Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen at hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala shortfill MBA you will more saline Nabina Muhammad Ali he of total Salah will attempt to swim among buried, brothers and sisters Welcome to a brand new series. And as you can see from the title, this brand new series is something that I hope all of us can appreciate once you read the title, and the title literally is when Allah loves me. And when we talk about the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala there are so many different things that we can talk about. There's so many different angles that we can approach this beautiful subject. But what we're going to do is
I have a book in front of me here, and this particular book is the book that I've chosen Alhamdulillah that I want to use for this series and it's not going to be a long series, so rest assure that inshallah perhaps maybe 10 videos or maybe even less than that. And this particular book that I'm using here, it is a book by the famous scholar of Nokia, Motorola, Motorola, which is called an Mooji by to Lima Hubba Tila and the things that require Allah subhanho wa Taala is love that qualify Allah subhana wa Taala as love for you. And at the top here is actually the explanation of 10 different reasons or things that if no km had come up with is that if you do it, if you
perform it if you're part of it, you make it a part of your life, then in sha Allah who Thailand you will have the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so I'm going to go through every single one of them that ignore cleome Rahim Allah mentions in this particular booklet, this copy that I have is in Arabic, I'm pretty sure you can find a PDF online in English as well. So take a look at that I'll try to look for it myself. And if I do find it, I'll share it on my page in sha Allah hotellin. However, for this first session, it's only wise that before we jump into the book, that we give a brief introduction to the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And this particular subject is really unfortunate that when we talk about a lot and so Adele 80% of the time, we will focus on the fear of Allah, Allah punishment, jahannam and all of these things, and rarely actually talk about how a lot so a loves his creation and the love of Allah Himself. And this is also a message and I have to say this even to some of our parents, some parents out there, when you teach your children and you introduce a lot and Islam to them, the first thing that they learn is just how mean Allah can be. If you don't eat if you don't do this, if you don't listen to mom and dad, Allah will punish you, the shaitaan will come to you alone will be angry with you. And
actually what that does is that it gives you this skewed incomprehensive outlook and understanding of who Allah is, you will never truly understand who Allah is. If you only stick to one side of the spectrum if you only focus on the fear. And as our earlier Matt tell us, fear is a big part of this picture. But love is the priority. It's the first thing that you should introduce yourself with when you're speaking about a love when you're learning about his names and his attributes. The first thing that you should learn about is the love of Allah. And part of that journey is you also learn the flip side of the coin which of course is the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala Now with that being
said, in the Quran, there are several a yet there are literally dozens and dozens of Hadith, speaking to us and encouraging us to understand the love of Allah azza wa jal and Subhana Allah some of it is directed actually mentions the word of hope in it. But then other verses don't end there indirectly link us to the love and mercy of Allah azza wa jal, and the very first a is that you recite when you open a luz book, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen Praise be to Allah Who is the master and and sustainer and the love of all of mankind. When you listen to that verse, what do you think about do you immediately think about the fear of Allah? Do you think about his alesse
punishment? Are you terrified of this a literally All praise is due to Allah and Muslims when we use Al Hamdulillah. We all know where we did an entire video just on Alhamdulillah which was in our previous series, which was video number one, I encourage all of you to take, take a look at that insha Allah, but we spent an entire video just talking about Alhamdulillah and the fact that how we use Alhamdulillah to describe all of the happy, wonderful and positive things in our lives.
