Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh at home daily level salatu salam ala rasulillah So today we are on the ninth reason that allows us to receive Allah subhanho wa Taala his love and acceptance in this beautiful book. I'm going to just show it to you guys one last time, this particular book of 10 reasons that qualify you to receive the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala by Abdul Rahim Allah.

00:00:28--> 00:00:29

So we are on

00:00:30--> 00:01:12

I guess you could say point number nine. Point number nine. If no claim Rahim Allah tells us that try your very best to be amongst those that are honest and being those that are loved by Allah subhana wa Island, those who have the qualities that Allah appreciate, so the sincerity, the good, the good etiquettes when you're around people like that, and you do that you intentionally want to associate and be amongst people like that just for the sake of pleasing Allah subhana wa Tada. There is actually one very beautiful Hadith that I want to share with you that is found in Bahati. And this particular Hadith is, of course, one of many a hadith that talks about honesty and sincerity

00:01:12--> 00:02:04

and so on. But this is perhaps one of the most beautiful Hadith on the subject. The Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam tells us I lay couldn't be said for innocent piety lol bill, what in hell? bidra Yeah, de Ll Jenna. I order you to be truthful and to be amongst those that are truthful. Because when you are truthful, it ultimately leads to righteousness. And righteousness ultimately leads you to Jenna, may Allah subhanho wa Taala give us that Allah whom I mean, the Hadith continues, that as long as a slave of Allah continues on the path of being honest and trustworthy, and truthful, then they will be counted amongst those who are truthful in the earth or in gender. In other words, Allah

00:02:04--> 00:02:53

subhanho wa Taala will raise the status and the honor of that individual in front of all of mankind. Why? Because you were honest, you told the truth, you were sincere. And as a result, you love people and people appreciated you. The Hadith also continues what he Yeah, he couldn't wait for in El COVID de la fudo. We're in LA for Julia de la and then the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam warns us of the complete opposite. And he tells us I warn you about lying, because indeed lying leads to wickedness and wickedness leads to the Hellfire, which is a bill. And then the Hadith concludes that the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam continues to explain, as long as somebody remains on the path of

00:02:53--> 00:03:39

being a liar, then they will be counted and written amongst those who lie in the pharaoh mela protect us from the this Hadeeth really takes us straight to the point. If you are honest, it will ultimately lead you to a less agenda. Now the first question here is, why is honesty so important in life? I mean, there are obvious reasons common sense will teach you that people appreciate when you're honest. People respect the truth. At the end of the day, even if the truth gets you in trouble, or people will dislike it or those around you would get offended at the end of the day when you speak the truth. It it raises a status and it gives you this level of honor and credibility in

00:03:39--> 00:04:21

this world like nothing else. When somebody is honest, you can trust them. When somebody is honest, you know that they're sincere, but they're fighting for the truth, the living for the truth. And these are qualities of a belief or these are qualities that Allah subhana wa tada loves and he accepts from us. And the sister quality of honesty is an muhabba those that are beloved, and love one another for the sake of Allah. You know, there's a beautiful story of aroma of the hot tub or the love and he would toss and turn during the night like he would lose sleep quite often during the nights. And some of the companions when they learnt this about or model the love mine. They would

00:04:21--> 00:05:00

ask him what keeps you tossing and turning every night. And you know what he said? He said the reason why this happens is because I'm so anxious to see my brother in Islam more as a Bnei Jebel rhodiola one in other words, aroma, love the more so much that he would lose sleep during the night and this is a brother in faith. It's not even his real biological brother. He just loves him for the sake of Alan he's tossing and turning every night because he can't wait to see more either of the job, a lot of the love on the following day. It gets absolutely amazing.

