Sula Ramallah Rahim
Allah alameen wa salatu wa salam ala l mursaleen. Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah highly highly uslu seldom does leave and Catherine kathira from above my brothers and sisters in our series of classes on does he have the enough's
umbrella we have seen the reason why this is important and why we must work on it. As I mentioned to you before and I want to repeat that which is that simply attending this class does not mean that does not happen. This class at best is information
I am trying to share with you whatever I know and whatever I have learned in my life
with respect to
whether you're scared or not happens on our depends on us. It will happen if you practice what I'm trying to share here and it will happen when you practice that not unless so please don't go away with the impression that since you have completed this course whenever it completes, that you are there for now you are you are enough says is clean and it is the skier it does not we does not we don't doesn't necessarily mean that
or it doesn't mean that at all.
Now we were talking about
sort of our behalf and the statement of Aviva I'm not able Joker Abdullah who said they're sort of the Fatiha is Toba.
he said whoever appreciates Surah Fatiha and gives it its right.
Through his knowledge and contemplation upon its facts, upon the facts in it and by living his directives will realize that one cannot recite it with the true recitation of a slave unless one makes sincere is the far and tower to Allah subhana wa.
And so therefore the Surah Surah of SFR autobox Lila is Surah Fatiha.
let us spend a little bit of time thinking about this insha Allah We ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant Baraka in our reflection, thi Allah subhanho wa Taala the beauty of the Colombo follows that Allah subhanaw taala began
his column which is he garlis who the little poodle in orderliness which is the general statement, but he has a little bit okay. So
he Daya for those who have Taqwa. Now, first and foremost, let us understand the meaning of taka taka is that feeling that comes in the heart when the heart is filled with the glory and magnificence of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And where the person is concerned about the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala because he or she loves Allah subhanaw taala more than anyone or anything else. This combination of crushert and home of Allah subhanho wa Taala produces the feeling produces a sense station a situation scores tacos
and a taqwa is the
requirement for HIPAA is the prerequisite for desire. In Islam.
The beauty of the acquire is that to become a mustafi you don't necessarily have to be have to be a an alum or a habit or, or a learned person, or even a person with
you know, very basic
education you don't need. You don't need any of that. What you need is to be a person who is aware of the glory and majesty of Allah, somebody who is aware of the and who has a connection and a feeling of Allah subhanaw taala being present in his or her life and this is the statement Allah subhanaw taala Silva who America in our country, he is with you wherever you are, to feel this in our lives that my rub is with me wherever I am. This is the definition of taqwa. So obviously, when a person has that feeling, then this becomes impossible for a person to come into sin. Because when you when you feel and you know and you feel this reality that Allah subhanaw taala is with me,
Wherever I am, then obviously I cannot do something which is disobedience.
Allah subhanho wa Taala it cannot be I mean how can it happen when when I know Allah is watching me, when I know Allah is listening to me when I know Allah Subhana Allah is aware he is here with me
in terms of his, of his knowledge of Brazil, that how can I possibly do something deliberately to anger him something that I know that he dislikes, I cannot do that. It may happen out of forgetfulness where I have offline and I forget about the fact that a lot of that is with me, then what happens as soon as I become aware of that immediately, I am contrite, I am regretful, I am ashamed. And I
ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive me now, this is the the whole issue of is tougher and tougher. And of course, I lost rather than a promise to forgive anyone who seeks forgiveness. So let's take it as begins with the first first Ayat of the Quran, which is this villa Rahmani Raheem. So when the slave resides Bismillah R Rahman Rahim I begin In the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Who is Allah? Who is our man meaning
he first of all is his rumble me. So I begin Bismillah by the name of Allah Bismillah R Rahman Rahim that In the name of Allah, Who is the most merciful, Most Beneficent, the important thing is in the Arabic language, the the word of the word the Ron, Ron is on the same wasn't as, as Joanna
Anwar and these words which are superlatives, so it is the peak of something. So Joanne is the peak of hunger, or Bernie, the peak of anger at Cheyenne is the peak of thirst. Now,
therefore, man is the peak of mercy. There's nothing beyond that this is the as far as mercy can go, it's the peak of mercy. And then Rahim is on the same wasn't as Jimmy Kareem and so on, which is something which is long lasting something which which continues in the same way. And
this is again a very beautiful thing because where we will is continues in the same way. advocate for example, unless I said
no, no Hollywood coolly, foolish a wahoo Allah Cooley, San Joaquin, Allah created everything and he looks after everything. Now only what he is is the mean in the in the linguistic form, we say what colors or we say the Aqeel we use this term in order for example for the for an advocate for somebody who is representing us who's looking after us who's taking care of our problems in the court of law. So, advocate is Allah subhanaw taala who takes care of everything that he creates whatever it is, and Asha
is not to be confused only with material things which have which have mattered right. So, for example, the earth and and people and animals and birds and insects and so on are the planets and the ashia is every creative thing. So every feeling is from the Assia all the all the highlights are from a chef all conditions are from a chef they are also a form of shape which is which is things
to everything all Allah subhanaw taala who are highly Julio Shia here is the pilot and the creator of everything and every condition and the conditions are also things in that sense. Now therefore, our Rahim is on the same wasn't as as these words Jamil and Karim assaults, and the
beauty of that is that
these words they indicate an ongoing thing which remains
at that same level right at the same level now.
the Wrath of Allah subhanaw taala, in Rama is at the peak and in our Rahim that Rama is that P continues. Now this is an important thing to understand the differentiation because the thing about any peak is that there is a decline once something is at the tops that it has to come down. So for example, if you are Joanne, you are hugely hungry maximum hangups, the minute you eat one piece of bread or one biscuit or whatever it is one thing if there was a meter to measure the, the level of hunger, that meter would indicate that it came down by one degree, five degrees, whatever it was right.
It cannot remain at the same level because once you eat
Then that hunger will be affected, but with the Ramadan of Allah subhanho wa Taala that is not the case the peak remains forever and a hamdulillah that's what Allah has done as Rama. We asked him for it always. So yeah, in those of Allah
begins with that. Now imagine when the slave was deciding this with understanding that's how we should do it. Reset with decide with understanding and with reflecting on it. And I'm saying to myself are hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen all praise I before that, so Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, I begin In the name of Allah Jalla Jalla Lu, who is our Hannah heaps. So what must I do as a slave I shall serve Allah, Allah subhanaw taala that I ran over him, but what am I doing in my life to access this Mercy of Allah, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive us and to have mercy on us no matter what we do or don't do but as a as a matter of our own integrity, you know, there should be
some thing that we do in order to,
to get this mercy to benefit from this mercy. So we say Allah, please help us. And let us be
among those who you
who you have mercy upon. This the state of is different doba May Allah
grant the highest diraja to
such a beautiful reminder, the state of this Toba starts from the beginning, also the fattest, then we go to Al hamdu, lillahi Rabbil aalameen, all praise and all thanks to Allah subhanaw taala who is the Sustainer the Creator, the the maintainer, the the protector, of element of everything that he has created of the of the world right. Now unfortunately, there's word rubbish translated as God. Now again, there's no problem with translation into English, because the Lord is what a lot is somebody who has some some temporal authority over that spirit, that nothing more than that.
But Allah subhanaw taala, as his as his room, albeit, Allah subhanho wa Taala the authority permeates every cell of the body, right, the, what happens is that the body, which is completely involuntary, we have no control over that, and Alhamdulillah that we have no control over that, for example, if, if we had control over our hearts, that the heart will beat, as long as I am, you know, as long as, as long as I can make it bit what will happen to the heart, the moment you go to sleep will be dead, because art will stop. But Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala has kept all these internal functions of our body, the circulatory system, the digestive system, the and so on and so
forth, the brain cells that everything continues to function even when we are in deep sleep and we are completely and totally unaware of our circle of our circumstances, surroundings, of ourselves, all these functions continue and we remain alive and our body remains healthy.
So this is a lot of our data. So now, when the person is reflecting on this I'm talking about the control of Allah control is on every cell of our body, unless control in the external world or loss or habitat is control is that everything in the external world Allah Subhana Allah has control is paralleled by magical monkey to till one common Tasha. lattanzio Moon coming man, Tasha, what do I do montage I will do montage where the girls are in the gala. poolish Allah subhanaw taala said, say that Allah, Myra, my gelada Allah, my Allah, my Allah
Allahu mmamoloko mo he is the owner of everything is the order of the countries is the order of the world is your own the entire universe. And then he gives authority to who he wants, and he takes it away from whoever he wants, he gives the monkey gives power and he gives a horrible man he gives governments and he gives rule to who he wants, and he takes it away from who you want to give his
prestige and dignity to whoever he wants. And he takes it away from whoever he wants. And he gives, you know, he changes that is to Zilla to disgrace, and drag nominees and do a you know, a miserable kind of image. And then he he can do that. And he does that while the person remains in the seat of temporal powers, right? We have enough examples of this happening in our own lifetimes in this world, where we have seen people who are the heads of some of the most powerful countries in the world, who haven't who's a who are at least in name, you know, commander in chief of some of the most powerful armies in the world, but the world laughed at them. The world literally spat in their
faces for what they did. And they were the they were the most they became the laughingstock of the world, right. There's not a single person who has any as of any respect for them in their hearts, no matter even though they
Sitting in those positions of power, it makes no difference. This is Allah subhanaw taala.
So as I say, this is the extent of his control, I don't say this is the level of his control because I cannot understand the level of his control. But this is the extent of his control to which I which I can understand. Now, Allah tell us is always a saying all tanks beat Allah, Who is the robber This is all of this is part of our movie. The movie is actually the ability or the or the situation where a large amount of data take something from a state of
say we're not it's arbitrary state of something which is incomplete which is small, to a state of command. that lets you ask Allah, Allah Allah created us from a drop which was impure, right, the drop which was impure, and we ask Allah Allah take us and You created us in this shape azwan so obviously Allah Kemal of this is to have genital for those who have when we meet you, so this is your movie so please show us your movie in our lives by forgiving us and giving us genital for those and the company of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam inshallah, because this is the shine of Allah subhanho wa Taala that I can see this fellow sitting here in this generative results at the feet of
mine Abbey or a Salah came from one drop
which when it was injected, both his parents went and met also, Brian
Karthik is back after
after egg as a racer by that wag a joke he just gave
think about this.
So Allah so this is when we are saying $100 Bill alaminos live is things all praise all thanks and then immediately what does he do this live things that he says he Allah The you gave me all of this right you gave me all of this
am I thankful to you? I'm saying this $100 bill out of me all thanks and all and all praise to Allah what really am I thankful
I will do that you gave me is you gave me the love of people who gave me position. You gave me authority. You gave me influence. You gave me a body which works. You gave me food you gave me shelter, right? You rewarded me and you gave me much more than I need. Much, much more than I need. You gave me a beautiful family. You gave me beautiful friends. I mean, I used it there is there is no end to this but I'm saying that am I thankful This is what the slave is doing.
He's thinking it's Mr. taboo, and you say no, not thankful so he makes them and instead what is Allah Allah please, Allah Please forgive me, that I am ungrateful Do I have, I am not consciously I am not deliberately ungrateful, but I am ungrateful by and my being. My lack of consciousness is is in gratitude in a way and if you do not forgive me, then I will perish to your love for you.
I mentioned our hunger game already, so I won't repeat. But again the person is thinking here is this Rama philos marathon. Just think about it. Allah subhanho wa Taala introduced himself as urahara him in these three I had a la serata introduce himself twice, he said this, he repeated this two times. If Allah Subhana Allah had the Allah had and has the freedom to introduce himself in any way he likes, right? Now imagine the year is a person who's who's standing there and reading, reciting so the body and salah and this person say for example, is somebody who's really connected to Allah subhanaw taala is not as pure and this person is reading reciting souls in Pattaya with
complete his desire and understanding and into the VEDA, instead of our handle he, if Allah subhanaw, taala, had introduced himself by saying alcohol was a bad omen, disease, if a lot of our data had used these attributes, and these qualities of is where he says he's the, he's the he's the overpower, he is the you use the supremely powerful, he is the one who will extract retribution. He is the one who has our hood, who is you know, I mean, I have difficulty translating these things into into into English, but who, who can destroy organ, move and move and give other? Right? If Allah had introduced himself in these terms? What would happen to that person who's who's reading
so? Is it what am I this is Allah Subhan Allah.
Allah, Allah did mention himself in in this way. When I was one of the lesser liberal will call yo dilla Hill who I will call her is a who is the king today on this day on this day of judgment.
And his day of judgment is with Allah subhanaw taala who is our his or her? Now what is the fattier Allah subhanaw taala again
binded so when the slave is writing this, again is making some foreign Toba and saying your lovelies, please forgive me for whatever I have done Please forgive me for whatever I'm not done because not doing means often. So please forgive me for that. And your mercy. You promised me this mercy. You mentioned his mercy, Allah, please show this was my life. Please do this one.
Right. And then what does he see? My Chioma did. Alex Rodriguez reminding us on the day of just allays Malik. Everywhere we ally, Allah Ratan. I mentioned as I mentioned, the idea of the idea of sort of the lallybroch right? where Allah subhanaw taala said who he is medical monks, so he Allah subhanaw taala is the Malik anyway. But Allah is reminding us that on the day of jasmine, today in this world, even though Allah Subhana Allah is the Malik He is the one who is the real king, he is the owner. Despite that there are people who have been given authority so they pretend to have to be to have authority or I'm the president of this country. I'm the king of that country's all very well
very nice. But on the Day of Judgment, there are no presidents and kings there are no prime ministers and Queens. There is nobody with any authority the only one who is the Malakal. mulk is Allah Subhana hotel on the day of judgment? He is my lucky oh we did. He's the demonic, he is the owner. He is the Malik He is the king of the Day of Judgment.
Now connect these two
before Maliki ordain Allah, Allah Hungary
so what is the message is the message here is for the slave to say by slave, you will come before me on the Day of Judgment but don't worry
why I am
and the most beautiful servant who's better was mercy and was benefited does not decrease.
So as long as you have worshipped me and you have not drawn partners with me and you have not denied me you have not said that you know you are not an atheist and you have not drawn partners with me You are not a polytheist as long as you are adored and as long as you have worshipped me without all this, then remember I am the most forgiving and the Most Merciful.
So this is the Sadly this is something which is a
which is a comfort to the heart of the belief
and then a lot of damage. Angela Danilo,
says Eoghan I would
like to teach you guys how to move
a lot what does this say this Allah only you will versus
and only you will seek help from
so what is happening here here this live is establishing his connection with Allah.
He's reiterating the connection he's invoking that connection the Allah I'm yours, y'all I'm yours. Y'all I don't belong to anybody else I belong to you. Y'all I never joined anyone in pa as a partner to you because I know that you have no partners. Yella I worship only you. Yell I don't ask help from anybody because La hawla wala quwata illa Allah they have nothing they cannot help me the everybody's a beggar. I'm a beggar Yella we all in our in your Darbar we are all in your court begging for your mercy and your wrist.
So what does he do again? He's making dough and it's their fault. And it seems whatever I'm saying Yeah. But my heart is filled with s&m My heart is filled with idols
the idle which is a government the idle which is the sharp dial, which is the garbage in my company, where I work, the idle, which is this one is that one and I because I will because I think that because of them, I will be benefited or I will be harmed?
Let me monitor my conversation. What do I say? Oh, well, you know what you saw and so when the election, what will happen? What will happen?
You think if you think that your fate and your
benefit or or or harm is linked to whichever political party comes to power or whichever politician is sitting in which seat and so on, then this should go on.
Because we are saying that Allah subhanaw taala is the one law. The law, there's no benefit and there's no harm at all. And I'm worried about the government. I'm worried about COVID what will happen if I get COVID what will happen if you get COVID the chances are 99% of the time you will be fined
1.1% you might die but you might die anyway. You will die anyway. The only certain thing in life is that you will die.
Whether you die up because of COVID or you will die because of cancer you will die because you will just your heart stops one day
Before because you walk into a wall or because a mosquito bite you I mean there is an endless list of ways in which you can die.
And if you are running from that, believe me there is nowhere to go.
There is nowhere to go.
Allah said even if you are sitting in Buju Moshe, if you're sitting in use fortresses, molecular model binding, there's no place to go. What should we be really concerned about? What is the matter of my going Am I going with the model without you man?
Am I going as a boy hedorah Boucher.
Am I going as a mutawa kill or as somebody who has had our call on somebody else instead of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is what we should be concerned about not COVID and this and that. By all means take precautions by all means take medicines, by all means, do what you need to do.
But living your whole life, looking at COVID data, driving yourself nuts and everybody else not I mean this is what is this?
Is this our This is our a believer a believer moment should be it should be a one and think
this is what this is what sold the SDGs.
Maliki already think about that the day when I'm going to stand for Allah subhanaw taala I will stand before Allah Serrano, there is no doubt about this. Whether I like to believe or don't believe this is going to happen. Let me think about that. When I stand before Allah subhanaw taala the question I will not be asked did you die of COVID or cancer? The question I will be asked is did you watch it but now it's something else?
What are you?
So let us think about it. Right?
Medicare again, instead of foreign tober
here Can I stay for Lyme yours? All I asked help only from you. And then what is the what did Allah teach us was in a certain way Allah guide us to the path of steadfastness.
Why steadfastness because the path will have
other forces, alternative forces. We will be buffeted. We will be shaken.
But we asking for steadfastly, Allah keep me from Let there be a stop. But it keeps me from brought Ravi to sync.
Either as Robin was talking. So again, it's different. Because the beginning of the Serato mystery where do I start from? Start from our start from step two, when the slave is walking on this path? He's constantly seeking is the remaking means making stuff are you making doba and is constantly seeking the help of Allah subhanaw taala help me all I have.
And then further reiteration of that which another mystery. Siddhartha Lavina and I'm tally very well, we are involved only one other part of those who missed the part of those who got your ynab
Who are those people? A lot of our data What did you say? Oh my god, Allah Rasulo.
The one who obeys Allah and His name is Allah Salah
what will happen to him, he will be with the
Anima holliman. And I've been I was in the shows I was Ali Hassan Allah,
He will be she will be with the nabin with the MBR with the CD or with the, with the Shahada.
And these are some beautiful components.
And in those Nubian
what did Allah say about it? He said
yacine alcara Quran likey in nikolina masuri.
yacine is one of the neighborhoods of Salah algebra that I called him by his name and he said,
by the Hauraki, alleged again or by his color analysis by the haoran, you are among the mousseline, you are under assault, you are among the messengers.
And you are answered. So when I'm making this vlog as the Father I'm saying,
I'm asking for the path of Muhammad Salallahu alaihe salam throughout the lesson and I'm telling him Well, well, well, Mr. Dahlin, Oh Allah, The path of those meeting as soon as as element not the path of those who went astray or Uber misguided and incurred your anger.
So once again, the person is making Toba and saying you're looking at his life. And he's saying now if I if I if I make this da, and then I look at my life, what signs do I see in my life? Are there signs of the sooner or soon as a seller? Or are there signs of the people who are
away from the sun? People who are either outright enemies of Islam or even if they're not enemies of Islam, there are people who are in love like they are in you know, following their the slaves of their of their knifes slaves of their desires.
missguided doing all kinds of stuff.
When we say hamster what is haram? SAP is something which is intrinsically harmful, that people are doing that.
And they have no problem doing that. They're very happy doing that.
We are saying Allah, we don't want to be part of that. So when if I look at my life, what signs do I see in life in my life? When I look at my conversation, what signs do I see in that when I look at my attitudes, what signs do I see? When I look at my force? I live my my things which are important to me. What do I see in that?
Do I see signs of people
who are focused on Allah subhanho? wa Taala? Do I see signs of this in the hole?
That decided, hey, do I see signs of people like that? Or do I see signs of people who are
people who are foster home,
again, you mixed so this whole surah as if our
circle fathia if it is resided with the duhok, which is what is due to it, which is meaning we decided with understanding and with reflection with focus, drive, every single iota of it is an iron seeking power seeking Allah subhanaw taala is making stuff out on us we're seeking the forgiveness of Allah.
I want to end with that here, that is reflect on this, when you now stand in salah and you decide so the path
let us try to focus on that and think about that and say, how does this help me in my desk here?
Because as I told you, right in the beginning, it begins with Mr. Fogg. It begins with accepting the need to change. If I do not accept and accept the need to change, I will not change.
So it begins with the with accepting the need to change. So let us start with that. And we ask a lot of anatella to help us in this journey. sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi
wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
