Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Shara film ba will mousseline Mohamed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa seldom does it even Kathy Ron cathedra from abajo. My brothers and sisters, we are on the second lecture in the series on the rights of Allah subhanaw taala geladeira. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to understand his rights and to fulfill them and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive us, the shortcomings and the mistakes that will invariably be in all our actions. The rights of Allah subhanaw taala are five, believing that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah.

00:00:45--> 00:01:11

Tau is a bother to worship Allah subhanho data alone without any partners. Third is sugar which gratitude giving thanks to Allah subhanaw taala for his innumerable blessings. Number four is to have fear and hope from Allah subhanaw taala alone and number five is to love Allah subhanaw taala over and above more than anyone and anything else in this life.

00:01:13--> 00:01:43

We start with the first of them which is believing that nun has the right to be worshipped but Allah, a shadow Allah ilaha illallah wa SHODHANA Muhammad Rasul Allah, I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah subhana wa Jalla Jalla DiNardo and there are Mohamed Salah Holly who seldom is the messenger is the Rasul is the Navi is the Prophet and the last and final of them, after whom there is no other

00:01:44--> 00:02:20

but before believing in the Kalibata he said, we must know who Allah subhanaw taala is, many Muslims say that they believe in one God. Islam is not the name of worshiping one God. Islam is the is the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala Who is Allah who is ahead? He's not one He's unique. He's not worried he is ahead is unique. A summit free from all needs. Learn merely the wallum You lead while I'm Nicola who have one I had.

00:02:21--> 00:02:42

He is the One who does not beget, and he is the one who was never begotten, and there is none equal or comparable to him. To Know Allah subhanho wa Taala to reflect on his glorious names and attributes his asthma was he fat, to reflect on His bounties in our lives, to love him to fear the meeting

00:02:43--> 00:02:48

with him, while retaining hope, in his

00:02:50--> 00:03:42

infinite mercy and forgiveness are all necessary to be a true believer. Our belief in Islam is not academic or intellectual. Belief is real. It is dynamic, it is interactive, and it is passionate. We love Allah subhanaw taala we seek His protection, we seek to please Him. We try to live our lives according to his book Al Quran Al Karim, and in the way demonstrated by His Beloved Prophet and Messenger, Muhammad, Salah Holly, while he was happy was seldom, Islam is the name of our practice, which makes us Muslims. That is why there is no such thing as a non practicing Muslim. Believing in and saying the Kalamata read is the first pillar of Islam. This is the right of Allah subhanho wa

00:03:42--> 00:04:34

Taala geladeira the reward of living by that is freedom from the hellfire, narrated by the manageable Robbie allow and don't allow I know also Allah is Allah is Allah asked Omar Do you know what Allah has right upon his slave his? I said Allah and His Messenger know best Rasul Allah is Allah is Allah said to worship him, Allah subhana wa Tada alone and to join nobody in worship with him. And then he said, Yeah, Ahmad, and I said yes, he also Allah, He said, Do you know what the right upon him is? What the right of the slaves is on Allah subhanaw taala I replied Allah and His Messenger know best. Rasul Nasir Assam said the right is that they should not be punished if they do

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

this meaning if they believe and the worship only Allah subhana wa Tada without any partners and this is in Makati. It is the living beit sola sola salaam said to in this hadith as we see, that's what others have said is to worship Allah subhanaw taala alone and not to join anyone in worship with him. It's the

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

Living by it, which we sometimes lose sight of Allah subhanaw taala made this very clear that it's not belief alone, but to stay firm on this belief and to live by it which counts. Allah Subhana Allah says in surah Kahf which means how do we live in a shutdown regime in the Levina Carlu Rabban Allah whoa some must camo falak often Allah him wala Hermia has an own, a very those who say our rub is only Allah subhanho wa Taala and therefore is and thereafter is the Cabo when they stand firm and they are steadfast on this belief and they live by that belief on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grief. Fear is with regard to the past.

00:05:45--> 00:06:28

Fear with regard to the future, and grief is with regard to the past. None of this will affect them. My brother and sister, the Kalama the ABA is our brand, it is our signature, it is our standard to which we are called and we answer, it is our differentiator from every other religion and every other way of being. Tawheed is the foundation of Islam, to believe in the caliber that there is no one worthy of worship other than Allah, to be sincere in that belief, to love that belief, to have complete certainty in that belief, and to live our lives according to that belief are the requirements of the Kalama and the right of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:06:29--> 00:07:19

This will inshallah entitle us to Allah subhanho wa Taala His forgiveness and freedom from Johanna I ask Allah subhanaw taala this for all of us, that is the highest, most critical and most valuable of rewards. It is the result of remaining firm on the caliber, I remind myself I knew that we make dua for steadfastness in every raka of every Salah in Surah Fatiha in Islam. It is steadfastness and consistency that counts. That's why we say is there a serratus takim Allah guide guide us to the path of steadfastness Allah subhanaw taala legs deeds that may be small, but but which are done consistently good deeds, which may be small, but they are done consistently. Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:19--> 00:08:07

stated that to join partners with him is shirk. And is the biggest of since May Allah subhanaw taala save us from committing any kind of shark whatsoever. We've got a look man Oh Livni here you are who are your eyes oh yeah, Bunny Allah to show you could be in a circle as full moon as him. And remember when look man Ali Salam said to his son, when he was advising him or my son, do not join in worship anyone other than Allah. Do not join in worship anyone with Allah. Verily joining others in worship with Allah is a great zulum is a great wrong indeed. And finally, Allah subhanaw taala declared that if anyone dies on ship does not make though is the fart does not make Toba dies on

00:08:07--> 00:08:11

ship, believing that Allah has partners, then this person will not be forgiven.

00:08:12--> 00:09:01

Allah is around that is in the law in law, you have a feudal lie of AU Shalabi where a pharaoh modern early galima Yasha Well, my usually can be late for the thorough If man Azima. Verily, Allah subhanaw taala does not forgive that partners should be set up with Him in worship, but he forgives except that anything else to whom He pleases and whoever sets up partners with Allah and worship. He has indeed invented a tremendous sin. I will say that Korea Allah on who's reported that Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam came to us, while we were discussing the gel. Also, Rosella Salam said, Shall I not tell you about my greater fear for you than the job? And we said, Of course you also Allah Azza wa

00:09:01--> 00:09:48

sallam said, it is hidden idolatry, it is hidden schicke sheer coffee, that a man and these Eddie described it. He said, This is the man stands for prayer for Salah and beautifies his prayer when he sees another man looking at him. So his recitation the improves it or he stands more respectfully or whatever he does, to show other people that he is a pious person. And this is in Hadith services in Nevada, and also as the restaurant called this shift, share coffee and he said I fear this for you more than if you're my brother and sister thing to understand here is that though even the weakest and most ignorant Muslims will not pray to an idol, or make such that an idol, there are many who

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

get involved in this [???] have coffee in this hidden ship, or go to the graves of though they declare to be sets and ask them for favors. That is

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

Make dua to them or the ask them to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala on their behalf. I remember remind you of myself the safest way. The only guaranteed way to Jannah is to see what Rasul Allah is Allah is Allah many Sahaba did and follow that and not anything else about dua Rasulullah Salim said in a hadith and Tirmidhi and in Norma and even in Bashir and in Nebby use Allah Allah Allah He while he was Abu Salim Ba La da oh well.

00:10:34--> 00:11:01

So mokara lokala buco Medora any state you local in La de esta Girona and Nevada t. So you're the Hello Johanna muda Karim ANOVA and membership of the allow anima reported that Rasul Allah Jerusalem said, dua is worship itself. Then wrestlers reasonable reciting the idea, your rap core said, Call upon me and I will respond to you.

00:11:02--> 00:11:54

Verily those who disdain who refuse my worship will enter Hell will enter Johanna in humiliation and these are this is in a pyramid. My brothers sisters dua is worship and it is the most common way in which many people commit should they go to the graves of Zambia including Rasul Allah is our salah, or to the graves of those who they call Alia of Allah. And either ask them for favors, or ask them to make dua to Allah subhanaw taala on their behalf, to believe that someone who did not know you in his lifetime, who does not speak your language, even perhaps, and it cannot recognize you, nor understand your speech, but we'll still know who you are. And we'll make dua for you. His major

00:11:54--> 00:12:43

shirt, because that person who believe this is ascribing to a human being attributes that belong to Allah subhanaw taala alone. It is also completely illogical, and is blind superstition, which has no place in Islam. Allah subhanaw taala declared that he Jalla Jalla who is the sole creator of everything, and is solely in control of them without any partners or helpers. Allah Allah fuku Leisha in Wahoo, Allah cool Leisha, you walk in, and Allah is the Creator of all things. And he is the McHale, the trustee, the disposal of affairs, The Guardian over all things. sainthood is a Christian concept. A person is bestowed centered by the church, usually the pope at his discretion.

00:12:43--> 00:13:34

In Islam we don't have since one must be very careful about using terminology that has specific meanings in other theologies in Islam. We have Alia Allah, who are the Allah subhanaw taala told us who is only may include us among them. Allah said Allah in Alia Allah He loves often Allah him Allah whom he has an own and levena Amano wakanow yet upon Lahoma Bushra. Phil higher. Dunya Warfield Kira la Cabo de la de Colima Attila the Rika, who will follow Allah regime and sort of Juno's Allah remember that I said no doubt, the very the Olia of Allah who is actually the favorite slave of Allah. No fear shall come upon them, nor shall they grieve. They are those who are they they are

00:13:34--> 00:14:22

those who believed in Islam and Davi I live in Armando, or can we a taco, and they used to fear the displeasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala much meaning that they live their life according to the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala they had Taqwa. So the in person would Eman and Taqwa Allah said for them or Glad Tidings in the life of this word, and in the Hereafter, no change can there be in the word of Allah, this is indeed supreme success. The first thing to understand here is that though the word Alia, which is the plural of barley, which means a close friend, confidant and supporter, when it relates to Allah subhanho wa taala, we understand it to mean a favorite slave of Allah, even

00:14:22--> 00:15:00

though the word is used in the context of Allah subhanaw taala. It is used in a different meaning. And this is because there is no parity or equality between Allah Jalla DeLallo and his slave lasercomb easily shaven. Well, who was Samuel wasif. Allah said he's unlike anything in creation. He's not comparable to anything who was solid. He is incomparable La La La Jolla wala colo forehead, he is incomparable to anything in creation, and therefore, there is no quality there is no equality. There is no parity between Allah and Islam, and you cannot therefore call somebody, a friend or those of others.

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

La are a word of Allah in that sense.

00:15:03--> 00:15:11

So wali of Allah as Allah called, definitely we can say that and that is in the context of the Quran.

00:15:12--> 00:15:57

When it comes to Allah subhanho wa Taala that meaning changes in keeping with the glory and magnificence of Allah and His unique position as the Creator, the Sustainer, the master the rub, to whom everyone belongs and to whom is our return. Secondly, Allah subhanaw taala divine who is only he said that his only are those who have Imana Taqwa. So we understand from this that any Muslim who has Eman and Taqwa believes in Allah subhanaw taala. Without partners and lives his life, seeking ALLAH SubhanA wa tell us pleasure and fearing his displeasure, he's a volley of Allah Insha Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala in his infinite mercy, did not put a standard did not say somebody has to

00:15:57--> 00:16:43

feel Allah so much, or has to have stuff was so much or have even so much as long as the person is not committing ship. And as long as he is trying his best to live his life according to how Allah wants him to live his life in sha Allah, he or she is a word of Allah in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala as Allah subhana wa Tada mentioned, the Ask Allah subhanaw taala to include us, among his Alia and to enable us to lead our lives trying to please Him alone. I'm explaining this because the big mistake that some people make is to name a specific person and say that he or she was a wali of Allah. This is a very serious mistake, because that person is saying, the person who's saying that

00:16:43--> 00:16:48

is speaking about Allah subhanaw taala without knowledge, which is the mother of all sins.

00:16:50--> 00:17:25

Allah America said anyone with a mind and decoy the value of Allah, but to specify to name an individual and says so and so is a value of Allah or was the value of Allah or so and so is a big value of Allah, this other person is a bigger value than the other one. All of these are statements of ignorance. The people who are saying that have no value for this, they cannot have any value for it, because the only one who can who can give the LEL, who can confirm that statement is Allah Himself Gela general and Allah subhanaw taala is not talking to anybody anymore.

00:17:26--> 00:18:12

Nobody is receiving Viva la semana de. So therefore, let us not say something that we have no authority to say about the Gambia and Russell the prophets and messengers, Allah subhanaw taala named them so we can safely say that Mousavi said I recently served me very well is around the wireless Tao, the laser I'm sorry wireless, and so on. Were the Gambia and Rasul of Allah subhanaw taala. But about his Alia Allah subhanaw taala is in his infinite mercy made a general statement to redefine that statement and apply to a particular individual is wrong, and we have no authority to do that. The problem is that this then gives rise to the reprehensible practice of visiting graves

00:18:13--> 00:18:42

of the so called Alia to ask for favors. And also Rotherham did not do this, nor did he permit anyone else to do it. He did not tell the Sahaba that they should come to his grave and ask him for anything or to make dua for anything at his grave. The Sahaba visited the grave of a surah Salah for Salah, only ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us all the opportunity to visit the Rosa Mubarak and present our salam to Surah Surah Surah

00:18:44--> 00:19:12

Al Hamdulillah we can present our salam from wherever we are in the world and as soon as I said I'm said that Allah subhanho wa Taala will appoint an angel to carry that salaam to him. So I'm delighted we can do that anyway, but still the special baraka of being in being in almost almasi the Nevada sheriff and standing in front of the role that Mobarak and sending Salam on rasilla salsola. We ask Allah for this inshallah for anyone with any doubt about this the question of asking

00:19:13--> 00:19:53

Dr. From the navy or asking the VLA set up to make dua for them. Right and I'm saying that maybe Elisa because there is no one higher than that. If you cannot do it for Mr. Seller, then you cannot do it for anybody. The if anyone has any doubt about this. There is a beautiful story in the Sierra, which illustrate this. Were over the Satara Delano when there was a drought in Medina. He took people out from Medina to praise and others discard the salah for matar so I've read and after the Salah does the people and said when Rasul Allah is Allah Salam was among us. We used to ask him to make dua for read. Now when he is no longer among us, I asked his uncle Allah Busby Abdul Muttalib

