Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My dear brothers and sisters in Islam Welcome back to her tonight. Thank you so much for continuing to be with us on this beautiful Tuesday nights we ask a las panatela As always, to make the time that we spend here together in our scale of good deeds and to make it a benefit for all of us. inshallah, as I just said, It is Tuesday and again until la It is time to be joined here in the studio and hamdulillah I mean for a full hour with Chef Kareem was eight and his him and brother medical and GLaDOS My dear brother started last week who Mashallah beautiful series on the names and attributes of a last panel Tyler. It is my honor tonight inshallah

00:00:48--> 00:01:18

to be hosting shift Karim so that we can continue in this series in the light Allah and tonight inshallah My dear brothers and sisters, we're going to be continuing to introduce the topic and talk about the very famous Hadith that talks about the 99 Names of Allah let's go ahead and take a look at this report inshallah. And then inshallah my brothers and sisters when we come back, we will begin our discussion. This is a report by chef Bilal Philips, and he's talking about the word Bismillah. And its meaning.

00:01:28--> 00:01:31

We know the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:01:33--> 00:01:36

was to say Bismillah.

00:01:38--> 00:01:39

To mention a law's name.

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

And,

00:01:43--> 00:01:49

in fact, it was common for him to say Bismillah before doing

00:01:50--> 00:01:58

anything, of importance, when we actually look through his Sunnah, we find him using Bismillah

00:02:00--> 00:02:16

not necessarily Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, but just at least the portion Bismillah, in the name of a law before doing deeds of importance. And this is the reminder for us.

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

The literal translation of Bismillah

00:02:21--> 00:02:27

in the name of a law, or with the name of a law

00:02:29--> 00:02:34

seems incomplete. What do you mean, in the name of Allah,

00:02:35--> 00:02:39

or With the name of Allah, when you say Bismillah,

00:02:40--> 00:02:42

it is saying actually,

00:02:44--> 00:02:49

in the name of Allah, I will do this act,

00:02:50--> 00:02:56

I will do it with the remembrance of Allah, I am remembering a lot

00:02:58--> 00:02:59

while doing it.

00:03:01--> 00:03:10

And this becomes a reminder for us that whatever we are about to do,

00:03:12--> 00:03:17

it is by the permission of a law that we're able to do it.

00:03:18--> 00:03:24

It is by the grace of Allah and His mercy, that we have had the opportunity to do it.

00:03:27--> 00:03:30

And it is from his

00:03:31--> 00:03:32

blessing.

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

If we do it successfully,

00:03:38--> 00:03:43

and we benefit from it, all of it goes back to Allah.

00:03:44--> 00:03:47

So, we say before doing

00:03:48--> 00:03:57

whatever we are about to do of some importance, some importance to us, we say Bismillah

00:03:59--> 00:04:02

and as we said, on other occasions,

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

where we are entering into

00:04:08--> 00:04:14

areas where there is potential misguided misguidance

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

saying Bismillah

00:04:19--> 00:04:22

also helps to keep us

00:04:24--> 00:04:25

on the right path.

00:04:27--> 00:04:31

As a remembrance of Allah, it helps to keep us on track.

00:04:33--> 00:04:37

So if we go to the internet, also call the fitna net.

00:04:39--> 00:04:41

If we say Bismillah

00:04:42--> 00:04:50

before we turn on, or as we turn on the computer, or laptop, whatever we say Bismillah.

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

This is a reminder to help us stay on track. So we don't go on the computer

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

Because if we know if our intention to go on the computers for something which is haram, not pleasing to Allah, then it's difficult for us to say Bismillah and then go open up your computer.

00:05:16--> 00:05:17

If there's any

00:05:18--> 00:05:30

mustard seed of the mind, in our hearts, we will be very shy, it will be impossible for us to say Bismillah and go into it. It's like saying Bismillah and taking a glass of alcohol.

