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

hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah in my spare, you know, a few who are not going to be here

00:00:06--> 00:00:13

when I was with him in Sri Ram fujinami sejahtera Melina Maya de la forma de la la la la

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

00:00:37--> 00:00:41

allows for HANA data speaks to us in the Holy Quran, Surah Maryam,

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

which is the 19 surah verse 96. Allah Allah says, in alladhina amanu, Kwame lasala had said Allah Homura man would

00:00:56--> 00:01:04

allows further losses in the levy Domino, Kwame lasala. And verily those who believe

00:01:05--> 00:01:11

and those who do good deeds, Allah the Most Merciful, will grant them love.

00:01:13--> 00:01:34

And then Abby saw Salam said, la imana leemon, la Mahabharata Allah that a person who has no love has no face. Other words, your Eman is based on your love. If you don't have love in your heart for anything, then you have no faith in your heart. Love precedes faith.

00:01:38--> 00:01:38

When we look at

00:01:40--> 00:01:44

this verse of surah, Maryam verse 96 of Surah Maryam

00:01:46--> 00:01:53

allows for how the law says if you are a believer, and you do good deeds, Allah will grant you love.

00:01:55--> 00:02:08

Significantly allows from doesn't use the word Allah will grant you love Allah says sagia Allah Allahu la Homura man Buddha, Allah says, enter a man will grant you love.

00:02:09--> 00:02:23

Normally Allah would use his first name Allah. But yeah, our last one uses the word Rama and you will miss the merciful and you will find it in many places in the Quran. Love is always coupled with mercy.

00:02:25--> 00:02:36

Love and Mercy always goes together. So if I'm for example, all the talks about talks about love between husband and wife and allows Wagner says what john bainer Houma

00:02:37--> 00:02:49

my word Rama, Allah says, and I placed between them, my Wanda loves love and mercy. In other words, love must always be tempered with mercy.

00:02:50--> 00:02:54

You can't, for example, beat somebody up and say, I beat him up because I love him.

00:02:55--> 00:03:14

Or I swear at somebody because I love him. People say, why'd you switch your wife? I love you know, but I saw it No, no. Love can ever be tempered with anger or malice or dislike, love always comes with mercy. And so, Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:16--> 00:03:31

saint Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam as the ultimate mercy to mankind as his ultimate gift of love to mankind, Mama outsell NACA Illa Rahmatullah mean Allah says, and when it changed your mama's wasallam except as a mercy,

00:03:32--> 00:03:47

meaning as habibollah the Beloved of a lost counter to the whole of humanity, the whole of mankind, nobody, nothing excluded. And so, we find that people have spoken about love.

00:03:49--> 00:03:55

For centuries, people are spoken about the quest for love, the presence of love.

00:03:57--> 00:04:21

I remember Shakespeare from our high school days, we used to do the Shakespearean sonnets and one of the sonnets of Shakespeare says, Let us know to the latest not to the to the marriage of true minds admit impediment, love his third love which alters when it alteration finds, no bends with remover to remove no it's an ever fix that mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken.

00:04:23--> 00:04:23

That is love.

00:04:24--> 00:04:34

There does not to the marriage of two minds sex really does not interfere with true love. People are married and they love each other don't interfere in their lives don't interfere in their love.

00:04:36--> 00:04:50

And don't alter love when you want to alter In other words, when your wife was young and beautiful and pretty, you love the now that she's fat and around and the cheeks are slightly sagging and even with everything else worth it. Now I don't love it anymore.

00:04:51--> 00:05:00

No love machine do until the end of time. And so Shakespeare says it endures until the end of time he says if that's the era and upon me proved I never read no

00:05:00--> 00:05:14

No man ever left. And so suddenly with a men, I mean a woman always loves us but nobody becomes fat, ugly, sick, whatever it may be. So a woman has a greater capacity of love than what men have.

00:05:15--> 00:05:24

Women always better Allah has made the woman the the homemaker, the rear the rear of children, the nurturer.

00:05:25--> 00:05:31

That role has been given to the wife and not to the husband. So allow for him to lead and if we look at love

00:05:33--> 00:05:34

and there are three ways

00:05:35--> 00:05:37

in which love manifests itself

00:05:38--> 00:05:47

obey maybe two ways, bi directional ways the two ways his love of Allah for his creation for his servants, basically for his ibid

00:05:49--> 00:06:07

and there is the love of the birth for a lost pinata. The one cannot go with the other one. As the song goes, love and marriage goes together like a like I wasn't carried like I wasn't carries Oh, people will know this song young people don't notice. Now you can't make out any words people say.

00:06:09--> 00:06:12

So, the love of a law

00:06:13--> 00:06:25

for he sevens is reciprocated by the sevens loving allows wahana who are always two ways. We, Allah will only love us if we love him.

00:06:28--> 00:06:32

And if we love Allah subhanaw taala he will love us.

00:06:35--> 00:06:38

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Elisa Salaam

00:06:41--> 00:06:42

is given

00:06:44--> 00:06:48

the name by Allah Subhana Allah Allah given many names to many prophets.

00:06:50--> 00:06:54

Ibrahim is known as Halle Lola

00:06:55--> 00:07:01

Elisa is known as Ruffalo. And so many names have been given to many prophets,

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

but allows founder led

00:07:05--> 00:07:14

retained a special name for Mohammed salatu salam, and in the name that Allah Allah gave to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was habibollah.

