Probably either mean or beginner Sterling and Sullivan who Sallim ala Hartman the beginner beginner Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi are seldom at the Sleeman Kathira Mateen. My bad.

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

Rubbish recently where Sidley Emery handed up data Melissa and EF colleague will begin in the name of Allah subhanho wa taala. And request praises and blessings upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam salam ala Alikum warahmatu wabarakatuh May Allah's peace and His blessings may he safety, His mercy be upon you all. Can you all hear me from this speakerphone here? All right, Zack Hello Karen. And welcome to another

00:00:39--> 00:00:47

quality and episode and installment of our Ramadan weekend series

00:00:50--> 00:01:08

dedicated upon your request to the names of Allah subhanho wa taala. And last week Alhamdulillah we were blessed to discuss two names from the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala Rahman and Rahim and

00:01:13--> 00:01:22

I think I should ask some questions that way we know the level of comprehension insha Allah amidst us, so, who can

00:01:24--> 00:01:34

summarize for us the meaning of Rockman and its linguistic scale and the relationship between Rockman and its linguistic scale?

00:01:36--> 00:01:48

Or is that too difficult the question too many details let's take it step by step okay. Upon which linguistic scale is the name Rockman upon

00:01:50--> 00:02:01

alpha ln excellent and names or words upon the scale, alpha ln in the Arabic language, what do they denote in terms of meaning?

00:02:02--> 00:02:08

Do we remember the generally as a general principle, words upon the scale,

00:02:09--> 00:02:14

they are related to a particular meaning.

00:02:15--> 00:02:18

Remember, we said it's, it's the meaning of extent.

00:02:19--> 00:02:30

It's the meaning of extent and as such a rough man teaches us the extent of Allah's mercy. That is mercy is so vast it encompasses everything, okay.

00:02:31--> 00:02:41

And, as such, we highlighted that some have translated or reprimand to be the Entirely Merciful, although we do find translations for example, the Most Gracious

00:02:43--> 00:02:47

but some have opted to translate it as the Entirely Merciful

00:02:48--> 00:03:00

referencing this Arabic scale and the meanings that it entails. Okay. And what about a Rahim can tell us upon which scale do we find the name of Allah or Rahim?

00:03:07--> 00:03:08

We got stuck

00:03:09--> 00:03:09


00:03:10--> 00:03:13

alpha, upon the scale alpha.

00:03:14--> 00:03:21

And words upon the scale, what do they denote in terms of meaning as a general principle? Of course.

00:03:24--> 00:03:32

They denote something more specific. And we said a Rahim refers to the one who has a mercy that is specific for the believers.

00:03:33--> 00:03:48

And as such, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described Allah subhanho wa Taala as a man a duniya. Well, acidotic Rahima Houma. He described Allah as Rahman and Rahim of both this life and the next.

00:03:49--> 00:03:51

Excellent, excellent question Allah.

00:03:53--> 00:04:00

Week is a long time even though days fly and knowledge flies even faster. So sometimes we learn some things Hala

00:04:01--> 00:04:26

Saran and Lucienne. Very quickly, we forget we did discuss more, but the focus of last week's session was on a Rahman and Raheem and Masha Allah the series that you all have beautifully titled to know him is to love him. And we connected this idea of knowledge to love and what the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala should entail.

00:04:28--> 00:04:37

Even Taymiyah Rahim Allah, he mentioned that knowledge in its complete form comes about with knowing

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

two of its branches. The first branch is knowing Allah subhanho wa Taala knowing all that we can about him, all that is taught to us in the Quran. And in the Sunnah and also through our fitrah the three sources of our knowledge, we have our fitrah our natural disposition, in its purest form, it teaches us about Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

Right. So we learned about Allah subhanho wa Taala through the fitrah. We learn about Allah subhanho wa taala. Through the Quran, we learn, which is revelation of course, and we learn about Allah Subhana Allah to Allah through the Sunnah, which is another form of Revelation, Revelation

00:05:18--> 00:05:27

through the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. With the prophetic tradition, these are three ways through which we learn about Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:05:28--> 00:05:52

Also, through practice through experience, we learn about Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is through a form known as de facto, de facto is pondering over the creation of Allah subhanahu Ettan over us as a creation Wolfie and fusuma Fela to bassoon, as Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals in yourselves if you ponder over yourselves,

00:05:53--> 00:06:37

your existence as creative beings, you will become from Earl basura. From the people of perception, perception about what the perception of knowing Allah subhanho wa Taala knowing about knowing who he is, knowing him as a creator Subhana who were two or three unphysical of Allah to pursue soon, Allah Subhana Allah Allah says for the incense Illa time that mankind should look at his or her means of sustenance with food and drink that Allah subhanahu wa Tada has given them how Allah subhanho wa Taala has delivered it to them. And Allah subhanho wa Taala lessons the winds that brings about clouds and these clouds bring about beneficial rainfall and beneficial rainfall gives life to dead

00:06:37--> 00:06:56

land. And through this science of how Allah subhanho wa Taala brings life to dead hearts Subhan Allah Allah in Surah Hadid describes after teaching us about hard hearts he says LM one hola hola out of the bat demo Tia

00:06:57--> 00:06:58

that understand

00:06:59--> 00:07:19

through the examples that Allah gives, and how Allah gives life to dead land, how Allah subhanho wa Taala can give life to a dead heart Subhan Allah, these are all from the science of Allah subhanho wa Taala how physically our hearts beat without us even needing to think about them beating our hearts beat without us needing to remember.

00:07:22--> 00:07:27

For them to beat Imagine if our life was dependent on us remembering

00:07:28--> 00:08:18

if our hearts ability to beat was dependent on our minds ability to remember it beating Subhanallah right? We just I wouldn't say forgot, but Subhanallah how distant did the knowledge from last week that we shed become between last week and this week? We had to remember our hearts beating for us to survive Subhanallah how many of us would survive and how long would we survive for? Right especially SubhanAllah. As the days move along we become even more forgetful as life progresses, we become even more forgetful and Allah subhanahu Atana also describes to us the cycle of life in the Quran in many events, how Allah subhanho wa Taala created us window from weakness from German Peridot felucca from

00:08:18--> 00:08:57

weakness, Allah subhanahu atatiana brought about strength. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala took us to a stage whereby that strength was replaced with weakness and weak bones and white hair, and so on and so forth. Allah subhanahu Hytera describes this to us in the Quran, teaching us about Allah subhanho wa Taala right through to Falco. As we ponder, we learn about Allah, Allah subhanahu Attallah describes the stages of development of the fetus in the womb of its mother. Through pondering over this, again, we learn about Allah subhanho wa Taala and more specifically, what it means when Allah says He is hot and harlech, the creator, and Allah, Allah Subhanallah, the

00:08:57--> 00:09:37

perpetual, perpetual creator, because when we ponder over life's events, we see that it's constantly shifting, it's constantly changing, it's not static, it's always dynamic. And it's Allah subhanho wa taala, who is creating all these moving moments, all these shifting moments? Subhanallah and through this, you understand exactly what it means when we say Allah is a hardship and we say he's an Haluk Subhan Allah, the Creator and the perpetual creator, that every breath you breathe is a moment. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has created that moment, every leaf that falls from every tree is a moment, and Allah has created that moment, and how many countless leaves fall during every moment, haha. And

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

Allah is creating all those moments effortlessly, without any fatigue, the ADA heilala And this, again, allows us to understand exactly who our Creator is cerebral epidemia human mentions this that the branches of knowledge are two. The first is to learn about the Creator to learn about Allah to learn about the legislator, and how do we learn about him through our fitrah

