Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:45--> 00:01:37

Are we the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim rubbish slightly further away a silly emri watch Lula rock data melissani yufka who Kohli along my the Colby was sadly Sani was flutes of Hema taco lB erminia opal alameen inshallah we'll begin today's session on the Beautiful Names of Allah the Exalted a smell, Allah heal her SNA With the name of Allah, Allah Aziz Aziz, meaning the ever Almighty. Allah Aziz, the name of Allah, Allah Aziz occurs 92 times in the Quran, Allah subhana wa tada says, well, Illa Hill methylone Allah will who will or Aziz will Hakeem and for Allah is the highest attribute and he is

00:01:37--> 00:02:09

the Exalted in Might, the Wise. So the name of Allah, Allah Aziz occurs as I mentioned 92 times in the Quran, and Allah Aziz means the lawyer is meaning the one who has all Riza meaning all completely and entirely is, belongs to Allah subhanaw taala. And what does is basically mean is it has four meanings. The first meaning of the word there is a is a

00:02:10--> 00:03:02

meaning, honor and dignity. So we learn in the Quran that Allah subhanaw taala says, well, Illa healer is Zettel, well, he rasuluh he will move meaning that all honor and dignity belong to Allah to His Messenger and to the believers. So Allah Aziz means the one who is ever honorable. Then secondly, the word is also means goolwa or power and might. So we learned in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala mentions that he sent two messengers to a people and then Farzana, be fairly thin, and then we strengthen them with a third. So meaning we added to their power to their might with a third. So, Allah Aziz, meaning Allah subhanaw taala is the one who is ever powerful, ever mighty.

00:03:02--> 00:03:58

And then thirdly, the word is also means an MTR. And MTR means to resist and to withstand. So Allah Aziz is the one who is invincible, meaning he is not to be overcome, he is unattainable, meaning it is not possible for people to harm him or to, you know, to compete with him. And then finally, the fourth meaning of the word Riza is a her and helaba meaning to conquer and prevail. So we learn in the Quran, that a disputant who came to the world early his Salaam, he said was any filthy thought that this person, this other person, or zenni, he overcame me meaning he defeated me in argument. So arza also means to conquer and to prevail over someone to overcome them. So Allah subhanaw taala

00:03:58--> 00:04:48

Allah Aziz is who the one who overcomes and conquers and prevails, and he is not to be overcome. Now, keeping these four meanings of Riza in mind, what does it mean for Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala is Allah Aziz. So this means that he is the most honorable, meaning no one nobody is more important and more honorable than Allah subhanaw taala and that means that we should show that that dignity and power at the end that respect to him, that when Allah subhanaw taala it is a disease meaning no one is more honorable than him, then we should think of Allah in that way and we should worship Him and we should stand before him. In that way. We learn the Quran Suba Han or

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

beaker or biller is at a Maya seafood that Allah subhanaw taala is glorified. He is perfect. He's the Lord of all honor and dignity meaning all honor is his

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

Allah subhanaw taala is Allah Aziz? Meaning he has the power to do whatever that he wants, meaning nothing at all is hard for him. He is the possessor of strength, who faces no incapacity, meaning he does not suffer from any weakness. And then Allah subhanaw taala is a disease, meaning his might transcends all might and power, so nothing can defeat him. No one can harm him as we learn in the Hadees, that Allah subhanaw taala says that all my servants, you will never be able to harm me learn Tableau who burns burry, meaning you will never be able to harm me and you will never be able to benefit me. And then Allah subhanaw taala is Allah Aziz? Meaning that he is severe in his

00:05:48--> 00:06:11

punishment. And then He is Allah Aziz, meaning he is the store of honor of power of might have strength, and he gives her Iza to whomsoever He wills, and he takes it away from whomsoever He wills as we learn in the Quran. What there is zoom and Tasha, what were the lumen Tasha that you give honor to whom you will,

00:06:13--> 00:06:59

and you'll give might and power to whom you will. And then what to the lumen Tasha, you humiliate you bring down whomsoever you will. And when Allah subhanaw taala is Allah Aziz it means that his friends, his helpers, are not to be humiliated, those who believe in Him, Allah subhanaw taala will also give them honor and dignity and he will strengthen them with help from himself. Now when we look at the name of Allah, Allah Aziz and the Quran we see that it is paired with some beautiful names. So first of all, we see that the name of Allah Allah, Allah Aziz, is paired with Arlene. So for example, we learn in the Quran Valley katako, the rule Aziza Eileen, that this is the decree of

00:06:59--> 00:07:51

the one who is a disease, all mighty, and Arlene, the one who knows, meaning Allah subhanaw taala has might, is with his perfect knowledge, we see that when the creation has some might and power, we see that we begin to abuse our power, or we don't even realize what we are able to do with the power that Allah subhanaw taala has given us meaning, our power and ability is paired with what with our ignorance and foolishness, with oppression with abuse of power, and Allah subhanaw taala is free of any such fault. Then we see that the name of Allah, Allah Aziz is also paired with a Hakeem in the Quran. So we learned why alum and Allah Aziz and Hakeem that you should know that Allah subhanaw

00:07:51--> 00:08:40

taala is almighty and all wise, meaning again, his power is with his wisdom, he does not abuse his power, he does not oppress with his power, rather he is all wise in what he decides in what he carries out in his creation. And then we see that the name of Allah Allah Aziz is also paired with a little food Subhanallah her food and her father meaning the one who is ever forgiving in the law, I Azizullah for meaning on the one hand, the last panel tada is mighty in his punishment, severe in his punishment, and at the same time, he's also forgiving. So, the name of Allah Aziz, it instills fear in us a button, this fear should not be such that we, you know, we are incapacitated by that

00:08:40--> 00:09:27

fear or we become paralyzed by that fear. At the same time, we have also been given hope that Allah is of a fool. We learn robusta Murthy will early well my bainer Houma Allah Azizullah far he is olara Z's, the mighty and luffa Perpetual Forgiver. And then we see that the name of Allah, Allah Aziz is also paired with a Hamid meaning the one who is praiseworthy. So He is the Lord of honor meaning very honorable, and he's also perfect in his being, which is why he is worthy of praise, whether or not people praise Him, we see that when it comes to the creation. A lot of times people may have a lot of power and you know, status, but that doesn't mean that they are, you know, good in

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

in who they are good in what they do, or that they possess any qualities which make them praiseworthy. Allah soprano thada is an Aziz and and Hamid, He is the Lord of honor, and he is also praiseworthy. And then we see that the name of Allah Allah Aziz is also paired with a Rahim so Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, what what kill Allah Allah Aziza Rahim rely upon the one who is mighty and merciful. Subhana Allah, that Allah subhanaw taala is power

00:10:00--> 00:10:55

He prevails, he is not to be overcome, but at the same time he is also very, very merciful towards his servants. So when Allah subhanaw taala is mighty, then what is it that we should do? First of all, we should remember that we are the slaves, the servants, the worshipers of Allah Aziz, realize who your Lord is the one who is most powerful, the one who is honorable, the one who cannot be defeated, the one who prevails and overcomes. So when you realize that this is your Lord whom you worship, then be confident, be brave, be strong. Yes, things get really difficult at times, but realize that the challenge you face is nothing before Allah subhanaw taala the difficulty that you

00:10:55--> 00:11:16

have before you is nothing before Allah subhanaw taala with the help of Allah Aziz, with the strength that Allah Aziz gives you, in sha Allah, you'll be able to deal with it. So realize who servant you are, and whose help you are seeking and this realization will bring about strength and courage and confidence in you.

00:11:17--> 00:12:04

Secondly, when Allah subhanaw taala is Allah Aziz that means, that we should realize that all dignity and honor is with Allah, meaning, if we want to be honorable, then we have to seek it from Allah, we have to seek that honor and dignity from Allah, meaning by worshiping Allah, not by turning away from him, and not by disobeying him, you see, sometimes in order to, you know, look good in the eyes of people, or in order to you know, in order to become famous, a lot of times people will do things that are in clear disobedience to Allah, in order to be accepted by people. And in order to be, you know, famous or, or, you know, worthy in the eyes of people. Sometimes we

00:12:04--> 00:12:53

bring ourselves down, how by disobeying Allah subhanaw taala and that is absolutely, you know, it's it's not helpful at all. It's this strategy is never going to work. Because dignity comes from Allah, He is the source of dignity and and honor. So if we want dignity and honor, then we have to first and foremost be obedient to Allah subhanaw taala This is why we're taught that men Cana UD doula is zetta Family Law healer is to Jumeirah, that whoever desires honor, whoever wants honor, then they should realize that all honor belongs to Allah, meaning you cannot have it unless and until Allah subhanaw taala gives it to you. And then we see that yes, there are people who are

00:12:53--> 00:13:39

clearly disobeying Allah, and yet they are, you know, treated with a lot of honor and respect to the world. They attain, you know, a lot of greatness in the world, but remember that that is that is just temporary. It's it's not permanent, permanent result is in being a servant to Allah subhanaw taala. So we want honor not just in this world, we want it forever, in the hereafter also. So, Allah subhanaw taala is the source of honor. So we should remain true to him and obedient to Him. And then this also means that we should seek honor in the right way. So for example, a less penalty Allah tells us what in the hula Kitab una Aziz, he describes his book that the Quran is an honorable book,

00:13:40--> 00:14:24

meaning if we want honor, then we better get attached to the book of Allah because it is also a source of honor. And then, thirdly, when Allah subhanaw taala is allowed disease This means that we should be humble before Allah, and also before the servants of Allah, meaning when he is so when Allah subhanaw taala is almighty and all honor is with him, then we should not think highly of ourselves. Why? Because no matter how high we become, who is still higher than us, no matter how important we become, and no matter what, you know, titles we get, and no matter what we put on our resumes, what pieces of paper we have, still Allah subhanaw taala is all honorable. So no matter

00:14:24--> 00:14:59

what we achieve, or we don't achieve, we should be humble before Allah subhana wa tada and also before people meaning before the creation of Allah. So for example, we learn in a Hadees that when a servant shows pardon, meaning when a person forgives others, then Allah subhanaw taala increases that person in honor and dignity. So the way to honor and dignity is not by you know, bragging or by exerting your you know, your your power over others. No, it is through the way

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

Have humility and that is what we see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did. So Allah subhanaw taala Allah Aziz, the truly honorable one, the powerful, Mighty One, the one who is undefeatable and the one who conquers and prevails. The next Name of Allah subhanaw taala that we will look at is the name of Allah, Allah Jabbar.

00:15:24--> 00:16:18

Al Jabbar a beautiful name, every name of Allah is beautiful. And this name sopran Allah it is mentioned in the Quran and we see that it is mentioned once in the Quran in surah to hash out where las panatela mentions a lot of his names that hula hula de la ilaha illa who and medical could do salaamu mineral mohe mineralization Jabbar al Jabbar, the compeller this is who Allah exalted is. So, what is the meaning of the word Jabbar, we see that the word Jabbar is from Jabra, okay. And jabber basically means two things. Okay? The first meaning of the word Jabra is to set a bone meaning when a bone is broken, then you put it on a JIRA, JIRA splint, okay? Meaning you you take

00:16:18--> 00:17:07

pieces of wood together, this is what what the people would do back in the day, and they would, you know, arrange those pieces of wood around the bone so that the bone would stay in place, and eventually he'll so Jabara is splints. So Jabra is to fix a bone basically, to restore it from a fractured state. Okay, now, if you think about it, in order to do that a person has to go through a lot of discomfort, right, your bone is just your arm is just fixed in one place in one position, you cannot stretch it you cannot, you know, move it around. So it's almost like you're confined and you're being compelled to stay in one place. Right? So the second meaning of the word Jabara from

00:17:07--> 00:17:33

this route, we get the word Jabara, which is to compel, or to restrain, or to constrain another, okay? Meaning against someone's will. So two meanings of the word jubba. First, to restore to fix what is broken, and then secondly, to compel, or to force someone against their will. Now, when we go back to the first meaning to set a bone,

00:17:34--> 00:18:12

it doesn't just mean to restore a broken bone, it also means, you know, for example, when a person has become poor, they're they're suffering financially than someone helps them so that they're out of poverty, right. So, someone helped them and now, the the situation of this person has been restored, they have been given wealth, or they have been given, you know, a skill a means through which they can earn an income. So they're no longer dependent, they're no longer poor, rather, they have become self sufficient, right. So,

00:18:13--> 00:19:07

jumper then is not just to fix something broken, but it is also to restore or to improve someone's condition, meaning to fulfill their need. So for example, it is said Jabara hula meaning May God make make him strong, and and may God restore him, meaning May Allah subhanaw taala, fix, fix whatever is wrong with him, okay? And then when we go to the second meaning of Jabara, which is to compel or to restrain someone, to constrain someone meaning against their will, this is only possible by someone who is powerful and strong, meaning if someone is weak, they cannot compel another to do something against their will, right? It is only someone who is powerful, who is

00:19:07--> 00:20:00

strong, who is mighty, who is able to force someone else. So we see that Jabara in this meaning it's used for plants, so for example, touch Bruna bat nebat as in plants, when they when they become when they begin climbing, okay, we see that there's different types of plants. So, climbers, this word is used to describe them or Jabbar is also used for a palm tree, when it becomes really tall, so tall that you cannot reach the branches by hand, okay, you have to you know, use a ladder or something have to climb up the tree in order to reach the branches. So, so basically, it is so tall, that that you cannot reach it. Okay, so so this is the meaning of the word Jabba now.

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

When it comes to people we see that in the Quran the word Jabbar does come up quite a few times. But for people it comes only once in the Quran is the name of Allah. And whenever the word Jabbar is used for people it is used in a negative sense. Why because when people become Jabbar, it means that they're becoming merciless, you know, tyrannical, forceful, or that they are diluted by their power, or that they're so hard hearted that they don't get affected by any good advice, or that they have no compassion. So for example, we learn while I'm your journey, Jabbar and sharqiya right that Allah subhanaw taala has not made me a wretched tyrant. We learn what either bartosh done, but Ashton

00:20:46--> 00:21:08

Jabari, and when you attack people, you do so as tyrants the bunny is what you've said in the FIA Coleman Jabari, there are people in Jerusalem who are off tyrannical strength. So for people, this description is really not praiseworthy, because what befits us is humility, you know, cooperation.

00:21:10--> 00:21:55

But Allah subhanaw taala is Al Jabbar and this is praise for him. This is excellent for him. Why? Because first of all, when Allah subhanaw taala is algebra it means that he is above his servants. He is high above his servants meaning he is unattainable. He is supreme. So they can never attain his greatness, and they can never harm him. And and this is, you know, praise and perfection for Allah, soprano. thada when it comes to people, if people start acting this way, because first of all, people can never truly be Jabbar, right? Because no matter how powerful someone becomes, we see that sooner or later, they're defeated by someone else. And if it's not another human being, we see

00:21:55--> 00:22:46

that the Angel of Death comes, right so people any if they think that they are unattainable, then this is foolishness. And this is arrogance and pride which doesn't really fit human beings. So when Allah subhanaw taala is eligible. First of all, this means that he is high above his servants, they can never attain his greatness, and they can never ever harm him. Secondly, when Allah subhanaw taala is Al Jabbar, it means that he mends and restores the broken affairs of his servants in Mammoth debris explained this meaning, he said al Jabbar means and Muslim, meaning the one who restores and corrects the affairs of his creation, meaning he, he, he fixes their condition. So that

00:22:46--> 00:23:11

basically he sets their affairs right. And we experienced this in our lives, you know, we fall ill Allah subhanaw taala grants his health, we make mistakes and Allah subhanaw taala shows us you know, the way out of our problems, we face we experience heartbreaks, right. And then what an over time Allah subhanaw taala heals us. And

00:23:13--> 00:23:59

Allah subhanaw taala is a Jabbar which shows that first of all, we will break right and that we are not perfect, and our situation is not always perfect. And every now and then we do face trials. This is something that Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, right? This life is meant to be for what it's meant to be as a test, which means that there will be hardship, there will be loss, right, there will be some some sort of pain, some sort of difficulty. So in that state of brokenness and incompleteness, who is it that we are in need of we are in need of Allah subhanaw taala. So when we are in need of money, he is the one who who provides us when we are in need, he is the one who

00:23:59--> 00:24:48

fulfills our needs. When we are in hardship, he consoles our hearts, when we make mistakes, he pardons our sins and He hides our mistakes. So this is the meaning of algebra. And then, thirdly, when Allah subhanaw taala is eligible, it means that he prevails over his servants, meaning he is able to compel His servants to do whatever that he wants. And remember, that Allah soprano, Tatas decrees are of two kinds in either konia and irida sialorrhea meaning he he intends or he commands that something should happen in the world in the universe. And then there are those commands which Allah subhanaw taala has given us as religious commands that we have to observe we have to follow.

