Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim
Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Maria Camila
he was a busy woman in Korea we heard he was telling me swimming at a meeting
on Long Island and I thought, once I had the Marlin
was what I'd even shot the health plan was
already known about he was looking at HTML
which I don't know even yesterday I told the owner, sir,
I mean, without
any commotion at why what I looked at
last week we went through an introduction on
The Most Beautiful Names of Allah subhanho wa taala. Some important rules and guidelines that we should be aware of, when talking about the names of Allah subhanahu wa.
Then we'll just one last thing that I want to add to that.
And that will be related to you know, pretty much everything that we will be talking about when we go through the various themes of the loss of her daughter, and that is using the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala
there are certain things that we can use
to call upon Allah subhanho wa Taala whenever we want to make our DUA
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught us different things that we can use that we can mention.
When we make our
remember the more of the lanes are for but what else can we use?
To call upon a loss of shadow.
besides his names,
what else can we use to call upon Allah subhanho wa Taala
your good deeds? So, you did a good deed?
You say Oh Allah, I did this such a such good deed you mentioned hoping that by me mentioning this critique, Allah will answer and it's certainly
So among the things that we can use are the names of Allah subhanahu whatever
the names of Allah subhana wa Tada we can use them as we will see in sha Allah, okay. So
when you want to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for forgiveness, then you call upon Allah with that name
alludes to the forgiveness, the attribute of Allah being or forgiving. You say yeah, for
the one who is most forgiving, forgiving myself.
the most merciful, have mercy upon me, and so on and so forth.
However, an important thing to mention here is that
we use these names in general,
we use the names of Allah subhanaw taala. In general, when we're making our dua
as far as specifically stating, that a person should
you know, if he has such a such problem, he should mention this particular name of Allah, such a such time is like 99 times or 100 times.
There is no evidence for that,
from the prophets of Allah,
nor any of his companions.
It's when you have certain books that have been
compiled, the names of Allah subhanho wa taala. And with each name and mentions, if you have such a such problem, such as illness, sickness, whatever it be, then mention this name and mention it this many times and you'll be cured and your problem will be
resolved and so on so forth.
None of those have any backing from no verse of the Quran nor in Hadith of the Prophet or seller, nor any
Evidence for any of the companions that they did any of that. And so we use these names of Allah subhanahu Attallah, in general, without specifying it. So when we specify something
and we include it in our data, and it becomes a part of our data.
If it does not have precedence, from Gopuram, or from the sooner we're at least from some of the components, then this data that is termed as a data
it is called
a big innovation in the
process also warned us from innovating in the deep
end so today we're gonna start with some of the names of Allah subhanahu, WA Tada.
And over the coming weeks and shower, every week, we'll take different names of the loss of water, talking about them, mentioning their meanings, and then talking about how
what these names teach us
what these particular names teach us
from the meanings and how we can use them in our lives.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala has told us
has informed us of many of his names and attributes.
But the question is, is there
one mean that is vini?
the greatest name?
And if so, what is it?
First of all, is there
one meme that is considered the greatest and the most superior? Of the last names?
Is there Yes, and if so, what is it
there's actually a difference of opinion among the scholars. And so, there are some scholars have said that there is no such thing
that is more superior because they said that all of the last names are Greek and special.
And we should not tribute superiority to one name or over the other
until all of the last names are superior.
When you learn a snap and snap to or below the most beautiful things, without exception, they are all beautiful, they are all superior.
However, the majority of the scholars they said that there is one specialty
and that is based
on a hadith
he says that he was with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam once he was sitting with him
and there was a man
who was praying he saw
that he may do
you may do to Allah, He said along there in the center be an L Et Al Hamdulillah Illa in the MTL manner, video similar to the other gentleman with a Claudia Hayata.
So he called upon a while with these
So the profit so we want to send them SIP to NS look at the our Wahhabis Nihill Aolong.
And they either do a Joby or jab or they're suited to be here.
The Prophet sallallahu sallam said, first of all, the meaning of the draft, he said,
Oh Allah, this man, he said, Oh Allah, I asked you by virtue of the fact that all praise is due to
there is no
God besides me. And you have no partner or associate. You are the restore the Originator of the heavens and earth, the Possessor of Majesty and Honor.
Yeah, yeah for you, the EverLiving, the Sustainer.
So, the prophet so, he heard this, he said, that this man has asked a law by his greatest name,
by which if he is called upon, he answers and if he is asked by this name, he gives.
So here the Prophet sallallahu neosurf specifically said that this man called upon a law by his greatest name, proving that war does have
a name which is considered the greatest the most superior in another
similar to this,
from a different different Sahabi radar will be a lot higher. He says that the Prophet saw and heard a man saying along the in the unka in the ash hidden in Mecca into LA, LA
Sana many of you let me actually level Khufu on
this man said all I ask you, by virtue of the fact the idea is that you are a law, there is no God, but you, you are the eternal refuge, who neither begets nor is born, nor is there to him any equivalent.
So, the Russell cinema he heard this, he said,
he said to the man, you have indeed, asked Allah by the name, which if he is asked by he gives in fee is called upon he answers.
So, the question here is, what is that name?
So, now we've
answered the question, Does ova have
a name that is considered the greatest, the most superior? The answer is yes, because the prophets of Allah and Allah affirm that, but now, the question is, what is that?
And this is where the scholars they different and so, it has been
the the one who wrote the famous commentary for Soviet Ohio
he lists 14 different views of the scholars concerning what does that mean?
So, there are 14 different opinions
and so, perhaps the most,
you know, correct view out of all of them
is that that was chosen by the majority of scholars and that is, as
the brothers answered, that that name of Allah, which is considered the greatest, the most superior is Allah,
it is Allah.
So, that is because this name it encompasses all the other names and attributes of Allah
and it is the name that was never given to anyone other than Allah.
what further proves that you know, this is the greatest thing of Allah
first of all, in those two headings are mentioned in both of them
the first name that was mentioned by that man, when he made that to
what was the very first thing it was all
he said, What did he say he said I asked you over
in the first heavy piece along let me spell Luca
the MD NACA
to reset along at Oklahoma
refers to the name Allah
well also proves it is the fact that no other name has been mentioned
in the Quran as much as this name
so, if we were to actually go back to the program and
you know research how many times Allah has been mentioned, it has been mentioned approximately 2700 times.
No other name has been mentioned as much.
No other name even comes close to that number.
all the other mediums of law are identified by this name.
when you want to refer to Allah has different things, what do you say? You say?
The name of Allah and adding for example,
you say the name of Allah and
from say, Allah has mean or Ratna.
So you're identifying a lot
by these different names, but you refer to him a lot. You don't say the opposite you don't say for example.
You don't say for example, la I leave the name of La
recommends me from law.
So all the needs of a law go back to refer to
the majority of the do as in the firm
are also referred to by the state
in the cost of that brought that.
Also, it is the name of Allah, that Allah chose
to be in the greatest freeze that a person can ever utter, which is what?
The caliber of a Toshi the shahada,
Allah chose for this name to be
in the shahada
how many times twice
in both parts of the Shahada.
So when it comes
to belief in Allah right, testify the witness should will let the law have been the law wa was
the Messenger of Allah, He didn't say, the Messenger of ohana.
So in both instances,
Allah uses this word. And this is a really strange person can ever butter it is the phrase that brings a person into
into the fold of Islam, it is the phrase it is the it is the meaning of the shahada that if a person denies or does anything to nullify it takes them out of Islam.
So, what does that mean?
Allah actually comes from Isla
So, ILA is actually another of the last names l era.
But, when we put it together the Ella with ILA, when we put it together, it becomes
a separate name
and that is a lot
and so, anything that whenever we address in the Arabic language,
it makes a word to become well,
So, you say for example,
you say for example, had MSG, this is a masjid
but when you add the LCR and you say msgid
It becomes domestic it's no longer a masjid it is the master your specificity you basically specify
the name Omar comes from Isla
and below refers to himself and also by
he learned why
your ILA So, what is it? What is the meaning of Islam basically means
a deity or one who is worshipped
he basically means one who is worshipped
so at least it means God
it's all of us have had a whole ton of says here it's worth about
verse 163, what ILA who Poom Isla who fit
your God is only one God
La ilaha illa Rahim there is no God except here.
The most compassionate, the Most Merciful.
And this is what we also find in the Shahada. When we say lab the
there is no lab.
Ila, there is no God.
Illa Allah except.
So it basically means God or the one who is worshipped.
It also was a parent notices his word to Toba, verse 31. Well, now only Illa Leah Buddha
they have not been commanded to worship except one god
So this is where the name Allah comes from.
It comes from
Isla and Illa means
the one who is worshipped
the one who is worshipped
so that's why
the disbelievers of Koresh when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to them with Islam,
and came to them until he'd,
what did they say?
They have their false gods.
And they couldn't understand this concept of one God.
So they said a job and he had Isla Wahida.
In the huddle,
they said Has he made the area?
Early hype is the pool of what
They said Has he made that earlier, the gods era rafidah into one God.
This indeed is something strange for them. It was something strange, they couldn't understand it. Not that they did not recognize one.
One Creator, one supreme being.
that there is only one Creator who created
who is in control of everything.
They did not deny.
They did not deny that there exists such a beam.
But their problem was
their problem was
there the problem was.
Does that one being that one Creator? Does he deserve worship alone?
can he direct our iba to others? So for them, they believed that it was okay
to worship multiple gods,
multiple objects of worship,
to era needs and objects of worship, something that is worship.
And they believed that
it was okay to worship anything. So when the Prophet SAW,
what did he come to teach that? Did he come to teach them? That?
You know, there's only one Creator who created everything who
provides for you?
Who controls everything?
you know, he is the only creator?
Is that it? No, that was not the message of the Prophet so well, I didn't say nor was the message of any of the prophets beforehand. But rather all of their, all the prophets Their message was
that there's only one God who deserves to be worshipped.
There's only one God who deserves to be worshipped.
And that is
so what is special and unique about this name Allah.
First of all, it is the source of all of Allah's names and attributes.
As all other names or attributes are attributed to this day, as we mentioned,
Allah subhanho wa taala. And when he talks about his names,
what is he said?
When he laughs He smiled.
To whom, to Allah belongs the most beautiful things.
the most beautiful things there are to room to Allah so Allah used his name
to refer to all of these names.
a list of Allah's names in Accra that come in one place.
Where are they which Surah
Approximately 15 names or 17 names that come together
in surah and hash at the end of sewer treasure. How does it begin? Who won't La?
La de la
who Allah. So Allah begins
mentioning his names by this name, that He is Allah. And then he mentioned his other names. So basically all the names and attributes
that's what's unique about this name. The second thing that is unique about this name
is that we cannot drop the LF now
when we are making to
so when you call upon Allah
by His names, and you say, yeah,
oh, Allah, for example. You say, Oh, yeah, oh
he's other names.
What do we do?
We, we dropped me flat with all of the other names.
So for example, it is Aruna
V Raha unlawful v.
And harder the Creator. But when we are making Lana and we say, yeah.
We don't say yeah, or
we don't say, yeah.
We have to drop that.
So we say yeah,
And so on and so forth.
It's only with a worsening a lot that we cannot drop that if we do that, then it becomes another way which name is up
and that is also one of the last names
so what becomes if you drop the atomic becomes yet EDA.
And it's no longer
30 What's unique about this mean is that all the do has
and all the various of the color that we have been taught have been associated with this name and not any other way.
the test be what do we say? So hello
to Hamid and Hello, Linda.
There's been a long backlog
better to start with a lot Bismillah in elementary
And even in the other version of it, what is it about who's a biller? SME line machine approach still a lot comes first. So all of the various car into has that we have
the dimension this specifically instead of any other names.
the most beloved name to Allah is which name
which name is the most beloved to Allah.
I don't need a last names are talking about
calling, naming somebody with an email
address after the Prophet sallahu.
Wa Allah, the Most Beloved of names to Allah are our doula and under here
so this name of Allah without a doubt, without a doubt is a very very unique thing. It is the greatest of all last names there is no other name more greater. That means
finally, what does this mean teach us
what is the you know?
What is the fruit that we
we gained from it?
for learning about this mean, Allah
firstly, what we learned is that the most important thing about Allah
that is, the most important thing about him is identifying him as the one who deserves to be worshipped.
That's all what did not choose any other name, or any other attribute
for his greatest name,
that describes his own here
is your rudia.
There's nothing else more important to a lot besides that.
Contest why, as we mentioned, that's why the prophets and the messengers were sent about.
This was the very thing that resulted in the conflict between the prophets and their people, nothing else. Yes, there were other issues. But this was the primary issue of conflict.
The battles that took place between the Prophet so well, it was him and his people was over, was over this. As long as we accepted this,
everything else would be secondary.
It was this, that Allah sent each other to a prophet
to convey to his people,
the number one thing
that ALLAH SubhanA wa,
is the only one deserving of worship.
So do not worship others besides, that's why the greatest sin that a person can commit your ship.
it goes against this very fundamental thing that the law said the Prophets and Messengers for.
It's all we learned that
Allah chose this name for himself, which this is its meaning. Because there's nothing more important
about Allah then to identify him as the one the one who deserves to be worshipped. The second thing that we learn from this meme is the importance of calling upon Allah with this name.
If this is the Greatest Name of Allah, and there's no doubt that we should
refer to the name of MiG tau
by either saying, Yeah, Allah, or Allahumma,
which basically means the same thing.
That's where the majority of the Duels of the council
striking this way that he talks.
Now, how about
the DUA that was made by that man?
The Prophet sallallahu sallam said,
you know, indeed, he called upon a lot but the greatest thing
that he could ever be called upon that if he is called upon on this day, he'll answer it.
And so to be on the safe side, if you
if you want your drive to be accepted,
dare to be on the safe side, use those words that were used in.
So that then when the principles haven't heard him, he obviously heard him referred to Allah in such a winner that he said this.
So it's good if we memorize that to
the different wordings and so he said, Oh, well, he spent at the end at your health law, in a nap with your son allottee one Oh, yeah, in general with the chroma philia.
among the things that we've learned from this thing is
that there is no equivalent
to this meaning of law.
There is no equivalent to it is the most superior of Alaskans. Therefore, there is nothing that is equivalent to
when Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to introduce himself to new Saudis. He was just
move Saudi SmartClean to the mountain
He conversed with Allah.
Allah spoke to him and said
he many Allah
so there is no equivalent to this name
if we understand that there's no equivalent to the same then how about
referring to Allah as God?
Are we allowed to refer to Allah and translate his name as God?
So you say that the meaning of law is God, the translation of Allah is God
Okay, so now to translate and you're saying that Allah means God
yes, it means God. As we said, it means something that is worship a deity.
But when we say Oh Allah,
we should leave it as Allah,
we should leave it as Allah.
So God is not the equivalent for Allah. Nor is V God, we shouldn't say V God. And say this means ALLAH.
So the means all of us have heard of hookah,
bar, as Allah mentioned them in the
in the Arabic language, and they should stand up,
they should stand up.
if we are
trying to introduce the idea of who Allah is,
to someone who's not familiar with who Allah is,
like normal cells,
the here we can use the term God, if they've never heard of Allah, where they don't know what the law means.
So here we can see,
you know, the law is God, as you are familiar with copper.
So in your language, and in your
upbringing, you've understood that there is a supreme being the creator created everything.
And, and you refer to him as God.
For us, we refer to him as Allah.
Once they understand that, don't fall back to using God.
Stick to Allah.
So that's why it's best not to use God even in transitions. Unfortunately, there are many translations out there that use God and they replace it with Allah wherever was mentioned in
it. So even if you're talking to Donaldsons, even if you were to
give them a translation of the Quran
choose a transaction that defines who Allah is maybe in the beginning, maybe in the football,
it defines what we mean by Allah.
So that, you know, they understand that after that, wherever it was means Metro, they understand, you know, what is being referred to here.
And that goes with any other languages, not just English or any other language.
There is no equivalent for the need for law.
There is no equivalent for the name of Allah.
But again, if you want to
introduce the idea of who Allah is, and the person you're speaking to, does not understand except by using something from their language, use that.
But don't stick to that thereafter
and allows us
So today, we cover two of the names of Allah, what were they
so the other name that we cover today is an era. So era means God
And when you say Elpida it means de la
Yeah, it's that that is
and even the other one is mentioned in the books of the Sonia.
Tell me the MSRP.
It's not mentioned on site, but it's mentioned indoors
so Charlotte next week we'll move on to a last name
and some other names and what we'll try to do is we'll try to group the names that are basically that allude to the same attribute, just like we did today with Allah, sharp long term.
So how long will be surely should when they're either resto fueled or too late? Sara Lee Kumar has somebody
