Salam or aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:01:37--> 00:01:57

Are the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Rasool E. Karim rubbish rocklea sadri were silly emri wash Lula rock the Tamil is melissani yufka who Koli Allahumma and the Colby was sadly Sani was also him at the Colby amin Yoruba alameen.

00:01:59--> 00:02:05

inshallah, today we will begin with the name of Allah, Allah zyk and of Lezak

00:02:06--> 00:03:03

the names of Allah subhanaw taala, Allah zip and Allah zoek Allah subhana wa tada is the provider, the ultimate provider, we see that the name Allah zyk is not directly mentioned any it is mentioned in the Quran that he is a last panel tada is hydel recipient the best of those who provide but the name or result is mentioned once in the Quran where Allah subhanaw taala says that in Allah who were was xapo, the 18 that indeed it is Allah who is the continual provider, the firm possessor of strength. So Allah Zack is the one who continuously provides His servants. We see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said that in Allah who will masaharu uncopyable, basketball, Arras,

00:03:03--> 00:03:56

basketball rasik but Allah subhanaw taala is Elmo Zarya acaba, Albacete and he is also a rasik meaning the one who provides now when we look at these names that are last panel, Tata is the provider, he's the giver of risk, what does that mean? What exactly is risk, what exactly is provision. So, remember that, it is is basically something by which a person benefits, it is something by which a person, you know, a creature profits or gains some kind of benefit. So, and it is also said that risk is actually you know, a good share of something like it has meaning a good share of something. So, and also risk is something that the creatures continuously receive,

00:03:58--> 00:04:51

by by a result of which, you know, they they grow and they are able to support themselves. So, when Allah subhanaw taala is a result arises, it means that all sustenance and all provision comes from him or zoologia all different types of provision also come from him be exalted. Now, when we think about provision, we should not just think about material things or you know, worldly benefits, remember that risk is actually of two kinds, the provision that Allah subhanaw taala gives is off two kinds, what are they the first kind is it is which is apparent which is lohit why because it is tangible, it is visible to us, it is material and this is risk for the body, for example, good food,

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

you know, good clothing, your money, the house that you live in, etc. You know, these are tangible, apparent

00:05:00--> 00:05:51

visible, very manifest blessings. And then we have risk which is unapparent it is which is intangible, meaning it is not, you know that visible, why because it doesn't have a physical form, but it is certainly something by which a person benefits. Like for example, the love that you receive from certain individuals, the support, the the friendship that you that you have with people, even knowledge is a form of risk in a man, the ability to do righteous things, the ability to accomplish, you know, certain goals. All of these are actually different forms of that is, so, when you think about provision that Allah subhanaw taala gives his servants don't just think about,

00:05:51--> 00:06:39

you know, the tangible things like for example, you know, your computer, or for example, your good health, or, you know, life and your body, etc. That is, includes the hidden things as well, that intangible things as well, things that are not that manifest. So, for example, in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala says, you know, he mentions the different blessings that he has bestowed upon His servants, both which are, you know, visible, and also those which are, you know, invisible. Allah subhanaw taala tells us that what intero do near mattala he left her saw her if you were to count, and enumerate the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given you, you would never be able to do

00:06:39--> 00:07:34

that. So Allah subhanaw taala is Allah zeuch meaning the one who provides an a result Allah Zack has hyperbole in it. So unreserved is one who continuously provides and the one who, who has created and bestowed a great number of provisions. So a reserve is the one who provides every single creature and he has allotted for every creature its risk. So he has decreed for every creature what it is going to receive. So remember that when a loss for Panasonic is of LASIK Allah Zack, first of all, that means that a loss Panasonic is the creator of all Auto zoek meaning all forms of sustenance. And now just consider the varieties and the great quantities of all that Allah subhanaw taala has

00:07:34--> 00:08:25

created a sustenance for his creatures. So panela any when you're eating a salad, even just think about you know the different types of vegetables and fruits that you put in your salad, sometimes you know the nuts and the seeds and then think about the dressing, and then the seasoning, so panela any in one meal, so many different forms and types of risk, and then consider the quantity and then you don't just get one meal or one salad bowl per life. Subhan Allah Allah subhanaw taala is Allah Zack, meaning he gives continuously over and over again. And he doesn't just provide one creature, but he provides all creatures. So we learn in the Quran, woman dab button fill early Illa Allah

00:08:25--> 00:09:16

Allah here is koha there is no creature on earth, no living moving creature on earth, except that it is upon Allah subhanaw taala meaning it is his end, it is a responsibility that Allah has taken upon himself to provide each creature. So there is no creature that receives provision except that Allah subhanaw taala has given it that provision. And then remember that when Allah subhanaw taala is Allah Zack, this also means that he has decreed for each creature its provision, Allah tada says, and so, to that yet, that will be summer it is skookum Womack, who are doing that in the sky is your provision and that which you have been promised, and what that means is that your provision your

00:09:16--> 00:09:59

sustenance comes from up above. And this can mean that you know, you know for example, when rain falls when Allah subhanaw taala sends rain, then that is what causes you know, your food to grow. And this can also mean that what you get on earth comes from up above, meaning its its decree comes from up above from Allah subhanaw taala you cannot receive anything unless Allah subhanaw taala gives it to you in a Hadees we learn that Allah has divided between you your character, just as he had divided or distributed among you your provisions. So come out awesome webinar calm or ozarka calm that he has divided or distributed amongst you.

00:10:00--> 00:10:20

Your provisions. Now, one of those final tada is a LASIK or Lezak any this only shows us how vast his treasures are and how perfect his ability is and how generous he be exalted is any if if you have you know for example,

00:10:21--> 00:11:08

you know guests to host right in your in your own house and you think about Okay, how much food you have to prepare for them, how much food you have to purchase for them. And then you know their stay is long, you know, you start thinking about how am I going to afford this or this is becoming too expensive, any we become stingy with ourselves, we become stingy with our children, we become stingy with our dependence we become stingy with you know our guests at times with our friends at times, because we are in need of sustenance. Allah subhanaw taala is a high yield to you, he is a honey and he does not need any sustenance. So He is the creator of sustenance, and the giver of sustenance to

00:11:08--> 00:11:59

all of his creatures. In a Hadees we learned that our last panel tada says, that all my servants, if the first of you and the last of you, and the men among you, and the gin among you, meaning all of the creatures, if all of you were to stand in one place, and were to ask me and I were to give every individual what he has asked for that would not reduce What is with me of my treasures, except except what a needle reduces in in the ocean, when it is dipped into it and taken out. Meaning how much water can a needle extract from the ocean? Hardly anything it makes no difference. And just like that, if Allah subhanaw taala were to fulfill the desires of every single creature that would

00:11:59--> 00:12:51

not diminish his treasures. Because Allah subhanaw taala is a Razak Allah Zack in his treasures are unlimited. His has that in his treasures are are endless when iarla Mooji knew the ROB Baker Illa who now knows the troops of of your Lord except he be exalted meaning only he knows how much he owns. We have no idea. Then we see that when Allah subhanaw taala any if he is Allah Zack this this shows us that He gives to all so we learn in the Quran in sort of the Shura. Ayah 19. Allah says Allah who love play from bury body, young Zuko, Maja Shah, that Allah is kind towards his slaves, and he provides whomsoever that he wills, any, this means that last panel Tata provides with his

