Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Illa Allah al Amin wobbliness Teryn. Also Leona Salim Allah Tamil MBI even more Celene Sabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Germain Allahu Malissa Elana Jalta who Salah one Tegile Husna either she has
a BSc while at was still with him bill here we can estuarine we thank Allah subhanahu wa taala for having gathered gathered us here once again, and we ask Allah subhanahu Attallah to surround us with the mela Iike and to cause his mercy and his Sakina to descend upon us, and to raise us with the MBR alayhi wa Salatu was Salam and those whom he has mentioned with them, I mean,
a smile Allah He are Alam on what else off the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala are not only names, but they are descriptions of Allah subhanho wa Taala as well. So when a person says a Semir they all hearing that not only is the name of Allah subhanahu Attallah a Samir, but it also refers to the fact that that he hears when we say Al bossy, the old seeing, then not only is the name of Allah subhanahu Attallah Elbasy. But it refiere refers to the fact that he sees it is a quality of his. So this gives meaning to the to the names of Allah subhanho wa taala. Now, today's name,
the first one will be al Hadi and Al Hadi means the one who guides His worshipers to that which holds the success in the dunya. And in the Akela. Allah subhanahu wa taala says,
What in Allah Allah had in Medina, or LLC all to him was dirty, and indeed it is Allah subhanho wa taala, who guides those who have believed in him to the straight path. So this is one of the types of guidance that Allah subhanho wa Taala provides. Now if we take a look at the animal kingdom, then when a new born animal comes into this world, then who is it that guides that animal to the teat of its mother and instructs it to feed?
Who is it that instructs or place within this animal places within this animal, the ability to understand that this is my mother and I need to follow it.
Who is it that gives the ants the capability and the capacity to return to their homes after they would have traveled large distances in order to find their food in order to find something to eat, no matter how far they have gone, they will always come back to their homes they will understand that this is the direction in which our home is Who is it that guided that and the bees
they go out and they Farage from the various plants in kilometres of distance they cover they cover kilometres of distance in order to go and get the nectar. But when they have gotten that nectar and they want to come home they do not go right they do not go left they go directly home. Who is it that inspired this bee with the capacity to come back to its home directly it is a 30 it is the one who guides so ahead the not only refers to the guidance that Allah subhanho wa Taala places within the breasts of men, but it refers to all of this as well. Allah subhanahu wa Tada.
He guides whomsoever He wishes. Yeah, he he loved who Manitoba the one who Sula salami, Allah subhanahu wa taala guides with that whomsoever He wishes, the paths of peace.
So Buddhists salami while you read you whom mean of Guru Murthy let Nori and he removes them from the darkness into the light, Allah Subhan
Under who Attalla is the one who guides. If we take a look at the fact that the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam supported him so much throughout his life, he stood up for him. He defended him when the kuffaar wanted to harm him, perhaps physically harm him. insult him say bad things to him, then Abu Talib are the Allahu Allah who told him
we cannot say you're not the Allah Who and because he was not a Muslim. I will tell him, defended him and he stood up for him. To the extent that he and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became like father and son. But when he was dying, and he was breathing his last, the best of creation was in his company. The best of creation was with him.
Standing there telling him who will kill him at an Ohio jeweler kept behind Allah. Say a word that I will be able to stand up and defend you on the sake of for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment, say this word. And what happened? He looks at the people of Croatia and he says, Look, I have spent my whole life following the dean of these people. Today they are going to say that he has left the dean of his forefathers. Who is it that decreed misguidance for Abu Talib, Allah subhanahu wa Tada. So guidance is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted so much that his uncle, he can seek forgiveness for him that he
went back and he says that I will continue to seek forgiveness so long as Allah subhanho wa Taala does not stop me from doing so. And Allah subhanho wa Taala stopped him from doing so. And he revealed the verses in Nicoletta demon.
Indeed you Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not guide whomsoever you wish, while akin Allah HYAH Dima Yasha, but it is Allah subhanho wa Taala who guides whomsoever He wishes. So guidance is not in our hands, we can only show the people the path and that was the job of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he showed the people the path, but when it came to putting Iman into the hearts, then that belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala the wife
of Wadala Allahumma Salli ala Dena Cafaro Murata know him, Amara Tallulah Allah subhanahu wa taala gives the example of the wife of Nora and the wife of Luth.
Allah hemos Allah Hema salah, these two women, they grew up in homes, or they lived in homes
in which they were the Gambia of Allah subhanahu Attallah
but the outcome was that they disbelieved in Allah subhanho wa taala. So sometimes you will find a person in a very religious environment. But Allah subhanahu wa taala has not decreed guidance for that person. So that person will not be guided. But you will sometimes find that they are examples of people in dirty and evil environments in the company of tyrants.
And Allah subhanahu Attallah gives this example in the wife of Iran.
And she was with Pharaoh on living with Iran who was a tyrant. But at the end of the day, she became a believer in Allah subhanho wa taala. imagined the wife of the Pharaoh, the one who persecuted Musa, the one who persecuted her own, the one who persecuted Babu Islam, Allah subhanahu wa taala had chosen for his wife to become a leader to the extent that she made a dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala records this in the Quran or BB nearly there kava eaten Fijian oh my god, build a home for me with you in Jana. When a genie means fear around our family and save me from fear our own and his actions. When a genie Mina Lukumi Lolly mean, and save me from the
oppressive people. So no matter your circumstance, no matter your situation, if Allah subhanahu wa taala has decreed guidance for you then guidance will be written for you and you will receive that guidance. Allah subhanho wa taala. He commands us to recite this dua five times a day in every rack of ours. In every unit of prayer, we
Like this dua what is that?
It didn't sell muster to guide us to the straight path, guide us to the path that leads us to you. Oh Allah. Why is this? The person who is reading the Salah, performing the Salah, he is already a Muslim. He is already a believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala but Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who controls the hearts and that is why the dua of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the one whom there was no doubt he was going to die on Iman he says yarmulke liberal Kulu Oh Turner of hearts. That beat can be Hala Diedrich,
affirm my heart to this religion of yours because none of us knows the condition in which we will die. So we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to grant us that guidance and to keep us firm on it and I mean
the second name today
which we will be discussing is a lower hub, a lower hub, the one who gives a lot of gifts in succession and in different forms. So Allah subhanahu Attallah gives a lot and he gives in succession one after the other and he gives in different and various forms. So a person is given a wife that is the gift of Allah subhanahu Attallah a person is given his child that is a gift of Allah subhanahu wa taala you are granted your limbs, the hands that you have the most mouth that you have the nose that you have the face that you have, the body that you have, is a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala he gives before he is even asked before a piece by a person raises up his hands to
Allah subhanho wa Taala it says yeah, Allah give me this. Allah subhanahu Attallah gives him you found it for you find that a child is a droplet of sperm, a droplet of sperm in the womb of the mother. And that droplet of sperm begins to receive nourishment from Allah subhanahu Attallah that child that clot of blood did not ask Allah subhanho wa Taala I want something to keep me alive. Yeah, Allah fashioned me into this human being no, but Allah subhanahu wa Tada fashioned it into that human being anyways.
And amazingly, not only is this nourishment that it received from Allah subhanahu wa taala, a gift of His, but that child in and of itself is a gift to the mother and the father.
And that's This is why the dua of Ibrahim Alayhi Salatu wa sallam, he says
Al Hamdulillah he won't have any Island Leakey, Barry is Mariela is high.
Praise be to Allah, the One who gave me upon Old age is married and is held in be less than a year old do.
