Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
Angela bloglovin salatu salam ala Ashraf in mercy Encino Mohammed. Ernie, he was so happy today insha Allah will be talking about her Snowdin Nebula is something different. We'll come back to the Sahaba inshallah we'll talk about them in sha Allah is here
if it is not in this during this series of Halaqaat and the next one but
it's just thought about doing something different today one of the rules of guidance that we need to know we need to be aware of as Muslims and it's taken. Our rule tonight is taken from an area in Surah
An Nisa i 40. In Surah Nisa, in Allahu La of limbo. Miss Carla Dara. Indeed, Allah subhanho wa Taala does not do injustice, even as much as an atom's wait. This is what Allah Subhana Allah said, in Surah Nisa, in a force. And this part of this I have 40 has included the great principle of our deen It basically provides a wonderful information about Allah subhanaw taala about our Creator. And it says that Allah subhanaw taala does not make acts of injustice. This word the ISA here
and this beautiful meaning about our creators subhanho wa Taala it was emphasized or has been emphasized, in different ayat
in the book of Allah subhanaw taala in the Sunnah of His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a different area in Surah Tunis Allah subhanaw taala said in Allahu Allah I have Luminesce Shia
in Allah Allah I have Luminesce Shaya when I came to NASA and Fusa homie of LIMU. So in this iron, Surah Tunis, Allah subhanaw taala said Allah Verily, Allah does not wrong, the people at all, but it is the people who are wronging themselves.
So Verily, Allah does not wrong the people in any way of shape this is the conclusion that we can derive from this AI. And the justice of Allah subhanaw taala is a perfect justice, it does not allow for any kind of oppression against his servants.
And when Allah subhanaw taala was talking about his justice between males and females,
because this is something that is sometimes mentioned, there are some Muslim women who think that Allah subhanaw taala has favored men over them, for example, this is one of the issues that are raised time to time,
even within our own Muslim community, right? We're humans and many things are crossing our minds. We keep thinking about things as we live in this life and we see thing things happening in our in front of our eyes. So Allah subhanaw taala, we're talking about his justice between males and females. He said when the Yemen Minnesota happened in Saudi Hatem in the Korean
War, who were mostly known for Hola, Iike, yet hallucinogen wala youth lagoon and Akira.
So he said that whoever does righteous deeds, this is the justice of Allah subhanaw taala whether male or female, it doesn't matter.
Everyone is equal in front of Allah subhanho wa taala. Well, being a believer, so he's doing righteous deeds, while being a believer, those who will enter paradise and will not be wronged even as much the speck on a date seed, you know the date seed.
If you open a date, any date, and you take the seed out of the state, there is a small spot at the back of the seat. So Allah subhanaw taala This is called Nakia in Arabic language. It's a small mark that is found on a date seed. And Allah Subhana Allah says, He said no one will be wronged even as much the speck of a date seat on a spell on a date seat in a different area, Allah subhanaw taala said, negated injustice from his judgments from his deeds. And he said about talking about some people he said, Well I use law Munna Fatima that people wouldn't be will not be wronged or injustice is not done to them even as much fatigue bill is talking about Fatima here. They're Oyama. They said
the 15th is the thread that is inside the date seat.
If you take the Tate cede the last battle was talking this language because the people the Arabs at that time were very familiar with this day it was part of their daily menu Allah Jota Allah Allah
So they were familiar with these things and everyone is familiar with this fruit, right? You take the date seed, and the thread is the it's a small line that is found on the date seat. Allahu Allah Allah Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala saying what is in saying in this Iolo Munna Fatima in a different in a hadith Guzzi Allah subhanaw taala said female we hear so la Salamandre be yeah a body in the haram to lumen and FC was you have to be in a coma Mohammed fell out of Allah mu Oh my servants I have forbidden Myself or oppression for myself and made it forbidden among you. So do not oppress one another.
Now this beautiful concept should be you know should be at the core of our belief our aqidah are credible to Allah subhanaw taala in Allah Munna, zona, and evil, Allah subhanaw taala is far removed from being oppressive. And this happy they could be shaken sometimes in our hearts, when we face some circumstances or some situations. One of them is
when we face them on an individual level. There are some people who face some circumstances some calamities, deal with some hardship, you know, and they feel that they are being treated unjustly, or that Allah subhanaw taala hates them.
And you hear some of them saying life is unfair.
Life is not fair.
And basically, when you think about it, life does not give anything, nor does it take away anything. So in reality, they are blaming Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, they are not blaming something else. When they say life is not fair. Or they're complaining about Allah subhanho wa taala.
Some of them some of the some other people, they feel that they are so bad.
And therefore they do not deserve the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the giver, they end up giving up, they give up worshiping Allah subhanho wa taala. So they recognize their mistakes and their shortcomings. Instead of turning back to Allah, we turn away from Allah subhanho wa taala. And this thought,
process tells us that we do not know know Allah subhanaw taala we have not we don't have enough knowledge about his attributes, about his names, about the way he treats his servants the way he takes care of his servants and this universe in his creation. The second situation, the second situation, yeah, one my trigger might be triggered by or it might this situation might trigger these thoughts, when especially when we watch global news, and we hear about methane and the killing of children, or women and innocent people during wars during events of military conflicts. And we feel like any this should not have happened. Right? This is what we feel sometimes. And this is a good
statement if we question the crimes of the perpetrators?
It's a good question. It's a good statement, I would say if we question the crimes of the criminals of those perpetrators, those who committed those crimes, but the question could be made in a different way. Why did Allah allow this to happen?
Why did Allah allow this to happen? And this question itself could have different implications.
One of them could be innocent, we just make this question.
To know trying to know the wisdom behind allowing those atrocities to take place.
So you are a true servant of Allah, you believe in the wisdom of Allah in the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa taala. But you make this question, trying to know the wisdom behind those events.
But without any feelings of resentment or anger towards the color of Allah subhanho wa taala.
So this is the first case here, which is fine. But this question could have a different implication. And it could be loaded with feelings of resentment of anger, or objections to the decree of Allah subhanaw taala.
And those who are familiar with the arguments of the atheists, they should be familiar familiar with the state, they say, the atheists, those who deny the existence of Allah subhanaw taala they say if he exists, if he's there. So why does He allow all these atrocities to take place? This is one of their arguments.
Right? And these people have committed a major
mistake that many educated people I'm not saying, educated people are deceived by it. But this mistake is what's happening here. They created, they have a created profile for God subhanho wa taala.
Allah subhanaw taala, or God does not fit in this profile, then he does not exist in their, in their opinion. It's like telling your child, exactly. Just think about it this way, you have to behave.
You listen to my instructions.
And if you don't do, then you don't exist.
You see my point here,
you tell your child, you have to follow my instructions, you have to obey my commands, you listen to me. If you don't do it, then you don't exist.
So they expect Allah subhanaw taala to operate in this universe to, to do things in this universe the way they want,
based on their thoughts, and their limited imagination, human imagination,
based on the limited knowledge, and if these things don't happen the way they want, then he does not exist.
This is their argument. And I want you to think about it very well.
So now in this case, we have the man who is the child of Adam, who is limited by his own perceptions limited by his own knowledge limited by his own human imagination, trying to control the actions who the one who is the actions or the deeds of the one who is unlimited in his knowledge, and his wisdom in his power.
Annie, it's not possibly one How can we really understand the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala the supreme being who has created all these galaxies and this universe, and if he wants for something to exist, he will just issue the command B and it will be
how can we understand the power of Allah subhana wa Taala there are no words to express the dimensions of his power. Except if we go back to the Quran the way he described. If we want to understand the nature of his power, we need to go back to the Quran. The Divine statements that are found in the book of Allah subhanaw taala in Umrah who either are the shaman and the Akula who can fare cool. This is in surah Yaseen, when he wills certain things he commands it be. And it is, he told me how I tell you, I don't know Allahu Allah. This is what Allah subhanaw taala told us.
That is the nature of his power. If he wants something to exist, he will just say B and it will be this what he said, confer cool.
So now we are one,
to have a better understanding of this matter, we need to you know, you need to think or understand the following points, there are a couple of points that I would like to mention.
To have a better relationship with Allah subhanaw taala with Allah subhanaw taala. To think well, if Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to have personal, non
personal domine Billa having good opinion about Allah subhanaw taala we need to understand few things. Now the first thing is that Allah subhanaw taala is the owner of this universe. He has the ultimate ownership in this of this universe. He is the king, and Medic, and he's in Malik the owner.
And he does whatever he wishes in his in his kingdom subhanho wa taala. Now I'll give you an example of a human king. If a human kingdom has any command and some of his officers to do some work, and then all of them completed their task, all of them achieved what he wanted them to do.
And then he gave he paid one of them, his full wages, but he did not give the rest of the officers their wages, then everyone will think that this is an act of oppression.
This is an act of doom.
