and sisters today we continue along with our series on the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala for today's Juma lecture and as we mentioned last week, and you know, every time that we do this online in this sort of format, you know, this is not a jamario hookah rather This is a lecture for the Juma time. And we do encourage people to learn and to joumana time, just like we typically would when we come to the masjid, but to also make sure that you are going to pray your vote of prayer with your family at home or with whoever it is that you are around.
So again, this is not a substitute for the hotel. This is not your hook, but and then you pray Juma at home, you will pray for a lot at home and shuttle Lakota and so today we're going to cover the name of Allah Allah haleem al haleem and there's an interesting you know, reason why I gave in to this name today. First of all, we look at some of the examples that allow some kind of way to Ida mentions in the Quran with regards to this name of his Allah haleem Allah Subhana Allah says in verse number 51 of surah two
while long we are l mo Murphy upon will be working on long already man Hani Allah subhana wa to Allah says in Surah two as long we are Allah Momofuku, because Allah knows what is in your hearts what you conceal within you. What can Allahu Allah even had email?
And verily, Allah is
a demon, the all knowing he knows everything that's within us, whatever we conceal all the secrets, all of the, you know, thoughts and emotions and feelings that we have within us. I Lehman haleema. So he doesn't only know but he is also Halima, and we'll explain that in a couple of minutes in sha Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala also says in Surah Baqarah verse number 263, following
saw the quality at Bell berubah
one more honey, honey, mustard pan with Alice's Cola, marital form Have you played on Minnesota cotton yet?
You know, when you give a sadhaka
and you follow it up with you know, boasting or you follow it up with, you know, telling others that you're better than them or you follow it up with, you know, cursing and being like, Oh, look at you, you know, you're in this position. Why can't you work harder? What can't you provide for your family? Who do you think you are here, take my money, right? Go to my roof. Well, mobile theater, when you say something nice to the person who's receiving that sadhaka or you
You are forgiving, or very kind, very understanding of that person and what they're going through a loss of how to hold to LSS clay if it is better. So it's better for us to say something nice to someone who's in need, or to be forgiving or understanding of that person's situation when they are in need. That is better for us than giving them stuck on being like here, take my money, I don't need it anyways, you can use it if you need some more, let me know boasting about it or saying something bad about them like you should work harder. You know, how dare you do this Shame on you, your family did this and that for you and look at where you are today. So controlling our tongues
are is absolutely important or controlling our tongue right? Each one of us has one is absolutely important, absolutely important and better and more preferred by Allah Subhana which added to say something nice than it is to give that sadaqa and then Allah Subhana with Allah says, will love of onion halleen Allah subhanho wa Taala is honey, he is far more wealthy and more abundant and more able and more capable. And we'll learn that name very soon. inshallah Tada, Helene, what is happening? So we said that Allah Subhana, Allah is Allah haleem. And that's our name of Allah that we are learning for today in sha Allah. And so and haleem is the one who does not rush to punish
someone, or to you know, give them what they deserve of what they're doing,
upon creating a sin. So and haleem is the one who does not rush to punish his creation,
for the sins that they are committing, or have committed in the past, and hallym he doesn't rush into it. So Allah Subhana Allah is the one who takes his time well understands people and their situation and what they're going through a loss of hanaway to Allah created us so he knows us better than we know our own selves, right? Allah knows us better than we know our own selves. And haleem doesn't rush into punishing us. So when we commit a sin, or we do something wrong, or we say something that is displeasing to Allah subhana wa to Allah, he doesn't rush into punishing us. And helping him is also patient in waiting for a positive change to come from us. So haleem is patient
and waits for us to bring something nice to present. So you commit a sin, but you follow it up with Toba or you follow it up with is still fall. Right? So Allah waits for that to come around. Or, you know, you were giving us sadaqa, for example, and you said something wrong, and then you turn around and realize you know what, this is wrong, you go and apologize to the person and you say something nice to them. And Helene is waiting for us to do that. And Helene, this ties in very closely to what we learned last week, Allah Subhana Allah is a shocker, he gives us even more than what we present to him. Right? So we said we do one good deed, and Allah Subhana, Allah multiplies it by 10. Or by,
you know, even up to 700 times and even more, if you will. And so I'll haleem is the one who will wait to bring about goodness to us when we follow up with goodness, right. And so and Helene is not only the one who does not rush to punish the creation when they commit sins. And haleem is also the one who is patient in waiting for a positive change. And haleem continues to provide, even for those who disobey Him, He continues to provide even for those who disobey Him.
