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

I'm

00:00:13--> 00:00:15

interested in Europe the irony

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

so that was sent me a letter man let me run for something that he originally

00:00:23--> 00:00:35

he was sorry he was a minister that we had you extended as soon as he lied to me Dean alumni aluminum and several now when found out Dina Turner was eat dinner

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

or even look at where you're at no doubt about it and what is up Mitch Pineda? which angered me man yesterday Aruna Tolliver tibial nerve center, Amin Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

00:00:58--> 00:01:00

During the month of Ramadan, we

00:01:02--> 00:01:08

were on to select those names of Allah subhanho wa Taala that were related to

00:01:11--> 00:01:16

Ramadan in particular related to Allah subhanho wa Taala being

00:01:17--> 00:01:24

the one who listens the one who hears the one who answers the door is the one who forgives

00:01:25--> 00:01:30

the One Who accepts repentance the one who is the Most Generous One who gives etc.

00:01:31--> 00:01:42

And before the month of Ramadan, we had covered names related to Allah's power and His might. And so I thought

00:01:45--> 00:01:48

we would continue on to three last names related to that

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

before moving on to

00:01:52--> 00:01:59

other things that have other beautiful meanings. And so the three names that were remaining

00:02:01--> 00:02:06

or al Qadir al Qadir and Octavia Aloha

00:02:08--> 00:02:11

al Qadir and I looked at it

00:02:14--> 00:02:19

and so, all these three names come from the same root word

00:02:20--> 00:02:24

and the attribute of Al Qudra.

00:02:26--> 00:02:30

For Allah's ability, and the lost power.

00:02:34--> 00:02:45

As for encoded now all three have been mentioned the Quran, as we're unclouded, it has been mentioned 12 times in the Quran, and COVID.

00:02:47--> 00:02:51

Seven of those times it has been mentioned in the singular form

00:02:53--> 00:02:54

in a singular form

00:02:56--> 00:03:00

while five times it has been mentioned in the plural form.

00:03:04--> 00:03:06

And so when we say singular we mean accordion.

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

And when we say plural mean,

00:03:10--> 00:03:11

I'll call the rune.

00:03:13--> 00:03:18

So for example, in terms of the singular form Allah subhanho wa Taala says in sort of

00:03:19--> 00:03:32

a verse 65, cool, who will call you and yada yada la comunidad and then for people Oh, entirety of Dhulikhel el el de second Xiang where you live Kabir Agricole, baxa

00:03:34--> 00:03:39

say that He alone has the power of God

00:03:40--> 00:03:51

to unleash upon you a punishment from above or below you or split you into factions fighting one another, and make you taste the violence of one another.

00:03:54--> 00:04:19

So, this is the singular form akattak and it has been mentioned several times as for the plural form, and cardroom. For example, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah, Minjun what in Allah and mediocre now now you do a law called the rule for inner Allah and Nuria. Now you do.

00:04:20--> 00:04:23

Laqad you rune in suits, noon, verse 95.

00:04:24--> 00:04:39

That we are indeed able to show you Oh Mohammed, what we have threatened them with a punishment. So Allah is Able to show the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what he has prepared for the disbelievers.

00:04:41--> 00:04:42

He's able to do that.

00:04:43--> 00:04:48

So Allah is informing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that he is able to do that.

00:04:50--> 00:04:55

Now what does it mean when it was a character who attacked or describes himself in the plural form?

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

And this is an objection that many times

00:05:01--> 00:05:02

critics of Islam will raise

00:05:04--> 00:05:07

and say look, your book describes

00:05:08--> 00:05:12

Allah as being plural as having partners.

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

So to answer this, we say that Allah subhanho wa Taala whenever he describes himself in the plural sense in the Quran,

00:05:22--> 00:05:24

in the Arabic language,

00:05:25--> 00:05:27

you can describe

00:05:28--> 00:05:30

a person in the singular form.

00:05:31--> 00:05:32

And

00:05:33--> 00:05:46

that an A person can also be described in the plural form. And when a person is described in the plural form, it indicates greatness indicates greatness of that person.

00:05:47--> 00:05:48

Of that being

00:05:50--> 00:05:53

and this is not something exclusive to the Arabic language.

00:05:54--> 00:05:56

You have this in many languages.

00:05:57--> 00:05:58

In fact, even in English,

00:05:59--> 00:06:02

it is used, it is called the royal week.

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

So kings and queens, they use it

00:06:07--> 00:06:12

for they address their nations, the news week, and it's one person

00:06:14--> 00:06:17

so ALLAH SubhanA, who had to Allah describes himself in the Quran,

00:06:19--> 00:06:21

in the plural form as club rule.

00:06:23--> 00:06:24

And this is to show his greatness

00:06:25--> 00:06:26

and that's where Al Khadim

00:06:28--> 00:06:34

this are the three names of God and studied and looked at it. This is the one that has been mentioned the most

00:06:35--> 00:06:39

are coded and so it has been mentioned 45 times and

00:06:41--> 00:06:48

it has been mentioned 45 times in the Quran, and most times it has been mentioned as a one subhanho wa Taala

00:06:49--> 00:06:56

telling us that He is all powerful over everything in Allah Allah cliche in Kaduna.

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

What kind of Allahu Allah cliche in Khedira.

00:07:03--> 00:07:13

So, throughout the Quran, we find this was a friend who tried to tell him it us that he is most capable or most powerful over everything.

00:07:15--> 00:07:16

That's what I looked at it.

00:07:18--> 00:07:21

It has only been mentioned four times in the program.

00:07:23--> 00:07:38

And so an example and sorbitol come up. At the very end, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Athena fee Jannette in one Aha, that, indeed the Matakohe will be amid Gardens and Rivers.

00:07:40--> 00:07:46

I mean, generally you can see knock it you say the same thing generally can look at

00:07:47--> 00:07:50

the NOC, I didn't say the pin, right there. Well, you can look

00:07:51--> 00:08:00

at the seat of honor, in the presence of Al Malik the most power of the sovereign, and Moqtada

00:08:01--> 00:08:03

the most powerful, so the most powerful software.

00:08:04--> 00:08:07

And Al Malik is a name that we already covered previously.

00:08:09--> 00:08:10

When we talked about

00:08:11--> 00:08:17

those names related to it was Malik, Al Malik, Al Malik, and Malik.

00:08:19--> 00:08:23

So what do they what do these names mean? Obviously, they all

00:08:25--> 00:08:28

they are all related to Allah's pudiera

00:08:29--> 00:08:32

his power, his ability, that has no limits.

00:08:36--> 00:08:44

And so they teach us that Allah subhanahu Attallah has complete ability, complete power to do what He wills as he pleases.

00:08:45--> 00:08:49

And it is through Allah squadra

00:08:50--> 00:08:51

through his

00:08:52--> 00:08:58

ability and power, that he brought existence into being from nothing.

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

It is through Allah's Qudra that he created the heavens and the earth

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

in six days, as he tells us,

00:09:08--> 00:09:10

well, now I'm gonna send him in lieu.

00:09:11--> 00:09:14

And if you think that,

00:09:16--> 00:09:40

you know, creating the heavens and the earth will cause some kind of fatigue, then Allah negates that right away. Well, ma'am, is Sena Milla who know fatigue touched Us. And this is because as the Christians and the Jews claim that Allah rested on the seventh stage. So to refute this claim, Allah right away says, well, now Masada will lose. And so this affirms

00:09:42--> 00:09:44

this attribute of the Quadra of Allah,

00:09:45--> 00:09:47

that in our site.

00:09:49--> 00:10:00

Meaning according to Arizona, well, Janelle, the Quadro of Allah is all encompassing, and it comes with no tiredness, no fatigue whatsoever.

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

whether

00:10:02--> 00:10:08

it is through the Quran of Allah subhanahu or to Allah that He perfected all of the creation in the manner that we see it.

00:10:11--> 00:10:19

Wherever you look in the creation of Allah, whether it be in the cosmos, whether it be within yourself as a human being and your different systems

00:10:20--> 00:10:23

that operate in your body, before you find

00:10:25--> 00:10:26

a perfect, precise

00:10:28--> 00:10:30

creation, that is unmatched.

00:10:31--> 00:10:34

Where does this come from? It comes from the Qudra of Allah.

00:10:36--> 00:10:46

It is from The Quadra of Allah subhanahu, WA Tirana, that he not only created us, but then he continuously provides for us and supports his creation.

00:10:47--> 00:10:54

It is through the Quran of Allah subhanho wa Taala that none is able to escape

00:10:55--> 00:10:58

or hide from him for escape from his grip.

00:11:02--> 00:11:09

It is from the Quadro of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he brings the creation to an end eventually.

00:11:10--> 00:11:19

And so he gives life as he also takes it away. And then he brings that same life back into being.

00:11:21--> 00:11:26

He brings that same light back into being and that will be on your piano.

00:11:28--> 00:11:33

And as Allah Himself mentions that the second

00:11:34--> 00:11:37

creation or resurrection

00:11:38--> 00:11:40

is, as Allah says,

00:11:41--> 00:11:44

One rally, it's even more easier.

00:11:45--> 00:11:55

If you think that that's something impossible. As the moose raccoon throughout the parabola tells us that this is their main objection. They constantly say

00:11:56--> 00:11:59

either couldn't to rob them.

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

Or a woman in a movie as soon after we become Dustin bones is possible that we will be resurrected. Throughout the Quran, Allah tells us this objection of theirs. And so

00:12:16--> 00:12:19

Allah subhanho wa Taala clearly explains that

00:12:21--> 00:12:25

he created us from nothing and logically logically

00:12:26--> 00:12:30

creating us or resurrecting us should be easier.

00:12:31--> 00:12:32

This is

00:12:34--> 00:12:37

in human terms, not

00:12:38--> 00:12:44

according to Allah, meaning that for Allah Nothing is difficult, nothing is more easier than another.

00:12:45--> 00:12:46

For Allah it's all the same.

00:12:47--> 00:12:51

For Allah there's nothing more easier or more difficult than another thing.

00:12:53--> 00:12:58

And this again also comes from Allah email cardio Khedira looked at

00:12:59--> 00:13:07

but Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions this, to wake up these ignorant mushy, Kuhn that look

00:13:10--> 00:13:26

if you think that this is something difficult, then how about the fact that you came into existence from nothing, that should be more difficult than bringing life back to bringing life back into being after it once existed after once existed.

00:13:28--> 00:13:35

Also these names of Allah subhanho wa Taala come from the root word of Cloudera.

00:13:39--> 00:13:45

And other in the context of Allah subhanahu wata, Allah means his decree

00:13:46--> 00:13:54

his predestination, which is one of the six pillars of Eman belief in Elkader.

00:13:56--> 00:14:02

Believe in Al Qaeda, and the stages that every single creation goes through

00:14:03--> 00:14:08

to come into existence from nothing or for four stages.

00:14:11--> 00:14:18

From the from the very beginning, until the time they come into existence, your horse stages and these four stages

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

are known as multiple products

00:14:23--> 00:14:26

or the stages of clutter that were mentioned by

00:14:28--> 00:14:31

the seller. And the scholars have letters similar ones.

00:14:32--> 00:14:37

They mentioned that the stages of color are for and so they are

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

L

00:14:40--> 00:14:45

knowledge, l Kitara. The written decree

00:14:46--> 00:14:51

and mushiya the will and Hello, the creation

00:14:54--> 00:14:56

so to put this into context,

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

these four stages

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

His knowledge,

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

the written decree,

00:15:07--> 00:15:11

the will of Allah and the creation.

00:15:12--> 00:15:17

Allah subhanho wa Taala knew he had knowledge. So he wrote it down.

00:15:20--> 00:15:24

Obviously, when we talk about the knowledge of the law, we're talking about the pre eternal knowledge

00:15:26--> 00:15:30

that has no beginning. So Allah knew from the pre eternal class.

00:15:32--> 00:15:34

And so he wrote down

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

what will happen?

00:15:38--> 00:15:51

As the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that the first thing that Allah created was a pen, and he commanded it to rate. So the pen asks, What should I write? So Allah said, Write everything that will happen until the last day.

00:15:54--> 00:15:59

So Allah knew that if he wrote it down, then he will for its creation,

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

He will

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

for it to be created.

00:16:04--> 00:16:08

So nothing happens outside of the will of Allah.

00:16:09--> 00:16:10

And then he created

00:16:11--> 00:16:23

and then he brought that thing into existence. So these are the four stages of codified knowledge, the written decree, the will and the creation.

00:16:25--> 00:16:36

So all three names of Allah al Qadir, Al Qadir, NL Moqtada include these meanings of cada include these four stages of production.

00:16:37--> 00:16:41

And so, Allah subhanahu, WA Tada is

00:16:42--> 00:16:45

an order Allah condition, he is

00:16:47--> 00:16:48

capable over everything

00:16:49--> 00:16:54

over that which he does, and that which he doesn't do.

00:16:55--> 00:17:03

He is powerful, and capable of doing what he does, and also of doing that which he doesn't do.

00:17:05--> 00:17:09

So whatever Allah has willed, it must happen without a doubt.

00:17:10--> 00:17:18

Whatever Allah has willed for to happen, it will happen without a doubt. And whatever he does not will, it will never happen.

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

Whatever he has not willed,

00:17:22--> 00:17:24

it will never happened.

00:17:25--> 00:17:29

But notice here, why will it not happen?

00:17:32--> 00:17:35

Will it not happen because he is incapable?

00:17:36--> 00:17:40

No, but rather simply because you didn't go for a topic

00:17:41--> 00:17:44

simply because he did not willed for it to happen.

00:17:45--> 00:17:50

So this is how we understand the code of Allah, it has to include these four things.

00:17:52--> 00:17:57

And the will of Allah is one of these for the will of Allah is one of these four. So,

00:17:59--> 00:18:22

Allah has power to do that which he does, that which He wills and he also has the power to do that which will never happen, but not because of inability, but rather simply because he did not Wilfer to happen. All of this shows us that Allah is an cardif that Allah is a Catholic, ask for what Allah has willed for to happen

00:18:24--> 00:18:26

and written that it must happen.

