So from yesterday's class, did you remember anything when you went home? Was there anything that kept coming to your mind again? And again? Are there any questions that you asked yourself as you were worshiping Allah Subhana? Wa, Tada.
I used to think about it or hate what you are teaching us about. So I was trying to recognize what is the last month and and what are we doing? Like where we are praying? But really we do we really recognize, as I was trying to, like, recall with what you're saying, because
what helped me was constantly asking myself, low, fear, hope that whatever I'm doing, am I doing this with love? Do I have fear of a loss?
Do I have hope, in his reward in his mercy? Or is this act devoid of any feeling? Boring? You see, when something is done with feeling? Is it likely? Is it meaningful? Does it make you feel happier and better than before? Does it lift you up spiritually? Yes, but when something is devoid of any emotion, any feeling, then what happens? It is done, and it's over. It doesn't make any difference. It's just done and over with. So asking these three questions, love, fear, hope, do I have that? Do I feel that inshallah This will make a difference? The thing that coming back to my mind was that the point you mentioned that knowing the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the moment I started
learning about teaching, the first thing we are told is, learn the names of your students. Every time you attend a workshop, you get a workshop, you have to know the names of they put labels and stickers, they call you by name, because that brings your relationship to a next level. As a partner, we go for Salah. And we don't know the names of the most accountable, how can that connection, we build these spend time effort ideas to the names of our students, or workshop attendees, even 50. But the names are there. They call them by name. And I was thinking we go to bank, whatever they have your name or the Why do they add their names there? I do. Why do I put my
name because calling someone by name has a different feeling. And we don't deal with
that a personal connection can never be built. Unless and until both people know each other's names, and qualities. So when it's important to know the name of the student, the name of you know a person working at a store, even when you go to the grocery store, right? The Teller, what do they have their name tags, because it's necessary to know the names of the people that you're dealing with? So what about the names and attributes of the one who were worshipping when we claim to love the most whom we claim to fear the most, when we should have the most hope in? Did you think about any connection between love, fear and hope? Why these three pillars? Why all of these three? Why not
just love? Why not just fear? Why not just hope? What's the connection between the three of them? Love? It's a motivator? Right? It produces robba inclination to do what to perform good deeds to worship Allah subhanaw taala more fear. On the other hand, what does that do? It holds us back from disobeying Allah. What does hope do? As human beings? Are we bound to make errors? Are we bound to make errors as human beings? of course do we make mistakes? No matter how much we love a last panel data are there those times when we don't worship Him? The way we should worship Him?
When that element of fear decreases, and as a result, we commit sin does it happen? Of course. So then we need hope of hope that it's okay. Something has been done. Go back to your Lord seek forgiveness mention that at no point in time can the slave feel despair of Allah's mercy? At no point in time can slay feel that the doors are now closed, there is no hope for me except after death. So love fear as well as hope.
So let's begin the book metal and arcade it was clear yesterday Alhamdulillah we went over the mocha demo, and inshallah we will do a quick review right now. But before we begin, just one quick reminder that when I'm reading the Arabic text, make sure that you are writing the skill. And secondly, the translation Also, make sure that you write the translation of any words that you are unfamiliar with because that is what you will be tested on. And if you wish to pass on the information to others, then you have to know the translation. If you don't know it yourself, then you wouldn't be able to pass it on to
Others even at the same time, also make a list for yourself of things to remember things to focus on things to improve. Alright, inshallah. So let's begin. Would anyone like to read them out loud so that everybody can hear
Manny Rahim Dima, two more Alif al hamdu Lillahi lezzy Ensenada Sula, who bill Hooda verdienen Huck Li us Hera who I let Dean equally la Kapha biLlahi shahida brush head to Allah ilaha illa Allah who was the hula Shetty color who it could be he was the he de la she had to earn number hamedan Abdul water Sulu sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam test Lima zita
Alhamdulillah hilarie on Salah rasuna who've been houda What didn't help all praise to Allah, the One who sent His messenger with guidance and the true religion. What does it mean by guidance that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brought which guidance did he bring on summer? And what is that essentially knowledge? So houda over here refers to beneficial knowledge and DNA will help the true religion then remember it is used for action. The word Dean is used for Armand, and it is also used for the reward for an action. Okay, which is why the word been many times in the Quran is used for a bad while Dino was LIBOR. Likewise, Dean is also used for recommends Maliki omit the meaning
Recompense. So over here, Dean and what does it mean?
Meaning what to do? So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he brought what first of all beneficial knowledge for them. And secondly, they also didn't help also as to what is the right way, what is the correct way of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. And this religion, which is composed of both him and Amma Lila Lila who Allah delicately what happened a lot of panels are made a dominant made it prevail over all other religions. waka Fabien Lady shahida and sufficient is Allah as a witness over what over the truth over the prophethood of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well as he is sufficient as a witness over what the truthfulness of this Deen and the fact that the Prophet
sallallahu wasallam conveyed what ash had to Allah either in the la de la sharika and I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship, but Allah What the Who him alone lashley color, no partner, does he have a crush on big water heater? It crop? What does it mean to acknowledge meaning I testify I I bear witness to the oneness of Allah, while fully acknowledging this fact were in my heart. Because it is possible that a person says something and uses big words, but he doesn't really mean it. So it cannot be meaning I testify while fully acknowledging this. What Oh hida meaning I testify and affirm this as absolute though hate what? La ilaha illAllah that there is no god worthy
of worship, but Allah so basically, the reason why the author says what the VEDA at the end is to further emphasize, let ilaha illAllah meaning I testify to this while believing in this as certain absolute, though heed. What I shall do under Mohammed Abu was Sulu, and I also bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a servant and His Messenger. Now if you notice over here, a shadow a shadow Shahada is being mentioned. Do you also testify to these two statements?
What does it mean by Shahada? What is Shahada? Literally, what does it mean, to witness? So Shahada is basically to acknowledge something with the heart and pronounce with the tongue to acknowledge in the heart and also express disclose it how with the tongue. So for example, a person he witnesses a crime taking place. He acknowledges that a crime has taken place. He acknowledges this way in his heart. He knows that this happened. When he will go and testify in the court.
He will disclose that information. That is what Shahada a testimony. So remember that she
There is a two levels one is that belief in the heart. Okay, that realization in the heart, but it's not just kept there. It's also expressed verbally, you understand it's expressed verbally. So for example, when a person becomes a Muslim, he believes in his heart, but he is required to make the declaration of faith also declare it.
So what is it that you can declare? What is it that you can speak about something that you've seen something that you know, now, he's saying, I shadow Allah, Allah in the law, I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship of Allah, that only Allah is deserving of worship? Who has seen Allah?
No, no one right meaning no human being. So what does it mean by this man, I bear witness, I testify. Meaning I believe in this with conviction in my heart, with no doubt. I know this, I understand this, I realized this as a fact. And this is why I declare it with so much confidence. I shadow Allah either in the law y double luxury color, or a shadow Mohammedan I've double what?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. He's described as Abu what, who's up and who's the Rasul? For me, Lopez referring to the meat of how do Who? Allah servant and Allah's Messenger.
So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was a law servant as well as his messenger, as a servant. What kind of a servant was he? As in what kind of an act was he? Okay, obedient. Would you describe him as a good servant? Or excellent service? The best. He was really the best servant. he worshipped Allah soprano Tada.
And he worship Allah the Most amongst all people. Remember, the many times when his feet would swell because of the standing for such a long time in prayer? And when he was asked, aren't your sins forgiven? future and past your sins are all forgiven? Why do you take it so hard on yourself? What was his response
of Allah akuna Ogden shockula because you see in the Quran, no Ali Salam is described as in who can ask them shockula that he was a grateful servant. So it was as though the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was striving to be at that level, a grateful servant, which is why he never get behind when it came to rebel either of us. He was always at the forefront. If you think about it at all of that, at hedge the day of Iraq, when people are standing, they're required to stand there and supplicate made the law. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam How was he making law for so long? With so much concentration with so much humidity, that his shot would drop?
And he would not stop making the entire walk off the entire duration at artifact he was engaged in making law and typically at HUD, what is happening at a lot of people are usually sleeping, or they're eating their biani or they're talking but the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
he attained such a high level of servitude.
So I do what a Zulu and he was also his messenger Salallahu alaihe. Salah Salah. What is this word? Is it a noun? Is it a verb? It's a verb. It's a very similar what kind of fun is it? Of mildly past tense Salah. But remember that past tense very loudly is also used for da okay. It is also used for
you know, making law for someone whether it's a good one or a bad one. So for example, in the Quran,
may be cursed at Lockwood couture literally spastics patera Humala that is also past tense. So likewise sallallahu alayhi wasallam both of these words are bestens rahima Hola, may Allah have mercy on him? So funda What does it mean? Salah is from Salah, but this flat mean, okay to greet. What else does it mean? When you perform the Salat? What does it mean?
you're praying for that means prayer because you are a human being and when you perform a lot that means prayer. Remember that fallout from of loss?
Because we're saying your son in law who may Allah Allah be on
The Prophet salallahu salam, Salam from Allah. It means praise when Allah subhanaw taala praises His servants.
Earlier he said that Allah tala upon the messenger sallallahu wasallam is his praise for him in the most exalted assembly, meeting Allah subhanaw taala, praising his messenger amongst you, amongst his angels,
Allah praising his messenger amongst his angels, this is an act of Allah upon this little muscle.
Now, so they translate for Allah or for that as mercy
but remember that it is not mercy because Mercy is for everybody.
Okay, mercy is for everybody you can say about anyone, may Allah have mercy upon them,
but you cannot say about everyone Salallahu alaihe can you know about any scholar any righteous person you can fit by him or hula, but you cannot say for the love of God, why because Salat is something special, that is only for those who are special. And what is that Allah praise? for? For example, His Messenger were in the company of the angels and in the Quran, Allah to Allah subhanaw taala says that he guylaine him salotto middle of being
Salawat and Rama mentioned separately,
okay. So that means fallout from a lie is different from different from Rama, it is different from mercy.
And remember that in the general sense,
Fallout gives the meaning of various, you know, good things. So, this is why it's also translated as blessings.
Many good favorites, various good favorites of Allah, may they be upon Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and amongst the best of those is Allah praising him amongst the angels
sallallahu alayhi wa ala Ernest early and also made a solid be upon led his URL whose URL the URL of Mohammed Coronavirus What does it mean by an
okay family any other meaning of followers okay. So, why is it that sometimes L is understood as families sometimes as followers? Does it mean both does it mean one? How do we understand this? Remember that when the word L
is mentioned along with, for example, at the bar at bar our followers, when it's mentioned along with a bar, so, what at bar then l refers to family alone?
It refers to the family alone, but when al is mentioned by itself,
okay, when Allah is mentioned by itself, then it includes the followers.
All right. So for example, in the Quran, we learn about their own
of their own. What does that include his family,
his followers, why because their own did not have children. Right. And this is why when they found most artists when I was a baby, the wife of Iran insisted that they keep him because their own himself did not have any children. Okay, so who was the Al have their own?
It was his followers, it was his armies
of loot on his channel, what does that refer to his followers also, alright. So, after leaving early May, the finance of Allah be upon the followers of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam also who are his followers,
those who believe in him and those who truly follow Him,
who truly follow him. So imagine if a person follows the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then is he receiving any drugs?
Who is the
who's the law?
Anybody who sends a lot on the Prophet sallallahu Sallam?
Because every time someone says Allahumma salli, ala Muhammad, wa ala, Muhammad, Arizona. So imagine when a person increases in his devour of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, how much why is he receiving from so many people?
Hmm. And what kind of draw is that? That may Allah praise the followers of the prophets Allah. May Allah bless them, may Allah show them various favors, may Allah bless them with many blessings. Then whose praise do we need?
And whose acknowledgment do we need? Why should we be seeking the acknowledgement of people will be his companions, meaning the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meaning those people who met him while believing in Him, and also died upon that way, was selama. Again, Selena, it's a verb of fast tense, but remember this is for the purpose of Torah, that may there be Salam of Allah upon who? Or how much Salim and his followers? What does it mean by Selma? asleep? Right, Salama, to be free from harm and danger, to be free from harm and danger, meaning May the peace of Allah be upon him and his followers. Now on the one hand is solid and on the other hand is set up.
Solid and solid follow is the attainment of various kinds of good
and ceram is basically to be free from harm and danger. So when we're asking for Sadat and Salah, what are we asking for that maybe shower, his blessings on his messenger and his followers, and maybe also keep them safe?
from any harm and danger
from any harm and danger? May he ward off any kind of evil from his messenger and the followers of his messenger? That's the one piece that is mazinga additional moseyed.
What does moseyed mean, it is from the other eye that which is added that which is extra additional meaning more tasleem added to the Salah. Even more peace may be ever increasing may never end. May it never cease? May it always be you know, for example, you make law for someone you wish them well. And you write words such as always.
So why because you want that they should forever be blessed. That's Lima z that even more peace may be ever increasing. And the way that that insulin has been mentioned at the end of this clip bahagia What does it show the love and respect that Jefferson had for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had immense love for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam immense respect for him. And that is obvious in the way that he is sending salatu salam on his
next page. I'm about to do
an AMA as for Barden after.
So first I will read the text you can add any question and then inshallah we will translate and then we will look at the meaning
I'm about to do for her to father Philpott in Nigeria till maturity in RPM SRT. And assume Nettie well, Gemma, it was a man who been there he woman as you can see, he will be he will soon he will birth the bargain Moti when he man will be 35 he was surely he amobarbital As for what follows

So in HIPAA for example.
Why because at the beginning of any photograph, what is necessary that Allah soprano tada His name is mentioned. He is glorified. He is praised, and then Peace and blessings are sent upon the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also,
this was the way of the Prophet Solomon
Awkward Salam whenever he would give any address he would first and foremost glorify and praise Allah soprano.
And that has been the way are those who follow the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that whenever anything important is to be mentioned, whether in a written form or in an oral form, what is the proper etiquette that a lot should be glorified first, peace and blessings be sent on the messenger sallallahu Sallam and then a person should say what he has to and this is exactly what she could have found even Tamia has done first the hookah which is known as hot button Hydra, Hydra meaning essential is needed. And then his own speech, so I'm about to ask for what follows
for her to do for her. So, this is
this is the creed, this is the Akita thought from arcada and Akita from is to bind to tie to make a knot, right? And where is it that we tie this knot? Where is it that we make this firm knot? Where in the heart
that when a person becomes firm about something deep in his heart, that he believes in it with firmness, with conviction? All right. Okay, that literally means hook with dignity Jasmine, it's basically a determined judgment of the mind meaning such a thing which the mind is firm upon the heart is firmly resolved upon. So what a person has determined in his heart
so what is the Akita? checklist lanterns for heaven? So this is the creed of Alfredo potty and Nigeria, masala tea.
This is the aqeedah of alfalfa. What is filco group? Okay, group
and Nadia, Nadia is from the letters non GMO, Niger and what does it mean?
to be saved?
So a Nigeria meaning that group which is saved, saved from what? From deviation
saved from innovation
from leaving the Quran and Sunnah. No, they're saved from this error.
And such group obviously will also be Nigeria in the afternoon
saved from the Hellfire India,
meaning that group which will attain salvation, why because it is abundant? How?
So, you understand? How is it Nigeria How is it saved from error
from innovation from deviation and as a result, such people will also be saved from the Hellfire later. So a Nigeria where Indonesia?
is there any evidence for this?
Yes, there's a hadith which is graded as hesson
that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, this image shall be divided into 73 sects, all of them shall enter the fire except one. So the Sahaba asked which one is it a messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam and he replied it is that which is a bundle of what I and my companions are on. Meaning that group which will be on the same thing which I and my companions are upon, meaning the Quran and the Sunnah. So a Nadia almanzora montura from nosler help someone surah meaning that which will be given help that which will be aided and help meaning the group which will always receive a lot of help, always it will receive a lot of help until when either pm
until the hour is established meaning until the day of judgment, but there is a question don't we learn from Hades that our will come when the worst people are living on the earth? So what does it mean by this that which one is the saved group?
So one interpretation is that it actually MSR is on the individual meeting when the individuals PSA will establish meaning until the time of their death. Okay. Another interpretation is that obviously the beginning of the hour before that will be certain signs. Okay, so until that time, it will be Masuda
Who is this alpha out in Nigeria can Matsuura in a piano sir, who are they at listen nothing. Well Gemma before we
Continue, when you read this description, the group which will be saved in the near end, always helped by a loss upon time until their death or until the establishment of the hour.
Does that make you want something?
To be part of the group? That what is that key because of which a person will be saved in Louisiana for what is that belief? If a person holds, he will be saved in the DNR for
Who are they and assume that he will Gemma, have you heard of this term?
Okay. Listen, what does it mean? It means people, right? So, listen, people are the sinner, meaning those people which are upon the Sunnah, which are the followers of the sinner, those who are agreed upon the sun now, and they are the people of Jamaica, what does Juma army congregation when people are assembled together, they are together, they're not divided. Right? It's the opposite of division.
So, in other words, those who are above the center, and they are together upon the summit, agreed upon the summit, and they do not have any division. They are together, United upon the center, they're not divided up, they do not separate themselves from mainstream
you understand those who do not separate themselves from mainstream
they differ over matters of course, the Sahaba also had differences.
But those differences are not considered fundamental right? They are differences for example, in fact, but not enough either, okay. And even if there may be slight differences in certain Akita issues, still they do not accuse one another of having gone astray.
Like some other people did,
who did not adhere to the jamara. Remember, the demand does not mean majority, okay. jamara means what they are together, those were united upon the summer. So this means that there have been people who did not remain upon the sun, who left the sydnor who abandoned the sun, who deviated from the sun. And when they deviated from the Sunnah, what happened? They also
separated from mainstream, they did not remain part of jamara.
You understand, then division happened?
Clear. So who are at the cinema, that no matter what happens, they remain firm on the center, and they do not leave the congregation. They are together. So there's two things that are important to understand the importance of Center and the importance of Gemma.
When it comes to the importance of center, what does it mean that the person that they take the summer as their source of theology?
What is the source of Akita for us? The sadhana meaning what the prophets are a lot of them right? Whether it is in the form of Quranic verses, or it is in the form of prophetic traditions, whatever it may be, that is the source. Is it reason? Is it intellect, logic? Do we use logic as a source of happiness?
Can we use scientific evidence as a source of data? Can we use philosophy as a source of Akita? No, no, sir, nothing, no matter what is new, and, you know, being promoted by people. Regardless, for us, our source of theology will always be sooner. All right, because when people use other sources, then what will happen they will separate from the mainstream.
You see a police he was amongst the angels was a part of jamara. Initially, he was he was given a command, and what was that frustrate to Adam?
What did it leads to? He didn't do such right. He didn't take a last comment as an evidence rather, what did he do use his reason? He said, identify your own men who are locked in even now.
Allah He has your command is there however, I disagree with that, because I am better than Adam. You created me from fire and you created him from clay. So the
the hook was there, the command was there, but if least preferred reason, logic over the command of Allah, what happened?
What happened? Did he remain with the damar? No, what was he told
He was expelled.
So you understand what the importance of the summit is.
And no matter how intelligent a person may be, or no matter how convincing an argument may seem, remember that we can never prefer logic reason over.
We can ever do that. Why? Because as human beings, we must realize this fact that our, our, our intellect, our reason, it is limited. It is small.
After all, it's only within the skull. I mean, look at the size of the brain. It's quite small.
Then how is it that this brain can fathom and understand the reality of everything?
alone by itself independently? It's not possible. If you think about it, the heart the brain, it has windows, right, the eyes and the ears, right? Which means that our uncle needs an external source of knowledge, doesn't it? It cannot be independent. Correct. So likewise, when it comes to understanding the matters of our religion, especially the names and attributes of our last panel data, can we use reason as a source of theology? No. What is our source of theology? The Quran and Sunnah? Because if we will not adhere to it, then what will happen? division will happen and deviation will happen. Let me give you an example. Have you heard of Hawaii beach?
Have you heard of Martha's Isla?
Okay, have you heard of aloe qalam? You may have heard of these terms.
Hawaii flat edge what's the root courage to go out? So provided were basically those who left? Okay, those who rebelled against arguably long run and left mainstream Muslims. Why? Because I needed to learn who he appointed as an archery Okay, as a ruler and the slight edge all of a sudden they said how can you appoint a human being as a judge? And they said woman let me come be manzanilla Larry Cahoon capital
said you have committed control by appointing a human being as a judge. So early, they said you are a Catholic now, and they said that the Sahaba have committed COVID and 4000 some 6000 of you know people basically, they rebelled in this way. And even our boss, although he went after them. And he explained to them that look, the logic that you're using does not make sense. It is incorrect. And so many of them they listen to even our basketball, but some of them they left all right. They were known as college. And they basically believe that if a person commits a major sin, He does not remain Muslim anymore. His Eman is canceled.
Now think about it. Is this something that is true?
Was this the way of the prophets or the line ism, that if a person committed a sin, the profit sort of management declared confer on him? Was that the way? Is this from the center? Not at all? Don't we learn about the law? Don't we learn about the produce the punishments? Why are they given as part of Toba? Right? That no matter what crime has been committed, there's always a way back. It doesn't mean that a person has left the fold of Islam. So when people deviate from the Sunnah, what happens? division happens.
Then we also learned that, for example, the whole adage the women of the holidays, they would praise Allah, even during menstruation, why out of this fear, that if one Salah is missed in confusion over the beginning and ending of the period, then if we leave that out, we will commit?
You understand? So this was an extreme, you know, deviation. And based on this episode of the Hawaii, they considered the blood of the Muslims to be permissible. So they would say it's permissible to wage war against the Muslims to kill the Sahaba they waged, they actually fought many Muslims and they attacked many and they said that the property of the Muslims is permissible for us to take and even the women can be taken as war captains and so on and so forth. So, you see how this deviation began, how how this division began, moving away from the center and using pure logic, just logic What if you are committing a major sin? Then you know, you have decreased in your Eman so much
so that you have left Islam? Your Eman is not valid anymore. Let me give you another example. Have you heard of the term worth
at the time of hustle bustle,
hustle bustle, he was a Tabby, right?
The average were a major factor because these people this group it came about at the time of the companions, right? So a man he asked in the gathering of hustle and bustle, that who is a sinner, but if a person commits a sin, then has the left of all of Islam is no longer a Muslim. It is a man canceled. For celibacy, he was about to give the answer when this man we stood up, and he was from the students of personal mercy. And his name was Wesley been a thought, who has been a thought he stood up and he said, I will present a solution. And that solution is that such a person who commits a sin, He is neither a Muslim, nor is he a Catholic. Rather, he isn't a station between the two. He
is in a Mandela bhaineann Mandela time, he is in a position between the two positions. But first of all, this response, it was extremely rude, because there's a teacher present. And the teacher has a right to speak, and you stand up without any permission, and you give the answer like that. And secondly, what is the evidence of this? Does the Quran prove that if a person commits a sin that he no longer remains a Muslim?