And Allah subhanaw taala has denied this they said this will not happen on the Day of Judgment. Well, I use Lamone and Akira well I use lamona Fertitta, Amara Buka with alarming Lila beat, then everyone will have his own reward on the day of judgment whether he is a mean a male or female, a black or white is I mean he speaks English or Arabic or Chinese it doesn't matter.
Every are all humans. All his servants are equal. In front of him subhanho wa Taala and all of them will
be paid the reward with full justice with his ultimate justice subhanho wa taala.
Now, if this same king gives you any expensive gifts, from his own money, not from the treasury of the state, from his own money, he gives expensive gifts to some of his people, and then he doesn't give the other people.
No one will think that this is an act of repression. It's his money, right? He's a free.
He decided to give some of his people some gifts. That is his freedom. And it's his money he's giving from his own pocket, because he owns this money. Allah subhanaw taala owns this universe. And that's why Allah subhanaw taala said in in the Quran workbook leukemia share with Dr. McCann Allah who will hear Subhan Allah He what Allah usually called. He said, Then you Lord create what He wills and choose us.
So someone is wealthy he would make someone wealthy someone pool someone healthy someone with a poor health conditions.
Someone intelligent, someone will have a level lower level of intelligence. I mean, Allah spare the life he helped me he should. So Allah subhanaw taala look, after he's the one who creates and he's the one who makes choices and chooses. This is what he's saying.
Exalted is Allah and high above what they associate with him. Subhan Allah He were to Allah emotionally cool.
In a different area in Surah Al Anbiya. He said, Let us know if Allah whom us alone
lives if Allah whom us alone, that he's not question about what he does, no one can question Allah subhanaw taala about his deeds and choices.
You cannot tell Allah subhanaw taala Why did you do that? I'm complaining about that. Not happy with this. I'm not happy with this, that or this or that or whatever money you think of you cannot do that.
So Allah subhanaw taala in this I said laughs Amaya fallible whom us alone is not question about what he does. But they will be questioned everyone will be questioned about his deeds and actions on the Day of Judgment. In order to Zuker off he said a homie xe Munna Rama Arabic, nano Casa Mina Boehner who may shatter him Phil hated dunya or a foreigner Baba home folk about Indrajit they attack with about a dozen Bogdan Supriya. Warahmatullah bigger Hierro me management. So the meaning of this idea, Allah subhanaw taala is making question here in the beginning, do they distribute the Mercy of your Lord, talking about people who are complaining about his decrease? Do they distribute
the Mercy of your Lord, it is we who have apportioned among them their livelihood, in the life of this world and have raised some of them above others
in degrees of Frank, that we may make use of one another for service, but the Mercy of your Lord is better than whatever they accumulate. So, this is very deep here, one here, basically Allah subhanaw taala is saying that he has given people different things, different abilities, different amounts of wealth, or Zack reserve Metallica, different you know, time to spend
different times to spend on this on this earth, some people will live or die at a younger age, some other people will still stay till the age of 90 or 100. So people will pass away I mean people have different Allah Subhana Allah has written you know, different things for for for His servants. But he's saying here that we we make it different everyone we have given him his his his risk, you know, the means of his livelihood. This is what Allah subhanaw taala Yeah, this is how Allah subhanaw taala has divided his risk between his people. Now, there is something important here, if Allah subhanaw taala I want you to think about this if Allah subhanaw taala has given all people the same
amount of wealth
and get an if he has if he has given them the same
level of intelligence,
then life will cease to exist the way it is nowadays. And there will be no point of testing
if everyone is wealthy,
okay, so no one will decide to study hard to become a doctor or to become a professional or to do things to try to do things for for the sake of humanity to benefit himself and benefit the rest of people. Just right
Think about it think about this the other way because when people when they complain about the decrease of Allah subhanaw taala he said Why me why he has given so and so, so much money but I don't have enough money.
Now if everyone is wealthy everyone is healthy everyone is as the same isn't I mean people might might complain, some people might complain about the color of their skin, or the color of their eyes or their height or whatever, whatever Emily people complain about, feels resentment about many things right.
But if Allah subhanaw taala has created people with the same it has given everyone the same thing,
life will be boring.
There will be no point of testing people no one will be tested. Because when they are poor, they are tested with poverty, right? With lack of resources, when they are rich, they are tested by you know the same walls that they are given. It is a test for self for them. Those who are given wealth, that's why last credit Allah said when a blue can be shared, we will highly fitna uncertain Gambia and we test you with shutter with even and with goodness, as a trials as a trial with Elena towards your own, and to us will be your final destination.
So here in this ayah he said yes, we have Allah subhanaw taala has not given everyone the same thing. But he's saying at the end what I met Rob big hydro me manage my own that is the conclusion. The Mercy of Allah is better than whatever they accumulate in this life people will compete in this life will try to accumulate more will try to do things right. But Allah Subhana Allah is saying at the end, Rama to rob Baker hiring me management on
the the AF era in a different area. He said, When Matera duniya Khalil The pleasure is of this dunya is is something very little is little
calmer material. duniya Khalid will ask era to hire only Manny taco and the Day of Judgment oral AF era the Hereafter is better for those who have Taco.
Willa la Munna or Willa to La Munna Fertitta.
So, the second point Yeah, one we need to know that Allah subhanaw taala is a Rahman Rahim This is how he introduced himself to his servant in Surah Al Fatiha if you read surah infatti Hubbs Malerman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Rahmani Raheem, these are Allah Subhana. Allah has many names and attributes, but he decided to introduce himself to his servant through these two beautiful names are mana Rahim, the Most Merciful and the Most Gracious, he could have used other names in Surah Al Fatiha so what is the Fatiha is the opening of the Quran. Right and it is the first Surah when we open the Quran, we read it, it is the fourth the first Surah we read when we open the Quran, that we
are supposed to recite it on a daily basis in our salad more than 70 times. So when we know sort of the Fatiha will have a great wealth of knowledge about Allah subhanaw taala we know that the SR, the we understand if we taste that we know the knowledge that is in surah Al Fatiha, we will have a good idea about our Creator and Maker subhanho wa taala. So he decided Subhana wa Taala to introduce himself to his servants through these two names. He's the Most Merciful the Most Gracious are Rahman Rahim
Allah so Allah Salam described his Rama in different ways, in other beautiful ways. In one of the Hadith that was narrated by Omar Raha, for the Allahu Anhu. He said some prisoners of war, were brought in front of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and there was a woman who was looking for someone in the crowd. And suddenly she found her child. So she took him she she placed him within her arms embraced him, and she started circling him or feeding him. Then as soon as I saw him, looked at his companion, some of his companions, and he said, The Nona had he thought he hadn't wanted to have it now do you think that this woman will throw her child in fire? They said
never or messenger of Allah, it will never happen any mother would throw her child in the fire. So Rasul Allah has actually made a very important statement very interesting statement about the Wrath of Allah. He said, Allah is more merciful, Allah subhanaw taala is more merciful to His servants
than this woman to her child is more merciful to His servants than this woman to her child.
And in a different Hadith in Bukhari Muslim this one is found in by Muslim the second one is found in Bukhari Muslim to the salah salem said that Allah subhanaw taala has divided his
Rama into 100 parts 100 parts, and he has sent down to this universe only one part of the earth. One part in all the Rama the mercy that you see happening nowadays between mothers and their children, between, you know even within the world of the animals within the world of humans. You see this Rama and this shift that is taking place between humans and between animals. It's only one part from the Rama from from one from 100 parts, and he has saved for His servants, how many 99 parts of his Rama for the day of judgment, and he will show his Rama to His servants on the Day of Judgment SubhanaHu Aton. So when we know about these things, the automatic end automatically we have to have what is
called a husband of vanilla, thinking well of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's why in the hadith of God you see in the Hadith and codici, Allah subhanaw taala said
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa our Hadith that in familiar we are not be subhanho wa Taala and are in the Verni as the bee
I am to my servant as he thinks of me. So if you think good, if you have a good opinion about Allah subhanaw taala then Allah subhanaw taala will treat you with goodness, you will find this goodness if you have a bad opinion as a person if you have a bad opinion about Allah subhanaw taala then this is what you find.
So as Muslims, we are supposed to have hospitals Donnie Billa, thinking well of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. That's where Salah salem said Leah Moulton hudco Illa, who are your sin have done better. And now none of you should die, except in a state of thinking well, if his Lord, so at the time of death, the person would think about his sins right? At the time of death, he would think about his sins. But He said the odema He should think also about the Mercy of Allah. And he should have more hope in the Mercy of Allah. He shouldn't rely on his deeds on his good deeds. It shouldn't, you know, start thinking about his Oh, he did this and this and that and everything will be fine. You
don't rely on your deeds on your good deeds, because you will enter to Jannah you will be saved on the Day of Judgment, by the Rama with Rama of Allah, with Rama with the Mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. Our deeds are nothing in this dunya actually, he's the one who gave us supporting till 50 He's the one who helped us to perform these deeds. If it was not for his help, for his trophy for his Rama for his blessings, we wouldn't be able to perform anything in this dunya so at the time of death, the ruler, Maddy said, we should have more, we should think well of Allah subhanaw taala and have personal non biller and only personal bombilla. But at the same time, we should fear our sins.