Look at this
beautiful statement sapan Allah, Allah subhanho, wa, taala and haleem, right with all that people say about him. And an example of that is given by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he says, none, none is more patient than when you think of yourself and you think of patience. Think of what you've gone through in life. Think of the things that you've said, the things that you've done, the places you've gone, and then the hardship that you've experienced afterwards, or throughout that, right. Think of the hardship that came to you at a time when you needed money, but you didn't have it, or you needed family and support, but you didn't have it, or you needed someone to talk to.
But there was no one there. Think of the time that you were all alone, and you wish to have a friend or a companion. Think of the time when you lost a family member and you wish to simply see them one more time. Think of the time when you know, you open the fridge and you saw that there was nothing that you could provide for your family and your bank account was empty and there was nothing there for you. And Helene was there and able to give to you and provide for you and continue a loss of habitat as we saw, you know, he is, you know, funny and he is all forgiving. And not only that he's a close up he provides and so on and so forth. But think of the hardship and the times that you've
gone through and how we
lost patience throughout those difficult times, while the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, none is more patient than Allah.
So Allah is patient, none is more patient than a law, against the harmful sayings of people who he hears saying things about him like, he has children, or ascribing children to him. So Allah hears it, he knows that people are saying, you know, so and so person is the Son of God. And you know, the angels are the children of God are the daughters of God. When he has a villa We ask Allah Subhana Allah to protect us and guide every single one of us to what is true and what is right. But Allah, here's what the people say about him. But he is the most patient in what they say and how they say it yet, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continues to say, yet he gives them health and
provision that is, he gives them health, so they disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala, but he still gives to them, right? He gives to them, their provisions, their wealth, their health, their family, everything that they need in this life, and haleem gives to them Allah azza wa jal gives to them. Why because his patient in waiting for goodness to come from them, even though they are still cursing him, even though they are still disobeying him even though they are still committing show can doing so many different things that Allah Subhana Allah is displeased with. They are his creation and he fulfills his end of the responsibility, right? So he gives to his creation and will
continue to give to his creation. And Allah subhanho wa Taala even when he talks about punishment, he mentions in the various different places in the Quran, if you look through it, where Allah mentions punishment, he also mentions that those who committed the sins or did wrong if they repent and seek forgiveness, he will forgive
Allah Subhana Allah, He will forgive, even when he mentioned his punishment to those who disobeyed him.
He remains and this is the this is the the aspect of a lot being an haleem that he reminds his creation if you simply seek forgiveness, and repent from what you've done, then, and haleem forgives and pardons. And not only that, Allah subhana wa tada after all that people say and do and disobeying him. He still forgives as we just learned, and a law and haleem still protect even though people are committing show even though people are lying about him, even though people are disobeying him even though the leavers are committing sins not don't just think of the non believers, right think of the believers even though believers are committing sins. Even though we are disobeying a
law we may be late with our prayers we may be forgetful of our prayers, right or not mindful of it. We are too busy sometimes too busy for prayer too busy for a law right? But so kind of low when we think of it. Even though as a believer we might miss out on doing the things that are a compulsory action to for us to fulfill within our Deen and haleem still will protect us
and the haleem
will continue to invite to paradise whether believer or non believer and heading continues to invite us to paradise continues to you know invite those who commit sin or those whether they are believers or non believers, who are committing sin from the small sins to the greatest sins, he continues to invite towards paradise. And Helene accepts repentance of those who commit the sin. So you commit the sin. Remember, we said and Helene doesn't rush to punish. He waits and he's patient to see what is this believer going to do? Are they going to follow it up with repentance? Are they going to seek forgiveness? Are they going to give some sadaqa? Are they going to replace the sin with something
that's good? But Allah haleem accepts that repentance and haleem remove the sins that we've committed. Not only does he remove them, he changes them. You bet the SAE
has an add on loss of Hannah water either changes. Those say add those things that we've committed, he removes them as sins, He changes them into good deeds and banks them in our book of good deeds. And haleem is also the one who is generous to all of the creation, whether believer or non believer. You notice that as believers we have the things that we have and enjoy of this
World hamdulillah you'll notice as non believers they have the things that they have and enjoy of this world and hamdulillah.
But the real question there is, are we believing simply for this world are we believing for the Hereafter, those who fall short, those who are forgetful, those who reject they live solely and mainly purposely for this life. As believers, we know that there's this life, and we're patient with it, and we move on, in the hereafter. So and haleem, as we saw, you know, multiple examples. And I want to in sha Allah to Allah end with this one example.
The example that the profits on the long run either usnm gives of the mother, the example, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gives of the mother, when the mother is running around, right, the mother is running around, looking for her child. Remember, this was at the time of the Sahaba of the love and home, when you know, people were taken as prisoners of war. And there was a mother who was separated from her child, and she was looking for her child and she could not find her child. And so the prophets on a long line, he was send them Caesar running around in the crowd, and she's looking for her baby. And this baby is still feeding from her. And she's looking and looking and
looking, where's this baby. And eventually she finds her baby and she starts to feed her baby, and she's showing love to her child. You know, she's caring for her child. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam points out this mother to the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu. Look at the love of this mother. Look at how much she cares for her child. Do you think that this that this mother would ever take this child and throw her child into a fire? You think of it in your own homes, how many of us have children, we get really sad, we get really upset, we get really hurt, we become depressed we have anxiety, when we see our child fall down and scrape their knee or break a finger or break a
bone in their arm or their leg, we you know, get really really upset or really disappointed, we feel extremely low when the pain that our children suffer from is increased more and more and what could be more than burning? Right? What could be more than burning in the fire taking this baby and throwing it in the fire. Now this is an example that the prophets on a long ladder us send them is giving to the Sahaba of the Allahu I know, what do you think of this mother who loves this child so much? Imagine you're at home, blah, blah, blah, we ask a lot to protect every single one of us. But I know I've seen cases of this many times of community members who you know, their child got burnt
at home because of food on the stove or something happens. And it really makes life very difficult for months, sometimes four years for the family. You know, they have to go through this hardship and extreme difficulty. And what do we see in the end?
We see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
when he asks the Sahaba of the alumni to think that this mother would ever take her child and throw it in the fire? Absolutely not. It's It's It's kind of like, you know, a question that the answer is already there. No, no way. Absolutely not. That's obvious. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam indicates to the Sahaba of the lover through this question, and follows it up by saying a law. And we know a law is a haleem. Right? is even more loving to his creation than this mother to the child.
So do you think a law and help him once his creation us human beings to end up in the fire to end up being hurt? being burnt? being you know, put through hardship and difficulty not only in jahannam? But what about the time of the buzzer? What about the difficulties of this life for disobeying Allah subhanho wa Taala, Hannah, all of these things we need to think of my brothers and sisters, and honey doesn't want hardship for us. And he will be patient and go the distance to do more and more and more. Just like the mother who sees the child or the father, but usually the mother who sees the child, you know, disobeying them and going through hardship in life and following through with what
their friends are doing that may be wrong and displeasing to Allah, the mother will still find that soft spot within them and say, one day you're going to realize come Let me make you dinner. One day you're going to realize our door at home is always open. One day you're going to realize what is it that you need Let me help you in life and the mother will continue to give and the father will continue to give and as parents they will continue to look after their child. But Allah Subhana Allah has no children.
Allah is looking after his creation
who he loves more than the mother he created for her child who he created as well.
See, we think as the mother loving the child because the child came from the mother, but who did the mother, you know who created the mother and who created the child a lot. So his love for the two of them is even more than their love for each other. My brothers and sisters and haleem is waiting for us to call out and ask for forgiveness. And Helene is waiting for us to give those setup got give that sidecar as you saw a pop up on the screen in front of you on YouTube and on Facebook, right? donations for the mustard. It's Friday. It's Friday, we need to help our mustard. We need to continue this and I'm not going to go on and on for it. But I'm going to say a haleem is the one who
will change our sins into good deeds. When we follow through with seeking forgiveness. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a day in a day, he would ask Allah for forgiveness over 100 times. How many times do we ask Allah for forgiveness? How many times do we go for a walk? And every step that we take, we say I still feel a lot. I still feel a lot. So federal law, I still feel a lot. I still feel a lot. Imagine if we were walking to the masjid and we were doing so far. Right? Imagine if we were, you know, still, you know, thinking of a loss of handler to handle while we were working, or while we were driving by doing is still thought think of the amount of good deeds that
we would bank. Think of the amount of good deeds that we would bank. You know, some of you are asking, you know, as a donation machine outside of the mustard No, but you can simply go to the mustard website, which is www dot econo milton.com and you can donate there exactly the same way you would donate at the machine in the mustard. Well, you're not going to tap your card to your phone, probably not. But you know, you can donate there and shot a lot of data and still you'll get your automated, you know, tax receipt at the end of the year and shut a lot of data sent to you through an email. So my brothers and sisters and Helene is the name of a law that we take today. And Helene
is deserving. As we learned last week, Allah subhanho wa Taala is a show called vokalia luminary birdie is Shaku and very little of us as believers, you know are going to going to seek that forgiveness from Allah subhana wa tada through being thankful to him. So my brothers and sisters be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And no, my brother, Denise, you made a spelling mistake in the website that you posted a lie about a peak. So I always ask people to post the website there in the chat to remind one another and get the reward, get the reward of others who might donate, you know, by seeing that message that you post there. So I always encourage people to write the mustard
website in the chat, www econo milton.com. And if someone sees that and clicks on it, or remembers it and goes to the website and donates afterwards, my brothers and sisters Think of how we can maximize our rewards from a lot zoa gem. And so my brothers and sisters today, we think of an headin, and we learn about haleem. And so if haleem is gentle upon us, shouldn't we as believers Be gentle upon others? Shouldn't we be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for teaching us this lesson of how to not to rush to punish our child sometimes, right? How to not rush to punish our child, but rather maybe stop and just talk to them. Right? Instead of yelling at them, maybe just speaking to
them nicely, getting down on a knee or sitting at their level and discussing things with them. And I know it's difficult. I'm a father as well. I'm a parent also, I know how difficult it is at times, we just lose it. But we need to catch ourselves in the moment and try to control ourselves and regain that ability to turn to a loss of Hannah, Hannah and Helene in a way that he would turn to us being more understanding being more you know, pleasant with others. And I want to I want to end with a simple example. The example of Prophet Musa Allah who sent him when Allah subhanho wa Taala tells him go and say hula hoop Colin Lena La La who yet Cara Oh.
Musa alayhis salam is told to go to fit our own fit around. Allah is saying that maybe fit around himself out of all of the bad that he's done in his life and of all of the bad that he was still continuing to do. A lot uses this example to show us go to fit our own Moosa and speak nicely and kindly to him. For me, he will remember that he is not what he thinks he is, he is a creation of Allah, and he will submit to Allah. And he may be he will feel that, that that consciousness and that fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala within We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant us a deeper understanding of this Deen and to make this from amongst those who submit to Allah as
Well, my brothers and sisters, please, as I mentioned, don't forget your Masjid. Don't forget, you know, your local Masjid. Don't forget to donate for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to help to maintain, you know, the services that we have ongoing still people are asking, why is the mustard completely closed, we are still offering our services. And we the management and the staff are still maintaining the prayers. In fact, you know, some of the brothers are there, you know, the management and management is made up of brothers and sisters as well. So, you know, they're there to fulfill the Friday Juma prayer in the masjid, of course, not going over 10 people, and somehow to let you

But go ahead, you know, and, you know, shift for the other shift with a friend, whoever else is able to lead the Juma prayer, you know, for the 10 people that are there, or the nine people in front of them, then Alhamdulillah when I finished a live stream, I actually went out into my car and went home. And so we're all in this together. And I know that you're saying Yeah, but you get to print the most Yes, I know, I
understand. And, and Hamdulillah, Allah Subhana Allah has blessed every single one of us with an ability to do something for the sake of Allah, you have a gift, you have a gift, and you have a gift. Every single one of us has something from a loss of hand with Allah that we can give back. And even if it is, even if it is spending a minute into asking Allah Allah, allow me to return to the masjid. I didn't use to come five times a day. I didn't even use to come once a day I didn't use to come more than once a week maybe only for Juma but when the masjid reopened, I will be there yet Allah Please grant me the ability to do so.
