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

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen ilaha illAllah amin will be here in a serene on Osan Leona Salim Allah her Tamil ambia even more serene the Bina Mohamed Salah. He was like me he married a lot Marisa in love john Moosa

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

hasn't either she has

00:00:43--> 00:01:10

obvious Sinhala to assume hmm we'll hire what we can a story. We send colossal cannon who and Tyler for having gathered us here once again. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to surround us with the meta aka, 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

00:01:12--> 00:01:15

the names of Allah subhana wa tada

00:01:16--> 00:01:21

are only taken from he himself or boulerice that he will

00:01:22--> 00:01:44

or Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The reason for this is because who knows Allah subhana wa tada better than himself. Nobody can describe Allah subhana wa Tada. Better than he can to us.

00:01:45--> 00:02:40

And nobody has knowledge of Allah subhanahu wa tada except that knowledge which he has given to mankind, and that can only come from a newbie of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we all know that the final messenger from above subhanho wa Taala is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam money on quantum However, he does not speak of his own desire in who in what you knew her. Indeed it is why he and revelation from Allah subhanahu wa Tada. So whichever the names are lots of kind of who Allah told us of himself, we affirm them to him, and whichever names Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us of Allah subhana wa tada we affirm those names to Allah subhanho wa Taala and anything else that

00:02:40--> 00:02:47

we have heard from others, then we will not affirm these as names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:02:48--> 00:03:12

The name or was ik and our Rosa belong to a bullish that he was jealous he says in Allah who are Rosa poo till Mateen Indeed Allah subhanahu wa tada is the one who sustains constantly and he is the one who is the possessor of the firm power.

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:03:17--> 00:03:19

woman is the

00:03:27--> 00:03:34

and there is no thing that treads on earth with its two feet tall with how many feet it has.

00:03:35--> 00:04:17

In law here is skaha except that it's raised is upon Allah subhanho wa Taala. So if anything is treading on Earth, then that thing is its risk is taken care of by Allah subhanho wa Taala It does not have to worry about its risk, the ends the cockroaches, the mouse, the mice, the rats, the human beings, the vermin, all taken care of by Allah how cool is that you are jealous, yet we find that human beings there is was guaranteed to them

00:04:19--> 00:04:34

by Allah subhanho wa Taala and that which they were created for which is the worship of Allah subhanahu wa tada which leads to Jana was not guaranteed to them. Yet you find a human being

00:04:35--> 00:04:48

he engages his entire life in finding that which was guaranteed for him and completely discards that which was not guaranteed for him which is

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

so what kind of minds do we have? What kind of understanding do we have in order to engage in such behavior? A lot of people

00:05:00--> 00:06:01

Who? attallah he says yeah yohannes Oh people with Coronavirus Allah He I remember the name and the bounty of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon you hadn't even heard it in La Jolla, Zoo Mina Santa, is there any being Is there any creator that will grant you that risk besides Allah subhanho wa Taala there is nobody that sustains us besides propolis that he will general there is nobody that provides for us besides Allah subhanho wa Taala yet we find ourselves engaged in that which we engage in that which leads us to that which was made for us, the entire world and everything that is contained in it was made for us. Yet we find ourselves engaging in that which was made for us, and discarding

00:06:01--> 00:06:43

that which we were made for. We were made for the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala or Mahalo to Jean Noah insert in early Abu Dune, and I did not create mankind and Jim kind except that they may worship. So let us work towards that which we were created for and forget about or don't forget about it. But let us not worry so much to the extent that we make it our life purpose, in order to find the risk that was guaranteed for us. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Allah was preserved indeed he is the one who constantly provides now when a person finds himself at times,

00:06:44--> 00:06:46

getting from a certain direction

00:06:47--> 00:07:35

for years on end, he is receiving from his employer for years on end he is receiving from his business. He sees that the risk comes from the business or not from the business, but through the business. Or he sees that that risk comes from or through his boss when he begins to rely on that boss or on that business, for the risk. But Allah subhanahu wa tada sometimes will change that in a split moment. In order for him to understand that he is our boss, you find that a person loses his job, you find that a person's business burns down. Why Because Allah subhana wa tada is reminding you that it is Allah subhanho wa Taala who is

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

a fellow at

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

the Tisha Boone

00:07:45--> 00:07:46

to moon

00:07:47--> 00:08:04

and new moon the new moon Do you see the water that you drink? Are you the ones who bring it down from the cloud or is it is it us that bring it down from the cloud for a tool of a tomato?

00:08:05--> 00:08:09

Do you see that which you plant into the earth and

00:08:12--> 00:08:12

and

00:08:14--> 00:08:15

Tesla owner who

00:08:17--> 00:08:23

is it you who causes it to grow? Or is it us who grow causes it to grow?

00:08:24--> 00:08:31

to more novelty to rune? Do you see the fire that you ignite? And

00:08:33--> 00:08:48

are you the ones who cause the trees to grow from which the fire comes from a national munchy own? Or are we the ones who cause those trees to grow? It is a massive Hannah hula tada ultimately who our risk comes from.

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

There were two brothers

00:08:51--> 00:08:53

and these brothers,

00:08:54--> 00:08:55

they were arguing with each other

00:08:56--> 00:09:15

and one was telling the other that you know risk it will come to me whether I am sitting in my home and doing nothing to attain that risk or not. And the second brother says to him that Allah subhanho wa Taala will not provide for you if you do be sitting and you will die of hunger.

00:09:17--> 00:09:37

So use it here I am going out. I am going to work and look for that risk. So the second brother he goes out and he walks and after some time he comes to an apple tree and he plucks an apple and he says you see Allah subhanahu wa tada provided for me because I went out and looked for that with

00:09:39--> 00:09:40

and he goes back to his brother.

00:09:41--> 00:09:52

And when he gets to the brother He says, you see Allah subhanahu wa tada provided me with this apple because I went out and I looked for it, and then he takes it and he throws it at him

00:09:53--> 00:09:54

and

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

sent his brother and he says yes, but who ate from this apple? Do you not see that?

00:10:06--> 00:10:09

provided for me even though I was sitting in the home.

00:10:10--> 00:10:11

So amongst

00:10:13--> 00:10:27

us It is not our moving on the earth that will provide for us it is not our businesses that will provide us It is not our employers that will provide for us it is Allah subhanho wa Taala but someone may us

00:10:29--> 00:10:33

two brothers who was doing that which Allah subhanho wa Taala was pleased

00:10:34--> 00:10:36

was the first one because you

00:10:38--> 00:10:39

can have one

00:10:41--> 00:10:47

vote and look, look for your risk. Thumbs up man I can go out and tread upon the earth

00:10:50--> 00:10:51

was

00:10:53--> 00:10:56

another was this obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:10:58--> 00:11:17

The two types of risk number one, the one that Allah subhanho wa Taala provides for everyone. This includes the catheter. This includes the machinery This includes the one who is disobedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala also pseudo loss Allahu alayhi wa sallam he mentions in a

00:11:18--> 00:11:51

lecture on us bawana minima, there is no one more. There is no one more patient upon the harm then Allah subhanho wa Taala in the homeland Runa who wanted indeed they call out to him a son. They associate a son with Allah subhana wa tada what loyalzoo and he has his there is he provides for them. We are hammer him and he has Rama upon them imagined whilst they are calling out

00:11:52--> 00:12:24

and associating a partner with Allah subhanho wa Taala that he provides for them and he has urashima upon them. Allah subhanho wa Taala says to do something, what do you mean only him are meaningful to him? The skies were to split asunder from what they were saying that Allah subhanho wa Taala has a son. It whilst they are saying this, Allah subhanho wa Taala continues to provide for them. Allah subhanho wa Taala continues to grant them

00:12:26--> 00:12:26

when

00:12:27--> 00:12:28

a loved one who

00:12:31--> 00:12:34

have a loved one who he

00:12:35--> 00:12:38

would trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala to provide for

00:12:42--> 00:12:54

the loved one who was a Sahabi of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we know very well. And this is a hobby. He once had a beggar who came to his home.

00:12:55--> 00:13:27

And this beggar came to the home and he was asking for something something so while you're on the Allahu anhu goes back into his house, and he begins to look for some Durham's, some gold coins, or some silver coins that he had. And he cannot find this. So he took some time to come back. In the meanwhile, the beggar found a bridle of the horse of earlier on the Allahu anhu that was sitting in the home. So he snatched this bridle and he left he went, he stole it.

00:13:29--> 00:13:47

So an idea of the Allahu anhu came, he noticed that his bridle was missing and this man was gone. So he left it to a muscle panel over time. And he told me his servant that was there that take these gold coins that I was going to give this man and give it and going by a bridle that we need.

00:13:48--> 00:14:32

So he went out to the marketplace. And he looked for a bridle, he found one and he bought it and when he bought this bridle and it came back to earlier the a lot more and then earlier the man who is looking at it, and he says will lie It is as though it is my bridle, the very same one that this man stole. So this man had actually stolen this and taken his risk by a hammer means yet had he waited for a few moments, you would have received the same Durham's that Harley or the loved one who would have given him by they hadn't means. So sometimes we find ourselves trying to hasten our risk,

00:14:34--> 00:15:00

yet it is written for us Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that if a human being was to run away from his risk in the matter, that he runs away from death letter aka Horace Koo Kumba, you will note his race would have found him in the same manner that his death would have found him. So let us not hasten our trust in our Razzaq to provide for us trust in our

00:15:00--> 00:15:30

Was it to provide for us. The next game that we will be discussing is and why? Allah subhanho wa Taala. He mentioned this in a sutra that we all resigned so often in our Salah. He says guru Allahu Ahad say He is Allah, the One. Now this surah is so small in its verses. If we look at it, it is a few verses who who Allahu Allahu Samad Let me read what am unit what am ia kulambu

00:15:31--> 00:15:48

and the surah has ended. Yet it is so vast in meaning that Allah subhanahu wa tada has made it equal to a third of the Quran. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked me companions One day, he says if I had to come near

00:15:50--> 00:16:16

any fee later, is it impossible for one of you to recite a third of the Quran in one night. So, the companions they found this difficult and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them that cold war love is equal to a third of the poor. Now someone may ask, why is it that the surah has so much value in it?

00:16:17--> 00:16:27

The reason is if we take a look at the meanings of pulwama well I had it is Allah subhanho wa Taala discussing Allah.

00:16:28--> 00:16:57

It is Allah subhanahu wa taala talking about himself, Guru Allahu Ahad, say He is Allah the word. So Allah subhanahu wa tada is the only one that is worthy of worship. He is the only one that is unique in his actions, he is unique in his names and his qualities. He is unique in the fact that he is to be worshipped. When the Jews and the Christians

00:16:58--> 00:17:35

they worship they associate partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala. So you find that some some Jews, they claim that Jose is the son of Allah, and the Christians they claim that Raisa is the son of Allah. And when it comes to the Zoroastrians, then they claim that the Son is worthy of worship and the moon is worthy of worship and the idolaters they worship the idols. So when all of these people were doing all of these things, then Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the surah Allah,

00:17:36--> 00:18:25

saying he is Allah, the one the only one worthy of worship. So look at the beauty of our religion, it is based on this rule, it is based on the fact that Allah subhanahu wa tada is the only one worthy of worship some of the lessons that we learn from God who Allah say He is Allah, the One is that Allah subhanho wa Taala there is nothing similar to him. So if a person thinks that perhaps the hand of Allah subhanho wa Taala is similar to the hand of a human being, that this is a completely wrong understanding. Yes, Allah subhanho wa Taala has a hand yes Allah subhanahu wa tada has a foot but ladies that come with me shade, there is nothing similar to him in any way. What who was Sonny

00:18:25--> 00:19:11

Rubenstein? And he is the old hearing the old seeing human being see human beings Yeah, but the hearing of Allah subhanho wa Taala is not like that of a human being. When he hears he hears everything in existence, when he sees he sees everything in existence. So that is why we are not similar and Allah subhanho wa Taala is not similar to us in any way whatsoever. Someone may ask, how is it that these qualities come about? Our minds are too small to fathom. And to understand how these qualities take place. Our minds are too small to understand who Allah subhanho wa Taala is in reality

00:19:12--> 00:19:24

and this is why when you have the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam telling you or ramudu la ha can Nikita Allah worship Allah subhana wa tada as though you see him

00:19:25--> 00:19:59

then never describe this description that you see of Allah subhana wa tada in your mind. Because whatever you have seen in your mind of Allah subhanho wa Taala is not actually the real and true description of Allah subhanho wa Taala our minds are too small to understand who he is. Our minds are too small to fathom who he is. We will only realize this on the day of the AMA when the job is lifted, and we will see Allah subhanho wa Taala this sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala is so

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

mazing to the human being, and so amazing to everything in existence, that Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:20:08--> 00:20:08

the home

00:20:11--> 00:20:12

owner fee

00:20:14--> 00:20:29

fee that they will have in general, whatever the heart's desire, whatever they want of the heart's desire they will have, but we have more than that. What is more than the heart's desire?

00:20:30--> 00:20:39

It is the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala when the hijab is lifted and the people will stare at of Allah subhana wa tada

00:20:40--> 00:20:53

the believers in Allah subhanho wa Taala will be enjoying the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala Imagine seeing the being whom you placed your head on the ground for your entire life.

00:20:54--> 00:21:09

The being home, you gave us a cap for the being whom you fasted the entire month of Ramadan for you gave up all of these desires for the sake of this being You will now see him. Imagine the pleasure that you feel see you make.

00:21:11--> 00:21:37

So Allah subhanho wa Taala is too huge for us to imagine him whatever is in our minds, let us not describe this to anybody else. The third benefit that we can benefit from kulu Allah who say He is Allah the one ultimately all of perfection belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala what an ILA

00:21:38--> 00:22:24

and it is to Allah subhanho wa Taala that is the end. So there is nothing beyond Allah subhana wa attallah there is nothing after Allah subhanho wa Taala there is nothing greater than Allah subhana wa Tada. And that is why he is the ultimate of perfection. When we learn about the Allah and who was being punished, there were some, there were some companions with him. And these companions were being punished one by one, they would say whatever the co founder of coalition wanted them to say, is alert your god they would say yes is all manner to God, they would say yes, because they did not believe in their hearts, that this was the case. But they just said it in order to get away from the

00:22:24--> 00:22:39

punishment. But Billa lipno raba are the Allahu anhu. Being a companion who had emerged in his heart to the extent that even if you were killed, you would he would not give up that Shahada. He continued to say

00:22:42--> 00:23:05

it is only a lie, worship it is only a lie, worship, do whatever you want to do to me, it is only Allah worship. Because this man had tasted kafir. This man had tasted this belief in his heart. He knew what it was to disbelieve in the maker. And then all of a sudden he tasted the beauty of he man, the

00:23:06--> 00:23:53

opening of the chests that the man brings into the heart of a believer. So he continued to hold on to this. And no matter how much we are persecuted in our lives, we should never let go of this man in our hearts. People will come to you and tell you give up your values give up your your your your principles. But don't give us give up give up this man because how long are you going to live in this dunya? How long are you going to live in the studio? room at Medina see Tina Elizabeth II, the age of my own mother, the average age of my oma is between 60 and 70 years. So you will live 60 and 70 years, and then you will die and then they will be the everlasting not 1000 years, not 2000

00:23:53--> 00:24:03

years, not 5000 years, not 10,000 years everlasting forever and ever. It never comes to an end. So if you sacrifice for a little bit in this dunya

00:24:05--> 00:24:53

and you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone until you die, then you will receive everlasting bliss. A person who has a bit of understanding, you will understand that it is a bargain that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given him 50 to 60 years in this dunya in exchange for everlasting bliss. This is not something that a believer even questions he does it without question. So this Islam, that Allah Subhana who Allah has bestowed us with, is the greatest nightmare that a human being can hold on to. And this is why Pablo de Allah and who would say no come on, as an Allah who will Islam we are a people whom Allah subhana wa tada raised with Islam, pharma

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

as an animal, so whenever we choose to have all

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

with anything besides it, Allah subhanahu wa taala will discipline us.

