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

listen, I'm not 100.

00:00:09--> 00:00:10


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

seller will continue.

00:00:16--> 00:00:22

And let them do that we finished up our discussion of 100 of the army.

00:00:23--> 00:00:29

And then after hamdu, lillahi Rabbil aalameen we say, Rahman Rahim.

00:00:30--> 00:00:51

The first thing that we want to know what Stalin always discusses, what's the relationship now between this verse and the verse that comes before and shallow when we get to the verse after verse relationship with the following verse. And we've already spoken about the fact that Rahman and Rahim These are two names that have already been mentioned in the book.

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

And they are repeated once again here. The first and the most obvious aspect of the why they repeated here and which

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

seem to be in complete agreement about

00:01:05--> 00:01:13

is that after all, this man with Darla has declared that he is problem solving. And for the lack of

00:01:15--> 00:01:39

a better term, we'll call it the lord of rules or something of that nature. After Allah subhanaw taala mentions a little blathering, he has stated his little will be His Lordship. So now the question is, and the most obvious question, when you hear about the concept of Lord Rama, the first idea that comes to mind is that of authority and better power.

00:01:41--> 00:01:44

So the question is, what kind of rubia is this?

00:01:45--> 00:02:01

And is this a typical obeah? Right, those people who have authority in the world, usually if they have power, they say, what's the famous expression power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. That may be true for humans, not to the district all the time.

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

But those expressions, the first part, power corrupts. And in many people, we see this in this world, at least when people have power and authority. They use it in ways which are not proper. So after mentioning that Alyssa Hannah was on his little blog, Alyssa Hurwitz explains what kind of Ruby

00:02:23--> 00:02:24

it is an overview of Rama

00:02:26--> 00:02:27

problemi, or,

00:02:30--> 00:02:45

as we talked about, also, Rob, this means he's the Creator, he's the nurture he's the Sustainer. And another aspect that we can see about this and understand from this is obviously, no one fourth, Allah subhanho wa Taala. To make this creation,

00:02:46--> 00:02:58

there is no pending force upon Allah subhanho wa Taala. No one forced him to make the situation, No one forced him to take it upon himself to be loved, and to nourish all of this creation.

00:02:59--> 00:03:09

So therefore, we can understand from this that also, the creation itself, and his nurturing of the creation is all simply a manifestation of his Rama.

00:03:11--> 00:03:17

And in fact, Mohammed Shafi was talking about the destiny lies need to probably in the scheme as it fits better here.

00:03:18--> 00:03:38

He said that speaking about why just Rahim I mentioned in the best manner, he said, opposes the fact that the creation of the heavens and the earth and the sustenance of the whole universe, have no other motivation than making manifest Allah quality of mercy, he himself had no need of any of these things.

00:03:40--> 00:03:47

In addition to that, also, we can understand from that, then, that this creation

00:03:48--> 00:04:02

is not the result of Allah subhanho wa Taala His wrath. And Allah subhanaw taala did not create, for example, this creation out of anger, or for the sake of the purpose of storing or punishing people, but actually Alyssa has

00:04:03--> 00:04:18

created this again out of his drama and out of his mercy. And if we look at the creation of we look at all the $400 Global anime, we can see his relationship with a lot I mean, it is clearly one.

00:04:20--> 00:04:59

And if you just look at this creation, you can see that the relationship between the creator and the created the royal family that created everything, the balance, the harmony, the way things work together and all of this universe and are consistent with one another. You can see that it is truly one of the manifestation of Allah subhana wa tada the mercy is shown to us we can witnesses being in VR, and especially with respect to human beings, especially with respect to us human beings. There's many ways in which it is clear that Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

As Rob allowed me in his role as Rob, he is truly been compassionate and merciful to us. First of all he has given us

00:05:10--> 00:05:21

he's created us and developed us and nurtured us in such a way that our physical or spiritual or mental needs are met, such that we can come to full maturity.

00:05:23--> 00:05:34

He has created us with a fitrah and natural disposition, to seek guidance to seek what is best for us and to flee from what is harmful to us.

00:05:36--> 00:06:00

And as I said, especially with respect to mankind, as we see in more than one place in the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah God has subjugated the rest of this creation to the authority and to the use of mankind, as Alyssa Henrik Allah and one of the verses of this nature. Allah subhana wa Dallas's as I'm turtle and Lola Kuma is similar to motovlog was de la

00:06:02--> 00:06:03

la hirato.

00:06:05--> 00:06:18

Looking handleless, Allah says, do not see that unless mandalika is subjective for you, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth, and is completed and protected his graces upon you, both parents and hidden.

00:06:20--> 00:06:37

And then there's three other also very important aspects of him being robbed, and his obeah being manifested in a merciful way. And we'll talk about those inshallah, shortly those are related to his Sharia law giving and his giving Amen.

00:06:39--> 00:06:47

When we talked about the Bismillah, when we talked about this, you learn from under him, we spoke about the names of Rahman and Rahim in some detail what they mean.

00:06:48--> 00:07:00

And I mentioned at that time that this concept of a Rama is an extremely important concept, unless God is not bringing a man or him in the best manner and then in the first few verses,

00:07:02--> 00:07:10

without obviously pointing to a very important concept. So inshallah, as I spoke about that time, we will discuss the concept of

00:07:11--> 00:07:13

time without in more detail.

