Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Today inshallah Horta, Allah, I want to go through three chapters from riobel sila when the lecture is entitled today, loving for the sake of Allah, and signs of His love. Signs of Allah subhanahu Wata al Islam, so we'll be looking at the virtue and the merit and what Islam has to say about loving others purely and utterly for the sake of Allah, not for the sake of them being your relative or for the sake of any sort of material gain but purely that we love one another for the sake of Allah.
So this is the first part of my presentation. The second part of my presentation is shallow tyla is going to be about the signs, what signs are there, that Allah azza wa jal loves a person, what are the telltale signs how do how can you and I know that Allah azza wa jal loves us.
For example, also, how do we know that Allah subhana wa Taala is accepting our deeds? Many people, they often ask this question how do I know if Allah loves me? How do I know if Allah is accepting my good deeds? How do I know that Allah azza wa jal has accepted my fasting in the month of Ramadan? So in Sharla, 111 there are signs just as everything has science, and we'll go through those signs inshallah who Tyler in a few moments in sha Allah, now remember now we rahima hula hoops Allah, the chapter is entitled babble foot lil foot be filler, bamboo foot will be filler, when has the alayhi wa ala rajguru men Manya Haku and who you have boom as a akula who either alemayehu so what he's in
title of this chapter is the excellence in the etiquette of sincere love for the sake of Allah azza wa jal and actually informing people that you love them for the sake of Allah azza wa jal and what the response should be when somebody says to you that she loved them for the sake of Allah as our child.
Now the first Hadees is a really beautiful Hadith it's actually let me rephrase that it is a very sweet Heidi is first Heidi, the mo now we have a hymn of Allahu taala has included that is originally found in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim is the hadith of ns even Malik, probably a loved one who were
the Hardiman Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and and is the one who served the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam for 10 years. Now, Anna's Fabiola, one who reports that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
he said, Salah soon man couldn't fee he would be hidden the Halawa. Tell a man that there are three qualities, three qualities whoever has them will taste the sweetness of he man Hello, what will amen Hello our sweetness
and then the first one that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and he akuna Allahu wa rasuluh who had the alaihe mercy well Huma, that you love Allah and His Messenger, in other words, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam more than anything else.
What and you hit belmondo Allah you hit boohoo in lead in lead, that you love a person for no other reason but for the sake of Allah, that you love somebody for the sake of Allah.
Well, and yet Cora has an older field called free bad and an author who love human can Marissa Cora who and you new cadets have in
and to hate and to detest to or abort returning to innocence.
agility, this belief
after Allah has saved him from it, as he would hate to be thrown into the hellfire. So in this hadith we learn
about the love of Allah azza wa jal are loving for the sake of Allah azza wa jal is one of the sweet one of the ways of attaining the Halla what will even
when you love somebody for the sake of Allah azza wa jal so the first one that the Prophet salallahu alaihe was sending them he said, to love Allah and His Messenger more than anything else. as Muslims, we are mandated to love Eliza which are first, followed by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, more than anything else more than yourself.
And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in another Hadith
he said, la you know, hadoken had akuna la him in Where did he Well, well, while he he went nursey I mean, that none of you are true believers, and to I am, and to that, you love Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more than your parents, more than your children more than all of mankind. So love of Allah azza wa jal comes first, then loving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now when we say that we love Allah and love Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that means we are fulfilling. We are fulfilling the commands of Allah azza wa jal, but that love is not just mere lip service. It's not just about moving your tongue and saying that you love Allah azza wa jal, but you really
make sacrifices for the sake of Allah azza wa jal that you start off with your obligations,
that you are fulfilling your five pillars of Islam Shahada, onsala, and the cat and so more Ramadan and had to wait.
So this is a sign that you love Allah azza wa jal
now, loving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again, what does that mean? It means following his son, following his way, following his mannerisms. So this is what that means. The second one, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
that he mentioned
was to love a person only for the sake of Allah. When you love somebody for the sake of Allah, you will taste the sweetness that Eman has to offer that faith has to offer.
