00:00:20 --> 00:00:44

We ask Allah azza wa jal to bless us with knowledge and with wisdom and with application and with sincerity in seeking what pleases Him subhanho wa Taala and the strength of staying away from what angers him and to make us among his beloved, not among those who have been cast away I mean, Bill Alameen

00:00:46 --> 00:00:48

Hadith 12

00:00:49 --> 00:00:51

For today in sha Allah.

00:00:53 --> 00:00:57

And it's a beautiful Hadith reported by Bukhari and Muslim.

00:00:58 --> 00:01:07

And it's a hadith you probably have heard before, but we're going to try in sha Allah, this time to extract from it.

00:01:08 --> 00:01:16

The emphasis on Allah's love and how Allah's love spreads to cover everything.

00:01:17 --> 00:01:22

So the title of the chapter is Allah is the source of all love.

00:01:23 --> 00:01:39

Allah is the source of all love and if you just contemplate that idea, that all love comes from Him Subhan Allah to Allah and he is its source. It will magnify in your eye, Allah azza wa jal being the beloved.

00:01:41 --> 00:02:03

And let's not delay the Hadith itself because the Hadith explains it. He says kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam either a hob Allahu Abdon neither Jibreel he says when Allah loves someone he calls on to Gibreel and he says in Allah your hippo Falana that Allah loves so and so for a bird so love him

00:02:05 --> 00:02:24

for your hippo who would you believe so debris loves this person for unity debris raffia Haley sama didn't reveal calls to the people of the skies. The angels that inhabit the skies in the Lucha yo hippo food and unfair Hey boo for your water Hello summer for my yo Darla whole caboodle he added.

00:02:25 --> 00:02:45

So Gibreel says Allah loves so and so. So love him. So the inhabitants of the sky, all of them love that person. And then you will the whole the whole caboodle will or the acceptance for that person will be placed on Earth, meaning that people will like him, people will love him, people will accept him while either Ebola Abda

00:02:47 --> 00:03:20

if Allah azza wa jal hates, someone died, you breed a fire who in the obrigado fallen and forbid who is that Allah calls Gibreel and he says, I hate SO and SO SO hates him. So Gibreel hates him for my una devia had his MA in Allah, Allah and and fabricado then he calls unto the people of heaven and people of the skies. And he says, Allah hates so and so so hate him so they hate him for metodo Hola, hola, Baja, or Phil or then hatred will be established for him on the face of this earth.

00:03:22 --> 00:03:42

Right? Because Allah Zota loves him. He finds love on Earth. And because Allah hates him, that's for the other person, he'll find that on Earth. So where it begins from it begins with Allah azza wa jal then to Gibreel to the people of the skies as Samoa went to the people of Earth, that's how it goes.

00:03:44 --> 00:03:52

And what a beautiful thing for a person to know. That they could have everything loved them.

00:03:54 --> 00:03:59

Everything love them, like all the angels of Allah azza wa jal could love him or her.

00:04:01 --> 00:04:18

And everything on earth will love them. But where does that come from? Like they are receiving this immense love coming from every direction. They are beloved by everyone and we will expand on what that means and it's why some people don't like you and some people like you.

00:04:19 --> 00:04:29

But that everything and everyone loves you. And the source of all of this is Allah azza wa jal and the source of it is the love of Allah subhana wa Tada. If you think about it,

00:04:30 --> 00:04:40

love among all the emotions that we have. And this is one thing that we keep talking about in the book. It's the supreme emotion, all other emotions emanate from it.

00:04:41 --> 00:04:58

Love and fear. I mean, hey, I mean, you're talking about even if you're talking about hate, but hope and fear that emanate from that. And it is this love that makes our existence on earth beautiful and worth living.

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

And it's the thing

00:05:00 --> 00:05:01

They're all of us pursue

00:05:02 --> 00:05:26

all of us from infancy, you're looking to your parents for love. And as you grow, you're looking for love around you. You're looking for love when you marry and we're looking for love when you have children. And when you're looking for love when you have friends, and you're looking for love, sometimes in the wrong places, among the wrong things.

00:05:27 --> 00:06:06

But in all of these things, you're looking for something to love you on something to give you that warmth of acceptance that I belong, that someone cares about me. So if a person if you could imagine a person living without love, that would be a life not worth living, because there will be no joy in it. And Subhan Allah Allah azza wa jal in his infinite mercy and Rama, even to the disbelievers, he gave them love. People love them. Right? There are people who love them. They're disbelievers product, Alavi, there are disbelievers, but there are people who love them and there are animals that love them.

00:06:08 --> 00:06:09

And so Allah did not deprive them.

00:06:11 --> 00:06:16

And that is a gift from him. Subhan Allah to Allah because it's impossible to continue to live without love.

00:06:17 --> 00:06:18


00:06:19 --> 00:06:23

the thing here about the love that we find among creation,

00:06:24 --> 00:06:32

is that when you pursue it, whether you know it or not, you're looking for Allah has ordered.

00:06:34 --> 00:06:47

Right? Whether you know it or not, you're looking for Allah azza wa jal, because there is this incessant need within you to look for it. You want it you can't live without it. So you keep looking for it.

00:06:48 --> 00:07:05

And similar to other pursuits in life, what you will find is that whatever you are seeking, which is internal essential to your own existence, if you're seeking it among humanity is always imperfect and flawed.

00:07:06 --> 00:07:10

So you keep looking for that perfect version of it.

00:07:12 --> 00:07:17

And that perfect version of it, or that perfection, is Allah azza wa jal.

00:07:18 --> 00:07:22

So naturally, we're looking for beauty, wherever we live.

00:07:24 --> 00:07:54

Doesn't matter who we are. But we're always seeking beauty, you seek beauty in your mate, you seek beauty in the things that you own, you seek beauty, and you want it to be reflected in your own image. But you're always looking for beautiful things. So when you buy, you buy the most beautiful thing you can afford houses, clothes, right? You buy them because you need beauty, you have a fitrah looking for it that needs it. And it needs to be around you that what do you notice about beauty

00:07:55 --> 00:07:56

that you seek,

00:07:57 --> 00:08:03

is that it doesn't last, right? The new thing that you buy becomes old.

00:08:04 --> 00:08:47

The beautiful thing that is around you, even a human being right, they age, they lose their beauty. You look at your own image, and you are losing your own beauty. So whatever beauty you seek, right, it's not eternal. It's not perfect. It's not complete, and it doesn't last. You're looking for kindness, and mercy. You seek it among your parents, you seek it with your friends, with your family, whatever. But you will find that that mercy is not always complete. Not mercy is not always comprehensive is not willing to accept you all the time. It can forgive you at times, but not others. So you're always looking. And you can imagine that complete sense of mercy, that complete

00:08:47 --> 00:09:07

sense of forgiveness, where someone can tell you, I forgive you, as if that thing never happened. So in your mind, you have an idea of that perfection, right? And all of these concepts and their earthly manifestations, you have an idea of that perfection. But that perfection fails you

00:09:09 --> 00:09:55

on earth. So you seek the next beautiful thing. And the next beautiful thing, and the next beautiful thing, and it fills you with this satisfaction because none of them can fill the gap that you have. And there's always a gap. And there's always dissatisfaction and there is always anxiety. Where is that thing that's gonna make me fall and hold the thing that will complete this nice satisfy me, so I don't have to seek anymore. I don't have to worry anymore. I don't have to lose this thing. And begin my search a new because now the beauty that I had is gone. The love that I have is gone. The mercy that I have is gone. The kindness the character that I'm looking for that is perfect is

00:09:55 --> 00:10:00

imperfect, and no one is perfect anymore. Where is this perfection? So

00:10:00 --> 00:10:34

Every beauty leads you to another to another and every proof every generosity every kindness, and every love leads you and pushes you towards Allah azza wa jal until you realize I've reached the end. That's perfection. So the love of Allah azza wa jal is that complete perfect love, and every love in the dunya points back to him subhanho wa Taala points back to him in a sense of he is the one who began it and He is the One who created it and he is the one who put it and he is the one who spread it.

00:10:35 --> 00:10:37

So, one quote from Abdul Abdul

00:10:39 --> 00:10:52

Rahim Allah he says, I would do well muhabba T beggin a nurse, Allah who you have to do how I said the way up so to her he says love and affection between people. Allah begins it and Allah spreads it.

00:10:53 --> 00:10:54

Nene does not you.

00:10:55 --> 00:10:57

Love for your kids in you

00:10:59 --> 00:11:20

is natural from Allah azza wa jal the love that they have for you is from Allah azza wa jal, the love among humans, it's natural in them. So Allah begins it, and then Allah expands it. And that it tells you that the one who is behind all of this love, His love is much greater than the individual instances of that love.

00:11:21 --> 00:11:29

Right. So a love of a mother, a love of a father, a love of a spouse, a love of a child, these are on fractions.

00:11:30 --> 00:11:35

But the love of Allah azza wa jal in addition to it being divine and without limit,

00:11:36 --> 00:11:51

it's also of the originator of all love. So the love of Allah azza wa jal if a person understands this is exists at such a magnitude that it is incomprehensible in its fullness.

00:11:52 --> 00:11:57

So if Allah loves you, He loves you much more than any human being can love you.

00:11:59 --> 00:12:42

And if you love Allah azza wa jal well of that is available that you could give to him SubhanaHu wa to Allah with your heart is much more than any than any other love that you can give to another human being. Because the capacity that Allah has to take you in and give is much more than any other human being. Humans can disappoint you and they will. And their imperfection takes away from how much love you can give to them how much you could devote yourself to them. But Allah azza wa jal is perfect. And so you can give and give and give and reach levels in love at the end of your life. And you can still give more to Allah azza wa jal, so there is no end to it.

00:12:43 --> 00:12:51

And that tells you that that relationship is unique. And that relationship is waiting for those who will embrace it.

00:12:54 --> 00:12:56

We can say that

00:12:59 --> 00:13:00

everything that we love

00:13:01 --> 00:13:28

is a pursuit of meaning. And it's a pursuit of Allah's love. And when you love Allah, and Allah loves you, then you have meaning in the dunya you know where you're going, you know your place. You know what's right, you know what's wrong, when you lose something, you have an understanding of why that loss is there and it's originated or happened from someone who loved you.

00:13:30 --> 00:13:32

For reasons of love,

00:13:33 --> 00:13:50

so they are comprehensive. So the love of Allah azza wa jal gives you meaning in the dunya gives your life a purpose, and it gives you a life and end meaning when I die. There is something that comes after and that thing that comes after is based on loving Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:13:51 --> 00:14:00

So loving Allah azza wa jal gives you all meaning and losing that love takes away all meaning from this slide.

00:14:02 --> 00:14:06

So we said that, according to the Hadith,

00:14:07 --> 00:14:50

that love among creation, is tied to and as a consequence of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah loving you. So we have instances here where Allah azza wa jal had given love to His Beloved, and because of that people loved him. So when Allah zoton says, In the Quran, speaking to Musa are about Musa alayhis salam, welcome to ALEC mad butter mini Well, it was an eye opening, and he says an eye into into endued you with love from me. I surrounded you with love from Me, so that you may be brought up under my eye.

00:14:52 --> 00:15:00

So he's reminding Musa alayhis salam of what one of the favors early favours of Allah isodiol upon Musa is that he

00:15:00 --> 00:15:05

He had imbued Musa with love as an infant.

00:15:06 --> 00:15:10

So that everyone who sees Musa will what?

00:15:12 --> 00:15:56

Love him will be defenseless in front of Musa. Right. You think about it, how defenseless was Musa himself when he was an infant in a basket in the river? How defenseless was he? Who was taking care of him? The mother said I couldn't. So I'm giving you to Allah azza wa jal, right? So Allah azza wa jal inspired her to do this. So she did this because that's the only way she could save him. No, so this Musa now who is an infant, you couldn't you couldn't imagine someone who could be weaker than Musa right. What made him strong, that he could penetrate the palace of Pharaoh

00:15:57 --> 00:16:05

and be secured by no other than the person who wanted to kill him the most? What made that possible? What made him strong?

00:16:07 --> 00:16:08

Allah is love for him.

00:16:09 --> 00:16:11

So when Allah loved him,

00:16:12 --> 00:16:30

all other defenses fell, all other plots fell. They saw Musa alayhis salam and they said, we can't let go of this boy, we will take care of him and we will feed him and we will spend on him. And that is because Allah azza wa jal loved him. So if Allah loves you,

00:16:32 --> 00:17:00

people will love you. Right? And that's the connection between these two loves and that is, by the way open and available to all believers. So Allah azza wa jal says in the Latina M and what I mean oh sorry, her DISA Jade hola como Rahman woulda, he says the merciful will bestow love to those who believe and do righteous deeds meaning if you have Iman, and you do good, Allah azza wa jal will give you what

00:17:01 --> 00:17:13

will give you love. And the meaning here of that Mujahid says as of zero to every quarter, you hit boom, while you have people who eat healthy, he loves them, and he makes people love them.

00:17:14 --> 00:17:36

That is, if you do good, if you believe in Allah azza wa jal, if you live as He wants you to live, what happens is Allah loves you because of it. But love doesn't stop there. But Allah makes people love you as well. Because their love is an extension of Allah's love. It has to happen that way. They will love you, they will have no choice but to love you.

00:17:37 --> 00:17:42

Not because it's compulsion. But because it's natural, and rational.

00:17:44 --> 00:17:51

Because it makes sense. Just like when you see someone who's honest, don't you admire them and love them? Right?

00:17:52 --> 00:17:56

There's someone that have to tell you, you need to admire an honest person.

00:17:57 --> 00:17:58

Or is that planted in you?

00:17:59 --> 00:18:12

That's planted, he sees someone who's generous and kind, forgiving. The somebody have to tell you admire them, emulate them, that's in you, as long as you have the fedora that's in you, it's planted.

00:18:13 --> 00:18:32

So the same thing, your Fedora, if not corrupted, is tied to Allah subhanho wa taala. You like what he likes, because it agrees with you, and you hate what he hates, even if part of your Shaohua your lust tells you I want to see more of this or do more of this. But you know there is something

00:18:33 --> 00:19:01

denigrating in it, there's something bad about it a contaminant, it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth when you do it. Or when you look at it, you feel uncomfortable. So lust, yeah. But it also feels like it makes you feel miserable. That's again, your fitrah talking to you. So that's the sense of you must love them. Because when you look when you see that, it just agrees with you. And somebody you know may say

00:19:02 --> 00:19:03

for you,

00:19:04 --> 00:19:12

the prophets of Allah alayhi wa Salatu was Salam. They are the most beloved to Allah. Did everybody like them and love them?

00:19:13 --> 00:19:27

That's not Yeah, not everybody liked them. There were some people who hated them so much that they wanted to kill them. So how you reconcile that Allah loves them so much. And then you have people hate them.

00:19:28 --> 00:19:33

What do we say? It depends on the people that we are talking about. Not everybody.

00:19:34 --> 00:19:41

But those who are righteous. Those were the right FITARA those who listen to Allah azza wa jal will love what Allah Allah.

00:19:42 --> 00:19:59

These are the ones are we talking about? But the ones who are fighting Allah and fighting his prophets have chosen to love what Allah hates. So of course, they're not going to agree with the love of Allah azza wa jal will follow their own desire, whereas the believers their desire agrees

00:20:00 --> 00:20:25

is with Allah azza wa jal wherever Allah says yes, they say yes, because they have learned to submit. And what Allah says no, they say no, even if they have to struggle a little bit with their own selves, and overcome their hesitations and their own weaknesses at times, but they submit to Allah as surgeon and they see some no Atlanta, this is right, this is best, we'll follow it when they submit their heart follow.

00:20:26 --> 00:21:11

So the ultimately love what Allah loves and they hate what Allah hates others who had left the reigns loose and they were following their own desire. Yeah, they will hate whatever they hate. And they will love whatever they love regardless of what Allah does. So we are talking about the righteous, that when Gibreel alayhi salam calls on the people of the heavens and the love, and then love spreads on Earth, we're talking about primarily the righteous, and those who are pleasing to Allah azza wa jal, and it could extend in some other cases to the wicked or the sinful, it could, but primarily, we're talking about the righteous, and that maybe we could kind of distill this from

00:21:11 --> 00:21:13

the following Hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam.

00:21:14 --> 00:21:32

So once a funeral pass by him Ali Salatu was Salam and the companions and they praised the dead person. So the prophets of Allah hottie he was salam said he received it would you bet, meaning stablished and then another janazah, passed by

00:21:33 --> 00:22:00

the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And they criticized the dead person. And he said he received it or it established. So Omar Radi Allahu anhu, as the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam What is this and what what is your do you mean by wager, but established, he received it? So he said, Sal, Allahu alayhi wa sallam he says the first you praised him. And so he received Jana.

00:22:01 --> 00:22:14

Jana is established for him. And the second you criticized, you mentioned bad things about him evil things about him, and he received hellfire. You are the witnesses of Allah on earth.

00:22:15 --> 00:22:17

You are Allah's witnesses on Earth.

00:22:18 --> 00:22:19


00:22:21 --> 00:22:28

that had eve if you understand it, in light of the mean Hadith of the chapter will make sense.

00:22:29 --> 00:23:02

Because how are we Allah's witnesses on Earth, any Muslim, no matter what they like and whatever they hate, or people who actually their witness agrees with the love of Allah xojo and his hate. It is those who are righteous who are submitted to him surrendered to Him, when they speak, not individually, but communally collectively, with one voice like this, they do actually represent a witness on Earth, reflecting the love of Allah azza wa jal or the opposite.

00:23:03 --> 00:23:18

So when they phrased it, and we're talking about the Sahaba, when they praised it, you say, Allah zoton would not have made you like him and love him, and you are the best people on Earth, unless he was pleasing to Allah.

00:23:19 --> 00:23:20

You with me?

00:23:21 --> 00:23:54

Allah would not have made that possible unless this person is pleasing to Allah azza wa jal, and if you the best people on earth you criticized him, Allah has visited would not have given him that bad reputation unless he is with Allah in a similar position, but you gotta be among those people. So if you see for instance, today, among the non Muslims or even among the Muslim masses, somebody famous die and they are displeasing to Allah and everybody cries over him and make dua for him. That in itself is not a witness.

00:23:55 --> 00:24:42

Why? Because we're talking about the righteous, speaking with justice, not the entire Muslim masses who like this person because he was funny or like this person because he was a good entertainer or a good athlete. These are not things that please Allah azza wa jal, no, these people could be in one way or another pleasing to Him subhanho wa Taala in ways that escaped us in ways that are between them and him subhanho wa Taala but a witness would be based on a reputation on earth that the righteous see, and they sense and they praise him, masha Allah He was this in this in the masjid with sadaqa with the Quran with forgiving people with with with with with,

00:24:44 --> 00:24:59

then they give that witness and that becomes his reputation on earth. And he said, also Ali's Salatu was Salam and mommy known as shahada or life in all the believers Allah Allah, Allah has witnesses on Earth, that believers in

00:25:00 --> 00:25:28

The best of the best. So if you see the scholars of Islam, the righteous, the worshipers praising someone, this is a very good sign. This is a very good sign. And if you see them criticizing someone, that is a very bad sign for the person. And there's a hadith Subhan Allah, it's beautiful to remember. He said a Salatu was Salam. I mean, I've been in La Jolla, who said on the summer,

00:25:29 --> 00:26:10

there is no servant of Allah Zoda except that he has a reputation in the skies. Meaning among the angels have Allah azza wa jal they, he has a reputation, she has a reputation. So if his reputation in the skies was the skies is good, he'll have a good reputation on Earth. And if his reputation in the skies is bad, he'll have a bad reputation on Earth. And again, we're talking about the righteous, not the most popular figure among non Muslims, or not the most popular figure among the Muslim masses, we're talking about the righteous. But the nice thing about the Hadith here is to think about the fact that you have an image here

00:26:11 --> 00:26:15

where people know about you, but you have an image up there.

00:26:16 --> 00:26:41

And which is the truest image, or reputation, the one out here, or the one up there, the one up there, that's the truest image because he can hide they know you inside out, they know you, they know the good that you've done and even the you know, the bad that you've done, so you haven't reputation over there. So Subhanallah sometimes, people don't know you here. Don't know much about you.

