00:01:13--> 00:01:24

misma la Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While early he was hobby he woman, Toby yahuda. About

00:01:28--> 00:01:32

the month of Ramadan is the month of the Quran

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

and there is no greater act of worship.

00:01:39--> 00:01:45

Then to recite the Quran and to study the Quran in this month.

00:01:46--> 00:01:49

That is because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

was the greatest prophets.

00:01:53--> 00:02:03

And the book that he was sent with was the greatest of books. And in the month of Ramadan, Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded gibreel the greatest of the angels

00:02:05--> 00:02:07

to descend during this month

00:02:09--> 00:02:27

for no other reason than to study the Quran with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the entire Quran. And so every single year, he would go over the entire Quran with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in the last year before his death. He went over it twice in the month of Ramadan.

00:02:30--> 00:02:36

And so last week we went through the greatest surah of the Quran Surah Fatiha

00:02:38--> 00:02:39

and we went over

00:02:41--> 00:02:44

some points regarding swords refer to her

00:02:46--> 00:02:50

words of wisdom that can be gathered from similar to data.

00:02:52--> 00:02:54

And so the point of this is not

00:02:56--> 00:03:06

the Tafseer of the Quran. For the feet of the Quran is one thing and reflecting over the meanings of the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala is something else.

00:03:08--> 00:03:12

And so today we go over the greatest verse of the Quran

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

and that is a tool curse,

00:03:17--> 00:03:24

which is basically in Surah Al Baqarah, the longest surah in the Quran,

00:03:25--> 00:03:27

and it is verse number 255.

00:03:28--> 00:03:35

First we go over the meanings of this area, this verse ayatul kursi

00:03:37--> 00:03:48

Allah subhanho wa Taala says Allahu La Ilaha Illa who will hire you, Allah, there is no deity, no God worthy of worship except him.

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

I'll tell you, I'll tell you the EverLiving

00:03:53--> 00:03:56

the Sustainer of everything that exists

00:03:57--> 00:04:08

Lahu Murphy's Law Hulu Sienna to one no latter Hulu CNET one I know neither drowsiness nor sleep. overtake him.

That can intercede with him? except by his permission? Yeah, Allah Medina add him wanna hunt for him? He knows what is before them. Meaning he knows what will happen to them in this life will not hold for him and what will come after them.

00:04:46--> 00:04:49

Meaning he knows what will happen to them in the hereafter.

00:04:50--> 00:04:57

What are your funabashi mineralnye he Illa de Masha and they will never

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

human beings

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

Will never encompass any of his knowledge to Hana, Hana, except that which he rose, except that which He wills.

00:05:10--> 00:05:13

What's the accuracy you want, he will all

00:05:14--> 00:05:17

his cursing his footstool

00:05:18--> 00:05:27

extends over the heavens and the earth while I do who have faloona

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

he feels no fatigue,

00:05:31--> 00:05:41

no tiredness, in guarding, and preserving them, the heavens and the earth will who will allow Him and He is

00:05:43--> 00:05:44

the Most High

00:05:45--> 00:05:46

and the most great.

00:05:48--> 00:05:58

And so this is ayatul kursi, the greatest verse in the Quran, as mentioned by the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam.

00:05:59--> 00:06:18

And many of us, in fact, almost every single Muslim has memorized this verse. However, how many of us have reflected over its meaning? How many of us even understand what Lawson Hana without it is telling us in this one great verse.

00:06:19--> 00:06:24

And we recite it on various occasions. And that is because due to its greatness,

00:06:25--> 00:06:44

due to its greatness, Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has mentioned various virtues of this verse, times and occasions when it can be recited. And so this verse is a protection.

00:06:46--> 00:06:48

It is a protection against a thought,

00:06:49--> 00:06:51

and his troops.

00:06:53--> 00:06:58

And the evidence for this is in the famous story of Abu Dhabi, Allahu Akbar,

00:06:59--> 00:07:00

when

00:07:01--> 00:07:04

he went to sleep,

00:07:05--> 00:07:08

and someone had come and stolen from him.

00:07:11--> 00:07:17

And so, this happened consecutively. Until the third night.

00:07:18--> 00:07:26

This individual came and told who the last one, he said, I will never come back to you. If you

00:07:27--> 00:07:37

if I teach you something, and you do it, and he said, What is it? So he said, recite ayatul kursi and you will be protected, your property will be protected.

00:07:39--> 00:07:48

And so the product and so Abu huraira the Allahu and went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and told him and told him what had happened. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him,

00:07:49--> 00:07:56

that Verily, he is a liar, he spoke the truth, even though he is a liar, he was shaitan.

00:07:57--> 00:08:13

And so ayatul kursi is a protection against shaitaan. And that is why the prophet SAW Selim instructed us to read Atul kursi on various occasions, such as, after every single Salah

00:08:14--> 00:08:15

after every single

00:08:17--> 00:08:23

Salah from the five dailies from the whacked among the carrot that we say after Salah is

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

also we have

00:08:27--> 00:08:34

in the morning and in the evening. And so there are various other cards that are said in the morning.

00:08:35--> 00:09:02

Before the sunrises, as well as in the evening, before the sun sets. These are called if we were to say them, memorize them and see them on a daily basis. They act as a protection for us from every single harm. And among these other car is intercourse. And also before going to sleep the prophet SAW Selim instructed us to recite surah ayat al kursi.

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

How does this verse act as a protection?

00:09:09--> 00:09:18

Just reciting these verses, or rather just reciting this verse? How does it act as a protection? Basically, the one who recited

00:09:19--> 00:09:35

understanding its meanings, reflecting and pondering over its meanings, his heart will become filled with a man in what Allah Subhana who data is telling us in this verse, He will have conviction of a loss of Hannah who would have had

00:09:36--> 00:09:59

his heart will be filled with a man antiochene conviction of a loss of Hannah who was Allah and knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Thus, when he recites it, he will be protected from the evils of shaitan Why? Because Allah Subhana who without is greater, then a shape on no matter how great his plots

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

his evil tricks may be

00:10:05--> 00:10:07

now the theme of ayatul kursi.

00:10:08--> 00:10:17

The theme of ayatul kursi is that it basically released us who Allah subhanho wa Taala is

00:10:19--> 00:10:21

and so it starts by mentioning

00:10:23--> 00:10:24

molars Greatest Name.

00:10:25--> 00:10:35

Allahu, Allahu, Allah. This name is a greatest of all last names, and a loss of pattern with that has many names.

00:10:36--> 00:10:38

How many names does a lot have?

00:10:40--> 00:11:31

99 the brother says, in fact, Allah subhanho wa Taala has 99 and more than 99 names. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned to us that whoever memorizes the 99 Names of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. He will enter agenda. But the scholars say that this does not mean that a lot of names are restricted and limited to 99. Rather, it is like someone who says, I have $100 that I'm going to give in soda. Do you understand from this, that this is the only wealth that this person has? He has no other money? No. He has 100 that he has saved for soda. But he also has more than that. So similarly, Allah subhanho wa Taala. He has many names. The evidence for that is that the

00:11:31--> 00:11:51

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in one of his daughters. He called upon the loss of Hannah who Adana, he said all by your names, and among the things that he mentioned is by those names, that you have kept a secret in the hidden secret knowledge with yourselves with yourself subhanho wa Taala, which proves

00:11:52--> 00:11:58

that a lot of names are not limited to a specific number.

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

We know 99 Names of Allah subhanho wa Taala. From what is mentioned in the Quran, and what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has mentioned to us. So whoever chooses 99 Names of Allah subhanho wa Taala memorizes them understands their meanings, and then act upon them, then he will be from the inhabitants of Jenna.

00:12:24--> 00:12:38

And so, Allah subhanho wa Taala starts ayatul kursi by mentioning his greatest name. And this name, Allah is the name that every single other name of Allah subhanho wa Taala can be traced back to.

00:12:39--> 00:12:45

And so all of the laws other names refer back to this one name, Allah.

00:12:46--> 00:12:50

And this one name, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:12:51--> 00:12:54

has been mentioned in the Quran.

00:12:57--> 00:13:02

In a total of 2697 times,

00:13:03--> 00:13:21

this name of Allah subhanho wa Taala, a lot has been mentioned in the Quran 2697 times, showing us the importance of it and the greatness of it, there is no other name greater than this name of a loss of Hannah, who What?

00:13:23--> 00:13:26

Allahu La Ilaha Illa who

00:13:27--> 00:13:36

this is the very doctrine of utter heat, the very basis of the religion of Islam.

00:13:38--> 00:13:42

A person needs to utter these words in order to become a Muslim.

00:13:43--> 00:13:51

And it is these words that if a person rejects, it causes him to leave the fold of Islam.

00:13:52--> 00:13:54

And so, the very foundation of the deed

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

is mentioned in just these few words, La ilaha illa Huwa.

00:14:03--> 00:14:09

These words basically comprise of affirmation and negation.

00:14:10--> 00:14:17

And so Allah says, La Ilaha there is no ILA there is no deity.

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

There is no God.

00:14:20--> 00:14:23

And so here is a negation.

00:14:24--> 00:14:44

Illa who, and then here is the affirmation except Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so in this one sentence, we have negation of all deities, all Gods everything that is worshipped all objects of worship, and then we have affirmation

00:14:45--> 00:14:52

of worship, for a loss of Hannah who went to Hannah, hello. And so a person is not a true Muslim.

00:14:54--> 00:15:00

He is not a true believer until he affirms that Allah alone deserves to be worshipped.

