Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah. Hear what I had to how you guys doing and welcome to another session probably one of the most important sessions from a content perspective, which we will be covering, not least because we are covering the most important topic which relates to our lives, and also in general, which is the topic of Allah subhanaw taala, God Almighty. And of course, we as Muslims believe that God has certain names and certain attributes. And what the intention with these series is, is to go through intellectual Sierra, going through some of the questions related to the Prophet Muhammad, Salah Salem the questions relating to his life and to his wives, etc, which, of course
will give us
an insight as to his character, or give us an insight as to the main events that took place of his life. But before doing this, what I wanted to do, of course, is introduce us to Allah subhanho wa taala. So what we're going to be doing is we're going to be doing a group session today, we're going to be using using a satis book, which have been translated into English language, very, very basic book. And it's only 100 pages long from, you've all received, I trust the PDF. And we're going to be taking about five or 10 names at a time. And I will give you time to research with your group partners, each and every name, and then we'll go into feedback to the people. And these are three
things which we want. So this you might want to write this down or something. So number one, what the word means linguistically. So we'll take an Arabic word of what Allah's name, what what does it mean, linguistically? What is the mcglue? Louis, if you like, what is the linguistic indicator of that particular word? The second thing we're going to go look at is the theological implications. For example, Allah is referred to as an Malik is the king. Everyone knows this. However, we know that there are things which and Malak the word contains, which is impossible. If you actually let Allah for example, if we say King,
what do we what do we think of if we say, a king in the worldly sense?
Yeah, and what do we think male or female? Male because then the female version is called a queen, or you see? So the point I'm making here is that
there are things which cannot be the case when it comes to Allah subhanaw taala. But then, on the other hand, if we say we strip F, the meaning of all of its contents, then we wouldn't know there will be no difference between the words, or the words would have no meaning. For example, if we say that we don't know what the word King means in relation to Allah at all,
then what's the point of Allah using it, it's, in a sense, a waste of space. And this is a major allegation about the Quran itself, we go that far. So there is what is referred to as our control MOSHTARAK. There is some common linguistic ground between what this word means, how we understand it in this world, and how we understand it in respect to Allah. So this is more a theological point, how we understand this, we're not gonna go too deeply into this, because otherwise it will be a huge session, and it will D scope, the session, all we're going to be looking at specifically is what, for sure, this word doesn't mean I've given you an example here with the Melek. Like, we're for
sure. It doesn't mean it's not gendered. So when we say the king is more of the sovereign, you see, rather than the king in the male sense of that, for that, no chance it could mean that. And then the third thing, which I think is very important, is the spiritual aspects. And so we said, the number one is, the linguistic number two is the theological. And the number three is the spiritual now what do I mean by the spiritual? I was recently reading here Alamuddin ezeli. A very, is a compendious book, but a classic, really, in the works of Islam.
And I was looking at certain, actually, I was reading for my own personal spiritual reasons. The book on arrogance and our job and I'll be honest, I was reading I was reading different books, because obviously it's comprised of different different books, but one of them was a chakra, Karna or thankfulness.
shocker, effect and contentment, yeah, being being content in life. And the other one is the kibble and our job or being arrogant and being self amazed. So for instance, ilhas Ali's approach to the matter is that he'll he'll bring one of the names of God for example, at Jabbar, Jabbar is means the compiler, or Alamosa. cambered which, if you translate it and this is another idea of koderma
stata can how
certain things cannot mean certain things. If you use the word motor capital for for a person, what does it mean? In Arabic language? If I say this guy he is motor capital,
it means arrogant.
Yanni. If I say Look at this guy, this this person is arrogant. What does it mean to be arrogant? It means that you consider yourself have a higher particular station than what you are really what are you really are. And the master says mentor Dalai Lama hula whoever humbles himself to go to law raises him.
But the Kibriya or the grandiosity,
it actually does apply to Allah. So in other words, you, Allah cannot be bigger than what he is, because He's the greatest. So arrogance has a completely different meaning to Allah than, than it does to us as human beings. We are a speck on a planet, in a Milky Way in the solar system. In a universe, which is expanding, and maybe more than one universe, if we saw how insignificant we were.
I mean, you see it, we couldn't even make a case for ourselves. Basically, we couldn't even make a case for ourselves. In that context, for us to think that we are immune or immortal, is,
is a foolish is a foolish and deluded state of affairs. Interestingly, actually, Ilhabela mentioned that
or ignorance, and arrogance are connected somehow, ignorance and arrogance, I never thought of it. But he was mentioning how, for example, if you because of this delusion, it's an interesting connection. Because if you if you think you're bigger than you are, then you actually have a wrong understanding of the reality which is, in essence, a foolish understanding. But the point is, I'm making with the spiritual aspect here. The third one is you take the name of God, and you apply it to your own life, what does it mean to you?
Like, I've just given you an example of two names of Jabbar that Allah has to compel, I compels everyone to do whatever he wants them to do, you can either there's no beating Allah, there's no defeating Allah. At the same time, he is the grandiose
or al multicampus. That grandiose, I'm translating as the grandiose for the sake of Allah.
But we cannot say this about ourselves. How do we interact with the grandiose one, there's only one way of doing it, which is to
interact with humility. That's the only appropriate interaction.
You see. Just like for example, all the people in the world Yeah,
there are people in the world now. The biggest criminal, whatever, when he's in front of a judge, or when he's going into prison, he has to be humble.
