The Prophets lie Selim describes to us the moment on the day of judgment where he will fall on his face and he will pray to Allah in the most consequential day

00:00:11--> 00:00:49

in the history of mankind, and he says, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that in this great moment of intercession that I will fall face first and Allah will inspire me with Muhammad with words of Hemd words of praise, that I don't even know right now. Subhan Allah think about the Prophet sallallahu sallam, with his face on the ground and Allah giving him the best way to praise him Subhana Allah to Allah for the benefit of all of his creation. The beauty of this concept of Hemd Muhammad words of praise Alhamdulillah is that it is the most natural form of drought and it's the most open ended.

00:00:51--> 00:00:52

Al Hamdulillah.

00:00:57--> 00:01:33

And so a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam and said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, ya rasool Allah, I have praised my lord with some of these Muhammad with some words of praise. And then I just let my dear i go wherever it went, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in Rebecca, you had will hand your Lord loves praise. And so when a person starts to make their app, they can say Alhamdulillah, they can praise Allah. And then they can mention any of his names and attributes that they want. They can mention any of the favors of Allah, they can mention any of the specific blessings that they want to mention or something that they want

00:01:33--> 00:02:16

more of. The point is, you really can't go wrong with this thicket, and then using this thicket to propel your career forward Alhamdulillah for who you are, Al Hamdulillah for what you have given me Alhamdulillah for anything that I'm even asking you for. And we find that the angels they struggle to record just like they struggled to record test to be the weight of this attempt. And the prophets of Allah Hardy was tell them one time while He was praying, he heard a man behind him say or bene were little hemmed Hamden Cathy run by uban mobile rockin fi Oh Allah to you belongs all praise Hamden Kathy Iran plentiful play uban pure mobile era can fi that is blessing and abundance and in

00:02:16--> 00:03:00

one narration Al Hamdulillah hum them to theater on tube and mobile can fi mobile era can la Kemah you Hibou Rabona welder like Our Lord loves and is pleased with and also allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, who said that? When we were rising from the ROCOR and when the man was identified, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I saw 30 angels that were rushing to try to capture your praise and take it back to Allah subhana wa Tada. So now what's the difference and how are to be and to meet complementary to one another? And half of the big cathedral Hema Allah he says that to be saying Subhan Allah is to affirm Allah has freedom from any ape or Knucks from any flaw or

00:03:00--> 00:03:43

deficiency, and then to meet is to praise Allah for his perfection and for His grace. And together these are the two of God that fill the Mazon they fill the scale on the day of judgment and they fill what is between the heavens and the earth and Allah connects them together when he says festival Han Allah He Hina tomb Sunnah wa Hina to spoon wala hula hamdu for some hour it will. So declare the perfection of Allah when you wake up and when you retire in the evening, and his praise fills the heavens and the earth. Now, what does it mean to praise Allah? What is the deeper meaning of Alhamdulillah you see the word Hamed is comprehensive and this is from the Mercy of Allah that He

00:03:43--> 00:04:28

gives us comprehensive ways that we can praise Him. The word haven't combines both as the scholars say sunnah and sugarcoat, praise and gratitude. So you're not just praising Allah, you're not just thanking Allah, but you're doing both with the single word. And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, because he is who he is, does not actually need anyone to praise him, for him to be praiseworthy. He is Aziz al Hamid, he is the one who is almighty whether you acknowledge his might or not, and he is all praiseworthy, whether you praise him or not, and we even see that beauty in the Quran itself and certain Fatiha that the first one to praise Allah in the Quran is himself. Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil

00:04:28--> 00:05:00

Alameen Allah's word starts with the hemp of Allah, the praise of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah Himself. And this praise is different from what's known in the Arabic language as an mme and mother, as a scholar say it could be praised, but it doesn't necessarily have embedded in that praise, Love and Honor. Hemant is as the scholars say, a thinner Bill Jamil al Jamil Allah watch him habit he will tell me it is beautiful preys upon one who is beautiful and it has embedded with

