When it comes to our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala
there is one very important aspect that we need to focus on.
And that is,
how do we perceive of Allah subhanho wa Taala in our hearts?
Where does Allah rank
in our hearts?
How is your behavior and conduct with Allah subhanho wa taala.
And so when we respect certain people in this world,
we deal with them and we behave with them in a certain way, and
how out of veneration out of respect for them.
We have certain etiquette in our dad, with our parents,
because they are the ones who
raised us up.
We have certain etiquette, certain adab with our teachers, because they are the ones who taught us.
And so we have to have a certain set of adapt to certain etiquette with a loss of Hannah, who with the other because it is he SubhanaHu taharah who created us, who provided for us who showered his unlimited blessings upon us.
And so it doesn't make sense that we behave with certain added
to human beings when they deserve it, yes.
we don't have any adab when it comes to Allah subhanho wa taala.
Islam can be divided into four
into worship, and
dealings and transactions.
the fourth, adaptive attitudes and behavior manners.
for Muslims, beliefs
are up to par.
And his worship is also
up to par.
What's left is for him or her
to crown themselves with oil add up
etiquette in Islam
is three categories.
The first is a dab
And the second is al Adha with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam and the third is added with the rest of Allah's creation.
And so when talking about
with Allah subhanho wa Taala
we can mention several things.
The very first point that we can mention here is
that etiquette with Allah subhanho wa Taala
first and foremost means the veneration of Allah
and respect for Allah subhanahu wa Tada himself
as Allah subhanho wa Taala says, describing the believers
in them enamel miuna Latina EDA, looky Rola who, what do you let go through boom? What either toliet ID him to who? Za tomb Iman wa Robbie him ito ahkello
Allah says the true believers are only those
whose hearts tremble at the remembrance of Allah. And
when they remember ALLAH, their hearts tremble.
And those whose Eman increases
when the verses of Allah are recited to them,
and those who put their trust
in their Lord, as Elijah.
And so what this means is
that you don't allow your heart to turn to anyone besides Allah subhanho wa taala. Nor do you allow your desires to be
in what Allah dislikes.
Rather you avoided elder veneration and respect for Allah.
You avoid fulfilling your desires, when
they involve what is displeasing to Allah,
our veneration for Allah, out of respect for who Allah is
not only because Allah has forbade us from certain things in
ADAD for Allah subhanahu wa Tada and
the second thing that
netiquette with Allah involves is to not disrespect Allah subhanho wa Taala with our tongues
not to say about Allah subhana wa Tada
what is basically
deficiency for Allah subhanahu methodic not to attribute to a lot, any kind of deficiency
whether it be a weakness and
or that Allah acts randomly
without any purpose.
These are all attributes that involves some kind of deficiency.
And Allah subhanahu wa Tada says, so the Hannah who what the Allah, I'm Maya guna Rulu when Kabira
May Allah be glorified
He is glorified, He is exalted, above what they say.
above what the kuffaar say about Allah subhanho wa Taala
look at the etiquette of Ibrahim Ali Salaam.
In how he
attribute to Allah subhanahu wa Tada. What is the feeling for Allah?
What did Ibrahim alayhi salam say? He's said, what either marine to
and when I am ill,
it is He Allah who cures me.
Notice how he attributed the illness to himself.
He said when I fall ill
as for the cure, he attributed it to a loss of Hannah
even though yes,
Allah subhanahu wa Tada predestined
and allowed for him to fall ill and for us to fall ill
But out of etiquette, we do not attribute that to Allah subhanho wa taala. So we don't say, Allah is the one who caused me to fall ill. Allah is the One who harmed me. We don't say that and we're going to talk more about that later on.
So Ibrahim alayhis salam, look at his adab with Allah subhanahu wa.
Likewise we find the same thing. Allah tells us about the Righteous Among the jinn.
In surah, two Jin among the things that they said, well, in LAN Aditi, Sharon, puri, the beam and Phil orb
are all there'll be him.
Allah subhanahu wa Tada says, You're the gem. Among the things that they said. And we do not know whether evil is intended for those on earth.
This is concerning
a certain change that had occurred in the heavens
when previously they used to eavesdrop
in the heavens, listening to what the angels are
bringing down of the commands of Allah and the decree of Allah, so they used to eavesdrop. And they would
take this information to
to fortune tellers and pass on information concerning the future.
When the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent, and
they were no longer able to do that.
And so the touring stores would hit them, if they try to do that. So the gin realize that, you know, something has happened here.
So they said, among the things that they said, What a nanana dairy, a short rune or either Beeman, Phil or Rajabi him Rob boom Ru*a. They said, We don't know
evil is intended for those on earth, or if their Lord intends for them a right path
had been conceived in his Tafseer he says, the jinn they stated this in such a manner out of their etiquettes
in freezing their speech,
because they do not attribute the doings of evil to anyone. And they said in Alana Dearie assured rune reader, we don't know has evil been intended for those on earth? Notice they did not say as Allah intended evil for the people on earth. No. They said,
We don't know. Has evil been intended for those on earth?
They've been Kassir. He says, but they attributed the good to Allah
or RW him rock boom Russia, or has Allah their Lord intended good for them. So when it came to evil, they did not attribute it to anyone. But when it came to good, they attributed to Allah. When cathedra says, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in his dua was short ruler is a lake, and evil is not attributed to you.
And so from our adab with Allah is that we only attribute to Him what is good and what is perfect.
And we do not attribute to Him subhanho wa taala. Any kind of deficiency, we need to be careful about what our tongues speak, concerning ALLAH SubhanA. What's
the third thing that our etiquette with Allah involves
is to believe in Allah, to have certainty
in Allah subhanho wa Taala
and to accept
and to submit
to everything that Allah has sent us, either in the Quran, or through
the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon the tongue of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, from our adab with Allah
is to believe in everything that has come to us from him subhanho wa Taala
do not reject anything of that. Do not object to anything of that.
And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says describing the believers
in America and our cold and me
Nina Iida do it Allah He was truly he Lee Kuma the inner home guru Sameer? In our Aparna what would you call home? Well mostly
the only response of the true believers, when they are called to Allah and his messenger so that they could judge between them. Their only call is the only response is in the mirror now what Aparna we hear and we obey
from our adab with Allah
except to submit to him wholeheartedly
not finding in our hearts any kind of objection
to what we have heard from Allah and His messenger.
This is from our adept with Allah
to force point and certainly our adept with Allah
is to respect
that is attributed to Allah
anything that is attributed to Allah subhanho wa taala.
the messengers of Allah,
they are Allah's messengers. And Allah says Wushu, Li,
Allah says concerning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Rasulullah
he is the messenger of Allah.
Likewise, the books of Allah, we refer to them as well kootu VG
they are the books of Allah, they are attributed to allow likewise Baitullah in
the house of Allah, it is attributed to Allah, the caliber, and Max.
And so, these are the things that are attributed to Allah, we need to have respect for them, we need to have veneration for them likewise.
Then reading the Shah of Allah, what are the shadows of Allah?
The symbols of Allah
the symbols of this Deen there are certain things which are considered symbols of our deen
like the rituals in which Allah refers to them as SHA, Allah, the symbols of Allah.
Likewise the months certain months are secret, like this current month of Ramadan
we need to have respect for the
other months of the year. They are
they are sacred Allah made them sacred.
Likewise, anything else that Allah has made sacred
you know, the various acts aspects of our deen
we're not allowed to disrespect anyone of that.
We're not allowed to make fun of any of that.
There are some people they make fun of certain things which are considered as shy or they were deemed as
symbols of our deen.
The beard is a symbol of our deen and the hijab is a symbol of our deen.
So Allah is a symbol of our deen eating halal. This is a symbol of our deen, halal food
and so on and so forth.
When it comes to all of these things, whether they are things attributed to Allah, or the Shah of Allah, the symbols of Allah, we need to have respect for them. And by doing so, we're expecting Allah subhanho wa Taala we are fulfilling our etiquette in our adulthood. Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah says
that Lika will mean you will have Zim whom Atilla he is the who will hire Allah Who Endora
Allah says, and that is so and whoever
honors what Allah has me sacred, it is better for them in the sight of their Lord.
And then a few verses later, Allah says in surah Al Hajj, the holy cow will mean you have limb sha Allah to enhance Taqwa Karup. That is so and whoever honors the symbols of Allah shahada it of Allah, and it is certainly out of the taqwa of the heart.
It is a sign of your taqwa
that you honor the symbols of Allah. It is a sign of your taqwa that you respect what Allah has made sacred
and this is why
it was out of disrespect that
the seller, some of them, they would dress up in the best of clothing.
They would dress up in the best of clothing.
When not when going out
to meet somebody important.
Somebody Special No.
Rather than standing up
there so long before Allah subhanahu wa
they would wear their best quote.
it had been Jerry povery. He says,
the set of use to like beading, in the last 10 Nights, ever, every night they would bathe. And
some of them would even put on perfume and wear the best of coat. Why?
Because they're looking for Leila, to cuddle.
And when little cuddle comes, they want to be
in the most presentable manner to Allah subhanho wa taala. When the angels descend, they want to look good.
Because the angels are special, Allah is special.
So they are honoring the shahada of Allah by doing so. And
finally, the last thing that our dedikate are adept with Allah involves
is to deal with it.
The idea of Allah subhanho wa Taala
the decrees of Allah to deal with them
with patience and contentment
ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada decrees something for you.
It may be painful.
It may be very difficult to cope with it.
It's a calamity. It's a crisis in your life. The catastrophe
was from Allah. So
out of your edit with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada what should you do?
You should be patient.
And you should be content with what Allah has decreed for you.
And you should not be objective.
Until Allah subhanahu wa Tada says, The
man or saw them in mercy but in
love eating Allah.
There is no mercy, but there is no calamity that befalls except by the will of Allah.
And then what does Allah say? Warming Lookman Billahi Nickleback.
And whoever believes whoever truly believes in Allah,
that Allah will guide to their heart
to whatever adversity befalls them.
To Eman is that when the calamity of Allah befalls
you attribute it to the culture of Allah
until you remain patient, and content with what Allah has decreed to satisfy you.
And Connor is
one of the famous seller, he was asked about this verse. And so he said, it refers to someone who has been afflicted with a certain calamity.
And he knows that it is from Allah. So he's intent and he submit, submit willfully.
So I want to conclude on this point
the calamities that Allah sends us
and how to have the proper etiquette with Allah concerning that.
So I want to conclude with the following description that Allah subhanahu Attallah gives us
Most people say
Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says in surah Rahman
and this is repeated elsewhere.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says
what either and I'm now in sunny
101 B journeyman.
when we grant,
our fevers, our blessings to people
or to man
horrible. He turns away
one ABI journeyman
Meaning that when Allah sends good to you
He bestows His fevers upon you, his near him his blessings to
I deserve this?
I worked hard for this, to achieve this, and I'm the one who achieved it.
returns away from Allah. And he doesn't attribute that blessing to Allah, rather he attribute attributes it to himself.
And he acts arrogantly
if he's reminded this is a blessing from Allah, and he says, No.
This is something that I have achieved myself, and
I did it on my own.
And then what does Allah say?
What either Mr. Who should rule can or your Oosa.
when man is touched with evil,
he loses all hope.
He loses all hope.
He falls into depression.
You should look at his state, it becomes miserable.
And so such people are those who boast about what they have one
of the many blessings of Allah,
he may be rich.
you know, they may have been blessed with other kinds of blessings that Allah has given them.
To me, maybe intelligence and
And so, they are both for
and they say this all because of my own efforts. I deserve it.
But now when a calamity befalls them,
they become depressed. And they tend to put the blame
or their suffering on Allah. And
they tend to put the blame of their suffering on Allah. They ask, Oh Allah, what did I do to deserve this? Why have you Oh Allah, why have you
blocked me with this calamity.
But when good happened,
and good happened to them? They said this was my own doing.
I deserved it.
But when something bad happened,
what did they say? He said, This is the doing of Allah.
I don't deserve it.
And so the lesson that we learned from this
is a lesson of etiquette.
with Allah subhanho wa taala.
Not only of how we think of Allah subhanho wa Taala but also how we talk about Allah subhanho return because how we talk is based on how we think. And
so if this is what we are saying about Allah,
it says a lot about
our perception of Allah subhanho wa Taala and how we think of Allah
And so although ALLAH SubhanA
With the harlot is the one who predestines everything.
It is out of respect and out of air dad and etiquette will Allah to only attribute to Him the good
as we mentioned earlier, and not too bad
just like Allah did here in this verse
which is what the deal was 100 with our decision sorta to destroy what you got in the Hamner island in Cerny, when we
bless man with these favors, so Allah attributed the favors to himself, that he is the one who bestowed man with favors, but when it came to evil,
What did Allah say? What did I miss who shot
what did not say? And when Allah touches men with evil, rather, Allah says, But when man is touched with evil
When man is touched with evil
and so this is throughout the Quran, and we mentioned two examples already. Earlier on, we mentioned the example of Ibrahim Ali salah, and how he attributed it to Allah to cure, but he attributed to himself,
and the jinn, the Righteous Among the jinn, who attributed to Allah good, but not that
this is a theme that we find throughout the Quran.
we notice Allah subhanahu wa Attallah does not attribute harm to himself, a sharp, evil, Allah does not attribute it to himself.
But rather, he only attributes the good to himself. Whatever harm
he mentions, you either leaves it open, as mentioned here, when man is touched with evil, or Allah attributes it to ourselves.
Why? Because we are the cause of Whatever befalls us. That's the reality of whatever calamity befalls us. We need to
investigate we need to ponder why has this calamity befall in us and when we contemplate when we think over we'll find out that the reason is ourselves
I shouldn't wander
murderers oh no on
