smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Shafi lambay mousseline Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Allah you It was so seldom just even Kaziranga sera abajo sisters. It's a strange

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

thing to talk about this, but in reflecting on the Horan,

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

one of my friends asked me this question and said how can you persuade? or How can I persuade a Muslim who does not pray that he should pray?

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

Now it's a strange question because it's like asking

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


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

who has a

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

you know, who has a say a platinum

00:00:51 --> 00:01:12

card without any spending limits, and is free to spend whatever he wants. But this person is actually begging on the street asking people for to give him a couple of dollars to buy bread. And you ask him what what are you doing? I mean, you know, you have this, you can buy the whole the whole bread shop.

00:01:14 --> 00:01:17

Just by swiping the card and you are asking you're begging people to why

00:01:18 --> 00:02:03

this is the issue. How do you persuade a Muslim to pray? I mean, why should you persuade a Muslim to pray? A Muslim is somebody who should understand that what is the what is the prayer the prayer is the biggest strength the biggest resource the biggest, powerful thing that he has or she has? And if they don't want to use it, what is the point of having it right what is the point of having it Salah is the connection dollars run out and a Salah is when I'm talking to us Renata, Salah is where I'm standing before Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah is with me everywhere in any situation but in Salah I'm consciously with Allah Serrano data, because I want to be with Allah subhanho wa Taala Salah is

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

the is the renewing of my allegiance to Allah Serrano that

00:02:07 --> 00:02:33

is like having a passport. And if you allowed to lapse and it becomes invalid then when you need to use it you are stuck because now you land in a place and you find that your passport is not valid what happens you go to jail because there is no way or you get deported in this case but you know the the journey I'm talking about there's no deportation there's no going back there's no returning to where we came from. So Salah is the absolute

00:02:35 --> 00:03:20

the boundary line the boundary condition and that is the reason why so seldom when he draws spoke about Salah he said Allah had already been an hour by now who masala Forman our other half God Guevara kumbhakarna li salatu wa sallam, he said that the covenant the dividing line, the differentiator between them and as meaning people who are not Muslim and Muslims, is the salah and the one who lives it has left Islam. He said he has committed Kufa the Sahaba were in many cases, our differences of opinion but this is one matter on which all the sahabas were multivac and they were completely agreed upon that the one who has left Salah has left Islam now why would you want to

00:03:20 --> 00:04:10

do that? Think about that, because this journey that we are going to go on which is the journey of of this life where we go into the next stage of life. It's not annihilation is the next stage of life. Which is when we go into the animal barsuk into our cohort. The first question that is going to be asked is about Allah subhana wa salamandre book and we say Robbie Allah, and how do we set up by Allah when we never accepted Allah subhanaw taala as our Rabbi worshiping Him, when a person said I shall Allah illallah wa shawanna Mohammed Al rasulillah La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, the physical manifestation the Amelie Jama of this thing, the, the physical expression of this

00:04:10 --> 00:04:19

kalama is the Salah. Because how can I say I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah, and then I don't worship Allah.

00:04:20 --> 00:04:37

So what is this bearing witness? What am I bearing witness to? What is the value or the point of my bearing witness to something which I am not myself practicing? My brothers and sisters, there is no I cannot possibly overemphasize the importance of Salah let me

00:04:38 --> 00:04:59

narrate for you a beautiful head is good see where our soul has told us that Allah subhanho wa Taala says that when my slave worships me as I have directed him to worship worship B which is the five for Salawat in Masada, Allah cannot Allah mamina kita mahkota Allah said the Salah has been made for on the believers

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

specific times. So here Allah router is saying that if my slave worships me, as I have specified, then it is incumbent upon me I take the responsibility on myself to forgive him and enter him into john. Right? What more beautiful

00:05:19 --> 00:05:29

reassurance Do we want Allah saying it is his responsibility jelajah Lalo to enter and enter us into Jannah, provided we pray the five for Salawat on time,

00:05:32 --> 00:06:12

the day is going to come when molecules will come for us, a day is going to come when we will go into our COBOL we'll go into our griffes Believe me at that time to be there and not have Salah not having prayed. And because we did not pray, may Allah protect us from this if Allah subhanaw taala puts us among the list of people who did not have any belief. So Allah, imagine what kind of fate that is a nobody but nobody can help you and me because we will be alone in that grave, in a Dark Pit in the in the earth, and nothing to illuminate that because the nature of Allah subhanho wa Taala we should have eliminated that pit. We never accepted this life. And whatever you do not

00:06:12 --> 00:06:15

accept in this life will not come for you in the next life.