00:12:51--> 00:13:41

wisdom and all power is with him. So all the risk is with him. So whether it is tangible sustenance or intangible sustenance, its source and its giver and its controller is who Allah exalted, and Allah subhanaw taala gives risk to his servants to his slaves, even though his slaves disobey Him and, and and sin and save the most you know, atrocious things about him. In our head, these we learn that there is no one more patient than Allah subhanaw taala over, you know, some annoyance, or, or or wrong things that he hears, you know, for example, if someone were to say wrong things about you, you would become impatient and in that impatience, you will become angry and you will become

00:13:41--> 00:14:33

vengeful, or you would try to withhold, you know, a favor that that you are giving. But Allah subhanaw taala is extremely patient. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Yeah, the rune Allahu wellard that they say that Allah has a child, so my Yoffie him where Zuko home, yet he gives them well being and he provides them in he provides sustenance to his creatures, even though his creatures disobey him and say the most wrong things about him. And when Allah subhanaw taala is Allah Zeke Allah Zack This means that and when he gives with his wisdom, he knows what to give to who and when. So we learn in total israa Ross panatela says in Europe, burqa Yep, super risk, Halima

00:14:33--> 00:14:59

Yasha, way up there in the whole Canterbury body, her Bill ombersley era that indeed your Lord is the one who extends provision for whom He wills and he constricts it meaning he is the one who gives employee and at times to some people, he he restricts that provision. And if you see this in your life also there is fluctuation. There were times when you had a lot and there were times when

00:15:00--> 00:15:49

You had very little any, he changes the the condition of his servants, right and then there are some to whom Allah subhanaw taala gives a lot to and then there are others to whom he gives very little to this is not random distribution. This is not a random decision, unless Pousada says in the whole Canterbury body Kabir ombersley era, that indeed he is ever of his slaves, aware and seeing, meaning he is fully aware of his servants so he knows what to give to who how much at what time and he and he observes His servants, meaning what they do with what they receive is also known to Allah subhanaw taala. So Allah subhanaw taala is a rosic and Allah Zack, when we see the name, Allah zap

00:15:49--> 00:16:21

in the Quran inserted that yet we see that it is mentioned with Zuko wattle Mati that Allah subhanaw taala is the is the liberal or the continuous provider, who is Luca, who is the firm, possessor of of strength, the Kuwaiti Mateen ne, Allah subhanaw. taala is the provider. And he's also very powerful, because it is only the one who is extremely powerful,

00:16:22--> 00:17:09

who can provide others who can give sustenance to others. You see, when someone depends on you, then this is something that, that that, you know, requires from you that you exert yourself. And that, you know, over time, drains you and exhausts you. You know, for example, if you have to look after a baby, this is something that is physically very demanding, emotionally very demanding. And if you think about how, you know if you know, for example, a premature baby Subhanallah if you've ever seen a pre premature baby and he in the hospital hooked up to so many things, you know, there's the oxygen and the there's the food and there's so many things attached to the tiny body. Why, just to

00:17:09--> 00:18:06

keep that body alive. Subhana Allah just to you know, help that body grow. Imagine how much Allah gives to his servants, providing sustenance is not easy. Fulfilling the needs of your dependents is not easy. This is something that exhausts us, but it is only Allah subhanaw taala who is the converted Mateen who is a Lezak? Who is the continual provider, the provider of all of his servants. So when Allah is Allah Zack rasik what is it that we should do? What is our duty? How is it that we should be with Allah exalted? First of all, we should remember we should believe that sustenance comes from Allah and only Allah, meaning all sustenance is in his control his hand his power, it is

00:18:06--> 00:18:55

he who gives it is he who withholds in sort of falsehood Ayah three, Allah subhanaw taala says, Yeah yohannes of Guru near Matala here la comme Hellman highly acclaimed ladle, la he or Zuko convenor summer he will argue that all mankind remember the blessing of Allah upon you, is there any creator other than Allah, who provides you from the sky and the earth? Meaning Is there anyone else who provides you who provides you it is the one who created you and He gives you a provision from above and from below. He He is the one who gives you what you have what you need, in sort of Subbu i a 24 Allah says cool Mayor Zuko communists summer what he will ask the people that who is it that

00:18:55--> 00:19:13

provides you some sustenance from the skies and from the earth kulula tell them it is Allah, meaning it is only Allah who gives you provision, instead of the Nile is 73 Allah says, We are bounnam in Dune Illa Himalayan liquid la hombres communism I work you will appreciate

00:19:14--> 00:19:59

that they worship besides Allah, that which does not have the power to give them anything from the skies or the earth. Why because all this is with Allah. It is he who gives in certain mulk ayah 21 a man have a lady or Zuko come in, um, soccer is who is it that could provide you If Allah subhanaw taala withholds His provision his sustenance, meaning if Allah decides to not give you who could bring you provision who could bring you sustenance, so we should believe that Allah is the provider, all sustenance comes from him, and he is the one who controls it. So no one can give you sustenance, if Allah subhanaw taala decides to withhold

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

But secondly, when Allah subhanaw taala is ilasik This means that we should trust Him, we should believe him, that, you know, if he has decided to give me something, then Alhamdulillah. And if he has decided to not give me something, then again Alhamdulillah. And if I want something, then it is only Allah who can give. So yes, I do my part, to get what I need, because that is something that I'm most proud of Tata has required of me that I should use the means the abilities that Allah has given me to earn to get sustenance, but then my reliance my dependence should only be on Allah subhanaw taala, not on my strength, not on my ability, not on, you know, my education, or my job or

00:20:51--> 00:21:02

my business, because all of these are only means they're only, you know, avenues through which Allah subhanaw taala gives us, they're not the source of our provision.

00:21:03--> 00:21:52

So, in a Hadees, we learn that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if you were to trust, you know, place your trust in Allah, the way that you should place your trust in Him, then you will provide you as he provides the birds, that the birds, they go in the morning, you know, they wake up in the morning with empty stomachs. But then by the end of the day, they have full bellies. And this is amazing how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, mentioned the birds, because birds travel, you know, so far and wide, they migrate, they fly over, you know, so is such vast areas, and these birds, heinola, tiny bodies, tiny bodies, and how is it that they find

00:21:52--> 00:22:42

their food? You know, it's amazing, sometimes you see a bird just, you know, sitting on a fence. And you wonder what is this bird doing here, and how that tiny bird with those tiny eyes is able to see a bug, you know, or a grub somewhere on the ground. And it just comes in, swiftly takes it away. Amazing. So who is it that provides all creatures, it is the last panel Tada. So put your trust in Him, when you see how an ant finds a crumb that you dropped, and it comes and finds its provision, when a bee, you know, goes from from one flower to another to another, visiting hundreds of flowers in a day, collecting nectar from so many places, then, if Allah provides all of these creatures, he

00:22:42--> 00:23:36

can surely provide you an eye, he can surely give me what I am in need of. So put your trust in Him. Our problem is that we begin to put our trust in ourselves and on the people that we see. So we begin to expect from people and when they don't give us we get disappointed, we get angry. And when we depend on ourselves, we become really proud. And then what happens is that we we, we fall into despair. So our, our effort, of course needs to be where it needs to be birds don't just stay in their nests, right, they fly, they go around, they go to so many different places to to to seek their provision. So the provision is their sustenance is there, we have to put in our effort and we

00:23:36--> 00:24:28

have to put our trust in Allah, that Allah subhanaw taala will give me what I need, that he will make me reach the place the people, the sources, where my needs will be fulfilled in sha Allah, so put your trust in Allah and expect the best from him. Thirdly, when Allah subhanaw taala is a rasik of azog This means that we should we should you know rely upon him for sustenance. And this means that we should be on you know, the, we should befriend the the provider, any you cannot get provision by upsetting the one who gives provision. So we learn in the Quran that Allah subhanaw taala says and sort of Pollock I or two and three that were may yet the pillar yadgir Allah who

00:24:28--> 00:24:59

Maharajah were Zukerman, Hayes, who later sip will make ethical or the life our hospital, that whoever fears Allah that Allah subhanaw taala will create an exit for him an exit from where from, you know his trouble. And Allah will provide him from where he cannot even imagine. So if you want sustenance, then you have to, you know, seek it from Allah. And and don't try to seek it by displeasing Allah by doing

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

wrong things. So seek risk correctly, seek provision in the right way. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a yohannes it the Halawa a Jamila Taleb meaning all people fear Allah and adopt beautiful ways the correct ways in seeking sustenance. Why because what is written for you will certainly reach you, your test is in is in what you do in order to seek the provision that Allah subhanaw taala has decreed for you. So, what the cola what Emmylou, fifth column, us beautiful ways, correct ways in order to seek sustenance, and when Allah is Allah, Allah zyk

00:25:49--> 00:26:38

sorry, Allah, Allah Zack, this means that we should ask him for sustenance, what is zoku now we're under higher Razia pain, that Oh Allah you provide us and you are the best of those who who provide. Now what are the ways through which we can seek sustenance from Allah subhanaw taala in in different, you know, a hadith and verses of the Quran, we learn about beautiful ways through which we can seek sustenance from Allah, any one obvious way of seeking sustenance is that we, you know, do what is within our capacity. Like for example, you want money, you go find a job, right? You work so that you get paid, right? This is very obvious, but remember that Allah subhanaw taala has given

00:26:38--> 00:27:31

us tangible ways, and also in tangible ways, tangible ways to to seek provision. You know, for example, you drive to the store, buy food, and you can eat it. But then it's not just, you know, tangible ways. There's also intangible ways in material ways through which we can seek sustenance from Allah subhanaw taala. And what are those ways I'm going to mention 12 The first is, is still far and Toba. seeking forgiveness and repenting to Allah the Exalted from since why because in the Quran we learn in sort of knew that no Halle Salaam said to his people, for Paul to sell for over a buck come in who can have a firewall that knew how they said, I'm sad that I said to my people, that

00:27:31--> 00:28:12

seek forgiveness from your Lord, indeed, he is the Perpetual Forgiver and when you will seek forgiveness from him, what's going to happen, you will sell his summer rla considerada He will send the sky meaning the rain upon you, generously meaning there will be abundant rain on you, William did to come be unwell in Weber need and he will reinforce you with wealth and with children meaning he will give you money and he will also give you children where you're unlocking, generating and he will make for you gardens because you can have land but if nothing grows on it, and he What good is it? So he will he will make for you gardens where you're unlucky and harder and he will make for you

00:28:12--> 00:29:00

rivers. So it's the fall and tober are a way of seeking sustenance from Allah. Now think about it. You may have you know, certain desire certain wishes that you know, I want this degree or I want to be able to memorize the Quran, I want to be able to you know understand this particular concept, you know, I want knowledge of this matter I want to write you know a book, whatever goal you have, whatever it is that you want for yourself, whether it is something material or immaterial, because remember we discussed earlier that risk is not just tangible, it is also intangible, so any form of sustenance that you want, you have these wishes, right you're making draw, but along with Dada and

00:29:00--> 00:29:29

along with your effort, you also need to seek forgiveness from Allah. You also need to make Toba that Oh Allah, I seek forgiveness from you. Yeah, Allah, you forgive me. I admit my sins, I admit my mistakes. I repent to you from all of my sins. Your Allah forgive me. When you increase in is the thought. Then the doors of risk. also open up for you. Allah subhanaw taala gives you generously.

00:29:30--> 00:30:00

Secondly, use the early morning. Why because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam may draw for his oma, that Allahumma barik lumity feeble kureha that Allah bless my oma in its mornings in its early mornings. Meaning when you will do something in the early morning, then you will have blessing in it. And imagine if you are trying to study something at that time, or you're trying to write something

00:30:00--> 00:30:45

thing at that time, or you, you know work on your business, it cetera, you work in the morning Allah subhanaw taala will bless you in your sustenance, you seek sustenance at that time, through your effort through your work, Allah subhanaw taala will bless you in it. And you will notice how birds even when is it that they go finding food for themselves? They go in the morning at fudger time, what is it that you hear? It's the chirping of the birds. In the early morning, you see birds flying here to their, you know, searching for food, and what is it that we are doing, we are usually just sleeping or lazing around or still getting ready or still in our phones, not really starting our

00:30:45--> 00:30:59

work. So use the morning, even if it's just an hour or two. But what you can gain in the morning, you cannot get in the afternoon, you cannot get in the evening. So use the early morning. Thirdly,

00:31:00--> 00:31:44

the core of Allah, meaning in your life, observe more and more consciousness of Allah be more aware and mindful of Allah subhanaw taala that what I'm saying what I'm doing, what I'm listening to, what I'm looking at, is known to Allah does the last panel Tyler approve of it? If he doesn't, I should, I should, you know, leave this, I shouldn't be saying this. I shouldn't be watching this, I should not be looking at this I should not be here. I should not be doing this. So when you leave something out of the fear of Allah, when you do something out of the fear of Allah, then Allah subhanaw taala says, and I mentioned this earlier, when my yet the pillar her yadgir Allahu Maharaja, were Zukerman

00:31:44--> 00:31:56

Hayes, who later said that whoever fears Allah, then Allah subhanaw taala creates an exit for him from his trouble, and he provides him sustenance from where he cannot even imagine.

00:31:57--> 00:32:49

Fourthly, when it comes to seeking provision, then another key of seeking provision is number four, avoid sin, leave sin, any there there are certain, you know, bad habits that we develop over time. And these are habits that we need to leave and sin Yes, it is, you know, difficult to avoid at times. But then when you when you when you, when you try when you put in the effort to, you know, stay away from sin, that Allah subhanaw taala also strengthens you. In these we learn that a servant is deprived of provision because of his sin. Kenny, the servant is your normal, he is deprived of provision because of a sin that he is committing. So in order to see provision from Allah subhanaw

00:32:49--> 00:33:37

taala, one of the means that we can adopt is that we avoid sin, we leave sin number five, to work cool, Allah Allah, and he put your trust in Allah, Don't be impatient, don't get upset that you know what I've been trying for so long. You know, to earn my degree, I've been working so hard on my business, you know, I I'm, I'm doing my best to, you know, do my job properly. You know, I'm fine. I'm searching for for, you know, work. I've applied at so many different places. You know, when it comes to marriage, even people think, you know, that I've been trying for so many years, but Allah subhanaw taala is not giving me right. So this despair is not correct, no, put your trust in Allah,

00:33:37--> 00:34:29

that you know what Allah gives to his creatures, he is the source of provision, he has given to so many people he gives every single day, every single moment, he can also give me and He will give me and if he is not giving me right now, then there is there's a reason behind that. So put your trust in Allah because we're mainly at the worker or the law he for whoever has Sue whoever puts his trust in Allah that Allah is sufficient for him. Number six, increase in your worship and worship Allah subhana wa tada properly to the best of your ability in the most excellent way. You know sometimes we're we're you know, we're too focused on what we're not getting. And we don't pay enough attention

00:34:29--> 00:34:59

to what we are supposed to be doing. When it comes to our Salah, any we're distracted or Salah is delayed. Sometimes it's you know, not not prayed at all stuff it Allah, any these kind of habits we need to fix when it comes to the to the recitation of the Quran again we are negligent. When it comes to the vicar of Allah again we are negligent. So improve your worship and Allah subhanaw taala will take care of your

00:35:00--> 00:35:49

Risk he will give you what you are in need of. in Hades we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah the Exalted, said that all son of Adam, the father O'Leary by the T m lo caulobacter leenane, that all son of Adam, make time for my worship. And I will fill your heart with contentment will assert to four o'clock and I will remove your poverty. A lot of you, you make time to worship Allah subhanaw taala you make a bother a priority and what's going to happen, Allah will remove your poverty, he will take care of your affairs. Number seven, make Hajj and Umrah now a person might say well, Hajj and Umrah is very expensive. You know, if if you think about it, you

00:35:49--> 00:36:39

have to save money for some time in order to, you know, go for Hajj in order to go for O'Meara. And if you spend all of that on hygiene aroma than then you're kind of losing provision, you're not really gaining provision, but it actually works the other way around. When you go for Hajj and Umrah consecutively, then you actually increase in your provision. In a head these returned the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that perform hajj and aroma consecutively because they remove poverty and sins just as the bellows remove impurity from iron. Meaning when you put iron in in a furnace, then that is how it is purified. And just like that, when you go for Hajj and aroma consecutively, then

00:36:39--> 00:37:29

your poverty and your sins are removed from you. They're taken away from you. So if you want to have more provision, then think about make the intention of going for Hajj going for Umrah consecutively repeatedly. You know, it's amazing whenever we have a little bit of money, we think about where we can travel to next. And what when it comes to travel, Hajj and Umrah should be our priority. Number nine spend on seekers of knowledge. When you spend on people who are seeking sacred knowledge, religious knowledge, then because of that, perhaps you will also be given risk by Allah subhana wa tada we learn of a hadith in which we see that there were two brothers at the time of the Prophet

00:37:29--> 00:38:12

sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And one of the brothers he would, you know, spend a lot of time with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in order to you know, learn from him, it cetera, and the other, the other brother would, you know, go and make money. So the brother who would go and make money he wants to complain to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that, you know, my brother is you know, always here, you know, he's busy learning and, you know, doing good things, please tell him that he should also you know, help me and he should also earn money. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Larnaca to Rosa could be that perhaps you are given sustenance, because of your

00:38:12--> 00:39:12

brother, meaning perhaps you are given provision, because of the fact that your brother is is learning the religious knowledge. So when you spend on people who are seeking knowledge, then because of that, you also increase in your sustenance, Allah subhanaw taala gives you sustenance. So spend on secrets of knowledge number 10, similar to Rahim, meaning, meaning, joining ties with relatives, and being good to your relatives. This is also something that, that that brings provision to a person. And I had these we learned that whoever wants whoever likes whoever is pleased with the idea that His provision is expanded for him. And his life term is also expanded for him, then he

00:39:12--> 00:39:59

should find yourself rahima, who then he should join ties of kinship. And being good to relatives includes spending on relatives, it includes, you know, being on good terms with them. It includes being good to them when they are, you know, back to you. When they treat you harshly you You're still generous with them, you still keep in touch with them. So this is something that brings provision from Allah subhanaw taala number 11. Honor the weak among you. When it comes to people who have, you know, for example, a disability or a health issue, or for example, they're not people of status, and people have knowledge and people have money, you know,

00:40:00--> 00:40:51

weakness can be because of different reasons. So there are people who are well respected within a community. And then there are people who are basically unknown or, you know, nobody really cares about them, or people don't really pay much attention to them. But when you honor the week among you, then because of that, Allah subhanaw taala will increase you in your sustenance, we during the holidays, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, helped him sorona What is akona elaborado alpha equal? Are you given help by Allah Exalted are You given help and victory and are you given sustenance except because of the week among you meaning it is because of the presence of

00:40:51--> 00:41:42

the week among you, and their prayers and their hope and dependence on Allah subhanaw taala and their, you know, the hours that they are provided, and you are also provided, but by virtue of them, because they are present among you. So, when Allah subhanaw taala has mercy on them, that mercy also reaches you. So, never think that you are the one who is benefiting the weak, no, it is you who are being benefited, because of the weak among you. So, you know, sometimes, if there are certain individuals in your family, who may not be very smart, or who are constantly, you know, asking for help, who are, you know, constantly asking, you know, for different forms of aid, whether it is

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

financial, or it is, you know, in their work, or it is in terms of, you know, schoolwork, etc, you you sort of feel tired of them, but why are they always asking me, right, you can you get sort of frustrated that you know what I want to be free of them. But we learn from this Heidi's that when you honor the week, and when you help them, then because of that you are given provision, and number 12 is Hydra, Hydra, that literally means migration, meaning you you leave the place where you're not able to worship Allah subhanaw taala in order to go to a place where you are able to worship Allah subhanaw taala. And hedra doesn't just mean that you migrate from one country to another hige It

00:42:31--> 00:43:12

also means leaving sin or leaving places of sin, or leaving a company that encourages you to sin. So for example, if you hang out with certain individuals who are always going to a shisha bar or something like that, right, you you are constantly invited over there. And when you're in that atmosphere, when you're in that environment, then you hear things, you say things you witness things that are not always appropriate. You're not gonna you know, you're drifting away from the masjid. Right, you are drifting towards the wrong company. So when you made that conscious decision that no I'm not going to go to that place ever again. I'm not going to do this thing ever again. Then this

00:43:12--> 00:44:01

is also a form of digital. So when you leave something for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. Then in the Quran, we learn when you had your fee, Sabina Leahy, he agreed to fill out the murah him and Kathy Ron was our that whoever migrates in the way of Allah, then you will find in the earth, ample, you know provision and and vastness, a lot of gain, any Allah subhanaw taala will not leave this person, empty handed without anything, Allah will certainly give the servant you know what he needs. So, these are some keys to provision. Allah subhanaw taala is a recipient of Lezak and He gives His servants and it is our you know, responsibility to seek the means through which Allah subhanaw taala

00:44:01--> 00:44:51

will provide us. Now, what are some of the laws that we can make? That mentioned these names or at least the the cipher of the attribute that Allah subhanaw taala is the provider? There's many, many doors. First of all, whenever a person would embrace Islam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would teach him a door and this door is very comprehensive. What is this? Ah, this Dora? is Allah humo fiddley we're how many were Dini what zucchini? You're asking Allah spawn tada for for things. Allah Houma. Allah is a fiddly Forgive me. What? How many have mercy on me? What Dini guide me what zucchini provide me.

