Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa sallam Allah Sha Colombia evil mursaleen Nabina Wahhabi been our kurata Yuna Mohammed Ebony Abdullah en la vida de voz hobby he have to go to sell at the bottom with the slim Mr. Back.
We begin today's episode by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala the Lord of all worlds the exalted the Almighty, we asked him for his help, we ask him to open those of beneficial knowledge for all of us. And we ask him to send his choices of blessings and salutations upon the final messenger, our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of karma,
many brothers and sisters in Islam Today we're going to be discussing best mela Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. So in the previous episode, so currently we're dealing with circle Fatiha and we discussed is the either our will to be let him in a ship on Arrow Jame we went on to discuss the story of Chopin and now we're going to be discussing best Miller which is Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim. So the discussion around best mela is a great one. Indeed. Mmm good to be Rahim Allah in his book,
Jamia Li Camila Quran Allah Karim, he mentions almost around 27 Messiah il 27, deductions 27 rulings in regards to bhasma. So 27 mosyle have been deduced in regards to best manner. So you have the statements and commentary of scholars in regards to this matter. And there are rulings with regards to bhasma as well, that I hope to run through in a very concise way. Now, the scholars are unanimous with regards to bus mela being an ayah from Surah to nemen.
There is a consensus there is no difference of opinion basically amidst the scholars in regards to best mela being an ayah from Surah two naml.
So the idea in the home in school a man we're in who Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, so there is no difference of opinion with regards to best Mullah being an ayah from Surah to nemen. Now with regards to the other students, now you have Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem at the beginning of other sources. So with regards to this, you have three mainstream opinions amidst the scholars opinion number one is that best mela is not considered and I have sortal Fatiha all the other souls. So opinion number one Bismillah Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim is not is not considered and I have sort of to refer to her or the other surah is at the beginning, but as for sort of to naml Yes, it is
considered and at the end of the day, the Bismillah R Rahman Rahim is within the surah but with regards to the other surah is at the beginning of every surah including sootel Fatiha opinion number one states in other words, the scholars of that opinion they opine that best Mullah is not considered an IM opinion. Number two is that mess mela is considered an ayah of every surah including Fatiha of every surah except for surah Bara Surah Tauba Surah Tauba except for surah to Toba every other surah including SoTL Fatiha Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem is considered an eye. Opinion number three is that Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim In other words, the best mela is only considered
an eye of social Fatiha only certified master of two nominees unanimous like I keep repeating that with regards to the other sources. The third opinion states that it is only part of social fatca and it is not considered an idea of the other sources.
Now, as you can see, there is a strong difference of opinion and it's the three mainstream views that we just shared.
Now little bit about if they laugh, because at the end of the day, if you look at the scholars of each of these mainstream views, they have their
there are evidences to prove or to justify their stances.
So within the deen when there is a difference of opinion and you have to understand that the difference of opinion only occurs in matters that are open to interpretation.
And when this difference of opinion is based on sincerity in finding the truth and in finding proper knowledge, then it is truly a mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala. This this villa, this difference of opinion this differing amidst the scholars is considered a a blessing, a boon from Allah subhanho wa Taala, something that he as a Virgil has gifted us with.
And this this process of sincere scholarly deduction, scholarly research is called EGT hat.
There was once an individual who goes to the great scholar Mr. Mohammed bin Hanbal, for him a whole lot.
and tells him that a book had been written, called the book of differences. In other words, the book of differences of opinion. And then, in Mohammed Rahim, Allah goes on to respond by saying that the book should have been called the book of flexibility, because given the days a difference of opinion, it's from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. There is flexibility in place
through this. And interestingly, if you were to observe this difference of opinion,
it existed during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Because it is evident that the Sahaba are at one night Allah Allah image of mine, they differed,
Whilst the moral limb, the teacher was one who was the violin, Muhammad salvaterra be soleimani.
So now today, you have many teachers, Now obviously, we all go back to the same source to hold on the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but now you have the Imams of the mother, here you have scholars, so no doubt, there's going to be a difference of opinion on this difference of opinion. As long as it is sound, as long as it is sound, as long as it is based on the Quran, the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, as long as it is done with sincerity, then it is tolerated. It is accepted. And this was how the Prophet peace be upon him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did so as well. We have this famous incident known as the incident of by Nakamura. The
prophets that along it really was Selim gave explicit instructions to a group of Sahaba of the Sahaba and one lay down an image of mine.
