All praise is due to Allah alone.
And then we seek aid and assistance. And then we turn both in repentance and for forgiveness. Truly whom Allah subhanaw taala guides, none can mislead. And he will allow leaves to go astray there is none who can guide and I bear witness that there's nothing worthy of worship, save a lot alone. And then Mohammed Salah Allahu alayhi wa sallam is both his servant and His Messenger.
The scholars sometimes offer a parable.
They describe the hearts the call as being a king over the body.
And the limbs are the soldiers belonging to this king.
The soldiers are the eyes and the ears and the hands and its legs.
But the one who sends commands,
instructions is the hearts the king of the body.
And so if one wanted to ask themselves, are they good or not?
Too often there are people who will do evil things with their limbs with their body with their mind.
And they say to them, yeah, I did something evil but I'm still a good person.
But if limbs are acting with evil,
it's an indication that the hearts
itself has become corrupted.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said enough and just to the mobile is also the head, Salahuddin Jazeera. dokolo. way the faster that faster they'll just do kulu. Allah will help Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah he'll call.
He said, there is an organ in the body, if it were to be righteous, the entire body would be righteous. And if it were to be corrupted, the entire body person would be corrupted. And then the prophets of Allah wasalam said three times, indeed it is the heart indeed it is the heart indeed is the heart. And Allah Subhana Allah tells us in the Quran,
vein, Allah Tamil absorb.
Well, I can tell I'm a guru Latif is pseudocode. It is not the eyesight, the eyes that become blinded.
Rather it is the hearts in the chest of men that become blinded.
And it's important for us to reflect on the status of our hearts.
Because the prophet SAW along where it was sent him said in the la leyendo era, I just me kumala ada sorry, kumala kanungo Allah, Allah, wa Maddy,
the prophet said, Allah does not look to the shape of your body. He does not look in the state of your actions and deeds.
We have to be aware of being a people who we get nice haircuts, we dress well, we present ourselves to others beautifully.
And so what people see
our bodies, the shape of our bodies, the way we look what people see is beautiful. But what Allah sees,
because Allah does not look to your bodies, and your haircut, and your clothing and your brand name, clothes that you have, and the car that you drive, a lot looks to your hearts, we have to be aware of being people whom when other people look at us, they see something beautiful, but when a law looks at us, he sees something repulsive.
And so today as we speak about the condition of our hearts, we have to listen and think about our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala.
The reason why our hearts
sometimes become corrupted, is because our relationship with Allah becomes corrupted.
And the relationship with Allah subhanaw taala often begins to fade. When we see our relationship, like a transaction.
We think Allah ordered me to pray so I'm just going to pray to get it over with
or we think even beyond that, I prayed. So now Allah has to give me something.
We think of our relationship with the laws of transaction, we give him something he gives us something back.
That's not the attitude of the believer in their relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada.
The prophet SAW along with it will send them did not fulfill the obligations that Allah placed upon him and the obligations on him or more than the obligations on us. He did not fulfill these obligations just because it's a transaction between him and Alon, but he fulfills the obligations out of his deep love for Allah subhana wa tada
the prophets of Allah were recently used to make to Allah in yes Allah will help them are you head book? Well, the aniline you believe only
along the journey along the journey, that I had met em enough EMF see Wiley
women and mad women and metal barons
of our profits on the low end instead of in the dark they used to make
you say all I asked for your love
and the love of those who knew love
and the love of anything that will bring me to your love.
And then he would say, Oh Allah
make my love for you greater than my love for myself
and make my love for you greater than my love for my family
and make my love for you greater than my love for cold water.
The Arabs would use this parable of the cold water because
Obviously they lived in the desert. And imagine someone stranded in the desert,
not being able to have water.
And think of the person's mouth becoming crusted and the type of dehydration and fear
and deep desire a person would have in that state for a cold water.
And the profits a little low, I said, I was asking a lot to make his love for a lot greater than the love of anyone for cold water.
And so we have to develop our love with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And often when we talk about loving Allah subhanho wa Taala. The way that we approach this topic
is that we say to people look at the Sahaba and what they used to do, look at what they used to do, out of their love of Allah azza wa jal.
And the problem with that approach, even though it's an important approach, is that sometimes the youth amongst us and even the elders, when we think about the stories of the companions of the Prophet,
we think of also haven Lumi, giving away everything he owned for Allah.
They are interpreted by people as being fairy tales.
These are stories of another era, they don't matter to us.
But the reality is that we don't understand this story, because we didn't understand their mindset.
And if we understood their mindset of why they loved the last panel to it so dearly, then those stories would have so much more meaning for us.
Because those people understand and understood, what is the relevance of wealth compared to what Allah subhanaw taala has given us? And what is pain in this world compared to the delights
and the serenity
of Allah subhana wa tada that Allah azza wa jal can provide.
And what is the vastness of this life compared to the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
If we understood that mindset of others, it would transform us from being people who are fulfilling our duties, out of obligation, or out of custom
to fulfilling our EDA to Allah subhanaw taala our worship of allies or just because we have a deep seated love for Allah subhanho wa Taala and understanding of Allah subhana wa tada Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, for Sophia Tila will be omen. You're in Rome where you had una
that Allah will bring forth a people whom he loves them, and they love him. And notice how Allah Subhana Allah precedes you.
He loves them, and they love him.
Because it's impossible for us to love Allah subhanho wa Taala until we understand that he loves us. So Allah began by he loves them.
And they love the loss of Hannah Tyler. When you understand the love Allah subhanaw taala has for his servants. This is what opens the door for you having love of Allah azza wa jal.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Hadith glitzy that I belong where I've done nada gibreel when Allah loves this servant, he calls out to Jubilee. And he says, Yeah, Jubilee in India.
And he says, Oh, God, I love this person.
And so God loves this person to why does Allah call out to God, if Allah loves a person, right, as he tells you, me, and I love this person.
And the scholars, they say, some Hello, and a person is in love. They don't want to keep that love to themselves. If a person loves someone, they want to tell the world that they love this person.
And so Allah subhanho data tells me that he loves this person. And then gibreel loves this person. And then jabin calls out to the angels in the heavens, and says, Allah loves this person so loved him, and they love him too. And then the prophets on the lines and it says, and then the acceptance of this person comes on the earth. But the people on earth who love Allah subhanho wa Taala develop naturally unnatural love for this person. All of a sudden their hearts open to this person. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala loves this person, the angels love this person, and it descends upon them.
And then the Prophet somewhere along where are they using them said that a lot. So just says
could you send Allah the estimate will be what also levy absolutely Hi rubia.
He said if I love him for loss of habitat, he loves this person.
He becomes the seeing with which he sees the hearing with
She hears the walkie with which he walks. Allah Subhana Allah protects this person is with them in every moment of their life protects them from evil.
He's with them in every step of their life.
They're in the company have a loss of handle data throughout their life so much so it's described that he is there seeing by which they see in the hearing by which they hear. When we hear these ahaadeeth sometimes we think to ourselves,
the amount of people that Allah loves is so small, we can't be one of them.
Yes, Allah when he loves people, they get this connection to our last panel data, but we are so far away from that, and we're not included in that. But read the Quran. What does Allah say throughout the Quran? How often does a lot of talk about his love for different categories of people throughout the Quran? will love your heavenly mercy Nene? Allah loves those who do good in the law you hang one with our cutie and Allah loves those who rely upon him. Will long your head Mousavi and Allah loves those who are patient will love the city and Allah loves those who are just lovely your head when we're talking. Allah loves those who are conscious of them and aware of him
will level your head with toe I mean, he loves those who repent to him and turn back to him. below your head will motoko hearing Allah loves those who purify themselves. The doors of Allah's love are wide open.
Look at the how these could see the profits in the long run. He will send them said ma deli when he and mentor who will help whoever shows indemnity to my friend, the friend of Allah subhanaw taala Allah says, I have declared war on this person. I've declared war on this person.
What does that mean? That Allah Subhana Allah declares war upon this person,
that Allah subhanho wa Taala has a jealous love for this person. He loves them so much, that when other people are enemies to that person, a lot become so offended by a he declares war against them.
Now but you're thinking to yourself, that we'll have a law that's something beyond us. We can't possibly be from the LDL of a lot.
Well, you know, some people miss the size, the concept of being a friend of Allah subhanho data is just being something so esoteric, that nobody can can arrive at this point.
But what does Allah subhanaw taala say about his elderly? How
about the friends of Allah subhana wa Tada. Allah in Alia Allah Hina hope when it was
a lady in her arm and what can we attack when
he says indeed Veolia of Allah, the Friends of a law, there is no fear upon them, nor shall they grieve. Who are they?
What can we act upon? They believe, and they have Taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And the scholars sometimes when they describe taqwa, they say taqwa is not that the person is perfect.
It's just that the person's good outweighs their evil,
that they strive to make their good, a little bit better than the evil they produce.
So kinda, it's not that difficult for us to be included in this category. We shouldn't place it beyond us.
And the prophets of the Lord, as it says, in his head, the frequency that Allah says, Let's
Like we talked about, how can we be the friend of a law then here's the description, here's the here's the strategy to become the friend of the law. He says, nothing draws you closer, more than fulfilling your obligations. The obligations that Allah has given us, fulfilling those is what gives you the greatest amount of ability to get closer to a law. When one is
able, and my servant doesn't stop drawing closer to me with voluntary acts, voluntary goodness, until he enters this category that I love him. When I love him, I become the hearing with which he hears the scene with which he sees the hand with which he strikes and the feet with which he walks. When sir Lenny Davina went in this die then you know or even and if he asked me anything I will surely give him and if he seeks my protection, I will surely protect him. We have to think and reflect over these ahaadeeth about the fact that Allah Subhana Allah loves us this dearly. How much Allah subhanaw taala loves to servants.
The prophets of Allah says in another head the footsie and Adam in the command outsunny What are jokes any
But also Tula can McCann Arnica? Whenever buddy, Allah says Oh son of Adam, as long as you ask of me and hope in me, I will forgive all of your sins and I do not care. Given the Adam novella
semester for 10 years offer to Lackawanna Valley, he says also Nevada made for your sins which reach the clouds of the sky.
And then you ask of my forgiveness, I will forgive you and I do not care. Less is that will badly I don't care.
I'll forgive all of these sins. You haven't had them? No, no. I tell you, it's any of you probably
cliche and it took me probably have zero. He says all sorted out and were you to come to me, having filled the entire world with sins, but you come to me not having worshipped anything other than me, not having associated in the worship of me, then I will come to you with the same amount of forgiveness. Spent a lot Rama t sebata. v. Allah subhana wa tada says, My Mercy supersedes my anger. This needs to open our hearts to understand how much less power the adult loves us.
In another head, the footsie Allah subhanaw taala says, children
wonder comes close to me a hand span I will come close to him in arm's length woman tell any of you.
And whoever comes closer to me in arm's length, I will come closer to him and wingspan.
And he says we're in the UK by the end of
October to add hot water. And if he comes to me walking, I will go to him running.
Reflect just over that statement of Allah subhanaw taala that he will come to you running? Have we ever thought
what can we possibly do to be worthy of a law coming running to us?
The profits in the long way to send them said the first heaven semat dunia the first heaven. Within this first Heaven is this world in this galaxy. And everything we know is within the first half of the first heaven compared to the second heaven. The Prophet said is like a ring that was thrown into the desert. How small is the ring how vast is the desert? He said in the second heaven compared to the third is again like a ring thrown into the desert, and the third to the fourth and the fourth to the fifth, on and on until the seventh heaven. And he said the seventh heaven compared to the throne of Allah is like a ring that was thrown into the desert. How small and insignificant are we? And yet
a loss of hundreds either because of the strength in the greenness of his lungs will come to us running if we go to him walking.
The Prophet sallallahu send him says in another heavy
Enza Nora lsms dunya Hey Neha, for us in Leyland alpha, Allah Subhana Allah descends to the lowest heavens, during the last third of every night's
not just not in Ramadan. This is all throughout the year. The Prophet says Allah descends to the lowest heaven and he thinks somehow to Allah when someone wants something from you.
Are you going to go to him?
Or someone 30 minutes away from you want something from you? Are you going to drive 30 minutes for him? Or are you going to say he wants something from me he should come to me.
Allah subhanaw taala comes down to the lowest heaven in a way that befits His Majesty.
And then what does he say? has been most often for opera admins or even federal body?
Is there anyone seeking my forgiveness that I may forgive them?
Is there anyone asking for repentance that I may accept the repentance?
Allah subhana wa tada is asking us
if we want to be forgiven
halaman set an infarct Leo, is there anyone asking of me anything that I may give him?
And he descends to the lowest heaven to ask us
if we want his forgiveness,
and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that he couldn't be leader. And this happens every night.
Every night Even though he is the king subhanho wa Taala and he is the master and we are the week and we are this small.
He comes down and asks us
Is anyone seeking of my forgiveness that I may forgive them?
This should put in our hearts a modesty,
a feeling of shame. Allah subhanaw taala loves this this much.
How much do we love Allah subhana wa tada
the profits are low. I said
the last couple times
the Allies audiences in the legendary esteem and I'm at your
mercy message from
he says the Allah subhanaw Medina says to the angels,
that I feel shame, I feel modesty
that my servant raises his hands and he calls me and he says, My Lord, my Lord, the I turned him away with nothing.
And the angels say to Allah Subhana Allah Allah this person is not deserving of your forgiveness. And Allah subhanaw taala says well I can the taqwa
he says by I'm deserving of his taqwa undeserving of his consciousness, and I am deserving of granting forgiveness.
It's not amazing
for us as servants to feel shame in front of Allah subhanaw taala for the one that is beneath for the child to feel shame in front of the parents, for the servant to feel shame in front of the master.
But it is entirely amazing that the master that the King of kings, but the Lord of the heavens and the earth,
feel shame and modesty in front of us.
Understanding this needs to enter our hearts. So when the last time with Allah tells us to pray five times a day, this is not a transaction.
There is nothing you can do to repay Allah subhanho wa Taala what you do when you turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala
is beyond the minimum.
We should feel that sense of modesty when we turn to Allah subhanaw taala and beg from him from the deepest depths of our hearts because we should have loved for him because of the amount of love that he has somehow know what Tyler has for us.

brothers and sisters our days are limited in Ramadan. And our days in this world are limited. And we don't know what tomorrow will bring. And we don't know if the opportunity we have today is going to exist tomorrow. So as your brother I'm just asking everyone and myself first and foremost, to use whatever time and ability we have in this month to turn to Allah subhanaw taala and if you're at home spend some time in solitude with the laws of religion. When was the last time you spoke to Allah so much
and I know inshallah, in our prayers. Of course we have to speak in Arabic and macdon Arabic but outside of your spot out you can speak to a lot any language. Once the last time you turn to Allah and spoke to him and complain to him and begged of him.
Allah Subhana Allah gives this shade to the person in solitude, who sheds tears because of their fear of Allah subhana wa tada we need to revive this inner life and improve our connection in our hearts with Allah subhana wa tada in the lahoma it gets someone out in the lobby even living in urban or solo and he was sitting with steamer along with Sonny wasallam Allah says you know what to do you know, how have you been?
