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

wa salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

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

We move on.

00:01:03--> 00:01:10

In our series of the Most Beautiful Names of Allah, Allah smart and Husna.

00:01:12--> 00:01:19

And so today we look at four names of Allah, four of the names of Allah subhanho Tirana.

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

And they are al Hakim

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

and Hakim,

00:01:29--> 00:01:32

Al Hakim, and Al Fatah.

00:01:33--> 00:01:40

So these four names and Hakeem al Hakim, Al Hakim and Al Fatah.

00:01:42--> 00:01:49

And these four names revolve around the theme of Allah subhanho wa Taala as wisdom and justice.

00:01:50--> 00:01:53

So the wisdom and the justice of Allah subhanahu wa.

00:01:55--> 00:02:01

So let us look at where these names have been mentioned. So

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

as for an Hakeem, it is one of those names of Allah that has been mentioned many many times in the Quran.

00:02:10--> 00:02:15

In fact, it is a name that has been mentioned close to 100 times in the Quran

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

just short of 100 times in the Quran.

00:02:22--> 00:02:29

And usually it comes in the Quran, along with two of Allah's other names.

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

And they are

00:02:32--> 00:02:35

al Aziz and Al Ali,

00:02:36--> 00:02:39

Al Aziz and Al Ali.

00:02:41--> 00:03:09

And so, for example, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, combining al Hakim with Al Aziz sub the Halina himself is similarity Well, are we well, well, I Zs will Hakeem will who will Aziz al Hakim, and this is repeated in other studios, such as sudo to Azure, said the highly Lahemaa V center Wati wonderful or we will who will ICs and hacky.

00:03:14--> 00:03:33

As for other than that we have in total Magadha Allah subhanahu wa Dallas's was Saturday Costa Rica to photo ID Hoonah Jessa and Bhima Kesava Nicola Mina Allah regarding the thief, that they should have their hands cut off.

00:03:35--> 00:03:51

Allah subhanho wa Taala ends diverse with his two names, who Allahu Aziz on Hakeem Allahu Aziz al Hakim. And so it is Al Aziz is a name we already mentioned previously, we already covered that name.

00:03:52--> 00:04:12

And Al Hakim in sha Allah Huhtala we're gonna cover tonight as for Al Hakim coming with Aleem Allah subhanho wa Taala says In the beginning of Surah Baqarah in the story of the angels, when Allah subhanho wa Taala created things and ask the angels to

00:04:13--> 00:04:14

name them.

00:04:15--> 00:04:23

And so their response was called also the Hannukah Kalu Subhanak Allah al Milena Elana Alevtina,

00:04:24--> 00:04:45

glory be to you, Oh Allah, we don't have knowledge except what You have taught to us. And then they said in Intel Eileen will Hakeem. Indeed you are Allah Haleem al Hakim. And so Allah Haleem is also a name that we have already covered previously. The most knowledgeable one we've already covered.

00:04:47--> 00:04:57

So this is Al Hakim, it's been mentioned numerous times in the Quran. As for Al Hakim al Hakim, it's a name that has only been mentioned once

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

in the Quran. It's so

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

only been mentioned once in the Quran and that is in surah.

00:05:06--> 00:05:11

In surah, two and ham, verse 114, Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:05:12--> 00:05:15

So what your Allah He or B tells you? How common

00:05:17--> 00:05:20

what who or what will be Angela ecoman kitab Mufasa Allah

00:05:22--> 00:05:34

should I seek a judge and how can means the judge as we're going to see, should I seek a judge other than Allah while it is He who has revealed for you the book,

00:05:35--> 00:05:37

so this is mentioned as an HCA

00:05:40--> 00:05:46

although it's only been mentioned once in the Quran, it's been mentioned by the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam explicitly.

00:05:47--> 00:05:53

And so Allah subhanahu Attallah explicitly or the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explicitly mentions

00:05:54--> 00:05:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala as Al Hakim. And this hadith is

00:06:02--> 00:06:03

the hadith of Hani,

00:06:04--> 00:06:05

Radi Allahu Han,

00:06:07--> 00:06:08

narrated by his son sureit.

00:06:10--> 00:06:24

He says that his father Hani when he went with his people in a delegation to Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard them calling him

00:06:26--> 00:06:28

by his Konya, which is his nickname.

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

And that was Abu Hakim,

00:06:32--> 00:06:33

Abu al Hakka.

00:06:35--> 00:06:38

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called him and said

00:06:41--> 00:06:42

in Allahu Al Hakim,

00:06:44--> 00:06:46

what Elijah he shook

00:06:47--> 00:06:55

the Allah He is unhackable so here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explicitly mentioned that Allah is a hacker,

00:06:56--> 00:06:58

and to Him belongs al hokum, the judgment.

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

So then he asked him, Why is it that they call you will hack him? And so he explained that when my people would disagree about something, they would dispute something,

00:07:14--> 00:07:15

they would come to me.

00:07:16--> 00:07:22

And I would judge between them. So I was, I'm like a judge among my people.

00:07:24--> 00:07:36

And so, when they would come to me for judgment, I would give my verdict and they would be satisfied with what I would judge. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that's great.

00:07:38--> 00:07:41

But then he said, Who are your children?

00:07:42--> 00:08:17

And so Hani, he said, I have Xu, Rakesh, Muslim, and Abdullah, three of his children. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked who is the oldest of them, and so he said, Surely, and so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, then you are Abu Shura, then you are Abu Shura. So here are the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam changed his cornea, his nickname to Abu Sharif and he explained how Allah subhanho wa Taala is an Hakim

00:08:18--> 00:08:20

and we cannot use that name for ourselves.

00:08:22--> 00:08:23

So, this is Al Hakim as for

00:08:25--> 00:08:26

Al Hakim,

00:08:27--> 00:08:30

it has not been mentioned explicitly

00:08:31--> 00:08:37

in the Quran, however, it has been mentioned in the plural form.

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

How is that?

00:08:42--> 00:08:58

We've mentioned this previously, how certain names of Allah come in the plural form, where Allah subhanahu Attallah says he is the best of such and such. So for example, Allah is the Best of those who provide

00:09:01--> 00:09:17

higher a Razzie clean. So here a Razzie theme, it comes in the plural for a Rozet is the is the singular or Razia clean is the poor. So likewise, Al Hakim has come in the plural form in the Quran.

00:09:19--> 00:09:24

How you will hack in in and come will hack you me.

00:09:25--> 00:09:26


00:09:29--> 00:09:33

in the case of hierarchy mean, Allah subhanho catalysis in Saudi Arabia

00:09:34--> 00:09:38

when he mentioned the story of Shuhei alayhi salam

00:09:40--> 00:09:50

that he said Show Hide said false to be true. He said his people first we will hit Kuma Allahu be Nana, will who are highly role hacky mean.

00:09:51--> 00:09:56

He said, Then be patient after he disputed with his people and they wouldn't listen to him.

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

He said Be patient. Be patient.

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

A lot judges between us and he is hierarchy mean He is the Best of those who judge. As for academic hockey mean

00:10:11--> 00:10:12

it's been mentioned in surah two teen

00:10:14--> 00:10:47

Elise Allah who the camel hockey mean. Elise Allah who be academic camel Hackie mean, is Allah not the most judge of those who judge? Is Allah? Not the most just of those who judge? Is Allah not the most, just of all judges. That's the meaning of common Hakimi. So this is Al Hakim. As for Al Fatah, the fourth name that we wanted to discuss tonight in sha Allah Allah Allah al Fatah has only been mentioned once in the Quran.

00:10:48--> 00:10:49


00:10:50--> 00:11:14

this is in surah, seven in surah. Allah subhanahu wa Alice's kuleana obey in our buena Sumaya, fettled Vijnana wha Hua Alfetta, hula, Halleen Wahoo, Al Fatah, Al Ali, say Our Lord will gather us, then he will judge between us. In truth.

00:11:15--> 00:11:19

He will judge between us in truth for he is

00:11:20--> 00:11:26

Al Fatah, Al Ali, he is the judge and the most knowledgeable.

00:11:27--> 00:11:34

So this is where Al Fatah has been mentioned. However, Allah describes himself in the Quran with the verb

00:11:35--> 00:11:36

you have to show

00:11:38--> 00:11:48

you have Dettol throughout the Quran, but as a name, it only be mentioned in this one instance. So what do these names of Allah mean?

00:11:49--> 00:11:52

All of these names refer to Allah as perfect.

00:11:55--> 00:12:02

Justice and wisdom and how he SubhanaHu Attallah is the judge.

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

And so Allah alone is the one who judges between his servants how he wills and when he wills.

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

There is no one to dispute with him about his judgment

00:12:16--> 00:12:26

about his verdict. And there is no one who can override or overturn. What Allah judges what Allah subhanho wa Taala decides

00:12:28--> 00:12:32

his judgment is final and cannot be appealed.

00:12:33--> 00:12:35

And when he passes judgment,

00:12:36--> 00:12:42

it is executed without delay, without any hesitation without anyone to come and stop it.

00:12:43--> 00:12:46

So this is Allah subhanho wa Taala being the judge

00:12:47--> 00:12:49

and the one who delivers justice.

00:12:50--> 00:12:52

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:12:53--> 00:12:55

in Surah Tauride

00:12:57--> 00:13:18

wala who yet Kumu learn more actively hook me Wahoo serial, he said that Allah decides he judges and none can reverse his decision. No one can reverse the decision of Allah. Once it comes and he is swift. What was surreal, he said he is quick in reckoning.

00:13:21--> 00:13:26

So in general, this is what these four names mean. As for Al Hakim,

00:13:27--> 00:13:33

as for Al Hakim, in addition to what we mentioned, that Allah is the judge.

00:13:34--> 00:14:16

In addition to that, it also means that Allah possesses ultimate wisdom, and that's why al Hakim is translated as the most wise, the most wise. And so it means that Allah possesses ultimate wisdom, in his decisions, in his verdicts and in his actions. In both what He decrees for us, as well as what he legislate for us, in both what He decrees for us, and what he legislate for us. The decrees of Allah has caught up, Allah has decreed for you such and such that this will happen to you.

00:14:18--> 00:14:20

This is based on a laws wisdom.

00:14:22--> 00:14:31

As for his legislation, what Allah has legislated, of commandments of prohibitions of halal and haram, etc.

00:14:33--> 00:14:36

Allah's legislations are based on his ultimate wisdom.

00:14:39--> 00:14:42

No legislation of Allah is without wisdom, without purpose.

00:14:44--> 00:14:54

And wisdom dictates wisdom dictates that you place everything in its due place. That's the meaning of wisdom.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

That is the meaning of wisdom that you put something in its proper place.

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

In the place that is more suitable for

00:15:04--> 00:15:16

and so all of Allah's judgments are based on his wisdom. As such, there is no judgment or decision of Allah that is open for debate.

00:15:18--> 00:15:20

That is open for us to object to.

00:15:23--> 00:15:24

No one

00:15:25--> 00:15:31

can dare object to what Allah has judged what he has decided,

00:15:32--> 00:15:45

in all categories that we mentioned, whether it be his decrees, or his legislations or even his creation, Allah has created such and such in this manner, who are you to object?

00:15:47--> 00:15:51

Allah has created this person in this form and district.

00:15:52--> 00:15:53

Don't ask, why

00:15:54--> 00:15:57

don't object to Allah's creation.

00:15:58--> 00:16:02

So, in all aspects, Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:16:04--> 00:16:10

His judgment, his decisions, his actions are based on wisdom and that is the meaning of Al Hakim,

00:16:12--> 00:16:14

law use Elohim nya Illa.

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

Allah says,

00:16:17--> 00:16:28

they are not to question Allah, He cannot be questioned, Allah cannot be questioned, but rather it is they It is we who will be questioned,

00:16:30--> 00:16:32

it is we will be questioned meaning

00:16:33--> 00:16:34

on the day of judgment

00:16:36--> 00:16:37

as for Al Fatah,

00:16:38--> 00:16:41

besides the meaning of judgment,

00:16:43--> 00:16:49

that Allah is the judge, it also means that Allah is the One who opens what is closed.

00:16:50--> 00:16:51

And so, in the Arabic language,

00:16:53--> 00:16:55

alphabet means to open something.

00:16:57--> 00:16:58

And so,

00:16:59--> 00:17:09

Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one by whose guidance that which is closed is opened, that which is unclear becomes clear.

00:17:10--> 00:17:21

And this we spoke about last week when we covered Allah's names of Al Hammadi and Al Moby that Allah is the one who guides

00:17:22--> 00:17:33

and he's the one who makes things clear. So Alfetta also carries the same meanings. And so Allah subhanahu Attallah is the one who opens up the hearts.

00:17:35--> 00:17:42

He is the one who opens up the hearts, He lifts the veils and allows guidance to reach the hearts.

00:17:44--> 00:17:55

And if we were to think about it, you know, who is it? Who causes some of the most staunch enemies of Islam to basically

00:17:56--> 00:18:00

reverse and turn completely

00:18:01--> 00:18:11

from becoming a staunch enemy of Islam to the greatest champion of Islam. The likes of admirable hotpot Radi Allahu Allah, and others.

