Salah will continue today with our study of super capacitor.
And yesterday we spoke about sort of the bacteria in general and the virtues of it. He spoke about the fact that
it is the greatest surah in the Quran and nothing like it was revealed in any of the previous books. And this is known as Quran and
of the essence of the book. So inshallah, today we want to begin discussing the actual verses.
Even when we think about reading, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given for each portion of the Quran, the call.
And even when we think about this name, we should remember that the meaning of the word is saying
the lines in Polish because of what we call an English versus an Arabic You will not refer to them as is a line of Fortune presented as a bait
to them as
referring to these portions of the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala gave them a name, which is different from what the Arabs were used to.
And as we know, the word is I think everyone's familiar with the word what that means. And if the linguistic meaning is the sign, and in other words, it is a sign of Allah subhana wa tada and the fact that this has come from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So every
every verse in the Quran is actually a kind of sign or demonstration that this has actually come from Alyssa.
And this is why we call them is
another meaning of
maybe some are related to this yummy is Gemma because the words are together in a group, they form a group they cannot be destroyed and taken apart. And this is another meaning of the word.
And going back to your
last week, if we could use the word I obviously it would be better.
Because I has a specific meaning to Alyssa Hannah with alcoholism, I ask for specific reason.
But to the word verse, as you said, there's verses in poetry but also, when they talk about portions of the Bible, they use the word verse. And that's why most scholars when they try to incorporate the meaning of Islamic terms, for example, I ever use the word verse because the separate passages of the Bible are known as verses, I do not have complete objection to using the word person, you'll hear me use the word verse on occasion. But
it will be better because every time we hear it should be assigned remind us that this is a sign that this is from Allah subhana wa tada and no one can match this.
So inshallah we want to begin our discussion with what we have written on the board here
about him. Lots of beginning Salah with these words.
And of course, if you let me refer to it is referred to as the best. So sometimes you'll hear me say that, but to the whole phrase that
the first question we have fast actually is, is
actually it is sort of the fact that
this is supposed to be a study of sort of society I'll begin with
might give you some clue as to what my conclusion might be,
is not the proper place to go into these issues and in detail, but actually, there's four opinions about the status of that district. And
one of the things about this, is that, of course other than and
this is where a silly man is quoting the Prophet Solomon I shouldn't in
the letter from Solomon, and this is
there's one opinion this is other than that phrase, obviously, which is part of the Puranas. So that's another issue that does not form a part of the Quran whatsoever.
In particular, the Quran reciters of Medina and bas are on a summary of that opinion.
A second opinion is that the best Mullah is a part of sort of the fact you have put in is not a part of any of the other sources of the product. It is part of sort of de facto only, but it is not a part of any other sort of
the third opinion is that
the less Miller is a verse of every sort of the product, with the exception of sort of photographers, if you look in any massage
You'll see that they've never put this in front of the sort of the tour. So there's one view that says that you can document for him is the beginning versus every sort of some sort of. So he look in some of the different terms I have for the numbering of the mythos. Some will begin with this game there will be verse number one, and some will begin after this.
So that's one reason why you find sometimes the differences.
The fourth opinion is that the victory lap is an independent verse of the Quran and does not form part of any surah
does an independent verse of the Quran, but it actually does not form part of any surah. And it was revealed with every surah to distinguish it from the other suitors, but actually it is not part of any.
And this opinion has been hearing from a
number of others as the ones that didn't seem you for example.
There is actually a piece of the process.
I wish the both of them said either karatsu will hum for Chrome
Rahim Allah is here.
And this has been the process William said when you read the hunt, when we say this miasma him for it is the Quran as we talked about last time, it is only because of civil society. And he is one of its verses.
So this idea, if it is authentic,
it is a clear text, right, no one can doubt the conclusions. And it comes from the study. And some of the scholars have had the full level at advanta has concluded that it is
however, the majority of the scholars have opinion it is not an authentic narration from the process.
But especially that last portion, there is actually a statement data, not a statement of the process. So it is actually more for an
opinion of the vast majority of the scholars of Hadith. And a lot of them it looks like it is the strongest opinion. So you're left with a question. As I said, I didn't want to discuss this in too much detail,
exactly the focus of what we want to discuss in these lectures. But you're left with these different opinions and it is difficult to determine what is the strong among them. I've tried to go through the different opinions and seeing all of the proofs that they have to offer. Personally, I'm not leaning strongly, for I'm leaning towards one but not as strong as I wish to be confident. It looks to me that it is a verse or a portion of reversal, very slow to accept.
So inshallah, we can begin with counting it as a part of the show.
By the way, we talked about last time that truth, in fact, is something that there's nothing in the Torah, there's nothing in the NGO, there's nothing in the forefront that was revealed. That is similar to sort of
the best Miller.
Also think for law alum that this is something specific for this formula. Some scholars mentioned that and if you go for example, to the books of the Jews and the Christian, you will not find something exactly like that.
So again, this is something that
God has given for this oma in particular.
So now we have to discuss what is the meaning of the phrase,
obviously, if you're going to be discussing the Quran,
and the Quran has been revealed in the Arabic language.
And the Arabic language is a living language. And it is not like the Hebrew Old Testament or the Aramaic, the isolation and probably spoke, all those are dead languages. People nowadays don't know the rules exactly those languages, how to speak those languages, so forth, they have now called modern Hebrew is different from the Hebrew
that comes in part to the preservation of this gene, is that Allah subhanaw taala has preserved not only the Quran, but the lesson and what God has preserved the language, which is a key to the understanding of the Quran. So when we discuss some of these verses of the Quran, and I know some of you especially those of you in the Arabic classes probably don't want to hear this, but you're going to have to sometimes get into a discussion related to the grammar and to the language of the text. Because the important point is, you know not to get bogged down in the details of the grammar but to see what is the conclusion what is the what is the point that you have to get the shell out of the
words of the Quran. So when we look at this straight off the bat
A phrase which every Muslim I'm sure knows this phrase. And I'm sure that every Muslim uses this phrase on different occasions.
When you study it, actually, you could call it a vague or ambiguous phrase.
Now, that is not necessarily a bad thing, as we'll show. And you can say something and vigorously or you can make it ambiguous. And maybe there's a reason why you made it ambiguous to make it more useful or more beneficial, as opposed to restricting it to something in particular. So this phrase, actually, that we repeat. So often, when you study it, from just a language point of view, you see that there's a number of questions that arise.
The first and the most obvious question
even if you take the translation of it into English as the most common translation in the name of a loving, compassionate Muslim, or something of that nature, is this a complete sentence,
and Joomla tool feeder.
So for something that mean, it has to be a complete sentence. That's why in Arabic, they call it something that has meaning to it has to be completions.
So one thing that is going on, and this verse is that there is something that we call in English, which is the ellipsis
in Arabic is called for a landmark.
And it's a one thing that is going on, there's not remember him for this to be actually a meaningful sentence, it means that some words have not been mentioned. And those words have to be assumed or they have to be determined within the grammar.
So just looking at the words Bismillahirrahmanirrahim should give us some thoughts, you will notice right away that this is not a complete sentence.
And that means if something is being implied, somebody is not being stated, but it has to be implied for it to be a meaningful expression. So that's the first question. What is going on with respect to this sense, what is being implied? And how are we supposed to understand
because as I said, in itself, this is a phrase, it is not a completion. So that is part of your, I guess you could call the preposition. So it's like a prepositional phrase, which is not a complete sentence.
The second point also, with respect to it is the meaning of the letter. But here.
What is the meaning of the letter?
Because God is harder for particle, the last time I counted is 20, different usages of the letter, or meanings of the letter.
So we have to figure out what is meant by by. And finally, also, to some extent, we can say even the word isn't, when you say Bismillah. What do you mean by saying?
So these are three points that this is, as I said, this is a common expression that every Muslim says, but how many have thought about what it means?
Or how many have even thought about doesn't have any meaning? Actually,
even if you saved in English, can you say in the name of the love of the confession immersible, you know, that there's something else going on, and there must be something else that's supposed to be there. So those are the three questions that we have to discuss. First, in order to get to the meaning of the verse NSL. As I said, an important thing is trying to get to the meaning and then from the meaning want to see what are the implications of the mean, and hopefully shall be spending way more time on the implications, then I will go on deriving the meaning, and if that's my hope.
So let us go back to the question of the ellipsis of a concept that takes place in this
Now and the Arabic language also, there's two facts, senses, what some of the textbooks call equational, sentences and verbal sentences. So you can have a sentence with a verb or you can have a sentence that doesn't have a verb in English. We don't have sentences without words doesn't work. But whenever you have sentences with a verb, there's no problem. So there's four possibilities that are going on with respect to this verse, to make it a verse with complete me there's four possibilities,
is missing either a verb or an essence. As we said, in Arabic, you can have complete meaningful sentences without words. So what this expression is missing is perhaps unknown. missing. You could put an issue in there and it could make complete sense or you could put a verb in there.
But the problem is also words is going to come pick it
Come at the beginning, or it can come at the end.
these are the four possibilities either a verb or noun is coming before the dish,
or a verb or noun is coming after.
And as I said, this is something that needs to be done for this expression to have complete meaning this is something that needs to be done.
Whether you're Arabs or not Arabic speaking, I don't know how many of you have thought about this, you know him and what does it mean? And how could it be a complete sentence? Well, if you're Arab, you probably wouldn't have a problem with it because you're familiar. This is not an unusual concept.
So for example, if you want to begin with the verb at the beginning,
you might say something like,
begin with the name of Alyssa hunter with that.
Or if he wants to begin with a noun, you might say, if today, this is my beginning is With the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala, something of that nature. So the mythos serene, and also the grammarians and they go into a long discussion about what is most likely the case, what is the best way and the most proper way from Arabic point of view, that one should understand this expression, we find them
and by the way, to put for example, the verb first,
or to put the noun afterwards, you can find evidence for that from the Quran and from that at the public facility. For example, Allah subhanaw taala and the verse first revelation This is called assertion and received Allah subhana wa tada is hit to the poet says Adam, cannot dismiss mirror up dictionary. So the first Revelation the processor received was the command to read in the name of your Lord. So that is evidence that some people might use the word comes first here is a verb, and it comes before the machine.
You also have an Iran for example. And the words of no Hello, hello kabu we have this new language raha tomasa, in Nairobi.
So here it says this Malay, Madeira, In the name of Allah, whether it be moving or at risk.
So here's two, four, you could put the missing portion after you bring the evidence in together and the different views of the grammarians.
And I think the strongest conclusion that the scholars have come up with and they came up with this for a number of reasons.
Is this what has been left out here and as I said, there's some ambiguity and distress. And as I said, also, this ambiguity doesn't necessarily mean a negative, there might be something that benefits the expression. The strongest view is probably that what has been left out is a verb after the expression.
This name comes first and then the verb.
Now the question is, what is the verb to come after. So the verb that comes after it is, whatever verb is relevant to the action that you're doing.
So for example, if you're going to eat you say, what you mean by that is Bismillah, the name of Allah subhanaw, taala I eat, or Bismillah I speak or whatever the case might be, from a grammatical point of view and also from meaning point of view. This is the strongest interpretation and among the modern ama who've gone through the presentations earlier. This is the interpretation that most of them prefer, and they've been the evidence in from the Quran. So, some of the benefits of this is when you understand the bismi left to be first, can you beginning with the name of Allah subhana wa Tada. So you begin with his name, which is proper etiquette.
And also when you put to the verb afterwards, this implies for the known as it hasit, any old inquisitiveness and if you put the verb afterwards, if you say like, in the name of Allah, I eat or I am eating or in the name of ally, I'm driving, whatever the case might be.
When you put the verb afterwards and this expression comes first, as I said, this implies a kind of puzzle, meaning only in the name of Alyssa Henry, only by the name of Allah subhanaw taala Am I doing this act?
Only nimbleness and habitat Am I doing to say no one else is involved. Nobody else can be possibly. What do you say for example, I am beginning in the name of Allah. If you put the robustness doesn't give that same application. It could begin a new line in the name of other things that we've talked about nowadays prefer to say things in the name of other things.
The conclusion that says especially among the contemporary or our writing to students of worth is worth this expression means, as you said, Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim is not a complete meaningful sentence in itself, something has been left out or the goal in English the ellipsis or in Arabic either a mod or other.
And as I said, there is a great benefits to leaving this up because this leaves now this expression open to views on your any occasion any action
that he wants to do, you can invoke this expression.
And inshallah, when we talk more about what is the meaning exactly, we'll see how that is very important.
So the verb as we said, we understand it to come afterwards. And another implication of that is this means also that you are doing the acts With the name of Allah, and all it was the name of Allah, and no one else being invoked no one else being to vote.
So, just with respect to the first question of how to make this a complete sentence, because it is a phrase, it is not a completion. And as I said, this is something normally Arabic language in listening. If you find this in the Quran, and all of a sudden, where did this come from? Here, the Quran was revealed in the language of the artist and the language of the ears of that time. And so this was not a problem for them. Sometimes you find solutions to problems that later people don't understand. But in general, the usage of the Arabic language was something clear to those people that this was using their language.
So when we say Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, you are actually saying that in the name of ally, I'm doing such and such and only In the name of Allah.
Now, what exactly do we mean by In the name of Allah? And what is the meaning here?
This goes back to the question of what is the meaning of
And as I said, there are 20 at least the last time I tried to talk on this 20 different kinds of meanings. Here most likely is one of two cases, most likely basically only making one or two cases here.
This one is called barista.
And the other one is called the Sahaba barista Hannah.
If you look in the dictionary, what would be the most common definition that they would give for?
What do you think?
So, what we mean here by the Sahaba has kind of different connotations to it, one of the connotations means to seek closeness or yearning
for companionship or connection.
And in fact, the most common meaning if you were to change the
verb masaba was another word every other word would be Ma, which means
so what would that mean? In this case here, if you are saying With the name of Allah, so basically, that's I guess how we'd have to translate it. If we say that suppose
With the name of Allah, I am speaking, I am writing I'm eating.
The implication there is if you are invoking the name of God, to get blessing from Allah subhanaw taala you are beginning with the name almost
to get the blessings from us and
this is if you understand about here team with
the other possible many hairs above
the scanner. And in the scanner, what that means is to seek help.
So there if you want to translate that into English, there will not be in the name of love. Because they're really what it means with the help of the name will lay me by the side I hear you are seeking a listen handle without his hope.
So we were committed to translate it, I am doing this seeking the help of Allah subhanaw taala and since we're putting the verb afterwards it means seeking only the help of others.
This is the list
so you could translate into English With the name of Allah subhanaw taala we're seeking the blessing from Allah subhana wa tada or with the help or seeking the help of Alicia handler tada I am doing some research. Now in reality, as many scholars pointed out, it is very possible that both of them on both of them are genuine mentioning the name Allah subhanaw taala to start your action by the name of Allah subhanaw taala seeking the blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala for that act, and the support and the help. So therefore it is kind of a combination of the two you're seeking the blessing from Allah subhanaw taala
Allah, and you are also seeking the help of God.
So as we'll talk about later, inshallah, one of the things you should think about when you mentioned this, he left, and we mentioned it often, sometimes without even thinking much about what we're saying, but he should be recalling that really when you say this mean that homeowner him You are virtually making a garage, you're seeking the health and the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the action that you're doing,
just by these few words that we say it's so easy to work from your virtue of making a job, but when you make a dries, and also, your heart should be a sensor, and you shouldn't just throw out words that you're not thinking about what they mean.
So this is the meaning here.
As I said, there's also some discussion with respect to this and what the remaining isn't right here. We won't worry about that, and also we can move on. So we have this expression,
in which we are both saying that towards the name of Allah, so hoping for blessings from Allah subhanaw taala. And seeking his help,
I am doing certain subjects and only with his name and only seeking is.
Now when you think about all the different circumstances in which we as Muslims have been ordered by Allah subhanaw taala or guided by Allah subhana wa Taala to see these expressions, either this
or this Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, the whole expression for maybe we could even say conclusively this middle because if you look at all the different occasions in which we have been ordered, or guided to, or instructed to say these words, you can see that this expression is something that should be part of our life in almost order to save virtually every action that we do.
And if for example, obviously, when you are reading the Koran,
especially if you're reading sorts of it, or you're reading from the beginning of the surah, especially when you're reading from the beginning with the sword artist that you begin with this,
of course, is the reading of the Quran, this is our source
of spiritual knowledge, and you could call it our spiritual nourishment. Before we try to get that spiritual knowledge, we mentioned the name of Allah subhana wa Tada.
And we mentioned him and this wave.
This is how we begin reading the Koran, how we begin reading.
And this has some implications in itself. Because we are trying to get guidance from the
throat trying to get guidance from what you're eating. And this expression that we said especially the way we have interpreted here, one of the implications of this expression is the importance of the clause.
And because you are beginning only In the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala and seeking the help only.
So if you start reading With this in mind, emphasizing the reading the sort of from the beginning because if you're reading in the Middle Ages, this readability language if you don't do this,
but if you are really looking around, for example alpaca.
Let's see like in the salon, we talked a lot about this a lot. So let's go back to the slides you ordered to begin with,
especially if you conclude it is part of the photo.
As soon as you start reading the idea that you have to have a clause and sincerity and purity to Allah subhanaw taala and all those random Watada this should already be in your heart as you start reading. And this of course is one of the keys to get inshallah the guidance from the Quran.
Before you eat to drink.
Before you need to drink, we know
that you should mention the name all the time with that, as opposed to them when you told them boy with some milk. And you mentioned the name all the time before you start eating. So your physical north node also should be blessed with and seeking the help from
some people who said this will give you what
I've said without going into too much detail
on any this final revelation is comprised of encompasses all the guidance that is needed for mankind and all the previous revelations. And
as we said is all the details so it is kind of summarizing all the guidance that the Quran has. And then they say that Bismillah Ar Rahman AR and some say this
Buddha can stain actually these two are very close in meaning if you understand certainly and he was summarizes
So all the actions that you do, if you want spiritual nourishment, doing the plan you should begin with.
Because you need a lot of help, and you need a blessing to achieve what it is you want to
see when we say this, as I said, it is kind of a job, we should realize that when we say it, as soon as he said, we should realize that we need a lot of help. And we want a little blessing to accomplish what we're going to do.
When you're going hunting, or when you're slaughtering an animal, again, another source of physical nourishment. Because the system has taught us to say this in the lab or the sunlight lower, but
they don't say the whole thing because slaughtering an animal you don't emphasize that. In that particular case,
when you want to make a solution, Moodle,
Moodle is one of the few steps
to the active flow. And this is one of the key steps again to your spiritual purification process. I tell them said Loverboy, Lehman led me up to this memorial Moriarty, the process of them said there is no rule for the one who did not mention the name of Allah subhanaw taala.
So before you make what you're supposed to say,
and the difference, whether this is obligatory tonight, we'll get into that debate. But in any case, the false assumption, there's no those who are the ones who are missing the point. So obviously, before we begin, which is your first, what are your first steps in this spiritual purification, you should mention the name of God
when making any when trying to heal someone.
Because we know there's two kinds of diseases as a spiritual diseases in their physical diseases. For the spiritual diseases, you have to start with,
for the physical diseases that we see in the headache and processing them. You find the policy tell him what he made up, I began with the name Well, let
in the name all the data I'm making up I'm giving you this jar. So that will help you.
When you go to see, which is a great and important act that you have to perform, you cannot live without sleep. So it is another part of what you need in this life. When you go to sleep. The first thing that you say in the job, again, is not exactly this lab, but the moon is similar to sneaker
in your name, Lord, the Speaker of the action is the new name, my lord.
At the time of having sexual intercourse between spouses,
which is a source of procreation, the continuation of mankind, the first thing that you should say Bismillah Allah subhanaw taala to protect you, and protect your offspring.
In general in the mornings, and in the late afternoons, the public
has ordered us so as good as they can think. That is way to benefit, great reward in remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So here's number one Have you have to process them and send them and I've done a full episode
on the Nayla, the feline leukemia virus, he
said that, if someone says that three times in the morning and in the living he says, In the Name of Allah, the One that home Loving can harm someone that with his name and
then the person will not be on the server.
When leaving or entering your house, you begin with additional law when entering the market.
When you are writing something and taking a means of transport, to begin with Bismillah at night, you're supposed to cover your vessels you're drinking things, not leave them open when you come to them and say Bismillah when removing your clothing to protect you from psycho agenda you say Bismillah. Even upon tripping or having your animal trip, or stumble, you say this.
And the final stage before the after, when putting someone in the game. You save this you lay out a syllogism when you put the person in the game is final things I love would be and the benefit is I love you.
So, all these are signs of how important this expression is. And yesterday we talked about sort of the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala has ordered us to repeat the Surah At least 17 times again. He was lying over and over again. We're supposed to say
me as I said, Sometimes they'll complete sometimes dismiss
over and over again. Yes.
Even though we say this expression
So often, how many times have we gone? To find out exactly what it means? And what does it mean when we say Bismillah?
And can you imagine someone going through this whole life thing, this expression, whether he's Arab or not, doesn't matter, and he really doesn't know what she means by
that he might have maybe some general ideas, almost everyone should have some general was the name of Allah. But he doesn't understand what's the goal of it, and what effect you should have on it. Those things are nothing is narrow, just
there's a head, it's actually the meaning is that any important matter that does not begin with this
is a cut off from dozens of work, but
that, so this is the statement.
This is what we make, in addition,
completely or just the first part.
So now it becomes a question is, what is the point of it? Or what are some of the benefits that could result from it?
Now obviously, it is a statement of time, this is a statement to mention Allah subhanaw taala, remembering Allah subhana wa Taala. So actually, anything you can say about decoding the importance of decoding the benefits of decoder, you can apply to this. But that will take us far off the topic that you want to concentrate on the discipline itself.
First of all, let's talk about the relationship between the addition and the fact that these words had been put at the beginning of Silicon Valley, which is the beginning of the Quran. And what is the significance of that?
How you see the main goal, if you want to talk about one main goal of the Quran,
with a specific individual, the one main goal is to bring the person closer to Allah
and guide him to become closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala, and one of the servants of Allah subhanaw taala. So by beginning with this phrase,
it should, again as the person is conscious of what it means if he just says it without thinking about what it means, then of course, we may not have this effect, but just saying this phrase is the first step in getting closer to Allah.
And in fact, in this phrase, as we said, since is that concept of a hustler exclusive this you're really cutting off all relationship to any other kind of feels good because you're seeking the blessings of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala and seeking the help oil the planet with that. So in this phase alone, you're already cutting yourself off from any kind of false gods. So your mind is already moving from any kind of disbelief any kind of shook to the terrain to the belief in Allah subhana wa Tada.
Now, as we said,
the bat here is both by Astana and God.
