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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

mid level hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While earlier he was asked me he remind

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

all of you or most of you should have a booklet like this, which contains the program and some information.

00:00:21--> 00:00:53

And Mashallah helpfully also contains pages where you're able to write some notes, and some benefits from each of the lectures. So I would encourage you all so that you benefit not just from today, but you're able to benefit from the lectures in the future, that you can refer back to those talks, and the many benefits and shallow tarla that you will all benefit from, in this particular day, and I asked a loss of penalty to make it a beneficial day for us all. And that deserves to be on the heavy scales of our good deeds on the Day of Judgment along me.

00:00:56--> 00:01:16

When you look at the names of Allah subhanaw taala, some of them are quite specific, in the meaning or the benefit that you take from them, even though it is infinite, with regards to the reality. So when you talk about the old provider, the one who sustains You know, you're talking about a particular thing

00:01:18--> 00:01:30

allows guiding you and that's a form of sustenance or, or provisions or food or wealth, or Rahim, a specific type of mercy that may be given to certain servants.

00:01:31--> 00:01:49

And then there are other names, which are even more encompassing, which are not necessarily to a specific thing, but are open to many things. And from those names like a law upon which all of the names they go back to Subhana, WA Tada.

00:01:50--> 00:01:53

And also, Alan mujeeb,

00:01:54--> 00:02:10

the one who answers the one who answers your supplications The one who answers your prayers, the one who is there always to listen and hear everything that you say everything that you may have in your heart.

00:02:13--> 00:02:28

I will mention a number of yet that Allah subhanaw taala tells us and it is so important when when looking and understanding and wanting to benefit from the names of Allah subhana wa tada that we look how Allah subhanaw taala explains things to us.

00:02:29--> 00:02:35

So Allah so panel to Allah tells us, yes Allah Who among his words he will

00:02:36--> 00:02:42

that everybody or everything in the heavens and the earth and everything that is between them.

00:02:44--> 00:02:44

They asked him

00:02:46--> 00:02:49

every day we are constantly asking Allah subhanaw taala

00:02:50--> 00:03:01

maybe individually 10s of things we are asking Allah subhanaw taala at least 17 times a day individually. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide us.

00:03:02--> 00:03:04

That goes without saying the different needs that we have.

00:03:06--> 00:03:08

Allah subhanaw taala says couldn't do

00:03:10--> 00:03:22

that every day, every moment of our existence, that he subhanho wa Taala is at work and is aware of what we are asking.

00:03:24--> 00:03:32

Nothing bypasses Allah subhanaw taala even that fleeting thought that came into your mind you didn't even mention it.

00:03:33--> 00:03:34

You didn't even see it.

00:03:36--> 00:03:41

As the last panel to Allah tells us concerning zecharia alehissalaam

00:03:42--> 00:03:50

when he said Elisa Lam is boohoo NIDA and Sophia that when he called upon his Lord, with a secret call,

00:03:51--> 00:03:58

the interpretation of the understanding of this word Kofi has many and from them is that he didn't say anything.

00:03:59--> 00:04:03

That he said within himself that he wanted not to be left alone,

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

that he wanted a family to succeed him.

00:04:08--> 00:04:10

This was something that was inside him

00:04:11--> 00:04:12

that he didn't mention it.

00:04:13--> 00:04:19

But Allah subhanaw taala answered that desire or the cool that was in his heart.

00:04:20--> 00:04:33

So Allah subhanaw taala will answer your supplications answer your calls, whether you mentioned it or did something that was is important inside your heart.

00:04:35--> 00:04:42

Also penalty other union mo karbolyn NIDA also the loss of penalty I will give to you

00:04:43--> 00:04:47

an answer you even though you haven't even asked for it yet.

00:04:49--> 00:04:56

Because this is the mercy of Allah subhana wa tada and this is our last panel to Allah sees for his creation.

