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


00:01:20 --> 00:01:22

of the well established

00:01:25 --> 00:01:26


00:01:27 --> 00:01:28

is the fact that

00:01:30 --> 00:01:32

when people are in love,

00:01:34 --> 00:01:35

when they're loved

00:01:39 --> 00:01:42

and when they have love,

00:01:43 --> 00:01:45

when they experience true

00:01:46 --> 00:01:47


00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

it actually helps

00:01:53 --> 00:01:55

with regards to the

00:01:56 --> 00:02:02

longevity of that individual's life, there's plenty of research on this.

00:02:03 --> 00:02:11

Less stress or their ability to handle a stress is greater, better heart

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


00:02:15 --> 00:02:19

better overall health.

00:02:20 --> 00:02:30

And the greatest of all is happiness. person is going to be happy content. So I saw that sometimes, you can tell just by simply looking at someone

00:02:32 --> 00:02:33

that they love.

00:02:35 --> 00:02:42

You can't I can tell right now I see some few faces that are very clearly their love.

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


00:02:46 --> 00:02:48

the ultimate love

00:02:50 --> 00:02:51

is the love of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:02:53 --> 00:02:58

To love Allah and to be loved by Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:03:00 --> 00:03:01

And it's not me saying this.

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

This is experts and researchers. Because you see very often when we think that we're in love with someone with a human being or with an object.

00:03:13 --> 00:03:19

In reality, we're really in love with ourselves. Very often I'm not saying always but very often

00:03:20 --> 00:03:22

because you usually either love

00:03:25 --> 00:03:39

what this object or this human being loves and admires about you. So it's all about it's all about you. Or you love what they love about you love them because they love you. So reciprocal.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:49

Let me repeat that again. Very often if you ask someone that likes or loves something, why do you like it? They're gonna give you

00:03:51 --> 00:04:00

what I would quote unquote, classify as a selfish reason. I love it because it does this for me. It makes me feel this way then it's about what

00:04:01 --> 00:04:02

about you?

00:04:03 --> 00:04:12

Or because oh, this person loves me because this person thinks that I'm funny. They think I'm great. They think I'm amazing. So it's still about me.

00:04:16 --> 00:04:19

So people love the weights others love them.

00:04:20 --> 00:04:27

Now because this is because they're aware of the love or the science of of what they conceive to be.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:30

Love. However,

00:04:32 --> 00:04:40

there is also a superior love to all of this parent till especially motherly love is of that kind.

00:04:41 --> 00:04:45

Feels selfless. You will love what you can do.

00:04:46 --> 00:04:51

You love the opportunity. You love what it brings out of you.

00:04:54 --> 00:04:55

You love

00:04:57 --> 00:04:59

how it makes you a better version of yourself.

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


00:05:01 --> 00:05:04

and as great as the motherly love is,

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

or any love of that kind, nothing can be compared to the love of Allah subhanaw taala and what the love of Allah Subhana Allah does for you.

00:05:16 --> 00:05:19

And the love of Allah subhanaw taala goes both ways.

00:05:21 --> 00:05:36

You love Allah, Allah loves you. If you love Allah, if you truly love Allah, that in and of itself is a sign that Allah loves you already, because there is no way that Allah will allow his love to settle in your heart.

00:05:37 --> 00:05:42

Unless you deserve the love of Allah, unless you're loved by Him subhanaw taala

00:05:43 --> 00:05:50

and this is where the Quran alludes to Allah Subhana Allah in the Quran tells us that if we turn away from his path,

00:05:51 --> 00:05:54

if we turn away from our responsibilities

00:05:56 --> 00:06:04

if we denounce Allah if we change our religion, if we don't want anything to do with Allah Subhana Allah Allah doesn't care

00:06:07 --> 00:06:11

may have taught them in command Dini he, if any one of you

00:06:12 --> 00:06:32

leaves his religion, they give up on their relationship with Allah, they detach themselves from Allah subhanaw taala for several Fiat Killa who will be calm, Allah is capable and Allah will certainly bring other people. Allah can create other people becoming a people, your Hebrew home, why were he born?

00:06:34 --> 00:06:36

He loves them, and they love him.

00:06:38 --> 00:07:17

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made dua for two individuals, not knowing which one of them is worthy and deserves guidance from Allah subhana wa taala. But both of them have the potential to be great assets for Islam, for this religion, for the community. Them coming into Islam and joining the community would give a huge boost for this religion, and for every member of that community, that early community and they were by the way nephew and uncle, very charismatic, strong leaders.

00:07:19 --> 00:07:22

One of them we know as I'm Robin Hashem

00:07:23 --> 00:07:25

aka Abuja when

00:07:27 --> 00:07:32

he was a very charismatic, powerful leader, and the other one was his nephew.

00:07:34 --> 00:07:39

A man that we later came to know as Al Farrokh, Rama Rama Hata.

00:07:40 --> 00:08:02

Parmesan son of a new one of these two would be a great addition to Islam. One of these two, but who, so he makes dua he asks Allah he says Allah Houma, and I said, Islam will be a habit, like, Oh Allah, a string thing, the cause with this religion, by the conversion of the most beloved of the tour Omar's to you.

00:08:04 --> 00:08:05

I'm Ramona Hashem.

00:08:07 --> 00:08:07

We're our model.

00:08:11 --> 00:08:12

Who did Allah subhanaw taala guide?

00:08:16 --> 00:08:19

From this, we know that Allah Subhana Allah loved Omar

00:08:21 --> 00:08:37

not necessarily for the state or model was in because he was a sworn enemy. He actually at some point, some people would look at him and say, there is no way this person will accept Islam. his donkey mate may accept Islam before he does. This is a stubborn person, he's just very fierce.

00:08:39 --> 00:08:44

But because of the potential that our model the Allahu Anhu Had Allah Subhana Allah guided him to slap

00:08:45 --> 00:08:47

on the promises and to make dua for him.

00:08:48 --> 00:08:56

So you may look at a person and you don't know maybe this person is loved by Allah subhanaw taala and one day Allah azza wa jal is going to show what this person is capable of.

00:08:59 --> 00:09:13

So how do you know what are the signs that you love Allah, that Allah Subhana Allah loves you? If you miss root rot, the Allahu Anhu says, in Allah Allah cassava, cassava,

00:09:14 --> 00:09:24

Allah azza wa jal has divided when it comes to character and mannerism. It's really an endowment. It's a risk from ALLAH SubhanA It's a gift from Allah.

00:09:26 --> 00:09:31

Some people are endowed with with beautiful dispositions and qualities.

00:09:32 --> 00:09:36

Just like some people are, you know, Allah subhanaw taala enriches

00:09:37 --> 00:09:41

financially, some people Allah Subhana Allah enriches

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


00:09:44 --> 00:09:57

and by the way, the you know, one of the worst things, obviously the worst case scenario is for someone to be impoverished, financially and ethically and morally, you know, lack nothing, they have nothing to offer the world

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

but sometimes they are in

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

In very in many cases, you find people who are financially enriched, but they are morally bankrupt.

00:10:09 --> 00:10:22

And these people are very, very destructive and dangerous because of what they are capable of doing. Because they have the wealth they have the they have the power, they have authority, they have means that they have no luck. They have no manners.

00:10:23 --> 00:10:25

It's very unfortunate that

00:10:27 --> 00:10:29

many people in positions of power

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

fall into that category.

00:10:34 --> 00:10:40

One of the worst things is someone in a position of power and authority to be morally corrupt.

00:10:41 --> 00:10:43

And then you have people who are

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


00:10:47 --> 00:10:49

they're not doing that well, but morally, they're very.

00:10:52 --> 00:10:58

And then you have people whom Allah Subhana Allah and this is very, very, very rare, whom Allah subhanaw taala enriches

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

in both ways. And these are the most beneficial to other people. They're the most amazing people the most productive, the most humble

00:11:10 --> 00:11:31

because they dedicate all of their resources for their own betterment and for the betterment of other people. And it's a sign of a love from Allah subhanaw taala and that they love Allah azza wa jal and Allah azza wa jal praises them in the Quran. While you're Tiana Allahu Akbar, he miskeen way a team and

00:11:32 --> 00:11:48

they feed other people, they take care of others, for the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala miskeen and they take care of those who are less fortunate. Were a team and they look after the orphans, what are Sierra they even take care of their prisoners.

00:11:50 --> 00:11:52

They take care of their prisoners, I see it all

00:11:54 --> 00:11:56

the offenders, the enemies,

00:11:57 --> 00:12:00

they do not deprive them from their humanity.

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

They fulfill their basic human needs because they're highly not because again, they're, they're rich financially but because they're rich morally.

00:12:14 --> 00:12:20

So one of the greatest signs of Allah subhanaw taala the prophet has sent him a message rather says,

00:12:21 --> 00:12:32

we're in Allah to Allah, Allah azza wa jal, you're a tin man, I'm an ABA woman. Now you have Allah azza wa jal gives wealth to whomever he loves. And he gives wealth to those whom he doesn't love.

00:12:34 --> 00:12:41

Getting well is not a sign of love from Allah subhanaw taala. However, when you're a little Imana, in learning,

00:12:42 --> 00:12:46

Allah will not guarantee or bestow Eman faith

00:12:48 --> 00:12:50

and whatever comes with that knowledge and

00:12:51 --> 00:13:05

piety and goodness, except to those whom he loves. And I gave an example of the lawn and I cited a verse in the Quran where Allah azza wa jal has for Sophia Tila will be combing your hair.

00:13:07 --> 00:13:32

And Allah tells us that of their qualities is that they let in Allah with their humble with the believers. They're strong and confident in the face of the disbelievers. That's from the greatness of and from, from the richness of their character and their morality. So one of the greatest signs of Allah subhanaw taala is to be able to be of the of these people or to or to be of those people.

00:13:34 --> 00:13:45

The other sign that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala loves you. It sometimes Allah subhanaw taala shows his love by protecting you, from dunya.

00:13:47 --> 00:13:51

And from its temptations, and from its

00:13:53 --> 00:13:54


00:13:56 --> 00:13:58

Does dunya can really be very limiting.

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


00:14:02 --> 00:14:15

he said Allah subhanho wa Taala in a hadith collected by Imam Muhammad, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, oh tells us that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah would sometimes

00:14:16 --> 00:14:25

protect his servant whom he loves, from dunya like you would protect your own children or your own

00:14:26 --> 00:14:30

your own family members who are ill

00:14:32 --> 00:14:38

from anything that could be a source of sickness or something that can trigger fever.

00:14:41 --> 00:14:52

Allah subhanaw taala will protect that person. Sometimes these things may be very appealing they may have they may have you know, they may be tempting.

00:14:53 --> 00:15:00

They may look very good and the person may have the appetite or they they're they're craving it but you're like son, this is

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

Not good for you.

00:15:01 --> 00:15:03

It's going to make your situation worse.

00:15:05 --> 00:15:23

So you because you love them, you deprive them from something that they, they are craving, something that they love. It's an act of love. So sometimes Allah Subhana Allah manifests his love for his servant by not giving you have something that you desire, because it's not good for you on the long run.

00:15:25 --> 00:15:43

And Allah azza wa jal says that sometimes you may like something that is potentially bad for you. And sometimes you may hate something that is potentially good for you. Well, La Jolla Alamo want to let animal if Allah subhanaw taala loves you. He's not always going to give you everything that you desire, and everything that you want, he wants

00:15:45 --> 00:15:49

but rest assured, that's a sign of love from Allah subhanaw taala

00:15:50 --> 00:15:57

of the signs of the love of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is that Allah azza wa jal refines your manners in gives you

00:15:58 --> 00:16:03

softness and makes you a tender and gentle human being.

00:16:04 --> 00:16:07

In Allah hey that Habana baking Allah Allah him are

00:16:08 --> 00:16:23

one of the sides of, of the love of Allah azza wa jal for any household is that Allah azza wa jal spreads gentleness and tenderness and kindness within that household. Anytime you see a group of people,

00:16:25 --> 00:16:37

household of believers, where the members of that of that household love each other and they care for each other, the wife loves her husband, the husband loves his wife, the kids are so gentle and kind.

00:16:38 --> 00:16:44

That's a sign that Allah subhanaw taala loves that household in Allah, either a hub the elevating

00:16:48 --> 00:16:49

they are kind to each other.

00:16:50 --> 00:17:05

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to our Isha in Allahu Akbar Rifka Phil Emery Cooley, Allah loves gentleness and tenderness and kindness in everything, all of your matters and affairs. Do it with kindness,

00:17:07 --> 00:17:13

of the signs of the love of Allah Subhana Allah sometimes is that Allah azza wa jal test, you

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

test you with some difficulties and hardships.

00:17:19 --> 00:17:24

And if you want to know this, I mean, there's plenty of evidence of it but one of the greatest

00:17:26 --> 00:17:27

and most obvious

00:17:29 --> 00:17:37

proofs for this is the fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the prophets and the messengers before him, were the most tested with hardship.

00:17:40 --> 00:17:55

So my so that they are paying sometimes would be doubled. Well, it will be multiplied. And he think, think, think, think about it. And this is why by the way, it's very important to learn their car to learn the you know the history and the life

00:17:56 --> 00:18:00

of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the prophets and messengers before him.

00:18:01 --> 00:18:03

It If Allah Subhana Allah

00:18:04 --> 00:18:09

tests you, with your child, remember that they were prophets and messengers before you were tested.

00:18:10 --> 00:18:12

Know Allah is Allah for you know, as an example,

00:18:13 --> 00:18:14


00:18:15 --> 00:18:23

or if it's a parent that you're struggling with, Ibrahim Ali Salam had an extremely abusive, hostile, aggressive parent.

00:18:26 --> 00:18:32

It's a sign of love from Allah subhanaw taala. Or if it's your spouse, remember no Aleut Allah himself

00:18:35 --> 00:18:43

or if it's a sibling, or a group of siblings, remember Yusuf Ali Salam and what his siblings did to him.

00:18:44 --> 00:18:53

So Allah subhanaw taala will test you. And if it's a sickness, or some sort of sort of illness in your body or some sort of disability, remember a yoga in Santa

00:18:55 --> 00:19:05

Fe it's the hostility and the hatred of your neighbors or people around you or people that you work with, or people that you're trying to remember Jesus is the son of Mary. And remember Yeah.

00:19:07 --> 00:19:08

And remember is a Korea

00:19:09 --> 00:19:11

and the list goes on and on and on.

00:19:12 --> 00:19:21

of people that Allah Subhana Allah love the most, Yet Allah subhanaw taala tested them with different types of hardships and

00:19:23 --> 00:19:24


00:19:29 --> 00:19:32

If Allah Subhana Allah loves you, and I will conclude with this.

00:19:33 --> 00:19:39

One of the signs of the love of Allah and by the way, there are many of them in sha Allah tonight we'll go over the rest of the mission.

00:19:41 --> 00:19:47

If Allah Subhana Allah loves you, Allah azza wa jal will inspire you

00:19:51 --> 00:19:53

and give you inclination

00:19:55 --> 00:19:57

towards serving others

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


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


00:20:01 --> 00:20:05

being in the in the service of other human beings, people

00:20:06 --> 00:20:15

being in the service of the community, in and of itself, that is one of the signs of the love of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:20:18 --> 00:20:19

If you're productive

00:20:20 --> 00:20:42

if you find yourself motivated by coming and volunteering and dedicating your time and your expertise and your effort for the betterment of your community, your fellow Muslims, making this world and this this community of yours or this environment, or this of yours, a better place, that is a sign of the love of Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:20:44 --> 00:20:53

And if any one of you wants the evidence for that is one of you might come in and ask. Oh, you're just trying to motivate us to volunteer and to

00:20:55 --> 00:21:07

where where do well, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us I have been nasty eel Allah, the Most Beloved of people to Allah and Pharaoh homeliness

00:21:09 --> 00:21:12

are those who are those people who bring the most benefit to others.

00:21:14 --> 00:21:35

It's a sign of love of Allah, others, fellow human beings and even animals. One of the signs of the love of Allah subhanaw taala, of a person that was a sinner that was despised by her community, was the fact that Allah azza wa jal made her offer a dog

00:21:37 --> 00:21:43

water an act of courtesy, so that Allah azza wa jal would use that to forgive her sins.

00:21:45 --> 00:21:57

So if Allah subhanaw taala inspires you to do something good for other people, that is a sign that that moment that Allah subhanaw taala has bestowed upon you and showered you with His love.

00:21:59 --> 00:22:14

So find that motivation and that desire to help to serve and make a difference may Allah subhanaw taala make you and I are those who listen and follow the vessel for they listen to a cola cola so for Allah Allahu Allah confessor we have to look them in the horn or for Rahim.

00:22:33 --> 00:22:55

Al Hamdulillah hamdulillah Heyoka wa salatu salam ala Abadi, Liliana Stouffer well that one of the greatest motivations for someone to be loved by Allah subhanaw taala and to do things for the love of Allah azza wa jal is so that they would earn the love of Allah azza wa jal, one of the greatest means for you to fall in love with Allah is to be in love with Allah azza wa jal.

00:22:57 --> 00:22:58

And it can be challenging.

00:22:59 --> 00:23:07

It's motivating, but it can be challenging. If you feel that you are challenged, you're motivated, you're encouraged,

00:23:08 --> 00:23:16

to better yourself, to improve yourself to become a better version of yourself. That is a sign that you're in love.

00:23:18 --> 00:23:26

When you feel like you need to be a better person, you know, it was said to one of the scholars, your son is in love with a girl.

00:23:27 --> 00:23:28

He said, Well, good for him.

00:23:30 --> 00:23:33

It's going to help refine him and make him a better person.

00:23:34 --> 00:23:47

He's going to clean up, said he's going to start cleaning up, it's going to refine his manners. It's gonna wash his language, it will start looking, taking care of his looks so good for him. Let's just make sure that it's done in Helen.

00:23:49 --> 00:23:57

So imagine if that's what the love of a human being who's flawed, gives you imagine the love of Allah subhanaw taala what it will do to you.

00:23:59 --> 00:24:09

It will make you a better version of yourself. You will become you will even start loving yourself again, because a lot of people don't love themselves enough.

00:24:10 --> 00:24:12

So it's very important
