My dear respected elders brothers, sisters and the viewers of the daily reminder network. serovar aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Alhamdulillah harrowby. Ira mean, Posada de vos le ma ashrafi ambia. Evil mo serene Nabina Wahhabi Vina karate ioannina Mohammed Abdullah Abdullah LA. Lindy was Hobie he of God who celerity watamu tasleem.
As always, we begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala who is our Creator sustainer nourisher, protector and cure, and we ask Allah subhana wa Taala 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 tried upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of the
merrier respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam, the whole purpose behind us having this series with the help of Allah subhana wa tada is to take home, it hats off, every single night for all of us in sha Allah, a heart softener that would soften our hearts, because most of us, including myself, our hearts are riddled with diseases. And when I say diseases, I don't mean cardiovascular diseases. But on the other hand, spiritual diseases, diseases like hatred, diseases like envy, jealousy, malaise, pride, Allahu Akbar, at times, because of the education that we have acquired, we become so proud, forgetting our hearts forget that it was a law of the Almighty, who taught us that
education. At times we are in a seat of power, our hearts forget that it was Allah Subhana Hua Dinah who put us on that seat of power. And at times, we are in the lap of luxury, we have so much of wealth, our hearts forget that it was Allah the Almighty Who gave us that wealth.
So because of all of the all of those diseases of that nature, our hearts begin to harden, our hearts start to become so hard. There are times when we want to try and ponder on the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala we find it difficult to do so we want to weep and cry in front of Allah subhana wa Taala but because our hearts have hardened tears, no longer Flo May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all soften our hearts. So in short loudhailer for today's hot softener, we will be touching on love.
Love is an extremely powerful emotion, it is an extremely powerful feeling which has been ingrained into our hearts. Wherever you look around, you see love manifesting itself between a father and his child, between parents and their children, between the children towards their parents, between spouses husband towards his wife and a wife towards her husband. We say even human beings to animals.
Love manifests itself in so many ways, but inshallah loudhailer we will be touching on the most purest form of love, love at the pinnacle of its purity and that is loving our maker the love for Allah subhanho wa Taala loving the source of love, or the creator of love Allahu Akbar, and that is a loss of a Hannah Hua Dinah because that is the pinnacle of purity, love Arabs in general they translate the word love to mean as a Safa which means purity and when we talk about purity that is the love for Allah subhanahu wa eila love for his beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and please remember Salawat whenever I mentioned his beautiful name, love has divided itself
into so many categories. But when we come from the top love towards Allah subhanho wa Taala love towards his messengers Allah hemos salatu salam, love towards the scholars love towards the Sahaba revoir la he died I imagine my love towards the imara Hema Houma la hora Mehta and wasa all these types of love indoctrinate itself in that one particular term. I'll hold that. So love at the pinnacle of its purity is to love Allah subhanahu wa taala and to love grace
law he said the law while he was selling because he'd been
around a long line, he mentioned that there are three is in the noble four iron that go hand in hand. In other words without one, the other cannot exist. I am the one at Omaha to law school. If you obey Allah subhanho wa Taala you have to obey Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam you cannot say that I obey Allah subhana wa Taala but I obey, but I this obey Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because that won't work, nor can you say I obey Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but then I'm going to disobey Allah behind them who are the Allah, it goes hand in hand to law to the next to ayah is to establish salah and give out Zakah a person cannot only establish salah and not
give out Zakah and the final idea is that you be grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala likewise, you be grateful and to your parents. These are the three ayah and let's look at a few teachings of my beloved chef Imam Ibn Al Karim Rahim Allah, who is also known as the specialist of the hearts because he talks a lot that he has written extensive researches on a person's heart and how to cure the diseases, the spiritual diseases of our hearts. He says, either reset Shakira to Lima have Betty filled
that if an individual or if the tree of love is planted in an individual's heart, Allahu Akbar. eloquent beautiful words either coreset shujaa Maha basophil call if the tree of love is planted in an individual's heart, I II The Tree of love for Allah subhanahu wa taala and his beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if that tree is planted in an individual's heart
was so clear, B ma l f. lancy. Amitabha. Atul Habib, and if that beautiful tree is watered with the pure waters of
sincerity, and the waters of following Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, two main factors that are missing in today's society. class number one, sincerity is completely gone. May Allah subhanahu wa taala fill our deeds with a class because many of us including myself, we do everything for name and fame. For the publicity, we give out charity to become known as a philanthropist. But on the other hand, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said, along the lines of these words, that when you give out sadaqa, what your right hand gives out, your left hand should not know about it, you should keep it top
secret, but today we plaster it around so that the whole world knows about our charity, because why we want to be known as a really charitable person, Allahu Akbar. And then the second important factor following the lifestyle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, many of us including myself, we suffer complexes to look like our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our beloved master who cried Amati amati, who cried out for us, we feel ashamed to adopt his life as our lives Allahu Akbar. We feel ashame to follow him. We feel ashamed to place him as our role models, may Allah subhanahu wa taala help us all to follow Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So if that tree of love is watered with the pure waters of Islam and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that tree as Lou has been
called, that tree will be firmly grounded, the roots of that tree will be firmly grounded in that individuals heart. And we're further ruha mutesa nombe cidre till moonta Allahu Akbar, the branches of the tree would grow far and wide, so much to the extent as if it would read Sidra to monta the utmost boundary where even jabril alayhi salatu salam could not cross when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went up on mirage. This is the beauty of love for Allah subhanho wa Taala and for his beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because the minute we set ablaze our hearts with the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam automatically our hearts will purge out all
Have those evil feelings, all of those evil things, all of those evil desires that are lurking in our heart, our hearts will purge out everything and our hearts will become supple and soft. Our hearts will easily grasp that which is good. Our hearts will be able to ponder and reflect on the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala our hearts will fall in sajida in front of our mind, Allah.
I'm not saying that performing sajida in Salah is not important, but just think many of us we perform so many such that throughout a single day. At times, our hearts are elsewhere Our hearts are wandering. Our forehead is on the ground, Bahasa elsewhere, our hearts are perhaps taking account of our business. Our hearts are thinking of something else whilst we are in prayer. But in reality, our hearts need to be in sajida in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala because that heart will indeed be successful in this world, as well as the hereafter because my dear respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said in an authentic
hadith, the narration goes along the lines of these words that in general what we think is fitna what we think is that fitna is generally presented to our limbs, perhaps it's presented to our eyes to our ears, but on the other hand, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that fitna trials calamities tribulations are presented to the heart First of all, it is presented to an individual his heart and look at the parable Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gives us it is presented like a straw man. Like the met you all of y'all are seated upon like a straw man. Look at how the straw has been woven one after the other fitna will be presented one after the other
to an individual's heart. And if that heart accepts the fitna, that heart becomes dark like an overturned vessel. May Allah subhanahu wa taala save us all. But on the other hand, if the heart rejects that fitna, if that heart rejects that evil, that heart becomes like a polished mirror, Allahu Akbar, because it is very, very important that we work on our hearts many respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam, let us use this month of Ramadan to fast with our hearts just as how we starve from Daybreak till dusk. Let us also Let our hearts starve. Let us not give into the evil desires that are lurking behind in our hearts, that does purify our hearts, let us ingrain the love
of Allah subhanho wa Taala the love for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pure love for the minute we do that we will start enjoying we will enter into a completely new dimension in our eBuy that the minute we open up the Koran because our hearts are filled with love for Allah subhanahu wa Tada. We will enjoy reading and reciting every single word. The minute we tie that beer inshallah we will enjoy Asana until we give Salaam it will be as if we are in the gardens of Jenna when we tie tech beer for Salah. Whatever good deed we do if it is infused with the love for Allah subhanho wa Taala and his beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it will take us to new
dimensions in our ibadah May Allah subhanahu wa tada ALLAH forgive all of our sins, and may hear the almighty fill our hearts and set ablaze hearts with pure love for Him and His Beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and may God Almighty accept our good deeds. And may He help us to make the best out of this month of Ramadan as if it is our last month of Ramadan. And may He unite us in the gardens of Jenna, just as how he united us here tonight with our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