If he's about to be shot, he has to be humble because you know, this guy is in charge of you now. Now, we're letting methil Allah Unto Allah belongs the best of examples of the highest exam. So we're gonna be taking these names, I'm gonna give you the names, we're gonna come back and we're going to treat it in the kind of same way as we dealt with some of the names now number one by looking at the linguistic number two by looking at the theological and number three by looking at the spiritual and this should inshallah really solidify our faith. So what I'm going to do is assign so the first group is going to go through the following names
group one, which is you guys are gonna go through the names
let the local milk Yeah
How would you ever got so far 1234 And five
and group two are going for a had a summit.
La Alim l Hobie. Here
and Hakeem is that 512345 years Yeah, I had a summit. Aleem. Ilhabela came.
All right. And obviously, you have to share has a reference. And we're going to give you a good amount of time for this 10 to 15 minutes, maybe 1520 minutes, we'll see how we're getting along. And we'll come back and feedback in Sharla.
Okay, before we feed back, I think there's one or two things I wanted to mention, which of course, there's a Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad wa salam, which is very well known about the 99 names. And the key term using that particular hadith is when when I saw her whoever and the word I saw her, Oh, you saw has many different meanings in the Arabic language. One of them is to memorize so whoever memorizes those words whoever enumerates for example,
while lost power to Allah says that
what do you call it when
into our into our dunya what Allah He led to so whoever if you can enumerate the, the blessings of God, then you will not be able to enumerate them. So to count them to enumerate them to memorize them, maybe even to live by them. We don't know exactly is it 99 names? Or is it more, as the vast majority of scholars say that it's not just 99 labs that even hasn't made the argument
that he had, that Allah subhanaw taala had 99 names only. But the truth is,
there is more than the majority of scholars say there was more than 99 names. And there's a particular door that we make.
Or that process allows us to make actually about Allah subhanaw taala.
That, you know, we call upon you with every name that belongs to you, or that you have concealed within yourself, or that you have hid or you have kept within the I'll vibe with you. So in other words, this hadith has been taken as as actually, if this is not, there are some names that we don't even we're not even privy to, which is a good strong argument against the fact it's only 99 Names of Allah subhanaw taala. So that's just I think, an important kind of thing to mention, because a lot of people do believe
that there's only 99 Names of God and stuff. So we kind of have to unpack that a little bit. Now, let's start with group one. What names did you have? And what are the meanings of those names?
Names, okay. Yep, starting with one is a drop, okay? means he's always, he's the one who nurtures and sustains all of his servants, through regulation, regulating and governing their affairs and granting them all types of favors and blessings.
This is why we use this in frequently in our supplications.
Because we seek, we seek specific nurturing from from God. Thanks very much. That's absolutely correct. That's right. Yeah, yeah. So Rob is also a cause in Arabic, and the robber has been slammed the owner of the songs, obviously, as for climate change the meaning of Tobia, like developing a nurturing uncle Robert hang out and play. And he said,
so yeah. So you can say that there's the there's a meaning here, which is,
like the ownership meaning. And there's a meaning here, which is like Teddy bear, which is, when we say even, you know, modern Arabic was a terribly it is, or even in the Muslim world was a terrible it is when you teach somebody something, when you develop them, when you nourish them, you're looking over them at parents do terribly have a child. So and there's also the aspect of developing that person, intellectually from a knowledge perspective or otherwise. So these are the main meanings of the word, Rob, what kind of theology? Are there any theological debates with this? Well, discussions about this word?
Not really, not really? And what kind of spiritual effect do you think this word has on you particularly like, Have you thought about this? So like, imagine, like your parents look after you, right? Especially when you're young. So like, ever since you've left the womb, your mom has to cough looked after you, like all your life. So if you think about the greatest being who, you know, looks after your mother, and the whole universe and everything, you get that sense of, you know, that was really the one that can often be the real narration. Wow. That's a very powerful spiritual point there. Fantastic. Let's go to a second that name, or should we should we go to group two? First,
let's go to group two. So we will alternate between you two. So we can see different faces, even though we've seen enough of this particular face that's going to speak right now. What's
what's the what's the name you got here? So first thing you can go ahead. Alright. Now, what is what is this what I had, so it was?
Beautiful. Go ahead. Yeah. So I had means the one and only basically, so no partners, does not bigger and is not begotten? He's uniquely one. And yeah, that's basically the beanie, anything to add the ally?
No. Okay. He's covered quite a lot of ground them. And, you know, what I would say is that there's a difference between and we're gonna cover the second one that I had and the white because, you know, there's there's two ways of counting numbers in any language. There's ordinal. And Cardinal, I'm not sure if you've heard this, have you heard? First, second, third, fourth? And, you know, 1234, they're different, right? If you say first second. Anyway, the point is, is that linguistically the word warhead is possible to have a second, third, fourth, fifth. Well, the word I had you can't actually count up like that, just because of his morphological kind of placement. So like I had even
the linguistic construction
is very, very if you
On unique, which is of course, in line with meaning but more interestingly, I think
that the Quran only mentions the word I had one time
which is in social class I don't I don't know any other place where Allah refers to himself as I had except for the socialist loss which is a very powerful point that yeah, the and this this kind of thing happens a lot in the Quran. Allah is very meticulous and sophisticated, very, you know,
precise when it comes to the use of words. So he's saying that he's the one and only but he only is about Himself He only says that about himself one time in the Quran. I don't know of any other place about himself obviously the word ahead is there are many times but about Allah I don't think is there any any other time
spiritual implications for this we spoke about actually going out yet
some spiritual things
Yeah, that you know, Allah says you know in only in my remembrance to heart hearts find peace so it's only in Him and Him alone that we spiritually find contentment
so that's one spiritual aspect of it was done right and you're done is directed towards him and all obedience I mean, an all worship like, Yeah, can I boudoir, er can sustain you alone, we worship when you're alone, we ask for help. So in that sense, it's our sorry, how many focus
is Allah when it comes to worship and when it comes to seeking help? So he's, he's the main focal point. So in different religions, it's Oh, the Holy Spirit or Jesus or Ganesh or this, but with us, it's what's known as a unique in His Oneness. But we as Muslims are unique in our worship, of like, we singled him out in his worship. Luck is very good. I think another thing I would add to this is, if you think about Allah subhanaw, Taala he's had
and we as human beings, you know, we need a zilch we need a spouse,
Allah does not need a spouse. Like the word Zorch has two meanings in Arabic language, one of them is the spousal sense, okay? Male and female. But also can mean a pair, lack of love, for example, darkness and light, you know, that is, in a sense, Zorch is a pair like a synonym and antonym or a thing. And this contrasting opposition. So, what we're saying about Allah is like, um, like darkness and light, because sometimes we were, we will think about Allah, they think of something like,
Yeah, this is not what Allah is. Allah is not some, like, Allah is not some darkness. Allah is not any of the things that you're thinking in your head. He's very, he's so unique to the point where you can't imagine him.
And in a sense, that should render the human being humble, in a way outside of limitation. Yes. Very good. Let's go to the next word. I think that's good. Let's keep on the roll. Because I think we're doing very well. Excellent. Yeah. Allah. Allah. Yeah. So, we will say is the only is the one and only at
the one who is worshipped and the one who is deserved to be worshipped by the whole of scurries, but the whole of his creation, and and that's due to the perfect and beautiful godly attributes that he's describing. And so as far as the sheer luck we derive from earlier, which has led them you know, Avatar, like to worship, Salah is that the object of your worship, so flicks on a spiritual sense, like
Kenny Domingo, on our hyung Jin Hwan, ileap, boom, you have not created any kind of mechanism to worship Allah. So a whole, you know, being of existence to worship Allah. Yeah. And also, I think the chef mentioned that wala, it could be another could be derived from this. So that can be in love. So, and also, like, I remember, in the London year, talking a bit about Vidya and the sense of worship, and how I love could be some sense, the highest form of worship. So yeah, just,
yeah, these are good contributions. I mean, certainly there has been some discussion about whether it's a derived word or jam, it was not non derived. We don't want to go into that kind of discussion now. But we're choosing it as a group, listen to say, this idea that Allah comes from the Arabic word, which means basically, to worship or the thing we just know, something which is worshipped some objects of worship. And so this is an important thing. There's not much theological controversy around this word. Like there's not much discussion. There's linguistic controversy, as we've discussed, what theological controversy not as much
in terms of spirituality, now, this is a very important question, what kind of spiritual impact does it have on you?
Just mentioned so, you know,
if you've ever been to a certain extent is like following some sort of ideology worshipping something, but like he's the one that's really worthy of that, right?
Unlike kind of free yourself when you connect yourself to Allah, and you know, that servitude is in a sense some freedom, it's beautiful. It's not connected to the world. Excellent. Which reminds me of we talked about length was a particular
Zuma. Well, last part Allah says that of Aloha mythological fish or cameltoe *gy sunnah. What did you learn Julian
Salomon zero Julian Hill yesterday we had the metal handle level, like from Laila Moon, which is that Allah has struck forward a parable between two men, one who has multiple slave masters, and one with only one slave master, are these two comparable in similitude? That Praise be to God and that most people will not understand.
So this is, I think, really important, that true.
Spiritual liberty comes from slavery, which is a counterintuitive irony. Nevertheless, it's something which is a reality.
Next word, next name of Allah. subhanaw taala. Summit. Yes, self sufficient. Allah is self sufficient. Everything relies on Allah. Allah relies on nothing else.
And, you know, that's the main meaning of it. Beautiful, excellent. Any theological debate, there was some level of theological debate, if someone remembers that the contingency argument that we see is unnecessary. Everything relies on him for the existence. And he relies on nothing he's necessary, continuing, to be honest. Absolutely. And the thing is, people that don't like the idea that Allah has waged, we will do it because some people have contention with us using this term terminology to say, this is the terminology of the philosopher of the philosophers and so on.
I mean, this is what we're talking about. I mean, this is the closest thing in the Quran to, to giving the same kind of meanings as Wedgwood will do it, which is the necessary existence. And to be honest, from what I remember, reading, the chef can correct me if I'm wrong, but this is something exactly what even Taymiyah mentions, you know, he mentioned it after speaking about, I think it might have been a shock, it was funny, but you after he mentioned, you know, the arguments for the necessary being he says, and this is the meaning which is understood by a somatic cetera.
So the idea of a summit and the necessary existences. There is one linguistic thing which we spoke about the thing. I love the La Jolla, which you want to add to that. Oh, I think was last year, I mentioned this. So even investment in general, over the run that it's been of some it could mean ledger for less. So this, Allah has no sense of hollowness has nothing that's hollow about him. Yeah. So what the controversy was like, something which is hollow require something to there's there's an implication that requires something to fill it, or something, which is a you know, non halal. It's almost complete, in a sense. Obviously, there's an issue here, this like this is should
be now now you're going into the realm of thinking about the creation of stuff, but we're just using these as analogies really, the in the realm of analogy, but some people will be very uncomfortable with that. And if that has a an impact and negative impacts on your spirituality, you don't have to think about these things. But what I'm saying is that at the end of the day, these are some things have been mentioned the books of Tafseer. And, you know, for us to mention them as well here.
