luminosa Leonardo's hooligan Kareem Abarth fairuza Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Rubbish Hartley's solidity were Sidley Emily Wilander appdata melissani of Kabul, Kohli. probenecid.

00:00:17--> 00:01:12

inshallah we'll begin from page number four. We were studying about the belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because in our data, what is the first and foremost thing, the most important part of faith? belief in Allah has the origin. So when it comes to believing in Allah subhanaw taala what kind of belief do the lucerna have? Everybody read together? wamena Imani biLlahi and a man who be man was Safa v nappsa who phe kita v Wahby mal was Safa who be here rasuluh mingulay Rita Raven leaving well after cleaning woman lady tuck even while atom Thielen so we believe in Allah subhanaw taala everything that Allah has described himself with, or the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has

00:01:12--> 00:01:45

described Allah subhanho wa Taala with so any belief that we have about Allah, where does it come from? Where is it based in the Quran? And the Sunnah. Okay. And whatever belief we have about Allah subhana wa Tada, there are some things that we avoid concerning and what are those four things, the 14th? The brief, directly the key and terms the what is the what if to distort, to alter it to change it?

00:01:47--> 00:01:48

Secondly,

00:01:49--> 00:02:39

what is the likely to abandon the meaning of it? I asked you to look at the meaning of the word appeal. So what does that really mean? Yes, so inactivity, suspension, temporary relief, okay. So to suspend the meaning, to abandon the meaning, to say that they're inactive. So to say things like, Allah is severe, meaning he has the name severe because he says, well, who was severe, but that doesn't mean that he hears you're abandoning the meaning what kind of a name is that? You understand? So this is strictly we abstain from it. Thirdly, we keep away from the cave and what is the cave it's from cave, to explain the cave fee to explain how it is. So for instance, Allah

00:02:39--> 00:02:58

Subhana Allah attribute of hearing Allah attribute of seeing a less action of istilah, Allah, Allah or his new zone, we don't describe it, the key is to describe the happiness Okay, then feel, what is something to resemble to liken.

00:02:59--> 00:03:48

So, to say that, his action is like the action of a human being. So for example, he hears, He hears like us, he sees he sees like us, this is something that is not allowed. Read the next statement, value may no longer be an Allah Subhana, who lays a commit cliche on wahoo a semi or inversely. So what is the belief of Allah subhana wa jamara, that Allah subhanaw taala laser committed to he shade, there is nothing that is like him, he has no co equal, he has no similarity. No one who is like him, Well, he was severely bullied, and at the same time, he is a severe and elbow sleeve. Now if you think about it, if he hears and he sees doesn't the creation, see and hear, how they do. So

00:03:48--> 00:04:22

then how do we reconcile this that he sees and the creation sees, but yet there is nothing like him. So what does it means that he hears in a way that is unique to him? He sees in a way that is unique to him, because remember that all the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala are attributes of perfection, whereas the attributes of human beings are the attributes of perfection. No, they are, you can say, human attributes are a possibility. They're not certain. So for example, a human being possesses an ear, but it's possible that he does not hear.

00:04:23--> 00:04:40

It's possible that he does not hear clearly. It's possible that he hears but he misunderstands correct but Allah subhanaw taala is hearing how is it perfect. We have learned earlier many times, Allah subhanaw taala. He owns he possesses because he is the Malik.

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

He has absolute malkia ownership. Human beings do we own something? We do. But is there any comparison between our ownership and ullas ownership? No. Because his ownership is absolute and perfect in every way and ours. It is partial. It is temporary.

00:05:00--> 00:05:58

All right. So remember, laser commit cliche, there is no comparison to him. And at the same time he possesses certain attributes where he was semi or less lead. So let's move on, fella young foreigner. So they do not negate I'm who from him, man that which was offer he has described be he with it nafsa who himself meaning the listener well Jamal do not negate from Allah subhanaw taala anything that he has described himself with any description, any cipher, that Allah has given of himself, do we have any right to deny it? Who are we to reject it? Who are we to question it? We are only followers right we are creation, we cannot deny any description of Allah subhanaw taala that He

00:05:58--> 00:06:02

has given himself. So here we have to check ourselves

00:06:03--> 00:06:53

that if Allah has described himself with you know possessing a hand or possessing eyes, then what should be our position? What should be our position concerning it? acceptance, we do not deny it. Okay, any attribute and we will keep away from any kind of that we'll that has no basis in the Quran and Sunnah. You see, there are two kinds of will two kinds of explanation. One is that which is based on the Quran and Sunnah. And the other is that which is based on a person's own imagination, his own whims, his own thinking, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, he made the offer even our best along with article 15 rollingwood that we are like, give him understanding of religion and teach him

00:06:53--> 00:07:15

that we so when we study any of the attributes of Allah, we don't go on doing that with ourselves. Okay, because when we will delve into this what will happen? many problems, them seal the key daleel so in order to avoid that, any kind of error, what do we do we just follow?

00:07:17--> 00:08:04

We just follow. So Allison our jamara what do they do? Who are they there are most of your own, they're just followers, filet and funan. Whoa, Moustafa big enough so we don't negate any description of Allah that He has given of himself. And remember, any description that includes whether it is the Tia or slip at fair, Leah, any action or anything about his being? We don't deny anything such as that. Now, is it important to believe in all the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala? Does it make a difference? Between believing and not believing? Of course, if you think about it, if a person says, No, no, no, Allah is hand okay? He has mentioned it, but it's not actually a

00:08:04--> 00:08:07

hand it's just energy, power force.

00:08:08--> 00:08:15

Think about it. One is a person who believes in Allah so panel data, that he possesses a hand

00:08:16--> 00:09:10

belia data who he possesses hands, and there is another person who says no, no, no hands. It's just power, force, energy favor. When you believe in Allah sifat as they are, then what happens? You believe in Allah as a being as someone who has an existence, someone who is real. And if you do, they're incorrect. We'll then what happens? The belief about Allah subhanaw taala just going to be like an abstract faith abstract belief that okay, God is something abstract, just an energy a force. It's an incomplete understanding of God, isn't it? So believing in Allah soprano, tirelessly fat that helps us have a complete understanding of Allah soprano third, and rejecting denying any

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

sleeper

00:09:12--> 00:09:17

gives what kind of faith? What kind of belief? incomplete, unclear.

00:09:18--> 00:09:29

very shaky too many questions, too many doubts. Now, if you think about it, Allah subhanaw taala. He's not a mere force, a mere energy.

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

Okay. He has a being he's a living and seeing God. This is why he has described himself with a face with hands with eyes. So we believe in him as he is he is a Hey, he is LTU. Now how are his hands? How are his eyes? They're not like human beings, eyes and hands on face. Right. Then, who do they resemble? allows hands and his face who do they resemble

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

No one. What are they like? We don't know. Why? Because he has not told us and if you want to find out, then you have to see him. You have to prove yourself worthy of seeing him. If you want to know how is the face of Allah soprano Darla, what is that magnificent face then you have to see it. Then you have to do something right now in order to be able to see it.

00:10:29--> 00:10:38

How beautiful is that face you can only see it in the eye. And so beautiful it is that one of the people of Jenna will see Allah subhanaw taala they will forget all the blessings of gender.

00:10:40--> 00:10:52

they'll forget all the blessings of it. So seeing him is a gift. Seeing him is a blessing. Seeing him is a privilege, seeing him as the greatest delight.

00:10:54--> 00:10:58

And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in his Salah. He would make them

00:11:00--> 00:11:23

along with beer and make a label for Dotty Carlisle Hulk, a Hema elemental hyah to Hydra Lee, and the Dr. continues. That was Luke about Elijah bardell mode was Luke I love that and nobody in our take, I asked you for the pleasure of being able to see your face. It's love that another that site will bring love.

00:11:24--> 00:11:28

It will bring joy and happiness and delight that is unlike any other.

00:11:30--> 00:11:41

So we believe in all the attributes, we affirm them. We don't delve into their details. Because that is a surprise that is a reward that is reserved for where

00:11:43--> 00:11:50

and in order to receive that reward. Do something now. believe in him now and obey him now?

00:11:51--> 00:12:07

What are you Henry fornell? kalama I'm Manuel de Wella. And nor you Henry funa. They distort el kelim the words I'm a welder he from their proper places. Who doesn't do this?

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

The Allison ojima

00:12:11--> 00:12:15

you have the foreigner you know it is from the hurry to distort to change to alter.

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

And Al kelim is a plural of

00:12:20--> 00:12:51

kalama word so alkalyn meaning words, the words of who? The column of who of Allah subhanaw taala and the Quran of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so they do not change Allah's words, nor do they change the words of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam meaning they don't change their spellings. They don't change their meaning Rather, they keep the words as they are. They keep them in their proper context.

00:12:52--> 00:13:04

They keep them in their proper context, and they keep them as they are they do not alter them. Why would anyone need to alter the words of a law the words of the messenger sallallahu wasallam? Why? Why would anybody do that?

00:13:06--> 00:13:16

Yes, to suit their own desires to prove their point. Like for example, I mentioned to you about the man who changed the ayah or Kalam along Musa that Lima he changed it.

00:13:17--> 00:13:22

Right he did the leaf. Why did he do that? To prove that a law does not speak.

00:13:23--> 00:14:05

So the listener will demand they keep away from such behavior. They do not change the words of Allah nor do they change the words of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the words of Allah bayada who? Mabu Patan? Huh? Yeah, His hands are mentioned the Allison essay, based on this ayah that Allah has, hence, they do not do any turkeys. They do not do anytime. See, they say he has hands. We don't say they resemble the hands of so and so. Nor do we describe the shape of his hands. The more how do we find those who do it? What do they say? No, no, it's not hands. Its power. Its nerima its blessing. lucerna say? No, no.

00:14:06--> 00:14:38

Power is something else in hand this something else niraamaya something else in hand is something else. There's a word for nirma. And there's a word for yet. Correct. There's a word for qudra for kuwa. And there's a word for yet they're different. They're not the same. So the LSM that keep away from the Hadeeth. Why? Because the hadebe was the way of who of who? The bunny is sorry, of the hood. And that led to misguidance. So this is why they keep away from this. Mr. Michel ferry.

00:14:39--> 00:14:49

He said I'm going to be late he won't be manager. I nilay Allah, Maura delay, that I believe in Allah.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

Okay, I'm meant to be let Wahby my janilla and I believe in that which has come from Allah. Allah, Allah Allah as a

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

intended by Allah.

00:15:03--> 00:15:42

I accept it. I don't change anything. I don't deny anything. I don't add anything. I don't alter anything. I accept it as it is. Allah morada Allah, and he said, what I meant to be rasulillah I believe in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will be my job Ana rasulillah and in that which has come from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam alhama de la ciudad de as intended by the Messenger of Allah sallallahu meaning without any daddy without any therapy we accept it What are you doing a fee a smell Illa he was at before we continue Do you believe in the same

00:15:45--> 00:16:16

What are you doing a fee a smell Illa he was at Walla and not you will have a donor they engage in ill had fee asthma Illa he la concerning the names of Allah, what is he and his Ayah meaning the Allah Sana keep away from they keep away from it had Have you heard of this term? Have you read it in the Quran? Okay, it had literally means what male inclination

00:16:17--> 00:16:30

when something is not with our sleep, it is not in the middle rather, it goes on the side to the right or to the left. It's not on the right course rather, it's off to the side it's deviated from the same route as

00:16:31--> 00:17:21

the grave, you know, when you're digging straight and then you go off to the side. Okay. So this is it had it had deviation in the names of Allah and His I had some people do this, when they do it had in the names of Allah, this is mentioned in the Quran in total out of 180 will allow him to smell her snare for the room will be here. Whether or levena you will he do? He a smell. Leave those people who do it had in the names of Allah who practice deviation concerning His names. Okay, it had in the Ayat of Allah, do people do that? Also? Yes, instead of facilite I unfortunate is mentioned in the levina you will hidden a fee Aya Tina, layer phone arlena that those people who practice it

00:17:21--> 00:17:28

had concerning our if they're not concealed from us, meaning their crimes are very well known to almost a penalty.

00:17:29--> 00:18:15

Now the question is, what is behad? concerning the names of Allah, it has in Allah's names is first of all, is basically of different kinds. It's done in different ways people do this in different ways. First of all, by giving him names that he has not named himself with. How has it helped because a person is going off the right course? When he's giving a lesser penalty, the names that Allah himself did not inform off. Is he on the right track? He's gone off. He's not in the right course anymore. He's deviated. This is deviation concerning Allah's names, giving him names that he has not named himself with. Like for example, the Christians they gave a law and a father

00:18:18--> 00:18:22

what's the evidence were in the honors? Or which is that our last panel data is

00:18:24--> 00:18:28

a father or anywhere close to being a father. Let me lead well, amulet?

00:18:30--> 00:18:35

Remember that the names of Allah soprano Donna, they are guilty for ya.

00:18:37--> 00:18:38

dokie for Yeah,

00:18:39--> 00:19:09

they'll be via What does it mean? What's the route? What What does that mean? hughster meaning they are based on what Allah subhanaw taala has revealed. We don't have any right to say anything, we don't make anything we just stop. Okay? So the names of Allah subhanaw taala. Or they'll be fee meaning they're taught by Allah alone, we cannot make them up. So we cannot give him a name that he has not given to himself.

00:19:10--> 00:19:12

If you think about it, a human being also

00:19:14--> 00:19:34

doesn't make sense that he's given a name that he doesn't actually have. What if somebody changed your name, and they give you a particular name? Which is not your name. Your mother did not give you that name. Your father did not give you that name. You know, some people they get very offended if you change the name even slightly, you know to show love and affection.

00:19:35--> 00:19:42

They get offended. No, this is not my name. My name is that which my parents gave me so please don't change my name.

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

Changing name is something else but giving a name that you don't have. Somebody keeps calling you I shall Where's your name is Fatima please stop calling me Ayesha. My name is not Asha. My name is Fatima. So this is Sue Adam

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

It's bad manners, isn't it? Even when you're dealing with a human being, it's not correct to give someone a name that they don't have, that they have not informed you.

00:20:12--> 00:20:49

It's unfair, isn't it? So with respect to a loss of handle data, this is also unfair. This is also incorrect that a person goes on describing a loss of panel data with names with attributes that he has not given. Okay. And remember that when people will make names for Allah will make up names for a loss of panel data, they will certainly be unbefitting, meaning they will not be fitting to Allah subhanaw taala. So for example, calling a lot of panel data a doctor or an engineer, or an architect, this is something

00:20:50--> 00:20:58

not correct. This is ill heard. Second way of ill had is the opposite of the first, what do you think that would be?

00:20:59--> 00:21:26

What was the first to make up names? So what's the opposite of that? complete opposite to deny. So, the opposite of the first meaning to deny His name's either entirely or partially, that if Allah subhana wa tada has named himself with, you know, for example, a Samir Albacete, we cannot deny that we cannot deny that. So, for example, the Jamia, they said, Allah has no name.

00:21:28--> 00:21:35

Because if you say that Allah has a name, then you are resembling him to the creation because the creation has names.

00:21:37--> 00:22:19

Objects need names, in order to be identified. Don't say that Allah has names, but come on how much of the Quran Can you deny? How much of the Quran can be denied in this way? So, this is also it had and this person has to abstain from the third way of it had is to deny the meanings of the subject. So for example, a person affirms that okay, Allah is a Samir. But he denies the meaning of that name. What meaning does the name of Samir give? That Allah hears? So they said, he is a Sameer Villa summer, he is Arlene villa. He is Holic Villa Hulk.

00:22:21--> 00:22:24

This is it had? Does it even make sense?

00:22:25--> 00:22:51

If a person says, Yeah, this person is a teacher, but they don't teach. They're a doctor, but they're not a doctor? No, no, don't call them a doctor, then. You can't do that. Right. So this is also ill had the Morteza they held such beliefs about the last panel, that he has names, but those names don't have meanings. And some of them they went to such an extent that they said that all the names, they're actually the same. It's just that they have different hurdles.

00:22:52--> 00:23:03

Okay, so Samir buslee, Allah, alcoholic, they're all the same thing. They're just labels. They don't actually mean anything. It's just different hurdles, because it sounds nice.