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

But also

00:15:02--> 00:15:38

he negates everything that is worshipped besides the loss of Hannah who had to had. This is something that very few Muslims understand. They think that the meaning of La ilaha illAllah, is that there is no god other than Allah Subhana who with data, but the reality is that there is no god deserving of worship besides a loss of Hannah, who without it, what does that mean? It means that everything else as worship other than Allah, it is false, and we must object to their worship, we must,

00:15:40--> 00:15:48

we must reject their worship, and we must openly declare that everything that is worshipped besides Allah is false.

00:15:50--> 00:15:55

And this meaning of La ilaha illAllah. here Allah mentions it.

00:15:57--> 00:16:01

In a very summarized for, in the next verse,

00:16:02--> 00:16:46

in the next verse after I attend courtesy, a loss of Hannah who attended elaborates on this concept of a Toshi. And so Allah says firming yuck for better booty, what you mean biLlahi for call the stem second, below what it was called, emphasis on Allah, Allah says, So whoever this believes in a tahu and autoboot is basically everything that is worshipped besides Allah subhanho wa Taala regardless of whether it is an idol, whether it is a human being, whether it is a system of governance, everything that is worshipped besides a lot, this is known as a topcoat. So Allah says from the yoke, for

00:16:47--> 00:17:10

whoever rejects and this believes in adulthood, well, you mean biLlahi and believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala Fokker the stem circuit wrote what was called MP sama, he has grasp held on to the most trustworthy handhold that will never break, he has basically grasped onto

00:17:11--> 00:17:21

the strongest rope, that if a person grabs onto, it will never break, and he will never lose a hold of it.

00:17:24--> 00:17:25

And so, although

00:17:27--> 00:17:35

we have a lot of ignorant people who have set up Gods besides Allah subhanho, wa Taala.

00:17:37--> 00:18:10

objects of worship, the fact remains, that the whole of creation, the entire creation belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala, who has no partner whatsoever, and so no one else, no one else is a partner to him, so Han, who would add in his attributes, characteristics, in his powers, nor in his rights. And so, we can easily say a lie is invented

00:18:11--> 00:18:29

a lie, a huge fabrication is invented, when they set up a god and a deity besides a loss of Hannah, who would to Hannah, when a loss of Hannah who would data alone is the only God deserving of worship.

00:18:32--> 00:18:40

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in ayatul, kursi, Allahu La Ilaha Illa who will hire you?

00:18:42--> 00:18:50

And how old are you, He is the living, the all living, the one who sustains the entire creation,

00:18:52--> 00:18:58

and so alive. And I'll tell you, these are two of the laws names.

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

And how you the the all living, the eternal, who never dies. And I'll call you, the one who sustains everything in creation.

00:19:11--> 00:19:24

And so I'll call you this name on consume is basically the one who has perfectly established himself without any support. This is awesome Hannah, who

00:19:26--> 00:19:30

he has established himself and he is not in need of anything.

00:19:31--> 00:19:39

He is not in need of anything. He is self sufficient. Unlike the creation, we are in need.

00:19:40--> 00:19:41

Without support,

00:19:42--> 00:19:43

we cannot live

00:19:44--> 00:19:48

and so a loss of Hannah who would die to his uncle you

00:19:49--> 00:19:50

and

00:19:51--> 00:19:53

he is the ones who have had who would tada

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

who establishes others. So he has established himself so Hannah, who

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

Hello, not in need of anything, not in need of his creation. And at the same time, he has established others, meaning he gives support to others, he has created this creation, the heavens, the earth, He has created mankind, he has created me and you. And after creating us, he sustained us, he provides for us, he maintains us. And so this is a reality of the meaning of this name of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:20:36--> 00:20:43

He is the self sufficient, he has established himself, so head to head, in a manner befitting himself.

00:20:45--> 00:21:06

We cannot even imagine how Allah subhanho wa Taala is, nor how he has established himself. But we know for a fact that he has established himself without any need of support, without any need of support, from his creation, from what he has created. And at the same time, he's so proud of who

00:21:07--> 00:21:16

sustains his creation provides for them, maintains them. And that is because the creation are in need, as I mentioned,

00:21:17--> 00:21:35

we are in need of provision of sustenance, of food, of air of water, etc. We are in need of his support. And that is what makes him unique, that he is the self sufficient, whereas everyone else is in need.

00:21:36--> 00:21:55

Allahu La Ilaha Illa Who will you notice how after Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions his soul right of being worshipped. Allahu La Ilaha Illa, who we mentioned, the meaning of this is that he should have who with data alone deserves worship.

00:21:56--> 00:22:03

Notice how immediately after that loss of Hannah, who had I mentioned these two names, and how can you?

