Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:32--> 00:01:23

are with the Bella human a show you plan your rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim o salat wa salam ala rasulillah al Karim rubbish Swahili Saudi were silly emri wash Lula rock that Emily Sani yufka who Cali Allah My dear Colby was sadly Sani was roots of Hema Takagi Armenia herbal alameen inshallah we will continue with our study of the names of Allah the Exalted and a smile on Hausner and today inshallah, we will begin by looking at the name and Mohit, and Mohave is the one who completely encompasses the one who fully surrounds something. Now, the name Mohave occurs eight times in the Quran. And the word more healed is actually from is actually derived from the word

00:01:23--> 00:02:19

helper and E helper is to surround or encompass something from all sides. So, when you surround or encompass something from all sides, it means that there is no escape for it. So, Mohave is the one who completely surrounds someone or something, this is the literal meaning of the word. Mohit, now a Halla be he is also to enclose all right to impose so for example, the word is used for a people who have encircled their enemy. So once once they have encircled their enemy, you know, the sides of the town, for example, then that means that the people who are inside now must surrender, there is no way of escape for them. And a helper will I'm sorry, how far behind me is, is that someone was

00:02:19--> 00:03:07

encompassed with something and they had no escape from it whatsoever. So when we look at the word, you know, a hopper, then we see that it gives us several connotations, the first connotation is to completely have power and control over something to have complete dominance over something. Then secondly, it denotes having complete knowledge and awareness of something. And then thirdly, it also denotes to destroy something. Why? Because once people have been surrounded, it means that they have been destroyed by their enemy. So these are the three meanings of the word However, now, when we're talking about Allah subhanaw taala the name or hayleigh as I mentioned earlier, it occurs eight

00:03:07--> 00:04:05

times in the Quran. And we see for example, that, that in the Quran, it is said that, that Allah is Allah inna who be cliche Mohave that Allah subhanaw taala encompasses everything, right Allah subhanaw taala encompasses everything. Sometimes this name is mentioned with regard to the knowledge of Allah, right or the fact that he that he encompasses those who disbelieve So, what this means is that first of all, when Allah subhanaw taala is Mohave it means that he encompasses the entire creation, meaning the entire creation is within his control. He has absolute power over them, he is fully and completely aware of them. And whatever he decrees whatever he decides regarding them is

00:04:05--> 00:04:55

what happens. So there is no escape from him. There is no you know, avoiding his decree. And then when Allah subhana wa tada is Mohit, this also includes the fact that he encompasses the entire creation, with his mercy, right, meaning that everything is affected by the mercy of Allah the Exalted. So the first meaning of the name or hate is that he encompasses the entire creation, as it is said into the full slate as if 50 for that other in the whole because cliche more healed, that unquestionably, Allah subhanaw taala has encompassed everything. Everything means the entire creation. All people, no matter who they are, no matter what their status is, no matter how sneaky

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

they may be, no matter how private their affairs they may be, no matter how

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

much they work with secrecy. Any it doesn't matter because we as creation are all encompassed by Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:05:10--> 00:05:58

Secondly, when Allah subhanaw taala is more hailed than when this name is mentioned or when the sify is mentioned, it is specifically referring to the fact that Allah subhanaw taala has complete knowledge of what his slaves are doing. This means that nothing of their deeds, nothing of their actions is hidden from Allah subhana wa Tada. So instead of the Tanakh, verse number 12, it is mentioned that Allah subhana wa tada has a how to be cliche in your ilma that Allah subhanaw taala has encompassed everything in knowledge. So there's nothing that you know we do, or, you know, nothing that happens, nothing that occurs in this in this existence, except that Allah subhanaw

00:05:58--> 00:06:03

taala has full awareness of it. He has encompassed it fully.

00:06:04--> 00:06:54

Our problem is that when we have, you know, some knowledge of something, some awareness of something, our understanding, our knowledge still has those gaps and holes in it. Right. Our knowledge of something is not perfect, it still has its imperfections. But Alyssa Pannell tada has fully encompassed everything in knowledge. And then thirdly, when Allah subhanaw taala is more hands on, it also means that he has complete power over the actions of people, meaning, no matter what they're doing, Allah subhanaw taala still has power and control over them. So there is no plot, no plan that people can come up with, in order to avoid the decree of Allah, or in order to escape

00:06:54--> 00:07:44

Allah, in order to cause any harm to Allah. It's not possible whatsoever, because he has, he has fully and completely encompass them. In total Baqarah is number 19. We learned that we'll Lahu more hands on build caffine that Allah subhanaw taala has fully encompassed those who disbelieve so the mufa Cyril say that one of the interpretations of this is that Allah subhanaw taala is going to destroy them. He is going to punish them. Meaning, yes, right now in their freedom. They're doing whatever they, whatever it is that they're doing in their rebellion in their disobedience in their pride. But no matter what they do, they can never escape Allah azza wa jal, and we see an example of

00:07:44--> 00:08:38

this mentioned in total borouge where Allah subhanaw taala mentions hell attack a hadith or geonode. Has there come to you the news of the armies, the troops, the troops of who the troops of fit our own with a mood, right? Or the troops who were fit our own and some odd fit our own was not just one man. He had his armies. So mood also we're a nation of giants. So Berlin larina cafaro fita calib. Do you not know what happened with them? But still those who disbelieve are in complete denial? Willa hoomin worre II him who hails and Allah subhanaw taala has fully encompass them. Meaning, no matter what kind of tyranny they carry out in the world, no matter how much you know, they disobey

00:08:38--> 00:09:30

Allah, no matter how much they oppose the messengers of Allah, such people can never escape the decree of Allah, and we know what happened to fit our own. We also know what happened to the people of the moon, any it's as if a threat is being given that Remember that no matter what you do, Allah subhanaw taala has fully encompassed you. He He has full power over your actions over your plans. In surah, Nisa, I 126. It is mentioned while Illa emf is somehow worth you were mindful of what can Allah who be cliche mohila that to Allah belong, whatever that is in the skies and whatever that is in the earth, everything belongs to Allah. And Allah has encompassed everything.

00:09:32--> 00:10:00

Also in total and file number 47. It has mentioned Willa who Bhima Yama, Luna Mohave that Allah subhanaw taala has fully encompassed whatever that they're doing. So no matter how strong their plan is, no matter how detailed and how, how powerful it may be, Allah subhanaw taala is able to thwart their plans, he's able to completely destroy their plants. So when Allah subhanaw taala has

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

Fully encompassed us, right with his knowledge and with his power and with his decree, and there is no escape from him, then what is it that we should do? What is our responsibility? Our responsibility is that first of all, when Allah subhanaw taala is more healed, than we should fear Allah, we should have higher of Allah, we should fear Allah subhanaw taala in private and in public, you see, sometimes when we are in a public place, or people are able to see us, right, what we're doing what we're saying, we become very, very careful, right? We become very proper, but then in private, at home, with our family, what happens to us? How is it that we're talking? What is it that

00:10:53--> 00:11:46

we are saying, right? How are we behaving, these are things that we that we should pay attention to, because the last panel thought of is fully encompassed us, no matter where we are, that there is no escape from Allah subhanaw taala. So we can we can we can be, you know, all nice and proper in front of other people. But what we do in private is also known to Allah subhanaw taala. So we should come out of this hypocrisy in sort of to Nyssa I have 108 it is mentioned that yes, the phone I mean, a nurse, what is the phone Aminullah? That the hypocrites try really hard to hide from people when they're doing something wrong? Right? They don't want people to find out what they're doing. Right?

