all praises due to Allah Who is magnificent in his essence perfect and his attributes undeniable in His presence. All praise is due to Allah Who has the most magnificent names a praise that is forever for him. A praise that eternally remains may send peace and blessings in their perfect fashion, may send greetings and salutations that are complete and everlasting upon the best of his creation. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a perfect his rank and elevate his station, for he taught us what we did not know. And he gave and he gave and he gave because he loved us. So

00:02:34 --> 00:02:35

I have a friend of mine

00:02:36 --> 00:02:41

who my entire life. His father smoked cigarettes.

00:02:43 --> 00:02:56

There was never a time when I went to this uncle's house, except that he would smoke. When the guests were leaving, he would walk everybody to their car, and he would smoke a cigarette my entire life.

00:02:59 --> 00:03:11

Recently, this friend of mine was talking to me on the phone. He said, You'll never guess what happened. I said what? He said, My father quit smoking, said Allahu Akbar.

00:03:12 --> 00:03:22

His father had been smoking for over 50 years. How did this happen? What is the story? He said, My father has an older brother.

00:03:24 --> 00:03:33

And even though his father was in his late 60s, early 70s, he looked up to this older brother, like a child looks up to their older brother.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:53

He has all of the love and the admiration for his older brother, like he did earlier on in his life. And on one occasion, this older brother had come to visit them from another state. And he stayed with them. And when he was leaving, my friend's mother came up to my friend and she said to him,

00:03:55 --> 00:03:59

asked you, your uncle, to tell your father to stop smoking?

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

And he said, No, I can't do that. i It's not appropriate for me to

00:04:06 --> 00:04:08

to say anything like that. She said, No, go ahead and do it.

00:04:10 --> 00:04:22

And so he went to his uncle. And he said to him, uncle, if you don't mind, could you please ask my dad to stop smoking? And his uncle said, Okay, no problem. I will.

00:04:24 --> 00:04:30

And so when they were at the airport, and they were bidding farewell, his older brother called him to the side.

00:04:31 --> 00:04:34

And he told this, this man

00:04:35 --> 00:04:42

who had been smoking for over 50 years, he said to him, I am completely pleased with you.

00:04:46 --> 00:04:56

If just one thing, he said, what, what is this one thing? He said, Could you quit smoking? He said done

00:04:59 --> 00:05:00

and he never

00:05:00 --> 00:05:01

I smoked cigarettes since

00:05:02 --> 00:05:11

when my friend was telling me this story. I thought what reverence must he have in his heart for his brother?

00:05:13 --> 00:05:27

How great is his brother in his eyes? That one request one request, I won't even say a command, but a request made him stop smoking, a habit that he had for an entire lifetime.

00:05:28 --> 00:05:30

The Scholars say,

00:05:31 --> 00:05:40

my refer to me to her when otusa Hillel Awana. They said knowing the commander makes the commands easy.

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

That when a person has love and reverence for the one who is making the command, you might be willing to run through a wall for someone that you love. You might be willing to go to the extremes to get the pleasure of the one that you respect or the one that you adore, or the one who you want to love you back.

00:06:06 --> 00:06:10

And so one of the beautiful aspects

00:06:11 --> 00:06:19

of making the deen easy for ourselves is to fill our hearts and love with reverence for ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada

00:06:21 --> 00:07:02

so that our deen does not become a matter of do this and do that and do this and do that. But it becomes easier when your heart is filled with reverence and love for the one who is commanding in the first place. And to do that you have to know who Allah subhanho data is. Allah subhana wa Tada says and I'm Ron Paul in quantum to hipbone Allah for Debbie Rooney with Kamala, say if you love Allah, then follow me follow those with Allah light is a lamp, and in doing so Allah subhanaw taala will love you. The objective of everyone who professes to love is to have that love reciprocated ALLAH SubhanA. Allah data says if you follow sort of la salida Salam, I will love you.

00:07:04 --> 00:07:36

And so the more sincere a person is in their statement that they love Allah, the more willing they will be to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but in this brief hold, but I wanted to just share a couple of things. Just a reminder, with regards to who is Allah Subhana Allah to Allah in the first place. Allah subhanaw taala introduces himself and hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen all praises due to Allah verb of the worlds What does love mean? Even mumbled he says in Listen, a lot of he says lack of love Island medical said on mudra and

00:07:38 --> 00:07:59

that the ROB in the Arabic language is the one who takes care of you and provides for you and sustains you and develops you and gives you blessings. And Allah subhanaw taala is lit up for all of the worlds and I mean, you know if you met at that and he says to you, I've got seven children, you know what people say they say that's a lot of mouths to feed

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

10 kids that's a lot of mouths to feed, as if to say that is a weighty Verity, a weighty burden to carry and Allah subhanaw taala says that there is no doubt but on this earth Allah Allah Allah at school ha there is no creature on this earth. 8 billion people wake up every day mouths to feed, how many insects how many creatures that we know and what we don't know. And Allah subhana data says he is the one who provides for them all he is lovable alameen

00:08:27 --> 00:08:48

and Rasulullah sallallahu send them he says that apartment Eman Maratea Billa Helaba will Islami Dino Mohamed salah they send them to be in order Sula. A person tasted the sweetness of faith when they become pleased with Allah subhanaw taala as the rub I am pleased with ALLAH SubhanA diatas don't who's caretaking me, the one who is looking after me the one who's providing for me.

00:08:49 --> 00:09:29

We believe about Allah subhana wa Tada that he is perfect in every way. He is perfect in his wisdom. He is perfect in his knowledge. He is perfect in his power. Allah subhanaw taala says and AYATUL kursi Allah says wish I could see you somehow it will art what I would have whom Allah says that his could see his throne extends beyond the heavens and the earth. And he is not exhausted. He's not weakened, he's not fatigued by maintaining them. And He is the Most High and He is the Most Great. Allah subhanaw taala is perfect in his power. Allah subhana Medina says oh my god that Allah

00:09:30 --> 00:09:33

will autoboot Jamie and Caputo to yomo keyamo.

00:09:34 --> 00:09:46

Meaning Allah subhanaw taala says they didn't give Allah his due right? People did not see Allah as he deserves to be seen when the entire Earth is gathered in His blessed hand.

00:09:48 --> 00:09:59

When the entire Earth is within his grasp on the day of judgment, and the heavens are rolled up in his hand, that is Allah subhana data when you are being told to fear Allah subhana

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

that Allah that is who you are being told to fear.

00:10:03 --> 00:10:41

You are being told to fear the one who is the most powerful, the most great, the one whose knowledge is perfect. Allah subhanaw taala we don't believe that he ever forgets, lie Laura, boi and Sir, my Lord does not forget nor is he ever mistaken, he makes no mistakes. Allah subhanaw taala does not make mistakes liable. He's never mistaken. And so we never ever look at any decree that happens to Allah subhanaw taala and say this was a mistake and sometimes you may not notice the statements that we make a person may say so and so is gone too soon. Nobody's ever gone too soon.

00:10:43 --> 00:10:53

Nobody ever leaves before their time. Allah subhana wa Tada does not make mistakes. God does not make mistakes. Allah subhana wa Tada says, speaking about his knowledge.

00:10:55 --> 00:11:06

Allah says, we're in the home, my father who leave, he has the keys to the unseen lie. Allah who no one knows them except for him. He has the keys to the unseen, where

00:11:07 --> 00:11:46

he will have and he knows what is in the heavens in the earth. What matters to my water cutting Illa Allah Maha and there is no leaf that falls except that he knows it would not have been feasible imagine out nor a grain of sand that ships anywhere in the darkest remotest places of the earth. Without wind. Well, I obviously Neela vikita have been moving, there's nothing that moves except that ALLAH subhanho data knows it. There's not a grain of sand that shifts anywhere except that it is all recorded with Allah subhanaw taala there is no action that we do. There is no thought that we have except that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is aware of it. Allah says Belial Insano Allah and FCA will

00:11:46 --> 00:12:03

see you know, welcome ideal, Allah subhanho data says rarely human beings are aware of what they do, even if they cast forward every excuse, and if a human being is aware of what they think and what they do, and their motives, Allah subhanaw taala is aware as well.

00:12:04 --> 00:12:26

Yeah, Allah Maha you know to ALLAH SubhanA. Allah knows the deception of the eyes, and what our hearts can seal. We believe about Allah Subhana Allah, that he is perfect in his ability. He is perfect in his knowledge, he is perfect in his ability to provide and Allah subhanaw taala is perfect in his forgiveness and I'll end with this.

00:12:27 --> 00:12:30

We are fortunate that we believe in a Lord

00:12:32 --> 00:12:45

who forgives anytime we make a mistake. And anytime we sin, whether we do it we do it intentionally or whether we do it unintentionally. Allah subhana wa Tada says in the livina Fetta mean I want

00:12:46 --> 00:13:22

to go further home either with or without my w. Allah subhana data says those who persecuted the believing men and the believing women and then did not repent. They will have the punishment of the Hellfire. Some of the scholars consider this to be ology if you could tabula they consider this to be the most hope inducing verse in the book of Allah. Why they said, because Allah Subhana Allah is saying that those who persecuted the believing men and women, meaning persecuting meaning, what meaning tortured, meaning what meaning killed, meaning what meaning abuse, meaning what meaning harm, incredibly, and yet Allah subhanaw taala says, and they did not repent, they will be punished,

00:13:23 --> 00:13:36

meaning that if they repented, what would happen to them, they will not be punished, they will be forgiven. There is an exception to the rule. And that exception, infuses incredible hope in us, that as long as I repent to Allah Subhana Allah data,

00:13:38 --> 00:13:52

I can be in a position to be forgiven by Allah. We don't need to do anything to be forgiven by Allah subhanaw taala other than simply come to him and repent to Him Rasulullah sallallahu they're setting them in the Hadith as reported by Timothy the hadith of unassuming nomadic.

00:13:54 --> 00:14:16

He simply says that Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, Adam, in Nicoma doubt any water Joe Tony, offer to laka Allah Makana Minko with everybody. Oh, son of Adam, as long as you call upon me and have hope in me, I will forgive you no matter what you have done. And I will not mind you have been either below both of us.

00:14:18 --> 00:14:57

For Mr. 14 over two lakh if your sins were to reach the sky, and then you sought forgiveness from me, I would forgive you know Annika data and ebook Robin or the Hatha Yoga, if you were to meet me with the Earth's weights and sin. And then you sought forgiveness from me not committing ship with me. Let's say to curb your karate hammock fear I would meet you with what is equal to the forgiveness as long as the person doesn't commit, share it with ALLAH SubhanA data. And on the Day of Judgment, the Prophet saw the light is and then tells us that Allah subhanaw taala will bring forward somebody and he will say to him, Allah at Hello Can I like them, I love them and shake a

00:14:57 --> 00:14:59

quantum of 30 and if you had what is equal

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

See the entire world? Would you give it all up to save yourself right now on the Day of Judgment? Would you give up a billion people right now to save yourself on the Day of Judgment? Would you give up millions? Not millions of dollars give up the the wealth of the entire world whatever's on it. If you were to count that all up, would you give it all up right now?

00:15:22 --> 00:15:41

The person will say yes, I'll give it all up right now. I'll take it BMP. A billion people I'll throw them all into the Hellfire if that'll save me. I'll do that all. Allah subhana Didot say to him, look at Mr. Touka Bhima Hua Hua nomadic, I commanded you with what is less than that much less than that I didn't command I didn't require all of that from you.

00:15:43 --> 00:15:50

Allah to shake up shake, that you do not come and share it with me for a beat to a learn to shake, but you refuse to accept to commission because Allah subhanaw taala.

00:15:53 --> 00:16:06

When everybody else goes and worships whatever it is that they worship, there are those who worship money. There are those who worship themselves there are those who worship beauty there are those who worship idols, there are those who worship people.

00:16:07 --> 00:16:18

It is our greatest privilege that we go out into this world and we worship Allah subhana wa Tada Akula Master Master Master for Allah, Allah, we're looking for stuff all over him.

00:16:24 --> 00:16:26

hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah.

00:16:28 --> 00:16:32

I began with a story I'll end with a story I met a 18 year old

00:16:33 --> 00:17:17

foster child, or no he was given up for adoption as as a child. He was non Muslim. We were both 18 years old at the time we were on a bus, one of those buses going from state to state and I was getting to know him. And he told me that when he was a child, he was given up for adoption by his mom. And his parents loved him as perfectly as any parents could love their child said there was they didn't leave me wanting for anything my adopted parents. But he said when I became 18 I wanted to go and meet my biological mother. He said there were questions about me that I could not answer until I met her. Did I have her face? Do I have her smile? Do I have her anger? Do I have her

00:17:17 --> 00:17:23

sarcasm? Do I have her hands I need to know who I am. I cannot know who I am. Until I know who she is.

00:17:24 --> 00:17:31

And if he spent 10 years of his life, or 20 years of his life, and if he toured the world trying to find his mother, we'd recognize that that is a journey worth taking.

00:17:33 --> 00:17:41

But the greatest loss is not that a person goes through life not knowing who their mom is or who their dad is. But the greatest loss in life is that a person goes through life not knowing who Allah is.

00:17:43 --> 00:18:15

Not knowing who Allah subhana data is. When Allah describes himself so vividly in the Quran. Allah says, Allah who led the Halacha Saba SML was in Wamena out of the Mithila, who in the last version of the Tanakh he says yeah, xs, M Robaina Han, Lita, Allah, mu n Allah, Allah cliche and Kadir when Allah put the health of equilibria in Allah. Allah says Allah is going to create a seven heavens and seven Earths, and he made the command descend between them. The question then becomes why Why did Allah create all of this, Allah says, so that you can come to know

00:18:17 --> 00:18:50

that Allah is Able to do all things, and that he's encompassed everything with his knowledge, the Heavens and Earth were created, so that you and I can come to know who Allah subhana data is. We ask Allah Azza to allow us to hear the speech and follow the best of it.
