Last class was
can this can this connect to like the iPad? Is there property of the iPad connection? Yeah, yeah okay. There's just need an adapter for the credit market
and we just wanted to do that
because these these shots this one sort of slow right was the
because there's a lot of this stuff buying and
I think we should
number one a stain on istockphoto while the real name is Chanel Pacino, CH er Marina de la palabra de la mejor de la la la la la la la la sharika our shadow Mohammed and I have the horseshoe salani. While Ernie he was like me, he was some limits aseema cathinone, Naomi Deen, and about shallow Tada, we're going to get right into class because of the
the delay. I want you to look at the screen right now. And tell me what you see. Sorry.
Sorry, you have to move up.
Okay, this will I just want you to take 10 seconds or so look at this picture and I want you to tell me
tell me what you see here going on. So just think about it for a minute. And then and then you can tell me show somebody? First Person raise the hand you get color.
You see a taxi driver? You sure?
Okay, Muslim taxi driver? Yeah. What do you see? A Muslim taxi driver. That's it. That's all Yeah.
He looks like he's irritated.
Like he might be stuck in traffic. Yeah.
He's in a bad mood. Okay. Read the faces there. Yes.
Yellow Yello thanks, Kenny. Yeah.
Sorry. He's practicing. So he's practicing Southern. Okay. So, but let me see. Let me ask you, do you do you like him?
Okay, you know, you don't know him. So,
you know, how could you you say it's your brother.
How do you know it's just not somebody that's wearing a cool feed and look like a Muslim to maybe get you to feel like comfortable? drop your guard and then he attacks you.
That's a thought. Okay. That's for those who think worse than two people. Right.
Well, okay, so the idea is this.
Just the other day. I had a friend come in from out of town. I couldn't meet him at the, at the train station. So I called a friend of mine. He's a taxi anyway and picked him up.
Frank came to me and he says
That brother You sent to pick me up.
I love him. He doesn't mind you. How long has he known him? 20 minutes, maybe something like this, sir. I love that brother.
All right. Now this is interesting. Why did he say lovable? he said. He said in the 20 minutes that I spent with this brother.
So the 20 minutes I spent with this brother. He told me that he's recently divorced and that he lives with his parents
that his father is bedridden.
And that he draws closer to Allah subhana wa tada by changing his father's diaper.
Yeah, and he that he Subhanallah he seeks a loss of pleasure that he actually enjoys the process because he feels like he's getting closer to last pants out. And now the majority of the day, his mother is taking care of his father. And so at the end of the day, when his mother is really tired,
he tells her to sit down, she puts her feet up, and he rubs her feet until she falls asleep.
Alright, brothers, 42 years old.
He said, and then he started reciting Quran to me sort of trash man. And he said his recitation was so beautiful.
He said, I just loved this brother. Now, he could have been just like him. So Matter of fact, he looks kinda like him. The brother I said, pick him up. Right? But what is it that made him love this person?
his characteristics, his demeanor, his qualities, his right, his attributes. They were they were things about there were things about him. That made him love him, right? The same way that a similar situation can happen and you just hate somebody because of the negative qualities that they had. All right. So what are we what are we talking about? Here? We're talking about knowledge of things. This is what helps us form an opinion of those things. Right? And so when we look at what we're going to study, which is the importance of knowing a laws names, the importance of knowing a loss names, because what are we studying here?
What are we studying?
Oh, wow, okay, that's good. Let's put a pin in that with the 99 Names of Allah. All right, anybody else?
The names and attributes of Allah, okay.
Knowing how to know Allah, all right, we're studying the names of Allah subhana wa, Tada. All right?
Not the 99 Names of Allah, we'll get to that in a minute. inshallah. We're studying the names of Allah. And the reason why it is so important for us
to know the names of Allah subhana wa, tada is because each of Allah hematol His names, indicates a quality, an attribute of Allah subhanho wa Taala, at least one and perhaps more. All right. And so by knowing his names, we know more about Allah subhana wa Tada. Now you can know the names of many people, that doesn't mean you know anything about them. Their name, in fact, could be quite contrary to who they are. So you may meet somebody named Abdullah, and he's not even a Muslim. happens. Right? He's not doing anything in terms of the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. But his name is Abdullah. You may anyway, I mean, you get the point. So the idea is that the names of Allah subhanho
wa Taala are different, you're not going to get in a taxi. With a loss of hand without it, you're not going to have a personal relationship in the sense that like you would learn about an individual. How do we know about a loss, what data we know about him through his names, through His attributes, that which he has revealed to us in his book. And so by studying those names, by learning more about them, we learn more about the one who created us, and the one who created us is perfect, his names are perfect, and his attributes are perfect. And that perfection is what draws us to love him. Subhana who would add and by knowing more about him, we will also hope in Him, we will
put our trust in Him subhana wa Tada. We will fear him.
panela this excuse me, because of the late start, we're going to have to move through certain things, but I really want you to internalize this point.
You think about
Hear, oftentimes and in the house, you might find centipedes Have you ever seen a centerpiece in a house? Okay.
Well, you call 1000, leggers millipedes, I guess them right.
All right, whatever they might be. What do they do?
They get on your nerves. Okay. Do they did it? Do they have any benefit to them?
They eat other insects. So spiders,
roaches, other things, they actually eat them, right? So for a person that doesn't know, like shake honey, we say honey,
from California, they don't have the they don't they don't have the 1000 legs thing. So so what happens is a person might you'll, you'll kill it, even though it actually might be beneficial to kind of have them around at certain diagonally to get on your nerves. But maybe that's better than the alternative, right? And so what happens is when a person is not aware of the benefit, then they
then they're going to destroy they're going to kill it. Now. Let's take it let's take it a little step further.
What if we said hypothetically,
these 1000 leggers are poisonous? Alright, so they have a benefit to them. But they also poisonous and you want to you want to kill it? How would you kill it?
You would step on it? Would you kill it with your hand? Why wouldn't you kill with your hand? Because it's poisonous, right? So you're going to you're going to try to kill it a certain way. Because you use a little bit scared, you're scared of what it could do to you. Now what if somebody said not only is it poisonous, but it has the ability to jump six feet?
Are you going to try to step on it? No. What might you do?
Ryan? Okay, that's a good idea.
Yes, okay. So you're probably going to get some kind of bug spray, maybe something that gives you a good, at least 10 foot range, right? So you don't have to get close to that close to it. So I mean, the idea is, the more you know about the danger,
the scarier you become, the more caution you take. And likewise, when you know certain names of lost parents at it and what that indicates,
and some of his attributes, then you will be cautious to be disobedient.
The same way that when you know other attributes of Allah subhanaw taala No matter how much you may have seen, no matter how far you've gone, you won't give up hope.
And so knowing these names and attributes of Allah Subhana Allah are very important in our worship of him a translate into worship. So very quickly, we'll just go through this. Number one, what is the purpose of creation? Yes. For well run out by run out again.
He did like the like the man who
who said, Oh Allah, you are my You are my slave and I'm your Lord.
Alright, running back.
Right. Okay, so last minute Allah created us to worship Him. jelajah can you worship Allah subhanaw taala without knowing him? No, it's impossible. And so the same way Allah Subhana Allah says towards the end of sort of there yet will not collect to the general incidentally I don't have not created managing except to worship me. He says at the end of sort of a talaq Allah let the Hanukkah savasana wax women out of the myth Luna ye Xs l m, Robaina hoonah, Lita, Alamo and a lot of conditioning on Allah.
So Allah Subhana Allah says he's the one who has created the seven heavens and from the earth, it's like and that the command that allows parents either yes and slo mo Beynon comes down between them, for what purpose? What purpose Li tag demo so that you know, so that you know that Allah is Able to do all things and then a loss of hematite is knowledge has encompassed all things and so the idea is that to properly worship Allah subhana wa Tada. You have to know him. There is no way that you will because what is worship at the end of the day, when we start talking about we've covered a lot of this the worship of the heart for example is like what
fear and hope and loving the last panel tada and,
and hating for lost friends. I was sick.
Until Wellcome Trust in Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and he never turning to him in repentance. How can you do that? If you don't really know Allah Subhana? Wa, how can you really love him? Jelena? Yes, there is a part of your fits Allah that automatically is inclined to that. But that revelation is what helps develop it, right? So if we look at number two, what is the ultimate objective of revelation?
knowledge of what
knowledge of a last hand with Allah and what He requires of us. And so if we look at the purpose of creation, which is to worship the loss of data that can't be done, except through knowing him, if the ultimate objective of Revelation is to know Allah subhanaw taala, then it also indicates the importance of knowing his name. So the last question is, how does a man increase? And we've covered this a number of times, through what
what kind of knowledge, beneficial knowledge and, and righteous actions through beneficial knowledge and righteous action is most beneficial? all knowledge is the knowledge of a loss of hand, which is names. All right, and we're going to cover this as we go so quickly about the book. So as you can see,
this is the book that many of you are familiar with, correct? You've seen this inshallah? No.
Oh, Allahu Akbar. So you gave your age
I was gonna say that, for those who've been around for a while, then they'll have seen the nail, it'll look like this to them.
See that? Okay. So if you've been around for a while, then you know, the Green Book.
But but the it's the same content.
And they both had the same mistake on the cover, which says that the name of the author is Abdurrahman, NASA, the city. And the author is actually the rock man. His name is Mr. Rock man. And but NASA said to him, oh, loves that type. What do we want to know about this book? So the title of the book is, what can anybody just read it real quick.
You can read it off in
an explanation to the beautiful, beautiful and perfect Names of Allah. I just want to point out and we'll and we'll cover this in a minute. inshallah, I just want to point out that Sadie has no book by this name.
Right? In the Arabic, this is actually extracted from his Tafseer.
And so he has a famous Tafseer. And it's printed at different places based off of which Tafseer you get. So sometimes it's printed in the beginning of the book, sometimes it's printed at the end. And in some of the additions, it's actually at the end of sort of the novel.
And that's where the author begins to talk about the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we're going to talk briefly about the book, and then we'll continue on because today, we definitely need to cover as best as possible, how do we determine
what's the name of a lost parent? after you read the Quran? How do we determine the names of Allah subhanaw taala. So that is going to be our main objective today, because we want to get through some of these technicalities. Then the next nine weeks in the lights, Allah will actually, every day that we have class B in the lab, we're going to cover as many of the names of Allah Subhana data as possible, we're not going to go for 99 or 113, or 89, or any particular number, there's a set methodology that will follow be in the lights on it. And we're going to cover as many names as we can tell you about the book, check mark, can you read the that paragraph that's on page 15, by the
way, for those of you who have the book on page 15.
that's you know, you need a mic check.
