00:00:10 --> 00:00:18

selling robotic Island Avena has given me an email Mina wishes he will pass him did not deliver early or something he will tell you.

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

We praise a lot of mighty and we send prayers and blessings upon the final messenger and the Beloved of Allah subhanaw taala and the beloved of this ummah, Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, their brothers and sisters, we continue with the topic of loving last panel with the Hydra.

00:00:40 --> 00:00:40


00:00:42 --> 00:00:57

we promised to continue with from last time so we are continuing the issue of loving Allah azza wa jal, last time, we were with the methods right, the methods to achieve the love of Allah subhanahu wa.

00:00:58 --> 00:01:00

So we will continue with that inshallah.

00:01:02 --> 00:01:34

Last one, I believe that we stopped with is making a loss, that is love, above one's own love and desires. Everything that allows those loves, is above what I love. Everything that Allah Allah loves, I put it above my own lowly and vain desires, brothers and sisters, if you can come closer together so I can move my neck less, right and left because I have to speak to you and I have to look at you. This way, this way, not closer to me but closer to each other in sha Allah. This is how

00:01:36 --> 00:01:41

we will love each other also more. And Allah loves that the Muslims love each other.

00:01:43 --> 00:01:48

So making the love of Allah subhanaw taala above our own loves and our own desires.

00:01:50 --> 00:02:31

Anything where you have a certain desire, and it goes against what Allah azza wa jal loves, immediately prefer and give preference to the love of Allah subhanaw taala like this, slowly, you will achieve Love of Allah in your heart, and Allah loving you in return. And this is the way of the of those who love each other always. And that's why we always take it back and give a world the example as a wife or a father or a husband, when your beloved wants something and you want something and you choose and you give preference to what they want and what they love. This is the way to build love in the relationship.

00:02:32 --> 00:02:35

A simple example, very simple one but

00:02:36 --> 00:02:40

it shows obviously the knowledge of this Imam also is when an imam is

00:02:42 --> 00:02:58

very famous. In terms of Hadith, and narrations of Hadith, one of the companions of Imam is away. At one point, maybe he was asked maybe he was saying it on his own accord. He said Allah loves the truth. And

00:03:00 --> 00:03:04

he's about to make a confession that is difficult to make. He said

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

of course and

00:03:08 --> 00:03:13

another famous scholar also is more knowledgeable and scholarly than me.

00:03:14 --> 00:03:41

Was Was color isn't as hot as something really to be mentioned. He is saying, I will obey their customers and Salah is more knowledgeable and scholarly than me. Why is he saying this? Because he said, This is the truth and Allah loves the truth. And therefore he loves to say what Allah subhanaw taala loves, please, putting Allah and His love, above his own desire. Maybe

00:03:42 --> 00:03:46

he is a great scholar and a great Imam that people look to and

00:03:48 --> 00:03:55

put their finger at saying this is the great Imam and it's happened right away and so on. But he puts the love of Allah, Allah above

00:03:56 --> 00:04:06

his own desire. When we spoke about making Allah subhanaw taala more beloved to us than everything else in this world. We said this is something

00:04:07 --> 00:04:35

difficult, and something that requires a lot of efforts and a lot of work. And part of making a loss plan to hire the most Beloved to us, is making sure that you don't love something in this dunya more than Allah subhanaw taala and in this, I mentioned a scary statement that is mentioned in several of his books, where he said, If you love something more than Allah subhanaw taala you will be punished by it.

00:04:36 --> 00:04:38

In this dunya not in an

00:04:40 --> 00:05:00

if you love something more than you love Allah azza wa jal you will be tested with that what you love so beware. And this is something that has actually happened. There are real stories real life stories that I can tell you, of people. You know, a certain person maybe loving his daughter more than anything else in this world and

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

Maybe more than Allah azza wa jal and then Allah azza wa jal tested him with that dollar. And he

00:05:06 --> 00:05:12

went crazy for a certain period of time before he came back to his senses and he came back to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:22

This has happened. And by the way, we're not talking about the front we're talking about the levers. We're talking about pious people also. But

00:05:23 --> 00:05:35

they love something so much in this dunya maybe they imagine they can never do without it. My brothers and sisters, the only thing that you can do without in this dunya

00:05:36 --> 00:05:40

is Allah subhanaw taala everything else can be sacrificed.

00:05:42 --> 00:06:19

You cannot do everything that you you cannot do without the only thing you cannot do without is Allah. Everything else you can do without right? Beware don't say oh, if something happens to the to the following person that says I am going to her I will die. Don't talk like this. This is just between husband and wife and vice versa. Where they say to each other I can never do without to you or my loved ones. Okay, this is things you say as far as the relationship but in reality, the only thing you can do without that you cannot do without is Allah subhanaw taala

00:06:20 --> 00:06:28

that type of unconditional love is only for Allah subhanaw taala beware of loving something besides Allah subhanho wa Taala

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


00:06:34 --> 00:06:35

next method

00:06:38 --> 00:06:39

following prophets and found that

00:06:40 --> 00:06:41

this is

00:06:42 --> 00:06:52

one of the most important methods for achieving the love of Allah, because Allah mentioned this, specifically in the Quran when he said that was

00:06:59 --> 00:07:01

only the only

00:07:02 --> 00:07:03


00:07:10 --> 00:07:12

say to them, oh Muhammad, Allah.

00:07:14 --> 00:07:15

If you

00:07:16 --> 00:07:18

love Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:19 --> 00:07:25

then follow me, follow Prophet Muhammad, Allah, then Allah azza wa jal will love you.

00:07:26 --> 00:07:38

He did not say that you will love Allah. He made us even me gave me more important reward. And that is that Allah will love you. He didn't say

00:07:39 --> 00:08:03

to everyone Allah says, Allah, so necessarily, not only have you achieved Love of Allah in your own heart, when you follow Prophet Muhammad salah, more importantly you achieve the love of Allah for you when you follow the one he loves, and that is Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he loves that he that you follow his beloved guide.

00:08:05 --> 00:08:09

When you love Allah, you will love whom he loves. So you will learn from it.

00:08:10 --> 00:08:21

And when you learn from him necessarily you will follow Him, you will emulate him, right? So when you emulate the Salah, you're doing it out of your love for him and when you love

00:08:22 --> 00:08:51

him, then Allah subhanaw taala will love you in return. This is very important. If someone cleans they love Allah azza wa jal and you look at their life and there is very little of the Sunnah in this person's life, there seems to be some problem in his love of Allah subhanaw taala may not be sincere, it may not be true. Because if you love Allah, you will follow a prophet and this is the ultimate

00:08:53 --> 00:09:13

standard and gauge by which you gauge someone's love of Allah subhana wa Tada following the Beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in everything in our whole life, going after his guidance going after his sunnah, learning his Hadith and spreading it amongst people, okay? Everything that you can imagine

00:09:14 --> 00:09:18

things that are outward, okay? And things that are inward,

00:09:19 --> 00:09:21

that someone is truly falling.

00:09:22 --> 00:09:28

In sha Allah, they have love of Allah, Allah in their heart, and Allah azza wa jal loves them in return.

00:09:30 --> 00:09:33

following Prophet Muhammad Sall Allahu Allah he was okay

00:09:40 --> 00:09:42

another way to achieve the love of Allah

00:09:44 --> 00:09:45

asked for it

00:09:47 --> 00:09:54

the shortest paths right? ask Allah to grant you His love

00:09:55 --> 00:09:59

and vice versa, everything. When you talk about methodology

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

Setting the lesson for any talk for anything you're trying to achieve of dunya or

00:10:07 --> 00:10:12

the simplest way is simply to ask Allah azza wa jal for it and he is the most generous and he's the only one who can grant it.

00:10:15 --> 00:10:16

A lot of those Ellie's love.

00:10:17 --> 00:10:21

Your beloved sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to ask him for his love.

00:10:24 --> 00:10:25

used to say Allah

00:10:31 --> 00:10:33

O Allah, I asked you your love

00:10:37 --> 00:10:40

and the love of the one that loves you.

00:10:42 --> 00:10:55

So I also seek that the people who love you also love me. Then Alia of Allah azza wa jal, those closest to Allah subhanaw taala they also loves me I asked you, that you make them love me.

00:10:59 --> 00:11:03

And I asked you to grant me the love of a deal

00:11:04 --> 00:11:20

or deeds, that bring me closer to your love. Look at the beauty of this, and how general and comforting it is. And this is part of the etiquette of DUA and part of the wisdom of also when you're asking Allah subhanaw taala

00:11:22 --> 00:11:24

use these general

00:11:25 --> 00:11:38

because it applies to so much as opposed to asking for simple things, okay, or, or very specific. The generosity and mercy of Allah is so wide and vast and expansive. Brothers and sisters so ask him of

00:11:40 --> 00:11:43

general things when you ask Allah, Allah asked you of all

00:11:45 --> 00:11:52

to us included everything, everything good for you, the love of Allah, fear of Allah, piety, humility,

00:11:53 --> 00:12:01

humble hearts, love of the Quran is included in these two words. All good. I asked her all good, oh Allah.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:05

And Allah says no, and not only that,

00:12:06 --> 00:12:08

you know, all good.

00:12:10 --> 00:12:17

In your own mentality, all good to you is a certain number of things.

00:12:18 --> 00:12:23

But there's so much good that you and I don't know about a newer thing.

00:12:24 --> 00:12:25

And I don't know I asked her

00:12:27 --> 00:12:39

and I seek refuge in You from home, people. So ask Allah subhanaw taala for his love, and Prophet Muhammad so seldom used to say in the other, it's along to the end of it, he used to say that and nobody

00:12:40 --> 00:12:41

was sure.

00:12:43 --> 00:12:52

Lower left it's nothing more when I asked you the pleasure of looking at your beautiful countenance meaning in an appeal in paradise insha Allah

00:12:54 --> 00:12:54

were shown

00:12:55 --> 00:13:38

and looking forward and missing to see and meet you. Okay, not of course, in a time of tribulation or something like that, because many people will finally wish to meet Allah when they want to live the dunya in the time of a test or tribulation so he's saying I asked you this type of love and missing and wanting to meet you when there is no test or tribulation. In fact, the the most pure of love and missing Allah Allah Allah is in the time of prosperity isn't the time when you have everything you want of this dunya but it means nothing to you you'd rather meet Allah subhanaw taala because you miss him and because you love him

00:13:39 --> 00:13:39


00:13:43 --> 00:13:53

Allah was prices in the following area. And this has several of the methods and the funds we send the methods and the signs of Allah's love how to achieve that love

00:13:54 --> 00:13:58

many times it's also a sign that you love Allah Tada so they are

00:13:59 --> 00:14:03

some of them are interchangeable. Allah says in a very important

00:14:04 --> 00:14:07

concerning the love of Allah subhanaw taala

00:14:09 --> 00:14:12

he said in surah and Matt either

00:14:19 --> 00:14:20


00:14:26 --> 00:14:27


00:14:31 --> 00:14:31


00:14:34 --> 00:14:35

meaning that

00:14:39 --> 00:14:41

you will be sent me

00:14:47 --> 00:14:47

a cup of

00:14:49 --> 00:14:50

tea may me

00:14:56 --> 00:14:59

oh you love believe whatever have you should revert

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

From his religion in other words, whoever of you is going to commit the sin of

00:15:05 --> 00:15:10

apostasy, whoever of you will apostate, apostate sites and leave the religion.

00:15:11 --> 00:15:33

What will the conclusion be? Or the consequence Allah will bring forth in place of them are people he will love and who will love him Allah. Allah doesn't make you a meal those people apostatize from the religion Allah azza wa jal is not in need of them. Allah will bring in their place,

00:15:35 --> 00:15:36

people that he loves

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

and they love him.

00:15:41 --> 00:15:43

humble towards the believers,

00:15:44 --> 00:15:49

powerful against the disbelievers. They strive in the Cause of Allah

00:15:51 --> 00:16:03

in jihad, and do not fear the blame of the blamers or the critics, that is in the favor of Allah, He bestows upon whom He wills and Allah is all encompassing and knowing.

00:16:05 --> 00:16:05


00:16:06 --> 00:16:13

we were to go after the love of Allah subhanaw taala, he has given us four very important science

00:16:14 --> 00:16:34

and methods also, because it's a sign if you don't have it already, but inshallah it's something that we can try to achieve in the future. Who are they that love you and you love in return? Oh, Allah tell us here it is. In the first you're shaking your head. Number one, as in Latin, meaning

00:16:36 --> 00:16:37

that's not easy.

00:16:39 --> 00:16:45

humble towards the believers. Humble is an understatement, as

00:16:46 --> 00:16:57

we said, is usually mentioned as weakness, almost to the point of disgrace, right, your resume and your shirt where you've been losing your shirt, say more.

00:16:58 --> 00:17:08

When he is exalting himself saying that he honors who he wills and he disgraces whom He wills. This same word of is used

00:17:09 --> 00:17:19

in conjunction with the relationships between the believers if we are truly to love Allah and Allah to love us and we are to be so weak

00:17:20 --> 00:17:29

when it comes to our relationship with the believers, so we easygoing home, it's almost as if they're gonna step over you

00:17:31 --> 00:17:38

that you are so humble towards the believers as they left in Ireland, meaning once they know is a believer or she's a believer.

00:17:39 --> 00:17:45

They become like a carpet you're gonna walk over, I'm not saying for all practical purposes,

00:17:46 --> 00:18:00

that you should allow people to walk over you, but out of your love for the believers and your love of Allah subhanaw taala you are so humble with the believers You're so soft with the believers not the way we do it. Now.

00:18:01 --> 00:18:19

There this believer and I'm trying to find and so software, but once the believer comes along, I become harsh. I start screaming, I started getting angry and irritated no brothers and sisters, it shouldn't be the opposite. Hello in the believers powerful against the disbelievers

00:18:21 --> 00:18:32

and the enemies of Allah subhanaw taala. As in Latin, meaning that itself takes time and takes work and takes effort and takes stepping over one's own pride

00:18:33 --> 00:18:38

in one's own arrogance, as he left in me, I listen.

00:18:40 --> 00:19:09

They're powerful against the disbelievers their hearts, against the disbelievers against the enemies of Allah subhanaw taala against those who hate Allah subhanaw taala against those who face Allah subhanaw taala and who face the messenger Muhammad in something powerful and harsh against those why because they love Allah subhanaw taala and when you love Allah azza wa jal you love the ones who love him, and you hate the ones who hate him. And you abhor the ones who abhor him

00:19:11 --> 00:19:13

powerful against the disbelievers.

00:19:14 --> 00:19:16

Of course, there is a place for

00:19:18 --> 00:19:30

and softness with a disbeliever who is not fighting you in the religion. And there is power and harshness against the disbelievers who could care less about Dawa, who do not want to listen to anything about Islam.

00:19:32 --> 00:19:52

harshness is reserved for those powerful against them. Why? Because the standard of a believer is what Allah azza wa jal loves and hates. If Allah loves it. I love it. If he hates it, I hate it. I hate it. This is the way it is. This is the standard of a believer who loves Allah and who is loved by Allah.

00:19:53 --> 00:19:58

These are two important methods and finds when we as a method

00:19:59 --> 00:20:00

when we

00:20:00 --> 00:20:01

purify our hearts,

00:20:02 --> 00:20:14

have any love towards the disbelievers or the enemies of Allah subhanaw taala this is I am putting myself on the road towards loving Allah azza wa jal and having him love me in return, and similarly with loving the believers

00:20:18 --> 00:20:24

number three uj Luna V. Sebelius Allah on all fronts.

00:20:25 --> 00:20:29

Jihad of the left of the soul, jihad with money mentioned

00:20:31 --> 00:20:37

so many times, Quran, jihad, with your soul and with your life, the highest

00:20:38 --> 00:20:45

level where you give your life to Allah subhanaw taala. And this is what some of the majority didn't say, Oh Allah,

00:20:46 --> 00:20:47

I'm giving you my life.

00:20:49 --> 00:20:50

Your love

00:20:51 --> 00:21:03

is more important to me than my own life and my own soul. I give it to you. And for the sake of for dying in your sake, a geography service, something almost

00:21:05 --> 00:21:23

to a large extent non existent in our life. But we need to bring it into our life, love of giving one soul to Allah subhanaw taala and for fighting the disbelievers and the enemies of Allah subhana wa Tada is something that we don't

00:21:25 --> 00:21:42

either we don't hear about, or we are ashamed to speak about, or it is slowly becoming canceled, one after another. And people are only talking about jihad, no. Jihad on all fronts. How do you think the companions are ahead of us by miles?

00:21:45 --> 00:22:03

They love that Allah azza wa jal would take their soul. They fought in the way of Allah subhanaw taala. They fought those who didn't accept the message of Islam, or those who fought the message of Islam. They had no problem. They fought in so many battles.

00:22:04 --> 00:22:07

Don't think that we are even worth their feet,

00:22:08 --> 00:22:10

or one hair on their body

00:22:11 --> 00:22:24

battle after another. That's why their hearts were pure with the love of Allah subhanaw taala. And they were humble towards the believers, and they were harsh against the disbelievers. They fought in the level of lust. And notice number four,

00:22:25 --> 00:22:39

not fearing the blame of the blamers they can care less if someone blamed them, or someone called them a bunch of terrorists. And this is what we hear today. As soon as you talk. Nowadays, it is a crime.

00:22:40 --> 00:22:56

In the newspaper, you will see jihad in quotation marks jihad in Iraq. In other words, what? Jihadist terrorism for all practical purposes nowadays, jihad is equal to terrorism, citing the way from Allah is terrorism.

00:22:58 --> 00:23:01

What people tell you what do you have, there's no such thing as we have today.

00:23:03 --> 00:23:11

What did the Companions do to bring us this religion so pure? No, that was in their time and now, now there's no hope cancel this.

00:23:13 --> 00:23:30

Nobles and sisters, jihad is there until the Day of Judgment, fighting for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala judgment on all fronts, on all levels will remain until the day of judgment. And those who love Allah azza wa jal could care less what the blamer say.

00:23:32 --> 00:23:56

Call it terrorism, call it whatever you want, as long as it is truly jihad for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala according to the sunnah of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we could care less, let the enemies of Allah all over the globe. Call it terrorism, call it whatever they want, call it extremism. Call it whatever you want. Name as you please.

00:23:57 --> 00:24:00

I will fight for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala

00:24:01 --> 00:24:05

because I love Allah subhanaw taala and I want him to love me in return.

00:24:07 --> 00:24:14

While I have food I don't matter that they do not care or fear, the blame of the critics or

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

the blame.

00:24:16 --> 00:24:18

These are very important

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

methods for achieving the love of Allah subhanaw taala and his love in return.

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


00:24:30 --> 00:24:37

very much related to this. Number nine, according to my numbering you have number nine or

00:24:38 --> 00:24:39

you lost track

00:24:40 --> 00:24:44

number nine loving what Allah loves and hating what Allah

00:24:45 --> 00:24:47

Allah Allah. Allah Allah will

00:24:49 --> 00:24:51

do very difficult to achieve.

