Salam ala Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala, mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi, WA salatu salam to Sleeman kathira. For mavado my brothers and sisters, we are talking about the love for Allah subhanho wa Taala
and that Allah subhanho wa Taala described love for him as the distinguishing feature as the signature of the Muslims. where Allah subhanaw taala said when levena Amano eyeshadow, Allah, Allah said the believers are those who love Allah subhanho wa Taala more than anyone or anything else.
We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us worthy of that beautiful mentioned where Allah subhanaw taala praised and mentioned the believers in this beautiful way.
lesson of ours,
let us see how
we can gain the love of Allah. So one is the believers are those who love Allah. But if I love Allah, I would like Allah also to love me.
Now how can that be achieved? What is it that I can do? And again the beauty of Islam is that it is not left to your and my guessing it's not left to your my whims and fancies to do what we want. It is not necessary for us to
follow this leader or that leader. There is only one leader we need to follow and that is Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa he was I was alone. So if I want a learner to love me
then what I do
is run intervention so clearly, Allison Cole say to them Yamaha Salah in contempt to him born Allah Fatah buni yobit como la jolla lagoon welcome hola hola for him. He said de la la he said Abdullah de la Lu. Which means say to them over Hamad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to Allah mankind If you really love Allah, then follow me. imitate me, emulate me and Allah will love you and forgive your sins and Allah subhana wa tada is oft forgiving, Most Merciful. So what must we do if we want Allah to love us? emulate Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Allah Allah He while he was I was on my brothers and sisters.
To get the love of Allah subhanho data for the slave.
Ask yourself what is the evidence that you need more than this, because this is the column of A lie itself. This is the is from sort of algebra. And this is what Allah subhanaw taala said.
ask yourself if you can realistically gain the love of Allah, while disobeying Allah while disobeying and also Salah, while following his Sunnah selectively, only what you like, meaning that you don't like some other things that Allah liked in his messenger Salalah highly
selective obedience is disobedience. Because if there are three things and you decide to obey one, you are automatically saying I will not obey the other two
selected obedience disobedience, whereas for the Muslim Allah subhana wa tada I hear and I obey, we hear and we obey. Allah doesn't dozen or two Hello facil me cough and into Islam completely. Not partially, not selectively, not only what I like and then what I within course, don't like I leave out, liking and not liking bringing our own desire our own preferences into what Allah subhanaw taala has decreed and ordered is the highest form of arrogance.
It is to put ourselves now we are on par with Allah and saying effectively by our actions. You may like this thing, but I'm sorry I don't like it. So I'm not going to do it.
It doesn't matter to me whether you like it or not, what matters to me is what I like. Now, coincidentally if what I like happens to coincide with what you like, then I will do it.
But if there is something which I like to do what we
If you don't like I don't care,
no problem, don't like it, but I will still do it.
This is what we are saying. This is what we are saying with our selective obedience.
And you can see how this is a
is a sign of complete arrogance.
The meaning of Islamic submission
a Muslim is one who has submitted himself to a loss of 100
Hello Sandra said very clearly la tomato nyla one who do not die except when you are in a state of submission.
Don't die before you get into that state. Now since we don't know when we will die,
what is the right time to choose and what is the right time to decide to get into a state of submission to Allah subhana wa jal
what is the right time?
one month from now
after I do hedge
or right now, right now
stop watching this.
Put it on pause.
niggas Declan. Make Toba make Nia, that and say Bella Halton and see Allah, whatever I was doing till now, which was contrary to what you ordered. I am giving up right now. I'm making the Nia to give it up right now.
At the first
moment, meaning not first convenient time No, I am saying supposing you are watching this in the middle of the night, obviously, you know if you and if you have been taking loans from banks, and your name is in the list of the people who are at war with Allah, you want to remove that name from that list. So Meg is the fourth over make the knee and say Allah I am with tomorrow morning, as soon as the bank opens, I'm going there, I'm going to settle this. And I'm going to get out of this load. And whatever I have to pay so called loss is not laws, that is my payment for gentlemen. That is the fine that I am imposing on myself for having gone against your orders for so long.
You know, in the UK, just now as we speak,
I was looking at the
COVID quarantine rules.
And the gold quarantine rule is that if you enter the UK from whichever country and there are some banned countries, you can't come at all. But if whatever point being that when you land in the UK, you are supposed to be in quarantine, depending on which country you come from either in a hotel or maybe in your own home or some residence.
And if you violate that, meaning that you are supposed to give an address and this address and they are monitoring that if you violate that, then the fine is 10,000 pounds, and or a prison sentence of 10 years imprisonment.
So worst case scenario is that if you go to the UK and you violate your quarantined, then you can be fined 10,000 pounds and spent 10 years in prison. 10 years in prison, can you imagine that?
And at the end of 10 years, they're not giving you a British citizenship. Right? So at the end of 10 years years, a British passport No.
10 years in prison, and then they will deport you.
Right. I don't know how many of you like British weather and British food that much.
Seriously, ask yourself this question that this is for violating a man made law. It's a good law under era because it's a law which is made to keep people safe from COVID. And it is made obviously, in the in keeping with the amount of knowledge that we have. We don't have too much knowledge about this. All we know is that isolation and wearing masks and so on and so forth, helps to prevent it
from violating that law. You did not commit a crime you didn't commit up you didn't commit murder. You didn't know you didn't hold up a bus or something or you didn't hijack a plane or you didn't do any of that. All you did was you gave an address when you landed in the UK and you said I am going to be in such a place and then you decided to go for a walk or you decided to go to the grocery store or you do
decided to go meet some friends, or you decided to do something, maybe go to the masjid or something.
For doing that, you can get arrested and jailed for 10 years and pay a fine of 10,000 pounds and then you're kicked out.
Now think about that. This is what happens to people who break laws. These are man made laws. These are not divine laws. The people who made the law didn't, they are not your creators. You are not their slave. They don't own you.
But they are very clear. If you are going to live, if you are going to come into the country which we run, this country belongs to us.
Whatever that means.
And if you want to come into this country, and if you don't follow our laws, this is what you're going to face.
Whatever are we What do we say about living in this world, where the air we breathe belongs to Allah. The water we drink belongs to Allah. The food we eat belongs to Allah. The houses we live in belongs to Allah. The earth that we walk on belongs to Allah, the atmosphere, the sky We fly through belongs to Allah.
The water we sail our boats and ships on belongs to Allah.
The sun whose rays we benefit from belongs to Allah.
The more which gives us light in the night belongs to Allah, the stars which give us direction blocks to us. They belong to Allah. Everything we eat belongs to all every plant, every animal, every fish belongs to a lot smarter.
We enjoy all of this.
We benefit from all of this. And then we have the devil energy, we have the arrogance to say I will not obey your laws. So what must happen?
What must happen?
10,000 pounds in 10 years imprisonment?
Does it happen? is Allah saying that?
the mercy of
Allah subhanaw taala says, after doing all of this
all you're saying is I'm sorry?
Do you think that will work? You go to the UK? you violate COVID quarantines and when they arrest you and all you have in front of the judge in the court. You say Oh, I'm sorry. I won't do it again.
Justice. Yeah, sure. Of course, you will not do to be human you are going to be sitting in the prison. How would you how would you do to here
but by Rob Delgado,
you are jellicle
All you do is have say I'm sorry, unless you go
no punishment. You're free.
Just don't bring the login.
Then what happens is break it again.
And then we say I'm sorry.
And that's it. Okay.
Ready to 30
minutes, I'm sorry.
But you keep doing this over and over and over and over.
And then we will have mercy on us. Because Allah subhanaw taala can forgive any number of times the point is,
then by breaking the law of Allah, we're harming ourselves that harm is still there.
And also Allah mercy on us. Or supposing you die in that state of disobeying Allah
know somebody who used to play who's to gamble play cards for money.
And of course, you know, you just haram Islam doesn't have it. It was a Muslim guy.
When he did it, I used to keep on doing it. And people told him Don't stop doing this thing. Don't do it.
refused. No, I have to do it.
It's a it's an addiction. Gambling is an addiction.
And then, to the extent
the man said that somebody told him, don't do it. He said, You know what, I am going to die gambling but I will not give up gambling.
And I was very careful how we
say, atrocious things like this. So what happened to the man, he had a heart attack. He was in hospital.
He survived. He came back home
and then he went back to the club.
They used to gamble. And he was sitting gambling. He had a second heart attack and he dropped it
in the gambling room
in the courtroom

Salas and the third,
whose collection is in the cellar, the museum in Hyderabad,
after police action,
there was a dinner which was hosted by General Jane Jody, who was the military commander
salads and was also invited
to salads and quit.
And after the dinner and everything finished,
to go home,
he called for his car.
And they said to him, go find your own car in the parking lot, the car will not be called.
Now very petty minded, very shameful behavior, you invite a guest. And then you insult him.
But be that as it may sound, like went to the parking lot.
He bought his car.
And he told his driver to take him to the cigar Club,
which was a house that belonged to his grandfather salaries in the first which had been given to the British and it became the to become the club and it was made decision Muslim.
He went there.
He sat and he drank all night.
Completely almost, you know,
to the point of becoming almost unconscious.
And they took him home, he went home, and you had a massive heart attack and he died.
Again, melas Martin, I forgive you.
We are not here to pronounce judgment or anything. Allah subhanaw taala can forgive anybody and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to also forgive salary. But the point i'm saying is that when we disobey Allah subhanaw taala.
We need to think
that what if Allah subhanaw taala takes us in that state of disobedience, then what?
Because as soon as nslm said that you will be redirected in the state that you died.
So what will happen when you are redirected?
My mother in law passed away two days ago and I request you to make dua for her forgiveness.
Allah subhanaw taala is very
appreciative of those who are faithful to him.
Allah does not allow the good deeds of anyone to go wasted.
Allah mentioned is very clearly in the Quran.
They will do agile machining.
And they will not allow the Azure the reward of the people who do good to be wasted.
She was suffering from cancer for four years.
But she was she used to pray regularly
and even through that whole illness.
She had become very unsteady on her feet. But despite that, no matter how many of you these days to tell her please pray, just make time home, lying in your bed, just pray. She wouldn't do that. She would get up she would go to the bathroom she would make widow she would come back and then she would sit in a chair where she had to sit a chair or present to sit in her chair and she would pray how many times she fell down.
But she would not give up her thighs.
And throughout her illness and towards the end when she was bedridden.
She always read one Judo Quran
and she read yacine every day
and her last moments.
She had his bout of vomiting because of the cancer and the nature of it. And they gave her some intravenous medicine to control the
the last as it turned out to be it was
last four hours, but she started reciting La ilaha illAllah.
And she resided Laila Illallah for four hours, and she died reciting Laila heilala.
we ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive her and to fill a cupboard with no.
And to join her with her husband was another one who was completely he died at the age of 9493, four years ago.
And every waking moment he would be written for soheila Dr. Brahma
bring them together and give them the company of Rasulullah sallallahu agenda for those who are very visa
request He will draw for both of them.
The reason I'm saying this is good for us to know Stories of Real people in today's age, who we know are new,
because it's very inspiring for us. And the like, very inspiring for me to know that Alhamdulillah we have people like this in our family handle.
The point I'm making is that selective obedience, I will do this I will not do that. I will do what is convenient, I will not do what's inconvenient. I do what I like I will not do what I don't like even if Allah has ordered even if there is a tsunami so solemn, this is a dangerous game to play.
Because it can end very badly.
We must obey Allah subhanaw taala we must follow the Sunnah of resources to the best of our ability.
Right to the best of our ability.
I know we will be weak I know we will make mistakes I know we cannot do it completely as we would like to do.
So sometimes there will be deficiencies and so on and so forth. All of that is fine. There is no problem. Because Allah subhana wa tada horahan Rahim Allah subhanaw taala His mercy extends over everything else Allah subhanaw taala knows us he knows our weaknesses. He knows what we are doing. He knows what's in our heart. Make sure that what's in the heart is pure.
Let there not be rebellion in the heart.
Do the best you can do to the best of your ability no matter how small that is no problem hungry law. And then make a step back and say Allah I am sorry I can only do this much Allah Please forgive me Allah Please accept this thing from me. You don't need this. I am doing it because I love you. I'm doing this because this is my offering to you. What else will I give you?
Yeah, I have nothing to give you I'm lucky.
I am a beggar What will a beggar give to you and you are the ruler shall carry
us around like this.
Don't defy Allah.
Don't deliberately do something knowing it is wrong. Don't deliberately eat something knowing it is haram don't deliberately go into and do an action which you know Islam.
You know interest based banking is wrong. Why do you do it? And if you have done it and you are you not you know Now get out of it. Notes Oh, I will lose one you will not lose money. That is the money that that is your payment check for Halsey from Ghana.
Right? That is a fine to get out of that jail.
And that's not 10 years that's forever.
My brothers sisters get real.
Allah subhanho wa Taala. As I told you yesterday, or not yesterday in the last class,
put conditions on everything in our life.
To get something we have to do something, whatever the thing is,
you will not get anything. If you do nothing. You do nothing. You get nothing. You do something, only then do you have a chance of getting something.
Now if tibba is emulation, with the only reason that you love the one you emulate, and you want to be identified by that love, and become a reminder of him to whoever sees you.
That's why you know people tell me I always promote the beard
and not bring it because I work for Gillette or something.
I'm doing it because this was the beautiful sooner for so nice.
Why would you want to wake up every morning
and remove that sooner from your face. When that is something which comes naturally which Allah subhanaw taala has granted you
instead of women
That if you wear it and I'm saying do do it properly, trim it and so on so full blooded to nice.
My mother's to say da da da da da da da da
and others to say should be a beard not a bush.
So keep it neat COVID
oil it dry ribbons
don't die ribbons.
Why do you shave it?
Why do you shave it?
Why are you not proud? of looking like Mohammed Salah harissa. ask yourself that question is not about the beard is not facial hair.
Here is a symbol of Mohammed Salah when the Malaika roamed the earth they look at you they will say oh, there is somebody who looks like Bahama sir Salah you don't want this. Seriously ask yourself this question. Don't you want is Do you not want the Mallika to point that he was there he was. This one looks like Mohammed Salah
a woman wearing a hijab
compared to somebody you know Allah gave you good hair.
Not to have it waving around in the breeze.
Enjoying the whole world.
wear the hijab with dignity. By all means, keep your hair loose at home with people who are your handler no problem.
But when you go out, wear the hijab because this is a symbol of the Muslim. This is what it means.
This is what it is. This is how you get recognized and oh there's a Muslim. There is a Muslim man.
There is somebody who looks like Bahama Susannah, there is somebody who looks like Fatima Zahra delana there is somebody who looks like her digital Cobra delana
it is not simply enough to say I love Fatima I love how do you know if you love them look like them? How can you love them and you look like the opposite. It's not enough to say I love Allah I love you know Abu Bakar Anna and Omar and Ali and also man and Allah one was right, it's not enough.
If you love them emulate the look like this, and they emulated Mohammed Salim so therefore, we emulate Muhammad Salah
loving Allah subhana wa tada and Allah subhanho data said that if you love me,
then love My love the one I love.
Love My baby mama some law
and that is why a lot of anotehr as an Allah didn't leave it at saying just saying that I love Mohammed Salah Salam is enough. No, Allah said demonstrate this love by emulating him because emulation is the greatest symbol of devotion.
You know, one of the
most common ways that we see emulation happening in our society today is way is the way in which young people youth emulate sports superstars.
Right they like to walk like them talk like them were the brands they were and so on and so forth. And remember,
it's okay if you're doing that as long as there's nothing around. But point is that that person that you are emulated doesn't even know you exist. And that emulation really doesn't add any value to you.
It's of no benefit to you in this dunya and certainly no benefit in the occur. But emulation of Mohammed Salah is something that is beneficial to you in the dunya and the Acura. Now you might say how is it benefited? Because everything that also Sarah Sarah did was with such tremendous dignity and so much of truthfulness and so much of sincerity and so much of compassion and so much of confidence, that anyone acting with these qualities, anyone acting with integrity and compassion and kindness and confidence and dignity.
In this world will automatically become a leader will become influential will become somebody the world looks up to will become somebody that is himself or herself emulated by others.
And then in the act here Allah Subhana Allah will love you. Now, what more guarantee do you want?
of genma inshallah, because if somebody who Allah subhanaw taala loves which fire can burn him.
How can that person have any problems in the area because this is somebody that Allah loves
It is so simple and
So easy and you know the What I really love about Islam is the fact that to do to achieve greatness to achieve, you know benefit, not greatness, relative benefit.
You do not have to do anything which is painful or harmful or in any way which is, you know, tough and difficult to do.
The things that we like to call tough are really things that go against our ego,
things that go against our laziness things that which, which is a good thing to fight, which is a good thing to find.
Really think about this.
So, what must we do?
If you want to emulate Mahatma Sallam because you love it, and you want the world to remember him?
When they see you,
you want to become the the instigator of people remembering Bahasa Salah.
And the only way that happen is if you look like him, you talk like him, you walk like him, you deal like him you be like him in every respect.
How do you deal with your family
at home? How do you deal with older people? How do you deal with youngsters? How do you deal in your workplace? Whether you are the owner of the business or whether you are an employee?
how you behave in the masjid, how you drive your car, how you behave in a in a shop, how you behave in public transport, how you behave on the sports field.
Everything must reflect
Yes, Aflac indicate that the character and the manners and the way of
study his appearance
and make your appearance like his own
appearance first, because that is the exterior, the packaging, which will entice the observer to look inside.
packaging is the essence of brand
packaging, which is the title of the message
that you want to give to the world that you are a Mohammadi that you are one of the people of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.
Allah subhanaw taala said about the love the Sahaba had for resources Allah and W Allah Bill momineen Amina and fusi him who as well as you who mahato
Allah said the prophets Allah seldom is closer to the believers than their own selves.
And his wives are the believers mother's
alleging that the Sahaba loved Rosado Sallam more than they love themselves,
then Abby is more important to them than their own lives.
And remember, it's one thing for a human being say that you will always challenge our statement and say, Well, you know, you're going by appearances, because how do you know how did you go into his heart to see but with Allah, you can see that because Allah knows, Allah knows what's in the heart. So if Allah subhanaw taala is saying that these people love Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam more than they love themselves, that Allah is speaking from a position of perfect knowledge, where he knows what is in their hearts.
You know, seriously,
to truly understand the level of this have to truly understand the magnificence of this, however, I think is impossible, really,
to get some glimpses of it,
but just this thing to say that these are people whose witnesses Allah,
everyone else will have to find witnesses to present before Allah.
You know, and say that okay here by witness Yala that I did right and so on and so forth. But for the Sahaba their witnesses Allah Himself.
This was the reward
for following Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in excellence. This was the reward for supporting Mohammed Salah
against his enemies. This was the reward for being the hawala Yin for being the
supporters, the followers, the
those who obeyed a sort of Santa
Marta sisters, we will not be Sahaba anytime, but if we obey or source or sell them and if we emulate him and we tried to follow him in excellence, then Allah subhanaw taala said in the ad which I decided before you yesterday
when I was
a savvy hoonah lava Luna middle muhajir in our Ansari, one the zenith of our home base
and those who make the diva
diva what is the one the Xena Tara home,
who followed the who made the TiVo emulated bill Asad.
rajala, one was rather watered one.
Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Allah.
Allah subhanaw taala left that door open for you and me for anyone till the Day of Judgment. Who wants to follow the Sahaba bill Hassan with a son with excellence. And let's say if you if you do that,
then just as Allah was pleased with them and they were pleased with Allah, Allah will be pleased with you and you will replace Allah.
So the door to join them, by the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala has been left open. It's up to us
whether we want to go through the door or not.
I was rather than a bore testimony to the love the Sahaba had for us to sell them and said that they loved him more than they loved themselves. That's the standard. Two level sources are more than anyone in anything,
Allah subhanaw taala made things very clear.
The love of Allah and the love of Muhammad wa sallam is a record of the day it's a pillar of Islam. It's a part of our creed.
Without which we cannot be Muslims.
So in another place, in Surah Taha Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this even more powerfully, even more emphatically
when I'm not surrounded that Is it cold again say to them you have a
cold in Ghana aku aku
aku was logical. Who are shirato what Amala nectar of

Allah, Allah says Allah Toba say to them Yamaha masasa if your father's and all of these are statements which include the other gender. So Father, meaning parents, fathers and mothers, sons meaning siblings, son, son, son, meaning children's sons and daughters, brothers meaning brothers and sisters, siblings, wives, meaning wives or husbands. So the iron applies to everybody, man or woman. And it includes both genders. So as Rhonda says, say if your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your kindred, your families, extended families, the wealth that you have gained,
the commerce in which you feel you fear, a decline
and the dwellings the houses in which you delight, are dearer to you than Allah subhanho data and His Messenger sallallahu sallam, and striving hard and fighting in his cause jealous raloo then wait until Allah subhana wa Taala brings about his decision of punishment.
And Allah does not guide the people who are rebellious, who are alpha Zico
as well as mentioning
mentioning the the qualities that are
necessary for a person to
to be able to
to be able to you know, ask
to be able to be a Muslim right
and also after describing the qualities that are necessary for a person to be a Muslim and I saying that in this
set of qualities, there are
what Allah subhanaw taala has mentioned
are the things that we know the love to think about that Allah saying here, your parents, your children, your siblings, your extended families, the wealth that you have, right. Now then if you are in business, then you fear decline in the business, if you are in employment, you might feel that I might lose my job. And then the houses that you build and you enjoy and you like, you look at them as a Mashallah
Now, think about this. Today we build a house.
How big is your house?
How many rooms? Let me tell you, in other words, now Dr. Roboto.
a house and he didn't build out because he had no house. He was already here. He was living in a palace himself. He built another one on top of a hill
in the indo European Baroque style of architecture.
It had over 150 rooms, furnished with Louis 16 furniture.
It had a nine hole golf course. It had a polo ground. It had a stable for horses, and it had a dairy farm.
The balance was also full of stucco, ornamental works and it used to overlook Hussain Sagar lake.
And that is the battle squad, Ramzi
does it sound like
where is it among? Where is our book? Where is that furniture?
What happened to the horses? What happened to the golf course? What happened to the pullover?
Just the structure of the palaces to there
is now an office of the electricity
Everything is gone.
So what do you think yours and mine will remain?
silent Roger saying you love all this stuff. But if you love it more than you love Allah, Mohammed Salim
and go and wait for the other fella.
And Allah does not guide various people.
The love of Allah and the love of rasa Salam is intrinsic in our lives.
And even myself when you let us develop this in our lives in a way, where this becomes the witness in our favor in the middle of
Salalah will carry while he was a member of the family Kumara lightworker