But the fact that the Quran the revelation from Allah Subhana, WA, tada begins with this letter, which is less than
any, from the first letter that you read the Koran, you are defining your position with respect to
the first letter,
you're defining work as the relationship between you, and also how
you're defining the fact that data is the source of blessings, and the source of help. And you cannot get guidance, obviously. And if you're sorting through the body, to get guidance, so you're actually seeing like,
anything online trying to get guide.
So if you're trying to get the guidance from the Quran, you already showing the already stating your relationship to others that also handle it. Guile is the source of help to salsa lessons. And as we see in Silicon Valley, obviously, Alicia handler, is the source of guidance.
So you are declaring in this statement, when you're reading the words of Allah subhanho, wa Taala, you are actually declaring in front of all of our Canada, you are declaring your inability, your lack of power. And first of all, this kind of data can be turned into all of that from the first letter.
And it was
just a small.
I mean, if you are really conscious of what you're saying, as I said, if you say it without thinking about it, if you've never thought about even what this
means, if you never went to the gym if you tried to benefit from what they said, maybe none of this will come to mind for you. All that you realize that from the first letter you read as a brand, you are declaring What is your relationship with this pixel on this network that that ally is alive.
Here's the law and you are helpless.
The hose neither will listen.
And without data you cannot succeed.
So let's assume that at the beginning of the book,
so when you begin reading in this way from being ever put on with him, and you realize what it means you're already turning to Allah.
Because you cannot say this phrase, and mean it without already doing an act of learning to listen. And so if you're turning soloists, and we're counting, that means there's a lot less coming to you.
So you are beginning the reading of his guidance, taking one step towards him, and inshallah he is coming to you with more guidance.
But again, all of this has to be with, and you also understand what you're saying.
As soon as you say this, you should have kind of a feeling overcome this, you know, that you are now turning to
you're not just invoking his name as if it's just any, as I said, it is in reality, a kind of draw towards Allah subhana wa Tada.
And, in general, when we think about this, will you say this, you know, anytime you see it on your annual occasions,
it should revive in your should Awaken your heart to the fact that the actions you're doing have a consequence to them, they have a purpose to them. And if you've not say this, to him In the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala, and saying, you're doing this act, Sonia, seeking the approval of God and His blessings. And then you think that he could possibly think that jack has no consequences, and it is meaningless.
For example, the performance of the two formulas is life, they do things as if there's nothing in the actions that they do.
And it is no longer in results. And that's going to really happen for me know that every action we do is a consequence of this we're going to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala and align with God as He is going to be pleased with that act. Also, Natal is not going to be pleased.
So when we invoke the name or muslin workout and remember to invoke the name of
this immediately should change our consciousness.
Even if it is a some kind of mundane act to something
less important somebody
actually, listening should develop no Muslim, the quality of their son
and son has you know, different levels of meaning to one of the levels of meaning of it is that you try to do your act to be that you're performing in the best way possible.
Remember, when you make your ads on this channel, it is also bigotry upon you to fall down because you don't just play God
give me a child and you don't even take the steps to get married and have a wife and so forth and just expect cronyism to occur out of nowhere even if you're going to go on he has to take some steps to to close.
you should also try to follow this by because this may drive when you sit at home and expect everything to come to you. So when you say this you that
you are hoping for the blessings of the lesson and without any help or lesson how to attack. So now you have evolved the name of Allah subhana wa tada
you have involved Allah subhana wa tada and action that you're doing. So therefore you have to make sure that you do your best to make that action, the best you can make. Because now you have the name of Allah subhanho
wa Taala to bless if you want the list will help you if you take the steps to do it properly, Allah subhanho wa Taala will bless you and we'll follow the steps.
So in anything really that the Muslim does,
when it does his work or study and so forth. Before he does his accent training he knows to mention the name Ola.
And all these different editorial will try to mention a listener.
And so when he mentions electromagnetic data that's going to have an effect on him on how he tries to do the job.
And especially when it comes to religious practice, because now if you invoke Allah subhanaw taala means and you're doing something related to the gene, then it is responsible upon you to fulfill that job in the best possible way. Whether
This is an active, I've added the slot. The first thing, whatever the will do in the making, whether it is inactive down, if you're going to give a lecture, and if you're going to give a lecture and you begin your preparation, you should begin with this.
And you should try to make sure that you take the steps to do that lecture that job or that customer or that hospital, whatever the case might be. And the best way possible.
Especially since as I said, it is something related to elicit.
Obviously, if you remember him, as we said, this
can be the three will do things only in the name of data. So we are always reminded over and over again, as we go through our actions, more reminded of being free of shift.
We have to keep our minds and our actions.
Because we're always missing this new love. And this implies that we believe only in the middle.
Unfortunately, even among Muslims, you will hear people say for example, in the name of the people, or the name of the freedom, and the name of the nation, the country, whatever in the name of the king.
Among the Christians, you'll find, for example, the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
I actually heard when Michelle just became a
Muslim, he's well known speaker said he went into a church. And this is, by the way, an example of taking the Islamic substitute to an extreme. Everyone says, Oh, that must be Islamic substitute for everything and they're looking for. So he said, he went into a church and he saw in the name of the Father, the Son, the Holy Ghost, he said, the Islamic equivalent to that.
And he said, he concluded,
and he was filled with sugar, and the other $100.
Obviously, before you do any act, if you mentioned the name or this $100,
then that remembering of Allah subhanho wa Taala also should make you think about whether or not the act that you're going to do
again, as many as
Vicar can be very powerful.
For it can be loving
from the oma, they gave the example of a sword,
the old swords,
especially in the Middle East, all sorts of very heavy.
So if you don't have the strength to pick it up, and to use it, it is basically decoration and the guy who's gonna kill you can look at this and make sure he gets, but it's not going to help him much. But if you have the strength to use it, and you know how to use it, then it becomes a strong word.
And so Darla said Victor is similar to that.
If you are making Vicar really meaning it and knowing what you're saying, this will have an effect on you. And it will bring about inshallah, towards advocate as opposed to being
hurt if you forget to mention the name or mishandled data, or your machine and you don't even know what it means. Or you don't even care what it means. But you've been trained to serve us universities.
Tell us about Kansas magazine.
And what do you think what affects that is going to help
you learn even, and this is one of the great blessings of Becker. Even sometimes, when you're doing it just habitually, and not even thinking about it. Sometimes it can have an effect on you
know, you say Bismillah, and you do it just all the time you do it just before you eat, you say Bismillah before you drink, you see this, before you do this as a person. Sometimes even though here's the thing, it's habitually, it can still have an effect.
And if you're going to do something, how are you just automatically say,
for example, someone's going to grab a beer and you just automatically use me last night to make them feel.
Okay, I will drink this beer this time.
So, the goal is inshallah, when you say Bismillah, you understand what you're saying and you're saying it to the whole bit or have the proper for Tanya. But at least from the love you train yourself to say Bismillah sometimes it can have an effect upon you even sometimes when your heart is not fully cognizant of what you're saying.
When you mentioned this earlier, it is the first step
to thinking about vaccines if you're doing whether or not it is good, sounds permissible or not and so forth.
And also inshallah, this is a key to the help from Allah subhanaw taala. As we said, garlic
seeking the help.
So if you begin with this phrase and in your heart, you are really seeking the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you are invoking Allah subhanho wa Taala by these names
which we'll talk about later. So Allah Allah, Allah will come to you.
So it is not only a means of Salah distinguishing or thinking about whether or not the action that you're going to do is correct or not, but also inshallah it is a means by which Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to help you in that act. And one of the things of this bill, especially in this day and age, or so many civilizations have become so materialistic.
One of the things of this bill can remembering to mention the name of God
is that it is a constant reminder that this world is not simply a mechanical materialistic existence.
Nowadays, the kuffar the way they look at the world
is that look, this is just like a machine.
We have forces of nature, things happen because of this things happen because of that. And you have no concept in their life that there is a being that there is a God and all powerful being that actually everything that takes place he's involved in
every day, every aspect, every pollution handler, is involved in Nokia COVID, shipped by the will of Allah. So there's no such thing as this is just the material world. If I do a automatically the reaction is going to be B.
Even in the
laboratory settings, that doesn't always work out what about the rule? Allison, I know that it can make any plan go straight.
So the mentioning of this
and this constant reminder, what
is a great reminder that Alyssa handler data is involved in this creation. You know, there's a group of philosophers are called to do
they cannot get beyond the fact Muslim especially this was a couple of centuries ago, they cannot get beyond the fact that there must be a creator. So they said, Okay, there is a creator. But that creator was like someone who created a watch, he just put it in motion and then sat back and didn't have anything else to do with it.
So they are forced to admit the other must be created. But they don't want to say that the Creator is still involved in this creation.
So we go through the life not realizing that Allah subhanho wa Taala is involved in everything.
And from a Muslim perspective, this means also the plan of God is always there to help if you need his help.
And to accomplish anything, you know that Allah subhanaw taala is going to have to be there to help. So you reliance upon Allah subhana wa tada becomes much greater. And this is a very important aspect of things.
Very important aspect.
And we'll talk about later Yep. And now Buddha, you're gonna say assign
anyone wish to be a helicopter, and you're seeking help him to fulfill Allah, this is a key aspect.
For this addition in that Canyon, remembering it and making it remind you that Allah subhanaw taala is involved.
Because of everything was fixed, and Allah was involved with the point of invoking
my engine on the car, everything is just mechanical. Why should I say Bismillah of all is nothing.
But Allah is involved. And that's why we mentioned, we're always reminded that all of us is involved,
among other things, and we do not then become completely materialistic, and just look at the material things of this world. And also the same time, we always know that all this data can be there as a source of help. And it's also a reminder that, as I alluded to before, that there's more to this creation that we are in than just what you've seen.
And it is more to this creation.
We have been created with a purpose with a role. And so as we do our actions, we always have that in mind that you have this purpose and role in our lives.
And especially if we invoke the entire thing,
then, not only are we remembering that Allah subhanho wa Taala is involved in this rule that we're seeking yourself but also we are reminding ourselves that he is a human and he is
the most common expression or one of the most common expressions that Muslims say is, especially
as the scholars they say it is a kind of book for him and for him
Because when you say Bismillah, In the name of Allah,
Allah, as we'll talk about is the name that encompasses all all all of our
including the fact that he is one wise power over all sins. And he is the one who rewards and the one who punishes.
So when you mentioned that game, the first thing that comes to your mind, is the greatness of all the data, which will immediately if you really think about it, put the fear of him into and the fear of your shortcomings with respect to Allah subhanaw taala the sins that you've committed for this character almost on autopilot. So online books, many things, just named the lone wolf many things but mostly in a vulnerable kind of on any kind of fear. Well, that's
what we are talking the same time to say,
this is a kind of,
and it is we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is compassionate and merciful as we do our acts. And if you have some shortcoming in those acts, we are reminded of the fact that without his confession, and most of all, that Allah subhanaw taala shall overlook their shortcomings and we have an x when we try to do an action and we invoke the name of Allah subhana wa Tada. We can also extend it and also includes learning.
So that inshallah Allah subhanaw taala was by His mercy, and by His grace extends itself upon us in doing those actions.
I think I'll mention one last point, related to the effects of this.
And that is that when you say Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim and you understand it properly, it immediately develops a kind of appreciation for Allah subhana wa tada and gratitude towards Allah subhanaw taala.
And immediately when you just think of the phrase Bismillah and what that means what you are blind buy, man are Rahim. And immediately it should be some kind of gratitude towards Allah subhana wa tada for his mercy for his grace upon us and so forth. And the fact that he is the one who comes to our help, and just might have a relationship because many of them are when they discuss the Quran, they try to discuss the relationship between each verses.
If you think about Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, one of the things that will come out of your mouth
or at least
he is the one that helps us get out of his motion, Grace helps us even more and benefits us even more. So you say 100
but one thing that I wanted to mention about this is that
when you're constantly reminded of this expression, and as we said it comes at the beginning of every surah even when you begin like writing or speeches or talks about Omaha, it comes up on the other class, it begins with
this expression is giving you a concept or an understanding about the lesson handling time.
And you have the name of Allah.
This is giving you an understanding of Allah subhana wa Tada. And as I was alluding to before, it is an understanding which is filled with love and appreciation. And I'm looking forward to almost Nanos, Allah. So if this is the expression that you say over and over again, remind yourself over and over again, which would be then your response, Tabatha listen was out and is that important?
And you make this expression over and over again. And if you really think about it, what would be your thoughts about
shall are your thoughts are going to be good thoughts about you'll be hoping for his mercy and realizing is gone. So my question was, is that important
for the public?
As mentioned in headaches, placebo Mo, Salah, and Dr. Beebe when Mr.
Murphy the couple who
were in the clinic, female, a female I'm
to bring her up today the
way that I'm
done doing attorney am she who
has told us that I'll listen and what God has said
and given the abuse I am has my arms, hosted me or expects of me. So this
is always you know, you're always reminded of that, inshallah, you will have the right
Thoughts the right attitude towards Allah subhana wa tada and that in itself will benefit you. And when you mentioned that this nama Mohammed who said that is the kind of vigor so when you mentioned it if you mentioned it to yourself all the time with Allah
and if you mentioned it in the crowd, then I'll look around without I mentioned this in a gathering better than the ones that you mentioned. And as we said this misdemeanor hammer hammer should imply a kind of turning towards Allah subhana wa Tada. So if you chose Allah subhana wa tada like this amount, Allah subhana wa tada turns towards you in longer amounts of return shows illustrated without walking when he comes to you at the store in case all of this, all of this convenience fell apart and the results and the benefits of this
food sled one author to write, that one cannot imagine more appropriate words and meanings meaningfully be uttered before starting any good work. Now, this is as I said at the beginning, this is a great blessing from Allah subhanaw taala that he's given us this expression, as rescorla said that this is something that God did not give to the woman and it is up to us inshallah, to benefit from it to learn from it.
