00:00:02--> 00:00:05

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:10--> 00:00:11

In Al Hamdulillah.

00:00:16--> 00:00:23

Villa de unfussy now means a man Melina Maria de La, La La

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

La

00:00:30--> 00:00:31

ilaha illallah

00:00:34--> 00:00:36

wa shadow Mohammedan

00:00:37--> 00:00:39

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:00:41--> 00:00:42

in

00:00:47--> 00:00:49

Mohammed bin Salman Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

akula coolabah Allah.

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

Allah.

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

Allah has

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

the brothers and sisters

00:01:14--> 00:01:18

after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away.

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

And 80 years

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

after he dropped

00:01:25--> 00:01:26

one of the

00:01:27--> 00:01:28

by the name of

00:01:30--> 00:01:30

Allah

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

went to Al Majid al Qaeda

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

in Damascus.

00:01:39--> 00:01:47

And he went inside the masjid. And he said, I saw a man sitting in the front, surrounded by people.

00:01:48--> 00:01:51

And he described him as a very smiling man.

00:01:53--> 00:02:02

And people will ask questions. So he said, I came close. And I asked the people who is this? And they said, this is why that new job and

00:02:06--> 00:02:11

they said, I came the following day, early morning for Serato.

00:02:12--> 00:02:18

And I thought I would be the first one. But then I saw someone next to them.

00:02:21--> 00:02:25

And I came close to him. And I waited for him to finish the salon.

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

And then it was what I

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

did. I said to him, are you and

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

he said yes.

00:02:39--> 00:02:40

Then I said to him,

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

I love you for the sake of Allah.

00:02:47--> 00:02:47

So I

00:02:50--> 00:02:54

took him by the hand and he drove him closer to him. And he said,

00:02:56--> 00:02:57

he love

00:02:59--> 00:03:03

you. Do you really love me? Only for the sake of Allah

00:03:04--> 00:03:18

sakala with recent Hola, Nina. Yes. I love you only for the sake of Allah. He said the reason I'm asking you is because I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with my own ears saying

00:03:24--> 00:03:34

I heard him saying that Allah subhanaw taala makes an obligation in himself to love those who love each other for his sake.

00:03:41--> 00:03:51

It's easy. When you look across history, you'll find that so many people claimed that they love Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:03:54--> 00:03:56

Yet it's only Allah subhanaw taala

00:03:58--> 00:04:02

who decides whether they're truthful in the love or not?

00:04:04--> 00:04:12

And this is why we find in the Quran. When he recites every day. There are lots of panel data.

00:04:14--> 00:04:20

We asked us to ask him for guiding us to the straight path. He said after that.

00:04:22--> 00:04:23

When I

00:04:25--> 00:04:28

was angry with the people of Israel,

00:04:29--> 00:04:31

they claim that they love Allah.

00:04:33--> 00:04:43

It's because they have the knowledge that they didn't act upon that knowledge. This is why Allah subhanaw taala is angry with them, regardless if they claim they're not.

00:04:44--> 00:04:51

Because if we love Allah, we have to submit to Him and we have to take the knowledge into action.

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

Those of us throwing knife, why? Because the worst of the human

00:05:03--> 00:05:09

They are ignorant and their ignorance led them to shift to associate partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:05:11--> 00:05:20

And they claim also that they love Allah. In fact, not only that they claim that they love Allah, they also claimed that Allah loves them

00:05:21--> 00:05:23

and return the Koran. They said

00:05:26--> 00:05:31

we are the sons of Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala loves us.

00:05:33--> 00:05:39

And so many Muslims today they do the same thing. Many of them are ignorant.

00:05:40--> 00:05:52

And many of them have the knowledge but they don't act upon the knowledge. So let's stay away from this. For a moment. We need to seek knowledge. If we know we have to put our knowledge into action.

00:05:56--> 00:05:58

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:06:00--> 00:06:02

told us through the Quran

00:06:03--> 00:06:05

there are lots of Hallo Donna

00:06:07--> 00:06:12

mentioned in the Quran, that he loves certain people.

00:06:15--> 00:06:18

So the question for today

00:06:19--> 00:06:22

is does a lot of us

00:06:23--> 00:06:42

it's easy to claim the will of Allah subhanaw taala so there's a lot of us and if Allah subhanaw taala loves all of us what happens? And then for the second part we're gonna be talking about what are the means that I should take so that I can gain and guarantee the love of Allah subhanaw taala

00:06:43--> 00:06:46

so Allah subhanaw taala told us in the Quran

00:06:48--> 00:06:52

that we love someone so much, if you read

00:06:55--> 00:07:02

so number four, number one to five, Allah subhanho wa Taala stated that

00:07:11--> 00:07:14

as one of the closest of creation to him,

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

why,

00:07:17--> 00:07:18

because of

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

Giotto submission to Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:25--> 00:07:29

tests and he proved by his actions that he loved Allah.

