My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, I greet you with the greetings of peace. Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
phases belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala
and peace and salutations be upon the final messenger Muhammad Ali Abdullah 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 Messenger is His Messenger. May Allah gather us with him and Jana? I mean, my dear brothers and sisters, we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala and praise Him. We praise Allah with love and exaltation. Because this is the meaning of hams hand is not just raw praise. It's praise Oh a shocker. My Alma Huberty, what are we? This is ham.
Ham refers to
thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala was loving him and exalting him and nobody else can be thanked this way besides Allah subhanho wa Taala That is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Alhamdulillah all praises belong to Allah, all praises belong to Allah, whether we praise Him or we don't praise Him, all praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala thanking him with love and and exaltation for decreeing upon us witnessing another trophy.
And another night from the months or another night from the nights of this particular month of Ramadan.
Allah has blessed us and is deserving of even more praise and thanks for allowing us to witness the 15th of the month. Yes, the month has reached.
We don't say it's peak because we still have the last 10 nights and the night of power. But the month has indeed reached the halfway mark. the halfway mark. law here we waited for it since last Ramadan
and slowly but surely it came.
And as it came we've reached its half
and we ask Allah to grant us live to see its end. I mean, we Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those freed from the Hellfire mean, and make us from amongst them with the qun the people of taqwa amin And may Allah subhanho wa Taala
decree upon us to be from amongst those that will witness the night of power mean and thus receive the rewards greater than
1000 months greater than 83 years mean Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is upon all Eva. My dear brothers and sisters in yesterday's program, as we discuss the incident of the elephant I promised to open today's program
with a discussion surrounding tauheed or Ruby
or the towhid.
Pertaining to the Lordship of Allah subhanho wa Taala or tauheed in the Lordship of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we said we will discuss this when we spoke about the famous words of Abdul muttalib when he said to abraha Allah in a little Beatty or a bad say I'm not
right when he said that indeed this Kaaba has a lord, and this Lord will protect it. Right and we and we spoke about how or the lesson of having strong belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala and we said that you and I have a greater right towards having greater belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala because we have complete tawheed in Allah subhanho wa Taala unlike the correction This is the question that comes to mind, that how is it that the poor he believed in Allah in the way that they believed that they could
purposefully speak to abraha with confidence in this manner, yet they still needed a prophet to be sent to them. How is this possible? They believed in Allah. So why did they still need a prophet to be sent to them? In answer to this, my dear brothers and sisters, we must understand that toe heed comprises of three aspects, three aspects to heat a Ruby, which we spoke about the tauheed in the Lordship of Allah subhanho, wa Taala and towhid
which is the unity in terms of Allah is worship or tawheed, of a of a worship of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And then towhid alisma was sifat
believe that Allah subhanho wa Taala has names and qualities are specific to him subhanho wa Taala and nothing else this is what towhid entails tawheed entails these three matters. The Quraysh only believed in one of these three methods. We're not saying that though he these three types, we saying tauheed comprise of these three aspects you cannot be said to have come to have to heat if you believe in one and deny the other two, or believe in two and deny the other one. If you deny one of the three, you will be a person who has entered the realm of shark
and denied Allah subhanho wa Taala and associated partners unto Allah subhanho wa Taala the Quraysh they believed in one of these three aspects they believed in the Lordship of Allah. They did not dispute the Lordship they were not atheists, they will not upon the the argument of your own when he he denied Allah subhanho wa Taala did not deny the Lordship of Allah subhanho wa Taala but they denied the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and
they will not people have to heed with regards to the names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala
so why did they accept the Lordship of Allah? Oh, firstly, how do we know that they believed in Allah as the Lord? Firstly, we have the story that we've just taken the statement of Abdullah Talib a polytheist but he's statement to abraha of his belief in Allah, Allah and His the lord of this house and he will protect it. Secondly, Allah tells us in his book, Allah tells us, whether inside the home and it will lay a colon Kowloon, Allah, that if you ask these polytheists these people who deny you and call you names, oh prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked them who created the heavens and the earth? Immediately they will say Allah subhanho wa Taala created. So they
believe in the Lordship of Allah. What is this lordship mean? What does Ruby mean?
Ruby or or the Lordship of Allah and belief in his lordship pertains to you believing that Allah is the maker, the Sustainer, the nourisher, the protector, the maker, the giver of life, the giver of death.
This is the Lordship of Allah, He created everything in creation.
And once they believed in the Lordship of Allah, they also committed schilke in the Lordship of Allah, because they would ask idols for rain and for children, for example. And part of your belief in the Lordship of Allah is believing that it's only Allah who sends the rain. It is only Allah who gives you children. So even though they believed in Allah, their belief was polluted. They also have Shere Khan this belief. But the point to note is, they were not atheist, nor did they deny Allah they believed in a supreme being in a divine being Subhana, who was
once they had issues in the Lordship of Allah,
those issues necessitated greater issues.
And those issues are related to the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
For when they started
believing that other entities or these idols can be worshipped for children can be worshipped for rain, or they could slaughter animals to these idols. They associated partners to Allah in terms of his worship, in terms of his worship, because do is worship slaughtering an animal is worship as well. So, in essence, what they did was they associated partners and to align the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to red came to fix their belief in the Rabu BIA and invite them to towhid Aloha. Invite them to towhee the Lulu here, right? This unit to Allah subhanho wa Taala is worship that we worship none but Allah. We worship none but Allah, as we believe no one else is the maker of the nourish at the sustain of the giver of life and death and the protector and so on and so forth. We worship none but Allah subhanho wa Taala This is why Allah sent to them a prophet. They were people of hilke Yes, they believed in Allah. But that Oh, he'd had many issues. Allah subhanho wa Taala never sent any messenger, except with the same message in terms of theology
in terms of al Qaeda and belief. Every Prophet came with the message of tow, Hades Alou, he came with the message of tawheed which comprises of these three are Ruby iya, Aloha, and usma was deferred meaning belief in our last names and attributes. But the focus was on every prophet, Lockard out of Salah no one LFO follow me for call Yeah, call me a Buddha Allah May Allah Coleman Allah.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, indeed we sent the first messenger who was the first messenger no honey Salah, the first Prophet was Adam alayhis salaam, but the first messenger was new. And he said, Allah says we sent the first messenger to his people. And his message was them was what his message to them was, worship one Allah, there is no one worthy of worship besides Him. And this is the article of faith with you and I recite La ilaha illa Allah meaning lemma Abu Dhabi happened in La Jolla, meaning there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah.
Right. And as I said, don't be confused here. We're not saying there's three to hit. This is tauheed in its entirety, It comprises of these three aspects and each aspect necessitates the other and each aspect comprises of the other. But this breakdown that the scholars have done for us, was to teach us the reality of the heat. And why the Qureshi was sent a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yes, he didn't come and say and speak about these categories. Some people have an argument against speaking about to heat this way. They say this is a type of innovation Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam no the companions, none of them said there's rubia and there's Allah here and there's a
smell, we'll see if we say yes, they didn't. They invited towards Allah. But when they invited towards Allah that Dawa comprised of these three elements, the reason why the scholars have highlighted these three elements is for you and I, who are not prolific in the Arabic language, who never lived during the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who did not have a wholesome understanding of the Sharia, for you and I not to go astray for you and I to be complete in our understanding of to eat. So this is not an innovation. This is to facilitate what's necessary, just like inshallah, inshallah we have Farah it of Salah, you have seen in Uppsala, right. We have the
desk in Voodoo, we know we have the compulsory parts of Voodoo than the Sunnah parts of Voodoo, did Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam come and say the four compulsory parts of Voodoo as are the six compulsory parts are this depending on
the math habits you follow. And then the son of who is this and then the level of who is this now, but the skull is broken down for us to make it easier for us to comprehend. So that when we miss out something we know exactly what we've left out. As for the companions who lived revelation, they knew because of the prolific nature and abilities with the Arabic language they could differentiate between a compulsory
between revelation that denoted something compulsory, and revelation which denoted something recommended, but you and I did not. And Islam was for the whole world. It wasn't just for the Arabs. So Allah inspired the scholars to come up with these detail to make matters easy, they were not creating an innovation or be there when the scholars explained the elements of tauheed or what towhid entails. It was the same way they explained the elements of sada and what Salah entails and nobody says it's a bit odd to say that the pillar of Salah is this and the worship of Salah is that and the Sunnah of Salah is that in the same way, just as that isn't a bit of this is not a bit that
in any case, this shouldn't be something that makes the hearts differ. Right? Right hamdullah we have an international audience and Marshall Australia is international look at the people Mashallah.
cosmopolitan community we we must say that when we differ, the heart should not differ. And not every difference of opinion is a difference of opinion worthy of being considered. We must understand this as well, as our scholars used to say, when a user could look in a tab on Kindle Hilah, who have been been a novelty, this is what this call is used to say. Rahmatullah here telling him that not every difference of opinion is a difference of opinion worthy of considering the only difference of opinion you really consider is differences of opinion based on substantial evidence, where this party has substantial evidence, and this party has substantial evidence as well. Right.
So, this is a robo via and this is Hello here, what is the heat or
the unity of one's belief in Allah His names and attributes What is this, this refers to brothers and sisters, not attributing Allah's qualities to any of his creation, and not giving a creation any of the names specific to Allah subhanho wa Taala like Allah, like a rub, like a rock man, write
the name specific to Allah.
I'm not denying the names of Allah and not denying the attributes of Allah.
This is what it refers to when we say unity, in terms of one's belief in Allah names and qualities, we know that we have a group of people
may lash out upon them guidance. They say that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is what they say how that another, they say he's present and seeing.
Right, they say is present and seeing we say that this is a type of ship.
This is a type of ship you've given an attribute of Allah, an attribute of Allah, the attribute of Allah being all aware and all seeing elbasy you've given it to a creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala did not give him this, right. So we need this is why this call is bring to us these three components of the hidden this clarity, so we are wary and we make sure in every circumstance with regards to the Lordship of Allah, we are safe with regards to believe in the unity of the unity of Allah worship subhanho wa Taala we say we don't attribute any partners with him. With regards to this to his names and attributes. We do not do anything
that contradicts the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam with his names and attributes as well. Right? So this lesson is important. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to fix the issues that they had with their Ruby Yeah, and he went to also to invite them towards Rohit and Olivia worshiping one Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is why from the names of Allah is I had called who Allah who I had, Allah is the one and you should teach your children this My dear brothers and sisters. The reason why I'm saying it is I'm having great fun with my little son Abdullah. And it's fun the way he learns the names and the way he reads them back to you. It's
amazing, and how he's Subhanallah you teach your name and a child's mind is amazing how he starts analyzing this name and how he uses this name sometimes in in a different circumstance, in a different circumstance because Allah can see everything It is so hard Allah
right. Make sure you said you buying me that toy you you're gonna buy it, you know?
Right? Because a lie is a semia he hears everything he heard you what you said.
You should teach your children about Allah subhanho wa Taala and teach them about Allah using his names and attributes.
teach them about Allah, using his names and attributes and don't feel that they don't understand. They have a greater imagine their brain can comprehend the unseen better than adults. Think about it.
How many people have children here?
Masha Allah, may Allah marry those who don't get get those who don't married insha Allah and Allah bless you with children in sha Allah and those who are married and are waiting children, may Allah grant your children sooner rather than later. I mean, how many have had their children have imaginary friends?
literally is obviously it's imaginary but to them the friend is here and they give them names even my little Abdullah he has two imaginary friends. One is very naughty and one is very good.
It's absolutely amazing. Whenever something naughty happens he blames the naughty one without fail. Without fail. He will never mentioned he and his name. The one is named amoun. I don't know where the name came from. Among which language that is
One is called Becky and one and Becky Amon is the good friend Becca is the naughty friend when something naughty happens says Becky's fault
it's back as far as if he's not sleeping with Beck is not letting me sleep. I'm trying to I'm only sleeping back he's not letting me sleep.
And we have great fun with it even I have fun with him. You know now we traveled from from Saudi Arabia to Zimbabwe for the summer break. So when we were leaving, I told him I said, Abdullah, we're going to Zimbabwe he says yes.
I said, whose house are we going to? He says we're going to
his grandfather's house, my dad's house. I said yes. I said your bags are packed he said yes. I said what about ammonia and Becca started thinking
he says no this thing here
but when I when I got into the plane, he said so we're going to Zimbabwe sooner we're going to do by first here's why we went to Dubai I said because the plane that goes to Zimbabwe we have to catch it from Dubai. Because Okay, I get it I get it I get it. He goes on and back end they're going to Qatar.
