To create a
payment, the mean when are on a lot,
a lot more
than someone wanting to sell them on it, he was lucky he was selling them to
the brothers and sisters in this topic, we're talking about what we're talking about.
Allah subhana wa tada tells us something very, very important about the names of the loss patterns, I know that sometimes we misinterpret, or we misunderstand. And many times when you don't speak Arabic, or when you don't understand the language of the book, as you're reading through the names and the attributes of a loss. How many times have you come across a name in English that you didn't even understand? Like, what is this supposed to mean? Right? Or it's just duplication? Right? I was a was a was before what was what do the was all of these things. And it'll be transferred. You know, it'll be translated as you know, compassionate, merciful, merciful, merciful. And then you'll see
all kinds of other words that you've never even heard and that you don't even use in your vocabulary. And a lot tells us,
to Allah belong the most beautiful of names. So call upon him with those names, interact with him with those names. That's a very powerful thing. Because if you really think about that, how are we supposed to interact with the last kind of data and personalize our eyes? We don't even know what his names Truly Me. So then you come with he's the most merciful? And we're buried in mercy. But then what is the difference between man and machine? Because they come from the same word, then where does our food come in? You know, come into play, where does it come into play? What does that mean? How do you break all of this together? And how do you turn this into a fruitful conversation
with the last panel, it's Adam, I will make this a successful.
Because if you don't understand that, don't ponder upon them, then you're in you're out of luck, quality, just as you like understanding of the one who you're calling upon.
So it's extremely important for us to analyze each and every single name and then to call upon
this verse, that as we see in the life of the Prophet,
you are the one who is in no need whatsoever, you have no needs, you are self sufficient. And we are in need of you. Until whenever
you are the one who is endowed with all strength and power, and we are the ones who are in need of you, we are the weak ones, we are the ones who have no strength. This is how you interact with a loss of
understanding his names. So I just want to look at for the few moments that we have these names of Allah Subhana, which Allah,
Allah, Allah, food, and honey,
five names that I want you to take home with you tonight. And I want you to be able to call upon the last hour with these names. And I want you to have a full understanding of them. You see if you translate it as mercy, mercy can mean many things in the English language. And in fact, mercy can be void devoid of love. Right? If you see a cat on the road that's been hit by a car, and you go and you pick that cat off the road, you throw it on the side, you you committed an act of mercy, you showed an act of mercy to that capital, that doesn't mean that you love that cat. And so save allies most merciful, using the word Mercy is truly not enough to really convey the meaning of this
beautiful name of a loss to Allah. And these two names that we are commanded to start, every school is going on with the exception of one with the one the name that we say are the names that we pronounce, as we leave our homes, enter our rooms begin our meals at the end of our meals, you know, beginning every act of worship and even apps that are not acts of worship, Allah wants us to consistently be reminded This is not
in the name of Allah.
And if we look at the root of this word, we truly understand something they both come from the word
and in the Arabic language, the word emotion
refers to the right when you say similar,
connecting or establishing and upholding ties of kinship, you're talking about the wound.
And so the scholars say something very beautiful about this. The strongest, the strongest form of love that exists on the face of the earth is the love that a mother has for her child. It's not just mercy. It's a different type of love. Right? You know, sometimes you would see a woman, when her baby starts crying, she starts crying.
Right? And if you're a man, you think that psychotic, like what's wrong with you, but it's a whole nother form of love. And a mother will always be open to her child, the mother will always yearn for a child. It's the strongest form of love that exists. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam chose that incident to make to bring into light. This beautiful name and attribute of a loss of Hannah two out of the incident in which a woman ran between the ranks of Havas. They were carrying their swords to find her child and she grabbed her child. And when she grabbed her child, she started to suckle him, holding him so tight and so hungover and all the profits of a lot of it
was that I wanted to make light of this incident and said, You see that? Do you think that woman would ever throw her child into a fire?
You think that woman would ever go her child into a fire? A law is more merciful and compassionate with you than that mother is with her child. That's not just in dunya. That's an accurate as
a human law says. If I had a choice to be judged on the Day of Judgment, by law, or by my parents, I would choose a law because a lot of it has more with me than my own true parents.
So then you might be thinking to yourself, if that's the case, then why does Hellfire exist? And the answer is as
a person has failed, and last one, he manages to miss the mercy of the law that has encompassed all things. Imagine what it would take for that woman to throw a child into the fire. Likewise, there are things that the human being does to reach, to reach Hellfire to reach Jehovah. But Allah subhanho wa Taala Not only is he merciful with him,
to Allah, allow him to benefit from his mercy because of this life. Everyone benefits from
the Kufa, disbelievers those who would curse God benefits.