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

In it love and glory and so it's a very special way that you speak to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Subhan Allah He won't be handy. Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in US dollar euro Alhamdulillah wa for avec la ilaha illa Allah, that the best euro is that hamdulillah and the best vicar is La ilaha illAllah. So Hammond actually plays the role of being both of the greatest forms of wicked remembrance but also being a giraffe in and of itself. Why because you are praising Allah subhanho wa Taala without actually asking him for anything and so you give this deer and hamdulillah and that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a DUA, he said that this is the most

00:05:42--> 00:06:25

superior of the supplications he said so Allah who it was salam in Allah has stuffer Meenal, Konami Allah, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen amongst all words, four words four phrases Subhan Allah Alhamdulillah La Ilaha illa Allah Allahu Akbar. Now he says in this long Hadith sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that whoever says Subhan, Allah, Allah subhanho To Allah writes down 20 good deeds for them and whoever says La Ilaha illa Allah, Allah writes down 20 good deeds and whoever says Allahu Akbar, Allah writes down 20 Good deeds, and with all of those, he also removes 20 cents, so 20 good deeds and 20 cents. But then he says, Whoever says Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen mean,

00:06:25--> 00:07:08

cleverly enough, see, he says Al Hamdulillah, from themselves, meaning just says Alhamdulillah by itself, then Allah subhanaw taala writes down 30 good deeds and removes 30 cents. So it hamdulillah is a form of vicar and it's a form of your app, and the Prophet slice and I'm says In another Hadith, no one says Alhamdulillah, for a blessing that has been given to them, except that what you gave is better than what you were given, meaning what the blessing that was given to you for which you're saying and hamdulillah is not as great of a blessing as the Al Hamdulillah that you gave, because the blessing that is going to come about because of your saying that hamdulillah is greater

00:07:08--> 00:07:47

than the one that led you to praise him in the first place. So how do we use this vicar on a daily basis number one, just like just be you say it 33 times after your Salah. So Subhan, Allah and hamdulillah will both be 33 times, you also will say 100 times a day at least. And you can combine that with your test to be so you could do your test to be in your to meet together. But you'll notice that Alhamdulillah is ingrained in us in such a way that when we recognize a blessing, we immediately say Alhamdulillah and the first blessing you recognize is the one that you wake up to. Meaning the very fact that you have woken up the prophets lie Selim said that when a person wakes

00:07:47--> 00:08:31

up, they say Alhamdulillah Allah, the IANA burden, a mountain away Lee in a short, you thank Allah for giving you life after death, and to Him as the ultimate return. And so any blessing that comes to you throughout the day, you have already started a relationship with Allah with your entire day that just by breathing that day, you're saying hamdulillah So what then when you eat the prophets, Allah, Allah, Allah has taught us to say Alhamdulillah after we eat our food, but he said specifically sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that whoever eats and says Alhamdulillah Hilarie automne ha That was acne, human lady, holy Mini malaco All praises and thanks be to the one who fed this to

00:08:31--> 00:09:09

me, and provided it to me without any strength or any capacity of my own. He said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam low fear Allah homematic At the moment MB, Allah will forgive all of your sins. He said the same thing sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when it comes to your getting dressed, you know, how often do we thank Allah for the clothes we put on every single day? And he said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that whoever wears their clothes, they take a new garment they put it on and they say Alhamdulillah Allah de Cassani how the soap mean lady how them in new hola como. All praises and thanks be to Allah, who provided this soap for me without any power, any strength, any capacity of

00:09:09--> 00:09:48

my own. He said sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, love your Allahumma Takata Melinda me, Allah will forgive all of your sins. when anything happens to you of good you thank Allah for the blessing of hardship and hamdulillah Allah colohan, you thank Allah for all things even in hardship, when you sneeze, the prophet slice and I'm taught that when you sneeze you say hamdulillah and that if a person does not praise Allah when they sneeze, and the shaytaan mocks them. Now if this is how it is in this dunya, where despite the imperfections of the blessings that you have here, you still think Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and you still say Alhamdulillah naturally, imagine your sentiment when

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

you enter into Janna and you eat the food there, or when you wear the clothes there. And so it's a natural extension of your goodness here, that you continue to give praise to Allah subhanaw taala

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

And it's a natural extension of Allah's excellence that he continues to give you more and more and more and more every time you thank Him for what you already have

00:10:10--> 00:10:37
