listen everyone forgot how to connect all the cables and make the camera work everything we forgot about it because it's been a long break but in sha Allah Who to Allah we are really pleased to welcome all of you to our second term of our kids class. Now for sure this time we have to do things a little bit differently
we can't do things exactly the same as we did before we have to do things a little bit differently
Let me see one second I just want to connect the girls and then we can start

Okay, how's that working?
Very good. Okay, that means we have the girls connected as well inshallah. Okay, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam, ala Abdullah, he was a Saudi Nabina Muhammad who either early he was happy he edge mine. Am I bad. So this is Tim two of our kids class. And for sure, we have to give ourselves an update, we have to do something new, a little bit different to what we were doing before in sha Allah. But not too different. Because I think the kids class was going well before we had to take a break before Ramadan, and then during Ramadan. So we just want to remind you guys of a couple of things.
With regard to the girls, then the girls who want to listen carefully to the class, they can go upstairs.
They can use upstairs, those who want to listen carefully. The girls who want to come and they want to talk or play or make noise, they can use the regular sister section. That's fine. They can go in there which is the room on the on our floor, and they can use it. But there shouldn't be any girls upstairs who are making noise, or who are talking or using their phones or anything like that they shouldn't be upstairs they should be downstairs in the SR section upstairs is only for the girls who want to sit quietly and listen and participate in the class. As for the boys, you guys have got no choice. There is no choice for you. There is no room for you, which is good or bad. You guys are all
sitting right here in front of me. And we're also joined by the people who are watching on YouTube. Inshallah by next week, we will start the telegram group again this this time we are a little bit slow because it's a new class. So we need to start up the telegram group which allows people to comment and ask questions and so on. But for now the people who are watching on YouTube are just going to have to watch and catch up
But in terms of
just give the answers among themselves in sha Allah. Okay, how is this term going to be different? So I really like the question and answer that we did last time. I really liked that way of of learning. And I think you guys did very well with it. So I asked you questions, and you give me answers. I ask you questions, you give me answers. But instead of it being a bit random, I want it to be. And if you guys can't stop touching each other, I'm going to make one of you stand on the other side of the room and one of you on the other side of the room.
Or did you forget how the rules are today? Okay.
We're going to keep with questions and answers. We're going to keep Questions and Answers going. But we're going to do it in a very structured way. So we're going to take a particular topic, and we're going to do questions and answers on that specific topic. Okay, we're going to start a topic, and I'm going to ask you questions, and we're going to learn the answers together.
Okay, so that Insha Allah we get a good knowledge or good knowledge on that particular topic. So today in sha Allah hooter, Allah, we're going to start our first topic and our first topic is the names of Allah.
Okay, we're going to talk about Allah's names. So for the next couple of weeks, we're going to be learning about Allah's names for the next maybe two or three weeks according to what Allah makes easy, but we're going to learn it in the form of questions and answers. Okay, I'm going to ask you questions. You guys gotta try and answer that I'm going to give you the answer. Insha Allah, and that's how we're going to learn together the names of Allah azza wa jal. So we did so we're going to do some revision for some of you it's going to be new for some of you. It's a little bit of revision.
I want to ask you the first question, how many names does Allah have?
When the Advan time comes the, what I did is welcome to give the advantage
Okay, girls give an answer.
Okay, so we had 9999 Many Okay, boys, how many?
100? Okay. 9999
Anyone think different? 299 or 100?
Anyone think different to 99? Or 100?
189 Hola. Hola. Verde. Varrick? You give the extra Buy One Get One Free, huh?
No, no, actually, you are closer to being right than them.
So I'm gonna give you the answer. Now how it works. We remember how the kids class works moving.
We remember how the kids class works. We don't shout out. We give our answers. When we heard the answer. Now you're going to hear my answer.
The answer is that there is no limit to the number of names that Allah has. There is no number to the number of names that Allah has. Allah has names that you don't know and I don't know and nobody else knows.
Can we give evidence for that? What about the DUA Allahumma inni as LKB policemen who are like, some Mater BNF sec. Oh and delta houfy keytab IC o r LEM to who hadn't been cultic always starts out to be he felt elemental high up in Dec. Four types of names. The names that Allah named himself
the names that Allah sent down in his book,
the names that Allah taught to different people like the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the names Allah kept with himself and didn't tell anyone about.
So that is too many names. That's more than 99. But where did the number 99 come from? This is my question. You're right about the number 99 It's true. It's not the total number of names. 99 is not the it's not the what is not the total 99 is not the total. What is 99?
Girls already gave me the answer correctly. At some point. Let's see Ferber.
Why though, we said Allah has more than 99 names. So where did 99 come from?
99 came from were
good try. I liked that. It was a really good trade nearly there. We know 99 Or we know more than 99. But you are you were very, very close and it was an excellent I love that answer. You really tried to think about it. You thought okay, I'll
has more, but maybe we only know 99 of them? Nearly? Not quite. We actually know more than 99 Let's see, who have we not heard from yet? Gone?
No, not quite like last names. Close go on
we've got more than but we have like, I can tell you more than 110 names I can just tell you now.
So there is more we could see 199 We could see 110 We could see 120 The girls got it right. Do you know what the girls said? They said 99 special names. And that's the correct answer. It's not that Allah has only 99 names is that Allah has 99 special names in the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim in Nelly la he tiss it and what is really smart.
Allah has 99 names.
Me atone Illawarra Haider, 100 minus one what's 100 minus 199 men I saw her her agenda, whoever learns these names and practices them, that person is going to go to gender.
They learn them and they practice them. They're gonna go to Jana. So that means out of all of Allah's names, there are 99 special names. Agreed. If you learn those 99 special names, you will go to Jenna, type. My next question, this one for the girls, because the boys had a lot of chance to answer for the girls. Girls. What are those 99 names? Do we know them? All of them?
Do we know all of those names?
Yeah, I'm asking can you name all of them? Yes or no?
Okay, the girls think they can?
Boys? Do you think it's possible to name all of them?
Some of them?
Okay, what I wanted from this is we don't have any Hadith. Or any idea that tells us exactly which name is in the 99 names. We don't have it.
Does that make sense? We don't have a proof that says
these are the 99 names. We have to try for them. And we have to look for them. We have to struggle for them. We have to see and try to learn them.
Okay, does that make sense? We don't have a list of those 99 names. Someone's going to ask the question. What about on the wall in my house? There are 99 names listed on the wall in my house. I can bring you a copy Mohamed Tim, of the 99 names that are on the wall in my house. What are we going to say to them?
We're going to say these 99 names are not the exact 99 That if you learn them you'll intergender they're just somebody's effort to find them. Does that make sense? It's somebody tried to write them and try their best but it's not from the Prophet size of the Prophet size and never taught us every one of those names which one is in the 99 He didn't teach us now have one more question Is it time for a vignette?
Or then you give the event when the time comes we give that a Danny Sharla here because the class is going to go until the comma so just give the other one now inshallah We'll wait for you
as hell spend one
As time goes on you
us find on
hiding your phone
Why do you?
okay I had a question for you. My next question this one's for the boys. Okay. I said that you have to learn those names and practice them. How do you practice? The names of Allah? How do you put the names of Allah into practice? And I'm going to give you an example. If I told you one of the names of Allah is our Rockman, the Most Merciful? How do you then put that into practice? What do you do with that knowledge?
Got one voice gets handled, maybe I word it, shall I say a different way? Make it easier to understand. We said Allah is our Rama. That's one of His Names, the Most Merciful.
Nobody is more merciful than Allah.
How would you what do you do with that knowledge? What is the how does that change you? Or how does that make you a better Muslim to know that? As if you didn't compare to when you didn't know it before?
Okay, so if you know Allah is the most merciful, what do you do with that knowledge?
What the How does it help you?
You can be
very good. That's a very good answer. That's the first one you can be merciful to other people. You know that Allah is merciful to you and he loves mercy, so you can be merciful to other people. That's an excellent answer. That's one answer. Girls, can you help us out?
Very good. Well, Illa Hill, smell her SNA Theodorou will be where you can make dua with that name. Right? So when you're making dua, and you want to ask Allah for mercy, or you want to ask Allah to forgive you, you can make dua with that name. So do you think the more names of Allah that you know the better your DUA is going to be? Is that true? The more names of Allah that You know, the better your DUA is going to be? What else is going to change? Do you think somebody who knows Allah's name, the Most Merciful would ever be sad?
That's a tough question.
Or would ever feel helpless?
What do you think?
