Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah who Allah Allah He was a happy woman while at salaam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh welcome everybody back. Alhamdulillah just before the break we discussed an important area where Allah subhanahu wata, LSAS for LM and who La Ilaha illa Allah and this I, I cited for you all to substantiate a statement of a great Imam before us Rahima hula Imam Bobby Rahim Allah. He said that the first obligation that God Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala placed upon his creation was the obligation of learning about Allah. Why this obligation? Because when the creation learned about the Creator,

00:00:57--> 00:01:02

they worshipped him. Thus Allah subhanho wa Taala is fairly and no

00:01:03--> 00:01:12

La Ilaha illa Allah that there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is clearly

00:01:13--> 00:02:03

mentioned manifests the correctness of Imam Al Shabaab his statement and once again we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make our series together, a means of bettering our worship. She accepted the Rahim Allah the famous author of a famous, concise Tafseer. He says Rahim Allah, that the knowledge of Allah Almighty his attributes and names is inclusive of the knowledge of Tawheed. And its branches dito hadal Lahiya and the Tauheed Rubia. And the toe he'd have the names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa taala. We have the unity of Allah's Lordship, and we have the unity in terms of Allah's worship, and the unity in terms of Allah's names and his attributes. So Shaka Saturday,

00:02:04--> 00:02:22

Allah says, that when we learn about Allah subhanho wa taala, and especially his names and attributes, then we need to understand that these attributes are inclusive of Tawheed and its branches, and that the more one lens, the more belief increases. So all these

00:02:23--> 00:02:31

complement the statement of Immanuel Hapa be Rahim Allah, even though he or him Allah says that if Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:02:33--> 00:03:21

Now, this is an amazing statement, and it should make us feel special. Right? He says, if Allah subhanho wa Taala was good for his slave, what's good for his servant, once good for yourself and myself, then Allah opens his slaves heart, towards accepting His names and attributes, and towards learning more about them. Subhan Allah, and this tells us that different people have different levels of understanding with regards to the names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa taala, they may know a name, such as allele, for example, this is from the names of Allah subhanho wa taala. But the level of understanding this name allele differs from person to person. And the statement of

00:03:21--> 00:04:11

Abraham Rahula makes this clearly manifest that when Allah wants good for his slave, he opens his heart towards accepting the names and attributes first and foremost, and then increasing his slaves understanding of these names may Allah subhanho wa taala, open our hearts, I mean, also, the more we know of someone's qualities, and this is just bringing the discussion closer to our minds, brothers and sisters, we know that sometimes we have a person or all the time, right? With regards to anybody, we love them. We like them, and we dislike them based on our knowledge of them. Right? A spouse can love a spouse, but that love increases as they live with each other. And they discover

00:04:12--> 00:04:58

the wonderful qualities that were not known prior. Right? This naturally breeds more love for one spouse. The same goes with friends, right? The same goes with a teacher, when the teacher learns more about his or her fellow students. By default, naturally, a teacher begins loving a student, a particular student slightly more than the others. This doesn't mean that the teacher should be unjust and favor the student but rather this is a natural happening that occurs within the self. The more we learn about somebody else, naturally, we begin loving them, naturally we begin liking them right and as the scholars cite these particular feelings, they say that these are from the feelings

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

known as n o SOF l

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

Believe it, or software, you believe these are those feelings that you and I do not have control over. Right? A person can be an enemy to another person, but that person can be nice to us. And we might be friends with this person that dislikes them. But naturally, we like this person. Why? Because they're nice to us. Right, irrespective of the issue between that person who's nice to us, and our friend who dislikes them. Right. Irrespective of that, if this person is nice to us, by default, we naturally feel a warm inclination towards them, these are feelings we did not have control over. Right. So in the same way, the more we learn about Allah subhanho wa taala, naturally,

00:05:42--> 00:06:33

we begin loving Allah subhanho wa taala, much more. And this naturally increases our focus in worship, and our love to worship, and it increases the quality of our worship. Allah subhanho wa taala. Grant us this understanding, and that is why that is why we can deduce from this discussion that our worships potential is proportional to the depth of our knowledge about the one that we worship. Right? I want you to digest this particular statement, our worship, our rabada, our worships potential, its potential to be great, its potential to be magnanimous, its potential to stop being mediocre, is proportional to our knowledge of the one being worshipped. And I've

00:06:33--> 00:07:28

contemplated this many a time, over several minutes, and several hours, and several weeks, and several months, I've contemplated this point that what stops a person's worship, passing a particular threshold, we perform our salah, and we desire this who Sure. And we've tried everything. And this whole concept of being content and being focusing our worship, which is not getting there. What is the main factor lacking? What is preventing us from crossing that threshold? And the answer that I was inspired to feel was that it is our lack of knowledge of the one being worshipped. If we fix that, if we increase our knowledge of the one big worship than this, by default will open the

00:07:28--> 00:08:10

floodgates. It will allow us to cross that potential. It will allow us to take our worship to a whole new level, we will need to be convinced to fast, we will need to be convinced to give sadaqa and charity. So and this is something I want each and every one of us to try. Right when we start taking these names. Ask yourself, ask yourself, How can this particular name make me a better person? How can it be for my character number one, number two, how can it matter in terms of my relationship with Allah subhanho wa Tada I don't want our time together, or your time spent learning about Allah subhanho wa Taala and a B during the series, or a series in your local masjid, or a

00:08:10--> 00:08:58

series online to focus only on the semantics the semantics is important, but in its sphere, and scope, what's more important is how that knowledge developed us how that knowledge allowed us to grow, how that knowledge nurtured us and sadly today, when we look at discussion surrounding the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala we see it being shared and spoken about in a very technical manner, not in a manner that breeds better progress in terms of character development, in terms of self development, in terms of growing our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala how many of us speak about Allah subhanho wa taala. But we sleep when

00:08:58--> 00:09:03

Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah is at the lowest heaven, calling to us.

00:09:04--> 00:09:09

Asking us Is there something that you need, that I may give you

00:09:10--> 00:09:18

is the forgiveness that you seek, so that I may forgive you? Is there a repentance that is upon you,

00:09:19--> 00:10:00

and you repenting, that I may accept your repentance? Allah subhanho wa taala, who's a summit and in sha Allah if Allah wills we will discuss this name in our series, who's totally independent, everything in creation is dependent on Allah subhanho wa taala. Even that leaf in the tree that Shiva is in the darkness of the light. This shivering of this leaf only happens by the will of Allah subhanahu wata, it's dependent on Allah subhanho wa Taala his will and decree for it to Shiva, this it shivers this Allah subhanho wa Taala comes to the lowest

00:10:00--> 00:10:51

heaven when He doesn't need us, and we are totally dependent, totally dependent on Allah subhanho wa Taala yet yet, we are in a restful slumber. So how did this name a summit? Grow us? developers make us better people. These are the critical questions I want us to ask every time we learn about Allah subhanho wa taala. And I did say that this introduction is designed to make our mouth water and grow our desire to learn about the legislator of everything legislated to learn about the King of kings, to learn about the Lord of the Worlds. Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us Jenna, just for participating in the series or participating in any program dedicated

00:10:52--> 00:11:00

towards the study of Allah subhanho wa Taala has wonderful names and attributes. But dear brothers and sisters,

00:11:02--> 00:11:34

Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about his most beautiful names and his most beautiful attributes in his book, the Quran, the final testament, the revelation, which is the best of revelations, unchanged, and preserved until the day of the best revelation, which he gave to the best Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam via the best Angel Jibreel Allah He Salah

00:11:36--> 00:11:55

in the best language, the Arabic language in the best night, Laila to further the Night of Power during the best month, the month of Ramadan in the best place, mocha and mocha Maka, Rama in this book, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned in four places

00:11:56--> 00:12:24

that he has beautiful names and beautiful attributes and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to preserve us in His obedience and grant us life to return to our next episode, where we will discuss these if we lie to Allah and talk about Allah subhanho wa Taala has beautiful names and attributes. I love you all for the sake of Allah. I thoroughly enjoyed our time together until next time as Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi
