights must first be restored, for absolution to be granted. You can't keep that stolen property
and ask forgiveness while keeping it.
So for example,
anything any property of others which has been taken,
or their honor, which has been mismatched and slandered,
these rights have to be restored.
Because Allah will not accept the prayers of one who lives off stolen property,
and the fixed punishments, the hadoo of 80 lashes as prescribed for slanders of chaste women and men.
And we all know the Hadees narrated by Abu huraira about
the case of a disheveled and dusty man on a long journey, who raises his hands up towards the sky pleading, yada, yada be, oh, Lord, oh, Lord, but his food and drink and clothing are all unlawful and he is nourished unlawfully? How can his prayers be answered? The process and the last? How can the prayers of such a person be answered?
Furthermore, any fulfillment
or any unfulfilled rights in this life will be taken from the wrongdoers scale of good deeds on the Day of Judgment, when no one can afford to spare any righteousness, which is in their favor, or era quoted. The promises alumna, saying, whoever has wronged his brother, with regard to his honor or anything else, should seek His pardon now, before the time when neither dinars or their hands will be of any benefit.
And at that time, if he has good deeds and amount of them equal to the wrong he ground that he's done,
will be taken
from his file of good deeds.
But if he has no remaining goodies that
good has been taken until they're finished, then the sins of the wrong persons will be put on him. Or
this life the violation of human rights also exposes sinners to calamities resulting from prayers against them, of those who have been wronged. If not boss related that when the prophet SAW Sal and said more
As a medieval as governor of Yemen, he told them it Ducky Dawa tell Manu
in laser vein
ouabain Allah He hijab beware of the curse of one who is oppressed,
for surely there is no veil between his or her prayer and the law.
sincere repentance cannot take place within a context of continued oppression and violation of the rights of others. If the owner of property is unknown, or unavailable, it shouldn't be given to the next of kin if known or donated to the poor. If neither the owner nor his relatives I know
it should be given away in charity.
The repentant sinner must at all costs is Claire, himself or herself, have any illegally obtained possessions
or any other violations done like slander, backbiting or false rumors, especially those for which is seeking absolution.
So clearing the slate before seeking repentance from Allah is absolutely necessary.
We have now come to the end of part one of our session 57 a.
Part Two will follow shortly. Allah willing in it, we will
cover the remaining conditions. Numbers five, six and seven.
For the acceptance of repentance under Eben Paul's first Divine Name application principle, along with the remaining three principles for adopting and applying the Beautiful Names of a law, which he proposed.
And our usual closing the eyes using the Divine Name at the web will be made at the end of Part Two in sha Allah.

They came in a bit late.
going on now to our questions. Sister Madeira tajudeen
asks, Is it allowed for a woman to change her surname to her husband's name?
No, it isn't in Islam. However, in some countries, this is an obligation.
They require it according to the system, the western system, which comes from the ancient Roman principles of the male, attaching his name to his possessions. So he will put his name on his house, put his name on his slave, put his name on his wife
and his children.
There all is part of his possessions. So in the Islamic system, woman keeps the name of her father,
as Allah said, Call them by the names of their fathers. As that is more just the side of the law.
However, as I said, if you can't do to other factors, then
have to submit to the law of the land that in which we live. And
ask allows forgiveness and carry on. Question from our instagramers.
So my question is why Muslims are going backwards of Islam day by day?
Well, it is from your limited
you concluded that Muslims are going backwards day by day. In fact, Muslims are going forwards, day by day, quite the opposite of what you are imagining.
Because if you go back 100 years from now, and you look at the state of Muslims, even 50 years ago, where they were,
they are far better off today than they were back then.
And if you just look at the job, which I've pointed out before, as some of the scholars pointed out, that you can judge the state of Islam of people by the hijab of their women
100 years ago, 50 years ago, people weren't wearing Hijab period.
Many countries, there was no idea.
Now, your job is spread all over the room.
So we have now banks, which
have replaced interest dealings with Islamic principles. Islamic banks
50 years ago, they never existed.
They weren't even dreamed up. The whole Muslim world was sunk into rebar
and drowning. All of their dealings, bank dealings etc, was involving Riba.
Today, we have an alternative which is spreading faster and faster throughout the Muslim world.

Brother, how does
their judgment work? For example, people who have died? are they waiting for the day of judgment? Or already being judged?
This is a question commonly asked.
The point is when we die we leave the time.
just like when we go to sleep, you go to sleep. Sometimes you wake up, and you think I only slept for 10 minutes, you look at your clock, oh, I slept for two hours, three hours.
Sometimes you go to sleep, you wake up.
You think, ah, I slept long, peaceful sleep, when you check your clock only slept for 20 minutes. That's all. So what happens is that when you enter that state, when your soul is lifted from your body, still connected, but lifted.
As a law describes it,
in that state,
you're you are not no longer conscious of time. So similarly, the person who dies and just about as
between death and the arm, it's the same for everybody.
that period of time is the same for everybody to die, you enter the state.
Whatever the process, I'm told us will happen will be asked about our religion, the prophet sent to us
and who was our Lord?
And the answer those questions, the judgment takes place. And all of this is happening
simultaneously to everybody.
And the judgment will take place with everybody.
So nobody's waiting for everybody else to die.
The 1000 years, 2000 years.
That's not the way it works.
Five, check us out How do scholars become so intelligent
and good at memorizing things.

can I marry a non Muslim and then convert her into Islam?
Better, you've converted to Islam, then merrier. That's better.
marry her with the intention to converter and then fail,
and you have children and then struggle, tossing, pulling and pushing and so on. So trying to
raise your children as Muslims when your wife
doesn't want to raise them as Muslims.
Also, you should keep in mind that if that person is a non Muslim, Christian or Jew, yes, you can marry a non Muslim, Hindu constructionist, Buddhist, or any other of the religions around the world. It's not allowed for you to marry her
in that state.
Khan asks, What is your ruling on mindfulness or mine? mindfulness meditation, on sounds found in nature.
But if you want to
meditate on sounds in nature you can
just getting pushed on Muslim society a lot these days.
And why should we do it? When we have the remembrance of Allah?
the remembrance of Allah and what helps you to remember Allah then you can do it. Well, you know if if you're, if you're a reflection on
the sounds of nature helps you to remember a lot because you're connecting them, then that's perfectly okay.
