And the only thing I really can do is open up my door and see if
that strengthens the connection. So, today inshallah huhtala. We will be learning about the names of Allah Subhana Allah as we have been doing in the last few months and we will continue with the name of Allah, a semir. Today we will learn about the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala as me who is a semi a semi is of course Allah azza wa jal, right a lot the all hearing the all hearing and they know sometimes we think to ourselves, we should learn a semi and elbasy together the all hearing the old seeing as in Allah hears everything and Allah sees everything, but I decided to break it up because of the differences between them. A lot of the time we just pull everything together. And I know some
of you are saying that the image is a little bit low and I see that the connection link is a little bit weak on my end, let me just open my door Give me five seconds 54321 and hopefully that helps in short a lot of time either.
So a semi or sometimes we blend or merge these two names together and it becomes very
undefined. And so we will focus solely on a semi or who is a semi we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is a semi and Allah says in the Quran in Surah Surah verse number 11 ladies okay meet me he she
He must have had a boy to Allah says there is nothing like him. And this is important. When we talk about the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says laser cometh Lee shape, there is nothing, nothing, whether human, not human, nothing that is similar to a loss of handle what to Allah. Now what we learn about this is you and I, our brains, our minds, the way that we think is if a lot is a semi, then surely he can hear and what do we use to hear? Well, we use our ears as humans we use our ears, but our ear, can it be different than the ear of a cat and the ear of a bunny, right? A rabbit long ears, can it be different than the ear of a cow or the ear of animals we don't even see their
ears maybe it's tucked away and hidden underneath their fur. And so hearing is an ability that we have, and it's a it's an ability or an attribute that Allah subhanho wa Taala has he has the ability to hear and therefore Allah is the one who hears everything a semir how he hears how his you know, shape and design and everything looks we leave that we
Don't need to really know that. And in fact, the last panel boy to Allah does not let us you know, know these things for a reason. There are certain things, as I mentioned that believe last week that Allah subhanho wa Taala did not tell us about because we don't need to waste our time on it. Of course, of course curiosity is there, right? every single human being wants to know, how does Allah look? What does he look like. And that's from the beauty of being able to work hard, and then attaining gender. And knowing that when we enter into paradise, we'll be able to meet a loss of handle what to add. And so the ability to see a lot, right is a reward and a blessing only for those
who work really hard right now, and not even knowing what Allah subhana wa tada looks like.
So, a semir, the one who can hear everything
is mentioned in the Quran an almost 50 times about 45 times in the Quran. And Allah, a semir is the one who hears all voices, regardless of language. So whether we speak English or someone who speaks Arabic or another speaks French or someone speaks, to do or push to, or someone speaks Bahasa Malaysia, Indonesia, or someone speaks Japanese, or someone speaks Portuguese, or whatever language it is out there. Allah subhanho wa Taala. As a Samir, he is able to hear and understands all voices, all sounds, regardless of the language. Now an interesting thing here is a semir doesn't only listen to you and I, as human beings, a semir listens to the animals, the trees, the mountains, grass, the
buildings around us, everything is busy in tests be in praising Allah subhanho wa Taala glory glorifying Allah subhana wa wa to Allah, and Allah hears the praise of his creation. And so we usually think of a semi as the one who hears us, and we feel very entitled, but Allah subhana wa Tada, here's the jinn as well. And remember, there were prophets of Allah subhana wa adatto, who could hear certain animals communicate with animals, communicate with the mountains communicate with the jinn like so they man Allah has sent them. And so when we think of a semi, the one who is all hearing, he doesn't only hear languages, he is able to understand everything that is being
mentioned, whether good or bad. A semir does not get distracted by multiple voices or multiple requests. So now you're sitting at home and you're thinking to yourself, the children are making noise, and they don't want to stop talking and listen, and you can hear the lecture. And then you tell them Be quiet, be quiet, stop talking, we can't hear we can't focus. And then there's someone who's rushing out of the shower, another child is getting dressed Mom, Mom, what should I wear? What should I put on? And then you know, there's noise in the kitchen and the children like stop making noise. And you know, you might be playing your video games later in the day, like I can't hear
anything. A semir doesn't get distracted by all the different sounds and voices and noises that are out there. A semir is able to hear every single thing and understand every single thing as clearly as they are mentioned even more clearly than that, right? Because sometimes we don't hear something. So clearly a seminary knows it, even if we whisper it. And we'll see examples of that. A semir
does not get overwhelmed by the amount of requests. So we mentioned multiple different noises, multitasking sounds and voices. But what about getting overwhelmed? Sometimes there's too much going on in our lives. And we think to ourselves, I can't deal with this. This is too much. I can't take it. How am I supposed to focus? How am I supposed to do my job? How am I supposed to read? How am I supposed to understand how am I supposed to write? How am I supposed to memorize the Quran with all this noise that's happening around me or sometimes myself when I'm at work or I'm you know, doing things with the community. Someone's sitting in my office family is going through some issues.
another person's calling me emails are coming through my inbox. People are messaging me, it's like so much happening. And I get so overwhelmed. I think to myself, How am I supposed to listen to every single person with every single request and every single thing that's going on, and this is where a semir is able to not only hear the multiple different sounds and the multiple different languages, but a semir It doesn't even get overwhelmed
whelmed by every single thing that is out there. And this brings me to unimportant Howdy.
This is a hadith courtesy, which means, this is a hadith that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah told him to tell us. So the Quran is the speech of Allah, the word of Allah that is compiled and composed in what we know is the Quran, the holy book, but there are other things that Allah Subhana Allah mentioned to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he is to relate to us.
From those things, Allah Subhana beuter, and it says to the Prophet, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to say to us,
he says, Allah says, All my slaves or servants,
if the first of you, and the last of you, the human of you, and the gin of you,
were to stand all together in one place.
Each of you requesting something from me, from Allah.
And if I were to give every one of you what you requested,
that would not decrease what I have, as in his ability, that would not decrease what I have any more than a needle decreases the see when it's dipped into it and taken out. So for those of you that have a needle, or you might have a pin, right, a hijab pin, right, a pin for your scarf. And so you take that pin, and
you dip it in some water and take it out how much water is left on that, not even a droplet. In fact, the droplet that sticks to it falls right off. So nothing decreases from that. See, let's go back and learn this Hadeeth step by step in shot laterra Allah.
Allah says, All my servant,
if the first of you and the last of you, this means the very first of the creation,
Adam alayhis salam, until the end of time, basically all of the human beings that ever lived on the face of this earth that ever lived in the past and that will live in the future.
All the human beings are a place and a loss of power with Allah says, and all of the jinn were put together in one place. I know some of you will be like, Oh my god, we're standing with the jinn. Don't worry, this is from Allah.
He says, if all the humans in all the gym from the beginning of time until the end of time were put together in one place, and every single one of the human beings that ever existed, and every single one of the gym that ever existed
was to ask a law for whatever they wanted.
Now think of it we just mentioned a lot does it become overwhelmed and he's able to understand all the sounds and all the voices and all the languages so he says if everyone comes together and ask from a law what you want What is it that you want in your life you making while you're asking Allah Allah bless my parents yeah Allah grant me health you know law save me from this pandemic or look here this sick Yeah, Allah bless our masajid Yeah, Allah you know, spread this Deen Allah make us from amongst those that are wealthy. Yeah, I must strengthen our email. Well, they'll make us happy than half of the foreign or a lot increase us in knowledge or a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot asking all
of these things from our last panel.
If we were to do that all together all at once every single one of the humans in the gym.
Allah's ability to not only hear on law says, If I were to give all of you everything that you requested, it wouldn't even take away anything from the abilities that Allah subhanho wa Taala has a lot of work about. Allahu Akbar. Isn't that amazing? Allahu Akbar. It wouldn't even decrease from the ability that Allah has like you dipping one of those needles or pins into water and taking it out how much water is left on it? Nothing.