Does the Quran say anything to that effect? No, there is nothing like that. So what's the evidence now this man again, we spoke without the legal personnel, but he explained what was argued, and he refused. And he said, I will teach myself, meaning I don't need you anymore. I will teach myself I will use my own reason. I don't care about what you've learned from the companions, and what they learned from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, I will teach myself I will use my reason and he went away and has an abortion. He said at that time, that waffling he says Allah,
he has separated himself from us, you understand we have separated himself from us, meaning he is no longer part of the gym. So the sooner they adhere to the sun, and they adhere to the assembly, the congregation of the Muslims, they do not think like the deviator think, preferring logic or reason over the sinner, nor do they behave in this manner. What manner that over a difference, you know, declare Cofer on the Muslims and divide meaning separate from them. So the notion well, Gemma, what do they believe in? And the sooner well, tomorrow, what is their God? shuffle Islam says What will a man who been there
and it is to believe in Allah,
woman equity and his angels, what could be he and his books were also D and this messages will Bharati about the remote and resurrection after that meaning the afterlife option. One Emanuel bill Qadri Heidi Pasha and also they believe in Divine Decree. This is the belief of who
Lucinda was nojima and if you think about it, the one who believes in all of this
then yes, it is such belief that is founded upon the Quran and Sunnah. And if a person rejects even one aspect of this belief, then will that be called amen? So for example, if a person does not believe in the last day, will that be called amen? If a person does not believe in the angels, because he says, Oh, I cannot see the angels, and if I cannot see them, I cannot believe in their existence. What will that be called? Amen.
So, when a man will not be like how it is described over here, then would a person belong to the group and feel caught in Nigeria?
Would he be after? No. So if we want to be of the group, which is Nigeria, that will be saved in Kenya and Africa, that will be Mansehra assisted and helped by Allah subhanaw taala then what is necessary that we adhere to this belief?
Now, what are the details of this man, inshallah we will look into that as we study the book, but just one more thing, one more clarification before we carry on that Mansehra, this arcada, the holders of this Ark leader the people who hold this belief, they shall be helped.
They shall be assisted until the hour or until the time of their death. What does it mean that this arcada will survive?
Until the hour, no matter how many deviations happen, this pure faith this pure creed shall remain, it will remain, why because it is montura it is assisted, assisted with what proofs and evidences the basis the foundation of this Akita is what the sooner the Quran and Allah subhanaw taala instead of a local and international executive declared, we're in Allahu Allah. Allah will preserve the Quran. So when Allah will preserve the Quran, then those who will take their Akita from the Quran will their Akita last and survive and prevail. Yes.
And if you think about it, over the ages, there have been so many trials and tribulations so many fitness.
We think that these days, there is such a big fix. Now, you atheism for example, that just because, you know, for example, evolution is studied as a fact. And it's scientifically proven. What's going to happen to our Eman And what's going to happen to the amount of our children but greater fitness have been there in the past, greater fitness and remember those who hold on to the Quran and Sunnah. Allah who preserved their faith,
Allah will give them firmness and stability. You said bit of LaHood Medina Amma No, Bill Cohen of Sabbath Allah will give them firmness and stability. How with what Bill cola fabric will hire to do near what will fly in this life and also in the hereafter the truth shall remain, no matter how much people try to finish it, to eliminate it, to distort it, but the truth shall prevail. And let me give you an example. And I'm not even humbled during his time, the Morteza which began when when Russell had been applied, he began using his logic and reasoning, and basically that group evolved over time. And the proponents of those beliefs they would even say that Allah subhanaw taala. Now he
speaks but he does not speak meaning in the Quran. If Allah said that galana it doesn't actually mean Kalam.
Okay, so they deny the attributes of Allah. If Allah has said that he sees, it doesn't actually mean that he sees. So they use different ways to distort the meaning they rejected the meaning they distorted the meaning they altered it, they changed it. So they also said in denial of a loss of fat that Allah does not speak. But then people said, well, the Quran is the speech of Allah, the Quran is that speech of the life, the creation of Allah, and this, you know, new belief, you know, it became so widespread that even the halifa of the time, he was very much influenced by it, so much so that he wanted to make sure that all of the scholars agreed with this belief, and they also promoted
Even even humble, he said, no call on his column, it is not Muslim. Because Allah speaks, we do not deny the attribute of Allah of color. If Allah has said that he speaks, we believe that he speaks. If the Quran is column, it's called column in the Quran, we will call it color, we cannot call it Muslim.
So, I had been humbled. Was he given help? By Allah subhanaw taala? Yes, how? But Allah made him so firm, he was given so much firmness that I might even humble he was called to boast that he was made to debate with the destiny scholars, he refuted them, you give them proof after proof when they were left speechless. They tortured him, they imprisoned him, they beat him, but he did not give up. He did not give up. And scholars today say that we're not for the blessing of Allah through
the masses would be more dazzling today.
The masses would be more desolate today meaning today, one of the common beliefs that people would have about the Koran would be honest, created. Allah doesn't speak. Yeah, he's God. He doesn't really have any attributes. He doesn't really see he doesn't really hear he doesn't really have any such traits. This would be common today, if he had not been firm at that time. Someone Sora
even taymiyah was in prison. Yes, multiple times. But not sure. He was helped in the sense that he did not give up a lot of panel data gave him such understanding of the texts that no matter what was said he was firm on his belief because he took it from where the Quran and the Sunnah. So remember that the fifth love every era is different, and the evolution that remain firm on the house.