00:23:04--> 00:23:28

Or because it fits better. Is it logical? It's completely illogical. If a person believes in a god like that, that has names but those names are meaningless, then what kind of dog can he make? Think about it. When you're talking to someone, you want to be sure that they can hear you. Right? When you're asking someone you want to make sure they're able to help you. They're able to respond to you.

00:23:29--> 00:24:15

They know your situation they understand you. And if you know that there's a person who cannot hear who cannot see you cannot understand, would you bother to even speak to them? No, this is just like the items. Right that a person knows that the idol cannot hear the idol cannot see, the idol cannot understand. So this is also ill had this is incorrect. The force kind of had this term sale, to affirm Allah's names and attributes but liken them to the creation, to consider them as human attributes. So to say things like, yes, he sees, and he sees exactly as we do, he hears and he hears exactly as we do. And this is where people have a problem with affirming some of the names and

00:24:15--> 00:24:51

attributes of Allah. So for example, Allah, we learned from Hadees there are 15 A Hadees, that tell us that Allah descends to the lowest heaven in the last part of the night. They say, but the night is constantly changing. I mean, if you think about it, there's always night somewhere or the other. Right? And then the world because it's constantly moving. So they say, How is it possible? You know why you have a difficulty believing in that because you're doing something? You think that Allah descends like a human being No, don't think of him as a creation

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

don't like and his attributes, his actions to those of the creation he sees, but he doesn't see like us.

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

He descends but he doesn't descend like us. Correct. Okay. Fifth, giving his names to other than Him, this is also kind of it had giving his names to other than him either in their original form or altering them slightly. So for example, the mushrikeen they named their idols after the names of Allah soprano para,

00:25:22--> 00:25:55

like, Allah Rosa, from the name of Allah, Allah disease, then Allah, from the name of Allah, Allah ADA, likewise, Almanack, from the name of Allah, and my nan. Alright, so this is also real hard, because this is not correct. The names of Allah are unique to you. Only he deserves those names and attributes. And if they're being given to a creation to a mock loop in any way, shape or form, then what is that? That's deviation concerning a lessening?

00:25:56--> 00:26:13

So, what do we understand from this, that fellay and funan whomever was of a big enough, so who, what are you had referral kalama Manuel de, what are you doing Effie? usma illa he, what is he? What do we understand that the Alyssa nojima do not make up things a lot of us.

00:26:14--> 00:26:37

They don't go beyond their proper limit. Okay, nor do they fall short. You understand? Because there's two kinds of extremes right that you go beyond the limit or you keep away. This is an extreme. So the Lucinda will Jamal, they stay on the right course they don't fall short, nor do they exceed the proper limits. They don't speak without knowledge.

00:26:39--> 00:26:46

Now over here, it had the ismaila is mentioned and also what it it had in the Ayat of Allah.

00:26:47--> 00:26:54

Now remember that the eyes of Allah there are off two kinds. I had konia and I had shutter Yeah.

00:26:56--> 00:26:58

I had konia What are they?

00:26:59--> 00:27:21

Go Nia is what goen existence, the creation that prove the power of Allah, his existence, his perfect attributes. So for example, a woman a tea, a lady when she was shumsa will come up from amongst his signs are the night and the day, the sun and the moon.

00:27:23--> 00:27:27

Likewise, woman a T halco sumati was

00:27:29--> 00:27:39

the creation of the skies and the earth was deja vu elsina, Tico, and Monaco. And the differences in your languages and your colors.

00:27:41--> 00:27:46

Woman at URI como, Baka burka, he shows you lightning.

00:27:47--> 00:27:49

So all of these are what Kony

00:27:50--> 00:28:07

they're all Ayat of Allah. They're all proofs of Allah's existence as power is exalted attributes. Because the creation is not able to do anything that is mentioned here. Like for example, which human being has a control over the sun or the moon?

00:28:08--> 00:28:11

Which machine can we make that can stop the coming of the night?

00:28:12--> 00:28:26

Which force can we make that can stop the rotation of the Earth? Can we do that? No, we cannot. We don't have that strength? Which force do we have? Because of which we can drive away the clouds? Or bring the clouds?

00:28:27--> 00:28:35

We don't have that. So what do these magnificent creations show the power of? Allah? soprano tarna?

00:28:37--> 00:28:50

Now it had in these ayat, what does it mean? to ascribe them to other than Allah, to say that the sun the moon, you know, what's happening in my life? It's because of other than Allah.

00:28:51--> 00:28:54

And remember that this is done in three ways.

00:28:55--> 00:28:58

First of all, in the independent sense,

00:28:59--> 00:29:10

in the independent sense, what does that mean? That a person says, that it rained, because of such and such star, not because of Allah's decision,

00:29:11--> 00:29:15

but because of such and such force that is independent.

00:29:16--> 00:29:26

So for example, people who believe in two gods, a God of good and evil, so this happened because the God of evil decided this independently and the God of God had no say,

00:29:27--> 00:29:31

you understand these kind of beliefs are they're not prevalent. They are.

00:29:32--> 00:29:59

The second is through partnership, moussaka. That, along with a lot of panel data, this one also decided this fate. This one also, granted this gift. This one also sent this our way, like the Michigan used to associate partners with Allah ship basically. And the third is, you're on assistance that Allah subhanaw taala did this with the help of such and such that Allah sends

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

The sun the moon, the night the day with the help of such and such force.

00:30:05--> 00:30:17

Now, if you think about it, the first one is declared, you know, in the independent sense, by for example, people who reject the existence of Allah subhanaw taala aren't there many people who hold such beliefs

00:30:18--> 00:30:21

that all of this came into existence because of what?

00:30:22--> 00:30:24

Because of a big bang, it was an accident.

00:30:26--> 00:30:31

Those who reject creation what do they do? These are the kinds of things that they say

00:30:32--> 00:30:47

that this was all a big accident this was all you know, an explosion and this is how it started there's no God, God Okay, even if he's there, he's got nothing to do with this universe. So this is it had in the eyes of Allah. Okay.

00:30:48--> 00:31:14

second type of is our shutter iya those I had which the prophets brought, like revelation like the Quran, tilka Aya to LA he, Nat Lu her alayka will help Nat Lu how we recite it, we read it to you. So I have a lot of meaning, for example, the Quran, so it had in the Ayat of Allah means the creep, denial, that no no, this is not from a look put on is not from Allah.

00:31:15--> 00:31:25

completely or partially partially by for example, in the Quran, it is mentioned, yet Allah, the hands of Allah, it is mentioned.

00:31:26--> 00:31:35

Are you in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala present says, No, no, no, this cannot be part of the Quran. This is something that people added later, or there must have been misunderstanding.

00:31:36--> 00:31:44

This is what it had, how can you reject something which is written in the Quran, which was recited by the prophet sallallahu it was unknown.

00:31:45--> 00:31:54

Then the second way of it hadn't is Sharia is through the roof, changing the words and meanings. And the third is maharlika opposing them.

00:31:56--> 00:32:13

So any kind of ill had in the Ayat of Allah, that is also not allowed. Why? Because when a person delves into this, then he will end up holding an incorrect belief about the names and attributes of Allah Subhana.

00:32:14--> 00:32:20

You see, why is it that people cannot believe in a Creator God? Why

00:32:21--> 00:32:33

do you know why? If you see any, you know, documentary, any video, any interview, why is it that people struggle with believing in God? Because for them, this creation is far too amazing.

00:32:34--> 00:32:42

Far too powerful, far too fascinating. And so they say that there is no being who can actually make all of this.

00:32:43--> 00:32:51

Why? Why do they think like this because they have not recognized Allah soprano. When they think about God, they think of him in human terms.

