00:03:32--> 00:03:33

Cuz this is like coming this way

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

fair enough

00:03:57--> 00:03:59

we'll do it. We'll do we'll do

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

last slide Salam ala rasulillah semantics era. So before we begin just wanted to review quickly what we covered last week so we spoke about him to smile Christina, the names and attributes of Eliza yet the importance of getting to know these names and speaking on the importance of getting to know these names. There's a particular Heidi, that's very famous that speaks about the importance of the names of Eliza does anybody remember what it was?

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

With

00:05:02--> 00:05:08

the names of Allah azza wa jal, there's a hadith it's really well known not to make anybody feel bad or anything.

00:05:09--> 00:05:11

Everybody knows it. Okay?

00:05:12--> 00:05:27

It's a very it's a very popular ID on the, the virtue of knowing the names of Allah azza wa jal. He says to a lot belong how many names 99. Mia Illa Haider, right 100, except for one, whoever does

00:05:29--> 00:06:15

slot Manasa ha, the 100 agenda. He says whoever does this word slot, which we we talked over some of the meanings of it last week, that person will enter into paradise, right. And so he said, last week has three meanings. The scholars differed with regards to it, but it has three general meanings. The first was to figure out what they are right to seek them out to learn what those words are. And so that's why in Islamic history, many scholars have tried to present these are, what the 99 names are, and they differed over what the 99 names are, right. But that's part of the process of trying to figure out what those names are. The second was to do what we're trying to do here now, which is to

00:06:15--> 00:06:52

understand what these names mean, what does the man mean? What does ally mean? What does it medic mean? What does it produce mean? What are these names mean? And the third is after you understand what these names are, is that you asked a lot by these names, that you call upon a lie by these names, so that you are asking a lot for something and you are using the appropriate name for that. It increases your manners with Allah as diligent, you know, the greatest example of manners with a lot as though y'all are the prophets, the prophets, their manners with Allah is the highest. And so something that I want you to pay attention to is, for example, the conversation that happens between

00:06:52--> 00:07:24

a lot and II 70. Miriam on the Day of Judgment, a lot as dogen says, sort of tenma ADA was called La Jolla Isa, when a law says, oh, it is antiquated enough. Did you tell the people to take me and my mother as Gods besides a lot? Is that what you said? You told everybody Hey, worship Me and worship my mom. Is that what you did? And then he said, he said, I'm will reject categorically, you'll say Subhana far absolved Are you from these imperfections?

00:07:25--> 00:07:29

I had no right to say that. I would not say something that I had no right.

00:07:31--> 00:07:40

In Quantico, alimta if I had said that you would have known it Dynamo Murphy and FC, FC, I know what, you know what I can feel.

00:07:42--> 00:08:06

And I don't know what you can feel in Atlanta, Alabama, you You are the Knower of the unseen. And then he defends himself, right. He says, You know, I was witness over them as long as I was amongst among them. And then he continues, but then he says a phrase, which is very interesting, he says, into I've been home for a nominee, but he says, If you punish these people for saying what they said, they are your slaves, they're your servants. They're your creation,

00:08:07--> 00:08:27

will interfere in law home. And if you are to forgive them, in Naka, anthologies of hacking, you are an Aziz, you, you are the mighty, and you are the why. Now, the question is Risa is saying I didn't sit down, if you are to have if you are to forgive them,

00:08:28--> 00:08:35

then you are the mighty and the wise. Now if you were invoking forgiveness, wouldn't you say you are a fool Rahim?

00:08:36--> 00:08:53

Isn't that what you would say? You say winter Filipina cantaloupe. All right. Right. But then the question is Why doesn't he say that? Why does he say in Naka enterprises with hockey? You are the mighty and you are the wise? Why does he pick the appropriate name?

00:08:56--> 00:08:59

Like what's the what's the thought process? Who wants to take a shot? Yes.

00:09:10--> 00:09:23

Okay, but he's saying with regards to if you were to forgive them, these people right here this creation of yours if you're to forgive them, if you're to punish them, they belong to you. They're your property. You can do whatever you want. But if you're to forgive them,

00:09:24--> 00:09:36

then you are the mighty and you are the wise. He doesn't say if you are to forgive them, you are the Forgiving and you are the merciful. Look at how precise this wording is. What do you got? Yes.

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

Okay. So you're saying that he has mighty he has the power to forgive them. And he is the wise so he knows what's in them.

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

Heart and the other takers

00:10:03--> 00:10:21

on why this idea that I'm using that particular phrasing were mentioning this with regards to when you are invoking a lot as the gel. When you understand the meanings of these words you are better able to ask and it increases your adult with a lot as diligent your manners with a lot yeah.

00:10:36--> 00:10:36

Okay

00:10:47--> 00:11:03

okay so Allah as in as the mighty, no one's gonna force his hand. Right and a lot as soon as the for the is the why. So if he forgives them, then it is out of his knowledge and his wisdom. I want you to look bigger picture this context, this conversation is happening on what day

00:11:05--> 00:11:10

on the day of judgment on the day of judgment as a lot as a young happier as a lot angry on the Day of Judgment.

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

Happy

00:11:15--> 00:11:52

Adam and Eve Salam in the long hadith of Shiva, when the people come up to him and they say, intercede, start the day of judgment. Either it was said I will say my my lord is angry today an anger that he has never had before, nor will he ever have anger after. Like this is the day of of judgment. This is the day that we were promised. And so at least it is set up in those moments. Like for example, when you have a person who is absolutely just unfair and kind and merciful and things like that. And on the day where they have been wronged and they finally

00:11:54--> 00:12:00

are seeking retribution. And that person who they're seeking retribution from

00:12:01--> 00:12:08

is completely wrong. And they are right to be punished. And you come in between them. And you're like, Oh, just forget.

00:12:10--> 00:12:37

If they if they forgive, it's out of their own wisdom. If they forgive, they don't need you to invoke that is not the time for you to play middleman. And as I said, I'm recognizes that this is not the time for him to play middleman in between a lot as of yet in this creation. On that day, his job and other with a lot as we get to dictate that he stepped away from being in between a lot as in an anyone and to place himself firmly on the side of a lie zone.

00:12:39--> 00:12:41

I'm not I'm not in between you and anybody.

00:12:42--> 00:13:17

If you punish them, they belong to you, if you forgive them, it's out of your own mind. And it is added I'm not going to pretend that I'm more merciful than you are. And I'm not going to pretend that I have more forgiveness of recreation than you do. And so he's saying if you punish them, it is completely out of your prerogative. They are your property and if you are to forgive them, then you are the mighty and you are the wise. And so knowing the names of Allah azza wa jal increases your mannerisms with Eliza did that you call upon Allah azza wa jal by the most appropriate name for whatever it is that you desire. So we're going to jump right into

00:13:18--> 00:13:19

an medic

00:13:20--> 00:14:08

and then medic has three names that are all related to each other. The first is a medic. The second is Al Malik, and the third is a medic. So you have medic, you have Malik, and you have Malik. And all three of them are in the Quran. As for an medic, it's in salted hash or Eliza it says Hola, hola de la ilaha illa who Allah medical producer Salaam Amina Mohammed Aziz Bharata Kabir so a bunch of names are all listed and then medic is one of them. Also, it's in sort of fat. A lot as a yes as an hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Rahman Al Rahim, Maliki Yama, Deen and then another citation Melaka Yomi. De so medic is mentioned in sort of the fact that it's also mentioned the sort of the NASS

00:14:08--> 00:14:14

were allies of USS Colorado, there have been as many keenness Illa heinous.

00:14:16--> 00:14:29

Just a quick tangent sort of the NASS and sort of the fact how come full circle. So you have sort of the natural law says that hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen or sorry, so tell us how it goes. How How does it go?

00:14:33--> 00:15:00

I was just checking Colorado Filipinas milkiness illa heinous, right? So sort of the fat goes at hamdulillah. So you have Rob, you have Malik, you have Allah. Then you have sort of the fat how that goes and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Rahman Al Rahim, Maliki Ahmed de right the same the same word. molecule Medina. Er cannot Buddha can study. You alone do we worship they're basically saying you are a law you alone do we worship and You

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

alone we seek for help. So between the fat hands out of the nest you have this beautiful circle between the Quran. Allah says medic in Surah that hassle and sort of the NASS Allah as it says medic in medical Medina also in sort of Allah Emraan Allah as a justice for the llama medical milk to the milkman, Tasha attenzione, milk, me mentorship. And the verse continues, Allah says, say, oh, Allah, the Malik, the owner, the possessor of all milk, of all dominions of everything that can be possessed. You get the possession to whomever you wish, and you take it away from whoever you wish, and the verse goes on. So how is a large MOOC and also a leak a lot as they're just as in a matakana

00:15:42--> 00:16:10

feature, nothing when P makadi. 15. And the Maliki moqtada. Allah says that the believers are going to be in Jannat. They're going to be in gardens when, and and rivers. And this verse, this next verse, to me is completely untranslatable. It's just the the vivid imagery that it paints, I don't know how you can possibly translate it in English. So it's pretty much it said the pin and the Maliki moqtada. In a

00:16:11--> 00:16:21

place of truth, in the Maliki with a Malik, a possessor of ability, or a possessor of ownership, looked at it with great ability.

00:16:22--> 00:16:38

Like it doesn't do the same at all. But anyway, medic is mentioned there. So you have these three names, they're all related to the issue of Dominion or kingdom, a lost kingdom, as compared to everybody else's, and our laws, ownership compared to everybody else's.

00:16:39--> 00:17:17

Our ownership is all temporary, it's limited to a time and it's limited to a place. So take any King on Earth. Right? They you have the King of Jordan, King of Saudi Arabia, the Queen of England, they're restricted to places very small places also. So they have boundaries to their kingdom, as a lot as agenda is a little bit adamant. He is the Lord of the worlds. And he is the king of kings, and the He is the king of everything. So number one, you have the the places themselves, they are limited in their kingdom. The second is their time.

00:17:18--> 00:17:58

Everybody, whether it's my ownership of my house, or my ownership of my car, or my ownership of my phone, as soon as I, I bought it before it was the possession of somebody else, if I took it without paying for it, I would have been arrested for doing that. Or I sell it. And now it's the possession of somebody else. And so if I tried to take it again, even though it was my car last week, if I try it again, I get arrested for it. Well, how come because it's the ownership has transferred. However, the ownership of a law doesn't transfer ever a law as of yet is the owner of the heavens and the earth forever. And so everybody else, their ownership is limited, and it's temporary.

00:17:59--> 00:18:10

The greatest kings, the greatest owners the most wealth, you take all of them. And you'll find that they have a moment in time. And then they disappear.

00:18:11--> 00:18:53

The greatest of them, you know, sometimes you think about these, these kings that lived hundreds of years ago and 1000s of years ago, and you think about their power. And it's really mind boggling. If people have delusion, with the power that they have now, you take any president of any country any tyrant, and they're delusional, right, they really believe that they they own the resources of their land, they really believe that they own the service of their people, they really believe these things. And yet, even then, in the in the 21st century, the world that we're living it, they still don't have the level of delusion that was afforded to the old kings, like the old kings had it

00:18:53--> 00:19:13

better. Being a tyrant was much easier back then. There was no human rights charters, there was no groups monitoring your abuses. There were no journalists who were adversarial to you and trying to expose you there was none of that, for me was simply say a little boy, hula hula done.

00:19:14--> 00:19:15

I am your Lord the most Hi.

00:19:17--> 00:19:24

Hey, Egypt, don't you see that all of you belong to me. And these rivers flow underneath my feet.

00:19:26--> 00:19:59

The mood who says Abraham Abraham says to him, my lord creates life and brings death and he says, Oh, I do that too. I know you will meet. Like you see the level of delusion that these guys had, because their ownership was more. I don't want to say it was it was more perfect, but it was it was greater than the ownership and the key and the power that modern day tyrants have. Nonetheless, you take these figures who literally enslaved their populations

00:20:00--> 00:20:16

usurped their wealth and had access to everything that they that they could have desired or could have imagined it was said about our own, the Allies dogen extended his pleasure so much in in his life that he never ever, ever suffered a headache.

00:20:17--> 00:20:26

Never. He never had a fever. He never had a flu. He never had a cough, headache he never suffered. That was the level of delusion that Eliza did granted this man

00:20:28--> 00:20:28

and

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

were his effects now.

00:20:33--> 00:20:40

like where is he in history now? This great king, you know, Percy Shelley, he wrote a poem when

00:20:42--> 00:21:12

the British poet when the British Museum had recovered a fragment of a statue of Ramses the second. So Percy Shelley, he wrote a poem it was inspired by this that the British Museum was receiving this this structure. And it was called Ozymandias, Ozymandias so I wanted to read to you this poem, there's a lot of pigment in it. It's very beautiful, actually. And he says in it, you know, it talks about this concept of, of you

00:21:13--> 00:21:20

the fate of history and the ravages of time and how all ownership no matter how magnificent is simply going to go away.

00:21:21--> 00:21:24

It's all temporary. He says, I met a traveller from an antique land,

00:21:25--> 00:22:02

who said to vast and trunk list legs of stone, stand in the desert, near them on the sand, half sunk, a shattered discharge lies, whose frown and wrinkled lip and smear of cold command tell that it's sculptor? Well, those passions, right? So you have this, this face that survived, half broken, with a snarl on it, indicating that whoever was sculpting this, recognize those passions? Well, so you've got this image of a menacing Pharaoh, right? a wicked and angry person,

00:22:03--> 00:22:34

he says, which yet survives, stepped on these lifeless things, the hand that mocked them in the heart that fed and on the pedestal these words appear. My name is Ozymandias, King of kings. Look on my works, ye mighty and despair, nothing besides remains round the decay of that colossal wreck, boundless and bear. The Lone and level stands stretch far away. That's all that remains. The Lone and level sets.

00:22:36--> 00:22:46

Before that the Muslims boy said Amen. Look at john minemining. weigh in. I mean, who McCarron with a gentle atoll como como llamada de la Ha, ha de kado. For Kendall como Makana?

00:22:47--> 00:22:59

Where are these great kings, the ones with the crowns from Yemen, and where are they and what happened to them. at El komamura, an affair happened to them, which was death, an affair happened to them that they weren't able to repel.

00:23:01--> 00:23:39

And so they disappeared as if they never existed. How many kings of earth have lived on this in this line? How many queens how many tyrants how many great people and history completely washed them away. We don't even know their names. So let's not be diluted with our own temporary, you know, somehow, like we get so caught up with the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and who's hot right now and who has 7 million Twitter followers and all of this and we're like, Man, this person is living large. And we forget that 20 years ago, if we were to simply ask our parents 30 years ago, they'll tell us of celebrities who were like, Who are you talking about? I've never heard of this person.

00:23:40--> 00:23:53

And I'm like, What are you talking about? This person was like my life revolved around this person. And that's the way that it goes. All that remains is that about the apple cider hat? That's all you can't expect everything else is going to disappear. So Allah azza wa jal

00:23:55--> 00:24:26

is the one who's the possessor of real milk. Allah is the possessor of the real dominion and a lot as again as the giver of that the prophets the lightest and and tells us that on the Day of Judgment, there's going to be a man who's going to come out of the Hellfire, the last person to come out of the hellfire. This person will have been in the Hellfire for however long they've been in the Hellfire and then they are to come to paradise. But they find that Paradise is full. Like every space is taken under La Jolla, all of us have gone there 1000s and 1000s and 1000s of years before Paradise is full.

00:24:27--> 00:24:30

You guys don't even want to see I mean, come on man.

00:24:31--> 00:24:39

The least that you can do is the enemy. So the prophet SAW the lights and and tells us that this man is going to enter into this person is going to come and find paradise for

00:24:40--> 00:24:53

and so Allah has a good will ask him what he wishes. And Allah as the hero will then tell him after he answers he will say would you be pleased if you were to have the world

00:24:55--> 00:24:55

with Mr. Hillman

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

and something similar to it as well as

00:25:00--> 00:25:22

Something similar to it as well, and something similar to it as well, until he says 10 times. So this person will have 10 times of this earth, and its resources in its places, its beauty, all of these things. That person will have 10 times the last person to enter into the province. The light itself says that this man will say, oh my lord, Are you mocking me? And you're the Lord of the worlds?

00:25:24--> 00:25:26

Are you playing with me? Are you tricking me?

00:25:27--> 00:26:04

So this is the person who has the least Chair of the dunya. So what then about the sabich? conocida? como la una? What about the people who are there? What about us? How will you mean? What are they going to have? What are we going to have inshallah to enter into paradise? When this is the person who has the least of paradise? This indicates to us just a little bit about the dominion of Allah as the widget, the power of Allah the sovereignty of Allah, Allah Isaiah he says, Put the llama medical milk to the milkman, Tasha Watson's come in Manisha to resume and to shadow to the moment Shall we ethical Hi, Nicola. kushina Kalia. Allah says in Milan, he says, oh, say Oh Allah, you are the owner

00:26:04--> 00:26:33

of sovereignty. You give sovereignty to whom you will and you take sovereignty away from who you will. Now Allah as he says to him will come into you give it to whoever you wish, what tends to be more common mentorship, and you take it away, and NASA indicates like you're grabbing it, you're pulling it away. Right? You're pulling it away. Why? Because the default with regards to humanity is that once they receive something, they're not just going to give you a transfer of power peacefully. That's not what happens.

00:26:35--> 00:27:00

They hold on to it. President for four years becomes president for life. Aren't you happy now? There's no 10 zero Mulcahey mentorship you take it away What is your mentorship within the mentorship you give honor to whoever you wish and to the lumen Tasha, you humble whomever you wish in your hand is all good be ethical here in the gala coalition period, you are able to do all things here are two beautiful

00:27:02--> 00:27:43

comments on on on on these two lines, be ethical hate in nakahara coalition party you have in your hand is all good. And you are able to do all things. When you're thinking about and medic, Al Malik, and Malik, you know these names, they're supposed to invoke things in us when the prophet SAW the lightest and and tells us a safer, he tells us a he tells us an attribute of a lot or a lot tells us an attribute of a lot. It's not just so that we can say Oh, Allah is in medic, He's the owner of everything. No, that's supposed to affect our relationship with a lot. If the previous lesson tells us a lot is a man or a lot tells us a lot of man that's supposed to cause us to react and interact

00:27:43--> 00:27:46

with Rahman in a certain way that we have hoping as mercy.

00:27:48--> 00:27:55

So what does believe that Allah has really is the owner of everything? What should that be? What should that invoke in us?

00:27:56--> 00:28:04

That's the question that I'm asking you. What should that invoke in us? Like, what should that make you want from him? Or what should that make you ask him?

00:28:07--> 00:28:08

The best, okay.

00:28:10--> 00:28:11

Anything why anything?

00:28:22--> 00:28:27

Okay, because he's able to do all things. Like all all things are all like,

00:28:30--> 00:28:31

just kind of some stuff.

00:28:33--> 00:28:39

It's true, man. It happens to us. I'll give you an example. I was with Jeff woody in New York a couple weeks ago.

00:28:41--> 00:28:42

And we were in Central Park.

00:28:43--> 00:28:51

And Central Park has apartments that are overlooking it. And those apartments are I don't know how many millions of dollars

00:28:53--> 00:29:09

you're overlooking the park right in Manhattan. It's super prime real estate. Amazing prime real estate. So I'll certainly check what he does showing him I'm like, yeah, this apartment is probably like a couple million dollars. This apartment. Is this This apartment is that God is like a model. Would you like to live in an apartment in Central Park? I was like, absolutely. What are you talking about? I grew up

00:29:12--> 00:29:16

so he says all la renta modern apartment overlooking Central Park and he starts making

00:29:18--> 00:29:18

and I'm like,

00:29:21--> 00:29:21

Okay,

00:29:22--> 00:29:30

so then he says, He says, I asked you, he said when you said I mean, did you really believe it was gonna happen? I said absolutely not.

00:29:32--> 00:29:36

So he says upon Allah, he said, when I made that I had full up that you are going to have it.

00:29:38--> 00:29:40

I was like, okay, okay, okay. I mean, I mean,

00:29:41--> 00:29:59

but a lot of times when we we, we say in nakada cliche, if you're able to do all things, but in our hearts, we're kind of like, this is a little too much. That's not really gonna happen. But, again, it's about us having certainty, right? That you believe that Allah has agenda.

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

Able to do all things that Allah digit is Able to do all things and that the one that you are asking in his hands is the heavens and the earth.

00:30:10--> 00:30:21

And that's something that we have to continuously remind each other and continue to practice until we believe it and when it does, when we do believe it, it's power inshallah tada is transformative. The Prophet sallallahu sallam,

00:30:22--> 00:30:27

or even before that Allah says, molecule, Medina, why is it Malik Yomi Deen in particular,

00:30:29--> 00:30:35

like allies nomadic of everyday. But why does Allah specifically say that he's the magic of the Day of Judgment?

00:30:38--> 00:30:52

The scholars have talked about this, but one of the interpretations I like is that because he's the medic of the day of judgment in particular, in the sense that on the day of judgment in the dunya, there are people who pretend to be like a lot.

00:30:53--> 00:31:29

They pretend to have ownership with allies. They pretend to be kings, they pretend to be, I am the King of kings. People say that even though the prophets love lies, and I'm setting the violence name with Allah as the as the person who calls himself the King of kings. There is no king except for Allah. But you have people who call themselves the King of kings. Go ahead, call it yourselves the King of kings, on the day of judgment, who's going to claim anything? Nobody. So here's the magic of the Day of Judgment. Because on that day, no challengers and no competitors, none shall speak, not even the whisper the challenges of that day, the tears of that day will be enough of an inhibitor.

00:31:29--> 00:31:32

Okay, so on the Day of Judgment, there's going to be no competition with allies.

00:31:35--> 00:31:36

Or allies. It just says

00:31:44--> 00:31:59

forgetting the allies on the Day of Judgment there's going to be competitive among no competition with allies and allies as the province of the lightest send them he says and even neuroma battle solo loss of allies center says yes we Lahu as the jealous tomato kiama for my

00:32:01--> 00:32:32

former co nn medic, ineligible enemy to Cabo America boon from met with all the machinery from a medic energy balance in America Bureau. It almost says that the province of the lightest sent him while he was on the moon, but he said that on the Day of Judgment, Allah azza wa jal is going to fold or that Allah Jade is going to place the heavies in his right hand and he will say, I am the king, where are the hottie? And where are the proud today and then he will fold the earth in his hand and he will say I am the king, where are the hottie? And where are the proud today?

00:32:33--> 00:32:36

So to conclude and medic, the belief in this name

00:32:38--> 00:32:53

should increase our hopes and what is with Allah as of yet and and our insistence and asking it from him. That when we recognize that everything is in the hands of a law, so given that he has the ability to grant us whatever he wills the province of law, I sent him in a beautiful Heidi's Pudsey. He says that a law just says yeah, even the item

00:32:55--> 00:32:57

or a law as a yes.

00:32:58--> 00:33:02

You have any Adam no no welcome Akuma in saco. With Gino calm calm

00:33:03--> 00:33:24

for it to cool in San in Mr. Potato cooler in Santa Monica Santa Monica Marin de la cama yakushima, Kyoto outfield bow, Allah says that all mankind, if the first of you and the last of you, and the interview mankind of you and the agenda view, all were to get on a single plane, 7 billion of us were all to stand in front of allies.

00:33:25--> 00:33:33

And we were all to ask everything that our hearts could conjure up and our wildest imaginations could imagine.

00:33:34--> 00:34:15

And then Allah says our to get our and to say no to anybody, everybody would get exactly what they asked and multiply the 7 billion. Add to that however, many people have existed until this point, and how many will exist until the day of judgment, man episodic memory and the lack of a nucleus is a killer. Except that wouldn't take away from my kingdom except what a needle takes away from the ocean, that one drop that the needle will pick up from the ocean. That's what will take away from a lot of religious dominion, if you were to give all of us everything. So who are the one that who's the one that we were asking? And to recognize that we recognize that everything that we could

00:34:15--> 00:34:24

possibly want? Number one is that it's not great in the sight of a lot as the widget, whatever it is, it's not. It's not too big for a lot. And number two,

00:34:27--> 00:34:36

that it's not too it's not too great for a lot. So again, and number two, is that everything that we want

00:34:38--> 00:34:50

their hearts are controlled by our lives. So again, you know, the previous lesson he taught me and I best this he says he that's the law with a Stanford MBA law. If you're to ask anyone then ask for a lot. Look how many people you ask in a date.

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

You ask your job for a day off you ask your parents for money you ask your friend for a ride you ask you ask you ask you ask me

00:35:00--> 00:35:14

You might ask the Imam for a recommendation you ask your friend to look at your resume you asked for so many things from so many people and the province the lowlights and them teaches us that if you're to ask anybody ask a lot. And if you're to seek the help of anybody seek the help of Allah.

00:35:15--> 00:35:26

While I'm in the room, Alinea for Oklahoma federal commission, Illa, cuttable, hula, hula, that if the entire world were together to help you with something like imagine, if a person had 7 billion people behind them.

00:35:27--> 00:35:46

7 billion people, you'd be super excited. You know, you create a petition and you find the next day that 100,000 people signed the petition. How stoked would you be, and yet the province of abiertas. And them says that forget 100,000 people, if the entire world are together to help you with one thing, they wouldn't be able to help you except with something that a lot as it has already helped, decided.

00:35:48--> 00:35:57

And if they were to all gather tick to kill you to harm you. 7 billion people, they wouldn't be able to do anything except that Eliza has already written for you.

00:36:01--> 00:36:06

They've known him he says in the callback, he be a demon.

00:36:07--> 00:36:09

In the callback manager with a be a demon,

00:36:10--> 00:36:34

that the heart of the one that you turn to whoever it is that person that you're seeking, whoever it is, that that person you're trying to, to persuade, in your everyday life. Never forget that that person's heart is in the hands of the one who you turn away from. Make sure that the first the first that you turn, you turn to and the last that you turn to is always Allah azza wa jal, the King of kings.

00:36:36--> 00:36:41

This is with regards to and medic, Allah to Allah Allah, the next name is a produce

00:36:42--> 00:36:47

and produce is really a name that your average Arabic speaker they may not, you know,

00:36:48--> 00:37:26

be able to figure out its connotations it's not really used that much in in regular conversation or Arabic. But it'll produce is mentioned as the name of Allah as well in a number of places in the Koran. One of his is sort of that hash of that same sort of that we mentioned earlier that lists a number of the names. Hola, hola, de la ilaha illa Allah medical producer Sara movement, so you could use as mentioned there, and a lot as the dimensions and sort of the Juma you said, the holy let him have his tomato method out and medical produce, Allah sees it, Hakeem. So Allah mentions that everything exalts a lot as I did in the heavens and the earth, the Sovereign, the pure, the Exalted,

00:37:26--> 00:37:36

the mighty and otherwise, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to invoke the name of a produce, he used to say, in his little core and his sujood, suburban produce. Babu, mela equity.

00:37:37--> 00:37:46

So this is something that the province of the license needs to say, quick tangent, if you go onto autopilot in your salon, and you want to figure out a way to

00:37:48--> 00:38:14

increase your focus, one of the quickest and the easiest ways is to just change up your the things that you say in the salon. Just like for example, when you leave the masjid tonight, and you drive home, while you're driving home, you'll probably be able to talk on the phone and have a passionate conversation with somebody in the car with you. And you're not really paying attention to the road. But you end up in front of your house. The question is, why do you end up in front of your house?

00:38:17--> 00:38:21

How are you able to end up in front of your house even though you're the last thing you're paying attention to is the way home?

00:38:24--> 00:38:38

Exactly right. It's routine, its regular, you've done it a million times. So you don't really need to focus on this particular aspect. I can allow myself to be distracted by a million other things. Because I know how to do this. However, if you're ever in an area of town,

00:38:39--> 00:38:44

your GPS isn't working. And you're lost. Are you still able to talk on the phone?

00:38:45--> 00:38:52

No, right? You say I'm sorry. Listen, I gotta call you back. I have no idea where I'm at. I think I'm in Dallas somehow. You're like, What are you talking about?

00:38:54--> 00:38:54

But

00:38:55--> 00:39:00

that's the power of being away from your routine. And so if a person

00:39:02--> 00:39:13

they're been praying the same prayer for 10 years, you know, I had one of my machines. He showed me the city if he says that when he used to teach Sunday school.

00:39:14--> 00:39:19

I said I used to teach you that this is a tip for Sunday school teachers. He said I used to teach the kids to make draft for me and

00:39:21--> 00:39:22

they say all

00:39:23--> 00:39:45

right, he's like I used to teach them to say that why he said because I know Muslims, they don't change their Salah for like 10 years. So the DA that I teach them to make Institute they're probably gonna be saying that they're out for like the next 15 years. And he said I met one of my Sunday School students 10 years later, and he said chef Muhammad, I make the offer you in every session or in every salon.