They know that Allah is gonna look after them. And they know Allah will take care of them. So they might be sad, a little bit, but they're not going to be in the stage where they lose hope. Right? They're never going to ever lose hope and Allah because they know Allah's name. So that's what we mean by putting it into practice. Okay, now I have a question. We say that Allah has many names, more than 99 but there are 99 special names right? Okay.
Are those names different or the same?
Are those names different? Or are they the same?
As a little bit of a tough one?
If you say the same you have to say how and if you say different you have to say how
The girls are having a full on discussion, Mashallah.
What we seen Okay girls, I heard some interesting things from the girls, they were having a discussion they will bring in different ideas if they are the same. Why? If they are different? Why
God? Different way?
A different. Excellent, that's 100%, right half of the answer. Your half of the answer was 100%. Right? You said they're different because all of Allah's names have a different meaning. And that's completely true. Ar Rahman doesn't mean the same as alpha for
alpha four doesn't mean the same as a Salem.
A salon doesn't mean the same as a Rahim. Each one of them has a different meaning. Okay.
But the girls are still telling me my ear, but they're all the same. Because they all names of Allah. So in that case.
So would you not say that the answer is that they are the same in one way and different in another way? They are the same in what way in the way the girl said all of them are names of Allah, or Rahman is the name of Allah or Rahim is the name of Allah. Al Malik is the name of Allah Allah could do is the name of Allah.
A salaam is the name of Allah. Allah for is the name of Allah. As Samir is the name of Allah and Arlene, is the name of Allah, Allah is the name of Allah. In that sense, they all the same, but as you said completely correctly, all of them have a different meaning. So if somebody asks you are all of Allah's names the same, you have to say, hold on.
In one way, they're the same. And in one way, they're different. They're the same, because they all names of Allah, but they're different because they all have different meanings. And that leads me on to my next question, these different meanings,
these different meanings of Allah's names, that they have actual meanings to them, and they actually mean something. What do we call these different meanings?
We have a name for them
it's a difficult one. I want to see if the girls No, it's not an easy question.
So for example, we said our Ramadan the meaning is the Allah has so much mercy, more mercy than anything of anyone else, so much mercy that even our mercy is just a tiny piece of the effect of Allah's mercy.
What do we call that? Mercy? It's not Allah's name because Allah His name is R Rahman. r Rahim. We call it something else. We call it Allah's attribute. Question. What is an attribute?
Give me a different word for attribute in English an easier word. In Arabic We say CIFA
we say hola smile Siffert
okay girl said adjective that's a good word a way you describe Okay? What else
not quite do something
describing that's what I wanted something you describe somebody with
Yeah, that's what I wanted something you describe somebody with. So for example, Allah's name is our rough man. The Most Merciful. And we describe Allah the Allah has mercy.
Okay, so we learned Allah has names and Allah has descriptions. Yeah, we're gonna call them descriptions, these attributes, we're going to call them like descriptions.
Allah has names and Allah has descriptions. Which one of them is more? Does Allah have more names
than descriptions are more of these attributes and descriptions than names?
Which one of them is more?
names or attributes?
Names more girl said names more. Does anyone think differently? Let's see show of hands on the voice. How many of you think there's more names?
How many of you think there's more attributes than names? How many of you think it's dead even same?
Now we stock
now We stock a telephone number, the scholars differ about it. Now the scholars didn't differ about Hamdulillah. The scholars agreed there are more attributes than names.
There are more attributes.
Because Allah describes himself in the Quran, with some things that are not His names. That's one reason. Not everything is a name. Sometimes Allah just tells you about himself. Right? Not every time it's not a name. And he sometimes Allah tells you something about himself.
So now we know that every single name has at least one attribute and so have more than one. Every name has one or more attributes.
As part of it, inside of it, there is one or more descriptions, but sometimes Allah describes himself with something that is not I mean, so that means there has to be more attributes than names. Okay? That means there's more attributes more descriptions of Allah than names. So when Allah tells you about himself in the Quran, does that mean every time Allah says something about himself?
Does that mean it's a name?
Every time Allah says something about himself, does that mean it's a name?
It doesn't have to be a name.
It doesn't have to be good. We learned a lot. So now when we make dua to Allah, did you actually have Did you have a question you are going to ask me or you're going to answer a question.
Okay, I thought I thought I saw you had an important question. Okay. Now we spoke about names and we spoke about Allah's attributes which means Allah's description. If you too are still misbehaving. Yeah, you too. You're gonna get set separated.
I wouldn't recommend it better you don't misbehave
or otherwise I make you sit right next to me on YouTube in front of few 100 people no problem insha Allah if you prefer.
Yeah, maybe you prefer to sit quietly and shall good. Okay. When we make to Allah tells us to make dua with his names. While Illa Hill Asma UL Husna federal who be Allah has the best name so make dua to Allah with those names.
Okay, how do you make dua to Allah with his names
the girl said praise him
Could you give me an example the girls give me example. But like could you give me example of what your answer is perfect? Your answer is really good. If you can find the example for it. So you said if you want something Allah has like you want mercy. So you can use the name which name will you use to ask for Allah's mercy?
Like a ramen or or Rahim? So you could say Ya ramen or Hamlet? Or most merciful Have mercy on me. So if you want to get Allah to give you something like you really wanted something like I don't know something in your life like an object like something you really really wanted. And it's halal not haram. Yeah, you really really wanted to Halal thing. What name could you use to ask Allah for it?
What name do you think? If you can ask Allah for mercy without Rahman one name could you use to ask Allah for to give you something
that's a difficult one.
What do you think
I could do, okay. I'll could do is to do with Allah being perfect and that Allah doesn't have anything bad or anything wrong or anything, which is not perfect about him. So it's very
Very good. Keep that in mind we're going to come back to it. What else? You could use Allah don't use in sha Allah we never use in sha Allah when we make two. We never ever make dua and say, in sha Allah why? Why do we not make to answer in sha Allah will be
maybe because when you say insha Allah it means like oh Allah if you want to give it to me give it to me but I'm not really bothered if you don't want to give it to me. I'm not I'm okay about it. It doesn't you don't you're not sounding like you're serious. You shouldn't say sha Allah. But you can use Allah that's the name you mentioned, right? You can use the name Allah or Allah give me who else girls you don't know any names of Allah that means the one who gives everything. There's more than one
no, not Bismillah but you can use Allah the name Allah
What about in Surah Al Imran on the first page. When we ask Allah for mercy will have led me led Ankara Hema in Africa and tell
Wahab in NACA and tell what hap so the name of Allah al Wahhab is the one who keeps on giving you gifts and giving you things that you need. That's one of the names you could have used the name Allah Zack, the one who gives you the things you need in your life, like money and things like that many names of Allah we could have used for the meaning that Allah gives. Okay, very good. We understood that point. We got understanding of asking Allah using the name, I want to come back to this idea of changing how you behave because of Allah's names. So if I told you that one of Allah's names is Al bossy, you're the one who sees everything.
And there is nothing Allah doesn't see.
Allah sees every single thing and there is nothing that Allah doesn't see. What does that do for you? How do you change in your behavior?
You're okay, the girls give a good answer.
You're okay, that's very good. You're mindful of boundaries. You're scared of doing something wrong? Why are you scared of doing something wrong? Because Allah can see you. So even when your mom and dad can't see you, and even when you think your teacher is not looking at you, but he is looking at you, but you think your teacher is not looking at you?
Over there, and you think your teacher is not looking at you. But even if your teacher is not looking at you, Allah is watching you.
There's a story about that. That happened with Omar, even though her top I told you the story before, but I like telling these stories again, because they're nice stories. It happened with Omar, even on top. And that was that Omar, he stopped the people from mixing water into the milk. The people who used to be farmers, and they used to bring the milk from the cow or from the camel. They used to want to sell a bit more milk. So they used to put a little bit of water into it to make it more so they could sell more milk. So Omar, he stopped them from doing it. He said you're not allowed to put water. It's haram. He told them It's haram. You can't put water into the milk.
Because what you're doing is you're cheating people you're telling people here is one glass of milk, but it's not one glass of milk. It's half a glass of milk and half a glass. We mixed it with water. Right? It's not allowed.
There was a mother and her daughter
and the mother. She told her daughter to mix water into the milk to make it more so she could make more money. The daughter she said, Mom, I'm not going to do it. I'm not going to do it. Because Omar has told us It's haram.
And her mother said to her something a mother said Omar is not here now.
Put the water in the milk. I'm not It's not here. Who was watching at that time apart from Allah subhanaw taala. In this story who was watching is Omar Omar happened to be he was you know, his usual habit of
you know, kind of going around the city and just keep an eye on what people are doing. But they didn't know it was him. She said Omar is not here now.
