Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Illa Allah Alameen wa Venus Teryn also Leo to sell him Allah her Tamil Ambia even more Celine Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Ultramarine Allah Humala Salah in LA Magi Lita Husa Halawa antigen has an either she Tessa hella obvious through Allah to answer whatever mean bill here we can Esther in we thank Allah subhanahu wa taala for having gathered us here once again and we ask Allah subhanahu Attallah 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 wa sallam and those whom he has mentioned with them, I mean,
when it comes to the names of Allah subhanahu Attallah,
then all of the names of Allah subhanahu Attallah are good regardless of what they are. And this comes from the idea when Allah Hill USMA will Husna and belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala the best of names and Husna comes from us and
it is the plural of axon and axon means the best. So, Allah subhanho wa Taala has only good names they are the best of names, and he possesses no bad qualities and no bad names. Fedorov will be here, so call out to him using these names. So this is the reason why we learn these names of Allah subhanho wa Taala in order for us to understand how to worship Him and in order to use them to call out to non Buddhists that you will learn when it comes to the name alcoholic, then alcoholic has three stages alcoholic will bury will most aware
the first stage being the stage of planning, the second stage being the stage of execution in which Allah subhanahu wa Tada brings into existence from nothing. And the last stage has to do with the fashioning of the creatures of Allah subhanahu Attallah. So, Allah subhanahu Attallah plans with all of his infinite wisdom and knowledge, and then he brings into existence that which He wants to bring into existence in the manner and in the shape that he wants to bring that particular creature into existence. So this is the meaning of alcoholic al Abadi. Al Musab will Albury meaning the one who brings into existence from non existence and almost always the one who fashions
someone may ask that how does all of this happen? How does all of this come about? When it comes to the how part of these qualities of Allah subhanahu Attallah then he Subhana knows best. We don't understand exactly how this happens because none of us really saw Allah subhanahu wa Tada creating.
But we know that he creates because myself and yourself are here today. We are proof of the quality of creation of Allah subhanahu wa taala
Allah subhanahu wa Tada
when he wants to create then in number amogh, who is our the shaman and the Akula who could fire Khun when he wants to do something, then the matter is only for him to say can be and it is. So when Allah subhanahu wa Tada talks about creation then this is referring to the execution of that creation, the manner in which it was created. And this is why you find that when a human being plans
then sometimes he will plan something for five years. 10 years, 15 years 20 years. He will plan to build a home. He will plan to start a business
But at times he will not execute that plan. But Allah subhanahu Attallah never fails to execute. Kuhn for her Khun B and it is in existence he fashioned us. And Allah subhanahu Attallah mentions this after mentioning our creation, and this is why he says well after the head up the neck, and most definitely we created you, through muscle wanna come? Then we fashioned you from Nakula real Mela. It is Julie Adam. Then we told the melodica that prostrate to Adam alayhis Salatu was Salam. So Allah subhanahu wa taala mentions this in the sequence. So health is different to birth and birth is different to TestSuite. Because he planned, he brought into existence from nothing, and then he
fashioned. So Allah subhanahu Attallah creates in this manner, when a person
takes God's besides Allah subhanahu Attallah
then what this person is doing in reality is taking a being that was created from some matter and making that the object of his worship. Yet Allah subhanahu wa taala created from nothing. So he is deserving of that worship.
At the time of Masada, his Salatu was Salam when he had gone out
and he went to meet Allah subhanahu Attallah he went to speak to Allah subhanahu Uttara then there was a man known as a cemetery and cemetery decided that let me make a cough out of gold. And I will tell the people to worship the scarf. So Allah subhanahu Attallah he mentioned this and he says, Raja Allah Who?
Just Adela who
so Samiti he produced a car for them that had a moving sound. Farrakhan who had
ILA who more Isla Musa fantasy. So he said, This is your up, this is your Lord and the Lord of Musa and he forgot. He forgot that this was his Lord. So he was calling you to the one who creates from nothing. So he began to deceive the people and the people began to worship the scarf. So when Musa Hara your salatu salam got back he was very angry and he was sorrowful
that these people had been called to Allah subhanahu Attallah and his worship, they worshipped him and then they went back to worshipping a cough made out of gold. Now if we take a look at this situation, then we will come to realize that Sam Erie had brought a cough that was made out of substance something and that substance in reality was created by Allah subhanho wa taala. He is the one who placed the golden the earth for them to dig it up. And he then took this and fashion they cough in order to mislead the people with that which Allah subhanahu wa Tada had created.
And Allah subhanahu Attallah creates from nothing. So if these people were to look at the calf, and they were to think about Allah subhanahu Attallah, they would naturally realize, or we would think that they would realize that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the only one worthy of worship. They worship the calf. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
when you call me who sadly told me he Bomi in Macomb vollum tomb, full sack one bit DeCarli qumola Nigel Musa alayhis salam wa sallam told his people oh my people you have oppressed yourselves by taking the cough as a god for two Oh, Isla berry comb, so return and repent to Europe.
Repent to the One who created you from nothing. He uses this word battery, which means he created from nothing so he is the only one who deserves that worship.
I don't know. So where
is the last stage of creation
from the three stages of creation that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions? And he says who Allah
Who will Halle Berry almost aware,
the fashioner the one who designs the one who makes a human being into who he is by fashioning his nose the way it is his mouth the way it is his eyes, he splits open his face at this particular place, in order for him to be able to see. So, Allah subhanahu Attallah is the one who fashioned all of that. So, who are we then to go out in the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala and say he has a bulbous nose, he has bulging cheeks, she has very large ears, who are you and who gave you the right to do that? It he is almost always he is the fashion you know what we are doing in reality when we go out there and say she is ugly, he is ugly, we are insulting the fashion. We are insulting the
who Lee who made that particular creature. So, let us get rid of this mentality. Let us get rid of this ideology. It is only from Shaytaan that he comes to us and teaches us how to do this evil and this bad.
Allah subhanahu Attallah. He despises it when a human being goes out there and tries to sculpt something similar to his creation that is animate. That is animate.
So if we sculpt a tree for example, this is okay. If we sculpt a mountain for example, this is fine. You sculpt and you paint a picture of a river then this is okay. But the minute you begin to paint pictures of inanimate objects, human beings,
the animals that are there, then this is despised by Allah subhanahu Attallah because he is a muscle where he is the fashioner and this is why on the day of pm
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that in Alladhina Elsner una herb in your Surah You are the Borneo multi.
Suma you call ruler whom you must
indeed these people who call who sculpt these creatures or who paint these pictures, they will be punished on the day of the AMA.
And it will be told to them uma hudec to bring to life that which you have created, you felt you were the creator, you felt you were the fashion and designer. So, why don't you blow the life into that creature
because you are not a God, because you are not ILA you are not a hurry, you are not a buried elbow, so well. So, understand that. So, these are some of the characteristics of Allah subhanahu Attallah. Then we move on to the name of Malik, and Malik, Allah subhanahu Attallah describes himself as Al Malik. And we have the description of Al Malik with us as well. And this means, we usually translated to mean the king. But if we truly want to understand it, then this really means the one who possesses everything in existence and he does whatsoever he wishes, when he wishes, how he wishes, and there is no defense and no rejection of his command in any way whatsoever. Allah
subhanahu wa Tada
his kingdom means three things. It means three things. Number one, the affirmation of his qualities such as the supreme power, complete control, ultimate capacity, the encompassing knowledge and the rule of the lower, the lower and the higher realms of the dunya. And the
so this is the first stage of the kingdom of Allah subhanahu Attallah. The second stage is that all of creation are in need of Allah subhanho wa Taala regardless of whether those are the kings, or those are the servants, they are all in dire need of Allah subhanahu Attallah now if we pause for a moment, and we think about the kings
of this world, or should we rather say the tyrants of this world, because you have a man who inherited
A ruler who is just, but as for the tyrants of this world, you find that these tyrants think that they have authority, they have power, they have might, and whilst they are having these feelings within them, Allah subhanho wa Taala is in complete control, yet they do not realize, yet they do not perceive, they do not fathom. The Pharaoh was a person who said at one stage and our book Kumul earner I am you're up via highest worship me. He called to his worship.
He called to his worship that was the height of arrogance. Yet what happened? When the waves were closing down on him? And the water was coming crashing down on him? Why could he not tell the waves? Stop? Wait where you are? I am you're up the highest. Where did all of that power go? Where did all of that authority go? Where did all of that might go? It disappeared completely. Because he was not wrong.
He was not robbed. And all of a sudden, meant to be or be Musa.
I have believed in the hub of Musa and how goon Why do you believe in this hub yet you yourself? claimed you were
because now he saw the unseen. He saw the reality all along. He knew the reality. But he was so intoxicated with the power that he had, that he ignored that Allah subhanahu Attallah is the only being worthy of worship and all of a sudden he believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala but it is too late.
Now, there are also a tabula rasa terminal remove CD is it now? Is it now that you are believing in Allah subhana wa Tada. And you disobeyed before you disbelieved before and you were from those who are corrupt,
so it was too late. The message is simple. Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, no matter what position we hold, no matter what authority we hold, no matter what power we have. The ultimate power the ultimate position, the ultimate authority is for a bullet is that you will Jalon and when we understand this, then only truly we will be the servants of Allah subhanho wa taala. The third and final stage of the kingdom of Allah subhanahu Attallah is that all of the affairs belong to Him.
He is the One Who forgives the sins He is the one who opens up hardship he is the one who removes the sorrow he is the one who kills the sick. He is the one who honors the Dishonored and he is the one who dishonest those who are honorable and high up in status. Allah subhanahu Attallah says Puli la Hoon Mamadi Cal Malik say He is Allah, the owner of the Dominion the kingdom. Till model command Tushar you give kingdom to whomsoever you wish, what 10 Zero model commitment Russia, and you snatch away kingdom from whomsoever you wish. What will resume and Tasha and you honor whomsoever you wish, what will the Luma Tasha and you dishonor whomsoever you wish be a decal higher in your hands is
goodness. In the Karla coalition. Indeed, you are able to do everything.
Allah subhanho wa Taala is able to do everything. Every day you find people calling out to him asking him for something that they need, and they are billions of people across the globe, he attends to every single one of them. Yet that does not decrease him in his mind in any way. Yes, I do human free somewhat, he will help the young women who aphasia those who are in the heavens, including the mullah ICA and those who are on earth. The ask him all the time. He's engaged in some activity could lay all men who are fishermen.
And that does not decrease him in any way whatsoever.
At the time of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, there was a king, and this king was known as Nimrod.
Nimrod was a very tyrant king.
He did not acknowledge Allah subhanho wa taala. In fact, he was similar to frown in that he said
I am Europe. So worship me. Allah subhanahu Attallah discusses this. And he says, LM tele Elan levy
J Ebola Hemophilus mi n term Allahu Malik. Do you not see the one who argued with Ibrahim that Allah subhanahu wa regarding his rub, that Allah subhanahu wa taala had given him the kingdom, because Allah subhanahu Attallah gave him kingdom for such a long time he forgot. And he disregarded the fact that He was the creator and not himself. So he began to argue with Ibrahim Alayhi Salatu was Salam.
And he will meet, I am the one who gives life and I am the one who gives death. So Ibrahim Alayhi Salatu was Salam told him
Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam told him that Allah is the One who gives life and Allah is the One who gives death. So this man was so ignorant that he brought a man who was destined for execution. And he said, Kill off this man. So when the man was killed off, then he said, You see, I killed him off. And then he brought in another man who was destined for execution. And he said, I pardon this man. So let him go. So do you see I am the one who creates life and I am the one who gives death. So Ibrahim Alayhi Salatu was Salam did not begin to argue with him that hey, you know, your argument is useless because so on and so forth. But he clearly drew a line next to that which was misguided, a
straight line. And he says,
If you are the hub, if you are the creator, then bring the sun from the West because my Arab brings the sun from the east, bring the sun from the West, because my Rob brings the sun from the east Fabu he Tella the kuffaar. So the one who had disbelieved Nimrod, he was completely destroyed by this argument of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam. So ultimate kingdom, ultimate dominion, belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of Tiana Allah subhanahu wa taala will take the entire heavens and place them on a finger, from my elbows through my Allah Allah, Allah, Allah izba then he will place the earth on a finger from mailbox Oh, a sha Allah isberg Then he will place the trees on a finger
from male Barossa era Halki Allah isberg Then he will place the rest of creation on a finger. Don't Maya who's who who now i Aku and Al Malik, then he will shake them and he will say I am the king. I am the king.
This in reality
is the Creator. When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard this story from a Jewish man. By casued Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam smiled to steal currently by
showing that this is true what this man was saying. And then he recited the iron ore man, goddamn Allah help Tata dairy and they did not appreciate Allah subhanahu Attallah he is true appreciation. When do jammy hearin Cabildo to Yahoomail dia, and the heavens will be in his grasp all of them, or the earth will be in his grasp, grasp all of it on the day of Tiama was to Moto E to be Emini, and the heavens will be rolled up in his right hand, sub ha. Glory be to Him, exalted be He, what are Allah I'm usually Khun, from that which they associate partners with him. Understanding these names of Allah subhanho wa Taala should lead us to the worship of Allah subhanahu Attallah alone, Dear
Brothers and Sisters in Islam, we ask Allah subhanahu Attallah with all of his glorious names and all of his exalted qualities to grant us the ability to worship Him in the manner that he wants us to worship him. I mean, what SallAllahu wasallam Oba raka ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germain