00:11:46--> 00:12:33

Yes, the phone I mean, a nurse, they try really hard to hide from people. When is the phone Aminullah? And they don't. They're not able to hide themselves from Allah, meaning they have fear of people, but they have no fear of Allah. They have, you know, hyah of people, they're shy of people, but they're not shy of Allah when they're doing something wrong. And the fact is that wahoo amerihome, Allah is with them. If you buy you tuna, mala, you're bombing and coli, when they are plotting, and they're saying things which Allah subhanaw taala does not approve of. Allah does not approve off, but they say those things in private to one another. And they would never say those

00:12:33--> 00:13:19

things out in public. And really, this is something that we should pay attention to. Because sometimes in our private conversations, you know, in our private WhatsApp groups, for example, we're saying things about other people, which we don't want them to ever find out. We try so hard to make sure that these conversations stay private. And yes, there could be different reasons for privacy. Because one reason is that, you know, other people have nothing to do with your personal matters. But sometimes we want that privacy because we know that what we're saying is not appropriate. What we're saying is offensive, it is rude, it is hurtful. So we will not say that in front of people,

00:13:19--> 00:14:11

but we will say it behind their backs. So when we're having those conversations with our close, you know, family or with our close friends, where we are, you know, making fun of certain people. We are you know, backbiting them, we are poking fun at them, we are ridiculing them, etc. Then remember that yes, those people will not find out. But Allah subhanaw taala is with us and he knows what we are saying. So we should have that hey out of Allah. That is what I'm saying. Something that Allah subhanaw taala would approve off? Or is it something that Allah subhanaw taala would disapprove of, what can Allah who be my Yama, Luna mohila the verse ends with that, that Allah subhana wa tada has

00:14:11--> 00:14:59

fully encompassed what they're doing. So no hidden private conversation or action of ours is actually hidden from Allah. It is fully known to Allah insert earlier on i o 120. It is said in the Lucha Bhima Yama, Luna, Mohit that Indeed Allah has encompass to whatever that they're doing. So sometimes this is what we do that, you know, we whisper, right. We look around to make sure nobody's there. nobody's listening. Right? Nobody's watching, right? We look over our shoulder to make sure that yes, we have that privacy. But then what are we typing on our phone? What is it that we're looking at? Allah subhanaw taala is fully aware. So when Allah is more hailed than we should fear

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

Allah

00:15:00--> 00:15:55

Both in private and in public. Secondly, when Allah subhanaw taala is mohill he has fully encompassed what we're doing, then we should surrender to Him, we should surrender to Him. Because we should realize that we are not free to do whatever that we desire, whatever that we want, Allah has encompassed us, his decree will prevail over us, well, he will hold us accountable, he will hold us responsible, and his judgment is going to be carried out on us. So then we should live life, remembering this reality, right? We shouldn't go on, you know, doing whatever that we please. Or in rebellion, you know, to Allah subhanaw taala in an open disobedience to Allah, living life as if we

00:15:55--> 00:16:47

don't care, the because the fact is that we are not free. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he wants demonstrated this by drawing a few lines right on the sand. And he showed that how the human being is, is within a square basically, right in the sense that we are, you know, we are constrained, confined by the decree of Allah, in the sense that we're not going to live on forever, we are going to die. So when that is our reality, that whatever that we're doing is known to Allah, and we cannot go on live in life forever, then the intelligent person would surrender to Allah. Instead of resisting, instead of always fighting instead of always thinking of ways to get away. The

00:16:47--> 00:17:03

intelligent person would surrender to the decree of a law, they would surrender to the command of Allah, because the only success, the only way of salvation is through this way, the way of submission to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:17:04--> 00:17:54

Then when Allah subhanaw taala is more hailed This means that we should be very careful about how we're dealing with people. Because no matter what plan, no matter what, you know, conspiracy we come up with no matter what plan we make, to harm people to oppress people, to deprive them of their rights, to deceive them to cheat them, etc. No matter what we do. Allah subhanaw taala knows all that we are doing. Well Allahu Bhima Yama, Luna, Mohit, we may have a very, you know, clever plan, but Allah subhana wa Tada. His plan is far more perfect. Right. Well Meco, willmaker, Allah, Allah, Hyrule mascarene. And they plot meaning the people come up with a plot in order to harm others. And

00:17:54--> 00:18:44

guess what Wilma can Allah, Allah subhanaw taala also has a plan in return, meaning to harm to punish these people who are planning to harm others will law haidle mascarene and Allah is the best of those who plot or those who plan meaning Allah subhana wa Tada. His plan is way stronger, and way more powerful than your plan to harm others, your plan to cheat them or deceive them. So do not oppress people do not deceive them, do not lie to them, because then we will lose the friendship of Allah subhanaw taala like that. Then when Allah subhanaw taala is more hands, this also means that we should not fear people, we should not have that fear of people that they're going to do something

00:18:44--> 00:19:29

to harm us and yes, people may be trying, and they may even be successful. But ultimately, remember that they can only damage us with what Allah subhanaw taala has already decreed for us. Think about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, right when we study the cielo, especially the time in Makkah and the early years in Medina, we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the companions they lived in so much uncertainty, right? constant fear of people in the sense that, you know, somebody might come and attack them, somebody might come and kill them, somebody might come in, you know, take their property away by force, etc. You need that their life was in danger, every

00:19:29--> 00:19:59

single moment. So Allah subhanaw taala revealed, we learned in su israa number 60. That what is lacking in Rebecca, a hell of a nurse. And when we said to you, that indeed your Lord has fully encompassed people, any This is so encouraging, that when you have that fear that what will people say? What will they do? They might harm me, they might do this to me, they might do that to me.

00:20:00--> 00:20:55

And when we keep focusing on people, what they might do to us, then this is when we are filled with fear. We should counter these thoughts by reminding ourselves that, you know, Allah has fully encompassed people. Allah knows what they're doing. His plan is stronger than theirs, his power is stronger than theirs. And he has fully encompass them, he knows all of their plans, and he's able to destroy them. He's able to destroy their plans, right. So, when you realize the weakness of the creation, right before the power of the Creator, then you stop fearing the creation. Right. So, when Allah subhanaw taala is more healed, then you learn to trust upon him when you realize that Allah

00:20:55--> 00:21:05

subhanaw taala has fully encompass people, you learn to put your trust in Him and at the same time you realize the weakness of the creation so you so you stop fearing them.

00:21:06--> 00:21:30

Then when Allah subhanaw taala is a more hails and we want to receive the help of Allah, then we must do our part. And what is that ensued earlier man I have 120 Allah subhanaw taala says what in the spirou and if you are patient with the dako and you fear Allah, then lie your booboo Khun K to whom Shay

00:21:31--> 00:22:23

then the plot of people, right the conspiracies that they make in order to harm you. their plans will never harm you at all. Lie your bouquet don't shame at all. Any they will not be able to harm you whatsoever. When if you are patient and if you are truthful to Allah, you're conscious of Allah, you mend your relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada. And whatever that people are doing, they will not be able to harm you. And then the verse continues in the law, habima Yama, Luna mohill. Indeed, Allah has encompassed whatever that they are doing. So yes, we should not fear people, and we should put our trust in Allah. But at the same time, if we really want Allah subhanaw taala his help and

00:22:23--> 00:23:13

protection, we have to do our part. And that is that we have to be patient, we have to and we also have to observe the quality of Allah, we have to be true to Allah, we have to be conscious of Allah, in private and in public. Now when Allah subhanaw taala is more hailed How is it that we can call upon Allah by this beautiful name. Now I couldn't find any draw in which this particular name is mentioned. However, there are many doors in which the meaning of this name is definitely implied. So for example, we have because Mohandas means one who fully encompasses right is is fully aware of his creation and has full power and control over them. So we have this beautiful dryer which we learn

00:23:13--> 00:23:15

about that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:23:17--> 00:24:07

It he taught people to save this before going to sleep. And what is that draw that Dora is a love model, but somewhere it would have been early, what up allow Surely, when you're thinking about the name, who hailed the one who has encompassed everything, right? This law says, Oh Allah, Who is the Lord of the Skies and the Lord of the earth, and the Lord of the great throne? robina, who is our Lord, what a cliche, who is the Lord of everything, who is fairly happy when Noah who is the splitter off of the grain and the seed, right, the fruit seed, any there is no grain there is no seed that splits open, except that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who has caused that to happen.

00:24:08--> 00:24:51

right because he is more healthy as encompass everything in knowledge. He has power over everything. One month, Zilla told us he was in really well for Khan. He is the one who has sent down the tow dots, the Injeel and the Quran, right? He has sent down revelation. So you mentioned the perfection of Allah. And then you say a rule becoming shared equally Shay, in antioxident been asleep at that, Oh Allah, I seek refuge with you from the evil of everything whose forelock you are holding. Meaning I seek refuge with You against the evil of the creation.

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

And the reality of the creation is that no matter how powerful it may be, you or Allah are holding

00:25:00--> 00:25:19

It's four o'clock meaning it is fully in your control. You see Nestle at four o'clock is the hair which is at the at the, at the front of a person's head, right being right above the forehead. This hair is called the forelock. So imagine if someone has grabbed, you know, they're holding,

00:25:21--> 00:26:08

you know, this hair of, of a person, that means that person cannot go right or left or anywhere, right? Meaning, meaning they have full control over this individual. So and don't be nasty at Ya Allah, you are holding the forelock of every creature, meaning you have full power over it. So if there is any evil in that creature, I asked you to protect me from its evil, because I don't have control over it. You have control over it. And you see this creature could be anything. It could be a human, it could be a gene, it could be an animal, right? It could be someone you know, someone you don't know, it could be a real fear and imaginary fear, any kind of fear we have right? Then we

00:26:08--> 00:27:02

should make this thorough. And then some more names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala are mentioned in this door. So Allah subhanaw taala is unveiled, he has fully encompass the creation and this is something that should instill both fear in us as well as hope right and more confidence in Allah subhanaw taala. Now the next name that we will look at today insha Allah is the name of Allah Al Karim al Karim, the one who is ever near the one who is very close to his slaves. The name of Allah Al Karim is mentioned in the Quran in three places. We have for example, in sort of hood, I a number 6160 and 61. Where the prophet SAW her the son Adam, he addressed his people. And then he

00:27:02--> 00:27:54

advised them that look, you should seek forgiveness from Allah and repent to him in Nairobi caribou. Mooji, indeed, my lord is ever near and he is Mujib, he is ever responsive, he is not far and he does not ignore his creation, he is near and he response. We also have this name mentioned in silicon Baqarah verse number 189, where it is said what either set up very badly or need for a new colleague, that when my slaves ask you about me, then tell them that I am here in sort of Subbu IRA number 50 It is said in the who Samir uncloudy indeed he meaning Allah subhanaw taala he is semir he is ever hearing he is buddy he is ever near. So the name occurs three times in the book of Allah

00:27:55--> 00:28:53

now, but he is the one who is near, right because it's it's derived from the word quota. And Korb is the opposite of board board is distance right? But Baroda is he was distant meaning he was far. So quota is the opposite of that. What is called a quota is nearness, right near ness in terms of place in terms of time, or rank or relationship. So for example, the day of judgment is corrib. Right? Or the death, the time of death of every person is buddy, meaning it's, it's near, right, it's not far, then there are those who are more kohlrabi, those who are brought near Allah meaning in terms of their rank in terms of their status before Allah then you know, the corba or the will corba these

00:28:53--> 00:29:25

are people who are close to you, why in terms of relationship, right? You are related to them by blood, therefore, they're close to you. So the concept of orb is is so quick basically means nearness, right closeness, and this could be in terms of place that someone is physically near or in time that something is is going to happen very soon, or in station in rank, and also in relationship. And then

00:29:26--> 00:29:59

also gives a sense of approaching near drawing near. Okay, so buddy, that is someone who is near. But he is someone who is not far. And Kareem is also someone who brings someone near right or something near. So when we're talking about Allah subhanaw taala What does that mean? It means when Allah subhanaw taala is bloody This means that he is a lady lace or be buried. He is not at all far.

00:30:00--> 00:30:53

From his slaves, right? Allah subhanaw taala is not at all far from his slaves. This means that first of all, Allah subhanaw taala is near his slaves. Okay? When Allah subhanaw taala is bloody, it means that he is near his slaves. Now, when Allah subhanaw taala is near his slaves, what does that mean? It means that yes, Allah is above his arch, right? He is above his throne, yet at the same time, he is near his slaves, he is near his slaves, so he knows them, he hears them, he responds to them, right? And this is why we learned that once you know a Bedouin asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that all messenger of Allah is our Lord near,

00:30:54--> 00:31:50

so that we can whisper to him when we're making draw, or is he far so we have to really yell out loud when we are calling upon Allah. So this is when this idea was revealed in circle bacara iO 189 that what either set a lacquer a body or a knee for a new colleague, that when my slaves ask you about me, then indeed I am mere Oh gee Buddha with a dairy that Darren I respond to the DA, the invocation of the collar when he calls upon me. So the lesson is that Allah subhanaw taala is near his slaves, right? He is not far from his creation. We learn in sort of the Lord Ayah number 10 that so while men command, a servile polar woman, Jehovah be, it is all the same. Whether someone among

00:31:50--> 00:32:37

you speaks very secretly, or out loud, openly in front of everybody. And it's, it's the same to Allah, whether you talk softly, or you talk loudly. Whether you keep something within your heart and you never say it, or you say it all the time. It does. It's all the same to Allah. Because Allah subhanaw taala is bloody. We learn in total magetta Allah is number seven, about the woman who came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she complained to him about her husband. And she, she, you know, spoke to the Prophet sallallahu earlier sent him for some time, I shall do a lot more on her was there and she did not hear that there are that this woman made? I shall de la Miranda was

00:32:37--> 00:32:45

in the same room. But she did not hear the dog that this woman made. And Allah subhanaw taala revealed that

00:32:47--> 00:33:36

the semi Allah who Kol allottee to God Luca feasel Jia that Allah subhanaw taala heard the statement of the woman who was arguing with you about her husband wish the key it Allah and she was complaining to Allah. Right? So I should I'll do love marnya was amazed that she was in the room and she didn't hear what that woman said. But Allah subhana wa tada heard the plea of this woman from above the seven heavens. Isn't that amazing? So Allah is asleep, right? He is near his slaves. And you know this verse, where it is mentioned what he does set a look everybody I need for inequality, that when my slaves ask you about me, then indeed I am near this verse is very amazing. You see in

00:33:36--> 00:34:30

the Quran, there are many verses that show or that were revealed in response to people's questions, right. So for example, yes, alone aka right, they ask you, I kneel humbly will may say they ask you about intoxicants about wine and gambling. Right. So cool. Allah subhanaw taala revealed call you Oh Prophet sallallahu earlier said and you say you tell them you give them the answer that fee Hema if one could be with a woman, if you're leanness that in them, meaning in wine and gambling is a lot of sin. And yes, there may be some benefits, but but the sin is greater than the benefit. Right? But notice how in this verse what is said is they ask you, so all Prophet sallallahu earlier seven cool,

00:34:30--> 00:34:59

you tell them and this is a common in many verses. Right? That where a question is mentioned they ask you and then the response is given where the Prophet salallahu Urdu center was told that you tell people you give the answer. But the verse that we're looking at right now Wait, that what he does set an a carry by the our knee when they ask when when my servants asked you about me. Then it is not said football in the curry

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

Then you tell them that indeed I am near, no pull is not set over there, the answer is given straightaway for in me corrib, then indeed, I am near, as if to show that Allah subhanaw taala is so close to his slaves, that there's really nothing in between, no person, in between, nobody in between, meaning you directly call upon Allah subhanaw taala you, no matter who you are, and, and as you are, with all of your flaws, and your sins and your imperfections and your weaknesses, and your judgement of yourself and whatever it is, however you are, you can call upon Allah as you are, you don't need a third person in the middle, you you don't need a middle person, this concept does not

00:35:55--> 00:36:46

exist in Islam, that you have to approach Allah, you know, through someone else, the Prophet sallallahu already you send them said that he does first Allah when you need to ask when you need to bed, then ask Allah any directly ask Allah He did not say that first call upon me and then I will make law on your behalf, right? Or first go to you know, such and such a righteous person, or or find a super righteous person and then request them to make the offer, you know, this concept does not exist in Islam. Allah subhanaw taala is corrib for a Neale, Kareem it hasn't been said for coal in the corrib right, no directly tell them directly they should know that Allah is near. So there is

00:36:46--> 00:37:41

no wasseypur right there is no middleman between you and your Lord for anybody. Now, remember that the the the closeness to Allah subhanaw taala the nearness to Allah subhanaw taala it is of two kinds, all right. The first type of closeness is ordinariness is the photobomb right near this which is general in the sense that Allah subhanaw taala is, is yes he is near to all his creatures, right? So he knows them, he watches them, he observes them closely, he fully encompasses them, he has power over them, he is attentive towards their affairs, and so on and so forth. So for example, in sort of off number 16, it is said when Accra boo la him and have been worried, right? Where the human being

00:37:41--> 00:38:35

is mentioned, Allah subhanaw taala says that we are closer to him than his jugular vein. Right? Meaning Allah subhanaw taala is closer to his creation than they are to one another. Right? meaning no matter how close someone is to you, right, they don't know what's happening inside of you. And so often it happens, that you are with your loved ones, right? And you think that they, they can read your expressions, you you hope you expect that they're able to, you know, that they're able to understand that you are not in a good mood, right? Or, or they're able to understand what you need, but they just don't get it. Right. At times they fail. At times, they fail to pick up on those cues.

00:38:35--> 00:39:29

Right? They don't realize, which is why we have to communicate with them. You would think that if you have known someone all your life, they would understand you, but it doesn't happen. Right? So no matter how close someone is to you, you know that they're not they're really not that close, they don't know what's happening inside of you. Allah subhanaw taala is ever near his slaves. So Allah is closer to his slaves than the slaves are to one another. And remember that ultimately we return to Allah. Right? We could be very close to people we could be very close to, you know, one another, but ultimately we are going to be separated. Right? Where we're going to die and return to Allah. So in

00:39:29--> 00:39:59

sort of the work era is 85 where death is being described. It is said when National acquirable ila human comb, we are closer to him than you are. Right? Meaning Allah subhanaw taala is closer to his slave. Then you owe people are to the person who is dying. That body is in front of you, but you're not able to keep the soul. Right? You're not able to keep it. So national acabo de la human calm. So this is the general court of where

00:40:00--> 00:40:56

Allah subhanaw taala is near all of his slaves. But then there is votable hos corpus as in Allah subhanaw taala is many, especially near his worshippers. Allah subhanaw taala is especially near those who beg him and those who ask him and those who praise Him and those who love Him and those who worship Him. So this means that Allah subhanaw taala loves them in return. Allah subhanaw taala helps them and Allah subhanaw taala guides them. So it is mentioned in the Quran that Allah in UNASUR, Allah He corrib indeed the help of Allah is near. Right, Allah subhanaw taala will help. He He certainly helps his righteous leaves. So we learned about Mousavi cinnamon How long are they

00:40:56--> 00:41:49

human sir, when they were sent to fit our own? Allah says in Surah Taha I have 46 that Allah hoffa in any Mara Kuma a smart Allah, that do not fear I am with you. I hear and I see on this panel thought I said this to them. That don't worry Don't be afraid when you go to fit our own. I hear everything I see everything. And then in suitable and file I am 19 it is mentioned what anila Morrow meaning Allah is with the believers circle bacala i 153 in de la hamara sobbing Indeed Allah is with those who are patient in sort of Bukhara io 194 what duckula hawala mu n Allah maral mata pain, fear Allah and you should know that Allah is with those who fear him. What does it mean by this, that

00:41:49--> 00:42:38

Allah is with them, meaning Allah subhana wa tada helps them. Allah subhanaw taala loves them. Allah subhanaw taala guides them and also that almost primal pata response to them he accepts their righteousness in a hadith in Abu Dhabi. Would we learn that when a person stands to pray Salah right when they're facing the Qibla the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said for a NEMA, you're stuck below Rob bajo de Lavasa, meaning that the person is actually facing his Lord, right? Allah is before you. And this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if you must spit, do not spit in front of you. Meaning, you know, for example, if a person is praying in the cough, and

00:42:38--> 00:43:24

you know there's phlegm in their mouth and they must get rid of it, don't just spit in front of you don't do that. Allah is before you you're facing Allah. Right. So, unless the panel thought is especially near his slaves in this way, we learned that when are you going to do long war and who was asked about the distance between the sky and the earth? That that what is that distance in physical terms or needle below more? And who said, it is an answered that an answered prayer, in the sense that that is the distance that matters? Right? When you call upon a law, you make the raw and that the raw is heard by Allah that that's all the distance that matters. And the fact is that when

00:43:24--> 00:44:18

you call upon Allah, you are heard unless panel Tata hears you, Allah subhana wa tada is corrib. So, the physics basically are irrelevant when it comes to pass when it comes to special nearness to Allah subhanaw taala. And then, part of this is that Allah subhanaw taala also guides such servants, right, who who are granted a station of nearness. So in Surah Csaba Ayah number 50. It is mentioned in Berlin to for innama a little Orlando FC. We're in it today to Furby my you hate la Europe be in the Hussam urine corrib the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is told to proclaim that if I am guided, then if I am upon guidance, then it is because of the revelation that my Lord has given me. And indeed my

00:44:18--> 00:44:59

lord is ever hearing ever near. So it's as if we're being told that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is guided because of the revelation that he receives from Allah who is hearing who is near. Right. So this shows that guidance is, is a sign of Allah's nearness to a slave. And really, if you think about it, worldly things they're granted to everybody. Those who are near Allah and also those who are far from Allah far in the sense that they're distant because of their disobedience, their disbelief, right? But those

00:45:00--> 00:45:53

Those who are near of law or those who are guided those who are who those who follow the revelation that Allah subhana wa tada has given. So, in the whole Samir on curry now one thing we must understand is that when we're talking about nearness to Allah subhanaw taala, especially quota POS, then remember that this newness is not metaphorical in the sense that it's not just, you know, to show that Yeah, Allah really loves them and cares about them. So a way of saying that is that Allah is near, no, this newness is literal, okay, literal, but in a way that befits his divinity. Right? Meaning when we're talking about nearest to, you know, the creation, then Okay, that is, you know,

00:45:53--> 00:46:45

nearness in physical terms. Right. But of course, that is not the case when we're talking about nearness to Allah subhanaw taala. He is literally near his slaves, but in a way that befits him in a way that reflects his, his Hulu here, right his his divinity and in a way that is unique to him in a way that does not imply physical contact or material presence, right. But don't take the concept of curb as Oh, it is just a way of speech. No, this is literal, but of course in a way that only befits almost a panel thought of now when Allah subhana wa tada is budeme the first meeting as I mentioned is that the fact that he is near his creation. And then secondly, it also means that He grants

00:46:45--> 00:46:49

stations of nearness to his slaves, so he is mocha.

00:46:50--> 00:46:57

Meaning who gives stations of curb to his slaves. So for example, we learned about Angel gibreel

00:46:58--> 00:47:51

vehicle within your in the dialogue she McKean that gibreel has, has an established place a rank a certain position near Allah subhanaw taala right we learn about other angels your shadow will mocha baboon, right mocha Robin, those who are brought near being those who are who are especially near Allah, we learn about the prophets of Allah. Most early Islam as mentioned in so many of my 52 were lost pounds Allah says we'll call robinair who Nigeria we we brought him near in in private conversation, meaning Allah subhanaw taala spoke to him right will come up now. And in so earlier on I have 45 restarted username is mentioned that he is wamena mukalla been he is among those brought

00:47:51--> 00:48:45

near those granted stations of nearness to Allah soprano Tada. And then we also learn about the righteous slaves Have a look where it has mentioned in the Quran for Ummah in Cana mean el mercado Rabin follow home what I had on what genitourinary that when a person is dying, if he happens to be of the macula, between those who are brought near Allah, then such a person will receive Hello, what are you Han what genitourinary, he will receive. There's different interpretations of this comfort, mercy, of fragrance, and, and garden of, of delightful blessings, garden of bliss. This is what those brought near to Allah will receive in the afterlife. And then we also learn about sabya kwun

00:48:45--> 00:49:33

into the welfare of verses 10 to 12. That was sabby akuna sabew Khoon, Allah ecal macabre boon that those who are ahead right ahead of others, those who are first to do good, they don't delay. They're eager to obey Allah subhanaw taala then such people will be ahead of others on the Day of Judgment also. And they will be Allah equal macabre boon they're the ones who will be brought near, meaning they will be granted stations of nearness to Allah subhanaw taala where fee Janette and Noreen in gardens of delightful blessings and gardens of bliss, right instead of the comma versus 54 to 55. We learn in the mood the Pina fija net in one a hub. Indeed the righteous will be in gardens and rivers

00:49:33--> 00:49:59

fee MK are the single clean air in the Maliki mahkota there that they will be in a seat of honor. Amir Allah subhanaw taala who is melachim looked at it who is perfectly able, who is perfectly powerful and he is the Sovereign of all. So the righteous will be granted nearness to him or zildjian will loose upon autonomy for someone

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

them. Now the question is when Allah subhanaw taala is buddy, what is it that we should do?

00:50:06--> 00:50:54

Well, the first thing we should do is that we should believe that Allah subhanaw taala is near. Right, we should believe that Allah subhanaw taala is near. And as a result of that, we should remember that, you know, we are known, right? Yes, we may be a nobody, right to the people around us, it's possible that they don't care. They don't pay any attention to us. They don't show any regard to us. They don't show any importance to us. They don't even acknowledge our presence. Right? And we may be a nobody, right? Who people don't care about, okay, fine. But you know, what, we're not invisible. We're not unknown, we are known by who, by Allah subhanaw taala. Allah acknowledges

00:50:54--> 00:51:05

you, Allah is corrib to his slaves, people may shun you and abandon you, and try to push you away. And try to, you know,

00:51:07--> 00:51:55

deprive you, right and try to get away from you. And make sure that, you know, nobody comes to you any it's possible. But Allah subhanaw taala is clarity. You may feel that when you say something you are not heard, right? People don't acknowledge what you're saying, but you are heard, because Allah subhanaw taala is corrib he is near his slaves. And you know, sometimes we feel like that, that I am worthless, or, you know, I, nobody hears me, nobody cares about me. We have such feelings, especially when we're going through some kind of hardship or when we've made a mistake. And because we're human, we are not perfect, we will make mistakes, right? And we see examples of this even in

00:51:55--> 00:52:39

the prophets of Allah. Think about Yunus it has set up, right, you know, sorry, Sunnah. He made a mistake where he was frustrated with his people, right? They would not listen to him. So he just left. And we know that he boarded the ship. And then what happened? You know, people, you know, basically had to throw him in the water. They did that a fish swallowed him. And imagine in that darkness, he called upon Allah subhanaw taala. Right, in that loneliness, he called upon Allah subhanaw taala. In in those layers of darkness, he called upon the last panel thought, what do you think in the middle of the sea or in the depths of the water, who heard him? Right, who would come

00:52:39--> 00:53:33

to rescue him? Who would save him? But we learn in the Quran, in total, ambia versus 8788? That whether Noni Ivanova movably been fallen? lanoxin rla Fernanda filoblu, Matt, Allah ilaha illa, anta Subhana Allah in the consuming of learning mean, he called upon Allah that Allah, there is no god worthy of worship, but you indeed you are perfect, I am the one who is at fault, I have done wrong. So Allah subhanaw taala says festa Jebin Allah who so we responded to him when Ajay now humming along and we rescued him from grief. Walker Valley congealed meaning and thus to the rescue the believers. So this means that anytime we are feeling down, we are feeling rejected, unheard,

00:53:33--> 00:54:17

unacknowledged or extremely guilty and those feelings of worthlessness are consuming us. At that time, let us call upon Allah and when we will call upon Allah we will be heard. So, this is the first thing when Allah subhana wa tada is corrupt, we should believe that Allah is near. Secondly, when Allah subhanaw taala is near, then we should call upon him. Right? And this should reflect in the way that we call upon Allah subhanaw taala in the Hadees we learned that of a masala shorty, he said that once we were with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meaning there were traveling, and every time that they, you know, went uphill, alright, meeting as as they're moving forward, as

00:54:17--> 00:55:00

they went uphill. They said a law a quote out loud, right? He said, that worker bottleneck if the fart a sweat on it every time that we said Allahu Akbar, our voices became really loud. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said that all people, be gentle with yourselves, for you are not calling upon someone who is deaf or absent. Indeed he is with you, meaning your Lord, he hears you. And he is not absent from you. Meaning he is with you. He knows what you're saying in know who Samir and Kareem he is hearing and he is near. So basically, the

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

Allahu Urdu seldom taught us the etiquette of calling upon Allah, that when we're making girl, or when we're making Vicar when we're reciting Quran let us not shout, let us not, you know yell, because that will be hard on us, right? It will become exhausting for us. And it's also disrespectful, that you don't have to yell out when you're addressing what when you're talking to your Lord, or zildjian. Thirdly, when Allah subhanaw taala is bereaved, this means that we should feel secure, right? We should feel at ease because we are not alone. Right? You see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had to travel a lot. And you know, travel as much as we find it to

00:55:47--> 00:56:34

be exciting. It has its hardships and the Prophet salallahu Urdu was sending when he traveled, it was mainly for what purpose for different battles, right? And so and when you when you're traveling, you also have you know, you're afraid for yourself, you're also afraid for your family back home. So the Prophet sallallahu Ernestina would make doll in his dog, he would say Allahumma until sablefish, suffer, well Allah, you are the companion in this journey. Right? We are not alone, we know that you are with us will halifa to feel better. And you also take care of the family who is back home. So when you remind yourself of the fact that Allah is near, then your fear departs, right? You feel at

00:56:34--> 00:57:17

ease. What happened with the Prophet sallallahu earlier said I'm in the cave, when human level book of Ile de la Mourinho when they were in the cave and the enemy was right on site. Right, and it will bucket I'll do a little more on who was afraid, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said laughter has an in the Lucha Amarna Do not be sad Indeed, Allah is with us. And so Allah says for unzila Allah who Suki netta Who are they? Allah sent down his tranquility upon him. So the Prophet sallallahu I knew something was at ease, his fear departed. So or anxiety and fear will also diminish. Well, it will go away when we remind ourselves that our last panel tada is Glebe. He is

00:57:17--> 00:58:04

near a line here, not just there he is here, right? He's with me. Then when Allah subhanaw taala is good, he is near. And then we should also be conscious of him in all of our situations. Right? Meaning Don't forget him. Don't ignore him. And then when Allah subhanaw taala is studied, this also means that we should turn back to Allah quickly. Anytime that we make a mistake. We realize we've done something wrong instantly a stuffit Allah, Ya Allah forgive me. Right? Rob bill fairly. In Surah Nisa, verse number 17. It has mentioned that in the matoba to Allah heelan, Lavina, Yama, Luna su A B Johanna thing, so Maya to bounnam in corrib, that the repentance which Allah subhanaw taala

00:58:04--> 00:58:55

accepts from his slaves, is which one is the repentance that comes from the people who do something wrong in ignorance. And ignorance doesn't mean they didn't know. It can also mean they forgot, right? Or they, they were overcome by, you know, emotion or impulse. So in that moment, they were as if they were ignorant, but then some Maya tupuna min corrib. they repent very soon, very quickly, meaning as soon as they realize this was not right. They make Toba to Allah, they seek forgiveness from Allah and this is what we should do, do not delay repentance, right? And then when Allah is buddy, he is near, then we should also be clean, in the sense that we should also be near people are

00:58:55--> 00:59:52

easy to deal with approachable, not that we're, we are keeping ourselves on a pedestal. And you know, we are unapproachable. We are too busy for people, we don't have time to, you know, speak with them, we don't have time to help them. Any this this kind of behavior is is is is not appropriate for us. If a lie is cloudy, then we should also be cloudy towards people. And of course when Allah is cloudy, this means that we must strive to draw near Allah, right? Even near her because we want to go from curb to curb costs. Right? Meaning we want to have that special, earnest last time. He had these weird that when a person takes one step toward Allah, Allah takes 10 steps towards them.

