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

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

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

solidaridad of Sudan Kareem and my word for the villa Humana Shea Pinilla, Dean Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, Ravi strategies Sati were silly Emery letter melissani of Coco de.

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

So, yesterday the last topic that we studied was with regards to alesse Coronavirus irata and his mushiya

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

his battle machine it was irati de la his panel.

00:00:34--> 00:00:51

Generally when we hear these terms it either machine it either means intention and machine is from Sha, like Masha Allah insha Allah, that also means will. So, intention will want we generally understand it to be the same thing.

00:00:52--> 00:01:33

Remember that when it comes to irata with respect to a loss of panel data, it is of two categories. Okay, when it comes to will want intention with respect to a loss of panel data, there's two categories The first category is irata konia or irata called area meaning with respect to cone with respect to the universe with with respect to other meaning decree. So, this means anything that Allah soprano data once that should happen with respect to the creation. So, for example, Allah wants that range should fall somewhere. So what happens

00:01:34--> 00:01:46

it will fall Allah wants that a child should be born. So what happens the child is born a lot once that a person should die. So that person nice

00:01:47--> 00:02:19

Allah once that there should be bloodshed. Like we learnt yesterday, while OSHA Allahu mcdata right, but Allah wanted and this is the reason why it happened. Okay. Now this is synonymous to mushiya mushiya and arada gives a meaning of shatta. He wants meaning he wills, you understand he wants meaning he wills. Now remember that when it comes to irata konia. Okay, and we're talking about mushiya.

00:02:21--> 00:02:28

remember two things. First of all, remember that this includes what Allah loves, and also what he does not love.

00:02:30--> 00:02:46

You understand? So just because Allah wanted, that a person should die does not mean that Allah wants that that person should suffer and he should experience pain, he wants evil, he likes he will know he wants don't equate that with love.

00:02:47--> 00:03:07

You understand what does not mean? Love. It does not mean? Like it gives a meaning off he allows it he lets it happen. So remember that mushiya irata konia irata podria This includes what Allah loves and also what he does not love.

00:03:08--> 00:03:28

The second thing that you must remember about this is that this always occurs, meaning whatever Allah once it will definitely occur, it will definitely happen. It cannot be opposed. Like we say Masha Allah who can woman Yeshua lamea could,

00:03:29--> 00:03:34

what Allah once will certainly happen. And what Allah does not want can never happen.

00:03:35--> 00:03:54

Correct. So this is something that we believe this is irata konia with respect to the universe, and this is where, you know, when people have questions such as how come there's bloodshed and how come there's so much evil? Yes, it happened by Allah's will. If he did not will, it would never have happened.

00:03:55--> 00:04:00

Don't we learn in the Quran, that when OSHA Allahu Allah Jalla cometan wahida.

00:04:01--> 00:04:18

So if there is division, if there is disunity, if there are differences amongst people this is because Allah let it happen. But don't equate that with a loss, love. Meaning don't think that Allah loves that, that Allah likes it.

00:04:19--> 00:04:55

He let it happen, but it doesn't mean that he loves it. Here in the Quran also we learn that anything good that happens to you, it's from Allah and anything bad that happens to you. It's because of what your hands have acquired, right? Meaning Allah lets it happen because if Allah did not let it happen, would it ever happen? No. So whether there is COVID orders or orders in effect, anything anything that happens it happens by Allah's permission, Allah wielded because Masha a level kana. All right, but it doesn't mean that he loves it.

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

If he wants Can he stop it. Of course. Don't

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

We learn when OSHA Allahu legem Arkham lol Buddha, if he wanted, he could have gathered all of you on guidance, meaning everyone would have been forced to be a believer.

00:05:10--> 00:05:16

But that's not the way of Allah, Allah has given freedom to people, but a person cannot do anything unless Allah

00:05:17--> 00:05:18

lets him.

00:05:19--> 00:05:37

Correct. Okay. Now the second type of irata, the second category is irata. shutter a year. And what does that mean? It is with respect to the religion, it is with respect to the laws that Allah has given to human beings to people to observe. God are

00:05:38--> 00:05:40

the commands that he revealed.

00:05:41--> 00:06:17

And remember that this, when we're talking about this a lot, this is synonymous to muhabba. So when we say Allah Radha, it means that he have been. So for instance, Allah has intended Allah wants, that his creation should worship Him, people should worship Him, then what does it mean? Allah loves that. You understand? Allah wants that we should pray five times a day. What does it mean? That Allah loves that? Allah wants that we should do will do before we pray that we should fast all days of Ramadan?

00:06:19--> 00:06:24

Don't we learn over the beauty the love will be common? Yes, sir. Right? What does it mean over there that he loves it?

00:06:25--> 00:06:33

Now remember that when it comes to irata sherea, again, remember two things. First of all, it is related to what Allah loves.

00:06:34--> 00:06:39

So when we're talking about something that Allah wants in the religion,

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

then it means that he loves it.

00:06:44--> 00:07:15

You understand? If Allah has made something a part of the religion, then what does it mean? He loves it. And this is the reason why we believe that, you know, for example, in the time of travel, when there are certain allowances that are made, Allah loves that those allowances are also taken, because he is the one who has given all the comments. So any command or religion, what do we believe Allah loves? That it is in other Sharia, it is equal to love.

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

Secondly, remember that your other Sharia, it is not necessary that this occurs.

00:07:23--> 00:07:25

People may oppose Allah in that.

00:07:26--> 00:07:33

Why? Because he has given the choice to people. So for instance, Allah loves that he should be worship that do all people worship?

00:07:34--> 00:07:46

No, Allah loves that. His servants should pray, but does everybody pray? No, Allah loves that people should perform, we'll do before saw that. But does everybody do that? Not necessarily.

00:07:48--> 00:07:52

When it comes to irata konia Do we have any choice?

00:07:53--> 00:07:55

You know, in the Quran, we learn about the example of sujood

00:07:57--> 00:07:59

that how everything frustrates to Allah

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

shadows even this is what Iran akoni

00:08:06--> 00:08:07

but a human being doing such

00:08:09--> 00:08:12

a human being doing such that this is what it other shutter.

00:08:14--> 00:08:47

You understand, but but do people oppose Allah in that regard? Yes, some refuse to prostrate, some refuse to pray. So, some people what they think is that Oh, look, Allah's religion is not being observed. That means all power is not with Allah. No, don't think like that. It's because Allah has given the freedom to people for some time, for a little while. Because this is how people judge Islam. That how weak Islam is how weak Muslims are. That means it's not the truth. No,

00:08:48--> 00:09:23

Allah has allowed people to obey and disobey, to worship and to refuse not because he is weak. But because he has given the people the choice. And this is a test. So you understand the differences between it other Kony and your other Sheree? Okay. So the main difference is basically in two ways it either Kony always happens, because it is what Allah has decreed. It must happen. People don't have any choice, our body surrenders. Our body submits, you cannot stop your shadow from frustrating, can you?

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

You can't.

00:09:26--> 00:09:29

It always happens. But in other shutter iya

00:09:30--> 00:09:40

it's not necessary that it always happens. Why? Because people have been given a choice with respect to that. The second difference is that irata Sharia is what Allah loves.

00:09:41--> 00:09:49

Allah loves it. And konia is general meaning it includes what Allah loves and also what he does not love.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

There is a question, how can Allah intend something that he does not love? Meaning he lets it happen, how can he allow gopher? How can he allow

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

Should, because Northern Michigan would say lo sha Allah, Masha Hakuna. So if we're doing sugar, we're doing it because Allah allowed us he will do it. And likewise many people, they put the blame on Allah subhanaw taala. If Allah wanted, I would have been a very good Muslim. If Allah wanted, I would have been very much their own weaknesses, their own sense. Who do they put the responsibility on? Allah subhanaw taala as if we have no choice, ultimate decision is his and we can't do anything. And there are good things and there are also certain bad things. I they attribute everything to Allah soprano. This is true that nothing can happen unless Allah allows it. This is true. But how do

00:10:43--> 00:10:46

we understand that Allah allows evil to happen?

00:10:48--> 00:11:11

Why does he allow evil to happen? How can he let bad happen? Of course to separate the good from the bad? Because if we didn't have any choice, then how would people be differentiated? Meaning a person who has good character in a person was bad character? How would they be differentiated a person who has more sub more patients as opposed to the one who doesn't?

00:11:12--> 00:11:23

So when a law let something bad happen to us, in our lives, this is a test that the true person is revealed. is exposed.

00:11:25--> 00:11:57

You understand? Exactly this is the test of life. If we did not have to choose between good and bad, then how would this be a test? then this would be Jenna. You understand? What's that place where everything is good, everything is perfect, then not this dunya in this dunya there is no perfection. And remember that even if there is something evil that Allah wills, there's always a good aspect to it. A good side to it.

00:11:58--> 00:12:01

Always even a beliefs.

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

Okay, if Allah let him he gave him a choice, he let him rebel. And Allah allowed Iblees go after my servants you can go

00:12:11--> 00:12:29

Iblees asked Allah right. For unlucky. Give me rest by Allah said, Go ahead. Do you have that recipe? Imagine if this has been given a life so long until the day of judgment? And what is he? He's a symbol of evil? But is there any good in that? Is there a good aspect in at least being there?

00:12:30--> 00:12:46

Hmm. You know, scholars have listed numerous benefits of having a police around. Think about it. If it leaves wasn't there, and he did not prompt us to Satan to disobey, would we know doba and is the

00:12:47--> 00:12:58

other one is Salam. He made a mistake. Right? But then what happened? Allah subhanaw taala taught him words of the law.

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

If he didn't make that mistake, if if this didn't persuade him to commit that sin, why would we get that in from

00:13:08--> 00:13:18

you understand what would be Toba? And when a person commits a sin, He faults and he does know about Allah loves Toba. The servant draws even closer to Allah.

00:13:20--> 00:13:28

So many times we learned that the servant made a mistake. And Allah accepted his repentance and he chose him.

00:13:30--> 00:13:36

Meaning the servant drew nearer to Allah subhanaw taala. So remember that nothing is pure evil.

00:13:37--> 00:13:51

Okay, there may be evil with respect to the individual. So for example, it believes evil. However, there's always there's also a good side to it. Remember, shaitan he kept coming and stealing.

00:13:53--> 00:14:01

And then Abu huraira below or in her writing. She had gone told him that if you recite this one ayah you won't be hurt. We won't bother you.

00:14:02--> 00:14:11

And what did he say? I could see the prophet SAW a lot of him said that he's a liar, but he spoke the truth. So we learned something good. Even from shavon

00:14:12--> 00:14:27

You understand? So remember that anything that is evil that is bad that Allah allows that Allah wields should happen. Okay. It is good from one aspect on Yes, it's mcru from another

00:14:29--> 00:14:41

what is our duty that we don't think that about? Allah subhanaw taala decisions? We don't question his decisions we don't doubt his decisions. Rather we accept them.

00:14:42--> 00:14:55

Accept them no matter what it is. Whether it is in our lives in ourselves in our in our family in our situation, the state of the Muslim Oh my engender whatever it is. There is good.

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

There is good in it. So seek that good. And this is the benefit of

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

This belief

00:15:01--> 00:15:08

that when you believe that everything that happens happens with Allah's permission, good or bad, then this increases our reliance on him.

00:15:09--> 00:15:30

Right? And this motivates us to do what Allah loves, and keep away from what he does not love. What does he love the commands that He has given? So strive to earn his love and this is where we move to the next theme which is is where to Mahabharata Lehi Who am I What did he leave earlier? He

00:15:32--> 00:15:53

is battle affirmation of Mahabharata. He loves love of Allah, meaning Allah 's love affirming affirmation of Allah's love affirming the fact that Allah loves one more word that he and his mother MOBA is also love, but it's pure love harmless and

00:15:55--> 00:16:00

affirming the fact that Allah loves who. The Olia he has love for his friends,

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

Allah Jacobi generally, in a way that befits His Majesty, meaning we believe that Allah loves his servants, his friends, but obviously we will affirm that in the way that best fits him. We don't

00:16:18--> 00:16:22

compare his love with the love of the creation.

00:16:24--> 00:16:34

You understand? We love people love each other people love different things. Allah subhanaw taala he also loves his servants. How does he love?

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

How what kind of love what's the nature of that love, we don't go on describing that without knowledge,

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

or likability.

00:16:45--> 00:16:52

Now this is amazing. Allah subhanaw taala such a great Lord, who does not need anybody,

00:16:53--> 00:16:56

anything, yet he loves his servants.

00:16:57--> 00:17:11

We think that love is weakness, or Mercy is weakness. But it is not weakness with respect to a loss upon without it is only perfection. That despite being so great, so free of need,

00:17:12--> 00:17:18

despite the fact that he is so just still, he loves his servants.

00:17:19--> 00:17:26

And when he loves his servant, when he loves this friend, then that servant is successful.

00:17:28--> 00:17:32

Because he has acquired something that's really the key to success.

00:17:33--> 00:17:37

He's the luckiest person, the one who earns allows love

00:17:38--> 00:17:53

because that love is the most reliable, the most useful when people love us. We have this confidence. I have my mom's love. I have my dad's love. I have their support. It's a source of confidence, comfort.

00:17:54--> 00:18:00

But what happens when we begin to think that love is sufficient, meaning people's love is sufficient?

00:18:01--> 00:18:16

Does that love disappoint us? Yes, it does. Because people they love you today and tomorrow. They are angry at you. They hurt your feelings. They break your heart. They say harsh words and then they come back and apologize, but

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

it's not the same. You try to get over it takes days.

00:18:22--> 00:18:27

And you cannot accept you cannot understand how someone who claims to love you could hurt you in that way.

00:18:28--> 00:18:29

breaks your heart

00:18:30--> 00:18:41

breaks your trust the love of people. It's definitely one that disappoints that hurts. But the love of Allah soprano Alto,

00:18:42--> 00:18:49

it never hurts. It never disappoints. It's always a source of comfort and relief.

00:18:50--> 00:19:13

This doesn't mean that we don't love people, or we don't care about the fact that they love us know. Love is something natural. But rise above the love of people do not depend on their love. Because our problem is that when we love someone and they love us, then we're good to them and they're good to us. We will give them their How can they will give us our hug.

00:19:14--> 00:19:30

Our good behavior is dependent on what they're loving our love. But this is not how it should be. I will love should be directed to who Allah soprano. And for Allah's love, we deal with people correctly.

00:19:31--> 00:19:52

Understand, because he is the one who has told us to give the hug, for example of the husband of the parents of the children. So even though they break your heart, even though you were hurt, and you're upset, still, you will be good to them. Why because you love Allah. And Allah has told you to be good to them. Allah has told you to give them their help.

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

And this is so true. The day a person truly loves Allah.

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

That is the day that he will be truly happy.

00:20:03--> 00:20:05

Happiness cannot come

00:20:06--> 00:20:08

except by loving Allah,

00:20:09--> 00:20:11

except by giving all your love to him.

00:20:14--> 00:20:21

When we love people, our actions depend on that love. those actions cannot continue.

00:20:22--> 00:20:27

They cannot last. They can never bring happiness. They can never bring satisfaction.

00:20:28--> 00:20:44

But when we love Allah, and we prefer that love over everything else, and it doesn't matter how people are, and whether they hurt us, or they love us, they appreciate us or they ridiculous, that doesn't matter. true happiness comes with loving Allah subhana

00:20:45--> 00:20:49

wa COVID he and his statement, what I say no,

00:20:50--> 00:21:02

and do a sand because in the law, you have been more sinning. Indeed, Allah loves those who do so it's upon Allah, you want allows love,

00:21:03--> 00:21:27

do sn with Allah, and the creation or mercy? Those who accent and exile is in two ways, right? One is directed to Allah, meaning in Nevada, in worship, and that would look under Katara. And the other aspect is your son towards the creation, doing good to the creation? What is your son towards the creation?

00:21:28--> 00:21:35

It's in different ways. All right, first and foremost, good treatment, and generosity,

00:21:36--> 00:22:02

good treatment and generosity, whether it is through words or actions or through money, physically serving people, you know, whether they're old or dependent on you or they're sick, they're unwell. Likewise, through one's jet through one status, you know, once authority and position he shows his good towards others. So for example, because you have certain knowledge, or because you have a certain position in a company, and you pass on somebody's resume,

00:22:04--> 00:22:10

okay, so that they have an opportunity. You understand this is also a kind of your son.

00:22:12--> 00:22:18

Likewise, your son is to refrain from harming others refrain from hurting others, whether it is through words or through actions.

00:22:20--> 00:22:24

And thirdly, your son also includes being cheerful with people.

00:22:25--> 00:22:41

You know, one attitude is, I'm indifferent. I don't know who you are. I don't care about you. Yes, you just passed by me, but I didn't even notice you. So I'm not even going to greet you. Not going to smile at you. I don't care about you. Is this person

00:22:42--> 00:23:15

is the attitude of your son. No. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was the most busy person, wasn't he? And yet, there were times when when he would be walking, all of a sudden, a slave girl would come and just hold his hand and take him away. A little girl would just come and take him away to help her solve her problem. wasn't he? The one who would speak to children notice them and speak to them about what would interest those children like that little to have Eagles bird died. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked him about his bird. His bet.

00:23:16--> 00:23:19

This is being cheerful with people

00:23:20--> 00:23:33

caring for people. This is also a part of your son. Now Allah says what I see no, in Allah your heaven mercy, meaning you do Excel and Allah will love you.

00:23:35--> 00:23:36

Allah who will love you.

00:23:38--> 00:23:43

You see, there are certain people who we Okay, we dislike

00:23:44--> 00:23:49

retro, you just don't get along with them. Or there are certain things that we dislike.

00:23:50--> 00:23:54

But still do ersan with them. Why? To earn a lot of love.

00:23:56--> 00:23:57

How many of you like dogs?

00:23:58--> 00:24:04

Okay, I see only three hands. Okay, four. Why is it that you don't like dogs? The rest of you?

00:24:06--> 00:24:10

Those of you who don't like dogs? Why? Okay, they're scary. And

00:24:11--> 00:24:24

you're concerned about your Nana, Jessa and dog. I mean, from childhood, you know, the hatred of dogs has been instilled in our hearts. But do you remember that?

00:24:25--> 00:24:30

Hades in which we learned about the prostitute who fed the thirsty dog

00:24:32--> 00:24:34

and earn forgiveness?

00:24:36--> 00:24:42

You understand? So, I've seen you do your son, even to the dog that you hate.

00:24:43--> 00:24:45

To earn a love love

00:24:46--> 00:24:47

it this is a dog.

00:24:49--> 00:24:53

There are people whom we dislike or were angry with

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

because of whom we are hurt. We're very disappointed. We're frustrated with them. We've

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

had enough of them,

00:25:03--> 00:25:24

you know, due to them not because of them, because of Allah. And when you will do that, when you will overcome your difference with them, when you will overcome, you know your feelings towards them, you will earn a Muslim because you did good to them not because of them, but because of Allah.

00:25:27--> 00:26:03

Who has hurt you the most. And I tell everybody Tell me Somebody mentioned something, how somebody did this to them or if that to them, and I say make dua for them. I said, that's when you feel so much better. You mean the hurt goes away straightaway when you start making the law for that person, because the way he hurt offended you with His words with his actions, whatever it is, because you never know what you are doing to others. Yes. And I remember that. So clearly when the first time I tell anybody who mentioned something that somebody did to them, whether it was a neighbor with a friend, or even a stranger, as well for them, Allah guide them, it's a healing, doing your son to

00:26:03--> 00:26:05

others, heals you.

00:26:06--> 00:26:24

It will heal you. It will bring comfort to your heart. Because when somebody is hurt you and they've annoyed you, and they're frustrated you like literally to the max and you do a son to them, not because of them but because of Allah Tell me what what intention are you doing yourself?

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

allows pleasure, right? This action will be sincere.

00:26:31--> 00:26:39

Because generally when we are being good to others because they're being good and there is no issues, no problems, intentions, they can easily corrupted.

00:26:40--> 00:26:58

We say yeah, I'm doing this for a lot. But then we expect to thank you and we expect a smile and we expect a gift in return and isn't it we begin expecting from others but when you know that this person I cannot expect anything from them. If anything, I can only expect worse things from them.

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

So I say no, do Epson, it's the best healer. It will help you be patient. It will help you quickly get over the anger that you have in your heart. It will help you fulfill your obligations and your duties towards people

00:27:15--> 00:27:23

will accede to envy just in Allah hi your hibel Moxie clean. Indeed Allah loves those people who are just,

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

again, justice. It's difficult.

00:27:29--> 00:27:32

It's very difficult, because who is it that we are more inclined to?

00:27:33--> 00:27:34

Who

00:27:35--> 00:27:48

those whom we love, or those who agree with us or those who support us, but justice, fairness, this What does it mean? That you give to everybody the help that they deserve?

00:27:50--> 00:27:59

So the person who will overcome himself, his own preferences and likes and dislikes he will earn allows love in the law your hibou Moxie

00:28:00--> 00:28:40

firmest Docomo camula, calm faster p moolah home. In a law you have been with the pain as long as they uphold the treaty with you the terms of the treaty with you, you also uphold the terms of the treaty with them. Why? Because Allah loves those who fear Him. Allah loves those people who have Taqwa. Remember the context of this ayah the machine had certain pacts with the Muslims, right, but the wished again, it was well known, they're gonna go, they're gonna break their backs, they're gonna violate them. They're gonna violate the treaty, any second any moment. So when you cannot trust the other individual, and you're expecting only deceit from them, what do you want to do?

00:28:40--> 00:29:05

deceive them before they deceive you? You get the better of them before they get the better of you. You're tempted. But what does Allah say as long as they're upholding the terms of the treaty? You also uphold the terms of the treaty, you don't deceive them, just because you expect deceit from them. Why out of Allah sphere and when you will do that out of Allah sphere, then you will earn Allah's love.

00:29:07--> 00:29:11

So the one who deals with others with the fear of Allah

00:29:12--> 00:29:31

gives the other his help. Why? Because he's afraid of Allah. Then such a person will earn a loss love, in Allah, your head Buta babina, when you have been with a beheading, Indeed, Allah loves those who repent, and he loves those who purify themselves.

00:29:33--> 00:29:35

Do actions are mentioned over here doba and the hora

00:29:37--> 00:29:39

doba. What does it mean?

00:29:40--> 00:29:43

repentance. When does a person repent

00:29:44--> 00:29:47

when he's made a mistake. So

00:29:48--> 00:29:56

the web, remember that the web the web in it means cathedra Toba, the one who does a lot of the work

00:29:57--> 00:30:00

and if somebody is doing a lot of silver, what is

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

meat,

00:30:01--> 00:30:03

fish we have a lot of sin.

00:30:05--> 00:30:12

You understand? So in the law you have Buta ouabain. Allah loves those who repent. This means that Allah loves those who

00:30:14--> 00:30:16

those who sinned

00:30:18--> 00:30:20

and then repented to Allah

00:30:21--> 00:30:33

and then repented. Remember the condition also. Not just that if a person is committing a sin, He thinks he Allah loves me. No, you make a mistake, you commit a sin. And then when you do, Toba, Allah will love you.

00:30:34--> 00:30:39

What happens to us if somebody made a mistake? And they apologize even?

00:30:40--> 00:30:41

Do we love them?

00:30:42--> 00:30:43

Or does our love change?

00:30:45--> 00:30:45

changes, right?

00:30:47--> 00:30:52

We take so much time to overcome that hurt to really forgive them from our heart.

00:30:54--> 00:31:01

If somebody heard us for 50 days, we say give me at least 50 days. I know you've apologized, but give me I need time.

00:31:03--> 00:31:10

And then even though we get we claim that we've gotten over it, what happens? After another 50 days we mentioned what they've done.

00:31:12--> 00:31:15

We keep replaying those words in our head. Right?

00:31:16--> 00:31:17

Because we are people.

00:31:18--> 00:31:25

Only Allah is perfect. In the law, you hibbott the webbing, he loves those who repent.

00:31:27--> 00:31:45

And remember the conditions of Dawa, that it should be done purely for a lesyk that if a person is crying, you should not be crying to show off but rather to earn Allah's mercy, sincerely for Allah embarrassment and regret over the sin, and then refrain from the sin Leave it.

00:31:46--> 00:31:59

And then it should also be before death. So those who do towba Yes, mistakes happen. yesterday, today, tomorrow, today, one mistake, and another mistake, another mistake. But we cannot

00:32:02--> 00:32:03

always go back.

00:32:04--> 00:32:17

You heard that example recently. That was like making a U turn, that you're going in one direction you realize you're doing something wrong and just make a U turn, just go back, leave the sin and go back, realize you're going in the wrong direction.

00:32:18--> 00:32:29

Make a U turn, go back to Allah to wellbeing. And the more a person goes back to a lot more Allah loves him while you have one without a hearing. And Allah loves those who

00:32:30--> 00:32:42

are mutata hidden, who keep themselves clean, who try a lot to keep themselves clean, who exert a lot of effort to purify themselves. Is it difficult to claim?

00:32:45--> 00:32:47

So for example, cleaning the toilet bowl.

00:32:48--> 00:32:49

Is it easy?

00:32:51--> 00:32:53

If a child has peed on your carpet cleaning that

00:32:54--> 00:32:55

is it easy.

00:32:56--> 00:32:59

A child has what their bed

00:33:00--> 00:33:03

cleaning that? It's frustrating, right?

00:33:04--> 00:33:12

It's very upsetting. It's annoying, almost. You know, a guest comes over in your house and their child their diaper has leaked.

00:33:14--> 00:33:15

It's so annoying.

00:33:16--> 00:33:21

If your clothes got dirty, if you're holding a baby, and the diaper leaks on you,

00:33:22--> 00:33:27

and then you have to clean you did will do you're about to pray and then you break your will do.

00:33:28--> 00:33:29

Again you have to go to

00:33:30--> 00:33:32

again you have to go to

00:33:33--> 00:34:03

taking a loss. Also love ginebra What's the laughter menses, again, for some people, that's very difficult and for everybody. In fact, there are times when people find these acts of purification to be a burden. They find them difficult. But if a person remembers, I'm doing will do is going to love me. If I'm taking this bath as difficult as it is Allah is going to love me. Then what will happen, this action of the huddle will become

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

easier.

00:34:08--> 00:34:11

Many times we clean out of fear of people

00:34:12--> 00:34:19

whether it is our nails, or our clothes, our body, our house, our bed,

00:34:20--> 00:34:25

we say oh it's smelling so change it, freshen it up because guests have to come.

00:34:27--> 00:34:44

So when is that you do something out of fear of people, but the one who cleans himself, his body, his clothes, his home, his surroundings, his study, his desk, whatever. Seeking Allah's pleasure for him as well as love.

00:34:45--> 00:34:52

Because you see this act of purification. This is really a very private matter between you and unless

00:34:53--> 00:34:56

you know for example, some Natasha has fallen on your clothes, who knows?

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

Who knows? No person knows

00:35:00--> 00:35:08

Is your mother going to come and check? No, you're an adult, you're responsible for yourself. Your bed is dirty, your washroom flow is dirty,

00:35:09--> 00:35:22

who's going to check who's going to know you saw the adjuster fall you know better about that. So, when a person will maintain bahara, when a person will clean, he will do this truly out of the fear of a loss.

00:35:23--> 00:35:38

And when he will do this, seeking a loss of pleasure, he will earn a less love in the law, your habit and wellbeing, will you heaven without it. So you see, Toba and Paul are mentioned together, though by is to clean the heart.

00:35:39--> 00:35:46

Satan happened his guilt. Okay, get over it. Go back to a law don't overdo is too far leave the sin.

00:35:47--> 00:35:54

And taharah is cleaning the outward cleaning the body, home, the children, the workplace,

00:35:55--> 00:35:58

inside your house and outside the house, also.

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

inside the building and outside the building.

00:36:04--> 00:36:15

Sometimes it's said that when you look outside the building, you know sometimes when people have left clothes or some donation at the bin, there's literally things falling out, hanging out

00:36:17--> 00:36:22

hanging out, or somebody doesn't need their stroller and they've left it outside the building. Whose stroller is it?

00:36:23--> 00:36:25

What should the administration do?

00:36:26--> 00:36:41

They leave it for a few days. But do you realize how dirty it's looking? how messy it's looking? Whose is it? Who's going to claim it? If they throw it that's a problem. If they keep it that's a problem. If they leave it it's a problem. What do you do? how messy it looks. It's the house of Allah.

00:36:42--> 00:36:43

It's the house of Allah.

00:36:45--> 00:36:52

Allah loves those people who keep clean. And if we cannot keep the house of a law clean where we're coming to worship Him.

00:36:53--> 00:37:01

And what kind of love do we claim he loves those people who keep clean. Cleanliness brings allows love.

00:37:03--> 00:37:22

We'll call he and his statement call him contempt. There have been a law have had to be Rooney, your common law. Say, if you love Allah, then follow me. Meaning follow the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and what will happen? You have a common law Allah who love you. This is

00:37:23--> 00:37:32

the test that because everybody claims to love Allah, you ask anybody do you love God? Of course I do. Do you love Allah? Of course I do.

00:37:33--> 00:37:41

I'm children to adults, men, women, everybody will say that the most devout person and the most distant person from their religion everybody will claim that they love Allah.

00:37:42--> 00:37:47

But what matters is if he loves us back

00:37:48--> 00:38:33

this is what matters. And who is it that Allah loves your common law when this is a result of Fatima Rooney following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam following the sooner you have to eat anyway, eat the way he ate, you have to sleep anyway. Sleep the way he slept. Right? You have to you know do your work anyway. Do it the way he did. Start with the right to do it with the right hand and for this DVR, what will happen? Allah will love you. When is it that a person can follow the Sunnah when he loves the prophets of Allah. So you see, loving Allah servants also brings unless love

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

when a person loves Allah servants, those who are close to Allah.

00:38:39--> 00:39:15

Then this will also bring on Laszlo. And this is very logical. If you think about it, if you love your child, anyone who loves your child, you will appreciate them, isn't it? If you love your parents, and anyone who is respectful of your parents, you will appreciate them. So, Allah subhanaw taala loves his messenger sallallahu wasallam and the one who will follow the messenger Allah will love that person. The next if for Sophia delay will be combing your hair boom when you have buena.

00:39:17--> 00:39:21

Remember this is that oh you will believe anyone who turns away from the religion then

00:39:22--> 00:39:30

what will happen Allah will bring about another people whom he will love and they will love him. Allah will love them

00:39:32--> 00:39:56

and they will love Allah and what are their qualities? In the Quran? What do we learn the Latin islandwood meaning or is certain Allah, caffeine, humble towards the believers and firm with the disbelievers uj Duna. FISA beaten those who strive in the way of Allah Allah Hakuna Matata, who do not fear the criticism of the critics.

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

Such people who are affirming Allah zwei

00:40:00--> 00:40:26

Allah loves them. Walk only and a statement in Allah your humble Latina, ukata Luna feasability suffer unknown banana muscles. Indeed, Allah loves those people who fight in his way suffer in roles, unknown banana morsels as if they were a building a structure that is more source that is firmly joined together.

00:40:29--> 00:40:39

Meaning Allah Subhana tada loves that group, which is organized and united. Because rules What do they show? organization?

00:40:41--> 00:40:44

And, at the same time, unity, also banana muscles.

00:40:45--> 00:40:52

Because sometimes you can have rows, but there's big gaps in the middle. Why? Why should I move?

00:40:54--> 00:40:59

Why should I stand next to them? I don't like to be too close to people. I like my space.

00:41:00--> 00:41:13

Is that unity? No. So banyana muscles, what does it show? A group that is working together with Unity and in an organized fashion together as a team together as a team?

00:41:15--> 00:41:16

And when people work together?

00:41:18--> 00:41:29

Are there differences? Yes, but what did we learn earlier? That you give the other his help? You do assign towards them? You are just with them? Why?

00:41:30--> 00:41:40

Why? Because of a loss of hangover. So over here, what's the reason behind unity? What's the cause of unity? Being in the way of Allah?

00:41:41--> 00:42:13

You see doing anything for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala? What does it mean that a person is peace of Eden now that a person is in the way of Allah subhanaw taala. And whatever that action is, it requires effort, it requires courage, it requires sacrifice, it requires determination, it also requires unity, and this is jihad. Okay, now, what do you have this Jihad about? Which is in the battlefield? For that unity, organization, discipline, sacrifice, everything is required. But then there's you had us huddled so?

00:42:14--> 00:42:27

And what is that? Like, for example, praying together? Salah stuff? Is it necessary over there? Yes. Likewise, working together for the cause of Islam. Does that require unity, of course,

00:42:28--> 00:42:39

any good action, you need cooperation of others. And cooperation cannot come. unless everybody has the same focus.

00:42:41--> 00:42:47

Everybody has the same focus, because when you have the same focus the same goal, then you will overcome the differences.

00:42:48--> 00:43:16

You know, it's like when there's a wall, and there's bricks, each brick is a source of support for the other right? one brick cannot make a wall. And it cannot stay in its place. Unless there's a brick on it right and on its left beneath and above. Correct. And this is a team, one person cannot survive on his own, he needs the support and cooperation of others.

00:43:18--> 00:43:25

He needs it. Every person needs it. This is why jamara unity, togetherness.

00:43:27--> 00:43:47

Because when you work together, then you have the support of each other. And notice banana muscles. You know, when you have like two Brits that are together, what is cementing both of them some material, right? So when they are together, there's no gaps. It is a firm structure.

00:43:48--> 00:43:51

And when it will be firm. This means that nothing can between the two bricks.

00:43:53--> 00:44:06

Nothing can between the two bricks separating the bricks. And this is the connection between those who work for the causal muscle panels are their hearts are united. Yes, they will have differences. They will disagree.

00:44:08--> 00:44:22

But they won't cut off from each other. I don't know you and you don't know me and forget you And forget me. No. There's no third thing coming in the middle. They are together just like do bricks, they're together, do tiles, they're together.

00:44:26--> 00:44:59

They're together. And anything that comes in the middle, it has to be thrown away. Because if you give space to grudges, and enmity and they don't agree with me and I can't take their shooter and these differences when they come in, then what will happen gap Rift and when this rift will come, the structure will become loose. When it will become weak it will collapse. Holding hands. Is it easy. At the beginning it's easy, but then over time it becomes difficult

00:45:00--> 00:45:39

I remember once we went for Hajj and we saw a group of people, the women were all inside in the men head with a big circle around them, to protect their women, basically, so that they could all go for me together. And their women wouldn't be getting mixed up with the men, you understand, because in a big crowd, you could literally come between three, four or five men. How do you get away. So this is how they had, you know, protected their women. Now they were holding hands, one flag at the front and one flag at the back. So that in case anybody gets lost, they know where to come, where to find the group. But I was noticing how as they were going towards the demo, at the beginning was so nice

00:45:39--> 00:45:42

and comfortable. But over time, what happened,

00:45:43--> 00:45:51

the hands, you know, they really had to hold on tight, they really had to hold on tight, because of the grip was not tight,

00:45:52--> 00:45:54

they would let go of each other. And if they let go be together,

00:45:55--> 00:45:59

the structure is gone, the unity is gone, the group is going to disperse.

00:46:01--> 00:46:12

So yes, there are times when we get those pushes, and those shrubs and those difficulties, those trials, those tests, but keep holding on, don't let go.

00:46:14--> 00:46:28

So those who work for Alice, cause they're united, their friendship, their love does not end. And when this love when this friendship is strong, this cooperation will be there. And they will overcome their personal issues and such people whose love do they earn them

00:46:29--> 00:46:30

allows love?

00:46:31--> 00:46:35

What is our concern, I should not be in the bad books of any individual.

00:46:37--> 00:46:46

Right? If I'm working in a team, nobody should think bad about me. They thought bad about me. They don't agree with me. They don't give importance to my suggestion.

00:46:47--> 00:47:05

I don't like them anymore. I'm not going to work with them anymore. Our concern should not be people and their approval, rather whose approval allows approval. We'll call it he and his statement, well, who will afford What dude, and he is the Forgiving the loving,

00:47:06--> 00:47:11

forgiving, loving. Notice how both of these names are coming together.

00:47:14--> 00:47:17

And this is a big lesson for us.

00:47:18--> 00:47:36

Because when differences happen, we begin to hate each other and dislike each other and distance away. Well who want her photo dude, the food is who? Who hides away the sense. Remember the Hadees that I conceal your sense in the world and today I forgive them.

00:47:37--> 00:48:17

So, this is a landmark letter that in the dunya he hides away the sins he conceals them. And on the Day of Judgment, he will completely forgive his servant, we spend so much does he expose our sense does he know and if something is exposed, slightly, not even the whole picture, just a little bit is exposed in that is so much humiliation and disgrace, right? But even that is for a reason so that we can learn. Like remember once a thief he got caught. And he said, this is the first time I've ever stolen Please forgive me Please let me go. And a little bit over and he said no.

00:48:19--> 00:48:55

Not possible that this is the first time you stole and you got caught? No. Because when a person commits something wrong the first time Allah does not expose it, he gives him a chance. 1234 more and more chances. But when a person persists, then his son is exposed. Well, he's very, very forgiving. And he is alpha dude. He's loving when we do something wrong. Do people love us? No, they dislike us. And what do they talk about?

00:48:56--> 00:48:57

What do they talk about?

00:48:59--> 00:49:08

Exactly. They highlight our faults, they spread them. You know so many times on the internet you would learn warning against so and so refutation of so and so.

00:49:11--> 00:49:19

And these are people of knowledge, people who have served their communities for so long, just because they've made one mistake which is a mistake in your eyes.

00:49:21--> 00:49:28

What happens? articles and articles are written about them. Videos are made about them. And they're spread like wildfire.

00:49:29--> 00:49:40

There's no proper other that is observed and you wonder such a person with so much knowledge who has contributed so much to the community if they're attacked in this way.

00:49:41--> 00:49:42

But where are we?

00:49:44--> 00:49:50

If our mistakes ever got exposed, would people leave us with a spare us they would rip us apart.

00:49:51--> 00:49:52

Literally they would rip us apart.

00:49:54--> 00:49:58

Allah subhana wa Tada. He forgives and he loves

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

he

00:50:00--> 00:50:03

is the sense and yet he loves his servants.

00:50:04--> 00:50:09

Now all of these I am, what do they tell us? about Allah Subhana Allah,

00:50:10--> 00:50:13

that Allah loves, who?

00:50:14--> 00:50:25

Certain servants. Why? Because of their actions, whether those actions are of the heart of the tongue, or of the limbs, or through their wealth,

00:50:26--> 00:50:40

through their cooperation, whatever they are, he loves certain servants who have certain qualities. So, if we want, Allah's love, if we want to earn his love, then what do we need to do?

00:50:42--> 00:50:43

What do we need to do?

00:50:44--> 00:50:45

develop these qualities,

00:50:46--> 00:50:58

that tell me something, knowing that Allah loves these individuals with these qualities, and not knowing this fact? Is it the same?

00:50:59--> 00:51:08

Is it the same? No, believing that Allah loves? Is it the same as believing that Allah does not love?

00:51:09--> 00:51:11

No way, there's a huge difference.

00:51:13--> 00:51:26

So this is the reason why it has been proven over here that Allah loves his servants. What's the impact of this belief, believing in the attribute of muhabba for Allah subhanaw taala. What's the impact of this belief

00:51:27--> 00:51:57

increases our action. So for example, in the first day, we learned that he loves those who do exam. So this is a motivation to do exam. Because what happens every day, we get hurt, we get annoyed, we get disappointed, we get frustrated, and we just want to quit. No, I quit. I've had it. I've had enough. But when you learn in a law, you're humbled, Marcin, it's a motivation to do yourself, to keep going to keep struggling to keep striving.

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

As

00:51:59--> 00:52:29

I was thinking, we cannot really be achieved without knowing truly that Allah loves. Because love is part of being an app. You know, the first day in our class, you described that a Baba has these three pillars. So muhabba is part of that. And we cannot do marhaba until and unless we know that Allah subhanaw taala loves us. Because that love is fulfilling, right when you know, when you have this hope that you will be loved in return. Otherwise, if you're always in the giving and giving and giving, and then there is no motivation over there.

00:52:30--> 00:53:17

So Buddha servitude comes with this belief that Allah is loving. If I do this, or Avada, Allah will love me. So there is motivation to do one. Another impact is that it makes you confident before people knowing that when I will adhere to these matters, when I will fulfill my duty as a servant, I will earn a lot of love. This will give you confidence. This will make you fearless before people because why is it that we don't do certain things out of fear of people? What will she say? What will they say? How can I do this? Nobody does this. But when you're doing something good, even though it may be very strange, in a certain place before certain people, you're doing it because you

00:53:17--> 00:53:50

want to earn a lot of love. This will give you all the confidence you need. Because in a lie your head will monoterpene he loves those people who have done likewise, this belief it makes difficult things easy, leaving a sin a sin which has become a habit which you find fun and enjoyable. Leaving that is it easy. Think about it. If you develop the habit of you know doing something and you of course, why is it a habit because you like it, but leaving that

00:53:51--> 00:54:01

completely abandoning it. It's not easy. But when you find out that when you will do Toba from this you will earn a less love than leaving it becomes easy.

00:54:03--> 00:54:49

Whoever leaves anything for the sake of Allah Allah will replace it with something better. Remember the companions who had so much alcohol? Who were addicted to alcohol? What happened? They left it so easily. Yes, some struggled but majority of them. What did they do to spat it out? They threw it they wasted it. Because when a person wants a loss love when he realizes that he can get a loss of love, then difficult things become easy. The hora it's difficult when you have to clean that carpet. Oh my. It's not easy. absorb everything, touch it with your hands and then pour water and then absorb it and then pour water and then absorb it. It's a long process and then smell it and then

00:54:49--> 00:54:59

touch it to make sure it's clean enough to prey on. It becomes easy. Just a mean he writes. When you wash your filter from your garment, you should sense that our

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

Love loves you, because he loves those who purify themselves. If you perform will do, you should sense that Allah loves you, because you have purified yourself. If you perform the whistle, you should sense that Allah loves you, because Allah loves those who purify themselves, the harder becomes easy then likewise doing your son, it's difficult, but it becomes easy. Another impact of this belief is that when a person believes that Allah loves, then this belief will protect him from innovation, from extremism from neglecting, because in order to earn a love, love, what do you have to follow the sun, when you will follow the Sunnah to earn a love love, you will find the sun not to

00:55:46--> 00:55:47

be complete,

00:55:48--> 00:55:55

you will find the sun not to be the best, you don't need to add anything. And you would not want to leave anything.

00:55:56--> 00:56:26

This belief makes a person firm upon the center, which is the way to success, that it gives you a sense of protection, a sense of security, that even though you feel alone, and you feel like nobody is with you, nobody understands you, nobody understands your struggles. People might be supporting you in the outward but you sense that they're not really with you on something, but to have this realization that if I do this good alone would love me, this will give you confidence and security and

00:56:28--> 00:56:29

so much reassurance.

00:56:30--> 00:56:48

Generally cleaning is something that is not liked, is it by for example, if a place has to be prepared, and somebody is given the task, you know, you prepare the food, and other person has been given the task, you go do all the shopping and you're given the task, you do all the cleaning.

00:56:49--> 00:56:50

What will you say?

00:56:51--> 00:56:53

Why me? Am I the only one left?

00:56:54--> 00:56:55

Higher cleaner.

00:56:57--> 00:57:04

But unless the panels are ordered, Ibrahim racism is my earliest and I'm at clean my house.

00:57:05--> 00:57:14

It's the most difficult to secure volunteers for cleaning purposes. Right? But you know, that when somebody is doing that job,

00:57:15--> 00:57:29

and they really into that job, and you go into the washroom on a busy day and it's clean, you know, in certain events, you see that Michelle, the washrooms the papers or the floors are dry, what happens you from your heart, you are grateful to those people.

00:57:30--> 00:57:32

The lady who used to clean the mustard.

00:57:33--> 00:58:06

I was thinking that it's like you're in like sometimes you are in a in a situation where to see people are talking and you're kind of new and you're excluded. So how bad do you feel you feel left out? But once you discover that Allah will love you no matter what if you're doing the way you he's asked you to do stuff like with being a human being you get a Robin, you know, do Toba. So you have this confidence. I'm in you know, army steam. So what more do you want for that?

00:58:07--> 00:58:45

And, you know, children, what's one of the first things that they need love, this reassurance that, you know, someone loves me, my parents love me. And this is what gives the child confidence and a sense of security, he feels safe, he has a safe environment where he can discover he can do he can say, he can play he can relax. This is a need. This is a need. Because when you feel that you sense that you're not loved, you feel very insecure. But if a person has this sense, this feeling that Allah loves me,

00:58:46--> 00:59:34

when I will do this action and this action and this action. You see how emotionally satisfied he will be? Why is it that we are emotionally you know, hungry? weak. We're, you know, arguing with others and getting upset and offended and being so touchy. Why? Because our need of love, you know, that's not being fulfilled. Because we are expecting love from people expect love from whom Allah soprano. This love is believing in this that Allah loves the servants it keeps a person firm upon Islam keeps him from abundance, love. And this love also brings unity. Having this belief that Allah loves I can earn his love. If I do this, I will get his log. This is what brings unity. It helps

00:59:34--> 00:59:59

maintain good relationships. It helps you get over issues quickly. It helps you work for a greater cause together, it helps you overlook the faults in others. So there's a huge difference. Believing in this type of Allah and not believing in the server brings a huge difference in the state of the heart, the actions of a person, his relationships, everything gets affected by this

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

Now remember that love is something natural. We will love people we will love things. We will love Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said about what digital deliver and how that produces to him.

01:00:13--> 01:00:20

I was provided with her love. So love is also risk. Its provision.

01:00:21--> 01:00:38

It's a gift that Allah gives to his servants, zucchini and Ignacio Boucher. Right? This herb is there, it's natural. And it's not something that a person has full control over? Or is it? You have control over this?

01:00:39--> 01:00:42

You know, like, if a person loves a particular thing,

01:00:43--> 01:01:03

like a phone, he has a phone already. I love this phone. I can't afford it. If I have to get it, I have to drive an hour away, what will happen? They'll go they're trying to control that love, resist that urge, but it's just not going away. It pulls you doesn't it? So it's not something that you have full control over.

01:01:04--> 01:01:39

Sometimes you can control it and sometimes it's out of control. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, you know when he was dividing his time between his wives that Yeah, I love this is my division, you know, this is this is the best that I can do. Do not ask me about what I have no control over hitting the state of his art. You cannot have the same feelings for each individual. But at the same time, we know that a believer he loves a lot the most more than their spouse and more than their children and more than their work and more than themselves more than their money and their career. They love Allah soprano.

01:01:40--> 01:02:21

Like the prophets of a lot of them, he loved his family, but and he would be with them. But when the time for prayer came, he became a stranger. Right? So how is it that we can develop love for Allah soprano. I mean, here we learned that Allah loves his servants, if you do this, Allah will love you. But I want to increase in my love for Allah. Because that love is most fulfilling, right? When you love the other and the other loves you. Otherwise it becomes pain and torture. Like remember Rita. When she got her freedom. She was a slave, right? When she got her freedom, she decided to leave her husband. And he would walk after her crying begging her Please don't leave me. I love you Don't

01:02:21--> 01:02:39

leave me so much so that the prophets Allah said and requested her, stay with him, come on, you know, get the poor guy. She said, Is this your command? Or is it a request? A request? It's a suggestion. So then what did she do? She didn't accept that suggestion.

01:02:40--> 01:02:59

And this was so much torture for that man, that you love someone but they don't love you. They don't love you. So, when we do these actions, Allah will love us. But we want to increase our love for our last panel title. Also, how do we increase that love? First of all?

01:03:00--> 01:03:06

Okay, good. Make the law. And when is it that you love someone? Think about someone whom you love.

01:03:07--> 01:03:25

Know, think about someone you love. Why do you love them? Okay, you know about them? Like, for example, those of you who are married your husband when you didn't know him? I don't know. Who is he? His name is this. What does he do? I've been told he does this. Have you met him? Yeah, I met him once. But then what happens after marriage?

01:03:26--> 01:03:45

Right, with knowledge. Okay. How else does love increase? Okay, spending time with them? And how do you develop love for someone? This is my question. How do you Why do you love somebody? What makes you love them?

01:03:48--> 01:04:32

If they've done what you like, okay, and, okay, they have good qualities. Okay, you have the same goal. You get along, when they know they love you. But sometimes, you know somebody loves you, but you can't get yourself to like them. The thing is that when you realize someone is good to you, they're sincere to you. They want the best for you. And you experience that as you spend time with them. Each day you realize that they really want the best for you. You know, if they pushed you in a certain direction. It's not because they hate you. It's because they want the best for you. Then what happens? You grow in your appreciation, and you begin to love them. When they're generous to

01:04:32--> 01:04:38

you. When they're shown favorite to you and the more you realize their favors the more you begin to love them. shock,

01:04:39--> 01:04:59

realization or favor, gratitude and the next step is love. This is why the head Buta have the right. give gifts and increase love. Because when someone is generous to you, it's only natural that you begin to love them. And this is why many times people they try to eat

01:05:00--> 01:05:07

earn the love of other people by giving them one gift after the other, hopefully this will convince them and hopefully this will make them love me.

01:05:08--> 01:05:13

So think about it What? What has Allah given to you?

01:05:15--> 01:05:16

Why am I becoming

01:05:19--> 01:05:32

everything? Anybody you love any person in your life who gave that to you, Allah. See, what is Allah your son on you remember his ears and on you and you will increase in your love for him.

01:05:34--> 01:06:27

Secondly, another thing that can help us develop more love for our last panel data increase and that love is doing that which Allah loves meaning if you force yourself to obey Him, Allah will bless you. He will gift you with that sweetness and that pleasure. And when you will have that sweetness you know that pleasure in doing good. This will definitely produce love for Allah. Allah will provide you with that love and remembering Allah, increasing in remembrance. In this we learned the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, A Hubble Kalani in Allahu Akbar, a Hubble canal in a light Arbor, forwards, our most beloved to Allah Subhan Allah Alhamdulillah wa la ilaha illAllah Allahu Akbar.

01:06:29--> 01:06:44

So when a person will say these words, why because Allah loves them. I imagine if Allah loves you, saying those words want to gift you with more love? Wouldn't he make you happy in your heart? Won't he bring you satisfaction?

01:06:46--> 01:06:49

And when that will happen, naturally he will grow in your love for Allah.

01:06:51--> 01:07:24

This is why the prophets Allah has found joy and happiness in worshiping Allah, in remembering Allah, if Allah akuna than shockula the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Were I to say Subhana Allah He 100 Allah He was either in Allahu Allahu Aqua. This is more beloved to me, than anything on which the sun rises. When the sun rises, its light reaches what everything. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, saying these words is more beloved to me than anything on this earth basically.

01:07:26--> 01:07:34

Because when you remember Allah, Allah loves that. And when Allah loves that, he will reward you for that.

01:07:35--> 01:07:54

How, with satisfaction and happiness, and when you will experience happiness and joy in the worship of Allah, then this will grow you in your love for Allah, what do we wait for? When I love him, then I will do the good. When I love him, then I will do more. You know, start a ladder and love God come.

01:07:56--> 01:07:57

Start Vicar and love will come.

01:07:59--> 01:08:25

Once a man he came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he said O Messenger of Allah. I praised My Lord, meaning I praised a line my poetry. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Amma in a humble humble human Lord loves praise. If you praise your Lord, He loves that. So when he loves you to praise him, he's happy with that he will reward you

01:08:27--> 01:08:28

and when he will reward you

01:08:29--> 01:09:15

that you will naturally increase in love for Allah, ma'am and Shay and I have been in alignment and there is nothing more beloved to Allah than praise. The more you praise Him, the more you will love him. The next section is his battle affirmation of dystrophy, describing him with meaning is safer off Bellarmine with mercy will muffler and forgiveness upon arrival with Allah meaning affirming the attributes of mercy and forgiveness for Allah subhanaw taala does Allah possess these attributes? Yes, he does. Where do we learn that he possesses these attributes right at the beginning of the Quran, we'll call he and his statement Bismillahirrahmanirrahim through the Fatiha begins with that

01:09:15--> 01:09:59

the Quran begins with Bismillah. And in Bismillah, what is mentioned of Rahman Al Rahim, two names are mentioned, which tell us about Allah's mercy. So the first introduction that you have, that you get about a loss of personal data from the book of Allah is what that He is merciful. how merciful or human, more merciful than you can imagine. Or Rahim, His mercy affects you in every way, because remember that Rockman is safer. And Rahim chose the fair action. It's because of his mercy that you live. It's because of his mercy that you have so many blessings you're saved from disasters problems are solved for you. You earn forgiveness.

01:10:00--> 01:10:49

It's all because of his mercy. Rob Burnett was here at a cola Shea alignment and we're in our Lord you have encompassed everything in mercy and knowledge, meaning everything is benefiting from Allah's mercy. It is affecting everything. Man jinn Angel, everything is receiving Allah's mercy and what you have encompassed everything in knowledge meaning everything is known to Allah as well. What can have been what meaning are Hema and he is ever towards the believers merciful? We learned ramen earlier and here we learn Rahim Rahman Rahim came together and over here what our aim is coming separately what can available many not our Hema He is merciful towards the believers. What does it

01:10:49--> 01:11:41

mean that that there's some special mercy which is only for who the believers are? The name of a lot of men What does that imply? Rama, Rama general mercy. And Rahim implies Rama pasa special, special mercy for every creature there is Rama Rama Okay, Mercy by which the body you know benefits it's betania it's the only way it's with respect to the matters of this world. It's limited to this world, but the believer is given more special greater mercy. What kind of mean are Hema What does that show that the believer is receiving in addition to the general mercy, more mercy, special mercy greater mercy and what is that mercy of a man have been of

01:11:43--> 01:11:45

what it was the heart

01:11:46--> 01:12:00

and my mercy encompasses everything. Gotta borrow bukem Allah NFC Allah, your Lord has decreed upon himself mercy, cassava, what does it mean? Whatever that he has made where

01:12:01--> 01:12:25

he has made it mandatory on himself that he is going to be merciful, meaning he surely is merciful, not no doubt about that. And if he was not merciful, then not a single creature would be living on planet Earth right now. If there's anything living anything surviving, it's because of Allah's mercy, because he gave life he created if he wanted, he would not have created

01:12:27--> 01:12:34

and he created he gave life in a Muslim. Right? Not that as soon as a person since has finished.

01:12:36--> 01:12:42

Insert Mario What do we learn that the statement of schilke is so severe, that the cat is similar to

01:12:43--> 01:13:18

that the skies would rent asunder and the mountains and the earth or there would be so much devastation, so much devastation, however, because of Allah's mercy, what happens? Allah lets people live. Remember, we learned about your other company, so much so that a lot lets people do what they want. Even though it is something that a lot of tests that Allah hates, he dislikes, whether you're Bali or a bad deal, he does not like go for for his servants or does he? He doesn't, but does he let them

01:13:19--> 01:13:55

wahoo who will have food over him? And he is the Forgiving, the Merciful. And these names of Allah food Rahim. They appear repeatedly in the Quran together. Allah food is forgiving Rahim is merciful. So it means that the repenting sinner, what will he earned? A hammer, Allah's mercy? Allah subhanaw taala is just, but in addition to being just he's also merciful. What does justice necessitate demand punishment? Right that if someone has done wrong, they should be punished. That's fair. That's justice.

01:13:56--> 01:14:09

Right? But Allah does not deal with his servants in that way. He is just in the sense that if a person has wronged, you will face the consequences. But there's also the option of though,

01:14:10--> 01:14:59

right, there's also the option of is the Father, so he is of a fool. And then, on top of that, he is also Rahim. Because when a person does something wrong, are there consequences? Yes, there are consequences. But because he is Rahim, he protects the person from the consequences of the sense that the servant has committed himself before and Rahim so much so that Allah you bet did a long say at him, Hasina. He changes their sins into good deeds. When he forgives the servant he changes the sins of that servant into good. Just imagine a person commits a sin for 50 days. And he sincerely asks a love of forgiveness. Remember the man who committed 100 murders

01:15:00--> 01:15:47

And then what happened with his tilba here and Atlas molfetta and Rama and Rama a life of sin of Kufa of Sheikh and a person does Toba. He testifies that there is no god worthy of worship but Allah and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is His Messenger, he does Toba and what happens? his sins are converted into good deeds. Follow how you don't have failed Ah, wah wah wah Rahimi, Allah is the best protector, and He is the Most Merciful of those who showed mercy. Who said this, jacobellis. He said this Renaissance, right when they were saying yeah, we will protect Vinnie, I mean, let him go with us because otherwise we're not going to get any food from Egypt. So what did he say? Allah is

01:15:47--> 01:15:49

the best protector. What can you do?

01:15:51--> 01:15:56

And He is the Most Merciful of those who showed mercy. Do people show mercy?

01:15:57--> 01:16:05

Yes, they do not say sometimes they do. Mothers, they show mercy with jalapeno kumada tell

01:16:06--> 01:16:18

between the husband and wife, Allah has placed in their hearts love and mercy. So they show affection to each other, they are kind to each other. Yes, there are times when they're not kind. But there are times when they're kind also.

01:16:19--> 01:16:21

And we hope that that's the case majority of the time.

01:16:23--> 01:16:27

But think about it, anyone who's been very kind to you.

01:16:28--> 01:16:31

You know, sometimes you see a child misbehaving so much.

01:16:33--> 01:16:35

And the teacher is dealing with that child. So

01:16:36--> 01:16:43

in such a gentle way so patiently and you wonder, I was in her position, I would have done something already.

01:16:45--> 01:17:04

And then you are amazed at how can this person could be how much kindness how much affection they have, you're amazed and you have so much respect for them. So much respect for them. Now, imagine the mercy that people have for each other, that animals show to their young.

01:17:05--> 01:17:06

How much mercy they show.

01:17:08--> 01:17:35

You know, sometimes, when animals they give birth, the mother, how exhausted she is how hungry she is. And she's all by herself. And yet she will even give her life to protect her children. All the mercy that the creation sure to each other, put it on one side. And Allah's mercy, put that against him whose mercy would be greater, have less mercy because he's

01:17:37--> 01:18:02

most Merciful of those who show mercy and in fact of the creation, if the creatures do show mercy to each other, that is also because of whose mercy Allah has mercy is one part that he is distributed amongst his creatures, that they show affection to each other. So does Allah possess the attribute of karma? Of course, why do we have to prove this, that Allah possesses mercy? That Allah has Rama, he shows?

01:18:03--> 01:18:06

Because there are people who don't believe in that?

01:18:07--> 01:18:32

Right? who say that? Yes, he is a man he is under him, but doesn't mean anything. And what is that thing? to abandon the meaning to abandon the attribute? The people of telltale, they say that the intellect does not accept that God is merciful. Because why is there so much evil? You understand? So they'll say, well, because of all these reasons, logically, doesn't make sense that God should be merciful. So we don't believe. Likewise, there's some people who do.

01:18:33--> 01:19:00

And they say that Mercy is weakness. Because when you're showing mercy, you're being soft, and kind and weak, before the other. And this is weakness, and God is above any weakness. So when you're talking about Rama for Allah, that doesn't mean mercy as we understand mercy just means he shows favours, he gives gifts to his servants, he gives an airman

01:19:01--> 01:19:33

he does airson they basically isolate the attribute of mercy from him. They say yes, he shows favours doesn't mean that he feels mercy. He shows mercy. You understand this separate the sci fi drama from him. Now, when there's so many I at that show that Allah has mercy, he shows mercy. Remember that we are no one's to judge what fits him and what does not fit him. If he has described himself in a particular way with a particular attribute, then we don't say, Oh, this doesn't fit him or this buffets and no one knows of them.

01:19:34--> 01:20:00

And secondly, remember that Allah is merciful and people also show mercy and that is because of Allah's mercy. But again, Lisa cometh leash I don't like and his attributes with the attributes of the creation and think about it if for the sake of argument if you say that okay, Rama Allah does not possess that doesn't make sense. Why is that even acceptable? How can a person believe

01:20:00--> 01:20:03

In a God that does not show mercy. If you ask any person

01:20:05--> 01:20:07

What do you want? I want mercy.

01:20:08--> 01:20:50

Alright, this is what people want God's mercy, any religion, they're seeking God's mercy. That's what they want. If a person has anything in life, what does he say? It's Allah's mercy on me. God's mercy on me reign is mercy money is mercy, children, I mean, so many things, their expressions of Allah's mercy. So how do we refute the claim of such people, that first of all, through the slim, through surrender, that if we say, Okay, if your intellect doesn't accept it, it doesn't make sense to you. It doesn't understand that Allah has mercy, then just surrender to the texts 100 of these, if that shows so clearly that Allah

01:20:51--> 01:21:10

shows mercy. And secondly, we say that the fact is that it does make sense logically, that God would be merciful, that Allah is merciful. How, how does it make sense logically that Allah is merciful? Well, the first objection, if he's merciful, how come there's so much evil?

01:21:11--> 01:21:14

You know, the answer to that? What is the answer?

01:21:15--> 01:21:37

In evil, there is good. And if there is evil, that doesn't mean that he likes it, he is allowed it for a reason. And you see, there's a person whose child is unwell and he takes the child. This is an extreme example, a very common example, when you take your seven day old boy to the doctor, for circumcision, he let the child scream and cry and bleed.

01:21:39--> 01:22:08

Why? Because it's necessary. You let the doctor give the child one shot after the other child is born and instantly, he's given an injection. He's given his vaccination first vaccination, right? He's given vitamin K or something, right? And then later on, every few months, every few years, the child is screaming, he's terrified. But why is it that you hand over the child to the doctor, to the nurse? Why? Because you're doing it.

01:22:09--> 01:22:36

You want to save the child, you want to protect the child. So the intellect definitely proves that God is merciful. And there's no doubt in that. What's the impact of this belief? When a person believes that Allah is merciful, he shows mercy, then what effect does it have on you? Okay, peace, hope, you can never despair. No matter what happens you can never despair. Because you can always hope and Allah's mercy,