00:05:34--> 00:05:53

So, if we find that we don't want to say Bismillah we want to go ahead and do it without saying Bismillah then this is this is a guide for us. This is a reminder for us, that whatever activity we're about to do is one we should not be doing.

00:06:00--> 00:06:30

Santa Monica rahmatullah wa barakato. My dear brothers and sisters in Assam. Welcome back to this very interesting episode of hoteltonight. Hamlet, a lot of I mean, it's very interesting, because we're talking about the names and attributes of a loss penalty. And it's also very interesting that a lot of I mean, because we are honored to be joined here in the studio by sheath saramonic Polycom Salama of La Habra cattle, for taking the time to be with us tonight. inshallah every Tuesday night, I enjoy it. And I enjoy being with you. And Malik

00:06:31--> 00:06:32

is wonderful.

00:06:34--> 00:07:20

Last week, you guys started a series talking about the names and attributes of a las panatela such a beautiful, and a great topic and something that is so relevant and so important for the time that we live today. And he talked about the Hadith that says in its meaning that a las panatela has 99 names 100 minus one, whoever encompasses all of these names will enter gender that's kind of like the general translation of the Hadith. I want to specifically begin by asking you about the idea of the word swaha. Does it mean what I just said that you know, the person who encompasses this or does it have a bigger meaning of some people think okay, if I memorize the names of a las panatela than I

00:07:20--> 00:07:22

have nine names, then I shall enter Jin

00:07:24--> 00:07:27

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah

00:07:30--> 00:07:36

illallah wa Hu la sharika Mohammedan Aveda who also

00:07:38--> 00:07:42

I just want to let the viewers know the importance of this subject.

00:07:44--> 00:07:57

epner claim Rahim Allah has a beautiful statement he said menara for Allah Almighty for Allah bestow effect he was highly he was smart. He had the hula hula

00:07:58--> 00:08:19

whosoever, get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala. Through His names, attributes and actions, he will love Allah, no doubt. And you know when you serve Allah subhana wa Tada. When you worship Allah would love it makes a whole difference.

00:08:20--> 00:08:28

That is why you could stand in the Salah for hours because you're standing in front of our last panel. So, this subject is a key

00:08:29--> 00:08:36

to turn a lot of the rituals which we perform from being a burden to

00:08:37--> 00:08:46

sense of enjoyment, enjoyment, and this is why we understand the statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to be left

00:08:47--> 00:08:48

behind.

00:08:50--> 00:08:59

Let us find comfort, comfort and peace in it in it here means the sort of the Salah oberland I go back to your question.

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

You referring to Hadith ebihara of your loved one, what Hadith Mustafa canali agreed upon in both el barrio Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says in nilay dishearten what is in Esma? To Allah belongs 99 names mathan illa Haider. 100 minus one men saw her the halogen, whosoever does so you use the word in

00:09:33--> 00:09:56

different ways to be because there is a big name Yes, it's just whoever guards it. Whoever memorizes it whoever count them, he will antigen. So in the previous episode, and I would like the viewers to know that this is a series of episodes Yes. So for them to get the first portion of the Hadith

00:09:57--> 00:10:00

we remove the misconception that the names of Allah

00:10:00--> 00:10:49

are not limited to the 99 names, they are more than that. But out of the whole list of names mentioned in the Quran mentioned in this one of the prophets Allah said and the authentic one, there are just 99 names. If you saw for listening, if you do a search for these names, you will intergender it will be a means for you to interject. Now, the scholars came up with four things that you need to do to fulfill the meaning of the verb Saha in the Hadith. Number one, you must count them, you must look for them, look for them in the Quran and this one, and bring them and, and hamdulillah I want to let the viewers know a lot of the scholars did this work for you. There are a

00:10:49--> 00:11:35

lot of literature's out there available. And they are authentic. With these names are available. Some of them Count 1000 some of them counted 2000 1500. There is a some variation here and there. But start you don't have to go into the Quran and the Sunnah, and do that research, somebody did it for you already. So this is the first step that you get your hands on these names. Number two, and this is the most important and crucial thing that you must understand them the way that our righteous breed assessors, the first three praised generations understood them.

