hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

wa ala in

00:00:19--> 00:01:08

Washington shadow Allah Illa Allah Allahu la sharika what a shadow Ana Mohammed Abu rasuluh I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship besides Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad peace be upon him is his final messenger. My beloved brothers and sisters, the first thing we remind each other about is developing a better relationship with Allah, the correct relationship with Allah, worshiping Allah alone, making sure that we don't associate partners with him, making sure that we follow the footsteps of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, and making sure that we do better as the days pass and we don't take steps back. So my brothers and sisters, we must realize that Allah

00:01:08--> 00:01:17

subhanho wa Taala has given us the blessing of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being our messenger, la cada man

00:01:19--> 00:01:21

meaning

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

him Rasulullah

00:01:26--> 00:02:15

forcing him Indeed Allah has favored the believers, by sending to them all when he sent to them, a messenger from among them, to remind them to purify them, to read to them, the verses of Allah, the revelation and so on. favor of Allah. So consider yourself favored when you know that Allah sent to you from among Jews from among you, a messenger Subhan Allah to remind you, and take the reminder seriously, no matter what happens, that reminder is valid right up to the end of time. And we will need it in order to enter Paradise May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us forgiveness. One of the beautiful things that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us is supplication how to

00:02:15--> 00:02:57

supplicate How to Make dua, how to call out to Allah for our needs. So remembrance of Allah is one thing, when you recite the Quran, that is the remembrance of Allah, when you engage in what's known as Vic, repeating the names of Allah, the qualities of Allah praising Allah, that is all victory. It is the remembrance of Allah. Similarly, if you were to commit a sin and you remembered Allah and abstained from it, that is the remembrance of Allah or if you wanted to fulfill a good deed, you remembered Allah and you fulfilled it, that is also the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when we say remembrance of Allah, it includes a lot of things but when we say do our supplication,

00:02:57--> 00:03:42

it is a type of remembrance of Allah but in it there is more of the calling out to Allah for our needs. And Allah loves it when we call out to Him. Malema Yes, Allah Hi, Baba, Allah He the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, Whoever doesn't call out to Allah doesn't supplicate doesn't ask Allah for his or her needs. Allah is upset with that person. ask Allah Allah wants you to worship Him, acknowledge that he is the greatest. So the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him called out to Allah using so many beautiful supplications you know, I have a series known as supplications from Revelation, but we did not cover every single supplication because obviously there are so many but

00:03:42--> 00:03:54

today I wish to share with you a hadith of Ennis of the Allahu Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us quite clearly, and he was speaking to one of his family members telling them that you know what?

00:03:56--> 00:04:11

Why don't you listen to what I have to say or would you like to listen? You wouldn't lose anything if you listened to what I said somehow Allah so he gave a small introduction he said every morning and evening, call out to Allah using the following words.

00:04:12--> 00:04:30

Allah hum Maya hi Yaga yom. In fact, he just started with yah, yah. Yah ha yaka Yun Bella hermetica esta reef, US li li Shan nee Kula, while attacking me Isla enough see perfetta in

00:04:31--> 00:04:37

the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaching his own family, teaching his own family

00:04:38--> 00:05:00

to call out to Allah every morning and evening. It is important for us to analyze this. Why was he teaching it to his family because it was obviously very important. The Messenger, the greatest of creatures, the most blessed, the most loved by Allah subhanho wa Taala teaching his family to say something every

00:05:00--> 00:05:54

Morning Good evening. Yeah How you yakka yomo so that is calling out to Allah. Oh you who is ever living alert you know, you know what's going on the minute you say oh you who is all alive you know and hi The one who is alive yes but he is alive for you as well in the sense that he will take care of every one of your needs. You're calling Allah with a beautiful name of his yeah Hi You are you who is ever living and this name has very deep meaning in it. And then we say yaka yom. yom is the one who is present for you at your service for your protection at all times. And in all places. I will consume the all alert all powerful, all able all in one. Yeah, hi, yo, yo, yo, just by saying

00:05:54--> 00:06:53

those names of Allah, you've already praised Allah tremendously. If only you understood what that meant. Yeah, hi, you Yeah, can you imagine we are expressing our we are expressing our weakness, and the fact that we are incapable of protecting ourselves except with the help of Allah. And we are dependent on Allah when Allah is totally independent. Yeah, how you Yeah. And calling out to you, oh, you who is all alert or alive, all capable, all Abel, who is there for me at all times in all places, who is able to do anything and everything? Oh, you now we're calling out to Allah. Be matica Esther, if it is your mercy that I desperately seek, is the law is the law is when you desperately

00:06:53--> 00:07:42

seek something from Allah and Allah unknown is the law that is not allowed except from Allah. I cannot seek is the law I cannot do is devata I cannot seek that desperate help except from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So I've got to say Bera Matic as the reef, Allah, it is your mercy that I desperately seek. So you use these names. You then said, it is your mercy that I desperately seek so I'm in desperate need right now. For what for your mercy. Oh, you who is all capable or able now what type of mercy would you like? Obviously, everyone is in different situations, no matter who you are, where you are. We have unique situations but the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. When he

00:07:42--> 00:08:34

teaches a doula it encompasses everyone everywhere. And everything Subhanallah so we have Yeah, hi yaka.

Hi Yata yom barometric as the reef asleep Alisha Nicola wala to kill me. Ilan FC talofa tie in. And don't leave me alone, even for the blink of an eye. Don't leave me to attend to myself. Don't leave me to myself alone, that you are not with me even for a moment. I need your mercy at all times for every moment while I'm awake while I'm asleep. While I'm here while I'm there. When I remember you when I am oblivious of you may Allah never make us oblivious of Him. May Allah protect us at all

00:09:26--> 00:10:00

times. So we are saying while attacking me Illa enough see the time. Don't leave me to myself even for this the moment that it takes to blink an eye May Allah subhanho wa Taala be there for us at all times. May he help us? May He grant us May he guide us May he open our doors May he truly be serving his mercy upon us and showering his blessings upon us at all times. He is alhaj Alka yom my brothers and sisters did you know that it's very

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

Very important to try and learn the supplications that were made or taught by the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him as well as those that are in the Quran. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us an understanding. Allah has many names and qualities. Allah has many names and qualities. And Allah loves for us to use those names and qualities to call out to Him. And that's why it's important for us not just to say yeah, Allah, but we say yeah, man we are Rahim. Oh you who is most merciful? Are you who is most forgiving? Are you who listens to the oh you Who is the Almighty, oh you Who is the greatest oh you Who is the cure, oh you Who is the owner of the day of judgment and so on. Learn the

00:10:48--> 00:11:29

names of Allah because in another Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also tells us about how anyone who learns 99 of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala memorizes them, understands them and uses them to worship Allah to call out to Him to supplicate to him, they will have paradise in return because they recognize that law. You recognize the law through his names and qualities. So if you were to understand every name of Allah, and every quality of Allah and you were to know and believe that nobody can be equal to Allah in any of his names, or qualities,

00:11:31--> 00:12:22

in a second Come with me Shay, there is nothing like unto Allah. Nobody, no thing like unto Allah wa who was semi on Bosley, yet he is all hearing all seeing. So his hearing is like none other. And he's seeing is like none other. It is way beyond the hearing and seeing of anyone else. So my brothers and sisters, learn the names of Allah. Also, it's important for us to know that when we've learned the names and qualities of Allah, we've memorized them at least 99 of them and they go beyond that figure, but at least 99 of them, we need to memorize them in sha Allah, understand them, use them to call out to Allah, it will help us recognize Allah when you recognize that Allah says,

00:12:22--> 00:13:08

You know what, man Asahi, la de halogen, whoever has memorized them, all of them, and the word memorize, I've tried to summarize the various meanings that the scholars have put into that particular word. And inshallah, when we do that, we will definitely earn paradise. And then there is a name that we don't know, we don't know exactly which name it is, but one of the names of Allah, if you were to call out to Him using that particular name, it's called is Mullah Hill album, The Greatest Name of Allah. If you were to use that name to call out to Allah, he would give you exactly what you want, when you want how you want it. That's in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:13:08--> 00:13:59

wa sallam. But the question is, what is that name? I don't know. You don't know. Perhaps there are some opinions. Yeah, I had a summit Allah De La La Jolla, mula, etc. Hola, Mia. Kula Hakuna had various opinions. But the reality is we don't know that name. You need to call out using every name that you've ever come across and quality of Allah in order for you to get what you want exactly how you want it when you want it. So I thought I'd share with you in today's sermon, the beautiful do our yahaya be automatic as the reef as literally chutney Kula wallet, a kidney NFC perfetta in and I've explained it, it is referring initially calling out to Allah with his names are you who is all

00:13:59--> 00:14:12

alert, all awake, all able all capable, the one who is there for me at all times all places. I desperately seek Your mercy. I desperately seek Your mercy

00:14:13--> 00:14:50

in all my affairs, all my matters. Don't leave me to myself, even for the batting of an eyelid, even for the blinking of an eye. That's the dua you should make it every morning. And every evening. You can repeat it as many times as you want odd numbers, make sure you're concentrating and see how you feel. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us with the ability to memorize this. And many other do as made by the prophets Allah salon or taught by him for indeed, that is the mercy of Allah akula Kali hada sallallahu wasallam our Baraka Elena, Bina Mohammed
