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

Cool, cool hamdulillah so I saw masuleh hide it or cyber cynicism could feel like so this is our last session we've been going over the names of Allah or some of the names of Allah over the month. And today I wanted to look at the name of Allah Subhana Allah, man.

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

But I wanted to look at the name of Allah or man from a different angle really, you know, not necessarily going through linguistic meaning and then talking about what ramen means I wanted to look at how the name of ramen appears in the Quran. We know

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

what ramen means. I mean, man comes from Robert mouches mercy. And it is from a from a Western standpoint it is I wasn't if I learn so that form that form that man takes in Arabic is when a person reaches like the height of something and so the height of hunger they'll say Joe and or not assign or outshine or felt bad, right? Hungry or,

00:01:03--> 00:01:27

or or thirsty or angry. These forms are this form Phylon indicates reaching an apex so I would call it an apex form. So what does the man mean? Man means the one who's mercy is at its greatest form. All right, man. Allah Subhana Allah Darla, this name of Allah appears in the Quran 57 times.

00:01:28--> 00:02:09

And Rahim appears 114 times what Rahim appears twice as many times as on ramen. But there's something really interesting about ramen. And so what we're going to do right now is we're going to do a tender Buddha session, you know, we have that course lost in translation, which is about contemplating the Quran. And this is going to be a contemplation session. It's not necessarily what is contemplation contemplation is curiosity, contemplation, is you just looking and saying, You know what, this is interesting. Let me see this thread. Let me see how far this thread will take me. Let me see. If if if I notice something interesting. Okay, and you're not making any particular claims.

00:02:09--> 00:02:28

But you are, are saying let me let me look and, and just try to see if I see parallels or if I see design, or if I see uniqueness, or if I see. And it's really beautiful. And I hope through this session that we'll kind of look at this name of Raman as being different.

00:02:29--> 00:02:44

And what do I mean by that? Look at it differently and look at it being different. When you look at the name of a man, Allah subhanaw taala introduces himself as a man in Surah Fatiha and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen all praises due to Allah the Lord of the worlds first thing that we come across is a man.

00:02:45--> 00:03:34

He is a Rahman and Rahim okay. Now, one thing that we noticed about Mohammed is that a man does not come in the Quran ever in the indefinite form. Never. It never comes as a man and Allah is the man on Never. You get Rahim like that you get many other names like that right Hakeem and I leave that will come without the LE flam Allah is Hakeem and Ali AM, Allah is me. And Mozilla is, but it never comes without the Elif Lam, it is always in that definite form Ottawa man, Allah is always like that. And we see reading through the names, that Allah Subhana Allah uses the name of rock man, in a way that he does not use any other name in the Quran except the name of Allah.

00:03:35--> 00:04:14

You know how Allah describes Allah Subhana Allah in His essence, right? It's not necessarily even describing an attribute of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, or Rahman is used very much in the same way. As if completely interchangeable with minium Allah Subhana Allah, so Allah Subhana Allah Allah he says when he law Hill as my own personal, you say we recognize that Allah is the default name. Every other name is a description of Allah and so on ramen is a description of the name Allah you say, Rahman is one of the names of Allah. You don't say that Allah is one of the names of Rama, you do not say that Allah is one of the names of an ICS. You see, ICS is one of the names of Allah right?

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

So Allah is the default name.

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

However,

00:04:20--> 00:04:59

a rush man, more than any other name has those attributes that we see actions worship being directed to that name, and it'll become clearer as I go through. Let's look at some of the verses. And we shall Rahman has mentioned in the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah introduces himself as a rock man. Allah says in surah Al molk, verse 29, called who are Rahman and be who you are they hit our Kana say he is a rock man. Say he is a rock man and behave we have believed in him, and we rely on him say he is Rama. We believe in him.

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

and rely upon him. Excuse me right here. Say he is a Rama. We believe in Him and believe in him. Say he is a man we believe in him and we rely on him.

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah he says.

00:05:19--> 00:05:22

So ALLAH SubhanA died introduces himself as a man he is.