00:06:17 --> 00:07:07

And that is why it's so critically important. Now, how can we change the state and make our Salah, a thing of great joy, rejuvenating the spirit strengthening the heart and connecting us to the only one who has the power to change our lives and make us winners in both worlds. How can we do this? We can do this by praying deliberately and thoughtfully and not mechanically, please reflect on the importance of the NEA insula. Why is it necessary to make the NEA it's not because Allah subhanaw taala doesn't know what we are doing. It is so that we remind ourselves of what we are about to do. And so that we do it deliberately and consciously and thankfully, with the sense of all and

00:07:07 --> 00:07:19

gratitude, to be able to stand in the presence of Allah subhana wa Jalla gelila Ireland sisters I cannot possibly overemphasize the importance of connecting to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:07:20 --> 00:07:36

the Salah is the tool to do that. But sadly even our even in Salah, our attention wanders and we have made Salah a mechanical thing to be performed. Allah, Allah use the term establish

00:07:37 --> 00:08:13

a team of Salah kamati Salah, but we insist on calling it perform right? We read Salah, we perform Salah, we make Salah nobody establishes Salah in Allahu ala halogen. It's not a matter of semantics and words. Whatever we say is an is an indication of our attitude. If I want to establish Salah then I will approach the line in a particular way. If I'm performing then it's a different way if I'm just reading or making namaz then it's a different way. Right. So please, Allah subhanaw taala told us a key musala

00:08:14 --> 00:09:02

establish Salah. So let us focus on this. Approach Salah very thoughtfully and very consciously. That is why it is a performance because we treat it like a performance and a seeker of Allah and the obedience to Him geladeira who is never established in our lives. Salah is the microcosm for the rest of our life. How we are in Salah, so we are in life. Somebody else has busted around to Lally. He said I was I'm having difficulties in my life and this is happening that's happening. He said look at your Salah. What is the quality of your Salah. He said if you find difficulties happening in your life, look at the quality of your Salah. If you have children who are disobedient to you look

00:09:02 --> 00:09:45

at the quality of your Salah. He's not saying look at the quality of this or his yoga because you are disobedient to Allah. You will treat Salah with disdain. You treat Salah as if it's unimportant, and that gets reflected in your life and in the lives of those who are in your care. One of the therapists early and he said that if I'm writing an animal or riding a horse or a gamble or something, and if it misbehaves, right if it bucks and if it does whatever it does to throw me off. Then I focus on my Salah they say there is something wrong and my Salah, which is getting reflected in how this animal is behaving. Salah is very very powerful to Allah May Allah grant us the trophy.

00:09:45 --> 00:09:57

And that's why I keep on harping about the importance of the hedges. It's so critically important. We need to focus on our Salah, we need to improve the quality of our Salah if we want anything at all in life

00:09:58 --> 00:09:59

right so let us see

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

How can we

00:10:03 --> 00:10:39

change our Salah? So that obedience to Allah subhanho data gets established in our lives, how can we change our Salah so that the Salah becomes a tool to solve all our problems in this life and becomes an intercessor for us in our graves and on the day of judgment and our last round that I mentioned this last round that I said yeah, you will live in our monastery You know, this somebody was Salah, Allah said take the oil believe take the help is the and take the help of sovereign Salah make the best effort and then pray and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for relief

00:10:40 --> 00:10:56

be suffering or Salah. So both are very very important to have server and to also to to pray. So Salah is a tool so there is no Salah in the cover, right? The fact that Salah will also give you a journal the fact that Salah will open the doors of

00:10:57 --> 00:11:11

Jana for us the Salah, the fact that Salah will intercede for us and and protect us against the other cover and so on. These are these are the bonuses of Salah hamdulillah but the Salah is a tool to be used in this life.

