Episode Notes

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi attempts to extract the right meanings of the names of Allah – Ar-Rahman, Ar-Raheem, Khayrar-Rahimeen, Arhamur-Rahimeen and Dhur-Rahma.

Ar-Rahman and Ar Raheem are those name of Allah that resonate with a profound status,both linked, and are the only two names that are the first verses in the Surahs in the Qur’an.

The Prophet ﷺ says, ‘The most beloved names to Allah are Abdullah and Abd-ArRahman.’  

Ar-Rahman is mentioned 57 times in the Qur’an. When Allah mentions the largest creation, His Throne (Arsh), He uses Ar-Rahman 7 times. How do Ar Rahman and Ar Raheem differ from one another? Shaykh Yasir Qadhi answers.

The Prophet ﷺ said, “When Allah created the creation, He divided his mercy into 100 parts.  1 has been revealed to this world and because of it people are merciful to each other. He has saved 99 parts of His Mercy and it will be used on the Day of Judgment.”

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was so happy he was.

00:00:27--> 00:01:18

So we were discussing the name of Allah subhana wa tada Ar Rahman and his name are Rahim and his name are Hamra Haman and Hira Haman and the right man and by deriving five different names from the same route, Allah subhana wa tada is emphasizing the concept of Rama and there is no question that the primary attribute of the entire Quran when it comes to Allah subhana wa tada is the attribute of Rama. There is no other noun or verb from which five names have been derived. And if you look at the quantity of times that Allah ascribes mercy to himself in the Quran, there is no other attribute that comes close over 500 different adjectives and verbs and nouns, all of which derive around Rama

00:01:18--> 00:02:09

are ascribed to Allah subhanahu wa tada and Allah azza wa jal tells us in the Quran, cut about a book omada enough see Rama, your Lord has decreed for himself that he shall be merciful. Qatar Babu kumada nuptse Rama and this ayah it illustrates for us a very interesting point. Even a law has laws. Even Allah subhana wa tada obeys laws, but no one has the right to legislate upon a law except a law. A law has the right to legislate on himself, and no other entity has the right to legislate upon a law and if a law had wanted to, he could have legislated anything upon himself, even Allah has rules that he abides by.

00:02:10--> 00:03:00

But what are these rules? Allah azza wa jal has told us a few of them, of them and the most important one in naramata librato be our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that your Lord decreed this hadith ism Sahih Bukhari Muslim and it affirms what the Quran is saying, your Lord decreed upon himself before creating the heavens and earth by 50,000 years. And it's 50,000 means it beyond our comprehension. before Allah created anything, he decreed upon himself, a rule that he wrote in a book that is with him, literally the Hadith says Kitab and in the nuptse, he has a book that is with Allah, so even Allah subhana wa tada has a code book has a law, every entity has laws,

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

even Allah, but the difference is a lot legislative on himself. And Allah has rules that he has promised His servants he will always abide by. And what is the number one rule that we learn in the Quran and the Sunnah in rahmati, totally boo katabi my Rama shall always overcome my anger, my mercy shall always triumph shall always win over my anger. And that's why Allah says in the Quran, Khattab Arab bukem, Allah nfca Rama, your Lord has decreed that he shall always have mercy. And therefore it's not surprising that the most common attribute in the entire Quran is the attribute of Rama and the most number of names of Allah that deal with one verb and one noun is that dealing with the verb

00:03:49--> 00:04:33

and the noun of Rama. And in fact, Allah subhana wa Tada, as I said, mentions five of his names. And we'll go over these and because it's so important, we're going to have to spend two days on all of these names, because indeed, Rama avala is the primary attribute of a lot. The name of Rahman, the name of Rama is a unique name. There is no other name like it in the Quran, other than the name Allah itself, and the name of Allah, and then a man have a unique status that no other name shares, and that is that both of these names are considered to be the primary Name of Allah, typically the name of Allah and the name of Rahman, they occur by themselves. They don't have a second name

00:04:33--> 00:04:59

attached to them. Rarely they do, but typically it's by themselves. And the name of Rahman is linked directly with the name of Allah political law her a widow Rahman, Allah says, Call upon a law or call upon a man, whichever of these two that you choose to do, whichever of these two that you choose. Find out who is smart or who's not. All of the other names belong to Him.

00:05:00--> 00:05:49

So Allah and AR Rahman, Allah says, All the other names go back to them. And there's no other name that has been raised to that status other than these to Allah and all right, man. And this is in fact proven by the editors of a Muslim married Abu hurayrah that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said that a half bull smile Illallah Abdullah, he was the right man, the most beloved of all names to Allah, or Abdullah and Abdul Rahman. So the servant of Allah, the worship of Allah and the worship of a man and Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions his name or Raman in 57 occasions of the Quran 57 occasions, around 50 of them are standalone, they have no other name. And as I said,

00:05:49--> 00:06:37

there's no other name that is standalone other than name Allah. So for example, AR Rahman Al Rahim Al Quran halaqaat insan. This is a standalone name, alright man, and a lot begins yet with Allah and he begins is with a man and there's no other name. That is that a chapter or a surah begins with and typically in verses of majesty, in verses of glory, Allah azza wa jal mentions the name of a man for example, when Allah mentions his most magnificent creation, the biggest creation of Allah, the most magnificent creation, and that is, by the way, the throne of Allah. The largest creation of a law is a laws throne, a laws out whenever Allah mentions his owlish. He always mentions the name of Rahman,

00:06:37--> 00:06:39

AR Rahman.

00:06:40--> 00:07:27

Ar Rahman, and analysis there were seven different times in the Quran, this phrase occurs seven exact same phrase, never does Allah say Allah and Allah says stowa, he always says R Rahman, r Sr. and he mentions the wisdom behind this. He says, when the arch or the throne of Allah is the largest creation, and we know this from many others, by the way, that the Prophet says, I mentioned that it is the heaviest of the creation, and it is the largest of the creation. So when the output is the largest of the creation, if not, Kdm says, a law wanted to mention that attribute that even envelopes the largest creation and that is the attribute of Rama that allows envelopes even the

00:07:27--> 00:08:09

largest creation out of Manu, Alisha stowa. And there is no name of a law that occurs upon the same structure. Now this goes a little bit advanced. I don't want to confuse you with morphology or sort of, but the Arabic language one of the beauties of the Arabic language is you can take a three letter verb, and you can transform it into many different if you like, nouns, and even adjectives and adverbs, depending on what you add what you subtract, where you put an ally for you put so for example, Sammy are to hear some ear and Samir they both mean the same, but there's a difference in the meaning semir the ones who hears everything sound, they're the one who can hear right now, a lot

00:08:09--> 00:08:54

is not sound that Allah is semir This is morphology, the differences. What I'm trying to say are ramen. It has an Elif noon at the end. rahima is the verb. Man has the Elif noon, there is no other name of a law that has this structure of the Elif noon at the end other than this name Alright, man, as for a semir so Albacete is the same structure. And r Rahim is the stream structure and so many names have followed the same structure and that is adding a Yeah, and the third letter semi are semir right basura bossier. Okay, rahima Rahim that's very common, but the NF noon that you add at the end of the verb rahima Rahman, there is no other name in which a three letter verb has been

00:08:54--> 00:09:43

taken and then add if no one added other than rock man. Why? Because the Elif noon when you add it to a verb, it indicates the strength of a verb that is unparalleled in any other noun form. In other words, the strongest noun that is available in the Arabic language to characterize the verb Hope you guys are following me a little bit of grammar here. The strongest noun to characterize a verb occurs when you have the Elif noon, so our ramen, the one who has the strongest and the eternal Rama, no other name of Allah has the afternoon and that is why a Ramadan is so powerful that Allah is always characterized by Rama and everything he does is characterized by Rama and that is why Allah azza wa

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

jal mentions magnificent things when he mentioned all right, man. So for example, our Rahman who Allah Khurana Hala, Collinson, because Allah is our man, he created all of mankind. And that is why the term Rama and many of our scholars say that the difference between right man and right

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

aim is for the entire creation. And Rahim is for the believers. This is the primary difference. We'll come to other differences as well. But the primary difference that our scholars mentioned is that a Rahman is for the entire creation. Man Adam Carolla Collinson, the entire creation He created us for a Rahim. Then generally speaking, a Rahim applies for those who have believed in him. What can you build me Nina rahima. Allah is Rahim for the believers to hear to him yo yo Kona who Salam that that he will greet them, the day that he greets them would send them an alum mentions the term Rahim over here in this context. So r Rahim is a special mercy that is given to the chosen and

00:10:48--> 00:11:31

that's the believers of Ramadan is the powerful mercy that everybody shares in because Allah is characterized by Mercy, even the Kaffir benefits from the Wrath of Allah through a right man, and that's what our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if Allah did not have mercy, that he wouldn't even give the calf or a morsel of water, but it is from the mercy of Allah that even the calf is supplied his daily it is in his daily sustenance. And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that when Allah created the creation, he divided his mercy into 100 parts. Now this is a symbolic headache because Allah's mercy is infinite, and it cannot be divided. Allah's mercy is

00:11:31--> 00:12:26

infinite. But it just to give you an understanding, he divided his mercy into 100 parts, one of those parts he revealed to this world. And because of it, the entire creation has some bit of mercy. Because of it, people are merciful to others because of it. The process of them said the mother horse, for example, shows mercy to the foul to the baby horse. Because of it, the mother bird feeds the baby bird. And Allah has saved 99 parts of his mercy. And those 99 will be used only on the Day of Judgment. So imagine, from the beginning of time until the trumpet is blown, every act of mercy that any creature any bird, any animal, any human does to any other creature, any plant, you add all

00:12:26--> 00:13:03

of that mercy for all of the billions of years that creatures have been on this earth, and that comes to one bit of mercy and 99 times that Allah will use on one day, and that is the day of judgment, and that is why our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, lo allemaal calf ear, if the calf knew how much mercy Allah azza wa jal has, even the calf will be optimistic about entering gender. This is the power of Allah's mercy. And so brothers and sisters, we're gonna pause over here continue to come up tomorrow the concept of writing, but one thing I want to leave you with,

00:13:04--> 00:13:44

when Allah has characterized himself with mercy and over 500 verses, when Allah has described himself in mercy with five different proper nouns, when Allah says he is not a man, he is not a him He is the outer hammer Rahim in the Most Merciful of all those who have mercy. He is the hero he mean the best of all those who have mercy. He is the one who is the Lord Rama, the one who is always merciful, then how can we ever give up hope of Allah's mercy? How can we possibly give up hope of Allah's mercy? In fact, to give up hope of a loss Mercy is an insult to Allah.

00:13:45--> 00:13:59

To give up hope of Allah's mercy, is an insult to Allah of the highest magnitude. And this is not me speaking. This is the Hadith. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Listen to this hadith barakaatuh

00:14:01--> 00:14:16

the biggest of all cabanillas sins are Kabira and Sahara big and small. You have the big sins, the large sins, the major sins, you have the most major of the major sins of Kabbalah Kabbalah, what are they? Number one, Alicia rock Shrek Bella.

00:14:17--> 00:14:38

Number two, no tuna Rahmatullah? That's the second on the list to give up hope of Allah's mercy. Why is this insulting? Because when you feel even in this world, even in this dunya suppose somebody is very generous and very, very

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

giving and whatnot, and you ask from him a pitiful amount, you come to him, you're in need, and you say, Can you give me a quarter? Can you give me a dime? And you assume Oh, he's not going to give me a dime? Isn't it insulting to the generous King isn't insulting to the rich person who's known for his generosity, that he's going to refuse you a dime, you shouldn't even think like this. So what Illa hidden

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

Hello Allah to Allah belongs the perfect example. Any person who assumes that he single handedly is too sinful for Allah to forgive, will law he wouldn't insult Who are you? Who are you and what are all of your sins compared to the mercy of Allah? Have you limited the mercy of Allah such that you believe you alone in one lifetime can commit so many sins that Allah cannot forgive you? This is the height of insult and that is why it is a type of gopher to assume that Allah cannot forgive me. That's why I process that I'm said right after shidduch number two to give up hope of Allah's mercy. And the Quran says woman Jaco not to be in love balloon who gives up hope of Allah's mercy other

00:15:45--> 00:16:34

than those who are born completely astray. And Allah mentions that the Koran kuliah eva da Latina Ashraf, who Allah and fusi comme la taco no to me Rahmatullah in the LA yo foods robot Jamia Oh my servants who have wronged themselves over and over again you've gone beyond the bounds of Allah is saying directly in the first person he's speaking to them. La taco not to Mira Mattila never give up hope of Allah. Allah forgives all sins, brothers and sisters that our man the Rahim, the Alhambra, amen, can continue to show Rama and he can do have more Rama than all of the creation combined, and it will not diminish his Rama, if he shows is that the entire creation is eternal right? That Rama

00:16:34--> 00:17:13

never finishes. So what can I do and what can you do that can extinguish that Rama have a law, this is the hope this is the month of Rama, this is the shadow Rama and this is the month where we want Allah Rama and these are the 10 days of Rama. So let us renew our intention that we will gain Allah let us have that optimism because that optimism is a part of a man let us believe in a Rahman and Rahim let us believe that the man will show us Rama the Torah he will develop will get envelope us in that and inshallah Allah will continue tomorrow talking about the other names of Allah pertaining to Rama was Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