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

So he can command whatever he wants, and when it comes to Iraq konia there is no resisting it whatsoever. Meaning his will will

00:25:00--> 00:25:46

But we'll certainly prevail, his decision will certainly prevail. So for example, if Allah subhanaw taala decides that a person should become sick, or that a person should lose something, or it or that a person should, you know, move away from something, there's no avoiding that decree, his decision prevails because Allah subhanaw taala is algebra, whether we like it, or we don't, whether we want it, or we don't, whether we are ready for it, or we're not, whether we find it easy or we find it hard, Allah subhanaw taala is algebra and his his decision prevails, he prevails over his servants. So what is it that we should do then? What's our share? If Allah subhanaw taala is Al

00:25:46--> 00:26:35

Jabbar What should we do? First of all, it means that we should be humble, because this might empower befits only Allah subhanaw taala. When people behave as Jabarin, then this is something that Allah subhanaw taala does not like he does not approve off. We learn in the Quran will harbor kulu Jabbar in our need, that every obstinate stubborn person who was Jabbar meaning who was tyrannical, oppressive, arrogant, failed and suffered meaning such a person will only be defeated. So when a person becomes arrogant, then Allah subhanaw taala does not like that Allah Subhana Allah does not like Jabara people. So we should be humble. Secondly, when the last panel thought is algebra means

00:26:35--> 00:27:25

that we should ask him to mend us, right? to mend our brokenness, to restore a to to improve our condition. And look at yourself, you know, take a look at your life and reflect over what is messed up in your life, basically, where is it that you're struggling? Is it in your luck? Is it in terms of your patients? Is it in terms of how you speak to people? Is it in terms of, you know, your commitments? Is it in terms of your studies? Is it in terms of your, you know, relationships, is it in terms of your health, is it in terms of your wealth, your career, your source of income, whatever problem you feel exists in your life, wherever you feel that you are broken, you need improvement.

00:27:25--> 00:28:17

remember Allah subhanaw taala al Jabbar is able to fix your brokenness. So what is our responsibility that we turn to Him, we ask him, that he or Allah, you are eligible. Right? So mend my condition, you know, just as a bone is broken, and over time Subhanallah it heals any, when you look at it, if you've ever seen, you know, an X ray, and you look at a broken bone, you wonder how is this ever going to be fixed? You know, because, for example, when when a glass breaks, there is no way that you can fix it. Right? But when a bomb breaks, it's amazing. You can fix it, right? It heals over time. So just like that, whatever is you know, broken in your life, then Allah subhanaw

00:28:17--> 00:29:05

taala is able to mend that, so ask him and then when Allah subhanaw taala is a Jabbar, it means that we should surrender to Him and we should submit to Him because his decision will prevail. There is no fighting, no resisting, you know, even if we get upset with the lowest penalties decision, so what is that going to change anything? If we get angry, is that going to change anything? No. So our success and our salvation is in what it is in really to be, oh my love, I am pleased. I am happy with whatever that you have decided. And as we will learn later on, that Allah subhanaw taala is also a hacking an early and hobby, meaning he is wise. He knows he's fully aware. He knows what

00:29:05--> 00:29:52

you're going through. So when Allah subhanaw taala decides something, that decision is not random. It is with his wisdom, it is with some benefit. So our success lies in in surrendering to Allah subhanaw taala in Sandra Lee turabi anytime, you know, you feel weak before Allah subhanaw taala has decision that you know, you're trying to help yourself you're trying to fix your situation you have, you know, done whatever that was within your your ability and still you're not able to solve your problem. Just say it'll lead to a be my Lord, I am pleased with whatever that you have decided. Now I rely on you, because you are algebra only you are able to fix my condition. When it comes to the

00:29:52--> 00:29:59

name of a larger bar, we see that we should also use this name in our draws. So for example, the profit

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

Allahu alayhi wa sallam, in his record, he would say Subhana they'll Jabbar Ruth. Well, mela could well Kibriya he will Allah. You see, Jabbar Ruth. That job Ruth is from, from Jabba, same route, that Glory be to the one who has Jabbar Ruth meaning who is the owner of all Jabba Jabba Ruth meaning all power, while mela could all sovereignty while Kibriya all greatness, well, algoma all might. So Glory be to Him, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one night, he was actually a praying pmla

00:30:38--> 00:31:30

and one of the companions was with him, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he he recited long piano and then he ultimate long record. And that companion said that it was as if, you know, he spent as much time in recor as you would take to recite Surah Al Baqarah Subhan Allah, any such a long record and What was he saying in his record? This Subhana vilja Baruth Well, mallacoota will Kibriya he will Aloma so you literally lower yourself right you you bring yourself down before al Jabbar The one who is high and in that state of you know loneliness you you declare the greatness of the perfection of Allah subhanaw taala the fact that you are weak before him the fact that you

00:31:30--> 00:32:13

have surrendered before him why because he is truly great and and we are in need of him or zoa gel and then there is also the rock which has you know, the the narration has some weakness to it but when it comes to Gaza remember that as long as the wording is correct, even if there's weakness in the narration, there's inshallah nothing wrong with it as long as you don't say it with the intention that I'm saying it because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught it and this is Allah homophily or how many? What you Bernie? Were farney were Dini wa fini. What is zucchini? And and the meaning of this Dora is Allahumma fiddly Allah forgive me what how many have mercy on me

00:32:13--> 00:32:49

what you boonie and mend me fix my brokenness what farini and raise me Why didn't he guide me wife any grant me well being what zucchini and provide me. So this is also a beautiful dog meaning that the meaning is certainly beautiful and there's absolutely no harm in making this dog. And even if you cannot recall the entire dog just say would you boonie that Oh Allah men to me. mend my brokenness. Next name of Allah subhanaw taala it's two names that inshallah we will look at together and these names are l Kebede and Alma Taka bit

00:32:51--> 00:33:42

al Kabir and l Mata Kabir, Allah Subhana. Allah says in the Quran, hula hula de la ilaha illa who el Malecon could do so Salaam will McMinnville Mohammed Allah Aziz al Jabbar Ron moussaka bit in total hasher where so many names are mentioned after the name al Jabbar is the name Alma Taka bit the superior and then we see the name of Allah Al kabhi. Were an Allahu Allah Allah you'll Kebede. The fact is that Allah is the Most High, the grand so the name of Allah Alka bead occurs six times in the Quran and the name alma mater. COVID occurs once in the Quran. In a Hadees we learned that on the Day of Judgment, Allah Spano Tata will say that I am Jabbar, I am moussaka bid, I am Malik Where

00:33:42--> 00:34:22

are the kings of the earth? So this is a name that is definitely mentioned in Hades. Now, what is cubit Kippur? Remember, it's the opposite of smallness. So basically Cuba is greatness and greatness of course can be in different ways it can be in size, it can be in status, it can be in terms of power, it can be, you know, in terms of dignity, or the way that you perceive you perceive things. Like for example, the women when they saw use of early cinema caboto know who they thought very highly of him, meaning they really,

00:34:23--> 00:35:00

you know, viewed his his beauty to be truly great. So, this is the meaning of Kibet greatness, and then the cardboard. Okay, the name moussaka bit is from the cupboard. The cardboard is to magnify oneself meaning to, to reveal or to show oneself as great. Now this could be in two ways. Okay. One, it could be that someone is truly great. Okay. And so they reveal their greatness and this is something that befits only Allah soprano Dada. So only

00:35:00--> 00:35:51

Allah is Allah Taka bit because he's truly great. And he has every right to, you know, to magnify himself and to reveal his greatness because he's truly great. The second type of the Kabbalah is to assume greatness to find greatness. Basically, when a person falsely believes that they are great or that they begin bragging about things that are not in them, right. So, so basically not real qualities but imaginary, but imaginary qualities. And this is what people do. So, for example, when a person thinks that I am better than so and so, right. This is called the caboose arrogance. So, for example, we learned about a police right that a police

00:35:52--> 00:36:41

Allah subhanaw taala said to him that Malika and that the Cabal, Rafi, it doesn't fit you, that you, you magnify yourself over here? And how is it that Emily's magnified himself or showed his greatness, when he said that I am better than Adam? So he thought in himself that he was better than Adam, why did he think that he was better than Adam, because he said that I am made from fire and Adam is made from clay, I was here before him, and I have been doing this and this and this good thing, right. And Adam just came, so I am better. Right? I am older, I am better, I have done more. So and my my source is better. My appearance is better, so I am better. Now. Does this behavior,

00:36:41--> 00:37:24

befit it creation? No. Because if you think about it, if you have any greatness, are you really the source of that greatness? No, you're not. If, if it's your age that you're very proud of if it's your skills that you're very proud of, if it's your name, or your you know, your knowledge or your money, or whatever it is that you're very proud of? Where did you get that from? Allah subhanaw taala is the one who gave it to you. In fact, you would not exist unless and until Allah subhanaw taala created you. So we don't have the right to think highly of ourselves. And the fact is that even if we think that we are great, is there someone who is greater than us, always, within the

00:37:24--> 00:38:02

creation, we will always find someone who is better and greater than us. So for example, if a person is, you know, walking really arrogantly that you know, I am so tall, well, guess what, the tree is taller than you. The building is taller than you. And there's that person who is taller than you. If you're really proud about your, you know, your physical appearance or the way that you have, you know, you have adorned yourself. While that may be very impressive, but guess what, there's someone else who, who perhaps looks much more beautiful than you. And there are people who did not even notice your beauty, but they noticed the beauty of others. Right, so, so, arrogance is something

00:38:02--> 00:38:16

that does not befit us, which is why the cup bowl for people means arrogance, but the cup bowl for Allah subhanaw taala means means superiority because he's truly superior and he's truly great.