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

Now,

00:07:18--> 00:07:29

you can hear then, that in the Arabic language, there are many words for love. We have, we have marhaba we have mawatha we have

00:07:30--> 00:07:32

displaying the home we have

00:07:34--> 00:07:46

so many words Adams have device for love, and in Arabic language Normally, if there are many words for one thing, it normally tells us and shows that the Adams is very concerned about love.

00:07:47--> 00:07:52

Adam society, though they were a desert society, they were very, very concerned about law.

00:07:54--> 00:07:58

I suppose it is the only emotion they could express under those circumstances in which they live.

00:08:00--> 00:08:03

Where is in English? There's only one word for love.

00:08:05--> 00:08:11

It's called love. So people will say I love pizza. And I love my parents in the same breath.

00:08:12--> 00:08:30

So there's no distinction between loving pizza, loving your wife, loving your parents loving your author loving your car, or is referred to by one four letter word called love. In Arabic. It's not like that there are grades of love. And we will hear why Allah Subhana Allah call these Beloved Habib.

00:08:31--> 00:08:38

Why did Allah choose this special word? And what is so special about this word, Habib?

00:08:39--> 00:09:16

The word Habib comes in Arabic from the word Hubba. I'm sure you know have been to soda you buy it in Arabia, as if you often go there have been to soda blackseed have been means a seed. So the root source word of love of this word Habib, the name of Mohammed Salah is comes from the word seed, Arabic word seed, sang Sung, which you put in the ground and you water it and you nurture it, and then it grows. And it becomes a three year old bass flute, and so forth and so on.

00:09:18--> 00:09:33

So you can see that the Arabic language is not just not just words, these words have roots and if you get to the root of the word, you will find the real meaning of the word. I mean, let's say for example, I mean we now look at the word seed.

00:09:34--> 00:09:39

And we see that hope comes from the word seed love comes from the word seed.

00:09:41--> 00:09:48

Because love itself is pregnant with so many things and when you love somebody who married somebody what happens? You have 10 children

00:09:50--> 00:09:51

like you planted the seed

00:09:52--> 00:09:56

and so allows for hunt Allah in the Quran speaks about

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

Alec law being radical kita bollore Buffy Hudler.

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

With the creme de la Vina up Nana milligray boy up masala woman Moroccan one

00:10:07--> 00:10:09

and then it goes on with the next voice

00:10:11--> 00:10:13

while your key Muna Salah

00:10:16--> 00:10:26

woman Moroccan otaku, Leica Allahu dama robbed him. What hola como Mosley foon have to come to this word. This is what

00:10:27--> 00:10:46

Allah describes all those things about worshiping allows for honkala being guided by allows pantalla all the good things about the belief in the rabid, believes in the unseen, then Allah, then Allah describes Who is this man? Who is this woman? does Allah say oh like oh Mommy, no,

00:10:47--> 00:10:57

no, does Allah say oh like all Muslim or that they are Muslim? No, does Allah say they are me? No, no, Allah says Allah eco Mu musli hoon.

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

So, if you have the quality of believing in the unseen and worshipping Allah, Subhana Allah and so forth and so on, you have the muffler hole. Now this would move for your own as a very special route.

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

And the root of muffler owns the successful ones comes from the word for law in Arabic, and for law is a farmer.

00:11:23--> 00:11:24

farmer.

00:11:25--> 00:11:31

Now what is the relevance of farming to being successful?

00:11:33--> 00:11:35

Let us look at what a farmer does.

00:11:37--> 00:11:42

A farmer that's and this is one of the reasons that all farmers are churchgoers.

00:11:45--> 00:11:50

If you talk about the African in this country, they all go to church is in itself.

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

And if you go to anywhere in the world, farmers are normally the people who believe

00:11:57--> 00:12:10

they are the believers. Why are they the believers? Because the farmer is the only person who applies a trade we have to put these 100% Trust in allows.

00:12:12--> 00:12:22

Without that, nothing works. So what does the farmer do? He takes a Hubba seed, and he puts it under the ground and he has to cover it.

00:12:24--> 00:12:31

If he's exposed, it will just dry out until that. So what does the farmer do? He takes us he puts it under the soil covers it up and then what does he do?

00:12:32--> 00:12:33

He has to wait

00:12:35--> 00:13:00

and wait and wait. And wait. He says that's what avoids addict stoops the farmers because that's where they sit and they look across the land that they've just planted and now they sit and wait. The Muslim farmer McVicker will lie and make dua I suppose the non Muslim farmer will sing hymns or whatever they do. But what is he What is he what what is he's waiting he's waiting for God to decide what to do.

00:13:02--> 00:13:29

So he has fully fully fit him in allows pinata alarmists in the rain alarmists in the wind alarmists in the sun and so forth and so on the Sandman mittwoch must then be admitted Muslims know too much, etc, etc. We know this and we know that when that crop fails, we're heinola lots of things go wrong. So allows us is allows for Hannah Watada compares the farmer to the successful person. So what is it a trace?

00:13:30--> 00:13:36

person is a person who planted a seed, put it in the darkness and it's fully Akina loss.

00:13:37--> 00:13:46

Other words, a successful person is a person who plans well planting seeds at the right time of the year. And then he puts the Akina last.

00:13:47--> 00:13:50

So how can follow goes together? How buys

00:13:51--> 00:14:03

seed hope comes from hubba, which means that when you plant that seed, you have to plant it with love. You can't say, Well, I'm cross with this gentleman in a bad mood today. So I'm blonde today. No,

00:14:04--> 00:14:19

no, no, no. So as you can see, the Arabic language is then pregnant with meaning it has so much meaning if you know what the meaning is mostly how and if you read in English, it just says those words will be successful.

00:14:20--> 00:14:39

And that is why it's so important for everybody to learn some Arabic, even six months of Arabic, Arabic is a very easy language to learn can also be very difficult. It's very difficult in the sense that even if you live 1000 years you will not be able to master the Arabic language. And that's not because you're stupid.

00:14:40--> 00:14:56

It's because it is such a rich language Subhan Allah and if you don't learn it sometime in your life, you can miss out quite a lot even we only learned a few words of Arabic so that you can be inspired by the look of Allah subhanahu wa

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

so

00:15:01--> 00:15:05

from home from the word love the word mohib comm

00:15:09--> 00:15:12

is the lover. You hate is the one who loves.

00:15:14--> 00:15:19

In Arabic We call it the act of participle. The person who does the deed does the noun, your head.

00:15:22--> 00:15:40

So if your head will law, your head the law is the one who loves Allah. You love Allah, your co head Bula only loves Allah, Muhammad. Muhammad is the object of your love. So Allah will be my boo boo and you will be

00:15:42--> 00:15:44

alone be the one you love in Arabic

00:15:45--> 00:15:46

and you will be the most

00:15:49--> 00:16:12

and then what is Habib mean? We've got we've actually what Toad means I've told you what Mohammed means. I've told you what MakerBot means and what does Habib mean? So panela Habib is a combination of Moray, and maboob. In other words, happy the name which Allah gave to Mohammed salatu salam, as both meanings of love and the one was loved.

00:16:14--> 00:16:23

So habibollah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the one who loves Allah and the word of Allah loves, in the same word, so pardon Allah.

00:16:24--> 00:16:35

Because there is none that Allah loves more than Muhammad sallallahu alayhi Salaam and there is none that Mohammed loved more than Allah was fine, who was God?

00:16:40--> 00:16:44

And therefore when Allah subhanaw taala describes the true believer

00:16:47--> 00:17:11

in the Quran, what does Allah say? Allah describe the person who really believes in Allah Allah says, One levena Manu, assunto berlina Allah says, and the person who truly believes in Allah I shall, he is most in love with the last panel that he loves a lot the most.

00:17:12--> 00:17:31

That's why the name is Hassan says and hopefully level badulla You must love for the sake of Allah and you must dislike for the sake of Allah subhanahu wa. So who then has the most right to speak about love? He was the most right to speak about loving Islam is Mohammed salallahu

00:17:33--> 00:17:34

alayhi salatu salam.

00:17:37--> 00:17:40

We know on a human level, people love different things.

00:17:41--> 00:17:54

But there are two things that all humanity loves beauty and light. Everybody loves beautiful things, beautiful car, beautiful house, beautiful wife, beautiful children, so forth and so on. And we'd love light, nobody loves to be in the darkness.

00:17:56--> 00:17:59

And then there is a third kind of love which is called.

00:18:03--> 00:18:08

When you love a person because you feel that person is worthy of being loved.

00:18:12--> 00:18:14

No explanation is required.

00:18:16--> 00:18:27

Allah is worthy of being loved. Muhammad sallahu wa salam is he worthy of being loved, somebody who has done good to you, is worthy of being loved. You don't have to explain why you love that person.

00:18:35--> 00:18:37

And I say to you that the Arabs,

00:18:38--> 00:18:40

even before the advent of Islam

00:18:42--> 00:18:43

was very in love with love.

00:18:45--> 00:18:48

If you look at the poetry of Israel case was the

00:18:51--> 00:18:57

one of the most famous poets prior to the advent of the Navy Federal law. So

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

there is a very famous poem called

00:19:06--> 00:19:12

Alma June, we're Layla, the married men. And the lady by the name of Layla, much moon and Layla.

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

These phones were written by

00:19:16--> 00:19:17

case

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

because he loved this lady called Laila. And his father then refused. He wanted to marry and father refused. And he went into the days that he became much known because imagine he became mad with love for Layla.

00:19:35--> 00:19:59

And when they used to ask him, as he was walking around in the desert, they're still asking why. Well, you know, who was Layla? Why'd you love later they said, they still asked him why do you love Layla? It says, I love Layla because she's Layla. What more because she's Laila. And why do you love because she's Laila. That that's all I could come on his lips and you could say nothing else and you say

00:20:00--> 00:20:16

Welcome we lose LG Daraa with Al Jazeera he says I used to keep this wall and the PVC go around town he says and used to go and kiss that one and used to kiss this wall when my hug would mallamma hug would dare shut up to me. And he says

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

it's not the love of the walls

00:20:24--> 00:20:26

that is in wretched, my heart

00:20:27--> 00:20:30

lacking for a woman

00:20:31--> 00:20:33

second rbdr he says

00:20:34--> 00:20:37

it is the love of the one who lived

00:20:38--> 00:20:40

among these walls

00:20:41--> 00:20:42

so Layla was gone.

00:20:45--> 00:20:53

asking why do you keep the wall he says I'm not kissing the wall because I love the wall. I keep the wall because sometime Layla will pass this wall panel.

00:20:56--> 00:21:00

I love this dog because once I saw Layla walk past his dog.

00:21:01--> 00:21:08

That was the kind of the kind of love that the Arabs spoke about.

00:21:09--> 00:21:12

unrequited love, love for the sake of love.

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

And as I said, Our law firm The law says that they believe is the one we believe is the one who has that love for laws.

00:21:26--> 00:21:28

So we go to Michael we go to Medina.

00:21:29--> 00:21:40

And then we visit Maggie to love saw and we visited many places in our lives. But mainly a good example between visiting Medina and visiting Bucher.

