00:00:00--> 00:00:07

Send him semen Caufield eyeshadow Layla Hill Allahu la sharika why shadow Mohammed Abdullah solo salatu wa salam O Allah.

00:00:09--> 00:00:35

So to tonight's topic in sha Allah is called navigating the store, knowing Eliza during the good times, so that he knows you during the difficult ones. And that's kind of that second part, which is what the topic is about is verbatim from the prophets the law to send love. And one of the variations of the famous hadith of Ibn Ibis in which the prophet SAW the light they send me told you my best

00:00:36--> 00:00:44

definitely love Allah luck. preserve the commands of Allah and Allah will preserve you for the law. They did who to jack Thank you very much.

00:00:46--> 00:01:19

For the law they did who to jack preserve the commands of Allah you'll find a lot as though gel with you. It is Allah if you ask a lot. Wait a stat interested in Billa and if you seek the help of anyone seek the help of Allah as the origin. Why elemental? lowish Tamar Allah in Fukushima in America in La Casa de la hudak I know that if an entire nation were together to harm you, they wouldn't be able to harm you except with little Eliza gel has already written for you and the headache goes on but in a variation of this Headey the province the light is telling me to start off in a life and a hot Yeah, I

00:01:20--> 00:01:32

know Allah azza wa jal during the good times the easy times. And a lot as the reader will know you during the difficult times a lot as we did will know you during the difficult times. And so, when you reflect on your state of blessing right now,

00:01:33--> 00:01:51

when you reflect on your health, your security, when you reflect on how things are going smooth, you may be employed, you may be in school, got handed a love very sheltered life.

00:01:53--> 00:02:40

And that is a great blessing. Then that is the time to worship Allah. That is the time to make a lot of dots with lies I get that is the time to repent to Allah that is the time to invest in having a relationship with Allah. Because Allah azza wa jal criticism criticizes those people who only raise their hands and do out when everything is going wrong. Those people who when they are now in fear of their lives, when they are afraid when they are afflicted by law, that is when they raise their hands and Miss supplicate to Allah azza wa jal, but the person who remembers a lot as the agenda, even in the good times, now that is someone who is special. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says

00:02:40--> 00:03:13

that is the one whom Allah azza wa jal will know during the times of difficulty. And so we begin by the beginning of the eighth in which the problem is the lightest and then he says that for the law homework, he says, preserve a law, a law will preserve you Well, what does it mean, to preserve a lot. So the first part preserving a law is to preserve the commandments of Allah, meaning that a person preserves the commandments of Allah and Allah azza wa jal will preserve them, preserve the commandments of Allah, meaning that the person does what Allah obligates them to do.

00:03:15--> 00:03:41

The obligatory actions, they pray their five day fast, they're Ramadan, they do that, which is obligatory, and they stay away from that which is prohibited. If something is prohibited, they stay away from it, they avoid it, they shut it. And in doing so, in just focusing on these, if a person were to just make this their focus for the year 2007, they would be

00:03:43--> 00:03:43

what?

00:03:45--> 00:03:45

What did I say?

00:03:47--> 00:03:48

2007.

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

Okay, good, good catch, I'm just checking to see if you guys are awake

00:03:54--> 00:04:01

2017, then that would be that would be an incredible amount of

00:04:03--> 00:04:42

ingest, or that would be a great step for a person to take. Because, you know, if a person avoids them Hatem of allies, they will be upon us, and they will be better than us. They will be the best worshiper, the person who avoids how, you know, one of the the the scholars he mentioned he says, I might have been better, he said good deeds are done by the righteous, and the wicked. Good deeds are done by the righteous and the wicked, but nobody avoids held on in lesson except for a truthful person. This is a very powerful statement that he makes, you know what you may give in charity.

00:04:44--> 00:04:55

But the most evil person on earth will probably have some charitable organizations that they donate to, or charities that they have. Right. They give in charity to. You may feed the poor.