Omar is not here. So don't worry, just, you know, mix it mixed with the milk. She said Erma is not watching. But the Lord of Karma is watching. Allah is watching. She said I'm not
gonna do it or not, it's not watching, but Allah is watching. So she didn't do it. When Omar heard this, he went and he proposed marriage for her to his son and she got married to his son.
Because she was he said she's such a good girl because he saw from her that even though she knew that Omar is not watching her, she was scared of Allah watching her. This is how you practice the names of Allah in your life, you learn the name, and then it changes you and it changes how you think. And it changes what you do.
Yes, moving quickly
you get motivated to do things that will take you to Gen X and I want to ask you a couple more questions we finish up and then in sha Allah next lesson, we're going to take some of the names of Allah in question form in sha Allah as part of our class. So
my next question is where do we get Allah's names from?
Where do we get a law's names from?
Okay, everyone's had Quran anyone have anywhere else? girl said the Quran and the Hadith and what the prophet sighs them said, so we can take Allah's names from the Hadith
can we take Allah's names from any Hadith?
Girl girls girls you said to me, Hadith can we take Allah's names from any Hadith?
Only authentic ones? Okay, where are we going?
Where are we going?
No sit. In our class, we don't stand up and leave without teachers permission.
If you want to put something that being you can put your hand and say, can I put this in the bin then we can go put it in the bin shot. Okay. The girl said only the authentic hadith. So we can't take the names from any Hadith we have to make sure it's authentic. If the hadith is authentic, we can take the name from that authentic hadith. Very good. Is there anywhere else we can take it from what about our dreams? What about what our dad said one day? What about I heard the story from my granddad? Can we take Allah's names from there?
Nope. We can only take Allah's names from the Quran. And from the authentic sunnah of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. Excellent. I think we've covered a good amount but I want to give you two three minutes to ask some questions in sha Allah, we take the boys first, which of the boys for the hubby?
Okay, you can go inshallah. Father. Yes.
You said this was to describe
I know what you're asking. You're, you're kind of asking how do we know that that word that is is describing Allah right? So Allah tells us things about himself. For example, Allah says in no homea key do that Qaeda, what are key to Qaeda, they made a plan and I made a plan Allah tells us about himself. So when Allah tells us about himself, that tells us something about Allah. But it doesn't mean it's necessarily a name of Allah. But the names they have meanings like you said, every single name, it's got its own special meaning that is only for Allah subhanaw taala. Because Allah has names and attributes are not like anything else. They're not like his creation. They're not like us,
they're completely different. Yes.
You could only take like Alaska today.
know from the Quran, and from what the Prophet said, salallahu alayhi wa sallam, but we have to make sure that the Prophet really said it. We have to make sure that he really actually said it. And not that it was somebody else said it. I give the example you know, those names people have on the wall. 99 names like a poster that comes from something that they said the Prophet said, but he didn't say it. So I said it's not authentic. They said it was from him, but it wasn't from him. So that's what we have to be careful about. Okay, last question for you guys. Before we wrap up from my side.
I've mentioned it already, but it's not a question but I just want to really emphasize that there is nothing similar between Allah and Allah as creation. Allah is completely different to his creation.
So Allah can see, right? And we can see how is that different?
That's my question. Allah can see. And we can see how is that different?
You are very good, your answer is perfect. How far can you see?
Maybe you can see to the end of the road out here maybe you can see the mosquito that. But Allah sees every single thing in the universe, no matter how big or how small, Allah sees it, no matter how important no matter how tiny is Allah sees. So Allah site is nothing like our site is completely different. Allah site is completely different to our site. Allah sees things we cannot see. Allah sees everything. So it's completely different. Allah sees and we see is completely different. There's nothing similar between Allah and His creation. It's time for the karma now. So we're going to wrap up there in sha Allah. That's what Allah made easy for us to mention and Allah knows best.
We are starting guys at 5pm Many of you came 535 40 We are starting at 525 o'clock. So you need to be here on time. Even today I was a bit late with the equipment because I was not used to the setup in the masjid for a long time. But inshallah we will be starting strictly strictly at 5pm Next week in sha Allah. That's what Allah made easy for us to mention Allah knows best will salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad while early he was happy he edge mine. Just those two red buttons at the top corner. Yeah, both of them bottom