00:07:14--> 00:07:25

Of course, let me also bring up some other points of why Rahman Rahim may be repeated once again. So we have this new love remember him, and we have the letter of the army. And then we have,

00:07:26--> 00:07:30

again, one of the aspects pointed out by some of the elements,

00:07:32--> 00:07:36

which is very closely related to some nationality alluded to,

00:07:37--> 00:07:39

is this when you hear

00:07:41--> 00:07:43

when you hear the concept of love, when you hear the title,

00:07:45--> 00:08:00

the first thing that's going to come over you is the idea of someone who has authority. So the concept of Rob, when you when you say, I love Europe, and we remind you of example, in a hospital, that allows Europe, this is a kind of

00:08:02--> 00:08:13

this is a kind of warning, when you remind people that this is a kind of warning, because you're reminding them that there's someone who has complete authority over them.

00:08:15--> 00:08:38

And that is the first kind of feeling that you get from the wardrobe. So let's head on with data. After that, after that kind of warning, Allah subhana wa Tada, this is something which is buggy. And it's something that will inspire us to want to be close to that and to do good, and to become beloved to that. So after mentioning that, a little bit on me, I'll listen to him with that tada adventures.

00:08:40--> 00:08:42

Which is, of course, kind of

00:08:43--> 00:08:50

inspire us to want to come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and not just have fear but have hope. And Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:08:53--> 00:08:54

And as

00:08:55--> 00:08:56

good as always also mentioned,

00:08:57--> 00:09:02

the need for Rama on the part of the human beings is great to hear well this

00:09:04--> 00:09:47

is great, because one of the greatest aspects of who you are. And if you think of ourselves and how we are, how often we fail to do the work that we should be doing, how often we transgress the limits, then you realize that we are definitely a creation that is greatly and Neela Brahma, I will listen to what God is most. So listen handle, Jada reminds us. Again, as we said you recycle about 17 times. That means you will say these two names 34 times at least 34 times every day. So look ahead of what God is reminding us of this fact that is full of mercy, and he is ready to bestow His mercy upon his speeches.

00:09:49--> 00:09:50

Now the term Rama

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

in the Arabic language is also very comprehensive. As you probably noticed by now the Arabic language is somewhat rich compared to some others.

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


00:10:01--> 00:10:40

And so therefore sometimes you'll find one word in Arabic that will cover very heavy, lots of meanings. And then they'll also have other words that will describe each one of those particular meanings. So, for example, it's usually described as mercy. But it is useful to know the type of tenderness and feedings, or stimulation the person learns to show kindness, and compassion to others. So it covers the qualities of love, or compassion, or benevolence, of generosity. All of these are actually encompassed in the Arabic word Rama.

00:10:41--> 00:10:54

And then, again, like we spoke about earlier, as he also goes into discussion here about the fact that the only real source of mercy is Alicia hammer.

00:10:55--> 00:10:56

The only real source of mysteries.

00:10:58--> 00:11:15

And again, as we've talked about, before, I was the only one that will show Rama and not expect anything or ask for anything in return for less than $100, not in need, of anything from the human beings. So let's handle what God gives him out of his own will.

00:11:16--> 00:11:33

While human beings there's always some kind of ulterior motive, and even if human beings as we'll talk about later, even if human beings do an act of mercy and kindness to another human being, in reality, the source of that was a lesson how to without

00:11:34--> 00:11:42

discussing surely will bring the heavy lifting, to shows that any act of it in this world is because of drama.

00:11:45--> 00:11:52

So as we go through life, you should be aware we should be conscious of the fact of how alisson hunwick Allah is merciful.

00:11:53--> 00:12:11

Because obviously, when you think of all of Islam, one of the main if not the main thing about Islam is to get closer to Allah subhanaw taala to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala better. So therefore the more love in your heart The more feeling you have in your heart towards Allah subhana wa tada

00:12:12--> 00:12:20

that will drive you to become closer to Allah subhana wa tada to want to choose Allah subhanho wa Taala more, to try to flee from displeasing Allah subhana wa.

00:12:21--> 00:12:33

And by appreciating what is meant by Allah Subhana Allah, God is Rama and you're always conscious of this fact. Of course, you're always reminded of it in your heart, but as you go through life, inshallah This will help you come closer to Allah.

00:12:36--> 00:12:46

The most obvious example of the things that we can think about the demonstrate the merciless encounter with God, if you go to a salon, there is a sort of this name.

00:12:48--> 00:12:58

And this surah is a surah that will remind you of what it means that Allah subhanho wa Taala is mine and what Allah subhana wa Taala has done for mankind.

00:12:59--> 00:13:01

And how us human being

00:13:02--> 00:13:11

is actually addressing both human beings in the gym, how there's no room for you really to deny any of the bounties and the favors that are listening to what God has given.

