in handling learning in Moodle who want to study in order sofiero One our image should already unforseen our CD at the marina may end now for long holding them down when we would leave for her do
what should go in now either in Allahu Allahu Allah Shaheed what no Mohammed and how to do what a pseudo Salah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam, a lot of my inner critic overshoe Creek over his neighbor they take a look at you know, he dunya Hassan Orfila filthy Hassanal Pina other than now along Medina million fauna. One fattener Lima I lived in I was in a human or a bill alanine.
So we have deniable, Al Amin, this is the start of the explanation of the book, this is love.
And the book is out. By the way, I'm just want to show this in particular, in case you have a copy with a different cover. So if you have it is just basically an updated cover. It's the same book, but the cover is different.
this book is about 40 Headies, revolving around love.
Basically, the love of Allah has eroded primarily. And then the love of Muhammad Ali Salatu was Salam and then the love of creation.
And every book has a story. Every book has a Genesis beginning that makes it possible.
So I thought in
trying to convey to you what the book is about, let me explain why it came into existence. And then you will understand what the book is about inshallah. So the story of the book
so once a sister comes and she's asking me
I read the Quran
and I find the must judgment there.
I find the Day of Judgment I find Hellfire I find discipline, I find strictness but where is the love of Allah in the Quran? That is she is saying and expressing in words and gestures and craving the love of Allah subhana wa taala. But where do I find it in Islam?
And in an attempt to explain all of that, and in saying that all the things that she pointed out are important in providing a balance in your relationship with the divine with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. And that you can definitely find Allah's love here and here and there.
At the conclusion of all of that, I felt that if that is a question that someone has, probably a lot of people do.
And some people express it in ways that are slightly different meaning that I've always been taught throughout my life, that I need to pray
and being offered the threat of what happens when I don't pray or Allah who will punish you.
Faster, Allah will punish you gives a cow or Allah who will punish you.
And all of these things are right, it's accurate.
But is this the only motivation for us to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala it's definitely a motivation, right? So Hellfire is there to do what? To inspire you to stay away from the one and do what you're supposed to. But is this the only motivation for us to come close to Allah subhanho wa taala. So when someone was asked or asked once, you mean that we actually can worship Allah as though just because of love? And they said, Yes, he was surprised. Because he says, I've never heard that before.
The way that we were taught,
and the way that our parents taught us was that don't do this, because Allah will punish you do this, otherwise Allah will punish you. But is there another way that complements this not replace it but complement it?
And if you take those youngsters who are growing up in non Muslim countries who are being subjected to constant criticism of Islam, and constant criticism of religion altogether, meaning religion is all about hate, right?
But we're not. And particular A exam is about hate and discipline. That is you find Allah azza wa jal being very judgmental, very good to punish. If you don't do Allah will take you to hell. And then they add to this look at how some Muslims interpret Islam in terms of acts of violence. You don't see any love in that way.
So those Muslims
When they see that it does affect them.
So if Islam is all about
hate speech is Islam is all about hurting the other. And this is what I found with my teachers, with my parents, then I don't want Islam anymore, especially that popular culture sings the praises of love.
You've heard, love solves everything. And love is the answer, and love and no hate. So that is very attractive. So they say this is attractive. This is nice. But I don't locate that in Islam. What can I find that in Islam? Is it all about being judged? If I don't, and judge if I do.
So that internally, there seems to be a need for us to discuss and understand love in Islam. And externally, as we said, you have critics of Islam, or non Muslims who will say Islam is not about love.
It's devoid of it.
Or they would they want to emphasize loss in Islam, they will emphasize interpretation of love would then the rubric or the umbrella of Islam that exaggerate love at the expense of Allah's revelation. So there are interpretations of love in Islam, mystical, that seek to unite with the divine.
That is, if you really love Allah, you can love him so much that you can unite with him. And it's a very attractive idea. Because that love is all consuming.
You could love everything, and everyone
and then the law does not hold its sway anymore because once you enter the realm of love, everything becomes
So that interpretation is actually emphasized externally and some Muslims when they hear that they think that is love in Islam, those are the proponents, the experts of love in Islam, whereas it isn't, because it contradicts the Quran. And it goes against the Sunnah of Rasulullah Hilaire salatu salam so love remains undiscovered.