I said why the way to Qatar he says the plane that goes to Zimbabwe is from Qatar.
We are love preserve our children in his obedience. I mean, so they have any imagination you tell them about Allah license strange to them. is not strange to them. teach them about Allah never feel they're too small and teach them also about shavon ever feel that too small to know. Tell them Chopin is bad. Yeah, I'm trained is young boy Yusuf Alayhi Salam about shavon at a very young age.
We know he was abducted as a young boy but before he was abducted. Yeah. He said I'm taught him in the shape honor in in Santa Urdu movie, that indeed shavon is a clear enemy to insan to mankind. teach them about shavon in any case.
So he or Ruby Yeah. Why did the Quraysh except that there's a rub. But they didn't accept that he's the only one worthy of worship Why?
I found an amazing explanation by [???]hole Islam, even Tommy Mottola here
about this point.
And may Allah
gather us with our scholars.
In general, I mean, with the Imams Imam, Imam Abu hanifa Imam Malik mama Shafi Imam, Ahmed and all the scholars, the students of the Imams Rahmatullah anahim, Allah gathers with them in general ly we've benefited from them, and we we read their works and we love them and can't wait to meet them. Even TV archimate Allahu Allah says, look, the term rub.
This is one of the names of Allah. This term rub has multitudes of meanings, and that's why it's one of the great names of Allah. It's been used in the Quran hundreds of times, the only name
used more than Rob is the name of Allah. And that's what the scholars say, The Greatest Name of Allah is Allah, there's some difference of opinion. But the majority say the Greatest Name is Allah. Rob, is also one of the great names of Allah. Why? Because this name entails several other meanings of the other names of Allah. One of the meanings of Rob is the one who protects you and nurtures you to perfection to completion.
And that is why if you look at a lot of the supplications it's Yeah, Rob Rob Bana. robina robina, right. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about the drought of the prophets and they were always saying, Robbie Robbie thoroughly while you are Lydia Robbie
Matic Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he taught us the best of his default Allahumma Antara be La Ilaha Illa. And this term Rob is used by all the MBR la hemos Salatu was Salam Yusuf Alayhi Salam when he was seeking protection from the females who are enticing him towards Xena he said Rob besieging. Oh my Robbie turned to his Rob, right.
This term Rob was used by the the the MBR mo Salatu was Salam and it was used by the pious worshipers of Allah, who Allah subhanho wa Taala praised, for example, indeed, in the differences of the night and the day,
Rafi layli. When in the field, Alka sama, indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, what the lay of the land and in the differences of the night and day, and we know there's differences, some nights are long, and some nights are short, some nights are hot, and some nights are cold. Some nights
are loud with war.
mela, protect our brothers and sisters. I mean, and some nights are
peaceful. With security. There's differences in the nights and the day, Allah says
In all of this assigns for those of understanding, Allah praises the people of understanding, who are the people of understanding Allah. Allah tells us, Allah says, Allah the guru, Noah happy.
Be him ysf Karuna, he is.
Allah says these people of understanding are those who remember Allah, standing walk or Odin while sitting were alleged to be him and on their sides waiter for karoun and they ponder and reflect over the creation of the heavens and the earth.
What does this rabada do to them? This is a bad reflecting is a bad What does it do to them? It inspires them and it grows they all have Allah subhanho wa Taala thus they feel this overwhelming need to exalt Allah. So they say robina
about Bella Rob, they say Oh our Lord indeed you did not create this in false would they start making do I and do I and do I first they say Glory be to You protect us from the Hellfire then what do they say? Oh Bella in the nurse. Una de una de Imani and amin will be Robbie confirm and now Robin as a Filipina Zulu been our coffee Rhonda yeah Tina what often Allah bra Robin Tina Turner
talks in IML in Nicola,
Rob, Rob, Rob, Rob. We don't have time to go into the meanings but revise it. I've given you. Its placement just before Surah Nisa
a page before Surah Nisa.
So they call unto Allah saying, Rob, Rob. Rob, what does Allah say to them? First,
Rob boom Subhan Allah, Allah says, thus they are have responded to them, and answered them Subhana Allah gave them the glad tidings that Allah subhanahu Allah mentions in this area. So this term murghab has a specific presence and placement in the life of a human being.
Because the human being is designed to survive.
He's designed to survive. And Rob refers to the one who protects you and nurtures you to completion. So Shere Khan is not even Tamia says it wasn't abnormal for them to accept this, it was part and parcel of what they have been designed to do, which is to survive, they desire to survive necessitated them accepting the presence of a supreme being who they can turn to for protection and who nurtures them to completion so cannot be Alana what a deep understanding Allah He went when I read this, it's like Stan smile said knockout punch. It was a knockout punch for Allah Subhana Allah Look at this, this akal of this man right look at the brain of this person to actually did use this
and grow and enhance our understanding of the term. So this was not a strange for the Quraysh they need to survive in their in insane, insane has its issues and weaknesses. In science it signs need to survive was fog. insan felt that his need to survive was far greater than his need to worship one Allah so he accepted the Ruby of Allah and never necessarily accepted the owner here.
If only INSEAD knew that survival can only be when you are sure what Allah subhanho wa Taala
May Allah gathers together to discuss to hit in greater detail in this day and age brothers and sisters, do we have issues in the Ruby of Allah? Yes, we don't prostrate to anyone but Allah and inshallah we don't ask anyone but Allah. We don't ask any saints. We don't ask any person who's passed away. And we don't claim people to be saints before the day of pm.
This is not from from the practice of Islam. And if you look at the sources even of those before us it's it's not from the practice it's not from the teachings of the prophets, because the Jews and the Christians to believe in the day of judgment and when they claim people to be saints, this is a contradiction not so that you claiming someone to be from Paradise.
Before the Day of Judgment, this is a contradiction.
But in terms of Islam as well, people say this saint and that's it. We say only Allah knows who are the saints from the nonsense, right? Nobody knows.
He liked the term cleanser.
I didn't say nonsense.
But you caught on, Mashallah. Mashallah, you guys? Why are you so slow, man, come on. You're not fast.
Right now you
so we don't ask people who've passed away. We ask only Allah subhanho wa Taala so inshallah we have no issues insha Allah what the Allah here but do we have issues with Ruby? Yeah. With our two hidden the Lordship of Allah. There are certain elements that need to be corrected in our societies My dear brothers and sisters they are How many times do we hear people attribute success to themselves? How many times how many times have people attribute financial success to themselves and not recognized Allah attributed educational success to themselves and not recognized Allah attributed success in their work and success in their play to themselves and not recognized Allah? How many times have
they attributed success in the spouses that they married to themselves? It's my handsomeness is my qualities that she wanted to marry me or the female will say hamdulillah is to have a line of people who wanted to marry me we deny Allah subhanho wa Taala in the process, how many times do we attribute the success of our material well being to ourselves and deny Allah subhanho wa Taala How many times do we hear a person say it's I I put food on my table? I put food on my table. It is my earning. It is my hard work. It was my idea that got this deal. It was my doing that cause the success How many times do we hear people say that this is dangerous, my dear brothers and sisters.
This shows a type of form of weakness. In terms of your toe hidden Ruby, yeah. When you say Allah is the Lord, how can you attribute anything to yourself? When Rob refers to the one who nurtures you to completion, the perfection you have is not from yourself. It's from the one who nurtured you. Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah or Buddha, Allah, Allahu Allah, I had a summit, a summit, the one upon who everything in creation is dependent upon Allah, Allah May Allah Allah mula, what am your Kula
subhanho wa Taala How can we say this? Right? So we need to take heed my dear brothers and sisters never ever attribute anything to yourself, your complete belief in Allah necessitates that dictates that you acknowledge Allah subhanho wa Taala. Praise be to Allah who blessed me with these a stars in my exams. All Praise be to Allah who blessed me with the ability to study. All Praise be to Allah who increased my knowledge, All Praise be to Allah who decreed upon me sustenance, who opened the hearts of the people to accept my idea for this duty go through all praise be to Allah All Praise be to Allah All Praise be to Allah subhanho wa Taala
Allah subhanho wa Taala grant is the understanding. I mean, we need to take heed my dear brothers and sisters,
Allah He discussing these things you can go on and on talking about Allah subhanho wa Taala and in this blessed month
but we must move on
