dear brothers and sisters in Islam and humanity as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh May the peace, the mercy and the blessings of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah be upon all of you.
Welcome to the show Ramadan a day with Dr. Zakir I'm your host, Yousef chambers. And today we are discussing the topic.
Layla toccata the night of degree or the night of power.
Dr. Zakir once again as Salam Alikum walaikum salam wa rahmatullah wa barakato. I think it would be fitting if you begin Dr. Zakir by explaining the term once again, for our viewers for the benefit of the viewers I myself. What does little cutter exactly mean? And what does it signify for the Muslims Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala fully love Allah Allah wa sahbihi mean, Amar, but also Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, rubbished early Saturday, where cilium li y la la San Diego Cali the meaning of the word letter cutter lel means night. Gather means degree of power, or high esteem or majesty. So let's look at the means Night of Power or Night of Decree or night of
majesty or night of high esteem. And as far as the virtues of electrical is concerned. It is one of the best nights in the month of Ramadan. Rather, it is the best night in the full year.
And this was the night in which the Quran was revealed. And Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran
in surah COVID chapter number 97 verse number one to five in Angela houfy laylatul Qadr Varma adrar Kamara, Laila, Laila, Kira, l Fisher, Denis de la mala eco Tuvalu fee ha, be izany mingulay Umbra, Solomon Yata maternal fudge, which means that, indeed, We have revealed this message that is a Quran in the night of power in the Night of Decree. And what will explain to the what is the night of power, the night of power is better than 1000 months
there in the spirit, and angels the descend with the permission of Allah subhanaw taala at every errand,
peace, this gentleman. So from this verse of the Quran, we come to know that this night of light rather, the night of power, the Night of Decree, is the best night in the full year. And this was the night in which the Quran was revealed, and further says, that this night is of power, of majesty, of high esteem and of dignity. And any good deed that is done in this night is better than what is done in 1000 months. And if divided 1000 months by 12, it comes to more than 83 years and that is much more than the average life of a human being. So if you do worship, and this one night, it is better
Then we worship for a full life. And further it says that this is the night When the angels and the spirit the descend down with the permission of Allah subhanaw taala. And in this night, there is peace till morning. And for this mission the Quran introduction, chapter number 44 was number three and for that we have revealed the message deploys Quran in this best at night, and we've only from the evil and in it
we odine what has been decreed, and this knight lead record. Cover also means measurement.
And it's mentioned in the Quran in surah. Chapter number 54 was in funding that Verily, We have created all things in do proportion and measure.
also, in some modeling,
it's the Night of Decree when Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down the decree
the duck dear
what is going to happen in the full year from this lead record to Nicolaides record, that there isn't a beloved possible classroom set
as mentioned in say Buhari,
more in number three, in the book of superiority of laser cutter, how did number 2014 that anyone who prays in the night of color
with faith in Allah reward or his past sins will be forgiven? So these are the virtues of the night of God?
Indeed, a wonderful night and I pray and wish that we can all find that night this year in Sharla during this blessed month of Ramadan, Dr. Zakir several edits and historical accounts say that the Quran was revealed over a period of 23 years. Is there an apparent contradiction between that and what the Quran says that was revealed in one night in later subtle Qatar, there is no contradiction between the Hadith and historical records and the Quran
because if you read the Tafseer of the Quran, the Quran was revealed in length rather, it means that Allah subhana wa Taala he revealed the Quran from Mohammed fools from the preserved tablet to the lower heaven on the light of God
in the light of power in one night and then from that lower heaven parts of the Quran few verses at a time was revealed whenever required in the span of 2300 years in the span of 30 deluna years or in a span of 22 and four to five solid years. So there's no apparent contradiction it was even one night from the tablet preserved to the lower one and from there as in time required was revealed in parts and verses and pseudo wise in a span of 23 years. Okay, thank you for clearing up that apparent contradiction. And similarly as far as the cadet is concerned, that Allah subhana wa Taala has in his knowledge everything
was going to happen past present future and from that tablet he revealed in the night of color to the angels what it was going to happen in the next year from this laser cutter to the next layer is recovered so the injuries come to know everything what's going to happen in the next one year in this night. But in allows knowledge it is there till eternity. Okay. Thank you for clearing up that apparent contradiction doctors okay. Could you explain which is the Night of Decree or the night of power as far as the exact date or day of Night of Power, according to say Buhari, the committee of say Buhari federal body, it says that there are more than 40 different versions with the scholars
have given regarding the day of the date of the night of power. Some say it's the first night of the month of Ramadan, some say it's the seventh night, some say the 19th night, the different versions, but the most authentic, according to the study is that it is one of the odd nights in the last 10 nights of the month of Ramadan.
