00:00:00--> 00:00:02

Allahu ala hora

00:00:06--> 00:00:12

Allah Holla Holla Holla polldaddy Mousavi roll Malika Molly carozza.

00:00:14--> 00:00:21

The other laws perfect names, chapter one. lesson three, Allah, Allah.

00:00:22--> 00:00:39

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Abdullah hora solina Bina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge mine. This is the final part of the explanation of the first chapter which deals with the two names Allah and Allah.

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

To share he said the most comprehensive and the best of what has been said about the meaning of the name Allah is what was reported from ebony Ibis, rather the Allahu anhu man that he said, Allah is the one with the attribute of divinity and being worshipped in servitude by all of his creation and even God inherited this from him in his death seal.

00:01:02--> 00:01:46

In his explanation of the Ibis rhodiola and whom I joined between two things the first the attribute taken from this noble name which relates to a lot, so if now Bessie is going to say that there are two attributes here, one relates to Allah and the other one relates to how we behave towards Allah. So the one that relates to Allah is divinity. It's the attribute which is indicated by the word Allah, just like knowledge which is an attribute of his is indicated by the word allele in the all knowing, as his might which is an attribute of his indicated by the word as east or mighty. Likewise, wisdom which is an attribute of his as indicated by the word al Hakim, or wise as his

00:01:46--> 00:01:57

mercy, which is an attribute of his indicated by the word or Rahim, the Most Merciful as is the case with the other names which indicate to us the meaning of the attributes which are established about him.

00:01:58--> 00:02:09

So each name this tells us a principle and the chef had already mentioned this in the earlier part of the book, that each name has at least one associated attribute with it.

00:02:11--> 00:03:01

And every single name has an attribute associated with it. The attribute associated with li li M is m knowledge with Al Aziz is aza might with Al Hakim is hikma wisdom or judgment, and R Rahim is or Rahman, and mercy and so on. What comes what attribute comes from Allah. And Allah here, or I'll ILA here, which is divinity. The chef he said, therefore, Allah possesses the attribute of divinity, divinity, which is an attribute of his is the great attribute because of which he deserves to be God, and because of which he deserves that non share this great attribute with him in any way. The attributes of divinity are all of the attributes of perfection, the attributes of majesty, greatness

00:03:01--> 00:03:23

and beauty and the attributes of mercy, virtue, honor and benevolence. So here, the chef is saying that divinity is a great attribute of a lie. So which I'll do here, or ILA here. And all of those other attributes go back to it. An Ella here, being God, or being divine,

00:03:24--> 00:03:27

or being the only deity

00:03:28--> 00:04:09

divinity, that attribute is the attribute, which, because of which Allah deserves to be God, and because of which he deserves that non share in this great attribute with him in any way. These attributes are those because of which he deserves to be DFID, to be considered divine and to be worshipped as the only true God and because of which he deserves to be worshipped. He is God because He has these attributes of greatness and Granger. He's God because He alone is the one who has the attributes of sustaining his creation, lordship sovereignty and authority. He is God because He alone is the one who has the attributes of mercy and bestowing blessings both apparent and hidden to

00:04:09--> 00:04:47

all of his creation. He is God because He has encompassed everything with his knowledge, decree, wisdom, benefits, sense mercy, power miton subdued He is God because He alone has the attribute of being absolutely in perfect, live perfectly free of need, just as all other than Him are in need of him always in every way, in need of him to bring things into being into direct them in need of his help and provision in need of him for all of their needs. They are in need of him for the greatest of their needs and their greatest necessity which is their need of worshiping Him alone, and attributing divinity to him alone. Therefore the attribute of divinity encompasses all of the

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

perfect and Beautiful Names and lofty attributes. here when the chef says that the greatest need of a person is to worship Allah, even Abraham allowed to Allah he actually said that this we need to work

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

Worship a lot more than we need food and drink. Because ultimately, if you don't have food and drink, you might pass away and you might die, but you could still be from the people agenda. But if you don't worship Allah azza wa jal doesn't matter whether you eat or drink or you don't eat or drink, ultimately, there is nothing. And I in fact, I remember him said that we needed more than oxygen.

00:05:24--> 00:05:41

To worship Allah, we needed more than oxygen, to know allies names and to worship Him through them, we need this more than we need air to breathe. Because that's our paradise, that's our everlasting Hereafter is based on that knowing Allah and worshipping Him based on that knowledge.

00:05:43--> 00:05:49

So it is the greatest need, the greatest thing we need is to be able to worship Allah and we can only do that

00:05:51--> 00:05:56

by putting our trust and our faith in the last panel to Allah and and seeking His guidance and help to do that.

00:05:59--> 00:06:09

And this really just tells us that the attribute of divinity Ulu here, or ILA here, encompasses all of the perfect and Beautiful Names and lofty attributes that are lost. panatela has.

00:06:10--> 00:06:16

The second thing that even Abbas alluded to in the statement, remember the statement of him garbus, where he said,

00:06:18--> 00:06:54

where he said, Allah is the one with the attribute of divinity, we've covered that, and being worshipped in servitude by all of his creation. This is the second part. The second part is the attribute taken from this noble name which relates to the servant. So there's an attribute which relates to Allah which is divinity, being divine being God. And there's an attribute which relates to the servant IE worshiping Allah in servitude to him, the servants of Allah worship Him and attribute divinity to him. Allah the Exalted said the translation of which is, he is the one who is the deity in heaven and the deity on earth.

00:06:56--> 00:07:02

And sort of sort of is number 43 is number 84. Sort of 4384.

00:07:03--> 00:07:26

Well, when ready for summer, Isla Hoon, we'll fill out the either he's the one who is the deity in heaven and the deity on Earth. Those in the heavens and those on the earth, deify him willingly or by compulsion, meaning you have to accept a law as being God, whether even if you try and deny it, ultimately, you will accept that Allah subhanaw taala is God.

00:07:27--> 00:07:55

Because you have to accept that there is a creator, you have to accept that there is, and you have to accept that there is a sustainer, and a creator of the universe. And so whether you admit it, or whether you don't, everything in the heavens and the earth, bears witness to this, all are encompassed by his greatness in a state of submission to his vision and will, yielding to his might and his sustaining of his creation. You can't escape, submitting to His will,

00:07:56--> 00:08:14

his color and his color, you can't escape yielding to his power. Even if you say that you don't believe in Allah, you can't escape yielding to his power, you can't escape being sustained by Allah. So whether you like it or not, you have to take a lies or gel, or believe a las panatela, to be divine,

00:08:15--> 00:08:17

and to be the to be to be God.

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

The shift and he continues to say,

00:08:23--> 00:09:09

as for the servants of the Most Merciful, and the special people who worship Allah subhanaw taala, they attribute divinity to him, as the others do, and they worship Him. And they put forth as much worship as they're able worship of the heart, soul and speech and action according to their standing and decree. Allah the Exalted join between these two meanings and a number of places in the Quran, such as his statement, the translation of which is, indeed I am Allah. There is no god worthy of worship but me so worship Me and established prayer in order to remember me. So here, it mentions the ILA in any and Allahu La Ilaha Illa Anna, Farah Bodine, so worship me. So the Divinity is there

00:09:09--> 00:09:49

and the worship is that what outcome is solitary victory and establish prayer in order to remember me and Steven, the translation of which is, and we did not send before your messenger except that we revealed to him that there is no god worthy of worship but me. So worship me in sort of MBR is number 25. As well as the statement the translation of which is, so worship Him and remain constant in worship of him. Do you know of anyone similar to him, for Abood, who was severely bad at helter lemahieu Samia and this is in Surah. Miriam, I am number 65. That concludes our detailed discussion. On the fifth of Allah's perfect names in the first chapter, the meaning of the name, Allah, and the

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

meaning of the name Allah Allah, that Allah azza wa jal knows best. Wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad while early he was happy he made the second chapter that we have will be

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

On the topic of the name of Allah rub, again, we're going to start with a summary and then go into the detail and that's coming up in the next lesson and ally So Joe knows best