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

How

00:11:39--> 00:11:48

if a name is mentioned, or an attribute is mentioned in the Quran, and the Sunnah, I must affirm it would be to who

00:11:49--> 00:11:55

cannot deny it, you cannot deny it, and cannot give it a meaning. That is a way to deny

00:11:57--> 00:12:50

that you end up this is what we call a corrupt interpretation that we will face it. When Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, he had a law he felt at him, the hand of Allah is above their hands. Now, don't say Allah has a hand. Why Why did they do this? Why they want to negate this? Why they do they want to negate the hand from Allah. Because he said when you say hands so the first thing that springs out in your mind is what the hand of what the human hands of the human hand No, listen, listen, we understand the names and the attributes of Allah under an umbrella is called what laser catenacci shade. No one is like into Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, yes, we affirm the hand. We

00:12:50--> 00:12:51

do not negate it.

00:12:52--> 00:13:03

The people who did not want to negate it, negate Jani, Neff, be they are called wakulla. They negate they dismiss the fact that Allah has a hand.

00:13:05--> 00:13:34

But again, we think positive about our brothers Mashallah because they are afraid that they're going to end up liking a lot to the creative being. We tell them thank you very much. We're not liking Allah, and understanding the hand in a way that suits His Majesty. No one is like him somehow no hotel. So we don't like his hand to the hand of the created. This is number one. Number two, we cut off any hope that I can figure out the nature or the reality of Allah, his hand

00:13:36--> 00:14:23

and calf and the key for that I cannot reach regardless of what you visualize, Allah has above that Subhana Allah is above that. So number one, we affirm, you affirm the attribute, you affirm the name, as long as it is mentioned in the Quran. And in this one, you do not negate it, or you try to miss interpret the the attribute to another hidden meaning, like they said, The hand is the power of the power of Allah. That's a mis interpretation. And that will fast it why because the hand is a hand but now it is not like the hands of the human. So you must affirm I don't want to confuse the viewers, we must affirm the name we must affirm the attribute, we do not like in Allah subhana wa

00:14:23--> 00:14:46

Taala to the created being and we cut off any hope that we can find out how the Divine Essence of Allah is, how his names are, how his actions are, we cut off any hope because we do not have access to that knowledge. Look at this letter K from LA Illallah.

00:14:48--> 00:14:52

The only one who knows how Allah is Allah is Allah Subhana Allah.

00:14:53--> 00:15:00

And we share with the viewers the statement of Mr. Malik Rahim Allah when somebody entered into them

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

And asked him a nomadic Estella Allah. What do you mean by Savalas? Listen? He said to him, at least you were maloom. What does it mean? And what did the mathematic mean? The word the verb stoer, for an Arabic speaking is known, Allah was staccato, he rose and he said, that's what it means. And he man will be he was, I must believe that Allah who rose above the Throne,

00:15:26--> 00:16:00

because it's mentioned were in the Quran, otherwise you'd be belying what a man rather large. Estella? Yes, you would be belying the Quran. So I you must believe in it. And case module how he did it is unknown to me to us. Because I don't have access to that knowledge. I have not seen Allah Subhana. Allah informed, informed me that he rose above the throne in that manner, whatsoever and will be asking about it is trying to figure out how Allah rose above the throne is an innovation.

00:16:01--> 00:16:02

Take them out of the machine.

00:16:04--> 00:16:50

So this is number two. Of course, there is a huge subject that we can but I want to still sum up the answer to your question here. So step number two is understanding the words the names and the attributes of Allah, the way that our righteous predecessors, under the companions of the Prophet read the same verse or man or alarm system. They never asked the Prophet How did he rose above the floor? They never have you ever come in? It's an innovation. Have you ever come across a hadith that Sahabi Abu Bakr Omar of man went to Rasulullah saw Solomon, how did he do this? Because they know they know. Number three, and this is the most important piece, brothers and every name has a

00:16:50--> 00:16:51

servitude

00:16:52--> 00:17:11

is smooth law has Samia, the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the old here has a meaning. What does it mean in relation relevant to you relevant to our lives? Morocco has not easy. What does it mean is semia mean that hears everything that you say?