And we have these two things combined together, then hopefully we will we'll be happy when we meet our Lord. Will Allahu Taala alum. So the matter? Yeah, one of having a good opinion about Allah subhanaw taala is something that is important. And if we don't understand, if we don't understand few things that are happening in this world, I mean, questions will come to our minds. Shaitan is very active into you know,
misleading people from the right path, right, and he will try his best to throw Shubho hat in our minds and hearts. She will hurt Yanni something and clear matters and clear questions about Allah subhanaw taala about his justice, about things that are happening in this universe. If these things happen, and they come across any cross our minds, then we know you need to go back to the book of Allah subhanaw taala and we'll find the answers. We have no doubt that this book is from Allah subhanaw taala that Muhammad wa salam did not write the book. It is a way it is a divine guidance that Allah Subhana Allah sent to humanity. And it is it was sent for the purpose of guiding human to
the right path, the right path that will take them at the end to gender. The way of salvation is through the book of Allah subhanaw taala and the Sunnah of His Messenger, then we go back to the book of Allah subhanaw taala, and many things will be solved, many issues will be solved in our minds. And if we add instead, as I said, I should repeat myself I'm trying to repeat myself, if you don't understand something, then we refer the knowledge of these things to Allah subhanaw taala because our knowledge is limited. Our imagination is limited. Our Qudra is limited to understand things Allah subhanaw taala is a witness over everything. He knows what is happening now what
happened before the details of every single event in this universe. We don't have these powers to understand what happened before. We don't know every single detail
All our we have method on the subject of history. As humans, we study history. But we always have doubt about history because we have doubt about the reliability of the sources, you know. So if you talk about any event that took place in the past, you will never talk about it with absolute confidence, right? Because you will always have doubt about those who wrote this history, those who, you know, those who conveyed, you know, those who provided information to us about those event.
The future is obvious. We don't know what will happen tomorrow. We don't know what will happen after tomorrow. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has his knowledge has encompassed all these things. He knows the details of what happened in the past. He knows what is happening now in every corner of this universe, and he knows what will happen in the future. And that's why we can Allahu Allah coalition in Shahida. So he's a witness over every single thing. So how can you compare your knowledge and your understanding with his knowledge, Subhana Hutan it will never happen, it will never happen. So that's why as Muslims, if we want to save ourselves from this feelings, these feelings about the
justice of Allah subhanaw taala, about his justice Allah della Leela here, when we have to refer when we and we don't, in the case, we don't understand something, there are things that are that are in the Quran, we don't understand them.
And we wait, maybe Allah Subhana Allah will give us some knowledge about them. Let's pray to Allah has given us some information. I don't want to mention some of them. But I am myself when I read the Quran, there are things that I don't understand. But I hope that one day Allah Subhana Allah will bless me with knowledge and, and help me to understand a few things that
I did not understand.
Because I accuse my limited knowledge. I accuse my shortcomings I don't accuse Allah subhanaw taala of including false information in the Quran.
But now, you know, the the new discoveries in the ecology of hamdulillah here and when you read, you read the only what's going on now the new discoveries in science, there is nothing that goes against what Allah Subhana Allah said in the Quran,
nothing whatsoever. And you know, people are talking, they go to the internet and you see any non Muslims trying to find you know, contradictions in the book of Allah subhanaw taala you know, you go to this website, don't go to them, but those who websites are trying to answer Islam answering Islam in and try to find these things in the Quran. But you know, they always come with come up with silly things, and it's easy for many students of knowledge to refute their claims. So my point is, we should have confidence about the book of Allah subhanaw taala confidence about the sunnah of our messengers, the authentic sunnah of our messenger sallallahu alayhi salam, if something does not
click very well, does not sit very well in our minds. Then we refer the knowledge of these things to Allah subhanaw taala and we try to ask Allah subhanaw taala we try we ask Allah subhanaw taala to increase our knowledge, Allah Miranda Vemma limp tena where I live nearby and feronia was IDNA anima. You will ask Allah Subhana Allah to increase our knowledge so we have a better understanding of our deen and we empower will be able to you need to have a better relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala she has a como lo Heron Oba co Lo Fi comm
