We believe in him we trust in Him. We bear witness that nothing deserves to be worship except Allah. And we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is an awesome messenger and his slave.
I want to say on this
I don't mean to embarrass you. Mm
hmm. Mohammed Ahmed
is a man whom I love very much. It's not just words. It's, it's true.
And how blessed you are.
You know why?
Because you are a 21st century man.

to give light and guidance everywhere you go.
I was axed maybe a week ago you ma'am. What's your topic? The football for today? What will it be?
And I texted
what's love got to do with it?
And you know, unlike you, you blessed to have Muslim parents.
Most of you
a Muslim parents.
Me, I was the first Muslim my family.
So I grew up here in this country
in the dunya.
And I remember many songs that I used to listen to when I was young.
And one of the songs was this. What's love got to do with it?
I said to myself, when the man hears this and hear the football he's gonna Google
to find out what's love got to do with it.
And he surprised me.
He knew the person who sang the song
I saw you serious.
So this is what I want to talk about today. What law has to do with it?
The answer is
Today is good.
Everything is about love and this is what I want to leave you with. I want to leave you with some work to do I don't want you to just to listen to the football to be entertained.
I want you to take something from it. Because the more you study Islam you find out everything has to do with love.
who is not who's not he has the most beautiful names and one of them anyway dude.
Allah He is the one who loves

Torah will NGO, la sent down the Torah and the NGO.
A seminarian Musab these are the messengers of Allah.
And in the Bible, they say God is love.

The Prophet peace and blessings upon him said, Let's call Jan nahata tumino.

In the heavy metal Come on Martin wahida wanna robocon father doing this? Oh man of yours is one oh man, and I am your Lord. So worship me.
A conversation between the Prophet peace and blessing be upon them. And Omar Abdullah Han 1400 years ago.
Omar says to the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam,
ala rasulillah Huggy Lamin Cooley, Shane, il NFC,
O Messenger of Allah, you are more beloved to me than anything else,
That's a powerful statement
to me than anything else except myself.
All of enough sitting here,
I swear by him and whose hand my life is,
until I am more loved by you than yourself.
And then almost
an will lie.
You are more beloved to me, then myself.
And the Prophet said,
Allah and Yama now.
You see, the Imam will tell you there's a movement around the world. They call themselves and Cora Nia Al Quran iya These are the people these are Muslims who say we don't need Hadees
we don't need Hadees All we need is the Quran. Really?
You think you can practice Islam without Hadees Really?
All we need is the Quran. You believe that for sure.
All right, let's see
five prayers a day beginning with fauja
I mean rocket you make you make two or you know the Quran don't say
for rockets for for how we do
see rockets for for for for for Asia for for us. Hi.
Oh, we have to do Hodge, you Nick Hodge, when do you begin? How'd you
How you doing?
How many times you go around the copper. Buddha PJ suffered a murder we're going to
go on to lose della fat you tell me for following the Quran itself. Because the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him. He explains the Quran the Quran was revealed to him and he explains it
for Luca naraku.
Morning Sunday the prophecy prays you see me pray.
Then Allah says the ultimate
compliment to the Prophet peace and blessings be upon. Now you tiraspol fukada Allah,
whoever obeys the messenger has in fact will be it alone.
So ask myself the question why did the Prophet tell Omar
that no, no Omar? Will you don't have full faith?
Unless I am more beloved to you than yourself.
You know, the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him.
He doesn't follow his own desire
is nothing but
what you can when you get a chance not now but I want you to go to the ninth chapter of the Quran in the 24th verse. This explains why the Prophet peace and blessings be upon them told oma
not until I am more loved by you than yourself. This explains why
some will go into details or just say quickly cool in Kenya
as Raja Kumar so you have to either
say, Allah is telling the prophet to say if it is that you love your fathers, and your children, and your brothers and your wives,
and your near relatives, and the wealth that you have gained, in the businesses that you fear decline in your homes that you love. It was more beloved to you that Allah
His Messenger, Allah wants you to love the Prophet more than we love ourselves.
It makes sense.
So brothers and sisters, too.
Today I want to leave you with this. Number one. Love one another.
No, I should say number one to love Allah and His messenger. And then to love one another.

But don't pray but I believe
it's impossible for you to really believe and you don't make a lot I'm shocked when I learned that there are people don't make a lot how do you not make a lot
the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him.
Amen came to him he wanted to learn about Islam.
And the Prophet said comes the Sunnah what five prayers a day

no except what is extra and then the Prophet said cmo Ramadan is coming soon in the month of
Ramadan fasting in the month of Ramadan hallelujah guiro who is anything more than this fast Ramadan Kala
