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

It's mercy.

00:00:13--> 00:00:14

Let's see

00:00:34--> 00:00:54

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah mothers and sisters and my dear viewers as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My name is Leah Rosie and I welcome you back into another episode of reflections of Ramadan. Today in sha Allah who tada we're going to talk about

00:00:55--> 00:00:56

love.

00:00:58--> 00:01:01

Love such a beautiful word, love.

00:01:03--> 00:01:13

But is it any type of love law? I'm going to talk about a special type of love. Love of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

Yes,

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

you love Allah.

00:01:19--> 00:01:20

Do you really love Allah?

00:01:22--> 00:01:29

Yeah, I am asking you. You're watching me, right? Yeah, I'm talking to you. Do you love Allah? Really? Really?

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

Really, really? How much you love?

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

More than anything else?

00:01:38--> 00:01:38

Really?

00:01:39--> 00:01:46

I'm sorry. You may think it's a silly question. My you know, you couldn't be telling me all your signature. What kind of question is that?

00:01:48--> 00:01:57

But I'm sorry, I just thought to ask is a lot more beloved to you than anything else like, then then is a lot more beloved to you than your own spouse?

00:01:58--> 00:02:01

Maybe, or you're not married about your children?

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

Or have children

00:02:04--> 00:02:07

more than your car? More than your money?

00:02:09--> 00:02:12

More than your business more than your parents

00:02:13--> 00:02:14

more than yourself?

00:02:16--> 00:02:17

Do you love a lot more than yourself?

00:02:20--> 00:02:33

I know it's very hard question here. No, do you love a lot more than anything else? Because everybody claims that they love law, right? Everybody claims even those who are not religiously committed. They claim that they love a law.

00:02:35--> 00:02:40

So we need to ask this question. What does it mean? Did you prefer your own time today?

00:02:43--> 00:02:46

Oh, did I hurt your feelings? I'm sorry.

00:02:48--> 00:02:51

Did you pray a shot on time today in the midget

00:02:53--> 00:02:54

family on time.

00:02:55--> 00:02:58

Did you wake up to do some pm a late night prayer?

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

How's your heart doing?

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

How's your relationship with Allah doing?

00:03:06--> 00:03:10

Is it okay? Yeah, yeah. Your relationship with Allah. How's it doing?

00:03:12--> 00:03:13

Is it good? hamdulillah

00:03:15--> 00:03:16

how's your heart?

00:03:18--> 00:03:25

Your heart is pumping, right? Is it saying Allah masala? The Islam?

00:03:26--> 00:03:26

What does it say?

00:03:27--> 00:03:35

What is it saying? money? Money? her? Her? Him? Him?

00:03:37--> 00:03:38

What's your heart state?

00:03:40--> 00:03:43

When you go to sleep, would you leave your heart?

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

Yeah. When you go to sleep, right?

00:03:49--> 00:03:52

Where do you leave your heart, your liver, your heart, your bank?

00:03:54--> 00:03:55

Or

00:03:56--> 00:03:59

is it would you love of Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

thinking about the greatness of Allah thinking about all the time the blessings of Allah has blessed you with?

00:04:06--> 00:04:09

Yeah, so these are the kinds of questions

00:04:10--> 00:04:12

love of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:15--> 00:04:21

because my brothers and sisters the sign of knowing Allah is to love him

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

Subhana

00:04:24--> 00:04:33

and the sign of of loving him is to give preference to anything over him subhanho wa Taala

00:04:35--> 00:04:38

so we give preference to Allah subhana wa jal over over anything.

00:04:39--> 00:04:47

The sign to know and Allah is to love him. And

00:04:48--> 00:04:53

the sign of loving Him is not to give preference to anything other than Allah subhana wa tada

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

and whoever prefers anything to Allah

00:05:01--> 00:05:24

Anything else Allah other than Allah subhanho wa Taala he has a diseased heart. As in Ramadan it has explained. If you see yourself giving preference to anything else other than Allah Jani, Allah as you know is not your top most priority, then koboko moderate. Then you have a sick heart, disease heart,

00:05:25--> 00:05:41

the three types of hearts as he explains, he says, Yeah, this is the first step of heart his heart filled with a lost consciousness, the field and the hub of Allah subhana wa The love of Allah subhanho wa Taala this type of heart

00:05:42--> 00:05:46

is purified with the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:05:49--> 00:05:59

And the second type of heart is a forsaken heart, Yanni dead heart, a heart stained with evils somehow and bad morals.

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

And then you have the third type of heart. Calvin married is a diseased heart.

00:06:08--> 00:06:12

A heart which is seduced by whims and desires.

00:06:13--> 00:06:15

So which type of heart do you have?

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

A sick heart

00:06:19--> 00:06:20

a diseased heart

00:06:22--> 00:06:23

a dead heart

00:06:25--> 00:06:27

or alive heart.

00:06:29--> 00:06:31

Live with the members of law.

00:06:32--> 00:06:36

Live with filled with the help and love of Allah

00:06:38--> 00:06:56

we've been ordered to love things like our wives and and and husbands and sons and children and fathers mothers and and Kindred Jason and our wealth and whatnot but should I would love to be equivalent to the love of Allah subhana wa tada

00:06:57--> 00:07:02

because Allah subhanho wa Taala since about the Toba by the laminar regime

00:07:03--> 00:07:05

in Ghana

00:07:07--> 00:07:09

call in Canada

00:07:11--> 00:07:18

Akuma is one Oh, ye one comma zero comma zero to come while Sheila to come

And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Then wait, Allah Subhana says, Then wait entered Allah brings about his decision.

00:08:34--> 00:08:43

We're not being ordered to love Yes, we can love them. But we should that love the love of Allah subhana wa tada should, should supersede anything else.

00:08:44--> 00:08:46

Because it is a law after all.

00:08:48--> 00:08:50

So the question is again,

00:08:51--> 00:08:54

so loving allies, it's something mandatory.

00:08:55--> 00:09:02

Is it something permissible? Is it something Yeah, and the sooner you choose, what is it?

00:09:05--> 00:09:15

Well, Allah subhanho wa Taala cinsault number 165 by the ob laminata Muslim woman see money coming down in la

wamena ness and amongst people who, who take Miyata from Indonesia granddad, who take others as rivals, with the worship of Allah subhana wa tada Well, let me know I shared the soap vanilla. So these people they take them and they love them. They take these rivals mean Daniela other than Allah and then they love them. Another lesson houses will let me know but those who believe I should have been in there. They have an intense love for Allah. Are you believer? Then you should have this

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

intense love for Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah.

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

Allah, Allah,

00:10:09--> 00:10:16

Allah Allah says, Allah who will coverton kulu wahida wa who will know

00:10:17--> 00:10:23

habibollah He says, The love of Allah Cheb in Arabic means love,

00:10:24--> 00:10:39

Allah, love of Allah is the, the strength of the heart. And it is the distance to the soul where who will know and it is the know, that radiant that Allah puts into your face.

00:10:41--> 00:10:48

Somebody beloved by Allah subhana wa Tada. So, how can I acquire the love of Allah?

00:10:50--> 00:10:54

million dollar question because it's, it's

00:10:56--> 00:10:59

it's easy to say that I love Allah, but Allah love you.

00:11:02--> 00:11:10

It is not the love but to be beloved by Allah, maybe this is what we should really think about here. How can I be beloved by Allah

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

habibollah How can I become happy will

00:11:17--> 00:11:32

be loved by Allah? Well, I'm going to share with you some points in short, low data elements that will help you acquire the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala you're ready, inshallah. Okay. Bismillah

00:11:34--> 00:11:38

number one, if you want Allah subhanho wa Taala to love you.

00:11:40--> 00:12:03

Number one, da wa you have to obey his commands if you want to love Allah subhanho wa Taala obey these commands, will earn you the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and obey his commands, Allah azza wa jal did not send down these commands to make us have this you know, harsh life.

00:12:06--> 00:12:15

The commands of Allah and the laws of Allah have been sent out that Allah will make things easy for us. Imagine if there were no laws.

00:12:16--> 00:12:34

Imagine if you were to live, let's say in New York or some or in London, wherever you are, and there were no laws. There were no no no no signs, no red lights, no green lights, no stop signs, no cameras. I know in London, every almost every intersection, you have a camera.

00:12:35--> 00:12:41

So imagine if there was no cameras, no signs nothing. It's your own law. Would that be like a chaos on earth?

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

So those are the universal laws.

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

those laws that you know, we live in accordance with some sort of laws, that there's some there be some sort of justice in this earth.

00:13:04--> 00:13:51

Alaska has sent down those laws that you know, we live in accordance with some sort of laws, that there's some there'll be some sort of justice in this earth, a green light meant so that you know, green light is for you to go red light is for you to stop you have a stop sign you have a yield sign. You know, these are signs you know, laws in this universe universal laws to make our lives easier. Likewise, Allah subhanho wa Taala says send them his commands these laws to be obeyed Subhanahu wa tada for you and I to have a successful life in this life here to become successful in this life of this world and also in the life of the hereafter. How can we acquire that through the

00:13:51--> 00:14:14

obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala but Allah subhana wa tada first and foremost, obey Allah orders have been his commands. Very simple, the Salah zecca, the siyam being good, staying away from Hara, staying away from forbidden stuff, very simple laws.

00:14:15--> 00:14:56

bar to law will earn you the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is taqwa, that feel of Allah, before you step you take and you look, is this halal? or haram? Is this permissible or not permissible? Because if it's permissible that you say, Bismillah, I'll do it not permissible. You stay back and you say no, I cannot do it. It's not permissible. Very simple. You may say when there's some fatawa Yes, I know this sounds that that will because that has become so easy today. You call one 803. Two it gives you if that's what you want. Sometimes you have to stuff the callback, as the profit person says, instead of the callback, a Mufti can give you a fatwa that goes

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

along with your whims and desires but inside of you, you know

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

Nothing is wrong.

00:15:02--> 00:15:09

You know enter in earning interest in the bank and the loan from a bank with with interest is wrong you know that inside of you Subhan Allah,

00:15:10--> 00:15:16

Allah, Allah has forbidden that from above the heavens, from above the heavens

00:15:17--> 00:15:19

above Riba. Can you tell me what I have a

00:15:22--> 00:15:23

callback?

00:15:25--> 00:15:55

I'm telling you a lie surgeon has given you a fatwa from above the heavens, Allah as the Day of Judgment, he would call upon those who used to deal with Riba with usury. And they would be told what the hat consider hat take your your weapon Poornima for your little, little Hannibal back, take your weapon. Why? So that you can fight your mode? How can you fight your mode? Because Allah has declared war on those who deal with Riba Would you agree?

00:15:57--> 00:16:04

Min Allah, Allah has declared harab war on those who deal with usury with interests and stuff.

00:16:05--> 00:16:09

Very simple obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala first and foremost

00:16:10--> 00:16:20

what line for me to eat? I would eat rocks and an earthen but I would not want to eat a morsel of thing from Hara,

00:16:21--> 00:16:24

a morsel of anything from Petra. Why?

00:16:26--> 00:17:07

The Prophet Mohammed Elisa to cillum says the head reported by Muslim when this man is raising his ensino Allahu Allahu Allah. But the Prophet says you know a man does the tire traveling saying Oh Allah, what am I making? And he says the perfect says Mecca woman, Hala Masha woman Hala Modi will have amnesia Bula he's driving you know, dusty, tired and then he raises his own might help me or not, but the permits is he is from HUD on he drinks from HUD on he does with HUD on with things that are prohibited. How can Allah answer the call from such a person who deals with haram? A female companion is to hold her husband every morning before he goes to work. And she's to tell him feed us

00:17:07--> 00:17:14

from Helen, don't feed us from harm. We can be the heat of hunger but we cannot bear the heat of fire.

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

Because he came to

00:17:18--> 00:17:20

me and then the Prophet told him Yes, sad

00:17:22--> 00:17:27

or sad, eat something I did with Helen, Allah who will answer your

00:17:29--> 00:17:33

obedience of Allah will earn you the love of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:17:34--> 00:17:46

And what goes along with the obedience of Allah? obedience of Rasulullah reviving the notion of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Nan de la sala

00:17:47--> 00:17:55

Really? I'm serious. You really love us? Don't do this to me and say Yes, I do. Yes if they really love Rasul Allah

00:17:56--> 00:18:04

because Allah used to love pmla Do you love family? So I used to love and you love

00:18:05--> 00:18:11

loves donations and giving charity to give charity. I used to love liquor you love

00:18:12--> 00:18:21

to love being you know kindness to people kindness to the orphans, kindness, the spouses, you love that? being good to people? kind to people

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

was

00:18:27--> 00:18:33

awesome. I didn't carry any evil, evil feeling towards anyone and it's not to say that we are such a pure heart. Do you love Rasulullah?

00:18:36--> 00:18:42

So to those who claim that they love Rasul Allah, what would they you know, allows you to put them in a test and Allah Subhana Allah says by the

00:18:44--> 00:19:00

column called inconjunct to hibou nama oni oni Yo, como la jolla. filicudi Nova como se say if you claim that you love Allah follow the footsteps of Rasul Allah, Allah shall love you.

00:19:02--> 00:19:09

Very simple. Say, if we claim that you love Allah, for Allah, Allah shall love you.