00:38:17--> 00:38:40

So, so pride and arrogance doesn't defeat us but Allah subhanaw taala he is truly great. So al Kabir means the ever great and ultra Kabir the truly great or the the superior and last panel Tata is Alka bead and moussaka bit, meaning that he is the greatest and there is nothing greater than him.

00:38:41--> 00:38:50

He is the greatest and there is nothing at all that is greater than him, meaning everything is below him beneath him.

00:38:51--> 00:39:36

And this means that he is truly great in his being in his attributes in his names in his actions. So he's the greatest and he's greater than anyone. So everything and everyone is beneath and below him. So no matter what height and what status and what power someone attains a last panel, Todd is still greater. And then the last panel thought is Al Qaeda COVID What does that mean? It means that he is great above any limitation. He is great. He is above any evil any harm, any suffering or any wrongdoing. And then when the last panel tallies al Qaeda with the cabinet it also means that he is great. So he deals with the arrogant with his greatness and might meaning he brings them down he

00:39:36--> 00:39:59

lowers them because he does not like arrogance and people so when Allah subhanaw taala is Al Qaeda with a Kabir What does that mean? It means that first of all, we should be humble. Right? And we should not. Not ever think that worshipping Allah is you know is beneath us suffered Allah, we learned that rissalah is Salaam lanius thankful mercy. That is

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

Listen, I would never disdain worship, meaning he would never look down on on worship that, oh, it doesn't befit me that I should make such that it's embarrassing that I worship Allah. No, it is not embarrassing. This is a source of honor for us. And this kind of humility is something that we should exhibit and we must exhibit no matter where we are. This is why when it comes to Salah, it is something that we have to do no matter where we are. When when the time comes in. We have to pray even if you're sitting in an airplane, and you you know, you start praying and people start staring at you wondering what's wrong with you? You know what they can think whatever. But this is my time

00:40:40--> 00:41:24

to show humility before Allah subhanaw taala because humility is what befits me. So we should be humble. And if a person, you know refuses to obey Allah, that for example, a person finds out what Allah Subhana Allah has commanded, but still this unknown, there's no way I could do this. Absolutely not. This is a way of competing with Allah in greatness. Because this is a way of saying that you know what, I am greater, I am better, and I don't accept your greatness. So we learn in a Hadees that are lost. Pandora says that grandeur is my cloak and greatness is my robe. Whoever seeks to rival me in either I shall consign him to the fire, meaning of a person,

00:41:25--> 00:41:47

you know, tries to take a loss pounce on his greatness away by by competing by saying that I am great, I am better, I know better, or I will not obey, then this is a way of fighting with Allah subhanaw taala stuff it a lot. And if a person were to do that, how could they ever be successful?

00:41:49--> 00:42:31

Then when the last panel thought is on Kebede Elmo Taka bid, this means that we should not be deluded by the greatness of people. Right? That when we see that someone is great realize that our last panel Tanya is great her and then when most people thought is Al Qaeda with a COVID This means that we should glorify Him, we should not be singing our praises, that I am this and I am that and I have done this and I have done that. No, we should be singing the praises of Allah subhanaw taala right. We learned that no one will enter Paradise whose heart contains an atom's wait of arrogance. So we should ask Allah subhanaw taala to remove pride from our hearts. Now what are the ways in

00:42:31--> 00:42:36

which we can pray? You know, a MiG da to Allah subhanaw taala with these names,

00:42:37--> 00:43:16

we see that first of all, when the event is made, and Allah subhanaw taala has greatness as mentioned that Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, what should we do at that time, we should respond to the words of the other men by saying Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, that yes, Allah is truly great, Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest. And then also respond with action. Not that we hear the other and we hear that you comma and then we're just sitting, no, respond with action. Go and pray. Sure that really Allah subhanaw taala is greater, more important than whatever else that you were doing. Right? So you will leave what you're doing and go bring yourself down, you know, you humble

00:43:16--> 00:43:42

yourself, lower yourself, before Allah subhanaw taala. And then of course, when it comes to, you know, making Vicar of Allah, we have been taught the beautiful Vicar of St. Allah who Aqaba right so lb Allah Alhamdulillah Allah ilaha illa Allah and Allah who Acaba and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that saying these words, is more beautiful to me, than anything on which the sunrises of

00:43:43--> 00:44:24

any imagine anything of this world, anything of this world, no matter you know, how precious it is, how expensive it is how, you know, famous it is, whatever it may be. The Prophet sallallahu earlier said, I'm set that saying these words of the Quran is more beloved to me than anything on which the sun rises, which words Subhan Allah and hamdulillah La ilaha illa Allah and Allah Akbar. And then earlier we learned about Subhana vilja beyrouth Well, mallacoota al Kibriya Kibriya is from the same route Kibriya greatness. So Allah subhanaw taala is the is the possessor of all greatness. And this is something that we should say in our little cooler and soju

00:44:25--> 00:44:30

and the next is the names of Allah Al hakam and Al Hakim

00:44:32--> 00:44:58

and Hakeem and how come Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran in Naka Antal Arlene will Hakeem that indeed it is you meaning Allah, you are the one who is the knowing the wise and Hackney and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the law who will help him or Indeed Allah. He is a hacker, meaning the judge what he lay in Hong Kong and judgment is his.

00:44:59--> 00:45:00

So the name of

00:45:00--> 00:45:51

Hello and heckum appears in the Sunnah and the name of Allah Al Hakim appears many times in the Quran. In fact, we learned that it occurs 93 times in the Quran. And Allah How come occurs once in the Sunnah. And there is also the name how can how came appears six times in the Quran? Now what does this word mean? If you look at these names, how come Hakeem how came? We have the word hokum, right? How come is the main word? What does that mean? Basically, how karma, okay, how karma is to curb or restrain a horse. How that, for example, if you're sitting on a horse, and the bridle is in your hand and the horse is trying to, you know, move forward. So what do you do you, you curb the

00:45:51--> 00:46:41

horse, you restrain the horse by pulling the bridle, right, the by pulling the reins in order to stop the horse. So this is the meaning of the word, how come? Okay, and how karma, for example, is used for restraining a person from doing something. Okay. So for example, tying them up, or restraining them so that they cannot go away, they cannot escape, and there's sort of forced to do it. So this is why the word hokum is used for judgment that for example, when the law or you know what when a judge for example, gives an order then that's it, it's going to be carried out right if the judge says that you have to pay a certain amount of money as as a fine then that's it you have

00:46:41--> 00:46:47

to pay it if the judge says that so and so is going to go to jail, then they're going alright. So

00:46:48--> 00:46:50

how can we is to exercise

00:46:52--> 00:47:32

sorry, it is to exercise authority. Okay. Now from the same root is also the word hikma and hikma generally, is understood as wisdom. Why is it called wisdom because when a person is wise, then their wisdom prevents them restrains them from ignorant behavior. Right? Like, for example, a child does not always know what to say what not to say, does not always know like, for example, you go to someone's house and you know, your child, for example, starts crawling up the stairs. So you stop the child at No, we're not at home, you cannot go up the stairs. This is not a playground that is somebody's house, but the child doesn't get it every time you stop the child, the child will keep

00:47:32--> 00:48:23

going. Right. But if it's an older person, you expect them that they're not just going to randomly go around taking a tour of somebody's house, right? Because their wisdom, their intellect is going to restrain them from ignorant behavior. Right, but hikma wisdom, you see it, it also prevents a person from from showing bad behavior. Like for example, if a person gets angry than their wisdom will prevent them from lashing out. If a person is you know, hurt sad that their wisdom will prevent them from just sobbing uncontrollably before people in screaming and wailing and you know, beating themselves up etc. A wise person wisdom makes a person behave properly. Right. And this is why it is

00:48:23--> 00:49:16

said that hikma is to put something where it belongs, meaning to do something in the right way at the right time in the right place. And hikma is also about making decisions right making the right decisions. So hekla hokum same route. Now when Allah subhanaw taala is a Hakeem and l How come What does that mean? It means that first of all, the last panel tada is aloha Kim, meaning he is the sovereign judge, meaning he is the one who judges and how come meaning he is the judge, he decides and judgment is basically his meaning he has the power to decide whatever that he wants and his decision prevails. And all matters will ultimately return to Him for judgment, right when on the Day

00:49:16--> 00:49:23

of Judgment, when he will decide between his servants and He will give each servant what that servant deserves.

00:49:24--> 00:49:59

When Allah subhanaw taala is a Hakeem it means that his judgment is the best which is why we learn in the Quran woman sn amin Allah He hookman live call me up noon, the who could be better than Allah in judgment for a people who believe with certainty, right? So his judgment is free of any imperfection, any error, we see that when we make decisions, our decisions are not always perfect. So often it happens that we decide something and literally five minutes later, we say, Oh, that was a bad decision. That was a bad call. We say so

00:50:00--> 00:50:34

One thing and we regret it instantly, right? We do something and we regret it instantly. We, we buy something so panela and we bring it home and we're like, I'm bad decision. I don't know what I was thinking. Right? So, our decision our judgment is not perfect. It is not free of error. It has gaps in it. You know, sometimes people in an organization at the top they make certain decisions, and they completely forget about certain realities within their organization. They, there's gaps, right? There's imperfection.

00:50:35--> 00:50:51

We learned in the Quran, warm after left on theme and shaken for hawkmoon in Allah, that whatever matter you differ in amongst yourselves, then its judgment is with Allah meaning Take, take that final judgment from Allah, see what Allah subhanaw taala has decided regarding that matter.

00:50:52--> 00:51:41

And then when Allah subhanaw taala is a How come al Hakim and Hakeem also means they'll hikma right, it means the one whose judgment The one who makes judgment whose judgment prevailed, but it also means the one who is wise, meaning he is wise in his actions, in his words in his decrees. So he puts things where they belong, as per his judgment and His justice. So remember that the, for example, when a person is wise, it means that they're not doing things foolishly. Right? meaning they're not making mistakes. They're doing things very deliberately, right? What they're doing is not random. It is not haphazard. There is no accidents. When Allah subhanaw taala is an Hakeem it

00:51:41--> 00:52:23

means that his decrees are perfect. So everything that he decides, first of all, there is some wisdom. There's some reason behind that. When it comes to our creation. This is not useless. And when it comes to anything that happens in our lives bigger or smaller than remember again, there's a last panel thought is wisdom in that. So we learned in sort of manana lost parents Allah says Allah huseby tomb under mahalo canal como Roberson, wondercon Elena La Torre Jerome Did you think that we created you in vain uselessly just for play and that you're not going to return to us for Allah Allah who will medical help? Allah subhanaw taala is exalted about that. He is the true king, La

00:52:23--> 00:53:10

Ilaha Illa who are bull[???]ting Karim so. So, last panel, tada is the heckler meaning his decisions are with his wisdom. Whatever he decides, is not free of his is not void of wisdom. There is a reason purpose behind that. So when Allah subhanaw taala is a helcom. And Hakeem, what does that mean for us? What are we supposed to do? First of all, we should believe that Allah subhanaw taala is judgment is the best, whether it is His judgment regarding something religious, like a command that Allah has given. For example, He has commanded us that we pray five times a day, then this judgment is the best, you might feel that it's too much, but Allah Subhana thought his judgment is

00:53:10--> 00:53:56

the best and in order to realize how it is best, you first have to surrender and accept because realization comes only after acceptance. So accept Allah subhanaw taala has decisions whether they are religious, or they are in your personal life or they are in the world or with anything, you know, in the creation, okay, accept Allah subhanaw taala his judgments, his decisions, and believe that they are that they are the best, because the last panel thought his decisions are with his knowledge with his wisdom. So he says in the Quran, Allah is Allah who be Kamil, hacky mean, is Allah not the best of all judges? meaning is his judgment, not the best. Is his judgment, not

00:53:56--> 00:54:45

perfect? Absolutely. It is. No, this is why some of the stuff, one of the son of said, meaning, a righteous scholar of the past said that I would rather have Allah subhanaw taala judged for me than my own mother than my own parents. Why? Because I know that my parents especially my mother is very kind to me, loves me. But my mother is a human being. And she cannot be 100% just and fair. And whatever, that she decides for me, whatever that she wants for me, right in her love, she could actually harm me. And doesn't that happen at times? I remember Somebody once told me that, you know, when they had their baby, they were living in a different country. Nobody from their family was

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

around. And you know, she had her baby and she would literally hold her baby all the time. Meaning she would not let the baby have any, you know, tummy time what they call basically putting a baby on on his tummy. So that

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

You know, he has a balance in his head, etc, she would not make her child sit down, she will just carry him non stop all the time SubhanAllah. So in her love, she was doing that. But as a result of that extra love what was happening is that the child was not developing certain skills that that he should have already developed. So, the thing is that people with all of their love and all of their compassion, and all of their well wishing and all of their knowledge and all of their fears, they're imperfect, their decisions are imperfect. This is why, when it comes to the decisions that are lost part of what makes for us realize that they are the best and and remind yourself, I wouldn't have it

00:55:49--> 00:56:31

any other way. I wouldn't have it any other way. You see when you're looking ahead, okay, when you're looking ahead, meaning as you see things happening in your life, not everything makes sense, right? Certain things are very difficult. Other things are very painful. Other things, you're just shocked and surprised that what is going on and why is this happening? And how come you know what i did did not work? How come? You know this came my way. As you're looking ahead in front of yourself, things are not always going to make sense. But in hindsight, they will always make sense. And when you look back at your life, you will really say I wouldn't have it any other way. Allah subhanaw

00:56:31--> 00:57:15

taala his plan was perfect. But that can only be if you accept Allah subhanaw taala his decisions, you surrender before Allah subhana wa tada and you exhibit beautiful patient sovereign Jamil, and you say really to Robbie, oh my lord, I am pleased. And you you exhibit the core meaning the fear of Allah. So you do what Allah subhanaw taala wants you to do in that situation with Southern with taqwa with your son, as you move from one thing to another in your life, even though things are very painful. When you look back, you'll be like, I wouldn't have it any other way. This was perfect. Absolutely perfect. So Allah subhanaw taala his decisions, how are they? They are perfect. So what

00:57:15--> 00:57:20

does that mean? For us? It means that we accept his decisions and we're pleased with them.

00:57:22--> 00:58:04

And then we should also be patient, right when a loss pans out is Al Hakim, that means that we should be patient we learned the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah says first miru had kumala, who by now, one of the prophets of Allah cetera, is people that you should be patient until Allah subhanaw taala judges between us while we're Hyrule hackie mean and he is the best of all judges meaning his decision, his judgment is the best. So sometimes, you know, we are expecting something that you know I have, I have done whatever I was supposed to do. And now this is the result that I expect. But the results that come forward are not what you expected at all. You know, for example, someone is trying

00:58:04--> 00:58:50

to get married, they, you know, they try different things. They nothing works Subhanallah What does that mean? You don't question? Oh, Allah, how come? Okay, you don't you don't object that Oh, Allah. Why? No, you have to be patient until the decision is in your favor, and it will be in your favor, sooner or later. Because Allah subhanaw taala he is your Lord, He has given you so much without even you asking him, he cares for you more than you care about himself more than you care about yourself. He is unlike man whose Mercy is beyond your imagination. So then, what do you think he's going to decide something that's meant to destroy you? that's meant to cripple you know, whatever he decides

00:58:50--> 00:59:03

for you. As long as you're a believer, and you expect the best from him. Remember, the final outcome will always always be in your favor. So accept his decision and be be pleased with it.

00:59:04--> 00:59:36

And also remember that wisdom belongs to Allah because he is a Lackey. So when we want wisdom, we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for it, you will hate mathema Yasha woman you tell hikma for cod Oto Hi, Ron kathira that he gives wisdom to whomsoever He wills and whoever is given wisdom is given a lot of good. And also remember that his book is hacking, right it is it is full of wisdom it is perfect. And it is a source of firmness and strength. So hold on to his book.

