00:00:01--> 00:00:06

Alhamdulillah de Lyonne me in Ottawa

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

Monica woman de

00:00:18--> 00:00:23

todo gonna stare at

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


00:00:40--> 00:00:44


00:00:54--> 00:01:40

salatu salam Allah ambia mursaleen Nabina Muhammad Anwar early he was actually he remains a mama bear. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My dearest brothers and sisters, welcome to this third lesson now, the theory of sort of 30 we've got to just verse number two, and humbly learner will it mean we began last week speaking about and hamdulillah we said that the first the second verse and hamdu, lillahi, Rabbil aalameen, we can split it into two parts, and hamdulillah and not bill me. And today inshallah, by the end of this lesson, we will have covered the entire verse in sha Allah. So what did we say last week, we said and hamdulillah the word patent is a very deep,

00:01:40--> 00:02:29

rich word in terms of its meaning, and basically has two main meanings. Anyone remember what those were, one is sugar, and the other one is, center. Very good center. Sugar means thanks, gratitude and center means praise, we explain how those two things are very different. Sometimes you praise and sometimes you thanks, you give thanks. And hand, okay comprises of both. And also we did something else, which is we'll start with, we spoke about the difference between and now, as a verb. We said there were two main differences. We said that as for the noun, as for the noun, as for the verb, rather, it is caged by time, it happened in a particular tense, past, present or future. And

00:02:29--> 00:02:35

it is due or dependent. So if I said, read, you think to yourself, who read

00:02:36--> 00:03:25

this do a dependent, I have to say that there is someone doing that action? And when did they do it? What are they done in the past or the present or the future as for noun ism, it is timeless. It is timeless, yeah, reading the idea of reading, it's not caged by time. It does not do dependent. And based on that, we extracted a few lessons. One of them was that by using hunt, by using hand by saying and handler instead of saying, for example, murder law, I praise a thank Allah for saying national law, but instead of saying Alhamdulillah, using the eastern version, you've got extra meaning. The meaning is stronger, because it means praise is always for a lot. Because Islam is

00:03:25--> 00:04:06

timeless, right? So it's timeless is always for Allah. We're here now we praise Allah, but we weren't always here. What about when you are not here? What about when we will not be here? doesn't allow deserve praise, and thanks to them too. Yes, that is what allow us is one of the reasons behind it. Now with that idea in mind, between Islam being stronger, and timeless, and well being weaker, and time bound, if we could shine a light on the whole of sort of Fatiha, and see where the isms are, and where the firenza where the nouns are, and where the verbs are, you will see something like this. Okay. And I believe this in your course notes.

00:04:08--> 00:04:10

And you see in your course notes is the what page the

00:04:11--> 00:04:11


00:04:13--> 00:04:17

is paced world. Now, the

00:04:18--> 00:04:24

words that are in black, they are is they are nouns and the words that are

00:04:26--> 00:04:33

in gray. Okay, in gray. They are verbs. Having a look at it, what do you notice straightaway? Where do you find the verbs?

00:04:35--> 00:04:37

In the first half or the second half?

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

In the second opera, if you notice, yeah. Second off, what do we say about the verbs? What's the difference between the verb and the noun? case by time? And what does that mean exactly? It means that it's weaker, yes, weaker, and it's dependent. So the second half contains the verbs the first half any verbs in the first half

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

No verbs. Pure isn't the only

00:05:04--> 00:05:15

interesting thing is this upon law, the first three verses al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen urashima Rahim, Maliki Ahmed de are speaking about who? Allah.

00:05:17--> 00:05:27

He cannot go to what kind of staring at their nostrils most of us are not under the non duality mobileme is speaking about who

00:05:29--> 00:05:30

about creation? Us?

00:05:32--> 00:05:36

What can we get from that? What is that telling you?

00:05:40--> 00:05:53

Here's the weaker version of sentences being used when creation is being spoken about. The stronger version is being used when speaking about a lot. What else do we know about Islam compared to a verb? and Islam compared to a fair, it is?

00:05:54--> 00:06:05

time Yes, time dependent and versus timeless? Which one is being used to speak about a lot words that are timeless, for a lot is eternal.

00:06:06--> 00:06:41

As for creation, temporary, and look at the words Panama is beautiful, isn't it? And even the way our last mother spoke about sort of 30 her in the Hadith, which is how these Pudsey allows a person to salata, benei ouabain Abdi, this thing, Allah said, I split the Salah, meaning sort of Fatiha between me and my slave, half and half, a lot. The first half is about a lot. But even the words that are chosen are words that are timeless.

00:06:43--> 00:06:48

And the words that are chosen for the slaves, words that are temporary verbs.

00:06:49--> 00:06:53

Interesting thing also is the verse in the middle, what's the middle verse?

00:06:56--> 00:07:02

He cannot do where he can stand. Okay, we'll speak about obviously, when we get to it.

00:07:03--> 00:07:05

It's half half,

00:07:07--> 00:07:08

half is some half

00:07:09--> 00:07:29

the half here, can you see the Yakuza? Is the is he again is that isn't Naboo understanding is the verb. You know what those words mean? He yaka means you alone? Who is that? talking about?

00:07:31--> 00:07:43

Naboo we worship? Who's that talking about? Us? Which one is the verb? the one speaking about us? Which is the now the one speaking about a lot.

00:07:45--> 00:08:21

Amazing. Yeah, amazing. This is any sort of Fatiha is this like, as treasures inside? Yeah. And the amazing thing is that in this in this lesson, what we will what we will do in Sharla, is we will say a lot of parties said this, what is the alternative to saying the same thing in different words, and analyze the differences, and then come to the conclusion that the way Allah said it is the best way possible? Yeah, the best way possible. And the ability to do this to words,

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

is something you can really only do with a book of Allah. You can never analyze someone's speech to this level, can you and to pick out things and to analyze, to cross reference and to just go back and forth and pondering over in fact, if you do that, for example, someone Someone wrote you an email, a lengthy email, a personal one, you read it once, and then you read it again. And then you ask yourself, like we're doing here, how come they use these words here, they use those words here. Maybe the more you read it, the more mistakes you'll find, oh, there's a grammar. There's a grammar mistake, there's Oh, I forgot to use the capital letter, etc, etc. To know the opposite of the

00:09:00--> 00:09:17

Quran. The more you read, the more the more amazing it becomes. Yeah, and this is what allows a fella who Koran Do they not reflect over the problem. Yeah, if you were, you would be able to see amazing things. Male lawmakers.

