Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah. While early he was happy he urged me in a bad day of View As salam o alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh I welcome you all to yet another episode in our series in the company of Allah subhanahu wata Allah. All praises belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we seek Allah subhanahu wata Ella's assistance, and we seek His guidance subhanho wa Taala and we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala from the evils of ourselves and the adverse consequences of our deeds. himself Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon the nun can misguide him, and whomsoever Allah
subhanho wa Taala decrees misguidance upon then then can guide him
and peace and Salutations be upon the final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship. Besides one Allah, He indeed is the Creator. He indeed is the sustainer he indeed is the Nourisher he indeed is the maker, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala he is independent, whilst everything in creation is dependent on him SubhanaHu wa Tada. And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his final messenger. My dear brothers and sisters. In our last episode, we began traversing through an introduction that I've put together for you all, with the intention of wetting your taste buds to
have a stronger desire to learn about Allah Almighty's wonderful names and attributes. And I want to share with you something, again, just for those who might have missed the previous session.
It's something that we said towards the end of the previous session, and that is that I want us to change our whole ideology, when it comes to learning. God Almighty is wonderful names and attributes. And I want us to go beyond the semantics of the knowledge. And I want us to allow the knowledge to nurture us to develop us to grow our character, to grow ourselves, whenever we learn about the name of Allah subhanho wa taala. It must have a profound meaning in our life, right? We should never be people who traverse through life just existing, for we were created to live in this life, and living comes with its parcels and its packages. And God Almighty revealed revelation, and
he sent prophets to allow us to live in a substantial manner, to live in a way that's better for our life in this world. And the next
I just like to share with you something also that I was told.
And this is something that indeed, requires us to ponder over. And something that requires action from us. Right? So somebody just told me that a survey was once done in a masjid. And people were asked to name the names of Allah subhanho wa taala, our Creator, the King of kings, the Lord of the Worlds, and many people could not name more than 10 names and those who could not, or those who could play more than 10 could not pass 15 names Subhanallah Subhanallah, right. And this should be a wake up call for each and every one of us and I would like you all right at the end of this episode to take a paper, take a pen and jot down how many names of Allah subhanho wa taala. You know, right
make that your own personal effort to understand yourself and perhaps it will be a platform for you to launch yourself from and you learned realization so you launch yourself from that platform, and you go on learning about Allah subhanho wa Taala we took in our last episode, many statements from the pious before us, who taught us that our worship becomes better and the quality of our worship increases. The more we learn about God Almighty may Allah subhanho wa Taala inspires us to become more knowledgeable of him SubhanaHu wata and Amin, amin, brothers and sisters in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Subhan
who Allah mentions himself having beautiful names and attributes in four places we have in Surah two are off in the i 180. Allah subhanho wa Taala telling us that he has beautiful names. Allah subhanho wa Taala says when he lay he'll Esma or husana Federico who be here, whether levena You're doing a fee asthma. So you zone America and we are in Milan.
And then when we look at Surah, two Issara Isaiah 110, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, co-leader Allah Ha, a widow ramen, a method the fella who USMA All
right, Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us to call unto him using the name of Allah and using the name of ramen and to supplicate and ask from Allah subhanho wa Taala using these names and Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in this ayah that Allah subhanho wa Taala has beautiful names. The third place in the Quran where Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions him having beautiful names is in the eighth area of Surah Baja Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, Allah hula Illa Illa who, Allah, there is no other Illa except him. There is no god worthy of worship except him. Subhanahu wata Allah. Allah says La hula Esma or Husna for Allah is the most beautiful of names. And then we have in
Surah, two hasha i 24 Allah subhanho wa Taala telling us that he has beautiful names and these ayat ayat that are known to many of us, we love listening to them in Salah, we love listening to them, or listening to the different reciters recite these ayat and we love reading these ayat as well. And I'm sure you will agree with me when you visit this particular point in the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, who Allah who will hardly call Barry Olmos, so we're Hula, hula USMA all her SNA. So Allah says that Allah has beautiful names as well in this particular area. Now, when we look at the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala says that he has beautiful names, then we immediately learn from
this. Two important points. The first thing is that the names of Allah Almighty are all beautiful and praiseworthy in every dimension in every dimension, right? Because if it wasn't, that it wouldn't be a beautiful name. And Allah subhanho wa Taala described his names as beautiful. So this means that the entire name is beautiful, right? Every dimension that this name
teaches us about is beautiful. And the second lesson we learn when Allah subhanho wa Taala says that he has beautiful names is that
these names are filled with Magnanimous meanings. These names are filled with Magnanimous meet magnanimous meanings, because if these names did not have a meaning, then they wouldn't be beautiful names. They would not be beautiful names. So Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us these two important lessons and many other lessons. But for the purposes of our time together, I want to highlight these two important lessons that when Allah says His names are beautiful, he's teaching us that every dimension of the name is beautiful, and that these names indeed have meanings. Now, when we look at the idea in Surah Aarav, where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Will Illa Hill Esma or her sunnah
further rule will be here, whether levena You will he do? Nafi USMA A. So you rizona man can we I'm alone. I want to discuss this one I in some detail,
just for us to take from the yet of the subject matter of the names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala some understanding some understanding. So, this particular i If we have a loose translation regarding it, we see that Allah subhanho wa Taala says, And to Allah belongs the best names, so invoke Him by them
and leave the company of those who practice deviation concerning His names. They will be recompensed for what they have been doing.
So a question comes to mind brothers and sisters. What does it mean? When it's said that deviation has been practiced? Regarding the names of Allah subhanahu wa
able to pay him or him Allah.
He says that this refers to four matters. For matters, the first matter
is or the first practice of deviation is when you take Allah's Name, beautiful name, and give it to an Either
you give this name to something else that should not be worshipped no is worthy of being worshipped.
And this kind of site as an example, a practice of the Koresh for the parade used to name some of the idols left, which is from this whole concept of Isla Jolla, and Rosa, which is from the name Aziz, and this is from the names of Allah subhanho wa taala. So we should never take a name,
a beautiful name of God Almighty, Allah subhanho wa taala, and give it to that which is not worthy of being worshipped, or to an idol. The second deviation, Abraham, Abraham, Allah CITES is when a person names Allah with a name, that is not befitting.
This is a deviation with regards to Allah has beautiful names that we take a name, and we attribute it to God Almighty. And that name is not befitting.
In fact, we shouldn't name God Almighty, any names, even if the name is praiseworthy, and we'll come to this with the permission of God Almighty, either in this episode or the next right, we shouldn't even name God Almighty, because
we have not seen God Almighty. And we are only supposed to name him based on what we know of him. And we only know God Almighty through what he's told us in Revelation, and taught to us via his messengers, and in particular, the final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but for the purposes of our discussion now,
surrounding the topic of the practice of daeviation. With regards to God Almighty, His names, then this includes giving God Almighty a name, that is not befitting like some people do when they call God or Allah subhanho wa taala. The father. This is not a befitting name for Allah subhanho wa taala. This, this is daeviation with regards to Allah's beautiful name, subhanho wa taala. And a person who does this falls under the warning in the eye. In the eye of that we just cited, we've got Almighty says that he will deal with those who transgress when it comes to his names, the third deviation, brothers and sisters,
with regards to God Almighty His names is describing God Almighty with names or descriptions, descriptions, rather, that are not befitting that I'm not befitting. Now, I will allow you all to ponder over this particular point and when we return from the break we will discuss this particular point a little bit more. Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
