00:00:00--> 00:00:08

And I just want to end with one thing dear brothers and sisters and I want you to think about this a lot as Odell says in the Quran,

00:00:09--> 00:00:13

little Levine accent listener was the,

00:00:14--> 00:00:22

for those who have a son is a listener, those who excel they will have an excellent reward and more.

00:00:24--> 00:00:32

Now in krisna, is an agenda. And we already mentioned here what Allah subhanaw taala mentioned, what he has prepared for us in terms of an agenda.

00:00:33--> 00:00:50

And that it's something that's not befitting to be given in this dunya because if it's given in this dunya then it won't fit. And if it's given in this dunya then it won't last. And dear brothers and sisters will Sahaba asks us a loss A lot of us.

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

We understand this now. We understand that Allah will give us an agenda. What's more than Jenna,

00:01:01--> 00:01:11

what could possibly be more than 10 Now, what is was the other and what did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say?

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

And Navarro EDA watch

00:01:16--> 00:01:22

another Oh Isla de la to stare at the face of Allah.

00:01:24--> 00:01:26

The one who you were working for the whole time.

00:01:28--> 00:02:02

The one who when you used to come to Salah as the brother was mentioning the SEC was mentioning you were coming because Robin Mushtaq heart that was missing him. Looking forward to that conversation, that dialogue with Allah. The one who was that you were remembering when anyone was harming you, you would say and hamdulillah Allah will have something better. The one who when any hardship struck you, you remembered him and you said in 911, a Roger on we belong to Him and to Him we returned anyway.

00:02:03--> 00:02:10

That one a loss pattern Allah to Allah getting a chance to stare at his face.

00:02:12--> 00:02:15

And some people get to stare at him and agenda every day.

00:02:16--> 00:02:20

Some people have it twice a day. Some people have it once a week,

00:02:21--> 00:02:26

getting a chance to consistently Look at him subhanho wa Taala

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

because you love him.

00:02:29--> 00:02:48

And that love that you had for him. It drove you. Everyone has something that drives them. Everyone has something that gets them out of bed every morning. Everyone has something that drives them to work and gets them through the day. The believer has pursuing the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:02:49--> 00:03:06

And even if I listened very closely to this, the mentality of the moisten is as such, even if a law did not have a prepared for us, or a Hellfire from which we seek refuge in Him.

00:03:08--> 00:03:10

You still would not this obey Allah.

00:03:11--> 00:03:22

You would still love him. And that would still be enough of a driving force as automotive nikopol what are the Allah tala I know sad about sohei but roaming about the Allahu taala.

00:03:24--> 00:03:27

Even if there was no Heaven or Hell,

00:03:28--> 00:04:00

even if Allah subhanaw taala did not prohibit disobedience, let me honestly, he would never be able to disobey Allah subhanaw taala because that's how intense His love is for him. I want you to think dear brothers and sisters, the next time you're in a situation, the next time you're in a gathering, the next time you think about who you are, the next time you think about the hadith of an aura of being strange. Ask yourself, are you even ascending amongst your family members?

00:04:01--> 00:04:44

Are you even the person in your family? Or are you at a level less than your parents, less than your brothers and sisters, you need to ascend and set a different standard for yourself. Because you know what happens? We get divided into these cliques, you have the religious crowd, you have the secular crowd, you have the crowd that's in between. They'll perform all the rituals and things of that sort. But whenever there's a real inconvenience in life, they'll go back to the secularism and we belong to one of these crowds. Somehow you get fit into a crowd. Don't worry about the crowd. Think about Allah subhanho wa Taala and if you are concerned with what Allah thinks of you,

00:04:45--> 00:04:54

then you won't care what other people think of you and that will drive you Have any of you ever heard of Maslow's hierarchy of needs? Raise your hand if you have

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

what is the top level of Maslow's hierarchy of needs

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

Somebody told me

00:05:04--> 00:05:06

self actualization

00:05:07--> 00:05:39

self actualization. You know what the definition of self actualization is? that the person becomes independent of the opinion of others panela the person has security, a sense of security, self esteem, confidence, self actualization, realizing that they don't need to worry about what other people think of them. They've set new standards for themselves. They have a mission. They have a vision.

00:05:41--> 00:05:54

And what do we know from soufiane? Or the alotau? What did he say? Either I saw him in kellwood. Do calculo Hainan for kulula, de Falco to rob to draw up.

00:05:56--> 00:06:09

If you if I have your love, Oh Allah, then everything else becomes worthless. Because everything that's on top of this dirt is in and of itself, dirt.

00:06:10--> 00:06:45

If I have your approval, if I have your love, if I have your standard, if I have your guarantee, and if I have your pleasure, your loved one. I don't care about anything else. The next time you find yourself in a fundraiser and you find yourself that you know I'm thinking about well, I don't have too much money I'm struggling, give, give to show a loss of Hannah, what's Allah? That I'm only worried about what you think of me? The next time someone offends you or insults you?

00:06:47--> 00:06:53

And everyone expects you to respond. Swallow your anger and smile in their face and say, Did

00:06:55--> 00:06:57

you have any advice? Salaam wa Alaykum

00:06:58--> 00:07:13

the next time someone takes a right from you. forego that right? Make draw for that person and say Oh Allah, I pardon that person in hopes that you would Pardon me. And the next time you go into your Salah,

00:07:14--> 00:08:05

make sure that the only one you're concerned about watching you is Allah Subhana which Allah and you visualize yourself standing in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala in a dialogue with Eliza. And with that dear brothers and sisters, we would achieve taqwa and we would achieve a son and we would achieve the Diwan of Allah subhana wa Tada. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant it to us. We ask a lot to love us. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us amongst those who love Him. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us amongst those upon whom he lavishes praise because you know what dear brothers and sisters right now, what is the loss of Hannah tada saying to the Metallica, Allah

00:08:05--> 00:08:12

saying to the angels that reported to him, said we found this mejlis we found this gathering of people remembering you

00:08:14--> 00:08:22

a loss of how not to Allah is saying if he loves us, yeah gibreel in the head Boolean

00:08:23--> 00:08:47

Algebra I love that person. So you love him too. So gibreel will love him. And jabril Allah, his salon will go and we'll call upon all of the inhabitants of the heavens and say in the law, you Hippo Fulani, Habu, Allah subhana wa tada loves this person. So you should all love him too for you hippo.

00:08:48--> 00:09:00

And so all of the inhabitants of the heavens love him. And as for the earth, the people of the earth the inhabitants of the earth are soulless I said I'm says for y'all that hola hola Cabo, for

00:09:01--> 00:09:43

the love of the people is placed in their hearts they start to love that person. A loss of Hannah to Allah allows it to descend upon them. And a loss of Hannah to add on when he sees this gathering inshallah to Allah. Allah, us the angels. What are they coming together for? Why are they here? What do they want? And Allah knows the answer. And it's just to remember you on a Friday night, when they could have been out partying, when they could have been out at some Tao at some social gathering when they could have been out here there. They chose to come and remember you. Allah Subhana. Allah says to the angels, bear witness that I have forgiven all of them.

00:09:45--> 00:09:47

I have forgiven all of them.

00:09:48--> 00:10:00

And the angels say that Yeah, Allah. There's that person amongst them who's only here because his family dragged them. There is that person who's there because you know what he wanted to go meet his friends, social gathering whatever. There's

00:10:00--> 00:10:26

That person that's there for some business connection something like that and what will allow the panel to either say he's forgiven to because no person accompanies such people or sits in such gatherings except that he would be forgiven. So we asked a lot to forgive us and make us from moistening a llama I mean, does that go below hate on yes whiny well Hawaii akula Cali harder was tougher lolly welcome was Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