00:18:12--> 00:18:29

Who is it who, who opens up that closed heart other than Allah subhanahu Allah. So Allah being al Fatah also carries this meaning, it also means the one who gives victory. And so alphabet in the Arabic language also means conquest.

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

Opening up

00:18:34--> 00:18:59

towns and cities conquering them. Allah is the One Who grants that victory. It also means that Allah is the One who opens the doors to success. He is the One who holds the keys to victory and success. And he is the one who reveals the solution to all problems. He's the one who guides you. Anytime you're stuck on something, he's the one who opens up the door for you.

00:19:01--> 00:19:11

So all of these meanings come under al Fatah, as Allah subhanahu Allah says in surah to know now after Hula, hula Nassim in Raj Mateen Fela, musi kala

00:19:12--> 00:19:17

whatever mercy Allah opens up for people, Nan can withhold it.

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

When are you in SQL? Well, when are you in SQL fella, Marcia, law who mean bad, and whatever he withholds whatever he does not open up for us, then no one can release it, no one can open it up.

00:19:36--> 00:19:39

What are some of the lessons that we can learn from these names?

00:19:40--> 00:19:46

What are some of the things that these names teach us? First and foremost? They teach us

00:19:47--> 00:19:55

the importance of submitting to what Allah has decreed what Allah has decided the judgments of Allah

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

and that includes as I mentioned, both

00:20:01--> 00:20:07

The coding decisions of Allah as well as the shorter decisions of Allah.

00:20:08--> 00:20:12

So whatever Allah has decreed for us,

00:20:13--> 00:20:24

to submit to us, to submit to it to be satisfied and content that this is the culture of Allah, Allah has planned this for me he has decided this form

00:20:25--> 00:20:29

as long as Allah has decided it for me, then who am I to object?

00:20:30--> 00:20:33

Likewise the legislations of Allah.

00:20:34--> 00:20:42

Allah has commanded us to pray five times a day, who am I to object Allah has legislated for

00:20:43--> 00:20:53

you know us to not commit certain sins who am I to object? And so a sign of your Eman depends on

00:20:54--> 00:20:56

on the level of this submission in your heart.

00:20:58--> 00:20:59

A sign of your Eman

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

basically depends on the level of this submission to Allah and his decisions, his judgments.

00:21:09--> 00:21:13

And Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us of this in Surah Nisa

00:21:16--> 00:21:18

in a very, very profound area.

00:21:20--> 00:21:23

Allah subhanahu Allah says fella, what a bigger

00:21:24--> 00:21:36

fella or a bigger law you may know now, you had chemo care female shoujo Rabina. Allah here is addressing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying to him

00:21:37--> 00:21:44

that, no, and Allah takes an oath by himself. Be Rebecca by your Lord.

00:21:45--> 00:21:59

They will never truly believe and hear Allah is referring to the Sahaba they will never truly believe they will never be true believers and people of Eman

00:22:00--> 00:22:06

until they have referred to you or Mohammad, to judge in their disputes.

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

Tamala G do fi and fusi him hydrogen mimma Kobita when you sell LIMU Taslima not only that, but then after they have come to you to settle their disputes,

00:22:23--> 00:22:31

they find no resistance within themselves. No objection within themselves against your decision or Muhammad.

00:22:32--> 00:22:39

And they submit wholeheartedly. When you sell LIMU, Taslima they submit wholeheartedly

00:22:40--> 00:22:41

complete submission.

00:22:43--> 00:22:53

And so all of this shows us that your level of Eman depends on your level of submission to what Allah has decided and when his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has decided.

00:22:55--> 00:22:58

The second lesson that we learn from these names

00:22:59--> 00:23:11

is that believing in these names of Allah should cause us to fear him and his punishment and not take his verdict and his judgment lightly.

00:23:12--> 00:23:30

Because it is unlikely that of any judge or court of law in this world where if you don't like the judgment or the verdict that's been passed, you can try to find a way around it. You can you can try to find loopholes in the system.

00:23:31--> 00:23:33

You can hire a good lawyer

00:23:35--> 00:23:38

and then even after the judgment, you can appeal it.

00:23:39--> 00:23:41

There are so many ways around

00:23:42--> 00:23:45

that that is not the case with Allah subhanahu ATOD

00:23:47--> 00:24:02

in the court of Allah, which will be established on yarmulke Liana there will be no loopholes. There will be no ways around. And there will be no appeals.

00:24:03--> 00:24:05

There will be no appeals.

