00:00:01--> 00:00:04

Karim Allah god fairuza we let him in a shape on the virgin Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. furbish lockleaze suddenly were Sidley MD, Washington determine the signing of koko de Urbanus ignoramus.

00:00:21--> 00:00:26

So the names of the last panel data of Allah have an Mateen

00:00:27--> 00:00:27

What

00:00:29--> 00:00:31

do we learn from these names?

00:00:32--> 00:00:33

Did you do your homework?

00:00:35--> 00:00:43

So, raise your hand and tell me what it means. And what suffer of a loss of panel data do we learn from this name?

00:00:45--> 00:00:47

Okay, oh, it means the kind. So.

00:00:48--> 00:00:52

Okay, so we learn about his favor his generosity of compassion, okay.

00:00:53--> 00:01:03

Okay, if you say in one word, what suffer with suffer? Do we learn from the name of the sofa?

00:01:06--> 00:01:11

The sofa off the sofa off kindness, of affection.

00:01:12--> 00:01:21

The name of Allah, Allah hab and Wahab what sayfa of Allah? Do we learn from the name and Wahab?

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

What's the meaning of the name? And what have

00:01:26--> 00:01:34

I asked you to all three names? How difficult was it? You just needed to reflect on these names for literally two minutes? Even one minute would have been sufficient?

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

The one who gives What?

00:01:38--> 00:01:43

gifts? The Giver of gifts. Okay, so what's it like to be like?

00:01:45--> 00:01:59

Okay, what hug means to give good. So we learn about the safer off? What have meaning the one who gives HIPAA? Can you give me an example of where this cipher is demonstrated?

00:02:00--> 00:02:05

In the Quran? specifically? Where do we learn about the cipher? It was example?

00:02:07--> 00:02:42

What will happen hoping? Well, we'll have another who, and we give it to him? Who is how can you send him to Ibrahim anism. In his case, it is mentioned. Right? And also the other prophets that the word will have has been used over there. All right, Alma team, the name of Allah and Mateen. What does it mean? What does it mean? The one who is firm and strong. So the super off strength, firmness, we learn about a power we learned from these names.

00:02:43--> 00:02:47

So let's continue with our definition of the hate asthma or suffer.

00:02:49--> 00:03:06

So we learned about the meaning of asthma about the meaning of that. Then in the definition, we learn that it is said sikhi Tabby, he or Allah lisanti Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the names and attributes that are mentioned were in his book or

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

in the Sunnah of the messenger.

00:03:10--> 00:03:58

So in other words, the names and attributes of Allah, where do we learn about them from only from where the Quran and from nowhere else? Meaning if there's a philosopher, if there's a thinker, and they come up with some definition of God, or some description of God, or some Name of God, do we accept it? No, only if it conforms with the Quran and Sunnah. Yes, but if it's based on their mere imagination, no, we're not going to accept it. What about a person's logic? No, we're not going to accept it. A lot of names and attributes are only to be taken from where? From the Quran and Sunnah. Why? Because we believe that the Quran and should not contain within it all that we need to know. So

00:03:58--> 00:04:40

if there's anything that we need to know about Allah, about his names about his attributes, the information is already there in the Quran and Sunnah. In Sorrento, Islam is number 12. Allah says wakulla Shea in for Salah who the sila everything we have given in detail we have explained in detail. So even the details that we need to know about his names and attributes, they're given in the Quran, so we don't need to turn to anything else. Likewise, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he informed us all that we need to know. In the Quran, Allah addresses messenger in certain manga is 67 that he or you have a soul by lil ma on to the economic convey everything that has been

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

given to you from your Lord. So when we believe that the messenger sallallahu Sallam conveyed everything that he was given, then we only rely upon the Quran and Sunnah. We don't turn to anything else. So the prophets are a lot of them informed us about everything that we need to know

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

This is why the Sunnah is sufficient for us the Quran is sufficient for us. Likewise any guidance other than the guidance of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam What is it? Miss guidance that is not guidance. So if we're taking from the Quran and Sunnah, that is guidance that is correct. If we're taking from somewhere else, about Allah about his names about his attributes, remember that his misguidance intellect nor I 54, we learn what into clear rule that if you obey the messenger, then you're rightly guided, which means that if you abandon his teachings, and if you turn to something else, and that would be misguidance so if a person is learning about Allah, about his attributes

00:05:39--> 00:05:43

from some other source, that would be incorrect.

00:05:44--> 00:06:02

Also, the sacred texts are in clear language, the Quran and Sunnah in clear language, they're not ambiguous. This is why they are a source of guidance for us. And this is why we should rely upon the Quran and Sunnah in order to learn about Allah Subhana Allah

00:06:03--> 00:06:25

and we see that the way of the righteous before us the way of the Salah was what that they would take from where the Quran and the sooner therefore, we also have to take from the Quran and Sunnah and from the understanding of the righteous predecessors before us, when it comes to understanding the names and attributes of Allah.

00:06:26--> 00:06:26

So,

00:06:28--> 00:06:37

in his book, or upon the tongue of His Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then is back as mentioned in the definition, affirmation.

00:06:38--> 00:06:41

Before that, even his statement has mentioned

00:06:42--> 00:06:50

that Mr. Mohammed said, Allah is not to be described except with what he himself and as messenger have described him with.

00:06:52--> 00:07:34

And we do not exceed the boundaries of the Quran and Sunnah. What does it mean? Any description of Allah? Where do we take it from the Quran and Sunnah? Anything that is affirmed, we affirm that anything that is negated, we negate that. We don't make things up about a loss panel data we don't exceed the boundaries of the Quran and Sunnah. Because speaking about Allah subhanaw taala something that is not mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah that would be worth talking without knowledge. And what have we been told what our thought for mellissa could be here and don't follow that which you have no knowledge about? So if it's given in the Quran and Sunnah, then what does it mean? We have

00:07:34--> 00:07:44

been informed about it, we have that knowledge. And if it's not mentioned in the Quran, and Sunnah, then we're talking on the basis of ignorance and this is something that we must refrain from.

00:07:45--> 00:07:59

Then affirmation is that, what does it mean by that to affirm? So we affirm all the names and attributes of Allah that are found in the Quran and Sunnah. How, in a manner that is befitting to Allah soprano.

00:08:01--> 00:08:06

So, for instance, in the Quran, certain attributes of Allah mentioned, for instance, his hand,

00:08:08--> 00:08:54

for instance, his anger, his speech, okay. So, all of these attributes, we understand how, in a manner befitting to Allah, meaning we don't resemble these attributes with the attributes of the creation, all right, nor do we reject them? No, we understand them in a manner that is befitting to who Allah soprano and at the same time, we negate all attributes which are negated in the Quran, and Sunnah. Now, there's many attributes of a loss of penalty that we learn about from the Quran, Sunnah, and you can categorize them into three. First of all, his attributes are that the year

00:08:56--> 00:09:08

meaning pertaining to his that his self, his big, we learn about the fact that he has a that we learn about the fact that he has a knucks gotta borrow from Alana.

00:09:10--> 00:09:14

So the word nuts is used for a lot. What does it show that he has itself?

00:09:15--> 00:09:59

Alright? Because there are some who say, No, God is just some kind of force. No, it's not just some force, he is a being the word that has been used to describe him. knifes has been used. So we believe that God exists as a being as he that he has it up. And we see that there are some attributes that describe a loss of primal garden. Like for example, we learn about his hands into the cloud is 75. The last paragraph says Kalia at least monarca ancestry destiny Mahalo to be a year with my both hands. Elsewhere, we learned bonito mobile super Dan. His hands are both

00:10:00--> 00:10:53

outstretch me spending and we also learn about his face, we learned that Allah has is in sort of a a 27 wearable covered a lot bigger, though generally when a wearable would not be the face of your Lord colusa in halleck illa wotja. So his word is mentioned, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sought refuge in the face of Allah, right or to be wedged he also we learned in the Quran, we are told to seek the face of Allah. So the face of Allah, he has a face. Likewise, we learn about his eyes into the tool, if 48 was Billy, hook me up Baker for inika, we are using the patient for the command of your Lord, You are under our eyes, meaning we are watching you, we are looking at you. All right.

00:10:54--> 00:10:56

Likewise, we learn about his fingers.

00:10:58--> 00:10:58

Were

00:11:00--> 00:11:11

in the hadith of Muslim in which we learned that the heart of the children of Adam and the son of Adam is where between the two fingers of our man so he changes the heart as he will.

00:11:12--> 00:11:28

So two fingers, we learn about fingers also. Now when it comes to these attributes which are pertaining to his that, remember, we affirm them, we believe in them. And we believe that they are how, in a manner that they they fit unless

00:11:29--> 00:11:55

we don't reject them, we don't go on describing them. We don't resemble them to the creation, we don't resemble them to anything. Now, other attributes of a loss of penalty, the second group is of what Martina we're meaning those attributes of Allah which are minor D minor, D minor. So, these attributes are for instance, his knowledge, his qudra his life, his will,

00:11:56--> 00:12:23

instead of the follow up I have 12 we learned litella mo and Allah Allah policia included he has control over everything, what anila the health of the condition in the attribute off and likewise inserted it 53 what I can ally if I know now you read the attribute up in order, right his intention. The third one the third group is of those attributes which are fairly,

00:12:24--> 00:12:47

fairly is from from meaning the actions that a lot of pan Canada like for example, His descending, his ascending, creating, sustaining. For instance, in a hadith and Muslim. We learned that the prophets on Madison said our Lord descends every night to the lowest heaven

00:12:48--> 00:12:53

when the last third of the night remains. So we learned that the loss of panatela descends.

