Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah, but I can't. So how are you guys doing? Welcome to another episode where we could talk about the 99 names of Allah. And we already mentioned in previous episodes that this is not just an academic exercise, this is an act of worship, when we go through the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala, what we're doing really is we're looking at these things which are going to connect us with Allah because if you know who Allah is, then you can love Allah more than you can worship Allah better, then you can, you can know yourself more. In fact, some people used to say, man, Allah fan, EFSA, who out of Allah, whoever knows himself knows Allah. But it's
also the opposite, may not have a lot of fun. So whoever knows Allah really gets to know himself. Today we're going to be doing some new names and these names are going to be very important for us, in fact, especially in Ramadan, and other times when we're seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa taala. And the names are as follows. First one is laughable. laughable, which is translated as the forgiving. So we're going to make it one big group today, okay, and we're going to do like as many names as we can,
in sha Allah. The other one is I'll have four. Okay, I'll have four which is the old forgiving, or the forgiving, I should say, I will have far is the old forgiving will mention what the differences in L how far and L, the four is utter web, the oft returning, and l kudos the holy. Okay. And if we have time, we'll do SLM as well, which is the peace, what does it mean for Allah to be the source of peace, if you like. So these are the names, which we're going to go through Inshallah, we will spend about 10 to 15 minutes, discussing in a group looking at some sources, and then we're going to go through the tripartite classification that we go through,
usually, which is number one, we'll talk about what the name means in the Arabic language. And then after that, we're going to be talking about the theological implications of that particular name. And then after that, we're going to be talking personalize it and make it a spiritual exercise and how this name has an impact impact on our lives.
Okay, so let's, as feedback let's start with that. Laffel. What is this name? What's the translation of this word? What does it mean?
It means the forgiving Laffel
for the forgiving, because as I translated it with you, yeah. In the book, that's how it's translated. laughs will not allow for. Yeah. Yeah. That's interesting as most of you most of them the pardoning the partner. Yeah, that's quite interesting. Eliminate. So how does that translate for them?
Ever forgiving. Okay, I mean, to be I'll be honest with you most translations, I mean, I'm not saying yes or no to anything I get where they're coming from, but most translations for the partner that can if you look at most, almost all the Quran translations anywhere with this fool, or the Hadith translations, whatever they usually translate as the pardoning but it's not a real problem.
Because it has a very similar meaning. What does it what did the what did you read about this name? Laffel?
Well, to be honest with you that there's three three of Allah's attributes, is combined into one kind of paragraph here to be honest with you, and it says, The one who was and is known with the attribute of forgiveness, the one who was and is described as showing forgiveness and clemency to His servants. Everyone is in dire need of his forgiveness, just as they are in dire need of His mercy and kindness. Allah has promised forgiveness to the one who fulfills its conditions. That's brilliant. What did we say some of the differences if you anyone remember is a bit of a higher question but what you guys should we should take it one by one or shall have a question now.
Should we take a one for one by one so allow for was afforded me?
The forgiving, okay, yeah. And what do we know about this name?
forgive the sins. How big deal? Yeah, I mean, does anyone Okay, I'll put it to you. I mean, there's a verse in the Quran. There's more than one verse, which refers to this process. There's,
in the Lucha lay out through a usual Cafe. We have Euro Medina Delica. Remain assured that ALLAH does not forgive that somebody does check with him. And he gives what he forgives whatever else to whomever he wants. This is a key verse comes twice and so there's one verse 48, one verse 110, it comes twice as old as in
there in the law, holy, I feel a usual Cabaye Allah does not.
does not forgive someone that dies, like doesn't say die, but that's someone that's shared with him.
You're all mad Duna Velyka and he forgives whoever he wants. Yeah, for whatever else other than that. Now obviously we know there's another alien sort of Zuma, which is in latacunga form and Rahmatullah in Allaha. Al filled the Uber Jamia, Allah forgives all the sins. Now how do we harmonize between those two things because of one verse, it says, a lot doesn't forgive, except
if you do, shall can the other verse it says, ALLAH forgives all the sins. So how do you harmonize between the two? Do you think?
Maybe the exceptions already been given? So it doesn't need to be repeated the exception again and again? Yeah. Okay. So, what can ALLAH forgive shirk?
Yeah. If you if he wants to, yes, in what case? Would he forget it? Check. If it's minor? If it's a good yes, it's true. If it's minor, if it's a minor shook,
if their pens are sincere, but let's let's talk about what happens, like you do shirk, and you die,
and you are careful and emotional and you die, versus you do shirk, and then you become Muslim,
which is the case of money of this habit, for example, many people reverse converts. So what was the condition? Yeah, the death upon shock, is what we're talking about. So this is if you die upon shell, which is polytheism. And the message has been revealed to you has been sent to you and stuff. And then that's where the forgiveness is not there. There's no forgiveness. And there's no there's actually nobody in Islam.
That that denies that except for one scholar, he's a martingale famously said that, even if someone died, I'm not going to even mention his name, because I don't want people to get attracted to the idea. But even if someone dies upon the shock,
so long as they tried to seek God's,
forgive, tried to find the right religion, then God will, you know, either admit them to paradise or something like that, but this is a fringe opinion. Unfortunately, now, we're seeing this group of people that promote some cool perennialism, which is that all religious paths lead to one this is not Islam says
in the denying the light Islam, the only religion acceptable to allies as Al Islam. This is the opinion of all the five were basically all the people of Islam. Obviously, Allah also says, in the law, what
would you call it? All my love, I couldn't be in Atlanta. batha rasool Allah is not going to destroy people. And so he sends them a messenger, or that the message comes to them basically. So all the people say, Okay, what if you have someone who dies upon shift, but the message of Islam didn't come to them?
Most scholars, if not all of them say that this person we can't say is going to help, or that he's going to be punished by God because the message has not come to him.
But if you do get the message, and now the message of Islam, its entirety, you know, that it's only one God worthy of worship. We've seen about the prophets life, you've seen everything, and you still decide that I'm not going to become Muslim. There will not be forgiveness, actually. And someone will say, Well, this is a very unjust thing to happen. We will say no, this is actually the justice. That's why I lost power dialysis. And so it's never does that does that without after he talks about the punishment of the people of the Hellfire. He said, This is an appropriate punishment, this is exactly what they deserve.
And we've spoken at length, I'm not sure if you guys remember, like, because someone could argue and I've quickly mentioned this. But because this there's lots of questions people have here. You can say, Well, how could it be that someone can be, for example, burnt into hellfire for an unlimited amount of time for doing a limited sin? Because
because the agency you that you're going against is limited in this case? Yeah. So do you remember the argument went from plastic? So we call it we I think that I think it was released in London in a series if you remember. Yeah. So you can look simple have
a tree if you if you got a tree? And you could have baby? Yeah, which, which of those two will be Irish? Okay, and three will be obviously wrong. A cane a baby will be one. Yeah. So let me rewind one step. The premise basically, the premise that the punishment should be commensurate with the crime and duration and time. It's not something even we operate on. Like, I'll give you one example that I use all the time. If someone stabbed somebody else.
Okay, and I killed him, stabs them and kills them? Yeah. How long did it take him to do that?
Few seconds. Now he goes to the judge and says, Listen, are your honor. I stopped this guy. It took me three seconds. Why don't you put me in the prison for three seconds?
It's almost laughable because they say no, it's because they were severity of the crime. It doesn't matter how long it took you. So we say therefore, it's not about the duration of the time. You could have been a Kaffir for 60 years. But it's because of the severity of what you're doing. You are channeling what should have been the rights of God, which are unlimited rights to other than God, even though you will tell
Old clearly that that should not be the case. So the punishment is so
appropriate from that perspective, the only appropriate punishment that you can think of is lifetime of annihilation.
Lay a motor vehicle, he's not going to live there, meaning he's going to be in the state between, it's a complete punishment.
And that is not a that's not against the forgiveness or the mercy of God. That is just in favor of the justice of God.
And that is the appropriate action. Now someone will find this incredulous is the secular is I completely understand, like someone will say this is how can you believe in such a thing in the modern age? This is what they'll say. Because how can you believe such a thing?
Well, also, let's break it down. And this is where the examples came. Yeah. So like, that's why I give the example of the diviner attributes. Because we say for example, if you transgress against, if you transgress against an insect, if there's a little ant here that squash with my hand,
and then then that will happen to locals or police. He says he murdered the animal. By the way, there is a group of people, utilitarians like Peter Singer, he makes the case that killing an animal is like killing a child killing animals. Like he's got this in his books and stuff, people actually believe in this stuff.
Put them to the side for a second. And then tonight, just put my finger on it. Now, you say it's not the same as if I have a baby crying, or two year old chopping his head off.
Why? Because there's something about the baby, which gives it more value. What is it about is to sentience, it's the qualities, the attributes that have child.
So that means to say that if I transgress against an agency with more divine attributes, that the crime is, is intensified, depending upon the object of transgression. So if already we can see with our minds without even having to rationalize or think about it, the difference between the ants been squashed in the BBB has had been cut off. Then imagine the transgression from the baby to the Lord, that the Lord of the heavens and the earth Creator of the universe, with the unlimited attributes,
I think they argue, in this case, you kill the baby. But you know, killing.
That would be a good response. But we didn't say it's about murder. We said it's about transgression.
Because remember what is born the idea of Islamic the idea of oppression is the opposite of the definition of wisdom. The definition of oppression is what thou shalt view it, McKinney's say, volume is putting something in this inappropriate place. So transgression doesn't necessarily mean having to murder it. I mean, sorry to say, but if the baby was raped, sexually molested, you wouldn't think of it any less, Yanni. So if you had an inanimate object, or a fish that I got from the pond, and you open his mouth and did some sexual activity, it's not the same as doing it with a child. So to say,
it doesn't have to be murder. Now, I'm really sorry to say, but I'm saying that it has to be something which you will remember. And this is something you remember, it's not always murder.
Is the case. It's not the same as doing it. Yeah. And so it's not just one act of transgression. In the case of God, what is the appropriate thing to do them worship, because that's the only appropriate action, a servant a slave can have with Allah. That's the only appropriate action. Now if you miss direct that app, or that application
of worship, which means you're you're humbling your entire being to the Lord of the worlds that created and sustaining every second of your existence. Every second, you're redirecting it to a human being who's limited like you're a cow, or a monkey or a statue, which I can slap his head off.
I took my kids to a slum I mentioned, I took him to certain places, or certain stature, I slapped his face. I said, if he could live people worship.
I slept, no laughing, I slept, it gets lovely.
So it's like, imagine this, this statue can't, can't even any people worship it as if it's better than me.
People worship human beings that you can take them in, and they can beat them up in a fight, but you're worshiping them. No. So when you miss direct worship, we would we would argue that that level of transgression is so big, that you can't expect to be forgiven for something like that. Actually. Yeah.
One thing I want to say is that I was reading a tafsir of the Quran called recyling. Note by sight in OC Yeah. And he was talking about this issue. And the way he explained it was I'm just gonna make it was simple, basically. And to the point.
I imagine like, I hit Rahmatullah. That's 10 points, for example, right? That's 10 sins for me. Okay. I killed a baby. That's 90,000 sins for me. I did something else I killed the president.
who's influenced millions and millions of people's lives, change their lives, and so on and so forth. That's like, 2 million points of sins for me. So now when you look at Allah, Who created those people, that he's counting sins for, okay? And everything else in the universe, so put put it like this, it's more difficult for you to be alive than to be dead. So look, he can take your life like that one heart attack, you're gone. But to keep you alive, he has to keep the sun running the moon running the world, turning the stars being the everything in this world, and you reject Him and turn all these things into zero, okay, you say, this is nothing I reject Him. And therefore, what
you do, as a as a conclusion is you're rejecting something of infinite power. Now, when you reject something of infinite power, it becomes an infinite sin. And this the way you have to be punished is infinite. And that's a brilliant
articulation. They're brilliant. And and that's right. At the end of the day, that justifies everything, quite frankly.
And you can't when you're on the Day of Judgment, you can't take your court you can't take your plea to the appeals court. Say I want to honor an appeal against God I want to go to the High Court of Justice against God because God is the most just and he's going to be the judge and we're going to go through some of the attributes
so let's quickly to summarize the names we have last fall which we said the difference between those some of those names so allow for is okay the pardoning some some translate as such, and the pardoning Manasa Aloha for they say is the forgiving now what is the difference between a Laffel and I love Euro. Did we Does anyone remember what we talked about?
yeah, Mafia is what's the difference?
LFOs is more comprehensive. Yeah. And it completely removes sin and mock the rise like snack it comes from, I think the Arabic word for helmet. Yeah, so covering the sin. Exactly. Exactly.
Fantastic. And so Elma, Farah. Sorry Laffel is complete removal is like cleansing bleaching, Jonnie purifying Webawards you're not bleaching take that. But you know, whatever word you want. Yeah. complete removal of the sin.
And when do we make the dough using Allah's name? I feel that for him to pardon us when this
does anyone know that? Yes, yes. Allahumma foon Hibbeler 451 Beautiful. Hola. Hola. In the calf one Kurimoto Bulava. Yes, you can just say without Kadeem, there's two ways. What does this mean? You can translate it better than me. Okay.
I like I like he's coming. It's basically that oh Allah you are the pardoning one. Yes, you are the pardoning one who loves to pardon. So lucky you are the pardoning one who loves to pardon. So pardon me.
You are the pardoning one who loves to pardon. So pardon me.
So this is your first you're invoking Allah with his name of allah awful. That you're say you're admitting something about Allah, you're recognizing his attributes. And then now you're asking, and this is from the etiquettes of diet, for some of the etiquettes of diet is that first you make Salah and maybe you say some words about the Prophet Muhammad Salam, you say it was made of Allah subhanaw taala. Like, for example.
So the fact that it starts with that made of Allah, you start by saying, Hamdulillahi, Rabbil aalameen. And in the middle of the Surah, what do we have the economic Who are you alone, we worship, and you will have, then a dinner Serratos guidance, the straight path. So before you asking Allah to guide you, you're recognizing his glory. And this is from the etiquettes of asking for anything from anybody. And this might be completely unrelated. But if you read the letters of the Zinus, to the British Empire, in the beginning of the 20th century, when they were asking for a state in Palestine, look at the praise that Chaim Weizmann gave to,
which was his name bioflow bow for the letters are still online, you see, he starts his letter, you've done a fantastic job of paraphrasing, like, put Praise, praise. Now this is what we want, is from etiquettes. Anyway, he was a very successful campaign for him. If you want something from someone, start by recognizing something about them, don't just ask someone for help. Like if a small child, but you many of you, if not all of us have children, right? If your eight year old came to you, if you have a child who is eight years old,
and he said and he or she said, Look, dad, or mum, or whatever, you've really, I really appreciate what you've done for us.
You know you've done this 12345
But I just want a pair of trainers.
Isn't that much better than crap? Oh trainers please.
Like which one would you as a person more likely to reciprocate to them? The first one. So this is from the, from the etiquettes of given diet to Allah subhanaw taala that you appreciate you, you understand who he is in the first place, and then you ask for the thing that you want to ask for.
So now the difference between lol format and how far is that? Look, you have a certain name of Allah and then you have different morphological Arabic roots, or is the same what comes from Matt Farah, which as we've mentioned, means to forgive and from the helmet to cover up the sins and so on. But you have two forms that Allah does give you forgiveness, but he gives it regularly, Hoffa is happening all the time. Like you have Allah Allah's Name, alcoholic, he's the creator, and then you have a halachic he is creating all the time. So sometimes it's two expressions of the same mother category if you like, but they're two separate attributes of Allah subhanaw taala. So that's three.
Let's have a little quick rest and do the the last two, and we'll call it a day for today inshallah. Okay,
we've covered two more names, which are what what are the names? We just covered?
Beautiful, local dudes. Good. Those are called Dosia. So we got three, right? Yeah. Okay.
All right. So as was the first one sorry, covering at our web. So what is the major difference? Did we say between Toba and stefarr? Or Mark Pharaoh?
So domains, repenting, foreseen, promising, a lot to not repeat again.
The same you were looking and returning to him alone.
Repentance is the beginning of the life. And so it basically means that you, you keep committing this, you know, you you commit this, you know, you keep returning back to Allah.
This is good. I mean, you just reminded me of something, quite frankly, I just made sure that I'm gonna get this right. You said that.
It's not to attend to this in again. In fact, there are four conditions of Tober Tober just quickly, linguistically. tilba is to come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala is returning to Allah subhanaw taala. Like, for example of a child, yeah, he does something to his mother or to his father that upsets him. Like you have young children, right. Sometimes you get upset of your children and you show them your, your disappointment, right. And then after a while, the child if they have any decency, they'll come to you and they'll, you know, they want to make up with you because they love you. Likewise, if you love Allah subhanaw taala if you truly love Allah, then you can't really live
with yourself knowing that you're against his obedience, that you're doing something that really is against the pleasure of God. So that's going back to Allah in the same way as a child will go back to the parents and try and seek the reconciliation of the parent that we as creatures, creatures are humbled by Allah subhanaw taala. And wanting his Yani forgiveness and his repentance, that will come back to Allah subhanaw taala. We've done something wrong and we all do it. In fact, the professors have told us Kulu, very adamant Hatha, or Halal Hatha in a taboo and that the all of human beings, the children of Adam,
make mistakes, and the best ones who make mistakes are the ones who come back.
And this is, by the way, it's a beautiful part of our religion, which humbles us. Because you, Yanni, you can't go back to Allah unless you admit fault. There are some people that is called hypersensitivity to criticism. They are afflicted with someone gives them a C ha an advocate advice and they say no, they just can't accept it. They deflect it, they project it, they say, No, they push it away. But you've done this to harm me, you've done this hypers In fact, I've seen academic literature on this phenomenon referred to as hypersensitivity to criticism, and they talk about that person doesn't have trait conscientiousness and they link it to all kinds of things and upbringing
and all that kind of thing. The beautiful thing about the religion of Islam is that has these inbuilt spiritual, psycho spiritual aspects, which brings a human being in touch with his own mistakes, his own limitations. And by the way, by doing that, you're breaking your own proclivity to self delusion.
People that are deluded are people that don't they don't
admit their own faults when I was younger. I used to watch these X Factor kit, you know, before PB make Toba now, no pun intended. But well, let's just say I sorted X facts and these kind of things. Some people they just dilute it some people are deluded with all kinds of stuff people have body dysmorphia nowadays. People look fantastic look in the mirror is do you see an Olga staring back at them? Other people, they have delusions, the other side away? So they'll start singing they think that they are I don't know who? Yeah, they're certainly they think that their voice is impeccable. But in reality, everyone else considers it to be a joke.
I see that and I used to be so astounded the fact that people can become so diluted, what a horrible trait to have. And the way to break that trait is to number one acknowledge that you are making mistakes in their life. And this goes back to talks about Maha Sabbath and neffs. And self accountability. If you need to hold yourself to account I'm sorry that I want to upset hassle and full circle, cobbler and to hassle. Hold yourself to account before you are held to account.
So there are conditions of Tober in fact, and the school has mentioned there are four conditions. Yeah.
So number one, you need to stop doing whatever you're doing. So you're doing a sin. Everyone does since Yes, especially for young men nowadays, like seeing something they shouldn't see. And especially in the summertime or something, you see sufficiency you hear something you shouldn't hear, or you're with something you shouldn't be with, you consume something you shouldn't consume.
You know. So you do that. So the first thing you need to stop doing that.
It's a matter of motivation.
If you have a spiritual why, then you'll be able to do this thing. So first thing is to stop doing that. Number two is you have to regret it. Now I say something which I think will lie if you live by this.
You have a good life.
You shouldn't really as a Muslim, regret anything. Don't regret anything because the culture of a lifetime has told us in the Hadith, l movement locally Halal habit, aluminum die for if you call it higher. It says that the strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah, then the weak believer, and both of them was good. And but he gave us advice.
You know, he said, one other piece of advice long hadith is, well, let's tackle low in low and the fall to catoca. Don't say had only I done this and this? Yeah, meaning don't regret your actions. Why? Because this is in a sense of scholars say it is not being content with the with the cousin of Allah subhanaw taala the destiny of Allah Subhana Allah if only I put on money in this program here, or I'll put money there that was calling for you. So let's see, if only I married another woman or another man or whatever it may be. Obviously, it's only watching this.
But you know, the idea is the idea of regret shouldn't really feature the Muslims life. Because this is, in a sense, you don't know what all of us hamdulillah Muslim?
Had you made another decision and done something else you might not be practicing, you might not be a Muslim, which is the biggest blessing we all have. So in reality, having regrets shouldn't feature in your life. Except
if you have committed sins. Yes, you should regret your sins. Nowadays, we've seen the red pill movement
and rotate. He's Oh, Piers Morgan, do you regret such and such No, I don't regret.
He has to spiritually develop because this attitude can permeate our own circles and can disturb us. Because actually, we need to regret is part of the conditions of committing a sin and tobacco repentance to regret.
So yes, we shouldn't regret things which we can't control, or decisions that we've made. But we must regret the things that we've done, which are under disobedience of Allah subhanaw taala.
And that's a humbling process. And whoever you are, we have a big you are, we are following what money you have, you must regret this thing. And if you don't allow humble you, you will, he will do something to you, you humbly you must humble yourself to Allah, before Allah humbles you. So you must regret your sins that so we said removal, you have to get away from the sin number two, you have to regret
this and number three, you have to have a plasm Allah admitted, allow the lie that you don't do that thing, Adam, that you don't do this thing, and I'm not going to go back to it. So he says, here's just another return testing.
Now it can be quite frustrating. Wallahi when some people and we've all been through it, it's a particular sin, that you get frustrated with yourself. And that's a good thing. It's a healthy thing. You do a particular sin, and you're frustrated that you know, what, five days, six days and then you fall into the same sin again, I'll be open with you. One of the biggest things that people have is free mixing with the opposite gender, for example, or listening to certain things or doing certain things or consuming certain addiction, addictive behaviors, pornography for example. Addictive Behaviors are those things which have a grip on you will still find it difficult to go
back. And they keep saying this and that and have an addictive personality.
However, you have to keep trying. How many times has a baby if you ever the children examples are coming up in plenty today. But if you've seen a baby crawl, crawling, crawling, crawling, and then when they get a bit older, you'll see them getting one bipedal into both on both feet and start walking a bit. Now at this point where they're crawling to walking, watch how many times they fall
and the baby has to stand up and he falls down
And then finds another fold again, how many times maybe 1000 times, the baby doesn't really give up. And it doesn't have that rationality doesn't.
It forgives itself enough to continue. But it's frustrated enough with itself to keep trying.
If a baby can keep standing on two feet, after failing the task 1000 times, then we can do the same thing. And you know what, we're never going to be perfect. We're always going to need to do this thing in our whole lives. It's just a matter of levels. So you might be a level one now spiritual level one where the sins are pretty big. Some people do mad stuff. I know some people out there have addiction to stabbing people.
Yeah, me. I've heard of this. For the police officers. I don't know them personally.
I don't have any connection to such individuals. But let's just say I've heard of this. And they they're connected to stabbing in the blood coming and it's it gets through from this thing. Get a rush. Yeah. I can't stop it. I would wish to not do it again. Some people they do Zina all the time, they actually go to prostitutes, I'd say I'm sorry to say any escorts.
And I've gotten emails, I'm going to escort What should I do.
So don't go.
General. I mean, people on that some people on that level, some people on the lower level, which is level two, maybe they'll see something they shouldn't much, they'll do something, they'll say something that they'll be back to their parents, they'll keep getting angry with their mom and dad.
They'll keep swearing some of the people keep swearing. These are levels now, swearing is not as bad as the other thing that we just mentioned. But it's still something you need to fix. So there's levels of spirituality. So you go from level one to level two to level three. And you as you're going and you're trying to get better, you're calling yourself to account. So we said the first thing, the conditions have
to get away from the sin number two is to regret the sin. Number three is to not want to go back to the sin.
And if the fourth thing is if you have taken a right away from somebody to give it back. So for example, if you took someone's money if you stole something from someone and give it back to them. Now this fourth condition might or might not apply to you.
If you've started something to hurt someone's feelings, you're gonna ask for their forgiveness as well. So look, man, I shouldn't I shouldn't have done that. Some people should cowardly to do that now. And it is a matter of cowardice because it takes a real man to say I'm sorry, even if it is to your wife and your children or to what would consider to be your inferiors in rank.
Fingers rack, but you sometimes you have to do we have to go to this listen, because you're demonstrating could behave especially for kids. You have kids, you have to model humility.
You have to model obedience. We say our wives should be obedient and all these things, okay, no problem. But you also have to be obedient.
Any Islamic States you'd have to be obedient to a leader and or general and or lieutenant and all? Obedience is a good behavior traits for everybody. You go and be obedient to somebody show your wife and kids house obedience, go to a chef and sit with him and be shoulder reconstruction done. So the idea is modeling good behavior modeling
these things, which is for example, apologizing to the people that that you so that's Tober. We said Toba was the other words that we said
cudos means we said the free from defect, the one who is free from defect.
Yanni He's highly Millinocket is his completely free from anything. So really, it's perfect. It's perfection. It's divine perfection, really is what the any NACA is any deficiencies, he cannot be attributed to Allah subhanaw taala. No deficiency is attributed to Allah. We don't believe in a god that's deficient in any way.
For example, other people from other faiths, the deficiency of their god is apparent just by the description of him.
started to say God was a arms.
So if having more arms, or a demigod with or whatever, an avatar, and if having more arms was a was was a specific command was a perfect quality than only eight why not? 10? So does God with 10 Arms is more powerful. Or God does a man, a Middle Eastern man, Middle Eastern,
you have people in the Bible Belt, they hate Muslims, but they worship a Middle Eastern man.
Isn't that quite ironic?
You worship Him and you believe He died on cross. This is nuts. This is and the stories I mean, the Passion of the Christ and you see Mel Gibson is under thing I didn't watch this film. But I know about the film. And he was on the on the cross on bleeding and Elijah knows Watani God God, why have you forsaken me? Who is he talking to?
You have a week God and they and they are you know I've been with Christian Standard with them and so on. They actually
boast about this. So I've got humbled Himself. Humility is not for God.
too, he humbled himself to the to the to the people and what kind of thing is that? That is you've got the wrong conception of what it means to be, you're omnipotent god humbled himself. The one who's all powerful was humbled.
This is this Nietzsche by the way the the famous atheist.
He actually refer to Islam and very powerfully Islam as like a manly religion. Obviously. We don't accept that it was mainly for men and feminine for but he said that look at look at what the Christianity he said it's the civilization of Christianity couldn't even
in the Quran, grovel in the dust of what Islam, Islamic civilization left behind. And then he referred to Christianity as a slavish religion, a religion of slaves. If your god humbled itself himself, then imagine what you have to be
humbled Himself you for the humans, a God, an omnipotent one,
in Acts, so when you compare the theory, the theology of the Muslim people to the theology of other religions, you realize that this is the true religion that myself and shows you why that is, that's the only thing you need to look at the concepts of God and different religions. We have a perfect God with perfect features. Your God is a man. Sorry to say your goes on monkey. You've got a statue that can sap and break his neck.
Or break his body.
stop the cow eat the cow.
Because they have the concept of ultra morphism. Exactly. Yeah. Good point. anthropomorphism anthropomorphic touch seed seemed. So that's awesome.
So we did that, right. We didn't Oh, sorry. That's what all of this was about. Salam. All of this was about us.
Yeah, sorry. So
alkalosis? The Holy One. Okay, so the one who is? So make sure that we'll put this as SLM refer? Yeah. And put them every single Elkwood dose is the one who is any impurity does not touch him. In the incorruptible? Is that what they translate as?
That's very nice to interrupt, or any impurity does not. Do you know, it's amazing. Well, light, it's actually if you consider the matter, precisely. And it's not even an argument for God's existence. But let me ask you a question. And maybe it'll come to your mind.
First of all, do human beings prefer state of cleanliness or dirtiness?
that's the default state. That's the default state. Yeah. But yeah, so it's fit right? And in fact,
fit rato Asher, he says, the federal 10 Things cutting the nails and doing this and things that relate to cleanliness. It's something which is my story you
predisposed to but have you ever thought about the reason why? Because if you think about it, there is nothing intrinsically from an evolutionary biological perspective that is averse to the idea of Dirt. Dirt can sometimes be advantageous from a survivalist perspective. Remember if that's what they do, they give everything back to survivability. Reproduction? Yeah. Why is it that the human being is
very concerned with his hygiene, his cleanliness, he likes good smells, all that things why? You can't claim this all for evolutionary benefit. There is something natural that the human beings love cleanliness like to be removed the purification, even though we call detox, and even on issues, which is nothing to do with the physicality of quote, spiritual detox, I want to have a detox, why why are we Why do we find that appealing? Because Allah, he put that in building within us, because that's one of his attributes. He is free from the defects from impurities. So he puts that within the human being as well that he doesn't like impurities, therefore, because it's more of a godly
attribute, as manifest.
And this is Alka dose he is and that's why another kind of understanding of produce is that He is the Holy One, that the angels, some scholars say that the angels they praise bless, or, let's say that they praise God, glorify, I should say, glorify the angels glorify God. So these are all meanings to do with this time and kudos. So just to summarize, what does a four mean?
So let's start with that four year so what does that mean?
So even if we're given what what do we say?
completely wipe away? Or whatever for ever forgiven? Or the Yeah, so that was a cover covering? Yeah. And so far was the difference with a foreigner fall forgiven? Yes. What what is it? Yeah. So now is we're talking about that Allah does that all the time? We does that repeatedly. He does he repeatedly forgive your sin. Then we said was the next one.
What do we say? After returning? So of the so Yeah, he'll turn so we turn back to Allah and Allah turns back to us. There's a description about the web. Here. It says that before you will
You turn to him, he turns to you to,
to soften your holla and beautiful, you know, facilitate you the possibility of you returning back to him, you know, as excellent. That's something and I just want to share personal stories. I was thinking I was reading this. I was reading, I was actually watching a reminder. And the Sheikh was saying, if you are able to,
you know, pray, be grateful for that. And I was wondering, why should I not be able to pray, I want to pray, I can pray. So I was going early in the morning to somewhere to Munich, and then, and have been over in a central space station. They were few drugs, they were actually attacking a girl. They were all. So I tried to protect that girl. And alcohol will spread all over my body, and I couldn't pray for the whole day. There was no place for me to do change my clothes or anything. And so high level manifestation of that if Allah allows me to pray, then I should pray. And I'm thinking how good that can be when possible. Because I was traveling there when there was no place for me to
change my clothes in whatsoever addiction will not allow you. So I mean, some say that alcohol is not impure in itself. Okay.
Maybe I'm just saying the possibility that Allah is blessing our heart around the turn back. Pamela it says the blessing and wish are beautiful.
And you know, what you said there reminded me, also the fact that sometimes we have to be grateful that we are grateful, yes.
Like, the fact that we are allowed to be grateful is is an aspect we should be grateful for. The fact that we have gratitude that we're that we're being grateful to Allah, like we didn't have to be had the HANDLER handler, we're grateful for this grateful, I'm grateful that I'm grateful. It itself is a it's attribute. If you have it, it's something you have. Excellent. What does Yeah, I'm gonna add something to this, you know, you know, do does that happen to you guys? Sometimes you do sin, right. And you feel bad for not feeling bad about what you just did, for example, and that is a very, very like, it's so it's a feeling that you can only live and you cannot explain? Because
you're like, why am I not feeling bad about this like?
This? That's pretty good. You see what I'm saying? You know, I was reading something, which is
completely irrelevant, but some philosophical two pages both changed the philosophical world was talking about higher order, motivation. And this is the idea of willing to will, wanting to one. So having motivations to want something, but to have motivation to have motivation. That is a higher order motivation. The reason why I brought that up is because in many ways, what you're describing is, is a kind of higher order, spiritually, if you think about it, yeah, you're guilty that you're not even guilty, which is higher order stuff, which is a good thing, if you think about it.
And what was the other name that we mentioned?
SLM which we which is free from defect, do measure produces, oh, there's another part of it that Salam is mostly translated to peace. Yes. So how do we reconcile I mean, I think it's because Allah some say, He is the he's the restore of peace. But, as we just went, we went kind of through some of the, what some of the scholars have said and people of color means and the dictionaries, most of them say that it means free from the free from defect, but there is a connection between invoking Allah who is free from defect and getting peace from that like for example, when we finish prayer we say stuff philosopher stuff Allah, Allah into enter Salah will make a Salam, that you are the salam
free from defect, and to you we get peace. We as a result of invoking the perfect one, we get peace and you will not get peace and tranquility except through the invocation of Allah. That could be an intended meaning, the giver of peace, in the sense that we get peace through Allah subhanaw taala has attributes, the perfect attributes of Allah subhanaw taala. Obviously the Quran says Allah basic relay, perform an annual globe that certainly with the remembrance of God the heart find tranquility and rest. And with that, guys, yes, maybe peace is something to do with perfection or when you know, the opposite of peace is war and war is conflict is when things have gone wrong. So peace is a type
of purity. Yes, beautiful, excellent. Please can be also a type of purity, and obviously with Allah subhanaw taala, absolutely perfection as well. With that will conclude hopefully this was a very fruitful one session for you as well as it has been for us. And we hope that you implement them we all implement these divine attributes and we call it Allah with the names and attributes because when you make an art you can make do with the names of God.
Even the Quran states that you know, that to Allah belongs, best attributes for Thou who will be so cool to him with them.
And that's all we have today was salam. Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