How do I love Allah subhanahu wa Tada? How do I love the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, what is the basis of my relationship with other people, Muslims in particular, but also non Muslims? What is the basis of that relationship?
So there is a need to focus on love in Islam, I to extract it, not from our not from desire, not from what people said and wrote, but basically go back to the Quran and say, Where do you find it? Go back to the Sunnah and say, where can you locate it? And what did the scholars of Islam say about love?
So this book collects 40 Hadith.
From verses Allahu alayhi salatu salam did all of them talk about love. And the primary focus in the beginning of it is the love of Allah subhana wa Tada. Then the love of Muhammad Ali salatu salam, and then we move into other notions and under undersensing of love.
So love between the spouses, the idea of a soulmate the idea of romantic love, the idea of love and hate, can you have love without hate? The idea of love being an absolute good
because you are living in a culture and it's a global culture at this moment, where you are supposed to do what you authentically feel is right for you.
You're with me, this right or wrong, that do whatever you feel like as long as this is your truth, as long as this is what you love. As long as it is love underlying bad, then it's okay.
So we want to understand this is love and absolute. Does it have a moral compass of its own? Or does it need to be guided can love at times be extreme and can love autonomy harmful? So the idea in sha Allah in this series is to have a holistic understanding of what love is, and to locate love in Islam. So our motivation for love is not only of our motivation for a bad
for with Allah azza wa jal is not only and simply based on do or Allah will condemn you and judging. There has to be something else and in fact, there is something else. So when it comes to riba
I've just basically come in covering the introduction of the book.
When it comes to Riba,
the definition of it, right, and this is taken from the words of Abraham Oliver, he's not alone in that definition. He says, What are you good at will tell you I was laying in alignment with the alignment with divine people.
Worship, if someone were to ask you define it. What makes up a guy.
He says it has two principles are to Foundation,
our most love with utmost humility and surrender.
Meaning you can faith love and complete surrender.
So that if you are to worship someone, you must have those two.
And if you have one without the other, that is not called worship.
So if you have someone completely and fully, but you do not surrender and submit to them, that is not fully guided.
Right? You will mean
and if you surrender and submit to someone, but you don't love them, but you're compelled to submit to them, like a tyrant, he tells you to do and you do because you're afraid and only afraid. But you don't like them. And you don't love them. He says this is not called Eva has a Syriana slang, and certainly you love with all of your heart, and surrender with all your heart and body. And that is only
so here, he's telling us a hell of a lot of data.
That you cannot worship Allah Who God
am I right?
That what is being said, you cannot worship Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, without love.
So love is essential, hope and fear, they come to complement, that essential relationship that you have with your Creator is a relationship of love.
And enforce a surrender.
You don't love them like an equal, you don't want to come back a spouse. That's a long time of love you both and as you want the one who is superior to you. But nonetheless, you love him.
And you don't love them both part of your heart.
Yanni there was a statement attributed to Isa, he said
lot of what we
now know some of it.
Because if you don't do some that the rest of it is reserved for something else and someone else. No, he says love a lot with all of your heart.
And that is triggered. And that is to heat. And in fact, if we take it back a step
another statement from you know, pagan Rahimullah. And he says, and Adam Godwin was to three emoji that you might have been through the engineer, one cooling he says I need you to understand that this was said before, not something that we're inventing now, is something that was said before and asserted that this is the truth about his stuff. He says, The celestial realms, and the earthly realms in this old universe was founded based on love and for it.
We're in the helicopter, land your ships, you want to embarrass the movement of the celestial bodies, the sun and the moon, and the moon and the movement of angels and the movement of animals and the movement of every mover is because of
that is the foundation. You see how and we will talk more of a history is as good but when he says would you have met him when he actually
wouldn't love and for him. So ad is something that is non existent at this moment. And Allah says could be and it is Why did Allah so to move it from a point where it does not exist into a point where it exists? Because Allah is though done loves what
Otherwise when he created
when he and he used to seminars or history no so we feel that it wouldn't be right. So when he created movies from non existence into existence, if he did not love it
You know, he would either he loves that he be there, or he loves this consequence.
And that has been waiting for him because it's gonna leave him alone turn to something that Allah Ahsoka loves. Otherwise Allah will not create a lot of empathy and that no one can tell us a lot to do anything. So he creates a heating the sun is there because Allah
loves it. And the moon, Allah loves it to be there. And he commands to eat wants to do A, B and C because he loves what they are going to do when they listen to him. And Allah has a sense the ring, and Allah makes it hot. And Allah makes him call Allah who says no, because of what, because Allah loves it. Otherwise it does not happen. Either loves it directly, as we said or lost the consequence of it. So this entire universe wave moves, every movement of it moves because of love.
And in fact, if you think about it, and we're going to be emphasizing these points within the law as well, just so that we don't forget them, every movement of yours is a movement based on love.
So when you eat Why do you need?
Consequently, why is it because of this, because of this because of that is because
because you love yourself, you want to nourish your body. So you feel, that's why you eat, then it's fine to drink. That's fine work. That's why you have children, even when you run away from something even when you hate something by doing something.
Because it's what harms you.
And why does that matter? Because I felt the opposite, which is my benefit. So you hate either because of
so this is a law of syllogism. And this is his creation, and this is the movement of every living being animals or humans.
And we talked about the event, right? That the data is based on what again Palmquist
You gotta listen right?
Love and life and surrender particle of Allah and surrender.
And has anyone worked when you're sometimes studying either in via felted a bit dry?
don't be sharp, a sand, alright, so it can be very dry.
But there's another way to actually study
and to study it, okay? So when Allah has noticed, says, puts Allah to Muhammad.
She's not the Sharia. This is constantly telling me what Allah has had forbidden for you, that you don't associate honors with him. So we had said, as in the Wonder school in him, he says, You have to keep moving. Don't let anyone decide in that level
of reserve, your utmost love for me. Love your wife. Love your husband, love your children love yourself.
But that extreme love that full love, get it all.
So shift is what?
Ship in love. So this is again, Rahim Allah.
And he says what we should do our environment for Warsaw ship is a tutor times many German money you know, he's a German mind. He says greatly one, the one that ALLAH does not forgive except for the repentance. And he says that he will take a partner with Allah Xeljanz that he loves us He loves us.
She is about love, that He loves us.
And this is making him equal to Allah subhana wa Tada and he says, the shift of the polytheist genuinely is not in terms of the thinking that a creep like Allah and provide like a lot of services. That's not the case. They don't really believe that. But they love their idols or love their intercessors will love them ever. They are worshiping as much as they love allies. So tensely this ship,
in loving them. And of course when you love someone that much your heart becomes a slave to it. A servant of it attached to it.
And that's how why you have to watch out for what you love.
And as you have to be careful with whom you give your love to because it can
either use five your heart overloaded, take it up to the upper heavens or throw it deep down into the mud,
it will shave your heart. So the love of Allah is so good is the best of love. So it's saying ship is about love. And then he also says,
Oh, hang on,
is this know that the most beneficial title or am I had that love that a person can have is that love
of the one who's not is in your fifth month, June
13, or 14th
that is the love of Allah as the origin is intended to be your heart.
And you are forever going to be seeking and searching for that love.
And you will never find it unless you find Allah has the origin and you will ever be trying to fill that vacuum with human love and material love, but none of these things can take the place of Allah subhanaw taala because Allah has so good at hardwired to look for him
right? That you will always get the incomplete.
So, you understand the idea of the soulmate? Right? What is the idea of the soulmate?
The idea that there is one
person that if you find them, they will compete. So for the rest of your life, you have to search for them. And unless you find them, you will always be in conflict, that familiar?
What are we actually talking about?
That is a loss.
Is there still a human being that can completely
because you do so far you can do anything that you can complete someone, you can get the patch, but you can actually be everything for that person
is a theory.
The only one that you need to find we all actually fully complete and fully content is of our own. And he put this inside you as you're always looking for him. So he says the most beneficial love
that a person can handle is the love of Allah has zoomed in. And it's a tragedy that we have been taught to love everything, but not been taught to love Allah. So general blissing out of the most beneficial love of all, the love that you have it, everything else will make sense. And then you wouldn't actually again be a loving person. But when you don't have it, you're always be jumping from one block to the other and being constantly disappointed. So he said
that his entire creation has this love in your heart. And he said, The heavens and the earth are there because of it.