00:32:52--> 00:33:20

When they think about God, they think of him as a deficient God as a God who has weaknesses. So the center will Gemma when they keep away from the hurry when they keep away from it had then what happens believing in a creator god is very easy, then the picture is complete, right? Then the puzzle is complete, whenever you ke funa nor do they engage in the QIf

00:33:21--> 00:33:33

meaning they do not describe the cafe, the cafe of what his Sleaford they do not deny any suffer and they do not go on explaining them

00:33:34--> 00:34:12

whether you must feel alone, nor do they engage in Dempsey likening His attributes to the creation, sleep fatty he his attributes, basically fatty coffee, with the attributes of his creation, meaning for example, Allah has a face the question how what kind of a face is it? They don't go on resembling his face to the face of the creation of Allah subhanaw taala he created how don't resemble don't liken that to the way that people create the way that people make things.

00:34:13--> 00:34:18

So when are you get your phone? What are you meticulously fattiness leave it healthy?

00:34:19--> 00:34:42

Now, the kief What is that to explain the wholeness of something? How it is dimension the fear of something. Now, how is it that you mentioned that you describe the coffee of something, either through your words, whether you say them or you write them or in your mind in your head?

00:34:44--> 00:34:49

Like for example, someone says I went to a mall. It was huge.

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

Okay, so instantly when you hear the word mall and you hear huge in your head, what do you start doing? imagining you begin to make an image a picture of

00:35:00--> 00:35:23

That mall, okay, it has huge parking lots outside, you know, from far you can see it. It's probably multi storey, and it's got many, many entrances and the entrances also are huge. You know, as a person is mentioned, even huge mall, you start visualizing it in your head, okay? Or you just assume certain things. And you say, yeah, it must have a huge parking lot.

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

Why do you do this? Why do you start imagining this? And why is it that you start describing it with your own words? Why? Because you have seen

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

a mall.

00:35:37--> 00:35:41

Okay. But Allah subhanaw taala, who has seen him?

00:35:42--> 00:35:54

No one. So when you learn about the face of Allah, what, what is it that we're supposed to do? Walk? Stop right there. Don't start imagining it.

00:35:55--> 00:36:03

And don't start talking about it. That this is how the eyes are. And if it's a face, then it must also have this and it must also have that, nope.

00:36:04--> 00:36:27

Just stop right there. So the lesson, they do not further describe the subject of a law ever, ever. They do not say things such as Alexander's like this, and this. They do not describe with their mouth, nor do they picture in their minds in their brains. Because this the kief What does it lead to?

00:36:29--> 00:36:29

Something

00:36:30--> 00:36:33

because you can only explain something,

00:36:34--> 00:36:35

you know if you've seen it.

00:36:37--> 00:36:50

Right? And if you haven't seen it, then you resemble it with something that you've seen before. So for example, for you a mall would be typically the picture of a mall that comes to your mind is the mall that usually go to.

00:36:52--> 00:37:00

So this will lead to something. So this is why the endless are not keep away from the cliff. Or the other extreme would be it would lead to 13.

00:37:01--> 00:37:20

How would it lead to the thing that a person says, Okay, let's face it must be like this. No, no, no, no, no, no, we're not supposed to do that. But then Allah has a face. But then you resembling him with the creation? No, no, don't say he has a face. It means his pleasure. His approval.

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

You understand? This is what?

00:37:24--> 00:37:46

negating that Allah has a face abandoning the meaning of face. So this is why the listener keep away from the cave. What are you mysteriously fatty viously, fatty, hunky they refrain from them still also. Because Allah subhanaw taala says fella top three Buddha Hill and Sal in the La Jolla, Anima anti Natal moon.

00:37:47--> 00:38:03

Do not assert similarities to Allah don't say Allah is like this and like this and like this, or that he resembled such and such and such, don't say that, because Allah knows and you do not know. So when you do not know about something, then do not speak without knowledge.

00:38:04--> 00:38:14

And if you think about it, if everything was informed to us, all the details, every description of Allah soprano data, then what would be the pleasure of the hereafter?

00:38:15--> 00:38:17

What would be the reward of the hereafter.

00:38:19--> 00:38:24

And if you think about it, our minds they can only comprehend something up to a certain limit.

00:38:25--> 00:38:43

Right? Because our minds are limited, our brain is limited. So a small mind a small brain, it cannot embrace, it cannot understand it cannot appreciate the perfection and the beauty of Allah subhanaw taala, who is an earline

00:38:44--> 00:38:45

a small mind cannot do that.

00:38:46--> 00:39:30

So this is the reason why Allah subhana wa tada has not informed us, it's a reward for the ACA. And if he had informed us, we will not appreciate him. Given that we cannot fully comprehend, we cannot fully understand. You know, it's like a phone that has amazing features. Okay, if you give it to a 12 year old, this is your gift, and he can hardly use 20% of it. Can he really appreciate that phone? Why? Because he doesn't know how to use it. He doesn't know what all it can do. So is it justice to that phone, that it's being given in the hands of a 12 year old who will drop it and who will abuse it and it will probably have a scratch screen and a broken sight. Is that fair? No. So we

00:39:30--> 00:39:47

are also in this world. What are we very, very limited, very, very small. We cannot fully understand the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala This is why what he has told us, we just take it as it is. We don't leave it and we don't add to it.

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

We don't leave it and we do not add to it. And how can we please unknown because indeed he somehow know who exalted he is less semi yellow.

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

Who He has no semi wala cough Allahu. And he has no cough when I need data who and he has no need?

00:40:11--> 00:40:12

So how can you compare him?

00:40:13--> 00:40:17

And how can you describe him? semi? Who is semi?

00:40:18--> 00:40:21

Someone who has the same name?

00:40:22--> 00:40:30

Someone who has the same name. So for example, phone, phone, there's two objects both of them are called

00:40:31--> 00:41:16

phones. Will there be any similarity? Yes. Can you compare the two? Yes. Can you understand one by knowing the other? Yes. Even though they're very different. Yeah, but still you could. Okay. But Allah subhanaw taala he has no semi meaning no one possesses the names of Allah. No one deserves the attributes of Allah. But somehow it will only want my baby boomer Faribault who was severely bad at Alterna moolah. Whose Amiga? Do you know for him any semi? What's the answer? No. There is no one who has the same name as Allah soprano, dada, less than beginner. While I cook, Ella cook cough who is cough co equal

00:41:17--> 00:41:27

while I'm Nicola who, co for one I had co equal cough is basically one that suffices for the other one that suffices for the other.

00:41:29--> 00:41:47

So for example, you're trying to explain to someone what snow is like they've never seen snow they've never felt snow. Okay, so what is it that you can do? You can get some ice and tell them you know, just imagine crushed ice really, really fine. Finally crushed.

00:41:49--> 00:42:00

You understand? This is what poof in you, ice will suffice for the snow. Okay, but remember that none can suffice for the other except for it's like

00:42:01--> 00:42:09

you understand, there is some resemblance between ice and snow which is why one can make up for the other. Correct.

00:42:10--> 00:42:13

But Allah subhanaw taala lack of Allah

00:42:14--> 00:42:27

let go of Allah there is none who is equal to him go equal to him, similar to him in any way. So who will you strike as an example, for Allah subhanaw taala? You cannot? Who is it that you can resemble a loss of data with?

00:42:29--> 00:42:41

What is it that you can describe a loss of panel data when there is none? Who is like him? Well, I need della nid who isn't it peer and equal arrival? a partner?

00:42:42--> 00:42:55

So there is none who is like a nun who is similar to him. falletta giannulli les and then what Anton darlin, now semi close knit, they're all synonymous, they're all similar in their meaning, they're very close in their meaning.

00:42:56--> 00:43:04

But basically, it's being emphasized that there is no one who is like him. So how can you compare him to anyone? How can you describe him?

00:43:07--> 00:43:13

Now the things of this world, the creation, there's always something or the other that resembles it, even people

00:43:14--> 00:43:20

right, are there people who are not related at all, but still they are similar in their features,

00:43:22--> 00:43:45

perhaps in their manner of talking in their manner of walking. So if you're trying to explain, you know, a certain individual, you can bring an example from here and an example from their comparison from here comparison from there. And then the person have a somewhat image, but Allah subhanaw taala, who can you like and him with? Who can you resemble him with? Less amela?

00:43:47--> 00:43:56

There is no one who even possesses that name. Who else can be called Isla? Is there anyone? Is there anything? No.

00:43:57--> 00:44:01

Who else can be called a Roman? Is there anyone? Anything? No.

00:44:03--> 00:44:04

What else have we learned?

00:44:06--> 00:44:11

Well, I you also be halki subhanho wa Taala.

00:44:12--> 00:44:24

Whenever and not you pass, he can be compared. Be healthy with his creation Subhana. Who Exalted is He?

00:44:25--> 00:44:32

glorified, is he perfect? Is he what Allah and he is high above me and he is exalted.

00:44:34--> 00:44:40

You'll pass what word comes to your mind when you hear this? bs Okay, what is the s

00:44:41--> 00:44:48

to compare something with another in order to understand it. In the term the S is used.

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

That sometimes there are certain matters which are completely new, and you don't find they're mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah. And you want to figure out if

00:45:00--> 00:45:06

They are Hillel or they are harem. Hmm. So for example, certain drugs

00:45:07--> 00:45:24

Okay. Do you find they're mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah you find the mention of alcohol. Okay, that's the closest thing. But cocaine or anything like that, is that mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah? No and every now and then there are new things that people are using as drugs.

00:45:25--> 00:46:11

So, you want to know, is smoking crack cocaine halal or not? So then you say, okay, cocaine is not mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah. But there's something like it that you can compare with, and what is that alcohol? Why is that you can compare the two because both are consumed and both affect the intellect. Right, they both, you know, have an intoxicating effect on a person. So even though they're different and even though cocaine isn't mentioned in the Quran, and Sunnah, but because of the fact that they're similar, you can compare them and when you compare them then what do you do the ruling which is of alcohol you apply to the ruling on drugs also that if alcohol because they're

00:46:11--> 00:46:29

intoxicated, because it covers the mind, it is heroin. So likewise, smoking cocaine for instance or any other thing like that, because it will intoxicated person it will have such and such effect which is similar to the effect of alcohol, this is why it will also be considered hot on

00:46:30--> 00:46:43

here, okay. Now, what is it that you can compare cocaine with alcohol? Why On what basis some similarity This is bs

00:46:44--> 00:46:50

that you put one on the other? You measure the two you say okay, very similar.

00:46:51--> 00:47:01

Okay. Now, Allah subhanaw taala His attributes in order to understand them, can we compare His attributes to the attributes of the creation?

00:47:02--> 00:47:04

No, we cannot do that. Why?

00:47:06--> 00:47:11

Why? Because look at the previous statements and those of Hannah last me, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah

00:47:12--> 00:47:17

and when that is the case, who can you compare him with? Nothing, no one

00:47:18--> 00:47:50

no one at all. Now, there are different types of Ts, when it comes to comparing the attributes of a loss of are there different types of TS, I'm not going to go into the details of that, but just an overview, that one is compare the attributes of Allah with the attributes of the creation and the general sense that you compare the word okay or the meaning. So, for example, Allah subhanaw taala he is in the creation, do they also have hieght? Do they also have had Yes,

00:47:51--> 00:48:46

your he come He gave you life. So, you have hired now, a person says Allah has had and people have hired can you compare the highest of the love with the highest of the creation? Never. You cannot do that. Neither in Word nor in meaning in word as in when you use higher you imply the same thing? No, you cannot do that. Alright, and there's another kind of the s which is permissible. Okay. And what is that, that you compare in? the footer? meaning not in the US are not in the original sense. Okay. But just in one aspect, one aspect. So, for example, a lot of parents taala has said, Well, he let him methylone Allah for Allah is the highest and the best description, the Prophet sallallahu

00:48:46--> 00:48:53

wasallam. He wanted to teach people about the mercy of Allah, soprano darna.

00:48:54--> 00:49:43

And what did he do? He saw a woman whose child had been taken away. Hmm. So what happened? She would see any baby and start nursing. Correct. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked the people that do you think she would throw her baby or you know, something like that, by that example? What was he doing, explaining to them? the mercy of Allah that Allah is more merciful to his creation than this mother would be to her child. Now, if you think about her technically, mercy of a mother, Mercy of Allah, a comparison is being made but not in an absolute sense. Not in a general sense, just in one aspect, just in one aspect. Likewise, in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala himself gives us the

00:49:43--> 00:50:00

example of his oneness and his uniqueness and through the natural world of Allah who masala or Delaney. I had a woman abcam lockira shape well who are called lm Allah. Allah gives an example of two men. One of them is mute, unable to speak and he's not

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

capable of doing anything and he's a burden on his owner. This is the example of what an idle

00:50:06--> 00:50:36

enema July, wherever the owner puts the molar The Guardian, you know, puts this person, he doesn't bring anything, and likewise is idle wherever you put it doesn't produce anything. And on the other hand, Holly Yes, there we go woman yet motovlogger can he be equal to the one who commands justice? Who is the one who commands justice? Allah subhanaw taala. So Allah Himself is presenting an example of himself over years so that we can understand an aspect of his life

00:50:37--> 00:51:18

of oneness. And this is why, you know, when we hear examples that are being given all the time, like in this class, also, I gave you so many examples. Elsewhere also, you're so many examples, remember that they're not examples in the absolute sense that in every single way, you're comparing the attribute of a lot of the attribute of his creation. Always remember that allas attributes are the attributes of perfection. They're nowhere near his creation, but because we're human beings, we need math and we need examples to understand concept. And this is a reason why Allah subhanaw taala himself has given examples in the Quran and the prophets are the ones that have also gave examples.

00:51:19--> 00:51:40

Clear. Okay. So remember that whenever an example is given or a description is given, don't begin to think about Allah subhanaw taala or begin to imagine him as though he a creation, a person, a human being, no, what are you possibly called the subpoena? Who, what Allah He is not to be compared to his creation?

00:51:41--> 00:51:48

Remember that? The matters of the law? Okay. Even they cannot be compared with the matters of the dunya.

00:51:49--> 00:52:03

Okay, like, for example, Indonesia, are there unhealthy? rivers? Yes. Are there unhealthy agenda? Yes. But can you understand the unhealed of generosity? And how often you

00:52:04--> 00:52:43

know, if you start comparing the two, it will be very difficult. Because the rivers of this world, what are they like, people walk in them? There's fish in them. Sometimes it also polluted. There's mud. Now the rivers in Jenna there of milk of honey. So instantly, if you start to delve into it, if you start to compare them to the rivers of dunya, you will say but won't give you money, then? How can you drink from it? Isn't that a waste of food? Hmm, these questions will come in your mind. So what's the answer? You do not compare the matters of the near to the matters of the alcohol, there is no comparison.

00:52:44--> 00:53:02

100 is a different world, isn't it? So why is it that a lot of panel data has used the same words? Because we need some description. Otherwise, what would we know Jenna is? If Allah did not use the word and hard How could we understand? What would we understand about gender?

00:53:03--> 00:53:17

So we are in need of some description and this is why words have been used, which we are familiar with. But those words should not be understood in the same way as we understand the things of this world.

00:53:18--> 00:53:49

Okay, that the river of Gemini is like the river of dunya. No, it's not like that. On the day of judgment, the sun will be brought very close to people. How close the distance of one meal, okay. Now, if a person begins to compare this with the matters of dunya, you will say Oh, if the sun even draws the centimeter close to the earth, the whole earth would burn. So then that means the creation will all burn. No, you don't compare the matters of dunya to the matters of

00:53:51--> 00:54:15

it's a different world completely. So when this is the case with the aka, how can you compare the creation? With the creator? You cannot? Yes, the words are the same. He is a hate and you have hired. He is a Sameer and you also hear but you cannot say they're the same. You cannot say they're the same. They're different.

00:54:16--> 00:54:27

Clear? Well, are you also we have a subhanho wa Taala for innner who are Lem will be enough see he won't be late he

00:54:28--> 00:54:39

because indeed he is our level most knowing, been up see he about himself will be late he and also other than him.

00:54:41--> 00:54:49

He is the one who knows best about who about himself and also about others, others as in

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

others besides Him, meaning his creation.

00:54:55--> 00:54:59

Well as the Kokila will ask the COO and he

00:55:00--> 00:55:30

His most truthful tailor in speech in words, what are some and best hadiza in narrative, unhealthy than his creation, meaning his speech is most truthful, more truthful, than the speech of his creation. And the way he married the way he explains things, they are better than the way people narrate and describe things.

00:55:31--> 00:55:43

You understand? Okay? Now over here, even taymiyah he's giving the reasons as to why we should believe in everything that Allah subhanaw taala has informed us

00:55:44--> 00:56:01

about himself, that why is it that we stop there? Why isn't it that we fall short from it? Or why isn't it that we exceed it? Why is it that we take the words of Allah as they are? Why don't we explain them? Why don't we deny them? Why don't we elaborate them? Why do we take them as they are? Why?

00:56:03--> 00:56:09

Because the information that Allah subhanaw taala has given to us, it is worth accepting.

00:56:12--> 00:56:29

When some information, it includes certain qualities, then you have to accept it. What qualities, first of all, when it's based on knowledge, when it's based on knowledge, if it's based on knowledge, then you can't deny.

00:56:31--> 00:56:50

Like, for example, you are reading something, and you find something very surprising that's written. And then there's a footnote at the bottom. And it says, this was proven in a study that was conducted by such and such person in these years in this place. You're like, Okay, sounds strange, but it's backed by.

00:56:52--> 00:57:01

Understand, so you accept it. You find a statement in a book and it says, this is a hadith that is authenticated by Shia haldwani.

00:57:02--> 00:57:07

What do you say? Okay, I accept it, because it's based on.

00:57:09--> 00:57:23

Okay. Another characteristic is truthfulness, when it's based on sit, when it is true, it's free from falsehood. Again, you will accept it. Thirdly, when it's clear and eloquent,

00:57:25--> 00:57:33

when it's clear, eloquent, again, you will accept it. Now, what Allah subhanaw taala is telling us about himself, what is that based on?

00:57:35--> 00:57:59

a sip, and clarity. And that's exactly what even told me as mentioned in your for in the who are alone will be nuptse, he will be lady. He speaks with knowledge. What else the Kokila he speaks the truth, what? central Hadees. And he speaks in the best way in the most clear in the most eloquent way.

00:58:00--> 00:58:07

So why would the listener believe in anything else? Then?

00:58:08--> 00:58:14

Why would they not believe in what Allah subhanaw taala has said? are his words not enough?

00:58:16--> 00:58:39

are his words not enough? Tell me. They are what he has informed us about himself. Is that not true? Of course, it's true. Who could tell us better about himself than him? No one. Is this speech? Not the best? Is it not the most eloquent? Is it not the most precise it is? So? Do we need the explanation of the philosopher's?

00:58:40--> 00:58:59

No, is the Quran not sufficient? Then? Of course, it is sufficient, because he is our alarm will be enough. See, he will be lady he knows you. He knows himself better than anyone. He knows himself and he knows you. And he's our alum. He knows you better than you know yourself.

00:59:01--> 00:59:08

So then who would know about Allah subhanaw taala better than Allah Who would know him better than him? No one.

00:59:09--> 00:59:23

Right. One of our alum, Obi Wan phocoena. What you will, he is most knowing of everything that isn't the heavens and the earth. In America, what Arlen will remember learns to be he knows who is a stray. So when he knows about everything

00:59:24--> 00:59:29

he knows about himself. If he is telling us his description, then

00:59:30--> 00:59:32

we accept it. And that was a doctor.

00:59:34--> 00:59:42

And then he is a serial killer. most truthful in speech. No one is more truthful than a woman as they're coming alive. Taylor. What's the answer?

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

No one his speeches the most true and then he is accidental. hadiza his speeches, son, acid, best meaning best in clarity. In eloquence. No one could describe Allah subhanaw taala better

01:00:00--> 01:00:23

Then Allah Himself. Think about it, the way people their feelings are described in the Quran. Can anyone describe them in a better way? You know, for example, Masada center, his mother, how she's mentioned, will us behalf of the oume Moosa Fado. He couldn't describe it in better terms.

01:00:24--> 01:00:30

Correct. So when even a human being Allah subhanaw taala describes him in the best way

01:00:31--> 01:00:44

in in Santa Haleakala. How true is that statement? Hmm. So then, of course, when he's describing himself, who description would be better?

01:00:46--> 01:01:18

His own, no one else's, but his. So I said, Oh hadiza. And remember that there's another quality which if you know some information, if it has that quality, then you have to accept it and what is that? Correct objective? A good intent, when a loss of panel data mentions anything in the Quran? Whether it is about himself or us, you know, the day of judgment, our deeds anything? What's the intention? What's the purpose, our guidance, right? increase of our email,

01:01:19--> 01:01:49

you may you know, love with a call until they lose, there is a good reason behind mentioning everything. So when Allah has mentioned his sifat, his attributes, his actions, his qualities, then there's always a good reason behind it. So do we have any justification for denying it? Can we deny it? No, we cannot. So, for inner who Arlen will be Neff see he will be lady will us the Capella Arsenal hadiza min colicky

01:01:50--> 01:01:53

nothing is like the column of Allah, nothing.

01:01:55--> 01:02:04

And this is why for us the column of Allah is sufficient. So when Allah has described himself in a certain way, we accept it, it is the most correct.

01:02:06--> 01:02:33

It is the best description. We don't need any more description. You understand, no person needs to go into the kief into them feel you don't need that. Because if Allah has described himself with the hand and with the face, that is enough for us, we don't need the philosophy of any philosopher. We don't need the study of any researcher. We don't need the discovery of any discover No, because the Quran the column of Allah is sufficient.

01:02:34--> 01:02:40

It is complete with knowledge based on truth. Allah speech, the most eloquent and the most beautiful.

01:02:41--> 01:02:56

And remember that if the people and gin they gather together to produce anything like the hold on would they be able to know? So if all the people gathered together to produce one statement describing a loss of panel data, could they do it? Could they do justice? No.

01:02:57--> 01:03:07

So this is why a cipher from the Quran, it is enough for us. We don't need to look here in there. Obviously Quran and Sunnah.

01:03:08--> 01:03:14

And remember that you know when deviations happen, so for example, the hand is understood as blessing.

01:03:16--> 01:03:28

Force, energy, strength, okay? Remember that Allah is Arsenal hanifa If you wish to say nirma he would have used a word that is

01:03:30--> 01:03:31

closer to the word nirma

01:03:33--> 01:04:10

is the word nirma. Not he was in the Quran? Are there not so many words using the Quran for blessing? Of course. So if the word hand is being used for blessing, would you call that beautiful speech or ambiguous book of riddles? It would be a book of riddles. Right? That you always have to think and think and think and then come to a you know, a conclusion. But the fact is, the Quran is clear. Moo bean. Isn't it moving? It is moving? So this is why we don't need to say things like the ad means nirma no yet means the ad.

01:04:11--> 01:04:37

It means yet, you don't need to interpret it as anything else. Okay, so this is why we accept what is from the Quran. What about the Sunnah? Why is it that we accept that? Why is it that we stopped there? Thumma then meaning Moreover, rasuluh His messengers whose messengers, Allah as messengers, they are slaughtered the goon they're truthful, and they are Muslim deikun or must do Kuhn.

01:04:39--> 01:04:59

Both the words are found. Both of these versions are found in in the different texts of this book. Then his messengers there Sadiq Khan, and must do Kuhn or Masada Kuhn, meaning Why should we not believe in what the prophet sallallahu Sallam has described a lesser penalty with? Why should we leave it? Why should we leave that description

01:05:00--> 01:05:11

Why should we change it? Why should we abandon it? Why should we add to it? There's no need. Why is there no need? Because the prophets of Allah, they were all saw the tone, truthful.

01:05:12--> 01:05:36

Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was truthful, truthful in what in all that he said, and all that he informed us all about Allah subhanaw taala because the prophets of Allah Omar Saman al Khatib, right, they were free from lying. So this is the reason why if the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Allah descends, then we believe why because he was solid, he did not lie.

01:05:38--> 01:06:09

You understand? If there's any other human being, and they tell you something, can you doubt their truthfulness? Of course you can. Because after all, who are they? An ordinary human being and they will lie but the prophets of Allah Allah protected them from like, they were sodic. And they were also Masada Hoon, or must look, if we take the word as must do, must look means the one to whom truth was spoken to.

