The scholars said
can be divided into two types of characters, two types of behaviors. And a man who Shatrughan
this fun sub one is for shook
can be expressed in Saba
and the other half can be expressed in shook
in giving thanks to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And when we reflect upon this quotation
and what does it mean?
To give thanks to Allah? What does it mean to have sugar?
When we go back to the Quran to the Sunnah of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and reflect on the meaning of sugar.
We find wonders, we find
amazing and important
of words that we sometimes take for granted.
We use that word of shukran shukran shukran de la nascara law and hamdulillah
but the book of Allah subhana wa tada puts a different emphasis puts a different light
on these words
and what they mean.
Does the point
that Allah made our creation one goal one purpose of our hope
is to give thanks to him.
And this is in Quran surah
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well la Hua Harajuku mumble pony, Omaha, Chico. Let's
our episode one f e de
la la Comtesse Kuru
Allah created you Allah
brought you out from the wombs of your mothers, and you know nothing.
And I like gave you a seminar, the hearing the see the vision and absorb while Effie Danny intellect
why Allah says accomplish karoun so you might
understand that sugar you might give him thanks.
Allah says he created day and night. The succession of time.
Why? Well who are Lizzy Jana Laila
Hill fatter lemon arada yes that kara arada Shakira.
suratul for Han.
Allah says he is the one that created the succession of day and night.
For those who want to remember him or for those who want to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala.
What does that mean? What does the word mean?
Every word every
route, we take it to its linguistic meaning and try to understand it. And from that linguistic meaning, we derive
the shadow meaning
and what it means in Sharia.
Because that's the depth of the language of Quran.
An example of that is the word suffer.
Suffering its root means to reveal.
As far as the shape is to reveal something. And when you travel with someone, all the hidden characteristic is are revealed.
This is a digression.
But if somebody is truly generous and forgiving, when they're put under the pressure of traveling, all that generosity shows up. And if somebody truly mean, that also shows up, that's why Safar traveling in Arabic called Safar revealing.
So we go into the root of the word sugar,
the roots of it called Shankara.
And it comes from a simple meaning
from the Bedouin environment of the Arabs.
They will say Shekhar Anibal
the camel checkup, meaning the
sign of the feed is showing on that camel.
The signs of what should be feeding the camel is showing on its body.
Should karate dead back
seminar or seminar meaning it's showing when you feed the animal
and the animal started getting healthier,
or fatter. They say shut karate data.
You show the effect you show the signs of what you're given that data
what you're given that animal
What does that have anything to do with giving thanks?
The earlier man said
just like the root of that word.
It is Voodoo frt
never met Tila
it is to show
the sign of a laws gifts on human person on a human being
and that those signs have to show and the heart on the tongue and also in the faculties of the human being in a job.
And there is an important distinction between two words here
that are not completely interchangeable
at hand and a shocker
we say nothing madula Hornish Cora
is different from sugar
hemd to Allah subhanho wa Taala
occurs for two things
for his Nam for his bounties, but also hand for his names and attributes.
Allah who you met
we say Hamed, Allah His word the for his for the praise Allah His word the forehand for who he is Subhana who Allah
Allah Subhana Allah is worth the effects of sugar
for his Nan
for the gifts that Allah subhana wa Taala listens to us
and there is no sugar without hand. hemp is much more encompassing than sugar
and that sugar, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah made it
a comparable or complimentary to Amen.
And it's a saving
characteristic of Hellfire, Allah subhanaw taala says, Man, if I will know who they are they become in shocker to momentum. What would Allah do with your tournament, if you give thanks if you have sugar, and have a man
and Allah made it very clear that you as a human being, you have two choices in life. In our head Dana, who's sebelah imageshack urine, we're in Makkah fora that we have two choices either to become a shachar either to become a person who is thankful and grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala or Carrefour or ingrate,
to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah, Allah
and then a bather the worship of Allah has to be
part of his sugar. Allah says watch guru de la he inconjunct, Yahoo taboo
and have that sugar to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Indeed, if you have worship to Allah Subhana
and it bleeds in Lorraine,
it bleeds a shaytaan. Well, he has a biller knew this fact, knew that sugar to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is a cornerstone of Eman. It is parallel
to the fact of being a momento Muslim. It is a cornerstone of the road to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's why when Iblees spoke to Allah in the very beginning, when it bleeds was challenging the human race. What did he say?