It goes away, it's dry right away.
Isn't that beautiful? Allahu Akbar that shows the ability of a semir in listening and hearing us now why is this important? Because some
Sometimes we do things in our lives and we think to ourselves
I don't know if he's hearing me. And people come in, they ask questions and say download or share or mmm so and so. does Allah hear my Dora? is Allah listening to my requests? Well Allah fulfill my, my needs in this dunya and in the era. And the answer to that is
that we don't trust that Allah will and has the ability to do so.
Allah will and he says he will do Rooney, a study biller can call upon me asked me and I will answer you but we don't fully and truly believe that Allah has the ability to do so. We think he does. We acknowledge that he does. But when we make when we make do our we really don't sit there thinking. Allah is listening to me directly and if we do and hamdulillah but for a lot of people that are struggling with this issue, with the issue of hearing, or Allah hearing what we are asking,
they think, why would alone listen to me? When people have problems and people are going through issues and people are suffering and this is happening and that's happening when the world is the way it is? Why would Allah listen to me? Because I can and has the ability to? Let's look at another example. And we'll move
on to Long Island wherein he reported he says, We accompanied the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on a journey. When we end when we were on this journey, every time that we climbed up a hill, or we were walking up, right it's from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to praise a low when we're going uphill, right? So he said, when we were on this journey with the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. Every time that we were climbing up a hill or walking up higher,
we would say out loud, La Ilaha. In long, long, a long walk, Mom, Oh, Mom, Mom, mom, they would see it out loud, thinking that a lot can't hear them.
But what does the prophet SAW the longer it was sending them see to the next will move Saudi Arabia longer and he says when we would do this, we would see law you know, in the modern world, really loudly.
And he says, then the Prophet son alone were heavy us sanlam admonished us, as in he was, he was upset. He basically got disappointed with them.
And he said to them, all people take it easy.
He who you are calling, calling upon a lot a semi. He says he who you are calling
is not deaf. nor is he absent.
He is with you. He is hearing and he is near.
He is with you. In his knowledge. He's aware of what's going on. He's aware of the situation. He knows what you're doing and what you're going through and what you're experiencing.
And he is hearing
and he is near. So when someone is near to us, do we Yeah, like you are really far away right now. Right? You're far away. I'm here at the mustard in my office. You're at home somewhere in Milton, you might be in Sydney, Australia, you might be in London, England or London, Ontario, you might be in another country or even another continent.
I'm not standing here going a salon alaikum at the top of my lungs, right?
I feel that you're near because of the technology we have.
But if you were right in front of me, I probably would be speaking even quieter. I wouldn't raise my voice as much. So the closer we are to something or someone, the less we raise our voices on what is a semir and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us how but he's not deaf. Right? He can hear you. He's not absent, as in he's not unaware of your situation. He's fully aware of every single thing that you're going through and experiencing. So call upon him beautifully. nicely. Basically the profits on a longer either Us and Them is telling this How about the longer and home communicate to a law in nice, gentle ways. Now you can imagine us as Muslims if we were walking
around and if we
Had to yell every single time that we wanted to call upon the Muslim kind of war to add. Imagine getting into an airplane, right and you're about to take off the planes about to leave and all the Muslims start yelling, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Allah Subhana. Allah, Allah.
Allah who mcrainey what in our have been alone? funnybone? Who would that plane even take off? Probably not.
Right? If you were in school, or you were in the grocery store, right, and someone answers your phone, and or sort of Sir, you answer your phone, someone's calling you you answer your phone and you're talking to someone, and they tell you of someone who passed away.
You don't go in
here at all.
We don't do that a lot. Here's us, even if we whisper, unlocking hear us. And in fact, we mentioned already in the past that a lot is
a lie, Aleem. Allah knows what we conceal within us. So even if our door is made within us, a law is fully aware of what we are feeling, and what we are thinking, and what we are intending what we are planning, a law is able to understand all of these things, whether we verbally actually mentioned it or not.
My brothers and sisters,
a cemetery, not only is he listening, but there is an angel on the right. And there is an angel on the left, and the angels are writing down every single statement that we make. And so a semi can hear. But a semir also has those angels writing down documenting what we say. And this is an important lesson for every single one of us. Because when we think of this,
everything that we say sometimes we let it go, we think oh, yeah, all right. I'll make Toba later on and Allah will forgive me, or we forget that Allah is actually a seminar and listening to what we're saying. And so we blurt things out, like last week in our YMCA youth program, I was talking to them about swearing, and how Allah is aware of what we say. And we were teaching these teenagers about a seminar, but about the ability to control ourselves because all of what we say will be written by the angels on our shoulders, the good that we say, written by this angel on the right, and the bad that we say, written by this angel on the left, and this is why when we finished our sauna, we say,
a set and we're on a Kumara hermeto. And we looked at our shoulder letting this angel note, write it down, buddy, write it down. And then we say
we're on a Kumara net.
And we give Sam to this angel letting him know, I'm a good boy. I'm a good girl, right? I'm doing what's right, I'm following the command of Allah. I'm following the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and assumere is aware of it. So you can write whatever I say no problem there, because I will only say what is good and what is true and what is right.
Allah is hearing
is of two types.
On lows hearing, or the hearing of a semi ear is of two types.
First of all, he listens. Right? He's able to listen to what we're saying. Okay, so sometimes you talk to people and they're not even listening to you. It's
gone right in one ear out the other ear, like in any drama clip, but probably some of you are sitting there right now listening to this and you're just like, I don't even know what he just said. Right? You're looking at me and your parents might tap you on the shoulder. What did he just say? And you're like, I don't know. Right? Because it's going in one ear and out the other but a semi listens to what we are saying.
But the second type of hearing of a seminar is
to what is heard.
responding to what he listens to.
What does that mean? When Allah subhanho wa Taala hears us into Allah when Allah subhana wa tada hears us into our heart, right? We mentioned Allah says, Only SDG bloco Allah subhana wa tada hears us into our heart in being a semi dwarf
or when you're praying your sauna, and you'll come
up from it'll court, you're in the report and you come up, what do you say? semirara Allahu leemon hamidah you're making a statement glorifying Allah that He hears. Right? Not only does he hear he hurt, right, Sonia Allahu leemon, hamidah those who praised him. And what happens when we call upon a lot when he listens to what we say, right? He heard he's all hearing and he listened to what we say. But he's responding to what he heard with what, with rewards
with giving us or granting us what it is that we're asking for.
And so, if you ask a lot, or you say, Subhana, Allah and Allah hears it rewards are, they're guaranteed for you, for us. And so whatever it is that we say that's good,
is higher and will help us in the hereafter. And to conclude, my brothers and my sisters, as believers in Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Knowing that Allah hears every single thing that we say, should encourage us to control our tongues control what we actually say or utter and it should discourage us from saying things that are bad.
It should discourage us from seeing things that are bad
as believers try to always say good things at the beginning of this lecture, whatever, right? I quoted an ayah Yeah, and you're letting in ermine, it took a lot more work. Gulu, Colin said EDA. Allah Subhana. Allah says all you believe.
Be conscious of Allah. And say that which is good or true or right, what Gulu Colin said either. Why? Because there's things that will come from a lot if we do so. You'll sleep no come home alone will make things better for us and easier for us while feed locums Oh, no welcome and the loss of Henry Taylor will forgive us of our sins. Well meal they know how our soul identifies fit phones and narrow Lima and whoever has this consciousness of a loss of Hanoi Tana and is aware of Allah azza wa jal and follows the messenger and sort of follows Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Those are the people who truly have succeeded. They're the winners. They are successful.
My brothers and sisters, we conclude by sending Peace and blessings upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
As Allah subhanho wa Taala says that he and his angels do a lot more Sunday Allah Mohammed