And so we need to get into the habit of loving others, loving your Muslim Brethren, for the sake of Allah, it doesn't matter the color of their skin, the language of their tongue,
their appearance, the culture, this is insignificant, but what is important is that we love them purely and only because they say, ILA in llama. They say la ilaha illAllah. And I love that person.
Purely and who was with immense is very, the, the who were the the bonds of brotherhood, the bonds of E men can be stronger than the bonds of of blood.
Now, the third one is to hate to turn to Kufa after Allah azza wa jal has saved the person from it.
So again, this is a sign of your Eman hating to turn to disbelief. So
inshallah who tyla
that we love Eliza Richard and His Messenger more than anything else. We love for the sake of Allah, and we hate to turn to disbelief to confer when yours will be. The next Hadees is the hadith of Abu hora de a loved one who Allah and it's originally found in bahaya Muslims.
It's the Hadith of the seven that Allah azza wa jal will place under the shade of his throne on the Day of Judgment, when there will be no other shade but this shade
that is when the sun will be very close to the heads of the of mankind. In one Hadith, it states that it will only be a mile away at the sun will be a mile away, and people will be sweating profusely. People will be sweating.
Some people up to their ankles, some people up to their knees, some people up to their waist, some people up to their necks and some people will be drowning in their own sweat when they're young, they'll be less nice Allah has Salama toe will alfia We ask Allah to protect us.
So the prophets have a long line he was sent them has informed us how we can be included from amongst those people who will be under the shade and not be affected by the sun.
So if you want to be part of the seven, then let's listen to who are the seven groups or seven types of people that will be under this shade.
The first one, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned subtitle you will know whom Allah will be when Liam 1111 Look, Mr. Moon ideal, Mr. Moon ideal adjust ruler.
Because we can see in this day and age, and in the passage of time, that many rulers many people in authority and not just they are in just
in justices and oppressing others and taking advantage of others because of their authority. So the first one that the prophet SAW, Selim, he mentioned is an Imam or ideal adjust ruler.
The second one, he said what Rajan called boo hoo.
Virtue Loon. Sorry, that's the second one is was shadow Nasha theory better to lay as well as shed is a youth in Islam, you are a youth from the age of puberty all the way through to the age of 33. And some said even 40.
So chef is a youth who grew up worshipping Allah. So by actually growing up from a young age, from a young age worshiping Allah azza wa jal and not waiting and procrastinating until you are at an older age,
to worship Allah azza wa jal, this can warrant you to be under the shade of allies origin.
So let's start early. And let's get our children worshipping Allah azza wa jal early.
The third one that he mentioned,
is what Roger Calvo who more often will massage it.
a man whose heart is attached to the massage it a person who's attached to prayer,
who looks forward to solid, especially in the masjid, waiting for the prep.
That what's on his mind is I can't wait to have that meeting with Eliza which to communicate with Eliza which
this is the third type of person who will be under the shade of Allah Isaiah which
the fourth one is what radziwill any to have that filler. Each time I lay he what Africa I lay two persons who love for the sake of Allah. And this is why mmm No, we included this in this chapter because of this phrase, two persons who love for the sake of Allah, they unite further for the sake of Allah for his sake, and they depart for his sake, whether they die, whether they travel, whether they you know, a separate for whatever reason, that they are separated, but they friendship was purely built for the sake of Allah and not for any other material gain. That's it.
So again, we have a chance to be under the shade of Allah under the shade of Allah subhanahu what is thrown on the Day of Judgment by ensuring that we are loving for the sake of Allah, for the sake of La ilaha illa Allah.
The next one, number five. He mentioned what our children the art Homura tune that to Houston in which I'm in for Carla in a half an hour. And a man who is seduced, seduced by a woman who is beautiful, and who has a status has a high position.
So she's not any old woman.
She's a woman who is very beautiful and she occupies
status in the community.
But he rejects her offer. He rejects her seduction. And he says to her, I feel a lot.
This person who does this warrants the virtue of the excellence or the price of being in the shade of Allah subhanho wa Taala is thrown when there will be no other shade on that day but that shade
and the next one, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned number six, water Julian does the copy saga fatin affair her
Island, she man who who met me and a person who gives sada who gives us for the sake of Allah charity, with his yameen with his rights, without even allowing for his left hand to see what his right hand has given. In other words, a person who gives for the sake of Allah, and so he does it in such a way that if he could hide it from his left hand, he wouldn't let alone hiding it from the people from the eyes of people. So he's there encourages us because there is more sincerity when you do it that way. And actions are based on the reward of action is based upon the intention and the sincerity and floss. So when we do something for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, we are going to gain
more reward from Eliza widget.
The only time that Allah met they said that you publicize and you show others that you're giving for the sake of Allah azza wa jal is, if there is a benefit, if it's going to encourage others to also give as a result of you publicly giving, then that is something good.
If it's equal, whether I give
publicly or in secret doesn't make a difference, then it's best to do what to give it in secret, to give it in secret, because as Muslims, we do things for the sake of Allah azza wa jal to gain his love.
So, this was the sixth
type of person who will be under the shade of Allah subhanahu wa attalus thrown number seven, number seven warra jhulan. The Corolla have Hylian farfalle but I ina and a person who remembers a lot in solitude and his eyes shift is so the person who's remembering Allah through read recitation of the Quran or reading a hadith or whatever it might be, and he haiti's
and he weeps out of his love for Allah azza wa jal from his toque, and from his call Sure.
This, these T's warrant to be in the shade of Allah subhanahu wa taala strength.
So Alhamdulillah this hadith has enumerated seven types of actions that we can do that can warrant this reward. Now, in some ahaadeeth, this, this blessing
is actually more than that. Now, according to some of the roadmap including a PSA when I'll have been a manager.
They've given the list of 70 such actions. So some medicine is not limited to seven, but this hadith included seven, but there could be so many or so much as 70 and asuci Rahim Allah Allahu taala.
He said, about the present Hadith mentions only seven qualities to bring into prominence, their importance and also the importance of acting upon them. So they are very important qualities to have.
The next Hades is the hadith of Abu huraira that is found in Sahih Muslim
and it's about the virtues of mutual love, the virtues of having mutual love.
On the Day of Resurrection, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said on the Day of Judgment, a love the exalted will say, in the Lucha de la akula, Yeoman piano. Al Motorhead buena de Jelani Anan Mata have been Buena Vista Lally which means wherever those who have mutual love for the sake of my glory
le oma over lowenfield
Lily yahoomail will lovingly he said today I shall show to them in my shade when there will be no shade except for mine.
Now the shade here when Allah subhanho says my shade,
my shade here is not the shade of allies ojos himself.
So when we look at for example,
the Quran Allah azza wa jal refers things to being he's but it is not interpreted in that way.
So here Allah subhanahu wa taala is saying a Yama overlong field really in my shade, meaning the shade of his throne just as he says in the Quran for example, Nazca to LA
Napa to LA is the she camel of Allah
Nakata La Paz he says For example, out of the law
okay out of the law of the land of Allah.
So, again, this is the interpretation is the relevant have mentioned when it comes to the shade is the shade of the throne and not the shade of Allah as a widget.
So again, this Hadith, where are those who have mutual love for the sake of my glory when you have mutual love for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, Allah will show to you in his shade.
Now, the next Hadith is about the merits of exchanging silence, the greeting of Islam
Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
it's the hadith of Abu hurayrah or the Allahu Allahu Allah and it is found in Sahih Muslim.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said will lead the Neff cvad
will levy Neff cvad
me know when to me no hat hat hat boo. I want to look on eyelash a in either for alto muita have epitone of Susannah anabaena comb, he said,
by him in whose hand my soul is, in other words, by Allah,
you will not intergender until you believe and you will not believe until you love one another.
