are a people who are in the greatest of need of understanding the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we find around us so many problems that are, that are these toxic problems that are hurting this ummah, that are destroying this community that are tearing the community apart. Whether these problems are the problems of backbiting, people who are turning against each other slandering each other, whether it is the problems of people spreading false rumors about each other, to the point that they will even spread false rumors about the scholars and their honor, or they will spread false rumors about the mosques, and the schools and the places that are dedicated to a loss

00:00:43--> 00:01:25

of Hannah Woods Island, where people were spreading rumors and slanders against each other, or people who are harming each other and cheating each other in business, or people who are spreading lies about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and about Islam. All of these defects that we have in our community, all of these defects that are harming our community, and tearing ourselves apart without any help, even from our enemies. Rather, we ourselves are the ones tearing ourselves apart. Where did these defects come from? How do these defects come in emanates from, they come from the realization that the person has forgotten Allah subhanho wa Taala. And not only have they

00:01:25--> 00:01:59

forgotten a lot as origin, but they've forgotten the greatness of Allah subhana wa Tada. And the moment you forget the greatness of Allah subhana wa tada is the moment that you stop fearing a law and revering Allah subhanho wa Taala. When you understand the greatness of a law, you revere him, and you fear Him. And the moment you stop understanding the greatness of a law is the moment that you stop fearing him, and you stop reviewing him. And this is why the scholars say we'll call you environmental light to it, he says coolermaster

00:02:01--> 00:02:44

Billa is that to help and be law, he said, whenever you increase in your knowledge of the law, then you will also increase in your fear. And in your reverence of Allah subhanaw taala we'll call it an apple align Cardinal Health and he said in every time your knowledge decreases, or your knowledge becomes deficient than indeed your fear of a lot as well be decreases and also becomes deficient. And this is the reality in this dunya that know that no one will enter into Jenna, no one will enter into paradise, except that they are fearful of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In this world, no one enters into paradise except that they feared a lot in this world. And unless the pilots die that says In

00:02:44--> 00:03:24

the end, we're living in a home I mean, either you're being born in either bottom beam, or you will not move. And he said that those who are fearful of the punishment of their Lord, indeed, the punishment of their Lord is that which they are not safe. So those who feel in this dunya that they are not safe from the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala They are the ones who are saved from the punishment of Allah in the next world, and those who feel secure in this world, immune in this world from the punishment of a law, they are the ones who will be exposed to the punishment of a law in the next world. And this is why the Prophet Sall Allahu Allah, you send them, his face would begin

00:03:24--> 00:04:06

to whiten out of his fear of a law, the moment you would see the winds start to blow, or the skies begin to change because of his fear of the punishment of a loss of an Odile despite his connection to a lot, despite the revelation coming down to him. So Lola, why do you sell them simply seeing the skies change or the winds increase would make him some law? Why don't you send them increase in his fear of a loss of power with Allah fearing that punishment was going to come down and punish him? And for this reason, Allah subhanho wa Taala throughout the Quran, constantly pushes us to recognize the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala to recognize the greatness of Allah azza wa jal and for

00:04:06--> 00:04:50

this reason, Allah subhana wa tada sent us a verse in the Quran that is better than all of the verses in the Quran, a verse that was given greatness over all the other verses in the Quran, the verse that even Mr. Rude or the Allahu unsaid, Mammon, semi Mammon, Minister, not when an old one so one of them and is and could see he said that there is nothing that Allah has created no sky nor Earth, there is no Valley nor nor mountain that a law has created that is greater than a it's an quotacy, greater than this verse that Allah Subhana Allah has revealed to us. And at the end of the verse, Allah subhana wa tada ends it by telling us and describing himself and saying, well, who Li

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

Li You love him that indeed he is allowed allottee the most high end of him the one who is the most great, the one who is full of greatness and the scholars

