This is the seventh lecture from the series believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala.
In light of the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And last lecture, we spoke about
knowing Allah subhanahu wa taala
which can be done two ways, way number one, reflecting upon his creation and pondering, and looking at what he created.
And by watching this and observing this, you will certainly conclude that the Creator
is far greater than the creations.
The second way to get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala
is to learn
and I mean by the text, the divine texts, whether it is in the Quran, or whether it is in the sound, authentic Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which directly speak about Allah
this though, they call it their Will Smith, he was the fact the names and the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
But before I begin,
and we already spoke about the importance of this, have
this do Wi Fi Casio mini muslimeen
a lot of Muslims went astray.
They made up their own conclusions. Once it comes to the divine texts.
They ended up some of them rejecting the attributes completely. mythical Jeremy and Alan
Midland Mattila in philosophy,
they say if you give Allah attributes, then you really make an Allah human being
rather than kalama dude.
Because the essence of Allah Subhana Allah is like, your essence.
Allah has a complete different essence which is totally different to our essence.
His divine essence is different.
And this is something that we sense even in when we speak,
you say the eye of ally in the eye of dog, the I have a cat, the eye of a bird
are these eyes alike?
They look alike. Why because the essence is different.
So you cannot reject the attributes for the fear that you're going to end up likening Allah to his creation.
Those we call them in macula
those who reject the attributes.
The other end of this we have l mu just sigma L Mu shabbiha l Mu mesilla.
Those who say the attributes of Allah is like the attributes of people.
So they take they did totally the opposite. The contrary to this
and then comes in a third group called al Qaeda.
They say, Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah subhanaw taala attributes, they function in a certain way and they identify this way haritaki
we do not know how Allah
The only one who knows how Allah is is Allah Subhana
Allah Allah, ke for law Illa Allah
we don't know.
But we believe that his attributes have a way of functioning, but how we are not aware of the exact details.
the scholars of the oma
the way that you understand the text,
which talks about Allah names and attributes with certain principles.
certain way to understand the text, the moment that you are stray, you go away from that principle, or these principles, you will find yourself just following the footsteps of those who got misguided before you.
And this is the subject matter of tonight. The principles which
Gods the understanding of the names and the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Just for you to follow me because this is a little bit academic. But it's important first of all, and we may have done this before, but one more time we do it.
We want to address the difference between the names and the attributes. You're always me hear me saying names attributes is more safer, it's more safer, it's more safer as Matt was referred as Matt was effect what is the difference between the two?
We'll address this first to begin with
we want to talk about the principles
regarding understanding the textual evidence
in new Foose a lotta had that unless Matt was the fact how do you understand it?
Can you use metaphoric
Or do you have to take the apparent meaning?
We have to talk about certain principles, which govern the way that you understand that textual evidence
then hopefully tonight, inshallah we'll be able to cover the names and we'll leave the attributes, Linda babbles, Masha, Allah, Annie, fi qlm kathiria. So hopefully we'll cover this tonight inshallah, just talking about the difference between the names and the attributes.
We want to talk about the principles which govern the way that you understand the textual evidence which talks about the names and the attributes and then talk about the principles regarding the names tonight and we will do the attributes the next lecture inshallah.
the difference between the name and the attribute of Allah let's give an example
and name of Allah, our rough man,
the attribute is what our Rama merci
the forgiver forgiveness.
the first difference between the name and the attribute that you can derive an attribute out of each name.
And actually some of the scholars said you can do more than one
box but you cannot derive any out of the attributes.
This is a key
We have an example the attributes which is the attributes of filmu cabela.
When the creation of Allah blocks,
Allah says I'd love to
wama Corolla so what attributes are we talking about you they attribute to what? blotting luck? Now can you derive a name out of that attribute?
Can you call Allah the latter?
No you can't.
So you must have a text that name the name
but the attributes are many you need to understand in the battle suffered the worst the attributes are many lynnie Allah subhanaw taala says wildfowl Allahumma
Masha, Allah does what he pleases. OVA then, once we talk about the attributes is what
we end up with two areas seafair two that was referred to fire
the attributes which talks about the Divine Essence of Allah subhanaw taala
al Hakim How do you suffered that
it describes the Divine Essence of Allah subhanaw taala. But there is another door called fire
the attributes pertaining to the actions and allows a lot of actions that is why the door of the attributes is far vaster than the needs because the names are confined to what to what is being mentioned.
The understand what
will do and good. You understand what I just said for you.
we say we cannot derive an attribute
I'm sorry, we cannot derive a name from the attribute. But you can derive attributes from the name so that's difference number one.
This is number two.
When you call upon Allah subhanho wa Taala Do you use the name or the attribute? What
what the name? will lay and smell will snare federal who be
to Allah belongs the Most Beautiful Names then call upon Allah using these names.
You don't say yeah, oh mercy la chakulia man oh merciful.
Yeah, you do not say oh power.
So you call upon Allah subhana wa tada With what? With the
ad with the name not with the attributes.
Any questions regarding this?
Again, something that I just mentioned.
Allah has names, when you use the name, it refers to Allah and what
an attribute of Allah.
So it refers to Allah and the attributes of Allah Subhana. Who What are
now principles concerning the textual evidence.
There are certain principles or rules which God the way that you understand and deal with the text which talks about the names and the attributes, number one, and we keep saying this over and over again and will find us saying it over and over again.
The names and the attributes must be established by Allah and His messenger.
So the names and the attributes must be weighed.
Coming from Wayne
poron and Sunnah.
There is no place for free thinking.
No place for analogy.
Because you have not seen Allah subhanaw taala and no one can
know there is anything that resembles Allah subhanho wa Taala of his creation so you can try to describe Allah. There is nothing similar to Allah subhanho wa Taala once it comes to his divine essence once it comes to his actions once it comes to his names and attributes.
So, Walla Walla de PUE I'm sorry wala Takuma la sala de la
Torre don't wallow here una de chez min el de Bhima.
you do not get to know you do not manage to know anything about Allah accept that which Allah subhana wa Taala given to you have knowledge about him.
What are you he Puna be a min l mi l Edina
meaning the Quran
and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu earlier said
that's Principle number one.
We find a for example,
these attributes which we must affirm.
Like his face a Lost Planet Allah has a face
to hands to eyes, his speech, his will, his liking, disliking His pleasure, His love, His anger, his hate, His ascension over the throne, his descent to the lower Heaven,
his coming to judge between his servants in the day for cleaning and other innumerous countless Lindemann culture
sofa, sofa initialism sofa bed sofa
an attribute pertaining to his actions. So piano matar
when there is a name and a tree or an attribute mentioned in the Quran or the sooner we must affirm it, we also negate
what he negated.
He said, I do not die. He says, I do not sleep, we must do what
we must negate any need any attribute which Allah subhanaw taala negated from himself with an addition.
We must affirm the opposite of that. So if I say Allah does not die, that means he is alive. What kind of life now? perfect life.
You understand? When I say that a slumber of sleep does not take Allah overtake Allah. That means he is what?
We affirm the opposite. He's all away, and he's not tired or like the Christians and the Jews say that Allah created the heavens and the earth in six days then he rested law we don't say that he's not he's awake and tired we affirm what the opposite perfect attribute to what we negated
example of attributes which must be negated due to the text
and affirm their opposites as perfect attributes, dying, sleeping, slumbering in ability, ignorance, oppression, heedlessness Amara buka feeling
of Bali moon.
Allah has not unaware of what the oppressors are doing.
oppression heedlessness and so forth.
Come here is a piece that is so important.
Listen carefully to this.
What about the things which Allah did not affirm nor negating?
We must do what
mahanakhon Latinas there are people who a they use this door to insult Allah.
Allah Allah en la and please forgive me. Allah I say this just for the sake of Allah doesn't dance.
Good luck. Now he's not getting what, but at the same time he's doing what
I love isn't the walk down the street? A lot of us who go to the club he's negating is he's half. But no, you only negate what have been
You don't assume
you will come up with your own form of negation. Or you do not affirm other things which you think is good like the Muslims now Good luck, ally. Mohandas, good luck Allah muhandis Allah is an engineer. Engineer, you have real tech pseudo did you get this from?
You I just have attribute ID na into Allah, where is the text?
So when there is
things which will not negated, no affirmed
about the F 170. And some of the one of the brother asked me
a lot of decisions in the lower heaven. When
when, the last third of the night, but if you really look at it, the last third of the night,
is really every time because according to the different the different time zones. The last third of the night is all the time.
Yeah, no, actually, what does he want to say that Allah is always weird? Don't
Don't say this.
fee. I want to give an example. But hopefully you will understand it.
An example of something that has not been negated,
I given that example before, but I'll give another example that I have here which
Allah subhanho wa Taala hears with two ears.
Allah subhanho wa Taala hears without ears.
Which of the two statements is correct?
both are false.
Because it's never been mentioned in the Quran, nor is it authentic. So now that Allah has two ears, but at the same time, I cannot negate it because possibly he has two ears. So my job is what?
Keep quiet, you understand? So, when Allah Subhana Allah does not affirm something.
When Allah subhanho wa Taala does not negate something are supposed to be
then voluntarily come up with your own work. Stop.
The other example that I wanted to share with you is a lot of the people
and you will find this in quotable As matter of fact Moto G.
does Allah has a
Look at this, we say to these brothers, this word has been has never been used in the Quran nor in the Sooners. Stay away from it.
But if you want an answer to this, Allah told us that he is in the heavens
over the earth once we say he's in the heavens will do not mean that he's above the skies.
We mean what highness, do?
Don't think that we're talking that Allah is within the dimensions, the physical dimensions of the heavens there is that, that the heavens is in one of his fingers and the earth is another another finger.
How not to delay when we say that I mean to manifest Santa. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked the female
slave for servant I'm sorry, the the little geria of
Sahabi Mali Abdul haq me salami called FSM ah.
So once we say for some Allah says, Allah is in the heavens above the Throne, we mean his work. So this is the direction if this is what you mean, but don't use the word What? Jihad
because it has nothing
another principle regarding the textual evidence, you must keep to the apparent meaning of the word.
understand it metaphorically.
And this is where the ashara fall in.

Now, we also need a second cliche for Rule number two, you must keep to the current meaning of the text
listen to this error the meanings are known to us while their specific details are not.
So the overall meaning of the attribute of the known is known as semia the hero
What is this? He hears is known but how
is not known to us?
Yeah, hahaha soon Allah La

nanofibrils Nando de we give up the fact that you can reach a detailed understanding of how Allah works.
Once it comes to his attributes, but we believe that Allah hears
in a way that I do know.
And you see, the other thing is that Allah did not command you to know.
Allah did not ask you to know.
He just asked you to believe in it. That's it.
In America, what the hell out of this world? Let me show Ilan is to Allah and Allah when he was asked that Allah ascends above the Throne, what did he say? La stua
