thank you for joining us in the arcade the class. Today inshallah we'll start with the pillars of Eman.
And before we do that we want to go quickly through the definition of a man again,
man is not only a word to be said,
it has to include the belief of the heart. So if someone said, I am a believer, or I have a man, or I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah. This is one of the conditions but it's not enough. So if someone said, Amen is the saying, of the word of hate, we tell him this is not enough. Maybe it is enough in this world, because we judge people according to what we hear from them. But we don't know the reality of the things. It is left to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
What's the evidence that seeing only is not enough? The story of the hypocrites, it came with us in the Tafseer when Allah subhanaw taala testified that they true. They truly say we believe in Allah, but they don't own my home. They don't mean they are not believers. So saying is not enough. Also, the belief of the heart
is not enough as well. If someone said, I believe but he doesn't do anything. It is not enough. So what's the definition of Eman scholar said our environment is either way, and that's the definition of a man.
It is saying and action increases and it decreases our environment. It is the saying of the tongue and it is also the saying of the heart. Because even in your heart, there are things that you say like what?
liquor and the actions also the actions of the heart and the actions of the limbs. That's how you have a man by saying and by acting
according to the belief, so it is called ml The azido is only forwards. sayings and actions increase and decrease. That's the definition of a man according to Allison ojama.
Now we move to the pillars of a man. The first pillar, as we have in Hadith jabril Ali salam, and took me in a villa. The prophet SAW Selim told jabril Allah Sam to believe in Allah,
what constitutes the belief in Allah? How do you consider someone believes in Allah subhanaw taala? First you have to know
you have to admit and you have to be sure. Again, remember the conditions of Allah, Allah, Allah I asked you in the exam, what are the conditions of Allah, Allah, Allah, sincerity, knowledge, love, all these things should be included, that he is existed. You have to admit you have to know that Allah subhanaw taala has existed. Allah is not something
you imagine, or something. You think in your conscious Allah subhanaw taala is there
and He is the creator of everything, and he's the only one who deserves to be worshipped.
So if you admit, if you know, if you are sure
that Allah Subhana Allah is existed, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the creator Allah subhanaw taala is the only one to deserve to be worshipped. Then you are considered believer in this pillar, the belief in Allah subhanaw taala.
If one of them is missing, then you did not fulfill the belief in Allah subhanaw taala if you say Allah is the Creator, I know for sure Ally's the creator but you don't worship Allah Subhana Allah then you did not do it. You did not fulfill that pillar, you have to believe you have to admit and you have to worship Allah subhanaw taala alone
and to Him belong the Most Beautiful Names when he like a smile listener. He has no partner arrival.
Por la la salud. Let me do a mula Dola McCullough Hakuna had
all these things should be fulfilled.
So we say you should know farlam and now Allah Allah, Allah Allah, you should know that Allah is there. Who's Allah? Someone asked you, who's the one that you worship? describe him to me. What do you tell him?
Who's Allah someone what what are we talking about?
Who's Allah? Who's Allah? Where can I find him? If I went to a place I will find it.
Above the seventh heaven, so he is not with us now. He cannot
Not anything that you're doing. I'm telling you who's Allah, who's the one you worship? Someone asked you how to tell the people about Allah subhanaw taala this was a homework for the students, the previous batch so don't let me make it also homework for you. Tell me
He is with us and his knowledge is that's the only thing you know about Allah subhanaw taala that he's with us with his knowledge.
Circle across is a good description. Allah Allah Allah, Allah is one.
I could see very good I have to kursi Allahu La Ilaha Illa who will hire you? That the hoodoo Sonata? No, no, no, who is similar to my fellow men? All these are attributes of Allah subhanaw taala. It's a good description for Allah Hunter. So you need to tell the people first you need to know for yourself, who is the God that you worshiping? Just I am commanded to worship Allah and I worship You don't know
when you're worshiping.
And once you know you need to tell the others also, who's Allah subhanaw taala.
What's the meaning of Allah?
is it a noun or it is derived from another word? Allah hi Allah, Allah.
See ya. One of the scholars
of the Arabic grammar in his book, he said, when it came to the name, Allah, Allah, Allah afremov, the most known word, it's not derived from any other word.
And it was said that when he died, Allah subhanaw taala forgive him for this
alila is the God but alila again, it could be said to any god, whether it is fake, false or true. But Allah you cannot tell it to anyone except the true God. In Arabic, even the Christians, even the Jews, when they say Allah, they mean only the true gun.
