Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Hua ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Manuela Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. I pray our break was beneficial. And we really, really

00:00:21--> 00:01:08

felt what this term merciful means. And that's the term we were touching upon just before the break. And for those who are just joining us, we've actually grouped several of names from the names of Allah subhanho wa taala. And the theme of mercy and compassion and we've said that from the names that fit under this theme is R Rahman, r Rahim, alpha, alpha for L bar, which is the dual of good for Allah indeed is good to us when Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives us a word the ever relenting whenever we ask Allah to whenever we repent and ask him to accept our repentance he does and allow for the effacer of sin. So all these names fall under this theme of mercy and compassion. And just

00:01:08--> 00:01:28

before the break I said, How can a believer ever be depressed when they are believers? And Allah has told them that Allah subhanho wa Taala He Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Merciful. Before the break, we discussed the mercy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but we said his mercy is nowhere near the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa taala. And brothers and sisters by Allah I ask you,

00:01:30--> 00:01:32

we see the work of the disbelievers.

00:01:34--> 00:02:09

They go totally against the Command of Allah. They associate partners and to Allah. And even then Allah allows them to breathe and live. Even then Allah allows them financial standing and material well being. Even then Allah allows them to wake up every morning in comfort. Even then Allah blesses them with offspring, and the ability to educate them and blesses them with the ability to manufacture and engineer and invent and so on and so forth by Allah, what name comes to light when you see

00:02:11--> 00:02:25

these immunities being given to those who disobeyed Allah subhanho wa Taala openly to those who say Allah has a son to those who associate partners with Allah to those who deny Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:27--> 00:02:59

If this is the case with them, then indeed Allah is merciful. And if we are from the amongst those who declared the Oneness of Allah, and accept the prophecy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam How can we ever feel that gender is beyond us by Allah, I bring you glad tidings when we discuss this theme, that gender is not beyond us by Allah, even the highest gender is not beyond this. Despite what we have done. Allah can not only give us Jana, but give us gender with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:03:00--> 00:03:16

May Allah grant us Janna and grant us the understanding. I mean, let's traverse through these names very quickly. A rock man, the Merciful, the Most Merciful, is mentioned in the Quran 57 times in 16 different tours.

00:03:18--> 00:03:18

And

00:03:21--> 00:03:51

most of the suitors it was mentioned in the MK consolas. Surah is dealing with the idolater those trapped under the shackles of sheer can idolatry trapped under the way of the forefathers, we find this term or man mentioned to them Subhanallah when we look at Ibrahim alayhi salam, and he's telling his father Oh, my dear father, don't worship chiffon. Don't

00:03:52--> 00:04:28

because if you continue, you will make yourself subset susceptible to what to the punishment of who of our ramen? Allahu Akbar. Rahim Allah. He said, I'm this young boy, inviting his father. He understood this name from the names of Allah. He's telling his father, he's telling his father, that if you carry on like this, you will face the punishment of Rama and what is he telling his father, my dear father, despite what you have done, don't lose hope in the Mercy of Allah, his or her man. If you turn to Him, He will forgive you.

00:04:30--> 00:04:51

And he will remove your past and your mistakes and your sins. And oh my dear father, if you carry on then the one who will be punishing his or her man so imagine what type of punishment it will be. That He is the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful. But he punishes those who do not accept the way of the heat and the unity of Allah's lordship.

00:04:53--> 00:04:58

What a wise person Ibrahim was, may Allah gather us with him in Jana? And I mean

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

when Allah

00:05:00--> 00:05:55

gives us a child. This is from his mercy. And Allah tells Zecharia that when Allah grants him yeah, that this was the Mercy of Allah upon him. When Allah feeds the fetus, in the womb of a mother, this is from the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa taala. When Allah causes this fetus, this child to come into the world, through a tight canal, and it lives, and immediately it finds comfort by the chest of a mother. This is from the Mercy of Allah, that it recognizes something it never ever saw. It went through a journey full of fear. But immediately after entering this world, Allah provided a point of comfort. It doesn't know but ALLAH inspires it immediately. This is from the Mercy of Allah. And the

00:05:55--> 00:06:02

sustenance that Allah has set for the parent and the child is from the Mercy of Allah.

00:06:03--> 00:06:25

The mercy that an animal has, for the offspring that it bears Allahu Akbar, we see it, even a lion Vicious by nature, soft with its offspring, teaching it how to walk, teaching it, how to feed from it, this is from the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:06:26--> 00:06:43

We are taught that Allah's Mercy is divided into 100 parts and the mercy we experienced and celebrate and enjoy is just one part from the 100 parts of Allah's mercy 99 parts of that mercy has been preserved for the death of

00:06:45--> 00:06:47

Allah who are servants of Allah.

00:06:50--> 00:07:01

And oh Children of Adam, what will make us understand how can we deny Allah and feel depressed and feel that we have no hope? Especially when we have declared Allah as oneness

00:07:03--> 00:07:05

and accepted the prophecy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:07:06--> 00:07:18

from the names of the steam have mercy and compassion brothers and sisters is a Raheem and this name has been mentioned in the Quran 115 times 115 times.

00:07:20--> 00:07:33

Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book, bullied or Allah Ha, a widow ramen say oh Muhammad, invoke Allah or invoke the Most Gracious or recommend

00:07:34--> 00:08:25

or Rama and the scholars teachers that this this name Allah and this name a ramen can never belong to anyone but Allah subhanho Ramen can never belong to anyone but Allah subhanho wa Taala by Allah who can be merciful in this way no one deserves this name. Thus Allah subhanho wa Taala commands Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to supplicate and invoke Allah using this name Allah. Oh, a ramen, this name, the Most Gracious and then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Am tender fella who smell Husna that by whatever name you invoke Him, it is the same for To Him belongs the best of names subhanho wa taala. Allah subhanahu Allah Allah says in the leadin Ermelo Well, me was slightly

00:08:25--> 00:09:16

ahead, so yeah, GRI Lula humo Rahman would there. Verily those who believe in the Oneness of Allah, and the messenger of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and work deeds of righteousness, the Most Gracious our man will be stout love for them. Law Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Allah subhanho wa Taala has many yet in his book, dealing with a man and dealing with an Rahim and make it your prerogative to read the Quran, cover from cover to cover. And every time you come across these names, stop and ponder over them, and make it your life's journey to learn everything about them. From the names of Allah is alpha and alpha four, and Alaska. And in previous episodes, I shared with you all that

00:09:16--> 00:09:50

these names are not one name, even though they share a common platform in terms of the letters of the name, but they are different names. Why? Because the implications of these names are magnanimously different allow for the one who forgives Allah far the one who perpetually forgives her for the one who always forgives his slave, though, the one who makes it possible for his slave to be purified after he sins after he slips after he makes a mistake. I will fool the one who makes it possible

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

for you to redeem yourself. I will have far perpetually forgiving, perpetually forgiving you

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

sin, He forgives you. You send again. He forgives you. You send again He forgives you, you send again. He forgives you, perpetually forgiving. Allah subhanho wa Taala from the names of Allah subhanahu wa Tada is that Allah is awful, the effacer of sins, the one who wipes out your sin. He makes you a sin, something that never ever existed. He forgives you in such a way that the angel that recorded your sin is made to forget the ground on which you made that sin is made to forget the environment in which you made that sin is made to forget the ink that has registered your sin is lifted and made to disappear. When you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of Yama. It's as if

00:10:45--> 00:10:47

you never did that sin in the first place.

00:10:49--> 00:11:42

We face of sins LFO Allah whom in NACA are four one, Allah Houma Indeed you are for the effacer of sin. You are the partner to input alpha, you love to pardon for Anna, this, forgive us, this forgive us, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to frequent this name during the last nights of Ramadan when we search for later to Qatar, from the names of Allah is a web is a web, the one who is ever relenting ever accepting your repentance? Never a time comes when you turn to Allah and seek forgiveness with regret for your sins and your major sins that Allah will ever say enough is enough. Until when are you going to continue? You will make a mistake. You get forgiven you make

00:11:42--> 00:12:27

the mistake again, don't you feel shy? This is what you and I do for Allah subhanho wa Taala No, he will never say that to us. Allah loves to forgive us and becomes happy when we tend to Him and seek repentance. This Allah is a tow verb, perpetually accepting our repentance perpetually accepting our repentance Allahu Akbar, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant is the understanding with his name's me, oh servants of Allah and children of Adam. I wish we had hours together just to discuss these attributes of mercy. Sadly, our time has come to an end. But Insha Allah, in our next episode, should Allah grant us life and bring us together? I will share with you some teachings of Muhammad

00:12:27--> 00:12:35

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam regarding the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa taala. Join me then until then, a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