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

They spoke about this that a lot of zildjian calls himself LLVM calls himself the greatest and they mentioned and then a man who is the child of the Mets and holla they said all of your faith is your ability to feel and to connect to a loss of handle to Allah being allow him that all of faith is feeling a loss of hundreds either emotionally connecting to a las panatela spiritually connecting to a mosque and with it being an all in one evangelica morona Allah be talented, smooth, loving Furukawa and they said because of this, Allah ordered us to constantly repeat his name LLVM while we're performing our request in our prayer for this mural because of him, so glorified the name of

00:05:44--> 00:06:27

your Lord allows him and this is why Allah subhana wa tada as well. When he described the person who is full of arrogance, whom Allah subhanaw taala throws him into the hellfire. He says about him, that his first blame and his first fault in no Akan la Minami La La him that indeed this was a man who did not believe in a lot being a lot of him as if Allah subhana wa tada is saying to us, that the moment you stop recognizing that a lot as Elohim is the moment that you fall into arrogance, and you fall into sins, and you fall into the Hellfire, and no one can ally me no Bella, he loves him. He was someone who did not believe that a law was allowed him and who is it? And what does it mean

00:06:27--> 00:07:10

that Allah subhanaw taala has allowed him and Avi is the one who has gathered all of the great and the noble attributes altogether. He is the one who has gathered together the greatest attributes of honor, and the greatest attributes of power, and the greatest attributes of grandeur, that he gathered together the attributes of glory, and beauty and generosity, that he is the one who has gathered all of the attributes that the hearts love, and that the hearts are content with Allah subhanho wa Taala has gathered all of these attributes together and this is why he is allowing him and as for honey, Rama to light, he said

00:07:11--> 00:07:49

that this attribute of greatness, the attribute of being azeem is something that is only for Allah subhanho wa Taala. But Allah Subhana, which is sometimes give some of the people a minor form of alima alima doing alvina he gives them a minor form of greatness in this world. So some people in this dunya when we see them, we attribute to them a minor form of greatness, a greatness because of their wealth, or a greatness because of their knowledge, or a greatness because of their their fame or because of their status or because of their beauty.

00:07:50--> 00:08:30

And a loss of hanno tireless and he says, and he continues, and he says that no one can be considered all them. Because none of these people have actually reached true perfection. In those attributes. Even if we consider someone to be great in this world in terms of his wealth, his wealth is still defective. Even if we consider someone to be great in terms of their beauty, their beauty is still defective. No matter how much fame a person has, there's always going to be someone who never heard of them, there's always going to be someone who doesn't care for them. Even when that person dies. In a couple of years, there are people who are born who don't know about them and don't

00:08:30--> 00:09:11

care about them. So no matter the theme that that person has, that theme is defective, no matter. No matter how much knowledge a person has, they will never have perfect knowledge, their knowledge will eventually become outdated. No matter how much we speak about the greatness of the scholars of the past the scholars of history or science or math, their knowledge has probably already become outdated. No matter how beautiful a person is. They're always there's always someone in some society in some community who doesn't consider their attributes to really be beautiful. And you have to understand this because this is that we understand that the great attributes only belong to a last

00:09:11--> 00:09:55

parameter either and that Allah is Alavi him because he is the only one who has reached perfection in all of his attributes, and that he is the one who is a Rahim and a Rahman, the one who is the most merciful to the point of perfection. And there are lots of anoeta Allah is L carrying the most generous to the point of perfection. And then a loss of final it's either isn't it is to the point of perfection. He is the most honorable of the Almighty to the point of perfection. And this is what makes a loss of Hannah to Allah and Avi him that he is the only one that reaches the absolute point of perfection in all of his attributes. Lisa Kenneth Lee, there is nothing similar to a loss of

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

Hannah with Tyler. He has a lot of him in his hearing. He has been in his car

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

He has an AVI in his knowledge, his knowledge is the greatest and his power is the greatest and his wisdom is the greatest and his strength is the greatest and his kingdom is the greatest and his authority is the greatest. And his beauty is the greatest and his mercy is the greatest and his kindness is the greatest. Every attribute that belongs to a lot of him is the greatest and the perfect and this is why this name of allah subhana wa tada is a name that guides you to every single one of the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. When you recognize that a lot is a loving, you're also recognizing that his mercy is the best when you recognize that a lot isn't all the time you're

00:10:39--> 00:11:08

also recognizing that his power is the best and the most perfect. When you recognize that Allah is in our lien. You are recognizing and affirming the perfection of every other one of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala and of His attributes, and this is the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and from the greatness of Allah just to think about it, and to increase this greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala in your heart that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, What are the fcbd? Mr. Matt was sabya

00:11:09--> 00:11:14

when orderliness several einzelne kursi illa Kahan cotton femal, McAfee,

00:11:15--> 00:12:00

McAfee facade. He said that the entire seven heavens and the seven skies, all compared to the throne of the loss of hanno tada is simply like a ring that is thrown into a desert. Imagine a ring that is thrown into the desert, it's insignificance compared to the throne of a lot, not even Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is all of the seven heavens and we simply live within one of the seven heavens, the first of which, imagine how small we are and how insignificant we are and how how insignificant we are compared to a loss of Hannah was either and he is allowed him and Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and now he's put see that Allah subhana wa tada says, I'll keep

00:12:00--> 00:12:44

Rio de de de la the Metro is that he he said that pridefulness is my pridefulness is my room will keep very well Kimberly will although metal izadi. And that lovely. My greatness is my clothing feminazi I need from a NASA I need to be worried at a minimum after half an hour. He said whoever competes with me and either of them, then I will throw them into the hellfire. When you truly understand that a lot is a lot of him that no one has true greatness or excellence or perfection other than a law, you recognize that there is no one who can compete with a lion any of these categories. And when you recognize this, then you recognize that there is no other theme other than

00:12:44--> 00:13:10

a law. And when you recognize that there is no law theme, other than a law, there is no greatness attributed to anyone other than Allah subhanho wa Taala then it becomes impossible for you to fear anyone other than a law because you know his greatness and you know his power, and that his greatness and his power and the perfection of his greatness and his power is the only one that is worthy of fear.

00:13:11--> 00:13:13

And you will not trust other than Allah

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

and you will not place your hope in anything other than Allah. And you will begin venerating Allah and recognizing the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala Ireland every situation. And this is why some of the stuff used to make dr to a loss of habitat. And that is to say alone in any form as it

00:13:33--> 00:13:37

were inherent any form as into an oak. You would say, oh, a lot.

00:13:38--> 00:13:41

If you punish me, I will remain hopeful in you.

00:13:42--> 00:14:24

And if you withhold from me, then I will remain praying to you, being Why does he do this? Because he understands the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala who else is worthy of our hope other than Allah azza wa jal, who else is worthy of your why other than Allah subhana wa Tada. And you can only see this and recognize this, when you recognize and you venerate Allah subhanho wa Taala and realize that he is of him. And when you do this, then the veneration of everything other than Allah taken away from your heart, look at one of the greatest scholars in the history of Islam. And that is in the center, one of the great scholars of Egypt. One day, he confronted the ruler of his time, in a

00:14:24--> 00:14:45

public parade in front of all of the people. He stood up in front of him and he said to him on a tube, he said, Oh, are you speaking to him like he is a common man, without referring to him with any title? He said, Tim, are you He said, Are you the one who was who was ruling Egypt

00:14:46--> 00:14:52

and you have allowed the sale of alcohol and all types of hot item inside this country.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

And he stood in front of him and he spoke like this in front of all of the people. And the man said to him, by the way,

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

ICD, an MSI to that.

00:15:03--> 00:15:27

In America mean, to me, he said, I didn't do any of this. Rather, this was in the time of my father, my father allowed these things I didn't allow them. And so is the knob. Does Sam continue to speak to him harshly in front of all of the people? And he said to him, and Mina Lavina, all along while I'm in full court and in no agenda,

00:15:28--> 00:15:29

meeting with

00:15:30--> 00:15:45

him, he said, Are you amongst those people whom Allah subhanaw taala refers to in the Quran, that when they are told to do good, they say, we found our forefathers on the path, and we are on the path of our forefathers and we are holding on to their path.