00:21:42--> 00:22:03

And really, all that is Medina is the property is buried in Medina is masky seen Marina but what attracts us to Medina? What is it about Medina and about Makkah that wants us to go there, over and over and over again. Even though the Prophet is gone, even though the Kaaba just

00:22:04--> 00:22:06

a square block,

00:22:07--> 00:22:09

close with was a black dress.

00:22:10--> 00:22:14

It's because those places represent the places.

00:22:16--> 00:22:35

Medina was the place where the prophets of Salaam walked. So when we walk here, then we think about the fact that Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam traversed the same ground that he lived in this city, his beloved city, Medina, that he died there that he was buried a petitto life was immersed

00:22:37--> 00:22:39

in helping and assisting the people of Medina.

00:22:40--> 00:22:41

And

00:22:42--> 00:22:48

sometimes we go, then we don't see this because some of our modern men has lost the capacity to love.

00:22:49--> 00:22:51

We can look at something

00:22:52--> 00:22:57

and look at the expression of Allah in that thing that we look at, for example, MSG.

00:22:59--> 00:23:03

And that's why, when you look at the massage book by the Arabs of old,

00:23:04--> 00:23:08

the architecture of the massage table was beautiful.

00:23:10--> 00:23:13

It's almost an expression of godliness,

00:23:15--> 00:23:18

the calligraphy the domes, the minarets.

00:23:19--> 00:23:24

And sometimes we look at some of the things and we cry. When we look at and we've read the history of it.

00:23:27--> 00:23:30

We look at the grave of the prophets of Salaam

00:23:31--> 00:23:31

not as

00:23:33--> 00:23:42

just a grave, but we look at it and we see the struggle of the men and the great man that he was the beautiful person that he was and the character that he had.

00:23:44--> 00:23:46

And the legacy we leave behind for us.

00:23:53--> 00:23:56

So the polls tell us that if the art is open for love,

00:23:58--> 00:24:01

the art we'll see that's what allows Pantone talks about

00:24:03--> 00:24:03

absorb,

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

absorb.

00:24:09--> 00:24:12

Oh, people with sight fear Allah.

00:24:14--> 00:24:17

What does it mean? It means that if you look around you

00:24:18--> 00:24:29

and you look at the world around you, taqwa can come into your heart just by looking at the mountain, looking at the car, looking at yourself in the mirror, or look at other you look at a newborn baby.

00:24:31--> 00:24:32

These things all

00:24:33--> 00:24:37

morph into one thing which is called the taqwa of Allah was followed up.

00:24:39--> 00:24:50

until an example of the love will be, for example, a man acts of man, the person who left his country in search of knowledge. That was that was that was the initial motivation for leaving Persia.

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

He wanted to know about God. He was in search of God in search of our laws

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

and in Iraq in Iraq.

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

He came across a monk who told him that a prophet will come to the city of Medina. If you want to meet a new Prophet of the age, you have to go to the city of Medina. And he wasn't. He was very poor. He couldn't get to the city of Medina. And he was he walked Subhana Allah.

00:25:17--> 00:25:23

And he was he was taken up by a caravan. The people of a caravan made him made a slave out of him.

00:25:24--> 00:25:33

And they took him when they took him to Medina. And in Medina, he thought, Oh, this is the city of Medina, the monk spoke to me about the prophet will come here,

00:25:34--> 00:25:46

and the Mongols who gave him the signs of the Prophet. And so the first time we went to the province of Solomon cdrs, he said, Mohammed Salah, he has some dates for you, this is a gift. Now this is for another gift.

00:25:48--> 00:25:48

What

00:25:49--> 00:25:50

Mashallah.

00:25:52--> 00:26:13

The heat hasn't overcome us yet. We still around no shop. So you get goes, and this is Mohamed Salah, and he was watching what the Prophet would do and the Prophet didn't eat it. And the next day, he came with more data The next day, and he gave it to the prophet and they said, this is a gift and the Prophet ate the data and he passed the first six he passed, the second monk said, this is the first test, we won't he doesn't eat charity,

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

he will eat, he will take a gift. And then the Prophet showed in the prophets seal, and that confirmed it. So he knew this was the Prophet sallallahu.

00:26:28--> 00:26:39

So he went to his master and he said, I want to be a free man. So he's mostly do be a free man plant 300 palm trees, when they give fruit you'll be a free man.

00:26:40--> 00:26:41

So he planted

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

300 the trees and when the date ripened, all the trees ripen except one

00:26:52--> 00:26:56

which means he couldn't get his freedom. And he went to the profit subsidiaries rural

00:26:57--> 00:27:02

poverty did Mashallah your free man. He said no one tree didn't bear fruit. So

00:27:04--> 00:27:27

Omar smiled and said, Oh, Sal, man, I planted the three and the three. And it's the three that I planted during a flood was actually my fault. So the prophets Allah said, Bring a tree and prophet planted it for him and it grew in no time. And fruit was given and he was a tree and he loves the province so much. Then what is the Prophet say about him? Solomon,

00:27:29--> 00:28:01

Solomon is one of my family members. He became so beloved in the eyes of the Navy so Salaam probably made him one of his family, I will date Mashallah panela The other example that we have of love of the prophet SAW Salem was Bella Bella who lived in Medina was the profit margin. When the Prophet died, the current standing in Medina he couldn't. He just cried all the time when he was in Medina. He emotionally it was devastating for him to live in the same city that the Prophet lived in, and he refused to make other

00:28:05--> 00:28:18

causes other men take the profit weirdly commonly the Salah, and he left Medina and he went to stay in Damascus for 20 years. He was away from Medina. He loved the Quran, go back to Medina, so much he loved the prophet of Solomon, he couldn't be

00:28:20--> 00:28:32

to be in a place where the where the profit level and the profit was now gone. So after 20 years, he went back. And when he came to the city of Medina, the people said, Oh, Bella, please one more time Macedon for just one more time, he said no icon

00:28:35--> 00:28:45

and then eventually capitulated and he started making iodine in the masjid and when he made other people flooded out of their homes, crying,

00:28:46--> 00:28:46

because

00:28:48--> 00:28:53

they have beloved signal that the prophets of Allah Allah was into come now and make the Salah.