How? Because they remain firm on the Quran and Sunnah show, no matter what wave of fitna comes, it doesn't deviate them. Nigeria they survive masura they're helped Illa piano sir. So what is the email? Well email rubella. And it is to believe in Allah and His angels, his books, his messengers and the handler we went over this the details we will look at later.
woman and a man even lady,
and from the belief in Allah
is a man who believe Bhima in all that which was Safa, he has described bV with it nafsa who, himself who has described himself, Allah Subhana
Where has he described himself? fie kitabi in his book, which book, The Quran
so of the belief in Allah is to believe in all that Allah has described himself with meaning every description that Allah has given himself, were in his book,
what a man and in that which was who he has described him, the he with it, meaning with that description, who has described him rasuluh His Messenger whose messenger, Allah, His Messenger, meaning to believe in that which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has described Allah subhanaw taala. So part of Eman in Allah is to believe in the sleep out of the descriptions of Allah. And where do we find those descriptions from First of all, from the Quran? And secondly, from the Sunnah.
And when we believe in these descriptions in the sleep app, we believe in them min lady without the refund any
wallet are clean nor any dirty woman lady turkeys and without any turkey what I can feel nor any sense the meaning we avoid these formatters when we believe in the descriptions of Allah we keep away from these four things, these 14 Okay, the brief there are clean the cave and 10 feet.
Now what are these terms inshallah we will look at them.
First of all, one minute, ability to believe in Allah, part of belief in Allah,
believing in Allah, what does it mean believing in
formatters First of all, his existence, the fact that He exists. Secondly, I mentioned to you yesterday is rubia the fact that He is the Creator the Lord, thirdly in his Gulu here, that he is deserving of worship And fourthly his a smirk was said that his names and his attributes so belief in Allah comprises of all these four matters belief in his existence. Boo boo boo, boo here and a smile.
Over here, we see that how is it that we come to know about Allah soprano time? What is it that we believe about Allah in the descriptions
that we learn about from the Quran and from the Sunnah. And this belief should be free from these formatters. So in other words, if these four matters are done, then that belief would be impure, it would be incorrect. And if these four matters are abstained from then that belief in Allah subhanaw taala would be pure, it would be correct. Okay. Let's look at the term Bhima wasaga to believe in that which Allah has described himself with and in that which the messengers that a lot of Southern has described a last panel title with now, when Allah subhanaw taala describes himself. I mentioned to you earlier the two kinds of descriptions, which ones are they that the end fairly Yeah. Okay. So
in local on, do we learn about those effects which are the idea so that includes which record?
Marana we have a de Marana we have such as attributes such as life. Okay, so does Allah subhanaw taala describe himself with life with the suffer of life? Where
Allahu La Ilaha Illa hua hai ulukaya Okay, so
Allah subhanaw taala has described himself with the sefa Piatt. Can we deny that in any way?
In any way? No, we cannot. So is there a problem with this belief at all then what Sam has mentioned over here, and he may be members of the BNF Sophie kitabi It doesn't make sense, this belief, okay. The second type of sifat are aftermarket hub area. So for example, he had his that mentioned in the Quran does Allah subhanaw taala describe himself with yet? For example, ballia who, my boo pata Okay, also in Hades, we don't utilize the vocal Gemma okay. After that is slip out which are fairly his actions. Are they mentioned in the Quran? Okay, they're mentioned in the Quran. So it's clear. We may also have a big enough Sophie kitabi. Where in the verses of the Quran, okay.
Secondly, those descriptions that we learned from were from the sun Nebula was of obihiro Zulu, the descriptions that the prophets Allah,
the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he did give us many descriptions of Allah subhanaw taala. And in three ways, first of all, through code through words, meaning we verbally describe the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala.
Can you think of an attribute of Allah that you learn about from the Sunnah?
Okay, so for example, in Hades we learn that Allah subhanaw taala left.
So that the words of the prophets that allowed him to tell us about a cipher of Allah, Allahu mamuka, liban kulu Sabbath can be an idyllic Macaulay Welcome, kulu Turner of the hearts. That is a sofa that we learned from the words of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
At the time of pregabalin, a person wakes up in the wake of their spouse or las panatela smiles at them. So these are words of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam from which we learn about the subject of Allah and there are many differences.
Secondly, he also taught us a lot through history, through his actions, how that for example,
when at the time of had different weather, he pointed his finger up in the sky and he said, mama said,
Oh Allah, you bear witness.
Likewise, other naraka con Luba Chica, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would look up to the sky waiting for ya.
Like Wasn't he would make the raw hands are
raised. So what does that mean that something has to come from above. So all of these actions, what do they show that the prophets of Allah Islam demonstrated that Allah subhanaw taala has Ulu he is above us clear. That is an attribute of Allah Renu that he is high above, in a hadith which is in a Buddha nature Sahih Hadith we learned that the prophets of Allah femicide in Isaiah, and at the end of the
alleged names and attributes were mentioned Sameer versus Allah. Here is an UCs and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam put his thumb on his ear, and finger on his eye. Meaning he pointed just don't think it's metaphorical. It's not literal. No, it's a fact. Allah sees Allah hears. Now this doesn't mean that we go on describing that okay with an ear, okay, within I know we stop right there. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam with his action he proved, he showed he emphasized that this was a fact Allah hears and he says, I have no doubt about this.
Don't go on describing it. But just realize that Allah hears and he sees, okay, this is what's been fair.
And the third way through which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us about the attributes of Allah was do his approvals.
So for example, once girl was brought in, she was not able to speak, and she was supposed to be set free, but it was supposed to be a Muslim that was supposed to be set free. So the prophets are a lot of them as an Allah Anan law and she pointed with her finger up to the sky, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, release her for she is a believer, she is a believer. So he approved of this that yes, Allah is
other you understand. So there are many descriptions that we learn of Allah subhanaw taala, from where from the Sunnah, in the words of the prophets of Allah and then also through the actions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and also this approval and I remember that it was attributes are part of our belief in LA and La was something that we cannot describe, because we have not seen it. So we have to
we restrict ourselves to the descriptions that we learn from the Quran and Sunnah. We just stop there. We don't go beyond those descriptions. I'm not even humbled. He said that Allah should not be described except in the way that he has described himself or as His Messenger has described in the Quran and Hades should not be exceeded. You understand? The Quran and Hadith should not be exceeded? Because you see what is mentioned over here will be my wife Sophia, who below Sulu. So, these descriptions where do we take them from the Quran and the Sunnah? Which means that we cannot use our own imagination to
all right, this is something that we are not allowed to do. And remember that we have to take the worst as it has been described. Take it as is.