Upon the server to note that there is nothing worthy of worship besides Him. It is upon him to love him simply because he is who he is. and due to this profession. So here the this is actually a speech of even though I am translated, and the translator of the book that we're covering, he starts out by talking briefly about the importance of knowing Allah subhanaw taala here, he's talking about or even Okay, him is actually talking about why we love Allah. So if you ask many people, why do you love God? what might they say? Yes.
For all the things he gave us, that is exactly the answer I was looking for. Exactly.
Love hate, man. And that's gonna come. And that's what most people would say.
But here and I want you to listen alright?
The first reason why we love Allah subhana wa tada is because he is who he is.
He is perfect subhana wa Taala no matter whether he gave you something or he did it.
There are many things in life that you love that has done nothing for you. And many people in life that you will love that have done nothing for you, but you still love them, because of who they are, because of their qualities, because of what you deem to be good qualities. Allah subhanaw taala is perfect.
His qualities are perfect subhana wa Tada. And therefore he is loved for who he is. And so that's what I am saying here. You love him simply because he is who he is, and due to his perfection. So when we say
why do you love Allah Subhana Allah, number one, because he's perfect. And we're inclined to love perfection, and appreciate perfection in revere perfection. Now, as you'll see, when we study these attributes, and we learn about what a law says about himself,
you will you will love him some Hannah, who without it, and all of the other emotions, if you will, that follow the law, it is also also upon him to know that in reality, there is none who favors one with every type of outward and would blessing accept it.
And therefore, he should love him for this as well. And praise. Yes. So so he loves him for what as well. That is that is no one who can give you any outward or any anything, any type of blessing, any type of favor, that the Muslim that the one who gives you that Nima is Allah subhana wa Taala What do you mean by outward and inward blessings? What's that mean? We don't talk like that in English. So I want to make sure we understand what that means. Yes.
So yeah, we're looking more at like tangible and intangible that's closer to what we would say. So we talked about the the tangible blessings that are lost without it gives us like what things things like what
wealth, good health, or good health is not really tangible isn't
a righteous spouse. name so these are these are tangible thing What about what about intangibles?
Being content, so blessing from last fantana he died, that allies with Yo guys you to Islam. So blessing from last time
that we we have to be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala we have to show our gratitude to him subhana wa Tada. And at the end of the day, this is what makes us love him.
That he gives us all of these things. And that increases a person, even our Prophet it is Salatu was Salam. So what to have do to have boo, give gifts to one another, you're going to love one another. You do that in beers a person to you that you give them a gift. Right Subhana Allah so we love Allah Subhana Allah for that, hence, the servants should love him for both of these matters. I just wanted to point to that, because that's part of the beginning of the book is followed directly by this statement, which gives us an indication of what this book is about. Yes, fellowship.
To the above exploitation
means invitation and compliance to the exploitation this trees that is this this note this essay has been extracted from the opening words of
men, but now sorry, I know it says NASA sadly. But it should be a man. Yeah.
May Allah have mercy upon me to his steps of the court and they sit up Canadian man. And what she says simply that means very short, and beautifully explained those names of law that occurred in the court to add right so here he mentions that it's at the beginning of Tafseer. There are other additions of the Tafseer when it comes at the end and this Tafseer has been translated, or at least a good portion of it has been translated into English. And it is it's worth the read.
the translator has added some persons of the ad show the usage of that of the particular name in question. Alright, so what he's basically saying is that here
We have a list of names that the author has
extracted from the Koran.
Notice that these names have been extracted from the Quran. None of them are he did not go to names that were only in the Sunnah of the prophet Isaiah select was sent in, like a mercy. Okay, and and other names. So the reality is is that he extracted them from the Quran beautifully explains those names of Allah that occur in the Quran, hey, I want you to pay attention. This is very important when you approach any book that you read the beginning of the book to try to figure out what's the methodology of the author here, we don't know the methodology of the author, except for these little few words. And then the translator who does what he's the one that actually adds the act. So if you
look, as we go through the book on page 35, where the book begins at 37, something like that a rub and Allah, you're going to see what a sad, he says, and then you're going to see some if
those if were added by the translator, to as proof for the name, which we'll get to in shallow talent
should also be no it
should, It should also be noted that the author may have mercy upon him has only mentioned those names that occur in the ad, and these come to a total of 89.
Okay, so how many names of Allah subhanaw taala. has shaken Brockman aside, he mentioned
89 names, okay. Why?
Because those, in his view, are the names of Allah subhanaw taala that come into pride. And when we say in his view, what we're going to see through our study, is that not all of the names that somebody says is the name of Allah is agreed upon. And so we have to set certain criteria and that's what we're going to talk about what what criteria are there for us to be able to say this is the name of a law or it's not a name of a law? Right, which will come very shortly inshallah. Yeah, additional names mentioned in the Quran.
was made last night. Right. So So mo cam has a book called Cola, alkaline and Muslim, which has been translated I don't I don't remember exactly exemplary principles related to a lost fan dial His names and attributes. He added 14 names that were found in that book, 14 names of lost friends on it. So now, the total is come to what 103 to 103. So this book that we have in front of us has 103 names, all right of Allah Subhana data or as the ultricies, huh? No, is 89. And then if you go to page 98, let's just do it together right now.
If you look at page
97, so from 35 to 97, is is Saudis, the ones that assign it as much.
And you can like put little dog ears in your book or something like that. So that, you know, starting on page 99, is where he begins to mention the other 14 names.
And that's going to go up until page 105. From page 106 to 112, which is the last page in the book. He's going to mention all 103 names in alphabetical order. And as what you're also going to see here, this is not alphabetical order. He's going in exact same order that a Sadie went through in his book. All right, bye.
I think we should probably go through a
play. You see, you have the book in front of you, right? All right. Before we actually get to a loss of Hannah to Alice names and how we determine what the what the criteria are, I want you to look on page 16. The translator has added five
important rules related to a las pantallas names and they come directly from shake with Amy's book which is alkali, the Muslim. We're going to cover four of those five. They're very quick and succinct, but they're also very important to get the technicalities if you will out of the way so that when we start we can refer back and we can say Do you remember so let's go with number one. Bismillah r
The ship was named beautiful and perfect right? This is because they comprise a
perfect description and attributes.
This a 16 page 16 Yes, this is because they comprise perfect descriptions and attributes that contain absolutely no defects. They do not even suggest the mere possibility of additions. Alright, so I'm gonna I'm gonna go forward but we're gonna cover this in a minute. So, Allah subhana wa tada says in the Quran, Allah who your stands he will be him. Allah Who? Your status he will be him. Anybody might translate that for me.
Allah max them, but Who? Who? Who's them?
Allow max them Who?
The moon African? Yeah, because that it does come it comes in the context of the hypocrites now.
In what sense I want you to stay with me.
And what sense here? Why does?
Why can we say that? I mean, last month I said that about himself a law who says he will be him. Why? Because they are.
They're doing what what are the hypocrites doing?
They're mocking the believers and the religion.
And so No, in fact, you know how we say joke's on you. Right? So here, it's like, No, in fact, you are the ones being mad. This is perfection because it means that what Allah Subhana Allah knew what their plot was, he knew what their scheme was. And they are in fact the ones that are are being mocked. This is perfection as it relates to laws fantastic. But we had to do a lot of explaining there.
Is it okay to say that Allah, He who is dicey, we can say that he mocks them?
Is it okay for us to say that Allah is stassi? He is the macker? No, ha ha. So here, what we have is what Allah Subhana Allah does describe himself in a certain way. But he doesn't give himself the name. Why? Because all of a last names are perfect. And they're beautiful. They're Hostnet when they let him smell, and Hostnet, which we'll talk about in Charlottetown. So not everything that Allah Subhana Allah is described with or that is an attribute of Allah will be a name of Allah. All right, and that's important for us to understand yes or
no, no, no, we'll we'll get to the definite articles, though. That'll come, inshallah, it'll come. Alright, Photoshop. Did you read the I will
write the most beautiful and perfect names. Alright. So that's that. That's the first thing to understand. And again, we'll cover that in just a minute. But But understanding that all of the laws names are perfect. All right, yes, keep going. The names of the law are proper names and descriptions. They have proper names with respect to they're referring to the essence or person of the law.
And descriptions with respect to the meanings they carry over law. Right. Right. Right. Such that there's that there. So So what do we mean when we say proper names?
What does that mean?
No, no, no, it doesn't have anything to do with perfection here. A proper what's a proper now?
What is it?
So what but yeah, but it's right. So you're naming an actual
you're naming actual person a place or thing. So, when we say that a loss of hematite is named, that all of his names, their proper names and their descriptions, meaning that they belong to a loss of data means you can call a lot by that name, but they also comprise of a disc or have an attribute of a loss of data. So, if you say that a loss outright man, then we can call a lot of Rockman and we also say that he has the attribute of what of Rama Have mercy, right. So, in other words, and the reason why this is this is mentioned from from the principles is to is to distinguish the last pantalla from his creation, because many people may be named something and they though that is a
proper name for them. It does not always a description of that person, right?
So we talked about this before, we talked about a person whose name is Kareem. Right? Which means what? generous, but you would never want to go out to dinner with him. Because you're always going to pay. And he believes that that's generous, because he's giving you the blessings. Right?
So, so here are you may find someone named Sharif, which means what? noble, but there's nothing noble about them. Right? So people carry names, not necessarily the attributes of their names, whereas with the loss of habitat, the opposite is the case. So all of the loss of habitat is names are proper names. And they also comprise attributes. Yeah.
You can, you can skip, you can skip skip. So we're going to skip number three, because it's too involved for this discussion. And it'll come up anyway, as we go over the names. So go to number four, the names can only be known. And that makes perfect sense that the names of the last fantana can only be known through revelation. Why is that? Why do you think that is?
Yeah, go ahead and say hello.
Because no one knows the last pantalla better than himself. Tell you what else, Eliza gel is from the unseen. These are fears of the unseen. We don't sit up there, and we What did you do have a dream? And now you have you know, a new name of last pantai? How do you know the unseen? The only way we know the unseen is what? Through revelation? It's the only thing we know, the Hereafter is unseen. How do we know about gender not and what's happening? Only way we know is through revelation. So we can't make this stuff up. Right? Go ahead.
This is because there is no way of the intellect independently coming to know of them. A law the exalted says,
God just just readings do not pursue what you have no knowledge of, indeed the hearing the same, and the highest will own. In other words, don't don't say what you don't know. Allah, diocese don't say what you don't, and you don't know about a loss, other than what he has told you about himself. So everything that we want to know about Allah subhanaw taala, in terms of his names and attributes, is either in the Koran or it's in the other source of Revelation, which is the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu was sin, not last principle and then we call it then inshallah now continue, are not limited to a particular number. Okay, so how many of you would agree with me that Allah subhanaw
taala has 99 names?
See, come on me. You're rolling in it?
Okay, so we agree allies 99? How many of you would say that a lot only has 99 X.
Okay. Yeah. So a lot of times, people have this misconception that allies would just so if you find a book, and there are a number of them, where maybe it mentions 109 names of a loss.
It's not necessarily incorrect. All right. So the idea is that Allah subhanaw taala. His names are not limited to a particular number, however, and the author does not mention this. We call it Danny shalonda. Now, I'll continue.
Yeah, let somebody call you then please.
many of you have heard the Hadith of the Prophet it is Salatu was salam, where he says in the lillah he, to certain what to say in his men, Allah Subhana tada has 99 names Mia, in La wahida. He has 100 except for one, right 100 except for 199 A men saw her duckula agenda, whoever saw her. Now, a lot of times it's translated whoever memorizes them and to his gender. But I saw means not just to memorize them, it means that he memorizes them, he knows their meanings, and acts accordingly. All right, whoever knows these names and acts according to them, he will enter Paradise five,
that had his because of that Hadith, many people believe that Allah Subhana, Allah, his names are limited to 99 names. But that's a misunderstanding of the Hadith. And so I'll give you I'll give you an example. If I said I have $99 whoever finds it can keep half
understand that punch? Does that mean that I only have $99? So what was the benefit of mentioning 99? Here?
It means that the latter part of what I talked about, which is you can have half is related to the first part, whoever finds that money, whoever finds that 99 can keep half of it. All right. So similarly here,
the prophet is allied with Sam is saying that Allah subhanaw taala has 99 names, that if one is to know them, and act according to those 99, then he will enter Paradise. It's also important to note that there are other variations of that Hadeeth. And that they mentioned the 99 names all together at the end of the Hadeeth. You ever seen that? Like in JAMA tirmidhi, for example, and I mentioned a lot of other books, none of those narrations are authentic. The ones that mentioned the 99 names, attributing them to the prophet Isaiah Salatu was sin is nowhere with the prophets of Allah who it was some of them said that Allah has 99 names and then mentioned those names where it's authentic.
There are some scholars who believe that it's authentic and we'll talk about that in a second inshallah tada tight fellowship finish that finish that point.
when you learn more and reported by Rahim, Allah, and others in which the Messenger of Allah alayhi salatu wassalam said, as I look at the clinic, this is asked you by every one of your names with which you have named yourself, or which left the field revealed in your book before you finished it before you finish that dry. Does anybody know what this is for?
prophecy? Someone taught this to art. Some of his campaigns for what purpose? Yeah.
That's part of the DA Yeah.
Who said that? Yes, is for grief and anxiety, grief, and anxiety, and and why? Brothers and sisters, we all go through periods where we may suffer from anxiety about something or where we may grieve about something. This duel is imperative that you take the time to, to memorize and incorporate because it is a beaut is a beautiful, it's a beautiful drive. In it the profit it is selected with Sam says Allah him in the abduch. Right? So we just go through the door very quickly, Allah in need Abdul, Allah, I am your slave. Look, at the end of the day. What what happens when you're facing? What is anxiety? By the way? What does that mean, when you're anxious? It's about something that
happened already or something that's going on that you think could happen.
Something that you fear might happen, are you a little nervous about what's going to happen, right? And so you recognize in that moment that you are a slave of a law, that this thing is in a law's hands and you are his slave. He's your master and he's in control. alone in the house.
Do remind yourself of that right away.
Even though I
even though I
even were emphatic, I am the son of your slave, your male slave, the son of your female slave. Now see a TV addict. My forelock is in your hand,
Maldon Fie your hook, look at it, that your your hokum your decree has already been determined for me
as an admin fee, Kovach, and your whatever you decreed for me is just so here is decree and whatever lost hands out of the crease for you, even if there's some bitterness in that decree is still just whatever law gives you is just, but you know that you're the slave of Allah subhanaw taala and that your daddy is a slave of Allah, to Allah and that's your mommy is to and it's going to be okay Be it Neela and then you say Allahumma eneas Luca be called lisman who allec Oh Allah, I asked you by every name that is yours. By every name that is yours, some may to be enough sick, that you have named yourself because nobody else can name Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if anybody else gives a law
name that he didn't give to himself, then it's not the name of Allah subhanaw taala to me to be enough say, oh and Zelda houfy ki Tarik, or you have revealed in your book
what's the what's the next thing that the prophet Isaiah select with? Sam says, Oh, I love him to who? I hadn't met Hulk. Oh, you're you have taught it to one of your slaves. Hmm, what's the difference between that one in our xatu houfy keytab ic o I love to who I hadn't munhall cake.
Come on yo.
allied with that. I hear what you said what I already said ones in the Quran and ones in the sooner
and Zelda houfy key topic means it's been revealed in the Quran. Or you taught it to one of your slaves. Well, who does the last minutes Allah teach directly?
angels and prophets that's it.
And so, here, here, or you've taught it to one of your service has been preserved in the and the center, which is evidence that there are some names that come into sooner that are not found in in the crime I live to I had
always thought to be heafy in Midlothian, or you have kept it you have preferred to keep it to yourself in the knowledge of the unseen meaning that they are names that belong to Allah Subhana Allah that He is not revealed to his creations. He's not revealed to his creation, but there's still His names and so we may know 99 names or 119 names or or 150 but we're never going to know all of the names of lost fans and we're never going to know all of his His perfection because it's too much for us to encompass by
so that is the proof that a lot of hematologist names are as he says you're not limited to a particular number type and we're gonna go through this pretty quickly in shallow title because I know we have to get ready for salon today all right, we have here determining a laws names what is the definition of a laws Beautiful Names well the law Hill Esma or Hostnet further will be here all right so to a law belongs the most who snatched names
and so feather ooh behalf call upon him through those names worship Him through those names of habitat I just want to take a quick note on beautiful because that was what the the word that we chose for this particular class allows Beautiful Names right the I do take a little issue with that
and so for you brothers that is and sisters that are studying Arabic
what is a looseness?
Let's start with the word hassen what this has in me something that is good. Okay. Now, if you do what is known as they call it the isn't tough deal, which before to superlative, what do you have? I'm not an English major.
The comparative. Okay, so So this one is a sin. What does that mean?
Al x and is what
the best, but that's masculine action, which is the best is masculine. The feminine version is Allahu snare and Hostnet. So Allah has the best names he has the most. He has perfect names or last pants.
His names are and so beautiful doesn't really capture a Hostnet. All right, what we're saying is that will allow him to allow belong the best names.
And what that indicates is that whatever Allah Subhana, Allah is being described within that name, that he has reached the pinnacle of perfection of that particular quality, whether it is mercy, whether it is
whether it is
sugar, so his appreciation, whether it is withdrawn, meaning that his his forgiveness, that all of that has reached the pinnacle of perfection. And so that's what it means when we say, el Hostnet and Hostnet, though they are the names, they are those names. So when we say what are the definition of laws, perfect names,
there are three things that that we look at. And this is the definition of shaker saying to me about him a lot. He says then those names number one, by which a law is besieged and worshipped. Where do we get that from? It's all in the eye by the way. So Allah belong the best names. So feather Whoo hoo be had,
what is what is do I
write do as to two types to call upon Allah Subhana Allah beseeching him, and it is to worship a loss of habitat. So that's the first part they are those names, number one by which allows besieging and worship number two, which are mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah.
Why is that, why can't we find names that are not mentioned? Oh, Christ.
Hmm. Because it's outside of Revelation. If it's not a crime, and some it's not a revelation, there's no PS for last minute, that is names. All right. And the third thing, and they have to have all three of these qualities and engender praise and honor independent of external factors. That is that this name is perfect by itself, that this name is perfect by itself, without context. So if you look at before, why don't we say that the law is the mocker. Even though he says that he mocks, he mocks Who? The believers know the hypocrites, the hypocrites. So that needs something else for for us to understand the perfection of it. And that's why it doesn't stand alone as a name of Allah
subhanaw taala because it doesn't engender praise and honor independent of external factors. We need context, which is an external factor, as opposed to He is the Creator a Holic?
Does that need something else? Does that need context? He is Li Li The one who is knowledgeable of everything. Is there any context? He is assumere? The one who hears everything, does that need context? No. It doesn't need context. And so it's found in the Koran and the sooner we can call it upon a Lost Planet Allah with that name and worship Him by those names. So that's Islam from the smell Hostnet it's a name from the perfect names of illustrations and understood, but if not, we're going to go over it again and again, you know, inshallah, okay. So, here we have a chart. What does it say at the top of the chart? Well, it's not a chart Actually, this is the circles huh?
description and inside of that, we have an attribute and then we have name. So what is important here is to understand distinguish the name from what might resemble the name, the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala are the smallest, the, the least of all of what Allah Subhana Allah is described with, meaning that
I think with examples that have become clear and shallow time, like we just mentioned, who memorized sort of the target here? Anybody?
Okay? in the home Yaki Duna Qaeda, okay? What's that mean? in the home, your key doing a Kaiden? Indeed they are
plotting they're plotting a plot. We don't really speak like that, but we'll leave it like that for now. They are plotting a plot and then a last minute I said what what a key do Qaeda and I am also plotting,
okay. Can we call so so what is this here? What would we say that is a description attribute or what?
Allah Subhana Allah is describing what he
Does, okay. So, okay, that's fine. That's a description. What we say that allows for hammer data is the plotter. No, no, no. Okay.
Could we say? Because you know, this is where people get this from? Cook, we say that a law is the best of planners.
Yes, no, maybe. So?
Is that a name of a law? No. So it's not a name of a law to say that he is the best of planners? And if what do you mean by saying that a law is the best of planners? What do you mean by that?
So most, most people don't use it that way. Most people use it in a sense that they were intending to do something, but a lot of the cream for them something else. And so they say, I wanted to do A, B, C and D but allows the best stuff of planners. In this sense. We're doing what we're describing a lot as being the one who has decreed for me what was better for me, and that's fine if you use it in that context. The problem is, most people are actually taking it from that concept of plotting.
And that's not what it's not what it means. That's not what that means. All right.
But the point is here that we have what descriptions allows me to add it says in the Quran, why am Karuna William Kuru law? What law who hiral makarim? Was that me? We m court and Mecca. Was that? That that's that that's that plan that has some?
Sorry. It was like a scheme. Right? Right. scheming. Young kudos. They're scheming? Well, young caught a lot, but a lot of schemes are low. Hey, Ron McLean. And he is the best of those who scheme? Now? Yes, ultra dial is described with that quality. But again, you're not going to call a law and make if you're not gonna call him the schemer, what do you have the villa? God forbid, is that something we're gonna describe a last minute Allah, because he didn't give himself that name. And that's not a perfect name. That's not melasma and Hostnet. It's not from the best names.
So what we have to see is that there may be an attribute that allows for an antibiotic that aligns with Joe has, that does not necessarily translate into a name.
And so, for those of you who know a little bit about Arabic, what the scholars say here is that babble Esma, a hustle
that the when we talk about the names of Allah Subhana, Allah, that this subject is the most specific of all of the subjects related to a lost train of thought his names and attributes. Were babble, buddy, oh, sack, oh, son of word. And that when we talk about how to describe a loss of data, then this is there's a lot of leeway there, as long as it doesn't carry a negative meaning.
So we can say for example, we say you hear people say it all the time. Allahu
Allah, Allah Stan, what's that mean? He is the one in whom aid is sought is almost an from the names of Allah. No, it's not from the names of Allah. But we're describing that he is the one from whom we seek a loan or or eight. So we're describing it, but the names No, that's a smaller, it's a smaller section. All right.
Okay, quickly, we'll go through this determining laws names, there's four basic approaches, all right, not going to read it. The first one is those scholars who strictly rely on that weak Hadith that I talked to you about, alright, so they say Allah is 99 names, here they are, here's the Hadith, we're done. All right.
There is a second
approach. And that is only the approach of urban hazama haimo, low tide and nobody else took this approach when it came to the names of LA and that is he restricts the laws names, only to that which has the proper form of a name or an ism in the Arabic language, not one that has been derived from a verb, nor one that is moved on. So I'll give you example, when we say moved off. I talk about this stuff in English, but I'll give you an example. We a law says in the Quran, Allahu mourou semi wetty. wile out. A law is the light of the heavens and the earth. Allah didn't say he is ignored. He said he's What? The light of the heavens and the earth. A law says man Leakey Yomi de he is the one
The owner of or medic eo Medina, the king of the Day of Judgment. Right now there are other IBC where he says medical, right? So that's different. But But do semi whitey will art? Have you ever heard anybody's name? Abdul budhia
Hmm, that is
because LBD according to most of the scholars is the name of Allah. But Allah as we shall never call himself Elba deer in the Quran, it comes buddy SMRT will have. So in other words, even hasm doesn't accept any of those, he restricts it all into that which comes in the form of a an ism, which inshallah, as we go on will become clear, you're gonna come back and you can say, I understand that stuff when I went back, and I look now and get it all right, number three, and that's fine. You know, knowledge is like that. Knowledge is like anything else, the first time you do it, a lot of times you don't get it, right. So you have to do it again. And you do it again, like any trade that
you do, or any anything for that matter, fight. The third is those who are lenient and determine the laws names, such that they derive a name from each of the laws, attributes and actions, they will say that from a laws names
maket you know, all of the things we just said no, no, we can't name a law that they'll say yes, because Allah, this Allah subhanaw taala describes himself with this and so therefore, because he described himself with that, we can give him a name from that and that's incorrect. type. Then the last and this is the Yeah, this is the part we're going to follow or these are the scholars that will be following inshallah scholars who chose a moderate course between the two previous approaches. And they made certain stipulations as indicated by proofs in the Quran and Sunnah for deriving a name from an attribute. So not every attribute will we derive a name from of Allah
Subhana data from but some of them we will and again, this will become clear as we go forward, inshallah. So, I want you right now, together, we're going to do this exercise. Identify the names of a lot. What sorta is this
Sora class? Okay. Bismillah R. Rahman r Rahim.
Is that from sort of a class or no?
No, so we're just sort of the class start. kulu Allahu Ahad, pious. What Names of Allah Subhana Allah Do you see there and the first verse,
I had, I had, is that a name of allah or Allah had?
I had this they say Allah ahead. So where is where did you how did you get the name of Allah?
but that doesn't say Allah.
If you took a lot away You said kulu I hadn't? s That's correct. I mean, it's not the Quran but i'm saying is correct in terms of a name. Not all of the names of Allah Subhana Allah are going to come with an elephant lamb in front however when you when Allah subhanho wa Taala. When you talk about Allah Subhana Allah with that name or you put it in front of it, you're going to add the elephant the lamb because he is the only one that is described like that. So He is Allah subhana wa jal.
Allahu samedi Allah who summit what names do you see there? A la and a summit a summit. Okay. Let me let him You let any names there. No, while I'm here, coo coo coo and ahead any names there
No, no, no, no. Well, I'm Nicola who, Khufu and a Hotez? Nobody.
That is that is equal to him. Yeah, that's not that's not me. Here. This I had is not a name of Allah. Here. This is not named moolah. Alright, so what I want you to do very quickly take 30 seconds with your partner. Identify the names of Allah and sort of Al Fatiha
with your partner Bismillah father.
Not talking loud enough.
Henrik Scheffer. Take
All right 30 seconds is up Believe it or not.
I gave you a fair shot. All right, so so let's okay so let's start first I what are the names of last night that you see?
All right, so I'm gonna I'm gonna go against the grain here. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim even so as fast as not from the ayat, but we will go with the way it's written here. So Allah Rahman Rahim, we're going to come again. Alright, so for a second I according to the way it's numbered here, Al hamdu lillahi wa.
