salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa he will barchetta Welcome to another episode of the power of liquor.
In the previous episode, we talked about the importance of our actions, all of our actions, and especially our vehicle for it to be sincere for the sake of Allah. And for it to be in accordance with the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In this episode and in the coming episodes, we're going to look in sha Allah at some of the virtues of remembering Allah, and what it really means to remember Allah and some of the different ways that the Quran and the Sunnah tell us about the remembrance of Allah. And then in sha Allah, Who to Allah, we'll move on to look at some of the car some of the types of Vicar that a Muslim can say, and hopefully inshallah, you
and I together will learn some of the beneficial Vicar and the beneficial as car that we can do as Muslims. Today's episode is all about introducing the importance and the virtue of remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala. In reality, this is something that won't be covered in simply one episode. It is a very long topic, and it contains a huge amount of benefit. It's very important that we understand that whenever we talk about the virtues of good deeds, what we call for By Allah, the virtue of doing good deeds. We talk about it because this is what motivates you. This is what drives you. This is what makes you want to remember Allah, because of course you want to do good deeds. You want to
remember Allah, you want to worship Allah. But when you know the virtue of those deeds, when you know the importance of those deeds, it makes you stronger, it makes you more keen. And that's why we're going to begin this series of episodes in sha Allah to Allah on the power of Vicar by talking about the importance of the how important it is to remember Allah azza wa jal so Allah Subhana Allah stays in Nakuru, an
au Jai levena airman's Kuru la zichron kathira a command from Allah, a clear command from Allah, or you who believe, and it's very important, we understand what it means when Allah says, Yeah, you Hello, Dina and Allah is calling you either to command you something, or to forbid you from something, or to tell you about something which is critical for your belief in Islam. And that's why whenever you hear the words, yeah, you hadn't levena um and in the Quran, this means Listen up. This means listen and be still and silent and listen to what is going to come because what is going to come is a critical command or a critical piece of information that is being given to you by Allah
azza wa jal, he is addressing you directly or you who believe and what is Allah addressing with us in this ayah addressing us within this ayah Allah azza wa jal says, Yeah, you had levena North Korea law has the current kathira remember a law, the Quran kathira a remembrance that is constant and is much be always and constantly in a state of remembering Allah. be in a state where you don't ever stop remembering Allah? And Allah azza wa jal, whatever he commands us within the Quran is really critical. It's really vital to us. And Allah azza wa jal doesn't just say, yeah, you have levena Northcote Allah. Not just that with guru law has the Quran kathira not just to remember Allah, but
then Allah azza wa jal emphasizes it twice. First of all, Allah emphasizes it by saying yeah, you have levena mo and this is a type of emphasis. It's a type of something to get your attention. And then Allah commands you, koala. remember Allah This is a command from your Lord and we obey the commands of our Lord. That's what it means to be a Muslim to submit to Allah. A Muslim is the one who submits and this command to submit remember Allah and then again Allah azza wa jal emphasis emphasizes It was called a law how the Quran, remember Allah with a remembrance and then again, he emphasizes it the Quran kathira
remembrance which is much which is constant which is frequent. This is something that is emphasized in so many ways in the I, O you who believe, remember a law with a remembrance that is constant that is much that is frequent that you never ever stopped doing. So this is something which tells us the importance of this particular topic. In another ayah Allah azzawajal says for either called a two minute seeker coup, when you finish your monastic you finish your Hajj rites. First coudl la hecho de currycomb
comme des declaw, remember a law, like you used to sit and remember your father's or your ancestors. And that's because it was the tradition of the people at the Hajj. That what do we do when they had finished a part of their heart rates, they would sit in the days of tashlich in the days of the three days after aid, and on the a day, and they would remember that they would talk about constantly sit and they will talk about the virtue of their ancestors and their forefathers. And they would say my forefathers did this. And they did that they were the best, they were the most noble, they were better than your forefathers. And they would take pride, they would boast about the
virtue of their forefathers and they would spend these days of Hajj at the end of Hajj in these three days and more they would spend them recalling and and boasting and competing with each other in the remembrance of their forefathers and what their their tribe had done and how noble their tribe was and how wonderful their deeds were.
Allah azza wa jal commands them. remember Allah, just like you used to remember your forefathers in this time, I showed the declaw or even more than that. And this is some of the dilemma of Tafseer, the scholars of Tafseer they take a huge benefit from this, they see that a person becomes close to a person and increases love for someone by the amount that they remember them and the amount that they recall them and the amount that they talk about them. If you found a person talking about a celebrity day and night, any celebrity that say a film star, musician, whatever it may be, and day and night, they don't stop talking about them.
This is a demonstration for how much they have fallen in love in in in sort of dedication to that particular individual kurush if the fact that they used to spend so many days just telling about how wonderful our forefathers was, it came to over a came to, to bring them closer to them. So if you want to get closer to Allah azza wa jal, the way to get closer to Allah is to remember him and there are many a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam some of which we're going to hear, which indicate that by remembering Allah, you show your love for Allah, and you make a lot your love for Allah above everything and everyone else.
Because Allah azza wa jal tells us in the Quran, from the people, of those who have taken, idols have taken Gods besides Allah.
You have bought a home carabiner they love them, like they live a lot or they love them like the believers love Allah two opinions from the scholars have tested either they love their idols like they love a law, or they love their idols like the believers love Allah. And then Allah azza wa jal says, When levena Amano, I said to her Bonilla, those people who believe are stronger in love for Allah. It's not that they, you know, a con compare with the love that the idol worshipers show for their idols and their gods. Our love for Allah is infinitely stronger than that. When levena and then I said to her Bonilla, and this love for Allah, and his dedication to Allah, it comes out in
the amount that we remember Allah. So the more we do our Vicar, the more we remember Allah azza wa jal, the closer we become to Allah, the more love we show for Allah, the greater Eman we have, the better Muslim that we are. So it's very, very, very important.
And Allah azza wa jal describes the people who believe and he describes the people of Paradise and he says aladeen iF kurunegala those who remember a law pm and Raku them were alleged to be him. They remember a law pm and standing up work udon whether they are sitting down with Elijah to be him when they are lying on their sides lying down. So whether you are standing up whether you are
Sitting down whether you are lying down in every single case you're remembering Allah. Look at the altcar of a Muslim did the vicar that a Muslim says every day. You see, Vicar when you get up in the morning, you're you you wake up, you open your eyes you stand up and you remember Allah. You say, the remembrance of Allah when you eating, sitting down to eat. You mentioned a lot when you go out of the house. You mentioned Allah when you get in the car. You mentioned Allah when you go on a trip, you mentioned Allah, in every single situation in your life. You are mentioning Allah, in every situation, even when you lie down to go to sleep at night. You come back in the house, you
mentioned Allah you take your your dinner, you mentioned Allah, you go to talk to somebody and you when you're talking to people, you're constantly mentioning Allah Subhana Allah Alhamdulillah La ilaha illa Allah Allahu Akbar, you're mentioning Allah frequently throughout the day, insha Allah, Masha Allah, you're mentioning Allah until even the point when you go to sleep before you close your eyes, and you put down your head, you mentioned Allah. So the situation of a Muslim of a believer of the people of Paradise is that they are mentioning a law when they are standing, then mentioning a law when they're sitting, and they're mentioning a law when they are lying down. And then we have a
hadith and this hadith is in the book show, a man for by an enamel be happy, as well as an heylia by a benign and this hadith is the hadith of eyeshadow, the Allahu Allah, that she said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Ma'am in Sarah, there is no time no part of time to mourn will be Adam, that goes by no time that goes by for the children of Adam or for the son of Adam. Law Yes, Kuru la Hata Allah Fie her he doesn't remember Allah in that particular period of time, except that he will have loss or he will regret and show his regret and feel his loss and feel his upset that he has lost something, yarmulke except that he will feel that he has lost something Yamaha
piano, there is not any period of time. And a center here is any period of time, there is no period of time in which the child of Adam, the son of Adam, the daughter of Adam, you, me and anyone else doesn't remember our law, except that it will be a source of loss and a source of regret for them on the Day of Judgment. And this is an authentic hadith. So hon Allah Think about this, a source of loss and a source of regret on the Day of Judgment. No one time imagine, you know that those two hours you spent joking with your friends, those three hours that you spent out playing and you didn't remember a lot, even a Subhan Allah Al Hamdulillah, insha, Allah, Masha, Allah, whatever it
is, you didn't remember Allah, it will be a source of loss and a source of regret for you on the Day of Judgment. So this starts to show us some of the importance of the remembrance of Allah. And this is a theme we're going to continue in sha Allah in the coming episodes with the permission of Allah. Until then, I leave you in the care of Allah. wa salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
