have the lowest lows of cinema in
America and sell it. We'll continue with our discussion and
I believe we're on this.
We finished most of it just wanted to make some final comments about
Rahim. And he spoke last time about the different interpretations of those two words and the different shades of meaning. It seems to shell off we put together all of the different meanings or interpretations, I think we can come up with one which is very consistent. And also which relates to the concepts, although concepts in this area related to our laws, and our laws, will we distinguish between his konia errata and his suraiya era that enables things that he wills for the world to exist based on the laws that he has set down for this world and those things that he wills with respect to his theory of those things that he wants from us for example. So he may allow for
example, someone to kill somebody else, he may allow that to physically happen, but this is not what he is requesting from us necessarily from Sharia point of view. So with respect to
I think you can think of more related more to the errata related to Konya. In other words, this is Allah subhanho wa Taala, the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that is related to his essence, but the pattern of man gives the idea that it is filled and overflowing. So from that session, Alyssa handwerk, Allah has created the many aspects of Rama he gives to those people, who are deserving of Rama it gives to those who are not deserving of Rama. And this is the general concept and as we said,
touches upon those things which only Allah subhanaw taala can give people like giving life and so forth. These are exclusively for Ramadan, and this is a name that can only be given to Allah subhana wa Tada.
But in response to the action so beyond that,
we shall listen to what God has decreed all the creation. Beyond that, Allah subhana wa tada also has a special dogma which goes with his name,
which is in response to the believers to their belief in him to their actions. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala bestows a special Rama from his name
upon those people who believe in Him and who had property. So this
is not from his general Rama, the tears ordained for the equation as a whole premise is based on His justice, his wisdom, and his love for the believers.
Now, the concept of is something that we can discuss in more detail. And I will leave it for when we discuss
which comes after.
But to re emphasize the point, for example, that your site's sort of too hot, you have 17 times in a day, when you perform the daily follow up. And of course, if you perform, you're welcome. And so what do you recycle more than that?
So that means you repeat these words are Rahmani Raheem, not 17 times a day, but at least three, four times a day.
So this shows us again the emphasis that I'll listen to what God is giving on the fact that he is a rough man, he is filled with drama, and he is giving a mercy and drama to all of mankind and all of the creation actually, and especially to the believers.
And as I said, all these things from this fact alone, you can understand that the bottom is a very important concept. And inshallah if we have time later, we'll discuss it when we discuss.
I would just like to mention a couple more points, when we begin with this statement.
And when you think about the order of the words that are listening to what God has taught us, this means that we begin with a law and then we go to our man, and then we go to
this is what our lesson haddaway God has taught us. Now in general, when you say Bismillah, as we spoke about, you are invoking the name of Allah subhana wa Tada. That includes and encompasses all of the names and attributes, including.
So when you say Bismillah, just the first spark actually you are already mentioning, Alyssa Hannah with data with all of his names and industry, the traditional reason, one of the spiritual aspects of the name of Allah and as I say, Bismillah
Here means both banaskantha we are seeking Allah subhanho wa Taala is helping we are seeking out his blessings. So when we start in the act, so we start by mentioning his name which encompasses all of his attributes, including his attributes, His Lordship, his attributes of power, and so forth.
We are seeking His blessings we are seeking his help. The first name after that, that we invoke is
we will commerce in hand with Allah by His mercy.
In general, when you make the name that you invoke, of Allah subhanho wa Taala is usually related to that thing that you're going to ask for.
For now, we're talking about a general statement to start all actions, right. So we can say every action in general, we should start with this statement. So first, we invoke Alyssa Hana with Dallas, General Rama, you're asking fun to listen, I know without a gentle Rama. And then after that, definitely say, mine, then we're asking Allah subhanaw taala for that specific and special Rama that he gives to the believers.
So this is what we're invoking. When we say, with the help of Allah and only Allah and seeking the blessings of Allah, only Allah, I do this act, and we're invoking Allah, and we're walking him over and revoking his him or him
because we know that Allah Subhana Allah bestows special blessings upon those people who obey Him who believe in him and so forth, especially right
now, it's like you're invoking Allah subhana wa Taala. by different rights, you have the right you are part of his creation, his Allah is Allah, Allah, if you want to say, for creation, so you're invoking your rights. This is your mabuti you're invoking your rights as a general and you're invoking your rights from Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is giving you as being a belief. But then at the same time, this means you have to live up to that you have to try to live up to that, especially that last one. You are asking for a special run up from Allah subhanho wa Taala based on the name of Rahim and so therefore, you have to try also at the same time to live up to that to get the lesson.
Hello, Todd has special needs.
And if you think about these names, when you begin with Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim as we spoke about already, some of the effects of Bismillahirrahmanirrahim should have on you. But I want to just emphasize these two names.
Just the fact that Allah is a man and Rahim this should gender a feeling in the hearts of the believer, and a feeling of love. A feeling of closeness to Allah subhana wa tada that she wants to become closer to Allah subhana wa tada because I love
him. And he is the one who taught us to say these words. So just when you invoke these words, just by thinking about these words, Allah subhanho wa Taala should become more beloved to
Allah subhanho wa Taala becomes more beloved to what should be the results upon the act now that you are studying with this new
kind of the quality and the nature and maybe the act itself should change completely. If you're beginning for example, to make Moodle, he said this to him. You recognize Allah's mercy, this should be closer to Allah subhanaw taala This should make your action more sincere for the sake of Allah. And with that, why should you want to turn to anyone else? Why should you be concerned about anyone else? Why should you even seek to please, or do any action for anyone else? When you have a lesson handler to Allah, Who is Allah, who's a rough man who's
and as I said, if you really ponder over these names, Allah subhanho wa Taala and what this expression means that Alyssa handleless out has given us at the beginning of his book, and has called us to say in the being of so many actions of response from it immediately should be
at hamdulillah you're planning for Liesl hamdulillah. And when you think about Allah, Allah is the name of Allah self, no Rahman Al Rahim, you can come to the conclusion of saying and humbly which is of course the next time, the next time that Allah subhana wa tada brings into surah are having the delay of the god I mean,
one of the things about understanding the Quran
and trying to get as much benefit from the Quran and also obviously the playing the foreign property
is to understand the concepts of the Quran in the proper way.
You know, everyone is influenced by the culture. Everyone is influenced by society. And sometimes even the same word could have a different meaning in one culture in one society, than it has in a different culture.
terms of the society. And even among the same people like the same people speak Arabic for example, for the same people who speak English, the connotation of a word can change over time.
So we want to understand what do these words mean according to the language, that Allah subhana wa tada has revealed within, and according to his original and correct and pure.
So the first concept, and this is hamdu, lillahi, Rabbil alameen, there's a number of things that we need to understand properly. One is the
next one is Allah but we've already discussed a lot. And another one is also
and we'll start with
is a very important concept in Islam.
And in fact, that is mentioned in different manners in different ways in the Quran in 68, places.
And a closely related concept of sugar as mentioned 75 times,
and this expression Alhamdulillah destroys the expression that we're dealing with here.
It is found 23 times in the Quran.
And on one occasion, only one other occasion, Allah subhanho wa Taala says he may have instead of saying, Allah, Allah in one place, no, Brian says below.
And the scholars have discussed what's the difference in the wordings and why in this one place. At the end of the sort of get the why in this one place, as Allah sake in this way, and everywhere else, he says it's 100.
And that kind of discussion, we won't have time to get into,
because we have enough of other things. Another aspect also that discloses notice is that when that hunt begins and Saurus,
and it begins five different sources, the complete versus always different, for example, in fact, we haven't had any
sort of recap we have.
So always in the beginning of the sources, what comes after is different every time. But when the time comes at the end of a surah, it is always at hamdulillah horrible as always.