00:44:52--> 00:44:58

So, whenever a person would embrace Islam, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would teach him this

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

Very easy though,

00:45:02--> 00:45:39

then a very comprehensive door. But Allah forgive me Forgive me for what? For all of my sense, and I have made many mistakes that I continue to make mistakes so y'all let you keep forgiving me. What? How many have mercy on me when I'm in trouble when I'm in need when I'm in difficulty? Y'all Allah, you have mercy on me. You uplift me. Where Dini you guide me that whenever I am lost, and I don't know what to do, and I am making a mistake, you guide me what zucchini, you provide me sustenance, tangible and intangible, you know, of this world and of the hereafter.

00:45:41--> 00:46:31

And then we see another era, in which we're asking Allah subhanaw taala for a certain type of risk, and that is his knowledge. We learn that the Prophet sallallahu earlier seven would say, Allah human farney Bhima I lumped honey, where are limini mae and ferroni What is zuke? Near illman Yun ferroni that, oh, Allah benefit me by that which you have taught me and teach me that which will benefit me what is zucchini and provide me with knowledge that will benefit me. And if you think about it, there's so much information, so much knowledge out there. Any right now, even at this moment, there are so many things that you could be doing any, if you're on the internet, you could be reading a

00:46:31--> 00:47:25

blog post, you could be, you know, listening to one live or another live or a previous recording, or, you know, a podcast. You there's so many, so much knowledge out there so much information out there, that you have access to 24 hours, basically. But we don't always benefit from what we read from what we listen to, you know, we, we hear, and we forget, we read and we forget, right? When it comes to our money also, we don't always benefit from it, you go purchase something, and then it's just sitting you're not able to use it. Right? So I also ask Allah subhanaw taala not just for knowledge, that will give me knowledge, but also ask for the ability to benefit from knowledge, and

00:47:25--> 00:48:06

especially what is Oconee riemannian ferroni Oh Allah you give me you provide me with knowledge that will truly benefit me. provide me with information with understanding that will truly benefit me. And when is it the knowledge becomes beneficial, when it becomes practical, meaning when a person understands how to practice it, and then they don't just understand how to practice it, they remember it at the right time. When they need to practice it, and they don't just think about it, they actually end up doing it. They actually end up practicing that knowledge. So what zirconia illman Yun ferroni we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for sustenance, sustenance that is lawful

00:48:06--> 00:48:54

sustenance that is by you, that is good, that is clean, that is beneficial and sustenance that is not just tangible, but also intangible that will benefit us in this life and also benefit us in the next life and any need that we have, whether it is material or immaterial, you know in terms of love relationships, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam described the love of the genital doula marinha as the risk, right that in the federal xiqu to herba I was given the risk of her love, you know, the fact that he loved her he had love for her, that itself was sustenance. And the fact that he received love from her was also sustenance. So any any type of sustenance that we feel we're

00:48:54--> 00:49:10

in need of remember, Allah is able to give it so seek provision and sustenance from a Rasul Allah Zack azzawajal. The next Name of Allah that we will be looking at is the name l mu Pete

00:49:11--> 00:49:59

l mu p it also means provider or it means keeper, protector preserver. And this name is mentioned once in the Quran where Allah subhanaw taala says what can Allah who Allah coolish a Makita that Allah is over all things a keeper? He is millipede over all things. Now when we look at the name of Pete's mcpeet is it means one who gives Hoot Okay, the one who gives Hoot and what is put quote is basically food that is sufficient to sustain life. Okay, food that is sufficient to sustain life.

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

Meaning food that is just enough to keep the body alive, and to allow the body to grow. And for the body to be nourished. So this is good. And basically good is what a creature what a living creature cannot survive without being there's a certain amount of, you know, food and water, for example, that we as human beings need, if we don't get it, then we won't be able to stay alive, then then we would starve and we would eventually die, and put in what our body needs to survive is not just food and water, right, it's a certain type of food and water, you see, there are many things that are in the world, but everything is not necessarily food for you. Right, there could be something that is,

00:50:54--> 00:51:23

you know, perfectly fine for a certain creature, for for an animal, but it would be poisonous for you. Right? Or it could be perfectly fine for another human being, but because you're allergic to it, it could actually kill you. Right, like, for example, nuts, you know, filled with, you know, good things, right. But when it comes to individuals who are allergic to nuts, in, if they eat even a tiny amount, it could kill them.

00:51:24--> 00:52:24

So good is what a creature cannot survive without what a creature needs, in order to live in order to be nourished. And this is why a quote, specifically refers to food, or, or nutrition. And it also includes, it also means a very little quantity, okay, because you don't need a lot to survive. You need just enough to, to, to to live right to be alive. So when Allah subhanaw taala is, ultimately what does that mean? When a lot of final thought is I'll repeat, it means that he is the Sustainer of all that exists, right. And when he is the Sustainer, of all that exists, it means that He is the creator of the means by which everything lives. So for example, if Allah subhanaw taala does not,

00:52:25--> 00:53:19

you know, if he did not create oxygen, if he did not provide us with water, then we wouldn't be able to live. Right. So in the Quran, we learn into it, firstly, that I attend, that when a las pantherella created the earth, what the raffia aquata that he determined or he distributed in the earth, it's a glut, meaning its provisions. So in different parts of the world, Allah subhanaw taala has placed provision and that provision, that sustenance, that food, it varies from place to place, but in every part of the world, there is what the creatures of that place need to survive. So for example, even in the most barren of deserts, right the creatures that live there, find sustenance

00:53:19--> 00:54:11

over there, like you would think that nothing could survive in this heat, or in, in the in the, in the extreme cold, even you would think that nothing could survive here. But Allah subhanaw taala gives the quote, you know, to the creatures, that the creatures need. So, Allah subhanaw taala is a locate meaning he is a Sustainer of all that exists, and He is the creator of the means by which everything lives. And then this also means when a loss punctata is a repeat that he is the possessor of power, he is a looked at it so unlucky, it means and looked at it, meaning the one who is all able all powerful, because it is only the one who is all able, who can give each creature what it

00:54:11--> 00:54:48

needs to survive. Because if he if he was not able, he would not be able to give them and if he would not be able to give them this means that they would not be able to survive. So if there is life, if there are creatures anywhere on Earth, if there is life, what does that mean? That means that there is a perfectly able perfectly competent provider who is constantly giving them what they need in order to survive. So Allah subhanaw taala is unmuted, meaning he is the possessor of power.

