Salam Alaikum

00:00:07 --> 00:00:40

having the last hurrah salam ala Rasulillah so I'm obviously noticing that with the schedule me going right after shift command isn't really the best idea. People are like check them I just came back on stage. You know, she had come out when, when I give hautbois we're in the same mess today in Clearlake in Houston. And Chef Kumar will be wearing, you know, he wears colors, mashallah he pulls off bright yellow, bright purple, and I just wear black and white. But she'll come out, we'll give a football. And then after the salon is over, people will walk up to me and be like, he's not gonna say that was a wonderful.

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

That was wonderful. He's not gonna say it and I'm like, I'm wearing white and he's wearing bright purple. And so we have a joke that one day inshallah chef come out, we'll give the first football and then I'll pop out from the second football from the member. And we'll see if people can do that. Sharla so between me guna and Chef command, I'm sure a lot of people are confused all day.

00:01:02 --> 00:01:11

I want to talk about love, love of Allah Subhana Allah data. Am I getting feedback? Are you guys hearing me okay? Okay, good. Excellent.

00:01:13 --> 00:01:14


00:01:16 --> 00:01:21

love of Allah subhanaw taala, you guys know, is an incredible acts of worship.

00:01:22 --> 00:01:27

When you love for the sake of Allah, it is an incredible act of worship.

00:01:30 --> 00:01:33

When you love for the sake of Allah, what do you get?

00:01:35 --> 00:01:35


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


00:01:39 --> 00:01:42

You get Egypt Okay, that's an easy one. What else do you get as far as reward?

00:01:43 --> 00:01:44

You get love back.

00:01:46 --> 00:02:19

You get shade on the day of judgment on the day where there is no shade except for lush shade. Yes, you get reward igfoa reward. But you get shade on the Day of Judgment. The province of Elijah sent him said of the seven categories of people who are in the shade of Allah on the day where there is no shade except for his shade is two people who loved each other for the sake of Allah they gathered on that and they separated for that you get a member of light on the day of judgment was through Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah send them says that there will be people who will be sitting on pulpits of light on the day of judgment. And they will be envied by the prophets and the martyrs.

00:02:19 --> 00:02:37

Who are these people, yada sunnah Allah, who will be envied by the prophets and the martyrs. And he said to people, he loved each other for the sake of Allah to people who love each other for the sake of Allah, or those who love each other for the sake of Allah. And so the question that I have for you, is, why does love for the sake of Allah Garner this huge reward?

00:02:39 --> 00:02:42

Why is it so beloved to Allah subhanho data,

00:02:43 --> 00:03:27

every single one of us, we place ourselves at the center of the universe, it's natural, human instinct, I am the most important person in the universe. And you feel like you are the most important person in the universe. And we naturally love people based on how closely they orbit around us. And so I love my parents very much. I love my siblings very much. I love my teachers very much. I love my friends very much. I love people based on how closely they orbit around me. But I may not love your parents very much. I mean, I love your teachers, I may not love your friends, and you may not love mine. Because all of us have ourselves at the center of our universe. But when you

00:03:27 --> 00:03:29

love for the sake of Allah,

00:03:30 --> 00:03:32

you remove yourself from being at the center.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:41

And you love a person not because of how closely they orbit around you, but you love them because of how closely they orbit around who

00:03:42 --> 00:04:22

Allah subhana data. And that is very hard to do, to completely remove yourself, and to say, I love that sister, not because of anything she's ever done for me, she's never done anything for me. But I love her so much. Because she she's been teaching Quran in the community for such a long time. I love that brother so much, because he's always in the first row at the masjid. He's always calling the man in the masjid. I love that person, not because of me, but because of Allah. And when a person is able to do that, well that is an act of worship, that is so so valuable to ALLAH SubhanA data. And so what I want to share with you here at Java and this session is a number of things that

00:04:22 --> 00:04:31

we can do to increase our love for each other for the sake of Allah. I want you to think about everything you've done for Jana.

00:04:32 --> 00:04:33

You know,

00:04:34 --> 00:04:42

I was flying to Calgary last night and it was 9:30pm and I'm looking out the window and the sun is still out.

00:04:43 --> 00:04:44

It was crazy.

00:04:46 --> 00:04:47

How do you guys do Ramadan here?

