Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was salam, ala rasulillah was early he was happy as main deal viewers of almoner International Convention in this beautiful month of Ramadan, where we have the conference on the team. Remarkable Ramadan, I am positive and I'm hopeful and I'm praying that Allah subhanaw taala is making your Ramadan indeed, truly remarkable Ramadan, my brothers and my sisters, indeed Time flies, you know Subhana Allah we are done with so many fastings now as time passes by, we need to realize and always remind ourselves again and again that we have to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that is a topic that I would like to share

00:01:04--> 00:01:08

with you in the session in sha Allah, the power of da

00:01:09--> 00:01:31

my brothers and sisters, Allah Subhana who are tied up in the beginning of the Quran, gives us the understanding that we have to reflect upon, and that is, he gives us the relationship between Allah and the entire creation.

00:01:32--> 00:02:34

In Allah subhanho wa Taala he says n hamdulillahi Rabbil aalameen. Allah is the Lord of the entire creation, Allahu Akbar. So Allah being the arrabal, we being his, his slaves, the relationship is very, very, very clear, that we as loved as the creation has to be always dependent on our rub. Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah being the rub the Lord, the cherisher, the Sustainer, the provider, the controller, the one who governs everything and who runs the entire creation, is obviously the only one who deserves to be asked for Allahu Akbar, meaning that as creation we can never, ever ask from any one. except Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the fundamental understanding

00:02:34--> 00:03:31

that we need to have in our lives, my brothers and sisters, we can never ask anyone, because there is no one who has the capacity, who has the power, who has the ability to give us anything and everything what we want, which is good for us. Subhan Allah, and when I say that which is good for us, I mean that Allah knows what is good for us and what's not. Allah knows when to give an when to you know, with with withhold, Allah knows, and we do not know so Allah subhanaw taala is the only one who alone deserves this beautiful sovereignty this exclusivity, where we all ask a lot of is alone. Now, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said something really beautiful, he said, A

00:03:31--> 00:04:34

Da Da Da, da, calling out to Allah asking ALLAH is an act of worship Subhana Allah. So kind of Allah subhanho wa Taala. When we ask Allah actually we ask for things that we need. So if I ask Allah for example, for a good job, Allah gives a good job, who benefited? I benefited on the top of it. Allah subhanho wa Taala apart from giving that what I asked for, he is rewarding me. He is giving the rewards for asking me Subhan Allah, Allah, Allah is mark these words, my brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala he gets angry about the one who does not ask Allah. Allah yar Salaam. Allah gets angry on a person, if he does not ask Allah which also brings us to our attention, that a lot of

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

blur is he made it an obligation. It is mandatory. It is the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. To ask Allah, a lot of Buddha he says in the Quran, Buddha only asked ajibola calm outcome. Call out to me. Ask for me. So I shall respond to you. Allahu Akbar. Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:00--> 00:05:55

He is giving a command in order for you and me to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is the reason my brothers and sisters we need to ask only Allah subhanho wa Taala because number one, he is our rub. Number two, he he being the rub, he has the capacity, the ability, the you know, way of giving us what He wills Subhan Allah also my brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala he said something which is so kind a lot about Isaiah he says in the Quran in Surah Al Baqarah surah number two is number 186 What does Allah carry body or knee for any poem? Oh gee Buddha to die either the iron funniest Jubilee Will you mean will be landerholm your shoe? Allah Subhana Allah says when my

00:05:55--> 00:06:48

servants asked for me to tell them, I am near to them, I listen, I and I accept to their supplications of all supplicants Subhan Allah, I give it to them. I respond to them. So let them respond to me by obeying me, so that they may be on the right guidance, Allahu Akbar. In the Hadith we know that that Allah subhanho wa Taala. He said that the prophets of Islam, he reports that Allah said, if the first of you in the last few, the interview, the gentle few were to come together at one point, at one point Subhanallah I want you to imagine this, just picture this imagination, if entire, you know human beings and the entire creation come together at one place at one point in

00:06:48--> 00:07:43

time and ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and Allah grants them all what they need, it will not reduce a bit from his milk from his kingdom. It will not reduce a bit from his kingdom, Allahu Akbar, my brothers and sisters. That's how great our Allah subhanho wa Taala is, that is how we need to ensure that we dial up Allah, Allah is anytime. You know, many times it comes to our mind that you know what I'm a sinner, Allah will not listen to me are also Billahi min ash shaytani regime. Well, to think that way is absolutely wrong and not allowed. Allah subhanho wa Taala he listens to us. The need is, we have to be sincere. If we are sinful, the need is we need to turn to Allah

00:07:43--> 00:08:29

subhanaw taala if we are disobeying Allah, we need to shift our path and come to the path where Allah subhanho wa Taala will be pleased with us, my brothers and sisters, we need to understand the fact that Allah subhanaw taala sometimes he gives it immediately in we all experience it, we all experienced it that Allah subhanaw taala when I ask Allah gives very quickly immediately, but sometimes Allah gives a little later, right? So Allah knows when to give, we need to have that belief in Allah subhanaw taala that he is an again, he is the most why so he knows when to give, who take how much to give, you know, all these things Allah is aware of we are not right we are not

00:08:29--> 00:08:30

aware of these things. So Allah

00:08:32--> 00:09:31

gives a little later sometimes Allah does not give, but we get the reward of it in the hereafter. So the idea is we should always be highly hopeful in the in the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala we need to be always be firm and certain in Allah subhanho wa Taala that a lot of Louisa will definitely give right so this mindset, this belief in Allah subhanaw taala gives and empowers us and gives us a fuel to to drive our lives in a way that is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala draa my brothers and sisters is so much needed Allahu Akbar, when we are in good situation we need to make dua to Allah subhanaw taala to keep us continuing and make it better right. When we are in bad situation when we

00:09:31--> 00:09:59

are in tough and challenging situation like the situation that we are going through because of the COVID-19 Coronavirus. We are going through the humanity is going through, you know a tough time we need to realize that we have to call out to Allah subhanaw taala for help for his mercy for his, you know, bounties and blessings Subhan Allah, so in the good times, we need to call out to Allah

00:10:00--> 00:10:54

In the bad times in the tough times in the challenging times, we need to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala. So it all point in times, we need to make sure that we call out to Allah subhanho wa Taala because of the fact that we are blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And because of the fact that we can never, we as the creation of Allah, we can never be independent on our own selves. We can never, we need to be dependent on the one who is independent, and that is Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah subhanho wa Taala is a summit. You know, a summit is the one who basically is independent, he is the one who who gives who grants and he doesn't need anything. You know, Allah subhanho wa Taala he

00:10:54--> 00:11:10

says, He feeds and he is not fed. So Allah is independent, Allah is self sufficient, he does not need anything from us. We need Allah subhanaw taala and that gives us, you know,

00:11:11--> 00:12:02

more strength to our understanding and believe that we need to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no way that we can, you know, be a person without asking the last panel dialogue. And that is the reason Subhana Allah, people, even those who don't believe in Allah, they still believe in this one power, they still believe in one Supreme Being and they say, you know, we have to call out to the Lord, we need to call out to God Subhan Allah, what we realize is this fate, this quality is inbuilt. This quality of asking and calling out to Allah subhanaw taala is very much within our, you know, existence within our lives. Subhana Allah, so we cannot be against we cannot go against the

00:12:02--> 00:12:57

nature and you know, not asking Allah subhanaw taala Moreover, my brothers and sisters, many of us, we actually undermine, we undermine ourselves by not asking Allah subhanaw taala what all we want Subhan Allah This is a fact that we may get tired and we do get tired of asking Allah subhanho wa Taala but Allah is one. Allah subhanahu wa taala is the one who does not get tired of giving us Allahu Akbar, my brothers and sisters, the need is that we call out to Allah subhanho wa Taala and ask Allah subhanaw taala for his mercy, ask Allah subhana wa Taala for agenda to Allah. And for those the highest levels of general ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for the company of the soul of Allah

00:12:57--> 00:13:05

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked for Allah subhanaw taala to give you the best in this world and the hereafter
