In Alhamdulilah, hanaa hermeto who want to start you know who want to start futile when I owe the villa Himanshu Rory and fusina will see Dr. Medina Mija the healer who fell on welding Lola Will my youth lil fella howdy Allah, wa shadow Allah Allah illallah wa hola Sheree Kayla. Why no Mohammed Abu or a pseudo sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam

00:00:55--> 00:01:39

we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala and we thank him and we seek His help and support and forgiveness. And we asked him to protect us from the evil of ourselves in the sense that we do, indeed who serve Allah guides, no one can lead astray and whosoever Allah leads astray, no one can guide I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah alone. And then Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his slave and messenger. The best of speech is the book of Allah. And the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the words of religious matters are those that are innovated, and every religious innovation is a bit and every bit is

00:01:39--> 00:01:44

misguidance. And every misguidance will be in Hellfire and bad.

00:01:47--> 00:01:49

It is, undoubtedly.

00:01:52--> 00:01:56

And clear in the mind and Muslim

00:01:58--> 00:02:05

that the best of their deeds are the things that bring them closer to Allah azza wa jal.

00:02:07--> 00:02:08

And among those deeds

00:02:09--> 00:02:16

that bring closer to Allah is the remembrance of Allah, the Quran, Allah has the origin

00:02:18--> 00:02:49

and this is exactly what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Hadith, Allah aamby you can be highly americom Shall I not tell you about the best of your deeds was caha in the Maliki comb, and the one that would be most bountiful and purest with your king, Allah azza wa jal waterfire literati comb and the one that will elevate you the most. Well highroller come minion fatigue the habitual warrior and it is better than spending gold and silver.

00:02:50--> 00:03:01

Will highroller come in and tell Fatah rivanna como una accomodates is better than you would then meeting your enemy. And either they killing you are you killing them?

00:03:03--> 00:03:06

The crolla the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal.

00:03:07--> 00:03:51

And while the new Jebel says about this, he says, lay salmon, emmalin and German either below him in the killer, there is no deed that saves from the punishment of Allah, more than the remembrance of Allah. So this hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam says, shall I not tell you about the greatest of your deeds? And he says, It is better than this. And it's better than that it's better than spending golden silver. And it's better than Jihad for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, and it doesn't mean that if you simply engage in the remembrance of Allah, you need not do anything else doesn't mean that. But it means that the vicar of Allah is the fuel for everything else. And it's

00:03:51--> 00:04:01

the essence of everything else. And when you do remember Allah, you'll be able to do the rest and the rest without the remembrance of Allah is spiritless.

00:04:03--> 00:04:17

So why is it better because you can do it all the time, you may not be able to spend all the time, there is no Jihad all the time. There is no Salah all the time, but the remembrance of Allah is all the time it does not stop.

00:04:20--> 00:04:26

So that is the best of deed. And it should be clear that no one knows a lot more than Allah.

00:04:27--> 00:04:59

And no one knows what Allah loves more than Allah. And he did not communicate this to anyone except to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So if someone so recommends ethic, and so and so recommends a repetition of ethic, what Allah loves has already been communicated to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, no one can add to it, nor should they subtract from it. So today I want to talk to you about one of the liquor of Allah zildjian which is La hawla wala quwata illa Billah

00:05:02--> 00:05:06

This statement, which will inshallah explain.

00:05:07--> 00:05:51

Part of its virtue is that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once the Sahaba were making to our making Kabir and they were loud and he said sallallahu alayhi wasallam to them or to be our Allah and footsy can be gentle with that remembrance Fein acuminata una casa Manuela, you're not calling upon someone who is deaf or absent. Allah azza wa jal when you call upon him, you don't need to scream, he hears you. And then Abu Salah shot he says I was saying privately La Jolla, La quwata illa Billah and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to me and he said, say that how La quwata illa Billah it is kenjon mkuze in general, it is a treasure from the treasures of paradise. In another

00:05:51--> 00:06:24

Hadith, it says can zoom into a treasure from underneath the throne of Allah azza wa jal What does it mean that it is a treasure from the treasures of Allah azza wa jal, it means that the one who would engage in this Vicar in this remembrance had make it a habit of his it's as if he had seized a treasure in general, the reward that he will get is a treasure in general that is hidden, that he will see on the Day of Judgment, in addition to the benefits that he or she will get in this life.

00:06:25--> 00:06:57

But a treasure is something that is buried, but you don't need to go to collect it. It's not scattered, it is in one place, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is gifting this to every single Muslim who's willing to listen. Similar to someone who's telling you you want a good tip on an investment. You want to know what stocks to buy or stocks to sell. You want to know what is the most most lucrative of careers Do you want to know? I'm telling you here Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying Jenna has treasures.

00:06:58--> 00:07:03

He says this is one of them. If you seize upon it, you'll be rich on the Day of Judgment.

00:07:05--> 00:07:12

In another Hadith, it says means Eros agenda, it is what will plant and cultivate Jenna for you and me.

00:07:15--> 00:07:18

It is La hawla wala quwata illa villa.

00:07:19--> 00:07:25

What is that word means and once we understand the meaning will appreciate why it is so special.

00:07:26--> 00:07:42

Part of its virtue is that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam also said the one who says sapan Allah Al hamdu lillahi wa la ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar Allah, Allah Wa La quwata illa Billah all their previous sins will be forgiven.

00:07:44--> 00:08:33

But of course, for the courage to matter, for it to have power, power to eliminate sin but also power to reconnect us with Allah we must understand what it means. So that the heart and the tongue both are in harmony when they remember Allah azza wa jal that's when vichar is strong. What does it mean that hola La quwata illa Billah it means that hola I cannot transition from one state to another from one condition to another except with Allah, La quwata illa Billah means I have no power. Allah has all the power. So I cannot move from one state to another from one thing to another, except by and with Allah, I have no power to do anything, except by Allah Han with Allah

00:08:33--> 00:08:35

subhanho wa Taala. And it doesn't mean

00:08:36--> 00:08:45

as a precaution to guard against misunderstanding, it does not mean that if I believe this, then I will sit idle and do nothing.

00:08:46--> 00:08:52

And just ask Allah, and Allah will just give me without an effort on my part, this is not true.

00:08:53--> 00:09:01

It means that you your effort, your will has an impact. But on its own, it's useless.

00:09:02--> 00:09:48

on its own, you want to do something but without a loss assistance. It never happens. Even if you ask all your family members and acquaintances and friends and people in your city, and everyone on the face of this earth to assist you. And yet Allah says no, it doesn't happen. But we also know that cure is not going to come your way. If you sit home and you don't seek medicine or a doctor, you're not going to earn a living if you don't seek a job. If you don't work if you're an important effort, you're not gonna get most things in this life. So we know this. So the how La La quwata illa Billah is not there to negate our will and our effort, but to admit and submit that on their own,

00:09:49--> 00:09:54

they cannot have a impact. But it is a law as origin.

00:09:55--> 00:10:00

who helps. I cannot transition from one state to another from one person

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

In addition to another,

00:10:02--> 00:10:16

some have said, I cannot bring to myself what I love, or escape what I hate, except if Allah allows it. And not all of us find ourselves in that state.

00:10:17--> 00:10:20

There are things that we love, but we cannot attain

00:10:21--> 00:10:31

the things that we hate. We're living through at this moment we can't run away from we can't escape. There is no exit. That's what it seems.

00:10:32--> 00:10:49

And I must understand that without a loss of assistance, actually, there is no help. And there is no movement. So when I'm conflict, thinking about my life and contemplating where it is, and where I want to go, what I want to get, I want to get married.

00:10:50--> 00:11:12

I want a good job. I want to raise my children well, or I simply feel stuck. Whether it's as a bad marriage, or I have about this or about that, whatever it is, or I'm trying to earn a living and it's difficult. I want to transition I want to move from one state to another. How do I move? How do I escape? The hola La quwata illa Villa?

00:11:14--> 00:11:25

Because there you admit, yes, yeah, Allah, I'm gonna try my best but on my own, I cannot. And I realized that all power is from you. Not with me.

00:11:26--> 00:11:35

La quwata illa Billah I have no power, all power is from you. No other human being can help me and direct me and guide me.

00:11:36--> 00:11:49

Even when I might find myself weak. Sometimes. I know what's right and what's wrong. There's sin. I'm engaged in it. I'm drowning in it. I want to escape it. I know it's wrong.

00:11:51--> 00:11:54

But I don't have the energy. I don't have the power.

00:11:56--> 00:11:58

How do I start?

00:11:59--> 00:12:06

It is with La hawla wala quwata illa Billah. Sometimes, you know right from wrong, but the will to leave what's wrong is not there.

