jolla have in
we begin it In the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala praise and glory belongs to a love, a glorified exalted, we thank you, and we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure and his forgiveness.
And we seek protection of love from evil whispers of our souls and the evil consequences of our actions. For remember, love guides, no one can lead astray and remember our loved leaves astray, no one can guide and we testify that no one is worthy of our worship with a low low without any partners, the true supreme King, as a prophet Muhammad
was a prophet and his service and His Messenger
lies so just pulls out.
Believers oh you have believed in have the tough love of love fear of love now and keep your duty to Allah now.
In the event that he deserves and do not die in a state of complete and total surrender to a lot a state of submission and compliance and love and devotion did not meet a lot of chapter found that now after Welcome my brothers and sisters in the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
This reminder is afternoon inshallah, we'll be with regards to the reality of being near to Allah, what is meant by being loved by Allah subhana wa Tada.
And this is a reminder from Allah
was narrated by His prophets
on the third level.
He says that the prophets of Allah told us that all love the mighty and majestic says
when he when he and
whomever shows enmity to those near to me, I have declared war in such a first
learning and my sleep does not come closer to me with anything more beloved to me, than what I have made an obligation upon him when I
tell him and my slave continues to come close to me with the recommended acts until I love him,
too, and then when I love him,
I become his hearing that he hears
and his eyesight that he sees with
his hand by which he strikes or the MGB and his leg by which he walks when the insulin interfere in and if he asks me I will surely give you what it is that I need or effeminate. If he seeks protection me I will surely executive one I thought that too fishy.
And I've never hesitated in anything I've done to the field of the NFC movement, yet.
My hesitation in pulling the soul of my believing sleep, meaning that who hates to die, and I hate to bother. I hate to harm them. I hate to annoy him.
This beautiful Hagia embodies for us some very important markers to determine who is the one that is truly near to all the love and what it is like when a person gets to that stage when they are near to a loved and beloved by
to begin the hiding says whoever declares Edmondson shows adamancy shows animosity to those that are my own Odia is roughly translated many places seats and saints has a bit of a culture meaning behind this culture. We think of the saints of other religions, or the saints that people that are VIP in the religious sphere, right.
But our Deen gave us that term.
In reality means those that are near to Allah. Allah tells us that these are not a special group of people that you can reach right where every single believer is near to Allah subhanho wa Taala even if they may vary and how near they are
As it says at a no deal loving left home
in the LDF those that are very near to Allah, there is no fear for her. nor will they grieve.
those that have emerged these,
these are those those that have Emad and have tough what have piety they are God fearing. So every person that is a person of the man and he has some sort of fear of Allah, that He is
God and He is near to Allah, and degree that you your Elan gross, and you talk for your fear in 32 I love gross. That is how we are you are to a muscle.
But meaning is applies to every believer on one level or another. Whomever shows enmity to my Olia those near to me, meaning the believers when I have declared the war upon them,
some of the scholars is Wait a minute, why does this happen? Say Allah has declared war on such a person? Because a war is a back and forth struggle, right? A war is when there's one and then a comeback, and then a strike and then a return and then a backlash and then a regroup and then it goes back and forth like this. How can that be when no one can stand in front of a lot, and there is no mic or power it says by a muscle.
They said perhaps of the reasons why a lot more detail war is because when people show enmity to the believers, Allah allows them to go on for a bit for wisdom that he does.
So that the believers maybe even during their event, or he may choose
martyrs to raise them the level of genuine answer so that those with blackened hearts may continue to go farther down the road of destruction, they may think they're actually in charge, they may actually think the matter is under control. And then a lot of shocks.
As the prophets Allah says in the law,
so many new fleets, Indeed, Allah gives her a spike and gives a time a waiting period, he delays for the oppressor, but then when he finally grabs if he doesn't allow them to slip.
So a lot of times allows us to go on, but a person must always remember
that those that will press the Muslims remember the times of weakness and many of us in our lives, that paid us those that blocked and fight and invest and work, they are all moving about within the grip of Allah, it appears to us that it's a clash between one and another, when in reality, they are at the root of love, because they are the believers, and are must have at war with them, meaning it is just a matter of time, because Allah has said to him every chose energy, any shortage of energy, to those that are near to meet the believers, I have declared war in such a first.
And then the headache continues to explain to us how a person attains that level of near the swamp. How do you climb that staircase of nearness to Allah subhana wa Tada. It's not favoritism. A loss does not show unfairness or injustice to anyone, there is an equal opportunity for every believer, men and women born Muslim or convert young or old at climbing that staircase. And it continues and says,
and my sleep does not come closer to me that you find that ladder with anything more beloved to me, and the obligations, which I have made obligatory on what I mean by him. So we are to understand, and this is not a vector of difference of opinion, as I always say, this is a matter of the scholars, as soon as unanimously agree upon because of this idea that the most important thing in Islam. And the most rewarding thing in Islam, in every given moment is that which is an obligation, we must always remember that because at times shame on plays this trick with us, when we become selective with our religion, I'll do this snap is in a bed, oh, it's okay. I don't have to do that
because I'm doing this no the duty of the hour. So it's time for solar, for example, there is nothing on the face of the earth that is more important than solid nor more rewarding than solid, nor will bring you closer to Allah, beloved to Allah, Allah. This, by the way, requires a bit of elaboration because duties change and sometimes the duty of this hour is not the duty of that hour. And that's why they were those the profits of the law.
We don't have to go defend the profit. We don't have to go and do the difficult test because we are people that we feed the people that come to the gamma and we live here in America with the Kava is so we are the best of people and they appease themselves. They're deluded in that sense. So on
Let's have a giant hedge. where Mr. President, how long did you consider meaning? Where is your mind? How do you measure that you consider you giving food to the pilgrims because you're the host of Mexican and you residing
in the Kaaba equal to those that believed in a lot. They're believers now. And in the last day and 14, we have a lot of time, how can that be? So for a person to make sure he's going in the right direction, he has to know that he must seek knowledge, knowledge of the deen until he reaches less. Or else you come to a time when you regret much of you like to say I was wasting my time doing things, even things in D and it was fun when I had a real obligation somewhere else in Ottawa.
When he heard that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, whomever preys on a genetic right preys on the funeral position, he gets one to one mountain of good deeds.
And whoever follows the agenda.
until he gets another deal, he gets to get up to the two mountains of good deeds. I couldn't believe that he went around to confirm that he verifies the restaurant really said this. And he found that he said it. He said how many mountains we've lost in our lives.
We weren't into seeking knowledge, because duties of the hour change, you know, the heartbeat of Georgia, that young worshiping man
and move away from the city and the sense of the city and its people and build, for example, a tree house.
And he worshiped a lot by day by night. And his mother would come to him and she would call out.
And it was sincere, let the floss but he didn't give enough dedication to knowledge. So he was not able to prioritize
the Oh my Lord,
my mother. So we took it logically speaking. So as for a mother, my mother is a creation. So I'm going to become the creator over the creation. And you continue to make smaller, and she would keep calling him and looking for him and calling out to me. Here's her voice. And you can see my soul that much more important. So she made against out of frustration. And this is where I was accepted from her and he went through an ordeal that was not long enough for us to mention here. He went through an ordeal in his life, her being accepted and was not an oppressor. That means that he deserved it, or else it wouldn't have been accepted.
Why did he deserve it? The majority of the scholars said this has been disproved that if you're praying Salah, that's not
the most important action ever. But if you're not an obligatory scholar, and your mother calls you that in that case, leaving the sada in which is recommended at that point, so that there's not an obligatory Sala would be an obligation, because responding to your mother's model mandatory and staying in your salon that recommended size that is recommended. So it requires a bit of knowledge, or else we could be wasting our lives at times my sleep does not come closer to me with anything more beloved to me, they will find it an obligation upon him. Like it
shows you the wisdom of the companions and how key they were to seek that knowledge so that they don't fall into this dilemma.
And so I
said to the prophets of Allah,
or messenger of Allah, what is the superior deed in the sight of Allah, Allah, Allah,
Allah on time, the obligatory praise the freedom on time, and especially in the, in the beginning of his time, he said, a
messenger of Allah. He said,
he could see your parents, he said to me,
he said, she has a piece of striving. And the
question is, why did he say and then what, what's next? What is it because he didn't want to do those before the next one? Or is it because he wanted to make sure he knew the origin so that if he couldn't do what we do the next Xbox Live for one, he went to number two didn't go to number 19. He wanted to understand the value of the deeds. So the most beloved act to Allah is the act of reality. Many times we don't see this. This means that praying
write any day of the year is more rewarding. It's an obligation than you standing up. Praying elicited How long was 15 years in the first block and 15 years in the second column, the 27th of Ramadan. That's what it means. That's an obligation This one is speaking.
The same trick when
you find someone violating
Sacred and violating the sanctity of the Muslims to go beat someone up and get to the Blackstone, Blackstone is Mr has been circumvented by the scholarly agreement, no one said it's obligatory. Why? Because he doesn't have the right gauge. And my sleeve does not come closer to me with anything more beloved to me, the things I have made obligatory upon what I said.
And my sleeve continues to come closer to me with the things that I have recommended meaning as to the obligations that he continues to come closer to me with the things that are recommended acts until I loved him.
So then, as is the recommended, but there is something that needs to be said about the word recommend
that this is only recommended.
When you are finished the obligations. And on the Day of Judgment, a person may realize that he needs the recommended just as much as he needs the obligation.
When he was told that this is necessary, this is recommended. It's okay, you can let this one go, you will have to do but mandatory. He said.
Even a gentleman for all. He said it's only natural for someone who finished the farm. Meaning How do I know? I
mean, you're supposed to do the phonics first. But what if I didn't know about, so I need to pack up as much as I can. Because he told us a lot wise in our personal community of judges who saw that, for example, the first thing we'll get started is prayer. If that is well everything else goes well.
And if it is missing something, it will be said go check is never
go check is recommended that see if it can feel the crack, see if it can break the short digit.
So first of all, that should be considered for the Beatles we don't know yet or not, that sets a series which has to be there. But also the heartbeat says, and my sleep continues to come closer to me within
continues, there is nothing more Beloved, more beneficial to the believer, than his being consistent in his fields.
That is the fruits as the profits of
the most beloved act. So we're talking about how to be loved by love, right? The previous little event last month, if you remember, and part of that is loving a lot. I'm talking about something more important than loving a mother alive, she loves you.
Because not everyone that loves a lot reclaims to love and love really loves him. And our mothers always love them. And that's the most important part it's the most beloved actually,
is the most consistent that exists, even when there's little by slave continues to come closer to you know why? Because when you are consistent, and that's when it ultimately becomes easier.
Because every time you do the good deed after it becomes easier.
So you can climb that way but you have to push in the beginning. The same way the most dangerous thing for a person is to continuously commit sins, because every time you commit the sin, the sin after it will be easier.
every time the slave commits a sin a black.is stamped onto a disease, a stain, He says our stuff.
So if he pulls out and seeks forgiveness and returns to a love is hard to polish as soon as that seal that stain or that disease is removed,
He is waiting that amount of time. But if he continues, that's the point if he continues to commit that sin, it continues that state continues to spread until it overwhelms his heart.
And then he's a low level audio instead of reciting the ayah. Canon
imechanic Cebu no rather it was the cities that seal their hearts. rather a seal has covered their hearts because of that, which they used to earn. But by the way, it doesn't have to be like that. I mean, when I tell you there's a city, it's gonna make the next thing even easier. A person may assume Hello, so I committed this thing. There's no way I'm going to stop the next person. It doesn't have to be like that. I'm saying it is harder to stop. So do it now. Stop that said Now what's the proof that you can stop the slip you can stop the slide the slippery slope. He says to the level I didn't know what to say yet and hazard
and follow up your people need to have a good one quickly so that it may erase it and then start continuing and the good things. The most beneficial thing you can do is continue to pile on those good deeds and the most dangerous thing you can do is to continue to
By all those bad things, and you will know the little that piles up on the Day of Judgment, when almost tells you, for me, I'm
yada, whomever does the smallest amount of good, he's gonna see it. And whoever does the smallest amount of evil, he's gonna see me those little things, they're gonna have an effect. You may not realize it, you'll realize it. And he says, you kind of gotta ferment.
else you can hear it in that word, whomever
you hear the Arabic letters slowly dragged away from the fight, you get dragged away with what with your deeds, your good deeds, whoever slowly scrapes away from the fire and enters paradise, that success, you will know that every little thing will be affected. He continues to come closer to me, until I love him. For Allah Most Merciful is a loving, compassionate God's God, and any nation that believes the accusation of those that say we worship a loving God, worshipping a God that you have to fear a vegetable garden angry guy, the Muslim doesn't have his own religion. And that's what unfolds for that whispers until I love him that he says, you know, when someone loves you,
it says everything is finished. For most of Hannibal, God will never throw someone who loves him to fire for almost, I will never allow someone to fall into this belief or deviance. Once he loves him from us, I will never allow them to fall into sin after sin. No one is perfect going ever becomes an ancient, but once a love loves you, you become immune. So it says if
a person pushes the follow the obligatory and he continues to push with the recommended knees until he gets to a degree where our love loves and rewards who might be coming easy to be guided, he finds himself always in the right direction. If someone loves you, once our love song becomes a celebration, on Earth and in the heavens.
And Julian says the people of the heavens the residence of the skies are my love songs are so loving him.
And then acceptance is placed for him on Earth.
celebration, and acceptance this place for him on earth by the way, it means in the hearts of the believers.
And we can say this is among the non believers. But there will always remain those that are not rewards you by placing them as an obstacle in front of you. Those that are not rewards you by them making fun of us will always continue to arouse the profits of enemies because they are loved by one more than anyone. And then acceptance is placed for them on Earth. It's interesting if this had been of the
Bible, and for those who love love, the proof of that is to derive the prophecy and all the believers loving. Every true believer loves
evil, he answered upon the
message. He was crying out for my mother. So she does not stop cursing, she continues to pursue. She was not a Muslim at the time. So the prophets of the Love is a love of
Allah guide the mother
and make the two of them beloved to the people.
And I went back home and I found my mother ready to embrace Islam. And I continue on in my life and for as long as I live and I never met a believer except that he loved
these of the signs celebration as it's finished. And what places for him the one that is near to Allah is beloved by the people that have the signs of someone who is near to Allah.
He says and he continues to come closer to me with the reference if I love him, and then when I love him, I become this hearing that he hears with his eyesight that he sees with his hand that he strikes with his foot that he walks with and he asks me I give him my protection I protect
them meaning of that situation after the rest of
hungry. Masato Salama
Mohammed Abu Dhabi.
What is meant that when Allah subhanho wa Taala loves someone who becomes his hearing and his sight and his hand that is like, surely it cannot mean that Allah comes into that person for law is not part of his creation, nor can he ever be glorified is that because you say that I love
Everything is everywhere. In everything. Yes. And if he's in everything, I mean, you can worship anything, and you'd be worshiping.
And then I
mean, so what is it meant that a mob becomes a person's hearing that he hears within his sight bases within his hand that is strikes with his foot that he walks with. meaning of love accompanies that person with his guidance and his care and his safe garden. So he only hears that love wants him to hear.
It becomes the idea law protects him from evil, he refuses to get wrong, he can stand
up north to see anything displeases a love nor to use his hands.
He becomes a dedicated cherished slave mug in the truest sense of the word. That is the true proof that Allah loves.
It is not that I made a million dollars. That's not necessarily proof, even though
he asks me I give him and when he sees one prediction, I predicted, that is only proof that allows you if the first part is true, if you're the only ones. That's why
I buy someone even flying in the sky, he can perform miracles and walking on water, I will not give my verdict about him until I see how far he is.
Right? Because if a person is not close to Allah in His actions, he's not obeying a law fulfilling the father than fulfilling the nephew. And then he's performing miracles. That means for sure, sure. Right. That means he sold his soul to the devil. Where else is getting the power?
That means he could be in shape.
And that's one of those finances
and misty jabber, jabber for money dry.
Very scary. It is, don't you dare be fooled to think that I love responding to your drive automatically means that you are honored in the sight of Allah. So
he was supposed to give me an ID for your
bed. Because at times I love me respond to the driver person. Due to him being having no word was eyes. And due to him falling from all the words in the standards of love. So I'll give him to throw them away from his door get away. He distracts him with giving
us a new from such a thing. So the true way to measure is not to say Oh, yes, I do this.
But your business is from what you make from a drug money, alcohol money, Where's it coming from? Right, the true way to measure luck is a person to be standing there strict upon the guidance of us have had Awards on. And then if you're accepted that could be of the sign for the month necessarily. The true person that loves them opens his heart to lies because he paradise in the Hellfire and he locks on them. And he does everything he can to run away from the punishment of Allah and everything he can to remain with forever as an Abraham a law so that he finally mentioned his very last sentence. And I don't hesitate, just look at the value of the idea, the value of every believer, and
especially those that are even closer to the high believers, the elevated believers, and I don't hesitate in anything I do. The way Asante in the soul of my believing sleep. who hates to die. And I hate to harp
homes and be careful, because hesitation can happen because of ignorance. I don't know the consequences. So I hesitate. But it can also happen because of heat. Because of this, like you know, I know that this medicine is sour, right? But I'm still gonna take it I'll even pay a million dollars to get it back if I lose it. Because I'm sure of the consequences. Right? So hesitation doesn't always mean ignorance. I don't know what the aftermath hesitation could be because I hate the aftermath. Or I hate an aspect of it, like the soundness of medicine, and you are sure it will benefit you by us permission. Right? And he says that I don't have to say anything that I do. Like I
pulled the soul of my believing sleeve, who hates to die. And I hate to harm this.
Meaning he is so valuable the cycle of love. A mother's not like to beat him to death. But because there is greater benefit to him dying. That's the only reason I'm gonna put him through it has to be this way. The extensive wisdom of God knows that to show the worth of the believer, he created the universe and a person holds on to his event even as he steps into the unknown steps into that which you don't know what's gonna happen. You don't know what's gonna happen to you after that you walk into a world you've never seen before, and it still remains a believer. That's why I'm not going to this whole universe so there's greater benefit than him
and that shows you on your way
For the believer for someone who's near to Allah is the best thing that ever happened to. This teaches us that our law only allows human beings to die. believers in particular, because that's the best thing that ever happened. It's not always bad news or
high level minute, no. There is no absentee something that's absent from your life that the believer awaits. It's more beneficial for him that
is the reality. And what
do you love gender?
He said, Yes. Is it the love death, for you will not see that you will not see gender until you die.
Everyone's afraid to die. But know that for the believers that you're just walking into the unknown. And
no one ever gave me a gift, more beloved to me that I sent out.
It's our greeting as Muslims. And no one ever gave me news, more beloved to me than the death of my Muslim brother. I mean, I'm happy for him. Then he died on email. Of course, he said that he may cry because of the separation and the loneliness, but I'm happy for him. That's why I won't let it happen. Because it's good for him. Look at the worth of the believer in the sight
of the true believers. I'm gonna have to have an extra three minutes already, I was requested to remind all of you if you haven't heard already, even though many Muslims all over the United States, I've heard it was all over the news about the misuse of aid and Jersey City. This message is trying to rebuild from that fire that we saw everywhere that was all over the media outlets and the channels. And otherwise, if you saw the helicopter images that enough, you should know what happens is mystery. And we're not collecting funds
for anything with our own needs to come closer to break free of those sins before they overwhelm us. But that message just to say something for a minute, this is not a community trying to build itself, right. Sometimes we try to build the message helping the fundraiser, you're hoping at some point will come out of it. This is a message that is legal capacity is 1800 equal, and they still overflow into more. This is one of the premier massage in the United States. In reality, it's been around for 25 years and the fire burned into the ground. Right so if a person wants to see the reward of all of that,
if not all the joy and happiness of the mystery that was it broadcasted assuming that there's so many other massages around the country in reality, and many of our scholars will come overseas
I would ask you to ask Allah in the slot now to give you the strength to make a worthy donation and to be of those that need help uplifted from it's ideal, especially for the month of Ramadan This community has
to use us for his cause and allow us to feel privileged for such an opportunity and make us suppose they're ever near to Him say I mean
and Tony you have
a lot more solid.
