00:00:39--> 00:00:42

well bad Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:00:48--> 00:00:52

today we move on to another four of Allah's names

00:00:56--> 00:01:01

and these four names basically allude to

00:01:02--> 00:01:03


00:01:04--> 00:01:05

all encompassing

00:01:07--> 00:01:10

the attributes of the helper

00:01:12--> 00:01:17

or a lot encompassing his entire creation.

00:01:19--> 00:01:21

And so, he SubhanaHu Attallah encompasses

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

everyone in everything

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

in both time and place.

00:01:30--> 00:01:37

The encompass of Allah is both in terms of time and place, as we will see in these four names.

00:01:43--> 00:01:47

So these four names have been mentioned

00:01:50--> 00:01:51


00:01:53--> 00:01:54

together in the Quran,

00:01:55--> 00:01:56

and also in the sun

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

and they have only been mentioned once

00:02:03--> 00:02:05

both in the Quran and in the sun

00:02:09--> 00:02:15

so in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah, Al Hadid and the very beginning of Surah Al Hadid

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

who will will will ask you

00:02:20--> 00:02:25

or VA Hebrew well about Lena who could really show you entirely

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

so these are the four names that we have a well

00:02:33--> 00:02:35

and a VA here and l Barton

00:02:40--> 00:02:49

and so we're gonna see what each one of them what each one of these mean. But all of them in the end of the day they they point to Allah is all encompassing.

00:02:51--> 00:03:02

So Allah says, He is a one, the first and he is Alaska, the last and he is a VA here, the most apparent or the or the highest

00:03:04--> 00:03:05

and he is about in

00:03:06--> 00:03:10

the most intimate or the most near

00:03:11--> 00:03:14

well who will be equally shouting at him and he has knowledge of everything.

00:03:16--> 00:03:20

As for the Sunnah we have

00:03:22--> 00:03:23

in the Hadith.

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

in Sahih, Muslim,

00:03:27--> 00:03:33

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam basically taught us a dua that we say

00:03:34--> 00:03:35

before going to sleep.

00:03:38--> 00:03:46

So he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, before you go to sleep, put your right hand go to sleep on your right side with your right hand

00:03:47--> 00:03:50

under your head, and say this.

00:03:52--> 00:04:15

What is this dua? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah Houma are our best selves were t what up del? Oro we were up Bella our Sheila when Robin our up that Felicia fairly will have the one hour for Mozilla Turati well in God will for Khan who will be coming shared the cliche in enter as we don't be now see it.

00:04:18--> 00:04:38

So it's part of the DUA and then the Prophet SAW Selim said Allah Hoonah until a Waterloo fella is a complication, where until Hebrew fairly sadaqa Kashi were until VA hero Fela is a full cache. What Intel does cleaning valleys do not cache.

00:04:39--> 00:04:42

It could be de Nino or La Nina mineral factor.

00:04:46--> 00:04:52

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam called upon Allah by these four names that are mentioned in the Quran.

00:04:54--> 00:04:58

And so he said, Oh Allah, you are a one the first

00:04:59--> 00:05:00


00:05:00--> 00:05:20

Seeing before you, you are the last was nothing after you, you are a VA here, the most apparent or the highest without anyone being or anything being above you, and you are the most near albarin With nothing being nearer than you.

00:05:21--> 00:05:23

It could be in a day, you know what I mean? I mean thought could

00:05:26--> 00:05:30

help us to pay off our debts and relieve us of poverty.

00:05:34--> 00:05:40

So what do each one of these names mean? Each one means something else.

00:05:44--> 00:05:45


00:05:48--> 00:06:00

with respect to these names, in particular, we take the meaning from none other than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whose explanation was sufficient in that too.

00:06:01--> 00:06:07

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not only mentioned these names, but then explained each one.

00:06:08--> 00:06:11

Not only explaining what they meant, but also

00:06:12--> 00:06:14

negating their opposite.

00:06:17--> 00:06:20

negating the opposite as we saw, so he said,

00:06:21--> 00:06:34

Allah until a well, Felisa publication, Oh Allah, you are the first without anyone being before him, so he negated the fact that there's anyone before Allah.

00:06:35--> 00:06:36

And the same with the other three.