00:05:23--> 00:05:40

Number two, when it comes to worship, we don't see any other name where Allah subhanaw taala says, and worship or as he is, as an Eli is a object of worship. We don't see Allah subhanho data, call Hakeem

00:05:42--> 00:06:06

to be worshipped. But Allah subhanho data says in Surah Zuko, verse 45, was an element of sudden I'm in public. I'm a Rosalina Anam in dunya Rahmani I had to say, say or ask those who have We have sent behind or other than you, before you from our prophets did we make other than a rock man

00:06:07--> 00:06:44

idols or gods to be worshipped? And so a rock man Allah subhanaw dias has other than mine is there anyone other to be worshipped? And so this is indicative of something interesting about on Muhammad, Allah subhanaw. Taala refers to that name as himself in the context of being worshipped and we don't see that with any other name other than Allah Subhana Allah data, but we see it for Rachmat when it comes to ALLAH SubhanA dialers Lordship, we see a man being referred when it comes to Allah has right to be worshipped, we see a man being referred so the example of Lordship, ALLAH SubhanA data he says, Well ain't not a buck. Omura man

00:06:45--> 00:07:31

and your Lord is a rock man. And your Lord is a Rahman, your Lord is on Rahman in Arabic and Roman so Rubia is attributed to Allah. And Allah Subhana Allah says, Rob Besana wa T will argue or maybe now humara Nan Leia municode I mean, Hoshi Baba and Surah never, Allah says, The Lord version of the heavens and the earth and what is between them are Rama. And so Rubia is attributed the lordship of ALLAH SubhanA data is attributed to Rama and again, you will not find it attributed to this name of Allah Subhana Allah Aziz, you won't see it being attributed to the name of Allah subhana di that Hakeem again we're seeing that this name is taking has a uniqueness to it. And this is the demo

00:07:31--> 00:08:10

exercise. We're not making any claims but we're just peeking curiosity and we're saying well why is that and what is interesting about this, even when it comes to the creation, Allah subhanaw taala when he talks about this being his creation, he uses the word Allah, he uses the name Allah had 100 kula. This is the creation of Allah for our own Imada, halacha lady and I mean doing it, then show me what everyone else other than Allah has created, right? So the creation is attributed to Allah and we don't see that in the Quran. heida Hunkeler disease we don't see that has a Hello Kitty. We don't see that had a humble Jabbar, we don't see that. It is attributed to the name Allah Subhana

00:08:10--> 00:08:32

Allah to Allah. But Allah says, Allah the Halacha Saba Saba Tinti, Baca metallography Hello camera man meant about Allah subhana data says, The One who created in Surah that monk, the One who created seven heavens one over the other, you do not find other you do not find in the creation of a man.

00:08:34--> 00:08:44

And so the creation is attributed to the name of Allah subhanho dialogue. What about with regards to servitude with regards to Allah subhanho data being worshipped

00:08:46--> 00:09:22

servitude to Allah subhana data this notion of Abdullah Allah says what a man karma Abdullah here drew Cardew Jacobina. Are they delivered and saw that Elgin, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says, And when the servant of Allah subhanho wa Taala got up when the servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala rose what a Maha Maha Abdullah and so we see the attribution of servitude to the name of Allah Subhana Allah Allah, do we see that anywhere else in the Quran? Do we see riba movement do we see Abdul

00:09:23--> 00:09:59

Abdullah semi do we see that in the Quran Abdul, Abdul kaha do we see that in the Quran? No, we don't except with one name and you already know which name it is. We're about to rock man illenium shoe and the owner and the servants of a rock man. The servants of man are the ones who walk on this earth in humility, servitude being attributed to man, Allah subhana wa Tada. He says, Why gehouden Mala aka Talladega home rebel to Rahmani Natha. Allah says and they made him sort of zero verse 19. And they made the angels who are their servants of Allah

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

Man, so we see servitude attributed to this name of Rama, and we don't see it attributed to any other name other than of course the name Allah subhanaw taala. The majestic phrase, what about the establishment over the throne being established over the throne ALLAH SubhanA data he says, in Nara, Bakula? Allah the Halacha somewhat you will have the thesis that the IEA your Lord is Allah Who created the heavens and the earth in six days. I love this verse so much. He said that the aim is to Mr. Eyelash and then Allah your Lord Allah we're paying attention to the names here. And your Lord Allah created the heavens in the earth in six days Phil Musto at large and then he rose or he