00:24:52 --> 00:24:57

An appoint I can tell you, most of us are way off

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


00:25:01 --> 00:25:07

loving what Allah loves and hating what Allah hates. My dear brothers and sisters, what is

00:25:08 --> 00:25:09

on target

00:25:12 --> 00:25:16

of our religion by the enemies of Allah is this point.

00:25:18 --> 00:25:24

The rest they could care less about. Worship Allah and 100

00:25:25 --> 00:25:28

mentioned Allah until you're blue in the face.

00:25:29 --> 00:25:47

Make dua for 10 hours on end. They could care less. Sit in the masjid for 24 hours, no one will speak to you. But beware of this point. Loving what Allah loves and hating what Allah hates when it comes to Allah, Allah will. This is what they are targeting.

00:25:49 --> 00:25:51

This is what the enemies of Allah wants to cancel

00:25:52 --> 00:26:12

political alliances, whereas your political alliance is is when America against America. Is it when written or written? Is it when Europe or against Europe? Is this western or against China or whoever it may be? Is your alliance with the disbelievers or with the believers? This is what is on target

00:26:13 --> 00:26:15

our religion

00:26:17 --> 00:26:19

Okay, a few things here and there.

00:26:20 --> 00:26:23

They're also against and they are targeting but ultimately

00:26:24 --> 00:27:11

this issue, loving what Allah loves and hating what Allah hates, that feel want to love Alonso isn't anyone's Allah subhanaw taala to love you in return, then we have to really do a lot of work on this issue. My Alliance should be with the believers, my alliance would should be with the ummah of Islam. My Alliance should be with those who are fighting for the cause of Allah subhana wa Tada. You say, Well, at the same time, there are things that are being done in the name of jihad, which are not correct. Agreed. Absolutely. There are things that are being done in the name of jihad, which is not jihad, which is against our religion, and it is clear from the religion of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:27:11 --> 00:27:11


00:27:13 --> 00:27:39

at the same time, don't go on the other extreme and cancel everything called Jihad and say there's no such thing as jihad. But there's no such thing as making my alliance with the believers and being harsh against the disbelievers. No, love what Allah says Allah loves people. If they love Allah, you should love them. Don't look at it as a personal issue. If they love Allah subhanaw taala if they are a believer,

00:27:40 --> 00:27:47

maybe they love Allah. Maybe they've made some mistakes, maybe you need to give them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe you need to go and advise them.

00:27:48 --> 00:27:52

But they love Allah subhanaw taala you should love them and you should look good for them.

00:27:54 --> 00:27:56

At the same time, hey.

00:27:58 --> 00:28:06

If they are a clear enemy of Allah azza wa jal, how can you look at them? How can you even look at their face? How can you shake their hands?

00:28:08 --> 00:28:09

How can you be around them?

00:28:11 --> 00:28:23

It is clear that they are an enemy of Allah subhanaw taala you must hate the ones that Allah azza wa jal hates, and the ones who hate Allah Subhan Allah Allah in return. Absolutely. And if that aid is not pure,

00:28:24 --> 00:28:28

there's a problem with achieving the love of Allah subhanaw taala

00:28:29 --> 00:28:33

did we not hear the sayings of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:28:34 --> 00:28:39

whoever gives for Allah and prevents and withhold for Allah

00:28:41 --> 00:28:48

and love for Allah and hates for Allah. Whoever does these four things, then their faith is complete.

00:28:50 --> 00:29:00

That means if we don't achieve this, our faith is not complete. And most of our faces not complete, because you find that there is in our heart hatred towards the believers.

00:29:02 --> 00:29:31

And maybe some love for the believers for the disbelievers. And for those who are enemies of Allah subhanaw taala. Be aware of this point. And this requires a lot we cannot say that I'm just barely scratching the surface. Now, last part, Allah gave us an opportunity in the future, to maybe do something specific to this issue of weather, but it's very important in achieving the love of Allah subhanaw taala at the same time, this is with regards to loving and hating people.

00:29:32 --> 00:29:33

At the same time,

00:29:34 --> 00:29:40

loving the deeds that Allah azza wa jal loves and hating the sin.

00:29:41 --> 00:29:51

Very important also look at many of the things that are regarded as sinful in the Quran. Do you truly hate it? Do you truly have heart? Do you truly abhor homosexuality?

00:29:52 --> 00:30:00

That's becoming normal. In so many states, now gay marriages are permissible, and therefore it's becoming normal. And therefore if you

00:30:00 --> 00:30:03

Look deep in your heart you see you don't hate it that much anymore.

00:30:04 --> 00:30:06

That's a sexual orientation

00:30:08 --> 00:30:11

is complete misguidance this film

00:30:12 --> 00:30:14

if you don't hate it that much,

00:30:16 --> 00:30:16

there's a problem.

