Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Welcome back. 200. Tonight, I always like to thank both Allie Coleman in the first segment for giving us the news in such a professional way. So thank you very much for the rally. And you guys, thank you for staying tuned into. We're off here after I'm gone to an all new series if we can say that every Tuesday night on this program. Tonight, we're joined by a very special guest who is going to be speaking about an important topic, really any central topic. Something's very important in the life of every Muslim, and that is how do we get to know a law? How do we get to know the Creator, our sustainer, the one who created us, who sustains

00:00:39--> 00:00:50

us by through his names and attributes. And this is going to be a continued series with our beloved Sheikh crema who's as you've seen him on Akita matters in many, many other programs. He was with us here on Ramadan, live,

00:00:51--> 00:01:26

this, this last Ramadan, and we're very, very pleased to have him back every Tuesday night, on this program. In this episode tonight, Kareem is going to kind of lay out the framework going forward about this topic, the names and attributes of Allah, and we're going to be teaching them to us as a means of getting closer to Allah and to to increasing our spirituality and our connection to Allah in the correct and incorrect ways to do that. You'll also not only teach us the correct ways, but also clarify some very common misconceptions regarding the 99 Names of Allah, or the 99. Are those are those posters that we see in many Muslim houses? Correct that say the 99 Names of Allah, he'll

00:01:26--> 00:01:37

be speaking about that as well. You guys, we're gonna take a quick look at the report. And we'll be right back with Shea cream, Abu j, discussing the names and attributes of Allah as a means of getting closer to him. So stay tuned for more.

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

He said,

00:01:46--> 00:01:57

the sun, which is the smallest star in our galaxy, it's the smallest one in our galaxy. And our galaxy is one of billions. Did you hear that? One of billions.

00:01:59--> 00:02:05

The sun that is millions of times bigger than the Earth. And it's the smallest star.

00:02:06--> 00:02:21

They say if one second, one second, was given to nine every single star that's in our galaxy, not the other ones, just in our galaxy. And he said you will need 600 trillion years and he still wouldn't name them all.

00:02:22--> 00:02:30

And that's in our galaxy. And now galaxy is one of millions and millions that's out there. And all of this is in the first heavens.

00:02:33--> 00:02:56

All of this is in the first heavens. He says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We've heard this many times my brothers, but where is the heart? Where is the how when you stand before you Allah, and he say Alhamdulillah that All praise is due to Allah and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen, the Lord of the worlds he says so Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He says the distance between the first heaven and the second is like a ring in a desert.

00:02:58--> 00:03:19

A ring in a desert. You know what he's saying? Yeah, and it's not existent anymore. Can you even see a ring in a desert? If we would have taken a picture? Right a bird's eye view of the visit. Could you even see the ring? Could you possibly even see the ring? He says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says the distance between the first second and the second is a distance of 500 yeas.

00:03:20--> 00:03:47

He says the second to the third is a distance of 500 G's. He says the third to the fourth is the distance of 500 G's. He says the fourth to the fifth is a distance of 500 G's. He says the fifth to the sixth is a distance of 500 G's. He says the sixth to the seventh is a distance of five and then the seven above this is an ocean above the Seventh Heaven is an ocean, the distance of which is the distance of 500.

00:03:57--> 00:04:02

He says all the seven heavens to the throne of the law is like a ring in a desert.

00:04:05--> 00:04:06

He says

00:04:10--> 00:04:24

he says some of them in the Hadith. He's sitting with the Sahaba he says to them, you know IE what you don't need and I see what you don't see. He says very really the heavens have squeak. He says he says I thought this summer.

00:04:26--> 00:04:38

He says very near the heavens my brother's like squeak and they have every single right to squeak for there isn't a space for four fingers. Except there is an angel in frustration to a law

00:05:02--> 00:05:33

00:05:35--> 00:06:03

We received I received personally a lot of nice words. Wonderful, wonderful. Shake this program this topic, this series that you'll be doing every Tuesday night speaking about the names and attributes of Allah. This episode is titled getting to know your Lord, who is your Lord, who is our Creator, our sustainer how do we get to know our Lord through what means and what information and why is it important? perhaps somebody might say, you know, I pray I memorize this book in that book. And that's enough for me. So how and why

00:06:05--> 00:06:08

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah

00:06:10--> 00:06:12

illallah wa sallahu lashley Kala

00:06:13--> 00:06:16

shadow Anna Mohammedan of the who was sued

00:06:18--> 00:06:39

a statement that the scholars have agreed that's a short offer let me be shut off. You know why the nobility of any science is contingent upon the subject matter. Right, right. Great point. Yes. Imagine the subject matter is a law. Right? Knowing Allah subhanho wa Taala Yes.

00:06:40--> 00:07:16

A sentence that I always repeat in my shows and especially the shows related to RP that it's a pity for a lot of Muslims that they come into this world and they leave without knowing who they worship. Even so they pray they fasted, no question about it. And even so they have a general knowledge. Yeah, you know of, but if you go deep into that knowledge, you will enjoy praying you'll enjoy fasting you will find yourself certainly

00:07:17--> 00:07:25

connected with Allah connected more with Allah subhana wa Tada. And we're supposed to worship Allah subhanaw taala would love

00:07:26--> 00:07:28

with fish with who?

00:07:30--> 00:07:44

Now a question. How do you love Allah when you do not know Allah right? How do you feel Allah when you do not know Allah right? How do you hope in Allah when you do not know who Allah is?

00:07:46--> 00:07:56

I think let me go into the first question which you you both who are following a certain methodology of presenting this subject in sha Allah, okay.

00:07:57--> 00:08:09

How do we know Allah? subhana wa Taala? Will they say the scholars, the religion of Islam is divided into two main categories.

00:08:10--> 00:08:20

two main parts, part number one lol mobila part number two allama Lula

00:08:21--> 00:08:50

that you know who Allah is. That's one side, right? The second side that you worship Allah, that you act, okay. On the knowledge once you know who Allah is, then you immediately say call inequality. One Oh, Suki, or am I a woman at lilla? Right? See that? Yeah. And there are a lot of Muslims they don't realize that they are connected.

00:08:52--> 00:09:38

Actually, if there is a defect, if this is the correct words in this country, okay, or shortage in your worship in your army, right in your actions. It's because of the lack of knowledge of knowledge once it comes to the first one and I will provide an evidence in Surah trotters Allah subhana wa tada says, In Yamaha min a bear the hill Allah indeed those who have reverence that's the right word. Harsha. Yes, okay, it's not just pure fish, but revering. Okay, few that is mixed with love. Those who truly feel Allah are the most knowledgeable of Allah.

00:09:40--> 00:09:42

Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

in a famous Hadith which we cite always to use as a witness for different issues in Islam. Howdy, howdy fellas in America wrote the law anti muslim, the three individuals who came to the house of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam

00:10:00--> 00:10:07

And they asked the manner about the manner of his worship. How does the Hadith is lengthy? I don't want to get here.

00:10:08--> 00:10:23

Yes, but one of them said, you know what I will pray the head with every night, never sleep. The other one said, I will fast every single day never break fast. The third one said, I will not marry women, right? Rasul salatu salam gotten the bobet.

00:10:24--> 00:10:39

And he condemned that, but here is how he condemned this. Lana lahmacun Villa, Chateau Kula hatia and the most knowledgeable amongst you who Allah is.

00:10:40--> 00:10:58

And I am the most fearful of him as well. So don't pretend right? Don't pretend. So, here is our solemn again linked the knowledge what action or belief to action and believe actually proper way to rub away There are people who have

00:10:59--> 00:11:44

that attitude but they end up taking the wrong path right? They take the crooked way. Now, answering your question now, how do we know Allah? First of all, we cannot see let's establish this we cannot see Allah subhanaw taala in this world, right? The eyes are limited, right? our physical experience is limited. You just can't. You see we're our little size cannot consume his greatness. It's the nature of the creation, the nature of the creation. And there was also a lot of Salah Malik made this crystal clear in a hadith society Muslim alemu and nakulan Tara, data Moto, rest assured that you will never be able to see Allah unless you die or until you die. So we affirm our role here.

00:11:45--> 00:11:55

Because there are those who negate seeing a line the difference election and engender. No we affirm that we'll see Allah if he wills in the day for his election. Okay. And if we admitted to Jenna, one of the

00:11:57--> 00:12:41

one of the greatest of all pleasures in general is looking at the face of Allah subhana wa Taala will do one Yama even Veera faces on the day we'll be beaming and happiness Illa Robbie Hannah, because they are looking at the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala lahoma share owner fi wala dynamic z in general, they get whatever they want and they have the increase. The schoolers explained the increase to be looking at the face of Allah subhanaw taala ladina. Arsenal Hausner was the ad. Those who were not seen in this world, they will receive the husna which is Jana in the day for the election and extra Ziad mo is looking at the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we will see Allah

00:12:41--> 00:13:01

in the Hereafter, but in this world, we will not and imagine the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said or made that statement in context of talking about to the Antichrist? Why, what is the relationship, the Antichrist, someone, a human being, who will come walking into this world and he's gonna claim that he is Allah.

00:13:02--> 00:13:36

So Allah is telling you, you will not see that the fact that you're able to see him is the first way to refute his claim. Okay? To prove that he's a liar. Okay? That if you're truly Allah, we shouldn't be able to see you in the first place. So now we cannot see Allah subhanaw taala in this world, so we establish that the second thing that we have to establish there is no created being looks like Allah or similar to Allah. Point Blank period done okay.

00:13:38--> 00:13:55

No way you're gonna equalize or make equal that created to the creator? No way right. As a man Yeah. Look, Kamala is the one who create creates is the same like the creative

00:13:57--> 00:14:45

laser chemically, he shade Renault one is like Allah Subhana hota once it comes to his divine essence, and the nature and the reality of that essence, once it comes to his names, once it comes to his attributes, once it comes to his actions, lordship, creation and, and sovereignty and disposing the affairs of what he created, no one is like Allah Subhana Allah. So now, the only way I'm still answering question, by the way, but I'm trying to limit the foundation. The only two ways you're left with to figure out who Allah is and to learn about Allah way number one reflecting upon what he created right and this is mentioned me first is the crane so yes, yeah, immediately Look how

00:14:45--> 00:14:50

we address the Salah. una LA de lica. Julio

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

was in a Santa Rosa, what lg balika Fantasy but what lol

00:15:00--> 00:15:33

Also to look at it. Why don't they look at the camels? You know camels for the Arabs are like Mercedes and BMW and and they are amazing animals like physically? Yes, it's true. Why don't they look how the how the camels are created? Yeah, who made these camels for them? And to the sky and to the mountains, how they are placed on the top of the earth, and to Earth how it's made even for them. So we will ask, follow me on guru LS, fo calm Ke

00:15:36--> 00:15:38

Ke femenina was a young

00:15:40--> 00:16:25

food, why don't they look at the sky above them? How we created it and how we decorated it. Right. You know, Malika, I'll never forget this. You know, the first time I ever rode in this car. I was riding with it. I was traveling in the US, you know, speaking in a conference and thinking, one of these weekend trips. So the person was picking me up at the airport, he was driving this fancy car. And then he was back in with his car. And somehow he had a screen in front of him. But he would give the car gas. He's He's back in. Yeah, but the car doesn't move. Right. Okay, right. Right. So they had a sensor in the back that if there is an object on go, even if the driver doesn't see it, and

00:16:25--> 00:16:48

he's giving the car gas? Mm hmm. The car doesn't move. Yeah. Imagine this. Yeah. You know, I was so because it's for me, it was like have like, three, four years ago. So I know, this is this technology. Now. You probably are available for a lot of people. But when it came out first, you don't immediately surprise. You know, I was so shocked. You know, the first question that I asked who made that car?

00:16:50--> 00:17:38

manufacturer? Right. So Paul, who is the maker of this car? Yeah. Likewise, I was inviting you to look at this. Yeah. Look at this universe. Yeah. Shouldn't you? Shouldn't you ask who made and the perfection? Yeah. of the creative things. Yeah, we're definitely indicate the perfection of the creative, sir. So this is way number one. Yeah. Way number two is the one which we're interested in, and the one that we want to explore every Tuesday insha Allah, which is studying the names and the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah subhanaw taala revealed themselves to us in the Quran, and in the sound Hadith, by describing himself, but naming himself certain names, describing himself

00:17:38--> 00:18:13

with certain attributes, or certain actions. This is another way that we can learn about Allah subhanaw taala. And this is what we'll be exploring. Thank you very much. In the beginning of this program, you mentioned something that really caught my attention, Jake, you said, it's a pity that many Muslims come into this world without knowing who Allah is. Yes, I guess sometimes you automatically think if I was I converted to Islam, I was born Muslim or whatever, I kind of inherited this information without making an effort to study. So in fact, what you're seeing is, I mean, imagine non Muslims, I usually it's a pity that Muslims may not know who's a law. So now as

00:18:13--> 00:18:30

Muslims, we have to take the initiative and make an effort to know who Allah is to improve our religion to be closer to him. And we can do that Exactly. It's actually a command Malik. It's not an option. Okay. Allah says, thought lm, and

00:18:31--> 00:18:38

Illa Illa Allah, learn La ilaha illa Allah. And when the schoolers divide the hate,

00:18:39--> 00:19:04

they end up dividing it in a very interesting way. And by the way, I want to say because there are a lot of people who critique you know, schoolers for doing this. These are just, you know, mechanisms right to teach the hate Yeah. Hopefully, way to to teach, you know, a lot of them they say, you guys are inventing that stuff, you know, never profit the total hero movie theater.

00:19:05--> 00:19:52

You know, you guys are breaking up this word. No, it's it's mechanism. It's a way to help you learn a way to help the masses learn. Yeah, that the subject of the A because it's so important. Listen, if you can come up with a with a with a better way, then go ahead and that way as long as you base it on the Quran and Sunnah, right? You know, but there is another way of categorization of categorizing the hate. Which is, which they they break them into just two to two parts. Okay. The Part one is LML harbury. The knowledge and the recognition of who Allah is okay. And the second one is Pahlavi, the actions wonderful, okay. So, this is again another mechanism right off dividing the

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

heat. So this is the mercy having different ways of learning. Yes. So now the foundation of the heat

00:20:00--> 00:20:47

The second half, which is actions is the knowledge of who Allah is. And at the very beginning of the episode, we said that they are connected. And if there is a defect, if there is a shortcoming, if there is a blockage on in your commitment to Allah, it's because of a deficit in your knowledge of who Allah is. So it's a requirement. Yeah, you don't have to be a academic, you know, you have you don't have to teach a smile and say that, but you must, in a way, try to explore that, to learn about Allah subhanaw taala because it's the foundation right? You see, it's for your benefit. It's for your worship. Look, look at this verse. Allah who led the Salah Casa da sama, Amina de mithila.

00:20:48--> 00:21:06

Allah subhana wa Taala is the one who created seven heavens, seven layers skies and also there are several layers of Earth. We believe that not seven continents like people want to misinterpret the text that will fashion had

00:21:07--> 00:21:09

you know it's a corrupt interpretation.

