Heart Talks


We started second part of Chapter One last Friday, alhamdulillah.

 فقه عظمة الرب

“Fiqh of Greatness of The Rabb (God)”

The greatness of some of His Names and Attributes was discussed. Here’s where His Name and Attribute ‘Al-Ghani’ is talked about.

وهو سبحانه الغني الذي يرزق الخلائق، ويهب الأولاد، ويقسم الأرزاق، ويرسل الرياح، وينزل المياه، ويجيب المضطر، ويكشف السوء، ويطعم الخلق، ويدبر الأمر.

يفعل ذلك كله متى شاء.. وفي أي وقت شاء.. وبأي قدر شاء.

[Rough translation:] And He, the Glorious, is Al-Ghani (free from all needs), Who gives sustenance to the creations and grants progeny and distributes sustenance and sends forth winds and sends down waters and responds to the desperate one and removes evil and feeds the creation and arranges each matter.

He does this all whenever He wants.. And at whatever time He wants.. And in whatever measure He wants.

So basically He keeps on giving…

Heart Talks


While reading the preface I thought to myself , this book can’t get any better. But surprisingly, it did. :)

Yes, we have started the first chapter. Alhamdulillah.

It’s called,

فقه أسماء الله وصفاته

“Fiqh of the names and attributes of Allah”

And we’re on its first part,

فقه العلم بالله وأسمائه وصفاته

“Fiqh of knowledge (‘ilm) of Allah and His names and His attributes”

Guess what? This ‘ilm is compulsory to gain.

Allah Himself says in the Quran,

فَٱعْلَمْ أَنَّهُۥ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا ٱللَّهُ وَٱسْتَغْفِرْ لِذَنۢبِكَ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَٱلْمُؤْمِنَـٰتِ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ مُتَقَلَّبَكُمْ وَمَثْوَىٰكُمْ

“So know, [O Muhammad], that there is no deity except Allah and ask forgiveness for your sin and for the believing men and believing women. And Allah knows of your movement and your resting place.” [Muhammad 19]

ٱعْلَمُوٓا۟ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ شَدِيدُ ٱلْعِقَابِ وَأَنَّ ٱللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

“Know that Allah is severe in penalty and that…

The preface ends with the best dua ever, made by Shaykh. It feels as if it comes directly from the heart. As if his heart is talking. Thus the title ‘Heart Talks’. :p


It feels as if this dua takes into consideration those things that we know but never express, even to our own selves.
Read the beautiful dua below and say ameen.

ونستغفره عزَّ وجلَّ من كل ما زلت به القدم، أو طغى به القلم.. ونستغفره من أقوالنا التي لا توافقها أعمالنا.. ونستغفره من كل علم وعمل قصدنا به وجهه ثم خالطه غيره.. ونستغفره من كل وعد وعدناه من أنفسنا ثم قصرنا في الوفاء به.

ونستغفره سبحانه من كل نعمة أنعم بها علينا فاستعملناها في معصيته.. ونستغفره من كل خطرة دعتنا إلى تصنع وتكلف أمام الناس.

[Rough translation:] And we ask forgiveness from ‘Azza wa Jall (Allah) for everything with which the step slipped, or with which…
