all praise and thanks be to Almighty Allah subhana wa tada with our Creator sustainer nourish, protect and cure. We ask Allah azza wa jal to Chava his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of
my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, first and foremost, I advise myself and then all of you all who are present here, to adopt a life of taqwa. And that is to fear a loss of the hand and more data and to be conscious of allies during every single second of our lives if we wish to attain success in this world, as well as the hereafter. maleness behind them would either make us all from the people of taqwa amin,
inshallah, Dinah, today's kotoba is going to revolve around love.
Love is an emotion that we have been created with. We are born with love. This is an emotion This is a feeling that Allah Subhana Medina has created all of us, human beings with and when we try to define love, now is actually trying to come up with a definition of holistic definition that could define love. But then when you read, you see intellectuals trying their level best to define love. But it's actually
an impossible task. Because love is a history. Love is something that dominates a person's heart.
It can even drive a person crazy.
It can take away the sanity of an individual. Love makes an individual thing, that right is wrong and wrong is possible is impossible and impossible is possible.
Love does all of these things to an individual. So now is a mystery yet to be solved. But what does Islam say about love? So let's look at love in the light of Islam.
Like I said, Love has Love is something to do with the heart of an individual. So Islam says that as long as this love is within number one, the guidelines of Sharia. And as long as love is within certain conditions, it is permissible, but the main condition is that it should be within the guidelines of Sharia. And the scholars Rahim Allah, they differ over here because love is a feeling and it's not an action. It's something hidden deep within your hearts. But the minute it manifests into an action, say something haram outside the framework of marriage outside the framework of Nika, then of course that's obvious that it is around May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all.
do you think that he said a long while ago SLM had this feeling of love
and bear in mind that there are many shades of love, there are many shades, you have love a loss of
love for the profits of the Long Island you
love for your spouse's love for your children, love for your parents love towards animals, there are many shades of love, but inshallah we are going to focus a lot on love between two spouses. Do you see this in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, at times, marry brothers in Islam. We don't
Look at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from that perspective, or we don't read the life of the prophets or the Long Island us and learn from that perspective for if we do, I'm sure you and I and we would all come to a conclusion that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most romantic person to ever walk on the face of this. He was the most romantic person.
When you talk about love stories, and you know, when I was coming to the message, a friend of mine was telling me even the same time last year, February, close to the 14th of February, I spoke about the greatest of all love stories, not Romeo and Juliet, the love story between Mohammed Salah Mom, I'll send them an eyeshadow line.
Because when we talk about love stories, the first story that comes to our mind is Romeo and Juliet. But Romeo and Juliet never got married. They never put their love to the test of marriage, because if they had you never know they might have filed for a divorce.
They never put it to the test of marriage, but Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wasallam put it and he showed us that he lived a beautiful life with eyeshot of Yolanda, I shall do online, huh. She used to address
the most noble of terms. And she used to only talk good about her husband, sal Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam.
So this is the greatest of all love stories. And we need to be following the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in implementing that lump in our lives.
There is a famous incident that took place during the time of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And this shows us there are many lessons that can be derived from the incident. But the main lesson that can be derived is the tolerance of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, towards love, as long as it is within the guidelines of Sharia.
There are two slaves during the time of the Prophet for the long while that is the famous story. There were two slaves, a male and a female. The names were movie and berry era, movie and barrier to slaves who lived at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So very era, the female slave for the alarm line. She wanted to work towards her freedom. And that option was available because her master or her mistress gave her the option, that if she were to earn a particular sum, or bring about this much amount of money, that will basically earn you your freedom and you will be free, you can leave. So this lady barilla, she goes to eyeshadow, the alarm and she tells her about her problem. And eyeshadow, the alarm line helps out by giving her that sum of money. So Madeira, she goes now to her master of a mistress, and she gives the money thereby earning her freedom, freedom, independence. So now the minute a slave becomes a free person,
according to the Sharia. If that slave was married, a woman she has the option of remaining with the husband because her husband, remember is a slave movie, he was a slave. So she has the option of remaining with her husband. And Sheree are also accommodates that she can ask for a fella. She can ask her divorce because now she's free and independent. So she can ask for a divorce.
she opted for the divorce. So she asks her husband for a divorce, and she separates and now she is a free woman. She starts to enjoy her independence and her freedom. But then a few days pass by and then the Sahaba they've done by dilating the domain like given a bus or a basket of the alarm line. They notice that movie, her husband, the husband of variera is running behind barilla in the streets with tears flowing down his cheeks and pleading for Barry raw to come back was pleading for burrito to come back. Please come back. So you know who was observing all of this? Our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala he was
so he looked at movie and Berea and then he said look at how amazing that movie loves Berea so much. Why is buddy era hates movies so much? Movie loves barrier so much. Why is the barrier despise this movie so much? Eventually movie comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and asked him Yeah, rasulillah Can you please intercede on behalf of me to barilla
you know what the purpose of alarm while it was intended? He did not say I'm obese. You're doing something wrong because now
Amina has given her the divorce, right? So she's a strange woman, this is not something that you must be doing. No, he what he did was he was trying to make it halaal for movie. And this is what's important. You need to encourage love if you can make it halal. But if there is no way for you to make it Hello, then you must stay away from it. Because another question comes about, do we?
Do we bring in love through choice or by false?
This term falling in love? Do you fall in love? Do you accidentally fall in love? So these two scholars have disputed as to whether you have a choice in terms of falling in love? Or are you forced to fall in love? And the more favorable opinion is that it's a mixture of the two. It's a mixture of the two, the Asia Yes, you have the choice. It's not like the Hollywood movies. In the Bollywood movies, the minute you see a girl, everything goes in slow motion, and then stars start falling down. And then immediately, you know, hearts fly about everywhere. That's not how it works. It's a choice that you are making. It's a choice that you are making. And then onwards after you
have fallen in love. Yes, love can even drive you to insanity. Love can make you go crazy, all of those things. So it's a mixture of the two. But it's very important that you see whether it is within the guidelines of sherry and number one. In other words, can you make it halaal by perhaps marrying that individual, if you can't, if you can't make it Hello, then that love has to be terminated because it is going against the commandments of Allah Subhana Medina, and you cannot involve in any form of Zina in the process of making in Thailand, you can involve in any form of Zina. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam agrees, and he said a long while approach is very raw.
And then He intercedes on behalf of movie. Yeah, but why don't you think about getting back with movie? Very rarely a long one had an answer as to why for a long while it was lm Yasuda, Ma, are you commanding me? In other words? Is it a command from you that I get back with him?
for a long while it was an answer. No, it's not a command. It's just merely me suggesting this because I feel sorry for movies when I see him like this, because he's so much in love with you. The narration goes along the lines of these words, but very raw, at the end of the day of the law one has she says, I don't wish to get back with him. And also Why is that a long while he was let go of the matter. But there are many lessons that can be derived from this incident that took place during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Number one, the primary lesson is that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was never intolerant of love, as long as it was within the
guidelines of Sharia. Look at the life of grace, who lives at a long while. He said, I'm gonna ask for the long line. He embraces Islam after some time. After a few years. He embraces Islam after everybody is embraced. But after some time, he comes to embrace Islam by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And he was about to pledge allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he out stretches his hand to pledge allegiance, but then he takes his hand back then, instead of long winded will send us I'm gonna be honest with you long line. Yeah. Why are you having second thoughts? I'm gonna ask for the long line then asks the prophets that along while you send me out of
sutala I want something assured, I want to know that the minute I embrace Islam, and the minute I pledge allegiance, that all of my previous sins should be forgiven, because he was even amidst the army that fought against the Muslim moon. So he wanted an assurance that all of his sins would be forgiven. But also, why
are you not aware that Islam is all Islam?
that Islam, erases and deletes all of the sins that happened before Islam? In other words, the minute the minute you embrace Islam, that embracing of Islam erases all of your sense of art, well be it major or minor sins, the minute you embrace Islam, so I'm gonna ask you a shirt, and he embraces Islam. Now, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was an amazing leader. He was an amazing leader, and he knew how to identify talents amongst people. And he saw 100 naturally allow him to be a very strategic thinker. So he immediately put him in charge of a particular expedition and send him now this was just after he embraced Islam. So I'm gonna ask Allah Allah explained that
I'm gonna ask how did this notion in his mind that you know I was appointed in charge, there has to be something between me and the Prophet for a long while and maybe he really likes me. So the minute he got back, I'm gonna ask for the long line. He goes to the to the lights and a long while he was telling me he asked for the lights that alarm while he was setting them. Yasuda law, who is the most beloved of all people until you
Now that I've given you the context behind the heartbeat, the background of the heartbeat now we come about to the answer of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam very coolly replied
to us for the long run. He was not expecting that reply. He wants you to know amongst the many, but the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam immediately went to Arusha or the Alamo I'm so hungry when I asked him He said, No, no yasutaka from the men from the men in our region.
And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then said, Of hoo, ha, her father replied to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam relating everything to Ayesha, he could have said that he could have said my friend Abu Bakr. No, he said her father, once again attributing it to eyeshadow, the last one, this was not something did something done in in privacy, it was something done in public. He said a lot while he was under was professing the love that he had for his beloved wife, eyeshadow, the above line. And likewise, there are many, many instances in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, where he said a long while he was telling us to profess his love for his beloved
wives, and from them, it shall be a long line, we know of the incidents, swiftly running through them. When I show the last one I used to drink from a cup the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to take the cup search for the place where the lips of eyeshadow, the long line our place and drink from that very same place. When I saw the last one I was eating meat, the prophets of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would take the piece of meat search for the place where I shall be a long one had placed her mouth and eat from the very same place. Look at the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is pure love My dear respected elders and brothers in
Islam. This is the love that needs to be encouraged and inculcated into our lives into our marital lives within the the guidelines of Sharia as the closing note, so what about celebrating love? What about celebrating love? Tomorrow, the 14th of February worldwide, all over the world. Love is celebrated under the slogan Valentine's Day. This What does Islam have to say about this My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam is formed is from the Roman cultures and that to the pagan ik Roman cultures, and this in no way is encouraging love or the type of love that we were talking about all this while instead it encourages love, especially love outside the framework of a halal
marriage outside the framework of a halal marriage. And at times, even spouses who love one another so much just because perhaps the husband forgot to wish her on Valentine's Day or get her a rose or a box of chocolates, they start fighting and at times marriages have ended up on the rocks because of that.
So it is a Roman pagan culture that Islam does not encourage at all. Rather we Muslims we believers, we celebrate love on a daily basis and not once a year. We celebrate it with our spouses in a halal way on a daily basis by proving our love to them, and not just once a year where we buy a rose or a box of chocolates. So please refrain from celebrating these celebrations that have come from pagan cultures rather adopt the teachings of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam if you wish to be successful in this world as well as the hereafter. mela Isaiah journal opened the doors of goodness for all of us when we forgive our sins many accept our good deeds. And just as how
