although we'll do we'll do.
Labor family law allow slots salam ala Rasulillah audio cyber since the McCarthy era. So before we begin just wanted to review quickly, what we covered last week so we spoke about under smart personnel, the names and attributes of Allah azza wa jal, the importance of getting to know these names. And speaking on the importance of getting to know these names. There's a particular Hadith that's very famous. That speaks about the importance of the names of Allah azza wa jal Does anybody remember what it was?
the names of Allah azza wa jal, there's a hadith it's really well known not to make anybody feel bad or anything.
Everybody knows it, okay?
It's a very it's a very popular Hadith on the, the virtue of knowing the names of Allah azza wa jal. He says to a lot belong how many names? 99? Yeah, Illa Haida, right 100, except for one, whoever does
slot Manasseh the halogen. He says Whoever does this word slot, which we talked over some of the meanings of it last week, that person will enter into paradise right. And so he said, I saw it last week has three meanings. The scholar is different 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 sloth trying to figure out what those names are. The second was to do what we're trying to do here
now, which is to understand what these names mean, what does the man mean? What does Allah 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 ask Allah by these names, that you call upon a lie by these names. So that you are asking Allah for something and you are using the appropriate name for that. It increases your manners with Allah as Georgia. You know, the greatest example of manners with Allah azza wa jal 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 Allah and II 70 Maryam on the Day of Judgment. Allah azza wa jal says Surah Tenma Ada, who is called Allah Who ya Isa, when Allah says, Oh, it isa and takle telling us did you tell the people to take me and my mother as gods besides Allah? Is that what you said? You told everybody Hey, Worship Me and worship my mom. Is that what you did? And then Sid said I'm will reject categorically, you'll say Subhana. Far absolves Are you from these imperfections?
I had no right to say so. I would not say something that I had no right.
In quintupled who forgot the alimta, if I had said that you would have known it Dynamo Murphy enough, see what I don't want my enough six. I know what you know what I conceal.
And I don't know what you can see in the canta Allama, who you You are the Knower of the unseen. And then isa 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 Adam home, in Ahmedabad. He says If you punish these people for saying what they said, they are your slaves, they're your servants. They're your creation
will interfere Allah home and if you are to forgive them in NACA until it is it hacky, you are al Aziz, you, you are the mighty and you are the wise. Now the question is, Lisa is saying I didn't he said um, if you are to have if you are to forgive them,
then you are the mighty and the wise. Now if you are invoking forgiveness, wouldn't you say you are unlovable, right?
Isn't that what you would say? You would say we're into philosophy in a country lawful right? Right. But then the question is why doesn't he say that why does he say in Naka antitheism hockey you are the mighty and you are the wise? Why does he pick the appropriate name
like what's the what's the thought process? He wants to take a shot Yes.
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 forgives 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,
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?
even though they have transgressed so he's smart enough to where
and then are wise.
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 there.
apart and the other takers
on why these ideas that I'm using that particular phrasing were mentioning this with regards to when you are invoking Allah azza wa jal when you understand the meanings of these words you are better able to ask and increases your edit with Allah azza wa jal your manners with Allah yeah
so it's not this no
okay so Allah as soon as the Mighty No one's gonna force his hand, alright and Allah 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
on the day of judgment on the Day of Judgment is Allah as a girl happier is Allah angry on the Day of Judgment?
Monday said I'm in the long hadith of Shiva, when the people come up to him and they say, intercede. Start the day of judgment. I said, I'm gonna 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 Judgment. This is the day that we were promised. And so at least it is set up in those moments. It's like, for example, when you have a person who is absolutely just and fair and kind and merciful and things like that. And on the day where they have been wronged and they finally
are seeking retribution. And that person who they're seeking retribution from
is completely wrong. And they are right to be punished. And you come in between them. And you're like, oh, just forget.
It's like 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 Allah Allah yet in this creation. On that day, his job and other with Allah as we get to dictates that he stepped away from being in between Allah Azza Jinan anyone and to place himself firmly on the side of Allah azza wa jal.
I'm not I'm not in between you and anybody.
