Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu lillahi in the stain or salat wa salam O Allah see you now have you been on Mohammed remember with your rahmatan nila Island mean Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My respective brothers and sisters again we are here in one of the nights of Ramadan and one of the few remaining right nights of Ramadan as time is passing by very quickly and we are somehow a lot almost a week or less away from the end of Ramadan melas pantalla except from us and from you the good deeds and indeed we have to as we are
finishing this month we have is important for us to look at some of the things that we have done over this month and where we have fallen short we should try to mend that inshallah, because this is the summary of the month and it's very important to put that extra effort and even if you you know do a little bit more trying to iron out the creases maybe that you haven't quite managed to fulfill in your a bad and so on.
And one thing I want to talk to you about is what can we gain what is the greatest conclusion that we can get from Rama vine and as we mentioned the other day a beautiful Hadith of the old Ali Salaam as mentioned by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in this Tao le Salam was asking Allah for his love Allah humaine nice look at her back. Oh Allah, I asked you for your love. And this is, this is the topic of today's reminder, the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if we can try to at least leave Ramadan hopefully with that kind of feeling that we are attaining the love of Allah only we have, that's one of the best things that we have attained and Subhanallah great achievement, to
have achieved the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala in this blessed time, the the prophets of ally Selim told us that one of the greatest things that actually allows a person to feel and taste the sweetness of a man is when you have the you love Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you love them more than anything else. That kind of love that if you achieve in your life will be such a great achievement to have come out
from the dunya because having that love will mean that you are in a great station in a great position. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala has told us in the Quran, and indeed in a hadith some of the things that if we were to do then he would love us so he mentioned in the Quran that Allah loves Allah Marcin in his he said, he mentioned that Allah loves a Siberian, those who have a sand those who have Saba, he loves the matahari. And those who seek purification, whether its internal and external, or both. Allah Subhana Allah loves the good deeds and loves the actions that are done continuously. Allah Subhana Allah loves that when a person does good deeds, he does them to the
best. And so on so forth, we can read so many aspects in the Quran and the Hadith, which tell us about the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if we can work
in any hour, if you like the summary,
the pinnacle of our a badda an hour, turning to Allah subhanaw taala is to achieve that kind of connection. It would be such a great achievement to have left Ramadan with such a great thing.
How do we get this love? Well, first of all, it's love, like many other actions is based in the heart. It's one of the actions of the heart, man blue. And therefore it is about how do we
can consciously connect to our last panel.
And without doubt, the greatest means to this is by knowing a law. The more that you know a law, the more that you know his names, his attributes, who he is what he has done, his actions that will enable you to become closer to Allah Subhana Allah.
So Allah has the Beautiful Names. He has the beautiful attributes, how much of those names Do you know and I don't mean just here knowing in terms of
memorization, but how much do you actually know and understand how much of those names actually mean to you in your life? Secondly, knowing a loss pantalla through his actions and what he has done,
we know our loss. pantalla is the creator, we know his or Rosa is the one who's given, but the more you search and look into the creation of a law, the more that will give you a firmer yaqeen a firmer belief in a loss pattern and hence, reach to his love, when you see the diversity of the creation, you know, see all these beautiful creation of the last fantatic the you know, the 1000s of varieties of flowers and fruits and you know, the 1000s of species of insects and of, you know, even sub sub categories of insects, and how am I if that should get you closer to a loss. So, with the first aspect, which is knowing the names or loss pantile I advise you to listen to some of the recordings
and videos about this chef Yasser Calvi has a very nice series which is available on YouTube, which goes through the names of Allah, I think there are about 20 minutes each one and he's got a very Mashallah nice style, academic, very professional, try and look it up and maybe listen to something on a daily basis. And here, this is going to extend outside on my mind as well, you're going to listen, as we mentioned before, don't don't spend all your nights watching videos, but maybe one video here, one video there. And gradually, you are building that, that love to a loss of Hannah Tyler, when you know that allies, man or Rahim, I was a semi ally, all these names come and play
into your life. Secondly, with regards to the creation of last pantalla, you will know this by looking at documentaries watching videos, which show you the creation of last pantalla I was reading one small clip from
a person who, who used to be a Muslim, but then he became
And he was saying
after he'd become this, and then realizing that actually atheism doesn't make sense.
He was a scientist. And he was saying the reason why I came back to Islam is because I was saying in my you know, science lab in the science lab that I'm working with all this advanced technology, you know, you got these micro puppets which are pets, as which you know, can take out like small amounts of liquid, very finely made, you know, this fine glass etc, those microscopes, those, and even now electronic microscopes and all this advanced technology. So with all this technology that we have, we could never, never put together something like a DNA molecule impossible for with all this data with all the advancement of the labs. So are you then trying to tell me this way says, Are you then
trying to tell me that
some molecules in in a pool some way or some water, they could came up with this DNA structure, you know, all by themselves? It's just it's just impossible? And how can I we are now without advanced, we consider ourselves to be the top of the chain of all creations, you know, without advanced intelligent intelligence and our intelligent intellectual and rational
properties and qualities. And we couldn't do that. And you saying that some molecules by themselves will have no brain have no mind? No eyes? No. And you came up with this. So I'm just saying yes, as an example. And so that actually led him back to Islam. And that's just an example. So the more you look into the creation of a law, the more you will realize and that gives you that connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Thirdly, when you look at
any when you read, and you study, the Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala that also gives you that extra connection because you can, that book, as we mentioned before, is the message that's directed to from a loss pattern. reading that book, connecting to your understanding, will increase your love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and get you more connected because what is that love that love is that connection. The more you are connected, the more you can understand Allah, tala, the more you will achieve that greatness in sha Allah, tala and I think it's important for us to continue to engage, you know, engage with the last time
With his actions with his, you know there has to be that two way process. You call on to Allah subhanho wa Taala you remember a law you are thinking about Allah Subhana Allah and that in sha Allah will give you more and more love it's like you know when you are concerned about somebody and you love somebody from the humans you're always thinking about them you're thinking what they're doing now what could they be you know even what they're eating What are they drinking What are they watching whether you know you're always thinking about them, but a loss pantalla has the the higher example amongst anyone else a loss of Hannah Dan if if a lot is really has a place in your heart,
then you will be thinking about a loss paddle. How would How would this action please a law? What kind of connection Do I have with a loss of Hannah, Darla? and so on? so forth? So we asked her last night that as we made that door is there a llama is a Luca hubback asking Allah Subhana Allah seeking it, inshallah will be a better way to attaining it with the will of Allah