00:26:43 --> 00:26:50

And especially if you're a person who's interested in being known and famous, that could be a

00:26:51 --> 00:27:09

an area where that makes you sad. All right, people don't know me. You know, these people receive a lot of attention and a lot of likes and a lot of followers and a lot of fuss about them and me hardly no one notices me when I speak when I say anything when I do anything. Say to yourself it doesn't matter.

00:27:11 --> 00:27:21

Because there are two locations where you have reputation. Focus on the truest and the best, which is with Allah as Odin and with the angels of Allah azza wa jal

00:27:22 --> 00:27:34

let yourself as some sort of have said, be anonymous on Earth, known to Allah has Odin and the angels be anonymous here. Don't seek attention.

00:27:36 --> 00:27:51

Here be anonymous but with Allah assorted be famous liat if God was sama Alia Jelka Hello. Let the people of earth not know you. But the people of the heavens know you very well know you with what with your Salah and with your DUA

00:27:52 --> 00:27:54

with your Quran and with your dick

00:27:55 --> 00:28:06

that testify to you and argue on your behalf. So it is said Hello Adam that when Unison no matter Alayhis Salam

00:28:07 --> 00:28:09

was in the belly of the whale,

00:28:10 --> 00:28:14

and he was making vicar to Allah azza wa jal

00:28:15 --> 00:28:18

La ilaha illa Anta Subhana Allah in the consuming of money me.

00:28:19 --> 00:28:28

So the angels of Allah azza wa jal, they heard a faint voice coming from the depth from a very weak man, right? physically weak.

00:28:30 --> 00:28:34

And they say to a prophet or say, dia Allah, is this the voice of Yunus of no matter?

00:28:35 --> 00:28:49

Your servant who is supplicating and making vicar right now, he said, Yes. They said, Oh, we are Allah. Would you not rescue him? Because of his previous supplications and Vic?

00:28:51 --> 00:29:04

Like we know him to be a person of what? That's his reputation among as a person of Taqwa and vicar reputation. Now in his moment of need, would you not hear Allah forgive him and be merciful with him? He said, Yes.

00:29:05 --> 00:29:31

Now of course, Allah has Zota did not need prompting to do this. But Allah azza wa jal wanted that testimony so that you would learn something about it, that when you have a reputation, you have an angel of Allah xojo arguing your case, saying, Yeah, Allah, so and so. Who had made so much DUA and so much thicker is asking you would you Allah not accept his supplication and his dua and this and the way that this love come from?

00:29:32 --> 00:29:34

How did you get an angel to defend you?

00:29:36 --> 00:29:37

What did you do to deserve it?

00:29:39 --> 00:29:50

You earned it by obeying Allah azza wa jal and when you obeyed Allah, Allah loved you. So that angel loved you as well. So he's arguing your case, and making the art for you.

00:29:51 --> 00:29:52


00:29:54 --> 00:29:59

that's the beautiful thing about it. Think about your reputation in the heavens and

00:30:00 --> 00:30:04

Another one and that is reported by Muslim.

00:30:05 --> 00:30:18

This is about Omar Abdullah Aziz Rahim Allah Who are the Anhui. So how you gonna be Saudi Carla couldn't be out of her. He says we're standing in Ottawa and Omar Abdul Aziz, who's the OMA yet Khalifa then

00:30:20 --> 00:30:47

pass by well while most see me, right he's leading the hedge for common nursery on Dodona la he saw people were no more not these started walking people started to extend their necks to look at him. He grabbed their attention. They gathered football to the IBM ibbity India Allah Allah, Allah, your Hebrew, Omar Abdullah Abdullah zcc your Allah I think, or I believe that Allah loves Omar Abdul Aziz, he said why? He says because I see people love him.

00:30:49 --> 00:30:50

Because I see that people love him.

00:30:52 --> 00:31:05

And of course Omar was known to be very humble, very righteous worship of Allah azza wa jal very just so he has all of these qualities, and you find people loving him so much, what do you conclude?

00:31:07 --> 00:31:08

That is what

00:31:09 --> 00:31:34

that is a reflection of Allah's love, there is acceptance, there's Cabul for him, or you see a scholar of Islam, masha Allah, he speaks, he writes, he lectures, but also in addition to all of this, he has this reputation and people adore him. Like he's a good person. And people love him. And he said, everybody is saying beautiful things about him. It's almost unanimous. What does that tell you?

00:31:35 --> 00:31:50

Oh, boy, that we hope that this is a board from Allah azza wa jal on Earth. Right. And that is also something that a person should seek, that we also should seek.

00:31:53 --> 00:32:10

And Allah xojo when he wants the best for you, He gives that to you, especially before your death. So on page one on 133 There's a hadith where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said either had Billa who had done a Salah.

00:32:11 --> 00:32:25

Right? So in this particular narration, it says if Allah xojo loves a person, he sweetens him, he sweetens and they say what is sweet in him uracil Allah, so as salah, what is SL

00:32:27 --> 00:32:29

that's honey, so as Scylla means what?

00:32:30 --> 00:33:10

Oh, yeah, he makes him kind of like honey. He makes him like honey. Right? sweet like honey. Say what does that mean? It says you will feel older who am and on Saudi henbane a jelly at they are the one who Giovanni elmen Hola, who he says he facilitates them and eases him into doing something righteous before his death, so that those who are around him or his neighbors will be happy with him. That's what sweetens and makes him like honey, like he draws people's heart to him before especially before his death. Why because he wants people to do what love him. Because if you love him, you'll forgive him if you love him and make the art for him. And if you love him, you'll give

00:33:10 --> 00:33:30

that wonderful witness that oh, you know, so and so Masha Allah He was this and he was this and he was, and this person says it and this person says it and this person says it and that is his reputation. That's what people remember after his death. And that is a very good sign that that person is going where to the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal. So if Allah wants that for a person, he eases into him.

00:33:32 --> 00:33:38

And that is a NEMA from him, Subhan Allah to Allah that if Allah loves you, this is what he gives you. He gives you the best of death.

00:33:39 --> 00:33:50

And the best of mention, and the best of janazah and the best of Salas and he takes care of you Subhanahu wa Taala more than your family and more than

00:33:51 --> 00:33:53

you know your own self.

00:33:54 --> 00:33:58

So we say that the love of Allah azza wa jal

00:33:59 --> 00:34:34

allows you, if you imagine, you know, and when we talked about who is supposed to love you, the relevant people on Earth, the people whom Allah azza wa jal loves so if you find a lot of people who hate Allah azza wa jal hating you, that's not a sign of Allah's hate. But that's a natural consequence of doing the right thing, because doing the right thing is going to create enemies, but you're not seeking love from that direction. You're seeking love from Allah azza wa jal, and you're seeking love from the righteous, and you're also feeling love

00:34:35 --> 00:34:59

and everything that is around you, because loving Allah azza wa jal puts you in harmony with everything in this universe. So for for those who are interested in harmony or want to understand it, harmony is doing what Allah loves because everything in the universe follows that order. Play when the sun rises from the east and sets in the west. It's doing it big

00:35:00 --> 00:35:02

Allah loves that. Right?