00:12:08--> 00:12:17

Even the will itself is not there because I'm in love with that sin. How do I leave it? Now Hola, La quwata illa Billah meaning Allah here

00:12:18--> 00:12:31

on this earth, I realize I cannot attain anything, unless you say so unless you assist me. So to hold our La quwata illa. billah is about eliciting and asking assistance from Allah has his origin.

00:12:32--> 00:12:47

What is it that you want to do? What burden Do you want to carry? What are you afraid of? Some of us are afraid. Well, if I have children, well, if I lose my job, and the next five years and the next 10 years, what's going to happen to me?

00:12:49--> 00:13:00

How do you combat that? That worry with La hawla wala quwata illa Billah. Because you realize that on your own, you cannot carry anything.

00:13:01--> 00:13:04

But with a law. You can carry everything.

00:13:06--> 00:13:06

There's an author

00:13:08--> 00:13:11

and it does not need to be authentic, but the meaning

00:13:12--> 00:13:13

is interesting.

00:13:15--> 00:13:31

It is said that Allah azza wa jal had asked the angels of Allah is the one who will carry his throne, which is the biggest of illustration, the most magnificent, and the biggest of Allah's creation is his carry my throne, and they couldn't.

00:13:32--> 00:13:36

He said, sailor, Hola, La quwata illa Billah and they carried.

00:13:38--> 00:13:52

So whatever seems insurmountable, too big to overcome. When you say that how La quwata illa Billah then you know that who you have, right next to you.

00:13:53--> 00:14:29

It's not so and so and so on. It's Allah zoa Jin. And before Allah, there are no obstacles before Allah azza wa jal, there are no obstacles at all. All of them are eliminated. That is why it is said also in another method, which is so beautiful, he says, if you want to be the strongest person, have to work on Allah zoji. The strongest period have to work on Allah. Because when you trust Allah, you have him assisting you who can oppose him subhanho wa Taala. And it says, if you want to be the richest person,

00:14:30--> 00:14:59

trust what Allah has more than what you have in your own hands. So beautiful, but it takes a lot to practice this, the richest, how am I the richest when I believe this, because whatever you want, you know what is with allows origin and when you know that it is with Allah. Allah will give you what you need, and if Allah is the richest, and He will give you what you need, and he will never, ever deny you

00:15:00--> 00:15:23

Then you know that you are the richest. It is only when you start trusting your own things rather than Allah that you become poor. And when you rely on your own power and the people around you, not Allah that you become weak, and you will become old when you start being afraid of other people, rather than Allah azza wa jal that they have power over you, but if you fear Allah

00:15:25--> 00:16:01

and it's a path until we reach that destination, but if you fear Allah, everybody else will fear you, as Allah zildjian says in the Quran, and who cannot read yellowman and insia otonabee de la mina Jeannie faza de hombre haka. It says they were human men who sought the protection of Jin men, and they added to their trouble added to their harassment, because they thought somebody else other than Allah azza wa jal, but if you seek Allah, he'll take care of all of your needs or who normally had was tougher Allah honey will confess to you

00:16:19--> 00:16:29

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Hamden Kathy Rhonda, even O'Gara can see he will certainly will sell him on Allah Zhu Li Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam.

00:16:31--> 00:16:38

Some of the times or places that we are recommended to say that have a lower La quwata illa Villa

00:16:39--> 00:16:41

is when you exit and leave your home

00:16:43--> 00:16:54

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when you leave your house you say Bismillah our culture Allah Allah, Allah, Allah wa quwata illa Billah

00:16:57--> 00:17:42

you begin by saying Bismillah my exit, my destination is With the name of Allah azza wa jal you bring Allah Baraka putting Allah's name there, Allah's guidance, so a culture Allah Allah, I rely upon Allah. Meaning it's not my know how it's not my skills, it's not my power. I don't control what's going to happen. I don't know if I'm gonna reach my destination and accomplish what I wanted to do. I do not know that it's not in my hands. I have a plan, but it's not in my hands. So call to Allah. And he says, Hola, hola, La quwata illa Billah there is no power, it can move except with Allah azza wa jal, and he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that something happens at that time that

00:17:42--> 00:17:45

we do not see. But we believe in

00:17:46--> 00:17:54

Allah who it will be said to him who detail coffeetable will Pete you are guided you are sufficed, you're protected.

00:17:55--> 00:18:01

What's gonna happen who shall teen and then the child in the devil's will withdraw?

00:18:02--> 00:18:15

And it will be sad or one of them will say to another okay felica how what influence what power would you have upon someone who has been guided? Who has been sufficed and has been protected? When you leave the house?

