kindled under Allah. Wa Salatu was Salam O Allah, Colombia. While he was happy he will Manuela Baba.
My dear brothers and sisters, and elders, we continue with the series on questions, and how will we answer them? And these refer to the questions of the grave? And we are on the first question, which is monobook? Who is Europe?
And we were talking about how, if we need to answer this question, and of course, we do need to answer this question. If we want to answer this question correctly, which is to say, Robbie, Allah, that my Arab is Allah, then what is it that we need to do with regard to living our lives in such a way that that answer be Allah will come out from our mouths, when the angels come and question us. And then we sort of set up said about these angels, he described them and he said that they have a very terrifying
appearance. These are not nice little angels, who will come and sit by your side and sing tunes for you and your years. They are huge, big angels. Their Eyes are blue and black. He said that when they come, they will dig the earth behind them. And they will come and they will ask these questions in an extremely harsh manner.
In a very horrific in a very harsh manner. Imagine you just love this world. And we Allah cause us to live this leave this world in a way which is the best for us. We I ask Allah subhanaw taala to make the last of our actions, the best of our actions, and the last of our days, the best of our days, and to take us in a state where we will be helped by Allah Jalla Geraldo, when we have to face his mouth look about we have to face creatures who are other forms of life which we have never seen, who we have never heard. And that day every single one of us will see them and we will hear them and that time and that
that whole experience will be extremely horrifying and terrifying. unless Allah subhanaw taala helps us and we ask for the help of Allah Allah Allah Allah.
So in that context, we said well, if we have to answer a B Allah, what do we need to do? And the answer short answer is that we have to live our life.
Keeping this in mind we have to live our life as if Allah is actually our allies our up there is no as if to that, but meaning that if we are saying this with our tongue that allies Myra, then is is that speech is that claim reflected in all my actions in life because at the end of the day, that is what matters and that is what counts.
Allah subhanaw taala said in the eye at which we recite every Juma every endeavor as part of the
Allah Illa Anto Muslim or you believe have fear of Allah have fear of offending Allah have Taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala. As it is his right that he should, that you should have this taqwa and do not die except in a state of Islam.
So how do we ensure that we don't die except in a state of Islam, by living in a state of Islam, there is no way that we are going to live in a state outside of Islam. And then suddenly, at the moment of our deaths, we are going to come and die as Muslims this is not possible it's not even logically doesn't make sense obviously cannot happen.
Especially when we know that death is completely unexpected, we do not know when we are going to die. If we knew the specific date of our dying I can say well I'm gonna die on so and so date and therefore I two days before that, I'm going to do all of this and be prepared but we don't know that death comes and it comes suddenly for every single person death is unexpected. The only person for whom That was unexpected and non event was for Rasul Allah is Allah Allah, Allah, Allah. And this is the this is the honor that is given to the Gambia, where monocle mouth comes to him. And at first of all, Allah subhanho wa Taala asked him this question, do you want to stay or do you want to go and
then all of a sudden said that he would like to meet his Ra. And then multiple outcomes, one of the most asked his permission before he extracts his soul, this is the essence of the MBA, nobody other than the MBA, get this and nobody other than who lasala got this. So therefore, as far as we are concerned, no matter what we consider our station to be only Allah knows what our stations are. It's not what people say. It's not what we think of ourselves, what the station with Allah subhanaw taala is known only and only to Allah. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make that station, the best of those stations and to hide our faults from the people and to give us the love and respect and result
of the people as well.