00:54:49--> 00:54:59

So every creature depends on him. And if he did not provide them, they would not survive. And then I'm okay it also means that he is the half

00:55:00--> 00:55:33

film, meaning he is the preserver the protector, the keeper of his creatures, because he he, he is the one who, who gives them quote, so that they can live. So by giving them quote, he is preserving them. He is protecting them, he is keeping them alive, He is their guardian, right? So, if they are alive, it means that he has given them that life he has given them the sustenance that they need.

00:55:35--> 00:56:24

And this is because he is aware of everything, right? He's He's acquainted with everything. So, every creature needs, you know, protection, it needs food, and, you know, the unique things that it needs for survival. And Allah soprano thought is the one who has given every creature what it needs, again, reflect over the different needs of each creature, the different types of code that they need, right at different times of day, night, year, right? And he's the one who is constantly giving. So in the Quran in Surah Nisa, I 85. Allah subhanaw taala says my Yesh barsha ferriter say he attend your Kula hokey flamin our can Allahu Allah condition in Makita, that whoever

00:56:26--> 00:57:12

you know makes an intercession that is that is bad. First, the good intercession is mentioned and then the bad intercession, meaning you advocate for someone for a bad cause. That for a good cause, or a bad cause, then what will happen? You will have a portion of that, what can Allah Who are the militia in Makita and Allah is over all things a keeper, meaning everything depends on him. Don't think that people rely on your advocacy, that you need to speak for them and you need to intercede for them. You need to you know, they depend on you know, you are only a means you are only a means and you must do your part, you must advocate for those who are in need, you must speak up for those

00:57:12--> 00:58:00

who are being oppressed, but never be too proud of yourself that you know what they need me and they depend on me. No, they don't they depend on Allah. Because what can Allahu Allah coolish a Makita He is the one who keeps his creatures alive and he gives them what they are in need of. And when Allah says Python is an mcpeet, it means that he is the giver of worldly and spiritual sustenance, that he doesn't just give his creatures food and water and air, right and shelter, but he also gives them what they need for their eternal abode. And that is Amen. Right. So he is the giver of worldly and spiritual sustenance. When it comes to dogs, by this name, we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:58:00--> 00:58:41

wa sallam made this draw that along Medina, there is an early Mohammed in Kuta, that Oh, Allah make the provision of the family of Mohammed sufficient for them, make their provision put for them. And what this means is that first of all, we see that the Prophet sallallahu Arneson prayed for his family. Now, when you realize that there are people who depend on you, then of course you worry for them, right? You worry for your children, you worry for your grandchildren, you worry, not just for their food, but you worry for their home, where they're going to live, you worry for their education, how are they going to be able to afford it, you worry for their, you know, their

00:58:41--> 00:59:00

independence, you worry for their rights, you worry for their welfare, you worry for their health, you you have these concerns. So we see from the way of the Prophet sallallahu earlier said that he made God to Allah. So when we make God you know, don't just make the offer yourself, make your offer your dependence for the people around you.

00:59:01--> 00:59:53

So the Prophet sallallahu, Urdu Sena made da. And what this means is, first of all, that Allah you give them goods, right? So that they're not in need of people. They're not in hunger, right? They're not in deprivation, they don't die from from starvation, from neediness. Right? You, you give them what they need to survive, so that they don't need to beg people and they don't have to suffer deprivation. And secondly, what this also means is that the Prophet sallallahu already said I'm asked for quote for his family, meaning just enough to survive. Meaning he didn't ask for abundance of wealth for his family. Rather, he asked for quotes because remember, quote is also a very small

00:59:53--> 00:59:58

quantity, because a small quantity of food is enough for a creature to survive.

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

So

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

He asked for, quote, why, so that their needs are fulfilled. But there isn't an abundance of worldly things, because that abundance definitely becomes a trial. Right, it becomes a fitna, this doesn't mean that we should pray for poverty that Allah make me poor. No, we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for risk, but we should be content with whatever that Allah subhanaw taala gives us because he knows what is best for us. But we should also realize that the abundance of wealth is definitely a trial. So don't ask for deprivation, rather ask Allah subhanaw taala for strength, for the ability to to survive this test. And we have the example of you know, so a man or listen with so much wealth,

01:00:45--> 01:00:54

right, so much power, and he was grateful to Allah. So, there is a path of gratitude and the result of the path of patience,

01:00:55--> 01:00:59

that through gratitude and through patience, you can reach the same station,

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

that when Allah subhanaw taala gives you more than he definitely increase in your gratitude, and when provision is restricted for you, you have barely enough then that is the path of patience, as well as gratitude, both. So, so Allahumma Jahren, risk ali-mohammadi quota, and you could make a similar doll for your family, if you feel that, you know, you people are different. Certain people, when they have an abundance of wealth, they get very, very deceived by it, they get distracted by it, they start forgetting about Allah subhanaw taala they start neglecting their ibadah their you know their Salah, so when you see that weakness, you know, for example, in certain individuals or

01:01:45--> 01:02:20

even in yourself, that wealth is a fit enough for me, then you could make a door like that, that Oh Allah give me enough, just enough for survival. Right? Not that don't ask for poverty, not at all. Ask for just enough, right? And ask Allah subhanaw taala for strength, that Allah give me the ability to survive this trial, whatever that trial may be, and ask Allah subhanaw taala for contentment that he or Allah, whatever situation you put me in, give me contentment over your decree.

01:02:21--> 01:02:25

The next Name of Allah subhanaw taala that we will be looking at is the name of morally

01:02:27--> 01:03:15

and morally, the one who gives and this name and morally is paired with the name and manner because a man You're the one who withholds or the one who prevents and and Merkley, the one who gives, both of these names are complimentary. They come together, meaning they're supposed to be understood together. So Allah subhanaw taala is the giver and he is also the preventer. This name and markley is mentioned only in the Sunnah, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that may you at the level will be higher on you factor of a deed that whoever Allah wishes good for he gives him the understanding of the religion what in the AMA and our Kasim where you're applying

01:03:17--> 01:03:37

that that I am the distributor the divider here the the version of Hardee's that I put over here mentions that Allah is the one who gives an another version will law who morally The words are Willa who morally meaning Allah is the one who is the giver and morally is Allah azza wa jal

01:03:39--> 01:04:06

Willa Hill morclean what an apostle, in another version it says when LaHood immorally Allah is the one who gives an I am the one who distributes wealth among people. So who is a morally and morally is the one who gives our top right and they're off top means a gift or or to give bestowal all right to give. And some say that our thought is to give by way of

01:04:07--> 01:04:59

favor only meaning by way of sheer favor, not because you know you are in need of the other or not, because you know, you're paying them for something, but you are giving them a favor, okay. This is one of the significations of the word are thought to give or to give as favor. And it also means to give generously. So, Allah subhanaw taala is a more earthly and he is also a learner, meaning he is the giver and he is also the preventer. So if you are given anything who is the source of that Allah and if something is withheld from you, if something has been prevented from you, then who is the one who caused that again, it is a loss

01:05:00--> 01:05:27

panel Tada. So he is a manner of morally. And we learned in Hadith the Prophet sallallahu already said and said Allah whom Allah man Nero Lima uplighter, what are more clear, Lima aminata, that Allah there is no preventer of what you give, and there is no giver of what you prevent. Meaning, if you give something no one can prevent that. And if you decide to prevent something from someone, no one can give that.

01:05:28--> 01:06:15

So he is the giver. He is the preventer when it comes to unmanned air that the last panel thought is the one who prevents What does that mean? It means that he he protects his servants, he he he menara any he young, no harm from them, he prevents harm from them, meaning he protects them, he saves them. Remember the incident where once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was resting under a tree, and a man came and you know, took the sword of the Prophet sallallahu Ernie he was sending because it was hanging on the tree. He took that sword and he and he said to the Prophet salallahu Urdu send him loudly, that Miam no company who can prevent you from me, meaning who can protect you

01:06:15--> 01:06:37

from me. And the Prophet sallallahu earlier said him said Allah, Allah, Allah, He said that three times that Allah is the one who can, who can prevent me from you, meaning who can save me from the harm that you want to cause me. So Allah is a manner meaning he is the one who defends his servants, he's the one who, who protects them.

01:06:38--> 01:07:34

And sometimes, he prevents, you know, his servants from receiving certain things. So a hitman meaning he deprives them of certain things, but in that is also a favor. Allahu Akbar, anyone, Allah subhanaw taala prevent something from you. That is, in fact, another way of giving you what you need, giving you some form of benefit. So for example, if health is taken away from you, then what does that mean? You have nothing, this is a void? No, no, it means that over your patients, you are receiving a whole lot of reward reward that you cannot even imagine. You know, one of the companions actually made da, that Allah give me fever, but not such fever, that will prevent me from praying in

01:07:34--> 01:07:35

the masjid.

01:07:36--> 01:08:23

And not such fever that will prevent me from going out in your way. So that companion anytime that Someone touched him, his body would be warm. But along with that, he was still able to pray and he was still able to, you know, go out in the way of Allah and do good things. But any, when you suffer from some kind of pain, even in your body, what does that mean that as long as you have that pain, you have you're receiving reward from Allah subhanaw taala. A Buddha in the long run, who mentioned, you know, the benefit of fever, that fever is experienced by the entire body. Right? It's not just concentrated in your head, it's not just concentrated on your hand or on your feet, it's all over

01:08:23--> 01:08:52

your body. So what does that mean? That means that for the your entire body here receiving reward, right, for every, every limb, for every every portion of your body, you are receiving its share of reward. So when Allah subhanaw taala, prevents something, he takes something away from you, or he withhold something from you, then what does that mean? That he is in fact, giving you something else through

01:08:53--> 01:08:55

through the means of depriving you

01:08:57--> 01:09:10

in another Hadees, we learn that Allah subhanaw taala prevents his believing slave from the world, meaning he doesn't let his believing slave enjoy the world. Right?

01:09:11--> 01:09:17

Why? Just as you prevent your sick people from water,

01:09:18--> 01:09:59

you know, for example, when a person is unwell, right? Like for example, if you're if your child is unwell, right, they have fever, they have you know, a call for example, and they want ice cream. Right? And they want a slushie and they want you know, something else that you know is bad for them in their condition. They could be crying, they could be yelling, they asked for it but you still don't give it why out of love for them because you know that it is harmful for them. And just like that, when Allah subhanaw taala withhold something from you. It is not to the bill. The goal over here is not to harm you and to deprive you

01:10:00--> 01:10:46

You want to make you suffer suffering is not the goal. The goal is to give you something else in its place, and you don't know all that you're receiving. You don't realize it immediately. You sometimes, you know, realize it later on in your life. But that's not necessary, it's possible that you only realize what you have gained from your loss only on the Day of Judgment only in the hereafter. So, Allah subhanaw taala is a manner which in a way means that he is actually giving you by withholding something from you or by preventing you from something and when Allah subhanaw taala is ultimate manner and morally This means that everything is in his hand. So he gives and when he

01:10:46--> 01:11:24

decides to give, no one can prevent and when he decides to prevent, no one can can give you so ask him, Allah subhanaw taala says and sort of fathered I or two that may have the Hila holy nurse in Iraq, Martin Fowler mum sikhala her that when Allah subhanaw taala opens up a mercy for the people, then no one can close that meaning of when Allah opens the gates of His mercy for people meaning when Allah wants to give something to to the people, no one can prevent that. Well, my usyk fella morcilla who and if Allah subhanaw taala withhold something that no one can bring it.

01:11:26--> 01:11:33

And when Allah subhanaw taala is an Merkley This means that his bestowal is general for all

01:11:34--> 01:12:19

general for all meanings, our thought is, um, so he gives to everybody, those whom he loves, and also those whom he does not necessarily love. So in total, Islam is 20, Allah says, Kula, namida, Allah, Allah, that to all we give these and those meaning those who believe and also those who don't, you look to the right, if people have something Allah has given it, you look to the left if people have something Allah has given it, so cool, and you may do her hula, hula in minocqua, Arabic, this is from the bestowal of your Lord, one cannot, one I cannot, I thought what a bigger muhabura and there are thought the bestowal of your Lord is not limited, it is not restricted, that

01:12:19--> 01:13:11

it is only given to some and not all. So in one way his bestowal is general for all. But in another way, it is also exclusive to some how that there is our thought costs, meaning there is a special bestowal mean their special blessings that Allah gives to special servants. How in the world for example, there is a special RF part that Allah gives to some people. And what is that? Amen? Faith. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that we're in Allah europlug dunya Manu hibou Allah hibou that Allah you're a p he gives the world meaning the world and its things to those whom he loves, and also those who he does not love. What are European he man illuma you hibou but he does

01:13:11--> 01:14:02

not give a man except to those whom he loves. So when it comes to worldly things, that is general for all, but when it comes to a man that is only for the people whom Allah subhanaw taala loves and part of this our thought hos this exclusive or special gifts special bestowal is that he gives halaal risk righteous children you know a righteous spouse to his righteous leaves and in the Hereafter, he will give endless outdoor endless bestowal to his slaves in Jenna just a mere Rebecca Otto and he Saba our thoughts on the Rama jus with a bestowal that will be uninterrupted endless, any so much and so continuous that it will never ever end. So Allah soprano tada isn't morally so He

01:14:02--> 01:14:49

bestows in the world and also in the hereafter. And then what he withholds is also a bestowal. And then we see that last panel tada has given every creature its form. So in the Quran in Surah Taha I have 50, we learn that Musa alayhis salaam, he said Rob Boone, Allah they are otaku lashay in Hong Kong sama hada, that our Lord is the one who has given every creature its form, right its form, and then he has also guided it, meaning every creature its form has been given to it, bestowed to it by Allah Subhana THON, which means that your your body, your know your hands, your the the different functions within your body, the different abilities within your body, you know, its form that has

01:14:49--> 01:14:57

been given by who it's a gift, by who, by Allah subhanaw taala amazing. I remember

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

we were in some museum

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

And I don't remember exactly what kind of grip it was, was basically on display that, you know, you use your hands, you know, the fact that you have a thumb, right, the fact that you have five fingers, you're able to do so much. And if you did not have, you know your hand the way it is, you wouldn't be able to do so many things. So they had put, you know, different types of basically sticks, and, you know, different types of levers, basically, that you could use to grab things. And that was just to demonstrate, you know, what ability or limitation you would have, if you did not have a thumb, if you did not have, you know, five fingers if you did not have two hands, and

01:15:45--> 01:16:38

Subhanallah me on the surface, it seemed like yeah, I can easily pick this object up with these two, you know, levers, but when you actually try it, it was so hard, it was so difficult. So we take our body for granted, this is an alcohol, this is a bestowal a generous gift from Allah subhanaw taala. And really, we don't realize what a blessing health is, until some of it or a lot of it is taken away from us, then we realize what a huge blessing health is, that at times, you have a whole list of things to do. And you want to do those things. But your body is not all there, you're not able to use your body, you feel crippled, you feel so weak. So health, your body its functions are a

01:16:38--> 01:17:16

blessing our thought from Allah subhanaw taala. But it's amazing how we're so focused on you know how our body looks over constantly complaining, I'm too short, my legs are not long. You know, this is the problem with my body. This is a problem with my phases a problem with my nose and there's a problem with my skin tone, he was so focused on on, you know, finding fault and complaining that we don't value the gift that Allah subhanaw taala has given us. So Allah, Allah morally, he gives our part and part of that is that he has given every creature its form.

01:17:17--> 01:17:22

And then he He bestows in the world and he also bestows in the hereafter.

01:17:23--> 01:17:43

We see that in Jannah, Allah subhanaw taala will give a lot of gifts to his slaves. And in a hadith in Sahih Muslim we learn that that allows parents I will tell the righteous servants that are the whole agenda to enter agenda for tomorrow at mu for huella calm and whatever that you see belongs to you.

01:17:44--> 01:18:29

Anything that you see in general, right in your agenda, that is yours, you own it, you are the kink, this is your kingdom. So they will say robina or tightener Milan therapy I had a minute earlier mean that our Lord you have given us what you have not given to anyone from among the worlds. So each person in general will think that he has the best he or she has the best fire colo certain last Pandora will say luck Homer in the off volume in her that I have something for you that is even better than all of this. So they will wonder what could be that which is better than all of this. And the last panel thought I will say the relyea Follow us hotwire la cumbre the who about the my

01:18:29--> 01:19:05

approval so I will never be upset with you ever again. Allah, this is the our thought that we should be aiming for that he or Allah you bestow your approval on me Yama, you'll be pleased with me, so that I never do anything that would displease you and you would never be displeased with me. This is the thought that we should be striving towards. And even this body that Allah has given us as our pa that Allah has given us his life that he has given us is only a means of earning that great ol thought.

01:19:06--> 01:19:54

So when the last panel thought is that morally, what is it that we should do? It means that first of all, we should depend on Allah subhanaw taala trust him because he knows what to give. And when. And when he keeps something from you. Through that also he's actually giving you right when we look at the prophets of Allah, we see that be experienced loss in the world, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam any only one child of his survived him only one daughter, all of his other children died in his lifetime. So, if for example, a person does not have children or is no longer able to have children, or there is loss of children, this is indeed extremely painful. But realize Allah is the

01:19:54--> 01:19:59

man here, and he is the morally so even though he has prevented you know something from

01:20:00--> 01:20:45

For me, in fact, this is an opportunity. This is a means through which Alice Python has given me, so be pleased with him. And I had these we learn the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, may he be miserable, there Isa of the dinar, what did that may, the May the worshiper of the dinar, and the dyrham be miserable worshipper of the knot and Dylan, Who is he, the Prophet sallallahu ertapenem explained that in earlier neuroglia, if he is given something, then he is happy, what Illa Murata lumea and if he is not given something, then he is not happy. And he is only happy when he is given what he wants. Such people the Prophet sallallahu already said and prayed against them. So don't be

01:20:45--> 01:21:33

greedy. Don't be greedy, be be content with Allah subhanaw taala has decisions and he be happy. Right? This doesn't mean that you don't seek more you don't desire more you, you have the right to desire whatever that you want. And Allah subhanaw taala is able to give you right of course, as long as it's a lawful desire. But the main thing is that whatever that Allah gives you, be pleased with that. Don't be Don't be, you know of noxious and greedy. And then when Allah subhanaw taala is a morally This means that we should adopt the right ways in, in in receiving Allah's bestowal in your head these we learned that in Allah how to feel cool in your Hebrew riff, where euro p i Li e milea,

01:21:33--> 01:22:03

Euroclear Ireland on the last panel, tada is compassionate. He loves compassion and he gives for compassion and gentleness, what he does not give for harshness, meaning when you're gentle with people, then Allah will give you what he will not give you, if you were to be harsh with them. When Allah is and morally it means that we should be generous as well we should also give the Prophet sallallahu earlier said himself that hands are of three types. There are three kinds of hands, an ad the latha.

01:22:05--> 01:22:31

And then he explained that Allah's hand is the upper one for a year the law he earlier because everything comes from Allah, he he is always giving and and we are always receiving. So you're the law here earlier. And then we're doing morally Allah totally her the the hand of the morally meaning the person who gives is the one that is near the hand of Allah.

01:22:33--> 01:22:38

And then were to say is Sophia, the hand of the beggar is the lowest one.

01:22:40--> 01:23:23

So basically what we are encouraged to do over here is that we should be a giver. Don't always be begging, asking, demanding, right? Be the giving one because when you give, then you are closer to Allah subhanaw taala How is it that we call upon Allah through these names? We see that in Salah when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would get up from Nucor he would say Allah Hamada banana can hand mill a semi wet he will audibly warmer Bina Homer will Emma shake them and shake embargo. Allah thinner, he will manage lemonnier alima are applied to Allah more clearly monera to Allah And Pharaoh the demon culture, that Allah Our Lord, to you be the praise that would fill the

01:23:23--> 01:24:04

heavens and the earth and that which is between them, and that which will please you besides them worthy Are you of all praise and glory? No one can withhold what you give, or give what you withhold and the greatness of the great avails, not against you, and after every firm Salah so for example, you pray the full record of love, then after that, La ilaha illAllah who at the hula Sheree Karla homolka Allah who will hand wahoo our ally coalition in Kadir Allah lemonnier Lima our Plato will more clearly laminata what I infer with Ljd Min caljan so these are the hours that we should try to memorize because the Prophet sallallahu Arneson would say them after Luca on getting up and also

01:24:04--> 01:24:30

after saying the Sunnah after performing the prayer, so for example, you say the Salaam you say Allahu Akbar have suffered a loss for the last a little longer than then you can say this and then you can continue with your other upcard and doras inshallah, we will conclude over here so panicle lahoma will be handed a shadow Allah Illa Illa and a stone Furukawa Tobu la wa Salaam Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