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

So you may question why is that

00:05:00--> 00:05:18

A father sees his son who is sick and ill, the son remains quiet. He doesn't say very much. But the father takes him to the doctor to get the necessary medicine. And by a lesser penalty and his permission, the son is cured. The son didn't ask to go to the doctor, the son didn't even complain.

00:05:19--> 00:05:30

But the Father's love for the son or the mother's love for the son or daughter was so much so that before they even asked for it, they wanted to help them

00:05:31--> 00:05:46

and wanted to give something to them, who is beloved to them. So then you ask yourself, could I be that person? Am I that person who is beloved to Allah? That Allah Subhana Allah will give to me before I even ask?

00:05:47--> 00:05:50

Allah subhana wa tada can love you

00:05:51--> 00:05:56

so much so that he will give you things even before you ask for them.

00:05:57--> 00:06:05

And the greatest thing that was ever given to you, maybe you didn't ask for it was Lee men. belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala.

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

So we have this blessing.

00:06:10--> 00:06:19

This blessing that the last panel has given to us we can call upon him at any time. The companions are the Allahu anhu. They said, Yasser Allah

00:06:20--> 00:06:30

is Allah. caribou Mina is close to us so that he can hear us or is he far away that we need to raise our voices?

00:06:32--> 00:06:34

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:06:35--> 00:06:38

his response million a verse from the Quran

00:06:39--> 00:07:00

where Allah subhanaw taala tells our Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and tells us and informs us will either ser la kariba, the need for in the corrib Oh Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if your servants or your companions, they ask about me, then tell them I am close

00:07:04--> 00:07:25

to Buddha today, either their honor that I will answer the call of the one who is calling upon me, fellas ijebu Lee, then let them answer the call that I have given to them. Well, you mean to be alone You're soon and let them have a man and belief in me so that they will be rightly guided.

00:07:28--> 00:07:40

Allah Subhana Allah tells us that His name is mujeeb into the Quran with regards to the story of solly alayhis salaam.

00:07:42--> 00:07:47

When a loss of panels Allah tells us that he at least said M was sent to the people of the mood.

00:07:49--> 00:07:53

When Allah so panel dialysis, LS removed a home for leha.

00:07:55--> 00:07:59

That Saleh ra Salaam was sent to the people of the mood.

00:08:00--> 00:08:02

Kala Jacobi comi

00:08:03--> 00:08:12

Oh, my people are Buddha law, worship your load mela Camilla Hina euro, that you do not have any Lord besides Him.

00:08:14--> 00:08:32

And then he mentioned the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala placed on them. He is the one who raised you up and allowed you to build upon this earth. First of a few. So seek Allah so panel to Allah is forgiveness from tuvo LA and then repent and return to Him.

00:08:33--> 00:08:42

in Nairobi, caribou Mooji indeed my lord is close, and he is the Forever and always answering

00:08:43--> 00:08:47

so Allah subhanaw taala always will answer our supplications

00:08:48--> 00:09:00

and if you really think about it, when you make dua to Allah subhanaw taala that you ask for one particular thing, your A B, give me this, oh my lord, give me this grant me this grant me that.

00:09:02--> 00:09:09

And then you're waiting for the answer. You're waiting for you what you asked for to appear in front of you.

00:09:10--> 00:09:15

Do you believe or do you know that what you are asking for is actually

00:09:16--> 00:09:19

in your benefit? Or is the very best for you?

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

as the owner of the hotel and

00:09:23--> 00:09:29

he said that I don't I am not concerning myself with a My dog is actually answered.

00:09:31--> 00:09:45

Because I know a lawsuit penalty either hears everything and will answer everything. But what I concern myself with is the data itself. What I will ask a lawsuit penalty either for

00:09:48--> 00:09:51

so when we look at the Quran more closely,

00:09:52--> 00:09:55

and the loss of penalty Allah mentions is sort of tell me

00:09:56--> 00:09:57

and myself when I look through the Quran

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

There isn't a place in the Quran where Allah penalty Allah mentions a sequence of like this

00:10:06--> 00:10:09

sort of 10 Mb meaning the chapter of the prophets.

