Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
altavilla him in a shape line of rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Karim rubbish Rahi sadri were Sidley emri Dr. Tommy Lee Sani Yakubu Pali Allah Matthew Kirby was said that listen he was also him at the Colby Armenia Abdullah Al Ameen.
In sha Allah in today's class, we are going to look at three names of Allah, the Exalted, and these names are n ahead and Wahid and l witted. Now these names of Allah because they are similar in their meaning, this is a reason why we are studying them together. And all of these names convey the meaning of the fact that Allah subhanaw taala is one, he is single, he has no partner, he has no equal, and there is nothing at all that resembles him, that is equal to him that is similar to him. And we see that this is one of the core beliefs, this is one of the one one of the very clear messages that the Quran conveys. Over and over again, you need this message is conveyed to us
through the Quran, in almost every single surah any page of the Quran that you open you will see in it, the mention of, of the fact that Allah is one, in fact the name of Allah itself means Allah, the God, meaning, the concept of us have lordship or have being God in itself means that Allah is one that God is one alila the god meaning the only true God, the only real God, the only one who is actually truly God. So all of this means that Allah subhanaw taala is one he is single he is unique, and there is no one that is like him in any way whatsoever. So and this concept any yes it is mentioned very clearly in the Quran. But the fact that there are three names that we know off which
which refer to his absolute oneness shows what an important concept This is, and how important it is for us to believe in this in this concept in this fact that Allah is one. Now when we look at the names ahead a warhead and width, then we see that I had inshallah I'm going to go into I'm going to talk about the meaning of these words as well. But we see that the name I had means the single the single one and it occurs once in the Quran in surah airfloss where Allah subhanaw taala says boo hoo Allahu Ahad that say He is Allah who is one? Or who Allah who say the fact is that Allah is ahead that Allah is one. And this name as I mentioned, occurs only once in the Quran, then we see that the
name Allah had also means the one and it occurs 22 times in the Quran. And we see that in many places the name Allah has actually comes with the name alcohol. So for example, we see in sort of the word Allah subhanaw taala says poly levou Holly kukuli Shea say that Allah is the Creator of everything. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa ha and that he is a warhead, the single one, how the irresistible meaning that when he imposes his will, when he decides something, then there is no way that people can escape it, there is no way that people can avoid it. So, this is because a lie is a wide
and, and then thirdly, the name of winter. The unique one, this is a name that is mentioned only in the sooner. So in Hades we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah subhanaw taala has 99 names. He who commits them to memory would enter Paradise. And then he said what in the law how withdrawn and Indeed Allah is with you humble Witter, and he loves with
Winter, you know, it means odd number, meaning a number that cannot be divided by two. And,
and it's referring to the you know, the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala the uniqueness of Allah subhanaw taala. And in the Quran we see that where Allah subhanaw taala mentions a he takes an oath washa for you one what, that by the even and by the odd. So somewhat relevant, they said that a letter is referring to a width, and what is referring to Allah azzawajal So, that isn't that that is an interpretation. And if that is the case, then then the name and width is also mentioned in the Quran, but only once. However, the meaning the implication of these names, of course, the Quran is filled with that.
So let's look at the meaning of these names in detail. The first name that we're going to look at is a warhead. Now, the name of the warhead, you know, the word warhead itself means the number one. So you have warhead one is name two selesa three, so, Whitehead means one, all right, meaning not to not zero, not three, not four, not five, but one meaning in quantity one, and Whitehead also means the first because what is what comes first right. So, this is why allawah head is understood as
the first. So, alpha a well meaning the first one, so, there was no one before him. And also it means that why it means that he is one. So he is one in his, in his in his being the way he is made, meaning that there is there is no other like him. So there aren't two gods or three gods, there is only one God. So there is no one that is equal to him, no one that resembles him, as we learned in the Quran was ILA who come Illa Han, where he said, that your God is one God, meaning that is a fact that Allah is only one Allah is not to God is not two or three, God is only one and, and why he also shows that he is one meaning he he has always been one, meaning there was never a time that there
was another god, there was never a time that there were two gods or three gods and there will never be a time when there will be two gods or three gods. So, Allah had means that he has always been one and he will forever be one. So, there was never anyone who was equal to him and there will never be anyone who is equal to him. And this is the reason why we believe that Allah subhanaw taala does not even have a child, because having a child means that there is now someone who is like you, right or someone who has a part of you, right, who has you know, who who is a part of you, and who is now like you and they will grow up to be you know, similar to you equal to you, etc. So, a warhead means
that he has always been one and and he will always remain one.
Now, now, this is the meaning of why when we look at the name I had, I had means also that which is one that which is singular, but in the sense that that there is nothing that is similar to him, all right. So I had conveys the meaning of uniqueness, right uniqueness, that there is no one that is similar to him. So when we're talking about Allah azza wa jal being ahead This means that he is absolutely unique in his being in his attributes. So for example, you know, in words, you know, there could be certain words that we use to refer to Allah subhanaw taala. And then those words we also use to refer to people. So for example, in the Quran, we learned that Allah is a semir right
that he is ever hearing, he he listens, and the word Samir can also be used to refer to people, because people also listen people also hear, but this similarity is just in the word All right, in the enunciation in the in the it, this is the limitation of language. In reality, Allah subhanaw taala is ahead, meaning his listening is not like anyone else's listening
His hearing is not like anyone else's hearing. So he is an airhead, meaning he is absolutely unique, singular, in His perfection in his attributes. So this is why we see in certain airfloss that Cole who Allahu Ahad Allah who Samad lamb Yellin dweller, mula dweller Mya Kula who Khufu and the surah ends with the with the fact that with the with the mention of the fact that there is no one who is equal to him that that that that is like him. So, I had meaning singular, how in his attributes in his being, so, there is no one that resembles him
and then the name and with it with remains also single, but basically the word winter refers to something that cannot be divided alright. So, winter is an entity that cannot be divided. So, for example, it is said winter is malam yoosh farming garden, meaning a number that cannot be divided by two.
