uman being means to tell a lie cut

up a whole he he invented he fabricated

it it's a lie because human beings

cannot create Lane Lane

nopal do Baba they won't create even a

fly way in a stem Aruna even if they all

get together to do it they can't create

even a fly

Allah is Harlem and he alone is chronic

Allah is now look at this Allah says

honey palmas over right at Han

Appleberry on mouse over these three

turnip berry

misawa what does that mean honey berry

misawa these are stages of divine

creation colic is when a loss yada when

he decides to create something right and

this is not get out of time because

Allah is not in time but it's it's you

going to swallow hey aunt Angie Xia this

is a it can be explained our Ummah have

explained it but it's not that this

lecture is not that place to explain

that but you have garlic and then you

have baddy baddy is the one who brings

the materials into existence and that's

why we're called Betty

ah right creation is called Betty and

the messenger of Allah's Hyrule Betty

he's the best of the Betty who created

the barrier el badi so this is the

bringing into them that existence the

materials but that's not enough in the

creational process then what happens

Musa will the fashioner of those

materials so Allah is fashioning the the

womb in the womb he's fashioning the

embryo he creates it from a nut farm and

and then look at that not for I'm charge

not far I'm charged a a mixed drop of

fluid now one of the things that the

mofo children had a difficult time

understanding was why Allah uses matzah

and then he uses I'm sad because nutfah

is a singular feminine and it would

necessitate a singular feminine

attribute or a FIFA and yet here I'm

charge is not it's a plural because it's

very up and look for it doesn't have

internet and and this was something they

found difficult but if you look at the

mixing of genetic materials in the

when the male and the female come

together in the DNA begin to mix it is

literally a Miss it's uncharged it's

exactly the way Allah is describing it

and so he brings us together and then

the messenger of allah sallallahu said

I'm said said glory to the one who shut

a semi-rural vasa chakra means to cut

now if you watch and we've seen this now

in in in embryology if you watch when

the ears actually begin to emerge it's a

shock it's like a cutting and you'll see

slits begin to cut out in the actual

embryo and the eyes begin to cut that is

in this that's in a microscopic you

cannot see that with the human eye and

yet The Messenger of Allah said that

Allah is the one who cut the ears and

cut the eyes and this is the beginning

of differentiation this is the most so

well he's the one you so would oh he's

you so little method or ham he is

fashioning what is in the wombs with

perfection and this is a divine name so

these attributes heart if a body more so

well these are differences now if you

look at it I'm just using a metaphor

this is a metaphor so don't don't don't

confuse this with anything other than a

metaphor if you look at light light is

white white they call it white light

white light does not have a color now

what happens is when you get a prism a

prism is a medium of glass and when the

light hits the glass it refracts it

bends there's a bending of the light and

what happens is suddenly the color

spectrum shows up you see a whole

spectrum of colors from violet to red

and everything in between

now what happens in the creation you

have Allah Subhan Allah to Ana's light

he is maneuver Oh somehow that you are

on a long noodle similar to what our but

when his the light of Allah hits his

creation the divine attributes refract

in creation so you get all of these

different manifestations of Allah

subhanAllah Taylor's essence that are

manifesting in his creation

so you see for instance in one instant

Allah is Kareem in another instant he's

Jabbar in another instance he's got him

in another instance he's Aziz in another

instance he's moving in another instance

he more is and only Allah can know all

of them at once you can only know an

attribute because you're seeing a

refraction of the divine of his essence

there and this is not you know don't

mistake this with like inner penetration

of the divine no we are not Hindus we

don't we don't we don't associate

creation without lost behind without and

we believe that there's a there are a

fad of Allah that are created even

though we believe in that the the

essence and the attributes and the

actions of Allah are one we believe that

the third of Allah this is a federal of

Allah all of this but this fit is much

loop it's not a lot and we don't

associate anything with creation with

Allah neither a prophet nor a saint nor

anything and and and and this is

something Islam as is protected from so

don't misunderstand this it has nothing

to do with pantheism or hulu but the the

the world becomes a theater for divine

manifestation of these attributes and

this is how we come to know Allah let's

have a Kuruvilla what I can tell vector

who fear helping laughs don't think

about Allah because like Satan abu bakr

said and at an iraqi he is aku

whoa well hold off we couldn't Hill in a

Scirocco to think about the essence of

allah is shirk its shirk and an agile an

Iraqi intricate the inability to know

Allah is knowledge of Allah which is why

the essential act of worship in Islam is

putting your intellect on the ground and

surrendering the capacity of the

intellect to know Allah but we can know

a lot through the attributes of the

creation rain is a manifestation of

rukmi but it can also be a manifestation

