Episode Notes

Sh. Omar Suleiman discusses the power of making covenants with Allah swt through the prayer of Abdullah ibn Mas’oud, and the sincerity covenants can bring to your own du’a.
[ Day 3 Du’a ] اللهُمَّ فَاطِرَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ ، عَالمَ الغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ ، إِنِّي أَعْهَدُ إَلَيْكَ فِي هَذِهِ الحَيَاةِ الدُنْيَا : إِنَّكَ إِنْ تَكِلْنِي إِلَى نَفْسِيْ تُقَرِّبُنِي مِنْ الشَّرِّ ، وَتُبَاعِدُنِي مِنْ الخَيْرِ ، وَإِنِّي إِنْ أَثِقُ إِلَّا بِرَحْمَتِكَ فَاجْعَلْهُ لِي عِنْدَكَ عَهْدَاً تُؤَدِّهِ إِلَيَّ يَوْمَ القِيَامَةِ ، إِنَّكَ لَا تُخْلِفُ المِيْعَادَ
“O Allah, Originator of the heavens and earth, Knower of the seen and unseen, I testify in this worldly life of mine that if You leave me to myself, You are by that bringing my closer to harm and distancing me from good. I have no confidence except in Your mercy, so let that be a covenant that You deliver to me on the Day of Judgment — for You never break Your promises.”

So now I want to come back and start again. So everyone welcome back to prayers of the pious.

00:00:08--> 00:00:54

This is a deal that talks about the covenant that we make with the loss of hundreds and a few of the supplications or covenants that you actually make with Allah. Which obviously when you make a covenant with Allah, when you take an oath upon Allah, then it increases the severity and sometimes the sincerity of that particular supplication. So this is narrated by an S when he says that Abdullah bin Massoud or the Allahu taala, and who recited the verse eliminator for their endocrine Oneonta, except for he who has taken an oath with God or a covenant with Allah. And when he said that, I'm loving, Masaru little the love and who said that on the Day of Judgment. Allah will say,

00:00:55--> 00:01:22

men can Allah who are nd I had an earlier comb, whoever has a covenant with me, then let him stand. And so the students have the love and Masood, may Allah be pleased with him, they said, will teach us what to do with that. What do we say about that? What do we do? And so this is a situation where you actually have a Sahabi a companion, like even Massoud actually teaching his students what to say. So this this particular draft has

00:01:23--> 00:02:12

many blessings in that sense. He said kulu say a llama farm to Sunnah wa t when an email lady with Shahada, Allah Originator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of the seen and the unseen in our hadoo la coffee have even higher to dunya. I testify in this worldly life of mine, in nucca, into kidney Isla and FC to kalibo name in a shop, what to where you don't even know hire, that if you leave me to myself in this world, the life of mine, if you leave me to myself, you are by that bringing me closer to harm and distancing me from good. We're in the in ethical in love your romantica and I have no confidence except in your mercy. So he then converts it to the covenant to

00:02:12--> 00:02:54

the oath. So jalahalli are in the car accident to add the hida Yama, Yama, in Nikola Tesla for me. He said, so let that be a covenant that you deliver me on the Day of Judgment for you never break your promises. This is a powerful day out which isn't necessarily this teaching his his students and you know, a few years ago I did a series on people of the poor and one of the things about the Koran is how do you interact with those verses? You have a man here who the Prophet peace be upon him said whoever wants to hear the Koran love them party and come out when's it fresh, as if it was just recited? Then let him listen to the good Ah, the recitation of him was a little the love on who and

00:02:54--> 00:03:34

this is how he's interacting with this particular verse in this particular idea of taking a covenant with the loss of Hannah Montana. One of the things that we learn about Allah is that Allah subhanho wa Taala is too shy to turn away the hands of his sincere servants. And so when you call upon Allah and you say, oh, Allah, you never break your promises. You promised us mercy. So show us mercy. You promise that if we do this, that you will do that. It's a very beautiful and powerful way to engage your club to engage your Lord to engage your sustainer a Lord that loves to forgive a Lord that loves to pardon a Lord that loves to show mercy. And so this is a beautiful way of doing just that.

00:03:35--> 00:03:58

May Allah subhanahu wa tada Deliver us on the Day of Judgment with his mercy, as he promised us that if we believe and we turn to Him, and we OBEY Him to the best of our ability that he will deliver us with His mercy May Allah subhanaw taala Deliver us with His mercy and allow us to enter into the gardens of Felicity allama. Amin was talking last night on Shahla. See you next time we'll send out money to Latin America.
