Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh Welcome to another episode of the power of the
In this episode, we're going to be talking about the etiquettes of those manners and those etiquettes those things that we need to do for our Vicar to get the maximum reward. And for us to be successful for our Vicar to be pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala for us to remember Allah in the way that he wants us to remember him, we need to bear in mind certain etiquettes and just like there are advocates for dua, there are advocates for the and these advocates for Vicar, we're going to look at them from within one ayah. And this is we've already discussed it in previous episodes. But today we're going to look at the ayah from the point of view of the etiquettes of Vicar, the means and the
mannerisms, the way that we should approach our remembrance of Allah as the origin. So Allah Subhana Allah says, was called Rob de caffeine FC cata.ru and workiva were doing and Jerry Minato Kohli bill will do we will soil wallet a camino hafid Allah subhanaw taala says to us, with Quran back
and this is the beginning the command to be from those who remember your Lord. And we said one of the most fundamental evidences for the importance of liquor. and the value of liquor in the life of a Muslim is that Allah azza wa jal commands you in several places are in the Quran to be from those who remember your Lord. So Allah says was called Rob back. Remember your Lord, be from those people who do the but then a Lost Planet, Allah gives us the first etiquette that we're going to look at what's called Rob caffeine fcwc. Remember your Lord to yourself.
And the meaning of to yourself, it's not that you don't say it with your tongue, not that you don't speak it, you speak it, but that it is to yourself, it's not a big screaming at the top of your voice. It's not about gathering lots of people together in unison. It is a simple matter of remembering Allah to yourself. Much as if somebody said to you read a book to yourself. If you are reading to yourself, you would perhaps hear a sound, but it would not be the kind of noise that kind of screaming and shouting and loud sort of noise. It's not an event. It's not it's not as you know, trying to let everybody hear what's called Rob back, if enough sick, remember your Lord to yourself,
Tada. And the meaning of tadagra in this ayah is that you humble yourself before Allah, that you act with humility, that you need to remember the need of you for Allah azza wa jal, this kind of need in this humility and this lowering of yourself in front of Allah. This is the essence of worship. And this is the meaning of worship in Islam. And a bad worship in Islam is for you to lower yourself and to humble yourself before your Lord to recognize your weaknesses and to recognize His perfection
subhanho wa Taala. So, this, this sort of lowering of yourself this acceptance, this understanding this admission that our last part of Allah is perfect and that he without him, you cannot be successful. And without him you would be not be able to be guided you would not be able to, to have any kind of success or any kind of
Good, all of the good that comes to us comes from him. And the fact that evil doesn't befall us comes from him. And this recognition and this acceptance is what Allah commands us to have when we remember Allah. So when we remember Allah, we remember Allah, humbling ourselves before Allah, lowering ourselves before Allah, acting with humility before Allah, recognizing that Allah is Allah Varney The one who doesn't need anything, and that our worship only benefits us It doesn't benefit him. subhanho wa Taala it only benefits us. So this recognition that Allah subhanaw taala is our Lord, this humbling and lowering of ourselves in front of Allah. And this is the highest station
that a person can achieve in this dunya to lower themselves before Allah, if you lower yourself before another human being, and you act with humility, and you are humble before another human being. This is something which is very low in the sight of the people. It's very, very low as your status. But when you humble yourself in front of Allah, when you lower yourself in front of Allah, when you admit that you are weak, and you have no ability, and the last part is infinitely powerful. And Allah subhanaw taala is the source of all good and allies the reason why evil hasn't touched you, when you lower yourself and humble yourself before Allah. This is when you achieve the highest
status that mankind can achieve, being a slave of Allah being a servant of Allah, and not being a slave and a servant of the people. And then our last pantalla continues what's called Rebecca feen, fck, tadanobu and wahiba and Tifa. Here, it means in fear, because when you call upon Allah as origin, you call upon Allah subhanho wa Taala with the fear of your shortcomings, that you haven't necessarily done everything right with the fear that maybe your deeds won't be accepted with the fear that if Allah wanted to punish you, it would be just, and your guidance relies upon the father of a lot of virtue and the bounty that Allah gives you and the blessing of Allah. And it is not from
your own self. And when you realize that you really deserve the Hellfire, and you actually deserve to be punished, and you haven't done anything which is worthy of the mercy of Allah. Then you call upon a line you remember a line in a state of fear. Because you realize that you are a person who has many shortcomings. Both you and I, both of us, all of us, we have so many shortcomings. And so these shortcomings, we fear that Allah subhanaw taala will perhaps not accept some of our deeds. When we sin, we fear that there's going to be an effect of that sin upon us and maybe Allah Spanish Allah will not accept some of the things that we do.
And Allah subhanaw taala commands a believer to be in this state. However you don't let the fear get to a point where you despair of the mercy of Allah because Allah azza wa jal tells us kuliah eva De La Nina As salam, O Allah and foresee him la takana to me Rahmatullah in de la jolla fille de Nova Jamia all my slaves who have transgressed against themselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah, Allah forgives all sins, so you do have fear. You do remember your sin. When you remember Allah, you do remember your shortcomings, but you don't let it get to the stage where you are. despairing of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Allah Subhana Allah says to us in the ayah, from the etiquettes of Vicar, we're doing well, Jerry Miller called without raising the voice without being especially loud. And this tells us something very important. It tells us that our Vicar should be with our tongue, as well as with our heart. We don't sit inside of our hearts and simply say, Subhan, Allah Subhana, Allah Alhamdulillah in the heart, it has to be in the heart and it has to be with the tongue as well. But when we do it with the tongue, we do it in a low voice, and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us in an authentic hadith, yeah, are you ha nurse or bureau Allah and forsaken, or people be
remember a lot to yourself or be soft, lower your voice, be calm and be tranquil in your lower your voice in your inner Camila Tara owner, awesome. Whatever Eva, you're not calling upon somebody who is deaf, nor are you calling upon somebody who is absent. You're not calling upon someone who is deaf, nor upon someone who is absent in a lady to the owner who sent me on corrib the one that you are calling upon him is semir. He He has everything curry. He is near to you in his knowledge of everything that you do here.
Nia to use a pan of water Allah, despite being above the heavens above his arch subhanho wa Taala he is near to you and his knowledge surrounds you. And he hears everything you say and he sees everything that you do, are caught up with either a high D comb, he is closer to one of you than the neck of his riding beast.
You know, you're riding on a, on a beast on a camel, and you think that you know that the animal is very, very close to you. Allah azza wa jal is closer to you, he hears everything he sees everything, he knows everything. And he surprised who Allah is above the seventh heaven above his arch, supine who were to Allah, and that does not stop him from being near to us, as origin. From the mountains of and the etiquettes of do our that we benefit is that we remember Allah with our tongues, and we don't necessarily remember a lot in the heart alone, but that the heart and the tongue are engaged and this is what we understand from the statement of Allah. So again, we're doing and gentlemen are
called. Also, what we benefit is when a Lost Planet Allah says bill will do we will call in the morning and the evening. And this tells us that from the etiquettes of Vicar is that we remember our law all throughout the day. And in every circumstance in every situation in our life. We remember Allah azza wa jal so we never go through a stage where we're not remembering Allah. We remember Allah when we wake up when we go to sleep, we remember a lie in the morning and the evening. We are constantly engaged in the remembrance of Allah as the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the bedwin, who said that the matters of Islam, the halaal, and the Haram and the shadow,
the rules and the regulations of Islam have become many Tell me something that I can do. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, keep your tongue wet with the remembrance of Allah, constantly remembering Allah below will do while outside in the morning and in the evening. No matter what time it is, during the day, no matter what situation you're in, you're constantly remembering Allah. And then Allah azza wa jal tells us while at the Camino VA feeling to not be from those who are negligent, heedless of Allah, forgetful of Allah. And we've talked about this in a previous episode, so we're not from those people who forget about a lot as religion. And then Allah
subhanaw taala continues and Allah tells us in the following Ayah in Medina in Arabic, Elias tech Burana and ada deti, where you said Pierre hoonah, who Wella who has to do, indeed those people who are with your Lord, ie the close angels, the beloved angels to Allah, they are not too proud to worship Him, and they glorify Him, and they prostrate to him. And some of the scholars they said that these angels, the purpose of Allah sojourn mentioning these angels in this ayah is to encourage you to do more and more worship. You hear that the situation of the angels and they are those who are beloved to Allah, they are those who don't disobey Allah, their situation is that they are not
too proud to remember him. And this pride is a reason why many people forget the remembrance of Allah. They too engaged in their own selves, they're too engaged in their own lives and so they forget Allah subhanaw taala. So we should not be like that. And it encourages us that because they are worshipping Allah, all of that time, and they are so engaged in the worship of Allah that whole time, then we also need to try as much as we are able to do to be engaged in the vicar of Allah. So these are some of the etiquettes of remembering Allah subhanaw taala based upon this ayah and I do hope you will join us for a future episode of the power of Vicar Jazakallah halen was Salam alaykum