00:13:12--> 00:13:30

So, from the beginning of the Surah Surah, Allah subhana wa jal has given us a reminder of how his drama is manifesting. So, the sort of begins are rough man Harlem is more on call upon insane a level by an assumption will accommodate

00:13:31--> 00:13:42

the sort of begins Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Man, because of the Quran, he created human beings, he called them the bionic explanation, assumption with

00:13:43--> 00:13:50

the sun and the moon on the orbits, and then mentions of course, many things of this world. And this sort of again this name,

00:13:51--> 00:14:03

because Allah subhanaw taala is mentioning many of the manifestations of his drama and just so the person is conscious of it. He thinks about the fact for example, upon Allah subhanho wa jal has given us

00:14:04--> 00:14:17

this, of course, all these news one of the most important aspects of Islam, but the fact that he's created us the fact that the sun and the moon are in orbit in perfect harmony is over all of these days are from the balances of God's

00:14:18--> 00:14:21

promise and without also reminds us in the Quran when I do them as a lady

00:14:23--> 00:14:47

in the law level for him, if you try to count all of the balances of Alyssa helicopter, you will not be able to enumerate them. And verily online, forgiving merciful, Noah said Allah subhanho wa Taala says if you were to try to enumerate and count all the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala you will not be able to count them. And then he says, in the law

00:14:48--> 00:14:51

certainly Allah subhana wa tada is forgiving merciful

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

when these kinds of phrases come into put on us to think about what's the relationship between what Allah saying here and what the lesson here is giving us

00:15:00--> 00:15:19

All of these bounces giving mankind all of these bounces. Yet in reality, how often does mankind respond in the proper way? So even though God has given us more galaxies than we can count, and we actually know that all this random data has given us more about the human concern that we can even imagine.

00:15:20--> 00:15:36

And yes, we still fail. In not even performing in a way that would probably be beyond our means as human beings, but even according to what we are capable of doing. So we're not talking about performing beyond our means. But even with respect to what we are capable of doing.

00:15:39--> 00:15:50

So let's move on without after mentioning that there's no way you could enumerate all of the bounces or look at hundreds and hundreds allow lists 100 elements is a very he is forgiving most.

00:15:52--> 00:16:00

And this is part of his general rather than Alison Henrik and his kin to this, that Allah subhanaw taala has given to all mankind.

00:16:03--> 00:16:10

In fact, he has about 300 pages. So that's why something because as you mentioned before, a lot of it is not the fear, but that's

00:16:13--> 00:16:22

the coffee, about this relationship between God and mankind. And how all this man with God is always keeping the door open and forgiving mankind.

00:16:23--> 00:16:31

He describes the relationship between Allah was amended him and mankind by saying that if you think about Allah subhana wa tada

00:16:32--> 00:16:57

because Allah subhanho wa Taala knows everything about you. He knows your good things, and he knows your worst things. He knows what's in your mind. Sometimes he knows what you're doing. He knows everything about you. So, as he says, It is as if Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling you that I know things about you that if your parents knew this, they would disown you. If your wife knew they would divorce you. If your slave knew these things, they'd run away from you.

00:16:58--> 00:17:16

If your neighbor knew they think he'd tear down his house to move away from all this man with Allah knows all of these things about us. Yet Allah subhanho wa Taala still given and his Rama and his mercy He is still providing for us he's still giving for us and he's still opening the door for us to have his mercy.

00:17:18--> 00:17:31

Well, this is true, obviously with respect to the believers and non believers but especially with respect to the non believers think about Alice and her daughter's relationship with a number of years, how much he provides for them and

00:17:32--> 00:17:47

how much he does not immediately hold them responsible for their Cooper, leaving the door always open to Toba. And if he wants to change any day, it is open. They want to turn to Allah subhanaw taala it is open for them. This is part of Allah.

00:17:48--> 00:18:02

They are saying things about Allah subhana wa tada that if they were to say it about us, as individuals would be very upset. There's a couple of nuggets in which the polycephalum has alluded to that fact. And one of them, the purpose of film said

00:18:04--> 00:18:05

that I had to borrow

00:18:06--> 00:18:12

a woman Allah hinda, who you should have who Be who you juggle a whole wallet from

00:18:14--> 00:18:22

the policy Selim told us that there is no one who is more patient to the harmful things that he hears then all of a sudden with that.

00:18:23--> 00:18:32

They associate partners with him and they say they make a son for him, and yet he continues to provide for them.

00:18:33--> 00:18:37

Another idea of some of the Hadith, Allah subhana wa tada and he puts it on a little

00:18:39--> 00:18:45

WWII Adam, welcome Ukrainian and you can join me for set how many of you item Well, me

00:18:47--> 00:18:58

too many. here Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying that even enemies and human beings have delighted me and it's not proper for them to deny me. We have abused me and it's not proper for them to beat me.

00:18:59--> 00:19:16

They have denied me by saying that Allah subhanaw taala will not recreate the creation, although it's as easy for him to recreate as was created the first time and they have abused him by saying that he has taken a son while in fact Allah is someone who does not give birth was not given birth to

00:19:17--> 00:19:18


00:19:20--> 00:19:46

In another report, which does not look like it's an authentic hadith, but the meaning of it we can see is true. That Allah subhanho wa Taala says who the son of Adam, you have nothing just towards me. My blessings are being descended upon you and your evils being raised to me. How many blessings Have I given you to make me beloved to you while I am not in need of you? And how many times have you made me angry with your sins while you are in need of me?

00:19:48--> 00:19:49

So all this,

00:19:50--> 00:19:57

Allah subhanho wa Taala continues with having mercy to all of his creatures

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

and effects

00:20:00--> 00:20:22

He's actually more merciful to his creation than any of the creation are to one another. And in fact, all the acts of mercy that we see in this world are nothing but the results of almost drama. And another heavy focus on school this evening Lamia, Rama and xlm inherit metal wire gaining genuine influence.

00:20:24--> 00:20:27

So we have ethos of hula v Hydra homeowner

00:20:29--> 00:20:30

whose work shoe

00:20:32--> 00:20:38

to sandwich to Shana Rama, your karma via a bird who Yeoman piano.

00:20:39--> 00:21:20

And this hadith the prophet SAW Selim has told us that Allah subhanho wa Taala has 100 portions of mercy. And he has sent down just one portion of that mercy between the jinn and for animals, the insects, the creatures, out of that one portion of mercy, of the actual compassion and mercy that acts as a mother for her child. All of these acts are because of that one portion of mercy that Allah subhanaw taala has sent down to this world, and he has kept 99 portions of mercy with him by which he will show mercy to his servants on the Day of Judgment.

00:21:23--> 00:21:30

Now, when we look at the world, and this is one thing that many disbelievers many atheists in particular mentioned,

00:21:31--> 00:21:37

they say for example, if Allah is merciful, why is it that we see so much suffering in the world?

00:21:38--> 00:21:46

This great mercy overflowing from Allah subhana wa tada? How is it that we see so much suffering in this world?

00:21:48--> 00:21:56

The first point to note is that this is a question that has a very limited scope to because they are just concerned with this world.

00:21:57--> 00:22:04

They are talking about what is occurring in this world. And we know that Allah subhanaw taala will never wrong anyone.

00:22:05--> 00:22:27

And even if someone is suffering in this world, if Allah subhanho wa Taala, rewards him in the Hereafter, as a clear hadith of others from the Bible says that the most miserable person in this world if he gets just the smallest monk in the Hereafter, he would be so overjoyed. And in such a state, that he said it would be like he never suffered, he doesn't even remember his suffering.

00:22:29--> 00:22:39

And so, the listener without is never going to own anyway, it may look like someone is suffering in this world. But this is not a real eternal kind of suffering.

00:22:40--> 00:22:46

But even this kind of suffering, and even things when you look at things which may look like difficulties in this world,

00:22:48--> 00:22:55

you cannot always look at things in a superficial level. Many times there are benefits to things that you have to think about.

00:22:57--> 00:22:58

And I will go back, again,

00:22:59--> 00:23:01

I think it is the most important.

00:23:02--> 00:23:05

Roger gives the example of someone who is a parent,

00:23:06--> 00:23:08

your Listen, all your parents listening to me.

00:23:09--> 00:23:14

If you take a parent who has a child, that's why he's called the parents.

00:23:16--> 00:23:29

And he decides that he's going to be merciful, unkind to this child. So he doesn't discipline the child at all, he doesn't teach the child how to behave, he spoils the child, he allows the child to do whatever he wants to do.

00:23:31--> 00:23:33

In the long run, this is going to be harmful for the child,

00:23:34--> 00:23:48

the child will not learn responsibility and not know how to be here. So this is an act that looks like mercy. But actually, this is harmful. This is not mercy at all. And that's why this is not part of the responsibility of the parents. Just let the children love.

00:23:49--> 00:23:52

That's something that looks like his mercy, but it is not.

00:23:53--> 00:24:18

But if you take the opposite case of the parents, and of course, we're not talking about his kids here, but the parents who takes care of itself, make sure his child learns manners and respect behavior, learns knowledge and so forth. So he may make his child sit down and learn something learn to put on for example, and the child might be crying and screaming and doesn't want to go play on the internet or whatever.

00:24:20--> 00:24:23

But he insists, because he knows that this is what the child needs.

00:24:24--> 00:24:41

Which one is the Merciful One. Again, outwardly it looks like this one is torturing the child. But in reality, this is the most, this is the one that is making the most. So therefore, you cannot look at things at superficial levels and just look at something and say I look at most of this and

00:24:42--> 00:24:48

we don't know all of the factors behind is something that we look at. may look to us like it is not mercyone In fact,

00:24:50--> 00:24:58

brothers healthcare he was telling me about these rare cases where someone doesn't feel any pain, doesn't experience pain.

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

Pain is

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

One of the most important things for health,

00:25:03--> 00:25:07

that makes sense. Pain is one of the most important things to help it's like those red lights on the car.

00:25:09--> 00:25:11

If there's no pain, then you don't know when something's wrong.

00:25:13--> 00:25:14

So this child,

00:25:17--> 00:25:29

this child doesn't experience pain. So they have to, for example, restrain her teeth at night because she was biting off her tongue. consider them fury, she goes out in the cold nights, you get frostbite.

00:25:31--> 00:25:50

Her skin was burning from the oven, right, someone had to smell the skin burn, before they did anything about chest level monitor, keeping her body temperature at all times, because she doesn't feel she's having pain, fever and so forth. So we think a pain is something bad. But actually pain is almost unheard of with that.

00:25:52--> 00:26:05

And even these hardships that people suffer in this world, if we did not suffer hardships, and did not realize what hardships were, then our fear of all the sandwich, it probably would not be present.

00:26:07--> 00:26:12

Because you have to suffer hardships to know that what it means to be punished, and on the Day of Judgment.

00:26:13--> 00:26:17

You get justice, small hardship in this life, and some people complain for weeks.

00:26:19--> 00:26:21

I got a hangnail and I was hurt, and

00:26:22--> 00:26:27

they complain for weeks. So if you think about this, what kind of data can really do to

00:26:29--> 00:26:38

me this is a very, very important lesson. And many times as we know many times the hardships and the sufferings that come from Alyson Hamlet

00:26:40--> 00:26:43

are actually a reminder to us to change our ways.

00:26:45--> 00:27:08

And to listen with Allah May afflict people with a punishment may affect Muslim punishments, with disgrace with humility, and it is assigned to them that they have to change their ways. Whether they do or not, of course, that is always the question. But this is a blessing. This is a blessing that he thinks came to them in this life, rather than in the here.

00:27:09--> 00:27:52

And in fact, one of the important ways by which Allah subhanho wa Taala in his mercy, remove things from us, in this world, as opposed to punishing us for them in the Hereafter, which will be a much greater punishment is by making us go through trials making the school through hardship, even the pickle of thorns, even the pick of a thorn, from the levers can remove sins from us. So all of these things we look at as misery as suffering and actually if we knew if we understood, they are all inshallah parser but I'ma listen with God. So the focus I sent him when he made God so Alyssa Henrik data, one of the things that I choose to say is recorded in Muslim

00:27:53--> 00:27:57

oofy, Machado, Lacy, Nick,

00:27:58--> 00:28:07

all of the gorgeous in your hands, and evil is not to be attributed to because actually there's nothing that Allah subhanho wa Taala does, that is pure evil.

00:28:09--> 00:28:11

So evil is not to be attributed to Allah.

00:28:12--> 00:28:14

Even the creation of a chiffon

00:28:15--> 00:28:19

the creation of a chiffon, if you might think,

00:28:20--> 00:28:27

when you go and sit on ask permission to be left until the day of judgment. And she wishes she thought it wasn't around, how many things

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

to do.

00:28:30--> 00:28:34

But even on and his being here is part of

00:28:37--> 00:28:41

by chiffons existence, there are many, many benefits.

00:28:43--> 00:28:48

This is something that you'll find discussed in much detail, I may just take a couple points from what he said.

00:28:49--> 00:29:07

One of the things that we get from a shutdown is many of the actions of worship that we do that make us appreciate Allah subhanaw taala more and get closer to Allah subhanaw taala more is because of the existence of chiffon. And because of the existence of this relative evil that we see him on this

00:29:09--> 00:29:13

account he told us or her without and begging for help.

00:29:14--> 00:29:19

Fearing Alicia and without putting your trust in Allah subhana wa tada to protect you from all the evil ones.

00:29:21--> 00:29:34

This is something that is good that should be in our hearts. But if it was not for evil, if it was not, for example, for a chiffon and his followers, then believers would not necessarily have that feeling in their heart.

00:29:37--> 00:29:45

Even the lesson that the shift on useless and the story of Adam and Eve celemony shippon is a very important message.

00:29:47--> 00:29:58

We see the lesson of the one who refuse to submit to Allah subhanaw taala was arrogant and proud. said he's better than the one that Allah subhanho wa Taala is already hence above them

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

and we see

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

An example of a human who committed a wall, but repented to all of our data

00:30:06--> 00:30:15

is a two very, very important examples of very important lessons that we can get. Even when you think about even the appreciation of beauty,

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

the appreciation of beauty of Allah subhanho wa Taala as many attributes that He is merciful and forgiving, and so forth. Even these things if it weren't for the relative opposites that exists, who would not appreciate the beauty

00:30:32--> 00:30:41

the evil of his ugliness that makes us yearn for and appreciate the beauty and turn more to Allah subhana wa tada and be thankful to Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:30:43--> 00:30:52

Anyway, that's a long discussion that's available in both English and Arabic. So I won't go into that any further. It's part of Russia,

00:30:53--> 00:30:57

in the jinn and devils, if anyone is interested to read

00:30:59--> 00:31:01

Penrose, we'll see how the law

00:31:02--> 00:31:18

that Allah subhanho wa Taala has a special mercy and he talks about Rahman and Rahim, one of the one of the implications and one of the interpretations given by some scholars is that Allah subhanaw taala is Rahim towards the believers. He has a special roadmap for the believers.

00:31:19--> 00:31:21

Now what does that mean exactly?

00:31:22--> 00:31:30

This means to listen to what God has a special offer for those people who have turned to Allah subhanaw taala and then accepted his faith

00:31:31--> 00:31:41

and believes in him and submitted to him. So because they've done those acts, Allah subhanho wa Taala responds with a special aura.

00:31:42--> 00:31:45

And this special Rama is in many ways,

00:31:47--> 00:31:50

and as I alluded to earlier, the facts that Allah has given us this Hold on.

00:31:52--> 00:32:02

Hold on. This is one of the most important aspects of Alicia Hana which is the first thing to look into with Alan mentioned in this oral after mizzima.

00:32:07--> 00:32:16

And one of the great blessings from Allah subhanho wa Taala. In this guidance that he's given us, is the ability to know almost at hand with that.

00:32:18--> 00:32:20

The Hebrew process in him that Allah has 99 names,

00:32:21--> 00:32:26

if you go through the Quran, if you go through this another province I send them

00:32:27--> 00:32:38

one important aspect of knowledge that truly distinguishes us by the way from all the other peoples is a sound knowledge of the Creator.

00:32:39--> 00:32:43

And it is 99 names and attributes and action is more than 99

00:32:44--> 00:32:47

there's bodies that we know all the data

00:32:48--> 00:32:53

and I will come back to that point again. So when we discuss after we discuss medical imaging,

00:32:55--> 00:33:02

the Sharia that Allah subhana wa tada has sent down for us to go is also part of his drama.

00:33:03--> 00:33:07

He has made his city and situate that it is consistent with our

00:33:09--> 00:33:22

natural disposition and it is something that is easy for us to fall into love to have the will to follow so listen handle a guy says For example oh my god i Lakewood beginning and how to

00:33:23--> 00:33:28

Allah subhanho wa Taala says that he's not placed any hardship in your religion.

00:33:29--> 00:33:34

Well let's listen to what God also says God is a load before we use it. Why don't you read

00:33:36--> 00:33:41

and listen to what God says he desires for your ease and he does not desire for you hardship

00:33:42--> 00:33:43

to send me to the fullest.

00:33:45--> 00:33:49

Allah subhana wa tada describes him as Rama, Rama Seneca

00:33:52--> 00:33:56

we have not sent you except as a mostly mouth for

00:33:59--> 00:34:03

the revealing of the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala says when is

00:34:05--> 00:34:08

the end and equally shaped? Who then will

00:34:11--> 00:34:16

reveal the privacy These are from the most important aspects of

00:34:18--> 00:34:56

the greatest thing that God has created actually in this creation is belief in Allah and guidance. So let's learn with Allah here describes his books as we have sent down the book to an explanation for everything and guidance and mercy and glide guidance for Muslims. And if you study the history of mankind, if you study the history of mankind with respect to all the revelations from lesson and without, or even just with respect to the time of the pulse, and um, there have been a lot of changes in mankind because of what has come to them to the teachings of Christ.

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

In particular, nowadays, we're living

00:35:00--> 00:35:22

In a civilization or the dominance of education is not an Islamic civilization. But actually this non Islamic civilization and many of its qualities are actually derived from the influence of Islamic civilization upon the renaissance in Europe. Now they talk about the Dark Ages. First of all, dark is a relative thing and where it was darker.

00:35:24--> 00:35:27

Darker is a European concept the Europeans were in the dark.

00:35:28--> 00:35:44

I remember reading a diary from Africa executive the year before the Muslims had a strong influence in Europe, and the woman was complaining she had like lice or something over her body, and this was a long time ago.

00:35:45--> 00:35:48

So the doctor recommended that she bathed

00:35:49--> 00:35:50

once a month,

00:35:52--> 00:35:57

at least once she thought this was disgusting. I have to bathe once a month.

00:35:59--> 00:36:17

That the idea of least once a week the Muslims are commanded to wash even if you don't go to Humira here, there's a command to wash you also, at least once a week, this was something completely foreign to Europe, the idea of cleanliness and walking towards was completely foreign to Europe, until the influence of the Muslims.

00:36:18--> 00:36:28

And of course, the ultimate drama from Allah subhanho wa Taala will be is entering of the believers into paradise. And Allah subhanho wa Taala again refers to that as Rama,

00:36:31--> 00:36:31

Rama de la,

00:36:33--> 00:36:34

in this another person,

00:36:35--> 00:36:42

and those people whose faces will be waiting, they'll be in the mercy of Allah to buy them forever.

00:36:44--> 00:36:49

In reality, what Allah Allah is permitted is a mercy what is forbidden is a mercy.

00:36:51--> 00:37:06

Because it means what as long as I do those things, those rules and we stick to normal circumstances as the mercy, grace and mercy is punishment, because trials is tests. All of these things actually are parts of a lesson 100 hours.

00:37:09--> 00:37:27

And as I said, His mercy extends not just to his believers, but extends to all mankind by continuing to provide for them by delaying the punishment of them, giving them the goods to this world and always opening the door for repentance, when we are when

00:37:29--> 00:37:37

these things are clear from the Quran, the force of Brahma, but if we go also to seeing what's our guide, and what the Bible says Adam has spoken about.

00:37:39--> 00:37:49

And with respect to Allah subhana wa tada the kind of place that Tyler Tyler is given his own drama, then we can understand work and important concept. This is actually

00:37:51--> 00:37:52

no I didn't say that very well.

00:37:53--> 00:37:56

He was kind of confused as to how to

00:37:57--> 00:38:02

make it clear. The problem so Selim told us mahalo mahalik a lot of the

00:38:03--> 00:38:04

Caterpie keytab he

00:38:07--> 00:38:09

will hold on and the whole

00:38:10--> 00:38:12

thing, he can remove other

00:38:17--> 00:38:17


00:38:19--> 00:38:23

for the caravan, the hobo karshi in

00:38:26--> 00:38:31

the process, Adam is telling us that when Allah subhanho wa Taala created the creation

00:38:33--> 00:38:52

he recorded with himself, he recorded with his book and recorded upon himself and put that in writing with his song that his drama His mercy, overcomes, proceeds His wrath. And this is also in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says cut them out of the coma lucky

00:38:55--> 00:39:02

enough to hear here again reminding us that idea of Rob is Rob. Elizondo data says in this verse, that your Lord

00:39:03--> 00:39:11

again what kind of movie it is, as you begin with, he says, Your Lord has written upon himself or for himself, mercy.

00:39:12--> 00:39:16

Well, listen, I know a guy that also says, Our Daddy will see will be given a shout

00:39:18--> 00:39:26

out scholarship, that my punishment will be inflicted upon whoever I will, and my mercy encompasses everything.

00:39:27--> 00:39:30

And it's also very important to keep in mind,

00:39:31--> 00:39:52

not just a belief in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But to ever despair of the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala This is how great and how boring the mercy of Allah subhana wa God is to ever despair. The Muslim is fine with that. I think you've done two points, that there's no hope for you. You're destroyed and so forth. Actually, this is

00:39:55--> 00:39:57

I took the spare bullets, none of which I was mostly

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

Melissa handle

00:40:00--> 00:40:07

Allah warns us about that. And the Quran tells us and advises us to refrain from that Allah subhanaw taala says

00:40:09--> 00:40:11

a bed in Medina set up a wall and to see him.

00:40:14--> 00:40:14


00:40:16--> 00:40:17

the gym he has in

00:40:20--> 00:40:39

Allah subhana wa tada says, See, for my slaves who have on themselves do not despair from the mercy of Allah. Allah forgives all sins He is the forgiving merciful from us and with Allah also says, In who assume the rock in a formal cafe.

00:40:40--> 00:40:49

But no one despairs from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala except for the disbelievers. And in the Hadith,

00:40:50--> 00:40:58

just read you the part that discusses the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah and the prophet SAW Selim said, know yarraman Capital man the line,

00:41:03--> 00:41:12

that is the disfavour knew what Allah subhanho wa Taala has a mercy that no one would ever despair of his

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


00:41:15--> 00:41:29

So this is the mercy of almost 100 Girish that Allah subhanaw taala is reminding us of every time we say Bismillah R Rahman r him, every time we recycle, but there are after mentioning his little Bo, I mean,

00:41:32--> 00:41:42

and not only that, there is also some implications for our own behavior and our own actions. There is a statement which is supposedly hiding from them, which is

00:41:43--> 00:41:43


00:41:45--> 00:41:50

cultivate in yourself, the behavior or the virtues of a listing on Amazon are the characteristics.

00:41:52--> 00:42:06

So some people take this statement, and they say, so you look at the names of Allah subhanaw taala. And you try to emulate those names or if Allah subhana wa Tada, for example, is 100 means you should be merciful.

00:42:07--> 00:42:12

Obviously, that's not going to work for all of our listeners, that it'll pull your luggage.

00:42:14--> 00:42:28

And actually, this is not that heavy, whatsoever. This statement is not on an annual collection of petty, you will find in some of the later books of upgrade and so forth. However, with respect the law, with respect to law, we know that

00:42:29--> 00:42:36

between human beings is something beloved to all of this, we know, we're not going from the fact that

00:42:37--> 00:42:58

we should be also having but we know from different hobbies, that this is something beloved to Allah subhanaw taala. So we should remember that Allah subhanho wa Taala is offline, we should always remember that he was beloved to him. And so therefore, we should also try to be merciful kind, generous in all of the different aspects that encompasses.

00:42:59--> 00:43:03

So for example, the politician and said lawyer have a low malaria.

00:43:06--> 00:43:14

The politician said, that Allah subhanho wa Taala, will not show mercy to the one who does not show mercy to the people.

00:43:15--> 00:43:23

In another case, or in the process of him kissing one of his grandson's, there was a person with him. I believe a better one, but I'm not sure.

00:43:24--> 00:43:29

There was a person with him who said that he has 10 children, and he's never kissed any of them.

00:43:30--> 00:43:42

And he doesn't have that feeling of compassion and mercy even for his own children. So he said he has potentially never kissed any of them. promises that have looked at him and said, Man, no, you're humble, you're

00:43:43--> 00:43:46

the one who does not show mercy will not be shown mercy.

00:43:48--> 00:43:54

So as you see from this Mercy is a quality of human beings that is beloved to Allah.

00:43:55--> 00:44:22

So we should always keep in mind his mercy. The fact that he is Rahman, you should never despair from inshallah, benefiting from his mercy. And of course, we know that as you go through our life, we are benefiting from his robia and his mercy in every moment of our life. But especially we should be seeking that special mercy that Alison had and what God will bestow upon the believers and bestows upon them in this life and and hereafter

00:44:23--> 00:44:42

and also handle it God makes it clear what is the key to that special must? The key to life is very clear. It is by believing in Him by obeying Him by submitting to him in the proper fashion. Alyssa handwerker Allah describes the believers as those people who have a job and

00:44:45--> 00:44:53

they are the people who are hoping for the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada and they are fearing the punishment of Allah.

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

But Allah subhana wa gile in many places in the Quran gives us the key. How will you get there?

