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

All

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

right.

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

Let's see.

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

Smell out.

00:00:38--> 00:00:41

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:42--> 00:00:50

I welcome you back into another episode of afflictions of Ramadan. We're still talking about how to earn the love of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:00:51--> 00:01:35

We have spoken so far about obedience of Allah will earn you the love of Allah subhana wa Tada. We have spoken about obedience of the Prophet Mohammed to them, meaning reviving the teachings of the Prophet Mohammed Salim will earn as the love of Allah subhana wa Tada. We also spoke about Tila was the institution of the end will earn you the love of Allah subhana wa tada we have spoken about also the vicar of Allah, which will also help you to love the members of Allah when earning the love of Allah Subhana Allah and we have spoken about and the weapons supererogatory prayers which will also earn you the love of Allah subhana wa tada meaning voluntary prayers.

00:01:36--> 00:01:41

So another element inshallah that will also help us to earn the love of Allah is

00:01:42--> 00:02:24

something quite simple, which is visiting one another, visiting one another will earn us the love of Allah. Yes, how? Well, the prophet Mohammed is set to set himself in such Muslim, but a man who was traveling to visit somebody in this other town, and he was met by someone who asked him, where are you going? So that man, as I said, I'm just going to the next town to visit so and so. And then the man asked him, do you have anything that you need from him is is why are you going to visit him? Is there anything you need from him? He says, No, the message No, I don't need nothing from him except that I love him for the sake of Allah, except that I love him for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:02:24--> 00:03:01

And then the other man says, Well, let me tell you, I'm an angel from the heavens, Allah Subhana, which Allah has sent me to tell you, that he loves you, as you love that man that you chose to go and visit recevied in LA for the sake of Allah, this is inside a Muslim, right? So visiting one another will earn you the love of Allah. When was the last time you visit somebody for the sake of Allah without needing nothing from him or wanting nothing from him, just because maybe you missed him, maybe that person was not there for sacrificial as it was the the the etiquettes as with the Sahaba, the companions of the Prophet Mohammed dallisa, to Sudan. You know, when when somebody does

00:03:01--> 00:03:11

not come from Asia, they said maybe this person is sick. And then if the same person does not show up for further, they would know that that person is definitely sick, they would go and visit him.

00:03:13--> 00:03:22

That was the teaching. That was the etiquette you know, at the time of the Prophet Mohammed between the notes on the work of the Sahaba of the companions of the Prophet Mohammed That is to say,

00:03:23--> 00:03:57

just visiting you know, picking up the phone, I know we're busy nowadays, but how about just to pick up the phone and then call your brother and ask about him or your sister and ask about her? How you doing? How you doing? Sister? Are you doing brother? Are you okay? I just didn't see you today in South Africa or Asia or I haven't seen you in quite some time or just taking you know the steps in the action to go and knock at the door and you know, and visit them. I know sometimes now people want to come and visit you and you know could be misinterpreted you know, because nobody comes in visitors nowadays except you know, whenever they need something when I'm talking about maybe you

00:03:57--> 00:04:16

know the majority, there's definitely some good cases you know, out there, but oftentimes when people call you on the phone or come to visit us, they would need something from you so Pamela, right. But here is you chose to go and visit them for what for the sake of Allah why because you love them for the sake of Allah that will earn you the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:04:18--> 00:04:24

loving to visit each other for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada will earn you the love of Allah.

00:04:25--> 00:04:44

Another thing that will earn you the love of Allah subhana wa tada is pmla the night prayer This is inside Muslim. The Prophet Mohammed Elisa to see them says that the most beloved Salah in the sight of Allah after the mandatory Salah is pmla is the night prayer, praying at night.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

You know, praying at night, you know, especially in the last hours of the night was by Allah subhanho wa Taala comes down in a way that befits His Majesty and he looks at those who pray. Men, you're stuck really afraid of life.

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

Many of the

00:05:03--> 00:05:15

men in the room yesterday Bella, who asked me I shall give him what he asked for who asked for forgiveness, I shall forgive him who supplicates me I shall grant his supplication in the last third of the night.

00:05:17--> 00:05:45

One of the most beautiful beloved Salah for the Prophet Mohammed dallisa to Sudan and the Sahaba these the love the perform the night prayer, it really substance The heart is one of the prayers that softens the heart is the night prayer. Allah subhana wa tada enlightens the face of those Subhana Allah who pray the night prayer, you see them you know them somehow that is a sign in their faces, you know, those who wake up and pray the night prayer.

00:05:46--> 00:05:54

If you have anything that you need from Allah Subhana Allah to either stand up and pray in the middle of the night and crying for Allah asking that's the best time to make

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

maybe half an hour an hour you know before so to

00:06:00--> 00:06:01

make it a habit

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

start with to look for work and then you just gradually you know go and then make it as the Prophet used to do you know, no more than 11 or 13 Nautica

00:06:13--> 00:06:24

you know, eight and then with windows so that's 11 aloka. But the trick is that the properties to pray are very longer cast. So here you can make long Sousou long, low core

00:06:25--> 00:06:29

beautiful, try it. The night prayer

00:06:30--> 00:06:44

will earn you the love of Allah subhana wa Tada. salata, lane, pm lane will earn you the love of Allah subhana wa tada a sub perseverance will earn you the love of Allah subhana wa tada

00:06:46--> 00:06:52

Allah hibou savarin Allah subhanho says that Allah loves those who steadfast, those who persevere.

00:06:53--> 00:07:06

Nam is one of the silver lining this universe to be tested to be trialed is a test from Allah subhana wa Tada. It's a it's a it's a it's in fact, one of the ways of Allah subhana wa Taala in this universe.

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

As Allah Subhana Allah says in the end of hesi banaswadi takakura m and o hoomin. Afternoon. What

00:07:15--> 00:07:20

do people will think that they will be left out without being trialed? We have trialed people before them.

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

And we shall put them under trial as well.

00:07:24--> 00:07:39

For the element of loneliness or the core element of KGB. So here you will differentiate between the truthful ones and those liars who claim that they are believers. And then when they hit by some calamity, they start cursing. So

00:07:40--> 00:07:45

perseverance Subbu patience. Yes.

00:07:47--> 00:07:48

inshallah, we'll it will come.

00:07:50--> 00:07:52

Whatever that you looking for insha Allah will come

00:07:53--> 00:07:57

in sha Allah hota Hana Yes, just keep up the faith.

00:07:58--> 00:08:07

Don't despair of the mercy of Allah and keep on asking him in sha Allah hota inshallah Yeah, and he he think that the sun will never come out.

00:08:09--> 00:08:17

You think that the day will never come out will never rise the fish will never rise no matter how long the night is one day the future will come inshallah.

00:08:19--> 00:08:28

Now is it in the matters of the user in the MAC address of the user that after the hardship shotkam ease of the hardship comes ease.

00:08:29--> 00:08:34

So you having some difficulties, some problems, some hardship, inshallah low and elevate this hardship

00:08:36--> 00:08:52

upon you. So just you have no other choice by but being, being patient and persevere and don't despair of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala that will earn you the love of Allah. Allah loves those who steadfast those who are patient

00:08:53--> 00:09:06

another thing that will earn you the love of Allah subhana wa tada is that you you perfect your actions, as the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam says that Allah subhana wa Taala loves people whenever they do an action they perfect it.

00:09:07--> 00:09:10

Allah you have with me the eminent and it's cleaner

00:09:11--> 00:09:17

than when you do certain things that you perfect what you do. You work with excellence, don't cut corners whenever you are.

00:09:19--> 00:09:34

It's your work at your school at your at home. When you do something when you undertake a job, do it with sand. Do it with excellence with perfection, put your heart into it, give 110% of it.

00:09:36--> 00:09:45

Because the Prophet Mohammed is awesome says that Allah Subhana Allah loves those who whenever they work, a certain action. They work it with sand.

00:09:46--> 00:09:47

They do it with perfection.

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

That's another thing that will earn you the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala tell that will earn you the love of Allah subhana wa Tada. Repentance will earn you the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala will allow you to be

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

Allah loves those who repent.

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

Yes, just repent to Allah regardless

00:10:07--> 00:10:20

of all the sins that you may do still repent to Allah subhana wa tada live with the two we're being asked to make amongst the Torah between those who repent consistently constantly and continuously to Allah subhanho wa tada

00:10:22--> 00:10:51

while motivating, staying clean will also earn you the love of Allah. Now, staying clean will earn you the love of Allah you know the Voodoo that you do at all times you know before you pray and whatnot and also the bad that you know just staying clean cleanliness is part of the email of the Prophet Mohammed Elisa to slim says, while your head with the webbing or your headboard Matata hating, Allah loves those who repent and those who remain in the state of purity of cleanliness.

00:10:53--> 00:11:06

That will earn you the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and I'd like to end with this in sha Allah that will earn us the love of Allah subhana wa tada is these gatherings

00:11:07--> 00:11:08

the gatherings of

00:11:10--> 00:11:22

and this hadith is narrated by a cadet, the height is reported by a headband and in the hustle that the Prophet Muhammad Ali sathasivam says, When a man loves his brother, he should tell him that he loves him if he said

If you love your brother, I'd like you right now we've seen with your brother, if you see them with your with your mother, if you see them with your father, tell them tell them right now that you love them FISA. What am I just like you say Subhan Allah hamdulillah that Allah just telling your brother that you love if you said we didn't know, it is as you are making the Kaaba law. Because the Prophet says when a man loves his brother, he should tell him that he loves him when his sister loves your sister. She should tell her that she loves her for this MVD law.

00:16:58--> 00:17:27

So hopefully inshallah tada These are some of the ways that will earn us the love of Allah subhana wa tada and remember, let me share with you one Hadith What do you think in fact because I want to see you know, just spend some more just a little more time talking about again love of Allah but to another Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad is the Prophet Mohammed and he said to them says in this hadith is headed is supported by Bukhari Muslim and directed by Allah best Nepali. He says that the Prophet Mohammed Allah such as them says,

00:17:28--> 00:17:50

the family man, man, Nadia Bella helped me Dena obey Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Libyan wa suta he shall surely taste the sweetness of Eman. He who is pleased with Allah as his Lord, He who is pleased the Prophet Mohammed as his prophet, He who is pleased with Islam as his religion is the Prophet Mohammed he says he will shall change the sweetness of the man.

00:17:51--> 00:17:55

Now, he man's got to think straight, a man's got a taste.

00:17:56--> 00:18:11

So once and only once you are pleased with Allah as your Rob, and Mohammed, civilize them as your messenger and it's them as your dean then and only then you can taste that sweetness of Eman. Hello, family man.

00:18:14--> 00:18:23

Why? Because you learn you live in accordance with a law. And then you will say when they ask you who's your Lord, you will say my Lord is Allah.

00:18:45--> 00:18:47

Are you pleased with our Lord?

00:18:49--> 00:18:51

So when you supplicate you supplicate to Allah alone,

00:18:52--> 00:18:59

when you put your trust you put your trust in Allah alone. When you ask you ask Allah alone, when you feel you feel alone.

00:19:01--> 00:19:02

Are you pleased really with Allah your Lord?

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

Question.

00:19:05--> 00:19:08

Let's say you know somebody who has a kid, you have a daughter.

00:19:10--> 00:19:11

And then at two o'clock in the morning,

00:19:13--> 00:19:20

Your daughter, she just you know, she lost it. She becomes so blue, almost outbreeding and then you put some ice on her and then you call 911.

00:19:40--> 00:19:52

And then you put ice on her head and then some water just to wake her up. The ambulance comes and then you go with your wife on you. And then you're you when you in your pajamas.

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

You didn't have time to put your clothes on because you're so worried you don't know what you're doing. In fact, you're going you know, bare feet. It

00:20:01--> 00:20:33

And then you take your daughter into the hospital. And then she's she, she wakes up, but she still has that fever. They go they they take her in the Demeter and then you know, they have to do this blood sample thing to her, you know, and then you see your daughter there she's little baby, you know? And then because you see the baby because right this this is this ultra vena thinky. So that what they do they bring into this, they they try to get so much you know, it's just I don't know, if you've been there, it's so this like butcher just so that they can take a blood sample of a verta test.

00:20:35--> 00:21:03

And then they give her some medicine that they keep on watching her until the temperature goes down. And then you wait and then the blood sample comes back with the handler, they say oh, she's okay. You know, there's nothing wrong. It's just that it's high fever. Let's watch the fever. Keep watching the fever. And then Henry said hamdulillah you got so scared, you panicked, you were crying, your wife was crying. You've never seen something like that before. And then you go back home, five o'clock in the morning.

00:21:05--> 00:21:10

00:21:29--> 00:21:34

Are you going to wake up, as soon as you put your head you're gonna wake up Makoto and go to the machine and

00:21:52--> 00:21:57

claimed that we love Allah, that you are pleased with Allah as your Lord. Are you reading?

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

Let me ask you another question.

00:22:02--> 00:22:04

For instance, let's say your boss.

00:22:06--> 00:22:15

He says Well, if you want that promotion, you have to join the club. What club? The club of the Fazal club?

00:22:16--> 00:22:26

The League club. So you have to be part of the club. Because this club we all prefer in the machine. So you become part of the club. You get the promotion.

00:22:27--> 00:22:29

Are you going to become part of the club?

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

Oh, man.

00:22:35--> 00:22:49

Oh, he says if you want this promotion, you gotta quit smoking. Because you know, this job this VP or president whatever it is, it cannot be smoking. So you have to quit smoking to get the promotion. What are you gonna do? You're gonna quit smoking for the promotion?

00:22:50--> 00:22:57

The How are they say you have to? Or Or no, you have to put a job to be part of the club.

00:22:59--> 00:23:01

Are you going to put a job not to be part of the club to get the promotion?

00:23:04--> 00:23:08

That's what it means be pleased with Allah. And the Prophet Mohammed as your prophet.

00:23:10--> 00:23:12

been pleased with law. So the law as my prophet

00:23:13--> 00:23:21

and been pleased with Islam as my Deen is really Islam. You. Are you pleased with Islam and Ed, Are you pleased that you're Muslim? Are you proud of it?

00:23:23--> 00:24:00

The man by the name of Mr. Dean, he comes to your home. When he says Mr. knock at the door and he says I want to come in. Who are you? I am Mr. Dean. Okay, what do you want? Mr. Dean, I want to come to your home says No, Mr. Dean, you cannot come into my home. And then Mr. D says, Well, let me in put me in your bedroom or Mr. Deena, Hey, no, I can't wait for my major. My bedroom is for me and my wife. How about you guestroom? No. How about your living room? How about your kitchen put me anywhere? And he's okay Mr. Dean, come come I have a better place for you. And then you take into the ministry and you say Mr. Dean, here's your place you stay the budget. From time to time I will

00:24:00--> 00:24:02

00:24:08--> 00:24:12

Whereas didn't our homes are proud that I'm a Muslim?

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

Muslim? Am I pleased with Islam as my Deen? Really that's what it means what is needed in my life? What is Dean and Mike my manners, my morals? What is d? What is Islam?

00:24:26--> 00:24:33
