Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa sallam eyelash NFL NBA even mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman cathedral cathedral for my brother we are on the subject of death and hereafter my brother and sister you're talking about in the last class we talked about the trust and faith in Allah subhanho data which we know as dark

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

then we have the who would you trust?

00:00:31--> 00:01:15

Someone who loves you, trust you implicitly and obeys you unquestioningly? Because they know you mean the best for them. Or someone who treats you like a stranger apparently dislikes your presence in his life and tries to disobey you at every opportunity. Who would you trust? That's the kind of person you love to have in your in your servants who will value who you are happy to please and grant favors to whom you delegate more and more responsibility until he acts in your name and carries out your will and becomes your face to the world. This is the case with Allah subhanaw taala where through implicit obedience, complete obedience concern for his pleasure alone, his slave

00:01:15--> 00:01:21

reaches a position where Allah subhanaw taala becomes his Cofield becomes his sponsor,

00:01:22--> 00:01:38

and is really his protector. What is the benefit of having Allah subhanaw taala as our coffee as our sponsor? I mean, that dumb question but Allah subhanaw taala said about those who he becomes a Coffield for

00:01:39--> 00:02:03

a young soul como la vous fala via libre Allah who were in Luton conferment the lady Yun soracom member they are Allah Allah He finally at our Kellyville me rune. Allah said If Allah helps you, nobody can overcome you. And if he leaves you, who is there after him that can help you?

00:02:04--> 00:02:09

And in Allah Alone, let the believers put their trust.

00:02:11--> 00:02:49

The Surah says enemy informed us that ALLAH SubhanA wa has said in a hadith called see on the authority of a warrior or the Alon who said that also Allah is Allah sallam said, Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Whosoever shows enmity to someone devoted to me to my volley I shall be at war with him. My slave drawers not near to me with anything more beloved by me than his religious duties. My slave does not draw closer to me by anything other than fulfilling the For I the things that are made for me.

00:02:52--> 00:03:39

And my slave continues to draw near to me with no affair with supererogatory work, so that I shall love him. When I love him, I am his hearing with which he hears his seeing with which he sees his hand with which he strikes and is fought with which he walks where he to ask something of me I would surely give it to him. And were he to ask me for refuge, I would surely grant him refuge. I do not hesitate about anything as much as I had to hesitate about seizing the soul of my faithful slave. He hates death and I hate hurting him. And this is in Makati. My brothers and sisters. Don't just sit and listen, reflect on this thing. Put yourself in the position where Allah subhanaw taala becomes

00:03:39--> 00:03:49

your hand and then raise that hand in Doha. What do you see? What do you see? Is that going to be rejected? Do you like that? Do you want that?

00:03:51--> 00:04:11

Do you think this will simply happen for you while you continue in your present lifestyle. When others went before you, who are far better than you had to go through greater great tests. People get real really seriously get rid. Stop fooling yourself and stop fooling others and stop getting fooled.

00:04:13--> 00:04:19

It is no good blaming others where Allah subhanaw taala gave you the intelligence and the ability to think and decide.

00:04:20--> 00:04:22

Allah gave us the ability to think and decide.

00:04:24--> 00:04:41

And therefore we are responsible for our decisions. There's no point in doing somebody else and say he made me do this Eve she made nobody makes you do anything. They say what they want to say they tempt you as they want to tempt you they try to to do to instigate you to irritate you to

00:04:42--> 00:04:45

you know to to somehow make you

00:04:46--> 00:04:48

or disobey Allah.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

But we make that choice to follow them. When we already have a another standard to follow and that is a standard of Muhammad Rasul Allah he's already selling

00:05:02--> 00:05:08

Take the decisions about your life because it's your life take decisions because one day it will end and then you will be alone.

00:05:10--> 00:05:12

Not deciding is a decision

00:05:13--> 00:05:29

all alone in a dark hole in the ground, all alone all alone in an element bizarre facing questions or other forms of life, who will have power over you and who will be able to do things to you that you have no defense against?

00:05:31--> 00:05:34

If the only one who can defend you turns away.

00:05:36--> 00:05:51

So hello, let me Allah protect us from this. Let us make changes while we still can because the day will come and may Allah protect us from what project as for some of us, it may come before we die when the door or hidayah and Toba will be closed for us.