So I'm paraphrasing the incident the narration the Prophet tells them to do not play slough lasser or other you should raise a lot of acid. So you could basically translate it as, do not press a lot of acid until you reach by no charisma. Okay? Or you must press a lot of acid at Bonnaroo Cordova, if I'm not mistaken, along the lines of these words basically. So the gist of it the understanding is pray Surat lasser at burn okra very explicit instructions from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So now this group of companions they set out
they set out
and halfway or as they were making their way, but happened was that the time was hard to answer came about.
And there was one group of companions who stopped and prayed slotless
not Akbar no Croatia, but let's say on their way to by no paraiba because and by the way, this was not done
in disobedience to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam No, this was done, because they interpreted the statement of the Prophet sallallaahu Selim as being perhaps that, you know, the prophet expected us to reach by no korova in time for Surat Lhasa,
and they fell back on to the principal in the salata, kanatal Mini Nikita makuta. That you know, prayer has been prescribed upon the believers at appointed times. So they did not want to miss their prayer. And given that they had not reached by no kureta they went on to pray was another group of the companions they thought to themselves that in terms of this command, the command is explicit, the instructions are explicit. So therefore, we are going to press our last red button
either, so one group prayed halfway or during the journey, and the other group went to burn okra and pray to Atlassian, despite the time faster, leaving them. Now once they got back to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they informed him about this. And interestingly, the Prophet did not rebuke either group.
He reconciled, and he accepted both interpretations. So as you can see, my dear brothers and sisters, during the time of the prophets, that alone while he was held them, the prophet is alive, and the Sahaba that one like that an image of mine, they had a difference of opinion. So likewise, today, with regards to the matters of the dean, you would see differences of opinion, image descriptors. And
it's important to know how to navigate. Now obviously, that's a topic and a discussion for another day. But nonetheless, it's very important for students of knowledge for us to know how to navigate through the differences of opinion amidst the scholars maintaining respect,
maintaining that sense of etiquette with dealing with regards to the difference of opinion. Now coming back to baesman
so we've highlighted the differences of opinion with regards to bus mala being part of SoCal, Fatiha and other surahs Like I said, I I was hoping to present
this in a very concise way and not go into it in a lot of detail, but eventually inshallah maybe in another video, we'll go into the discussions and the evidences put forth by the scholars with regards to their views.
Now best mela
best mela is the term that is used or Basma can be defined as the statement Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem In the name of Allah who is Rahman Al Rahim. Now we're going to define and understand this powerful statement. But what word for word and Sharla. So let's start off with Bismillah Bismillah, which is translated as In the name of Allah Bismillah means I believe that oh Bismillah I begin In the name of Allah, Abdel Bismillah I begin
with the name of Allah or In the name of Allah. Now we have instructions from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
very clearly, with regards to this deed, this action. For example, we have a hadith that has been recorded in the Muslim of Imam Ahmed Rahim Allah, and in other books as well by the prophets that allow it very, very seldom is reported to have said that every important word, every important word or matter that does not begin with, the remembrance of Allah is maimed.
So now there are scholars who have classified this hadith as weak. But generally, what the scholars state in regards to this hadith is that the meaning is good. And we see this being illustrated through other hobbies, and the practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. For example, I'm sure that most of us are aware that with regards to almost everything that we do,
except for perhaps you know, when you are in the toilet, when you are relieving yourself, yes, you would abstain from mentioning the name FL Name of Allah, but apart from that, let's say you are, you are about to drive off. You get into your vehicle
is supposed to start with the name of Allah. Before you eat the name of Allah, before you enter your house, the name of Allah, as you leave your home the name of Allah, before you write the name of Allah. Look at the the letter of Solomon in the human soul, a man who Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, the letter of the Prophet Solomon basically or the statement of is it basically begins with Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim.
So it's generally understood as being a practice that is
emphasized within the teachings of the deen that were supposed to start with the name of Allah With the name of Allah. So this is of utmost importance. And we have had these, like I said, To illustrate at different junctures. For example, the Hadith that have been recorded on the book of Imam Al Bukhari and Mr. Muslim This is an authentic hadith. Jabir ibn Abdullah the Allahu anhu he states the prophets that along while he really was seldom is reported to have said, and I want you all to pay close attention to the words of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
When the rings of the night spread, or when evening comes, keep your children in for the devils come out at that time for the shout in come out at that time. Then when part of the night has passed, let them go and close the doors and mentioned the name of Allah for the devil does not open a closed door and tie up your water skins and mentioned the name of Allah, even if you only put something over them and extinguish your lamps. So as you can see very clear instructions with regards to closing the doors of your home as as darkness settles and closing your windows closing the dose and mentioning the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala tying up your water skins and covering up your food
utensils, mentioning the name of Allah subhana wa sallam. In another Hadith, which has been recorded in the book of Mama tirmidhi Rahim Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that when one of you eats some food, let him say Bismillah let him say Bismillah and if he forgets to do so, at the beginning, then let him say Bismillah Bismillah AR Willie he will he in the name of a lot at the beginning and the end Bismillahi fiorelli he will hurry if he forgets to say Bismillah at the beginning
and this has been recorded the book of Mr. tirmidhi Rahim Allah. So my dear brothers and sisters
many of us, we suffer from illnesses.
We have dietary problems. We have problems at home.
We have problems with our children with our spouses.
And one of the main reasons is because the devil is playing havoc
and we haven't sought the protection of Allah subhanho wa Taala we have failed to mention the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala
you see a believers life revolves around a bada revolves around worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says in the Noble Quran
mahalo Cartagena will insanely Abu we understand from the ayah that the purpose behind our creation is the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That does that mean? That we're supposed to, you know, spend our entire lives in sudduth in prostration know, the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam dictate otherwise, you can get married, you can have children, you can eat, you can drink
as long as you do everything within the principles within the framework of the deen. And if you do so, with the right intentions, every aspect of your life becomes an act of worship Allah. I remember wondering, Shay, how are you saying that?
Is that deduction of yours? No, not mine at all. They are based on the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam look at this amazing Hadith.
Hi, this is in Muslim.
A Buddha wrote the last one who he reported that some of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once said to him, Yasuda, O Messenger of Allah, the rich have taken away all the rewards, the rich have taken away all the revolts. They observe prayer as we do. And they fast as we do. And they give sadaqa they give charity from their surplus riches because they have wealth, they have money. So that gives other far
as in, what they were trying to say is that they pray with us. Yes, they pray like us, they fast like us, but because they have surplus wealth, because they're rich, they are able to give out sadaqa much more than what we can do.
So the prophets that along Wiley, wherever Selim now response, has a law not prescribed for you
away by following that way, you can also do you can also basically give out sadaqa and then he's had a lot of money but he was limited to say, indeed, in every test be in every statement of saying Subhana Allah, glorifying Allah is a sada with every tech be saying Allahu Akbar. There is a sadaqa with every mean saying Alhamdulillah there is
sadaqa with every delille Singh La ilaha illa Allah that is a sadhaka an unbearable maruf when nahi aniela Mancha in joining good days sadaqa, forbidding evil that is sada Ha. And then the prophets along with the various element on to say,
and indulging in sexual intercourse with your wife is a sadhaka.
they asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Yara sola is their reward for the one who satisfies his his sexual desires, his sexual passion, is there a word for that as well? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam now went on to clarify and make them understand. He says, tell me if this individual were to devote it to something forbidden. Okay, if he were to indulge
in something haram with regards to his sexual passion,
would it not be a sin on his part? If he were to,
if he were to
channel his sexual passions, through a haraam through a forbidden
means it would be considered a sin on his part. So similarly, if he were to devote it to something lawful through the blessing,
if he were to basically devoted to something lawful.
And if I were to explain it, explain it, in my words, if he were to devote it through the blessitt Union of Nika. This divine bond, this divine union of nikka.
The proselytism coming back to the Hadith, he says he should have a report.
So as you can see,
my dear brothers and sisters,
however, Dean is so beautiful, so wholesome and so complete, that even
indulging in your sexual desires with your spouse is going to be rewarding. every morsel of food that you put in her mouth, you're going to be rewarded by Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you go to sleep, sleep,
a good chunk
of our 24 hour day, if you were to sleep with the right intentions, to rejuvenate yourself, to wake up for Salah with the hatchet to wake up to the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala every minute of slumber of sleep you're going to be rewarded in Sharma Tana every morsel of food that you put in your mouth. If you were to intend that you are consuming this for that as long as it is halaal and pure.
That you are consuming it if you were to intend that you're consuming it to strengthen yourself to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. In Sha loudhailer, every morsel of food that you put into your mouth, you're going to be rewarded for it.
And other Heidi highlighted sexual intercourse between spouses, we have another Hadith and this one has been recorded on the book of mommy Buhari. Anima Muslim Rahim Allah even at best or the along line Houma. He narrated the prophets that allow highly variable Solomon's report to upset if anyone is about to have sexual intercourse with his wife. And if he were to say Bismillah In the name of Allah, Allahu Majid Nibbana shavon where Geneva shaitana Mara is up there now. If he were to say Bismillah In the name of Allah Allahumma Geneva chiffon, or, Oh Allah protect us from Chapin with Geneva share Connemara zatanna and protect our offspring or protect
what you have whom you will grant us from Chapin
so you're allowed what you are going to grant us ie the offspring, the children, protect them from Chapin. The promise Elias lm say is that the one the spouses who read this, if Allah decrees that they will have a child, Shere Khan sharpen will never harm the child.
Will the messenger lie? The messenger does not lie. The messenger speaks the truth.
When ninja me either how're mal Bala Sahiba ko mama holla wama young tieguanyin hella he does not speak out of his own desires. When it comes to the deen of Allah in Hua Illa your new ha it is divine revelation from Allah Subhana
with Allah. Today we have parents we have mothers and fathers
very disturbed, that their children are boisterous, that children are not listening to them.
Their children are stubborn.
One of the reasons is because of the disturbances of the devil. So it is of utmost importance. Many brothers and sisters, that
with regards to intimacy between spouses, you must seek the protection of Allah subhanho wa Taala. With regards to your homes, you must seek the protection of Allah with regards to your food, ensure that you consume halal and pure food. If the food is haram, if the food is not pure, then what you are putting into your bodies and into your children is going to definitely cause problems it's going to cause trouble May Allah protect us, may Allah protect our families, may Allah protect our children, I mean,
so as you can see these ahaadeeth very clearly mentioned the importance of mentioning the name of Allah, the importance of remembering Allah subhana wa Jalla the the importance of seeking the protection of Allah subhanho wa Taala as you embark on a new chapter,
let's say you're getting married, seek the protection of Allah subhanho wa Taala you are opening up a new business of that matter, every single day as you open up your stole as you get to work just before you start working. mentioned the name of Allah, seek the protection of Allah seek the help of Allah to ensure that you earn halaal and pure
You are about to drive off you have gotten into your vehicle, mentioned the name of Allah.
Read the doors that have been taught to us by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Morning and evening mentioned the name of Allah remember Allah. Just imagine my dear brothers and sisters of believer whose life revolves around mentioning the name of Allah remembering Allah and seeking the protection of Allah can the devil harm such an individual? Can the shot in Homs such an individual? Can the dark forces of evil that are out there in the form of evil eye in the form of has said jealousy in the form of black magic? in the form of the evil jinn? Can any of these evil forces harm such an individual who dons this spiritual armor on a daily basis, the protection of Allah this
order of protection is around this individual.
So my dear brothers and sisters, I hope I've emphasized enough with regards to Bismillah this spot where we say a Buddha who Bismillah begin In the name of Allah, I begin with the name of Allah. So inshallah Allah, let us
firmly intend to ensure that we begin with the name of Allah. With regards to the matters of our lives and through that you are going to
bring in Baraka into your life, you're going to bring in the health of Allah subhanho wa Taala into your life, you are going to secure the protection of Allah subhanho wa Taala and so many other virtues and benefits be in the light Allah. So with that we conclude today's episode, we will go on to discuss Bismillah in the next episode in Sha, Allah dalla I look forward to talking to you all soon in another video. Desert Camilla Hara. Osama aleikum wa rahmatullah warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