00:17:12--> 00:17:21

Now, if you want to apply the name of Allah all here in your life, if you want to do a Sahaja truly, should you lie?

00:17:22--> 00:17:25

Should you backbite should you gossip?

00:17:26--> 00:17:33

You should speak what good words you should because Allah hears you, Allah hears you. And

00:17:34--> 00:17:41

Subhan Allah is Allah Allah says the name of Allah, the old seer. He sees you.

00:17:42--> 00:17:59

Now when you like chief Bilal, Dr. Philips in his beautiful report what he said in that beautiful report, that you go inside the room and you and you turn on the computer and you want to watch a bad movie, just say Bismillah just remember that Allah is watching, are you going to do it?

00:18:01--> 00:18:12

every name has a servitude, for you to implement. So you must fulfill that servitude. Meaning when you say servitude, meaning we work through the link

00:18:13--> 00:18:32

somehow, some of the names have to do with magnifying Allah Al Jabbar limited and so forth. Number four and the last one that you call upon Allah subhana wa Taala with these names, and this is a command in the Quran. Wali let him smell olho snap

00:18:33--> 00:18:47

to Allah belongs the Most Beautiful Names call upon Allah subhanaw taala through these names now for you to make up to use the right name for what you're asking. You should know what the money means if you're poor and needing wealth, your honey

00:18:48--> 00:19:31

poor your wealth poor your riches above above me. You're asking for Ramayana, man of harmony, Yahoo and fiddly you understand to use the name which is relevant to that request which you made that you want to make upon law. So those are the four things four things in order to unrevealed and fulfill the idea of a song now to to know the names right to look for them and to know them. I'm just reviewing for myself and the viewers. The second thing is to affirm the names of Allah subhanaw taala affirm that they exist. The third thing is to worship Allah subhanaw taala through these names, and the fourth thing is to make dua to him and ask him through using these names. Like Okay,

00:19:31--> 00:19:39

welcome official. We have a phone call from sister Ashley from the United States, I believe from Colorado. I said, Amara welcome sister.

00:19:43--> 00:19:45

Hello, sister Ashley, thank you for being with us here tonight.

00:19:47--> 00:19:48

Thank you for having me.

00:19:52--> 00:19:53

Colorado Springs

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

we have in the studio with us. Mm.

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

Was it tonight? Yeah.

00:20:06--> 00:20:07

Yeah, sister Ashley.

00:20:09--> 00:20:10

Yes, I'm here. Can you hear us?

00:20:12--> 00:20:27

Oh, I can hear you now. Okay. Something happened I should share with the with the viewers last night. Sister Ashley, can you let the viewers know? How did we conclude? For you to be in the air with us tonight? What happened since

00:20:28--> 00:20:34

the email that you sent to me? Can you let them know what happened? I think they they would rather hear this from you.

00:20:36--> 00:20:40

I asked for your help and guidance and converting to Islam.

00:20:42--> 00:21:05

You sent an email last night she sent an email to me last night. And I requested her Skype name, address, and we got in touch. And I actually spoke with her 3am my time this morning for almost maybe 40 minutes, 30 minutes, if I'm not mistaken. And Alhamdulillah she actually took her Shahada

00:21:06--> 00:21:24

with me this morning. And then she raised the idea because she she lives in a very remote area in Colorado. You know, I live in Denver for a long time. She lives almost 35 minutes from Colorado Springs. It's a very remote area, no Muslims around her.

00:21:26--> 00:21:41

And she wanted to share that with the rest of her friends and, and her husband who is so interested in Islam, we can't wait also inshallah to take us further. So I told her, why don't you come and be here tonight? And here she is. So, sister Ashley, are you there?

00:21:43--> 00:22:01

Yeah, I'm here. So can you share with the viewers? How did you come tonight to be in the air and then we'll take your Shahada with with the rest of the viewers. Go ahead. Can you just share your experience in a couple of minutes? And how did you? Yeah, go ahead.

00:22:03--> 00:22:08

I am, you know, as I've told you, in our conversation that

00:22:09--> 00:22:39

for many years, and being a Christian, there was something missing, I just whether it was spiritually or within myself, and I started researching Islam, my husband, spent some time overseas in the Middle East and became very close with a family there that would pray with him. And he got very excited about prayer and spirituality for the first time in his entire life, which was an inspiration to me.

00:22:40--> 00:22:41

And

00:22:43--> 00:22:44

he, when he came home,

00:22:45--> 00:22:48

it was something that we looked into together.

00:22:50--> 00:22:56

Something that we wanted to experience together, but unfortunately, where we live, we didn't have anybody around to guide us.

00:22:57--> 00:23:03

And I was online, going through anything and everything I could and I came across

00:23:05--> 00:23:06

you online.

00:23:07--> 00:23:08

Sorry, I and

00:23:10--> 00:23:17

I sent you an email asking for your help, you know, help me understand or have a better understanding of

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

how to how to convert how to be a Muslim how to,

00:23:24--> 00:23:30

you know, get that relationship with God be one with God that I want so badly.

00:23:32--> 00:23:35

And after talking to you at great lengths, and

00:23:37--> 00:23:48

you explaining things for me, and in a way that I could understand that made sense. It made sense why I was feeling empty the way I was and why

00:23:50--> 00:24:02

Islam was calling me and why I feel Islam as the right choice for me. You know, there's there's a reason for everything. And a lot has brought me through Islam, and

00:24:03--> 00:24:04

I have embraced it.

00:24:06--> 00:24:14

So, you know, something that I shared with you last night, actually this morning, my time which is last night us time

00:24:16--> 00:24:25

that this is one of the happiest moments of our life of someone who you know who calls to Allah subhanho wa Taala pretends to be one.

00:24:28--> 00:24:56

Why? because of two reasons. Because when someone accepts Islam right away, you're so special in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala. Because Allah Subhana Allah Allah will never guide someone unless he deserves guidance. And that statement was shared with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam regarding his uncle Abu Talib, when he was saddened by the fact that his uncle

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

would not accept the kalama from him.

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

At the date of death, Allah Subhana Allah Allah Glorified and Exalted is making it crystal clear to him in nicoleta demon that you do not guide whom you want.

00:25:11--> 00:25:58

You only show them the way we, I show you the way. But we don't guide you, no one guides anybody, but the one who creates the guidance in the hearts of people, is the creator of these hearts. And Allah Subhana Allah is the one who created the acceptance of this guidance in your hearts. And because of the fact that you're so special. Look at the verse in Nicoletta demon, that you do not guide whom you please whom you will, whether kinilaw hyah, demon Yeshua, but Allah subhanaw taala, Glorified and Exalted guides whom He will look at the tail of the verse, a lot of us do not pay attention at the end of the verse, who are who were our alarm bells Bill moved in. And he knows

00:25:59--> 00:26:27

quite well, who deserves to be guided. And and that is why you're so special tonight, sister Ashley, and, and and we're honored and blessed by the fact that you're calling. And you know, since you spoke to me about your husband, I have been making a lot of publications. That one day also, we will take his Shahada because of the way that you spoke about him last night and how he found

00:26:28--> 00:26:32

Allah when he was sent on a mission in the Middle East.

