Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu

00:00:20--> 00:00:23

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:39--> 00:01:00

our other bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah al Karim rubbish Rocklea sodbury were silly Emery Wahoo lokta melissani of Kahu Kohli Allah who made the call be was sadly Sonny was through so he mythical be mean your bladder mean?

00:01:02--> 00:01:35

What either Celica Reba the undie for Indian Corrib OG Buddha water there either Don fall yesterday Bulli while you may know the law law homier should own and when my slaves ask you concerning me, that indeed I am near. I respond to the call of the supplicant when he calls upon me. So they should also respond to me. And they should believe in me in order that they may be rightly guided.

00:01:36--> 00:02:33

Da, is a way of drawing close to Allah subhanho wa taala. The relationship between the slave and His master us and Allah is that of the fact that we are beggars to him, we are in need of Him, and He is Ever generous, ever Merciful to us. He is the one who is constantly giving us what we are in need of, he gives us when we ask and he also gives us when we don't when we do not ask. In fact, there are more things that he has given us without us asking him compared to those things which he has given us on our asking him Subhanallah he will be home the heat and our needs are such that they never end we are constantly dependent on Allah subhanaw taala constantly in need of His favours of

00:02:33--> 00:03:24

His mercy of his aka his generous bestowal. And we have learned in the etiquette of making Garowe that we should begin with the praise and glorification of Allah subhanho wa Taala then we should send salat on the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then we should ask him, we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for what we wish for what we need for what we desire. And when it comes to glorifying Allah subhanahu wa Tada. Remember that you can do this in a number of ways. You can do this in the form of mentioning his excellent names and attributes. For example, you begin your ERA by saying Allah Houma, or Allah, and the name, Allah itself is very powerful. And it is such that it

00:03:24--> 00:04:17

encompasses within it all of the names and attributes of Allah, because Allah means the God, the only one who is worthy of worship. So who is the actual true God, the One who is worthy of worship, the one who is perfect in his ability, the one who has knowledge of everything, the one who has created everything, the one who knows everything, the one who is all wise. So the name Allah encompasses all of the names and attributes of Allah. So you can begin your da simply by saying Allah Houma or Allah, Ya Allah, or you say, Rob burner, our rub, rub be my rub, my lord, and the name Rob contains the meaning of harlech Malik muda be an even more meaning the creator, the master,

00:04:17--> 00:04:38

the owner, and the one who, who the one who is taking care of His creation, the one who provides who sustains and you can also mention other names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala that are related to what you are specifically asking Allah subhanaw taala for we learned in a hadith that

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

a dua that Allah Houma in me is a Luca be Aneesh he Luca en Naka La ilaha illa until I had to summit Allah the lamb Yellin jolla mula dweller Miyako locka, Khufu one I had, that Oh ALLAH indeed I ask you, as I bear witness that there is no deity except you

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

One Eternal refuge, he who neither begets nor is born, nor is there to you any equivalent. So this is a way of beginning Dora that we first glorify and praise Allah or Silja. And even miss Ruth Radi Allahu Anhu. He said that when a person intends to ask Allah for something, then he should begin with praise and glorification of Allah that Allah is deserving off. Then you should send salah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he should make dua, because this is more likely that he will attain what He desires. We also learned that once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard a man making dua, he was yet to Rufus Salah he was making dua in his salah, and it

00:05:50--> 00:06:32

seems like he wasn't the Shah hood. And in the Shah hood, you know, you you went when you sit you say, at the here to let your Salawat to pay you but then you send Salatin, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then you make dua. For example, Robinette Atina, for dunya Hassan, our Phil Ephrata Hassan. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard the man making dua during salah, and that men did not praise Allah and he did not send salah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about him that are Agila Harada he has made haste, he has been hasty. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam call that men and he said

00:06:32--> 00:07:21

to him, and to those who were there, that when any one of you prays, he should begin with the glorification of his robe, and praise him, he should then invoke blessings on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he should supplicate Allah for anything that he wishes. So this is the proper etiquette that we mentioned the praise and glorification of Allah, then we send solid, and then we ask Allah, otherwise, our dog would be hasty. And it means that we are rushing, it means that we are being impatient. It means that we are just being greedy for what we desire. Whereas remember that Da is actually worship, it is a form of showing servitude subservience to Allah

00:07:21--> 00:07:34

subhanaw, taala. And Dora is, is the real fruit of DA is that you attain closeness to Allah. So if you rush through your da, and you just say,

00:07:36--> 00:08:30

Oh Allah, just give me this, you know, you're not spending any time glorifying Allah, you're not repeating the name of Allah, then you are being hasty. In you know, in the Quran, we see at the end of sort of earlier Imran some doors are mentioned, and all of those doors begin with drop burner, Rob burner, Rob burner. So many doors are there and are and all of those doors are beginning with Robina so sometimes when you're making the wrong you can just say you know, rugby after every few words rugby you know every few words Allahumma yeah Allah He mentioned the name of Allah mentioned his, his perfect his beautiful names because this is a form of glorifying Him. And we see that in

00:08:30--> 00:09:30

the Quran in Surah Fatiha Allah azza wa jal teaches us how we should worship him and how we should call upon Him. Allah subhanaw taala says in Surah Fatiha Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim, Al hamdu, Lillahi Rabbil aalameen of Rahmani Raheem, Maliki Yomi, Dean a year canal Buddha what a year canister in a dino slothful muster team slid off by ledvina and untie lay him laid in Mulberry lay him one of the lean mean you see into Fatiha we begin with the praise and glorification of Allah. We say all praise is for Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, who is the extremely Merciful, the continuously merciful. He is the master, the sovereign of the Day of Recompense the Day of Judgment. And we say

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

you alone, we worship you alone, we seek help from guide us to the straight path, the path of those whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have received your anger and nor of those who are astray. So you see here, we learned that other that first begin with praise and then ask so the first Surah of the Quran teaches us to add up the manner of calling upon Allah

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

Allah subhanho wa Taala and when you recite total Fatiha bear in mind that Allah is Mujeeb right so he responds, when you say Al hamdu lillahi rabbil aalameen Allah subhanaw taala says my slave has praised me when you say a recommanded Rahim Allah subhanaw taala answers. He says my slave has praised me when you say magic here with Dean Allah answers my slave has glorified me. And when you say a year cannot Buddha a year cholesterin Allah says, This is between me and my slave, my slave will have what he asks for. And when you ask Allah for guidance, Allah subhanaw taala says this is for my slave my slave will have what he asks for. And we learned the truth of Fatiha is such that

00:10:44--> 00:11:07

when you recite it, and then you make dua, in Hadith we learn that, that you are granted, meaning you never recite a single letter of sudo to Fatiha, but that you are granted it meaning you are granted its reward. And if you make dua after reciting sort of Fatiha, that Da is also accepted, it is it is granted.

00:11:09--> 00:12:10

The same is the case for the last two verses of Surah Baqarah. Now when we recite Surah Fatiha and we say Al hamdu, Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. Why are we glorifying Allah? And why do we begin da with the praise of Allah, you see hand is to describe someone with their most perfect attributes. And Allah subhanaw taala has the most perfect attributes. He is all good, meaning every attribute every name of his is excellent. The thing with the creation is that where they have good qualities, they also have some negative traits. Allah Azzawajal when he is an Hamid, he is ever praise worthy, meaning he is always perfect. So he is most deserving of praise. And he is most deserving of the

00:12:10--> 00:13:07

fact that we praise Him and we praise him with him. Because Hound is not just to mention the most perfect traits of someone but to do so, with love, with respect, with adoration, and with sincerity, knowing that the one you are praising is worthy of that praise. And it is only Allah subhanahu wa taala who is like that we learned in the Quran, Fidella Hill hamdok Bhisma Watty one of bill out of the rock Billa mean to Allah belongs all praise. Meeting for Allah is do all praise, who is the Lord of the Skies and the Lord of the Earth, the Lord of the worlds we learned Alhamdulillah he finally does somehow what he will up all praises for Allah. He is the creator of the skies and the earth,

00:13:07--> 00:14:01

the originator of the skies in the year. So Al hamdu lillahi rabbil aalameen All praises for Allah He is the Lord of the Worlds. He is the one who has created them. He is the one who provides every creature. Whatever blessing we have, one might be coming near Mateen feminine law. It is from Allah, any worldly blessing, even the blessing of guidance. This is from Allah, we learned in sort of calf Alhamdulillah he lady ends nzlr Allah RBT Hill Kitab all praises for Allah, Who has sent down the book on his slave meeting, the sending of the book, the revelation of the Book is a favor is a blessing to mankind from ALLAH. So ALLAH deserves all praise Alhamdulillah Phil Hola. Well akhira in

00:14:01--> 00:14:52

the beginning, and in the end, in this world, and also in the hereafter. Well, I will handle Phil akhira So Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. Then we say a man of Rahim that Allah is extremely merciful, He is continuously merciful. So in your era, you should mention the names of Allah. Because the when you mentioned the names of Allah, you are praising Allah subhanaw taala even more. And then you say Maliki omit the that he is the sovereign of the Day of Judgment, the only one who will have power on the Day of Judgment. Everyone else the entire creation will be powerless before Allah he is he is the only king on the Day of Judgment, the only one with power on the Day of

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

Judgment. In this world. Allah subhanaw taala has given temporary power and ability to people but on the day of judgment sovereign

00:15:00--> 00:15:55

tea will exclusively be for Allah alone. Maliki OMA D. And this shows us that we should remember not just the German but also the Jellal. Any, not just the beauty of Allah subhanaw taala, but also his might. You see sometimes we just focus on on the names of Allah, which mentioned His mercy, His love, His kindness, his generosity, his forgiveness, and that is good. But here Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us that he is 100 Rahim and Maliki Amati so have fear of him. So, remind yourself that Allah subhanaw taala is also Chedid shadier polyp severe in retribution, that he is Habib, he is fully aware of what we are doing. So we should have that fear also. So when you're making the right

00:15:55--> 00:16:47

in your heart, have that love and also thoroughly also respect bring bring to mind to heart, the Jamal, the perfect beauty of Allah and also the GLL the perfect might Greatness of Allah and bring to your heart both hope and fear. Because sometimes when people are making their up, they become a bit disrespectful before Allah, where they begin to speak as though they're speaking to a child. Or they begin to say things which are not appropriate, as if they're testing the power of Allah. So we should be fearful Maliki over dean. And then we say, a yak and our Buddha a year kind of staring you alone, we worship and You alone, we ask for help. And this is a form of war sila. Remember that? We

00:16:47--> 00:17:37

discussed earlier, that when we make dua, we should also use with sila vasila, as a means of nearness to Allah. And one of the forms of Wartsila is that when we're making Dora, we mentioned something good that we have done, not to show off, not to demand a reward from Allah, that Oh Allah, I have done this. So you reward me? No, not for that reason. Rather, we mentioned a good deed of ours. Why because good deeds are a means of drawing closer to Allah. So when you when you mentioned something that you have done, for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, something that pleases Allah subhana wa Tada. Then this will draw you closer to Allah. So a year cannot boo, what a year can I

00:17:37--> 00:18:26

sustain that Oh Allah, You alone we worship. Now I am worshiping you. And otherwise in my life also, I worship only you, I do not associate any partner with you. What a ye canister in you alone, we seek help from and this is so beautiful, first is Riba and then is the ANA. First is worship. And then there is seeking of help from Allah. And sometimes we think that, you know, we don't need to be religious, as long as we are spiritual Subhanallah any, we just want to be spiritual, that we have a lot of love for God and we have a lot of hope in God and we praise God. But when it comes to the commands that Allah has given the things that Allah subhanaw taala wants us to do, the way that

00:18:26--> 00:19:13

Allah subhanaw taala wants us to live our lives. We don't want to do that. So this is not the proper way. Allah subhanaw taala is teaching us that first comes the Riba and then esteana and this also shows us that when we're making Dora, then before we seek help from Allah, we should do something good. So for example, give some charity, make some liquid, do some frisbee, since Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, recite some Quran, pray Nafion prayer, you know something, some act of worship, and then ask Allah subhanaw taala for help. And then we say a dinner sit up and Mr. Team guide us to the straight path. This is so amazing. Any sort of the Fatiha is a Surah we have to

00:19:13--> 00:19:57

recite in every Salah every day, right multiple times. And we are asking Allah subhanaw taala for something into Fatiha and that is guidance. And you would think that you know if you ask for something once, I mean that should be sufficient, but no, it is not sufficient. It is not enough. Because you are we are always in need of guidance every moment, every moment. If you think about it in the first Joker We ask Allah for guidance. And then a few moments later we ask Allah for guidance again, this means that yes, we needed guidance a few moments ago. We need guidance now. And we will leave guidance A few moments later and then after that, and after that, every moment of our lives we

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

are in need of guidance. We are in need of

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

increasing in guidance. So,

00:20:04--> 00:20:51

one of the scholars he said that people are in need of guidance more than they are in need of sustenance and and help otherwise. Because when a person has guidance, then what will happen Allah subhanaw taala will help them and Allah subhanaw taala will give them sustenance because Allah says woman yet tequila yadgir Allah Who Maharaja, Whoever fears Allah and who will fear Allah, the One who is guided, then Allah subhanaw taala will make a way out for him out from what from his troubles, Allah subhanaw taala will bring him out of his difficulty. And Allah subhanaw taala will you have Zukerman, Hazel I will give him some students from where he cannot even expect meaning the

00:20:51--> 00:20:56

person did not even imagine that he could get sustenance from there Allah subhanaw taala will give him

00:20:57--> 00:21:44

and this is why we are in need of guidance. Guidance is the most important thing. So it did not sit out on was the team slid off and levena Anantara lay him Laden will do br lay him will have bar lien, that Oh Allah, we want the path of those people whom you were pleased with not the path of those whom you were angry with, or those who are astray. Who are those people who receive the anger of Allah, those who know yet they disobey and who are those who are lost who are straight people who don't even know how to please Allah, how to worship Allah, they don't even have knowledge. So sutra, Fatiha teaches us, how to call upon Allah subhanho wa taala. That, first of all we learned into the

00:21:44--> 00:22:36

Fatiha that we should, we should make dua because we are being taught to ask Allah in a Serato was stalking. So we learned that we should make dua we should ask Allah subhanaw taala Secondly, we learned from Surah Fatiha, that we should begin Dural with the praise and glorification of Allah, just as Surah Fatiha begins with the praise and glorification of Allah. Thirdly, we learned in sort of fatty hell, that we should, we should use were sila, meaning we should first worship Allah subhanaw taala perform some act of worship that is pleasing to Allah or mentioned that and then make dua This is the proper way of making dua. When we see the Sunnah, the way of the Prophet sallallahu

00:22:36--> 00:22:38

alayhi wa sallam, what was

00:22:39--> 00:23:06

his manner, we learned that he would also begin his dua with with glorification and praise of Allah. In a hadith we learn that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got up at night to offer that the hodzic prayer, he would say Allah Malakal hand O Allah, For You is all Praise. Under a year Musa my word you will have the woman fee him.

00:23:08--> 00:23:13

You are the holder of the heavens and the earth and whatever is in them.

00:23:14--> 00:23:21

Well I can hand like a mole Kusama wa T will help the woman fee him For You is all Praise.

00:23:22--> 00:24:09

And you own the dominion of the skies and the earth and whoever is in them. While Achill hand no some are worth you will all for you as all praise You are the light of the heavens and the earth will account for You is all Praise and they'll help you are the truth will work you can help and your promise is true when they call Luca Huck, and your meeting is true we'll call Luca Help Your Word is true well Jenna to help paradise is true when now to help fire is true. When the BU and a hack and the prophets are true when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Huck Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his true was Sarah to help the hour is true. Allahu molucca Islam to Oh Allah to

00:24:09--> 00:24:59

you I surrender what because I'm going to in you I believe we're alike at our curl to and then you I put my trust what a Laker unable to to you I return will be kaha son to and with your help I argue what a Laker How come to and I take you as a judge follow fiddly ma are down to one two, so forgive me for whatever I have sent ahead and whatever I have delayed meaning Forgive me my previous and future since so much praise and then he was seeking forgiveness from Allah phone field Lima caught them too hot to warm up a stroll to Ireland to and whatever I have done secretly and whatever I've done openly Yeah, Allah forgive me for that. Until mocha demo

00:25:00--> 00:25:47

Well until a hero La ilaha illa Anta you are the one who makes things go forward and others backward. There is none to be worshipped but you so praise at the beginning and praise at the end. And in the middle, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked for forgiveness Subhanallah he, this die is so beautiful. There's so much praise and glorification of Allah. And what is the Prophet sallallahu already sent of asking for, for forgiveness. He is asking for forgiveness when all of his sins were already forgiven. Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, right that all of his sins Leo fear Allah kimitaka demean them beggar woman that all of his sins were forgiven, yet he would

00:25:47--> 00:26:24

seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala so beautifully. So if we want to learn what the best way, the most beautiful way of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala is and the prophets of Allah who are using them as example is the best example for us. And this is why we have been told that if you love Allah, then you should follow the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when you follow Him, that Allah who love you, because look at how beautiful his way was. He if you begin your Tahajjud prayer like this, when you get up, and you begin your tahajjud this is how you begin, he,

00:26:25--> 00:26:48

of course, you will feel closer to Allah. And that is a time when Allah subhanaw taala is, you know, he draws near his slaves and he invites them to worship him to call upon him to ask him and if you praise and glorify Allah subhanaw taala like that, then you will feel that that love for Allah, you will feel closeness to Allah.

00:26:49--> 00:27:37

So we see here that another thing we see over here is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praised and glorified Allah, more than more than the words he used to ask Allah subhanaw taala for something, meaning the words of hand were more than the words of DA and sometimes we can do that, that we spend more time praising and glorifying Allah and less time asking, because you know why, when you will, when you will praise and glorify Allah what will happen? Allah subhanaw taala will forgive you your sense Allah subhanaw taala will guide you Allah subhanaw taala will give you more than what you could ask for and more than what you could even imagine more than what you could think

00:27:37--> 00:27:39

of asking Allah subhanaw taala for

00:27:40--> 00:28:00

so spend time is glorifying and praising Allah subhana wa Tada. And we learned that on the Day of Judgment, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he will glorify and praise Allah with words that he will be taught at that time.

00:28:01--> 00:28:37

Any He glorified and praised Allah so much here, but on the day of judgment, He will be taught some special words with which to glorify and praise Allah. So we should busy our tongue with the glorification and praise of Allah in general, but specifically, when making Daura. Now when it comes to glorification and praise of Allah, you know, one is to do the spear and the other is to do the Hamid does B is to is to glorify Allah to Hamid is to praise Allah

00:28:38--> 00:29:43

does B is for example, you say superhard Allah and the Hamid is for example, you say Alhamdulillah. Now, when it comes to the spear, what is the spear that's B is that you are saying that Allah is perfect, that Allah is free from any imperfection, any fault, any deficiency, any error, any resemblance to the creation, any partner or equal or child or anything like that, that Allah is far above and beyond even the things that people imagine about Allah, or the false assumptions that people have about Allah. So Allah is perfect. This is in essence what Subhan Allah means and we are taught to glorify Allah Subhana Allah, Allah subhanaw taala tells us messenger sallallahu alayhi wa

00:29:43--> 00:29:59

sallam that for sub be behind the rock big will come in a surgeon glorify Allah with his praise. For Sabir Bismillah Bismillah R. Aleem. Sahbihi small because Allah He here the Prophet sallallahu

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

sedum is being instructed to glorify Allah, Allah glorifies himself Subhana Allah the SRB of the Glory be to the one who took his slave on the night journey.

00:30:11--> 00:30:59

We learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is taught in the Quran to glorify Allah Billa she you when you come in the evening in the morning, any at the two ends of the day at the beginning and at the end, the believers are told what's up Bihu hobo Katanga sila glorify Allah in the morning and in the evening. The heavens in the earth, glorify Allah to some Behala has somehow to separate well or do woman fie him. Whoever is within the heavens in the earth also glorify Allah. We learned in the Quran that the sky is the earth, everything within them, the birds, all of them glorify Allah, even thunder glorifies Allah, the angels glorify Allah, that would earn a Salam, when

00:30:59--> 00:31:50

he would glorify Allah, the mountains and the birds would join him. So everything glorifies Allah, the angels do so the carriers of the throne, the angels that are closest to Allah subhanaw taala they glorify Him. And when we worship Allah subhanaw taala any, whether in the day or in the night, we are also glorifying Allah. Right, What's up baby Hammurabi Kahina ACOEM, that when you get up, then glorify Allah subhanaw taala it is, because of this be that people are or rather the creation is given sustenance as we learned in one of the narrations and the words of the spear. Subhan Allah will hamdulillah La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, these words are a horrible Calamy Illa most

00:31:50--> 00:32:06

beloved to Allah. So think about it, when you're making the art and you begin with words that Allah subhanaw taala loves, then, instantly, you you are drawing closer to Allah, you are, you are inviting his mercy.

00:32:08--> 00:33:06

And we learn in a hadith that in Rebecca Your humble hand, that indeed your Lord loves hunt, so to speak, and also hunt, we also learned that there is nothing more beloved to Allah, then hum than praise. So we should praise and glorify Allah subhanaw taala in general, like I said, but also when making dua and you see, sometimes we are feeling very uncomfortable, very suffocated or lonely in our thoughts in our heads. And, you know, we, we've we begin to feel very negative because of what someone has said or because of what we think someone is saying, or someone is doing any, we feel so trapped in such negative thoughts. And sometimes these thoughts are,

00:33:08--> 00:33:53

you know, you know, there's some basis for thinking this way and and other times there is no basis it's just imaginary. Regardless, when we're feeling like this, then we need to get out of that condition. How do you come out of that condition? Call upon Allah subhanaw taala. Sometimes you don't even know what to ask Allah subhanaw taala for then what should you do just start glorifying Allah. You see in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala tells us messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that will occur the Narayana will Anneka ldquo Sadhguru cabbie, Maya Kowloon, that certainly we know that your chest feels constricted because of what people say. And wow, what kind of atrocious things

00:33:53--> 00:34:34

people say or people would say about the prophets of Allah who already sent them. Such lies inappropriate things they would say about him. So of course he would feel uncomfortable. What was the solution that Allah subhanaw taala gave him go respond to them, Go refute them, busy yourself in answering them know for some behind the rock because our communist said at, glorify with praise of your Lord and be of those who make such the busy yourself in the Tasbeeh and in the detriment of Allah. When you will do that your heart will feel at ease. And Allah subhanaw taala will take care of those who are talking against you.

00:34:35--> 00:34:59

Sometimes we feel very stingy with our money. That you know we are afraid that we're going to have little left you know, it's Ramadan. A lot of people have to give the cat in the month of Ramadan and the thought of giving the cat makes them afraid, calculating what they have to give. Sometimes people have other fears or there's general anxiety and Subhanallah

00:35:00--> 00:35:19

These days, every other person has some issue you know that they're struggling with, because of which they're anxious. They're afraid they're worried. And so, we need to increase in in the glorification and praise of Allah. In a hadith we learned that whoever is such that,

00:35:20--> 00:36:10

that he is afraid to spend his wealth or he is afraid of some enemy, or the darkness of the night frightens him, and, and and other things the Prophet sallallahu already mentioned. Then such a person should increase in saying so behind Subhan Allah he will have to rely he will Illa in Allahu Allahu Akbar. In another narration, we learned such a person should increase in saying Subhan Allah he will be handy. So does be the mean is not just a way of glorifying Allah when you when you do this be, this is not just for Allah, this is for you. Also. You, you describe Allah subhanaw taala has greatness you mentioned it, why because that is what will fill you with light, that is the

00:36:10--> 00:36:58

source of comfort for you. That is what will bring you relief. Because when you do this, when you do this be you draw closer to Allah when you draw closer to Allah, you will receive His mercy and that mercy will envelop you. And it will be a means of taking away your grief, your worry, your anxiety, your troubles. So Subhan Allah will handle in, don't underestimate the power of these words. In a hadith we learned that when you Say Subhan, Allah will hamdulillah then the space between the skies and the earth is filled up any with reward. This is how beneficial these words are. And you see, sometimes our sins hold us back from calling upon Allah. What should we do then

00:36:59--> 00:37:33

do this B because when a person does this B, then their sins are forgiven, even if they are like the foam of the seat. And when you say a words of this be these words of praise glorification, they, they ascend, and they revolve around the Throne of Allah subhanahu wa Tada as if they're making mention of you. Because we learned the Quran that remember me and I will remember you on the Day of Judgment, these words will be heavy, even okay him said that whoever

00:37:34--> 00:37:55

constantly does this be then his his face will become bright, and he will constantly receive the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the one who constantly seeks forgiveness from Allah, then the you know, the things that the doors that are closed for him open up.

00:37:57--> 00:38:20

And we learned that those who praise Allah will be the best of Allah subhanaw taala as slaves on the Day of Judgment. So what are some ways in which we can glorify and praise Allah, at the beginning of our era, and also in general? First of all, the first must be is Subhana. Allah Subhana Allah means Glory be to Allah.

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

And we learn in a hadith that if a person says Subhana Allah 100 times before the sunrises and before the sunsets, then this is better for him than 100 camels.

00:38:39--> 00:39:22

Think about it, if you could get 100. Tesla's every day, then you would you would do whatever is required, as long as it's not giving, you know millions of dollars in money. If it's something you have to say you would say readily. Allahu Akbar, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is telling us saying Subhana Allah 100 times before sunrise before sunset is better for you than 100 candles. You see these days, the time before if thought, right when you are, let's say laying the table prepping, if you're just doing the last minute things as you were doing that, busy your tongue in the dhikala just keep saying Subhan Allah Subhan Allah Subhan Allah Glory be to Allah Glory be to Allah.

00:39:23--> 00:39:42

After you pray Fajr a lot of people tend to take some rest. So as you lay down, at that time also busy your tongue in that this be of Allah. These words are words that Allah subhanaw taala has chosen, meaning Allah subhanaw taala loves these words.

00:39:43--> 00:39:59

And these words are such that they express the veneration of the Majesty of Allah, a man asked earlier the Longhorn who that what is Subhan Allah what does this mean? He said Darlene Mugello, Linda, it is veneration of the Majesty of Allah

00:40:00--> 00:40:54

meaning this is a way of glorifying Allah mentioning his perfect greatness. And when you say Subhan Allah, basically you are declaring the Oneness of Allah. Right? It is. It is the basis of Tawheed. And because you believe in the Oneness of Allah because he is all perfect, this is a pillar of Eman and only Allah is the One who is deserving off the spear. Why because he is the only one who is perfect. Right He is the only one who has a high yield aka Yun and ledee lair mode will ensue. Elgin Yamo tune is the only one who is EverLiving Who will not die and people and Jin they will die any the creation will die. So only Allah is perfect, and only he is worthy of such praise and

00:40:54--> 00:40:55

glorification.

00:40:56--> 00:41:45

Another way in which we can glorify Allah is that we we say Subhana Allah, He will be happy, Glory be to Allah and praise is to him, meaning I glorify Allah. And along with that I also praise Allah. And these words, we learned in a hadith that these are words that Allah subhanaw taala has chosen for his angels meaning these are the words that angels say. And this speech is the best speech it is the most virtuous speech that you say, Subhan Allah, He will be handy. And when you say Subhan Allah he will be happy to hear what are you doing? You're doing two things. First of all, you are declaring that Allah is free of all faults, right that he is, he is above any imperfection. I

00:41:45--> 00:41:55

mentioned to you the meaning of Subhanallah earlier, that Allah is perfect, He is beyond above any imperfection, fault deficiency, error,

00:41:56--> 00:42:47

similarity to the creation, having an equal anything like that, he is far above that. So when you say Subhan Allah, you are negating anything negative or inappropriate unbefitting from Allah subhanaw taala but when you say along with that will be handy and I also praise him, while praising him, I glorify Allah, what are you doing? How is to mention the perfect traits of Allah, right. So now you are affirming the most perfect traits of Allah. So this is complete and perfect praise, that on the one hand, you negate anything negative, anything inappropriate anything unbefitting and on the other hand, you affirm those things, those traits which are befitting which are appropriate,

00:42:47--> 00:42:48

which Allah is worthy.

00:42:50--> 00:43:44

So this is perfect praise and this is real towhead that yes, our Lord is free of any fault. And he is perfectly good, he is all good. So superheroine Allah he will be happy Subhan Allah he will be handy. You see, sometimes there are some negative thoughts that we may have about Allah, at those times, Say Subhan Allah he will be harmed he, no, my Lord is perfect. He is He is. He is always praiseworthy. He is always good. He has not made a mistake. He has not done anything wrong. He has not been unjust Subhan Allah he will be handy. Another way in which we can glorify Allah is that we say Subhan Allah he will be happy Subhan Allah healer Aleem similar words with the addition of

00:43:44--> 00:44:44

Subhan Allah who are leave that how perfect Allah is and I praise him and how perfect Allah is the most great Subhana Allah here are lean. And these words the Prophet sallallahu earlier said them said that they are light on the tongue but they are heavy in the scale and they are beloved to a man Allah subhanaw taala loves these words, any an easy way of earning reward from Allah subhanaw taala an easy way of of earning his approval that we say these words so behind Allah he will be handy he Subhanallah hit our lien and there are lien is the one who is ever Great. Any so great, that our intellect, our eyes, our ears, our mind cannot encompass his greatness. We cannot fathom His

00:44:44--> 00:44:59

greatness. He is greater than what we can even imagine then what we can comprehend. Subhanallah Hill alim, this is why Glory be to Allah Who is Ali who is so great. We learned

00:45:00--> 00:45:37

I could see was the article to see you somehow it will up while I will do have Luma who who allegedly you are lame. And he is so great that he is perfect in all of his attributes, and no one can praise Him the way that he is worthy of any no matter how much someone praises him. Allah subhanaw taala is even greater. So he is even, he is deserving of even more praise. Another way in which we can glorify and praise Allah, is that we say Subhan Allah will hamdulillah wala Illa Illa Allah will Allahu Akbar.

00:45:39--> 00:45:40

And these words,

00:45:41--> 00:46:26

we learn that when a person says them, Allah subhanaw taala answers, and you when you say Subhana Allah, Glory be to Allah, Allah says, You have spoken the truth when you say Alhamdulillah, all praises to Allah, Allah replies. So doctor, you have spoken the truth, la Illa Illa Allah there is no God worthy of worship but Allah Allah answers, you have spoken the truth. You say Allahu Akbar, Allah is the Greatest of answers, you have spoken the truth. So busy your tongue with these words, another way in which we can glorify Allah is Subhan Allah he will be handy he a selfie the Lucha Tobu LA, Glory be to Allah and I praise him, Praise be to Him. I seek forgiveness from Allah and I

00:46:26--> 00:46:27

repent to Him.

00:46:28--> 00:47:05

These words, we learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say these words a lot, and I shall do learn more on her notice that and she inquired, she asked him about that, that how can you say these words so much? So he explained that my Lord informed me that I would see a sign in my Oma. So when I see it, I often recite these words, because Allah subhanaw taala says either Java and Scala, he will find what are at NASA Toluna feedin Ilahi, a forger for Sabir behind the rock because don't fill in who can tell

00:47:06--> 00:47:21

that when the conquest is there, the help of Allah arrives, the conquest is there you see people entering Islam in groups, then glorify Allah, and seek forgiveness from him. And this shows us that a very beautiful lesson, that when we see

00:47:22--> 00:47:34

you know, the good result of our efforts, so for example, we are striving to complete a project and then we reach its completion. We,

00:47:35--> 00:48:21

you know, we, for example, we complete an act of worship. You see, for example, your child accomplishing something, you you and your child worked very hard on that. Then what should you do, glorify Allah and seek forgiveness from him also glorify Allah that yeah, Allah is only because of you that I was able to do this, that we were able to do this. So all praises yours. All thanks to you, the credit goes to you. And I seek forgiveness from you. Why because I know my shortcomings. I know the errors that I have made in this journey. So you forgive me for all those mistakes. Subhan Allah he will be handy. A selfie De La Hoya Tobu LA. Another way in which we can glorify Allah is

00:48:21--> 00:48:41

that we say Subhana Allah he will be handy or the hulky warrior ba Nuptse was in a towel she will be that the Kalima tea. These words are so beautiful. And Hadith we learned that once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was with JD it'll be a long line, huh? And in the morning after Judge

00:48:42--> 00:49:29

Judy de la Mourinho was you know, in her masala in her in her prayer place, and after her Salah she was you know, busy in in liquid, the Prophet sallallahu Urdu said and left and then after some time he returned and she was still sitting there glorifying and praising Allah and you know, doing the Riba, the Prophet sallallahu producer them asked her that, have you been sitting here since I left? And she said yes. He then said that since leaving you, I said three times for phrases, which if weighed against all the to have done during this period would prove to be heavier. What are these words Subhan Allah he will be handy. Glory be to Allah. And I praise him Allah is free from

00:49:29--> 00:49:59

imperfection and I begin with his praise, or the hulky as many times as the number of his creatures, what do you learn of See, in accordance with His good pleasure was in a towel she equal to the weight of his throne when me Dad, Kelly, Matty, and equal to the ink that may be used in recording his words. So if so, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said this three times and he said that if these words are weighed against all the Jews,

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

have been saying and doing since the morning, these words will be heavier in terms of reward.

00:50:06--> 00:50:40

You see, sometimes you are busy in the morning, if you have children, if you have young children who are dependent on you, you know your family needs you in the morning, you don't have the luxury to sit in your masala and continue to, you know, worship Allah. So there is a difference between those who know and those who don't know, when you have in, of how to glorify and praise Allah, in such beautiful words, you don't miss out on rewards. So make sure that you say these words in the morning no matter how busy you are.

00:50:42--> 00:51:06

These words they mean first of all, Subhan Allah he will be handy. We have discussed this earlier, or under the hulky meaning I glorify Allah, as many times as the number of his creatures, and what is the number of the creatures of Allah. Any, it's

00:51:08--> 00:51:12

immeasurable anyway, we can't even count because

00:51:13--> 00:52:11

every second every moment, more and more creatures are being created. We think about it, if you consider just the number of the angels that on Vatan, Mahmood 1000s of angels worship Allah, right. And they only get one chance. And every day, a fresh group of angels gets to worship Allah subhanaw taala over there, and they get their turn only once. So every day there are 1000s and 1000s of angels. Alright, so multiply the number of days by 70,000 That's just the number of the angels. And how many days is it? Has it been? Anyone you study the Earth? It's certainly millions of years old. Any how many days? Has it been? That everyday a fresh group of angels comes in worships Allah

00:52:11--> 00:52:27

subhanaw taala then if you look at the tiniest of creatures, you know, for example, a virus a bacteria tiny tiny, they multiply so quickly so many of them are there. So are the Hopi? What's that number

00:52:28--> 00:53:10

you know of his creatures? We can't count them. So are the hulky any infinitely? And Allah subhanaw taala tells us when Maryana mood you know the Rebecca Allahu nun knows the forces the are the troops of your Lord except he. So this means that you are glorifying Allah limitlessly infinitely Subhan Allah he will be handy, our other than healthy. What do you learn MC? What do you learn Upsee as in accordance with His good pleasure meeting, I glorify Him with as much glorification and praise that he would be pleased with

00:53:11--> 00:54:02

what Allah subhanaw taala loves for himself. Any basically what you're saying is that I do not have enough words. And I don't know how much or even if I were to sit all day, all night, it would not be sufficient. So I praise and glorify Allah, as much as he would be pleased with was in at the oshi as much as the weight of his throne and the throne is the largest the biggest creation of Allah subhanaw taala. The kursi is smaller than the throne and about the kursi Allah subhanaw taala says was the ikusi use our tool, the kursi encompasses it has the capacity for the heavens and the earth combined. Any It's way bigger than the heavens and the earth. So basically, more than the known

00:54:02--> 00:54:31

universe, though the kursi is far greater than that. And the throne the ash is even greater than that. Allahu Akbar. So I praise and glorify Allah as equal to the weight of his throne. When me Dad Kelly Mati And I glorify and praise Allah equal to the ink that may be used in recording the words of Allah. And what are the calamata of Allah, the Kalamata Allah are both comi and chattery. County is basically those words of Allah

00:54:33--> 00:54:43

you know of his decree, okay. Which are far too great, far too many, far too powerful to be contained in writing.

00:54:45--> 00:54:59

For example, we say are the weekend imati lightower muddiman cool college a plan and will have met a woman kuleana lamb any I seek refuge in the Perfect Words of Allah. Why? Because they're there. They're too great. They're too powerful.

00:55:01--> 00:55:13

And the word of Allah is, is the word with which He decrees, right? For example can be, and Kalamata Allah also include the Kalima that he has spoken to his

00:55:14--> 00:56:02

chosen slaves, meaning his shared era, the the books that he has revealed, the revelation that he has sent. And the words of Allah are so many that we are in the Quran, that even if all of the trees were pens and the ocean were ink, and then after that, those are you know, the oceans were replenished with seven more oceans, the words of Allah would still not run out, there would still be more words to write, Allahu Akbar. So I praise and glorify Allah, that much Subhana Allah who would be handy or the hulky when you burn up, see, was in a thorough Toshi. He won't be there, the Kalima tea. Another way we can glorify Allah is that we say Allahu Akbar Kabira Well, Hamdu lillahi

00:56:02--> 00:56:28

cathedra or Subhan, Allah He bukata will say that Allah is truly great praise be to Allah in abundance, and Glory be to Allah in the morning. And in the evening, we learned a hadith that a man said these words at the beginning of Salah, and the Prophet sallallahu already said, I'm asked afterwards the who said these words, and the man said I did. The Prophet sallallahu earlier said them said that

00:56:29--> 00:57:01

the gates of the heavens were open for these words, the gates of the heavens Ababa summer were open for these words. So even our model de la Martin who, who was there at the time, he said that I never stopped saying these words since I heard the Prophet sallallahu already said them say that. So this means that we should also say it at the beginning of Salla, Allahu Akbar Kabira will hum the delay Kathy Raava Subhan Allah He Macatawa sila, and especially on the day of read, we should say these words because that is a day of tech Pirot.

00:57:02--> 00:57:11

Then another way we can glorify Allah is that we say Subhana Allah who will be Home Depot with Avara Kosmo Kawada Allah just took our La Ilaha you took

00:57:12--> 00:57:57

that glory and praise us to you or Allah bless it is your name, exalted as Your Majesty, none has the right to be worshipped but you we can say these words at the beginning of summer. Another way is that we say Subhan Allah luxury color. lol MOLKO Allah will hand Wahoo Allah Alicia in Cody, La hawla wala Quwata illa Allah Subhana Allah he will be handy with a radula Omar who reported that these words are words which Allah subhanaw taala loves the most. Because in these words you are glorifying Allah, you are declaring his oneness. You are saying that he is worthy of all praise that he is able to do all things there is no power in mind except with Allah. And again you glorify and

00:57:57--> 00:57:57

praise Allah.

00:57:58--> 00:58:47

Then another way is to say Allah whom Allah can hum the Kulu where he laika yelagiri Umrah Kulu, that Oh ALLAH For You is all Praise and all matters returned to you. A man as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Messenger of Allah, teach me a DUA, so that Allah Who will benefit me because of it, in it teach me something that I can say, so that I can, so that Allah will benefit me, Allah will give me what I am in need of, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught him these words, because in these words, we are not only praising and glorifying Allah, but we are also expressing his oneness, that to Allah return all matters and his perfect power that

00:58:48--> 00:59:20

nothing escapes Allah. Another way we can glorify Allah is that we say Allah moto banana kill hound mill or somehow summer worth women, all women come and shake them in Shea embargo, that Oh ALLAH our love for you is praise that would fill the heavens and the earth and fill that which will please you besides them and these words we can say when we get up from record, you know sometimes when we get it from actually most of the time when people get it from the record, they just say Samir Allah Who lumen Hamidah or banana

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

But we learned that the Prophet sallallahu already said and would also say this, that Allah humara banana Kala, Oh Allah, our Lord, You deserve all praise, how much milk was somehow the fill of the skies meaning as much praise that would, that would fill the skies woman will or the fill of the earth and the fill of whatever you wish after that meaning whatever is greater than the heavens and the earth combined even. So, we can say this in Salah. Another way we can glorify Allah and inshallah we will conclude with this is super high.

01:00:00--> 01:00:23

Allah He or the DOMA Haluk Subhan Allah He mill our Haluk Subhan Allah here either the mafia, RB was sama Subhana Allah He mill MF is somehow he will Allah Subhana Allah He mill Amar Haluk Subhana Allah He rather than our psyche Dabboo was Subhan Allah He mil a cliche, Glory be to Allah

May He give us the ability to be of those who remember him who remember him a lot. who call upon him by his beautiful names. Yeah, buddy are some Awatea Hi, you you're quite young in the look.