00:09:19--> 00:09:20

Okay, so

00:09:21--> 00:09:39

the first addition to what we studied last week is the following. We said how comprises of two meanings, sugar and Cena thanks and praise. There's more to it than this. There's two more meanings inside of him. And that is the meaning of

00:09:41--> 00:09:42


00:09:43--> 00:09:59

love and veneration when you say hamdulillah you are expressing love and all of the thing that you are praising. Okay, this is the first edition. The second edition is that you are praising out of your

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

own free will.

00:10:02--> 00:10:04

Because you choose to.

00:10:05--> 00:10:18

Interesting. What does that mean? Like, can you pray someone? Not out of choice? Does that happen? Give me some examples of when that happens when someone praises another person, but not because they really want to.

00:10:21--> 00:10:26

In politics, okay, what do you mean by politics? So this microphone is the first thing to do is upset No

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

No, go ahead.

00:10:34--> 00:10:52

Okay, so to flatter Yeah. So like the Boss, boss man. You want to promote Yeah, you start praising the boss man. Yeah, you're praising but it's not genuine praise it's just natural. Any other instances where you might praise someone?

00:10:53--> 00:10:54


00:10:56--> 00:11:05

Okay, you praise the queen in order to hopefully you know he may have he might give you something. Okay. Same thing praising in order to flatter someone.

00:11:06--> 00:11:08

Any other reasons why you want praise?

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

for chocolate.

00:11:15--> 00:11:19

If you can open this you want to get some chocolates at the back that lock up to your feet.

00:11:20--> 00:11:21


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


00:11:24--> 00:11:25

To get some way would you mean

00:11:27--> 00:11:29

because this is what the brother said?

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

Yes, sorry. The Brotherhood has

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

to be

00:11:38--> 00:11:41

to be appreciated by the person you're praising. Okay? anything different?

00:11:49--> 00:11:49


00:11:52--> 00:11:56

Ah, okay. Very good. You can be compelled to present it.

00:11:58--> 00:12:16

Give you an example. Give an example of your wife Mashallah. She tried really hard to make you some good food. You know, ever since you went to your friend's house, and you tasted his wife Briana, you've been going on about that. Since she said you know, the same bedtime

00:12:17--> 00:12:22

brings up Briana. Briana, Briana is good. is not as good though.

00:12:24--> 00:12:30

Can you say that to be upset with you? You feel compelled to press the button.

00:12:33--> 00:13:04

So the idea is that you can praise but not our choice. Yeah. And in Arabic to actually have a word for that the word for praising What can be done? Not our choice is mad. What is it mad? Okay, mad. Your hand and you got mad. If you praise someone out of choice, that would be the hand division. If you'd praise someone not our choice, either because you're trying to flatter them or you're compelled. That will be mad.

00:13:06--> 00:13:27

Okay, so what do we say? We said two extra things out of love and all and out of choice. Okay out of choice, but this is hand okay? This is from that you are praising Allah, you're thanking him because you genuinely want to and you are expressing to Allah, love and all when you're saying that and hamdulillah.

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


00:13:30--> 00:14:00

a loss of power that never said a Shaku Lila, gratitude is to Allah. Thanks to Allah. Even though the word ham does have the meaning inside of it of thanking Allah. How is saying hamdulillah better than saying a shoe could lilla How is saying hand which means praise and thanks is to Allah better than just saying thanks is to do to Allah. What do you think matters?

00:14:01--> 00:14:04

You praising Allah as well. Okay, very good. Yes.

00:14:06--> 00:14:09

It's okay. Very good. So the sugar

00:14:10--> 00:14:30

you might not be expressing love. That's more to do with mud. Mud instead of hump mud. You may be praising Allah the stuff a lot, not because you really want to and out of love. But sugar is just about a thing. That's okay. So the idea of saying thanks is not as good as saying that. Why?

00:14:31--> 00:14:33

Why is it better? Yes.

00:14:38--> 00:14:39


00:14:42--> 00:14:48

Okay, very good. The brother said you may thank many people, but you may not necessarily praise many people. Okay.

00:14:49--> 00:14:51

You know, what do you say thank you to someone for

00:14:54--> 00:14:55

appreciation of what

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

you say thank you for being intelligent to someone.

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

Do you say thank you for?

00:15:03--> 00:15:07

Exactly? Yeah, you say? That's what he said. He says,

00:15:13--> 00:15:20

The brother said, You stay thank you because someone did something for you. True, no, it's true.

00:15:21--> 00:15:26

But the idea is that you thank Allah powder for everything he does for you.

00:15:27--> 00:15:28

However, that is,

00:15:30--> 00:15:40

that is a little bit to do with you, isn't it? And to do with a lot to do with you, and a lot, and it's more to do with what you gained from the last panel.

00:15:41--> 00:15:59

So if you take yourself out of the equation, and you want to say something just for Allah, about who Allah is, as well as what Allah does, then you need to say Alhamdulillah because if you just had sugar Lila, you're just talking about what Allah does.

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

You get this. So if you say thank you, you can't say thank you for being powerful. Thank you for being wise. Thank you for being knowledgeable. You can't It doesn't make sense does it? So you want to say thank you and you want to praise Allah for what he does and who he is. His that as well as is.

00:16:18--> 00:16:40

And in order to capture that meaning. You have to use the word hand and hamdulillah Okay, another thing about the word hamdulillah Kala never said hum, don't Leela. Allah said Alhamdulillah there isn't any flan. You know, the Elif lamb usually translates as the, okay. But in Arabic, it can it doesn't have to mean that.

