So now I want to catch everyone welcome back to prayers of the pious.

00:00:07--> 00:00:40

So when you look at the companions of the Prophet peace be upon them you find a man by the name, or the equivalent amount or the Allahu anhu. And who they thought was the secret keeper of the Prophet peace be upon him. He was the one with whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam entrusted the names of the hypocrites the names Luna 15. And her they first says that people used to ask the Prophet peace be upon him about the good thing. So you asked the Prophet slicin about Jenna, they used to ask the Prophet sighs I'm about hopeful things says will come to us, Allah who are in a shot, but I used to ask him about evil and evil consequences, so that I could avoid those things.

00:00:40--> 00:01:16

And this was actually an experiment I did some time ago, I asked, you can actually find this lecture online. The name is the name of that lecture escapes me now but it was a y m convention several years ago. And I asked the crowd, I said, How many of you are more motivated by the fear of Hellfire? Half of them raise their hands, I said, How many of you are more motivated by the promise of Paradise and another half raise their hand because different personalities connect with different things? And that should translate into your specific supplications. So in the case of her they thought, you know, he used to make this he used to make this very particular application. He used to

00:01:16--> 00:01:59

say Allahumma inni will become in Sabah Hinari woman massage. Oh, a lot. I asked you or I seek shelter with you from the mornings and the evenings and the Hellfire, meaning I don't want to touch Hellfire in any way whatsoever. He was so afraid of punishment that he did not want to, in any way encounter it. So used to say Aloma in the era of the weaker men, soba Henare woman massage. And then here's what that translates to, at the end of his life, what they thought was about to die. He made this throughout he made this beautiful supplication. Honestly, I get goosebumps and Pamela was thinking about this. He said Harvey he asked eurosai and Mina dunia he said Oh Allah, this is my

00:01:59--> 00:02:27

last hour in this world. Allah hum in Nikita mo n knee or hip Booker for Berkeley theory pica. Oh Allah, you know that I certainly love you. So bless my meeting with you. How much love Do you have to have with a love and confidence in that love? As you're departing from this world, you can say Oh Allah, you know how much I love you, you know with certainty that I love you. So blessed me and my meeting with you.

00:02:29--> 00:03:05

This is a test for all of us, that are human last that if you want to know what your position with Allah is, then look at his position with you. If you want to know how much God loves you then look at how much you love him. For her they for to have that confidence and that connection with Allah subhanaw taala to not just say Oh Allah, I love you, but to say Oh Allah, you know that I love you is a very powerful testament to the type of relationship that he had with the loss of Hannah Montana. Of course in our situation, the Prophet slicin um, taught us to ask Allah Olam, Aeneas elica humpback Allah asked you for your love will help them in your hair book and the love of those

00:03:05--> 00:03:45

that are that love you and the love of every action that would bring us closer to your love. So asking Allah for his love asking a lot to love him, asking a love for the love of those that are beloved to him, and asking a lot for the love of those that love him and asking a lot for the love of every action that brings us nearer to his love. All of this is what encompasses us at the end of the day, because hope and fear are only the wings, but the love of Allah subhanaw taala is the body and that's the crux of the matter. So May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to die knowing with certainty that we love him and that we are beloved to him. And may Allah subhana wa tada let our