00:18:17--> 00:18:28

That is there Allah azza wa jal wants to every time that you leave your home to remember that you are by Allah and for Allah and with Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when you leave,

00:18:29--> 00:19:05

to trust anybody except Allah azza wa jal and when you trust Allah, and you keep doing this, making this this is the core of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And again with the heart testifying to the reality that your tongue is watering, you will see that Allah will bless your exits and entries that protect you and the shaitaan will part ways with you so that whatever you are doing is blessed. Another time where it is recommended to say Hola Hola, quwata illa Billah is when you answer the more than when the more editing says hey Allah Sana

00:19:06--> 00:19:54

we don't repeat exactly what he says. When he says hi Yeah, lol fella. We don't say hey, lol fella. But we say Hola, La quwata illa Billah Why do we say La La La La quwata illa Allah, this is a call for a better come to the Salah come to the worship of Allah azza wa jal. And here you are seeking Allah as assistance. How many times we hear the call of the truth, whether it is or then whether it is or on whether it is sooner, but we don't have the motivation to respond. We don't go here. We sing here, Allah assist me. assist me. assist me to attend us, Allah assist me to pray as you want me to pray, assist me to be a person who worships you. It's not my own

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

and that treats self admiration.

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

Oh, you know how much I've memorized? You know how many how many soldiers I attend? You know, my efforts invested in Dawa and this and that. It is not by or my by your and or my effort. It's not

00:20:13--> 00:20:52

but it is a holdover La quwata illa. Villa, there is no Kippur anymore. I know you're Allah, I've done all of this because of you. And I can continue to do even more because of you so you never lose hope to you. And to me, when we look at ourselves, we know how weak we are. But when you look at Allah azza wa jal and what he can you know how strong you can be not because of you, but because of him. So you Allah, you know that I'm weak on my own, I can't leave this, or I cannot do that I cannot do this a bad, but I will start and I'll say the whole La quwata illa Billah. And then I can come to the salon, I can answer them and then

00:20:53--> 00:21:37

I can do the things that I want to do because I put my trust in you. And I've asked for your assistance. So every a bad could seem difficult. Every obedience of Allah azza wa jal could seem like something that we cannot do, but with La hawla wala quwata illa Billah we can do and then new Tamia Rahim Allah He says that it has a wonderous effect in carrying burdens that you are incapable of carrying, and facing difficulties and fear that you're incapable of facing. If you are facing any difficulty, any fear. It says start repeating the How will our La quwata illa Billah. And understand what you're saying I understand what you're saying. If you want your dog to be accepted, keep

00:21:37--> 00:22:22

repeating La La La La quwata illa Billah. Han understand what you're saying? You want to have the energy and you feel that you simply stuck say that Hola, La quwata illa Billah and understand what you're saying. And don't say it simply once or twice or 10 times. Say it as many times as needed for your situation to change. This could be for some people hundreds of times. I've heard of some people who are doing it 1000s of times, and they do report that Allah azzawajal didn't change their situation. But they persevered. They continued to say it day after day, week after week, month after month. And when you engage in Allah remember in something will change within you.

00:22:23--> 00:22:36

Your heart will change your body will change your mind will change any bit closer to Allah azza wa jal or hammer Rahimi and no one who asks a lot for assistance, those many times will be turned away.

00:22:38--> 00:23:20

So the hola wala quwata illa Billah is a treasure that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam has said to every single Muslim, here it is. You want to be rich over there. But you also want to be rich here. You want to be by your side and to assist you no matter what the difficulty or the problem is. Remember that Hola, La quwata illa Billah and feel it in your heart. Yeah, Allah I need you more than anyone else, or anything else. Yeah, Allah assist me. So as a lot of Allah, Allah mean, to make us of those who submit to Him all the time, to make us of those who returned to him often to make us of those who recognize their own helplessness and weakness and his ultimate and

00:23:20--> 00:24:03

complete power and who whenever they need assistance, they asked Allah azza wa jal first, whenever they need help, they rely on Allah azza wa jal, the most he Allah makers of your pious servants, make us of those whose hearts are alive, bring life back to our hearts so that we respond to your call and we stay away from what what from what you hate. Was your herbal Allah mean to plant firmly in our hearts, the love that we have for you, and for your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and for the righteous Allahumma Tina for dunya Hasina orfila healhty Hasina joaquina Adana, aloha Miami Oliver Kula with a bit khudobin Allah de Nick Allahumma yamasa riffle kulu be sorry fluvanna Allah