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


00:45:02--> 00:45:12

in both this life in the hereafter. And as I said, the key is to obey Allah subhanho wa Taala in the proper manner. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, for example, the Lotus Sutra

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

for hameau

00:45:15--> 00:45:22

obey Allah and the messenger, so that you may attain mercy, the contaminants in lahoma waterproof,

00:45:24--> 00:45:25

cuckoo, cuckoo.

00:45:27--> 00:45:40

This is a blesseth book that we have revealed, so, follow it and have, so, that you may or famous or famous Allah wa To recap, Warfield also plan to

00:45:41--> 00:45:48

establish the slot gives us a cat, obey the messenger So, that you may obtain mercy

00:45:50--> 00:45:57

in delay, or even sing the verse 11 $100 is close to those who do.

00:45:59--> 00:46:08

So, this is the key to getting that special or amount from Allah subhana wa tada that we spoke about with God as we said before all of his Christian

00:46:09--> 00:46:26

whether believers unbelievers, inanimate objects, random objects, animals, whatever, but we are talking about the special amount that we hope to get from Allah subhana wa Taala. And the key to that is by inshallah, obeying Allah subhana wa tada and obeying the messenger.

00:46:28--> 00:46:33

And another point, by the way of globaldata mean coming, just before Rahman Rahim, Allah Allah,

00:46:34--> 00:46:57

Allah Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala, His grace, as we said, of all the creation, he nourishes she sustains, he cherishes them, he provides for them. And this, by the way, is a sign or an indication that Allah subhanaw taala must have sent religious or spiritual guidance to

00:46:59--> 00:47:02

those people, for example, who, when they think about God,

00:47:03--> 00:47:16

and obviously I'm talking about numbers, and you can find many non Muslims who, when they think about God, they accept the idea that there's a supreme being, and there's a God. And they accept the idea that he is a merciful, loving God.

00:47:18--> 00:47:24

And then at the same time, they reject the idea that there has been a guidance coming from God that we should call.

00:47:26--> 00:47:33

It is very strange to conceive of Allah subhanho wa Taala as supplying everything that a human being needs,

00:47:34--> 00:47:40

all the physical things that a human being needs, for not meeting his spiritual needs.

00:47:41--> 00:47:50

And people are realizing more and more, the spiritual needs are probably much more important than the physical needs. If you're rich, you can buy the physical things, right, the worldly things.

00:47:52--> 00:47:54

They used to say, happiness can't buy money.

00:47:57--> 00:47:58

Because it's usually the other way around.

00:48:00--> 00:48:02

But they say Money can't buy happiness.

00:48:03--> 00:48:18

Because you know, these physical things are not necessarily going to satisfy you. Because you must have been created in a certain way. And as long as you know, doesn't know all of a sudden ricotta doesn't know your Lord doesn't know his creator, they will always be avoided.

00:48:20--> 00:48:42

So to conceive of durable as giving everything that the human being needs to physically nourish himself to physically sustain himself, and to completely ignore the spiritual side of human being, this is actually a very deficient to leave about a lesson without above the Lord, whatever you want to call,

00:48:43--> 00:48:53

to strictly be accurate, that he is Ramana, you believe that he's most of all. So he's provided all these things for you. And so there's not only a problem, and

00:48:54--> 00:49:06

then why did he leave out the most important thing that human being needs in this life, that is the thing that will satisfy his spiritual needs, is non physical. So based on these two verses,

00:49:09--> 00:49:39

many of our orlimar has stated that this is a clear indication, not a direct indication, but a clear implicit indication that our lesson and what God has sent guidance, has sent books, has sent messengers, so that all of the needs of mankind Well, I mean, he didn't just fulfill their physical needs to fulfill all of their needs, by giving them what they need physically in this dunya and also by giving them what they need spiritually.

00:49:42--> 00:49:59

So the question is about how do you reconcile the fact that we should be miserable or less rather without as miserable? And at the same time, the Shinya has asked us to show displeasure for those who transgress the limits, and not to treat for examples of harassing evildoers the same way

00:50:00--> 00:50:39

To treat those people who look to us as technicians, and so forth, but this goes back to the example that's over here. What do you mean by mercy? Hey, if your brother in Islam, for example, is doing something wrong, transgressing the limits, he mean by that he's committing sins, right? So, you actually have three choices. You don't say anything. Or you encourage him and show him that everything's okay with you or you're fine. You do those things, and I'll still teach you the best way possible. Or you show your displeasure. Which one is the mercy and reality? Again, don't look at things at a superficial level. The real Mercy is that you showing your displeasure, and so that

00:50:39--> 00:51:12

inshallah he will change his ways before it's true. Because if you don't, if you don't show your displeasure, he will continue his way. You know, if you see a dog out in the middle of the street, and there's a car coming, you might scream at the dog or the car or the driver or something. But if you see someone born to the fire, perhaps, you know, you see him committing these sins displeases Allah subhanaw taala. That same act of mercy that led you scream out for the dog, that same feeling of mercy should make you treat this person in the proper way. Now, what is the proper way exactly how to treat them.

00:51:14--> 00:51:15

And books have been written, I won't

00:51:16--> 00:51:24

get into that. But the real Mercy is not to encourage them to do wrong not to accept it, but to try to find some way to change it.

00:51:25--> 00:51:28

So there's no conflict between that and
