How to strengthen our Amen. How can we increase our faith? The question that we often hear the message just allow it was provided us with the guidance. Stay tuned.

00:00:42--> 00:01:24

All praise is due to Allah, we praise Him, we seek his aid and we ask for his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and the evils of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, non chemist guide, and whomsoever leaves to go astray, none can guide and I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped, except Allah alone, who has no partners and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant, and His Messenger Dear viewers, salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah he warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Welcome to a new episode of your show. For the sake of Allah, I am your host matassa metromedia. Today we have with us two brothers Brother Mohammed, and brother Abdul

00:01:24--> 00:01:26

Rahman. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:01:28--> 00:02:12

We started our conversation over the high position of a man or the Brotherhood and Islam for the believers in their lives. And in all aspects of their lives, they need this kind of brotherhood, and it is one of their duties one of their main obligations to maintain this brotherhood and enhance it and seek the means that will improve it inshallah. So, in order to get to know the high position of brotherhood in Islam, we would like to mention some of the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam of high Brotherhood is one of the foundations of this religion. And it's one of the main things in the life of the Muslim one of the pillars of the life of the Muslim in this world. Because

00:02:12--> 00:02:54

the brothers help us increase our Eman. They help us remain the straight path. They help us even with worldly matters when you need your brother, you will find him with you. Now this one, Allah has elevated this high position, or this the status or an A brotherhood and gave it a very high position in the religion of Islam. For example, a last panel to Allah will grant his love to the people who love one another, for the sake of Allah. So those who have love one another only for the sake of Allah not for anything else, not for business, not for any word, the attainment only for the sake of Allah because of that, they love one another. Then there will be quantit the love of Allah subhanaw

00:02:54--> 00:03:03

taala Have you come across any Hadith that would mean indicate that fact that Allah grantees love to those who love one another for the sake or anything?

00:03:05--> 00:03:11

Well, first, I'd like to tell the viewers about their

00:03:13--> 00:03:16

urges to follow the prophets Eliza.

00:03:19--> 00:03:21

Our settings book, a table only.

00:03:22--> 00:03:31

So following the profits or loss lm would be from would gain us the love of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah to Rasul

00:03:32--> 00:03:38

Allah, and the prophet in the meantime, told us about the Brotherhood and how it's important.

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

There's a Hudis I remember that

00:03:42--> 00:03:54

episode of Ray said that the Navy SEAL answered him said, led to Sahib elimina Katana kenotic Yeah, don't be a brother to accompany.

00:03:57--> 00:04:07

Only I believe only a company a believer and don't eat food. Or don't make anyone eat your food. Unless his wife's

00:04:08--> 00:04:14

said advice from the prophets Allah says the believers do not Can you say that again?

00:04:16--> 00:04:18

Illumina do not accompany

00:04:19--> 00:04:51

except I believe that's it. So when you take his friends don't take somebody else. Take a believer this the criteria that you look for in the person if he's a believer, okay, I can take him as a brother as a close friend. If not, then no, you can't take him if he's not a true believer. You can't take him as a close friend. Yeah, carry on with the Hadith please. Also it's like the sopranos Allah would search for the would have been of the brothers who love each other in the sake of Allah subhanaw taala

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

Say, Amen. Una mujer allele. Yo mo balloon balloon Leo Milena villa in lovingly

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

So Allah subhanaw taala will look for the people who love each other in the sake of Allah in the world, and he will shade them with a shade when there is no shade, but Polish shade.

00:05:13--> 00:05:19

So, great privilege from the last panel. So we can see that last panel to Allah

00:05:21--> 00:06:03

stressed the importance of loving one another for the sake of Allah. loving one another for the sake of Allah is one of the foundations of Islam, one of the foundations of Al Islam, you know that the prophets Allah was the thing that made him close to the companions, what made the companions close to one another? What made them love one another? Because you know, the people of the mohajir own from Mecca and the lesson from Medina Well, they had no connection, no connection, the only thing that combined the model was that it was a lie. It was the religion Islam Subhan Allah and we saw brotherhood among them unprecedented type of brotherhood we have never seen before. That, although

00:06:03--> 00:06:14

they will they are not related. And they have not all from the same tribe. They're not from the same race, different colors. But Islam came the truth came in, related they're all

00:06:15--> 00:06:21

different ages, like a walker, the lawn is like, older than the prophets a lot wiser. So now.

00:06:23--> 00:06:24

It has no limits.

00:06:26--> 00:06:27

No color, no age.

00:06:28--> 00:06:36

You know that? Allah will because Allah wants us to love one another for the sake of him only for only only for his sake.

00:06:37--> 00:06:58

He said or he granted his love only for those who love one another for the sake of Allah, those who have achieved the man that when they love a person, they only love him on account of a man. They have achieved this high level email, do not have any text and information about the love of Allah subhanaw taala it will be for those who love one another for the sake of Allah.

00:06:59--> 00:07:03

Muhammad you have something in Quran, Olson will

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

remember the Heidi's four

00:07:10--> 00:07:14

wives and each other. It was a bit nice story, inshallah.

00:07:16--> 00:07:25

There was a guy who went to the masjid. And he saw people surrounding a guy, a pious guy look so

00:07:26--> 00:07:58

smiling and people accepted his advice and asked him about matters. So he asked, Who is this? So they told them, that's my new job. And so later on, he came next day, early to the masjid, he found that was in the jungle for the lawn was, was ahead of him. So he went to him after he finished the law. And he told them that he loves him in the sake of Allah in your head book of India. So as imageable wanted to make sure that he

00:08:00--> 00:08:02

really meaning this. So he said,

00:08:04--> 00:08:35

like he's like telling you mean it really. So he said, a lot. So Mazda pulled the competitor, the VA, pulled them from his job, and he hugged him. And he said, the Hadees that was reported by NaVi so I said emphasize the oma Maha Beti in would have been a fee when mutagenesis in a fee. Marina fee will motivate the Lena fee. So it's like

00:08:36--> 00:08:58

people who love each other in the sake of Allah will have the love of Allah subhanaw taala and they've done. So it means that it means in the day of judgment that Allah would say, My love is incumbent, it's written for those who love one another, for my sake and people who like gather and like attend lectures, something like that. Miguel is

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

in this in the sake of Allah, and what is every man in the sake of Allah people who visit each other in the sake of Allah and Mata, Mata

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

and Mouton. azulene

00:09:12--> 00:09:17

it means like people who take action for the sake of the Brotherhood

00:09:19--> 00:09:59

they all get blessings together. Even the lectures, Islamic lectures that they attend together, they also run into the angels. Yes. So you we can you see it's an easy way to attain the love Allah subhana wa tada and you know when a lot of see what it means, I mean, if you if you get to know that someone that you love and your concern for and For example, He loves you, how would you feel? That's a great feeling. This person loves me somebody has true love for me. Even if he's a human being Oh, she's a human being. You'd be really impressed with them course. Yeah, yeah. Some people really sometimes for example, when they realize how much for example, the wives my wife loves me.

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

This is a beautiful love. It's a beautiful feeling to have. When you feel that someone else loves you sincerely. It's a beautiful feeling. So, what do you think when it comes from our last panel to Allah, Allah, your Creator, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, He loves you. This is a beautiful feeling. And when this what we want is what we are after. Yes, get Allah, Allah to love us. So we do more righteousness. So how can we attain that by loving one another for the sake of Allah sent easy means that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has provided us with and it is one of the main objectives of the Muslim and you can imagine if a lot of you are going to enter Paradise, a lot

00:10:41--> 00:11:05

of you, he will be with you, he will protect you from any hardship, from any difficulty. Allah will be with you. This is from the beautiful things that we will get in sha Allah, if we achieve real feel very strong. That's it. Personally, when I feel that Allah loves me, I feel very strong because he's the creator of everything. So it's a wonderful feeling. So how can we get that?

00:11:08--> 00:11:13

So easy. You have a believer, just like sitting right beside you.

00:11:14--> 00:11:18

In sha Allah Subhan Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will love you

00:11:20--> 00:11:40

that easier. It's not even a price to pay, but you are getting something good. I mean, you are taking out the favor of Allah subhanaw taala with brotherhood having a good brother. And so by means of that you're attaining the love of Allah subhanaw taala so you're not paying, you're not paying any price. Yeah, so it's just totally free, getting that free.

00:11:41--> 00:11:45

And you are the one who's benefiting from it, in all cases.

00:11:46--> 00:12:20

Another thing that the prophets Allah Selim promised to us all fetch with regards to loving for a lot about a man. He said, anyone who was pleased to taste the sweetness of a man, the sweetness of a man, then lets him love his brother and only loved him for the sake of Allah. So if you want to taste that beautiful Amanda, the sweetness well imagine, if you love a brother, you love him for the sake of Allah, have you felt that man when you had a brother that you loved for the sake of Allah, and the only basis for that love was only to love him for the sake of Allah

00:12:22--> 00:12:53

actually felt that we honestly because they were the relationship was based on a law and on the truths and on the way a way of living life, which is the Islamic way. And it wasn't it wasn't based on interests and that's really rare nowadays. Because most people I know will kind of fork as interests I see them in business actually. Versus where to have burgers and real burgers that you share

00:12:54--> 00:13:17

true moments and true relationships who Allah would Yeah, we want to elaborate more than that inshallah. sweetness really man what we mean by that and listen to some experiences from people who know exactly what that experience means. But we will stop for a few minutes. We'll come back after that and Salah I say to our viewers, stay with us for coming back shortly. Insha Allah

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

lovers now, leaving children behind you holding you're holding

00:13:31--> 00:13:36

fathers now leaving families behind

00:13:37--> 00:13:39

you holding

00:13:51--> 00:14:06

salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Welcome back. So what is the sweetness of a man? What do we mean when we say when we say the sweetness of a man, can you give us something on that? Hum, that sweetness of the man is like, but

00:14:07--> 00:14:10

it's like, touching your heart, making your heart feel warm.

00:14:12--> 00:14:38

Simple as that. That's the kind of feeling. I guess a lot of viewers have experienced something like that. When they like, share the love of, I won't say a brother, but a person that they love. Yeah, maybe a son, father or mother, sister, anything but the feeling is like touches the heart. So can you say on that, like sweetness of any man.

00:14:39--> 00:14:42

I see also in this way that

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

we all say no pain, no gain. So the sacrifice that we give gets us this game gets us the love. Like for example, when my mom was eating together, and she she wants she likes something that I like, but there's only one piece

00:15:01--> 00:15:46

And I give to her even though I wanted a desire that when she takes it and and when she tells me you want it I tell her no of course so that she doesn't feel because of course I'm her son to be like no okay to something when she takes it and I did the sacrifice, the sacrifice that there is nothing beside the pleasure I get inside of me. So this shows how nice is he man and what what you gain from him man the taste of the tastes of a man and the taste of it is like honey sweet. Yeah, Marshall. You know if sweetness will a man is the thing that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sacrificed their lives for. We know about the story when a man came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:15:46--> 00:16:25

and he said to him, or messenger of Allah, why didn't you call upon Allah to help us when they were oppressed? Netcat before he dropped, what did you call a lot to give us victory? What do you do supplicate to Allah subhana wa tada because they were really suffering. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to him, the people who came before you, they used to be cut into two pieces with a soul and they did not refuse or give up their religion, despite the pain is the sweetest man that kept them upon him and made them in judo that pain for the sake of an Amen that sweetness you see the sweetness sweetness will Eman And even when one of the companions was really tortured severely Habib

00:16:25--> 00:17:07

una de and the, the the kuffaar or the disbelievers of Christ, they really tortured him, and they killed him. in a strange way. They cut him into pieces piece after piece, piece after piece cutting from his body. And he was suffering all that pain. And he did not abandon and Islam. Why? Because of the sweetness that is in his heart. So this pain is nothing compared to the sweetness is that the sweetest Valley man, this is one of the early people led generations of Islam. He said that if the kings and the wealthy people come to know about the sweetness of a man that we have, they would have fought us over it with their swords and with all the weapons they have so powerful. So this is the

00:17:07--> 00:17:15

sweetest volume and when you have an anyone who hasn't tasted the sweetness will imagine he doesn't know what this life is. It doesn't know what happiness is.

00:17:16--> 00:17:59

Because real happiness is with the sweetness of Eman. How can you achieve that? How can you really feel it, if you love your brother, you love them only for the sake of Allah. You see how great the reward the like is the ones will open. Because this love is one of the foundations of the Muslim society. It's one of the foundations and we can have a strong society, we can have people who would look after one another care for one another is how the world should be it is what Allah wants us to me upon. A lot of people nowadays, the think and they believe a lot of leaders, they believed that they could acquire people or get people was fear, making them theater, which completely long has the

00:17:59--> 00:18:11

has to be love. Like I even recall, I watched a documentary one day about this big mafia leader. His name is Bugsy Siegel, he was one of the first mafias in the States.

00:18:12--> 00:18:59

He was a big leader. And when he died, only four people were there. So even though he had a lot of full peeps, a lot of followers working for him, but when he died, because they just they were just with him for the fear. They didn't care. So this is the beauty of Islam. There's love and when butter, for example, dies, you can find all the brothers their friend who loved Yeah, only for him not because of as well so because so the sweetest funny man can be attained by loving your brother only for the sake of Allah and we all know the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he said there are three treats anyone who has them, then he would teach the sweetest man that

00:18:59--> 00:19:37

Allah and His Messenger are more beloved to him than any thing else and anyone else, and that he loves his brother only loves him for the sake of Allah. And third ones that he hates to be to return to confer disbelief as he hates to be thrown into the hellfire. So we can attain the sweetness of Eman, this beautiful feeling and the love of Allah, by loving our brothers only for the sake of Allah not for anything else. It means you fulfill the rights of brotherhood when you love him for the sake of Allah. When when there he needs to get advice, give him advice. When he needs help, you have to help him. And when there is sacrifice, you have to sacrifice for him. This is where you're

00:19:37--> 00:20:00

going to taste the sweetness over a man. Another thing you know Mohammed and brother Abdullah man, the prophets Allah said lemon law said to us because one day a man came to him when he was sitting with his companions and he said, he asked the professor loves them. He said, metta says when is the hour when is the day of judgment? And this is a question that will not benefit us because we don't

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

have shown knowledge about it, we can't know when the day of knowledge or the Day of Judgment is going to come. So we leave this for our last panel to Allah and we don't busy ourselves with it. And this is a lesson for us. We shouldn't busy ourselves with these things. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to him, mother, Aditya, what did you prepare for it? This is the question. It's not when it is going to come. Some people ask the question, well, what did Allah make some people rich and some people pull this from the wisdom of Allah, it's not going to benefit you because you can't arrive at the correct and complete answer. So why do you busy yourself with that busy yourself with

00:20:38--> 00:20:58

something that is beneficial? So when the man asks, When is the hour the prophet SAW said and directed him to something that is beneficial? The question that he should ask woman or that what did you prepare for it? This is the question is what's important, it's not when it is going to happen. What did you prepare for it? The man said will I prepared nothing but I love Allah and His messenger.

00:21:00--> 00:21:40

See, the man had love for Allah and His messenger. So the process a lot is said to him, you are with the ones that you love. So you are with the messages for La Silla, Mashallah means we're in Paradise, paradise. So the narrator of the Hadith, and nomadic says, when I had this Hadith, I became very happy. I said to myself, and I love the Messenger of Allah, salaam, I love. I love Omar. And I haven't done as much detail as they have done, I haven't reached that level. But I hope that bar My love, or through my love for them, that Allah will put me with them or make me with them in paradise. So through loving you, brother for the sake of Allah, you will be the messenger.

00:21:42--> 00:21:51

And you will be with your brothers. So this as you said, Man, that was a very good point, that this Brotherhood is not only in this life, but it is everlasting.

00:21:54--> 00:21:54

It says

00:21:56--> 00:21:58

FLL bah, bah, bah, bah, bah.

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

That's it, only the watch, the righteous people will maintain this brotherhood and this friendship, but the rest, they will be enemies to one another, blaming one another. So it's like simple as that. You love

00:22:14--> 00:22:19

your brothers, and you will be there with them. It's a guarantee.

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

Because nobody will not lie to us.

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

It's the truth. You see the high position of brotherhood and how important it is and how beautiful and sweet it is. There is one thing I would like to mention before we conclude this episode, is I mean, our brothers are human beings, and we are human beings. And we make mistakes. Sometimes maybe I will wrong you one day, Mohammed Abdullah, man, I'll make a mistake. So we shouldn't be the or play this game, which is the blame game, try to blame. Will you want find a perfect person. So accept your brother as he is, as he is accept him? You will never get a perfect person where there's no mistake, everything is perfect in Him you will not get that that kind of person. What do you

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

think?

00:23:09--> 00:23:53

It is for a fact. Like we when you when you start, for example, as a bird did a mistake, or a small sin. And you keep on repeating why why you did Why? You got annoyed. And he made that it will affect even the Brotherhood, and he may not take advice from you. So we got to be gentle. And we got to know that we are we all sinners. Yeah. Being humans. And that's it. Do you think we should accept people as they are? Yes, of course. Actually, a couple of days ago, I was chatting with a friend of my brother, who lives now abroad because he has some work there. And he did a mistake. And he was complaining to me that other brothers, like blame him for this mistake. Yeah. So I told him like,

00:23:54--> 00:24:06

he's up. And they are the ones who are wrong. Because he knows he did a mistake. So would you add? blaming him for it? Yeah, you make him suffer more, or isn't upon him?

00:24:07--> 00:24:44

will actually create a sense of alienation? Yeah, you turn him away from you? Yes. This is what it is. Yeah. So we should accept people as they are. Because Allah created human beings deficient, they have mistakes, they fall into error. So we should accept that and acknowledge it. And when your brother makes a mistake, you give him advice, but gently, and he show you consent to him. But you don't all the time. blame him blame him. You did this, you did that. You won't find a companion after that. If this is your character, you keep blaming people for their mistakes, then you won't find a friend and you stay with him for a while. Yeah, it's not the role. Maybe he's a little bit

00:24:44--> 00:24:53

weak. So he's there beside him. Yeah. And you mean, everyone has his own mistakes. So if you blame people, then you have to expect people to blame you as well. Yeah. Would you like that?

00:24:55--> 00:25:00

Yeah, so much of the more that we talk about, Brian

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

hood The more we see the high position that Allah has given to this beautiful relationship in this life and then the next and the reward, great reward or last prepared for those who love one another for the sake of Allah, and the Islamic etiquettes, we will come to see in Sharla and more episodes, the beauty of the regulations of Islam with regards to this beautiful relationship, how to look after one another, how to help one another, how to have have pure love, not based upon any of these worldly attainments, but only sincere love, and how to be concerned for your brother, you think about him, you want things that are good for him. So this is a beautiful and a high morality that

00:25:43--> 00:26:25

the Muslims have. And it's a religion, their way of life. They have no choice about it. You can't say no, I don't want I don't want to have friends. I don't want to have brothers for the sake of Allah. Will this is not from Islam, you're Muslim, follow this code, lifestyle, beautiful lifestyle, yet you see with all morality with all mean high and exalted, I mean character that Allah is directing us to. So this is a beautiful etiquette inshallah, we will come to know more about the beauty of brotherhood and the high position Allah has granted those who love one another for the sake of Allah inshallah will benefit from these points. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to bless us

00:26:25--> 00:26:42

all in all that and we say I say to our guests, desikan love him for being with us. And I say to our viewers, is Aquila Hana for listening. And may Allah bless us all and give us mutual love. That is for his sake for the sake alone was Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
