parents We begin by praising Allah subhana wa tada and bearing witness that no one has the right to be worshipped or unconditionally obeyed except for him. And we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as his final messenger We ask Allah to send his peace and blessings upon him, the prophets and messengers that came before him, his family and companions that served alongside him, and those that follow in his blesseth path until the day of judgment and we ask Allah to make us amongst them Allah I mean, your brothers and sisters, in today's hope, but I want to address actually something that personally gave me some pause.

00:02:05--> 00:02:16

And that sometimes we take for granted when Allah responds to us with how he is going to reward us what exactly that means. Now if I was to tell you

00:02:18--> 00:03:03

an idea or a hadith from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam where the reward of such an act is a whole fear Allah who matter but the momentum behind everything that you have done before is forgiven, it is understood what that means. If I was to tell you that whoever son Salaam on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Allah how I'm gonna get to who you saw Luna Allah Nabi Allah and His angels send their prayers upon the messenger sallallahu wasallam Yo, yo holla Deena amanu solid Luana. He was standing with us Lima, where Allah commands you, oh, you who believe send your prayers upon him and send your Salaam to him. If I was to tell you that the Prophet sallallahu

00:03:03--> 00:03:52

alayhi wa sallam responds with Salaam as we know from the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what that precisely means that every single time you send salah and Salaam upon him sallallahu wasallam an angel informs him and he responds to you by name, it is very clear it is very explicit. If I was to tell you, as we get into the last two nights of Ramadan, when we remind ourselves of a dragon that should be made throughout the year, Allah inika Alpha one two hibel alpha forany Allah you are the one who forgives who pardons you love to pardon so pardon me, forgive me. It's very clear what that means. But if I was to ask you, what does it mean when Allah son Salah

00:03:52--> 00:03:54

upon you? What does that even mean?

00:03:55--> 00:04:44

Would anyone be able to answer except with something that is abstract or ambiguous? Because it just sounds so different. How does Allah stand Salah upon me? In fact, how does Allah sense Allah upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam What does it mean to say Allah sends Salah sends his prayers upon someone and that's what I want to stick with for today's footman shot let's address so that the next time you hear the reward of Allah sending Salam upon you, you know exactly what that means and how to connect it and inshallah to add a long for it and aspire towards it. Now why now because last week we spoke about in Nadella he were in LA he Roger on the beautiful words to allow we belong and

00:04:44--> 00:04:51

to Allah we return, the reward of which is Allah He Cali him follow atom lobby him more often. While

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

doing that verily those people who say to Allah we belong and to Allah we return as soon as a tragedy strikes.

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

them upon them is the prayer of their Lord. And it should not be lost upon us the way that Allah has personalize this, as this is a form of tissue relief. This is a form of making the recipient of this reward more noble of honoring that person that upon them is the prayer of their Lord and His mercy. What Allah eco Mata doing and they are the ones who are rightly guided on what are the Allah tala and has since we've been in his sila. It's only fitting that we mentioned his Tafseer his explanation of this verse when he would read this verse all the time, he would say Nirmal agilon, whenever matilija

00:05:42--> 00:06:04

that how bless it is the compensation for the first two. And how blessing is the prize, the extra form of elevation that comes at the end of this verse, he says, As for adland, the two forms of compensation that Allah mentions here for a person that says in Allah, He will not lay here Raji rune, he said, that it is our Salah what

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

Allah is prayer upon the person and Allah has mercy upon the person he says ask for Lila he said but the gold here, the price the extra form of elevation, he says that is El hidayah. That is the guidance that Allah subhanaw taala promises Why? Because if Allah guides you then that means Allah will enter you into paradise.

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

Right so in very, you know, in many places in the Quran, where Allah mentions in Medina who Sabine we have guided them to the two paths. As an apostle the law of Thailand from I will mention that that means the path of guidance and the destination of guidance which is paradise. It carries a double meaning when Allah speaks about guidance as a form of reward, it carries a double meaning that you are blessed to have guidance in this life because you live a life of meaning and purpose. And the greater blessing is that the destination of guidance is paradise. May Allah subhanaw taala make us from the inhabitants agenda to fit a dose Allah mean. Now, in this specific context, sola

00:07:07--> 00:07:51

means something very specific and that is a mafia that is His forgiveness. And we actually take this from a hadith where the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was, was receiving the Saba receiving the charity of various people. And I'd love to be ofa all the time I'm Houma. He says that when people would come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would say to them as they brought their sadaqa to him, he would say Allah homophone leoric How amazing would it be to hear that from the Prophet slice of them, the profit slice on him would say, may Allah sense Allah upon you, that was the way that he would receive people, when they would bring their sub account to him. So Allah

00:07:51--> 00:08:35

Hardy, he was selling, we can't hear him say it to us, but that is a reward as well that Allah senses Salah upon us. And the prophets lie Some said so late to Allah yashraj that I sense a lot upon that person as well. So here, I'm the love of the ofa. He says that when my father came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I remember him saying Allah muslin Leanna, early Abbey opha Oh Allah send your prayers upon the family of the ofa. And so the particular meaning here is forgiveness, the forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Likewise, when we recite in the end of the night, the last two verses of certain bacara wonderful was Elena or Hamner.

