When I hear Oh
Please allow salatu salam ala rasulillah whether it be sending to semen kitsilano
operations due to Allah we seek His guidance and his forgiveness and we seek refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves and the whispering of our desires whom a lot of guys no one can misguide. And whom he allows to be misled. No one can guide and I bear witness that there is nothing worthy of worship except a lot alone having no partners, and that will allow it to send them it's asleep in his messenger in his perfect worshiper. So we've been going over the names of Allah now for a couple of weeks. We've gotten started with a lot about a man or a him and medic and medic and medic and produce a Salaam Minh and Mohammed.
Al Aziz al Jabbar and Mata Kabir Kabir at hardaker. Holla.
Holla tiene Raza? No, we didn't do that. Albury solver a lot of far a lot of for to offer. And now we come to alcohol. So alcohol,
alcohol, also alcohol. These two names are similar to each other. And what a pothead means is the overpowering. So alcohol or alcohol is the overpowered he's the one that subjugates everything else. And everyone else I hate is mentioned in the course
of the verses in which I'll call here is mentioned the sort of an arm verse 18. Or a law says Well, well, I hope everybody who had Hakeem Mojave Allah says and he is the subjugated over his servants and he is the wise acquainted with all so he is the overpowering. And a lot as it just says in another verse, a whole hydrophone array by the way you see ya come have
to come in mode. First Hello, Solana Rasulullah, whom Allah. Allah says, and he is the subject matter over his servants and he sends over you guardian angels Until when death comes to one of you. Our Messengers take him and they don't fail in their duties. So Allah as again is overpowering in the dunya.
If he wasn't overpowering, we would all live forever. No one would choose to die. We wouldn't get sick. We
Wouldn't suffer calamities, but a loss will overpowers our will. And also on the Day of Judgment, it becomes even more apparent his power over us.
Allah says yo Mohamed his own life Allah him in him shake limini Mercurio de la vida.
Allah as he says, On the day of judgment, when they are going to be buddies, and they're going to be uncovered, they're going to be a parent everyone's going to be
everyone's going to be a parent in front of a lot as well. Like I
mean, like for aluminium shade, there's going to be nothing from Allah so yet that is hidden from them. Everyone is going to be naked in every sense of the term. They're going to be uncovered in every sense of the term. And Allah azza wa jal will then say the man in mukilteo, to who belongs the kingdom today to who belongs the power today to who belongs the dominium. Today, Lila, hahahahaha, to Allah azzawajal, the alone, the one, the overpowering. And remember, we talked about these two names, why they're paired together? Why is you know the pairing of the names of Allah as we get on, they denote another meaning. So each name denotes a meaning. But then when the names are paired
together, another meaning is created. So what is the meaning that's created from Allah? Allahu Allah, the alone, the overpowering? What do you guys think?
A lot as though that doesn't need anyone else. So I become powerful, not when I'm by myself. But when I've got six of my friends with me, or when I've got an army with me, or when I've got a police force with me, or when I have a weapon with me, right? So I'm not powerful in and of myself, or I become more powerful. When I have something else to add to my power, however, allies is not powerful because of his angels, and allies, not powerful or strengthened by any of his creation, a lot as we did on the Day of Judgment. And in this world, he is alive, He is a Baja, he is the alone, he is the overpowering the prevailing, and of the meanings of a baja or a car here is that a law as of yet
resurrects us, without our choice, and we're presented to him for the account. If any one of us were to have the option about whether to experience the day of judgment or not to experience the Day of Judgment, we would pick what
not to experience it. You know, I'm a little hot dog used to say I wish I was like a piece of grass that is cast into the wind that is eaten by some animal and that's it.
But we have no choice with regards to it. Just like we have no choice with regards to the dying, we're going to die. And then we are going to be resurrected and presented to a la jolla. And so a laws will and his power over powers are as you want me to bet the alternator was semi water bottles with the law what the law says on the day where the Earth would be replaced by another earth and the heavens as well. And all of the creatures will come out come out before Allah azzawajal the one the overpowering or the prevailing?
And so how do I interact with this name of gohar? Well, one is I realized
that, you know, the pahat is a sobering attributes of God. It is one that reminds me to calm myself, when it comes to how long that I may be exposed to whether it's something that's available for me, whether it's some quick money, some fast cash that I might be able to make. And by fast, I mean, how long investment.
