I was hoping I mean, I'm about. So yesterday's recitation included surah Ar Rahman Rahim and tonight inshallah we'll be reciting surah, Al hedger and surah. Now these four students together share a common theme. And that common theme is to be grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. For all of his favors through Through our Lord is named after the time the enlightening the unless you have a handle that tells us in the surah, that all of creation praises Allah in ways that we don't understand. And even the lightning and the Dinos are a type of praise of Allah subhanho wa Taala according the way the disguise that the heavens praise and worship are handled, in a way that we

00:00:41--> 00:01:21

don't understand. And so we have this theme that all of creation is grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala will we be grateful. And then in the next to restore Abraham, again, the message is repeated about the importance of gratitude, that if you are grateful, I will give you more. And then in Surah, Al headjam, the emphasis here even a special bounty of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So what you see in these two sutras that we recite tonight, is that the first Surah Surah hedger focuses on a love gift to us in terms of the Quran, and in terms of Islam, and the importance of being grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for gifting us with Islam and for gifting us with the Quran. And then the

00:01:21--> 00:02:02

second Surah we will recite tonight surah Allah has the chapter of the beat, this surah lists for us many of the beautiful things Allah has created. So we can appreciate the beauty of the creation around us. And so when you recite these two students together, you should get a sense of gratitude, Allah subhanho wa Taala for the physical and the spiritual, for the world and for the deen. So you get a grant a sense of gratitude for both. And so one of the, one of the beautiful verses throughout Asia and lots of data tells us that He has given us the Quran and the seven often recited verses referring to to robatayaki. So here I want to go handle is reminding us that probably his greatest

00:02:02--> 00:02:41

gift to us is the Quran itself, that the Quran guides us It gives us purpose, he says meaning it gives us a conviction in his religion, it is a gift to Allah subhana wa Taala will we not be grateful for that gift, and then in the next to the cultural heritage lists favor upon favor upon favor, that he created for us so many different things he created for all of these animals, and this world, everything in it. And an industry Allah subhanaw taala says that if you have to count the vagaries of Allah, you will never be able to do so. If you have to try counting all the Allah favors upon you, you will never be able to do so. And so the primary lesson that we take for today's

00:02:41--> 00:03:20

recitation is the importance of being grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And linking that to our spirituality. One final point for today is that many times, you know we think of worshipping Allah is just you know, as a as a as on one level, but in reality, there are different levels of Imam. So someone who's like just starting to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala, they may be doing it out of culture may be doing it out of obeying the appearance, or they may be doing it out of fear of the hellfire. All of these are good beginning level steps to get a person to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. But as we increase in demand, our reason for worshiping Allah should evolve as well. They

00:03:20--> 00:04:02

should move from fear, towards hope and from hope towards love. And the highest level of worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala is to worship Allah on to gratitude. Why is the highest level because this was the level of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam that I showed you and the rates that she saw the profit loss I'm paying at night long prayers late at night. And so she asked him, Why do you pray so much? Well, Allah has already forgiven you all your sins, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied, should I not be a grateful servant? Should I not be a critical servant? And so from here we see the I was looking at worship as something you do to Allah forgiveness, and

00:04:02--> 00:04:29

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught at a higher level of worship, that even if Allah already forgiven you, and even if there is no fear of going to the Hellfire, we still worship on love. Why? Because we are grateful for all these members upon us. So we should work to build our level of demand to a level where we worship Allah out of gratitude, because this is the level of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. These are role models and that is the level we should aspire towards. So for Hannah Robin, is that the fool or Salah,