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

People who aren't righteous may feed the poor. Lots of

00:05:00--> 00:05:21

do good deeds, you may pray other people pray. But what really defines a person, you know, because when you do goodness, you sometimes aren't doing it and everybody who does goodness, they get a benefit from doing goodness, there's a benefit. That's, you know, they, they might feel good, they might feel like they helped somebody, there's some sort of

00:05:23--> 00:06:06

feel good reaction that comes to them from that. However, he says, the only person who will refrain from how long even though their desire calls them to do this, even though they would really enjoy to do that, but they still refrain themselves from that because it is on so they are not submitting to anyone except for a lot as the agenda and in fact, they are still doing what they would desire. Because a lot as we get wills otherwise it has legislated otherwise he says the only person who's willing to do that is they said, There is someone who is absolutely truthful. Someone who is sincere. And so gauging yourself, not just from the status of did I pray tonight, did I pray and

00:06:06--> 00:06:44

then after ish I went, and I did some crazy stuff, and then I'll be back for fidget. Know, that I gauge myself in the avoidance of since I gauge myself in the avoidance of sins, I worship a lot as we did by performing that which is obligatory and I avoid that which is that is the first step of fo Leela. preserve the commandments of a lot because the commandments of Allah are commandments and prohibitions. And hence up to live now, boss, he says, when you hear Yeah, you have the denominator then then give it your ear because it is either a commandment that's about to come once you hear Yeah, you handed the Anam. It's either a commandment that's going to come or it is a prohibition, or

00:06:44--> 00:06:45

it is a prohibition.

00:06:46--> 00:07:28

Okay. For the law. Yeah, follow a law as though they will preserve you Well, how will allies or that preserve you, the scholars, they said a lot as a double preserve you in two ways. The first is he will preserve your he will preserve you physically, he will preserve you in your dunya a lot as a general will provide for you Masada have the dunya Allah azza wa jal, and hence the verse realize we just as Lahu mokuba, to me being a young woman, amarilla avola, hoomin amarilla, Allah says there are angels from in front of them and from behind them, protecting them by the command of Allah, these angels an idea I've never thought of said that every human being has angels in front of them

00:07:28--> 00:07:49

and behind them, protecting them. And so for those who think that, well, we don't have this concept of guardian angels in Islam, all you need to do is watch a YouTube video and you'll see people who, you know, there are a million of them, you have a guy who's about to step out of his car, and he opens the door. And then he decides to just look back in and all of a sudden, another car comes in slams.

00:07:51--> 00:07:57

breaks that door off the car. Well, what caused that man that last second hesitation.

00:07:58--> 00:08:10

These angels that cast lots of to a person's mind. And he says to him, he says, He says in American origin, he says for every person has medic, Medicaid, provided him email me

00:08:12--> 00:08:53

halia they know who avena so he says that every person has two angels that protect them from other or protect them that become a barrier between them and cutter. And then sorry, they come between them until cutter comes and then when other comes, they move out of the way and the cutter heads. And so that person who ended up getting hit by a cart. That is because they're angels that we're protecting them and protect them and protecting them from everything else. When that Divine Decree came, they moved out of the way and they let that Divine Decree touch that person. And so he says, Mujahid Mujahid himself said, as soon as he says, I mean I've been in love with

00:08:54--> 00:09:36

you know me why mineralogy will ensue. And for mommy che nei de la casa de la la and other no lo fi for your sleep. He says there is not a single person except that they have angels around them. And they are protecting them in their sleeping in their wakefulness. And there is nothing that approaches them except that they say, Go back, go back until something comes that allies though it then has willed, and so it actually touches this person. Nonetheless. The first level here is that a person protects is protected and preserved by their obedience to the commandments of a law. So it didn't and they're not just preserved in their physical, from accidents and things like that, but

00:09:36--> 00:10:00

they're even fit. They're preserved in their faculties. And so it has been said anecdotally, for example, by our teachers that they have not met a person who has memorized the whole line and has lost their memory in their old age because they preserve their mental faculty with their memorizing of a lie. So just book is so a lot as though did preserve their abilities and their intellectual

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

abilities later on in life, and there are many others who they preserve their bodies, from disobeying Allah as they did when they were young. And so our lives are preserved their strength, and he preserved their abilities and he preserved their faculties after they became older, so the law, yeah, follow preserve the commandments of Allah, and Allah will preserve you. And hence you hear the drought in which it is said with a smile, you know, Latino, Latina, played tonight, which I mean, oh, a lot, preserve our sights in our hearing and our abilities as long as we are alive. And so one of the ways for the person who's concerned about their, one of the ways for the person who's

00:10:37--> 00:10:39

concerned about their

00:10:40--> 00:11:19

abilities, and they want to have them and they want them to be preserved, is to make sure that they preserve them by preserving the commandments of allies that we didn't know. So that is the second ask for the third, Allah as though that preserves that person by preserving their religion, and that is the greatest allies we get preserves this person's religion. And so when this person has a cause of conflict, or this person has a less suas, or this person has a difficulty or this person has a sin that is presented to them that might destroy them or destroy their religion or destroy their assets, a lot as it protects this person and an example of that one of the greatest examples of that

00:11:19--> 00:11:22

is use of it his setup, who in the

00:11:23--> 00:12:04

when he was in the house of the wife of he was in the house of Al Aziz and the wife of Al Aziz was tempting him and use of it is that I'm in that state had every reason for him to fall into sin. He, he had every reason to fall into sin, and he actually had no reason and he had no way for him to not fall into sin. He was a foreigner. He wasn't even in his own land. So meaning he has no support. He has no family that he can go to he has no backup. That is number one. Number two, he's not even a free person. He is not even free. He does not even have a choice. Not only that, but he's living in the house. That is a prison for him the house of Allah Aziz, not only that, but the wife of Al Aziz.

00:12:04--> 00:12:06

His very mistress

00:12:07--> 00:12:52

is the one who's calling him to this. Not only that, but that whole aristocratic class of women have all now agreed and they're all plotting against him. And so use of it Scilab has every access to commit alpha, alpha, alpha, and he has no way out. And yet Allah azza wa jal provides for him a way out to a new survey Salam says, Rob BCG, no habla la me Maya drone, na La la la cerva, Nikki de la la comida. JD, he says, Oh, my Lord, prison is more beloved to me than what they are calling me to. And if you do not do if you do not divert me away from them, I'll be inclined to them and I will be of the ignorant. And so Allah azzawajal provides for use of a way out from that prison. So there are

00:12:52--> 00:13:28

some people who even in the most dire circumstances, even because Allah as he says, with me, tequila, his Allahu Maharaja, Allah says, Whoever has stuck over law law provide for them a way out. Whereas Oklahoma in high school, they act as if and Allah as they will provide from them for where they did not expect. And then you have people who are the opposite. They didn't preserve the commandments of a law. They weren't sincere with a law as though Yeah. And so in their moment of conflict of law, so we did expose them. And that is one of the meanings of the Hadeeth of Abdullayev neutrality law. And when I'm delighted the majority said, that'll sort of last Salahuddin who send

00:13:28--> 00:13:43

them he says, In allegedly I'm a newbie I made my akuna Bay in Havana Isla de la Chris McQuarrie in Kitab. Via movie I did not read Hulu. He said that a man will continue to do the actions of the people of Paradise until there is nothing between them and paradise except for

00:13:44--> 00:13:45

a hand span.

00:13:47--> 00:14:03

And then they will do the actions of the people of the Hellfire and they will enter into it. And so this phrase caused a lot of people pause. So what are you telling me? You're telling me that a person may do the actions of the people of Paradise their entire life

00:14:04--> 00:14:34

and then near the end of their life, the writing will overtake the destiny will overtake them, because it will overpower them. And they will do the actions of the people of the Hellfire and they will enter into it. That's kind of a hard pill to swallow. You say to yourself that you're going to spend your entire life any one of us worshipping Allah pray, have developing a relationship avoiding harm our entire lives. And then when we're so close to paradise, some written pages will overtake us, some further will overtake us and it will be up to the people of hellfire.

00:14:37--> 00:14:59

The scholar said no, that's not the correct understanding. Because a lot as origin does not oppress anyone. And it is impossible that a person spend their entire life journeying to a lie soldier, sincerely, truthfully. And then at the end of lies we did let them down. It's not going to happen a lot is not going to forsake a single soul that is sincere to him. So

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

What then is the reconciliation of this Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu send them in another variation he says, we're in not allegedly Hammurabi, I believe a little Jana female Abdul leanness in what appears to the people.

00:15:14--> 00:15:31

This person was not sincere. This person is a person who is seemed like to the people was doing the actions of the people of Paradise, but they weren't doing the actions of the people of Paradise, they weren't sincere, and so near the end of their life a lot as the agenda exposes them.

00:15:32--> 00:15:46

And so this big person, or this great person, or whoever the people thought, you find that near the end of their life, they take positions, or they do that which causes people to feel or is just something that is

00:15:47--> 00:15:51

completely wrong. And then action of the people of the hellfire.

00:15:52--> 00:16:29

And so, a person who is sincere, Allah azza wa jal will not expose that person a lot as your protector, and that is the example of use if it is set up. And that is the example of many of the righteous before us Gabby, when the medical of the law and who he was a sincere companion, and he participated in every campaign with the Prophet sallallahu Yes, and then except the campaign of better, that's the only one that he missed. And he missed the campaign of taboo because of basic human procrastination. And when he the province on the lights sent him was returning back from the campaign and garbage nomadic was worried because he didn't know what he was going to say to the

00:16:29--> 00:16:57

Prophet symbol lightness in them. And he said to that extent, I asked the opinion of every member of my family, and they are every pooted member of my family and they encouraged him to to make up some some information. You know, just tell the progress on the lighters and then make an excuse in the province the lightest and then we'll accept it and carry the mnemonic. He's said in the headache. He said when the problem is the lightest seller arrived in Medina, all of those ideas vanished from my mind.

00:16:58--> 00:16:59

Everything vanished from my mind.

00:17:01--> 00:17:41

Well, who made those ideas vanish, it was also loss of what it was alized because I broke the law and who is sincere from before so Allah azza wa jal gave him sebat. In his moment of doubts, however, there were some 80 some odd Manasa T, who did not have that doubt in their mind vanish, they did not have that confusion are that evil planted in their mind vanish. Rather, they continued on a lot as though Jen had them exposed later on. So the point here being is if a person preserves the commandment of Allah, Allah will preserve them in their time of difficulty, fully love did you do to jack?

00:17:43--> 00:17:52

Definitely last digit to jack preserve the commandments of Allah. And you will find a lot as the origin in front of you, you will find a lot as well in front of you. And

00:17:54--> 00:18:11

the Presence of Allah is also two types, the Presence of Allah after the lethargy due to dark you'll find a light in front of you. There's two types of Mariya. It's called Maria of Allah. And Maria means it comes from the word man, thank you very much. It's like Okay, can you grab that?

00:18:14--> 00:18:17

The Maria of Allah is two types. Just

00:18:18--> 00:18:20

keep coming, keep coming. Thank you.

00:18:22--> 00:18:25

I got it. I got the Maria of Allah has two types.

00:18:27--> 00:18:30

It comes from the word of mouth, which means with the first

00:18:32--> 00:18:57

type is the general Maria, that a lot as though gel is with everybody with his knowledge with his encompassing of their actions. And the second type is Allah as Odin is with the believers. Allah is with them, watching over them, taking care of them, providing for them. And so you have these two concepts people

00:18:58--> 00:19:10

they're not conflicting and even in English, you say someone is watching you. Right? A lot as a kid is watching you. And that's one level. That's one type of media and it's right a lot is watching you. That's the first level.

00:19:11--> 00:19:14

A lot is encompassing your actions a lot as I just said.

00:19:17--> 00:19:25

Miko Lumina, Joseph Salatin en la hora, para Humala. hopsital illa horseradish Humala. dynamin delicata Xsara Illa home aina Mercado

00:19:28--> 00:19:39

Allah says there's no private gathering of three people except the last their fourth, there's no gathering of five except that Allah is there six. And there's no more than that, nor less than that except that Allah is with them wherever they are.

00:19:40--> 00:19:48

That sort of thing modjadji law. And so here, you get the sense of Allah azza wa jal is watching you. Allah is watching you.

00:19:49--> 00:19:51

Allah is aware of everything that you say.