So, with the means that he has any no match no equal, he is unparallel, he is unequaled. Right. So, and with any, he, he cannot be divided into parts, and there is no one that can become like him equal to him,
that that can become his counterpart. So, all of these names in one way or another, they are teaching us of the fact that Allah subhanaw taala is one he is unique, there is no one like him. And this is why we believe in the concept of tow hate, right, though hate is to make one. Meaning, when it comes to, you know, the perfection when it comes to being God when it comes to being creator, that all of these attributes are singularly in Allah xojo such that, such that there is nothing like Allah, right, who could be equal to him or similar to him, and, and that all attributes of divinity are combined within him. So we see, you know, historically, people have believed people have held
different types of beliefs when it comes to the concept of God. Right, there is this idea that there are multiple gods, or that I know, there's the god of this power, and the God of that powers of the god of fertility and the God of rain and the God of, you know, wealth and this and that any each God has his own, or her own realm, right or domain. And they control that particular aspect. And this is completely contrary to the concept of no hate, though hate is when we said that Allah is one, that means that he has absolute power over everything. So you don't need to go to the God of this and the God of that, no, you go only to Allah subhanaw taala. And this concept is a very natural concept.
And it's a very logical concept. Any, this is imperfect, you know, a perfect alignment with the way that the universe functions, the way that the universe exists. Because if there were multiple gods, as we learned in the Quran, that if there were multiple gods, then you know, the skies and the earth would be left so that they would be ruined, completely ruined. And, you know, we can see this in our own lives that when, for example, multiple people have authority over something, each individual wants to exert his or her own power. And when that happens, then there is complete chaos. Right? So there needs to be very, very clear, you know, division of authority, right? And even then we see
that, you know, when when there's multiple people that you have to answer to, you get confused, because one person says, do this, the other person says, do that. So you don't know who to listen to. Right. So, you know, sometimes it happens, for example, in the family, that you know, children will go to the Father, the father will say one thing to go to the mother, the mother will say something different. Now, who do you listen to? Right, who, you know, somebody needs to make the final call, and this is why within a marriage, you know, it's the husband who has been given that, you know, that that that final that that authority to make the final call of the journey.
A woman Ireland Lisa, because if that were not the case, then the family would be in chaos. So, the concept of oneness of God is a very logical concept it makes sense. And, you know, if if the existence of the universe is an evidence that there is only one God, because, if if that was not the case, then you know, we learn for example, in Greek mythology and, and you know, other other, you know, religions that have existed about how there was a war between the gods and you know, this one fought with that one any, there would be constant warfare, right, there would be a struggle for power and that would cause the creation to suffer. So, this is illogical, that there should be
multiple Gods it is it is not possible to prove that, so, there is only one God. Now, when Allah subhanaw taala is one he is he is unaware he is unlimited, then what does that mean? This means, that first of all, Allah subhanaw taala is one and unique, he is single in his essence in his being. So, this means that there is no other that is like him, he is he is the only one of his kind, there is no other like him, which means that he has no child, no relative no partner, right?
No, no son, no daughter, no one that is like because he does not have an equivalent he does not have a pair he does not have a similarity. And this is something that we learn in intuitive airfloss that lumea Lee gwala Mulan, right that he,
you know, does not give birth, he does not beget, nor was he forgotten, right. So, he has no relatives he has no nessa no relatives above or below, no, no kind, so no one that is equal, no, he is the only one of his kind. And that that is the reason why he is God. Because if there were multiple beings like him, then you know that that would be illogical, that would make the existence of the universe impossible. Because we see that even in the best of families, right in the best of families, there can be fights, there can be division, there can be a struggle for power they can there can be a struggle for more wealth, etc. So
So Allah subhanaw taala is one there is only one God in a Hadees we learn that Allah subhanaw taala says that the son of Adam tells a lie against me and he has no right to do so. And the son of Adam, curses me in in the sense that he he verbally abuses me he you know, he insults me, all right. And the word that is used in Arabic is shut him.
In Urdu, it's called Gali. Right meaning to to curse someone in the sense that you insult them you verbally abused them. So in Hades it is mentioned that the son of Adam, you know, he he he verbally abuses Allah azza wa jal suffered a lot. And what does that mean? What does that mean? That means that he says that Allah has a child, to say that Allah has a child is an insult to God. It is, it is an insult. It is it is an atrocious statement, because Allah is one, there is no one that is like him to say that he has a child means that you are introducing others of his kind. And the moment you do that, you take his power away, you're saying that he that he does not have absolute power, he
does not have absolute authority. So this is an insult. This is this is an atrocious statement. In sootel israa ir 111 Allah subhanaw taala says watercooling hamdulillah say All praise is only for Allah, Who is Allah? Why perfect, all praise for him exclusively, because Lemmy he is a lady lemmya tahith one of them he is the one who does not have a child. While Aamir Khan Lucia reconfirmed mark and he does not have a partner in his domain in his in his book, one of the akula who will a human and he does not have a friend or a protector or guardian to protect him out of weakness. No he he
does not need anyone to protect him to support him. He does not need a partner and he does not have a child. There is nobody like him. in Hades, we learn about how the mushrikeen the polytheists, they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they asked him that tell us about the lineage of your Lord with meaning. Tell us about his background. Right? Where did he come from? In on sublet Roebuck. So this is when Allah subhanaw taala revealed sort of the floss, that there is no necessity for Allah there's no background, any you don't, you don't talk about a lot the way you talk about the creation and you don't you know, like an Aleph to the creation. When you look at any creature,
you wonder, what is its origin? Where did it come from? Right. So for example, human beings, where did they come from this person? What is his background, this creature, right, this cat, this mouse this, you know, that way, you know, anything? We know that it came from somewhere? Right? It has some kind of origin. Allah subhanaw taala. He always was because he is not the creation, He is the Creator. Right? And he will always be. So he has no NASA. Right? And he has always been one. And he was the one who created the skies and the earth. Right. So as we learned in an Irish and kennela Well, while I'm jaquan Shea on a row, there was once a time that Allah who was there, and there was
nothing else besides him. He was the only one that existed. Right. And then in circle calfire 51 we learn Mashhad to him help us some Iwaki, while all the while a honeypot unfussy him when I come to McDuffie, the Molina Buddha, that our last panel tada did not make, you know, the devil's or, or, you know, other creatures as witnesses, other beings as witnesses when He created you know, the skies and the earth. So, he was the only one that was there. And we've already inserted to Nyssa I 171. The last panel Tata says, well at the colusa do not say that, that Allah that God is three do not say even that there are three gods and this is referring to the concept of Trinity right God
son, the Holy Ghost, any do not even say that into who stop it khayrallah calm that is best for you. Because the fact is that in nama in Nam, Allahu Allahu wa hid. The fact is that Allah is only one God Subhana who Glory be to Him He is too perfect in your corner who Allah that He should have a child any needing a child wanting a child having a child This is from a place of weakness, right because if you think about it, the creation is a need of having children, right? We need to procreate in order to continue to exist, right in order in order that our you know, our existence remains. Because if you know someone does not have a child, right? If they don't procreate, then
they're going to cease to exist, they're going to go extinct, right, they're going to go extinct, this is the reality of the creation, that we need to procreate in order to you know, is so that our, you know, kind can live on otherwise we would go extinct. But Allah subhanaw taala he he he does not he is a Hey, he is the EverLiving right, he is levani the one who is free of need, he does not sleep he does not get tired. So, he does not need a child or a partner sober Hanna who in your corner who well and law whom FSM Iwaki woman fell out of and to Allah belong whatever that is in the skies and whatever that is in the earth, He is soul rich, he is the one who created all of this. So he does
not need a family, a child or a partner. We learned that the entire creation is such that you know they they are in pairs, Allah subhanaw taala has created them in parents such that they have an you know an equivalent and that equivalent is either you know its counterpart or its opposite. Right. And and that that pair is needed. Right for for the purpose of existence. So insert to that yet I have 49 last panel thought it says women cliche in Harlequin as Lj Neil I look into the code that everything we have created in pairs and this pair
You know the concept of pairs means that either it is, you know, such that each has its counterpart that completes it,
you know, in the sense that it that it enables it to procreate, so that it can, you know, continue to exist, or it has a counterpart it's opposite, because then it is complete, then then that then the that existence, that creature has, you know an existence that can be understood. So, for example, there there is no concept of light, if there is no darkness, right, in what would be light, if there was no darkness, things are known by their opposites. If there were if they did not have opposites, they, you know their existence would be incomplete. Allah subhanaw taala He is Allah He is one, so, he has no equivalent
and when Allah subhanaw taala is aware head ahead and witted This means that he is independent of all so he is perfect and complete in and of himself.
In suit Eunice is 68 we learn Carlota heard Allah when other Suba Hannah hoo hoo Ella honey you lahoma for some our tea woman fill out. They say that Allah has taken a child Glory be to Him He is a honey He is the one who is free of need. And to Him belong whatever that is, that is in the skies and whatever that is in the earth. When Allah is unguided, I have this also means that he is one as God meaning in his Ulu here, he is unique, he is one, meaning there is no one who shares in who has a share in his Ulu here, in, in his being God. So this means that he is the only God meaning he is the only one who deserves worship. So if there is anyone else that people worship, then First of
all, that, that that, you know, so called God doesn't really exist, right? It's just a figment of imagination, as we learned in the Quran, that these are only names that you have invented, there is no reality to them. It's just names. Right? And, you know, especially when it comes to such mythology, like, you know, for example, Greek mythology, what is the reality of all those gods? Right? There is no reality. It's just names. That's it. Right? And even if, for example, someone, you know, worships a certain creature, believing that it is God, well, calling something God does not make it God. It does not change its reality. So for example, there eSATA he said that no matter
how many times people say that he is son of God, he does not become Son of God. Right? If you call something that is red, blue, you're calling it blue is never going to make it blue. It's always going to be what it is. So just like that, Allah subhanaw taala is the only God so when others are worshipped besides Allah, they don't automatically become God. Even though people worship those beings, they're not actually God. So no matter how many times this lie is practiced, it is taught it is, you know, spoken about or no matter how old it is. It's it will always be a lie, because there is no god besides Allah, He is one in his Illa here. So we learn in Hadith the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam said La ilaha illa Allah Yeah, for our Luma you read Allah and Allah La Ilaha Illa and, or Allah You alone are Allah there is no god but you what Allah who Camila Houma had La Ilaha Illa who you're your God is one God there is no God, except Allah.
We learned in an arm called enema Hua Allahu wa had say that Allah is only one God. We learned in solitude, the ayah number 50. That how you know the prophets of Allah, they said or Buddha, Allah mela, common Illa in Hebrew, that all people worship Allah there is no God that you have besides Him. In sootel ambia I have 108 the Prophet sallallahu Urdu cinemas told to declare that in the May you have a year and Nima Ito Camila who said, that it has been revealed to me that your God is only one God for hell until Muslim moon so are you going to surrender or not? In certain nathalia 51 in a sec what kind Allah who letter to him in a heinous name that Allah has said do not take two Gods do
not believe in two Gods do not say that there are two Gods because the fact is that there is only one God there is no concept of
God of good in the God of evil. No, Allah subhanaw taala is the only God who controls good and evil. Right, both good and evil come from him by his permission.
In surah, two Toba i a 31. We learned one our only rule in lallier, Voodoo ilaha wahida that people have not been commanded except that they should worship only one God. And he This is what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded us to do.
And then one Allah subhanaw taala is one and unique and single This means that he is one as Rob says he is singular, he is unique in his rubia meaning He alone is the creator. And there is no creator besides Him, He alone is the owner of everything and there is no owner Besides, and He alone is the one who regulates the affairs of the creation of there is no one else who does that with him. absolute authority is with Allah. He deserves worship. And he also has absolute authority over the creation.
We don't introduce if I have 39 yell Sahiba usage of Babel Mota farrakhan hi Ron amila will waha use of this and I'm asked his, you know, the the inmates who are with him in the prison, that tell me are multiple gods that are divided? Are they better? Or Allah who is one, the one who has absolute authority, what is better? Any having divided multiple Gods so there is one God that is controlling rain and other God is controlling, you know, health and others controlling wealth, and he is that better? So you're desperately trying to, you know, get everyone's approval and you're desperately trying to, you know, seek their help and one is not helping you, because you went to the other any,
what kind of a life would that be? Is that better? Or is it better to believe in a God who is single who is all powerful, whose will prevails?
Then when Allah subhanaw taala is, Allahu Allah had, this also means that he is unique in all of his attributes, and in all of his names. So instead of Maria Maya 65, we learn how tharla moolah who semiya Do you know anyone who, who you know who has the same name as Allah, meaning, do you know anyone who is the same as Allah, is there anyone who is also Allah besides Allah, no, there is no one that that that exists like that, right Allah is unguided. So into the Shura i 11, we learn laser chemistry he shaped one, there is nothing that is like him, there is no one that is like him, Well, who was severely bullied and he is the overhearing the ever seen and I mentioned this earlier, that
the resemblance is is merely in in words, not in the actual reality. That is very different, when it comes to our listening our you know, ability to see that is very different from how Allah subhanaw taala listens and how he sees things. So the resemblance is merely in words. That is not in the actual reality because laser chemistry he shaved last panel thought it tells us in sort of suburbia 22 that corridor Latinas RM two min Daniela, that call upon those who you claim, whom you think you assert that they are Gods besides Allah if they're really you know, you think that they're Gods Okay, go ahead call upon them. The fact is that lay young Lee Cornermen scholars are watching for
some are worth you will fill up. The fact is that they don't even own they, they don't even have power over him his scholar, the myth, kala Dawa something that is equal to, you know, a tiny particle, the tiniest particle,
any, you know, like like a speck of dust. They don't even have control over that. Whether that speck of dust is floating somewhere in the skies or it is settled somewhere in the earth. They don't have power over the tiniest of things even. It is also part of harda who has absolute control over everything. This is why we say less shafia illa. Allah there is no healer, except for you. Meaning healing comes from Allah. This is why we believe What are y'all feel with the Nuba illa Anta no one can forgive sins except for you. And if you've done something wrong, and you go to people
And you say please forgive my sins. They're not able to forgive you your sins. They can't take your sins away. They can't do that. And even if someone says to you, it's okay you did something horrible. It's okay. It's okay. They're saying it's okay is not going to remove your sins. Your sins are only going to go away when Allah subhanaw taala removes them. Well Are y'all filled with do know but illa Anta because we believe that Allah is one and unique in his attributes, this is why, you know, we ask Allah that, you know, for example, why didn't you Solihull our manual Aflac for a new lady Lisa Lee, what are your sleep who say he or her Illa, anta that Oh Allah,
you guide me to the best actions and to the best manners, because there is no one who can guide me or anyone to best actions and best manners, except for you. And there is no one who can turn away evil actions and evil manners from someone except for you. Any all power is with you all power to change anything to cause something to happen. It rests with you. This is why we say learn how, when a co worker illa Billah that there is no power and no might. Right except with Allah. if anything changes, if anything comes if anything goes away, if we do something, if we avoid something, if we accomplish something, you know, if we survive something, that is his with His permission, and with
whose power only with the power of Allah, this is the concept of dough heat. And this is a liberating concept to live with this faith is to live in liberty. Because to believe you know, on one extreme, that there is no God, this is extremely depressing. Henny, that means that you are meaningless, right? That means that you are you're just as good as you know, a piece, you know, some some, some dirt, you are as good as a piece of plastic. There is no purpose, no meaning to your existence. And that doesn't make sense. Because we are such intricate, complicated beings, we feel so much we experience so much and all of that cannot be in vain. So to believe that there is no God,
that's extremely depressing.
And then, on the other hand, to believe that there are multiple gods that is extremely confusing, and, and it's it's very exhausting, right, it's like you, you've been left to figure out everything on your own. So that is extremely exhausting. The concept of the heat is a beautiful, wholesome concept that satisfies our mind satisfies our hearts. And it truly liberates us. It gives us a purpose. And it brings us clarity and it's also a source of healing for us a source of comfort and courage for us.
So, when it when it comes to the concept of dough heat, we see that it's extremely important.
Any to live with to noto, Hades, to know the oneness of a lot to live, you know, with the belief in the oneness of Allah is very, very different from living without knowing. And without experiencing without understanding the oneness of Allah. There is a difference, you know, of night and day between these two beliefs between these two, you know,
you can say perspectives, right, or mindsets. When it comes to towhead. Remember that it is the greatest and most important reality.
It is the greatest and the most important reality that Allah is one that Allah is way ahead. He is ahead. He is a wizard. This is the most important reality. Any there's things you know about this universe, which a lot of us don't know about. Right? We don't know, for example, what the size of the Sun is, right? I mean, I'm sure that there is estimates but if you were to ask me, I don't know the answer. Right? There's, you know, a lot of laws of physics, etc. You know, that people have figured out
you know, people have written in length about these concepts, they have dedicated their lives, you know, studying these concepts, if you don't know that. It's okay. Right? If you're, if you're not a PhD in physics, it's fine. Right?
It's It's okay. But if you don't know to hate,
if you don't know about the oneness of Allah, you are missing out and not just missing out as missing out on, on on experiencing something great and beautiful No you are missing out on life you are missing out, you know on your purpose, your existence, you don't know something so major. So major, though he does the greatest reality because this is the reality of who of, of the of the creator of this universe. It's the most important reality unless panel Tata tells us in the valley Kirby and Allahu Allah alone is unhealthy meaning He alone is the true God. He really is God will undermine their own I mean dooney He who will baffling and whatever it is that they call upon
besides a lot, it is all falsehood. There is no truth to it. In our head, this we learned that if the skies and the earth and whatever that is in them were put on one side of the scale.
And on the other side of the scale, just La ilaha illa Allah who was put in if you were to measure the weight of La ilaha illAllah against the skies on the earth, the entire universe, la isla in the world would be heavier, it would be heavier, because it is more important, more worthy, more beneficial.
Then the skies and the earth combined.
Which is exactly what I was talking about earlier that if you if you don't know about many things about this universe, it's fine. It's okay. But if you don't know about La ilaha illa Allah then you're missing out on something huge. Instead of me noon. I a 91 last panel tada says Mata whoa the LogMeIn Weller than one that can amar hoomin Isla, Allah has not taken a child, and there is no God with him. Because if that were the case, either leather harbor kulu Isla Hema Hanukkah, then every God would have taken away what he created, can he this world would not be intact. This universe would not be you know, put together then it would be it would be destroyed already. I mean, I'm sure
you've you've noticed this you've seen this perhaps in your own life about how there is a piece of property that someone owns. And when they die, and their children come in divided up, one sells it one build something else on it, any the landscape changes, right completely changes transforms. So if there were multiple Gods each God would have taken away his share of the universe. Well, I love Babu whom I love, and each God would have tried to overcome the other end there would be constant chaos. So that is not the case. There are no Gods besides Allah, the fact is the greatest reality, the most important reality that is related to every single creature is that there is only one God.
Secondly, though he is the right of Allah, it is Allah says, right, that we believe in and we declare that there is only one God. Because this is this is the truth about Allah. And if someone were to say something false about you, something that is not true about you, and you're just a person, you're just a human being, right? Any who would be extremely offended that How dare they say, a lie about me? Any we're nothing yet we get so offended if lies are spread about us. So it is Allah's right that we believe that there is only one God and that we don't worship anything with him. And in Hades we learn about this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told that tomorrow
they've been jumbled,
then though he is the foundation of worship, honey, because there is only one God right? Because we believe that there is only one God we dedicate worship to him, that is what makes him worthy of worship. Because if God did not have you know, perfect power and an absolute authority, then any even the creation, right could could begin to you know, compare itself with the creek with with God. They would try to, you know, try to try to match with or fight God stuff. Right? So, any because Allah is all powerful because he is the only God. This is why we worship Him. Right? And this is why the you know, the pillar
As a faith, the Pillars of Islam, the first pillar is what? La ilaha illAllah to declare that there is no god worthy of worship of Allah and that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is His Messenger, though he does a fulfillment of life's purpose. Last pantherella says wilmerhale up to dinner will insert in lallier boon, I did not create men and jinn except that they should worship Me meaning the only reason why Allah Subhana Allah created us is so that we worship Him. And one of the scholars interpreted this as Dr. budoni meaning Liana funi that people should know me because you can only worship someone if you know them. Right? You know you can you recognize them. You you identify them
you you know who they are. So the purpose of life is what to know Allah subhanaw taala right to get closer to Allah subhanaw taala and this is what you know the ups and downs of life this is what they teach us that there is only one God He is the one who is an absolute control. I live in my body and yet I don't have control over it right I you know have certain things yet I don't have control over them. I am the one who gave birth to my children yet I don't own them.
I have this wealth yet. I don't know if it's gonna stay with me till tomorrow. Any every single, you know, difficulty in life challenge in life. What does that teach us that Allah subhanaw taala is the one in control.
Though he was the call of every prophet, being the reason why Allah subhanaw taala sent prophets and the reason why almost punctata revealed the books was to teach people about his oneness so that they know Allah is one they know who is God and then they can worship Him. So we learn
in sorbitol aarav I have 59 I have 65 i 73. I have 85 about how you know different messengers different prophets are mentioned no alayhis salaam who the early his Salaam Saleh listen I'm sure I Allah, his Sunnah. All of these prophets are mentioned by name and it is said that you know they basically gave the same message to their people they said your co marabu the Lucha mala Camila in a row, all my people worship Allah you have no God. Besides him, there you there is no god besides Allah. The only one who deserves your worship is Allah. So this was the call of every prophet, though hate his salvation, ne without the head, there is no success. A person cannot succeed in this
life. And there is no success in the hereafter for a person if they don't believe in towhead. How is the hey the source of salvation in dunya in this life, because you see, when you believe that Allah has absolute control over everything, He is the Creator, he is the giver. He is the one who expands or he withholds right. He is the one who has power over me and he is the one who has power over my enemies. He gave me life, he can take my life away, he created my enemies and he can also cause it, he is the one who will cause them to die. He doesn't just own me, he also owns this world, he doesn't just have power over me, he also has power over the entire universe. What does that do? It
gives you so much clarity, it makes you realize that you only need to fear Allah really, you only need to strive to please Allah, right, that he should become your number one, you know focus, that you give him importance over everything else, when you do that, everything falls in place, everything falls in place. And this is how your heart is at peace. You have purpose in life, you can make sense of things that are going on in life. So this is how to heat becomes a source of salvation in this life. Any imagine? Imagine a person is unwell. Imagine and they don't have someone to call upon. Imagine all that grief, all that worry all that fear is sitting inside. And a person looks at
other human beings like them. That this is a doctor This is an expert he has said no. He says I'm sorry, I can't help you. She says too bad. This one doesn't care. Anyone you look at the creation, what you see is that the creation is limited in its power. Even limited in its mercy. limited in its help. Right. So when you look at the creation, there is only disappointment. So not being able to pour out your heart before someone any How can you live with that? How can you exist like that. So
Believing in towhead enables you to fear Allah to love Allah to have hope in Allah to seek Allah's approval. It gives you the ability to accept your situation and to make the most out of it. It gives you strength that gives you courage. And then the heat is also the source of salvation in the hereafter. So we learned through to Zoomer is 65 will occur Oh Hiya, la casa. What either living in publica that it has been revealed to you or Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it was also revealed to the people before you that let in a shock the layer hypothenar on the look, if you associate partners with Allah, then your deeds would be destroyed while at akuna nominal hustling
and he would be of those who are losers, meaning there is no success without tau hate if you do [???] if you associate partners with the law, this is just failure upon failure. In Sahih, Muslim and Hadees we learn that Mamata wahiawa yarlung anahola illa Illa Allah the whole agenda, whoever dies while he knows that there is no god worthy of worship, but Allah, then such a person will enter Jannah in another Hadees, we learn the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that there is no slave who says La ilaha illa Allah and then he dies upon that belief except that eventually he will enter Jenna. So I will download your Longhorn who was a bit you know, he was kind of taken aback by that
that What if he commits Zina? If this person you know says La Ilaha Illa moppet and he goes in, you know, he does unlawful things. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yes, even if he commits Zina, and even if he commits theft, a Buddha repeated his question, what in what in Xena were in South Africa, even if he does Zina and he commits theft and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said yes, and this happened multiple times. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, even if a Buddha does not like it, and even if a Buddha has difficulty in understanding this, yes, the one who says La ilaha illa Allah, eventually such a person will enter Jannah so truly, it is the source of
salvation, which means that there is no salvation without dough heat.
There is no salvation without the heat. We learn in another Hadees about how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
that whoever dies, when while he calls upon another god besides Allah will Hawaii Yadu he calls upon mix there are two, a need besides Allah right a partner to Allah meaning he believes that there that Allah has a partner, that there is someone else who has the power that Allah exclusively has. And so he calls upon him, then such a person if he dies in that condition, the Holland, he will enter the fire, he will enter the fire so there is no salvation without bow heat.
So when Allah subhanaw taala is one, what is our responsibility when Allah is Allah height and width? Then what should we do?
First of all, we should believe in his oneness and we should never associate anything with him. Anything at all. Allah subhanaw taala says and sort of recap the last verse from uncanny your juluca on a be fully armed Ramadan slowly her well are you sure very bad that your be harder than what Allah Allah is one who created you He alone is your rub, then do not associate in his worship anyone.
So we should strive to stay away from shake. And we should also ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from falling into
that Oh Allah, I seek refuge with You lest I associate a new partner with you and I seek forgiveness with you. I seek forgiveness from you. If I have ever associated any partner with you in any way whatsoever, that he or Allah, you forgive me, because shame is the most dangerous thing. Unless pantherella does not forgive it. There is sense that Allah will forgive but schicke Allah will not forgive, unless and until a person has repented from it in his life. If a person repents from it, at the time of death or after death, there is no forgiveness. What are ya the below when Allah is one, we should also declare his oneness, meaning we should actively mentioned the fact that Allah is one.
