This is what our talks this night and in the few nights coming
all about how we can get the bridge out for loss, how we can gain the show believes in Allah and His message and His Messenger are salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
From the left from the lower salatu salam, ala, Muhammad shadowline rulership if you're not
sure when the Mohammed announced a whole lot of sorrow
tonight's lecture bots in pursuit of Allah's pleasure.
I would like to begin
by quoting a verse of the Quran, according a hadith and promises to them.
So that we have in mind exactly what we're talking about during this weekend.
And in What does Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala His pleasure and what would should be our attitude towards
gaining Allah subhanho wa Taala His pleasure and being willing to sacrifice for the sake of getting a list of hunter with Dallas Blizzard
Hello subhana wa tada says in the Quran,
one of the lot why the love momineen and we're moving at Jeannette integrity mentality Helen Hart, Kadena, try my second play about the pigeon. pigeon net in AD AD.
What is one middle light there's a whole foods a lot in Hello subhana wa tada
Allah subhana wa Allah says Allah has promised to the believing men and to the believing women.
gardens through which rivers flow to the world they're in
and beautiful mansions and the gardens of Adam.
the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala the pleasure of Allah subhana wa tada is greater and that is indeed the supreme success.
here Allah subhana wa tada after mentioning that Allah subhana wa tada is going to bestow upon the believers, the believing men and women, the reward agenda and the pleasures of jedna.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says it's a pleasure coming from Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala His pleasure
is greater than all of them.
When they try to explain this verse,
you can see that it's almost difficult you cannot add anything to what Allah subhana wa tada has said,
and you take all of those bounces of gentlemen.
But the bounty of having a lesson how to wattana please with you. And attaining Allah subhana wa Tada. His pleasure is greater and more wonderful than any other kind of bounty any other kind of pleasure that you could ever receive. In fact in another in a Hadith of the prophets I send them
the prophets followed also muscle loss in them in the length of Article Asana for the agenda. Yeah, hello, Jin.
una una casa de PUE. Hello, hello de
una woman Allah. Nada. Baka da da, da man. I'm 30 I hadn't been helping
of them in Zurich.
Well, Fallujah, Iraq, with a U shape of the limits of the Romans Eric. They are full of Hello and welcome. Ridwan.
Swati Bardo of
provinces Selim has told us that Allah subhanho wa Taala will say to the people of gentlemen, or people of gender
and they will say at your beck and call at your service our Lord and Allah subhana wa Tada.
I will say to them, Are you pleased?
And they'll say, how should we not be pleased? When you've given us something that you've never given that you have not given to any of your creations?
And then the and then Allah subhanho wa Taala will say to them, can I give you something that is, shall I not give you something that is even better than that?
And the response is, oh, Lord, what could be better than that? And then I'll let some kind of worked out I will say to them, I will grant you My pleasure. And I shall never afterwards be angry with you.
This is what Allah subhana wa Tada. This is the conversations and take place between Allah subhanho wa Taala. And those believers who are already in Jimena,
Allah subhanho, wa Taala is pleasure, the fact that he will never be angry with them again, never be displeased with them ever again, this is actually the greatest reward any human could ever achieve, that any human could ever seek.
And this is the topic that the brothers have chosen for this
we can see the attaining the pleasurable lifespan with that
attaining this pleasure chaining this sought after goal which is greater than any other thing that anyone could imagine.
And from the beginning,
at the outset, one of the main aspects that we must always keep in mind
is actually to have the proper understanding or I should say, the proper proper belief about Allah subhana wa tada and attaining Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleasure. Because if you study the history
of this creation, you study the history of mankind and you see one of the most common ways in which the chiffon has been able to live mislead mankind
and a way which has shipped on has been able to take people to a situation where they are hedonism, Allah subhana wa tada where they do not worry about whether or not they are pleasing Allah subhana wa tada or whether or not they're displeasing Allah subhana wa Tada.
And this is where a shift one takes the person into a situation where he feels safe and secure, that are less than Hello Todd is pleased with him that alesund handled with God and loved him, regardless of what he does.
And you will find this belief existed among the Jews exists among the Christians, and unfortunately, it developed also among the Muslims.
With respect to the, to the Jews and the Christians, Allah subhanho wa Taala for example, tells us in the Quran of quality Do you who do in the sutra know of no lay what have Bo
Salima you are revoking the de novo. But uncompassionate amendment,
your pieroni manjusha were you at the moment
when he let him move to similar words he will or will not be in a woman when you leave him
alone. subhanho wa Taala says that the Jews and the Christians, they say that we are the sons of the beloved the children and the Beloved of Allah Subhana Allah
and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells the prophets I send them to respond to them.
To tell them then why does olufsen handle with dollar watch? Hello listen hen with Darla, punish you for your sins. In fact you are just among the creation among the human beings that Allah subhana wa tada has created.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives whomever He wills, any punishments whomever He wills, and I'll let them handle with Donna has the dominion and the rule over the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them, whatever is between them and unto him the journeys and
so in this verse we see that is not by our decree declaration that we are the Beloved of Allah subhanho wa Taala if we claim that we are
and if people whom Allah subhana wa Taala loves what is actually all nothing handwork dial up for forgive and reward whoever whoever he will, and Alyssa Hannah with the Allah will forgive or will punish whomever He wills and no one has any control over our lesson Hannah with that.
And as I said the same, the same kind of belief.
The same kind of belief has spread, even among also among the Muslims.
That they get to a point where they believe that
once they are
This means that all of our data is going to enter them into gender
regardless of what they do afterwards, regardless of the actions, regardless of their behavior towards the left 100 with that.
And in fact, it is widespread even if you if you study the Muslim woman like today, it is widespread among many people that once a person says a lot, nothing is going to harm his faith. Nothing can take him outside of the fold of Islam.
And obviously, this is a very dangerous belief.
And even among unfortunately, even among those people who are active in the field of Gallup,
we find sometimes the same kind of concept being spread
concept, which actually in reality really comes from the Christians.
That God, for example, loves
all of us. And in fact, there was a book
that I was just reading, written by a Muslim author who has written a number of books
that basically have a dour nature.
And in this book, The title of the book is the problem of evil.
The author wrote,
that love is not conditional,
as if you only love this, again, this is from a Muslim author. Now this Muslim author, I should point out, I used to be a devout Christian. And I guess some of the Christian beliefs have not been filtered out completely. So the person wrote, God's love is not conditional. And if he only loves us, if we do this or that
God's love for us does not Evan flow, it is unchangeable. God never ceases to love us, no matter what we do.
And then later also the same author wrote, remember, Allah hates no person that he has made but he hates sin and evil. Allah does not love in our way, but his love, without limits.
And as I said, if we want to be serious about the question of attaining our most pleasure,
then we have to realize from the beginning,
that we are in a situation where depending on our intention, our choices and our actions,
we have to realize that we may be attaining a less pleasure or we may be attaining a love display. In fact, in every action that we take, every action that we take may be an action which is pleasing to Allah subhana wa tada or it could be an action which is displeasing to Allah Subhana with that, and as I said, the real motivation or the real
action actions inshallah leading us to the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala has to start from this point we have to realize,
we have to realize that alesund hana with data has created all of this creation all of mankind, you know, lesson Hana looked at and love some people from among this creation, and alyssum head without I hate some people from among description. And that is all part of the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala and no one can define for Allah, what he loves what the Haitians are,
this is something only Allah subhana wa tada can know.
Now, the philosophers and thinkers, especially the Christian thinkers, and unfortunately, some Muslims,
they think about the law without referring to what Allah has revealed about himself.
And so therefore, they say, Allah, or God is all good, God is all loving. And so therefore, it's not possible that Allah subhanho wa Taala would hate his creatures.
And actually, it is if you ask me this kind of a very
arrogant, I should say, maybe another arrogant stance that mankind takes the no matter what they do.
No matter what kind of actions they perform, no matter how evil and how filthy they may be in their life, they claim that Allah loves them, regardless of what they do.
And that this kind of belief,
this kind of belief should spread among the Muslims or this kind of attitudes.
And in not realizing not thinking about the fact that every moment we go out every action that we perform, we can either be performing an action that will bring us closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala make us more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala make a list and handle with Allah more pleased with us, or could be an action that takes us further away from Alyssa Pena with that
Unless you handle without in many places in the Quran,
Allah subhana wa dadas clearly reminded us and shown us that there are people who will look and handle without it does not look
and we have to take those verses seriously we have to think about the ramifications of what does it mean that Allah subhana wa tada does not love those.
And we have to do our best to make sure that we are not from amongst us. For example,
Allah subhana wa tada says,
well, lo though you have vocal covering a theme,
Allah subhana wa Dallas's Allah loves not every ungrateful and sinful person.
And in many verses, no Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala begins with hola hola you have in the La La you have.
And in this verse, For example,
in this particular verse that I just quoted,
just to make maybe the issue more relevant today, the problems that we're facing nowadays, this verse from comes from sort of Baccarat, and this verse comes exam or these few words, come at the end of a verse, or at the end of a passage, in which you'll have some header with data is talking about the river
in which Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about interest, and how people try to make an excuse for taking interest, saying that it is similar to kind of trade one must have handled with the other says that he is wiped out any kind of benefit or a blessing to interest any increases.
And that is when Allah subhanho wa Taala says these words will no later Bakula, comforting I think
this is the this is now a practice, unfortunately, that many Muslims are getting into nowadays. And this is a reflection
when people take this matter so lightly, that they're willing to do these kinds of Acts. This is a reflection that we are not taking the level of what the Allah Allah subhanaw taala has pledged you're seriously to the extent that we should be taking because it is actually in this passage on which almost $100 talking about Riba that Allah subhana wa tada tells us clearly, that he does not love these kind of people who engage in this kind of sin.
Although somewhat Allah also says, will appeal lower resource to include loafing the law will Catherine
Allah subhana wa tada says that see obey Allah and the messenger and if you turn away then should know that Allah subhana wa tada does not love the disbelievers.
Allah subhanho wa Taala and this verse, And for example, in the other verses, Allah subhanho wa Taala did not say that he does not love COVID
like that quotes that I quoted from that book,
and it lets you handle without it did not say if Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to say that was the truth. Allah subhana wa tada could and all these facets say that he doesn't love Cooper. He doesn't look good. He doesn't look good. But instead instead Allah subhanho wa Taala says, saving the lives of caffeine and lift your hand without a disease not love the disbelievers. Allah subhana wa tada is talking about people will listen when with Allah says we're low like below the mean, unless there's not love the wrong doors. doesn't just say Allah doesn't love the wrongdoing, committing a boom. But Allah subhanho wa Taala does not love wrongdoers
also in different hedgies the process around just trying to take some examples to make it very clear to us that we are in a situation where we could be earning the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala or we could be earning the displeasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala one example from Hadith and promises.
That I would like to mention, the prophet SAW Selim has told us
in the lodge, in the lazada, your little cooler alameen dunya dounia Jacqueline Villa hero
promises Selim said that Verily Allah hates every atom in the dunya everyone who is either more knowledgeable than Jr, and ignorance of the hereafter.
This is a description from the province I tell them of the kind of people whom Allah subhanho wa Taala hates.
And it is clear this head is the province has told us that Allah subhanho wa Taala hates these two.
And this is by the way, another, I think, very relevant example for us nowadays.
continue to stress among our youth, the importance of getting education that is related to the junior and
We keep neglecting the fact of the importance of knowing about to hear us.
If we want to get a list of Hanoi, Dallas pleasure if we're seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala we must be aware of this fact, that the one who knows this dunya but it's ignorance of the Hereafter, the one who works and lives and sacrifices for this dunya and doesn't realize that it is the hereafter that he should be living for. This is one of those people whom Allah subhanaw taala hates, well, let's abandon what Allah has also made it very clear to us that there's a big difference. And you cannot compare those people who are living, living their lives, to earn the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala trying to earn the pleasurable listen Hanwha tada and those
people who are living their lives, heedless of Allah subhanho wa Taala. neglectful will listen handle with Allah and living their lives under the shade of the anger. Let's have fun with that. Alyson henwick data says up a minute, a minute divided one a light coming down is suffering and Allah will not Whoa, whoa, Johanna will this
Allah subhana wa Dionysus is the one
who follows who is seeking the good pleasure of Allah subhana wa Tada. Is that one is he like the one who brings upon himself to anger? Well listen, Hannah with Darla, and who's a bit of his abode is the Hellfire, a wolf will refuge. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has made it very clear to us
that there are different kinds of people. There are those kinds of people who are seeking the pleasure of wellness and with that,
and there are those people who are seeking or they are earning, earning the anger, the wrath, and the hatred of illness.
And for us, as I said, the question should be very clear.
We in our life to take this very seriously, recognizing the fact that there are two distinct, very distinct kinds of people. It isn't the fact that almost no one loves every human being automatically. It is in the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves everyone who calls himself or claims to be a Muslim.
But there are people who are earning the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And there are people who are just earning the disposables fine with that. And in fact, one of the one of the criticisms that many times is Christian missionaries,
and propagandists spread about Islam. They say that in Islam, you don't have to have a personal God.
The individual doesn't have some kind of personal relationship with us and with that,
and actually, that couldn't be further from the truth.
In Christianity, you don't have a personal gun. Cousin Christianity once you believe, and that copper that they believe in that, you know, God sent His Son to be sacrificed for the sins of mankind. So
once you believe in that your sins are forgiven, you are from the beloved of God, no matter what you do.
So you don't even have to worry about how you behaved towards God, you are saved.
You are now saying so who cares? Even how you behave towards Allah subhanho wa Taala
What do you have the the Muslim, realize that there is a direct relationship between himself and his actions, and his Lord.
And he knows that everything he's doing a lot ahead without is watching or listening. I know 1000s aware.
And he knows that there's always every moment there's opportunity to get even closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And to gain the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa
and in fact, if he just thinks about Allah subhana wa
if he just thinks about who Allah subhanho wa Taala is,
it should be it should be inconceivable that a human being
should say that he believes in Allah
that He knows what data is. You know what I mean by that he knows
about the law, his one and his attributes and so forth.
And he that he claims to believe in Allah subhana wa tada and at the same time, he is not working
to come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and earn the pleasure of Allah.
This is inconceivable.
Because for one thing.
For one thing, if you know about the loss of Hannah Medina
you will know that every bounty every black
every aspect of your life,
everything that you have actually has come from Allah Subhana. With that.
And it has a lot to do with that it was giving you all of that. And it is almost man with Donna who has given you the ability and the opportunity
to get Jenna
to get this lamb in this life, to get real happiness in this life and to get also eternal happiness.
And it is natural for human beings.
If someone does good to him,
someone is paying for him.
Someone is very polite to him very generous with him it is it is natural for human being, for that kind of action to engender some love between the two of them. That is one of the reasons why it's natural for human beings to look up to their parents and be appreciative
of their parents for everything, their mother giving them birth and bringing them up and so forth.
Yet all of those things that you can think of cannot compare
with what they do with what a human being owes towards the listener with that.
If someone is willing to work and sacrifice to please their mother and their father because of the obligation that they feel towards them, and the gratitude that they feel towards them.
What about the gratitude that they should feel towards?
what it was obligation that they should feel towards?
How can this person when he is conscious of this fact, and really thinking about the fact how can this person go out and do something that he knows is displeasing to others?
People have a difficult time to do something if they know it's displeasing to their parents.
has been husbands and wives when they have strong love for each other.
They feel very shy to do something that they know that their spouse doesn't like.
Yet when we behave towards almost 100 with that,
well, I'll let her handle without knows everything that we do. And our relationship towards Allah subhanho wa Taala should be well above and beyond those kinds of relationships.
This should make us be very shy,
to at anytime, anytime do something that would be displeasing to us.
So when we remember all of that data, we keep the record or the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala with us, and it should drive us to always be thinking about whether or not we're pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala were attending Allah subhanho wa Taala His pleasure or not.
But even beyond that
there is an aspect
of our ibadah or var anyone we think about what is our purpose in life?
Well, my fella to gender will insanely boon Allah subhanho wa Taala has told us this our purpose in life, that he created not jinn and mankind except to worship Him.
And we make the statement is this, the Shahada, la la la la
these aspects also.
And in that we believe that Allah is our Illa.
Our Illa means what it should mean.
What it should mean is that this being that we believe in this being that we're testifying to, as the only law, this means that this being should be the first thing and the most beloved thing in our hearts
should be the one that we worship, and and also not the one that we love, fully with our hearts.
So again, it's not just a matter of, of gratitude. It's not just a matter of realizing
our obligation towards Allah subhanaw taala. But beyond that there should be in the hearts of everyone who claims to be a believer.
There should be a very strong love in their heart for lots of fun with that.
And when we think about
this topic, this title in pursuit of Allah's pleasure,
we should realize that there's a very strong relationship between kindling that love for love to handle with God.
And really having that love for Allah subhana wa God in our heart and getting the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala in return
because is that love for Allah subhanho wa Taala is truly in our hearts and we love Allah subhanho wa Taala above everything else
and really make him the last in our life, the board and
then our life will be all around this aspect, all around trying to please Allah subhanho wa Taala and attaining Allah subhanho wa Taala pleasure.
And in fact if you take that, that phrase
you take this phrase, Allah pleased with him.
And you look to see how Allah subhanho wa Taala has used it in the Quran
you'll find that this phrase is used five times in the book.
And for those five times,
Allah subhana wa adatto
follows up those words.
With the same words are the last line Don't worry, I'll go on
that unless you've had a look, Don is pleased with them. And they are pleased with him.
Because as I said, the the gendering of love, the acceptance of Allah subhanho wa Taala as the real ILA and what that implies
and the trust that will develop between you and Allah Subhana was that
the love and the trust and the bond that will develop between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala will be such that you are pleased with whatever Donna has asked of you. Whatever Allah subhana wa tada has decreed for you. And in return Allah subhanho wa Taala
is pleased with you.
And I'm not talking just in the Hereafter, but also in this life. And those verses in two of them in particular, it is very clear that all this man with dialogue is talking about this kind of relationship existing in this life
that I'm left handed with God is pleased with them and they are pleased with Allah subhanho wa Taala
For example, let's move on with Donna says what's up the phone and I will do in a minute and Mahajan Dina will I'm sure we'll have enough room the attorney
will have enough vs. Danny what are the low items?
What was what was in the home Jeanette integer Rita Helen har. Har de Deena fear of dirty campos de la z. Allah subhana wa tada says that the for the service bonello alone those who first entered into Islam
from the Mahajan and from from from the unsolved and those who follow them in goodness,
unless well pleased with them, and they are well pleased with a look.
And then after stating that fact the list of hemodialysis and promise for them, or Gordon's agenda in which reverse roles and in fact, after every event that assume that after we are done when we hear the event
and repeat them to the Muslim part of what we say after the event is we say ready to build a rock band and I am pleased with Allah as my Lord. I am pleased with Allah My Lord will be Mohammed in Solon and with Mohammed
messenger will bill Islami Dina and with Islam as the dean.
So this plan it is versus in this point shows very clearly that actually
is a clear relationship between gaining the upper hand or gaining all the time which Allah pleasure and you yourself, getting to that point where you really take a lot as your
as your my boy you put on look man with data, above everything else, you are pleased with a look man with Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala would be pleased with you. That is the real, that is the real kind of Amen. The real kind of belief that all of us should try to develop and it is the kind of belief that will lead to Allah subhanaw taala being pleased with us.
As Allah subhanho wa Taala has mentioned a number of characteristics in the Quran. Of those people whom he does not love. Allah subhanho wa Taala has also mentioned
Number of characteristics of those people whom he loves.
And so therefore,
we should look in the Quran and see what are those characteristics. And we should try to see in ourselves whether or not we meet those characteristics or not.
And if we're serious about gaining pleasure, if we're serious about having a left hand with God and loving us and being happy with us, then we should be very serious about those verses in the Quran, in which Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us, he loves these people. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us he doesn't love these people.
We should be very serious about looking through both the characteristics of both of these groups and making sure that we have the characteristics of those people whom Allah subhanaw taala loves and not those people whom Allah subhanho wa Taala this loves
and let me just mention
a few of them briefly inshallah.
For example, let's begin with Allah says, in the law you have been most in in
Verily Allah loves the most in need.
And one of the characteristics of a son or one of the characteristics of the musty mean? Well, there's a general one category,
of course, is the as described by the problem homosassa Lim and it says that you worship Allah subhana wa tada as if you are actually seeing all this man with data.
And if you cannot reset, then you worship Him, knowing that Allah subhana wa tada is seeing you.
I mean, this is the level of the sun that the prophet SAW Selim had described in the hadith of gibreel.
And even if we just take this one point, that the pro system described in this video, all of us here, we're all Muslims, within Muslims, probably most of us, many of us for years, maybe since birth.
And we probably have read this verse and sort of to vokra many times, that Allah loves the mausoleum.
And we probably read this hadith of gibreel, many times, in which he describes, what does that
get? How serious do we take this issue of having a lot to handle with our love and pleasure?
Then we've actually taken this heady process and really ask ourselves whether or not we fit that description to the boat.
Do we really worship Allah subhana wa tada as if we are seeing Allah Subhana without in front of us?
And at the very least, if we are not at that point, are we actually really worshiping Allah subhana wa, tada, knowing that Allah is watching us and seeing us.
And not just seeing us, of course, physically on the other level, but what is in our hearts.
When we go to the toilet, for example,
how much it was a lot, I really concentrated on what we're seeing in the salon.
And how much of our salon is our mind is going off into other things.
And if we know that all of our data
is seeing us and hearing us and knows what's in our hearts.
And this is the way we perform our slot
then we have to question ourselves whether or not we're really from the masini
and if we know that I love the washing in
then we should do our best to strive to be among the most in
this topic that we have for this weekend. It's not just some kind of theoretical or academic discussion of in pursuit of a less pleasure
not the the point behind this, that's not the purpose behind it.
But it is inshallah to motivate us
to realize what pleasure is how great that is, how important that is, and how that opportunity is there for us.
And to think about what it is that we should be doing.
To get all this pleasure to be among those people whom Allah subhanaw taala
and one of those things, as well as for HANA with Silas Phyllis, Phyllis used to be from the martini.
And the martini and also in a more general category also includes those people who try when they do
When he acts
when they do any act, they tried to do it in the best way. Of course the best way from *tier perspective what is the proper way to do something with the right intention, with kindness with generosity and so forth.
This is also part of description of esa
for loss of Hannah was diagnosed and says, In the light of Butoh being white have been Maputo herring.
Allah subhanho wa Taala love those who repent. And Allah Subhana Allah loves those who purify themselves.
And in fact, in headaches that I'm sure you're all familiar with as the province that some
of the province, the province has elements described to us how pleased Allah subhana wa tada is, with the repentance of human beings.
You know, the head is about the person who was out in the desert and lost all of his belongings in his camel. And he sat there to wait until death came to him.
And he slept, when he woke up, all of his cameras and possessions were
in front of him there. And of course, he was so
and so pleased and so excited
about the situation even Steven even made a statement of coffee and he was so pleased and so sad.
And it because he's nothing and catching what he's saying. And the province of cinema is telling us that actually allows pleasure with the human being,
when he repents is greater than the pleasure of that man when he got his positions back.
And that's if you just think about this, this aspect alone.
that a lot of handle with Donna is leaving the door open to us, us weak human beings who commit sins over and over again.
Allah subhanho wa Taala leaves the door open for us to repent to him. And not only does that wipe away the sin that we committed, but the act of repentance is another way that we can please the last panel.
And this is something that
we take in our lives
and in the sins that we commit.
How many times do we seriously think about them and repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala and mend our ways and do our best to change.
If we consider and keep in mind, how beloved that is told us man with that, how please
we will be to Allah subhanho wa Taala this close inshallah should be a driving force for us to always be repenting from the sins that we are committing,
saying the low octane, Allah subhanho wa Taala loves this, the people have stuck one.
And one of the descriptions of the people who talk a lot
is that they put some kind of like a barrier between them and the actions which are clearly pleasing to us.
I mean, clearly displeasing to Allah.
And he those things that are haram displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala they don't even get close to them, they make a kind of barrier between them and those actions which are displeasing to Allah. So
these are a kind of people from Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us in the Quran, that he loves is
that our attitude nowadays
and if we can find, if we can find 50 Allah saying something is haram in one sentence, hello, that should be sufficient for us to do
and no doubt is left anymore that we can we can do that kind of
Any kind of argument is given for something to be helpful, we'll be willing to accept it and do that.
We should be leaving the Dell for matters.
Something is doubtful if we want to be forgotten, we should be leaving those matters. And we should worry about what we're giving up of this dunya
we shouldn't be worrying about what we're giving up for this Jr. If it means pleasing all the channels because when you think about getting to duck those duck matters, it is usually because people don't want to give up something as as jr
that's why they get into those dumb
wealth which are haraam wouldhave, and so forth.
And we should leave those Delta matters. So that will be among those people whom Allah subhanaw taala is pleased
Well let's head on with Donna also tells us in the last couple months the theme, Allah subhanho wa Taala loves those people who are just
justice in Islam.
The idea of following what is truth What is correct. This is something that is emphasized over and over the forum.
Even if it is something that goes against your nearest relatives,
you have to stand up for what is trust, even if it goes against your own interests. You have to stand up for what is just what is true.
And this is a characteristic that Allah subhana wa tada loves, even when dealing with the Kufa as I said, even if it's related to your closest relatives, you have to stand up for what is just
is an absolute principle in Islam, not something that you can be just today and then tomorrow if it meets your friends you forget about being just but it is the principle that we have to stick to
an old sense
almost Rihanna tala obviously loves those who fight for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah subhanho wa Taala loves those who follow the way of the promise of
Allah subhanho wa Taala loves those
who are loyal to the believers in spirit against the disbelievers and so forth.
And of course, the key to all of this.
The first foundation to all of this to get Allah subhanho wa Taala is love and Allah subhanaw taala is pleasure is the aspect of Eman.
That is the first and most important thing and that is really the dividing line between those whom are those who will not receive any of Allah subhanaw taala pleasure in love and those who are least inshallah will receive some of Allah subhanaw taala pleasure in love. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, a lowly Latina man or woman a Bula Mattila nor will larina kapitolyo moto boots, you know whom in a naughty level Rahmatullah have not even feel solid on Allah subhanho wa Taala says that Allah is the woody and you'll love to handle wilayah
and it has all the implications of support and love and closeness
and loyalty. Allah subhana wa tada says that Allah is the Wali of the believers, he takes them out of darkness into light. And for the disbelievers they have both the false gods, the tyrants, the people who put themselves above others, who take them out of life into darkness. Those are the companions of the Hellfire, and they shall remain there in
so in this verse in the Quran, Allah subhana wa tada told us that the key
and the separating line between those who have at least some, our last run without his pleasure and love and support is this question of immense question of having proper belief.
And we all know that Amen, is something that increases and decreases and it's not something static. And there is also by the way, another aspect of, of our belief that everyone should be conscious of and thinking about, because everyone should be conscious about their own level of demand, and what is happening to their level of demand,
whether it is increasing, whether it is decreasing, whether it is static, and we should always be aware of this, this can affect
the proper Of course, the the correct demand,
or demand man, a man of course, it is most pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
That Amen, in which you fulfill all the obligations of the faith, including putting Allah subhanho wa Taala above everything else, and living your life based on that thing. We always mentioned and we hear throughout the day, Allahu Akbar, Allah is greater, and Allah is greater than anything else.
And I love more important than any other object, any other goal. And this is how we should be living our life based on this principle of a low IQ.
But if we find ourselves
lacking on this point,
and if we find ourselves that we want to be
earning the pleasure, we'll list for Hannah with data, but we always find ourselves fortunately falling short.
And we find ourselves falling, not being able to resist resist temptations and the law of a ship on
We should realize that this is a disease in ourselves.
And that every time we allow ourselves to fall into those temptations or into those sins, or into the web sheds on,
we should realize that this always this means that we are displeasing Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And we should remember it as that fact, not just the question of this is something hom, this is a sin. But we should really be thinking about what does it mean with respect to our relationship to Allah subhanho data.
And we should never in our hearts, no believer, and I don't believe anyone was really any men.
If it keeps reminding himself of the fact that when he is sitting, when he's doing these wrong things, he is displeasing
is worse than displeasing your best friend or your spouse or your parents who are displeasing?
Instead of getting closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala and attaining the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. You are distancing yourself from Alyssa.
That's what it means to sin. That would that's what it means to succumb to these temptations and to succumb to the plus of chiffon.
What is as I mentioned, Al Hamdulillah. And even when you fall into that kind of situation,
does not mean that all things are lost does not mean that there's no hope.
It means yes, you have to change you have to realize what you're doing.
But if you take the effort to turn towards or not to handle with data,
if you take that word to turn through the lens of promises cinemas told us about almost 100 with data if you take the effort to turn just like a hand spent towards Allah subhana wa tada Allah subhana wa tada is going to come to this much.
In other words, it is a matter of you and your heart, realizing what you've done,
realizing whose displeasure
you are earning, and realizing whose pleasure you want to work, and really think about effect.
Really think about the fact that your actions have ramifications for your relationship to Allah subhanho wa Taala
and of a lesson Hanwha tada if you realize who he is, and who what should what should be your relationship to Allah subhanho wa Taala
and constantly remind yourself of that fact. inshallah, you will find yourself turning shell away from displeasing Allah subhanho wa Taala you'll find yourself turning towards Allah subhana wa Tada. And as you turn it towards Allah subhanho wa Taala align His mercy and in his confession,
Allah subhanho wa Taala was turned towards you in an even greater fashion. And as you walk towards Allah subhanho wa Taala I'll listen with data will come to you running.
So this door to gaining a lot of pleasure is open to us.
It is a handler open to us at all times.
But we have to realize what a great we have to realize what a great and important goal it is. We have to give it its proper priority in our life. We have to fill our hearts with the feeling that that is what we want. We want to please Allah subhanho wa Taala
more than anything else,
you could have just taken one step I would have known already what your
address should be the thing that is in our hearts
and inshallah and this weekend conference in jello will be reminded
of the importance of attaining the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala and working towards that goal, and how that goal is shall is open to us and as many steps that are available to us, and He shall easy for us to follow that Allah subhanho wa Taala will be pleased with us in this life and in the Hereafter and in our hearts also we'll have a pleasure
with respect to Allah subhana wa tada will be pleased as all a fan with Allah says no parent will be pleased with Allah subhanho wa Taala and we'll have that mutual pleasure in both this life in the ground.
Which I love that point that was and and for them to have
important something that he wants you to listen to her
brothers and sisters, I know it's been quite long so what I'll do is I'll probably address you after the break, so inshallah I can have a break now. That should be the sharper inshallah and some light snacks for, for you will be studying in about 20 minutes.
If you got any questions or answers, please, sir, if you have any questions, please give them to the brothers and sisters collecting. And once you come in next time, please don't sit on the stairways over here, we're not allowed to do that. There are some rooms upstairs that have been opened up so you can use them challenge o'clock at 20 minutes.
As usual, the questions greatly outnumber the ability to answer them.
I've limited the questions
to removing questions that I felt were not relevant. Further, I'm just forgot to tell you that.
I never take questions that are not related to the, to the lecture time.
I also forgot to tell you that he told me to take as much time as I wanted during the lecture. So I was kind of surprised when I guess that's not telling me that time was over.
So I've tried to choose some questions that were most closely related to the topic.
The first question that appears is why do people ask Allah to guide the Muslims,
when a practicing Muslim would have already been guided by Allah.
And actually, this is the this is the argument that remember Christian making. He said that the Muslims the endless lots
of pain. So they are admitting that they're not alone.
And this is proof that actually they should all come to Christian and all that
stuff. I'm sure you've heard that kind of thing before.
But in reality,
there's different levels of guidance and different kinds of guidance and every moment of the Muslims life or every moment, every moment of human beings life, you need guidance. And when you perform any act, you have to
you have to know that that is halaal it is permissible it is the correct act, it is a quick way of doing it. So in every moment of our life, even after we've received the general guidance of having a man put into our hearts,
we still need guidance for every moment of our life to make sure we're making the right choices and do what is hard to stay away from what the Torah also we need guidance in the sense of increasing our knowledge of what is correct what is wrong, and so forth. So human being until, until his death is never at a point in which he does not need guidance, and even into here up to the kind of guidance, you know, going over the trough and so forth. So
this is the important point that also the Muslim woman is praying, he should remember this fact that he's asking Allah subhanaw taala to guide into the straight path, meaning to keep them along the straight path, the man, Allah is already guiding him to remind him that he should be appreciated the fact that he wants to continue and increase and improve himself along that path. So every time you go to the salon, this is actually another request in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala to even improve yourself on the path of guidance. and protect yourself along that path of guidance and bring yourself closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is one of the things that the person should be
realizing when he is the one his performance.
By the way, I'll try to be brief because of the potential.
The question is, is there anything that Allah
doesn't get pleased or displeased with
and in a sense,
everything or any kind of act can be an act which is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala or an act which is displeasing to others.
The problem that someone has told his the Sahaba that even when when a man has sexual intercourse with his wife, that he will get rewarded from violence and with that, and when he was asked about Ethan, isn't it the case that if he would have fulfilled that need in a wrong way, he would have been earning Allah subhanaw taala
So when you when you do an act, even an act, which is MOBA, an act which is permissible, and a problem, strictly put point of view, the book doesn't say there's anything necessarily good about the act or anything bad about the act. But when you do it with the right intention, you're doing you're doing it knowing that it is mobile, and you're only doing it because you know, it is mobile and you if you if that if it were not mobile food or not permissible to work on you would not have done. So, even this kind of attitude, this kind of attitude can make any kind of act, something which is the kind of above or something which is pleasing to others.
Someone may not be conscious of that kind of effect, or may not have that kind of near intention behind it. As some of the early scholars, they used to talk about sleeping, their intention behind it was to get energy so that they can continue to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and strike for the sake of others. So people just leave because they're tired. So any the Nia behind it, then the conscious consciousness behind it can convert an act which is basically neutral to an act which is pleasing to others.
Similarly, you may do something which is permissible, but your intention behind it
may be something harmful. In other words, the act may outwardly look permissible, but maybe you have some evil intention behind it to harm someone or something. And so therefore, you could take that permissible act and actually make it an act which is displeasing to Allah. So
this question says, if someone is going through an affliction, how does he know whether this is a punishment from Allah subhanho wa Taala or sign that Allah subhana wa, tada loves him? I've heard that the closer you are to Allah subhanaw taala the horrors of the test which you go through, please come.
one of the points that I didn't get to in the lecture, some of the signs that you are inshallah pleasing Allah Subhana was that
to get out of this dunya or to be, you know, getting the goods and the bounces are the wealth of this union, this is not necessarily a sign that is that you are pleasing to us.
In fact, if you are continually disobeying Allah subhanho wa Taala and sitting and Alyssa Pena with God continues to give you in this dunya then the prophets of Allah has called this grudge or is Allah subhana wa tada is taking you step by step to your own punishment.
And at the same time, as the questioner mentioned, one of the aspects when Alyssa Hannah was out and I love the people I looked at Hannah with Donna Simpson put, put them through trial. And if the person is beloved to Allah subhanaw taala, he will face the trial in the proper way. And he will realize that the trial from Allah subhanho wa Taala, he will accept it, he will be pleased with it in the sense that he was accepted and he will respond in the proper way. And that is one of the signs that this is the trial coming from Allah subhanho wa Taala. For the for the person who was beloved to Allah subhana wa, that when the trials comes to him, he accepted and he and he responds
to it in the proper way, but otherwise, in general, it is the anaphor human being, it is not really possible necessarily always to tell whether or not this is the kind of punishment in this dunya or to simply a trial that almost ran without is giving to the believers. However, the important thing is to realize how to respond to it. And it's to realize, for example, if you're afflicted with something, you must respond with patience, you must stay within the limits of the Sharia and responding to it and so forth. This is the most important aspect and in either case, whether it was a kind of punishment, or whether it was a trial for those who love and in either case, if you
respond properly, inshallah it will bring you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Okay, there was a number of questions about what are some of the steps that we can take to bring ourselves closer to Allah subhanaw taala and actually, that's going to be discussed in the
in the seminar and the that's going to be discussed something so, so I didn't cover it and I'm not going to discuss it here because inshallah it will be discussed during the next two days.
This question here says, I feel like a hypocrite when talking to people about Islam as I know that even some of the things I think I
I'm not fooling implementing, Should I continue to speak? Or should I keep quiet?
Well, the problem, then is that if, if you were to keep quiet and everyone wants to keep quiet based on that fact, then I'm sure that everyone would have to keep quiet. Because everyone has some shortcomings, everybody has some, some mistakes. And just because you're committing some mistakes, just doesn't mean that you then do not make Tao and do not do, calling people to Islam ordering good and eradicating evil.
In fact, just that with respect to ordering good and erratic and evil, you have four obligations.
Or you could break it into two, you have the obligation to order other people to do what is right.
And you have the obligation to keep them from doing what is evil. And you also have the obligation to order yourself to do what is right. And you have an obligation to keep yourself from doing what is evil. And these are in some sense kind of mutually independent in the sense that if you are committing a sin,
you should not compound your sin by also then failing to correct other and correct others and advise others. And it is relaxing to just be compounding yourself.
So even if you are committing a sin,
still continue to advise others to stay away from them.
And you should also obviously, you should also advise yourself, because what happens is that when you advise others about expenditure yourself or committing
the actual act of advising or not committing a sin in the act of advising. But what the problem is, you are lessening your influence by the fact that you're also committing this. So you are not maybe bringing about some good because of the examples that you have set. But the actual advising and telling people to do what is right, even when you're not doing yourself. According to the strongest opinion of normal man, as I said, obviously, if it were not the case, that nobody would be ordering, eradicating, you still have the obligation to order good and eradicate evil, even if you yourself are doing some mistakes, even if you yourself are committing the same sin that you are trying to
What are some of the means that
others question here's the What do you do when you have committed sins, and they haunt you. And in other words, you can continue to feel bothered by it by the sin.
this is one of the one of the plots or one of the ways that we shift our window. So you can see from from the ship pile, because the believer should never feel that they are not going to get the mercy or the look.
at that. And when you when you repent
and do your best to repent,
then you should have confidence that Allah Subhana Allah, this team will accept your events as his prompt.
So therefore if you have done you if you've committed a sin, and you have sincerely repented to all this data, you should not allow that sin to continue to work on your mind and to bother you. You know you may continue to do good deeds, that that you are hoping will continue to work without sin or increase your good deeds. But you should not allow that sin that you've done and repented from should not allow it to as the questions that kind of haunt you from continuing to bring yourself closer to Allah subhanaw taala to put yourself in a situation where you feel you'll never get closer to Allah subhana wa tada because of that one sin you committed so far. And in this this trauma ship
on this is the kind of whispering that come from a shutdown that go against the clear evidence from a person. If you have repented and sincerely offended, you can continue to do good deeds to hope that it continues to wipe away the deed that you perform. But you should never allow yourself to get into a situation where
and you feel that you cannot come closer. You cannot come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala because of a sin that you've committed, even shokin COVID if you committed those things in the past, and you're going into alyssum hana with data shall all list of Hanwha data tips, repentance, and accepts people embracing Islam, coming to Islam after years of shifting COVID watch Allah, Allah Subhana
will accept your presence and so therefore there's no reason for you to allow the sin 200 the question
here the question action is making a point
about how to obtain a lot of pleasure and he says, you have to refer to it to the authentic sooner the problems of the limb,
we must be the last 100 without it by sending the boy following the example of the problem of societal
tribalism handleless. Allah
says in the Quran, and it's one of the points I didn't get to when he
was running with data. So the problem sources include input from Allah,
Allah says, the father says to them,
to tell the people if you truly love Let's run with Allah, then follow me. And I'll let them kind of want to Allah will love you in return and forgiveness.
And it shouldn't be the case that if someone really claims the level of concern with data, then you should desire also in return the level of subpoena without
the question here is kind of a three part.
Question. How many times can one repent? And how does one keep from repeating the sins? And how exactly did the ashes of retesting work?
Basically, any, when you when you refer to Allah subhanho, wa Taala,
repenting to Allah Subhana, WA tada does not necessarily imply that you're never going to do that sin. Again, obviously, there's going to be intention, but it doesn't mean that you're never going to do the sin again. And if you do do that, then that that wipes away your repentance.
And if you when you repent, and one of the conditions for example of repenting is that you have the intention. In other words, you have this you have, you have decided
that you're not going to do that. And again, you have to feel remorse, you feel that the sin is wrong, you feel remorse for the action that you committed, and you have the intention not to do this. And again,
these are some of the some of the conditions of repentance. And if you fulfill those conditions, that means you have repented from that sin. And those, those feelings are really true in your heart.
Now, you may it may occur and may happen that you sometime in the future, you do that sin again, if you do that. And again, that doesn't mean that you will wipe away the repentance of the sin of the other repentance that you committed. I mean, that you performed earlier. Because as I said, the the the conditions that you met, there were truly in your heart, they were what you meant. So therefore you really repented from that. Now if you do that, if you do the sin again in the future, then you have to repent again from us.
And he shall love you repent properly, and sincerely shall love you, you've got wiped away the sin. And every time you commit the sin, you have to, again repeat again and again. And shala if you if you follow that process, if you follow that process. inshallah, over time you will remove that sin from your life. But if you don't, then you just have to continually try to repent to Allah subhanho wa Taala from the sins that you've committed
against them was what other means?
The question here is can you give some advice
to someone who's confused with a different opinion? Otherwise, you all agree with me that it should give you more line between the spaces to read your questions.
I'm just left before I could finish
playing Can you give us
actually what I do is maybe I'll charge for my bifocals when I get back to work. After this. I'm
going to respond to my
list you should make this bigger.
Don't forget to come out at that appropriate time that we agreed upon.
Please, can you give some advice to someone who is confused with the different opinions of Muslims, about attaining the pleasure of Allah, every group seems to have
their own ways to attain the pleasure of Allah.
What is the correct methodology to gain pleasure?
So this is slightly different than the means. I'll talk about from a more general perspective.
The most, the most important thing with respect to this individual Muslim
is his intention to please the last panel with Allah, his intention to obey Allah subhanho wa Taala, to obey the prophets of Salaam and to follow along with them, this is the most important thing that will be in the heart for the Muslim men, of course, the driving force behind that
kind of data, the fear of Allah subhanaw taala and the hope and all those kind of with die, what if, if the person has those things in his heart,
he may not have the level of knowledge to be able to identify what is the correct position, what is the correct approach, what is the correct way, for example, on the see how to attain the pleasure
but inshallah, if he has those things in his heart, I'll have to handle with Allah will forgive him or overlook the mistakes that he might make in following the path
because of what he has in his heart. And of course, the classic example that didn't pay me always mentioned
is the case of the person who told his his son and out of fear Allah Subhana, WA tada due to the sense that he committed when he told us that after his death to to burn the body and scatter his ashes over the ocean, and it believing that Allah subhanho wa Taala, then would not be able to punish him and so forth. And he just believed that he had come to the correct and even in the scope, to believe something of that,
of that nature, but his and it is his intention and his fear Allah subhanho wa Taala was correct in some solace of what Allah forgives.
So the the only way to identify what is the correct way what are some of the wrong paths is to have knowledge of a currency.
