Last week we went through the two names of Allah subhanho wa Taala that are related
to his Rama His mercy
and they are a rock man and Rahim.
So, today we move on to another two of Allah's names
and these two names are important names as well.
And that is because many of the attributes of Allah
are based on the meanings of these two names.
So these two names are a Hawaii and Alaska you
and Hawaii and Alaska you
they are mentioned in three places in the Para.
Together, they are mentioning three different places in the Quran. The first is in AYATUL kursi
Allahu La ilaha illa who will hire you.
The second is in the beginning of Le Emraan
and if Lam Meem Allahu La ilaha illa who will hire you
and the third place is in surah
verse 111 Wow enter to do who will hide yellow car you
will enter till whoo hoo will hide your car you
so as far ahead
as far as
it has been mentioned in the Quran five times.
So the three times that we've already mentioned, were heavy and I'll come together
and then I'll hate comes on its own
in two other places
in Sula to Farrakhan
in Surah, Furqan, whatever, Kal el el hijo de la de la
what's our care? Island, high yield Lady Lions put your trust in and hide the EverLiving the one who does not die.
It's also for Converse 58.
And the other places in surah. Taha fear,
verse 65, who will hide you?
La ilaha IL, who said your Ruhul mostly three in another deep?
He is a high the EverLiving La ilaha illa who there is none worthy of worship besides Him? For the room, police Rinella Dean so call upon Him
So, moving on to the meanings of these two names, what does it mean?
It means that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the EverLiving
what does that mean? That he is the Ever Living?
We have life we are alive.
Animals have life angels have life.
But what do we mean when we say that Allah is the One who is living?
And why do we say that? everliving
because he never dies.
Basically it means that Allah subhanho wa Taala his life is unlike the life of any anyone else.
Every other creative being
His life was preceded by non existence
and it was followed by non existence,
every single living being.
His life was preceded by non existence
and it will be followed by death and non existence.
Whereas Allah subhanahu wa Tada
his life is not preceded by non existence, and it will not be followed by non existence meaning that ALLAH SubhanA, who had data has always been a life
with no beginning.
he will forever live with no end.
So, he is the EverLiving. And so the life of Allah is complete and perfect in every way from every perspective
unlike the life
of his creation,
in fact, there is no life that exists, except that he is the one who granted it.
there is no life that exists, except that Allah is the One Who granted it
to that thing or that being
now, let's take a look at AYATUL kursi. Where this name is mentioned
ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, Allahu La ilaha illa.
and how you, you,
Allah, He is
the one who there is no god
No God deserving of worship except him.
So notice how
notice here how
after mentioning his sole right to be worshipped
Allah subhanahu Attallah immediately follows that up with these two names and height
the EverLiving Alka you will talk about what that means.
What is the secret in that?
What is the relationship between Allah being the Ever Living
and him being the only one who deserves to be worshipped?
What's the relationship between the two?
Basically, if we were to think about it
the only one who deserves to be worshipped is the one who is
described as being the EverLiving
meaning that no one else deserves worship because
because they're imperfect in that sense.
And this is only one attribute of Allah
that proves why he should be worshipped.
Otherwise, there are so many other attributes of Allah that we will see that show that he deserves to be worshipped besides everyone else.
And so that's why Allah says
in sort of, sort of for fun, as we mentioned, whatever what can you let the light put your trust rely upon the one who is behind every living what I have moved and who does not die
and this is why we see the amazing
reflection of Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah
What did he say when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away?
Where people were shocked
to the point where a homeowner will be alone and being he was didn't even accept
the fact that he had died
Abu Bakar came along and he said
so in the human can I mean cool Yeah, yeah Abu Mohammed in the in the Mohammed
Then put the mat.
Woman can, yeah, Agudo law. So in a lie you lie.
He said, Whoever among you used to worship Mohammed, then indeed, Mohammed has died.
But whoever among you used to worship a lot than indeed a lot is the EverLiving. Who does not die.
And so look at how aboubaker On the other hand
this quality of Allah,
to show that even
the best of creation,
has a lot he was singing. In the end of the day, he is a creative being.
And he will die.
And he's imperfect because he's a human being.
But only Allah is perfect in every way. And that's why he deserves to be worshipped.
So the point is that by Allah mentioning his ever living nature, he is proving that he alone deserves worship. As for someone who is living,
but then eventually dies.
Or someone who is dead, and in their grave,
or something that has no life to begin with,
do any of these three deserve worship?
None of them deserve worship because they're missing this essential attribute
someone who is living, but dies, let's take the example
of the ISA, his salah, who we don't believe He died, but the Christian faith that he died?
How does it make sense for you to worship someone who according to you has done?
The second example, someone who is dead and currently in their grave? How does it make sense to go to a grave? No matter who it may be in that grave? Even if it is a respected saint or scholar who died centuries ago? How does it make sense for you to go there and make dua
to the person in that grave?
And essentially worshipping?
And in the third example, something that has no life to begin with, how does it makes sense to worship? idols made of stone and rock that don't have life to begin with?
And this is why Allah subhanahu wa Tada says, Who will hire
who will hire you La ilaha illa who he is the EverLiving There is none who deserves to be worshipped except him, fed the rule, Muslims Rinella Dean, so call upon him with sincere devotion, call upon Allah, look at how Allah took that name of his help, and ended by saying therefore call upon Him because He is and had
another point to reflect on
concerning Etude piracy.
And how you can you
notice how after Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned his attribute of Al Haj and can you What did he say right after that?
What comes right after?
Allahu Allah Allah who will tell you
later who Siena to one No.
the prelude to sleep,
when I know nor any sleep
What is the relationship between that and Allah being the EverLiving?
Basically, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained to us that sleep is the minor form of death.
a minor form of death. So when you sleep
and you see the dreams that you do, it's because your soul has left your body and is wandering around and seeing those things. Then when you wake up, the soul comes back
So it's a minor form of death.
And so Allah subhanho wa Taala negated from himself. Not only
that he cannot die, but also that
he cannot sleep and he doesn't need sleep.
And so Allah affirmed for himself
perfectness from every angle
and that's what we believe in, whenever we affirm a name or an attribute of Allah, we are negating its exact opposite.
So for example, when we say that a lot is a high, every living what are we negating?
That Allah cannot
that cannot work, he cannot die. We are negating the exact opposite. When we affirm for example, that Allah is Aladdin, the most just
what are we negating?
We are negating from Allah injustice.
So every name or attribute of Allah that we affirm for Allah,
we are negating the exact opposite of it.
So here we have negated
from Allah, death, drowsiness and sleep.
And so that further shows the perfectness of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.
So this is the meaning of a hike. As for I'll tell you
I'll tell you has been mentioned in the Quran only three times.
And these three times
are the ones we've already mentioned.
And so I'll claim you in the Quran only comes with a high
I'll hire you for you, they come paired together, a human does not come on its own.
So it was mentioned in a delicacy.
And in the beginning of earlier Emraan Bellefleur mean, Allahu Allah in the who will heal you for you. And then it was mentioned in surah Taha, were entered till whoo hoo, little high yield to you, which means
that the faces have humbled themselves before a high alpha you this is going to be on the Day of Judgment.
So, what does Alka you mean?
Alka you describes the nature of Allah's life,
the nature of his existence.
So Alhaj tells us that Allah is the Ever Living.
And a human tells us how Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Ever Living.
And so I'll tell you in basically means, the one who is perfectly established without any support.
There are three meanings of I'll tell you.
There are three meanings of I'll tell you. The first is that I'll tell you is the one who is perfectly established without any support.
Secondly, he is the one who is independent
and self sustaining,
meaning that he does not depend on any of his creation, to exist.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala is independent in every way.
He is self sustaining,
he sustains himself.
He does not depend on any of his creation, for his existence
and his sustenance.
And the third thing is that he is the one who
sustains everyone else.
He is the sustainer of all of existence.
So he is the self sustainer and the all Sustainer.
He is completely independent,
on his own, not in need of any support
in order to exist, and at the same time.
Everything besides Him is in need of Him in order to exist
We'll look at how powerful the meaning of
the union is.
Look at how powerful the meaning of a union is. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala sustains us and the entire creation
He provides for us.
Every single creation of a lot is dependent upon Allah, in order to exist, not only it's coming into existence, not only its creation, but even after that,
no creation of a walk in exists after Allah has created it, and just, you know, take care of itself.
Every single creation of Allah is in need of Allah in order to take care of it to sustain it.
Whether it be the living or the nonliving
whether it be things here on Earth, were the planets, the stars, the galaxies.
If they did not have the support of a lot of sustenance of Allah, Allah taking care of them.
The universe would be in chaos
and life on Earth would not be possible.
So we need Allah support and cannot be independent in our existence. So while Allah is completely independent, and self sustaining, we are the opposite. We are fully dependent upon him and this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions
when he calls upon mankind
to turn to him.
Yeah, a Yohannes
Surah Felter diversity. Yeah, are you had NAS and Tamil folk, ah, Allah,
all mankind. You are all in need of Allah. All of you stand in need of Allah.
Did a lot just leave it there?
No, how did he end?
Well, Allahu Allah, honey, your honey.
And Allah alone is the self sufficient.
And the praiseworthy one. He is self sufficient. He doesn't need
So in this one I Allah tells us that we are in need of Him, all of us without exception.
And then he tells us that he is not in need of anyone.
So these two names of Allah and Haley and I'll tell you
what do these two names teach us? First of all,
that Allah subhana wa Tada is a high ever living
and everything else will perish will die.
As Allah subhana wa Tada says, Could lumen Alia Sam, everyone on it to me know on earth will perish
via Bekaa wedge hoorah because you won't be crowned and only the Face of your Lord only Allah will remain.
And so Allah subhanho wa Taala is described as the EverLiving.
And his life has no shortcomings whatsoever. So there is no tiredness, there is no fatigue, there is no sleep. There is no sickness
as opposed to
the life of his creation,
as opposed to the life of his creation. The second thing that these two names teach us is that Allah subhanho wa Taala is to you,
the one whom all things exist, and all of his creation depend upon him. So none of them can exist
as we mentioned, or stay alive without him, even for the blink of an eye.
Even for the blink of an eye, while he does not need any of them even for a blink of an eye.
None of Allah's creation
can stay alive
without him for the blink of an eye
and he subhanho wa Taala does not need
Have you any of his creation, for even the blink of an eye?
He is the one upon whom all of creation exists. And they are in need of Him to manage
We are all in need of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And here a question comes
when people hear that Allah subhanho wa Taala He created us
to worship Him.
And so that is the purpose of our life. It's all they ask.
Does that then mean that Allah is in need of our worship? If He created us to worship Him for that purpose, then that means he needs our worship.
And so their answer to that is that No.
Allah subhanahu wa Tada He created us to worship Him, not because he is in need of that
but rather because we are the ones who are in need of that
we are the ones who are in need of that worship.
the third lesson that we learned from these two names is the importance of calling upon Allah subhanahu wa Tada by these two names combined, as they have been mentioned in the Quran and high end tell you
and that's because there's a hadith in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
he mentioned one of the one of the do as of
the morning and the evening so there are certain as a car and do as we say
in the morning as Carlos Saba and in the evening as car in the south
and this is yeah, hi you Yeah, are you Yeah, how you, you have to you Bureau hermetic as the leaf filata kill me in LFC utar Fatah Hi.
So you call upon Allah with these two names you say? Yeah, you? Yeah, can you
be Rama teacher estery.
By Your Mercy, I seek your help.
Or select Alicia Nicola who
rectify for me. All of my affairs, take care of all of my affairs.
When asked to kill me, Ilana see perfetta Hein, and do not leave me in charge of my affairs. For even the blink of an eye.
For even the blink of an eye,
until the DUA, do what you're asking Allah for, is to take care of you, and manage all of your affairs for you, and not to leave you to yourself.
So that reminds us of a you.
We are in need of Allah.
And if we think we are not in need of Allah for even the blink of an eye, and if Allah was to leave us for the blink of an eye, we would perish.
And so when you're when life becomes difficult,
and you find difficulty in your affairs,
call upon Allah with this, don't
ignore him, he talks about the power
of this dua, because of these two names of Allah. And because of what it mentions, he says, asking Allah by His names and how he Anelka you has a great effect on him answering your do has and getting relief from difficulty and hardship.
Because the attribute of hierarchy of life
comprises all attributes of perfection.
all attributes and this is what we mentioned the very beginning
the importance of these two names because so many other attributes of Allah go back to
these two names.
Allah is the ever hearing a Semia
he is the ever seeing herbal sweet, he is the most knowledgeable I mean, all of these attributes go back to the fact that he is the EverLiving
because someone who is not living cannot have these perfect attributes
So, it will tell you he says, The attribute of life comprises all attributes of perfection that implied life.
Then he said, and the attributes of an A you have self sustenance comprises all attributes of action.
If we were to divide the attributes of Allah into two kinds,
attributes related to his essence and who he is
like, the fact that he is a hate
and a harlot
and so on and so forth.
And then we're to say the second kind of attributes are the ones related to his actions. So he here is, he see us, he speaks, He gives he provides
so, I'll highlight the EverLiving comprises all attributes of Allah, the very essence of who he is, and I'll call you
comprise all attributes related to Allah's actions, because he's the he's the one who sustains His creation,
sustaining them providing for them, giving them life, and so on and so forth.
So these are some of the things that we learned from
these two names of Allah subhanho wa Taala and high
and Dr. Yoon, without will conclude in short and long time. So panicle Lacombe comedic
