Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim what's the latter was Salam ala rasulillah Karim rubbish Rahi sadi way a silly angry Wild Rock that and melissani yufka who Cali Allah Matthew Colby was sadly Sani was roots of him at the Colby amin Yoruba I mean, inshallah we will continue with our series of the Beautiful Names of Allah the Exalted, the most excellent names a smell Allah who has now and today in sha Allah We will be sending a Haffield both of these names and half and a half eels. They occur in the Quran, in fact, both of them, each of them occurs three times in the Quran. So Allah subhanaw taala says in Surah, two hedger in national rozella Vicar what
in Allahu Allah haffi allude that indeed we are the ones who have revealed the message meaning the Quran, and indeed we are the ones who are its guardians. So Haffield means guardian or protector, in sort of use of verse number 64. It is mentioned for law who hired on half the law, that Allah is the best guardian or protector in total MBI and number 82. So a man or his son has mentioned and some of the unique gifts that Allah subhanaw taala had given him where even the jinn would work under him. So Allah subhanaw taala says regarding that that will Kunal Allah home healthy lien that we are the ones who were keeping an eye on them. So Haffield is watcher, Guardian protector. Now when it comes
to the name Haffield, of course that is also mentioned in the Quran, in Surah, to the ayah number 57. It is said in the rugby Allah cliche in her field that indeed, my lord is the preserver of everything The Guardian, the keeper of everything into Csaba, i a 21. Also it is mentioned what a book Allah Konishi in her field. And your Lord is a guardian over everything and in sort of the shoot off Finally, in Iowa number six, it is mentioned that when levina Taha Domine dooney Alia Allah Who have you learned early him, that those who have taken others as, as God's besides Allah as as their protectors meaning they seek their protection they seek to please them, then the fact is
that it is Allah who is happy over them It is Allah who, who actually preserves and guards and protects them. It is not their fault the deities who are sustaining them who are preserving their lives. No it is actually Allah subhanaw taala who is preserving them because he is Haffield the protector the keeper off everything. So we see that these names occur several times in the Quran. Now, one difference that we should know between the names half and half field is that how field is one who does his right and her field is one who does a lot of hair. And you will notice this in a lot of the names of Allah subhanaw taala. So for example, we have a love affair and love food. Raw
Food is one who forgives and raw food is the one who forgives a lot. So when you have multiple names, all right, coming from the same route that shows the frequency and and the the great extent to which Allah subhanaw taala does the actions that are that that are that are taught through these through these names. So Allah
Also panel partner doesn't just protect or preserve, you know a few things, he is so perfect, he is so powerful, he is so merciful, he is so knowledgeable, he is so attentive, that he guards and protects and preserves every single thing in existence. So, the multiple names coming from the same route show how true This fact is for Allah, the Exalted and it shows them obala the great extent to which Allah subhanaw taala does the action that is mentioned in these names. Now, let's look at the meaning the concept of HIV, what exactly is HIV, because we see that both of these names come from the word HIV meaning the one who does HIV. So, HIV flow shape, here flows shaped to to guard
something to preserve something is generally how it is translated, hitless shape is first of all, to be attentive towards something, basically, we see that HIV is actually the opposite of misia lucianne is to forget a right to be negligent, to not be attentive towards something. So heavy is to be attentive towards something to remember something to know something and look after it to not be negligent regarding something. So for example, when it is said, that happy little earner that so and so has, have you heard the quote on what does that mean that they have memorized it, so they know it and they remember it. And the concept of the health of the Quran is not that, you know, you you go
to a health school for like two years you memorize the put on, and then you move on and you forget about it, Haffield, you see the concept of HIV is what that you are constantly engaged in the act of preserving the lawn in your memory, right. So that means that you are very attentive, you are constantly trying to remember right to not lose what you have memorized to not forget what you have memorized. It's it's a very active verb, right to to remember, to retain, to be attentive towards something. Secondly, the word have also means to preserve something, meaning to preserve it from perishing or from getting lost. So it means seanna meaning to preserve something from perishing or
becoming lost. And then thirdly, the word health also means to guard or protect something. So for example, it is said heavy load man, but so and so, guarded the wealth and by wealth, what is what is meant is camels or cattle. And what that means is that he, he, he defended them, he guarded them, he protected them, he looked after them, he he made sure that, you know, there were eating sufficiently, he made sure that there were no dangers over there. So have is to diligently guard and diligently maintain something. This is the concept of his. And it's a very active concept in the sense that you're constantly attentive, constantly mindful, and and you're using all of your
resources and abilities to make sure that what you're guarding what you are preserving, is safe and secure. And by that you make sure that it is not lost, and that it does not go waste and that it does not perish. This is the concept of health. Now who is Haffield halfhill is keeper preserver, one who is attentive, one who guards and protects. And when we're talking about the names of Allah halfhill and Hatfield, then I want you to remember four points. inshallah, we'll go into the detail of what it that what these names mean for Allah exalted, but I want you to remember four words when it comes to
these names. That first of all have a little heavier, they mean watcher. Okay, watcher, meaning one who is fully aware, watching attentive does not forget. Secondly, preserver or defender, meaning one who preserve something from getting lost or wasted. Thirdly, one who is diligent and attentive.
And then finally, Guardian, meaning one who is entrusted with guarding something
so when Allah
subhanaw taala is unhealthy and unhappy. What does that mean with respect to Allah? Now, first of all this means that Allah subhana wa tada is the preserver. He is the guardian of his creation. And this means the entire creation, the entire existence, because nothing exists except that it is the creation of Allah, that Allah supper, meaning if there's any creation, it is there because Allah subhanaw taala brought it into existence. So when Allah is unhealthy, unhealthy, this means that he is watching his creation, he is guarding and preserving and protecting and defending his entire creation.
She has already said that he is the one who guards and protects what he has created. And his knowledge has perfectly encompassed what he has brought into existence, you see, our weakness is that we all things but we don't even remember what we own right. So, especially if you have a large property or if you have a lot of things, you know, that you purchased something once upon a time you remember that you put it somewhere, but you are not able to recall, you are not able to find it right. So if we all things our knowledge is deficient, our memory is deficient, right we lose things in plain sight, but Allah azza wa jal is above any such weakness, one cannot bukannya see here your
Lord never ever forgets. So, he, he does not forget any of his creatures, he knows their circumstances, he knows their location, he knows what they need, and he is protecting them, preserving them constantly. And consider the perfection of Allah subhanaw taala that, first of all, when he is protecting everything, this means that he has perfect knowledge. And this means that he has perfect power, right. And then this means that he is guarding and preserving each creature differently. Because if you think about it, what what is a means of preserving the life of one creature could be the very means of, of killing another creature, right of causing its death. So for
example, we as human beings, we cannot live inside of water. Right? If we were to be underwater for a long time, we would we would die we would suffocate to death, right? But at the same time, we have other creatures who as soon as they're taken out of water, they will die. So think about how Allah subhanaw taala is guarding and preserving each creature in unique and different ways. And this shows his knowledge, this shows his perfect power, and he is guarding preserving each creature for as long as he wants, meaning when he decides that a creature should no longer be alive, then that is when that creature will cease to exist. And what is also amazing is the fact that he is taking care of
this entire creation this entire existence, and he does not become tired or burdened by their constant preservation in the Quran in surah Csaba is 21 Allah subhanaw taala says what aboukir Allah cliche in her feels that your Lord is happy, he is Guardian over everything. So there is no of them, no tiny particle except that Allah subhanaw taala is guarding and preserving it, you see there are things that we can see with our eyes. Right? And, you know, we see that okay, you know, for example, a human being or a bird or cat or, you know, an ant, it is alive, you know, a mouse, etc. These things are alive because, you know, they have oxygen, they have light, they have food, nutrition,
anything that could be dangerous, you know, for their existence, they are protected against those things. So, you know, that's understandable. But Allah subhanaw taala protects us in ways that are beyond our knowledge in ways that are beyond our awareness even.
e. Consider everything that's going on inside of our bodies.
We don't even know we have no clue as to what is going on inside our bodies, you know, just within the brain, right so many connections are constantly taking place, who is ensuring, who is making sure who is making sure that you know those connections are established, right that the right hormone is released and have the right quantity, the right amount, because an increase or decrease of certain hormones can cause serious problems within the body. Right. So, realize over here that Allah subhanaw taala is preserving and protecting his creation in ways that we cannot even imagine, in ways that we are not even aware of. And this shows Allah subhanho parnas perfect knowledge, his
perfect ability is perfect power. In Surah Taha, I have 52 it is mentioned that about the knowledge of Allah that color Elmo harinder a beefy keytab layer will not be when I answer, my Lord does not make a mistake, he does not err, nor does he forget. And if we are ever, you know, responsible over guarding something or someone, how often do we make mistakes? And how often do we forget any, if anyone here is, is a parent, any I'm sure you have regrets over the mistakes that you have made in it how you forgot to do something really important for your children. And that caused them to suffer either momentarily short for short term or for long term. This is our weakness and Allah or zoologia
constantly guarding preserving everything. Now you'll be happy when our young sir.
like I mentioned earlier that the preservation of the creation does not tire him It does not burden him. As we learned in it, you could see that when are your older who have rumah that guarding preserving the sky and the earth is something that does not tire Allah soprano thought it does not it's it's not burdensome upon him. And our weaknesses that if we have to look after something, even for a short duration, we get exhausted, if not physically, at least mentally, we need to break right we need some time to ourselves. Allah subhanaw taala is above that. And remember that Allah subhanaw taala is a preserver of each thing for as long as he wants. So things are only safe and preserved
and protected for as long as Allah subhana wa tada wants them to be safe and protected.
In sudo, to hedge a number 65 almost pontarlier mentions the sky, that we're humans equals summer and Takara. Oddly enough, the evening that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who is holding up the sky. And the sky a sama doesn't just mean you know, the blue sky that we see above us summit also refers to what is above us anything. So this includes, you know, stars and different planets in the moon and the sun. So all of these, you know, massive celestial bodies that are up there, right, who is keeping them, you know, in place so that they don't fall upon the earth? Because we know that if they were to fall upon the earth, what would happen a mass extinction, right in the evening except
by his permission in sudo to ambia or 31 and 32. Allah subhanaw taala says would you feel or we're aware sia and Tomita behave, and we have placed in the earth firmly anchored mountains lest the earth should sway with them, meaning Allah subhanaw taala has stabilized the earth so that we don't feel that it is moving. Right and he has also, you know, prevented it from constantly shaking in such a way that would affect us, right? in such a way that our lives would be disturbed. When you are an Effie haffi judge in sobre la lomita don't watch your under sama assoc from my phone. And we have made the sky a protected ceiling. Meaning the sky is such that it is it is like a ceiling. It
is something that is protecting us from what is what is beyond. Right. Just as when you have a roof over your head.
You know it when it's raining or it's snowing, there's a storm outside, you're safe inside. And just like that Allah subhanaw taala has put has made the sky such over the earth that it is like a ceiling
So the different things that are happening, the different movements, the different celestial bodies, etc, that are that are going about in space, they're not constantly falling upon the earth. Right? There is a protection that Allah subhanaw taala has put around the earth. And Allah subhanaw taala tells us in cynical ambia, I have 42 the full maniac that will come belatedly when I heard him and I'm like, man, who is it that guards you, who protects you in the night in the day against a recommend meaning if Allah subhanaw taala did not protect you? If Allah subhanaw taala did not preserve you, then what would you do? And especially the night and the day is mentioned? Right? You
see what happens in the night in the darkness? Right? When we are not able to see what dangers there are right in front of us, or when we are sleeping, when we're not able to guard ourselves? Who is it that preserves us? You see there are there are things that we do ourselves, meaning we have autonomy, we have the ability, for example, to move our hand, right to walk away.
And we do these things in order to protect ourselves, right? So for example, if there is fire, right, we will move away. Right? We did this action to protect ourselves. But then there are, you know, things that are happening inside of our bodies that we don't have any control over. These are not voluntary actions, right? These are systems that Allah subhanaw taala has created within our bodies, and we don't control them, they happen on their own. Right? They happen by by the permission of Allah. And our existence depends on them. For example, you don't think every single time that you breathe, okay, let me inhale, right? And you don't think every single time Okay, let me exhale,
right? Likewise, when it comes to the pumping of your heart, there is no you know, conscious decision that you make, okay? My heart should pump all right now, okay, the blood should travel to this part of my body. And now that part of the body, we don't have control over our liver, our stomach, the you know, the organs that are inside, and they're functioning by the permission of Allah by the command of Allah, so that we can live. We can exist. So cool mayor, Khloe khumba lately when I heard him in a rock, man, and if Allah subhanaw taala, did not protect you, if Allah subhanaw taala did not preserve you, how would you exist? How would you live? How would you, you know,
continue, you wouldn't. And also remember that Allah subhanaw taala, he preserves each creature, by guiding it to what it should do, in order to live in order to exist.
Any there's different ways in which Allah subhanaw taala preserves and protects his his creation. And one of the ways is that he guides each creature as to what it should do in order to stay alive. So for example, instead of Haha, I have 50, we learn a lovely Arthur Kula Shay, in Hong Kong, who somehow hada that Allah is the one who has given each creature its form, its unique form, its Hulk.
And then he also guided each creature. So for example, we see you know, young animals who are not, you know, with with their mothers, but they know what to do. They know how to drink, they know how to eat, they know where to find their food, right? They know what is dangerous, they know what is not dangerous. So who is it that has put this awareness in each creature? Any, there are things that we learn through trial and error, right? through experience, but not everything. There are things which Allah subhanaw taala has put within our instincts, and not just human beings, but also animals and birds. Right, that they don't learn through trial and error all the time. Because if that was
the case, that no animal would be alive, right? They don't continue to live, you know, with their parents because you know, that's not how Allah subhanaw taala has created them. So under the our pa Kula Shay in Hong Kong who somehow had
and then also consider the fact that there are so many opposite things that that exist, right. So for example, there is fire there is water, even at the you know, at at
the molecular level, right there, there are things, you know, that one will be destroyed. If it comes in contact with its opposite, right? One will cease to exist if it comes in contact with its opposite, right? But I'll also probably throw out a half of unhappiness is maintaining, preserving each unique creature, right? Even though its opposite is its opposite exists. So for example, all all fire could be extinguished by the amount of water that's on the earth or all water could be,
you know, evaporated, given how, how hot the earth is becoming, right. But it's amazing how there are so many contrary things right opposing forces opposing energies that Allah subhanaw taala has created yet he is preserving each one of them from their from their opposites, right. Secondly, when Allah subhanaw taala is unhealthy and heavy This means that he is the Guardian, the preserver of his book, as well. So first thing we learned Allah soprano part is the guardian or preserver of his creation. Secondly, he is the Guardian the preserver off his column of his speech of the book that he has revealed. So in so the hedged item or nine we learn in non unit Zelda vichara we're in Allahu
Allah Have you learned that indeed, We are the ones who have revealed the message and we are the ones who are going to guard it and protected and preserve it. So it will not be you know, no matter how much people try to alter it, to change it, to to, to cause to create doubts in it, they will never succeed because Allah the the preserver has taken the responsibility to preserve his book.
When Allah subhanaw taala is unhealthy on her field. This also means that he preserves the deeds of his slaves, meaning the actions that we perform, whether they're good or they're bad, right? Allah soprano Tara is preserving them. He's having them recorded for our own recompense in circle infra thar I attend to 12. It has mentioned we're in our late con, la Have you lead that indeed appointed over you are guardians kirana, and Cathy bean. And these are angels who are honorable, and what are they doing Cathy been there writing your lamona metaphor alone, they know whatever that you are doing. So when you do something, they write it down. When you say something, they write it down. And
so often it happens that we forget what we have said, we forget what we have written. But Allah subhanaw taala has it all enumerated in sort of magetta, Allah is six, it has mentioned ourselves a lot when a su, Allah has enumerated at all and they forgot it, and we forget our actions. But just because we forgot them doesn't mean that we never did them. Allah subhanaw taala has it all enumerated and what is written, remember this is either going to be in our favor or against us, because either these deeds are going to be a means of happiness and joy for us on the Day of Judgment, or they're going to be a source of great regret and embarrassment for us on the Day of
Judgment. And this is why it is so important that we constantly seek forgiveness from Allah soprano. In this we learned that whoever wants to be pleased when he sees his record of deeds, then he should fill it with a lot of his default. Right? Meaning he should fill it with a lot of seeking forgiveness from Allah soprano.
Because yes, we are not perfect right? We will constantly make mistakes we will disappoint ourselves we will disappoint the people around us. But if we sprinkle our day and overnight with is too far, with seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala that is too far is in a written all over our record of beads than this will be a means of joy for us. This will be a means of hope for us. Then when Allah subhanaw taala is unhelpful and Haffield This also means that he has appointed angels as guardians over people, guardians over people yes in order to protect them in order to keep them safe. Any every limb of ours, right in fact all around us in Allah subhanaw taala has a
pointed angels were constantly guarding us protecting us. So that no harmful or dangerous thing, you know, harms us. And if we think about it, there's so many things within our environment that could potentially kill us. Right? Things that we see things that we don't see. I mean, there's shaitan right? So Allah subhanaw taala has appointed angels over us in order to protect us insert Aurora, the IRA number 11. It is mentioned logomark peba to me mania de he woman kullfi Yeah, for Luna human amarilla. That Allah subhanaw taala has appointed more people in angels that come in succession that come in shifts, right, and these angels are before a person and also behind a person, meaning
guarding him from all around. And these angels Yeah, for Luna woman umbrella, they guard the person by the command of Allah. So then, you know, if a person wonder is that how come I got injured? Right? How come I got sick? How come I got hurt? Well, that's because the angel was instructed to remove his, his protection from you in that matter at that moment, because of which you got harmed. And that happens only by the permission of Allah. And that happens for you know, a wisdom a benefit that Allah subhanaw taala knows. So you know what, when that happens, where we get harmed, where we get,
you know, sick, etc, then we shouldn't have questions about Oh, how come Allah did not protect me? Allah is half in her field. What what I need to do is, is reflect over myself, right my actions, and perhaps reflect over what you know what I am being taught in this moment.
Then when Allah subhanaw taala is in half of her fields, this also means that he especially guards and protect his friends, his Olia, meaning those who believe those who befriend Allah, then Allah subhanaw taala also guards them and protect them. She has already said that Allah and Hatfield guards his friends, from falling into sins, from falling into destructive matters, meaning matters that will, that will bring them harm in this life. And in the next insert to hedge i a 38. Allah subhanaw taala says in the law, you death you are near levena amaroo that Indeed, Allah defends those people who believe Allah is on their side, he defends them, he guards them. And this is
especially in regard to their faith. In sort of Ibrahim I 27. Allah says you sub bit Allahu levina amanu Allah subhanaw taala grants firmness and stability to those people who believe miracoli Sabbath with the firm word which is La ilaha illa Allah, fill higher the dunya will fill
in worldly life, Allah subhanaw taala grants them firmness, and he also grants them firmness in the hereafter. And that begins with the questioning in the grave. Because remember that when a person dies, and they're buried, then two angels come and they and they question that person. Right? They question him that Who is your Lord? What is your religion? Who is your profit? Right? So the person who has a man who has faith who has knowledge, right? What is his response? That my Lord is Allah? My my, my messenger? Is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam my Deen is Islam. And in different Hadees, we learned that asked for the hypocrite, right? Or the person who does not believe he will
say, I don't know, I don't know. Right? So meaning that when a person is questioned in the grave, there are some people who will be given firmness and confidence so they will be able to answer these questions. And then there are other people who will not be given that firmness, they will not be protected over there. Why? Because of the lack of faith. So Allah subhanaw taala, I'll have a half he protects he guards his friends in this life, and in the next life. And this isn't a number of different ways. First of all, he protects them against disbelief. He protects them, he saves them he guards them from falling into cowfish you know in circle and file verse number 24 Oh,
Most penultimate says, What alemu and nulla your Hulu Bane and Moto E, work on B. And you should know that Indeed Allah intervenes between a person and his heart. If you think about it, it's, you know, the voice of your heart. It's You are so connected with it. Right? But Allah subhanaw taala is able to intervene between between us and our heart Even. And even our boss or the Longhorn, who said that what this means is that you are who lubaina meaning ouabain and kufri,
that Allah subhanaw taala intervenes between the believer and disbelief, meaning when there are doubts that are creeping up in the heart, all right, or desires are overcoming the heart and what happens? Allah subhanaw taala intervenes over there. Allah subhanaw taala does not let such a heart influence the believer, Allah subhanaw taala does not allow such doubts and such desires to influence the believer. So, Allah protect the believer, right, that person that slave from his own shadow from his own evil, right, because we as human beings, we have the potential to do good and we also have the potential to do wrong we have good inside of us and also evil. This is why we ask a
rule to be conventionally Neff see that he or Allah I seek your protection from the evil of my soul, you protect me from my own heart. So warlow mu and Allahu lubaina model he will lb so if a person has a man and this is only because Allah subhanaw taala has protected that person
if a person has yet been conviction, it is because Allah subhanaw taala has protected that person
Allah soprano throttle to protect his righteous believers against sin so in total are off i a 201 it is mentioned in alladhina taco indeed those people who fear Allah either Mr. humppa if a minister you're planning to kill when a thought a visiting thought comes from shape line any it's a thought if is one that one that goes about what what that goes around, okay? Meaning it's a West USA all right it's it's that thought that idea the to to do something wrong, right and it's going around their head. What happens to that girl they remember for either home upset or and then they're able to see they're able to see that no, this is wrong. I cannot do it, I will not do it. So Allah
subhanaw taala protects his believing slaves, his friends from falling into sin. He brings them out of darkness in Surah Baqarah ir 257 it is mentioned Allah Hua Li You Latina amanu you Who did you mean to Allah? No, Allah is the friend of those who believe and he brings them out of darkness into light. Allah protectors believing slave from the tricks of shaitan also in certain national iron 99 it is mentioned in the Hulu a seller also plan on alladhina amanu. The trade line does not have any authority over those who believe where a lot of big immutable Kowloon and upon those who put their trust in their Lord. So when they put their trust in their Lord, that my Lord will protect me, my
Lord will guard me Yeah, Allah protect me from the evil of shape than Allah subhanaw taala and half and heavy guards them, protect them from the evil of shaitan.
So the names of Allah and halfhill and heavy E, there's so much to reflect, you know, in regard to them, that there's so much that we can think about there's so much that we can realize that how Allah subhanaw taala protects his slaves in so many different ways, against so many different dangers tangible and intangible. He protects them in ways that they can perceive. And he also protects them in ways that they cannot perceive. They'll never know. And he protects them from dangers that they're aware of and dangers that they have no idea about Allah and heavy and Haffield. So when Allah is the preserver the guardian of his slaves, what are we supposed to do? How is it
that we should worship our Lord? What is it that we should believe in?
What is it that we should do? The first important thing is that we should realize and believe
in, we should realize and believe the perfection. We should believe in the perfection of Allah the Exalted because
Think about it. Allah alone, Allah had had Subhana, who He alone is preserving the skies and the earth and everything within them. He is the one who is causing them to exist to continue on protecting each creature from any dangerous factor causing it to live on until he, he he wills any, how great is his knowledge, how great is his power? How great is His mercy.
Secondly, when Allah subhanaw taala is an halfhill and her field, then we should realize that protected is what Allah soprano thought protects my fools, what is protected or who is protected is who the one who has been granted protection by Allah, meaning there is no protection without Allah, there is no safety without Allah exalted.
Because we see that at the same time, there are things that are being protected. And then there are other things that are perishing, right? So for example, in certain fields, I have one to five, we learn about how the people who came to destroy the Kaaba, how Allah subhanaw taala destroyed those people. So Allah subhanaw taala, preserved and protected his house, right. And at the same time, he took his protection away from those people. So protected is not the one who has a lot of means to protect himself. Because these people, this army came with elephants, they came with weapons, they came fully prepared, right, they had a lot of wealth, a lot of power, but their power, their wealth
was not enough to protect them. Why? Because they did not have protection from Allah or zoologia.