Don't distort it, don't change it don't further describe it. No, take it as it is.
Okay? Men lay the head even when after a pleasing woman laid the teeth and voila, them field formatters have to be avoided.
What are the first of all,
say the word, the hurry? Have you heard of this term before?
What does that leave mean? to alter to change? You have the phone and kalama and Manuel there he did when he saw him they used to change the words of the Torah from their proper places. Right. And this habit of theirs is something that has been heavily criticized on over and over again, not just once but several times that leaf sometimes it's called the hate sometimes yell wound elsina Tomita, right.
So, the leaf means to alter to change to change something in such a way so that it does not remain the same,
it does not remain the same.
And sometimes it could be a very small change, a very small change that is made to something and it does not remain the same.
For example, you are preparing some food, and the instructions they call for certain ingredients. So you say you know what? I don't have this much baking soda, let's put yeast that small change, what will it produce? something different, completely different. So do we agree with this? That a change whether it is big or small, is a change?
So the brief with regard to Allah subhanaw taala His names and attributes? What does it mean? Changing the names of Allah, the attributes of Allah, whether it is done by changing those words, or changing their meanings or changing their implication?
we have no right to change our last names. We don't have any right to do that. Think about it. How would you like it? If somebody changed your name? They say from today? I'm not going to call you. I shall gonna call you a shoe.
Would you like that?
No. Don't change my name. My mother did not name me a shoe. She named me Our Isha. So call me Arusha. Don't change it.
It's extremely disrespectful. If somebody changes your name, some people get so offended just if their Spelling's are changed. Hmm, even if the spellings of the name are changed, it's not a matter that's taken lightly.
So how is it that the names of a lot can be changed and altered? We don't have any right to do that. Remember that the study was done in two ways. First of all, in love and secondly in minor
love, the word is changed,
the word is changed and when the word will be changed, obviously, it will be something completely different.
So, for example, the first person to ever question the names and attributes of Allah was a man by the name of Jared been
okay? He would go to this teacher, even when a bit would have even been a big was the student of a Buddha below. Okay, so he will go up to him and he would ask questions like, what does it mean by the law?
That means Alaska yet?
What does it mean by cunnamulla? Allah spoke, Allah speaks. So he has a mouth and so on and so forth. Like he went on asking such questions what even will not be? He will answer his questions. And he would say to you abstained from asking about these matters for I think that you will be amongst those who are destroyed.
meaning you're entering a very big danger zone. So stop asking these questions. Don't think about these matters. But God continued, and he began teaching others and for the first time ever, Islamic theology was being taught that was completely different from mainstream. And he began saying things such as Allah does not speak. Allah design
Love, he does not see he does not hate he does not have any of these attributes and in order to prove that what would he do the honey, the honey for what? The words in the Quran. So for example, he said Allah does not speak and he said the idea that people could kill them Allah Musetta cleaner. It's not actually columella who he said it's kalama la hermosa cleaner. He changed the Allahu into Allah hat. Now, it means a big change. How can lemon law Who?
Allah who midfoot which means that it's fine, so qlm Allahu Allah is doing calam Allah spoke to Moosa, he said, No, it is kalama la her
Moosa that Moshe kalama to Allah, so Allah, her mushroom object. So Moosa spoke to Allah, Allah spoke to Musa but if you think about it, what's the big deal in that? I mean, everybody speaks to a modern we speak Yama. We don't we make them when we preach Allah Who are we speaking to?
Allah subhanaw taala right.
So he did the brief of this area he changed the word Kalam Allahu into kalama Maha. You understand? So this definitely is something that I keep away from Tell me something. Is it a decent practice? Changing the words, changing the words of someone else? Can this be done by someone who you know, has some dignity and have some responsibility? And this ever be expected of a serious person? No.
But then he was refuted with the idea. Well imagine a Mussolini party patina waka lemma boo boo, how can you change this? Meaning this ayah you cannot play with the Hallo cat and you can't change it so how will you deny the column over there? So once it is true love the reverse through Marina Marina meaning to change the meaning. So for example in the Quran, there are many sifat of Allah that are mentioned whether they are poverty or fairly Martin we're so for example yet
so they said no, no, Allah does not have a yet hand what yet means his blessing.
What Yad means is blessing it means only power. Now Okay, hand does symbolize power, okay strength, but when Allah subhanaw taala mentions is yet we cannot say it does not mean yet it means power only. No, that is not the correct way.
This is the heat of the moment. What's the evidence? Likewise, is Stella anilao sister Ella rose over the tone is still of course it's not it means to rise. They said no, it's not a stoic is Ola. Meaning he sees he conquered the change the meaning, likewise, job or a book, your Lord will come? They said no, Allah subhanaw taala will not come because they said he does not have the cipher of coming, he cannot do this action of coming.
They said it means his command will come. But to what length will the person deny? If you say that his command will come that means that he issues commands? Will you deny that now? You understand? So we have to keep away from the
second thing, mean right and even whether they're appealing. Their appeal is invalidation there, it literally means to abandon to neglect to desert to forsake in the Quran, you may remember the more
be more okpala Well, that is rapala. Abandoned deserted.
So therapy is to remove an attribute from a name or to basically say that Allah does not possess this attribute to abandon the meaning. So for example, saying that Yes, okay. Allah is a Samir, but without summer.
He is assumere. But he doesn't possess the quality of summer. He is besieged, but he doesn't possess the quality of buffer. These are just words. They don't really mean much.
So what is being abandoned over here?