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

Allahu to make dua for rain Allah bus or the Allahu then came forward and made dua for him. I

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

Don't need to point out that say that our Katara de la who knew where the grave or soloists and Assam was, so did everyone else present, but they did not go to the grave to ask her solos on the seller to make dua for them. They asked someone who was alive and about about who's piety and position they had a high opinion to make dua for them. The basic principle is that the dead cannot hear the living. Allah subhanaw taala zero miasto V Allah hiya well I'm what in Allah use mere Oh my Yasha wama and be Muslim in Manville a war in southern Fatima Allah speaking to Rasul Allah and Salah and Allah as Mata saying, none are not alike, are the living and the dead. Right? This is

00:20:45--> 00:21:28

taken the meaning also of believers and non believers, not alike are the living and the dead. Verily Allah makes home he will to hear, but you cannot make here those who are in their graves. This is being said to the soldiers on Salah that you cannot make the people in the grave to hear you if you speak to them. If he is being said to set this. What about your knee? Let's think about it. If a sorcerer was being told that you cannot make them here, and like and make them here, then what does it mean? What do you think when we go and talk somebody is hearing us, please I'm giving you the evidence of the Quran there is nothing higher than this. Allah's rantle also said in Surah two novel

00:21:28--> 00:22:22

in Nikola two small Botha wala to smell some muda is a well known was very, very you cannot make the dead to hear. Nor can you make the deaf to hear the call when they flee turning their backs. Right now, just like the world of the womb is different from this world. And its rules are totally different from the from these rules, rules of our present life. So also the animal bizarre, the world of the grave is different from this world with totally different rules. We lived in a sack filled with amniotic fluid, without breathing air, and getting sustenance from our mothers without her will or effort for nine months. But after we are born, after we come into this world, we cannot

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

exist even for nine minutes without it.

00:22:26--> 00:22:39

And if we want sustenance, we have to make effort for it. Similarly, the rules that govern the next world are different, and those that go on the day of judgment are different. And the rules of the

00:22:41--> 00:22:55

agenda are different from all the others. We follow water solar cell ism said and did as did his Sahaba is one of the healing was made. There is no guide better than the guide.

00:22:56--> 00:22:58

Then then then Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam

00:22:59--> 00:23:48

right chiral Harry had the Mohammed Muhammad salallahu Alaihe Salam. This best guide is the guidance of Mohamed Salah Salah to lead us to Allah and to Jana, we do not follow anyone else because the matter of Sheikh is too serious to make a mistake about finally I want to conclude with two very powerful a hadith which underline the importance of the heat monotheism in Islam. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to save us from all tests and to forgive us and accept us into His presence. He just narrated about from Buddha Delano. He said that my close friend Rasulillah Salam advised me and said do not associate anyone with ALLAH, even if you are cut into pieces and but do not neglect any form Salah

00:23:48--> 00:24:26

any prescribed prayer deliberately, for whoever neglects it deliberately no longer has the protection of Allah subhanaw taala even imagine, narrated another second Hadith narrated Jose five in Yemen. This is the confidant of a sorcerer Salah who Rasul Allah is Allah some had given the names of the Manassa into the rater who they've been Yamano the Alano that Rasulillah Salam said, Islam will wear out, as embroidery on a garment wears out, until no one will know what fasting or salah or the rights of pilgrimage and charity are.

00:24:27--> 00:24:59

The book of Allah will be taken away at night, and not one I have it will be left on the earth. And there will be some people left or men and or women who will say we saw our father, fathers we saw our fathers or we heard our father saying these words La Ilaha illa Allah so we also say that now Silla who was the friend of Jose Binyamin, he said to him, What good will saying La ilaha illa Allah do to them when they

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

Do not know what is fasting. What is prayer? What are the rights of pilgrimage and charity? He asked him three times who they follow the law no turned away from him. He repeated his question who they follow the law no turn away. He repeated his question a third time. Well, they follow the law who turned away each time. And then he turned to him on the third time and said, Oh, Silla, it will save them from Johanna. It will save them from Johanna. It will save them from Johanna

00:25:29--> 00:26:03

and this is an improviser. I ask Allah subhanaw taala Telugu to enable us to live our lives in a way that is pleasing to Him to live our lives. Totally and completely octopi and according to the Sunnah of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa Sahbihi Santa Barbara's Allah Nanfu Sana, welcome the film and then I call nominal Cassidy urban attina for dunya Hassan at our villa Cara they are some of the Okinawan that are some of the had really pity Miley he was I mean bhairahawa together What about him in a Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
