My dear brothers and sisters. Towards the end of our last episode, we discussed some of the names that fall under the

00:01:33--> 00:01:37

theme of knowledge. And whilst we completed those names,

00:01:39--> 00:01:58

I was sharing with you the importance of us growing ourselves and growing our character from these names. Firstly, we should know that if these are from the Beautiful Names of Allah, then Allah loves these attributes. And if Allah loves these attributes, it's enough for us to understand how important

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

the characters that these attributes teach us must be in the life of a human being, how important they must be in the life of a human being, and how they must be a part and parcel of us, those that have declared Allah as one and those that have accepted the prophecy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. These gifts and the knowledge of these names are from the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon a person who's a Muslim, and we know that when we accept Islam, an unprecedented potential comes to us

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

when we pray, Our Salah

00:02:37--> 00:02:48

our Salah can never ever be different in public, than the way it is in private. When we know Allah is Allah and him, when we know his Raqib, when we know his Shahid,

00:02:49--> 00:03:33

when we do something for the sake of Allah, we can never be upset that no one is recognizing our efforts. No one appreciates what we're going through. That we are being selfless in a particular team in a particular project, but we're not gaining recognition for it. And Shavon whispers to us and makes us sad, when we know these names of Allah, that Allah is the all knowing, and Allah is the old seeing, and Allah is the old hearing. And Allah is the universal witness. And Allah is the all they ever watchful Allahu Akbar. When we know these names, we can never ever feel sad. We can never ever feel disbanded, rather, we carry on working, and even more, we better our work, we better our

00:03:33--> 00:04:17

work, because who needs the recognition of anyone else? When you have the recognition of Allah subhanho wa Taala what Belaire he Shahida Allah is enough for you as a witness who needs the recognition of anyone else. When you have the recognition of the Creator of everything in creation, the only one who can reward the only one who gives honor the only one who raises in rank, the one who can give us Jana who needs the recognition of the creation, when you have the recognition of the Creator, Allah subhanho wa taala. So brothers and sisters, please, please take these names, digest them, make it a part of yourself and live by them and allow it to develop your character and you

00:04:17--> 00:04:21

will see what a happy person will become. What a gentle person you will become.

00:04:23--> 00:04:46

You'll be a person with a soft heart, not a stressed heart. And it will even help you in controlling your high blood pressure when Allah grant us the understanding. For the purposes of this segment, in our episode, I want to share with you another name from the names of Allah and that is the name of Allah, which is a reserach

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

for Allah is a writer. He is the sustainer and he is a reserach the perpetual sustain Allahu Akbar, or rizek is the internet

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

densified form of the name or Rasik

00:05:04--> 00:05:13

and when we look at this name in the book of Allah subhanahu Attallah, we see how amazingly Allah subhanho wa Taala attaches it to the concept of worship.

00:05:14--> 00:05:32

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, One holler po two gene, now well in things, a Lallier boo, that mankind and jinn kind were not created except to worship Allah.

00:05:33--> 00:05:46

Man Ori do mean home mirror is Allah subhanho wa Taala never created us for this purpose of sustenance of acquiring financial standing, and gaining material well being.

00:05:49--> 00:05:53

Allah subhanho wa Taala says woman only au for a month

00:05:54--> 00:06:03

and he says subhanho wa taala. In no Allaha Indeed, Allah, whoever was

00:06:04--> 00:06:59

his the perpetual provider will owe it Mati. So Allah subhanho wa Taala introduces himself to us as the perpetual provider, not a temporary provider, not a provider that can only provide some times and not, during other times, not a provider that can be abundant during some times and less abundant during other times, no, he's back. He can provide to us perpetually in the most perfect form. And we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala has described his bounties as vast and that is why from the names of Allah is Allah may Allah grant us life, to discuss that name. In our series, Allah is vast, if Allah took everyone in creation, from beginning of creation to the end of creation, and ask them to

00:06:59--> 00:07:11

ask and ask and ask and ask till their desires dried up. And Allah gave them what they wanted, and multiplied what they wanted. Manifest.

00:07:13--> 00:07:43

Allah subhanho wa Taala says that this will not decrease from the bounties of Allah, except the decrease witnessed when you take a needle and dip it into the largest ocean. Meaning when you remove that needle, the water you remove from that ocean is absolutely no, Allah will give us and it will not even decrease his bounty in a small way whatsoever Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.

00:07:44--> 00:08:28

It is this name of servants of Allah, that we need to understand that indeed, we were created to worship Allah. And it is this name that should nurture us to never ever leave the worship of Allah, the direct worship of Allah for the sake of sustenance, where we leave our Syrah for the sake of work. Why? Because we have this feeling that we have to put food on the table we have to build it is this a name that teaches us Oh servants of Allah, that it is not us who puts food on the table? What we do is a means rather, it is Allah who decrees the sustenance and it is Allah who puts food on your table, La ilaha illa Allah, it is this a name that makes us humble. And this name that stops us

00:08:28--> 00:09:16

being a person of me and myself, and I, it is this name that stops us saying that I work and I do, and I provide and I pay my children's school fees, and I pay I put food on the table and so on and so forth. I am the owner of this car and I bought this car, it is this name of servants of Allah that puts us in our place and teaches us that it is not me and it is not myself and it is not I rather it is Allah, it is Allah who is provided me this food, it is Allah who who is recirc he provided me my children, it is Allah who is reserach who provided me my wife, it is Allah who is reserved, who provided me this financial standing, it is Allah who is reserach who provided me this

00:09:16--> 00:09:59

material well being it is Allah who is reserach who provided me with the happiness that I feel it is Allah who is reserach who provided me with my healthy heart. It is Allah who is reserved who provided me with health. It is Allah who is not Zack who provided me with sleep, it is Allah who is reserach who provided me with the ability to travel the world of Allah subhanho wa Taala to witness the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala it is indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala who is the ultimate provider? It is he who provides for the fetus in the womb of its mother. Once the mother feels not, the mother does not have to think about feeding this child. It is Allah who provides this child

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

Without anyone feeling, Allahu Akbar Allah if we had to remember feeding the fetus, in this in the womb of a mother, this, no child would be born, we would forget. And this child would die of hunger. It is Allah who provides are servants of Allah. Well ma'am in there but in Villa Illa, Allah here is, there is no there is nothing that walks the face of this earth, except that it is a point Allah to sustain it. Allah has made it YG upon himself to sustain it Subhan Allah, the smallest and does not live in and of itself. It is Allah who provides for it, the tree does not live in and of itself. It is Allah who provides for it. Allah says it is upon Allah, Allah Allah here is who is not for

00:10:47--> 00:11:05

Allah to Allah has made it something of an obligation upon himself to provide Subhan Allah, the smallest act. And as the smallest ant eats, Allah is the provider for the greatest animal, the greatest animal.

00:11:06--> 00:11:11

Many of you might say, the greatest animal is an elephant.

00:11:13--> 00:11:20

And how much does Allah need to decree? For a mighty elephant to eat?

00:11:23--> 00:11:35

But what if I told you that there's a creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala that has a tongue, which is heavier than an elephant? What would you say to that are servants of Allah? And oh children of Adam.

00:11:37--> 00:11:54

And if you thought of a creation of Allah, that has a tongue that's mightier than an elephant, then what must this creation of Allah need to eat? And what quantity should it eat? And does this quantity exist? These questions come to mind.

00:11:56--> 00:12:06

digest this point, and perhaps research this animal as we take a short break and inshallah when we return, we will discuss how Allah indeed is.

00:12:08--> 00:12:10

Salam? Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

Allah, Allah