00:11:13 --> 00:11:34

It is a tool to solve our worldly problems. So let's see how we can change that man. Now we can only connect Allah Ronald Allah by responding to his column. How can we connect if we are dead to the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala if we don't respond, unless we're done I mentioned the effect of his column

00:11:35 --> 00:12:02

on a mountain if it was sent down on it, right you know the I have absolutely no wonder luchador khorana Allah jabali la Ito Hashimoto saddam in Casa de la. And I said we give the example with Rodrigo holiness, the Aloma Taka Kuru, Allah said the Andes, if this column of Allah tala were to be sent down newzoo on a mountain, the mountain would humble itself would crumble to dust.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:07

And Allah said, we give these examples to people so that they will reflect

00:12:08 --> 00:12:38

net to think about that. And let's reflect on this, we respond even to a curse, but we do not respond to the world to the word of Allah Subhana Allah even though the curse by definition is false, and the caliber of Allah subhanaw taala is the truth. Right Think about this, if somebody curses you or somebody you know uses bad language and in profanity and and if somebody curses you then obviously he is speaking He is lying because you're not what he whatever is calling you.

00:12:40 --> 00:12:46

I don't want to use the curse word does want to explain I'm sure you understand this. See if a person is calling you whatever is calling He's lying.

00:12:48 --> 00:12:51

But does it bother you? Will you effect will you be affected by that?

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

But here is Allah subhanaw taala speaking to us, this is the the truest of speech.

00:12:59 --> 00:13:03

In the US call us. Karate Kid Allah

00:13:04 --> 00:13:18

said the most true speech is the kid of Allah subhanaw taala. But when we read the column of Allah, when we recite the column of Allah, when we listened to the caliber of Allah, no effect. What does it tell us about the about our hearts? What kind of hearts do we have?

00:13:20 --> 00:13:29

net it's only if we reflect on the Quran that we can reach a state where we are responsive to us vanita to begin with,

00:13:30 --> 00:14:16

I thought I would take as a pointer, the surah that we decide most often in every salah and without with the Salah is not complete or accepted. So the fattier let's reflect on what we say when we recite this glorious surah so that we can remember this when we decided and listen to it recitation and enable ourselves to connect with Allah subhanaw taala. My brother sisters, let us reflect on the Hadees which Imam Muslim recorded in Is he aware on the authority of hobo hora Delano from rusada. Salam, Allah. Allah had said, I have divided the prayer between myself and my slave into two halves. And my slave shall have what he has asked for when the slave says al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

00:14:16 --> 00:14:39

Allah subhanho wa Taala says Hamdani, Robbie hamadani Robbie, my slave has praised me. My slave has praised me when the slaves that are hamdulillah Robert Allah mean What is he saying? He says all praise and all thanks to Allah Serrano data, who is the ROB who is the Protector, creator, sustainer, maintainer of everything in the universe.

00:14:40 --> 00:14:59

So when the slave says that Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Allah subhanaw taala says, How is that Rob be my slave has praised me and when he says the Rahmani Raheem, when he says the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. Allah subhanaw taala says, isn't Ali Abdi my slave has extraordinary and when he says Valley kiyomi

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

Allah Serrano della says Majid Annie Abdi, my slavers glorified me and when he says he cannot Buddha we are gonna serene. Allah subhanho wa Taala said hi benei webinar Abdi Wali Abdi, my son, this is between me and my slave, and my slave will have what he has asked for. And then the slave says they know Serato mustafi sirata livina Aram jolly him writing model devialet him Allah.

00:15:30 --> 00:15:41

Allah Allah Allah Allah says, Lee Abdi, Wali of the masala, this is for my slave, and my slave shall have what he has asked for,

00:15:42 --> 00:16:09

nevertheless, is this. It is for this reason, in deference to the response of Allah subhanaw taala to each eye. That also does Allah Salam used to recite this surah eye by eye, and not continuously, it is not forbidden to recite it continuously. But the whole point of Salah is not to hurry through it, it's not to rush through it. It is to do it slowly and deliberately and consciously and do it in a way where we

00:16:11 --> 00:17:00

where we can taste it, the sweetness of it, and we can reflect on what we are listening to. Let's live let's reflect simply on two thoughts. One there, Allah subhanho wa Taala is actually listening and responding in real time to us when we pray, and besides horrible fathia and that Allah subhanaw taala used the term Abdi, my slave, when he mentioned the person who is praying, that way of address alone is enough to send the one who understand what he is doing and reflect on this habit into a state of ecstatic joy, that he worships a living God who is real, and who listens to him and responds in such an effective affectionate and personal way. What more can we What more can you ask

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

for this man right? What more can be asked? Right? So when you are when we pray. I we said somebody who's reluctant to pray, must really seriously think about this and say why am I reluctant to pray because this is my Rob This is my Allah. This is my Rob jelajah Rollo, who a who loves me so much, and who has given me this access to him free access 24 seven, I'm not talking about the five faults, those are of course, for them, they are extremely important that the most important thing in the in the dean and in our lives and we must respect that but if anyone wants to bread anytime, right except for the private, private private at times, in the in, at sunrise and sunset, if a person

00:17:41 --> 00:17:42

wants to pray at any time you can pray.

00:17:44 --> 00:17:49

Allah is not for of prohibited anybody from praying that there are there are the

00:17:50 --> 00:18:06

there is the you know, the conditional Voodoo and so on. But other than that, anybody can pray. Now, what must we say we have access, we don't have access to some King or some, you know, rich man or something, we have access to the creator of the entire universe.

00:18:10 --> 00:18:13

And this access was given to us by him jelajah Lalo.

00:18:16 --> 00:18:22

how grateful we must be. Now if somebody does not want to pray, what are you seeing?

00:18:23 --> 00:18:30

That is an expression of the worst form of ingratitude because you are saying that even though I have access? No, I'm not interested in that 11?

00:18:32 --> 00:18:42

how tragic How sad is that situation? And imagine no matter what you say, whether you're interested or not, one day you will meet Allah. One day I will meet Allah.

00:18:43 --> 00:19:01

Then what do I do? I meet Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I'm going to stand there in front of his throne. And I'm going to say no, I'm sorry, I'm not I was not interested in talking to you. I was not interested in in worshipping you are interested in buying before you. I was not interested in asking you for help when I knew that there is no one else who can help me.

00:19:05 --> 00:19:30

If a person who is not a Muslim does not understand all of these guys, that is understandable, but a person who is a Muslim and who doesn't want to pray, what can you say? how utterly blind and how utterly tragic is that? And how completely unnecessary Alhamdulillah Allah gave you Islam, Allah subhanaw taala cause you to be born in a Muslim family. Allah subhanaw taala cause the the other to be called in your year as soon as you were born.

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

And you want to trash all of these Namath and all of these blessings of Allah subhanaw taala because of your laziness, or I don't know what arrogance.

00:19:40 --> 00:19:42

So let's reflect on the surah

00:19:43 --> 00:19:52

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, the surah begins with this. This is the first Ayat of surah of the Koran. It is also the Sunnah to start any action with this iron

00:19:53 --> 00:19:59

and it is the first Ayat of Surah Fatiha so Bismillah Rama Rama is the idols of the Fatah. Please do not

00:20:00 --> 00:20:38

Not recite it, you can, there's a difference of opinion. Some of the Sahaba decided it loudly some recited it softly and built both based on what rasulillah salam did so we decided it softly sometimes and he decided it loudly sometimes, but he never missed it because this is it. Now this is one of the ayat of Surah Fatiha so please do not miss it. I want to reflect that when we say Bismillah we are actually reciting and eyes of the Koran we are beginning that action by reciting Koran. Imagine the bulk of that. So every action of the Muslim begins with Bismillah and should begin with Bismillah

00:20:40 --> 00:20:40


00:20:41 --> 00:20:59

Naturally, the Hadees were also told us that Allah subhanaw taala rewards the believer with 10 as an ad for every letter of the Quran will also apply inshallah to anyone who decides this ayah Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim with that consciousness hoping for reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:21:01 --> 00:21:05

To then has an ad for every letter of the

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

of the ayah. So here we have this Bismillah masama. So that is 30 then Allah, it is Olive, love her and then it is

00:21:19 --> 00:21:51

Chad does or LA, then iraq man Olive lamb or ah ha Meem known and then our Rahim Allah for Allah ma higher and merge. Now hire and mean now think about this that this is multiply that each of these letters by 10 that is the number of hazards we just said Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim we got all this all these hazards in our account. So make it a habit. Always everything must begin with Bismillah Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.

00:21:52 --> 00:22:36

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Bismillah is also protection against sin. Because it's inconceivable that you could begin something which is haram With the name of Allah. That would be blasphemy and sacrilege and not something that any Muslim, no matter how weak his faith may be, would dream of doing. So if we make it a habit to begin all our actions with bosma law, then we can be assured that inshallah that remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala will stop us from committing any sin. Then think about the meaning of this if we're saying In the name of Allah. So when we envisaging In the name of Allah, Allah Rahim meaning, the most beneficial and the Most Merciful. So when we begin In the name

00:22:36 --> 00:23:02

of Allah, we think about our connection with him jelajah, who, I remind myself knew that it takes a long time to build a connection, but it does not take long to break the connection, we can see this in our own relationships. And we know that it takes years to build trust, and to create a relationship of closeness. But it takes only one incident or one word to break that relationship. So let us ask ourselves, what is my connection with Allah Jalla

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

nobody can say with certainty, how strong close that connection is. And we will all know that only when the curtain is lifted, and when we meet Allah, but when we begin,

00:23:17 --> 00:23:36

In the name of Allah, we must reflect on this and ask ourselves, what we are doing to build that connection. And we must do our utmost to ensure that we never do anything that is likely to strain or break that connection. We begin In the name of Allah Jalla Jalla Whoa, who is Allah and

00:23:37 --> 00:24:22

I will come to the meaning of these specific attributes later, because they are mentioned again and again in the third eye. But here, let us reflect on the Baraka of beginning in the name of Allah subhanaw taala, who chose to introduce himself with these specific attributes of is, among all the other equally magnificent ones. This is to indicate the primary relationship that Allah Allah Allah has with his creatures, which is a relationship of mercy, overriding mercy and compassion. So we need to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for introducing himself with this effort with these attributes and qualities, because if we are not done that, we couldn't have made him change his words. The

00:24:22 --> 00:25:00

introduction is important. Also, because further interaction depends on how a person introduced himself. If a person introduced himself as a doctor, we won't ask him to you won't ask him to fix your car. Similarly, if a person tells you that he is a motor mechanic, you will not tell him what the pain in your heart so reflect on the importance of Allah monitor himself, who introduced himself as our ohana Rahim. It defines our relationship with him and tells us what we can expect from him. His mercy, his compassion, and his forgiveness which is complete and which is bound

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

Listen, compassion and remember Mercy is the prerequisite it is the foundation of forgiveness, because what is forgiveness? guide comes from mercy. What Why is that important because forgiveness implies that we committed a sin. Right? So when we commit a sin to punish would be justice, we are not asking for justice, we are asking for mercy. So yeah, like I was in, but I deserve the punishment, but please don't punish me. Right, forgive me. A compassion is not merely mercy, but something that arises out of a true understanding of the difficulties and pain of the one suffering them. For example, someone who's undergone heart surgery can truly understand the anxiety of the one

00:25:43 --> 00:26:27

who is waiting to be operated. For others, it's more academic, because they don't share that experience, though they may well sympathize with the patient. Now there is a special relationship between the one who is compassionate, and the one who's suffering the pain, a relationship of shared experience, who who understands our pain better than Allah subhanaw taala although he is free from our experience, but is our Creator and the creator of our experiences. So we begin the surah and the Koran and must begin all our actions With the name of Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Alhamdulillah Allah Allah me, this is the second Ayat of Surah Al Fatiha, all goodness starts with thankfulness.

00:26:27 --> 00:26:53

thankfulness creates Baraka in our lives. And Germans do not experience an appreciation for what we have. So Allah subhanaw taala taught us to begin with praise and thanking him jello, praise His for his glorious qualities and attributes, and thanks are for his blessings on us. You may have Nicosia rhodolite Allah in His tafsir regard this hadith narrated by Abdullah Omar Delano.

00:26:54 --> 00:26:59

And also it's in Nevada was, he said, a slave of Allah

00:27:00 --> 00:27:49

said a slave of Allah one said, Oh Allah, yours is the hummed that is suitable for the grace of your face and the greatness of your supreme authority. Rob Wheelock al hamdu cama amburgey, Jalali logic, Waze missale, tonic, yo Allah all praise and thanks, are yours and for you, and how much of that in keeping with the glorious magnificence of your countenance, and in keeping with the glory, glorious magnificence of your creation of your, as he whistle tonic of your rule and your supreme authority. The two angels who regard the deeds were confused as to how to what right as as the reward for these words out or write these words, they ascended to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And of course Allah knows