If you punish them, they belong to you, if you forgive them, it's out of your own mind. And it is 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 whites. And so knowing the names of Allah azza wa jal increases your mannerisms with Allah Azza 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
and then medic has three names that are all related to each other. The first is an medic, the second is Al Malik, and the third is an Malik. So you have Malik, you have Malik, and you have Malik. And all three of them are in the Quran. As for an medic, it's in Sawtell hash or Allah Allah says who hola hola de la ilaha illa who I'll medical producer salaam minion Mohammed Aziz Bucha bolometer Kabir. So a bunch of names are all listed and Al Malik is one of them. Also, it's unsalted Fattah Allah as your yeses and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Rahman Al Rahim, Maliki yo Medina and another citation, Maliki Yomi. De. So Malik has mentioned that in Surah Fatiha it's also mentioned the surah
NAS where Allah Allah says Allah although there have been nurse Maliki nurse Illa hiddenness.
Just a quick tangent salata, Nas and salted fat have come full circle. So you have so little Nasser, Allah says that hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen
sorry Surah NAS how it goes, how how does it go?
I was just checking color. Oh, the Philippine nurse Maliki nurse Ilahi. Nurse, right. So so the first Hagos are Hamdu lillahi. So you have Rob, you have Malik you have isla. Then you have source of fat how that goes and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Rahman Al Rahim Malik Yomi de right the same the same word. Muhammad din er cannot go to a yeah can stay you alone do we worship they're basically saying you are a law you alone do we worship and You
Alone we seek for help. So between the 500 sort of the NAS you have this beautiful circle between the Quran, Allah as he just says medic in Surah that Hashem and sort of the nurse, Allah Allah says medic in Medic Unit Dean also in sort of idea I'm Ron Allah. As he says Padilla Houma medical milk, team will come into sharp buttons, it will 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 rest goes on. So how is Allah as milk and also al Malik, Allah as they're just as in a
Matakana future, nothing went up. female goddess, it's clean and the Maliki Moqtada. Allah says that the believers are going to be in Jannat, they're going to be in gardens went out and rivers. And this verse, this next verse, to me is completely untranslatable. It's just the vivid imagery that it paints, I don't know how you can possibly translate it in English. So that's pretty much it sytropin In the Malik in Moqtada, in a
place of truth, in the Malik in with a Malik a possessor of ability or a possessor of ownership with great ability.
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, Allah's kingdom, as compared to everybody else's, and Allah has ownership compared to everybody else's. 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 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 Allah azza wa jal is 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 places themselves, they are limited in their kingdom. The second is their time.
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 tried to dig it again, I got arrested for it. Well, how come because it's the the ownership has transferred, however, the ownership of Allah so it doesn't transfer ever, Allah 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.
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.
The greatest of them, you know, sometimes you think about these, these kings that lived hundreds of years ago with 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 in, they still don't have the level of delusion that was afforded to the old kings, like the old kings had it
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. So the owner would simply say a little boom, we're
I am your lord the most Hi.
Hey, Egypt, don't you see that all of you belong to me. And these rivers flow underneath my feet.
The nama route, who says Ibrahim Ali Salam says to him My Lord creates life and brings death and he says, Oh, I do that too. I know who 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 enslave their populations
And usurped their wealth and had access to everything that they that they could have desired or could have imagined it was said about fit our own, that Allah azza wa jal extended his pleasure so much in in his life that he never ever, ever suffered a headache.
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 Allah has granted this month.
were his effects now.
Like, where is he in history now? This great king, you know, Percy Shelley, he wrote a poem when
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 structure. And it was called as Amanda's Ozymandias. So I wanted to read to you this poem. There's a lot of Heckman in it. It's very beautiful, actually. And he says in it, you know, it talks about this concept of of you.
The fate of history and the ravages of time and how all ownership, no matter how magnificent is simply going to go away.
It's all temporary. He says I met a traveller from an antique land,
who said too vast, and trunk lists legs of stone, stand in the desert, near them on the sand, half sunk, a shattered massage lies whose frown and wrinkled lip and sneer 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, of a menacing Pharaoh, right? Oh wicked an angry person.
He says, which yet survived, stamped on these lifeless things, the hand that marked 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 stance stretch far away. That's all that remains. The lone and level stance.
Before that the Muslims Post said in and look at Jan minemining. weigh in. I mean, who McCarron with a journal at a comb Amarula Mala della who had de Kado for Kendall como makan?
Where are these great kings, the ones with the crowns from Yemen, and where are they and what happened to them? I tell como Amarone an affair happened to them, which was death, an affair happened to them that they weren't able to repel.
And so they disappeared as if they never existed. How many kings of Earth have lived on this in this land? 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, SubhanAllah. 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, What are you talking about? I've never heard of this
person. And they're 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 Cattle slaughter? That's all you can't expect everything else is going to disappear. So Allah azza wa jal
is the one who's the possessor of real milk Allah is the Possessor of the real dominion and Allah as good as the giver of that the prophets Allah 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 hamdulillah insha Allah all of us have gone there 1000s and 1000s and 1000s of years before paradise is full.
You guys don't even want to say I mean, come on man.
The least that you can do is the army. So the private satellites and then tells us that this man is going to enter into Paris this person is going to come and find paradise for
and so Allah azza wa jal will ask him what he wishes. And Allah as the year will then tell him after he answers he will say, Would you be pleased if you were to have the world
when we feel human,
and something similar to it as well? And so
Think 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 gender. The province of Elias M says that this man will say, Oh my Lord, are you mocking me? And you're the Lord of the Worlds?
Are you playing with me tricking?
So this is the person who has the least share of the dunya. So what then about the cyber Kona side upon Hola, como caribou? And 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 in Charlotte? I don't want 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 azza wa jal, the power of Allah the sovereignty of Allah, Allah azza wa jal, he says, pulley Lahoma medical Mulk Tim will come into sharp well turns it on, we'll come in mentorship, where to resume and Tushar are to the lumen to sharp viatical here in Nakada Colusa and
Kadir Allah says and I'm Ron, he says, Oh say Oh Allah, you are the owner of sovereignty, you give sovereignty to whom you will and you take sovereignty away from who you will. Now Allah Allah says, Tim will come into shock. You give it to whoever you wish, what tends are more common mentorship, and you take it away, and Neza 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.
They hold on to it. President for four years becomes president for life. Aren't you happy now? So there's no 10 Zero Mulcahey mentorship you take it away what's your issue mentorship, 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 player in the gala coalition in Korea, you are able to do all things here are two beautiful
comments on on on on these two lines, be ethical, higher in NACA Allah coalition party you have in your hand is all good, and you are able to do all things. When you're thinking about an medic, Al Malik, Al Malik. You know these names they're supposed to invoke things in us. When the Prophet SAW Elijah said I'm tells us a CIFA. He tells us a he tells us an attribute of Allah or Allah tells us an attribute of Allah. It's not just so that we can say, oh, Allah is an Mata. He's the owner of everything. No, that's supposed to affect our relationship with Allah. If the province has said and tells us Allah is Allah man, or Allah tells us a little man that's supposed to cause us to react and
interact with Rahman in a certain way that we have hope in His mercy.
So what does belief that Allah has really is the owner of everything? What should that be? What should that invoke in us? 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?
The best okay.
Anything why anything?
Okay, because he's able to do all things. Like all all things are all like
just kind of some stuff.
It's true, man. It happens that I'll give you an example. I was with shareholders in New York a couple weeks ago.
And we were in Central Park.
And Central Park has apartments that are overlooking it. And those apartments are I don't know how many millions of dollars
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 all like yeah, this apartment is probably like a couple million dollars this apartment is this This apartment is that God there's like a model would you like to live in an apartment in Central Park? I was like, Absolutely. What What are you talking about? I grew up
so he says, Oh Allah, rather modern apartment overlooking Central Park and he starts making
and I'm like, I mean.
Okay. So then he says, Amma he says I asked you. He said when you said I mean did you really believe it was gonna happen? I said absolutely not.
So he says Subhanallah he said when I made sure I had for your team, that you are going to have it.
I was like okay, okay, okay.
But a lot of times when we we say Naka Allah cliche in cardio, you're able to do all things, but in our hearts, were kinda like, this is a little too much. That's not really going to happen. But, again, it's about us having certainty, right? That you believe that Allah has the agenda.
is able to do all things that Allah has which is able to do all things, and that the one that you are asking in his hands is the heavens and the earth.
And that's something that we have to continuously remind each other and continue to practice until we believe it. And then when it does when we do believe it, it's power in Charlotte that is transformative. The Prophet sallallahu sallam,
or even before that Allah says Maliki Ahmed Deen. Why is it Malik? Yomi Deen in particular.
Like, Allah isn't the magic of everyday. But why does Allah specifically say that he's the magic of the Day of Judgment? That's sort of
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 Allah.
They pretend to have ownership with Allah azza wa jal. They pretend to be kings, they pretend to be, I am the king of kings. People say that even though the Prophet symbolizes that I'm setting the violence name with Allah azza wa jal is 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. Okay, so on the Day of Judgment, there's going to be no competition with Allah azza
wa jal, or Allah as he just says.
Forgetting the verse but Allah Allah, on the Day of Judgment, there's going to be no competitive, no competition with Allah azza wa jal, and Allah azza wa jal as the prophets of Allah to send them he says and even your Omar that also the loss of Allah sent him says yesterday law who as the origin is similar to Yama Yama for mayor who the Hoonah ba the helium not from Morocco and Al Malik al Jabbar alone and with a Kabul, tikka Buren from met with Aldine became it he sent me a call to another medic energy a balloon animal took a balloon, even it almost says that the province of Elijah said him while he was on the number he said that on the Day of Judgment, Allah azza wa jal is going to
fold or that Allah Jada is going to place the heavens 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?
So, to conclude, and Medic the belief in this name
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 Allah has given that he has the ability to grant us whatever he wants the province Allah sent him in a beautiful Hadith Bootsy he says that Allah azza wa jal says Yeah Even Adam
or Allah so yes,
you have any Adam No, no well Akuma encircle wodgina Calm calm and also a denwa hidden for I'll tell you to cool in sign in Miss editor, but I'll tell you to cool the insert in metadata. Man la casa daddy come in mind the Illa kamayan CUSUM Makia to either outfield bow, Allah says that, oh, mankind, if the first of you and the last of you and the interview mankind of you and the Djinn of you all were to get on a single plane, 7 billion of us, we're also standing in front of Allah as Georgia. And we were all to ask everything that our hearts could conjure up and our wildest imaginations could imagine.
And then Allah says our to, I weren't 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. Monica said Daddy can remind the ILA Can I am. And Maria is a little bow, 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 Allah azza wa jal is dominion, if you were to give all of us everything. So who are the one that who's the one that we're asking? And to recognize that we recognize that everything
that we could possibly want? Number one is that it's not great in the sight of Allah as though is it? Whatever it is, it's not, it's not too big for Allah. And number two,
that it's not too it's not too great for Allah azza wa jal number two, is that everything that we want
their hearts are controlled by Allah azza wa jal you know the prophesy centum he taught even our best as he says it so alphas Allah with a stand for Stein Billa if you're to ask anyone then ask for Allah look how many people you ask in a day.
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 YOU EAT
You asked 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 level a lot is in them teaches us that if you're to ask anybody ask Allah and if you're to seek the help of anybody seek the help of Allah.
While I'm in Malaysia, Medina for Oklahoma federal campaign in LA cateva, Hula, hula, that if the entire world were to gather to help you with something like imagine, if a person had 7 billion people behind them,
7 billion people you 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 colitis and then 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 Allah Azza did has already helped, decided.
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 ALLAH as it has already written for you.
They have no claim he says in the culburra Melissa la Hibiya demon Allah done in Aqaba, Minister Fattah la Hibiya demon out of time, 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 thing you turn to is always Allah azza wa jal, the King of kings.
This is with regards to and Medic, Allah to Allah Allah, the next name is a produce and produce is really a name that your average Arabic speaker they may not, you know,
be able to figure out its connotations. It's not really used that much in regular conversation or Arabic. But it could Deus is mentioned as the name of Allah as well in a number of places in the Quran. One of his is sort of the hash of that same sort of that we mentioned earlier, that lists a number of the names. Who hola hola, hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. Medical producer Salaam and movement so I'll produce as mentioned there, and Allah Azza dimensions and sort of the drama you said before the LA MF is similar to my filter and medical produce al Aziz Hakeem. So Allah mentions that everything exalts Allah azza wa jal in the heavens and the earth, the sovereign, the pure, the
Exalted, the mighty and the wise, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to invoke the name of produce, he used to say in his Roku and his sutra sujood suborn. Produce Babu Mala equity.
So this is something that the prophets that Elias and him used to say, quick tangent, if you go onto autopilot in your Salah, and you want to figure out a way to
increase your focus, one of the quickest and the easiest ways is to just change up your the things that you say, in the Salah. 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?
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?