But the point of the summit is, I think, a very, very, very, very important thing. Because in terms of spirituality, I mean, what would you say because I think you've got a lot to hear,
I was thinking that he's you know, that we rely on him. So I was given the maybe the analogy like that, you know, your father or mother in the context where
sometimes our mothers or fathers can be quite well, you can deem being harsh with us. But we know innately they love us. And that anytime they might shout to us, where we feel upset, or whatever it may be, we know ultimately, that we have one father or a mother, and we ultimately have to go back to him. So no matter where we go, what we do, or how upset we are with them, or, you know, their love might be shown in different ways, we ultimately run back to him. So of course, we, you know, we need of him. And he's obviously in the aspect of the Father, of course, is contingent with himself, but that it's just a spiritual thing to understand that whatever hardship we're going through, and
how much how much tough it might be good days and bad days. It's that we always ultimately rely on Allah. So what is that in what's what's the spiritual term for that, that we use it? We will summit Summit.
the fact that Allah says, yeah, having trust because with the Father, obviously, we're talking about God Father loves you. But it's that you acknowledge and have trust is that when a father says jump, I know my father. We did that before. No, he would. I have trust in Him. And I let myself go. And ultimately, I realized that my father will catch me and if he doesn't, he knows the reason why he's not catching
This is the point Hey, like, for example, let's say we've all taken a plane ride somewhere, right?
Uh, we've all been maybe under the knife. Most people have been under the knife, I'm just my guess in terms of surgery, yeah,
or the dentist or whatever. And these are very big things in trust someone's life with even going on a bus is a basic, how do you know this guy's not going to go like this and turn and you can kill everyone you know, he's having a bad day, though. The point is that we have a certain level of trust, I have to get on the elevator almost every single day, and have to have a certain level of trust here on the engineers that that aren't, you know, the architects and the engineers that put this into place and are operating this elevator.
So the point is, is that when you think when you're on a plane now and you're trusting the pilot to do his job competently, or the surgeons did his job or her job competently,
the more competent someone or something is, the more trust you should have, the more efficient they are, the less trust you should have. But what if someone that is the most competent and the most powerful, and that doesn't depend on anyone else or anything else? So logic would dictate, we should have the ultimate trust
with that particular entity.
It's funny, I was watching actually Joe Rogan recently, of all people, I think you should make a reaction video on this.
Now there's another there's another segment that you'd have to you know, so you know, not you just learn here. You don't just learn him, but you also do react to the reaction videos.
But I was gonna say is that he was saying something he said, like these Pakistani fighters. Yeah. And said these Pakistani fighters, they he said, it's not just enough for me to think that they are,
have a very particular lifestyle or upbringing. He said, I think it's something to do with their ideology, that they believe that the plan of God is all actualized why they are successful in these contexts. He said that.
And that's the point. Like, if you
open up the doors of possibility, like if you believe that Allah is in charge of everything, and that he is a summit, you know, everything becomes possible, like everything was in Reason, obviously a logical reason. But we are meant to really internalize this idea. And if spiritually become very brave, if you internalize this thing, you become very strong willed, you become very courageous, all these kinds of things are there, and you lose anxiety. In fact, today, one of the modern problems is anxiety.
exact thing about it's a lack of trust, it's a lack of not knowing. And that's very interesting, because, as before, come to Islam, like I would speak to a lot of myself and others, we would, even the fact that I've been such a blessing, the fact that I know, my risk is written for me. It's so profound like we from our culture that we come from you, you know, what I'm talking about here. Is that this make a stereotypical, you know, open a kebab shop. Yeah. And then in Jacqueline before Islam, somebody offers next to you probably, or chaos. Yeah. And it's like, Guys, my competition. In Islam, the concept that we have now it's, I know, if 100 Kebab shops open next to me, my risk is
written for me. And I might sound funny, but the thing is this, to go to sleep, and to know that what is written for you is going to reach you. And that's why some of the scholars said I don't know who they said, if the non Muslims knew what we have, they will pick up arms to fight us with it. They will take up arms to fight you for Yeah, so the point is that to know, because well, you're not going to think of cheating, gambling, stealing, because you are certain that way is going to be and this is the risk. Yeah. So imagine implementing this in different aspects of terracotta. And how peaceful will lay this. You can't describe it only if you live it, you're like, wow. And then you
look at other people who are going through like, let me still let me do this. Let me do that. And this and they're going through all the Haram means because they don't have to local. And as Muslims, we don't really understand what we have. Thank you very much for that. Let's go to the next name. What name do we have? So we have three. Okay, let's just choose one.
Milliken, American money. Okay, go with those two together. So he's described with the attribute of being the master the owner. This was the owner medical Malak. So Malik is like,
the king. Yep. And Malik is like the owner. Okay.
This was achieved describe his grand your glory, majesty, when you put omnipotence and governance. And also, which one describes governance? Do you think of the two man Malik's Malik?
