So now I come over from saliva council Welcome back to another episode of Allah loves. Because we have spoken so much about these attributes and these qualities that we are to attain that are really human manifestations are human vehicles, of the things that Allah subhanho wa Taala has prescribed for himself and many of these situations, we have to recognize out of all of this, that we have a lord who is loving, who is merciful, who is not cruel, who is generous, and Allah subhana wa tada in the process of the does not want to torture His servants. And this is actually a very powerful understanding of a loss of Hannah Montana that we take from the Prophet peace be upon him,

00:00:52--> 00:01:31

especially now in Ramadan. When we have the option, for example, delaying our fast a little bit or, you know, making our hood much earlier, the prophet peace be upon him narrates to us that in the law, your total hos Allah subhanaw taala loves that you accept his concessions, and the narration of remind him of love the same way that he loves, that you avoid the things that are acts of disobedience to him. Allah loves that you accept his gifts. Allah loves that you take the ease that he's given to you. He loves that you take his concessions, and another narration, the way that he loves that you take the harder things, the more difficult things, the things that have an inherent

00:01:31--> 00:02:08

level of struggle and burden in them. Allah loves that you take advantage of the things that he's made easy for you. So for example, in Ramadan, Allah doesn't want you to torture yourself. If a person is traveling and difficult in their travel, then Allah loves that a person breaks their fast because Allah has given a gift to the one who's traveling, that they take advantage of that that they don't have to fast that day. So Allah doesn't want you to hurt yourself and travel. The Prophet peace be upon him, saw two groups of companions and they said the reward belongs to those who broke their fast and travel because they took the gift of Allah subhanaw taala if people are traveling, do

00:02:08--> 00:02:42

they pray cost them? Do they shorten their prayer? Or do they pray the full length and this is actually the context of the Hadith at least in one of the narrations that the Prophet peace be upon and taught us that we should pray the shortened prayers when we travel, that it's actually more rewardable to pray the shortened prayers when we travel because we're following the Sunnah of the Prophet slice Allah in accepting a concession from a loss Bannatyne accepting a gift from Allah subhanaw taala when we break our fast the Prophet peace be upon him, told us that the most beloved of those to Allah subhanaw taala haven't bought a BA de la la the most beloved of those of my

00:02:42--> 00:03:19

servants to me are those who break their fast the quickest, Allah doesn't want you to delay your breaking your fast because maybe if I give it a few extra minutes, I'll torture myself. No, Allah wants you at the time of Muslim as soon as Muslim comes in, to go ahead and to eat your date to drink your sips of water and to break your fast. Allah wants you to delay your suhoor until the time of fudger until the time when so hood is no longer acceptable because that shows that you are taking advantage of the gifts that are lost patterns Allah has given to you. You have a Lord that loves to be generous. Remember that we're going to be saying in the last 10 nights of Ramadan or we have been

00:03:19--> 00:03:59

saying in the last 10 nights of Ramadan, Allah inna Cafu and carry him on to humble alpha five one that Oh Allah, you are forgiving and generous. You love to forgive so forgive us. You love to forgive so forgive us and the Prophet sighs I'm tied that to his generosity as well. So just as a loss of Hannah Montana loves to forgive you. Allah loves to be generous with you. Allah loves that you accept his gifts when he gives them to you. This does not mean taking the rasa in fatwa, which is to take the easiest festival all the time. This means that when there is something that is an ease that is embedded within the legislation embedded within the Shetty are embedded within fifth

00:03:59--> 00:04:35

and embedded within our worship, that we take that and we thank Allah subhanaw taala for it and that is an expression of gratitude to Allah in and of itself. And Allah subhana wa tada loves to pardon he loves to forgive, he loves to make things easy for us. You read the law, what do you have fever ankrum Allah says in the Quran, that he wants to lighten the burden upon you, you read the law become a nurse Well, are you ready to become a nurse Allah desires for you ease, not hardship, and that actually came that I have which we run this with in Buffalo came in the capacity of a lamb making the concession for the sick person and the traveling person to not fast. So don't hurt

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

yourself and say that it's for Allah subhanaw taala take the ease that Allah has given to you thank Allah for it. And that's the most rewarding thing that you can possibly do with the Lord that loves to forgive a Lord that loves to be generous. And the Lord that loves that you accept his gifts. May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah make us amongst those people that attain His forgiveness that are recipients of his gifts in this life and in the Hereafter a llama

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

I mean, just knock them off. I know what's going on.
