manda Cuban dinar Rama, Allah Tala was once walking by a graveyard.
And as he walked by the graveyard he remarks and he said Misaki in the dunya Hora juman Ha, woman out we have mafia. He said How unfortunate are these people of the dunya that they left this dunya they left this world and they didn't get to taste the best of it.
So those were with him they asked him called warmer out here, Buffy what is the best of this world?
So he said to the malefics in LA he Azerbaijan had battle. He said it is knowing Allah subhanaw taala and having love for Allah azza wa jal.
This is the greatest of the dunya
How difficult is life?
When a person does not know Allah subhanaw taala?
How difficult is it for them to know how to react to the events happening in their life? How difficult is that? Is it for them to know what their role the responsibility is in this world?
How difficult is it to live? When you don't know who the human being is to begin with? What the human being is to begin with, what your role is in life, what your purpose is in this world.
So what he said is imminently true
that those who do not have the relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. Those who don't know Allah azza wa jal, they live a very difficult life.
And those who know Allah azza wa jal, they tasted the best of what there is in this world.
And so in today's football, I want to speak shortly about one of the names of Allah subhanaw taala. Just so that we can develop some knowledge of Allah azza wa jal, so that we can know how to have some form of relationship with our Creator Subhana Allah. Allah gives us His names and attributes, so that we develop a relationship with Him, so that we understand who Allah subhanaw taala is, Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran,
Leo fear home home, why is he the human family in no foreign shockula He says that he may give them in full the reward and that means that he may increase for them their bounty, and that he is a foreigner forgiving and shockula the one who is appreciative. Allah subhanaw taala gives himself these names a Shatkin an attributes and innate attributes of being appreciative and a shockula subhanho wa taala, either the one hand by His will and His generosity, he always increases
he increases for the one who gives him sugar literally is to increase something. Allah subhanaw taala is a Shaku and that when you give him something Subhanahu wa Taala he increases it. linguistically, the Arabs would say a damper Shaku the animal, the beast that is shackled the horse, the camel, what did they mean by that? They meant you give it a little bit of food, a little bit of water, and it would go a long distance, it will give you a great amount of output, even though you gave it a small amount of inputs, a small amount of water and food and it gave you a lot of energy. So they would say this animal is shampoo, they would also say out in the shuffle the land that is
shackled, you will give a very little water and yet somehow it would give you a lot of produce. It would give you a lot of fruits, what you gave was a little and yet the reward was multiplied. So they would call it shockula. And this is the reality of understanding Allah subhanaw taala either with this name of being a Shaku is that he is the one who appreciates and increases the very little that you present Allah azza wa jal you gain some very little and
you gave him very little in devotion. Yet Allah subhanaw taala took it and he multiplied its reward. He increased its reward, and he gave you in this dunya and he gives you in the next but the key is for you to have a relationship with Allah azza wa jal and through this name of being a Shaco. The key is you have to give him something. You have to present something you can't go with nothing.
Allah gives, He takes what is little from you, and He multiplies you gives you more back. But you have to give something. Allah subhanaw taala says, all my active has written Musee de la houfy HyperSnap whoever commits a good deed, we will increase for him the good. Allah subhanaw taala will give you an increase in it in the home of oran shellcode indeed He is Forgiving and Appreciative, any good deed, even the small good deeds are glorified in this religion.
Not because of the smallness of the deed, but because of the greatness of the one who appreciates the good that we do.
We know our religion. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us if you remove something harmful from the street, this is a super fun. If you smile in the face of your brother, this is a sadhaka the smallest of deeds, kissing the hand of your mother taking care of an animal. These small deeds are ones that are appreciated by Allah subhanaw taala because you're dealing with a *hole you're dealing with the one who is the most appreciative. You may forget these deeds, you pick up some literally thrown in the garbage, you forget that you did it. Allah subhana wa Tada did not forget. I shuffled and does not forget them. I shuffle rewards them and increases it's good. Our
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us it took me now well, I'll be shocked if I'm wrong. He said protect yourself. guard yourself against the hellfire, even if it is with half of idiots. And you think about this statement of our prophets of Allah who
you may be above receiving half of the dates. If someone took a date and broken in half, and gave you half you may say I don't want it. I'll take the one that's untouched.
Yet Allah subhanaw taala if someone gave even that small amounts in southern Africa, with sincerity, the prophets of Allah Allah Who are they will send them says this may protect the person from the hellfire. So he tells you guard yourself against the hellfire, even if all you're giving is half of a day's Allah subhanaw taala is a shocker.
And he will give you when you give to Allah azza wa jal the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us they they run now Hadouken Minella
he said do not let any one of you belittle anything that is good. Do not belittle any good deeds. Do not ever be the person who says you know this this is too small of a deed. This is too small of a good deed. I'm gonna do something else. Never do that. He's an even if it is meeting your brother with a cheerful face. Even if the good deed is that when you see a Muslim brother you smile. You're cheerful.
He's a nurturer. Never be Lilith. Why? Because you are dealing with a shareholder Subhana wa Tada. You're dealing with the one subhanaw taala can take that good deed and give you multiples in reward in return.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once he said
manfaat Allah saw in Cana eight con the rock metahuman and now whoever feed someone who is fasting,
it may be what freeze their neck from the hellfire.
Some of the companions that came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said Allah so Allah, this, what you said, prefers the wealthy over us. He said, The wealthy Sahaba they can buy a meal, and they can feed the person who's fasting. It said, We're poor, we don't have anything.
So we don't get the reward.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, this reward is even for the One Who fetches a cup of water and gives it to the one who's fasting. Just go get the water and give it to the one that's fasting, you will get the same reward.
Because it's not enough to deed it's another one Subhan Allah Allah who appreciates the good deeds that we do. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us manakala Hashem Nikita villa, Farah will be Hassan. Whoever recites a single lecture from the book of Allah will receive a good deed and the good deed is multiplied by 10.
And then he said, a pool Alif Lam him how well I can leave on how to follow I haven't heard from him and half and the Prophet sallallahu sallam said I'm not saying any flan name is a part of is a letter is a word is it No I'm saying Ellis is a lecture that you will be rewarded one reward multiplied by 10. And learn as a lecture you will be rewarded one reward multiplied by 10. And meme is the letter one reward multiplied by 10. All of this reward right
or sometimes when I'm younger, and our teachers will tell us read the Quran each letters are award and each reward is multiplied by 10. I'd say why like why all these numbers that you realize the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is teaching us this for us to understand who is it you're dealing with? You're dealing with Allah subhanaw taala. And just the small effort you present, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will give you a reward and multiply the reward on top of it, to tell you given efforts to tell you take a step towards Allah subhana wa Tada to tell you present something with sincerity to Allah azza wa jal. We know the hadith of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
that a man was in the deserts
and he was thirsty. And he finally comes across a well, and he gets himself some water and he punches his thirst. And then you look to see a dog, and the dog is also thirsty. And he says, This dog is in the same situation I was in. So he goes down into the well again.
And he fills his slipper with water and he comes out and he gives it to the dog. And the Prophet sallallahu where it will send them says, For Shaka Allahu Allah, who, for woofie Radha who had hullavington over for an ova.
Allah subhanaw taala appreciated. Fisher for Allah whenever Allah appreciated what he did, and forgave his sins and entered him into Janna, just forgiving water to a dog. Why? Because of his sincerity, and because he is dealing with a lord subhanho wa Taala who appreciates the good that we put forward. We know the hadith of our Prophet Sall Allahu Allah, He will send them all of these Hadith are telling you what, don't give up on the good deeds.
Even more than this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us this world is for four people he's in the first is a man whom Allah has given him knowledge and Allah has given him wealth. So he gives for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. He said, and it is for a second person who sees the first man. Allah has given him knowledge but has not given him wealth. So he sees the first person and he says if only I had the money he had, I would give just like him. He says, For whom I mean the law he Siwa they are equal in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala the generosity of your Lord Subhana wa Tada is just having the sincere, truly sincere intention to do something good. Even if you are
not capable of doing that good deed, Allah will reward you as if you did that good deed. Why? Because he is shockula Subhana wa Tada. Even the pure sincere intention to do good and Allah will reward you as if you did the good because this is how he appreciates his servants and the good that they bring forward.
And look at how Allah subhanaw taala points, our, our our eyes to this reality throughout the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala says Leo Ophea, who modular home was even somebody that he may give them, compensate them for their good way as either home and to increase from His bounty subhanaw taala he doesn't just compensate your good you do something good. He says okay, I give you back good in return equal for equal No. He gives you in return while you're the the human full body and he increases for them out of His Bounty in the hole of food on Shaco He is Forgiving and he is appreciative when they upset a fascinating new this goofy HyperSnap whoever commits a good deed we
will increase for them what is good in the whole a full on shortcode He is Forgiving and he is appreciative. Allah says Allah who may Usher with a fear. When are they in amazi they will have an paradise whichever they desire, whatever they want, that's it's no wonder they never see it and we will give them even more than what they desire. Things that you cannot even desire. You don't even know that. Allah subhanaw taala will give you of them. Latina Al husana was Jada Allah says to those who do good, they will have good was Jada and an increase in more, even more they will have
all of these verses are telling you you're dealing with a lord subhanaw taala he's not going to give you back equal to what you give him. He's gonna give you far more than what you give him Subhana water either. In the Lila yells at him, it's quite as rotten. Allah does not cause injustice. Even an atom's waits. When Tebow has an attorney will pay for her and if it is a good deed, he will increase and multiply it. If you do the smallest of wrong, Allah will not punish you more than what you have done. But if you do good, he will multiply your good
If you do good, it will be multiples of good that you will see in return. Subhana wa Tada is why our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, mentor ZocDoc viaggiare Tamara, whoever gives sadaqa that is equal to a date just one date of sadaqa mill Caspian from pure wealth, halal wealth. He said Allah subhanaw taala will take this, and he will grow it, just like any of you raises a horse. When the horse is first born, it is weak, it can barely stand, but they raise it and they feed it and they train it until the horse is strong. He said, just like you do this, Allah will raise the Son of God that you give until you come on the day of judgment and it is like the mountain of hurt. The
person gave one date of sutra sincerely, from pure Hana and wealth. Allah subhanaw taala will grow it until it is like the mountain of arts. And you look throughout the Quran and the Sunnah. You see this theme over and over again.
Yusuf Ali Hassan
gives up sacrifices being a servant, in the home of a wealthy person, where he's living in the luxury of his house, he gives it up for the sake of Allah, what does Allah do? Allah brings him out of prison as a king.
Jaffa even Abu Qatada, the alarm goes and he fights in battle.
Until both of his arms are cut off, and he is killed, what does our Prophet say? He says Aurora Hill and Phil Jana Adela Allah Who will be the raw ie Jenna Haney, Minneapolis. He says I can see him in paradise right now. Allah has replaced his two arms with two wings that are made of gems, made of rubies and gems. You'll see you will fill Jana there could have been somebody who has trouble in an area. He said the Prophet said he is flying in paradise. He is eating from its fruits and he is drinking from his rivers. He gave up his arms for the sake of Allah. Allah replaced it with wings that are made of jewels. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, we know the hadith of Sodom,
why is the Allah one
of the 10 who are giving glad tidings of Jannah this young man was going to be the one of the leaders, if not the leader of yesterday, of the city, that would become Medina. Yeah, he met the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and he accepted Islam. And he followed the prophet the power that would have been his he gave it to the Prophet Sall Allahu Allah, he was sending him and followed him until he died. What did the Prophet SAW Allah where are they he was sent him saying, Oh, I said, Gardena, feminine Metallica, Yamuna, Jeunesse, et cetera, et Allah and he said, 70,000 of the angels came down to carry the funeral procession of Saudi Allahu Allah and He gave up something for the
sake of Allah. Look at how Allah subhanaw taala rewarded him. Look at how Allah azza wa jal took care of him. And we see this again throughout the Sierra. We see the story of on the center of the Allahu wa Ana was kept prisoner in Mecca, torn away from her husband. Her husband was going for Hinshaw. She was going for hedgerow with him, they prevented her. They said if you go you can't take your child. And so they were pulling on the child until they dislocated his arm. She saw this she started to cry and she said I'm staying in Mexico with my child. But every day she wanted to go to Medina to perform the Hijra. They said she would walk to the boundary of Mecca looking towards
Medina because she wanted to go but she couldn't go. Then finally, her family felt sympathy for her. And they told her you can go and she didn't want to wait an extra minutes, afraid that they might change their mind. So she took whatever she had started walking towards Medina, or Ceman, even upon ha but the Allahu Akbar at this time, he's not Muslim. He comes and he sees a woman with a child walking by themselves on the path to Medina. So where are you going to go to Medina? Is it by yourself walking? She said, Yes.
So he said no, he was not Muslim, but he had chivalry.
He had generosity. He said, No, you're gonna go on my camel. And he got off his camel. And she got on and he walked and he led her all the way from Mecca to Medina. Until he got to the outskirts of Medina. She came down. He took his camera he left and she remarked she said I know Allah will appreciate what he did.
And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam conquered Mecca,
and he accepted Islam, the Prophet sallallahu and you sent him the people of Mecca. People like Earth magic.
but they were afraid the prophet is going to take revenge against them and said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Where's this man even thought, hmm? And he came forward. And the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said take this these are the keys of the Kava. Take them
lie and zero harming Camilla Bonner. No one will take this from you, except that they are a tyrant. And he gave it to her Snazzle the Allah who won the keys of the caravan. And until today, the offspring of Earth man everyone can have have the keys to the cabin. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam honored him for the good that he did. We see this throughout our religion, you give up something for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, and Allah azza wa jal will always appreciate the good that we give for the sake of Allah subhana wa rnfl.

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. Who is it he was the woman water
throughout the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala when he speaks about his attributes of being a Shaco he pairs it with two other attributes. Well, Kevin, Allah has Shaq urine Idema. Allah is appreciative and he is Aileen that he is knowledgeable. Why does Allah pair his appreciative nature with his knowledge? Because Subhanallah sometimes in life, we help people we help other people. We do them a favor. We help them out here and there. And they don't thank you. They don't appreciate it. Why? Because they don't understand what you did for them. Maybe they don't know you did it behind their backs. Or maybe even if they do no they don't understand how you did them a good favor. So they
don't thank you and they don't appreciate you for it. But Allah is appreciative and he's also Anina he's all knowing, so any good you do Allah azza wa jal knows it and he subhanaw taala will appreciate it. The other name of Allah that He pairs with being shackled is referred forgiving. And the scholars say Why does Allah pair these two together? In the opener that Allah for on Shabbat indeed our LORD is forgiving, and he is appreciative. And they said this is because the greatest form of appreciation is Allah forgiving your sins. And so if you want Allah Subhana Allah to forgive your sins, do good deeds, Allah will appreciate it and he will forgive our sins. Now there's three
other points before we conclude, number one, in order to have a relationship with a shekel subhanho wa taala. In order to receive his appreciation, you have to give manifester and movement competent Courbet dunya the first Allahu Anhu COVID yelman piano, whoever removes the difficulty from a believer in this dunya Allah will remove the difficulty for them on the Day of Judgment. Whoever makes easy something for another Muslim in this world, Allah will make it easy for them something that in the next world, you do something Allah will give you something even more, something even better, but you have to do something for the sake of Allah. The second is to worship Allah often. If
you truly believe and the depths of your heart that Allah is appreciated. If you really believe this, that Allah will appreciate your good, then you will take advantage by doing good deeds, big and small, you will not see them as being insignificant. You will try your best to do as they're a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said is a farmer to Sarah will philia Hajikko for you, that's Infineon. If you see the Day of Judgment happening and in your hand there is a seed that let them plant that said, why because you know Allah is appreciative. You know that Allah will reward you for that good deeds, but to have that ability, you do the good deeds, and you take advantage of them.
And you don't be lazy because you believe that Allah azza wa jal will appreciate the good. And the final point is to be sincere. Allah is a shortcode he appreciates the good, but only if it comes with sincerity. Only if we do it's only for the sake of Allah azza wa jal. We don't do it so that people appreciate us and praise us, but only that Allah azza wa jal appreciates us. And so if we keep these three together, we will have a relationship with Allah azza wa jal through his name and shockula May Allah azza wa jal appreciate our good and inspire us to do more good I mean
