My brothers and sisters, people say I love you and they don't mean it. That is happening more and more often. Sometimes we claim to love Allah. But do we mean it? Yes, we are the creatures of Allah, we have to love our Maker. So Allah says, Well, I'm going to show you how to prove your love to me and how to earn my love. So if I say I love you, Oh Allah, I love Allah. I love my maker.
How should I show that? I mean, I wouldn't ever like someone to tell me I love you, and then do everything against what I want, or what would make me happy. Imagine someone tells you I really love you, but they're hurting you all the time. They're going against what would make you happy, they doing things that would make you sad, upset or angry?
