Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. How are you guys doing? Welcome to the second episode where we will be exploring Asmat and SIFAT of Allah subhanaw taala the names and attributes of God Almighty. And we have covered some of the most important names, I would argue some of the most use names in the Quran already, in some considerable detail on the first session, I will go on to go further in this exploration into some of the other names in the same exact way as we did in the first time, which is to break this class down into two groups. And everyone's going to ask to share,

00:00:39--> 00:00:46

who we've got here, the premium share for the expert help. And then we're going to come back and everyone's going to,

00:00:47--> 00:00:55

you know, feedback accordingly. So I before I do begin, I just want to say one, one thing, which is just to remind the people

00:00:56--> 00:01:03

the Hadith, who who remembers, let me ask the question, Who Who remembers the the Hadith that we're working on? What is the Hadith that is

00:01:04--> 00:01:12

a very important or ample Hadith, encouraging us to know and live by the attributes of God?

00:01:15--> 00:01:17

Or even some of the or the basic meaning of the Hadith?

00:01:22--> 00:01:26

About the 99 names or what should we do the 99 names?

00:01:27--> 00:01:29

This is not a good sign.

00:01:30--> 00:02:09

But just to jog your memory is we're talking about the problem how Salam told us that God has 99 names. Now we said already that this 99 names is not the upper limit, okay, that there are there's more Allah has more than 99 names. But that meant for her, and this was the song that we're talking about here, which includes but is not limited to, memorizing it, living by it, actioning it and so on. The whole agenda will go into heaven. Okay, well, Allah will permit him it will shows us that this is not just an academic exercise here to say pleases you. We've done lots of academic exercises, we spoke about many philosophers. We've spoken about at the center. We've spoken about

00:02:09--> 00:02:48

overzealous walk away been Tamia, we've spoken about John Locke and Immanuel Kant, sometimes, to the disapproval and dismay of individuals are ultra conservative individuals, anti rationalist in the OMA. And we say that there's a need for that, because we're living in the age of Russian rationalism and intellectualism. So we need to fight fire with fire. But now it's not just about that. It's also about bringing forward the religious discourse. And so this hadith shows us that it's not just an intellectual exercise, it's actually an act of worship itself. Like as we're doing this, as we're going to be doing this in Sharla. Together, we are engaging in an act of worship akin to, for

00:02:48--> 00:03:27

example, praying, praying five times a day or fasting, it's like this is an act of worship in the same genus of active worships as every other act of worship. So this is not just an intellectual stimulating exercise, we should be, you know, purifying our intention spiritualizing ourselves that we are we want to know Allah subhanho wa taala. And the reason why we want to know Allah, Samantha is that's the best. It's, there's nothing better to know. There is no knowledge if I if I brought the best mathematician in the world, the best philosopher in the world, the best economists in the world, the best investment guy in the world, wherever you like, if I brought that person forward,

00:03:28--> 00:03:32

the top guy of every industry, the best thing that they know is not better than knowing

00:03:33--> 00:03:37

about Allah subhanaw taala and about His names and his about his attributes because He is the Creator.

00:03:38--> 00:03:57

He is the Creator of the heavens and the earth and with that, we're going to break the class down into two and group one, which is this group here on the left is going to be looking at with with with the help of the expert share, we're going to be looking at the following names so just make sure you get these already sorted. Out Rahman

00:03:59--> 00:04:18

r Rahim al Bong al Karim al Jawad. Aviv Oof. Al Wahhab. And that's it. Okay, so how many we got here 1234567. You got seven. And group two is going for

00:04:19--> 00:04:40

a Samia elbows here. I'll have it and Majeed al Kabir. So we've got here 1234567 allow the elderly for seven. Okay. So that's going to be what you go through now. I'm gonna give you is that good? Okay, I'm gonna give you 15 minutes

00:04:42--> 00:05:00

or maybe 20 to ask to share with you. You know as in who wants to be millionaire, they say you can ask your friend you can call the ask the audience. You can ask each other. And 5050 That can't be done. But after 15 minutes, we'll come back and we'll see what

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

what people have to offer? Okay, so let's do a feedback session guys. We'll start with group one and we'll start with a very important name. Ar Rahman Maddy tell us about this name

00:05:11--> 00:05:20

the chef mentioned our home is the most compassionate most merciful so it's like learning is referred to me the third person you can say you mentioned now

00:05:24--> 00:05:26

I'm already gonna go

00:05:27--> 00:05:29

so like the most merciful most compassionate

00:05:31--> 00:05:39

as Jeff mentioned, yeah, it's closely related or Allah is like the greatest team and subsequent to say ramen is also close to that level

00:05:41--> 00:06:25

and it's also connected to the name of Allah Rahim which is also done. So our ramen is connected to the essence of ALLAH. And r Rahim is connected to the creation. So in the Essence of Allah is merciful, like the Most Merciful. And then in regards to his relation, relationship to the creation, He's forgiving of them almost towards them. So one is connect to the essence of ALLAH, the other to the creation. Okay, and beware of not because forgiveness is an entirely separate attribute. I mean, it's closely related but he's one merciful towards Yeah, Brahim indicates action. Yep, that one is like an attribute of Allah. So also, like Rahman, obviously derived from Rama. It's on the scale of

00:06:25--> 00:06:38

Falun. So it means something is full with that quality. Beautiful, okay. And the Rahim also is give us some other words in Arabic language, just as you have like, what kind of thing would be masculine means like, full of anger,

00:06:39--> 00:06:49

or charm. So you're full of the qualities and so Allah is full of shebang. Yeah, so someone's full, some full up. Say I'm shebang. Yeah, exactly.

00:06:50--> 00:07:19

And then Rahim is like on the wisdom of fine. So indicates cancer to fail. So you're doing the action a lot. So yeah, Allah is always forgiving. The bad disease. It's quite interesting because it's almost like one of them is Horizont. And one of them is vertical, one of them is horizontal, like in the sense that Allah subhanaw taala is describing something he does instantaneous, because what does an angry person do like he gives straight away when you're hungry, you want to eat straight away, it's kind of this

00:07:20--> 00:07:25

something instant you want. Allah gives us instantly mercy.

00:07:26--> 00:07:44

You see, and but then he doesn't, he just doesn't give it instantly. There's also this kind of horizontal placement of His mercy, which is he gives it continuously. So Allah is giving us any mercy all the time, but he's also giving it to us. He's giving it to us at one time, but he's also enveloped by God's mercy.

00:07:46--> 00:07:53

In the same way as a baby would be enveloped by the womb of a mother, our Draheim actually is connected to this word about Him meaning the womb of the mother.

00:07:54--> 00:08:36

Tell us some Hadith or something about this because this is as many Hadees that is what kind of had these come into mind with this particular and obviously your college candidate you can know you can help if you want to do this just mentioned the last seats where Bob is from. Yeah, where he mentioned also Tala lace in the Hadith, that thoroughly His mercy overcomes his angle. Yeah, beautiful. So the Mercy of Allah is something that is one of his, like, great qualities of Allah. that, yeah, so. And one one, the one I was thinking about is, you know, the very famous Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem, when it when they were there, and they saw the woman that was kind

00:08:36--> 00:09:13

of detached from her child. And when she was detached from the child, you know, she she grabbed the child, all of a sudden, she gave him breast milk, and she was very, very concerned. And I think probably the most expressive and manifests expression of mercy in this dunya is the expression of a mother to a child, that's Yanni. And so the pronouns are solemnise is that Allah arhaan bi by the human hair, the reality that Allah is even more merciful to his slaves and servants, his creation basically servants, then she is or this woman is to her child. So imagine

00:09:14--> 00:09:23

that is a such a deep and important thing to think about, like Allah doesn't want to, I mean, this is this is the kind of God we worship.

00:09:25--> 00:09:43

And we get accused as Muslim people all the time, despite the fact that every day of the quarter or every sort of the Quran with the exception of one starts with Bismillah R Rahman Rahim in the name of God most most most gracious most merciful despite that fact we are accused of being in compassionate barbaric, a

00:09:44--> 00:09:47

lot of people and this is what you know,

00:09:48--> 00:09:50

then they don't understand our religion. They really don't.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

Anything else you want to add on this? I was just gonna say also is a very helpful thing because obviously Allah forgives all sins, you know

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

Are you from zoom Virginia? So like wherever you've done, or wherever you come from life lesson, like obvious some people say you've done X, Y and Zed like how can you be forgiven? Like Allah who forgive you? That's a good point. That's why Allah in the Quran many times will have for Rahim I fought on Rahim or for on the human, whatever it may be, that Allah is forgiving, and mercy. So these things come together quite nicely. But there was something I was thinking about, as well, which was to do with mercy. Which I think I was talking with the shahada as well, actually in a separate conversation, which is that you cannot be merciful, unless you have strength.

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

And this might sound you know,

00:10:38--> 00:10:54

ironic. But if you think about it, for instance, if someone is in prison, you've been slammed up and put in prison. Yeah. Now, the person they also lost the person called the guy that puts you into prison and locks the doors in

00:10:55--> 00:10:58

the warden near the prison warden, whatever it is, yeah.

00:10:59--> 00:11:17

That's how you know, watch have a good season. I don't know this type of stuff. Even though when I went to the Jordan Peterson thing, I just quick joke quickly, just to lighten the mood. I went to Jordan Peterson thing as you guys were there. And I was wearing my suit. So one of the comments. Yeah. And you know what one person said in the comment section was quite funny. So that this guy

00:11:18--> 00:11:24

is wearing a suit. He looks like somebody's going to like a court case for a crime a criminal court case.

00:11:26--> 00:11:27

But yeah, going back to the point,

00:11:28--> 00:11:37

you cannot be merciful, unless you have strength. So for example, if I have the opposite of the power, the power, the ability to exact punishment on some on someone or something.

00:11:39--> 00:11:49

Yeah, I decide, I'm not going to punish them. Like my son, if I say he's a good boy, bad boy. Say for example, if he's a is bad boy, and he'd done something wrong.

00:11:50--> 00:12:28

And decide, Listen, I'm not going to harm the child, I'm gonna you know, I'm gonna be merciful this time to you, I'm going to be forgiving, I'm going to be merciful. I can't. If my son comes to me, the six year old, my son, I bring, he comes to me says, Well, I'm gonna be merciful on you today. And I'll say this, and I don't think you have the capability for that. So, you know, to be merciful, you have to be strong. So, you know, if you're not strong and you're being bullied into something, humbled into something, then you're not actually merciful, you're weak. There's, some people will confuse weakness with Mercy. Mercy is that like, I'm on top of a guy. So just put it this way, I'm

00:12:28--> 00:12:36

in the street, someone comes to sort of find me, I punched him, he goes down on the floor. Now on top of him, I'm sorry, this is a very vivid image. So you know, people

00:12:37--> 00:12:47

do single leg takedown, I do you know, on the floor, I go on top full mount. And now he's on the floor like that. And I say, Look, I'm about to give him the ground and pound by saying, You know what,

00:12:48--> 00:13:06

I'm not gonna do this mercy. But if I'm fighting the guy, and he punches me in the face, and this and that, and it's an even fight, and I'm bleeding and he's bleeding and I say, You know what, I'm gonna be merciful I'm gonna walk away it's not really the reverse was, I was compelled into a situation like that. So mercy a prerequisite of mercy is strength and power.

00:13:07--> 00:13:13

And that's something which goes kind of uncertain and mentioned sometime now. spiritualizing this what would we say?

00:13:14--> 00:13:21

We say Allah subhanaw taala could destroy all of us. Right now. There's nothing stopping Allah from destroying everyone in the dunya

00:13:22--> 00:13:41

like destroy giving you all the worst kind of diseases and not just die but die a very slow and painful and excruciating death. All of us could die like that. We're just suffering and this and that and then finally annihilators. But he's not doing this every second that is going forward in our lives is a mercy from Allah subhanaw taala

00:13:42--> 00:13:57

that he's giving us a chance to worship him to realize the purpose of life this is all a chance we've been given chance after chance after chance at the chance to worship God and this is the mercy of of god what's the next names we've got inshallah

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

Yes, go

00:14:02--> 00:14:07

L bar we Yes, we talked about this one so what does this How would you translate this first of all one What would you say about

00:14:09--> 00:14:10

is one of the

00:14:11--> 00:14:12

drugs from below

00:14:15--> 00:14:18

and we could say is door of goodness. Yeah.

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

Is

00:14:22--> 00:14:24

doing being able to be noble and deeds? Yep.

00:14:29--> 00:14:30

Yes, one that is

00:14:31--> 00:14:32

charity. Goodness.

00:14:34--> 00:14:41

For instance, the one that is Virtus parents is very gracious benevolent

00:14:45--> 00:14:46

and desperate measures Yeah.

00:14:47--> 00:15:00

Just want to add something quickly about either one wants to too much detail. We talked about it more in the in the problems of evil thing, but we said that if we understand God is good, what implication does that have on questions or to do with evil? Maybe you want to do an add to that?

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

Actually, I think it has an implication that Euthyphro dilemma. So the Dynamo is basically is something good because God commands it, or does God commanded? Because it's good? Yeah. So if you believe goodness is part of the essence of God, you could say, you can basically escape the diagram is not a datum anymore. Because we could basically say, God, something's good because God commands it. But it's not arbitrary, because goodness is part of God. Therefore God commands by Essence, good. Yeah, you could say so instead of part of God, you just say it is, is a godly attribute. God, yeah. So quarterly attribute. And that's apart from that. It's fantastic. I think that's exactly

00:15:39--> 00:16:16

right. And that's a very important thing, actually. Because people will think this is a part of the Euthyphro dilemma, which is most threatening, let's say to the cause, if you like, if saying that, Okay, what if you've got the standalone thing which you call goodness, which is independent, then you've threatened idea, there's only one independent being. But if you're saying that this is not actually independent, because it's an extension, if you like, or it's a manifestation, I should say, of an attribute of the of God himself, then you can't say it's no longer acting independent at all, because it's actually a manifestation of God. So that's a very important point. So if there are some

00:16:16--> 00:16:40

of God's attributes, guys, I think it's important to know, which we should try and emulate. Okay, there's some some of God's attributes which we cannot be, for example, and we'll come to it but the word motor capital, but the company is arrogant, when applied to human beings, but with Allah, it means the grandiose because he deserves the grandiosity of the grand jaw, if you like, of that.

00:16:41--> 00:16:42

Having said this,

00:16:43--> 00:17:16

there are some things so what a capitalist is a category of suffer two attributes which you cannot describe yourself with. But there's another category which you can which for example, one of them is being good. Like, for example, since God is good, we should also try and be good since God is merciful. We should also try to put multiple meaning, since God is complete and perfect with all those beautiful names and attributes. We should also try and mimic some of that perfection in being some of the things which is applicable and appropriate for us to be.

00:17:17--> 00:17:24

For example, being good, being merciful and being compassionate. And so this is an important point. What's the next name? You've got?

00:17:26--> 00:17:29

Kerim so who wants to translate that one?

00:17:30--> 00:17:35

Cream shakes is the one that shows generosity.

00:17:37--> 00:17:44

We have a Korean we have a Jew after the difference between the two is the cream is is he shows generosity.

00:17:45--> 00:17:48

Even when he's not asked, what is

00:17:49--> 00:17:54

his generous even when always ask. Beautiful, beautiful

00:17:55--> 00:18:30

and that's and that's really powerful because I was reading some some works a little hazily actually recently, I was just reading the head on Medina, skipping over it. And he was describing and one part of his hair some What the I need a difference between the generosity of Allah subhanaw taala and the generosity of human beings. And I was discussing what the brothers were basically the magnificence if you like the generosity of Allah subhanaw taala is different in so much as human beings. We've already discussed ethical, ethical egoism, psychological egoism, they have a proclivity to a kind of transactional behavior. Now, you might say, I give this I give my kids some

00:18:30--> 00:19:03

toys, so they can be happy. But really being happy goes back to me somehow, there's some transaction, maybe they can be happy with me. So yeah, and directly you get your wife a nice bracelet, nice watch. So she can be happy with me. She can show me love. So she could do something for me. Maybe she could be a nice dinner, maybe we should do some more than this. That's something else for the married guys here that but no, this is the kind of transactional behavior people have, you know, and unfortunately, now we live in the age of transactionality. You know, literally people are paying and give it back, you know, but generosity is used strategically by many people. Well,

00:19:03--> 00:19:39

Allah subhanaw taala, he's no need because he's literally he's got the self sufficiency, the richness, which means that he doesn't need anything else. He doesn't mean there's no trial, no business deal with God. Therefore, when Allah subhanaw, Taala gives, He doesn't give for any reason. That's egoistic, he doesn't give so because the only is to give can worship me. No, it's not because you can worship me from an shafa lumen worship and everyone else can believe. Whoever wants to can disbelieve in that central essence, and physical. When I said to fella, if you're good, then you're good for yourself. And if you are bad, you are bad for yourself, meaning this is not going to help

00:19:39--> 00:19:46

me. My only domain come in this cream. I don't need my provision from you. I don't need any food or

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

whatever. I don't need you to feed me and so Allah self sufficient he gives. This is the most perfect type of generosity, which human beings actually I would argue are incapable of being

00:20:00--> 00:20:16

That selfless. In that sense, it's impossible, I would say, just by virtue of the human spirit and the psyche, it's not possible for us to think in such generous and altruistic terms. And most psychologists, as we discovered, will say the same thing. There's always an egoistic psychological interest. There's something there.

00:20:17--> 00:20:46

We talked about, you know, things like, for example, you know, the woman that's gonna kill herself because the child is there, actually, she couldn't live with herself. We said, if she if she didn't say, save the child, or the guy that jumps on the grenade to save the team, but he does that because actually, he wants to be remembered as the hero. So there's always some interest there. There's something or he wants to be martyred. He wants to go to heaven, whatever it may be, there's some interest there, you remove all of those interests, maybe human being will be some corrupt spirit.

00:20:47--> 00:20:57

Maybe he will be. But there's always that there. And it's not a it's not a bad thing. But it's just the one is completely removed from that fully removed. That was powder. That's the perfect generosity,

00:20:59--> 00:21:19

which no human being can mimic. And obviously related to this, I think we're going to cover it is the word Akram that Allah is not just generous, but he's the most generous. And interestingly, I'm so fantastically I would say, the first name that Allah one of the first names I should say, that Allah introduces us to in Revelation is Allah Karim.

00:21:20--> 00:21:24

Allah Bismillah Bacala. You Hello, hello, hello and seminar ACARA Buka Allah Quran.

00:21:26--> 00:21:37

And it's so well placed because Allah has given us the biggest risk, the biggest thing which indicates his generosity by giving us revelation. And he, he he introduces himself as the most generous one.

00:21:40--> 00:22:10

And he referenced his generosity visa vie, teaching us by the pen, I love the Holika Holika incense, and then I remember Bill column, I love how he taught with the pen. So part of the the richness, and the generosity is that we're able to learn the thing which differentiates the human species fully is the ability to save civilization create civilization through languages and stuff like that. This is part of God's generosity, no doubt about it. Anything you want to add guys on this.

00:22:11--> 00:22:14

I like that you got two more words next to more names left

00:22:15--> 00:22:16

for the receiver or roof

00:22:18--> 00:22:23

or roof. So it's the doing of being mercy being merciful,

00:22:24--> 00:22:36

in a sense, where you might not necessarily like it. So like we mentioned, I could inflict pain, but luckily someone was merciful for you. And then like the surgeon in the eye and sort of know what to do

00:22:38--> 00:22:46

with them. Yeah. Well, let's, let's hold chrome behemoths to feed into that. Yeah. Yeah. So

00:22:47--> 00:23:09

yeah. So this is there's two kinds of opinions I read on this. One of them is that it's the highest form of compassion on a ship. Yes. Should that's what Rama it's like the pinnacle of, of being compassionate. And the other one is this, this thing because of this area and other areas, which shows that sometimes it's compassionate to do something, which can't

00:23:10--> 00:23:25

necessarily like you might not like it. For example, bringing your kids in asleep wicker kids want to sleep in the morning. Yeah, it's time for school kids. Now I want to stay and sleep or I want to go and watch TV, I want to play the games. But then you say no, you're not going to push the game to the next level. Because now you're going to school. Why?

00:23:26--> 00:23:30

Because if you really loved me, you'd let me play my games.

00:23:32--> 00:24:04

Huh? No, but if we really loved you, and we had more compassion for you, we will take you to school because we think even though you might not like it now, you will like it when you're older and you have more knowledge. Like taking a child to a dentist, he's got his tooth is falling off, for example. So you say Listen, son, it's time for you to go to the dentist. He says I don't want to go to the dentist. I'm scared. Why you scared my boy. I'm scared because of the tools is gonna hurt. And all these things. I say listen, if you leave this to you're gonna get gingivitis you're gonna get some problems and you know all about this device.

00:24:05--> 00:24:11

I'm gonna get you're gonna get some issues, right? So he says, What was the issue? So he said, fine.

00:24:12--> 00:24:17

I don't want to do this. So you know, you take him anyway, he's crying is screaming and the tooth comes out.

00:24:19--> 00:24:21

And it hurts him actually hurts.

00:24:23--> 00:24:49

And then the son doesn't realize why you do this to me. And then three, three months later, four months later, five months later, the son is says he Thank you. Thank you, Mum. Thank you, Dad. Thank you for going taking me to the dentist because now I can see my new tooth coming out. And I got strong tooth number four was hurting me. Now it's alright. So sometimes it's a manifestation of even greater mercy to cause pain in the short term for

00:24:50--> 00:24:51

goodness in the long term.

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

And I actually remember reading something for and I'm mentioning him a lot today I was just reading his book. I love has Alia he mentioned this. He says the

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

One who you know the parent who doesn't do this with their kids and his who leaves them to slay stay in the bed and sleep and oversleep and over eat and they don't love their child as much as the one who is disciplined, who is a disciplinarian with their child. The reason they love the most because they're willing to sacrifice immediate gratification from them, loving them in order for the future prosperity. And that's what Allah does with us in this dunya. He puts us through trials and tribulations. He tells us to check each other, even to hurt each other sometimes, but sometimes pain can cause goodness. And that's that's very important thing.

00:25:34--> 00:25:36

So guys, that's all seven. Yes.

00:25:37--> 00:25:40

I will have sorry. Yes. One more. Yeah. Who wants to

00:25:42--> 00:25:58

bestow? Yes. So tell us a bit more about that. So the store was talking about stone gifts upon the creation frequently. And it's one of the names where you require the creation to show that attribute? Yes. I mean, this is exactly right. I mean,

00:26:00--> 00:26:12

the question of whether or not you require a creation, to show the attribute is something of theological discussion, let's be completely honest. Like, for example, can Allah be a creator without being without the creation?

00:26:13--> 00:26:27

If it's him, he has a view that shows him a view that it's like saying, Okay, what is it? Is Allah capable of showing? Like, for example, this way, like, if I if I went on a desert island, or like, you know, Island is complete Island.

00:26:28--> 00:26:33

Now, I'm a very loving person, very affectionate person, very giving person, very generous person.

00:26:34--> 00:26:36

You know that right? Okay, you know,

00:26:37--> 00:27:20

you have this. Now, if you're aware of this, and I'm very late. So now, let's say my kids are not there. My family is not there much of my my friends are not there. Do I stop being all those things? I would argue you don't stop being all those things. And all those things. I'm still all those things. The only thing is I'm not manifesting that quality. So there's a difference between having a quality and manifesting the quality. You see, so Allah has a lot of stops any of his intrinsic attributes, he's no he never stops being a Wahab. He only manifests it or doesn't manifest it. You see, so Allah is always capable, and as part of intrinsic attributes to be bestow of gifts and if

00:27:20--> 00:27:22

you think about our life itself as a gift,

00:27:23--> 00:27:26

how many gifts have been been given by God?

00:27:27--> 00:27:38

Do you know Subhanallah like if you just put it in worldly examples, imagine like for example had a friend Yeah. And you dropped him home with your car? You come into the car here you go wherever you dropped him.

00:27:40--> 00:27:50

Or other you got him a meal. Or you got your your teacher some apple do in America the teacher's pet again, Apple No, I've got no apples but that's another issue.

00:27:51--> 00:27:59

But let's say someone's given a gift. You got a nice gold pen here and other kinds of pen or whatever. What do people say? Say thank you.

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

We say thank you. Is that what you say? Say thank you. Even if you go somewhere you say thank you to the people

00:28:10--> 00:28:43

but imagine we say that we don't say we say thank you to the people what we don't say thank you so Allah guys unbelievable. actually find the sickening some people have lived their lives like that. They live their lives they take everything it's like freeloading, freeloading, you're taking everything you're a freeloader it's like going into someone's house eating taking them to kitchen go there go and measure someone came to your house just please measure someone came to your house your house and this is your house you have the fridge. You have this a cabinet everything. You go inside someone else's house, your guest you're sitting on your sofa, you go do something you see the man

00:28:43--> 00:28:47

munching up your food, you open up your fridge and eating it like like an animal

00:28:52--> 00:29:32

and then drinking the food making himself to sit down watch your TV he's watching your TV. He's watching your TV. And guess what? He has the audacity here he has the audacity is eating the food. He's drinking the drink he's watching the TV. He's enjoying himself and he has the TV stops working listen to this. The the TV stops working for a little bit. It sounds familiar to them. He knows so is TV stops working for level joy he does he starts getting angry. So why the TV still working? As if you own the house? No your house my friend. This is not your house. This is a gift everything you've been given as a bonus. By us you don't want to say thank you for the TV or the food or drink.

00:29:32--> 00:29:34

You want the food you want to drink you want this?

00:29:36--> 00:29:46

What kind of life has that man? What kind of freeloader are you anyway? What kind of abuse are you an advantage? You are leech you are leech. That's the truth.

00:29:48--> 00:29:50

You are an unbelievable person.

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

I don't know what to say about so you see this is I'll give you another I'll give credit to him. Abdullah Andalusi use this example. I'll give him a complete credit. Yeah

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

He says, imagine a husband and a wife here. Imagine this go husband and have a wife. Yeah.

00:30:06--> 00:30:09

He said, Imagine the wife she's spending on the husband.

00:30:11--> 00:30:25

She's not, because it shouldn't be in our religion. The man who gives the money to the woman, the woman, she, you know, she does the things in the house. She does. The kids are listening. But the man who gives them money for the woman, but let's just say, let's just say somebody, the woman gives the money to the man.

00:30:26--> 00:30:41

So the man is taking the money, let's just say he's taking the money that's taking the money putting in his pocket, he's enjoying himself here. One day decides, you know, she's a bit boring this one. So he takes that money that that woman has given him and she calls that woman's friend

00:30:42--> 00:30:44

says, Look, I'm looking to go out for lunch.

00:30:45--> 00:30:58

And he goes out with her friend with the money that she gives him to survive, sustain him, and she he pays for the dinner I said, look, it's on me. It's not actually on he was on the wife, but she was completely object to this kind of behavior anyway.

00:30:59--> 00:31:09

And she's doing this and he's doing a messing around taking it to the club, maybe to get this one with the money of his wife. Now the wife finds out how is she going to feel

00:31:11--> 00:31:32

distraught This is how is this man taking my money and going to spend it with somebody else's let me imagine now we are taking Allah's air, his drink, his food, his everything, even this is a space everything is how is house and we don't say thank you even this is the CIM of ingratitude and the Pimba the height of the apex. You have

00:31:33--> 00:31:43

you know someone who's an ingrate an engraved someone who does not thank anybody does not thank you doesn't thank Allah doesn't have Shaka doesn't thank Allah.

00:31:44--> 00:32:04

And this is the person who Allah who just thinking about it makes me want to push that person to the Hellfire myself. Well, I the only sort of person that's been freeloading. I forget one day or two days, like it's never you've never thought about this. Who created this? Who gave me this? I want to thank this person. I want to push if that person was if I pushed them into the Hellfire myself that can burn ah, screaming?

00:32:07--> 00:32:11

Well, I say you deserve it. I said that the person deserves it. Anyway, let's go to the next.

00:32:12--> 00:32:15

Seven names. On that wonderful note.

00:32:17--> 00:32:26

What names do you have guys? First name that we have? Is a semi? Yes, a semi? Yeah. Okay. So, yeah.

00:32:27--> 00:32:29

So this is an attribute,

00:32:30--> 00:32:41

which says the one who hears all sound, and voices in all of the different languages, and all of the many and various needs.

00:32:42--> 00:33:14

I was talking with the chef and I asked him, does that include our thoughts? So does it mean that when we think of something, is it that attribute that here's what we're thinking? Or is it another attribute? It's a very, very, very good question. Yeah. And Chef said that it's not that attribute is Aleem attribute that, here's that thinking, so we shouldn't get mixed up. In terms of

00:33:16--> 00:33:18

you know, why is that? Why the chef at that?

00:33:20--> 00:33:32

I think it's because chefs chefs chef told me it has to be a physical sound. Yeah. So, look goes back to what do we consider to be something which is susceptible to

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

hearing. So, like, the humble ease with authority is definitely admirable, like this is this is one thing, there's no discussion on, Ahmed made this very clear, that is

00:33:45--> 00:34:05

a salt is something which is have the kalam of Allah for example, or the kalam or speech is half and salt. So you hear that you can hear you can literally hear it. So if we're talking about thoughts or information, this goes into I'll the Allah's hubiera all of those things, why because it is not the same genus.

00:34:06--> 00:34:10

So Allah, He hears a mess more at

00:34:11--> 00:34:38

the things which can be heard, or that are susceptible to this thing of hearing or this attribute of hearing, whereas he knows the malware to the things that are to be known or that he sees the opposite, or the things that could be seen. And so on. So it's the attribute is called is congruent with the, with the genus of the thing that is meant to, you know, be congruent with.

00:34:39--> 00:34:41

That makes sense. Yeah, that makes sense.

00:34:43--> 00:34:59

Yeah, and like continuing on our luck, who's himself a Semia, the hearing and the ever listening. So in terms of spiritual spirituality, like what it means to us, as you know, the people that worship this day

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

to Allah.

00:35:02--> 00:35:16

So the fact that He hears us, we, we, we protect our tongue from sin. So we prevent ourselves from swearing and so on and so forth. But one thing that kind of

00:35:17--> 00:35:26

motivates me now is reciting the Quran in a better and more melodious way. Because Allah Kamara

00:35:27--> 00:36:06

and there's a hadith of this actually men limita, Hannibal, Quran, Felisa Mina, whoever doesn't sing melodiously with the Quran is not from us, Yanni. It's a part of faith to sing melodiously from the Quran. I like what you've said that mashallah was really good, and what you said there about protecting and purifying what you say, like, for example, in Kitab Maha Sabha, or the book of cross examination of a little khazali. In Medina, he mentioned this, he says, Look, the heart has seven members attached to it. And he mentioned for example, what you say, what you see, what you hear, what you do with your hands, what you do with your feet, what you do with your private parts, and

00:36:06--> 00:36:34

when you do what you eat. This is these are the seven things which are related to your spiritual heart. And if you consider the matter properly, you need to purify each of those things. Like you need to do an audit of your spiritual state. And so you need to think about what you're saying. And it's not just swearing. Because It's haram to swear to say the F word to say the S word, to say the B word. To say the G word.

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

There is no do it I've just made up Yeah, but I can make one I can make one.

00:36:43--> 00:37:01

It's not just swearing is backbiting saying something about someone Dequindre Cut a hawk, a Lima Crow, saying something about your brother, which you don't like that's what the definition of Backbiting is slander on. amoeba is saying something which is not true. Now, that's even higher level thing. So speaking about your brother, that which they don't like, speaking bad,

00:37:03--> 00:37:36

saying bad things to people, even during the care of somebody, this is something I have to be honest, I struggle with it. Or to reduce somebody and ridicule somebody, I find it easy to ridicule the people. Now obviously, some people need to be ready killed. Yeah, okay. But some people don't need to be ridiculed. And sometimes when you spend all your time sharpening your sword, you use it with the wrong people. So this is a reminder to myself really, that I need to kind of know when to to because sometimes you can be having an argument with your wife, or with your loved ones and so on. And then you can start humiliating them. Bring you know, the insecurities.

00:37:37--> 00:37:45

Every human being has them say, Okay, well I know what this is. And that makes them very upset. They go and they're crying now or whatever, they're sad. And it's because you ridiculed them.

00:37:46--> 00:38:10

Now, this is one of the things that you know, you'll you'll listen. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that an admiral Jannetty Oh, and Admiral Janet Africa, Lehmann, Amana, Lima Boehner, Lehi what what is likely outcome a Casasola basically the I guarantee Jana for the one who guarantees for me what is in between his two legs and what's in his jaw.

00:38:12--> 00:38:24

So the two main things we need to purify as a Muslim people is that was our mouth. And that was in between our like, he said, The Amal Jana, I have mon I guarantee, which means Allah guarantees.

00:38:27--> 00:38:35

And there's there's many Hadees like this about the Lisanna. But if what you say and what you know, and how that can destroy

00:38:36--> 00:38:42

that what is referred to as how slightly to listen, all the impurities of your tongue.

00:38:45--> 00:38:50

And there's many things like that. So basically, this is I just wanted to add that it was the next name you have.

00:38:53--> 00:39:18

Will see, okay, beautiful, and it's the one who sees all things even if they be insignificant a minute, he sees the black hand on a black stone on a black night. He sees what is below the seventh Earth and what is above the seventh heaven. He is also hearing and seeing of those who deserve recompense in accordance with the dictates of his wisdom.

00:39:20--> 00:39:35

Meaning Subhanallah if we know that Allah so let's ask first of all, on the same token or by the same token that Allah He said, He hears those things which are susceptible to being heard. He sees those things which can be seen

00:39:36--> 00:39:49

and Allah sees everything can when you really think about when we say Allah, let's just take this Yanni step by step. And he these beads, how many atoms are inside these little bits? million atom? I don't know.

00:39:51--> 00:39:52

He sees every single thing

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

on it. You might imagine that was a CCTV camera inside your body. Allah sees your eye inside it, not just was here he sees what's inside.

00:40:00--> 00:40:15

He says your brains, your synapses, how they're moving aside, your heart was pumping. He sees everything, the vein, everything inside, not just outside, but inside. He sees the it's like a camera everywhere. Allah sees everything was in every single one of those pages of his book.

00:40:16--> 00:40:26

If there's if there's a mouse here underneath the Gazecki, I imagined as a world that the universe is too much. And so which means you cannot get away with it.

00:40:27--> 00:40:37

When you own your for example, some people don't even pray any they think, Okay, well, my mom was telling me to pray. I remember I was a guy I used to tutor him as he does some tutoring sometimes.

00:40:39--> 00:40:45

And I saw this guy, his mom told him to pray. He's not praying and he pretends to pray.

00:40:47--> 00:41:10

ostentation he's pretending to pray, but he's not actually praying or he's just pretending he doesn't use it. And then he laughed at the one that is you know, I don't even do well do I just pray like that? Only because my mom tells me I don't care. I don't want to pray. But they think that okay, Allah is not watching them. And then one day that guy something bad happened to me him and he came to messages should have been praying on time. You should have been praying.

00:41:12--> 00:41:28

You see, so when you think Allah is not watching you do everything. And remember the highest form of son is an tabel Allah aka Annika Tara fell into contact and find a rock that you worship Allah as if you can see, you can see him. Because if you can't see Allah, Allah can see you.

00:41:30--> 00:41:31

And so what's the other words?

00:41:33--> 00:41:35

I was gonna add something. Yes, please. Yes.

00:41:36--> 00:41:59

I was gonna say, you know, how Allah sees everything, right? I'm not sure if this corresponds with his attitude with this attribute. But does he know our first person experiences and our First Person feelings? Absolutely. But that's more to do with Allah knowledge, knowledge. Because a lot of these things cannot be they're not susceptible to vision.

00:42:01--> 00:42:13

Things which are subdivision, Allah sees things are susceptible to hearing Allah hears it and things which are knowledge base, Allah knows it. So there's no there's no getting around it. There's no way out. Allah knows what you're doing old times.

00:42:15--> 00:42:16

He knows what you're thinking.

00:42:18--> 00:42:23

So if I'm thinking of bringing this thing up like that, this last night, he only knows.

00:42:25--> 00:42:30

Danny, this is very deep when you know that there's an entity that can do all of that your behavior must change.

00:42:32--> 00:42:54

And when we when we're praying of Allah, we should pray, knowing that Allah is watching us, you know if just this knowledge if you just change this bit of your prayer, everything changes. Because I've kept praying Now Allah is watching me. The whole thing changes is it's a whole different game now. It's a completely different he flipped on his head. It's not just I'm doing these routines going up and down to finish.

00:42:55--> 00:43:02

And the gyms it's not like a gym, it's not like you're doing exercises. No. Now I am watching Allah is watching me do this. I'm speaking to Allah

00:43:03--> 00:43:28

is completely different experience. Allah is watching me. It's a completely different experience. Just knowing that I'm gonna start praying and Allah is watching me if you just have that before you break, everything changes in your prayer. So let's go. Yeah, firstly, the chef was also saying that during prayer, you know, when we say semi Hola, hola, Muhammad. Exactly, yeah, so he uses that name this? Yeah, here's what you have.

00:43:29--> 00:43:54

Whoever praises him. Yeah, that's what the semi means. Allah has heard what whoever praised him. Allah whom? And how would you say that? Then he his praises more than he has? No, he has everything the same? Like the only Allah does not are he has a special hearing for that he has all the same. But he obviously here he's doing a theme of once key is glorifying this kind of thing that's being said here, which is your praise.

00:43:55--> 00:43:57

Okay, what other names have you guys got?

00:44:00--> 00:44:12

Just before I mentioned what I was going to say, just because there was the last two attributes, and it's worth mentioning that I send me I will say, at least I can be cliche or hosting and we'll see that obviously, we're not speaking about a

00:44:14--> 00:44:24

hearing that's like the hearing of human beings. That requires ears and organs in these things that they realize is transcendent above being similar to human beings in that sense, allows,

00:44:25--> 00:44:27

meaning that Allah subhanho wa Taala is

00:44:30--> 00:44:39

he rightfully deserves unrestricted praise, as I guess how I would attempt to try and translate it. He's absolutely deserving of unrestricted unlimited praise.

00:44:40--> 00:44:40

That

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

Posada Salam said that a lot of us Ethan and Alec, and to come up with Anita Hello Nesic that the human being that I'm not able to praise you as you ought to be praised you are as you praise yourself, Allah subhanaw taala praise himself. And some of them say that in when you say Alhamdulillah Hello behind me

00:45:00--> 00:45:13

The elephant lamp if I'm correct as ID and that is referring to that praise that, that praise which Allah subhanaw taala praised himself with that, that is the praise that he is due that this is the praise that goes to Allah subhanho wa taala. And from a spiritual standpoint,

00:45:14--> 00:45:51

is connected, I think to an idea that are dynamic that exists, I think for human beings, which is to recognize that, even if you were to spend all of your time in a bed, and seeking knowledge and praising Allah subhanaw taala, that you would never be able to do it as, as is equal to what Allah is do. And so you're forced into a position of humility. Because no matter what you do, no matter how much effort you put in, it will always be short. And so you worship Allah subhanaw taala with, with with, with a neediness, that you come to Allah, you come in your schedule, in your in your diet, and all these things with a

00:45:52--> 00:46:19

with a sense of complete humility, and reverence, because you know, for sure that even though I'm falling short, you're relying, and it goes back to what you mentioned about the Rama, that you're relying on the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala to be able to take you through that nobody will enter Jannah on account of what you've done. Well only be that of Allah. And so this is, I think that's very powerful and generous. When we say Alhamdulillah, for example, one of the things we obviously

00:46:21--> 00:46:33

think about like, for example, if I'm doing my test b i Say Subhan Allah say three times the cell handle, let's say three times, and I say Allahu Akbar, say three times, for example, yeah, after prayers before you go to sleep, this is what you're trying to do.

00:46:35--> 00:46:48

What I'm saying hamdulillah each one, sometimes I think, personally, I think about each something that Allah has given me, which is good. Like Allah has given me the general blessings. For example, Allah has given me seeing hearing,

00:46:50--> 00:47:10

you know, oxygen, family, kids, children, you know, and I said, Hamza left for each one like this. Yeah. And sometimes I think about something that Allah has, which is just worthy of praise. Like, for example, we are living in an age now, where we are competent commentators of everything, especially sports, art,

00:47:12--> 00:47:14

shows, TV shows, movies.

00:47:15--> 00:47:20

And we say, Look, this guy's really good man. Have you seen how messy plays that was a fantastic performance.

00:47:21--> 00:47:42

You know, or you see him how much he loves the beat, that was too much. This is worthy of praise this thing here, or whatever it may be like, you know, this person or for example, gymnast's they have gymnastics you know, gymnastics someone does some, like double triples. Come on, let's be honest, that's impressive, you know, or someone jumps into the I find interesting someone jumping into the swimming pool like this.

00:47:43--> 00:47:53

I saw some kid jumping into the Zoom pool like it like it was a pro is like four or five year old kid, I was looking, he jumped into zoom pool like that. He started swimming. Like he was Michael Phelps, I think it was his guys. And

00:47:54--> 00:48:31

I was watching something online is Allah and I shouldn't be praising this. And I don't endorse this. But I was watching some allow. So I was actually thinking, this guy is crazy. But at the same time, I had to phrase it in a way the solo climate Have you seen them? With no harness? Nothing. They're going up the thing. I was thinking, Man, this guy's amazing. He's going up and down the mountain without even a rope. One of them tried to do he fell to his death died. One of them went all the way up, like three meters away from the top. And he fell down, he broke his arm. Yeah, everything broke everything. And then he was in hospital for a year or two. And he went back into it again.

00:48:35--> 00:49:01

You know, we see all kinds of things I will say this is Amelie. Amazing. Why? Because we understand that that person has a talent has a good quality. Imagine if we are talking about the most perfect entity, which has full and complete attributes. There's no knowledge he doesn't know. There's no power he doesn't have. There's no such thing that he doesn't see. There's no thing that he doesn't hear

00:49:02--> 00:49:06

that if you even try it, like I'm thinking, How do I even start praising such such an entity?

00:49:08--> 00:49:25

If we praise Messi and Ronaldo, and I don't know this one or that one for the football skills, and it was so amazing how Luca is dribbling it, how are we going to stop praising Allah, that's a different kind of praise. That's a different, that's a different animal altogether. How you can even start with I start,

00:49:26--> 00:49:59

you can start by making look and thinking about just one attribute at a time. I praise Allah for his attribute of knowledge, then his attribute of hearing and all the things we're doing if we could that's it, that's an approach. But when you're doing that, like you said, it humbles the person, what do you even where do you start just standing there in front of Allah, you have that's why the prayer is so important. Because it's saying it's not enough you have to act it out. Showing that you're humble by saying Hamdulillah this is not enough. You literally have to go on the floor and do say it because that's how humbled you have to be

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

In order to give Allah has not even give him his rights, but to try and give it all to you this does luster that is the, the the form you must take. You have to humble yourself in that way. That's what must look like for you to praise an entity like that.

00:50:17--> 00:50:22

So that's I think, a very important one. What was the next word that you went through?

00:50:24--> 00:50:32

The next word is Allah Majeed. Okay. And this means the glorious absolute perfection and dazzling glory.

00:50:38--> 00:50:58

So, what I would say like if I go straight to the spiritual meaning, for me, would be a shows the weakness of the human being. When something is absolutely perfect. Even if you achieve the glory in this world, you're still nothing compared to him.

00:51:02--> 00:51:12

And this spiritually, this helps the human become more humble, and actually protects the person from arrogance. If you think about it deeply.

00:51:14--> 00:51:18

What does that what does magic mean? What does the word come from? Does anyone know? Glory?

00:51:20--> 00:51:32

From what the chef said is, legend means glory. Okay. And so when you think about a loving el Majeed, what does this word checker indicate was like, why is it not?

00:51:34--> 00:51:35

Why is it emoji?

00:51:36--> 00:51:37

Without giving too much away?

00:51:39--> 00:51:42

What like from linguistics because Maria for example.

00:51:44--> 00:51:47

I wanted to double check this because I think I remember reading this at one point.

00:51:48--> 00:51:49

Firstly, just like,

00:51:50--> 00:51:52

away from like, the Amazon, stuff like that.

00:51:53--> 00:51:54

That

00:51:56--> 00:52:17

like you would say, for example, like, if, if a camel has like been out in the desert a lot and like gone to lots of different places and stuff like that. I can't remember like the voting on the verb but you would say that the cow the camel has, like, has done that thing because it's become sort of grand and widen, its expansive. It's like having gone through a lot of different things and whatever. So

00:52:18--> 00:52:20

as relates to Allah subhanaw taala, that

00:52:21--> 00:52:24

his for his generosity or his just like,

00:52:26--> 00:52:41

as I saw that the Bible was mentioning that is the grandiosity of Allah subhanaw taala its essence that it's it's expansive that it's it's beyond it's beyond human beings conceiving correctly, what else is referred to as magic and the Quran as well.

00:52:45--> 00:52:47

Where do you find that for example?

00:52:48--> 00:52:49

I is.

00:52:52--> 00:52:55

Well, Quran Quran Majeed now I'm trying remember?

00:52:56--> 00:52:57

Yeah.

00:52:58--> 00:53:02

True. So far. So yeah, so when when I when I came across that it was saying that

00:53:05--> 00:53:26

that the same this in the same way as like, it sounds like this this expansive sort of virtue that Liquiline is the same in that sense. That in terms of its meanings, that it's sort of incomprehensible they like the so this is well Harlan this seems to be the indication you guys were saying something about file but I didn't overhear this. Now that will do I think it's very good Mashallah.

00:53:27--> 00:53:31

Well, so do you guys want to get through these? What other names have

00:53:32--> 00:53:33

I have?

00:53:34--> 00:53:51

Al Kabir? Okay. Michelle was the most great, the greatest, the perfection of greatness. The one whose essence is the perfection of greatness, the one who is incomparable, the great one whose greatness is beyond measure, the one whose nature is greatness.

00:53:54--> 00:54:06

And what do we say like as you know, on the news, you hear people say, famous phrase, which is associated with terrorism, unfortunately, nowadays, like someone or something happens a lot.

00:54:08--> 00:54:21

And Akbar means the greatest, really Akbar means greater. That's, so when we say Allahu Akbar, Akbar means greater. Because you say, Africa, Zaidan Akbar, Amin,

00:54:22--> 00:54:39

Amara, whatever. Yeah, Zaid is bigger than what Akbar means greater. When we say Allah is Allahu Akbar. We're saying Allah is greater than everything else. It's like an ellipsis. Say Allah. So in our saying, Allah is the Greatest. So before we pray, we say Allah Akbar.

00:54:40--> 00:54:57

We're reminding ourselves that we are about to engage in conversation with the greatest entity, that is, that isn't in existence. Allahu Akbar. And Kabir is once again, it's the same root word,

00:54:58--> 00:55:00

because it is meaning the Greek

00:55:00--> 00:55:00

At least

00:55:02--> 00:55:11

as he is expansive or what there was a usable, good, incomparable, the Great, the most great al Kabir

00:55:12--> 00:55:20

so when you consider that Allah is Al Kabir what should that do to the person from a spiritual perspective? Tarek, what do you think?

00:55:22--> 00:55:27

Well, it kind of puts you in perspective. Like you're in significance

00:55:28--> 00:55:30

compared to the greatness of Allah who is

00:55:32--> 00:55:50

also is thinking about people in history who have appropriated this name like our Kuru, Kuru, Shias people like Cyrus the Great, Alexander the Great. And that's actually a very good that's an interesting point, you know? And then these people whose

00:55:52--> 00:55:57

whose that whose accomplishments are nothing, you know,

00:55:58--> 00:56:10

they're not even a mustard seed anything comparable to anything of Allah. And now we have this, like you said, this, we have people call themselves the goat the greatest of all time.

00:56:13--> 00:56:19

This is a very arrogant, like saying, Well, I if you think about, like, would you mean you're the greatest of all time?

00:56:23--> 00:56:29

Yeah, so yeah, I said, but there's like, 2030 of them. So who's the greatest although competed?

00:56:30--> 00:56:49

Um, how was Ali said something very interesting. You know, he had Parkinson's and stuff. And he used to say, I used to call myself the greatest. But now, like, he says, Allah is the Greatest basically. And what did it take? It took a kind of humbling process, frankly, like, all of us think we're so good at something is our job.

00:56:51--> 00:56:55

And actually, quite interestingly, there's a difference between the Cabal,

00:56:56--> 00:57:07

which is arrogance, or someone who thinks they're bigger than what they are. And our job, which is someone who thinks or self amazed, they think they're so amazing. I was looking at this for my own purposes.

00:57:08--> 00:57:14

But, you know, basically allow job is something which does not require an object.

00:57:15--> 00:57:42

And if, for example, if you look in the mirror, there's no one there, you once again, go to the desert island, you look at yourself in the mirror, and you start doing this and say, Look, you know what, I know no one's here. But this is something you got to appreciate, you know, and you start showing off and, you know, self glac self aggrandizing, for example. Yeah. Like this famous, you know, the word narcissist comes from this Nasus, who literally looked in the water, and he saw his own reflection. And he was so amazed that he's in love with himself. Yeah.

00:57:43--> 00:58:01

You know, our job doesn't our job or self amazement does not require an object. Whereas to cardboard requires an object. So you have to do to cut bralla somebody. So in other words, you cannot do to cardboard or think you're bigger, or better than someone unless there's someone else there.

00:58:03--> 00:58:04

That will be our job.

00:58:05--> 00:58:15

So the cabal is when you're arrogant, arrogant, people think they're better than everyone else, and hustle and bustle it. He said, I've never left my house, except that I thought that the Muslims are better than me.

00:58:16--> 00:58:23

That's what he said. I never I never went out my house. And I thought these people are better than me now. Now, let me just put put things in perspective.

00:58:24--> 00:58:28

Because sometimes in Dawa, it's important for us to put people in their place.

00:58:29--> 00:58:39

It's too late. It's true. And in life, someone gets through to you, someone could disrespects you. Now, the seller had some acquired for that. And as I mentioned this in the book of algebra, antechamber,

00:58:41--> 00:59:08

which is that some attackable man with a capital retain, or even a couple of biomater, capital sadaqa. These are all different core acquerello quotes of the people with the predecessor, someone's being arrogant with you, you actually have to be open with them back because why? As I mentioned, you should be like that, to teach them to humble them. If you really love them. You have to have the intention of reducing their arrogance. For example, I have some let's say I've got children.

00:59:09--> 00:59:10

And I've got children

00:59:11--> 00:59:15

and say, My son, he starts getting rude to me or do to my wife, for example, I'm always just as mum

00:59:17--> 00:59:19

or my daughter, she says something bad to her mom.

00:59:20--> 00:59:34

And she's only nine years old. Let's say pretend she doesn't do she's very good girl. But I'm just saying let's pretend she says something about her. Mum. She says mom, she says you're not in charge of this house anymore. I am. And she starts smashing the plates.

00:59:36--> 00:59:54

And she starts doing this kind of behavior. Now, what would it be if Meeow Meeow the mother came to the child and said Listen, please don't do this. You know, humble humble myself to the child and so looking weak like that. Would that would that be right thing to do? No, it wouldn't be the right thing to do.

00:59:55--> 00:59:59

Why? Because this is there's a difference really between being humble.

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

and being weak. you humble yourself to Allah mentor dolly Latifah hola whoever that hadith says whoever humbles himself to Allah Allah will raise him. But it doesn't mean and I have to criticize. I will criticize some people when I stick people who go to the you know, the corner the Zowie of the masjid leave of life. Yeah

01:00:27--> 01:00:36

and then someone slapped his face and he's like, you know, still with the beads in his hands. This is not a man you're not you're not humble. You're weak. I don't respect you.

01:00:37--> 01:00:40

You have your self deprecating self abasing individual actually.

01:00:42--> 01:00:46

Because what's next, then they're going to open the door and slap your wife you're going to be like,

01:00:47--> 01:00:48

just forgive them Burly.

01:00:49--> 01:00:50

Just forgive.

01:00:52--> 01:00:59

This is not what we want. attackable Marlon was a Kimber Mara tain. Honestly someone tries to do who do mock up more than

01:01:02--> 01:01:11

you know something is going to happen. But what I was gonna say was the only so but having said that, the answer is watch Wow. For Jenna, how can what we need especially

01:01:12--> 01:01:14

lower your wing.

01:01:15--> 01:01:24

To the believers. Allah says that Wafi Jana Hakka Limani Tabacum annulment we need lower your wing to whoever follows you from the believers, Allah saying this to Muhammad Sallallahu

01:01:26--> 01:01:38

Arahama been at home the companions are very, very costly and very compassionate amongst us. We're humble with each other. So I said the difference between an old job and the tech hub is a large job requires

01:01:40--> 01:01:42

a file of OB

01:01:43--> 01:02:22

which means a subject and an object sorry, the motor capital requires a file and of our B and subject and an object. So you got this as I'm being more technical, because what is the process that I'm told is to come borders, bottle Huck wantonness? Which is to sidestep the truth, and to belittle the people. But you can't belittle the people if the people are not there. If you're on a desert island, how can I do Hamptons, you could still do to come out on the hack you can do to Kabul on Allah, which would not accepting Him which by the way, as I mentioned, it is the worst kind of the worst kind of to Kabul, is that a Kabul? Where you think where you're where you're where you're

01:02:22--> 01:02:26

where you are presented with the truth, but through pretension,

01:02:27--> 01:02:35

and arrogance, you decide, no, I'm not going to accept the truth. You know, something is true. And you're saying no, that means you think you're better than the truth.

01:02:36--> 01:02:51

That's the worst. There's nothing worse than that someone knows they're wrong, and they still say no Wallahi this makes me the most angry. Imagine someone lying. That is for example, a mother comes to a child she sees him smashing the tables or making the food or this and that do something wrong.

01:02:52--> 01:03:01

And instead of saying I'm sorry, man for that behavior, he says no, I didn't do anything wrong. Would you mean you didn't do anything? Well, that person highlights this

01:03:02--> 01:03:06

as as the saying goes, you know Walla

01:03:08--> 01:03:18

Walla, allegedly McCarver I located that this person, the only thing that can be used with them is cauterization. Like he needs to be burned. As the Jamaican say, you know, they say

01:03:20--> 01:03:24

they say that. If you do not hear, you must feel

01:03:26--> 01:03:31

like it's the truth. If you don't, I can't tell you nothing anymore. It's done.

01:03:32--> 01:03:38

I was I was reading the book of narcissism. Don't ask me why. It was my wife's book. She was trying to get to know me better.

01:03:44--> 01:03:44

And

01:03:46--> 01:03:59

I was really and it said that this is like a kind of a group of narcissists. The only thing the only thing that will challenge the only thing that that can make them change colors. They cannot change. There's a group of narcissists

01:04:00--> 01:04:19

I don't agree with this by the way, to some extent I do but we'll talk about this is true with the color and with the with arrogance is the only thing that they can actually change these people is calamities. Like some bad nothing happens in our life. Hello, us now you know Allah Akbar. Before you didn't know that before you thought you are

01:04:20--> 01:04:26

for you 14 individual sovereign before you thought you're the man You're the God. You thought you are God.

01:04:27--> 01:04:29

Do this, eat this go there smash that.

01:04:30--> 01:04:32

You see, like I used to work in the city.

01:04:34--> 01:04:46

I'll be I'll tell you some stories. Allah Hey, I somebody told the name of the company, but it was a financial advisory firm. You know, pre IPO companies and stuff like this. And I was there was 300 people on the sales floor. Because you know, you have to do

01:04:47--> 01:04:59

some sales calling and stuff and then you become an account manager. You have to be FSA regulated and Financial Services Authority. And I was I was a kid I was 19 years old that time and the coach was all arrogant culture. So I felt I felt

01:05:00--> 01:05:00

are in

01:05:02--> 01:05:03

everyone.

01:05:04--> 01:05:33

It was like 9090 I will say 97%. white middle class. There was two black people working in one Scottish guy. And I remember one time I asked the guy that was meant to be my my boss and I said to him, Listen, bro, like, when do you think these because they were there for three years. I said when you when do you think this guy the Scottish guy is going to get a promotion? I then asked about the Nigerian girl because that was another black person. Yeah. He was like, Nah, we just we're just bringing him on. As like if you're thinking that with this guy, he's white like you

01:05:34--> 01:05:36

What the hell do you make me

01:05:37--> 01:06:14

as soon as he said I will Allah went home. Yeah, I went, I went, I went home and I said, I'm gonna get myself fired. I said, I'm gonna do something good. I'm gonna I might as well go out with a bang. So I started making humiliation and this and that, and go in and then you know, but I realized that they started to respect me one guy will lay off some Billahi I'm not even joking with you. I humiliated this one woman that she was trying to raise her voice to me i in front of everyone is like an announcement I humiliated. So you thought this and you thought that everyone was looking at him. And then I went into the lunch place, you know, they had little contain. And one of the guys is

01:06:14--> 01:06:54

like, you know, if I had the body like yours, obviously you know, of you. So to all of us, I'd be doing this and I'd be doing that. I said yes. And I think in the same way, meaning these guys some people they will never respect you until you put your foot down. So don't confuse humility with weakness. This is the worst thing you can do. The way age we're living in now, no spiritualist in the history of Islam has ever accepted that believe me, go to khazali go to Al Junaid I can open up any book of spirituality. We don't accept this. However the apostle is you have to be humble that Allah subhanaw taala under believers, that is us. And we have to put away all of our feelings of

01:06:54--> 01:06:59

anger and all these kinds of things. And the names of the names before we finish we've completed

01:07:01--> 01:07:03

together because they're kind of related. Yeah.

01:07:05--> 01:07:12

I love him Angeline harmala. So alliums pious brilliant I love what you're talking about regarding arrogance

01:07:13--> 01:07:28

was early in his Moxa Lesnar. Fisher has my online persona he was saying that I'll leave in languages generally use or it was used to refer to basically those things that were that will be so anything which it would become difficult for you to

01:07:30--> 01:07:52

encapsulate entirely with your eyes for instance, you would describe it as an as Alvine. So you could say for example of an elephant that it was Alim because you can only see it from one side and you can't exactly see all of its its its proportions, and its dimensions, this type of thing. So then he basically from there, he scales up. So he says nothing now with with your mind now, for example, because you can conceptualize more with your mind than you can with your eyes.

01:07:54--> 01:08:09

But with your mind now there's things which you can fully comprehend like I can say no camera, there's a yellow, this building you can kind of pictures off like that was ALLAH is Allah Aleem? Because he is that which you cannot even fully conceptualize with your mind. That's totally cool outside, what will you do to columns? Human,

01:08:10--> 01:08:37

the human rationality doesn't have the ability to fully comprehend Allah subhanho wa taala. And I think it links to a lot what I was saying before about that being like a humbling thing, and for a person to have arrogance in their own heart, like the type of frown type arrogance, you know, where he said that in Lockland, when he said that, you know, another book will honor that he tried to put himself in that high in the high station, somebody who realizes that, oh, you're just a human being and you have to go to the toilet and all these things, but Allah has allowed him in that sense

01:08:38--> 01:08:42

that he's beyond comprehension. And what was the other name as allele?

01:08:44--> 01:08:46

What I found was that it's, it's, it's a name that

01:08:47--> 01:08:48

how would you translate it?

01:08:52--> 01:08:55

Based on what I found, I guess I will translate it as

01:08:57--> 01:09:04

it is not normally a one word translation where it's like the whatever on the PDF for the translator as described as, I'm not sure what the word was,

01:09:05--> 01:09:06

once you can find a cookie.

01:09:09--> 01:09:11

But it was it was the one who was

01:09:12--> 01:09:23

described with all of the attributes are his essence and his attributes are fully perfect, that he's this he that he is the Possessor of all of these descriptors that indicate his perfection.

01:09:25--> 01:09:33

Tabata customer I'll be conditionality will accompany I possesses that, that absolutely Majesty, what what did they use? They use the Nobel it doesn't really transmit that same meaning.

01:09:35--> 01:09:59

But yeah, these are the two these are the two names beautiful. I think we've we've covered enough names for today. And I think that was very, very fruitful, especially relating some of the spiritual aspects because this has to have an impact on our lives. If this doesn't have an impact on life, that becomes a theoretical exercise. And, and we don't want it to be that because this is meant to move us and change us. And with that, I will conclude that inshallah next week we'll be covering the next

01:10:00--> 01:10:02

names in the list are Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah
