wa now the Villa haematuria. unforseen a woman sejati Anna Maria de la jolla, Medina Omu Berlin who follow her da da or shawanda ilaha illAllah Hola, Chica, Rashad Wanda Mohammed Abdullah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira and my bad My dear brothers and sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
So I want to start off tonight's discussion by talking about how amazing Allah subhanaw taala is, you know, when you look at the stories of the prophets in the Koran, you can't help but be amazed how let's find out what other took care of the prophets. And I want to share a couple of examples with you. The first example being of Ibrahim Ali Salaam, so Ibrahim Ali Salaam is captured by his people and he's thrown into a fire and you would think you know someone's thrown into fire that's it colossal it's overthrew them but then unless I know it's either he tells the fire to be cool and peaceful for Ibrahim it cetera. And it's amazing that normally anyone touches a fire and that's it
you know, they start screaming and shouting, but Ibrahim Ali Salaam for him, Allah subhanaw taala made the fire cold and peaceful. I want you to think about Eunice Ali Salaam University slums, devout hold by a will. And he's at the bottom of the ocean where no one can hear him at all. None of the creation can hear him. No one can do anything for him. He is stuck. He calls out to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah subhanho wa Taala causes the world to spit unicel Islam out, unharmed and untouched. I want you to think about more. So they said, well, Mussolini said he has the Red Sea in front of him he has the army of your own behind him. And the people are like what's going to
happen at this time, and Allah subhanho wa Taala he splits the sea for them and musante salaam and his people walk through. And that same sea that allowed Musa Suleiman his people to go through ends up drowning and killing the army of your own. I want you to think about use of an A Salaam in his story on how he's thrown into a into a Well, after his brothers plotted against him. Then he's taken out of a well and sold into slavery. When he sold into slavery. He is falsely accused and thrown into prison, in prison. The people that he is when they get out of prison, and they forget about him for a long time. Then eventually he's taken out of prison. And he taught us the dream for a kink.
And now he's made someone who's trustworthy and strong, and he becomes the finance minister of that land. Eventually, he's reunited with his brothers and reunited with his father, and he lived like a happy ending together. Then you look at Muhammad Sallallahu it was set up a man that you know his father died at six months old. His mother died at six years old and is raised without any parents. He's raised without any, you know, tribal backing later on. And eventually he goes on to be one of the most powerful human beings we've ever known someone that's not able to read and write but ended up being the most knowledgeable person that was ever created Subhan Allah like how does this happen
other than by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala other than by the code of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is how amazing Allah subhana wa tada is, and this ties in directly to our discussion tonight, which is about the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala which is about to the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala so when can you recite the verse verse in sha Allah
number 10 you
today he will
stop and just do the translation inshallah. Certainly a Jeffrey will design his right hand as well. On both of his hands are giving out all kinds of bounties. chakalaka Okay, so tonight's discussion is about the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you'll notice that the poet he starts off by saying that the Jamia de denied the hands of Allah subhanaw taala they denied the hands of Allah subhanaw taala and is as is our methodology will break down what are the different groups did and what why they did it exactly. So starting off with the Sunnah will Gemma and the sooner well, Gemma, they obviously affirm the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala as something that is real as something
that is real, and just to reaffirm the principle that we stand by his birth to be that term filled with Tansy who believe that we affirm the seafarer to the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala without likening them to his creation. So we affirm the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala without likening them to his creation, and likewise, we exalt Allah subhanho wa Taala. Without negating His attributes, we exalt Allah subhanho wa Taala without negating His attributes and this is the general methodology of the Sunnah when it comes to all of the attributes within the general methodology and the sooner when it comes to all of the attributes. Then we move on to group number two, the more 13
and the Jamia the Mozilla and the Jamia we completely denied to the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala altogether and tonight I want to give you a good
limps as to the history of German Joseph one German Joseph. One was the head of the Jamia and what he ended up doing, obviously he was affected by Greek philosophy. And he started coming to the Muslim community. And he didn't start off by telling them look, we can from the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala because at that time, the Muslim community was very knowledgeable. They were very affiliated with the Koran, very affiliated with the Sunnah. And they knew that all of these attributes are mentioned in the Quran and the Sunnah. So how can we negate something that Allah subhanho wa Taala is mentioning himself. And you'll notice that Joseph one, use the tactic that
Subhana Allah, you know, she thought originated, he didn't come directly attacking them, but he came from a different angle. And he started asking the people, does Allah subhanaw taala have a body? does Allah subhanaw taala have a direction is Allah subhana wa Taala created? And these sort of questions, these are the questions he sort of came with. And when he started developing a following, and people seemed people, you know, he he made the people presume that his intentions were pure. That's when he came out with his real deviation. So he said we don't affirm a direction for Allah subhanaw taala we don't affirm a body for Allah subhana wa Tada. And if we were to affirm these
attributes of Allah like the face and the hands, then we would say that Allah subhanaw taala has a body because how can these things exist without a body and that is how Joseph one started his movement of the Jamia not directly telling the people at the sci fi to do not exist by gi but getting the people to believe that he had pure intentions and then Miss guiding them and then Miss guiding them. Right and this is what she's done. Exactly does if you look in certain hasher
last minute and he tells us cometh in the shade on it's called a little awkward phenomena for recall in the berry ohmic India kafala horrible Halloween. So the example of she thrown a certain hashtag that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives is that he will tell mankind commit Cofer with Allah subhanho wa Taala commit go for with Allah subhanho wa Taala and when mankind commits go for he tells mankind anybody will make I'm free from you. Because I fear Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is a gem of the stuff one did he made the intentions seem pure to the people and then from a different angle, he misguided the people and this is why it's very, very important that when you understand the Quran
and the Sunnah, when you someone is speaking about the terminology that you're not familiar with, you always ask what is your intention behind this? What do you mean by this? So these sorts of questions, you know, does Allah subhanaw taala have a body does Allah subhanaw taala have a direction? These questions are not posed by the Quran and the Sunnah. And rather than attempting to answer these questions, one should Did you know just stop at that point and say, Look, I will not answer this question, because this question is not appropriate this question is not appropriate. So that is how Jambo Jambo Cephalon and in other Muslim movement there after you came out to deny the
attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then we move on to the third group. And the third group is the Shiloh the third group is the shadow. And as we mentioned before, in the shower, didn't have a set methodology when it came to the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The firm some of the attributes, they denied some of the attributes. And as you look at particular heads of the archery movement, you'll notice that some of them took different methodologies, when it came when it came to denying the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala. So we mentioned that they took two methodologies. So they denied the attributes of Allah and the first methodology they took was the fourth, the fifth
and manner, they said, We do not know what this word means, and we leave its meaning up to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions hand in the Quran mentions yet in the Quran, we don't know what this hand means when Allah subhanaw taala mentions eyes in the Quran. We don't know what these eyes mean, right? This is what they call the full width. Now, I was reading recently preparing for this halaqa and it was looking at what she called a senator from the same era Kamala, you know, mentions about the freeze, and he mentioned something very interesting. He refers to the people of the freeze as mutagen people who make the accuser accusation of ignorance, and with
the jail the people make the accusation of ignorance. Why are they called the gene because in their position of making it tough with a man of, you know, referring the meaning only to Allah subhanho wa Taala. They're saying that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the companions were ignorant of what Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed. So they're accusing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the companions of the Allahu anhu of ignorance. And this is what the hidden is essence is, if you claim that we do not know what this meaning of what a certain word means, in the Quran, then you're affirming ignorance for the pastor Salaam, and for the companions, because this was
revealed in their language and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to explain the Koran. And if the one that came to explain the Quran does not know the meaning, then who is going to know the meaning right. So that is the accusation of ignorance against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the companions, then the second movement from the girault, they are referred to that will and will is giving a meaning that has no precedents to it, or a meaning that is not in its rights plan is right place, meaning that it's not in its right place. And in fact, we'll be affirmed two different meanings for the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala two different meanings for the hand of
Allah subhanaw taala the first meaning was good luck.
Allah subhanho wa Taala this capability so they said when Allah subhanaw taala mentioned Ziad in the Quran for himself, this is referring to the capability of Allah subhanho wa Taala and it's not a real hunt a second group of them they said no, the meaning of yours in the Quran for Allah subhanho wa Taala is is nehama are the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala so you will notice that you know, there's no uniformity amongst them over here that one group said Cordura and other one group said nehama and as you'll come to see when we talk about the proofs, that is not possible to affirm both of them right? You cannot say that Allah subhanaw taala had two coders or that Allah subhanaw taala
had two names, because unless I know the other refers his hands in a dual form and in a plural form, right. So when you will see notice particularly in the verse of Adam it Sadam, when Allah subhanaw taala tells you please oh please What is it that prevented you from prostrating to that which I created with my two hands? How can you say that I notice is referring to two capabilities over here are two blessings over here. So with that, let us jump into the proofs for affirming the hands of Allah subhanaw taala the proofs were referring the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the first PROOF is in Surah sod surah number 38 verse 75 surah sod verse surah number 38 verse 75, where Allah
subhana wa tada he says, Call a Billy sumana aka interested enough to be a day stuck about contaminated Eileen, that Oh Allah subhanho wa Taala says, oh please What prevented you from prostrating to that which I created with my hands? Were you arrogant? Or were you already amongst the hearty people? Were you already amongst the hearty people. So in this verse, Allah subhanaw taala firms for himself to Hans McCulloch to be idea, this is coming in its dual form. Allah subhanaw taala is affirming to Hans for himself over here is affirming to Heinz for himself over here. Now, I want to cause a bit of confusion amongst you guys tonight in Sharla. And we'll see how
you guys respond to this. So let's find out what's either here firms for himself to hands on, that's fine with other firms for himself, too, as you guys have the versatile Assad versus 75. And then I want to share with you a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he to Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is a first Hadith is a Muslim 27882788 Okay, so I Muslim 2788 and in this hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, you have to be Allahu xojo this summer, what's your monthly Yama sama? yahood ohana BIA de alumina familia Kula and Al Malik al Jabbar own animal Taka, Taka Buren samaya. ordained Mishima de familia Kula and Al Malik al Jabbar
own alien with a boon with the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Exalted and glorious will fall to the heavens on the Day of Judgment, and then he would place them on his right hand and say, I am the Lord, where are the hottie? And where are the proud today? He will fold the earth, placing it in his left hand and say, I am the Lord. Where are the hottie? And where are the proud today? Okay, so in this head if clearly the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says right hand and left hand, okay, everyone picked up on that. Everyone with me so far? Fantastic. Let's move on to the second lady who is also a Muslim. 1827 Austin's a Muslim 1827 and this hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam he says, in an ox Athena and Allah He alleged monogamy Nolan and the Amina Rahmani azzawajal were killed Surya de he Amina and alladhina de Luna he hooked me him with him while wallow.
So the process of them he says, Behold, the dispensers of justice will be seated on puppets of light beside Allah subhanho wa Taala on the right side of the Most Merciful, the Exalted and glorious, and both of his hands are right. And both of his hands are right, the dispensers of justice, those who do justice in their rules and matters relating to their families, and though in all those who are under authority of the UN all those who are under authority of them. So here are the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says what killed your day here mean and both of the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala are right. So now I will get you a bottle of water. If you can consider reconcile
these two Hadith for me go ahead that what kinds of Allah will execute for the right
like correct in the correct sense rather than the directional What does that mean?
Sorry. So yeah, so they'll do they'll they'll do the right thing rather than okay. You mean particularly refers to direction it doesn't refer to site or site Mr. Salim, which means like the correct or proper thing. So you mean reverse the direction clearly. That was a good attempt to though not but anyone else want to give it a shot.
Both hanifa and Sahih Muslim
Come on man. So when given a shot you hear you're getting a free bottle of water. This is a good bottle of water as well. It's not a cheap bottle of it. It's not one of like the free ones is actually a nice one. Good in the directional sense that it's Allah He can do.
So is it the directional census Allah subhana wa tada he can he can do he can do whatever he wants. Okay, that again is a is a good attempt, but it's not the correct answer. It's not the correct answer.
So as mentioned the right hand of Allah and the left hand of Allah that the heavens will be in the right hand and the earth will be in the left hand of Allah subhanaw taala
many men come and help the people out No idea. Allah knows best said going once you're dealing with
Allah Going once, going twice kursaal Come on. You seem curious, bro. No, I can see you flexing those muscles bro. Come on.
going twice, three times SOT Allah so let me explain what's happening over here. And the reason why I bring this up is because you know, the Shire Ah, and the people who deny the secret of Allah subhanaw taala they're going to bring up this show but they want to bring up this doubt and they're like your Aki there's all messed up, you know, how can you confirm to right hands and you know, one right hand and one left hand or using allies, three hands. Now what are you doing with iraq either, that is the type of argument that you will come with, it's very important to know, you know, a response to these arguments. So number one, the first Hadith in Sahih Muslim, the first Hadith in
simonsson, where he mentions the amine of Allah subhana wa tada and the shimmer of Allah subhanaw taala. This Hadith actually comes with multiple wordings. This is why this actually comes with multiple wordings. And some of the scholars of the past especially my my daughter, Courtney and those who followed him, they said that the word CML is not my fault. It is not the correct wording of the Hadith. And that is why Muslim with this what I hid from you actually brought another version of the Hadith where he says he had the okra, while de la he on the other hand of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he doesn't use it with the processing didn't use the word shemale. But he said the word
okra meaning the other hand of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that's one way the scholars interpreted it, that you know, the the wording of Shema is not muffled, it is not the correct wording and that is why Muslim brought to the other wording, which says, Well, we are the law here local law, the second interpret and interpretation and along those best, this is the stronger interpretation out of the two, this is a stronger interpretation out of the two out of the two. When Allah subhanaw taala is messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says kilter your day he mean, the intention over here is not direction as what Dinesh was pointing out to the intention over here was not direction, but
where Dinesh fell short is that the implied meaning isn't of correctness.
