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.

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

I want to say on this

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

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

And how blessed you are.

00:00:40 --> 00:00:41

You know why?

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

Because you are a 21st century man.

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

The Lord has blessed you

00:00:52 --> 00:00:56

to give light and guidance everywhere you go.

00:00:59 --> 00:01:06

I was axed maybe a week ago you ma'am. What's your topic? The football for today? What will it be?

00:01:08 --> 00:01:09

And I texted

00:01:12 --> 00:01:15

what's love got to do with it?

00:01:17 --> 00:01:23

And you know, unlike you, you blessed to have Muslim parents.

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

Most of you

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

a Muslim parents.

00:01:29 --> 00:01:33

Me, I was the first Muslim my family.

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

So I grew up here in this country

00:01:42 --> 00:01:43

in the dunya.

00:01:44 --> 00:01:49

And I remember many songs that I used to listen to when I was young.

00:01:51 --> 00:01:56

And one of the songs was this. What's love got to do with it?

00:01:57 --> 00:02:03

I said to myself, when the man hears this and hear the football he's gonna Google

00:02:05 --> 00:02:08

to find out what's love got to do with it.

00:02:10 --> 00:02:12

And he surprised me.

00:02:13 --> 00:02:15

He knew the person who sang the song

00:02:17 --> 00:02:18


00:02:19 --> 00:02:20

I saw you serious.

00:02:22 --> 00:02:25

So this is what I want to talk about today. What law has to do with it?

00:02:29 --> 00:02:30

The answer is

00:02:32 --> 00:02:33


00:02:34 --> 00:02:35

Today is good.

00:02:37 --> 00:02:45

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.

00:02:47 --> 00:02:58

I want you to take something from it. Because the more you study Islam you find out everything has to do with love.

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

Alma dude

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

who is not who's not he has the most beautiful names and one of them anyway dude.

00:03:11 --> 00:03:13

Allah He is the one who loves

00:03:15 --> 00:03:31

00:03:32 --> 00:03:37

Torah will NGO, la sent down the Torah and the NGO.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:42

A seminarian Musab these are the messengers of Allah.

00:03:43 --> 00:03:48

And in the Bible, they say God is love.

00:03:49 --> 00:03:57

God is love. And today I want you to to appreciate this first of all relationships with one another.

00:03:59 --> 00:04:04

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

00:04:05 --> 00:04:08

Allah to be no Hector Tabu.

00:04:09 --> 00:04:15

You will never go to Jenna. Until you believe that makes sense.

00:04:17 --> 00:04:20

And you will never believe until you love one another.

00:04:21 --> 00:04:22

Do you love one another?

00:04:24 --> 00:04:30

1,800,000,000 Muslims around the world do you love them?

00:04:32 --> 00:04:59

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.

00:05:01 --> 00:05:09

A conversation between the Prophet peace and blessing be upon them. And Omar Abdullah Han 1400 years ago.

00:05:10 --> 00:05:13

Omar says to the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam,

00:05:14 --> 00:05:18

ala rasulillah Huggy Lamin Cooley, Shane, il NFC,

00:05:21 --> 00:05:29

O Messenger of Allah, you are more beloved to me than anything else,

00:05:30 --> 00:05:32

except myself.

00:05:34 --> 00:05:35

That's a powerful statement

00:05:39 --> 00:05:41

to me than anything else except myself.

00:05:49 --> 00:05:50

All of enough sitting here,

00:05:51 --> 00:05:55

I swear by him and whose hand my life is,

00:05:56 --> 00:06:01

until I am more loved by you than yourself.

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


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

And then almost

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

an will lie.

00:06:11 --> 00:06:14

You are more beloved to me, then myself.

00:06:15 --> 00:06:16

And the Prophet said,

00:06:17 --> 00:06:21

Allah and Yama now.

00:06:22 --> 00:06:38

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

00:06:40 --> 00:06:44

we don't need Hadees All we need is the Quran. Really?

00:06:46 --> 00:06:50

You think you can practice Islam without Hadees Really?