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

Allah azza wa jal hears everything that you say and sees everything that you do and that is supposed to invoke

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

cautiousness fear,

00:20:03--> 00:20:04

oh,

00:20:06--> 00:20:15

Allah is watching you. But then there's the second level of Maria, which is Allah is watching, not just watching you but watching over you.

00:20:16--> 00:20:21

Allah is watching over you. And so when Musa alayhis salam comes to the

00:20:23--> 00:20:44

bank, and he sees water in front of him, and he looks behind, and he's with Benny and slot in. And he sees Pharaoh and the army and their eyes lock. That's how close they have gotten. They got to each other. And Benny Israel says in Alamo dracoon That's it. They're gonna catch up to us.

00:20:45--> 00:21:26

And moosari syrup says Kela in nama irbc ID. And that's an incredibly powerful statement. It's a very profound statement because Moosa is Arabica looking in every direction and all he sees is death. All he sees is death. There's water in front of you, you're gonna drown. There's an army behind you, you're gonna get slaughtered. Where else is he supposed to look? And yeah, Moosa. I didn't say that I'm just saying Kela No, we're not we're not gonna die, we're not going to be overtaken, and we're not going to be caught up to in America, don't miss a deal. I have my lord with me, he's going to guide me My Lord is with me. And so this is that personal Maria of feeling that a

00:21:26--> 00:21:40

lot as though Jen is not just watching me, but a lot as though that is watching over me and sort of lost the lightest, when he is in a lot, he's in the cave. And he has put a bounty on his head and I will work and

00:21:41--> 00:21:48

they have no power and they have no one who can protect them other than a lot as a worker is worried because if they simply look

00:21:50--> 00:21:51

in their direction, they will see them

00:21:53--> 00:22:24

and he says later in Obama and he says no, don't grieve, don't be sad. A lot as though yet his manner he is with us. A lot is legit is watching over us a lot as we get is protecting us. So actually lie over preserve the commandments of Allah, Allah so did will preserve you a lot as a general preserve you and the province troubled by this enemies established in the life you know, hot. Yeah, and if he says, No, Allah azza wa jal during the good times and Allah so they will know you during the bat. Now, knowing Allah is three levels,

00:22:26--> 00:22:27

knowing allies three levels.

00:22:29--> 00:22:33

The first level is knowing Allah as your Lord.

00:22:37--> 00:23:08

Knowing that God created you, you ask them who created the heavens and the earth, they say, Allah. So this is something that it's not just the Muslims who share everybody, in general who believes in a creator, they know that something, whatever they call, this supreme deity created them. And he is the one who provides for them. And he's the one who takes care of them. And he's the one who nourishes them. And he's the one who they call out to when it comes to difficulty. He's the one who they asked to watch over their loved ones, all of that.

00:23:10--> 00:23:22

Then you have the second level of knowing a lot, which is after you've known that a lot, so good is your Lord, that You know that Allah azza wa jal is your ILA, the one who's worthy of worship.

00:23:24--> 00:23:45

He's the one deserving of my prayer. He's the one who's deserving of my supplication. He's the one who deserving of my token, he's the one who's deserving of my hope. But he's the one deserving of my fear. He's the one who's deserving of my Rebbe of my worship. That's the second level. The third level is to know a lot as though just by knowing his names and his attributes,

00:23:47--> 00:24:25

by knowing his names and his attributes, and I give this example a lot, but it was a very profound experience for me. And that was that sometime last year, I had given a lecture on Jesus in Islam and at a university and after the university, after the lecture, a group of Christian students came in, they sat down with me, and they had questions and we sat around the table, and they were asking me, or one of them she was asking. And I thought it was a great question. So I kicked it out to the rest of the group. The question was, what is your favorite attribute of God? And so I asked them, I said, What's your favorite attribute of God? One of them said that God is love. That's my favorite

00:24:26--> 00:24:42

attribute of God. Another set that God takes care of me another said that God is beautiful. I said, these are all beautiful. What else you got? Another person said that God takes care of me. Another one said that God is love. Another person said that God is beautiful. So now I'm seeing repetition, anything else?

00:24:43--> 00:24:52

But it all revolved around these three things. And so I thought to myself, okay, well you say that God is beautiful. We have a name for that his name is and Jimmy.

00:24:53--> 00:24:54

What are you talking about?

00:24:55--> 00:24:58

We have a name. We actually know God by his names.

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

You say that God takes care of you we have a name for that his name is not what

00:25:05--> 00:25:06

you say that God

00:25:07--> 00:25:10

loves. We have a name for that his name is that will do.

00:25:13--> 00:25:15

And all throughout the Quran

00:25:16--> 00:25:23

Allah describes himself to us through His names and the province Little Lies set him describes a lot to us through His names

00:25:24--> 00:25:40

and they said we did it. This this concept of names is new to us. I said well watch this. Allah Romana Rahim and medical katusa salam and Moomin and Mohammed Aziz at the bottom of the cup barricade albidum so we'll have a pop bahara habra Zapata

00:25:41--> 00:25:43

and jaws were just dropping left and right.

00:25:44--> 00:26:15

But I was it was a profound experience for me because it made me realize that as a Muslim oma, there is no oma that has more knowledge about God, then we do. And there is no oma who neglects to learn more about God with as much information about God as we do. So it is actually a shame that a person not know Allah, as though genuinely have so much access to know Allah. And hence the Prophet stumbled like this. And then he says about himself on the Day of Judgment, and I say you do it at the Academy, okay, I'm at

00:26:16--> 00:26:18

the moment doing whatever.

00:26:19--> 00:26:51

He says, I am the master of the children of Adam on the Day of Judgment. And I'm not saying this out of pride. them and everyone after him are under my banner on the day of judgment in the province, the lightest, and it says that he will be carrying glue will humped on the Day of Judgment, he will be carrying the banner of praise the scholars they looked and they said, Why is the province of Eliasson, of carrying the banner of praise? They said, because he is the one who praises a lot the most. And this oma is the one that praises a lot the most, because we are the ones who know the most about Allah.

00:26:52--> 00:27:02

We are the ones who know the most about Allah. And because we know so much about Allah, we praise Him in all circumstances. And so when things happen that are great.

00:27:03--> 00:27:04

What do we say?

00:27:05--> 00:27:06

We said hamdulillah.

00:27:07--> 00:27:12

And when things happen that are horrible, that rip our very hearts out of our chests, what do we say?

00:27:13--> 00:27:14

He said,

00:27:16--> 00:27:19

We don't say oh, my God, oh, god, why did you do that?

00:27:20--> 00:27:33

Because we recognize that, that God that put me through this misery or this test, or who separated me from my loved ones, or who took this job away from me, even though I wanted it so bad.

00:27:35--> 00:27:36

His name is on mine.

00:27:38--> 00:27:40

And so when you put that name into the equation,

00:27:42--> 00:27:44

it just changes your perspective, doesn't it?

00:27:45--> 00:27:50

When you say our man is the one who took my spouse away from me,

00:27:51--> 00:27:54

what does that what what connotation does that give you?

00:27:55--> 00:27:56

are a man is the one

00:27:58--> 00:28:00

who caused my loved one to pass away?

00:28:02--> 00:28:03

What meaning does that give you?

00:28:05--> 00:28:06

I'm asking.

00:28:15--> 00:28:16

Okay, let me repeat it.

00:28:19--> 00:28:20

When you say

00:28:21--> 00:28:22

are a man,

00:28:23--> 00:28:29

the Most Merciful is the one who took my loved one away from me.

00:28:31--> 00:28:32

How does that

00:28:34--> 00:28:36

change your perception of the event?

00:28:38--> 00:28:40

Or your perception of God?

00:28:42--> 00:28:47

What does that do for you? As opposed to simply saying God, God took my son away from me.

00:28:50--> 00:28:52

Okay, makes me think what he had in the first place? What

00:28:54--> 00:28:55

makes it bearable? How so?

00:29:02--> 00:29:10

Well, it doesn't that that's not all in the phrase. I'm just saying, man. What does man the one filled with mercy? What does that do right away.

00:29:12--> 00:29:13

There's no mercy there. There has to be.

00:29:15--> 00:29:52

There's mercy there even in me going through this incredible circumstance. The one who made me go through that circumstance is the one who has more mercy for me than anyone has to anyone else. And so our man is the one who did that. And so by me knowing Allah azza wa jal, it allows for me to praise him in all circumstances in the good, I recognize that Allah did is in Katy and Ella hub and the result under Fatah. And so all of these opportunities that came my way came because if I opened the door for me and others up, prescribed it for me and then will have gifted it to me, and then carry him out of his benevolence and his grace is the one who bestowed it upon me. I know all of

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

these things that so there's not a blessing that comes my way that I experienced in the day or in the night on any day. Except that I recognize that is coming to me

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

From a lot as loaded with all of his beautiful attributes, and when I experienced something that is difficult, something that is incredibly bitter. I recognize that that is still coming from. It's coming from an Hakeem it's coming from Allah de la ciudad knows, and you do not know. And the lies are jealous Weiss. fact, he is the most why's. And so a lot as well. For example, even in the pairing of the names, by the way, the pairing of the names gives you additional meanings. And so we talked just now about lobbying, and we'll do it a lot as we get very interesting v. Lee, the name of a dude only comes once in the Quran. Allah says we'll hook a photo to a dude.

00:30:37--> 00:31:06

He has a lot of food, and we're dude, and the scholars, not just the scholars, but every single one of us we read the Quran, we see these names that are mentioned at the end of a verse we're supposed to pause and reflect and see, these names aren't just thrown in there for effect, these names are thrown in there because of the meanings that they bring it so when a lot pairs I love food within were cute. The forgiving with the loving, there is an additional meaning that is created there. And it adds to the beauty of what we know about allies though just because

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

we can forgive.

00:31:10--> 00:31:14

We can forgive those who harm us very, very, very severely.

00:31:15--> 00:31:39

But it is incredibly difficult, if not impossible, it is the most rarest of cases in which a person is able to bring themselves to forgive someone. And if there was love that existed from before that that love come back just as it was before the harm was inflicted to them and or comes back even stronger. It's incredibly rare.

00:31:40--> 00:31:41

Someone comes in

00:31:42--> 00:31:52

a lot protect us all murders a family member, yes, the family member might the family may forgive that person, but they're not going to, to love that person. They're not going to.

00:31:54--> 00:32:05

But a lot as he calls himself I look forward to a dude and so people sin against them with the most violent, aggressive evil since and then when that person repents a lot as God loves that person again.

00:32:07--> 00:32:48

Allah has really caught himself as evil Hakeem many times. And as he said, Hakeem, we say the absolute power corrupts absolutely. That is the power when it is given to human beings. That absolute power corrupts absolutely. However, when it comes to a law law calls himself a disease, and he calls himself at Hakeem and so Allah gives power and might and ability are perfect, and yet that perfect might an ability does not make him oppress anyone ever. Because hikma the definition of hikma is putting things in their rightful places, and the definition of little men oppression, is putting things in the wrong places. And so a lot as it is a disease analyzer that is a hockey,

00:32:49--> 00:33:10

nonetheless, knowing a lot as the winner through knowing his names and attributes that are left in a life that are hot. Yeah. And this is what would cause a person to praise a lot as they did. And this is what would cause a person to worship of alive or dead. And this will cause a person to ask a BA. And then the last part of the headache, the province of the listener says he has a low either status to me law.

00:33:11--> 00:33:17

That, by the way, with regards to this last point, he made a comment that he says a law as dogen may

00:33:18--> 00:33:39

prevent a person from a benefit that they have, say for example, a person that gives this example a person applies for some sort of leadership position, or some sort of some sort of business. And a lot as though yes as to the angels. This person if they reach that position,

00:33:40--> 00:33:41

they will be thrown into the hellfire.

00:33:43--> 00:33:46

So diverted away from them, diverted away from them.

00:33:48--> 00:33:51

And then this person, the person will continue to say

00:33:52--> 00:34:03

so and so I had any so and so belittled me, so and so didn't give me a chance so and so didn't give me an opportunity. When it was released the fog level law.

00:34:04--> 00:34:05

It was really the grace of God.

00:34:07--> 00:34:35

You apply for a job, you apply for a position you apply for this, you apply for that. And Allah says to the angels that if you actually get what it is that you want it, you are going to end up in the Hellfire and so a lot diverts it away from you. And you end up spending all of your time stressed out and anxious and upset about so and so who rejected you, or so and so who didn't give you a call back on your interview, or so and so who did this and did it facilitate the opportunity and you're fuming

00:34:37--> 00:34:58

and when read in reality, it is the grace of Allah as though that is the boundary of the law. That's what the Buddha says Nonetheless, the last part of this idea that I want to cover is the province of the lightest, and it says that Southwest ID law. Interesting bill if you seek the help of anyone seek the help of a law. And if you were to ask anyone that asked the help of a law, you know she saw had McGimpsey he said something incredibly beautiful

00:34:59--> 00:35:00

and he's the

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

Imam of Masjid Koba in

00:35:03--> 00:35:03

Medina.

00:35:05--> 00:35:06

And he said,

00:35:07--> 00:35:09

a person who makes the

00:35:10--> 00:35:15

has to make, because they believe that Allah is able to do everything.

00:35:17--> 00:35:25

In over 40 verses in the Quran, Allah as dogen mentions, in different ways, this concept in the Lyla coalition,

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

Allah is Able to do all things, and that is mentioned in varying forms, over 40 times throughout the Quran, Allah is Able to do all things. So shahzada mentions, he says that sometimes a person, the thing that you want, becomes so distant, that you don't make up for it anymore.

00:35:48--> 00:36:00

And sometimes, that thing that you don't want that thing that you want to be protected from, becomes so present and overwhelming, that you don't make up for it to be lifted from you anymore.

00:36:01--> 00:36:03

Because it's just, it's, it's here to stay.

00:36:05--> 00:36:06

And he says,

00:36:07--> 00:36:41

you have to remember that Allah is not able to do some things. Allah is not able to do little things and not the big things. Allah has no agenda is Able to do all things. That thing that you want, no matter how distant it is. You have to believe that Allah as diligent is able to bring it to you. That thing that you dislike, that harm that is so prevalent and so overwhelming. You have to believe that allies though Jedi will able to lift it from you.

00:36:42--> 00:37:24

And no one is going to be able to continue to make. He says that is the key. That is the key to that is the key. Because you have to believe even before believing that lies merciful, yes, lies we give is merciful. Allah is merciful. And so he he can, you know, but or other people, other people are merciful to you walk into a hospital, you find people walking around visiting sick patients who are filled with mercy. But what's stopping them from helping these people, their inability, they don't have the ability, but Allah as a surgeon is an ideal. Allah is the one who's Able to do all things. And so when you ask a lot, you asked a lot, recognizing that he's able to do all things, very

00:37:24--> 00:37:33

powerful verse that we all know. Allah says, subotica lady, big hit Mark wahala cliche in

00:37:34--> 00:37:38

that verse will just give you goosebumps, because Allah just says,

00:37:40--> 00:37:58

bless it is he? Who is he? And let the bat Hilleman. You know, this is the minion that we all are so worried about and afraid of and fight over and little plots of land that we argue and spend and countries that we cry over. And all of these things are less systematic and let the big Makarov belongs to him.

00:38:00--> 00:38:18

And just in case you forgot, who had a condition Katia, he is the one who's able to do orthotics for either side first Rila way the stance was the umbrella if you ask anyone as the help of Allah, and if you seek the help of anyone, make sure that you seek the help of Allah. Always make sure even if it's the most small thing,

00:38:20--> 00:38:37

even if it's just a cup of water, asked a lot as long as you make that your habit that you asked a lot Sahaba they said the prophet SAW the light they seldom used to teach us to make us the kata in everything in everything. Every small purchase that they would make, they would they were taught to make is

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

to ask Allah because Allah knows and we do not know analyze it has ability and we do not have the ability. This is what I wanted to share. And we will end here inshallah title cellulitis and hamadryad either cyber center to see if there are any questions or salt I'll take them otherwise, I'm going to go home and try to sleep off this allergy that just showed up.

00:39:02--> 00:39:04

Going once going twice.

00:39:05--> 00:39:07

Okay, so that one is alive

00:39:18--> 00:39:19

I've ever had in my life.