00:04:49 --> 00:04:54

What time is the sunset? In the summertime 1030 1130

00:04:56 --> 00:04:57

and 5g it is what time

00:04:59 --> 00:05:00


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

So you guys are doing like the head, shoulders, knees and toes stairway, knocking it out and 20 minutes to code everything. It's just expressed everything right? And you fast these long days. Why do you do it? You do it for agenda. Look at all of the Ramadan's you fasted, look at all of the Salawat you've attended. Look at all the Hotbird gym as that you've listened in on, look at all of the acts of the sadaqa that you've given, you know, one brother, he was telling us that when he accepted Islam,

00:05:28 --> 00:05:31

the craziest thing for him was giving sadaqa

00:05:32 --> 00:06:09

he was like, I'm parting with my money that I earn. For Allah subhana died and I'm giving it to this person. He was like, Man, this must be the truth. Because only only the true Deen can make me do that give sadaqa I look at how much money the Muslim community is the most generous every Oman and outside of Ramadan continues to give and give and give and give how much money have you given in your life and you've done it all for Ghana and yet Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam he says laddered Kalugin Anahata Tuchman. He says this, Jana, that you've done so much for you won't enter it until you believe what Allah told me you know what that have and you will not believe until you

00:06:09 --> 00:06:10

love one another.

00:06:11 --> 00:06:32

I won't enter Jannah until I believe and I will not believe until I love this community here. I love my brothers and sisters in Islam. And so what are some things that we can do quickly Inshallah, that that will increase our love for each other number one, the first is to think of people with their best attributes

00:06:33 --> 00:06:36

to notice the best attributes and people.

00:06:37 --> 00:06:44

If when you look at me, you're able to notice everything that's wrong, becomes very easy for you to dislike anybody.

00:06:47 --> 00:07:15

But then if you look at someone and you look and you see everything that is positive in a person, then it becomes very easy for you to love them. Some people when they walk into a masjid, the most beautiful masjid, they will notice what is wrong with that miss you they will notice the shoes that are off the rack they will notice the parking situation they will notice they won't notice the hundreds of people who have gathered to pray and worship Allah subhanaw taala they won't notice all of the smiles they won't notice the cleanliness they won't notice any of these things.

00:07:16 --> 00:07:51

It becomes very easy for you to dislike people then it becomes very easy for you to dislike people in your own relationships and sort of so loss of Allah they send him gives us the advice and he says Leia for Mina either Carrie Hi mean hello hello Corradi Amina aka Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says with regards to a husband and wife and this is such an important Hadith for husbands and wives both to know Rasulullah sallallahu has said them says no believing man ever hates a believing woman. Why? Because if there's one quality that he dislikes, guess what? There's another quality that he likes. There's always something positive to see and people if you decide to look for it, which of these two

00:07:51 --> 00:08:00

do you think Rasulullah sallallahu de Sena Miss Do you think that he's the one who notices what is wrong with people or do you think that he's the one who notices what's beautiful and people 100%

00:08:02 --> 00:08:42

And so when companion for example is brought todo sobre la silla light SLM, yet drank alcohol, the prophets of Allah they said him had him punished. And then he came another time also had drank alcohol or su masala light and send them out and punish a third time even those OB were annoyed by now. And they said, Zack Allah, may Allah subhanaw taala humiliate you how much you keep coming back to this action? And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said learn to initiate Ana Allah He come in now you have Allah wa Sula do not assist shaytaan against your brother. Why? Because he loves Allah and His messenger. This man is being brought in an intoxicated frame and yet Rasulullah

00:08:42 --> 00:09:01

sallallahu. s&m is able to see through that frame, a heart that beats with love for Allah and His messenger. Do you notice what is good in people? Do you notice what is good in your family? You notice when Allah Allah Allah Allah has sent them the fact that we have the virtues of the companions, that we read these chapters in the books of Hadith, the virtue of Ramadan, the virtue of a weapon, the virtue of wounds, that actually

00:09:03 --> 00:09:37

it is because the prophets of Allah, they send up notices the good qualities in his companions. Number one, he notices them, and number two, he communicates them and so he tells a woman said, actually that you've been given a flute like the flutes of David, and he tells Abu Abdullah he must prove that whoever wants to hear the Quran like it was freshly revealed and let him listen to the resuscitation of Ivanova province. The whole idea send them is constantly noticing and he's constantly communicating. So number one, the first is to look for what is good. I guarantee you that if you look for what is good in your family, you will find it if you look for what is good in your

00:09:37 --> 00:09:38

community, you will find it

00:09:39 --> 00:09:42

and number two is to communicate love.

