Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:00:26--> 00:00:31

coming to you from beautiful Singapore and Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:00:32--> 00:01:12

indeed, the believers are brothers and so Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions that part of Eamon is a brotherhood that we have with each other. And what is that? brotherhood and title and what does that entail? Well, Allah subhanho wa Taala has made his brothers and so, being brothers, we have to love others. For others what we love for ourselves, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, la umino, hydrocodone Hata, you have barely a he, he may have been enough. See, none of you truly believes until he lives for his brother where he lives for himself. Most people when they read this Hadith, they think that that is a very high status that a person has to achieve to have that

00:01:12--> 00:01:27

way, and that's something that's very, very praiseworthy. But in fact, as some of the scholars have mentioned, like amongst them, Mr. manolio Rahim Allah and that's the minimum requirement for a Muslim meaning. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said lay you meanwhile hydrocone every Muslim

00:01:29--> 00:02:06

is not fall in faith. In other words, he does not truly believe until he loves for his brother, what he loves for himself. And so just loving for your brother, what you love for yourself is minimum requirement. The praise worthy status is the status in which Allah subhanho wa Taala calls that he thought when he says, Well, you thirunal and fusi him well, okay and IBM kasasa, they prefer others over themselves, even if they are in dire straits, even if they are truly in need of whatever that thing is. They prefer others over themselves. So when it comes to this world, the worldly matters, we as Muslims are ordered to even prefer others over ourselves and to help others and part of

00:02:06--> 00:02:50

brotherhood is to at least love for others what you love for yourself. But when it comes to competing with each other, our competition is not in this dunya our competition and are competing is for the hereafter. Our competition is in doing good deeds, our competition is to see who could give more insight more in charity, who can memorize more of the Quran in terms of competing for the paradise of Allah, competing for the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala competing, that's where we compete in, in in this in this world. Allah subhanho wa Taala says phenolic affiliate and FSL mata nafi soon, and in that those who would like to compete, let them compete. And so that's why in

00:02:50--> 00:02:52

this world, we have to

00:02:53--> 00:03:30

look at those who have less than us so that we can be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when it comes to looking at in terms of the dean, you have to look at others who are better than you. Instead of comparing yourself to others who maybe don't pray or have done this, you don't say to yourself, Well at least I pray look so and so doesn't even pray, don't compare to yourself could not compare yourself to others who are less than you when it comes to doing good deeds. But compare yourself to those who are always in the masjid those who memorize the Quran, those who are always remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala though that's those are the people who we should compare

00:03:30--> 00:04:09

ourselves to. When it comes to the worldly matters. You don't have to compete and compare yourself with other people who have more than you. In other words, you look at the people who have less than you so that you can be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala and so part of our Deen the Messenger of Allah even ordered us to always ask Allah to to help us be thankful. And that's why the prophets of Allah Allah orders not to not to finish our prayers and less we have said a doula and that doula is a law home in LA the clicker will show clicker mercenary by the tick, oh, Allah helped me to remember you and help me to be thankful to you and also helped me to perfect my worship of you. And

00:04:09--> 00:04:33

so it's not all it's not just about thanking Allah for what you have. I sorry, it's not only about asking Allah Subhana for what you don't have, but also being thankful to Allah for what you already have. And that's something that will Sharla put peace in your heart and inshallah Allah will give you happiness in this life in the hereafter. What is going on? Fado sal Allahu ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam
