Wish me luck R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen illa Allah Al amin will be Hina starin. Also Leona Salim Allah her Tamil MB even more Sally Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge Marian Allahumma salli ala jalta who Salah one has either she Tessa hella Amir sera wala to us serum watch me we'll hire ob canister in we thank Allah subhanahu wa taala for having gathered gathered us here once again and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to surround us with the mela aka and to cause his mercy and His Sakina to descend upon us and to raise us with the MBR Allah hemos Salatu was Salam and those whom he has mentioned with them, I mean,
many times when they recite his reciting in the Koran then we will hear in the Lucha semi Ron Aileen in the Lucha who was semitone bossy in Allah Aziz and Hakeem Allah who will honey you will Hamid. So, we will hear these names. But there is a reason for these names being put together. So why is Al Aziz coupled with Al Hakim al Aziz means the one who has the rule, the one who has honor and authority above the people. So Allah subhanahu wa Tada. He chose to add an Hakeem to this name of his
in order for the people to understand that he has wisdom when he rules and when he has authority over the people. So a person a human being in this world, if he were to try and
engage in that which is authority over the people, then at times he would oppress them, because he will rule by his own desire, rather than that which is best for the people.
But when it comes to Allah subhana wa tada he is Aziz and he is Al Hakim. So he is most wise in the decisions that he makes for the people. So unless you've had who added dispels any doubt in a person's heart that he may have, that Allah subhanahu attallah was not just with him in any way whatsoever. Rather Allah Subhana Allah is most just because behind his rulings are a lot of wisdom or is a lot of wisdom. When we find the name alleghany
being coupled with el Hamid, the most independent is coupled with the one who is most praiseworthy. When a person sees that Allah Subhana who Allah is calling himself most praiseworthy, they may begin to doubt although this is a wrong doubt, and this is wrong understanding they may begin to think that Allah subhanahu wa tada is in need of that praise. Allah subhanho wa Taala needs the people to call out to Him. Allah subhanahu wa taala needs the people to praise him. But Allah subhanho wa Taala dispels that doubt. And he says, who will honey? So he says in Allah who will honey Yule Hamid Allah subhanahu wa tada is Allah honey and he is Al Hamad he is the most independent, so he does not
need your praise or my escort for in nama escuela NFC Omen Canfora for in Allahu Allah Honey, you will Hamid The one who praises and thanks, he thinks for himself. He is the one who benefits from that thinking of Allah subhanho wa Taala woman cafaro and the one who believes in number one honey. So Allah subhanahu Allah is independent. He does not need that person sugar. He does not need that person's email. That person is the only one who was harmed by that he man by by that disbelief
in Allah subhanho wa Taala Amen cafaro in Allahu Allah honey you will Hamid Allah subhanho wa Taala is most independent and most praiseworthy. The names that we will be discussing today in sha Allah Allah
foom Allahu Allah farro
Allah subhanho wa Taala is Allah who he is the one who wipes out the sins. And it is similar in meaning to Elijah food, except that Allah subhanho wa Taala has wulfrun which is His forgiveness, it includes the covering of Asian whereas the Afu of Allah subhanho wa tada it means to wipe out a sin. And this is when these names are used in conjunction with one another, when they are put together a law hole of war, then they will have this distinction between them. But when you use them together, allow for when you use them separately, then they will mean the same thing. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is laughable in that he wipes out the sense and he is a fool in that he forgives the sins by
covering them. And he is a web he who grants His servants the ability to repent. So now we have Allah subhanho wa Taala who is above our soul and he is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful. But if a person were not to turn to Allah subhanahu wa tada that being who is Allah for that being who is a word that being who is Allah far, then that person would not receive the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala or merely so it requires for a person to have the capacity and capability to call out to Allah subhanho wa Taala so he is a world who grants the ability and capacity to call out to Him. So the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala granted us the ability to come to the masjid is a
bounty of Allah subhanho wa Taala had it not been for him you would have not been here for Salah to Lhasa
had it not been for Allah subhanho wa Taala you would have not been a Muslim. Had it not been for Allah subhana wa tada decision for you to have a man in your heart you would have not had a man in your heart so he is a word. He is the one who grants you the ability for your heart to be soft enough to turn to him.