00:09:43 --> 00:09:47

Communicate love Rasulullah Salah Leida Sedna

00:09:48 --> 00:09:52

came from the harshest of climates.

00:09:53 --> 00:09:59

He came from a place where love as an emotion was buried deep in the sand

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

It was never allowed to bubble to the surface. These were people who practiced or had the practice of female infanticide

00:10:11 --> 00:10:31

and also lost the lightness and then emerges from that community, that society and he teaches us to communicate love, both verbally and physically. Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi salam in that community that practice female infanticide or pseudo la sala light SLM would come in Medina carrying the daughter of his daughter.

00:10:32 --> 00:11:09

That girl who is normally hidden in society, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, What either Bushido have been on one language movements, what didn't work of him. Yeah, it's a wild I mean, I'll call me Minsu Mr. Boucher, Robbie, I am siku, Allah who didn't I mean, I just tore up and I sat on my kimono, Allah subhanaw taala says I wouldn't one of them is given the tidings that glad tidings of a girl. Their face darkens. And they are upset yet so while I'm in a home they're hiding from the people, due to the news that they receive the news that they receive it they had a girl and then they make a decision. Do they hide her in the sand? Or do they raise her in humiliation? What an

00:11:09 --> 00:11:46

evil decision they make Allah Subhana Allah says, and the province of Elijah send them now comes leading the Salah, ferrying mama Binti, Xena, the daughter of his daughter, his daughter, twice Salah Aeneas, and he's carrying her in the Salah. This is an obligatory salah, and when he goes into sujood, he places her on the ground. And when he gets up for the second block, I was shooting last summer, like I said, and picks her back up. Not discontinuing that love. You could have left her there we all leave our kids there as long as they're quiet and happy up. But Rasulullah sallallahu SLM, picks her back up, communicating love to the Sahaba communicating love to his daughter. And

00:11:46 --> 00:11:50

when Rasulullah sallallahu SLM tells the Companions, he says that if

00:11:51 --> 00:11:55

you love your brother, you should tell them. If you love your brother, you should tell them.

00:11:57 --> 00:12:03

And so your homework from this session today is that you communicate love to somebody that you love.

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

But you might come back to me and say hold on a second, the way that we say I love you in our family is you're an alien.

00:12:13 --> 00:12:20

That's the way that we say I love you. Or I say you are looking less ugly today than normal.

00:12:21 --> 00:12:59

That's the way that we communicate. But anytime you have a culture you hear this every week in the gym, I hope but most likely will hate already had the Mohamed salah is the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad. And so anytime my family culture, or my style or my it goes against the guidance of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam then take that beautiful tradition, take that culture, take that and throw it out the window and submit to the guidance of Rasulullah cellulitis and in the province of Elijah syndrome was able to transform the society of the companions to being a society that communicated love, can we not communicate love to the people that we love. And so your homework

00:12:59 --> 00:13:21

is to tell somebody I want you to do this is to tell somebody that you love that you love them. And if your tongue is going to start stutter, and your your your heart is going to palpitate and you're going to trip over your feet, then Elijah died, it made it easier for you send them a text message. Send them a text message, but communicate that love. Communicate that love but you know what?

00:13:22 --> 00:13:24

I want you to pay attention to something.

00:13:26 --> 00:13:32

There's a beautiful, beautiful answer that was given by Chef I did Bernie when he was asked the question by one of his students.

00:13:33 --> 00:13:40

He said his students at chef if you love someone for the sake of Allah, should you tell them? And he said yes.

00:13:41 --> 00:14:09

That's the Hadith. Absolutely. But then he said, but loving someone for the sake of Allah has a price. Do you know what the price of loving for the sake of Allah is? So different people started giving different answers. One person said, the the price of loving for the sake of Allah is that you love for your brother, what you love for yourself. He said no, that's the effect of love. But it's not the price. And different people started giving different answers until finally, one person recited slaughterhouse.

00:14:11 --> 00:14:12

And he said that's it.

00:14:13 --> 00:14:30

When asked by time in an internal affairs office, rarely human beings are in a loss in the medina Armineh except those who believe one little slide hat and do righteous deeds, what a while so been happy, what also be sub and they enjoy each other to truth, and they enjoy each other to patients. He says that's the price of love.

00:14:32 --> 00:14:41

How is that the price of love? He says because when you truly love someone, you will be more constant in advising them than the presence of their own shadow.

00:14:43 --> 00:14:54

And so if you were to ask anybody and say, Who are the people who are on your back the most who are the people who are always advising you the most who are the people there I say who are nagging you the most Who are they tell me

00:14:56 --> 00:14:56

your parents?

00:14:58 --> 00:14:59

Why is it your

00:15:00 --> 00:15:04

Parents, because they are the ones who are most willing to pay the price of love

00:15:06 --> 00:15:46

your friends, you're like, I don't get it. My parents are so upset with me. They don't believe that I should major in underwater basket weaving, they don't think that that's a good career option for me. And your friend is like, yeah, bro, you should follow your heart, man. See, my friends all get me. They all understand me. I don't get why my parents don't get it. Your parents don't get it is because they're not going to lie to you like your friends will. Your friends, your parents are truly invested in you truly sincere to you. And because they are so sincere to you, they are willing to pay the price of love and the price of love is that you're going to be upset with them. You're going

00:15:46 --> 00:15:49

to be bothered by them. You're going to be annoyed by them you're going to be flustered by them

00:15:51 --> 00:15:53

but they're willing to pay that price.

00:15:55 --> 00:15:58

What our Soviet happy what our soldiers suck, they're going to enjoin you to truth.

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

And so that our second is to communicate love, communicate love. Our third is to continue the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam says in the Hadith that I quote at the beginning, he says, you will not enter Jannah until you believe and you will not believe until you love one another Alpha Allah I do. Look, I'm Ira che in either of ultimo, who to have up to as you said, I'm again, he says, Shall I not tell you something that if you do it, you will love one another? What is it? He says spread this alarm amongst each other.

00:16:32 --> 00:16:33

If you spread this around,

00:16:35 --> 00:16:36

you spread love.

00:16:38 --> 00:16:41

You know, something that I was very happy to see today.

00:16:42 --> 00:16:50

That hamdulillah is at this conference, from what I saw from my interactions with people is that people were very generous with their setups.

00:16:51 --> 00:17:09

And that is a beautiful thing to see. When you go to the masjid, are people generous with their setups. When you see a Muslim spread salaam as the province of a wider subset to who you know, and who you don't know that you make that something that is a expression of love.

00:17:10 --> 00:17:21

I have two quick stories that I'll share. The first time I went to Chicago, I went in the summertime. And the summertime of Chicago is as beautiful as any place.

00:17:23 --> 00:17:29

And we were walking and I was with a friend who was non Muslim. We were walking down. I think it was Michigan Avenue. It's a really, really long street.

00:17:30 --> 00:18:01

And we were walking, you know, one of those like summertime walks it was ours. And then my friend who's from Chicago says, you know where you're at right now. When I said no, say you're in the Southside of Chicago, I wasn't allowed what southside of Chicago southside of Chicago is notorious dangerous. And so immediately I've got like situational awareness. Now I'm aware of what's what's around me. And as if on cue, a guy starts walking towards us. And he's not walking in our direction. He's walking towards us. And so he starts walking up to me.

00:18:02 --> 00:18:06

And then as he greets me, he says, I sit down with a camera.

00:18:08 --> 00:18:14

And as soon as he said that, everything, as far as awareness that was in my heart became

00:18:16 --> 00:18:28

so beautiful greeting, like it's a it's an amazing greeting this tsunami of hours. It's a gift from Allah Subhana. Allah, cinematic immediately. And then he started talking to me for a couple of minutes. And then he left.

00:18:29 --> 00:18:32

And then we continue walking. And then from across the street.

00:18:34 --> 00:18:42

There's a store, there was a man who filled the entire store, his size was huge. And he goes, I set off on a call.

00:18:43 --> 00:19:01

And I'm like, I'm gonna set up and he starts walking over across the street comes right up to me. He's so happy to see a Muslim. He's like, I just got to Chicago a couple of days ago, myself, this this, this just starts talking to me for a few minutes. And then he leaves. And then my runs looking at me like, oh, you know, more people here than I do. Like, welcome to Southside brother.

00:19:03 --> 00:19:05

No, but I was like, I was like,

00:19:07 --> 00:19:48

I was like, Well, this is we're Muslim. This is the way that we are. And I wish that what I had said was completely true. It's not the way that we are. It's the way that we're supposed to be. It's the way that we're supposed to be another time another place. I'm traveling with my my mother. And I had taken her to a beautiful message that millions of dollars had been spent on and it was a beautifully designed mystery, beautifully designed. You know, she's lived in New York for maybe 30 years. And in New York sister sections are an afterthought. So basement it's it's a room in an apartment somewhere. It's just there's there's nothing there. So when she's able to see these new massage kits

00:19:48 --> 00:20:00

that have sisters prayer spaces that are actually designed for sisters, it was she's walking around, she's like this is the way Maasai they're supposed to be. So I'm like we're not

00:20:00 --> 00:20:11

No, don't worry, there's still a lot to see. So we separate to pray, Lord, I go into the Muslim I pray to her, and then I come back out. And then I see my mom coming back out. And she looks like a balloon that was deflated.

00:20:13 --> 00:20:27

Like I see it on her face. And I was like, so can I show you the rest? And she's like, No, let's just go. said why she's lackluster school. So what happened? She said, You know, I walked into the masala. And there were some lady sitting there, and I walked up to them, and I said, Sit on my leg, and they didn't respond to me.

00:20:28 --> 00:20:38

And then I saw another group of women somewhere else. And I said to somebody come to me, since that already come to them, and then respond to me. So let's just go.

00:20:39 --> 00:20:47

And I was thinking myself, Allahu Akbar, like this Masjid this community that had spent millions of dollars building this mess foods. At the end of the day.

00:20:49 --> 00:20:50

If there's no warmth,

00:20:52 --> 00:20:53

people aren't going to want to stay.

00:20:54 --> 00:20:56

People aren't going to want to go.

00:20:57 --> 00:21:08

The presidents of Salem can make the Southside of Chicago feel like home. And he can make the most beautiful houses, its absence can make them the most beautiful houses of worship, feel empty and cold.

00:21:09 --> 00:21:25

And so in your community, make sure that you don't just say salaam to the people that you recognize, don't just scan the room and look for your friends. Besides said to the people that you know, and the people that you don't know, even at this conference, even at this conference, and I want to show you something I want to actually tell you something else.

00:21:27 --> 00:21:29

in Calgary, general

00:21:30 --> 00:21:37

culture of the City of Calgary do people say Hello, good morning. How are you? Good people say these things. Canadians do they say that? Yes.

00:21:38 --> 00:21:42

Okay, so then the question is, do you say that

00:21:47 --> 00:21:48


00:21:50 --> 00:22:15

the province of allied SNM says in the map or a 3d will tell me macadam hola hola. I was only sent to perfect your character. So I lived in New York most of my life. And then I moved to Houston, Texas, and Houston, Texas. In New York. Nobody makes eye contact. Nobody says hello, nobody does anything. You just ignore each other as best as possible as you're living about your lives. When I moved to Houston, everybody says Hi, good morning. Hello. And they're waiting for you to respond.

00:22:17 --> 00:22:30

And so I started absorbing that. And I started saying, Hi, good morning, hello, and all of that type of stuff. And then when I would go back to New York, I'd be walking around but like, Hi, good morning. I love when people don't ignore me. I'm like, Man, I'm starting to look like a tourist out here.

00:22:31 --> 00:22:36

But then I asked myself the question is saying Hi, good morning. Hello. Is it good character? Yes or no?

00:22:37 --> 00:23:12

Okay, so if it is good character, then as a Muslim community, we have to be culture creators and not just culture consumers. You know, what a culture consumers a culture consumer just adapts to whatever's around them. If people here are nice that I'm nice that people here ignore you, then I'm going to ignore everybody else. I'm like, No, we should add value to every community that we're in, everywhere. Everywhere. In the Muslim world that non Muslims traveled to what do they come back raving about? It doesn't matter whether they go to West Africa, whether they go to North Africa, whether they go to the Arabian Peninsula, whether they go to Eastern Europe, subcontinent, Southeast

00:23:12 --> 00:23:18

Asia, anywhere they go in the Muslim world, what is the one thing that everybody comes back raving about? Tell me

00:23:19 --> 00:23:28

you guys know it hospitality, cut off generosity, they will feed you and feed you and feed you. My question for you is in Calgary. Is that what Muslims are known for?

00:23:29 --> 00:23:30

And the question is, why not?

00:23:33 --> 00:23:53

This is our culture, right? This is a shoe set out to mo Thomas or have some newbie native and Macedonia. This is our culture, we have it. But are we culture creators? Or are we simply culture consumers? Imagine if what people knew about Muslims is you can say whatever you want about Muslims, but you're not going to be able to pay going to dinner with one of them.

00:23:54 --> 00:24:14

So when I went to New York one time, I was like, You know what? saying good morning, and all of that it's good character, I am not going to shut away from what is good character. I'm going to turn up the volume. So I realize I'm just going to make eye contact a lot of people, sometimes they don't know that you said good morning to them. People have air pods in they don't.

00:24:16 --> 00:24:45

They don't realize that you're talking to them. Sometimes you yourself speak with a very low tone, and so they don't hear you properly. So you know what, I'm going to turn up the volume. I'm going to say Hi, good morning. I'm going to make eye contact, I'm going to smile. And I'm just not going to do it. We're going to do it to everybody, except for women, obviously between the ages of 15 and 15. Because I didn't want to show up on any YouTube videos of like, you know me, so I don't want it to be taken the wrong way. So sorry, sisters, women, I'm not going to do it but everybody else

00:24:47 --> 00:24:51

in New York. I want to tell you over an entire weekend.

00:24:52 --> 00:24:57

Every single person that I said good morning to they all responded. Every single one.

00:24:58 --> 00:24:59

Except for one guy he was a jerk.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:15

But everybody else, everybody else. And I went all over. And guess what, it became an opportunity for conversation because that year was the first year that eat was part of the public school system. And so people were asking me, what's this eat holiday what's going on?

00:25:16 --> 00:25:40

And it became an opportunity to for conversation. My point is very simple, is that when we're talking about these beautiful qualities that make you loved, and make you love others, they are also perfectly applicable to the non Muslim community around you. And so spreading Saddam, spreading Saddam and spreading good morning and all of that type of stuff. And then number four, number four, is to

00:25:41 --> 00:25:42


00:25:43 --> 00:25:44


00:25:45 --> 00:25:49

She's gonna show up soon. He says Your teeth are not our sisters. You can smile.

00:25:50 --> 00:25:55

When you smile, a smile that communicates love. And I know that there are a lot of, you know,

00:25:56 --> 00:26:31

a lot of people who don't smile, got a lot of tough guys here. There's nobody who's tougher than hot. Even nobody had even read the safe. Allahu Massoud. He is the unsheath sort of Allah never lost the battle. He is the toughest of the tough. And yet he tells us the story of when he accepted his snap. And he says that when he arrived in Medina, his brother who was already Muslim told him rasool Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah has sent them has heard of your arrival. He's overjoyed, and he's waiting for you. Like you gotta go right now. And so however the line he goes, and he sees from a distance Rasulullah Salallahu Salam, and he says further Maharani member estaba some of you achieve when

00:26:31 --> 00:27:15

Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam saw me from a distance. He smiled at me, for Allah He loved me as a testament Hatao of today in a day by Allah, his smile was unbroken. Until I stood in front of him. I'm walking, and he's smiling. I'm getting closer and he smiled he just kept beaming at me solid idea. And hydrogen no lead. remembers that as a a core memory of the moment that he accepted Islam, the smile of Rasulullah cellulitis and when you smile at a person, a smile that communicates warmth and acceptance and welcoming, then you can understand how the province of Elijah is set him said to have a similar configuration ethic. Sadaqa that is smile that that you cast in the face of your

00:27:15 --> 00:27:21

brother is a charity that you can this is a small pocket that you get when you smile at a person or whatever. I don't like my smile.

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

Okay, okay. Even if you don't like your smile, other people like your smile, you're not smiling for yourself, you're smiling for them.

00:27:30 --> 00:27:31

Number five,

00:27:33 --> 00:27:55

is to bring happiness to each other Rasulullah sallallahu, Sydenham was asked many times by the Companions, a huge family I have Google Allah, what actions most beloved to Allah and the Rasulullah sallallahu de Sena would give different answers on different occasions. But on one occasion, when he was asked this he simply said sudo rune to

00:27:57 --> 00:28:05

happiness that you bring to a Muslim, my Arabic grammar people know that surah is Nicola and Muslim is Nicola which means any happiness that you bring to any Muslim.

00:28:06 --> 00:28:22

Any happiness that you bring to any Muslim is the most beloved action to Allah subhanaw taala and he continues to demonstrate he says, oh, tuna fish and who quote button Oh talk the man who Deignan Alltop Rodin, who and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam says that you remove from them a hardship,

00:28:24 --> 00:28:25

any hardship that you remove it from them

00:28:27 --> 00:28:31

or tuck the man who day in and or you relieve them of any debt?