Indeed my Lord is the hero of all dua. So Allah subhanho wa Taala heard the dua of Ibrahim Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And he granted him a child. So he grants without you asking and He grants when you ask him as well. And this is why he says what have bad
Alhamdulillah a lady will have been the one who granted me which is from Allah herb, the one who grants in succession, the one who grants a lot, the one who grants when you ask him the one who grants when you do not ask of him and a Yoruba Salatu was Salam had lost his entire family. He had lost everything that he had. And it is said that he began to lose his limbs one by one. And then he called out to Allah subhanho wa Taala Miscellanea do some harm has touched me. So Allah subhanho wa Taala responded to him. What will happen Allahu Allahu wa Mithila who ma whom I met him in Indiana, or Mina,
Allah subhanahu wa Tada says that we granted him his family and the life of his family as a mercy from Us. So Allah subhanahu wa taala uses this word Wahab again. And Allah subhanahu Attallah Grant says grants child children, he grants children to those whom
he wants as a gift from him, and he grants a wife to the one whom he wants as a gift from him. And this is why he says, Well Allah he will Kusama what you will, and to Allah subhanahu Attallah belongs the heavens and the earth.
Yeah boo Lima Yasha, who Inasa He grants whomsoever He wants female children, and He grants via boo Lima Yasha or to cool. And he grants whomsoever he wants, the male children will use a widow who Quran and we're in Eartha, or He grants them male and female, where Jai Roumania shirt, what Hakima and he makes whomsoever He wishes Baron. So the next time you are expecting a child, and you really, really want this child to be a male, or you really, really want this child to be a female. And when your wife gives birth, and you find that the child is not exactly the gender that you wanted it to be then remember that this is a gift and the choice of the one who grants whatever he wants to
grant. So rejoice and be happy, that this is the gift of Allah subhanahu wa taala upon you. And when you have a child and that child is according to the choice and the desire the gender that you wanted it to be, then thank Allah subhanahu Attallah that your choice was in agreement with the choice of Allah subhanahu wa taala when
Marian alayhis salaam her mother
was expecting a child.
Then she told Allah subhanho wa Taala and she made a pledge to Allah subhanho wa Taala it will call it more Taurima not mean Nina them to like MFE but to me more how
feta Bell mean me when the wife of Imran she said to Allah subhanho wa Taala I have made a pledge that whatever is in my womb, whatever I am carrying, will be for you. Oh Allah subhanho wa Taala he or she will serve you. So except from me, when she gave birth, Allah subhanho wa Taala says Furama dot
o let me in me while Dora to Ha.
Oh my god. This is a female child that I have given birth to one Allahu Allah.
Walla and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows better that which she gave birth to. So Miriam, so the wife, the mother of Maryam Alayhis Salam, she did not understand. She said that yeah, Allah, I expected to give birth to a male child. So this child will then serve you for the sake for your sake.
Because she understood a male child to have more capacity than a female child, for a male child to be able to do much more than the female child. But Allah subhanahu wa taala had other plans. And this child that she gave birth to was Meriam. And Meriam gave birth to one of the greatest men to ever trade on Earth. And that was isa Allah His Salatu was Salam. So Allah subhanahu wa taala had planned something from this child that he had given to the mother of Miriam that she did not understand she did not fathom.
But Allah subhanahu wa taala had planned differently. So when we receive a male child or a female child, then let us understand that that is the gift of Allah subhana wa Tada. And never ever think that a female child has less opportunity to gain closeness to Allah subhanho wa Taala the male and the female in this day are equal. Allah subhanho wa Taala grants them equal opportunity. If you take a look at the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I Isha around the Allahu unhas she is a female. You chi is better than all of us.
We are all males here.
Or perhaps at least in this room. We are all males. Yet Allah subhanahu wa taala has made it shallow the Allahu anha better than all of us. So someone may think that because I am male, I am better No.
You are better if you have created a relationship that is better with Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is why whatever we receive from Allah subhanahu wa taala let us thank him and he says, and he teaches us this dua or banner herb Elana Amin as well Gina Why don't we Yeah, Tina
or John 13, Ema o our OB grant us from you from out
We're wives and our children, those who are a coolness of our eyes, and make us an example for those who come after us from amongst the righteous. So this is the dua that a believer makes. And he supplicates to Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant him righteous children and righteous spouse. And Allah subhanho wa taala. When he speaks about Sulayman, Allah His Salatu was Salam. And he says how Sulayman alayhi salatu salam had made a dua to Allah subhanho wa taala. He says that he he should Amen. He says all Bill who fear really what habitually more you can learn. But he I had him in the Oh my God, forgive me and grant me a dominion, a kingdom that is not suitable for anyone after me.
