Channel: Sajid Ahmed Umar
In this talk delivered to the students of an Islamic seminary in Colombo, Sri Lanka, Sheikh Sajid Umar reminds us of the gifts of knowledge seminaries and touches on the Names of Allah, including:
-How many names does Allah have?
-Is it enough to just memorise the names of Allah to enter jannah?
-Where did the list of the 99 names come from?
-How can the Names of Allah improve our worship.
-Are the gifts of seeking knowledge specific to seeking knowledge in the masjid?

So you come into a gathering.
You forget about all of the previous hours. And then when you need the gathering, step back into the normal life of the world

to talk about using the names of a lot
over the course of the weekend because in terms of the how that is very simple
when you learn the meaning of the names, you will learn how to use it.
But the bigger point that we need to understand is learning about the names of Allah is you learn a lot
and you learn a lot
is paramount to you improving your worship of Allah.

So this is an important matter that we need to understand
and use ever been to Villa I believe in Allah understand you believe in Allah, this mandate you learn a lot.
And that is why the last year we'll talk about is the famous, the famous that Indeed Allah

The reason why I say this is because
from the meanings of
is the meaning of memorize, memorize.
However, the term
has more than one meaning
until you've understood the
Less than 10 of my data was there more than one meaning, and the meanings are highlighted.
So when we look at this, in the Arabic language, we see that it carries the meaning of counting the meaning of memorization,
or memorizing, in carries the meaning of understanding
that you would say
that this person is a person of understanding.
Allah has learned
you ever looked after him or
he doesn't play, but he abuses,
they don't even know.
look into the explanation
that Indeed, Allah has 99 whoever counts,
that the rules and regulations of choosing the names of Allah, or choosing what is the name of Allah,
in the course of the weekend,
the principles of understanding the meaning of law.
So you can't use
that, number one, number two, you memorize them. That's number two. Number three, you revise. Then,
number four, you understand the meaning of the name of the name because from the meanings of
so you understand the meanings of these names. And what's the meaning meaning to you?
Understanding doesn't mean

So the point
is, the best way to be told is the best way to use the link of loss
is to learn the meanings of these. What

that means we can say Virginia as the name formulates of a law. So, what we're saying is, this is a discussion of some sort is have a very strict approach in that they say a name from the names of Allah only names which Allah says

the meaning of this description is a name becomes included in the names of Allah