00:12:54--> 00:13:00

Likewise, we learn into law if I have a man and an hour, she is still

00:13:01--> 00:13:30

angry. Likewise, we learn about the action of Hulk right in so many places in the Quran, for example, an arm is 73 Well, who already have a personality, right? Likewise, in sort of Baccarat, 212, one level yo zuku he provides in intro to fragile we learn about the coming of a lot of Panasonic right, what are buka and your Lord will come.

00:13:31--> 00:14:19

So, remember that his attributes are three kinds, one that a year. Secondly, minor we're and thirdly, fairly and all of these attributes, what do we believe concerning them? We affirm them for Allah because he has informed us of them. And secondly, we believe in them in a manner that is befitting to a loss of planning time, we don't describe them from our own imagination, all right, and then there are certain terms which are mentioned over here, but we believe in all of these names and attributes mean later, whenever a clean one innovate achieve one item see now what are these terms? First of all, the leaf, what does the leaf mean? The hip is from how often you have to put

00:14:19--> 00:14:22

the head in what does it mean to change to alter?

00:14:23--> 00:14:36

Remember that the money is what you get up they used to you had reformed alchemy, they used to change the words right that Allah subhanaw taala had revealed. So the grief is of how many kinds

00:14:38--> 00:14:38

two kinds

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

the love Leah and the grief Martin area. So one is to do the grief of the words to change the word whether it is changing the spellings adding a letter removing a letter, adding a word removing a word, changing the air Bob, right. So that the meaning it becomes

00:15:00--> 00:15:14

completely different. So one is the haIf love we show the hate love Leah. And this has existed meaning that there have been people who have done this kind of relief when it comes to Allah's names when it comes to these attributes to give them a completely different meaning.

00:15:15--> 00:15:34

Because they don't want to believe that Allah subhanaw taala has certain attributes. They don't want to believe that a lot of panel data, he performs certain actions. So for instance, some people they said, a man out of Rochester, but a lot of panatela did st work. What does he want me

00:15:35--> 00:15:57

to raise? Now this is an action, right? They don't want to believe that a lot of panel data perform this action because they just want to believe that a lie some kind of force has nothing to do with us. He's just, you know, some force behind all of this. And he he doesn't do any actions, nothing like that. So they said it's the law. No, no, it's not actually it's the way it's actually Stoller

00:15:58--> 00:16:04

is Stoller, they added the letter, lamb to the word is Stella. This is what the

00:16:05--> 00:16:06

lovely

00:16:08--> 00:16:21

lovely is Stella means to conquer. So they say that no, no, doesn't mean that he rose, it just means that he's the highest. There is none above him. There's none greater than him. He's the most powerful force

00:16:22--> 00:16:26

that has been victorious over every other force. This is what they say.

00:16:27--> 00:16:42

Likewise, in the Quran, we learn what kind of Allahu Moosa the cleaner the change is to work in lemon law ha, Musa, Allahu, Allah, ha, the Arab has been changed. How does that change the meaning?

00:16:43--> 00:16:53

What can lemon law who means a law spoke? What can lemon law have means a level of spoken with? Meaning Moosa spoke to Allah

00:16:54--> 00:16:56

because Allah doesn't speak.

00:16:58--> 00:17:06

So the Quran is not the word of of my talk speech. It's just another creation. So, this is what kind of

00:17:08--> 00:17:08

lovely

00:17:09--> 00:17:18

likewise wotja or Bukola kusa from suffer, they don't want to believe that Allah will come, this action. So what do they say, we

00:17:20--> 00:17:38

have, the armor of your Lord will come, meaning the command of your Lord, not that God himself will come not his command will come. So they add a word. And this is playing with which words, the words of the Quran, the exact same thing that the bunny is fighting for us.

00:17:39--> 00:17:45

Then the second type of behavior is the minor we do not change the word, but change the meaning.

00:17:46--> 00:17:55

And when the meaning is changed, and what will happen, the original meaning is left. So for example, we learn about the name of a las panatela.

00:17:57--> 00:17:58

What flavor does it give us?

00:17:59--> 00:18:12

of Rama, have mercy. Allah is Allah meaning he shows mercy. So there are some who say no, no, it doesn't mean that he has mercy. Because human beings have mercy.

00:18:13--> 00:18:39

creation has mercy. They say No, God does not have mercy. If you say that he has mercy, then you are resembling him with who with the creation. So this man does not mean he has Rama. What it means is, in order to accept that he just intends to show some kind of compassion and kindness to the creation. It's just the desire to show kindness.

00:18:40--> 00:18:45

But the fact is that Allah himself has described himself with what

00:18:47--> 00:19:40

likewise, I say ohada Allah doesn't get angry. No, it just means that he will punish certain people. No robot has been used, which means that Allah does get angry. Anger means that he will punish people, but it also means that he became angry. Right? Likewise bellido Matsuda time they changed the meaning of yet from hand to what? generosity or power and strength so this is also a kind of live money. So what do we understand that when it comes to the names and attributes of Allah, we don't do any kind of, we don't change the meaning we don't change the word we accept it. At face value, we take it as is. The second thing that is mentioned is that

00:19:41--> 00:19:53

we don't do therapy what is the athlete the athlete is from our father. What happened is to abandon in the Quran would be even more abala is mentioned. What is Apollo

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

abandoned well, so the appeal is basically to

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

Abandon

00:20:02--> 00:20:36

the description that has been given. So it is basically to negate some or all of the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala and remove them from Allah. To say that no, these attributes don't exist for Allah, these are not the qualities of Allah. These are not the characteristics of Allah, it is to abandon them. So, for instance, to say that Allah, He describes himself as Samir, but it's just figurative, it doesn't mean that he actually hears

00:20:37--> 00:20:56

lot has been described as Albacete, it doesn't mean that he actually sees this is what that mean, if he has said that he hears, if he have said that he sees, and we believe that he hears and sees, we don't abandon these attributes, we don't negate them from Allah.

00:20:57--> 00:21:47

Because who knows best about almost Pankaj, he himself. So when he has informed us, then we have to accept it, we don't abandon these descriptions. Then the third thing that is mentioned is that leave the key is from the word gave, what this gave me paper, how. So the key is to describe the attributes of Allah, his names, so for instance, to talk about, let's see his life and to talk about how he has life, how is his hearing? How is he seeing, how is this coming? Alright, how is his laughing?

00:21:48--> 00:21:53

So, in other words, it is to describe the nature of his attributes.

00:21:54--> 00:21:57

Like for example, human beings,

00:21:58--> 00:22:03

can we describe the nature of human attributes? Yes. Why?

00:22:04--> 00:22:10

Because we have seen them, right. Like, for example, if we say that

00:22:11--> 00:22:35

this person is laughing, and somebody says how we can describe their laughing, sound, open mouth, deep showing, alright, these are what case, this is the key. We can explain human attributes, because we have seen them. But when it comes to a lot of attributes, remember that we stay away from the chief.

00:22:36--> 00:23:10

We believe that yes, Allah has a hand, we believe that he has fingers. But we don't go on describing their size, their length, their weight, their color, their number, their texture, no, we don't go into this detail, why, because a lot of panel data has not informed us of these details. And when he has not informed us of these details, it is incorrect to speak about something without knowledge, what a thoughtful man a Celica be hearing

00:23:12--> 00:23:32

also, his nature is unknown to us. And we cannot imagine beyond the world that is known to us. Right? We can only imagine within the limits of our experience. So if we start imagining fingers, we can only imagine fingers that we have seen, you understand.

00:23:33--> 00:23:41

Think about it a color, for instance, red color, can you explain the color red to someone who was born blind?

00:23:43--> 00:23:56

Can you Why? Because he has no idea he's ever seen. You can't explain the color red to them. Likewise, we human beings can never understand the true nature of of laws attributes

00:23:58--> 00:24:01

right? Why? Because we have not seen a law

00:24:02--> 00:24:08

and the fact is that there is nothing that is like a law Labor Committee shape.

00:24:09--> 00:24:12

Right? Yala Medina ad him

00:24:13--> 00:24:59

What Are you hopeful They'll be here in the into the Baja i a 110. Allah says, When are you gonna be here in my body cannot encompass him in knowledge. So just like a blind person cannot understand what red is. we human beings cannot understand the nature of Allah attributes, the Cave of his attributes, we can't understand that. Because the actuality of something can only be known in one of these three ways. One way is to see an examine something yourself. When you see it, you examine it, then you know the nature. The second way is that you don't see it but somebody else has seen it, and then they describe those details to you. All right, and the third is that

00:25:00--> 00:25:23

You are shown something similar. And then you are told the similarities and differences. So for example, you ask that. So until a person who didn't look like I haven't seen them, let's say for example, a baby is born somewhere, you haven't seen the baby. So you ask, Who does the baby look like? They say, oh, his nose is like this person and his cheeks are like this person and his eyes are like this person.

00:25:24--> 00:25:57

So, because of this, you can get to understand the nature of his features. But the fact is that when it comes to the attributes of Allah, we have never seen them ourself. Secondly, nobody has described them to us. Because Where can we get these descriptions from from the Quran and Sunnah? If the Quran and Sunnah are silent about these descriptions, then we can't find out about them. And thirdly, laser committed, there's nothing like him. So we can't even look at something and say that okay, aloes like that.

00:25:59--> 00:26:07

So you understand that if we have to stay away from therefore, we affirm His attributes without thinking about how

00:26:09--> 00:26:23

we affirm all his attributes, all his names, whether it is his laughing, or it is his anger, or it is his speaking, we affirm all these attributes, without thinking about how,

00:26:25--> 00:26:49

right human beings when we speak, we speak from a mouth, we have a tongue, we have teeth, we have a voice box inside, all right. But we don't say that unless Panther has these things, because he has not informed us about all right. And remember that going into how is visualization, imagination, and this is something that we have to stay away from.

00:26:50--> 00:26:53

This is why when Mr. Malik when he was asked about St.

00:26:56--> 00:26:56

Man and

00:26:57--> 00:27:16

the raising of the last panel brother that How was it? What is it? Mr. Maliki got upset? And what did he say? And if they were late, Ahmed, who is to what is not unknown, meaning it is my rule, we know that it's happened, because Allah, Allah says in the Quran multiple times that he did it.

00:27:17--> 00:27:54

And he said, One cave way to mark on the cave is not understandable, meaning we cannot understand it. It's beyond the scope of our understanding. So we don't delve into that. well enough to be here. Why'd you believing in it is mandatory? Why? Because Allah has mentioned in the Quran too, we have to believe in it, and was to Allah and who be there, and asking about it is an innovation. Because the Sahaba never asked the Prophet sallallahu sallam, how does Allah go up? How does Allah go down? How does Allah rise? No, they didn't ask the questions. So we should also refrain from such questions.

00:27:56--> 00:28:08

So is the matter of the key clear to you? The key is in summary, what describing the attributes of Allah, we have to stay away from it Why? Because we can never know

00:28:10--> 00:28:25

all right, and if Allah has not informed us, then there is no benefit in getting into this. And the fourth thing that is mentioned is STEM fields. What is concealed from mean fella right Matter What does matter mean example description,

00:28:26--> 00:28:37

certain thing is the belief that the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala are like the attributes of such and such creation.

00:28:38--> 00:28:48

You understand? So basically, it is to say that Allah is like, such and such and this is something that we have to refrain from.

00:28:49--> 00:29:02

For instance, if a person says Allah has a hand and Allah's hand is like the hand off, such and such, Allah has eyes and Allah eyes are like, such and such.

00:29:03--> 00:29:06

When we say Allah has eyes, we have to stop there.

00:29:07--> 00:29:27

Okay? We don't go beyond that. Unless eyes are like such No, that is incorrect. We say Allah hears, but we don't say Allah hears like such and such. We believe that Allah sees, but we don't say Allah sees like such and such. So you understand?

00:29:28--> 00:29:59

Because Allah says in the Quran, laser comically shape, there is nothing like him for that who delay him and Sal, he has forbidden us explicitly, do not strike, examples, similarities for Allah because there is nothing like him in the law higher level what and don't let the other more he knows and you do not know. So when you don't know, then don't talk without knowledge. All right. So these are four matters that we have to stay away from

00:30:00--> 00:30:00

What

00:30:02--> 00:30:23

that will clean them see? And the key, these are four matters that we have to stay away from. So when we stay away from them, then what does it mean? In summary? What is it that we believe about unless names and attributes? Three things? In summary, three things. Firstly,

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

you have to write this down yourself, okay?

00:30:28--> 00:30:42

Firstly, that we believe in only that name, and only that attribute that Allah has informed us off in the Quran, or through His Messenger.

00:30:44--> 00:30:44

And

00:30:45--> 00:31:03

when we believe in only what he has informed us off, then it also includes adopting silence concerning matters that we have not been informed. So if there is some detail, which Allah subhanaw taala has not told us about, then we remain silent concerning that.

00:31:04--> 00:31:06

Like, for example, Allah has told us

00:31:08--> 00:31:12

that he rose on his throne. We know that he is on the throne.

00:31:13--> 00:31:48

But he has not informed us about his direction that which direction does he face? South, East, North West. I mean, he has not informed us about that. So we don't invent these things. He has informed us that he has a fish, all right. But he has not informed us of certain features. So we don't make those things up. So remember, that we affirm only that which he has told us about. And we remain silent concerning matters that he has not told us about.

00:31:49--> 00:32:15

The angels. What did they say? So panikkar? There in Milena inla, Merlin Tanner, we don't know anything except that you have taught us the only thing that we know about you is what what you've told us. And if you haven't told us about something, we have no idea about it. So we're not going to talk about it. We're not going to speak without knowledge. You see the angels are so wise. They didn't make things up. When Allah asked them, tell me the names of these things. They didn't say,

00:32:17--> 00:32:32

maybe it's this. Maybe it's that? No. They said we don't know because you didn't teach us. So likewise, we don't use our imagination, to guess his attributes to guess his descriptions. We admit our ignorance over there.