And this is important, you know, saying that Allah is one this is not the you know, this is not just a statement that we say with our mouth. Unfortunately for a lot of people, it's become, you know, just just a, you know, a statement, Lyla, high Lama, right, we say, you know, as Muslims, you know, we
We believe in monotheism. But what exactly does that mean in practical life? Why is it that we are told to declare his oneness because when we declare the oneness of Allah, we are reminding ourselves that Allah alone has absolute authority. So I don't need to fear people. I don't need to fear my disease. Right? I don't need to be afraid of, you know, things. I should shift my focus to Allah subhanaw taala because he has everything in control. So it's a source of courage. It's it's she fought for the heart, it's a source of strength, right and it's a source of relief. So declare his oneness over and over again. No, we're taught that apply to victory. The best form of victory is to
say that you know how
to say that there is no god worthy of worship, but Allah, if a person dies, while he knows that lead that there is no God but Allah such a person will enter agenda, right. And
also we learn that if a person says La Ilaha Illa hula srikalahasti will macola will handle wha hoo allow cliche in crowded 100 times a day, then he will get the reward of freeing 10 slaves 100 good deeds will be recorded for him. 100 sins will be removed from him, and he will be safeguarded against the shaitan on that day until the evening, any, say c'est la ilaha illa Allah is is no small thing. So say, say it while you mean it, say it with your heart. And then when Allah is one, then of course this means that we should send to our lives around him. We should live for Him in the Salah hottie we're new so Kiva mahiya, your woman Murthy? lillahi, Rabbil aalameen, that indeed, my Salah,
my worship, right, my Salah, and my New Silk, my sacrifice. All right, one more here yet my life, woman Mati and my death. All of these are dedicated to Allah. Why because he's the Lord of the worlds he created me he created everything else. So there's nothing else that deserves my worship my life, my death, except Allah, I dedicate myself to Allah. And this means that really in every aspect of our lives, we pay attention to what Allah subhanaw taala likes, and what Allah subhanaw taala does not like any we should be, we should be attentive towards that when it comes to our speech, when it comes to you know, the way that we deal with our family, when it comes to you know, even
when we take care of our bodies, right?
In every matter, we have to be attentive towards what Allah subhanaw taala likes, this is really living for Allah.
And then the fact is, that Chetan is after all of us. And there are you know, those times when shaitan puts negative thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala in our minds. So we, you know, sometimes people begin to wonder, well, where did the love come from? Right? Or things like, you know, what, why did Allah do this? Right? So whenever there's any negative thought about the oneness of a lot and counter that negative thought, how counter that negative thought by declaring the oneness of Allah, you know, how these we learn about how, you know, people, you know, will continue to ask, you know, each other, about different matters, until you know, it will be said, Allah created this,
right, Allah created that. And then people will say, who made a lot where did the love come from? So in Hades, we learn whoever finds anything like that in his heart failure to believe he should say amen to be law, I believe in a law any whenever there is a negative thought and especially, you know, you know, sometimes when you hear different people different perspectives, no as part of studying, right?
You know, you're you're studying science, you learn about evolution, you know, you learn about different concepts, different isms, etc. And you may have certain questions or certain doubts in your heart. Anytime you experience something even small in your heart like that, say I'm into Billa I believe in Allah. I believe in Allah Omen to Billa you say that, right? It's it's an affirmation that you make to yourself, in order to discard any to get rid of any negative thought about all the hora xojo in another Hadees we learn that, you know, when people say things like that, that where did Allah come from? Then you should say Allahu Ahad Allah who Samad lemmie, la dweller mula
willamina Kula who cough one had any he should recite suitable floss, and then a person should
You know, depending on how bad the wasp was, or is spit three times to your left, and seek refuge with ALLAH against the shape line.
And we learned about, you know, the name and width specifically that Allah is width to the end, he loves width. Right? So this means that we should, you know, pray with it, and we should also choose with it, meaning that you know what, when we're praying in the night, then the last, the dakara should be, you know, and have an odd number, right? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a journal atherosclerotic and believed withdraw. And a lot of people, you know, they get lazy when it comes to with it. You know, especially at the end of the day, you know, you're tired, so you just want to get into bed, sometimes people will just do their Isha for the car and get in bed, make sure
you do with it as well, even if it's just one record, because Allah subhanaw taala likes with it. And
we see this, you know, in the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that a lot of things that he did, he would do them in, you know, in the odd number. So, for example, when he would, you know, recite any da, you know, for protection or even, for instance, sootel airfloss, suitable fetlocks suited to NASS, when he would recite pieces, he would recite them three times, right there hours of the morning of the evening. Some of them he would recite them three times, right, certain doors, he taught us, you know, to read seven times when it comes to eating, you know, dates, eat them in an odd number, even when the Prophet salallahu earnings send them, you know, he would apply
curl in his eyes, you know, he would he would do that three times, this is what he taught, even when it comes to you know, wiping yourself after using the washroom in the process of cleaning yourself, even that should be, you know, in in in an odd number of times, when it comes to making wudu you're rushing yourself three times, even when it comes to washing the deceased, three, you know, an odd number of times. So, this is, you know, Allah subhanaw taala is with him and he likes that for us. So we should also develop this habit. This is just an expression of, you know, showing our love to Allah subhanaw taala.
Finally, the last section, how can we call upon the law by these names?
The first thing is that there is a beautiful draw in which we learned that a man was saying, there's a hadith in which we learnt that a man was saying Allahumma inni Luca or Allah indeed I ask you, and I asked you a Nia shadow unaka and I asked you
because I testified that indeed you are under the law You alone are Allah Allah in the answer there is no god but you you are had. You are one a Samad Allah dilemma. dwolla mula dweller Mia colo cough one I had, this is the reason why I asked you Oh Allah. So the man was saying this and the Prophet sallallahu earlier said, I'm hurting him. And he said that this person has called upon Allah, by a name, by which when Allah is called upon when he's asked, he gives, when he's requested he response any this teaches us that when we are making drop, we should mention the oneness of Allah.
In the in your door, don't just say Oh Allah give me this Allah forgive me so well Allah, Allah had I had yarrabah Forgive me, for you alone can forgive me. You know mention the oneness of Allah in different ways. You can mention his oneness by saying La ilaha illa Anta you can mention his oneness by using one of these names that were had that had a width. You can mention his oneness by you know, saying something like there is no one who can give me this but you there is no one who can change my condition but you no one who can, you know, forgive me, except you. So mention his oneness when making girl. Secondly, declare his oneness as much as you can make it a habit to say that ilaha illa
And there is a beautiful Hadith in which we learn that when a person says La ilaha illa Allah who Allahu Akbar, that there is no God, but Allah and Allah is the Greatest. Allah says, My servant has spoken the truth, there is no god but I and I am the greatest. When the servant says Laila Illa, Allah who there is no God but Allah, He is one alone. Allah subhanaw taala says, My servant has spoken the truth that Illa Illa Anna windy, there is no god besides me. When the servant says La ilaha illa Allah who, la who will Molko Allah who will hand that there is no God but Allah
To Him belongs the dominion and for him as all praise Allah subhanaw taala says, My servant has spoken the truth. There is no god besides me. And, and, and all dominion and praise is for me. And one of the servants has La ilaha illa Allah hola hola La quwata illa Billah that there is no God but Allah and there is no power might accept what Allah. Allah says, My servant has spoken the truth there is no god besides me and there is no power and no mind except with me. Meaning there is any power any might, it is only with Allah. So, any every time you you affirm the oneness of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala answers he responds, he he agrees with you know, he approves what you have
said. So, make it a habit to say that ilaha illa Allah and there are so many you know beautiful ways of saying that. And this Hadees is mentioned in Sunni bin magia otherwise also you need there are so many doors in which we learn about you know how we can mention the oneness of Allah for example, after will do we say a Chateau La ilaha illa Allah Who are the hula Shri Kala Wanda Mohammed Abdul rasuluh in Salah, the Prophet sallallahu Urdu some would say in his record, La ilaha illa Anta right after Salah La ilaha illa Allah who either hula shriek Allah will Buccola will hamdullah who are like Alicia in crowded right after a gathering Subhana Allah Houma will be handy. eyeshadow, Allah
ilaha illa Anta, stuffy rucola Toby lake in the morning in the evening, a lot more often if you bet any alarm off and if you summary a lot more often if you busca de la ilaha illa Anta and in the night when the Prophet sallallahu Urdu Cena would wake up and he would turn his side, sometimes out of you know, extreme thirst he would be tossing and turning in bed, he would say la ilaha illa Allah will where he will.
That there is no God but Allah He is Allah had alcohol he is robust and it will all do Mr. bainer Homer, Allah Aziz will have fun. And of course, in every difficulty in every trouble, La ilaha illa Anta Suba Hanukkah in equal demeanor, lolly mean, the DA of Eunice on his Salah, that there is no god but you who Allah who are perfect, indeed I am of those who are wrongdoers. So if you pay attention to this, you will find that in so many of cow, there is the declaration of the oneness of Allah. And as we say it we should mean it, and we should realize its greatness and its power. And we should make a habit of saying La ilaha illa Allah throughout the day throughout the night whenever
we get a moment. And one last thing, make it a habit to recite sort of a floss as well, because suitable a class it mentions the oneness of Allah. Right. And
it mentions the oneness of alone the most beautiful, the most complete terms. And this surah while a lot of people recited in Salah because it's a short surah it's easy to recite,
unfortunately, you know, we don't pay much attention to it. Whereas pseudo class is is a is a very heavy surah right the Prophet sallallahu already said I would recite it in Salah for example, in his Sunnah prayers of budget and Muslim. In the second record, he would recite Surah airfloss
because Paul, who Allahu Ahad say Allah is one in another Hadees we learn about how it is equivalent to a third of the Quran. Because the message of the Quran is what that Allah is one Alright, so it is equivalent to a third of the Quran.
And we also learn about how, you know a man loved suited to floss and he would recite it frequently. And some people complained about it and when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked him why do you recite it? He said, I love it. I love it. That's why I recite it. And the Prophet sallallahu already said I'm a widow. But anyway, Joe Butler will Jenna.
Jenna is for him and he will go to Jenna. And it's also you know, a sutra which if we recite very frequently,
it increases and increases us in faith in removes doubts and it also strengthens our love for Allah subhanaw taala and in another Hadees, we learn about how if a person recites it 10 times they get a home and Jenna so we should also make a habit of reciting the sutra and in general, declaring the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala as much as we are able, because it is the key to success, the key to salvation. inshallah, we will conclude over here subhanak Allahumma behenic eyeshadow La ilaha illa Anta stuffie rucola at Lake wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