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

And this will Allah subhanahu Attallah reminds us of

00:24:10--> 00:24:18

when the kuffaar mockingly asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when Hakuna Matata has alphabet

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

In Kuntum, Saudi clean they say mockingly when is this day of effect?

00:24:26--> 00:24:31

When is this day of final decision? If what you say is true Oh Muhammad.

00:24:33--> 00:24:50

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, say that say to them Oh Mohammed Khan. Yo Malfatti lie in Medina kifaru. Eman who Allah whom Yom Varun say to them, oh Muhammad, on the day of effect on the Day of Decision

00:24:51--> 00:24:56

on the day of the final decision. It will not benefit the kuffar to believe that

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

it will not benefit

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

Any person of Cofer any person of disbelief no Eman will benefit him on that day.

00:25:08--> 00:25:27

Nor will they be delayed from their punishment, nor will they be granted respite or delay for their punishment. So this reminds us of what I just mentioned earlier, that when the judgment of Allah is passed, it is executed without delay.

00:25:29--> 00:25:31

And without any hesitation.

00:25:32--> 00:25:36

The third lesson that we learn from these names

00:25:37--> 00:25:44

is that these names teach us that the only valid and true judgment is that of Allah

00:25:46--> 00:25:50

and that all other forms of judgment

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

that are not based on the deen of Allah, or the Sharia Allah or invalid

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

and completely useless

00:26:04--> 00:26:09

and that ruling by laws other than the laws of Allah is covered.

00:26:11--> 00:26:14

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us

00:26:15--> 00:26:18

that the eventual judgment is the judgment of Allah

00:26:20--> 00:26:30

will knock telephone V human che in for Hakuho Illa Allah, whatever you may differ about its judgment rests with Allah

00:26:32--> 00:26:39

as a hook manager Helia To whom do they seek the judgment of the days of Jamelia

00:26:40--> 00:26:44

woman X and women as an omen Allah hookman

00:26:45--> 00:26:46

Lee call me up

00:26:47--> 00:26:58

and who is better, who is better, who could possibly be a better judge? Then Allah subhanahu Uttara for people of your team for people of

00:26:59--> 00:27:01

certainty in their email.

00:27:03--> 00:27:08

And Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us that those who resort

00:27:10--> 00:27:19

to ruling by other than what he has revealed, then they are as Allah mentions in solitary Magadha for whom will Fassi goon

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

volley Moon will care for you.

00:27:26--> 00:27:28

In these three items Surah Al Magadha.

00:27:30--> 00:27:46

When the Lamb Jacobina Ansar Allah, for Allah, Muhammad Fassi the whoever rules and judges or whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, then they are Facetune they are defiantly disobedient

00:27:48--> 00:28:06

woman let me call me Maya Angelou off it was like a woman whom a volley moon and likewise they are oppressors and unjust women let me be my answer a lot will lie to whom will carefully rule and whoever does not rule by what Allah has revealed. They truly are the kuffar the disbelievers.

00:28:08--> 00:28:11

And so judging by other than the deen of Allah,

00:28:13--> 00:28:15

using manmade laws is Cofer

00:28:16--> 00:28:17


00:28:18--> 00:28:22

the law of Allah under Sharia of Allah in the book of Allah,

00:28:23--> 00:28:24

replacing it.

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

In constitutions

00:28:30--> 00:28:33

with man made laws is clear cover

00:28:35--> 00:28:38

and resorting to those laws is clear cover.

00:28:41--> 00:28:44

And replacing it with the law of Allah is covered.

00:28:47--> 00:28:49

The fourth lesson that we learned from these names

00:28:51--> 00:28:56

is that all of Allah's decisions and actions are based on his full knowledge

00:28:58--> 00:29:03

and his ultimate wisdom. We learned this from Allah's Name and Hakeem to all wise.

00:29:04--> 00:29:07

And so as I mentioned, this includes Allah's creation.

00:29:09--> 00:29:12

Allah does not create anything without purpose without objective.

00:29:14--> 00:29:24

Let's all look around you and look at you know, this creation of Allah. And the more we advanced scientifically, the more we discover that whatever Allah has created,

00:29:25--> 00:29:27

He has created it perfectly.

00:29:28--> 00:29:33

And there is nothing that Allah creates except for a purpose. And it has a wisdom.

00:29:35--> 00:29:44

There are things that we didn't know what its wisdom was. But today we discover that this was its wisdom. Why did Allah create certain things the way he created?

00:29:47--> 00:29:50

And the more we, you know, advanced the more we will learn that.

00:29:51--> 00:29:56

So in the creation of Allah is his wisdom. This also includes our own creation.

00:29:58--> 00:30:00

The question of purpose, Why did Allah

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

creators, Allah does not create except for purpose. So Allah did not create intelligent beings like me and you without purpose, because that goes against his name and Hakeem, to our wives. And so in this is a refutation of those who claim we do not need religion.

00:30:23--> 00:30:26

We don't need religion in this day and age.

00:30:27--> 00:30:29

Because we know what's best for us.

00:30:32--> 00:30:39

And those who say that we are here to live and die, and there's no purpose behind behind this life other than

00:30:40--> 00:30:45

to live, to eat, to drink to enjoy ourselves and die. And that's it.

00:30:49--> 00:31:03

If a hasip tool and Namaha lacuna Kumada 10, one na comida, unilateral German, Allah asks, Do you think that we have created you, without meaning without purpose, and that you will not be returning to us.

00:31:05--> 00:31:21

And so in our own creation, there is purpose and obviously Allah has told us why He created us, to worship Him, to serve Him, and that those who do so they will be rewarded and those who do not, they will be punished.

00:31:22--> 00:31:23


00:31:26--> 00:31:29

this includes the creation of Allah and it includes, as I mentioned,

00:31:31--> 00:31:39

the decisions of Allah, both qaderi and shadowy. And so, Allah has decreed certain things for us.

00:31:40--> 00:31:45

Whatever he has decreed for us, which falls under the color of Allah.

00:31:47--> 00:31:48

It has a wisdom behind it.

00:31:50--> 00:31:57

It has a purpose behind it. And we should not think that, you know, why would Allah do this to me,

00:31:58--> 00:32:04

we should not object and say that Allah intends evil for me know.

00:32:06--> 00:32:21

Whatever Allah does, he does it for our own good. There is a wisdom in whether we see it or not. Whether we see that wisdom or not. Likewise, as I said, the legislation's of Allah, whatever Allah has commanded, whatever he has forbidden,

00:32:22--> 00:32:23

there is wisdom in it.

00:32:26--> 00:32:36

Whatever he legislates, he does so for a purpose. And it is usually in our own interest. It's always in our own interest.

00:32:37--> 00:32:42

And so for example, whatever Allah has made haram, it's because of the harm that is involved in it.

00:32:44--> 00:32:51

Allah wants to prevent us from harming our own selves. And that's why he has made what he has made to be haram.

00:32:53--> 00:32:55

And so the wisdom is there.

00:32:57--> 00:33:00

Whether we see the wisdom and whether we see the purpose or not.

00:33:01--> 00:33:16

And so your belief in Allah being al Hakim, the most wise means that you trust Allah's decisions and his judgments, and that you do not ask that you do not object. Why

00:33:18--> 00:33:21

have you decided this to be such and such? Oh Allah.

00:33:23--> 00:33:25

It shouldn't be like this. It should be like that.

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

Where is the wisdom? I don't see the wisdom.

00:33:31--> 00:33:41

In fact, it is impossible for us. Yes, many times we'll see the wisdom of Allah behind what he designs, you know, behind his judgments.

00:33:44--> 00:33:55

And the scholars of Islam have written you know, books, volume upon volume, mentioning the hikma, the wisdom, behind

00:33:56--> 00:33:57

the decisions of Allah.

00:33:59--> 00:34:03

Sometimes we may see the wisdom and many times we won't see the wisdom.

00:34:07--> 00:34:18

But what we have to know for sure is that it is impossible for us to discover all of Allah's wisdom, all of his wisdom,

00:34:19--> 00:34:29

in his creation, and in his judgments. Why? Because Allah's perfection

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

is something that is beyond our finite and limited intellects.

00:34:38--> 00:34:39

And so,

00:34:40--> 00:34:43

our human intellect has a limit.

00:34:46--> 00:34:52

And you cannot comprehend that which is infinite,

00:34:53--> 00:34:55

with something that is finite.

00:34:56--> 00:35:00

So the knowledge of Allah and His wisdom is something

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

India has no limit. So who are you to come and say, I want to know all of the wisdom behind what Allah has decided.

00:35:11--> 00:35:14

And that you're not going to believe in something unless you know the wisdom behind it.

00:35:17--> 00:35:20

And so this is the example of someone who goes to the goes to the sea

00:35:22--> 00:35:30

with, let's say, a bucket, and he fills it up and he says, I want the entire water of the sea to come into this bucket.

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

And that's why Musa alayhis salam, when he traveled with killer, and they were on the on the ship.

