Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa bikina Starion on Sunday on Salim ala cotterman Naveen, the bnm Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman Kathira en la AMI Dini bad. Rubbish rally surgery is really Emery what we looked at a melissani, Yahoo Kohli, all praises belong to Allah subhanho wa taala. We praise him SubhanaHu wa to Allah, and we seek his assistance and 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. Whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees guidance upon, the man can misguide him and whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala decrees

00:01:01--> 00:01:49

misguidance upon the man can guide him, and peace and Salutations be upon the final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I believe this that there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his final messenger. My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh I welcome you all to another episode in our series in the company of Allah subhanho wa ala. Thank you all for allowing me to be a guest in your home and I pray that I am a worthy one. In our last episode, we were discussing the name of Allah. And we said that this is a name that encompasses all the names of Allah subhanahu wa to Allah

00:01:49--> 00:02:44

for Allah subhanho wa Taala did not tell us that from the names of Rahman is Allah rather he told us that it is a He is Allah. There is no one worthy of worship besides Him. And then Allah went on to list His other Names early Mojave was shahada, who are rahman, rahim, Al Malik, Al Quddus, a Salam, Al Amin, Al Mohammed, Al Aziz al Jabbar al muta, Kabir, and so on and so forth. And we discussed how this name revives the self, because the self develops and understanding when the name of Allah is called out, that indeed, the creator of the self has been called upon Allah subhanho wa taala. This name is beautiful in that it is so easy to pronounce. Its letters are soft and easy. We have the

00:02:44--> 00:02:50

earth from the Hamza, and we have the hair from the hair. And

00:02:52--> 00:03:44

this is a name that a child can pronounce, babies can pronounce so it is Allah's mercy upon us. That He guided us to Islam, and God's does the recognition of this great name, Allah subhanahu wa to Allah after this name. Brothers and sisters, we have yet another name from the names of Allah, and that is Rob. The name Rob. And with regards to this particular name, then as Allah subhanho wa Taala introduces himself by announcing that he is Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala introduces himself to the masses as well, using this name for Allah subhanho wa Taala says Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. So all praises belong to Allah, Who is this Allah? Allah says Allah, Allah, Allah mean Lord of the

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

Worlds

00:03:46--> 00:03:48

this name, Rob

00:03:49--> 00:04:40

is mentioned in the Quran 2153 times, and this name has a range of linguistic meanings. And with regards to Allah subhanho wa Taala it has meanings as well and insha Allah in this episode, we will try and cover some of these meanings. So Allah subhanho wa Taala introduces himself to the masses using this word or Rob, and this name and word is in surah, Al Fatiha a surah that is known as the opening of the book, the opening of the book, and it's amazing that Allah subhanho wa Taala chooses to use this particular name, because when we look at the term linguistically carries a number of meanings from them is this concept of being a nurture

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

and the one that brings up and fosters and raises and nourishes and grows something to its completion grows something to its completion. So you feel from this rub protection because you understand that this orb is the protector and this name Rob

00:05:00--> 00:05:50

entails the meanings of creator of giver of life and death, the one who gives honor and disgrace, and the sustainer and the maker and the Nourisher, as explained by Abel Kathy Rahim Allah and Abraham hula, and others from the previous predecessors that walked the face of this earth before us. And we're blessed with deep knowledge of the Arabic language and the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This term or OB also refers to a guardian, a patron, and one who supervises and is responsible for carrying out all improvements, as well as refers to the one who occupies a central or focal position, or who himself gathers people round himself and this is Allah

00:05:50--> 00:06:41

subhanho wa taala. The term Rob also refers to a leader, a head, a chief, a Lord, as we find the term are translated as Lord of the Worlds, the one who is obeyed the one who possesses supremacy, the one who is acknowledged and has authority to dispose. This is Allah subhanho wa taala. And this is the term are up in terms of its linguistic meaning. So it was appropriate that Allah subhanho wa Taala introduced himself in the opening of the book as the Lord of the worlds so that the nations before Islam will understand that the Lord that the Muslims worship is not someone specific to them. Rather, he indeed is

00:06:42--> 00:07:28

the Creator of the heavens and the earth, and the Lord of the worlds and their Lord as well. Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is the wisdom as the scholar say behind Allah subhanho wa Taala using this term, or when we look at this term or up we see Allah subhanho wa Taala used to introduce himself to Musa alayhis salaam, right, Musa alayhis salam was traveling with his family, and he was looking for a place of comfort during the journey, a place to reside and stay and be warm, and have provision and so on and so forth. And we know that Musa alayhis salam, so fire in the distance and he thought he would get some fire and that is why the Scholars say that if you ever wanted to understand the

00:07:28--> 00:08:12

giving of Allah or the generosity of Allah subhanho wa taala. Then think about Musa he went to get firewood and he came back with prophecy Allahu Akbar. Amazing, amazing, right? And maybe we can share this point when we discuss the generosity of Allah subhanho wa taala. So Musa alayhis salam when he went in was given prophecy, Allah subhanho wa Taala said to him in me and Rob Booker facula at the lake in the Kabila dill mocha does your tour. And Allah subhanho wa Taala said in the Allah La ilaha illa Allah for Abu Denee we're a team of solitary Vickery. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says to Musa Verily I am your rob your Lord. So Allah introduced himself to Musa alayhis salam using this

00:08:12--> 00:08:20

term, Rob, and Allah commanded him to take off his shoes, for indeed he was in a sacred valley, the valley of tour.

00:08:22--> 00:09:11

This meaning of rubber, as the scholar say, has a general meaning and a specific meaning in terms of the general meaning, then a rub encompasses both the believers and the disbelievers for Allah subhanho wa Taala is in control of everything. And he is the Lord of those who believe. And he is the only one worthy of worship even though those who disbelieve worship other entities and other deities. So when we understand this, we see that when we talk about or hoody or when the scholars talk about a Buddha and worship, then we see that this term or Buddha or worship is also specific and general there's a Buddha, or this term a bad that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives to the

00:09:11--> 00:09:57

believers, those that have accepted the prophecy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and those who have declared Allah as one. But we see that Allah subhanho wa Taala also refers to the disbelievers as a bed in some instances for Allah subhanahu wata LSAS or yo mama Yeah, sure. Oh mama, yeah, Boo Boo and I mean do Nilla for your Kowloon and to upload to a baddie her Hola. Right. So Allah subhanahu Attallah is talking about resurrecting the disbelievers and that which they used to worship and Allah subhanho wa Taala or it will be said to them, that was it you that caused to become a stray Roberti My servants My servants, so even though they were disbelievers, we see that

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

they are being referred to as servants Allah

00:10:00--> 00:10:30

subhanho wa Taala is indeed the role of the believers as well as the disbelievers. And this is how we understand this name in greater detail. Now, there's an amazing, amazing point mentioned by even Tamia Rahim Allah, an amazing point. And I've said this to you, sometimes and it's worth saying, again, a point that if our hairs don't stand from this, then what will even tell me or him Allah, He says, that

00:10:32--> 00:10:37

we need of the self for a protector

00:10:38--> 00:11:33

allowed itself to accept the lordship of Allah subhanho wa Taala or this rule will be Yeah, over the fact that this Lord is the only one worthy of worship Subhanallah let's ponder over this point, he says, Rahim Allah, that the need of the self, the need of the self towards having a protector towards being protected and towards being nurtured to completion allowed it to accept without any issue, Allah subhanho wa Taala as a rub, because the need of the self to survive was greater than the need to worship when Allah subhanahu wa Tada or as he says, Rahima hula. So he says this need to be protected to be nurtured to completion, allowed the self to accept the rubber, or accept this

00:11:33--> 00:11:48

name of Allah subhanho wa Taala or accept the lordship of Allah subhanho wa Taala because this need was far greater than its need to worship one Allah and as we said in previous episodes, that we were born upon this natural disposition, that

00:11:49--> 00:11:57

both tests testimony to the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala is our Lord but as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us

00:11:58--> 00:12:48

our environments pollute that natural disposition. Verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala reviewed books. And thus he sent angels to teach the self that your need to worship one Allah is far greater than your need to have or your need to accept something that will protect you and nurture you to completion. Subhanallah This is amazing. And we know this because even the Quraysh they knew that ALLAH existed as a Europe. They accepted Allah as a ROB as the Creator as the sustainer as the nourish and so on and so forth, as the one that protects and nurtures them to completion. We know in the Quran Allah says that when they experienced turbulent times on the sea, they turn to Allah

00:12:48--> 00:13:12

subhanahu wa to Anna, with focus, they tend to Allah subhanho wa Taala with heart and with sin, with soul, and with sincerity. And the Ask it's supplicate from Allah subhanho wa Taala it's time for a break and in sha Allah when we come back, we will continue just Aquila O'Hara Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