00:28:54--> 00:29:31

So that was the emotional people, they are gonna belong. Now the profit will come and they will come they of course they knew the profit was had already passed away. But that was the emotion 20 years later. So Panama was there for 20 years. And the same emotion that people had when the Prophet was alive and live the Salah, they still that same emotion that same love for the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Elisa to salah and we know the last story, the final one and there are many, many, many Ephesus about how people love the NaVi salado salah and they loved him

00:29:35--> 00:29:46

because he was happy with love, he loved Allah and Allah loved him. And you can't love a person unless you also love the person who loves him.

00:29:49--> 00:29:55

Old people who decide not through this is they say if somebody didn't like your father who didn't like you

00:29:57--> 00:29:57

I don't know.

00:29:58--> 00:30:00

I've come across a lot of people

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

Maybe didn't like my day but if they like me, so maybe it's not so true

00:30:06--> 00:30:10

and the reverse can also be true they don't like you but they like you that that can also be

00:30:12--> 00:30:19

and some people love your dad but they don't like you. So now those are human emotions but the emotion around the babies of the lump was a fixed emotion.

00:30:21--> 00:30:22

It was grounded in

00:30:24--> 00:30:29

in the seed had both the profit sowed amongst them, to love them every single lesson.

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

There is a very famous story of a tube, a tube, a tube Alon sorry

00:30:36--> 00:30:44

arrabbiata lon. When the Prophet came made hegira from Mecca to Medina when the Prophet came to Medina, everybody wanted to give

00:30:45--> 00:30:51

accommodation to the Nerys Hello, la sala Nabil wasn't his camel and he said where the camel stopped there I will stay.

00:30:53--> 00:30:56

So the province or sometimes camel stopped waiting at the house of

00:30:58--> 00:31:00

abou a you but

00:31:02--> 00:31:18

I must remember now the old Medina surrounding the camel. And everybody wants to Providence stay with him. So now and about a year but I'm sorry, what he did was he took the baggage of the Navy of the camel and he kept and he was standing with the baggage in his hand.

00:31:20--> 00:31:26

And he was walking towards his house and everybody's looking what is in the resource are made to do so the Prophet said a man goes to his baggage kills.

00:31:29--> 00:31:40

assets, people will lose their baggage when they go on travel. One of the worst things can happen to you and you never take your eyes off your baggage, right? You take your eyes off your wife and your children

00:31:41--> 00:31:54

and sometimes even your money but your eyes will send your baggage where's my bag? Where's my bag? That's every judge and everybody we owe this my back Okay, fine. Last week to be with my backhoe.

00:31:55--> 00:31:58

They attach it to themselves they take a rope on the tire.

00:32:00--> 00:32:31

So I go in my bag my baggage goes through he was very happy he took the baggage of the enemy santouka duties house and he put it he had the double storey house not like we have double stories is probably just made of palm trunks or whatever any any say to his wife will give the bottom Saudi to the Navy. So a lot of this is the best place to house our guests because he won't be in our way you can come and go as he pleases until we're done install. So he says I will take the opposite will sleep upstairs We will live upstairs while the properties here

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

say went upstairs

00:32:37--> 00:32:51

and he was tiptoeing upstairs and he was telling his wife you stand on the stage and you tell me wherever Mohammed moves, I can't walk there because I can't walk over the head of the Navy Salalah cell. So panel, look at this love for the guest with respect for the gift.

00:32:54--> 00:33:10

And every day his wife used to take food to the Navy Solomon Larry's to eat and every time he comes down, he says show me where the profits are handwash Show me wait on his plate, so I can eat from the same place. And one day she took food up and was garlic in the food.

00:33:11--> 00:33:15

And when she went up to face the plate, the profit didn't eat any of the food.

00:33:16--> 00:33:27

And she brought in she brought the play down and he said Where did the property save profits in 18 of the food. So when upset is jasola You didn't eat our food today profits it I don't eat garlic.

00:33:29--> 00:33:40

We know garlic to be the cure for many things, isn't it overseas? I don't eat garlic. They said but you are a solo. Why do you need garlic is in because I speak to the angels. This. This is a prophetic reason.

00:33:42--> 00:33:46

We can in God speak to angels except we regard your wife as an angel but then

00:33:48--> 00:33:50

call your wife looks at you as an angel.

00:33:51--> 00:33:58

So so he says he said the Prophet told him I speak to the angels and the angels love the dice Well,

00:34:00--> 00:34:07

I always have to when I when the angels come in jabril comes I always have to spell at my best and most of the centum

00:34:11--> 00:34:12

our human I'm sorry,

00:34:14--> 00:34:24

eventually became an extremely poor man. He lost everything. The house the Prophet, Prophet loved by him for a long time until they built the masjid and the prophets out next to it

00:34:25--> 00:34:32

and eventually became a poor man. And he went around and he went to Iraq. And then he made

00:34:34--> 00:34:37

it my boss, Abdullah boss became a very rich man.