But they could say a lot to any false god. So that's the beauty about this word. Allah subhanaw taala help Allahu Allahu Samia.
This is in sort of
Do you know any of I'm sorry, this is sort of Maria. Al Tallulah who's me and no one has the same name. No one is called a law except the throw that
Arabic Christians? Yes.
Know when they call Allah even the Arabs. They call Allah to Jesus. When they say Allah, they mean Allah, the father. But even if they said we meant by Allah, Jesus, it is wrong. They don't know.
Yes, but all of them, all of them when they say Allah, they mean the true God.
So that's the beauty about this name.
Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them.
So worship Him alone and be constant
and patient in his worship.
Or bousema to allow the Buddha who was probably a bad at health Allah mala who Samia This is again in Surah.
Allah Allah, Allah come from Morocco, from Miami to come to my
alma Shoraka Kumar, follow me in Delhi comerciais look at the beauty of this ayah because Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in several ayah
Most Beautiful Names and his attributes. This is in sort of the room. When you read the Quran, it's the book of Allah subhanaw taala so you need to know who's your Lord who's Allah subhanaw taala What did he do for us?
If you want to read about Allah subhanaw taala Surah Al anon, who were who are loving who he is, and he is and always in sorbitol anon, the same thing with with sort of the nun. They call it sort of the Nam the sort of the blessings because Allah subhanaw taala mentioned many things that he provided for human beings. So again, it is your job
When you read the if, you know, if someone asked you was your Lord, what do you worship? What did Allah subhanaw taala give to you? Why don't you worship Jesus,
you need to provide the answers people are waiting for you.
We will not go beyond this because the second year inshallah, the topic of the second year will be the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala. So, we will move quickly to the second pillar, which is belief in the angels,
in Arabic melodica
melodica is the plural
and the one is malloc
malloc malloc is derived from a Luca,
Luca means rissalah.
So, malloc basically very similar to messenger
and Luca is risala.
risala is what message, you see how the word is derived.
And Luca is reseller rissalah. His message melech is messenger, because they are messengers from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
That's the meaning of Malik.
Now, what constitutes the belief in angels? Now, if someone's told you how can I believe in the angels? What do you tell him?
How does someone become believer in the angels? We have two things. We have general belief and we have detailed belief.
The general belief is to believe in all the angels.
If someone asks you Do you believe in the angels? And you said yes, I believe in them. Why? Because they are mentioned in the Quran. That's the general belief. What about the detailed belief the detailed belief is the belief
in their names in their jobs, what each one did, believing that jabril Allah Salam is the angel who's responsible for the wife or the revelation, or the other information. This is the detailed belief, the general belief is to believe in all of them that they are created, they are angels, Allah subhanaw taala created them. And they are mentioned in the Quran.
Why Allah subhanaw taala created angels
because he needs them. does Allah subhanaw taala need the angels? No. So why he created them then?
well, Allah created the angels,
many lessons many reasons. Like
to worship Allah, just like he created human beings to worship Allah subhanaw taala that's it.
Allah created the human beings to worship Allah. Wouldn't that be enough
division of responsibility so Allah cannot take care of all the responsibilities.
to follow His commands again the same thing
they don't disobey His commands.
There are many to test us he creates a dangerous to test us What do you believe in them or not?
He created them to show us how
Allah subhanaw taala is organizing the universe is taking care of the universe. Many many lessons
Exactly. We will talk about this we'll talk about this there are many lessons
there are many is in the Quran. mentioned the belief of the angels.
Like what can you tell me some of the
many if you cannot remember anyone? What's the evidence that we have to believe in the angels?
Yeah, the last
very good. Yes.
coolin am Anna Bella Malaika to Yokota vivocity. What else that's the only one you know. Come on. You don't read the Quran. I mean, what do you do in your life? If the most
Important look, you don't read it.
What do you do?
Well, you have to remember.
Yes. Remember when Allah subhanaw taala told the angels, this mission, this is another mentioning for the angels, many is
Yeah, so that'll cut the penicillin Malaika to raffia.
Allah says in the Quran Allah Allah stuffie mineral melodica to sulan wa meanness Allah chooses messengers from angels and from mankind. So we know from this that one of the jobs of the angels is what?
To deliver the message, who was in charge of delivering the message. Julian ally Salam.
This is one of the jobs of the angels.
angels they are charged, of the reign
keepers of hell, and keepers of Paradise as well.
The prophets I seldom used to pray to Allah subhanaw taala Allah murrumbidgee bloodwise Rafi vomica Allah The Lord of gibreel is Raphael and Mika L. What's the significance of those three people? Those three angels jabril is the one who's responsible for the why.
This Rafi is the one who's responsible to blow the trumpet in the horn to blow the horn. And Mika is the one who's responsible for
which comes to the earth, so jabril li soleimani gives the revelation to the messengers with the revelation, the hearts are revived.
With the rain, the Earth is revived and becomes alive. And with the second blow, people will
will be resurrected.
So this is part of their jobs. Yes.
Yes, all the angels, not me. Not only jabril
the angel of death, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned him and mentioned them. Is it one angel or more than one Angel
uttanasana at a phone number farnum hollow Anima contemptor the owner mundo de la poubelle Luanda for simanim Kanaka fury.
When this approach is one of you.
Our angels take his soul, and they never fail in their duty.
Home for return.
Now remember here our angels, is it one angel or many angels?
many angels, that's what they say. So it's not the angel of death. It is the angels of death.
Angels of death.
The same thing with jabril it's not one jabril it's lots of jabril.
That's different. Well jabril li Salam he was sent to all the messengers, so not someone else, one at a time.
But here in the death, what if, like 10,000 people died at the same time? Is it one angel or many angels?
It's many angels.
Angel takes it out, but others
come with him. So he takes the souls right away from all of them at one time.
Who takes the cell from the human being?
Who causes the person to die?
Allah subhanaw taala.
So Allah is the one who causes the life to end. What about the job of the angels then what do they do?
The command from Allah subhanaw taala but they are the ones who perform the action. So is it one or more than one?
What do you think again? It is more than one. Well, the Angel of Death. He's like the chief
And then he has helpers. He has supporters. That's what the last month
because in another era pulito, a falcon molekule, multi level calibrachoa This is the sort of the surger. So which one is correct the angels of death or the angel of death?
But here it says angels and down it says Angel. So we have contradiction.
Is the S here added? Or it is missing here?
What do you think?
How both are correct? That's the question.
We have angels of death and we have Angel of Death. Again, as I said, the angel himself he could do this by himself. And he dedicated other helpers from the angels. So it's not only one
but the angel of death when it's mentioned by himself. It is one just like jabril Elisa
is the angel of death and there are angels of death
What's the name of the angel of death?
that's what you thought.
What is what does he mention as
it is in Hadith? Which Hadith?
Israel in no there is no Israel, Israel is jacobellis.
there is no any authentic hadith missions as I
there is no any IR in the Quran where it mentions the name. We have the name Mika l mentioned Mika. jabril. Jabra
is Rafi is mentioned in the Hadith of the messenger so I sell them but we don't have as right there is no evidence that the name is as right that's what people say. Maybe it's mentioned in the books of the people of Scripture, but not so that's why it's better not because he's mentioned in the Quran PolitiFact molecule mount
he was not given a name so that's his name Malakal mouth the Angel of Death
there is only one week narration that when Kathy rahimullah mentioned it and it is weak so it's not an evidence
so it's better to call him the angel of death
because there is no single authentic hadith says that his name is Ezra
What about the angels of Hellfire?
Kalia Malika Li Akbar Allah in Arabic. Malik is the
in charge. He's the only one or there are other angels
19 what is the evidence?
In Surah modesitt lattic to Allah tada Lovato nil Masha Allah Hi, Sasha 19 Is it 19 or 1900 19,000 19,000,019?
Allah knows best how much 19
these are guardians also the gods of Hellfire that's it or the other.
The prophet SAW Selim said that the
the Hellfire will be brought forth and the Day of Judgment
chains with every chain 70,000 angels
imagine the number
those are the angels that will bring Hellfire and that they have
70,000 times 70,000
the Hellfire itself is chained each one is taking one of the chain or on each each chain there are 70,000
These are only the angels that will bring Hellfire on the Day of Judgment. The angels have abated Malmo, you know based in Malmo
what solvated Mahmoud?
Yes, the house of Allah in heavens and on the top of the barrel?
What about the angels?
Every day 70,000 angels there circumambulate, the beta mammal, and they don't come back again until the day of judgment.
So you multiply how many days and on every day 70,000 angels
every day is 1000.

So there are angels that protect us.

and NASA at the angels that snatches the snatch the source of the disbelievers. When nazjatar arco won national party Nesta, what are the national
the angels of mercy that they take the soul of the believers smoothly?
There are two types of dangers you need to know the names of the source of the last use at least
one nazjatar article when he thought he was sad behati Sabha all these are types of the angels. You need to know them.
This is only part of the jobs of the angels and there are many types of the angels.
Their description now we're moving to another point their description
are they small, are they big?
We said that they are created from fire or from light
How tall how big
They vary. They are different.
What's the evidence?
Yes, this is an evidence that they are different and handled in life. There is some article up Jalil Malaika to Solon only.
Only agenda all of them they have wings. That's what the arrow indicates.
This is sort of part of the first day. All of them have wings. Some of them they have how many to some of them have three, some of them have four. Some of them have 600. Like, you realize that I'm the Chief of the angels.
So they are great. They are big. Imagine if 600 wings because the prophet SAW Selim said when he saw jabril in his net natural form, he covered the entire horizon the entire view, just covered by jabril. Elisa.
Do all angels have the same number? 600 rings? No. Again, some of them have to some of them have three. Some of them have for
the angels that carry the throne of philosophy. Hannah, Darla, do you know how big they are?
the prophet SAW Selim said I was allowed to describe one of the carriers of the throne between his earlobe and his shoulder, the distance of 500 years.
That's one Angel.
That's how big he was.
One of their characteristics is that
it bothers them what bothers the human beings.
The prophet SAW Selim said whoever ate garlic, he should not come to the mustard.
Why the angels also are distressed. They are harmed by what harms human beings.
Yeah, they don't like the batsman,
out of the angels able to have any shape they want.
Exactly this is an evidence that they can have the form of a man
like the heaven colorful Kelby gibreel Ali Salaam, he used to come in the form of one of the companions
of the Allah one. So they are able to have the forms. Are the jinn able to have the forms they want?
yes, obliques came in the form of a man also. The difference is the jinn. When they take the form, they resemble any form, they are killed, they die, while the angels can you kill them.
Can you kill the angels? No, you cannot.
It is Gene shaytaan killer.
Or the gene male? Are the angels males or females?
They don't have why.
Yeah, they call the angels females, the daughters of philosophy. And he did not deny that that means they are males.
They are not females. Does that mean they are males?
Yes, they don't have to have genders. They're not like human beings. It's different.
So the angels, they don't have gender. When you attribute again, this is part of the belief. So when you attribute something to the angels, you need to have an evidence. We don't have evidence that they are males. Yes, we have an evidence that they are not females. And actually that's why it's so
is an evidence that we cannot call the males because of luck and then the ones who say about them they are females without knowledge. So when you say they are males without knowledge
that means it's wrong also.
Now why we are discussing this why we are studying the belief in the angels? What's the advantage?
Part of the man so we have to believe in them. That's That's why we mentioned that that's all that's all what you get. What you will get to a new study when you believe in the angels.
bring you closer to Allah How?
You see his creation, and it is magnificent.
You read about it, you believe in it as if you see it.
Like what Give me an example?
Yes, when you learn that jabril Allah salam, one Angel and he has 600 wings.
It just to give it gives you only a small idea about the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala he created the entire universe and one of his creation, one Angel. He has 600 wings. So you learn the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala what else
to understand the relationship
to us. What do you mean by that children?
Yes, they pray for us the angels they love the believers. They seek forgiveness
and love in a woman who will love you sir behind me Hammurabi Marina be westown furon le Latina Amina.
They asked forgiveness for the believers.
When you learn that the angels they don't disobey Allah subhanaw taala. They are 24 seven worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. What will happen to you? You will increase your Eman. You want to be like them. So not to become arrogant. If you prayed to Rakhine the night then you say that's it. I am a good believer. I'm a good worshiper. Look at the angels. They are always in the state of worship Allah subhanaw taala. Yes.
Yes, very good. You are vigilant of what you are doing. Remember that always you have
two angels with you. They are recording everything. So you remember that Allah subhanaw taala is
aware of what you're doing. What else?
Yes. Yes. Again, it shows you that you have to be humbled, you have to remember that you are nothing in this world compared to the other creation.
Yes. Now, one thing we learned that the angels that are angels for this, there are angels that carry the throne of philosophy. There are angels that take the souls of the believers the souls of the disbelievers
gods of Paradise gods of hellfire.
They are perfectly organized.
It teaches us to be organized as well. When we follow the good system, the angels they have
organization, so we follow them. We should be organized. This is another lesson that we learn from belief in the angels.
Anything else that we could derive from the belief in the angels
okay with this inshallah will conclude our session. Others will allow Solomon and Mohammed