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

Seeing the level that these companions took love for one another and brotherhood for each other. Allah subhanho wa Taala encourages us to love each other for the sake of Allah. And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, there was a story of a man who wanted to go see his brother. So as he, you know, got on his horse, and he starts riding, and he's going to wards to, you know, another city to visit his brother. He came across an individual who that asked him that stopped him on the path on the 30th and asked him, What are you doing? Where are you going? And so he says, I'm going to see a brother of mine for the sake of Allah. And so the man asked, Do you have any purpose? Do you have

00:05:40--> 00:06:25

any reason to go see him? Because it's quite a distance from where you are. And this man said, No, I have no reason except that I want to see him and I love him for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Later on the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam heard about this incident, and told the man who was questioning this individual seeing his brother, he told that man, go and convey to that individual that because of his love for his brother, that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves him too. So when we love each other, for the sake of Allah, then Allah subhana wa tada will love us in return. And when Allah loves us, there is nothing in this world that can harm you, that could bring you down, that

00:06:25--> 00:07:04

could destroy you. You have a loves love a lead doesn't give his love to anybody. He gives His love to people who are sincere the people who strive in His path, the people who put forth the effort, the people who have Taqwa mess that are to the best of their ability, these are the people that allow us panatela appreciates, and is found throughout the entire quarter. And now with that being said, there are certain things about a company that are honest and loved. There are certain traits and qualities in individuals like that, that you want to keep in mind that the scholars teach us. So here I'm going to read for you a few of the qualities mentioned in a bill claims book that you

00:07:04--> 00:07:51

should look for when you want to find that person and be amongst people that are honest, and that love each other for the sake of Allah. Here's a couple things to look out for. The scholars tell us that when you're around good company, whatever doubts you have now turned into certainty. Why? Because you're having healthy conversations. So if you have certain things that you're unsure about, you're doubtful about life, about religion about yourself, but you're around good company, you know, you're around the company that is honest with you, and that truly cares about you, because why they help you navigate those doubts into certainty so you find clarity in your life. Another quality to

00:07:51--> 00:08:34

look for is those who show off. So Ria and they replace that with a helaas and sincerity. So if they see you or you see them or you see each other, doing things, not necessarily for the sake of Allah, but for the sake of seeking pleasure, and admiration from people, you're no you're amongst the truthful and the beloved, when they tell you and they help you through that and say, Look, do this for the sake of Allah. Don't tell anybody about how much you've donated. Don't tell anybody about all the extra rock arts and worship that you perform. Leave that for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala so they help you reinforce and strengthen your sincerity with your Creator. Here's the third

00:08:34--> 00:09:15

quality to look for woman ALLAH hafiz. Illa Vicar. Then the scholars tell us that when you're amongst these good people, they help you get through, they will help you get through, heedlessness to the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So here's here's an example. So you're around company and when you know you see something wonderful you see a beautiful sky or a beautiful scenery. And everybody says Masha Allah, or they say sapan Allah, look what Allah designed. Look what Allah created. When people talk like that, then realize and understand. That's the company you want to be around. So they're constantly helping you remember Allah, the prophet alayhi salatu was Salam told

00:09:15--> 00:09:29

us in a beautiful Hadith narrated in a Timothy and it's an authentic hadith, that in this world, there are three types of people that are exempted from the curse of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And of them

00:09:30--> 00:10:00

the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam tells us that the one who remembers Allah number two, the one who helps you to remember Allah wamalwa Allah who so the one that helps you remember Allah so when they see Okay, it's time for salud they remind you guys we need to go pray. If they see you saying something wrong or doing something wrong, they help you through the, you know, they'll ask you like, Dude, why are you talking to your parents? That way? They're your parents. they'll treat them that way. So they help you do the right thing and

00:10:00--> 00:10:43

third category mentioned in this Hadeeth is Allah demon omata idema, the scholar or somebody or students of knowledge, you know, it's amazing the Prophet Alayhi salat wa sallam knows that not every one of us will be scholars, but every single one of us will be students of knowledge. So either you are in one category, or you're guaranteed to be in the other category. And so the point is, is that you want to be around people that help you to keep the remembrance of Allah in your life. Another quality to look for is those that desire during your life, instead will desire your life. So they prioritize the Hereafter, from the worldly life meenal kibber a lot out there, from

00:10:43--> 00:11:30

pride to humility. Again, this is really important. These are the qualities that you look for, when you're looking to be amongst good people, people that are honest, and people that love and care for you, for the sake of Allah. So some of the qualities to look for is from pride. They help you develop and sustain some sense of humility, to stay humble, to stay shy to stay modest in the sight of Allah. And one of the last qualities that the scholars encourage us to look for, when you want to be around good company that is pleasing to Allah, is that those who refuse to receive advice, are now more inclined to listening to others and getting naziha. So if you've been a person for for some

00:11:30--> 00:12:04

time, where if somebody tells you something, or gives you a reminder, or tells you Hadeeth or gives you an alternative of doing things, you know, a lot of people are just like, Don't tell me what to do. Who are you, you know, you're like my son, you're like my daughter, don't talk to me that way. I don't need to listen to you, or you don't have any You don't know anything. You don't have the right to give me that kind of knowledge, blah, blah, blah, and it just continues. You go from that bitter attitude, that self, that selfish attitude to now you're opening to you're not now you're open to listen to people, when good advice comes your way you listen to good advice. I mean, even if you

00:12:04--> 00:12:47

don't agree with it, you at least respect that somebody is advising you because they genuinely and sincerely care about you. So these are some of the qualities that the scholars teach us to look out for. So that you know you're around good company. The last thing that I want to mention to you about Sid or about honesty, is that understand that Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us something very beautiful in sorbitol. Allah he, you know, if we just take a quick minute and really just think and reflect on this particular sentence of this verb. It's just amazing really puts things into perspective. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and so tell them, Lee Yes, sala de opin Rn CDP him, Allah

00:12:47--> 00:13:31

will ask the sadiya pain sadiya pain, the truthful ones, who is it referring to? it's referring to the prophets and the messengers AlLahi wa sallam. One of the titles given to prophets and messengers in the Quran, is that they are called aside your pain. They are called the truthful ones, because that's literally what they lived for, was to hold on to the rope of Allah project their message with truth and honesty as best as they could. They never compromised their message. They never would, would bend or bend the truth. They wouldn't just a compromise in terms of the authenticity of their message. They stuck to it till the end. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says about them, and said to

00:13:31--> 00:14:18

him, we're going to ask you, and we're going to question you, the prophets and messengers, if you were really honest and truthful about projecting your message. So here's the point. If prophets and messengers who are the most truthful human beings on the planet, if they're going to be questioned on their honesty, then what about somebody who lies? What's going to be their position in the sight of Allah? What about somebody who occasionally bends the truth here and there? What about if somebody lies on behalf of Allah? You know, the prophet Alayhi salat wa sallam tells us that in an authentic hadith, and this is one of the strongest lineages of Hadith in existence, that the Prophet

00:14:18--> 00:14:51

Alayhi salat wa salam tells us that who ever lies about me about my son, about my prophetic traditions, about my lifestyle about me as a person as a prophet. The point is, anybody who tells a lie on behalf of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam, the prophet it sort of Sam says, let that person reserve their spot in a less jahannam Mela. So to protect us from that. So be being truthful guys.

00:14:53--> 00:15:00

being sincere being amongst people that are honest, loving each other and caring for one another for the sake of

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

Allah is an enormous part of our email. It's one of the fundamental aspects of our faith. And remember, honesty and loving each other for the sake of Allah, they go hand in hand, you can't be honest and then just hate everybody around you or you you're bitter on the inside, there has to be that level of purity has to manifest in the way you treat people. So they go hand in hand with one another. You'll notice and this is the last thing that I leave you with in sha Allah, you'll notice that when you strive to be honest in life, people love you, people respect you, your own life would become easier, better clear, you'll you'll have perspective on things, your relationships will be

00:15:45--> 00:16:22

better your marriage will become better. just life in general becomes so much more easier. You know, somebody wants to told me it's harder for a liar to remember the lie. Because it's a lie, you fabricate a story. So it's difficult for you to trace back when you have to continue with that light. If you can be as accurate. And when the first time you told it, as opposed to the truthful one, the truthful one has nothing to worry about because you're telling the truth. And the truth will always be consistent. It's automatic, it's by default. If you're always honesty way if you're always honest, then everything that you say will always be honest, it'll be consistent. So you have

00:16:22--> 00:17:05

nothing to worry about about retracing your words. Okay, what did I tell so and so I got to make sure that I do the same with this person. You don't have anything to worry about that in that regard. And so don't claim Rahim Allah mentions that once again, honesty and just loving each other and appreciating each other for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala these are qualities that are priority, Allah loves these qualities, Allah pays attention to qualities like this. And as a result you get a less love, when the person has a less love, they ultimately we will end up in a lagenda and inshallah hotel We ask Allah azza wa jal to bless us with Jenna with genital theodosian. area

00:17:05--> 00:17:49