00:21:11--> 00:21:16

But there are several layers of Earth yet I am obeying

00:21:18--> 00:21:23

the commands of Allah subhanaw taala the sense the back and forth you know, the right

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

look, look look. Lita, Allah,

00:21:29--> 00:21:31

Polish a kadhi

00:21:32--> 00:21:33

la

00:21:34--> 00:21:35

Leisha in

00:21:36--> 00:22:10

all of this for you to learn to know that Allah is able to do everything, he created all of this. And he is a we've all are we're all Knower of what happens in the seven earth and the seven heaven. So imagine the reason why the creation of the heavens and the earth and how they function for us the human being, to believe that Allah is all evil is a deist to believe that Allah is all nor alim so that we commit to him, though, so

00:22:11--> 00:22:48

the knowledge of Allah is the key, okay, no shake is just a matter of also identifying our priorities as Muslims. For example, knowing who Allah is, is perhaps step one. If I just became Muslim, and I want to worship Allah, I don't necessarily have to go to Advanced Islamic sciences and study the native Raiders of Hadith and stuff like that immediately. First, I need to know who Allah is in order to to worship him. Is that correct? Absolutely. I mean, it's, it will help you with the quality of your of your worship enough enough that it will be a way for you to entertain

00:22:50--> 00:22:52

you know, it's a reason for you to entertain

00:22:54--> 00:22:56

the prophets of Allah Salah Malik

00:22:57--> 00:23:05

hora de la one and the Hadith in the two Saha it's agreed upon. What did they say? In LA he decided what is a nazma?

00:23:07--> 00:23:39

Man I saw her the halogen man a lava hidden man. Ah Sahaja halogen. Allah subhanaw taala has 99 names 100 minus one minus one. Who so ever. I saw her. I insist on using the Arabic word okay. Because enumeration that's the translation of nada. No, you see, I saw how would mean for things. enumeration is just one thing. So the translation is is was limited is limited. Okay. So when you use the word enumeration

00:23:41--> 00:23:47

not complete. No, si is not. And this is a mistake. Because a lot of people when they when they

00:23:48--> 00:23:54

when they when they go over this they think that they just have a hola hola de la ilaha illa de coco.

00:23:55--> 00:24:25

No, no, I mean, that's beautiful. But that's not what a parent can do that you can teach a parent ever to do that right? That's not okay. And we should go over this. Okay should go That's why I'm using the Arabic term of the verb I saw Manasa mean four means four things. Okay. The halogen will enter Jana, this is the witness that the knowledge of just 99 names of allies names because that Hadith and I think in your intro you you hinted to that may invite

00:24:26--> 00:24:48

Muslims to believe that the names of Allah are just limited to 99 and check out this is we want to take a look at a quick report the brothers in the showroom, I really want to get right back to the subject, but it's an interesting one, it's all on sale. Okay, we're gonna keep it for after the report you guys stay tuned to learn more about the 99 Names of Allah. If that is an authentic hadith or not, you guys stay tuned. Take a look at this report. We'll be right back with more from chicory magazine.

00:25:02--> 00:25:04

This act just reminds me of

00:25:10--> 00:25:12

the most generous, generous of us

00:25:14--> 00:25:15

a lot of Getty

00:25:18--> 00:25:31

data is the most generous, and he loves those who are trainers, I would talk about 99 names 88 taken from an agent from the sooner the name that comes to my mind now is an

00:25:33--> 00:25:33

all living

00:25:35--> 00:25:39

everybody would die. The good will die tai chi,

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

chi,

00:25:43--> 00:25:50

chi, the righteous will die, and die, and who shall remain?

00:25:55--> 00:25:58

Name that comes to my mind now is

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

one and only the creator of this universe. The name that comes to my mind now is he

00:26:10--> 00:26:13

is the one who answers the call of the meeting

00:26:14--> 00:26:22

is in the gym solely to worship Him. The Prophet that is sad to see them says whosoever doesn't have upon people or must

00:26:25--> 00:26:28

not be merciful towards that, which does not have

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

a must

00:26:31--> 00:26:37

is the shepherd and he also likes us to be thankful. And we've got so much to be thankful

00:26:38--> 00:26:39

when you go to the hospital and

00:26:41--> 00:26:42

the purpose of this is to know

00:26:52--> 00:27:21

Welcome back to Hotel Tonight shake remembers he thank you for staying with us. Would you like to comment this on this report, Sheikh would like to get back to our interesting discussion about the nine Names of Allah and before you don't try to remind the viewers at home you guys give us a call. We are live if you would like to call in and talk to chicory magazine about this issue of the names and attributes of Allah or any issue indeed give us a call on sha Allah sukrin would like to comment on the report or would you like to get right back to your discussion? Well, the report is wonderful. You know, I think we will comment.

00:27:22--> 00:27:30

Once we explain the word I saw how because Okay, yeah, that's okay. Well, okay. But I think there is the Hadith

00:27:31--> 00:28:10

vihara for Sahaj that Allah has 99 names 100 minus one, right? whosoever does a Sahaja will intelligent, right? So first of all, we're talking about the benefits. One of the benefits of learning the names and the attributes are sought for the names and the attribute the names of Allah subhanaw taala, just 99 of them will will be a means for him to enter and the witness was the knowledge that witnesses the knowledge now, this hadith may invite a lot of Muslims to assume that the names of Allah are just limited to 99 names and this is wrong. Okay. The names of Allah subhanaw taala are indefinite.

00:28:11--> 00:28:28

Countless infinite you cannot get infinite. Yeah, that's the word infinite in different also. Yeah, and definite tool. Yeah, you can't you cannot keep track of them. What is the evidence for Muslim dilemma Muhammad, Khalid Abdullah Abdullah, so the famous Hadith, the famous da,

00:28:29--> 00:28:57

O Allah, Hi, I'm your slave, the son of your slave women, the son of your slave, also servant. My appearances in your hand now we'll see in rctb edik, whatever you decree upon me will will come to pass. And I'm contented with this. I call upon you with each name you named yourself with, or you reveal this in one of the books or you told it any of your servants here is the witness, or you kept the knowledge of it with you.

00:28:58--> 00:29:28

Step 13. via email via in Dec. So this hadith establishes like the names of a lot of reality that there are names that Allah did not reveal in books nor taught any of his servants are okay and we do have another Hadith that the lengthy Hadith the hadith of intercession, Hadith, Tisha, that when mankind in the day for the reduction, moonwalk, a funeral home that believers and the disbelievers amongst them

00:29:29--> 00:29:49

would suffer from standing for an extended duration of time in the land of gathering without knowing what will unfold, then they would go to the messengers one after another, requesting them to go and intercede before Allah subhanaw taala in order for Allah to come in a way that suits His Majesty,

00:29:51--> 00:30:00

to begin rocking and judgment. The Hadith says that they will go to Adam then Noah, then Ibrahim then Moosa, then

00:30:00--> 00:30:42

Asia masala and then they would end up all these will will decline will say no you know not qualified will not qualify and when they go to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he will say I'm for it, I'm for it, I am for it. Then he will proceed and he will prostrate in front of the throne of Allah Subhana Allah. He is the witness again, I'm quoting the whole thing for that witness. So master Allahu Allah Joby Mohammed, Allah subhana wa Taala with revealed to me names and attributes of his that no human beings have ever breathed along with it. Okay, this is the witness. This is the witness, and we're talking about the Resurrection Day of Resurrection. Okay, that's

00:30:43--> 00:31:30

great. So, so what do we mean by 99? names? out of the names of Allah, there are 99 names. Okay. It's like I tell you later, when it's in the last 10 days, can we say it's the 27th? possible? It's possible we can pass Yeah, here. Okay. Now the question comes in, did the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam identify these 99 names? This is a great question. No, he never did. We cannot. If we can't use Aquinas when we cannot find anything. Well, the 99 names are amongst the names mentioned in the Quran. And that's okay. You understand, right? But you say that name and that name and you end up with 99 names I see never been established. Oh, and there is I want to warn the viewers there is a

00:31:30--> 00:32:15

hadith in fissara tirmidhi, from Sunil anomic tirmidhi, where he quotes that the Prophet named these names the Hadith, the consensus of the experts of Hadith, the Hadith is we Okay, so we cannot rely on the knowledge and it is weak fabricated, some of them actually said it's fabricated, fabricated or forged? Is that correct? Okay. So now the the notion that the 99 names are these names is incorrect, okay, for you to coincide with the 99 names, like you have to do at the care of the last 10 nights of the Ramadan to coincide with a little cut. You have to study what the whole 10 days you have to the whole, right you have to study the names of Allah. Oh, Allah mentioned in the Quran, and

00:32:15--> 00:32:57

the authentic hadith, okay, you have to do this. You have to study them, in order to coincide But listen, the fact that the name was mentioned in the Quran would give it what a high possibility a high status is like that. 27 Yeah, Ramadan high, there is a high status because we have a lot of text. Right? Well establish that. So the names that are mentioned in the Quran, especially in the last page in Surah. hash. Will you know, Allah subhanaw taala listed these names one after another? Certainly. Okay. It's Eli Lilly, the prophet spoke about the, the mighty name of Allah. So there are indications with give more credential to certain names, okay, over other names, there is no question

00:32:57--> 00:33:28

about it. But for you to get those 99 names, you have to study all of them shake. We want to do this program once a week to teach the people how to get closer to a lot to know who your Lord is, right. And he chose to speak about the names and attributes of a law. So this would indicate to us the rate, the first way, for me as a servant of a lot to get close to him, and to improve my relationship with him is by knowing his names and attributes, somebody might say, isn't there a different method of getting close to Allah? Why the names and attributes? Why are they so important? Why is it important for me to know these names and attributes as opposed to maybe some other sort of

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

Islamic Studies, for example,

00:33:31--> 00:33:35

you see, a lot of the people, I think, mistakenly

00:33:36--> 00:33:47

and this is the great skill of CFA, one of the greatest skills of mhfa is connecting arcada. To

00:33:49--> 00:34:06

to you know, connecting belief system, this subject that we're talking about as a matter of belief system, names of attributes of Allah is divided into the blob this has to do with me praying, it does have to do with you praying right? Imagine

00:34:07--> 00:34:10

one of the attributes of Allah that Allah has a face

00:34:12--> 00:34:17

could Lucia in Allah says, Colucci in Harlequin Illa

00:34:18--> 00:34:25

every single thing will perish except Allah His face. Now listen,

00:34:26--> 00:34:28

we must affirm that Allah has a face

00:34:30--> 00:34:34

but we don't like in his face to the create it okay.

00:34:35--> 00:34:49

You understand right right likewise with the like the faces of the created to the face of Allah right right. Let let him fill right. There is no example or correlation. You see when when we say we must affirm because there are people

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

out of good intention. Let's assume that Yeah, yeah, of course. Certainly. Yeah. They rejected the fact that Allah has a face. But why did he do this?

00:35:00--> 00:35:45

He was afraid to end up liking a lot of the creative because when you say the word face right the first thing that would go spring out of your mouth immediately immediately is the face of who a human a human yeah of course. No. Okay, so we tell them thank you very much you had a good intention right but we don't like because we understand the names and the attributes under this Emperor LASIK admittedly he shaved Okay, as a general over overarching rule Yes, no one is like in Allah, no one is like Allah subhana wa tada no one let me Aquila who Khufu and I had no one can be compared to Allah Subhana hota okay. No one is like Allah subhanho wa Taala again once it comes to his divine

00:35:45--> 00:36:01

essence okay once it comes to his attributes, attributes of the essence so that was that like the face once it comes to his actions of lordship, creation, sovereignty disposing once it comes to his names and attributes, okay, so now

00:36:02--> 00:36:03

we affirm

00:36:04--> 00:36:05

that Allah has a face

00:36:07--> 00:36:32

there are others who said okay, we believe that Allah has you know, we affirm we because the word is was mentioned in the Quran. Yeah. The word was mentioned in the Quran. So some of them said but let's find a different meaning to the word face a different interpretation interpretation that we write I tell them why did they do this? Because they are afraid to end up liking right on law.

00:36:33--> 00:36:43

Yeah, which is good. I mean, they don't want a lot of intention or or not. Okay, yeah, but I always like I

00:36:44--> 00:37:10

mean, but Mashallah because it does destroy the religion if you don't understand the names and the attributes of a lot properly right? You end up with with with with with totally wrong constitute your own concept of who you worship. Yeah, my way Well, luckily, Alma Yabu Adam and well, Matthew, Buddha Solomon, pay attention is the one who negate the names and the attributes of Allah is worshipping What?

00:37:12--> 00:37:13

Nobody.

00:37:14--> 00:37:54

That's a good point. Right? What are you worshiping then? Right. Who are you worshiping here? Right? When you say Allah doesn't have a hat and I love as an outfit when they are mentioned in the Quran. When you say Allah is not merciful Allah is enough, right? When they are mentioned, relation who you will should we have to have some sort of, it's like I tell you listen, I have a son, Masha, Allah is out of this world. Oh, what are his attributes? None? None? It doesn't make sense. Okay, I understand your point. It doesn't make any sense right. So when we say we must affirm any name, any attribute of Allah mentioned in the Quran or the sound Hadith without misinterpreting them without

00:37:54--> 00:37:59

taking their apparent meaning Okay, to another hidden meaning.

00:38:01--> 00:38:06

When when you know look at look at those when they say that Allah descends the last third of the night

00:38:08--> 00:38:49

you know that they say yeah, don't say a lot that this doesn't descend. Let's say that the mercy of Allah the sense right, they add some swearing, no, they do something cool that will what is that will they take they take the apparent meaning? Which is a lot the sense if you're an Arabic speaking right when I say Allahu, Allah the lower heaven the last third of the night is crystal clear to an Arabic speaking this is what intended for you to understand from the text now, because they don't like to like in Allah because when when you say a lot the sentence what goes into their mind as if me and you

00:38:50--> 00:39:30

you see with the like in a lot of the creative being right right. With the like in a lot that you see, we see the safest way to understand the names and the attributes the way that the companions understood it. And the Sahaba understood which was not excessively asking about it, because they knew what was right. They understood you see, you know this man who came and asked Mr. Malik, and your name is Matt laughing I love this story you told me before the show I really liked your story you know when when the man came on has established a large one star large missing an Arabic speaking know what stellar is Rose and set. Okay? Something like that. Something Allah was Taka. Okay, nice.

00:39:30--> 00:39:59

linguistically, it's knowing and the meaning is known. But once it comes to Allah, my cut off any hope right? That I can find out the nature and the reality of how Allah knows about it. That was one of your four points. Yes. Yes, yes. Okay. Shall I will we'll go there. This subject is so interesting. When you open it up, I just enjoy talking about it. You know, the, imagine talking about the loss of hydrometer is one of the most and you cannot imagine does left your face on

00:40:00--> 00:40:11

Certainly if you really want to get a jump start once it comes to your feet if you're a man is down three points just just read the names and attribute every point is like one of these jumps you know when you have a car that is you

00:40:14--> 00:40:35

know, if you want to have a jump start just just this is one of the things that you can do haleema Medical demo Listen, Alicia omalu it is no one is no one. Okay, no one to me as an Arabic speaking person. Yeah. Eman bhiwadi. I must affirm that Allah who is above the Throne because it's mentioned in the Quran obligatory it's obligatory it is a text in the Quran. So final.

00:40:36--> 00:41:19

l Kaif not How about how about is unknown to us how he did it is not known because because I don't know anything about a law because I have not seen a lot like we mentioned here and there is no one is liking Allah Subhana Allah. So for me is unknown. And asking about it is a bit Ah, get out of here. So what are the reasons behind it? I love this answer. And the wisdom is he cannot imagine this answer just given us a lot of break. Because this subject I know, I know, a lot of the viewers may not be aware of the depth of the subject, but this subject is a subject of debate for years. And go ahead. I'm trying to appreciate because here you want to teach the people how to get to know a

00:41:19--> 00:41:41

law through the names of the attributes. So perhaps it's it's important to say, look, it's not important for everyone. I didn't do this. I think I I got off the subject here. And I still want to explain why it's important. And I said Alabama chef, a connected and I spoke about the feasts. Yeah. Let me just finish. So the viewers may say, oh, that chef is gone right and

00:41:42--> 00:41:42

he will get it.

00:41:44--> 00:41:53

But let me go back to the point of the fixture. So we believe that Allah has a face would like in the face of our law to the creative being no real like in the faces of the Creator being to Allah.

00:41:55--> 00:42:15

And also we cut off any hope that we can find out how the face of Allah looks like and that's an important point. Don't even think about it. Right. I mean, we're lucky. Schumpeter, one of the schools and careful, Anita Keefe, look at this. Duck Dion. Bill, gentlemen,

00:42:17--> 00:43:04

out of Korea, Iran bill is an out of rerun bill Bannon. That you must cut off any hope that you can find out how Allah subhanho wa Taala looks like how his names and attributes are the nature and the reality how his divine essence is. What would your heart that if you sit like this and say, Okay, I'm going to do this I'm going to find out how looks like and listen for the meditation, do some meditation and whatever when you reach Allah is above that. You'll never reach wherever you would never whatever, or that you describe Allah with your tongue, the hurrian tequila and Belgian and Korean bellies and that you speak out by describing Allah has this has that

00:43:05--> 00:43:45

out the Harrier and Bill Baron or you use your a banana, they're the fingers that are riding right over the blowing. Yeah, or making sculptures, the sculptures of Allah idols, idols, yeah, you can, whatever you read a lot is above that. So you must cut off any hope that the face of Allah looks like that way or that certain way. Because I want to say this, why because shaitaan comes and plays certainly shaitaan comes and plays with the minds of a lot of Muslims and make you visualize a lie in a certain way. So Allah is above that whatever you reach as a way to get you to deviate. Look at this hadith Malik. Look at this. And again, I'm not getting off the subject. I'm gonna go back to

00:43:45--> 00:43:57

the face and the connection with with diabetic and why it's important. Look at this, you have to say upon shaitan will come to one of you. And he will ask you this question. Who created the seven earth and the seven heavens?

00:43:59--> 00:44:01

Hello, actually shaitan is gonna help you.

00:44:02--> 00:44:05

He's gonna help you say Allah. Yeah. sticky. Do

00:44:07--> 00:44:19

you believe? Do not follow the footsteps of shaitan that's an entry. Yeah, Allah is the Creator, the creator of the seven heavens and the seven earth. And then here's the next question. Who created you? shaitaan is gonna help you?

00:44:21--> 00:44:59

A lot, right? But he is what he's looking for. Who created Allah? Right? Because he now he's playing with you. asking question that don't need to be asked. And if you go into this, listen to this. If you go into answering this question, now, how does a law look like right? So some people do that. Say, man to be law? I believe in Allah and His Messenger, right? Because nada, cut off right? gotta stop, stop. Because if you go down this road chick you're not coming back. Nope. It's a road that you know, if you go a lot of people went don't come back. It's like an ocean. Yes, we know if you don't have the right battles. You're not coming back. You're not gonna come because this is

00:44:59--> 00:45:00

philosophy.

00:45:00--> 00:45:14

Any kind of speculative theology Yes, that's a great term sheet. Yes. There's no there's no entrepreneur project. Yeah, because there's no there's no end. It's a there's no end to that. Let me finish my point. Yes, yes. So the viewers are not confused. So when you stand in the Salah

00:45:16--> 00:45:28

This is an act of worship Salah. We do it five times a day. Beside the voluntary beside if there is the 100 the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a law young Cebu What do you have who Illa

00:45:29--> 00:46:07

Allah, the face of Allah is looking at your face and Salah. Imagine someone now who believes that Allah has a face. Yes, he's not gonna like in the face of a lot to the creative being. No, he's gonna try to figure out how the face of Allah looks like. But I'm standing and now I'm looking at a loss of Allah. He's looking at me. I was looking at my face right now and I'm standing in the sun, of course will have a huge effect on you. They make you think I'm gonna you know some people when they pray. They like this looking at the stars or, you know, their ears or whatever here and the Prophet said Marbella. chlamydia, una Apsara. Home. If you if you don't stop doing this, Allah would

00:46:07--> 00:46:40

snatch your your your your sight, because you must have what is even an hour it's even in our human concept. It's a sign of disrespect. Oh, sure. I'm talking to you. I'm looking at this right now. I'm looking at somewhere else. Right, right, right. Can you imagine looking at a cup, right? And then you look at the stars. You look at the sun. Look at a man right? You're like you're guilty. Yeah, so you're supposed to look, you show humility and humbleness and you're bound down in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that believe in the attribute of the face affected What?

00:46:41--> 00:46:44

The quality of what of your worship,

00:46:45--> 00:46:52

shape, we have a phone call from brother Shaheen from Amen. And we'll get back to the points we can link together the amount of traffic coming in from Oh man, that's normally combo. Thank you for calling.

00:46:56--> 00:46:57

Thank you. Thank you. So

00:46:58--> 00:47:01

in your speech, you're describing a word.

00:47:05--> 00:47:09

I just wanted to know that four points you were telling that

00:47:10--> 00:47:21

to innovate? In English the word is to enumerate but in Arabi it is Asa Yes. Yeah. Can you extend this word? Thank you so much for that call. I want to remind the viewers that wasn't ustedes

00:47:23--> 00:47:24

viewers

00:47:25--> 00:48:05

point you take and you know, we're coming to the end of the program and the next next it has to be next Tuesday, but I will do it quickly for this Okay. Okay. I will do it quickly. Because I saw her means enumerate if you translated just saw her means to count them right. But I saw her means four things okay. Number one that you collect them, you count them okay. you memorize them, as you mentioned or you read them as you mentioned people Yes, okay. Number two that you understand them the way that our righteous predecessors understood them okay. And this is what will go on we will go on over a minute ago, yeah, that you do not negate the name you do not negate the attribute you do

00:48:05--> 00:48:36

not misinterpret. You must understand them You must affirm if Allah said Allah has a hand Allah has a hand, but I don't like in his hand to the created nor I try to find out how Allah has had looked like he understand right I cut off you know, so I must understand is that when when a few without the speed without them feel that you affirm and negate, you affirm what a law firm and you negate, negate Okay, without what, why can Allah subhana wa, do that created beings? And also,

00:48:38--> 00:49:03

you can have any hope that you can figure out how Allah subhana wa, tada, looks like, how his names and attributes so this is number two. Yeah. So number one is counting, memorizing right saying them that you collect them from the Quran and the Sunnah. And you count them, you say them, you understand them work correctly, as you mentioned correctly, though, the way that the that our righteous speed assessors understood, you don't come and say how did the Rosa

00:49:05--> 00:49:07

we don't know how but we know that he rose in a certain way.

00:49:09--> 00:49:28

We gave up the knowledge regarding the How about, but they do function in a certain way. Be careful, because sometimes they say you're rejected. No, Allah subhanaw taala rose in a certain way, but I don't know. Yeah, once it comes to num number three, each name Malik has

00:49:29--> 00:49:34

has, what is servitude, as you mentioned, jph name has a meaning.

00:49:35--> 00:49:40

That meaning sometimes requires a servitude. For example, for example,

00:49:41--> 00:49:45

his mama has semia Allah is the hero, okay?

00:49:46--> 00:49:59

That Allah hears. Now, what should you say when you speak? Should you say good words? Okay. I see if you know that Allah hears what you say, should you gossip. It's a matter of if you do that. It's like when I tell you how

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

How the knowledge of the names and the atom connected to Yes, so each name has a servitude that you must exercise like you should create an effect together together. Yeah, not just the fifth the manners the actual Yeah, if it's Mullah Hill basilar Elba series The old seer that Allah sees you wherever you are so act like it I should you use should you do something like you know should you do? Should you do something like this? Should you do should you go should you go inside the room and watch a bad movie right? Should you do that? Because allies walked the halls here. So, Allah says Allah hears this is an example Okay, okay. There are names where you should exercise the attribute

00:50:38--> 00:51:19

or a man show mercy and and this is what was happening in the report. Yeah. You know, when they say that, you know, Allah Subhana Allah is the merciful. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam connected the two and Hadith of the life rather than us. Yes, he shouldn't be the way he said mela Johan layer hum. Whosoever is not showing mercy to that created beings. He will never be shown mercy by who? Hello, and another wording or hammelmann fill out of the manifest center. Be merciful to those who are in the earth. The one in the heavens will be merciful to you. So you must exercise certain servitude there are names that imply the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala Okay, they love him

00:51:20--> 00:52:04

allegedly you know that you know they did so you must exalt Allah subhanaw taala against names there are names that imply hope that Allah subhanaw taala forgiving a man who killed 100 souls, this is not an invitation to go and kill people right but this gives hope to the centers that you always can come back to Allah subhanaw taala there are names that imply fears that Allah punishes you normally tuck in a bar right? So you must feel Allah Subhana Allah so there are so this is number three, there are names that apply servitude apply certain servitude okay based on the nature of that name, okay, you must exercise that servitude Okay, number four and the last one he let him smell her snare

00:52:04--> 00:52:35

for the obeah to Allah belongs the Most Beautiful Names call upon Allah using these names and that's a beautiful one check I mean for example, if I'm in need of mercy, I can say I use the word that applies to His mercy. This right you're a man of harmony, right you see that that you use the name relevant to yes your condition is this so this is the meaning of Asana and we'll probably need to cover this next episode inshallah. So number one, counting collecting them memorizing them saving them. Number two, understanding them the way that our righteous leader says that understand them. Number three,

00:52:36--> 00:53:05

exercising the servitude which is related to the name Okay, number four, you call upon Allah subhanaw taala using the snake and shake that's perfect timing. We're gonna have to get continue this talk next Tuesday. inshallah, thank you for your time you guys and you guys don't miss Hudson every Tuesday we're going to continue this series with a crew members eight speaking about the names, names and attributes of Allah and how we can understand them and use them to improve ourselves and become closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and prove our religion or in our religious practices, you guys thank you for staying tuned. Until next time, I leave you in the care of Allah

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