And it's mentioned in
say Buhari, volume number three
in the book of superiority of the night of color, added number 2017 Allah messenger masala Sallam said
that sick for the night
Floods recorded in the odd nights amongst the last 10 days are from them. So this is the most authentic and further expansion in say Buhari. Why number one in the fate number 49 Allah messenger masala Sallam said that he once went out to tell the Muslims, the exact date of the night of Crowder. Then he saw that two Muslim men, they were fighting amongst themselves. They were quarreling. And he said that so and so. And so and so on with the Muslim, Muslim and devil calling. And Allah subhanaw taala took away the knowledge, that means he forgot it. And the Prophet said maybe it's better for the Muslims. So seek for the length recorded on the seventh
or the ninth or the fifth night amongst the last 10 nights of Ramadan. So you're locked in your
love messenger for the lead recorded and further it's mentioned in
the Muslim world number two, in the book of fasting, how does number 2364 way min club millipedes with him. He said by Allah, he heard show by saying that, most probably the night of cover is on the 27th night because the Prophet peace be upon him. He asked us to stand up in prayer in this night. So according to this audit, most probably it is the 27th night from done. For this mentioned in a say he didn't tell me the the beloved performers, a lot of them said that seek for the night of color on the 21st night 23rd night 25th night on the 27th night and the last night in the month of Ramadan. It's mentioned in say Buhari more than number three in the book of ethnicraft. Number two
zero to zero, that the Beloved Prophet. He used to do a decaf in the last 10 days from that and he's too thick for the lead record in the last 10 nights from done.
It further mentioned in say Muslim
volume number two in the book of fasting How did number
two six to one
masala Sallam said that seek for the night of other lads recover in the last 10 nights. But if you're weak
and if you cannot do in the early parts of the month of Ramadan, then seek it in the last seven nights of Ramadan. It's four dimension in Cebu highly
warm number three in the book of superiority of laser cutter number 2015. Partners Allah Sallam said
that the night of Qatar is during the last seven nights of the month of Ramadan. So from various records we come to know that lead record is most probably
in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. That's the reason most of the scholars including me, shaman bars, mostly scholar, they say that no one knows when is the exact date of light rather, when is the exact day of the Night of Decree. But
it is in the month of Ramadan. And most probably in the last 10 nights of the month of Ramadan. And most probably in the odd nights of the last 10 nights of the month of Ramadan, most probably on the 27th night but no one can pinpoint the exact date but surely insha Allah, it's in the last 10 nights of Ramadan most probably in the odd nights in the last 10 nights of them. This is what the most of the scholars say well, may we find that night inshallah.
Dr. Zakir what was the wisdom, the feel that behind the
concealment of the exact night of laser turrets cover the reason that one can think of that of Allah subhanaw taala concealed the exact date or day of the night Oles recovered. The first that we can think of is because Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us to double our effort so that we can Primo we can worship him more. That's the main reason if the exact date was known, then only done on that day.
Number two, and the reason a lot of monitors can see lists because so that he can make out who are the serious believers and the non serious believers a serious
believer will really see that he does not miss the length rather, and he will try and worship on last night. So from that, and furthermore, he would even try to seek and stay awake late in the night, till early parts of dawn. So differentiate between the serious and the non serious believer. Furthermore, Allah subhanaw taala in this manner conceals many things. For example, alas monitor says that, the prayer the dua, the supplication done
on Friday will be accepted, but does not tell the exact time the person does most application throughout the day Friday. Further it's mentioned se Bukhari one number 300 number 2736. Beloved Muslim said
that Allah has named named names 100 minus one, and whoever knows these names, he will enter Paradise, but Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Prophet did not mention these exact names, names, so that we mentioned as many names of Allah subhanaw taala as possible and try and memorize them and did not reveal which is the Greatest Name of Allah subhanaw taala. So that we mentioned all the names of Allah subhanaw taala. Further, Allah subhanho wa Taala has not mentioned the names of all the earliest friends of Allah subhanaw taala. He has mentioned many in the Quran and Hadith, but not all of them, so that we respect all the believers of the past.
Furthermore, alas, Minolta has not told us which day will be die, if we had known that, that we are going to die after 50 years or so let's enjoy life now. Or 50 years left, and maybe I'll depend on the last few years, we don't know when we are going to die. So we should be prepared that if you die now, our account should be in the positive and try and be prepared for the Day of Judgment. If you don't know when you're going to die. So person is always doing good deeds, maximum as far as possible. And for the model also has been revealed. When is the are? When is the day of judgment, as Allah says in Surah. Look, man, chapter number 31 was number 34 that no one knows are? When will it
come? So that we are prepared to die today prepared for the day of judgment? So that we should always be following the command philosophy not Allah. So that's the reason Allah subhanaw taala has not given the exact day and date of death. Okay, well, Doctor, that's very good. I mean, the only thing that I'm a little bit concerned about now is how should the many of the viewers will be concerned about is how exactly should you or a Muslim Sikh lay little cutter. There are guidelines given in the audit how you should seek for lead record, its mission so not without worry, number one, in the book of Salah Haddad number 1370, our Dharma repeating, he said, that we used to fast
along with the Messenger of Allah. And he never woke us up for prayer in the night, except
on the seven last remaining nights, where we prayed till one third of the night. And on the sixth remaining night had no Vega. And again, on the fifth remaining night, he woke us up and we prayed till half the night. And when the Prophet was about to go, yes there Why don't you pray with us? The full night morning. So the Prophet said, that anyone who prays kill the man pray that as do he has prayed for the full night.
And further, it's mentioned in say Buhari, one, number three, in the book of superiority of signet, rather
petite number 2014, that anyone who prays
in the light of light recover
with sincere faith and seeking Allah reward, all his past sins will be forgiven.
And it's mentioned in the remedy, how did number 3512
the other guy Sham and Larry plead with the life of the Prophet. She asked the Messenger of Allah subhanaw taala that what if I find laser cutter? What should I do?
So the Prophet replied, that you should do dua and supplicate
to Allah subhanaw taala see, that? Oh Allah subhanaw taala you are most forgiving and you love forgiveness. Therefore Forgive me, as mentioned in, say Bukhari one number three, in the book of fasting, how did number two zero to four
that the Beloved Prophet Musa wasallam during the last 10 days of Ramadan, he is to tighten his waist belt. That means to work harder.
And after in from relationship with the wife, and he used to stand in prayers in the last 10 nights. And he's to wake up his family,
his father mentioned say Muslim, or number two, in the book of fasting, how did number 2644 that Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him? In the last 10 nights of Ramadan? He's to exert himself more and worship Allah subhanaw taala more pray more and more in the last 10 nights. So this is the way how a Muslim should seek later.
Are there any signs
of laylat al Qaeda
mentioned in the Hadith or the Quran?
There are signs mission doctrine the candidate of late rakata para hamdulillah all the signs that are mentioned they are seen after lead recorder has passed. So it is the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala he does not want us to know exactly well if you are known then we have seen the site and then prayed
and then worship and the other nights we would have just you know, been a bit relaxed and not worship Allah Spano tala, this hadith mentions a Muslim, that
the following have lights rather, the next day, the sun will be without rays, and appear like a dish until it rises high. Explore the mission in say, Muslim, Oregon number two, in the book of fasting, and ID number 263. That the day following late under the sun will not have raised it further mentioned in say Muslim world number two, in the book of fasting, how did number 2635 The Prophet said that on the night ladies rather, the moon will appear like a plate towards the end of the month.
And it's mentioned in say, howdy, Ronnie and me as a man, that the light of light will not be too hot, neither will it be too cold.
And it will be a generous Night, night of happiness. And
the sun the next day after it's recorded, will appear weak and reddish. So these are the signs Allah subhanaw taala has mentioned this ad, but all of them there after the lead record comes to that Viet faithful,
appropriate wisdom then in that case.
Could you tell us how the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to exert himself in the last 10 days of the month of Ramadan.
Adam is mentioned earlier it's mentioned in say Buhari more number three in the book of Attica, of his number two zero to four.
Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him during the last 10 days, he is to tighten his waist.
And he used to pray in the last 10 nights of from that. And he's to wake up his family and keep his family away. And he's to exert himself that needs to come to know. The first thing the Prophet did was he straightened his waist that means it's too hard. And secondly, he is to abstain from my relationship
with his wife, because he used to be an attic off in the last 10 nights. And one of the requirements of ethic AF is that you cannot associate with device as mentioned the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was the mighty seven. Further, he used to stand up most of the nights or throughout the night, in the last 10 nights or from then we used to spend standing in print Allah subhanho wa Taala which he loved. There is a prohibition you should not spend the full night but that's all the nights every night of the year. Otherwise, less than nights you can pay for the most of the night or even for the full night. It's permissible for this mentioned the diff to wake up his family. That means
he was received or that even his wives woke up and pray to Allah subhanaw taala see hillels ricotta. That's important point to be noted. And furthermore used to put more effort is to pray more is to do more do are you more Decker trying to come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala during the last 10 nights.
Okay, Doctor, another point which is important regarding women in Acts of ibadah, during seeking Laidlaw to Qatar, now if a woman is on her menses period, she's not able to fast or to pray, how would she observe? Layla Takata as far as menstruating women are concerned, they can do all acts of worship or acts of a Baba during ministration except praying, fasting circum ambulating on the Kaaba
Except for these four acts of worship, a woman can do all acts of worship while administrating. The things that a woman can do in the last 10 nights, if remonstrating is that, surely, she can do a check on this application, as the Prophet said, sounded intimidated number 2370. That supplication door is one of the best forms of ibadah. And why is anybody
she can seek for forgiveness by saying stuff in law. I think forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala and the hadith of Elijah Min llopis dito is mentioned in tirmidhi, Hadith number 3512. The holiday shamon lo visitor, Jasmine sort of Salaam. That is she knew that this was the night of life together What should she do? So the Prophet answered that she should pray to Allah subhanaw taala and say that you are the one who's off forgiving. You love forgiveness. So please forgive me. So asking forgiveness is one of the best things a person can do. The other thing a woman can do when she menstruating during these days, Michigan digger For example, She can read Savonarola, Haven, hamdu
lillahi Wa La La La La La Jolla.
Which means not to be to Allah.
Praise be to Allah did know God worthy of worship except Allah. And Allah is the Greatest. She can read subarna live BMP, meaning Laura bitwala. And praise be to Allah, she can read Sorbonne, Allah will see that Praise be to Allah Allah insecurities. So one is doing different as much as they do, it's better for them. And they can also do recitation on the Quran, and they can read the Quran. So all these other acts of worship will get them to the last monitor during the nights.
And I'd like to now put to you some of the viewers questions of the topic, first question we have, if everything is destined by Allah, and if I commit any sin, then who is to blame?
If I am destined to commit a murder, and then I commit a murder, but naturally, I will not be responsible for it. It is Allah who has destined it, therefore, he will be responsible, then why should I be punished for this?
As far as the question of discredit is concerned? It's a common question asked by Muslim level and non Muslim about the color of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it's difficult to understand.
I'd like to give an example for people to know that Allah subhana wa Taala has
ilma gab has knowledge of the unseen he has knowledge of the future. Let me give an example, that if in a classroom, there is a teacher who teaches the students after one year has passed, before the examination, the teacher predicts that this child
he will come first class first, this child, he'll get a second class this child see he will fail. And once the examination takes place, and when the reserves are out student a guest a first class first student B he gets a second class student see he fails. The question I would like to ask is that just because the teacher predicted that the student si would fail? Can the student see blame the teacher saying that because the teacher predicted that I will fail I have failed
but natural answer is no. The teacher predicted the student a will get a first class fault because he knew that the student was studious and he was intelligent. So then we would have restaurant to then see his to play hooky. He used to bunk school. He never used to study nerves do the homework. So based on that, the teacher predicted the students he would fail, but student see cannot blame the teacher because the teacher predicted I will fail therefore I failed. The student himself is responsible. Similarly Allah subhanho wa Taala has in my game. For example, when a human being comes at a crossroad There are five roads from which he can choose road 12345 he has the Free Will he can
choose any he chooses road three.
And that's already mentioned in the destiny that he will choose road three. It is not because Allah has mentioned he will choose road three that he has chosen road three, it is because he will be choosing route three. Allah subhanaw taala writes in advance because he has a game like how the teacher predicts in advance. So Allah knows this person has a choice he can choose
Use any of the roads from the five roads available. But it uses road three. So Allah knows in advance he will be choosing road three. Therefore he mentioned in the car that in the third day that he'll be choosing road three. Now once he goes to road three, after some time, he comes on another crossroad. 123, he chooses or three, because he will be choosing road three, Allah knows in advance as well again, so he's mentioned that after some time, he'll come at another crossroad. And this particular person will choose again, road three, it is not because Allah has mentioned in that deed, that he will choose road three, that is choosing two or three, it is because he has chosen or three,
Allah has written in advance. It's a bit confusing. But he realized that ls l maghen. Same way, a person
if he wants to earn a livelihood, he has both choices. Either you can try hard, work hard, and do on his job and on that money. Or he can rob or he can steal the choices. This person prefers to steal. Now Allah knows in advance that at the age of 25, he has the option of working hard and earning honest living or stealing.
But this person steals. So Allah knows in advance he will be stealing. Therefore Allah has written that I did he will steal. It did not because Allah has written that he has stolen it is because he will be stealing a letter in advance. So similarly, if a person commits murder, it's his choice. He can either not commit murder, or he can commit murder crisis, if any commits murder, who's to blame? He's to blame. So yeah, we realized that allies ilma gap, that is the reason they're the same, in although there's a very good couplet by Mike Bell with clinical retina Buland berakha Pele CUDA, prebendary, buccellati asaka, which means that make yourself so great
that before Allah writes the destiny, he will ask you, what is your wish?
Thank you for that wisdom, offering that as an answer to that particular viewer and many other viewers that probably needed to know that as well. Question two, how correct is the phrase which some people say in that?
Oh Allah, I do not ask you to change your decree. But I do ask you to help when it comes to pass.
I'm aware that many Muslims have this door. But this is not the right way to ask Allah subhanaw taala well, Allah has told us that we can ask Allah subhana wa Taala. Anything, we can ask for forgiveness, we can ask for the good things. We can even ask him to. Even if he had mentioned something in our decree that something wrong is gonna happen, something bad's gonna happen, we can ask him for good. So it is wrong to say that we cannot ask you to change our decree. But please help us further as mentioned in the Quran, in sort of Allah, Chapter 138 faith, that will also be a big fella that say, We seek refuge with the Lord of down from the mischief which has been created. So we
are seeing last minute Allah for prediction, refuge. It's mentioned in, say Buhari, work, number nine, in the book of Hadith number 6616. That the Prophet said, that take refuge with Allah subhanho wa Taala. From the severity in the calamities
from the evil end, and the bad fate
and from the malicious joy of the enemy. So, but naturally, you can ask Allah subhanaw taala to change has gathered, but I like to give an example
that suppose there is a student for ps4 examination, and he hasn't fared well. I know that he's going to fail. So he comes home, and he pays for Allah subhanaw taala that he Allah subhanaw taala please pass me
and Allah Spano tala accepts his prayer. So in the calendar, it was mentioned that this particular student, he was going to fail, he comes home, and he placed a last minute Allah, Allah subhanaw taala even knows whether the person is going to pray to him or not. And Allah even knows where they would accept this p or not. So in the original code that was mentioned, you're gonna fail the examination.
Allah also knows in advance, they will come and pray and ask Allah to pass so that you pass him the examination. Allah even knows that he's going to accept this prayer and pass him the examination. So actually, the color is perfect, it doesn't change, but the previous color, which was there they go to fail is there. So when you pray, the previous color gets changed. But Allah also has a gay
That whether you're going to pray or not, therefore always you should pray to Allah subhanaw taala and ask for his forgiveness and ask for help. So it's also mentioned the other day, we want to pray, and Allah will accept this prayer and in pass. Okay, that's good. That's very good.
There's hope for us all. In other words, next question. What exactly is the meaning of belief in alcator. As far as belief in God is concerned, it is one of the pillars of human believing in Qatar. And there are four points that are to be noted in the belief of color, number one, that Allah knows everything. Allah has knowledge of everything, the past, the present, and the future.
He has knowledge of things with a general as well as specific, he has knowledge from eternity to eternity. So Allah is the one who knows everything. Yes, I'll make a point number two, Allah subhana wa Taala has written this in the law of fools in a tablet preserved. And both these points of belief of God that is mentioned in chapter number 22, was number 70. That knowest not thou that Allah subhana wa Taala knows everything in the heavens and the earth. And indeed it is kept in his accord. And for Allah, it is easy. That means number one, that Allah knows everything. And number two, it's kept in his record, as mentioned in chapter 22, was number 70. It's mentioned it's a Muslim, more
than than before, in the book of Hadith number 61. Six, that the Messenger of Allah said that Allah ordained the measure of the creation of the universe 50,000 years before they haven't done the earth who created it for the mentioned in sunon. Without volume number 300. Number 463. That Allah subhana wa Taala first created the pen and said to it, right, the pendant died, oh, Lord, watch that right. And Allah subhanho wa Taala wrote the decree, the color
of all the things till the beginning of the art, till the renewal of judgment. These are the first two points. The third point of father is that everything happens with the will of Allah subhanaw taala everything as Allah says, In the Quran, in Surah casas chapter number 28 was number 68. Last one Allah creates and chooses as evils. It's mentioned in Saudi Brahim, chapter number 14, Muslim 27 that Allah does whatever he wills and it's also mentioned in sort of orange chapter 85 Muslim 16 Allah is the door of all intents. So you will become to know that Allah subhana wa Taala waterway intends he can do
whatever he wants, he can do. And further, it's mentioned in Surah Moran chapter number three, Muslim six, that Allah subhanho wa Taala shaped to in the womb as he pleases.
As mentioned Surah Nisa, chapter number four was the morality that if allow build, you'd have given power to them, and they would have fought you
as mentioned. So the Anam chapter six, verse 112, Allah Allah says that if Allah willed, they would not have done it. The fourth point in the belief of God that is that all things that happen are created by Allah subhanaw taala, in the essence, in that tribute, and in the movement, as Allah says, In the Quran, in Surah, surah chapter number 39 was 262 that Allah is the Creator of everything, and he is the guardian and disposal of all affairs.
It's for the mentioned in sort of Oregon, chapter number 25, was number two, that Allah subhanho wa Taala created the heavens and the earth, in do proportion,
which measured sort of Suffolk chapter number 37 was the matrix that our last month Allah created you and your handiwork
and further, just because Allah subhanaw taala is the person who has created everything happen. That does not mean that it interferes with the fievel Viet have a free will. And there are many of us in France, did you talk about that? That we have a free will and the Sharia says that and we know in our digital life that we have free will Allah for this isn't the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was number 223. Talking about approaching this poses that you can approach your tilt the way you like and when you like it, when you have a free will. It's four dimensional Robin, chap number 64 was number 16.
That fear Allah as much as you can listen to him.