So there is no safety, there's no concept of safety, without Allah subhanaw taala. And if a person is, you know, for example, doing something wrong, and and they are openly opposing a lot, and still they're safe, right? Then remember that this is only, you know, by the will of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala is the one who has granted them that safety, and whenever he wants, he can take it away.
Then thirdly, when Allah subhanaw taala is unhelpful Haffield, then we should
realize that safety and protection of any kind is only by his tofi. Right? Which means that, for example, if a person has a man in their heart, right, they believe they have conviction, they have, you know, a strong desire to obey a law, they're able to do good, they're able to recite Quran, right? Then this is by the Delphic of Allah, not because you know, you are something special, and that you, you're so great, and you're just, you know, a great person, you know, no, the fact is, that if your heart is protected, if your limbs are protected, in in a tangible way, or in the intangible way, spiritually or physically, right, then that is by the gift of Allah. So acknowledge
that, and thank Allah subhanaw taala be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala for the special protection that he has granted you
then when Allah subhanaw taala is a heavy and heavy field, this also means that we should seek His protection whenever we find ourselves in a vulnerable situation, we find ourselves weak, we find ourselves surrounded by, you know, dangerous things, right, that we don't know, if, you know, we, you know, we don't know that, that that something is carrying a certain disease that could infect us that could kill us. Right? And this fear is something that we're living with on a daily basis. Right stepping outside of the house even is frightening, coming in contact with any person, right? Is is frightening. So, this is a time when we should in fact every moment we should be seeking protection
with almost a penalty that y'all Allah, you protect me, you guard me because I am not able to guard myself, right? I mean, yes, we we take those means we wash our hands and we you know, stay six feet apart and we wear the facemask etc. We don't you know,
you know, going any social gatherings etc. But there comes a point where we find ourselves so weak
That, you know, fine, you're not going outside for unnecessary things, you're going outside to buy food. Right? But what if there is, you know, traces of the virus or on the food that you're purchasing, right on, on the money that you're handling right on the door that you're opening, any these things are beyond your power and ability and if you start obsessing over every little thing, he is our life would become extremely difficult. This doesn't mean that we become careless, believing in unhappy and half does not mean that we become careless. No, it means that we, we adopt all of those resources that Allah subhanaw taala has provided us with to protect ourselves, but we
put our trust in who we put our trust in unhealthy and heavy that he or Rob I have done what I possibly could write and now beyond this, you protect me, you guard me. And you see, we're so concerned about our physical health.
Our spiritual health also is something that we must be really concerned about.
So how is it that we can seek protection with Allah subhanaw taala by protecting what he has entrusted us with? When Allah is how I feel her feel, then we should also be Haffield happy meaning we should also guard what Allah has entrusted us with. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to our beloved in our best, that if Allah yeah felica that be mindful of Allah and Allah will protect you.

So you do your part, and Allah subhanaw taala will do his if Allah Fabrica. Now, what are some things that Allah subhanaw taala has entrusted us with that we must guard we must pay attention to, we must preserve, if we want his protection. First of all,
we have to be mindful of our Salah, if we want Allah subhanaw taala to protect us, we have to make sure that we are doing our part and the first thing is the most important obligation that Allah has imposed upon us and that is Allah. So Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah, Baqarah 238 haffi Lu or no Salah wati wa Salatu was diligently maintained diligently guard your prayers, especially the middle prayer, and that is the sort of Salah right and this verse is actually mentioned within verses that talk about divorce. Right, and, and such issues. So, if you think about it, any when it comes to our dealings with people also, right, we want to feel safe with people, right, we want to feel safe
around them, that they should not say what is hurtful, they should not do what is hurtful and harmful for us. That they should be fair with us. Right?

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said regarding booboo, that lane you Haffield our island will do II in movement that no one will guard will do, except for the believer. Meaning the one who is truly a believer, the one who is strong in his belief, such a person will certainly guard his will do.
Then part of what Allah subhanaw taala has entrusted us to guard is his law. And he the commands that He has given into to Toba is 112 a lost power with our dimensions the qualities of the people to whom He has promised Jenna, right. And one of their qualities is we'll have you Luna Lee who do the law. They diligently guard the limits set by Allah and he they are very attentive, that this is a limit that Allah said, We must preserve it, we must guard it. Right? They're not negligent about it. You see when it comes to the rights of people, different people our own rights, we become forget about rights of people, when it comes to doing certain things that we like, we become so hard core.