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

Right? And we learned in solitude, I have 57 but the way of the righteous that will equal

01:00:00--> 01:00:40

Do you do Runa Yabba tahuna a lot of behemoths will sila that they call upon Allah mystic ways of newness to Allah media they're seeking ways through which they can draw near Allah. And their their struggle is a young ocra who is closer to Allah? Right? Meaning they want to be even closer to Allah subhanaw taala. So the question is, how can we draw closer to Allah soprano. We think in order to do that we have to do some really super righteous person. And you know, we have to give them a pledge, we have to

01:00:41--> 01:01:12

pray through them, we have to go offer, you know, a sacrifice at a grave etc. Any of us have parameters buddy, you don't have to go through somebody, you go directly and you draw closer to Allah subhanaw taala through different ways, ways that Allah subhanaw taala himself has taught us and what are those ways? The first way is that we make Dora right we call upon Allah subhana wa tada we make garowe to Allah Subhana

01:01:13--> 01:02:06

y because the last panel Tauruses that what he does the elecard body army for inequality right I am near and this is with regard to da Wuji Buddha dar either right but last month Allah says that I respond to the call of the caller when he calls upon me. So the first thing we should do in order to draw closer to Allah is that we make draw to him. No matter what mistake we've made, no matter how we're feeling, no matter how worthless even we think we may be, still call upon Allah think about Eunice Allah, he said I'm who made Dora from, from, you know, those from from within those darknesses. Alright. Secondly, through faith and righteous deeds, right, we strive to be closer to

01:02:06--> 01:02:17

Allah subhanaw taala in sort of sub i a 37. It has mentioned that women I'm welcome, what are allowed to come below 32 coumarin done so.

01:02:18--> 01:03:09

It is not your money. And it is not your children at all, that draw you closer to us know, it's not through your money. It's not through your children. It's not through your worldly status that you draw closer to Allah, that you get a station of closeness to Allah. No, it is how in them and Amma whamming solely how it is through Amen. Through faith and through righteous deeds. So work on these two things. You want closeness to Allah, you you build your your you strengthen your faith, and you improve your righteous deeds. And then thirdly, some improve your summer. Be consistent with your Salah and focus in your Salah, try to, you know, perform your Salah.

01:03:10--> 01:03:29

Even better, right? Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a Salah to Kuru ban, Salah is Oban meaning it is the it is closeness to Allah. It is the way through which you will find nearness to Allah. It is the way through which you will need us

01:03:31--> 01:04:17

because you see Salah is is what your your conversation with Allah. Right? And we know that in order to be near anybody have that closeness with anybody. You have to speak with them. You have to spend time with them. You can't just be thinking about them. Right? So Salah is your conversation with Allah, it's your your, you're talking to Allah. Right? Only Allah. So Asana, Coburn, and then especially the night prayer sauna to lay in a Hadees we learn that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said early on beauty MLA, you must adhere to the night prayer, because it was the way of the righteous before you will who have corba to either have become and it is also a way of drawing

01:04:17--> 01:04:59

closer to your Lord. And we know that from so many a Hadees that in the last third of the night was sent to the lowest guy and he asks us He invites us that is there anybody who will call upon me so that I will answer him who will ask me for something and I will give him Is there anyone who is unwell. Who is medela Are you seeking healing? Is there any person suffering from poverty, right who is seeking independence, Allah subhanaw taala invites us to call upon him. So that is how we draw closer to Allah. And then of course such the right prostration as in, in the Quran, we learn with

01:05:00--> 01:05:34

Good work that IP that makes such the to Allah and draw near that is how you draw near Allah by by putting your head on the ground, right. And in our heads we learn the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that the closest, the nearest position, that the slave, the position in which the slave can be closest to Allah subhanaw taala is the position of such the right, that is where you are closest to Allah. And this is why he said a clearer

01:05:35--> 01:05:40

meaning when you're making such the, then then make the right. So,

01:05:41--> 01:06:10

such the, and then we also learn in another head, these are beautiful, how the winner about one of the companions who used to serve the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and then one day the Prophet sallallahu where it is and asked him, you know, the asked me for anything, you know, I want to reward you, I want to give you something, and the man said that he had also the law, I just want to be close to you in your companionship in Jenna. So, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said,

01:06:11--> 01:06:16

then, help me by increasing your soju

01:06:17--> 01:07:07

meaning if you want to be close to me in my companionship in the Hereafter, then you must first be close to Allah subhanaw taala Alright, you must first be close to Allah, you must do such the first a lot of such and then Allah subhanaw taala will grant you that station, that station Uranus, we also learn the Hadees that any Muslim, when he does, when he performs a sajida even one such that, then Allah subhanaw taala raises his rank because of that, right. And Allah also erases his sin because of that. So for every search that that you perform, you increase in your rank, right? The meaning you draw closer to Allah subhana wa Tada. And then of course, besides Salah other

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

obligations as well, because after these, we learn that my servant does not draw close to me through anything except what I have obligated him with. So whether it is Salah, or it is a cat or it is fasting or it is being beautiful towards your parents, any obligations on you, when you fulfill them, that is how you draw closer to Allah. And then after the obligation you increase a voluntary deeds, because in that same Hadith it has mentioned that the servant draws, you know continues to perform the voluntary deeds right until he is very close to Allah subhana wa Tada. So, so, no waffle as well. And then sadaqa right meaning even when you give charity, when you are giving sadaqa give

01:07:59--> 01:08:48

it in order to be closer to Allah so in Surah kotoba verse number 99 we learn that women are robbing my umino biLlahi well yo mill were 30 Luma Yun filco Kuru Bharat in her in the law that this person when he spends he spends in order to find closeness to Allah subhanaw taala so it is said Allah in the hakuba to LA home Yes, it will be a means of a closeness for that meaning they will find Korb to Allah through the southern catheter giving so when you're giving a donation you know a charity that give it you know what that feeling? Yeah, Allah I want to be closer to you. Right? Don't give it with a feeling that okay, I might as well give this person something so that they leave me alone.

01:08:49--> 01:08:58

Right? No, give it with that. eagerness that y'all I want to be closer to you. Yeah, Allah be pleased with me. I'm giving this for your sake, you'll be pleased with me.

01:08:59--> 01:09:46

And then after that, your sin, meaning excellence, generosity, doing whatever you're doing in the best way for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala as though you can see him in so to Allah 556 it has mentioned in the Rahmatullahi curry boomin and Merson in the mercy of Allah is close to those who do who work with excellence. And then the wicked remembrance of Allah because whenever you call upon Allah subhana wa tada we learn for colonial corkum right you remember me I will remember you. in Hades we learned that a lost part artist says what Anna Mara who either the colony, I am with him meaning with the slave when the slave remembers me. So you remember Allah and you will find

01:09:46--> 01:09:47

closeness to Allah subhanaw taala.

01:09:49--> 01:10:00

Also Toba repentance in solitude is 61. We learned that the Prophet of Allah he said to his people that seek forgiveness from a

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

Law repented to him indeed he is corrib he is near. So repent to Allah and you will find closeness to Allah.