00:34:39--> 00:34:46

cousin of the Navy Salas, Allah, and he went to even our boss and he said in our budget, look, you know, I've lost everything.

00:34:47--> 00:34:59

And I have nothing. Could you please help me? Abdullah Abbas looked at him and said, I will do what you did to the prophets, Allah, Allah Subhana Allah. I will do to you what you did to them and tell him he cleared his house.

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

As you take my house and here's a gift of money that will last you maybe your whole life. So

00:35:05--> 00:35:13

that was a gift and reward for him loving and serving the Nabi sallallahu

00:35:14--> 00:35:17

alayhi salatu salam. So

00:35:18--> 00:35:30

you love the one who loves the beloved so he loved you alongside you because he loved the Beloved of allows for Hannah with Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:35:33--> 00:35:35

so how do we get this love?

00:35:38--> 00:35:47

How do we get the love of our last panel? What is the what is the guidance of the Navy so from you know, we can't love the Navy sauce alone. We can't love Allah just because

00:35:49--> 00:35:58

it is a law without explanation. difficult. If somebody says to you, I love Allah because I love Allah. That's a very, very hard position to reach.

00:36:00--> 00:36:04

Because we need to be incentivized isn't that we need an incentive to love anything.

00:36:06--> 00:36:18

So the net is a new human nature and he knew that to tell the Muslims just to love Allah. Let him be very difficult he has to incentivize. We have to have a reason why we love allows Ramadan and the prophets of Salaam said

00:36:21--> 00:36:22

love Allah.

00:36:23--> 00:36:26

Because of the blessings which Allah give you.

00:36:28--> 00:36:34

love Allah for the Nam, the blessings which Allah has bestowed upon you.

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

And the property is speaking to us ordinary Muslims.

00:36:40--> 00:36:42

Because the blessings that we have,

00:36:44--> 00:36:54

we can see we can see it as reality we can see the things which Allah given us, our sight of life. So many things light water.

00:36:55--> 00:37:08

That's what I love. Rather, this is why in town do Nam Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah says me, we should count, not the favors of Allah, Eve you count one favor of a lot,

00:37:09--> 00:37:13

you would not be able to count down you can't count one favor.

00:37:15--> 00:37:22

Because one type of a leg, you break it up, you will not be able to count the favor in one favor. If you take this. This is water in this glass.

00:37:24--> 00:37:29

If we, all of us here in this magic, should decide to discuss the benefits of this water.

00:37:31--> 00:37:36

I'm sure it'll take us days to finish this discussing the benefits of water.

00:37:38--> 00:37:42

Even we should look at the light that we see.

00:37:43--> 00:37:47

And we should set aside a day to discuss the benefits of like you're not able to do

00:37:48--> 00:37:56

and so when we want to love Allah subhanaw taala, which you think about the Namah Namah said the last panel is given to us.

00:38:02--> 00:38:12

There was a very saintly woman in our history called arrabbiata Latvia. I'm sure you've all heard of this lady, very saintly lady, who he said, said

00:38:14--> 00:38:17

to allow for hautala Oh Allah.

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

If

00:38:27--> 00:38:29

you're going to reward me

00:38:30--> 00:38:33

by giving me Jana, then don't give me john.

00:38:36--> 00:38:41

And if you're going to punish me by putting me in the fire, then don't

00:38:42--> 00:38:43

punish me.

00:38:44--> 00:38:49

Now sorry. Nuff said, If I worship you

00:38:52--> 00:38:55

so that one day you will put me in Jannah then they'll put me in jail.

00:39:00--> 00:39:00

Now,

00:39:01--> 00:39:08

I want you to know Allah, that I am worshipping you for you. I don't want reward.

00:39:10--> 00:39:11

I love you so much.

00:39:12--> 00:39:18

That I don't want you to give me Jana in return. I just want to worship you because I love you so much.

00:39:19--> 00:39:20

So hon Allah.

00:39:23--> 00:39:29

So if we say that three men of that time came to her, because they knew that she was a very saintly person.

00:39:32--> 00:39:35

And the first one say to a bracelet is the man

00:39:37--> 00:39:39

who is patient

00:39:40--> 00:39:51

with a taste trials and tribulations and calamities which are a gift to him, or to her. Bless it be that man who shows patience. When Allah gives an illness when Allah gives him

00:39:53--> 00:39:56

removes his razor when Allah takes

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

his health away and he's patient

00:40:02--> 00:40:03

And she replied,

00:40:04--> 00:40:08

to the first man, Mr. Raja. That's a very lonely man. She says,

00:40:09--> 00:40:14

a man who shows patience when Allah text him and gives him trials and tribulations he says,

00:40:15--> 00:40:16

it's a lonely man.

00:40:17--> 00:40:19

And then the next man came along, the next

00:40:21--> 00:40:29

person came in, he said, bless it be the person who is grateful for the tests which Allah gives to him.

00:40:30--> 00:40:31

So she said,

00:40:32--> 00:40:33

Mr. Rogers,

00:40:35--> 00:40:43

is a lonely man, despicable man, despise the woman. So the third one came along and says, bless it is the person

00:40:45--> 00:40:48

who is joyful. When all the tests he

00:40:50--> 00:40:56

was, if he had a lot less testing me, if I pass the test in sha Allah, Allah will love me and I will go to Paradise.

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

And when I read this, I thought to myself, who knows only, if only I could have one of these three qualities.

00:41:07--> 00:41:09

If only I can have patience, when calamity comes?

00:41:10--> 00:41:13

And not when I get the first sign of fever, run to the doctor.

00:41:16--> 00:41:18

Or say, Oh my god, Am I dying?

00:41:20--> 00:41:24

If only I can have patience, I can be grateful, oh, I can

00:41:25--> 00:41:27

even celebrate

00:41:28--> 00:41:30

the taste, which allows pharma gives me

00:41:32--> 00:41:38

and then also they said, but we know why do you say for all three qualities that a lonely person despicable person?

00:41:40--> 00:41:41

And she said

00:41:42--> 00:41:45

her answer was bliss, it is the person

00:41:47--> 00:41:49

who doesn't get distracted

00:41:52--> 00:41:54

from the one who tests him.

00:41:59--> 00:42:05

In other words, blezard is the person who becomes truly conscious of our laws for how intelligent

00:42:07--> 00:42:43

he doesn't forget our last panel. I mean, many people do that today were so weak of faith, that the moment and the taste as we walk somewhere else, isn't it. I'm not gonna mention any way that we go to have done that over and over again. But the first thing we do is we turn away from our loss handling we find some solution by some other person or some other place or some other inspiration, except our loss. And she says, place it is the person who doesn't get distracted from Allah, when Allah sends you the text, otherwise, you focus the solution on Allah was panna cotta.

00:42:44--> 00:42:50

So today, we find many people, we live in that kind of community.

00:42:51--> 00:42:52

We are a minority in a

00:42:54--> 00:43:10

in a majority non Muslim country, and we influence our children influence many people sometimes go overboard with the influences that they that they meet. And you hear people say, I don't want to be Muslim anymore. I can't deal with it anymore. I can't handle it anymore.

00:43:12--> 00:43:35

So the scarf comes off, the coffee comes off, this goes off, the Salah goes faster and goes. The mannerism goes, sometimes you live in a minority real minority minority community. One of the first things that goes is Assalamualaikum goes first sign of great calamity is when people don't say Assalamualaikum women

00:43:36--> 00:43:37

say Hi

00:43:38--> 00:43:40

How you doing? What's up?

00:43:41--> 00:43:45

You good Muslim coming from good to see me what's up.

00:43:46--> 00:43:47

Hon Allah

00:43:48--> 00:43:49

so

00:43:52--> 00:44:06

when we say we don't have any Muslim anywhere does this What is this? I mean, is Allah dissatisfied with these allows for them to say, well, you're doing something very bad now. You know, you leaving the old mind making the oma weak, you know, you just you in the way of destroying Islam. No,

00:44:08--> 00:44:12

no, no, no, no. Allah doesn't need you. Allah doesn't need me.

00:44:13--> 00:44:18

allows for high nutana honors as by being Muslim. Islam is an honor for us.

00:44:20--> 00:44:32

The great honor for us just the rules of cleanliness of Han Allah is the greatest honor that was bestowed on this woman. The gift of the non drinking of alcohol, I'm just thinking of very minor things.

00:44:34--> 00:44:38

We we take these things for granted to go to the toilet and wash so final.

00:44:39--> 00:44:42

Think of that great blessing which allows and gave to us

00:44:43--> 00:44:47

the blessing of being sober our life 24 seven we as we are sober people

00:44:50--> 00:44:52

and allows longer says

00:44:53--> 00:44:56

and is Allah capable of removing all of us

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

and taking all of us away from Islam? Yes, Allah capable of that.

00:45:01--> 00:45:06

It won't harm Islam in any way. Storm isn't about numbers it's not a numbers game.

00:45:08--> 00:45:11

If it was a numbers game Mohamed Salah would not have survived

00:45:13--> 00:45:14

in Morocco in Medina

00:45:16--> 00:45:29

because in both situations he was a minority in Mackay was the minority and in Medina It was a very small minority of the 10,000 people who was in Medina when the Prophet came the they were only 500 Muslims say minority

00:45:30--> 00:45:34

in Makkah, there was less than 100 people

00:45:37--> 00:45:45

but the Profit System didn't say you know, we must keep really minority we have to keep Do we have to keep together we have to do this and we have to do that.

00:45:46--> 00:45:54

So people say Why must you do this celebration and that's because you're a minority and we are minorities you have to keep together you know, this keeps us together.

00:45:56--> 00:46:05

Hold on, so you know better than you Allah loves you more than you love Mohammed bin Salman, you know, everything more than mohammedanism Elisa to Silla, Alicia

00:46:07--> 00:46:17

there is why allows foreigners here talks about love in the Quran. And he says in cuando, una la Fatah do it God. Allah says, If you say you love me.

00:46:18--> 00:46:23

If you say you love Allah, what must you do with Muhammad? Allah, Allah says Allah

00:46:25--> 00:46:34

you must follow him. Follow it, indeed, don't make up your own as you go along. Oh, what do we are minority in South Africa. So we have to do this. It'll keep us together.

00:46:38--> 00:46:40

We must do this because our children will land up in

00:46:41--> 00:46:42

in long Street.

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

So we have to do this.

00:46:47--> 00:46:53

My brothers and sisters, long street is nothing compared to mark at the time was an eBay seller when they were a minority.

00:46:58--> 00:47:08

Nothing compared nothing. coupe bites took about one third women. A woman used to put a flag outside the house, if she wanted to make

00:47:10--> 00:47:18

any money wanted to sleep with a good company of charge. Until she fell pregnant didn't you call all those men together and say, You the date

00:47:21--> 00:47:22

SubhanAllah.

00:47:23--> 00:47:28

We talk about fashion and women dressing their jobs to be naked

00:47:30--> 00:47:33

in Makkah women is to walk around the Kaaba completely naked.

