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

One of the great scholars of our religion one of the great scholars of the set of manda Cuban dinar Rama, Allah Tala was once walking by a graveyard.

00:00:14--> 00:00:37

And as he walked by the graveyard, he remarks and he said, Massa keen to do 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.

00:00:39--> 00:00:45

So those were with him they asked him called woman out here movie what is the best of this world?

00:00:47--> 00:00:57

So he said to the man artifacts in LA he Azerbaijan had battle. He said it is knowing Allah subhanaw taala and having love for Allah azza wa jal.

00:00:58--> 00:01:01

This is the greatest of the dunya

00:01:02--> 00:01:04

How difficult is life?

00:01:05--> 00:01:07

When a person does not know Allah subhanaw taala?

00:01:08--> 00:01:22

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 their responsibility is in this world?

00:01:23--> 00:01:36

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.

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

So what he said is imminently true

00:01:41--> 00:01:50

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.

00:01:53--> 00:01:58

And those who know Allah azza wa jal, they've tasted the best of what there is in this world.

00:01:59--> 00:02:31

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,

00:02:32--> 00:03:12

your fear home Oduro home, why is he the human family in no foreign Shaco 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 afforded forgiving, and shockula the one who is appreciative. Allah subhanaw taala gives himself these names, a shack here, and attributes and innate attributes of being appreciative. And a Shaco subhanho wa taala, either the one who by His will and His generosity, he always increases

00:03:13--> 00:04:02

he increases for the one who gives him Schuco literally is to increase something. Allah subhanaw taala is a *hole 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 shackle, the horse, the camel, what did they mean by that, they meant you would 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 they gave you a lot of energy. So they would say this animal is shackled. They would also say out of the shuffled

00:04:02--> 00:04:36

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, where you gave us 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

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

you gain from 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 through this name of being a Shaco. The key is you have to give him some

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

One thing, 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.

00:05:40--> 00:05:48

Not because of the smallness of the deed, but because of the greatness of the one who appreciates the good that we do.

00:05:50--> 00:06:31

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 Celica, 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 throw it in the garbage, you forget that you did it. Allah subhana wa Tada did not forget. I shuffled it does not forget them. I shuffle rewards them, and increases it's good.

00:06:32--> 00:06:49

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 you know this statement of our Prophet sallallahu

00:06:51--> 00:07:02

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.

00:07:03--> 00:07:24

Yet Allah subhanaw taala if someone gave even that small amounts in southern Africa, with sincerity, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 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 it is a shocker.

00:07:26--> 00:08:03

And he will give you when you give to Allah azza wa jal the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us they are the one that had the comb mineral in our fish. 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.

00:08:04--> 00:08:18

He's a nurturer. Never be Lilith. Why? Because you are dealing with a Sharkwater Subhana wa Tada. You're dealing with the ones subhanaw taala can take that good deed and give you multiples and reward in return.

00:08:19--> 00:08:22

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Once he said

00:08:24--> 00:08:30

manfaat Allah saw Iman Kana icon, the Rakata human and now whoever feed someone who is fasting,

00:08:31--> 00:08:35

it may be what frees their neck from the hellfire.

00:08:37--> 00:08:55

Some of the companions that came to the prophets, Allah where it was sent in the city, 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. They said, We're poor, we don't have anything.

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

So we don't get the reward.

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

The Prophet sallallahu either you send them 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 is fasting, you will get the same reward.

00:09:16--> 00:09:38

Because it's not enough to deed it's another one. Subhana Horta, 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.

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

And then he said, a pool Alif Lam him how to further can elephant how to follow up on heartful memory and the Prophet sallallahu sallam said I'm not saying and if learning is a harder is a letter is a word. Is it? No I'm saying Elif is a lecture that you will be rewarded one reward multiplied by 10 and lamb is a lecture you will be rewarded one reward multiplied

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

by 10 and mean is the letter one reward multiplied by 10. All of this reward I remember sometimes when I'm younger, and our teachers would 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? But 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 subhanaw taala 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 subhanaw taala to tell you present something with sincerity to Allah

00:10:43--> 00:10:47

azza wa jal. We know the hadith of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

that a man was in the deserts

00:10:51--> 00:11:11

and he was thirsty. And he finally comes across a well, and he gets himself some water and he punches his thirst. And then he looks 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.

00:11:13--> 00:11:26

And he fills his slipper with water and he comes out and he gives it to the dark. And the Prophet sallallahu where it will send them says, For Shaka Allahu Allah who, for woofie Radha who fed hullavington Silva for an ova.

00:11:27--> 00:11:56

Allah subhanaw taala appreciated. Fisher for Allah Allah, Allah appreciated what he did, and forgave his sins and entered him into Jana. Just forgiving water to a dog. Why? Because of his sincerity, and because he is dealing with a lord Subhana wa Tada who appreciates the good that we put forward. We know that hadith of our Prophet Sall Allahu Allah usnm All of these Hadith are telling you what, don't give up on the good deeds.

00:11:57--> 00:12:43

Even more than this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us this world is for four people. He said 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 fauna and Allah He Seiwa they are equal in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala the generosity of your Lord subhanho wa Taala is just having the sincere, truly sincere intention to do something good. Even if you are not

00:12:43--> 00:13:03

capable of doing that good deed, Allah will reward you as this 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.

00:13:05--> 00:13:50

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 Why is he the human family 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 wire as either home and holiday. 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 news. This is Alfie HyperSnap whoever commits a good deed

00:13:50--> 00:14:29

we will increase for them what is good in the whole affair on shellcode He is Forgiving and he is appreciative. Allah says Allah, Masha, when when are they known as eat, they will have an paradise whatever they desire, whatever they want, that's it's no wonder they never eat 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. Little Athena and husana was Jada. Allah says to those who do good, they will have good was the idea and an increase in more, even more they will have

00:14:30--> 00:14:59

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 room it's called as a rotten. Allah does not cause injustice, even an Adam's wait. When Tebow has an attorney will do it for her. And if it is a good deed, he will increase and multiply it. If you do the smallest of wrongs Allah will not punish

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

issue 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, big day tomorrow, whoever gives sadaqa that is equal to a date, just one date of soda. Milk has been fired from pure wealth, health and 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

00:15:48--> 00:16:10

or 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 sadaqa sincerely, from pure Halal 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.

00:16:11--> 00:16:12

Yusuf Ali Hassan,

00:16:13--> 00:16:29

you 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.

00:16:30--> 00:16:30


00:16:31--> 00:16:34

alarm goes and he fights in battle.

00:16:36--> 00:17:05

And so both of his arms are cut off and he is killed. What does our Prophet say? He says Aurora Hill and Phil Jana Adela hula hoop is Aurora 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 rueful Jana. Yeah, Kuruman somebody here we are shareable man. And

00:17:06--> 00:17:48

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 more eyes are the Allahu Akbar 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

00:17:48--> 00:17:56

followed him until he died. What did the Prophet SAW Allah where it was and I'm saying, Oh, I said Gardena, Allah, feminine mother acre, Yamuna Jeunesse

00:17:57--> 00:18:40

Allah and he said, 70,000 of the angels came down to carry the funeral procession of Saudi Radi 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 sea at all. We see the story of on the center of the Allah and it 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 Mecca

00:18:40--> 00:19:24

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 smell live upon her. But the Allahu Akbar at this time is not Muslim. He comes and he sees a woman with a child walking by themselves on the path to Medina. He said where are you going to go to Medina? Is it by yourself walking? She said yes.

00:19:25--> 00:19:29

So he said no, he was not Muslim, but he had chivalry.

00:19:31--> 00:19:52

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 camel he left and she remarked she said I know Allah will appreciate what he did.

00:19:55--> 00:19:58

And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam conquered Mecca

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

and he

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

accepted Islam, the Prophet sallallahu annual send them the people of Mecca people like Earth man and 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 sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said take this, these are the keys of the Cava. Take them.

00:20:21--> 00:20:57

Lyons, Darrell Hammond, Camilla Bonner. No one will take this from you, except that they are a tyrant. And he gave it to her Snapple the Allah who won the keys of the caravan. And until today, the offspring of Earth man even have the keys to the camera. 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 pono Cody had our software they will throw in order for OSHA.

00:21:08--> 00:21:13

Similar from the Los Altos cinema Rasulillah he was it he was the woman water

00:21:14--> 00:21:59

throughout the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala. When he speaks about his attributes of being a shekel, he pairs it with two other attributes. Well, can Allah who is Shaq urine Alima, Allah is appreciative and he is Aileen that he is knowledgeable. Why does Allah pare 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 know they don't understand how you did them a good

00:21:59--> 00:22:44

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 Ramana della fall on Shaka, 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

00:22:44--> 00:23:25

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 Makoto bentonia The first Allahu anhu, competitive, incredible 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

00:23:25--> 00:24:10

second is to worship Allah often, if you truly believe and the depths of your hearts, 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 our Prophet sallallahu wasallam said as a farmer to Sarah will philia honeycomb. Firstly that's Infineon. If you see the Day of Judgment happening and in your hand there is a seed that let them plant that seed. Why because you know Allah is appreciative. You know that Allah will reward you for that good deed. But to have that ability, you do the good deeds, and you

00:24:10--> 00:24:47

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 shareholder, 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, in the Lahoma data because it was so non and Debbie I will Adina Amazon do it

00:24:47--> 00:24:48
