Even the way a lug you give us the gift of his name is to tell us you are dealing with someone like there’s no one else. he’s like nobody else he will help you like nobody else, he loves you like nobody else, he cares for you like nobody else, he remembers you like nobody else, he’s always with you like nobody else, everyone else will leave you everything, else will leave you Allah will never, leave you.
that’s what he reminds you and me of, that’s what he reminds you and me of when you say bi-smi llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ actually asking allah is help, but human beings need different kinds of help.
When you’re sick you need someone to cure you, when you’re tired you need someone to help you, you know when you’re confused you need someone to clarify for you. When you don’t know you need someone to educate you. when you’re lost you need someone to guide you it’s not one kind of help, if you’re hungry you don’t need to be educated right now you need to be fed. it’s a different kind of help so.
When you ask Allah for help, then at a different occasion you need a different kind of help & of course every one of Allah’s names provides a different kind of help. when Allah calls himself al-hadi, the one who guides then of course the help he will give us that he’ll guide us. when he calls himself the provider Ar Razak. can arise up the one who provides over and over again. then obviously he’s in that name he’s going to be giving me provision.
When he calls himself the quaa til Mateen( الْمَتِينُ ) the one who has extended my extended power than I need strength I’m weak and I’m going to call on a Las power to grant me some of that power myself so I can accomplish what I need to do. so every one of Allah’s names gives us a different kind of help. but when I wake up in the morning and I’m just getting out of bed and out of my mouth comes bi-smi llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ just like that just like that I just say I don’t think about which name do I need right now. do I need a lot of give me the strength to get up do I need a lot of guide me this morning do I need a lot says you know to help me plan my day do I need a lot to provide me Hallal Rijkh. do I need a lot to provide me peace in my family and security which name of Allah should I call on and this is the gift of Allah that by using just the word isn’t, it is all of the names of Allah all of the unique qualities of Allah all of the beautiful things about Allah, that you include it just inside the word ISM whether you thought of all of those they or not this is the mercy of Allah.
I could not have thought of all of the things that I need from him, because I don’t need one thing I need too many things. I’ve been too much need, and so I can’t even think of all of those names. but if he gave us an incomplete statement on purpose because what you do next completes it. in the name of Allah I eat, in the name of Allah I get out of that in the name of Allah I wash my face in the name of Allah I get in my car everything you do is actually completing bi-smi llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ it is as though this beautiful gift of Allah was waiting to complete everything you do it’s the other way too.
now and now you know what you understand there’s la semaine mizune if you do anything without bi-smi llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ it’s incomplete. this was a part of it, when we say bi-smi llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ were acknowledging something about Allah, that every one of his qualities everything that he does is something, that’s unique to him it cannot be confused with anyone else the way Allah shows mercy the way Allah guides the way Allah provides the way Allah plans the way Allah does anything that he does is unique to him it cannot be compared that is his unique mark, that’s the first thing but the second, thing also is that everything Allah does, whether you understand it and I understand it or not has beauty in it, everything Allah does has beauty in it and that’s just inside when we just use, invoke the name listen but now let’s take this a step further when we say in the name of Allah instead of just saying you’re just mentioning Allah just calling on Allah but actually invoking the name of Allah and actually by invoking the name the uniqueness of Allah and the beauty of all of the qualities of Allah were actually what like Imam Ali Lucia he Mahalo commented Allah……………. that you’re asking Allah help the old Arabs before Islam they used to have ten degrees of love, the lowest of them was Pope the , lowest of the degrees of love was probably they would have ten degrees and the tenth one will kill you you love someone so much you become so obsessed that you can’t even eat you can’t even sleep you you know you just kills you it’s unhealthy the ninth one the ninth one actually cut is called whele or ana from which the word Allah and the word wealth means a kind of love that when you have it you don’t feel pain when you don’t when you have it you don’t feel hunger you don’t feel sadness it is taken it this love fills your appetite so much there’s no room left for anything
