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

Allahu Akbar Ramadan anybody can let me know stafa

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

also sanada

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

Milan via

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

Well, on early Hill Ischia was happy he let the underdog

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

anytime you read it love story.

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

You always see that there's one person who expresses their love

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

and the other person either reciprocates and accepts that love and gives love and return.

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

That results in a complete love story. Or on the other hand, you have one person giving their love and the other person just not appreciating it, and the other person just not accepting it. And that results in an incomplete love story something that when a human being reads it, you don't like reading it, it hurts your heart that one person loves that other person so much. And in return the second person for whatever reason, doesn't reciprocate the love. There's an incident narrated in the books of hadith of something similar happening during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It shattered the love and the purpose of the law while he was still his beloved wife.

00:01:39--> 00:01:41

Sure, she freed one of her servants.

00:01:42--> 00:02:05

Her servants name was buddy out of the law. Juana buried under the law was previously married. But as we know, in Islam, if a slave is set free, that slave now has a choice to remain in their previous marriage or take out of the marriage. So when she was set free, but you don't have the law, Juana opted to exit the marriage. She said, I don't want anything to do with my husband, I'm done.

00:02:06--> 00:02:37

Her husband, however, loved her madly he loved her so much. He said, buddy, what will life be without you? Who will I wake up to? Who will I give my love to who will love me the way you love me? And he said please stay with me please stay with me. She said I'm done with you. And she started walking off. He was chasing her on Medina menorah begging her buddy. Don't leave me buddy. Don't leave me buddy. Don't leave me. The Companions when they saw this, they said our messenger of Allah. We are seeing something unique in Medina munawwara that we haven't seen something before.

00:02:39--> 00:02:53

This man is madly in love with the lady and has given her every reason for her to stay with him but she's just fixed on her mind that she won't stay with him. Maybe she had some experience. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said called buddy and called him to

00:02:54--> 00:03:18

the both of them came in front of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Benita this man loves you so much. Stay with him. It's the best for you. But even with the law 100 on messenger of Allah. Is this your advice? Or is this your command? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, it's my advice, not my command. She said does aka love Hayden?

00:03:20--> 00:03:59

Mallory, what are you for your advice? Mila, give you a hi mom. I'm not staying with this guy. And at the end, but he had a loved one had did not stay with him. And when you look at his narration, you think to yourself, oh, heartbroken. He loved her so much. And then some stories, she loved him so much. But love was never complete. When we look at the stories of other human beings, we find our heart to be broken. And we look at the person sometimes who didn't reciprocate and give the love and return that was given to them. Sometimes we view that person as the wrong person. Sometimes we view that person as a criminal. So commonly, this is how people view disobedient children, that their

00:03:59--> 00:04:43

parents give them so much love, they give them so much love. But those children never reciprocate the love, even on a fraction of a level and giving that love back to the parents. So now keep that in mind. And I want to take this very same mindset that you're in right now to a much more serious relationship and a level of love and a relationship of love that was established, which unfortunately, we as mankind have failed to reciprocate. Open the Quran and read about Allah subhanho wa Taala read the Safar that Allah subhanho wa Taala the characteristics that Allah subhanho wa Taala is described in the Quran that Allah uses himself and you will find this theme of

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

love and mercy that Allah subhanahu wa tada says that those who really believe in Allah subhanahu wa tada when they see that love of Allah when levena Armando ashada Bonilla, their love for Allah subhanahu wa tada was only increased because they will see a being who loves them more

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

than their mother can ever imagine loving them. The progress that Allahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that Allah subhanho wa Taala created mercy and divided into 100 portions. And out of those 100 portions, Allah subhanahu wa tada reserved 99 for himself and gave one portion to this dunya. And that one portion is distributed amongst every human being that will ever exist on this earth, not only human beings, the Hadith actually says that one portion is also divided amongst the animals. It's even divided amongst the birds, even amongst the fish, any human being that has love and as parents, for those of us who are parents, ask yourself how much do you love your children, ask

00:05:39--> 00:05:54

yourself the joy you feel when you embrace your child, when you kiss your child, when your child is sitting in front of you, no matter how disobedient your child is, at the end of the day, you will not accept anyone raising their voice against your child, because at the end of the day, Whose child is it?

00:05:55--> 00:06:29

It's your child, right? I shared the narration with you guys earlier on, and then move on. To Him alone without us shares a story of his own. He says one day there was that some narration said that it was an alien himself and according to some traditional narratives regarding another pious person, regardless, there was a pious person who was walking in the streets and as he was walking, he saw there was a home The door was open, the son and mother were arguing. And in the middle of the argument, the son kind of walked out and the mother closed the door on and the mother was watching. He walked a little forward. He took a few steps ahead. He went sat down on the, you know, at the

00:06:29--> 00:07:03

bottom of the staircase, his mother was inside the house. The kids sat there for a little bit, then turned back around, came back to the door. He was too shameful to knock on the door. So what the child did was he put his head against the door, covered himself with a shawl and went to sleep there. He says A little while later, you know, his mother came, she opened the door she saw her child, even though she was angry at him, she started crying, she went to her child and she embraced her child. And she woke her child up and said, Why did you disobey me? Don't you know how much I love you? And after all this love All you can do is betray me and speak back to me and be

00:07:03--> 00:07:39

disrespectful to your mother. She said to him promise to never do it again. He says to his mom, I promise I won't do it again. And his mom walks him right back inside the door. And it'll tell you about him well Donna says this is the relationship that every servant has with Allah subhanho wa tada Allah subhana wa tada love is such that while you and I sleep at night, Allah subhana wa Tada. As it is, as as it is appropriate for him descends to the heavens of the earth and says, Is there anyone who wants my forgiveness? Is there anyone who wants anything while we remain asleep? our allies asking us Is there anything that you need? A loss of honohan without his commitment to loving

00:07:39--> 00:08:24

you is all over the Quran? What if Matthew was at my mercy encompasses everything? You may forget about that Allah that loves you, but you're alone will never forget about you. Not the Hulu Sina tamala known the home office tomato marfil manga la de la ya la mama a de him mama alpha home. What are you gonna miss a minute with me? He ilahi Masha he has all knowledge of you. It never misses him for a moment. No one can harm Allah. No one can even intercede in front of a law without the permission of Allah subhana wa tada Allah knows everything in front of you. Everything behind you. Your ally is constantly observing you as a lesson on Wanaka Robert II mean heavily worried closer to

00:08:24--> 00:09:08

you than your juggler vain. You're Allah subhana wa tada says, Allah will become your Lord knows you better than you know yourself. The thoughts that are crossing your mind the emotions you're experiencing, the weakness that you're going through the strength you have in you, your Lord knows of all of that. A lot of I don't want that I created that in you. So you may use your circumstances and come back to your Lord and one day just one day, attest to your Lord Yahweh Allah. I have love for you as you've always loved me. Yeah, Allah. You created me. You created this face. You gave me ability, fee surah t Masha Allah Kabak, right Allah, Allah Kaka for so work for Allah, Fie surah

00:09:08--> 00:09:50

tin, Masha, Raka Baka that your Lord fixed everything for you. Your Lord loved you before you were even in existence. Hello. insomnia. Hello, Mina, dari Lamia Conchita mascara. And then Allah says in my Shakira, Emma ca fora that Allah created you, Allah was aware of you before you were even in existence your Lord had already committed his life to you that Allah says that from the from my servants from my creation, there will be those who will be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala and they will live their life in the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala worshiping him in his obedience and then there will be those people who will be negligent of this everlasting love that Allah subhanho

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

wa Taala has for his creation. You know, I shadow the loved one that says that one day she was at home and someone knocked on the door. She opened the door

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

And there was this mother with two children by her side and they were all hungry. They asked, I showed her the love and if she had any food, I showed her the love and how she went inside. She had three dates. She brought the three dates forth, and she gave it to them. The mother took one day and she gave one day to each of her child. And she continued to think I shouted the lohana for her generosity. While she was thinking, I shouted, the LA Honda, the younger kids, what do they do?

00:10:27--> 00:11:02

They, they inhaled their date, they ate it very quickly. After eating their date, what were the kids going to do now? They saw one day left and it wasn't their mother's hand. They started looking at their mother with hunger, wanting more. So I shouted, the last one that says I was observing this all remember, I showed you a loved one that did not have her own children. Keep that in mind. So she was still understanding the love that a mother had for her child. She's saying that the mother was in front of me. She was hungry herself. I can see it all over her. But she took her he split it into give half to one child half for the other child and she went away. I showed her the Aloha and I said

00:11:02--> 00:11:39

I was so puzzled and amazed by this love that when later on that day, the progress that along Hawaii was sent on came she said I asked them as I asked the prophet or messenger of Allah, kind of mother really loves her child that much that she took her date and split it in half. And I want you to reflect over this. How many times have our mothers and fathers sacrifice their own comfort for our comfort? How many times have you heard your mom say, I'm not hungry when you know for a fact that she's hungry, but she gives you her food? How many times do you hear your father say I'm not thirsty, even though you know for a fact he's thirsty, but he gives you his drink. That's the love

00:11:39--> 00:12:13

they have the progress that allamani was sent him finished off that narration by saying that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves his creation many more folds. You can disobey Allah you want all you want to shavon can make you think that you are distant from Allah subhanho wa Tada. But Allah had Allah subhanho wa Taala not loved you, he wouldn't have made you from the sun. He wouldn't have made you from the home of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he wouldn't have given your heart Iman, Allah wouldn't have given you the trophies to live in this room, Vaughn. Your Lord wouldn't give you the ability to walk through the doors of these massages. Your Lord wouldn't let you sit here right

00:12:13--> 00:12:48

now if you think your Lord has nothing to do with you sitting here listening to my words, my words you've been diluted my shavon if you think your Allah subhana wa tada has nothing with your thoughts that are crossing your mind right now. And the emotions are hard to reconcile right now. If you think Allah has nothing to do with any of this, your ship on has once again diluted you and even though chiffon is locked away, his effects still remain now and we continue to be diluted. Your allies waiting for you. The doors of Allah subhanho wa Taala will never closed upon you. The road may close their doors but remember that when you go into such that you will find your Allah there.

00:12:49--> 00:13:27

And when you come back to Allah subhanho wa tada when your heart finally learns to beat in the love of Allah, when that flatline starts some movement and you start feeling what the purpose that Allah subhanahu wa tada created before going after the people go and ask the people who've said one tear in the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala they'll tell you that was the day they learned to live before that they were completely dead. That tear had no pain had no agony had no sorrow had no pain. When a person cries for Allah, that's when your heart feels liberated. That's when you find the purpose of your creation. Before this Ramadan ends. I plead with every one of you find a moment where you can

00:13:27--> 00:14:06

just connect with Allah subhana wa tada where you can find that love for Allah subhanho wa Taala your Lord is waiting for you. And I tell you this without any exaggeration, and finally when that servant knocks on the door of Allah subhanho wa Taala and back your Lord says to you, yeah, you have in some Karim? Oh in son, What took you so long? I was waiting for you every night every day that you were going to come back and I kept giving you opportunity after opportunity kept giving you the path kept showing you kept putting people in your pathway kept allowing you to hear the words of the Quran, but you kept ignoring me. Why were you ignoring me? Do you know how happy it makes Allah

00:14:06--> 00:14:44

subhanho wa Taala when you and I are broken, dead sinners turned back to Allah. Even though Allah has no need for us prophets have worshipped him, only I have praised him and here you and I, you know total sinners when we come to Allah subhanho wa Taala it brings such joy to Allah and I close with this hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while explaining to the companions how happy it makes Allah subhanho wa tada when sinners turned back to their Lord, he said, Imagine a person who was travelling in the middle of the desert. There is no sign of any life at all. This person is traveling with his camel and his camel has all of its provisions on it. And then, while

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

traveling to the heat of the desert, he sees one tree he decides to lie underneath a tree to take a little nap. As this person lies down. When he wakes up, he finds that his camel has ran away and it's gone. When this person's camel is gone, what does he think to himself there's no way to live.

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

I'm in the middle of an ocean of sand. I can't go anywhere. Sometimes spiritually you feel like you're stranded. I have such a past. So much bad I've done so much bad I feel right now I can only see my future. Building upon that bad you feel like you are in an ocean or in a in a in a desert of desperate see that I'm desperate I you become despondent. And that's the feeling that that person feels that death is imminent. It's going to come. He says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says he walks it over here walks a little there tries to find this animal. But when he realizes that there is an animal, he realizes that death will definitely come. So what he does is he returns back

00:15:41--> 00:15:56

to that tree he lies down and closes his eyes knowing that now the next time I wake up will be death. And with the hope of death, this person closes his eyes. Then he opens his eyes. When he opens his eyes, what's that? What's standing in front of him?