00:10:40--> 00:11:16

established himself over the throne. Yoshi Leila now that you know he's and diverse continues. But Allah here's the point for us is that Allah says that Allah your Lord is Allah who rose over the Throne. Where else do we find that? What other names do we find with that attribute that characteristic? This is the famous verse Allah says Allah man or Allah loves ustoa The man or rock man rose over the Throne. And so we see that with the name of Rama we don't see that with anywhere else. The revelation of the Quran itself when we talk about the revelation of the Quran, Allah subhana wa Tada attributes that he says Allah who has an accident Hadith, Nikita been with a

00:11:16--> 00:12:00

Shabbiha. Allah is the One who revealed the best of speech, a book that is muda shabby. Some verses resemble each other right passages that resemble each other, a book that resembles itself with regards to the different verses that are intertwined in its passages. That being said, the point here is that Allah Subhana Allah says that this name, Allah is the One who revealed the Quran, Allah subhana wa Tada he says, Alhamdulillah he led the answer I believe Kitab at the beginning of soldat Alka right Alhamdulillah all praises due to Allah, Allah, the Enza, the one who revealed the book so Allah is the One who revealed the book Absolutely. 100% What else do we see? Allah Subhana Allah

00:12:00--> 00:12:03

data he says, Allah man.

00:12:06--> 00:12:17

He attributes the book to himself. Oh, man, I Lemmer Quran or rock man is the one who taught the Quran. A rock man is the one who taught the Quran.

00:12:18--> 00:12:20

Allah Subhana Allah data he says

00:12:21--> 00:13:05

we're either to delay him is to Rukmani her rosewood, Jaden wobbu Kia and when the verses of a man are recited to them, in Surah, Maryam when the verses of Rama are recited to them, they fall in prostration and in weeping and so we see the attribution of the Quran and the verses of the Quran and the teaching of the Quran, to the name of Rama, the name of Allah Rama and there's a beautiful point that a chef mentioned once with regards to just when you see Quranic contemplation, the contemplation of the Quran and just you're trying to understand things and noticing things and, and paying attention to things and considering things and being curious about things in the Quran. Once

00:13:05--> 00:13:37

here, he was asked and he said he was asked about beating children and teaching them the Quran, right? A lot of places a lot of schools, you know, that's that's how generations of Muslims have been taught the Quran with this stick, right? And so he said, he was asked and he said, Is this something that is good? And he said, Just look at how beautiful contemplation of the Quran he says Allah Subhana Allah said, or man or lemon Quran, and he didn't say a Jabbar, Allah Quran.

00:13:38--> 00:13:58

Rahman, the Merciful is the one who taught the Quran. Now al Jabbar the Compeller. Right. And so that's a beautiful subtlety to answer a question paying attention to the pairing of names and the, the, the the appearance of names and what layers are unraveled because of contemplation in that that being said,

00:13:59--> 00:14:38

what else do we see? Allah Subhana Allah says powerloom and Tamil Bashara myth, Luna, this isn't Salah trc in verse 15, Caroma antem Illa Verschuren Mithuna WOMMA nzlr Rahman amici, you are simply a human being like us, and a man did not reveal anything and so again, the attribution of the revelation of the Quran is attributed to or Rama and we see that being unique as well. Allah Subhana Allah even when it comes to acts of worship and obedience, it's never attributed to any other name in the Quran, other than the majestic phrase Love Luciana. The majestic phrase Love origin Allah.

00:14:40--> 00:14:59

Allah subhanaw taala he says, but like, I mean will be ly believe in Allah right? So when it comes to belief, believing in Allah subhanho wa Taala to the majestic phrase lovely which Allah Allah Allah, but Allah subhana wa Tada he says COVID Who are Rahman who am and maybe in Surah thermographers 29

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

say he is a man and OB. Say he is a man. We believe in our Rama even when it comes to seeking refuge

00:15:12--> 00:15:27

I seek refuge and is the other and even in Dr. Maria Maria salaam What does she say? pilot in the old man he Minka in contact. In Quinta Kenya, say I believe I seek refuge in our right man.

00:15:28--> 00:15:47

Right and ALLAH SubhanA dies as was stated bIllahi min ash shaytaan seek refuge in Allah with our collective Quran first aid Billa when you recite the Quran, then seek refuge in Allah subhana data in the name of the gelada but we also see is the other in the name of Rama in the oh the Rama anemic I seek refuge in a man from you.