And this is another point that Allah has discussed. What is the difference between these two? And why is it always at the end of the sort of layer of anatomy, but what we want to concentrate today, inshallah is what is the root meaning of
what concepts are involved when you say,
there are actually five words in the Arabic language, which are very close in meaning. There are no pure synonyms in the Arabic language. Each word has some slightly different connotation to it. And there's a number of books written in Arabic, which talks about the differences in these words, some of them begin, for example, the title of total familia, and the differences in the meaning of similar words. So there are five words which are closely related tools.
Before I put them on the board, just let me ask quickly, what's the good translation for the word and have one word?
Okay, I'll have them be present Mashallah.
So the five words would seem to be very close, but actually are not that
we have the first one.
And we have a shocker. And as a verb, Sakura, who who Sakura
and then we have a mud
and we have a sinner, and then we have a must.
So these are five words, if you ask the common Arab example, he might tell you, these are very close to me, I was at sugar center. And
we will not have time actually to discuss the last time that we finished at hand, I'll be very happy.
Going back to the point that I made this one of the important things is to try to study and recognize the differences between the words when we say these words from the Quran,
it's very important for us to realize the differences between them, and actually a poverty. To go to the top of this stuff here. He says that hump and a sugar mean the same thing at hand and the sugar. According to poverty mean the same thing
he presented, his argument is not very strong, and most of the scholars disagree with it.
Now if we go to contemporary dictionary, English Arabic dictionary just to make this easier on me,
and we look up these words, they'll give us a basic meaning. And we'll see from these basic meanings that actually they don't tell us much. So if we go for example, to Hans very Dictionary of modern India, which, first of all it's a dictionary of modern Arabic, so therefore, it's not too concerned.
Above the differences in some of the meanings and the rules and so forth. But if you look up these verbs and these verbal nouns and verbs books you'll find, for example, that the hunt and hamburger who means to praise command, lon extol,
to praise command, Lord extol.
If you look up
the third one here, and muda muda who says to praise command Lord explore
any difference knows he goes on then to eulogize and celebrate themselves, that's the only thing that he added.
And sugar, sugar, he says the means to thank to thank be thankful, grateful to praise law, that story.
So when you stick with a basic definition, like these basic definitions, which unfortunately, when read the Quran, and I'm going to bring a close example of this later, when we're done discussing this verse, sometimes when we read the Quran, and we just like was up on translation, it'll just give us one word. And we'll say that we may be understood to the word, even Arabic speaking, they might only know that basic meaning of what happened to them, it means this phrase. But if you look into the books of Arabic language, and when you look in the books of the seer in particular, or books of Africa, where the scholars have discussed the differences between these words, you'll find
that there is a big difference between these words. And so I have come up with about 15 or 16 points about what does the word mean? And what does it include?
I might skip one or two, about sugar, I have about 13 points and about a month, I only have two. So that's the best one, I guess. We'll discuss that. And in the meantime, we'll maybe discuss some differences between it and a speaker, and
so on, how do we say for example, that it means praise, or the first dictionary definition was praised? So now the first question is when you say that the word means praise? What is the object of the praise?
And what are you praising? So for example, you would use metal. And there's one of the differences between them, is what you're praising me the thing that you're praising will be different between men and
so for example,
you would use 100 or form of verbal
in the case of the attributes that the object has.
So in other words, if something has excellent attributes, beautiful attributes, and of course, you never use the same word in the definition, praiseworthy attributes, then you would praise them. So for example, in the Arabic language you could say to Allah,
I praise him for his bravery. He will not say I thank him for his bravery.
He will not say succumbs to security.
So one of the aspects of which distinguishes it from sugar is that you praise someone for his attributes.
So someone is excellent zoning something you would give Him praise.
So obviously, here we're talking about the expression and hamdulillah. So when we say 100 illa part of this and we're talking about all of the attributes of a lesson how to work out on the profession of Allah subhana wa, tada is behind why we're saying.
So just Allah attributes This in itself, allows purpose attributes in itself should make us make him for him. But he did not just praise someone for his attributes. But you also praise someone for his actions, for the good that he has done to others, as well as the good he has done to you.
The good that he has done to others, as well as the good that he's done for you. So for example, this man with goddesses,
who fall in love you know, ultimo what hamdu, lillahi Rabbil alameen, that Allah subhana wa Tada, has cut off the last remnants of the wrongdoers. Praise be to Allah and the lay of the land. So this is not actually directly touching me.
It is something that I'll listen how to work out. And then when I listen, I know what data for example makes this creation in the certain Wait a minute, something is not touching me directly, but Ally's deserving of him for that. So the action that Alyssa what God has done for us is also a reason for him to be praised for him to receive.
This is again a difference between soccer because soccer you only do it for a demo blessing that comes to you
Someone give somebody else $100 I don't say Oh thank you. I don't make sure
but I can make come from, if you did a good thing by giving someone $100 then this would be a case where
one particular case and that would be, so we praise Allah subhana wa tada for the good that he has done to others for all of the bounties that he's given for anyone who is deserving of him, plus all of the bounties that he's given to ourselves.
So in this next aspect, it also was common with if Allah subhana wa tada does good to you. Then he is deserving of
ricotta does good to you is deserving of
can we find for example,
Allah subhana wa tada says, and I will follow from the delay Larry had an early
career Lola and had an alarm. They say that Praise be to Allah, Allah to he has guided us. And if we're not for him, If Allah not get it us, we will not have been among the game.
So when we praise in general, he's a just from the first three points of a foot. When we praise in general we either praise someone because of his excellence call to the praise.
Regardless of whether that excellence has any direct relevance to us.
All we also praise someone because he is our benefactor, he is the one who gives us bounces, he's the one who gives us blessings. So therefore we praise Him we give a hug because of that.
And so all these three relates to Allah subhanho wa Taala and are captured in this word
and is obviously related to Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen.
Now, when we pay someone also we pay someone
for the actions that he is doing out of his own accord out of his own choice.
So for example, if you take a pearl
and you say this pearl is excellent, that is beautiful, the shape and everything is beautiful. Now the poll didn't do this on its own. Or if you look at someone who's very full and you praise His height, this is not
this is not
this is not because 100 is only for the actions or the behavior or the characteristics that the person for the beam has chosen for himself.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala for example, has all of the perfect qualities and aspects and these are the aspects that we can say he's chosen for himself, because on the one of the head he says that he is forbidden for himself and even Samia as long discussion about them, saying that this statement of Allah subhana wa tada where he said he is forbidden from doing or injustice to himself something which is excellent on the part of Alyssa Watada. That means that he could have committed long if you want.
But Allah subhana wa tada has two big goals.
He has also as we'll talk about when we talk about Rama, he has also decided that his Rama will overcome his anger.
So these are the things that I listen to handle with Allah has set for himself and so therefore, because of that he is deserving.
Now, this next point, is something we'll come back to later if you read the scores, they will tell you that the hum is only by the tongue, can you say 100
Okay, well they say a soccer is by the phone, by the heart by the song and also by the actions.
So, this is one thing where the scoring Sandham does not accept by the time they will come back to this, because even though it is what the majority of scholars said, it does not seem to be correct. And as I said, he said I will come back to that it is it is kind of an important thing.
And one thing that almost all the scholars stress is Declan Holmes actually is most simply by the tone, but that is by the tongue and by the heart
has to be by the tongue and by the heart. And what do you mean by that is that for him to be true? To be true kind of phrasing to be what Allah subhana wa tada is referring to in this verse in the Quran.
There are certain qualities in the heart that have to be met. And if these qualities are not present in the hearts, then this is not actually happening.
For us was in the old days in Arabian, Tanzania, they might still do nowadays. The poet's ma wants something from the king from the rural from the honey. So I make these nice words of praise for the halifa
These are just words, if you seem to get something, there's no love involved with it. So this is my dad, this is not.
So therefore, someone could give words, of
course, in English, we have to go
to someone who even hates, you might have some other books, you know, he might need something from him.
But this is not
has to be associated with love. So in other words, there's a feeling of gratitude that you have for dogs, because because of his qualities because of his actions, and that gratitude must be implemented by love in the heart. And if there's no love, it will not be.
And if there's no love in the heart, then you will not recognize all the qualities why you should make
if someone says 100,
and he does not have love Allah subhanho wa Taala. This means he doesn't even know what he meant by saying and hunting. Because he was saying something about all this data, that he is deserving of all the praise. So you're saying certain things about his attributes in his actions. So that is not accompanied with love. That means you do not even understand what the expression means.
And in addition to love also, must be accompanied by it all by being pleased.
Because again, thank you know what you were saying about 200. And it's the being that we're speaking about has these aspects, excellent, beautiful qualities, excellent, beautiful deeds. So by definition, if these things are so excellent, they should be pleasing to you. But they're not pleasing to you something is actually wrong. They're not pleasing to you. And at the same time, if they're not pleasing to you, then you're not really making.
They're not making hundreds in the complete sense.
There also has to be in the heart a feeling of humility, and submissiveness.
Because especially if we're talking about exactly the letter of the law, I mean, we're talking about describing Allah subhanho wa Taala, who has attributes of perfection.
So therefore, we have to have a sense of all a sense of humility, a sense of submissiveness, in front of Allison Hamilton.
As one scholar said, he said, if you have the means to describe moods, which means, in this case, a lovely phrase, one with the attributes of perfection, and you're describing him with love, and if it is without love, and all it is hypocrisy, and show, and simply lying in a blame worthy praise.
And if you are saying,
and it's not accompanied by these feelings, in the heart connection, it is hypocrisy. Because when you say, 100, you are saying something about the one that you're speaking about. And the thing that you're saying, requires that there be this feeling of law and law, and submissiveness and in fact, the intent behind it, when you say 111, you use the expression, the intent behind it has to be one have been introduced Jews reverence and veneration for the praise.
And also, the intent behind also has to be to express his greatness and perfection. When you say to them, even though you know that you cannot express Allah's greatness and profession completely tempts us to try to somehow express all this
greatness and perfection.
And this is why many scholars including me, will claim for example, he says that, how did he lead this expression Alhamdulillah. It says, however, it is a statement of fact. But its meaning actually is one is.
And this is one of the difference between love.
And if you have the will, or you have the desire to want to implement the results of what you're saying when you say 100. So Angela is a statement of fact. But what you mean by it is you want to act according to the statement.
What does it mean?
Because we're talking about the different aspects of it, and we'll get to another point about it. And the meaning of it is something that you're trying to apply in your life.
Also, one of the things that differentiates us from soccer, is that there hungers for good things, as well as things that may look like they're not that good.
And if Good things come to you, you may come from us.
If things that you feel are not that good, if evil flips you to some kind of hardship or child afflicted, you still may come forward
For this was a course of the signal processing, as I said, told us cannot
on the processor to see something that he did not like you say I'm the lead
handler under all circumstances.
Another How do you propose us? Human for the LA movement? In a Sabo heroine? hamidah bo mushara going to masiva soon, how Madara who was our movement yajirobe
so here's the policy.
I wonder about do I mean by the aroma, decision of allow for, to believe there's some good comes to him, he makes some for his Lord honey, that was shocking. And he thinks I was
going to fall back and we'll see what goes on. But if some hardship comes in, some information comes to him, honey that he gives him to all US nanodiamond to his Lord.
And he's fishing. And for the moment, the believer will be rewarded in every case.
Now this time for lesson how to work data, goes back to again what we know about Allah subhana wa Tada, Allah Subhana, WA tada does not produce anything which is purely evil. Everything that God has done is based on his knowledge, his wisdom, His justice, and even his mercy. So therefore, even if we see something that we don't like, some kind of difficulty or some kind of trial, we still may come to Allah subhana wa Tada. Because we know that that sin is coming from Allah subhana wa Tada. And as I said, alesana data as all of these attributes, even if we don't understand the action, or we don't feel like it's the best for us at that time, we still may come before also handle the data.
So these are some of the characteristics and some of the attributes of it, as the scholars have mentioned, so we have different aspects we have, as we said, we have a modality, which is basically this is really like praise and just saying words, what's in your heart is irrelevant. And what do you mean them or not, whether they're sincere or not,
and just seeing words, some good words about someone else, commending someone, but the tool
and it can make some for less and
this is something completely different. And it is then has meanings to it and it has components that must also be in the heart.
And if they are not there, then you're not really making
any of these components or the hearts are not there, then this is not really
that you make the lesson without it. So when you say 100
you are speaking about Allah's perfect attributes, you're talking about what Allah subhanho wa Taala had done for all of the creation, you're referring to what Allah subhanho wa Taala has done for you. And you're saying it with the intention of having a love for Allah subhana wa tada having submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala being in a state of all for less than an hour without and these qualities. And actually, as I alluded to before,
the relationship between Alhamdulillah soccer without getting into too much detail. We said for example, that just want to say a sugar is by by the tongue by the heart and by the hand and the same hub does only by the tongue, but actually as I said, Some scholars have shown that also
100 is an inclusive of
and the relationship between the two and is from what I can see from reading all these various different writers
on this is this 100 and sugar are like, amen, and Islam or like for prayer and miskeen.
That if you just say
if you just use the word hum it is inclusive of so all the aspects of sugar of thankfulness and gratefulness, they are captured under.
But if you say and also super the lake in the Hadith that we mentioned,
for soccer, there, you're talking about slightly different aspects when you separate them. When you say, oh my god and Shakira, you're talking about slightly different as much in the same way that we talked about in the body class. If you say man, it includes Islam. But if you say Amen, and Islam then it's almost slightly different essence. But in general, is inclusive of sugar. So what we can say is every sugar is a kind of hunt.
But not every hump is necessarily
every sugar and every grateful feeling you have to someone who has done good to you. This is a subset of.
But hunt also includes other things, as we said. And if you talk about all those attributes and you may come towards attributes, but it's not sugar.
So, sugar actually is a subset of hemp. And what that means also is that part of a
part of unlike most scholars, when they talk about the sugar part of enhance is that you implement
by your actions also, you implement that humped by your actions also. And what that means
is, for example, if you received any NEMA any bounty from Allah Subhana, WA Tada, it is part of a shocker, it is part of
that you do not use that bounty in a way that is displeasing to the one who's giving it to you.
This is disrespectful and ungrateful to the one who has given us you.
And this is part of sugar. And as we said, sugar is a subset of. So it's also a part of
part of your responsibility, as we said, hands is also not just hover, but in sharp part again, part of how you're trying to enact that statement of humped is by making sure that any, anything that Alyssa has given you, you make sure you do not use it in a way that is displeasing to us. And
this is part of part of saying 100.
So that has to do with the word. And
what we can conclude from that is it actually
does a heavy concept. Ham does a heavy concept. And in fact, don't just think of it as some kind of words of praise to something that comes from your phone. But it is something that has to come from your tongue. If you don't say it, then it's not.
But it also has to be something in your heart. And it has to be also something that is affecting your actions.
There's a few other points that we want to make with respect to this complete sense of hamdulillah here, I mean, the first thing we want to talk about the fact that the what happens, which is a common noun, and this Mogens
it has the word owl in front of it.
So anytime you take a common noun and you put the word owl in front of it. So actually,
if you put the word owl in tournaments, this now means generality. So basically what I'm trying to say, in English, is when you say al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. It's not just v Praise to Allah subhanho wa Taala unless you know in English would be praise You mean. But basically it means all the praise. And hamdulillah means all of the press
is a general term. It means Allah subhanho wa Taala is deserving of all of the praise and all of the forms of praise.
And if you think about what people praise in this world, to people see, for example, something wonderful in the creation of the beautiful equation, or they see an act of someone does an act of bravery and act of sacrifice. So they praise that act
for Who is the one who actually created the thing with the person who was the one who gave that person the ability, and God is the person to do that act of sacrifices.
In reality, all of it goes back to all this.
So the one who was really deserving of praise is actually Allah subhanho wa Taala and only Allah subhana wa Tada. And in fact, even the one who does not believe in God,
because he sees some beautiful aspects, whether it's man made or not a part of nature, whatever, when he praises that, even if he doesn't believe in God,
he's actually praising the one who made it.
And this is beautiful. He's actually praising the fact that the one who made this made this interview void.
So how does it All praise belongs to listening, even from the biggest atheist in the world, in reality, he's praising Allah
because Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who created the lesson I know what data is the one who made this beautiful forgive it is excellent qualities that this person is praising and so forth.
So this is all part of the aspect of Oh praise belongs to Allah subhana wa Tada. And when it comes, for example, to getting blessings from Alyson and with that,
we have many blessings from Allah subhanho wa Taala that we understand that only Allah subhana wa tada can be thanked and we can
Be gracious towards Allah subhanaw taala only, like, for example, our life, the last 100 which Allah has given us,
all of our innate abilities, he's all come to us from Allah subhana wa.
So therefore, let's have a look at all these these deserving of praise for those who even went out if people do good for you and give you something.
In reality, again, it is only Allah subhanho wa Taala who is deserving of praise.
Because in general, human beings do something out of some intention.
They may be wanting something in return from you.
You know, I do a favor for you, and then you, I expect you someday, to do me a favor. So they expect something in return, for the expects some kind of words of praise, they want something from you, like Thank you, that was beautiful what you did, and this is what they're hoping for, or they're trying to achieve some goal. It might even be a praiseworthy thing like trying to free themselves from greed and so forth. Even if he's doing it out of reward from Allah subhana wa Tada. But in reality, even that person who does some good for you, he's not free of some ulterior motives.
The only one who is actually giving you any bounty, and not needing or wanting anything from you, or from anyone else, or having any ulterior motive is to listen or don't listen to what God is self sufficient, doesn't need you doesn't need your praise, doesn't need your worship. So unless God is actually the only one who purely gives you something and doesn't need anything, or is not doing it for any ulterior motive, so therefore, once again, Alison handleless, Allah is deserving of praise.
that here means for vacations in general.
And then we have Lila. Lila.
So this man here,
there's a lot that when you put this meme of possessiveness, you drop the elephant it becomes real and humble.
So this Lamb has a number of possible meanings. The most obvious one
any exclusiveness for all us.
So hum do all types of praise, Exclusive OR exclusive, only for all of us.
This is the meaning of the lamb here, it is exclusiveness. It could also mean ownership means it belongs forthrightly, only two of us.
So when you say Alhamdulillah
the meaning of it is that All praise is only for Allah
appraises only for Allah.
And this is an equational sentences This is a statement of fact.
This is a statement of fact, an equation says one of the difference between equational sense
and a verbal sentence is that the equational sentence can imply permanence and continuous. So this is a statement of fact, that is always true. And hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. under all circumstances in all places in all times full of the hum belongs to Allah subhanaw taala. In fact, he was deserving of praise before the first person ever place.
chiropractor when we study how Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us this expression in the Quran Alhamdulillah
we see that it's very different than its conclusions that we reach from it are very different than if Allah subhanho wa Taala
had given us other senses instead of for example,
if at the beginning of slowness, in fact, they have instead of listening to what God is saying and humbler since, as we'll talk about later, there's something known as facts. And
we're going to go from the last like a third person speaking to first person and we're talking about a humbler
kind of speaking about Allah, and then we're going to say iecq and Abu you know, the we worship. So we're going to kind of jump from the third person to the first person and we'll talk about that inshallah, when it comes. So the beginning of it is not so simple.
For example, Allah
and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us at hamdulillah to begin at hamdulillah All praise belongs to Allah and I praise Allah
and the meaning the difference is significant, because it's the words where I praise Allah
That could mean for example, that I praise a love but others do not praise.
It is not what almost I know what that is telling
me is All praise belongs to Allah. So
if it was to say I praise Allah,
this would also give the impression that the praise that you're giving to Allah subhanho wa Taala is something sufficient for something comparable to what he deserves.
The homeless man what God in fact that ordered us to praise Allah subhana wa tada put it in the imperative, praise Allah subhana wa tada then Allah subhanho wa Taala would have given us a command that we would not have been able to fulfill. Because Allah subhana wa tada is praised, what he's deserving of, is much greater than all the creation can present. In fact, in the draft of the policy,
proposal socialism used to say no, now they can pick them up.
So now this other term down here, and I cannot comparably praise you, but you are, as you praise yourself. So homeless,
instead of telling us to read and Becky Alhamdulillah love to have a look around what God would have given us the command to praise Allah subhanho wa Taala, who will not be able to praise Allah subhanaw taala in the way that he is deserving
by the fact that Allah subhana wa tada says, Alhamdulillah not, for example, the law or anything of that nature, waving the command imperative, your meaning is very different. And so we find to have a problem, find, and hamdulillah can all praise belong, so let's handle God. In fact, regardless of whether you praise them or not, or praise belongs to Allah.
This is what that handler is telling us. But we want to be among those people who recognize that Allah is deserving of all praise, and what that means and we want to implement it in our lives. This is why there's some scholars say it is weak, and other scholars say it is
probably looks to me like it is sweet.
As I said, Some scholars are like a basic.
And how do you think the Bible says
the best you are? The best You are the most virtuous God is 111.
But we just said that underlies a statement of fact, right? How could that be a job.
But as we said, it is a statement of fact that means and
so when you say at Hamdulillah, as a kind of job, you are asking Allah subhana wa tada to make you from those people who are fulfilling, to the best of your building 111 having the right relationships all the time with Dallas, with respect to the love in the heart and on the submissiveness and using what the lesson handler God has given you in the right way, and recognizing all this matter, without his bounty upon you and about others, and also without his perfect attributes, and to be able to fulfill all that in your life. This is the meaning of the job. And humbly lovers, as I said, when you just look at it, that it is a statement of facts, but in reality,
it can have a meaning, which is much deeper than that.
There are many things that we could say about that. But I want to move on to the next lecture. So I'll just mention one final point about him. And the fact that the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala begins after Bismillah R Rahman Rahim, which as we said should already engender some closest to us. It begins by saying
and when you think about what is the Quran,
the Quran is the book of guidance from Allah subhana wa God.
So this is a book that Allah has revealed. For you to know what way of life to live, what is proper for your soul, your soul, what is best for you in both this life and
so let's not go without it begins this afternoon.
and in fact, in reality is someone does not have the characteristic of gratitude towards Allah subhanaw taala if someone does not understand that Allah subhana wa tada is deserving of gratitude and praise and thanks.
Then in reality, Kenya and so many people, for example, in the world nowadays, even if you came to them and told them, Look, this book is a book from God's a book of guidance from God, even if they'll believe you, it's a book of guidance from God, people don't care.
They have no feeling of gratitude towards Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah subhana wa tada has blessed him with society. So if you do not have that feeling of gratitude, that feeling of humped towards Allah subhanho wa Taala you are not going to benefit from this book. It has to be the opening feeling that you have this beautiful
reciate this revelation that has come from Allah subhana wa Tada. And so therefore you're going to turn to this revelation. So unless Anaconda begins to book and humbly lead or blasphemy, and it's developing you that feeling of hunger, which should help you inshallah, when you turn to the book, the more you have that feeling of it, the more you will sell a turn with desire with the willingness to learn from the book of Allah subhana wa Tada. And one last point, I said that would be the last one, but one last point is the scholars talk about the fact that hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen 400 ala, some of them say this is a statement which is even better than nyla Hello.
Because Alhamdulillah is inclusive of Laila Hello, plus it is
because when you say 100 and now you're saying that oh the perfect attributes
belong to Allah subhanaw taala all of the bounties are from Alyson with us. And if that is the case, this is Allah subhana wa Tada. Then it means that no one is worthy of worship except Allah subhana wa. So actually the statement that
comprises the statement learn a lot.
And because you cannot understand what that means, without it also meaning
and shalonda points will end. The goal is tomorrow night inshallah we'll continue. As I said, there's much more we can say about that. You can inshallah, study it on your own. We'll move on to
