00:00:00--> 00:00:00

So agriculture

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

I would estimate I'm going to say quantity the spinoff amount Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen whatever Guan Ilana Vitamina la kiba to limits have been Allahumma salli wa sallam robotic radical silica Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while he was up to sell them to Seaman cathedra.

00:00:17--> 00:00:49

There's a word Subhan Allah that was repeated in two contacts within a few cards of each other. And that word is a very powerful word. It's panela it's amazing that sometimes when you hear about an idea, you hear about it separated from another idea, and you cannot fully value the power and the depth and the impact of that word. And the word is cutting close. Honey, so who can tell me where you heard it and shot lots on I'd like to hear where you heard it two places.

00:00:51--> 00:01:09

The first one was either Kariba Diani for iniquity. Subhanallah right after Ramadan. Allah subhanaw taala tells us about Ramadan. And when my servant asks you O Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam about me in the potty. I am near I'm close. There was another one, the five Can I answer?

00:01:11--> 00:01:11

What's up?

00:01:14--> 00:01:56

The Quran is not an English word. On display. You gotta have that Allah may Allah bless you. And in earnest Allah He Verily the help of ALLAH is close. It's near Subhanallah you hear the verses separated from each other but what is the wisdom of the proximity of these two verses? The first one well either Salah Kariba, the only for any party when my servant asks you Oh, Muhammad, so I said I'm about me than I am close. I am near. And the second one when things become so difficult and passivity and testicular Genoa my article method Alladhina Holloman public Masato Mobicip what Barbara was lucido Pattaya Pula Rasulullah Dena Amano Mara, Mata nostril la

00:01:58--> 00:02:39

masala he putting Allah says do you think you just enter into Jenna just like that? And then you hear the example of those that came before you and what they endured until the Prophets the messenger and the people that were with him said where is the help of Allah and Allah says Allah in the nostril lahi Karim, the help of ALLAH is close it is near now Subhanallah the wisdom that their intimate mention of this first verse in the party, I am close to you either, Sir Okay, buddy, I need for anybody. There's a few things number one, Allah subhanho wa Taala as he refers to the questions that come to the Prophet sallallahu It was said that it is common especially in these first few

00:02:39--> 00:03:17

suitors of the Quran. Because these sources in the Quran are almost chronological to the establishment of the surah in the Quran. In Medina, they almost parallel the seed of the prophets. I send them perfectly. Al Baqarah Bedell early AMRAAM starts to address the Earth reality and he saw those on so you're almost going 1234 The first few years of in Medina. And so there's a lot of guests Aluna they ask you, they ask you a prophet of Allah because now this is no longer just the reality of light Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, there is a constitution being established here. There are questions there is filled. There's a community that's being established, and they have

00:03:17--> 00:03:59

questions, the rulings of hijaab, the rulings of Alhambra, the rulings all of these rulings just I don't want to kiss anyone if they ask you, they ask you they ask you, but Allah subhana wa Tada. Always responds with pudsey, except in this ayah, Allah says in the Quran, I am close. Now you've got to think without the saints of that I am close, Allah responds directly i am close, you've got to think these were people who were immersed in a reality of thinking they can't access the divine except through idols. Subhan Allah, as the amount of sanity Rahim Allah says, Allah did not replace the idols with a messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam to serve the same function. But they're so

00:03:59--> 00:04:37

used to this idea that the Divine is inaccessible, except through the intermediary that they can't understand it right, that it's hard to, to really understand all the implications of Tawheed but Allah azza wa jal continues to give the implications of toe heat, and nothing more beautiful than in the body. Ask I am near either solitary body or need for any curry. Now, the scholars also mentioned of the beauty of this verse, And I'll probably cover the second part of it another time Inshallah, just to keep the short of the beauty of this verse of the beauty of this verse is that Allah could have answered it in multiple ways that you may have understood,

00:04:38--> 00:05:00

the most dominant implication of it in the same way. So for example, if the eye are red, and when my servant asks you about me, then I will answer him. That's one way. Allah azza wa jal could have also spoken about the Java spoken about the answer when your servant asks you about me that you

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

Java, the answer to their prayers is close. Why? Because some people, they lose hope and they're due at one time goes on. In fact, that's the majority of the reason when people make dua for something for a long time and it's not happening and the prophets Isom said, Allah will answer your eyes until you say, down to for doubt, fella, Mr. Jubliee. I kept making dua and Allah is not answering me. So Allah could have made the object the time, right? The Java is close. Allah also as amo Allah to Allah says Allah subhanho wa Taala could have done if birds of his of his route, he could have affirmed his presence, his presence, meaning what, when a servant asks than I am present, but you're

00:05:47--> 00:05:52

not questioning whether Allah is presence. You're questioning whether you have access to him.

00:05:53--> 00:06:17

And subhanAllah this verse, some of their intimate said is Elijah, if he Kitab Allah is the most hopeful verse in the book of Allah. Some of them said, Put the arriba the Alladhina Astra for Allah and foresee him not talk not to him and Rama Tila, the verse in Surah, Zuma that say, Oh, my servants who have transgressed against themselves do not despair of the mercy of Allah. They said, that's our Jai Fe kitab. Allah the most hopeful verse in the book of Allah. Some of them said, it's this verse, why?

00:06:18--> 00:06:54

Because when you know that you have direct access to Allah, at that point, any questioning about the timing of the answer any questions, any question about the the state that you are in in order to access him, all of that goes out of the window. If you are in a place where there is such a dominant authority, and you raise the issue to the authority, and that authority is so dominance at that point, if that authority says I've got it, you're like, Okay, I'm done. I'm done. Done.

00:06:55--> 00:07:06

What is it done? When you say Allahu Allah subhana, Allah accruable, Maya Coonan, Abdullah Rafi, the closest that you will be to Allah Institute.

00:07:07--> 00:07:49

All of you are making such the to Allah and you say, Oh Allah. And Allah says, I'm close. I'm not far away from you. I'm close. I hear you. I hear you. I know what you're asking me. I've got it. I hear you in the partnership. Subhan Allah and then Allah says boujee Buddha to dare either Dan. I answered the call of the caller when they call upon me. I'm close. 30 Yesterday Budi will you Minami La La homeo soon so let them answer me and let them believe in me so that they may find guidance in all of their affairs, inshallah Tada, we'll talk about that another time. We ask a lot of parents out to make us from those who do not despair from calling upon Allah subhana wa Tada, nor despair

00:07:49--> 00:08:00

from seeking Allah's pleasure, nor are deprived from the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala in this life or his pleasure in the next life alone, I mean, just a little Fado said I want to go to counseling accounts.