What did Allah subhanahu Attallah give him? Allah subhanho wa Taala granted him the winds the control of the wind. So he would call upon the wind and tell it to move in this direction and it would move in that direction. And then Allah subhanahu wa Tada gave him the devils that would build for him that were under his command, they would build for him, and they would dive into the sea in order to bring out the pearls and the jewels. So even if a person wants something of this dunya turn to Allah hub and ask him with this dua of Suleiman salatu salam, wa I believe you can and grant me a kingdom and Allah subhanahu wa taala will most definitely grant you never think that your kingdom
and your empire lies in your business. Never think that your empire lies with your employer, it lies with Al Wahab, the one who grants when you ask of him, and the one who grants when you don't ask of Him, we ask Allah subhanahu Attallah to grant us of the goodness in this world and the goodness in the earth era. The third name that we will be discussing today is Al Fatah.
Al Fatah means the one who judges between his servants as he wishes, He decrees what he wants and he gives whomsoever He wishes, with whatever he wants, and there is no one to reject His rule in any way or to change his command in any way. May after he left holiness, email Rama, whatever Allah subhanahu wa taala opens upon the people of Rama Fela mumsie Callaghan there will be no body who will be able to withhold that Rama, Rama yum sick and that which he withholds in him and within him and does not grant it.
Then there is no one fella mumsy Kela whom embody
OMA yum sick Farah
morcilla whom embody and that which he holds back with him, there is no one that will give that after Allah subhanho wa taala. So Allah subhanahu wa Tada is the one who opens the doors of guidance such that he has given the Quran He has sent down the messengers so that these messengers will give us a message that we have that will lead us to Allah subhanahu Attallah. So he is alpha TA, he opens up the doors of guidance. And this also refers to the meaning of justice. Allah subhanahu Attallah is most just so we know how to you salatu salam had called his people for 950 years, and a handful of his people had accepted the message, the message, they knew hallelujah Salatu was Salam. He calls
out to Allah subhanho wa taala. And he says, I'll be in a company in Canada bone, oh my up. Indeed my people have belied me, they have rejected me, first time Benny Medina.
So judge between me and them, a judging
judge between me and them a judging 50 benei you are being fed Ha, and make it very clear who is right and who is wrong. So Allah subhanahu wa taala commanded him to build the ark, and he built this ark and whilst he was building the ark, the people are looking at him and jeering at him. But what was the outcome of that? The outcome was those who disbelieved were drowned. And those who believed in Allah subhanahu wa Tada was saved. And he is the one no hallelujah salatu salam was the one who called out to Allah subhanahu wa Tada with this name of his faith, Benny with this quality of his judge between me and them, because you are an Fatah. You are the one who judges and there is
no judge after you. Allah subhanahu wa
Allah on the day of piano,
he will bring together the people who had the arguments. So say a person had a serious dispute with someone in this dunya Allah subhanahu wa taala mentioned this and he says cool, say O Messenger of Allah, because the Messenger of Allah had disputes with Polish. They rejected Allah subhanahu Attallah they did not accept him. So, Allah subhanahu Attalus is tell them who Leah Jamar will be Nana or buena. Our up will gather us between me and you. He will gather us from my F Tahoe bein in Erbil hack, then he will judge between us with the truth will who will die and he is the one who is the judge, the ultimate judge and the Haleem the one who knows everything. Now if we take a look at
this higher, we will come to realize that Allah subhanahu Attallah is highlighting several issues to us here. Number one, he will gather us on the Day of the AMA. So if a person had any doubt whatsoever, that Allah subhanahu wa taala would not bring him on the day of Tiana and Allah subhanahu wa Tada would not judge between him then let him dispel this. Because Allah subhanahu wa taala will bring the people today in this world, you have a person that is disputed with you, he has stolen your right
and he runs away. He's able to run away, he's able to get away. But the on the day of gamma, how will you get away from the one who has the capacity to bring you from wherever you are.
There is no ability to get away on that day. So Allah subhanahu wa taala will bring them together. And Allah subhanahu wa to Allah says the word or buena, our our maker, why? Because even the person who you are disputing with if he is a careful, a disbeliever in Allah subhanahu wa taala ultimately Allah subhanho wa Taala is his maker. If you stole his right, if you usurped his right then Allah subhanahu wa taala will bring you to justice. And Allah subhanahu wa taala will judge fairly between you. And this is why he says our maker because this refers to those the maker of the one who is the maker of those who believe and those who disbelieve the maker of those who obey Him and the maker of
those who disobey Him. So Allah subhanahu Attallah will judge equally between them to May after Hubei in Erbil.
Then Allah subhanahu what Allah says that he will open and judge between them with the truth in this world, the standards of justice, the standards of judging are sometimes completely wrong. So, you find that a person has a scale of justice that they are calling a scale of justice, yet one side is tipped lower than the other side. So, you find that you go to the fruit salad, and he has gotten this is just for us to understand and he has got a scale, but one pan is heavier than the other. So it is slightly tipped in that favor. So when one kg is placed here and one kg of fruit is placed here or say less fruit is placed here, then naturally you will find that this person, you know the
scales will tip in the wrong way they will be there will be no justice, because why there is more than one kg here.
So, on the day of piano, Allah subhanahu wa taala will bring the scale of justice that will be the truth.
There will be no lies, there will be no bribery. When you go to the judge in this world. You can tip the scales of justice by placing a little bit of money in his hand if he is corrupt.
You know what? Take this 5000 Take this 10,000 Take this 15,000 and judge for me. Even though I am wrong.
You can do that in the dunya but when you get to rob Boulez that you will learn when you are standing before your maker, then who is it that you will bribe who is it that you will give something in order to get away from the Justice and from the truth? There is no body and there is nothing that you can offer Allah subhanho wa Taala on that day to bribe him.
There is nothing that you can bribe Allah subhanahu wa taala with so remember this, that Allah subhanahu Attallah will judge with the truth with Justice Gulia Gmail by Nana buena from my after obey Nana will help with the truth will who will Fatah hula and he
is the judge who opens up the way that makes clear who is right and who is wrong. Allegedly,
the one who knows everything in existence. Do you know what happens in this dunya sometimes the judge is just
the judge is not corrupt.
But what happens? A person comes and he says his argument so eloquently, that he believes it. So he judges for that person, and He grants them that
and this person has taken that which does not belong to Him. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions this in a hadith. He says, in a conductor, so Munna Ilya, indeed you are you and you have differences disputes amongst yourself. So you come to me,
Dr. Simona in a while Angela, Baba, Camilla como, el Hannah Bihu, Jetty him in Bath. And perhaps some of you are more eloquent in the manner of putting it forth than the others found to be the who will be happy. So I judge for him with the right of his brother, meaning I judged for him that which does not belong to Him, because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not available rape, he did not know the unseen. So he judges according to what he hears and what he knows. And then he says for men, Kobe Tula who be hacky or he for innama. Here, Peter two minute now,
the one whom I have judged for his brother, I have judged with him, that which belongs to his brother. So then it is a piece of the fire
and the a DA only Kula. So let him take that piece of the fire and eat it if he wants, or let him leave it if he is understanding
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not a lolly. He was not the old knowing. So at times, you find that he is saying that according to the circumstances of what I understood, I would judge with justice but I only understood a certain amount there was something that was left out. This person put his argument forward very eloquently, so I judged for him yet he was wrong.
On the day of PM, Allah subhanho wa Taala is unlikely He is all knowing so which facts will you hide from Allah subhanho wa Taala which evidence will you keep away from Allah subhanahu wa taala so that he will judge with injustice, Allah subhanahu wa Tada only judges with justice and Allah subhanahu Attallah he knows everything that is happening. So he knows everything that took place, and on that day, all of the disputes will come to an end. Why? Because Allah subhanahu Attallah knows everything and he is most just May Allah subhanahu Attallah grant us the ability to understand and may Allah subhanahu Attallah grant us the ability to be just Amin wa sallahu wa Salam o Baraka, Elena VNM.