00:47:35--> 00:47:36

So hello.

00:47:38--> 00:47:39

So

00:47:41--> 00:47:44

don't structure your dw under structure it

00:47:45--> 00:47:53

don't do things to this day, never you want to do it and say, we must do this and we must do that. Look at that Mohammed Salam did

00:47:55--> 00:47:56

and look what he didn't do.

00:47:58--> 00:48:05

And look where he led where he progress and what he left for us. In that which he did in his lap he established

00:48:08--> 00:48:17

in the state eventually established. What are these little things that that we do here? Why because it will fail

00:48:18--> 00:48:25

miserably. Why? Because we are going against the bar of

00:48:26--> 00:48:31

the most beloved of our last Hunter, the Habib of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:48:32--> 00:48:33

and so

00:48:36--> 00:48:38

the night before a lot of them tells us

00:48:39--> 00:48:46

that when Allah love somebody, either either have Allah who Fulani Allah love somebody,

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

what does Allah do?

00:48:53--> 00:48:58

Neither jabril you know when you when you have good news when you have isn't a tune, you have good news.

00:48:59--> 00:49:00

When you go

00:49:01--> 00:49:05

so your friend, your brother, your sister,

00:49:08--> 00:49:10

and I'm sure sometimes you finish you tell your wife also

00:49:16--> 00:49:19

isn't it to somebody close to you know, this afternoon that happened to

00:49:21--> 00:49:24

pass my exams with my degree, you know, got a job or something.

00:49:25--> 00:49:29

So I'll also have dinner when he loves somebody equilibrium.

00:49:30--> 00:49:35

And then it says lm said, when jabril came to him the first time gibril covered.

00:49:37--> 00:49:39

The whole world was in between the heavens and the earth.

00:49:40--> 00:49:44

And when he looked at he really fell down he was unconscious, out of shock.

00:49:45--> 00:49:50

And along Thomas he is real. I love so and so you must also love it

00:49:52--> 00:49:53

and I want you

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

to call

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

everybody in the heavens all

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

The angels are created in the heavens call them all together and tell them in the app to phenomenon

00:50:06--> 00:50:09

that I love so and so they must all love that person

00:50:13--> 00:50:21

and allows them to rotate similarly if Allah doesn't like summary Allah will say to you will come to you up let me tell I don't love this purse

00:50:22--> 00:50:32

factor what is usually take unless I may Allah Allah is not prone to human emotion but Allah uses the word somebody must have done something terrible losses that hate him and tell everyone in the heavens today

00:50:38--> 00:50:46

so we should always ask a lot of how that will make us of those that he loves not because of those it despise really disliked

00:50:48--> 00:50:53

cuz it's a terrible thing I mean, you know, somebody comes in and says you know, so and so doesn't like you

00:50:54--> 00:51:02

somebody comes as you know, so doesn't like you You worry too concerned and I say well why doesn't the librarian imagine somebody comes is unloved doesn't like you.

00:51:03--> 00:51:09

I mean, so you come to work on a Monday morning and somebody says what's wrong? Is he looked down you'd have a bad weekend

00:51:11--> 00:51:14

and he says no man Sunday blocked me on his on his Facebook page.

00:51:16--> 00:51:20

So terrible. As a good friend of mine he blocked me off

00:51:23--> 00:51:34

you know what, then I then I tweeted him you know the Twitter I tweeted reminds me Why did you block them on my Facebook page? And he says this is a reason why I blocked out my Facebook page. You're not supposed to tweet me also.

00:51:36--> 00:51:43

Say imagine our loves for home Tyler doesn't like you. Who doesn't like me What a disaster that is. So

00:51:45--> 00:51:46

every day then

00:51:48--> 00:51:52

we ask Allah subhanaw taala 17 times

00:51:53--> 00:51:54

to love us.

00:51:58--> 00:52:03

Enough filata Mr. Karim sirata Latina and M tala him.

00:52:04--> 00:52:16

Ladies, do daddy O Allah Subhanallah Don't make us of those who don't like other words, make us of those whom you love. 70 every day we asked one of Darlene

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

and don't make us and some people say it doesn't have to be Allah him also means

00:52:25--> 00:52:31

don't make us of those who the outward signs of my Islam is more important than my inner o'clock

00:52:32--> 00:52:33

in my character,

00:52:34--> 00:52:43

one of darling and don't let me live in my Islam interminable say yeah, you know, I don't read a scar because Islam is in my heart.

00:52:44--> 00:52:46

I don't do this because Islam is in my heart.

00:52:48--> 00:52:49

No,

00:52:50--> 00:52:53

don't look for the outward of Islam and don't live

00:52:54--> 00:53:01

the life which is given to us through the Sunnah Mohamed Salah lavalieres Allah.

00:53:06--> 00:53:07

So finally,

00:53:09--> 00:53:15

the message of Islam is a message of love. And it's love said in many, many ways,

00:53:18--> 00:53:24

in many ways, but the foundation of our love, which of course means a seed that you plant.

00:53:25--> 00:53:28

So success if you take the word for law,

00:53:29--> 00:53:33

we can always make up a Backstrom and say, success is

00:53:35--> 00:53:37

to plant the seed of love.

00:53:39--> 00:53:41

And to put your trust in Allah.

00:53:42--> 00:53:50

That is life. That should be once life's maximum, that you plant seeds of love for success to be successful. You plant seeds of love,

00:53:51--> 00:53:56

in order for you and so that you can

00:53:57--> 00:54:09

become one of those people who can truly say that I love Allah. And I put my trust in Allah subhanaw taala Lalalalala Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