Alhambra is the name of Allah. Abdul hunt. Don't name your son Abdul hunt.
Ham design Name of Allah.
Allah is the name of Allah.
Okay, here again for those of you stay a little bit, a little bit of Arabic, we have moved off and moved off la here what Bill Allah me. Even hazard is going to say here, Rob is not a name of a law because Madoff In this sense, but that I'm not saying he says that it's not named Willa, but because it comes in other forums about Bill alameen. So a rub is the name of Allah subhanaw taala. Yeah, and then we have our Amana Rahim. And then we have what, Maliki or Medina or medic Yama de illmatic is the name of Allah, Allah Malik is the name of Allah Subhana. Allah Yakubu is gonna stay in and that's the end of very quickly inshallah, our method of studying we're going to close out now so we
can pray. inshallah Tada, our method of study will be as follows be in the legs out of each name, we're going to cover the following six points, this is critical, I want you to understand it, because starting from next week, we're going to go straight in, we're going to refer back to things that we covered today, so that you'll get a good sense
of what we were talking about. All right. So the first thing that we're going to do is we're going to identify the name, in other words, allows name or Walkman of our hymn of love Allah and Isla to the end of it, what's the name, this The second thing where she
You needed to pick the day.
Number two, the evidence for that name, the evidence for that name. So anytime you say that last minute dial, his name is such and such, we need to have evidence for that from the Quran from the Sunni needs to be very clear, because we only know names through revelation. Number three, we're going to mention some of the scholars who have affirmed that name. So we have early books that have
considered they've done a considerate job of gathering a lot of parents out as names, there's a book Bible katabi, there's another book by the Monday, there's another book by Porter to be to the end of it. And we'll cover some contemporary scholars as well, then we'll get into number four, some of its meanings. And this is going to be critical. What does this name mean only from a linguistic perspective, primarily, but also some of the the the meanings that it carries in the text.
Number five, the importance of knowing this name and some of the benefits for belief and practice of knowing this name. And number five is where we're going to concentrate.
Because for each one of these names, there is a specific form of a Bader that is related to that name. And so when we learn these names, we're going to learn how to worship Allah subhanaw taala. Through those names in the lion, China, the sixth is going to be what I'm calling subtleties, because I couldn't think of another another name for them. But we're going to be looking at some of the more the subtle aspects of this name. For example, this name may come in conjunction with other names in the Quran. Why is that? Let's look at for example, lost parents data says in the cry, do you have fear whom will jubran look down here at the bottom? Do you feel Maduro? Where is he the
homophobe Lee in the hula hula Shaku. So the first I Allah Subhana Allah says those who recite the book of Allah and establish the prayer and they give from that which we have provided them openly and in secret. They are hoping for business that will always be profitable.
Because if you do, if you do business with a loss of Hannah to Allah, it's always profitable.
When you do a good deed, Allah Subhana Allah multiplies that at least 10 times in any business that you know of. They're not looking for 10 times they looking for 10% is like great. double digit return on investment. So that's that's an investment worth making. No, this is not double digit.
10 times over quadruple digits, all right, up to 700 times
your June a tea gelatin lentil board, they want to do business that will never be unprofitable, and will always be profitable. Leo fear whom will do wrong, that he may pay them back fully their rewards will use either home infinitely. So not only does the last minute Allah give them the reward for what they've done, but he increases them meaningfully, because he's gracious somehow. So so he's not just going to give them their due. He's going to give them even more and be in the hookah food on Shaku surely he is Forgiving and Appreciative. So here we have two names of Allah subhanaw taala. What are they? The four and Shaco Okay, now, Shaka, Shaka this name which which we've translated as
appreciative what is the relationship with appreciative here it's pretty clear right? Because the fact that last pantalla appreciates your deeds He rewards you for them
but that name comes into crime four times three times the name Chicago comes in the car I will and we've talked about this with with the majority of the names that we talked about how many times to come into crime to enter
the name Chicago comes into crime four times three times it's the foreign shocker three times when it comes to crime what is the relationship between the four and Chicago
so from his appreciation
of you striving to please Him, He forgives you your sense that's good. That's good Anybody else?
Okay, so in order for you to even attain that appreciation from Allah is fantastic. You first need to be forgiven for your what for your deficiencies and your and your and your bad deeds type. Anybody else? No, those are good points shape.
So when sir, when a person seeks forgiveness, a loss of data is appreciative of that. Right? Okay. here's, here's another way to look at this and a Lost Planet Allah knows best in the Hoover forum. shocker. He is Shaku because of what
your good deeds.
One of the best things that you can do in fact, after the Shahada team, the best thing that you can do is what? Salah your first Salah What do you say immediately after you finish your photo Salah stuff, Allah subhanaw taala starts with the love. Why do you say stuff for the law? Yeah. Because even in those good deeds that you're doing, there's deficiency. And so Allah Subhana Allah is before he forgives, even those deficiencies that are part of the good that you're doing, so he's got food on shockula All right. These are the things in the late childhood that we're going to study these under the subject of subtleties. That'll be the last part that we get to an each of the names of
Allah subhanaw taala that we cover We ask Allah Subhana Allah for his tool feet, we ask a lot of hands Allah to increase us and beneficial knowledge and unrighteous actions with Solo Solo robotic and then Amina Mohammed
