Illa Allah al Amin Wahby Hina starin autosol Liana Sal imala Tamil Gambia you will mursaleen Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Ultramarine Allahu Allah azza wa jal tahu Salah one teta Jarel Husna, either Tessa Allah or BSC wala to acyl whatever may have been here we can start in. We thank Allah subhanahu wa Attallah, for having gathered us here today. And we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala, to surround us with the melodica and to cause his mercy and his Sakina to descend upon us, and to raise us with the MBR alayhi wa salatu salam, and those whom he has mentioned with them, I mean,
He is Allah.
He is the One who created myself and yourself. He created these islands of the Maldives. He created the water that is beyond, he created the entire universe, and the skies that are beyond Allah subhanahu wa taala created everything in existence. The question I have for yourselves and myself, my Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam is why do we then not know who Allah subhanahu Attallah is
created all of this that is in existence for his remembrance, and for us to know him and recognize him? So then why is it that we don't know his names, his attributes, His qualities, His characteristics?
Allah subhanahu wa Allah says Allah who led the Halacha Saba Osama what Allah is the One who created the seven heavens one minute of the Mithila Hoon, and he created from the earth the life of it, seven Earths as well, yet another Amma Rubina Hoon, the Command of Allah subhanahu wa Tada comes down between the seven heavens and these seven Earths. Why? Why do these commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala come down between the seven heavens and the seven Earths Lita ilevel and Allah Allah Cooley che in Cadiz, so that you may know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is able to do anything and everything. So that you may know
that Allah subhanahu Attallah is able to do anything and everything. He created the seven heavens, he created the seven Earths and he caused his command to come down between them for what for us to know that he is capable over everything. This is a quality of Allah subhanho wa Taala errorlevel
know No, and Allah Hersha de douleur cob, let Allah subhanahu wa taala is Severe in punishment. One Allah Allah fool Rahim and Allah subhanho wa Taala is most forgiving, Most Merciful.
Lm mu n Allah, as he soon Hakim know that Allah subhanahu wa taala is as he is, and he is most wise, Allah subhanahu wa Tada himself is telling us to know that he is most wise.
Why? Because he wants us to know who he is He created us in order for us to know who he is the Gambia from the beginning of time came with three main messages. Number one
they wanted us to know or Allah subhanahu Attallah sent them to us in order for us to know who Allah subhanahu Attallah is.
And secondly, in order to know how to get to Allah subhanho wa Taala what is the path to that Rob that you now know that Rob that you now recognize? And the third is when a person has reached Rob boulerice that he will Jellal then what is to come after the death? What is to come after we meet Allah subhanho wa Taala will there be everlasting bliss or will there be everlasting hellfire?
So Allah subhanahu wa
that created us, in order for us to know Him. And if we take a look at the subject that we want to discuss, then we will come to realize that the subject matter is none other than Rob Boulez that he will Jellal my maker, your make, the make of everything. So, there is no knowledge that can be better than that which Allah Subhana Allah subhanho wa Taala has instructed us to know and to learn.
He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He taught us everything.
He taught us how to eat. He taught us how to begin eating. When it came to the matter of talking, then he taught us how to talk. He taught us how to walk. In fact, he taught us how to relieve ourselves when we go to the bathroom. Do we think that he would then leave out the description of Rob Boulez that he will, Joanne that he would disregard this, that he would leave it in totality rather, this is the most important thing. And this is why we find that Allah subhanahu Attallah says in nama Shala mean arriba de la rue de ma. Indeed those who know are the most God fearing of Allah subhanho wa Taala because when a person becomes conscious of who are bullies that he will Jalil is,
he is a Sameer. He is Aleem, he is Al bossy, he is Al hakam he is Aladdin. Then a person naturally holds the fear of Allah subhanahu wa taala in his heart, and as a result, the taste of his very bad completely changes. Because when you say Allah Allahu Akbar, Allah is the only one worthy of worship Allah He is the greatest then you realize that I am standing before this huge, amazing, most powerful being.
So the entire taste of your a bad changes when you know who Allah subhanho wa Taala is.
you have some people
who actually come into this world and they spend their entire lives not knowing who Allah subhanho wa Taala is, what kind of a life this person must lead the anxiety that comes with it, the depression that comes with it, the sorrow and the remorse, the grief that comes with it. And I'm not saying that all of the depression and all of the mental illnesses are because of this reason. But try to think
that we were created for the sake of the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala and to know Him. Now if a person were to ignore this completely,
then imagine what will happen to him. The airport says nothing for that car. Hi, sushi terminal Hauer let your heart roam around. Place it wherever you want, of desire. Whatever you desire, you want to put your heart with your family place it with your family. You want to place it with your friends place it with your friends, you want to put it into your business put it into your business, not kill for the cat Hi sushi terminal how're malham Boo Habibi, Awali your heart and your love will only be for the first love
your heart and your love will only be for Allah subhanho wa Taala no matter where you place it, you will not find contentment you will not find peace, man hobo lil Habibi Awali commensal in fill out the left who will Fatah how many homes does a young man find in his life that he is able to live in is able to reside within well honey Enugu a burden Lee Oh aware Lehmann Zhi Li, yet his longing is always for the first home.
Allah subhanho wa Taala created us with this longing for him. Allah subhanho wa Taala created us for what this? What this wants to know Him. And when we ignore that, and when we leave that we find that our lives become depressing. Our lives become full of anxiety and anxiousness. You
Find a person go out there and he does not understand what he is doing in his life. Why is it that you find the most successful? The in terms of our terms? Were you talking about those who have the most wealth? Those who have the most faith? Why is it that you find from amongst them are people who end up committing suicide?
Why? If that was everything, and if they had reached what we feel is the pinnacle of life, the most wealth they can have the most fame they can have. Then why is it that they commit suicide because they are not happy there is something lacking and missing in their hearts and that is Allah subhanahu Attallah that is Allah subhanho wa taala.
When a person brings into his understanding, that Allah subhanahu wa taala is watching over everything that he says Allah subhanho wa Taala years everything that he says, then naturally this person will be conscious of Allah subhanho wa taala. So Allah subhanahu Attallah says, Maria Cooney, Nigel worth Allah 13 in who are via whom there is no secret of three people except that Allah subhanho wa Taala is default one a setting in who was this who whom and there is no secret between five people except that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the sixth one.
In Who am I am a colonel and there is no group that is less than that and there is no group that is more than that, except that he is with them
from a unit B oho beam army ru Yahoomail T.
Then he will inform them of that which they were doing on the day of the AMA
in the Lucha Bhikkhu Lishi in Eileen, indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is all knowing of everything. When a person realizes this then even if he is having a secret between him and the next man he is talking very silently, a few words that he utters very silently, he realizes that Allah Allah is that you will learn here's Allah subhanho wa Taala knows what he is saying. So naturally, that consciousness of Allah subhanahu Attallah comes about in the heart, a woman at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
She came complaining to the messenger salAllahu alayhi wa sallam, about her husband, she was having problems with him. And she came to complain to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about him.
And do you know what happened?
Allah subhanahu wa taala revealed verses regarding that woman. And he says that the semi Allah Who co Leti to De Luca Fiza, Allah subhanahu wa taala has heard of the one who is complaining to you regarding her husband, what hashtag ki il Allah and she is
complaining to Allah subhanho wa Taala from above the seven heavens, Allah subhanho wa Taala heard everything that happened and he responded to it.
When a person reads and understands the names of the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala then naturally he becomes fearful and the know of Allah subhanho wa taala. And when he reads the names that have to do with knowledge, and that have to do with the love and the aroma of Allah subhanho wa Taala he begins to love Allah subhanho wa Taala and when he hears the names that have to do with the generosity of Allah subhanho wa Taala then his heart, please with Allah subhanho wa Taala for that generosity, so this is the benefit of actually learning the names and the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala in sha Allah today we will be discussing the first and most important name and the
Greatest Name of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is the name Allah.
The name Allah is the Greatest Name of Allah subhana wa Tada and the proof of this is in the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
where a man was called
Now to Allah subhanahu Attallah using this name
and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells him that laquered CELTA Allah, you have asked Allah subhanahu wa taala me with the greatest of names, I love you levy either su e levy a job, the one by which when he is called out to he responds when either there are who and when a person calls out to him, then Allah subhanahu Attallah answers his call. So, this is the Greatest Name of Allah subhana wa Tada and Allah subhanahu wa Tada. He says, who Allah who led the La ilaha illa who He is Allah, the One whom there is no one worthy of worship besides him. Al Malik al could Deuce a Salem, Al McMinn Elmo Haman, Allah Aziz al Jabbar, Al mucha Kabir, Allah subhanahu wa taala begins by his
name, Allah, and then he continues to explain the rest of these names and Malik al produce
a Salam, Al Bachmann so on and so forth. Now, when a person talks in normal day to day conversations, you will say that from the names of Allah subhanho wa taala, from the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala R. R Rahman r Rahim, Al Malik al produce a Salam Al wokmon Al Mohammed, but you will never say from the names of our Rahman
Al Malik, you will never say that the names of Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah, Allah, the name of Allah subhanahu Attallah Allah belongs to our Rahman, it belongs to Al Malik, it belongs to produce why? Because this name Allah, all of the names of Allah subhanahu Attallah, they lead up to this name, Allah.
When it comes to the car, and the remembrance of Allah subhanahu Attallah then a person, if we want to glorify Allah subhanho wa Taala then we will say Subhana Allah, we will say Al hamdu lillah we will say, Allah Allahu Akbar. So it includes the huge and this Greatest Name of Allah subhanho wa taala. That is Allah. This name is mentioned in the Quran more than 2200 times. It is so powerful, that a person who has a little bit of wealth, if he mentions this name, and he asks Allah subhanho wa Taala with this name, then Allah subhanho wa Taala makes it more if a person calls out to Allah subhanahu Attallah in fear with this name, yeah, Allah. Then Allah subhanahu Attallah removes the
fear, when a person has harm and difficulty in his life. And he calls out to Allah subhanahu wa taala with this name, then Allah subhana who attacks harm and that difficulty, a person who is poor, who has nothing. And he calls out Yeah, Allah, then Allah subhanho wa Taala grants him so much richness and wealth that he cannot imagine. So this name is a very powerful name that we can use to call out to Allah subhanho wa taala.
When Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam was lost in the desert.
And he saw a fire in the distance.
Then he told his family he says look, you wait here and I am going out to this fire la li edgy do
Allah Nari Houda perhaps I will be able to find some guidance at the fire.
So he began to move to this fire. And when he got to the fire, then he found that there was a voice that called out to him. No dia Musa. This voice called out to him Oh Musa in the book. Indeed I am Europe facula lake so remove your shoes, in a terrible word will move the co2 Ah, indeed you are in the valley of Toba the Sacred Valley of tour. What took and I have chosen you he received the reseller from Allah subhanho wa taala. First me Halima you have so listen to that we
Jesus being revealed. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says in many and Allah, indeed I am Allah, La isla.
There is no being worthy of worship besides me. Farah moodini so worship Me. Welcome your Salah tele victory and establish the salah for my remembrance. This is Allah subhanahu wa taala naming himself Allah. This is Allah subhanahu wa Tada calling himself by the name Allah, and he is telling us, La ilaha illa Allah, when you have recognized that I am Allah, then understand that there is no one worthy of worship besides me for botany, so worship Me. So this name Allah leads us to the worship of Allah subhanho wa taala. And it leads us to the understanding of who rob bola is that he will Jellal really is.
if we come into our lives, and we take a look at how the problems we have the difficulties we have a times we find ourselves so lost.
We don't seem to understand which path to follow, where to go.
And which road to take. This is similar to how, but obviously Musa alayhis salatu salam was lost in a physical manner. It is similar to him but he was lost in a physical manner. Obviously he knew Allah subhanahu ATOD if we are lost in our lives, and we have lost the path,
remember that the light of the Quran is always there. The light of this revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala is there. And if we go back to this revelation, we will find that the answer is in this verse. And it is in the verses of Allah subhana wa Tada in many and Allah indeed I am Allah, La ilaha illa Allah, there is no one worthy of worship besides me. The only way that we will find clarity, the only way that we will find peace, the only way that we will find contentment is by going back to Allah subhanho wa taala. So this verse actually brings us closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. The next name that we will discuss today in sha Allah
is our Rob.
And the word or rob originally comes from the master of something.
So the Arabs would call the master of a house or a bull bait. He would call they would call the master of a slave, the hub of this servant, they would call the master of something or the owner of something that rod BUSA Yara, for example, the owner or the master of this car. Now imagine when that Rob is Rob bull al Amin, the rub of the worlds and everything that it contains. And when it comes to people mentioning love for another person, then we will only use this in attachment to something else we cannot say that he is
never. We can only say that he is the hub and the master of the house. He is the hub and the master of the car. But when we talk about Allah subhanahu Attallah then we can actually say he is our love.
He is deal and this name Rob literally includes all of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala He is the Creator. He is the sustainer he is the Cherisher he is the Nareesha so all of the names of Allah subhanahu Attallah lead to a rub, when a person is in dire need.
Then Allah subhanho wa Taala he says
G will not thorough either.
As for the one who responds to the person who is in dire need when he calls out to him why she feels so and he removes the evil where John will come cooler
and he makes you the successes on Earth. Isla Houma Allah is the a rub with Allah is the a lord with Allah subhanho wa Taala who is the one who calls who is the one who helps you out when you are in dire need. Indeed it is Allah subhanho wa Taala there are two types of tarbiyah
There are two types of tarbiyah, which is originally from this word or rob. And we all know that tarbiyah refers to the looking after the nurturing of someone. The first type of tarbiyah has to do with everyone. Allah subhanho wa Taala looks after the kaffir he looks after the disbeliever he looks after the mushrik in terms of sustaining him, in terms of
providing him with security. Allah subhanahu wa taala looks after him. So he is a ROB. And when it comes to the second type of tarbiyah, then that tarbiyah is only for those who acknowledge him. Only for those who acknowledge that he is the more upbeat, he is the one who looks after the be the people. He is the one who is deserving of the worship of Allah subhanho wa taala. So he grants them Eman. He grants them he the higher He grants them righteousness and the telkwa office, the consciousness of his. So this is the second type of tarbiyah. When Musa his Salatu was Salam
had gone to Medina, he was fleeing from the wretched Pharaoh. And he went to Medina.
And he found that there was people that were watering the sheep. So these people were watering the sheep and there was two women that were standing on the side. So he went up to them and he says Mahatma Coleman. What is it? That is your situation? Why are you standing on the side? So they told him that we have an old father at home who cannot help us to come and water our sheep. So we are waiting until the shepherds will leave her tell us there are Leah until the shepherds leave. So Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam. He immediately goes and he waters the sheep for these two young ladies. And then he goes back and this is the point where we have to take note he does not ask these two
ladies you know I am in need. I flow have fled from a pharaoh that was oppressing me rather he goes back Fatah wala de la ville de Takala be in nee Lima and delta la Yemin Hierin
he says he goes back to the shade and he says what be oh my Rob indeed I am in dire need of any goodness that you sent down to me and he uses this name or
He is literally telling Allah subhanahu wa Tada that yes I know that I have helped out these women here but I did not help them out for their sake I help them out for your Seiko Allah
I know that you are the only one that can help me so oh my Rob here I am. You have placed me in this situation. You have placed me in this dire need. So Oh, my hub. Oh, my maker who has placed me in this dire need help me out here. This was Musa alayhis salam to Salam with Allah su
ah when he called out using the name up, here are be
Allah subhanahu Attallah sent the help to him. He didn't even need to go out looking for that help. It came to him directly from Allah subhanho wa taala. He sent these ladies and this woman came back asking him that in a be there okay. Leah Z ICAgile Rama SATA italiana. My father is calling you to grant you the reward of that which you have helped us to water our sheep. So this was direct help from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Because Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam called out to Allah subhanho wa Taala his maker with the name. If we want help in our lives, if we want our situation to improve, if we want our lives to get get better, then we have got to call out to Allah subhanho wa Taala with
his glorious names and his beautiful names. And this is why he says well, Illa Hill, Asma UL Husna and it is for Allah subhanahu Attallah that the glorious names belong to federal who behind so call out to Him with them. We ask Allah subhanahu Attallah with all of his glorious names to help us and to grant us the ability
to call out to him time and again, I mean masala Allah who was Elena albaraka ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge may
