Welcome to Illumina and for now in Santa Lena on LinkedIn I was in the arena What do you hope to happen what is alternativa already Annabelle Philadelphian was okna HD now
which I am in Minister Marina COLA to be ruiner center and now that Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
Tonight we have three names of Allah subhanahu wa Tada
are very important names that
perhaps should have been mentioned earlier
in the sequence of
the names of a like terms of their subject.
So these names all point to the Oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala
the way Danny or the Oneness of Allah
so there are three
and they are a Lewa head,
and a Witter.
And we're head and a head and a waiter.
So all three names they point to
the Oneness of Allah subhanahu wa Tada Allah being one and unique in every way.
And so this concept is basically alluding to the concept of Mohit
which is unique to Islam.
It is unique to Islam.
And the very central theme of our deen is
is the Tawheed of Allah, which the entire Deen rests upon.
And previously we spoke about
Allah's Tawheed and how He is One and Unique in all respects.
And so, he is one
in him being a rubbed the Lord. So, this characteristic of Rubia of Lordship,
which includes many different aspects like creation,
control power, etc.
So, Allah subhanho wa Taala is one in his Rubia without any partner and he is one also in his divinity
in his Udo here
in his deserving of worship, without any rival
and he was also one
in his beautiful names and lofty attributes without any similarity or resemblance.
So, these three names
all allude to the one Danya, the Oneness of Allah.
As for the first and Whitehead,
it is mentioned numerous times in the
sum 20 to 30 odd times.
And in almost every instance,
it is used
to prove that Allah subhanahu Attallah is one as opposed to what the machinery can claim
that Allah subhanho wa Taala is not one or that
or that God is not one
and that there are others that deserve worship.
And so for example, sortcl Bokaro, Allah subhanahu wa Tada says,
verse 163, what you that who come?
Isla who hit?
And your ILA, and this meme, ILA is a name we spoke about before as well. Your ILA your deity Your God is One Isla de la Hoon wack La ilaha illa who are Rahman Rahim? There is none who deserves worship except him. And he is a proud man and
and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says,
In refutation of the Christian
In two instances.
The first is in surah nisa
in verse 171. While at aku Luthor Raja
do not say three
don't say he is three
referring to the concept of the Trinity
what Kulu thelotter into hieronder
sees from making this claim that is better for you.
In Allahu Allahu Ahad
a lot is only one
and then sort of Merida verse 73, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, look like the kaffir and the you know, call in Allah 32 serata they have indeed disbelieved, who say that Allah is
the third of three.
Again, referring to the Trinity
and then what does Allah say when they're mean Isla in Illa law one I mean ilaha illa Illa on wide.
There is no ILA except one ILA
and that is Allah
and Allah subhana wa Tada says, into a tunnel
verse 51, will call a law who let Turkey do Isla hyena three
and Allah said do not take to eat last do not take two gods
in who are era word. He indeed is only one ILA one God.
And so, it has been mentioned numerous times in the
ask for a head
how many times has been mentioned in Accra
it's mentioned in one surah we all know
which is which Surah
and this is the only place it is mentioned.
So I'll add is only mentioned once in the Para. And this is the only place in which it is mentioned.
And we're going to talk a little bit more about that in sha Allah Tada.
here and sort of to this loss. As for the third name, and Witter.
It is not found in the Quran,
but rather in a heavy
and so we've mentioned in the very beginning that when it comes to the names and attributes of Allah,
we only take them from either the Quran or whatever has been authentically narrated of a hadith
and is the first name that we've come across. That is not mentioned in the Quran, but rather it is mentioned in a hadith.
So this hadith is found in Bukhari and Muslim.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Lilla, he TISA to notice Aroona Isma to Allah belong 99 names.
Meet attune Illa Heda
100 minus one.
Now you follow her, I don't even know the surgeon
learns these names and memorizes them except that he will enter Jen.
So this is a Hadith that we all know and we mentioned this hadith in the introduction when we're speaking about
the names and attributes of Allah.
But then, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in the end of the Hadith, well, who are we to run? You have bull Witter?
And he is Witter.
And he loves it.
So here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam attributed this name to Allah.
He said he is Witter.
So, we also affirm that for all.
So in here, the meaning of winter which basically means
it means symbol
and the other meaning for winter is odd, odd number.
So being single being one
is the very first number in terms of odd numbers.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah is
Witcher not that he is
odd numbers, but that he is single one which is the first odd number
so how about Elwha HUD and HUD what is the difference between the two
and why and I had come from the same root word
but in terms of the difference between the two
wides is simply the Arabic word for the number one.
So, you say 1234
in Arabic you say, left hid it's Anantha lotta herbs like that.
So, when it refers to the number one,
as a name of Allah, it refers to his being the one and true God.
And it also refers to him being the first
before whom nothing existed,
before whom not no one or nothing existed.
And so, this in turn,
tells us that no one deserves to be worshipped besides Allah
and that he has no partner
in his worship
on the other hand, so this is a lie ahead. This is the meaning of ahead as for an AD,
AD basically conveys an uncountable oneness
and uncountable, oneness. So it is not one in a series.
one as in the number one so it's 123. So it's part of a series and is the first number
ahead you don't use it in that sense.
So we don't say
ahead, it means the latter or
rather, we only say word for that.
So add basically conveys the meaning of
uncountable oneness, it cannot be counted. It's not like one plus one.
It's not something that can be counted.
So, it cannot be added it cannot be divided into fractions.
It stands for a singular unique entity.
Also in grammatical usage,
it is a form of
the word one to distinguish an individual from others
like in the phrase Hulu
which means one of them.
So, if you want to say
only one of them showed up,
you would say to him, Jarrod had
one of them showed up.
So, this shows one of the differences between
and this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala
uses add in Surah to floss.
And not worried
because the sewers theme
is what the theme of solar class is to show the uniqueness of Allah
he was the first and he has no offspring.
And so add has a stronger connotation
and meaning to it, when it is used to describe Allah as oneness and to negate
any partner or any similarity
So for example in Arabic
you would use a head to say
that there is not any one in the house
if you want to say there's there's
there's no buddy in the house,
you would use the term ahead, let you Jedi ahead
you will not use it.
You will not say that you do Why'd filming. Why?
Because that would mean
that would mean there's not one in the house. But there's two, there's three, there's four.
So what is used as a number?
And ad is used
to basically negate
to say it's one and only one.
To say that it's one and only one.
And that is the theme of certain slots, that Allah is the one and only one
especially in refutation of the Christians who said that he has a son or or who said that Allah is three.
So it's suitable for Allah to say that he is here in this context, and not wide.
And that's why I had was also
what Bilal robiola who he used
when he was being tortured
and so, you know,
he was being told to recant his Islam,
to give up his Islam, and to disbelieve in Allah and disbelieve in the Prophet sallallahu How do you sell them while under duress, while under torture,
and while in that state, with the pain and the suffering, he kept on seeing, I had done I had
he kept on saying, don't add.
Why because ahead,
is more powerful in conveying that message of the Oneness of Allah
and the uniqueness of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada
and the Prophet sallallahu Allah was suddenly drawn in
in the conquest of Mecca
when he entered the kava and destroyed all the idols
and he came out and imagine
crowds, hundreds of 1000s of people and you have even the notables
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was looking for one individual
and that was Billa.
So he said where's Bella?
So Allah does. The uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw the land and he said, All Bilal the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is calling you.
So he went, and the Prophet saw some of them said,
I want you to come with me and pray inside of the Kaaba before anyone else does.
So here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was honoring Bilal, or the Allah one
for his loyalty
honoring Him for His sacrifice and his loyalty. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
I saw you on the day that you were being tortured when no one else was being tortured for Islam
meaning that he was one of the very early companions and he went through what no one went through in those early days of Islam.
So the point here is, the head
has a more powerful meaning
than we had although the both of them both at work it had mean that Allah is One.
Now the people of other religions they may believe
In God has been one
but in the sense of wide
not in the sense of a heart
and so, they make the mistake of attributing
attributes of the creation to Allah
or the attribute partners to him.
And so, it no longer becomes
a lot his ad
but rather he is one among many.
And so, it is only when you disassociate Allah's attributes from similarity to the creation, that you can believe that a lot is
unique in His Oneness.
So, what are some of the things that these three names teach us? First of all,
that Allah subhanho wa Taala is one in every single way from every single perspective
which means, that we have to negate
from Allah every rival,
in both his very essence is very being, that he is one in his existence.
And there is no God in existence,
who is equal to Him, who is like him
and also in his names and attributes. So, he has one
in his that in his very essence and being and he is also one in his a smart and she fat in his names and his attributes
and this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala has mentioned
in the Quran, Lisa technically he shade
well who was semi albasini
In Surah two Shura
there is nothing like him.
So, here are a lot negates any similarity any resemblance
he has no resemblance he has no equal.
And Allah subhanahu wa Tada says hell to Allah Buddha who semiya Surah Maria
Can you think of any rival any equal any match to him?
And then in sort of three slots,
a lock includes where lemmya kula who Khufu one
and there is none comparable to him.
He has no match, he has no equal, there is none comparable to him.
And think about it, this verse.
It represents a golden rule concerning how to properly understand
Allah's names and attributes which is that Allah subhanho wa Taala is not comparable to anyone or anything.
Nor does he resemble anyone or anything
in any way or manner whatsoever. So Allah ended the surah
with the same message that he started the sutra with
Kulu Allah who
say He is Allah one,
the one and only ahead. And then he concluded
by mentioning the same thing in a different way
by negating any similarity. So in the in the beginning of the surah,
he affirmed his oneness and his uniqueness. And then in the end of the surah, he negated
anything or anyone being similar to him subhanho wa taala.
The second thing that this that these names teach us is that we need to refrain from trying to resemble Allah to his creation.
And so no matter how much we try to comprehend,
or imagine Allah we can never reach
the true reality of His being.
Because there is none comparable to
and so even trying to imagine, Allah subhanahu Attallah is impossible.
Because whatever we imagine
it is something that we have
So what you're doing is you're comparing a lot to
And also because we can never
our finite minds
can never comprehend
what is infinite, what has no limit, and that is Allah subhana wa Tada.
And so our job is only to believe in what Allah has told us, about himself.
About His names are about his attributes, believing
in them as they are, without allowing our minds to delve into, you know, how much this name of Allah or how much this attribute of Allah be.
We have to simply stop there. This is the limit. Allah has told us this is what he is, this is who he is. He's described himself to us. And then that's it.
There is no way possible for us to go beyond that.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
he says, in Hadith, in Hadith, could see
that Allah subhanho wa taala, the mighty and majestic, he says,
that even Adam, the son of Adam,
could read any, that he denies me. And he has no right to do so.
will shatter many, and he insults me and he has no right to do so.
And then the Prophet SAW Selim explained it.
Allah says, As for his denial of me,
it is him saying that Allah will never recreate me like he created me before.
even though the recreation of him is easier than his original creation,
then Allah says, As for his insulting me, then it is his saying that Allah has taken a son.
But I am
the one and only and I am a summit.
I do not be God nor was I begotten, and there is none comparable to me. So this hadith actually explains pseudocolor slash.
It's an explanation of Surah TL.
And basically, what it teaches us is that we can never resemble Allah subhanho wa taala, he has no equal.
He has no similarity, even in what we try to imagine.
Thirdly, Allah subhanahu Attallah being one means that we direct our ADA and our worship to Him alone.
And so anyone who believes
in a lot as one,
he must also believe that
only he deserves to be worshipped. And this is something we spoke about and have been mentioning, several times.
And so Allah subhanahu wa Tada if he is one,
in his being,
in His Lordship, and in his names and his attributes,
you would conclude
the only he deserves to be worshipped.
So anyone who
directs his worship to others, he's committed to grievous sin.
Why is it that Shrek is
the grievous sin?
Why is it that it is
the worst sin
and the sin that is unforgivable?
There are many sins, that Allah will forgive, even the worst of them like murder, like Xena and so on and so forth. But this is one thing Allah will not forgive
It's going against the purpose of creation
in English not to be here.
That's the evidence for the fact that, you know,
all sins are forgiven except check. But the reason why
shark is so
you know, it's such a huge crime.
And it's so offensive
is as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained, when he was asked, What is the worst sin?
He answered not by saying a ship, he answered by saying, and toda la la la, he need done wahala
to set up a rival with Allah when He is the One who created you,
but the Prophet SAW Selim chose these words, to show how hideous the crime is, how offensive it is, that Allah is the One who created you. And he's the one who provides for you. And then you go, and you sit up partners with him.
And then you go and you worship others.
How ungrateful you are to Allah.
Not just you're not worshiping Allah, but then you're worshiping others besides.
So that's why shidduch is that sin that Allah will not forgive? What do we mean that Allah will not forgive?
Meaning if you die, without repenting from that sin,
if you die upon schicke, then in the mirror,
there's no chance
there's no chance for the Mercy of Allah and His forgiveness. As we're in this dunya then it is forgivable
if a person committed ship, and then he sincerely repent to Allah.
And he says the shahada and he enters into Islam, and he doesn't commit shirk again, until he dies,
then Allah has forgiven him.
But what we mean is in the author, what we mean is, if a person dies without repentance, on the other hand, other sins,
even the major ones, there is the chance that if a person did not repent from them, that he will be forgiven by Allah in the effort.
And this is the position of Allah Sunan Gemma that people who commit major sins, they are left to the Mercy of Allah and the will of Allah, the mushiya of Allah, Allah will do with them what He wills
as long as they died as believers, they died with Eman and without committing surecall You see.
So if they died not having repented from those sins
Yes, we do say that it is feared that they will not be forgiven.
Obviously a person who is wicked and he lives a an evil life and he dies in that state. We fear for him.
But if he's a believer, we don't say for certain that he's in the Hellfire
but rather he will be left to Allah subhanahu wa Tada. So that's the difference between shirk and other things.
Fourthly, Allah subhanho wa Taala being a winter
means, as we said that he is single,
and one is the first odd number.
And that's why I know the meaning of Witter is odd.
So, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah is at Witter. He meant odd, he meant that Allah is
And when he said that Allah loves Witter.
He meant that Allah loves odd numbers.
And so in one narration of that hadith or a different Hadith, he says, The Allah loves Witter for otira.
Referring to those who pray to Yama lay, that Allah loves Witter, therefore, end off with Witter in your Korea.
So Korea, Malaysia is to rakats
multi multiples of 2246 etc.
The Prophet sallallahu wasallam commanded that we end with
So if you prayed for
end with five,
if you prayed 10 And with 11,
if you pray 20, and with 21, if you prayed
24 and 25, et cetera.
And that is the meaning of salatu wrote
that is basically the meaning of salaat and Witter.
That you end with an odd number,
and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would,
would show that practically in his life.
And so when he said that Allah loves odd numbers, he would show that practically.
So in the morning, when he would eat dates, he would eat seven.
When he would take sips of water, he would take three
and he ordered the same.
He told us to do the same not to drink in one gulp, but to take three sips.
And also the other car if we were to think about so many of them are odd numbers, especially the number three.
To save yourself a lot after Salah three times, to Say Subhan, Allah Subhan Allah, Allah subhana wa Vilavi in three times,
and so on and so forth.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will show this practically
where he would do everything he could, and make it odd.
Its own should follow His guidance and we should follow in his footsteps.
Finally, out of Allah's love for winter,
he made the number of names that someone learns and memorizes to be an odd number,
which is the number 99 in the Hadith that we mentioned earlier, the Lajitas are to notice earnest men to Allah belong 99 names, whoever memorizes them into the agenda. So look at how
Allah chose that number instead of for example 100.
To show how he loves
odd numbers, we ask Allah subhanahu wa Tada
to grant us beneficial knowledge and we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to allow us to worship Him, without associated anything with him. Subhana Allah who will become the head when he learned still futile to rake also Lillahi wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
