Step 4:
Love of Allah

Love of Allah is a condition of Imaan. It is a sign of the believers. “The people of faith are the people who love Allah more than anything else!”

“Say to them that if they love their parents, children, spouses and business…. More than they love Allah, Rasul (Saw) and jihad then wait for the punishment of Allah. Allah does not guide the people who are rebellious….”

The reason we love dunya is not because we consciously do it but because we have grown up in a system which teaches that our well-being is linked to that which is shallow and materialistic. But as Muslims we should know that our well-being is linked to Allah and Islam.

Love of Allah is unlike anything else. It is expressed only in obedience to Allah through sujood. Increase your sajdah! The life of a Muslim is a life in sajdah! Entire life is in obedience to Allah (swt). Muslims do not ask about small sins and big sins. We should care more about displeasing Allah rather than the severity of the sin.

How do we gain the love of Allah? We strive in obedience to Him (swt).
So what is the root to expressing the love of Allah? Following the Sunnah of Rasul (saw). Do not leave the Sunnah if you want Allah to love you!

What happens when Allah loves the individual?

“When Allah loves a person, He calls Jibreel and says: ‘I love So and so, so love him.’ So Jibreel loves him, then he calls out to the people of heaven, ‘Allah loves So and so, so love him.’ So the people of heaven love him and he finds acceptance on earth. If Allah hates a person, He calls Jibreel and says: ‘I dislike So and so, so dislike him.’ So Jibreel dislikes him, then he calls out to the people of heaven: ‘Allah dislikes So and so, so dislikes him.’ So they dislike him and he is disliked on earth.”

Popularity comes by pleasing Allah (Swt)

“My slave comes so close to me by fulfilling his obligatory and then his sunnah…until I begin to love him

This doesn’t happen automatically! It will happen only by efforts with Ibadah to please Allah!

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala COVID mursaleen Allah Allah He was happy he had made over it.

00:00:10--> 00:00:16

We have been talking about the way of developing tawakkol on Allah subhanho wa Taala in our hearts

00:00:18--> 00:00:37

and we talked about three steps, the first of which is Stover, the second of which is sour and sugar and the third of it inshallah today, which is the love of Allah subhanaw taala. So it's actually three what we spoke of it as four so it is tawakkol, sugar sour,

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

and de la velocidad Toba, Chicago suburb and the love of

00:00:46--> 00:00:49

the love of Allah subhanaw taala is a condition of human.

00:00:50--> 00:00:55

Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this as a sign of the believers.

00:00:57--> 00:01:16

Last Well, that is it. Well Lavina Amano, a shadow Allah. Allah said the people of faith. The people of Eman are the people who have who love Allah subhanho wa Taala more than anything else, a shadow Belinda? I shot this the superlative form of shadow

00:01:17--> 00:01:24

which is strong. So the love of Allah is so strong, that it is stronger than the love of anyone and anything else.

00:01:26--> 00:01:33

Allah subhanaw taala also want those who love things other than Allah Allah Allah.

00:01:34--> 00:01:41

Allah says in Surah Tauba Quran Cana Abba Akuma como como as Raja khumba Shira to come

00:01:45--> 00:02:01

on doc Shona Casa de hamasaki Nutella Donna ha ha by la comin Allah he was really he was he had in fees really for a bus ohata to LA be angry. Hola Hola. como el philosopy

00:02:03--> 00:02:44

said to his name is Allah, Allah, Allah Azza wa sallam. He said, say to them announced to them, that if they love their parents, and if they love their children, and if they love their brothers and sisters, and if they love their wives and husbands and if they love their families, if they love the business that they do, in which they fear a decline, if they love the wealth that they accumulate, and they look at it and they feel nice, and if they love their houses and homes and palaces, which they build and they look at them and they feel good about it. If they love all of these have by la comida la he was, he was he had invisibility. Allah said if you like them more than you love Allah,

00:02:44--> 00:03:19

if you love them more than you love rasulillah salam, and if you love them more than you love jihad, fiza Videla, then for Tara buss. ohata Yachty allow the Emery go and wait for the Azov of Allah to descend on your head. And unless it Allahu Allah Yeah, dill Komal phosphine Allah does not guide the people who are rebellious. So to love this dunya and to love anything other than Allah subhanho wa Taala more than we love Allah subhanho wa Taala is in Islam, it is a sign of the weakness of human or the lack of human.

