You have a brother that you love for the sake of Allah, how to increase that love. If you want to know that stay tuned.
Indeed, All praise is due to Allah. We praise Him. We seek his aid and we asked for his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and the evils of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can misguide. And whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray, none can guide and I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except a law alone who has no partners. And I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant, and His Messenger Dear viewers, salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Welcome to a new episode of your show. For the sake of Allah, I'm your host matassa mohammedi. Today we have the brothers Brother Mohammed, and brother Abdullah man with us. salaam
aleikum wa rahmatullah
wa inshallah, today, we will discuss a very beautiful aspect, a very beautiful acts is simple, but it increases love among the Muslims. And maybe some people will find it strange or hard to do that, because some people are shy to do it. But China's is not recommended in that situation. Now, I would like to ask Abdur Rahman, if someone comes to you a brother, and he says to you, I love you for the sake of Allah.
What would be your impression? How would you react to that? First of all, because it doesn't happen that much nowadays, I'll get kind of surprised, but this kind of
good, good surprise. I'll be happy from inside. And it will also I'll share the same feeling that he felt
towards me, I feel that I love him for the sake of Allah also, even though he started by saying that I'll get the feeling because it's like an impact when he said that I felt the same. It's like a exchange. Okay. And it will be really, really nice, because it doesn't happen that much nowadays, and that means it's a relationship that will last for long. Because it's no interest involved in it. This is our field. Yeah. Yeah. Mohammed would say, today you are with your friends. Were the brothers that you mainly hang around with every day. And one of them comes to you and he says to you, I wanted to do something. He says, I love you for the sake of Allah. And then well, you
everyone goes back home. I mean, next day, you meet again.
Would you feel the same towards the same brother? All the brothers the same feeling? Or you'd feel something special to towards that, brother?
It's something special for that brother. Because it really touches the heart.
When you hear that from someone, it immediately touches your heart. Yeah. Especially when it's said with sincerity.
Yeah, yeah. Because some people they go around and every everyone they meet with they just have these sweet words with no taste.
Yeah, like compliments. They just sit out of you for the sake of Allah, you know, he doesn't mean it just
shows and feel it. You can feel it kind of spiritual.
This is why the Prophet alayhi wa sallam told us and authentic hadith when he said that any one of you who loves his brother, let him inform him. Go and tell him Go and tell him he will be shy. And I feel shy telling some it's not easy self pride, you know,
kind of come to this brother and say to him, I love you for the sake of Allah. You know, mainly, a peasant says that his wife I love you. But it's hard sometimes to say to your brother, and this is a brotherly love. Okay, I love you for the sake of Allah. So this is the advice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then in the same city the prophets of Salaam explained the wisdom behind it. Why do we say to our brother to our brother, I love you for the sake of Allah establishes love and makes it last longer. make it last longer long so Subhana Allah when you someone comes to me and says, Well, I love you for the sake of Allah I really like it and you will go back home
happy. Islam is about spreading this happiness because as we say, sometimes ill feelings or depression is contagious, you become affected.
When you deal with a person who's really angry or he's distressed, you will have the same feeling you will get contaminated
When someone gives you that beautiful feeling, you accept advice from him. That's it. So it's like, that's a very good point. Yes. I want you to elaborate more on this. So really, when someone says that to you are you know that he's concerned about you? Yes. And he gives you advice. How would you take that? Truly accepted? Of course, if it's the correct advice, I think,
because you feel since the beginning, the way he said it, he felt his sincerity. So you feel that he's not
someone who's who's fake or who's false is getting Yeah, he's caring about you and his true. So when he comes and give you an advice, you feel that it's the truth, he has nothing behind it.
So you accepted right away. It's something above friendship, that we used to have that for practicing. It's something above.
And opposite. For example, if someone never talks to me, never sees him, and then suddenly comes better, you better do,
most probably refuse his advice, because he says the beginning he gave me this bad impact about himself.
So he can see now that Islam is not only about as people who are not really acquainted with the list, and they think Islam is about praying about only fasting and isolating yourself from the society. And being strict, being harsh being a terrorist or something like that, we can see that Islam is totally different. It's totally different. So those who want to know really about Islam, and they would like to choose a way for of life for themselves. And well, the last thing in their heads is Islam. But they should really contemplate the beauty of Islam, Islam, the whole code of life that Islam presents, provides you with a beautiful way of life, not only in your relationship
with your Creator, last panel to Ireland, terms of acts of worship, but even your relationship with yourself, and your relationship with your, with this society around you, your fellow Muslims, your brothers, your sisters, everyone around you. Islam regulates this relationship, and Islam elevates it, and makes it an honorable one, an honorable relationship, something that you can benefit from, you can benefit the others from, as we say, in this life, and in the next, because you see the happiness want to I mean, make a person happy and put happiness in his heart. This is a beautiful act, there's something really beautiful, something good. And you can imagine the amount of happiness
that you yourself have when you approach your brother and you say to him, brother, I love you for the sake of Allah. And you see that he's happy. And you're happy. Actually, sometimes maybe you won't sleep that night, he will keep that actually, sometimes you don't even know him. You just met him like, in the same point, and just meet him in a mezcal or something like that. And he's from another area or something like that. And he just, you feel, you feel it through and he says, he shows up with a smile and says in the book of Allah, so it's like, it's like, it's the complete opposite of the evil and he could find someone, for example, a he's evil, he's bad was people maybe
he's killing people in his business. Yes, for some, some of these people, they feel guilt, they can even sleep because of the guilt. Whereas this person,
this believer who spreads love and say, Hi bucola sake, Allah, he may not sleep now because he feels guilt when he feels so good. Yeah, this is a yes. Okay. And it also because it shows the other person that you really love him. So if something happens and you get angry, and maybe you deal harshly with him, so and he gets offended, when I mean when you when he knows that you love him, and you have informed him or you had informed him before that, he will, okay, so I see, okay, this brother loves me, maybe he just made a mistake. So this will be the impression would help overcome hardships and things that threaten the relationship, the profits or loss and immediate directed us
something not only telling the brother in haddie that was narrated by remember mobarak, the well known Eman and his book has dubbed he narrated from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that he said that if one of you loves his brother, they let him go to his house. Let him go to his house and say to him, I love you for the sake of Allah. So this is really beautiful. I mean, you leave your house to go to your brother's house, only to tell him that I love you mainly go to other people's house, to or maybe to ask for money or just
Spend some nice time you say, I'm bored. I would like we'd like to have fun together just chit chat and talk about things there's chill out there's how people want people say yeah, but now you're going to your brother for the sole reason of telling him that, that you that you love him. But even I can see we can blame even the practicing brothers. I mean, we say this often that we should say to the brother, I love you for the sake of Allah. But do we really do this? What do you think happens rarely? Even even was religious? Yeah.
happens rarely, brothers forget this aspect. Yeah. What do you think the reason behind this is? Maybe a little bit? shyness? Yeah, yeah. shyness, then, okay. You know, when you when you get used to a person, and you mix with him too much.
You become so used and so close. But you can't, it's hard to express your intimate feelings.
It's hard. Some people find it difficult and hard to say to their wives out to the person finds it really hard to say to his wife, I love you.
Some people, they really feel shy, ask you. What about your parents, some people they are really trying to say to the parents, I love you.
Sometimes I think it touches the pride in some people. It's because we will break the kind of casual relationship that we have. When you say to a person I love you, when it breaks the How can I say the route the daily routine about the relationship, just so used to the person suddenly come home to you and you go, you don't really mean it. There's no direct link, no direct link between you and that person. So people find it hard to go to his father say to his father, or my father, you brought me up in the best of ways does that allow him?
I tell you, it's really hard to say that. We want to break this because we have something more important more precious to us than this casual kind of everyday life or routine that we have every day. We have love for Allah. So it's good to go too far expressed to him saying, I believe we should the good moment. We could do that. Yeah, for example, a brother just did something really nice to us. Oh, he helped us. So at that moment, I just expressed that feeling. I love you for the sake of Allah. Yeah, this is kind of hard to one, we just sitting down and nothing's going on. But I love you for the sake of Allah, let's, let's break this, break the ice and let's do it. There's no harm
in you going to your father, say and saying to your father, I appreciate everything you've done for me, and to your mother, I appreciate everything. And believe me, this will improve the relationship and will increase the love
will increase the length, increase the love, or you have to maintain it. You have 17 so it's good to go to the house of your brother. And take all the pains to I mean to go to his house and say I'm brother, I love you for the sake of Allah do it. Maybe somebody will turn up and say you're correct. You're a mad person. You're crazy.
Sam is a way of life. He will love you.
So these are beautiful. etiquettes so Pamela, I see if Muslims really apply Islam and put it into action. Will law he this life? This world would be different? It's a way of life. Yeah, actually. You see all the things that we have done if we apply them to be no place for hatred.