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

So Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

also Allah subhana wa tada

00:07:44--> 00:07:45

in the Quran,

00:07:46--> 00:07:48

praising Allah.

00:07:50--> 00:07:53

Allah subhana wa tada says

00:07:54--> 00:07:55

that he has a character

00:07:57--> 00:07:58

that made the most

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

loving,

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

said,

00:08:06--> 00:08:10

we found him to be patient. So now praise them he said,

00:08:12--> 00:08:16

What a beautiful servant of Allah subhanaw taala. Again

00:08:19--> 00:08:23

shows through his character, that he accepts the color of Allah.

00:08:24--> 00:08:31

So he showed love to Allah, by accepting whatever happens in his life, through patience.

00:08:32--> 00:08:34

And this is a lesson for all of us.

00:08:37--> 00:08:47

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as narrated Muslim, he said, there was a man who traveled all the way from his own town

00:08:49--> 00:08:51

to visit a brother

00:08:53--> 00:08:59

in Islam, and Allah subhanaw taala sent an angel in the form of a man.

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

And when he was

00:09:04--> 00:09:08

leaving his town, he stopped him. He said, Where are you going?

00:09:09--> 00:09:12

To visit my brother so and so? He said,

00:09:14--> 00:09:19

Is it because of kinship? Is he one of your relatives? He said, No.

00:09:23--> 00:09:28

Is there business between you and him? He said, No. So why are you visiting him?

00:09:29--> 00:09:30

He said

00:09:32--> 00:09:38

so because I love them for the sake of Allah. So the engine in the form of a man told that man

00:09:39--> 00:09:48

I'm a messenger from Allah subhanaw taala to inform you that Allah because of your love, to your brother in Islam,

00:09:54--> 00:09:58

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when they teach you from the Quran.

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

He is

00:10:06--> 00:10:08

coming with some food or drink tea.

00:10:10--> 00:10:11

So please

00:10:12--> 00:10:15

inform Allah subhana wa tada

00:10:20--> 00:10:35

Allah subhanho wa Taala in his glory and majesty is sending Salaam to a woman. Why? Think about this, she was the best wife. And that's what we need to learn today.

00:10:36--> 00:10:37

How to value marriage

00:10:39--> 00:10:57

and how to stand their institution of marriage and how to be an outstanding wife. Because this could be a way to gender and how to be an outstanding husband, because this could be your way to gentlemen. And this is why I'm here this weekend to teach a seminar about marriage.

00:10:59--> 00:10:59

So

00:11:03--> 00:11:04

here's Khadija

00:11:06--> 00:11:10

coming to you with some food or drink.

00:11:11--> 00:11:19

So, tell her that Allah subhanaw taala is sending hair salon and extend my salon to her to give her the glass

00:11:22--> 00:11:25

is promising her a palace in Geneva

00:11:31--> 00:11:32

promising

00:11:35--> 00:11:37

the possible loss of

00:11:39--> 00:11:41

a palace that smooth over

00:11:42--> 00:11:47

and there is no noise in that palace. No there will be any fatigue.

00:11:51--> 00:11:58

These are examples of people that Allah subhanaw taala love. So what happens the brothers and sisters

00:12:02--> 00:12:05

are beloved the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us and Muslim

00:12:07--> 00:12:10

someone he calls up on gibreel

00:12:16--> 00:12:20

I love my Southern soul so so love them or love her.

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

And jabril loves that person.

00:12:27--> 00:12:28

Then jabril would call

00:12:30--> 00:12:38

and he would say he loves his servants. So so but he commands the engines by saying love him.

00:12:41--> 00:12:43

And then the third question

00:12:47--> 00:12:54

then everyone in Earth would love that person. So if you see someone loved by people on earth,

00:12:56--> 00:12:58

that the angels love him that

00:12:59--> 00:13:00

loves him.

00:13:01--> 00:13:02

tala loves him.

00:13:04--> 00:13:05

And vice versa.

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

For Love doesn't like

00:13:09--> 00:13:15

a lot goes up and up. And he tells, and he tells them the same thing. I hate

00:13:19--> 00:13:26

to hate. And then jabril comes up on the engines, and informs them to hate him. And then some

00:13:28--> 00:13:39

people hate him on earth. And if you see somebody like this, it's a sign that the agent doesn't like him that jabril doesn't like him. Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't like him.

00:13:40--> 00:13:47

So we all need a lot of data. And we need to ask ourselves this question before I conclude the first.

00:13:49--> 00:13:57

It's not that we claim that we are the most important question. In fact, the most important question is this.

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

Lovely and you

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

think about this.

