00:00:02--> 00:00:04

In Alhamdulillah

00:00:05--> 00:00:16

00:00:52--> 00:01:08

Yeah, you already know. Taco La La Pulu Hola, and sadita usually Alaikum Alaikum why overfilled lagoon novacom woman you will play how Rasulullah who for cojita as if it was an AVI about

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:01:13--> 00:01:20

He created us to obey Him, to serve him to worship him.

00:01:21--> 00:01:23

However, unlike

00:01:24--> 00:01:30

the angels, who Allah subhanahu wa taala, created for the same purpose.

00:01:33--> 00:01:39

Unlike the angels, who have also been created, to obey Allah to worship Allah.

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

Unlike them, we human beings,

00:01:47--> 00:01:48

we have a choice.

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

It obeying Allah,

00:01:52--> 00:01:57

a choice that the angels Allah subhanahu wa taala, he did not give them.

00:01:58--> 00:01:59

And so as a result,

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

we need something

00:02:03--> 00:02:04

to push us.

00:02:05--> 00:02:12

We need something to motivate us to drive us to worship him. subhanho wa taala.

00:02:15--> 00:02:19

And so that's why the Scholars when they define the meaning of the data,

00:02:22--> 00:02:24

what is the definition of worship?

00:02:26--> 00:02:33

One of two things that they mentioned in the definition of Aida is that it consists

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

of utmost love,

00:02:37--> 00:02:43

and utmost humility and submission to the one worshipped.

00:02:44--> 00:02:46

And so there are people

00:02:48--> 00:02:49

out there

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

who are obeyed

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

whatever they see,

00:02:56--> 00:02:57

people obey them.

00:02:59--> 00:03:01

But it may not be out of love.

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

And so for example, in certain countries where there are dictatorships,

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

the people obey the dictator,

00:03:13--> 00:03:18

the authority, they don't dare disobey Him, not out of love for Him,

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

not out of love for him,

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

but rather out of fear for him,

00:03:25--> 00:03:27

and fear for what may happen to them.

00:03:28--> 00:03:35

And so our relationship with the one we worship Allah subhana who went to Hana, it should not be the same.

00:03:37--> 00:03:41

Yes, on the one hand, we should fear Allah we should fear His punishment

00:03:43--> 00:03:47

for disobeying him. However, the primary

00:03:48--> 00:03:56

driving force that drives us, to obey Him to worship Him is something else. And that is

00:03:57--> 00:04:09

the love that we have for Allah subhanahu wa Tada in our hearts, the veneration that we have for Allah in our hearts. And so the main reason

00:04:10--> 00:04:17

the main reason that we do not the main reason that we don't obey Allah

00:04:19--> 00:04:41

the main reason why we don't find enjoyment in the worship of Allah subhanahu wa Tada for many of us, the main reason for that is that we are lacking this love and this veneration for Allah in our hearts. Not that is not present completely. If it's not present at all, then such a person is not a believer.

00:04:44--> 00:04:49

But our love for Allah in our veneration for Allah, it weakens in our hearts.

00:04:50--> 00:04:51

It goes down.

00:04:53--> 00:04:53

And so

00:04:54--> 00:04:57

because true love

00:04:59--> 00:04:59

because

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

True love is when you do everything for the one you love.

00:05:07--> 00:05:16

That's when you see the fruit of that love a person, he loves somebody, he's gonna do everything he can to please that person.

00:05:17--> 00:05:19

He's gonna do everything he can

00:05:21--> 00:05:30

to make sure that that person is satisfied with him. Even if it comes at a cost.

00:05:31--> 00:05:48

Even if it comes at the cost of sacrificing my own desires, I'm going to do it because of my love for that person. And so the test of your love for Allah subhanahu wa Tada is when

00:05:49--> 00:05:51

you come to a crossroads

00:05:54--> 00:06:00

a crossroads where you have to choose between one of two things.

00:06:01--> 00:06:03

There is no way

00:06:04--> 00:06:18

to blend these two things. There is no way of saying let me see if I can do both of these two things. You have to choose one of the two. Either go right or go left. There's no other middle path

00:06:22--> 00:06:24

and that is a test.

00:06:25--> 00:06:29

That is a test of love for a lot in your heart.

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

What is that crossroads? It is

00:06:35--> 00:06:36

when you come across something

00:06:40--> 00:06:41

which is beloved to your heart.

00:06:44--> 00:06:47

It's something you crave. It's something you desire.

00:06:49--> 00:06:50

You're enough desires it

00:06:52--> 00:06:56

but on the other hand, it is something that same thing is something

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada dislikes,

00:07:01--> 00:07:04

that Allah subhana wa Tada has forbidden

00:07:05--> 00:07:12

the Allah subhanho wa Taala does not alike is not pleased with it, nor the one who does it.

00:07:15--> 00:07:18

And so, if you choose

00:07:20--> 00:07:21

if you choose

00:07:22--> 00:07:25

to obey Allah subhanahu wa Tada at such a junction.

00:07:28--> 00:07:37

If you choose to give up that thing which is beloved to you, only because it is not beloved to Allah.

00:07:41--> 00:07:54

Then it is here it is here that you have proven your love for Allah subhanho wa taala. And so my dear brothers and sisters

00:07:57--> 00:08:00

this is why we find that the Sahaba or the Allahu Anhu

00:08:02--> 00:08:07

they demonstrated this love. It was this love that cools them.

00:08:08--> 00:08:13

Their love for Allah and His messenger. It was this love that drove them

00:08:16--> 00:08:22

to obey Allah to obey His Messenger to give up everything

00:08:23--> 00:08:25

for Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:08:27--> 00:08:42

They not only gave up things which were beloved to them, that we also find Beloved to us. But they gave up things that are also Beloved to us. That one of us would never give up.

00:08:43--> 00:08:44

Like our wealth.

00:08:45--> 00:08:47

Like our loved ones,

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

our loved ones.

00:08:52--> 00:09:16

They gave up their family times because their Eman came in between them and their loved ones. They gave up their land, their hometown, they gave up their homes, and above all, they gave up their lives for Allah subhanho wa taala. And so that's why that's why

00:09:18--> 00:09:24

that's why their Eman was where it was. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:09:25--> 00:09:25

that

00:09:27--> 00:09:34

men couldn't if he were JDB in Halawa, tell him and he will talk now that there are three things.

00:09:35--> 00:09:42

A person who finds these three things in his heart. He will taste the sweetness of Eman

00:09:44--> 00:09:58

on your corner Allahu wa rasuluh have the LA human Massey well Huma, the first the Allah and His messenger are more beloved to him and to his heart than anyone else.

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

One

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

You are what a new hip belly la he will you believe Orfila

00:10:04--> 00:10:21

to love for the sake of Allah and to hate for the for the sake of Allah. That when I love someone I do it for the sake of Allah when I hate someone, it is because Allah subhanho wa Taala hates that person and and the third one

00:10:23--> 00:10:26

and the third one that one to Coda now

00:10:27--> 00:10:33

for your oath he has a habit he mean unusually Kabila he shaved,

00:10:34--> 00:10:37

for a huge fire to be lit.

00:10:38--> 00:10:44

For him to be thrown into that fire is more beloved to him

00:10:45--> 00:11:05

Paula Hi, Eva de la haka taqwa. What are people who certainly when Nyjah Are you? Hello, Dina. Taco la law, how will it come don't have some dematerialized what topple law in the law hobby room vema John Malone, my dear brothers and sisters, if someone was to come to you,

00:12:01--> 00:12:07

and ask you, why it is that you should love Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

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

You would reply with two answers or two reasons. The first is

00:12:16--> 00:12:23

because of who Allah subhanho wa Taala is because of who he is.

00:12:26--> 00:12:29

There is no being in existence.

00:12:31--> 00:12:42

There is no being in existence. Who has attributes, characteristics and qualities of perfection

00:12:43--> 00:12:46

and not a single quality

00:12:47--> 00:12:48

of imperfection.

00:12:49--> 00:12:52

besides Allah subhanahu wa Tada

00:12:55--> 00:13:02

Allah subhanho wa Taala is described with every single good character with every single

00:13:04--> 00:13:08

quality an attribute of perfection. That is enough of a reason.

00:13:11--> 00:13:15

That is enough of a reason to love him subhanho wa Taala

00:13:16--> 00:13:17

and the second,

00:13:18--> 00:13:21

the second is because

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

of what he has done

00:13:25--> 00:13:28

because of what he has done for me and you.

00:13:30--> 00:13:37

And so from these two reasons we learn how to develop a love for Allah subhana wa Tada

00:13:39--> 00:13:54

if you're wondering my love for Allah is weak, and that's why I disobeyed Him. That's why I'm not really motivated to worship Him to do good deeds, to do extra act of a bada

00:13:56--> 00:14:05

than the way to increase your love for Allah subhanho wa Taala is through these two reasons is through these two ways. The first being

00:14:06--> 00:14:42

learn about who Allah subhanho wa Taala is through his many names and attributes. The more you get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala through these names to these attributes, the more you will fall in love with him subhanho wa Taala the more your Eman in him will increase and the more you will be pushed and driven to do that which pleases Allah subhana wa Tada. And the second way to increase your love for Allah subhanho wa Taala is

00:14:44--> 00:14:46

by sitting down and reflecting.

00:14:48--> 00:14:54

By sitting down and seriously pondering over everything that I have.

00:14:55--> 00:14:58

From the day my mother gave me birth until today

00:15:00--> 00:15:25

Every single thing that I have will not be coming from you know, law and nothing that you have of blessings, nothing. Without exception. Nothing that you have is from other than Allah. It is all from Allah every single blessing from the greatest to the smallest. It's from Allah subhanahu wa Tada. Our human nature

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

is that our hearts lean

00:15:30--> 00:15:32

towards those who do us good.

00:15:34--> 00:15:35

If you are in a

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

difficult situation

00:15:39--> 00:15:40

and someone comes by and helps you out

00:15:42--> 00:15:46

whether it be something small, whether it be something huge

00:15:50--> 00:15:51

you're gonna naturally

00:15:53--> 00:15:54

develop a love for that person.

00:15:56--> 00:16:05

You're going to go out of your way to develop a relationship with that person and maintain good ties with him.

00:16:08--> 00:16:11

So how about your Lord SubhanaHu wa Tada?

00:16:12--> 00:16:14

Does he deserve more than up

00:16:18--> 00:16:19

and I'll conclude with this.

00:16:22--> 00:16:28

Those who love Allah subhanho wa Taala in show genuine love for Allah subhanahu wa Tada

00:16:30--> 00:16:36

by obeying Him and His Messenger SallAllahu wasallam Allah subhanho wa Taala gives them in return.

00:16:39--> 00:16:48

Call In Kuntum to help Boone Allah wa Rooney your baby qumola Who are your field londonwill Macomb say to them Oh Mohamed,

there if you truly love Allah subhana who went to Hana that follow me.

00:16:57--> 00:17:02

If you want to prove your love for Allah, then follow the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:17:03--> 00:17:05

and as a result what will happen?

00:17:06--> 00:17:51
