All praises belong to Allah subhanho wa taala. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala and we seek his assistance subhanho wa Taala as well as his guidance, and we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evils of our souls and the adverse consequences of our deeds. Whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon the man can misguide him, and himself Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees misguidance upon them, none can guide him and peace and Salutations be upon the final messenger, Muhammad Ali Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship, besides one Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his slave and final

messenger, my dear brothers and Islam as Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh it gives me great pleasure to welcome you all to our series in the company of Allah, a series dedicated towards the study of the Beautiful Names of Allah subhanho wa taala. In this particular episode, I hope to Travis with you all through an introduction. That introduction which in sha Allah will make your mouth water even more and grow your desire to learn about the names of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:02:33--> 00:02:54

We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala for choosing us to be from amongst those that will spend our time together during the series, learning about the best of all knowledge, and indeed all praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala for every moment in our lives, and every moment

00:02:55--> 00:03:01

of learning, bestowed upon us by Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:02--> 00:03:42

Allah Who Melaka unhemmed Can I embody the JLL logic? What are the misophonic local Hemd had tadoba Well, I can have either of it, well I can have by the river indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is most deserving of the most beautiful of all praises, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make our time together, that time, which is beloved to him, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make the series of hours together, one which is considered an act of worship, for indeed we will not created except to worship Allah subhanho wa taala. But dear brothers and sisters to

00:03:44--> 00:03:56

introduce this introduction, before we take some of the names of Allah subhanho wa taala. I open it with a statement of the scholars. They say, shut off

00:03:58--> 00:04:59

Vishal Rafi, my alumi that we know how honorable the knowledge that is being learned is when we look at how honorable the subject matter is, a ponder over these words for a moment, we understand how honorable the subject is, or the knowledge being studied is when we look at how honorable the subject matter is. And when we learn about Allah subhanho wa Taala then indeed there can be no knowledge more beneficial, more honorable than this knowledge. For as Abraham Rahim Allah says, he says that the knowledge of Allah compared to the rest of knowledge is like Allah subhanho wa Taala in comparison to everything else created Allahu Akbar What a beautiful, eloquent statement, but it

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

will pay him

00:05:00--> 00:05:26

Rahim Allah indeed it deserves a repetition. It will tell you Brahim Allah says that the comparison of the knowledge which deals with Allah subhanho wa Taala and teaches us about Allah subhanho wa Taala in comparison to the rest of knowledge is like Allah subhanho wa Taala in comparison to the rest of creation.

00:05:27--> 00:06:26

He goes on to say, Rahim Allah, that there is no happiness, and no reformation and no completeness and no blessings, except by knowing Allah subhanho wa Taala and making our entire prerogative this particular endeavor, and even to me your Hema, Allah says that knowledge in its most complete form, knowledge, in its most complete form, is attained. When we acquire the two branches of knowledge, the two branches of knowledge, the first branch is knowing Allah Almighty subhanho, wa taala, and all about him, as taught to us by our fitrah, which is our natural disposition, as well as Revelation, as well as that taught to us by the prophets of Allah subhanho wa taala. So, the first

00:06:26--> 00:06:32

branch of knowledge is having knowledge of the legislator, Who is Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:06:33--> 00:06:36

While it's the second branch of knowledge, is

00:06:38--> 00:07:22

knowledge about what the legislator legislated, which is learning about the laws of Allah subhanho wa taala, the do's and the don'ts, everything that Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded us towards and warned us against and taught us through His revelation and taught us through His Messengers Allahi wa Salatu was Salam. And if we take a cursory look at society today, and the people that exist in society, we see that we can identify three groups of people, we can identify three groups of people, the first group is the group that

00:07:23--> 00:07:28

is filled with those who have knowledge about Allah,

00:07:29--> 00:07:30

but not about his loss.

00:07:32--> 00:08:28

Amazing. They know about Allah subhanahu itad They have knowledge about his names, his attributes, but they do not have knowledge about the or that which is considered legislative, they do not have knowledge about the laws of Allah subhanho wa to add. And then we have a second group and the second group is filled with those who are knowledgeable about Allah's laws, but they're not knowledgeable about Allah subhanho wa Taala they know about halal, they know about haram, but the knowledge of the legislator that legislated this Halal and Haram is lacking. And then we have a third group and this group is full of the most complete of people. And this group has those who are truly aroma who are

00:08:28--> 00:08:43

truly relevant. Those who know the legislated, they know halal, and they know haram and they know the one who legislated these laws, they know the legislator, Allah subhanho wa Taala This is an island

00:08:45--> 00:08:55

and many of us do not realize the true identity of an island. And that is why Imam Shafi Rahim Allah once

00:08:57--> 00:09:11

someone called out to him and said, Yeah, Allah, Oh Allah, and he became visibly upset. He became upset at the fact that this person called him an alien. And he responded to him and said,

00:09:13--> 00:09:21

Indeed, and irlam is the one who has the Hersha of Allah subhanho wa Taala Hersha. What is Hersha?

00:09:23--> 00:09:26

Some identify Hersha as fear.

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

But that's hope, hope in the Arabic language is fear. Russia is a level, a platform and a precedence much higher than the platform of health, which is raffia Harsha, oh servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam refers to fear, with knowledge, fear, with knowledge, and that is why Allah subhanho wa taala. In his book, he says, In NAMA, yah sha Allah Ha, minute Ribera de ellos

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

Lama Subhan Allah in nama. This in the Arabic language is known as, from a grammatical sense as added to hustle or from an expressive sense that to Hustler, meaning the

00:10:12--> 00:10:38

sentence is more eloquent, that we may perceive. Initially, God Almighty is not saying that the irlam have Kasha rather, he's saying that the only ones who have hatia Other Allameh to teach us that Hashem is fear with knowledge, where a person follows the laws of Allah subhanho wa taala, whilst knowing the evidence, that substantiates the act that they doing,

00:10:40--> 00:11:29

as well as knowing the one who legislated that particular legislation, and that is why the bed, the worship of the llama, have a far greater level than the worship of those that are not considered for lemma, that are not considered or lemma. It's natural, because the level of knowledge regarding the one who legislated and why he legislated and what he legislated is present when the act is being observed. And this brings about a level of contentment that cannot be found with a person that does not possess these types of knowledge. May Allah subhanho wa Taala increase our knowledge and may Allah subhanho wa Taala make the series of hours together.

00:11:30--> 00:12:21

And abundance series one, which truly increases our knowledge of the one who legislates for we Alhamdulillah know halal from haram. But we lack knowledge of the legislator Allah subhanho wa taala. So we brothers and sisters are swimming in higher we swimming in goodness and will swim in higher and will swim in goodness Insha Allah, our pious predecessors before us used to highlight time and time again and say that the first obligation, the first obligation that Allah subhanho wa Taala made an obligation was learning about Allah subhanho attack was knowledge about Allah subhana who were to add, as when the people the creation learned about Allah. They worshipped Him. When they

00:12:21--> 00:12:36

learned about Allah, they worshipped Him. And the statement of his Rahim Allah is not strange. For when we look in the book of Allah subhanahu wata Allah. We see Allah subhanho wa Taala saying, for LM and no La Ilaha illa Allah

00:12:37--> 00:12:45

Insha Allah, we'll take a quick break. And when we return, we'll discuss this particular is Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