01:06:10--> 01:06:13

Meaning truth was spoken to him. He was given the truth.

01:06:15--> 01:06:16

He was not lied to.

01:06:17--> 01:06:34

So the prophets of Allah were they lied to know, whatever they were given by Allah. What was that? Truth? Didn't have any doubt in it? No. So the prophets, what did they convey revelation? And what was that revelation slip?

01:06:36--> 01:06:45

It was the truth. So whatever they received whatever they conveyed, it was the truth. It was nothing but truth. This is why we don't have a problem accepting it.

01:06:46--> 01:07:00

If we take this as Masada Kuhn, who is Muslim, the one who is confirmed whose truthfulness is confirmed, meaning the messengers of Allah, they were all believed in, and their truthfulness was confirmed by who?

01:07:01--> 01:07:05

Allah subhanaw taala and also the followers of the prophets.

01:07:07--> 01:07:16

And not just the followers of the prophets, even their enemies. Don't they testify to their the truthfulness of the Prophet? Of course they do.

01:07:17--> 01:07:25

During their life, it happened and even after that, their enemies affirm their truthfulness. They appreciate they acknowledge their truthfulness.

01:07:27--> 01:08:05

So when they're massage the spoon, then what does it mean? We also have to affirm their truthfulness. So if a person says, oh, the prophets that a lot of them said Allah descends to the lowest heaven every night, yes, the profits are most at the cone, we have to confirm them. And if we doubt this statement, or if we abandon it, if we change it, we add to it, then are we affirming the truthfulness of the profit? No. Then we're not doing that. So the marusia who Sadiq Khan, Masada cone

01:08:06--> 01:08:16

deviations concerning the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala, when did they begin? They began when people started following the words of

01:08:17--> 01:08:18

who,

01:08:19--> 01:08:21

philosophers, people who are like them.

01:08:23--> 01:08:58

Because you see, people of different religions, they hold different beliefs about God, okay. And then there are also people who deny religion, and this is not something new. This happened many, many years ago, also many centuries ago also. And they denied religion and they believed more in you know, observing something yourself and then affirming its, you know, existence or truthfulness. And based on that, they rejected religion. And they started using their own logic, and they use their own thinking. And these people are known as EU philosophers.

01:09:00--> 01:09:04

Now, when their writings were translated into Arabic,

01:09:05--> 01:09:10

when Muslims came across their writings, what happened? They were influenced by them, many Muslims were

01:09:12--> 01:09:27

and they wanted to, you know, in their good intention, what did they want to do? They wanted to prove that the philosophers were right. Or that the philosophers their teachings, you know, they conformed with the Quran and Sunnah.

01:09:29--> 01:09:34

You understand? So they don't want to reject what the philosophers were saying because that was the in thing

01:09:36--> 01:09:40

so they said, Okay, let's change this in the Quran. And let's change that in the Quran.

01:09:41--> 01:09:43

This doesn't mean this it actually means that

01:09:45--> 01:09:49

you know, like people do today also, they don't want to change themselves. So what do they change?

01:09:50--> 01:09:53

What do they change the Quran? They change the Sunnah,

01:09:54--> 01:10:00

the ayat which are clear in their words, but just because people will not be happy if they hear this isn't a question.

01:10:00--> 01:10:03

On what will they do? They will change the meaning of it.

01:10:04--> 01:10:08

Like for example, in the Quran it's clearly mentioned what tribhuwan

01:10:10--> 01:10:11

or is it not mentioned?

01:10:12--> 01:10:24

It is. But if when people find out or in the Quran it says beat women. What kind of pollen is that? Oh, no, no, no, it doesn't mean beet doesn't mean hit, it means something else.

01:10:26--> 01:10:56

This is what an apologetic approach to the Quran and Sunnah. Now, this is done with fic. And this is also done with Akiva. And this is where deviations happen when you want to please others. And when you want to show Islam is good. Okay, so this happened at the time of Damien before him, and it happens today also. But for us, what is the criteria? What what the Quran has said? And what the messengers that a lot where to send a message

01:10:58--> 01:11:04

on the one hand is a person who is speaking and he is quoting the Quran and Sunnah Allah will call of a soul.

01:11:05--> 01:11:45

And on the other hand is a person who is speaking and he's quoting what as evidence, such and such philosopher in such and such study and such and such person? What is it that we're going to accept? What is it that is helpful for us that we're going to follow on Allah will call it lesson. So remember, whenever you hear anything that is being said about Allah subhanaw taala, about the Quran, anything about the Quran isn't always check, what's the evidence? What is being used as evidence? Is it the statement of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Or is it the statement of some other person?

01:11:46--> 01:11:53

Is it a statement from the Quran? Or is it something else? What is it that is being used as evidence?

01:11:55--> 01:12:05

On the one hand, or the prophets of Allah saw the spoon must do cone and on the other hand are who we feel aphylla Dena kurunegala Himalayan moon

01:12:07--> 01:12:09

there are those who speak without knowledge.

01:12:10--> 01:12:13

What does it mean by bc Rafi, Rafi

01:12:15--> 01:12:38

in contrast to the prophets of Allah, they were truthful, their truthfulness confirmed And in contrast to the prophets. On the other end of the spectrum, there are alladhina Kuru naledi. There are those who say about him about who Allah subhanaw taala mela, that which not yarden when they know meaning that which they don't know they speak without knowledge.

01:12:40--> 01:12:48

One is a description of a lot that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is giving. And one is a description of Allah that somebody else has given

01:12:50--> 01:12:51

whose statement is going to be taken?

01:12:53--> 01:13:06

Whose statement is going to be taken the statement of the messenger so the longest, because the prophets are one sided one must do. And those who were opposed to them, who are the balloon, or cat, Yvonne?

01:13:08--> 01:13:28

They're either lying, or they're alone, they're astray. Now, there are over 70 ahaadeeth that speak about the meeting with the last panel thought in which the believers will see Allah 70 or Hadees. That mentioned this, seeing the face of Allah seeing Allah subhanaw taala. Yet there are people who denied

01:13:29--> 01:14:06

there are people who will deny that now Should we listen to these people? Or should we listen to the words of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? What should we listen to? The words of the prophets of the lonesome, there are 15 I had these that mentioned that Allah descends to the lowest Heaven, last part of the night. But there are people who say How's that possible? Because logically physically, it doesn't make sense to them. So who is it that we will confirm here, the prophets of Allah? And if you think about it, doesn't make a difference to your email, believing in what the prophet said as opposed to believing in what the philosopher said, Is there a difference? Of course,

01:14:07--> 01:14:35

when you believe that Allah descends to the lowest heaven every night, then what happens gives you motivation to get up and worship Him. If not that at least beggar lack of forgiveness in bed even MiG Tao over there. Right, this cry in bed even right? But if a person does not have this belief, that a lot of sense to the lowest Heaven, then he will say, yeah, Allah is there how where I don't know. What is he I don't know.

01:14:37--> 01:14:55

An abstract belief. So it makes a huge difference to the man when he had a color and this is why he said who said Allah subhana wa tada said, Subhan Allah beaker. little bitter is zety I'm mostly phone was Allah when Allah mousseline 100 Allah

01:14:56--> 01:15:00

Subhana Allah Glorified is your Lord who is he a little bit

01:15:00--> 01:15:06

is the Lord of Might and honor. I'm Miles leafeon above that which they describe

01:15:08--> 01:15:55

meaning the descriptions that the people give about Allah soprano Darla, they make them up your Quran Allah, Allah, Allah Allah. Allah is super Han he is above them. He is free from those weaknesses was allowed. When Alan was selling ma PS beyond the messengers were handled a little bit alameen and all praise to Allah, the Lord of the worlds for sub behind epsa who, so over here sub behind epsa who he glorified himself. I'm above that which was Arthur who he described him, be with it, meaning the descriptions that they gave who gave el Mohali funa Lear who saw the opponents of the messengers, the opponents of the messengers, what kind of descriptions is it that they gave

01:15:55--> 01:16:12

about Allah subhanaw taala that he has a partner he has a child or he has a wife or he has daughters or was a biller, and then later on people said, you know his sizes like this and his width is like this and his length is like this and his face is like this, or it is not like this,

01:16:13--> 01:16:18

these descriptions that they gave opponents of the messengers who are the opponents of the messengers,

01:16:20--> 01:16:25

who those who say that which contradicted the message of the prophets.

