Spoiler alert, no not him. Humble hello hello Bill alameen Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah wala le he also be as main. My brothers and sisters in Islam in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the loop that let her look

00:00:18--> 00:00:45

Meaning, if you are honest and true with the last version allows origin will be true with you. So we learn from the Hadith, the way that we deal with a lot of social is the way he will deal with us. And these words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have a story to them. And the story is that one time there was an Arab, an Arabian men, a Bedouin.

00:00:46--> 00:00:50

He came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he embraced Islam.

00:00:51--> 00:01:20

And he got busy with his own life on the vessel Allahu alayhi wa sallam went out for a battle for a wall. After this battle, Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was victorious. And he took a runner in the beauty of war, what remains of the disbelievers position after the run away from the battlefield for Nabil sallallahu alayhi wa sallam collect all that. And he returned to El Medina.

00:01:21--> 00:01:31

And you know, since in the recent law, while he was alive is the Prophet and the leader of the Muslims, he gets to distribute this Redeemer the way he wants.

00:01:32--> 00:01:55

So he distributed the arena upon the companions and he dedicated one share to that bid one that accepted Islam and he gave it to the companions and he said to them, Go and give this share to the bedroom that accepted Islam recently. So they went in they gave him a Shea

00:01:57--> 00:02:09

as it came to him, and he saw it, he asked the companions What is this? They said to him, this is what masala masala while he was a lump divided for you from the runner in the booty of war.

00:02:11--> 00:02:28

So he carried this ridhima this share and he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And he said the amount of salt Allah Mather, what is this messenger of Allah? And the result Allahu alayhi wa sallam says, this is your share of anonima.

00:02:29--> 00:02:50

For he said, Man, a hair that the artichoke, this Bedouin, he said, also Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I did not become one of your followers and I did not embrace Islam for this. I don't want anything materialistic and worldly matters. Rather, I accepted Islam, so that an arrow could enter in here.

00:02:51--> 00:03:04

And I die and I enter the paradise. This is his wish. This is his desire. This is what he wants. So here, Nabil sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said team in the spooky lair Hey, look,

00:03:05--> 00:03:29

if you are honest, and you are true, in your words, you're true to Allah and you're honest with Allah. Allah is going to be true with you and he'll give you what you want. So as time goes by, and there was a war, there was a battle. She had FISA Videla and this companion, this Arab man this Bedouin ends up going to the wall

00:03:30--> 00:04:21

and he gets killed, and they carry his body and they come to the soul masala Lahore alayhi wa sallam, when we saw Allahu alayhi wa sallam Cz and he says to the companions, who who is this the man that you know his story before and he said he didn't want the edema and he wants to die if he said, Is that him? They said, Yes, Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said laquan the way in the BS en la Vallejo Salaam saw him was exactly the same way this man desired. Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam Surah spie had entered the throat of this Bedouin man, his companion, all the Allahu anhu. Then in the recent Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, so that Kamala for sadaqa who law that he was

00:04:21--> 00:04:46

honest with Alonzo version, so Allah Zoysia was true with him, and he gave him the diff that he wanted and be if Neela he gives him the paradise that he wished and he desired for what what what? So my brothers and sisters in Islam what we learn is that we need to be honest with Allah social in everything we do and everything we see. Let me give you some practical ways on how to achieve this.

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

You know, for example, honesty with a last option is when you prefer what Allah loves over what you love. For example, when you get up for something

00:05:00--> 00:05:53

visual and pre on time. When you pre select and visual on time, then you are preferring what Allah loves, which is prayer on time over what you love, which is sleeping at the time. So if you get up and you pray, selected fissured, you are being honest with Allah subhanho wa Taala, that you really want the pleasure of Allah. And you really want the paradise that Allah sosial has prepared for the believers. This is how we be honest with Allah. So again, you know, when you fast, when you fast, that's you preferring what Allah loves. Because Allah loves from his servants that the forest, so you prefer what Allah loves, by fasting over what you love, and your body desires food and drink,

00:05:53--> 00:05:58

you want to eat and drink. But you suppress yourself, you hold yourself back and you fast

00:06:00--> 00:06:27

hours on end until selected McRib. Because your love Allah sarjan. And you prefer what Allah loves, over what you love. Now, you're being honest with the last part of what I learned. When you open the ad, and you read, and you're struggling and you're getting tired, but you remain patient, and you struggle, and you battle yourself and you continue reading and

00:06:30--> 00:06:57

in this case, we say that you are being honest with Allah solution, because you are preferring what Allah loves, which is you a servant sitting and reading a law's word over what your body loves. And that is to just close this call and and move it away and play with your food instead, or sleep and rest. lockable. So you prefer what Allah loves. Sit down and read the Quran, and

00:06:58--> 00:07:15

struggled and put all your effort and remain patient. You prefer that over what your body loved. And that is to just give up on this plan altogether. And follow this principle with all the other relationships that we have. You know your wealth, when you

00:07:17--> 00:07:37

give your love to the poor, you feed the poor, you feed the needy, you look after the orphan with your wealth. This is you preferring what Allah loves over what you love. right because Allah Zoysia loves that we look after the poor and the needy, and that we feed them God loves this.

00:07:38--> 00:08:24

And you love to have this money for yourself, and to spend it upon yourself and to feed yourself and to clothe yourself and to find the luxuries for yourself. But you prefer what Allah loves feeding the poor, over what you love, and that is spending the money on yourself. In that case, you're being honest, you're being honest with Allah. So just because you only preferred what Allah loves over what you love, in order to achieve a loss, so shall His pleasure and his paradise and to earn that to earn his parrot pleasure and the paradise on Oahu Island. My brothers and sisters in Islam, these are the 10 days of the show that we have. Be serious, be serious with these days, increase your

00:08:24--> 00:08:28

household debt, increase your good deed, any good deed you know, have do,

00:08:29--> 00:09:16

do struggle and push yourself to the limit. And do this in the intention of you being honest with Allah subhanho wa Taala that you know, the best and most beloved deeds to Allah are the deeds that are done in the 10 days of the nation. So be honest, do you want the reward of Allah? Do you want this huge reward? Do you really want a loss pleasure and a loss love? Here it is. It's found in nice 10 days. The worship in these 10 days are the most beloved to Allah as opposed to all the other days. So be honest with a loss so gentle and worship him the way he deserves to be worshipped whilst combos panatela to forgive our sins and ask Allah azza wa jal to accept our good deeds in the holy