00:16:41--> 00:17:24

In this occasion, even tamer, Allah said his Elif Lamb of is still drop is still Herat means all encompassed meant, as if to say every single type of praise you can imagine. is for Allah subhanaw taala Yeah, that's what it means. Every single type of praise and thanks so you can imagine should be for Allah subhanaw taala and then the word a lot you already mentioned the meaning of the word Allah. What do we say that we said this word Allah, it captures all of the names and attributes of a loss of habit. Remember this? Yeah, all of the names and attributes are loss of power of Allah. So if you think about that, now, you want to praise you want to make 100 Allah

00:17:25--> 00:17:28

types of hands and thanks to Allah.

00:17:29--> 00:17:41

But the thing is, if you use for example, the the name alcoholic, what does it mean? The Creator, and you said, an hamdu lillahi Allah.

00:17:42--> 00:17:46

That would mean all praise and thanks to the Creator.

00:17:47--> 00:18:00

Or you could say, and Adam, and hamdu lillahi alim. All praise and thanks to the whole knowlegeable right. But Allah Subhana never used any of those names allow us the name Allah.

00:18:01--> 00:18:09

What do you think that is? I mean, what's Why is it better to use the name Allah than harlot for not

00:18:11--> 00:18:12


00:18:16--> 00:18:17

Okay, that's very good.

00:18:19--> 00:18:20

But it's more

00:18:24--> 00:18:27

so yes, it's close. It's close. He said, say

00:18:30--> 00:18:32

appreciating all of his attributes.

00:18:34--> 00:18:34


00:18:36--> 00:18:37

Anyone else?

00:18:40--> 00:18:54

encapsulates everything okay? But Holic would be what? And if you said Alhamdulillah, harlot, all praise and thanks to the Creator, what would be like the downside of using that name? Instead of using a lot?

00:18:56--> 00:18:57

So if you just use

00:18:59--> 00:19:03

the name colleague, you just refer to the creator Yes. Right. When you

00:19:04--> 00:19:05

when you use a lot

00:19:09--> 00:19:12

of these other attributes, Okay, very good. I forgive.

00:19:14--> 00:19:15

You got a second chance.

00:19:16--> 00:19:24

Mashallah, you see if you said the harlot, you said Holic then you only praising or thanking Allah for being a creator, isn't it?

00:19:25--> 00:19:31

What about being knowledgeable? What about being powerful? What about being merciful? What about whatever

00:19:33--> 00:19:45

but if you use if you wanted one word, which refers to everything Allah is and everything he does, you're left with only one word in your vocabulary, and that is the word Allah.

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

So that's why when you say Hamdulillah, you are praising and thanking Allah for everything he is and everything he does. And that is why the phrase is so powerful. It's so powerful, and even I was thinking about

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

Reflecting how this is like the first statement that Allah, you know, uses in the Quran introduces the whole Koran and Allah Himself introducing himself to mankind with the first phrase Alhamdulillah if this is the first verse of sort of Fatiha, and it's very positive, it's a very positive statement, isn't it? He's speaking about God being amazing, awesome, in every way you can possibly imagine. And also,

00:20:30--> 00:21:16

you know, expressing our love of Allah and our appreciation of Allah. And that's very different to the way you know a lot of non Muslims. A lot of atheists, you know, talk about Allah is actually the opposite the way they talk about Allah, but Allah The biller is a vengeful, angry, hateful, when I hear the will of God, true or not, this is the way they talk about God. This is a mentality and attitude about God. Allah Potter is telling us No, no Allah, first of all, what you need to know human beings is that you need to thank Allah. You need to know how amazing he is. You need to love Allah. And who is Allah is the one that you all worship. The one that you turn to in desperation is

00:21:16--> 00:21:28

very positive statement. Okay, it's very positive statement. And our first steps to Allah are steps of shocker. gratitude towards the last part of that. So if you want to say something?

00:21:39--> 00:21:39


00:21:44--> 00:21:45

Very good, very good.

00:21:48--> 00:22:23

Now, so we find this statement, as brother said, Come up in many different places. And one of them is the Hadith about Adam and Islam when he was first created, he, when the roof was blown in gym, the first thing he did, he sneezed. And he said, Alhamdulillah Okay, so that's quite amazing. I mean, that's the first thing manifested from the dinner. And in fact, you find it in many places, okay. You find it many places. You find it, for example, a new listener when he was saved from the flood. Allah said what poor wakulla Al Hamdulillah hilarie in a Jana uniform in violent mean. Yeah.

00:22:24--> 00:22:25

In sort of,

00:22:26--> 00:22:49

a lot me known a latos law and say, All praise and thanks is due to allow the one who saved us from the wrongdoing nation. Yeah, from the wrongdoing nation. You find it in certain places you also find it which is very amazing. The eyeshadow, the lowdown and I live in southern imagine.

00:22:50--> 00:23:11

So this hadith is authentic. She said, either armour your shin, if he saw something that he loved, he would say Alhamdulillah In fact, it's a long way Alhamdulillah Allah de Alhamdulilah de binetti 13 masala helped us Al Hamdulillah. He saw something he liked and he loved. And then she said, Well, either

00:23:12--> 00:23:21

you crop? Or Yakubu, if he saw something he didn't like, meaning something bad happened in front of him or to him? What would he say? Anyone? No,

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

no, no, our the villa

00:23:25--> 00:23:31

Alhamdulillah. Allah coolly ha, he would say Alhamdulillah

00:23:32--> 00:23:39

in every situation, I luckily have for every situation and moment in my life. So when he saw something good, he said,

00:23:40--> 00:23:42

when he saw something bad, he said, How did

00:23:44--> 00:24:18

the strange No. But now when we appreciate the depth of Alhamdulillah, meaning to things, thanking and praising, we can now understand when something good happens, you want to thank a lot, say, say Alhamdulillah when something bad happens, you don't want to say thank you for the misfortune. But you still want to praise Allah for putting you in a difficult situation through which you could earn reward and be forgiven your sense, isn't it? So you want to praise a lot because even the bad things that happens to us in our lives,

00:24:19--> 00:24:48

my brothers, even the bad things that happen to us in our lives. They serve a purpose, okay, they serve a purpose. And the purpose that they serve is in order for us to gain rewards, also to have since forgiven and earn a higher rank in paradise. So even almost Ponce's is in the Koran in sort of a search that will end with the unknown mean alaba bill Adana, Dune and other will act very laleham anyone know how this verse ends?