Obey Him. Admission Surah Baqarah chap number two was number 26. That Allah subhanho wa Taala does not lay a burden greater than a person can bear
and he earns every good that he does, and he suffers every evil that he earns. So, based on this, every human being has a free will.
we see that they do a life For example, there are certain things which go on, by Allah subhanaw taala, he has fixed certain things about the about life, everything is alive, you will have free will, if I want, I can lift my hand, if I want, I can bring it down, if I want, I can walk if I want, I can sit, it's my will. What certain things for example, the heart beating, it beats the quality, the will of Allah subhanaw taala I can if I want to stop my heart from beating I cannot do it. For example, if I feel cold, I shiver, if I want to I cannot stop it. It is the will of Allah subhanaw taala. So Allah has given a free will to human beings. That is the reason if a person does
something evil or does the sin he responsible for it. And Allah has given the guidance in the Quran, what is good and what is bad.
resolve the psyche. Next question from a viewer.
He mentions, some consider worldly prosperity, as seen as a sign of Allah's pleasure, while misfortune and loss are seen as evidence of Allah's anger, is it always true? If yes, then why do many non Muslims lead a prosperous life, while many Muslims lead a life of poverty and misery in this world,
it is not a thumb rule, that if you're prosperous or less pleased with you, and if you're poor, or if you're married, or not pivotal, there's not a normal rule is that when ever there is calamity, whether it be poverty, whether it be misery, it is either a test for you, or it's a punishment for one last minute,
whenever there is prosperity, and the good thing that happens, it's either a test for you, or it's the reward from Allah subhanaw taala. I want to give an example that will assist in the Quran. It's very unfair, that your children and your wealth are a test for you.
You know, the good thing the children and wealth a good thing, but it's a test for you.
On the other hand, it faith is for any such high performers 124, that whoever does deeds of righteousness, beat a male or a female, and a believer, we will put him in Paradise, and not the least injustice represent to them. A similar message is repeated in chapter 16 was the 97 that anyone that does deeds of righteousness, beat a man or a woman and has faith, he'll be rewarded for all the good he has done. So yeah, it shows that anything good that happens the world children, it is a test for you. Or it is a reward. And the reward is talking about gender
when any calamity befalls you,
as Allah says in the Quran, in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was the 155 be sure we will test you with something of fear and hunger, with loss in goods in lives, or fruits of your toys, and give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere, you're the test is talking about loss in wealth, loss in life. It's a calamity, unless testing you, and those who patiently persevere, they'll be successful in this test. On the other hand, calamity is also punishment, as Allah says in Surah Hood, Chapter 11 was number 82, talking about the common loot, that Allah subhanaw taala makes the two cities upside down Sodom and Gomorrah.
And he showers brim stones, hard baked clay, layer upon layer. So this is a punishment. Unless it is Rebecca, chapter number two, verse number 216.
That you may dislike a thing, which may be good for you. And you may like a thing, which may be bad for you. Allah knows. And you don't know. It's for the mentioned in sort of normal. Chapter number 27 was number 40. hasn't been faster a bit. This is by the grace of the Lord. And my lord is testing me whether I'm grateful or ungrateful. This was mentioned by
Solomon in a Salaam when the hill gets the throne in a wink for a visit by the Minister of the Lord. And He further says the Lord is testing we are them grateful and grateful. And those who are grateful they will get the reward and those who are ungrateful, Allah subhanaw taala does not require them.
mentioned the Quran in Surah Nisa japp number four was in 79. All the good that happens if some Allah subhanaw taala. And all that evil it takes place. It is because of your own self, that all the good from Allah and all the evil is from our own cells.
It's mentioned in sort of mold chapter 16 was number two LSD clinical model hatha, it's Allah Who has created that and life to test which of his green deeds.
