The province of Allahu Allah, you send him out a group of companions who were together they were traveling or they were living a little bit far away from his Masjid. So he appointed an Imam amongst them someone to lead the prayers. And so this person when he would lead the prayers, in every prayer, he would recite a sutra, there was a surah, he would recite in every prayer. So he began he will types within Fatiha, and then he would recite whatever verses from the Quran then he would recite this surah every single time every record over and over and over again, imagine every prayer who do this. And so the people this habit, were praying behind him, they felt like this was strange.
They said, you know, we prayed behind the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he didn't recite the suta all the time, why is this man doing that? So they went to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and they complained about about him. What sort of was he reciting all the time? What are these verses he keeps reciting over and over again? It is these verses. One who Allahu
Allah who son added lamb Jani Dawa mu one Amir Kula, who Khufu one hider
the companions went to the Prophet solo and he said, complaining about this, they said, messenger of Allah, he's reciting cuando, Allahu Ahad, at the end of every Raka we pray behind you, you don't do this. Why is he praying like this? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his judgment in his wisdom, he doesn't take judgment, rashly, rather he asked them Have any of you asked this man why he does this. So they said no oh messenger of Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Go and ask him. So they went and they asked the man, the prophet is asking, why are you reciting? polhill? Allahu I had in every rakah that you pray. So the man said, the toss of a rock man. What? A
boy Accra. He said, because it describes the Most Merciful, Allah azza wa jal, and I love reciting it. So they came back to the Prophet sallallahu. And he said, and they said, O Messenger of Allah, this was his answer. This is what he said when when we asked him, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, go back and tell him that Allah loves him, because of his love for it, meaning Allah loves him because of his love for this surah Subhana Allah, how many of us have such a deep personal connection with some of the verses of Allah Subhana Allah and the way that this man had a deep personal connection to Sudan, a loss to hola hola who had that he really had a love for it. And
because of his love for those verses, Allah subhanaw taala tells him through our Prophet sallallahu Sallam that he loves him, because he loves these verses, but this hobby loved this surah for what reason? Be, he says because it describes a loss of Hannah to Allah because it describes our Lord, some of the people from Qureshi had come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they said to him, give us the lineage of your Lord. Because for for kurush, the gods that they worshiped from minette and Hobart in Arizona, all these different gods, they were either people that they turned into idols, and so these people came from a tribe they have a lineage or you know, there were myths
and fables that they made up so they said, What is you know the story of your Lord what's the lineage of your Lord? You know, who is he related to what tribe is he from? And the profits a little low isn't didn't answer Allah sent down this surah Hola. Hola who ahead? And in this surah Allah is responding to them. Well, who Allahu Ahad say he is, he is one. Allah subhanaw taala is not like anything they're describing. He's not like the stones that they were worshipping and revering. He's not like the trees that they would revere and venerate. He's not you know, a man who they turned into a god or into an idol. No, Allah is one he is different from all of these things. He soprano
data is unique, completely Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah is a summit Allah who summit a summit is the master, the one whom everyone is in need of, and he fulfills the needs of everyone. That's the that's the meaning of a summit. Allah is a summit we are all in need of him. He's not like these idols. He's not like these stones that they are worshiping that that you know, cannot benefit anyone rather a lot. So again, we are in need of him and he is the one who fulfills the needs of all the creation takes care of our needs. So kinda what Tyler let me only do what I'm you that He neither has offspring, nor is he born, he's not in need of having children nor is he in need of coming into
existence. He is the first in the last Subhana Allah He doesn't need to be born and he doesn't need to have offspring. He has to perfect for anything like that. Well, I'm ecola who had and there is nothing similar to him. Allah subhanaw taala is completely unique. And this is you know, this beautiful surah shows us and turns us towards the oneness of Allah azza wa jal, the uniqueness of our Lord subhanho wa Taala purifies our worship and allows us to focus on the one the only one that matters Allah subhanho wa Taala