00:32:33--> 00:32:36

Secondly, we affirm for him,

00:32:37--> 00:32:39

what he has affirmed.

00:32:40--> 00:32:47

We affirm for him what he has affirmed without any doubt, that give or take should be

00:32:49--> 00:32:51

alright. So for example,

00:32:52--> 00:32:55

in the Hadith, in Bukhari, we learn and Muslim that

00:32:56--> 00:33:03

Allah subhana wa, Tada. He descends. So we affirm that he descends. We don't do it to the hive.

00:33:05--> 00:33:06

We don't do it strapline.

00:33:07--> 00:33:30

We don't abandon it. The slipper? We don't do. It's the key that we start describing the speed at which a lot comes down that would have been left. No, we don't do that should be that we start to resemble his descending with the descending of the creation. No, we stay away from these matters. The third point is that we negate from him what he has negated. We negate from him what he has.

00:33:31--> 00:33:45

And remember that this negation is part of His perfection. So for example, in the Quran, we don't let the honorable senator with no sleep slumber do not overcome him. So we negate sleep and slumber from a loss of power.

00:33:46--> 00:34:03

And this negation is one part of perfection. He's perfect. This is why sleep is not overpower him. Like wasn't even before Bukhari, we learned the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Oh people be merciful to yourselves, for you are not calling upon one who is deaf or absent.

00:34:04--> 00:34:14

So from this Hadith, what do we know? That Allah is not that Allah is not absent? So we negate these two from almost

00:34:15--> 00:34:19

all right, likewise in a decent Buhari, we learned in the law Laserbeak.

00:34:21--> 00:34:25

Allah is not one eyed. So we negate this

00:34:26--> 00:34:35

description of being one eyed from Allah Pentagon. Likewise, in Hadith Muslim, we learned in the La hilarya nammo. Allah does not sleep.

00:34:36--> 00:34:38

So we negate sleep from Allah.

00:34:40--> 00:34:42

So in summary, what is it that we believe

00:34:43--> 00:34:54

only what he has informed us? We affirm everything that he has mentioned, and we negate everything that he has negated.

00:34:55--> 00:35:00

And you know what? We might not be aware of everything.

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

The thing that Allah has mentioned, everything that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has informed us.

00:35:05--> 00:35:09

But if we have this belief, that intelligence but equally

00:35:11--> 00:35:12

we understand.

00:35:13--> 00:35:17

There are many attributes of Allah which are mentioned in the center, but we don't know about them.

00:35:20--> 00:35:32

But if we have this belief that Allah, if you have described yourself in such and such manner, then I believe, I believe in everything that you have a farm, and I negate everything that you have negated from yourself.

00:35:33--> 00:35:36

So this belief in Sharla, will save a person.

00:35:37--> 00:35:43

Now I've been hammered the number fighters teacher, he said, Whoever says that a lot resembles the creation has committed.

00:35:45--> 00:35:51

And whoever denies what Allah has described himself, as then he has also committed

00:35:53--> 00:35:55

who, the one who deny

00:35:57--> 00:36:06

what Allah subhanaw taala has described himself. So remember, that we take from the Quran and Sunnah and we stop there.

00:36:08--> 00:36:14

We say Allah has a particular attribute, and we stopped it, we don't go into the description.

00:36:15--> 00:36:34

So this was the definition of the heat and asthma was. Now there are other definitions of the heater last night was so bad. And in that we also learn what Emanuel Bhima Neha Academy her and believing in their meanings, and their rulings,

00:36:35--> 00:36:38

believing in their meanings and their rulings money. And

00:36:40--> 00:36:44

so when it comes to the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala, there's two things

00:36:45--> 00:36:50

that we have to remember that, first we believe in their meanings.

00:36:51--> 00:36:55

We believe in the meanings that these attributes possess. So for example,

00:36:57--> 00:37:06

we believe that Allah has Rama, we believe that he has Aryan, we believe that he has what? To believe in their meanings.

00:37:07--> 00:37:09

And secondly, there are

00:37:10--> 00:37:17

what does that mean? That we believe in the rulings that we derive from these names and attributes?

00:37:18--> 00:37:19

So for example,

00:37:21--> 00:37:23

the name of a lot of panels on a semi,

00:37:24--> 00:37:25

a semi?

00:37:26--> 00:37:28

What meaning does it convey?

00:37:29--> 00:37:46

What beliefs should we have, that Allah hears? What do we learn from this for ourselves, that we should be careful about what we say, in our hearts from our mouth, because Allah hears everything, so we should be careful about what we say.

