topic of the attributes and the names of Allah azza wa jal

00:01:19--> 00:01:20

asking Allah azza wa jal

00:01:30--> 00:01:32

and today are tonight's

00:01:33--> 00:01:36

name is extremely important.

00:01:38--> 00:01:42

Just like every other name, but today we can

00:01:45--> 00:01:46

feel and live this name

00:01:48--> 00:01:49


00:01:52--> 00:01:53


00:01:54--> 00:01:57

tonight's name is Al Hakim

00:01:59--> 00:02:01

al Rocky, Rocky.

00:02:03--> 00:02:05

Rocky means

00:02:06--> 00:02:10

the old watchful the old observing

00:02:11--> 00:02:19

the old watch from and the old observing and it came from the three letter root raw cough death

00:02:21--> 00:02:25

and the name itself or rocky or rocky the

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

it's only mentioned in the Quran three times.

00:02:30--> 00:02:33

But there are many

00:02:36--> 00:02:39

words that are derived from this route

00:02:41--> 00:02:47

that are mentioned a lot in the Quran, especially, which word raka

00:02:49--> 00:02:49


00:02:51--> 00:02:52

Raka means neck.

00:02:54--> 00:03:05

Because one of the meanings of the word Raka is to extend to erect you have to extend you know, to see and observe what's happening. That's why it's called raka

00:03:07--> 00:03:17

maraca you know when they say that the watching tower in a jail or another it's called Burj Al maraca is the tower where they are watching everything.

00:03:19--> 00:03:25

So Allah subhanaw taala is a rocky he's the one who is all

00:03:26--> 00:03:32

watchful all the time, everywhere, every creation anywhere.

00:03:34--> 00:03:38

And the three times that mentioned the Quran, one of them is

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

on the verse that we recite every Friday.

00:03:43--> 00:03:45

The first verse in Surah,

00:03:47--> 00:04:00

An Nisa, which end in the MaHA Kana Alikum. Akiva in Allaha. Can I let you come rock Eva, Allah is all watchful over you.

00:04:02--> 00:04:03

It's mentioned again

00:04:05--> 00:04:36

when isa Allah His Salam Jesus, when He said, I only told them Merkel to Nahum Amar attorney Bay and Allah Herat be calm Welcome to Allah you him Shahidan dome to fie him phenom our faith any content or rocky that Allah you him one Tada Cooley che in Shaheed I only told them Hey, sorry, Santa's stirring Allah. I only told them what you commanded me that you shall worship Allah alone.

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

My Lord and your Lord and I was a witness over them while I was among them. But when you took me to yourself, you became the watcher over them you are the witness over everything. And the third time is in surah zap what can Allah who Allah Cooley che in Rocky Allah and Allah subhanaw taala is watchful over everything

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


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

you know,

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

Allah subhanaw taala is not only watching our actions, but Allah subhanho wa Taala he knows about our feelings. And Allah subhanaw taala knows about our thoughts.

00:05:20--> 00:05:24

Of course, we will not be accountable until we act upon them, but Allah knows about them.

00:05:26--> 00:05:28

Whatever you're thinking right now Allah knows about it.

00:05:29--> 00:05:30


00:05:32--> 00:05:35

living with this name, living that name in our life

00:05:37--> 00:05:43

will make us from the people first, to make you feel very safe and secure.

00:05:45--> 00:05:47

When you know that

00:05:49--> 00:05:55

such power is always with you watching you. You feel secure.

00:05:56--> 00:06:03

When you wake up in the morning, he's watching you, when you are preparing for your exams, he's watching you, when you are working, he's watching you.

00:06:05--> 00:06:09

When you are alone, He's watching you, when you're in a crowd, he's watching you.

00:06:11--> 00:06:22

Second, it pushes you to perfect the actions that you are doing. You know, when I see my boss watching me, my work changes.

00:06:24--> 00:06:33

There was a factory one time they were working. And you know, when people are working, they chat a little bit, they joke a little bit.

00:06:35--> 00:06:43

So, one time the boss came to the factory and started watching for 10 minutes when they saw him everybody

00:06:44--> 00:06:45


00:06:46--> 00:06:54

energy you name it, perfection. So he stayed for 10 minutes watching and after the 10 minutes

00:06:57--> 00:06:59

he went to his manager and he said

00:07:01--> 00:07:08

according to what I have seen, if they can produce this much in 10 minutes that means I should have this much per day

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

I should have this much per day so that

00:07:16--> 00:07:18

10 minutes watching made them

00:07:20--> 00:07:24

work harder and provide what they will paid for.

00:07:26--> 00:08:03

How about the own watching himself as watching me not for 10 minutes. 24 hour surveillance? None. If you put a camera like if you this camera that's taping me right now. It only covers me. It has no clue what's happening in the hallway. It's not no clue what happening on the sister side anywhere. Except only me. That's all you see. But Allah subhanho wa Taala is can watch what's happening here. What's happening under the ocean, inside the forest, on Mars, in everywhere, everywhere at the same time.

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

At the same time, you know,

00:08:10--> 00:08:16

the very famous story I wouldn't, I would I would repeat it because it's perfect for this topic. When Omar

00:08:17--> 00:08:19

the second Khalifa

00:08:21--> 00:08:39

he used to be so concerned about his people is that we all know that he used to tour the Medina at night to make sure everything is okay. Everybody is okay. SubhanAllah. So, one time while he was doing that tool, he was targeted. So he leaned

00:08:40--> 00:08:44

on a wall. And while he was leaning on that hole he heard

00:08:46--> 00:08:52

a conversation taking place between a mother and her daughter. The mother was telling the daughter

00:08:53--> 00:09:09

as she as the mother is stirring the milk, she sells milk. She tells the daughter and Norma is listening, they cannot see him. She tells the daughter Why don't you dilute this milk with more water so you can make more money.

00:09:11--> 00:09:12

When you add some water to it,

00:09:14--> 00:09:20

it will increase and not too many people will notice and this way we sell more milk and make more money.

00:09:21--> 00:09:27

So what did the doctor say? Didn't you hear that Amara, our Khalifa

00:09:28--> 00:09:30

said and prohibited

00:09:31--> 00:09:34

every anyone to do something like this?

00:09:35--> 00:09:43

Didn't you hear that the Khalifa has prohibited such actions. Omar has prohibited this action. So the mother said

00:09:45--> 00:09:48

where is Omar right now? And Omar is listening.

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

So the weather is normal right now nobody's seeing us. So the daughter said even though Omar is not here, but Trump bomber is here. Even though

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

But he's not watching us, but the Lord of armour is watching us.

00:10:07--> 00:10:21

And Ahmed was so impressed by her manners that he asked one of his sons, he said, I have a, you know, a very good way for you, a person who could act like this in secret.

00:10:22--> 00:10:38

You should not let them go anywhere. And long story that she was married to one of his sons, and one of their products was Ahmad bin Abdulaziz Subhanallah, the old famous, the greatest Khalifa disease. So

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

having maraca constant

00:10:44--> 00:10:45


00:10:47--> 00:11:01

that Allah is watching me, we change everything. Sometimes if you know that there's a group in the masjid has cameras on top of you and are watching you 24 hours, there are so many things that you will not do.

00:11:02--> 00:11:14

Many things that you will not do out of fear, out of shyness, out of embarrassment that people might see me. But how can I do these things in front of Allah azza wa jal and I don't care.

00:11:16--> 00:11:19

I do Kalash major sins.

00:11:21--> 00:11:26

When I know that Allah is watching me, when the husband know that Allah is Iraqi,

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

he will treat his wife with respect.

00:11:32--> 00:12:12

when the wife knows that Allah is the Rakeem she will treat her husband with respect all the time, not in front of people only when the employee knows that Allah is that, okay? He will not spend all his time on the phone and talking things that he did not he's not getting paid for them. He's getting paid to do certain things. And this is something that we fall, many of us fall into Jaquan he's paid for the job to do this, this and that. And while they are in the job, they are doing private emails private this private that if the person allowed you 100 in love if the boss allowed you to do that Bismillah but if there was restrictions, that you are being paid to do this, this

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

this and that, only you're not allowed to do any of this. That means you're cheating and you're forgetting even though the boss is not watching you. The real boss is watching. The King of Kings is watching.

00:12:26--> 00:12:33

If everyone thought about the Rockies, can you imagine when you are now the holidays are coming when you are alone.

00:12:34--> 00:12:47

My young brothers and young sisters you will be alone at home at some times and you thinking and my parents are not here let me go on the computer and type few things. Thinking that nobody's watching me. But remember that Rocky was watching.

00:12:49--> 00:12:55

Remember this area and Amelia and MB and Allah Yara Don't you know that Allah is watching?

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

Imagine I live that all the time.

00:13:01--> 00:13:09

How would my job be perfect? Because even though the bus is not here, but I I have to report to Allah at the end of the day, he's going to question me.

00:13:11--> 00:13:14

How would your Salaat How would your prayer be?

00:13:16--> 00:13:23

If you are praying with the rock? Keep in mind? How would that solid be? Would it be quick?

00:13:26--> 00:13:32

And thoughts of everything coming to your mind? Or would it be like Rocky was watching me

00:13:34--> 00:13:36

Subhanallah when someone you know that

00:13:38--> 00:13:41

there was a book about you know, jokes that

00:13:42--> 00:13:57

you know, that actually took place. So the man, the chef mentioned in the book that the man was praying very beautifully, very nice. Everything slow, record slow and everything. So a man next to him looked at him and said, man

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

look at that.

00:14:03--> 00:14:08

Look at that. So shoot. So the man while he's praying, I'm fasting too.

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

So if a person is watching us, we perfect our prayer. How about when Allah is watching us constantly. When you get up in the middle of the night to make those to rock out of TM when everyone's sleeping at home remember that our Rocky was watching it Wallahi that solid will be so beautiful. I remember one of the I forgot who it was. I think it was when a man came to him and told him yeah, in every in my every night. I finished the whole team.

00:14:44--> 00:14:56

So, you know a very wise man. So he noticed that if you finish it the whole night and that means you're going extremely fast and you're not concentrating and you know, so he told him you know what?

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

Tomorrow when you pray to Him

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

I pray as if I'm watching you.

00:15:03--> 00:15:08

So the next day he came and he said, How much did you read this? He said Allah in five years.

00:15:10--> 00:15:14

So the next day he said tomorrow, imagine that Rasulillah Salam is watching you.

00:15:15--> 00:15:19

So the next day he came, how much did you read? He said, Allah hardly finished

00:15:20--> 00:15:27

the whole night. Then he came to the point is tomorrow, you're going to pray. Allah is watching him.

00:15:29--> 00:15:31

He came the next day said yesterday Hola. How do you finish the fat? Yeah.

00:15:33--> 00:15:35

I hardly finished the fat. Yeah.

00:15:36--> 00:16:14

Yeah. When when I when I live when I'm making dua. And I remember that a kid that he is not only a semi and obviously he sees me. I'm making the supplication. And he is hearing me. But also he's watching me. He's watching me, as I'm making the dog. So how's that coming? Is it coming from a full strong heart or coming just lip service? Remember what this is very strong name. Very strong name. Like I mentioned the beginning. We can live with that 24/7 All day long in in our relationship with our families and our relationships with our business and our relationship with our neighbors. Will everybody Rocky?

00:16:17--> 00:16:23

Another story with Amara it wasn't attributed to Omar, but I don't know how true is that. But the story is

00:16:25--> 00:16:29

let's say it was Omar or it was his son. So I was

00:16:30--> 00:16:31

walking and he saw

00:16:33--> 00:16:37

in the mountains and then with his Enya shepherd

00:16:39--> 00:16:43

with his sheep and flock and goat.

00:16:44--> 00:16:46

So I'm gonna ask him

00:16:48--> 00:16:49

who are these four?

00:16:51--> 00:16:53

He said, These are for my master.

00:16:54--> 00:16:58

I am just a worker. I only take care of them.

00:16:59--> 00:17:04

He said, Why don't you sell me one here? They can't My master is not here.

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

He said why don't you sell me on? I'm arresting him. said why don't you sell me one and tell your master? The wolf ate it.

00:17:18--> 00:17:24

You know, wolves are very well known that they could eat us put the money in your pocket and the wolf ate it.

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

The man said, Amen. Allah.

00:17:31--> 00:17:32

Even law

00:17:35--> 00:17:38

My master is not here. But what is Allah?

00:17:40--> 00:17:57

So Omer cried when he heard that. And he went to his master, both the slave and freed him. He said, Because of that attribute that you have, I asked Allah just like I feed you in this dunya to free you from the Hellfire in the akhira.

00:18:00--> 00:18:02

So yeah, when this name is really,

00:18:04--> 00:18:05


00:18:06--> 00:18:14

If we live it, our life would completely change our A Baghdad will completely change, our transactions will completely change.

00:18:15--> 00:18:26

I don't care if the Imam is watching me. I don't care if your stance is watching me. My salad has to be perfect because I'm standing in front of my creator. I'm standing in front of the one who gave me everything.

00:18:29--> 00:18:31

Who's watching me and watching my brother in China praying?

00:18:33--> 00:18:55

Who's watching me and watching my sister in Indonesia praying at the same time. Subhanallah so remember Brasilia Rahim? Allah He said about this name? He said, He is the one who knows and protects for whoever cares for something to the point of never forgetting it, and observes it with a constant and persistent gaze.

00:18:57--> 00:18:58

You know,

00:18:59--> 00:19:02

sometimes we send the message to someone.

00:19:04--> 00:19:17

Especially on WhatsApp, you have that feature that tells you on the side you swipe to the left tells you seen by five people seen by seven people seen by so and so? Well,

00:19:18--> 00:19:20

what's here is seen by him.

00:19:22--> 00:19:23

We want to use solid.

00:19:25--> 00:19:37

We have to worry what are because we could fake in front of each other. What you see from Bashar is a 15 minutes lecture, but what about the other stuff? It's between him and Allah azza wa jal

00:19:38--> 00:19:47

when you come to the masjid and you say you see those stairs or the Imam Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Keep ahead. Okay. I shake

00:19:48--> 00:19:53

is this the way you when you go to school to public school? Is this the way you speak to your Muslim brothers?

00:19:55--> 00:19:56

Or what's up bro?

00:19:57--> 00:19:57

It's gonna

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

kill everything.

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

Changes No. So, a Muslim is a Muslim, whatever he is

00:20:06--> 00:20:06


00:20:09--> 00:20:13

Allah said in the Quran yeah and then Maha in a young woman toffee sudo

00:20:15--> 00:20:27

Allah knows what if you translate it literally it means the betrayal of the eyes and what the chest or what the hearts are concealing. Allah knows about it. So even Abdus

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

or the Alon,

00:20:30--> 00:20:38

the most knowledgeable person about the Quran after Salah Salem, he said, what this area means is that a person

00:20:39--> 00:20:40

saw a female

00:20:41--> 00:20:48

staring at a female and when her father or her brother or her husband looked at him, he turned his face

00:20:50--> 00:20:55

and if they left or they turn their faces away, he look again.

00:20:57--> 00:21:03

He said this is what this means. That even though you are worried about the father or the husband or this and that

00:21:05--> 00:21:09

but Allah subhanaw taala knows what was your intention from the first place.

00:21:11--> 00:21:14

So Allah subhanho wa Taala is the all

00:21:16--> 00:21:28

the old watching you know even us on a daily basis yeah when when you're driving, and you see on the signal and the red red light it says there's a camera

00:21:30--> 00:21:38

you think 100 times before crossing the red light or making you know any wrong movement because there's a camera

00:21:39--> 00:21:42

or you know, under under some apps that tells you that there's a police ahead.

00:21:44--> 00:21:46

You slow down because you're worried

00:21:48--> 00:21:50

that the police a human being just like you

00:21:51--> 00:22:03

might see you and you're worried of a human beings punishment and to sin and drink alcohol and small can cheat and why while Allah is watching you does not mean anything.

00:22:06--> 00:22:10

And a human being a human being that you could get out of it with $100

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

I worry so much. But there will come a day where I have to be very careful. That's why we have these kinds of classes because we have to worry about the day that I cannot hide anything young

00:22:25--> 00:22:28

on young woman

00:22:31--> 00:22:38

on Loretta Newcomb, Coffea Allahu Akbar, on that day

00:22:40--> 00:22:52

everything will be displayed everything this class will be displayed with everyone in it. Letter firming comm half year nothing you will need to bless her or

00:22:54--> 00:23:00

when every secret that you hit will be exposed on that day. We cannot hide

00:23:02--> 00:23:16

so even though yeah one sometimes on many of many times during the day, there is no one personally watching over you but remember that Allah is watching. So I want you to leave with this in sha Allah to Allah

00:23:20--> 00:23:24

one of the main reasons people go to hell is the thunk

00:23:26--> 00:23:30

because of the line because of the cheating because of the backbiting because of the slandering

00:23:33--> 00:23:40

please, every time you want to utter something you want to say something. Remember Rocky?

00:23:41--> 00:23:43

Remember a rockin

00:23:44--> 00:23:47

man yellowfin Nyan

00:23:48--> 00:23:54

Colin Illa Illa de Hiraki even naughty.

00:23:55--> 00:24:02

No word you say except it's recorded. No action we do except it's recorded.

00:24:03--> 00:24:07

Think before you speak. Think before you send the text.

00:24:08--> 00:24:10

Because texting is the same.

00:24:12--> 00:24:17

Let me ask you a question. If every word we say

00:24:20--> 00:24:21

will cost you $10

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

Would you count your words?