00:10:10--> 00:10:18

And then this chapter Allah so panel to Allah mentions the stories, albeit quite brief, regarding a number of

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

profits

00:10:22--> 00:10:27

and their situation how on why they called upon Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:10:28--> 00:10:42

So also penalty and this is in sorbitol ambia, from verses like 83 onwards, verse after verse after verse of the verse, and it is amazing to Panama, how each of these prophets, Allah Himself them, that they went through

00:10:44--> 00:10:45

difficulties and trials,

00:10:47--> 00:10:51

and that they called upon their Lord, and how Allah Subhana Allah answered them,

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

but not only answered them,

00:10:55--> 00:10:56

but gave extra

00:10:57--> 00:11:08

gave extra and this is how also the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was that when he was asked the question, at least Elisa to Samuel, give them an answer, he also give another benefit.

00:11:10--> 00:11:24

So when we take the example for example, a Ube alayhis salam who went through so many years of difficulty of disease and illness, many of his closest people, his family, they fled and they want to know him.

00:11:26--> 00:11:31

He said, As a last panel to Allah, Allah wa tells us why you but isn't.

00:11:33--> 00:11:37

And remember when you bought a salon when he called upon his load

00:11:38--> 00:11:40

aneema center your book,

00:11:41--> 00:11:43

that the friction has affected me.

00:11:44--> 00:11:50

He Elisa Lam mentioned a walker, what was happening to him right there. And then

00:11:51--> 00:12:03

that this was from a loss of penalty, either a direct conversation, from a prophet to his creator, oh my lord and affliction and illnesses disease has afflicted me.

00:12:05--> 00:12:15

Many of us What do we say? Allow mfine or lock your mean. But what are you bought any seller? What did he say, we are humbled me.

00:12:17--> 00:12:22

And you are the Most Merciful. You are the Most Merciful of those who can be merciful.

00:12:24--> 00:12:33

That years and years and years of disease and illness. He called upon his Lord reminding himself the reality

00:12:35--> 00:12:41

that Allah subhanaw taala is the most merciful, that this difficulty that he was going through either he said them

00:12:42--> 00:12:44

was a mercy from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah.

00:12:46--> 00:12:48

The when that person is given

00:12:51--> 00:12:56

the news that they are sick, or they are ill, or even a terminal illness.

00:12:58--> 00:13:06

It can sound quite scary that when a person is given the news of a terminal illness, meaning that you won't live forever.

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

But isn't that the case for all of us.

00:13:12--> 00:13:17

We're all terminal in some way, because our lives will all come to an end in one way or another.

00:13:19--> 00:13:20

But it brings reality.

00:13:21--> 00:13:35

And it brings death as a reality to those who hear that news, that you have a terminal illness, that your life may not be as long as you first thought. And you may know the way that you will die.

00:13:37--> 00:13:54

But for the most of the for most of us that is maybe hidden from us, to some extent that we don't know how or what state I will die in where there's an illness or something else. But ultimately, our time here, it will all come to an end.

00:13:56--> 00:14:12

Maybe that person will only live to 45 or 50 maybe another person will only live to 60 or 65. What is the difference between the two. The first person was given a terminal illness the other was given no such thing as a terminal illness, the difference may be 10 or 15 years the blink of an eye

00:14:15--> 00:14:19

so lots of panels Allah tells us concerning a uvala he said

00:14:20--> 00:14:23

when he made this dryer cooling upon Allah subhanaw taala

00:14:24--> 00:14:26

and when you look very carefully,

00:14:27--> 00:14:28

what is he asking for?

00:14:30--> 00:14:52

And the Mr. Nia bore and affliction has harmed me is as affected me or under our hammer Rohini and that you are the Most Merciful. Where is the statement? Oh look, you will me Oh Allah remove this Bella this calamity from me. It doesn't exist it is not there. But yet Allah subhanaw taala tells us first the journal

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

that we answered his supplication for Kashif bohemian born and that we removed

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

do any harm had afflicted him?

