Bismillah he will hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah who Allah Allah, he was Safi Madain Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
Inshallah, continuing with our series titled illuminated where we look at many of the verses in the Quran in which Allah subhanaw taala mentions the concept of a new light in illumination.
Today we're going to be looking at surah number 33 Surah Zab is number 43.
In this particular idea, there's very fascinating concept that is mentioned in the beginning of the iron
or read the I'll share the translation and then we'll discuss exactly what it what we can derive from this. Allah subhanaw taala says, who led us Sunday aleikum wa Mala Iike to who? lucre Jakob Amina valo. Mattila noon, will cannibal me Nina Rahima.
It is he who blesses you, as do His angels, in order to lead you out of the depths of darkness and into the light. He is Ever Merciful towards the believers. There are a few very important
elements to this particular idea. First and foremost, Allah subhanaw taala says who Allah the US Sunday Alikum He Allah is the One who blesses you. And the word for blessing that we are typically used to is, Rama means mercy. Baraka means blessing, but this comes from the word salah, which is a special type of blessing and mercy. And what does that exactly mean? What is this special mercy that Allah bestows upon us? What is this talking about?
there's a number of different explanations and elaborations upon this. One of the things that is mentioned by Imam Bukhari Rama Allahu taala, when he comments on this idea, he says that what this refers to is
what Salah to mean Allah Ethan, who Allah Abdi endl, Mala Iike,
as a Hadith of the Prophet sallahu Surah mentions with ACARA whom Allah Who FEMA and ainda and what that means what that translates to is, there are narrations that mentioned the fact that Allah subhanaw taala mentions his devout servants in front of the angels, that when a slave of Allah when a servant of Allah makes makes the right choice, no matter how difficult it is, when the slave of Allah, sacrifices, whatever other preoccupation they have, and goes to the masjid to the house of Allah.
When the slave of Allah subhanaw taala, stands up in the night, leaves their bed and worships Allah.
That the Hadith mentions vichara whom Allah Who FEMA and ainda yes Kuru whom Allah Who fee Mala in the Kira mineral that Allah mentions those people by name in front of the angels,
that look at this fool and look at Abdullah, the slave of mine, look at a man this slave of mine,
that he had all these other things pulling him in all these different directions. But yet he left everything and came to the masjid. Look at Medina.
Look at look at Khadija look at Fatima
that they had all these other things going on.
Or they're tired and they need their rest or whatever the case may be. But they are sacrificing all of that for my pleasure. And so Allah subhanaw taala in a way to use a word that so that we can understand even though Allah is above and beyond such ideas, but Allah basically boasts and brags about the servants in front of the angels. And actually the Hadith uses the word bragging you baggy
Be human melodica. Allah brags to the angels about them, he boasts to the angels about them.
That you owe angels as the Quran tells us we have Aluna my maroon, the angels simply do what they are told.
They have no element of desire. They have no element of any kind of personal, like lust or longing for anything. Well, whom like just a moon, they are pure creatures of obedience. They only do that what they are told. So Allah tells the angels, you have nothing else to do. So of course, you worship Me, you have nowhere else to go. So of course you remember me.
You have no desire within you. So of course you obey me.
But these human beings, they're being pulled in 100 different directions. They have lust and temptation and desire.
And yet, they are willing to and they are capable of sacrificing all of that and devoting themselves solely and only to me.
So that's when meaning of Allah bestowing his special mercy upon His servants that Allah boast and brag to the angels look at these remarkable slaves have been
another meaning of this. That is really
powerful and remarkable is
I've delivered delivering our bus ride the Allahu Taala anima. He mentioned this,
that there's a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which talks about when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he went on the journey of Illustra will Mirage when he traveled by night, from Makkah to Jerusalem, and may Allah subhanaw taala provide peace and tranquility there.
But when the prophets are some traveled by night from Mecca to Jerusalem from Missoula, haram to Al Masjid in Arkansas, and from there he ascended beyond the heavens and went were no creation of Allah has ever been before. He achieved nearness and closest to Allah, unlike what any other creation has ever experienced. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that there it was written on the outer shell of Allah, on the throne of God, it was inscribed in the raw material, but rather be
that my mercy supersedes my anger, my mercy dominates and overcomes my wrath. And this is a special gift from Allah subhanaw taala that Allah subhanaw taala bestows upon His servants. And so they mentioned that when Allah says he sends his special mercy upon His servants. What that means is, Allah makes the declaration
that Allah's wrath is very severe in Allah Harsha de dinero, a cop, but then Allah proclaims, but my mercy of overcomes supersedes and dominates my wrath and my anger. And so the servants of mine will always enjoy my blessing and my mercy and my forgiveness.
The next thing Allah mentions in this idea is that
while melodica, to who the angels make dua for the servants of God,
those slaves of Allah who devote themselves who worship Allah who make time for Allah, the angels make dua for them. And this is something that's mentioned in the Quran. In surah, drophead, Allah subhanaw taala mentions is Alladhina Yama, Luna Allah Arusha woman Hala who, the angels that are carrying the Throne of Allah and the angels that are surrounding Allah. You saw behind the behind the rock by him, were known to be He, they constantly are praising and glorifying Allah. And they believe in Allah, way a Sufi guna Linda Lena Ave
and they are constantly seeking forgiveness for the believers. They are constantly making dua, or Allah forgive the believers and they make the special dua Robina our Lord was here to Kula che Ramadan where Allah O Allah, your mercy and your knowledge is greater than everything. Fulfill Nila Dena taboo, whatever Oh Sabine laka. So forgive those servants of yours who repent to you. And they strive they're trying hard to follow your path to follow the correct path. Forgive them. They're trying hard, but they keep on stumbling. They keep on going off the path and they ask you for forgiveness every time they stray from the path. So ALLAH forgive them. Lucky him I double Jehane
and Allah protect them from the punishment of the Hellfire.
robbing our the hill whom Janet and Allah enter them into the gardens of Paradise, the eternal either the eternal gardens of Paradise allottee, where I tell him that you had promised them, that if they would do good, you would reward them with paradise. Woman Salah Herman about him, was watching him was the reality him and this is the Mercy of Allah, that someone will go to paradise.
And his family will not be there with him.
The family of that person will not be there with them.
And that person will say, Oh Allah.
I sacrificed. I tried hard, I wasn't perfect, but I did my best and I made sacrifices in the world to please you.
But I'm sad that I don't have my family with me.
And Allah subhanaw taala a special favor, once again see his special mercy, where his mercy overcomes his anger and his wrath, that Allah will say to reward you, to appreciate you. I will forgive your family members and I will bring them to paradise to be with you.
And Allah will reunite this family in paradise in nicot, until Aziz Allah King because of Allah you and only you are dominant, mighty, you can do whatever you want, and Al Hakim and you are most wise we trust your judgment, oh Allah.
So the angels are making to offer them.
And then Allah says Lucretia Kamina. Follow Mattila. No, this is how Allah is bringing you extracting you from the darkness and bringing you into the light. By forgiving your sins by showering you with His mercy, by giving you chance after chance after chance, opportunity after opportunity.
The countless angels were my Allenwood you know the Rebecca Illa who only Allah knows how many angels there are. There's a hadith authentic narration when the process when we now know the struggle, Mirage, he saw that there's like a GABA in the heavens for the angels. The Quran talks about it's called elevated Mahmoud
that the prophets Allah He said them said Ibrahim Ali Salam told them that 70,000 Angels make the wealth of elevated Mahmoud every single day.
And once an angel has had their turn to make the wealth, they will never get the opportunity to do the author ever again.
So every day since the beginning of when Allah created the angels
70,000 New angels make the author everything. Imagine how many angels
and Allah says that the scores of angels are making to offer you, you have so much going for you.
You just have to allow yourself to be led from the darkness and be brought into the light.
And then Allah subhanaw taala says, well cannibal me Nina Rahima. And Allah has always been
extremely merciful, constantly merciful. To the believers.
Were the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam.
When commenting on this,
the prophets a lot, he said, um, there's two narrations that are really remarkable.
There's one narration that is mentioned in the bio Imam Bukhari Rahim Allahu Taala
that are unbeatable Cadabra the Allahu Taala Anhu
he says that the prophets Allah Nizam saw
that there was a woman
and she was holding and clutching her baby
to her chest
and just seemed very concerned about her baby and very protective over her baby and was clutching the baby to her chest and would not let the baby go.
And the Prophet saw some looked at this. And then he told the Sahaba at around a hottie he told the one of the half enough where he attacked me to Allah.
Can you ever imagine that this mother would toss her baby into a fire?
Like Does that even make sense to you? Can you fathom a scenario where she would do that? And he said lie rasool Allah,
Tala never the prophets, Allah, He said, For what for Wallahi Lulla who are humblebee are about the human Halle, Hebrew well,
that I swear to God, Allah loves his servants more than this mother loves her baby.
And so, that is the mercy that Allah subhanaw taala has upon us. And so what we have to realize
Number is that that is the dynamic that is the relationship that we have with Allah.
Yes, we have to try. We have to make an effort we have to be sincere. We have to try to be as developed as possible. But understanding the fact that we are going to make mistakes
and at that point in time, we need to not be afraid or not be embarrassed or not be shy to turn to Allah for his forgiveness, to turn to Allah for His mercy, never despair, never sell ourselves short.
Because the rob the creator that we are dealing with, this is how merciful he is. And he is guaranteed and promised us His mercy and His forgiveness. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us all the ability to practice everything that's been said and heard Subhanallah he will be handy he Subhana Allah whom will be humble, Nash, Allah ilaha illa Anta the Saphira Governor Toby Lake
