Hola Mundo Rahim In the name of Allah The Compassionate the Most Merciful assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. May the peace and blessings and the mercy of Allah be upon all of you. Thank you for joining us back again here doing our Anak reflections. And in this particular one we are about to conclude our reflections upon ayatul kursi. If you remember last week or so, we spoke about the verse that came before it, you could see and now we are speaking about the verse that is coming after it of course, what comes after it
is where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, that a cry should be, there shall be no compulsion in religion, people's relationship with a law, they cannot be forced into it. Any religion that is based on force, it has to be a sound religion. Why is this? After all this description that was given about Allah subhanho wa Taala is your relationship with Him is not based on your own free will your own free genuine desire to have that relationship with Allah, then that is not meaningful. Allah subhanaw taala does not compel people to believe otherwise, that would indicate a need. If we were compelled by Allah to believe, then that suggests a need on the part of Allah subhanaw taala.
But rather, Allah clearly says that I am in no need of your worship. In fact, Allah is great as he is, our worship of him, will not increase him in greatness, if we decide not to worship Him, that will not diminish his greatness. So he is great as he is, and there is nothing that we can do or say to make him greater or to make him less great than what he does. And that is why one of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala is what we discussed a summit and now we have one that is uncanny, meaning that he is self sufficient, he does not need us. We are in dire need of him. He is not dependent upon us and we are in complete dependence on him. His existence and well being is not contingent
upon us, but rather ours is contingent upon him. So Allah says that he is so free, that this day is about invitation. Some are going to accept the invitation. Those who do not accept the invitation, they will not be compelled to do so. They will not be compelled to do so. They're a craft. That our relationship with a law cannot be based on compulsion. People cannot be coerced, they cannot be forced, they cannot be compelled into having a relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. That may be slavery in slavery is you have the slave serving the master, but the master having a whip because he needs the service of the slave. Apparently, it looks like the slave is doing the will of his