00:22:04--> 00:22:09

And the reason for that? The reason for that is

00:22:11--> 00:22:13

that His perfection,

00:22:14--> 00:22:19

the perfection of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we notice from these tunings, and how he and

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

basically, these two names, show how perfect Allah subhanho wa Taala is, therefore showing us that he deserves to be worshipped.

00:22:34--> 00:23:12

And so after a while mentions that he's had who had done it alone deserves worship. He mentioned the reason for that. And that is because he is the all living the one who sustains his entire creation. So does it not make sense that he alone, be worshipped? Does it not make sense that we direct our worship to Allah alone, instead of directing it to others? Obviously, it does. And so this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Allahu La Ilaha and high alcohol

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

and this is something that even the Sahaba they understood, and so aboubaker probably Allahu Allah, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away,

00:23:28--> 00:23:30

or hamara de la Han, he didn't believe in it.

00:23:32--> 00:23:34

He said, Whoever says

00:23:35--> 00:23:40

that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is dead. Then I will come and cut off his throat.

00:23:42--> 00:23:44

So Abu Bakr radi Allahu Han, he came.

00:23:45--> 00:23:52

And he said in his famous statement, whoever among you used to worship Muhammad

00:23:54--> 00:24:08

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then indeed Mohammed is dead. But whoever used to worship a law than indeed a law is alive, and he can never die.

00:24:10--> 00:24:12

And so this was from

00:24:13--> 00:24:15

the Abubakar ob, Allahu Allah.

00:24:16--> 00:24:20

He understood that even though

00:24:21--> 00:24:27

our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the greatest of mankind. Even though

00:24:29--> 00:24:32

we respect him so much we venerate him so much.

00:24:33--> 00:24:38

In the end of the day, he is a human being. He is a creation of a loss of Hannah winter Hannah.

00:24:39--> 00:24:42

He is in need of a loss of Hannah who would tada

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

and as such,

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

he lives and he dies. Whereas Allah subhanho wa Taala he is the all living

00:24:53--> 00:24:55

and he can never die.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

He is the all living and he can never die.

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

Hana, Hana. He has existed from the eternal past, and he will exist until eternity. He is the all living

00:25:14--> 00:25:16

after that awesome Hana who Allah says

00:25:17--> 00:25:37

Allahu La Ilaha Illa who will hire you later? Who do who seen a two one no matter who Siena two, one Ah, no, neither drowsiness. slumber, nor sleep, overtake a loss of Hannah, who, what?

00:25:39--> 00:25:45

And so the word here that is used, the first word that is used is seen a

00:25:46--> 00:25:53

lot who see that one. What a tsunami. It basically means to you're

00:25:55--> 00:25:59

a person who feel sleepy, he starts to yawn.

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

He feels exhausted, drowsy. And so it is the beginning stages of sleep. It's asleep. It's the beginning stages of sleep.

00:26:13--> 00:26:20

Like some of you I know, you know, it's been a long day. And now you feel drowsy. You feel sleepy, but you're not sleeping.

00:26:21--> 00:26:47

And so there's a difference between the two. But a lot here in this verse. And in the statement he mentions both latter who seen a tune. Well, I know, sinner, drowsiness nor unknown, nor sleep overtake a loss of Hannah who with Allah. So why does Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned both over here. And why does he first negate

00:26:48--> 00:27:04

drowsiness then after that he negates sleep a lot he could have said that sleep does not overtake a lot. And that includes obviously, that includes drowsiness and the beginning stages of sleep.

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

This we say is basically from the Bulava of the

00:27:12--> 00:27:14

the eloquence of the Quran.

00:27:15--> 00:27:23

And it is this Bulava, this eloquent eloquence of the Quran. how, you know, certain words are used

00:27:24--> 00:27:39

and how certain sentences come before others. This is a study on its own known as the Bulava of the Quran. It is this Bulava that came as a challenge for kurush.

00:27:41--> 00:27:42

That here is a book

00:27:44--> 00:27:51

in your own language. And yet, you cannot come with something similar to it in its eloquence, in its Bella.

00:27:53--> 00:28:25

And so this is a challenge that stands until today. No one has brought a book similar to it. And the law has made this challenging for an more than once. Let them come with a book similar to it. Even if they were to come with a book and bring all the witnesses they want, they will never be able to bring a book similar to it. This is the middle of the miracle that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent with. And so every single Prophet came with a miracle

00:28:27--> 00:28:32

for his people from that which was prevalent

00:28:33--> 00:28:35

in their time,

00:28:37--> 00:28:40

that which was prevalent in their time. And so musala insulin

00:28:41--> 00:29:28

magic was something big in his time. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him signs that challenged to sorcery, and the magic of the magicians. Are you sorry Sam came and cured the sick and brought life to the dead. Why? Because medicine was developing in his time. And so our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his miracle, his greatest miracle was the Quran. Why? Because the Arabs reached their peak in terms of the Arabic language and the eloquence of the Arabic language. And their their ports were well known. And so they had reached the peak of,

00:29:29--> 00:29:38

of the Arabic language in their civil age in their civilization. And so Allah subhana wa tada sent them something that would challenge their

00:29:39--> 00:29:42

poets and their Arabic literature.

00:29:44--> 00:30:00

And so we say that this is from the Bulava of the Quran the fact that Allah subhanahu wa tada hear and what does he say? Let Hulu Siena tune when are known. Neither drowsiness nor sleep overtake a loss of health.

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

Who? What?

00:30:02--> 00:30:19

And so it is as if a loss of Hannah who without it says here, no drowsiness no Sina no drowsiness overtakes a loss of Hannah who Adana. So, how can sleep overtake him when sleep is far worse.

00:30:21--> 00:30:23

And so, this is the eloquence of the

00:30:25--> 00:30:36

how can how can sleep overtake Allah subhanho wa Taala when not even the beginning stages of sleep overtake him. So, Hannah, who, what?

00:30:38--> 00:30:40

And so, contemplate, reflect

00:30:41--> 00:30:44

over this concept

00:30:46--> 00:30:47

there is no king,

00:30:48--> 00:30:51

there is no leader in the world,

00:30:53--> 00:30:55

no matter how keen he is,

00:30:56--> 00:31:05

on protecting his authority, and his subjects, no matter how much he tries,

00:31:08--> 00:31:09

no matter how much he tries,

00:31:12--> 00:31:14

he cannot go for a few days without sleep,

00:31:15--> 00:31:21

he cannot go for a few days without sleep. So Glory be to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:31:23--> 00:31:24

the old living

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

the Malik,

00:31:29--> 00:31:48

the owner of his dominion, and the king, who never gets tired and never sleeps. And so, that is a message that Allah subhanahu wa tada wants us to understand. From these words, let who who seen a tune will also reflect,

00:31:50--> 00:31:56

reflect how after a loss of Hannah who attalla mentioned his attribute of life, and how

00:31:58--> 00:32:29

he immediately followed that up by negating sleep from himself. So this contains a subtle meaning, what meaning is that basically, sleep is a minor form of death. Sleep is a minor form of death, as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned in an authentic hadith and so a loss of Hannah who without a hearing negated from himself, drowsiness and sleep

00:32:31--> 00:32:39

and sleep is a minor form of death. When does Allah mentioned this? After having mentioned

00:32:40--> 00:32:44

how he is the all living, he does not die?

00:32:47--> 00:32:51

And so Allah subhanahu wa tada says, latter who do who seem to well I know.

00:32:53--> 00:33:09

And this also refutes the concept of a loss of Hannah who had to Hannah being weak, or being attributed with weakness and limitation to his power.

00:33:11--> 00:33:17

And so, Allah Subhana Hua data uses this statement to prove that anyone who sleeps

00:33:18--> 00:33:19

cannot be God.

00:33:21--> 00:33:32

Whoever claims to be a deity, and a God, but yet, he is attributed with tyrants with sleep, that he cannot be a true God.

00:33:34--> 00:33:36

And so, if he was asleep,

00:33:37--> 00:33:44

then who would manage and maintain this entire universe that he claims to be in control of

00:33:46--> 00:34:17

and so the Christians, they attribute to Allah Subhana, who were to Hana, fatigue, and sleep, and we find in the corrupted Bible, the various places where they mentioned that Allah subhanho wa Taala became tired, or that Allah subhana wa tada was sleeping. And so it mentions, for example, in Genesis, it says, on the seventh day, God ended his work which he had made, and he rested on the seventh day, from all the work which he had made.

00:34:18--> 00:35:00

And so they attribute rest and fatigue to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Obviously Allah is free of such weaknesses. Allah subhanho wa Taala has refuted this Christian claim in another place in the Quran in surah cough and so Allah subhanho wa Taala says Welcome to Calacanis center where it will Aruba one Aveda who Nafisi at a young woman sent me lube. And indeed We created the heavens and the earth and everything that is between them in six days. So law firms Yes, he created the creation in six days. But what does the law say after that? Does he say that on the seventh

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

He took a rest. No. He says, Well Ma'am, I sent him in the hood and no fatigue even touched us. No fatigue, even touched me. So Hannah who, what?

00:35:14--> 00:35:16

And then Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:35:18--> 00:35:22

He says Lahu math is semi YT wanna fill or

00:35:24--> 00:35:34

Lahu math is semi YT wanna fill on To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth.

00:35:36--> 00:36:13

And so here Allah subhanahu wa tada continues to describe to us about himself. So Hanna who went ahead, he mentioned that he is the one deserving of worship. And then he mentioned that he is the only living and the one who sustains his creation. And then he mentioned that no drowsiness no sleep, overtakes him subhana wa Tada. Then he Subhana who attallah here he mentioned that he is the master, the owner of the earth, and the heavens,

00:36:14--> 00:36:50

at each and every single thing that exists within the heavens, and the earth, he's have had over 200 is the master, the owner, the possessor of everything, in his dominion, in his creation, no one, no matter who it is, shares with Allah subhanho wa Taala. In his dominion, he is the sole owner and possessor of everything in, in this creation, in the heaven, and on earth.

00:36:52--> 00:36:59

And so anyone or anything that is conceived, to be a God, He will surely have a part

00:37:01--> 00:37:08

a part in terms of, you know, owning something, in this in this universe.

00:37:09--> 00:37:15

But here, Allah subhanho wa Taala, he shows us that he sort of had who

00:37:16--> 00:37:23

is the only one deserving of worship. Why? Because he alone,

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

in his hand is the dominion. He alone possesses and owns, everything that is in,

00:37:34--> 00:37:36

in this creation. And so,

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

every single individual,

00:37:41--> 00:37:44

no matter who it is, whether it be a prophet,

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

even the angels,

00:37:48--> 00:37:52

they are all part of the loss of Hannah who had to hide his possession.

00:37:53--> 00:38:00

They are all part of a loss of Hannah, who without his property. And so how does it make sense

00:38:01--> 00:38:02

for

00:38:04--> 00:38:07

a slave, to worship and obviously,

00:38:08--> 00:38:36

the prophets of Allah, the messengers, even the angels, they are all slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why? Because they are under the control of a loss of Hannah what dad? They are the subjects of a loss of Hannah who went to Hana in his dominion. So how does it make sense now for someone, a slave of a lot to come and worship, and honestly, and so this once again, reiterate

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

the whole concept of Toshi, and directing our worship to Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, and sending a message to us, that Allah alone deserves to be worshipped. No one besides Him, deserves to be worshipped.

00:38:55--> 00:39:00

And here Allah subhanho wa Taala says, lo, whom after Santa watty, wonderful

00:39:02--> 00:39:04

law who basically means to him,

00:39:05--> 00:39:08

belongs, he possesses.

00:39:09--> 00:39:19

And this basically means three things. It means, first of all, that Allah Subhana, who has data is the creator of everything.

00:39:21--> 00:39:30

And secondly, it means that he is the owner of everything, he created everything. And he also has the rights of ownership.

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

And thirdly, he is the master of all the servants. He is our master.

00:39:40--> 00:39:53

He is our Lord Subhana. Who, what to had, there is no other creator. There is no other owner. And there is no other master or Lord besides Allah Subhana who, what?

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

And so these are basically the characteristics of a rubia lordship

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

And so whoever is characterized with characteristics and attributes of lordship, obviously, he alone deserves to be worshipped. And that is why we say that Allah being the Lord Subhana, WA Tada. This necessitates that we worship Him alone, and not anyone else besides.

00:40:23--> 00:40:24

Also think about,

00:40:26--> 00:40:30

think about the largest vastest property

00:40:31--> 00:40:32

that someone can own,

00:40:33--> 00:40:34

a wealthy businessman,

00:40:35--> 00:40:37

or let's say, a king,

00:40:38--> 00:40:50

a leader of a country, think about how vast and massive his authorities how spacious how huge his country is.

00:40:52--> 00:41:03

Once you think about that, you will realize that this no matter how big it is, even if he had control and authority over the entire world,

00:41:04--> 00:41:10

it is only a small fraction. Rather, it is only a small speck

00:41:11--> 00:41:24

of this massive universe, and creation of a loss of Hannah, who had to Hannah, that he saw Hannah, who were to Hannah, is the king and owner of

00:41:25--> 00:41:29

and so once again, this should send a message to each and every single one of us

00:41:30--> 00:41:36

that no matter how big somebody is, there is someone greater than him.

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

And that is a loss of Hannah, who, what?

00:41:42--> 00:41:56

And then a loss of Hannah, who would die that says Mandela De Anza, who elaborate it may, who is it that can intercede with him, except by his permissions of how to who What?

00:41:58--> 00:42:12

This basically refutes the wrong notion of those who are basically under the delusion that those they worship besides a law, whether it be saints or angels,

00:42:14--> 00:42:15

other human beings,

00:42:17--> 00:42:21

their delusion that these objects of worship,

00:42:22--> 00:42:41

have a great influence upon Allah subhanho wa Taala and that they will intercede for them with Allah subhanho wa Taala. As the Quran said, with regards to their idols, what did they say they said, We do not worship these idols except as intercessors between us and Allah.

