Last week we covered Allah's name of a highly
the Most High
and so we spoke about the highness of Allah subhanho wa Taala how he is far high, far above
everyone in everything else.
of Allah's names that are often
mentioned with Ali
and these two are allowed leam and LKB.
and so in AYATUL kursi
while I do shuffle ruhuna where who will highly allow him
he is a highly the most high end allows him
to the Most Great
and Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah Al Hajj Delica the ANOVA who will help well NMI Unum Indonesian adopting an Allahu Allah Ali Al cabbie
and Allah is a highly Nol carry
the most high end,
the most great, the greatest.
And so we'll also add to these two names,
and other name that closely relates in meaning to L cubic. And that is unlimited. It also comes from the same root word as l KB.
So tonight in sha Allah who can either we're gonna quickly go over these three names, allow him
l Kevin LKB. And element a capital
S for Allah when it has been mentioned nine times in the Quran
and so we mentioned
AYATUL kursi Allah who do have a luna who will hire legal Erwin, also in order to work
in verse 96, Allah subhanahu wa Tada says, for subbing this me Robbie Keller have him for sabich This mural decal Halloween so exalt the Name of your Lord, a lovely,
the most great and this is similar to what we mentioned last week.
of Allah's Name will Allah
sub behaves Murat Beckel?
here is the same the same idea. The only difference is these two names have been changed. Allow we met Al Al
and assorted healthcare Allah subhanho wa Taala says about
the one who receives his book of deeds in his left hand on the Day of Judgment.
Allah describes him
to Anam an OT Akita who will be seen early among the descriptions Allah mentions about him in who can allow you know dilla Hill Avi.
He never used to believe in Allah allows me
the most great so these are some of the places in the Quran where Allah Alim is mentioned. As for LKB
it's been mentioned six times in the Quran
one time you mentioned and sorts of hedge verse 62, where I'm in Allahu Allah Ali, al Qaeda.
Also Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and this name we mentioned last week, I'll move their hand
which also means the high
in Surah to rot. Allah says Heidi Mulleavy was shahada, LKB al Maha
al Kabir and Muhtar. So again al Kabir is B
You mentioned with the highness of Allah.
Also Allah subhanho wa Taala says and sort of Tunis that again also we mentioned this verse last week
because it mentions Ali
so in Atlanta comfortable alienness Avira if your wives
improve their conduct do not
do not transgress and oppress them in the war Hi Cana, i Li Yun Kabira.
Allah is a highly in LKB
that's where I'm with a cat bear.
It's only been mentioned once in the Quran
and that is where Allah mentioned several of his names in order to Russia, at the end of circle hasher.
And so ALLAH says who Allahu Ledi La ilaha illa who l Mellie Calaca do so salah. Minami Mohini, Nola, Azizullah Jabba, neuter Kabir.
So moto Kabir, as mentioned here,
in salted hash
as for the meanings of these names, and how we and I'll carry both mean, the most great
or the greatest.
But there has to be a difference between the two.
And there is a subtle difference between the two. And so even Taymiyah he mentioned this.
He says that when we say Allahu Akbar,
Allah is the Greatest, we affirm a laws have them
which is a large greatness.
But the album of Allah the name from Havana is on Halloween.
So how is it that when you're saying Oh, Allahu Akbar,
the Hazama of Allah, the greatness of Allah.
Shouldn't it be Allahu Allah them
should not be Allah whoever he says. Even Taymiyah says, when you say Allahu Akbar, you're affirming the Aldona of Allah and Kibriya is included in Alhama.
So the name can be, the name can be
the attribute of his Kibriya the name of the attribute for his or her.
He says, however, Kibriya is more complete.
He says Allahu Akbar
is more complete than saying Allahu aza.
And he quotes the Hadith in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in Hadith good see, where Allah says, l Kibriya. Reader, he will also know to his
feminine Naza anywhere hidden in Hoonah. For closer to
Allah says, pride is my cloak.
greatness is my robe, a lover. So whoever competes with me concerning any of these two things, then I will throw him in the hellfire.
He goes on to say so Allah made Algoma lake, a robe,
and Kibriya like a cloak.
And it's well known that a cloak is more honorable than a rope.
So since tech bead is more expressive than Taleem, when you say Allahu Akbar, it's more expressive than saying Allahu azim. Therefore, Allah uses Allahu Akbar, rather than Allah, Allah.
And so when you say Allah, Allah put it includes the meaning of Allahu Allah.
So that's the difference between the two. As for Alberta, Kabir
it means that Allah is the supremely great
the exalted above his creation,
who is far greater than having any of the qualities of His creation, who is far greater than having any evil quality
who is far above being harmed by the oppressor, oppressors among his creation,
whose greatness and pride or discipline
And so, among the meanings of
Elementor cap there is someone who's great
and he shows that he's great
so that includes pride.
And Allah subhanahu Italie deserves to be proud.
when someone claims to be or when someone feels proud, he either deserves it or it's artificial.
And Allah subhanahu wa Tada deserves, while others, they don't deserve it. Why? Because they don't have attributes of perfection.
all of his attributes or attributes are perfection. Therefore he is the greatest and he deserves. He deserves to be proud.
So what does it mean that Allah subhanahu Attallah is
can be together camp.
Allah being described with greatness
includes two things. Firstly,
he is great in his attributes
and he is great in his very being.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala has all attributes of greatness, like
authority, like power, like might,
and he is also greater than everything and everyone besides
a greatness that has no limit
and cannot be comprehended.
And we spoke about this last week when we spoke about Allah Beihai above his creation
and how the greatest
of Allah's creation is the highest, which is what, what did we mentioned last week?
What was the highest of Allah's creation and also the greatest
the Throne of Allah,
the Throne of Allah expands this entire creation, with the earth and the heavens and everything. The Throne of Allah is like the roof of Allah's creation.
And a lot is above his throne.
So while we can
while we can say that the troll,
even though it's so huge, and great, we can limit it, and we can say it has. It has limits.
Allah subhanho wa Taala above that throne has no limit.
His greatness has no limit.
And so we can ever try to imagine the greatness of Allah.
Allah is so great that He is beyond even our imagination.
Whatever we try to imagine of Allah's greatness, a lot is more superior than that imagination.
It has no limit.
So it wasn't Hannah who would Tala
alluding to his greatness, he says, well, todo la Hakata.
Well all do gemmy tadoba To who Yeoman Tia
was salmonella to Matsuya can be I mean,
they have not shown a lot
the proper reverence that he deserves
when on the Day of Judgment, the entire Earth will be in his grip, and the heavens will be rolled up in his right hand.
Even our bass, probably Allah I'm explaining this he says
that the seven heavens and the earth
are in Allah's hand, like a small mustard seed in one of your hands.
That is the greatness of Allah.
Again, without any limit
and without any comparison without us being able to fully comprehend it.
So this was the first thing that the greatness of Allah
includes the second
thing is, that no one deserves to be described with greatness,
with veneration with the other man
with reverence other than Allah.
So Allah is the only one who deserves our utmost veneration
reverence, honor in our hearts, on our tongues,
and in our actions.
And that is the very essence of a bad the very essence of worship
is this is this feeling of Azama,
of holding the one you're worshiping,
as being great
in your heart. And so whenever someone worships anyone or anything, they have that in their heart.
A person who worships an idol,
he has this reverence in his heart, this veneration for that idol in his art.
Those who worship idols, those who worship Eastside Islam, those who worship the angels, whatever someone worships, they have this feeling in their heart of own respect,
reverence and greatness,
for that object of worship,
and so, whenever we direct it to others,
whenever we direct this feeling of Algoma, for others, we have taken them as gods besides.
And that is basically shift.
associating partners with Allah subhanahu wata.
Now moving on to the lessons that we learned from these names, and how the human Kebede and then what to do.
First of all,
believing that Allah subhanahu Attallah is the greatest.
It should make one two, as we mentioned, venerate
and honor Allah with the veneration and the honor that he deserves.
And so that includes believing in Him and not disbelieving in Him,
obeying Him and not disobeying Him,
surrendering to His commandments, and not objecting to any of them.
Surrendering to what Allah has commanded. Well, he has forbidden without objecting. Without saying,
you know, why has Allah commanded this? Why has he forbidden this, if you truly believed in a law being the greatest, you wouldn't dare to object.
Likewise, it includes venerating what Allah has venerated
honoring what Allah has honored.
As Allah subhanahu wa Tada says, in certain hedge,
that he can woman you have him SHA Euro la heathyr enamel taco Kulu.
That is so and whoever honors
the symbols of Allah, then it is certain certainly out of the taqwa of his heart.
And before that, Allah says, Italica will let you Alvim through not to lie
for a higher level and
whoever honors venerates, the sanctities of Allah
then it is best for them in the sight of their Lord.
The second lesson that we learn from these names is
this could be you that we say
when we say Allahu Akbar,
it is one of the unique phrases
of the Muslims
and so we use it in different acts of worship
on different occasions,
and so we say it through our salah.
We say it
on Eighth after the completion of
the either the fasting the month of Ramadan, and on Hajj on that occasion
and in Jihad
when you're climbing up going upwards, climbing a mountain or going up series, you say Allahu Akbar, reminding yourself of the greatness of Allah, that no matter how high you go, Allah is great.
And so all of these occasions and each one of these places where we say Allahu Akbar,
they are meant to remind us
Allah is the Greatest, and there is no one greater than Allah. And so if we were to just contemplate in our salah,
think about when you are standing before Allah and you're about to say Allahu Akbar.
Contemplate over that Allah is the Greatest. So that means that Allah is even greater.
Then all of my thoughts, and all of my problems, many of us we have a problem, or we struggle with her shoe and our sole focus and attentiveness in our Salah. So our mind wanders off, especially when we have something pressing,
we're going through something.
those thoughts are on our minds, even in our salah, remind yourself of what you're saying, when you say Allahu Akbar, Allah is the Greatest, he is greater than all of my problems.
And if I turn to him with an attentive heart,
humbling myself before Him, then He will even solve all my problems.
And so whenever we say Allahu Akbar, we should be thinking of the meaning of it. And why we say when we say it.
The third lesson that we learned from these names is
that recalling the greatness of Allah, it makes us to look down
on the greatness of others,
no matter who they are,
no matter who they are. And this
is something that only the true servants of Allah,
when they are in front of people who are considered great, they don't care about that.
It doesn't matter to them. Why? Because they know that Allah is greater.
And this reminds us of the story of one of the companions
by the name of read the enamel, for the long run.
And so when the Muslims arrived at the outskirts of the Persian Empire, this is after the death of the Prophet sallallahu even send them
the governor of the Persians
requested them to send in an envoy,
someone who they could talk to
so the Muslim sent
read the Lebanon, you know, the long run
as the leader of this envoy.
So when he arrived,
he found that the court of
this ruler, his name was Rustom. He found that his palace and his court had been decorated.
So there were cushions. There was gold, there were rugs of silk,
even Rustom was dressed up
were the most expensive of garments and sat on a throne of of gold.
So, read the he had been hammered on the Allaha he enters, wearing
having his shield in his hand
and having a small horse, he enters
and he gets off of his
off of his horse
and still wearing his armor. He enters and the guards tell him to take it off.
He says no, I'm not gonna take it off.
So after that
he asks, rebellion hammer. What is it that brings you here?
So rebury Radovan? He replies, he says, that we haven't come on our own accord.
But rather Allah has sent us
to remove those whom He wills from the slavery of man to the slavery of Allah to remove them from the narrowness of this dunya to its vast
and from the oppression of religions, to the justice of Islam,
by giving us his religion, Allah has sent us to call all of mankind to it, Whoever accepts it will accept it from them and leave him alone. But whoever refuses, then we will fight them until we attain the Promise of Allah.
imagine rib or even hammer is standing in front of one of the heads of the superpowers of the world at that time. And he's talking to him in this way.
Rusco he asks me, you know, what is this promise of Allah?
So read that he replies, he says, It is Jenna.
For those who die,
or victory for those who remain alive.
Roustan he says, Okay, we've heard what you have to say,
Now, give us some time to think about it.
So read there, he asks.
Again, I mean, look at how this conversation is going.
They didn't just leave it at that. He said, How much time do you need?
Rustom said, we need to repeat Yes. How much time do you need a day or two days?
Rustom. He said, We need three days. So he said, our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has not allowed us that when we meet their enemies to give them
more than three days. Respect.
think about it, and get back to us within three days.
Roustan then he asks,
you know, astonished at this individual, he says, Are you the leader of your people?
That if he says no.
He says no, rather, all the Muslims are like a single body.
And then roast them. He says he gathers all of his leaders. And
he asks, Have you heard of words more powerful,
and yet as gentle as those of this man?
So they thought that he was impressed.
And he was going to give in? So they said, How dare you? How dare you forsake your religion for that dog? Did you see his clothing?
So then Rustom, he said, shame on you. Do not look at the clothing, but rather look at the speech and the personality.
And so in the end,
they didn't accept the proposal.
And so, history recorded one of the greatest battles
that ever took place.
And that was the battle known as a call to Syria
in which the Muslims small in size defeated
and brought down one of the greatest empires in the world at that time.
The lesson from that story that we learned is what I mentioned in the very beginning, and that is that when one recalls the greatness of Allah,
it makes him to look down
on the greatness of others, no matter who they are.
No matter who they are, they are low
in his sight, when he recalls the greatness of Allah subhanahu wa, and that's what they didn't know you had been a hammer displayed.
He didn't care who he was standing in front of, because he knew that a lot is far greater than him.
The next lesson that we learned from these names is that recalling the greatness of Allah
helps us to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala and not dare disobey Him.
And so most people they sin
because this greatness of Allah
is is absent from their minds.
And so, there are some who even look down
at their sin
and consider it as being insignificant.
you should not look down you should not look at the insignificance or how small the sin is but rather look at
how great the one you're disobeying
this is what this name are these names of Allah teach us the greatness of Allah
to not look at how small your sinners but how great the one you're disobeying
and so Allah subhanahu wa Tada
says, in sort of tenacity at
what Anam and Hawthorne Academy he was a member when I'm in Hoffa Nakamura be one of them Neff Sanyal Hawa for Inogen Netta. He'll
ask for the one who fears standing before his Lord.
And he prevents himself from following the desires of his neffs
what has a lot promised him Jen?
Jenna will be his home.
So who is this person who fears standing before his Lord?
Even Mr. Rude he explains it he says that this refers to a person
who is about to commit a sin.
And then he recalls standing before Allah on the day of judgment.
And so he prevents himself from following his whims and his desires.
And even Mr. Udo Viola and he says that a believer sees his sins. He looks at his sins.
Like he is sitting at the base of a mountain that is about to collapse on him. His sins are so great. He looks at his sins as being great because of the greatness of the one who he disobeyed.
On the other hand, the wicked person looks at his sins, like a fly that passes over his nose.
And he wipes it away with his hand. Like it's not a big deal.
He does this, it's not a big deal. It's insignificant.
So when you recall the greatness of Allah, that Allah is so great,
how dear I disobeyed Him.
And that's why some people if they were to see, for example,
someone who they consider as being great, they wouldn't do certain things in front of them.
Why? Because of that greatness
that they have in their hearts for that person
or that authority.
They won't dare commit certain crimes in front of the police.
So how about Allah subhanahu wa Tada.
It's a when you recall the greatness of Allah, he helps you to fear him.
And fear His punishment
because of the greatness of who he is.
the lesson that we learned from Allah's Name, to Kabir
is that a cowboy, which means
to be proud, is something only Allah subhanho wa Taala deserves because he possesses the qualities for that.
And so Allah is actually great.
And so he deserves to be proud for who he is.
Whereas the creation, no matter how high they become,
they still have qualities that are low.
So they don't deserve
to feel proud.
Especially when it comes to Allah.
And the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala
one of the reasons why people refuse to submit is
They don't want to submit to the commandments of Allah because they feel above too proud.
And that was the sin of the bliss.
Allah told him to prostrate and he refused. Why? Because he felt proud. He said I'm better than him.
And likewise, Allah subhanahu wa Tada has told us, that those
who are too proud to submit they will have the world
in the laziness that could be Runa and ADA that he said Haruna, Johanna metatheory those who
those who are too proud to worship me.
They will be in hellfire humbled.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us
that on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanahu wa taala will fold up the heavens and then he will place them on his right hand. And he will say, NL Malik, I am the king.
anal jabbar rune Anan with a combi rule, where are the tyrants? Where are the proud
those who are too proud
to submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala
they're basically following in the footsteps of the police
and so they will have one of the worst punishments on the Day of Judgment.
So we ask Allah subhanahu wa Tada
to grant us beneficial knowledge
and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala
to allow us to learn about Him through His names and his attributes that will lead that will lead us to putting that knowledge into practice.