Governance if you think about it? Oh Malik. Why is that sovereignty? Yeah. It's more now who which takes action on his craft. For example, I can own a house. Yeah. When I own a house, I'm not necessarily the governor of this house. Solely like
It doesn't indicate that I own a pen. I'm not going to, you know, start imposing rules on this. But Mel, Malik, and Emily call handle Columbia, I own this pen. But if I have
if we're talking about
if we're talking about the king, which is Malik,
then we're talking about only we're talking about governance. In a sense, we're talking about putting commands and stuff in places. We started off by talking about the king. And I think it's important for me to mention as well that there isn't as much we're talking about an issue in the language. Because like, for example, the default state because someone will say, why is it not Melaka. For example, in English, you've got king and queen, and king and queen are different words completely. In Arabic, you don't have different words for the same meanings. You have Malik and you have Melaka Melaka is queen. However, Malik is king. That is the default form. So if it was changed
to Melaka, there will be questions asked here. Why are we changing it? Why are we making it feminine? Obviously, if you read the Quran as a whole, and if you understand who God is through Jamal Dilla, or adding all the evidences together, you cannot conclude that God is a man, therefore, as a king, so this has really never been an issue. What because there's a translation issue, okay, when you're reading the book, Quran, oh, Islamic texts, some people will ask these questions, I think it's important for us to be equipped with the answer. So we've mentioned the difference between Malik and Malik. And when you know that God is He owns you? What kind of implications does
that have now spiritually, do you think? Yeah, remember, Buddhism from individualism? So if you just imagine like, there's like a slave and a slave master? Yes. I'm like, the slave is awesome. The slave master, I don't know what people make dua for like, don't give me your wife, give me money.
Like, the slave master is under no obligation to do that for the same. Because he owns him. Yes, so imagine Allah, he owns all of us. I mean, we could do all this time, or whatever you're doing, you know, your own your own thing. So Allah is under no compulsion to do anything for you, also,
is hedonism where it's about self centered, what does he think is
just sort of like, it's like,
maximizing pleasure. So that, for example, I think it defeats that because once you acknowledge that you, you are owned, you can't say, I am my partner, you're nobody, you you are owned, you can't come and say I can make these decisions, or I wanted is you can't do nothing, you do what the master tells you to. And you shut up.
People act like they, they own everything. And one of the things that I heard recently is you got you don't even own your own heartbeat, you know, you can't, you can't even control your body. And you only went on what happens with it, or your destiny. And that's the thing. One of the liberal presuppositions, actually, individualistic presuppositions is that what have self ownership, but it's one of the things that cannot ever be proven? How would you how would you prove that you own yourself? You can only axiomatically declare it you cannot prove. But given that there's a creator of you, then, in a sense, even on a capitalistic logic or free market logic, then that creator
should own you, because he's, he owns all of all of the fabric of your existence is due to Him and this fashion due to this argument, because what you said very good point. So for example, an owner has control over the things he owns. Can we say that an owner has control over the things he owns? Yeah, I mean, the
argument if somebody came and said, you know, always you can say like, for example, I
can I say to him, like, it's not uncommon says, I own my body odor. And I cannot say no, you can't stop yourself from urinating, like, for example, stretch to pizza from units, we're not going to the toilet. If you can't do that. How do you have ownership of yourself? When you can't even control that very body that needs to go to the toilet and you can't even stop it? Can we use the argument? If that makes sense? I wouldn't put it in ownership terms. You can use it they say this. They say I own this is my body. I do whatever I like, you know, this is what they say. You can say this. I want. You said that. I don't think there's a problem with it. Yeah. Okay, what's the next time?
We didn't do the next one was the next one. But we can tell you what I've written. I've written something down. Yeah. Okay. So it's Ali, Ali, Ali. Okay. The all knowing
knowledge that encompasses all matters, secret and knowledge are open and closed everything basically. There is no secret from him. And so on us
Air Force basically beautiful, beautiful ally comes from a particular Arabic morphological root file.
In Arabic, there's I don't know, about 36 of them, you know, different morphological roots that are used.
And obviously, it says, The color isn't fun. It's valid, which means that it's a name of someone who doesn't action.
So the you know, there's different forms of isn't fine, and this is fine. So, what that does is it exacerbates the idea of something so you have
an idea already so someone who knows something xylem that's how it goes like someone like me Big Island.
No, Allah is interesting. We'll come to that. Yeah, it's intended to is bolstering the status of Ireland. Yeah. But because it's what you did and all that. But I Aleem is it continues, is or it's exacerbated knowledge. It's not just Ireland, we just because you can be Ireland, but have in theory, you can be Ireland, and have some deficiencies, knowledge. But having, when you say a lolly, it kind of cuts that idea up completely. So it exacerbates. It emphasizes the point of knowledge. And when you really think about this, and this will be my next question about spirituality.
Because there's not that much of a theological debate about this. But in terms of spirituality, when you think about when you really consider like, for example, yeah, I was really interested in the way that look, a man had a conversation with his son
in the Quran,
because he was really trying to put this idea that God is Lally to his son. Like it wasn't just saying good luck. We just sort of theoretically God is I mean, yeah, God is all knowing. But he was really spilling it out to his son by saying it wouldn't. It wouldn't have any scholar lover, FISA, he will soon have an atom's weighed
in on a rock, except that God knows what it is the imageries and the ways that the Quran mentions how God is rallying is a thing of beauty and a thing of stylistic magnificence.
Jonnie for example, layer scotoma, water cutting, there's not even a leaf that falls from a tree, except he knows what it is. Or it's not even a
an atom that's on a rock, except he knows that. What's inside of you. He knows he knows what's outside of you.
So when you spell it out, like the more you think, like, for example, look at this library around us. Yeah.
I was watching, I actually made a reaction video to it. There's this guy, he said that if you read a book, every day for the rest of your life, and do you see that you saw that one? Yeah. He said, You have like five or six shelves that you know. And that's like, 1% of the library that he was in New York. Imagine we're talking about this library here. Maybe he's bought 5000 books here or not? That's a bit of an exaggeration, at least 3000 books, let's say, in the boxes everywhere. 2000 3000 books? Yeah,
it won't, for me to read all of this. It has to be doing it full time. And even then I probably wouldn't read every single thing in as these books. Now I'm saying that. That's just one room, small room like this. When we say Allah knows all of this,
like, he knows what's in my notes, he knows what's in your, in the books, he knows what's in my brain. He knows Oh, it's too much. It's actually mind boggling when you start thinking about that. So there are theological
aspects to this that we can use, like, for example, that there is knowledge in the universe, and that the Creator, the necessary being has to be the own knowing.
Or you can make these arguments I think,
when you were talking about like knowledge of God, the best thing to mention, obviously, is not the fine tuning is classically taught, but the way that we've discussed it before, that there has to be a connection between this and that I think is definitely true to take the person from deism to theism, we have to give these attributes.
And on that point, you've also covered the hacking, right.
Bobby was the you guys that covered the hacking. We did cover Hakeem as well, that's that wasn't Hakeem. And that all was up to you. Which one your involvement for Al Hakim. We didn't really discuss between each other. But I'll give you the definition. Yes. He is the one to Whom belongs the highest wisdom, the one who is always in his creating and ordering. The one who made well, everything that he created. Fantastic. And
we spoke about this a little bit Hekima is what are shaping Mechanicus here or putting something in the appropriate place. If you want to put it one word is appropriately. Yeah. Well, I say what is what's appropriate, what is the word of English language, which is what appropriate mean? To do the right thing at the right
Like, that's what that's what that means, or to put the right thing in the right place. So is it appropriate for someone to be naked in the street and walk around? No, that's inappropriate behavior? Is it appropriate to slap your mother in the face not as inappropriate behavior? Is it appropriate to, to sleep all day in the house and do nothing though that's inappropriate behavior? Is it appropriate to create a car which has no engine as inappropriate behavior?
Volume, actually, interestingly, from why Rumba is the opposite definition, like you're putting something in its rightful place. So I put this chair on top of this thing is inappropriate, because they always like is inappropriately if you think about it, it's the opposite of appropriately. That's interesting. And then when it comes to the argument of the problem of evil, if we say Allah is Al Hakim, exactly, then we have to say that anything that you deem to be evil, you're basically saying that Allah is doing zoom.
Yes, I'm gonna say no, because he's cute. So he's doing what you see as evil. Yes, he seems like he's doing the right thing at the right time. And the point is, is that they can never prove that God is doing inappropriate things, because what is appropriate? They don't have the full picture of something. If you have a full picture, if you don't have a full picture of it, you can never claim that is inappropriate. Does that make sense? It's no, it's actually impossible clean.
If you have wisdom, you the problem of evil is not a problem. So the solution of evil.
Definitely, we should call it. But the point is with Hekima is what I've shaped from a Kenenisa putting something in this rightful place. appropriately. Yes. Now we're saying Gaza Hakeem.
Now, this is very interesting, because but some Zawadi, I was mentioning to you guys, he actually made up he wrote a paper and it's an academic.edu. Yeah, it's where people like academics write their papers and stuff. And I think there's one of the only written like, formal written discussions
about how, against theism because we said, what really differentiates. We know what differentiates atheism from deism? Yes. Like, if you believe in a necessary existence for an Ultimate Creator, or something like that, you can't say you're an atheist anymore. Because what's the point of what what is the difference, therefore, between an atheist and a Deist? a deist, he'll say, Fine, I believe in unnecessary existence, I accept the fine tuning accept whatever.
But I don't believe in a personal God that has created purpose in this world, for human beings, which are meant to be sentient for human beings, which are meant to be sentient. Yeah. So this point here is what we need to bridge. So his argument that he makes is as follows. He says that,
look, the fact that you have, let's say, Fine tuning of the universe, now we've got our own way of discussing the fine tuning, which isn't the sculptor talking about now, which was all about regularity, uniformity, and stability of the universe, not necessarily to what the constants, we've got our own way of talking about that. But the fact that you've got life on this universe, and that the universe is good, through stability, uniformity and regularity, to allowing life to exist in the universe, it indicates appropriately in action, let's just say for the sake of well, indicates that that entity which instantiated those dimensions in this universe,
acted appropriately, at least, to the effect whereby it could have life in the universe. So if we have already established appropriately for this entity, or wisdom, because that's really what wisdom is.
We're talking about appropriate action,
the right action at the right time, the right place, then it's not really a jump to say, Well, is it appropriate? The question would be to create a sentient being, which has free will, or at least has the impression of free will, from a first person subjective experience by saying that we cut off the determinist debate has the impression of freewill,
Yes, and that there's no purpose attached to that individual. And that is the Quranic argument.
Yes. Just just literally to say the words you said just before maybe,
so that the people can watch it and understand how wise would it be for a wise creator, to create without purpose? Exactly. Beautiful. Excellent. Exactly. So we see so this is the idea.
There's many verses in the Quran which indicates this meaning?
Hmm, is a bit
of a holiday, if possible to under halacha. Nicola was the chameleon and that sort of town that Have you have you suppose for yourself, that we have created you aimlessly and that to us you will not return? This is a verse in the Quran. It's not even an argument. It's a question. It's a rhetorical question. Do you suppose that we have created you without purpose and that you to us will not return?
I asked. I will insert a youth
raka sada has the human being thought that he will be
left alone, aimlessly aimlessly.
And then the verses that follow are very interesting because it indicates to this meaning
LM yak will not offer me money Yumna was you know a sperm drop that was emitted. So McKenna Allah cotton for halacha Sawa. Then he became an alpaca which is like something which clings that Allah created and proportionate him Why is Allah connecting these two things, one could say easily, because if Allah was able to guide the process, which you can observe biologically, which means that certain things will move from point A to point B,
then what do you think the guiding God that you can observe guiding things in the universe at an appropriate level, the proportions of which are inexplicable, if one thinks about
is not going to give you guidance in this world, from a teleological ethical and moral perspective.
So the heck out of God is such a powerful, powerful thing, both argumentatively and
and from a spiritual perspective, because spiritually, this is beautiful. I mean, anything that happens, you can see beyond that, like a blood happened, someone dies, your child dies, anyone dies, Yanni you go into prison.
And this is the most powerful thing you can imagine, by yourself, there's a wisdom behind it and God is in charge, I have to have telecoil going back to the point, it really bolsters the idea of telecon reliance on God because not only is he the independent one,
but he's also the wise one, which means that which I'm being tested with, whatever it is, I'm being tested or have been tested with all the traumas that I've been through in life, the traumas they have a purpose
is the atheist that has no purpose for his trauma
is the atheist the materialist, that has no purpose for his trauma at all. The Muslim every single thing has a purpose, which we know like you get hurt then you know you live in a sin of
strangers they found a believer, the Agile polyamorous movement, very beautiful Hadith. Wonders is the affair of the believer in number. Hola. Hola. Hi, Ron. That all is the first good well, they said actually, I hadn't 11 minutes. This is not the case for anyone. Except for the believer in Osama to Surat Shakur, when Osama told somebody I wish I could have good things happen to him. He's thankful if bad things happen to him. He's thankful as well. He's patient and thankful. So this is an important
attribute. Any other names? You've got?
Something Yes. I was gonna say also when we accept to rely on God, when we accept the light, when we accept our weaknesses, I find that the one who accepts their weaknesses the most is the most fit. So let me explain like look at babies, right? They know where they came from. They accept that they're weak. And if you look around them, everyone is protecting them and everyone is feeding. Wow, that's a beautiful Do you see what I'm saying? Did you
know I read it from I read it from a tafsir really? Yeah, it was good. You see what I'm saying? Because they accept it truthfully. Yeah. And if we actually become like babies and accept it truthfully, who knows what those could those lock those confines so the idea like the birds that live you know there's so many is connected you know, it's just having your spiritual snakes
underneath me, benefits of
let's move on I want to quickly rattle through these names
we spoke about this and we said that we won't accept societies
who are we not to you know what the chef has spoken. And and also we said that really this idea of words which are more or cabochons constructs, because you have you know, Ivanka Ed's idea of Madame Madame la you have a turkey but Turkey believe Aafia Turkey will miss G, all these kinds of compound sentences in Arabic sometimes which can have one meaning but we're seeing these ideas where you have to do such and such. Or you can have a lezzy such and such. We're not accepting those necessarily as names per se, because then we'd have a huge list. Not only that, but it doesn't seem
for matters that we've discussed, linguistically plausible. We'll go for the next name.
We've got only one left and that is Al Habib.
It's basically the one who knows everything and from whose knowledge Nothing escapes. So it goes back to what we were talking about earlier. So and if yes,
Any other addition to that? Well, if you look at where the word habia is actually mentioned in Quran, for example, the Betania, Alamo habia, for example, and so the chapter 66 of the Quran,
you'll find is in situations where people act in a way,
which it would seem as if no one's watching them.
Because it has this kind of added implication that it's not just because it's really from Hubbard, like, you know, news is happening. God is he's got a constant update of all the news happening everywhere in the world.
Imagine like, you've got the Indian news. You've got the Bengali news, you have Turkish news, you have the Egyptian news, you have the Colombian news, you have data, Chilean news, you have all this news. And then the local news, then you have the family news. And wow, he has all that information, surveillance cameras, the whole thing is put up there as you call it isn't called panopticon.
Yeah, the whole thing is wired like.
So when you know that like then for me, I would say the spiritual meaning here is less than and tabula like, and the cuts are off and love the content off and
you worship Allah as if you can see, and this idea of Theodore Amara cover
and we'll come to Androcles very important man. Like, you know, when you're alone, if Allah is watching that even just saying that you're like, we don't have to say verbalize. But when you say these things, it changes the game. If you are alone in a place
nowadays, we're living in the age of pornography, for example, let's just be open about the situation. Yeah, you're alone. No one's in the house. Just you. You have your phone in front of you. You know, you have your laptop there. So you might the devil might come to you and say, Listen, is boring is your you've done your Quran, you can do the fight afterwards. Actually.
Why don't you?
Well, let's just maybe, maybe someone will be a bit shy to do this. Maybe? They'll say No, I won't do this. So what they'll do is shaytaan. Maybe say, Listen, just go on. Go on Instagram.
I see us on Instagram. I'll be shocked. I was shocked. I put on Twitter. How many hours of screen time do you guys have? Yeah. It's a question. People were saying 14 hours, 10 hours, 11 hours. Like I was I was just gonna say we're not living in the world we used to live in.
We're not living in a world we used to live in at all, bro. I was watching. I was reading this book called 1000 1,000,000,001 wicked thoughts. I mentioned that in one of the videos I've just recently done. Yeah. It's about what people sexual things people will do. And watch on the internet. So it's like a whole thing. And yes, but one thing was so interesting in the introduction, the first chapter, in fact, the the researcher said
that one people are alone in the 1930s If I'm not mistaken before the Ethics Committee has gotten they put people alone in a room. Yeah. Men and woman and they close they shut the light turn the lights off. Yeah. And they put infrared cameras. Men or women say okay, well, you know, just stay in the room. So we're gonna do 80 to 90% of them reported not just any contact, sexual contact with each other. Now, I just want you to see how much of a paradigm shift this is. If you put men and women in any room and there's lights and people can see each other. Would they do that? Nobody would do that. Otherwise, Starbucks would be looking like a nightclub. That's what what happened like
Starbucks looks like a nightclub. But when you click Turn the light off when people see that you don't even know who you're touching. No one can even can can identify this is the guy this is the guy that's doing it. Everyone event and women are doing pleasuring themselves with a stranger someone that didn't even know and the guy was looking at it from infrared cameras
the obviously this would no way this this kind of experiment could could could fly but the idea is because you think no one is watching that's that's that's bottom line here
so when you add more color to it
like it sorry to say but if you're if you're watching or whatever on Instagrams on your listen that your women here and women like this one a fake breasts and all this coming
out on Twitter Tiktok you know, and see if the brothers you know, you have to go on tick tock. No, probably not. I did it. And then I deleted it on the same night. As I said, Oh chance this is pornography, bro. Like what were you able to go on this? Like no way maybe say with the cookies or whatever they they know my recommendations. I was fresh on the platform. And nowadays, if you're on Tik Tok of you're on Instagram, you get triggered. So you say, You know what, I'm not gonna watch this rubbish. Let me go on a progressive website. Let me watch something. And then you go on the pornography website. And you say, Okay, let me watch. I don't know this. Sorry to say and oh god,
sorry to say I'm sorry to say I'm sorry to say but if this was, I don't know. And then it gets worse and worse, and I forget this orgies. I'm going to start watching insist.
The mother getting involved in the sun. No, honey, this is what happens and it gets worse.
worse and worse and worse and worse, and the guy can't satisfy himself anymore.
And this is a situation which it could have been limited if the person was believed Allah is watching him with anyone watched his stuff if you knew someone was watching, well, that's the one delete, file delete
or do you call it catch or whatever is sent to recycle bin
or non incognito mode or incognito mode? You think that Allah says incognito mode for Allah, Yanni, when you want incognito? Us? Do you think that Allah can also see that
the person who
I don't know I shake my mind about the one who basically does certain acts in his private life, like, for example, when he's in his house.
I don't know the executive, I know that you've just mentioned that there is really severe, for example, that somebody, he, he, he doesn't do that in front of the people, but when it's him in his Lord, and he gets indulged in very, very severe things.
The FBI, I'm sure
will take that out
when I soon, I'm Adam because God will be one. Huge Allah, Allah didn't have admin thorough, please remember that Karl Inami, the Hello Muharram Allah and to echo
that the Hadith, when there were people on the day of judgment will come with, with actions or deeds, like mountain or herd insight, and the law Israel will demolish it completely. So, the pro the Companions article of size, why did that happen? Because he mentioned it harmala When they secretly or they become excluded or in a secret place, and nobody sees them, they will commit sins and things that allegedly forbid upon them. So that there is a Hadith any process I mentioned
is the Hammond Eliza gel camera this the Haman illogical kiboko make that be shy of light. So gel, as though you are shy from
a huge entity within your thrivers.
Transmission there will need you more for some water translations. But just FYI, I mean, this is the kind of things which we you know,
we need to think about the spiritual aspect. Now, when we're talking about hobbies, we're going to think of that word in a different way, especially as a hobby and Raqib
these words in particular, Allah is watching over, he's watching over you right now. You know,
not just in my head, like, oh, sorry, Muhammad, not just in hot things which are haram, but also in the words you bet. So when you're praying now, so Allah subhanaw taala, pray as if Allah, you can see Allah subhanaw taala Oh, he's in front of you.
And you have to pray like this. Because if we're praying, like, or whatever, it's time for prayer and which we all fall into. But if in the beginning of our prayer, we think you know, subhanAllah I'm doing this for the pleasure of God and for the sake of Allah, because Allah he's here. He's a rocky, he watches over me, I have to humble myself to him. It will change the game of your entire spiritual prayer. Like it will be completely different. You will pray your prayer, you will have hello to the man you have the sweetness of Eman, are we a different game completely? You'll feel like you've entered a different religion. And not obviously, my jersey, metaphorically, but you feel
like you're practicing a different religion. It's not just something you know, you think in front of God now. And the week when I'm asking him, you know, he can see me this different feeling altogether. Have you got any other names left?
I think we'll leave it as that because we've done 10 names. We'll do another session or two on this at least just because we need to get at least some of the big names, the important I should say, names to the public. And I think it's been a fantastic session for me I've learned a lot myself. Speaking about Allah is certainly the most important thing one can do. And when you do so, the angels gather around us in sha Allah and, and these kinds of things is in Hadith. So we hope that this blessing this modulus is blessed and people have benefited at home and we've benefited certainly as well. And with that, I'll end here was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