00:27:49 --> 00:28:29

what is happening. Allah knew what the slave was going to say even before the slave himself was aware Allah heard the slave when he said it. And Allah knows, but the angels are doing their work and Allah subhanaw taala is questioning the angels is really to establish the established evidence in favor of a slave. The two angels were confused that we shall as Adam said, as to how to write these words, they send it to us ran into and said, Oh, Rob, a slave just made a statement and we are unsure how to record it for him. Allah subhanaw taala asked, while having more knowledge about what his slave had said than them. What did my slave say? They said he said, Rob be like Al hamdu cabomba

00:28:29 --> 00:29:20

really Jalali logic was he missile tonic, or Allah Yours is the hand that is suitable for the grace of your magnificence countenance and the greatness of your supreme authority. Allah subhanaw taala says to them, and write it as my slave said it until he meets me and then I will reward him in keeping with the glory of my countenance and in keeping with the majesty of my kingdom. Imagine what kind of reward that is. Allah only knows because Allah will reward in keeping with his glory and magnificence. As for praising Allah subhanho data, Allah reminded us all lokaal baharu maida legaly Matthew Robbie, Lana Fidel baharu cobla and done father Kalima to Robbie while ojinaga Miss Lee

00:29:20 --> 00:29:41

madda Allah said, o se O Muhammad salam to mankind. If the see what ink for writing the words of my rub, surely the sea would be exhausted before the words of my Arab would be finished. Even if he brought another sea like it for its aid. I remember this is while

00:29:42 --> 00:29:59

I was in Mozambique, and we were out on the ocean deep sea fishing with my dear friend Brian by Patel. And friends in in Mozambique. mail us monetary reward them for their wonderful hospitality. We were over 100 miles

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

out in the ocean, on the,

00:30:04 --> 00:30:11

in the, in the Indian Ocean, in the Mozambique channel in the Mozambique current. And

00:30:12 --> 00:30:13

there they

00:30:15 --> 00:30:20

you know, they shut the engine of the board and we were trawling for for Marlin.

00:30:22 --> 00:31:02

And we shut the engine the board and now they're fishing. The board makes this kind of, you know, backwards and forwards and sideways simultaneous motion, which is absolutely incredibly horrible for the belly, I mean, you get very, very sick. Anyway, what struck me at that time was the play of light on the water. And we were there just one small boat in the middle of the ocean. Obviously, there were boats, you know, many boats, I'm sure around us, but we couldn't see anything. So as far as we were concerned with one small boat in the middle of the ocean, so you're sitting there in this boat, and what struck me was the color of the water. And the color of the water was the color of

00:31:02 --> 00:31:06

blue ink. And I recall my childhood we had this ink called quinque.

00:31:07 --> 00:31:18

Qu is aq INZK quinque. And I love writing with fountain pens, broad nib fountain pens, and we used to use this quinque ink.

00:31:19 --> 00:31:41

And I remember that and then I thought of this idea of Allah smart Allah. But Allah said this if this ocean was ink, and then if you wrote the prayers of Allah subhanaw taala, then this whole ocean will be exhausted. And even if you brought another one like that, there will also be exhausted, but the praise of Allah subhanaw taala will still not have been written

00:31:43 --> 00:31:45

in keeping with its with its reality.

00:31:46 --> 00:31:49

Again, even though it's these things are

00:31:51 --> 00:32:34

very easy to understand and to believe. Because if you really look at them at the just in terms of size, if you just really look at the earth, this whole Earth, it looks big to us because we are so small, but the whole earth in in astronomical terms is less than a grain of sand on a beach. Right in us in size, what is now an ocean on that Earth is what it's it's a it's a micro drop of water. It's not even one decent drop of water. So if you say that, you know the the prayers of all those vandal data cannot be written in a micro drop of water. Of course, it can be written in a micro drop of water, it leaves a lot more than that. But for us, because we are we are smaller than all that.

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

So it looks very, you know, huge and massive.

00:32:38 --> 00:32:48

So this is what Allah is giving us as an example and say, even this thing we just think is so vast and big and Swan is nothing compared to what our most valuable data is. And what he does.

00:32:50 --> 00:33:30

Evidence is there's no power in our language, any language to praise Allah subhanaw taala as is his right to be praised as He is worthy of being praised. So the best we can do is to use the words that Allah subhanaw taala himself used to describe his glory and magnificence for nobody knows Allah better than he knows himself. And nobody can describe Allah Better than he can describe himself. And how did he describe himself, we know the ayat of the Quran, just listen to them, read them, reflect on them. The key is the reflection on the art. We get stuck only in the outward manifestation i'm not i'm not

00:33:31 --> 00:33:59

devaluing or discounting the importance for example of correct pronunciation and so on all this is very important. But that is not the Quran didn't come was not sent for you to pronounce it correctly. The Quran was sent for us to reflect on it and to apply it in our lives. How can we apply something which we don't even understand? That's why it's very important to understand and not just understand as in translation, but understand as in deep insight to say what does this do to me

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

Talos rather than as ours we live and I show it on rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Allah Allah Allah, Allah who will heyoka you Hello Xena to know no lahoma is the

Allah, Allah Allah who none has a right to be worshipped. But he jelajah Lalo the EverLiving aka yo the ever living, the one who sustains now established

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

the one who sustains and protects

00:35:00 --> 00:35:04

All that exists, neither sleep, nor

00:35:06 --> 00:35:57

nor slumber, nor any form of of that, no matter how momentary, it might be, does not overtake him, To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on Earth. Who is he that can intercede with him jealous Allah who accept with His permission, he knows what happens to them, his creatures in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter, and they will never come past anything I was knowledge, except that which He wills, his kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and he feels no fatigue, in guarding and preserving whatever he created, and He is the Most High and he's the most great, Allah. Allah said in totaliser Hola, hola, de la ilaha illa huali mulloway we

00:35:57 --> 00:36:16

as well as is Rocky. I lost Rhonda said He is Allah other than home there is Lai ilaha

00:36:27 --> 00:37:17

illa who none has the right to be worshipped except he the all Knower of the unseen, the unperceivable and the perceived and the open. He is the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. He is Allah. Dan home there is La Ilaha Illa. Odin has the right we worship but he is the king, the holy the one free from all defects, the giver of security, the watch or watch over his creatures, the Almighty, the compeller the supreme Glory be to Allah subhanho wa Taala hi is he above all that they associate as partners with him? He is Allah Jalla Jalla who the creator the inventor of all things, the best store of farms, to Him belong the best names all that is in the heavens and the earth

00:37:17 --> 00:37:30

glorify him. Then he is the almighty the all wise and then of course on as Amanda said, in Zulu class, Paulo Allahu Ahad Allah who Samadhi let me lead when I'm youlet when I'm your Kula, who,

00:37:31 --> 00:37:34

as I mentioned this before, this Hadees

00:37:35 --> 00:38:21

is, is a beautiful, heavy services were inherited by a member of the Lanois who said that also lasagna Sallam said that Allah subhanaw taala says that if a person recites this surah are the last 10 times Allah will build a palace for him and Jana, if he resides is 20 times Allah will build for him two palaces and if he resides in 30 times Allah will build for him three palaces, Jana says Sarah O'Meara Katara delarue He said, You are so loved and we will do it much more and build a lot of palaces for ourselves. And Jenna also observed the treasures of my robber unlimited Allah does not get tired of giving to do as much as you want. All while now I say Obama's a Zilla, He is Allah,

00:38:21 --> 00:39:04

Allah had, he is the one say, Allahu Samad, Allah Samadhi is a self sufficient master whom all creatures need, and he does not need anything from them. Let me Allah mula, he does not beget, nor was he begotten. He did not he didn't give birth to anybody. He's got no sons and daughters and relatives and whatnot. And he has no fathers and mothers and so forth. He does not he does not beget, and now was it we got, and there is none co equal or comparable unto him while I'm your Punahou one ahead. This is the essence of tawheed. This is the absolute essence, my brother and sisters, let us reflect on who we worship. We do not worship creations of our own imagination. We

00:39:04 --> 00:39:32

don't worship celestial bodies. We don't worship animals, or trees or mountains, rivers, or anything in creation, we worship the only one who is worthy of being worshipped. And that is Allah, we worship the creator of all of these things, and all that we know and all that we don't know, by that we are exalted about all creation, and all creation has been subjugated to us, only because we worship nothing but the creator general.

00:39:33 --> 00:39:57

I remind myself when you everything begins with tanks, and therefore let us thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for what he has given us. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to be pleased with you and never to be displeased. ask Allah subhanaw taala to help you in every way to give you that what you asked for, and give you what you forgot to ask or you didn't know to ask from his own

00:39:58 --> 00:39:59

from his own generosity

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