00:28:33 --> 00:28:36

Or tattled on who and that you repel from them some hunger?

00:28:38 --> 00:28:54

And so what is the happiness that you can bring to a Muslim? You know, for some, it can be as simple as right now we're in graduation season. Every time you log online you're seeing a picture of another person graduating don't just scroll through and not comment Don't you read your comments when people

00:28:55 --> 00:28:58

when when you're announcing something And doesn't that bring happiness to you?

00:29:01 --> 00:29:15

I had a beautiful beautiful brother that I love very much anymore love his entire Facebook page. And this person was so loved by everybody. His entire Facebook page was him just celebrating people.

00:29:17 --> 00:29:31

Every day it was SO and SO came back from a journey hamdulillah ceramah so and so is traveling May Allah Subhana Allah give them safe passage. So and So graduated this soccer team one congratulations it a mom, you know continue to grow at

00:29:33 --> 00:29:59

all he did was celebrate people and people loved him so much because of it. And so happiness and happiness. Somebody is moving that you help them move. Somebody needs assistance with homework, you help them with their homework any any relief or assistance that you can bring. And the Sahaba of the Allah whom they learned this from the province of Elijah send them because the province is on the line and salam was a master at this. And so I give you two quick examples. Well so Allah light is set up, I have to live in the middle of the Allah and when he says

00:30:01 --> 00:30:13

Alemany Rasulullah Saba Elijah is setting them at the shadow of blindness route, companion of the Prophet he his version of the Tisha which is one of the versions that we learned. And he said the province of Allah they said I'm taught me that the childhood

00:30:14 --> 00:30:19

Caffee be in a cafe. My plan was between his two pumps.

00:30:20 --> 00:30:41

We know that so much of communication is nonverbal, of the live news odor of the Allah and who he before he even tells us what he learned from the province of Allah if Allah what He wants us to know is how the Prophet saw the light is said and taught it. The province of Elijah Selim was holding his hand in between his two palms, teaching him at the here to the law was the law to play but

00:30:42 --> 00:31:01

of the liveness Oh, this feeling that love from Rasulullah sallallahu escena his tongue is communicating information and knowledge, but his palms and his body is communicating love, happiness that you bring. And the Sahaba learned this from Rasulullah Salallahu incident so on one occasion, was sort of lost the light asylums out at night with Abu Bakr and Omar.

00:31:02 --> 00:31:21

And they were his constant deputies. They were his constant advisors. And so one night they're out and then they're walking back to the masjid because the prophets Allah, Allah, they send them his walking home, and they walk him back to the masjid because the house of worship is inside. It's not inside, but it opens up into the message. So he has to go into the messenger to walk into his house.

00:31:22 --> 00:31:51

And so when they walk in the message, they see that the people who lived in the message animals so far that some of them were already awake, and they were praying and clear Hamelin, and one of those was Abdullah he misspoke, and I'm delighted Mr. Root is reciting the Quran and he's reciting his so beautifully Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi. Salam is at a distance behind and he's listening. And he's enjoying alkalizer citation. And then he looks at Oklahoma and he says, Whoever Have you wants to hear the Quran like it was freshly revealed. Let him listen to their citation of Abdullah administer, Eben OMA out.

00:31:53 --> 00:32:13

And then Abdullah admits that he doesn't know what's happening. He's making the app and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is in the back and he's saying, quote, if you're smart, call you smart. Say it will be heard say it will be accepted, say it will be accepted as if he's saying I mean. And then he goes into his house. The next morning Ramana Mahatama wakes up and he's on a mission. He's looking for him to live in misery.

00:32:14 --> 00:32:24

And when he finds out the light tells him, I just want to let you know that last night. We were the province of Elijah Sydenham, and he walked into the masjid and you were reciting, and it was a beautiful re citation. And and

00:32:26 --> 00:32:27

I just wanted to let you know.

00:32:29 --> 00:32:33

And then of the live news of the line, he says, Zach, Allah said, I heard this already, though.

00:32:34 --> 00:32:38

I heard this already. It's the first thing in the morning, who do you hear from Abu Bakr?

00:32:41 --> 00:33:09

Omar is like, I'm never going to be able to be a book in anything. I'm never going to be able to be a book in any good in any good he says, but the question that I have for you was what was this great good, that Ramana Mahatama the line was seeking what is the big deal? What is this great act of worship. It is simply happiness, that we're not believers, here's this is going to become happy. So don't belittle happiness that you can bring to a believer. And so to conclude are five things number one, is to

00:33:11 --> 00:33:30

I don't even remember what it was Hold on. Our first is to look at people with their positive traits. Number two is to communicate love. Number three is to spread this around number four is to smile. And number five is to bring happiness to people. And

00:33:31 --> 00:33:34

as far as loving Allah as though he did himself

00:33:36 --> 00:33:39

that's loving for the sake of Allah as far as loving Allah himself. I just want to share this one point.

00:33:41 --> 00:33:45

We love naturally for many reasons. We love naturally for many reasons.

00:33:47 --> 00:33:51

Tell me some of the reasons why we love Why do we love people or places and things Tom?

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

Yes, because of because of favorites. Very good. What else?

00:34:00 --> 00:34:02

Why do you why do you love Calgary so much? Tell me

00:34:05 --> 00:34:06

I was expecting an answer. I'm sorry.

00:34:08 --> 00:34:10

Okay, when people say BAM what's in Banff?

00:34:12 --> 00:34:16

Beauty we love because of beauty. Absolutely. Yes. What else?

00:34:17 --> 00:34:18

Yes, sir.

00:34:19 --> 00:34:20

This Yeah, it's okay.

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

Okay, community quality is very good. So friendships, okay, so, yes.

00:34:29 --> 00:34:50

Because you're from there. Okay. So, we love naturally for a number of reasons. Number one, we love because of physical beauty. We love beautiful people. That's why we all love bounnam We love beautiful places. We love BAMF we love Vancouver we love we love beauty, okay. We love beautiful

00:34:51 --> 00:34:59

design, architecture. We love we love physical beauty. And if a person loves because of physical beauty, I want you to know

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


00:35:01 --> 00:35:06

that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is LGBT himself. He is the creator of beauty.

00:35:07 --> 00:35:16

And in Jannah, with all of the delights that Jana has, there is no delight, there's going to be greater than looking at LGBT.

00:35:17 --> 00:35:38

And if you love because of beautiful qualities, we love beautiful qualities. We love people, I might have a friend who's not physically beautiful, but I love them because they're trustworthy, and they're honest, and they're caring, and they're sincere. I might have a car that's not physically beautiful, but I love my car because it gives me great gas mileage, and it's never broken down on me, and it's dependable.

00:35:39 --> 00:35:50

And so if we love because of beautiful qualities, then Allah subhana data is a man and he's a Rahim and he's an Jabbar and he's alcohol and his men and his disease and he's an attorney. And he said, Hakeem,

00:35:51 --> 00:35:58

Allah subhanaw. Taala is the one who has the most beautiful names and attributes. And if you love because of what

00:35:59 --> 00:36:01

the facilitation of what we love,

00:36:03 --> 00:36:23

we love sometimes we love not because we love beautiful qualities, but we love the facilitation of what we love. So for example, if I love money, I'm going to love somebody who gets me a lot of money. I don't trust them at all. But I love what they bring me a lot of our love for entertainers is like people are like, I love this comedian, would you trust them with their kids? They're like, Absolutely not.

00:36:24 --> 00:37:00

But they make me laugh, and I love to laugh. They entertain me and I love to be entertained. I don't like their attributes at all. I don't like their qualities. I actually think they're very lonely, but I still love them. Why because I love what they facilitate. And if a person loves because of what is facilitated for them that they love, then realize that Allah Subhana Allah is the One who facilitates for you every blessing that you've ever experienced, every heartbeat, every breath, every risk that she had not mentioned earlier, all of these different manifestations of risk. Allah Subhana Allah is the One facilitating that one. So there is no one who's more deserving of your love

00:37:01 --> 00:37:29

than Allah subhanaw taala and so we love for the sake of Allah, and the one who's most deserving of our love was Allah Subhana Allah Allah Himself. And before I forget, the last thing that I want to invite you to, is I want to invite you to an event that we're having here in Milan of is hosting here in a couple of weeks in Charlotte and in Calgary. We're very excited to be having an event in Calgary again, and that's biostat Yes, mean Mujahid inshallah to Allah and it's going it's called Healing to emptiness. It's a short event.