00:05:52--> 00:05:53

And then there is no turning back.

00:05:55--> 00:06:03

The members remember that as soon as salam said there is no obedience to the creation, in the disobedience of Allah of the Creator.

00:06:04--> 00:06:12

And this is in most of the manga, and Hakim. Remember I said there is no obedience to the creation in the disobedience of the Creator.

00:06:15--> 00:06:30

Ask Allah subhanaw taala to help you and bless you and help us and bless us and open our hearts to the beauty of His mercy and guidance and enable us to do those actions which please Him and give us the courage to stand up against those who advise us to do the opposite.

00:06:34--> 00:06:56

From these question obedience, we come to the question of Eva from the question of obedience, we come to the question from the question of obedience because we are looking for benefit which Atharva or we are trying to escape a verb of punishment which is 100 Love, both of these are legitimate, both of these are permissible.

00:06:58--> 00:07:03

But there is a state higher than that which is we do out of love alone.

00:07:04--> 00:07:08

And that is emulation or imitation which is called a diva.

00:07:09--> 00:07:11

The most powerful matters

00:07:12--> 00:07:17

which is to see how we can get Allah to Allah to love us.

00:07:18--> 00:07:21

The wali of Allah is the One who Allah loves

00:07:24--> 00:07:29

because in the end, that's the only thing that matters. Does Allah Allah love us or not?

00:07:30--> 00:07:41

No amount of our own declarations of love and devotion for Allah subhanaw taala have any meaning? If Allah Allah does not accept that loves,

00:07:42--> 00:08:06

let us remember that Allah subhanho data is a long journey and a summit he does not need our love and devotion and devotion. He is not bound to accept it. If you accept it, he is doing us a favor. There have been and continue to be many people who claim to love Allah

00:08:08--> 00:08:10

and they will always be such people

00:08:17--> 00:08:19

have tried to adjust the light of this.

00:08:21--> 00:08:26

The famous bhakti movement in India, for example, is very well known for those who claimed to love Allah.

00:08:28--> 00:08:30

The question is, Did Allah love them?

00:08:32--> 00:08:42

The answer is given by Allah subhanaw taala himself to the question of what does it take for someone to get Allah Allah to love him? Allah has ever called

00:08:43--> 00:08:59

is speaking to us. So let me sing say call in gunden the headboard Allah Azza wa oni yobit como la. We offer Laguna de Nova, Allahu Akbar photo Rahim. Ce O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala he was of yourself.

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

If you really love Allah, then follow me. Emulate me imitate me do what I do. Say what I say walk like me talk like me D like me, make my diva

00:09:13--> 00:09:47

and what will happen that Allah will love you and forgive your sins, and Allah is oft forgiving, and Most Merciful. Imagine the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala if he had set some tough conditions, to win his love, even then we would have been grateful for having a way by which we could get to Allah subhanaw taala to love us. But in his infinite mercy, He gave us a way which is easy and beautiful and something that anyone with any sense would be delighted to follow anyway. And that is the way of Rasul Allah he's.

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

So all we need to do to become the Beloved of Allah subhanaw taala is to emulate is to make the table of asanas and salah. Now what's easier than that? If someone still doesn't want to

00:10:00--> 00:10:11

Make the bar for sorrows and sell them, then he has only himself ourselves to blame for losing out on the biggest advantage that he could have gained so easily. And happily.

00:10:14--> 00:10:34

I don't wish that on anyone, but the time when we will remember this either with great happiness and relief, or with even greater regret and grief will be when we are lying in our graves without a single helper. When being the Beloved of Allah will be the best provision and protection that we could ever wish for.

00:10:36--> 00:10:55

Wisdom after the event is always perfect. At this age, hindsight is always 2020 But always useless. And only the source of deep and abiding grief and endless grief, deep and abiding regulated industries.

00:10:56--> 00:11:13

Or it can be the source and means of great happiness. That choice. Whether looking back at our lives, we are going to be left with grief and regret on with joy and relief is up to us.

00:11:15--> 00:11:32

On the authority of a Buddha or the Allahu Anhu who said that also a nicer Salam said If Allah loves the slave of his, he calls debris that he is alive and says to him, I love so and so whenever let's say your name, Allah subhanho wa Taala on his or she's taking your name.

00:11:34--> 00:11:36

I love so and so therefore love him.

00:11:38--> 00:11:52

And he doesn't as I said, So Jabril Elisa loves him and then he even is around calls out in the oven saying Allah loves so and so. Therefore love him and the inhabitants of Heavens love that person, love that person.

00:11:54--> 00:12:35

And he said that acceptance is established for this person on the earth. So it isn't, it's not only there, it's on the earth. And if Allah subhanaw taala has award if Allah has disliked a slave of his, he calls with Robin said, I dislike and I abhor. So and So and therefore you dislike him and avoid him as well. So Jabez Rama bores him and dislikes him. And then he calls out to the inhabitants of the heavens. Allah subhanho wa Taala dislikes and aborts so and so therefore a Warren dislike that person and he is Allah sell himself so the award and dislike him and dislike and abundance for him is established on the earth. And this is in Muslim and Bukhari and Malik until

00:12:35--> 00:12:39

with the say this. Now think about this.

00:12:40--> 00:12:49

You might say, well, you know, there are a lot of disobedient people, a lot of people who don't even believe in Allah subhanaw taala, who are,

00:12:50--> 00:13:10

you know, who are doing all kinds of evil stuff, who are oppressing people who are killing people who are, you know, taking completely totally negative toxic decisions. And but they are elected and they are presidents and there are their Prime Ministers and the kings and whatnot. Right.

00:13:12--> 00:13:13

So, how does it fit?

00:13:15--> 00:13:21

Because here is somebody obviously Allah cannot love this person, unless Rantala was in this length this person. So,

00:13:22--> 00:13:31

the announcement must have been made about Allah subhanho dislike for this person, but on the earth what are we seeing? We are seeing this person has power has authority.

00:13:33--> 00:13:42

Look at the wording of the Hadees did Allah subhanaw taala say that they will not get authority and power? No, unless right that is it. They will be disliked and they will be award?

00:13:44--> 00:13:46

seriously ask yourself this question.

00:13:48--> 00:13:51

Think about all the toxic negative,

00:13:53--> 00:13:55

disgusting rulers

00:13:56--> 00:13:59

who are currently ruling in this world.

00:14:02--> 00:14:05

And seriously ask yourself this question and say who actually loves them?

00:14:06--> 00:14:07

People may obey them

00:14:08--> 00:14:09

out of fear.

00:14:11--> 00:14:12

But what they will do?

00:14:14--> 00:14:15

Do they love them?

00:14:18--> 00:14:26

As others question, Do people actually love them? There will be some people who love them. I don't doubt that but I'm saying generally speaking.

00:14:27--> 00:14:33

I love the sisters I always tell a lot of people who are worried when they when you talk about obedience to Allah subhanaw taala

00:14:34--> 00:14:42

we get worried that we will lose friends and I say to people, you will never lose friends. Never no matter what you do.

00:14:43--> 00:14:55

No matter what you do, whether you are the most pious and decent and positive and beneficial human being on the face of the earth or whether you are Jack the Ripper either either way,

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

or Al Capone right

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

Drug lord, Mafia King

00:15:04--> 00:15:07

whether you are this or that, you will always have friends.

00:15:09--> 00:15:17

All that you do when you decide to make Hedra from disobedience to obedience is that you change your friends.

00:15:19--> 00:15:20

You exchange

00:15:23--> 00:15:26

you exchange Abu Bakr

00:15:27--> 00:15:30

Radi Allahu Anhu for Abu Jihad and I will

00:15:32--> 00:15:38

just ask this question to yourself, do you think I will hell and I will have didn't have friends. There are plenty of friends

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

there was no shortage there was no there were no shortage of friend

00:15:43--> 00:15:46

and coworker so this was a long did you have friends? Of course you had friends.

00:15:47--> 00:15:49

But today 1500 years later

00:15:51--> 00:15:54

Have you ever heard somebody naming the child objects?

00:15:56--> 00:15:57

Or I will have

00:16:01--> 00:16:04

and how many people do you know are called a walker? Or the Lord?