01:10:11--> 01:10:53

And then take little steps even no matter how insignificant you think a good deed might be, don't be little it because you don't know because of which good deed, you will find closeness to Allah soprano Parata also calling people to Allah because when you call others to Allah, you will find closeness to Allah. Even though Josie said that unless that who corba mean who do not seek closeness to Allah? Don't you want to be close to Allah. And if that is the case, then flush the hill be the lalla theory but here are they get busy in leading his slaves to Allah.

01:10:54--> 01:11:36

Meaning if you really want to find closeness to Allah, then strive to lead people to Allah, tell them good things, right? share good things with them, remind them of who Allah is help people connect with Allah, help them see his blessings and his mercy, right. And when you will do that you will find closeness to Allah subhanaw taala yourself also and then serve humanity, meaning serve the creation of Allah subhanaw taala in the sense that you help them because when you will help them you will find closeness to Allah. In other words, we learn that on the Day of Judgment, Allah will say to a person that all son of Adam, I was unwell and you did not come to visit me and that person will

01:11:36--> 01:11:43

say your job, how would I come to visit you when you are the lord of you know, you are the Lord meaning

01:11:44--> 01:12:20

how that person will be confused and a loss punctata will say that, did you not know that such and such servant of mine was unwell. And if you had gone to visit him, you would have found me near him, meaning you would have found closeness to me by visiting this person, right. And then food is mentioned. And then water is mentioned. So when you help people when you help those who are weak, then this is how you find closeness to Allah subhanaw taala as well. Then

01:12:21--> 01:13:09

through peran because in a Hadees we learn that there are people who are who are ullas special people, right? Hello ma ha Sato Who are they their idol Quran, they are the people of the Quran. So the more you know, time you spend with the Quran, reciting it, memorizing it, trying to understand it, you know, in different ways when you spend time with the salon. That is how you find you draw closer to Allah subhana wa tada and then also visit the masjid. Right these days, of course, it's a different situation. But unfortunately, you know, I've heard recently that in some massages because you have to register in advance in order to go pray slot to Joomla You know, there are people who

01:13:09--> 01:13:54

are not registering well in time, and because of that, they are missing tomorrow after tomorrow after tomorrow. So it has been months and they have not gone for Joomla at all. And he This is something very frightening, that people are losing that habit completely. So make a point if you're local must have requires that you register in advance, make a point to do that set a reminder on your phone, you know, you know, make a point to be a regular attendant of you know, a regular visitor of the masjid because in a Hadees we learned that Allah subhanaw taala will say on the Day of Judgment, they know Gilani Where are my neighbors, amen Gilani, where are my neighbors? And the

01:13:54--> 01:14:41

angels will say you're up any who could be who could be that and the last panel title will say a net remodel Masjid, where are the people who inhabited the massage? Right the mosques Where are they? Because they will be granted closeness to Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment. And then of course, part of this is to do those actions that lead one to the shade of the throne on the Day of Judgment, right for example, giving Southern very privately so that you know when a person gives with one hand, the other hand does not even find out. Likewise, remembering the lie in private and crying out of fear of him and the prophets of Allah who were at his center mentioned other deeds as

01:14:41--> 01:14:59

well. Now, we should also strive to be when the last panel thought his buddy we should also strive to be of those who are more come up right those who are granted nearness or stations of nearness to Allah subhanaw taala. And who are these people there? These are people who are

01:15:00--> 01:15:40

conscious of him right because in a coma, coma in the law he Akaka Indeed, the most honorable of you, near Allah are those who are most those who have most taqwa of Allah. Right? The macabre slaves of Allah, those granted nearness to Allah are those who fear Allah. The angels are mentioned in the Quran, that woman has yet to speak. They're afraid of Allah, you have fallen out of bahaman fold him, they are afraid of their Lord. They the righteous fear, the day of judgment, also the look the macabre boon, those who are specially near Allah, they fear the day of judgment as well.

01:15:41--> 01:16:30

We learn in a hadith and Muslim that Mammon mela kin mukha Robin, there is no angel, that that is near meaning that has a station of nearness. And then other things are mentioned, except that he fears the day up, you know, on the day of jamara. Why? Because the Day of Judgment is supposed to happen on the day of Friday. So we should check ourselves that are we among them? Or do we want to be at the mukarram? And if that is the case, do we have these qualities within us. And then also, the mccobb are those who are humble no matter what they do, meaning they never feel arrogant about their good deeds. They're always humbled before Allah. When Allah subhanaw taala has studied this

01:16:30--> 01:17:14

also means that we should seek the company of those who are close to Allah, in sort of calfire 28, the Prophet sallallahu Urdu cinemas told was with nepsac, amar levina, their owner above and below that he or she, you read on average, that you should stay in the company of those people who remember a line the morning in the evening seeking his space, you stay in their company, right? So do not distance yourself from them. consult them, work with them, spend time with them. And the people who are distant from Allah, meaning who don't remember Allah, who are too busy with the world, then you should also be distant from them. Because if you spend more and more time with them,

01:17:14--> 01:17:53

you're going to get influenced by them. So check your company, the people that you surround yourself with the people that you spend time with these days, we are spending time digitally together, right? So on social media, check yourself what kind of posts are you reading? Right? What types of people are you following? What is it that they're reminding you of? Are they're reminding you of Black Friday deals? Are they're reminding you of shopping? Are they constantly reminding you of this trend and that trend? And what to wear and what not to wear? And how to do your makeup and how to do your lashes in a new way and you know how to how to dress etc? Is this it? I just worldly things? Or are

01:17:53--> 01:18:40

they also reminding you of the hereafter? Are they also reminding you of Allah subhanaw taala. So we want to be the company of those who are close to Allah, not those who are distant from Allah. In, in in the sorry, in a Hadees we learn about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if the robot is Sara, the hour is drawing near. Willa is dead, when A is dead to Nestle, Allah dunya illa hilsa. And people only increase in their greed for the world. The hour the day of judgment is coming near and the people are only increasing in their greed for this world. And as they are increasing their greed for the world, when I is there do not mean avoid elaborate. They're only becoming more

01:18:40--> 01:19:33

distant from Allah with every other Billa. So we don't want to be like that, that we become distant from Allah by getting lost in the world. So when Allah subhanaw taala is AlKhateeb, how is it that we can call upon Allah? First of all, let us ask Allah subhanaw taala for eternal nearness to him. Right. and here we can see that there are of ESEA where she prayed a little bit earlier in the debate and Viljoen oh my lord, build for me a house near you in Jamaica, I want a house near you in Jenna, the house in Jana because that house is permanent, and a house near you because the ultimate goal is eternal nearness to Allah. Because that is where success is. Secondly, pray for the ability

01:19:33--> 01:19:44

to do what brings newness to Allah. So there's they're all part of which is a Luca hub book. We're hooked Burma you have book we're have baramulla new karela
