00:03:41--> 00:03:43

session 59

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

I don't know

00:03:47--> 00:03:53

the kind the compassionate name number 82.

00:03:58--> 00:04:00

In terms of its Quranic location,

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

the Divine Name arose

00:04:05--> 00:04:07

is mentioned in 10 places in the Quran.

00:04:09--> 00:04:19

Among them is one my Canon Law who Lilia E minor come in the lobby Nancy naraku for Rahim

00:04:20--> 00:04:25

and Allah would never have caused you to lose your faith.

00:04:26--> 00:04:36

That is your previous prayers. Indeed. Allah is kind and merciful to people throughout about Coronavirus 143

00:04:38--> 00:04:39

linguistically,

00:04:40--> 00:04:48

rove comes from the trilateral route RA, Hamza, Hamza, and far

00:04:49--> 00:04:50

and

00:04:51--> 00:04:58

the verbal noun from this route is fatten

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

rock

00:05:02--> 00:05:12

It has three main meanings, the first of which is to be gentle, kind and forgiving. The second is to be merciful and compassionate.

00:05:14--> 00:05:18

And the third meaning is to show pity and tenderness.

00:05:19--> 00:05:24

This route appears some 13 times in the Quran in two derived forms,

00:05:27--> 00:05:30

either as examples or fatten

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

pity and raw, often compassionate.

00:05:37--> 00:05:48

The word Rolf is in the intensive pattern for all of the present participle, or participle.

00:05:49--> 00:05:50

Wha if,

00:05:51--> 00:06:01

relative to Allah, the term growth refers to a law's tender affection, the highest levels of His mercy and compassion.

00:06:02--> 00:06:06

The upper limit of His Divine Name or Rahim

00:06:07--> 00:06:12

although the meaning of roaf is similar to Rahim,

00:06:14--> 00:06:20

except that it focuses on the utmost tenderness, kindness and affection,

00:06:21--> 00:06:25

which accompanies the outpouring of mercy and compassion.

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

of

00:06:29--> 00:06:31

linguistically speaking

00:06:32--> 00:06:52

razza which is the noun from the participle refers to the tenderness, kindness and affection with which Allah bestows His mercy upon us. In mama Sally mentioned that the Divine Name, a row

00:06:53--> 00:07:02

has the concept of pity embedded in it. And that pity is an increase in the level of mercy.

00:07:03--> 00:07:12

That is rove has the same basic meaning as Rahim but it is in a more intensive form.

00:07:14--> 00:07:39

Allah Rolfe is the one who generously bestows his compassionate mercy upon us, and has extreme pity for us in so many different ways and forms. The ways include multiple warnings, pitfalls, of the pitfalls and the withholding of things we strongly desire in order to prevent hidden harm.

00:07:40--> 00:07:51

All of this for us to be mercifully and compassionately guided to achieve ultimate success in both this world and the next.

00:07:53--> 00:07:57

The linking of the two Divine Names are often a Rahim

00:07:58--> 00:08:02

is surprisingly strong

00:08:03--> 00:08:20

in that of the 10 times, where a lot of Divine Name a Rolf, the kind and compassionate is mentioned in the Quran, eight of those times it is mentioned along with His Divine Name, a regime the Restore of mercy.

00:08:21--> 00:08:35

The difference between the concept of Rafa compassion and the concept of Rajma Mercy is that after a calamity strikes,

00:08:36--> 00:08:44

Allah Rahim has mercy on us. On the other hand, Raksha compassion refers to laws,

00:08:45--> 00:09:22

a lot of roles, taking care of us and warning us so that we can protect ourselves from our own punishment. According to the Imam according to be the author of the famous Philip tafsir called al jamea Leah camel Quran. The meaning of the noun Rafa is a delightful blessing from all aspects, whereas Rama could be painful and stressful at the moment, but delightful in the end.

00:09:24--> 00:09:26

Consequently, Allah said

00:09:28--> 00:09:37

zania towards zanni fudgey Naidu ledoux Kula Hayden Minh Houma me at agenda will at

00:09:38--> 00:09:42

the Hema photon feed in Isla

00:09:43--> 00:09:51

lush, the unmarried woman and the unmarried man found guilty of sexual intercourse

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

100 times and do not fail to do so out of feelings.

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

have misplaced pity and compassion for them in a law's religion surah Noor, verse two,

00:10:09--> 00:10:29

instead of telling us not to withhold the divinely revealed punishment, out of mercy for them, Allah said, out of pity for them because lashing them for their sin is itself a mercy for them and not pity.

00:10:30--> 00:10:37

For him for loss attribute as Rafa covers any creature, no evil at all will be fathered.

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

And hopefully she said,

00:10:42--> 00:10:46

reflect on this distinction between Russia and Russia

00:10:48--> 00:10:51

as it is why they are mentioned together.

00:10:53--> 00:11:01

Well and Allah for all fun Rahim. And because a law is kind and most merciful. So our norm was 20

00:11:03--> 00:11:08

on the basis that Russia is more general than rosmah.

00:11:09--> 00:11:31

So whenever a law wishes mercy for his servant, he blesses him with it, except for the fact that the mercy could be granted immediately after a calamity. While in the case of rough Russia, it is the opposite of this, it is never preceded by calamity.

00:11:32--> 00:11:37

So in summary, it may be said that the difference between Rama and Rafa

00:11:38--> 00:11:43

is that Rafa is the most intense form of Russia,

00:11:44--> 00:11:48

and is linguistically a more eloquent expression of mercy.

00:11:50--> 00:12:08

And there are, Russia is more general than Rama, as Rama could come from something disliked, or immediately after something disliked as befallen us, while Russia is good from all perspectives.

00:12:10--> 00:12:21

Moving on to the application, according to him battles, four principles, the first of which is to adopt where applicable,

00:12:23--> 00:12:50

the Divine Name arose, maybe adopted and applied by human beings and the Djinn in two basic ways. The first is to recognize and appreciate a loss, loving, gentle kindness, which he pours on us throughout our lives. And the second is that we become kind to our fellow human beings, and a lot of creatures as a law has been kind to us.

00:12:51--> 00:12:52

So looking at the first

00:12:54--> 00:12:57

to adopt the Divine Name by reflection allows Russia

00:12:59--> 00:13:19

allows kindness, in guidance and Remembrance comes first. We should reflect each and every day on the compassionate mercy of our role in guiding us to be good Muslims. We should also contemplate on all the time the law has warned us to various signs in our life

00:13:20--> 00:14:04

to avoid bad situations. Whenever we have the feeling that we should not go to a certain place It is part and parcel of molars warnings, we should be aware that even reflection and contemplation is itself a form of a badass worship. It is the worship of divine remembrance, which Allah instructed us to do regularly saying, one score Rebecca kathira. And remember your Lord frequently through our Allium Ron, verse 41. Any further informed us that our five times daily prayers were primarily ordained to help us to establish divine remembrance of him

00:14:06--> 00:14:16

as attainment of a large reward of mercy and compassion is dependent on his remembrance. So he instructed us saying,

00:14:18--> 00:14:21

Well, if they miss salata, livecareer

00:14:22--> 00:14:31

upcoming salata, living Cree, Surah Taha, verse 14 establish regular prayer in order to remember me.

00:14:33--> 00:14:37

Last compassion in preserving the reward of valid worship.

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

rove does not allow any genuine acts of worship directed to him, for which he rewarded his worshippers previously, to be lost due to changes in circumstances with worshipers. As he said, Well, my Canon luckily your di imana come in

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

The law had been nasty not all for Ryan.

00:15:03--> 00:15:11

But Allah would never allow your acts of faith to be lost indeed, allies gentle and merciful with his people.

00:15:13--> 00:15:27

So Al Baqarah verse 143, you mentioned earlier, this verse was revealed in order to clarify for the believers, that whoever prayed towards better marketers, mustard or lochsa, the Jewish Qibla

00:15:29--> 00:15:31

of the temple of Prophet Solomon,

00:15:32--> 00:15:35

before the change of the Templar to Mecca,

00:15:36--> 00:15:49

reward of their prayers would not be lost. Likewise, the reward for sincere prayers made by those who died, prayer prior to the change of the Qibla would all be preserved.

00:15:51--> 00:16:15

Lost compassion. In his warnings in preparation for meeting our Lord allows rockface also evident in the fact that he frequently warned us of the severity of his punishments, and sternly forbade us from wantonly disobeying him before we meet him on the Day of Judgment.

00:16:16--> 00:16:26

These warnings were all in order for us to properly prepare ourselves for meeting him. By strictly avoiding all that displeases.

00:16:28--> 00:16:59

On the day, whenever we sold we'll be showing all the good It has done, and confronted with all the evil it has done. It will wish that there was a great distance between it and its evil acts. Allah warns us of him, Allah warns you of him and allies gentle with his worshippers. Yo Mataji do cool enough sin ma I may not mean higher in Matata when I mean like Min Soo.

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

What do lo anabaena ha webinar Who am I done by EDA?

00:17:07--> 00:17:13

Or your hands zero como Lago nafsa. Well, love would have often been a bad

00:17:15--> 00:17:16

so I am Ron verse 30.

00:17:19--> 00:17:29

Allows careful and kind protection of the senses and deeds of the believers is another way by which he expresses his route.

00:17:31--> 00:17:43

And this is particularly evident in his guarding the senses and these of the truly obedient believers, which is an expression of the perfection of his kindness to the truth.

00:17:44--> 00:17:48

The prophet SAW Selim quoted a lot in the Hadees Pudsey as saying,

00:17:50--> 00:18:08

My takadanobaba la Abdi vishay in a heartbeat, La Jolla, mammoth turiddu la. The most beloved thing with which my slave comes close to me, is that which I made obligatory form on him.

00:18:09--> 00:18:30

My servant will continue to come closer to me by voluntary acts of worship, until I love him. And if I love him, I will be his hearing by which he hears his sight by which he sees his hands by which he grasps and his foot or his feet by which he walks.

00:18:32--> 00:18:46

Although this narration is often used by Muslim mystics Sophie's to support the heretical claim that it is possible for human beings who are purified to worship to become one with Allah.

00:18:47--> 00:19:08

This union is commonly called amongst Sophie's elfin aphylla, the solution unto Allah. It is all it also became the basis for individuals like her Lodge, a ninth century Christian era, priest, Persian mystic, was executed in back that

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

he claimed that

00:19:15--> 00:19:23

he had become one with Allah and others have made similar claims in different parts of the Muslim world.

00:19:24--> 00:19:27

Under this mystic cloud,

00:19:28--> 00:19:32

may Allah protect us from such a state of utter misguidance.

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

Instead, in this head is Pudsey Allah describes how he protects the senses and body parts of the sincere believers from being corrupted by the satanic delusions of this temporal world. Allah will help and bless his true worshipers through his compassion, mercy and kindness, to only hear, see and grasp what is pleasing to Allah

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

And only to only go to locations acceptable to

00:20:05--> 00:20:15

a spiritual, emotional and psychological state, which we all should strive for, to receive a loss full Russia and Rama

00:20:17--> 00:20:23

allows compassion for the penitent to ensure acceptance

00:20:24--> 00:20:28

has in it an example of a laws Russia

00:20:29--> 00:21:13

wherein Allah has left the door open for individual repentance until the last instant, when death is upon us. At that point, regret and sorrow will be to no avail. And all attempts at repentance will be rejected. However, those under the rupture of the law will be blessed to repent before it is too late. A lot justice issue in the Quran and very crystal clear terms, saying Walesa Toba to Linda de nyama Luna say he had his Haggadah. Aha, I had a woman mount fall in the rebuttal and

00:21:15--> 00:21:53

repentance will not be accepted from those who continue to do evil until death comes upon one of them. And he says indeed, I've repented now, sir and the servers at too late. Prophet Mohammed Al Salam was reported by Abdullah live and Rama to have reiterated the Lord's words and further extended the timeframe of repentance with the additional clarification that Allah Most Great and grace of grace, that Allah Most great and glorious, will accept his sermon repentance until the death rattle begins

00:21:55--> 00:21:57

in the law, as our gel

00:21:58--> 00:22:02

layer caballo toe button Abdi, my lamb

00:22:04--> 00:22:05

you're out of here.

00:22:08--> 00:22:25

Further Russia, compassion and kindness can be seen in a loss leaving the door open for group repentance until the major sign of the ending of the world when the sun rises in the West.

00:22:26--> 00:22:35

Abu huraira quoted the bouncer Solomon saying men tab a cobbler and top LaRoche shamsul men Margaret Bihar, taba Allahu,

00:22:36--> 00:22:45

Allah will accept the repentance of anyone who seeks it as long as it is before the sun rises in the West.

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

Subhana Allah.

00:22:53--> 00:22:57

There is a story which the province on Salaam related to us

00:22:58--> 00:23:04

about a mass murderer to kill killed some 99 people.

00:23:07--> 00:23:12

Upside 100 He is the one who narrated it from the processor.

00:23:15--> 00:23:29

When he said there was a man in the past among the Israelites, who had killed 99 people, and then went around the region seeking religious scholars who could show him the way to salvation.

00:23:31--> 00:23:44

He was first told about a pious monk, so he traveled to the monk and informed him that you had killed 99 people. However, when he asked the monk if there was any chance for him to make repentance, the monk

00:23:45--> 00:23:49

disgustingly replied that there was not

00:23:51--> 00:23:55

How could he possibly think that there could be repentance for him?

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

So the man killed the monk out of frustration and completed with him 100 murders. However, he still felt the need to repent. So he continued to ask about religious scholars until he was directed to a scholar. And he told the scholar of the 100 people he had murdered and asked if there was any chance for him to make repentance. And the scholar told him Yes, and directed him to a different land.

00:24:27--> 00:24:39

where there were many people devoted to prayer and acts of worship. The scholar told him to go live there and join them in worship, and not returned to his native that.

00:24:40--> 00:24:42

So the man immediately set out for the land,

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

but he died on the way.

00:24:46--> 00:24:51

While dying, he turned his chest towards the village in that land,

00:24:52--> 00:24:56

where he had hoped his repentance would have been accepted.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

So the angels of mercy and the angels have

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

Punishment quarreled amongst themselves. The angels of mercy argue that the angels of punishment

00:25:07--> 00:25:20

argued with the angels of punishment, saying, this is a man who has come seeking a loss forgiveness was sorry, for instance. But the angels of punishment replied that he had done no good at all.

00:25:22--> 00:25:27

Allah ordered the village, in the land of the righteous people to come closer to him,

00:25:29--> 00:25:32

closer to the math, and he ordered the village

00:25:34--> 00:25:38

in the evil land, to go farther away from him.

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

So,

00:25:43--> 00:25:51

then another angel appeared in human form and told them to measure which land he was nearest to.

00:25:52--> 00:26:03

When they imagined they found that he was one hand span that is, between the thumb and the little finger, it was one hand span near

00:26:05--> 00:26:11

to the land of the righteous people to town in the land, the righteous people,

00:26:12--> 00:26:16

to which he was heading. So he was forbidden, forgiven,

00:26:17--> 00:26:30

and the angels of mercy took possession of his soul. This is a true story related by the prophet SAW Center, which perfectly illustrates the kind, compassionate and

00:26:31--> 00:26:40

50 which Allah has for even the violence of these creatures, if they sincerely seek to correct themselves,

00:26:41--> 00:26:45

the pious but ignorant Mark cause his own death.

00:26:48--> 00:26:52

How can we say that? Because he gave false information

00:26:53--> 00:26:56

and discouraging information to a mass murderer.

00:26:57--> 00:27:15

He broke a basic rule of divine guidance, which Allah reiterated for us in the final revelation. First eluana decree in quantum law tala mu as those who know the people of knowledge, if you don't know. So allambie avars seven,

00:27:17--> 00:27:20

one might object saying that this rule is in the Quran.

00:27:21--> 00:27:35

However, it is such a basic rule that allow would surely have revealed it to Adam when he taught him the names of everything, as well as in his revelations to the prophets who came after him.

00:27:37--> 00:27:44

When the penitent mass murder, asked the scholar he was finally rightly guided.

00:27:48--> 00:27:54

The village in the land in which she had grown up was one filled with evil people,

00:27:55--> 00:27:57

and their evil rubbed off on him.

00:27:58--> 00:28:05

But his basic desire for God led him to continue to look for repentance in order to purify himself.

00:28:06--> 00:28:13

The good environment of the village in the land of the righteous people would have been completely

00:28:14--> 00:28:18

enough, would have been completely enough to change him.

00:28:20--> 00:28:26

But though he died before reaching it, just as his good intention alone,

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

was enough for Allah.

00:28:30--> 00:28:35

Allah rove intervened, forgave him and saved.

00:28:38--> 00:28:45

We can also see in a loss compassionate reduction of obligations in the Sharia is rough.

00:28:46--> 00:29:22

A lot rose compassion and kindness can be seen in the reduction of the levels of obligation in virtually all the basic Islamic rules, obligations and instructions. From the declaration of faith being kept secret declaration of faith is supposed to be done openly, it shouldn't be kept a secret. But in the case of the Najafi, the ruler of Ethiopia, who provided a safe haven for the first of those who made hedra out of Mecca to Ethiopia.

00:29:23--> 00:29:39

We can also see it in tyerman. In the place of Voodoo, you can find water, you're allowed to pad your hands on clean Earth, wipe your hands and wipe your face to replace Voodoo

00:29:41--> 00:29:47

shortening and joining of our five times daily prayers which are time sensitive during our journeys.

00:29:48--> 00:29:52

Also being excused from fasting during Ramadan if we're on a journey,

00:29:54--> 00:29:58

as well as feeding the poor for those physically unable to fast

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

If one has no Zakat to pay, they can always give sadaqa and if they can't make Hajj, which is an obligation, the obligation on them is dropped from them, and they can make ombre instead, or stay at home and be rewarded for having the intention to make a catch.

00:30:21--> 00:30:31

All are divinely revealed compassionate reductions for the believers. As Alonso said you either log will become a neutron Wallah you read you become a loss

00:30:33--> 00:30:38

Allah wishes is for you or not difficulty to Al Baqarah verse 185.

00:30:41--> 00:30:57

We can also learn Rafa compassion, the compassion of a law from how the prophets are seldom lived that compassion. Allah rose described the Prophet Mohammed Salim himself as being rolfing Brahim.

00:30:58--> 00:31:22

He said, look at the jochum rasuluh men and physical azizan Alico Allah He might need to hurry soon. Aleykum will move me Nina are all for Rajiv, certainly a messenger from among yourselves has come to you. it grieves him that you should perish and he's extremely anxious regarding

00:31:23--> 00:31:36

and he is most kind and merciful to the beavers who are tober verse 128. The phrase in grieves him that you should perish means that he suffers from whatever causes you to suffer.

00:31:38--> 00:31:50

The phrase he is ardently anxious regarding you refers to the fact that the process alum who loved good for people strive with all of his might, so that goodness would reach them

00:31:52--> 00:31:55

and was very concerned about the guidance to truth.

00:31:56--> 00:32:32

He also dislike that evil will reach us and strove is that most to block it from affecting us. The last phrase, and he is most kind and merciful to the believers meant that he was extremely kind and merciful to his people. In fact, he was even more concerned about them than their own parents. As a result, his right to be followed shouldn't be given precedence over the rights of all other creatures, and it is obligatory on the oma to believe in Him, honor Him, respect him and praise Him.

00:32:33--> 00:33:04

We owe it to ourselves to seriously study the sera. The biography of the prophet SAW Selim to learn how compassionately and kindly dealt with his companions, his family, his wives, his children, and even his enemies. An example of his kindness to the oma can be seen in the fact that whenever he was given a choice between two halaal options, he would always choose the easiest, knowing that his choices would be followed by generations to go.

00:33:06--> 00:33:10

Also, he never took revenge for himself against anyone.

00:33:11--> 00:33:20

He would only take revenge for Islam. When a laws laws were violated. He had his servant and assembly Malik

00:33:21--> 00:33:26

was with him from the earliest of ages, grew up with him.

00:33:28--> 00:33:32

And he reported to the police on Sunday and never hit him even once.

00:33:34--> 00:33:37

And he never even scolded him.

00:33:40--> 00:33:43

This was the promise of silence, kindness is compassion.

00:33:45--> 00:33:56

He often used to begin prayers with the intention of extending them by reciting long chapters of the brand sometimes even recite, swirl buchla one rock

00:33:57--> 00:33:58

that's unthinkable

00:33:59--> 00:34:01

for us today, but he did it.

00:34:03--> 00:34:11

However, if you heard that baby cry, he would immediately shorten his prayer in order to avoid making difficulty for the child's mother.

00:34:14--> 00:34:23

This Divine Name a rove contains attributes of gentleness and levels which human beings cannot hope to possess.

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

However, we can apply gentleness in many different religious activities, which were obliged to perform.

00:34:37--> 00:34:38

We should note

00:34:39--> 00:34:49

in early sessions, I addressed the concept of the relevance of applying the Divine Names to the Dawa imperative.

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

There is a general obligation on all Muslims to convey Islam to the world which requires them to be gentle and calm.

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

The message because harshness will likely discourage people from listening to the truth. Allah even addressed this issue with regards to the Prophet Muhammad Salaam, himself, saying, la quinta for vandalism called beat them for doom and Holic. If you were harsh and hard hearted, they would have fled from around you to Allium Ron, verse 159. Furthermore, Allah openly stated that it was as a result of His Divine Mercy

00:35:34--> 00:35:52

is Rama. That's a law that the prophet SAW said that was gentle to those who invited to Islam. Fabi Mirage met him in a law he lynnderella who and by the mercy of Allah, you dealt with them gently through Allium, Ron, verse 59.

00:35:54--> 00:36:11

The one calling to Islam should always consider the fact that the law instructed prophets Moses and Aaron to gently communicate the message of Islam to Pharaoh, who, at that time was claiming he was God Almighty.

00:36:13--> 00:36:31

rove said for hula who Colin layan en la la Hui, Kuru Oh yaksha So speak to him mildly, speak to Pharaoh mildly both of you, in order that he may reflect or fear God.

00:36:34--> 00:36:35

So a diverse 44

00:36:37--> 00:36:57

gentleness and Tao affects the hearts of those being in fight and makes them want to listen to the message. In order to further stress the importance of gentle invitation. The Messenger of Allah was quoted by Julia even Abdullah Al Badgley, as saying

00:36:59--> 00:37:01

may hear from or if

00:37:02--> 00:37:20

you're from an Hira Kula, whoever is this is deprived of gentleness is deprived of all good promise all Salam also prayed for and against the leaders of the oma regarding their methods of governance.

00:37:22--> 00:37:24

Whether Kinder or harsh to their subject.

00:37:26--> 00:37:28

He said, in da,

00:37:29--> 00:37:33

O Allah, be hard on those, whoever

00:37:35--> 00:37:39

acquires control over the affairs of my nation and decide on them.

00:37:41--> 00:37:55

Well, ah, be hard on whoever acquires control over the affairs of my nation, and is hard on them and be kind to whoever gains control over the affairs of my nation, and this guy and with them.