00:35:03 --> 00:35:46

Remember, we talked about it in the beginning, we said that everything that Allah commands, he commands because he wants it to happen and he wants it to happen, because he loves that it would happen in this way. So Allah would love for the sun to rise from here and set from here, right? And he loves for the seasons to change. And electrons when they move, and the planets are the stars in their movement, whatever moves, they move in that particular orbit and direction, because Allah has the loves that they would move in that direction. So allow me then to say that they are moving with Allah's love and for Allah's love. Can I say that?

00:35:49 --> 00:36:07

Can I? I think I can right? Because Allah azza wa jal wants it to move. So it's they're moving with Allah's love and in the direction of Allah's love. So when you move in the direction of Allah's love, you're in harmony with everything in the universe, moving in the same direction, in the same rhythm

00:36:09 --> 00:36:12

is I'm sure I'm saying this for those who like harmony with nature.

00:36:14 --> 00:36:16

Right without worshiping nature.

00:36:17 --> 00:36:43

Harmony in nature means that all of it moves by Allah's command, and in that direction. So when you do it, in your salah, in your Zakah in your fasting, when you stop eating, in your EBA, the all of it, in what you refrain from all of it, you are moving in harmony with every single piece in nature, from the biggest to the smallest, every cell

00:36:44 --> 00:36:47

and every atom and every nucleus inside it.

00:36:49 --> 00:36:56

And so, if that's the case, the following Hadith would make sense. So when he said

00:36:58 --> 00:36:59

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:37:01 --> 00:37:20

in Allahu Allah Iike who Allah subhana wa T will already had the name that the future hurry our hotel hood, that you saw Luna animal unlimited. Narsil theory says indeed Allah, His angels, the inhabitants of the heavens meaning the sky, and the earth, even the ant in its hole and the fish pray for the teacher of righteousness to people.

00:37:21 --> 00:37:57

By so Allah azza wa jal phrase meaning in the sense of what elevates Salah hear is elevation. So when Allah azza wa jal Usili, meaning he elevates when the angels make Salah for you, that's dua And insofar, so the angels are making dua and is too far for you, if you're teaching people righteousness, so Okay, so we can understand Allah elevating you, because of it, we can understand the angels making dua for you. And so far, we get this because Allah has Zota loves that, and they are directly connected to him, the the end

00:37:58 --> 00:37:59

in its hole,

00:38:00 --> 00:38:04

and the fish in the sea. Why are they making too hot for you?

00:38:07 --> 00:38:09

Why are they making too hot for you?

00:38:10 --> 00:38:12

Because what you do,

00:38:13 --> 00:38:34

affects them, in addition to the fact that they are pleasing to Allah as urgent, so they will make dua, right, they will make dua, because Allah loves that. So they will praise whom Allah freezes and condemn whom Allah condemns. But in addition to it, your righteousness affects them.

00:38:35 --> 00:38:35


00:38:36 --> 00:38:37

How does it affect them?

00:38:39 --> 00:38:43

You think about it, or your sin affects them? How does it affect them?

00:38:45 --> 00:38:46

Anybody has a clue?

00:38:51 --> 00:38:53

So if it stops raining because of our sense,

00:38:54 --> 00:38:56

this does not affect them.

00:38:57 --> 00:39:11

Right? When they start dying, right, because of our sins, when we corrupt on this earth, right? Because of our greed, does it not kill them? Right? So that's why the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam you know when when he

00:39:13 --> 00:39:19

talked about a Janessa? Witness the Janessa he says mystery on almost Tara Hahnemann.

00:39:21 --> 00:39:24

Mystery one almost are Hahnemann, the one who's comforted,

00:39:25 --> 00:39:27

or one who's giving comfort with their death.

00:39:29 --> 00:39:59

Look at the look at the opposites. One who's receiving comfort, meaning the believer when they die, and that's the explanation of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, the believer when they die, they're comforted. And they are relieved of the burdens of the dunya and it's discomforts. So the believer when they died, they move into the comfort and the mercy of Allah as Odin and they leave the burden of the dunya behind. That's one category. The opposite is the disbeliever when he he is

00:40:00 --> 00:40:15

says P they give comfort with their death color yesterday. I mean will Eva do a shadow with the work? He says they give relief to people and to trees to plant life and to animals. Their death is relief.

00:40:16 --> 00:40:17

They the animals feel it.

00:40:18 --> 00:40:20

And the plants feel it.

00:40:21 --> 00:40:23

And the earth fields it and the sky feels it.

00:40:24 --> 00:40:29

So when you love Allah subhanho wa Taala everything around you is in harmony with you.

00:40:30 --> 00:40:33

The animals, the plants, the air, right?

00:40:34 --> 00:40:40

The soil, everything is in harmony with you and you are in harmony with them. But if you're opposing Allah azza wa jal.

00:40:42 --> 00:40:54

You're in conflict with everything around you, and you will eventually destroy everything around you. So that devastation that you see globally, that's an outcome of a conflict with Allah azza wa jal.

00:40:56 --> 00:41:05

When you go against your nature and against Allah azza wa jal, everything on the face of this earth opposes you, and you oppose them, and you will destroy it and it will destroy you.

00:41:06 --> 00:41:18

And not until you go back to what pleases Allah as Odin and his love that you again will circle in harmony, as Allah zodion wants everything else to flow in harmony with his commands. subhanho wa taala.

00:41:20 --> 00:41:20


00:41:22 --> 00:41:26

we talked about seeking people's love, or seeking love in general.

00:41:28 --> 00:42:12

And it's important here to know that if Allah azza wa jal is the source of our love. Seek the love that you want from him, not from the people around you. Don't make people's love primary, and Allah secondary, don't change, okay, the origin into the consequence and the consequence into the origin. What do we mean by this, that most of the time when we do things, we're seeking the approval of people around us, we're seeking their love, we're seeking their affection. If they're happy with us, then we're happy if they're not happy with us, then we're not happy. Allah has lived in a secondary or very absent, whenever we want to consider what we want to do. And if we are have a choice whether

00:42:12 --> 00:42:32

I would upset so and so or upset Allah azza wa jal, I would dare to upset Allah but not so and so. I will dare lie to Allah or about Allah but not like to so and so. I'll dare you know, to give my attention to this person because I'm afraid if I don't give it to them, they will not like me, but I will not treat Allah azza wa jal in the same way.

00:42:33 --> 00:42:45

So love of Allah doesn't matter. The love of people matters. Why? Because in our heads, I could lose a lot if I sacrifice people's love, and Allah is not primary in my mind. But

00:42:46 --> 00:42:51

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says that is the wrong way of thinking about love.

00:42:52 --> 00:43:09

If you try to please the secondary on Earth, and absurd, the primary was in the heavens, above his throne, subhanho wa taala, then you're going to lose all love, all of it, because the origin will be gone.

00:43:10 --> 00:43:15

But if you please Him subhanho wa taala, even at the expense of people who are around you,

00:43:16 --> 00:43:19

then you will get all of it sooner or later.

00:43:20 --> 00:43:25

So the love that you seek is not among people, the love that you seek is above there.

00:43:26 --> 00:43:27

And then from there, descends here.

00:43:29 --> 00:43:50

So the Hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He said, Malik, tema, sabe, the law he bissa healthiness are all the Allahu Anhu out of the unevenness. He says if you're seeking Allah's pleasure, despite people's anger, and sometimes at the expense of people's anger, Allah will be pleased with you, and He will make people pleased with you.

00:43:51 --> 00:44:03

Women will Tama Sarita nasty, be so hot in LA and if you seek ALLAH, the pleasure of people, though you are making Allah upset, Allah will be angry with you and he will make people angry with you.

00:44:05 --> 00:44:06

So see here,

00:44:07 --> 00:44:20

when we are confronted with a choice, should I do this or that and this Allah loves, but I have someone that I love who's telling me otherwise? What do I choose? Do I dare make him upset or make Allah upset?

00:44:22 --> 00:44:41

That rational and the emotional and the sensible choice would be if I make a human being upset, and Allah still loves me, this person will still love me again. Allah could change their hearts. But if I please the person out of love and I upset Allah azza wa jal, I've lost.

00:44:42 --> 00:44:46

All love and that person eventually will also come back to hate me.

00:44:47 --> 00:44:52

So don't please people in the name of love, because you're gonna lose it.

00:44:53 --> 00:44:59

And trust Allah has zoton Who gives love continuously? I mean, think about it. Every heart

00:45:00 --> 00:45:21

is in the hands of Allah azza wa jal. It's love and it's hate it's affection is in the hands of Allah azza wa jal, it fluctuates constantly and Allah is the one who moves it not you. So you say, haram and he wants me to do haram and Allah does not want that please Allah zodion and trust Him, will I lose his love?

00:45:23 --> 00:45:39

No, they will be upset. But Allah azza wa jal will bring them around. Allah will change their heart, and they will be stronger because of it. And that person will be better because of it. But they will say no, I'll do the Haram because I'm afraid that I will lose.

00:45:40 --> 00:45:47

You forgot that. That love is supplied by him. Subhana wa Tada and you just cut off the supply.

00:45:49 --> 00:46:04

Your mother, your father, your spouse, your child, your friend, co workers, whoever your neighbor, they love you. The supply is here with Allah azza wa jal, you upset him you cut off the supply, and then you think that the love is going to continue.

00:46:06 --> 00:46:29

No, Allah says here in this hadith, Allah says, I'll be angry. And if I'm angry with you wait, because this person is going to be angry? Yeah, they will smile, because you could say, but I just made them happy. And they just hugged me. And they should have just said, they said that the happiest that they've ever been, because I made that choice. How is it that they will be angry? They say wait,

00:46:30 --> 00:46:49

because that's what's going to happen. They love you because of that sin. But wait until that wears off. Wait until the next challenge. Wait until Allah changes their heart again, wait until there's a problem or friction between you and you will taste the consequences of upsetting Allah zodion and losing his love for their sake.

00:46:51 --> 00:47:10

So No sensible person will do this. And a person of iman will do this except that we are weak and we forget. So we need to remember that Allah azza wa jal wants us to make his love Subhana Allah to Allah to be the primary love. And it's enough enough to remember the Hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam here the wishes the main Hadith

00:47:12 --> 00:47:14

it's enough to feel that Allah loves you.

00:47:16 --> 00:47:37

And it's enough to feel that your name is mentioned to you to the real ra Salaam and he is being told love so and so. By Name. By designation, it's enough that you would have a reputation will all the angels of Allah Zota know your name? Does it matter then if people know you or not? If you're known up there,

00:47:38 --> 00:47:57

if you feel the love of Allah has voted, when you are reading the Quran, and you are making dua and you're making data and you feel it in you, you feel it doesn't matter then If so and so is upset with you or not as long as you are pleasing to Allah, visit matter if they're upset with you in the dunya. Because soon all of this is going to end

00:47:58 --> 00:48:24

and you will receive the full embrace, right have Allah azza wa jal and the angels of Allah and heaven and no one will be upset with you, nobody will be angry, nobody will, you will never hear a word that will upset you. So is it worth to compromise all of that for the sake of pleasing few people here for few moments, fleeting moments that will go away, no, make Allah azza wa jal the best and the greatest and say out please him.

00:48:26 --> 00:48:50

No matter what. And this is not an invitation for you to be the rudest person to everybody around you, you still need to take care of people's feelings, you still need to represent Islam in the best, most acceptable way and appealing of ways. Don't be rude to your parents or to your spouse or to your children in the name of loving Allah. No, I love Allah and I don't care about you. You don't want to do this because then they will hate Allah because of how rude you are to them.

00:48:51 --> 00:48:56

So you always want to say what to them. I love Allah zodion. And I want to love to love you.

00:48:57 --> 00:49:24

And I don't want to lose the love that we have between us. That's why I'm doing what I'm doing. So don't express your rejection or disapproval of what they want from you in harsh tones and terms. But also be loving and how you express it because you want them to feel the love of Allah, that I'm not doing it for your own sake. Or I'm doing it for your own sake because I love you and I want the love between us to state right?

00:49:26 --> 00:49:58

So if ya know, consider and we should consider the love of Allah zodion to the kind of our ultimate goal in life. That's what I want to get with every, every a burden every day and every day that I live I want Allah to love me more and I want Allah and I want to love Allah azza wa jal to to love Allah more Allah to love me more, thus my purpose and structure, everything that we do based on that principle. So whatever is pleasing to Him do

00:49:59 --> 00:50:00

and whoever is playing

00:50:00 --> 00:50:05

Using to him you'll be around them. And the opposite, whatever is displeasing to Him

00:50:06 --> 00:50:07

is poison.

00:50:08 --> 00:50:12

Because it's taken away from you the most important thing in your life

00:50:13 --> 00:50:40

and it's putting obstacles and it's weakening you. So remove it from your life. And whoever is displeasing to Him, you either turn them into someone who's pleasing or you distance yourself from, because they are obstacles on the way to Allah azza wa jal and the love of Allah as we said, defines everything. If you have it, then you have everything. If you don't have it, then ask yourself what is it that you have?

00:50:41 --> 00:50:54

I have a have a human being who loves me. Okay, great. hamdulillah that's an MO from Allah azza wa jal, but then he dies. What do I have? Or I die? What do I have in the grave alone? What do you have?

00:50:56 --> 00:50:57

You are alone.

00:50:58 --> 00:50:59

Nothing survives,

00:51:00 --> 00:51:27

except Iman. And that Iman is based on loving Allah has soldier. So nothing stays. Except that. So if you have a man and you have that love, everything else can feed it. And everything else complements it, and it makes sense. Take the central piece out. Nothing can take its place. You're eating for what you're drinking for what and you're living for what because you're gonna die.

00:51:28 --> 00:51:30

Nothing makes sense unless Allah azza wa jal is there.

00:51:32 --> 00:51:39

So we'll stop here in sha Allah. And see if you have questions, let me know.

00:51:41 --> 00:51:44

And Inshallah, I think because it's for ease and

00:51:45 --> 00:52:11

of attendance and coordination in sha Allah, I know we've changed the time, just this week, but we haven't have to change it in sha Allah for next week, so we'll make it after maghrib Inshallah, I think it might be easier for people. So roughly, maybe eight to nine. But as Maghrib goes down, it's going to not be exactly we're not going to start exactly eight all the time. But roughly, let's say eight tonight in shadow Bellamy.

00:52:19 --> 00:52:23

So I'll just wait for any questions you guys may have

00:52:31 --> 00:52:34

on the brother side, any hands? No.

00:52:35 --> 00:52:38

Okay. And on the sister side? No.

00:52:53 --> 00:52:54

Yeah, go ahead.

00:53:40 --> 00:53:48

Right, so the question is this, how do we inculcate gratitude and contentment in our youth,

00:53:50 --> 00:54:29

especially in light of what they see on social media, all the new things happening, and they compare that to what they have, and we need this new thing, and I need this, and I need this. And I need that. And you said, you know, rightfully so that adults also suffer from that as well. So I mean, we are talking about here, that intense love for the dunya that we all globally have, right because of how everybody is connected to it. And so obsessed with it. So we have love of the dunya, which is entrenched in us, but also you have a hyper love of the dunya that is taking place at this time because of social media, and that reckless and unrestrained consumption that I want more and more

00:54:29 --> 00:54:31

and more and more without any

00:54:32 --> 00:54:43

end in sight. So how you inculcate gratitude is to understand or to teach all of us and also including the children that

00:54:44 --> 00:54:46

love of the dunya right is

00:54:49 --> 00:55:00

love of the dunya How would you how would you describe that to them? It's a bit challenging, but let's let's let's to say let's talk about adults, that the more that you love the dunya the less

00:55:00 --> 00:55:12

that you will love Allah azza wa jal, the less more that you focus on it on new things, and need for the dunya never ends, you'll never be satisfied with whatever you have whatever you get becomes old and obsolete becomes

00:55:13 --> 00:55:56

old news and he wants something new to replace it. So there's always more and more and more and this avarice, this greed will consume you and it will kill you. So we need always to restrain it and restrain that by by restraining our eyes and our ears, our senses, and focusing on what benefits us so for always looking at new things, at Brands, at expensive things, that's the thing we're always thinking about. And that's the our only desire, if you restrain your sight, you're not going to be thinking about these things. So you need to divert. So for a for adults, you need to divert your attention from this to something else. And you need to replace your sight, or what you see was

00:55:56 --> 00:56:11

something more useful, something more substantial. So at the level of the superficial, you're always one more. But let's take a look at substance, whether thinking about benefiting other people helping other people donating rather than just buying

00:56:13 --> 00:56:15

this visiting quote unquote,

00:56:16 --> 00:56:22

less fortunate and helping them and seeing how less they have, so that we would be grateful for what we have.

00:56:24 --> 00:57:08

These types of comparisons are useful, but comparisons with the rich are not so diverting attention restricting time on social media, knowing what to see, I'm interpreting what you see right that all this glamour is distracting all this glamour is a test all this glamour is name bounties that will be asked about so Allah will ask you about this new thing How did you use it? And if you're going to buy something new Allah we ask you why did you waste your money on buying something that you did not need, though you could have spent it somewhere else, teach them the value of sadaqa meaning give sadaqa where is your sadaqa going is going to such an such an such famine or earthquake or show them

00:57:08 --> 00:57:53

where appropriate some of these images the need that people are experiencing so that they will feel we have a lot but also there's a lot that we can do. So they're not trapped by their own greed or by their own you know, desire. And meno asked them to do more of Islam. So more of the Quran and it's understanding more of the hadith is understanding because it will precipitate proper comprehension of the world and proper appreciation of what is right and what is wrong in it. So more Hadith and more Quran and more lectures, then in sha Allah this with time will help but restricting access to what is distracting is essential because otherwise you will always want more and more of it. I hope

00:57:53 --> 00:57:54

that helps

00:57:57 --> 00:57:58

for them on the way back yeah

00:58:09 --> 00:58:10

Allah is what?

00:58:11 --> 00:58:12


00:58:18 --> 00:58:18


00:58:19 --> 00:58:22

now I understand you said Allahu Allah

00:58:25 --> 00:58:37

the love of Allah Baraka Lafayette. Okay, so how do we comprehend the love of Allah azza wa jal, in terms of the calamities that we witness in the world, either individually or collectively, right? We say that,

00:58:39 --> 00:58:43

suppose for instance, that a person is sick.

00:58:44 --> 00:58:51

And the only way for them to witness or to understand their sickness is for Allah azza wa jal to have them let's say trip.

00:58:53 --> 00:59:01

And they break their leg. They go to the hospital, and in the hospital of they get examined, and they discovered that sickness and they receive treatment for it.

00:59:02 --> 00:59:10

Tripping and falling and breaking their leg, would that then be considered in light of that sequence? That scenario? Would that be considered bad or good for them?

00:59:14 --> 00:59:59

But do you think it would be considered good right? Because it led to something that they needed that they could not have discovered unless Allah so did I put that calamity in their life? So Allah azza wa jal, right? For a lot of us if Allah azza wa jal were not to send you trouble. You wouldn't know him. You wouldn't call on him. You wouldn't pray. You wouldn't fast you wouldn't give sadaqa most of us some are fortunate that they don't need these messages and reminders. Most of us are not like that. So if Allah as though did not trouble you, somehow, you would annoy him. And Allah azza wa jal wants you to wants to pull you to him. And sometimes the awakening is rude is hard.

01:00:00 --> 01:00:05

But that's the only way where you would wake up. And I've liken that to having an alarm.

01:00:06 --> 01:00:11

Some people are sensitive enough, the alarm could rest what sound once you're

01:00:12 --> 01:00:19

another person needs to three, and another person needs to be hit on the head to wake up. Right?

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

That's it. So it's not that Allah has certain needs this, but Allah has certain wants to purify you. Allah azza wa jal wants to take you to Jannah Allah wants to cleanse you, Allah wants to wake you up. Allah does not need anybody suffering. So Allah azza wa jal just simply if we see somebody who is suffering, what lost this, this, this this, understand Allah has that it has a lot of good in store for them. And they need to go through this to understand who He is and understand Allah's mercy and Rama because otherwise would be completely lost. So sometimes you say, and I know it's hard, but sometimes you say that hamdulillah for the trouble that some of us face because otherwise

01:01:00 --> 01:01:02

you wouldn't see us in the masjid. That's for sure.

01:01:11 --> 01:01:14

The etiquettes of phrasing fellow Muslims

01:01:27 --> 01:02:12

now, so it's asking what is the etiquette of praising other Muslims because you may see a person who's pious and you just immediately assume Allah must love them. So, can you make a praise or announcement like this, Allah loves so and so, or what are the etiquettes of raising a Muslim? You have to be careful when praising a Muslim especially to their face, because that could cause conceit and arrogance. Oh, I am that righteous I am that good. I am that pious. So they will take it in and it will ruin them. So if you can write you would avoid it. Unless there is a benefit in it. And when you praise you're not conclusive when you say it must be in Canada Hello ko Miani Madigan Mana Mana

01:02:12 --> 01:02:51

Hadith in Ghana hydrocone anima Allahu Allah Hola. Mohalla for the Aquila Cebu cat. Our cada wala has evil. He says I think him to be so and so if you're going to praise someone who say I think him to be this and that, I think and because you don't really, really fully know this person, and the inside and what is hidden and what is right. So you don't see his righteous and you don't see he? You see, I think that He is Allah knows him best. Right? To leave that space for what Allah knows, but we do not know. So if there is harm in praising the person face to face, you would refrain. Right and you wouldn't do it. So it does not harm them. Sometimes the prophets Allah, you send them

01:02:51 --> 01:03:05

praise people. But there's a reason for it. Right. So you do it, you know, with moderation and do it because there is a reason for it. And again, with the caveat of I think, and I suppose him to be so

01:03:13 --> 01:03:45

yeah, so if they're not present, right, and you're freezing them in general. So he is a person of tequila, you say I think so. And so if you're talking about something that is tangible, oh, he had memorized this. We have studied this. That's possible. That's tangible, but he is or he has a lot of knowledge. And you know that because you could maybe be measured, that's fine. But if you're talking about a person of Taqwa a person of Salah piety and this I think me I suppose yeah

01:03:47 --> 01:03:51

sure, let me quickly tackle some of these questions alone

01:03:54 --> 01:04:13

what are some signs of Allah's love to His servants? Well, that's what we were talking about in the book inshallah so you know, stay tuned because the we will encounter one sign after the other but one of the signs that we talked about today is what that the righteous love you right so that's one sign right and we will come to one after the other inshallah.

01:04:21 --> 01:05:00

Okay, so that's interesting question. So as a marketing team, our job is to spread the word of mouth by word of mouth, about our business to make as many people love us, does that mean that we can do that by doing it for Allah so Allah who will make people love us? I think that makes sense. So on a practical pragmatic side, you want to make your products good and you want to promote them right? In the best of ways that are appealing to people. And in that if you're doing honestly Allah azza wa jal loves that. But if you can incorporate like if you promote your product on the business side with honesty and with justice, then Allah as the dual love that but if you can all

01:05:00 --> 01:05:33

So incorporate an intention while you're doing this also for the sake of Allah, whether you know, a portion is going for sadaqa or you have somehow you could tie what you're doing to something pleasing to Allah xojo Then yes, then you have pleased Allah more, then when we understand the consequence of that is that you are be more beloved to Allah and Allah because of that will make people love you. So that also will spread your business and if you're doing it for Allah sake, then there is righteousness in that right? But make your your intention sincere.

01:05:40 --> 01:06:04

What are the bare minimum a person needs to do to know that he or she is right in the right in the right direction that Allah loves them. And that you know, the birds and the fish are making dua for them, what is the bare minimum, the bare minimum are the obligations and the prohibitions? That is the minimum. So if Allah commands you to do something, you do it. And if he forbids you to do something, you don't do it.

01:06:05 --> 01:06:48

And if you do that you're doing the bare minimum that Allah will by which Allah will love you. And by which Allah azza wa jal will have others love you and make dua for you. So that's the bare minimum, but you can graduate, you can elevate be elevated and by lbu, elevated is doing the recommended more of what Allah has obligated. So for just asking about the bare minimum, if you find an obligation, do it without hesitation and know what these obligations are. And if you find prohibitions, avoid them, without hesitation, and know what these prohibitions are in detail. And if you make a mistake, ask Allah immediately for forgiveness and compensate for the mistake that you

01:06:48 --> 01:07:12

have done with is too far with Toba and with sidecar and with salah. Right? It's like pay the price for the best thing that you have done, so that you're not going to be asked about it. When you meet Allah azza wa jal, you're very paid something for it. So do this and you miss an obligation. Do that obligation, as soon as you know that you have missed it and also add additional things to compensate for it.

01:07:13 --> 01:07:18

That's the bare minimum insha Allah and again, this thing will come be in the last.

01:07:19 --> 01:07:21

And I think we're done with questions.

01:07:24 --> 01:07:24


01:07:28 --> 01:07:40

Okay, last one. Science says if we are so used to good looking characters in the movies will have higher expectations and our spouses, leading to unhappy marriages, how not to watch romance from dramas.

01:07:42 --> 01:07:47

It's fake. So don't watch don't watch TV or romance or

01:07:48 --> 01:07:59

series movies that are romantic movies and series because they are unrealistic. They're all scripted, right? So I mean, I mean,

01:08:00 --> 01:08:45

they choose the prettiest of people, and the most implausible circumstances. And then the most romantic of love stories. And none of these things in that configuration could ever happen in life, you'll never meet a person who just looks at you and immediately falls in love with you and can't stop thinking about you. And then you think my spouse has to be like this, and no one ever in their life, not even the actor, or the writer had ever lived. This is just fantasy. They've never lived this. They're just writing about something that never existed. But they want people to feel that that is normal. So their relationship like basically, if you ever in doubt, look at the person who's

01:08:45 --> 01:08:50

acting and the person who wrote it and the person who directed and look how many people they married and divorced.

01:08:52 --> 01:08:56

And what type of relationships they have. They tell you that they're miserable.

01:08:57 --> 01:09:35

And you believe them. Right? And you make your life miserable because you believe them. So you have to understand that you're being duped into believing all of this. And they were you know you rejecting Allah's NEMA, which is you have a spouse and you have a child, you have a family but you're rejecting Allah's NEMA people get divorced because of this. People get divorced because of the romance they expect to see in their life based on what they see on TV. So it's completely unfounded. So understand that it's just complete fiction for money and they got their your their money from you. So you don't need anything else because you bought the ticket. Or you subscribed you

01:09:35 --> 01:09:44

watched that's what they want from you, and they'll keep supplying that so understand you're being duped and fooled and that you don't want to be a fool. So don't be a fool, right?

01:09:46 --> 01:09:46


01:09:47 --> 01:09:48

And shield

01:09:50 --> 01:09:59

insha Allah I think we should stop Inshallah, right? is not going to look at it. So next week in sha Allah after maghrib okay Baraka lofi Subhanallah longer him the shadow

01:10:00 --> 01:10:01

Let your day dentist suffer