The implied meaning is a linguistic definition of you mean is a linguistic definition of your mean. And the linguistic definition of you mean comes from human which is something which is proficient something which you know is blessitt something which is done with ease, right that is what human means. Right? So Amen. The nerd name, amen. It comes from the same meaning, meaning that something that is blessing something that is done with ease, something that is done well and proficiently. So when Allah subhanaw taala is messengers all of a sudden he says that both of the hands of Allah subhana wa Tada. You mean, what he's trying to say? Is that Allah subhanho wa Taala His hands are
not like our hands. And you'll notice yourself when you go to the gym, you know, particularly when you're doing you know, your bicep curls. With your right with your like the proficient tant, you'll end up doing like maybe sometimes even twice the amount as your other hand, right? So if you go to the gym, you'll notice one hand you're doing like 60 kilograms, the other hand you're doing 40 kilograms and the other hand is a completely terrible and you're like do those final What is wrong with this and that's just the weight loss plan with other creators that one hand is stronger than the other one hand is stronger than the other. Now one may argue You know what, how about if someone
is ambidextrous that use both hands proficiently. Even if someone uses both hands proficiently, there will still be a dominant time to that will still be a dominant tent. So the prophet SAW Selim is saying over here, that Allah subhanaw taala has no deficiency in him, and both of his hands execute perfectly, both of his hands execute perfectly. And that is the meaning of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that is the meaning of the Hadith of the prophets of Allah and he was so so now going back to the verse that we were talking about, in Surah. Assad, he almost died, he tells a police or police what is it that prevented you from bowing down to add them the one
that I created with my two hands? And this is of immense importance over here because not only did Allah subhanaw taala create Adam Ali sat down with his own hands and this is like a great virtue of Adam alayhis salam, but Allah subhanho wa Taala is teaching us something about his power and capability. And that is that there is no limit or restriction to the capability of Allah subhanaw taala either Malik salam, he was created out of sand and clay and water. He had no parents. There was no you know, normal.
Birth like we have, but Allah subhanaw taala created him from absolutely nothing. And there was nothing that could have foretold the coming of either they either made his sudden and this shows the great power of Allah subhanaw taala. Now while and the sooner they affirm the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala is reality, we also affirm the power and capability of Allah subhanaw taala how Allah subhanho wa Taala created Adam it is to them from nothing. Now why is this something that's an important and integral part of our aqeedah? Why is this something that's an integral and important part of our firm? We have the capability unlimited capability and power of Allah subhanaw taala
like how does this affect you on a personal level? When you think about unlimited power and capability? How does this affect you on a personal level?
Go ahead, our brother in the back.
He just your your faith that he's
he's capable of everything so Exactly. Fantastic. Okay, what's your name, if you don't mind me asking.
So are we saying that this completes our token and Allah subhanho wa Taala because part of our reliance in Allah subhanho wa Taala is understanding that Allah subhanaw taala is capable of anything and everything. So if whenever mankind is in a predicament and in a difficult situation, where they need the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala one can never presume and should never presume that you know what, Allah will not help me Allah subhanaw taala cannot do this for me, but rather Allah subhanaw taala can do anything and everything that he pleases. And we see this in the creation of Adam Elisa, where no one can create anything out of nothing, yet Allah subhanho wa Taala created
the father of all of mankind out of nothing. So if you can create other money Salaam out of nothing, then he can solve all of our problems and fix all of our problems. And this is one of the great, you know, effects of affirming the hands of Allah subhana wa tada of affirming the great hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. I want to share a second verse with you, and this is sort of Zoomer, verse number 67. Sort of Zoomer, verse number 67. Were Allah subhana wa Tada. He says, well, naka de la haka, Qadri was Aldo Jami Cappadocia who Yama Yama was similar to what we are to be I mean subhanho wa Taala. You should recall, we have not appraised Allah subhanho wa Taala with true appraisal while
the earth entirely will be within his grip on the Day of Resurrection, and the heavens will be folded in his right hand. Exalted is He and high above what they associate with him high above what they associate with him. So here Allah subhana wa tada is talking about the Day of Judgment now Allah subhana wa tada will fold and will release the heavens and the earth on that day, and the folding of the heavens and the earth on that day. While Allah subhanaw taala firms you know, his right hand in this verse over here, what this verse is mentioned in spire is fear into the hearts of all people is fear into the hearts of all people, as you saw in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam that when Allah subhanaw taala folds and releases the heavens and the earth, He will say a knowledge of Barun aina. And what occurred below that we are you know, the dictators on that day and were the people who committed injustice on that day. Because on that day, Allah subhanaw taala will hold people to account and here unless I know what the other is showing that his hands are so powerful that they will fold and release the heavens and the earth as if it is nothing as if it is absolutely nothing. And that that is what Allah subhana wa tada will do. So here in the firm in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala this inspires fear to the slave of Allah subhanho wa
Taala that I need to make sure I'm not from the arrogant people, I need to make sure that I'm not from the oppressors. I need to make sure that I'm not a dictator, because Allah subhanaw taala will hold those people to account on the Day of Judgment. And those are the people that have the most fear on that day. And those are the people that have the most fear on that day.
And then the third and last verse I want to share with you is in certain made certain made a certain number five verse number 64 surah number five, verse number 64.