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

Why

00:16:09--> 00:16:27

we only exchange friends, you obey Allah subhanho wa Taala you will get friends who appreciate that and who become your friends because you will be allowed to disobey Allah subhanaw taala you will have friends who are who will love you because you are in that toxic Negative lifestyle.

00:16:28--> 00:16:33

Somebody who is spending is not his whole his whole night in a in a

00:16:35--> 00:16:38

marijuana or whatever drugs Walking Dead.

00:16:40--> 00:16:41

Drinking himself silly

00:16:42--> 00:16:47

and he wakes up in the morning in his own vomit in a gutter. Do you think he doesn't have friends?

00:16:48--> 00:16:51

He's got plenty of friends, all the people who are in that

00:16:53--> 00:17:00

in that in that company of smoking pot and whatnot, all of them are all of them are his friends.

00:17:04--> 00:17:13

Let let us understand, lead your life to please the only one whose pleasure matters. And that is Allah subhanaw taala diligent.

00:17:14--> 00:17:20

Nobody else matters. The approval of nobody but nobody matters.

00:17:22--> 00:17:27

If you really want to seek approval, if you really want to think about

00:17:28--> 00:17:36

who thinks highly of me? First see whether the person that you are thinking about is obedient to Allah or not.

00:17:38--> 00:17:47

If a pious person if a person is obedient to Allah subhanaw taala who's following the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salah if that pious person thinks that you are

00:17:48--> 00:17:53

somebody who's good and that you are on the right path then inshallah maybe you are on the right path.

00:17:55--> 00:18:03

But if somebody who's misguided the poor guy is rebellious to others van Alterra he thinks you are you are you know this great champion.

00:18:04--> 00:18:12

Then you should be very seriously what it is. Oh my god, so I love it. I am I am the champion for someone who disobeyed the last marathon and what does it mean? It means I'm shaitan.

00:18:16--> 00:18:40

So never never ever imagined this whole business of you know people are very, very low. What will happen I will lose friend No, nobody loses friends. Everybody has friends. The question to ask is what kind of friends my brother and sister it Teva is a sign of love. Why is it important? Because love is beyond obedience. It is higher than obedience. Obedience is a necessary step leading to love of Allah subhanaw taala and

00:18:42--> 00:18:47

nobody can disobey Allah and disobey also Salah men claim to have loved this is another big fitna.

00:18:49--> 00:18:51

What Allah made for people will not do

00:18:52--> 00:19:05

Salah we will not pray much oh but I am Masuka Ashik Allah, I am Asahara su you have phases devoid of the beautiful so now personas are seldom

00:19:07--> 00:19:12

it is che when I don't use the term clean shaven I think clean about a Muslim shaving his beard

00:19:13--> 00:19:17

is a dirty action. It's an action of disobedience of the Sunnah

00:19:21--> 00:19:30

you don't follow so now you don't obey Allah subhanaw taala you don't take care of Halal haram you're earning a Hara haram you're dealing in interest and so as oh I have Allah zatia

00:19:32--> 00:19:33

you maybe another ship but let's not rush it.

00:19:35--> 00:19:37

Zara So, Asha Rasool,

00:19:38--> 00:19:39

please understand this.

00:19:41--> 00:19:43

There are rules

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

in the case of Allah subhanaw taala and there is our solemn it starts with obedience. And let's write down a setting that is which I mentioned to you before. My slave comes close to me by what by

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

fulfilling what I have obligated on him. It starts with that with fulfilling what is obligated,

00:20:07--> 00:20:09

only after that is something else.

00:20:11--> 00:20:24

He DEVAR is over and above, not in exchange for not instead of, over and above means to do more than the duty.

00:20:26--> 00:20:32

We get a salary to do our duty, we get a medal for doing over and above our duty

00:20:33--> 00:20:36

and therefore he or she must do more because they love Allah.

00:20:38--> 00:20:55

And what is that more? He must make himself a replica of the one who Allah loves the replica of holly Rula Habibollah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then Allah will love him because he resembles the one who Allah loves.

00:20:56--> 00:21:00

The love of Allah comes through Bahama sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:21:01--> 00:21:12

there is no love of there is no love of Allah and love from Allah independent of the diva of the Sunnah of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.

00:21:14--> 00:21:19

Allah loves those who obey and who imitate

00:21:21--> 00:21:24

his heavy Muhammad Rasul Allah Allah.

00:21:26--> 00:21:47

Allah subhanaw taala said about sexual messages or Salah Yeah, are you and maybe you have to book Allah who will mighty Tabarka middle we need all Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, Allah is sufficient for you, and for the believers, who emulate you who will make your Aktiva

00:21:51--> 00:21:58

rather than just ask yourself, what is the value of Allah subhanaw taala becoming sufficient for us?

00:22:00--> 00:22:05

What is the value of that for us in this dunya? And what is the value of that for us in the ACA

00:22:07--> 00:22:23

and then notice Allah is not talking about obedience, he's talking about love about emulation, about being as close to the Sooners and Salem as possible, about loving to emulate as well as Salah and about the serious desire to become the Beloved of Allah.

00:22:25--> 00:22:45

For certain people Allah said that he will become sufficient for them. So once again, what is the value of that? Ask yourself so that you will not regret it later. Ask myself so that I don't regret it later. So rather long file and number 64 Unless around that I said yeah, you wanna be you have spook Allah.

00:22:46--> 00:22:48

Wa money Tabak?

00:22:51--> 00:23:04

More money Tabak? meaner mini over hamazon Rosa la Oh prophets on his ALLAH, ALLAH is sufficient for you and for the believers who make your tiba who emulate you

00:23:07--> 00:23:25

it's a widespread misunderstanding in the OMA today. That to follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salam is discretionary is something that Allah has left to the discretion of the individual, and is not very important and in the individual, in the individuals practice of Islam.

00:23:26--> 00:23:29

This is a very, very common misunderstanding is a very huge misunderstanding

00:23:30--> 00:23:35

that it devolves into discussion, do it if you'd like to do it if you don't like do it, that's fine. No, it is not fine.

00:23:36--> 00:23:39

That's why people many people speak

00:23:40--> 00:23:45

of the various sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu in tones bordering on disdain

00:23:47--> 00:23:51

and disrespect and his day, he will say Oh, but that is only a sunnah.

00:23:52--> 00:24:13

It's therefore critical for us to understand the importance of following the Sunnah. And to differentiate between obeying the orders the resource SLM, which is that and doing what you used to do, and how used to do it, and how he did it, which is eatable. This is especially important for those who wish for the love of Allah subhanaw taala May Allah make us among them,

00:24:14--> 00:24:17

and for the acceptance of their dua

00:24:19--> 00:24:21

that they seek to be close to their heart.

00:24:22--> 00:24:43

The way to closeness to Allah subhanaw taala to Wilayat of Allah subhanaw taala is only and only through the blessed sunnah of His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, anyone who seeks to get close to Allah subhanho wa Taala independent of Rasul Allah is seldom is deluded.

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

is deluded it is is foolish is ignorant. He has no clue what he's trying to do. It is not possible there is no closeness to Allah subhanaw taala for those who reject and disregard or discount of

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

lay down the importance of His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Sunnah

00:25:05--> 00:25:08

Allah subhanho wa Taala used these two words

00:25:11--> 00:25:21

in connection with the messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam, ITAR and etbr it that is obedience. And it diva is to copy or emulate or follow

00:25:22--> 00:25:27

about the importance of it that the obedience to resources seller there are many ads in the Quran.

00:25:29--> 00:26:19

For example, ultra marathoners in My UT Rasulullah facut Atala woman double from Barcelona Cara him have Fiza in Surah Surah Nisa Allah said he who obeys Mohammed Salah Salem has indeed obeyed Allah. But he who turns away, then we have not sent you over Hamas or Salem as a watcher over them. Allah, Allah made obedience to His message or set up a condition of event and said that a person has no faith until he not only obeyed resources, and I'm completely without question, but did not even have any resistance in his heart, about the orders of resources. Not only obey, but also not, but also like the decision of the professors or whatever it might be. And most routers swore by his own

00:26:19--> 00:26:23

majesty and grace and said, fella or a bigger

00:26:24--> 00:26:55

law you mean owner?
