Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, I pray that this broadcast finds you while you are all in the best of health and experiencing the highest of Islamic spirits. May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our month thus far and bless whatever remains I mean, brothers and sisters in Islam. In tonight's story, the Imam recited from the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and and I want to share with you is from sudo to Anam in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says after all the Billahi min ash shaytani r Rajim or buka lohani yo ma e ash hibou Moya stock lift mill barra de

00:00:42--> 00:01:14

mean read the poem in Horry, Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses those who go against the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informing them that Allah subhanho wa Taala is absolutely and perpetually rich, he is absolutely independent whilst his creation is dependent on him and that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the possessor of all mercy. And if I've lost a parent who Allah will, they would get rid in an instant.

00:01:16--> 00:02:01

All these stubborn, arrogant people and all these people who are troubling the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and denying his message and giving him strife and replace them with a better people who will be diligent to the message of the messenger and the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is easy for Allah and he would do it just as Allah subhanho wa Taala gave these people these stubborn people life after their parents brought them into existence, Allah can bring a better people into existence. This stands out for several reasons, brothers and sisters in Islam, firstly, for the fact that it teaches us that so Pamela, oldest worship we do in Ramadan, and throughout our

00:02:01--> 00:02:13

lives, it is really for our own benefit. It doesn't benefit Allah subhanho wa Taala in any way he is absolutely and perpetually rich and independent.

00:02:14--> 00:02:30

Which means that Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't need our worship for His Majesty to be increased and if we don't worship Him, and if we don't listen to him, it doesn't decrease the majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala in any way or form Subhanallah

00:02:31--> 00:02:34

he's absolutely rich

00:02:36--> 00:03:19

and perpetually rich and white and he will never ever be in need of anyone. And if you want the deeper brothers and sisters in Islam, over this ayah you will understand that Subhana Allah, this ayah is teaching us how perfect Allah subhanho wa Taala is in that Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, he was the creator before he created, he never needed to create to be cold or become the Creator. And he was the most forgiving, the Most Merciful before he forgave. And before he showed mercy subhanho wa Taala he never needed to create a creation that will be weak and so that he can forgive and shower mercy upon them. So that now he can be called a foreigner Rama. No, Allah is absolutely rich

00:03:19--> 00:03:24

and independent of all of his creation is perfect from ever and is perfect from ever.

00:03:25--> 00:04:07

This is the reality of our Lord subhanho wa Taala and this is really really drives this understanding home for those who ponder and also we learn from it that's a pan of law for those who are not diligent with his laws. Some people say well look, right we breathing we eating we carry on, we have money, we have financial standing, we have material well being what's the problem, we don't pray, but we reach it in the people who pray. Allah subhanho wa Taala says Allah is also Rama alized the process of messy they don't undermine the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala in your living in your existence in your being and as Allah subhanho wa Taala says in another surah Kumbaya ob Kumara

00:04:07--> 00:04:47

biloela dropcam that tells them all Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that they only live and eat and breathe allows a and eat of US Food and enjoy their financial standing and material well being because of the drama that they make to Allah subhanho wa Taala even though they practice shark, but the courage believed in the Lordship of Allah, and they will turn to Allah for certain matters. They would associate partners with him that was the problem. But even in that circumstance, the fact that they tend to Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala cause them to prevail and to remain and Allah subhanho wa Taala is most wise. So brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala is absolutely rich. And

00:04:47--> 00:04:53

Allah subhanho wa Taala if he wanted, he would bring a nation that would worship Him as,

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

as, as as he as he wants Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is easy for Allah.

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala in another I Allah says yeah you are nice and to modificado in Allah that oh man can you fukada you are poor, you are poor in comparison to Allah, Allahu Allah and even Hamid Allah is the absolutely perpetually rich and absolutely perpetually praised. One is the owner of all praise, and that's why we say al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen this lamb is Lamb of Tim Leake, it means Alhamdulillah praises belongs to Allah. He is the owner of all praise. That is the Praiseworthy one in the absolute most beautiful sense whether you remember to praise him or you don't remember to praise him or you want to praise him or you refuse to praise him, it doesn't

00:05:38--> 00:06:12

change the reality with regards to Allah. Right. So all this worship we do brothers and sisters is entirely for our own benefit. Right? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala will reward us and Allah subhanho wa Taala will give us gender, this is the reality. And that is why brothers and sisters everyone will only enter gender because of Allah's mercy not because of the deeds. Don't ever think that it's your deeds that's going to get you that that will get you to gender all this bad and Ramadan, you might be pushing hard and that's good. Keep on pushing, but understand this the mercy of Allah that will get you to gender at the end. Yes, your deeds are a means of acquiring Allah's

00:06:12--> 00:06:19

mercy. But your deeds cannot be the ticket to gender alone in and of itself. Why? Because whenever you act

00:06:20--> 00:06:59

and do that, which Allah tells you to do a lot he wants you. If you say hamdulillah and you say right, I've given Allah back something. What does Allah subhanho wa Taala do? He rewards. So you're still in debt? Then you say let me say Subhan Allah, so I give a lot something back a lot. He wants you again. So you're still in debt. Then you say let me see Allahu Akbar. So I can give something back to Allah, by Allah towards you. So you're still in debt. Every time you act brothers and sisters in Islam a lot. What do you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala indeed we will all meet Allah subhanho wa Taala in depth. The reality is, is Allah mercy. So keep pushing brothers and sisters and

00:06:59--> 00:07:38

keep pressing and you know, 10 days of Ramadan is almost up to him by tomorrow, this time. 10 days of Ramadan will be up. Don't let the baton fall off your hand. Don't Don't let the ball slip. Don't let the ball slip that now is 10 days in Ramadan. Maybe you're caught you know the Quran program is getting weaker. Maybe the Salah program is getting weaker. Maybe the car program is getting weaker. Maybe the charity program is getting weaker. No brothers and sisters work and work and work. Why are Bukola honey Rama? Allah is totally independent, and he's absolutely rich. He is going to reward you, your rewards are safe, he will reward you and they will be safe. It's not a case whereby you do

00:07:38--> 00:08:15

something for somebody and he says Well, I can't pay you No, absolutely not willing to be level to Allah subhanho wa Taala never ever work and work and work and don't get tired of working don't feel that maybe I've worked enough. No, it's never enough. Why because the treasures of Allah subhanho wa Taala are vast. You can never do anything that would drain the treasures of Allah subhanho wa Taala so keep working and benefit yourself and brothers and sisters for those who might have already let the boat slip. Then understand brothers and sisters that as Allah says he is the possessor of messy Don't lose hope in the mercy of Allah and understand that actions are judged by the endings so pick

00:08:15--> 00:08:40

yourself up seek forgiveness for what for the for any slip up in the first 10 days of Ramadan and pick the ball up and let's move pick the baton up and let's move let's get the timetable back on track let's tweak the time table because before Ramadan we spoke about the importance of burning in and not burning out so let's tweak that but let's not lose hope in the mercy of Allah and let us work hard will spanaway to Allah inspire us All right, let me know I love you all for the sake of Allah assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato
