we're both semi rigid and clear on one Isa. What up amahle lady Tessa Louis well our home in La Jolla la calm or aka my brothers and sisters on this beautiful sunny Friday of the fourth of June in the year 2021. We hamdulillah are nearing what we hope to see the reopening of our massage it but for now continue to do everything virtually and online. And we see that it is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala and out of his love and mercy that we wish will back to the masjid that we have that love of the masjid within us we have the love of the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala within us we have the love of the community and the connection to be you know, linked back to our friends and
community members and our you know, fellow Muslims that we would see within the masjid and that love that we feel within us is a love that we feel because Allah subhanho wa Taala loves us. And today's topic is about just that. Allah dude, one of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala the most loving, aware dude that means the most loving and him of Allah subhanho wa Taala Alvarado that comes in the Quran two times
we see that Allah Subhana actions this name in the Quran, and he mentions of course love and would write what Yeah, Allah Dana. Bina, Allah Subhana Allah says
in Surah to roam about those who we mentioned this every single wedding right but we haven't gone to weddings in a long time. So it's resting in the mind. Would you rather day my word that Mr. Rama, right, Allah subhanho wa Taala puts love between us and what is that love, he differentiates between love mercy, right that love of Allah subhana wa does not like the love that we typically know of. In fact, when we hear his word love, a lot of the time what pops into our mind is what most society has made us think of or has to end us to feel the word love actually means. So sometimes when we think of love of Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, we think that Allah loves us and he provides for us and
He gives us and that can be very closely linked to mercy. But when we just generally mentioned this word love sometimes, you know, romance comes into mind. Love is only found been, you know, husband and wife, for example. But that isn't the case. Love as we see the most loving Allah dude, Allah subhanho wa Taala he mentions, well, we want to do it, right Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah, two broj and he is the all forgiving, all loving
and the most loving, he loves his prophets. Allah Subhana Allah is Allah dude. It's one of his names, right the most loving, he loves his prophets. He loves his matters, and he loves his obedient servants, those who worship him from amongst his creation, and those who also love him. So Allah subhanho wa Taala and well dude loves his prophets, his messengers, his creation, those who love Him in return, the prophets and messengers loved loss of Hannah Montana and he lives and we also love Allah subhanho wa Taala and he loves us. overdue wood loves us with His Lordship, because Allah subhanho wa Taala is our Lord. He shows that love and mercy towards us in many different ways. So is
our Lord who loves us and looks after us. He is our Creator, Peter who loved us in human beings, Allah somehow
hula hula created us with love.
Right? Allah Subhana Allah blesses us so His love is shown to us in the blessings that he showers upon us. When you think of some of these blends, you think of your clothing. You think of
Belfer fright when you look in the mirror Aloma into his center, the first sin, right, you are thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And you say, you know, a duality him when you look in the mirror because you're thankful for what Allah Subhana Allah has blessed us with and the love that he's shown us in creating us Allah into his center called the right to Allah you have perfected You know, my my creation as in my outer for Heston Co Op, so make it better within me on the inside make me better, right. And so we show that love to Allah subhanaw taala for the love that he's shown to us, we also set away dude, the fact that he created us and gave us this life, he gave us so many
other things he looks after us with the food that we eat. You know, after tomorrow, you might have a drummer how to treat if your parents treat yourself hamdulillah if your parents don't treat you on Fridays, well now you have an excuse to request some meal or some nice dessert or something nice some sweets, some fruit, some vegetables, I don't know, whatever is that you like some people like eating salad and they'll handle it. That's what they're blessed with. Right? And so Allah, Allah dude loves us so much that He provides for us the things that we like as well. So it's not only our appearance, it's not only our clothing, it could even be the things that we love to consume. What
kuno wash or abou Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah tells us in the Quran, so eat and drink from what Allah has provided for us. And he provides for us the things that we love, you'll notice that there isn't a person on the face of this earth that can't find the foods that they love.
Because Allah has made so many different things, and for people in some regions that they love that other people in other regions don't love. So you'll find that if you travel to a certain tree, you might see foods there and smell the foods and look at the food and you're like, No way I can't eat that.
But provided those foods for those people because those people love that kind of food. And the foods that he provided for you in your country, India, in your region are the food foods that you love, because you are from region. And that's what you love. So a lot of our dude provided that force. And why dude also looks after us in so many other ways your health.
Your health, or loss of goodwill dude provided health for us. And I know some of us will think well wait a second, I have health issues. Well think to yourself, first of all, Was I the one who led to some of these health issues Was I the one who didn't eat or didn't sleep, or didn't drink or didn't exercise or didn't do this and that in order to better my health in order to serve my health. And if I made that mistake, well then I know by default, overdue it was helping me and after me in providing for me, but I was the one who consumed the wrong things.
I was the one who didn't do the exercise, and then associate but I didn't ask to have diabetes. I didn't ask to have a certain illness. I didn't ask to have a certain you know, disease that is out there.
Dude sometimes shows us how to be a pre creative of what we have by taking away some of the things that we had.
That is the love of Allah subhanaw taala that we will see and why dude, he doesn't take away something without replacing something with it. So when health is taken away, forgiveness is being given. When health is removed, Paradise is being earned. When health is being removed, ease in the grave is being received. Right when health is being removed. We may be patient with it and earn shade on the Day of Judgment. When health is being removed. We may earn so many other things in return. So our dude continues to love for us in ways that we might think we are not being loved. My brothers and sisters you might think of someone who is locked away in prison for something they did
not do like profit use today his center aisle where dude was showing him that love
that when you
Receive freedom. From this time in prison, you will be elevated in honor and status. And that was the case with Prophet Yusuf I had sent him was put into print, he was completely innocent. He didn't do anything wrong. He was even predicting himself and trying to get away from the house, he is the Minister for her to also protect herself. Don't This is something Allah is not pleased with.
But Allah subhanho wa Taala, through the patience of Prophet Yusuf Allah has sent him showed him the woods, the love, the love, the law had in store for him, and blessed him with something even better. And so when wood removes the hardships, he shows us His love by removing the hardships that we go through in life. And remember that this life is temporary. So for you and I, when we think of this life, we think of this life as being everything, everything that's important to us is in this life. And that's wrong. In fact, it doesn't think that way. A lot, understands and knows, I shouldn't even say understands he knows, right, he knows that this life is a temporary life that you and I as human
beings are living through and passing through, and that we will live in an eternal life later on. And so some of the hardships that we go through in this life
our reasons for him to shower his love and mercy upon in the hereafter.
overdue would be us the Sharia that we live by.
In life, we might want to do things I might want to go into take something that belongs to you.
But I see that you have it and you own it, and I want it so I go and I take it.
But Allah has just laid it in the Shetty and is not permissible for me to go and take that. So for love of Allah to us is that he sent to us away to live Sharia legislation, rules that we live by, we don't take away the rights of others. We don't steal from one another. We don't cheat each other. We are honest, we speak the truth. When we say we are going to do something, we do it. If we say we're not going to do something, we don't do it.
And so we're dude shows us His love by removing the hardships, but also by providing a Sherry a way of living a way of life for us. And we see that in the center of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam where he shows us our dude shows us the way to paradise. How do you get to paradise? How do otter paradise? How do all the human beings work towards getting to paradise? It's by following the way that I would always dude has set upon us. So that way to paradise to us because the love of Allah because Allah loves us. He loves us so much that He shows us how to get to paradise and he sent prophets and sent message and we follow prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as the last and
final prophet and messenger of Allah. And his way is the way that gets us to parrot bass. And that is from the love of
my brothers and sisters. We all make mistakes.
In life. We all make mistakes. But what dude accepts our repentance, and forgives our sins, and continues to give us goodness and guidance. And he loves us more than our own parents love us. When we think of our parents, how many times have we made our parents upset, in fact, this morning, sitting down having breakfast with our children, and the younger one, you know about marriage? They were talking about their ages, right? So the the older one was saying when I'm going to be 13. You know, Lina is going to be 11. And one I'm going to be 17 Lena is going to be 15. And she says what I'm going to be 19 and getting married. Lena is going to be 16 and she's going to be looking to get
married or she's going to be thinking of the person she wants to get married to. This is what they were saying over breakfast. You can't stop children from imagining right.
And then llinas Oh, so when you get married, say we're talking about marriage
They were talking to wedding day. And you know, we live in a society where some of the practices that happened at weddings around us even times Muslim weddings are not Islamic. So I was saying, That's not the way of Allah. Allah doesn't like that. Right? It doesn't like that. So
well, then a wedding is boring. When you get married, it's so boring. All I'm gonna be doing right one of them is saying, all I'm gonna be doing is like serving people food and cleaning up after the visit. No, it's your wedding day, you're gonna be happy people are coming and see happy for you, and so on. And then after the younger one says, Yeah, it's so amazing. You won't have to listen to your parents anymore.
Look at that. Children are thinking, I can't wait to the day comes where I don't have to listen to my parents. And then I told them, I said, No. You still have to obey your parents still obey my parents, right? Our parents still obey their parents. That is how we live. But dude, he is so loving. We think that our parents are harsh and hard upon us. Right? That's how we feel as children. But we do it sometimes puts those laws in place and we feel it's too hard. It's too difficult. But he's putting them in place because He loves us. And then what happens is that we go and we do things that are mistakes, or sins and we sin we make a mistake.
But well dude, still ups our repentance because He loves us. He's the most loving.
So when we make a mistake, we could have sin, we turn to Allah we undo how Allah forgive me for what I've done. You are unwell dude. shower your love upon me or Rahman Rahim shower those blessings have mercy upon me. You are a fool. Forgive me for the mistakes that I've done.
And so, in return, despite making mistakes, and displeasing Allah, Allah, Allah dude may not even punish us for those mistakes that we've done. He loves us so much, that at times when mistakes, he will not punish us.