That is the only way and if you constantly go back to the Quran, constantly go back to the sooner the problem has gotten in the way of the Sahaba
the driving of the
teachings from the Quran, Sunnah. But as I said, that's something work, everybody is at a different level. And in the students, and even the scholars, there are very different levels. So it is possible for someone who has the right intention to be doing acts which are incorrect. But as I said, as long as those things aren't as hard insha Allah, Allah Subhana, Allah will overlook those mistakes. So the key is to try to find what is correct there. But also not always take everything that you're presented with and judge it according to the phenomena, and then do your best to follow that way which seems to be consistent with a phenomenon. That is the focus that every Muslim should
take, as he increases his knowledge and his understanding of Islam. They were able to identify better and better what is correct and what is incorrect, but that should not keep them from always having that approach in his heart, that anything that seems to him to be contradicting or promising that he will reject that he will not follow that and anything that that is taught or shown that seems to be correct for us and He will follow that with the intention of reading Allah subhanho wa Taala inshallah Allah subhanaw taala will be pleased with him in return.
Okay, this is this
I can only read about half of the words like questions
and when interesting question.
Of course, I shouldn't say that because that makes it sound like none of the other questions are interesting, but not what I meant is it's simple to pray because you're told to pray rather than because you want to pray.
as I mentioned before, you know Eman is that many, many different levels.
When a person first becomes Muslim, for example, you don't expect that his level of Eman and his understanding of his relationship with Allah subhana wa tada is going to be the same as someone who's been Muslim a long time or someone who was installed and so forth.
So, basically as one increases in his in his event, and understand
his relationship to Allah subhanaw taala better.
Any command that comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala is accepted, as I said,
we say after the
as we say after they're done and ready to be vulnerable, and is, the more one understands Islam, the more he is pleased with his Lord with the deen as religion and, and with the promise of filaments as the messenger so when any command comes from him, it's not just a matter of command, but it is a matter of him knowing that this is what Allah wants, that he wants to do, what to look for, and what God wants.
And this feeling of love and desire to do whatever kind of without a command goes as he grows in this industry, but it is also part of event that if almost without a command something
then an earlier part the demand the person just sees this as a command coming from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he does it simply out of the fact that it is a command coming from Allah and this is also part of a still fulfilling some of the obligations of the man and he still does. So with respect to that fact of seeing it as a command from Allah subhanho wa Taala you still have to do it even if you're just seeing it as a command from Allah subhana wa tada because you recognize the fact that you have to submit through the commands.
But as you go on, you're a man your attitude towards that will change because what does it mean that this is a command coming from all the data in your heart nothing will be more important to you than fulfilling whatever all this data has attributes to fulfill.
Actually, there was a number of questions about the interest to get I didn't make the mistake of actually mentioning it in the lecture so I don't know if that's enough for to qualify as the related to the topic.
I'll see if I get to
hear the questioner is basically asking about the
you mentioned having sincerity during during the prayer. I often see brothers completing their to rock as soon as prayers in under two minutes.
This is true even for the non petition of birth.
I like how it continues What is your opinion of such as birth? What about 60 seconds?
What would you recommend for suckers that would achieve less pleasure?
I think obviously,
I think the answer to such a question the nature is pretty obvious.
And with the law,
the more the person understand what is the slot? What is it doing in the slot and how much how he can attain the pleasure of Allah Subhana Allah God in that slot through the various various ways you know how intense this art is on the slot. And if he if he read for example in two minutes, the Saracen sooner permanency and he is at a point where he realizes the good thing and he should do it. So he does it but he doesn't put much effort into
what and he knows it's a good thing and he's doing it because he knows it's a good thing. And inshallah and you'll love pleasure with that person will be according to the level of his intention and what you put into the slot. Obviously that person cannot compare to the one who is really taking the slot seriously. Especially the like the sudden burst we see the example of the process element is the opposite of what you're doing now.
The soon embrace the process Elon has shown us that this is actually the prayer where you can listen in as long as you want. The congregational prayer the man has to be conscious of everybody in the congregation so he cannot make the congregation are further along. Because he has to be conscious of the people behind him right the procession was advised the mums to be liked and take into consideration so the sermon first should be lost.
Then the Conditional Proof that what we see among us,
let's be honest.
And usually that's not the case. Right? The sooner the obligatory First, the, the, the mom might read something as long as
well, in the summer birth, people usually read like, you know, cohort law, or something of
that nature. And this is, this is really a reflection of how much we're really putting into pleasing.
And it is something that we should we should think about because it is the first sign in front of us that we see
on a daily basis.
Okay, so interesting, completely irrelevant question. I'm not sure how
Now, this one begins by saying it's not rolling. And that's why I was willing to take this.
I like the honesty.
This may be a question which is not relevant to the topic, but I would appreciate an answer.
flattery will get you anywhere.
brothers, who I dearly love for the sake of Allah have divided and hearts are heartening over the issue.
over some money, we mentioned some issues and says, Can you discuss the principle, I'm not going to discuss that principle, because that's too far off topic. But I just want to discuss the question of, of the hearts being divided among sincere brothers. And this is a situation where now if you visit many cities, in the Muslim world, you will find the situation where
where the Muslim parts are clearly divided. And one of one of the basically, if people take the approach, and if Muslims take the approach, that I am working for the sake of Allah Subhana, WA, then to earn the pleasure, we'll look for Hannah with that.
And that is my ultimate goal.
I am not working for the sake of a particular group, for the disco or any other group, I'm not working for the sake of a particular ship, and to defend him against anyone else and to make him the biggest ship. I am working simply for the sake of others.
And when I find other people working for the sake of Allah, to Allah, even if I might disagree with him in so much, that I have to realize that if they are showing me outwardly that they are working for the sake of this man without even if I might disagree with them, on some issues, he had it from the I would actions, it seems to me that they're working for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, then it is my obligation to love them, for the sake of Allah.
And if you're going to love them, for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala it's going to be very difficult for your artists to be divided in the way that they are divided in so many places. But if you don't accept that fact,
if you refuse to allow the possibility that someone might be doing something differently, and also working for the sake of others fine with that, or if you put your group or your ship or whatever first, then you should realize that you are not following a path that is pleasing to others.
And this division that you're causing, may take you further away from Allah subhanho wa Taala regardless of how many outward deeds that you may do with it may seem to be pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala
now he's now he's afraid to come out you may you may make them as we agreed upon.
Can someone please push this brother out here?
