smilla hamdulillah salatu salam ala rasulillah at hamdulillah Hamdan

00:00:17--> 00:00:44

azita Allahu Allah, Mohammed. He was marrying a law firm Alabama and federal now and found out via LinkedIn or was it an argument? Yeah, Kareem Bob Bashara. He saw that he was at Emory and Melissa Hokulea Welcome to your viewers to the 99 Names of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The Nine Names of Allah subhana wa tada are those names that Allah subhanho wa Taala shared with us in the book of Allah Subhana Allah and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:00:45--> 00:00:51

And they have also been shared but also a lot gathered in one specific soft spot in one specific Hadith.

00:00:52--> 00:01:36

And in general, these names can be found in different places in the Quran and the Sunnah, and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us in a hadith that Allah subhana wa tada has 99 names in the law, he decided with this reinvestment when I saw her the whole agenda. Allah has 99 names whoever is able to gather all of these Beautiful Names of Allah subhana wa Tada, then this person ends up entering into gender. So these names which we find within the Quran, within the Sunnah. And with this dispersed all across our tradition, these names if a person was to ponder them, understand them, a person wants to live by these names, a laws messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he had

00:01:36--> 00:02:19

promised such person to enter into Jenna, how beautiful is this reward of a person who simply learns these names, and then implements these names within his or her life, I asked him lots of what data to give us the best of these names. I mean, you're behind me, you see my brother, my sister. The thing about these names is that names in the Arabic tradition, and in many other cultures as well, if they have a multiplicity of themselves, there's multiple names to one object, you have a number of names for one thing, they show how keen that tradition or that group of people are, upon this particular object, because they've given it so many names, right? Every time they, you know, think

00:02:19--> 00:02:56

about the object and think about one trait of it, another one, a third one, a fourth one, they give it a different title, a different object, have a different name, and so on and so forth. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has these 99 names. And the scholars they said, if you look at the Hadith carefully, it doesn't mean he only has 99 names. In fact, the names are even beyond the 99. But the 99 ones, these ones if a person was to memorize them, understand them, inculcate them within his life, then that would allow the person to enter into Jana, I asked Allah subhana wa tada to bring us intergender How do we treat these names? And what do we do with these names? The way to treat these

00:02:56--> 00:03:36

names first and foremost, my dear brother, my dear sister is to look at these names and try to observe them internally through the external world. So when you look at the fact that Allah subhana wa tada is the creator and the only creator you think about yourself and your creation and as Allah subhana wa tada says, Wolfie and footsy como, they don't, and look at the signs within yourself, do not ponder. So you look at yourself, your own existence, your own, your own being, and you ponder yourself in order for you to do more Shahada in order for you to come to a recognition of a loss of parallel with Diana's lordship, and the fact that he in fact, is the creator, after a person has

00:03:37--> 00:04:16

understood this name through his internal existence through external experience. After that understanding has come now constantly recurrently doing this and not dwelling on other things. dwelling on the loss of handle without a first and foremost, after a person continues to do that he will gain and understand and recognize and comprehend the magnitude and the beauty of these names. When you constantly dwell on something, one time after another after another after another things open up for you in terms of the meanings of this. And there's experiences that you start to feel that you wouldn't have felt if you just listen to something one time or if you just read something

00:04:16--> 00:04:57

one time, or have you observed a reality, just one time. So what's expected of us is to look at the name of a loss of data and observe it again and again and again, until this name becomes part and parcel of our existence. And then we come to a third, third part. And that's the third step to becoming, becoming a person that understands these names. Becoming a person who falls within this tradition was encompassed and nobody can encompass the meanings of the name of a love it at least try to understand and inculcate these names within his life. The third step, my dear brother, my dear sister is for you to take these names and apply them within your life. Believe it or not, the

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

names of Allah subhanaw taala most

00:05:00--> 00:05:23

Which are attributes of Allah subhana wa tada most of which are names which from which an attribute can be driven of Allah subhana wa Tada. So these names of Allah subhana wa dialler have attributes which we are expected to apply in one way or another within our lives as well. I asked Allah subhana wa tada to help us understand these three steps and help us practice this within our lives just below heading for this thing. Awesome.
