Rosa Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim or salat wa salam O Allah of Surah Al Karim rubbish rocklea assadi were silly emri wash Luna Rokita melissani yufka who Kali, Allah My dear Colby was said that rissani was roots of Hemet of Colby amin, Europa, Ireland in
inshallah, we will continue with our study of the Most Beautiful Names of Allah the Exalted and today inshallah We will begin with the name of Allah Al musar is, this is a name that we came across when we were learning about one of the names of Allah subhanaw taala in our previous session, where we came across the Hadith where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that in Allahu Allah moosari that Indeed Allah is Al moosari, he is an absolute Basset He is the one who expands or the one who constricts things, and he is a reserved or a rasik, meaning the one who provides so we see that this name is actually mentioned in the sooner
it does not come in the Quran. And the meaning of this name is we, when we look at the word Elmo, sorry, this is from the word Serato and sarala, is to light a fire. And of course, when fire is kindled, it's understood that it's going to increase and decrease depending on you know, the fuel and depending on the wind, etc. So sound on now is to light a fire or to make it burn fiercely. And of course, that would be by adding more and more fuel. So, fire is something that increases and decreases, you can see the flames rising up and you can see them decreasing. So, flames increase and decrease and the series is to do so intensely meaning to light a fire very intensely to cause an
increase in the fire and from the same root as the word series and sorry, in the Quran, it comes for the fire or the blazing hellfire. So, the series also means to cause increase or decrease to the prices of things and when it comes to you know the prices of things or the value of different items in the market. Of course, you know, these these values or, or the prices they increase and decrease because of many factors. So, Sarah is actually to fix the amount of the prices of food, why because it when it fluctuates too much then this is something that is difficult on people. So this is what people want, that prices should be fixed. And we learned that once in Medina, there is a hadith and
a Buddha would that there was a period of severe inflation where the food prices were extremely high. So the companions requested the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to impose price controls, to fix the prices so that people would not be able to, you know, increase the prices too much. So this is when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah is almost married, meaning I am not I am not allowed to do that it is Allah subhanaw taala who determines the value the price of things, he is allowed to build the one who with his will and wisdom, you know, restricts or constricts certain matters, and he is Albacete, the one who with his wisdom and his will expands or
increases certain matters. So, meaning that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who gives things their their value. So, what this means is that Allah subhanaw taala is the one by whose will the prices of things increase or decrease and the statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the law
Ha ha, hoo well moosari that Indeed Allah, it is He, who is Elmo sorry, this, you know, emphasizes the fact that it is only by the will and power of Allah subhanaw taala that, that the prices of things are determined or they fluctuate, meaning it is not people who have the ability, or the authority to impose price controls, because we see that when it comes to, you know, the matter of, you know, the the price or the value of different things, there are so many factors, that effect that, you know, for example, because of supply and demand, like last year, you know, when it comes to face masks, nobody wanted them, right. I mean, it was something that, you know, nobody really
cared about. And now all of a sudden, you know, people who are making face masks and selling them, you know, people in those industries, you know, they're making so much money. And this is a time where, you know, sometimes face masks can also be extremely expensive. So, because of, you know, demand, and also because of supply, we see that the prices of things increase and decrease, when it comes to food prices, you know, there are times when certain crops get ruined, or because of natural, you know, causes, there isn't much yield, there isn't much harvest, or because of, you know, lack of rain or because of fire, etc. You know, this is something that affects the, the the
value of food. Likewise, if there's, you know, ships carrying freight, you know, they drown, and things like that, or because of, you know, political issues, you know, sanctions, trade tariffs, etc, all of these factors affect, you know, the price or the value of things, when it comes to, you know, we can see in recent years, you know, in certain places, when it comes to real estate, it very, very expensive, and then remember the time of recession, when people were literally walking out of their homes, and, and houses were being sold for such little money. So, all of this shows us that, you know, these are matters which are beyond people's control, any when when the price of
something increases, because of natural factors because of natural causes, who is it that you can blame? Who is it that you can hold responsible, you cannot. So, this shows us that it is Allah subhanaw taala, who is truly in control, you know, we realize how Allah subhanaw taala is in control of all matters, when we experience certain things in our, you know, personal lives, but then also when it comes to our economic state, you know, of your locality of your province of your country, or in general, all over the world. These are all situations that remind us that really, we are not the ones who are in control, it is Allah soprano thada who is in control. So when Allah subhanaw taala
is almost married, what does that mean? It means that we should believe that the price at which we have, you know, found something being sold or the price at which, you know, we end up buying something was actually by the will and plan of Allah subhanaw taala You know, sometimes we go and find something on sale, and, you know, we feel like we got a really good deal, or we go and we get to buy something really expensive, and then and we are in need of it, we have no choice, uh, we, we do spend a lot of money, but then we find out that somebody else got the exact same thing on a much lesser, you know, for a for a much lesser price. So, why the difference, this was by Allah subhanaw
taala his decree by his other, right, you bought a house 10 years ago, you paid very little money, and today somebody is buying the same house and they're paying so much money. So, this difference is by the other of Allah and realize that this is a unique test for you designed by Allah subhanaw taala. So, instead of thinking about, you know, I should have bought the house 10 years ago or I you know, I should not have bought, you know, such and such thing on that day, I should have waited a few more days, instead of you know, being stuck on I should have, I could have, you know, these are things that put us in, you know, in in unnecessary anxiety and, and also they make us doubt, you
know, our decisions make us more indecisive, you know, just put your trust in Allah Allah subhanaw taala is almost sorry that it is by his will, that I ended up you know, buying this particular item for this much money. This was a unique test for
To me, you know, designed by Allah subhanaw taala and this or the name of Allah and Massara also shows us that, you know, it also teaches us that when we are in any, you know, in some financial constraint or we are going through some economic crisis, you know, as a family or even as as a country then or even when we're going to purchase something and we want you know, a good deal we want a good value, then we should call upon Allah al-musawi any made dar to Allah, that Yeah, yeah, Allah, Allah masari you know, make this matter easy for me make this deal easy for me, you know, sometimes in a person's business, you know, they're not able to sell things or they have to continue
to reduce the prices or or they see that there's so much you know, competition because of which, you know, your prices have to be decreased, and things like that, this is a time when you call upon Allah by this name and masari that he or Allah, you're the one who determines the value you are the one who fixes the price of things. So, make this in my favor and make this matter profitable for me, I mean, the next Name of Allah subhanaw taala that we will be looking at today is the name I look away
look away the one who is powerful the ever powerful. Now the name of Allah alpha we occurs nine times in the Quran
and the name alpha we is from Buddha meaning away is the one who has Buddha and what is the word Buddha is strength or power awliya is when something becomes strong or robust or sturdy and it is the opposite of barf barf is to be weak. And the opposite of this is cool, is to be strong.
It is slightly different from from ability because wondra is to have ability and courage is to is to be unable. So kodra is the opposite of reads. And
is the opposite of barf. So, an away is the one who is strong, the one who is powerful. What does that mean when Allah subhanaw taala is alcovy What does that mean? It means that first of all, Allah subhanaw taala has over his power is absolute, it is ultimate, it is permanent, meaning his power is the strongest, his his strength is, is the most powerful, and, and his strength his power is such that it does not weaken with time and his strength, his power is such that nothing at all, is outside of his power. Nothing is beyond his strength, meaning he is so strong, he is so powerful, that everything is weak before him
It means that he is free of need of everyone, he is independent of all because he is ultra weak. And he is free of any weakness, which means that his power cannot be defeated. It cannot be weakened, it cannot be disabled in any way. His power, His strength is such that it that it is that Allah subhanaw taala has created so much any when you look at all the creation around you realize that this is the work of a look away and see how powerful he is that he has created all of this. Think about all of the forces that exist within the universe and Allah subhanaw taala is the creator of all of them.
And his schoolwork, his power is such that he just wills and whatever he wills wherever he wants happens. So nothing can become an obstacle to His will. And he so powerful he is that when he wills something when he wants something to happen, then nothing at all can become an obstacle for him. And when Allah subhanaw taala is away It means that every power is belittled before his power, it is nothing compared to him or before him. And it means that nothing at all can overcome him. Nothing at all can compete with him or can prevent him from executing His will for
Doing what he wants, and nothing can escape him. And, and nothing can repel his decree his will, nothing can win against Allah subhanaw taala. And this also means that nothing can cause benefit or harm to Allah subhanaw taala because he's alcovy He is so powerful, that no one can harm him in any way. And no one could benefit him in him in any way because he is, he is all powerful. And when Allah subhanaw taala is a way it means that all creatures are in his control. So this means that no one can move. No one can do anything, except by the power that Allah subhanaw taala has given them except by the ability that Allah Subhana Allah has given them only after he wills he allows. And
when Allah subhanaw taala is alcovy It also means that he is the source of all power, meaning he gives power to whom He wills, as per his wisdom, and he takes it away from whom He wills as per his wisdom. So in Surah assura ir 19 Allah subhanaw taala says, Allah who locally from bury body, yellow Zuko, Manisha wa who will karela disease, that Allah is kind to his slaves, he provides whomsoever He wills, and he is the karoui that disease. So when Allah subhanaw taala is alcovy What are we supposed to do? What is our part? How should we think? What is it that we should believe? What is it that we should do? Beating the belief, you know, in this name, and the knowledge of this name, how
should that impact our lives, our actions, and also our thinking? So, the first thing is that when Allah subhanaw taala is alcovy it means that we should believe that all power is with Allah, we should believe that Allah is the source of all strength, La hawla wala quwata illa Billah there is no mind or power except with Allah. And every power that exists is it has been created by him and it has been given by him, because when he is all powerful himself, and he is the source of all power, that means that if any creature has any power, any strength, any force, it has been created, and it has been given to them by Allah subhanaw taala, whether it is the kua that the angels have, and we
learn in the Quran about how Angel Jabri is so powerful, and it could be the power that people have, it could be the power that is with the jinn, you know, the strength, you know, that the jinn have, or different animals, you know, for example, certain animals their power, you know, the power, the force that they have in their jaws, in their teeth is so strong, you know, certain other animals, they're able to run so fast, they're able to climb so fast. So, any power that any creature has, whether it is in the living things, or in the nonliving things even remember that Allah subhanaw taala is the creator of that power. So, whether it is you know, the force the power that exists in
water, or in fire, or in wind, or in earth, or in iron, in the mountains, in you know, in the sky, in the rivers, in the seas, in the oceans, in ice, in snow, in heat, any force, any strength, remember, it has been created by Allah, soprano, thada and all of that combined Yeni if if we were to put together if we were to consolidate all the power and all the force that the creatures have all of that power, before the power of Allah is nothing.
This is the power of Allah subhanaw taala in total Hajj is 74 Allah subhanaw taala says Mercado Allah haka cadre, they have not,
you know, they have not appraised Allah, any that they don't give Allah the status, or or the the worth, that Allah subhanaw taala truly has, they don't realize how powerful Allah subhanaw taala is, and because of that, they don't show due respect. They don't think well, or properly about Allah subhanaw taala in Allah Allah karoui University
Indeed Allah is sure the GUI, he is ever strong he is Aziz he is ever mighty. So, remember that all the powers all the creative powers combined and either nothing before Allah subhanaw taala. earlier also we learned about how the earth will be in the hands of Allah on the day of judgement, the skies will be rolled up in the hands of Allah on the Day of Judgment, any Allah subhanaw taala is alcovy So, where will the force of all the waters and all the fire and you know all the wind and all of the earth and all of the creatures combined where will that go? It will be nothing, it will it will dwindle away before the power of alcovy and this is something that we should never forget. You know,
sometimes what happens is that when we when we you know see something very beautiful, or very powerful, we had very impressed by it. And we get deceived by that. So we learned in total Caf about how that man who owned the two gardens when he saw them he said you know that I don't think this is going to end at all. This is going to stay here forever. So his friend reprimanded him that well Ola is the hunter genetic occulta Masha Allah hula quwata illa Billah that why is it that when you you know entered your garden? Why didn't you say Masha Allah, this is you know, whatever that Allah wills any This is because Allah subhanaw taala wielded Excuse me.
Okay, so why don't you say that? Masha Allah La quwata illa Billah that what that this is what Allah subhanaw taala has willed and there is no power or no mind except by Allah subhanaw taala. So, when Allah soprano thought is a way it means that we should believe that he is the source of absolute strength, and he is the giver of power and all power before him. You know all the power of the creatures before him is nothing. Secondly, when Allah subhanaw taala is alcovy it means that we should remember that Allah subhanaw taala has power, His power is permanent. Our power, our strength is not permanent. And the power, the strength of any creature also is not permanent. So we shouldn't
get deceived by the strength that we have, or by the strength that any creature has. Because no matter how strong someone is, they will eventually become weak except for Allah subhanaw taala Allah Subhana Allah tells us in sudo room I have 54 that Allah who levy Hello kakum mille barfing that Allah is the one who has created you from weakness, meaning you were weak. So Majora mimbar, the barfing quwata. And then he made after your weakness, strength, meaning you were weak at the beginning, you were when you were little. And then Allah subhanaw taala is the one who gave you strength, he is the one who gave you power. And you see when a child is born, poor little creature
doesn't even have the strength to hold its neck. Right to to even have control over, you know, his arms and legs, or even eyes Subhana line the first few days, babies don't even have the strength to you know, focus their vision. And then what happens over time, they develop that goolwa that strength. So who gave them that cooler, it is Allah subhana wa tada and then
some Majola mimbar, the quwata Darfur, then he made after a poor weakness again, meaning when you decline, your your strength, your power, it declines over time, and we experienced this, you know, perhaps there was a time when you were able to run really fast and now you cannot even think about running. Perhaps there was a time when you could you know go hiking and go swimming and you know, do this and do that and now there is no way you could even think about about doing that. So, when it comes to the force, the power that we have, remember that it is limited, it has been given to us as a gift from Allah subhanaw taala as a test, and we should realize that it is temporary. It is not
going to be with us forever. And for always. It's temporarily with us. So we should not
Get deceived by what Allah subhanaw taala has given us right now. In total Casals is 78, we learn about the story of our own, who had a lot of wealth and he said in number 82, who Allah eliminator in the, he said, I have been given this because of my knowledge, meaning I have all of this because I know what to do. I have earned all of this I have acquired all of this with my expertise, you know, with my knowledge with my skill. So it is said a welcome yarlung an Allah, Allah communicably mineral caroni man who ushered Doom in who What
does he not know that Allah subhanaw taala destroyed before him generations who were way stronger than him, who were who were way more powerful than him, I shut the man who wasn't there kuwa was way more than the kuwa that qarun possess to act through jamara and they also had more, you know, in terms of what they had accumulated. So don't get deceived by by what you have been given by the power of the force that Allah subhanaw taala has given you in total belcarra I want 65 we learn while we are on larina wala mu AB our own Allah Azza Anil quwata Lila heater Mira, that on the Day of Judgment, those people who did wrong and learn wrong can be, you know, sin over here, it could be
oppression, even any those who abuse their power, what will they realize on the day of judgment when they see the punishment, that Anil quwata Lila, he jumia that all power belongs to Allah. And he they will realize at that time, that they truly have no power. And it was because of the power that they had in the world, that they committed so much oppression, that they did so much wrong. So on the Day of Judgment, people will realize that you know what, we don't own any power, all power belongs to Allah subhanaw taala. Then when Allah subhanaw taala is alcovy it means that we should be grateful for the who whether Allah subhanaw taala has given us and we should not abuse it. Because
consider how Allah subhanaw taala is so powerful alcovy
yet he is he is just he is kind, he is generous towards his slaves. So if Allah has given us power, does that mean that we should become abusive and oppressive? No, this would be extremely wrong. So those who abuse the power the COA that Allah has given them the look at how Allah subhanaw taala deals with them into the facilite I have 15 we learned for a ma don't festac Babu fill out of the belated help. So as for odd they were arrogant in the earth without any right. And what is meant by their arrogance is their abuse of power. We'll call no man Asha domina Kawa and they said who is stronger than us in might? Any there is no one who is stronger than us. We are the best. We are the
strongest, we are the mightiest any, they were very arrogant about the power that they possessed. So it is said a while amuro and Allah Allah de halakhah home, didn't they consider the fact that Allah is the one who created them, who are shadowman whom co he is stronger than them in power. He Allah subhanaw taala his power will always be greater than yours. Always. So don't abuse the power that Allah subhanaw taala has given you and sort of the Lafayette I have 22 we learn Valley can be under whom can t him Russolo one bill by unity for careful that the previous nations what happened with them, their messengers would come to them with clear proofs. But the people denied, they rejected
they refuse to believe they were arrogant. So what happened for a home Allah, so Allah sees them meaning with punishment, in the whole away young indeed he is away, he is ever strong, ever powerful shadow copies severe in penalty. So when Allah subhanaw taala is alcovy This means that we should be humble, we should not be deceived by the power that Allah has given us. We shouldn't be arrogant, especially towards Allah subhanaw taala. And then when Allah subhanaw taala is a GUI, it means that we should not despair and you whatever weakness that we are experiencing whatever loss that we are experiencing, whatever void we now have in our lives, whatever emptiness You know, there is
In our lives, realize that you are the slave of an Mateen. You are the creature of alpha we have the one who is strong, the one who is mighty, the one who is a rezac. So don't despair. Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah to that yet I have 58 that in Allah, who were was zirkel Luca till Mati, that Indeed Allah it is he who is Allah Zack, the continual provider, and he is the CO were the possessor of strength and Mateen, the one who is firm, he is the firm possessor of strength. So why despair? Why why feel defeated? Why, what why I feel like you have nothing. You have Allah subhanaw taala and if Allah subhanaw taala is with you, then you're fine. Don't despair. When Allah soprano thought is
Alawi, it also means that we should fear him the most. When he is so powerful, that no one can escape him, that every power before him, is defeated. That it means that we should fear Allah subhanaw taala the most. This is why we're told in the Quran over and over again. Fear a lot don't fear people for that show when NASA was shoni do not fear people fear me. So why fear Allah because he's, he's the he is alcovy and fear Allah. You know, sometimes what we think is that, you know, I don't need to be afraid because Allah subhanaw taala is the strongest I trust in Allah. I you know, I expect the best from Allah. You know, he, he knows everything. He's got everything in his control.
So, you know, I, I don't need to feel weak. And that's excellent. But it also means that we should fear Allah. And yes, you don't fear people. You don't fear the world. But the fact that Allah subhanaw taala is all powerful it means that we should fear Allah, Fear Allah, meaning fear him when you're doing something wrong. fear him when you're disobeying his command. fear him the most insightful and file I have 52 or last Panther I mentioned at the state of those who you know, oppose his his messenger could that be alley fit our owner well, leadin ml cubberly him kuffaar will be it lay for a high the homeowner who be the newbie him, that what happened to the people of Quraysh is
just what happened to the people of our own and those before them, that they disbelieved in the verses of Allah. And what happened. Allah subhanaw taala sees them because of their sins, meaning he punished them because of their sins in the law of kawayan. should either cob Indeed Allah is powerful, severe in penalty. And he This is a threat and a warning that when Allah is so powerful, fear Him, fear disobeying him, because if he decides to punish you, if he decides to Allahu Akbar, if he decides to punish us for what we are doing, there is no safety. There's no getting away, there's no survival. So, when Allah is a puppy, yes, we have hope. Yes, we don't fear the creation,
but it also means that we should be humble before Allah and fear his or club fear his punishment,
when Allah subhanaw taala is alcovy It also means that we should seek strength from him, why because all power is with him, he is the giver of power, he is the giver of strength. So, whether it is strength that you need in your hands, strength that you need in your body, strength that you need in your eyes, in your ears, in your you know, your in your ability to memorize in your ability to you know, remember things in your ability to accomplish your goals, seek goolwa from Allah subhanaw taala you need people to help you you need you know supporters you need people to cooperate with you. You want you know ways or an paths to be opened up for you. Seek strength from alcovy because
it is only he who gives power insert hood I have 52 we learned were comin stove euro bekam su matobo la you will see summer r la comida Radha where does it come quwata illa COVID poetical that all my people seek forgiveness from your Lord and repent to him. He will send the sky over you abundantly meaning he will send Allah
A lot of rain on you, and He will increase you in your strength, the cooler that you already have the power that you already have. A last panel title will add to that Allah subhanaw taala increase that. So if you want your kuwa to increase, realize that increase will only come by the will of Allah. So don't seek power by disobeying Allah. Don't seek strength and power by opposing Allah. No seek that strength and power by obeying Allah by by pleasing Him by doing things the right way into an earlier one I went 160 Allah, Allah says he and sarcoma Allah who fell out lalibela calm, if Allah helps you, there is no one that can overcome you at all. Well, hello calm and if Allah
subhanaw taala abandons you, from under levy on solocom embody then who is there who could help you after him. And if Allah subhanaw taala decides to leave you and helped without any strength, then who could help you, no one could help you. So when Allah subhanaw taala is alcovy then seek COA from him azzawajal
then also when Allah subhanaw taala is away, and Allah has given us you know, some cool work, whatever whoever that may be, then use that code or use that ability, how whichever it is for the sake of Allah, in order to please Allah in order to support his Deen Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Al Hajj I have 40 well I am Soren Allah who my young sudo that Allah will definitely help the one who helps him and he the one who helps Allah, the One who helps the religion of Allah, the cause of Allah, the One who takes a step forward in the way of Allah, that Allah will definitely help that person in the law chanukkah wa Yuna Aziz Indeed, Allah is powerful, he is mighty. So use the
strength that Allah has given you, whatever little it may be, to obey Allah subhanaw taala. To do good to help the deen of Allah. And when you will do that Allah subhanaw taala will, will aid you, while I answer on Allah who may ensue.
And use the schoolwork that Allah has given you to, to worship Allah better, to obey Him better. In the inserter ibaka, we learn how to attain our cumbuco watton take what we have given you with strength, meaning hold on to the book of Allah powerfully. And this doesn't just mean that you hold on to it, you know, physically, that that physically, if you're holding the most have you hold it with strength so that it doesn't fall, it doesn't slip from your hands. Rather, what this means is that your adherence to the book of Allah, your connection with the book of Allah should be very strong. And use your strength to be a reciter of the Quran. Use your strength to be a follower of
the Quran. And strength is needed over there. So the strength the power that Allah has given you, don't just use it for worldly things. Of course, you have to use it for worldly things, but it shouldn't all be exhausted in worldly goals, use it for the worship of Allah subhanaw taala and use it for earning his approval.
When Allah subhanaw taala is alcovy and he has given us who were, then we should use that power to, you know, we should use that strength, or the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and what mineral coway you hire on what a humble in Allah human movement, or if what he call in fire, this is a Muslim, that the believer who is strong is better and more beloved to Allah than the believer who is weak. Even though in in each believer there is goodness. And each person has their own, you know,
their own worth their own, you know, place near Allah subhanaw taala their own unique gifts and talents and skills that Allah subhanaw taala has given them but the believer who is away is better and more beloved to Allah. Why? Because with that Kuma with that strength, that believer is able to do more. But Subhan Allah, what about the people who have all that cool, all that strength, all that power in their body, in their, you know, in their mental capability, but yet they don't use that to please Allah subhanaw taala any, we should truly be ashamed of ourselves if you know we have all of that strength in our bodies and we don't use that to do something beneficial for ourselves or
For others, he sometimes it's amazing how there are individuals who are overburdened. You know, with work, it could be house chores, even. And there are other people who consider themselves completely exempt, completely exempt simply because of their gender, or because of other things that they're doing. Any Why? Why do we feel ashamed to do? You know, physical work, physical labor? Why do we think that it is beneath us? Or why do we think that it is useless? When we see that the prophets of Allah Who are the best of men, they use their kuwa not to Lord over people, not to boast, you know of what they possessed? No, but to benefit people. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used his
goolwa to, to, you know, dig the trenches. Right? And before that, to build the masjid, right, people were carrying mud and the Prophet salallahu Urdu center was also carrying mud. People were digging the trenches and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was working along with them. Right? I shuttle de la Mourinho said that the prophets of Allah who earned his cinema at home, he would be in the service of his family. What does that mean? That he wouldn't just be sitting there waiting to be served by everybody? No, he would use his strength, his power to to help his family. And, and this is, you know, something that every single person needs to reflect over that what Allah has
given us that COA, why why aren't we using that? Why are we just sitting with it? And why are we expecting that other people should continue to, you know, work and, and exert themselves to a point that they either snap, or their bodies become exhausted, and they're no longer able to do anything, any, there should be some kind of, you know, equality, especially when it comes to, you know, physical work. So, be useful with the strength that Allah subhanaw taala has given you, we learn about mossadegh SLM in certain courses, i a 26, that when he reached madeon, and he saw that, you know, two ladies are trying to keep their flock away from the water. He didn't just sit there, you
know, thinking, Oh, it's, you know, their problem, whatever. No, he went up to them. And he asked them, what's the matter? How come you're not letting your animals drink? is there is there a problem over here, and the ladies told him that, you know, we don't go with our flock until the shepherds leave, when they leave, then we take our, you know, flock into the water. So mozzarella is sent out, because it was who who knows when those shepherds were going to leave. And who knows if there was going to be enough water left, for the flock of these ladies was already set up, took their flock to the water, let them drink, and then he took the flock back to the ladies. And then he didn't ask for
any wage. He didn't ask for any compensation. He just went, and he sat on, you know, in the shade. And one of the ladies she said to her father later on, yeah, but is that do who all my father hire him. Because in the higher ominous that job, telco will, I mean, the best person you can hire is the one who is karoui, who is strong, who uses his strength, and I mean, he is trustworthy, he's reliable, meaning he took the flock and he returned it to us. And he's so strong, he came all the way from Egypt to Medina, and he was exhausted, yet he managed to take our flock into the water, you know, let them drink and then he returned our flock to us, this is cool. Any, the, you know, the
evidence that a person is truly strong is not, you know, how built their body is or how frequently they go to the gym, or, you know, how much protein they you know, they consume etc. No, or how much how little fat content there is in their body know, the real, you know, evidence that a person is strong, that that a person, you know, has strength is what they do, and how they help others how they are, you know, useful with the abilities that Allah subhanaw taala has given them, we learn about use of rd his Salaam also that how he, you know, offered his services, right? To be able to manage the resources of the land because the next 15 years we're going to be very crucial. So we see
this in the prophets of Allah, that they used their kuwa to benefit themselves and to benefit others.
Here we are just boasting you know the cooler that we have the maximum we do is you know flex those muscles take a selfie posted on you know social media so that people can be impressed by the strength that we have or go to the gym and lift certain weights and you know take a you know a short video etc and posted on social media and boast any Is this what the COA is for? No the COA that Allah has given us is not so that we can show it off. Not so that we can impress people, impress men or impress women know the score that Allah subhanaw taala has given us is for us to use and the koalas Pousada has given us is both tangible and intangible. Right to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam explained that the strong one is not the one who can defeat another in a fight. The strong one is the one who is able to control his anger. So, Allah soprano, Tatas and karoui, he is the strongest he is the source of strength, he is the giver of strength. So we should be humbled before Him we should fear Him, we should be grateful for the strength that He has given us. And we should use it in ways that please Him. Now when we look at the name of coway in the Quran, it is paired with the name Allah Aziz, any many times in the Quran the name of Hawaii comes with the name Aziz Aziz is mighty. So, for example, Instituto mujaddid is 21. Allah Subhana Allah says,
Allah subhanaw taala RSS ketubot Allahu la Ollie banana. Anna, will Rosalie in the LA haka we Yuna Aziz, that Allah subhanaw taala has decreed that I will indeed overpower any that Allah subhanaw taala will prevail. Allah and His messengers, any victory, success will be for Allah and for Allah's messengers, because Indeed, Allah is away. He's Aziz, he is strong, he is mighty. So Allah is GUI meaning he is powerful. And he is Aziz meaning he's able to execute his will, so none can resist him. And then we see that the name also comes in the Quran with the shader club severe in penalty. And this is a threat, a warning, that Allah is powerful, more powerful than those who commit
oppression on earth, He is more powerful than those who disobey him than those who are arrogant before him. And he is should either top severe in penalty, meaning when he punishes them, that his punishment for them is truly severe, and they cannot survive after that.
So when Allah subhanaw taala is alcovy How is it that we can call upon him by this beautiful name by this excellent name?
Firstly, we see the Prophet sallallahu earning a Salam and he when he would make such that Tila sajida Tila is that when you're reciting, you know, certain verses of the Quran were such that as mentioned, then you also make such the right there in them. So, when he would be in such the thilawa, he would say sajer, the wedge he alella, the holla who was shot per summer who were Bizarro who be holy, he worked on what he that my face prostrates to the one who created it. I am putting my face on the ground making such that to the one who created the space.
And Shaka, some are who Shaka is to split to create an opening. So he created the opening for its hearing, its ability to hear, so that whole that we have in our ears, right? Because of which were able to, you know, receive all of the sound waves, any that that has been created by who by Allah subhanaw taala what Massara Who? And its vision, you need the vision that we have the eyes, the opening, you know of the eyes that has also been created by Allah. So worship customer who were basato How did he do that? Be holy, he will convert he by his might, and by his power. So it is with the Kuma that Allah subhanaw taala has that he that he not only created us, but He created us with
all of these abilities. So this is a way of glorifying and praising and thanking Allah subhanaw taala for the blessing that Allah has given us. Secondly, when it comes to calling upon Allah subhanaw taala by his name Alka we, meaning the one who has schoolwork, then we should frequently say it La hawla wala quwata illa Billah
meaning there is no might no power except
with Allah, Who were the uni karoui is the one who has all kuwa so every color is, is with Allah And if anyone has any color it has been given by Allah. Now the statement La hawla wala quwata illa Billah
any It seems as though we're we're only praising Allah over here and yes indeed we are praising Allah here. But this is a column of esteana meaning the statement of this is a way of seeking the help of Allah. Because when you say there is no mind or power except by Allah, you're essentially asking Allah that Allah help me. Ya Allah give me strength. All right, so this is this is a way of seeking the help of Allah. And this is a reason why we're supposed to say La hawla wala quwata illa Billah window oven says Haryana Sala Haryana, right, come to salah and come to success. Why do we say Hola, La quwata illa Billah because when the more than is saying come to Salah, then we say yes,
we will come to Salah. But we can only do that by the help and power that Allah gives. So yeah, Allah I asked you for the strength, the ability to pray to go to pray. And we also sell a hold on La quwata illa Billah as a part of the art that we make when we when we leave the house, because again when we're leaving the house, we are in need of Allah subhanaw taala is help. So this is why we we say that hola La quwata illa Billah
Now, what does it mean La hawla wala quwata illa Billah hole hole means hasakah movement and couva as you know means strength or power. So, La hawla wala quwata illa Billah means that no one can move, no one can move. And no one can exert any strength, except by the by the will of Allah or except by the tofik of Allah when Allah subhanaw taala enables them
no one can move, move as in LA hola because hola is to move. So no one can move meaning from sin to obedience, right? Or from point A to point B or to repel any evil any, anything bad that is coming their way. No one has, you know, the ability to move, okay, forward or backward or right or left, right or, or shift, you know, change their condition, repel any evil.
You know, except when Allah subhanaw taala enabled them and we'll go over any no one has the strength to worship Allah to do something good, to bring something good, you know their way to earn something good, except by the tofik, the will of Allah subhanaw taala. So basically what we're saying is all power is with Allah. I can't do anything, unless Allah enables me. I cannot be safe unless Allah subhanaw taala makes me safe. So this is why we should say La hawla wala quwata illa Allah a lot. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to one of the companions here has him, UK filmin Hola, hola, La quwata illa Billah for in the home in kuno zildjian. It is from the
treasures of paradise. So said a lot. Now, we say this as part of the Dora. When we leave the house, which is Bismillah Hito culto Allah Allah, the hola wala quwata illa Billah that In the name of Allah, I leave In the name of Allah. I put my trust in Allah and there's no mind, no power except with Allah. And these days, especially when you're leaving the house, there is a sense of fear. You know, you are healthy, you are safe inside of your house, you go outside, you're vulnerable, you're exposed to so many things you don't know what you might catch. milas partner to protect you, there is that fear. So Bismillah I leave In the name of Allah, that will come to our Allah I put my trust
in Allah, La how La La quwata illa Billah there is no ability to repel any evil or to bring anything good except by Allah by the tofield Kabbalah. So when a person says this when they're leaving the house, it is said who did our coffeetable will kita that you have been guided, you have been defended, and you have been protected. Allahu Akbar. So this is your protection, this is your safety. Also, we learn
that in the night, in a hadith we learned this is a hadith and Buhari that whoever wakes up in the night and says La ilaha illAllah hula hula sharika lahu mool Kula who will hand well who are other cliche in Kadir Alhamdulillah, WA Subhana Allah wa la ilaha illAllah
Walla, Walla, Hola, La quwata illa Billah
all of these upcard if a person says them, then then he says, Allahumma fiddly. Oh ALLAH forgive me, or he makes a DA, right he asks a las pangallo for something. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said was the Jeeva he will be responded, and he, Allah will answer him, and if he makes will do, and prays that his Salah will be accepted. So even in the night, you know, when you wake up, then, you know, make Vicar of Allah and especially c'est la holo and our quwata illa Billah. And then also, after eating, and on wearing clothes in her day, sweeter and dessert, even a Buddha would, that whoever eats some food, and then he says Alhamdulillah, he led the Adorama and he had a
bomb was accompany him in rady holy mini welaka that all praise to the one who fed me this food and gave me food gave me sustenance from the or through no mite, or power of mine, or on my part, meaning this was all by the power of Allah subhanaw taala that if I that I was able to eat this food, Allahu Akbar, this is by the power of Allah. And, and truly, this is something worth reflecting over. Because you know, the food that we're eating, sometimes that food, you know, in one bowl is food in a combination of different foods that have come from so many, you know, different parts of the world. When you think about the spices, where did they come from? Which part of Africa
or which part of India, right? Think about the oil? Which part of South America did that come from? Think about the vegetables? Right? Which part of the world did they come from? Think about the lentils, think about the meat. Honey, where where did that come from? So did you have the power of your own? To bring all of that food to yourself? No. Did you have the strength to, you know, put all of that together? No, if you were able to purchase it. And if you were able to, you know, prepare it and if you were able to put it in your dish, this was by the ability that Allah subhanaw taala put in you when Allah subhanaw taala enabled you.
And then the fact that you're able to eat the food, any the fact that you're able to lift up the food to your mouth. He said panela any of a person's hand is hurt, they're not able to feed themselves. If a person does not have the strength to walk up to the, you know, to their kitchen, and open the refrigerator and take the food out and heat it up. How can they eat it? You need the strength that you have to even feed yourself that strength you have because of Allah soprano dog, and then the strength, the ability to chew, to chew the food, the ability to swallow the food, the ability to digest the food, any all of that is a gift, a blessing from Allah. So whoever says this,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Littlefield Allah will matter at the moment zombie will matter. Aha, all his sins will be forgiven. So panela every time you eat, you have an opportunity to earn forgiveness. When you say this, Dora Alhamdulillah Hilary Armani had a bomb was a con II mean lady holy mini Wanaka
and then also a similar girl. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever wears a garment, or whoever puts on some clothes, and says Alhamdulillah Hilary cassani had a Thurber, what are the Kony human lady holy mini Wanaka that all praise to Allah, Who clothed me with this cloth and provided me from, you know, through
through no might or power on my part. And the same thing with our clothes. Any Where did that cotton come from? Where did that silk come from? Which part of you know, China or Africa or, you know, Australia? Or what part of the world? And where was that harvested? And where was the yarn produced? And then where was the material produced? And where was it stitched? And how did it reach your continent? And how did it reach your country and know your city and the story that you got it from, and then the ability to purchase it the ability to find something that fits you? Well, you know, find something that is comfortable on your body that looks good on you. And the fact that you're
able to change
You're close yourself any Oh? How did you have that power? How did you have that ability? How did you have that might? Is this your own? No, this is because of the COA that Allah subhanaw taala gave you and the risk that he brought to you. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Whoever says this on wearing clothes, then again love your Allah who matter condominium be that all of his sins will be forgiven the last panel tada forgive us also, very quickly, I would like to go over the next name and then inshallah we will conclude. And the next name is Alma teen, it's very similar to unquie and Mateen, the one who is firm, and this name of allah occurs once in the Quran, where Allah
subhanaw taala says, and sort of that yet I have 58 in Allah who are was zirkel, the rucola Timothy, that Indeed Allah is the continual provider, the firm possessor of strength. Now, an Mateen is the is the one who has mutton and mutton is, is explained as a, you know, the heart or the outer part of something.
And it's also used for the back of an animal, or it's also used for ropes that hold attempt. So you're thinking about, you know, a solid structure or, or something, you know, like the spine, or the ropes, you know, that, that hold something together, right, and the ropes have to be really strong, the back of an animal, you know, it's, it's got to be really firm and strong. So you're talking about the strongest part of something, which is why the word mutton is also used for the middle of a boat, because that's where you, you know, where you're holding it from, and it has to be really firm, because if it's not strong, if it snaps, then that boy is useless.
So Mateen is something that is firm in its strength, and he not just powerful, but the power is is very firm, it is very stable. And Mateen is also someone who possesses you know, their whatever quality they have to to an utmost degree, right or the strongest degree. So Mateen is what is firming strength and possesses any quality to the strongest degree. So when Allah subhanaw taala is El Mateen. What does that mean? El Mateen is the one who is intense, who is shrouded in his power. And what was that he said? That matana shows that Allah subhanaw taala does what is shaded and it is very intense, it is very strong, it is very mighty, it is unconquerable, any no one can conquer it,
no one can defeat it, no one can weaken it. And when Allah subhanaw taala is an Mateen that's all also shows us that Allah subhanaw taala his power is such that it does not end it does not become weak, and it is not affected by fatigue. Nor is it that something becomes too burdensome. Allah kebab and we learn in the Quran, how Allah subhanaw taala created the heavens and the earth what am Uriah because he did not get tired, right by creating them he did not he did not get fatigued in ayatul kursi while a year old who have Luma guarding preserving the skies in the earth does not tire him. Alright, so Allah subhanaw taala he is an Mateen and he is the strongest he is the firmest any
no matter how powerful you think Allah is, he is even more powerful than that, his strength, his his power is stable. So, so the passage of time, and what he does, does not weaken him. And whatever qualities that Allah subhanaw taala possesses, whether it is the ability to create, or the fact that he knows everything, the fact that he hears everything, all of his abilities, all of his qualities are of the strongest degree. And this is why two times in the Quran we learn in total column, I have 45 and in circle aarav I have 183 will only left home in the Kadeem a team that my plot is very firm. And even when Allah subhanaw taala it makes a plan in order to punish those who are deserving
of that punishment, then that that plan is very firm. So no one can escape it. No one can you know change it, no one can can avoid it. So when Allah subhanaw taala is an Mateen
means that we should realize that we are weak before Allah. And we, we suffer from weakness because we are the creation right and when we are, you know experiencing any weakness then we should place our expectations in Allah subhanaw taala who is ulma team, when we place our expectations in people who are not, you know firm and stable in their strength, then we get disappointed. You know, what happens with people is that their strength, it is is temporary, it is not absolute. They suffer from weakness, from fatigue from decline. And this is why it would be foolish to place our expectations and people Place your expectations in Allah subhanaw taala and when you are weak, when you are
feeling weak realize that your Lord is an Mateen so don't be afraid because remind yourself that I am Ogden Mateen or I am Emma Toma teen I am the slave of Elma teen. I am the slave of the one who is firm and strong who does not become weak and when a lie is ultra thin yet he is so kind
to his slaves, then we should also be kind to the slaves of Allah and not become you know arrogant by the little power that Allah subhanaw taala has given us the last panel Tata give us the ability to remember him and and place our trust in Him and expect the best from him. inshallah we will conclude over here subchronic Allahumma will be handed a shadow Allah ilaha illa Anta astell Furukawa autoboot Lake wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
