Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Welcome back to this beautiful beautiful series we have this year. It is known as supplications. from Revelation every one of us makes do our we call out to Allah we need to know how to call out to Allah. We want our to ask to be accepted and we are looking at those two as mentioned in Revelation. Revelation includes the Quran and the student of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Abdullah, he was a Sunni Mohammed, Allah, Allah, he was happy as main. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the best of creation, the most

00:00:52--> 00:01:04

noble of all messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala his household companions and every one of us may Allah bless us and grant us the best month of Ramadan. I mean, my brothers and sisters,

00:01:05--> 00:01:32

episode number two, we ended by making mention of the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the fact that they called out to Allah in Surah, two ambia verse number 90 Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in a home can you sorry una feel hieratic? Let me recite this beautiful verse, in whom can you sorry own happiness via their own Anna lava

00:01:34--> 00:01:59

waka and hola Anna for sharing. Indeed, they used to make haste. They used to make haste in doing good deeds. They used to compete when it comes to doing good deeds. And they used to call out to us with two qualities For indeed they were the ones who were humble. They were filled with humility, they were obedient.

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

What are these two qualities? Robin? Robin. They had hoped when they called out to Allah, that Allah would answer them. And they were fearful as well of the Wrath of Allah, the punishment of Allah, anything negative. So it's amazing. When I am in need, I have a fear, a fear of what a fear that there is something I want and I need, how do I get it, there are so many ways of doing it. Allah has given me a capacity, I may go out to look for the job, I don't know if the job is going to be good for me. I don't know if what I want is going to be good for me Say for example, those who are sick and Ill May Allah grant them cure. If you're looking for cure, you're going to go to this doctor,

00:02:36--> 00:03:09

you might want to go to another for a second opinion. But in the interim, through through that fear, when you call out to Allah, it brings within you hope, it brings within you hope, hope in the mercy of Allah I know of so many people whom the doctors have written off that you have so much to live. And that's it limited amount of time and they're still living, I know of plenty. Who was that? That was a law, that was a law, the maker May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant to to all those who are seeking yield. So this

00:03:10--> 00:03:35

this description of the way the messenger is used to call out is important because I need to learn from it. When Allah says Allah, he can learn levina de la hufa b Huda como punto de those are the ones who are rightly guided so with their guidance you should follow and you should make sure that you are following that guidance of the messengers Subhana Allah, so when they called out to Allah, what did they do?

00:03:36--> 00:04:00

They called out to Allah having hope in the mercy of Allah knowing that Allah is going to respond and at the same time, they had fear. They had a sense of consciousness of Allah, knowing that if Allah doesn't help, who's going to help? So when we call out to Allah Subhana, Allah to Allah, we should definitely be from among those who understand this.

00:04:02--> 00:04:05

So my brothers and sisters, I'm going to give you a few of these do as

00:04:06--> 00:04:21

of the prophets of Allah, they sought forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Isn't it strange? Isn't it amazing? You have Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam flawless,

00:04:22--> 00:04:59

no sense. Nothing against his name that is negative and he's seeking the forgiveness of Allah. And he's calling out to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Surely those of us who are his followers need to make sure we've taken that and we will repeat it we will do it exactly how he did it. Subhan Allah. But let's look at the previous prophets also massumi chosen by Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks to us about how Adam alayhis salam called out I already made mention of that in the previous episode, then I want to move on to move on.

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

The Prophet Noah May peace be upon him.

00:05:04--> 00:05:41

What happened at the time of the Prophet Mohammed a salam, he asked Allah to save his son. Now many of us have children may Allah bless those who don't have children with children. I mean, and May Allah bless those who have children, that those children would be the coolness of their eyes. I mean, no Halle Salam had a son who did not want to listen to him. So we know la Salaam told him I'm a prophet of Allah, you need to worship Allah alone. He just went away. And he decided he doesn't want he's going to climb the mountain when the water started coming. And the rains and all the water was gushing from everywhere. He decided, you know what, I'm going to climb the mountain. No, Holly

00:05:41--> 00:06:02

Sam says no, my son come, but he didn't. So no, Holly Sam was saddened because obviously his son did not accept the message. So he had asked a lot to save his son, but the son was not saved. Later on, he realized that you know what? I shouldn't have done that.

00:06:03--> 00:06:51

Now, we wouldn't even consider this a sin or something. We need to seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala for take a look at the high level of these prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala their status was so high that what we don't even consider something you need to seek forgiveness for they sought forgiveness for that. So no had a Salam says Rob be in the beaker and as Allah Kamali said he be in amazing verse, this verses in Surah Hood, verse number 47. No hallasan I'm saying Oh, my Arab all my Arab I am seeking protection in you from having asked you that which I don't have knowledge. Wow. We don't even consider that as sin. You know, I asked a lot. I didn't give me Okay,

00:06:51--> 00:07:05

so Allahu Akbar. May Allah not do that to us, but I'm just giving you an example. Elisa Lam said Oh, Allah saved my son and the son was not saved anything Allah I seek your protection from having asked you something that I don't have knowledge about. Allahu Akbar

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

was in double V or double whammy.

00:07:13--> 00:07:38

mean aloha serien. If you don't forgive me, and you don't have mercy on me, I am going to be from those who are the losers. I'm going to be from the losers. My brothers and sisters. Do you notice the similarity between other Malaysian items and no holiday? Sometimes they will not too far off. Apparently, according to the narrations. They were only 10 generations of people between no and Adam alayhis salam.

00:07:39--> 00:08:23

He's calling out saying the same thing. Oh, Allah, if you don't forgive me, you don't have mercy on me. I'm going to be from amongst the losers. In that case, they said, if you don't have if you don't forgive us, and if you don't have mercy on us, we will be from among the losers who was that? Adam and Eve Hawa la Hama Salam. And here it is know how many of us when we call out to Allah we say Allah forgive me. If you don't forgive me. And if you don't have mercy upon me. I'm going to be from the losers. Allahu Akbar. Don't you think we should add that in our to us? Oh, Allah. If you don't have mercy on me. If you don't forgive me, I'm good to be from the losers. Look, Adam alayhis salam

00:08:23--> 00:08:46

said exactly the same thing. No holy Salam for something else totally is saying the same thing. What a lot of value utter harmony, a communal hustling I'm going to be from among the losers. And Allah subhanho wa Taala responded to him in such a beautiful way. I want to move on to another doo doo hour of Abraham Ali Salaam, you and I know Ibrahim Alayhi Salam had a special relationship with Allah.

00:08:47--> 00:09:21

Allah tested him so much. One after the other. He kept on calling out to Allah with us. We have tests that Allah places in our lives one after the other five, six and we become despondent. We want to lose faith. We want to lose hope in the mercy of Allah. But go back and look at those who are better than you better than I. They had more hope and they suffered much more than you and I, Ibrahim alayhis salam, one after the other. So many things happened. I want to actually concentrate on this application. He says, Rob big v one e one e mini ommaya como hacer

00:09:22--> 00:10:00

surah Ibrahim, the whole chapter is named after him. He says Allah forgive me, my parents and all the believers on the day that you will take the accounts, the day of reckoning. What do I learn from this? Ibrahim Alayhi Salam he may do after his parents This was prior to the prohibition of making dua for those who have passed away on disbelief for their mercy. But besides that, his concern was not about himself alone. How many of us when we call out to Allah, we're just worried about ourselves or like, give me give me give me I want I'll have I want or my children.