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

Then we will look at so unhappy meaning the sovereign judgment also the otherwise. So we learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his in his tahajjud prayer meeting when he would get up in the night in order to pray in India is defeated. Basically after saying Allahu Akbar, in meaning when you begin the salon you say Allah hope or you put your hands on your

01:00:00--> 01:00:46

Just this is what he would recite a lot more about you briella when we can ILA what you saw feel filed last summer what he will all early, my baby was Shahada and como bainer Eva deca female Kanu fi telephone. Allah Homer they need to leave a female help. In Nikita demon, the Chateau de la Seraphim was talking, meaning Oh Allah, Lord of gibreel. maker, he is Salafi, Creator of the heavens and the earth, Knower of the unseen and the seen, you will judge between your slaves concerning that wearing the different meaning people have differences. And really, if you have differences with people, especially if you're having an argument, you know, sometimes certain arguments or certain

01:00:46--> 01:01:30

debates, they get prolonged, right? It could be with your family, as well. You say one thing, they say something else it could be with your co workers and then, you know, decisions are pending. So you're confused, you're unsure and and sometimes you're in a position where you have to make, you know, very critical decisions, and you're afraid to make those decisions because you recognize how, how incompetent you are, how imperfect your knowledge is, right? You You are afraid that what if I make a wrong decision? So ask Allah subhanaw taala al Hakim to help you. Right and use this there are antetokounmpo binary botica FEMA canovee of telephone, and then Allah guide me to the disputed

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

matters of truth, meaning where meaning where there is dispute among people, one person says this another person says the exact opposite. I don't know what to do, you guide me to the truth, for you are the one who guides to the straight path. So this was the name of Allah and Hakeem as well as his name a hacker. Now let's look at the name assumere.

01:01:52--> 01:02:39

We are in the quota Allah subhanaw taala mentions the DA of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, where he said a lot been at Taco Bell Mina both Ibrahim and ismar el when they built the Kaaba, they said our Lord accept this from us in Mecca and the semi or Darlene indeed you are the hearing the knowing they made their eyes and they said you are the hearing the knowing the name of Allah semir occurs 45 times in the Quran. And it means the ever hearing. Now ignore claim mentions that there are four meanings of the word summer. Okay, summer has four meanings. The first meaning is to perceive sound. Okay to perceive sound meaning when someone says something, you hear it. The second meaning is to

01:02:39--> 01:03:23

comprehend or to understand the meaning of what was said. So for example, if someone is speaking in a foreign language, while you can perceive the sounds, you have no idea about what they're saying. Right? So you don't know it. But some are is to know what has been said. To understand what has been said. Then thirdly, some are also means to accept or to pay regard to what was said because sometimes certain things are said in our presence, but we don't believe it. Right? We don't pay attention to it. We don't really care about it. And then finally, some are also means to respond or to answer. Okay? Like for example, if you ask someone to bring you water they don't bring it You

01:03:23--> 01:04:11

said Didn't you hear me? Alright? Are you going to listen to me? Right so listening also means that you respond you answer and this is why in Salah we say when we get up from record semirara Allah halimun hamidah that Allah has heard the one who has praised him meaning lost pounds, I will answer him. Okay. So these are four meanings of the word summer, okay, meaning different ways or different levels of listening. When Allah soprano tada is a Samir, what does that mean? Remember that first of all a Samir means not just Sam air one who hears but a Samir that ever hearing the one who's hearing is perfect. Okay, the one who hears all So, the first meaning of a Samir is that he is the one who

01:04:11--> 01:04:59

hears all meaning he hears all sounds, the audible right meaning what you can hear a meaning. For example, if a person talks in a way that their voice can be heard, and also the whispers because sometimes, you know, we whisper ever so softly ever so quietly, that even a person who is sitting you know six feet away from us is not able to hear, but Allah soprano thada hears all sounds, whether they are loud, or they are low, whether someone speaks openly or quietly, or even remain silent, because there are those things that we say with our mouths. But then there's also those things that we say in our heads, right? There's that inner conversation that's always happening.

01:05:00--> 01:05:48

So Allah subhanaw taala hears it all. You know, sometimes we're constantly judging ourselves, we say something like, Oh, that was so foolish we do something Oh, that was so wrong. Right? We constantly condemn ourselves, right? This is also heard by Allah. So Allah subhanaw taala hears all Psalms, whether they are la Hara or Bucklin or lufia, or Julia any every kind of sound. So we learn in the Quran, Allah parents, Allah says so our own main common a subtle little cola woman, Jehovah be, it is all the same among you, meaning it's the same before Allah subhanaw taala whether someone speaks quietly, privately or loudly, openly, meaning it doesn't matter how you say it, Allah subhanaw taala

01:05:48--> 01:06:33

has heard it. And really, if you think about it, people speak in so many different ways, so many different languages, so many different styles, right? different vocabulary, some people and at the same time. You know, if you go to a busy place, you can hear so much noise, what's that noise coming from people talking? And every single sound every single word is being heard by Allah subhanaw taala if two people are talking to you at the same time, right, you get so confused. You tell people that you know, one by one please one person at a time, because it's confusing. So many people are talking right and calling upon the last panel Tada. Almost Pandora hears every single one of them, their

01:06:33--> 01:07:23

voices do not get, you know, muddled up or or confusing for him. No, he and listening to one does not occupy him does not distract him from listening to another. You know, sometimes you talk to someone and after a few days when there is no response at cycle. It says if they never heard me, right you feel completely forgotten. But when you call upon Allah subhanaw taala when you say something Allah, Allah has heard you and he hasn't forgotten you. So Allah subhanaw taala is a semir, meaning he hears all. And secondly, Allah subhanaw taala is a Samir it means that he knows all. Because remember, some are also means to comprehend and to know. So no matter what way we speak

01:07:23--> 01:08:07

in, right, what language we use, what vocabulary we use, unless Python knows exactly what we have said. You know, sometimes we mean to say one thing, but people understand it completely differently because they don't, they don't understand our style. Right? Or they don't know our intention or perhaps they did not comprehend our words. So they misunderstand or they don't get it. They don't understand at all. But Allah subhanaw taala hears all and he knows all and then when a lot when Allah subhanaw taala is a Samir it means that he responds to his servants when they call upon him. We see that even when a person recite Surah Fatiha right you say al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen

01:08:07--> 01:08:54

Allah has heard that but you know what Allah answers he says, How many the name of the My servant has praised me. When you say in sutra, Fatiha, Idina Serato Mr. Pim, right, then Allah subhanaw taala has heard it, but he also responds to you. He says that williard deema says that my servant will have what he has asked for Allahu Akbar. Any Allah subhanaw taala hears, He knows he understands. And he responds. You see, sometimes you're trying to talk to someone, and you feel like they're not hearing you. Why? Because they're just looking at their phone. They keep saying, uh huh, uh huh. But they're actually not listening to you. So when you become silent, right, or when you

01:08:54--> 01:09:10

start saying random things, it's as if they didn't hear anything. Right? And then sometimes what happens is that you're talking to people they're looking at you. They're like, I'm sorry, I don't understand you. Right? Or you keep telling them that you don't get it. You don't you don't feel

01:09:11--> 01:09:12

understood.

01:09:13--> 01:09:56

Allah subhanaw taala not only hears us, he also understands us, he knows us. And then sometimes what happens is that we make our request clear to people people know exactly what we want. They understand our situation. But you know what they say I'm sorry, I cannot help you. Or I'm actually not going to help you. But Allah subhanaw taala a Samir, he also responds, this is why we learn in the Quran. That Ibrahima is seldom said in Nairobi less me or Dora. Indeed, my Lord, surely here's the drop in Surah. to recommend we learn Yes, allume and for some are what you will all call Naomi, who officia and every one in the skies and the earth calls upon him, asks him and every day he's

01:09:56--> 01:10:00

bringing about a new matter. Instead of Look man, we learned my hon cuckoo

01:10:00--> 01:10:42

Hola Baraka Camila, and I've seen where Haider in the last year and mostly your creation and your resurrection is not except like the creation and resurrection of one soul. Indeed Allah is hearing and seeing, meaning his his knowledge is perfect. Which is why when we look at the names of Allah sorry when we look at the name of Allah Samir, in the Quran, it is paired with the name Arlene, meaning very often it comes in the Quran, with the name Allah Eileen, for example, Allah who who has semi or leap, that Allah subhanaw taala he is truly the ever hearing the ever knowing. Why, because if you think about it, hearing without knowledge, in E is is not not perfection, right. And

01:10:42--> 01:10:46

knowledge without hearing is also incomplete. Because summer,

01:10:48--> 01:10:53

even though Samir can mean he knows all the difference is that knowledge

01:10:55--> 01:11:42

that he basically that he hears your call, right and he knows your condition, he has heard you, so he knows exactly what your condition is. And then we see that the name of Allah a Samir is also paired with elbow sleeve, that he hears and he sees which again indicates the perfection of his knowledge. And it is also paired with buddy idna who Samir on khateeb that indeed he he hears and he is near he's closer to you than you are to yourself, he's closer to you than your own juggler vein. So when the last panel thought is a semi or what does that mean? It means that first of all, we should affirm and believe in the fact that Allah subhana wa tada hears he listens. Now, we don't go

01:11:42--> 01:12:36

on saying that this is how he hears or that he hears he listens just like so and so, like the creation because that is not correct in the Quran, we learn laser committed cliche, there is nothing like him with a semi robust lead and he is the hearing the see. So remember a last panel Tatas hearing his summer is not like the summer of the creation, okay? His listening is perfect. Alright. So this means that we should always feel heard. You see, one of the worst feelings is that when you are talking when you are expressing yourself when you are trying to communicate your concerns that people don't acknowledge, so you feel unheard, you feel ignored. And this is a very painful feeling.

01:12:37--> 01:13:22

So when Allah subhanaw taala is a semir it means that we should feel heard, right, that Allah has heard me and sometimes really, we talk to people and we don't get any response. Right? Or their or their responses very, you know, blah, like it like that. Like they don't care at all. Or they you know, they they basically say, Yeah, I know, but I'm sorry. Right? I cannot help you. So basically, you spent that 45 minutes talking to them, but it really made no difference. But when you talk to Allah and Allah hears you, then you have been heard. And you know what, even if things are not to your liking, meaning they don't turn out to be exactly how you want them to be. You are still

01:13:22--> 01:14:06

rewarded for talking to Allah. So your effort of talking to Allah never goes waste at all ever. We don't know the beautiful Hadees remember the iron were less puntata says what semia Allah who cola Lottie to God Luca feasel. Jia last Pandora heard the statement of the woman who was arguing with you a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about her husband with a sticky to lunch she was complaining to a lower low yes Martha How would Akuma Allah was listening to your conversation? I shall do more on her said that. An hamdulillah any all praises to Allah, who's hearing encompasses all sounds? That lady came and she was talking to the Prophet sallallahu earlier said I'm in I was

01:14:06--> 01:14:51

in the same house just on one side, and I did not hear what that woman said. But Allah subhanaw taala heard her from above the seven heavens because Allah subhanaw taala here's all you know all of his servants. So always feel heard that you know what, when I have expressed myself I have been heard Allah has heard me. This is why our Kubernetes Sena, what did he say? In nama Eshkol Buffy were Hosni Illa he wasn't you know, making his grief be heard by people that you know what I'm talking about my grief so people you listen to me know he said in the mash Cuba fever Hosni Illa Allah Ibrahim on his son I'm he's described as a wound haleem right meaning he was very tender

01:14:51--> 01:14:59

hearted. And and you know, he he was very, very concerned and and he would always talk to Allah subhanaw taala and then when I lost pounds on his

01:15:00--> 01:15:45

Samir it means that we should be cautious of the fact that he hears us that while you know this really is very encouraging, but at the same time it should also make us very careful that what am I saying? And how am I saying it? We should be shy of Allah. We learn the Quran way integer herbal califa inuyama Silla alpha, that if you are allowed in speech that Allah Subhana Allah knows what is secret? And what is even more hidden. Meaning if you say something out loud, Allah knows about it, Allah heard it. But guess what, even if you say it softly Allah's parents are still hears it. And if you don't say it with your mouth, you don't verbalize it, you're talking in your heart. Allah has

01:15:45--> 01:16:18

heard that as well. He knows that as well. So even in a private setting, you know, sometimes when we're amongst our friends, or in our family members, you know, in our comfort zone, sometimes we start talking in a way that is inappropriate or talking about things that are inappropriate, or using words that are inappropriate. So almost Pandora says in the Quran, um, yes, abona and lenise Maru sera who want to do at home, do they think that we don't listen to their secrets, you know, their secret conversations, their private conversations, when they whisper to each other? No of us. puntata hears everything.

01:16:20--> 01:16:55

Then when the last part is a semir, it means that we should not fear what people say because sometimes the kinds of things that people say are very hurtful, very frightening. You know, they, they are very mean, or they say things which really bring us down. So don't, don't be affected by what people say. Of course, that effect is going to be they're absolutely going to be there because words do have an impact on us. There's no denying that. However, you can counter that feeling by reminding yourself that you know what Allah Pousada has heard them.

01:16:56--> 01:17:35

Allah subhanaw taala has heard them. So when most RNA Salaam was being sent to fit our own will Sardis and I was really scared. And the last month I told him, Allah let the hoffa don't fear in the new Mara Kuma, a smartwatch or I am with you, I hear and I see meaning anything that fit our own says to you, anything that he threatens you with, I can hear that, I know that I see it. And then we learned that you know, there were people at the time of the Prophet sallallahu where it is and who made fun of you know, some verses of the Quran. So last month, Allah said, look at Samir, Allah who coda Latina kalu, in Allah for patron of Nia, Allah prodata has heard them, right. So sometimes

01:17:35--> 01:17:41

people say very rude things, very wrong things. So don't Don't be afraid, because Allah Subhana Allah has heard it,

01:17:42--> 01:18:23

when the last parameter is a semi or it means that we should call upon Him, we should talk to him, not just about him. And you know what, continue to call upon him continue to talk to him because he is ever hearing. And he will respond, however that he wants. Like, for example, Yusuf Ali is Sam. He was, you know, in the house of Allah disease. And first there was one woman who was, you know, causing problems for him and now there were so many women, and everybody knew about his innocence, yet they weren't doing anything to help him. And we learned that use of artists and I made da and Allah subhanaw taala says first the Jabba hora boo for sort of foreign who Qaeda hone in the who who

01:18:23--> 01:18:34

was semi or Aleem that Allah subhanaw taala responded to him right because he is semi rural or idiom he is hearing he is knowing he he has heard you so keep talking to him keep calling upon him.

01:18:35--> 01:19:13

And then when the last part is similar, it means that when we make liquored when we, you know, make da when we recite the Quran, we don't have to yell, right? In fact, we don't even have to be very loud, just loud enough to make our ears listen. Okay? And sometimes, you know, you can, you can make liquid in a way that it's barely audible, there's no sound even coming out of your mouth. We learned in the Quran about the creality standard when he made it now the robber who needed coffee. Yeah, he called out to his Lord, but it was a very private dog. Right that no no other person heard it. And then we learned that once the companions were traveling with the Prophet sallallahu where it is and

01:19:13--> 01:19:56

I'm and every time that they would go up, you know, a dune, they would say Allahu Akbar outloud and as they would go down to to Subhana Allah outloud. So the Prophet sallallahu earlier sent him said that all people be gentle with yourselves because you're not calling upon the one who is deaf or absent? No, you're calling upon the one who is semir on buslee law, he hears you. So you don't have to be so pretentious and you know, exert so much effort. And then when I last thought is a Samir and means that we should be responsive, meaning if we want Allah subhanaw taala to respond to us, then let us also respond to Allah and also to people, because remember that the recompense of a deed is

01:19:56--> 01:19:59

always similar to the deed. So if you are receiving

01:20:00--> 01:20:38

farland one of the last protocols you then when you will call upon Allah, Allah will also respond to you. If you also respond to people not that not that people are constantly calling you calling in, you're like, Ah ha, ha, right? Like, for example, you're in your room and your mom calls you, right three times, four times. And finally, fifth time, you're like, yeah, I'm just like, Come downstairs, okay? And then another 10 minutes go by, and just like, Come downstairs like yeah, I'm coming and then another 30 minutes go by, and then then she, you know, comes upstairs, storming, you know, getting upset, be responsive, right? When you will respond to people, when you will respond to your

01:20:38--> 01:21:16

Lord, Allah Panthera will also respond to you. And then when the last point is a smear, it means that we should make him here. What does that mean? Meaning when you do something good, then your goal should be that Allah subhanaw taala. You know, he hears my recitation, he hears my you know, my good advice, right? Meaning be sincere, your goal should not be you know, to be heard by people, because the one who wants to be you know, spoken off by people, that Allah subhanaw taala will expose this person on the Day of Judgment, meaning the last part of our will revealed his real intentions, so we should be sincere.

01:21:17--> 01:21:59

And now when it comes to calling upon Allah subhanaw taala. With this name, we see of course, in the Quran, many names or many doras, where this name is mentioned. So for example, the daughter of Ibrahim and his Marine, where they settled binotto Cabell Mina in the calendar Samir and Arlene, we learned that the wife of Iran, she said, in Nina datalocker, Matthew botany more helgoland for the cowbell mini in the canter, Samir and Arlene, the criada, his Salaam said it will be heavily milodon because the Ria tanto e button in the casimiro da so when you're making garowe, than at the end of your dog, take this name, right that Oh Allah you are a semir so here my Dora, you are a Samir so

01:21:59--> 01:22:23

respond to my Dora, you know what I need, you are a Samir. And then in the morning in the evening, we learned the Prophet sallallahu. Earlier Selim taught us to say this Dora Bismillah he ladee layer lumos me he shot on film early, well, after summer he will who is Samir and Arlene, that In the name of Allah by whose name nothing in the earth or the heaven can harm and he is the all hearing all knowing well, who is semi rural, early,

01:22:24--> 01:23:11

then, inshallah very quickly, we'll do the next name also, which is the name of Allah subhanaw taala, Albacete and beside that ever seeing Allah tada says, laser committee ishay where he was cemetery bossley There is nothing like him. And he is the hearing, the seeing and the name of Allah Alba fleadh occurs 42 times in the Quran and the word bustle means to perceive something with vision, meaning to see it and it also means to know. So when Allah subhanaw taala is Albacete, it means that he is the ever seeing meaning he sees everything, both things that are apparent to us visible to us, and also things that are not visible to us, because we know that there are things

01:23:11--> 01:23:59

that exist, but we cannot see with our eyes, but just because we cannot see with our eyes, it doesn't mean that they don't exist, they do exist, right. So, Allah subhanaw taala, he is able to see even that which we are not able to see. And we are not able to see certain things either because they're too distant, or there's a barrier between us and those things, or they're too miniscule, right? Or, or they're too great for us to realize the full picture, right? Or they're such that our eyes are not able to perceive them. So whatever, whatever that exists, Allah subhanaw taala is able to see it. Allah subhanaw taala knows it. And Allah subhanaw taala is a global slayed, meaning there

01:23:59--> 01:24:43

is nothing subtle or obvious, you know, quick or slow, momentary or long lasting, except the last panel artist sees it. Because you see sometimes certain things happen before us occur before us. It's just a flesh. Right? It's just a flesh split second appears and it disappears. Right? You see something moving but by the time you look in that direction, it's gone. Allah subhanaw taala sight and then obviously it also means that he is all aware. Because elbow sleet also means Luba Sera, Bill Assia meaning he is he is fully aware of all things. We see that the name of a London bus lead is appeared in the Quran with the name of Samir, meaning he is hearing and seeing so he is perfect

01:24:43--> 01:25:00

in his knowledge in his awareness and it's also paired with a hobby, being the one who is perfectly aware. So if Allah is Albacete, what does that mean for us? It means that we should affirm and believe in his attribute of bustle, the fact that he sees and again without striking any company

01:25:00--> 01:25:39

Harrison's are describing how exactly you know of course, when the creation when we see things we see with our eyes, and we don't go on describing eyes for a loss Pandora No, we don't do that because we don't know. And it's really foolish to speak without knowledge. So when Allah says that he is Albacete, we believe in that, but we don't need to go on describing how right and Allah subhanaw taala his vision is not like the vision of the creation because we are not able to perceive everything. We're not able to see everything but Allah subhanaw taala sees everything we learn in the Quran Valley could be an Allah you lead your Laila from the heart, Allah pantocrator causes the

01:25:39--> 01:26:09

night to enter the day and the day to enter the night and he is the hearing the scene. When Allah subhanaw taala is Albacete, it means that we should be mindful, whatever we are doing wherever we are, Allah is watching us, right? We're not hidden from him. So Allah says in the Quran worker fabula Becca be the newbie everybody hubiera ombersley Ra, Allah, parent artist sufficient as hobbies and proceed for the sins of his servants meaning when the servants commit sins, almost pantalla has seen them

01:26:10--> 01:26:38

even when we do something very quickly and very, you know secretly, we have not really hidden ourselves from Allah. Because Allah says Allah Maha in Atul Aryan he knows the treachery of the eyes, meaning that split second that you take to quickly look at something and look away before people catch you. A loss panel Tata has seen you a loss parent knows exactly what you looked at with your eyes he saw you.

01:26:39--> 01:27:20

And then the way that we are behaving with people a loss Paragon is watching that also, we learn what your unknown Baba coonley Robin fitnah 10 at US Bureau cannot book a single, that we have made some of you a trial for others, meaning you will have conflict you will have problems. And guess what Allah is watching you. Meaning how you're behaving. And when a loss pans out his elbow sleeve, this means that we should be, we should remember this fact that Allah is watching me. And while you know this makes us afraid and shy. It should also encourage us to be more excellent in the way that we worship Allah, right, to make our worship even more beautiful, to be even more righteous servants

01:27:20--> 01:28:03

of Allah. And this is what your son is right? That you worship Allah as though you can see him and even if you cannot bring that feeling, then you remember that he is looking at you He is watching you, right. So this is what brings about your son. And then when Allah is Albacete, it means that we should rely upon him that when something has happened, he has seen it right? When something is happening, he is looking, he is watching out, even if you can't see, right you cannot see the germs on your hands, you cannot see what's happening inside of your body. Right? You go to the doctor, right? The doctor takes a look but the doctor misses the most obvious things. Allah subhanaw taala

01:28:03--> 01:28:52

has seen it right. He sees what you miss. He sees all states all circumstances. Right? And Allah subhanaw taala when he has such perfect Vasa than when we put in when we realize this, we're able to put our trust in him that he Allah, I cannot see but you can see. I don't know but you know, and this is why we should trust his decisions. Allah says in the Quran in Arabic I am so the risk premia were coated in no canonbury body heavy rhombus leader, that Indeed Allah expands provision for his servants, right? whomever that he wants, and he also restricts it, he is fully aware and seeing of his servants meaning he he sees his servants he knows them. So we should trust his decisions because

01:28:52--> 01:29:06

he knows what is best for us. And this is riddle, right? That last panel, tada is, you know, he knows me. He has been watching me, he knows how I was and how I am what I am doing so he knows what is best for me.

01:29:07--> 01:29:50

And then, when the last panel thought is elbasy, then realize that if he has seen it, meaning what you're doing, and that is enough, even if people don't see your good work, even if people don't acknowledge it, because sometimes really, you work so hard, you put in so much effort, and people don't even realize they don't even acknowledge it. They don't they don't even thank you for it. So make him see. Right do do do what you do for his sake. So when you know that Allah is watching you then this brings about feelings of sense of sincerity also. This is why we're told with our color Allah Allah Aziza Rahim, alleria Raka Hina tekun that rely upon Allah as his or her hand, the one

01:29:50--> 01:29:59

who sees you, when you stand meaning when you stand to pray, Allah is watching you, when you stand up, to obey Him to do something good when you rise up on

01:30:00--> 01:30:10

panel thought is watching you. And then when the last panel tala is Albacete, it means that we should do good, so that he will look at us with his approval on the Day of Judgment.

01:30:12--> 01:30:53

You see, there are some people whom our last panel will not even look at on the Day of Judgment. Even though most Pantheon is Albacete, meaning he knows exactly what they're doing, but he will not honor them. He will not dignify them by casting his glands on them, right by by letting them feel that they have been seen in their predicament, Allahu Akbar. So we don't want to be of those people. When a young guru era him whom Allah subhanaw taala will not look at. So we want to be those people who my last point that I will look at with his approval. Alright, that Allah subhanaw taala will be pleased with with us, this is what we want. We don't want to be screened away from Allah. We want to

01:30:53--> 01:31:35

be in the presence of God as we learn that color in the home or lobby him yoma a dilemma, a boon that some people will be screened away from Allah subhanaw taala So how should we call upon Allah subhanaw taala with this name, first of all, let us include this name in our door when you're going through some difficulty and you're making the wrong you're pouring your heart out before Allah say Yo Allah. You are You are elbow sleeve, you you see me you you see my condition. You see what I am doing you see that I have done whatever that I could you see that I am trying You see that? I am trying to be patient I'm trying to be strong. Right so a firm this musala his center he was scared

01:31:35--> 01:32:22

of facing fear our own and he made this long girl right? Call arbitrary surgery where silly Emory where he will rock the melissani of Coco Lee with Dr. Lee was zero min le Haruna he should be Azeri where Shri Kofi Omri canosa be Hakka kathira wanna kanakapura in Contra Bina basura you are ever seeing of us. You are watching me, you you you can see my effort. You can see my work, you can see my fear. Right? So when you're making the I'll include this name, in your draw, that you're Allah, you are Albacete. May Allah subhanaw taala give us the recognition of his names, the real understanding the real realization so that we don't just, you know, understand their meaning in the

01:32:22--> 01:32:44

in the academic sense, but then but that we also internalize these meetings and we remember them throughout our lives, through our struggles and through our difficulties. Bismillah inshallah will conclude over here, subclinical lahoma will be handed a shadow Allah ilaha illa Anta a Sofitel kawakubo la casa Mora aleikum wa rahmatullah II warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