It's not worth it. Why because I'm going to be presented to alcohol, if not, right now, immediately, definitely in the future. Or if some temptation comes my way, and I have access to it, then I remember you know, this is like the pairing to last week we talked about the law of food and over foreign law as it is and mercy is so abundant. But at the same time ally Israel is the overpowering. At the same time, I should fear a lot. So I should be consciously, always conscious of allies realize that the law is overpowering. He is not someone who can be dominated by one to 1000 10,000 a million people a lot as yet prevails over everything and everyone and so that I act accordingly and
that I treat a lot as Odell accordingly, that I avoid what is presented to me of evil or that which Allah has, he doesn't like because of my knowledge that a lot as it is a so allows will over writes everything what I wanted to do with regards to this name of Gohan is I wanted to give you a moment to remember we talked at the beginning first session that we did. We talked about three ways,
or three meanings of the word ossoff or si the profits of the licen himself. He famously said in the Hadith, that Allah has 99 names 100 except for one man, the 100 and whoever does not have the
names will enter into paradise. And so we talked about a slot having three meanings. Yes.
Does anybody remember what they are?
understanding is one of them. So
the first verse, When you talk about understanding, you're talking about just figuring out what these names are. So a person from maybe today didn't know that a lot, one of the last names that Oh Ha, okay, now I learned something new. Right, I learned one of the names of a lot. And that's what we were supposed to do, we're supposed to try to figure out what these names are, or learn what these names are. So that's number one, is to learn what the names are, too. After I've learned the name, like I know a lot of mine are Rahim are
that I compile? Or that I memorize these names? I get them all.
Like Pokemon, right? I was gonna,
but it's like you try to catch them all you try to get them all right, you try to get all of the names of allies and you figure them out. Okay. And then the last is to do what
interact with them how
there are exactly that I call upon Allah has aided by these names. And so this whole point of us going through these names every single week, or whenever we do go over them, your draft shouldn't be the same. You should be figuring out alcohol or what's going on in my life that I can make up for using the name of a hot like there's one right now in my life and in your life. That instead of me just saying Oh Allah, please take care of this for me, that I say Oh Allah, please take care of this for me because you are a hot
that's what you're supposed to do with the names of Allah. Allah says woody Laila smell Christina. Further obeah Allah says to Him belong the Beautiful Names, so call upon him by those names. So I wanted to give you a moment to just think of something in your life that you want to ask a lot as a kid by the name of alcohol.
That's it. I'm giving you a minute.
It would be good to write it down.
If you needed a hint.
I want you guys to think of anything that's in your life. That
means the one who is overpowering. Maybe there's someone who's overpowering you with regards to something and you want to say Oh Allah, your power is above their power.
You're on a hot
there's someone that you need to do something. And you say, Oh Allah, you are alcohol. You override everybody.
okay, we're gonna do the same, I think it's a it's a good practice to do. Basically, with every name, we just take it for a minute, we figure out what we want to make dua for or plug this name into one of our drives and keep moving inshallah. So the next name is that we'll have
and this is a beautiful name of the names of a lot and we'll have means the store
the one who gifts, gi FTS, the one who gifts
at the store, I will be storing exactly the store. And it will have it's mentioned in the colon a number of times this name allows it just says it'll burn it out to the Kuru ban about data data. Now when I'm in the dome kurama in La cantera
sobre la Mr. The believer say Our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us and bestow upon us from you mercy, indeed you are the Restore. So one of the things that a lot bestows is is
a lot as again in another verse, he says, I'm in the home Hosea in Ramat, Arabic Allah zz.
Allah says, do they have the deposit the depositories of the mercy of your Lord? Do they have access to the depositories of the mercy of your Lord? And Aziz? Aziz is the mighty, I will have the best store. Now, why do you think these two names are paired? And Aziz the powerful the mighty Aloha, the one who bestows What do you guys think?
very good. So the one who's mighty advisees. He's the one who can bestow he can get very good. Anything else? Any other thoughts?
Verse says, or do they have the depositories of the mercy of your Lord the Exalted in Might this store
the depositories of the mercy of your Lord, the
Exalted in Might the Restore
anything come to mind?
Everybody agrees with Islam.
Yeah. Okay, that's fine. I'll just say
He said the mighty allies are good because he's mighty he has access to grant to everything is that which is that? Pretty much right? He can grant access to everything allows you access to everything
so he's saying that some people think that they have it all in the law has agendas basically pointing that they they don't and not a lot.
Allah azza wa jal, he says in another verse, Colorado fairly heavily milk and I am buddy I had him embody in Napa and
he said and this is today Amanda drives today man that we talked about last week. He said, Oh my Lord, forgive me and bestow upon me a kingdom that will not belong to anyone else after me. You are the Bestower he said, My Lord, forgive me and grant me a kingdom. This is Sudan or Solomon. bestow for me a kingdom that no one will ever have after me You are the Restore. And a lot closer yet in another verse, he says, Well, I talked to him in Colima, ultimo who introduced amatola he last saw her in an insane a lava La Mancha. Just the fact that the notion that Allah has yet He bestows, and He bestows, and He bestows and He grants and He grants and He grants. And we are all every single
one of us and we don't have to know each other and any single person that you see 7 billion people on earth, every single one of them is immersed in the blessings of Allah. No matter what their story is, they are absolutely drowning in the blessings of Allah.
They just don't see it one time.
who was with me, we were going to an AI Ha.
I forget which area this was in. But it was a dark area in Houston. And
I had, I was with Jeff Woody, then another brother, but they had already gone in. So I met them. I parked my car. The parking lot was dark, I parked my car. And there was a guy sitting in the shadows. This guy was sitting in the darkness, okay.
Just so I saw him in the corner of my eye, and then I was like, let me just go and lock my car. So I want to lock my car. And then as I'm walking, he's walking towards me. So he sees me and he says, Hey, man, are you Muslim?
And I go, yeah, Muslim.
And then he says, I want to give you something and he starts reaching into his bag. I'm like, What is this guy reaching for?
So he says,
and then he pulls out this super colored
hat, okay. He's like, I was in jail. And I just got out of jail. And this guy had tattoos all over his face. And he said, I just got out of jail. And
I made this in prison. He wasn't Muslim. He said, I made this in prison. And I want you to have it.
I said, Okay, thank you.
I went inside. So then I told I told you about it. And the brother that was with us, and it was Haytham, actually, so then they were like, give the guy like, $5 go back out there and give him $5. So I went back out, I gave him I said, No, I have to give this to you stuff like that. And he said, No, man, I can't take it. He said, I am drowning in the blessings of God.
I was like, What are you talking about? He's like, I just got out of prison. I spend the night under this bridge right here. The cops, they don't bother me. They know I keep the area clean. And I just got a job. I've been praying and praying and praying and I just got a job today to be a dishwasher. And I'm so excited about it. And he's basically saying hamdulillah like, I am so happy with my life right now.
And honestly, like Allahu Akbar,
this man is so excited. And he's so happy. He's living under a bridge.
But he's keeping it clean. And he doesn't he's not accepting any money. He's like, what do I want your money for? What I need your $5 for I'm absolutely content with what Allah has given me. And not only that, Allah has given me so much.
Right? So if you were to count the blessings of Allah, you wouldn't be able to count it. Look at what Allah says these two verses are similar to one another, almost identical. Okay. Listen to this. Allah says, Well, I talked to him in Colima, ultimo we're into dounia mata la isla de Souza in Santa Monica. He says he gave you from all that you asked him. And if you were to count the favor of Allah, you couldn't be able to count them. Indeed, mankind is voluminous level.
lumen kuffaar he is most unjust and ungrateful. That person who's complaining about oh my god, my life is horrible. I hate my life. That person Allah says, if you were to count the blessings of God on you, you wouldn't be able to count them. Mankind has two characteristics. They are oppressive. They are ungrateful. This is the default with regards to humanity.
This is a famous verse you've probably all of you have probably heard it from, from before. But this verse is actually mirrored by another verse. This verse happens twice. Well, what does the second verse say? Allah says, we're doing, Allahu Allah.
Allah says, if you were to count and try to enumerate the favours of a law, you wouldn't be able to count it and then a lot of talks about himself.
He says in the law of rural writing,
he says Allah azza wa jal love the same lamb that used for emphasis level Luca for Allah says,
As if Allah as a jet is saying that the only way that anyone can deal with this ungrateful species called humanity, and all of their lack of gratitude and all of their oppressiveness
is if that Lord has the characteristics of being a full blown,
overlooking so much and forgiving even more. The angels when Allah God created Adam, and he said he was going to create them. There's a I think, Alfie Herman used to do here which we could demo Are you going to make on this earth? Those who are going to create corruption on this earth and spill blood?
Like what are these creatures that you're going to make?
And Allah says, I know what you don't know. The prophets of the lightest and and he says about Allah.
Akbar, Allah, Allah, Allah, there is no one who is more patient with harm that he hears than Allah.
There is no one who is more patient with harm that he hears, then Allah as though he did it their own Allah who
see him we are super home, they ascribed to Allah a son.
And he continues to give them health, and he continues to give them well,
Oh, c'mon castle, the lightest and there is no one who can deal with that level of ingratitude. There is no one who can deal or is more patient with all of the blessings that he gives to his creator, creation, and then gives them general guidelines here, here's the gift of sight, here's the gift of hearing.
Use it for all that you want. But don't look at these particular things. Or don't listen to these particular things or avoid with your tongue, these particular statements, and then humanity turns around and says, but there's no fun in anything but these particular statements, and looking at these particular things, and listening to this particular whatever it is, in Alaska in Santa Lucia, for humanity is oppressive, and they are
ungrateful. Now, if a person were to count all of their blessings, we're talking about a lot as being a little hub.
Say a person is able to account for all of their breaths, their cells, and everything that takes place in them say they were able to encompass all of the meals that they've ever experienced and ever enjoyed. They ever ate. Maybe they were able to quantify concepts like family and friendship and love. They're able to quantify these things. How would you still be able to
quantify, quantify blessings that come in the form of harms that a lot as we did directed away from you?
Those are in the 1000s and the millions and the billions. Every single one of us,
every single one of us,
had we made different choices, or other people around us made different choices, our lives would be drastically different. Yes, you're stopping at a red light. But your safety depends on the person behind you looking up before they stopped texting, right? Or a person across from you deciding not to run that red, right or to not drink and drive and we are all at the mercy of everybody around us and their choices. And how many times there's no way for you to know really, how Allah azzawajal protects you in every single day from harm. And hence, remember even hotter below the line who when a calamity did strike him. He would say every time a calamity would strike me. I would be thankful
for four things. The first is that that calamity was not in my religion. It's a calamity in my health. It's a calamity in my wealth. It's a calamity with the roads. Anything else. As long as it's not in my Deen.
That's a good thing. That's a plus.
The second is that it wasn't greater.
I lost the child. I didn't lose them all. Could have been greater. I became sick. I could have had a worse sickness could have been greater that it wasn't
Greater the perspective that he has. The third is he says that
Islam, Rama, Buddha being that I am, I wasn't prevented from being
content with that
calamity. So Mr. de la who realizes that in that moment where he's able to be content with the calamity, that this is a great blessing from allies, that a lot granted him suffered, and that our law granted him law. And the forest is what is just so into it, that I hope to be rewarded for this calamity.
Have no claim is that sometimes Allah as we did desire is a place in paradise for a person.
But that person's actions aren't enough to bring him there. So Allah will then cast a calamity in the direction of that person. You know, Allah wants a person to have a certain level in Paradise, but you know what, they're not really big on fasting Mondays and Thursdays and three days a month and all of that they don't do that. And they don't pray more than they're for it. And they don't give more than theirs.
They're just not about extra worship, but along wants this person to be there. So how does that person get there? Allah sends a calamity their way, in their health or in their family or in their wealth. Not in their Deen because they need their Deen. But Allah azza wa jal test that person, and then He grants that person patience.
And through that patience, they ascend to the level that allows your desire for that person. Right. And so some of us, we arise in our rankings because of our patients because of our calamities. So I'm on the line says, I hope to be rewarded during these calamities, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in a soda that's dedicated to him. Allah as he just says, what will lady either Mauer dakara buco malerkotla with a hero to hydrolock Amina una this school is a beautiful sort of that the province of the light is it the suit is dedicated to those who have lost the lightest in them. And in it Allah as we just mentioned some of the blessings that the prophet SAW the light I sent him
experience. So he says now a darker blue kumbhakarna
as the law says, Let me look at my for our did he find you to be an orphan?
And he took care of you?
Weren't you an orphan, you know, the orphans are the weakest in society. Children in general are the weakest in society. But
you know, they have their parents to protect them, to nurture them to provide for them. But when an orphan or when a child doesn't have
the protective care of their parents, how we can how frail is that child? The province of the lightest in him was an orphan. And a lot so just says did he find you an orphan he took care of you. He's the one who raised you. He's the one who provided for you. Or did the Cabal and for Haida he found you uninformed you didn't know how to worship a lot. You didn't have revelation, he guided you.
In an alternate And He found you destitute, he enriched you the profits of the miners and
he was enriched by Allah xojo. He had access to wealth, he had access to all he was rich, not in the sense that he lived a luxurious life but he had access to wealth. The prophets on the lighter send them would distribute the prophets, I send them on the day of Hajj, he sacrificed the 100 camels, he distributed all of the profits on the line to set it up. He would say that if I wish that I would have a mountain to a to an amount in size of gold, and that I would distribute all of it, except for three pieces of gold that I would keep for myself. I shadow the law and how she says that three months would go by
and a fire would not be kindled in the house of the Prophet cellulitis. And then three months three months would go by 123 you know what a fire not being kindled in the house of the Prophet civilize and it means it means that he's not eating cooked food.
He's not eating cooked food, no means nothing for three months. The only thing that he's eating are dates and water, dates and water and I show the line he calls them the two black things. Now is water black.
Water black. Why does he call it the black thing? And I saw that
because water can be blood? Yes.
I mean, yes, if you're drinking 99.9% purified
Zuko or whatever you're in Texas. We're good. It's called Poland springs as aka or whatever. Such a weird brand. But if you're drinking that, right, it's 100% clear you're like what my waters clean. But if you're drinking water that's coming from the bottom of a well, or you're drinking water that doesn't have any of these pure purifying gum mechanisms. Yeah, water can be muddy. water can be murky and water can be dark. So I shall be lying, saying that's what the prophets otherwise enemies to drink. And that's what he used to eat. I don't want him to hop out of the line who enters upon the house of the prophets unless enemy enters into his room.
He finds nothing in the room except for a map that is so harsh. There's no king size bed fertile soul lesson and there's no fluffy pillows. He finds a harsh mat that when he would lie on it, there was
markings on his side. And Roman himself as powerful as a character is he is as strong as a man as he is. He began to weep. He says out of sort of Lidl kiss a lion, who is a Persian room, they're living in this luxury, and you're living like this, you're the Messenger of God. And he says, oh, Omar, Aren't you satisfied? Aren't you content? That for them is the dunion for us is that
for us is this for them is this world and for them, for us? for them is this world and for them, is the hereafter?
So Allah as he just says, Would you like a bottle and Fido to the guy and then Allah says, familia team of Allah.
Allah says, asked for the orphan.
Don't oppress them, just like you were an orphan.
And we provided for you and we took care of you.
When you come across an orphan or Mohammed, Salah, leidos Allah, and everybody else who's from the home of Mohammed symbolizes that do not oppress the orphan. Don't debase that province, the lightest, and instead of the most honored house, in the houses of the Muslims is a house in which an orphan is respected and honored.
And the worst houses in the houses of the Muslims, is a house in which an orphan is humiliated.
What a masala for that. And as for the one who is asking, don't repel them, don't be harsh to them, don't rebuke them, Latin hub, just like you were bought for her that you were ignorant at some point in time, and a lot as they'll get taught you. When you have access to knowledge now, and you have been given information, when that person comes to ask you a question. Don't be arrogant towards them.
Don't Don't belittle them. Don't tell them that their question is stupid.
There was a time where you didn't know. And a lot as it gave you that information Allah has taught you. And so you thank Allah as a gift for that blessing by doing the same for other people, or if Allah as we get has enriched you? Or did the guy in a manner that Maasai forgotten how the person who comes to ask you for material sustenance, or spiritual sustenance, in the form of a question about the religion, that you don't turn them away harshly? If you have you answer it beautifully, or you give beautifully, and if you don't have that you turn them away beautifully, and with respect and with dignity.
The poor have
a right to
the poor have a right to our wealth. This is part of thankfulness to Allah azza wa jal, who gifts in bestows upon us, the week have a right regarding our strength, those who are unable have a right with regards to our ability, and those who have ignorance have a right towards our knowledge. And so out of my thankfulness to Allah,
I give everyone their right as best as I can. Everyone has a right regarding something that they can't do, and something that you can do. So being thankful for a lot as a gift for bestowing upon you what he didn't bestow on other people, and make it part of your thankfulness, that you direct a portion of what Allah has given you, to others. And remember that every blessing will eventually leave you, every blessing is going to eventually leave you either, it's going to leave you first, or eventually you're going to leave it but there's no blessing that stays with his partner forever. And
finally, with regards to Allah will have, and blessings, there are so many blessings that we never even think about.
And if any of our brothers or sisters who work in health, or they're their doctors, or nurses or physical therapists, or what have you, they were to sit there and tell us and talk to us about how our body functions and all of the things that are involved in US simply, you know, getting up and doing what we normally do every single day without thinking about it, we'd be amazed. And when you add to that the blessings of a family of, of relatives have passions of dreams of talents, of, of respect, even the respect that a person has the fact that when you go somewhere people you know want to shake your hand or they want to hear what you have to say. Or you know, they're kind to you, this
is all from the risk of Allah as diligent. So this is
what I wanted to share with regards to it will have
it's important that we reflect on the blessings that Allah bestows on us. And we reflect on our level of appreciation for the blessings that Allah has has given us. And that we remember that every blessing that Allah gives us there is a right that's associated with that blessing. So part of thankfulness is to simply say, and hamdulillah you know, the prophets of Allah
Sam says that a lot as we did, he loves that when a person eats or when they drink that they said hamdulillah that I just recognized that this food or drink, I'm not better than millions of people who are living on less than $1 a day. I'm not better than them in any single way that the only difference is that a lot put me in a position where I can spend $30 on a meal or $20 on a meal or $100 on a meal. And he made other people from his slaves we may prefer over us not be able to eat anything except for dates and water. Right or even less than that. So being thankful to Allah so yeah, so we conclude with that and I just want to give you guys a minute as well to think of a way
that you can make to Allah azza wa jal with regards to your life that involves the word Aloha, Aloha, the one who bestows what is something that you wish that you desire that you need to be bestowed upon you by Aloha.
There are a lot of beautiful daughters in the Quran By the way, they use the word Allah What have you heard the draft today man? That's something
I was gonna say that's something that you can say but you're not gonna get it
because it was only for today man. But I've been allowed to Sakuraba Nevada Dayton Ohio and I mean
that's a beautiful day Oh our Lord
do not make our hearts slip after you've guided us and that's a really consistent die that we all need to make. What have you done I mean Luca Rama and grant us bestow upon us from yourself mercy in the country will have you are the AppStore
you guys are good with it.
Okay, so the last one inshallah Tada. We're going to go over is
also a Razak and Hill recipe. Hey, Raja ki.
rezac means the provider.
Razak means the continuous provider. Razak means the provider hierarchy means the best of providers.
So Allah you mentioned that in sort of the variac, Allah says in Allah horizontal quwata Mateen. Allah says, Indeed, Allah is the continual provider, the firm, possessor of strength.
And that's right after the sequence were allies, I guess, as well. I'm not hung up to Genoa, in Italia Buddha, the famous verse where Allah says, I have not created the jinn and mankind except to do what?
To worship me. That's the only reason people just think about this. There are 7 billion people on this earth, half of them are really concerned with Why are they here? Maybe less than half? But people have this question, Well, why am I here? What's the purpose of life? And you as a Muslim has just delivered to you? This is what the purpose of life is about Hanukkah denote insignia with a simple equation. Simple.
I am here to worship God. That's why I'm here. But then it becomes well worship. That seems like very robotic. Are you telling me that you're here? 24 hours a day, seven days a week for 70 years or whatever? To just worship God? And we say to them, no, well, yes. But worship isn't just rituals. Worship in Islam is encompassing and compass says everything that God loves is worship. Okay? So Allah says, we've created mankind and the jinn except to worship me not What do you mean? You mean, humorist? What do you do? And Allah says, I have no desire of risk from them. I'm not asking them to provide me with anything. I don't benefit anything from them. Why not? What are you doing your to
remove? I don't want them to feed me. There's nothing there's no benefit that will come from our worship of Allah as the widget. And then Allah says, I'm the one who provides for them. They don't provide for me, I provide for them in the law. What is up? Timothy? Allah is the provider, the possessor of firm strength.
Now, why is our reserve and we'll call and Mateen pair together.
What do you guys get? Zach? He's the provider. And he's the one who's the possessor of firm strength.
someone other than Osama
I didn't say anybody I just said yes. For whoever feels.
Okay, no, you can't say yesterday. He said he's not compelled to provide Okay, very good. I like that.
By the way, I'm not saying that I have a right answer here. I'm just asking you guys.
Okay? I mean, it's your own reflections, little qulity Mateen. So I like that That's beautiful. So a lot as a result he's providing and Allah is the possessor of strength, you're not going to bully a lion to providing for you a lot provides out of his own will completely. That's very beautiful. Exactly. Okay, what else do you guys get?
Okay, so you need strength to provide. So here we have a lot as it is the provider because he is the reporting machine. He is strong, and he has the ability to provide and he is the greatest provider. He's failed resolutely, and because he is the strongest he's able to provide for everyone. Yes. What else? I'm expecting something like genius to come out of this UN General Assembly meeting that you guys are having no. Yes. Oh, you are raising your hand.
Okay, you're scratching your head. Okay.
Pedraza ting comes in five verses. As for one of the verses. I'm DeSoto. Home. How to Jennifer Hi. rajala Becca. Hi, hi, Rosa teen. Allah says do you ask them for payment? meaning how much will I send them? Do you ask them for payment, but the reward of your Lord is best and he is the best of providers.
So there are some people who are providers, but a lot as human beings, they provide for one another yes or no. Your parents provide for you.
People provide for each other.
But allies and he says he is hailed as a painter. He is the greatest of providers. He is the creator of the person and a law as soon as the creator of the of the instrument. He's the creator of the person. He's the creator of the instrument through which they seek the artist.
And he's the creator of the disc itself. So he's the creator of everything,
every step along the process of acquiring risk. Now there are two types of risk. The first type of risk is general risk. This is risk that befalls and is experienced by everyone in everything. All of his creatures allies provides for a loss as well mom and dad battenfeld illa, Allah is Allah says and there is no creature on earth, but that upon Allah is its provision. So Allah has engendered provides for the worms and this the fish in the sea and a lot provides for the birds and law provides for everything and anything. However many billion insects there are a lot as it provides for that mosquito that bites you at night. That is all provided for allies by allies.
even those who believe are those who disbelieve a lot provides for all of humanity. The same with regards to this regard. Ibrahim I didn't set up says in his dad that's recorded in sort of Bukhara Allah Ibrahim says with Khalid Rahim Allah
had a better than Amina was a Home Minister, Marathi man and a man whom Bella lumen acid Otto Mankato material Kareena Matata hula Davina will be semasa when Abraham said My Lord, make this a secure city and provides people with fruits, whoever of them believes in Allah and the Last Day and whoever disbelieves I will grant him Allah says, and whoever disbelieves to Madison on his part is all my Lord, bless the people of this town and make this a place that secure granted to people fruits, whoever then believes in Allah and the Last Day, Allah says that's done. As for those who disbelieve material, Kareena Don't worry, I'm gonna take care of them too for now. Tomato, hula
Davina and then after that I will force him to the punishment of the Fire and wretched is that a destination So Allah is saying everybody's going to be provided for in this earthly experience. And then after that, the believers will be rewarded with paradise and those who disbelieve will be rewarded with the hellfire. So that's a general risk that all of our lives creatures experience, then you have a specific risk. And this specific risk is for who take a guess.
Let me see under my breath so I can hear it and everybody else kind of here is just a general murmuring.
That's all I'm hearing I'm hearing on
So that is the risk of a man. That's the risk of of belief in Allah as of yet and knowing a lot as well and righteous actions. That's all it is. Allah as we just says, Yeah, you have NASA scudo Yamato Lucha de
Hellman, hydroquin Raphael la here's akumina sama will argue that La la
la as well as the provider, Allah says, all mankind remember the favor of your Lord upon you. Is there any creator other than Allah who provides for you from the heavens and the earth? There is no deity except for him. So how are you diluted? And another verse, Allah says Pullman, your zoko Minister, Mr. Minister, Mr. Padilla we're in our community
Hello fellow Aladdin movie, say who provides for you from the heavens and the earth, say Allah. And indeed We are you are either upon guidance or in clear error. And so contemplating this name
makes a person completely dependent on a lot as a reason alone, they realize that whatever it is that I desire, what I want what I'm seeking to, to actualize. It's in the hands of alized origin. And if I were to knock on every door,
the mom's door, the CEO of the company's door, send out 50 100 resumes, I talked to 1000 people with regards to doing this, I get a petition signed with 500 1000 2000 100,000 people, I do all of that. And I get the support of everyone. If I don't get the support of allies, though, yet, it's not happening.
It's just not.
And so the private civil ally to send them says, if that's the first any law, if you were to ask the national,
and if you are to seek the help of anyone, seek the help of Allah. And then the prophet SAW Sam says, know that if an entire nation were to get together to help you with something, they wouldn't be able to help you. It's something something that a lot as it has already been for you and if an entire nation were to get together to harm you, they wouldn't be able to harm you, except the fertilizer jet has already written for you. So
recognizing that Allah azza wa jal is the one who all of the hearts of the world are in his head. He's the one who controls everything. That doesn't mean that I don't send out resumes and I don't go and knock on people's doors and I don't go and I work, I recognize that all of that are means that Allah as we get has placed on this earth. So I fulfill all of the means I don't just sit at home and do nothing. But my heart the entire time is not attached to if I just get this one meeting with this guy, it's going to happen.
That's not where my heart is attached to my heart is attached to who so alive. And that's why the prophets of the Lyceum says in a powerful Heidi, he says, lo turkleton. Allah, if you really depended on a lot, as he deserves to be depended on.
He would have provided for you like he provides for the birds.
They leave their nest in the morning hungry.
And they return for
now, the birds, the showerhead here, the point is that the birds, the prophecy services, they depend on the law beautifully. But the birds don't just sit in their nests, waiting for the food to drop from the sky. They go out early, and they spend their entire day looking for food. But then they always come back for. Okay, so you're fulfilling with your body, you're fulfilling all of the actions that are required for you to actualize success. But your heart during the entire time is connected to a lot as well. And it is asking a lot. And it's not depending on any of these means because you could go through all of these means and not acquire what you want to acquire. Okay?
to reflect on risk is also to reflect on the power of a law. When you think of the crocodile,
the crocodile that can eat a cow, right eats all of these huge animals and it swallows it whole. And then the crocodile after it's done eating, it goes on to like the river bank, and it gets some sun because it's hot. And then you see this little bird
fly into the mouth of the crocodile.
And then it starts eating from the teeth of the crocodile and the crocodiles just sitting there with its dangerous jaws open.
And they have this understanding. It's so strange when you watch it.
Lots of birds, they just come forgot what the called a pullover.
It just goes in and sits there and it's just pecking away at the teeth of the crocodile. It's like cleaning the teeth of the crocodile. And then it leaves.
And you see that a lot as we did made the risk of this bird. Like how masterful is this he made the disk of the bird in the jaws of the crocodile
to show you the power of the risk of Allah has no idea that he will, it will come from different angles, it'll come from dangerous places. But if a lot as a doctor writes it then
anywhere you go, or anywhere it is written to come from it can come to you beautifully and safely. Even if it's dangerous for everyone else, that's the power of the risk of lies in the control of Allah.
So the risk of Eliza dead is great and we're almost done. The risk of Eliza is it's great, you know of it is is health and an intellect. You know, just the intelligence that you have your ability to comprehend
the food and the drink obviously that you have children you know wealth, beauty, youth personality, inspiration, even your personalities that is from Allah as we do. You know, would you trade personalities with somebody else?
Are there some people whose personalities you would definitely not take on
Yes, right. And so that's proof to you right there that oh my goodness, Allah blessed me with this personality. He made me so cool like he just
and I mean that's that's risk that was from Eliza
even that is just a man once came to a stage he came to a Hakeem.
And he was complaining to him about hajer he was complaining to him that he needed stuff. It's just like, I need I need I need I need. So then the sage said to him, this eyesight of yours would you sell it to me for 100,000? The amount so say $100,000? Would you sell this to me? It's like no.
Either. What about your, your hearing? Would you sell it to me for 100,000? He goes, No.
Okay, what about your sense of smell? You don't need that. How about your nose? 100,000 He goes, No. Your hands? I need those hats. 100,000 I can't take my hands. Your feet that
100,000 He goes, No. He just kept mentioning different things. He kept saying, No, I gotta give it to you for 100,000 What do you mean? No, no, no, no, he said, I see that you're a walking millionaire.
And you're complaining to me about NEET.
Like, what would you What would you sell any of these things that you have? These are all blessings from Eliza, you drink water. You breathe air. You walk on your feet, you hear with your ears, you see with your eyes, you understand with your intellect
you feel with your heart. All of these are blessings from Allah that He gets. And if you were to count them, you wouldn't be able to count them. So we respond to this with thankfulness. Because thankfulness is what keeps it is present. Allah says if you are thankful, I will increase you. And so we respond to that with thankfulness. And the best of risk is that which brings tranquility and happiness to the province, the light of the sun, and he says in a beautiful Hadith, he's talking about his wife Khadija who had long paths, he says in your zip code.
I was provided
her love or any roses.
I was provided with love for her either way, depending on how you read it. But the province of I sent him is looking at this love that he experienced between him and his wife. And he sees that as a two that came to him from allies. Because a person can have
a relationship with someone that isn't the same and how beautiful is it when something that is a risk that is brought to you his love of someone who's as deserving of it as cloud digital the line is because you could be someone like Mitch, no Layla, you just fall in love with some random person in the street. And you have all of this passion towards them, and they're not deserving of it. But love is blind. That's why the phrase is Love is blind. Right? And so the prophet SAW sent him saying like, this is a beautiful blessing that came to me that I was given this intense emotion to somebody who's so deserving of a lot. So last to conclude is one minute. Zack, what is something that you can
ask for from a law as I said by the name, address, or hailed as a lead or advisor?
What a smart way to snap to a live along with the most beautiful name so call upon him by
otherwise, if there are any questions
we'll take them otherwise we're done Jonathan.
Panic along the line to stop recording.