May I inform you of something if you do you love each other something if you do you love one another. He said promote greeting amongst you in other words by saying Assalamu alaykum to one another.
So what is how do you teaches us is that faith, ie men becomes meaningful only when it is supported by men only when it is supported by actions. And hence allies certainly many places in many parts of the court and he says levena M and Amina Sani had a what I mean, those who believe and who act upon that belief or who do righteous deeds. So the combination of faithful Eman and its practice can take a person to where to turn can take a person to
the next Heidi is about a man who set out to visit another man purely for the sake of Allah azza wa jal and it's the hadith of Abu hora radi Allahu Allahu Allah, and we find that it's a hit Muslim.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a man set out to visit a brother in face faith in another town and Allah sent an angel on his way.
When the men met the angel, the latter asked him, where do you intend to go?
He said, I intend to visit my brother in this town. The angel said, Have you done any favor to him? He said, No, I have no desire except to visit him because I love him for the sake of Allah, the Exalted and glorious. Thereupon the angel said,
I am a messenger to you from Allah, to inform you, that Allah
to inform you from Allah, to inform you that Allah loves you as you love him for his sake.
So that was an angel to inform him that Allah loves him because he loves him for the sake of Allah says origin
this next Hadith is about the answer.
The answer the people of Medina who embraced Islam, the original occupants and inhabitants of Medina, Medina, as you know, was made up of two main tribes and house house and of course, Raj house and house Raj. And in the pre Islamic days they were enemies to each other.
And when they embraced Islam, they became very close brothers. And they welcomed them or had you mohajir in the, the immigrants, those who migrated from Mecca and so in Medina we ended up with Medina ended up with Al mahadji. rune and unsolved unsolved means help us because they hope the mohajir in they helped and supported the cause of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam now, in this hadith
the hadith of Al Bara even as a regular one woman, the prophets of Allah while he was telling me he said that the answer only a believer loves them.
And only a hypocrite hates them.
Allah loves him who loves them, and Allah hates him who hates them.
So it's very important to love all of the Sahaba their loved one whom
and not just to love a handful as some people out there do. We love all of the Sahaba Allah azza wa jal is pleased with them Ravi, Allah one whom what are the one
So, loving part of loving Allah and part of loving the prophet SAW Selim is loving who they love and that is loving all of the Sahaba including aboubaker and Omar and Isha and Osman and I Li for the Allah one whom Jamia
the next Hadees is the hadith of Miranda bingeable or the loved one who and it is found originally in Sinhala, Timothy.
And this hadith
teaches us that when you love for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, this elevates your position to the extent that you'll be on seats of light that there are envied
that those in those people will be envied by the prophets and by the martyrs by the Shahadat
the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said Allah the Exalted has said, for those who love one another for the sake of my glory,
and Mata have buena fija la de la mina Buren manouvering. He has a beautiful home, he has a beautiful home, and maybe you and I wish you had
your beautiful home. And maybe you and I wish you had, that for those who love one another for the sake of my glory, there will be seats of lights on the Day of Resurrection and there will be envied by the prophets in the martyrs.
It doesn't mean that these people will be any occupy a higher position than the NBA. And because the NBA and the rustle the prophets and messengers of Allah, they are the best of creation, the best of creation of the prophets and the messengers, all of them from New alayhis salam, to add them to the others going through to
Moosa and Ibrahim until he said to Jesus and to the final prophet and messenger of Allah, Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So, but these words of the prophets I send them they draw our attention to the superiority and exalted position.
Those who love one another for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will have on the day of judgment that there'll be on my nabire on seats of light we know.
Now, this next Hadees is about a lost love and how Allah subhanho wa Taala is love is due to those who love for his sake.
It's the hadith of Abu Idris
Abu Idris and Fulani Rahim Allah who reported on once into domestic in Damascus. Damascus is a sham. Present day Syria and Lebanon and Jordan.
I happen to catch sight of a young man
Had bright teeth. Now what this phrase means in other words, he was always the only known to be smiling.