This is what I want you to try out to observe how powerful this notion is. And this is similar to sell one or two. All of them all the creation as you see is there because of one thing and that is the Oh Allah so
they all succeed because of this love and they continue because of his love. And they are there to serve you because of this bundle.
So when you look at them, feel Allah's love behind all of that. And he said, Well, he had a civil Jihad that he learned that he will lie he says this is the secret of saying that he doesn't need Allah.
You enter number word, you end up either. Allah DITA
Tao Tell the meaning who is the either
so when you're going into with salute to Allah as okay with regard to Allah azza wa jal when you make the
way you're staying away from the Haram
Yes, on the one hand, you're afraid of Allah's punishment. And yes, you don't want the harm that these things will bring to you. But when you think about it, that I'm doing this because it brings me closer to Allah and it will give me his love and I will feel His love. You will be motivated in a different way to complete and perfect that
is not a drag is not only a threat now, but it's something that you want to do. Right?
There is an education, they talk about an internal motivation and an external motivation.
What is the source of motivation in education? That is do this and here's a sticker.
Do this and here's a piece of candy. So you'll solve it, solve your homework and
Any last few questions because you don't want what? A sticker and a piece of candy.
And what happens when we start providing that
the effort starts, right? The effort stops, because you're not receiving that external motivation. The internal motivation, on the other hand is you want to do this because you want to do this. Because you love math, because you love science because you love history. So as an educator, you want to move your students from an external motivator into an internal motivator. Now you don't need the stickers and the candy. Now you love the subject itself. Now you want to move yourself and you want to move your children from Wake Up for federal law, we're bringing in hellfire into pray Fajr, because you need it and because you need the love of Allah. So that you'd have to at one point, stop
telling them wake up for failure, and they stop working for federal themselves.
And you want to do that with yourself. Stay away from the Haram not only because Allah is watching me, and Allah will burn me and that is an incredible motivator. So you never want to let go of that. But also because if I do this, do I want to distance myself from Allah azza wa jal, and he's everything I have.
I don't want to lose him. Not only he's gonna punish me, and he sees me. It's not just like a camera that is watching you. Yeah,
it's affected. But do I want to lose his love?
And do you know when Muhammad Ali is Salatu was Salam.
And famously, Allah told him the other kilometer, put them in then big government, aha, all of your sins are forgiven past and future. And he is standing in Sudan for such long periods, until his feet at a salon was suddenly swell, and they break and I had a shot of the Allah Who looks with compassion and mercy asked him and he said, Why are you tormenting yourself like this? Didn't Allah azza wa jal to tell you that I've forgiven all of your sins? You know the answer but before they get to the answer, you understand what I shall the Allah who I know is telling him that is your azul Allah you are doing so much you're not afraid of sin anymore.
You're not afraid of hellfire anymore. So why doing so much? And what is his answer?
Kunal I've done shakoora Shall I might be thankful servant of Allah.
That is I'm not doing this because someone is chasing me. And I'm afraid of hellfire Hallows, I'm secure. I'm done with that. But now I have a different connection with Allah azza wa jal, the Almighty Allah do the all loving that I'm doing it for him.
I'm doing it for him. subhanho wa taala. So
he says he continues, Rahim Allah and there's something here that I wanted to emphasize. He says for in a bootable photo to image Buddha to non Ahmadi nada says your heart had been fashion has been created to love one who is nice and kind to anyone who's kind to you, you automatically will love him. He says for kefir, how is it then? How much love would you have? For the one whom all good things come from?
The all the good things that have come to you in your life had come from him? Subhanahu wa taala. Right.
So he says while I'm at work by habit, there is a general rule eternal and he says Love has to causes Beauty and the given that Allah azza wa jal gives it
what does he mean that all the good things come to you from Allah subhanho wa taala. So please, somebody in the street stops you gives you something for free water and it's really a hard day.
Do you feel gratitude for that? Absolutely. Your parents, your spouse, your children, giving you a gift simply for the sake of what we love you. Do you feel gratitude and love? Absolutely do you? Now think about it. Everything that your parents has given to you was supplied because of
Allah has served who put in the hearts of your parents, that they should love you. That connection who created that connection was origin who created in your heart that connection towards your children and their connection to you? The connection towards yourself and their connection to the love that you have to
towards people and then loving you back. You think that if we really if people really know us,
really fully know us that they will love us as much as they love us.
But Allah has limited, hidden the worst part of us and expose the best parts. And so people love you. And you say, what did I do to deserve that love? And what did I do to deserve that intention? And what did I do to deserve that gratitude, and you did what? Nothing except that ALLAH as though it is coming to you on Monday. So he gave you all of it. So all that love that you're receiving,
you receive because of Allah. So, in addition to all the newcomers will not be called a millionaire and that information Allah, every hammer, if you count it comes to you from Allah azza wa jal account, my parents because of Allah, my children because of Allah, the food that I eat because of Allah, if I'm safe because of ALLAH. So he says, The heart will love Allah as though did when you understand the damage that he had given to you. So this is one thing that would cause you to love him Subhana Allah to Allah more remembering the hammer. But he says, This is not the only reason this is the aid of each man. This is what what Allah gave you. But there is also there Hmm, that
Allah in Himself is the most beautiful and the most generous, that honest all you he deserves to be loved.
Even if he ate nothing, on his own, he deserves to be loved.
So you love Allah I certainly because of who he is, and you love Allah azza wa jal because of what he gives, and most people have access to which of the two
the first or the second, the second, because of what I like is, most people have access and they love Allah xojo because of what he gives, and it is found that that they can climb into loving Allah because of who he is. It's
a step. But you don't immediately discover that unless Allah holds you to him. So how does Allah fool you to him, he reminds you of his numbers. I've given you this, you find that repeated in the Quran, and the rain, and the plants and protection and add and toy Allah so did reminding of these numbers, of course, to solidify Tohei so that you can call on anybody else except him so kinda with that, but also that you would graduate in love from that into loving Allah as the origin for who he is. So the first level of love and the first level of Eman is weak,
is weak, it's not that it's insufficient, that hamdulillah it is sufficient. But that's the weakest level.
That's like when, when a nurse in the Yabut alojado
unit minorly Wayne Asaba COVID-19 in color dalla Ji various, there are people who will worship Allah azza wa jal on an edge on the edge, meaning not very stable.
He said Alayhi Salatu was Salam and explaining this he said, a person would accept Islam and migrate to Medina.
And then if his wife
gives birth to healthy children, and his animals give birth to healthy progeny, he says this is a good religion.
And if his wife miscarries, or does not give birth, and his animals die, he says this is a curse religion.
That is another is based on what? What we receive or were denied. Right? So when you find your email, and all of us are subject to this when you find your email and that it's great when Allah gives you, but it dips when Allah does not give you that is we're still in that state of what
the first level
and we need to emphasize the thankfulness of Allah as when he gives and when he takes the gratitude and climb into a seed. When we think Allah azza wa jal regardless for who he is, and we see Allah as denial as given.
Allah is limited when he denies us we see it as he given us but that takes Iman that takes wisdom.
So we've known as Brian Allah when he said
this is love he calls it when he had that though he the feel he'll be Arsal Allah subhanahu wa I will say the ones that are Jamie, how could you be What about Talita to the
mean when you hit either Aetherium so I'm going to translate this piece he says, when this toe heat in love. Allah has sent all of his messengers and revealed all of his
to books, and then all the message of the messages of Allah azza wa jal from the first to the last are unanimous in calling to. And it is for him that Allah had created the heavens and the earth. And he created Jana and he greeted hellfire. So he made Jana for the people of his love. And he made Hellfire for the people who associate P others with Islam.
That is when you hear this,
that is start to convince you that love is essential and isn't that the start to convince you that one is central
to Allah has the hotel's creation to Allah's message to Allah's relationship to him, and how you should relate to the Quran and how you should relate to how Medallia Salatu was set up. And we will share our seed also in how to relate to other people as well.
So, Allah has so good when He calls you to His worship, what does he want from you just simply surrender and submission. When he wants you to stay away from the Haram What does he want from you simply surrender and submission for is that there is something else that Allah Azza did wants to build up in our hearts, that is love me more than you love anything else, and be willing to sacrifice for me more than anything else. And that is the thing that shows how much you love Allah subhanho wa Taala
where is that love? That love is waiting for us how when we learn where to find it. So this series began in that zone, it is not intended to be simply a theoretical, a cerebral study, that you will learn it being a surgeon, but then what happens after you learn it.
I don't want it to be academic. It shouldn't be academic, because you're not going to feel the love of Allah as though unless you actually start practicing these things. So when you hear a man is based on love, a goddess based on love, and you will discover how in detail, we would have to take these details and start applying them and make the love of Allah azza wa jal our main motivation with the other balancers in terms of emotion. But may Allah azza wa jal and his lung, our main motivation, so you learn it, but you need to apply it, you take it and you need to change your life based on it, or at least have an intention. And as Allah has the ability to help us make itself
and teach others that there is another complementary primary way of understanding Islam and also relating to Allah subhanahu what to it?
keep these questions in mind.
Okay, and keep you know, other questions in mind insha Allah so let me
read some of these questions. What does it mean to love Allah azza wa jal? And how?
What are the contemporary understandings understandings of love, because we're not only going to be discovering love in Islam, we're going to be trying to correct love in popular society, notions of love, of what to love and what not to love. What love means is love, as we said, an absolute value, or does it need to be guided by? What does it mean to be romantically involved? What does it mean? When we say love is unconditional? And Can love be unconditional? Can you love without hate? And what is hate based on? And what do we mean by hate? Can love be an extreme? Can it be harmful? What examples do we have of that?
in a sense, also, we're trying to offer not only Muslims, but also the general society, and it's an understanding of what they're missing.
So you're living in a secular society,
and a secular society has God inside or banishes God?
Do you feel God is a secular society? No, you don't feel right. So nobody talks about God values that Allah has them to loves or not inside society. It doesn't regulate, it doesn't inspire. So the only thing that you talked about is what? In a secular society, the material
secular society is very materialistic in motivation,
in assessment, and in reality, the only thing that matters is the flesh and money and worldly success, and that drives up the heart and the soul. They shrivel, because Allah azza wa jal did not create you to simply eat and drink. You need to
Something else to feed them so that what feeds your soul in a secular society? Nothing. So what is left, you're left with what a gaping hole, you're left with the cries of the soul and the heart. So you tried to numb it?
How do you numb the soul and the heart in a secular society,
and you take intoxicants.
And you suffer because of it. You buy, and you keep buying, you distract yourself, by worldly pleasure. And you keep moving from one to the other. Eye, you try to drown the pain of the soul and the pain of the heart. So what we're trying to say is that there is something very lacking in a secular society. And if you're in it, you must notice it and feel it. And then if they try to balance it by saying love.
The only thing that matters is love and love is the answer. So they sing the praises of love. But it's incomplete, incoherent and it doesn't really have answers to those who want to understand what to love and how to love it. And how does this actually helped me? And how does it answer my questions? So we want to answer those questions as well. So that we be able to practice our religion the best. And we're able also by the word of Allah azza wa jal to offer a vision of religion and a vision of Islam that says to them, here is how you can love Allah azza wa jal, not in an extreme fashion
because they push for that, whether it's within Islam or outside of Islam, now they're in an extreme fashion that undermines the transcendence of Allah or undermines the laws of Allah or undermines Heaven and Hell, no in a balanced fashion that makes you a true servant of Allah subhanho wa taala.
And it's a balance, but we need to understand it without exaggeration
the series insha Allah the lectures insha Allah are going to complement the book. So the book is available and you can purchase it. So as a person to be asked, what is the connection between the lecture and the book, basically, they're supposed to be complimentary.
So the book will have more details, but in the lecture or offer a little bit more explanation of certain points of the book, examples highlights. So hopefully, if you read and listen or listen or read your band be able insha Allah in the last hour to have the best of patient when it comes to what this hadith is saying and what it wants from you. And if there are something missing from the book or missing from the lecture, you will find it in the other beadnell as
well and a relationship also to have a book Previous to this, which is hot therapy, whether you have listened to it online, or you've read it with
these books are supposed to again complement each other. The whole therapy is about cleansing the heart and building up your Eman to Ischia.
And now why would consider the foundation before this book, but you still can listen and read this book before that one but I would still work in men. If you finish this book in terms of what either Reading it or listening to this series. Go back to her therapy. Because in order to build up the love of Allah azza wa jal, we also need to cleanse the heart from its attachments.
The heart is an arena of competition of love.
So you love Allah azza wa jal but guess what you look also what?
What is, by the way, the main competition to the love of Allah. If you will, someone were to ask you, the main competitor.
Love ourselves like you love yourself and yourself is part of what
you're in what
the Dooney because you love yourself, right? But you love yourself. So you want for it what the dunya.
So, hope would dunya are also fully healthier. The love of the dunya is the root cause of all sin.
So when you're struggling internally with this and that understand that you're struggling with the love of Allah on the one hand, but then a lot over the D on the other, which includes, as the sister said, the love of the sun.
So unless you're able to cleanse the heart of those attachments, long attachments, to sin, to share it to be the two things that we just gotten used to unless you're able to do that. You're not gonna have enough space for the love of Allah as it will always be minimal and miniscule and small
and it will be easy to disobey Allah azza wa jal for the sake of other greater loves. But if you're able to displace the love of the dunya for the love of Allah inside
And then you will feel the sweetness of a bladder and you will feel the motivation for it. And you'll feel like you want to do more for the sake of Allah azza wa jal and you will feel the sweetness after you do it. Because again, you're not doing it out of compulsion. You're not doing it because you have to, you're doing it Oh, also because you want to, and there's a huge difference between the two. And somebody forcing you to go somewhere and you saying, I want to be there.
So, being in the zone, we're gonna stop here. And I want to see me ninja if you're gonna have questions for me the plan with Ninja Zoltan is that we will do one Hadith per week. Now, I may decide later on that we could do a couple of Hadees a week depending on how things proceed. But at least the plan and maybe now if you want to follow up is that today we did the introduction with Nila, as originally Sophia. Next week, we'll do Hadith number one, and so on and so on. And if the plan changes, I will let you know that I want to leave few minutes at the end to see if you have questions
or things that you want to add. That's Welcome. Please
I'm sorry. Just if you
they would not be
animals would not be capable of loving Allah. Okay.
Is that your question?
Okay, that's one way of distinguishing.
So, is there a way by way of distinguishing between animals and humans in that animals cannot love Allah but humans can. I would say that humans have the ability to love Allah at levels that is not available to animals, right. So, you see, for instance, that when you around animals for a long time that the animals do love you,
right? They actually have that capacity to love, they love their children, they love those who are kind to them. And sometimes they are so loyal, that they are more loyal than a lot of human beings. Right? So we know that they have that capacity. And we know that Allah azza wa jal tells us that everything praises Allah, Allah knows him
we know that the animals have their own sada and then they have own dhikr of Allah has that in their heart, and in their minds, they know their Creator, and they understand who He is and they praise him Subhanallah data in ways that not accessible to us. So they have that knowledge and they have that type of let's call it a data but they're not required to actually do our tap of a button but let's call it let's call it Nicar if they do that type of ticker and they have that type of knowledge, I will not deny them the basic level of love of Allah. Right. So I think that is available to them. But the humans have the ability to transcend because they have books for men's
panel with Allah and the ability to reason and understand that they could climb in levels of love of himself and our data that would not be available to the animals.
So that is my reply. And I hope that is convincing
Okay, okay. So, the question is that if Allah azza wa jal creates things because he loves them. And don't think that he did not anticipate that question, right. But I was just kind of keeping it till next sessions, but we can quickly answer it in sha Allah. So if Allah so that creates everything because he loves them.
Why is it that he created the shapefile? And also why is it that he created alcohol and drugs and then goes and prohibits them? Right? So remember that I said that Allah azza wa jal creates everything because of love and for love, either he loves it immediately, directly, or he loves the consequences, right? So Allah azza wa jal can read things that he loves, like Muhammad Ali salatu salam, like all the prophets, all beautiful things that he sees things that he loves and they are beneficial. But he creates it lease because he loves it least at this moment.
meant or last one at least leads to he loves what increase leads and what is this lead to he becomes a test for humanity without Iblees the test will not be available and we'll talk about that in Sharla But just for now, I just want to let you know, it could have been asked me why do we need the test that's related, but for now it please serves a function. Right? So in this whole structure that we call The Universe and the creation of Adam and Heaven and Hell and all of this and the messages of Allah xojo Please serves a function without him that function or that end will not be available. The same thing with alcohol and drugs. They serve as a test right? So Allah as you can see, who
loves him more than what temps who loves him more than what tempts him on this route? So if you can say no to these things, then your love for Allah grows and that is a test that solidifies and grows your love without it your love would not grow.
So it's this test it is this ordeal it is this testing that grows your love so Allah loves it for that not Allah knows the harm that is in it and Allah wants you to say no to it because of himself. So that's right. So if God is like roughly I say question a little bit
okay okay you had a question
Does Allah forgive ship if what
Okay, so, if someone is alive and the image ship and they repent from it, then everything is forgiven. So repentance will forgive everything including ship right. So when we say that ship is not covered by Allah's forgiveness, we mean that after a person dies having not repented from a major ship, and there is no excuse he received Allah's message, he knows that he understands it did not repent from it dies in that state, we say that cannot be forgiven, but as long as the person is alive and breathing, and they repent, all of that can be forgiven. Okay.
So let me try to see this
in which context or content I think context, maybe you mentioned the questions like can we love unconditionally? And two more questions. The meaning of loving Allah is Do you mean that the answers to these questions we're going to find in these lectures Yes, that's what I mean by that is as the lectures in sha Allah and fold one by one we're going to be tackling some of these questions based on the heady see will take one Hadith will understand it and will say, let's see what that hadith teaches us about some of these things that we're talking about. So hopefully, we can end up by the end of it, you have understood as much about love as possible, or at least as unique. So all these
questions were given in that as the origin as far as I know, they are still in the book, so bear with us as we can answer them.
So I think the question is here, right, this is not a question. Okay.
So I think we're about done anyone who has just one extra question of
concepts of what I'm sorry? Mercy.
The concept of love and concept of mercy. So of course, you understand that Allah azza wa jal loves and he is a lover dude. So one of his needs subhanaw taala is the one that will do the old loving and that Allah is Zoda is merciful. And he is a rock metal Rahim. So he's also has a name based on mercy. So these are his names and these are his successor.
And we understand that there is sometimes overlap between them and sometimes they don't overlap, right. So Allah as religion
you can discover a lot about Allah's love through his mercy. What do you find that being merciful with the believers, and even merciful with the non believers by delaying their punishment by sending them prophets by sending them reminder? This is all a an echo or reflection of his mercies Tana with that, in fact, no, it's his mercy, it's his Rama. At the same time a person who is disobeying
Allah azza wa jal with sharing, you wouldn't say that Allah loves him at this moment. You didn't say that Allah loves what he's doing at this moment, but Allah is merciful.
Right? So Allah azza wa jal loves what he loves. Right? But he is merciful with everybody at all times. And even Subhan Allah even when Allah azza wa jal gets angry, right? And at that particular moment, he's not merciful, you get still fine in his anger, signs of mercy. Because when he's angry and he punishes and he takes away the harmful things right on this earth, He removes them. That's right.
So Allah xojo channel Adana is constantly Rahim, Allah azza wa jal, right is constantly loving over the relievers. And Allah is total love can be constantly seen as well as his Rama, but they don't always overlap. So lucky to be merciful with some, but not loving of what they're doing and loving what they are at that moment, although later they could change. So that the law admin is the best that I can offer at this moment. Insha Allah, but allow me to think more about it than it may be.
Fair Insha Allah, they both are going along with the gun, which is going along here. And we're going to continue in sha Allah the same time, same day, when the last bill Alameen you can come with the data, his lectures, have read, have having read everything, or at least just having read the Hadith, or maybe having nothing but what I hope insha Allah from you, that when you are present in sha Allah be as instant as you can and absorb it. And if you can go back and read, that's wonderful, but at least absorb it and then say to yourself, I've learned something new today, hopefully you've learned it, then what am I going to do with that thing. And as we accumulate knowledge within that zone,
let's see if our practice and our relationship with Allah as it can improve. And not only our relationship with Allah as you will go through the book, but also your human to human relationship, human and family relationship, near with neighbors, and also with animals and also with everything that is around if we're saying everything is based on love of Allah Zildjian let's see the manifestation of that knowledge and our behavior with satanic law behind the shadow at night you
could handle that. I mean, Salam Alaikum wa ye or what