of a dab Allah can manifest rahman in

rain aura can manifest Adam you can look

for instance Imam Abu Zeid he says in

the book the evil will carry mortadella

this man won't talk to me when the

generous one

manifests as the Avenger moon tucked

them is the name of Allah it's when

Allah takes people to account he takes

people to it

but he's still Kareem only his

manifesting as the Avenger because

sometimes that's what the Kareem does

the the curry Malcomb can sometimes do

things that people don't usually

associate with kerim but it's an

attribute that's manifesting and this is

what Allah does what happened in Turkey

is an example of that you see really

what happened in Turkey is an example of

that alliance Kareem be remote monena

Rahim cannon ependymoma Nina

Rehema he's merciful with the believers

The Messenger of Allah surgery da da da

Booma TV Junior ha and he said let me

only almighty I'd evansville Akira we're

in the majority either poha duniya

szelezon will fit in well benaiah well

Cutten allah places the punishment of

this ummah in this world with

earthquakes and tribulations and killing

and and sedition these are ways in which

Allah purified us and we believe this so

what happens to people in these type of

situation we have to see who is

manifesting Allah is manifesting himself

to us and we have to learn to recognize

the names of Allah in his creation and

when you begin to do this then you have

to heed and you begin to see all muscle

behind Allah Tala is revealing himself

to you through these divine attributes

and this is one of the secrets of

learning the names is if you became to

see if a lot of basis you it is Allah

who obeys to you Allah is moving

Allah is moving he is the obey sir you

didn't do many Ishod he abases whom he

pleases so we have to recognize that

allies doing that the the fact that the

Muslims now are based in the earth I

wasn't discarding that but the fact that

that Muslims now are based in the earth

is because Asia comes with little and

Hawaiian to allow when we humble

ourselves before Allah Allah subhana WA

Ta'ala gives us essa and now just

because the time's up I just wanted to

say a few things be very careful with

the names of Allah in other words call

on Allah and call on his name and do it

with sincerity but when you call on the

names know that the names have

tributes you should know the attributes

you're calling on you don't want to call

on al-habib one of the shook once told

me because you could think that who

wants to call on the pub it means the

contractor or the constrictor and yet

one of the shield from Yemen a very

blessed man who died a few years back at

him o Allah said to me that he was once

in the harem and this man was well over

sixty and it was on Juwanna and there

were you know if you're in the harem in

Mecca on Juma he was inside the inner

circle and and suddenly he had a very

strong urge to go to the bathroom and he

was in the harem and he was an old man

and he said Kunta AHA one of Benassi I

thought I was going to - really

denigrate myself degrade myself because

he thought that he couldn't control his

bodily function and then Allah inspired

him to say yeah I'll be low yeah I'll be

able yeah Kabul and he began to call on

this name and that it completely got

removed from him and he was able to sit

through the Joomla without having any

urge so here's an example of somebody

who knows the names and when to use them

the name that we should be calling on

now is yalla thief the thief is the one

who gives you every good and protects

you from every evil and this is what the

Muslims need

yeah a thief from very bad he he ya

Latif ya Latif ya Latif Allah not even

ready unfamiliar Sherwood Khalil Aziz

he's going he can harm you and he's Aziz

so Colin allah fear allah out of

banoffee majority him a katyayana people


I'll not be generous gentle with us in

what you have decreed for us so this is

one of the divine names you should call

on every day jana the-- yatta thief ask

Allah subhana WA Ta'ala for his look and

and even though she have massamba with

all respect about the the numbers

generally this call is good to call a

hundred times 100 is a good number but

66 is a good number also and many of the

scholars have mentioned this it's the

number sixty six is a good number and

it's a shortened version if you want to

call on the name

100 or sixty six time and these things

should understand that these are

mentioned many of our scholars have

mentioned them although there's no doubt

that the Jezza monly comes with the deal

when you have an absolute video from the

messenger Allah

that's when Justin comes and but you can

see a legend Anya and others Imam as

Union Chris Rafa mentions the recitation

of you has seen 40 times for cabal

Hawaii and says that many of the ulama

have have encouraged this and said that

it's majora that this is something

experiential and people should be aware

we know we don't want to go into Vida

and innovation and that comes with their

it's a pod you have to be aware and

recognize that because it becomes

dangerous you make an innovation in the

Deen and we don't want to be people of

innovation now

just in closing a few names that people

don't understand one of them is a Saddam

Saddam does not mean peace Allah is not

called the peace Allah is not the peace

Saddam is the one free of blemishes or

false it's an attribute of Allah the one

who has no false moomin Moltmann does

not mean believer Allah is not the

believer Allah doesn't have Eman

Moltmann means the one who secures

people or makes them safe he gives them

Eman right a lawsuit behind oh it's on

and there are many other names like that

that you have to be aware that they

don't share that the more common

linguistic understanding sabor allah

subhanho wa taala sabor being the idea

of being patient Allah subhana WA Ta'ala

Shakur you have to understand the subtle

meanings here because you'll get into

anthropomorphism and think that allah

subhana wa ta'ala is like his creation

while a second visit ishe on a lot

nothing is like a lot let me put the

hook of one ahead and so learning the

names of Allah is a gift

and I'd like Imam Schiff Mazama sue dfa

havedo Allah mentioned about imam

al-ghazali's book it's been translated

into arab into english a beautiful

translation done very well and and

really that book is a precious book and

you should read it

the insights that the Imam was given

about the divine names are extraordinary

and there

this is an endless topic like imam zaman

mentioned and really we've all we

haven't even scratched the surface here

but inshallah la jolla Tata give us

tophi up and and put these names in our

hearts when we call on the name the

Arabs they say an ism move Thomas EMA

the name is the key to the one name and

one of the gifts of this oma is if we

were given the name of our law we were

given the Jews can't say Allah they

can't say it they can't they can't even

write the tetragram they can't write the

name of God they can't say it on their

tongues the holiest of Holies Allah has

given us the name and if you notice like

respected people they don't tell their

first name usually those that when they

introduce himself they'll just say I'm

dr. Johnson or I'm professor Hendrickson

or something and you don't say what's

your first name because you respect him

and if you respect somebody you don't

call them by their first name you see

unless you become intimate with them and

then they'll let you know call me John

you see what they're telling you is I

want to be intimate with you they're

removing formality and this is what

Allah has done with this Ummah he has

removed formality and he has given us

His divine name to call on him as an

intimate friend Ally is our friend

really Allah is our friend we want to be

a Hilda analyzed and WA dude the one who

loves without any reasons no ulterior

motives like a beautiful woman who loves

her husband without any motives is


an wa dude as the name of a woman who

loves her husband and the Messenger of

Allah said Mary Allah dude because

that's a beautiful a truth and the

secret of marriage is that Allah made


and rukmi mulatto is not Rama what dude

is not Rahman and Rahim are those who

show mercy because people need mercy

what dude shows love and compassion not

out of

but out of desire a poodle cotija that

was for the lodges that come about

Herron and and and thank you all of you

for supporting Imam Suraj and I'm sure

they raised the whole five million

dollars and if they didn't then you'll

find out and and you'll have to do it


all right shout low but we should really

do that and and also I think that the

people here for giving us opportunity

also especially for giving the

opportunity to Imams aide who we have

great hopes and expectations for his

scholarship and the dignity that he he

has come into Islam with and the

humility that he has shown at I won't

mention his age but at his age to go and

study at the hands of hue

even though he was already a professor

at the University and and this is one of

the secrets of knowledge is it's not

given to arrogant people it's not given

to arrogant people and so humble

yourselves before our line is messenger

and before the Deen of Allah and sit

with the people of knowledge to gain

benefit from them and we have many young

people that will be you'll be hearing

their name soon enough people like jihad

cotton and people like Muhammad Abdul

Rahman Dez and and and yeah yeah and and

and others that are that have gone now

and they're really studying seriously

and these youth are going to I think

inshallah make a great impact on this

country America is is finished as a

country this is a post-christian country

and its infrastructure is showing signs

of great stress and the only thing that

can reinvigorate these people is Islam I

believe that with firm conviction and we

should take this message out to the

people be people of Dawa invite people

to the deen of islam many of these

people are looking for the for the deen

of islam and my brother who was here

last night who's who lives in Chicago

who's not a Muslim and he's a young man

and he's

he's a very intelligent person and he

told me hearing use of Islam and Imams

II last night he said he's been hearing

me for the last 35 years it's not much

new but hearing he said he realized the

power of the message of Islam and he

said that this he said why aren't you

getting this out to the American people

he said what there's a book he's a

lawyer and there's a book called should

trees have standing which is should

trees have legal rights and when imam

zain mentioned last night about trees

having rights in Islam they are debating

this question now we resolved this

question centuries ago trees indeed have

rights rivers have rights land has right

these are things we should take to the

environmental movement and and really

take this Deen out to the people so it's

time for us to stop being a insular

community as a community that has been

provincial and distant self and really

engaged these people in debate for the

sake of allah subhana wa ta'ala with

with love and mercy and compassion

Kulik ha dejado which is a common law

Hannah will sit on it