And a number of people had gathered around him. When they get over anything, they would refer it to him and act upon his advice. I asked who he was, and I was told that he was more if he'd been given the great Sahabi or the a loved one who was more as a Benjamin.
The next day I hasten to the masjid that found that he had arrived before me and was busy and performing Salah. I waited until he finished and then went to him from the front, greeted him with selon and said to him by Allah, I love you.
He asked for the sake of Allah. Do you love me for the sake of Allah?
I replied, Yes, for the sake of Allah. He can ask me, is it for the sake of Allah? I replied, Yes For the sake of Allah. Then he took hold of my cloak, drew me to himself and said, rejoice. I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, I love the exalted says, My love is due
to those who love one another, for my sake, meet one another, for my sake, visit one another for my sake, and spend in charity for my sake. And this hadith is originally found in mmm Malik, smallpox.
So, again, there's a number of etiquettes that we learn here.
One of the things that we learned in this hadith is when he approached what had been Jebel, he approached him from the front and not just spoke to him from behind him.
That when you love somebody, you tell them that you love them, for the sake of Allah, and that,
there is also a response to that and that is a hug the kalevi that any fee that are a half a lady May the one you love me, for his sake, love you.
and the the end, over tail end part of this hadith is when he said, the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who said, My love is due to the one who loves one another for my sake.
This is what I love. Lesson number one, that my love is due to those who love one another for my sake, who meet one another for my steak, who visit one another for my sake, and he spent in charity for my sake.
He this hadith really should inspire us and motivate us to be doing everything for the sake of Allah azza wa jal
and not to wait for thanks and praise from people.
The next Hadeeth again is about informing those that you love that you love them for the sake of Allah, as per this hadith that is penicillin, Timothy and Abu Dawood, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, He that I have virtually a ha, failure guru and know who you hate, that when a man loves his brother, in other words, for the sake of Allah, let him tell him that he loves him. Let him tell him that he loves him.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he himself actually disclosed his love for one of the Sahaba and he teaches him also a very beautiful do. So when you love somebody for the sake of Allah,
we learned from this Heidi, that not only do you inform them about your love, but see if you can give us give them a naziha a piece of advice.
morality in Japan, the great Sahaba of the loved one who
as we read in soon an apple, the wood and they say that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam held my hand and said
yeah more as Oman. What law he in Neela book will law he by Allah I love you. How fortunate is mine imagine that was you or me? Imagine a person grabs grabs you by the hands I love you
yeah more as one law he and I said he said Bala to really this is something that we can do as well. To make allies the witching hour witness. Voila, he I love you.
In Nila summer Osaka Mirage and
would like to
give you this advice? Let me do booty Cooley, salette Interpol, Allah whom Allah decree was to Creek was near eternity. He said do not,
do not miss out or do not leave off saying the following at the end of each solid.
Now at the end of the Salah here
the best opinion is that it's before you say Assalamu alaikum in your Salah. Before the test mean that the end is part of the format and not after the solid. You say this Allahumma inni Allah Vika our la
areni means help me support me, give me the strength. Allahu murrini. Allah vikita helped me to remember you.
To remember you.
In other words, whether it be through the core and through solid through the sooner through to through whatever it is, Allahu Allah retrica to remember you and not for others not forget you. Because if you forget Allah, Allah forgets about you.
And the one who remembers Allah, Allah remembers him.
Because Allah subhanho wa Taala as one Sahaba he said, I know when Allah remembers me.
They said, How do you know when Allah remembers you? He said Allah subhanaw taala says guru he can remember me I will remember you.
So, he said, to stay alone in me, Allah Vic Rica. Number one, number two was Shu Krita and help me and assist me to be from amongst those who Thank you.
Make me from amongst a shake it in
from amongst those who are thankful and show gratitude towards you. Because when you become from amongst those who think Allah, Allah gives you more, not only does he reward you, but it gives you more because Allah soprano who will die that says while in Chicago, as he then Nakhon
and if you thank me, I will give you increase, I will give you more.
