And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to surround us with the Mullah iica 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,
the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala are indeed the most profound thing that a human being can learn in his life. Because what can be more profound than him getting to know the maker, the one who created his body in its entirety, the systems of breathing the systems of
respiration, the systems of digestion, the systems of reproduction, that all work in conjunction with each other in order to make up this human being. That Allah subhanho wa Taala says love Kahala Kunal insert Fie us and he took with him. Indeed, we have created mankind in the best of postures. So this knowledge of learning the names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala will actually teach us who our maker is in reality.
man means that Allah subhanho wa Taala has this quality of ohana within him. It is present within him. And the theme refers to the action of having mercy upon others. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What can I be meaning in Allah Hema, and indeed, he is most merciful with those who believe in him. So our man refers to the quality within an hour Rahim refers to the action of man that Allah subhanho wa Taala has.
He began Surah Al Fatiha with this name. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, the Most Merciful, the Especially Merciful. So, the surah that is known as the own model and the mother of the Quran began with Allah manual Rahim when
Suleiman alayhis salam had missed the hoopoe bird
and he was looking for this bird. Then he said, it is missing and if it does not come back, I am going to punish it.
So the hoopoe bird comes back, and it gives you a man Allahu salatu salam, the news
in Niva. Tomorrow attend Tim Lika, whom will ot admin coalition in WA Harsha, Navin, I found a woman who was ruling over some other people. And she was given everything that could have been bestowed upon a person and she had a huge Kingdom huge house. So Suleiman Allahu Salatu was Salam. He tells this ruku bed because the hoopoe bird says that I found them worshipping the sun besides Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Suleiman alayhi salatu was Salam being a navy and a king as well. He tells the Superbad go out to these people and invite them to Allah subhanho wa Taala take this letter of mine.
And this bird goes and says inna, who means Suleiman. It is from Suleiman that I present you this letter was in who Bismillah and indeed it begins with the name of Allah. R Rahman r Rahim, the Most Merciful, the Especially Merciful
Imagine the effect that this had on the heart of the woman
who is being told that you are worshipping the sun, they knew that they were worshipping the sun. And then she is being called out to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Who is this Allah? Who is this Allah? Allah, Allah He the Most Merciful, especially merciful. Now compare that to the sun that they were worshipping, there is no comparison whatsoever. So Allah subhanahu wa Tada. He granted Sulayman ru salatu wa sallam the wisdom to begin by explaining what our man who Allah subhanho wa Taala is, by our Rahman and Rahim every surah that jabril alayhi salatu was Salam came down with he began by Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us in a Hadith, in alila, he may
indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala has 100 parts of Rama and xlm in meten, wahida. Being in geni, one in C well behind me one one, he sent down one part of man, between the gym and between the mankind and between the animals and between the vermin, the snakes and so on and so forth.
For whom, for whom, B Hayato una vida tapa foon. So it is with that one part of Russia, that all of the human beings and all of the animals and all of the Jin kind and all of the vermin, they have Rama, and they have feeling for each other. What
this pattern what is in our man, and he kept behind with him 99 parts of Rama for who are behind or Hammurabi Reba who young malkia, so he will actually have RA, on his servants with those 99 parts of Rama on the day of piano. So that one part of Rama is what you find a mother having Rama upon her child with that one part of Rama is the aroma that you find a person going out to save a child with a child that is drowning perhaps, or someone who is in distress. That is the aroma that we have amongst ourselves. Imagine the man that is with Allah subhana wa tada that he will have upon us on the day of the M and we ask Allah subhana wa tada with his name, man, and with his name or Rahim to
grant us that Rama. I mean
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once passed by a woman.
And this was at the time of war or just after the time of war.
And this woman was going around. There were some young children there. So the woman was going around and she would feed she would breastfeed these young children because they were hungry. So she would breastfeed them.
And then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells the companions that do you see this woman? She is feeding the children of others, with so much hotma and so much mercy? Because she feels for them. Do you see her taking her own child and throwing her own child into the fire? So they said Lola, she said, they said no, most definitely not. She would not do that. Because she has so much to offer on the rest of the children. What about her own children? There is no doubt that you will not do that so long as she can hold herself back and she can, so long as she can protect that child, she will protect it. So do you know what the profound words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. He says
Lola, who are Hammurabi, Liberty he mean has he be well I do have one law he Allah is more mercy merciful with his servants than this mother to her child.
So if we meet Allah subhanho wa Taala with La ilaha illa Allah, having fulfilled this kalama having fulfilled this Shahada, then let us not doubt that Allah subhanho wa Taala will be most merciful with us. We all know the story of the man who had
So many scrolls, and these scrolls were all filled up with the sin of Allah subhanho wa Taala disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala and one little card falls out, one little card of a good deed falls out. And what happens? He says, Hello, I am destroyed. Because what will this little card be? In comparison to the rest of these clothes full of evil will have this obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But what is the outcome of that Howdy, this man
when that one card is taken any displaced on the right scale, the right pan, and the bad and the evil that has been committed is placed on the left pan, then this one card will outweigh all of those evil deeds. Do you know what will be written on that card? La ilaha illa Allah, the day that that man uttered the Shahada is the last moment that he did a good deed. After that they will only evil and bad deeds yet, Allah subhanahu attallah will cause the scales to tip in his favor, such that he will enter into gentlemen, this is Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the quality that he has.
And we should always hope and pray for the sama from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
The next name that we will be discussing is El Haj the EverLiving Allah subhanho wa Taala is everliving. And he mentioned this in a tool called si Allahu La Ilaha Illa.
Allah The only one who is worthy of worship and high volume, the EverLiving The one who supports everything in existence, and he mentions this in an ayah that will give us profound an understanding of how Allah subhanho wa Taala is ever living. He says we're honored to do
a yom on the day of the AMA. The faces will be humbled before the EverLiving The one who supports everything in existence. Allah subhanho wa Taala is drawing our attention to the fact that we have died at this point.
Yet he is ever living. Our life is in complete, yet the life of Allah subhanho wa Taala is most complete. His life is preceded by life and it is not.
You never find that Allah subhanho wa Taala will die because Allah subhanho wa Taala is ever living.
So his life is preceded by life and it is continued with life. So his life is perfect. Yet our lives are actually lacking because we have died or we will die.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says what are what can learn how you lead the life
and have trust in the ever living the one who does not die? Why should we have trust in the ever living? Why should we have trust in the living
if a person were to trust on his brother, or on his sister, to bring him food every day, to bring him some sort of clothing perhaps when he needs it. Then the day that that person dies, what will happen with that it will come to an end. There is no longer any food. There is no longer any clothing, there is no longer any shelter why because that person whom he was leaning upon, died.
Yet when a person trusts in the ever living, then he will never die.
So no matter what happens on Earth, that brother died that sister died, the ever living continues to provide for him. And that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala deserves or whatever. That is why Allah subhanho wa Taala deserves our trust whatever can annul Hi, and have trust in the ever loving and levena moods, the one who never dies. So if we want to trust in anyone, then let us place our trust in the EverLiving The one who will never let us down the one who will always be there for us, the one who will always support us. And this is where we come to the third name of today
of today's talk and that is
Allah subhanho wa Taala
is the one who exists on his own. He is not dependent on anything for him to exist. So, the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in order for us to understand. We can refer back to this hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says kind of law. There was a law while I'm here
and there was nothing besides Allah subhanho wa Taala from Allah.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala was on his own he existed without anything else in existence. And then he created the water from Mahara talaash then he created the throne to Mahela Kilcullen. Then he created the pen. From mahalo Aloha, then he created the preserve tablet. So Allah subhanho wa Taala existed before any of this was created it he existed and Allah subhanahu wa tada then created all of this that was dependent on him without him they would not exist.
But without all of these things, Allah subhanahu wa tada would exist and has existed
because before there was anything Allah subhanahu wa tada existed and this is why he, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, are you happiness? Oh people and to Moodle fukada illa Allah you are in need of Allah subhanho wa Taala one Lahore Ghani Yun Hamid and Allah subhanho wa Taala is all independent, all praiseworthy, in another ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Allaha UMC Kusama wa T will Aruba and azula Allah subhanho wa Taala holds up the heavens and the earth so that they do not move, they do not sway whether insalata in if they and if they were to move in M saqa, who may mean a Heidi mimbar nobody would be able to hold them in place after him
in the law, her
what, in fact, this continues. When I'm in second home, I mean, I had him back in who can haleem and
indeed he is most Clement most forgiving. Who would hold up the heavens if Allah subhanho wa Taala was to allow them to drop onto the earth, there would be nobody. And now let us take a moment to look at the end of the ayah how Allah subhanho wa Taala ends it was in Cana Halim and
Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is most Clement most patient and he is most forgiving. Why does Allah subhanahu wa taala into this ayah with this ending, because on Earth, you will find human beings that will be disobedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala yet is he he is holding up the heaven that is above them. He is holding it up as a roof above them, yet they continue to be disobedient to him. They continue to harm him in terms of the sins that they commit. Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala is most patient with him. Allah subhanho wa Taala is most forgiving of their sins. So Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the extent of him being a human, that no matter what his servants are doing, he holds
that sky up for them. And on the day of PM, Allah subhanho wa Taala will roll up the heavens in his right hand
he will hold a roll up the heavens and the earth in his right hand. And he will say nn Malik for a nimue Luca dunia I am the king. So where are the kings of the dunya
We are the kings of the dunya today, they felt they had power. They felt they had authority. They felt that because of them the people who are living the people who are surviving, but it is only due to Allah subhanho wa Taala that they are living that they are surviving. So this is the extent of Allah subhanho wa Taala being you when it comes to the name of an Holly
and Holly, Allah subhanho wa Taala create from nothing.
Allah subhanho wa Taala creates from nothing some thing that has no previous similarity to.
So when a human being invents, when a human being makes something, then normally and usually they will copy
that which already
So Allah subhana wa tada
if we take a look at everything that the human being has created the human being has made, then there is a similarity between that or he actually tried to copy the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So for example, the fly that Allah subhanho wa Taala has created, you can take that and say that the human beings understood flight from there, the birds that Allah subhanho wa Taala created, human beings understood flight from there, and as a result they created or they made they invented the airplane that flies in the sky. But who did Allah subhanho wa Taala get that example from in order to create that fly? Who did Allah subhanho wa Taala get that example from in order to create
who taught Allah subhanho wa Taala nobody and that is why the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala is special.
He creates with nothing in existence. And if we take a look at the creation of man, it is ultimately the bringing together of the parts that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given him and putting them together in order to have something and this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says have the huncle law. This is the creation of Allah subhana wa tada the mountains, the birds, the trees, the ocean, the land, the heavens, the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala for our Rooney mother, Allah tala Dena mean dooney So show me what is it that those who are besides him have created show me what they have created? Do you really think there is any comparison fecha barakallahu is and will Holly pin so
bless it and Exalted is He Who is the best of creators
Omar Hakuna sama our our Marina whom about Allah, Allah subhana wa Taala says that we did not create the heavens and the earth in vain. They will not be made out of just an out of jokes. Allah subhanho wa Taala made them for a purpose. And that purpose is for us to recognize him. And that is why he says that only Calvin knew Latina cafardo that is the methodology and the thought process of those who have disbelieved in Allah subhanho wa Taala what happens? They see all of this has been created by Allah subhanho wa Taala that leads them to the disbelief in Allah subhanho wa Taala what kind of mind Do you have to be led to the disbelief of Allah subhanho wa Taala when you see that which He
has created, what kind of heart Do you have, that does not lead you to the creator by seeing all of the creation. So the co founder of koresh they believed in the creation of Allah subhana wa tada the part that says that Allah subhanahu wa tada created everything. They believed in it. While I insult Mancha, sama what you will lay upon Allah, if you ask them who created the heavens and the earth, they would say Allah. But after that, they would go back and associate partners with that same being who made everything. This does not make sense to a believing heart. But this is the manner in which shape and plays with human beings. So when we see the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala, it should
lead us to understanding who the maker is, I usually call Amanda Lucia, do the associate in partnership with him that which does not create anything. When when we have Hulu, and those things that they are associating partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala with they are created in and of themselves.
The Allahu anhu he says that we were in so much Jaya helia we were in so much helia that we would actually make an idol. We would put it together with dates, and then we would worship that idol.
And when we became hungry, we would begin to eat the idol.
So what kind of understanding do the disbelievers have in the maker?
All they have to do is to look into the creation and understand that all of creation points to the singularity and the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless us and to
Grant has the ability to call out to him with his beautiful names and to grant us the understanding of who he really is in reality, I mean, or sallallahu wasallam or obata Kala Nabina Muhammad Ali. He was a big marine
