Sheikh Omar Farooq

1st Part Begins

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ
• Mentioned 22 times in the Quran.
What does it mean?
• All praise and thanks be to Allah
Why do we say Alhamdulillah?
• When someone gives us a favor, when we are happy with somebody, we say what I can do for you.
• Allah is our creator and provider, what we can do for Him.

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ
• Allah increases His favors when we are thankful to Him. Allah says: If you are grateful to me I will give you more but if you are ungrateful to me, then remember my Punishment, (Ibrahim: 7)
• Instead of reminding kids of our gift or favor, we should remind them of Allah‘s blessing and His favor.
• When Allah favors upon His servant and he says: Alhamdulillah, then Allah says: what he gave is batter then what he got (Ibn Majah Anas)

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ
• Those who make the habit of saying “Alhamdulillah” in this life they will be able to say Alhamdulillah in Jannah as well (Yunus 10)
• Alhamdulillah fills the Meezan. (Muslim, Abu Malik Ashary)
• Shukr protects me from loosing Allah’s favor
• We are supposed to say Alhamdulillah even when we are afflicted with a calamity (Story of Imam Abu Hanifa)

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ
• A person will get “Baytul Hamd” if he/she make the habit of saying “Alhamdulillah” at the time of difficulties and problems.
• What my servant said: when his little baby have died, (Tirmizi)

When do we say Alhamdulillah?
• When we wake up
• When we eat (fruits on the table)
• When we get a new dress
• After we sneeze
• After a safe journey
• When we hear good news
• When we pray on time.
• When we pray in the Masjid.
• When any harm is removed from us.
• When we gain Knowledge (saying of Imam Abu Hanifa)
• We say Alhamdulillah after we see some body who is afflicted with a calamity, thank you Allah that you have protected me from this.
• When we drink water we say: “Alhamdulillah”
• When we pass water we say: “Alhamdulillah”

Beautiful Hadith
Ya rabbi lakal Hamdu ( Ibn Majah)
Hamden Katheerun Tayyibam Mubarakan Feeh

One of the sahabi said from behind, who said it?
I saw more than 30 angles came down from heaven and arguing for carrying this to the heavens. (Bukhari)

رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ
Rabb has three meanings:
- Lord and Master
- Sustainer, Provider and Guardian
- Sovereign, Ruler (He who controls and directs)
- What we make, Never Expends
- What Allah makes, expends and grows:
This is the beauty of our RABB
- Parents are called “Murabbi”
HE (SWT) Creates, Retains, and Sustains to its perfection

الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
- These words are derived from the same root, Ra Hi Ma, which mean The Merciful, The Compassionate or The most Kind.
- Rahm: Womb of the Mother
- He (SWT) loves 70 times more then the love of a mother.
- Love of Rahman: Ar Rahman, Allamal Quran

Differences between Ar’ Rahman & Ar’ Raheem:
• Ar Rahman: indicates the intensity of the quality
• Ar Raheem: indicates intensity as well as permanence

• Ar Rahman: His Rahmah will manifest in this world to the Believers and non believers as well.
• Ar Raheem: His Rahmah will manifest in the hereafter to the Believers only

مَالِكِ يَوْمِ الدِّينِ
• There are two Qira’at in the Aayah from the Prophet (Tirmizi)
• Maalik: Master / Owner
• Malik: King
• Judgment / Way of Life / Obedience
• And verily the Judgment shall take place. (Azzariyaat 51: 6)
• yaqbi zullah hul Arza yaomal Qiyamati wa yatwis samaa biyaminihi, summa yaqoolu, anal malik (Muslim, Abu Hurairah)
• Allah will squeeze the earth into one of His Hands and fold the heavens around the other Hand, and proclaim: I am the King, where are the kings of the earth?
• Reminder: Although He is Merciful and Kind, He has to be Just as well.

Do you know who the bankrupt is?
- The real bankrupt of my Umah, are those people with lots of prayers, fasts, Haj and they have also back bitted, lied … etc. Allah will take their good deeds and put them into there accounts (people whom they have back bitted about) and their bad deeds and put them into your account.

2nd part begins

إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ
- You alone we worship and will continue worship.
- It signifies deep feelings of love, humility and fear.
Ibadah has three meanings:
- Worship (Ibadah)
- Obedience and Submission (ita’ah)
- Service ( Ghulaam and Ghulaam has no Choice)

وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ
- You alone, we ask for help and will continue to ask for help
- These are the two areas where people make partners with Allah (SWT)
- That is why the entire religion revolves around these two principles.
- The first negates any association with Allah and
- The second signifies the trust and dependence on Allah alone.
Scholars have said: Muslims should not follow the trend of the society; Muslims should give trend to society.

3rd part begins

اهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ
- Guide us to the straight / Right path and keep us steadfast / strong
There are three meaning of Hidayah or Ihdina:
• Guide us to the straight/Right path
• Show us to the straight/Right path
• Drop us to the straight/Right path

What is the straight / Right Path
• Quran: Ali (Radi Allahu anhu)
• Islam: Ibn Abbas (Radi Allahu anhu)
• Truth: Mujahid

- I am leaving behind two things, you will not be misguided, if you hold on to them.( Last sermon of the Prophet)
- The book of Allah
- My Sunnah

Only Allah (SWT) has the right to guide us for our life:
• Siraat al Mustaqeem connects us with our creator
• Siraat al Mustaqeem shows us the way to Jannah
Are we on the right path?
Two things that prevent a person from the right path
• Wimps and desires:
• What people will think of me?

- Dua is the most magnificent in the sight of Allah (Tirmizi)
Ya Allah:
- We don’t know our way to salvation and happiness, please guide us.
- This is our Dua at the beginning of the Quran.
- At least 17 times a day we ask this Dua, that requires a genuine effort.

صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ
Who have been blessed:
Whoever obeyed Allah and His messenger will be in the company of those, whom Allah have blessed:
• The Prophets (spend their life, time, sweat and blood)
• The Truthful (always follow the truth)
• The Martyrs (gave their life for their Deen)
• The Righteous (always follow the right path)
What a good company they are. (Nisa 4: 69)
What is so special about these blessed people?
• The obedience that we demonstrate is not our own achievement, but it is Allah’s tawfiq that he has granted to us. (Ibn Jareer)

غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلاَ الضَّالِّينَ
Not of those who have earned your anger and nor of those who have gone astray. (The Jews, the Christians, the ignorant, the arrogant, the hypocrite, etc.)
• Three people started their way to Jannah.
• One who has earned Allah’s Anger (Al- Maghzoobi Alaihim)
• One who has gone Astray (Az-Zalleen)
• One who has been blessed (An Amta Alaihim)

Hadith Qudsi:
• Salah is divided between me and my servant.

Commitment of the week:
• Start everything with
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ
• Finish everything with
الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ