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

And so Oh, well we can say is

00:06:43--> 00:06:48

Allah subhanahu Attallah being the first before whom nothing, nothing unknown existed,

00:06:50--> 00:06:54

which means that no matter how far you go back into the eternal past,

00:06:56--> 00:07:07

no matter how far you go back, nothing precedes ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Nothing comes before him. There is no first accepted or what precedes it.

00:07:08--> 00:07:13

There is no first except that Allah was there before.

00:07:16--> 00:07:20

And so it proves that everything besides Allah

00:07:23--> 00:07:26

is a creation that has a beginning.

00:07:28--> 00:07:36

While Allah subhanahu Attallah is uncreated, and has no beginning. So that's the meaning of a well the first.

00:07:38--> 00:07:49

And the Prophet SAW Selim mentioned in another Hadith, explaining how Allah was there, in the beginning, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Can Allah welcome yakun

00:07:51--> 00:07:51

I don't know

00:07:55--> 00:08:02

that Allah had existed, when there was no one else with him. There was no one else other than him, there was nothing else other than Him.

00:08:03--> 00:08:05

So Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:08:07--> 00:08:09

is not only

00:08:10--> 00:08:11

not only

00:08:14--> 00:08:18

does he precede the creation, but also he has no beginning.

00:08:21--> 00:08:23

Also, he has no beginning.

00:08:26--> 00:08:32

And this is something we will come to later on in Sharla. How to handle the second name Alaska.

00:08:35--> 00:08:39

Alaska, is basically Allah subhana wa Tada

00:08:40--> 00:08:41

being the last

00:08:42--> 00:08:49

and enduring eternally, after which nothing else and nothing and no one else will remain.

00:08:51--> 00:08:57

Which means that no matter how far into the future, things will exist,

00:09:00--> 00:09:03

nothing will last Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

and so and so there is no last except that what comes after.

00:09:11--> 00:09:16

There is nothing that is considered last except Allah. Allah lasts.

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

So this proves that

00:09:23--> 00:09:27

everything and everyone besides Allah is a creation that has an end

00:09:29--> 00:09:31

while Allah is uncreated and has no end

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

so Allah subhanahu wa Tada says in this regard

00:09:40--> 00:09:48

well couldn't lumen couldn't lumen eylea fan wire because watch Rob Be careful regenerate across

00:09:49--> 00:09:55

the air, every one upon it, meaning upon the earth will eventually perish will cease to exist

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

while your Lord Himself

00:10:02--> 00:10:06

And the Face of your Lord will remain forever.

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

So, this is the meaning of our after.

00:10:13--> 00:10:14

After that we have a VA here

00:10:17--> 00:10:19

a VA had basically means

00:10:21--> 00:10:22

the most apparent

00:10:24--> 00:10:30

which means that He is the Most High as explained by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he said,

00:10:32--> 00:10:35

Well, I'm Tovar here for laser focused cache.

00:10:37--> 00:10:41

You are the law here. And there is none above you.

00:10:43--> 00:10:47

And so this means that no matter how high up you go,

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

in the creation of a lot, nothing

00:10:52--> 00:10:53

is above Allah.

00:10:54--> 00:10:56

No matter how high up you go.

00:10:57--> 00:10:59

And so there is nothing high except that ALLAH is higher.

00:11:01--> 00:11:04

There is nothing high except that ALLAH is higher than that.

00:11:07--> 00:11:10

And we know that the highest of Allah's creation

00:11:11--> 00:11:11

is what

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

is it the seven heavens.

00:11:19--> 00:11:28

It is the harsh the Throne of Allah is like the ceiling of the creation, like the roof of the creation.

00:11:31--> 00:11:45

It is also the largest of Allah's creation, as the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam mentioned, there is nothing larger than the harsh the Throne of Allah. Even Mr. Udo Viola. And he describes,

00:11:46--> 00:11:49

you know, the, the levels

00:11:50--> 00:11:52

of Allah's creation in terms of

00:11:53--> 00:11:56

how high up they go. He said,

00:11:57--> 00:12:03

between the first heaven, and the one above is a distance of 500 years journey

00:12:04--> 00:12:10

between each of the seven heavens is a similar distance of 500 years.

00:12:13--> 00:12:18

So you have the seven heavens between them, is a distance of that much.

00:12:22--> 00:12:26

And then he said, likewise, the distance between the seventh heaven

00:12:27--> 00:12:28

and the kursi

00:12:30--> 00:12:34

is a journey of 500 years, the currency as mentioned in AYATUL, kursi.

00:12:38--> 00:12:45

Was the accuracy your personality or the currency of Allah extends over the heavens and earth.

00:12:46--> 00:12:48

And they've been at best what are the Allaha this

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

explained the kursi

00:12:52--> 00:12:54

to be the footstool of Allah.

00:12:56--> 00:13:04

So the courtesy we should not confuse with the hush. The currency is one thing and the other is something else.

00:13:05--> 00:13:16

As we see in the same narration of evenness ruder, or the Allahu La, he says, between the seventh heaven and the kursi of Allah is a distance of 700 500 years.

00:13:18--> 00:13:20

And then he said, Ah, she's above the water.

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

And then he said,

00:13:26--> 00:13:27

Well law who folk allowed

00:13:29--> 00:13:32

that Allah subhanho wa Taala is above that.

00:13:35--> 00:13:40

When I asked Fermina, when I offer Allah human, I'm Alikum Shane

00:13:42--> 00:13:44

and Allah is above the throne.

00:13:46--> 00:13:49

And none of your deeds are hidden from him.

00:13:52--> 00:13:57

So this explains to us that Allah subhanahu wa Tada is the highest

00:14:00--> 00:14:03

and that no matter how high you go in the creation of Allah

00:14:06--> 00:14:10

going through the heavens and eventually reaching the courtesy and even the outer,

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

there is nothing above Allah subhanho wa Tada.

00:14:16--> 00:14:17

Allah is the highest.

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

As for Allah Barton,

00:14:22--> 00:14:24

then he is the most near

00:14:26--> 00:14:34

again, as explained by the Prophet sallallahu wasallam himself. When he said, well until Baldwin, Felisa, duna cache,

00:14:35--> 00:14:37

you are the most near

00:14:38--> 00:14:39

and nothing

00:14:40--> 00:14:48

is nearer than you. Basically what this means is that Allah is the most near with nothing being nearer to the creation than him.

00:14:51--> 00:14:55

Which means that no matter how down to the core of something, you go,

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

nothing is closer to that thing that

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


00:15:02--> 00:15:03

so think about yourself

00:15:07--> 00:15:09

no one is closer to you than yourself.

00:15:12--> 00:15:15

Even the closest of human beings to you

00:15:17--> 00:15:19

does not know things that are inside of you,

00:15:20--> 00:15:23

your inner most secrets, your inner thoughts.

00:15:26--> 00:15:28

So you are closest to yourself.

00:15:29--> 00:15:32

But Allah is even closer to you than yourself.

00:15:33--> 00:15:35

So that's the meaning of Albertan

00:15:37--> 00:15:40

that there is nothing closer

00:15:42--> 00:15:43

to any being

00:15:45--> 00:15:48

in terms of knowledge besides Allah.

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

There is nothing near nearer to a person

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

except that ALLAH is near

00:15:59--> 00:16:10

even one's own self and that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala says in this regard, it's sort of off one o'clock Hello canal insana. When Allah Muna to us we should be enough so

00:16:11--> 00:16:17

indeed it is We Who created man and we fully know what his soul whispers to him.

00:16:20--> 00:16:21

Allah knows

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

your inner thoughts.

00:16:27--> 00:16:30

Well, no Acorah boo, he lay him in heaven in worry.

00:16:32--> 00:16:35

And we are closer to him than his jugular vein.

00:16:38--> 00:16:40

So the jugular vein is a vein

00:16:41--> 00:16:42

connected to your heart.

00:16:44--> 00:16:48

That is the closest part of you, to you as a human being.

00:16:50--> 00:16:50

If it was cut,

00:16:52--> 00:16:56

you would, you would die. But what is closer to you than that?

00:17:03--> 00:17:04

So these are

00:17:05--> 00:17:08

the four names of Allah that all of them what do we notice?

00:17:11--> 00:17:14

They refer to a lot encompassing everything.

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

So Allah encompasses everything by time.

00:17:23--> 00:17:30

Go to the past and there's nothing before Allah go to the future. There's nothing after Allah. And Allah encompasses everything

00:17:33--> 00:17:35

in terms of space

00:17:38--> 00:17:45

so no matter how, how high above you go, there's nothing higher than Allah encompasses his creation.

00:17:46--> 00:17:48

No matter how down

00:17:49--> 00:17:52

and miniscule and to the core you go

00:17:53--> 00:17:57

of things here on Earth, or even beneath the earth.

00:17:58--> 00:17:59


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

is closer to the creation of Allah.

00:18:04--> 00:18:06

Then Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:18:11--> 00:18:17

So there are many things that we learned from these four names, many things that these four names teach us. First of all,

00:18:19--> 00:18:23

philosophy subhanho wa taala, being the first means that he is

00:18:24--> 00:18:25


00:18:28--> 00:18:32

And therefore nothing caused him SubhanaHu wa Tada to exist.

00:18:34--> 00:18:37

Everything else besides Allah

00:18:39--> 00:18:42

had a cause besides be behind its existence.

00:18:45--> 00:18:53

And that's why one of the most obvious proofs that you could debate with an atheist to prove to him the existence of Allah

00:18:54--> 00:18:59

is by telling him that nothing exists,

00:19:00--> 00:19:03

except that it had a cause behind its existence.

00:19:06--> 00:19:12

And so that includes this universe. It could not have just popped up out of nowhere.

00:19:14--> 00:19:24

Nothing comes into being on its own, it has to have a cause. And so that's why if you were to debate with them and go back all the way to what they claimed to be the big bang.

00:19:27--> 00:19:28

Then ask them

00:19:29--> 00:19:36

okay, fine, let's say for argument's sake, that the Big Bang is what caused this universe to come into existence. What caused the Big Bang?

00:19:38--> 00:19:39

And this word, they don't have an answer for you.

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

Because even that big then

00:19:46--> 00:19:48

must have had a cause.

00:19:52--> 00:19:57

Whereas Allah subhanho wa Taala is the only being whose existence did not have a cause.

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

And that's the meaning

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

Have a well, that he is the first

00:20:05--> 00:20:07

he is the first means that

00:20:09--> 00:20:10

nothing preceded him

00:20:11--> 00:20:12

and therefore

00:20:15--> 00:20:19

nothing caused him subhanho wa Taala to come into existence.

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

And here we can

00:20:23--> 00:20:28

touch on a very, very important issue. And that is what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned.

00:20:31--> 00:20:33

Adult that comes to the minds of some people.

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned this 1400 years ago,

00:20:40--> 00:20:47

when today atheists they bring up this doubt and try to confuse you about the existence of Allah. And so, they ask you,

00:20:49--> 00:20:51

if you say that everything must have a cause.

00:20:55--> 00:20:58

And you say that, therefore, there is a Creator.

00:20:59--> 00:21:01

Then they ask you,

00:21:02--> 00:21:03

who created the Creator?

00:21:05--> 00:21:14

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, people will keep on asking questions until someone will say, Allah created the universe, but who created Allah?

00:21:16--> 00:21:21

And then he said, Whoever encounters anything like that, let him say am and to Billa

00:21:23--> 00:21:31

is such a dope comes to your mind that say, then reaffirm your Eman. Say I believe in Allah. That's it.

00:21:32--> 00:21:53

I believe in Allah. In another narration of the same Hadith. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, shaitan will come to one of you and say, Who created such and such? Until he continues asking Him Who created such and such, who created such and such? Until he says to him, then who created your Lord?

00:21:54--> 00:22:08

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when it reaches that stage, the him seek refuge with Allah, let him say, whose will be there he in a shaytani R rajim. I seek refuge in Allah from shaitaan. And then let him stop thinking about it.

00:22:09--> 00:22:15

So here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he told us a source of these doubts that it is from shaitan.

00:22:16--> 00:22:18

And then he also gave us a remedy

00:22:19--> 00:22:24

by reaffirming our Eman and seeking refuge in Allah from shaitan.

00:22:26--> 00:22:32

But even Besides that, there is also a logical answer to this question.

00:22:36--> 00:22:37

The logical answer is

00:22:40--> 00:22:43

the if you say that there has to be a creator of the creator,

00:22:46--> 00:22:48

then who was the creator of that creator?

00:22:50--> 00:22:52

And then who was the creator of that creator.

00:22:54--> 00:22:56

And then you keep on going back

00:22:57--> 00:22:59

infinitely, there will be no end.

00:23:01--> 00:23:09

And this is what they refer to as an infinite regression of events. It's a cycle

00:23:11--> 00:23:12

that is never ending.

00:23:13--> 00:23:17

And so this logically disproves.

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

Or this logically answers, this objection of the atheists.

00:23:27--> 00:23:36

And so that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala is the first uncreated with everyone else coming after him. subhanho wa taala.

00:23:38--> 00:23:40

The second thing that we learned from Allah being the first

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


00:23:45--> 00:23:47

the all

00:23:49--> 00:23:54

ASVAB or means that we take in this world to achieve our goals.

00:23:56--> 00:23:57

They are secondary means.

00:24:00--> 00:24:03

Whenever you want to achieve something in this life

00:24:06--> 00:24:09

you look for ways to achieve that goal.

00:24:13--> 00:24:19

But those we should always be secondary. While Allah subhanahu wa Tada should be the first

00:24:20--> 00:24:32

the one who causes anything to happen. And so this should make us turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala alone and not rely on others. Why because Allah is the first

00:24:33--> 00:24:37

and so so long as Allah is the first than everyone else come second.

00:24:41--> 00:24:49

Put your trust in Allah subhana wa Tada who is the cause, the primary cause behind anything that is going to happen?

00:24:50--> 00:24:52

And so seek it from him subhanho wa Taala

00:24:55--> 00:24:58

thirdly, Allah subhanho wa Taala being asked here

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

means that he

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

is the eternal one

00:25:04--> 00:25:08

he is the last and there will be no one to live on after him.

00:25:10--> 00:25:11

So, here

00:25:13--> 00:25:18

some people may ask how about the eternal nature of the Acura?

00:25:21--> 00:25:22

We know

00:25:24--> 00:25:26

that Allah subhanahu wa Tada has mentioned

00:25:28--> 00:25:30

that there is something that

00:25:31--> 00:25:33

will will never cease to exist

00:25:37--> 00:25:38

it is eternal

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

the Astra is eternal.

00:25:43--> 00:25:44

Jenna is eternal,

00:25:45--> 00:25:47

it's bliss is eternal.

00:25:50--> 00:25:54

And the people agenda will live on without any death and the same thing with the hellfire.

00:25:58--> 00:26:02

So, we can answer this with three different answers first of all,

00:26:04--> 00:26:06

Allah subhanahu Attallah being here

00:26:08--> 00:26:09

means that

00:26:11--> 00:26:15

after everything in this present world ceases to exist only Allah will remain.

00:26:20--> 00:26:22

So it refers to this dunya.

00:26:24--> 00:26:29

And so, there is nothing in this dunya that Allah has created that will live forever.

00:26:32--> 00:26:37

So even the angels that have been existing before mankind

00:26:38--> 00:26:40

and before the jinn

00:26:41--> 00:26:43

even they will die

00:26:45--> 00:26:48

and that will be when it scruffy will blow into the trumpet.

00:26:50--> 00:26:52

And then even his raffia will die

00:26:55--> 00:27:04

and that is when nothing will exist as Allah says, Could lumen alley have fun way of college because originality will occur on

00:27:06--> 00:27:11

everything will cease to exist and only Allah will remain. So this is the meaning of Allah being the last.

00:27:12--> 00:27:16

Nothing will outlast Allah subhanahu ATOD Secondly,

00:27:17--> 00:27:19

the eternity of the Acura

00:27:21--> 00:27:23

was preceded by non existence

00:27:27--> 00:27:29

the Astra had a beginning

00:27:30--> 00:27:33

Jenna Hara beginning the Hellfire had a beginning.

00:27:38--> 00:27:45

And the inhabitants of Jannetty inhabitants of the Hellfire, their will their beginning will be the Day of Judgment.

00:27:46--> 00:27:48

Whereas Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:27:50--> 00:27:53

His eternity is something that

00:27:56--> 00:27:57

has no beginning.

00:27:59--> 00:28:01

It was not preceded by non existence.

00:28:02--> 00:28:06

Thirdly, the eternity of the afterlife is not something

00:28:10--> 00:28:11

that happened on its own. It's not

00:28:14--> 00:28:16

it's not a quality of the Asha.

00:28:19--> 00:28:21

Just like we in the Ashura

00:28:22--> 00:28:28

our eternity, our eternal nature in the Astra is not because

00:28:30--> 00:28:31

we are eternal beings.

00:28:34--> 00:28:36

It will not be because

00:28:38--> 00:28:43

we are eternal beings, it will be because Allah gave us that quality.

00:28:45--> 00:28:48

It will be because Allah will give us that

00:28:50--> 00:28:51


00:28:52--> 00:28:53

it be in Jenna or in the Alpha,

00:28:55--> 00:29:00

just like in this dunya we have certain qualities, certain characteristics

00:29:02--> 00:29:04

that are only related to this dunya

00:29:07--> 00:29:09

like, for example, sleeping

00:29:11--> 00:29:19

it's only related to this dunya not related to the affair. Allah will change your nature in the US data that will not allow you to sleep.

00:29:21--> 00:29:26

Same thing with eating and drinking in Jannah it's not it won't be a need.

00:29:31--> 00:29:34

Likewise, death

00:29:36--> 00:29:47

it's a quality only of this dunya not of the author. And so even the people of the Hellfire, although they will be burned, they will not die because their nature will change.

00:29:48--> 00:29:50

Who is the one who gave him that nature Allah.

00:29:54--> 00:30:00

As for Allah subhanho wa Taala his eternity is an attribute of his very self

00:30:01--> 00:30:03

It's not something a lot acquired.

00:30:06--> 00:30:18

In the US era, we human beings, we will acquire that attribute of being eternal, Allah will give it to us. Whereas ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada

00:30:21--> 00:30:36

him being the last him being the eternal that ever living into the future is an attribute of his very self, of who he is, and it's not something he has acquired. So that is a difference between

00:30:37--> 00:30:39

Allah subhanho wa Taala being an asset

00:30:40--> 00:30:43

and the eternal nature

00:30:44--> 00:30:44

of the asset.

00:30:46--> 00:30:49

Fourthly, believing that Allah subhanho wa Taala is an asset

00:30:51--> 00:30:56

also means that we should make a loss of Hannah who attended the end goal.

00:30:58--> 00:30:59

If Allah is the last,

00:31:00--> 00:31:05

we should make Allah subhanho wa Taala the end goal, our ultimate objective,

00:31:07--> 00:31:09

and not anyone else or anything else.

00:31:11--> 00:31:14

Because everything else, everyone else

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

has an end.

00:31:18--> 00:31:19

So why?

00:31:21--> 00:31:25

Why put all your hopes in something or someone that has an end.

00:31:26--> 00:31:27

And so this includes

00:31:29--> 00:31:33

what we mentioned earlier, the ASVAB the means to achieving our goals.

00:31:34--> 00:31:35

Don't rely

00:31:38--> 00:31:42

on created means and forget about the Creator.

00:31:43--> 00:31:49

And so the lesson here is to attach your heart to Allah and not the creation

00:31:53--> 00:31:54

and to make your

00:31:55--> 00:31:59

eventual goal, the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:32:02--> 00:32:03

who has no end,

00:32:04--> 00:32:06

rather than the pleasure of people

00:32:08--> 00:32:09

who have an eventual And

00:32:12--> 00:32:16

fifthly believing that Allah subhanahu Attallah is Avahi

00:32:19--> 00:32:26

it means that Allah is the most high in both his status as well as his being.

00:32:28--> 00:32:30

Contrary to what some

00:32:32--> 00:32:34

scholars in the past may have said

00:32:35--> 00:32:35


00:32:36--> 00:32:41

a lot being high above only means in his status

00:32:44--> 00:32:45

but not him himself.

00:32:47--> 00:32:53

So they said Allah is not actually above his creation. And we will talk more about this when we get to

00:32:54--> 00:32:55

Allah His name and I leave

00:32:57--> 00:32:58

the Most High

00:33:05--> 00:33:09

and so there are so many proofs in the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:33:11--> 00:33:15

And from the statements of the companions and all the Allahu

00:33:17--> 00:33:26

and those who followed them that have your own, your own proofs that prove that Allah subhanahu wa Tada is high above his creation,

00:33:28--> 00:33:31

with his very being his very essence,

00:33:32--> 00:33:33

above his throne,

00:33:35--> 00:33:36

in a manner befitting himself obviously.

00:33:38--> 00:33:40

So when we say that Allah is High above

00:33:41--> 00:33:46

his creation, it doesn't mean that we are giving

00:33:47--> 00:33:54

ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada a body or shape or we are resembling Allah to his creation.

00:33:55--> 00:33:56


00:33:57--> 00:34:10

what did we say? We said, Yes, Allah is above his creation, He is above his throne, as Allah said in the Quran, or Ron, Alhaji stowa Rockman

00:34:11--> 00:34:14

rose above the throne. But when we say that we add

00:34:16--> 00:34:23

the fact that he is above his creation, and above his throne, in a manner befitting himself in a manner that we don't know.

00:34:24--> 00:34:28

In a manner that for sure does not resemble the creation

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

and in a manner that is unknown to us.

00:34:35--> 00:34:40

So this also means that Allah is not everywhere, contrary to what some people think.

00:34:43--> 00:34:44

Allah Himself is high above.

00:34:45--> 00:34:50

He is everywhere by his knowledge by his sight, by his hearing,

00:34:51--> 00:34:52

not physically.

00:34:54--> 00:34:58

He doesn't come and dwell into his creation.

00:34:59--> 00:34:59


00:35:00--> 00:35:04

doesn't come and enter into His creation and live in his creation

00:35:05--> 00:35:08

but rather he Socata Horta is hireable

00:35:10--> 00:35:15

six Lee believing that Allah subhanahu Attallah is a law he'll the most Hi

00:35:16--> 00:35:21

this should make one to humble himself before Allahu is high above.

00:35:24--> 00:35:28

And so when you when you really contemplate over

00:35:30--> 00:35:31

your being

00:35:33--> 00:35:36

compared to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:35:38--> 00:35:41

this should really make you to humble yourself.

00:35:43--> 00:35:49

Before ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada when you realize how small and insignificant you are,

00:35:50--> 00:35:57

compared to Allah subhanho wa Taala who is the highest, the most supreme, the greatest?

00:35:59--> 00:36:04

Seven three, believing that Allah subhanho wa Taala is about when the nearest

00:36:06--> 00:36:09

does not mean that he is physically near to us as we mentioned.

00:36:12--> 00:36:14

So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:36:16--> 00:36:27

Oh Allah, you are a dolphin. So there is no nearer than you it does not mean in the physical sense that Allah is near us physically, or he's dwelling within us.

00:36:28--> 00:36:33

But rather it means that Allah subhanho wa Taala although he is high above,

00:36:34--> 00:36:38

he is nearer to us than our own cells, in his knowledge and his sight

00:36:42--> 00:36:44

there is no one near to us

00:36:45--> 00:36:47

in terms of knowing us,

00:36:48--> 00:36:52

then Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And so, he is

00:36:53--> 00:36:55

high while being here.

00:36:57--> 00:37:00

And he is near while being high above.

00:37:01--> 00:37:02

And there is nothing like him.

00:37:05--> 00:37:09

And so we shouldn't try to imagine how this is possible.

00:37:10--> 00:37:17

Why? Because Allah tells us laser committee shape, there is nothing like him. So you cannot even

00:37:18--> 00:37:20

try to imagine how that is.

00:37:21--> 00:37:27

Because somebody may wonder how can Allah be high above? So far, so distinct?

00:37:32--> 00:37:39

Seven Heavens and between each heaven 500 years journey, and then you have the kursi then you have

00:37:41--> 00:37:45

the How to and then you have Allah then how is he

00:37:46--> 00:37:48

new so near to us at the same time.

00:37:51--> 00:37:53

The reason why you cannot

00:37:55--> 00:38:03

imagine that we're the reason why you consider that impossible is because you are comparing a law to his creation.

00:38:06--> 00:38:12

The standard that you're using is what you know, in terms of material things in this world.

00:38:15--> 00:38:20

You're thinking you have a friend across the world in a different part of the world.

00:38:22--> 00:38:24

And he's so far from you.

00:38:27--> 00:38:30

How could he be so near to me knowing what I'm doing.

00:38:32--> 00:38:35

There's no comparison between the creation and Allah.

00:38:36--> 00:38:42

Laser chemical adhesion, there is nothing comparable to him.

00:38:43--> 00:38:46

And so we simply accept Allah's names and attributes as they are

00:38:48--> 00:38:48


00:38:49--> 00:38:53

without, resembling a luxurious creature and without,

00:38:54--> 00:38:55


00:38:57--> 00:39:01

trying to understand how these names and attributes are.

00:39:06--> 00:39:14

Easily believing that Allah subhanho wa Taala is near to us should make us conscious and fearful of him. This is the eventual

00:39:15--> 00:39:19

fruit that we gain from this name of Alberta.

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


00:39:22--> 00:39:33

it should make us to really really be become conscious of Allah and fearful of Allah for he knows about us, what is hidden from others.

00:39:34--> 00:39:42

He knows about us, what is hidden from even the closest people to us. He knows our inner thoughts.

00:39:45--> 00:39:50

And so this should make us to purify our souls from every evil

00:39:51--> 00:39:54

and our hearts from every filth.

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

We shouldn't we should not make Allah subhanahu wa

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


00:40:02--> 00:40:05

the lowest of those who look at us

00:40:07--> 00:40:09

I want to know for greener Elayna

00:40:11--> 00:40:14

we shouldn't make a worse have had the lowest,

00:40:16--> 00:40:18

the most insignificant of those who look at us.

00:40:20--> 00:40:26

We look at people around us, and we do things in a certain way. So they don't think that of us.

00:40:27--> 00:40:29

But then when we're behind closed doors,

00:40:31--> 00:40:40

we don't we do those things. Because we're like, no one's watching me. They're not watching me, not realizing that Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching you.

00:40:43--> 00:40:46

Not only that, but your inner thoughts, as I said,

00:40:48--> 00:40:50

we need to purify

00:40:51--> 00:40:55

our souls internally, and we should not be like

00:40:56--> 00:40:58

nobody knows what's inside me. So who cares?

00:40:59--> 00:41:02

Why have you made a lot the lowest of those who look at me?

00:41:04--> 00:41:05

Why have you

00:41:06--> 00:41:09

elevated others above Allah

00:41:10--> 00:41:11

in terms of

00:41:12--> 00:41:13


00:41:14--> 00:41:15

you are looked at.

00:41:17--> 00:41:19

And so this is the greatest lesson that we learned from

00:41:20--> 00:41:22

this meme of Allah and Barton.

00:41:24--> 00:41:53

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala is watchful of us. He knows our inner secrets, He knows our inner thoughts. And this is especially true when we are standing before Allah subhanho wa Taala Inshallah, we should control our thoughts we shouldn't allow ourselves to wander off, we should realize that a lot is before us. And we are calling upon Allah, we are praying to Allah, we should be in a state of Ashura

00:41:54--> 00:41:56

in the state of

00:41:57--> 00:41:58


00:42:00--> 00:42:02

and attention

00:42:03--> 00:42:10

where we are not allowing ourselves to be carried off by our thoughts because Allah knows our thoughts.

00:42:14--> 00:42:17

He hears our those same thoughts, he hears them

00:42:19--> 00:42:21

and he is ever aware of them.

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


00:42:26--> 00:42:29

these four names are a cure for Delton whisperings

00:42:32--> 00:42:33

dosa come from shaitan

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

and so,

00:42:39--> 00:42:43

one of the companions of Ivanov das or the Allahu Han

00:42:44--> 00:42:46

abou zooming

00:42:48--> 00:42:52

he said to even a bass he said I feel something in my heart

00:42:55--> 00:42:57

so even have this he said, What is it?

00:42:58--> 00:42:59

He said

00:43:00--> 00:43:05

hola hola to Colombia movie. He said I can't say said by Allah.

00:43:07--> 00:43:09

It's not something I could see in front of him.

00:43:11--> 00:43:13

So even ambass He asked them

00:43:14--> 00:43:15

Do you mean don'ts?

00:43:17--> 00:43:19

So he said yes. And so

00:43:20--> 00:43:23

even ambass laughed. And then he said,

00:43:24--> 00:43:26

no one can escape this.

00:43:28--> 00:43:29

And then he recited to him.

00:43:31--> 00:43:32

The first song sort of Tunis

00:43:34--> 00:43:53

verse 94, fight and Quinta, fie Shakima and Xena ileka. First le levena coronal kita Kabylake. La caja can help Kuma Radek. So if you are in dealt or Mohamed concerning that which We have revealed to you, then ask those who are reading the book before you
