salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah him Hamid voila early he was a big marine was seldom at the Sleeman Kathira on cathedra my bad viewers around the world and wherever you may be asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept our pm our CM our do is our to our our sadaqa. And all the higher that we do in the month of Ramadan, and especially in the last 10 Nights, ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept from all of us at mutable Alameen. And before I get to the main topic of my talk, I want to just encourage everyone that as we are going through these last two nights at a Milan, and as we are reaching the

00:01:05--> 00:01:45

finishing line, the more closer we get to the finishing line, the more we should exert ourselves, because Wallahi we have no idea whether we will be alive next Ramadan or not. So this last chance is less opportunity for this month that we have. Let's try to put everything that we can into the month of Ramadan, and so that we can come from the month of Ramadan as a better human being and mutable ottoman. So continuing with our branches of faith, we are talking about today another branch of faith that Imam I'll be happy has mentioned. But before that, I have a question for all of you. My question is that do you want to have complete faith? The answer will be for all of us. Yes. Do you

00:01:45--> 00:02:26

want to know that there is something better than Airtec F something that you can do that has been an ethic F and every person will want to know that. Another question I have for all of you is that do you want Allah subhanaw taala to love you? And the answer for all of us would say is yes, we want Allah subhanaw taala to love us. So then I'm about to share with you something that not only will you have complete faith, you will also be able to reach a certain level that Allah subhanaw taala will love you very much. And number three is something that you can do that is better than Erta calf and what am I talking about? It is to help someone for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and not

00:02:26--> 00:03:09

only that, but Imam Al Bahati has mentioned his book and based on the hadith of Ummah, or the yellow line, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, men have been Allah, whoever loves for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala woman, above all God Allah and whoever hates and dislikes for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala what are called Allah and He gives for the sake of Allah wa mana I didn't lie, and he who was holds he withhold for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada forgot this Tech Model Iman abou mama or the Lord mentioned this hadith that the Prophet SAW last Psalm says that whoever does these four things, they have perfected their faith. Brothers and sisters, we have

00:03:09--> 00:03:49

been talking about faith, this entire month of Ramadan, making sure that we do those things to maintain our faith. And there is something called perfection of faith or there's something called you know, perfection of faith and complete faith. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us that anyone who can do these four things, they will have complete faith and another Hadith narrated by ibn Umar Radi Allahu Allahu Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that to go and to help another Muslim brother, in their need, is dear to me than spending a month in seclusion and an erotic app in this Masjid of mine, and then the Prophet salallahu Alaihe

00:03:49--> 00:04:32

Salam, he goes on to say the one who goes and he helps his Muslim brother, till the need of the Muslim brother is complete, meaning that you go and you help another Muslim brother. One is to semi help them and help them out a little but one is to go and help them out completely, that their need is taken care of. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that for this person on the Day of Judgment, Allah will make their feet firm. When on that day, most feet will slip Subhanallah brothers and sisters going and helping each other for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Chef if not with me and I'm with Allah Allah. He explains in the explanation and the explanation of this

00:04:32--> 00:04:59

hadith he says that why is it that the Prophet alayhi salam said that Erta cough, of course we all know the virtues of air to cough, but in this case going and helping your brother is better than air to cough. Because he says that when you go and you are in seclusion and you are in ERIC decaf, you are benefiting yourself, but when you go and you help someone else out, you are benefiting yourself and you're benefiting and your help

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

Seeing someone else out and that in itself is very encouraging and Ardene very commendable in our deen because today brothers and sisters when it comes when it comes to helping each other out when it comes to assisting each other out how many of us do we truly do it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this brings me to another Hadith and this is a Hadith narrated by Oba even Osama throw the Allah Tron where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that Allah says meaning that there's a hadith of cosi she so far I've shared with you two Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and now this is a Hadith Potsie What does Allah say, listen to this very carefully, he

00:05:42--> 00:06:32

says hotpot Maha Bertie, Lil moto has been a fear that my love is do mean that my love is deserving for those people in my love is for those people who love one another only and only for my sake. Why is Allah subhanaw was talking about only for his sake, because this shows the loss and the true intention of a Muslim brother and sister. And then he says, Well, how about Maha Bertie little Mutasa, we read a figure and my love is due for those who visit one another only and only for my sake. And then he says that my love is due for those people who help one another who help one another only for my sake, so loving each other for the sake of Allah, visiting each other for the

00:06:32--> 00:07:16

sake of Allah subhanaw taala loving each other and helping each other out for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then he says Jalla wa Ala at the end of this hadith kotse He says, My love is due for those whose hearts are free of grudges, and those who uphold ties, one another only and only for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. Brothers and sisters we learned from these ahaadeeth that how important it is and our alumni have talked about this, how important it is to love each other, to assist each other being there for our Muslim brother and sister owning only for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. And so what does it mean? When we say loving for the sake of Allah? What does it

00:07:16--> 00:07:56

mean to hate for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala let me quickly explain when it said when we talk about loving for Allah, it means that doing something only and only for Allah sake, why am I helping this Muslim brother of mine? Because Allah wants me to help one another? Why am I assisting him because Allah has instructed me in the Quran, what I want who I will be with Toccoa wallet, I will know if we will are the one Allah is ordering me. Allah is telling me that help each other when it comes to noble actions when it comes to noble endeavors and efforts and do not assist each other when it comes to evil. And when it comes to wrong matters, Allah subhanaw has given us a clear

00:07:56--> 00:08:38

instruction. So when we do this, if I'm doing and helping someone else out, because I want some help back from that, brother, that means that I'm not doing it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala I'm doing it for my own need. I'm doing it for my own cause today brothers and sisters Subhan Allah, how many times today we are so nice, so another Muslim brother and sister, we go out of our way to help another Muslim brother and sister we make we show that we love them. We love them for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala whereas in our heart, why am I expressing my love to this person? Why am I being kind to this person, because this person may be resourceful because this person has

00:08:38--> 00:09:21

connections because this person has something that I can truly benefit from him. And because I can connect with him, no matter what wrong he's doing. He may be living a life of sin, he may be committing haram, but I'm willing to overlook that. I'm willing to overlook that because I can gain some worldly benefit from him. Brothers and sisters, this is not for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. When you help each other, you do it only because Allah wants me to help out. How many times did Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam go out of his way. And he helped other people out. He helped other people out in times when need when he himself said Allahu Allah, he was so needed help.

00:09:21--> 00:09:59

And he went out of his way to help someone else out. And he never sat down and said, I'm going to help you only if you accept Islam, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he showed us that anyone who is in need, you go and you help them yesterday, there are so many hundreds of people, even people who don't believe in Allah, people from other faiths, and we go and we help them why sometimes because I want some publicity or because I'm going to helping them out so that they can become a Muslim. Why do we do it? We do it only only for Allah sake, because Allah has told us and the Prophet saw someone has told us that part of our responsibility

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

is to help mankind to feed mankind. Brothers and sisters remember the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he came to Medina and what did he say? He says, of Shu Salaam. This is a Hadith of salaam narrated by Abdullah bin Salam. This hadith begins with Salam. It ends with Salam. It's all about peace is all about peace. What did the Prophet alayhi salam say? He says of Shu Salaam. He says spread the salam will alter a matam feed the poor feed food meaning what feed those who are in need, go and help out. Because why not? Because I want these people to become Muslim. Yes, that is absolutely fine to have that intention that I want people to see the character

00:10:42--> 00:11:21

and the clock of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but my goal is that I'm doing it only only for Allah sake and to please Allah subhanho wa Taala this is what it means to do something only and only for Allah sake, to love each other. For Allah sake. I love this person. Because this person he is he is a believer in Allah subhanho wa taala. I love this person because he does something good. I love this person because of his o'clock because of his piety because of his Taqwa because how much connected he is with Allah subhanaw taala that's why I love this person. Now on the flip side, you have this question that many people they ask is that what is the meaning of hating someone for the

00:11:21--> 00:12:03

sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. And before I go into this, I want to say something is my own personal opinion about this. Yes, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he talked to me he said the word above although they love to, to dislike someone or to hate someone, many people have translated as as hate. Some people have translated this as dislike, I want to say from a link from an English perspective, the word hate has a much stronger and a much harsher meaning than the word dislike, see dislike is the I could dislike for example, the design of this dislike is something that you may not like you personally you do not prefer. Okay? When it comes to food, there are some

00:12:03--> 00:12:43

foods that you like and there are some foods that you dislike, it doesn't mean that you will never eat it, but it's not your preference. Likewise, to say that you hate someone is a very, very strong word. It's a very strong word. Yes, the Prophet SAW Allah some has taught us yes, we see from the Sahaba or the alotta on him, that when someone would disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala when someone would openly and very deliberately disobey and do something contrary to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu. It was setting him, we see that the Sahaba made it very clear that we do not approve of what you're doing. And there were some cases where this Hala would say that I don't want to talk to

00:12:43--> 00:13:19

you because you are deliberately breaking the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala or clearly neglecting the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but the concept of disliking someone for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala or hating someone for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala means that when someone is breaking the words of ALLAH, when someone is abandoning the Sunnah of the Prophet sallahu, WA, you're sending deliberately, they're doing you're wrong, they know that they're doing it wrong. And now you're explained to them see what is that a person is doing wrong, and they have no idea. They have no idea. And even in that case, we learn from the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam,

00:13:19--> 00:13:57

we learn from the stories of the Ambia that we should still be respectful, respectful, does not mean brothers sisters, a lot of times we misunderstand, respectful does not mean that I'm agreeing to that person. I'm not agreeing that what they're doing is right. I'm simply saying that I'm respecting them as a human being, I respect to them, because they are a human being. And so when it comes to someone doing something wrong, then we can express our displeasure, we can express our disapproval. There is nothing wrong in that, but to go out of our way, or to go and to be disrespectful to that person, to be rude to that person. That is not what we learned from the spirit

00:13:57--> 00:14:33

of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Yes, there are some who will disapprove of many things. He will disapprove of many things, but it was not because of his own personal gain. It was not because I hate someone or I dislike something or someone because if I dislike a person, that I can gain the approval of someone else. A lot of times we dislike also things because there is a benefit for us to we're talking about disliking, owning owning for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. Because this person, what he's doing can displease Allah subhanho wa taala. That's why I did not approve this person. And of course, you know, when we get into this subject even deeper, we talk

00:14:33--> 00:15:00

about the Muslim community and working with those of other faiths. And when we talk about those working with those with other faiths, we have to understand that our o'clock has to be exemplary. Yes, we do not agree we cannot say that I agree with you. There is nothing wrong in saying that what you believe in is absolutely that is your opinion. And we should also understand that the Quran has also taught us etiquettes of working with people

00:15:00--> 00:15:37

Pour of other faiths. But this means also that we dislike we disapprove of what they believe in. But there's nothing wrong in working with other people and we have to, we have to make that distinction. Very, very clear. So once again, we learn that we'd love each other for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala at the end of day, whatever I do, I get the reward from Allah. If I love someone, I'm doing it because I want Allah to be happy with me. If I give something today Subhan Allah we give each other gifts. Why? Because I want this person to give me a gift back that means that we're not doing for Allah sake, mean that we do it because I want Allah to please me. Even if someone does not even

00:15:37--> 00:16:14

say thank you to you, you do someone a favor, and no one says thank you to you to you should not feel offended because at the end of the day, you're gonna get a huge thank you and a huge reward from who from Allah subhanho wa Taala and on the other hand, disliking something for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala means that you dislike something because they are breaking the word of Allah subhanaw taala or they are they are bringing upon them the displeasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala to dislike them and their actions, this is what it is and staying stay away from them staying away from them or showing your disapproval or your displeasure, this is part of disliking for the sake of

00:16:14--> 00:16:51

Allah subhanaw taala But the crux of the matter is, is all about Allah, loving for Allah hating or disliking for Allah subhanho wa Taala ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to make us feel amongst those who like and dislike owning only for his sake, and may Allah subhanaw taala increase us in our faith and may Allah subhanho wa Taala take us from this dunya with iman and faith and may Allah resurrect us with those who have faced complete faith on the Day of Judgment. I mean, over the Allah mean is that Kamala Hey, a salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Sure, hold on now on the