What Allah subhana wa tada says, we'll call it Ilya hoodoo Allah He muzzleloader wounded ad him while you're in ob Mercado. bayada home up suta ternoon. Okay for your sharp. So let's find out what's out there in this verse. He says that the children of Israel they said the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala is changed. And then Allah subhanaw taala responds by saying change are their hands and cursed are they for what do they say, rather both of his hands are extended. He spends however he wills he spends However, he will see spends however he wills. Now when you look at this verse, it shows you you know, early forms of deviation, and the attributes of Allah subhanho wa
Taala, early forms of deviation and the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when we talk about the heat when we talk about the oneness of Allah subhana wa tada the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala is divided into three categories. It is divided into three categories, the rule will be of Allah subhanaw taala, the Lordship of Allah subhana wa Taala so this is how Allah subhanho wa Taala controls life and death. He controls the alternation of the sun and the moon. He controls night and day, he controls the plants growing and dying. This is all part of the robia of Allah subhanaw taala under the Lordship of Allah subhanho wa Taala The second category
of tawheed is the Olivia of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the right of Allah subhanho wa Taala to be worshiped, so unless I know what's odd is the only one that has the exclusive right, to be prayed to be supplicated to to be prostrated to, to have tawakoni and to have patience for all the time of fear of to have love of right, all of these things are exclusive to Allah subhanaw taala and they fall under the Lordship the UI of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the right to be worshipped by Allah subhanaw taala and the third category of tawheed is the tawheed of Allah subhanho wa Taala fear smell suffered, which are the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala. So the perfect names and
attributes are exclusive to Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. So when you look at this third category of the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala you'll notice that the firm first forms a deviation in the forehead of Allah subhanho wa Taala while the Christians went towards, you know, the obeah of having, you know, Allah subhanaw taala having a son, and you know, making him worshiped with Allah subhanho wa Taala benissa he went into the third category, where, you know, some of the tribes were amongst them did a former son from Allah subhanaw taala he said, there was the son of Allah subhanho wa Taala but their bigger crime was their you know, Miss Atul mutation of the secrets on how the
affirm from us I know it's either some of the most disgusting and negative attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala so you look at the story of Genesis and the story of Adam and he said on the farm that Allah subhanaw taala forgot what I the mother he said was right, how can you have a Lord that is forgetful and then this is like you know, even the crazier one, I mean, how can you finally attribute something like this tagless final Tada. They said that the hands of Allah subhanaw taala are chained up. Now by changing up the meant that Allah subhanaw taala is stingy.
And when you think about this, is there anyone that is more generous than Allah subhanho wa Taala they give you just think about it even the most poorest person on the planet. He is so rich and drowning in the generosity of Allah subhanho wa Taala that even if someone gave him a billion dollars, Allah subhanho wa Taala would still be more generous, because could anyone else give him life? Could anyone else give him eyesight? Could anyone else give him the ability to love and to feel loved? No one can only listen I know what the other can do that and that is from the generosity of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this deviation in the attributes of lust finance either you see it
started with bunnies violet is a very disgusting thing that he affirmed for Allah subhanho wa Taala. So now look at how Allah subhanho wa Taala responds to them. He says their hands are chained up their hands a chain of meaning that they are the stingy ones. They are the stingy ones, and we're not going to get into stereotypes. This is one of those final thought is saying right? and cursed are they for what they say meaning that Allah subhanaw taala has cursed them. Burley Idaho mob sorta tan and mob suit comes from basit meaning the hand of Allah subhanaw taala is extended, meaning that at the hand of Allah subhanaw taala is constantly giving Allah subhanaw taala is constantly sharing
is constantly you know, dispensing the heavens and the earth upon his creation. And I want to share a hadith with you again from Sahih Muslim Hadith number 993 it is number 993 Well, unless I know what it is messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says
spend and I will bestow upon you so here Allah subhanaw taala is addressing us in so this is like a hadith quotes he says spend and I will spend upon you. Then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam added to this and he said, the right hand of Allah is full and spending the riches liberally during the day and night. And they will not diminish the resources of Allah subhanho wa Taala Don't you see what an enormous amount of resources he has spent since he created the heavens and the earth. And what is in his right hand has not decreased at all. His throne is upon water, and in the other hand, his death and he elevates and degrades whom he likes he elevates and he degrades,
whom he likes. So here are the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after he narrates what Allah subhanho wa Taala says, that spend and I will spend upon you, then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says that since the beginning of creation, Allah subhanho wa Taala has been spending upon his creation and has been giving to this creation, yet it is not decreased his dominion, it has not decreased the resources that Allah subhanho wa Taala has. Now I want you to think about this panel like that. How do you constantly give, but it doesn't really decrease your required resources, right? You know, you spend money in a day at a restaurant, you know, you treat a
