That there are a couple of important introductions. And the first is
our concern should not be just how much we know
are concerned. Schmitz will talk about put out with a little bit fed up and pull it over, but have been nice these verses and protective in nature.
And so before
because you've heard these swabs so many times before, and these are verses that are familiar to you have to ask yourself, he's describing the companions he says kind of a light of the Roma Babu Haku been a man he said by Allah Sahaba Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam were the best of this ummah.
Why were they the best, he says, a vulnerable hallelujah and they had the most righteous hearts. Their hearts were the purest their hearts were the most righteous. But then he also says a knucklehead Edelman, he says that they had the deepest knowledge Sahaba had, their knowledge was deep. And he didn't say interestingly enough, a thorough heart ailment. He didn't say they have the most knowledge. He said they have the deepest. What's the difference? The difference is depth, meaning that there were generations that came after the generation of the companions, who learned more Heidi's than even the companions who lived with the private cellulitis. And there were people
like a madman to memorize a million ahaadeeth, like one of us memorizes. In fact, there were people like Mr. mcquarry, who had memorized hundreds of 1000s of heidy, their work fuqaha, who not only knew the filk of one companion and the fatawa of one companion, but they knew the fatawa of multiple companions, they had more knowledge. And we probably live at a time where we have access to more knowledge than anybody else. But the issue isn't the presence of information or knowledge. He says, I'm applying admin, which means that knowledge that enters into the heart of a companion, penetrated into their heart and into their mind and into their being in a way that it didn't for any generation
that came after. And I give you an example.
We all know the God of the Saba and the mist. So we're going to talk about sort of the Laplace we're going to talk about it could see it could see you're supposed to read it after every What?
every prayer, right? We know that we know that in the morning times you read Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. Oh, the girl bidness recite them three times. And that you recite them in the evening times we know that before you go to sleep, you're supposed to recite them. Sometimes we do it sometimes we don't. Many times we do it many times. We don't.
I didn't have a thought he tells a story. And he says that when the prophet SAW the lights and had received some spoils of war and and one of those spoils of war was some servants. I lit on the line who had a job where he would carry water and he would carry water until his back hurt.
And his beautiful wife Altima Zaha, she toiled to. She used to grind barley until her hands became calloused. And so Fatima goes, and she's Daddy's little girl, and the province of the light. SNM last Fatima very much he would stand up when she would enter the room and he would place her where he was sitting several days. And then she was the one who resembled him the most. And we all know his love for falling out of the line how she comes and she asked her father, for a servant.
And yet the prophets on the light is seldom even with all of the emotions that a father has wanting to provide or at that. He says to him
and also for who
they're the people who live on welfare, so to speak. Right? They're the people who are being supported by the Muslim state. They're the people who have nowhere to live nowhere to go. They live in the masjid and the prophets little white Islam is saying to his daughter, that I'm not going to provide for you a resource that I cannot provide to the people who have the least in my community.
That's not the point yet. The point is Fatima goes home she's dejected.
And the prophets of Allah they sent him that night. He and he asked for permission to enter into their house and they grant him permission and the prophet SAW the license and came in he stood in between the idea of the law and faulty law. And I live on the line who said that I felt the coolness of his feet
and also lost the lightness and I'm says Talib never thought it and felt him and he says Shall I not tell you about something that is better for you than a servant? That every night before you go to sleep you say so Pamela 33 times that hum did left 33 times on a lot but 33 times that is better for you than a servant.
Now the other night they extracted from that and they said the crew law yo in bed and they said that the remembrance of a law strengthens the body. It gives you physical strength.
In New York, there's a brother whose name is giant. His name is giant, okay?
He is the founder of an organization called the bartenders. If you go on YouTube and you look up bartenders, you'll find a group of people. If you use AZ you'll find a group of people who do these crazy pull ups. Okay? They do these crazy pull ups, you'll find them on YouTube and you'll look at them and you'll be like, is that one I'm modern? No, it's not modern.
None of them but the point is, is that these guys are huge and Mashallah the brother's name is Hasson but his nickname is giant. This guy's huge. He's maybe 50 years old.
But the guy looks like he's carved out of a mountain martial law, theological law. And when he came to the masjid one time, and he was showing all the young kids how to do pull ups, and this is the type of pull ups that we do and all of that. He said, You know what my secret is? He says, Every time I go up, I say Allahu Akbar. I said hamdulillah as a supanova, he says, and nobody else on the playground, any guy else comes up. He can't hang with me. He can't last with me. This concept of the vicar of Allah propelling him forward empowering him. That's not the point yet. The point is, I don't even ever thought he was narrating this heady years and years and years later, he's a mutant
meanie and floppy mouse passed away, but sort of lost so I sent him has passed away. A Boba Coronavirus, man, they've all passed away. And he is telling this to his group that's with him. And he says, since I heard this from Russia last July to send them I never once went to sleep without saying Subhana Allah at hamdulillah and La ilaha illa Allah, or sorry, Allahu Akbar.
Now, there's always one person in the crowd who wants to test the speaker, right? And so one person says to him, not even on the day of Sofia.
Even on the day of Sophie, you know what the day of Sophia was? The day of Sophia is the day when the army of it clashed with the army of Malia. And it was said that on the day, Josephine, more Muslims died on that one day, then all of the Muslims who had passed away in all of the camps in history, we learned that the American
war that had the most casualties was what? It's the Civil War, right? Because the Civil War, both sides are American, the North is American, the South is an American. And so the day is to feed more Muslims died on that one day, because it's the army of it clashing with the army of Somalia. And it could be seen walking amongst the dead, saying it has said, I wish that I had died before this by 20 years.
But even on the day of sloughing, when he laid down to sleep that night, he says, so panela 33 times at 133 times on a log but 33 times.
And the reason why I introduced this concept is because we're going to read the prophet SAW sent him saying, do this to this companion, and do this to that companion, and you will hear the companions continue to say, I never stopped doing this. Once I heard it from the prophets, the light is and their knowledge was deep. It wasn't necessarily so much, but it was deep. And so we asked allies to grant us even before we present any information, we grant us the ability to fear the speech and to follow the best of it allow me now, I too could see as for adequacy,
the virtues of it could see are a lot of them is what was reported.
The narration of obey even gap and the wave niqab is one of the great scholars of the unsought and he would eventually have the School of the Quran in Medina, you had three schools that formulated in the early Muslim world. You have the School of obeyed niqab in Medina, you have the School of Abdullayev nobis in Makkah, and you have the School of delay, Miss route in Kufa and obey even a cap was a great scholar of the Quran. And as such Ramadan, the hot tub had the first thought when he gathered the people. He gathered them to pray behind obeyed niqab. So he's a great man, great companion of the unsought. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam tested him and he asked him and he said,
oh, wait are over the moon did what is the greatest verse in the book of Allah and Dubrovnik, I've said a line His Messenger knows best. Because that's the way that they would respond on the Prophet. So I sent him and asked them a question. They realize that he is only asking them this question, because he has the information and so he would ask them they would say a line His Messenger knows best. And then the province the license says, No, I want you to answer me. So he says, Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah Who will pay you and so the prophets of the lightest and attach his chest, he tapped his chest and he said, in your abdomen, z says, may you be blessed with knowledge of humans. And so
this tells us, this scenario tells us that the greatest verse of the Quran is the verse of ayatul, kursi or whatever
called the verse of the Quran. It's not gonna mean the throne, but it is a courtesy. So let's go over this verse very, very quickly. But of the also virtues of ikusi is that it is protective and it is protected from the jinn. And the way that we know that is because of the hadith of Abu hora and avoidable the line. He says that the prophets to lie to send them had him guarding the southern car. And one day a man came to him who is old and disheveled. And he came asking, taking from the southern car and Abu huraira caught him. And he told them, I'm going to take you to the province, the lighter said them and the man said to
he said to have already said I'm an old man and I have children and I had to let him go. And then the next day, he came back. And each time I will have a right to tell the Prophet so the light I send them afterwards and the prophets level mighty Sam said he's lying to you, he's gonna come back. The next day, the man comes in a bowl later catches them again and says I'm going to take you to the province on the line and send them a nice, let's know, please. And then he lets him go again. And then the third time.
He says I'm going to take you to the province the lesson and this time that's it and he says to them, how about I teach you something that will protect you from harm. And he says Teach me and then he said Allahu Allah, Allahu Allah, who would help you that you recite that. And so he went to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, he spoke to to to you, well, who are kazoo, and he is a consistent liar. And then he told him that that was shavon. And so this, by the way, teaches us a manner It teaches us something of importance, which is that we take the truth, even if it's coming to you from a bad person. We even take it from shavon. So the province of
Eliasson affirmed this and so a person who is in fear or a person who wants protection that they learn to recite it and put it in the night before they go to sleep. There is I have two cooks in the morning. And not only that, this brings us to the third Heidi, who were the prophets, I send them informed us that the person who recites ayatul kursi, after every Salama tuba, after every prescribed prayer, the five daily prayers, the only thing that will stop them from entering into paradise is death, meaning the only thing that stopped them from entering paradise, their ticket is sealed. The only thing that they're waiting on, is that they haven't died yet, but as soon as they
do, they will enter Paradise. And so we have to make a commitment to recite it after every prayer, even if it just takes a second takes 10 seconds, 20 seconds. However, when I recited this verse, this verse begins, Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah who adhered to Allah. Allah is less than gelada. It is the name of Allah. It is the default name. Every other name that comes of the names of Allah is an is a description of a law. Because you say a Rahman is the name of a law and you don't say Allah is the name of a man or you don't say Allah is the name of Allah is the default name. And of the meanings of Allah is the one that is worshipped and have the meanings of Allah is the one that is
loved the most. And so Allah can mean or means the one who is worshipped and Allah also means the one who is loved. And some of the scholars they believe that Allah doesn't mean anything, it is not mush duck, it is not a name that is extracted from anything.
So that is Allah, Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah who there is nothing that is worthy of worship except for him. Now Allah is anything that is worshipped. Anything that is worshipped is an ILA. So the translation that an Allah has a God is not correct, because
my question for you is, is reciting Saddam Hussein ILA.
Yes or No, quickly?
Yes. Is Maria Mennella Yes or no? Yeah.
What's the proof of that? That they're worshiped? And hence and surratt and Mary the Eliza was at 70 million. Yeah, a Santa Catalina Sita Luna, Mila hain. I mean, do Nila, did you tell the people to take me and my mother as to a last other than Allah? Say No. So panic, I would never say that.
But anything as even above says, And Allah has anything that is worshipped. And so if people decided to worship this member, then this member becomes any law. people decide to worship a person, that person becomes any law people decide to worship an animal, that animal becomes an ADA. And so Allah as the origin he says, Allahu La Ilaha Illa who there's nothing that is worthy of worship except for Allah. Where does the word the come from the word the comes this word worthy comes from the
That's in that phrase, that law is called a law of national origins. Without getting technical and all of that it just means that this phrase is requiring a description and a listener. They believe that that description is La ilaha illAllah that there is nothing that is worthy of worship except for Allah as the devil.
And as such we include the word the there in the phrase La ilaha illa Allah who La Ilaha Illa who alhaj LTU and high and delta yom together, these two names together some scholars have held it to be that this is the Greatest Name of Allah Israelite album and he will tell you because the prophets on a lie they sell me says that Allah The his greatest name is in salt and Bukhara, and in sola, Baja, and in solid LA and Milan, and you'll find that at Haleakala yom is in all three of these. And so this concept of Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah, Who and he will pay you and the scholars, they looked at these two names at height and then play them. And they said that all of the names of a lot, they
come from these two names, and height and then pay you you pick a name of a lot, and it's going to return back either to an A, or it's going to return back to you. What does that mean? There are two main meanings that you want to take away from, and hate the ever living. One is that a lot as though agendas life
is perfect. It is not affected by sleep or slumbered. There's never a time when he was not alive, there's never a time where he will not be alive a laws. Life is perfect. That's number one. Number two, is that he is the giver of life to everything else. A lot isn't Hey, the Bestower of life and the lives of them isn't high enough himself. What is the benefit then? Or what is the main takeaway from knowing that Allah zodat is at high?
Allah knows best of the greatest benefits of knowing that Allah as though there is a high is to depend on him alone
is to depend on him Allah, because he is at high. Allah says what token Island high La La mood. Allah says depend on a hate depend on the ever living the one who does not die there is not a single person in this world that you depend on that you trust in that you have hoping except that at some point in time, they're going to leave. So what are you going to do that?
The prophet SAW the light is and I'm in one of the most difficult years of his life in prison, if not the most difficult life. He had his two greatest pillars of support swept out from under him. Some of the scholars said within months, some of the scholars said within days he lost a blowpipe and he lost Khadija all the olana
What's the lesson of that?
depend on Allah
depend on Allah. And so this habit they learned that message and so their greatest pillar of support was not their wife or their uncle, their greatest pillar of support the Sahaba all of them together was but also the last and the lightest and them himself and so when their world got flipped upside down, when NSM nomadic says the darkest day I ever experienced was the day that the prophets the light is and then passed away. And Ramadan the hot Bob is going off in a rage saying or soon lost on the light SLM has not died, and I'd never thought his legs gave out from underneath him and everybody is in a state of confusion and bewilderment. Abubakar on the line who simply has to stand
up in front of everyone and say, Hey,
mankind, I mean, come Yeah, Buddha, Mohammed, Mohammed and Padma manconi Abdullah, in Allaha. hayyan lai Ahmed, whoever view worships Mohammed you were depending on how much it is, and that's who you add all of your eggs in their basket. in that basket, then Mohammed has passed away, but whoever have you, worships a lot depends on a lot in Allahu Allahu Allah is Ever living and he does not die. So I'll hate, I'll pay you, I'll pay you is the one who everyone else depends on him. He is a human He is the one who maintains every soul, as a basis, as a human is the maintainer of every soul. And so Allah is Ever living in and of himself, and he's the one who maintains everything else. And as
such, the argument is that that hail to you is of the greatest Names of Allah. And another very strong position is that it is a law himself or that name, lovely jalala. And he will tell you, that the husana to Nicola No, there is no slumber or sleep that can affect him. And that is an extension of a lobbying and Hi, the province of the lightest and it says in the law, Elena, when I am better, you know what, Allah does not sleep. And it is not befitting for Allah that He sleeps. And then Allah as this has led to Hulu syndrome when I know
what's the next
Okay, just checking lahoma is similar to martial art. Allah says To Him belongs what is in the heavens and what is in the earth. Everything that is in the heavens and the earth belongs to Allah azzawajal. So who exactly are you asking things from? Tomorrow, every single one of us is going to go and we have lots of things that we need to take care of everything.
We've got every single one of us has problems, every single one of us, but who are you going to ask first?
And so one of the main Yani adequacy is the Greatest Name of the greatest verse of Allah, and you will find that it is filled with the names of Allah. That's all I had to kursi as it's just talking about who Allah is. And the reason why Allah as the origin mentioned, for us the names of Allah in the Quran, he says, when he smiles, Krishna, further obeah, Allah says to him belong to the great names, so call upon him by those names. And so Who are you going to Paul lahoma sumati. Matthew, men, the lady in the lab isn't, Allah says, Who is the one who can intercede on his behalf except by his permission. And this indicates to us this concept of chifa intercession that no one can
intercede on behalf of Allah number one, in this dunya. We don't look for any shefa in the sense that I don't look for anyone to talk in between me and the law.
I don't want to say permissible or impermissible, but I will tell you that it's a pet peeve of mine. Whenever I see people, you know, telling me, I'm going to go to Mecca. Let me know if you need me to make the offer you there. I say no, I can make the art from here. Thank you very much. I don't personally need I understand that. I appreciate that. But I'm not going to fill out anybody's Google Form. Because they're going to be closer to a law in Mecca. No, the closest I don't even have a thought but I'll be long has asked what's the closest distance between the heavens in the earth He said,
the distance of
it is the distance he said they asked him what's the distance of the heavens and the earth, He said it is the distance of an accepted prayer and accepted prayer. That's how quick you can get to the heavens. And so and that most accepted prayer, by the way, the scholars who debated and debated and debated between what is the Greatest Name of Allah, they said by unanimous consensus that it doesn't matter which Name of Allah that you use, because some of them they said, The Greatest Name of Allah is the Greatest Name as per the situation. And so if you're looking for Ramadan, the Greatest Name of Allah is Armand, if you're looking for macfeather, the greatest number, and it goes like that.
But they said unanimous consensus, no matter where you fall in the debate, Allah does not respond to the death of a heart that is he listen, no matter what cheat code you try to use, what name you try to use. If your heart is not present, then it doesn't matter. And so I believe I don't know about you, but I believe that my own problems, my own concerns, my own conditions, there is no one going to pray for me no matter where they are, except alone and maybe your parents, but there's nobody else who's going to pray for you as hard as you can pray for yourself.
And so get into the habit of asking a lot and don't get into the habit of asking others to pray to a lot. asking others to pray
to Allah for you.
Monday, Lady Yeshua Ando 11 Yalla mama been at mama cellphone, this is a really powerful verse, I'm not as urgent he says yada mama being at home on my phone, he knows what is before them and what is behind them. The scholars, they said the knowledge of a lot is four types. A lot knows the past, and a lot knows the present. And a lot knows the future. And the law knows
what didn't happen, how it would happen.
And so the concept of alternate realities, alternate universes, all of that, what would happen if you did this and you didn't do that or all of these different permutations or combinations or whatever it's called. All of these things a lot knows how they would have played out. Allah says about himself, he says we're endo homothetic or Liebe lay them or in the Allahu Allah, Masha.
Allah, Masha, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah says that, to Him belong the keys of the unseen no and no them except for him. And he knows what is in the land and what is in the sea. And there's not a grain that falls or a leaf that falls or a grain that moves in the heavens and the earth except that it's in a book that's recorded. And so a lot of knowledge is complete and perfect. And one of the great benefits of this is, you know, there's a there's a great great Imam,
a great great Imam who is, is the scholar of the people of Medina at this time. And his name is Mohammed bin Hamad Masada Shanti and this man is just I mean, everybody who you know who studied in Medina or something like that they all they're all students of him have a little lot and when this Manta is when he talks about fifth, it's like he's scrubbing your heart because he can talk about this. He can talk about the the purity of utensils, and you'll sit there and you'll be crying. You're like, why am I even crying? Just because of this person's? I don't know what it is about him a lot cast into this person, a light. That's just unbelievable. Nonetheless, people asked him and
they said shift, and I was just listening to this yesterday they were asking him and they said one person asked him He says, Where did you get all of this knowledge from?
Like, what are the steps? What did you do?
And then he said something that was so profound, he said, knowledge. He said, take this from me. knowledge comes from Allah.
He said knowledge comes from Allah asked a lot for it.
It doesn't matter who you study with. It doesn't matter what books you read, it doesn't matter all of these things.
If you ask Allah for knowledge, and by the way, knowledge is the only thing that we're commanded to ask for more of in the hora basically, Elma, Allah increased me in knowledge, that's the only thing we're ever commanded to ask for increase of in the Koran. And yet, he says, it doesn't matter. You know, what program or all of these types of things, if you ask it from Allah, from the source and ID, then
open up floodgates for you.
And then if you make your dependence on this program, or I need to go and study with this person, or I need to read these books, and I need to do all of that, and you forgot a lot as well as the main part of the equation, then
Allah who will simply write for you, whatever it is, that is prescribed, but you won't get that. And so Dr. Ayman swit, who's a great scholar of the Quran, and the great scholar of karate, he mentions
the people who memorize the Quran and he says,
Whoever thinks that they can depend on themselves and their own intellect and their own ability for memorizing the Quran. Then we tell them
basically Good luck
and see how it goes. No matter how bright you are, no matter how brilliant if you're, if you're not getting tofield from Allah, so Allah says the Alamo muy bien ad him on my cell phone he knows what is before them. What is behind them?
Yeah, the mama been a DA ma ma, ma, ma la v Masha, and they do not encompass any bit of his knowledge, except what he wishes
was accuracy who somehow it will not win, I would have lahoma, who will it will often say I could see his kursi extends over the heavens and the earth. And the scholars differed with regards to what this could see me
some set that it is the throne? No sorry. It's not the throne. Some set could see means that it is the footsteps. Sorry, not the footsteps, but the place of the feet of Elijah. Because the throne is the Hush. So where is the kursi? When you sit on a throne? Where do you place your feet, they said that is the courtesy. And
some said that it is the realm of Allah. And that's attributed to avian AB bass, that the course is the end of a line. So they have a lot extending between the heavens and they're, nonetheless, whatever the currency is, what it indicates to us is this thing that a lot created, expanded over the heavens and the earth, which indicates to us the greatness of the creation indicates the greatness of the Creator.
When you see the expansion of the universe, you're not just supposed to say wow, the universe is incredible and huge. You're supposed to say a law created the universe. When you see the sun, you're not supposed to just say Oh, the sun is magnificent and incredibly, you know, heavy I don't know if it is heavy, but hot. You're supposed to say Allah created that the greatness of the creation is supposed to indicate to you the greatness of the Creator. Then what's the accuracy, it's a matter of when I do have lahoma and then all of this universe and all of this it doesn't.
He's not exhausted or bothered by preserving it. Will Who will it will help him and Allah as though it is the great and he is the high. Allah is high in everything. Allah is high in his essence. Allah Azza wa Jalla sended above the Throne. Allah is high in his attributes, Allah is high in his actions, Allah is high in his judgment, Allah azzawajal is high in his God. Allah is high in everything that is beautiful for him to be high end. And he is great in all of these things as well. He is great in his essence, he is great in his attributes, he is great in his actions. His actions are great. He is great in his legislation a lot as though there is an early analyzer of him. And he
could see as we mentioned, his wrist is prescribed
to be recited after every single prescribed prayer and I recall the story, and I believe it was Jeff Woods who told us a story once of a person who had come across a a
sorcerer. And this person was a saucer. He was a person who is using gin. And he was like a person who played with sorts, and he would like stab himself with the story. But what ends
What up happening was that, basically this person was putting on a show. And the guy was using a gin to
swallow basically the sword, the gin would wrap itself around him or however it would work. But this person would stab, the gin would absorb the the stabbing, and people thought that he was actually stabbing himself.
So as this guy is putting on this show, a man started walking into the gathering. And he recited I could see.
And the jinn disappeared,
the shavon disappeared. And the next thing you know, this guy's seeping blood,
And the guy went to the hospital, and the guy's a sorcerer. And he was planning revenge against this individual for days and days and weeks and weeks and months and months. And he's just sending attack after attack and sorcery and magic and all of these things. And what ended up
protecting this individual, the one who was having a magician planning against them, was that this man would recite it quickly after every sabol and I had to go see when he would go to sleep, and I took it when he would wake up, he was completely protected.
And so I don't know where he got the story from, but I just wanted to share that with you guys.
Okay, so quickly, let us
go over sort of the the class and then a shadow, we'll call it a night sort of the loss
has a lot of virtues, and sort of the loss losses considered a third of the time.
And it's considered a third of the fraud because the prophets, little ideas, and then he told his companions one night he said, Everybody gather up, get ready, I'm going to recite a third of the hold on to you. So everybody's like, oh, man, this is gonna be a long night and they prepare it and they prepare it and they prepare. And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came in he recited to them sort of the Laplace. Does that mean that if you recite sort of the lift loss that's equal to you reciting 10 edges?
Some of the scholars they said, what does it mean that it's a third of the some of them they said, it's considered a third of the Quran because of its topic. And so the Quran is either speaking about it speaking about a lot, basically a third of the time, a third of the, the, the Quranic presentation, and discourse is talking about a lot. So it's talking about Ally's budget here. Some of them said it is equal to reciting like in reward a third of the Koran of that which does not include sort of
English tea mentions unanimous consensus that a person who recites three
times the loss is not like a person who recites the hold on from cover to cover. Because I'm sure somebody exists. I was thinking to myself when I was reading that, like, Who would think like that, but I'm sure there is somebody who on the first day of Ramadan was walking around saying, Where are all these people reading and running around? I read the entire Quran three times, right? I'm sure there is some guy on the first day of Ramadan, like I'm done, I did my first hotma. Okay, now, the province on the lightest of the virtues of sort of the Nikolas the province of the lightest, and he says that whoever recites sort of the last 10 times a lot as though dead will build for them a house
reciting sort of the left last 10 times immediately, it builds for them a house in paradise. And Imam Malik in a more thought, he reports that the province level lights and him says whoever recites it in a day 10 times will allow builds for him a house in Paradise, and whoever recites for it 20 times Allah will build term two houses in Paris and whoever recites it 30 times a lot as it will build for him a house in paradise. And so I might even have Bob Dylan who says, isn't Yasuda LA, we're going to increase and the province of the lightest, and I've said to him a lot as though there is more and more. Allah has more and more than that, also of the virtues of sorts in the philosophy
is that a, there was a companion who used to recite sort of the loss before every single rocker that he would recite. Meaning that when he would leave them in prayer, he would begin with sort of the neck loss. And then the Sahaba they asked him and they said, Why are you doing that man? Like, you got to either pick another sword or he said,
in the hospital, man, it's the description of a lot and I love it. And so the problem is a lot I sent him told them he said, Tell them that Allah loves him, because he loves that. Surah you guys know you're a Sufi, right? Yeah, Sophia is the nimmanhaemin or he used to be a new mom in the Champions area or Houston spring I think.
woodlands. So she Yeah, I remember the first time he came to click and it was the first time that I met him. He had just come on.
after Ramadan, and he told me a story that was just I found it. He said, when I first came to the masjid that the community in Houston, I was leading the hijab.
And he said, I let the hijab and he said, you know, the story of the man who used to recite sort of the Laplace in every locker, I thought, you know what, that would be something beautiful to try. And so we were going to reset sort of the Lancelot, and before I recited sort of Tesla, I just began by saying Bismillah Alhamdulillah de la, someone that made it in a muted, and
then we decided to go to this law. And then we finished the slot, and I turned to the right, and I turned to the left, and I found a row of kids behind me, and they all collapsed.
And we were thinking to ourselves, what brought you guys here, you guys were all playing in the back. They said, when we heard sort of Taylor class on the microphone, we thought the solo was over. So he ran.
So those poor kids, they were playing, they heard sort of the mud loss, and it's a trigger for all of us, right? The guy who's making will do all sorts of laws I gotta run in. And so that's what happened to the kids and they all got rocks that are equal.
And all sudden, okay, so
see here, it's sort of the philosophy and decided he wanted to get the first row. So sort of in the floss, there's another version which another version in which the Sahabi recited a little bit of floss As a conclusion to every rocker. And so after reciting the conclusion, and he was leading the masculine poobah and the Sahaba told him the same thing and he says, I love this surah he says, I love this sorta, and he said, the prophets Allah sent him said, her book, a Yamaha political agenda that your love for this surah has entered you into paradise. And so loving sort of the live loss will enter a person into paradise loving sort of the dickless garnered a lot of love for a person.
The interesting thing is we love sort of the last two, we just have to make sure that we love sort of the Laplace and our salop because of these mean meanings. Now,
there are two mentions of the reason of revelation for sort of the necklace. The first reason is in Mecca. And the second reason is in Medina. The first reason in Mecca was the machine again they said total foo Lhasa la vida Sanam Cephalon Arabic. They said, describe your Lord to us. I mean, there have been who have been filled but they said is your Lord made of Golders? Is your Lord made of silver? Like, what type of idol are we talking about here?
You're saying your God is better than ours? Is it made out of gold like is your idol made out of silver? And so allies are yet to reveal to people who Allah had lost some of them yet. Now, in Medina, the yahood asked the prophets of Allah to set it up the Jews in Medina, they asked him a different question, but similar mindset. They said Ansible and Arabic, they said, Give us the lineage of your Lord, whose son is he like where is he coming from? See the son of Prometheus, like Zeus Uzi, like
Rosetta, the son of a lot, like who is this? And so Ally's agenda revealed follow a lot. And there's nothing to prevent a saying that it was revealed twice that it was revealed twice. Nonetheless, Paul, who Allah, Allah says, cool, now the scholars they looked and they said, Well, why does pull here why the cool Why can't you just rationally like a Daffy? He used to recycle a lot and used to say, who Allah because Allah says, cool. So I'm saying, so I don't need to say oil anymore. And he would just say, who Allah had. Right? Why, why? Why do we still recite the whole? Or why does the province have a license? I'm still reciting the command to say, why don't you just say, the scholars
they said, because this indicates to us that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is literally reciting verbatim.
And he is not adding nor is he subtracting. And so there's nothing wrong with being you know, completely just reciting here. And so the province of Allied a send them commanded to save oil and there are five swords in the Quran that begin with right sort of that fella sort of a nice solid.
And the last sort of calculon and sort of agent. Now, Paula had say a lot is one a lot is unique. A lot of summer this word a summer is a word that most people are unfamiliar with. It's it's something that you actually have to it's not just normal language, but a summit
and it's not translatable very easily. What do you have?
A summit great. A summit even Ambassador summit is the seat the chief who's so is complete. So the summit is this leader, the master whose control is complete. So that's number one of the meanings of a summit. A lady Yes, moto la hora. The one
Who everyone is in need of, and everyone turns to.
And so Allah is a summit, meaning the one that I turned to in all of my circumstances, I am poor, I turned to a summit I am in need, I turned to a summit, I am sick, I turned to a summit. He's the one who everyone refers back to and everyone turns to. And so the really, really, really ironic thing is that when we are a need to get to something or to do something, we choose to recite a sort of the loss in the thought to get out of the soma, right, we recycle to death loss where we are basically saying, Allah is a summon Allah is the only one that I need, because I need to get to doing something else. And so Allah is a summit Allah is the one who and it's also translated as the
eternal refuge, right, which is a fancy way of basically saying, Allah is the one that you turn to. Good. So Allah is a summit. Let me add it to Adam, you did an interesting thing here is the scholars they looked and they said, Why does a law mentioned not having children first, as opposed to not having parents first? You have parents before you have children? That's the natural order of things. Why do you have Why does Allah say he begets not nor was he begun? Why does he say he does not have children? He negates children before he negates parents.
They said, Because Allah many more times had children ascribed to him than parents. It is very common that people attribute children to a law, it is incredibly rare that people attribute a source or a father or a mother to a law. So yeah, it's there, but it's not frequent.
Let me edit when I'm youlet what American law and there is absolutely nothing that is equal to Allah, there is nothing that is similar, there is nothing that is close. There is nothing that is comparable, a lot is unique in every way. And we believe that if anything is mentioned about Allah, that that is in a way that is particular to him. And none of his creation resemble him in any way. LASIK, anything he shaped with with symmetry, Basilan law says that there is nothing that is equal to him, or like him, and he is the all hearing and he is the all seeing. So this is just a little bit with regards to these two great chapters. But what we can take away and what's important for us
to take away is the action. And so reciting the 10 rules, you can actually you can do it right now, and it'll take you two minutes and reciting it in the night. And in the morning. And after every Salah will take you just a minute of your time after every prayer, but these are habits that are crucial for us to get to know or to start and imagine
reciting sort of the net loss 10 times builds for you a palace in Paradise, but you have to remember as well, that inshallah when we enter Paradise, we're there for eternity. So you don't want to be the person whose agenda for an eternity and you only have one house. Like Imagine that. You only have one house in general.
I mean, you want to have
a couple of 1000 at least a few million agendas forever, right and it's
it's beautiful, okay, there's not gonna look at the lights and this is interesting because here we are bidding farewell to our esteemed and beloved and super super eloquent Brother Mohammed inshallah Tada. So we will be meeting up outside and we've got some cake