00:03:21--> 00:03:34

So the love of Allah subhanaw taala is a condition of even the love of Allah subhanaw taala is a sign that we believe and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to fill our hearts with love for him which overrides and supersedes everything else.

00:03:35--> 00:03:56

The reason we love and we like generally the dunya is not because consciously we choose to like it more than Allah. But because we have grown up in a system, which tells us system which is run by Satan, and which tells us that our well being is linked to the material things.

00:03:57--> 00:04:13

The system tells us that our well being is linked to the material, whereas the column of Allah, the teaching of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam says that our well being is linked not to our material things, but to our connection with Allah.

00:04:14--> 00:04:19

We will be more loved and we will be more more influential and we will be we will be more

00:04:22--> 00:04:31

honored by people. Not because we have more money not because we have power and authority in this world, but only and only if Allah loves us.

00:04:33--> 00:04:54

This is what the dean tells us, where the dunia says that unless you have money, nobody will respect you unless you have power and authority nobody will respect you. But we also know the ones who have it and the ones who don't have it. The money comes and goes and power and authority comes and goes till today. You are serious today. You are a big

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

you know, like yesterday, I was in the in my own in the evening. I was at the

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

Give your park and they stopped all the traffic because the chief minister is going home.

00:05:07--> 00:05:09

So motorcade all the traffic everywhere stopped.

00:05:11--> 00:05:12

What happens if he loses the election?

00:05:14--> 00:05:21

Nobody gets two hoots after that he has to be here he's the one who's going to be stopped because I'm new to ministers going home. So what what value is that?

00:05:23--> 00:05:33

What value is that? The if you if you get this transitory some so called show some who called power what what what values that

00:05:34--> 00:05:51

now the only problem is that this is what we have been drilled into our heads. This is what has been drilled into our heads. So we don't understand we continue to just that, until one day we see welcome what may Allah save us from that fit. So the love of Allah Subhana Allah now

00:05:52--> 00:06:21

the love of Allah subhanaw taala is unlike the love of anyone and anything else. It is more than that. And it's also not like that. We don't love Allah like we love our children or our parents or whatever. The love of Allah subhanaw taala is expressed in only one way and that is obedience to Allah subhanaw taala the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala is expressed through the such the castrato salute, how do you get close to Allah by COSATU soldiers by increasing the amount of such that we make

00:06:23--> 00:06:30

this means literally in terms of the novel, and it also means allegorically in terms of obedience to Allah subhanaw taala

00:06:31--> 00:06:34

the life of the Muslim is alive in such

00:06:35--> 00:06:40

a Muslims that never comes up from sustain his whole life. 24 hours is in total,

00:06:41--> 00:06:51

before Allah subhanho wa Taala which means that his whole life is in obedience to Allah subhanaw taala the Muslim will only do that which he knows, will please Allah.

00:06:53--> 00:07:21

If there is a doubt, then he will not do that until he clarifies this doubt. And then of course he knows that it pleases Allah He will do it. And obviously he will never do something which he knows to be displeasing to Allah. It is not for the Muslim to ask questions like is this a small sin or a big signal? A Muslim is the one for whom displeasing Allah is not possible. So therefore, whether Allah subhanaw taala is displeased a little bit, or Allah subhanaw taala is displeased a great deal, who is to say,

00:07:23--> 00:07:26

who is to say they have been set?

00:07:27--> 00:07:36

punishments have been set for our benefit. You can't chop somebody's head for everything. So obviously you say, Well, this is a smaller set and that's the biggest thing.

00:07:37--> 00:07:39

But the sin for which

00:07:41--> 00:08:02

Allah subhanho wa Taala will punish as a sin that he will not punish or the sin for which he will punish more or less. This is why Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala is the molecule Huck, he is the king he is the true king and is the real King. So if Allah subhanaw taala even maybe we think it's a small thing, but if it displeases alive, that one action displeases Allah, then where do we go?

00:08:03--> 00:08:45

Similarly, we know from the Hadith, many other things where Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with somebody who is very small action. And that small action is enough for that person to be forgiven the rest of his life for the rest of his sins. A man gives water to a dog with a thirsty dog Janna now in our eyes What just are no big deal I mean, he's, he's not even spending from his pocket. Imagine he's taking water from a well and giving it to a dog the water the water in the world does not belong to Him. And giving it to a dog is not spending any extra effort or money or nothing, but just the action of a person being concerned about another creature. Allah subhanaw

00:08:46--> 00:08:47

taala

00:08:48--> 00:08:48

Allah gave him

00:08:50--> 00:08:59

so we must be constantly concerned about what pleases Allah subhanahu Wata Allah This is the sign of the love of Allah subhanaw taala

00:09:00--> 00:09:06

The key thing to remember I earned myself a new is not whether I Are you claim to love Allah or not.

00:09:07--> 00:09:10

The key thing is, does Allah love us or not?

00:09:11--> 00:09:24

Anybody can claim to love Allah Mira also claimed to love Allah Kabir also claimed to love Allah. And Allah Allah knows well, Allah loves them or doesn't love them. Right? I don't want to make fatwa on anyone. But my point is that many people in the world claim to love Allah.

00:09:26--> 00:09:34

That is not the issue. The issue is does Allah love that person or not? Because unless Allah subhanaw taala loves that person, nothing will change.

00:09:37--> 00:09:56

So how do we get Allah subhanaw taala to love us by being obedient to Allah subhanaw taala and then what happens if we do that? First of all, what did Allah subhanaw taala say about those who claim to love him? I was calling quantum to a boon Allah for Wi Fi. You have koala

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

Nova calm or low for

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

Rahim Allah doesn't say to those who claim to love Allah. Make my diva. Follow my Sunnah.

00:10:09--> 00:10:11

And if you do that what will happen?

00:10:12--> 00:10:14

Then Allah subhanaw taala will love you

00:10:17--> 00:10:19

and love you love you and what happens if Allah loves you?

00:10:20--> 00:10:53

You're feeling robocon all over him that Allah subhanaw taala will then forgive all your sins and Allah is over over here. So what is the route to expressing the love of Allah? The sunnah of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is that there are no foggy areas. It has not been left to us to devise our own methodology of showing our love for Allah. I want to show my love for Allah standing in a river, up to my waist in water was one one leg and worshiping Allah as the sun is rising. No, this is not Islam.

00:10:55--> 00:11:03

love of Allah has to be expressed in the methodology or in the method in the way that is shown by one was Rasulullah sallallahu.

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

So if we love Allah,

00:11:07--> 00:11:22

if someone is leaving the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and claims to love Allah, then there is no connection with that he's a liar is that is that his word is not to be taken. Because when Allah subhanaw taala specifically mentioned that say to those who claim to love me for

00:11:24--> 00:11:32

follow my sooner and somebody said, No, no, that's not important for me, I will do my own thing. And I will show my love for Allah, that love is not acceptable to Allah.

00:11:34--> 00:11:42

As simple as that, Allah has made it very clear. And then the final point before we close, what happens if Allah loves you?

00:11:43--> 00:11:49

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us among those who he loves. inshallah, what happens a lot of the individual

00:11:51--> 00:11:54

to Alice, both narrated by Laura Delano,

00:11:56--> 00:12:16

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Azza wa sallam said, When Allah subhanho wa Taala loves somebody called zebra Salaam and announces to jabril and says, I love so and so by name. And as soon as he makes this announcement in the heavens, that Allah subhanho wa Taala love so and so therefore you also love him,

00:12:18--> 00:12:28

him or her whoever the person is, and Allah and rasulillah salam said, and that announcement then goes down into the hole of creation.

00:12:29--> 00:12:35

So from the heavens, it comes into the earth, and is their love for that individual is established in the hearts of people.

00:12:37--> 00:12:46

And you find that people who don't even know you, they love you, they will respect to them and honor you. And vice versa when somebody Allah subhanaw taala disliked somebody

00:12:48--> 00:13:02

said Allah subhanaw taala called zebra Salam and in and announces driven says, I dislike so and so. And Jeeva Salam announces this to the heavens and says Allah subhanho wa Taala dislike so and so therefore, you also hate it.

00:13:03--> 00:13:06

And hatred for this person is established in all of

00:13:08--> 00:13:34

those who are interested in becoming popular and so on and so forth. Where is this root of popularity, which where you Where do you have to strengthen your line with Allah subhanaw taala popularity does not come by pleasing people popularity does not come by saying whatever suits people so that you become no popularity comes by pleasing Allah subhanaw taala if Allah subhanaw taala is pleased, then popularity will happen, then people will be inclined towards you and people will love you.

00:13:35--> 00:13:36

And the last or this was

00:13:37--> 00:13:43

before we close, where Allah subhanaw taala said that my slave comes so close to me.

00:13:45--> 00:13:53

My slave comes close to me, by his for our aid, by fulfilling the obligatory duties.

00:13:55--> 00:13:58

And then he continues to come close to me through his novel.

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

And the novel is included not only enough is Allah, but all forms of novel Kairos aka the reading of the Quran, Vicar, and so on and so on.

00:14:11--> 00:14:48

Until I begin to love him. As Walter says, my slave comes close to me until I begin to love him. So the first lesson to understand is it is not going to happen automatically. It won't happen because you are somebody's grandson or grandfather. It won't happen because you are Indian or Chinese or Arab. It won't happen for any of these reasons or any other reasons you might think it won't happen because you're black or white or Indian or otherwise you're not you know it will happen and won't happen only by your and my effort to please Allah and my Your and my effort in it the bother of Allah subhanaw taala

00:14:50--> 00:14:51

very clear.

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

I was rather this did not say I slave come so close to me because he's one so sir, no, my slave comes close to me. My first full

00:15:00--> 00:15:24

filling the void. And after that doing extra doing more than our fill, until I begin to love him. And then our last one that I said when I love him, I become the hand by which his tracks and holes, I become the eyes by which he sees I become the ears by which he hears I become the tongue by which he speaks I become the leg or the foot by which he walks

00:15:26--> 00:16:07

and the llama, the Madison have explained his service, not to mean that you become God, because that is a big fidra where people interpreted this as rather than Buddha nature, Anak and they were cleared out of Islam, the modesty and have interpreted this to mean that therefore Allah subhanho wa Taala guards every aspect of that person, when I when Allah says, I become die, by which he says, What does it mean? It means that that person there will never see anything, which is Allah and Allah subhanaw taala will give him basura that person will see more than what the normal person sees. For example, it says an hour of the era delana it was, it was mature, it was very famous that he would

00:16:07--> 00:16:12

look at a person and he would know his character. What kind of individual is this?

00:16:13--> 00:16:19

How does that happen? This is the truth of the moment. And this comes from being closed Allah subhanaw taala.

00:16:20--> 00:16:32

When Allah says, I become the hand by which yours What does it mean? It means that any action that person does, Allah will put Baraka in that, when the hand even raises his hand to make dua to Allah subhanaw taala will be accepted

00:16:33--> 00:16:36

anything the person touches will become good inshallah

00:16:39--> 00:16:42

and so on and so on. So, it does not mean that the person becomes God, no.

00:16:43--> 00:16:50

And then Allah subhanaw taala said, and I declare war, against the one who travels such a slave of

00:16:51--> 00:17:00

Allah subhanaw taala declared war only against two people in this whole world. One is against Ebola, and the other one is against the people who deal in Riba.

00:17:02--> 00:17:06

People who deal with interest to people against Ebola, specifically use the term harp,

00:17:08--> 00:17:13

the war Allah declare war against the one who travels a slave of mine of the state.

00:17:15--> 00:17:29

So be very clear, very careful. And don't play with those people who are the people of Allah. And people Allah is not alone that no and people of Allah is not also a permanent state for somebody No.

00:17:32--> 00:17:40

The permanent state university Delano, very famous quote by him, he said, do not follow the living. He said follow only the dead.

00:17:41--> 00:17:46

Is it what do you mean? He said, Follow only the sub avasarala mo passed away.

00:17:47--> 00:18:31

Because they can do no wrong, the one who's alive can always make a mistake. Whoever it is, no matter how big a valley of Allah is, he can make a mistake and we ask Allah to forgive us and to keep us safe from that. Let no word escape our tongue and let no action escape our hands, which can lead us into corporate sick, until we die, let us die in a state of safety which is which is a state where a less please with us. So let's run through the date I declare war on the one who travels or who tries to do harm to the slave of mine who I love. And there are lots of others that and I hesitate the greatest in taking his soul because he does not like to die.

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

We all everybody dislikes death.

00:18:36--> 00:18:55

But he has to die the one day that has to come but unless it I hesitate even to take so even to any topcliffe any difficulty any pain to that person Allah subhanaw taala said that even if it is his color, and he has to have it Allah subhanaw taala will make it as easy as possible for him and Allah has it is to give him that Turkey.

00:18:56--> 00:19:19

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to enter us and make us among his Olia. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to do all that we can in order to reach a place where Allah subhanaw taala will love us. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept that. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make this for us and for our families, those who are here and those who are not yet was Allah Allah, Allah will Karim Allah Allah He was happy is me.