00:37:48--> 00:38:08

So you understand, there's two aspects, one, believing it's about knowledge. And secondly, it's about our action, our worship, but what is it that we have to do? This is why we must know him by his names and attributes, and take our share of servitude from them.

00:38:09--> 00:38:16

To do things, we must know him by his names and attributes. And secondly, we must take our share of servitude from them.

00:38:17--> 00:38:28

So believe in the last names and attributes, it means, first of all, to believe that Allah possesses that particular name, to believe that Allah possesses that particular attribute. So for instance, a Samir

00:38:29--> 00:38:45

Allah has a yet Allah has eyes, we believe in that. Secondly, we believe in the meaning, the attribute that is indicated by that name. So for example, summer, is a sofa. And thirdly, we believe in the effects, the rulings the requisites associated to that name.

00:38:47--> 00:39:02

So, first of all, believe in the name. Secondly, a firm believer in the attribute that we learn about found that name? And thirdly, thirdly, its effect its rulings. What does it mean for us?

00:39:03--> 00:39:06

In total, our life I went at a loss as well as my

00:39:07--> 00:39:43

father, who will be here will allow us now to snap What does that mean? Allah has names, nor them, believe in them their meanings, because they're hoshina they're beautiful, they're meaningful. And secondly, once you have this knowledge and believe, then, take your share of servitude and what does that feather Whoo hoo BIA call upon him with those names. Now, what does it mean by calling upon Allah by those names? There are is a three times First of all, there are of masala supplication of request. So for example, we make to our era

00:39:45--> 00:39:47

or a rub rub is a

00:39:48--> 00:39:51

harlot medic with a bit in so many hours, what do we learn

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

a B, A B, Zb, a man. Now when a person says a beat Sydney

00:40:00--> 00:40:11

Alma is calling upon a lover His names and attributes, how are beat, oh my lord, you are the rub, you are the provider. So, you provide me with more knowledge,

00:40:12--> 00:40:17

you understand supplication of request, a lot of panel data is.

00:40:23--> 00:40:32

So, asking a lot of panel data for seller for peace, for safety for security. Second is often a supplication of praise,

00:40:33--> 00:41:10

supplication of praise, praising a loss of data with his names and attributes. So, for instance, a lahoma and test center, one main cost center developed the other genetic one. So, when a person says a lahoma, and the center or a lot You are a center, and from you is a synonym, this is praising Allah with his names and attributes. So, you understand, this is also something that we must do. And thirdly, draft output, supplication of worship,

00:41:12--> 00:41:25

supplication of worship, what does that mean? That a person performs an act of worship that is related to that particular name or attribute of Allah.

00:41:26--> 00:41:29

So, for example, Allah, Allah says he is

00:41:30--> 00:41:40

he is Mujib, so, what act of worship should we do? Because he is corrib and he is mujeeb and he is severe? What act of worship should we perform?

00:41:44--> 00:41:50

Right, he is near he is responsive and he hears. So, what act of worship should we do?

00:41:52--> 00:41:54

What should we do? Nothing?

00:41:55--> 00:42:05

Nothing? What are the other should we do? Dora? All right. Likewise, we see that a lot of panel data he is

00:42:07--> 00:42:09

will have here to give her a gift.

00:42:11--> 00:42:31

So, what act of worship should we do? What if we want something? asked him? And what do we learn that we should also get? We should also give? What do we learn about mercy, that you'll be merciful to those who are on the earth and the one who is in the sky will be merciful towards you.

00:42:32--> 00:42:41

Right, so when we show mercy to others, because Allah is merciful, and we want his mercy, then this is an act of worship.

00:42:42--> 00:43:22

So, you see, every name and attribute of a loss of data is directly related to our actions also, Allah has not informed us of his names and attributes, just to fulfill some formality. No, it's so that we worship Him, we praise Him, we ask him, we glorify Him, and we worship him accordingly. We worship him accordingly, it will kill him. He said, every name of his has associated to it a specific form of worship, on the basis of knowledge and understanding, and on the basis of state. What does it mean by this knowledge and understanding that having the knowledge of attribute and believing in it

00:43:23--> 00:43:25

is itself an act of worship?

00:43:26--> 00:44:06

having knowledge of that name, and attribute, believing in that name and attribute is what? Rather in itself? All right. And secondly, on the basis of state, what does that means that when the heart understands the meaning, is conscious of it responds to that meaning, and this awareness, it will reflect in the actions of a person in the thinking of the person? All right, so every name of this has associated to a specific form of worship, on the basis of knowledge and understanding, and on the basis of state. Now, I have some homework for you, which is that you have to select, it's written in your handout, a name of the last panel planner.

00:44:07--> 00:44:13

Secondly, you have to give it reference, it's proof. It's evidence, where is it mentioned? Which I have the plan, which Hadees?