00:15:48--> 00:16:27

I'm saying all of this to say by now we should be noticing like okay, like a rock man. There's something unique about it, but there's actually so much more said that has been mentioned 57 times. And if you were to look at all 57 And just look into the verses and the connotations and all of that, you'd be able to pull up a lot as well. So let's go with some more Allah subhanaw taala even when it comes to he says seeking refuge seeking refuge and seeking assistance er cannot go do what you're gonna stay in is Tiana. It is seeking assistance. We see that also with the name of Allah Rahman Allah and Sawtell MBR verse 112 He says whare buena Raha man on Mr. Han? Allah merciful. Our

00:16:27--> 00:16:53

Lord is a man Elmo Stan the one who you know how you say hola hola Mr. Han? Allah is the One who I seek assistance from. Allah is a Rama My Lord is Rama, the one who I seek assistance from and Amato's one over that which you are attributing also when it comes to sujood. Even when it comes to the act of worship of sujood, Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah 14 verse 60, were either clear Allah whom was Judo or rock man,

00:16:55--> 00:17:19

and when it is said to them, prostrate to a rock man, prostrate to Rama, Carlu Amara man and as Julie Mata Madrona was the whom knew Fuhrer and what did they say to them prostrate to a rock man, they say and who is a rock man what is a rock maturi prostrate to wherever you order us to whichever you order us and he keeps them in a version. But prostration here is attributed to a rock man as well. What about fear?

00:17:21--> 00:17:44

When we're talking about the worship of the heart, fear, love and hope. Allah subhana wa dawn he talks about your showing out of the home they fear their Lord, they fear your showing Allah they fear Allah Subhana Allah, but Allah subhanaw taala also attributed his fear their fear to our black man in nema 20 Euro Manitoba Deke Hashirama and be late for the shoot will be a mafia team. I didn't get him

00:17:45--> 00:18:21

in Surah Yaseen, verse 11 Allah says you only warn those who follow the message and fear of ramen and fear of ramen and give them glad tidings of forgiveness and noble reward woman a man Harsha Romana, believe your job is going to be Muneeb and solid covers 33. Allah subhana data says those who feared a man in in with regards to the unseen they feared or man with regard to the unseen and they came with a heart returning and repentance. And even with the drought, even with drought, ALLAH SubhanA data says quoted or Allah or widow Rahman, Allah says say

00:18:23--> 00:19:13

call upon Allah, or make dua to Allah Man, am Matthew fellow who is married who is now whoever you call upon to Him belong the most beautiful names To Him belongs to names, even when it comes to fasting, even when it comes to fasting and sort of Maria Maria Maria sinau munchies fasting. Allah subhanaw taala says for Cooley, why should I be a courier hyena for him Tara in the mean unabashedly I hadn't for Coli in integral to the man is OMA eat and drink. And if you see anybody, if you see anybody, then say that I am fasting, a fast that I have offered to man, I am fasting a fast frogman. And so even fasting is attributed to Allah subhanho data. What about the Dominion in general? The

00:19:13--> 00:19:57

universe and the kingdom and all of that, Elmo cuyama Isn't it Hakoda Rama? What can added caffeine? What can they omit out of caffeine I see a lot in Surah four, verse 26. The dominion on this day, in truth belongs to Rama and is a day for the disbelievers that is incredibly difficult. Even when it comes to intercession and then intercession in the Quran, we see it attributed only to the name of Allah subhanaw taala let Cooley Law Shafia Shiva to Jamie Cooley Law Shiva to call Elijah to Jamie and say to Allah subhana dat is the intercession is the intercession completely. Allahu Allah Allah Allah who had hailed him until it gets to men that led Yeshua Ando elaborate evening. Shiva

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

intercession is attributed to Allah Subhana Allah

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

On the Day of Judgment, nobody can intercede. No one will be able to speak other than without that

00:20:07--> 00:20:13

allowance of intercession by Allah no one will be able to intercede and so we also see

00:20:15--> 00:20:22

Allah subhanho data saying sorta never lie Emily Hakuna shefa 11 evina la hora man

00:20:23--> 00:21:08

Illa Manitoba and Rahmani Anna rather lie on the Pune, Shiva, il many Tada and de la manga and later on Allah subhana wa Dionysus, actually that's from sort of the Nova and also in surah Taha, let me translate that one first, none will have the power of intercession except he who are taken from the Most Merciful covenant. So Shiva is attributed to again the name of a man and in surah Taha, verse 109, Yeoman, even Latin for shafa. In Amman, Elina, Lahore, right, Manu, what are the Allahu Allah, on the Day of Judgment, there will be no intercession except for the one whom our man gives permission to and is pleased with their speech. No one will intercede on the Day of Judgment, no one