01:16:26--> 01:16:29

So Allah subhanaw taala over here in this ayah sub banner,

01:16:30--> 01:17:00

he glorified himself above all these false descriptions. How that he's not like that, these descriptions do not fit him was selama lol mousseline. And in these verses he also selama. He sent his piece on who Island mousseline on the messengers, why? Lee salamati, due to the safety meaning correctness, no Salama, is when something is free of fault, right.

01:17:01--> 01:17:08

So due to the correctness of what makalu that which they said, who said, The Prophet said,

01:17:11--> 01:17:28

and what the prophet said about Allah subhanaw taala it had said that it was safe, meaning it was free from what mean and noxee from Knox will live and what is next shortcoming deficiency and what is a flaw or faults?

01:17:29--> 01:17:46

So the prophets of Allah, the descriptions they gave about Allah subhanaw taala they were free from any deficiency and any faults. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala sent his bs on his profits, meaning he approved of what the prophet said.

01:17:47--> 01:17:55

You understand? So, in other words, what the people made up about Allah subhanaw taala, Allah negated that

01:17:56--> 01:18:01

and what the prophet said about Allah subhanaw taala, Allah affirmed that.

01:18:03--> 01:18:11

So then what do we learn from this for us? Which description of Allah is sufficient? That which we find from the Quran and from the Sunnah.

01:18:12--> 01:18:24

And the third description which we find that is coming from the imagination, or the thinking, or the logic or the words of people, what about that? Do we accept it? No, we don't accept it.

01:18:25--> 01:18:34

Clear for Sub Saharan Africa who was alpha who began mahalo una de Rosa, was Salam al Mussolini salamati makalu in a Nazi when I.

01:18:35--> 01:18:39

So in other words, we have to follow what the messenger stopped.

01:18:41--> 01:19:12

And anything else no matter who says it, no matter who says it, when it contradicts the words of the messengers, then it carries no weight for us. Well, hola soprano who and he the exalted for the Gemini, in fact, he has Gemini, what does Gemini gathered? He has joined together. FEMA in that which was Safa he described was some man and he named Biggie with it. Nuff said who himself

01:19:14--> 01:19:15

do things.

01:19:16--> 01:19:23

Though, Sleaford that Allah has given on himself and the name that Allah has given himself Give me an example of a sofa

01:19:24--> 01:19:35

Okay, summer or yet? Okay, remember, some are Martin obeah and others are that dn fairly okay. Some may be enough so a name that Allah has given

01:19:36--> 01:19:59

a semir Okay. So, in all of these names and attributes, Allah subhana wa tada has jamara meaning he has joined together he has presented both vain enough he won his bat. Beta between a nephew What does he mean negation? Well, is that what does that mean? affirmation

01:20:00--> 01:20:07

Meaning, the names and attributes that Allah soprano data has given to us, okay of himself.

01:20:08--> 01:20:41

They are both some of them, they negate certain attributes from him and others, they affirm certain attributes. So, what does this mean? That Allah subhana wa tada has very specific attributes that we cannot speak about without any knowledge, we cannot make them up. Because when you say about something is like this and not like that, you mean something very specific, don't you?

01:20:42--> 01:20:46

Like for example, if you're told a white hijab, not beige?

01:20:48--> 01:20:51

Not off white? What does it mean?

01:20:53--> 01:21:39

What does it mean only white, it's a specific shade of white, not just anything that looks like white, clear. So, when Allah subhanaw taala has affirmed certain attributes and negated certain attributes, then what does it mean? He has very specific attributes and we cannot use our own mind and imagination. We cannot make them up we have to take what has come from the Quran and we have to take what has come from the Sunnah. And when this is the case that he has joined both nafi and his bad negation and affirmation, then what does it mean? He possesses the attributes of perfection, because the completeness of perfection can only be achieved through affirmation and negation

01:21:40--> 01:21:41

affirmation of what

01:21:42--> 01:21:47

attributes of perfection and negation of what attributes of imperfection.

01:21:48--> 01:21:50

Like for example, if someone says, I love you,

01:21:52--> 01:21:58

if a husband says to his wife, I love you, or a wife says to her husband, I love you. This is what affirmation

01:22:00--> 01:22:03

but it can also mean that they love somebody else.

01:22:04--> 01:22:05

She understand.

01:22:06--> 01:22:10

It can also mean that they love somebody else. But if they say I love you, I don't love anyone else but you.

01:22:11--> 01:22:13

This is what

01:22:14--> 01:22:22

negation affirmation affirmation is, and what I love you negation is and what I don't love. anyone but you.

01:22:24--> 01:22:31

I don't love anyone the way I love you. Hmm. So this is completion of perfection, perfection of what of love.

01:22:33--> 01:22:35

If a person says, I'm tired,

01:22:36--> 01:22:45

you're affirming tiredness for yourself. And you say, I have no energy. I am tired, I have no energy.

01:22:46--> 01:22:57

You're negating, negating any energy from yourself. So what does it mean? completion of perfection of the attribute of tiredness.

01:22:58--> 01:23:02

Likewise, a person says, I'm fine. I'm not upset at all.

01:23:06--> 01:23:15

So what is it that you keep on saying things like that you affirm and you negate you affirm and you negate when you want to show that this attribute is perfect?

01:23:16--> 01:23:29

Okay, whether it is the attribute of tiredness or sleeping as you say, I'm very sleepy, I cannot keep my eyes open. I'm very sleepy, I cannot keep my eyes open affirmation and negation which means

01:23:31--> 01:23:32

completion of sleepiness.

01:23:34--> 01:23:51

Correct. Okay. So, about Allah subhanaw taala also we learn his names and attributes and this way affirmation of what perfection and negation of any imperfection. So for example, what the who lashari color Who?

01:23:53--> 01:24:20

The who lasher econo Okay, Allah Allah Allah Allah Hu l Haiyan. A Yogi's Alka Yogi's alhaj latter, who sinner to Allah now he's so for you. So alhaj that he doesn't even sleep or go close to sleepiness for even a moment. You understand? affirmation? and high alcohol and negation laughter hallucinate. olano

01:24:22--> 01:24:33

clear. Okay. So, this is why we have to believe in all of the attributes and Names of Allah subhanho wa Taala Fela ruler.

01:24:34--> 01:24:59

So there is no alternate. There is no deviation the lesson that you will do now for the lasagna and jamara I'm from that which jabby he has brought on more saloon the messengers When this is the case and the people who wish to follow the Sunnah and remain with the jamara. Can they leave what the prophets brought? Is there any alternative to that? Can we leave it in any way? No, we cannot

01:25:00--> 01:25:07

Why? Because for in no slip often was stuffy because indeed it is the straight path This is the right way what is the right way?

01:25:08--> 01:25:35

Following the Quran and adhering to the Sunnah and that is the way of who slid off on levena The path of those people who are normal Allahu Allah him from Allah was pleased with from Allah short period. And who are they? meaning to begin from the prophets was the deity and the truthful. Wish you had that and the martyrs will slowly hain and the righteous. So the unloosen our divine, this is what they wish to follow.

01:25:36--> 01:25:46

So it also Latina and I'm calling him and who are Latina, and I'm guiding him. And I've been speaking to her that slowly. So for us, they are the example.

01:25:48--> 01:26:04

And this is why some aryna What else are now for that rule there is no turning away there's no deviating from the way of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam from the teachings of the Quran. So in summary, how is it that Allah subhanaw taala will be described?

01:26:05--> 01:26:09

What kind of descriptions will we believe in? The answers are all given here.

01:26:10--> 01:26:42

Now whatsoever being observable will be Matt, what's up OBE? rasuluh right. And then the reasons are given last amela lack of Allah, Lana de la, la casa be healthy. Why? Because for no Allah will be enough. See, you will be lady as the Filipina arseneault hadiza and then why should the prophets teachings be left anyway? There are Sadiq Khan there must do cool and flexible enough so Rama was of a movie in Mohali phone and Russell and send them Allah mousseline.