00:25:06--> 00:25:06

So our,

00:25:08--> 00:25:37

our faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala is the prized possession that we have, and we should hold on to it regardless, regardless of what systems are placed into our lives in order to control those lives, remember that the ultimate system and the best system is the system that belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala the Sahaba harrowby Allahu anhu value the man and they value the belief and faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala because remember that people like

00:25:38--> 00:26:23

the Allahu anhu they say that we made idols from dates and we worship those idols. They knew what it was to taste Cofer in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when they enjoyed that belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala, then they never gave up the belief even those of us hab who uttered the word of disbelief but believed in the hearts they remained true believers in the hearts and this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says in them and except for the one who is being completely forced, someone is holding a gun to your head, hey, this believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala you are allowed to utter the word of disbelief, but you will believe in your heart in order to get away from that.

00:26:24--> 00:27:18

He is Allah The only one who is worthy of worship, the only one who is unique in his actions and his names and attributes. The next name is a summit. Allah subhanho wa Taala after he mentioned polvo Allahu Ahad. He mentioned Allah or summit. Allah is a summit. The Arabs used to call a being or a person who had no stomach. They would call this person a summit. They would call this person a summit because this person, it was as though they were saying he is not in need of food and drink. Although this is not true, because a summit is only for Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they would call a person who had no stomach a summit because they felt that this person is so independent that he

00:27:18--> 00:28:06

will never bother about food and drink, he will never need to worry about where his next meal is coming from. Now Allah subhanahu wa tada is a solid because he does not need to eat he does not need to drink he does not need to procreate, Allah subhanho wa Taala does not need to give birth to a child. And that is why the end of the surah says lemmya it he did not give birth what a mule at nor was he given birth to what am I putting the hoopoe on a hat and there is no body that is equal to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, when a person is in dire need, and when a person is in a dire situation, then who will that person go to? Will they go to the beggar on the street? Will they go

00:28:06--> 00:29:00

to the one who is so poor that they cannot feed themselves? Or will they go to the one who is independent of everyone who needs not to be fed? Who needs not to be clothed? Who needs not to be granted some water in order to drink? So a person who understands who a summit is will only go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala even I bus a lot the Allahu anhu he says a summit a say you do let the camela feel that he he is the master who is complete in his mastery was Sharif and ledee camela Fie Shafi and he is the noble one who is complete in his nobility, one lousy, Allah the camela fee ultimately he and he is the great The one who is complete in his greatness will Aleem and Lady

00:29:00--> 00:29:32

Kamala V and the one who is all knowledgeable and he is complete in his knowledge, while Hakeem and Lady Kamala Hekmati and he is the one who is most wise and he is complete in his wisdom, which one of us can claim that we are complete in our wisdom, which one of us can claim that we are complete in our element, and we are complete in our knowledge and we are complete in our mastery, none of us can claim this. It only belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala mm

00:29:34--> 00:29:37

hmm Allahu taala. He mentions a man.

00:29:38--> 00:29:49

He mentions of a man who came to LA sudo masala Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and he asked him, he says that to which Allah Are you calling? So

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

are two What are you calling to? Sort of pseudo lasala hora de He will send them says to Allah Subhana Bhutan, the one whom when ha

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

befalls you he relieves that harm and that distress, the one whom when you are lost in the wilderness, then he is the one who brings you back. The one who when drought afflicts you, then he is the one who causes the crops to grow. That is a summit. He is assuming the one whom everything relies on and he does not rely on anything. So these are the beautiful and glorious Names of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to grant us the ability to worship him whilst understanding these glorious and Beautiful Names. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the ability to call to him using these names, as he has rightfully claimed while he in a smell, and to

00:30:52--> 00:31:03

Allah subhanho wa Taala belong the glorious names federal will be so call out to Him with them. I mean, masala who will send them oh Baraka, Elena Vienna, Mohammed
