now who did they ask?
let me ask you if you’re paying attention
the people who ask about Allah – do they ask Allah or do they ask the Prophet ﷺ?
they ask the Prophet ﷺ
they ask the Prophet ﷺ
so what you expect is – now, I’ll say the English
“if they ask you about Me, then tell them I’m near”
but the Ayah does not say “tell them”
Ayah does not say “tell them”
here’s what the Ayah says
[waitha sa’alaka ibaadi anni fa inni qareeb]
“when they ask you about Me”
“then I am near”
“then I am near” – what is missing?
“then tell them”
there’s no [faqullahum] – there’s no [tell them]
the people came to ask the Rasool ﷺ
somebody comes to ask the Alim about Allah – will Allah answer my dua?
I have a lot of mistakes
I missed a lot of salat
will Allah still answer my dua?
Will Allah put me in hellfire? He’s asking the Alim
in this case, he’s asking Rasool Allah ﷺ
and Allah says
He puts the Rasool ﷺ aside – and He answers him directly
He starts talking to you and talking to me
He’s not talking to Rasool Allah ﷺ anymore
He says [fa inni qareeb] – “I am near”
“I’m so near I’ll talk to you”
“I won’t even tell the Messenger ﷺ to talk to you”
“I’ll talk to you myself”
that’s the beauty of Quran
People came and ask Rasool Allah ﷺ
and Allah did not tell him
“you go tell them”
Allah said: “no, no, I’ll tell them myself”
“I am so near”
“you don’t believe me?”
why did I say you don’t believe me?
He said [inni] – [inna] is used in Arabic
لازالة الشك (To remove suspicion)
المخاطب متردد حريب
(the addressee is in doubt)
so if someone is in doubt
then you use [inna]
Allah is saying: “don’t you ever doubt that I am near”
why are you doubting that I’m near?
why do you think I would go away from you?
you turn your back on me, I don’t turn my back on you
you turned your back on me
you disobeyed me
you stopped loving me, I never stopped loving you
you become distant – I stay near
and the word [qareeb] also
[qareeb] is اسم صفة (that describes the quality of a noun)
which means I’m always near
The sentence actually means:
“certainly, I am always near”
“Let My slaves know”
now, the other thing is
how many names does Allah have?
at least 99
at least 99 – so many beautiful names of Allah
and the one – when the Messenger ﷺ is told
“when people ask you about Me”
when they ask the Prophet ﷺ about Allah
then the most important thing you need to tell them is which name of Allah or which description – that he is what?
that He is near
because when He is near, it’s easier for you to talk to Him
when when someone is far, you can’t talk to them
when someone is near, you can talk to them
when someone is near, you can respect them
so if you’re in school
and the teacher walks out of the classroom
the teacher walks out of the classroom – do you behave the same way or no?
no, and don’t lie – you’re in the Masjid okay?
go outside in line – I am kidding -okay?
When the teacher is near – do you behave differently?
you do – don’t you
now you’re taking a test
the teacher walks by
he just walks by
do you cover your exam a little more?
you know – just a shadow made you like – Oh my God!
especially if he puts his hand on your desk
and he looks down at your paper
and he goes
hahaha … Malak ul Maut! (the angel of death)
I do that to my students because I really enjoy torturing them psychologically
it’s one of the great joys of teaching -you get to mess with students
Oh my God
Allah says: if My slaves ask you about Me tell them I am – what?
near – when you know someone is near you act differently
because He’s always near
[fa inni qareeb]