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

And so, here a loss of Hannah who without a refutes them

00:42:48--> 00:43:12

even if they were not idols, even if they were angels, those who are close to Allah subhana wa Tada. It does not give them the right to be worshipped besides Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why? Because even if they went to intercede before Allah subhanho wa Taala they will not be able to intercede

00:43:13--> 00:43:17

even if it was our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:43:18--> 00:43:28

the best of mankind. Even he cannot go and intercede and ask Allah Subhana who Adana on behalf of somebody else, except

00:43:30--> 00:43:45

except by the permission of Allah Subhana who with the Hannah, Linda lady, who elaborated me who can intercede before him subhanho wa Taala, except by his permission.

00:43:46--> 00:43:54

And so, he so had a who attalla is the rub the Lord of the dunya and

00:43:55--> 00:43:59

even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will come on the Day of Judgment.

00:44:01--> 00:44:29

And ask Allah subhanho wa Taala seek His permission to intercede he will not simply go and intercede. He has not promised anyone on Earth, that he will be able to benefit them. Before a loss of Hannah who had data on the Day of Judgment, even his own daughter. He said to her, yeah, Fatima, I cannot avail you on the Day of Judgment before of loss of Hannah who, what?

00:44:30--> 00:44:33

Even though he is who he is.

00:44:34--> 00:44:37

And so, there are various kinds of intersections.

00:44:39--> 00:44:48

The greatest Shatha or the greatest intercession will be the one that is saved for our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the day of judgment

00:44:49--> 00:44:58

when all of mankind will be resurrected and be brought before the plains of the judgment

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

Not sure.

00:45:02--> 00:45:08

And they will be sweating. And they will be in a state of horror, terrifying. They don't know what's going to happen.

00:45:10--> 00:45:12

They know the burden that they're carrying with them.

00:45:14--> 00:45:26

And they will go to each and every single prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala telling him go to Allah till a lot to come and start the judgment, starting from Adam.

00:45:27--> 00:45:30

And each and every single prophet will refuse.

00:45:32--> 00:45:57

This is how great that they will be. there even the prophets will refuse to intercede before a loss of Hannah who would have simply asked me a lot to come and start the judgment until they reach our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he will go before a loss of Hannah who attended to the throne and he will prostrate make sense

00:45:58--> 00:46:24

and then he will praise Allah subhana wa tada with praises that he does not even know right now what these praises are, they will just come to him. He will praise Allah subhanahu wa tada until he will ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to come and start the session. This is known as a chef Cobra, the major intercession which is unique to our Prophet sallallahu and he wasn't.

00:46:26--> 00:46:44

But there are other intercessions as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will intercede on that day for the believers who end up in Hellfire due to due to their major savings, he will take them out and do to him to his intercession, they will end up in Jannah also

00:46:45--> 00:46:58

raising the rank of the believers in Jenna due to due to the intercession of the professor send them they will rise in rank and other intersections which are profits on the walk values and will have

00:46:59--> 00:47:18

also others will be able to intercede as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned such as a child before they reach the age of puberty if they were to die, they will intercede on behalf of their parents on the Day of Judgment. Also, we have the Shaheed The one who dies,

00:47:19--> 00:47:28

in the way of a loss of Hannah who had died on the battlefield, he will be able to intercede on behalf of 70 of his family members. Also we have fasting,

00:47:29--> 00:47:51

we have fasting which will come on that day. And it will say Oh Allah, I prevented him from food and his desires. So let me intercede on his behalf and the Quran will also come on that day and intercede will say Oh Allah, I prevented him from sleeping at night in the month of Ramadan.

00:47:52--> 00:48:42

So let me intercede on his behalf. It should be noted with regards to intercession that there must be three conditions for any intercession to be valid. The first is that Allah must grant permission as we mentioned, that no one will be able to intercede except by a laws permission. Once a laws permission is granted, someone can intercede. The second condition is that a lot must be pleased with the one who is interceding. And the third condition is that the one who is being interceded for a law must be pleased with him as well. This proves to us that the cafe will never be able to benefit from any intercession because Allah is not pleased with

00:48:44--> 00:49:20

Ya Allah Medina ad him one 100 for whom he knows what is before them, meaning what will happen to them in this dunya and he knows what is to come after them meaning, what will happen to them in the hereafter. And so, in the statement or loss of Hannah, who would to Allah, He tells us that he alone has full knowledge of everything, including the unseen and so, no one is allowed to claim to have knowledge of the unseen of the future. This knowledge is only with a loss of Hannah who would die.

00:49:22--> 00:49:24

Why does the loss of Hannah who Italia mention

00:49:25--> 00:49:40

his knowledge here, what is he mentioned his knowledge here after mentioning his complete power and authority over this universe. Basically, it is as if a loss of Hannah who what data is saying

00:49:41--> 00:49:59

how can anyone interfere in the management of this universe when no one possesses knowledge of how to run this universe? And so in order to manage anything, the prerequisite for that is that you must have knowledge

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

In order to become a manager of a company, someone will ask you for your degrees. What did you study? And so how can anyone manage this entire universe when he doesn't have knowledge to do so? And so that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions his knowledge here. Yeah, I'm gonna dine at him, when

00:50:24--> 00:50:38

he knows what is going to happen to them in this world, and he knows what is going to happen to them in the hereafter Therefore, he knows everything. If he knows the future, if he has knowledge of the unseen then he knows everything.

00:50:40--> 00:50:45

When are you gonna be shaken mineralnye ilahi Masha,

00:50:46--> 00:51:05

and they the creation, human beings, the jinn will never encompass anything of his knowledge, except what he said, Hannah, who was Anna Williams. And so we only know that which Allah Subhana, who was the head of wills, for us to know.

00:51:06--> 00:51:08

And so in the story of Musa and hidden

00:51:10--> 00:51:26

when Musa went to go and learn from Hitler, when he met him, and they came across the sea, Hitler, he saw a bird basically take from the water of the sea. And Hitler, he said,

00:51:27--> 00:51:34

that my knowledge and your knowledge are Mussa compared to the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala is nothing

00:51:35--> 00:52:04

except like the comparison of this bird taking that one drop from this huge, vast ocean. And so the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala is great. And whatever we know, it is limited. Notice how here Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, Well, are you here to be shaman help me, he does not say when are you gonna be helped me? He does not say

00:52:05--> 00:52:58

nothing he does not say here, and they will never encompass of his knowledge of law says they will never encompass anything of his knowledge, nothing, not even the smallest of his knowledge. So how will we be able to encompass? And basically what this means is that even if we have knowledge of something, we have knowledge of it from one angle, from one perspective, not from all perspectives. Whereas Allah subhanahu wa Hanna, his knowledge is of that same thing, from the perspective that we have knowledge of, and all other perspectives. And that's why we say that Allah subhanho wa Taala He knows everything, including the past and the future. And he also knows that which will never happen

00:52:59--> 00:53:07

if it was to happen, how it will happen. Allah subhana wa Tada. has knowledge even of that.

00:53:08--> 00:53:58

What's the accuracy or similarity? Well, his kursi extends over the heavens and earth, the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada is basically his footstool. It should not be it should not be confused with the throne of Allah Subhana who would to Allah, why because the throne it is the arch of Allah subhanho wa Taala and in one narration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made a comparison between the two. And so the prophet SAW Selim said, the universe, this entire creation, the heavens and the earth, compared to Allah could see his footstool is like a ring that you throw into a huge, empty desert. And Allah is courtesy. Compared to his harsh his throne is like a ring in this huge,

00:53:58--> 00:54:00

massive desert.

00:54:01--> 00:54:17

And so, the footstool of a loss of Hannah who were to Hannah is not his throne, a lost throne. He has risen above it. He is above his throne, and his footstool is a place for his feet. And this should not be something that

00:54:19--> 00:54:31

a Muslim should have any trouble believing in. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala His attributes can never resemble the attributes of his creation.

00:54:32--> 00:54:38

And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, while area una una

00:54:39--> 00:54:44

and he feels no fatigue, in guarding, and preserving them,

00:54:45--> 00:55:00

this entire universe, the heavens the earth, and the footstool of a loss of Hannah who Allah extends over the heavens and the earth. And then the throne of a loss of Hannah who had to Hannah is the largest of the last person

00:55:00--> 00:55:05

Creation, even larger, then this entire universe.

00:55:06--> 00:55:56

So imagine Allah subhanho wa Taala how great Allah Subhana who would have had it must be a law concludes by saying, When are you Ooh hoo, hoo hoo Nah, he feels no fatigue in guarding over this massive creation. And so Allah Subhana, who Atlanta uses the statement to prove that he alone deserves to be worshipped. Why? Because he does not feel fatigued. He guards over this entire universe. Unlike one of us, if there was to be a security guard, who was securing a building, for just a few hours, he would start feeling fatigued, and he would need sleep. Whereas a loss of Hannah who would data says that he feels no fatigue in guarding and protecting his universe. Wha hoo, well,

00:55:56--> 00:56:26

Ali, you will have Him and He is the Most High, the most great he's had who were to Hana is the Most High, there is nothing higher than him. So Hannah, who went to Hana, he is high above his creation, there is nothing superior to him. And there is nothing above him. So Hannah, who were to Allah, He saw Hannah who without it is above his throne, the highest of his creation. And at the same time, he is

00:56:27--> 00:56:45

the most great, he is the most great in regards to himself. So Hannah, what data there is not greater than Him, and He is also the most great with regards to his attributes, and his dominion. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to grant us.

00:56:46--> 00:57:11

Amen. And you'll see in him some Hannah who went to Hana, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala. To grant us the fear that he's had and who Italia deserves due to his greatness. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the best of this life and the best of the asherah masala law who was Solomon Islands Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi ajmeri