00:06:52 --> 00:06:56

All we need is the Quran. You believe that for sure.

00:06:57 --> 00:06:59

All right, let's see

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

five prayers a day beginning with fauja

00:07:05 --> 00:07:09

I mean rocket you make you make two or you know the Quran don't say

00:07:11 --> 00:07:13

for rockets for for how we do

00:07:16 --> 00:07:22

see rockets for for for for for Asia for for us. Hi.

00:07:24 --> 00:07:29

Oh, we have to do Hodge, you Nick Hodge, when do you begin? How'd you

00:07:31 --> 00:07:32

How you doing?

00:07:33 --> 00:07:38

How many times you go around the copper. Buddha PJ suffered a murder we're going to

00:07:39 --> 00:07:51

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

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

for Luca naraku.

00:07:56 --> 00:07:59

Morning Sunday the prophecy prays you see me pray.

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

Then Allah says the ultimate

00:08:03 --> 00:08:09

compliment to the Prophet peace and blessings be upon. Now you tiraspol fukada Allah,

00:08:10 --> 00:08:15

whoever obeys the messenger has in fact will be it alone.

00:08:16 --> 00:08:20

So ask myself the question why did the Prophet tell Omar

00:08:21 --> 00:08:26

that no, no Omar? Will you don't have full faith?

00:08:27 --> 00:08:31

Unless I am more beloved to you than yourself.

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

You know, the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him.

00:08:36 --> 00:08:39

He doesn't follow his own desire

00:08:40 --> 00:08:41

is nothing but

00:08:43 --> 00:08:56

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

00:08:58 --> 00:09:03

not until I am more loved by you than yourself. This explains why

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

some will go into details or just say quickly cool in Kenya

00:09:11 --> 00:09:14

as Raja Kumar so you have to either

00:09:15 --> 00:09:26

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,

00:09:27 --> 00:09:41

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

00:09:42 --> 00:09:44

His Messenger,

00:09:46 --> 00:09:52

His Messenger, Allah wants you to love the Prophet more than we love ourselves.

00:09:54 --> 00:09:55

It makes sense.

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

So brothers and sisters, too.

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

Today I want to leave you with this. Number one. Love one another.

00:10:07 --> 00:10:14

No, I should say number one to love Allah and His messenger. And then to love one another.

00:10:16 --> 00:10:18

There is one brother

00:10:19 --> 00:10:35

in my community that I know, we knew each other in the dunya we were best friends in the dunya so he can say what no one else can say Yes, me and he mama Suraj we were friends in the dunya we're best friends. We play basketball together.

00:10:37 --> 00:10:39

We went to parties together.

00:10:43 --> 00:10:53

I was in college, and I introduced them to one of my friends in college and she became his wife.

00:10:55 --> 00:10:59

But you know what? All those years we know each other.

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

Now we love each other FISA de la

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

Yeoman Fiamma. yaku la

00:11:13 --> 00:11:27

Bula BJ vigilante well those who love each other for my glory it's one thing to be friends we we did all those things we hung out together but now to love each other for

00:11:28 --> 00:11:30

pets to love.

00:11:31 --> 00:11:37

So, we want to love one another. Well, hamdulillah are below the mean.

00:11:53 --> 00:11:56

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen

00:11:58 --> 00:12:03

brothers and sisters, I want to admit to you I get nervous when I talk to young Muslims

00:12:05 --> 00:12:10

who tell me Yes ma'am. Suras I'm a Muslim. So that's good.

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

Do you pray? No.

00:12:15 --> 00:12:16

But don't pray but I believe

00:12:18 --> 00:12:19

for you.

00:12:20 --> 00:12:21


00:12:23 --> 00:12:31

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

00:12:34 --> 00:12:36

the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him.

00:12:39 --> 00:12:43

Amen came to him he wanted to learn about Islam.

00:12:46 --> 00:12:50

And the Prophet said comes the Sunnah what five prayers a day

00:12:51 --> 00:12:52

listen to what he said

00:12:55 --> 00:12:57

nothing more than a five prayers a day

00:12:59 --> 00:13:06

no except what is extra and then the Prophet said cmo Ramadan is coming soon in the month of

00:13:07 --> 00:13:15

Ramadan fasting in the month of Ramadan hallelujah guiro who is anything more than this fast Ramadan Kala

00:13:18 --> 00:13:28

No, no. Except what is extra? And then the perfectly so that was an answer as a cat hallelujah guy who has anything more color left.

00:13:30 --> 00:13:48

Except what is extra. So the man he turned around and walked away and said what lie lies he had? Will ankle soo min Whoa. I swear by Allah I will neither increase nor decrease and the profit at least that was an answered for the hand photocall

00:13:50 --> 00:13:52

if he would do that

00:13:53 --> 00:13:54

he'd be successful.

00:13:56 --> 00:13:57


00:13:58 --> 00:14:03

I would argue that when you do the mandatory maybe you do because you feel alone.

00:14:05 --> 00:14:07

If I don't make Salah I say Allah

00:14:09 --> 00:14:17

on Yom Okayama the people in general will look down to people and Hellfire missiles aka soccer has landed you in the Hellfire

00:14:25 --> 00:14:27

will not go so mate solok

00:14:28 --> 00:14:29

Inga no option.

00:14:31 --> 00:14:39

It is a loss, right? The hippie worship how he is to be worship. Five prayers a day you have to do

00:14:41 --> 00:14:47

it before the rise of the sun and you turn to an Kaaba and you pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:51 --> 00:14:54

you can't get up to make prayer to Allah.

00:14:56 --> 00:14:58

You can fast in the month of Ramadan.

00:14:59 --> 00:15:00

You can

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

gives a cat

00:15:04 --> 00:15:05


00:15:06 --> 00:15:07

we're not doing a lot of favor

00:15:09 --> 00:15:17

Allah don't need us know that he need our salon also cat on cm you don't need us

00:15:18 --> 00:15:21

you cannot benefit Allah no Can you harm him?

00:15:23 --> 00:15:26

What It Is it is it is his right.

00:15:28 --> 00:15:47

So the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him he said there's nothing that brings a slave closer to Allah than the fluoride you will get close to Allah make us a lot. You want to get close to Allah, you fast in the month of Ramadan you want to get close to a lot you paid as a cat

00:15:49 --> 00:15:52

and then when a person does the noesis

00:15:54 --> 00:15:55

the extra

00:15:57 --> 00:15:59

Allah loves them

00:16:01 --> 00:16:07

you want to get closer to Allah so Allah love you for sure. In them there's another song

00:16:08 --> 00:16:13

and other song was and you may not know this one you may be too young for this one.

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

It's um

00:16:20 --> 00:16:21

I'm gonna make you love me.

00:16:22 --> 00:16:29

There was a group call the Supremes, Diana Ross and the Supremes. Some of you shaking your head

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

and, and the temptations.

00:16:35 --> 00:16:41

I'm gonna make you love me. I'm gonna do all the things for you. A man wants a woman to do

00:16:43 --> 00:16:44

another song.

00:16:46 --> 00:16:55

I Can't Make You Love Me. A third song. I can't make you love me. I'm saying today in this Masjid. You can make a lot love you.

00:16:56 --> 00:17:00

What you mean ma'am? What do you mean you can force a lot of love you. I don't mean that.

00:17:01 --> 00:17:07

I mean if you do this, Allah will love you. I give you 10 examples I give you maybe 312 or three

00:17:08 --> 00:17:13

cool and conform to HIPAA law. The only common law

00:17:16 --> 00:17:18

say Say Say Say if you love

00:17:21 --> 00:17:27

me, if you love Allah say this to say this to the people if you love Allah follow me

00:17:29 --> 00:17:30

of our love you.

00:17:31 --> 00:17:45

If you give me a sense, you want to get the love of Allah, Allah Muhammad peace unless I give you another one. And Assad whom in the movement whether you give monastic men

00:17:47 --> 00:17:50

the answer, no one loves them but a believer

00:17:53 --> 00:17:54

in nun hates them but a

00:17:55 --> 00:17:56


00:17:57 --> 00:18:04

Whoever loves them, Allah loves whoever hates them. alights

00:18:05 --> 00:18:14

we can get Allah subhanho wa Taala to love us by doing those things that is pleasing to Him. In my last point

00:18:16 --> 00:18:18

just in case you never forget this.

00:18:19 --> 00:18:27

It is impossible is impossible to love Allah more than Allah loves us.

00:18:28 --> 00:18:31

Some possible can do it

00:18:33 --> 00:18:43

because you see when you love someone is a manifestation is not lip service. So you can lip service I love you. I love you I

00:18:45 --> 00:18:46

love you.

00:18:47 --> 00:18:48


00:18:51 --> 00:18:54

easy to say. It's really easy to say

00:18:55 --> 00:18:56

but the manifested

00:18:57 --> 00:18:58

the answer.

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

They love the mahogany.

00:19:03 --> 00:19:07

Answer wasn't the name that wasn't the name of a tribe. Allah gave them that name.

00:19:09 --> 00:19:10

I finished with this

00:19:11 --> 00:19:30

as our pseudo law he saw the law seldom been abroad men in alpha Saudi Arabia, and the profit made a band of brotherhood between the Mahajan and the answer. After alpha Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabia and saw he says I am the wealthiest of the handsaw.

00:19:31 --> 00:19:34

the wealthiest no one has more than me.

00:19:36 --> 00:19:38

Take half my wealth.

00:19:40 --> 00:19:45

Can I give you a modern perspective? Bill Gates,

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

probably the richest American

00:19:49 --> 00:19:50


00:19:51 --> 00:19:52

him I'm

00:19:55 --> 00:19:59

gonna love you. I'm going to give you half my wealth.

00:20:01 --> 00:20:04

Normally, that would be something like $59 billion

00:20:05 --> 00:20:06

people give you

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

this love the answer head for the Mahajan.

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

So brothers and sisters on Let us love one another and let's do it for Allah only be one other thing that has just happened is

00:20:21 --> 00:20:27

this a store that I go to brothers from Yemen that's not far from my house. It's a grocery store.

00:20:28 --> 00:20:33

And about a month ago, I saw an African American elderly woman

00:20:34 --> 00:20:40

in a in a recall those things sit in the walker Walker.

00:20:42 --> 00:20:48

And she's on the outside of the of the store. She has a cup. So she wants some charity.

00:20:49 --> 00:20:50

So I went there.

00:20:52 --> 00:20:55

And I put $20 in the end, India,

00:20:56 --> 00:21:04

fill a cup. So as I was putting it, she says thank you. But once you saw what it was, thank you. Thank you, thank you.

00:21:06 --> 00:21:07

I didn't know how

00:21:08 --> 00:21:09

I didn't answer her religion.

00:21:11 --> 00:21:12

She needed it.

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

And it was cold outside.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:20

I came the next week, put another $20 in it.

00:21:22 --> 00:21:27

The third time I came, I didn't know him and she recognized my car. She waved at me.

00:21:29 --> 00:21:30


00:21:31 --> 00:21:35

I gave a $50. I put $50 in the envelope and gave it

00:21:38 --> 00:21:39

I told my wife about it the ma'am.

00:21:41 --> 00:21:42

No, my wife did.

00:21:43 --> 00:21:56

She went to the store. And she looked for that woman. She wanted to give us something just because her husband gave it she understood the condition. Yesterday I'm coming from the masjid. I said, You know what? It's raining. It's cold.

00:21:57 --> 00:22:01

I said, I'll go maybe tomorrow to give us something.

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

Then I said you know what? You may need it today.

00:22:06 --> 00:22:12

Maybe she's dead today. And she saw it. And I gave another $50

00:22:13 --> 00:22:17
