Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala nabina Muhammad wa

00:00:27--> 00:00:28

00:00:30--> 00:01:00

We continue and Hola, hola, de la ilaha illa who are Rahmani Raheem and Maluku Salah Mohammed Rashid capital Khalid from Barrie. saguru farofa Allah Havas, Apple Fatah even Javier Alberto hospital Dr. Mirza Mozilla Samuel DOS, evil hacker.

Have you

00:01:04--> 00:01:04

be

00:01:05--> 00:01:29

a lolly you Kevin? And have you done Makita Cebu jelly? Allah Cebu jelly Allah, Allah Cebu jelly al Karim rakibul Mooji Allah Saad hakimullah dude. And Hakeem al masjidul by to shahidullah Hakuna Joaquin and having your Mateen. So last week, we got to Al Haku. Team

00:01:31--> 00:01:48

at the last name that we did was a hub. This week we're going to start from Albuquerque. Then we've got an AVI Alma teen and Willie al Hamid almasi and so on. So starting with the name, Albuquerque, of Allah azza wa jal.

00:01:50--> 00:02:05

His Name of Allah azza wa jal means the one who is the best to depend upon. So in all our affairs, we put our trust in Allah. And Allah has said in several places of the Holy Quran in many, many places, he has said that the believers put their trust in Allah. Now what is important here is that

00:02:07--> 00:02:53

in all the different aspects of belief in all the different aspects of belief and believers, there are a few things Allah has said for the believers to do one of them that has been repeated again and again in the Holy Quran. One of them is taqwa. Allah wants believers to have Taqwa in Allah herman cain and so analyze with those who have who have Taqwa. And one another one is patience. And another one is tubbercurry. Another one is the dependence on Allah azza wa jal and believe it putting his full trust in Allah. Now when we say full trust in Allah, it means full trust and the the part where we where we suffer or the part where we find a deficiency is when the believer doesn't put his full

00:02:53--> 00:03:02

trust in Allah and we have a deficiency in our trust. That's when Allah so just help is also not coming towards us because we haven't put our full trust in Him.

00:03:03--> 00:03:07

Now alburquerque means that he is going to do everything Allah says

00:03:10--> 00:03:53

in Surah to tala, whoever will depend upon Allah, He is enough, totally enough, there is no need for anything else. So this is one of the names that tells us, for example, when we have had, you know, the debate about the Islam line album, which one is the Greatest Name of Allah, the Greatest Name of Allah is the one where a person puts his full trust in Allah and says that name. As soon as we put the full trust in Allah and we call Allah with that name, that is the greatest trust in Allah azza wa jal, and that that will be the greatest name and because of which Allah Allah, Allah will answer our call, Allah will also see Allah will also give us protection if you seek protection from him.

00:03:53--> 00:03:55

Now he said in the Holy Quran

00:03:56--> 00:04:40

Surah Nisa I number 81. Whatever Allah Allah wa kafa biLlahi Akilah you depend upon Allah and Allah is enough for you as a person, as a being allies enough as a being who will look after all your affairs, allies enough as a being who who will govern your affairs, who will look after your affairs who will be enough to put your trust in, you do not need to turn to anyone else for the trust. Now, here there's one other side to that. The believer, of course, we put our trust in Allah. But we also have to take up the means in this world. So for example, Rasulullah sallallahu Iseman himself, he had his trust in Allah helping him in the Battle of butter, but he also aligned the people in the

00:04:40--> 00:04:56

Battle of butter. He didn't just depend on Allah and selke Allah will give us victory on this battleground. He gave them instructions he gave them their arms he gave them the weapon Rio he told them how to use the weaponry and he said that you will first throw your

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

you'll first throw your spear

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

Follow your arrows and then the next one is when they get very close, then that's the time when you will actually use your swords. And those of you who don't have your sword you will use this and so he aligned them in into lines and so on. This is known as using the means this is as bad. So as bad and tawakkol they both go together using the means in this world and then depending upon God, if one is abandoned, then we don't get the full balance of this Deen. Allah azza wa jal has told us to use both of them. That's what Allah says, Yeah, you had Yeah, you will Lavina Avenue oh you who believe. And Allah will tell us for example, what I do, you make preparation must adopt him in whichever way

00:05:44--> 00:06:21

you got any prepper any, any force, any power, you will use that force you will use that power for your enemies. And then Allah says after that final husavik Allah, Allah is enough for you. So on the one hand, the law says you use every single means you have and then Allah says Allah is enough for you. So what does that mean? That means that you must use your means and then you depend upon Allah is not that we don't use any means that we just just just say Allah, Allah helped me Allah helped me. And this was one example in vanilla butter. Another example is the Rasulullah sallallahu Monica who used to get ill, he used to call for the doctor, though he had his full trust in Allah, he would

00:06:21--> 00:06:38

call for the doctor. So he would take his medicine, and then he would also depend upon Allah azza wa jal, but it's that is not that he is depending upon the medicine is depending on Allah. But since Allah has told us to take up the means we take up the means. It's a hobby came to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam.

00:06:39--> 00:07:10

And he said he was a Bedouin, and he said, messenger of Allah, do I tie my camel first? And then depend depend upon Allah? Or do I depend upon Allah? And then time accommo or do I just depend upon Allah basically, what do I do? So prophets, Allah Hardison said, Yeah, kill me lack. Sumatra, call Allah. He said, first you tie your camel, if you try it properly, and then you trust a law to protect you from from that. What does that mean is that you don't leave your money out in the open and read adequacy.

00:07:11--> 00:07:34

We don't read, we don't leave it in the open and read adequacy, we hide it first, you put it in a safe, we'll put in a pocket First, we'll pull it out of people's sight. Or we'll try and protect it by locking it up in whichever way we lock it up. And then we depend upon Allah subhanaw taala. And that is, that is how the believer has historical or his dependence upon Allah azza wa jal.

00:07:35--> 00:08:05

Now, the one who does not do this, for example, we've got certain people who will just depend upon Allah do i is enough. That is not right. You could just draw is needed. But with graph and the tawakkol. And the dependence, we've got a vanilla region, we need to also have the means. So you got to make some physical means on the grounds to whatever you're making draw for. And others, they make the means but they don't have the full trust in Allah, they have that they have the tawakkol in the means. This is a very big mistake Muslims make.

00:08:06--> 00:08:23

I've got the means. So for example, I've prepared that I want to, you know, take on my enemy I prepared, I made preparation for it. But my dependence, my heart is based upon my means. So I've got people with me,

00:08:24--> 00:08:46

I've got my ASVAB I've got my means I've got my things that I can use. And my heart is saying, I've got these people My mind is where my things are, my mind is where my appraisal means my means in this world. This is not our current law. This is our kulanu means Allah never said tawakkol Allah

00:08:48--> 00:09:10

is a topical Allah law, you make your dependent upon Allah. So this is where a lot of Muslims need to understand this point. Because it happens in many different areas of life. Especially when it comes to even someone who's long term sick or someone who's just sick. What do they do, they will if they have the tawakkol on the, on the

00:09:11--> 00:09:42

on the means like their medicine, they think I've got a doctor, I've got a nurse here, I've got money in my bank to take out extra health insurance I've got or I'm going to take out, you know, extra, you know, consultancy by different doctors, and that's going to help me and I've got the medicines, I've got the prescriptions, I've got the hour the extra, you know, natural things that I'm going to take, I've got the exercise that I'm gonna do. So the whole dependence is upon all these means.

00:09:44--> 00:09:58

And then they want to depend upon Allah and mix it with these or they don't want to think about a line that wait and this is totally wrong. What should happen is yes, I've got my doctor. That's something Allah has told me to do, but he's told me not to put my trust in.

00:09:59--> 00:09:59

I've got my

00:10:00--> 00:10:07

Nurse, I've got the medicine but I don't put any trust in the medicine. There's no trust in the medicine. Yes, I have to take the medicine.

00:10:08--> 00:10:57

But I don't trust the medicine to to work. I trust a lot to make the medicine work. I trust a lot to make the doctor do the best thing for me. I trust Allah to make the people around me see what was wrong with me, and therefore help me I trust Allah to guide me, I trust Allah to guide them, I trust Allah to make sure that the means I've got in my bank will be held at the right time, Allah will make me use that money, so that I can use it to help myself that is dependent upon Allah. So Allah comes first. This is tawakkol Allah Allah, but if a person thinks means and then Allah means and then Allah is wrong. So for example, any person who's a general of an army, who will tell you tell

00:10:57--> 00:11:25

you that there is no way you can win anything outside there, unless you have got Allah azzawajal that will help you there is there are certain points, that is no way you can make any progress whatsoever, sometimes you come to a complete dead end. And the only one that can help is Alonzo gel. And we know even when it's not the dead end, see what the thing is, most people will actually make their full trust in Allah when they see nothing but Allah.

00:11:27--> 00:12:09

You know, like a man who's used, let's say, for example, a man he's he's had the doctor. So the doctor has helped him until the doctors like getting a bit fed up of doctors. Now, given all these prescriptions, he sent him to the best, you know, best authorities in the field. And even they're sort of saying, Well, you know, there's nothing else we can do. Mr. Ahmed, we are you know, we'd like to just tell you to start, you know, praying to God, or, you know, you haven't got much time left or something like that. And his dad sees that all these medicines are not working at this point, of course, the person is going to just see who Allah has no one else to see. So it's only

00:12:09--> 00:12:47

Allah. Now, when I when a general of an army or someone, an army will come to a dead end, they've tried everything, they completely trapped, all the resources are not making any use whatsoever. And they're in the corner, who they're gonna see they're gonna see only Allah. And Allah said that the Holy Quran, even the machine, those who assigned partners with Allah, when they get stuck on the on the boat in the middle or the ship in the middle of the ocean, and when the storms around in the seas are surging, and they and the clouds are very dark upon their heads and the winds are blowing very severely and the ship is being tossed from one side to another side and the rains are coming

00:12:47--> 00:13:31

down. And now, wherever they look, they see death. At that time, even the mushrik The one who has 360 idols, that time he abandons 359 or he abandons all of them. And he says only Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Subhan Allah Quran several times, he said, even they, when they get to that point, they only see me. I'm the only one who can help. But that time, Allah says, I help anyone who sees nothing but Allah, and they sincerely call Allah Allah will help them whether even if it's appreciate, Allah said, and I'll help you. But the whole point is the believer shouldn't wait till the moment comes, that we can't see anything else. And the only thing we can see is Allah, then we

00:13:31--> 00:13:40

call Allah alone. And we have no regard of the means whatsoever on the earth. Now Allah said, when you're your first step,

00:13:41--> 00:13:59

and you've got your means in front of you, and you're going to use your means, at that point, see nothing but me use your means, but see nothing but me. So I've got my medicine. And my name is I'm gonna have to say Bismillah and my, my whole attention is to Allah.

00:14:00--> 00:14:46

I've got a crisis and I'm trying to write letters to solve this crisis out. I'm trying to you know, lobby do some whatever I'm going to do, but the whole point is not on the lobbying is not on to the people is not on the demonstrations is not on the letters is not on the MPs is not on anyone else. I'm going to use all of that. But it's on Allah. Only Allah has the Chua. He has the power to make any of these means work. Because if Allah wants to, and we know that very clearly, if Allah wants to, he can make a sharp knife blunt in the case of Ibrahim in his mind, if he wants to, he can make fire into something cool. In the case of Ibrahim alayhis salam again in the fire, if Allah wants to,

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

he can turn the he can turn water into pathways, just like in the case of musallam If Allah wants to, he can keep a man in the belly of a whale and not die.

00:15:00--> 00:15:36

Just him and bring him out completely alive. Like in the case of universalism, if Allah wants to, he can make a person in the midst of 1000s of people trying to kill him, just lift him up and make him disappear and make somebody else look like him. And he gets, he gets crucified in the case of a silence around his house and was lifted in the middle of a crowd, and no one could do anything. No one even knew where he was. And they found another man similar like him, and they did whatever they wanted to do with him. So if Allah wants to in any in the middle of anything, he can do what he wants. But the whole point is that we as believers must remember that while Allah if Allah token

00:15:36--> 00:16:26

known upon Allah, do all the believers have their full trust. And this trust is something which does not diminish over time. Over time, as the believer gets stronger with his Eman, his trust in Allah gets stronger. So if a believer finds that the trust is not fully there, then it means that the man is weak. If trust is weak in Allah, and the trust is more in the means of this well, then it means that it shows that our belief is weak, our enon is weak. When a man is strong, the trust in the light is strong. The law said in Surah, Furqan and number 58, whatever Kerala Isla de la mo to Saudi Arabia handy depend upon the one who's ever living never to die.

00:16:27--> 00:17:00

See, this is one thing we learn from all the other means Why shouldn't I trust anything else? Because everything else has got an end. Its power is limited. Its power is going to end at some point. The only only one only that only being that has got no limit to his power. is Allah azza wa jal and that's why we put our trust in Allah and he's saying that I'm ever living. So because if you think about it, okay, you put your trust in anything in this world, the moment death comes.

00:17:01--> 00:17:04

Who are we going to depend upon? Who

00:17:05--> 00:17:08

Allah azza wa jal from there onwards, there's nothing else left.

00:17:09--> 00:17:28

Just comes, we only see Allah grave comes, we can't depend on anyone except for Allah. They have Jasmine comes, you can't depend on anyone except for Allah going to Jana, you can't depend on anyone else except for Allah. So Allah is the only one that his

00:17:29--> 00:18:07

his being and his schoolwork and his and his power and his strength will be seen eventually, by everyone. But it will it will only be those who are true believers who will accept that while in this world that they only see anything they see nothing except for Lana is a big, big stage of belief. Now this thing i'm saying is a big stage, I believe, if I believe in this world can stay in a way that they see not not the normal believers. They're not like people running away to the jungles. They're not people who are leaving abandon this whole world. They're not people who are saying, Well, you know, I'm not going to talk to people. I'm not going to sit, I'm not going to do

00:18:07--> 00:18:48

this with people. It's a waste of time now. They're engaging with people now as they're engaging with people they know that Allah azza wa jal, he is the only one that they can trust. They are making a conversation with someone they make in a meeting with someone and they're saying, Yeah, let's do this. Does that allow higher salary would you for this year, they made the plan. But again, that trusted fully in Allah. They've gone ahead and they're going to execute the plans that made plans and they're going to execute these plans right now. Trust is in Allah azza wa jal, if any, every single point we can do this. This is to do with Kemal Eman. This is to do with a great height

00:18:49--> 00:19:01

and perfection of Eman. If I believe we can do this, most believers are if you know, on a scale of one to 100 you will find a lot of people who've only got their trust in God between one to 10

00:19:02--> 00:19:35

a lot of people who've got the belief in Allah the belief in Allah they claim and everyone claims this on here is 100%. Now there are believers there's no doubt in that. But the the trust in Allah if it's from one to 100 100, the maximum one being the lowest right part of that trust. Most believe it just like most believers if you ask them truly and honestly how much full concentration that they have in their Salah. Most believers will tell you between one to 10 one to 10%

00:19:36--> 00:20:00

Most believers if they're just going into cruise mode, you know cruise control mode, in Salah you just doing a salah and you just like let it flow. So they will only have one to 10% the same way as most believers in the power cooling Allah will have one to 10% Now you will get some who will be up to 35% you will get some up to like 50% and you will get some that will be above

00:20:00--> 00:20:23

And some that will actually be 90 to about 100. Now, when you get to the 100 level those people's hand a lot the trust is in Allah so much that if somebody comes to them and imagine somebody comes to you, and they say to you how great you are, they say Masha Allah, you are so you just done this. And you done that in chief, these new chief that what happens to normal person

00:20:25--> 00:20:26

when I was an old person

00:20:27--> 00:20:29

you got into your vanity, right? Like,

00:20:30--> 00:20:42

even if you're not showing it inside, there is happiness that I'm getting and receiving all of this. So you're happy, your whole state is not happier. Now, another person comes to you, and says,

00:20:43--> 00:21:17

You, this and that. And you you you downtrodden whatever, a little rotten little whatever, whatever wrapped in this bla bla bla and so he's giving you, he's actually putting you down, and he's disgracing you, he's absolutely displacing you, or happens to know a person, you feel bad inside, right? You feel like you feel like you want to like say another 100 words to him, that will match his 10 words that he said to you. So that happens now, this is a believer, whose

00:21:18--> 00:21:22

tawakkol Allah is not full.

00:21:23--> 00:21:38

Why? Because Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, You should know that even if the whole world came together, even if the whole world came together to benefit you, they will not be able to benefit you unless

00:21:39--> 00:21:49

allowance benefits you. So if this person is saying all these good things to him, and he knows that he sees now this is this is really good. This is benefiting me.

00:21:51--> 00:22:33

This praise has had an effect on him. He's takakura law is not fully there. Because the only one that can benefit is Allah The only one that can give him a high status Allah, the only one if he drops himself in front of his lost something is a lot Not in front of people. So if somebody blames him, somebody embarrasses him, somebody shames him, and he feels bad, shouldn't feel bad. Because if I if I'm not bad in the sight of Allah, then my dependence upon God is fine. I'm completely fine because it's only Allah in front of whom I can lose. My status is only a line from who I can gain a status. I can't gain status in front of any any of these people. I can't lose my status in front of

00:22:33--> 00:22:38

any of these people, no matter how much they praise me, no matter how much they blame me.

00:22:39--> 00:22:49

Is that clear? Yep. This is the Quran says believe that true believer, you will see them when you praise them or you blame them. No effect. If you blame them.

00:22:51--> 00:22:57

Either they'll stay quiet or they move on. Or they will say that you probably right.

00:22:58--> 00:23:21

And if I mean if he's totally unworthy, of course they're going to defend themselves but if he's just something they can brush aside they will brush aside and if he prays then they will not want it and even if they do get it they will not be any different inside here because they know that the praise that if Allah The Shaku The one who appreciates things is going to appreciate the decent laughs enough so this is the name of overkill.

00:23:23--> 00:23:24

The next one I'll copy

00:23:26--> 00:23:33

allows others to to name Xia alchemy you'll Mateen alcovy Alma teen

00:23:34--> 00:24:27

alchemy has been in this has been used in the Holocron several times al Mateen has been used only one time. Now both of them have very similar meaning. alcovy means strong, very strong. The old strong Alma teen means strong as well. But alcovy means for Allah Allah being alchemy means that he is powerful to do anything. And I'll Mateen means he is unbreakable. his power and his way is unbreakable. So now first alchemy, alchemy Institute hood. And number 66. Allah says Allah, Allah says, Allah is the one who is all strong allies, the one who is mighty, he has also said and suited to that he has done quwata Mateen Allah is all strong and also he is unbreakable in anything that he

00:24:27--> 00:24:28

wants to do.

00:24:29--> 00:24:43

And he has used this word in various places of the Holy Quran. And he's also told us to have another the either I said a little earlier ago, so that will unfurl and number 60. Will I doula who must

00:24:44--> 00:24:59

gather every single every kuwa every power you have now Alcoa, he is the color he gives us. kuwa he gives us power. Allah has said in the Holy Quran, Allah Holla Holla Holla cumin Dorf, so medalla invited orphan over Allah

00:25:00--> 00:25:24

He's the one who has created you in weakness. And after that weakness, he gives you the power. So any power I've received was the power, the power of my muscles, the power of my, my walking the power of my hearing, the power of my seeing the power of my thinking, the power of for me to be a man or a woman or whatever, to be able to influence others to have any influence in this world, all aku Allah says, I gave it to you so much, I mean by the quwata. And

00:25:25--> 00:26:04

then after that power, I then take you back to weakness. So old age when my muscles are not the same old age and my brain is not the same the memories of the same old age when my eyesight is not the same. My hearing is not the same. And my you know, there's feeble and weakness in my body, all of that has been given to me by Allah azza wa jal. So he takes us through this cycle. So we've got a point where Allah gives us kuwa, which is the middle part of our life, and in two ends of our life, Allah made us dive and he's made us weak. Allah when he says alchemy, he has no weakness besides him. So he didn't start off with weakness and grew his power. No, he's always been powerful and

00:26:04--> 00:26:05

that's what makes him alchemy.

00:26:06--> 00:26:18

The other thing is, when I had when, when Ahmad they said they tried to show their kuwa and their power such that they tried to say and they said to save the NA,

00:26:19--> 00:26:21

who de la sala, what did they say?

00:26:22--> 00:26:58

They said Manisha domina Pooja, who is more powerful than us, because they will join Sundays to carve the houses from mountains and so on. Our amuro Allah Allah, Allah, Masha, Allah did not see that the one who must have created them he has to be more powerful than them. Isn't that logical? So how can they make this this claim that who is more powerful than us? So in the end, Allah azza wa jal, he showed his, his kuwa he showed his strength onto these people, when he sent his allies God many armies. Allah armies

00:26:59--> 00:27:24

are the ants. Allah army is the little particles of sand. Allah army is the raindrops from the sky. Alice army is the mosquitos, Allah's army or the fleas and bugs. Alice army or the Locust army is you know, small, little, small, small few bacteria inside the body, the salami.

00:27:26--> 00:27:27

Allah has many bigger armies.

00:27:29--> 00:27:42

Allah has many bigger Allah has the wind, Allah has the tsunami, Allah has the earthquakes Allah has all of these are big ones. But the little ones, Allah army is the you know, is small bacteria inside the body.

00:27:43--> 00:28:10

Smallest bacteria that's Allah's army, he can just let it loose. And all your defense in your body can't stop it from killing you, as well as army. Many diseases in the earth is Allah's army, Allah azza wa jal, he can use whatever he wants at any time he wants, and these are his arms. So what did Allah azzawajal do? He sent one of his armies onto the coal mine, he sent his wind and his wind blew for seven whole nights.

00:28:11--> 00:28:49

And seven whole nights and eight whole days. It blew and Swan Elian Aviv Allah showed Who is the one who is who is the one who is who is all powerful because when he finished with them, Allah said their limbs, their limbs, these are giants, their limbs were left scattered over the whole land. So he found arms here, legs here, have a probably Shin here, a body the head there of all these different giants, a lot took them Allah spun the wind, it was a it was a storm, as a hurricane is spun them and he took he lifted these giants up.

00:28:50--> 00:29:29

When he lifted them up, imagine they were taken in the tornado, he lifted them up. And what Allah did is he bought the tornado back onto the ground and even smack with all the tornado, the tornado lifted them up and then smack onto the ground. Imagine what Allah did to them. So there will be a day when they will reveal their bodies. Allah will show their bodies one day, they will dig into these, you know, somewhere some archaeologists gonna find somewhere, they're gonna find a big head here. They're gonna find a few, maybe a couple of miles away a few a couple of miles, they're gonna find an arm here, and they'll find a massive body here. One day, Allah will reveal this. That will

00:29:29--> 00:29:39

be the case. So this is Allah showing his school. Now as I said just before a little while ago, Allah says in Surah Baqarah number 165. Voila, we are Latina wala

00:29:41--> 00:29:52

quwata illa Eugenia, if only the people who are oppressing they would see the time they will see what the other one the punishment, Allah at that time they will see all power belongs to Allah.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

Now Subhan Allah Allah the right now a lot of people are fooled they see power before

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

longing to different authorities.

00:30:03--> 00:30:25

You know, the real believer, he only sees Allah, Allah has given the power to anyone who wants us. For us, for example, these governments, the real believer sees no government has any power. The real believe that this is Look, if you think about it, how did this hour of the law? How did they go to people like us to

00:30:27--> 00:30:28

these were

00:30:29--> 00:30:35

empires that were bigger than any Empire on this earth today. Bigger than America.

00:30:36--> 00:30:59

The whole force of America wouldn't be you know, in terms of the the match. I know, today, you've got different sophisticated weaponry. And we've got, you know, different ways of but let's just take if you were to make a match between them, and between the Persian army and the Persian Empire, there is no way you could say that the Persian army falls short of what America is.

00:31:00--> 00:31:07

They had one small wing of an army was 100,000 men

00:31:08--> 00:31:32

on the land ready for war at any time. So they had at times, they had 100,000 men ready in Herat, Afghanistan, that 100,000 ready in Sham, which is Syria, that 100,000 ready in the Balkan paths, they had 100,000 ready in different paths, these were small wings, if they wanted, they could bring an army of 500,000.

00:31:34--> 00:31:41

Half a million. And these are armies, which they're feeding, they're preparing that not only that is in the town of Satan or

00:31:42--> 00:31:45

the Persians, they had elephants.

00:31:46--> 00:32:28

These elephants were trained for war. these are these are not, you know, these are not small things we're saying here, the Arab they didn't know how to win these, how to beat this, this. So if you read the, if you read the study from the history, in the time of say, the normal hot tub, and the Battle of the kharsia and suhaila, they were they were being crushed by the elephants that they didn't, they weren't able to take on these elephants. But Allah azza wa jal, and then he gave the victory. But what I will say to you is these armies, they had the amount of gold and silver merchandise the Kings had super Han Allah, they could buy countries, just like what America is

00:32:28--> 00:32:55

today. But America today is in large debt, you know, its infrastructure is is very weak. But you know, on the outside is got all these, you know, armies all over the world. But if you look at the coup, Allah azza wa jal gave to some of these armies who had Allah and today Look, if America wants to talk to you, it has to do secretly, it's not going to I mean, the only thing they've got is Guantanamo Bay. And even then, it's not open open torture, it's secret torture.

00:32:57--> 00:33:05

If they want to torture you though, to to secretly, there's so many laws and rights and so on. Those days, they didn't need an excuse.

00:33:07--> 00:33:21

to torture you. The King could one day get up and call two men and say, Come in, kill him in front of all his coaches. Everyone, everyone, capote, no word.

00:33:23--> 00:33:50

This is what Nambu did in with the Roma Salaam. in Bremen, as Sam said, you know, he said, Robbie Levy, you he will meet my load, he gives life and he gives this, you know, what number did Number says, I give life and I give that so now we would call two people. He called two prisoners. He said, This prisoner has set him free. So they set him free. He was that prisoner bring him here killed him. He said, Look, I give life. I gave life to the first one. And I killed the second one.

00:33:52--> 00:34:12

This is open. It's like what you do? I'm the king or do I do as I please? This is how they were. Imagine you've got an army. That is 500,000, which is one base. They've got another 100,000 100,000 100,000 hunters. And they've got empires and you know, they've got countries and countries and countries and this one Empire. Now what did what did?

00:34:14--> 00:34:36

One of the Sahaba of the alarm, what did he do? He did this imagine a he's walking soheila this Mira the alojado when he came to Jerusalem, he came here to conceal the king and tell him that you gotta accept Islam. Otherwise, if you don't accept Islam, then it's going to be tomorrow. Yeah. Now when he went, he went

00:34:37--> 00:34:43

on his, you know, he didn't go with it with a flashy horse. Yep. He went on a donkey.

00:34:45--> 00:35:00

And when he went he was a donkey when he went, they told him to, you know, get off and I will lose these guys ambassadors come is no I'm not getting off. He walked and all these soldiers lined up. I know what they used to do those days. They used to

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

lined up. And

00:35:03--> 00:35:29

they used to be on both sides with their souls, the spears, the whole full armor, the gear, and they used to be hundreds and hundreds of them lined up on both sides. And they would mean make you feel so small, and they'll be on their horses and so on. So he came along, right. I think he must have probably had somebody else with him. But as he came along,

00:35:30--> 00:36:08

he walked in, looked at it, nothing affected him. It's not like, you know, he's looking at me thinking, like, Oh, look at the power of the vote. No, nothing at all, because he's saying who isn't allies, the Allies alpha. So he's walking, they told him to get off is a normal walking on mountain on my cicada. And then they told him finally to get out, get out, get off, because they had this wonderful red carpet are this wonderful carpet right? This carpet was from you know, the Persians had been known for making the carpet even till today. If you go to Iran, Iran is one of the places where you make the best copies in the world come from Iran. So you can imagine that made this for

00:36:08--> 00:36:12

the king. Right? So what did he do?

00:36:13--> 00:36:16

He superhard Allah as he was going, right?

00:36:18--> 00:36:36

To show them that he has no worthy of them. The first day he came in, gave normal Dharma first day came came normal down. And they laughed at him. So he went back, he came again and gave our laughter he came in the game that was not fair to him. I think it was when he gave our what it is. He put his sword down, you know, his sword is hanging down.

00:36:38--> 00:36:46

His sword is now hanging down and he's touching the carpet. And he pressed his sword down slightly. So as he's walking, he's ripping the carpet.

00:36:48--> 00:37:07

He's showing them that I don't care or you go here. I'm not interested in your new kingdom here. I've got no worth of it. So these are shocked. They go. Why is he doing this Arab Nomad, but he's talking as well in Allah so he comes up to him. And he says says to him clearly

00:37:09--> 00:37:09

that

00:37:10--> 00:37:16

Aslan, Tesla, you believe in Allah, you believe in Islam, he said, All of this will be used.

00:37:18--> 00:37:52

Your armies yours, your country is yours. You make all of them believe in Islam as yours. Now, you imagine his coming to is almost like somebody's going into the White House. Right? Honestly, is almost undergoing the White House and going right up to Obama and saying, You believe issues? Hopefully, you had it tomorrow, right? We will decide on the battlefield tomorrow. even imagine all the hundreds of armies watching them. So they thought okay, you they said you go and you find out. So when the war started Suhana law, it was a wall never seen before.

00:37:54--> 00:38:00

But you know what, within five days, they broke them. The Muslim broke them within five days.

00:38:01--> 00:38:46

So Rihanna light is one of the you know, historical battles in history. But what I want to say to you is that you can't do that. If the man is not 100% if a person does not see, Allah is the only powerful being and everything else has no power. If a person doesn't believe I'm talking about knowledge wise, look, everyone's got knowledge. Brothers and sisters are listening. So we all believe that we've got the knowledge our knowledge, says Allah is the only one that does everything, allies, these allies, that knowledge is there. There's no there's no point of knowledge. It's here. When they when that knowledge goes into the heart and the heart puts him to believe that Allah does

00:38:46--> 00:38:54

everything. That's when you can do this because you believe that know what they told you. They said to in certain certain battles, they said, you can kill me but you can't kill Islam.

00:38:56--> 00:39:23

You can kill me but you can kill Islam, you can kill me you kill a few Muslims, you've killed just a few Muslims, you can't kill Islam. Islam can be can be finished by yourself. And this is the power they had in their hearts that made them go in that in that direction. So this is, this is Anil quwata illa. Allah has every single power no one has greater power than Allah. Now Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam he has said in a hadith the Muslim,

00:39:26--> 00:39:26

Allah him.

00:39:28--> 00:39:41

He has said the strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer, or if he called in higher, but in each of the believers there is goodness. So Allah has praised the strong believer out of us,

00:39:42--> 00:39:45

as opposed to the weak believer out of us.

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

And the second name is Al Mateen, which is that is unbreakable. This is sort of valueact EIN number 58. You will find find that name. Now what this means is that when a law makes a plan or law will do something

00:40:00--> 00:40:19

There is no way you will be able to break it in any way. There's no ins and outs from it. Imagine I have diamond if I have diamond, you can't cut diamond unless you've got another sharp diamond. If you if there's no other if I've got the I've got the entire diamond of the earth and I make it into one piece, nothing in the earth can cut it finished.

00:40:20--> 00:40:38

It says sharp isn't the strongest thing. Allah azza wa jal is saying that he when he makes a plan, there is nothing that's going to go over. Because how can how can the last plan be overtaken when he knows every single possible move that the others can make? Allah knows that if they do this, he does that. If they do that he does this. If you do that, he does that if you do that.

00:40:41--> 00:41:20

And they're finished. Right? But if they don't do that, but they do this is the normal through a, which takes them to a point one, which take them to a point 1.1 whatever. If they don't do all of that they go through B if they go through be a lesson, okay? That could be point one if you got to be point 1.1 point two, right? And if you go to the other you've lost. So in every single way, Allah knows how they're going to lose, has got all the plans. So all he has to do is pick one of them and say, Okay, go down. This one. Don't want to have Aidan A, B, C, D, find pick F, so go through F whichever way they go, Allah knows how's it how he's going to overpower them, and they will have no

00:41:20--> 00:41:38

no way of coming over him. So this is Mateen which is mean, which means that there is no way that Allah azza wa jal, he will be broken in any of his plans when he executes his plans, and he does something so I'll probably you'll Mateen and the last name that we'll do for today

00:41:39--> 00:41:44

is actually the very last thing we'll do is Ali now, Ali

00:41:45--> 00:42:28

swannanoa this name Allahu Allah, you Latina Amano, Allahu wa Leela de Namur. If you look at Sora, Baccarat, and number 256 57 257, you'll find it allies, the guardian of the believers allies the close one of the believers. Now Allah azzawajal is close to the believers how when our actions are close to him, when we're doing the right thing I live close to us and he has said in a hadith of Bokhari and had scooty man either Lee and Adam to Bill Hara, whoever becomes close to me. If anyone picks on them, I my in I declare war against them. So basically if a seven becomes close to Allah and others other people are picking on the seven that allows origin says I declare war against all

00:42:28--> 00:42:29

the people.

00:42:31--> 00:43:06

And he says how does a person become close to me allows Oh God says that he has to fulfill or she has to fulfill all the frightfest will the following elements first, and then after that he says then they carry on doing the NaVi when they carry on doing the nothin extra things, it's not just knuffle in Salah This is enough of a carnival of fasting is enough of being good. Having good luck, good character when the Caribbean account do not eventually have to. I love them. I love them. Then they will never use their eyes except where I want them to use the eyes. They will never use the IRS except for I want the natural law says I become the eyes which they see when I become the hearing

00:43:06--> 00:43:45

Mr. Harrod, I become the hands with a church with and I become the feet which they walk with. Meaning that this person now he's my worldly, he's not going to walk, touch, see, hear anything except that I love that I love that thing. And then Allah says, at this point, if he ever asked for help, I will definitely help him and if you ask for protection, I will definitely protecting a protector. This is the Wali, Allah Azza wa Jalla has talked about his Alia and his family in various parts of the Quran. He said, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah has number 62 of the universe. So number 10, Allah insha Allah, those below remember this that the friends of Allah, the ones who

00:43:45--> 00:44:06

are close to Allah when Allah means friends, when cc says the friends, he means he's close ones, the close ones to Allah, there is no fear on them and they will never grieve. They will never grief. Now, Allah azza wa jal is our well he means what he is our guardian, he is our protector. He is our close one. He will only be our close one when we become close to him.

00:44:07--> 00:44:43

When we become close to him, he has got a rule. He has said in the Holy Quran, Surah Baqarah. To Burnside. He has an outfit via the UI radical, you fulfill my promise I will fulfill your promise. Allah says you do us first. If a person doesn't make a step towards Allah, Allah doesn't make a step towards him. That's why he says that men, men taravella shimron whoever comes to me one spans length, I will come to him one whole arm's length overcomes one length, I will come to two whole options and so on. What does that mean? That means that you make the move first and I will come twice as fast towards you, man, Masha, Allah, Allah, whoever will walk towards me I will run towards

00:44:43--> 00:44:59

them, meaning that I will come to you twice as fast as you will come towards me. So this means that if we make our move towards a lot trying to be close to Allah, Allah will become close to us. And Allah will become Ali, he will become a guardian who become a protector. That means next time when we need someone allies

00:45:00--> 00:45:09

You know what 79 cent gang gangsters and so on. They all have, you know, they will have the blood, the backup, they have the bread room,

00:45:10--> 00:45:16

they have the water column, and other names guys and other names

00:45:17--> 00:45:31

bredrin backup back my word Now the cool now. So they have all these people who are the backup. And none of these guys can operate without somebody being their backup. The believer he has a backup his backup is Allah.

00:45:32--> 00:45:37

He don't need he don't need to look at anywhere else begin at anyone else or anywhere else because

00:45:38--> 00:46:18

he's the backup. Now, of course, like I said earlier, you take your means up, but end of the day when you want to put a lot before you then then Allah is there and there is nothing else that you need. And I'll give you one last Hadees and then we'll stop here for today. Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is on a journey, and with the Sahaba and they camped in one place in the very thicket of trees. And they find one really nice big Shady Tree right in the middle of the of the thicket of trees. And they all go and take the other trees and they say no, this big, big one. This one will shade his tree. We will leave that for privacy Lala awesome. So Rasulullah sallallahu goes and he

00:46:18--> 00:46:42

rest on the there and the rest of the rest of the other other trees and they're having a midday nap because they're moving on in a battle now they've got to move on to a place maybe they're going to have a battle or something later on. But the camping so rasulillah when he rested, he puts his sword onto a tree he ties it up and socialism goes to sleep. everyone's asleep. midday time is nice and hot. Everyone knocked out.

00:46:43--> 00:46:52

Here comes emotionally polytheist he sees all the Muslims are asleep. So the policies comes and he says

00:46:53--> 00:47:33

Whoa, this is his he This is his I'm in a field day to day. everyone's asleep and right in the middle there lefleur leader and he's asleep as well. So let me just go up there. Let me just kill him. And halus Marcus free from this man. So he comes all the way tiptoeing all the way to perhaps the last alum. What does he do? He takes a lesson from the tree and then he points it to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam right up to now the Arabs hadn't seen that they wouldn't kill anyone. You know, while he's sleeping, he would at least give the man a chance to wake up before he dies. So he pointed the sword of the professor of law salon and he said to me said Manian narrow cominis and

00:47:33--> 00:47:39

who's gonna save you from me right now? He's got a sword right to the province of Lhasa

00:47:40--> 00:47:49

sono sola sola salon opens his eyes, he sees that a sword is also in the hands of a machete pointing towards him. So perhaps Allah so slowly gets up.

00:47:50--> 00:47:54

When he gets up, Prophet sallallahu wasallam says

00:47:55--> 00:48:03

and when he said that the man dropped the sword facism picked us up and then pointed at the machine and he said, Who's going to save you from me now?

00:48:04--> 00:48:08

The way it was was a lot smarter. And he said that the man should have

00:48:10--> 00:48:10

pointed at him.

00:48:11--> 00:48:16

Now with that, with that sound of all the Sahaba they woke up

00:48:17--> 00:48:22

so they all crowded around useless last night God is the sole tools is machine.

00:48:23--> 00:48:54

And then the machine says couldn't hire Ah, he, he says, make the best of the two choices you have. Meaning Please let me off. He even said if you let me off, I will not conspire against you. I will not go and join another army and fight against you. Just let me off because you see now look, he's got the sword or the Sava already like if he presumes that the killer will kill him. Right. So Professor Lawson then says, fine says let him go.

00:48:55--> 00:48:57

Processing just let him go.

00:48:59--> 00:49:22

Just let him go. So Hana lag and they say that Alex Lawson was a warmonger. They say that he was used one that he wanted to fight he let him go and this how this shows what our son woke up there was no fear on his face. He just got up who's got the power alone got the power. So he said a lot with that. Imagine that came out of even the Allah He said

00:49:24--> 00:49:43

that that machine he dropped his sword just by saying the name of Allah azza wa jal. Now this this is the final thing I'll say today inshallah next week we'll continue from from Allah Islam Hamid from Allah Mohammed onwards, so inshallah Allah See you next exam

00:49:50--> 00:49:50

and having