I love marinella the character will show character. We're nearly there that chick and helped me to perfect my acts of worship towards you.
Because when we perfect that act of worship, we're going to gain more reward. When we perfect our acts of worship, we're going to taste the sweetness of that act of worship and the fruits that it has to offer.
So yeah, Allah support me with with with regards to this. So Allahu magan the law is Allahumma only Allah Vika what should kirika wa Hosni a didactic was neither the three things that we should be saying at the end of our Salah before the test, sleep inshallah hotel, memorize it applied.
we also learn about the superiority of more if you've been given or the a loved one who were early, a lot of Sahaba th Marine Allah be pleased with all of us ahead.
So the next head is that mmm no we included is another Hadith about informing someone that you love them.
It's the hadith of NSF and Malika your loved one.
A man was with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when other men passed by.
the men that was with the professor Selim, he said, a messenger of Allah, I love this man. I love this man, meaning for Allah sake. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, he said to him,
alimta, who did you inform him? Allah Allah? He said, No.
Paula Allen. He said to him, inform him, inform him that you love him.
the messenger was SLM said, Tell him that you love him. So he went up to the man and said to him, I love you for the sake of Allah. And the other man replied, a hug Becca Levy, that 10 ila hug baccala de Baptists. Bethenny, Allah, may Allah for whose sake you love me, love you. So this hadith is found in student Abby, there would
So, this was the chapter related to loving for the sake of Allah azza wa jal and the
hadiths to do with this. The next chapter is bamboo island that frog Billa heat island.
One of the signs, how do we know that Eliza loves us? How do we know that Allah azza wa jal loves us, everything has signs, there are signs, you know, you know that somebody loves you when they are always calling you, when they're always helping you when they are, you know doing as you asked them to do their science. Likewise, there are signs that Allah azza wa jal, our Creator God Almighty loves us.
And he never know we got him a hula hoop either from his from his understanding and from his wisdom, he included an area from the Quran to support this and this area is known as a a till empty hand the Alana the scholars they call it a little empty handed the verse of test of testing you if you want to know how you are doing listen to this as Allah azzawajal says, hold in contempt to hipbone Allah Fett, Tabby Rooney, you fit Kamala
where young fella comes unova Kamala, who are foreign Rahim cool, say in other words, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to mankind tells the people if you truly love Allah, then follow me. In other words, follow the Sunnah prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Then follow me. Allah will love you.
Follow me, Allah will love you. So, what this area is teaching us
the fruit of loving
the fruit of following the Sunnah of Prophet Mohammed Salim is the love of Allah azza wa jal. So the more that you are following in the footsteps of Prophet Mohammed Messiah Center, the more that you are practicing and implementing his son mimicking his actions his way
then that is a sign of Eliza which has love
following in the wake of Omaha, Messiah senate and that's why the word sooner means the way of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it includes his sayings and his actions and his approvals.
Call in kuntum to hipbone Allah say if you love a lot
in kuntum to hipbone Allah, Tabby, Rooney at bat, at bat means following
phetchaburi Rooney, you PIP como la, follow me and a level lovey. So this is a very good way of gauging
whether whether or not Allah azza wa jal loves you. And the more that you are following in his swing that of course, the more love that you'll be gaining from Allah azza wa jal, of course, that this needs to be accompanied by sincerity by plus.
the next area that he mentioned, and I just read the translation of it,
oh, you who believe whoever from amongst you turns back from his religion, otherwise Islam, Allah will bring up people whom he will love, and they will love him, humble towards the believers. Now we're learning about the characteristics of those that Allah love, humble humbleness, having pride, arrogance, humbleness, ferwerda humbleness
towards the believers stern towards the disbelievers fighting in the way of Allah and never afraid of the blame of the blamers.
We pray when the time comes for prayer, for example, especially when we live in the West. We find ourselves out and about whether we are out in a park in the shopping center out in the workplace and time for prayer comes. It's unfortunate that many Muslims they shy away from their prayers because of what people are going to say about them.