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

accent like Allahu Allah says, And surely you will make them taste the minor punishment before the major punishment. So

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

that perhaps they will turn back

00:25:03--> 00:25:43

so that perhaps they will turn back to me and avoid the real punishment in asset protection, preserve us all. So if you find yourself in a situation where you know what something bad is happening, maybe you had an accident, may Allah preserve us all, but something bad happens you can still sell hamdulillah because the bad situation you don't thank Allah for that. But you can praise Allah for that, isn't it? And that's why the processor I'm used to do that. And hamdulillah in good times and in Baton Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah. Now, the alternatives. What is the Hatim say when he stands the member? The first thing he says is in null

00:25:44--> 00:26:07

in Alhamdulillah. nl have the reader that's different to Alhamdulilah you got the word enough placed in front in that means truly, surely. So the translation is surely and surely all praise and thanks is due to Allah. But it is not their sort of Fatiha it's not there. Why not? What do you think?

00:26:09--> 00:26:14

When the hottie was saying it, or when the person used to say it in the hookah, he will say surely

00:26:15--> 00:26:22

praise and thanks is due to a lot but with a loss of how the said it in swell Fatiha.

00:26:23--> 00:26:32

Allah didn't say enough. Surely, Allah just said hamdulillah praise and thanks to Allah. Are you following the question? Yeah. It's a huge wanted you.

00:26:36--> 00:26:37


00:26:42--> 00:27:01

Okay, good. So the one is, who's saying it, the first or the one to say the words is map creation. But the one hamdulillah is not creation is the creator a lot? Good. But anything more than this is yourself.

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


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


00:27:07--> 00:27:11

Because his word is always the truth. Okay. Very good.

00:27:13--> 00:27:16

Is he's making a reminder to the

00:27:19--> 00:27:22

audience, this is a reminder. Okay.

00:27:24--> 00:27:27

Okay, maybe this may be okay. This may be

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

brothers at the back there.

00:27:37--> 00:27:38


00:27:42--> 00:27:48

Okay, very good to see you managing to squeeze down your answers a bit more than last week. Very good show. The brothers already said it though.

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

Anything else?

00:27:54--> 00:27:55

No, possibly.

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

Okay, when you say well, in the

00:28:09--> 00:28:12

know, what do you say enough? It adds certainty.

00:28:13--> 00:28:15

It adds is surely added certainly surely.

00:28:17--> 00:28:21

Yes. This is what the brother said. Now this one runs, okay.

00:28:22--> 00:28:23

You won't get it, you have to trust me.

00:28:26--> 00:28:41

But this is good to reflect because the light reflections are beneficial. And I want you all to be able to get into the habit of reflecting on the Quran as well. Okay. There are two ways. There are two types of sentences in Arabic one is

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

herbaria and one is in Sharia. herbaria means informational.

00:28:48--> 00:29:03

In Sharia means emotional. Okay. When you say in Alhamdulillah, it is herbaria it is only informational. What that means is you're saying praise and thanks to do to Allah. As a matter of fact,

00:29:04--> 00:29:30

that's like a piece of information there. Okay. When you say Alhamdulillah, it can be both herbaria and insha. Allah meaning it can also be an emotional statement. And the way you understand that is, you know, like, you've heard, for example, that somebody had a car crash, and you're like, on the phone and they say, yeah, you didn't hear that he had a he had a car crash really bad cop and he like really what happened? Because he's okay though. He didn't get harmed at all. What do you say?

00:29:35--> 00:29:36

What would you say if you did

00:29:38--> 00:29:59

it say Alhamdulillah Yeah, the emotion. Yeah. Emotional. Alhamdulillah. So it's not just a piece of information. It's an emotive type of statement. Okay. And that's amazing because Allah subhanaw taala is not just telling us, all praises do to me as a matter of fact,

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

He wants us to feel that Allah truly does deserve all praise and facts. And in that there is a very basic lesson that an hamdulillah in Surah Fatiha is teaching us Oh people say Alhamdulillah feel grateful to Allah. Yeah, feel that in your heart. Feel that in your heart when you say and have the love, feel it. Have the emotion. And the two main emotions that come through in a hamdulillah after sugar is the love because we said it has the meaning of love, right? And also all

00:30:36--> 00:30:41

know this word or do you know what this word means? I use it a lot. But I don't know whether people

00:30:42--> 00:30:44

what's another word for all that?

00:30:46--> 00:30:47

Again, reference very like

00:30:49--> 00:30:52

amazement is closer. Yeah. Amazing.

00:30:54--> 00:31:18

mesmerized, yeah. bewilderment. All these are similar words. Okay, but those are the type of feelings that are encapsulated in hamdulillah. Okay, so one alternative is say in in and hamdulillah. But it's not it's not as good as Abdullah. Why? Because Abdullah is has the emotional aspect to it. Okay. There's another alternative resort. And that is lilla. Hill hunt. Have you heard this?

00:31:19--> 00:31:33

One, Eli, Lilly Langham is to say for a law, his present tax as opposed to saying praise and thanks is for a lot.

00:31:34--> 00:31:41

Now, a last caller never said instead of it happened lilla Hill hamdu. Allah said Alhamdulillah.

00:31:43--> 00:31:58

Any take any takers on this one? What do you think like? How comes? That? Okay, I'll give you I'll give you a little hint as well. When you say little hands. Okay. The idea is

00:31:59--> 00:32:05

you are negating and you are refuting someone who kind of disagrees with you.

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


00:32:09--> 00:32:23

someone or some people, they are saying something against what you are saying. And oh, in order to clarify you say the statement in a way that's refuting what they are saying? And then affirming what you are saying.

00:32:24--> 00:32:43

Yeah, so is it little like ham is like people are there they saying ham Danny for a lot of the people as well. What are the other maybe idols for example? And then you want to clarify to those people. The way you clarify is you'd say, No, no, no. lilla Hill Hammond.

00:32:45--> 00:32:49

There, they learn how and when I've just explained that you're actually giving you the answer. So

00:32:50--> 00:32:55

the answer is that lyndale Hamed is for refuting and for negating.

00:32:56--> 00:32:57

And sort of it

00:32:58--> 00:33:52

is only Allah speaking, the sutra is only Allah speaking, Allah doesn't tell us anybody else talking and saying other things. Now, where you find lilla in him, for example, is a gesture, a gesture, the whole surah is about a debate between machinery Kuhn, the spoon of maca, would they do their worship idols? And they would you know, give hand to Allah as well as to idols. So it makes sense there to use the which one Alhamdulillah Allah Allah and Lila and have that's why you find the verse 30 lN hemtt have the similarity. Are the herbal alameen Yeah, so there are a lot of us Lila inherent why because it's this context. Okay, necessitates that that's the better one to choose. As for Surah

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

Fatiha, it is Allah Subhana talking and there is no one day who you are refuting or negating. So that's why it is better say Alhamdulillah instead of Yes.

00:34:04--> 00:34:32

jatiya Sorrell jatiya, verse number 36. Okay, the last point for Alhamdulillah is just the lamb in Allah, the word Allah has alarm lilla and hamdu Lillah this lamb they say is for if the sauce which means especially or specifically. So enhance praise and thanks is especially or ultimately for Allah subhanaw taala

00:34:33--> 00:34:50

and that's quite interesting because do you find any way in the Quran where Allah gives hand to anyone else? Or tells you that somebody else in your life deserves hand as well? Any verse in the Quran where hand is being given to anyone other than Allah?

00:34:54--> 00:34:55

So is that

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

what about sugar is sugar are we talking about

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

put onto give sugar to anyone other than Allah

00:35:06--> 00:35:09

parents very good anyone know those who are waiting to catch up to you parents?

00:35:13--> 00:35:17

Sort of backer on bit you told to give to parents? Yes.

00:35:20--> 00:35:22

No, this is not this not sugar though.

00:35:25--> 00:36:03

This one is not so so. So so has the verse about parents with the verses regarding sugar to your parents in sort of man. Yes What Oh look, man, Allah says Baba hemella tomo and Allah Allah, Allah, Allah who vrma anishka Lee, when you are the daikon, Allah says about the mother Look at her, she carried you from one stage of weakness to another and then she breastfed you for two years. Give sugar to me. And to both of your parents. Yeah, give sugar to me and both of you know Unhand

00:36:04--> 00:36:06

Why is that? Because

00:36:08--> 00:36:13

even parents, though they do so much for the children at the end of the day.

00:36:15--> 00:36:18

They do not deserve ultimate praise.

00:36:19--> 00:36:26

They don't because parents sometimes can be good parents that bad people through not

00:36:27--> 00:36:33

any example of a parent in the Quran. Who is a bad parent?

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

Is that really bad parent?

00:36:38--> 00:36:39

The bad father.

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


00:36:42--> 00:37:16

His father as he's used to run a big company making idols man, the guy is director of a big ship company. Yeah, so let's father if Allah gelada said give him to your parents, they would be giving him to his dad. That's not possible you can give him sugar because the things he does for you but you can't give him because he's a bad person that makes sense. So, what is amazing upon you never find him given to anyone except Allah Subhana Allah though sugar is given to other than Allah and that is our parents Okay.

00:37:17--> 00:37:24

Now, we will have a peer activity if you look on the board here on the on the slide rather

00:37:25--> 00:37:27

it is in the course notes.

00:37:29--> 00:37:29


00:37:31--> 00:37:32

co pays

00:37:34--> 00:37:35

Can I see it?

00:37:38--> 00:38:01

Yes, okay. So it says this is going to be a pure activity. If Alhamdulillah is calling us to be grateful to Allah then there's so many things to be grateful for right. But if you had to think of five things, which you feel are the top five things in your life to say thank you to Allah for what would they be?

00:38:03--> 00:38:34

Make sense you have to you have to choose five okay. You have to choose and the interesting thing is after you tell me what your fiver remember tabula rasa, mala also this five is the seat, we will compare. Okay, what I said and what came to your book came to your mind inshallah. So, you've got two minutes, okay. If you think about the five top things, not just five things, the five top things which you should be saying thank you to Allah in every, every time we sell hamdulillah

00:38:35--> 00:38:36

it helps us now.

00:38:45--> 00:38:46


00:38:51--> 00:38:52

first time

00:38:55--> 00:39:03

ever, everyone should be talking to somebody else, please turn to the person next to you. They are alive and shut off. They will talk to you if you talk to them.

00:39:22--> 00:39:23


00:39:24--> 00:39:25

one minute remaining.

00:39:44--> 00:39:48

30 seconds left. And then I'll just choose some peers at random

00:39:50--> 00:39:52

people behind the pillar can't see

00:40:07--> 00:40:20

Okay 10 987654321 Okay,

00:40:21--> 00:40:23

we have some on the right hand side

00:40:25--> 00:40:26

let's have you two guys

00:40:27--> 00:40:28

back here

00:40:34--> 00:40:37

okay for life for your for your senses, okay?

00:40:40--> 00:40:43

For parents okay? Mashallah, are you as you are your parents around?

00:40:48--> 00:40:49


00:40:52--> 00:40:53

for food?

00:40:54--> 00:40:56

Okay. That's for your

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


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

He said the senses

00:41:05--> 00:41:07

so having parents and listen to us.

00:41:09--> 00:41:11

Oh, okay. Very good.

00:41:20--> 00:41:20


00:41:23--> 00:41:23


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


00:41:27--> 00:41:28


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


00:41:39--> 00:41:45

Children's best parents. Okay, Michelle, not anyone have something slightly different

00:41:51--> 00:41:51


00:41:54--> 00:41:54


00:41:56--> 00:41:58

Health, Education

00:41:59--> 00:41:59


00:42:02--> 00:42:02

okay friends

00:42:08--> 00:42:10

okay don't really want to get too busy.

00:42:13--> 00:42:16

Anyone ever something different now? You've heard what the brothers said yes.

00:42:18--> 00:42:23

The ability to worship Allah. Okay? That's good, yes.

00:42:24--> 00:42:25

Or up.

00:42:40--> 00:42:49

Okay? Having the ability to the love and the want to implement the guidance. Okay, very good brothers have a look at this.

00:42:51--> 00:43:41

Here are the five things that Allah mentioned in his in his tough seat. Okay. Number one, he said the tools and resources that facilitate our worship of him. That's number one. Number two, our well formed bodies which have limbs by which we can carry out our obligatory religious duties. Number three, for the worldly provisions, riches, he spread throughout the earth. Number four, for providing us with a pleasant environment in which to live in which we ourselves did not need to create. Number five, for quoting us to adhere to ways that will secure for us and everlasting life of bliss. And so for our monsters hunt for all that and more, from the first to the last.

00:43:42--> 00:43:46

What is amazing about the five things they probably mentioned,

00:43:48--> 00:43:48

is that

00:43:49--> 00:43:55

out of the five, four of them are all to do with religion.

00:43:56--> 00:43:58

For them all to do with religion.

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

Yeah, the first one to the resources to filter I wish you a lot about religion, our four bodies and limbs in order to carry out the following obligatory duties. That's about religion. Number three about what are the provisions and riches spread throughout the world? That one you Okay, maybe not religion. Number four, providing us a pleasant environment. If you live in our lives, we do not need to create exactly the amount of the reason for calling us today two ways where we're secure for us and everlasting life of this. There's another one explicitly our religion. What's that? What's that telling us? That's telling us my brothers or sisters, that the things that we do think a lot more

00:44:36--> 00:44:45

for are not about worldly things, rather than things to do with the asherah the life to come? Why? Because the life to come is a real life.

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

Even if you never had nothing in this life, but you get everything in the hereafter. You buy everything, isn't it? And what will get you to the hereafter and Jenna is what? Your religion

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

guidance. Yeah. So it makes sense that the first thing you thank Allah for is what religion guidance. Okay? And this is one of the things we should always be thanking Allah subhanaw taala for. And I probably said I was hoping would tell us to say, yeah, Allah will approve the third bit olubunmi Allah. Dini, yeah. Oh, turn of hearts.

00:45:24--> 00:46:15

turn our hearts and make them firm. To what? upon your religion? That is the door the person would say, very frequently. And that's the process of them saying, This is what the prophet of Allah is telling Allah, please keep me firm on your religion. What about us? What about us? So that means that you need the first, the main thing we need to make sure for is, is is our religion. Okay, the second part of the hamdulillah is this verse, or Bill alameen. There's two words that are on an island in the word of my brothers, we will do this as an exercise now. It has five root meanings. The word Rob, which translates as Lord sometimes, as master sometimes has five root meanings. Okay,

00:46:15--> 00:46:18

five root meanings. And when I say each

00:46:19--> 00:46:24

root word, and I explain it, I want you then to tell me what does that mean,

00:46:25--> 00:46:25

to you?

00:46:26--> 00:46:39

And to creation in general? What does that mean? If a law is this? What does that say about me? Does that make sense? Okay, so, list the five First, the five root

00:46:40--> 00:46:44

meanings are number one, Malik, owner.

00:46:46--> 00:46:49

Number two, say it, Master

00:46:51--> 00:46:53

number three more upbeat.

00:46:55--> 00:46:55


00:46:57--> 00:47:01

number four, by you sustainer.

00:47:02--> 00:47:10

And number five, monitoring the one who gives gifts. Okay, so the first is what

00:47:11--> 00:47:21

Malik Malik means, owner, Allah. When we say, Rob, we are referring to Allah, one of the things is that a lot owns everything.

00:47:22--> 00:47:27

In the absolute sense, he owns every atom.

00:47:29--> 00:47:39

In every single thing that we see around us, including ourselves, Allah owns it or his family. So what does that say about me? And you?

00:47:43--> 00:47:44


00:47:46--> 00:47:48

That was a good one. Okay.

00:47:53--> 00:47:59

He said certain abilities, save a lot of the answer. If Eliza Malik the owner, what does that mean?

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

It means that we don't own anything true or not. If Allah is the real owner, then the things I have in my life,

00:48:10--> 00:48:14

I may own them on paper. But the reality is that Allah is the true owner of everything.

00:48:16--> 00:48:23

Even myself, even myself, you know, a lot of people don't appreciate this when we talk about

00:48:24--> 00:48:40

you know, when when you talk about tattooing the body for example, tattooing is such a big trend. Not everyone has a tattoo. Yeah, it's such a huge trend. And I do think a lot the ideal thing is that I heard a documentary about these people before tattoo addicts. Okay.

00:48:41--> 00:49:05

The weird thing is that a lot of these people when they get one tattoo, where they want to do next, then get another tattoo. Until they whole body is covered. And it's very painful getting a tattoo. Yeah, very painful. Until they even they face they cover it with a tattoo this thing just looks creepy. This looks weird. They said that is it isn't isn't addiction behind it.

00:49:06--> 00:49:16

The addiction, the psychology is that the ability to change the way you look, permanently, is an addictive feeling.

00:49:17--> 00:49:22

It's an addictive feeling. And they wish to continue doing that until they ruin the whole body.

00:49:23--> 00:49:25

But when you say look these things you shouldn't do them. They're

00:49:26--> 00:49:30

part of the reason why the harm is because you don't own your body

00:49:32--> 00:49:38

is the property of Allah subhanaw taala you cannot treat your body in any way you wish. It doesn't belong to you.

00:49:39--> 00:49:54

It belongs to Allah. Allah. One of the first meanings is Malik. Okay, anything else? What does that mean? If Allah is the owner, it means you don't own anything. It means you yourself don't own anything means you yourself are owned by anything else, anything different.

00:49:57--> 00:49:57

You don't

00:49:59--> 00:50:00


00:50:00--> 00:50:01

have done anything to own something.

00:50:05--> 00:50:09

Ah, okay. So even your success in your life

00:50:10--> 00:50:13

is not something that you produced.

00:50:14--> 00:50:23

Rather it's the property of a loss. Okay, very good. That's very good. Because then obviously that would make you feel humble, right? That makes you humble. I

00:50:25--> 00:50:33

got to give these answers Marshall really good. Hello. Yes Okay, we've got five to go by the way. So, Malik

00:50:34--> 00:50:50

next one was say you say it means master. Okay. You know like in the store use the valet salon there. Aziz was known as the sacred. Yeah, when they both ran to the door, Allah said was stabbed up on Baba.

00:50:52--> 00:51:43

Baba, Baba Camus. Yeah, I mean, during what alpha, saying yida, leatherback turtles. So when they both ran to the door use values from running in order to avoid falling into zinna. One area the villa. Allah said they came to the door and what do you know, who did they find at the door? Her saved her master. Okay, even though he was the master of use of Alison, because she was the one who's guilty. He was more like her master in that moment. So is the word say it means master. Allah subhanaw taala is the master. By the way, authority, rational law said the main one of the main meanings from these meanings is saved. Saved is one of the primary meanings of Rob. Master. So what

00:51:43--> 00:51:46

does that mean that brothers? If Allah is the master?

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

What does that mean?

00:51:51--> 00:51:59

It means that we are the slaves a lot. It means that we are the slaves. If Allah is the master,

00:52:00--> 00:52:04

then everything else including us, we are all slaves of our last panel of Allah.

00:52:05--> 00:52:06

And here

00:52:07--> 00:52:13

there is the link between this verse and the verse that comes later which verse comes later?

00:52:14--> 00:52:57

Which was the complaint and sort of had to have is a link to this verse. Here Cannot you alone do we worship and Naboo can mean we enslave ourselves to okay Nevada and being an ABD. Okay? We'll come to that meaning inshallah, but they are we are talking about being Allah slaves. But that's after hearing what that Allah is. The Master? Yeah. Do you see how it's beautifully paves the way in order for us to come to the realization that hang on a minute is the master than we are? slaves? Yeah, very good. So number two, say it. Master number three is

00:52:58--> 00:52:58


00:53:00--> 00:53:00

Number three was

00:53:02--> 00:53:13

Barbie. Barbie. Barbie means the one who takes care of somebody. The one who takes care of something. What's the law that you're supposed to say for your parents?

00:53:14--> 00:53:19

I don't care. Hey, Mama. Come up. Rebecca Yanni. Seville?

00:53:20--> 00:53:51

Yeah, Fabiani, the same word of tarbiyah. Maura be, you're saying to Allah subhanho wa Taala that forgive them? One of the reasons why I ask Allah to forgive them. And to show mercy to them is because they brought you up. They took care of you. Yeah, they raised you up. So the same word is being used the Allah is the more or be the one who takes care of us. They're the one who makes us grow. Yeah, this is literally what it means in Sha to make something grow.

00:53:52--> 00:54:36

And that's amazing. Because if you look at the first three together, right, owner master and the one who makes something grow, sometimes what you find is people that own things that don't necessarily look after them through not someone can have a fantastic car. When you sit in the brother's car, I think Mashallah, what was going on here? It's never been hoovered, ever. You're not taking care of your car, even though it's an amazing car and you own it. Okay, so I'm Alec doesn't necessarily mean he's a Morumbi. Yeah. And also a say it the master, okay. The one who is the master of a slave doesn't necessarily mean he looks after the slave does it?

00:54:37--> 00:54:57

Most of the time, if you think about slavery, the master doesn't take care of this fate. The master abuses this lip abuses Lee neglects the slave a lot farther saying I'm the master. And I'm the more of be on the one that makes things grow and the one who takes care of them. Okay, so what does that mean to me and you then

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

what do you think?

00:55:03--> 00:55:12

Okay, very good that we should praise. In fact, the last part that because he's the one who takes care of us, okay, one takes care of us and the brother, they're alike, but just

00:55:14--> 00:55:40

found the link between the first half and the second half of sort of this the first verse. Because if Allah is the more of be the one who takes care of us, we should be thanking Allah, isn't it? And that has already come in the first part Alhamdulillah we thank you and praise you Allah. And one of the reasons we do that is because you're our Morumbi, you're the one who makes us grow, okay, you got to get

00:55:44--> 00:55:45

this one done.

00:55:47--> 00:55:48

They So,

00:55:49--> 00:55:55

this is which name now we had Malik we had said he had more of it was left to me.

00:55:56--> 00:56:06

What am I What do we say pay him first. Pay him first. Famously, sustainer. sustainer is the one who keeps something going keep something alive.

00:56:07--> 00:56:20

Okay. And you have to really appreciate this. Pamela, if Allah is Begum, and you're as we have as ayatul kursi, then it means that Allah is keeping us alive and well.

00:56:22--> 00:56:28

In every single moment of our life, imagine one moment where Allah stopped being a young

00:56:30--> 00:56:31

what would happen to us

00:56:33--> 00:56:37

would be destroyed. We'd literally disappear

00:56:39--> 00:57:19

into nothingness. Allah is a young, keeping us alive, and well. Okay, keeping us alive and well. And what is amazing about that is a loss of power of the law doesn't need to do that. A law gets nothing from us being alive and well. And, again, you have to appreciate all these things together. The fact is, someone can own something, right? And it needs to be taken care of all the time. Like someone who has a pet. Okay, my brother recently bought a turtle. Okay, a turtle. And then I said to him, they said, Yeah, I like the turtle. And then he's going on holiday.

00:57:20--> 00:57:21

What's he gonna? What's he thinking?

00:57:22--> 00:57:25

Who's gonna look after? The turtle? Yeah.

00:57:30--> 00:57:40

Actually, it was my sister. So he said, he brought the turtle, he said, Look a vine away. You have to feed it every single day. If you don't feed it, it will die.

00:57:42--> 00:58:06

So someone who owns something and wants to take care of it may not be able to take care of it, isn't it? And if they don't have laws, that thing is going to perish? Allah is always keeping us alive. And keeping us well. Okay, sustaining us. So that is the fourth thing. And again,

00:58:07--> 00:58:11

any thoughts on this? Like all that mean to you now? Knowing that life is?

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


00:58:34--> 00:58:39

Okay. Very good supplies independent of all of these? Yeah. Okay. Very good. Anything else? Sorry.

00:58:42--> 00:58:44

Okay, again, but the brother said

00:58:47--> 00:58:47

for us.

00:58:49--> 00:58:50


00:58:51--> 00:59:13

So knowing that Allah is paying bills in appreciation of his power, that he's keeping everything as it is, in as Pamela was reflecting even over the overheating of the Sun around his galactic star. And what I found out is that the sun orbits its own star at the center of the Milky Way.

00:59:15--> 00:59:37

And the speed of the orbit is something in the region of 122,000 miles per hour. Something in that region. Check it out, I think to myself a lot for that sun, even though we don't see it moving, but is actually moving that fast since it was created.

00:59:39--> 00:59:42

at that speed, it's even unimaginable that speed who is doing

00:59:43--> 00:59:49

Allah and that is this one of the smallest stars in the galaxy.

00:59:50--> 00:59:53

Smallest star. Our Sun is one of the smallest stars in the galaxy.

00:59:54--> 00:59:55

Thank you. Yeah.

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

It's a 45,000 miles an hour. Hello.

01:00:00--> 01:00:50

twice a day. Okay, last one is one, the one who gives gifts. The one who gives gives a loss of power with Allah. That's another root meaning of the word Arab. Allah doesn't just own. It doesn't just take care. It doesn't just sustain, it gives more than that gives you gifts. It gives you gifts. And this panel already we are appreciating Allah subhanaw taala in so many different ways based on just one word, Rob. Okay. And one of the beautiful things about the word ROM, is that it's a word that necessitates a relationship with something else. Isn't. If Allah said he is an island, yeah, he is the old Noah. Or knows alameen? He knows. I mean,

01:00:51--> 01:01:03

that doesn't necessarily necessitate a relationship with anyone else does it? If If you said someone's intelligent, doesn't necessarily necessitate that it has a relationship with another person, it's just him by himself.

01:01:04--> 01:01:06

But if someone is loving

01:01:07--> 01:01:58

you thinking there's someone else out there? Who is being the recipient of the love, isn't it? When you say allies that rob you already thinking Hang on a minute, that means there are things out there that he owns things out there, he's taking care of things that he is gifting. Yeah, so allies 10, describing himself to us with words that will reach out to us and make the relationship with him. subhana wa, Tada. It's amazing. The last word is Ireland mean? I mean, my brothers and sisters, is a plural, the singular version is Ireland. And there's two views about the word hard and what does it mean? The first view is that Arlen means race, race or species of different generations, different

01:01:58--> 01:02:01

species like human beings, while the species are there,

01:02:02--> 01:02:04

Jim Chi and other species,

01:02:05--> 01:02:15

angels, right, and those are different species, as well as the different generations within those species. So human beings on earth now

01:02:16--> 01:02:21

and before the generation and the generation before and all the generations to come.

01:02:23--> 01:02:52

Okay, that's what it means for the first few. The second view is that it means everything besides Allah subhanaw taala everything besides Allah, Allah, so Allah is saying he is the rub of either all species of all generations and all the generations or he is the rub of everything that exists beside him. Okay, everything that exists beside him. So

01:02:54--> 01:03:11

Rob been I mean, the master of jinn, of man of angels, the one who takes care of them, the one who is the master, the one who gives them gifts, etc, etc, etc. That is where you reflect of it.

01:03:12--> 01:03:41

The interesting thing also about the word alum is that it has another root, which is Allah, and Allah means sign. And some of the scholars, they said that the meaning of Ireland referred to everything besides creation, besides a law, and the root word of sign is that the fact that they are there is things in existence is a sign pointing towards the presence of a creator.

01:03:43--> 01:04:17

You get that if the word amin comes to the root of Allah, which means sign, then the fact that there is alameen is a sign that there is a problem that there is a creator. Okay, this is sensible, this is just logical. Things don't come out of nothing out of lucky chance, which is what some people would have us believe. So this is a robot army. Okay, and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen. Now, there's two spiritual lessons which I want to, for you to make a note of inshallah, we'll come to the end of this verse.

01:04:18--> 01:04:22

The first is the role of sugar in our lives.

01:04:23--> 01:04:37

You have to understand that a lot. The first thing Allah spoke about is sugar, which really does show us how much love values a person who appreciates law isn't. If that's the first thing Allah spoke about.

01:04:38--> 01:04:59

Sugar and Santa, it means Allah loves people that are grateful to him, and people that praise Him. And that means we should try our very best to be as grateful to Allah as possible. And the way you be grateful to analyze you, we reflect over the good things you have in your life. And every time you think of them, you feel

01:05:00--> 01:05:28

Hello, thank you for that. Okay, and it's an exercise you have to continues to do. The second is this rumble alameen actually has a reputation of racism inside of it. You know how, because we are being told Allah is the master of all races of all species, black people, white people, Asian people, all those races, they are the same, in that they are all slaves of the master.

01:05:29--> 01:06:14

There is the master, and then they are the slaves. Doesn't matter what species or race you are. At the end of the day, you're all the same before a lot. You're all allows slaves. And if you really understood that, you wouldn't really say someone is certain color therefore they are better or worse than me rather than another race. And Allah says Rob, will Allah mean he is the master of all races? And means all races at the end of the day slaves to Allah. Yeah, we are all slaves we're most proud of. So anyhow, these are two spiritual essence and we will really take this question now. And also the last animonda interview and he was actually it's very fun Park last

01:06:15--> 01:06:19

five minutes for questions anyone needs to leave they can even show why you know,