No, yeah, we elaborate more on shall on this one. We will have a short break. So we say to our viewers, we'll meet shortly. Stay with us.

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Welcome back.
So, we have discussed this beautiful etiquette, this beautiful thing to do is to tell you, that you love him for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala hamdullah we came to know how creases, the love the kind of mutual love and we said, it breaks the ice, and that kind of daily routine in the way that the relationship falls into. So do we really, the question is, do we really implement this in our lives? Do we do that Mohammed deja?
Lately, it's not that much really.
But in a way you can feel the love that's going both ways. But saying it is really missing
in our daily life, as a matter of fact, that
it would occur back as soon inshallah me on I mean, what do you think?
How can we how can we really overcome this?
I can say, they think that we are not really implementing it, how can we avoid this? I mean, I think that the shapes and people should try to that, no, this, this point, should try to talk about it. And remind people so that when you remind someone, he could remind someone else and this habit comes back to that, like you said, shall we break that the daily routine by saying, I love you for the sake of Allah. And it kind of takes you to a heavenly feeling away from the materialistic attitude that we have towards life. So
affecting the heart and the soul? Yes. Like you said, there's no interest. No interest at all. Yeah, we should really those who know this etiquette, they should direct the others, implemented and understood pneumatic, one of the great companions told us a beautiful story. He said, we were with the messenger sallallahu Sallam one day, and a man passed by us. So one of those companions with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they said to the messenger, I love this man. I love him for the sake of Allah. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to him, Have you told him? He said, No. Why don't you tell him Go and tell him, Go and tell him straight away? Go and tell him. So he went to that person
who followed him and he said to him, I love you for the sake of Allah ibuka filler. So the man said to him, have baccala Olivia Nila May Allah who in whom or whom you love me for may hear of you.
So you see this beautiful guy, it's a nice way. So when someone comes to you and says, I love you for the sake of Allah say to him, may Allah whom you love me, for me, he loves you.
Okay, so this is a beautiful etiquette, and imagine how the society would be if people really expressed their love to one another. When it comes to your brother, I love you for the sake of Allah strengthens the bond and brings the brothers together. And it becomes a habit. And but we don't want to fall into the trap of making it just a casual word with no meaning, with no meaning that has no significance. Now we do it with intention. It's an act of worship, because the Prophet Allah Islam directed us to that. So it's an act of worship, it should be done sincerely for Allah, some people that they have this kind of language for, they say to you, well, I'll give you my eyes you asked was
fortunately, one hour, I'll give you that in just a casual word, they don't really mean it. They don't really mean it. So now we want to say it, I love you, for the sake of Allah. That it is, it comes from the heart, it doesn't come from the tongue comes from the heart, I love you, for the sake of Allah. And we can, I mean, do the same thing with other things as well with for example, it helps us be sincere towards the brothers, as we tell the brothers about their mistakes. Yeah, why don't we tell them about the good aspects when a brother does something good? I mean, we can tell him, you can approach the brother same same exact law. today. You have done a very good thing. May Allah
reward you for that. It encourages why human beings are inclined to pick at
faults and mistakes. But when it comes to good things, they don't talk about them.
serious issue? Yeah.
So like you said, remember you said in the art of giving advice, we should even start by the good aspects that we found in the brother, then go to the the, the bad aspect that we want to talk to him about is psychology. That's it.
As we give advice, when a person does something wrong, we should always praise him not to make him become well, happy with what he has done and show off, start showing off. No, we just encourage him so that he does more righteous deeds, he becomes more inclined towards good because the brother sees that you help him and you support him when he's doing good, he will increase in that. But if he only sees from you that when he does something wrong, there's when you remember him, you should actually remember him when he does something good as well, is how the Muslim should be. So there is a balance, there is a balance, as we give advice to the brother, when he does a mistake, we should
also praise Him, not in order to make him start showing off. But just to encourage him do more righteousness, more actions, because human beings are weak, when he sees that he's doing something good, and there is no support from his brothers. He might, I mean, fall short in that we need support we human beings, and from the rights of our brothers upon us, that we support them in that we encouraged them. And we should avoid making them fall into showing off. We don't want them to fall into the air. Okay, so this is one of the beautiful etiquettes that we have to stick to. But what other things can help us implement this beautiful etiquette? What can we do to increase in that
mostly interacting with them, mostly interacting with brothers around.
But in a sort of expert Vianney, there are brothers that say that a lot.
for example, me I don't hang out with
this guy that much. But hamdulillah I've been in good company practicing brokers.
Marsha, Marsha, maybe if we remember the reward that Allah has prepared for the ones who love one another for the sake of Allah, and that when we apply this etiquette, it increases the love. So we will have more reward from Allah and more love from Allah. So maybe this will, because this thing, this etiquette increases the love. So it will increase us and reward as well. And you know, we will get a supplication from that brother, may Allah love us well, the one Allah for whom you love me mahila view as well. So this supplication female, real brother and inshallah Allah will answer this application. Now, we are saying, I mean, our program is called for the sake of Allah is where the
name comes about, venturing to tell your brother, I love you for the sake of Allah. See, it's not love for you if we break down these words, I love you. Love is a death thing today. It's really it's precious. You can't really find real love which is not based upon interest, which is not based upon any benefit, where the benefit that you can get from another one. So many people love you because of your status, because of your wealth, because of who you are. Because of
which family you come from which country you come from the way you look, because of you because you're famous people love one another because of these things today. But someone loves you just for the sake of Allah, whether you are poor, or you are rich, whether you are older, you are young, whether you are handsome, or you're ugly, whether you are I mean stronger, you are weak, loves you for the sake of Allah
Despite all these differences, and all that the other temptations He loves you for the sake of Allah you see, for the sake of Allah not for anything else and that's the truth truth took us over you just said before she is stuff that don't even last any fame come and go someone who looks good he could get injured and has his beauty gone all this goes bus when you love someone stays and it stays still in heaven also.
for the sake of Allah existence non Muslims cultures or something like that?
I myself, I haven't heard of that. Haven't heard of that. Mainly what will actually what, what joins people together and other cultures is things that are related to this world at the business work or family. Other things but the proper Yeah, it is said
and usually people lie. I know that that has that will really true.
I don't know why but most of them that were really true before being like under non Muslims, determined to be Muslims to convert because they had this honesty and this this, this love for the truth inside of them. So Allah so the sake of Allah
You know what's special about this love that it comes out follows in from your love for Allah, the love that you have for your Creator for Allah because we love our Muslim Brothers whether we know them or we don't know them. We love all of them for the sake of Allah.
Okay, I have it. Maybe there is a brother that I haven't come across I haven't seen in my life I haven't spoken to. But I love him for the sake of Allah The first time I see him why there's no interaction between minute there's no other reason it's true. But that relationship that combines us together, which is the love that we have for our Creator, it's something for special, especially for the Muslim oma something the love of Allah is something for the oma. Yeah, it is something that differentiates us from others.
Okay, let's elaborate more on the phrase for the sake of Allah. I mean, I love you for the sake of Allah. What does this word what implications does this word give you for the sake of Allah?
Me personally, for the sake of Allah, knowing that Allah, our Creator,
he, he does allow even injustice on himself.
And whatever he does, has wisdom.
So knowing that for the sake of Allah, it's for the sake of the truths. And so it's for the sake of something that that is right and nothing.
Anything else would be wrong? Yeah. Yeah. So it's really big. It gives a lot of cool annotations that are really hammered. What do you think? I think it's, like, so pure. It's so pure, it touches your soul. Yeah. That's how it's beautiful that's in love for Allah is for the sake of Allah, pure. Another thing for the sake of Allah means sacrifice. So the only relationship where you will find real sacrifice, forget about films and movies and what you see this old fiction are talking about reality. The only thing where you will find the person will sacrifice for the sake of Allah will for the sake philomene sacrifice, because we know sacrifice means we love Yeah, that's it. So sacrifice
is a form of love, where you will find sacrifice, which is love for Allah. And this is what we want. If love really reaches that depth in the heart.
That's it. So you can depend on your brothers. You can depend on your brothers in Islam, unlike other peoples, because when they need their friends, they won't find them. They won't find them. So inshallah this beautiful etiquette will be implemented in the lives of the Muslims. And it will be for the sake of Allah only only for the sake of Allah with all that purity, and all that sacrifice that we have. So inshallah we'll implement that is that Camilla Hannah, for your contributions, beautiful subject, Mashallah. And I hope our viewers will benefit from that. And you see how pure it is for the sake of Allah. And now you know where the title for our show comes from, for the sake of
Allah. So we will try to make our lives all with all their details for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. I said, the end Salat Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
