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 our 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 origin. So Allah Subhana Allah says, what could rub the caffeine fck tadanobu and workiva wahiba we're doing and Jerry Minato Kohli bill will do we will soil wallet a camino halfling Allah subhanaw taala says to us, with kurupt 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 decode. and the value of decode 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 that. But then a Lost Planet, Allah gives us the first etiquette that we're going to look at what's called rub the caffeine fcwc. Remember your Lord to yourself.
And the meaning of to yourself is 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're 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 add on. 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, Rwanda 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 and 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, 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 panel to 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 a lot commands is 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 Vani 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 Estonia to lower themselves before a law. 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 that Allah subhanaw taala 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 he's here it means in fear, because when you call upon a law as urgent, 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, the virtue and the bounty that Allah gives you another 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 lion, you remember a lion 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 subhanaw taala 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 forcing him la takana to me Rahmatullah in the La Jolla, la 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 liquor, we're doing well Jerry Miller code without raising the voice without being especially loud. And this tells us something very important. It tells us that our vehicle 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 Hannah's are below 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 dua, for in Nikola Tesla owner, awesome, whatever Ava 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 levy to their owner who semi on the one that you are calling upon him, his semir he hears everything corrib he is near to you in his knowledge of everything that you do, he's near to use a pint of water either, despite being above the heavens above his arch subhanho wa Taala he is near to you and his knowledge surrounds you. And he he has
everything you say and he sees everything that you do are karabo Isla haidakhan 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 he he has everything he sees everything he knows everything. And he subhanho wa Taala is above the seventh heaven above his arch subhanho wa Taala and that does not stop him for being near to us as the origin from the manners 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 alarm. So again, what do we know gentlemen are cold. Also, what we benefit is when a Lost Planet Allah says bill will do we will address all 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 you'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 Billa 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 well at camino overfeeding Do 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 Allah azza wa jal, and then Allah subhanaw taala continues and Allah azza wa jal tells us in the following Ayah in Medina in de la BK, Elias tech Burana and ada deti, where you set the homeowner who wala 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 azza wa jal 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're 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 a decode 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 just akmola hyaluron was Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
