All praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala and we seek his assistance and we seek His guidance, and we seek refuge in Allah blesses it well JLL Allah had her from the evils of our souls and the adverse consequences of our deeds. himself, Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon the man can misguide him and whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees misguidance upon the man can guide him, and peace and Salutations be upon the final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I bear witness that there is no one worthy of
worship besides one Allah. And that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his final messenger, dear viewers, Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh I welcome you all to another episode in our series in the company of Allah subhanho wa taala, a series dedicated towards the study of the names the Beautiful Names of Allah subhanho wa taala. In our last sitting, we began discussing the names of Allah that fit under the theme of knowledge and from these names is Ella alim, and we shed other names such as a hobby and Aurora Thebe and Alessia and Shahid and Elmo, Haman, and assumere and Elbasy.
These are what the scholars normally group under the theme of knowledge and will Illa Hill Hamed we managed to speak about the name Alim and the name of hobby and for those who followed closely, you would notice that there is a subtle difference between a hobby and Eileen Eileen definitely encompasses the meaning of alchemy. But when we look at the usage in the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. With regards to this name and hobby, we see that Allah subhanho wa Taala uses it in association with the knowledge of that which is normally implicit and not explicit. So Allah is all aware even of that which you consider as implicit and hidden, was Aleem encompasses this meaning of
and normally is associated with the explicit that Allah subhanho wa Taala is knowledgeable of that which is open and as we took based on some of the ayat in the Quran, that Allah subhanho wa Taala knowledge encompasses the hidden as well. So there are subtle differences but because they share this concept of awareness, and Allah subhanho wa Taala as aware, the scholars have grouped these two names, under the theme of knowledge from the names of Allah subhanho wa taala, that are suitable to this discussion, of knowledge or the theme. Knowledge is the name of Shaheed is the name of Shahid and that name can be loosely translated to in the English language as the universal witness, the
universal witness, because this concept of shahada refers to this process of witnessing to see with one's own eyes to be present to confirm, to certify to give evidence to view to sight and so on and so forth. And this name referring to Allah subhanho wa Taala is mentioned 18 times in the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. So linguistically, these are the names or the meanings of this name. Shaheed and when we look in the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. We find Allah subhanho wa Taala describing to us a conversation between him and Isa he Salam on the day of Yama and PISA Alayhis Salam says to Allah medical to LA home
Mr. Attorney be earlier boo la hora being on our back on Welcome to rla him shahid.
TV Toovey phylum matter of fate and eco
Rafi barely him or
her Isla Kuta Lishui in Shahe de la ilaha illa Allah against the Quran ever so amazing. Allah subhanho wa Taala describes this conversation in his book,
The meaning of which is and this is the research
Salam speaking to Allah never did I say to them, except what You Allah did command me to say, which is to worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord and I was a witness over them whilst I was amongst them. So notice here that this name Shaheed can be given to a human being who witnesses. This is the linguistic
meaning and allocation of this term to a person who practices this act of witnessing. But remember our earlier discussion on methylone Allah when Allah subhanho wa Taala is said to be a shahid, then this is in no way, similar to what you and I consider as witness and testimony in terms of our dealings with one another. During our life in this world, Allah subhanho wa Taala there's nothing like him, laser committed he shaped so he said Alayhis Salam says and I was a witness over them whilst I lived amongst them, but when you took me up, meaning when Allah raised Isa, he says you were the watcher over them, yeah, Allah and you are a witness, Shaheed to all things. So here is Ali
Mentions Allah subhanho wa Taala using his name, a Shaheed using his name a Shahid and Allah subhanho wa Taala in Surah Nisa, in the ayah 166 says, worker fair been lay he Shahida that it is enough for Allah subhanho wa Taala to be a witness. Now, when we say Allah subhanho wa Taala is a witness. Then even Kathy Rahim Allah says that what we are saying is that Allah subhanahu wa taala is a witness over one's actions, and is a witness over one speech, and is a witness over everything in a person's heart. Yes, everything in your heart. Appreciate this name, oh servants of Allah. And that is why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us men hammer, the one who in his heart
has a desire to do something good. But they did not do it. For some reason. Allah subhanho wa Taala rewards them as if they did it.
Amazing. You didn't do it. So how is it that Allah is rewarding you for something you didn't do? Well, you intended it. And Allah witness that intention. And something else prevented you from doing it. And you have been created weak, and Allah is the most merciful
and Allah can reward who he wants when he wants how he wants SubhanaHu wa Tada. So Allah What is your intention, thus He rewarded you and when you have a hum, this desire to do haram, but then you don't do it, because you fear Allah subhanho wa Taala it's all internal. Allah is a Shaheed just as Allah is Al hubiera. And I want you to appreciate how these names complement each other. Allah is Shaheed he witnessed that you intended to do it and he witnessed that you didn't do it for his sake, that Allah subhanho wa Taala rewards you as well. Subhanallah SubhanAllah. And when we discuss this hadith, we can bring in the name of Rama, for indeed He is the Most Merciful to reward us for not
doing something we were not supposed to do, Allahu Akbar. But the only way Allah can reward us for not doing something we were not supposed to do is if Allah is a witness, and all aware hobby
of the hidden that which no one else knows about, right? And remember what I said in our last episode, we must learn the names of knowledge
and use it to grow our Eclass Wallah. He laughs is the most important entity in our lives. And that is why some of the fuqaha said that we wished that those before us dedicated their lives from A to Zed from beginning to end, just writing about Islam is just talking about a class, just teaching about a class, just explaining to us the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in normal America will be needed yet. Indeed, there is nothing about your actions except that they are judged based on the intentions that acted as the foundation before or the foundation upon which that action was built. Subhanallah who knows these intentions, Allah subhanho wa Taala why? Because he is a name
and he is a hobby and he is a Shaheed so this is a name from the names of Allah that falls under the remit of knowledge. The theme knowledge from the names, brothers and sisters, that we can discuss under the theme of knowledge is a rocky, rocky IP that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the all observant and linguistically Rati refers to this content
observing or watching, have concentrating on attentively and supervising and taking heed, and being a guard and detecting and being vigilant and being watchful and when you are awarding over something and they keep her over something you look after it with a watchful eye to have a lofty observation tower. This is how you be a a watcher and we know ships have the RockTape the the person who does the on looking to see if there's any icebergs to see if there's any other ships to see if there's bad weather ahead and so on and so forth. They go up high, they have a lofty station. When we look at a lighthouse. The purpose of it is to put watches there, those who can see things which other
people can't this is the linguistic meaning of a Raqib. So they are overseers. They are inspectors, and they act as surveillance surveillance today we have cameras that practice this concept of surveillance. So these are the linguistic meanings of RockTape. Allah subhanho wa Taala is the old observant and Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book, in an idea that we hear every Joomla when the hoppy begins is hot. Right? Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the opening ayat of surah nisa. Yeah, you should pour a backhoe mu levy Hola. Poco mean FC shaida well holla upon in Jaha thermen Houma region Kathy row

We'll take a short break, and inshallah when we return, we'll look at the translation of this idea. And understand a little bit more. The reality of this beautiful name of allah of RockTape As salam o Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
