One owner Xin Amina Nima who worship

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

me.

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

A Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah early he was happy Germain. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his household, his companions, we ask Allah to bless them to bless every single one of us, and to grant us the best of the best. I mean, my brothers and sisters, welcome to this brand new series entitled verses of hope and healing from the noble are on. And you and I know that a lot has happened recently on Earth. Many people are still struggling. And only Allah subhanho wa Taala would give them comfort and alleviate their

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

suffering. May Allah grant us all alleviation and goodness. I mean, so I'd like to commence with what some of the scholars consider the first verse of the Quran. And some say it's not the verse of Surah Al Fatiha the first verse, but they say that it is to be read before you commence the recitation of the Quran. So here goes Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful Subhana Allah, Allah Rahman, and Rahim, those are the names of Allah, we will get to them. But to start off with Bismillah, the first words of hope and healing, indeed the name of Allah, to take the name of Allah whenever you're doing anything, whenever you commence

00:01:54--> 00:02:42

anything. The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him says, anyone who does not take the name of Allah when doing anything of importance, will not achieve much from that particular thing. All in one duration, it will be cut off from blessings from goodness. So learn to take the name of Allah no matter what you do, it will give you a lot of comfort, it will heal your broken soul, it will give you lots of hope. Because who is Allah? Whose name are you actually taking, you're taking the name of your maker, the one who is an absolute control of entire existence, the one whom you're going to return to when you close your eyes, the one who is the cherisher, the Sustainer, the provider, the

00:02:42--> 00:03:24

protector, that Chiara Subhana, Allah, In the Name of Allah, the One who deserves to be worshipped Him alone, we worship Subhana Allah. So when we take the name of Allah, we would definitely be blessing whatever we're about to do all the situation where in even when you're about to eat, we're taught to say Bismillah, In the Name of Allah, the One who provided us this food, the one who is the owner of the solutions of the difficulties and hardship that I am going through all that I may face, the one who's designed my entire life. So Bismillah In the name of Allah,

00:03:25--> 00:04:17

my brothers and sisters, that in itself has a lot of goodness. But on top of that, Allah subhanho wa Taala decides to focus on two of his qualities, both extracted from the quality of mercy. One is the Especially Merciful, and the other is the Merciful, the encompassing, merciful. Ooh encompasses everything. So when you say Rahim, it is Especially Merciful, the special Mercy of Allah descending upon those who actually believe in Allah. So the believers there is a special mercy for them. That is our Rahim. It is depicted in the quality Rahim. Allah has mercy on the believers, that is a special type of mercy. Imagine the hope that we achieve knowing that there is a special mercy

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

designated for me from Allah subhanho wa Taala, In the name of Allah, whose mercy encompasses me, and not just me, but everything Subhana Allah. So this is why you here are Rahman and Rahim in the same verse. This is actually a verse of surah to naml. But whether or not it is a verse of every surah there is difference of opinion among the scholars with the vast majority saying it is not a verse of every surah but it is a verse of surah tunnel, and it is to be repeated whenever you're doing something of importance. One of the most important things you could be doing is the recitation of the Quran. So therefore

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

We seek Allah's protection from Shaitan, the cursed, which is also a powerful point of healing, every time you're reading the Quran, Allah says, We either don't call Anna alpha either Dell or NFS Dave Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim. Whenever you are reading the Quran, you should seek the protection of Allah from shavon de accussed. That's in order to heal your heart without the contamination of the devil, your heart will heal. And definitely you will be able to achieve much more, Allah will protect you from shavon that's a lot of hope in there. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala truly protect us from all that which is harmful. So to start off with this beautiful,

00:05:44--> 00:06:29

beautiful verse, which like I said, according to the majority is not part of every surah or the beginning of every surah. But still, to start off with it, in anything in everything that is of any form of importance is actually the root of all goodness, because to put Allah Who is the root or the Creator, you know, the root of all goodness is definitely alive as well. So to start off with his name would be to start off with this beautiful, beautiful proclamation that I am starting in the name of my Lord who made me the one in control the one whom I'm going to return to so my brothers and sisters never forget to say the name of Allah, on everything that you want to do that is of

00:06:29--> 00:06:44

importance Bismillah In the name of Allah Rahman r Rahim. So in it there is a lot of cure. And this is why Allah says in the Quran, one, zero Amina Nima who was Shiva

00:06:46--> 00:07:05

meaning in indeed we have revealed in this plan that we're in which there is cure, and mercy for the believers, a lot of cure. So when you're fulfilling what Allah has asked you to fulfill you will achieve a lot of hope.

00:07:06--> 00:07:16

Because you're doing what Allah has asked you to do. Let's move on my brothers and sisters to Surah Al Fatiha seeing that our time is restricted, but we're not going to

00:07:17--> 00:07:45

miss any of the points here in Surah. To Fatiha especially, here goes where Allah says in Surah Fatiha Alhamdulillah imagine the beginning of the sport and starts off with All praise is due to Allah. praise is due to Allah upon good conditions that we know but what about upon bad conditions? So we are taught still praise Allah is in control Alhamdulillah Allah coonley Han.

00:07:46--> 00:08:28

All praise is due to Allah upon all conditions. And for this reason, on the day of judgment, a cola is going to call out to say Where are those who used to praise Allah upon all conditions, and when they will be called out, they will be told to enter Jannah before everyone else Subhan Allah, so praise Allah in it, there is a lot of hope, hope that I'm going to be entering paradise before everyone else because I'm praising Allah. And in it, there is a lot of healing because even in a bad condition, I'm praising Allah. Praise Allah when you're going through difficulty and see what happens and humbling that things could have been worse. I thank Allah I praise Allah. Why? Because

00:08:28--> 00:09:12

he is a bull. I mean, He is the Lord of the worlds he created me and everything in existence was created solely and only by Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no partner with Allah in creation Subhana Allah. So this is why when we say Alhamdulillah he Rob beloved me when we achieve a lot of comfort, we repeat this in every prayer, your prayer is not valid without this verse and the surah being recited in it because while llahi there is hope and healing in this specific verse and the surah and the Quran at large, and this is why we're talking about it, what problem do you have? Thank Allah. Remember He is the Lord of the worlds turned to him. He is the Most Merciful. Take his

00:09:12--> 00:09:56

name Subhan Allah, look at the power of just the beginning. We haven't even started my brothers and sisters. And we can see the Quran is filled with verses of hope and healing. No matter what you're going through, take it in your stride. Allah is the Greatest, Allah says, a rough man you're Rahi Raheem once again he repeats these qualities in Surah Al Fatiha the second verse, the quality of the the merciful, especially merciful Subhana Allah and the mercy that encompasses everything to different types of mercy. He has a specialized mercy for those who believe so have hope in Allah when things are going wrong according to you remember, they're going right according to Allah,

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

ultimately, what do you want? Oh believer, you want paradise

00:10:00--> 00:10:32

And you want to be able to survive your life on earth and insha Allah with a little bit of comfort. May Allah grant us comfort, goodness, healing and hope and May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors for indeed my brothers and sisters, we must thank Allah that He revealed to us the most amazing word because it is His Word, the Word of Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us from his goodness, Apolo Kali hada. Also Allah who was Allah, Allah Nabina Muhammad wa known as xeno Minato Nima who worship