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

Through the Quran, through the Sunnah, and we've also spoken now about the fact that we can add this to the list of how we learned about Allah subhanho wa Taala and then also to learn about that which the legislator legislated. This is from the completeness of knowledge. It's not enough just to know Allah and not know what he legislated. For this will lead to one going astray. And we know about the Christians who Allah subhanho wa Taala describes as being bad lead in Surah Fatiha scholars of deceit highlight that they were baleen, they were misguided and they went astray. They had love for Allah subhanho wa taala. But they didn't worship in proper knowledge. And as such, they declared

00:10:47--> 00:11:28

Jesus and Elisa alayhis salaam, this great prophet of Allah subhanho wa taala, to be to be the son of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then they innovated in the religion and worshipped Allah in ways that Allah subhanho wa Taala didn't reveal. Right? And as such, they went against a key function of life, and that is to worship Allah how Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to be worship, this is the reality of life, that we worship Allah how he wants to be worshipped, not about just loving Allah. No, it's about loving him how he wants to be loved. And then it's not just about doing for Allah, it's about doing for Allah how he wants you to do it. And that's why faith is about two aspects. La ilaha illa

00:11:28--> 00:11:37

Allah, Muhammad Rasulullah and La Ilaha illa Allah is about two aspects as well. La ilaha illa Allah is about denying all falsehood and affirming all truth.

00:11:39--> 00:11:40

And that is

00:11:41--> 00:12:26

this part about knowing Allah subhanho wa Taala and Muhammad Rasulullah is about your testimony, that you will only live on earth and breathe on Earth as Allah subhanho wa Taala wants you to live and breathe, but how you want to live and breathe if you don't love Allah how you want. And as such you don't worship Him how you want. It's all about him. And your existence is all about his to have him venerating him, honoring him SubhanaHu attack. This is our reality, my dearest Sisters in Islam. We exist for the sake of the Vehm of Allah subhanho wa taala, venerating him everything we do, our actions, our words, our beliefs. So what about the veneration of Allah subhanho wa taala. And that's

00:12:26--> 00:12:34

why Ramadan is so important for the slave of Allah. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has set

00:12:35--> 00:13:02

a reward that isn't defined for the one who fasts as we know from the Hadith Bootsy that Allah subhanahu wa taala has set a reward for every act. And Allah subhanho wa Taala multiplies those rewards based on the intention of the person when that act is that up to 700 times or more, but then Allah subhanho wa Taala MSA is except fasting, for it is for me, and its reward is from me. Subhan Allah Subhanallah because

00:13:04--> 00:13:42

firstly, fasting is one of those deeds that can happen with the highest level of sincerity, right? Because when you pray this, that there's a manifestation of it. And that can affect our intentions. When you give charity, there's a manifestation of it. And that can affect our intentions. But when you fast Subhanallah you live in food you live in drink, this is something that people can actually do. And you can manage your day doing it without anyone knowing that you fasting except if you tell them upon Allah. And the Sunnah teaches us that we do not tell them unless they do something to us that will affect that fast, if they

00:13:44--> 00:14:28

behave with us in a manner that pushes us to our limits if they instigate us. And that instigation will lead to the sanctity of the fast being broken. This is the only time you say in the slide, that indeed I am fasting. So you expose yourself only for the sake of the fast. But generally the fast is something that is kept a secret and hidden. Of course, Ramadan is something known peak through expectation, we expect that we are fasting but truly, and really how many of us can prove beyond doubt that everyone in this venue is fasting right now? Nobody can. Nobody can. You can have a good idea. But you cannot prove beyond doubt. As you can when someone prays and you've seen them pray,

00:14:28--> 00:14:56

you can prove beyond doubt because your senses testify to them having prayed but this is different to fasting only Allah subhanho wa Taala truly knows. And Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights the veneration or the the acts that depict our veneration of him for he says Tharaka Paramahansa Shara bahawa shahada who the agilely that this person has left their food left their drink left the desires for who? Only for Allah subhanho wa Taala they did it because Allah told them to do it.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

Right. So Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

Allah has kept the rewards specific to him from him to his life. Because there is no

00:15:08--> 00:15:23

manifestation. When you observe this act of worship as you find with soccer, as you find with Hajj, as you find with Salah right Subhanallah it's a unique act and Allah subhanahu Uttara has unique rewards for it. So

00:15:24--> 00:15:26

we venerate Allah.

00:15:27--> 00:15:38

And we do this through knowing him. And to knowing him, do we love Him. And when we truly love Him, do we want to do for him. We don't need that. We don't need to be convinced we don't do need to be

00:15:39--> 00:16:05

motivated. The motivation comes from within Subhanallah there's nothing more powerful, my dear sustain Islam and my dear mother in Islam, the knowing Allah subhanho wa taala, and especially those who are mothers, and sometimes you become overwhelmed by motherhood, and wife hood, running a home and raising your kids. And sometimes Subhanallah you're blessed with twins, and that makes the load.

00:16:07--> 00:16:39

multiplied. Sometimes you bless the children in close proximity, you haven't feed finished the cycling of one child and your body is put to another test. And you feel the stress of life due to this. Maybe you have a child who is having sleepless nights during those formative months of this. They're not a settled child. They're an unsettled child. And now you're another child is growing within you. And then Ramadan comes and Ramadan goes and another one comes in another oven goes and you haven't managed to Subhanallah capture

00:16:40--> 00:16:52

those Ramadan's and you feel like the fasts and are piling up, and 30 become 60 and 60, might become 90 and and you feel like the caves or the walls are caving in SubhanAllah.

00:16:55--> 00:17:39

You know, what do you do at this juncture, that you motivate yourself how? By reminding yourself of your love for Allah subhanho wa Taala and the basis for that love, that is knowledge of who he is. And you remember his names and attributes that some more specific to your circumstance, such as man, as we discussed, and Rahim as we discussed from the names of Allah Slowbeef and every night we are discussing lessons from Surah Yusuf, how does use of describe Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah after five decades or more of being tested? Subhanallah How does he describe Allah right at the end after all of his tests, he says, Indeed, my Lord is Latif autumn, he wills, his gentle with whom he will

00:17:39--> 00:18:16

Subhanallah that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves us more than our own mothers could, and he loves your child more than you could say, if Allah subhanahu wa taala puts you through a journey that this is from him being gentle over you, knowing what's good for you, just as a parent would do that which a child may find bitter. But a parent knows that this is good for my chat. So this is how we know Allah. And then naturally, when we know Allah, we learn about Allah also through his legislation, right? It's important study enough to love Allah. And we don't know his legislation, how He wants us to be, as as I said earlier,

00:18:18--> 00:18:59

we have to know how he wants us to be and we know this through his legislation. So we know Allah, and we know what he wants from us. And then we enable ourselves accordingly. And this is the middle way where you join between knowledge and action. Some people they have knowledge, they know Allah has legislation, but they don't know Allah, such as those who received Allah subhanahu NS anger, as Allah tells us in Surah Fatiha Radiol Mahieu be it him upon Allah, that we seek protection in Allah from being amongst those who Allah subhana who tell us anger fell upon. And the scholars of Tafseer highlight that it fell up on a people who knew Allah's laws, but they didn't follow those laws. Why

00:18:59--> 00:19:03

didn't they follow those laws? Ultimately it boils down to them not knowing Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:19:05--> 00:19:46

And then comes the Nation of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Ummah, the the Ummah, the middle ummah. Okay then because you're uneconomic and wasa. Allah says, we've made you a middle nation, a nation that knows Allah and knows Allah's legislation. We're not stuck on one, you know, on one side of the scale, we don't just know him and don't know how to worship him. Or we don't just know how to worship people don't know him, but we manifest our knowledge of Him and our knowledge of how he wants us to worship Subhanallah so this is a pertinent statement by Ibn Taymiyyah Rahim Allah. So as we said, we know Allah, that's the first part and how do we know him through number

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

one, or number two, the Sunnah. Number three, the fifth chakra, or you could say the fifth row first because we born with it, and then also different core pondering over him. And we also learn about Allah's legislation. And notice

00:20:00--> 00:20:17

After sources of Allah's legislation, is the Quran and the Sunnah and the consensus of the Ummah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. These are three references for learning the legislation of Allah subhanho wa taala. And then the tertiary branches, such as the s, which is analogy, and

00:20:19--> 00:21:01

the other elements found in the books of jurisprudence methodology, that which no doubt falls within the category of the azul, the principles that the scholars of the Ummah have differed over in some capacity, but in terms of what they have agreed upon, there are three sources in terms of learning about Allah legislation, the Quran, the Sunnah, and the Iijima of the Ummah, the consensus of the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And in no time, Rahim Allah says that if Allah Almighty wants goodness for his slave, then Allah subhanahu Allah opens his slaves heart towards accepting the names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala and also having a greater

00:21:01--> 00:21:38

understanding of them Subhan Allah, so perhaps this is a sign that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants goodness for you all, for you all requested this series hon Allah and thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for it, don't just think of it as a good idea. Don't just think of it as some great idea that somebody thought of that will bring value to the Ramadan, but see it for what it is that perhaps Allah inspired you, because Allah was good for you. And those who saw the announcement and chose to attend that Allah subhanho wa Taala inspired you because Allah subhanho wa Taala once goodness for you, and why should we recognize this because this is a means of thanking Allah. This is a means of

00:21:38--> 00:22:10

thanking, thanking Allah is connected to knowledge as well. See, we spoke about love last week being a substantial emotion. thanking Allah is a substantial action, and anything substantial is connected to knowledge. If you don't know what Allah has done for you, how can you be thankful? How can you truly be thankful? If you don't recognize what Allah has done for you? How can you truly thank him? Right? You can thank Allah for being here. But if you know that you are here because Allah has chosen you now you thank Allah for choosing you as well.

00:22:12--> 00:22:30

And this thanks is important for the slave of Allah. Because Allah says Elaine Shakur to Mala as he then Nico. If you are grateful to Allah subhanahu atta Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will increase for you. Meaning he will choose you more often. If you thank him, if you show him that you are grateful for what is done

00:22:31--> 00:22:36

to you and for you. Then Allah subhanahu Atana will do more for you.

00:22:37--> 00:23:03

Not that Allah needs you to thank him for You for Him to do more. But Allah subhanho wa Taala has set his system lay in Chicago to as he then the uncondition of your thankfulness, you will find Allah subhanahu tireless increment over and increase for you to Hannah, it's easy for him. Allah's treasures are vast, as we learn in the Hadith could see that if God Almighty Allah, He took every

00:23:04--> 00:23:50

creation from the son of Adam, and from Jin kind from the beginning of them till the last of them and gave them their heartfelt desires. They selves felt desires. It will not decrease from Allah's Bounty, except the decrease experience when you dip a sewing needle into the ocean and you lift that needle from the ocean. What do you take away from the ocean? A droplet perhaps. But before you can lift that needle, that droplet is going to fall back into the ocean you've taken nothing from Allah has dominion from Allah has kingdom. That's how rich Allah subhanho wa Taala is. That's how evil Allah subhanho wa Taala is and Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says that He is Allah honey and Hemet.

00:23:50--> 00:24:32

He is the absolutely perpetually rich one, the owner of all praise al Hamid as we say in Surah Fatiha Alhamdulillah all these praises belong to Him, He is the owner of it, we say our hamdulillah because he is Al Hamid, the owner of all praise and is the owner of all praise because he gifts without measure subhanho wa has had no one can be praised like him and anyone who you think because of any goodness they afford you or dispatch towards you. You know truly and ultimately, the bottom line for it is it came from Allah subhanahu attack, because even their ability to help you and give to you is because Allah blessed him with the ability to do so. So really ultimately who has helped

00:24:32--> 00:24:59

you and who has blessed you? It is Allah subhanho attack and this is the recognition we need of our Lord. And this takes me back to this idea of Taleem to Aleem, we exist to venerate Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is where Allah says Allah in covered them in either be they shed it, if you are ungrateful than the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala Sofia Subhanallah if you're ungrateful, then his punishment is severe because you are created to venerate him, and you ungratefulness go

00:25:00--> 00:25:51

was against that idea and comfort and disbelief is from is the greatest show of ungratefulness the greatest show of not being grateful for Allah subhanahu itad as gifts over, bringing you out of existence, and this time Allah, the punishment for Cofer is Johanna. Carly, then via Subhan Allah, being dispatched to the Hellfire forever Subhanallah in eternity May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us from coup for all its forms. Obviously we ask Allah today upon Amen, so that we saved from a cafe at Hardy, which is the co founder of belief, we ask Allah to protect us from that. And we also ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada to protect us from Akufo language and cultural Amelie, disbelief in action,

00:25:52--> 00:26:34

which doesn't take a person out of the fold, but brings them very close towards being taken out of the fourth marriage. Why? As a message to you all that insha Allah as you progress, your knowledge development together in your unique circumstances, and like I said, I understand the uniqueness of Melbourne, and your access to knowledge. And that's why I highlighted to you all that I do, try and come when I can. But in your own curriculum, be sure be sure that you have lessons of aqidah they are in pain, be sure that you have lessons of Akkadian that you learn what entails and call for alarmingly, what entails disbelief through actions through speech, we must learn this. We shouldn't

00:26:34--> 00:26:45

take it for granted. Because Chopin is constantly knocking at the door trying to make us forget what constitutes Cofer. Japan is constantly knocking at the door trying to make us

00:26:47--> 00:26:55

forget or trying to desensitize us, from the sensitivities we develop from our knowledge of Islamic theology anarchy.

00:26:56--> 00:27:23

It starts somewhere, it starts always start somewhere. Right? It can't just make you forget like that. But sometimes forgetfulness comes from you forgetting the sensitivity, the sensitivity level, the sensitivity setting that is needed. SubhanAllah. And I think for those now, we live in a social media age. Yes, you are all on the eastern part of the globe, and you start your day before the rest of the globe. But I'm sure you are aware of the fifth day of Ramadan, currently

00:27:24--> 00:27:38

in the West, because of a particular person who has taken a high seating in office, and some of his means that was used to get

00:27:39--> 00:27:41

that was used during the campaign.

00:27:42--> 00:28:01

And whether this is a praiseworthy matter or not a praiseworthy matter. And there's long debates now, why these debates boil down to the sensitivity meters, everybody's sensitivity meter is different. Some people are willing to go the distance to share justifications for somebody's

00:28:03--> 00:28:18

blatant representation of the Sharia in a manner that is unbefitting. And some people's sensitivity meters might be too high or are said to be too high. For they have taken an approach that is seen as extreme as well. I don't want to use this as a means of

00:28:19--> 00:28:57

taking us into that discussion. And if you don't know about it, say Alhamdulillah and don't use your Ramadan to look for it. Focus on the Quran and focus on the on the Sunnah. Focus on UKM focus on your fasting focus on the Dhikr of Allah subhanho wa Taala after Ramadan, you can you can look into it if you if you wish to. And not look into it for the sake of it. But look into it maybe as a case study for your Arcada studies as well. And how the discussion of we need to have a lesson on a key that can never be a lame one. Some people say you know what, every time we say what should we study? What lesson can we have? If people say oh, we need to have an Akita listen to us, we know La Ilaha

00:28:57--> 00:29:16

illa Allah, we know of it, we know of it. It's not just about knowing of it. It's knowing about it. And we know about it by comparing ourselves to the ideals set by it. And that's the division a slave needs. Right? That's the revision a slave needs. We have Subhana wa Taala grant us the understanding. I mean, yorubaland me, my dearest Sisters in Islam.

00:29:17--> 00:29:18

As we

00:29:20--> 00:29:44

introduced last week, we said that we will discuss the names that fit within the genre of compassion and mercy. And thus we took our Rahmani r Rahim. And we also said that from the names of Allah of alpha and alpha, and Allah for so in sha Allah for today's session, we will what remains be the later Allah.

00:29:48--> 00:29:57

We will discuss these three names of Allah subhanho wa taala. Just before that just before that, do you have any questions from what I've shared thus far?

00:30:00--> 00:30:09

It might be an introduction and a long introduction but a connected introduction and unnecessary one. Are there any questions? Anything you need me to repeat?

00:30:11--> 00:30:21

Okay. So when I when I ask you next week Inshallah, inshallah you will be, you'll be charged up, your batteries will be charged in the hands will go up insha Allah Insha Allah, any questions?

00:30:23--> 00:30:24

Okay. Yes.

00:30:27--> 00:30:28

I guess the Mercy

00:30:30--> 00:30:35

has refined, because I think a certain things that really focuses on

00:30:37--> 00:30:40

that kinds of, and so overlook the genitals

00:30:42--> 00:30:43

look, the Overlook sorry.

00:30:45--> 00:30:47

The Mercy of Allah Allah,

00:30:48--> 00:30:57

very strict, very rigid. And then I guess, and then we have the other side, but there's some people who just look at the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. And they just focus on that

00:30:58--> 00:30:59


00:31:01--> 00:31:27

Like, how does one find a balance between the two, that balance is no doubt being in the middle, and not connecting your salvation to a group, but connecting your salvation to the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as taught you, not just by knowledgeable people, but knowledgeable and responsible scholars. It's very important, do not attach your salvation to a group do not attach your salvation to

00:31:29--> 00:32:14

you know, a movement when we talk about the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is a methodology. Right? When people talk about the way of the pious before us, the pious predecessors, the salah for slyly they talk about the way, it's not a group that they that historically has been called to have spoken about. But historically, what has been spoken about is a is a mechanism is a mannerism is a methodology. And that that is what historically was always spoken about and called to. So I highlight that because you mentioned groups, so never, ever attach your salvation to the way of a group, but rather what you know, from knowledgeable and responsible

00:32:14--> 00:32:52

Islamic scholarship. And if you don't have that local, then Alhamdulillah, the internet is a blessing for you, because you can search for that global. But the point is, it must, the scholarship must be knowledgeable and responsible. If you see someone with a lot of knowledge, but he's using social media, to pitch ideas that shouldn't be pitched on social media, but should be pitched in a classroom environment, in a specific way, shouldn't be left to open ended interpretations by people of all walks of life, this is a sign that this person might have knowledge, but isn't responsible. And if a person is responsible with the knowledge, then that shows that there's a deficiency in

00:32:52--> 00:33:33

their knowledge, that shows there's a deficiency in their knowledge, if you see that you have a scholar who is famous for, or he's known to be a scholar, but famous for always pitching ideas that goes against the grain goes against what the majority of knowledgeable responsible Islamic scholarship is upon. And they set for themselves this as a norm, everything that is, is different, they make an issue out of it, and they globalize it, they say I have to say this because people are leaving Islam, so many youth are leaving Islam, and they pitch these ideas without any solid concrete evidence, they can't pitch to you the stats that validate the reasons for doing so, this

00:33:33--> 00:34:14

shows you that they may be well read, but they're not responsible with the reading. And this is this is a red flag, if you see someone who, you know, puts themselves out there, but they don't have a legacy of being connected to teach us to responsible Islamic scholarship above them. And they don't make it a practice of theirs to mention what they been taught by the teachers and mentioned who the teachers are, and choose to keep their teachers hidden. Because they this is a sign that they feel that now they adhere above those before and they don't want to be defined by those before this is a red flag. These are flags that should stand out and make you realize that you know what, in this day

00:34:14--> 00:35:00

and age, we got to be extra careful. And there are other alternatives. There are other alternatives if you if you see a person who focuses their time on teaching you what is from voodoo law, which is it's not core to your success, but he's its tertiary it's from the from the secondary or post secondary tiers of knowledge and that is the focus of the instruction towards you and this again is another red flag. So, what is the balance the balance is choosing responsible, knowledgeable Islamic scholarship scholarship that close to a methodology, not a group and through that inshallah you will find the balance you will find the middle way you will find

00:35:00--> 00:35:22

In the Middle Way, because knowledgeable responsible Islamic Scholarship is a scholarship that is based upon the core knowledge of Islamic theology, the core knowledge of Islamic jurisprudence, the core knowledge of jurisprudence methodology, and these are all Islamic sciences. And when a person has a good spectrum of knowledge

00:35:23--> 00:35:33

across the sciences, then that balance is inspired upon them by Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. Okay, any other questions?

00:35:35--> 00:35:37

Okay, the name half

00:35:39--> 00:35:42

the name of half my dear Sisters in Islam

00:35:44--> 00:35:45

stems from

00:35:47--> 00:35:49

the root letters of alpha

00:35:50--> 00:36:04

the root letters for aura and the name alpha alpha is upon the scale alpha is upon the scale alpha and Farrell in the Arabic language

00:36:06--> 00:36:07


00:36:09--> 00:36:13

the subject of a sentence the doer of an action

00:36:14--> 00:36:21

Okay, so I'm sitting on a chair, so I am jealous. Jealous is upon the Arabic scale

00:36:22--> 00:36:23


00:36:26--> 00:37:03

for those behind you writing so you your category categories upon the scale fagg, you writing, you're doing an action, the one that doesn't action is the doer of a verb, the doer of an action, the doer of an action, generally fits upon the scale. alhfam So Allah is Allah. Allah is Allah Hoffer. So he is the doer of an action and that action is the action of forgiveness. The action of forgiveness, Allah is the One Who forgives. And in the Arabic language, the doer of a verb,

00:37:05--> 00:37:05


00:37:07--> 00:37:10

Dinner denotes the one who is doing an action

00:37:11--> 00:37:15

for the period that that action is done for. So it has

00:37:17--> 00:37:20

a form of continuity attached to the meaning. Like if I'm sitting,

00:37:22--> 00:37:35

then I'm sitting for as long as I'm sitting. Right, which means the description of Jad is applies to me for as long as I am. I am sitting. Does that make sense? Right, so there's a level of continuity in terms of the meaning.

00:37:36--> 00:38:06

Right meaning, if I say so and so is sitting, I mean, they are sitting for as long as they're sitting, even if it lasts hours, I don't have to keep saying they're sitting and now they're sitting and now they're sitting, right this description continues with them for as long as they are sitting until they stop sitting obviously. So we see a level of continuity in the meaning. I know this is a bit of theory, but I want you to appreciate this name of Allah, Allah raffia by understanding the theory, okay. So Allah is Allah Hafiz. Right, this is

00:38:08--> 00:38:20

a name from the names of Allah. It is not just a description, it is a name from the names Allah subhanho wa Taala has named himself as rough as them, the one who forgives our sins.

00:38:23--> 00:38:27

Of after as the one who forgives our, our sins.

00:38:28--> 00:38:29


00:38:30--> 00:38:42

in the Arabic language, words that are built upon the root of our Farah, now I'm advancing the discussion and we finished the scale discussion. Let's go to the root letters, words that are built upon

00:38:43--> 00:38:49

the root of afara. They generally denote the meaning of something being covered,

00:38:51--> 00:39:08

and something being protected. So it's not just a covering, but it's a covering through which protection is created, or use me covering through which protection is created. And I'll give you a practical example. The helmet, the helmet,

00:39:10--> 00:39:16

the one that is used during war, and the one that is used when you riding a motorcycle is called mirror.

00:39:17--> 00:39:18

Mirror. Farah.

00:39:20--> 00:39:37

I want you to pay attention to the letters in this word, mirror for Aurora. Can you see in it there's a ha and ufer an aurora mirror for Aurora. milk or soy milk Faraj is a name that is built upon a route and that route

00:39:38--> 00:39:59

entails a rough IRA, the same route letters as raffia. The same route taxes as a referral. So Miss vara is a helmet What does a helmet do? It covers your head in a manner that protects it. It's a covering through which protection is gained. Do you see that? That when you wear a helmet, you protect your skull. You protect your

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

Head, you protect your brain. Not so that's what a helmet is therefore. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is Allah

00:40:09--> 00:40:14

which means ALLAH forgives. And it means he forgives the forgiveness

00:40:15--> 00:40:39

or a forgiveness through which your protection is secured. He forgives you a forgiveness through which your protection is secured. How by covering your sin. He covers it. Remember we said a covering that brings about protection. So Allah subhanho wa Taala he covers your sin in a way that protects you.

00:40:41--> 00:40:43

It's a covered sin.

00:40:45--> 00:40:46

He hides your sin.

00:40:48--> 00:41:03

And that's why it's a major sin to expose the sins of other people. A major sin, a major and a great reward for hiding the sins of other people. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said man Cetara was the man the one who covers the mistakes of a believer.

00:41:04--> 00:41:07

Allah subhanho wa Taala will cover him on the day of care.

00:41:08--> 00:41:24

Allah subhanho wa Taala will take you to account privately, not publicly, won't take you to account publicly, everybody can then say subhanallah we thought this person was like this. Look at them, because they used to do we used to think they better than us. Allah will protect you on the Day of Korea.

00:41:25--> 00:41:33

He will hide your sins in this life and the next largest study of Korea mostly in this life, He will protect you. All of us have demons in our cupboards Allah when was that?

00:41:34--> 00:41:38

Our wife knows things about her husband that nobody knows her husband knows things about

00:41:39--> 00:41:47

his wife that nobody knows. But they are the best for each other who knows the best will let them and to the best will learn Allah describes

00:41:48--> 00:42:04

the marriage as a covering as clothing, that he is clothing for her. And she is clothing for him. Right? Why? What does clothing do? It covers our defects in a way that protects us not so not so that's what happens.

00:42:05--> 00:42:38

Subhanallah obviously, the levers here in the Quran is talking about more because as we know marriage is also a means of protecting the taqwa of each other with the best with tuckaway. Danica said Allah describes taco as the best as a form of clothing as well. So she is a form of clothing for him. And he is a form of clothing for her. She covers his sins, and ask him to fear Allah, and he covers her sins, and asks her to fear Allah. And as such, they are protectors to each other, they are clothing for each other, they protect each other in a manner that preserves them.

00:42:40--> 00:42:47

Woman cetera Muslim and whoever covers a believer, it entails covering a believer in this life and the next.

00:42:49--> 00:42:52

Covering a believer in this life and and the next.

00:42:54--> 00:43:09

Allah will cover you in this life and the next if you cover for a believer in this life, Allah will cover for you in this life and the next if you cover for a believer in this life, Subhan Allah, and how in need are we in Allah Subhana Allah to Allah preserving us and not exposing us?

00:43:11--> 00:43:16

Everyone who has good thoughts about us, they only have good thoughts about us because of that, which they don't know.

00:43:18--> 00:43:18

Of us.

00:43:20--> 00:44:02

Let's be honest, people know a lot about us. But there's a lot that they don't know about us. That's the reality, depending on the level of proximity that they are from us. And even the husband and wife scenario. A wife doesn't know everything about her husband, and her husband doesn't know everything about his wife, there will be things that a female will keep close to her and not exposed to her husband. And her husband will keep close to him and not exposed to his wife. But Allah subhanho wa Taala knows everything. La ilaha illa Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah, Latifah you any meaningful coffee and nothing can be hidden from him. Nothing hidden can be hidden from him, even

00:44:02--> 00:44:13

though that moves during the darkest of nights under the biggest boulder Ilaha illa Allah, Allah knows its movements. Allah sees its movements.

00:44:14--> 00:44:16

Allah sees its movements.

00:44:17--> 00:44:20

Allah sees its movements Subhanallah

00:44:23--> 00:45:00

Ilaha illa Allah so at the knowledge of Allah does for us Brothers and Sisters in Islam right. And you see, as you learn more about Allah, what does it do for you brings perspective so much perspective, so much perspective and that is why no one will be able to reach the level of the Sahab. As always, this question is always asked that Subhanallah we hear, you know, like Imam Shafi is to read 60 Quran in Ramadan, a completion in the day and the completion at night. We don't hear this during the time of the sahaba. We hear from the time of the tambourine those who used to pray Fajr for countless years with the wuhou of Asia Subhan Allah that they were in a coma

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

constant state of worship throughout the night but we don't hear this, what the Sahaba but here's the question My dear sister and mother in Islam,

00:45:07--> 00:45:19

how come nobody will reach the level of the Sahaba in terms of the love that Allah has for them, and the and, and the station that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given them How come

00:45:22--> 00:45:34

it's because of the hearts it's because of their knowledge of Allah. How they knew Allah, how they knew Allah, they knew Allah at a level and capacity that no one after them.

00:45:36--> 00:46:16

Whatever enjoy. No one will have the means to know Allah like they knew Allah subhanho wa Taala and they had the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with them. They were at the beginning of Islam. They witnessed Allah's miracles descending, they witnessed Allah's Khorat descending, they saw firsthand where Islam was, and how weak it was. And how Allah's promise came through. They witnessed it, they knew Allah in a manner Subhanallah that you and I cannot. And sometimes we see this with new Muslims, that they Subhanallah apply themselves in the religion in a manner that is superior to those who are born Muslims.

00:46:17--> 00:46:20

Is it yourself? Subhan Allah, how is this possible?

00:46:21--> 00:46:36

Yeah, because they know Allah in a manner that you haven't yet reached, because of the ignorance that they came from. They appreciate the guidance that they've received. They've accepted it, they've captured it, they've preserved it, they've protected it.

