We are continuing with our series on vivado Rahman. Today is the seventh program in the series and we are dealing with the six quality. The six quality of those people whom Allah tala refers to as a bad man, my special bondsman, my special servants, my special slaves, and indeed to be counted as a slave of Almighty Allah is indeed an honor and therefore, we have to strive to inculcate a inculcate these qualities which Allah tala has defined in Surah to farrakhan in our life. And in this quality, the sixth quality Allah tala says that abajo Ramana those were Ludhiana either unfolded when they spend the wealth let me know three four What are

00:01:31--> 00:02:21

they spending is neither in extravagance. Neither is it miserly cook anabaena Delica comma the spending is between these two extremes. So hon Allah, what a great quality and what a great aspect of the deen of Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala there are two things worth your consideration. In this quality, the sixth quality that I would like to highlight in for us to reflect Firstly, obviously is the quality itself, but also the sense of moderation and balance in every aspect of our dean. Look at this. When you spend you are not miserly, you are not extravagant and this particular sense of moderation runs through our entire Deen and it is supposed to be the Hallmark and the

00:02:21--> 00:03:05

characteristic of a believer to have moderation in every aspect of life. And when we talk about moderation I'm not talking about the moderation is is demanded sometimes by liberal politicians. Salman Rushdie once wrote in The Washington Post, that it is now time for every reality including sacred reality to be adapted to alternate realities. We're not talking about moderation we're talking about moderation which Allah Allah says in the Quran, karateka jalna como Mata wasa? We have made you adjust the balance Huma and Omar that does not fall short of the limit that does not go beyond the limit which adopts balance and moderation in every one of its teachings and every one of

00:03:05--> 00:03:47

its aspects. And this is what Nivea cream southcom said hydro morio said to her, the best of all affairs is that in which you adopt a moderate path, not falling short of the limit, not going beyond the limit. Let us look at what Islam has taught us in every aspect, in belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala you have people in one extreme, they have denied Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala How do you deny Allah subhanho wa Taala It is beyond imagination, who has given this tongue the flexibility to form words, the brain and the intellect to be able to understand these words, but yet there are people who deny Allah subhanho wa Taala so in one extreme you have those who deny Allah subhanho wa

00:03:47--> 00:04:27

Taala. On the other extreme, you have those who have many idols more than one Allah subhana wa tada in between these two extremes. He is the way of Islam. We have one Allah we believe in the existence of Almighty Allah but one Allah who is all powerful, all great, all majesty, and he is one that we rely upon him that way we rely upon no one else. We fear him as we are. And as we've not fear anyone else. This is the balance with regard to our belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala look at the belief in our in prophets. In the Gambia Naima salat wa salam look at the history of religion. It is in many ways,

00:04:28--> 00:04:59

example of extremism and one extreme, make him Allah subhanho wa Taala make him the son of Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala. On the other extreme, go to this extended to dishonor him, you do not show him respect. And as the way Allah says in a Quran, we have been a bit ad hoc. They even murdered and killed the prophets without any justification. And in between these two extremes is the way of Islam that we have, on one hand, been very, very careful not to attribute divinity to our

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

Beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Livia Kareem sauceless one day so a person making dua, Masha Allah, Masha Mohammed but Allah wishes but Muhammad wishes he said How

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

are you equating me with Allah? No I'm not Allah don't say my shell, Masha Allah Muhammad say Masha Allah, Masha Allah m, we made our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the object of our allegiance, the object of our love, the object of our loyalty, but we have never ever made him the object of worship. On the other hand, this woman had shown that respect, in that honor to his prophet that no other woman has ever shown such as expect, what what great incidents, we don't have the time to go into it, but people who are in the know would know with regard to what great respect this homebuyer chose, our beloved prophet SAW Selim, look at the beautiful balance between the two

00:05:56--> 00:06:25

extremes. We did not attribute any divinity to our professor value system. But yet we showed him that respect and honor that no one no other method showed such respect and honor. With regard to this material world people have gone into two extremes. What are the two extremes on one hand, they made this material world the be all in the end, and all of all the desires, all the ambitions and about which our beloved Nivea cream sauce used to make dua de la mulata jelenia Gora homina

00:06:26--> 00:07:14

homina Bettina, Ola don't make this material was the be all and end all of our existence, the reason why we gain knowledge and do not make it the end of all our ambitions, we do not make this material world our be all in the end all and the culmination of our desires and our objectives. And yet at the same time, we did not stay away from the legitimate pleasures of this material world. And let Allah warned us yeah, you will never you will limit to harinama halala. Here you will lead in Amanullah to remove it but opnfv do not make haram what Allah has made Helen lead to hurry motiva to not make haram the legitimate pleasures of this world. In every aspect, there is moderation and

00:07:14--> 00:07:52

balance even in character, what we have been told is to put the natural faculties in a state of equilibrium, that is good character. Again no time to explain, but that is good character is explained by our allama of Sufism. And so it is with this sixth quality of the abajo Rama that when they spend they spending is in a moderation between miserliness and between extravagant and wastefulness May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us that required balance, which is part of the Forte and the quality of the Bible. Rahman was the one and