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

Okay? So but this person's Allah knows best but that person Salah is probably it's just automatic, right? It's completely robotic. So one of the things that you can do is to just change up everything that you say and there are so many different iscar that

00:40:00--> 00:40:35

You can do there's so much variety in the follow up in the car. So here you have, you know, if you say some how to be a lien, right or you say some how to be an Allah and that's pretty much your subject and that's your record, the province of Allied cinema say so. He says, So canon medical produce some kind of medical produce from the manufacturer. This is something that the prophet SAW said him used to say, when you get up from Morocco, instead of just saying, we're gonna look at you, at Hamlin Cathedral and play when Mubarak and fee you add more to it, and this will get you thinking again, learning a new surah switch it up, you know, get your heart quivering again. Do that

00:40:35--> 00:41:00

inshallah Tada, it will increase your focus. Then he says, when he would finish his widget prayer, the province the licensed minister says a Pan American producer Pan American produce. And he used to say this three times, and he would raise his voice when saying the province less than him would raise his voice when he would say it. What are the meanings of produce? What does it mean? The first meaning, and the most apparent is that a producer is the one who's free from all defects. He's pure.

00:41:02--> 00:41:33

The Arabs they used to call the vessel that they used to use to purify themselves others. And so produce carries the connotation of being pure from all defects. Allah azza wa jal produces the one who's absolved of all shortcomings, all partners all associate, all associates, he's the one who's absolved from every attribute, that is unbefitting of Allah has the virgin unbefitting of His Majesty. So every attribute, that is not befitting of Allah as the origin is rejected, because he is a produce,

00:41:34--> 00:41:39

even if that attribute denotes perfection in his creation, like what?

00:41:41--> 00:41:42

If a person doesn't sleep?

00:41:44--> 00:41:45

Is that an attribute of perfection?

00:41:47--> 00:41:47

Or not?

00:41:49--> 00:41:52

Not right. For person doesn't asleep doctors up?

00:41:53--> 00:41:54

Are they going to be seeking?

00:41:57--> 00:42:39

Are they going to be seeking some sort of cure from that insomnia? Right? Now, however, with regards to a loss of sleep is a deficiency. And so it's rejected from Allah. Allah says Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah who led synthomer I know Allah as he says he is not affected by slumbered, he's not affected by sleep. These things do not touch our lives with regards to Allah, they are a deficiency, and so it's rejected. So everything that is defective Allah as though it is pure from that, and that's one of the meanings of a produce. The second meaning of produce is the possessor of Baraka and the possessor of bounty. What does Baraka mean? Baraka means the other two. Baraka means increasing in

00:42:39--> 00:43:16

good. So, you say, a plate has Baraka when it's meant to feed a single person and here it feeds 10 people, you're like, Man, this plate has this food has bought up in Okay, so Baraka is when something the good of something is increased. And so Allah Isaiah is the possessor of Baraka, Allah is the one who grants Baraka, Allah as the wheel is the one who designates certain places to have bought a car or certain times to have bought a car or certain people to have bought a car. So Allah has made the profits bless it a lot as we didn't meet certain places. Bless it. He made Mecca blessing he made. Medina bless it, he made an Goodson bless it. So he made the prayer in Mecca equal

00:43:16--> 00:43:49

to how many prayers in Aqaba. 100,000. He made the prayers in Medina equal to how many 1000 you made prayers and outputs are missing the opposite equal to 500. So a lot as in increased the blessings of these places. A lot as a man makes times bless it. So Allah as he blesses the last 10 nights of Ramadan, Allah blesses the 10 days of their hedger, Allah blesses the day of arafah. So Allah blesses these times that he made actions within these times more rewardable than actions and other times. So Allah as again, is the one who's the giver of blessings. Allah as the agent is the one

00:43:50--> 00:44:00

who blesses people's actions, he blesses their time, a lot. So yen makes the risk, bless it. So a lot as it can make a person whose interest is

00:44:02--> 00:44:08

whatever he gives them, he makes it bless it so that it's enough to suffice them and even enough for them to bless others with that wealth.

00:44:09--> 00:44:33

And a lot as it can give a person a lot of risk, and strip away the botica from it. And so it becomes a source of sadness for them, it becomes a source of stress for them, it becomes a source of lack of health for them, it becomes a trial for them, and a hassle for them. A sorrow for them a lot as it can bless a person's life. So you find that a person dies at the age of 40.

00:44:35--> 00:44:57

And they filled the earth with their legacy. Their legacy trans spans centuries, millennia, even and continents because of some sort of knowledge that they spread, or some sort of justice that they established or some sort of idea that they innovated. Yeah, people like Armand Abdulaziz we've been talking about

00:44:59--> 00:44:59

since he passed away

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

He died in 100 year history.

00:45:02--> 00:45:16

So over 1200 years 1300 years, we've been talking about him as he died under the age of 40. Or at 40. someone like him and no because of the justice that he established you have someone like him and no he also under 40

00:45:17--> 00:45:55

the high estimates placemat 40. And yet this person by name a lot a lot blessed his time in his life so much that every literally every work that he wrote turned to gold and just accepted it. The almost all of its different groups and all of its different denominations and all of its different thoughts, every mystery that you go to, you'll find a lot of aynd of nowhere you'll find relative sleight of hand or you'll find his commentary on Muslim or you'll find something and everything that he did, it just became the standard Allah has to give blesses people and so asking Allah to bless our time, and to seek out the blessing times the province level lightest and I'm said Boudicca

00:45:55--> 00:46:15

lumati Phoebe Correa, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that Allah has blessed this woman in its early writings, that this almost blessed in the morning time, also of the devotions, or the meanings of Tabarak, or sorry, will produce his he's the one who the hearts of the creation, do techniques of

00:46:16--> 00:46:21

the absolve him from all imperfections. And so he's the one who all of mankind,

00:46:22--> 00:46:42

and all of us creation, the mountains and the oceans, and the fish, and all of his animals, the creation, they all make that list of allies. They all absolve allies from imperfections, they all praise allies, they all exalt Him a lot. And I want to just wrap up with a system and this is going to be short inshallah, and then we'll be done.

00:46:43--> 00:46:44

The meaning of a setup.

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

And a system is one of the names of a lot as well as personal rot, and Hasha. Right, so

00:46:53--> 00:47:28

over the next couple of days, at least next week, it'll also all of the names will have been mentioned the salted hash, so as salam means a salad, and a salad means the one who's secure the one who's safe, the one who is unblemished, and Allah is Salim in his that, in his essence, Allah as we call it Salim in his sifat, a Salomon His attributes, and he said him in his other hand, he sat him in his actions, meaning that there's no defect or shortcomings that touches them in any manner.

00:47:29--> 00:47:49

Allah as the general attributes, his essence, his actions, they are all free from defects. What do I mean by that? So they're free from all imperfections. So for example, His he's free from imperfections in his ability, like we talked about with regards to, you know, different groups who said that a lot like the Jews, who said that Allah azzawajal

00:47:50--> 00:48:29

created the heavens and earth in six days. And then he rested on the seventh a lot as it is Salim from that, that he needs rest. And so a lot of users will chill out, or maybe no Murphy city. I mean, Obama said, I mean, local law says we created the heavens and earth in six days. Yeah. But Allah says, well, Mama said on the main loop, we were not afflicted by any exhaustion. We there was no tiring, there was no need for rest from Allah as diligent. Allah as a yen is free from any imperfections in his knowledge. So Allah as it is, knowledge is perfect. It's free from any ignorance, it's free from any hesitancy it's free from any doubt, a lot as though God knows the

00:48:29--> 00:48:44

present and the future and the past. And they're all the same. You know, the scholars they say about Allah. So just before that what Eliza just says about himself, he says, endo Houma. fatica Li, La Ilaha Illa who were Alamo Moffitt, bollywood bajo Moscow, Tamara cotton, la la,

00:48:45--> 00:48:50

la la la, la Addison elaphiti tabin movie, Allah says that he has the keys to the unseen.

00:48:52--> 00:49:32

No one has access to them except for him. for him. We are no more mafia. mafia. He knows what is in the land and he knows what is in the sea. What matters to me What? Li aloha there's not a leaf that falls except that Allah is aware of it. You know, in the fall here in Houston on all of the leaves fall, which never happens. But in other places when the leaves fall, and you just look down the street and all you see are leaps. Allah says every single one of them is accounted for every snowflake that faults, a lot counts for it. And then he says, what a habit if you follow metal art, so this is something that's more appropriate, a grain of sand that moves or shifts, any piece of

00:49:32--> 00:49:59

dirt that you kick or is carried by the wind anywhere. What I mean when I obviously electric it'll be moving, it's all recorded from allies dojo, all of that knowledge is there. The scholars say about Allah. Ya Allah mama can Oh my akuna Mamma mia colo Kanika they said Allah knows makan. Allah knows everything that has happened. You know, the the Muslims, they started to talk about a lot of knowledge when it had a big abusive category.

00:50:00--> 00:50:10

To the Kaaba, with with, with boulders outside. He leads each to the city of Mecca during the LFO of the live news event. Hijazi music was the movie General

00:50:11--> 00:50:54

of American numeral one, and Haji Musa beseiged, of the live news event at the Kaaba, and he started catapulting rocks at the GABA. And so that kind of boat was struck, and the caribou was damaged. And so Muslims began to think and they were saying, hey, did Allah know that this was going to happen to the Kaaba? Or did he just find out like everybody else? Right, so this was the first time that people started talking about like a law doesn't know what's going to happen in the future. So the scholars they said, Allah knows and and people began to ask God to live near Ahmad and I'm delighted Noma then went, when people met him in that hedge, they they asked him, and I was alive. No, that

00:50:54--> 00:51:17

was that that question was the one that initiated the live neuroma, sharing the famous hadith of God at the library. I said to them, no, tell them that I'm free for them, and they're free from me and that they will not if if they were to give the entire mountain then gold. Allah wouldn't accept that from them that charity from them, unless they believe the other I heard on the top say, they might not know delusion and also realize oh, Santa Fe, oh my.

00:51:19--> 00:51:41

God this is mentioned. However, with regards to what they know about a lot of what we know about a lot of the scholars said yamaka Allah knows everything that is in the past. What am I akun Allah knows the future. Why am I lm Yoku, lo kana Kafeel cool. And he knows everything that didn't happen, if it happened, how it would happen. So all of the combinations and the permutations that you think about,

00:51:42--> 00:52:09

if I wasn't born, in the century that I was born in, if I wasn't born to the parents that I had, if my parents didn't meet each other when they did, and they had married separate people, if I didn't have that sibling, or if I had really been able to trade them like I had wanted to trade them in elementary school, how my life would have played out how every single decision that I ever, ever made, if I had picked any one of the multitude of other

00:52:11--> 00:52:46

choices that were available to me at any point in time, how that would have played out. A lot knows how all of that would have played out. If I wasn't born into the family that I was born into. If I wasn't born in the century that I was born into, if I wasn't the race that I am, if I didn't speak the languages that I do, if I didn't live in Houston at this particular time I lived somewhere else. Allah knows how all of that would have played out and that is mind boggling. But that is the knowledge of a lot. And so we're comfortable in that whatever Allah has chosen for us, he is that as he is he is an Hakeem. He's the mighty and he is the wise. He's the mighty and he is the wise. So

00:52:46--> 00:52:56

he's perfect in his knowledge. Allah says, Allah, Allah, Masha, Masha Masha Allah mechoulam in Nigeria salata, tienen la ilaha illallah

00:52:57--> 00:53:31

wa salam ala home in America, no sumi in a boom Bhima Emiliano kiama. In a logical machinery, have you not considered that a lot knows what is in the heavens and what's in the earth. There is no private conversation of three except that Allah is the fourth, nor are there five except that he is the sixth. And there's no less than that and no more except that he is with them in his knowledge wherever they are, and then he will inform them of what they did on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed, Allah is of all things knowing so anytime you're having a conversation with anyone privately you remember that allies agenda is the third amongst you, or the fifth or the seventh or however many

00:53:31--> 00:54:14

there are. A lot as the agenda. Always make sure that you plus one, because of Allah has we just presence as salam is the one who is free from lying or oppression. Allah says what they were talking about Kalamata Rebecca says, karnavati la llamada de la cara Maria was Samuel le, and the word of your Lord has been fulfilled silicon wa Taala In truth, and injustice, none can alter his words and he is the hearing and the knowing silicon meaning Seth can feel about Allah azzawajal is truthful. His words are truthful in everything that he's narrated to us and everything that he said will happen. It is in truth and Adena truthfulness, Adlon, Phil aka everything that Allah commands from

00:54:14--> 00:54:21

us is just so this shady that Allah has legislated for us and all of its details.

00:54:23--> 00:54:48

It's completely just, it's completely just, and I recognize that if it's praying five times a day, if it's not eating this or participating in that or not doing this or not doing that, that in me doing so, I am living a life that is completely good and pure because Allah azza wa jal is completely just and wise in what he legislates. And so that group grants you a contentment that grants you a happiness

00:54:49--> 00:55:00

a Salaam salam, Allah as it is a Salam in what he gives in what he withholds. So when Allah withhold something from us, we recognize that it's not out of stinginess, and it isn't out of lack of respect

00:55:00--> 00:55:46

horses, but it is out of a lot as your greatest wisdom. And it is a lot as though he does that He gives His servants what is best for them. And also as Suriname is indicative of Allah azzawajal perfection he made it the greeting between each other. He made a salam, the greeting between us. So Allah as I just says here tomio como Sara HRM Karima Allah says that on the day of judgment on the day where they meet a lot so yeah there to hear their greeting is going to be set up. And Allah has prepared for them generous reward, and a lot as we just says about about us for either the hotel beautiful facility modern physical and physical theater meaning the line mobile like a temple but

00:55:46--> 00:55:52

when you enter your houses give greetings of peace upon each other a greeting from Allah bless it and good

00:55:56--> 00:56:18

The final thing that I want to mention is that a Salam is also a decree that a lot as gifts, it's a status that a lot gifts to his believing slaves. And so Allah is dead, for example, a sort of sarfati mentioned a lot of prophets said I'm gonna infill alamy salam O Allah Ibrahim sadananda masaharu salam, O Allah.

00:56:20--> 00:56:30

Allah has an agenda saying Salam upon these prophets and he's sick and he concludes the slaughter. He says, sit down when it says Allah because

00:56:31--> 00:56:48

Allah Allah said city, and Salam upon the prophets, what does this mean? are the messengers it means that these people Eliza has decreed that they are going to be safe and secure on the day of gentlemen there, they're good. They're safe. Allah there it says putting hamdu Lillah wa salam Allah.

00:56:50--> 00:56:58

Allah said, hamdulillah and salam, this security and this safety upon those slaves of Allah as of yet who he has chosen.

00:56:59--> 00:57:40

And so this Salam is a is a security and a safety that Allah has it gives to his believing servants. And that doesn't mean that they live these lives that we anticipate to be safe safety meaning on the Day of Judgment, it doesn't mean that they necessarily have lives that are don't have turmoil or don't have fear, or don't have problems. No we know that the the the prophets they lived lives that were very difficult. But allies we didn't cast into their hearts Sakina, Toma, Nina a lot cast into their hearts, tranquility, river, contentment with a law decree that made them living in a paradise while they were living on earth. And while they were going through their difficulty, even taymiyah

00:57:40--> 00:57:47

he says that there is a paradise in the heart, that whoever does not experience it will not enter the paradise of

00:57:48--> 00:58:09

this serenity with the decree of Allah as we had this, this contentment. And he's the one also who made this famous statement. He said, What can my enemies do with me? My Paradise isn't my breath. It goes with me wherever I go, my killing. If they kill me, it's martyrdom. If they expel me from the land, it's tourism. And if they imprison me, it's solitude with my Lord. So tell me what can they do?

00:58:10--> 00:58:29

And so this contentment that people have where you actually love what a lot as we have decreased for you. It's a very high level, but it's a very sweet level. So I think that'd be walk us. He was a companion of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam one of the 10 were promised paradise, and he was known amongst the companions as someone who was Mr. Javid, our he had Mr. Javid, he,

00:58:30--> 00:58:33

when he would make it would manifest immediately.

00:58:34--> 00:58:38

It would just manifest immediately. The interesting thing is when he became elder, he went blind.

00:58:39--> 00:58:47

And so people asked a very rational question, you're blind? Why don't you ask a lie zoja to bring back your eyesight.

00:58:48--> 00:58:50

So side of the line, who he said by Allah,

00:58:52--> 00:58:58

me being pleased with what Allah has decreed for me is more beloved to me,

00:58:59--> 00:59:01

than for me to seek out my desire.

00:59:04--> 00:59:05

It's very powerful.

00:59:06--> 00:59:09

For me, to be pleased with what Eliza has decreed for me is more beloved to me than that.

00:59:11--> 00:59:37

They have this contentment even with the trials and the tribulations that they have. They go through in their lives. So the name is Sara indicates the law as it is free from all perfections in every attribute, and every name that you hear, and as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said alignment is surrounding an antibiotic totality the gelato electron or LA urs Sarah and from USA Salaam baalak Tata it to our the source of Baraka and you are far above everything else. Yeah, there gela 11 o'clock.

00:59:38--> 00:59:39

Allah Hi, listen.

00:59:42--> 00:59:46

Thank you for I think we went a little bit long today. Just look at everybody.

00:59:47--> 00:59:50

If you have any questions, let me know. Otherwise we're pretty much done.

00:59:54--> 00:59:55

Okay, sorry.