What did he bring up? He said sumela attina mean benei id him woman healthy him. One a man in him one shot at him. What did you do at home? shaqiri?
Well, I take you to acara home, shakin him.
He said, I will be waiting for them from their front from their back on the right and on the left, and you will find that they will not be shaqiri they will not be grateful to you.
He knew it please.
And Allah Subhana knew that from the beginning what kalila meant daddy a shocker. Only few of the slaves of a law of the servants of Allah subhana wa Taala actually have true gratefulness to Allah have true shocker to Allah subhanho wa Taala
in the LA Hana Zoo fumbling Island ness, while I can act on se Lascaux.
This is a fact. Allah says Indeed Allah
has a lot of bounty, a lot of fun, a lot of favors upon people, but most people, majority of people
do not practice.
When we hear those that
we better get our attention up.
Because Allah Subhana Allah says kalila daddy Shaku Apsara, Nessie layers Quran, the majority, the majority of people are not grateful.
And if you're not grateful, if one is not grateful, he has to be there. And Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala to make us all of us shaqiri
if one is not grateful, what is the alternative? Allah says in Nevada who sabirah imageshack urine? Why not a fool?
There is no other way. There is no middle solution. We either a shotgun or kung fu villa. And as Allah says what polynomially the idea Shaku if only the minority are shackled, that means the majority are careful.
So it behooves us to understand what should could really mean and how do we become of a bad law IE a shackle?
There are rules there are some cornerstones of sugar
Everything is about understanding.
It's all about the knowledge, not about just words.
The man said there are collide for sure.
What are these collide?
The first part is that for sugar, the first rule of sugar is sugar oolaboo D
is to acknowledge our budimir that's the first macom of sugar.
The first thing that we thank Allah with is to acknowledge that we are the slaves of Allah subhana wa that
is to give him his rights of tawheed.
We can't thank him subpoena with anything that is more important than to acknowledge that La ilaha illAllah
and understand it and work on it and live with it. And the Hades could see.
And this divine ethar Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and I will insert a new fee number in Alvin.
I have a great affair between me human beings and the jinn.
I have no clue what you're about to see why. I create a law says and someone else is worshipped
and has no clue
why you should care to see why. Why are you Chicago hiring I provide and someone else is being thanked for what I provide.
When Allah provide the Nirvana, when Allah provide the health, when Allah provide the wealth, when Allah provide everything we enjoy, and we attribute that to someone else other than Allah subhanho wa Taala
then we have violated the first part either the first rule of sugar.
The second rule of shocker
is to try to acknowledge trying to understand,
to even enumerate
the bounties and the gift to philosophy Anahata Allah and yet Allah tells us that even if you try, you cannot do it, but you should try while doing it and Mata la he later saw her if you try to enumerate the gifts and the bounties of Allah subhanho wa Taala if your master you cannot enumerate them
but yet he says don't don't if even if you cannot do it, it shouldn't it doesn't mean that you shouldn't try because Allah in so many other places in the Quran tells you to do it. Yeah you could only Allah Allah
or humanity mentioned enough Allah why maybe Nick Matthew Rob beaker for happiness.
He should show the net now for love. You should mention the name of Allah.
Was guru near Mata La, la calm and what is the greatest man of Allah subhanho wa Taala is what he says in Surah Baqarah was guru near Mata La Jolla aleikum wa nzlr la camino Al Kitab. You will Hickman here is to convey
is there a greater Nirvana
than the book the message that Allah subhana wa Taala then this man, then this religion that Allah Subhana Allah bestowed upon us,
then this Namibian omiya by her rezeki Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam that he sent upon us
just look to this nightmare.
Look this gift.
How can we even thank Allah subhana wa tada for just the opportunity of Come on the Day of Judgment, and even have the chance of walking behind Muhammad Sallallahu.
And another rule of sugar
is a senate rally
is to praise him for it.
So first, though, he'd have to acknowledge that he is the only one that provided this name. The second one is to enumerate and mentioned the Nirvana and acknowledge the Nirvana itself. And the third one is to actually think
thank him for it. We always think that just the thank thank Allah for it is the only thing we have to do
and it is a hadith in Sahih Muslim and look at the generosity of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the forgiveness of Allah subhanaw taala in this Headey This is one of the most generous Hadith, Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about a law in the La Jolla bar,
annual Abdi and yaku, let's
say at Medallia, we actually have a shoulder, they are Medallia.
Allah would be just pleased that when we eat the food to say Alhamdulillah and when we drink the drink, to say Alhamdulillah
can we truly repay Allah subhana wa Taala with that?
Absolutely not. But Allah is just pleased if we just remember him, and mention him and we say Alhamdulillah.
And one of the last and one of the important rules of the NEMA and important rules of thanking Allah for the NEMA.
that many of us
Yes, luminesce who be here, we transgress against ourselves with this Nam.
One of the most important rules of thanking Allah
is to not not to use this name and this gift that Allah has given us in his disobedience in this obeying Allah subhana wa.
If Allah gave us the gift, we don't take that gift. And this obey Him with it.
This is, at least the least thing we can do is when Allah gives us this seminar, don't just obey Him with it. When Allah gives us the tongue.
The ability to speak,
we don't speak masliah
when Allah gives us our eyes, we don't look at her arm.
When Allah gives us the ability to go out and get the rest, we don't go get her arm.
When Allah gives us health,
we don't use it and haraam when Allah gives this wealth, we don't spend it in hot all
the time I said
this is one of the most important interpretation of the area similitudes ellu neoma is a 99
then on that day you will be asked about denying, you will be asked about the bounties you will be asked about Allah subhanho wa Taala.
positive effects upon the avid
brings. When we are people who are Shaku when we have this gratefulness to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah.
Allah puts blessing in the gifts that he gives us.
gives the Baraka
puts the river,
we saw when we put
when we acknowledge him as the giver when we acknowledge these cornerstones, the rules of sugar.
We are not like cartoon
far on is the one from the people of Moosa when Allah gave him so much wealth
that group of people cannot even carry the keys to the to the boxes of those well of the wealth, the storage areas of this wealth.
When he was asked
what about this wealth that you have he said in the mountains 80 to one a min nd I was given this wealth because I'm smart.
Because I know how to work in the marketplace because I'm intelligent, I have diplomas and I have licenses and I got it
in NEMA ot to Allah in nd
and what did Allah subhanaw taala do with him?
We know the end of the story, and he was just destroyed himself and his wealth
but when some
buddy's thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala
for the little that they have a lot puts Baraka in it. Allah puts a blessing in it.
You will see the smile and the content in their hearts on their faces.
And there is also a promise from Allah subhana wa tada for those who thank him, Allah says letting Shackleton let as eaten.
When you thank me, I will give you more.
And then how did the footsie it's confirmed
a Hello decree Hello metallicity evolution shoukry enthusiasts
those who thank me, I will give them more.
The sugar of Allah subhanho wa Taala
makes people have more and
more blessing Allahumma dynamin a bedika Corinne Allahumma na Marlena Allahumma and emmalin habanero Mehta. shoukry are hamara amin robina, Rosina and Nash Karanja mythicality and anti Elena, while early Dana was not another solid hunter bar.

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Jemaine
Shakur, my beloved brothers and sisters had grades degrees, has ranks. chaker is not all the same.
We can compete in sugar,
we can have levels
because Jenna has levels.
rank, the first degree of sugar
is to acknowledge the net ml from LA to thank Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for the Nana.
Now, that said, a very interesting thing about this great when you read the books of ignorant km and others, they will say that this degree, when you acknowledge the bounty that it came from Allah, and you thank him for it. They say that's how I became Muslim. And
this is something that the Muslims, the Jews, and the Christians are equal with.
that bounties come from the Creator, and they thank the creator for it
with theological differences,
but they acknowledge
that bounties come
from him. And they thank
Allah for it.
So they said that's the first degree. And that's the minimum, minimum required of a believer is to acknowledge the bounties that come from a law and to thank him for it.