00:30:18 --> 00:30:36

Because Allah azza wa jal abhors it. And if Allah abhors it, you shouldn't abhor it, with every atom of your being, that we are to achieve the love of Allah subhanaw taala, to love the things you love, and to hate and abhor such sins, such that if you were to see a sin being committed,

00:30:38 --> 00:30:53

and you find for some reason you are lured by it, know very well there's a problem in hating what Allah has. Because if you truly abhor it, and you abhor that sin, you cannot even look at the person committing that sin.

00:30:55 --> 00:30:57

You may do Dawa later on,

00:30:58 --> 00:30:59

but you uphold the sin

00:31:01 --> 00:31:14

and you cannot look at them as the time that committing that sin. This is part of loving Allah, Allah, loving what he loves and hating what he hates of people of sins and of other similar examples.

00:31:15 --> 00:31:28

Okay, another important method for achieving the love of Allah subhanaw taala brothers and sisters, and I'm sorry to say I don't think I'm gonna finish but I'll try another method for achieving the love of Allah subhanaw taala

00:31:30 --> 00:31:31

on the authority of sell

00:31:33 --> 00:31:46

a Saturday you said that a man came to the Prophet, Allah and he said to me on Messenger of Allah guides me to something that I may do that for which Allah will love me and people will love me.

00:31:47 --> 00:31:48

The public

00:31:50 --> 00:31:56

is Hudson dunya be Azhar has in this dunya become an ascetic

00:31:58 --> 00:31:58


00:32:00 --> 00:32:09

Pick out the love of dunya from your heart and live in this dunya like a zen like an ascetic, like someone who has nothing to do with the dunya

00:32:11 --> 00:32:12

then Allah will love you.

00:32:14 --> 00:32:17

They want Allah to love you. They come as either his dunya

00:32:18 --> 00:32:23

meaning take the love of the dunya out of your heart and put it in your hands.

00:32:24 --> 00:32:33

Make millions become a multi billionaire, we need the My Allah sake we need that money for the sake of Allah azza wa jal become a multi billionaire.

00:32:35 --> 00:32:52

But have that money in your hands, not in your heart, such that when something happens, they require your millions, they are in your hands. Take them, it is for the sake of Allah, it is not here. This is the true definition of

00:32:54 --> 00:33:10

becoming an ascetic meaning, taking the love of dunya out of your heart, not wanting anything of the dunya you're collecting that money not because you love it, or because we love dunya. But because that money is strength and power, and you want to transfer that power to the amount of Islam.

00:33:12 --> 00:33:13

This is

00:33:15 --> 00:33:21

not caring about the dunya and not living for the dunya then Allah azza wa jal would love you how have you achieved the love of people?

00:33:24 --> 00:33:29

For all practical purposes, stay away from things they love and their belongings.

00:33:31 --> 00:33:32

I don't want your money, brother.

00:33:33 --> 00:34:07

I don't want your position in the company. I'm your colleague, and not looking for your position. That's why you will find enmity many times between people in the same department, right? Because he wants my position, and she wants her position. And he wants to take my authority and so on. Right? But when you don't want that, when he's a person from another department, there's no chance he's gonna take your position. And you have a very amicable relationship, right? Similarly here, I don't want anything that you have, then you will love me. But once I start meeting you,

00:34:08 --> 00:34:11

he wants something from me. He wants my money.

00:34:12 --> 00:34:13

He wants what I have.

00:34:15 --> 00:34:18

Then we start becoming enemies Subhanallah

00:34:19 --> 00:34:31

this is the way that we human beings. It's the opposite of Allah. The more you go to him, the more you will ask him of his boundaries and what he owes, the more he loves you Glory be to Allah.

00:34:32 --> 00:34:35

This is the difference between the creator and the creation.

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


00:34:42 --> 00:34:50

concerning the rest of the Hadith Mirza is concerning things that people possess and they will love you.

00:34:51 --> 00:34:58

When you show them that you don't want what they have. You could care less about what they do not possess. They will love you at that point.

00:34:59 --> 00:34:59


00:35:00 --> 00:35:00


00:35:01 --> 00:35:02

When you love something,

00:35:03 --> 00:35:21

you will talk about it Allah. Right? When you love something you've always mentioned it will always be something that is part of your daily conversations in your daily discussions. Right? When you love it, you'll always mention it. Like I was saying yesterday,

00:35:22 --> 00:35:39

right? You'll always be mentioning it. You'll find in many of the books that are talking about this subject. One of the important methods for achieving the love of Allah mention olam and much, always mentioning Allah, doing Vicus.

00:35:43 --> 00:35:44

Guru Allah

00:35:47 --> 00:35:58

will you have believed mentioned Allah much, he didn't put any limit on it as much as you can mention him all was mentioned between you and Allah

00:35:59 --> 00:36:00

as vicar

00:36:01 --> 00:36:13

and also with people. If you love Allah takana you will be mentioning him a lot to people, you will be mentioning his blessings, right? I was mentioned last month 102 people.

00:36:14 --> 00:36:46

Allah subhanaw taala granted me this, Allah azza wa jal has given us so much. Allah subhanaw taala loves this religion is so great, or was talking about Allah subhanaw taala and what He has given, this is proof and a way to achieve the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala always mentioning His grace and His Majesty telling people about Allah subhanaw taala also great Allah so majestic, Allah deserves our worship, reminding people to worship Allah subhanaw taala and to come back to him and to repent to Him and so on. This is truly a way to achieve the love of Allah subhanahu

00:36:48 --> 00:36:48

number 12.

00:36:50 --> 00:37:00

Learning, deliberating and seeing allows perfect names and attributes manifested in the world around you.

00:37:01 --> 00:37:02

Very important.

00:37:04 --> 00:37:06

In everything you see in the dunya,

00:37:07 --> 00:37:15

use, see some manifestation of one of the names of Allah subhanaw taala, or his attributes.

00:37:16 --> 00:37:44

You see someone having so much money you think to yourself, look at what the most generous Allah has given him. Right? And that's why, especially concerning the names and attributes of Allah, Allah, concerning things like his mercy, his generosity, Allah subhanaw taala when you think about the fact that Allah is the store, right, is the store of all mercy. Then when you think about the fact that Allah azza wa jal is the provider is,

00:37:45 --> 00:37:47

he is the benevolence he's,

00:37:48 --> 00:38:20

you think about all of this and deliberate over it. And you see it in everything in the world around you. And you attributed back to Allah subhanaw taala. Whenever you see mercy, you say, Subhan Allah, this is part of the mercy that Allah azza wa jal has put in this world. This is part of the mercy that Allah azza wa jal has placed in the hearts of his creatures towards each other. Right? Even when you see an animal with another animal, this is part of the mercy that Allah has placed in this dunya right. When you see in the fact

00:38:21 --> 00:38:44

that a person has come back to Allah subhanaw taala and he's repented to Allah do you think Subhan Allah, Allah, the Most Forgiving has forgiven him and has guided him through repenting to come back to him, and you always trace it back to one of the attributes or the names of Allah subhanaw taala in everything that you see around you, you see, one of the names or the attributes of Allah azza wa jal

00:38:46 --> 00:38:59

because everything belongs to him, and he is in charge and He decrees what He wills. This is a way to achieve the love of Allah subhanaw taala because you're always attributing it back to Allah, and especially

00:39:01 --> 00:39:08

the name of Allah azza wa jal, and we're do, we're talking about achieving love. And one of the names of Allah azza wa jal is

00:39:10 --> 00:39:11

the loving one.

00:39:13 --> 00:39:15

Allah is the loving one is the one who loves.

00:39:17 --> 00:39:25

He loves you, my dear brothers and sisters, he only wants good for you. Allah says only one for all of humanity.

00:39:27 --> 00:39:37

Yes, absolutely. He only wants good for them. They are the ones who have either followed his way or declared war against him and his messengers

00:39:39 --> 00:39:52

are the ones he loves nothing more than good for all of his creatures and especially the believing ones, especially the true believers. If you and I are of those Insha Allah, Allah, Allah Allah loves us.

00:39:53 --> 00:39:59

What more do you want to achieve the level of Allah, Allah, other than thinking to yourselves to turn Allah maybe I am

00:40:00 --> 00:40:04

are the ones that Allah azza wa jal loves, maybe I am of the Beloved of Allah Subhana Allah.

00:40:06 --> 00:40:07

He is

00:40:09 --> 00:40:10

the most loving one.

00:40:11 --> 00:40:25

When you think about the extreme types of love that you experience in this dunya for a wife or a husband, for family for children, and if you think to yourself Subhanallah I cannot love my daughter any more than I love them now.

00:40:26 --> 00:40:38

Think to yourself, Allah loves you more than how much you love your daughter or your son or your husband or your wife. Allah loves you more than that, doesn't that bring you closer to Allah subhana

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

makes you think,

00:40:42 --> 00:40:54

much harder to come closer to him. He loves that you'll be on the straight path, he loves that you be guided, he loves that you have all worked in this dunya he wants to give you all and pleasures in

00:40:56 --> 00:41:04

loving Allah subhanaw taala my brothers and sisters, he's the only one to be loved for himself and not for what he gets.

00:41:06 --> 00:41:07

This is now higher level.

00:41:09 --> 00:41:13

When you think about the fact that he's the store and he's the provider and so on. Of course this will increase your love and

00:41:15 --> 00:41:25

when you think to yourself, when you are able to achieve love Allah azza wa jal only by thinking about his greatness, this is another level.

00:41:26 --> 00:41:33

Usually, we are used to loving each other for the good that you do for me. If you're no good for me, I love you. If you don't do anything good for me.

00:41:34 --> 00:41:51

I probably won't. Right? But Allah azza wa jal is to be loved solely for His Majesty, for his greatness, for the fact that he is the one and only he is he is the self sufficient is someone. Right? He is.

00:41:52 --> 00:41:53

He is the truth.

00:41:55 --> 00:41:56

He is the perfection.

00:41:57 --> 00:42:00

Right? He is a Salam.

00:42:01 --> 00:42:16

These amazing Names of Allah subhanaw taala. When you think about the majesty of the Grace of Allah, that is the reason to love Him, and to increase your love of him just because he is the judge.

00:42:18 --> 00:42:30

And he is the one who will do infinite justice in this dunya. Allah subhanaw taala is the most just with all of his features, that itself should be a reason to love Him for

00:42:31 --> 00:42:34

His Majesty and His greatness. Subhanahu wa.

00:42:37 --> 00:42:48

Think about the following fact. And these are the end of the methods but we'll talk about a few other things, when we want to achieve the loss of the loss. When Allah azza wa jal says, Why don't we

00:42:52 --> 00:42:53

tell Okada?

00:42:58 --> 00:43:07

If Allah Xeljanz were to hold his creatures accountable, as they deserved to be accountable in the dunya.

00:43:09 --> 00:43:10

For what they have earned,

00:43:12 --> 00:43:17

he would not leave on this globe, a single creature, Allah.

00:43:18 --> 00:43:21

Have you pondered over this idea, brothers and sisters,

00:43:22 --> 00:43:33

it means if a loved one is going to treat us the way we shouldn't be treated, and hold us accountable for what our hands are earned in this dunya.

00:43:38 --> 00:43:51

If not leave a single creature, human being animals, nothing. All will be removed, all perish. It's only by the mercy of Allah that this life is going on.

00:43:53 --> 00:44:15

It's by the mercy of Allah and the fact that he's not holding us accountable as we deserve to be held accountable. Do you love Allah subhanaw taala more now, when you think about this fact, how merciful Allah's version is how forgiving he is that he has kept us when you think about the fact that Allah subhanaw taala has opened the door of mercy to all

00:44:16 --> 00:44:25

even to the ones who have drowned themselves in since my brothers and sisters, people who have lived their whole life like not

00:44:27 --> 00:44:33

on the Day of Judgment will be held accountable and he knows he is not lust a single sin

00:44:36 --> 00:44:47

we're not only talking about the major sins mentioned in the Hadith, the Prophet Muhammad Salah all sins, He has not left anything of horn to unlock somebody has done it or she has done it.

00:44:49 --> 00:44:55

This type of person, maybe live their whole life, not even thinking about

00:44:58 --> 00:44:59

being disobedient to him.

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

I'm invoking his wrath.

00:45:03 --> 00:45:10

And then Allah azza wa jal is opening to him the Door of Mercy Subhana Allah will ya buddy Alevtina?

00:45:29 --> 00:45:32

To them my street services is one of

00:45:37 --> 00:45:38

my favorites servants

00:45:39 --> 00:45:41

who have wronged themselves

00:45:45 --> 00:45:48

meaning there is not a single sin except that they have committed it

00:45:52 --> 00:45:56

don't be in the sphere of the Mercy of Allah Subhana Allah,

00:45:57 --> 00:46:04

Allah azza wa jal forgive us. There's been disturbed the Mercy of Allah no matter what you have done, my dear brother, my dear sister,

00:46:05 --> 00:46:07

the more you repent to Him

00:46:08 --> 00:46:33

and show your guilt about your sin, Allah azza wa jal will forgive it as if it is nothing. As long as you there is true and sincere repentance to him, never despair. Never say to yourself, Allah will never forgive me for what I have done. Don't say this. And never face or someone else may come and tell you I am. There's nothing that I haven't done. I'm a serial killer. I've killed 100 people as

00:46:36 --> 00:46:44

whatever they may have done, I insulted Allah. I saw the sin as partners with Allah subhanaw taala there's nothing I haven't done.

00:46:45 --> 00:46:53

Opened the door of mercy to them. There's nothing Allah cannot forgive satanic, the love Allah subhanaw taala more now.

00:46:54 --> 00:46:58

Do you think to yourself, how merciful and loving this Lord is

00:46:59 --> 00:47:06

always drawing himself nearer to us and calling us to repentance. And we are fighting

00:47:07 --> 00:47:13

on Allah subhanho wa Taala with our sins, daily day and night, Allah azza wa jal forgive us

00:47:15 --> 00:47:23

and accept from us, the little that we do, and may Allah subhanaw taala increase our love for Him. Allah subhanaw taala make us of those that he loves

00:47:25 --> 00:47:49

and who we love in return, and make us of those who are humble towards the believers and harsh against the disbelievers who strive in the way of Allah subhanaw taala in all its ways shapes and forms. Allah subhanaw taala except from you and me, my dear brothers and sisters, again I'm sorry to say I haven't finished so maybe we'll finish it in a future time Insha Allah, Allah subhanaw taala from all of us

00:47:53 --> 00:47:54

Mr. Futile going to

00:47:57 --> 00:47:57

Allah mean