So we come to the last of those matters and as I mentioned to you earlier,
Allah subhanho wa Taala complete and total obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala is the first and the last of the matter is the theme of the Sunnah of NaVi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is to see and the reason for that Why must we do the Salah? Because that is the way of getting Allah subhanho wa Taala to love us. Because in the end my brothers and sisters that is the only thing which matters? does Allah love us or does Allah not love us? No amount of our own declarations
of love and devotion for Allah have any meaning if Allah subhanaw taala does not accept that love, let us remember Allah subhanho wa Taala is alleghany and he is a summer, he does not need our love and our devotion, he is not bound to accept it, if he accepts it, he is doing us a favor, there have been there have been and continue to be many people in the world who claim to love Allah subhanho wa Taala in this country in India, there was a famous what is what came to be known as the Bhakti movement. And we are people like Mira by and people like,
you know, come and compete with us and so on, who wrote a lot of poems and sang songs and whatnot. And their whole thing was bhakti means love for others. They did not use the word Allah but that was what they meant. And the question is not whether they love God, the question is, did Allah Allah?
And Allah subhanho wa Taala himself gave the answer he gave the answer of to this question, if you ask this question Does, does Allah love me? Tell me do we do we should we ask this question for ourselves or not? What do you think?
We should ask? No. So ask this question. Does Allah love me? And the answer is given by Allah Allah Himself.
So we don't have to ask anybody else. If you say, does Allah love me? You don't need me or somebody else to tell you yes, Allah loves you or no, Allah doesn't have you know, you don't even have to answer the question yourself. Allah subhanaw taala answered the question for you. So ask yourself this question does Allah love me? asked
to see what Allah Subhana Allah says, Allah subhanaw taala said the answer to this question does Allah Allah, Allah subhanaw taala said colon con con, una la de como la la, la,
la la la. la haine.
does Allah Allah, Allah subhanaw taala said say to them, Obama sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if you love Allah, if you really love Allah subhanho wa Taala then make by Eva, follow me imitate me. Allah will love you.
does Allah love me? What is the answer to that question? Am I doing the Teva for sola, sola, sola are not very simple. If you are doing the theva then insha Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala loves you.
If you are not doing the Salah Salem, then Believe me no matter what else you are doing, Allah does not love you because Allah said it himself.
Now you might say, Well, you see I'm doing a lot of good work. Allah takes a lot of good work even from the people who are not even Muslim. Today, the tragedy is, the tragedy is the greatest and most charitable people in the world are not Muslim.
The greatest and most ostentatious spenders are Muslims.
complete opposite, complete opposite.
People who are actually spending billions of dollars in charity who are actually helping the people, poor people who are spending money like water to cure sickness, the AIDS program of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, billions of dollars across the world.
And when it comes to buying personalized
at&t planes with Jacuzzis on board who does that? Muslims when it comes to buying big colored rocks for billions of dollars, who does that Muslims when it comes to setting up a Christmas tree worth $15 million $13 million
with gold and diamonds and whatnot on it, who does that? Muslims
so don't believe that just because you are doing charitable work or you're doing spending money and so on and so forth, that somehow Allah loves you even if you leave the show now. I'm sorry, doesn't that doesn't work? Doesn't work for a very simple reason. What you are spending belongs to Allah anyway. You're not doing Allah any favor, didn't didn't you you're not taking what belongs to you to spend in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala It is Allah has great mercy on you that Allah gave us an opportunity to spend that money in the path of Allah. There are other people like you who are spending that money and all kinds of stuff, you could have been them. But Allah saved you from that
he gave you an opportunity in sha Allah will also give you the reward for that. I am not anybody I am not sitting here in judgment to say what Allah will do and he will not do All I'm saying is question does Allah love You know, if you are not doing the sooner if you are not making it tiba of the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salaam, Allah subhanaw taala
does not love you? I didn't say it, Allah said it himself.
My brothers and sisters, imagine the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah.
If Allah 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 a lot to love us. But in his infinite mercy, Allah, Allah gave us a way which is easy, which is beautiful, and which is something that anyone with any sense would be delighted to follow anyway. And that is the way of Allah is Allah Allah Allah azza wa jal. So all we need to do to become the Beloved of Allah to become Allah, Allah to become people who Allah subhanho wa Taala loves is to imitate Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and specifically using the term imitate and not obey because the meaning of etbr is imitate the meaning of it that is
obey two completely different words.
Now, if somebody still does not want to make the theva of Salah, then Believe me, that person has only himself or herself to blame for losing out on the biggest advantage that they could have had and they could have gained so easily and happily. I don't wish that on anyone. But the time when we will remember this, this particular lecture, the time when you remember me
who irritates you by saying the same thing over and over again. mela save you from that. That time when you will remember that with thankfulness or with regret is when you are lying alone in your summer.
And moon Kira Nikita has come and they are asking you mantra book.
I asked Allah subhanaw taala to make that day or day when you will remember this with great happiness is Alhamdulillah I heard this and I did it and now I am safe.
I definitely do not wish that on that day you will say oh my god, I wish I had heard. I wish I had listened I wish I had done something.
My brother sisters,
what is a better provision than the help of Allah when we are lying in that grave? Alone.
Alone. Just today, I got news of two people we knew I mean many people die of course 1000s of people in the world but two people one of them is my mother's cousin who passed away we asked request you to make the offer is an offer of inshallah Mustafa he was sick for a long time. And he passed away We ask Allah Subhana Allah to make to give in general for those who Allah without his app, we asked him for his mother Angela, and the other one is the mother of another good friend of mine, say Robin from Bangalore, his mother also passed away in Calcutta this morning. And we asked Allah subhanaw taala to give her genital photos raw very sappy as well as well. She also was ill for a long time We
ask Allah subhanaw taala to wipe off all her sins and to forgive her all her mistakes and to be pleased with her and to be pleased with Uncle Vostok and not to be displeased with them at all inshallah, Allah sisters, a day will come when this duar insha Allah will be made by somebody else for you and me
that they will come. But believe me on that day, the doctor will help no doubt I have absolutely no doubt Allah will help and ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us people who will make the draw for us inshallah, and I request all of you to make this draft for me when you know that I am God.
all the joy in the world is not going to help if there are no actions to support it.
And I'm not just playing, you know, I'm not just being sort of
a dead weight of being negative. A man came from
and specifically asked this question, he said, Oh,
please make God that I am one of your companions in general.
He's basically Yeah, this question, oh, he asked the VRS Allah, please make dua that I am one of your companions, who said I will make the dua but you help my doula you help me with your actions.
So if the draft the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam needs the help of the actions of the individual. How do you think your daughter My daughter will What do you think have to do with the actions are not there? Right and giving you app I am not giving you my opinions. Please note I'm giving you advice I'm giving you a parameter is nothing bigger and better than that. And therefore it's up to you take it or leave it. If the law of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam needed the help of the Amal of the person. What do you say about my dua or Yoda
drawn under law is valid and we still make the law. But don't do this to yourself. Do not leave this on Nafisa do not refuse to make the theva of the province just because of your enough just because of your desire. This is the worst of worst of things to do. For what are you doing that tell me what gains you get from that?
Don't do this Joseph. Now what of those who Allah loves?
So what's so great about Allah loving us? Rasul? Allah is Allah Allah is Allah informed us on the authority of Abu Dhabi, Allahu anhu. You know, these witches in Bukhari, Malik and tirmidhi.
Our as Ilana said that NaVi Salalah alayhi wa sallam said, the meaning of which is, if Allah subhanho wa Taala loves the slave of his, he calls gibril Allah is Solomon says, I love so and so therefore love him. And he said, so God loves him. Then he calls he meaning jabril calls out in the heavens, and says, Allah loves so and so therefore love him, and the inhabitants of the heavens love that person who are the inhabitants of the heavens, the Malacca
the angels, and he said, then acceptance for that person is established on the earth. And if Allah subhanaw taala dislike somebody
he called zebra a Salam in the same sequence he called him a Salam intelligibility like dislike, so and so I abort so and so I hate so and so. And gibberella is Allah and Allah says, and you hate him also ngvla salaam hates that person, and he announces in the heavens, Allah subhanho wa Taala, dislike so and so. And therefore the inhabitants of the heavens also dislike that person and be Salam said, so they have all him, they dislike him, and dislike and abhorrence for him is established on the earth. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to save us from that and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to establish love for us in this dunya which comes from obeying Allah subhanho wa Taala
my brother and sisters ithuba imitation is a sign of love. imitation is the most sincere sign of love.
Why is this important? Because love is beyond obedience. It's a stage beyond the stage of obedience. Obedience is a necessary step leading to love they cannot be you can't claim to love Allah and you don't obey Allah you got this. We have this we have all these all kinds of people today. You have people who claim to love Asana, Asana
Ooi da visa, they they have invented all these terms ruhija my role is sacrificed on visualizza sama never said ruhija they said Emma mothers and fathers be sacrificed one euro sola but anyhow
but then you see this will he and his wife, he looks like Bill Gates, or he looks like Michael Jackson. I mean there's no resemblance in that do either and the Prophet Salazar isn't
right he's got a punk hairstyle he's got an absolutely smooth face. I don't like the term clean shaven because how can how can removing the tsunami xlsm be called clean there's nothing clean about it. It's a very dirty action for a Muslim to do that. Right. But we have described the face so it's a very smooth face. You don't see the sign officer Salah mini speech or his actions or his dealings or is nothing but you if you are
aware, where is this what what is this?
What then is this?
The Bahamas Allah Allah Allah Azza wa sallam is absolutely for Coronavirus Allah subhanaw taala made this for
so Eva and imitation is a sign of love. not claiming to love Allah not claiming to love Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So now obedience is an absolutely necessary step leading to love but to gain the love of Allah one has to go beyond obedience and do more than that, more than what is merely the duty. The person must do more because he loves Allah.
And what is that? He must make himself a replica of the one who Allah loves habibollah Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
you want to learn to love you What must you do? become like Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam because Allah, Allah and Allah Subhana Allah loves anyone who is like Mohammed Allison.
We talk about appearance because that is the first thing but please don't think that appearance is the only thing. It is not the only thing. It's the first thing therefore it is very important.
When I'm saying it is not the only thing it does not mean it is not important. It means that it is not complete in itself. appearance is the first thing absolutely critical to change your appearance to make yourself look like Mohammed salatu salam Why must a Muslim be persuaded to do that?
I must have Muslim be persuaded to look like Bama salasar I have never understood. Why must a Muslim be persuaded to look like Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Who do you want to look like Tell me
other than Mohammed Salah Salem, who do you want to look like? And why do you want to look like that person instead of looking like Bahama salad ourselves? Ask yourself seriously sit down, ask yourself these questions
asked, Why do I want to look like anyone other than Muhammad Ali? Sir? Why must I need persuasion to look like Mohammed Salah Salam ask yourself this question. And then once you have changed your appearance, then look at the next step. What is my speech like?
What am I actions like?
What am I dealing with people like everything is important and everything is equally important. Please understand that. Allah subhanaw taala
said to his messengers, Allah Allah is Allah. Yeah, you are Naboo Hasbrook Allahu wa Amani tava aka Mina meaning
Allah said, Oh by Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, Allah is sufficient for you. And for the believers who make your
money Taka. Allah did not say those who obey you. He said, those who make your edema, those who love you and imitate you, Allah says Allah will is sufficient for them Allah will become enough for them. Allah subhanaw taala will help them in every aspect of their lives. This is the
this is the promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Now brothers and sisters, ask yourself this question, what is the value of Allah becoming sufficient for us?
What is the value for us in this dunya and in the market? And once again, seriously, seriously, ask yourself this question. Does this thing have value for me?
You know, I'm the world's greatest expert at asking dumb questions. Nobody has any dumb questions that I asked. But the reason I ask them questions is because seriously, we have to ask ourselves this question. Live thoughtfully. Live intelligently. Practice your deen consciously, not by default not by like some raw some This is some you know customer practice know consciously. So ask yourself this question. Imagine think about this year here you have a formula where you can actually get a lot of love you
and you're not following the formula. So ask yourself this Allah for Allah is it important love of Allah? Is it important?
So save yourself? Don't actually I don't, I don't think I need it. It's not important. So forget all this is about business.
You are doing something consciously.
Do it consciously.
say this to me. You know, I'm saying this to you because I have absolute complete certainty that there is not a single person in this room in this budget is not a single person, not a single Muslim, who will listen to this. And actually say I don't need the love of Allah.
It is my mama and it is my my belief about you that if you are not doing the avasarala it is only because you have not thought seriously about the issue.
It is my belief and May Allah make this right, that not a single one of you. Who is who is not doing the therapies Allah Allah is doing is doing that deliberately as a action of rebellion. I don't believe that.
You are not doing it as an action. You're just doing it thoughtlessly. You're doing it because you have not given it thought you're doing it because you don't ask these dumb questions to yourself. So my submission to you is please ask this question. It will and it showed and it will frighten the living daylights out of you. And it will change shaitan away because it's only shaitan who's whispering in your eyes to say that you look nice like this and you look nice like that. Who the hell cares whether you look nicer you don't realize
that what matters is whether somebody says that you you look worse if you look like masala what kind of human is that? What kind of Islam is that?
You will people will like you If Allah loves you period.
People will like you If Allah loves you, and I will love you when you look like Mohammed Salah Salah when you walk talk act like Bahama Salah that is awesome. So ask yourself this question.
Is the love of Allah important for me? Do I want Allah to love me? Do I care whether Allah loves me or not? Please forgive me dumb questions. But ask this question. Seriously ask yourself this question and say what is the value of Allah subhanho wa Taala loving me. And then notice that Allah subhanaw taala is not talking about obedience. He's talking about love. He's talking about imitation
He's talking about being as close to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam as possible, about loving to imitate nahi Salah Salam and about the serious desire to become the Beloved of Allah.
For such people Allah subhanaw taala said that he will become sufficient, what does it mean? It means you raise your hand you ask Allah will give you
you don't want this.
You raise your hand you ask Allah will give you
whatever you ask Allah will give you
first minimum benefit of Allah loving you.
First main memory of it is that Allah subhanaw taala will give. So ask yourself these questions so that you will not regret the whatever you do Daedra my brother and sisters, it is the it's a widespread misunderstanding in the oma today. That to follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah surah Salam is something that Allah has left to the discretion of the individual, and that it is not very important in the individual's practice of Islam. Consequently, we often hear people speaking of the various una salatu salam in tones bordering on disdain. For example, people say oh, but after all that is only as soon as
somebody said this to Manasa
in Medina, he said to him, and he said, How am I gonna teach Hannah?
sumati China. Now mama gave a beautiful a beautiful answer, and I will translate that for you.
As a mother aka
the man said Oh, but it's only asuna
I said what you have said is correct. It is only asuna but the way you said it, this is COVID he said Your words are correct, but your tone is COVID.
So there is this widespread misunderstanding that to follow. The Sunnah is something that is left to our own whims and fancies, that it is not particularly important and that we can do it or we cannot do it. Either way, it is fine. I want to completely debunk this and to show you from the Quran and Sunnah, that the following of the Sunnah is fourth.
It is very, very critical for us to understand the importance of following the Sunnah and to differentiate between obeying the orders of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, which is Etihad and doing what he used to do even when he did not order it, which is called the diva.
Now this is especially important for those who wish for the love of Allah and for the acceptance of their da and who seek to be close to them. The way to that closeness of closeness to Allah is only through the blessed sunnah of his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this there is no way other than the way of hammer salon you sell them. If you want to get close to Allah subhana wa Jalla Jalla there is no closeness to Allah for those who reject or disregard or play down the importance of His Messenger sallallahu Sallam and his Sunnah. And please understand, you may not be saying it with your with your tongue, may Allah protect us from that, but our actions speak louder
than our words.
Allah subhanaw taala used to words in connection with his messengers of Allah Salah he taught obedience and Eva which is imitation or to copy or to follow about the importance of that obedience. cylinder many irons in the Koran, some of which Allah subhanaw taala said in Serato Nisa, my youth Rasulullah Hakata Allah woman tamela Marsala Galle him hafizullah he said he who obeys he that he obeys the messenger Muhammad, Salah Salem has obeyed Allah and he who turns away then we have not sent you or Mohammed Salah is Allah as a watcher over those people.
Allah made the obedience to His Messenger, a condition of human and he said that a person has no faith until he not only obeyed Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam completely without question, but he did not even have any resistance in his heart about the orders of resources and please notice,
we are accountable to Allah subhanaw taala for our speech and our actions, what is in our heart, Allah has not held us accountable for this. This is the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala our thoughts and our feelings, Allah has left them free until we express these thoughts, until we express this feeling and then this feeling and this thought becomes either something which is culpable or something which is
which is worthy of praise and which is
rewardable right? But with regard to obedience novellas, Allah, Allah subhanaw taala even held what is in the heart as accountable.
And not only did Allah hold us accountable Allah subhanaw taala made this a condition of Iman itself. Allah said fala hora pika la umino una de you Heikki muka FEMA rabina home. Suma de Du de an Uzi him heritage. Mima. hodeida while you Sal de muchos, Lima, Allah, Vanessa But no, by your Rabbi Allah subhanaw taala Touka kasamba himself. Allah subhanho wa Taala took an oath by himself, follow Arabic Allah is swearing by himself. What is what is bigger than that? What is a more commanding oath than Allah subhanaw taala taking the oath by himself,
says Viola or a beaker were really and truly by but no law. But no by Europe, they can have law you may know that they have no human until they make you Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam the judge in all disputes between them.
samalla Yaga doofy unfussy him.
They made you the judge in all disputes between them.
They accept your judgement completely without question and they do not find inside their heart Even they find in themselves no resistance against your decisions, and they accept your decisions with full submission.
Allah saying they are not even Muslim until they obey you completely without question without argument. And on top of that, they do not even feel in their heart that this decision this judgement or source or asylum is really not fair. They don't like it or dislike it. Allah said even if they feel that in their heart, Allah subhanaw taala says they are not to
think about this. How many of us think that wearing the trouser above the ankles?
I want to say many of the statements that I have heard May Allah protect me and not call me the witness against those people who make those statements.
What do we say about things which we consider to be unimportant?
And please note I have not mentioned the beard

It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed in a matter, that they should have any opinion Other than that, that they should have any option in their decision. And whosoever obeys Allah and His Messenger sallallahu wasallam whosoever disobeys Allah, Allah, Whosoever disobeyed Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger Allah, he has indeed gone far away straight in plain error.
My brother and sisters, these are among several others of similar meaning clearly emphasize the importance of obeying Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam as being something that is a condition of faith. obedience to the power is a condition of faith. And it is critical to the perfection of the faith. And Allah subhanho wa Taala stated is categorically The principle is established therefore, that gives an order He must be obeyed without question without argument. And we as Muslims must not even have a thought or a feeling in our hearts against that decision.
I want to end here with this because this will continue next year. Also, I just want you to stay with this.
We have not yet completed all the tasks on the table. We will come to that in more detail next to my agenda, but look at the issue of what Allah subhanaw taala said obeying Mohammed Salah Allah Allah He was I was on the condition of Eman without that the person has no human and that obedience has to be not as I like as I don't like I take some idea of some No, whatever he decreed whatever he ordered, we obeyed completely. We obey it without argument we obeyed without question and we do not even have a thought or a feeling in our
