Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim. The People often ask me which of yours is the favorite ayah and for me personally it is a it will kursi the reason for this is because it is as though we are asking Allah subhanho wa Taala Who are you? And Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us a love La Ilaha Illa who will how you will consume Allah He is the one who is ever living and hi Alka You are the one who exists on his own, and he requires nothing in existence to exist, and he is the one by whom everything exists, and they cannot exist without him. So Allah subhanahu wa taala describes himself to us in this ayah when obey bluecard LLB Allahu anhu was asked by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:00:55--> 00:01:47

sallam, au 18 Viki tabula he album, which is the greatest ayah in the Quran in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then obey bluecard Bharati Allahu anhu says, I could see it is ayatul kursi. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hit him on his chest or you could say he touched him on his chest, and he says Leah nickel in muya abamune here that l and knowledge is a good thing for you as well. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam acknowledged that this area is the greatest ayah in the Quran. And the reason for this is because if we take a look at the subject matter of this ayah then it is none other than Allah subhanho wa Taala the greatest surah in the Quran is omole keytab,

00:01:47--> 00:02:41

fatty hytrel keytab the fact that we recite every day in our Salah, the reason for it being the best surah in the Quran, is because again Allah subhanahu attallah is speaking about himself. Ooh, Allahu Ahad Allahu Samad, this surah is known as a third of the Quran, it actually counts for a third of the Quran. Why? Because again, Allah subhanahu wa taala is describing himself and his qualities. So Allah subhanahu wa attalus is Allahu La Ilaha Illa who will hire you, but if we were to stop at Allah, we would be able to continue without the meaning being changed from lead who leucaena to Allah No. So we would say Allah, let leucaena to Medina, Allah, the One who sleepiness does

00:02:41--> 00:03:17

drowsiness does not overtake him. While I don't know does sleep overtaking you find that a human being goes to sleep at times. In fact, every day a human being will go to sleep whilst he is asleep. He is not able to address the concerns of his family, he is not able to address the concerns of the fellow human beings, but when he is awake, then he can do this. Allah subhanahu wa tada does not sleep. So people ask him at all times people need him at all times. And he is there providing for them, sustaining them responding to them.

00:03:18--> 00:04:05

So Allah subhanho wa Taala does not sleep and as a result he is the one who we should seek protection in latter leucaena to Allah No. Perhaps you will one day have a problem at home May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us. Perhaps a burglar comes into your house and you begin to shout out oh my father Oh my father but he's sleeping. He cannot help you. Yet Rob bull is that he will Jalan when you call out to Him. He never sleeps. So he will be there ready to protect you. He will be there ready to help you. Yeah, Allah helped me. And if you say it Moulton and Phil Calvi, really and truly believing it in your heart, Allah bless that you will Jalil will most definitely help you

00:04:06--> 00:04:57

let Hulu Sina to know Allah no lefou Murphy sama wati wa marfil Out To Him belongs everything in the heavens and everything on Earth. So if a person is having difficulty with his neighbor having difficulty perhaps with his business partner or he is fearing some magic that was done on him from someone, then let him know that that being that person that has harmed Him belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala so why not seek refuge in the owner of that person? Do you not think he will protect you? Do you not think he has the capacity to change the affairs completely? And it is very important for us to mention here that let us not go into the completely haram manner of doing this. Some people

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

you will find they will go to a witch doctor

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

Who will tell them you know you need to take the bones do this do that and then if you do this ritual then you will get rid of this. Perhaps that may completely get rid of the problem that you have, but it will put you into a another problem and that is you have taken shaytan as a guardian besides Allah subhanahu wa Tada. So, trust in the one who created those beings to protect you Lahu Murphy sama wati wa Mirfield of men, the lady Yesh, Pharaoh in devil in LA Beasley, who is it that will make shefa intercession with him, except by his permission of bullets that you will gel on the day of tm Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he himself will need the permission of Allah

00:05:44--> 00:06:35

subhanahu wa tada to make that shofar. He will put his head on the ground and he will be doing such that for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and only when Allah subhanahu attallah tells him to raise his head, will he raise his head irrfan sokkia Mohammed, raise your head, oh Mohammed, and then he will tell himself Tata wish to Jaffa say he will say ask and you will be given and do the shafa and you will be given the shafa that you so desperately seek from Allah subhanho wa Taala so if this is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam manga ladyish Pharaoh in the who in Labine, who is it that will be able to give that shefa except by his permission? Yeah, lm oma Bane ad him Allah

00:06:35--> 00:07:19

subhanho wa Taala knows that which is in front of him mama headphone and that which is behind them. Yeah and the Medina ad mama headphone Wallah. You tuna be shaming me he Illa de Masha and they have absolutely no knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala except that which he has given them the Ala Moana banner ad him on my cell phone which means that he knows whatever happened in your life, you've been through difficulty you've been through hardship, you've been through problems. Allah subhanho wa Taala knows about it and since he is the one who created you, He will take care of it. Warm alfalfa home and that which is in front of them as well. Whatever they are going to face in the future.

00:07:20--> 00:08:12

Allah subhanahu Allah is aware of it what are you gonna be shaming me in lobby Masha, so he knows everything yet the creation knows very little of Allah subhanho wa Taala except that which Allah subhana wa Taala has given to them. What car could see you who somehow what you will have his kursi has encompass the entire heavens and the earth. So imagine how great Arambula is that you will jellal is if this is just the core See, and this is why this area is known as ayatul kursi because a person understands the Obama the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala once he could see you smell what you will have, while I do his Luma wahoo allele you love him and the protection of this heaven

00:08:12--> 00:09:04

and the earth. It does not tie Allah subhanho wa Taala in any way whatsoever. And he is the most hi allow them the Great. So as we can see in this ayah Allah subhanahu attallah describes so much of himself. Perhaps in a longer session we will be able to explain in true detail who Allah subhanho wa Taala is from this area. Obviously we will never be able to encompass the sea fat and the smell of Allah subhanahu wa taala but we can only have a glimpse into that may Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us the ability to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala in the manner that he wants us to worship Him and bearing in mind his greatness.