00:19:11--> 00:19:14

Follow us will lie in his ways, mimic his life and his toilet was

00:19:15--> 00:19:17

not only one day,

00:19:18--> 00:19:32

not only one day, if you know what I'm talking about these the day, so I'm gonna sit here and do some recitation of the Quran and do some odd car because this is the day of law, civil law. Law. That's every day

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

every day, not only one single day.

00:19:38--> 00:19:44

Awesome. I used to love playing solo on time in the masjid. Similar to fizzle. And

00:19:46--> 00:19:49

what are you? Yes, what are you doing?

00:19:52--> 00:19:55

Let me share with you a short story.

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

Some illustration of the Sahaba lovin us and the sun

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

Have yet in fact, I'm just going to use

00:20:05--> 00:20:08

one of his wives. Oh, Habiba.

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

Oh Habiba. She's the wife of the Prophet Mohammed. So Sarah,

00:20:15--> 00:20:33

her father, Abu sufian came to visit her. So he came in and he went to sit on the bed in you know of the Prophet Mohammed it was set up. And then what happened was Omar Habiba, she rushed, she rushed, and then she took the bedding of the sweater. She followed it.

00:20:35--> 00:20:36

And then

00:20:39--> 00:20:51

Abu sufian Carly lipset Oh, Habiba. I know of your father you love it very much. But whose won't be enough to you me of this bed in this small bed in here. All

00:20:52--> 00:21:03

of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. She says, Okay, my father, you're my father and I love you. Yes, you're my dad. But this is the bed None of us will enter emotionally contentious.

00:21:04--> 00:21:11

You're not a believer. I cannot have you sit on the bed universal law. Yes, I do love you. But what comes first?

00:21:12--> 00:21:16

A law also law comes first.

00:21:18--> 00:21:36

Even those non Muslims, people writing you know essays and articles about us a little less a little larger than 111 non Muslim who said if the Prophet Mohammed was to come here today, he would solve the all the problems of the entire world while he's drinking a cup of tea or a cup of coffee.

00:21:38--> 00:21:50

He says he has taught everything to the Muslims even how to how to enter the washroom. He has taught them everything even how to enter the washrooms now, the prophet of everything is salatu salam, Salam O Allah.

00:21:51--> 00:22:11

This is what it means to love Him is to mimic his children and his sort of freedom to divide his children and his love to see them to live in accordance to his ways and his salatu salam. This is what it means to love rasulillah not by just once a week or once a year, and to some gathering and let's celebrate Rasulullah

00:22:13--> 00:22:14

that's not what it means.

00:22:17--> 00:22:18

It's a way of life.

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

Loving nostalgia. It's a way of life.

00:22:23--> 00:22:30

So the second thing that will earn you the love of Allah subhana wa tada is the obedience of law. So the law

00:22:31--> 00:23:11

and reviving the son of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam and if you certainly surely honestly love him, you shall be able to drink from his hands on the day of the amateur Allahu Tada. You will drink from the hands of Law School of Law from this bass and called Alcazar a beautiful Besson as the Prophet describe the water where the by the water of this Bhasin is whiter than than milk and and sweeter than honey if you were to drink from it, you can never feel thirsty again. Some people will come and drink directly from the bathroom and there are others who will come and be called to drink from the hands of us.

00:23:13--> 00:23:14

Imagine

00:23:15--> 00:23:33

imagine your name is cold amongst so many other people and then your name is cold. Or overland or Mohammed or Fatima Oh, Khadija Come Come, come come here drink and you were to drink from the hands of versatile

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

not only from the Koto, but the hands of Rasulullah

00:23:39--> 00:23:40

he will tell you a good drink.

00:23:41--> 00:23:45

Not only drinking but you're drinking from the hands of the Prophet Muhammad Ali is upset

00:23:48--> 00:23:49

or the blessing

00:23:50--> 00:23:52

and there'll be some others who will come

00:23:53--> 00:23:58

to try to drink from that battle. And they will be blocked. They will be prevented.

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

And the Prophet would say they're from my people let them in let them in.

00:24:06--> 00:24:12

And then the caller would say no. You don't know what they have innovated after you will have gone jasola

00:24:14--> 00:24:17

you don't know what they have made up and innovated after they have gone yellow Salama

00:24:18--> 00:24:24

and the Prophet would say so cancer can take them take them. Take them take them. They're not from me.

00:24:27--> 00:24:28

I do my utmost to the convener.

00:24:30--> 00:24:32

Today I have perfected your religion.

00:24:33--> 00:24:38

There is no room for additions in the deen in the deen.

00:24:41--> 00:24:59

There is no room for innovations in the deen and that's what it means by loving Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mimicking the Rasulullah Lisa to center loving the South Sudan reviving the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam trying to be like like him like a father like him as a
