Wakulla dot infinity My bad. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that just as he has gathered us here today under the Dave GEMA May Allah subhana wa Tada gather us along with our families in general for those who Allah
in the companionship of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam without any accountability. I mean yeah, Ramadan I mean,
brother and sisters in the Quran, when Allah talks about a relationship, whether it is a relationship with a
Law, whether it is a relationship with a Prophet SAW Salem, or is relationship with dunya and the materialism of this dunya Allah uses the word hope often in the Quran.
Hope means love. And love is the key reason behind every single motivation and every single strength. If you ever ask a person, when a person is when a person has love for materialism, what makes a person go every single day, a person who sleeps a night wakes up in the morning, they're constantly thinking about dunya dunya dunya it is what motivates them the love of this dunya motivates them. And even if they suffer a loss in this dunya it does not deter them. In fact, they keep on moving forward. Why? Because it is love. That love can be regarding materialism, it can be for money, it can be for fame, it can be for power, it can be for anything. But the main once again
when we talk about love is always about motivation and strength. Even when it comes to love regarding our own Deen when we look at the lives of the Sahaba the Allahu anhu, whom they loved Allah and His Prophet sallallahu it was send them so much that it gave them motivation, that if I do this, this is what I get in return. But no matter how much persecution, no matter how many adversities they went through, and they experienced because they loved Allah, and because they love Rasulullah sallallahu he was sending them they had this strength and they had this internal strength I will say that nothing could deter them, and nothing could break their Iman and shake their Iman.
So when we talk about love, especially when we talk about love of Allah and the love of Rasulullah sallallahu ala he was sending them. First of all we know that we spent we are supposed to love Allah subhana with the item, but the only way we can get to Allah subhanho wa Taala Ireland, the only way we can earn the love of Allah, the only way we can earn the respect of Allah, the only way we can earn the mafia of Allah subhanho wa Taala is through Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam brothers and sisters, often when we talk about the love of Allah, we, you know, for many of us, it sounds cliche. We're going to talk about the mafia of Allah. It sounds cliched, because I've heard this
over and over again. But think about this for a moment. Imagine we're standing on the Day of Judgment. At that time. We need the love of Allah. We need the Rama and a mercy of Allah. We need the mug FIRA of Allah, and we need the love of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in order for us to succeed. See, often when we talk about the love of Allah, and the love of the Prophet has sent them we try to see it from the perspective of dunya Oh, I'm in dunya I have this I have that. But put yourself on the Day of Judgment. Where will Allah he the only thing that will benefit us the only approval that we need, the only love that we need, the only mercy that we need. And the only
forgiveness that we need is de is all from Allah subhanho wa Taala for on the day of judgment if a person is deprived of these things, it does not matter how much money we have. It does not matter how many followers we have on social media, it does not matter how much money we have, and what our social status is and so forth. It does not matter how much how many people I know who have power and so forth, will Allah He it is irrelevant on the Day of Judgment. This is why in this dunya we work towards the love of Allah, and we work towards the love of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam.
And as I said earlier, the only way to get to Allah is through Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. That is the only way. If a person says I'm going to get to Allah, trying to find a way to Allah, other than Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it will not be approved by Allah subhanho wa taala. That is why Allah says in the Quran, call In Kuntum, to a boon Allah, you claim to love Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah is telling the Prophet alayhi salam, that all those people who say that they love Allah, then they have to follow me. Because there were people in the time of the Prophet SAW Salem, who said, We believe in Allah, we love Allah, but they do not want to follow the
message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they did not want to learn about the Prophet SAW Salem, they do not want to believe in the message of the Prophet alayhi salam, and hence Allah is telling them giving them a very strong message. The only way you can come to me is to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam. So the question is that why do we need to love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam there are four reasons why today inshallah
The I'm going to share with you why we need to truly love Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the very first reason why we need to truly love the Prophet alayhi salam is because our iman is not complete, till we don't put Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam EBA, even above our own self, when I'm going to hop over the Allahu Allah and came to the Prophet SAW Selim and says, I love you more than everything, but not more than myself. The Prophet saw someone told him your iman is incomplete. And what that basically means is for many of us, we have a difficult time understanding this hadith. What this hadith is saying, is not saying that you cannot love ourselves. This hadith
is saying that I cannot love my parents. This hadith is not saying that I cannot love my children. What this hadith is telling us brothers and sisters, is that when it comes to love of ourself, see a lot of times we will be we can neglect everyone else. But we won't neglect ourselves because because we have such an high ego. We will do things based on what we think is right. We will do things based on what I what I like, nothing comes between me and my ego. But Roswaal someone's telling on ricotta Well, the Allah one, that you cannot prove me below your ego, you have to put me above your Ego means that the more even you even if a person says I love myself and then the problem is Salam. This
is unacceptable. The prophet is some saying that first, your love when it comes to the hierarchy of love. i The love of the Prophet Solomon has to be at the highest level, even before one's ego because when a person becomes a victim of their ego, but if their ego comes after us was Allahu alayhi wa sallam, then they will do what the Prophet SAW Allah while he was some has taught us to do and hence a person remains in check. A person remains discipline in life. But if we put request salam after everything else, which is the case nowadays, though, we say we have love with what we say we love Rasulillah Salam, but the love of the province something comes after everything else.
This is why one of my teachers he says something very beautiful. When he was explaining this hadith he said to us, that the best way to understand how much we love Roswaal Salam is to ask ourselves whenever we are in any situation in life, ask yourselves we need to ask ourselves, what will Rasulillah Salam do in this situation? That's the question. What does the Prophet SAW Salem demand me to do in this kind of situation? When the Prophet found himself in this particular situation? How do you conduct his affairs? If I say, I'm going to conduct my affairs in my own way, in my own understanding, and not in the understanding of the problems I send them, we are putting our ego
above the love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that is why once again and so the Allahu Allah he says in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that no one's Iman is complete, until I do not become more beloved to them than their own self. And to this hadith Imitate me or Rahmatullah Ali, he says something very beautiful, he says, that no person in this life can obtain the greatest good, if they do not follow us, allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, a person cannot earn the Rama in the Mercy of Allah in this dunya or in the akhira. If they don't follow us, allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says that if a person wants to be saved from the calamities of
this dunya if a person wants to be saved from the fitness of this dunya then they must follow Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam if they want the Mercy of Allah fo the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he says that anyone who wants protection from any punishment, they need to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and faith is the greatest asset from Allah subhanho wa taala. It is the greatest blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala and one cannot, one cannot attain faith, if they do not love Rasulillah Salam more than themselves. The second reason why we need to love rustlers, some is that there are severe consequences when we don't follow when we don't obey.
And we don't love Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the final verse, a subtle, sort of note Allah subhanho wa Taala says Natacha aloo dua Razali Bay Netcom cadoola iba comm Baba, this Iam means that do not call out to the to Lhasa Allahu alayhi wa sallam. The way we will call out to others mean that when we call out to the prophets of salaam we use respectful phrases. That is why Subhan Allah in the Quran we see that whenever Allah talk to Musa alayhis salam and Ibrahim Ali Usama any other prophet besides the Prophet alayhi salam, he would take their names Yan Lulu Yeah, Ibrahim, ya know?
