or Coleby. The item Bala Wakulla Beratan phenom

00:03:09--> 00:03:21

indeed all praise and thanks is due to Allah subhanaw taala The Lord of the Worlds I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except him subhanho wa Taala

00:03:22--> 00:03:29

and I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was Salam is his final messenger.

00:03:33--> 00:03:40

So I guess just following on from the words that were mentioned, prior to me, coming here to the member

00:03:42--> 00:03:49

Muslims, we recognize the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala is what defines you and I as a Muslim,

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

knowing our Lord Rapala al Amin,

00:03:54--> 00:03:57

and the more you know about Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:58--> 00:04:07

the more you will find yourself having fear, trust hope to what could reliance upon Allah subhanaw taala

00:04:08--> 00:04:19

our beloved Nabi Muhammad Salla Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam was quite sorry Han explicit and clear with his companions, telling them that indeed I fear Allah more than any one of you.

00:04:21--> 00:04:29

And from those reasons, is that Allah terracotta Allah allowed him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to have an understanding

00:04:31--> 00:04:33

of who Allah subhanaw taala is

00:04:35--> 00:04:40

as the Muslim we think about the reality of who is Allah

00:04:41--> 00:04:52

if we think about the G burn, the new Doom, the Bihar everything, sees skies, Earth's

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

all of that is in praise of Allah subhanaw taala well, okay, let Africa he learned well, okay, let Africa Hoonah to speak

00:05:00--> 00:05:07

however you do not understand or comprehend how they praise and glorify Allah subhanaw taala but we know that they do.

00:05:10--> 00:05:29

He is Allah subhanaw taala and how you live healer, your moot the EverLiving, who does not die, that he is our hammer raw, he mean, the most merciful, of anything that can be merciful, you and I can be merciful. But of course that is restricted.

00:05:30--> 00:05:37

But Allah subhanaw taala is the Most Merciful. He is Allah the bat Hill molk whoo hoo holla holy che in cadets

00:05:38--> 00:05:48

that in his hands to hand over to Allah is the ownership of the Dominion, the whole of the universe, and that he has ability over all things.

00:05:50--> 00:05:57

He is the one subhanaw taala who merely has to say Kuhn, for your could be an it is

00:05:59--> 00:06:12

not something that needs time to reset itself. Not something that needs time to grow. If Allah Allah Allah commands it be, it is, and he subhanaw taala is Allah hydro.

00:06:14--> 00:06:18

The One, the Irresistible subhanho wa taala.

00:06:19--> 00:06:20

What are you Harriman

00:06:21--> 00:06:23

and what a deprivation,

00:06:24--> 00:06:26

it is to any of the creation,

00:06:27--> 00:06:35

that they do not recognize this. Even those that they believe every single day that they are worshipping the One who created them.

00:06:36--> 00:06:38

They believe that they are doing good.

00:06:39--> 00:06:45

However, all of that is to no avail. All of it serves no benefit to them.

00:06:46--> 00:06:52

For this reason, Allah subhanaw taala commands us for Adam and Noah who La Ilaha illa Allah,

00:06:53--> 00:06:58

that you should surely have knowledge, have knowledge of who Allah subhanaw taala is

00:07:00--> 00:07:10

while still fiddly than that, and then seek forgiveness of your sins. So having knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala is not something merely a small matter.

00:07:11--> 00:07:33

It is not something that you acquire in five minutes. It's not a theoretical knowledge, that knowing Allah subhanaw taala is living by the methodology, or by what Allah subhanaw taala commanded you as a group, as a creation as some being that has needs from the moment that you wake up.

00:07:34--> 00:07:41

From the moment you wake up as a proof that you were in need because you needed sleep, but you needed rest for you to continue in the next day.

00:07:44--> 00:07:54

You have a lord United eek Subhanallah you have a Lord who calls upon you every night, who is they're asking me for forgiveness that I may forgive them.

00:07:56--> 00:08:03

If the Muslim truly understands who their lord is, that they will truly be living La Ilaha illa Allah

00:08:05--> 00:08:31

and that your understanding of this Kalama is so important. It is the foundation of absolutely everything. It is where everything starts raising your iman having her show and your Salah in the days that you first in the month of Ramadan when you perform hajj when you make the vicar of Allah subhanaw taala and anything that that you do in the path of Allah subhanaw taala the foundation of that is what

00:08:33--> 00:08:40

La La Ilaha illa Allah, that there is none worthy of worship, except Allah subhanaw taala

00:08:42--> 00:09:03

so Ramadan photogra The Allahu Anhu Mara bepaalde did not obey the law. Remember the Allahu Anhu he passes by Paul had he been obey the law and he sees upon the face of Paul Hara the Allahu Anhu and Houthi Elan October that he has somehow feeling looks down. There's something wrong with him that he can tell.

00:09:04--> 00:09:06

He says mylocker Yeah, well.

00:09:07--> 00:09:12

He said What is the matter with you? otol has maybe your wife cause you to be distressed or to feel down?

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

He says no, no are more

00:09:17--> 00:09:25

in the Senate to rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I heard the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:09:26--> 00:09:44

Hadith and that he said something while merman Annie Allahu Anhu al Qudra Allah here and they'll note, he said, I wasn't able to ask him the finishing or the completion of what this phrase was, because of the situation that he was in. He started to set him until he passed away.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

But he said, Well, what are the Allahu Anhu? He said that the prophets Allah Allahu Allahu Allah wa sallam said in Allah mocha Lima tundla, your Kulu Abu Dawn, in the multi il Assura caller Hello, new Juana for Salah who and who could have

00:10:00--> 00:10:20

Another new another rewire current level neuron Lisa effetti. One adjuster to Hoover Oh hula Jada Neela, Rohan della note that there is a word, a statement that if a slave says this at the time of their death, that they will find a comfort

00:10:22--> 00:10:29

they will find a comfort not the just themselves, but their bodies in their souls. A removal of all

00:10:30--> 00:10:40

problems in your mind, and they will find this Raha at the time of death. He said I didn't know what would the completion of that sentence was What is this? Kelemen

00:10:41--> 00:10:56

and so we're a model the Allahu Anhu he says in the Alamo Mahi. I know what that word is. I know what that word is, if you say it, you will have this virtue and this blessing at the time of death.

00:10:58--> 00:10:59

And he says what is this word?

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

He says, Amara the Allahu Anhu

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

La ilaha illallah

00:11:07--> 00:11:15

palheiro The Allahu Anhu he says Sadhak. Here will Allah He he? He said by Allah that is the word.

00:11:17--> 00:11:18

So what does it tell us?

00:11:19--> 00:11:24

This tells us and amongst the many a hadith about the virtues of saying La ilaha illa Allah

00:11:25--> 00:11:33

that if the time were at the time of death, the abbot has the ability to say this at the time of death, they will have this blessing

00:11:34--> 00:11:40

that their bodies and their souls will find our AHA that they will find the comfort like no other

00:11:42--> 00:11:50

than Allah subhanaw taala himself testified La ilaha illallah that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah.

00:11:52--> 00:12:10

And the many debates, the many conversations that we see many of it is surrounding peripheral issues, issues which are not the foundation of all matters. And then you find the conclusion of many of the discussions. Really peter out to nothing.

00:12:12--> 00:12:23

The Muslim whenever they're conversing about the deen of Allah subhanaw taala when you're talking about the HAC, always go back to the foundation of why you why we are here.

00:12:24--> 00:12:26

And that is to worship Allah subhanaw taala alone,

00:12:28--> 00:12:38

that no prophet, no messenger came before from the time of them Alehissalaam came except with this call of la ilaha illallah

00:12:39--> 00:13:09

wa ala Cadabra Athena fecal matter lasuna that we send to every nation a messenger what was this call an Ebola which terrible taught to worship Allah alone and to avoid all false deities. This was the sole reason that the messengers are sent to the cult sent to the creation to remind them of their purpose and shape one is how do you see as keen for you to indulge and be busy with other things.

00:13:11--> 00:13:14

So it is a statement that you will benefit from at the time of death.

00:13:17--> 00:13:20

It is a statement that you will benefit on yo 1pm.

00:13:21--> 00:13:56

And because of the time we don't have the ability to go through all of these a hadith which are so beautiful, about the heaviness, about the weight of saying La ilaha illAllah. We know that Musa ra salatu salam, a no other he said, Musa Ali Salim asked Allah Jalla wa Ala for a specific dua, a specific supplication that he would be able to say by himself, nothing great to be said. Then what? La ilaha illAllah. know Ali Salam on his deathbed, giving our SEER

00:13:57--> 00:14:27

an advice to his sons at the time of death, about two things to be commanded with and two things to be forbidden, the forbidden, a Sherco will kibble shirk and arrogance. The first command is what is to know that that La ilaha illallah, if that was placed on the scale on one side, and that everything else in this universe was placed on the other side, that La Ilaha illa Allah would outweigh that.

00:14:30--> 00:14:33

That Allah subhanaw taala on your milk em

00:14:34--> 00:14:49

by the Shiva by the intercession of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not after the first or second or third, that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam will go back to Allah Tabata, Kota, Allah Newman Qiyamah, interceding on behalf of his own,

00:14:51--> 00:14:54

asking people to be saved on the day of judgment.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

And in the long hadith of a Shiva at the fourth time, that the Prophet SAW

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

Allahu alayhi salam goes back to Allah Allah Allah Allah and prostrates in front of Allah subhanaw taala

00:15:07--> 00:15:10

but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told to raise your head,

00:15:11--> 00:15:14

intercede and your intercession will be accepted,

00:15:16--> 00:15:25

and that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam calls upon Allah Tabata, Kota Allah, for those who said La Ilaha illa Allah to be taken out of the Hellfire,

00:15:27--> 00:15:32

those who are placed in the Hellfire because of the lack of good deeds that they had

00:15:33--> 00:15:44

but the intercession of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, asking for his own money to be saved. But Allah Tabata, Kota, Allah will save certain individuals, because they said La Ilaha illa Allah

00:15:46--> 00:16:00

and the famous hadith of Alberta, that maybe we don't again have time to go through in its entirety, that a man will come on the ELMO piano, the Hadith, narrated by Abdullah binominal, the Allahu Anhu man, that a man he has called on the day of judgment

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

and he has shown his deeds and his deeds are written on 99 scrolls, to start to notice the ruinous Agila each one of those schools scrolls is muddled bizarre as far as the person can see 99 As far as he can see,

00:16:19--> 00:16:22

on those scrolls, his deeds are shown.

00:16:25--> 00:16:33

Shortcomings taxies didn't do this. They didn't do that. So it is said to him

00:16:34--> 00:16:43

a tune keto shaman howdy. Do you disagree with anything that has been said here? Or anything has been written down for you here?

00:16:45--> 00:16:50

The person has no excuse not to say I can't argue with anything that is written there in front of me.

00:16:52--> 00:16:56

So the person is individual, no doubt will feel at a loss.

00:16:58--> 00:17:01

But Allah subhanaw taala reminds this individual

00:17:04--> 00:17:05

level mullion

00:17:06--> 00:17:09

that there was no oppression and no injustice on this day.

00:17:11--> 00:17:18

Did the angels that they write something that's not correct. on your on your schools? They wrote everything down.

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

The mother Aiko they wrote everything down.

00:17:23--> 00:17:24

Kill all mancha TV.

00:17:26--> 00:17:30

You may have forgot what you did a few days ago. What you did last week doesn't mean that you didn't do it.

00:17:32--> 00:17:33

You forgot what you did last year.

00:17:35--> 00:17:41

Remember, you fasted one day this week. You fasted shallot Allah one day on the day of alpha

00:17:42--> 00:17:49

and that for that you can receive the forgiveness of two years of yours minor sins.

00:17:52--> 00:18:06

The exchange there cannot be fair. But Allah subhanaw taala is our hammer Rohini Allah subhanaw taala wants to have mercy upon you. Once you turn back to Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:18:07--> 00:18:11

So this individual is then asked have you got an excuse?

00:18:12--> 00:18:18

I look at Hassan, who you have Roger, you got anyone can give you any Hassan that says I've got nothing else.

00:18:21--> 00:18:31

The person sees themselves in complete loss. What is the outcome for this person? He sees himself no injustice today. The Hellfire is my destination.

00:18:33--> 00:18:38

The person is prepared. But then it says, For two Curatola, who betta cotton.

00:18:39--> 00:18:47

And that this Pitaka is called if you like is is taken out and out upon this vitarka is what

00:18:49--> 00:18:51

the testimony of faith of this person

00:18:53--> 00:18:59

this person, they said a shadow in La ilaha illallah wa shadow Ana Mohammed Abu who would have thought

00:19:00--> 00:19:02

this person upheld that kill him.

00:19:04--> 00:19:07

And so all of these scrolls are placed on one side of the museum.

00:19:10--> 00:19:14

And this betta discard of the shahada is placed on the other.

00:19:15--> 00:19:22

And so the beta of la ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasool Allah outweighs all of those mistakes that that person did.

00:19:25--> 00:19:26

And so the person is saved.

00:19:29--> 00:19:36

So how important that is for us to remember the meaning the true meaning of la ilaha illallah

00:19:38--> 00:19:44

Akula Acharya already heard the austere Villa Holly welcome McAleenan festival hero in Naboo. Carnival Farah.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

There were other early he was such a big marine

00:20:04--> 00:20:12

or praise belongs to Allah, Allah Allah me the peace of blessings of Allah subhanaw taala Allah be upon His final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa seldom.

00:20:15--> 00:20:17

So the statement of la ilaha illa Allah

00:20:19--> 00:20:25

is not nearly lip service. It is not something that you just merely say and rely on that.

00:20:27--> 00:20:36

And the prophets Allah Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam made it very clear about what it means to say La Ilaha illa Allah and there was an amazing Hadith.

00:20:38--> 00:20:46

I say this incident that is amazing incident how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam differentiated about a person when they say La ilaha illallah

00:20:48--> 00:20:50

the hadith is a dependable pneumonic.

00:20:51--> 00:20:58

What are the Allahu Anhu this companion Shahida bedre was a participant of Bethel

00:21:00--> 00:21:04

and he is from the unsolved and he is from Alaska to the Allahu Anhu.

00:21:06--> 00:21:22

The first part of the hadith is that he mentioned that his eyesight is is disappearing, he's unable to see he's unable to lead his people in prayer anymore. So he asked the Prophet alayhi salatu salam to pray in his house. So he has permission to pray in his home.

00:21:23--> 00:21:32

And so the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam says, I will come and I will pray in your home. The very next day the Prophet Ernesto salaam prays in the house of your dependable Almighty Allah and

00:21:35--> 00:21:46

the people that gather around the house, but Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is praying in full Ann's house, not next week, not a month later the very next day.

00:21:48--> 00:21:54

And so when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam offered to raka that this was a permission for you. After a lot of

00:21:56--> 00:21:58

the people they came around the house.

00:22:00--> 00:22:04

And as they were looking around, they said

00:22:05--> 00:22:11

where is my donation? Another companion Malika do donation.

00:22:12--> 00:22:14

Another companion who participated in better

00:22:16--> 00:22:18

one of them said, Allah Allah who I cannot see Him.

00:22:19--> 00:22:21

And then somebody shouted out

00:22:22--> 00:22:23

in Oman orthok

00:22:24--> 00:22:25

He's a hypocrite.

00:22:26--> 00:22:31

He gives His ear to them on ar 15 I see him sitting with them on ar 15

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said letter Cordelia

00:22:37--> 00:22:37

Don't say that.

00:22:39--> 00:22:40

Don't say that.

00:22:41--> 00:22:43

Allah Tala who call

00:22:44--> 00:22:49

Do you know see that? Malik with the equation he says La Ilaha illa Allah

00:22:51--> 00:22:53

or Yabba Talib either Lika which holla

00:22:54--> 00:23:06

that he says Allah Ilaha illa Allah but he seeks by that statement, the countenance and the face of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada the monarchy, oh, they may say Illallah that can lead to freedom. It will not benefit them.

00:23:08--> 00:23:18

But this companion, he says it from his heart. Carly Sandmann Calbee so there's a difference in a person who says merely La ilaha illa seeking what?

00:23:19--> 00:23:28

And the person who says La Ilaha illa Allah Khan is admin kalbi. Just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to Abu Hurayrah

00:23:29--> 00:23:33

so there's a difference between the people when they say La ilaha illAllah.

00:23:35--> 00:23:49

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam praised the person who was not present. And he was far from our network. In fact, this individual of the Allahu Anhu was sent by the Prophet alayhi salam to participate in the bringing down of Masjid Iraq.

00:23:50--> 00:24:03

So he was far from hypocrisy. But the Prophet sallallahu wasallam testified that he said La ilaha illallah and he sought Allah's Countenance and faced by that so every single one of us when we say La Ilaha illa Allah.

00:24:05--> 00:24:06

You do the Quran is a miracle,

00:24:08--> 00:24:18

that you do that sincerely. And purely from your heart, with knowledge, in truth with sincerity, in love. In truth,

00:24:19--> 00:24:42

you say all of this, knowing this particular statement, there was no greater honor than a person knowing La ilaha illallah and there was no greater humiliation than a person who does not know let Ilaha illa Allah or a person who knows it and turns away from it. For not asked not to be away from a bar lien or MCDU valet him something we ask Allah subhanaw taala every time in our salah.

00:24:43--> 00:25:00

We ask Allah subhanaw taala and your element naffaa We ask Allah subhanaw taala and shadow Allah Illallah Amin Kobina Hall is on the verge hello hello Allah. Allah Allah Allah Muhammad in early Mohammed Kumar Selita Allah Ibrahim louder earlier Amina kami de Majid Allah

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

Akuma is an Islam and willingness to demean Allah who is Islam or when a Muslim in a banner it never dunya has no Villa that he has an open Addabbo nor welcome masala