But with that being said, there is a beautiful verse in suta Toba where Allah so which tells us that he says pull in Cana Abba banette will come. If you truly claim that you love Allah azza wa jal then love Allah above your own parents above your children, that you love Allah and even the A continues and it mentioned several categories. You love Allah more than you love your homes, your wealth, your your, your unwell. So all of the luxuries of this world, the world in and of itself, and what's important here to realize that a lot so Joel, what he's telling us here is that everything in this world is secondary to the love of Allah azza wa jal. And it's important for us to understand that
when we're talking about this beautiful subject, what it does to us as the believer, when we love Allah, we want to worship Him more, we trust him more, we want to turn to him more. And even if Allah did not create us, a love would still be worthy of that love. So that's important. We don't qualify to give Allah subhanho wa Taala love just because Allah gave us something first, Allah created us or Allah provided for us. Because even if we were not in this world, as a believer, we must believe that Allah still is worthy of love. And Subhana Allah, it's one of the first things that happen in gender before the creation of this world before the creation of human beings that the
angels were in constant worship of Allah, they loved Allah subhanho wa Taala they would flap their wings in love and praise with Allah so gentle. And so in this short series, we want to go through some of the things that help us to sustain the love of Allah azza wa jal. So in other words, if we do it, as a result, Allah will love us. And we're going to go through 10 things that are easy, that are practical. It doesn't matter what level of Islam you are at with doesn't matter what knowledge you have or don't have. It doesn't matter where you come from. It doesn't matter what your background is, you deserve to have the love of Allah azza wa jal and the fact that you are here is
enough of a reason to encourage you, that you can have the love of Allah, you can do the things that you need to do so that Allah will love you. And my brothers and sisters, when Allah subhanho wa Taala loves us, Allah will protect us provide for us, keep us safe, keep us healthy, and make us the best of this world and the hereafter be is Neela hytera Allah, so some of the things that I want to share with you so that you know that there are certain signs or yet or indications that the love of Allah azza wa jal is with you. Number one. So these are the signs of the love of Allah azza wa jal number one is that you believe in Allah. And when I say belief in Allah, I don't mean that you have
a man and you have faith in Allah because we already have that what he let you hum, but with that belief of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It is manifested, you see it in how you speak, how you conduct yourself, how you interact with people, how you do business, your level of honesty, your level of care, your level of patience, your self control, all of these wonderful qualities is a reflection. Why? Because you love Allah azza wa jal and you trust in Him, He gives you certain instructions, and you trust those instructions, you'll follow it to the best of your ability. So that's number one is that you believe and you trust a lot, so in all of your affairs, and number two, is that you are
grateful of the blessings of Allah azza wa jal and what he has blessed you with. Now all of these points that I'm sharing with you right now is not for me, actually, scholars have written and authored several volumes of books and material on the subject. And so the second sign that the love of Allah azza wa jal is with you is that you are grateful you appreciate the blessings that you have, you know, one of the great scholars hassanal basilea rahima hula
once a man came to him, and said, Oh, mmm, please make dua to Allah azza wa jal that Allah subhanho wa Taala increases me in that is so hessonite Buster The law says to the man, okay, fine, I will pray and make dua for you. But I want you to give me your arm, and the man looks at hustle and bustle mo lenses. How can I give you my arm? I need it. So it has an embassy says okay, fine. We'll give me your leg. He's like, What are you talking about? I need my leg or could give me your head. I made my head and hassanal Busey was trying to teach this man that look. You have so many blessings already and you're still like asked
And you want and you desire more. What has suddenly busted who was trying to teach this man is not that it's, you know, you shouldn't ask Allah for things No, because a lot so a jewel in the Quran tells us to ask from him, asked from his bounties asked from his blessings. That's not the lesson that has celibacy was teaching this man, he was trying to teach him that in order for you to get more of the risk of a lot. And so again, it starts off with being grateful with what you already have. If you can achieve and preserve what you already have, and you appreciate it with gratitude, Allah will always give you so it's not a matter of just asking a lot and then wait for some sort of
response No, just simply about being grateful, and appreciate the blessings of Allah. And when you do this, not only does Allah give you more, but Allah loves you more. Number three is that we will never be able to truly repay Allah subhanho wa Taala, for everything that he has done for us. You know, I was talking to a sister, just before the lockdown. So three, four months ago, she came into the office, she had a big problem. She was trying to have children, and she couldn't have kids. The doctors had told her there were too many complications with her. And if she had a child, she would literally pass away, or the child will die. And the husband and between her and her husband, there
were conflicts in the marriage as a result of this issue. And she didn't know what to do. She didn't know what else to say. She went to the doctor, and this is the conclusion of the doctors. I'm not a doctor. All I could say to her was look, sister, ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give you a child, just pray. Prayer is the thing that the solution that we have to all the world's problems, you have cancer pray Allah heals you. You have you want to have children, but you're not able to get pregnant, pray that Allah gives you children. You know, this has happened to me few years ago, where another sister came to me, and she couldn't have children. And she was begging for any pot any way
possible that she could try to have children. What can she do? What can she say? What can she recite, etc. and Subhanallah? You know, I gave the same answer to that sister years ago as the same sister that came to me a few months ago, you got to pray for this stuff. Because at the end of the day, it's not what we do. It's not what we say it's not as a result, okay, I do A, B and C. And as a result, I deserve this in return. Because our Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam told us no one will enter agenda as a result of their deeds, but rather they will enter agenda because of Allah's mercy. And so we can't repay a lot. So a jail for what he's done to us. But what we can do is we pray and
pray and escolares so watch out for more with the with the attitude of gratitude. Anyhow, the sister that years ago, she couldn't have children. I just told her to pray, ask Allah azza wa jal to give it to you because he is in charge. No matter what complications you have, no matter what the doctors say, at the end of the day, we trust our doctors, but we trust a lot more. That sister has five kids today. So panela, five kids. And I was just blown away. Even the doctors were shocked. And as a matter of fact, I later on learned from the same sister, that the doctor that diagnosed her with all the complications, just listen to this subpoena law, the doctor that diagnosed her with those
complications. That same doctor is trying to have children with his wife, and on till this day does not have any kids. So you know, the doctor is saying A, B and C but there's no guarantee that even the doctor themselves will be able to achieve those things. You know, I've heard stories similar to this over the years I could remember a long time ago as well, where the doctor diagnosed somebody with cancer. This happened in the Middle East, diagnosed the patient with cancer and told the patient start saying your goodbyes. Get your family together and you know you're going to leave this world you're going to die in about two to three months. So start preparing yourself. Within those
three months. That patient started calling his family, his wife, his children, his parents, everybody they were flying in from all parts of the world. Everybody's crying and saying goodbye etc, etc. Within that three months. Guess who passed away. The doctor suffered a heart attack and passed away and that man is still alive today. So Pinilla that's what happens when you show gratitude to a lie so a gel and you trust in Him and you love him and you pray to him. You go to the doctors, you take the medicines you trust the advice, but deep down within a law is your real doctor.
Their real medicine is when you raise your hands and you're praying to Him. And when you put your forehead to the ground and you're making salute to him, that's the real medicine and that's where the real cure is. And in your heart, you know this. Number four, is that when we love Allah subhanho wa Taala we love the messenger sallallahu it was sent and we can't forget the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. There is no such thing as I love Allah, but just him alone, everything else and everybody else, it doesn't matter. It doesn't work that way. Well, in quantum to hipbone, Allah phetchaburi, only we've done this verse in one of our previous episodes, you say that you love Allah, then follow
this man sallallahu it was set up. That's how important the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam is to align. So again, if you love Allah, then you must love this man and follow his teachings, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And finally my brothers and sisters, as we mentioned earlier on in this short reminder, if we were not here without us, if we were not alive, we believe that Allah is still deserving of devotion, love and worship. So with or without us a lot. So it just still deserves to be loved. And this is really important, because why that will help us that when it's our turn to leave this world, that we know and we're confident, and we're optimistic that we leave this world
that we love allies so much, and that love will continue through his creation. It doesn't end with you. And so I mean, that removes that whole selfish attitude. And okay, well, I've done my part now, whatever everyone else does. I don't care about that. No, you want that love to continue. So what do you do? It motivates you to build and leave a legacy. You teach your children, you teach your family about a law, and in a game, you're not teaching them? The first thing is to fear Allah, Allah will punish, you know, start off the conversation in a positive way. Let me give you an example, at least logically, so it makes sense. If I told you I had a friend, and I mentioned his name to you, and I
said, Yeah, this is my buddy. The first reaction from what you know about my friend is, man, that guy is so bitter. You know, I hate that guy. A guy so angry has no patience. He's always this. He's always that and that's your friend. And then I say to you, yeah, you know, he does have those qualities. But man, I can trust him. Deep down in him. He's a good guy. I can, I can give him the keys to my house and say, Look, I gotta go, I gotta travel, take care of my home. And I know he'll take care of my home. Yeah, he's a bit bitter, but deep down from within, he's a good person. Would you trust him as well? Would you appreciate that person as well? And so the point here is that, even
from a logical sense, that we want to love Allah subhanho wa Taala. We want to worship Allah azza wa jal. So we have to present those kinds of qualities, even on the outside and not give the wrong impression to anybody that at the end of the day, it's our trust with him. He's our priority. So whether it's something upsets somebody else or not, at the end of the day, I have to follow somewhere and know what I hear and I obey. And so just think about some of these principles, my brothers and sisters, and think about that at the end of the day. The love of Allah azza wa jal is where we want to concentrate on the most. That's where the conversation has to begin. And so this
series I hope, and I pray that in shout, Allahu taala, you'll appreciate it. And that your love for Allah and so will will increase and you know what you get in return, you'll get the love of Allah azza wa jal in return in sha Allah. And so May Allah azza wa jal bless us with that we have the ability to worship trust and love our Creator. So that insha Allah hotevilla we receive that same love in return and even more, male Larissa, which will bless all of you and reward all of you.