00:15:57--> 00:16:12

The camera and it's fully loaded, the food the drink the shutter, but the symbol says all of its there. And this guy jumps up the camera, he grabs it. And he says Oh Allah, He says 131 or a book.

00:16:13--> 00:16:54

What does this person say? He's in so much joy. The Hadith says that this person when he praises Allah, what does he say? Under? Abdi wanna rub book, he's supposed to say Allah, you're my Lord, and I'm your servant. But because he's so shocked that he just got a second chance at life, that he says Yala, you are my servant, and I'm your Lord. And the Sahaba they smile, because they realize that this person didn't say it consciously. He was so amazed at that moment that he's given given a second chance that he said something that obviously he doesn't mean at all. So similarly, the joy that it brings to a lot of pleasure that it brings to Allah subhanahu wa tada that you and I will

00:16:54--> 00:17:31

return to Allah subhanho wa Taala someday, because Allah subhanho wa Taala His love is not generic. It's not some generic Walgreen pill that you get, because it's the cheapest one on the shelf. The love that Allah subhanho wa Taala has for each and every one of us is very special. It's very specific. Had it not been for that love, we wouldn't even exist, had it not been for that mercy you and I wouldn't exist, the prophets of Allah who it was send them read the ayah into zip homefinder whom I bought, if you punish them Allah, then they are Your servants and if you forgive them, then you're the merciful and he cried and cried and cried. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:17:31--> 00:18:06

that Allah subhanho wa Taala sensitivity analysis prompted me to be listened and came and said, O Messenger of Allah, what makes you cry? The prophets of Allah while he was said and said, I'm concerned on my own, what's going to happen to them on the day of judgment? I don't want any of them to be punished. I want all of them to go to Agenda GB rally summit went back to Allah subhana wa tada and said, Oh Allah, the reason why your messenger is crying is because he's worried about his oma, he's worried about us. The thought of it keeps him awake. So then Allah subhana wa tada said, Did you have to go and tell him that if you are so worried about them, know that on the Day of

00:18:06--> 00:18:45

Judgment, we will please you and you will not be harmed in any way? Whether so for your ticker of buka fatorda Allah will please you. And in one narration the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, then I will not be pleased, until every man and every lady will go into agenda before me. Meaning all of them will be given their agenda inshallah. Be be optimistic. Get close to Allah subhanahu wa Tada. Don't let your past hold you down. Don't let anyone tell you that you aren't worthy of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. That's their twisted image of Allah subhanho wa Tada. Sometimes as parents, the image we draw of our Creator is as if we're describing the demon in front of our

00:18:45--> 00:19:26

kids. Which a lot are you talking about? The Allah that you and I know of? Is that Allah whose words we start by reading everyday Bismillah R Rahman. R Rahim Rahmani r Rahim Allah Hara now last Mercy is infinite, not only in this world, but also in the hereafter. Anyone who gave up on Allah mercy was always a loser. Allah subhanho wa Taala says la de niro Hilah la takana to Mirage Mattila, don't ever give up on Allah subhanho wa Taala. Just as we tell a child, never give up on your parents. Your parents always love you. Sometimes they won't agree upon the person that you want to marry. Sometimes they may not be happy with the car you're buying or the decisions you're making with your

00:19:26--> 00:19:34

career. But at the end of the day, they always love you never forget that about Allah subhanho wa Tada. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in my close with this Hadith,

00:19:36--> 00:20:00

he advised the Ummah he spoke to the oma at large and he said, promised me you will not leave this world promised me you will not leave this world. But as you die, you have the best thoughts of Allah subhanho wa Taala that my lord is out of Hama Rahimi, my Lord will forgive me and my lord is a Rahmani Raheem. That's the law that we've known and inshallah, that is

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

Allah that will judge us with his father not with his other on the Day of Judgment inshallah he's well set along with Allah cetera Mohammed sir Mr. Tanaka