00:26:33--> 00:27:02

With your permission, brother Osama, if we can take your Shahada, and then we can carry on from there. So are you you? Would you like can I do that too? Of course, please. All right. So are you ready? Sister Ashley, can you repeat I know you will. On this last night I'll handle on Skype. But now. Possibly millions of people are watching. And you want to share this with your husband to begin with. I think he's so excited about it. I heard from you and with your friends in Dearborn, Dearborn, Michigan.

00:27:04--> 00:27:50

And I want to let the viewers know, I didn't convert the sister brothers. The sister went through a lot of experiences a lot of Muslims. Don't you dare assume that a non Muslim meets a Muslim at one time and they want to convert that's untrue. And the last stage in the process, but she met her friends in school she she met her friends in colleges. And and that's why it's a mistake to ask anybody. How many people did you convert? We don't convert nobody is she just happened to come across me at the end of her journey. And Alhamdulillah Delica Lula he udma This is the bounty of Allah, Allah bestows it upon whom He wills Alhamdulillah for before the law by the grace of Allah

00:27:50--> 00:28:04

subhanho wa Taala she will share this beautiful piece of news with the rest of her family members and the rest of her friends throughout her life. So can you repeat after me what we repeated last night on Skype. Are you ready?

00:28:06--> 00:28:11

Yes, I'm going to go very slow like I did. Ash. How do

00:28:13--> 00:28:16

I how do I learn? ilaha

00:28:19--> 00:28:21

illa ha Illa Allah?

00:28:23--> 00:28:25

is Allah well eyeshadow.

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

And

00:28:30--> 00:28:32

enough Mohammedan

00:28:34--> 00:28:37

in Canada, Rasulullah

00:28:38--> 00:28:39

Rasool Allah.

00:28:41--> 00:28:44

Let's do this in English, the meanings in English I bear witness.

00:28:46--> 00:28:48

I bear witness that there is no deity,

00:28:50--> 00:28:54

that there is no deity worthy of my submission and worship.

00:28:55--> 00:29:00

worthy of my submission and worship except Allah.

00:29:02--> 00:29:05

except Allah, Glorified and Exalted.

00:29:08--> 00:29:11

reside and exalted, and I be a witness.

00:29:12--> 00:29:15

And I bear witness, that Muhammad

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

that Muhammad, peace be upon him.

00:29:21--> 00:29:24

Is the upon him is the Messenger of Allah.

00:29:26--> 00:29:31

Is the Messenger of Allah and Prophet Jesus peace be upon him?

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

And Prophet Jesus peace be upon him is the Messenger of Allah?

00:29:40--> 00:29:56

Is the Messenger of Allah, Allahu Akbar, Allah Whoa, this is so beautiful. Remember the request that I made from you last night? One one favor? Can you can you repeat it for me, please? one request, please. I you're going to remember that. Can you remind me what I asked you

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

My goodness, I asked, I asked you to make dua for someone who's so special to me.

00:30:09--> 00:30:15

Do I mean prayers or invocation for someone who's so special for me? You remember who it is?

00:30:17--> 00:30:21

Yes, you're your daughter? Yes. Please don't forget that.

00:30:23--> 00:30:33

Sister Ashley. My name is Sam, I'm the presenter of the program. I want to ask you, how do you feel right now after you've taken your Shahada after you've taken the declaration of faith?

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

Whole? Does that make sense?

00:30:40--> 00:30:43

Yep, makes a lot of sense. You know, it feels right.

00:30:46--> 00:30:58

What was the turning point? In the conversation last night when you were talking to Mm hmm. Was that made you feel that? This is what feels right, this is the right decision. This is what makes sense.

00:31:03--> 00:31:05

You know, I hit a turning point.

00:31:07--> 00:31:12

Some time ago, I guess it was just a matter of talking to somebody that

00:31:15--> 00:31:38

could mentor me or, or help me to, you know, somebody to relate to, as he previously mentioned, that, there's, I'm nowhere near anybody that I can go to and ask for advice or guidance in that. So everything I've done has been on the internet, or, you know, what teachings I get in college, you know, in philosophy and whatnot. And

00:31:39--> 00:31:43

just a matter of having somebody that I can actually talk to now

00:31:44--> 00:31:58

and say, Hey, what is this mean? Or, Hey, can you help me with this? Or should I do that? Or, you know, this is why or any any question I may have. Having that availability is what really turned the page for me.