00:08:36--> 00:09:23

Wife Wanda was literally Filipina what Hamner okay? If you think about it, the order of is actually what Rama is mercy forgiveness is that everything is as a result of Allah casting his mercy upon you. Forgiveness means that the sins no longer exists a laffel is that you are fully pardoned that you now enjoy the reward, post forgiveness. So there is a degree here between forgiveness and mercy and so here in this verse, Allah He can lay him Salawat on the lobby him while Rama that Verily Allah gives you His forgiveness and his mercy is the response to in Nadella he went in LA Roger. Now that's the specific meaning in this verse. However, when it comes to a salon in general, when Allah

00:09:23--> 00:09:55

son Salah upon you, it carries multiple meanings that also encapsulate this one of the things that we learn is that as we send Salah on the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, Allah preys upon us, the angels prey upon us the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam preys upon us. So we already established what that means for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as for the angels Allah so just as the cat the son allottee gets a problem and fell to him well Mila you can see yourself behind the behind the lobby him or your selfie room nearly man fill

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

in Allah for Rahim that the heavens almost created

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

above them. And the angels exalt Allah with praise, and they ask forgiveness for those on earth. And of course the law says that the angels What did they do as they roam around the throne of God, your stuff your own alladhina amanu Subhana Allah, what an amazing creation. They roam around the throne of God seeking forgiveness for those who believe. They're saying Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah forgive that person, Allah forgive that person, Allah, forgive that person. And so the Salah of the angels is specifically one of forgiveness, one of the angels seeking forgiveness for us. So that's understood. When it comes to Allah.

00:10:44--> 00:11:10

Allah preying upon you is unlike any other creation preying upon you sending Salah upon you. It's completely different Because ultimately, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prays, who does he pray to? Allah, when the angels seek forgiveness, who are they seeking forgiveness from Allah, they're seeking forgiveness for us from Allah but they're praying to Allah, but when the prophets of Allah subhana wa tada himself

00:11:12--> 00:11:14

has this attribute of Salah

00:11:15--> 00:11:58

there's something very special about that. And it actually combines all the meanings in the most beautiful of ways. Number one, how amazing is it to have a lot even mention your name to the inhabitants of the heavens. So the most general meaning of the Salah of Allah upon his creation is a Vic with center filled mela Illa Allah that Allah mentions you in the highest heavens. Your name in a conversation between Allah and God, Daddy, his Salah. How incredible is that? Allah telling God rotti his Salaam By the way, I want you to know who I love that person in the bufala I just want you to know I love that person. How much do you want to be the name that Allah is mentioning to who it

00:11:58--> 00:12:18

is Salaam. And then gibreel shouting out to all of the angels in the heavens. In Allah you have befallen Allah loves this person. Just the thought of it right the thought that my name is being mentioned up there. You know, people want to see their names on plaques. People want to see their names engraved in certain places to have your name

00:12:19--> 00:12:46

being mentioned by a lot of debris Ronnie ceram and then debris is mentioning to me to Eden is Salafi than all of the angels and all of the prophets because the inhabitants of the heavens includes all of those who have ascended thus far. reciting his Salaam musante sam they're all hearing your name being praised through the heavens. How amazing is that right. and obey give no capital the alongside and when the famous incident where the prophets lie some told obaidul the Allahu

00:12:47--> 00:12:50

Allah has commanded me to recite certain bayona to you

00:12:51--> 00:13:31

and obey started to cry and he said Yasuda Allah some money. You mean Allah said obey, that Allah just tell you recite to the next person that walks in, that Allah tell you recite to one of your companions, or did Allah say it Kra Allah obey, read to obey because Allah mentioning my name is special. He mentioned me Yes, he mentioned you and obey Allah tala animals as as if he forgot everything. So that's the special thing, right? Allah mentioning you in a praiseworthy way, amongst the inhabitants of the heavens. Now let's connect it all together and shout out to Adam, as we go into the last or the first 10 days of the hedgerow and the prize of the first 10 days of the hedge

00:13:31--> 00:13:32

of being out of

00:13:34--> 00:13:36

the greatest way that Allah can mention you.

00:13:37--> 00:13:43

In the presence of the inhabitants of the heavens, is in the capacity of forgiveness.

00:13:44--> 00:13:49

When Allah announces to the heavens, I have forgiven this person.

00:13:50--> 00:14:13

There is nothing greater than that. Because you know, if Allah praises you, it could be that the praise is limited to a praiseworthy deed that you did. Right? It's beautiful. But there's still something limited about it in terms of the what it covers. But when Allah announces to the heavens that he has forgiven you, that means that you are forgiven.

00:14:15--> 00:14:20

And remember, no we owe him Allah to Allah explains, there is nothing after that.

00:14:21--> 00:14:59

Like when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah looked at the veterans of beddit. And Allah says, it may be that I have forgiven them for everything that they've done before and everything after that when Allah announces your amnesty, your forgiveness to the heavens, that's it. And if you think about the Day of Judgment, what is the moment that you longed for? You know, there's the moment of meeting Allah and Allah subhana wa Tada, putting you at ease. May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst them. For example, Allah subhana wa tada saying to us as some of those secret sins that we struggled with, we didn't boast about we weren't proud of them.

00:15:00--> 00:15:36

But we struggled and we were trying but ultimately we fell short and Allah puts a hijab, a veil between you and everyone else and says, Come here, come close, and starts to mention some of those sins to you. And then Allah says, I want you to know that I concealed them for you in the dunya. And I'm forgiving you for them. Now. They're done. Don't worry about them. No one's ever gonna hear about these sins, nor will you be confronted with them amazing. Allah subhanho wa Taala, reminding you of your good deeds on the Day of Judgment, can you imagine Allah telling you about your good deeds on the day of judgment? That's amazing. It's very comforting. It's very beautiful and najwa

00:15:36--> 00:15:54

the secret conversation between you and Allah. That's why I'm the loving on model the law of Thailand, whom I mentioned when, as everyone is standing there, and they're being called, from the creation to stand in front of Allah, and you're speaking to Allah to the exclusion of everyone else that's special. It's beautiful.

00:15:55--> 00:16:30

But when Allah subhana wa tada gives you your book in your right hands, that's the real celebration, right? Because that means I made it. That means I'm not going to be held accountable for my sins at this point. And that's when the person takes the book and goes around running to everyone and saying, How omokoroa Okeechobee everyone go ahead and read my book. Here's my book of good deeds. Here's my prayer. Here's my charity. Here's that time that I showed honesty and it was not returned. Here's that time I showed ersan to Allah's creation. Here's that time that I did this secret good deed and this secret good deed Here it is. Here it is everyone you're celebrating at that point.

00:16:30--> 00:16:33

That's the moment of celebration because up until that point,

00:16:34--> 00:16:59

I don't know. There's there's still an anxiety of sorts, but that is the point where you celebrate now as we get into alpha, what does the Salah of Allah mean upon you read this hadith differently now, when jab at all the Allahu taala and who says that on the day of alpha either can a young modify in Allah yanzhou Isla Santa Jr. For Yuba he became one manner.

00:17:00--> 00:17:09

On the day of alpha Allah descends to the lowest heaven in a way that fits him. And Allah boasts to the angels about his creation. Look at these people.

00:17:10--> 00:17:27

Look at these people. Look at the making drought. Look at their struggles. envoy Isla Abadi Subhanallah like Allah is attributing the servants to himself which is again the greatest form of touch leaf the greatest form of honoring them, look at them

00:17:28--> 00:17:32

are not the angels they're about Allah subhana wa Tada. Of course they are but look at these

00:17:33--> 00:17:48

dusty, disheveled, tired, exhausted but they are making darat consistently. And what is the ultimate price yamaneika Oh my angels was he to come and knee Cordova for Tula home.

00:17:49--> 00:18:26

I want you all to bear witness that I forgiven them. That's Allah, Allah upon you. I want all of you angels to bear witness that these people they're forgiven. I've I've given them amnesty. Now what are the angels do? in general? You're stuck. They don't alladhina amanu right. They see forgiveness for those who believe. But even then the angels say yeah, Rob, but yeah, Allah falon can you rock waffleh waffleh but this person this person did this and this person did that. Just like when you come to the majority of the code of the places of remembrance, but yeah, Oh Allah, that person was insincere. They just came because their friend was coming to the house and they just did this and

00:18:26--> 00:18:33

you're gonna forgive them. And Allah Subhana Allah, Allah says, Allah follow to that home case close I forgave them

00:18:34--> 00:18:39

because they're in a righteous gathering. There's something about them that's enough for me to forgive them.

00:18:40--> 00:18:42

And so the next time you hear

00:18:43--> 00:18:45

him solo out in the lobby him

00:18:46--> 00:19:23

the next time you say someone love it, he was selling them. And you imagine the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, returning Salaam to you. And you imagine the angels seeking forgiveness for you as a result of that. The great price is when Allah mentions your name to the angels and the highest heavens, and particularly mentions your name in the capacity of forgiveness. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us for all of our sins, those which we have done in the past and those in the present and those which we will undoubtedly commit in the future. May Allah forgive us for what we conceal and what we make public. May Allah forgive us, for that which is minor, and that which is major, may

00:19:23--> 00:19:40

Allah subhanaw taala not allow us to stain ourselves with insistence upon that which is displeasing to Him. May Allah subhanaw taala remove all of that which makes us not praiseworthy in his sights elevate us along I mean, Apollo calahonda was suffered a lot he will accompany certain Muslim investors who don't know how to