And he will not take away from his blessing. And he will not make us go through hardships. And he will not have even written in our book of deeds committed a sin. And he will not even question us on the Day of Judgment for those mistakes that we've made. Because he's the most loving, he loves us so much, and wants the best for us. So despite making mistakes and committing sins, otherwise dude can teach us to shower his blessings and mercy upon us. He continues to give us life.
right he continues to give us food he continues to give us fresh air he continues to give us seasons he just continues to give us time he continues to give us jobs and work and professions and education and children's of happiness and joy and parents and hopefully soon some time to visit people right and wealth that we enjoy of this world. Even though we made mistakes,
even though we committed sins.
But because also much he may not hold us accountable, sins and mistakes that we've made.
You see, brothers and sisters, Allah subhana wa Tada. As we have a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says when Allah loves someone, he tells the gibreel
that he loves them. And he tells the angel gibreel to love so so person and he mentions them by name.
So for example, your name is Fatima Your name is Lunas. Your name is Manal. Your name is Malik Your name is
nism Your name is NIDA Your name is Abdullah Your name is Fatima Your name is Muhammad Your name is Aisha Your name is Khadija Your name is Debbie would your name is Bella Your name is Manuel Your name is Lena Your name is destiny um Your name is whatever your name is. Allah tells Angel gibreel I love Abdo law. I love Allah to law. I love fathima I love Khadija I love Muhammad I love that wood I love miroir I love Lena I love tasneem I love these people. So love them too. He tells the angel jabril so love them. So the angel gibreel loved them. And he goes in he tells the other angels that Allah loves this
person I love them too.
So the angels start to love you by name. You're being mentioned by Allah by name. That's amazing, right? We should all want that we should all work towards trying to seek the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala, so that Allah can mention us by name
to the angels,
and the angels love us. And because the angels love us,
a lot of places acceptance, goodness, around that person and for that person on this earth, that the people of this earth start to love them. And this is why we see that as prophets, his messengers, and his only those that are close to him, his pious servants and worshipers, and we'd love those who we see.
Sometimes we meet them, and we say there's something about him, there's something about her. And for the sake of Allah, we love them. And there's nothing wrong, my brothers and sisters to say that you love another Muslim, whether brother or sister, because you love them for the sake of Allah, the love that Allah shows us, because he is and what it is not a romanticized love. So a Muslim brother could say when he hears about another Muslim sister who's going through hardship, he could say, No, I'm going to help her. I'm going to pay her rent, I'm going to look after her children. She's a single mother or she's a widow, I'm going to take care of her and a few brothers maybe and sisters
get together to try and help her. It's not because they want anything in return from her or her family. They're doing it because they love Allah and we're doing it and they want reward from Allah dude. They want the love of Allah. They want a lot to love them. And so they help others. Because they know that Allah dude would love that we are doing this. And because we do that, and why dude loves us.
And the angel God loves us, and the other angels love us. And life on Earth becomes easier. And we go through so many times of ease and happiness and joy and the people around us are so nice to us. Because as
Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran in quantum to hipbone in law, her fed Debbie Rooney or B Mu kumaun law who I owe locums on Balcombe if you claim that you love Allah,
follow the way of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him on the law where I lay us under
because when you follow the way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam What does Allah say, your baby Kuma Allah, that Allah will then love you.
And wherever Fiddler comes in, overcome, and he will forgive you
of your sins. So we love Allah subhanho wa Taala when we love Allah as our job, when we love Allah, Allah dude,
life changes around us, things become different, see things differently, we start to realize that if I am going to be honest, in my work,
I will earn the love of Allah and Allah will love me. So I'm gonna keep doing it. And if I want to food, I will eat what is halaal What is that Allah loves, because Allah will love me, and I love
and I want to please Allah and do things for him. And so I will help others and I will be honest, and I will not cheat and I will not steal. And I will stay away from things that are displeased because I want to please Allah, I don't want to be scared of a lot and run away from him. I want to please Allah and love him so that Allah will continue to give to me and the relationship between Allah and US will become stronger and better and better.
And then we see what we notice in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
When we love Allah subhanho wa Taala
every everything that we do, becomes something the inclined towards pleasing Allah.
Right. What we look at, we look at because of the love of Allah, and what we don't look at we
Don't look out because we've Allah,
where we go and what we touch and what we, you know, do physically with our hands. And every aspect of our becomes an act of worship in order to please our world.
So my brothers and sisters, today's Name of Allah is Allah dude the most.
And you will notice that the more love you show to Allah by being obedient to Him, the more love will show to us. And remember that even if a person makes a mistake, and it's a sin or already has committed a sin because some people say I've done some such bad things, really some serious things in my life.
seek forgiveness and repentance from Allah subhanho wa Taala because Allah dude
continues to love us, even when we make mistakes.
Because we repented
because we repented.
And those are from the closest people to Allah, those who make mistakes and then repent at Utley.