00:15:46--> 00:16:31

And so then, the ruler didn't know what to say. And he agreed in that moment, to shut down those places of harem in his country. And a man a student came up to his knob, the cinema, he said, How did you find it in your heart, to stand up in front of this ruler in front of all the people and to speak to him so harshly in front of all the people when you know that he can easily imprison you, and you know that he can easily harm you and torture you? And he said to him, hello to our limited law, he called me he said, I felt the greatness of a law in my heart. And so when I looked upon the men for ATIA, who can fit he said, I saw him like a small kitten. I recognize the greatness of this

00:16:31--> 00:17:09

of this ruler, and all of his power was as weak and as feeble as a small kitchen. Why is that of two arguments in life he called me he said, because I recognized and venerated the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala in my heart, you will lose the fear of the people when you recognize the greatness of Allah subhana wa tada when you recognize that Allah subhana wa tada truly is a team and the more you learn about Allah azzawajal and the more you gain knowledge about Allah subhanho wa Taala The more that you are able to recognize that Allah subhanho wa Taala as a team, and this is why Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, in the mail shalom may not be bad law, that only those who have

00:17:09--> 00:17:48

knowledge of the law are truly able to fear into venerate Allah subhanahu wa eila and this is why no Holly has sent and spoke to his people when he saw them falling into worshipping other than a law falling into all types of hold on he said Malecon Lateran and Allahu Akbar hora. What is the matter with you that you do not recognize the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala your abundant ability to venerate Allah subhanho wa Taala is attached to how much knowledge you have of Allah subhanho wa Taala and how do we understand in our lives that Allah is allowed him? How do we connect in our lives with a loss of Handel's Allah being an Athenian recognize the greatness of a loss of Hannah

00:17:48--> 00:18:27

with Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells you in two verses both of them and sort of tell Hodge he said that he can want to use them Sha in a law for enam in taqwa lube, he said, Whoever venerates the symbols of the loss of Hannah with Dinah, than indeed this is from the taqwa of our hearts. And then Allah says in another verse in the same chapter than a Colombian, you will have them hold on to law for a woman for a while, you will never want to be that whoever venerates the sanctity of the rights of Allah, the things that are wrong, that Allah has asked him not to go into that indeed, this is better for them with their Lord. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has tied together our ability to

00:18:27--> 00:18:54

recognize the greatness of the law with our ability to one worship Allah subhanho wa Taala, to venerate the symbols of Allah Subhana, WA Tada. And also to venerate the things, the sanctity of the rights of a law, meaning staying away from everything that is wrong. And look at the live in our model, rock metal lights out on the last one, when he was going through the desert, and he came by a man who was hurting some sheep. And he said to him, he said, Are you sure?

00:18:55--> 00:19:11

He said, which of your sheep would be good to slaughter? So the shepherd said to him on arare, nice to have one out of bad. He said, its master is not here. The one who owns it is not here. I'm just the shepherd taking care of it. But the one who owns it is not here. So I cannot sell you any of these. So I'm delighted we're

00:19:12--> 00:19:51

playing a little bit with him. He said, and if we were to eat it, and slaughter it and eat it's so how would your master know about it? If we were to slaughter it, and cook it and eat it? How would your master know anything about it? And so the man said to him, and turned his head towards the heavens, and he said to him in a law, so where is a law? It's my master cannot see it and where is a law? And I'm delighted when a homeowner began to cry, and he began to say over and over for a new law for a new law for a new law. Where is the law? Where is the law? Ask yourself brothers and sisters, where is a lot in your life? Where is the loss of Hannah tiarella in the greatness of a lot

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

in your life? Where is the greatness of a lot in all of the decisions that you make in your life? Are you willing to sacrifice your desires out of your life?