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,
your GPS isn't working. And your loss. Are you still able to talk on the phone?
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?
that's the power of being away from your routine. And so if a person
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.
I he 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 dua for me and they're such
they would say all Allama fitting them hammered, 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 DUA that I teach them to make and sujood they're probably going to be saying that drop for like the next 15 years. And he said I met one of my Sunday School students 10 years later and he said Sheikh Mohammed I make the offer you in every subject or in every Salah
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 Escar that you
You can do there's so much variety in the follow up in the car. So here you have, you know a few sets of how to build a Alim right or you Say Subhan. Allah, Allah and that's pretty much your subject and that's your record. The province of Allah cinema says. He says Subhan and medical produce Subhana medical produce from Bill Mala. This is something that the Prophet says that he used to say, when you get up from record instead of just saying we're gonna look at you at Hamlin cathedral and tell you When Mubarak and fie 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
inshallah Tada. It will increase your focus and then he says, when he would finish his with a prayer, the province of licensed Mr. Say Subhana Melaka, could do Subhana moluccana produce and 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 what are the meanings of will produce? What does it mean? The first meaning, and the most apparent is the ultra Deus is the one who's free from all defects. He's pure.
The Arabs they used to call the vessel that they used to use to purify themselves or this. 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 azza wa jal and unbefitting of His Majesty. So every attribute that is not befitting of Allah azza wa jal is rejected, because he hasn't produced
even if that attribute denotes perfection in his creation. Like what?
If a person doesn't sleep?
Is that an attribute of perfection?
Not write for person doesn't sleep doctors up?
Are they going to be seeking
are they going to be seeking some sort of cure from that insomnia? Right? Now however, with regards to Allah as though agent, sleep is a deficiency, and so it's rejected from Allah Azza Allah says, hola, hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. Heyoka you letter Hello. Sen Well, I know Allah as when he says he's not affected by slumbered, he's not affected by sleep. These things do not touch Allah as well with regards to Allah their deficiency and so it's rejected. So everything that is defective, Allah azza wa jal is purer from that and that's one of the meanings of a could use. The second meaning of the produce is the Possessor of baraka and the possessor of bounty. What does Baraka mean? Baraka means
Jada to hire, Baraka means increasing 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 it, okay, so Baraka is when something the good of something is increased. And so Allah Azza is the Possessor of Baraka, Allah, Allah is the One Who grants Baraka, Allah azza wa jal is the one who designates certain places to have Baraka or certain times to have Bartok or certain people to have Baraka. So Allah azza wa jal made the prophets bless it. Allah as we didn't meet certain places, bless it, he made Mecca bless it, he made. Medina bless it, he made goods bless it. So he made the
prayer in Mecca equal to how many prayers in Aqaba. 100,000. He made the prayers in Medina equal to how many 1000 He made prayers and puts are missing that officer equal to 500. So Allah has increased the blessings of these places. Allah azza wa jal makes times bless it. So Allah Allah blesses the last 10 nights of Ramadan, Allah Azza blesses the 10 days of the edge, 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 azza wa jal is the one who is the giver of blessings. Allah azza wa jal is the one
who blesses people's actions he blesses their time, Allah azza wa jal makes the risk, bless it. So Allah, Allah can make a person whose risk is
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.
And yet Allah Allah can give a person a lot of risks 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, Allah so they can bless a person's life. So you find that a person dies at the age of 40.
And they fill 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 Ahmed Abdul Aziz, we've been talking about him, as he's as an OMA since he passed away.
He died in 100 year hedging
so over 1200 years 1300 years been talking about him as he's he died under the age of 40 or at 40 Someone like you don't even know it because of the justice that he established you have someone like him I'm in no way also under 40
the high estimates place him at 40 and yeah this person but him Allah Allah blessed his time in his life so much that every literally every work that he wrote turned to gold and the only just accepted it the Omo with 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 a never know where you'll find the other slot. You know, you'll find his commentary on Muslim or you'll find something and everything that he did it just became the standard Allah has blessed his people and so asking Allah Allah to bless our time and to seek out the blessing times the province level Allah they send him
said Boudica, the Almighty feeble Korea. The Prophet sallallahu sallam said that Allah has blessed this ummah, in its early risings that this OMA is blessed in the morning time, also of the devotions, or the meanings of Tabarak, or sorry, will produce is he's the one who the hearts of the Creation Duta consists of
the absolve him from all imperfections. And so he's the one who all of mankind
and all of Allah's creation, the mountains and the oceans and the fish and all of his animals, the creation, they all make that lease of Allah so, they all absolve Allah azza wa jal from imperfection they all praise Allah as they all exalted. Allah, Allah Allah and I want to just wrap up with a Salaam and this is going to be short Inshallah, and then we'll be done.
The meaning of Islam.
And Islam is one of the names of Allah as well as per Surratt and Hasha. Right, so
over the next couple of days, at least next week, it will also all of the names will have been mentioned the salted hash, so as salam means a salad, and as Sally 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 azza wa jal is Salim in his SIFAT, a Salim and his attributes, and he said him in his other hand, he Salim in his actions, meaning that there is no defect or shortcomings that touches them in any manner.
Allah azza wa jal has 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 Allah has like the Jews, who said that Allah azza wa jal
created the heavens and earth in six days. And then he rested on the Sabbath. Allah Azza wa sallam from that, that He needs rest. And so Allah Allah says, We're not going to somehow chill out, or maybe no math. He said to me, Oh, mama said I'm in loop. Allah 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 azza wa jal. Allah azza wa jal is free from any imperfections in his knowledge. So Allah Allah says, knowledge is perfect. It's free from any ignorance, it's free from any hesitancy it's free from any doubt. Allah azza wa jal
knows the present and the future and the past. And they're all the same. You know, the scholars they say about Allah azza wa jal before that what Allah Allah says about himself, he says, are in the Houma fatica leap, La ilaha illa who were Alamo Mathilde Bollywood back Roma to school to me well Katene Eli
autodata elaphiti Tabin movie, Allah says that He has the keys to the unseen
no one has access to them except for him. For him. We animate them I feel very old. Mafia he knows what is in the London he knows what is in the sea. What matters to me, what are 13 Ely Allama 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 false. Allah accounts for it. And then he says, what I have nothing feels automatic. So this is something that's more appropriate a grain of sand that moves or
shifts, any piece of dirt that you kick or is carried by the wind anywhere. What I don't mean when I obviously an electric guitar be moving, it's all recorded from Allah azza wa jal. All of that knowledge is there. The Scholars say about Allah. Ya Allah mama can oh my Hakuna Wilma, la mujer que lo can okay for your code. They said Allah knows Maka, Allah knows everything that has happened, you know, the the Muslims. They started to talk about Allah's knowledge when it Hijazi been usif catapult
To the carver, with with, with boulders outside, he laid siege to the city of Makkah during the life of Abdullah newspaper Hajin Yusuf was the MO a general of Abdul Malik of New Orleans, and Hadji Musa Besiege, of the lightness of air at the Kaaba. And he started catapulting rocks at the GABA. And so the combo was struck, and the cannibal 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, Allah doesn't know what's going to happen in the future. So the scholars, he said, Allah knows, and people
began to ask him to live near amata, and I'm delighted Noma then went, when people met him in that hedge, they they asked him, and I'm delighted. No, that was that that question was the one that initiated the lightning, sharing the famous hadith of god of the library. And I said to them, No, tell them that I'm free from them, and they're free from me, and that they will not if they were to give the entire mountain or didn't gold, Allah wouldn't accept that from them that charity from them, unless they believe they've caught up I heard Bob say, they in a minute you loosen and also realize or send them that they omit and then the hadith of GPD is mentioned. However, with regards
to what they know about Allah as to what we know about Allah, the scholar said, Yeah, lemma can, Allah knows everything that is in the past. Well, my Hakuna Allah knows the future. Well, my lemmya coloca Anna K for your code. 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,
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
choices that were available to me at any point in time, how that would have played out. Allah 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, 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 live somewhere else. Allah knows how all of that would have played out and that is mind boggling. But that isn't the knowledge of Allah azza wa jal. And so we're comfortable in that whatever Allah has chosen for us, he is an ICS. He is an Hakeem. He's the mighty, and he is the wise. He's the mighty and he's the
wise. So he's perfect in his knowledge. Allah says Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Maphorisa Malachi mafia, my Hakuna minute USA teen Allahu Allah. Allah Hunstanton. Illa. Who has just done I mean Zadek. What Surah Illa? Who am I? Who am I can also be Ma Ma, Ma Ma. Ma in Allah have you coalition in Hadith Have you not considered that Allah 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 Allah azza wa jal is the third amongst you, or the fifth or the seventh or however many there are. Allah azza wa jal always make sure that you plus one, because of Allah has just presence as Salam is the one who is free from lying or oppression. Allah says, what at what time at Kalamata Becca, Sitka Anwar Adela Lam Oba delicate MIT was Samuel Aleem, and the word of your Lord has been fulfilled civil can why the law in truth and injustice, none can alter his words and he is the hearing and the knowing, said the con meaning sitcom Phil Acaba, Allah azza
wa jal 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 the adalah truthfulness Adeline Phil, aka everything that Allah commands from us, is just so this Sharia that Allah Azza has legislated for us and all of its details.
It's complete just, it's completely just and I recognize that if it's praying five times a day or 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's legislates. So that grants you a contentment that grants you a happiness A salaam Salam, Allah has released a Salam in what he gives us 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 restore
verses but it is out of Allah as good as wisdom. And it is Allah azza wa jal is Rama that He gives His servants what is best for them. And also a Salam is indicative of Allah azza wa jal perfection he made it the greeting between each other. He made a Salam, the greeting between us so Allah as he just says to here to him your mail Cohen who set up? Well I didn't imagine and Karima Allah says that on the day of judgment on the day where they meet Allah azza wa jal there to hear their greeting is going to be set up. And Allah has prepared for them generous reward. And Allah Azza says about about us for either the whole team we will attend facility more either on physical and
physical, to hear them in the line mobile rocket and play EBA but when you enter your houses, give greetings of Peace upon each other a greeting from Allah bless it and good.
The final thing that I want to mention is that a Salam is also a decree that Allah has given gifts. It's a status that Allah gives to his believing slaves. And so Allah has did, for example, a sort of Safa T mentioned a lot of prophets Salam when I know enfilade me so Salam O Allah, Ibrahim salam ala Musa al salaam, Allah EBRC Allah azza wa jal is saying salam upon these prophets, and he says, And he concludes the surah he says, sit down when I didn't want to say it. He says, Subhan Allah because I'm As Salam on Alamo city and and salam upon the prophets. What does this mean? are the messengers it means that these people, Allah, Allah has decreed that they are going to be safe and secure on
the day of judgment there. They're good. They're safe. Allah, Allah says, Put it hamdulillah wa salam, O Allah, Allah.
Allah says Al Hamdulillah and salaam, this security and this safety upon those slaves of Allah Azza who he has chosen.
And so this Salam is a is a security and a safety that Allah has read 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 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 Allah azza wa jal cast into their hearts sukeena Tama Nina, Allah cast into their hearts tranquility, river, contentment with Allah Azza decree that made them living in a paradise while they were living on Earth. And while they were going through their
difficulty, Ibn Taymiyyah he says that there is a paradise in the heart, that whoever does not experience it will not enter the paradise of the aka, the serenity with the decree of Allah as we are 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?
And so this contentment that people have, where you actually love what Allah has, we have decreased for you. It's a very high level, but it's a very sweet level. So I didn't have to walk us. He was a companion of the province of Allah said, I'm one of the 10 who were promised paradise. And he was known amongst the Companions as someone who was Mr. Java Dawa. He had or Mr. Java, he,
when he would make dua, it would manifest immediately.
It would just manifest immediately. The interesting thing is that when he became elder, he went blind.
And so people asked a very rational question, you're blind? Why don't you ask Allah azza wa jal to bring back your eyesight.
So side of the line, he said, By Allah,
me being pleased with what Allah azza wa jal has decreed for me is more beloved to me, than for me to seek out my desires.
It's very powerful.
For me to be pleased with what Allah has decreed for me is more beloved to me than that
they have this contentment even with the trials and the tribulations that they have. They go through in their lives. So the name is Saddam indicates that Allah as it is free from all perfections in every attributes, and every name that you hear, and as the Prophet sallallahu has said, let me say Allah meant to surround because an antibiotic totality the gelato electron Oh ALLAH urs Salam and from you as salam Tabata activity I late you are the source of baraka and you are far above everything else. Yeah there July they will Accra just talking Allah Salalah lesson Medina adios like this.
Thank you for I think we went a little bit long today just gonna look at everybody.
If you have any questions, let me know otherwise we're pretty much
