Brothers and sisters in Islam as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
My dear daughters, and sisters,
we all talk about
And when you're brought up in an environment,
soap operas, movies, they always talk to you about a love story between a man and a woman.
And normally the story would end like, they married one another. And then they lived happily ever after.
My sister's, my daughter's. That is not the case. They never show you what happens after marriage.
Marriage is a test. Marriage is an institution.
Marriage is a project.
You want a good partner.
You want a quality partner.
And that quality partner is a righteous man.
There is no harm in marrying a rich, handsome, prestigious, good family man. But these are not the criterias
my sisters in Islam,
they are old was shared with us.
Beautiful love stories between Romeo and Juliet, Cleopatra and Antonio, and others, so many names in different cultures.
But you want to know the best love story I ever read.
I ever learned.
The best love story in the whole world was between a man
and a woman.
The woman was 15 years older than him.
I'm talking about Khadija and Muhammad
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
Ayesha Viola Juana, brothers and sisters in Islam.
She made that statement and she said, I have never been jealous from the living wives of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam more than I'm jealous of Khadija.
Khadija is dead.
Khadija is not alive.
And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with mentioned her, I can tell how much excited he is about her. Her deja used to have a sister Her name is Hannah.
And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would hear the voice of Allah outside he would say Allahu Allah, this is hella get me holla
and when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would slaughter a sheep, he would make sure that he tells his wife, make sure that you give some of the cheap to the Friends of Khadija.
Ilana would say Why are you doing this to her deja hombre?
She had no teeth. When Allah subhanho wa Taala replaced her with better women better wives like myself.
Here is the statement that I'm looking for brothers and sisters in Islam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kills eyeshadow Viola Rhonda, Aisha lacquered Rosa to Hawa
her love, her love
was placed in my heart.
You see, these hearts are not in our hands.
Obey Allah and Allah will make you love your husband.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is showing the oma that the love comes from Allah.
If you obey Allah,
Allah will make you love your husband
and will make your husband loves you.
I'll share with you a real life story that happened at our time.
who went to the moon
worked in the Gulf countries, and Emirates for years. 20 years, very poor to begin with, he became wealthy.
His father was a very righteous man. He used to be the Imam. This is the real life story is not a sci fi.
So, the man after accumulating all his wealth, he sent to his father, my father, I want to get married.
A lot of the years passed by without getting married. Now it's the time and I want you to choose a life for me.
And I want you to go ahead and put the marriage contract together. And I want to go into the actual marriage. The wedding day, I want it to be the day that I arrived, and I don't want to see her.
This is how much trust this man this young man had in his father.
Of course, a righteous man knows that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a woman is asked in marriage for four reasons. Both beauty lineage and the deen. You better go for the deen. He chose in a quality religious women wife for his son. But yet her physical appearance was not the best.
The son arrives to Egypt. At the airport, he is backed up. And he is taken to his wife, who was wearing a veil. And then basically he got into the room with her alone.
As soon as she unveiled herself.
He became shocked.
He became shocked.
This is the wife that my father chose for me.
She's not beautiful.
She's not beautiful. He became so depressed here I am coming after all these years. So excited, so excited.
He became so depressed.
So he slept
towards the last third of the night. The wife
who understood that the action of the husband.
She tried to wake him up. He refused. She tried again. He refused.
And then she sprinkled water on him
to wake him up.
So he waked up.
And she spoke to him. And she said, I know how much disappointed you are. And I understand I'm not beautiful. But you know what?
I wished to get married. For one reason.
I wanted to implement the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When he said, Rahim, Allah whom are juhlin
may Allah have mercy on a man who wakes up to pray at night.
And then he would wake up his wife. And if she does not wake up
navaja Allah, Allah, he would sprinkle water on her to wake up. And this is the segment that she wanted to implement was Rahim Allah hombre? A wife and May Allah Subhana Allah have mercy on a woman grant His mercy to a wife who wakes up to pray to head up at night.
And she wakes her husband up to pray with her
and if he does not wake up
she sprinkles water in him
one law he
I'm so grateful to you.
That you granted me that wish. I wanted to implement that Hadith so much and I was a little bit hopeless that I will get married because I know I'm not beautiful.
Can you please now fulfill the rest of this howdy with me?
Can you wake up
and just lead me in Salah. Break the hatchet with me.
He waked up
and he led her in Salah
brothers and sisters in Islam. This man swears by Allah.
That as soon as he ended his dad Jude leading her and Salah. I looked at her as if I'm looking at the most beautiful women in this world.
That's the way it goes.
Don't be deceived by all these soap operas and movies.
Love gets to the heart because of Allah. Allah can make you love your husband, but you and your husband obey Allah.
lead your wives in Salah. Have your husbands lead you in Salah at night.
Family brothers and sisters in Islam.
They have grandchildren who memorize the Quran
and they are students of knowledge. And some of them are about to be scholars of this oma
brothers and sisters in Islam.
Don't compromise nor test the commands of Allah. If you want to live happily like they say in the movie ever after. Marriage is a tough institution.
enough that shaitaan everyday places the crown on the head of a shaitan who separates a husband and wife.
You need a good partner for the mission
and the quality that you must seek
righteousness and piety.
And if you do, you will get the best of this dunya
and be in the light Allah. You will be with your reformed husband and reformed wife as virgin Mata hora purified spouses in gender