00:37:58--> 00:38:01

It should be noted, however, the Rapha has its limits.

00:38:02--> 00:38:21

When it comes to what is displeasing to Allah, it is wrong, to be compassionate and kind by ignoring since. Similarly, it is wrong not to give sick people their medicine, out of pity and compassion simply because they can't stand the taste,

00:38:22--> 00:38:28

even though it may lead to their further sickness, or even their death.

00:38:30--> 00:38:36

compassion for the sick is to help them take their medicines, even though it is terrible tasting

00:38:37--> 00:38:45

cancer. Consequently, Allah instructed us to not restrain from applying to produce the fixed laws on which

00:38:47--> 00:38:49

those who are convicted

00:38:50--> 00:38:51

shouldn't be

00:38:52--> 00:38:53

punished.

00:38:56--> 00:39:06

The second way major way we said of applying the Divine Name of rove was by being kind and compassionate to others.

00:39:08--> 00:39:11

These Divine Names a rock man and a Rahim

00:39:12--> 00:39:14

like a rove

00:39:15--> 00:39:19

while impossible to adopt on the human scale,

00:39:20--> 00:39:22

whether we're looking at

00:39:24--> 00:39:35

rove or R Rahman r Rahim, we can't live a very similar meaning we can't adopt them on a human scale because their intranet.

00:39:37--> 00:39:47

However, they may be adopted by being merciful to our fellow human beings, and to allow us creatures on our limited scale.

00:39:49--> 00:39:56

Why do we know of Allah's infinite mercy should drive us to seek out ways of being merciful to allows creation

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

especially considering

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

That our mercy

00:40:03--> 00:40:07

to them will earn us more mercy from Allah.

00:40:09--> 00:40:16

The impact of belief in this name on the believers also

00:40:17--> 00:40:41

demonstrates the benefits of rough consciousness of the vast ocean of compassion containing the Divine Name or role of creating the believer keenness to consciously and continuously seek to achieve its benefits by doing all in his or her power, to receive a lot of grace and mercy.

00:40:42--> 00:40:50

Sometimes it is easy to be kind. But if people don't appreciate what we have done, we could stop being kind.

00:40:51--> 00:41:06

That level of kindness is dependent on others and is not self driven. Instead, we should strive to continue to be kind and compassionate, regardless of whether others appreciate it and thank us for it or not.

00:41:09--> 00:41:30

If our intention is seeking, alas, pleasure, whatever Pete, whether people appreciate our kindness or not, should be irrelevant. Just as a law continues to be kind and compassionate, regardless of our own negligence of his rights, of worship and obedience.

00:41:32--> 00:41:40

Now, obedience to Allah and His messenger is one of the factors which will

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

cause a lot to be compassionate.

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

And

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

Allah

00:41:51--> 00:42:01

Rolfe has made a medians to the province of Solomon himself a reason to receive the bounties of Allah's Divine Mercy are through your own law. Allah said

00:42:03--> 00:42:06

one Rasul Allah come to her moon,

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

obey Allah and the messenger

00:42:13--> 00:42:20

obey Allah and the messenger in order to receive mercy, terrarium Ron, verse 132.

00:42:22--> 00:42:38

Consequently, if we recognize that we are really in great need of Allah's mercy, we should immediately correct as much as we can, what is wrong with ourselves and bring our lives back in line with Islam.

00:42:39--> 00:42:42

That is, if we're seriously

00:42:43--> 00:42:47

one wanting laws, compassion and mercy.

00:42:48--> 00:43:00

If we're not serious, then we will just raise our hands in prayer and ignore the reality of our lives. Like the man on the journey which the prophet SAW Selim described. I've mentioned it on a number of occasions,

00:43:01--> 00:43:10

who was begging for a lot of help and mercy and a loss and the prophet SAW Selim said, how will Allah answer his prayers when his food is haram?

00:43:14--> 00:43:20

repentance is itself a cause for allows mercy.

00:43:22--> 00:43:23

Allah arose

00:43:25--> 00:43:49

compassionate also opened the doors of His mercy to all those who are sincerely repented. Saying call. Yeah a body. alanine Astra Fu rafu Allah unforeseen. Lotta Connor Toma Rahmatullah in Elia for the Nova Jamia in the whole world of Rahim

00:43:51--> 00:44:08

say all my servants who have oppressed themselves do not despair of Allah's mercy. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, he is all Forgiving, the Most Merciful surah Zuma verse 35.

00:44:09--> 00:44:27

Compassion is one of the greatest moral characteristics which allies encouraged servants to acquire. He praises messenger for this quality saying, well, Marcel Naka in LA Martin Illallah me. I only sent you as a mercy

00:44:28--> 00:44:55

that is addressed to Muhammad, Allah I only sent you as a mercy to the world's surah Lambie avarice 107. When the prophet SAW Selim was driven out of toys and stolen by its inhabitants, and Allah gave him the option to destroy the city and its inhabitants, totally. The province SLM instead requested that they not be wiped out, saying that perhaps from their descendants, there would come

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

some who would worship Allah

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

As he deserved to be worshipped

00:45:04--> 00:45:20

Likewise, when Muslims conquered Makkah without a fight and the inhabitants were driven the prophet SAW Selim out, tried to kill him. wage war against him and his followers, tortured his followers and killed some of them as well as

00:45:21--> 00:45:24

the beavers weren't under their power.

00:45:25--> 00:45:32

They expected him to slaughter them, as was the custom in that time, but instead he let them all go free.

00:45:34--> 00:45:51

Promises Ellen's Life is full of many such examples of compassion, mercy and kindness, which need to be revived in the minds of this generation, which has produced the likes of Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram Shabaab, Abu Sayyaf, etc.

00:45:53--> 00:45:58

The second way of application of a roof is to be gentle with others.

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

This Divine Name can also be applied by being thankful to our role for his gentleness, and by being a source of gentleness to others. We should make a special effort to look out for the poor, orphans, widows, prisoners, and all those in need around us by doing something to make their lives easier.

00:46:22--> 00:46:37

the least we can do is to give away our extra clothing or write a letter of support for those unjustly imprisoned as a province Our solemn was reported by his wife I should have said,

00:46:38--> 00:46:43

Whoever whenever gentleness is in a thing it beautifies it

00:46:44--> 00:46:59

in Irish pa Ly akun officiate in Louisiana. And whenever it is withdrawn from something it defaces it. Well, I own Xiao Ming che in in lashana.

00:47:02--> 00:47:04

We should be aware of the Da,

00:47:06--> 00:47:07

da

00:47:09--> 00:47:26

of the so called Islamic movements, which invites its followers to hate the believers. This is a common feature of the Dawa of modern extremists. extremist movements like the Boko Haram Shabaab ISIS, extreme Taliban etc.

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

This was never the basis of the Dow of the prophets, nor that of his companions, who carried Islam

00:47:37--> 00:48:13

to the rest of the world, as well as those who follow their example. Instead, a lot taught us to love our fellow Muslims and to pray for him and to pray to Him to remove any animosity towards them from their hearts. A lot taught us to saying prayers will add to geography for luminol Caitlin, Linda Xena, amanu robina in the Godot, four regime and do not put malice in our hearts towards those who believe our Lord, You are truly compassionate and merciful. So hasha verse 10,

00:48:16--> 00:48:20

we should strive to increase our feelings of compassion in our hearts.

00:48:21--> 00:48:30

We should always strive to be kind to others, and handle people's feelings with tenderness. It is easy to be rough and harsh.

00:48:31--> 00:48:34

But so difficult to be gentle and understanding.

00:48:35--> 00:49:10

Sometimes we are so busy with our own lives and our families, friends, we easily forget about others. The connection we feel with the Muslim Ummah is in fact a mirror of our own Eman. Our own faith robs us and I'm used to us use the same mirror metaphor to stress our responsibility to our fellow Muslim saying I'll movement mirror add to the movement. The believer is the believers mirror.

00:49:11--> 00:49:38

The least that we can do is to be aware of the situation of our fellow Muslims around the world and think of ways how to support them. Whether they are in Myanmar, Palestine, China, Yemen, Afghanistan, we should feel compassion for them and try to support and help them in any legitimate way possible. Even if all we can do is to pray for them.

00:49:39--> 00:49:48

For example, in every Western prayer at the end of the night, we should make sure that we sincerely remember the oma in our doors.

00:49:50--> 00:49:56

We should also be proactive and not inactive. Someone once said

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

all the time. I was waiting for someone

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

To do something about a situation

00:50:03--> 00:50:04

then I realized

00:50:05--> 00:50:08

Finally, that the someone was me.

00:50:09--> 00:50:17

Rolf has pity on us, so much so that he even warns us about how to avoid this punishment.

00:50:18--> 00:50:25

If we see our brother or sister in a low state of mind, on the verge of going astray or already astray,

00:50:27--> 00:50:32

we should feel concerned about them and advise them kindly and compassionately.

00:50:33--> 00:50:49

forbidding evil and enjoying good is a duty upon all of us. However, we don't take it seriously enough, even though law said quantum hydro michinoku allegedly not you were the best community ever brought forth for human guy

00:50:51--> 00:50:53

tommorow ninomaru fewer than Honda and in one car

00:50:55--> 00:51:19

because you commanded good and forbidding evil, or took manana Billa and you believe in Allah psoralen Ron verse one day, and the prophet SAW Selim also was quoted by to me my daddy, saying that the religion is based on good advice at Dino nasiha. Religion is what advice. Consequently,

00:51:20--> 00:51:25

we should take inspiration from the refer to kindness and compassion of a law

00:51:27--> 00:51:36

in our own lives, in order to motivate ourselves to warn and guide others, whether Muslims or non Muslims as much as we can.

00:51:38--> 00:51:57

Showing kindness and compassion, even for lost creatures help to build the Rapha. In ourselves. I've already quoted the prophets of Solomon saying, it was once a man who suffered from extreme thirst while walking on a journey. When he finally found a well he climbed down it and drank from it.

00:51:58--> 00:52:07

However, when he climbed back out, he saw an extremely thirsty dog, whose tongue hung from its mouth while licking the ground seeking moisture.

00:52:08--> 00:52:23

The man said to himself, this dog is suffering from a much worse thirst than I did. So he climbed back down into the world, filled his shoe in water, and held it to

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

the mouth of the dog.

00:52:28--> 00:52:45

The dog drank it and the law appreciated his deed, and forgave all of his sins. On another occasion when the prompts are seldom related a similar story about another man. And he related it also about a woman from the Israelites, but did something similar.

00:52:46--> 00:53:02

His companions asked him on messenger of Allah, is there a reward for being charitable even to animals? Rosalyn replied Yes, for every warm blooded creature, there is a reward for charity shown towards

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

Satan's trap,

00:53:06--> 00:53:11

an extreme compassion and exaggerated guidance now.

00:53:13--> 00:53:33

This is something that we need to have compassion and kindness. But when it goes to an extreme, when it goes beyond the limits, it's exaggerated, it can be very harmful. Satan and his followers want human beings to go to extremes and all of our fears,

00:53:34--> 00:53:49

religious and otherwise, because it is in extremism that Allah is easily displayed and sidelined. Like the Boko Haram, for example, their basic premise was that

00:53:50--> 00:53:58

studying the teachings of the West, studying from books designed by the West, etc, is

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

because it's created without faith.

00:54:06--> 00:54:07

It's atheistic.

00:54:09--> 00:54:10

So it's Haram.

00:54:11--> 00:54:55

Well, that's a legitimate complaint, that we as Muslims should have our own books, where morality is a part of the curriculum, it's inside the books. And our faith is expressed within the books directly or indirectly. That's no harm. But they went with two extremes with it. They just then said that studying in these schools altogether was how they went and burned schools, killed proprietors killed even children, kidnap them and all this under the name of preventing Western education from coming

00:54:56--> 00:54:57

on.

00:54:59--> 00:55:00

This is a big one

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

mistake.

00:55:03--> 00:55:57

So, this is bad bottom line that Satan and his followers want human beings to go to extremes in all of their affairs, especially the religious and otherwise, because it is an extremism that ally is easily disobeyed and sidelined. However, both align His Messenger continuously warn the believers against extremism allow one the Christians and the Jews about exaggerated extremism in their practice of religion saying, Yeah, hello, Kitab lotta floofy Danakil. People of the Scripture, do not exaggerate in your religion. So in the cyber is 171 and the browser center was also quoted by him that buzzer saying, Yeah, you in us, er, comando Hulu 50, or people beware of exaggeration in

00:55:57--> 00:56:06

religious affairs. For those who came before you were doomed, because of exaggeration, in religious affairs.

00:56:08--> 00:56:46

So if Satan and his army see us leaning towards compassion and kindness, they beautify, compassion and kindness and increase our love, for compassion and kindness until we are no longer upset by what upsets a lot and what he dislikes. If on the other hand, they see us leaning towards harshness and roughness. They beautify harshness, until we abandon goodness, righteousness, gentleness, and maintaining family ties, which were instructed to be done by a law

00:56:48--> 00:56:49

and His Messenger.

00:56:51--> 00:56:56

So you'll find extremists cutting off their families having nothing to do with their families,

00:56:58--> 00:56:59

because their families

00:57:01--> 00:57:04

committed errors or did not see as they saw.

00:57:06--> 00:57:14

So what do you find them doing is they blame and sensor, punish and hate what is beloved by Allah and His messenger.

00:57:16--> 00:57:19

The second principle of call

00:57:20--> 00:57:24

is to confirm, were unique and inapplicable.

00:57:26--> 00:57:40

This Divine Name or role, like all Divine Names contain attributes which are unattainable by alas creatures. So our belief in the divine attributes requires us to single out the law

00:57:41--> 00:57:53

with the full attributes of compassion and kindness, and consequently make him the only one, whom we should turn to ultimately for forgiveness for our sins.

00:57:54--> 00:58:19

Of course, those people whom we have wrong, we should seek their forgiveness first and foremost. But following that, we should also seek allies Russia, compassion and kindness, so as not to find our sins on the scales from the Day of Judgment. in a state of bankruptcy, as described by the prophets,

00:58:21--> 00:58:32

we should have pity for the sinful rather than scorn. Consequently, we should scrupulously avoid arrogance towards people engaged in sin,

00:58:33--> 00:58:36

as Who among us is without sin.

00:58:37--> 00:58:57

The province on Sunday I'm stressed the importance of avoiding this attitude, as it is natural and rather common for the new believers, whether converts or BORN AGAIN believers to look down on many of the common people as living in a habitual state of sin and disobedience.

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

Instead, the Dawa imperative requires us to advise them gently as, as the Lord's Divine Name or Rolf taught us. We should always remember Prophet Moses and Pharaoh and compare ourselves and those whom we are looking down on to Moses and Pharaoh. Indeed, we should teach according to the example of a Rolfe by thinking to ourselves, this lowly sinful person, may one day achieve the station of Rockford were sincere repentance

00:59:39--> 00:59:45

with their sincere repentance, and become far better and dear to a lot than we are.

00:59:47--> 00:59:51

The third principle is to have hope when there is a promise.

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

Divine Name or Rolf. A compassionate contains the promise of a loss eraser of our sins.

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

Which could and should consequently, create in us a real sense of gratitude and appreciation, especially since a lot has already informed us. And if we show gratitude, he will increase his forgiveness of assets.

01:00:17--> 01:00:19

Then shikara terminology then nickel accom.

01:00:21--> 01:00:26

If you are grateful, I will surely increase my favor on you.

01:00:28--> 01:00:58

So, it is for our own benefit to be grateful for the Wrath of Allah, his compassion and kindness. However, giving thanks shouldn't be done ritualistically. Even if accompanied by a ritual, like sudo the sugar for example, it should be done sincerely. If we are to reap any benefit from it, we should remember that a law does not need our gratitude in the least.

01:00:59--> 01:01:03

He does not benefit from our gratitude in any way.

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

Allah rove ordained gratitude for us as a means of purifying ourselves from our blinding addiction to the accumulation of worldly trappings and grows in gratitude.

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

Gratitude is our most basic means of growing closer to Allah.

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

By becoming more and more conscious of his kind and gentle ways, is how hand in our lives

01:01:34--> 01:01:37

become more and more grateful.

01:01:38--> 01:01:53

In the same way that we would be grateful to anyone in this life who overlooks our faults and mistakes, we need to recognize the extreme and intense forbearance of our rove towards us and return to Him.

01:01:54--> 01:02:17

After feeling a sense of remorse for our sins, without remorse, there is no repentance as they promised us and them informed us that remorse is the essence of repentance. So let us again remember, the best way of being thankful to our Rolf for his gentleness is to train ourselves to be kind, gentle and compassionate to others.

01:02:18--> 01:02:19

And the fourth

01:02:20--> 01:02:30

and last, of the principles of living in application of the Divine Names is to have fear where there's a warning.

01:02:31--> 01:02:34

And there's no obvious warnings in the Divine Name a role of

01:02:35--> 01:02:59

compassionate, the kind, as it is fundamentally a reminder and assurance of a law of kindness and gentleness with us throughout the various stages of our lives. The only danger which we need to fear is that of denying or rejecting a loss, unbounded kindness and mercy is raw and is wrong in our lives.

01:03:00--> 01:03:15

The main danger lies in our ungrateful arrogant belief, as many life coaches suggests, that if we believe strongly enough in ourselves, we can do anything you wish, and be anything we want to be.

01:03:17--> 01:03:22

Sounds nice. But the bottom line is, of course, that

01:03:25--> 01:03:51

it's not really about how much we believe in ourselves, but about the favors and bounties that allow for now Rahim generously grants us in spite of our frequent disregard and disbelief in him. So we should instead fear a state of negligence and haughty arrogance, which could easily burn our bridges to salvation in the life to God.

01:03:53--> 01:04:19

This arrogant state will also cause our current life to become gloomy and depressing. When we heartily turn away from Allah and deny his Rafa his blessings in our lives. And on the Day of Judgment, you will be far worse a lot worse than the same. Woman decree fine. Hello, my schatten banca we're not sure Oh, yo multiparameter.

01:04:21--> 01:04:31

And whoever turns away from my remembrance will have a depressing life. And I will gather him on the Day of Resurrection blind.

01:04:32--> 01:04:37

And he will say, My Lord, why have you raised me blind when I was one seeing

01:04:38--> 01:04:45

and Allah will reply to him say in that way, our science came to you and you forgot

01:04:46--> 01:04:47

and discarded them.

01:04:48--> 01:04:51

So today, you will be forgotten.

01:04:52--> 01:04:58

May Allah protect us from falling into such a cursed state of misguide and negligence

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

and then close

01:05:00--> 01:05:08

Closing will now call on a law using the Divine Name of Allah, Yarrow, Yarrow.

01:05:09--> 01:05:10

Yeah,

01:05:11--> 01:05:14

we know that you are compassionate,

01:05:15--> 01:05:18

and you're compassionate and kindness

01:05:20--> 01:05:21

encompasses all of creation.

01:05:23--> 01:05:43

So increase our hearts in mercy and pity for others to forgive our sins. Yeah, Allah. Help us to apply your example of compassion, and the example of your messenger in our own lives, by being kind and compassionate to those around us, even when they don't appreciate

01:05:44--> 01:05:48

yourself, open our hearts to be loving

01:05:50--> 01:05:56

and pitiful for the sinful and keep our minds and souls free from scorn of them.

01:05:57--> 01:06:02

Yeah, Allah, ya know, make us grateful. I mean,

01:06:03--> 01:06:08

a lot of people said, I want to lie about a cat.

01:06:10--> 01:06:14

With that, we end our second portion

01:06:15--> 01:06:16

of the course.

01:06:18--> 01:06:20

Module, or the course

01:06:22--> 01:06:33

class. And we're now going to move on to the third segment in which we answer or try to answer your questions.

01:06:36--> 01:06:39

We only have a few as time is short.

01:06:42--> 01:06:43

smilla

01:06:44--> 01:06:50

Faisal Ali asks, What if I'm doing some shift and I don't know this?

01:06:51--> 01:06:53

I don't know this ship.

01:06:54--> 01:06:55

And I die.

01:06:57--> 01:06:59

In that state, am I sinful?

01:07:00--> 01:07:12

Well, you're sinful and that you're committing a sin. However, if you didn't know that it was in fact shared and a sin, then Allah is most merciful.

01:07:14--> 01:07:18

There is an excuse in ignorance where

01:07:19--> 01:07:31

access to knowledge wasn't available, but where you deliberately avoided getting information about the deed. And you'll find some people doing that, when you tried to tell them what's right. It's a no, no, no, no, please don't do that.

01:07:32--> 01:07:47

Because as long as I don't know, I can keep on doing what I'm doing and a lot of want to punish me. It doesn't work like that. If you had ample opportunity to know and you choose not to know, then you will be held accountable.

01:07:49--> 01:07:51

Second question is from

01:07:53--> 01:07:54

Beauty.

01:07:55--> 01:08:05

does tahajjud mean you must sleep and wake up and pray or you can pray without going to sleep? Well, target is normally supposed to be after you wake up from sleep.

01:08:07--> 01:08:14

However, we know abubaker used to make tahajjud. After he shot after doing that, that's he made

01:08:17--> 01:08:19

he call it winter.

01:08:21--> 01:08:36

used to make winter which is what's done at the end of that, then for fear of not waking up and doing it. But the norm is to go to sleep and wake up as opposed to a sentiment the rest of the companions did. You know wake up, and then prey to?

01:08:38--> 01:08:47

The last question is, what do you think about addiction to cannabis? That is hashish or marijuana?

01:08:49--> 01:08:49

Is How

01:08:51--> 01:08:52

simple is that?

01:08:53--> 01:09:18

Question from our instagramers? Can I celebrate prophets birthday? Can I celebrate the prophet SAW Sam's birthday? The question we should ask ourself is did the prophet SAW Selim celebrate his birthday? This is why we celebrate his birthday. Did his companions close compares Abu Bakr, Omar smiley, etc. They celebrate his birthday. And the big answer that comes back is no

01:09:19--> 01:09:37

they didn't. So should we know of course, are we better than the Sahaba we have something which is a habit didn't know so we're going to know add this to the religion of the browser. Of course not acceptable. Common sense tells us

01:09:38--> 01:09:39

push it.

01:09:46--> 01:09:47

My battery is running low.

01:09:50--> 01:09:54

Because it wasn't plugged in properly.

01:09:57--> 01:09:59

Rashida asks

01:10:00--> 01:10:06

Is it a sin? If we don't complete reading the Quran every 30 days? No, it's not a sin.

01:10:09--> 01:10:15

Most companions are the process Allah never did that the vast majority never did.

01:10:18--> 01:10:26

Mohammed Asif as if we have bank interest credited in our account. How should we handle that interest, take it out

01:10:27--> 01:10:41

and give it away. not seeking any reward for it because there's no reward in it. It's already cursed. You're just getting it out of your premises out of your account out of your ownership.

01:10:43--> 01:10:44

Clean up your account.

01:10:46--> 01:10:57

inshallah, when that will close subhanak Aloma harmonica shadow Allah land and the stock Federica wanted to boil Lake

01:10:58--> 01:11:03

Baikal Africans Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