Allah says in Surah ambia, chapter number 21, verse number 35, Guru Noxon, Zakat remote, every thought shall have a taste of that, and be sure, we will test you with something that is evil, and something which is good by way of trial, and to us is our turn. So we come to know that whenever there is a calamity, it's either a test or a punishment, whenever something good that happens either test or reward from Allah subhanaw taala Zaha takasaki Next question, doesn't there seem to be a contradiction in the code and when it mentions in several verses that everything happens by the will of Allah in and furthermore, in one verse, the good is from Allah and the bad, or the evil is from
yourself. A mini Watson in the Quran, which mentioned that everything happened with the will of Allah subhanaw taala, as we discussed in the earlier answer, but it's mentioned in chapter four, verse number 79. All the good that happens is from Allah subhanaw taala and all the evil, it's from the human beings. On the face of it, it seems to be contradiction, but if you realize the real meaning is no contradiction at all. For example, the electricity comes from the head power station is coming, the power is from that tradition. And with that, you can use good things, you can use equipment, you can use missionary, but if we put our finger in a live fire, we will get a shock to
the power is from the headquarters, head electric station. But if you put a finger and do a thing, which is not supposed to be done, then you get a shock. So the good is from the power station, but if the power is cut from the headquarters and don't get a shock,
but we cannot blame that because the power is coming from there. They are to blame for the shock. It is me who has put the finger in life fire. So I'm to blame, but the power is coming from that electric station. Let me give you another simple example, that the Father is head of the family
he owns and he spends on the family. Three is responsible for everything that is spent.
But at the same time, he gives pocket money to his son now with the pocket money what the son disease. He Gamble's here, that echo Hall.
So who's to blame the person to blame for doing the sin of gambling and having intoxication is the son, but the money is coming from the Father. So it is happening with the money of the Father, but who's to blame
the son the same way, everything happens that of Allah subhanaw taala. But if anything good takes place it because of Allah subhanaw taala any bad, it is because of you. So hopefully the example will make you understand that there is a correlation between both these verses. There's not a contradiction, but it's the clarification. Okay, thank you, Dr. Saki, I'm sure that sort that one out and the viewer will be suitably satisfied in Sharla. The doctors accurate. The last question we're able to fit in today is how should a Muslim respond to the calamities that he or she faces due to what is written in his or her destiny?
As I mentioned earlier, whenever any calamity befalls
any human being, it is either a test or it's a punishment. If it is a punishment, like it's mentioned in chapter number seven was an image to the Allah subhanaw taala. Turn the two cities upside down of common loot and showered brimstone of heartbreak layer upon layer, that means it's a punishment. So if it's the punishment, then that person should seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. And it shouldn't depend. You should stop doing that evil act. Stop doing that thing should promise not to do it again. If you can reverse it, you should reverse it
and seek for less forgiveness. If
it is a test, like Allah says in Surah Baqarah chapter two was the 155 that surely we will test you with something of fear and hunger
or loss in goods or lives or toys of your fruit and give glad tidings to the person who patiently persevered
and further mentioned Surah Baqarah. Chapter Two was the 146 that they are the people who say
In Melilla, he was in a villa June that from him become and tremella return. So these talks about the people that a believer, if anything, calamity befalls, if he is at fault, look into himself. If he's done some sin, you should immediately repent and ask for forgiveness. If it is a test, then it should patiently persevere and he should have suffered and in Melilla he were in June. For example, if a person falls over that takes place, of course and get sick. The right thing as the Quran says, in Lahore, ilhabela you from him recommend him with a return. And, as mentioned sort of tobei chapter nine was done. 51 say nothing happened, except with the decree of Allah subhanaw taala for
Allah is our protector, and tell the believers that put their trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala.
It further mentioned in Sarita qaboun, chapter number 64 was the 11 that no calamity can befall us, except with the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So let us have belief in Allah, for Allah is the one who guides our heart.
And it's mentioned in chapter nine, verse number 10, that reward is with those who patiently persevere, will surely have a reward.
And it's mentioned in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was the 153 Yeah, are you unless in immunostained, with somebody with Salah in allama Sabri that Oh, you believe,
seek Allah's help with patience, perseverance and prayer. For verily, Allah with those who patiently persevere, so, a person to patiently persevere, and the the Hadith is mentioned, say Muslim boy number four, and number 7138, the beloved masala Salaam said the strange other way, the four believer, if anything good happens to him, he tanks Allah subhanaw taala and if any calamity befalls, he patiently, procedures, and yet there is good for him in the hereafter. So whenever any calamity takes place, if he's at fault, it should rectify it. Otherwise, he should patiently persevere for Allah says, Seek help of Allah subhanaw taala with patience, perseverance and prayer