00:14:07--> 00:14:11

And hamdulillah he was allotted wassalam and Allah, Allah de la Stouffer.

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:14:38--> 00:14:40

Two brothers and sisters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:14:42--> 00:14:43

was sitting with the Sahaba one day

00:14:44--> 00:14:53

and proceeded to kill his grandson. So the process of Stalin killed him and he raised him and he said

00:14:56--> 00:14:57

Allah will love him.

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

closer to Allah subhana wa tada by loving all the household,

00:15:06--> 00:15:09

including a castle and everyone in his family.

00:15:11--> 00:15:19

So think about this, loving the process of loving his family is a way to the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:15:20--> 00:15:30

And this is what I'm going to share with you three tips, how to go at Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is taken from an essay written by

00:15:35--> 00:15:36

first,

00:15:37--> 00:15:38

we all know

00:15:39--> 00:15:44

according to the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim, that Allah subhana wa Taala every single night,

00:15:46--> 00:15:49

during the third portion of the night, which is known as

00:15:51--> 00:15:54

the last portion of the night, he comes down to summarize

00:15:56--> 00:16:04

in a way that benefits him suppiler with data and extensive data that is asking us, is there anyone

00:16:05--> 00:16:08

who asks me for something and give it to him or her

00:16:09--> 00:16:11

or ask me for forgiveness that I'll forgive them

00:16:13--> 00:16:15

to make, ask me for anything I will give it to him

00:16:17--> 00:16:24

to take advantage of that time, every single night to draw closer to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:16:25--> 00:16:28

Who is in need? Who is a nominee?

00:16:30--> 00:16:33

Who is a solid means

00:16:40--> 00:16:45

of his creation, but all of us need him and despite that, he comes down to us

00:16:46--> 00:16:48

asking if we need him.

00:16:49--> 00:16:55

What should we do? Think about this. Next, Allah subhana wa tada

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

loves you.

00:17:01--> 00:17:01

If you remember,

00:17:02--> 00:17:06

Allah subhanho wa Taala will always be with you. If you remember him.

00:17:08--> 00:17:08

He says in

00:17:12--> 00:17:23

the company of Allah subhanaw taala every Muslim Salah says I am with my servant, as long as he or she remembers me. Listen to Allah subhanaw taala

00:17:24--> 00:17:26

so number two, number one, five to

00:17:32--> 00:17:34

remember me and I will remember you

00:17:37--> 00:17:41

remembering all of us, because we're sitting in his house, remembering him

00:17:45--> 00:17:46

to be remembered by Allah subhanaw taala

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

but think about this

00:17:51--> 00:17:52

tip number three.

00:17:54--> 00:17:55

The Quran

00:17:57--> 00:18:06

is the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is the best way to connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala and you increase your level, so he will love you.

00:18:08--> 00:18:18

And we need to read the Koran, understanding the Quran. So we cannot play the Quran as a way of life. That Allah subhana wa tada tells us

00:18:42--> 00:18:43

because they stay away from

00:18:48--> 00:18:49

Allah subhanaw taala

00:19:03--> 00:19:04

for the believers

00:19:07--> 00:19:13

will humble because of the revelation that came down to them from Allah.

00:19:15--> 00:19:16

The word of truth.

00:19:18--> 00:19:22

Allah subhanaw taala said if this was to be revealed

00:19:26--> 00:19:28

what happened to our hearts

00:19:46--> 00:19:47

Next

00:19:49--> 00:19:53

we need to sit with those will of Allah subhanaw taala

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

we need to choose our company. We have got firms because they will remind us about

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

When Allah subhanaw taala will love us. And there is nothing that can testify to what I'm saying. Except the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala.

00:20:10--> 00:20:14

So number at number 22, Allah mentioned

00:20:16--> 00:20:17

simply because of the good company

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

accompany the city to

00:20:23--> 00:20:28

keep the company of young people who love their people because they will do.

00:20:29--> 00:20:32

So I mentioned the dog many times

00:20:34--> 00:20:35

an animal,

00:20:38--> 00:20:39

Sir,

00:20:48--> 00:20:54

how many times in fact, even the way the dog was sitting in front of the cave,

00:20:58--> 00:21:02

what's the value of a dog, but it was

00:21:03--> 00:21:05

because of the good company.

00:21:06--> 00:21:11

So you need to choose it. Because they will remind you of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Next.

00:21:13--> 00:21:16

We need brothers and sisters also,

00:21:17--> 00:21:18

to love

00:21:19--> 00:21:20

and be ready for meeting

00:21:26--> 00:21:27

the man.

00:21:30--> 00:21:40

Whoever loves to meet you the law allows us to meet with them. And what's the meaning of meeting when you die? That's the end of your life. There's no second chance. So are you ready to meet

00:21:43--> 00:21:48

people who will be ready for that meeting, they will prepare themselves with good deeds

00:21:50--> 00:21:51

with fear of a loss of power,

00:21:52--> 00:21:54

who stay away from sitting.

00:21:56--> 00:21:57

Another tip

00:21:58--> 00:22:12

we need to stay away from any barrier between us and coming closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the main thing that makes you away from Allah subhanho wa Taala that will distance distance you from

00:22:13--> 00:22:19

committing sins. So stay away from sinning and if you do, go back and repent.

00:22:28--> 00:22:39

I said to them, seek Allah forgiveness alone forgive you all the time, the door is open 24 seven, regardless of how many sins have been committed. Next,

00:22:42--> 00:22:43

we need to put

00:22:44--> 00:22:47

in front of us. We need to follow a similar

00:22:48--> 00:22:56

we need to love him more than we love ourselves, our own families and everyone on Earth.

00:22:58--> 00:23:09

Because when he was trying to call the people of Israel to Islam, what did they say to them? This is just don't worry about us. We love Allah.

00:23:11--> 00:23:13

But Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:23:16--> 00:23:16

angry.

00:23:17--> 00:23:21

So number three, number 21. Allah subhanaw taala said

00:23:28--> 00:23:29

you claim

00:23:32--> 00:23:32

to be

00:23:38--> 00:23:40

the result, what's the outcome

00:23:44--> 00:23:44

of you?

00:23:47--> 00:23:48

forgive your sins

00:23:51--> 00:23:54

is the way to the love of Allah subhanaw taala and the forgiveness of sins.

00:23:56--> 00:23:56

Another thing

00:23:58--> 00:23:58

we need to study

00:24:01--> 00:24:03

the names and attributes of Allah Subhana

00:24:05--> 00:24:07

Allah subhanaw taala is merciful.

00:24:09--> 00:24:13

You will never lose hope in Allah when you commit a sin so go back to him.

00:24:14--> 00:24:19

But in the meantime, don't quote one and live the next hour because people always will say

00:24:31--> 00:24:33

forgiving, but they stop there

00:24:35--> 00:24:36

is

00:24:38--> 00:24:40

a severe punishment continuing.

00:24:49--> 00:24:52

Also known as punishment, so we stay away from sending

00:24:53--> 00:24:58

Allah subhanaw taala is a semi serious stay away from saying anything that he can hear you

00:25:02--> 00:25:09

He will see you whether you are in the basement, whether it's dark or whether it's light, she was telling from selling him. So one of

00:25:10--> 00:25:13

the names and attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:25:14--> 00:25:25

developed good characters, because when you develop a good character, it will become your own character. When you get used to something, it will be your own character. And one character the lesson

00:25:26--> 00:25:28

is patience, as we mentioned about you.

00:25:30--> 00:25:34

In fact, Allah stated in the Quran, if you read

00:25:37--> 00:25:41

for six, Allah subhanho wa Taala confirm that he loves those who are patient.

00:25:47--> 00:26:00

Indeed, Allah loves those who are patient, we go through a lot of our life. Remember, we believe in the power of Allah, whatever happens in our life is the best for us. last tip, dear brothers and sisters, before I conclude, is

00:26:04--> 00:26:07

we need to reflect on this hadith.

00:26:08--> 00:26:10

What Allah subhanaw taala said in the book

00:26:12--> 00:26:17

that he doesn't like anything from us, he doesn't expect anything from us, except doing

00:26:18--> 00:26:18

what he

00:26:27--> 00:26:29

will consistently continue

00:26:31--> 00:26:46

to draw closer to me because he wants my love through the wife through extra acts of worship, like praying the right prayers, like fasting Monday and Thursday, like giving charity, beyond giving the cat

00:26:49--> 00:26:49

until I love her

00:26:51--> 00:26:51

law

00:26:53--> 00:27:00

is another means to the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So in conclusion, the brothers and sisters, let's not claim that

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

because the poet says

00:27:08--> 00:27:12

it's amazing. How come that you claim that you love

00:27:13--> 00:27:13

him?

00:27:18--> 00:27:23

If you take this as an analogy, doesn't make any sense.

00:27:27--> 00:27:31

If you're truthful in your claim that you love them, you should submit to Him and OBEY Him.

00:27:35--> 00:27:39

If a person claims that he loves someone, they would obey Him.

00:27:40--> 00:27:44

So let's obey Allah subhanaw taala and so we can deserve his love. Allah.

00:27:49--> 00:27:50

Allah.

00:27:52--> 00:27:54

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah,

00:28:00--> 00:28:00

Allah,

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

whatever you

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

want in the forest

00:28:51--> 00:28:52