On Luca, he's doing Luca she's doing Nana, the true Muslim, the ideal Muslim, he doesn't worry if he's doing something for the sake of Allah and his father.
Feeling a duty?
He doesn't. He doesn't worry about those who are blaming him and speaking of him or ridiculing him or mocking him.
He does it because he knows that he has an obligation towards Allah azza wa jal.
So, and he's never afraid of the blame of the believers, that is the grace of Allah which he espouse on whom He wills and Allah is all sufficient for his creatures. needs all Noah.
Elsewhere in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala he talks about his own yet
his own liegt those who Allah subhanho wa Taala loves those who are devoted to him. And he says, and in only a la de la, la him, that the owner of a lot that whole family should be not
and a half, they should have no feet, no sadness.
Who are they? Who are the Olia of Allah? Who are those Allah loves? and levena and then the first thing he says those who believe have the correct belief. What can we or
what can who means they are always practicing Kapwa they always have Taqwa, they always have the fear of Allah azza wa jal, always remembering, revering, fearing Eliza was conscious of Allah, through the actions and through their words.
now remember no we are him a hula hoop Tyler he mentioned here the hadith of Abu whatever the Allahu Allah is a hadith bootsy that is found inside.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
that Allah subhanahu wa tada Allah says, Allah said,
I will declare war.
I will declare war against him who treats with hostility, a pious worshipper of mine, man, Lee willian.
Managua De Anza. To Whoville herb. Whoa
warmaster contra la, de ba in a hub de la la mina para to LA. He said, and the most beloved thing which my slave comes nearer to me is what I have enjoined upon him. In other words, the most you cannot draw nearer to Allah with anything more beloved to Allah, then the obligatory duties.
That is the most beloved acts to Allah, Salah cm, Hajj, Shahada, zakka
the obligatory duties wherever they may be, if it's our obligation, that is the best way to draw need to Allah azza wa jal and earn allies such as love.
So he says, I will declare war against those who treat with hostility
a pious worshipper a Wally a pious worshiper
and then he says Allah says
and my slave
then he says my slave keeps on coming closer to me through performing the weapon
until I love him
in other words, the more nowhere fill nowhere fill
the nowhere fill out your voluntary actions
whether it be the the associated swinger praise to fund whether it be just Southern whether it be or ombre, okay these are the wifey now these things help you draw nearer to Eliza witches.
Okay the exercises.
So then Allah subhana wa tada says, until I love him, and if Allah loves you what happens? He says, I become his hearing with which he is
and his sight with which he sees and his hand with which he strikes and his leg with which he walks. And he if he asked me something, I will surely give him an if he seeks my protection, my refuge, I will surely protect him.
What an amazing Hadith
that by you, fulfilling your duties to Allah, and then by you drawing nearer to Allah through the voluntary deeds, through the Noah field, Allah loves you, when Allah loves you, amazing things are gonna happen in your life.
Amazing things are going to happen.
So, Allah then becomes your special helper
and protects your limbs and protects your organs and does not let them work for his disobedience. That is the blessing. That is the fruit of fulfilling the commands of Allah azza wa jal and during the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Now, there are some heretics out there, there are some people of beta
who basically say that, you know, the only
when you become a Wali of Allah azza wa jal
that only become the eyes and the ears and the hands and the feet etc, of Allah azza wa jal.
That is to say that Allah azza wa jal descends into them.
And that part of Allah is in them when he has a belief, and this is
an incorrect belief, heretical belief, to say that Allah azza wa jal dwells within his creation, Allah is above his creation, Allah is not contained within his creation.
So, as I said earlier, when Allah azza wa jal loves you, amazing things happen in your life. And this next Hadith also supports it. It's the hadith of Abu Dhabi, Allahu Allahu Akbar, whereby the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, either habibollah hutan, and Abner that gibril in Allah to Allah you Hippo for that and for
when Allah loves the slave, when Allah loves the slave,
Allah subhanho wa Taala he calls out to the ark Angel jabril
not any old Angel, the best of the best angels jabril alayhis salam, he calls out tissue debris.
And he says to him, in Allah tala you Hippo full and for him.
So Allah, He says, I love so so love him, then jabril loves him. After that gibril announces to the inhabitants to the inhabitants of the heavens that Allah loves so and so so love him. So as you breathe close out now today to the other angels, Allah loves this person love him. Imagine that, oh, Allah loves you. God loves you. And all of the angels love you.
This is amazing.
And the inhabitants of the heavens, the angels also love you and then makes and then make people on the earth loves a lot of people on the earth ends up loving. He becomes loved by people. Allah loves you, God loves you. The angels love you, the people love you. Why? Because of your good actions and you're drawing nearer to Allah azza wa jal and doing as Allah azzawajal has said, This way you find some people Allahu Akbar, they are they call them people magnets.
They are magnetic, they're able to attract so many people because of their taqwa. And they are remembered.
well and truly after the death, unlike evil people, as for evil people, in this in another narration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and when Allah hates a slave
and when Allah hates a slave,
we're either another I've done the attribute of Baba, Baba hatred.
And when Allah hates a slave, he calls up and he says, I hate so and so. So hate him. Then jabril also hates him, he gibreel then announces among the inhabitants of the heavens, Verily, Allah hates so and so. So you also hate him. Thus, they also start to hate him, then he becomes the object of hatred on earth also, when
So, another very serious heavy
know he he includes a very beautiful Hadith about a man who was in love with sutra to his loss, who Allah had the surah that many of us say in our Salah.
Unfortunately many of us don't say in our solid for the same reason that this Sahaba used to say it
of course we say because we probably want to perform an express Salah to
You know, move on with the dunya issues. And we're all guilty of it in one way or another,
or one time or another,
ie Sharia law 100 reports.
As we read in Bukhari and Muslim,
the Messenger of us has seldom he appointed a man in charge of an army unit, who led them in Sala and this man, he would conclude every citation after interviewed with a surah. And then he would read through this loss in America
number so had Danny when they send something is not from the sooner they would come and ask the prophesised cell is this permissible? Can he do this?
So then, when they returned to Medina, they mentioned is the process silent? And he asked this man, why do you do this? Why do you read sort of La floss at the end of every record?
And he said this was his response. This surah contains the attributes of Allah, the Gracious and I love to recite it
and the messenger of our facility and told him,
tell him, tell him that Allah loves him.
Tell him that Allah loves him.
So we can also deduce from this hadith the superiority of sort of useless because it is a surah of tawheed of monotheism full who Allahu Ahad say Allah is one
called who Allahu Ahad
and that we also learn from this the permissibility to recite to Saurus jeering
more than any one Surah Al Fatiha you can recite a surah more than once.
Mmm, now we include another another chapter, which is a warning against persecution of the pious, the weak and the indigent.
And he mentions the hadith of jungle given Abdullah or the Allahu anhu. And basically it's how we can protect ourselves every day.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, He who performs the fighter, the dawn prayer so both prayer
comes under the protection of Allah mon Sol La salette pika who is in Mattila.
The protection of Allah Subhan Allah questions you about what you owe him, for if he questions any one of you. And he falls short of fulfilling the duty which he owes him, he will re quit and then throw upon his face
into the hellfire.
we have to
safeguard our Salah, an ounce by safeguarding our Salah. Allah subhanahu dannah safeguards us and protects us. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make us for amongst those who love one another for the sake of mistake. We ask Allah azza wa jal
to grant us the love of the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam and to fulfill that the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Allah azza wa jal can love us and we ask Allah subhana wa tada to protect us through our good deeds and to grant us Islam. Allahu Allah, Allah and the loss of hunter knows best. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is the source of all strength. Also Allah who was selling them for the Rock Island Amina Mohammed salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