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

And that's, you know, I guess I'm ready, I want to do this, I just need help.

00:32:08--> 00:32:13

Excellent, as the name Kareem said, Really, he was kind of the last part of that.

00:32:14--> 00:32:40

He was kind of the last chain that you needed. Let me ask you. There are some people out there who may be in the same situation that you're in, they've researched Islam, they feel it's right. They know it's right in their hearts and using their minds as well. But maybe you're they're kind of just like hanging on to their old habits or their old beliefs, and they don't kind of know how to get out of it. What message do you have for people who are facing these types of obstacles?

00:32:43--> 00:32:44

You know, the

00:32:46--> 00:32:52

talks about this, or thought about this a lot today. And the best advice I can give on that is

00:32:54--> 00:33:04

what is being put in or on your heart, do whatever it is you need to do, whether going online or going to a neighboring city,

00:33:06--> 00:33:15

you know, to make the connections with the people to help you with this. Because it's not going to be a burden on your heart for no reason.

00:33:17--> 00:33:20

You're not going to feel that emptiness, if it's not there.

00:33:22--> 00:33:26

You know, and the best advice I can give is, is don't stop.

00:33:27--> 00:33:42

You know, it, you know, look in nooks and crannies. You know, lift up the rugs, you know, move rocks, if you have to define that one person you need to find to talk to you. In the last two days, I've emailed probably more people online

00:33:43--> 00:33:46

as I got to this precipice and was ready to make this decision.

00:33:48--> 00:33:50

And that's, that's what you have to do.

00:33:52--> 00:34:26

Thank you so much this Ashley for being with us. And this is an amazing experience for myself for sure. karimova zabe, I'm sure also for you and for the rest of our viewers who are watching tonight, we hope and she'll love it. You stay in touch with us. We wish you the best. And welcome to the family of Islam, the family of more than 1.5 billion people as it stands today. Thank you. I just wanna say what something so quickly that the community members in and Denver directo hate will be in touch with you. You know, they will send you some literature.

00:34:29--> 00:34:43

I have emailed them today, the organization. I'm hitting in Denver, Colorado. It's called the house of monotheism data hit inshallah they will be in touch with you through email on the

00:34:45--> 00:35:00

screen. What kind of message do you have for people out there who are thinking about the deen of Islam maybe who are going through a similar experience as sister a sister Ashley was going through. You know until yesterday. I'll tell you what my advices my advice

00:35:00--> 00:35:16

Have them email chef Kareem or talk to him via Skype. Well, any students of knowledge inshallah he will do the same job but I just want to say that it's a very easy it's a very uneasy, very difficult decision

00:35:17--> 00:35:25

to make that call. And there is a hadith sermon in Muslim dilemma Mohamad Hadith sabara ignore

00:35:27--> 00:35:34

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Allah lesson in Shay Aparna cardellini. And maybe octopi

00:35:35--> 00:35:44

is shaitan. Satan sits in the way of the son of Adam and his way to do goodness, any goodness

00:35:45--> 00:35:57

while the upper then Allah home serata kalamaki Mata Ki the Quran and I will be built in the straight path to hinder them to be an obstacle.

00:35:58--> 00:36:03

Look at the first obstacle cardella who fear political Islam?

00:36:04--> 00:36:14

The first door is the door of entering into Islam entering into submission. Look what shaitan is going to say to you are to see

00:36:15--> 00:36:18

are you going to become a Muslim? Whatever rodina

00:36:20--> 00:36:26

and you leave your religion where Dina Abby, and the religion of your father, whatever Arabic

00:36:27--> 00:36:32

and your ancestors, here you are American.

00:36:33--> 00:36:40

These guys are from the wilderness from the desert. It's a third world, you leave that and you follow that.

00:36:42--> 00:36:50

When you disobey upon this one, you're a hero, upon the fact that you're the hero. In the sense Allah loves you.

00:36:52--> 00:37:12

And you're special, like I said a moment ago, that only those whom Allah knows that they deserve guidance, he will strengthen their hearts, that they would make that difficult step. A lot of times or some a lot of times in America.

00:37:13--> 00:37:24

A brother would come to me in chief, I have that coworker. When I speak to him about God about Allah. He condones everything that I say.

00:37:25--> 00:37:38

He condones, he says it's true. There is only one God. And He is the Creator. Yes. And he is the Sustainer. Yes. And he is the provider. Yes. And there is no one is like him. Yes. He condones all of this. Then I tell him I

00:37:40--> 00:37:43

asked him to come to the masjid to declare his Islam.

00:37:45--> 00:38:23

asked him to come to the masjid to declare his name. He would go the next day. Okay, would you like to come to the shave? Deal? No, no, no, no, no. It's in my heart. It's my heart. That is why the conditions of La ilaha illa Allah. Allah Al Malia Greenwald kaaboo? What does lemo Look at this, the conditions for lighting. A lot of us read that Hadith whoever says that Allah will enter gender. But we don't realize like what they said that the key to gender is La la la la true, but every key has worked to riches, he called it while you quickly move to Malta and

00:38:24--> 00:38:46

now that he is of La ilaha illAllah, under the conditions that you must know it for Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, and the names and attributes is the introduction to this. That knowledge must lead to certainty. Like she spoke, I was certain that Islam is the way this is the only Pure religion that represents monotheism in the face of this earth.

00:38:47--> 00:39:31

Listen, Christians, they believe in a God, but the concept of God is distorted. They believe that God's shared his divinity, with the creative being the creative beings with Jesus in particular. That's why it's okay to worship Jesus. But comes in the third condition, which is what I'll call the acceptance that you come in the air like this, not in a private closed chat room, that alone level that the highest level and is it a community and you stand out there and you say, a shadow Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah then comes in the fourth condition, which is compliance in the holy yet compliance that is suddenly suddenly that is a submission submission. And

00:39:31--> 00:39:57

then besides flossing, Mama had that when he said, the idea of declaring that's what the word she had the copyright right eyeshadow, I can assure her that you're making a declaration, a public declaration that I'm a Muslim and boulia LLP Tabitha Allah. Allah Kelly met in Selma in Benin, our Bina Elena Buddha illallah wa sahbihi wa Tasha buena Baba, Baba mendola

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

Oh people

00:40:00--> 00:40:12

Come to a common ground What was your one Ella and we do not take creative beings as Gods beside him for into our low if they turn away from you for Hulu say what a shadow

00:40:13--> 00:40:17

declare Vietnam Muslim that we are Muslims and almost

00:40:19--> 00:40:19

that's what it is

00:40:22--> 00:40:22

I think

00:40:24--> 00:40:28

something that I always share with with the with the diverts

00:40:31--> 00:40:34

is watch it the first couple of years

00:40:35--> 00:41:02

you get tested so much. Why? Because I go back to Hades suburb never forget about the shape on shape First, the first obstacle at the door and now she accepted Islam shape and he's gonna leave her no probably work harder. No, no, look, look look look how the Prophet said it for our Sahaba Aslam then he would disobey shaitan and he becomes a Muslim, then would he leave him alone No, through maka de la houfy.

00:41:04--> 00:41:12

Then he would sit in his way in the path of what he means what? Change now she's probably going to have to delete some of the

00:41:15--> 00:41:33

friends, some of the old friends I don't know if she has to do this or not Allah knows best. But any revert, you're going to have to find the new zone that nourishes and helps your faith increases your faith. So now you must walk migrate. He's gonna say to you as to how