00:44:14--> 00:44:16

Secondly, effects on even

00:44:17--> 00:44:50

that, what should we believe about Allah subhanaw taala. When we know that Allah has this name, right? Like for example, a sinner is Allah name. So what do we believe about Allah? Because he has the same assurance that he is the source of these, that he is perfect in every way. All right, is a clear And fourthly, worship that what act of worship should we perform? So for example, the DA Aloma international woman Priscilla developed developers,

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

we should say that because this is part of worshipping the last panel data by this name, so can you do this and inshallah this will be marked. This will be a part of your

00:45:00--> 00:45:18

Final mark for the subject of appeal. All right. And if you want to do more than one name, then you're more than welcome. right but the more you reflect on it, the better it will be in trouble. Now, the list of a list of names has also been provided to you. If you see

00:45:19--> 00:46:04

your life is a mess. Then you turn to

00:46:12--> 00:46:12

You fix my affairs for me? I'll moussaka the superior alcoholic, the creator Albury, the inventor, the maker al-musawi the fashioner, of the perpetual forgiving

00:46:29--> 00:47:00

so what Eman should we have when he is a law firm? That no matter what sin has been committed, and how many times what does it mean? Turn to Allah in order to seek forgiveness. This is the belief that we must have worship what worship should we perform beg Allah for forgiveness over and over again never be too shy to seek forgiveness from him a how the prevailing and we'll have the liberal restore the giver of gifts of reserved the continual provider

00:47:01--> 00:47:42

as Jamil the beautiful Allah Allah the highest and the fleet, the Helper, the giver of victory and Malik the owner and maleek the sovereign and hey, the EverLiving, giver of life, Allah you the Sustainer of all existence, the shelf statistic, when it comes to

00:49:37--> 00:49:39

what effect does it have on our image?

00:49:40--> 00:49:41

What imagined we have

00:49:42--> 00:49:44

when we believe that he is the source of life.

00:49:45--> 00:49:53

Never predict the birth of someone and never predict the death of someone because only he is the giver and taker of life.

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

And we're the only one that has the single unique a summer the eternal refuge.

00:50:00--> 00:50:51

According to the capable and not the perfect and ability and look at them the one who brings forward the promoter, the one who defers the postpone or a well the first and the last of law hit, the ascendant the apparent advancement, the unapparent, and worship, the all encompassing Alma doll, the supremely exalted above the Beneficent, at the web, the ever Accepting of repentance at the end, the Supreme judge, the giver of Recompense. It's from Dean, Maliki Ahmed Dean, what does the mean? judgment recompense, right. So the giver of recompense are full, the ever pardoning and the giver of prosperity. So if you want to prosper, if you want to go forward, then ask who are who are all the

00:50:51--> 00:51:17

affection of the kind ldls the generous UCLan the most generous Almanac the supremely generous. Isn't that amazing? The generous, the most generous, the Supreme, the generous of the pure Alinea, the independent, the rich and happy, the Gracious deed, the concealer, the one who conceals what our Fox

00:51:18--> 00:51:23

so when Allah has conceal the fault, then don't go and expose it yourself.

00:51:24--> 00:51:30

If a sin has been committed, and Allah concealed it for you, then what does it mean that we don't go and reveal it before others?

00:51:32--> 00:51:56

l Morrison, the benefactor Alola the supreme protector and Master Li Li the highest and Haffield The Guardian, the preserver or the the Supreme Leader capable, and where is the ultimate heir of her luck, the Supreme creator and were hailed the all encompassing a subu, the extensively glorified. So when he is extensively glorified, then what should we do?

00:51:57--> 00:52:39

glorify him What should we do? Do this this be morning and evening? So in conclusion, to believe in Allah subhanaw taala the Hadith hate what do we learn Eman biller consists of three matters. The servant believes that Allah is a creator and Lord, he exists. He is the Holic he is the hub, he is the medic and the owner. Then the servant believes that Allah is the one without any partners. He alone deserves worship. And the servant believes that Allah is characterized with attributes that are unique to him alone. And with this, we conclude the section on belief in Allah soprano.

00:52:40--> 00:52:50

And because this was a very lengthy section, I guess it would be good if we review it. And the only way that we will review it

00:52:51--> 00:52:54

is if we have a test coming up.

00:52:57--> 00:53:33

So because I'd like to make it easier for you. Now inshallah, we're going to begin the second section, which is going to be man in the angels. All right. So and then after that will be the books and the messengers, the day of judgment, the Divine Decree, and that's a completely different topic. This was a lot of new material. For many of you a lot of details, it's good that we solidify this before we continue. All right. So inshallah I will do Shula with your course in charge and hopefully inshallah, soon you will be informed as to when your test will be, but I like it to be soon, inshallah.

00:53:35--> 00:53:41

So panicle that will be sure to let you know, the stuff in order to be like I said, I'm really caught up with the labor