We find this often in the Quran. But Allah shows us that how we need to show respect to the Prophet Selim. There is not a single place in the Quran where Allah called out to the Prophet Allah you sound by saying Ya Mohammed. Yes, the name Muhammad has mentioned four times in the Quran. But never did Allah call out to the Prophet li Osama saying, Yeah, Mohammed, if the, if Allah ever wanted to refer to the Prophet, he will use phrases such as, yeah, you wanna be? Yeah, you are a soul out of respect. So next time when we hear the name Muhammad, we say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When we see when we hear Rasul Allah, don't don't leave it to others. Someone was to say, No, I need to say
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I need to send my peace and blessings upon Rasulullah saw Salam but the point is of this ayah is Allah says, By the Yarlung Allahu Levina Yetta Salah Luna near the center Lulu mean calmly, whether this is actually referring to community work, and if you're gonna ever excuse yourself, you have to get permission from the Prophet SAW Salem. It's a it's a long explanation, but the next part is what my intent is. He gender what Allah says, fell Yeah, hmm. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying to all those people who do not follow who do not study who disobey, who don't love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is saying beware, beware of what
a Lavina you Holly fauna Imani. Those who go against the armor of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and to see by whom fifth NetOne Oh, you see by whom I that was a name. Allah is saying that as a result of our disobeying the province of Salem as a result of not loving Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah will bring fitness in our life. Allah will bring trials and tribulations in our life. And not only that, oh you see the home either Aleem or Allah subhanho wa Taala will give them a severe punishment. And then we'll orlimar they say that this is where Allah says He will bring fitness, fitness will come in this dunya when Allah says either when I leave, this will come
in the akhira brothers and sisters, once again going back to what even take me to the lawyer they said, if we want the Mercy of Allah, we need to follow this law Salaam and if we want to be protected from the trials that are sent by Allah subhanho wa Taala we need to follow Rasulullah sallallahu it was sending them for if we don't, then there will be many challenges in our life, even today. Subhan Allah when you look at the affairs of the entire Muslim world, that is why I always when people come in, they asked me about the affairs of the Muslims around the world. We don't need to go far just go back to the Battle of heart. Go back to the story of the Battle of hearts. When I
saw someone posted 50 Archers, and he said don't move from here. This story teaches us don't undermine they say that this toy teaches us the importance of following the instructions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, these 50 people, many of them left their position to go and seek materialism, they left the instructions of the Prophet because they had the love of this dunya and because they went for dunya. As a result, the Muslims suffered many casualties in the Battle of Ohio. Not only that, but the Prophet alayhi salam, he lost a tooth, His cheeks were bleeding and so forth. And many other things happen to the Prophet Salla. But the ALMA they say that this is a
result of people neglecting the Sunnah and the practices of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Next, why should we love Rasul Allah Salem? Because he loved us so much. Imagine someone shows you so much love, and you don't show them any love? What would you say about a person like that, that a person has shown so much love and Rama and mercy, but a person does not reciprocate that when we talk about the life of the prophet salaam, how much he loved you and I brothers and sisters, the problem is some is giving us an example, in a hadith, that your example in my example is that person who has kindled a fire. Now you may not understand we may not understand this, because we live here
in America. But I remember one time I went overseas, and the you know, as you know, as you all know, overseas that electricity is a luxury for many communities. I remember when I went to a masjid
and the electricity had gone out. And what they would do is that because you know this, these are very rich neighborhoods and communities. Throughout the entire week they would cover their prayer rugs and white sheets and doing and then on Friday, they would remove the white sheets because people will come for Jamar and then they will cover up after Jamar for the entire week. And I remember one night the electricity went out and they began to light candles inside the budget so that people can see around. That is when I understood this hadith Wallahi that is when I understood this hadith, because what I saw was the as the candle was
was, you know, there was there was a flame, of course on the candle and the candle has been kindled. What happens? What I saw was that there were insects coming close to that fire, and I saw insects going into the fire and burning up. That is when I understood this hadith the hadith is the My example in your example, is like that of a person who has kindled a fire, and you are leaping into that fire. But what I'm doing is out of love for us out of love for the entire amount of the property of Salem, the property is I'm saying, why don't be projesi come, I'm grabbing you from behind, you know, when a kid is about to go a long time ago, before we had these smart homes, you
know, when kids would put their fingers into the sockets, and we will pull the kids away like this, like from the you know, from the collar and so forth, and we will pull them back, but also someone saying that you are going into the fire Jahannam and I'm pulling you back. I'm saving you from the fire Jahannam but many of you are still many of you are still getting out of my grip and they're falling to the fire genre. And when I saw these insects going into, into this fire over and over again, that is when Subhanallah I understood this hadith
that the prophet has some he cares so much for you and I he wants to protect us he wants to be there for us. That is why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he's sitting with the Sahaba think about is there anyone who's more closer to the province and um then the Sahaba No, but ya know, so somebody saying that I can wait to visit and see my brothers. And when the Sahaba said era Salah aren't we your brother's? The property sounds said that you are my Sahaba You are my US hub. My brothers are those who did not see me but they believed in me.
