Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Illa Allah Alameen wa became a serene one who suddenly want to sell me more Allah Tamil Ambia emammal mousseline Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Ultramarine allong Melissa Illa magenta who Sandler or entity Jadwal Husna, either Tesla, or OBS similar to us, and we're turning bill here we can stream. We thank Allah who believes that you want Jellal for having gathered us here. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to surround us with the mela and to cause his mercy and his Sakina to descend upon us and to raise us with the MBR Isla hemos Salatu was Salam and those whom he has mentioned with them, I mean,

00:00:47--> 00:01:38

Allah horrible is that you will Jalil created us for a purpose and that purpose is to worship Him alone. Hence we find he says, Well, I'm alfalfa to Eugene, you said earlier on and I did not create mankind and jinn kind except to worship me. But there is a another primary cause for our creation that we ignore that we don't pay attention to. And this is highlighted by Hola Hola buenas that you want to Jalan in the verse, Allah. Allah wa Sandra SML y team, I mean, and I'll be Miss Levin. Allah created the seven heavens and the seven Earth's as well. Yeah, tennis

00:01:39--> 00:01:40

by email.

00:01:42--> 00:02:37

And Allah Cooney, che you call the his command comes down between them why so that you may know that Allah is capable of anything and everything. So Allah Allah says he will Jalil created the seven heavens and the light COVID seven levels of the Earth as well and his command when it comes down between them why? Simply because he wants you to know that he is an ideal, he is able to do anything and everything what is that? What is that? That is a Josefa of Allah horrible is that you want a quality of Allah herbalist that you are jealous. So as you can see, he created the entire universe for mankind and jinn kind to get to know he herbalists that you want.

00:02:38--> 00:03:31

And when a person gets to know Allah subhana wa Tada and gets to realize how great this being that he is meant to render his worship to is that naturally a person goes before Allah subhanahu wa Tada with humility with servitude with the ability to think of how great Hola Hola buenas that you will gel and concentration, connectivity. Why? Because you know whom you're standing before you know whom you're connected to. If I were to tell you that you got a destination, idyllic destination, beautiful beach, there is the offish there, there is clarity, you can see through the water as though it's glass, you come out of your room and you jump into the water. You look forward to the

00:03:31--> 00:03:38

journey, you begin to think of how amazing it's going to be you become excited for that journey.

00:03:39--> 00:04:28

As opposed to just saying that you know what you need to come on to this path because at the end of the road, there's something nice for you. You don't know what you have coming to. So what we do is we call people to Salah, we call people to the zakah we call people to see them and Hajj and all of these good acts of worship, but they don't know whom they are rendering those acts of worship for. So ultimately they don't realize that this is the being the magnanimity of Allah Allah bless that he will tell when Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam went to converse with Allah who believes that you will Jellal we find that Allah subhanahu wa taala started in every Allah, he introduced himself with the

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

Greatest Name of Allah subhanho wa Taala the name that encompasses all of the names Allah, the One worthy of worship, I am Allah La ilaha IL Ana, there is no being except for me. Farah Bhutanese worship me we're happy Miss Salah tele decree and establish the salah for my remembrance for my remembrance make sure you establish that Salah What did Allah subhanahu wa Tada begin with? Did he just told us

00:05:00--> 00:05:55

Sir worship Me, encourage others command others to worship me know Allah started by saying I am Allah. You see so when we tell people whom Allah Allah bless that you will Jalil is what his qualities are like they look forward to that worship. The hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in early Lajitas atan what is Enos? Ma? Indeed Allah has 99 names me attend Illa Heda 100 Except for one man saw her devil Janna, the one who encompasses these names, you will enter into Jana, how we usually translate that is that we say to the people, you memorize those names, you will enter into Jana. So you find that there are a lot of people who memorize 99 names of the names of

00:05:55--> 00:06:48

Allah subhanho wa taala, assuming that that will enter them into Jannah. But the Hadith doesn't say men has the law, it says Men spa, the one who encompasses those names, what does encompassing involve? It involves you understanding those names, looking through them, trying to practice upon them in a very humanly fashion. And then you have a chance at Jana. Hola. Hola. Buenas that you will Jellal wants you to get to know him. Secondly, there is a misunderstanding with regards to the names of Allah subhanahu Attallah we assume that they are only 99 Because of this hadith. And that is not accurate. Why? Because if we count the names that are in the Quran, and in the Sunnah, they are way

00:06:48--> 00:07:34

more than 99. So this has to do with those who encompass the 99 names of Allah subhanho wa taala, they will achieve the reward which is L Jana. So it is like me coming to you and saying I have $100 for sadaqa it doesn't mean that I have only $100 but that 100 is for sadaqa. So this is the understanding of the Hadith, the most correct understanding of the Hadith, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has more than 99 names, but the one who memorizes understands implements those 99 or any 99 of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala will enter intuition. You see Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam makes this very clear. It's clear to us in a hadith

00:07:36--> 00:08:34

where he says that Allahumma inni as Aaloo can be policemen Wallach Oh Allah, I asked you with every name that belongs to some major beginning of sick you give yourself that name, oh and Zelda who vikita Arabic or you said that they named down in your book or Ananda who had them in Celtic or you taught that to one of your creation and digital Quran allow the Mallaby after you be that you make the Quran. The spring of my heart were Nora Saudi and the light of my chest were Gela whose knee and the removal of my sorrow Allahu Akbar, you see that dua was made by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and at the end of it, in fact, where he is asking he says, Oh is 33 If you really mean very,

00:08:34--> 00:09:23

very in that not only all of your boy names yeah Allah, but the names that you haven't even told us about your Allah. I call out to you with those names of bullies that you are general. And then he says, for you to make the Quran the spring of my heart. And this hadith is profound. Why? Because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that the one who says it in the morning and the one who says it in the evening, Allah will remove the anxiety how will he remove the anxiety by the Quran which is none other than the word of Allah Allah, Allah is that you are gentle, and touch are in Quran Allah Halima Allah be I can be that you make the Quran, the spring of my heart. What is the

00:09:23--> 00:10:00

Quran? None other than words that Allah Allah bull is that he will Jalil spoke to Gibreel. arranger Salatu was Salam. So when you read, the voice is yours, but the words you are reading our words of Allah horrible is that you will gentle they belong to him, he spoke them. Allah Allahu Akbar. Bear that in mind. This is a cifra a quality of Allah subhanho wa taala. Now, when we want to understand how to implement the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala in our lives, someone

00:10:00--> 00:10:15

may come to us and say hold on, but Allah is very different to us. Allah subhanahu wa taala is not like us in any way whatsoever and this is absolutely true. Like you said, Kenneth Lee che

00:10:17--> 00:11:11

was semi bossy. There is nothing similar unto Him and He is the All Hearing the all thing. So Allah Allah believes that you will Joab starts by saying there is nothing similar unto him and then he says, He is the old hearing the old saying, but we also hear and we also see, so Allah subhanho wa Taala is drawing his attention, our attention to the fact that he is all hearing all saying, You see when the woman who came to complain to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about her husband came and she was complaining. Isha was in the room while the Allahu anha and she couldn't hear this woman's complaint. It was so silent, but Allah subhanahu Attallah says, that is me Allah Golan Leti

00:11:11--> 00:12:03

to Jana, you know, Kathy's and Gina, what's ash Jackie Elam Allah you Allah. Yes, now to have a coma. Allah has heard the complaint of the woman who is complaining about her husband from where from above the seven heavens. You see how complete the hearing of Allah Allah bless that you will Jalan was or is you see? I Isha who was in the room human being she can't hear the complaint, the conversation that's going on between the woman and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but Allah from above the seven heavens. Here's the complaint. This is how complete his hearing is. This is how complete his sight is. You know, to explain this to us, the scholars say that the sight of Allah

00:12:03--> 00:12:51

subhanahu Attallah is so perfect that if a black ant was to walk on a black rock in a dark night, Allah who believes that you will Jelena sees its footsteps, Allah subhanahu wa taala hears the footsteps of that and Allah Akbar. If you just think of that, you realize how power how perfect Allah subhanahu Attallah is in his names and his attributes. Now, to understand the names and the qualities and how to implement them into our lives in a very humanly fashion. There is an Arabic saying, We're Bill Mithali at Toby Hooli makan. And with examples, the principles are explained, it becomes easy, it becomes simple for us to understand. So we'll go through a few names of Allah

00:12:51--> 00:13:42

subhanahu Attallah that we regularly interact with, as a principle for us to understand whenever you come to AMA look at it, and try to understand how to implement it and some are so unique that you can't implement them. What do you do you call out to Allah subhanahu Attallah with those names, and that is your implementation. But first and foremost, we begin with a Rahim. Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Especially Merciful. Now why do we say Especially Merciful? Usually when we talk about our Rahim, we say, Allah man, you know him, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. That's what we translate this as, but in reality, he is the All Merciful Anwar man merciful to those who believe in

00:13:42--> 00:14:30

Him merciful to those who don't believe in Him, merciful to the disbelievers, the animals, the creation, the rest of the creation of Allah subhanahu Attallah, all of creation while it was the article Lashay my ArcMap has encompassed everything. And our Rahim refers to the fact that Allah subhanahu Attallah is especially merciful to those who acknowledge Him, those who worship Him, those who believe in Him, so that Rama is reserved for those who render themselves in the lives and the rituals for Allah subhanho wa taala. And this is the difference between the two types of Rama now.

00:14:31--> 00:15:00

He is something that we all feel it's something that we feel in our hearts, especially when it comes to our children. And those who literally Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed Allah number four in our hearts, so our children, our mothers, our fathers, our family members. Now, to make this clear, let's go to the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is passing by a woman was suckling her

00:15:00--> 00:15:51

A child and he says to the Sahaba, a Tarragona Javi here party Hatton, well, are they happy now? Do you see this woman throwing her child into the fire? So they say absolutely not here rasool Allah impossible that you throw the child into the fire in the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, Allah is more unlikely to throw you into the fire than this woman is to throw a child into the fire. Allahu Akbar. What does that show us? The great right now of Allah subhanho wa taala. This woman is suckling her child. Look at the tender moment that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam chooses to highlight the OCMA of Allah subhanho wa taala, she is more likely and first to

00:15:51--> 00:16:37

throw her child into the fire before Allah subhanho wa Taala throws you O in son into the fire, Allahu Akbar. And this relationship is highlighted for a reason. If we look at our children, and we pay attention to our relationship between them, you will come to realize that you stop your child from doing things that you don't want them to do because it is harmful to them. So you stop that child Don't go to the fire, it will burn you don't do this, it will hurt you. You might rescue falling down so don't do that. You keep telling them these things the child wants to do it. You want the child to be happy but you stop that child from doing that simply because you know it is harmful

00:16:37--> 00:16:58

to them. Allahu Akbar and for Allah He is the highest of examples. He stops us from Zina from hammer from haram from all of this why? Because at the end of it is the fire. Oh in son, I love you enough. Don't go to that. Don't go to that. Yeah. Are you hell you said

00:17:00--> 00:17:56

we can carrying a Larry one o'clock FSM work and father like Allah Allahu Akbar. Oh in the sun. What is it that has taken you away from your most kind Lord, what is it that has taken you away from him, the One who created you and made you into a perfect posture, Allahu Akbar. So where we can have Rama we need to have Rama and hence we are enacting a name of Allah subhanho wa Taala in our lives in a very humanly fashion. So the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala is a Rahim and we can also have Rama does not mean that we are similar to him in any way whatsoever because we've seen the great Rama of Allah subhanho wa Taala and how perfect it is the next name and Jolene. Allah horrible is that he

00:17:56--> 00:18:30

will Gela is the most beautiful, the most beautiful and Eman comes to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or he's sitting with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells him lie ahead all janma mankind if he Calbee him if God had met him in Kibera, no person will enter intuition was even the atom's weight of arrogance in their heart. So the man misunderstands and he says well, Kim bot

00:18:32--> 00:19:26

who you hit one year cornetta Whoo hoo Hassan wanna Lou Hudson but a human being loves for his job to be good and his shoes to be good. He loves to look good. Your soul Allah so the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in Allah Hi Jamil when you hit bull Jamal, indeed Allah is beautiful, and he loves beauty as well. So when you do that, you're exemplifying a quality of Allah subhanahu Attallah beautify not only the outside, but the inside as well. You know when you look into the mirror, what is the dua that you read? Allahu mahasin hood up comm center healthy Oh ALLAH purify beautify my insight in the manner that you have beautified the outside. Why? Simply because

00:19:26--> 00:19:59

you are telling Allah you've created me in the best of postures, a beautiful nose beautiful eyes beautiful face and all of this and we are all beautiful we need to understand this. We are all beautiful regardless of what some people tell us out there so what's that do ah to end it off, beautify the inside as well. Yeah, Allah I don't want to be a shell. I don't want to go out there looking like a doll but my inside is disgusting. My inside is dirty. I can't grieve

00:20:00--> 00:20:46

People nicely I can't smile at people. I can't treat people well, I have to abuse them. Don't make me like that. Yeah, Allah, which moment has Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam chosen for you, the moment that you look into that mirror, and you're putting on makeup, Allahu Akbar, what does the what does the, you know, makeup industry or some of the people from amongst them? Or some of the people in society? What do they tell you? You're ugly, you're ugly. So you need to put on that which makes makes you look like a model. But what does Allah subhanahu wa taala tell you, he's telling you I created during the best of forms, you are as beautiful as they come. Don't believe these people

00:20:46--> 00:21:31

who are telling you that you're ugly. They're playing in on your insecurities. And why simply because they need to earn some money from you. Not some actually, it's a lot of money that they earn from you. You know, if you take a look at what people spend on makeup today, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, you could probably save up to make a down payment on a house. Honestly, like literally, that's how bad that's how bad they have made you believe that you wrangly that you cannot step out of the home unless you dolled up unless you doll up and you look amazing, now, I'm comfortable. I'm confident I can walk out there. It's not about attracting other people. It's not about sexualizing

00:21:31--> 00:21:54

yourself with society today. It's about being presentable. They've made you so insecure, that you need to be blasted Wallahi and I know this woman and I know it was okay for me to look at her before you guys say anything, you know, right? She would go out there. And she came from a religious family. So she would go out there and put on makeup and I saw her coming one day and I said hey, really?

00:21:55--> 00:22:40

Subhanallah I'm a bit surprised, you know, and I, I addressed the issue. And she said to me Wallahi it has nothing to do with me trying to attract other people. I just feel so insecure. Yet if you looked at her, she was as beautiful as they come without the makeup. Allahu Akbar. Really, society itself deemed her to be a beautiful looking a good looking woman. Yet she had to put on makeup before she exited. Why? Because the world is judging me. Is that something? Is that something really that we should be doing as Muslims? Is that something let alone the Muslims? Is that something that society should be doing to our young girls daughters and even today the males who put on makeup

00:22:40--> 00:23:31

Allahu Akbar. Really and truly Allah subhanahu wa taala created new Janeen you hit bull Jamal, He created you beautiful because he himself is beautiful. So don't ever believe that you are ugly. Know that Allah subhanahu wa taala created you in the best of postures left as a HELOC on an in Santa Fe Sani Dental wiem I have created mankind in the best of postures. You want to please Allah subhanho wa Taala when you go to the masjid, where the best of perfume and you put on the best of clothes and do this for Allah, you know, I know a woman. In fact, I can tell you or maybe I shouldn't tell you who she is. Maybe she doesn't want to be exposed in this manner not exposed but let me tell you what

00:23:31--> 00:23:56

she does. When she goes to the masala when she goes to the masala she puts on perfume in her own home. She puts on perfume. Why? Because I'm going to Allah Who believes that you will Joanne, if I can put on perfume for my peers and my friends. Then what about Rob bull is that you will Jarrell he told us Yeah, then he had Mr. Hulu's email tekun

00:23:58--> 00:24:51

msgid Oh, buddy, Adam, take your beauty or adornment at every place of prayer. Your Masjid if you're praying at home is the house. So when you go to Allah subhanho wa Taala to break pray, then take your adornment why? Because I want to beautiful for Allah Hara bullies that you're jealous. I want to smell good for Allah, Allah bullies that you are jealous. I won't just come and pray in any clothes. So look at that intimate relationship between you and Rob will is that he will gel in that quality of Al Jamal which is beauty for Allah herbalists that you will Jellal This brings me to a city. A city means the one who covers he covers people's mistakes. He covers their sins, and He gave

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

them the ability to have shame such that they cover themselves with clothes as well. So Allah Allah bless

00:25:00--> 00:25:48

that you will GLL covers you so long as you cover yourself. And this is something that is very pertinent today. Why? Because in the day of exposure, where we cannot do anything good or bad regardless of what it is, except in front of a camera, except on Tiktok and on Instagram and everything else, we need to draw our attention to the fact that Allah subhanahu Attallah is the one who covers so long as we cover ourselves, what do we go, what do we do? We go out there, and we stand in front of a camera and we dance and we do all sorts of things in front of that camera. Are you really ready to dance before Allah police that you enjoy? And have you thought of the fact that

00:25:48--> 00:26:35

you will leave this world and those videos will stay up online and you will continue to earn the hunger of Allah subhanho wa Taala Have you thought of that? Dear brother, dear sister think 10 times before you click that button on your phone and start to do things in front of the camera. Is this pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala Well, I get the color of Allah subhana wa Taala on the day of piano could loom Murthy, Martha, all of my ummah is forgiven all of them. Ill Mujahideen except for those who go out and expose themselves. It's different when a man sits in the cover of his home in a room and he commits a sin and a man who goes out there into the street and boisterously openly does

00:26:35--> 00:27:22

it in society, there is a huge difference between the two. One cares about Allah subhana wa taala. So he is ashamed of what he's doing. So he hates for the rest of his creation, to see him doing that which is displeasing to his maker, but he is weak. So he goes and he hides himself. Good Luma Timo Hapa in Al Mujahideen, except for those who expose themselves the man who goes out into the streets and says, I don't care about Allah subhanahu wa Tada. Today, you don't need to go out into the street. What do we do? We don't only expose it to our street and our locality and our community. But we switch on the camera and expose it to the world. get millions of views. That's the point. You've

00:27:22--> 00:28:10

won if you got 2 million, 5 million 10 million views. That's what the world is about today. It's about the likes and the views and the shares yet the only view that you're supposed to be cared about is Allah Hora Bucha is that you are jealous. Did you remember every single view except for Allah Habilis that you will? Jalon? Really, really? And I say this passionately because I feel for you brothers, sisters that go out there and expose themselves. Did you forget that Allah is watching you? Did you forget that? Really, the time is coming and it may even be tomorrow. It may be the next moment you put that phone down and your eyes roll up into the back of your head. And what's

00:28:10--> 00:28:14

happened? You've come before Allah or bullies that you are.

00:28:15--> 00:28:20

You've that veil of this dunya is after uplifted, it's gone.

00:28:21--> 00:29:07

And you're now into the Alpha. Are you ready to stand before Allah subhanahu Attallah with that sin think 2 million times before you press that button. Think 5 million times before you press that button Think before you ink as they say don't just do because they say just do it. Think before you leave a digital imprint and an imprint on the Akira as well. Remember that digital imprint is not only in this dunya it will last into your grave and into the era as well. Cool Luma Timo alpha, il mucha hurry in all of my ummah, he's forgiven, you've done something wrong, you haven't sought forgiveness, you have a chance at the forgiveness of Allah subhanahu wa taala. Why because of this

00:29:07--> 00:29:37

hadith, because of the Hadith of the man who comes with only La Ilaha illa Allah the only good deed that he had done in his life, Allah who gives him enters in him into Jannah. The hadith of Allah or Buddha is that you are jealous or the Hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that a man will come on the day of PM. So you will feel why Allah you cannot. So Allah subhanahu wa taala will place a cover between him and the people. Why? Yo man to well as

00:29:39--> 00:29:40

your own family.

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

You want to announce it on the day that the secrets will be exposed. Everybody else is out in front of the billions of people taking their hisab giving their hisab you will be covered. Why? Because you covered yourself

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

So Allah Allah believes that you will Jalil will have a private conversation with this person. So you can liro Allah who will be who will be. So Allah subhanahu Attallah will make him acknowledge you commit this. You committed the sin. Yes, you're committed that sin Yes, I have done ETL or B. And then he says I'd set out to Allah Caffee dunya for ha ha luckily own, I covered you in the dunya. So here I am forgiving you today Allahu Akbar. And then all that the people see is you come out of that cover and you enter into Jana, Allahu Akbar, who is this, a man will never sought forgiveness for the sins that he committed in this world. But he was so ashamed that he covered

00:30:42--> 00:31:22

himself, he hid away from the camera. He didn't turn the camera on before committing that sin because He knew that Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching him. There are so many a hadith that give us hope of the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala but one thing that can guarantee you that you won't get it is exposing yourself. So don't expose yourself and if you have you still have a chance. Why because you're breathing you're living. You're alive and kicking. Turn to Allah Allah Buddha. Is that what general that's all and this brings us to our last and final name in sha Allah. Well in Nila Lehmann,

00:31:24--> 00:31:25

me Lasallian

00:31:28--> 00:32:11

Tada and indeed I am the one who forgives over and over and over again, to whom those who believe and those who actually do good deeds and then they are righteously guided Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives them again and again. And again. What does this mean? It is not like iPhone which is not like Allahu it means that He is Allah far, the one who forgives again and again. Why because the servant goes back to the sin again and again and every time he goes back to the sin, he seeks forgiveness of Allah subhanahu Attallah sincerely. This is what the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us

00:32:14--> 00:32:25

as in a baboon, zambon Fatah Allah, Allah Who McFeely a servant has committed a sin. So he says, Oh ALLAH forgive me.

00:32:27--> 00:33:17

forgot Allah so Allah subhanho wa Taala says Ali Mab de Anala, who are Bernier, who will be them be wild fear with them, the Todra for Tula who my servant knows that he has a lord that is most forgiving, most merciful and he has a load that will punish and that can punish, so I have forgiven him to me. Then he goes back to the sin and he commits it again. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says again, that I have forgiven him my servant knows that he has a load that punishes and he has a load that will give, I forgiven him soon, ma then he goes back to the sin. Every time he goes back to the sin, he seeks forgiveness of Allah subhanahu wa taala at the end of that hadith, Allah Allah Buddha

00:33:17--> 00:34:07

is that he will Jellal says, hell yeah, Mel ma Shah, let him do as he pleases, because I know that every time he commits a sin, He will turn back to Me, Allah Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. This means that this name is so easy for us to interact with, every time you commit a sin, know that you can gain closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala by seeking forgiveness, sincerely, intending to never go back to the sin, you commit it again. Turn back to Allah subhanho wa Taala again, why because the sin literally means that you commit a sin, the name, the name of Allah, Allah believes that you will Jellal Allah means that you commit the sin again and again and again and turn back to him and turn

00:34:07--> 00:34:56
