Mateen Vallejo Hamid mercy and moody and worried and Marie and meet her human magic the magic the rock solid, I'll call today. mocha hero, our hero Belkin and valley azimuthally Alberto
mala Foo Foo man, Malika Mulkey duralabel acromial Moxie to General avani, Mooney and manual adorable natural neural Heidi.
And Heidi Alba, Dr. bacchi Eduardo Rashid Osama. So we're on the last 10 names of a small liner has not. And what we stopped on last week was on the name, Mooney, Mooney, we did honey and munia. Now today, we're starting off with Alma nia.
Now mania is one of our languages named to show that he can stop anything he wants to, he can prevent anything he wants to. And we've got to believe in the fact that allows the journal, you know the whole cone and the existence. It is every particle of every single part of this whole existence, every single breath. Every breath can only be taken through his permission.
So if you want to stop somebody breathing, he can stop them breathing. If you want to stop anything moving, he can stop moving.
And we know we have kandice examples. He just gives one stroke to one human being one stroke, finished.
The human being can't move anymore. Half the side is paralyzed, half complete. The whole thing is paralyzed. The whole thing
is still alive, but it can't move. If Allah wants to prevent something from reaching something, he will do
azula Salallahu alaihe salam in his sixth year in Medina azula sallallahu wasallam was coming to McCallum karma to perform his armor. But he hadn't waited for Allah permission to come out. He saw the dream. And he knew that this dream means that they will perform Umrah so Prophet sallallahu came out with his companions. And he said to them that we're going to perform Umrah and they got to have a beer. And when they got there, then when they got the the, his camel came to place in had a beer, and it stopped.
It just stopped.
Now he sold a dream. What he should have done is he should have waited for lazada to give him the permission to leave.
But he didn't wait for that. And without waiting for that he left and then he realized at this point, that his camel is not going forward anymore. So sudo sauce is trying to move it but it's not going at all. So that's the companion submission of Allah. What is wrong?
Allah has and then he said he said habits and he had this will feel. He said, The Lord who has prevented the Lord who prevented the elephants from reaching the Kaaba.
That same load has prevented me today and stopped me in this place.
Remember that time when they came with the elephants are rocking the elephants that have us any hobbies we'll feed. I remember when I was
I was young. Melissa. I had an intention to go to LA
with my father. So I came back from the
holidays and I hadn't performed camera because I don't know whatever happened the ticket was in Edison. So my teacher asked me when I came back to class he said, he said, What happened? How come you never went to him Roberson you
have a son he
was dropped, you know, the elephants have stopped me as well from going to the Carver now
this word hub is Romania they're all the same which means to prevent to stop. And there are there's another name mum sick mom sick very similar to this music which means also to prevent to stop or to hold back and to keep back
in the Holy Quran in Surah Fatiha Allah azza wa jal says ma, ma ma ma, ma ma ma, ma, ma ma usyk Fela Musil Allah, this is beautiful. If you really think about all the things that are Lazarus giving. He says, what are the mercy He wants to release? Yeah, now imagine, imagine I'm here, and I'm sending a letter to my family abroad. Yeah, I'm sending some money from the Buddha. Now when I send the letter, I know first I gotta make sure that goes into postbox. Next, the postman is going to get it, then it's going to go to the you know, the place where the Depo from the Depo they're going to remove it, move it to the International, you know, place for the Depo and then they log on to the
plane somewhere. And then it will go over to the other side. Once it goes all the way to Bangladesh. That's where my worry starts. Because those guys in Bangladesh are probably gonna be looking at the package is something important and I think there's some something here is gone. His last? Yeah. So until they haven't reached until it hasn't reached them and they haven't got it. I'm not going to be very happy and pleased with, with with just knowing that I've sent the letter, right? with old anything that I send anything that I'm doing, I've got this conscious now that will get there will it will it reach them? Where allows me then he says
he says now you receive Allahumma Rama. Allah says when I send my mercy
There is not a single person or being or a creation or anything that's going to stop my mercy from reaching what I wanted to reach.
So if right now, I have received Allah's mercy
I should know that Allah wanted me specifically to be to have to have that message received that mercy. This is from you. You think that directly from Allah any mercy that you got directly from Allah that came to me and Allah no Allah neither Allah angels nor Allah as you know the genes know the human beings know the wind know the you know the existence cone anything nor anyone's curse not anything can stop it. If I allow one start to come to me it will come to me but then he says
like for example, you know, sometimes you think that you're going to hold something maybe you want to hold a secret you want to let go
so you know the thing is secret the secret if he just stays with you
think about a secret is the moment you tell somebody else.
Yeah, it's half a secret
The moment he tells somebody else yeah it's it's one half and two quarters
because from there that secret becomes you know, the value of the secret gets less and less a secret is a secret if you're the only one who knows it
well as of then he says for my usyk fellow moves along said if I want to keep something back, want to hold something back there is no one that's going to release it so for example, somebody got trapped nerve somebody got trapped nerve Yeah. Now is trapped inside allows a woman to seek whatever the hell you can try and release that you can try and release that crap. No, you can try and untie you can do what you want.
Not gonna happen.
Oh my usik fella mussalam. No one can release the thing that he's held back. So this is this is from you know, this is this is where your kin comes in that for us as Muslims, we go with these names. And we've got a thinks all the examples. I'm just giving you a couple of examples from the top of my head of holding something or releasing something. And you think as human beings when we want to release something or hold something, we want to make a lot of plans and so on. And so jealousy is very simple. I think that when I when I haven't gotten mercy from Allah, imagine, Allah hasn't given me something that I wanted. He decided not to give it to me. He actually decided not to give it to
me for a reason. Now maybe he might still give it to me. Maybe he wants to test the patience. Now Allah God many ways of testing his human beings. It's like, I'll give you an example. And you were a little kid. And your example my little kid
my little kid
He's only three years old. So on Fridays his his nanny grandmother comes and sees him.
So, Fridays he knows the student nanny comes to the door, nanny without Salah without anything, sweetie
lollipop. First thing a lollipop, where's my lollipop? Where's my sweetie. So, nanny knows also that to you know, get to get Headley or kissy wherever. To get the closest she has to bring a lollipop. So she brings the lollipop which will give it to him.
But the thing is the day when every time she comes is done, it's a lollipop the nanny right Oh, anything else fine, but lolly was the main thing. Obviously the nanny knows that he's come to me because a lollipop. what she'll do is she'll wait until the day he comes. And it has happened he'll come he'll want her but not the lollipop. So you've been nanny I want you
I don't care whether you got lollipop or you don't have lollipop. Yeah. So what are the laws of
Alice testing us all the time.
He will give us sweetness
in make us feel good about Allah's mercy or receiving something from him. His Rama has given us something something that we've benefited from, we'd like to make our draws and benefit feeling good inside. And when you send in your data you feel sweet inside. And that's a nice feeling. But what is allowed to go on to know whether you're coming to him because of lollipop.
Whether you come for the sweetness and whether you come for the mercy, you come for mercy. Are you going for generosity? Are you coming because I'm being kind to you? I can't because I'm you know, showing you some some of my integrant mercy Are you coming because I've done a favor on you are you can because of that, oh, you came for me. So that's why what Allah does is at some point, Allah will not show us mercy. That doesn't mean he doesn't love us.
Doesn't. It doesn't mean that Allah doesn't love us. What it means is that our last testing us I used to going to get up and worship Me, I used to go to get up and you know, do something I used to go to put those smiles in your face for other people. Are you still going to you know, make other people feel happy?
Or is it because you were you are wanting something from me and then only you're going to be happy with others or if you don't get my mercy then you're not going to be happy with others so that he's testing us to see what what we do.
So manner, one of the Sula Salalah Harrison inheritable hora de profesor de la Harrison after this after he says every every farfalla Rasulullah sallallahu c'est la ilaha illallah wa Who? luxury Kala hula hula hamdulillah Patricia de la mala many Allah ottlite while I'm on clearly Rama not while I infer that
he's you say, you know there is no no other deity besides Allah azza wa jal he himself alone he has no partners and he has the dominion and for him is all praise and he is over everything he is powerful. Allahu Allah, Allah Allah many Allah airtight there is nothing to stop what you're giving.
While I'm not the only vamana there's nothing to give what you are holding back what you're preventing Allah Mattila not while I And Pharaoh then did him and anyone who's got any prosperity are in good good condition can really benefit from it
Nothing can benefit from it only accept if you want them to benefit from it they will receive that benefit and they will be in the position to benefit from it.
So this is something that rasulillah Some will say after the fact so again, these words why they repeated again again and ruthless Allah solos you know he did he's doing this he's doing this after every single formula and there are plenty of others they used to do after response Allah The reason why is because when you repeat something and you repeat something and you repeat something, it becomes your Eman. Eman is the summary of repetition and repetition repetition is what belief what becomes belief. For example, you have seen the yellow m you've seen what a yellow m that
you see just the yellow m that's all yellow m yellow and yellow and what does it mean? What is it? Well you guys, McDonald's Mashallah McDonald's. So all you do is you see Yeah, m yo M is McDonald's, because repetition is repeated so many times so many times so many times sometimes I You see, even sometimes you get this like for example, if I if I show you a particular orange, I don't know what that particular orange is but you know the orange of Sainsbury's Yep. You see that orange? You haven't even seen the hollow Sainsbury's yet. You've seen the orange. What happens? You know, it's the same reason. You see particular line of blue for Tesco. And you see a particular line no shade
of green for us. If you were to see that, you know, you know it's it's that that's why because
This is psychology knowing that repetition of anything will condition the mind to think like that. So what we want is we want to know like for example when you're going through the world and creation and everything Everything is allows origin
that's how as we everything is Allah so for example if I see let's say for example, I'm starting early in the morning, and I wake up my eyes open
if I just think I'm just waking up just saving my bed my life do what I want, here, my alarm clock, switch it off, do a one in my morning, I wake up and I want to have a cup of tea when I want. Yeah, then that person is going to you know, it's just their life. But the person wakes up and he thinks first thing like hamdulillah
so happy you know it's like, um, how so happy Allah The yadi Bahia Nevada mammoth Anna, the one who's giving me life again.
After I just died because I didn't know what I was. I was just like, thanks. So who's in the mind straightaway? It's a loss of him being what he and him be meet. Right? See the names of Allah Mohammed they come to life. So then what la mooshu to him I'm going to return so then the person gets up. First thing is Allah azza wa jal has told me remembering to do what we'll do on everything to pray. Second says straightaway allegan then after the old maybe before that, even when a person putting clothes on the sofa when a person has gone to toilet before they go to the toilet, Doctor, Allah Allah, they're coming Actonel kung fu between la after the Voodoo shadowline Angela De La
Cienega right so the person you know during the cleanliness you thinking what Allah Allah you know, wash my wash my sins of my hands, my face my you know my body and so on. So it's aligned the mind so you prayed was aligned in mind you finish your prayers. Let's say for example, you see your child or something, and you just say Salaam to them again a Salam Salam is the name of Allah. Salam is the name of Allah. So then you might go from there.
And so for example, you're going to eat, right? You see like over a katella Allah, Allah, official food, Allah, you know, during the, for example, during that time, if you're washing up whatever you're doing, yep, you think Rasulullah sallallahu did this who said resources from Allah? So here's my example. So I'm brushing up on cleaning up tidying up the the cleanliness, why am I doing it because in Allah Hannah leaf allows, you know he's clean. He likes cleanliness. So he's, he's beautiful. He likes beauty. Jamelia Jamal. So that's what I'm doing. So again, Allah, I'm walking, if I can make this happy Legolas Allah said, la sala de San Carlos avant de la. Let your tongue
never become dry. Let your tongue always remain moist with the vicar of Allah. So if I say swallow, swallow
whatever I'm saying sunrise, remember Allah go to the car. remember Allah Who gave you the power in the car to ride this car? Allah Subhana Allah de Sahaja lacuna. lamphun so everything, Allah, Allah, Allah so I'm going to say first of all, I want to work on going shopping. Right? I see people, what do I see? I see again, I see the Nirvana of Allah. Why? Because he's giving me diarrhea. You might not have given that person a diet. I'm gonna keep my eyes down. Again, I'm conscious of Allah.
I'm buying something Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah workplace, I'm going to, you know, earn my halaal earning but not cheat, not work in a way that I'm not fulfilling my duties again. Think of Allah Allah is watching me, whatever I'm doing on my PC or thing wherever I'm going, whatever I'm looking at. Allah is watching me, right? Allah Allah Allah throughout the whole of the night, if a person can do this, then that's it, you know and then specifically within 99 Names of Allah so for example, the next two names will come to the door Nadia, a bar is one name and an aphorism don't dog means the one who has the one who hums and anaphora is the one who benefits right so any benefit in
this world I get a nephew or gave it to me and any harm I received an A dog, Allahu Allah dar is the one who
in afflicted me with that with that affliction. So these this name now these two names, adore and nurture the two next names. They surround the most basic of all human needs, and reasons for living on this earth.
There is can you think of anything can you think of
anything at all that is, is in this world which you are going to do or you're doing. Yeah. Which you're going to do or doing or have done the whatever it is, yeah.
Anything you're doing, which does not have benefited it,
anything you're doing, which you're suppose you're doing because you want to stay away from harm.
All people who are living good lives, or people who are living good lives will do the will think of these two things. Number one is I'm doing this because I'm going to benefit myself in the future. And number two is, I'm doing this because I want to save myself from harming from harm in the future. Yes, that's why every sensible person will do when any person does something outside of that Allah has made it hard on
when I start doing something which is going to harm me, when I do something, which is not going to benefit me at all, Allah has made it What? haram? So if I'm drinking water, what is going to benefit me? Allah says Allah, if I start drinking toxicants, and it's going to make me not know what I'm going to do, and I might cause crime, and it will, it will harm me. What are the other
drugs, that's really much harder, because people who are drugs, they are harming themselves.
They are harmed. And so this is the crucial if you understand this principle, you understand the whole, the whole idea, Xena, somebody wants to commit adultery, they might see the little benefit in that they might see the little benefit in drugs. And I think if I think drugs are really good, but it's actually harming the body in the long term, Xena having a child out of wedlock, or going down that pathway. And, and, you know, having the illicit relationship and having, you know, risking the fact that there might be many, you know, either the child that is unwanted or there might be even in a split up so there might be even so many harms there for the disease and other things like you know
about AIDS and so on. Because of that, and the human race might harm itself. Alaska Xena is Hara
anything you think of how long? There is some harm there, which which human beings will have you know, harmed themselves with, as well as Sara, even though there is a short term benefit in that?
And that's why Allah azza wa jal, the whole Sharia has come to make us do those things that are beneficial for us, and to stay away from those things that are harmful to us. Is that clear? So if you understand this, then you understand that the Sharia has only come for the best, best thing for us. Right? A person doesn't pray, let's say the president doesn't pray. He doesn't think of Allah. If he doesn't think of Allah and he doesn't connect with his creator, he's going to connect with other creation.
And connecting with other creation is disaster.
connecting with other Christian disaster, like for example, if if a kite imagine a person who's got a kite, he's in the park, and he's got a kite. And then he starts to you know, he starts running around running on the kite starts lifting up with the wind, and the kite right up in the air and he's controlling it, right. Okay, now that kite, the kite has got a controller, right? The kite has got a controller. So this kite is right in the air. Right? About 100 feet, 200 feet 300 feet high. Right? And right in the air, and it's swinging, and it's enjoying the breeze and is flying. Right? It's been obviously controlled, but it's flying. If that kite still knows that I've got a controller
and my controller is down there that human being is controlling me then that kite is alright. But if that kite for a moment things I don't need my controller I can fly myself.
So let me try and get out of this string cut off and I can fly myself imagine it cut off from its control what will happen to the what
will happen to the car if the control if the control is okay, let me cut the string never let go.
The kite will take be taken by the wind they might enjoy the first few spins. But by God when he starts going to the tools a tree or somewhere else will be completely entangled in a mess that will probably stay there for years. Right? The same way when a human being things that you know, I'm I'm in control of my one you know I can do what I want. I'm enjoying myself I'm alive. I'm kicking them lively wherever I can wherever. I don't need that controller. I will control is Allah azza wa jal is controlling us We are the kite in the sky wherever we are. Right? And if we think that we can, we can just let go and be ourselves and do what we want. There's disaster. There's another creation,
the wind that is all around us. That that
When dramas will cause you know will cause disaster meaning in the you know the US being with other creation will be will destroy us. So in the Holy Quran Allah azza wa jal has reminded us again and again. He has said say this law I'm liquid enough see a dot Ramallah nefra illa Masha, Allah says in Surah Yunus number 49 I have no power over my own, my own harm, my own benefit, I have no control over that. So whether I want to, you know, benefit myself, I can't benefit myself. I can't even harm myself really. I mean, you know, obviously, we can't have we can't benefit we say that, but who the real one who, who we get the power to benefit ourselves the real world we get the power to stop the
harm from coming to ourselves from Allah. So Allah says the net see number one enough whether it's harm or benefit, I don't even have the power to stop that harm coming toward myself or give myself the benefit that I want inland. Mashallah, except that Allah azza wa jal, he wills. So we have a full trust in trust in Allah azza wa jal
and there are plenty of ads in the Holy Quran. But one thing he says is, you know, obviously, Allah tests us through taking away one benefit, giving us harm than taking away harm gingras benefit. So all he wants to do is see which one of us is going to turn to him in the right time right moment and which one is not. So for example, in Surah
number 54, Allah says, So my question for Roku is a 30 min can be rubbish Tikun, when Allah afflict someone, and then after a while, he takes that affliction away. Then he says, Now you start contention, now you start associating others, Allah has talked about the human self, no one knows the human any better than Allah. And one thing Allah says about the human is Allah Silva lumen Jolla, this human being his greatly does a lot of wrong to himself, or to herself. And the human being is very ignorant law says you're very ignorant to us. Say you are very oppressive to yourself, because there's no one else that causes harm to himself, except for the human being.
There's no one else that causes harm to the human being except the human being himself. So what you got to understand is that
you know, when the when the great ones, the great ones who are close to Allah azza wa jal ones are critical who are close to Allah azza wa jal. They don't have any. They don't have any sort of worries, except that Allah azza wa jal is there for the the great people that don't have any worries, as long as they will answer them. As long as they know allies, okay with them. You know, this is this is really man. So you know, most of us what will happen is the praise of others, the praise of others, and the blame of others will move shift us up and down. So for example, imagine I came to the masjid and everyone's you know, martial law with
a praise makes me feel that I've really been benefited.
And then imagine one day I came here and everyone said, Oh, who's he? What's he doing? You don't want to see him?
And then he says a few things about me Now, obviously, you know, because of that, that few words about me I'm going to feel I've been harmed. harm has come to me and then I'll feel down right? So in praises them filling up when blame is them feeling down. The ones who are close to Allah azza wa jal, neither praise changes them, no blame changes them.
This is as soon as possible. So for example, and this is a very, very difficult one to master. A very, very, very, very difficult one to master. So for example, all his enemies out there are blaming him
and Prophet salallahu alaihe salam you know he's, he's not been affected by I mean, he gets he gets slightly if he got he did get slightly affected by it. But a lot consultant who said you are your Mohammed you are not a poet like the saying you know, this man, Sabina, Matera, because you're not a madman, and so on and so forth. He was consoled, but it didn't affect him, to the degree that it would have affected anyone I'm telling you, if it was any other ordinary human being, they would have gone absolutely mad or they will run away from from being in that position. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, when there was blame outside Prophet sallallahu wasallam didn't have
himself changing, but also when he had praise. When he was praised. He wasn't like he got praise and then he was really happy that day. And then he didn't he didn't notice that the Muslims are praising him so he was feeling done. It's not like that prophecy was was was was the same, neither blame
No praise, we change him. This is a sooner and it's a very decent process. One is, it's one if I can have in my life, a lot of things would go good. For example, imagine you go home, and your wife is upset with you.
And you know, you haven't done anything wrong to Allah
would you change? You know, well, she's, she's having a bad day, she's the one having a bad day. Right?
Right. And so, you know, you don't, you don't obviously make it obvious, but he just is okay you know, you stay quiet, whatever she has
to do. And but you know, that she's the one who's got the fluctuation, you don't have to fluctuate with that, you can stay where you are. Right, then another time what happens is, you know, your wife really happy or your child happy, whatever, and they're making you feel really nice that you're, you know, fine, tablet, nice, good time and I can feel good I can smile I can be happy with then that's fine. But my real state should be the same.
So neither praise doesn't really lift me up high. And then something else that I miss out, you know, takes me low, that shouldn't be the case, I should see the Allies not your allies and allies the one that I need to keep this as long as that is stable with myself and Allah then then I should know all these other things are just a test. All these other things I just did and he wants to test he says here so my when I when I take the when I take the benefit from into various parts of the Quran, Allah said this for example, you will consider to rule number 33 with Amazon so guru when Allah says, Allah says when I flick people with an affliction thou Rahmani Bina they start cold making to
our to me making the army money big no lengthy, lengthy, nice. They completely are devoted to me. Now this guy, his money is so devoted.
You know, he's completely devoted to Allah. And Allah says, so my eval allow me, the moment I gave him the Rama, I give him mercy. If after a communion, then after that, then come back to the ways again, remember I said earlier, the lollipop, lollipop comes out, and come back to back to normal again. Yep. So what is Allah? Allah doesn't Allah doesn't appreciate those people. He appreciates the people whom, if they now imagine, right, imagine, there was a father
and his child, the father knew that the child wanted something from the Father.
And the father knew that if he gave it to his child, his child wouldn't be so you know, so close to the Father anymore. The father might decide one day, I'm gonna test my child. I'm not gonna give to give to him what he wants. But let me see how he reacts. Now imagine, the son reacts very good. He has very good attitude and behavior towards the father and is very close to him and very kind and gentle towards him for four months, and the father might decide to give it to him. But the father might decide, you know what, he's been so good to me for months, maybe forgive him now, he might
go back to his ways again, let me hold you back for another two months. So he also for another two months is a total of six months. Yep. The Father, Mr. disana time, let me let me You know what, let me just tell you the full year, let me see what he does for a full year. Let me see if he breaks up. Let me see if he gets angry as I forget this, I can't carry this anymore. I can't just stop pretending you know, to love him and be kind to him and be so gentle towards him. If I don't get my you know, my car or whatever it was after from him, then forget it, or my house or whatever I'm after. So the father tested. Now, if the biggest thing it is, the father might want to test him a
bit longer. See this sound like a house? I'm gonna give him a house, right? I still want him to know me as a father. I don't want him to get a house tomorrow. He doesn't know who his father is. He doesn't know anything about him. So he might test him for a year or two years. Finally, if you really want to test him, he might just test him and Testament testament just see for years. See, is he really just after the thing, or is he really here to make me happy? Yes, that's the ultimate test. So imagine in the end, if you test him a test him and then the boy one day, you know, the father says, okay, you know, here's some here's the key.
Here's the keys to that house, there is yours. Now, only imagine that day the sun turns down and says that, you know,
you've that's fine. You've given me another house. But you know what, I want to stay with you.
As he says, I want to stay with you.
Fine, you give me the house.
And the day I need to go in the house the day you're not here wherever I need to go in the house. I'll go to the house. But it's not the house. You want to serve you want to be with you. Now how happy would the father be
that how happy the father would be now finally first his son was after this house.
If he gave it to him the first two months, his son would have just gone and said, Bye Bye, Dad, you know, my belongings, everything you know? I say no, I'll come and see you once a year on your birthday. I'll see you once a year in a time twice a time and that's it. Yeah. A Father's Day four times a year now. Yeah, that's it. That's the best you're going to hear from me.
Right? So you would have gone but that's that's if he was at two months. But Allah Allah azza wa jal you know, he's the seventh of his he tested he was testing his son his test his son for a long time, eventually his son the Father, Son, he doesn't want to now do it for the house. It was different for the for his father. So what Allah does with us as well sometimes is we want something from a library desperately.
And a lot, same way he holds it back. He holds it back holds you back. Sometimes it gives it to us sometimes might give it to us for two months, sometimes one month, sometimes one year, sometimes two years, sometimes three, four years. Sometimes you might just hold me back and hold you back and just wait wait to see
why is he here? Is he here for his daughter to be accepted because the day he was accepted is gone. is like thank you Allah in the masala
close the Quran on the shelf. Yeah, thank you. I'm gone here. I've got my I've got my money. I've got my whatever I wanted. Freedom free man. Yep. So sometimes even death might come. But you know, the most beautiful thing is that when the death comes, the death hasn't come. And then finally, Allah gave it to the seven and a seven I received anything.
I wanted that from you, and I got it. So what I'm here for you, I'm here for you, that would make Allah so happy, that would make a lot so appreciative of, of who we are, and what you do. So that is
that is one way of understanding, you know, this precious thing I'm saying about da da, da for any benefit or harm from Allah so it shouldn't, you know, we shouldn't we shouldn't be affected by the creation. And when the Creator is holding something back from us and is, is not giving us any benefit. Or when the Creator is benefiting us we should understand that it's just the creator that we hate to please our from him will get everything and not from anyone else. Now, the next
name is a no, no, no, is the one who enlightens The one who creates light, the one who gives light and nor here doesn't mean just light. normies No, we're the one who makes and gives light. So when Allah said in the Holy Quran
in surah, surah, number 35. Allah Who knew somehow it will, Allah is the light of the heavens of the earth, it doesn't mean like that. It means allies the giver of light in the heavens of the earth. So Allah is the one who gives the light in the heavens on the earth. Now what does that mean?
This means not only the literally the life that he gives, there's two types of light. One light is the light that we see around us. And the other light is light. For example, if I say if I say he's, he's got a light heart, because he's got a light Mind if I say he's got a bright mind. Yeah. Now bright mind, you're not gonna see the brightness from his mind, his heads are gonna be shining light out.
You can't you don't say the brother. Well, you mean his metaphor, you mean that his his wife sharp is quite intelligent. The same way there's two lights of Allah with one is the light that he's provided for us, which we see. And the other one is the guidance that he gives, the guidance gives. And that brings us to the last name, which is named with this, what I'm gonna do both of these together.
Heidi and Heidi, which is the one who guides so I'm just going to do these two names. And after that we finished. So a lot of giving light means if you give somebody light, he gives them guidance. He gives somebody strength, he gives something what they need, he makes it appropriate. He makes it live, it's normal, you know, in his normal way, when it's best, it performs the best. That's what it means by law giving light to something. So when Allah said in the hole in that part of the Quran, he said Allah Who knew somehow it will. Allah is the one who gives light to the heavens of the earth. And then he gives a beautiful example. He says Martha Lulu re the example of his light is commish
catching fee. Jaime's bar is like and imagine
I know this is a big new hobby. Imagine though this is a small alcove that's that's small alko and Allah azza wa jal says that imagine that that alcohol is going into platform and in the there is a lantern, right? There's a lantern in there. And that Lantern, so sorry, in that alcohol, there's a ledge and on that ledge there is a
ulmus bajo fi zyada the lanton itself is in a glass right as the GA the glass itself is so sparkling and so clear. It's as though it is like a very bright star
which is light which is lit by this lantern is lit by
lit by a tree right
from a tree such oil that is bless it neither from the from the east nor the West
it's oil itself the oil that lights the lantern is so clear that you could almost say that it's lit without the fire and he doesn't even need to touch the fire but when the when it does when it's in light when you when is sparked by the fire you get noon Allah No Do you get light over light? Yeah de la nuit II Manisha Allah will guide to his to his light whoever he wants wherever he will allow him Salinas Allah gives these examples for people will lobby collusion and for for people obviously to ponder over Allah has knowledge of everything now you've got a lot going on here you've got this alcohol thing then you've got this you know ledge and under lead you've got this lantern and the
lantern has got this
you know glass and the glass inside you've got you've got this oil inside the lantern and the oil is so so clean. And it comes from a tree Allah says that neither is from the east or the west. And that oil is so clean and so sparkly. It's almost like you can say that it's it's on fire. You know it's burning already. But once you light it up, then it really starts burning and you see the beauty of the of the whole lantern is that light over light. And Allah says he goes to his light whoever he wills. Now, what does this all mean? The mufa soon have said
that the example of the alcove is this chest.
Right? Is it chest. So in the chest another way you've got your ribs there, right it's almost like an alcove in there. In there you've got a ledge
there's like one ledge here. The ledge is my my heart
in that Allah said Miss bar you've got a thing you've got you've got a London that London is my email. Right The London is my email in my heart which is my chest.
He then says Zoo jazza there's a there's a glass and the glass is very very close luckily it's like the star it's like a bright star. So what is that that is the clearness of my he man
he man he man can be something that that you know if someone's A man has got a lot of charge that is going to be very clear and bright. He's like for example example. You're not you know, when you got a torch light, the torch light. If you got full eco fresh brand new batteries, right, let's say Duracell or something and you got extra power Duracell and you got an extra six plus whatever Duracell. And the like the strongest batteries, you can get it I'm advertising USA but you know, you put those inside and you're brand new, everything working nice, you put it on, it's gonna be really bright. But if those start to be used for a long time, then it starts to dim down. So imagine the
same way a man can be really bright. And it can be clear as you know, glass that is day which you can't even see the glasses like bright star or something. So a man can be very bright when your mind is charged up. I tell you you know there's a lot going on inside the the human you know the lot of good is going to come out of him. But when the man is weak then it's almost like it's dull inside. So now this is the brightness and the cleanness of my Eman depending on my depending on what I'm doing, depending on my
on my my Eman and how well I've looked after it, there's going to be brightness or darkness to that. So I like saying that this believer he's got his image very bright. Then he says zeta about the oil. Now this oil, he says not from the east of the West. And this is this is talking about the the the olive oil the most and say that this tree neither East nor the West is the olive oil olive tree. That tree, you know the olive tree, if it grows in any other part of the world. It won't give the same olive oil or the same olives as it grows in the Middle East, especially in Philistine Philistine. It's almost like neither is neither West. Nor its east. Right, right in the middle, that
tree olive tree because of the land there because the amount of sun that comes there because the amount of you know because of the atmosphere and everything else the agricultural sort of makeup
That oil the the tree of Philistine and the olive tree of that is the most clearest the best oil you can find in the world. And the reason why Allah is saying that that oil there What does that all mean that oil is my, my own
my own knowledge, or is that my knowledge so I've got my chest, the nakoma heart which is ledge. Then I've got my lantern which is the Eman then I've got the glass which is the cleanest and the brightness of that. And then I've got the oil which is the knowledge that I need knowledge that I need to boost my email to boost atlantan to start cleaner but the knowledge itself is so pure, because that knowledge is the knowledge of the Quran and Hadith that is so pure, it's almost like on fire without even touching it. The purity of Quran and the Sunnah when I start to practice Islam when I put that knowledge into action, Allah azza wa jal he says moon Allah knows that action you
know when you just sparked you know you put the oil into the lantern you lit the match and you put it in you know, you set it alight it become new knowledge or you know, light over light you know, you've got the first light that the brightness of the oil itself and now you've got the brightness of the fire. So it's noon, Allah Nuria, the same realized saying that when I believe after having his Eman in his heart, he then practice his knowledge and it puts his knowledge into practice, it becomes moon Allah knows that knowledge with the action next to my man makes me a believer that is light over light, meaning that I've got guidance now with the very, you know, Eman that Allah gave
me in the first place with the light that allowed another light was what was a man in the first place and Northern Ireland know the next light light of light is what the guidance of me to do actions upon the end and the knowledge that Allah gave me and to you know, 45 mighty man with it. So that is new Ronald. Now Yeah, the law who knew the law will guide whoever he wants to his who is like, what this means is that Allah azza wa jal has given us the opportunity to you know, to be benefited through each and every organ of ours by this by this light now Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam one of the draws is to say is Allahumma Gylfi bossa nova Allah make give give me light in
my eyes, right What does that mean? That means guide my eyes What few few summary neurons in my ears my hearing give me new dimming light. What does that mean? That means guide my hearing Let me hear things that I'm supposed to hear. Let me not hear things I'm not supposed to hear or feel is any new aura in my my tongue guide my tongue or feed me stay in my in my no meet Danny in my blood. Here is army in my bones with Nora,
Nora vivocity. Fifi, dummy, Nora,
Nora, and then he would say you know for his heart and all the different parts and then he would say what jalandoni neuron make me a light, meaning make me a source of guidance. That's what it means fitness was God's knowledge and him being Heidi, he guides us now his guidance is very interested. I'm just going to spend another couple of minutes and then I'm finished.
His guidance among Shara Lee has given a beautiful Tafseer of guidance. And he said that guidance is of many kinds, we got one guidance of a man but then you've got guidance of many different things. For example, you have the the ducklin that's just come out the
egg of the duck. That duckling within a day knows how to swim. who guided that that's Alhaji that's Allah guiding the duckling
that's Allah guide the duckling because not every creature can do that. to certain creatures if they fall in water straight with the dead. With a doctrine Allah gives that that guidance right the bird right goes into the it's it's nest. It now has got eggs there the eggs hatch, the little ones come out, the bird has to go everyday out bring food and feed it right the snake when it when it gives birth the snakes doesn't look after it if john wants to say just leaves it those are the snakes how to go and you know be guided and what to eat, what not to eat, where to find it is guidance, the human being when he's born, you think about the smell does the guidance the smell does the guidance
in being able to see the guidance in understanding the guidance of language, the guidance of knowing you know, how to, you know interact with people, the guidance of the smiles and the guidance of facial expressions. This guidance of you understand life densities, sphere, matter. Everything is a lie under the guidance of me being able to crawl then walk then run the guidance of me being able to you know, achieve things for example, sit for exams and the guidance of me now growing and growing in knowledge. Every single part has a guidance. Everything the guidance of balance guidance of walking guidance of being able to you
Communicate guidance of understanding different languages guidance of being bilingual guidance of me being able to think, you know, do multitasking. That's that's everything in everything that is
everything there is. There is guidance. One other person Lawson will say is Allahumma. A big big guidance. Obviously, we want these of Eman.
Allahu maggini. Allah guide me why the be and guide through me What a nice suburban luminesce and make me a source of others guidance. And obviously we say the biggest Brian sort of fatter is in a certain study guide is to the straight path, not straight parties, the balance of everything in life balance in every extreme, right extreme left extreme, and we want the balance in that. So I don't want to be extravagant. I don't want to be miser on balanced. I don't want to be swung too hard hearted, I don't want to be too soft hearted on the balance. I don't want to be the person who's a person who
doesn't understand the needs of others or understands too much of the needs of others. I want to be in between. I don't want to be a person who's too talkative, too quiet, or to be in the middle. I don't want to be the person who's to you know, aloof from people and to getting to entangling, mingling with people on a beach in the middle. Yeah, every single thing in my life, I want to be in the middle. I don't want to worship Allah to the extent that I'm doing harm to myself. I don't want to leave a large accent that I'm just doing. I'm just doing too much good to myself and to be in the middle. I want to be you know, in the middle with my wife, my kids with my social life and my
political life with my global life with my economic life, with every part of my life, if I do that, and that's, that's me guidance on this rather than studying