He's awful, and his mouth
he's he's awful and his forgiveness a qualities that are constantly with Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanahu wa tada describes himself and he says what can Allahu Allahu Allah for? Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who pardons and he's most forgiving
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he describes
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describes
Allah subhanho wa Taala his most patient, Lisa hadden us miroir Allah them in Allah. There is no one more patient upon the hardship the harm. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Houma de Lune Allahu Allah, indeed they call a son out to Allah subhanho wa Taala they claim that he has a son
in whom law you are fee him Why are Zuko and he are bullies that he will general continues to give them his afia and he continues to grant them his sustenance. So these people who disbelieve in Allah subhanho wa Taala these people who associate partners with Allah subhanahu wa tada He grants them his alpha and his risk, even though they are calling out partners with him. Now imagine you are a believer in Allah subhanho wa Taala you acknowledge the presence of Allah subhanho wa Taala you don't associate partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala when you turn to rob Boulez that you will
be billed fairly, you have a for effectively, you have to work to Berea then Allah subhanho wa Taala will most definitely forgive you. Allah subhana wa tada will most definitely pardon you.
So never have that doubt in your heart once you have sincerely turned to Allah subhanho wa Taala that he has forgiven you. Because he says that he is a law firm. So when you have that doubt, when you begin to doubt whether Allah subhanho wa Taala is most forgiving. Then you are actually doubting what Allah subhanho wa Taala has described himself as
you are this you are doubting that which Allah subhanahu wa tada has described himself as there is no sin that you have committed, that is too big for Allah subhanho wa Taala. A little bit of the mercy and
Do not fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala is enough to forgive all of your sins.
And the proof of this is that
a person can commit sin after sin after sin after sin in his life.
And one day, he sits back and he says, you know, enough,
I've done enough
and he puts his head down on the ground for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and sheds a tear.
That tear is enough to forgive Whoa, all of his sins that he has committed in his life. This is the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala Chopin wants you to believe that Allah subhanho wa Taala is not most forgiving Allah subhanho wa Taala will not have mercy upon you. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala he calls out to those who are the sinners, and he says, Olia, eBuy de la Vina so for
to mill raw material.
Oh my dear servants, Oh my dear servants, who are these dear servants that Allah subhanho wa Taala is calling out to
Allah Vina a surah for Allah and fusi him those who extravagant with themselves, they cross the boundaries with regards to their own souls. They are oppressed the own souls by committing so many sins Allah subhanho wa Taala is calling out to them. Yeah, he Bertie. Oh my dear servants.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to forgive you will who will lead the Yuk velluto betterman Reba de and he is the one who accepts the Toba from his servants so nobody has the right to tell you You are not forgivable by Allah subhanho wa Taala nobody has this right. Even if you have committed murder Allah subhanho wa Taala can forgive you if you turn to Him sincerely. So what subhana wa Tada. He says in Ohio funeral new batch me. Don't lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives all sins in who who Allah for him? Indeed he is Allah for Allah him.
Good deeds are a manner and a way in which Allah subhanho wa Taala causes your bad deeds to be wiped out completely.
So he says in Al Hassan Ji youth Hey Vanessa yet indeed the good deeds, they wipe out and they remove the bad deeds. Right. So you have committed a sin and you come to the masjid you perform your Salah, your Salah is wiping out that sin. Not only that, but Allah subhanho wa Taala goes one step further and he says in mentor Baba, Amina Amina, I'm alongside her except for the one who turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala he repents to Allah subhanho wa Taala and he believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala and he does good deeds fellow Ola iica you bet Do you love him or not? So those are the ones whom Allah subhanho wa Taala turns the evil deeds, the bad which they have done, Allah subhanahu
attallah turns it into good deeds. Imagine all of those years of sinning, what happens when you sincerely turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala and really want change in your life. Allah subhanho wa Taala turns those mountains of bad deeds into mountains of good deeds. Allahu Akbar,
how much more merciful and forgiving can a being be
nobody is more merciful and forgiving then Allah subhanho wa Taala. So
this is the reality with your good deeds and how they wipe out your bad deeds. When it comes to the calamities in your life as well. The calamities that you suffer the problems that you go through. So Allah subhanho wa Taala inflicted hardship on you. All of a sudden you find that your business is not doing as well. All of a sudden you find that Allah subhanho wa Taala he tested you with an accident, you lost your arm, you lost your leg, you lost the ability to see. So someone may think and this is the attitude of a disbeliever that Allah subhanho wa Taala is punishing me because Allah subhanho wa Taala has removed all of this from me. This bounty that He has given me he has removed
it so he is punishing. But do you know what the attitude of a believer is he understands that
Allah subhanho wa Taala is removing his sins with these calamities. Allah subhanho wa Taala is purifying him with these calamities to the extent that when a person reaches on the day of tiama and he sees those who have been tested by Allah subhana wa tada the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that this person will wish that he was inflicted with him in his flesh, such that it tore his flesh apart so that he would be able to reach the level that these people would act. The people that were tested by Allah subhanho wa Taala. You have difficulty in your life, you have problem you have hardship, know that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had hardship
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had problems and what have known katabi Allahu anhu walks into the house of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he is sitting there. In fact, he is lying down. So he looks at him and he sees that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is lying down on that which was a straw mat. And his pillow is made up of a few skins animal skins that are put together and they are animal skins that are hanging in the house of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam so Homer, Brody, Allahu anhu this disturbs him, because this is his messenger. This is the one who threw him he was guided to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he tells him, he says that Caesar
and kisara they have these pearls and these jewels and they are sitting on, you know, cushions of silk, yet you Oh Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam look at your condition. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he draws his attention to something amazing that if we use as the principle in our lives, we will never go wrong. He tells him and he says that Allah suka Omar, does it not please you over over and the dunya whom Allah Allah, Allah, the dunya is for them. Those cushions are for them, they can have what they want. Well, here are two lenah and Allah subhanho wa Taala has made the here of course, is that not enough for you? Don't you realize that Allah subhanho
wa Taala has granted us Alfa DOS, what do we need of the dunya? Since Allah subhanahu wa taala has given us this. So these calamities these trials, these tribulations, that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam withdrew by losing his children
by kurush, harming him to the extent that he was pelted in life.
These calamities that he went through a suburb are a reason for him to enter into earlier dose, the highest positions in general. So
when we go through these problems, let us realize that Allah Subhana Allah is Allah for and he is forgiving us. He is getting rid of our sins, and
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions in a hadith as the number the other number I'm doing them but that a servant he committed a sin for Kerala homophily. So he says, Oh ALLAH forgive me, for Kerala, huzzah Baraka to Allah so Allah subhanho wa Taala Most Exalted is He says,
Bob de them Ben Fatima and nella hora benya, who do beat them be wired for them, we refer to them, that my servant, he has committed a sin. And he knows that he has a Europe who forgives the sins and He takes and punish us for the sins I have forgiven him. And then that person goes back and he commits a sin again. So he goes back and he asks Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah forgive me. So Allah subhanho wa Taala repeats, that my servant knows that I forgive and I punish for sins. So I have forgiven him. And then this person does this once again. So Allah subhanahu, WA, tada, repeats once again. And then he says, Let him do whatever he wants to do after this day, I have forgiven him. And
what does this due to the psyche of a believer, you realize that no matter how many times you have sinned, even if you sit in the morning, and you seek forgiveness, and then you sit in the afternoon, and you seek forgiveness, then you sit at night and you seek forgiveness. Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive you, so long as you are sincere, in that Toba And so long as you continue to ask Allah subhanahu wa tada for that forgiveness. And this is why he says we're in need of love.
Limon tub indeed I am the one who constantly forgives The one who turns to me why? Mohammed Allah subhana wa Tada. When he does, he believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala. He makes sure that he nurtures that Eman with Allah subhanho wa Taala and he does good deeds
while mila dasari ha, and he does good deeds. So Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah forgives him. So let us never doubt the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala is how far Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives again and again and again, no matter how many sins we have committed, then we have the name Allah Allah. Allah Allah, Allah Allah.
Allah Allah, Allah, Allah and l mu Tian. Wahoo a lolly you love him, Allah subhanho wa Taala describes himself as the exalted, allow him the great he is the one who describes himself sub behaves smart because the sooner that we hear so often in sola to Joomla, glory be to with the name of Europe are
the one who is the highest available hi Eb, wash your hair that you will be removed, he is the Knower of the unseen and that which is seen and he is the greatest, the highest. So Allah subhanahu wa taala is established above the Throne, or Rahim Allah Allah Allah says,
The Most Merciful is established above the Throne, he has established Himself above the Throne, the qualities of Allah subhanho wa Taala are high in the nature and they are the highest in the nature. And the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala compels all of creation, and nothing at all whatsoever compels Allah subhanho wa Taala is a proof that Allah subhanahu wa taala is high in his nature as well in his rulings as well. In his being as well, he is the highest and the proof and evidence for this one who will call hillfolk A baddie and he is the one who is aloka here. He is the compiler above his servants to allodial Mela aka Tor roho the mela HCA and a row and I mean, who is gibreel?
They go up to Allah subhanho wa Taala so he is above la here so I didn't tell him
the good word goes up to Allah subhanahu wa tada what llama do sorry. Oh, your Pharaoh and the good deeds are the ones that raise these.
The good deeds are the ones that raise this good word to Allah subhanho wa Taala Well, yes, I do. Illa illa taib and there is nothing that goes up to Allah subhanho wa Taala except that which is good.
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he went up for Mirage to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala. He went up for me, Raj, to speak to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when he went when he was on his way down, he met musala his salat wa salam who told him go back up to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala was above all of them.
And this is why musataha salatu salam would continue to tell him go back up when he would come down he would say look, Allah subhana wa tada has now prescribed so many Salam upon me, upon me and my oma, it started at 50 and it went down all the way to five. So every time you came back down to Musa moosari salatu salam would send him back up to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is proof enough that Allah subhanho wa Taala is above us all, where there is no creation whatsoever. So there is no mixing between creator and creator, maybe between creator and the created. So we are the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala the universe is the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala the arrow Shan the
melodica or the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is above the mold. He is where no creation is. And this is why we find Allah Subhana who Allah says to us, I mean to manifest summer he is the fabric for either here Timo, have you become secure or have you become so secure of the one who is above
and Josefa be cool, that he will cause the earth to swallow you up completely?
Either here to move so it would be moving that Earth that you are so normal accustomed to seeing as something sabbat something completely normal on Earth. It is a first
It doesn't move all of a sudden it is moving, Who did that? And Latif is the one who is above. In the La Jolla union Carey moon yes de la la Abuja de el de menos Cephalon hari betaine. Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is bashful and he is most kind, he has this bashfulness such that he is ashamed to return the hands of the one who has raised them to him with nothing at all. So when a person calls out to Allah subhanho wa Taala then they raise their hands to herbalist that
they know in reality where Allah subhana wa Taala is without anyone having to tell them that Allah subhanahu attallah is above them. And
when you're around,
was this believing in Allah subhanho wa Taala and he was so arrogant that he began to claim that he is our Rob. Then he told her man who was one of his advisors, he told him he says yeah Harmon, igneous or halali Abu Bab, build a tower for me, so that I will be able to go to the gates of heaven. Why do you want to go to the gates of heaven? Lally AppFolio Illa Illa he Moosa, so that I may be able to see the God of Moosa or in Nila Abu kariba. And I think he is lying. So if you're around actually knew, or his intellect told him, that if I want to find Allah Subhana Allah I need to go up. And this is why he asked her man that built me a tower, I want to see Allah subhanahu
attallah Yes, this was done out of defiance. This was done out of arrogance. But he understood that if I want to meet Allah, and deep down he obviously knew that he was not God. So he says that if I want to meet Allah, I have got to go up. And Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this in the Quran. So we know that Allah subhanahu attallah is above us. And we know that the rule and the qualities of Allah subhanho wa Taala most exalted, so what does this do for us? It makes us humble. It brings us down to the ground, where we understand that Allah subhana wa Jalla There is nothing more powerful than him. There is no body that can do anything to us. If Allah subhanho wa Taala is
with us. And there is nobody that can turn away the command and the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala regarding us, if he is to command
about something to do with us. If Allah subhanho wa Taala was to send down his command for a punishment, nobody, nobody would be able to remove that punishment. And if Allah subhanho wa Taala was to have Rama upon us, then nobody can come as a barrier between that Rama of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the servant because Allah subhanho wa Taala is above everything. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us the ability to bear this in mind when we call out to Him. I mean, or sun Allahu wa selama or Baraka, Elena being 100 or other early he was a big man
