Order bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim Bismillah Al Rahman Al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. I seek refuge in Allah against the accursed Shaitan. In the Name of Allah. We begin by taking the blessing Name of Allah, Allah who is Entirely Merciful, Allah who is Especially Merciful. Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen. All praise is due to Allah, Who is the Lord of the Worlds. Allah is a Rahman Al Rahim, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. We begin by seeking refuge in Allah, and by taking the name of Allah. And then we say that all praise is due to Allah. We take the name of Allah, over and over again, as we begin the Quran. Remember that the name of Allah, Allah is

00:01:01 --> 00:02:09

will July Allah. This is Allah's primary name. It is the grand Name of Allah. It is the blessing word that is used to refer to the creator of the worlds, the owner of everything, the one who is perfect in and of himself, the one who is attributed with the best, most excellent qualities, the one who made us and the one whom we have to return to the one without whose permission, nothing can happen. Everything happens by his will. And by his permission. This is a law. We seek his refuge, we take his beautiful name, and we declare that all praise is for him exclusively. The word Allah is from the root letters Alif Lam, ha and Allaha literally means to turn to for protection. To find

00:02:09 --> 00:03:08

sanctuary with someone, Allah, the Lord, the Creator of everything is the one whom we find sanctuary with whom we find safety with. When Allah gives protection to someone, then that someone is safe. It is also said that the word hola is derived from the word le her same root letters olive lamb ha but the verb is Le her and Le her is to worship. So Allah is the One who is worshipped, meaning the one who actually deserves to be worshipped, because anything else that is worshipped besides Allah, even if it is called God, even if it is called a deity, it does not actually become a daily, it is only Allah who is the real deity, the one who is truly worthy of worship. Why? Because Allah is Allah,

00:03:08 --> 00:04:01

Allah is the One who is perfect. So remember that the name of Allah incorporates within itself, all of the beautiful and excellent attributes of Allah. Because when Allah deserves worship, it means that he should know everything. It means that he should have power over everything. It means that he should be the one who is most Merciful and most kind, the one who is affectionate, it means that he has the power to create, he has the power to give life to give death to resurrect, he is the one who is perfect in his wisdom in his judgment. So remember that the name Allah incorporates within itself, all of the beautiful names and attributes of Allah azza wa jal. So it is Allah whose refuge

00:04:01 --> 00:04:59

we seek, because when a person begins to do something good, then shaytaan tries his best efforts to stop that person to make things difficult for that person. So are all do bIllahi min ash shaytani R rajim. And Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Again we take the name of Allah. But here we take the name of Allah by mentioning two more names of Allah. We say Allah who is alive man who is a Rahim Allah Eman is also a primary name of Allah, a name that is exclusive to Allah alone. No one else can be Rockman people can be merciful, but they can never be Rockman man is only Allah. Now the name Rockman and the name Rahim. Both are derived from Rama and Rama generally means mercy. It's understood as

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


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

tion or pity or kindness. So, Allah is very merciful and remember that mercy is a rule that Allah subhanaw taala has made for himself. And when you look at the word Rama, a very similar word is Raheem Rahim is the womb and the womb, where a baby where a human being develops, is first of all, a safe sanctuary for the fetus. And it is also a place of nutrition, a place of growth, it is a world in itself. And if that warmth does not function properly, the fetus cannot stay, it cannot survive, it cannot grow, it will be aborted, it will be expelled from the body. So, Rama Allah's Mercy is something that we all depend upon, that we are all in desperate need of, if it was not for the Mercy

00:06:01 --> 00:07:02

of Allah, we would not exist. If it was not for the Mercy of Allah, we would not show compassion to each other. So Allah is a Rahman and Allah Imam means the raw material where Sarah, that he is the Possessor of great all encompassing mercy, vast mercy, mercy, that is incomparable mercy that no one else has sold a man shows us the nature of the Mercy of Allah, that it is great, it is excessive, it is abundant, it cannot be encompassed. It cannot be limited. Allah subhanaw taala has mercy is vast. And Allah subhanaw taala Allah man, he is merciful with the entire creation, all of the creation and we learned in Hadith, that it is because of the Mercy of Allah, that even animals show compassion to

00:07:02 --> 00:07:50

each other. Wild animals show compassion to each other. And if it was not for the Mercy of Allah, they wouldn't show compassion to each other. So Allah Jimin and then Allah heme look at the fact that two names that refer to Allah's mercy are mentioned together. Allah is on Rahman and Rahim, the repetition of the names the fact that there's two names coming from the same origin shows the greatness of Allah's mercy. But when we look at the meanings of these names, both of these names show that Allah is extremely merciful. And this shows us how great Allah subhanaw taala is mercy is Rahim is slightly different from the name Rahman Rahim is the one who is continuously merciful as we

00:07:50 --> 00:07:54

learn in the Quran, that we can have been meaning or Hema

00:07:55 --> 00:08:57

that a Rahman is the one who is merciful towards all and Rahim is the one who will continuously be merciful towards the believers towards his special slaves in the hereafter as well. So the word man reflects it denotes Allah's general mercy, Rama to Lama wa rahmatullah wa Sara. And Rahim, the name Rahim denotes Rama to Casa Allah has special mercy, the mercy that is reserved that is exclusively for those whom Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst them. So Allah, Allah Eman and Rahim and remember that it is a man who has I love Al Quran who has taught the Quran. The Quran is one of the gifts of Allah subhana wa Tada it is an expression of Allah

00:08:57 --> 00:09:58

subhanaw taala is mercy. Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen all praise is for Allah alone. All praise is due to Allah Who is an unbeliever, Alameen who is Lord of the Worlds what is hummed? How generally it means praise. But when we look at the word hand, it doesn't just mean to praise and to glorify someone hand is to mention the most perfect qualities of someone it is to describe someone with their most perfect qualities and attributes. So how does not just saying you're so nice, how is more specific it is to mention the specific qualities. So how does not just general praise it is specific praise. Now sometimes what happens is that, you know, we praise people, not because they're

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

deserving of it, but because we

00:10:00 --> 00:10:49

Just want them to be happy. Like, for example, your child brings you something, something that they have made something that they have drawn, and you think that they've done an average job, but your child is so excited. And because you love your child, you said, This is amazing. This is excellent. So you say it's excellent. You say it's perfect. Is it really because it's perfect? No. We know that there are a lot of people who are praised when they don't actually deserve that praise. But how is to praise the one who is actually praiseworthy, who is actually deserving of that praise. So hand is sincere, true praise for the one who is deserving of that praise. But there is another thing about

00:10:49 --> 00:11:47

hand hand is to praise someone with love, with reverence with respect, with humility, with admiration, with gratitude. So it is not to empty praise. It is a thankful, loving, sincere praise. It is praise with gratitude. Alhamdulillah all praise all thanks, are for Allah because Allah is truly deserving of that. No one is deserving of perfect praise of all praise, because no one is as perfect as Allah, it is only Allah subhanaw taala who is perfect in every way. Now the thing is that sometimes how is also understood as thanks, you know, when you say Alhamdulillah, for example, after you eat something, in a way you are thanking Allah, when you want to thank Allah you say

00:11:47 --> 00:12:42

Alhamdulillah. But remember, that hand is slightly different from sugar. Sugar is also to thank someone but there is a difference between hand and sugar hand is to praise someone over everything that they have done everything but sugar is to thank someone for a favor. You understand the difference? For example, if someone were to give you a gift, you thank them. Right? You say shukran thank You that You gave me a gift. But what if someone gave your sibling a gift? But they did not give you a gift? Would you think that? Would you say thank you for not giving me a gift? No, you don't thank them. So sugar is only in return for a favor. hound on the other hand, is to praise

00:12:42 --> 00:13:34

someone for everything. hummed is to praise Allah for everything over everything. So we say Alhamdulillah for things that are easy, and also for things that are difficult. We say Alhamdulillah for the blessings, and for the trials, we say Alhamdulillah for getting the things we like, and also Alhamdulillah for the difficulties that we face in our lives. When we receive something good, like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say Alhamdulillah Hilary binaire mudita Timo Salah had all praises for Allah, by whose blessing good things are completed. But when he saw something that he disliked when something was difficult, burdensome, he would say Alhamdulillah here Allah Cooney

00:13:34 --> 00:14:26

has all praises for Allah, over every condition, in whatever condition that I'm in. Allah is still deserving of praise. Why? Why is Allah deserving of praise, even when we are suffering, or even when we are experiencing pain, even when we are going through difficulty, because Allah subhanaw taala is perfect in his decisions. When Allah subhanaw taala takes something from us, He gives us something else in its place. When Allah subhanaw taala puts us in hardship. That's not a mistake. That's not an error on the part of Allah. This is a decision of Allah based on his perfect wisdom, and his perfect judgment. So for example, in a hadith we learned that Allah subhanaw taala wants a servant

00:14:26 --> 00:14:42

to reach a certain level to reach a certain status. But that person is not able to reach that status, that position just by their good deeds, they're not able to do that. So Allah subhanaw taala puts that person in a trial.

00:14:43 --> 00:14:59

And so what happens now that person is patient, and then Allah subhanaw taala puts that person in another trial, that person is patient again, and that person is patient again. And so through their patience over trial, they reach a position where

00:15:00 --> 00:15:51

which they could not have reached just by doing good deeds. So alhamdulillah means all thanks and all praise to Allah Allah is perfect, regardless of what I'm going through, regardless of what we are going through, because Allah is perfect in himself, and hamdulillah another thing is that how sound is with the tongue, meaning how sound is praised that is verbally expressed. It's the Kalima. It's the words of a shacket of a person who is expressing gratitude. But on the other hand, sugared gratitude does not really have to be expressed. You can feel grateful in your heart. But it's possible that you don't express it. So for example, someone gives you a gift, and you feel grateful.

00:15:51 --> 00:16:43

You were meant to send them a thank you message, but you forgot. Did you feel grateful? Yes, you did. But you did not express the things you did not express it verbally. how sound is to verbally express the gratitude and praise hand is only with the tongue. This is why we are told Welco little hamdulillah say Alhamdulillah say all praises to Allah. So Allah hamdulillah ultimate and absolute praise is for Allah and Lin Allah, for Allah alone, not for anyone else. Because you know what? Even our parents, you know, for example, when they make a decision to not give us something, or think about your childhood, when you were disciplined in certain ways, you may disagree with that. Now,

00:16:43 --> 00:17:28

you may feel that they were unfair, you may feel that they were a bit too harsh. You may feel that they were maybe neglectful towards you. You may feel that they were unfair. And that's possible because they are human. Human beings are not perfect. No matter how knowledgeable no matter how loving, no matter how friendly no matter how compassionate someone is, because they're human. They can be wrong in their decisions. They can be biased in their decisions. They can make mistakes in their decisions. Allah subhanaw taala Alhamdulillah he never makes a mistake. Lie your will Laura be while I answer. Musa alayhis salam said My Lord does not make a mistake and my Lord does not forget.

00:17:29 --> 00:18:19

He does not make an error he does not forget 1/5 our own asked Mossad, his sunnah that what is this Lord that you are talking about? Musa listen, I'm explained that he is the Lord of He is our Lord and your Lord and the Lord of the people before us and the Lord of the people now and those that will come later he is the Lord of all. So alhamdulillah Rob Bilaal Amin, who is the Lord of the worlds and Rob means three things Rob means Holic Malik, and with a vision, remember these three words and make sure you write them down Holic as in creator Malik, as in master owner, and with a bit as in the planner, there is another word which is from the same root which is total BIA and

00:18:19 --> 00:19:15

tarbiyah is to nurture and to cause something to grow. And this is what Rob does. Rob is the one who originates, who creates something and because He has created it, he brought it into existence, he owns it and then he nurtures it causes it to grow and develop. So he provides that thing, whatever that it needs, in order to grow in order to develop. And then the ROB is the one who causes that object that creation to reach the state of completion and perfection. Meaning without the rub, none of us would exist. Without Allah, we would not breathe without Allah, we would not be able to see because in order to live in order to exist, there are so many things that we are in need off in

00:19:15 --> 00:19:40

order to function. Think about it, just to be able to sit where you are sitting. What are you in need off, you are in need of your body cooperating with you. You are in need of having some level of control over your body, your brain being fully in connection with your limbs. You need your nervous system to be in order. In order to sit like this. You need your muscles in your bones to cooperate with you.

00:19:41 --> 00:19:59

And he think about everything that we need in order to just take one breath even as we inhale. So many things are going on, starting from the tip of our nose to the inside of our nose, and then the connection between the nose and the lungs.

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

And then how oxygen it's dispersed throughout the body through the blood Allahu Akbar, club Bill Alameen. Allah subhanaw taala is not just sustaining you, your body, he's also sustaining the body of the person sitting next to you, who is in the same house as you who is on the street. Every single one of us, Rob Bell, Al Amin, Al Amin includes all the creatures, all the creatures, angels, humans, genes, micro organisms, even bacteria, things that we can see with the eye things that we cannot see with the eye. Allah is the Creator, He is the owner, and he is the Sustainer of All the Worlds. So tell me, does Allah not deserve all praise? How perfectly is created everything, how

00:20:51 --> 00:21:35

beautifully he is providing everyone? How beautifully in ways that we cannot even imagine in ways that we cannot even understand what interrupt duniya Matala he loved her. So her if you were to enumerate the blessings of Allah, you wouldn't be able to enumerate them, you wouldn't be able to count them. So alhamdulillah all praises to Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah mean who is the Lord of the Worlds, he is truly deserving of it, he is worthy of it. And so we praise him. Even now we praise him Alhamdulillah that he has given us the ability to learn the Quran. So inshallah we will end our lesson over here for today. And in the next class, I'm going to begin with a quick recap of the

00:21:35 --> 00:22:02

first idea and Hamdu lillahi rabbil aalameen And then inshallah we're going to go over that the scene of the rest of the sutra, your homework is that I want you to try your best to memorize the translation of Surah Fatiha inshallah. And then we will go over to the seed of the surah Okay. Subhan Allah whom will be handed a shadow Allah ilaha illa. Anta Astell Furukawa to the lake was salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
