Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen illa Allah alameen wa sahbihi necessary on a Sunday or Sunday Maha Tamil ambia even more serene Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Marine Allahumma salli ala Magill who Salah,

00:00:45--> 00:01:12

either Sheikh Salah obeah sudwala to us or whatever men will hire we can isteri We thank Allah subhanahu wa taala for having gathered us here once again. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to surround us with the Malaika and to cause his mercy and His Sakina to descend upon us, and to raise us with the MBR Allahu wa Salatu was Salam and those whom he has mentioned with them, I mean,

00:01:14--> 00:01:17

when it comes to the names of Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:01:18--> 00:01:40

then all of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala are good regardless of what they are. And this comes from the ayah when Illa Hill usma will husana and belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala the best of names and hosana comes from us and

00:01:42--> 00:02:28

it is the plural of accent. And accent 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 rumble lists that you will learn when it comes to the name alcoholic, then alcohol has three stages. Alcoholic triple berry will Mazel we're

00:02:29--> 00:03:23

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 subhanho wa Taala. So, Allah subhanho wa Taala 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 and Barry al-musawi Albury meaning the one who brings into existence from non existence and almost somewhere The one who fashions

00:03:26--> 00:03:51

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 subhanho wa Taala when he Subhana knows best. We don't understand exactly how this happens because none of us really saw Allah subhanahu wa tada creating.

00:03:52--> 00:04:04

But we know that he creates because myself and yourselves are here today. We are proof of the quality of creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:04:10--> 00:04:45

when he wants to create, then in number a MOO hoo either our the shaman and the akula who couldn't fire Kuhn, 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

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

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

00:05:00--> 00:05:23

But at times he will not execute that plan. But Allah subhanahu attallah never fails to execute Khun akun B and it is in existence he fashioned us and Allah subhanahu wa tada mentions this after mentioning our creation and this is why he says what happened

00:05:24--> 00:06:06

and most definitely we created you through muscle Warner comm then we fashion you from McCool merrell Mela equities Julian, then we told the melodica that Prostrate to Adam alayhis salam towards Allah. So, Allah subhanahu wa attallah mentions this in the sequence. So, hello is different to borrow. And borrow is different to just wait. Because he planned, he brought into existence from nothing and then he fashioned so Allah subhanahu wa tada creates in this manner, when a person

00:06:07--> 00:06:12

takes God's besides Allah subhanahu attallah

00:06:13--> 00:06:35

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 subhana wa tada created from nothing. So he is deserving of that worship.

00:06:36--> 00:06:39

At the time of masala his Salatu was Salam when he had gone out

00:06:41--> 00:07:08

and he went to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala he went to speak to Allah subhanho wa Taala then there was a man known as a cemetery and cemetery decided that let me make a calf out of gold. And I will tell the people to worship this calf. So Allah subhanho wa Taala he mentioned this and he says, Raja Allahu Allah who just said, whoo hoo.

00:07:09--> 00:07:18

So semidry he produced a car for them, that had a moving sound falcor who had

00:07:19--> 00:07:47

Isla de la fantasy. So he said, this is your, this is your Lord and the Lord of Moosa, 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 this calf. So when masa harina salatu salam got back, he was very angry and he was sorrowful

00:07:48--> 00:08:20

that these people had been called to Allah subhanho wa Taala 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 calf 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 gold in the earth for them to dig it up.

00:08:21--> 00:08:28

And He then took this and fashion the calf in order to mislead the people with that which Allah subhanho wa Taala had created.

00:08:29--> 00:08:54

And Allah subhanho wa Taala creates from nothing. So if these people were to look at the caf, and they were to think about Allah subhanho wa Taala, 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,

00:08:55--> 00:08:58

or you call mo Salah tomie

00:09:02--> 00:09:25

fU saquon de casa de como Nigel musala salatu wa sallam told his people Oh my people you have oppressed yourselves by taking the calf as a god, fair to bow Ella berry comb, so return and repent, to your

00:09:26--> 00:09:32

repents to the one who created you from nothing uses this word

00:09:34--> 00:09:41

which means he created from nothing so he is the only one who deserves that worship.

00:09:44--> 00:09:45


00:09:46--> 00:09:49

is the last stage of creation

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

from the three stages of creation that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions and he says go along

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

Whoo Holly berry almost aware,

00:10:04--> 00:11:02

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? He is and muscle with he is the fashioner 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

00:11:02--> 00:11:03


00:11:04--> 00:11:20

who he who made that particular creature. So, let us get rid of this mentality. Let us get rid of this ideology. It is only from shaper that he comes to us and teaches us how to do this evil and this bad.

00:11:21--> 00:11:34

Allah subhanho wa Taala. 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.

00:11:35--> 00:11:55

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,

00:11:56--> 00:12:09

the animals that are there, then this is despised by Allah subhanho wa Taala because he is al-musawi. He is the fashioner and this is why on the day of

00:12:11--> 00:12:37

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that in Medina Elsner, owner herb in your surah You are the Borneo malkia Suma, you call Lula whom you must follow. Indeed these people who call who sculpt these creatures or who paint these pictures, they will be punished on the day of the AMA.

00:12:38--> 00:12:53

And it will be told to them you Mahara 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.

00:12:55--> 00:13:54

Because you are not a god. Because you are not alone. You are not alcoholic, you are not bilberry and Basile will so understand that. So these are some of the characteristics of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then we move on to the name l medic, Al Malik, Allah subhanahu wa attallah describes himself as a medic. And we have the description of Al Murray with us as well. And this means we usually translate it 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.

00:13:55--> 00:13:57

A loss of power subhanho wa Taala

00:13:58--> 00:14:24

his kingdom means three things, it means three things. Number one, the affirmation of these 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 archaea.

00:14:25--> 00:14:51

So this is the first stage of the Kingdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala. 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 subhanho wa Taala. Now if we pause for a moment, and we think about the kings

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

of this world, or should we rather say the tyrants of this world, because you have Mr. monatti

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

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, if they do not perceive, they do not fathom. The Pharaoh was a person who said at one stage and Allah buku, Allah, I am you're up the highest worship me. He called to his worship.

00:15:43--> 00:16:12

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? 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.

00:16:13--> 00:16:18

He was no truck, and all of a sudden, meant to be on the move.

00:16:19--> 00:16:22

I have believed in the above Mussa and how.

00:16:23--> 00:16:28

Why do you believe in this hub yet you yourself? claimed you were

00:16:30--> 00:16:52

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 subhanho wa Taala is the only being worthy of worship and all of a sudden he believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala but it is too late.

00:16:56--> 00:16:58

Now what are the other

00:16:59--> 00:17:14

terminal 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 are from those who are corrupt.

00:17:15--> 00:17:51

So it was too late. The message is simple. The 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 evil gelar 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 subhanho wa Taala is that all of the affairs belong to him.

00:17:52--> 00:18:45

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 cures the sick. He is the one who honors the dishonored and he is the one who dishonored those who are honorable and high up in status. Allah subhanho wa Taala says Puli la Houma Malik al mulk say He is Allah, the owner of the Dominion the kingdom, to kill Malcolm and Tasha. You give kingdom to whomsoever you wish, what? 10 zero mortal commandment, Tasha. And you snatch away Kingdom from whomsoever you wish. What were his woman Tasha? And you honor whomsoever you wish. What was illumine Tasha and you dishonor whomsoever you wish be a decal higher in your

00:18:45--> 00:18:54

hands, His goodness. In the Kyla cliche in a khadeem indeed, you are able to do everything.

00:18:55--> 00:19:33

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, as a woman free seminar, it will help the young woman who aphasia those who are in the heavens, including the melodica. And those who are on Earth, the Ask him all the time, he's engaged in some activity could lead to men who are efficient.

00:19:34--> 00:19:38

And that does not decrease him in any way whatsoever.

00:19:39--> 00:19:47

At the time of Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam. There was a king, and this king was known as Nimrod.

00:19:48--> 00:19:51

Nimrod was a very tyrant king.

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

He did not acknowledge Allah subhanho wa Taala. In fact, he was similar to fear around in that he said

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

I am Europe. So worship, Allah subhanahu attallah discusses this. And he says, lm Terra Isla levy

00:20:11--> 00:20:15

je Bella he mercy Europe de

00:20:17--> 00:20:17


00:20:19--> 00:20:43

Do you not see the one who argued with Ibrahim that Allah Subhana who had regarding his robe that Allah subhanahu wa tada had given him the kingdom, because Allah subhanahu wa taala 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.

00:20:44--> 00:20:53

And he means I am the one who gives life and I am the one who gives death. So Ibrahim alayhi salatu wa sallam told him,

00:20:54--> 00:21:36

Ibrahim alayhi salatu was Salam told him that Allah is the one who gives life and allies 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

00:21:36--> 00:21:39

straight line. And he says,

00:21:41--> 00:21:42

if you are,

00:21:43--> 00:22:38

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 Arab brings the sun from the east for buoy tele de Kapha. So the one who had disbelieved Nimrod, he was completely destroyed by this argument of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, Salam Alaikum 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. So my elbows through my elbow of bahala spa, then he will place the earth on a finger from my elbow through a sha Allah. Then he will place the trees on a finger from my elbow

00:22:39--> 00:22:55

to his bar, then he will place the rest of creation on a finger sumaya who's una waiuku nl medic, then he will shake them and he will say I am the king. I am the king.

00:22:56--> 00:22:58

This in reality

00:22:59--> 00:23:15

is the creator. When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard the story from a Jewish man by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam smile. Just do it by

00:23:16--> 00:23:57

showing that this is true what this man was saying. And then he recited the iron ore Ma Ma, Taka dairy and they did not appreciate Allah Subhana Allah His true appreciation when to Jamia Baba to yahoomail Tia 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 tm was to Moto E to be emini, and the heavens will be rolled up in his right hand. So

00:23:59--> 00:24:04

Glory be to Him, Exalted be He was

00:24:06--> 00:24:41

born 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 wa tada alone. Dear brothers and sisters in Islam, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala 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, or sallallahu wasallam or Baraka Island Amina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi adjumani