The meaning it's being abandoned.
You understand? So think about it. If someone believes in a god like this, that okay, he is a smear, but he doesn't listen, he obviously but he doesn't see. He is alarmed, but he doesn't know. It doesn't make sense.
Does it make sense? Which is why you're wondering what am I even saying? So and remember that in order to do this
In order to do the appeal, we need to abandon the meaning that the names and attributes of Allah give the detective. So, for example, a lot of them speak what about the IOA cunnamulla? Who said that they did have that they say, Allah does not perform any actions he does not rise. So they change estafa to is stola
is Stoller to the point that some people they went to such a great length or they wanted to erase ad from the Quran,
like completely eradicate them to show that oh, this doesn't exist in mammals have. So it's not part of the Quran. So terraclean is something that has to be done or avoided. avoided.
Okay. Thirdly woman later Keefe, that leaf is from cave cave for her look. What does it mean by kafer? How?
So the key is to explain the how. So for example, you told me so and so came, I asked, How did they come? And you tell me they came? Walking?
So walking, is that the key?
Okay, explaining how they came.
Another example could be that I asked you What's the color of that object, you say white. So White is the key. It's the description, you can see, it's to explain how something is that it has a color, it has this color. So the listener don't delve into this. When they talk about a lot of names and attributes. When they believe in a lot of names and attributes, they keep away from the key they keep away from explaining how Allah rose above the Throne, or how Allah descends to the lowest heaven every night, or how Allah subhanaw taala speaks, or how he sees or how he hears, these are matters that we have not been informed about. So we're not going to delve into that. Because
speaking about something without knowledge, what is that?
A big mistake. It's something that is forbidden, especially when a person speaks about the last panel guy without knowledge. So we believe that Allah is the law or then,
but then we don't go on to describing how he is how he rolls over the phone. Okay? Likewise, we don't describe how he is on the throne, whether he's sitting or he's standing on the outs, no, we don't give such descriptions, okay, because this is something that we have not been told about. There was a group there known as he shamika. And they said that when they described a loss of power that they said, his length is equal to his width, or his length is equivalent to seven times the span of himself. Now, this is describing the wholeness. How did you know? How did you know? What proof do you have? We don't have any proof. And, you know, just hearing these things, makes you
shudder and shiver, and makes you think, how dumb could the person be that how could they even think about such matters? How could they come up with such a fabrication?
The fourth thing that has to be avoided is done theme and some features from method example.
Remember that method, it means example, but it also means equivalent,
meaning one who is similar to the other. So what is meant by from Thiele is that we don't strike equivalent in the sense that when it comes to the attributes of Allah Subhana, WA Tada. So for example, Allah has a hand. Your doula, okay, my follow up to be a bulyanhulu pattern. All right, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that both his hands are right. Now, what does it mean by that? You don't go on striking examples. And similar to that, for a human being, you can say, her hand is exactly like mine.
Her nose is exactly like her mother's. Can you say these things about human beings, about human beings? Yeah, she's just like her father,
too. People say that all the time. We're doing something all the time.
If someone asks you about a particular relative, whom they haven't met, you can say he or she looks a lot like me.
You're doing some fields so that they can understand because they haven't seen your relative but by seeing you, they can understand about your relative.
But when it comes to Allah subhanaw taala. Lisa committed cliche, there is nothing like him. So can Dunfield be done? Can a person say Allah His hand is like this and this, no, or that Allah has nor is like this, and this
Can we do that? No. What's the difference between the key Phantom fee
The key is to explain the how the nature
and completeness to strike resemblances.
Okay strike resemblance is to give examples isn't to say that this reefer is like such and such.
So Jefferson says we have to keep away from that but you mean owner be an Allah subhanahu ballare rather you know that they believe the anila soprano who that Allah, the Exalted is He lay secondary cliche, what was sent here.
There is none who is like him, and he is a semi robustly. He is hearing and he's seen, which means that he hears he sees he possesses those attributes, but they're unique to him. So the way he hears, no one hears like that, the way he sees, no one sees like that.
Because you see, some people did it. Or they did.
Why? Because they said, If you say that Allah speaks, then you will likening him to his creation. Because we speak human beings speaks, if you say that Allah speaks and you're saying that he is like human beings, whereas later can be cliche. So we have to be absolutely on the safe side. And so we say, Allah, He is a Sameer but he doesn't have someone he is oversea, but he doesn't have Bhushan but that is also contradicting the Quran, that is also contradicting the similar, right? So what is the safest side? What is the best way? The Quran and Sunnah affirm what has been mentioned?
And only that, don't go beyond that. Don't keep away from that. Okay, because there are two extremes. The another extreme stuff we that we will fall will to embrace a lot. What does it mean to leave the matter to Allah? So a person says, you know, what we don't know. So we're not going to say anything Allah knows best whether he hears or not, whether he sees or not, is this statement correct? This is not correct, either. Because if Allah has said that he hears and he sees that we cannot reject it, we cannot have any doubt about it, we have to believe in that with conviction with certainty. Right? And this is, this is a man that you accept you believe in Allah as he is. So we
are not going to add to any description of Allah subhanaw taala we're not going to decrease it, we're not going to reject it, we're not going to liken it to any thing else. And this is how that Oh Allah I believe in you as you are, as you have informed us about yourself through your book or through your messenger and this belief, it is based on what
how Quran and Sunnah
is based on belief. Yes, and if a person says anything contrary, such as he goes on describing or he goes on rejecting, or he goes on striking similarities, then that would be without any delay. And this is something that we have been forbidden. Okay, so there's two minutes left. Who would like to read the first paragraph? I'm about to
hear it Nadia t pellman. Surah. T. Isla piensa. It Alison Nettie. Well, Gemma it will in no biLlahi woman at wakatobi He will surely while back Louden Modi will email bill Audrey Heidi. He will share TV wamena Imani biLlahi Emmanuel Bhima Wasabi
