Salam aleikum. Tonight's name is Al look tidier. Allah subhana wa Tada is a NOC Tabby

00:00:08 --> 00:00:41

and Moqtada is a lot like our last name l Claudia, in that it's talking about Allah's ability, Allah was able to do whatever he wants, there's nothing that's too difficult for Allah. But a looked at it draws our attention to something just a little bit different. It draws our attention away from the things that Allah is creating. And it draws our attention to the ease with which a law creates.

00:00:42 --> 00:01:17

Maybe you've tried to do something that you've never done before. Maybe you've tried to bake a cake or make cookies or even something like make a meal, or build something, the first time you did it. Maybe it was harder than you thought. Maybe it looked easy. But then once you got involved in it, you figured out okay, this isn't as easy as I thought it was. Next time I'll have to do things a little bit differently. And that's how we learn.

00:01:18 --> 00:02:16

Well, when it comes to what Allah does, he never experiences anything like that. There's no power or force or difficulty that resists Allah's Will or Allah's creation, there is no barrier or force that's pushing against what Allah wishes to happen. This is really important because sometimes people get afraid, they get afraid of evil, they get afraid of the Devil or the jinn or things like this. And people get so afraid of evil that they almost make it seem like it has a power to stop what Allah wills or that it has a power to struggle against what Allah once and that's just not true. Allah subhana wa Tada, he's got no force to oppose him. Everything that Allah wills to happen

00:02:16 --> 00:02:29

happens with complete ease. There's no barrier, there's no sort of exhaustion. Allah doesn't have to exert a lot of effort to make things happen like you and I do.

00:02:30 --> 00:02:49

So when we realize this, we find out that evil is really a small thing. And what gives evil power in the world. It's not evil itself. Because evil is only a suggestion. It's our choice. Whether we follow evil suggestions or not.

00:02:51 --> 00:03:16

We have the choice whether to make something good or make something bad. And Allah subhanaw taala has made everything especially the good, extremely easy. There's no barrier to what he wants to bring about. That's because Allah is Eleanor tidier. And that's all for tonight, As Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah