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

So now, we leave aside that which Allah has not willed for tapping.

00:18:35--> 00:18:38

Ask for that which Allah has willed that it must happen

00:18:39--> 00:18:41

then he is Al Qadir

00:18:43--> 00:18:44

he is unclear to make it happen.

00:18:46--> 00:18:48

He is described as being an Kadir

00:18:49--> 00:18:52

to make it happen without any difficulty

00:18:54--> 00:18:57

without anything preventing him SubhanaHu Attallah

00:18:58--> 00:19:00

from making it to happen.

00:19:02--> 00:19:10

So, Allah is recorded, this is related to his will, he has willed for whatever to happen

00:19:11--> 00:19:14

to happen the way he has willed it, he is accorded

00:19:15--> 00:19:18

the most powerful to make it happen.

00:19:21--> 00:19:24

Now, when it comes to the time of the creation, when it comes

00:19:25--> 00:19:31

to the point in time when that thing will happen or that thing will be created.

00:19:34--> 00:19:36

When it comes time for it, a lot is unlocked.

00:19:38--> 00:19:43

A lot is multiplayer, which emphasizes his supreme power

00:19:44--> 00:19:51

to enforce or to enact whatever he has decided at once without any hesitation without doing

00:19:53--> 00:19:58

so now at the time when it will happen it was described as a tragic

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

and so what we

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

What we see from all of this is that there's a difference between these three names of Allah in this sense. Otherwise, they all mean the same thing.

00:20:08--> 00:20:11

But if we want to find a subtle difference between these three names,

00:20:12--> 00:20:24

and the names of Allah subhanho, wa Taala each and every single one of them have their own exclusive meaning. You can't say that they all mean the same thing. There has to be some difference. And so

00:20:25--> 00:20:31

al Qadir is more profound and more stronger in conveying the Qudra of Allah dental cardio.

00:20:33--> 00:20:36

Cardio is more profound,

00:20:37--> 00:20:47

more stronger, emphasizing the Qudra of Allah than al Qaeda. And Al Mukhtar there is even stronger than that.

00:20:49--> 00:20:52

And Octavia is even stronger.

00:20:53--> 00:20:55

What they say in Arabic as being a block

00:20:56--> 00:21:02

in conveying the Quran of Allah subhanahu wa and that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala uses and

00:21:04--> 00:21:05

in the context of

00:21:07--> 00:21:08

mentioning his punishments,

00:21:10--> 00:21:11

and he sees in

00:21:12--> 00:21:13

the enemies

00:21:19--> 00:21:20

as he mentioned with regards to Fidel

00:21:23--> 00:21:25

and as he mentioned

00:21:30--> 00:21:35

in reference to some of the nations of the past that he destroyed,

00:21:36--> 00:21:38

that he would take them sees them

00:21:41--> 00:21:43

as even more pathetic,

00:21:44--> 00:21:46

after their eyes even looked at it,

00:21:48--> 00:21:50

to emphasize that power of Allah,

00:21:52--> 00:21:56

that, you know, they shouldn't think that they have any chance of escaping

00:21:57--> 00:22:00

from the grip of Allah and the power of Allah subhana wa.

00:22:03--> 00:22:09

So, coming down to what these names teach us the lessons that we learn from these names, first and foremost.

00:22:11--> 00:22:15

Allah's Qudra is not something difficult to establish.

00:22:16--> 00:22:24

The Quran of Allah is not something difficult to prove, for anyone who believes in Allah subhana, whatever.

00:22:25--> 00:22:28

And so anyone who believes in the existence of God

00:22:29--> 00:22:31

believes that he is

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

the all powerful,

00:22:36--> 00:22:38

omnipotent, omnipotent,

00:22:40--> 00:22:45

which is a quality and attribute that is used to describe Allah in almost all religions.

00:22:49--> 00:23:14

And so anyone who believes that all there is an existence was created by a creator, they must believe that this creator is described as having limitless power and ability that is indescribable, that is beyond any power of any creative beings. And so Allah's Qudra

00:23:15--> 00:23:19

is an attribute of Allah's very essence and his very being.

00:23:23--> 00:23:25

It is because of who Allah is.

00:23:26--> 00:23:32

So you don't you don't need any anyone to come and tell you that Allah is the most powerful

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

it's something that you could logically deduce.

00:23:41--> 00:23:51

Although, we, as a listener will deny what do we say when it comes to Allah's names and attributes, we don't rely on logic independently.

00:23:54--> 00:24:03

So we're not allowed to attribute to Allah, something that he has not attributed to himself simply from our own intellect.

00:24:05--> 00:24:12

But when you come down to it, this is an attribute of a law that can be deduced by logical.

00:24:14--> 00:24:17

The second lesson that we learn from these names

00:24:18--> 00:24:26

is that believing in these names of a lot of cardio and cardio doctor should make you to resort to Allah

00:24:27--> 00:24:28

to turn to Him

00:24:29--> 00:24:31

for all of your needs,

00:24:32--> 00:24:36

putting your trust and Tawakkol in Allah Alone.

00:24:38--> 00:24:41

And that is because He alone is the all powerful

00:24:43--> 00:24:44

the all capable

00:24:45--> 00:24:52

over everything and nothing is impossible for him to turn who with a hand and us were created beings.

00:24:53--> 00:24:57

As were created beings, no matter how powerful they are,

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

in the end of the day there

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

Power your ability is limited.

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

And

00:25:06--> 00:25:10

creative beings are described as being incapable

00:25:13--> 00:25:16

as being powerless, at times,

00:25:17--> 00:25:19

even the most powerful and mighty of people,

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

there comes a time when they are described as being incapable of doing certain things, and being powerless and also not to forget that they are prone to death.

00:25:33--> 00:25:34

They are prone to death.

00:25:36--> 00:25:42

Whereas that is not the case with the last paragraph or two. So, why would you rely

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

on

00:25:45--> 00:25:50

the powerless created beings when you could rely on

00:25:51--> 00:25:56

the most powerful Creator Allah subhana which is this is why

00:25:58--> 00:25:59

you can have Deus probably a lot more Hoonah

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

narrates that he was with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the famous Hadith. He says I was young, and I was sitting behind the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on his, on his right in camera.

00:26:16--> 00:26:19

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Yahoo

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

will lie.

00:26:23--> 00:26:25

Oh, young one.

00:26:28--> 00:26:31

Be mindful of Allah and He will protect you.

00:26:32--> 00:26:35

For we learn to read who to

00:26:36--> 00:26:40

be mindful of Allah and ye and you shall find him in front of you.

00:26:41--> 00:26:49

What he does, what he does to LTFS and Allah and anytime he asked for anything, ask Allah.

00:26:51--> 00:27:02

Anytime you ask for anything, ask Allah. What this refers to in the law in any time that you seek help. Seek help from Allah.

00:27:04--> 00:27:19

Golden pieces of advice from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in greening within this young companion, these meetings of being connected to Allah subhanho wa taala, and not being connected to the creation,

00:27:21--> 00:27:31

being connected to Allah, and not being connected to the creation of Allah subhanahu Evanna when it comes to our needs and necessities,

00:27:34--> 00:27:36

also what we find in the dua

00:27:37--> 00:27:38

of istikhara.

00:27:41--> 00:27:47

Is the horror is something that the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam taught us to do, when we're uncertain of something.

00:27:51--> 00:27:53

And the reason for our uncertainty

00:27:55--> 00:27:56

is

00:27:57--> 00:27:58

our inability,

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

our power, this nature

00:28:03--> 00:28:06

and our lack of knowledge

00:28:07--> 00:28:08

of the future.

00:28:09--> 00:28:13

So in the dua of is the heart of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:28:15--> 00:28:17

mentioned two qualities of Allah

00:28:19--> 00:28:22

and they are Qudra and

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

so what is it to organise the Hora Allama in the US if you look at

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

the hill mica

00:28:33--> 00:28:34

Oh ALLAH.

00:28:36--> 00:28:44

I seek your counsel, I consult you through your knowledge.

00:28:45--> 00:28:59

I consult you through your knowledge, what Estelle could do, Kev, you could erotica and I seek your strength as I seek strength and power through your strength through your power.

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

What does it mean for Brickell? How when and I asked him from the great down to there in Mecca Kadena wala cocktail, for indeed you are capable, and I'm incapable.

00:29:14--> 00:29:31

What Tallinn we want to Allah. And you know, and I don't know when to Allah knows who you are, and you are the knower of everything, the Knower of the unseen of the hidden things. So here in this dua, you are basically

00:29:34--> 00:29:37

acknowledging your powerless nature

00:29:39--> 00:29:40

while affirming

00:29:41--> 00:29:45

the power and the knowledge of Allah subhanahu italiana

00:29:46--> 00:29:49

and that's why you're consulting a lot that Oh, Allah helped me to make the right decision

00:29:51--> 00:29:53

based on your knowledge and based on your power.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

So once again, what do we find here to connect ourselves with our

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

Not because of this attribute of CODA

00:30:04--> 00:30:07

because of his attribute of power and ability.

00:30:09--> 00:30:19

The third lesson, believing in these names of Allah subhanahu wa Tada helps in warding off certain ailments and illnesses of the heart.

00:30:22--> 00:30:25

So there are many illnesses of the heart many diseases of the heart.

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

Among them

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

is hatred and hazard. Envy.

00:30:34--> 00:30:36

When you see that Allah has blessed

00:30:39--> 00:30:40

someone with something

00:30:41--> 00:30:43

and you end up having this

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

envy in your heart.

00:30:49--> 00:30:54

And this leads you to hatred for that person and wanting to strip him of that blessing.

00:30:56--> 00:30:58

So that you could have it for yourself.

00:30:59--> 00:31:06

And so, once you understand that a lot is cloudy, and Allah is cloudy and the light is there.

00:31:09--> 00:31:12

You will understand that Allah subhanahu wa taala

00:31:14--> 00:31:17

has given those people what He has given.

00:31:20--> 00:31:44

It is He Who has given it to them, not that they attained it on their own. It's not something that they strove so hard to get, and they achieved it on their own but rather it was ALLAH gave it to them. Once you understand that, Allah subhanahu Italia is the one who gave it to them. You understand Allah is the One who decreed it for them, coming back to al Qaeda,

00:31:45--> 00:31:53

it is Allah who decreed it for them based on his knowledge, based on his wisdom based on his will.

00:31:55--> 00:31:56

So you leave it to Allah.

00:31:57--> 00:32:07

You say hamdulillah for what I have, Allah has written for me to have what I have, and Allah has written for them to have what they have. And this is why it is said

00:32:09--> 00:32:10

that the engineer

00:32:13--> 00:32:14

is

00:32:16--> 00:32:18

I do need a tiller he is

00:32:19--> 00:32:23

the he is the the enemy of Allah's blessings upon his service.

00:32:26--> 00:32:29

One who envies or others have

00:32:30--> 00:32:33

in reality, he is an enemy of the blessings of Allah

00:32:34--> 00:32:36

that Allah has bestowed upon the surface.

00:32:38--> 00:32:40

The fourth lesson that we learn

00:32:41--> 00:32:45

is that one who believes in these names must believe that

00:32:46--> 00:32:51

not only physical material things are as a result of Allah's podra

00:32:53--> 00:32:54

was power and ability.

00:32:57--> 00:32:59

You know, like this world that we see around us,

00:33:01--> 00:33:04

the universe and this earth and everything that we see.

00:33:06--> 00:33:07

It's not

00:33:08--> 00:33:10

it's not just

00:33:12--> 00:33:19

that Allah subhanho wa Taala created all these things. And therefore it points to his put it up, but also

00:33:21--> 00:33:23

Allah's Qudra also means

00:33:25--> 00:33:27

him SubhanaHu Uttara

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

giving non material things

00:33:34--> 00:33:35

abstract things

00:33:36--> 00:33:37

like

00:33:38--> 00:33:39

guidance

00:33:40--> 00:33:41

and email

00:33:42--> 00:33:43

and Taqwa.

00:33:46--> 00:33:47

So, Allah has the power to that.

00:33:49--> 00:33:53

And he has the power to allow others to go straight.

00:33:54--> 00:34:00

He is the one who causes certain to certain people to be guided, and he is the one that causes others to go astray.

00:34:04--> 00:34:12

And this all comes under the clutter of Allah once again going back to the color of Allah like he said, part of a lot of clutter is to believe

00:34:14--> 00:34:18

that whatever happens, happens as a result of Allah's will.

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

And so,

00:34:23--> 00:34:27

it is Allah who decides, who will be guided and who will not be guided.

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

It is Allah who decides, who will die a movement and who will die.

00:34:35--> 00:34:36

This does not mean

00:34:38--> 00:34:43

that we human beings are forced into a certain state.

00:34:44--> 00:34:46

Therefore, we should not be held accountable.

00:34:48--> 00:34:56

For you know, our sins or our misguidance know Allah wills and he has also given us freewill.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

He has also given us freewill but you

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

At the end of the day,

00:35:02--> 00:35:08

in the end of the day, it all goes back to the will of Allah Azza wa sallahu wa Taala mentions, no matter sha Allah Illa and in sha Allah,

00:35:10--> 00:35:12

you do not will accept that Allah has also wilt.

00:35:13--> 00:35:15

The point here is

00:35:16--> 00:35:17

that

00:35:19--> 00:35:29

you this understanding should lead us to be content with the decree of Allah and not allow us to object or question

00:35:31--> 00:35:32

why is it

00:35:33--> 00:35:40

that some people have been guided and others has not been guided, once you understand that it all goes back to the will of Allah.

00:35:42--> 00:35:43

You will be content.

00:35:45--> 00:35:49

And this is something that Allah reminds his old prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:35:51--> 00:35:52

when he had a wilderness,

00:35:53--> 00:35:55

he had this burning will

00:35:56--> 00:35:59

to have his uncle have upon him to be guided.

00:36:01--> 00:36:07

Until his very last breath on his deathbed, he came to him and he told him to see the shadow.

00:36:08--> 00:36:10

You didn't say he died as a Muslim.

00:36:13--> 00:36:16

And it was difficult for the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam.

00:36:17--> 00:36:22

So Allah subhanahu wa Tada reminded him in Nikola Tesla demon,

00:36:23--> 00:36:25

while out in the lobby and dealing if

00:36:26--> 00:36:37

you do not guide whom you love, it's not up to you. It's not in your hands, but rather, it is Allah who guides who He wills.

00:36:40--> 00:36:41

Notice how Allah

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

connects guidance to His will.

00:36:47--> 00:36:49

It's as a result of the will of Allah.

00:36:51--> 00:36:53

Allah is reminding the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:36:54--> 00:36:55

So how about the rest of us?

00:36:59--> 00:37:11

The fifth lesson that we learned is that believing in these names, also helps us to deal with the age old problem known as the problem of evil

00:37:12--> 00:37:14

or suffering,

00:37:15--> 00:37:16

which has led

00:37:17--> 00:37:21

many to doubt the existence of Allah

00:37:26--> 00:37:27

and

00:37:28--> 00:37:33

especially non Muslims who leave their religions, this is one of the leading causes of atheism.

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

One of the leading causes of atheism is

00:37:39--> 00:37:45

trying to understand how could there exist

00:37:47--> 00:37:50

an all powerful and all merciful God

00:37:52--> 00:37:54

and yet there exists evil and suffering.

00:37:56--> 00:38:03

Shouldn't the mercy and the power of God prevent that evil and suffering.

00:38:07--> 00:38:12

And, you know, this is one of the adults that the atheists try to spread

00:38:14--> 00:38:26

among us, to make us to waver in our iman. And so a person who believes in these names of a lot of Cardinal cathedral nocturia, they will understand that

00:38:27--> 00:38:41

Allah subhanho wa Taala is not incapable, he is not powerless to remove evil, or suffering, but rather, he just didn't will for it to be removed.

00:38:43--> 00:38:44

And we mentioned this already.

00:38:46--> 00:38:48

It's not because of his inability.

00:38:51--> 00:38:53

But it simply because he didn't well for him.

00:38:54--> 00:38:58

He simply did not will or wish for it to be removed.

00:39:01--> 00:39:03

Now why did he not will for it to be removed?

00:39:04--> 00:39:06

This is due to his other attributes,

00:39:08--> 00:39:10

like his knowledge

00:39:11--> 00:39:12

and his wisdom.

00:39:15--> 00:39:16

And this is why it is

00:39:18--> 00:39:24

extremely important for the Muslim to educate himself on the names and attributes of Allah.

00:39:26--> 00:39:28

And to have a holistic view

00:39:30--> 00:39:33

of the names and attributes and not to just stick to

00:39:35--> 00:39:43

certain names and attributes of Allah while ignoring others. A person who will only focus on Allah is Rama, His mercy

00:39:44--> 00:39:46

and him being the most kind.

00:39:49--> 00:39:54

And he forgets that Allah is also the most wise

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

and the most knowledgeable, then yes, this will be an issue for him.

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

but once you understand that Allah is the most wise,

00:40:04--> 00:40:11

and the most knowledgeable, you will understand that whatever Allah does, whatever he decides whatever He wills

00:40:12--> 00:40:18

it's not because he intends evil. And it's not because

00:40:19--> 00:40:21

of inability. And it's not

00:40:23--> 00:40:26

because of something sinister.

00:40:27--> 00:40:31

But rather, it's for something good. There's always a greater good in it.

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

And so our answer to the so called problem of evil is the Allah allows evil and suffering to exist.

00:40:41--> 00:40:43

And he makes it actually

00:40:44--> 00:40:45

a mercy for us.

00:40:47--> 00:41:00

But the problem is that we can't see it. We can't see the wisdom of Allah. We don't see the mercy of Allah in it. But it's there. And that's why as the as the Elena they say, there is no such thing as

00:41:02--> 00:41:06

100% evil from all perspectives.

00:41:07--> 00:41:13

And a blocker him rocking what he really expound on this point, in his book, addressing the

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

the hikma of Allah

00:41:17--> 00:41:18

and His knowledge,

00:41:19--> 00:41:21

why he does what he does.

00:41:22--> 00:41:25

So he mentioned there's no such thing as 100% evil.

00:41:27--> 00:41:29

So he says, even a bliss

00:41:30--> 00:41:33

in his creation is not 100% evil, there was good in it.

00:41:37--> 00:41:43

If evil did not exist, if it least did not exist, we wouldn't be able to distinguish between good and evil.

00:41:44--> 00:41:48

There would be no meaning to Allah being the all forgiving

00:41:49--> 00:41:50

if we never seen

00:41:52--> 00:41:53

if we never fell into evil,

00:41:54--> 00:41:55

likewise suffering.

00:41:57--> 00:42:00

If Allah did not make us suffer, and we lived

00:42:02--> 00:42:03

a comfortable life,

00:42:04--> 00:42:05

we will never turn to Him.

00:42:07--> 00:42:09

We will never turn to Him. So

00:42:10--> 00:42:11

coming back to the point

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

that

00:42:15--> 00:42:24

we have to look at a Waushara hotel, His names and attributes holistically and not just focus on one or two and forget about the others. Finally, the last point I want to mention

00:42:26--> 00:42:35

when it comes to the Quadra of Allah subhanho wa taala. Again, the atheists, they will raise a question they will pose this question

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

to make us doubt the existence of Allah by trying to pose a contradiction

00:42:43--> 00:42:47

between Allah's Will and his power.

00:42:48--> 00:42:50

So what is the question that they asked?

00:42:52--> 00:42:56

What is the famous question that they asked? Can God

00:42:57--> 00:43:00

can God create a rock so big that he cannot lift?

00:43:01--> 00:43:03

So how do we answer this question?

00:43:04--> 00:43:18

Why why do they ask this question? Because they say, Oh, if God is the all powerful, and at the same time, he can do whatever, whatever he wants, then can he create a rock so big debt, that he cannot lift?

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

So they try to say here, there's a contradiction.

00:43:24--> 00:43:28

So we answer this by saying that Allah subhana, Allah tells us,

00:43:30--> 00:43:31

in Allah, Allah couldn't show you

00:43:33--> 00:43:37

that he is capable of doing everything in anything.

00:43:38--> 00:43:41

Without exception, there is no exception to that.

00:43:42--> 00:43:46

He can do everything. We affirm this.

00:43:47--> 00:43:49

So he can make a rock

00:43:50--> 00:44:01

or anything for that matter, that is so large and so heavy, that nothing in this created universe can move it were lifted.

00:44:03--> 00:44:04

Yes, he could do that.

00:44:05--> 00:44:14

But with respect to Allah subhanho wa Taala moving it, we say that Allah subhanahu Attallah is not in the universe to begin with.

00:44:17--> 00:44:22

He does not resemble his creation lay seconds meaning shape, there is nothing like him.

00:44:23--> 00:44:28

And so he is never subject to the laws of the creation.

00:44:30--> 00:44:38

Allah is not subject to the laws of His creation, because he is both the creator and

00:44:40--> 00:44:41

the law giver.

00:44:42--> 00:44:47

He not only created the physical creation, but he also set laws in place.

00:44:48--> 00:44:51

Certain things are heavy and certain things I liked.

00:44:52--> 00:44:55

You have the law of gravity. If you go up you have to come down.

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

Who created these laws Allah created them. But Allah is not

00:45:00--> 00:45:00

object to them.

00:45:02--> 00:45:04

Whilst handling the data is not subject to them.

00:45:06--> 00:45:11

You cannot say that, you know Allah is subject for example to the law of gravity.

00:45:14--> 00:45:20

He is not a part of His creation, in order for you to pull such a question in the first place.

00:45:21--> 00:45:23

He simply says couldn't fire cool.

00:45:24--> 00:45:27

He simply says Be, and it is.

00:45:29--> 00:45:30

And he is not a part of that.

00:45:31--> 00:45:38

He's not a part of that process of, of creation or making laws or abiding by laws.

00:45:39--> 00:45:41

We can also add to this,

00:45:42--> 00:45:46

that to conform between Allah's Will and his power.

00:45:48--> 00:45:53

It is against Allah's very nature and being to will something that is contradictory.

00:45:56--> 00:46:13

So, this question doesn't make sense to begin with, because it goes against who Allah subhanho wa Taala is in the first place. Therefore Allah subhanho wa Taala would not will such a thing in the first place.

00:46:16--> 00:46:18

You know, if your question is Can

00:46:19--> 00:46:25

God create a rock so heavy that He cannot lift? Allah would never will something in the first place like that?

00:46:26--> 00:46:29

Because he is the all knowledgeable

00:46:30--> 00:46:31

and we all wise

00:46:33--> 00:46:35

not because he is unable to we'll certainly

00:46:37--> 00:46:42

not because he is unable to will such a thing. That's what they're trying to confuse you.

00:46:43--> 00:46:47

They're trying to say he's capable of doing everything and willing everything.

00:46:48--> 00:46:54

We say this goes against who he is, he wouldn't wield such a thing in the first place.

00:46:56--> 00:47:04

So this is how we can answer this question very easily. So these are the three things I want to discuss tonight and show the next week. We'll move on to

00:47:06--> 00:47:27

another set of names from the Most Beautiful Names of Allah smart one Krisna. We ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah, to grant us beneficial knowledge. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us from among those who learn this knowledge of who Allah subhanho wa jal is in then help us to

00:47:28--> 00:47:42

help us to implement it in our lives. So tyrannical government will be assured we'll let you know who are interested if you were to relate, solely loving or send them an aluminum metal and he was, he was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi