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


00:35:46--> 00:35:48

in explaining

00:35:49--> 00:35:54

the knowledge of Allah compared to our human knowledge, could have said when he saw a bird

00:35:56--> 00:36:01

put his beak in the water of the sea. He said to Musa alayhis salam,

00:36:02--> 00:36:12

our knowledge compared to the knowledge of Allah is like what that bird took from the sea of water of however, however many drops that was

00:36:13--> 00:36:15

compared to the water of the seek.

00:36:16--> 00:36:45

And so it's impossible for us to say that we want to comprehend all of Allah's wisdom and his knowledge with our finite human intellects. And so when there is something that we find objectionable, what should we do, we should say, that we trust in Allah, leaving something you don't understand, you don't see the wisdom of Allah in it, leave it say this is something I don't understand why because of my own shortcoming.

00:36:46--> 00:36:50

Because of my imperfect human mind,

00:36:52--> 00:36:55

lead it and put your trust in Allah, the One who is perfect from all angles.

00:36:58--> 00:37:00

Also, what we learned from

00:37:02--> 00:37:07

these names of Allah and this is something general about all of last names

00:37:09--> 00:37:13

the importance of understanding the meanings of Allah's names

00:37:17--> 00:37:18

and here we have a story.

00:37:21--> 00:37:24

There was a leading scholar of the Arabic language

00:37:26--> 00:37:30

in the early centuries of Islam by the name of an ostomy.

00:37:32--> 00:37:38

And so, he says that he was once reciting Surah to Magadha

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

while accompanying a Bedouin,

00:37:45--> 00:37:46

and generally,

00:37:48--> 00:37:49

the Bedouins in those days

00:37:50--> 00:38:08

they had you know, the highest level of proficiency in the Arabic language. And so, the scholars of Arabic and of Arabic grammar would go and learn from the Bedouins the Arabic language why, because their language had not been tainted.

00:38:10--> 00:38:21

It was still, you know, natural. And it was not, you know, their language was not mixed with other languages of other civilizations.

00:38:22--> 00:38:41

So he was traveling or he was in the company of this Bedouin and he was reciting Surah to America. And he came across the area where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, And we mentioned this area was sad he was sad you Klaatu for Qatar idea Houma. Jessa MB Marchesa, Nicola mean Allah

00:38:43--> 00:38:50

the fee the male and the female thief cut off their hands for what they have done as a deterrent from Allah.

00:38:52--> 00:38:57

Now what did we say was the ending of this if we mentioned it earlier? Earlier on

00:38:58--> 00:39:00

was what was the ending of the

00:39:02--> 00:39:02


00:39:07--> 00:39:08

Allah for Rahim

00:39:10--> 00:39:11

was that what it was?

00:39:15--> 00:39:17

Well Lahav afford Rahim. Or Willa who as easily

00:39:19--> 00:39:23

as even Hakeem right? So allow some summary.

00:39:25--> 00:39:35

When he ended the idea, he said, Allahu Allah for Rahim. Now think about the context. Allah is saying chop off the hand of the thief

00:39:40--> 00:39:41

This is his punishment.

00:39:42--> 00:39:49

So he mistakenly read it while Allah Hoover for Rahim and Allah is the Most Forgiving, the Most Compassionate.

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

Perhaps he thought, This is what makes sense here.

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

That, you know, if you cut off the hand of the thief, he'll

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

regret what he did and he'll ask Allah for forgiveness.

00:40:05--> 00:40:09

So the bedwin who it seems like he had not memorized,

00:40:11--> 00:40:16

but he stopped him here. And he said, whose words are these?

00:40:17--> 00:40:18


00:40:19--> 00:40:22

last night he says, These are the words of ALLAH.

00:40:24--> 00:40:25

So he said repeater.

00:40:27--> 00:40:36

So also now he says, I repeated the same thing. And I finished the ayah in the same way well over for him. But then I realized my mistake

00:40:38--> 00:40:41

and I realized it is well law who has ease on Hakeem.

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

And so I asked him

00:40:46--> 00:40:50

so the bed when he said yes, now now you got to write. So I asked him

00:40:53--> 00:40:53

How did you know?

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

You're not half of the Quran.

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

And so he says, Allah is a disease, He is the Almighty and He is an Hakim. He is the most whines and that is why he commanded to chop off the hand.

00:41:15--> 00:41:18

That is why he commanded to chop off the hand.

00:41:20--> 00:41:21

It's the context of the iron.

00:41:24--> 00:41:26

Here Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:41:28--> 00:41:35

is mentioning a punishment and what is suitable in that context is

00:41:37--> 00:41:39

to describe Allah as being Almighty.

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

And being the most wise

00:41:45--> 00:41:52

it's based on his wisdom and his might. The he legislated such a punishment.

00:41:55--> 00:41:58

Similar to this is what Abraham Rahim Allah mentions

00:41:59--> 00:42:02

Ibaka him the famous scholar from the eighth century.

00:42:04--> 00:42:09

He says, Concerning Allah's statement at the end of Surah Turner EDA,

00:42:10--> 00:42:24

in a story a very Sally has Salam, when Risa Alayhis Salam will come before Allah on the day of judgment, and Allah will question him in front of everyone that did you tell the people to worship

00:42:25--> 00:42:27

to worship you instead of me?

00:42:30--> 00:42:34

Did you tell the people the Christians obviously who worship the reciting setup

00:42:35--> 00:42:44

and so in front of the entire creation, are you Saudi Saddam will declare his innocence and it will say I will not dare to think like that.

00:42:47--> 00:42:50

And then he sadly has Salam says,

00:42:51--> 00:42:55

into a zip home for inner whom he Batak

00:42:56--> 00:42:59

Oh Allah, if you punish them

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

if you decide to punish them, then

00:43:05--> 00:43:06

they belong to you.

00:43:08--> 00:43:15

They are yours they are Your servants into a zip boom for inom Haydock if you decide to punish them now

00:43:16--> 00:43:23

it's your choice they are Your servants do with them what you want to do with them what Intel funeral home

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

but if you decide to forgive them

00:43:27--> 00:43:31

if you decide to forgive them now here is the question what should it be

00:43:34--> 00:43:39

should it be a photo Rahim you are a former Rahim or you are

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

as he's on Hakeem.

00:43:47--> 00:43:51

So for Rahim and as he's on hotkey

00:43:53--> 00:44:33

So, in this ayah Allah says into a zebra home for in nomadic if you decide to punish them, they are Your servants were internal funeral home and if you decide to forgive them for in Nikka analyzes will Hakeem if you decide to forgive them, then indeed you are the almighty the always even look at him says here that Allah subhanahu Attallah did not end with California Rahim isa Ali Salam did not refer to Allah as the most forgiving the Most Merciful here. After seeing if you decide to forgive them.

00:44:34--> 00:44:38

You are the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful. He didn't do that. Why?

00:44:39--> 00:44:40


00:44:41--> 00:44:45

here at this point, Allah is in extreme anger.

00:44:46--> 00:44:47

This is your work Liam.

00:44:50--> 00:44:52

And here Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

his anger will come on that day as a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us

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

that there is no day in which Allah will be more angry than on that day.

00:45:05--> 00:45:07

He doesn't make sense that

00:45:09--> 00:45:10

at such a time

00:45:12--> 00:45:19

you're calling upon Allah, with the names like you are the most forgiving. You are the one who pardons you are the one who

00:45:20--> 00:45:21

is most Merciful.

00:45:23--> 00:45:33

But rather, it makes sense to say you are the Almighty and all lives, meaning if you decide not to forgive them,

00:45:34--> 00:45:42

if you decide not to forgive them, it's not because of your inability to forgive them.

00:45:44--> 00:45:49

But rather You are Almighty, Allah as he is. Nor is it because

00:45:50--> 00:46:25

of your ignorance that you don't know the degree of their crimes. Rather URL. Hakeem, the most whines, you knew everything. And so if you decide to punish them, and not forgive them, it's not because you were unable to forgive them, but rather because you are the Almighty, and all wives. The point here is that learning the names of Allah, and the meanings of the names of Allah, it helps greatly in understanding why Allah subhanahu Attallah uses

00:46:27--> 00:46:40

certain names in certain contexts of the Quran, and why he doesn't use other names. And all of this comes under the top bar of the Quran, reflecting over the meanings of the Quran, not simply reciting.

00:46:41--> 00:46:55

And passing over the meanings quickly, but really sitting down and reflecting, why does Allah say this? Why does he say this here, reflecting not in a manner to object, but rather in a manner to understand

00:46:56--> 00:46:58

the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:46:59--> 00:47:24

And so with that, we conclude, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us beneficial knowledge of His Names of his attributes that will help us upon his obedience. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept from us, or Salah Allahu wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Ultramarine was Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Oh, boo,

00:47:26--> 00:47:27


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


00:47:32--> 00:47:34