00:21:08--> 00:21:51

will be able to speak, no one will be able to approach Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to try to write the reasons why we intercede in this world is because the one who we are interceding to the one who our intercession is being done to we can you know, we might be able to twist their arm right in this world, we might be able to convince them we might be able to we might have done we might have a favor over them. So we intercede. But Allah subhana data says on the Day of Judgment, there's no intercession. Nobody. Nobody won't intercede on the Day of Judgment in lemon Edie and Allah Who Rama except whom Allah subhanaw taala gives permission to what are the Allahu Allah and He is pleased

00:21:51--> 00:21:55

with their speech accepts their work, even when it comes to the description of Demna.

00:21:57--> 00:22:05

Even the description of denona Allah Subhana Allah Allah says what sort of medium verse 61 Gen nathi adenine Lety were added manually by the hillbilly

00:22:07--> 00:22:14

the gardens of paradise that a man has promised his servants in the unseen

00:22:15--> 00:23:04

indeed his promise has ever been coming. And so Jannat they have been promised by a man. Allah Subhana Allah Danny says, Why oh my national mood Akina Isla Rahmani with that. Allah says on the Day of Judgment, when we gather the righteous to the Most Merciful, they come to a Rama as a delegation, and even on the Day of Judgment itself before the entrance into paradise, on the Day of Judgment in solid DRC in verse 52, Allah Subhana Allah says Carlu Yahweh, let remember I said I'm in Medina has our other man was at the helm of Saudi on the Day of Judgment when the disbelievers will say will be to us well to us, who resurrected us from our sleeping place in Medina, the place where

00:23:04--> 00:23:05

we've been laying

00:23:06--> 00:23:07

her that

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

this is the promise of our Rama the Day of Judgment is the promise of a Rama and we don't see this with other names. We see this with the name Allah to some degree a very slight degree we see this with the name, Allah Hey,

00:23:23--> 00:24:05

what Allahu Allahu wa la ilaha illa who are Rahman Al Rahim, for example, so that Bacara your Lord is one Lord La ilaha illa who there's nothing worthy of worship except for him. Or Rahman Rahim. Allah Rahman Rahim right, so we see a Rahman AR Rahim here with the concept of Guru here, but you don't see any name. Any name, having this level of concepts being attributed to it. Allah Subhana Allah says in surah number this is the verse that I wanted to get to in sort of the nub earlier, you owe me a call Maru, who will manage to soften ly attack a lagoon in lemon as in Idaho ramen or Kyla Saba on the Day of Judgment, when everyone will will stand the the angels and Gibreel soft fanatical

00:24:05--> 00:24:41

limo they will stand in a row they will not speak in laminaria Allahu Rahman except those who are like man gives permission to Rakata Saba and they speak that which is true. Allah subhanho wa Taala he says also about the Day of Judgment Yoma isn't yet yet of your own a de la jolla were hush it la sua to La man fella to smile in LA Hamsa. That day, everyone will follow will follow the call of the caller with no deviation. Everybody will just you know, this concept of everyone will follow the call of the caller without any deviation. I remember I took a flight one time

00:24:42--> 00:24:43

from

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

you know what, let me just say a major Muslim city right a major city in the Muslim world, a major city that has a direct flight to JFK, okay. to New York City. And I remember in that major airport

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

or

00:25:02--> 00:25:08

everybody was acting a fool. Everybody was acting a fool. You know, like when, when you are

00:25:10--> 00:25:56

when you're in a Muslim country and you have an American passport, people walk with a little bit of an arrogance. And even as they're in the airport, because they're American, right? They're American, they would not listen to the police officer, they would not listen to security, they would not let they're being told to stand in line. And they're not they're, you know, speaking in their broken English accents flexing, right? They're flexing on on these, you know, these, these Moroccan guys. And I'm just like, anyway, so I remember, I remember just being annoyed at that whole scene, right, for whatever reason, flight delays happen, all of that stuff happens. But the you know, there was

00:25:56--> 00:25:58

just a lot of arrogance there, in my opinion.

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

And I remember when we landed at JFK, so we landed in New York airport.

00:26:05--> 00:26:30

And it's the same people, right? We're the same people, right? And American citizens and all of that, right. Nothing's changed. Right. But what's changed this? You know, the attitude changed. Oh, the attitude changed. Those people who are talking to those guys, those police officers and those right in the Muslim country, when we landed at JFK, and those officers said stand in this line right here. Oh, they were standing.

00:26:31--> 00:26:41

It we were delayed at JFK to there was no yelling back and forth. There was no, there was no flexing on those police officers. No, there wasn't there was no flexing on those custom agents. I'll tell you that right now.

00:26:44--> 00:26:49

Allah subhanho wa Taala says there was not a word right at JFK there was not a word

00:26:51--> 00:27:06

would align myself with Anna and multiply that by who knows how much on the Day of Judgment. On the Day of Judgment, Allah subhana data says on that day, everyone will stand no deviation they'll stand in line. Nobody will. And all voices will be stilled.

00:27:08--> 00:27:09

Complete silence.

00:27:11--> 00:27:54

So you will not hear except a whisper whisper of what will they be talking? No, it'll be the woods the whisper of footsteps. That's all the last part of that and make that easy for us. Allah subhanaw taala he says even with the rights to the love that he creates, in Alladhina, Amanu Ambleside you had say a jar hula hoop man who does that those who do righteousness or man will create between them love of law will create and so by the way one of the fruits of our Ramadan right because we're contemplating the Hold on in the Levine I'm gonna slide how sage I learned that those who do believe and do righteousness are wrong man is going to create between you love and so when you find that you

00:27:54--> 00:28:17

love you're believing brother or you love you're believing Sister, you know that all right man did that. Right because man is the one who said the or Allah Subhana Allah says Allah man is the one who does that. So a man is the one one of the fruits of the name of a man is that he creates love between the righteous Allah Subhana Allah data he says, I mean

00:28:18--> 00:28:19

Okay, how about this

00:28:23--> 00:28:25

one of the fruits of Ramadan.

00:28:26--> 00:28:46

You know what's really interesting about Rama is that we generally think of Ramadan as you know, a name that invokes hope and fear, hope rather hope and love. But we also see that a Rahman invokes fear in the Quran. And that's really interesting aroma and being used to invoke fear.

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

Wash it or Sua. Everybody's silent in the presence of a man

00:28:54--> 00:29:27

in lemon Aryan, hola, hola man, except those whom are Rahmani gives permission to write we see the man when this stillness is described on the Day of Judgment. This complete submission is described on the detriment on Russia man is the name that's being used. And here Allah subhana data says quoted many o'clock come in many. He says many accolades can be laid you in a hurry Mr. Rahman called my o'clock lady when her demeanor Rama, Bella Houma, and we cannot be him or you don't say who can protect you at night or day from a Rama.

00:29:28--> 00:29:39

That's really interesting, who can protect you by night and by day from a Rama you think? Why would I need to be protected from a right man? Why would I need to be protected from Oklahoma?

00:29:41--> 00:29:53

Why would I need to be protected from a man by whom and decree robbed him? You know why? Because when the one who punishes you is man, what does that say about you?

00:29:56--> 00:29:57

When a man punishes you,

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

the one who

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

is more merciful to you than your own mother and father.

00:30:05--> 00:30:11

What does that say about your crimes? You know when when the easiest professor in the entire university fails you

00:30:13--> 00:30:27

when the easiest professor you go to like whatever rating there is for your professor, and this guy has got five stars you do not have to show up. You literally just have to show up and you will get not you will not just get a C, you will get an A

00:30:28--> 00:30:29

and you still fail.

00:30:31--> 00:30:36

What does that say about you? And so when a man punishes you ly

00:30:38--> 00:31:16

GVD let it sit down he said what he said whoever experiences the month of Ramadan and is not forgiven May Allah distance him and Rasul Allah cellulitis and him said, Atomy, like, at some point for you to be forgiven and Ramadan. It's like a participation. It's a participation award. Honestly, it's like a participation award. You just got to show up, and you're forgiven so much so that if you somehow are so talented, that you are able to live to see it on Madonna and you're still not forgiven Djibouti does like May Allah distance this person I'm going to sort of the last of the last Adam says Add me like how do you experience a month in which the devils are chained? Get paradises

00:31:16--> 00:31:30

gates of paradise are open and the gates of the Hellfire are closed. And all of this is facilitated for you. You are playing a video game with a cheat code you have 99 lives you have full health you have full everything and Ramadan.

