Salam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. Olam, alumina main founder and founder of you might have lived in, was it no element? Mean? We ask Allah azza wa jal teachers would benefit us. Benefit from what you told us and increase us in knowledge. I mean, yeah, but I mean, my dear beloved the specter brothers and sisters, ask Allah subhanaw taala to make me and you are from the people who would witness Ramadan and keep us from the people who will do their best in the month of Ramadan and accept from them in the month of Ramadan, me and me.
Tonight in sha Allah Allah, we want to discuss a matter that's
every true believers wish and hope and that is to gain the love of Allah azza wa jal.
There are many
ways where Allah subhanaw taala told us how to gain his love. And there are many Hadith that told us how to earn the love of Allah azza wa jal from the Quran Allah subhana wa Taala told us call in Kentucky to hipbone Allah, that Debbie only you have Kamala if you are claiming that you love Allah azza wa jal, this is something that we all say, okay, then how can we earn the love of Allah because the love will be
very meaningful when it's mutual. So I love Allah we all love Allah azza wa jal, but our dream and the main goal is to gain the love of Allah in this area. Allah told us how to gain his love. He said, Follow Rasulullah Salallahu Salam, follow him by believing in Him by applying as many Sooners as possible in your life.
You will gain the love of Allah azza wa jal we all know this from the Quran. And we all know the other Hadith were also salam told us that Allah said the Hadith that Omar Zela Abdi omega zero Abdi at Aqaba, Ilya been aware Phil Haibo and my Abbott keeps performing optional a Baghdad until I love him. So performing the optional a buy that from for example, the optional Salah, the Sunless Allah, the Doha, the the tahajjud, all these Salah that are optional, it will make us gain the love of Allah, performing the optional fasting the fasting of Monday and Thursday the fasting of the three wide days, fasting of Ashura out of all these optional fast will make us gain the love of Allah, the
optional charity that the Zakat is afforded and other charity the sadaqa is optional. The more we do of that also, the more we will get the more the possibility of gaining the love of Allah as urgent. Those two things we all know them. But today I have a hadith Subhanallah that mentioned three things that if we do them, we gain the love of Allah and the love of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and all three things are mentioned in one Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said,
whoever is pleased to love Allah and His Messenger or to be loved by Allah and His Messenger salatu salam, let him be truthful. When ever he or she speaks,
let him fulfill the trust to whom it is do
second, third, and let him treat Well, anyone who would be his or her neighbor. And the hadith is in tribal Iman and the hadith is Hassan.
So three things that are so much I Sallam told us if we do them, we will gain the love of Allah and the love of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we have to have a disclaimer of course, that that does not mean I don't pray, I don't do my zakat. I don't fasten Ramadan, I commit all major sins, and then I do these three things and expect to gain the love of Allah and the love of Rasul Allah says Allah, obviously, we have to be doing our best in all the obligation and staying away from the major sins, and then this hadith apply to us. First, being truthful. My brothers and sisters are soulless, SLM, told us that Sudak lead to better and better leads to gender. When we are
truthful, it would lead us
To the level of better, which is the highest level of righteousness, and righteousness lead to gender. And Allah told us in the Quran to be truthful, even if it was against ourselves tell the truth, even if it was against yourself or your family members, being truthful will save us in the dunya and save us in the accurate because lying some people take lying as something very simple. Lying is a major sin. Lying is a major sin. Some people lie so much that they start believing themselves Subhanallah So, the first characteristic that we should adhere to and apply in our life is to be truthful, in everything we do, truthful when we sell truthful when we buy, truthful when we
treat our children, truthful when we are dealing with our spouse, truthful when we are dealing with non Muslims, truthful in every aspect of our life.
The only three situations where Rasulullah Sallam told us that lying is permitted. Number one is at war, like if you were captured, and you were told, where are the weapons or where is your friends hiding, you're allowed to lie in that situation. Second is to fix to mend the relationship between two people, you're allowed to lie to this person to tell them that, oh, this person is very sorry, he would like to, you know, mend the relationship with you, in order to bring peace between them. And third between the spouses, in order to increase the love between one another, they're allowed to use some lies also, in general.
being truthful, is one of the ways that will make us earn the love of Allah and the love of his Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Second, do that to mean to fulfill your Amana fulfill your trust. If somebody trusts you something, I am going to hash and I left my
car, at your driveway, I am leaving to work. And I left my son or my daughter with you as a trust, I am traveling for a long period of time, and I left a certain amount of money with you. When I come back, I must find whatever I entrusted you with exactly the same, you did your best to protect that trust. And there's one thing that we take it lightly and we do not know that it is a form of trust. And that is when someone confide when someone opens up and trust me and tells me a secret. And he says, you know This is between me and you. So if someone comes to you and tells you this is something that nobody knows about, this is confidential. Please do not tell anyone. Now the minute
he says Do not tell anyone the statement he's about to say the incident is about to see it becomes a secret and it becomes an Amana, Amana, unfortunately, many people when you tell them that they go to another person, and they say, I'm gonna tell you something, but make sure do not tell anybody I promised them I'm not gonna tell. The minute you do that you have broken the Amanar you have broken the trust, you have ruined the trust, you have lost that opportunity. You have to make a step far you have to ask Allah for forgiveness. So telling someone telling each other a secret that's a form also of of a man. And the last one Subhanallah
treatment to the neighbor, be good to whomsoever is your neighbor? Many of us my brothers and sisters we live by,
by our neighbor for years, and we have no clue what the name is. Many of us live by in a neighborhood and we have no clue. What do they do? How, how can we help them if they need anything? Did they? Are they sick? Are they somebody in their family die? We have no clue, no relationship whatsoever. And we all know how important it is in Islam taking care of the neighbors. So allah sallallahu Sallam he said, Well Hola, hola, yo, Min wala Hila yo min well Hola Hola, yo, when he repeated three times, he he swore by Allah that that person is not a believer is not a true believer. So the Sahaba were in he was scared who's that person that you are swearing your ERA
Salalah he's not a true believer. He said, The One Thing was neighbor is not safe from his harm. And we all know the Hadith that you briefed, came to me and kept on telling me to take care of the neighbor until I thought that the neighbor is going to inherit from me
Subhan Allah, my brothers and sisters. When was the last time you went to your neighbor and you gave them just
Have dish that you cooked extra, and you consider a small part to the neighbor. When was the last time you were in the market and you find the bananas, oranges on sale and you said you know what? I'm going to take some and give them to my neighbor. Especially if the neighbors are non Muslims. Show them the generosity of stamps, show them the how much we care and how important it is to be good to our neighbor. Allah if we act as true Muslims to our neighbors.
Then when someone when someone list his house for sale, he would write down four bedrooms, three bathrooms, one living room, one kitchen and the Muslim neighbor. That will raise the price of the house if we are true Muslims. Why? Because a Muslim neighbor, he does not drink. He does not play loud music. He does not cheat. He does not lie. He is always quiet. He's always helping. He's always greeting me. Subhanallah no drugs, no staying out all night. No, you know Subhanallah it's a pleasure to have a Muslim neighbor, but we have to act and behave like Rasulullah Sallam told us towards our neighbors. So Subhanallah look at our deen how how much?
How much pleasure how much reward you will get just by taking care of your neighbor Subhanallah so my brothers and sisters, those are the three things that if we constantly practice them, we will gain the love of Allah, the love of Allah. Do you know what does that mean? Subhan Allah, when Allah loves you, He will announce that to the Gibreel and Jabril will love you. And then Gibreel will announce it to the angels and the angels will love you. And then old people on Earth would love you and they will have COBOL acceptance on earth and every time somebody sees you, they would love you and love to be with you. Allahu Akbar, gaining the love of Allah is the wish of every true believer.
So being truthful. Fulfilling the trust and being good to our neighbors will make us gain the love of Allah. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant me and you His love. And I ask Allah subhanaw taala to make our last these our best deeds and our last words Illa Illa Allah I love you all for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah, masha Allah Allah Allah and stuff you look at on a Toby like you tab on