00:46:38--> 00:46:46

The venerated it in a manner that you are yet to do. Why? Because they've tasted Allah in a way that you get to taste online, you take it for granted.

00:46:48--> 00:46:49

You take it for granted.

00:46:50--> 00:47:16

Subhanallah and that's just because of circumstance. Of course. We don't wish that we we enter a period of Jamelia to appreciate Allah no Allah's favor upon us is he saved us from those levels of Jaya Helia but then we should beg Allah to bless us with the knowledge that allows us to transcend the realm of knowing who Allah is. So Allah is Allah is the One who covers your sin in a manner that protects you.

00:47:18--> 00:47:26

And a sign of that covering is his legislation. Like we said he's made it haram and a serious sin for you to expose the sin of a believer.

00:47:28--> 00:47:51

And he's made a great reward for the one who covers the sins of a believer by preserving you in this life and on the day of Korea by not exposing you on the Day of PM i May Allah protect us all that would be punishment in and of itself. And people at the end of the day, sometimes they live their life in a way that the only thing that they have is their integrity. And if that if that integrity is is eroded

00:47:53--> 00:48:20

is or if that integrity explodes? What do they have? Subhanallah that not only do they enter the Hellfire but they enter in a disgraced way Subhan Allah far beyond our ability to describe Leila, may Allah protect us, may Allah protect us. So Allah is an orphan. But as Allah is Allah here, he's also Allah far and look afar upon the scale Alpha add a look afar upon the scale Alpha ad, and

00:48:22--> 00:48:35

names upon the scale Alpha al have a unique meaning, because not only does it denote the doer of an action, but it denotes also the extent of the action.

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


00:48:40--> 00:48:41

So this gives it a unique meaning.

00:48:42--> 00:48:45

So Allah is Allah, they're the one who forgives.

00:48:47--> 00:49:34

And as such, if we take that understanding to alpha and I look afar, and we understand that this is connected to extent, then we learn that Allah far doesn't just teach us that ALLAH forgives. But it teaches us how he forgives, and how does Allah forgive? Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives after forgiving and he forgives after forgiving, and he forgives after forgiving, and he forgives after forgiving. He is the perpetual forgive. He's not just the one who forgives, but he's the one who continuously for gifts. He forgives you for sending and forgives you again after forgiving you even if the sin that you just did is the same as the sin that he just forgave you for panela

00:49:35--> 00:49:37

imagine that alpha

00:49:39--> 00:49:43

and who knows another name of Allah upon the scheme of upon the scale of alpha and

00:49:45--> 00:49:49

who can think of another name of Allah upon the scale of Alpha Phi

00:49:53--> 00:49:55

Alpha hap sent

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

I sent and why are Wahab

00:50:00--> 00:50:23

Allah is Allah because but Allah is Allah Wahab he's not it's not just the one who gifts is the one who perpetually gifts. Who not just the one who best Tao is the one who perpetually best house. And that's why, to my knowledge, there is no name of allah known as Allah hip, but only Allah will hap because from always he's always perpetually giving al Wahhab. Okay, who knows another name?

00:50:24--> 00:50:25


00:50:26--> 00:50:30

Al Jabbar al Jabbar now,

00:50:32--> 00:50:33

okay, another name

00:50:35--> 00:50:50

or reserach. Isn't? It Barcalounger fix now why Nico rizek. Want to perpetually provides sent another name and HELOC, a HELOC. Allah is not just a Holic.

00:50:52--> 00:50:57

A reserve Allah is a Rajat and his Razak. We said with Al Wahab is Allah hap

00:50:58--> 00:51:08

yes he gifts but from his name is Allah have because of the nature of Allah gifts when Allah gifts you is never ever just one gift coming down. It's always a plethora of gifts. So you can only be a little hat

00:51:09--> 00:51:12

or Rogic or Razak Asante.

00:51:14--> 00:51:16

Refer to someone say alpha.

00:51:18--> 00:51:20

Alpha, he said look afar,

00:51:21--> 00:51:23

we discussing Alpha.

00:51:24--> 00:51:32

But Allah Allah, Allah is alcoholic, the creator This is a name from his names and his alcoholic. What does that have to mean? The one who is perpetually creating

00:51:33--> 00:51:51

an ad I spoke to you about the moments we live through every heartbeat is a moment who is creating those moments. And Kolak Subhanallah every blink of your eyelid is a moment who is creating those moments, Allah, everything you see.

00:51:52--> 00:52:12

Everything you see for every millisecond that you see it is a new moment, who is creating those moments? Allah and then we take a picture of a moment that is just capturing a moment from the moments of Allah is Allah Haluk to help you understand Subhanallah how amazing Allah is beyond our ability to describe an imagined can't describe an Imagineer.

00:52:14--> 00:52:20

Can't describe any magic. You can't the mind doesn't have the physical ability to describe an imagined of law.

00:52:21--> 00:52:58

And that's why some of the questions that people ask they are non sequiturs, meaning these are questions that go against logic. Right? When people went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said, okay, so you told us about Allah and Allah created everything who created Allah, this is an illogical question. It's an illogical question. Why I asked this question when your brain cannot fathom the extent of Allah and thus Allah evils cool who Allahu Ahad, says Allah, the one in the unique Allah Who Summit, he is the absolutely independent one upon who everything in existence is dependent.

00:52:59--> 00:53:11

If he is totally independent and not dependent on anything, then it's an illogical question to ask who created Allah? Where did Allah come from? Because if he came from something,

00:53:12--> 00:53:20

or something gave birth to him, he would be dependent on it. Allah who somebody is absolutely independent. Let me add it, while I'm youlet

00:53:21--> 00:53:24

I think gave birth to him, nor did he give birth to anything.

00:53:25--> 00:53:32

He doesn't need to have a son for his validation. Human beings need that. Don't think about Allah as you think about yourself.

00:53:35--> 00:53:42

Don't think about Allah as you think about yourself, you might say it's from the completeness of life to have a child, but it's from the completeness of Allah not

00:53:44--> 00:53:57

to different circumstances situation and reality is the creator, not the created, cannot think about the Creator using the lens that is used when you think of the created. Allah is Haluk.

00:54:01--> 00:54:05

So Allah is Allah far, the one who forgives you after forgiving.

00:54:08--> 00:54:24

And in the authentic son that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us about a slave who sins and this slave turns to Allah subhanahu atter Allah and the slave says Yara be Oh my Lord as an app to them. Beneful clearly I have sinned, forgive me. I have sinned, so forgive me.

00:54:26--> 00:54:30

And Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, if you're the one who forgives,

00:54:31--> 00:54:46

He forgives his slave. He tells his angels to bear witness that the slave is forgiven. And then the slave after some time since again, and he turns to Allah and He says, Yeah, Rob, be authentic to them. Ben fervidly Oh, my Lord, I have sinned. Forgive me.

00:54:47--> 00:54:59

So he turned first two and a half. Chapin might have visited the slave and told the slave that you are useless. You should be ashamed. You disobeyed Allah. There is no hope for you

00:55:00--> 00:55:12

But the slave reminds himself or herself. That No, I'm not gonna fall to this whisper of Shavon because there has to be hope Allah taught me that he's referred, he's the one who forgive since I'm going to attend to him and I'm gonna seek forgiveness.

00:55:13--> 00:55:22

But then you fall into the sin again, after you tend to have her, you sin again. And she often comes to you and says, You have no hope. You should be ashamed of yourself.

00:55:23--> 00:55:28

You sinned and then you tend to have an affair and He forgave you and then you send again.

00:55:30--> 00:55:41

The slave pushes back that was poor shaper. By reminding himself or herself that not only is Allah Allah awful, but He is Allah far, the one who forgives after forgiving.

00:55:43--> 00:55:59

So you don't lose hope in Allah and you turn back to Allah and you ask Allah to forgive you. Despite what's happened, you ask Allah to Allah, you are alpha. You are a lot of far. Why should I feel ashamed of returning back to you and asking you to forgive me? That is who you are, you forgive after forgiving.

00:56:04--> 00:56:07

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says and then the slave sins again.

00:56:10--> 00:56:12

And when the slave sins again

00:56:14--> 00:56:23

the slave tends to Allah knowing that Allah is a far the one who perpetually forgives, He forgives after forgiving and says Yara BFF to them been fulfilled Lee Oh my Lord, I have sinned. So forgive me.

00:56:25--> 00:56:27

What is Allah subhanahu Attallah do here?

00:56:28--> 00:56:39

Does he forgive his slave for slipping three times? We all know the three strikes and you're out. Universal, worldly formula.

00:56:40--> 00:56:55

Now, nowadays, not even three times one time, if we lose trust in people immediately handle loss the nature of of the age that we're in Swan strike, and you out what does Allah do here? Does Allah forgive his slave?

00:56:57--> 00:57:03

Yes, yes, of course. But not only does he do this. Remember, we discussed Eliza Rahman and Rahim.

00:57:05--> 00:57:27

And these are the names of Allah that we haven't discussed. But we know that Allah has many names. Allah subhanho wa Taala instructs his angels. And he tells his angels, that here is a slave of mine who recognizes that he's sinned and recognizes that he has a lord that is capable over him, a lord that is capable over

00:57:31--> 00:57:33

but he's also a slave that recognizes

00:57:34--> 00:57:38

that his Lord is the one who forgives and the one who forgives after forgiving.

00:57:39--> 00:57:42

So bear witness that whatever my slave does from today's forgiven

00:57:44--> 00:57:46

Subhan Allah Subhan Allah

00:57:48--> 00:57:55

Allahu Akbar, may Allah make us from, from this group or this group of people who receive,

00:57:56--> 00:58:15

who are blessed, to have a conversation in the heavens happen about them, between Allah and His angels, and this is no doubt for the person who hates the sin, doesn't plan this and falls into the same and hates it and loves Allah and hates this and because of the love for Allah and never loses hope in the Mercy of Allah.

00:58:16--> 00:58:22

May Allah make us from them? I mean, unless of Allah Subhana Allah

00:58:24--> 00:58:37

the one who perpetually forgives, He forgives you after forgiving and then Allah is Allah for and we will take this as the last name today. So there's some completion Ellika food, alcohol food upon this Arabic scale alpha

00:58:38--> 00:58:58

and names upon the Arabic scale Alpha Oh, and by the way, all the names of Allah are upon emphasize scales, superlative scales, what we call superlative scales for those who study the Arabic language. CFL mobila They all superlatives, right? They in the best way the best form upon the best understanding is

00:59:00--> 00:59:08

to move okay, it's blocking the next door. Okay, there's a car blocking next door an extra driveway and

00:59:10--> 00:59:16

he's calling his wife okay and Sustiva for the mental series calling. Okay.

00:59:19--> 00:59:21

You are upon another call with Allah you can let him know

00:59:26--> 00:59:27


00:59:28--> 00:59:34

Allahu, Allah food is upon the Arabic scale, alpha.

00:59:36--> 00:59:40

Now, names upon this scale, denote

00:59:42--> 00:59:43

a form of occupation,

00:59:45--> 00:59:50

a form of occupation names upon the scale, denote a form of occupation

00:59:54--> 00:59:59

a form of occupation SubhanAllah. Now clearly, if you think that Allah is Allah

01:00:00--> 01:00:05

Fear and referral refers to the one who covers in a protective way. And then he perpetually does it.

01:00:06--> 01:00:10

And now we have this name upon the scale that denotes an occupation. What does this teach?

01:00:12--> 01:00:40

It's one of the lights, it's so elaborated. To the extent that now you get the understanding that not only does Allah forgive, and not only does he perpetually forgive, but it's only Allah who can forgive. It's his occupation to forgive. It's Allah's occupation, to forgive La Ilaha illa Allah. Now, this brings a whole new level of hope to a person, a whole new level of hope to a person. Because

01:00:41--> 01:00:55

when you understand that Allah is Allah for, then you understand that no matter how many years you've engaged in sin, you've engaged in disobedience, you've engaged in maybe even being a disbeliever.

01:00:59--> 01:01:00

You still have hope.

01:01:01--> 01:01:06

There's always hope. Even if there are fleeting moments between you and death,

01:01:07--> 01:01:13

there is still hope. Why? Why? Because when you exercise that hope,

01:01:14--> 01:01:20

whose door will you be walking through the door of Allah for the one whose occupation is to forgive you?

01:01:22--> 01:01:41

Someone has an occupation to do something, your occupation is to cook and someone walks through your kitchen? What are they going to get after walking into your kitchen? A meal? Correct. Your occupation is to teach and someone walks into your classroom. What are they going to get after walking into your classroom?

01:01:44--> 01:02:11

Education, they're going to become more informed. Right? Your occupation is to teach Quran, and they walk into your classroom, what are they going to get from your classroom? Well, knowledge of the Quran, and so on and so forth. Allah's occupation, if we can describe it as this lack of better terms in the English language Subhanallah but I'm trying to make you feel the moment is to forgive, what are you going to get if you walk through the door of ALLAH for

01:02:14--> 01:02:14


01:02:16--> 01:02:16


01:02:18--> 01:02:18


01:02:20--> 01:02:22

now I asked you this question at this juncture?

01:02:23--> 01:02:27

How can one ever lose hope at the mercy of Allah?

01:02:29--> 01:02:35

That even the last moments of your life Allah reveals to you a name from his names, that gives you hope?

01:02:36--> 01:02:45

Even if you think I've been sitting for 60 years and 70 years and I'm closer to death than I am to life and what am I going to do? What am I? My books of deeds? Subhanallah what do they show?

01:02:46--> 01:02:53

You know, if I reach Allah subhanho wa Taala I want to have countless books of sins and how many books of good deeds am I going to have?

01:02:54--> 01:02:56

What am I scale is going to look like on the day of PM.

01:02:58--> 01:03:02

Right? You at the end of your life, Subhan Allah

01:03:03--> 01:03:10

and shaytan is attacking you and making you feel like you are hopeless. You are hopeless, Subhan Allah.

01:03:12--> 01:03:30

Allah reveals to you a name from his names to give you hope that He is Allah food upon the scale Alpha ol. A word upon the scale that denotes occupation. Like we said, if you walk through a teacher's door, expect to be taught. You walk through a cook's door expect to be fed.

01:03:33--> 01:03:39

You walk through a mother's door expect to be loved. Her occupation is to be a mother, what do you expect from a mother?

01:03:43--> 01:03:49

So if you walk through the door of another food expect to be forgiven, because his occupation is to forgive you. What hope?

01:03:50--> 01:03:50

I mean?

01:03:52--> 01:03:54

What despair can you be in?

01:03:57--> 01:04:00

What do you have to lose? Except Islam?

01:04:01--> 01:04:02

Even if you're on your deathbed,

01:04:03--> 01:04:18

except it before the soul reaches your heart of arise, last point of exit. What do you have to do? Walk to the Door of Allah for his occupation is to forgive. whoever walks through that door expects to be forgiven, and generally they

01:04:20--> 01:04:21

accept Islam.

01:04:22--> 01:04:53

If you're a Muslim, and you've lived a long life, in the disobedience of Allah Punja, hilly and ignorance, what do you have to lose? Don't let Chapin belittle you at that moment, don't let Chapin steal from you the opportunity before it's too late. Walk through the Door of Allah fool, the one whose occupation is to forgive, walk through that door and expect to be forgiven. Allah is Allah food, the one whose occupation is to forgive you. irrespective of which

01:04:54--> 01:04:57

tier of life you're living at the moment you tend to

01:04:59--> 01:04:59


01:05:00--> 01:05:06

spective of which tier of life you live in when you tend to him. Now as you can see my dearest mother and sustained Islam

01:05:08--> 01:05:10

Subhanallah any

01:05:11--> 01:05:13

sometimes you feel I need a break just to breathe,

01:05:14--> 01:05:19

feel the heartbeat go up because of you become overwhelmed and you learn about Allah subhanho wa Taala it's just overwhelming.

01:05:21--> 01:05:23

Overwhelming you think you need a drink of water but we fasting

01:05:28--> 01:05:29

Allah is Allah.

01:05:30--> 01:05:50

And Allah is Allah Hafiz. And Allah is Allah far. These are not just one name from the names of Allah, you might think this must be one name because they share the same route. The scholars of Islam have said these are three names from the names of Allah. If you memorize half, alpha, alpha, and alpha and alpha four, you have memorized three names from the names of Allah not one name.

01:05:52--> 01:06:33

You have memorized three names from the names of Allah, not just one name SubhanAllah. And the same with a Rahman and Rahim even though they share the same root letters, if you memorize these two names, that's five names, AR Rahman, AR Rahim, Allah alpha, alpha, alpha Furuya, five names already memorized, and not just memorize inshallah you understand them. So nothing more powerful than knowing a name, memorizing it and understanding its meaning. And this is where transformation comes from my dear sister and mother in Islam. Because when it comes to the names of Allah subhanho, wa taala, and whoever memorizes 99 names it will go to paradise. It's not just about regurgitating

01:06:33--> 01:06:42

names based on the strength of your memory. No, it's about living a life that is reflective of your knowledge of these names. Then you go to paradise? Yes, you will.

01:06:43--> 01:06:45

If you know that Allah is alfalfa,

01:06:47--> 01:07:27

and alfalfa and alfalfa and a half man mo Rahim, and you understand its meanings, and then you internalize these meanings. And then you think of yourself and your life and these meanings. And you ask yourself, How can I become a better Muslim? And believer? How can I develop my relationship with Allah based on this name, and these names that have led? Isn't this going to transform you? And make you worthy of Jannah? Indeed, it will. If you ask yourself Subhanallah I've learned these names of Allah subhanahu itad? How can I become a better person, in and of myself, as a result of these names that I've learned, get rid of greed, get rid of being egotistic get rid of jealousy, get rid of get

01:07:27--> 01:07:59

rid of these visa self traits of yours, that are negative traits, you better yourself because of these names, you know, of Allah subhanho wa taala. So you better your relationship with Allah. Now you better your relationship with yourself. So you transform as a result does that does this not make you worthy of Paradise? diaconal Jana, you will enter paradise? Indeed it will. Okay, you've learned these names of Allah. And then you think about the people around you? How can I become a better person with regards to the people around me?

01:08:01--> 01:08:14

How can I give them their rights in a better way? That I fixed my relationship with Allah because of the names of Allah that I know. I fixed my relationship with myself because of the names of Allah that I know how can I fix my relationship with

01:08:15--> 01:08:23

the creation of Allah because of the names of Allah that I know that Allah forgives, so can't I forgive those people who've wronged me, contact, forgive them.

01:08:24--> 01:08:31

And look how Allah forgives. So Can't I take from that and develop my thresholds for forgiveness.

01:08:33--> 01:09:07

Because of how generous Allah is with me in terms of his forgiveness over me, this is how we develop from the names and attributes of Allah, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says whoever adopts 99 names will enter Jannah I don't like to use the word whoever memorizes them because it's not a true translation. It's not just about memorizing 99 names and colors. I have a key to Jannah doesn't work like that. You memorize 99 names and then you'll be sinful throughout your life. And you go against the mandates of these names. What will that do for you? They will definitely

01:09:08--> 01:09:46

meaning if you pass away upon belief, then there's a real chance that you will have a meeting with the Hellfire unless ALLAH forgives you. Despite you knowing 99 names. Does that make sense? Religion is substantial. We always talk about substantiality connected to Islam. it's substantial. So when the Prophet says when I saw her, he doesn't mean whoever just memorizes them. He means who counts them, because this is from the meanings of Saha, he means who memorizes them, this is from the meanings of Assa who understands them, this is from the meanings of Assa Subhanallah if you if you if you go into the Arabic dictionary and look at this term

01:09:48--> 01:09:54

Manasa dehulled agenda this term, you will see all these meanings attributed to it

01:09:59--> 01:09:59


01:10:00--> 01:10:01

It It stems from

01:10:03--> 01:10:07

the letter hat and the letter solid and

01:10:08--> 01:10:11

a form of the letter Elif in the Arabic language.

01:10:13--> 01:10:24

But predominantly, this is not known by just by it's not known by just looking at these letters individually, but looking at how the Arabs used the words built upon this route.

01:10:27--> 01:10:29

So her side then yeah.

01:10:31--> 01:10:39

Okay, which through sort of a morphology takes on a form of the letter Alif

01:10:40--> 01:10:51

have sloth and yeah, these are the but we look at how the Arabs use the term. And when we look at the Arabs usage of the term we see Subhanallah they will say for example, foolin vous Hassan,

01:10:52--> 01:10:59

what do they mean by this? They go, this is a person of understanding, which teaches you so that means you need to understand

01:11:01--> 01:11:06

and also attached to the term is to count Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran that we've counted them accounting,

01:11:08--> 01:11:14

right, we've, we're meaning they've they fully counted for they're audited. So yes, you count the names of Allah.

01:11:16--> 01:11:42

This concept of Sahaja refers to protection, and protection is connected to memorization. So okay, you memorize these names as well. And that's what the common translation is, whoever memorizes them will that will enter Jannah. But what am I sharing with you here that this is not a sub, this is not the precise translation of the Hadith. The hadith is saying Indeed, for Allah is 99 names, whoever counts them, whoever memorizes them, Whoever understands them.

01:11:44--> 01:11:47

And understanding that develops their life because of them.

01:11:48--> 01:12:00

The halogen, they will interject and let's be honest, yeah. And whoever lives their life, with Allah and with themselves and with the creation of Allah, upon the mandates of 99 Names of Allah, where else can you enter?

01:12:01--> 01:12:04

Where else can you go? Besides Jen?

01:12:05--> 01:12:23

So these are three names from the names of Allah. And last week, we took two that makes it a total of five. And that brings us to the end of today's session, which is Accumulo Heron have Allahu Allah wa sallahu wa sallim wa barik ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Adjumani we do

01:12:24--> 01:12:29

have a few moments for us to take some of

01:12:32--> 01:12:42

some of your questions if you have any. So inshallah we'll move our session into the next session, the q&a session, just a couple of loving and reconciling among Allah subhanaw taala except from us our deeds me