The property is some is referring to you and I as brothers. Think about that honor. But once again that honor is only given to those who showed their love to the Prophet SAW Salem. If I don't show my love, if I don't know who the Prophet Allah you Psalm is, then these kinds of people are not recipients of Allah's mercy. And the Prophet Allah is sums love on the Day of Judgment. So that is why brothers and sisters Subhan Allah you have no idea when you stay there are Hadith of the Prophet Salla how much the prophet is some did for you and I how much the Prophet it is some he went through sacrifices, he lived a life until today we're benefiting from his life, and we're benefiting from
his Sierra, what more do we want from one man and not only that he did so much for us in this dunya in the Akela he will do so much for us. And yet when it comes to love of ourselves when it comes to love of this dunya and when it comes to the love of Allah and the Prophet of Salaam, we will always put Allah's love and the Prophet it sounds love on the backburner brothers sisters, this is really shameful Wallahi this is something for all of us to think about. The fourth thing that why we need to truly love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is because by loving the Prophet SAW Salem, this will be our means of salvation in the ark era. When a man came he says that when is the day of
judgment the property is and says what preparations have you made for the day of judgment? And he says nothing but the fact that I love Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. And the Prophet SAW Selim said that a person on the Day of Judgment will be with that person whom they love. In this dunya brothers and sisters, yes, you can say, I believe in the province, salam, we're not talking about believing in the Prophet alayhi salam, we're talking about loving Rasulullah saw. So there's two different things. Let's not mix the two. Let's not mix the two. One is believing one is loving. First, of course we believe. But then through our life we show either we love other things,
or we love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam. So that is why we need to once again when we talk about the love of the Prophet sallallahu it was send them brothers and sisters. This is why we need to love Rasulullah sallallahu because he was without a doubt the most perfect teacher. He was the best Imam. He was the best father. He was the best leader. He was the best advisor. He was the most unselfish person you can possibly imagine. He was the best mediator. He was the most softest person you can find in the community. He was the most balanced person in his life. And subhanAllah he was also the most caring and then this goes on and on. Brothers Sisters, this is why we need to come to
this was the center. This is why we need to love Ross Law Center. I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make us feel amongst those who indeed love Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and may Allah raises amongst those people on the Day of Judgment, who truly love Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam amicable Alameen BarakAllahu Linda welcome fearful and all them wanting to find a commonality with they can Hakeem and stuff that Allah honey welcome what assignments to manifest

In 100, learn from the Hornstein Horner stuff you know when I would be lying surely unforeseen um, so yeah, Medina, Mejia de la Fila medulla, Omani mainland follow her the Allah wants to Allah you need to lower the ruler so that you can we're still in the Mohammed and I will do what a solo I'm about when we talk about the love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam today inshallah I'm gonna finish this by by saying just two things in sha Allah. Two things that we can do in order to bring in order to increase our love for Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam. The very first thing is that we send our Peace and blessings upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allahumma Salli
ala Muhammad wa ala Ali Muhammad, why do we send our Peace and blessings upon the Prophet SAW Selim? Because Allah and His angels, they also send their peace and blessings upon the prophets of Salaam in Allahu wa Malayaka who you saw Luna Allah Nabi Yolanda Amanu Sallu alayhi wa sallam with a steamer. And that is why Subhanallah there's no time right now but if you studied the benefits, the fatwa it of sending our Peace and blessings, upon nos wa salam, there are so many walleye there are so many and there are so beneficial to all of us. So that is why the very first thing is that we send our Peace and blessings upon us Allah. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Number two is, which I
encourage everyone to do is to study the life of the prophet saw Selim study the Syrah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And when I talk about the seeder of the Prophet, I don't mean that you know many people when we teach CEDAW to others, we teach about dates times this, how many people die this how many people stayed alive. This is when the battle took place. This is information. I'm talking about taking a deep dive into the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in studying his life, his demeanor, his nature, his character, how he was as a teacher, how he was an advisor, you know, subhanAllah there are so many things that we can learn from Rasulullah
sallallahu it was setting them dark pertaining to our daily lives. So that is why we need to go back and study the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stay the cedar of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that is when we will gain the love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to make those have to make us from among those who truly in who truly love Rasulillah Salam, and make us from amongst those who will be closest to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the day judgment, mirabile Alameen Allah homeless or Islam one Muslim in Allahu Munster Istanbul one Muslim enough equally McCann Allahumma sunnah Allah mahalo
