What a shadow Allah in illallah wa the hula Cherie color wash hadoo Anna Mohammed Abdo Rasulo,
all praises due to Allah, we praise Him and seek his assistance. We seek refuge with Allah from the evil within ourselves and from the evil of our deeds. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can misguide him, yet whomever He allows to go straight and uncon guide him and I bear witness that there is no God worthy of worship except Allah alone. He has no partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and His messenger.

He will direct you to the righteous good deeds and will forgive your sins and whomsoever obey is Allah and His messenger. He has indeed achieved a great achievement and my bad for inner circle Hadith tabula rasa had you had you Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with Sharla more data to have a coup d'etat in Vida Wakulla without in Bala were closed out and for now, Brothers and Sisters in Islam. Today we're going to speak about the name and the attributes of Allah azza wa jal of Allah Azza wa sallam and just in the language
something that is wasa would indicate that it is wide or expanse or spacious. That is what was that would mean in the language. And this is also how Allah subhanaw taala sometimes used it in the Quran. In surah Nisa, the angels will ask the people on
The Day of Judgment who are being oppressed in a land LM token or doula he was say Alton for two hydrophobia was not Allah's Earth spacious was spacious, so that you would travel or emigrate to different parts.
And in total ankle boot, same usage, Allah's region says Yeah, buddy Alladhina amanu in out of the World Car tune for AI fr a boon, all my servants who have believed, indeed my earth is wide, sir spacious, so worship Me alone. So we see from the meaning of the word, we get this image of something wide, something large, something huge. And it's the same word that used to refer to having a lot of wealth when someone has a lot of wealth. And when when Israel asked for a leader, and they were sent to loot as their leader, then they objected to his leadership, because they argued he didn't have wealth. Allah subhanaw taala. And this was the sort of Al Baqarah says what they said
when I'm you SATA middleman, SA, middleman malice wealth sa from the same root as was here. So when describing one that has much wealth, it's using the same route to show a lot of wealth. Similarly in spirit and know what utterly old fugly mm income was. So those of you who have a lot of wealth should not swear to not give money to the poor, something that's why sell it used to show a lot of wealth. And the exact opposite in the Quran shows little wealth in Surah Al Fajr were unmasked either amatola Who for cada Allah here is Kehoe. So if Allah tests someone in Titans Khedira anybody here and that's why one of the explanations of later to cuddle because the earth becomes tight on
little cuddle because in the authentic hadith, and maybe so Salam indicated that the number of angels on earth on that night will be equal to the number of pebbles on Earth. So the earth is packed so it's tight. So cutter the exact opposite of wasa here. That's why also for us it he said um, where the Nguni is the hubba mahal they bought for one and Len Nakamura, Allah Jonnie la new de la, so tight, expands to show a lot of wealth. Now, we know what the word means now in the Arabic language, but what does it mean when Allah subhanaw taala uses this word and when Allah Subhana Allah uses this word to describe himself or this is his attribute that he is, sir.
And what is beautiful is that Allah subhanaw taala did not did not specify what kind was there in what but just left it in general that he is l was here. So it was left open. So that means Allah subhanaw taala is worse or or Rama is wha said in His mercy. Allah azza wa jal is worse, much worse, in his forgiveness was, was in his knowledge, was there another man was in his magnificence in his greatness. So the scholars said and was a lady was here at Sephora to who was a smart or who could reshape the worst is the one who is attributes and descriptions encompass everything. The Scholars say that every attribute and every description we might have will have a limit, it will have an end,
but with Allah subhanaw taala by being Anwar said, None of his descriptions none of his attributes have a limit. So they're limitless, they have no limits. So Allah subhanaw taala is well said Rama in Sultan najem. Allah azza wa jal says in Nara burqa was your role model Fira? Indeed your Lord is was in forgiveness. So what would that mean? Then? We said when you're Wasa, there is no limit. So then it's saying there is no limit to the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa taala. So a question then, is there any sin that Allah azza wa jal will never forgive?
And the answer is no. Even shirk, if you repent from it, it will be forgiven, there is no sin ever, that Allah subhanaw taala will not forgive, because Allah azza wa jal is worse or ullmark. Pharaoh, he can there is no limit. Not only that is there a number of time you can repent from something a number of times and then you reach the limit the maximum number, you repent only 5000 times but no more, you can repent from something 500,000 times there is no limit to the number and there is no limit to the type of sin that Allah Subhana Allah will forgive and that shows us again, limitless worse it will not Vera there is no limit to the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no
limit to the number of times you can repeat repentance or keep repenting from
A sin and what kind of sin you can repent from.
But every human being has a limit. Even if you ask someone for something that's very easy for them to do, and they want to do it for you. But ask them for the simple task 100 times what will happen? Even the friendliest person, ask him to do something simple for you 100 times that number, what will happen? They will become angered with you, and they will become frustrated immediately and they will refuse to do it because you ask them too many times. You ask them 100 times, but Allah subhanaw taala there is no limit to his attributes. And that's why you keep asking Allah azza wa jal, you can ask Allah azza wa jal a million times, and not only will he never be upset with you because he has
no limits. But Allah subhanaw taala is unlike anyone and anything we've ever heard of, where if you don't ask Allah azza wa jal, he is so generous that if you don't ask him, he becomes angered with you. And this is in Muslim, Imam Muhammad Narrated by Abu Huraira. And maybe so Salam said that men Muslim Yes, Allah yo verbally, whoever doesn't ask Allah Allah will be angry with them, angered with them. So Far be it from Allah Subhana Allah to be angry with someone for constantly asking that is the essence of our relationship with Allah azza wa jal, we are constantly asking Allah subhanho wa taala. So then what will be the effect of knowing that your Lord Allah Allah is worse your own
Mahavira will be the effect in my life in knowing this information. Now, if I know that Allah subhanaw taala there is no limit to his forgiveness. I will never feel too dirty to come back to Allah subhanaw taala or to unworthy to put my hands up and make dua to Allah azza wa jal or talk to him for a long periods of time. I will always feel that I can repent to Allah azza wa jal rushed to Allah azza wa jal asking for forgiveness because he is worse are among Farah. And I will never feel that I am too hopeless or too far gone to ever come back to Allah subhanaw taala this is just from the effect of knowing that Allah Israel is awash in one of his attributes.
And Allah azza wa jal also says in the Quran, war Rama T was the art Kula che, and my Rama encompasses everything. So what would be the effects of knowing this description of Allah? subhanaw taala? And how would that affect my relationship with Allah as union and my repentance and Toba to Allah subhanaw taala. And that's why the Scholars who understood this, they had immense hope and Allah azza wa jal, the great scholars to find a thorough him Allah. He said, If on the Day of Judgment, my mother comes to me and says, I will judge you Yeah, Sophia, I will judge you. I will tell her no, I would rather Allah because he is more merciful upon me than you are. Every single one
of us right now, we know for sure. If Allah subhanaw taala made our mothers judge us on the Day of Judgment, our mothers will take us to Agenda.
But those who understand Allah subhanaw taala, they know that he is more merciful upon us than our own mothers. And the huge difference is that our mothers they have a limit, they have a limit for how much they can tolerate of our sins of our mistakes. And Allah subhanaw taala has no limit for his forgiveness and no limit for His mercy. So which one would you rather choose? And it makes perfect sense why so if you're under 30, would rather Allah azza wa jal judge him over his own dear sweet mother?
So this is applying a noir set to the mother Farah to the Rama of Allah subhanaw taala. You also and Allah azza wa jal will also attach it to giving risk and risk brothers and sisters is whatever my you endeavor, be He for whom risk whatever you benefit from his risk. We always tend to think of risk as money. Whatever you can benefit from is risk. Courage is risk. Taqwa is risk, good manners, risk, anything you benefit from. So specifically here we're looking at wealth we're looking at provision. Allah azza wa jal says in Surah Al Emraan.
Cole in Alfred Libya dilla you t him Aisha Walla, who was urine, Eileen, Allah is wasa and I name all knowing. In Surah Noor Allah azza wa jal says iya kunafa Cara yovani him Allah hoomin fogli wala Who was your own? I mean, if they be poor, Allah will enrich them from His bounties and Allah is wise and knowledgeable. So an interesting question here and the scholars say when it comes to provision and risk, and Allah Azza Ghana being Lhasa it means that Allah subhanaw taala is worse your cousin, Yanni Allah azza wa jal, his supplies what is with Allah azza wa jal also limitless and endless
And that's why in the Hadith, Allah azza wa jal and the huzzah Hadith ALLAH SubhanA, Allah said that if the ins and the jinn and every human being ever created ever, and every Jinn ever created if they were together on one plane, and every single one of them asked Allah subhanaw taala of everything they could possibly want, and possibly imagine, that would not decrease from the provision of Allah azza wa jal, so much as when you dip a needle into the ocean, whatever little amount of water is picked up by that needle, what does that decrease from the water of the ocean? It would even less so affect the provision of Allah subhanaw taala.
So then, how does this affect me when I know that Allah subhanaw taala is worse, when it comes to giving risk? That means then I will completely have trust in Allah subhanaw taala I will never fear poverty or being thrown out in the street, I will be confident that Allah subhanaw taala will give me because Allah was no limits, is the one that's giving me. So therefore then I will never lie or cheat in business. I would never have to lie in my resume or in the job application or do anything to get an extra dollar because I know and I believe Allah azza wa jal is Allah when it comes to giving me provision.
And so these are practical effects of what would happen to us. If we completely truly believed and understood this name of Allah subhanaw taala Allah Azza Akula cola was taught for Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah commanded me to know first row Fairphone Mr Vereen ask Allah Subhana Allah for his forgiveness, those who ask for his forgiveness should prosper?
And hamdulillah Hara Bella Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah hit I mean one other early, he was happy to hear Jermaine. We noticed that in the verses we we mentioned, of risk of provision, Allah subhanaw taala refer to himself and described himself as being worse Yeah. And Eileen, and worse and the Quran is usually followed by Aileen but only once in the Quran is followed by Hakeem. But why is it usually followed by Aileen the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa taala. And what is the relationship between Allah subhanaw taala reminding you of His unlimited knowledge, when he's mentioning provision for you specifically? And the scholars mentioned a number of things. Number one, Allah
Subhana Allah is telling you that he is aware of your good intentions. And that is something very important when it comes to being linked to your risk, your provision, your wealth, your intentions, Allah azza wa jal is telling you that he's very knowledgeable, full, full aware, fully aware of what your intentions are, because based on your intentions, Allah azza wa jal will decide to provide for you or not to give you because what do you intend to do with what Allah is going to give you? Yeah, and if Allah azza wa jal is going to give someone wealth and this person intends nothing but pure evil. Allah azza wa jal is full knowledge of their intention gives leads to the decision to not give
this person well, so it doesn't corrupt him so it doesn't go astray. And on this issue, brothers and sisters, having good intention with Allah subhanaw taala is it pertains to a risk, it's something of great importance. One of the.he said he was traveling at hudge with a extremely wealthy businessman, man in the multi millions. So I asked him, What is the secret to your wealth? And the man said, I always have good intention with Allah azza wa jal. So he didn't understand what does that mean? What do you mean? You have good intention with Allah azza wa jal? He says, I'll tell you my story. I had a small chicken farm. It was a very small one I couldn't produce much. But Condor Allah, some virus
some disease came and afflicted every chicken in every farm in that region. And every chicken died, all the farms had zero. And I was the only farm in that region that had that had chicken. So the the chicken was being sold for five reels, and I could have sold each one for 25 reels for 30 reels and people would buy it because there was no other option. I completely monopolize the market. He says but I said to Allah azza wa jal Ya Allah, my only intention is to feed your servants. And I was selling the chicken for just six reals, he just raised it one reason. My only intention is to feed your servants. He said. Then the farm started growing and my business started growing and then he
swears by Allah he says, well, Allah He, I don't know I didn't know where money is coming from just money would be coming at me from all angles and I had no clue where it was coming from. But from that point on, anytime I wanted a business endeavor or venture or anything involving money, I always had a good clean intention with Allah azza wa jal. So Allah subhanaw taala when he mentioned risk and the Quran is telling you about his knowledge because he knows your intent.
In addition, and that will determine what you will get and how much you will get. Also it will determine also Allah Israel is knowledgeable and knows how you will use that provision, whatever it is. So that's why Allah is reminding you of his knowledge because he knows you will use it well, he will give you he knows you will use it poorly, he won't give you and Allah subhanaw taala also because he has perfect knowledge, he knows what harm may come to you. And that's why mentioning the knowledge when it comes to this, because Allah Subhana Allah knows that this risk will bring you harm, then he will not give it to you. But he mentioned his knowledge so that you can have trust in
his decision as it relates to your your recipe or provision your income. The second thing so what does it mean for me to know that Allah subhanaw taala is in worse or worse or an ally? What does it mean for me? And how does that impact my life? One I would definitely trust the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala trust the decisions that Allah Subhana Allah makes for me or the decrees of Allah, trust the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala and trust the rulings of Allah azza wa jal Yanni Allah azza wa jal is the one who is has wasat. And Eileen, yeah, I need limitless knowledge. So wouldn't it make complete sense then for me to completely trust the rulings of Allah azza wa jal? And with that
a reminder brothers and sisters, we're living in the age of people questioning Allah subhanaw taala as wisdom, but you're questioning the wisdom of Alaska I need the one who has limitless knowledge. How would it make sense for us to question his wisdom to question his rulings to question his Sharia and that's what I'm sort of Nyssa Allah subhanaw taala says, well, can Allahu wa Seon Hakima when it comes to his ACHEMA his wisdom was that there would be no use and no sense for you to try to challenge and to try to question the wisdom of one that is was there in wisdom?
The last thing we want to take from this football brothers and sisters,
have you ever tried to live with the name of Allah azza wa jal Elwha. And what does it mean to live with the name of Allah and wasa? Yeah, I need to take a month or a few weeks, where you are constantly aware of this name and you're using it in your DUA as you communicate and ask Allah subhanaw taala you use this name? Oh Allah, I asked you and your Aloha sir. And then state what you want, live with this name for a while. And there are reports of those who for a while just went with this name. We've lived with Allah for we will live with a Rahmani Raheem a result. These are the common names. But if you want to take something from this, live with the name of Allah Subhana Allah
Allah wa Sarah for a while, use it constantly in your DUA and as you call upon Allah subhanaw taala and you will see for your own self, what will happen in your life Inshallah, with that we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us of those who hear the truth as clear truth and follow the best of it, and to make us of those who recognize falsehood as clear falsehood and abstain from it.