00:10:00--> 00:10:43

That's it. It stops at your children. Make do it for yourself. Yes, your family members definitely. broaden it the community not only that all those to come those who have passed, what does it cost you to include them? All? I have mercy on every one of us. I mean, what does it cost you to include them? Why become stingy, miserly, niggardly when it comes to Doha, it's not something material, you're losing nothing. In fact, you're gaining because when you pray for others, the angels are praying for you. So here, Ibrahim Alayhi Salam says, Oh, my Arab notice is using also the term rub. Rub Donna is Robbie spoke about here is Rob banner, robina fee Wali, Oh ALLAH forgive me, my

00:10:43--> 00:11:08

parents, my family members and the meaning the day of reckoning. So his mind is gone far his belief is gone far. He believes that there is a day of reckoning indeed, it's manifest from his job, and he's gone so far that Allah forgives all of us. He didn't say those are got along with forgive them, those I didn't get along with, punish them, etc. No, you need to be broad. You need to have a good heart. You need to open that heart. Oh Allah, forgive us.

00:11:09--> 00:11:45

Subhana Allah. This is a beautiful day out of Ibrahim alayhis salam. And then there is another Tao of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, where he says, Well levy automa al Fulani Houthi at home at the scene he says and he is the one he was describing Allah, He is the one whom I have hope that he will forgive my sins on the Day of Judgment Subhana Allah, He is the one whom I have hope he will forgive my sins on the Day of Judgment. Brothers and sisters.

00:11:47--> 00:12:00

Learn to have hope in the mercy of Allah. have hope in the mercy of Allah no matter what you've done, no matter what you're trying to achieve, have hope in the mercy of Allah, Allah will never leave you for as long as you do not leave Allah.

00:12:02--> 00:12:32

If you leave Allah, you will be a goner. Subhana Allah, Allah have mercy on the Quran says they forgot Allah Subhan Allah left him. But for as long as you have Allah, flickering in your heart, Allah is with you never lose hope. Don't allow the devil to come to you to make you think that you know what, there is no mercy of Allah for me, there will always be Mercy of Allah. Even upon your deathbed, the best thing you could have is hope in the mercy of Allah hope that the Hereafter is going to be better than this life.

00:12:33--> 00:12:57

Many people are ill and sick on their deathbeds. And people don't know what to tell them, remind them of their good deeds, remind them of the mercy of Allah, remind them of the beauty of gender and tell them you are definitely going to gender fulfill those by the word of Allah. If you had a man and you tried and you believed in Allah, well, there is good waiting for you. It can never be bad for a moment. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us protection. Then

00:12:58--> 00:13:22

Ibrahim alayhi salam, as he was going through the, the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He always called out to Allah, it was not enough for him to just do what Allah wanted and then carry on. No, he always said Oh Allah accepted from us, or Allah forgive us. Let's take a look at the example in sort of Bukhara he says, What arena man? Is he gonna walk

00:13:24--> 00:13:25

in

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

that

00:13:28--> 00:13:40

rocking? Show us? Show us our acts of worship? And forgive us for indeed you are the most forgiving, the Most Merciful.

00:13:41--> 00:14:18

We learn a lot from this draft of Ibrahim alayhis salam, you are meaning supplication we learn a lot from it. He says Oh Allah show us our acts of worship, show us how you want to be worshipped. He didn't just do whatever he wanted and said right Allah will take it because you know what my heart is and said, he actually said Allah guide us show us how you want to be worshipped arena Manasa Cana then he says to Ballina And forgive us. We're going to try our best to fulfill what you've asked us to fulfill in the best possible way. And we want you to forgive our shortcomings. We want you to forgive that which we know the sins we've committed and even the shortfall in the worship that we're

00:14:18--> 00:14:20

supposed to be fulfilling for your sake.

00:14:21--> 00:14:24

So Oh, Allah. Forgive us

00:14:25--> 00:14:27

to Ballina why.

00:14:28--> 00:14:59

In the cantata Brahim, you are the one who is most forgiving, most merciful to what is the name of Allah that refers to the one who constantly forgives one after the other Didn't I tell you, you did one thing you did two things, three things, five things 10 things keep on seeking the forgiveness of Allah. Repeated repetition helps you when you have a duel you want to make keep repeating the drop. I remember a time when I made the do app, and I kept repeating this to add at some people considered impossible, and I repeated it so much and so often

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

morning, afternoon, evening and night. One two, together with praising Allah and all other things and attain came some years later when I was given that Subhana Allah in a miraculous way I'm talking of myself, I'm sure there are so many of us who have similar examples. But the best examples are those of the prophets of Allah. Here, they always had hope, Oh Allah, you are the most forgiving, Most Merciful. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us forgiveness. I'm showing you the verses of the Quran supplications the seeking of forgiveness of the prophets of Allah yet they did not need it. Look at Musa alayhis Salam musala is Salatu was Salam. Once he had punched someone, Allah took that

00:15:38--> 00:16:04

person's life away. Right? But as a result, he felt it and he was so so remorseful and immediately he felt the regret. Within a split moment, he said, Valentina FC O Allah, I've wronged myself. Notice the same word used by other malissa Valentin FC, they said Rama and Susannah, how many of us say oh, well, I've wronged myself. Oh Allah, I have wronged myself.

00:16:05--> 00:16:15

Color have been in the vollum tune FC, V. O Allah. This is at Mu salesianum. saying, Oh Allah, oh my god.

00:16:17--> 00:17:05

I have wronged myself. So forgive me. Just that one word, forgive me. So forgive me. So Allah says, favara Allah, so he forgave him. He asked Allah forgiveness sincerely with remorse, repentance, and Allah says we forgive him. What did it require of him in terms of words, or being in voluntown? FC? v. Oh, my rub I have wronged myself. So forgive me. Allah says Allah for Allah. So Allah forgave him. Wow. As simple as that. And we are busy sitting here losing hope to say, Oh, you know, I think I've done too much. And I think it's, you know, Allah won't forgive me. I've come across so many people who keep saying this. It's dangerous. No, be determined, seek the forgiveness of Allah. But

00:17:05--> 00:17:16

you need to believe that you've wronged yourself because when you commit to sin, you're not harming Allah. You're not taking anything away from the kingdom of Allah, but rather you are harming yourself.

00:17:18--> 00:17:27

So seek the forgiveness of Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala will forgive you. And you know what, in that verse, the verse of secret sauce, verse number 16. Allah says,

00:17:29--> 00:17:37

In who who Allah for Rahim Indeed, Allah is most forgiving, Most Merciful. You see terroir is also

00:17:38--> 00:18:19

the one who forgives often to work to what is actually the one who accepts the return of those who are returning to him, and therefore is the one who forgives. So Han Allah. So there is the difference between the two is something interesting one is when you return to Allah, you've changed your ways, your habits, you know that everything has changed, and I've come back to Allah Talib, I've returned to Allah. It's as good as you you're not committing any sin before. At Evo Mina Lambie, Camilla Adam Bella Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam says the one who sought forgiveness from sin is equivalent to he who did not commit sin at all. Subhana Allah, why because you changed your life.

00:18:20--> 00:18:26

A fool here is referring to Allah forgiving and Allah keeps forgiving, and that's the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So

00:18:28--> 00:18:33

Allah says, you know who, who Allah for him. Then when Musa alayhis salam was entering

00:18:35--> 00:18:44

when he was tasked to go to the Pharaoh and he's going to fit down he says, Rob bill field Lee when he asked him, What are the thing having your automatic

00:18:46--> 00:19:36

hammer Rahimi in our Abba, forgive me, oh my Rob, forgive me and my brother, oh my God, forgive me and my brother and enter us into your mercy. We want you to shower upon us Your mercy. We want to have taste and feel the mercy of yours of Allah. Rob bill fiddly while he was the Philadelphia medic, one Dr. hamre he mean, that is in Surah, two RF verse number 140. In fact, verse number 151. So my brothers and sisters here again mentioned is made of the qualities of Allah, some of the qualities of Allah the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala. When you want to seek the forgiveness of Allah declare his praise, make sure you know the names of Allah few of the names of Allah subhanho

00:19:36--> 00:20:00

wa Taala you use them. Look, he's saying we want your mercy you are the owner of mercy. That's why we say when you want to cure, you say Allahu mushfiq Yeah, Shafi Oh Allah cure us You are the owner of cure, or Yeah, Shafi ishine, owner of cure cure me, Yara Zach or zucchini owner of sustenance, Grant me sustenance. So you are actually declaring that Allah

00:20:00--> 00:20:35

is the owner of what you're asking for. No association of partnership. When we are calling out to Allah we're calling out to Allah alone. That's the secret of Sudoku Fatiha. So total Fatiha teaches this to us and all the prophets have done exactly the same. They say you are the one you are the owner of mercy, you are the owner of forgiveness, you are the Most Merciful. If you don't have mercy on us, we are the one who are going we are the ones who are going to lose. So this is also a very, very good that we learned from Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam. Another dua is the dual of Sulayman.

00:20:36--> 00:20:43

There are more do as of musasa, but we want to move in Sharla. The Tao of Suleiman Alayhi. Salatu was Salam.

00:20:46--> 00:20:50

He made such a powerful dua. Allah tested him,

00:20:51--> 00:21:02

one after the other. And this drug that he made he was granted. Imagine the type of love Allah has had for his messengers. May Allah love us with similar love Sammy

00:21:04--> 00:21:10

Suleiman and his Salatu was Salam says, and this verse is in Surah Assad verse number 35

00:21:12--> 00:21:15

caller of Bill Phillips me when I have any model can

00:21:16--> 00:21:20

be really hiding deep in

00:21:24--> 00:22:12

he says, Oh my Rob, forgive me and grant me kingdom that no one after me would have four indeed you are the grantor. You are the one who gives gifts. Wahab Heba is a gift and Wahab is the one who gives gifts, gifts gifts. If you want the gift of Allah you seek from Allah and you call him Allah hub. YAHWAH hub hub Li normally when we're asking for children, the term used is head, Li, you know, Grant me Alba hub YAHWAH, hub hub Li ri at MP button, we're going to come to that. inshallah, when we speak about Zachary la Salatu was Santa here. We're speaking about Suleyman. And he said, I'm saying Oh, Allah, forgive me. And grant me, I think it's important for us to know that without that

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

forgiveness, don't expect to have from Allah something. We seek Allah's forgiveness. We're on the same page, as I've been saying. And then we say, oh, Allah, Grant me this grant me that grant me what I want for indeed, you're the owner of this. You're the owner of that you're the owner of absolutely everything. That's the mercy of Allah.

00:22:32--> 00:22:35

So when we look at Sulaiman Alayhi, Salatu was Salam.

00:22:36--> 00:23:12

And we see he was given everything kingdom, such that the jinn were under his instruction, the wind under his instruction, the clouds under his instruction, the ants, he could communicate with them, he instructed them, the birds, the insects, everything, everything he was granted, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam was given more than a man alehissalaam but from a different angle. Suleiman Alayhi Salam was given something unique Subhana Allah, but even Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he says, and this makes me cry every time I think about it.

00:23:14--> 00:23:18

He says in Nila it for Hjelm. Bhima katakana you send him Allah.

00:23:19--> 00:23:56

He says, Well, I know a stone in Makkah that used to greet me Subhan Allah Subhana Allah imagine the stones recognize that this is the Nabhi of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And some of us couldn't even care Oh, the villa. He was the best of creation, the stone recognized him greeted him. And he says, Well, he I know a stone that used to greet me in Makkah rock that greeted me in MK Subhana Allah so he also communicated with all these things, just literally man and he said he did. But he was favored way beyond Sulaiman. alayhi salatu salam in different ways in ways that will a man la Salam did not see. But this was the DA

00:23:58--> 00:24:22

when it comes to Tao Wu Alayhi Salam who was the father of a man and his son and we will see his daughter inshallah, in the next episode May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all. I'm really enjoying this beautiful, beautiful season of Ramadan. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow with more of these beautiful supplications akuto Kohli hava sallallahu wasallam Allah Baraka Nabina Muhammad was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah
