datamine what are the 111 online immune well kiba to Luma tacchini Allahumma salli wa Salam wa barakaatuh Abdi Cora Sudha Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam to seamen cathedra.

00:00:11--> 00:00:53

The brothers and sisters of the greatest gifts that Allah subhanaw taala has given to us is not just the access that we have to him. But the fact that he has told us so much about himself so that we could interact with him in such a personal way, will allow him to smell husana further who will be to Allah subhanaw taala belong the most beautiful, the most perfect of names and Krisna comes from his accent, it means the most perfect of names, the most beautiful of names. So call upon Allah subhanaw taala with those names and Subhanallah if you look at all of the names of Allah, that we have from the Quran, and from these established sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:00:53--> 00:01:37

each one of them offers us a different dimension, a different way that we can connect to Allah subhanaw taala. And you know what's amazing? As you go through all of these names of Allah, not only can you not grasp the full scope of that name, because Allah is not like us laser chemistry, he che, He's not like us. Not only can you not grasp the scope or the intensity of that name, but there are names that Allah subhanaw taala has not even revealed to us. Oh, so thrilled to be here, Edmund, labia Anguk, there are names that Allah subhanaw taala has kept to himself in the unseen, but he's given us enough of his name subhanho wa Taala that we can know him properly, that we can worship him

00:01:37--> 00:02:10

properly, that we can call upon him properly and there is not mentioned so many beautiful benefits of this when we're talking about how to get our do as accepted but I want to spend a little bit of time with this point with the night Tada. When you think of Mercy baraka of Allah subhanaw, taala, Allah human, there are very specific images of mercy that come to mind very specific impressions and expressions of mercy that come to your mind. But when the Prophet says some tells us that all the drama in this world comes from just one

00:02:11--> 00:02:55

of Allah subhanaw taala is 99 Mercy's? The rest of them he's reserved for Yeoman, Oklahoma. We don't even know what that looks like. We have no idea what that looks like. But we know enough that our Lord is merciful. And someone we call upon him with a Ramadan. We go to him as deeply wounded people wounded either spiritually or physically, emotionally, whatever it may be, but we know that our mom can fix us can put us together and so we call upon him a Rahman r Rahim. Specifically r Rahim as well, in the akhira what kind of meaning are Hema exclusively merciful to the believers in the Hereafter? And so each one of these names has an intensity has a scope has a dimension, and we can

00:02:55--> 00:03:39

only grasp so much of it but it's enough to personalize your address with Allah subhanho wa taala. And of course, when you call upon Allah, when you cannot think of all of the names you say, Allah, Allah, and what does that do to you when you just call upon Allah subhanho wa Taala or you call upon a Rahman? Right and Subhan Allah with with the early Muslims calling upon Ramadan was a means of protest as well because the Mushrikeen the disbelievers did not recognize the name of Rama. Imagine out of all names they could object to they object to a Ramadan and the believers call upon a rock man. Now how do you go beyond that? You have different Hadith somewhere the Prophet slice I

00:03:39--> 00:04:20

mentioned the Greatest Name of Allah subhana wa Tada. And does anyone know what what the Greatest Name of Allah subhanaw taala is, many of the scholars mentioned a Hadith of the Prophet sai somewhere he said that it is in a Bukhara and surah Taha, and so it's a high volume Allah Allah Allah Allah who will hire a young and 100 who will hire loca young, the Ever Living the ever sustaining. And of the benefits of that the scholars mentioned is that Al Haj speaks to all the names of Allah subhanaw taala and attributes that emanate of his very being of His very presence as a human sustaining, refer to all of the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala refer to fair

00:04:20--> 00:04:59

and fair Lea, his his doing subhanho wa Taala that he is ever present ever doing. And so all of the names and attributes stem from them so so many of the scholars say it's Mala Allah Olam, The Greatest Name of Allah subhanaw taala is an inhale a Yom so you have Allah Rahman Al Hey, are you how do you go beyond that? And how do you start to understand the more the prophets lie Selim says Allah has 99 names men saw her doctrinal Jana. Whoever establishes those names enters into paradise. The Scholars say I saw her main means how can you let her die be her? Well, I'm ILA beha. Three things

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

You memorize the name, you make do with the name and you act with the name. Again, here if you memorize it, too, you make dua with it, three, you act with it. These are the three rights and the three ways in which we honor a name of Allah subhanaw taala when we come across it And subhanAllah when you look at these names of Allah, there are so many names that are almost foreign to us. Right? And if you bring them into your DUA, they are so enriching. And you think about that with blood of the Allah Tala and who do you say subhanallah Bella Aleem Subhana labial Allah, how many times have you called upon Allah Allah lovely, how many have you called How many times have you called upon

00:05:47--> 00:06:26

Allah subhanaw taala and Allah and this is actually a great spiritual exercise to go through the names of Allah and to see which one of them's you have not made drought with and make your own specifically with that name. Spend some time with that name of Allah subhanaw taala read about it, establish it, memorize it, make do with it, and then you can establish a drought that stems from the name Yara Hamano honey, y'all go for it fairly Allahumma nica 412 Herbal alpha five for me so you can establish or most merciful Have mercy on me. Oh most forgiving. Forgive me. Oh, you who pardons you love to pardon so pardon me y'all Rosa. Oh you who sustains grant me risk. You call upon Allah

00:06:26--> 00:07:03

subhanaw taala with the names that simply extol him because remember dua is also thin out. It's just praise. Yah Majeed. Have we ever called upon Allah subhanaw taala al Majeed spent some time with that glorifying him. You're seeking guidance? Yah, ha d. O, Allah guide me. And so there's so much you can do with these names. Once you start to bring them into your DUA and you're become so rich Subhan Allah, your relationship to Allah becomes so much more personal. When you start to do that. And it's, it is a Ramadan assignment. If you do it with your family, you do it with your friends, you do it with your group, take a name of Allah subhanaw taala and say, How can I incorporate this

00:07:03--> 00:07:32

into my dua now to build on that inshallah to Allah and this is such a long topic, so I'm doing my best. But you also do to us to build a smart, mostly fat, you call upon Allah with his smart with his names and with his attributes. And the attributes, as the scholars mentioned, is a way in which you can further personalize how Allah is a Semir he's the All Hearing ones that get eonni has Salam says in Nikka semi or do

00:07:33--> 00:08:16

Oh you who forgive sins and you don't mind that comes from Allah for so every name of Allah has attributes embedded within it, that you can then extol be your enemy Calib what could erotica Allah Hulk, oh Allah by your knowledge of the Unseen and your power over all beings. So you say Oh Allah, Allah Aleem, oh Allah all knowing and then start to praise his knowledge subhanaw taala and the attributes of that knowledge that which is specific to you, Tyler math enough, see, you know what's inside of me, Oh Allah, start to personalize and by the way, you don't have to do that part in Arabic. Okay, so you

00:08:16--> 00:08:53

can as long as you're, you're saying things that are true of his attributes as we know it as is established from the Quran and the Sunnah. You don't have to make those from the Arabic language but look at the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you'll see he will he often does this sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I don't see you guys saying sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just talked about this two nights ago. So add to your DUA embellish your beautify your Allah says I gave them to you so you can make them out to me with them. So you could know me better and you could encounter me better and you could access me better and more meaningfully. So call upon Allah

00:08:53--> 00:09:33

subhanaw taala with his names, and then look to his attributes and spend some time with those attributes. And look how much richer your draft will be. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Rahman Rahim Allah for Allah dude Allah who may Allah subhanaw taala forgive us may Allah subhanaw taala shower us with His love may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to connect with Him through His names and his attributes.
