a Salaam Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was salam, O Allah Rasool Allah, Allah, Allah, he was happy at mine. 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.

00:00:52--> 00:01:35

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? Is that love Subhanallah that's just a statement. I love you. You need to be true even if you haven't uttered that statement. So Allah says, You claim to love Allah well we want to show you follow our messenger we sent you a messenger we told you to follow the messenger follow Him and in return I would love you to Subhanallah boil it

00:01:36--> 00:01:55

down to him Muna Maha be owning your Bebo Kumar long. Why am I feeling like I'm gonna become one Allahu Allah photo Rahim. Verse number 31 of surah. Allah Imran Allah says, tell them or messenger. If you love Allah subhanho wa Taala then follow me and Allah will love you.

00:01:56--> 00:02:35

And on top of that, he will forgive your sins. For indeed he is most forgiving, Most Merciful. Allah says, If you really love Allah, follow the messenger. And if you're really trying your best to follow the messenger, Allah will love you and he is going to forgive your sins, knowing that you may not be able to be perfect because you're just a human being. But the fact that you are trying, and you continue trying, and whenever you fall, did you keep coming back on the path and you keep trying again and again. Allah says, we're going to forgive you because Allah is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful. So look at the hope that Allah has given us and look at the way he heals our hearts

00:02:35--> 00:03:18

by telling us, I'll forgive you. I'm the most forgiving, Most Merciful, don't worry, you're not perfect, you're a human, you will falter. But do you acknowledge that you have to follow the messenger? The answer is yes, I have to and I must, and I'm trying my best. There's no point in saying, I'm a Muslim. I follow Allah, I love Allah, and I'm trying my best, but then you're not really trying your best. If you're saying you're trying your best. Make sure you push yourself to do the right thing. In that way you will achieve true contentment like I've said before, you cannot achieve that healing and true hope in the mercy of Allah. Unless it comes from Allah Himself. Your

00:03:18--> 00:03:54

relationship with Allah, Allah granted to us. I want to give you an example of Zakaria alayhis salam. He was one of the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He didn't have male offspring. Verse number 38 makes mention of a supplication that he made at old age, saying, or be heavily him in that category at all. Eva, oh, Allah. Grant me blessed me with pious offspring, someone who can carry my lineage someone who can do good. So Allah says, We replied him, we granted him. We told him to remain silent for a time Subhana Allah.

00:03:56--> 00:04:12

We told him to remain quiet. Three days, three nights Subhan Allah, my brothers and sisters, why remain quiet because at an old age his wife was expecting he didn't know how to manage that embarrassment. Allah gave him the healing.

00:04:14--> 00:04:56

And there was a lot of hope, because number one is do it supplication was answered. And number two is he was saved from the embarrassment. So Allah when you do the right thing, he will save you from embarrassment. Yes. And he will grant you what you're asking him for when he knows it's better for you. If he hasn't given it to you. You need to be convinced that you know what, this wasn't a good thing for me. So here is the Korea alayhis salam he asks Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala is teaching him how there is healing in silence. There is hope in silence. Sometimes people accuse you they say things about you. Sometimes you just have to be quiet. It's too big for me to clarify here.

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

If I'm going to clarify it, I'm going to create a bigger disaster.

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

Compared to what there is right now. So I'd rather just leave it in the hands of Allah, that's good enough, develop a thick skin, you'll be okay. Just worry about what Allah thinks of you how your relationship is with Allah. In other words, and don't worry about what people think of you, because people will never be satisfied, they will never be satisfied, no matter what you do, they will stab you in the back, some of your best friends will let you down at some point. It's expected, they're human too. So Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us this good news. And one of the beautiful verses of healing that comforts me so much is you know, people plan and plot against us. Sometimes people

00:05:44--> 00:06:10

actually plan out downfall. And we're not even privy to what's going on. We don't even know what's happening because they're doing it behind closed doors, there planning, plotting, trying online, offline, wherever it may be, that our marriages fail, our business fails, our health fails, perhaps we see disaster, our families break and so on, people are like that. So Allah tells us

00:06:11--> 00:06:30

something very interesting. Verse number 54, of lm Ron Womack, aroma Karen law, one law, halal marketing, they plot and plan and Allah plans and Allah is the best of the planets. So they there is a plot by them, there is a plot by Allah.

00:06:31--> 00:07:10

There is a evil plan by them there is a counter plan by Allah, and whose plan is the best, it's Allah. So Allah says, do your best and leave the rest in the hands of Allah Don't think about things. Sometimes we become so negative everything around us. We try to think of why it's negative. Don't do that. This person is too good to be true. Let me find fault in this person. There must be something Ms. This can't be right. It's too good to be true. Yes. Sometimes when there is a big business deal, and the person says give me $1 give you $10 million. I mean, if that was the case, they wouldn't want you to give them $1 in the first place. Didn't you think of that? But no, we get

00:07:10--> 00:07:50

conned. But when it comes to people and the general living with people don't doubt people for nothing, leave them to Allah. I'll read your data for protection, protect yourself be a little bit alert. But never mind. It's okay. You will have to interact with people sometimes they let you down. We will cross that bridge when we get to it. When if you start worrying from now and you don't have a habit of leaving things in Allah's hands, you will never, never be able to heal. There will never be hope for you because you will be depressed. You doubt every person around you. That's not fair. So, remember this, Allah is telling us while Nakuru makara la la marketing, they will plot a la

00:07:50--> 00:08:16

plots, Allah plans. In the case of a lie, it's a good plan. In their case, it was a plan a bad plan. And Allah is the best of planners, nobody can win. Now, one might say that okay, that verse was revealed regarding warfare regard, yes, it was revealed regarding warfare, and it was revealed regarding some other things, but the lesson remains that Allah will continue to protect us from what he has said that he plans as well.

00:08:17--> 00:09:00

So call out to Allah to protect you. The verses of protection, like I said, absolutely important, and Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant us ease. Now, one thing that heals us is communication. When we talk to people, we will be able to heal our hearts and ourselves, especially those who are against us at times those who have plotted our downfall. Maybe people were doubting or something of that nature, if you can talk to iron out your differences, or at least to to find the grounds upon which you are, it would heal a lot within you. And this is why if you look at the People of the Book, the Christians, the Jews and so on, and the belief structure very similar to Islam. But Allah

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

speaks about how important it is to communicate with them, to have a dialogue not in order to give up your faith, but in order to understand each other better and explain to each other what exactly we believe. So Allah says in verse number 64, of surah, Allah Eman kuliah, Helen kitabi to Allah illa collimating Salah in Benin, our binaca you know, say or messenger sallallahu sallam, to the people of the book The Jews, the Christians that Come, come, let us talk about this common word that is between us we worship our maker alone and none else. The idea here is to commence that communication, to give the message across to be able to talk to be able to give them an opportunity

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

to ask to respond. And the lesson I want to draw from this is it expands also to our relationships with others, be it your spouse, your parents, anyone it is if Allah is telling you to talk to the people of the book to solve matters, then to talk to others to solve matters even more.

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

Important Subhanallah resolve the matters. Talk to them speak Don't be afraid of talking. What are they going to say speak once, twice, three times have 10 meetings. 20 meetings try to resolve the matter. Allah will give you healing. If you cannot resolve the matter after that, at least you know, I didn't leave any stone unturned. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all a Coca Cola or sallallahu wasallam ah Baraka ala nabina, Muhammad, WA Lunas xeno, Minato Nima, who was