00:15:04--> 00:15:06

It didn't end this panel ah

00:15:07--> 00:15:12

what a no who Hello who are mithila whom I met them in Indiana

00:15:13--> 00:15:14

and that we gave him

00:15:15--> 00:15:29

and his family and those who are like them a mercy from Us will the karate Lee Aberdeen and this serves as a reminder for those who are truly served or true servants to Allah subhanahu Wata Anna

00:15:32--> 00:15:39

an ayah later, a verse later or two verses later, a loss of penalty Allah mentions the story of Eunice Allah He said then

00:15:42--> 00:15:45

when Allah so panel to Allah tells us that was a noon

00:15:46--> 00:15:55

when Eunice la Salim is the bamboo wall diva that he left his people in an angry state, and that he thought that nobody would be able to overcome him.

00:15:57--> 00:16:07

And when he was swallowed by the whale, in the belly of the whale, where ordinarily you think the person's life will be over? That he called upon Allah subhanaw taala.

00:16:09--> 00:16:16

For the fifth Zulu met, in the darkness in the place that he was in What did he say? And Illa

00:16:17--> 00:16:21

Super harnack in the countrymen of body mean

00:16:23--> 00:16:38

that there was no one worthy of worship except you. Allah subhana wa tada and that I am truly for those who have done wrong. Again, where is the asking of Allah subhanho wa Taala here

00:16:39--> 00:16:43

but it is a reminder to himself who is in control of everything.

00:16:45--> 00:16:47

So when we call upon Allah Mooji

00:16:48--> 00:16:53

it is not necessarily about that you have to open your heart and what do you want.

00:16:55--> 00:17:09

Of course you are required and it is good for you to do that. But at the same time when you're calling upon Mooji that you praise Allah and you remember the situation that you are in and then whatever the situation that you're in,

00:17:10--> 00:17:19

that he is our hammer Rahimi that He is the Most Merciful and that there is no one deserving of any worship except him Subhanahu wa Tada.

00:17:20--> 00:17:30

Again, this particular situation, that Allah subhanaw taala saved Eunice it Salim foster Giovanna Allah again Allah Jalla wa Allah tells us and we saved him

00:17:32--> 00:17:37

when a Jaina hoomin alum, and we saved him from feeling down

00:17:38--> 00:17:40

and weak, depressed.

00:17:42--> 00:17:52

But it wasn't just for him Ali Salim. But Allah subhanaw taala tells us what other liqueur noon meaning and likewise we will save the believers.

00:17:53--> 00:18:00

So we take example from the dura or the way that Eunice la Salaam called upon his Lord,

00:18:02--> 00:18:13

not mentioning our law save me from the belly of the whale, but rather praising and loss of penalty and recognizing his creator who he worships. And that Allah subhana wa tada

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

answered that,

00:18:17--> 00:18:19

because Allah subhanaw taala knows while you are mentioning that

00:18:21--> 00:18:26

it is not as though you have to explain things to Allah subhanaw taala in the most eloquent way,

00:18:27--> 00:18:46

when one of the companions who came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and more out of the blue gentlemen, a young young companion, he said, Yeah, rasulillah I see you and more authority Allahu Allah wa salam, ala I see you, when you in your institute. Did you make a long schedule that I can hear you mixing lots of lots of drama.

00:18:48--> 00:18:51

But my my drama is not as eloquent as yours.

00:18:52--> 00:18:58

What can I say? What can I do? So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, What do you say in your suit?

00:19:01--> 00:19:11

He said, I simply say allow me in the local agenda, where I will be coming and not Oh Allah, I asked you for the jinn and to save me from the fire.

00:19:12--> 00:19:28

The Prophet sallallahu I sent them gave him hope. He said, how Allah human wouldn't in these two things that you're speaking about? And did you ask Allah penalty and everything we asked for? Is these two things in essence, or Allah answer give us the gender and to save us from the hellfire.

00:19:30--> 00:19:37

When you look further in the sorted MB, as I mentioned to you, and I recommend you all vertical overcome if you can go to the Quran and just see how our last panel

00:19:39--> 00:19:50

explains the position of the prophets Allah he misses them, and how they called upon the last panel with Allah and how Allah subhanaw taala gave to them and gave them more

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

like the story of zecharia alehissalaam that he called upon his Lord was that Korea is near the Arab and we mentioned earlier

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

When Zachary RSM called upon Allah subhanaw taala. He didn't even say anything but it was in his heart. But Allah subhanaw taala gave to him.

00:20:09--> 00:20:20

So Zachary also made your applications verbally as well. And that he let her in the folder. Don't leave me alone. I want a family to succeed need to come after me.

00:20:22--> 00:20:30

Well antihero very thin and you are the one who best in gives inheritance to people. succeed people often.

00:20:31--> 00:20:40

First Japan Allah, the same answer Subhana Allah Allah subhanaw taala mentions and this first tells us it was immediate.

00:20:41--> 00:20:44

It wasn't a long time that they had to wait for the dryer to be answered.

00:20:46--> 00:21:00

This means it was straight away. But it also panatela answered the door of Zachary ra Salim will have an earl who Yeah. And that we gave him the idea. He said I'm not just a son,

00:21:02--> 00:21:05

but a son who was a prophet of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:21:07--> 00:21:23

So Zachary Ali Salam was asking for just a son, Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was asking for successes children, Allah subhanaw taala gave him two sons, but two sons who are from the greatest of prophets as well as to Panama.

00:21:24--> 00:21:44

So when you ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah know, will full certainty with full knowledge that when Allah azza wa jal answers your supplication whether it happens now, and you are waiting, or it doesn't happen, now know that Allah subhanaw taala has answered it. Why because he has, because he is L mu g.

00:21:45--> 00:21:50

l mu g is the one who answers, not the one who hears and ignores

00:21:51--> 00:21:57

or the one who hears and forgets, but the one who hears and answers

00:21:58--> 00:22:01

because you're doing is what you want.

00:22:02--> 00:22:05

But maybe our last panel will give you something else.

00:22:06--> 00:22:38

And that was the choice of Allah subhanaw taala, not you. And the choice of Allah penalty and it was always best. Or it may be even that that you asked for is delayed. Because the loss of penalty, Allah knows that in the future, on the day of judgment on gender, that is when it will benefit you the most. This is why the believer never disappears when they raise their hands that are raised goes up in shallow to either as long as they're not involved in harm, which may be a prevention for the answering of this application.

00:22:40--> 00:22:43

But that will reach a loss of penalty and it will be answered

00:22:45--> 00:22:46

that person

00:22:56--> 00:22:58

I heard a beautiful line just a few days ago.

00:23:02--> 00:23:03

He was taking some medicine.

00:23:05--> 00:23:13

And he said it would reduce the risk of return of a particular disease. And it will only be a 20% or 25% chance of it returning.

00:23:15--> 00:23:19

And the brother said with euro, it will lower it to zero,

00:23:20--> 00:23:21

no chance of return.

00:23:24--> 00:23:25

This is the power of

00:23:27--> 00:23:29

this the power of supplication to Allah subhanaw taala

00:23:30--> 00:23:32

and it will change your life.

00:23:33--> 00:23:37

It will enable you to have a live and real relationship with your load.

00:23:39--> 00:23:45

But because maybe we have a weak heart We have doubt about really what it means to call upon Allah Mooji

00:23:47--> 00:23:53

The one who answers algebra, we have a lack of certainty or doubts. This is from Chopin

00:23:55--> 00:23:58

as from our lack of knowledge or ignorance,

00:24:00--> 00:24:15

you should know you're calling upon the one who never sleeps. You're calling upon the one who will forever answer your supplication. You're calling upon the one who loves you. And he wants to give you and give you more than you can ever imagine.

00:24:17--> 00:24:22

And once you have that certainty and you have that knowledge in your heart, then you will forever

00:24:23--> 00:24:30
