Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:36--> 00:00:56

Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim rubbish Rahi sodbury were Siddeley MD, Washington iraq data melissani yufka, who Cali Allahumma de Calvi was sadly Sani was through Sufi Mater, Colby Armenia, robola alameen

00:00:58--> 00:01:53

Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah, all praise and thanks to Allah, the Exalted, who has given us another opportunity to learn about his names, to learn about his most beautiful, most excellent names and attributes. Because remember, that there is a huge difference between people who know Allah and people who do not know Allah, to know Allah, to know Allah subhanaw taala His names, to know his attributes, is to worship Him, is to love him. And it is also to know and understand oneself, our understanding of ourselves, our understandings of ourselves in this life, you know, our journey through this life, our experiences, our facing, you know, different trials, you know, different

00:01:54--> 00:02:49

tests in this life is not possible without knowing why we are here without knowing who has created us, and who is the one who is providing us and who is the one who sent us here and who is the one that we have to return to. So, to learn the names of Allah subhanaw taala is to essentially to learn about oneself. Because when you learn about who Allah is, you understand what you're supposed to be doing. You understand why, you know, whatever is happening is actually happening to you, and also in this life. So, learning the names of Allah subhanaw taala is actually something essential for our hearts for our Amen. For our you know, mental spiritual well being so Alhamdulillah This is truly a

00:02:49--> 00:03:04

gift from Allah that we're getting this opportunity to learn the names of Allah subhanaw taala and our previous classes of hamdulillah. We've covered several names of Allah and today inshallah We will begin with the names are here and

00:03:07--> 00:04:01

now the names of Allah, Allah His alcohol, both of them are similar. And Allah hit occurs two times in the Quran and the name of Allah. Alcohol occurs six times in the Quran, in Surah, Al anon Ayah number 18. Allah subhanaw taala says, will who will call Hebrew folk or anybody that he is the subject Gator over his servants, he is the one who subjugates his slaves into the Lord I am number 16 Allah subhanaw taala says Cooley Law who Holly kukuli Shea say that Allah is the one who has created everything. Well, who will walk you through the hall and he is the one alcohol he is the subject Gator, meaning he is the one whom the creation cannot resist, they cannot escape they cannot

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

do without. So the names of Allah Allahu Allah Ha. Both of them are derived from the verb or gohara and carroca. Harun basically gives us three connotations. And what are these connotations? The first connotation is that a hunt gives the meaning of a sedara and lava, which is basically to dominate over something, to overcome, to conquer, to subdue, to subject something. Secondly, the herd also gives the meaning of Oulu meaning to have superiority over something or someone meaning if one has power over someone, it means that they're superior to another in terms of power in terms of force, etc. And thirdly, God also gives the meaning of an menfolk meaning

00:05:00--> 00:05:54

To seize from above, meaning to have full control authority over someone and to seize them from above, so they cannot escape at all. So this is why the word God is also understood as to oppress someone, because when someone is oppressing another, it means that the other has has no way to you know save themselves to defend themselves or to to get away. And this is why in the Quran were told for Amalia tema, Fela dako hell same route, that as for the orphan, then do not oppress him by for example, taking his property, etc. So, I here is the one who overcomes the one who conquers the one who subdues an aha gives the same meaning but in a more intensive sense, because a ha remember this

00:05:54--> 00:06:51

is foreign, meaning it's what it's the strongest noun that is available in the Arabic language. So it signifies intensity, and it also signifies great number. So, our his or her, these are Names of Allah subhanaw taala. Now when Allah subhanaw taala is Allahu Allah What does that mean? With regard to Allah azza wa jal, it means that first of all, Allah subhanaw taala has absolute, complete and total, her meaning dominance over his servants. And he even though the the creatures are so many, and the creatures are so different, and all over the world and beyond this world, Allah subhanaw taala has complete power over them. He has complete dominance over them, which means that no one can

00:06:51--> 00:07:45

escape him. This means that Allah subhanaw taala knows every single creature, he knows exactly where every creature is, he knows exactly what every creature is doing. And Allah subhanaw taala has full authority over every creature as well. So no creature can escape Allah, neither in knowledge nor by getting away. In surah Yunus Allah Spanish Allah says Wilma Yara Zubov Rebecca mimis Ali them worked in film early one after summer, that even the weight you know something the weight of an atom, something so tiny, it cannot escape Allah, Yanni, it cannot be too distant from Allah in the sense that it cannot be out of sight. It cannot get away. It cannot slip away from Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:45--> 00:08:38

even if it is something so tiny, whether it is in the sky, or it is somewhere in the earth, one of us a lot, I'm in valic, even something smaller than the weight of an atom. Well, a cabal, even something greater than the weight of an atom, meaning there is nothing that is that exists that can escape Allah because Allah has full, full dominance over it. In sort of the Lord is number 16. Allah subhanaw taala says Cooley Law who Holly kukuli Shay will who will Wahidullah Aha, that say that Allah is the Creator of everything and he is a lower head, the one alcohol The one who prevails? The one who has absolute dominance over his creation. So this means that everything is directly

00:08:38--> 00:08:49

subjected to Allah's power and will this means that the existence of the creation depends on who it depends entirely on Allah soprano tada

00:08:50--> 00:09:40

ignore play Rahim. Allah says that work available to Holloman Oh Sophie, that Bahamas is from his attributes. And and then he mentions that lo lumea con Haryana Aziz and cadila mecanim in our in Walla Soltani that if there was no, you know, Hey, no being who is ever living, who is mighty, who is all powerful, then you need that there there would be nothing to rule over in the sense that the fact that there is existence that there is creation, it means that there is a creator, who is who is subjugating them, who has created them, and who has complete knowledge of them who, who is who has complete dominance over them.