The love that a mother has for her child is a manifestation of the mercy and love and compassion between two animals is from
say, wait a minute. What about us? What about the believers? Right? That's why
he's exclusively merciful Rahim to the believers on the Day of Judgment. There's a special type of mercy that's there.
And then you might think to yourself, Well, wait a minute. A lot is
exclusively merciful. But how do I know that I can qualify for him. Because I'm so terrible. I've done so much. And you know, that's what the shaman does. He comes to you before you commit a sin and say what is your favorite will see in the world? You don't need to look for any website tells you
why you pray Mashallah. You fast Mashallah. You work a job? You go to the messages, you're good, what do you what are you worried about? shavon tells you it's all good. Man
reminds you a lot.
And say what tells you how great you are the minute that you commit the sin.
Shape one tells you how how vengeful last data is and tells you how horrible you are.
He completely flips the script on you. And so people end up this very, it goes from a healthy fear which is to an unhealthy fear, which is despair. What makes me think that I can enter into gentlemen, I've committed all of these Sandy's? Well, first and foremost, Allah.
Allah is the one who's forbearing.
And to truly understand that forbearance Imagine if a lot punish everyone right when they committed the sin.
You imagine right when you commit the sin a lightning bolt comes and strikes you when you're done.
Imagine how that would be
a loss of data if every single time a person cursed if every single time a person committed Zina
went ahead and took him down, punished him
He's worked very, so much so that
now we've all heard that
the one who repent from sin is like the one who's never seen before, but there's a whole nother level of it.
That whenever a person commits a sin
a loss of pattern which Allah tells the angel on his left, hold your pet for six hours
don't even write it down.
Give him a chance. You know sometimes right when you commit a sin you realize it right away, especially those who are close to Allah. Right they feel that guilt sooner and with more severity when Medina
those whenever they commit a sin whenever they commit an act of disobedience of open public sin, or any type of sin, they harm themselves frankly, law there are a number of law they say oh my god, I can't believe I didn't
even obey Him. So they immediately start to make
a last panel to Anna didn't even allow that to be written down in the first place.
But wait a minute, what is the sim carrying on?
What if it carried on and what if I didn't repentant six hours? What if I have a character flaw? That's been destroying me for 1015 years? What if I've been committing the same sin over and over and over again, I understand about the six hours but I really have no hope.
That's why I lost 44 means it's literally to take a hot pot of boiling water to cover it up in a way that not only does the water not come up but it actually cools down a lot covers it up for you forgiven forgetting
a lot. That's how merciful was
a lot is no food. But you know what? What if?
What if I've seen so much what if a lot does it just doesn't want to forgive me? You know, sometimes you find leaders that just quite frankly don't like you? What if a law just doesn't like me? Well, that's why I was I will do it.
He's the most loving
the prophets all along while he was alive. He didn't just tell us that Allah will forgive him it was merciful above shows pity. No, it's more comprehensive. A loss of Hannah Montana wants you to succeed. A loss of Hannah Montana is willing to fork to overlook 50 years of sin for a day of obedience if a person who
was willing to let it all go. And
he says something very beautiful. He says,
if you were not to sin,
I would remove you all. And we'll replace you with the people who would sin so they could seek His forgiveness so he could forgive them. You know, they say the beauty of an artist, right? When someone claims to be an artist, it shows it as art. Right? That's when you really know the beauty of the artist. You know how to love chef, he also wrote just a very powerful story to me. He was telling me the story just last week about a man who committed a huge sin,
destroying his family, huge sin. And he was bad. It wasn't like I looked at a girl or I went out I got caught. No, it was
real bad. She also says I asked him, he said, Do you know why?
You know why?
Because people like you exist.
You need a lot to cover up, right? We all need a lot to cover up for us. We need data to help us out on the day of judgment because none of us are gonna make it by deeds. We're all gonna make it by His mercy. And the goal is to just try to qualify for his mercy. But you want to know how easy that is? Remember what he said? What a loser you are, if you manage to miss the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah. Let me tell you how easy it is. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if someone has a good intention, and he follows it up with a good deed, what does
it write down for him?
What does it write down
10 good deeds up to 700
Allah wants to write for him. A lot multiplies it. And if a person has a bad intention, but ends up committing a good deed Now that doesn't mean you have a bad intention. When you commit the good deed, you start off with a bad intention.
Something happens along the way, you know, it manifests itself in a good deed.
does what? He writes down the good deed, it's okay. Don't sweat it, you forgive him.
Now, if you have a bad intention and you commit a bad deed, you know, usually as human beings, as human beings, do We reward more whenever people are generous with us, whenever people treat us in a way that they deserve a reward with rewardable behavior, or do we punish for whatever people offended us, we multiply the anger multiply the punishment, right? You could have been good to a person forever, you could have treated that person with good manners, you messed up one time, I've never seen anything.
You're terrible. You've never treated me with love. You've never loved me, you've never done this, we always multiply, punishment. we exaggerate the punishment a lot is the total opposite. You have a bad intention, you commit the sin, Allah writes it down for you as a sin, just one, and inshallah
he can forgive it, he can cover it up. Now the last one, and this is just incredible. What a person has
a bad intention.
It doesn't manifest itself in a bad deed. Right? He makes the intention to commit evil, but it doesn't manifest itself. What is the last time?
Somebody told me I know you guys are sleeping. Somebody tell me what does it do for that person?
No, not only does he not write it down, Allah writes down a good deed for him.
You imagine somebody coming to your house with a baseball bat to tear up your car, beat up your car. And then when they got to your house, they felt bad about it. You walked outside, you found that person, you know, holding the baseball bat about to hit the car, they said, they walked up to the door and said, Look, I was coming to your house to break your car to bust your car up. But I decided not to I just wanted to apologize. And you say, hey, well, let me pay you for the gas.
How much do you buy that that for?
writes down a good deed for you.
How amazing is alone? How loving is alone? how merciful is the law? How forbearing isn't a law? How compassionate is a law? It's Palawan. And we see instance in the seal that we look over and over and over again, I think that the province lies in the mentioned sorts of stories. The man who killed 99 people think of the most think of the worst serial killer you've ever seen. Right? Think of OJ Simpson, for example. That's a really unrepentant guy, right? killed his wife got away with it and wrote a book that said, If I would have killed my wife, this is how I would have done it. Wink, wink. Right? Imagine that guy coming up to a chef and saying, hey, do you think I can get away with
This guy killed 99. And he went to a righteous person. And he said to him, not I'm not a scholar. He went to a worshiper, a good guy.
And he said, I've killed 99 people, can I be forgiven? Do I have any chance? Or am I done for men? He says 99 people, you seriously think you just say stuff for the last start over? It's done?
Are you serious? Now the worshiper he's worshiping a lot of the time he's caught up in his own self.
So the man has such a serious temporary issues. Not only does he say, you know, go away, or not only does he not, you know, curse him out and just leave the message there, spit on him and punch him in the face. He kills him.
That's how addicted he's gotten to killing. You know, when you do it over and over and over again. It doesn't matter how severe the sin is. He killed the guy because he didn't like his answer. Understanding his situation. Then he went to a scholar, he says, Look, I killed 100 people. The last one being you know that righteous worshiper, the guy that was always in the desert, I killed him to any chance. So yeah, no one's gonna prevent you from being forgiven by
that you need to go start your life over Right.
Left. The Masjid decided to go start his life over died on the way. Now seriously, if it was any one of us judging that person, what would we say?
Seriously, you're gonna let go of 100 murders because he decided to start moving towards another land he probably would have find that found the guy over there and said, hey, look, I want to buy a house here. Got any real estate advice? Now I'm kind of busy probably would have killed him too. guy had some serious issues with killing people. We wouldn't have forgiven him. We would have looked at him with a skeptical eye. But how did the last panel tally? Look at him When the angels came to Allah. We don't know what to do with this guy. This is a case that puzzles us.
We'll just measure the distance between the land he left and the land he went to have
not said anything else. That is already incredible mercy beyond human capacity beyond what we could find, but didn't stop there.
The man was actually closer to the land that he left and I lost struck the earth so that we could be closer to the land he was going to
have one is the
other one is
the one who turns to you. The web literally means in other words, literally to turn to you.
That's upon a lot. Some people came to
me and they said to me, sir, how can we turn to Allah? subhanaw taala? How can we do that?
Isaiah says, a lot turned towards you before you turn to them just by you asking the question, that tab allow him to do
a lot turn to them so they could turn to him.
That's a lot. That's what we've got. That's who's gonna question this on the Day of Judgment. Isn't that amazing? Isn't that amazing? That's the one who's gonna question us. That's the one who's gonna look at me who's gonna say, here are the days that you've committed? That's my face on the day of judgment and
because we learned in the seat also have another battery, who didn't know God in his life.
That whenever the time of death came done, it occurred to him that you know what, I've been messing up my entire life. So he told his children what he said, burn me to ashes. So a lot can't get me. I'm afraid of God. I don't want him to get any just burned me to ashes. I've got no time left to repack, it's over when I'm gone. Right, burn me to ashes,
gathered him up on the Day of Judgment.
And would say, Oh, my slave, why did you do that?
And what would he say?
I was afraid of you. Oh, my lord.
And you know, and you know that. I was just afraid of you. Oh, Allah.
What was the answer of the Prophet slicin? What is the law say back to him? Somebody told me what doesn't want to say back to him. So I can show you what you miss. When you read over a hat even quickly. What did he say back to him?
He forgave him, right. But it's even more powerful than that.
A love forgave him because he burned himself.
A lot forgave him by virtue of the Senate.
Because the law recognized this part when he committed that major sin, common law. That's what we're dealing with. That's going to question us on the Day of Judgment. Allah wants you to turn to Him, Allah wants you to be forgiven. And in fact, a loss of Hannah to IRA will give you every single chance so much so that the prophets voice of themselves, a person can make a difference over to Allah until he starts foaming at the mouth. You know, when you're dying, and you're foaming at the mouth, and you're not making sense anymore. Allah will forgive you until that moment, no matter what you've done. Once you've done you can still be forgiven.
And we even see that fit out. And someone would say, Well, what about for the one that decides to make Toba?
Whenever the water was already in his lungs, and he was drowning, then he said,
You know what?
and who knows a lot better than gibreel.
Right? The angel that carries the message to all of the messengers who knows a lot better than
Jeffrey was afraid.
With all that he's done, still had a chance of being forgiven. So he went over the scene, he started kicking dirt into his mouth.
That shows you to breathe knows a lot. He knows a lot was even capable of forgiving.
shavon shavon and he
says something so powerful, a lot is so merciful, that say love with all that he's done. On the day of judgment. We think he has a chance
after making the challenge and all that he would still think he has a chance. Because that's
that's a that's an
that's a law that we're dealing with. That's the one who judges us.
Anybody else? That's the one who's gonna look at us. And that's the one who recognizes even the smallest effort. You're trying. You're trying. And sometimes we go to extremes and many times we go to extremes not even the Allah.
May Allah bless the scholar the greatest Philippine is the one who makes a person feel hopeful about loss and how to honor without giving him the concession to disobeyed him. You know, many times when we say
you don't tell a patient who's sick
that go ahead and keep disobeying the law because
you need to you need to remind yourself with the with the proper names at that moment, sometimes you need to scare yourself, right? Sometimes you need to scare yourself and say Mama was before him, but laws also as he's
speaking to his father, and doing Darwin to his father, he says, Yeah, I
am a second
year, I'm afraid punishment is going to come to you from who, you know, when you're trying to scare someone. You're not going to say punishments gonna come from a rough man, what are you gonna say, punishment is going to come from disease,
punishment is going to come from
punishment is going to come from the most powerful and
the one who subdues you better be careful with how
I'm afraid I will punish you.
You know what they say in the Arabic language, there's the same Kentucky loving Halloween
fear the anger of a person who's excessively forbearing.
You know, that person that never gets angry?
When they get angry, how bad is their anger? It's really bad.
It took a lot to push that person into that anger. You don't want to see them angry. A person who who virtually never gets angry. You don't want to see that person angry. So they thought he was saying to his father, yes, he's not I just told you about three times. But his being won't stop him from punishing you. You don't want to be punished by Allah.
And Allah doesn't want to punish us. And in fact, I would have not is more pleased with the Toba of his servants than the servant is with his own token.
I want to end with one story.
And Pamela this story is so incredible, because I looked back at some of the incidents of people that should have died in a car accident should have died on drugs that should have caught aids because they slept around over 100 times. I've seen people like that. And Allah still gave them a chance. Like, wow, I still gave that person a chance. Right? Why did a lot care about him? Right? He's a loser. You know, that kitten in our in the one who doesn't come to the best anymore that's gone so bad, that people just gave up on him. A lot didn't give up on him.
he says something very beautiful. And I want you to think about this tonight. think deeply about how much he cares about you. And he says one day I went out after so often.
And the habit of the Sonic game was to find a quiet place to do to who to *wits to contemplate right on the shores, at the ocean in the mountains just outside your roof, whatever it is to constantly take a break from the world
and make the good. So this was this happened every morning when he was on lockdown. So he says one day I went out on the shore to make difficult to contemplate and to remember a lot. And he said as I was looking around I saw a scorpion and a turtle
right at the scorpion was after the turtle you know he's picking up the turtle. Right? No turtle sitting there barely walk him stuff like that barely able to move in the scorpions messing with the turtle but he's not killing him.
So he said I just sat there and I watched him since upon a while this is amazing.
That he says the scorpion turned towards me.
Not that I personally remember in 2003 One time, I was walking down a hill
with Jordan. And as I was walking down this hill, I noticed this humongous Scorpion behind me. I ran like a little girl as fast as I could. That was the scariest moment of my life. Just looking back I was like
I didn't curse.
I'm sitting there watching the scorpion turn towards me. And it assumed towards me but it passed me up. Right? It came party but it didn't come out man. It just kept going as if it was going somewhere right as if it had heard some kind of call that it went somewhere.
So I got curious why follow the scorpion I was like this is a strange Scorpion, it didn't even try to kill me. So I followed the scorpion.
And I saw a man sleeping under a tree.
And while the man was sleeping under the tree, follow me with the story, there's a lot of animals involved. While the man is sleeping under the tree, a snake was about to bite him.
And as the snake was about to get him in, before I can even say anything, the scorpion jumped on the snake, it stung him, the state died in the scorpion died.
a lot caused all of that to happen.
Right? Just so that man could be protected, loves his service.
He was so touched by that incident alone cared enough about him
to make that happen.
Now that in and of itself is incredible, right? Now, if you're in his situation, you just saw that take place, you know that this man must be someone beloved to Allah. This must be a special person, this must be one of the only. So you want to know this person, you want to ask them hey, make dua for me, I just saw this happen. So the number was the last that I went up to my local hub, so that I could ask you to make your app for me so I can explain to him the incident.
And when he woke up his breath wreaked of alcohol,
he was drunk.
I thought this was somebody that was protecting and sent all this had all this take place.
So he was disappointed he was obviously disappointed in the madness of what's going on. Right hang over what's going on. So he never was he told him the story. He said, Well, I just saw the scorpion that was messing with the turtle
and then came out and he got past me up and didn't hurt me and ran towards a snake that was about to bite you and kill the snake and killed itself so that you could be protected and I thought to myself, wow, a lot really loves this person. So I went to befriend the ODM a lot.
And the men started to cry.
And he said, Allah did that for me.
A lot did that to me,
is pitiful servants. A lot care that much about me.
How many of us have woken up from a hanger,
a lot cared that much about this beautiful surface. So this man named Toba to a loss of Hannah Montana as a result of that, for us by radical reform.
So he became one of the people that always created the first line of the messages.
Allah wants to forgive you. Allah wants to accept your repentance. Allah wants to show mercy upon you. And on the Day of Judgment, a love doesn't even want to ask you about your needs, because of the profits licenses. And you'll be sure that whatever is asked on the day of judgment will perish, he will be punished. And I shall not be alone longer said the wait a minute, what about what kita? Who will be a need for self
care? What about the eye that whoever receives their book in their right hand, they will have an easy accountability and loss mentioning of hasaan here
that he can know.
That is just the presentation of the deeds.
But a lot won't even ask the believers alone will just tell you, you're forgiven. You made us the flop. Don't worry about it. You're forgiven. Here's your book in your right hand.
It's over. It's over promise it'll take your book to the scale that you're in gentlemen. You don't even have to be asked. You made an effort. You knew a lot beforehand and so you turn to Him. And then the iron poliana into the oblivion as a foreigner and forcing him
say Oh, my servants who have wronged themselves never disappear from the mercy of Allah because Allah covers all sins, and immediately afterwards a call to action. What any will eat I won't be como se moolah, but you're not going to have that that the time all the time. Some people don't get a chance to make Toba. So as soon as you've come to that realization, hurry up and turn to a last one as the Buddha submit yourself to Him. submit yourself to Him comedy
before a punishment comes to you, and you would not be protected them. We asked the last panel to Allah.
To show mercy and love upon us is pitiful service. We asked the last panel to how to make this work.
They, we asked the last cabinet to Allah.
We asked the law the most merciful to show mercy upon us the most compassionate to show compassion upon us. We ask Allah and Helene The one who was forbearing to be for bearing with us. We ask Allah Allah for the one who will cover sins to cover our sentence. We asked a lot, dude, the loving to love us. We asked a lot of candidates
to turn towards us so that we may turn to him and experience the light of guidance that was surrounding it.