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

Have for loss of high notes are that in your recognition of the greatness of Allah? Are you willing to delete the things that are in your life sign your computers on your phones that might give you pleasure but you know distract you away from Allah subhana wa Island take you into how long? Are you willing to give up and sacrifice all of the pleasures that tear you away from a law? I would have your recognition of the greatness of a loss of Hannah with either say in a law, where is a law? Indeed? Where is the law in each of your hearts? Where is a law in all of your lives? Where is the loss of high? No, it's either in the decisions that you make. Where is the last panel? It's either

00:20:38--> 00:21:06

when you decide to be friends with these people or not be friends with these people? Where's the loss of hi Natasha when you decide to come to the masjid or not go to the masjid? Where is the loss of Hanoi? It's Island all the decisions that you make, then economy you azim Shah it'll law for enamelled soql kurobe. Whoever venerates the great the symbols of a law than indeed this is from the consciousness and the taqwa of our hearts, Falco. lokali has stopped for a while you will come through in the Hall of Fame

00:21:20--> 00:21:26

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. What Allah Allah He was a happy woman who Allah.

00:21:30--> 00:21:32

Allah subhanaw taala says, as we mentioned,

00:21:34--> 00:22:08

the economy rather than shy Illa, finance and so called Kuru, we'll call it a Lee Kuan Yew, to LA for who you will not want to be that whoever venerates the symbols of a law This is from the taqwa of their hearts, and whoever venerates the sanctity of the rights of a law, then indeed this is better for them with their Lord. Some of the people in our society, they only follow what is halal. When you convince them that there is a wisdom behind it to being hunted, or the abstain from what is haram only when you convince them that there is a wisdom behind it being wrong.

00:22:09--> 00:22:55

So if they if you were to tell them to abandon the drinking of alcohol, for example, they would say we're only going to abandon it when you convince me that there is a wisdom behind me abandoning it. And the question that we should have is, are these people truly venerating allow him? Are they truly following Allah subhanho wa Taala are all the are the only following a lot in relation to how much they can understand and rationalize what is highlighted and what is how long are they venerating their own ability to determine what is wise, or are the venerating The one who is allowing him himself? are they following the orders of the one who is ordering them? Or are they only following

00:22:55--> 00:23:37

that which they think they can understand the true follower of of him, as Allah subhanaw taala mentions and shows us in the Quran are those who said, we'll call Lucena alpha who for Ana carabiner what you like and we'll see you those who say we hear and we obey. And our forgiveness is for we ask our forgiveness from our Lord and to Him we will return. This is the the attitude of those who recognize truly the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala that the person follows the orders of habitat and haraam not on any condition, except the condition that they are convinced that it came and the authentic hadith or it came in the Quran, so long as they know that this came from Allah and

00:23:37--> 00:24:16

His Messenger, then they follow it because they recognize the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is why the scholars say lattanzio de la silla and maaseiah. Well, I can, Allah Almighty, Allah limits monazite they said, Do not look to the smallness of the sin that you commit, but rather look to the greatness of the one whom you are sinning against. And this is the attitude of the companions of the Prophet some along why'd you send them the moments that are law as dogen revealed the verses making the drinking of alcohol and the acts of gambling haraam? The streets began to run with alcohol that they were breaking and jumping out of their homes. Why on Who said that? Now what

00:24:16--> 00:24:56

I thought I would throw in a cut up in a way he can we'll see if they heard and they obeyed, and they sought the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so we need to be people who are those who are following Allah subhanho wa Taala and recognizing the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala the problem that we have is that we commit so many different sins, and many of the sins that we do so panela we would do everything to hide these sins from the people that we know, there are those of us who would pay literally millions of dollars, all of our money, we would rather be homeless and destitute than to see our parents know some of the harm that we've done in our lives, that our

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

parents would see the harm that we have done in our lives. Does

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

Allow him doesn't Allah subhana wa tada deserve more of our reverence? Doesn't he deserve more of our respect? Doesn't he deserve more of our devotion and more of our love? Is the phone I mean enough when I suffer when I'm in a law well who I'm at home, they conceal from the people but they do not conceal from Allah and Indeed Allah is with them in the law woman, let alone Allenby Yeah, you and Nadine am and also Laura Lee.