You know, for example, some people are very particular when they're cooking, that every ingredient should be, you know, of the perfect amount. Right? And it's fine, it's good to follow recipes, exactly. If you are, if you are looking for a you know, certain result. But there are times when you don't have you no access to every single ingredient, ne Subhana Allah, we will make sure that when we are filling the cup with flour, you know, if it's supposed to be packed, we will press it down, if it's supposed to be lightly filled, we will spoon it in and then you know remove any extra from from the top. And we become so you know so careful. That no it's supposed to be an eighth of a
teaspoon and not half, right? It's supposed to be an eighth of a teaspoon, not a quarter. And I'm not saying this is not important. It's good. But you know, we were so attentive when it comes to food. Why aren't we attentive when it comes to the rights of Allah? Why? Why do we become so negligent? Well, how few Luna Nero do the law, we must be careful, the laws that Allah has revealed. These laws are not to be rejected, and to be ignored, and that we live our lives as if these laws don't exist. No, these these matters, we should be extremely attentive about, you know, for example, when it comes to backbiting, is it something that Allah has forbidden? Clearly, right in inserter,
who durata is mentioned when a young the Barbican Baba that you should not backbite each other clear command. But what happens when we're talking to our friends when we're sitting with our you know, family members, we allow ourselves right to to engage in gossip, we allow ourselves to mock, you know, someone, this is where we are compromising right on the laws that Allah has revealed. This is the opposite of will help illuminate her do the law. And if someone reminds us, oh, that's backbiting, right? That that's not cool. We shouldn't be doing that we shouldn't be saying that. Immediately we got offended. This is not the way of those who are particular about the rights of
Allah will have you lunati who do the law.
Then part of what Allah subhanaw taala has entrusted us with to guard is you know our bodies. That includes our tongues what we say our eyes what we look at our ears, what we listen to our private parts, in all of our bodies, Allah subhana wa tada has and trusted us to guard them and guarding our bodies does not mean that we're you know, making sure that we're does not only mean that we are eating consciously and that we are exercising
We're taking our medication that's just taking care of the physical body. Right? I'm talking about what we say with our tongues what we listen to what we're looking at. These are things that we are expected to guard. Right? We learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said fogli cernak, guard your tongue, meaning do not use your tongue for what is for what Allah subhanaw taala does not like when it comes to the eyes, only meaning or your whole domain of sorry him tell the believing men that they should lower their eyes. Well, Kunal Minetti of Luton coming up sorry, hiner and that tell the believing women that they should also lower their gazes, right? Meaning that when a person
is not, is not looking, you know, appropriately in the sense that there there's, there's a feeling in the heart, which is not befitting, then at that time, lower your gaze, right if your eyes fall on something, that you should not be looking at someone's letter someone's confidential information someone's passcode right someone's pain that they're punching in as they're purchasing something with their card, and yet that time look away.

Now there are certain actions I'm going to I'm just going to take five more minutes inshallah. But there are certain actions
in about which we learn that when a person does them, they receive protection from Allah azza wa jal, right, so we want Allah subhanaw taala to protect us. How is it? What other actions can we do to to receive protection from Allah?

protection of Allah and this hadith is in Muslim diamond. All right?
What are these five things, whoever visits a sick person, whoever goes out with the funeral prayer, whoever goes out in the way of Allah. Right? And, and then there are other things that are also mentioned in another Hadees, whoever sits in his house and does not back by any person,
meaning he minds his own business, and he does not backbite other people, he's not engaged in gossip. So when a person does good things, then such a person receives protection from Allah subhanaw taala. Then remembering Allah, the vicar of Allah is a protection, right? It brings about special protection from Allah. We learned about how the person who remembers a lot is like what like, like a person who is in a strong fortress, right, you are fortified.

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever guarantees to me what is between his, his
jaws and what is between his legs, then I guarantee paradise for that person. Meaning you watch these two matters and agenda is guaranteed for you.