And then they said,
a grade above that is to take that bounty.
To take the favors of a law and deploy it and employ it.
in the service of a law.
To acknowledge that you were given that bounty, you were given that gift for a purpose, you were given that bounty, that gift for a reason.
And that is the words of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and a blog can build highly or surely fitna. That when Allah gives you higher it is a fitna, when you're given prosperity when you're given something good, it is a trial. And the trial is what are you going to do with it?
If Allah give someone intellect, how are you going to deploy it? If Allah subhanaw taala give somebody a gift? How are you going to what are you going to do with it? If Allah subhanaw taala is somebody
The world What are you going to do with that? If Allah subhanaw taala give somebody time. What are you going to do with that?
And we see that Hadith one after the other. Now mahtani ma bounnam Fie her kathira Amina NASS to neomed tuber to bounties. Many people do not even pay attention to them or they, they, they, they cause a lot of
the Sahaba their health and their time, they don't pay attention to these Paramount
the time that we spend with that illness we take for granted and our time we take for granted. So the man said the second degree of sugar is to take all of these bounties and to deploy it, to understand employ it in the service of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And yet, they said there's another one, there's one even higher than that.
And schuco Allen makari
is to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for difficulties and adversities
and they said that is a special status. That is a special status, that when we do that, that sugar that comes really from the heart. Now brothers and sisters, that is not an easy thing to do.
Now many times you meet somebody and you ask him, how are you doing? hamdulillah
Hamdulillah who nobody can be thanked for something bad except him. Somebody is complaining to you already, that I'm not in a good shape. Something is bad happening to me but hamdulillah now Sugarland makara has somebody who's truly satisfied
and thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala for the adversity that occur to him or to her.
And they see the good in it.
he said in every difficulty, I see the good in it.
I see that it wasn't worse than that it could be worse than it is that I say 100 li wasn't worse. They are also accessible. I think about the reward that comes from that difficulty
that comes from that from that problem.
So many good that can come from the problems.
That grade the older man said is a very high grade, a shoe crawl and Macari those who can thank Allah subhanahu wa taala and be content when an adversity come.
It takes a lot of a lot of sugar, a lot of a man and they said because he man when we started the hookah can be characterized can be expressed in two things subber and sugar, that person gathered both they have supper and sugar and that person would be one of the first people to be called to gender
And finally brothers and sisters I will leave you with this final thought.
One of the names of Allah Subhana what Allah is a Shaku.
This is an attribute that Allah
called himself with it.
This is such a beautiful
and high and noble
attribute that Allah and His Majesty as though Allah called himself a shaker.
Allah Himself Yesh Kuru levy bed.
Allah gives thanks to those who thank him.
And when we thank him for his bounties, he thanks us back.
And on the Day of Judgment, he thanks us with Matt Farah with forgiveness
and even more.
He dances with Jeanette
and even more.
He will thank us by allowing us to see his glorious face subhana wa tada
and doesn't shockula deserve to be thanks
Doesn't shockula deserve, that we be grateful to him day and night, to teach our children to be grateful to him.
When our children when we give them something and they thank us for it, we have to teach them to think a lot. First. We have to teach them the heat. Tell them this came from Allah first before it came from me. This bounty was in my hand because Allah gave me that.
Teach them tourism come from Allah.
Teach them their health and their wealth, and everything good comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And so was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
when he loved someone,
and when he wanted to teach his Sahaba
he sat down with more eyes
will do a lot more. And you know what he told him? He said, Well, law he will law he and the prophets of the law to send them does not need to swear does not need to make an oath. But he just emphasizing he said, Well, law he was in yellow.
Well, lahia my eyes I love you, fella. 10 Santa's food, don't you forget to say after each Sala
Allahumma inni Allah Zika wushu, Krieger, Hosni bed ethic, free words, after each Sala all helped me to remember you and to be grateful to you

He is the one who has forgiven every sin. Yet he would stand at night until his feet would break.
And when I initially said that when la cara Sula, la Take it easy on us. Ooh, la la. Why are you doing this to yourself? What did he answer? flr akuna abdon shockula Shouldn't I be a shocker should not be a slave to a lot that's grateful.