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

And if somehow you still like die, right and you still fail, you still

00:31:37--> 00:31:38

may Allah distance you.

00:31:39--> 00:31:50

That's what God says. And Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says me when a Ramadan punishes what does that say about that individual say, who can protect you at night or by day from a Rama

00:31:52--> 00:32:14

so this is a quick overview of some of the verses in whichever Rahman is mentioned in the Quran. And we also recognize that even the Sunnah of the prophets of Allah it is and it says the most beloved names to Allah are Abdullah and have the right man. Right we see a lot man. Also with its uniqueness there, obviously Abdullah, but I'm thrilled man as well.

00:32:16--> 00:32:19

Now that being said, to kind of just wrap it up,

00:32:21--> 00:32:29

the fruit of this name is we have to ask ourselves, Allah is Allah man. Am I Merciful? Allah loves mercy.

00:32:30--> 00:33:02

Am I merciful? Do I forgive other people? Do I overlook other people's faults? Do I make excuses for people sometimes as a Muslim community, we're harsher over each other. We are harsher to each other than we are to other people, outside of our community. We will make excuses for other individuals but we do not make excuses for each other. Sometimes that harshness is felt by our family members, the people who are closest to us, Allah Subhana Allah, the Prophet cellulitis and even before that, he not before that, but the prophets of Elijah said them he says.

00:33:05--> 00:33:06

He says,

00:33:07--> 00:33:09

a raw homeowner, hammer home rod man.

00:33:11--> 00:33:54

Those who are merciful will experience mercy from a rock man. Ill hammelmann Fill out your hammock, Memphis sama. Have mercy on those on earth. The one who is in the heavens will have mercy on you. So have mercy on your siblings, have mercy on your children, have mercy on your spouse, have mercy on your parents, have mercy on your employees, have mercy on your co workers have mercy on all of those people on social media, you don't know their backgrounds and their upbringings and their stories and make excuses for them and forgive them and everything that you can do. Because if you do not have mercy on those on earth, the one who is in the heavens will not have mercy on you. The Prophet

00:33:54--> 00:34:28

salallahu idea said them was kissing one of his children, this beautiful manifestation of mercy. And it is amazing when you look at children and you see just how incredibly weak they are, they are so in need of their parents. And you'll never appreciate this until you become a parent. And then you will look at your own child and you'll say I can't believe I was in this incredible state of vulnerability at one point myself. And did my parents wake up seven times in a night for me like this? And did they hold me like this? And did they laugh when I cried like this? And did they do everything that they did for me with this incredible forbearance and patience and hoping for

00:34:28--> 00:35:00

goodness for me and they pray in the night for me like this? And all because you would not be able to survive in this world if Allah subhanho data did not put this protective mechanism of parents for you. And yet, the province I sent him is kissing one of these children because it's not just about physical protection, but there's also emotional nurturing that is involved in this love that is communicated through body language manifested in a kiss. And the prophets Allah sent him is kissing one of his children and man says hello so what might you kiss your children? I have 10 children. I've never kissed any of them.

00:35:00--> 00:35:21

Like a macho like, I'm gonna dude, man never kissed any of my children, right. And until now in some cultures, you know, the men, you know, they won't hold the child, they won't carry the child. You know, they'll make jokes and they'll say carry her bags but don't carry the baby, or this, or I think it's the opposite. They'll say carry the baby, but don't carry her bags. But

00:35:22--> 00:35:24

I might agree with but anyway,

00:35:25--> 00:35:30

that's either there nor there. But in any case, I'm just kidding. The province. The lady has said them, he said to him.

00:35:33--> 00:35:49

What do you want me to do? He didn't say like, you're such a strong man. You're amazing. He said, What do you want me to do? That Allah subhanaw taala has removed mercy from your heart. Like you're not a tough guy for that. What do you want me to do that Allah subhanaw taala has removed mercy from your heart.

00:35:50--> 00:36:09

Mela, your huntleigh your heart. Whoever does not have mercy will not experience mercy. And so an action item would be to ask the people who know you to ask the people who know you ask you're not like your boys and your friends and stuff like that. Maybe if they're very close to you, but you're your immediate family. Am I merciful?

00:36:10--> 00:36:50

Do you find me to be merciful? Do you find me to be forgiving? Do you find me to be accommodating? Do you find me to what is Rama Rama is wanting good for other people. Rama is wanting good for other people do I want good for other people to want to bring them closer to Allah subhana wa Tada. Because whoever does not have Rama, or not experience Rama. And by the way, just one last thing. And then I'll end. When we talk about I believe if there are any marketing gurus here, any branding gurus like we need y'all to step up. We need y'all to step up. Because I'll tell you right now, that when if I asked you the question, and I say

00:36:51--> 00:37:09

what is one word you think of when you think of Christianity? You'll say love. Christianity is love. What is one word you think of? When you think of Buddhism? You will say peace, its marketing, its branding. What's one word you think of when you think of Islam?

00:37:12--> 00:37:21

You already know. And so if there is one word that people should think of in this world, when it comes to Islam, it should be mercy.

00:37:23--> 00:37:24

It should be mercy.

00:37:25--> 00:37:57

Winner of Sir NACA Illa. Nathaniel Alameen, the private satellite as Angela was not sent, except as a mercy to mankind, not mankind, the world's he was sent at the province lesson and being sent to the messenger is Mercy for Animals. The province of Allah has said it I'm being sent is mercy for the environment is a mercy for trees. It is a mercy for insects. It is a mercy for everything.

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

And so the followers of the prophets lie Selim their presence should be a mercy for the world as well because they're living, right they're Living the Legacy they're living the religion that the prophets Allah light is and then was sent with and was left with, right. But when we think of Muslims, practicing Muslims, we don't think of incredible mercy.

00:38:19--> 00:38:43

That's a problem with us. But that's also a marketing problem. And we need to work on that we need to Allah Subhana Allah calls himself a Rahman and Rahim I mean, that's incredible at the beginning of 113 suitors in the Quran. Bismillah R Rahman Rahim. Now you would naturally think if I'm just being logical here on man is similar to what Rahim

00:38:45--> 00:39:22

so if I've already covered the aspect of Mercy once in our life, man or Rahim, I should use something else right? Like I've already covered mercy. So, man, Al Jabbar right now I want to cover my strength in my power, alcohol, you overpower al Karim the perfect. I need the one who's not in need, I could use Bismillah R Rahman and just put a hole. There's a wide variety of options that will communicate something else about Allah Subhana Allah, but Allah does not want to communicate something else in that place. He says, I want you to know in the name of Allah or by Allah Rahman Rahim every single time

00:39:23--> 00:39:31

and then when you recite sort of advice, how would you recite 17 times a day? Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen just in case you forgot Rahman Al Rahim.

00:39:34--> 00:39:49

His mercy is overwhelming. His mercy is overwhelming. And right now when we're in the last hours of Friday, depending on where you are Friday afternoon, Friday evening, if you still if it's still

00:39:50--> 00:39:59

daylight where you are. Make sure that in the last hour of the day that you are seeking forgiveness and that you are seeking the last pan out that is mercy as we experienced this last Friday and Ramadan

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

And wherever you are this last day of Ramadan invoke ALLAH SubhanA diatas mercy invoke his forgiveness, that Allah subhanaw taala overlook our shortcomings and our faults and that he makes the best of our actions in Ramadan, our last actions because inevitably higher team that actions are judged by their conclusions. And so I would encourage you as well, to rewatch the session that we did last Saturday, the multiple lectures that entire day that was all about finishing strong or that two three hour program about finishing strong, because it's all about how you end the race. It's not about how you begin it. So we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to not make for us in this gathering a sin

00:40:38--> 00:41:12

except that it is forgiven and no stress except that it is relieved and no burden except that it is lifted and no debt except that it is paid for and that there be no sick amongst us except that they are healed the healing, after which there is no ailment, and that there'll be no one who has passed away from our communities except that they are forgiven, and that they are given the status of martyrs for those who have passed away due to the Coronavirus and to have mercy on our brothers and sisters who passed away in the airplane crash today in Pakistan that ALLAH SubhanA data make it a source of good ending for them that they passed away in this month and that Allah beautifies their

00:41:12--> 00:41:35

reception and that He gives their families beautiful patients. And that Allah subhanaw taala grants everyone who has requested our dua, that Allah subhana data grants them ease in their affairs and answers their prayers, and that Allah has mercy on our parents as they raised us while we were young, and to make the best of our days or last days and the best of our moments the day that we meet him. So Allah Allah says and I'm Hamid while audio Cibus and MC MC
