Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh made peace and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala be upon you all. We have reached Jews number 22, the 22nd portion of the Quran and I want to cover three verses that is in the chapter of felted verse number 1516 and 17 and these verses are pertaining to the greatness of your maker is pertaining to the qualities that he possesses particularly the quality of self sufficiency. Now, those of us that believe in a deity we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Creator of the heavens and the earth is not in need of any one or anything. As a matter of fact, he created us to ensure that when we come closer to our purpose in life, is to express that

00:00:51--> 00:01:02

need and Eleni and Hamid, it's to express that need in the self sufficient, the one that is praiseworthy, Allah subhana wa, Allah says in verse number 15, in the chapter falsehoods

00:01:03--> 00:01:50

that are the blemish upon our genes, yeah, yohannes unto mufa para Illa Allah He will la honey Yun, Hamid Allah, Allah says, O mankind, all of you are impoverished to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah is the self sufficient, the Praiseworthy, when we look at this, and we see that Allah subhanho wa Taala, mentioning a reality of us as human beings, that unto muh*a, in Allah that you are impoverished to Allah, meaning that you will always be in need of your maker, whether you know it, acknowledge it, accept it attempted or not, that you will always be in need of your maker, you will always be a need of the one that has control over you. Whether you accept and realize that he has

00:01:50--> 00:02:36

ultimate control over you. One of the ways to realize that he has ultimate control over you is that you don't have ultimate control over yourself, ultimate control over yourself, just think about it. What are certain things in your body that you wish you could alter you wish you could take away you wish you could take back you wish you could refine you wish you could replenish within yourself physically, mentally, and most important spiritually, Allah Subhana without as an ultimate control, there is a small window of responsibility that you have. And that's the effort that you have to make. But in totality, in reality, ultimately you are faqeer and faqeer means poor, it means that

00:02:36--> 00:03:20

the poor person is in need of something to enrich them, to enrich them. In that with our soul is what we need. Allah subhana wa tada we need our maker ultimately. And that's why one becomes spiritual, that the term that they like to use, but particularly that spirituality is actualized by turning to the Deity, first knowing who he is, and then turning to him voluntarily. And that's why I lost it kinda without a conclusion says, well, Allahu Allah Yun hemming Ella honey is the self sufficient, the one that is replenished and doesn't need replenishing the one that suffices internally intrinsically by himself and doesn't need any external object or thing or anything in

00:03:20--> 00:04:07

existence, to make him full or whole. everything other than Him, needs something outside of its physical self in order to be replenished, except Allah subhanho wa Taala. And with that reality of self sufficiently self sufficiency, he deserves praise, therefore, he is a Hamid. So the fact that you as a form of creation, a human being, that has the faculty of choice, you are always in need of the one who is self sufficient. And because of that self sufficient, he's praiseworthy, he deserves all praise. This is why we say al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen the next time he said, How do you think of the fact that you're in need of Allah, think of the fact that you're in need of your maker

00:04:07--> 00:04:53

to make things easy for you? Then Allah subhana wa, Allah says in the next verse, as you typical, we get to be hulking God. If he wills he could obliterate all of you from this existence, and come with a new form of creation or come with a new group of people or come with a new person or whatever the case may be. He has total authority, because he has a heart of He is the Creator as well. So if he wills he could do this easily. And we see how this is manifest. We see that with the Coronavirus there's many different ways that Allah subhanho wa Taala can choose to take the life of someone or take someone out of their existence. And then a lot could close by saying well Matt data catalog you

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

guys do not think that this process of taking away a nation of people

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

As he has done with the people of you know Sodom and Gomorrah, who has he has done with many of the people of the prophets of their nations do not think that this is something that is difficult or something that is bearing on Allah subhanho wa Taala the reality of things being difficult, the reality of making an effort and when you exert power and all of this physics and science are things that will result in when power is generated, that may cause a form of exhaustion. This reality is not even within Allah soprano, dahlias reality, because Allah created all have this reality. Therefore, when realizing the reality of self sufficiency in in and of themselves, everything that

00:05:45--> 00:05:50

comes after is an explanation, being that he can take you away just as he has brought you here.

00:05:51--> 00:06:35

And with that being a reality, we know that it is not difficult for Allah. It is not any type of stress for Allah subhanho wa Taala. It conclusion seeing these beautiful verses, it allows us to realize the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the perfection of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the perfection of what he brings being this *tier being the law abiding system of Islam, that he has brought for us in order to make in order to make us the best version of ourselves. So realizing the greatness self sufficiency of Allah subhanho wa Taala should increase us in our praise of Him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us have the fukada makers of those that increase our need to him and

00:06:35--> 00:06:43

actualize that within our speech, our actions and most importantly within our hearts. So now mighty Kumar happen to live with a cat. Thank you
