My dear brothers and sisters are servants of Allah and oh Children of Adam 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 may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant His death once is pleased with us and grant us a life full of actions
whereby His names are always remembered. I mean, I mean, all praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we seek Allah subhanho wa Taala assistance, and we seek His guidance subhanho wa Taala and we seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala and from the evils of our souls and the adverse consequences of our deeds, whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon the land can misguide him. And whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees misguidance upon then none can guide him and peace and Salutations be upon define and messenger Muhammad 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 final messenger May Allah subhanho wa Taala gather us with him in Jana mean, I mean, brothers and sisters, in our last episode, we were traversing through the principles with regards to god of mighty names. And in a nutshell, we said that first and foremost, they are totally iffy Yeah, meaning that we are not allowed to invent names. Rather, we name Allah based on what he subhanho wa Taala has named himself we also said that he has the most elevated of examples. Thus, we never compare his name, or the dimensions of his name, or the implications and attributes of his name to anyone in creation, or anything else. From the principles
we discussed is that if a name of God Almighty shares a base, some letters, for example, but the actual name is different, and we shared an example for example, a half year and alpha and alpha for alpha and alpha d, and a look today shares certain letters. However, in principle, we count them as individual names we don't say these three names are one name, rather, we say they are three names, right? So for those who want to memorize 99 names to enter Paradise, memorize and look after and so on and so forth. Then, if you take these three names, you have memorized three names. Then we discussed the important principle regarding certain names of God Almighty that exists in pairs, and
we said we shouldn't separate them, we constitute or count those two names as one name why because when the two names come together, they become beautiful names and we share an example such as Alka bib and Albert, Albert refers to the most generous, the one who is outstretched, the one who
is not withholding and the one whose bounties are so much he never decreases. And then we have alpha with an IRB that refers to the one who withholds so when we discuss the Name of Allah, and Kharbut, or the one that withholds when we discuss it, in light of Albert is the one who is the most generous, the one, the one who has bounties that are so vast, they never diminish. We understand it as a beautiful name, that when Allah withholds it's because it's good for us. So Allah is beautiful and is withholding not like you and I, right when we hold. It's because we lack resources when Allah subhanho wa Taala withhold. It's not because he lacks resources. Allah withholds when he has
resources that Allah is beautiful in His withholding. Allah is beautiful and is withholding and we never separate that name from alphabet soup, which is the fact that he SubhanaHu wa to Allah is Most Generous. So
point in case here is that when Allah reveals about himself, two names and attaches them together, we never separate them. And in principle, we count them as one name. So I will call it an albatross. It is one name not like alpha food and alpha, those are three names right. So this principle is likely or this principle is opposite to what we discussed and these are the reasons why
The Scholars say that they are taken as one name for Allah subhanho wa Taala reveal them together. Thus we never separate them because the moment you separate, withholding from the most generous and the most giving and the one who has an unprecedented bounty, then the meaning lacks in vigor and Villa right, but when they attached, it becomes beautiful. Thus we leave it as Allah subhanahu wata Allah subhanho wa taala. Now, listen to this next principle and this is an amazing principle if it doesn't make your hair stand. I don't know what were.
The Scholars say
that Allah Almighty His actions
are a result of his name's subhanho ad. Whilst the names of the Creation yourself and myself are a result of our actions.
I hope you've understood this. I hope you've understood this. Let's let me say that again. Okay. Allah Almighty His actions are a result of his name's
whilst the names of the creation
are a result of the actions. Let's start with the creation, you and I to be called the doctor.
We have to have studied to become a doctor. We cannot have the name until the action of being a doctor exists. I cannot be called a football player. Until the action of being a football player exists. I cannot be the best football player until the action of being the best football player exists. We are not deserving of titles unless we earn it.
Love Akbar Allah subhanho wa Taala is complete from ever and forever. Allah subhanho wa Taala does not need to create to be called the Creator.
He was the creator, before He created, He was the creator from ever and will be the creator forever subhanho wa Taala he didn't need to create for the action to exist for himself to now be called the Creator no servants of Allah and ocean environments how beautiful Allah's names are and this is how perfect Allah subhanho wa Taala is Lo Akbar Allah He
the emotions that run through a person when you understand how amazing Allah subhanho wa Taala is, you cannot describe these emotions. Allah subhanho wa Taala never needed to create to be called the Creator he never needed to create a week so that will sin and turn to Allah for forgiveness. And then Allah forgives this week. So to be called alpha, and to be called a fool and to be called unhappier, why didn't need us to sin and seek forgiveness to have these names. Allah was the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful from ever and forever. He was the most Forgiving, the Most Merciful before he forgave and never needed to forgive, to be called The One Who forgives Allah subhanho wa
Taala Allahu Akbar Allah He, I think, just this point is enough for us to close our discussion together and say we've given the series it's Huck and it's right. May Allah subhanahu wa taala open our hearts and grant us the understanding. I mean, I mean, I mean, it will tell you Mohamed Allah says this is this is the manifestation of the completeness of Allah subhanho wa taala. This is the manifestation of the completeness of Allah subhanho wa Taala
Alhamdulillah for Islam, and Alhamdulillah for being chosen to be from those who declared Allah as one. And those who accepted the prophecy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this, we accepted the revelation from Allah that came to us via his prophet, and learned wholesale from the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a man that was the academic of all academics, the man who taught us about Allah over 1400 years ago in Arabic, and today we can have a lesson in English about his teachings of Allah subhanho wa Taala and be affected by it. So Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with Allah subhanho wa Taala gathers with him in January.
I mean, my dear brothers and sisters, one final point I want to discuss with you all and this is to complement the first point we said that we cannot name Allah, that which he didn't name himself. But what about speaking about Allah generally
making a statement about Allah subhanahu wa Tad, are we allowed to do so for example to say Allah engineered this creation? As a statement not saying Allah is the engineer? Is this allowed? Yes, this is permitted as explained by the scholars and even to me Yeah. Rahim Allah says in his fatawa that in terms of making statements about Allah by saying For example, He is present mo Jude, using the term Mo, Jude. Right, then this is not a major issue. Rather a statement about someone is not the same as naming someone. However, we must ensure that the statement must imply something praiseworthy, something praiseworthy, but for us to say that from the names of Allah is that he's
the engineer, then as we discussed, as we discussed
earlier, this is not permissible. There's a litmus test and this name calling Allah the engineer would not pass that particular litmus test but to say it as a statement that Allah engineered such and such, then this is fine as a statement on condition that the meaning in what we say as a statement about Allah is a pleasant meaning is a meaning that has a good implication and connotation. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best This brings us to the end of my brief introduction that I wanted to share with you all and Inshallah, when we return, we will discuss a name from the Beautiful Names of Allah subhanahu wata, Allah Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi