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

So, first of all, with regard to Allah subhanaw taala. These names mean that Allah has full dominance over his creation. So this means that his creation depends on him. He He knows them, and he and he takes care of them and he has focus

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

Control and authority over them and all of their affairs. Secondly, when Allah subhanaw taala is a liar alcohol This means that he is the one who, who, who prevailed with his command, meaning he is the one who executes His will. Whatever that he wants to do, he is able to do it and no one can resist his command. No one can get away from his decree, in Surah, Al anon 18. Allah says, We're who will call hero phone or anybody, that he is the subject Gator above his slaves, meaning whatever that he wants to do with his slaves, whatever that he decrees, he is able to execute his command, he is hollyburn Allah and he, you have a property rights that this means that he is the one who

00:10:55--> 00:11:46

prevails over everything. So he decrees whatever he wishes, for whatever he wishes, so he gives life to his creation when he wants and he gives death when he wants. So nothing at all can overpower Him, He is such that nothing can defeat him, nothing can overpower him, nothing can prevail over him, when he decides to do something, then there is nothing that can prevent him. And along with that, Allah subhanaw taala is alcohol such that law use allama for other whom use alone, he is not going to be asked about what he does, it is the creation that will be asked about what they do. No one can question Allah subhanaw taala with regard to what he

00:11:47--> 00:12:43

you know, he does or he decrees and this is not just because who can dare to question him. And even if they were to question him, then then what could they do? right because Allah subhanaw taala has absolute authority. He has absolute power, over his creation, but also because whatever that he decides, whatever that he does, whatever that he decrees is with his mercy, his knowledge, his wisdom, he is our hammer raw, he mean, He is the Most Merciful of those who show mercy, he is a common hacky mean. So, so why would he be questioned about what he does? So, he is a heart meaning, he, he, he carries out his will, and no one can dare to question him and no one has any reason to

00:12:43--> 00:13:42

question him. So, so, he is the one who absolutely prevails. Thirdly, when Allah subhanaw taala is a liar alcohol, it means that he has absolute and complete superiority over his creation, meaning the entire creation is below him. So, this means that there is nothing like him, nothing at all, he has a new willpower alkalete and mukluk been in complete an absolute superiority over his his creation and total energy arm I 18 we learn what we will call hero foe per a body, that he is a subject Gator over his slaves. So this means that there is no one like him, right and everyone is is below him. shackles are the rights that every creature is such that above it is another creature right. So for

00:13:42--> 00:14:25

example, if you think about it, in terms of people, you know, people have power, but over them there are those who have greater power, right and over them, you know are those who have greater power, you can see this in any organization, in any group of people, you can see this in any community, even a family, right, there are those who have you know, greater power over others. And this is not just in terms of power, but also in terms of strength, for example, physical strength, right. So, there is no creature except that, that above it is another creature, right, who is more powerful, more strong than it, but above all, is who and

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

above all is who Aloha and there is no one that is like him. This is why the attribute of her goes hand in hand with with with the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala with his co head. And this is why we see in the Quran that every time the name alcohol is mentioned, it is actually mentioned with a Luma hit the one because if there was another one another being who was like Allah that

00:15:00--> 00:15:13

He would not be right. Why? Because a heart is the one who, who has who is above everyone who has subjugated everyone who is who has iRULU over everyone.

00:15:14--> 00:16:11

Then fourthly, when Allah subhanaw taala is a liar alcohol. This means that that everyone is is submissive before him, okay? Meaning even if someone rebels and someone is disobedient, Allah subhanaw taala still prevails over them. So we see for example, how fit our own, tried to rebel and, and so many people try to rebel against Allah subhanaw taala. But what happened to them, every single one of them was defeated, right? So the fact is that Allah subhanaw taala prevails over everyone. So those who rebel, Allah subhana wa tada seizes them, he punishes them. And, and even if you know someone is given some time in this life to do what they want, they have some freedom.

00:16:11--> 00:17:05

Eventually, Allah subhanaw taala causes them to die. And therefore Allah subhanaw taala is the one who prevails over everyone. So he is the one who held our tiller who repub. He is the one whom before before whom all next are lowered, are submissive, meaning everyone is power less before Allah soprano Turner, then when Allah soprano thought is Allahu Allah ha This also means that he is the sub Dewar of false arguments. And he when people come up with false arguments and excuses to, you know, to associate partner with, you know, partners with Allah, or to not worship Allah, or to not believe in Him, etc, then all such arguments and excuses Allah subhanaw taala has defeated them how,

00:17:05--> 00:18:03

by showing and revealing irrefutable proofs, he has revealed. I add in the Quran, and he has also shown He has also created ayat in his creation, that completely refute the false arguments of such people. So he is the subject of false arguments. Then number six, when Allah subhanaw taala is acquired alcohol, it also means that he is the Disposer of his creatures as he pleases, and he can do with his creatures, whatsoever that he wants. Sometimes the creatures are in agreement, any if they are okay, that they willingly comply. And there are those times when the creatures do not willingly comply, but still, they have no option, right, because he is the Disposer of his creatures

00:18:03--> 00:18:48

as he pleases with their will and also against their will. As we learned in the Quran, Wella who are slimmer, manifest, some are worth he will, or the third one will come her and to him has surrendered, whoever that is in the skies and whoever that is in the earth, willingly and by compulsion. So, for example, a person does not want to die, but when the moment of death comes, even if they resist, even if they're unhappy, even if they don't want to, they have to leave this world, a person does not want to be in a certain situation, but if that is the will of Allah, than whether a person cries or a person whines or a person, you know, happily accepts, then regardless, Allah

00:18:48--> 00:19:48

subhanaw taala is will regarding that, that that person prevails. So Allah subhanaw taala is a lie of alcohol, the one who prevails and is never prevailed over. Yet, Allah subhanaw taala has not compelled us to worship him or obey Him in the sense that he has not forced us. He has given us free will. But that doesn't mean that he does not have power over us. He has power over us and he can force us to believe if he wants as we learn in the Quran. in several places, for example, instead of Eunice I and number 99 that will OSHA or buka la Amana man Phil Ali Kaluga Mira, that if your Lord wanted, all of them, who are on the earth would have believed every single one every single person

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

would have believed if Allah subhanaw taala wanted meaning. Allah subhanaw taala can force people to do that. But he has given them free will. Why? As a test, Leah blue

00:20:00--> 00:20:50

Welcome Yukon arson Ramallah Alright, so while we have the freedom to choose, while we have the freedom to do you know what we want, we should not get deceived by it, we should not be deluded by it. Why? Because first of all, we see that even though Allah subhanaw taala has given us free will, he shows us that he is the one who is in control. We are not the ones who are in control. It is Allah subhanaw taala who is in complete control. So, for example, you have a headache, you take a Tylenol, you take pain medication, the pain doesn't go away. Do you have control over you? Don't you think you have but you actually don't. So, when it comes to, you know, for example, our own bodies

00:20:50--> 00:21:43

even we don't have control over them. If Allah subhanaw taala decrees that we should fall ill that we should face a certain trial. There's no avoiding it. There's no getting away from it. And this is very clearly illustrated in sootel anon verses 17 and 18. where Allah subhanaw taala says we're em seska Allah who would be loaded in Fela, Kashi fella who Illa who, that if Allah were to touch you with some harm, then there is no one that can remove it except Allah, what am seska be hiding, for who are on aqualisa in cloudy, and if Allah subhanaw taala touches you with some good meaning he gives you a little bit of good, then he is Able to do all things. The next verse says, What who will

00:21:43--> 00:22:23

call Hebrew folk or a body and he is the subjugate are over his slaves were who will Hakeem will hobbies and he is the wise the be ever acquainted fully aware. So, he we might feel that we have control over you know, our our lives, we are able to do whatever that we want. But in these lives of ours, Allah subhanaw taala shows us over and over again, that you're not completely free, you are not your own master, you are actually a slave, who belongs to alcohol, alcohol.

00:22:25--> 00:23:18

Then we see that even if we have you know, free will over here, we know that no human can can live on in this world forever. Right? Every single person dies in the coma uten indeed you are going to die even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is told right death is called Alia, pain, certainty why because it is the most certain fact of our lives that we are going to die. And when death comes then that's it. A person has no control, no freedom, nothing whatsoever. And this also is illustrated in sudo NRM is 6162 where Allah subhanaw taala says well, who will call Hebrew folk everybody, but he is the subjugate are over his slaves were euro silver Alaykum halfa Latin, and

00:23:18--> 00:23:49

Allah subhanaw taala sends on you, guardian angels have either had a common mode or were for todo su Luna or hula in for real too, until when the time of death comes Our Messengers meaning the angels, they take the soul, right and the end they do not fall short in their duty at all. And then so Maru do it Allah himolla who will help and then people are returned to their true molar to their true you know,

00:23:50--> 00:24:27

God or or protector or, or owner, right. And Allah Allah who will help me who all has to be. So, even though we have you know, some freedom over here, this freedom is not going to last forever. Allah subhanaw taala shows us by by giving us death by making us witness death by making us experienced death that that we we are not our own masters, that that we are not free. There is someone else who has full authority over us and that is Allah and pothead alcohol

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

and then remember the day of judgment is also coming. And that is the day when everyone will be subdued before Allah subhanaw taala everyone. So instead of the waffle is 16 we learn yoma homebodies Zun la yafa or the LA human home shake, that that is the day when all people will be exposed and nothing of theirs will be hidden from Allah. And it will be said Lehman ill muncul young to whom the

00:25:00--> 00:25:54

sovereignty belong to this day and it will be said lilla Hill Wahidullah. Haha it only belongs to Allah, the One alcohol, the subject hater. Any there is no person, you know who can say, Well, I'm the king. No, your kingdom has gone Halekulani. So Tanya, right? Your your power, your your, your status, all of that is irrelevant on the Day of Judgment. Instead of Ibrahim I have 48 we learned yoma too, but the rule arboviral early was some Allah, that that is the day when the earth will be completely changed. And the sky is also we're Baba zula helwa hydro kaha and all of them meaning all people will appear before Allah who is Allah had the one alcohol or the subjugate or of his

00:25:54--> 00:26:08

creatures. So no one, can you No, no, no one has authority that day, all authority, all power belongs to Allah exalted on that day. So Allah is alive and for her.

00:26:10--> 00:26:59

Now we see that the name alcohol as I mentioned earlier, it occurs in the Quran six times and every single time it comes with the name Allah head, right on our head. And the reason as I mentioned earlier is because alcohol is the one who has absolute authority, complete control over everyone else, right is the creation. So if he is alcohol, that means that he must be one, he must be single. Why? Because if there was another one like him, then that would cancel out his being for harm. Right? Because if there is another one like him, that means that he doesn't have authority over everyone. So we see that this is actually an evidence of the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala the

00:26:59--> 00:27:53

fact that he is alcohol means that he is one. Insert use of i a 39, we learned the use of Ra Sena. He asked the two men who were in the prison with him that y'all Sahiba You said you need our barebone motor for recon. Hi, Ron, are multiple Gods different gods better? Any Gods with, you know, with with different and limited abilities? Right? Are they better? I'm in level we're headed kaha? Or is Allah better? Who is Allah had the one Allah have the subject of all meaning the one who has all power? When you believe in multiple Gods you are saying that you know one God has one power and not another? Another God has another power not a different one? Right? divided Gods divided you

00:27:53--> 00:28:18

know, objects of worship, right? What does that mean? That they're imperfect, they don't have absolute power. Allah subhanaw taala is one which means that he has absolute power, absolute control, absolute authority, and everything and everyone is under him controlled by him. Right and and and and and below him.

00:28:20--> 00:29:06

We also learn instead of Zoomer I have for Allah pantherella mentions his oneness, and he says lo Allah Allahu Enya, tequila Wellington, luster family, Maya Lupu Maya, that if Allah subhanaw taala wanted to take a child he would have chosen from his creation whatever that he wanted super Hannah who Glory be to Him who Allahu Ahad haha. That's not possible because He is Allah, He is one he is a subjugate or of all so there is no one like him. And then in sort of sod is 65 Allah, Allah says pull in nama and Amman, Zed, that say oh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that I am only a warner, you make it clear to people that my job is to just warn you, and who is supposed to be

00:29:06--> 00:29:17

worshiped woman? ilaha IL Allah and there is no god worthy of worship except Allah. And who is Allah? Allah head, the one alcohol, the subject Gator of all.

00:29:18--> 00:29:59

So when Allah subhanaw taala is acquired alcohol, what are we supposed to do? Right? Because remember, that when Allah subhanaw taala informs us about himself, then this has a direct impact on us, if we are His creatures, if we are His slaves, his worshipers and Allah subhanaw taala you know has certain attributes, then then what are we supposed to do? How are we supposed to worship Him? What changes are we supposed to bring within ourselves what befits us and what does not befit us? So first of all, when Allah subhanaw taala is on

00:30:00--> 00:30:54

I had alcohol This means that we should believe that everything is subdued before Allah, we should believe with conviction, that there is nothing that is mightier, that is more powerful, that is more knowledgeable than Allah subhanaw taala nothing at all. He is the one who has full power, complete authority, absolute control over every creature, no matter how mighty that creature may be, no matter how strong it may be, no matter how powerful it may be, no matter how knowledgeable someone may be, Allah subhanaw taala his knowledge is absolute, no matter how, you know, powerful one, maybe Allah subhanaw taala is more powerful, he is a hothead, he is alcohol. So this means that we should

00:30:54--> 00:31:46

we, you know, our greatest fear should be who have Allah subhanaw taala we should fear him the most, we should love him the most, we should be in awe of him the most, we should have, you know, expectations of him the most. And we should strive to please him the most. Because if we were to please people, by displeasing Our Lord, then then that would be you know, such a loss. Because, you know, the, you know, certain people might be happy with with us today. But then tomorrow, what's going to happen when those people are going to lose all their power, and we will be standing before Allah, Allah had alcohol. So believe that everything is powerless before Allah subhanaw taala which

00:31:46--> 00:32:48

means that we should give Allah subhanaw taala the most important in our lives. Secondly, when Allah subhanaw taala is alcohol, alcohol, then what should we do? We should accept the word of Allah, meaning do not, do not resist the commands of Allah, do not try to get away from the decree of Allah, there is no running away from Allah, there is no getting away from him, there is no escaping him. The only way of success of salvation is to surrender to Allah. Because there is no place of safety, there is no escape from Allah except to Allah. There is no safety except with Allah. So no matter how difficult something may be accepted, right, that Allah, you have commanded this, yes, I

00:32:48--> 00:33:04

find it hard, but I accept it. Because if we don't accept it, now, there's no running away, we have to return to Allah, we have to stand before Him, we have to, you know, we are going to be questioned by him.

00:33:05--> 00:33:52

So accept Allah subhanaw taala, his dominance his authority over us, and he accept the fact that Allah is the master, we are the slaves, that Allah is the one who commands and we are the ones who obey. Allah is the one who decrees and we are the ones who surrender, we submit. So there's absolutely no use in trying to run away from Allah. So you see, sometimes what happens is that a person, you know, has this feeling of guilt in their heart that you know what I should pray properly. Right? Or, you know, that there is that feeling in the heart that I'm not speaking appropriately, right or that I'm not dressed appropriately. I should not be here I should not be

00:33:52--> 00:34:41

watching this. I should not be listening to this kind of person tries to ignore that voice. Don't ignore it. Because Who who are you trying to ignore them? You are basically trying to live your life as if Allah is not there, stuff that a lot. And the thing is that we could try to forget about all of these things. But Allah subhanaw taala has enumerated he has recorded all of our deeds, or saw the loved one asou they forgot all their deeds, but Allah subhanaw taala had it all enumerated unless Pousada had all of their deeds recorded. So, except Allah subhanaw taala has his decree His commands and surrender to Him. Accept your weakness before Allah subhanaw taala accept your

00:34:41--> 00:34:51

dependency on Allah subhana wa tada and and surrender to Him willingly, happily surrender to Him because we have no other choice.

00:34:52--> 00:35:00

Thirdly, when Allah subhanaw taala is acquired alcohol it means that we should humble ourselves before Allah

00:35:00--> 00:35:54

That is what befits us. Right? That Allah is the one who has complete authority over us, right? He has, he could he has complete rule over us and we are the ones who surrender before him. So we should show that humility. Don't just say that Yeah, I know or that I believe in that, but express it. Express your humility before Allah, how, by praying Salah, by making rocor by making such the by making Dora by crying before Allah by, you know expressing your needs before Allah by admitting your mistakes by apologizing by seeking forgiveness by turning back to him by remembering him. Right? through all of these ways, what are we doing? We are showing that we are humble before Allah

00:35:54--> 00:35:55

subhanaw taala

00:35:56--> 00:36:51

then when Allah subhanaw taala is acquired alcohol it means that we should not commit oppression. Right? Why? Because if we, you know, have the power to oppress someone, we should remember that Allah subhanaw taala is above us. And it doesn't befit us, to compel people to force people or to, you know, to try to dominate them, and abuse them and take advantage of them. It doesn't defeat us at all. Because this would be because this is tyranny. Right? And this is arrogance. And and this is foolishness, because we know where we are, you know, compelling people to do something, which is not right, then then, you know, we're basically forgetting that Allah subhanaw taala is above us. So, we

00:36:51--> 00:37:32

are told in the Quran for Amalia tema, fanatical as for the orphan do not oppress him, you see, an orphan is who a child or a child whose father is not there, to defend him to advocate for him to provide for him. So, an orphan is very easy to abuse to exploit to neglect to take advantage of. So, even if you are in a position, where you have so much power, and another person before you is completely powerless, even in a situation like that, do not commit oppression, do not take advantage, because Allah subhanaw taala is above you.

00:37:33--> 00:38:23

And then when Allah subhanaw taala is alcohol, alcohol, then we should not get deceived by you know, the the freedom of freewill that Allah subhanaw taala has given us because it is temporary, right, we learned that for our own, he was truly deceived by the power that Allah subhanaw taala had given him right. And he said that our own said that we will, you know kill the boys of Bani Israel and we will keep their their women alive. And he said what in a phone call home call He ruined that we are subjugated is over Bani Israel he we have full power over them, we have complete authority over them we can do whatever we want, and they cannot resist they cannot run away This is what fit our own

00:38:23--> 00:38:32

thought right. And this is why he committed the oppression that he committed, but then what happened eventually he drowned right

00:38:33--> 00:39:07

the you know his his entire you know civilization crumbled finished. So, we should remember that whatever authority power loss panel data has given us whether it is over our children or you know, you know people who work under us in any capacity in any capacity, if Allah subhanaw taala has given us some kind of superiority over others, then that superiority is temporary and it is a test for us. So let us not get deceived by it.

00:39:09--> 00:39:53

Now when Allah subhanaw taala is a light alcohol How is it that we can call upon him because remember, we are told in the Quran that will allow you a smell Hausner for the rule will be the to Allah belong the most excellent name. So, call upon Allah by those names, worship Allah subhanaw taala by those names and remember that when it comes to making dua to Allah by his names, this doesn't just mean that you you know say a certain Name of Allah 100,000 times because this is what you know, typically people think that you know, you have a problem and you mentioned the name of Allah or luckily for example, 100,000 times 50,000 times, right, this is what we think draw is okay.

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

calling upon Allah subhanaw taala by his names remember, draw is of different kinds.

00:40:00--> 00:40:07

One type of da is da rubaga meaning to worship Allah, right?

00:40:08--> 00:40:58

through those names, and how would that be that given the meanings and implications of a certain name, we bring about the necessary changes in our lives. So for example, we just discussed that if Allah subhanaw taala is the one who subjugates his creatures, then what are we supposed to do? We are supposed to be humble before him, we are supposed to believe that he is the greatest we are supposed to accept, you know, his commands and decrees, right? These are the necessary changes that we bring in our lives. But then there's another type of da which is da massala which is to ask Allah subhanaw taala to ask him for something, right? And while you're asking him You mentioned the names

00:40:58--> 00:41:58

right. And why because those names are related to you know, the to the matter that you are asking him about, okay. So, for example, Allah subhanaw taala is alfetta right? The one who, who opens you know, matters that are closed upon His servants, right? Or Or you know, something that is that is closed on you something that you find difficult, you ask Allah subhanaw taala and Fatah that Allah my family of web automatic, right that Allah open for me the gates of your mercy, the doors of your mercy, right so when Allah subhanaw taala is a is an is alcohol Haha, how can we make Dora to him? What kind of Dora Can we make that incorporates this name? And remember that

00:42:00--> 00:42:52

you know, da massala calling upon Allah subhanaw taala through his names, that is also of two kinds, okay? One is that you're literally asking for something, okay? So for example, Allah opened up for me the doors of your mercy, or Allah grant me knowledge right? Or Allah, you know, you are unwell Have you are the one who bestows you know, gifts upon his slaves. So you bestow, you know, your mercy on me, etc, etc. But then there is another way, which is that you simply glorify and praise Allah, right by mentioning his name. Okay? So for example, when you're in real core, you're humbling yourself before Allah uses Subhan Allah be Allah leam. You mentioned the name olara leam, that Allah

00:42:52--> 00:43:42

subhanaw taala is great. Right? You are humbling yourself and you were mentioning the greatness of Allah, you're praising him by mentioning his greatness. When you are in such a you have completely lowered yourself brought yourself down. He says upon on a bill, Allah, my lord is the highest, right? And Allah is one of the names of Allah. So you praise Allah subhanaw taala you glorify Him by mentioning his names, right? So when it comes to the name, alcohol, alcohol, we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Glorified Allah, right, praised Allah by mentioning the name alcohol. When did he do that? Especially we learn in the holidays, this is reported in unhackme that when the

00:43:42--> 00:44:14

Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam walk in the night, right? And especially, you know, the word that is used signifies waking up in the night because of thirst, okay? And he turned his sight. And this is something that happens when you're thirsty, when you're tired, you're hungry, you're worried then you're constantly tossing and turning in the night, right? Your sleep is kind of restless, and and you're kind of half awake, sometimes fully awake. So in a situation like this, okay.

00:44:15--> 00:44:25

He would say la ilaha illa Allah who were hadal Taha Rob Busan awatea will utterly will not be no Homer, Allah xizhou of

00:44:26--> 00:44:59

and this means La ilaha illAllah hula heydo Taha, there is none worthy of worship of Allah, Who is unwell had the one alcohol the victorious or the subject Gator of his slaves. Allah bousema worth he will have they will not be no Homer, Lord of the Skies in the earth and all that is between them and our Azizullah far. He is the mighty, the forgiving. So notice how you know in the night on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam turned aside while sleeping in he he he said this

00:45:00--> 00:45:56

He Glorified Allah by taking this name Aloha. Because if you think about it, if Allah subhanaw taala does not allow us to sleep, right? We cannot sleep, if Allah subhanaw taala, you know, decides that that there should be certain, you know, challenges that we're facing in our lives that are keeping us awake in the night, then again, we have no choice, right? So, mentioned the name alcohol in your Dora, when you feel defeated, when you feel powerless, right, when you feel weak, when you find yourself in capable of of doing you know that which is beyond your capacity, because, yes, we are weak, but Allah subhanaw taala he has complete power, we might be unable to do certain things but

00:45:56--> 00:46:18

Allah subhanaw taala he is on a coalition in Cardiff. So the one who believes in alcohol, the one who trusts in alcohol, the one who receives the help of alcohol, then such a person is not weak, then such a person is not defeated. And so we should call upon Allah subhanaw taala by these beautiful names Allah here and alcohol.

00:46:19--> 00:46:23

Now the next name that we will be looking at today inshallah is the name above

00:46:25--> 00:46:55

the name of Allah Alban occurs once in the Quran, only one time into the tube, I am number 28 where our last panel Tara says regarding the people of Paradise, that as they will be talking amongst themselves, they will say in now Poonam in Kabul una de Rue who in the who who will Barbara Rahim that indeed we used to call upon him before indeed he is above

00:46:56--> 00:47:00

a Rahim he is the ever kind be ever Merciful.

00:47:01--> 00:47:12

So album occurs once in the Quran and the name album. This is isn't Farrell. So, it gives the meaning of one who is

00:47:13--> 00:47:38

the who is attributed with bid Okay, Albarn is the one who is attributed with an bid. Now, what is a bid with has several connotations in the Arabic language, the first connotation of this word is bid is goodness and kindness, okay, it gives the meaning of the Western fear a little height

00:47:40--> 00:48:40

vastness in in the doing of of good things. So, basically bid refers to every form of charity every form of kindness, every form of generosity. So, it includes for example, goodness towards one's parents, goodness towards one's relatives, you know, forgiving people being charitable etc. Secondly, the word bid also means truthfulness. Okay? Be being truthful, it gives the sense of a civic okay. So, for example, it is said Birla, to me, no, you mean is Orth, Bharat meaning it was true, okay. Meaning he, he took an oath and then and then it was fulfilled. Thirdly, the word bid also gives the meaning of the goodness of this world and of the hereafter. So, bid includes all

00:48:40--> 00:49:43

good, whether it is in this life or it is in the hereafter. So, who is above album is the one who is very good, who is very kind, who is very generous, who is very truthful, all right, the source of goodness, the one who is always doing good to his his creatures. So, with regard to Allah subhanaw taala above gives a sense of, you know, the fact that Allah subhanaw taala is attributed with the with the attribute of beer and he his actions are also good. So he is good in and of himself. And he, he does what is good, his actions are also all good. So with regard to Allah subhanaw taala the name Allah means First of all, that Allah subhanaw taala is good. He is truly good and kind. And

00:49:43--> 00:50:00

remember that this is a name that befits only Allah subhanaw taala. The feminine form of the word bow is Barbara. Okay. And we learned in Hades that you know, there was a woman whose name was Barbara, and the Prophet sallallahu earlier said him changed her name to Zane up and he's

00:50:00--> 00:50:14

Do not declare yourselves to be pure, because Allah knows best those of you who are obedient. So, burn is a name that befits only Allah subhanaw taala because he is the only one who is perfectly good.

00:50:15--> 00:51:12

So when I lost planet Allah is perfectly good It means that he is a feudal heir son, he is continuously and abundantly good to his slaves, any everything in existence, benefits from his goodness, from his kindness, from his generosity, any his kindness his generosity is such that it benefits all the creatures, all the inhabitants of the earth and all the inhabitants of the skies in every single moment in in obvious ways and also in in ways that are hidden. So Allah subhanaw taala is born He is merciful he is generous and his favors are never ending with earn and so look man i a 20 that will us Bahar la come near Amma hula hula tell you about we know that he has amply bestowed

00:51:12--> 00:51:55

upon you his his favors, both manifest and hidden. Any there's many blessings that you see and many blessings that you don't even see you don't even know about. And sort of the Brahimi 34 almost Panthera says will attack him in coolermaster ultimo he has given you everything that you've asked for we're in Terra dunia Matala, he left her so her and if you were to count the blessings of Allah, you would not be able to enumerate them, you would fail to do so you wouldn't be able to count the number of blessings that Allah Subhana Allah has given you, because there are so many and and literally if we were to spend our entire lives just counting the blessings, just identifying the

00:51:55--> 00:52:33

favors of Allah, we wouldn't be able to. Why because every single moment of our existence, we are benefiting not just from one blessing, but with numerous blessings. In every second of our existence, we are benefiting from numerous blessings of Allah, uncountable blessings of Allah, and the realization that that we are benefiting from the favors of Allah, that is also a blessing of Allah. So how could we possibly count the favors of Allah, it would be impossible for us.

00:52:34--> 00:53:26

When Allah subhanaw taala is available, it means that he is also especially kind to his servants. One is that he is constantly abundantly, you know, giving good to them. But it also means that he is especially kind to his servants, meaning that he wants the best for them. And he doesn't just provide us with you know, material blessings, he actually wants ease for us, you read the law who become a user, well, are you ready to become Rasul? Allah wants ease for you, he does not want difficulty for you. Allah subhanaw taala pardons our sins, alright, we are for any say he asked, he pardons sins and mistakes, when when we do something wrong, he does not punish us immediately.

00:53:27--> 00:54:20

Right? We wronged ourselves and Allah subhanaw taala reforms our condition, right, he, you know, despite our sins and disobedience, he does not seize his favors upon us. Right? And then he, he wants good for us. Right? When we are grateful, then that is something that our last panel Turner likes for us, not because our gratitude benefits him, but because our gratitude benefits us. When we are grateful to Allah, this is something that benefits us. And when we are ungrateful, then this is something that a Lost Planet Allah does not like for us. Why? Because our in gratitude harms us. So Allah subhanaw taala is good to his servants, not just in the sense that he provides for them, that

00:54:20--> 00:54:59

he that he created them, and he has given them so many things, but also because he wants good for his creatures. This is the reason why Allah subhanaw taala didn't just create us and leave us over here to to wander and to fend for ourselves. No, he sent prophets he sent guidance, He created us upon fitrah right, he equipped us with, with hearing with vision with with hearts, you know with intellect, why, so that we can see we can listen we can observe we can reflect we can learn. Right? So this is Allah subhanaw taala as you know, kindness

00:55:00--> 00:55:47

His special generosity towards his creatures. And then when Allah subhanaw taala is unbound, it also means that he is Assad the cleaning he is truthful in his promises, whatever that Allah subhanaw taala has promised his his slaves, whether it is a promise of reward, or a warning of punishment, anything that Allah subhanaw taala has informed of, then that is true, it is going to be fulfilled it is going to come true. So in zero to 225 to 28 of us Pantheon inventions regarding the people of Paradise that will occur bada bada boom Allah berlinetta sat alone, they will turn to each other asking each other that they will talk amongst themselves. And connu inner corner covelo Fie Elina

00:55:47--> 00:56:35

mushfiq pain. Some of them will say that we used to be fearful among our people that in in worldly life among our families among our people, we were fearful. Why were they fearful? One meaning of this is that they were fearful of displeasing Allah, they were still afraid of Allah, even though they were at home in the comfort of their families. And another interpretation of this is that they lived in constant fear. Why? Because it wasn't okay. You know, it wasn't acceptable to the people around them, that they should worship Allah. So if they would worship Allah, that they would be oppressed, so they lived in fear. So they will say in paradise for Manila, who are Alina, so Allah

00:56:35--> 00:57:03

conferred favor upon us, well, we'll corner of a swarm and he protected us from the punishment of the scorching fire, because that is truly the greatest punishment, the greatest torture, the greatest difficulty. So Allah delivered us from that that is the greatest favor in the kingdom and covenant adieu, indeed, we used to supplicate him before we used to call upon him in the world. We used to make door to him

00:57:04--> 00:57:53

that he or Allah protect us from the fire that he or Allah deliver us from this hardship. So in Cornermen Cobb, Luna drew who in who who will Babu Rahim? Indeed it is he who is the who is above who is the kind who is truthful in his promises. And he is a Rahim, the Merciful. So when Allah subhanaw taala is involved, it means that he is true in his promises. And the people of Paradise will say this, they will say Alhamdulillah Hilary's Southern corner where the who all praise to Allah who was true in his promise to us. Number five, when Allah subhanaw taala is unborn, it means that he is especially kind to those who do bit, meaning those who do good, then Allah subhanaw taala

00:57:53--> 00:58:39

is especially good to them, how that He rewards them generously, he multiplies their rewards, right? And this is why people in paradise will say that Allah is a bar, he is so kind he is ever kind. His reward is ever so generous. And really, if you think about it, Allah subhana wa tada is so generous in his rewards. And he there are times that Allah subhanaw taala has chosen above others, there are places that a loss Pandora has chosen above others and if you were to do something good in those places, or in those times their award is multiplied so many times more. Right? And they're easy good deeds. You say Subhana Allah He will be handy 100 times Alright, so much reward. You say Subhana

00:58:39--> 00:58:58

Allah Alhamdulillah Allah over 33 times. And then you say la ilaha illallah wa hola Sheree Keller lol we'll call on hamdullah who are ally coalition Cody, after Salah, you say this, all your sins are forgiven, even if they are as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, like the full month of the sea.

00:58:59--> 00:59:44

So when Allah subhanaw taala is Albar What are we supposed to do? We are supposed to first of all believe that Allah is truly very, very kind and very, very good to his creation. Unfortunately, we think more about the difficulties and problems and the trials, which are actually a result of our own wrongdoing. They're meant to be a wake up call. They're they're meant to be moments that should humble us. But we but when we talk about those things as if Allah subhanaw taala is not kind, Allah subhanaw taala is not good stuff. It'll law. We should seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala forever even thinking that Allah is not good to his servants. Allah is a noble, very, very good to

00:59:44--> 01:00:00

his servants. If we were to count the blessings of Allah, we would not be able to count them. And remember, Allah subhanaw taala is not in need of his creatures. We are in need of Allah. Yet Allah is good to us, even though he doesn't benefit

01:00:00--> 01:00:50

Fit from you know, being good to us and from our gratitude, etc. It doesn't affect him because Allah is Alani. Yet he is good to us. So this is something that we must believe in. You know, we disobey Allah. Allah subhanaw taala conceals us if he wanted, he could have exposed us, but he doesn't write he gives us time it gives us chances. So Allah is truly Very good, very kind to his slaves and we must believe in that. Secondly, when Allah subhanaw taala is Alba. He is good, he does good. Then he also likes us to do good, which is why in the Quran we're told to do bill, right, les Sal Bella unto Alou her kmsauto, Baccarat 177 so many different types of good deeds are mentioned over there. Then

01:00:50--> 01:01:36

especially goodness, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a below hurstville haluk. That bid is is good character good demeanor, right? That is what we need to show. Bid at times require that we give right as we learned in the Quran, lentinan will be reflected on fukami matter a boon you can never attain a beer until you spend out of what you love, and what data set this means that you can never attain, build or become the builder of your Lord. Meaning if you want the good reward of a learn, then you better spend out of what you love. If you want Jenna, then you have to spend out of what you love. You have to give of yourself. And sometimes giving doesn't just mean giving tangible

01:01:36--> 01:02:21

things it means giving the smile right giving a good assumption. Right not passing judgment, being tolerant, being forgiving, but you know, pardoning other people and the best of those who deserve our you know, the most the people who deserve our good treatment the most are who our parents. So we learn about Yeah, Harley is Santa wabo, wrong. BYD, they, he, he was very kind very good towards his parents, both his mother and father rissalah his son and we learned about him about Ron beware Lydda, t that good to my mother. Right? So goodness towards people in general, but specifically parents when Allah subhanaw taala is unbothered. This means that we should be truthful. And we

01:02:21--> 01:03:05

should also be generous. A brutal Hello de la Mourinho when he heard the idea that you can never attain the good reward until you spend out of what you love. He came to the Prophet sallallahu early Islam and he said that this is what Allah says. And out of all my property, what I love the most is this garden of mine. And that garden was right across the masjid prime real estate. Right? And he said that I give it in the way I'm Allah. So he gave off what he loved. And remember that the reward of doing good is immediate. Allah subhanaw taala rewards people who do good immediately in this life, and also in the next life in a berada, Luffy. Noreen, that indeed, the people who do bid they

01:03:05--> 01:03:21

will they are in their aim, they are in in bliss, and this bliss they experience in this life, and they will experience in the next life in its absolute perfection. Finally, how can we call upon the last panel thought of by this name, Albar

01:03:22--> 01:04:05

by believing that Allah subhanaw taala is his album, he loves goodness, that we should strive to do good and we ask Allah subhanaw taala for the ability to do good. So there are two two R's that I want to share with you. The first of all, is the is the DA which the Prophet sallallahu earlier said I'm taught us to say when we're traveling, when we're going on a journey, that after saying Subhanallah the Sahaba Lana had amaku now, love omokri Nene, we're in ihlara been allemaal kalibo then we say Allahumma in nanus ello, Kofi safaree. Now Heather and build our taqwa that Oh Allah we ask you in this journey of ours for unbid yeah Allah give us a bit in this journey. What has been

01:04:05--> 01:04:19

goodness, that give me the ability to do good on this journey of mine? What the client also piety that I stay away from since wamena, Imani Matilda, and the ability to do good to do those deeds which are pleasing to you.

01:04:21--> 01:04:35

And then secondly, one of the supplications that the Prophet sallallahu Ernestina would make this reportage and and how can that Allah India's Luca Mooji Betty rock Matic was there mmm filtek was Salama termin Cooley ism will have aneema termin coolibah.

01:04:36--> 01:05:00

And this means that Oh Allah I asked you for that which brings about your mercy, and that which brings about your forgiveness, and I asked you to protect me from every sin, and I asked you to benefit me with every good deed and he that give me the ability to do good so that I may benefit because the one who does good is the one who benefits from

01:05:00--> 01:05:23

That goodness maleness panel try to give us the ability to do good melosa panel Tada. Give us the ability to show gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala for all his favors, inshallah, we will conclude over here subchronic Allahumma behenic eyeshadow Allah ilaha illa Anta stuffie recover autoboot Lake wa Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