friend out, you put gas in the car, you buy groceries, you fix something in your house, and at the end of the day, you're like, I don't know what to do on Monday. Like my whole paycheck it just disappeared in one day. Allah subhana wa tada has been spending upon each and every one of his creation since the beginning of time, and it hasn't even made a dent in what Allah subhanho wa Taala possesses. And this is the third thing that the slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala is inspired with that when you seek your risk, seek your sustenance from Allah subhanho wa Taala because the hand of Allah subhanho wa Taala is constantly giving and that is why she thought he threatens the people
Let's find out what the other he says spend and I will continue to give spending I will continue to give. So what we learned from this over here are two things. What we learned from this is two things. Number one is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that spending and charity never decreases one's worth spending. Never decreases once was, it was almost final without the saying of your spend, and I will spend on you. So this is a promise from Allah subhana wa tada that when you spend for his sake, Allah subhanho wa Taala will spend on you. Number two, the second thing that this teaches us is that literally the world is our oyster The world is our playground, that all
of the risk is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala and he gives it as it as he pleases. So you will find someone who is a king today, he will be a pauper tomorrow, and someone who is impoverished today, he can be like the richest man on the planet tomorrow. That is where we are. Let's find out what the other turns. So a lot of people may think you know what I'm destined to be poverty, it to be in poverty forever. But that's not the case. we're forgetting how unlimited the resources of Allah subhanaw taala are and how Allah subhanho wa Taala provides for everyone. And when you look at the lives of the companions of the past, they truly understood this panel. They truly understood
this. And I want to share the example of
side of interviewer costs side of your costs. One of the ritual companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So it was a side of interview question. No, it was one of my apologies. It was other handed off of the mouth. He migrates from Mecca to Medina, and when he migrates from Mecca to Medina, he leaves everything behind like he was one of the richest people in Makkah. He has left all of it to behind. He comes to Medina now and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he pairs him up with which companion who was absorbed Madame norf paired up with who knows.
Saudi Arabia. Excellent. You split up with saddam, the Libya, Saudi Arabia, he tells us,
look, I have two houses, choose any one of the two houses you want, and it is yours. I have two businesses to orchards choose any one of the two businesses in orchards, and it is yours. And at that time, obviously, the laws of marriage hadn't been revealed yet. But he tells him, Look, I have two wives choose any one of my two wives, and she is yours as well. No person has given everything up for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. You would think that even if he's like, Alhamdulillah, my doors have been answered. I didn't have to work at all. And unless providing me with a house or wife and a business, how amazing is that? But we see why the house was from the exclusive elite of
Allah subhanho wa Taala because he tells Saudi Arabia look designer located I appreciate what you're doing for me, but just show me where the market places just show me where the market places and he goes to the marketplace. And he starts selling dried yogurt. And you will think Who on earth want to buy dried yogurt. But what we're forgetting over here is that when you're sincere to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Even if you're selling something like dried yogurt, Allah will send you a customer Allah will send you a customer and the same Hadeeth reported in Sahih Muslim A little while later of the management office walking by the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he says the
process MCs of the management of and he has a yellow stain on his shirt. So he asked him Yeah, but man, what is this yellow stain, and he says you're a Scylla we were you know, celebrating my wedding. And this is like, you know, a stain that I couldn't get out from our celebration. And this is like you especially like bicycles, you know how they throw the candy on like the groom. You can imagine something like that, right? That's what they've done to this guy. His clothes are even stained though the skins final law.
So here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, What did you give her as a mother? What did you give her as a dowry? And he responds by saying, I gave her a nugget of gold. I gave her a nugget of gold. And the process is I'm telling him at that time, I will and we'll be sure that have a party celebrating this marriage, even if it's just by slaughtering one sheep, even just by slaughtering one sheep. This Hadith has so many lessons in the span of Allah. Firstly, let's look at the example of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam. Imagine one of your close friends gets married. And they don't tell you. How would you react to that? You'd be like, how could you betray
me whatever friend are you? You know, I thought we were tight. Why would you not invite me to your wedding? Brother Didn't you know he didn't bother that obviously, being human, he might have had some hurt feelings, but he didn't portray it at all. rather he reverses the situation and is like okay, let me teach something to them enough instead. So he asked him what did you give him out? Does that if he didn't give Mr. He that he should have given them out. And he says I gave a gold nugget as a Mahal. And this shows us that a man that sacrificed everything and Mecca was getting everything for free and Medina start selling date. He gets rich enough within the matter of days, there's able
to give a gold nugget as a dowry to get married. SubhanAllah and it's like a lesson for all the brothers over here like you know, I'm broke, I'm broke. I can't get married. Look it up. The market went off. He was selling dried yogurt. Allah got married like that he had money. You know, the very
Next day, when you're sincere and you put your trust in Allah, Allah will provide for you. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, after he sees this from the mouth, he says, oh, Liam will be sure that have a walima even if it's just with one, you know, sheep, so here is like, Man, you know, I just gave this dowry, I'm just started working. And now you want me to throw a party for everyone. You know, this is what you want me to do. You want me to spend more money, but that command couldn't have pleased up the monument or even more that spending for the sake of Allah, you know, feeding his brothers and sisters, he knew that Allah subhanho wa Taala would provide for him
and then you look at the history of the wealth. in Medina, he goes on to become the another Dawn of Medina, like another you know, he owns the trade routes of Medina, all the businesses are successful. And you know, Mashallah he becomes the rich companion, once again, that he spends in the way of Allah, Allah gives him more spends in the way of Allah and Allah gives him more and this is what the third you know, aspect of affirming the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah subhanaw taala constantly gives and that we should never be people that are seeking handouts. We should never be people that are begging we should never be people that are stingy, but spend in the
way of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you spend in the way of Allah subhana wa tada and Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you now there just a couple of small points I wanted to add on before we conclude
Okay, so the first thing I wanted to add on the shift he says we will do either he'll be on the hula yeltsin at factory Shane Phil SM and you're tough to call Phil Hachiko well Muslim has been on mahalo Mahalo for keefer being a Holic, he will McCulloch. So the shake this is Jacob Osaka. And about halfway through LA, he mentioned over here, that one of the things that we can test the Shire or with and those who negate the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala with is by telling them that just because something shares a name, it doesn't mean they share a reality just because somebody shares a name, it doesn't mean that they share a reality. And here's an example, if you look at to
creation, their hands will not be the same. So the example of a human being the hands of a human being in the hands of an ant. They both have hands with the same hand, or they both as strong, do they have fingers and all that stuff? No, they don't. Yet both of them hands have hands. So just because there's a sharing in the name, it doesn't mean that the reality is the same. It doesn't mean that the reality is the same. And if this is between two different creations, then how about the difference between the creator and the creation? That just because we have formed a hand for Allah subhanho wa Taala it does not mean that his hand is like the creation, it does not mean that his
hand is like the creation. And then the last point I wanted to mention is that in if you look at for those of you that have the notes, if you look at the verse, the very last word in the verse, it says 10 federal right? It says bill firewall deleted file. This word is actually narrated in two different ways. It's narrated as 10 federal and 10 bottle with a bod 10 bottle telephoto, it means the one that gives the one that is is generous. As for Thunder hoo hoo Arish was so cool that it is the spring You know, when you spray something with like, you have water in your hand and you spray it upon your kids, or you spit upon your spouse to wake them up for budget. This is known as delish,
and likewise a soaker which is to give water to someone right?
This all here Allah subhanho wa Taala saying that Allah subhanaw taala is constantly spraying with his generosity and constantly providing drink for his slave quantity providing drink for his slave. So that's just a change in the wording. Both of them are narrated in this poem, both of them are narrated in this poem. And the last thing I will conclude with is just, you know, to gradually increase our knowledge of al Qaeda, when we talk about the effect of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Those effects of Allah subhanho wa Taala are of two types the effect of Allah subhanho wa Taala are of two types. The first type is sifat that year, and the second type is sci fi sci fi idea The second type
of sci fi sci fi idea What does sci fi that TLC felt failure mean? sci fi that year. Those are the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala that have to do with his essence. Those are the attributes that have to do with his essence. sephats Veolia, those are the attributes that deal with the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala the machine of Allah subhanaw taala those are the attributes that deal with the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So for example, when we talk about the hand of Allah subhanaw taala or the face of Allah subhanho wa Taala or the shin of Allah subhanho wa Taala these are things that will be coming up in sha Allah, these are all sifat that year, because they are always with
Allah subhanho wa Taala they don't deal with the will of Allah subhanaw taala they're always there with Allah subhanho wa Taala Lucifer Alia. Then these are the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala that deal with the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the attribute of creation, the attribute of rising the attribute of descending all of these deal with the will of Allah subhana wa Tada. So when we talk about the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala
Either These are from the C fat that's here these are from the C fats, which are from the attributes of the essence of Allah subhanaw taala that they're always with Allah subhanaw taala and don't deal just with his will and permission and don't deal just with his will. And his permission, will la huzzah Allah, we pray that Allah subhanaw taala mix of those that have failed to work with him. We have made we pray that Allah subhanaw taala mix of those that are not arrogant and proud and replace me We pray that Allah subhanaw taala makes us of those that Allah subhanho wa Taala constantly provides for and takes care of in this life in the hereafter. Allah Ameen or sallallahu Sallam with
article in the Vienna Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, I will take three questions and we can call it a night and Sharla.
Otherwise, go ahead.
Failure sifat failure.
Going once going twice?
For sure anything went candlelight vigil? Yes.
That is a very good question. And I apologize couldn't answer your there I'd seen your message. But it was just too long it there's so many messages that gone by in between I couldn't respond. This is a question I asked she will lead with Sunni. So I'll just share his answer with you. He said this is not from the actions of Islam. This is not from the actions of Islam. And there's a simple principle that deals with
actions, where if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was able to do something, and he didn't do it, then this is something that you should abstain from, he was able to do something and he didn't do it, then there's some that you should abstain from some of the scholars use this as a definition of Buddha. But this one of itself is not enough to call qualify something as a Buddha process and easily could have lit candles for his deceased, the process of them didn't to do that. So the safest thing to do is, is so it is something to abstain from it is something to abstain from Allah hota Anna Anna.
So in terms of flowers and plants, it is narrated that the Prophet salam, he put
two dried plants upon the graves of the people that were being punished in the grave. So one person was being punished in the grave for not looking after themselves after the urinate. And the second person used to cause fights between the people and the physician and put it to the plants on both of them. And he said, It is hoped that by the time these plants dry out, that they would have been forgiven for their sins, or the punishment would have stopped. So some of the scholars they took from this, that, you know, sorry, not some of the scholars, the scholars took from this, that this was something that was exclusive from the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam, that he knew how their
punishment would end and when it would end. And there's like a way that Moses and making like supplicating for them, that Allah by the time these plants dry, you know, let their punishment end. And obviously, in the middle of the desert, how quickly do you think a plant is going to dry? It's going to be very quickly, right? So some of the people after they said, You know what, let us establish this as a sooner by going and putting these plants on the graves of the deceased, that hopefully their punishments will end as well. Now, that's problematic in two cases. Number one is that in a place like Calgary, they're going to see it rain season, that plant might actually start
growing even though the punishment might increase. And number two, obviously, this is something exclusive for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is not for something else for the rest of the creation. Allow I know
what you mean. could mean linguistically? Yeah. Not could mean it doesn't mean this is what it means.
Why is it that way? Because that will the apparent meaning? Fantastic. So do give me a definition of that with both in Japan me giving a meanings not giving?
crooked, meaning crooked, meaning? That is a crooked definition of talent for sure.
Okay, so that we would be mentioned that will is to give a definition that has no precedent to it, or the definition that is not in its proper place. Right? So when they go back to the safer of yard over here, they said that yard over here means kodaira or it means niyama right? In the Arabic language if we're to look up the word yet, throughout the linguist linguistic history, meaning from Imam Shafi earlier, did was the digital term yet ever come with the meaning of coda or nehama? And the answer to that is no, it didn't right. After that, yes, when the linguistics and the Zhi logic emerge together, you will see that they made up definitions to suit their agenda. But for me, Mama
Sheffield, Ramallah and previously, that is where the pure Arabic language was found. You don't find this meaning, right. Whereas if you look up the term you mean in the Arabic language from the mama Shafi and before you'll find that the term you mean it has the meanings of proficiency, it has a meaning of something that is complete, it has this meaning of something that is filled with Baraka so we don't call this that we we don't call this that will we just say this is a meaning which is a thought here. So avoid it when you know study will soon you have something which is nice. When we say something is nice. It means that there's no second opinion on this matter. There's no second
Definition on this, when you say something as a VA hear you say that VA had means that there's two meanings, but one meaning is more appearance and the other one meaning is more apparent than the other than the third type is much, much. That's when there's multiple meanings and you don't know or you don't have the ability to distinguish which meaning takes precedence. So over here, the term you mean is a VA here, because over here, you mean could mean right hand, but it could also mean the linguistic definition that we are familiar with. Now given the context of the Hadith, given the context of all the other ayat and Hadith, putting it together, then we actually cross out to the
second meaning because of all those messengers are seldom actually affirmed shemale and another hand for Allah subhanho wa Taala. So therefore, it came to be that it means right hand over here, and that is why we went back to the linguistic meaning that is why we went back to the linguistic meaning.
No, so that will means you're taking a meaning that it has no precedent, or it's clearly not in its proper place. One of those two things, that is when you say that this is that we sometimes forgot what
the last time
somebody, right? Has the word yet is yet as well. Okay? And she says,
number one, okay? Is it possible sometimes, although the meaning is a friend to be hand, when this particular place, it could mean knowing the specific agenda, in a specific
I understand what you're saying. And this is not interpretation of the word hand, but it is an understanding of the meaning. So that's what we were doing with the seafightbot sefa toliet. While we affirm the hand of Allah subhanaw taala is a reality, the greater implied meaning is that Allah subhanaw taala is in control of everything, that Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to hold the people accountable on the Day of Judgment, and that Allah subhanaw taala provides sustenance. So that is the greater implied meaning while we still affirm the hand over here. So here in this situation, it is, it is possible that I've been abuzz. If it's true. I don't know if it is true or not. If he said
this, then he's not making it that way of the of the sefa. But rather he's given the greater implied meaning of what is the role of the CFO in this verse. What is the role of the CFO in this verse? Allah who thought I don't have to conclude with that panic alone will become the crescendo and Island istockphoto kawakubo edic
