Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Muhammad Ali Al Karim Amma vert for the wilhemina shavon rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman Rahim rubbish Radley Saturday where Sidley MD Dr. Melissa Nia Coco Lee, urbanization Arima Allahumma salli ala Muhammad wa ala early Muhammad in canossa. Later either Ibrahima or Allah it brought him in hamidah Majeed Allahumma barik Allah Mohammed in early Mohammedan Camacho, Dr. Ibrahim Ibrahim in Naka, hamidah Majeed, bourbon humble Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam minute Eman chapter. Love for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a part of Eman, mineral Eman? It is from Eman. So part of Eman is to love the Prophet sallallahu

00:00:56--> 00:01:22

alayhi wa sallam had done a Boolean Monte Carlo Barona sherborn parlor had the Santa abbazia di Anil Raji I'd be hooray Tata radi Allahu anhu and the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a call for one leadin fcba de la umino a hadoken had akuna Habiba la humanware li D. Well, Willa de

00:01:23--> 00:02:13

from now on inshallah, I will not translate the chain, okay, because it's quite understood what a foreigner means. What about a new means what are unknown means we will go directly to the text unless there's something specific about the chain which I want to mention to you. Okay? So for one lady, for our lady, so by the one who neph See, my soul, bi d is in his hand, by the one in whose hand is my soul? Who is he? Allah subhanaw taala it's another way of swearing by Allah. So for one Medina fcba de la, you may know how to come, none of you can believe had until akuna I become a habit la most beloved to him, mutuality he then his father, well, well as he and his son and his

00:02:13--> 00:02:50

child. None of you can truly believe until I am more beloved to him than his father and his children. The second Hadees is also very similar. So we will read that and inshallah together we will look at the hotties. How does an eye aku Baba Ibrahim Allah had done have not really yet. On Abdullah Aziza Musa haven unasyn an individual Allahu alayhi wa sallam in her own head does an Adam what does that mean that you're going back to a beginning of a new chain? Right, so a new chain Mr. Bahari is mentioning now. And he's taking it from who

00:02:51--> 00:03:41

are the headers in a Sherpa to Anca data and NSN are called an abuse Oliver Who are you Salama, let me know I hadoken had akuna Hubba la Manuela de Walla de when nursey Marine la you know hadoken none of you can truly believe had an akuna hub la until I become the most beloved to him. Then who mean why did he his father well it he and his children when nasty ultramarine and people altogether meaning all of mankind. Both of these are Hades, what do they show to us? The importance rather the obligation of loving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because without loving the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. A person's Eman is incomplete. It is incomplete. We don't say it's invalid but

00:03:41--> 00:04:09

rather it is not our high level. Because remember, email increases and decreases love for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam complete and perfect once. Amen. And what kind of love should a person have for the Messenger of Allah, such love that is more than love for anyone else? Love for everyone and anyone else? such love is what completes one's email. If you think about it, the most beloved of people who a person is who,

00:04:11--> 00:04:50

first of all himself, isn't it? Because people prefer themselves over everybody else. They give importance to themselves above everyone else. Yes, there are rare times in which people will prefer other people over themselves. But generally, people are selfish. They're concerned most about themselves, then after oneself, who does a person like his parents, his children, and then somebody else or among people, whether it's friends or relatives or neighbors or class fellows or whoever. Now in this Hadees What do we learn that condition for the completeness of one's Eman is that his love for the Prophet sort of autism should be more than the love for anyone else, including oneself

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

including one's parents, including one's children even including anyone else, any human being. And we see in these bodies that the Father is made.

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

Before the child, why do you think so? Because everyone has parents, but not everyone has children. So if somebody can say, Oh, I don't know how it is to love your children, well definitely you know how it is to love your parents, everyone has parents, but everyone does not have children. And then we see that the children have been mentioned before all mankind. Why? Because the love that one has for his children, is much more than the love that he can have for anyone else. The way you love your child, you cannot love any other person like that, generally. So, in this Hadees we learn that loving the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is more important than loving who your own family. Why do you

00:05:44--> 00:05:51

think so? Why is it necessary? Why is it important to love the Prophet sallallahu Sallam more than you love your own family?

00:05:52--> 00:06:23

Remember the ayah that NBU Allah will in Medina mean and foresee him that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is more sincere, he is closer to the believers then even themselves being the way he cares the way he had concerned for people, people don't even have that much concern for themselves. Because love is what helps you obey someone. If you love someone, it's much easier to be but if you don't love them, it's very difficult to obey. So this is why loving the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is important.

00:06:24--> 00:06:55

And if you think about it, why would you love someone? For example? Why do you love your parents, because of their great favours on you? Because they have taken care of you they spend money on you, they put in so much effort to look after you. They've done a lot for you. Similarly, your children, why would you love them? Because they make you very happy? Isn't it? They make you happy? So someone who cares for you, someone who makes you happy? You love them? Now, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam? What has he done for us? What favor has he done to us?

00:06:56--> 00:07:12

If he did not come? If he did not convey the message? Would we know what a man is? What we know what the Quran is? Would we know what the deen is? No. Would we know the difference between good and bad? No. So his exam upon us is the greatest.

00:07:13--> 00:07:57

our parents, our family, they take care of us how in the material sense, they will look after our health. They will look after our financial well being our physical well being. But the prophets are a lot of sudden he looked after us in what way for our era, our spiritual well being. If he did not convey the message, if he did not teach us what he taught, then what would we be? Even if we were perfectly healthy in our bodies, and we had everything that we needed in this world? Would we be successful in this world in the era? No, we would not be. So this is why loving the prophets of Allah Selim is essential, because his favorite to us is the greatest. Think about it. Anytime, you

00:07:57--> 00:08:32

know, you're going through some difficulty. And you think about patience, that I should be patient right now. Because Allah Subhana Allah will reward me. Anytime you are encouraged to forgive someone, you are encouraged to do a good deed, anything at all? Where did that come from? What's the source? How did it get to you through the prophets of Allah? And if you think about all the hardships that he undertook, in order to convey this message to us, if you study the seed of the profits of of artisan, and what does that reflect how much hardship he went through, we learned about how much difficult that was for him to even take the war he even that would cause so much

00:08:32--> 00:08:40

physical strain on him, let alone the opposition that he faced from the people. So his son is truly the greatest on us.

00:08:41--> 00:08:58

On the day of judgment, every person will be saying I've seen I've seen and the prophets are a lot of them you'll be concerned about who is oma that there'll be people coming to Him To drink from the house, and they will be stopped and he will say that why are they being stopped? Just imagine how much concern he has for his nation for his oma.

00:08:59--> 00:09:24

And this is why we see that love for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is what completes and perfect once a man this is what shows that a person truly has a man because without a man a person cannot love the messenger. Other people when you love them, there is immediate benefit or it's easier to love them because you see them. But the profits are alone isn't when can you love him? When you love your deen when you love Islam, only then can you love him.

00:09:25--> 00:09:59

Around the Day of Judgment, the prophets or vajrasana will also intercede for people that we see that love for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has to be more than the loved one has for his family. Because in this world, sometimes your family members even you know they tell you to do something wrong, or they're not as concerned for you. Sometimes parents say to their children to Sorry, I can't help you. You're on your own now. Similarly, children sometimes they don't help their parents. People abandon you, they're not as sincere to you. But we see that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his son was the greatest honors because he was always sincere to us. Always sincere to us.

00:10:00--> 00:10:29

If you think about it in any aspect of our lives, we can follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, whether it's eating, or it is looking after a patient, you know washing your hands before attending to them, or it is speaking to a stranger nicely in a welcoming way smiling at them. any aspect of your life you can follow the sooner and whose love can you earn the love of Allah subhanaw taala. Just imagine, he showed us every way through which we could earn the pleasure of Allah soprano.

00:10:31--> 00:10:44

This is the huge favor that he did for us. And he also loved his oma. You know, sometimes when you think about it, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam offered a sacrifice on behalf of his entire Ummah, don't you feel so special?

00:10:45--> 00:10:54

That just think about it? On behalf of me on behalf of you. He didn't even know who you and I were, but he slaughtered an animal on our behalf.

00:10:56--> 00:11:02

What does that show that he loved us that he cared for us. So he only deserves that we must also love him.

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

That love cannot come without knowledge. Right? You can only love someone whom you know, if you don't know the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you cannot love him.

00:11:12--> 00:11:55

But we see that his flock was the best. The best of luck in Nicola Hello, Elaine. And someone who has the best of luck, he deserves to be loved. So through so many incidents in the profits or loss of one's life, would show that he was very concerned for his own. He loved his oma. And he did everything that was within his capacity to convey the message to us in the best way. And he underwent physical hardship he underwent social boycott as well he underwent countless difficulties to convey the message to us. This is why it is only correct that we love him. And we see that or model to learn him. Once he told the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that you are more beloved to me than

00:11:55--> 00:11:57

everything except for myself.

00:11:58--> 00:12:05

So what did the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said no, by the one in whose hand is my soul until I become more beloved to you than even yourself?

00:12:06--> 00:12:18

So remember, the learner thought for a moment and he said, Now you are by a lot more beloved to me than even my own self and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Yes, now, that is true. That is complete.

00:12:19--> 00:12:43

You have to love him more than yourself. How can you evaluate whether you actually exactly I was just going to come to that? That How can a person do this, that love for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is more than love for anyone else, even oneself? And how does a person get there? What's the sign of this? First of all, as we know that the more a person knows the Prophet salallahu salam, the more you will love him.

00:12:44--> 00:12:48

So one of the ways of increasing your love for the Prophet is what?

00:12:50--> 00:12:54

Study learn what, just Sierra, alter Hades

00:12:56--> 00:12:59

alter the words of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his actions,

00:13:01--> 00:13:05

his circumstances. That is one of the ways of increasing your love for the profits on.

00:13:07--> 00:13:14

Another is that the more a person follows The sooner, the more he will love the profits.

00:13:15--> 00:13:59

Because when you will follow, the sooner you will see the benefits, you will feel good, you will feel good in the sense that you will really feel that every action that you're doing is worth something. Every action seems meaningful, seems important. Like for example, we learned about food, giving food to other people. Perhaps we had that before as well. But now all of a sudden, cooking is different, isn't it so it's become more meaningful? It's become more enjoyable, isn't it? So the more a person follows the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, the more he will love him. Why? Because he will feel good about the actions that he's doing. Similarly, we see that the more a

00:13:59--> 00:14:13

person gives importance to the words of the prophets that allowed him to the commands of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam The more he obeys him, the more he prefers him over his own desires. That is a sign that a person loves the Prophet sallallahu Salah.

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

And we need to keep questioning ourselves, keep asking ourselves

00:14:20--> 00:14:26

that, do I really love the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as much as I love my own parents or my own children?

00:14:27--> 00:14:39

Am I concerned for him as much as I am concerned for my parents and children? Am I protective about his image equally, as I am protective about the image of my parents or my children?

00:14:40--> 00:14:59

You know, sometimes mothers cannot tolerate anyone criticizing their children, even if it's with regards to something that is true. If for example, a child is misbehaving. And a teacher feels that this is something that needs to be addressed. But she has to think so many times before she actually talks to the mother, isn't it and she has to speak to the mother enough.

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

A tactful way because no mother likes to hear anything negative about her child, even if it is true.

00:15:07--> 00:15:52

We're very protective generally. But when the prophets are the loudest Adamson is mocked at, or when questions or objections are raised against his life. And people criticize what he did or what he said, Then where is our concern? And where is our love? And where is our respect? We need to check ourselves we need to analyze ourselves. Think about it. Somebody insults your child, you'll boil in anger, you will not stay silent. But when the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam or he himself is being insulted then where does our Eman go? Where does our VEDA go? So, this is a big sign. This is a big test that we need, you know, keep checking ourselves with and also we see that when a

00:15:52--> 00:16:38

person reaches this level, that he loves the profits of a lot more than anyone else, then what will he do? He will give importance to his ways, his commands over everything and everyone else. He will give importance to his commands, his words, his actions above his own desire even he will not say or I don't feel like it. I can't be bothered No, because following the Prophet comes with love and when there is love, then you are definitely bothered, then you definitely feel like it. This is something so important that we cannot neglect the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam we cannot, you know, leave aside not give importance to any aspect of his life. Every aspect of his life is

00:16:38--> 00:16:39

important.

00:16:40--> 00:16:45

Because you see, when you love someone a lot, then what are you concerned about? Everything about them?

00:16:46--> 00:17:12

Isn't it everything they have said everything they have done, that the criteria for the acceptance of deeds is what is lost and secondly, Mutambara following the Prophet sallallahu Sallam if that is not there, these are not accepted. Love for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has to be expressed in the correct way as well. And what is the correct way of expressing that love following his Sunnah, not celebrating festivals or events that he never commanded us to.

00:17:14--> 00:17:22

Similarly today, you learned that there were people who fabricated a hadith and they said that we are fabricating for him and not against him. This is not love.

00:17:23--> 00:18:02

This is not love. It has to be expressed in the right way. These are the settlers that this love is what complete and perfect once a man their levels of Eman, it increases it decreases. The more a person follows a prophet said a lot of them the more he loves him, the higher his Eman is, and the less he follows him the less he loves him, the lower his email is. So it's up to you. Where do you want your email to be? You understand it's up to you, what standard you set for yourself what criteria you set for yourself how successful you want to be, that love has to be in the right way it has to be expressed in the right way. Because if a person does not do it in the right way, then on

00:18:02--> 00:18:16

the day of gentlemen, such deeds a will not be accepted and be such people will not be allowed to even come to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when they will try to come and drink from the house, they will be stopped. So love is important, of course, but it has to be in the right way as well.

00:18:18--> 00:18:53

And that through his ways, we get guidance as to how to live our lives in the best way in every aspect that whether it's loving, relating or eating or drinking or going or traveling anything. She's mentioning an incident where a man once came to a chef and he said that I want to see the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in my dream. So what should I do? So he said to him, eat a lot of salt, don't drink any water, and sleep. And then you will see him in your dream. So he came back to him and he said that so the chef asked him that did you do what I told his idea? He said that you lied. I never saw the profit or loss of my dream. So he said, What did you say? He said, I saw a lot of

00:18:53--> 00:18:53

water.

00:18:55--> 00:19:04

So he said that you saw a lot of water because you were very thirsty, you wanted water. You love that water. So when you love the profits on a lot,

00:19:05--> 00:19:20

then you will see him. So Love is not just verbal claims that he I love the Prophet sallallahu Sallam love has to be from inside and when it's on the inside, then it will come out in following the profit in every way, even when eating and drinking.

00:19:21--> 00:19:46

So we see that there are many signs of love for the profits of the lotus. One of them is following us or none of them is knowing him and part of knowing him is that a person knows about his name about his children about his family, his wives his life. And if we just claim that we love him, but we don't know him, then that's a lie. There's a huge contradiction over there.

00:19:47--> 00:19:58

And one thing that we need to take from these studies is that we need to constantly reflect on our actions that in my daily life, how much do I follow the Sunnah of the prophet

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

Because that is a sign

00:20:03--> 00:20:13

that I love him, if I don't follow this on, whether it is on the insula, or it is in waking up going to sleep any sooner.

00:20:14--> 00:20:18

First of all, how much do I know of the sin of the prophets of Allah?

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

And secondly, how much do I follow that?

00:20:23--> 00:20:29

Because that will tell you whether you truly love him or not. And if you don't love him, your mind is very low.

00:20:30--> 00:20:56

Your mind is very low. Because what completes perfect the man his love for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam received the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to like us to prefer doing good things with the right hand, whether it was eating or drinking, or, you know, putting clothes on, he would always prefer to start from the right side. So similarly, when we're giving something taking something, we should apply that soon over there as well start with the right.

00:20:57--> 00:21:00

What is it that stops us from following this?

00:21:03--> 00:21:43

forgetfulness? What else? comfort? Like, no big deal? It's okay. You know, it's easier for me to do in the left hand, why should I bother doing it with the right hand? But again, like I mentioned, when there is love, then what will a person do? He will, he will prefer the way of the Prophet sort of Arsenal over his own desire as well over his own convenience as well. Because love makes you sacrifice, isn't it? Love makes you bear pain. Love makes you suffer inconvenience as well. And it all becomes easy with love, then you don't complain. I was thinking of like my daughter, she has a habit of forgetting. And she forgets a lot of school items, things like that. And but she always

00:21:43--> 00:22:03

remembers the things that she really likes like her skipping rope. So she'll come home Oh, mama, I forgot my Arabic Walker. I forgot you know my homework at school. Did you forget your skipping rope? No. So like I noticed, whatever you prioritize in your life, what is really important to you, you do not forget the things that you don't think are so important. You tend to forget.

00:22:05--> 00:22:06

Love makes you remember.

00:22:08--> 00:22:12

It's amazing years and years go by but parents remember the little things that their children used to do.

00:22:14--> 00:22:23

Isn't it and they keep telling them you know, when you were a baby you did this? You know when you were a child you did this? And you say like yeah, I've heard it many times already. They don't forget it.

00:22:24--> 00:22:33

That his way was the best way in everything. The way that was most beloved to Allah so this is why it's important that we love him. And as a result of that, follow him

00:22:34--> 00:22:38

Bab Hello wattle Eman chapter the sweetness of Eman.

00:22:40--> 00:22:42

Hello. What does Halawa mean?

00:22:43--> 00:22:48

sweetness? Have you heard of the word hello? In order it's derived from the same word.

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

So hello sweetness of emotion, the feeling of sweetness. It is of the benefits of emotion.

00:22:58--> 00:23:05

It's of the benefits of emotion. What does it show to us this chapter, the chapter title it shows to us that a man has weakness.

00:23:06--> 00:23:09

But this weakness it's not his see. It's not physical

00:23:10--> 00:23:58

sweetness as experienced by the tongue. Rather it is Marinelli sweetness that is experienced that a person tastes were in his heart. One joy is what you experience. For example, in your eyes, when you look at something beautiful, or for example, in your ears when you listen to something beautiful, or on your tongue when you eat something very tasty, very delicious. But there is another joy that you feel where that you experience in your heart. And that joy that happiness does not come easily. Is it? For example, you're sad, very sad. You put a candy in your mouth. Okay, you experience the sweetness in your tongue, but will that make you happy inside? No. Happiness inside does not come

00:23:58--> 00:24:48

easily. There are no shortcuts to it. You have to go through a journey, isn't it and then you get to that level of experiencing joy and happiness in your heart. So Eman is something that is whose joy is experienced in the heart whose happiness is felt in the heart. And how is it experienced? This Hardee's As mentioned earlier, it tells us about the signs which are that a person has reached that level where he is experiencing the joy the sweetness of him. Now what is the sweetness of Eman? It is when a person feels happy, content satisfied in his heart with for example, the decree of Allah, the deen of Allah, the commands of Allah. Similarly, he enjoys for example, himself in Salah. He

00:24:48--> 00:24:59

enjoys himself in recitation of the Quran. He feels happy when he remembers Allah. This is the sweetness of Eman that a person feels in his heart. Similarly, when a person has Charsadda

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

About the dean, this is also experiencing this weakness of email. So there are many, many ways through which a person enjoys the sweetness of it in his heart. Now we see that this weakness sometimes reaches its high. And sometimes it's very dull. Just like when you put something sweet in your mouth initially, it's very sweet. But then that sweetness, that taste is not there all the time. at certain times, it's very high and other times it's low. So just like Eman increases and decreases, the sweetness of Eman also increases and decreases. And especially the sweetness of Eman is experienced when you can sit human is healthy. When a person's emotion is good. It's healthy,

00:25:42--> 00:26:32

it's doing well. Then he will taste the sweetness of emotion. It's just like honey is sweet. to a person who is sick. How is any better? There's less, but a person who is healthy. Will he enjoy that honey? Will he taste the sweetness? Yes He will. Similarly when a man is strong, when a man is high, then a person will enjoy the sweetness of eema and when it's low, then you will not experience it. So let's look at this. How does how does an emoji Mohammed Abu al muthanna Karla Henderson Abdul Wahab is sacrificial by the head the center au boo and Taylor butter and NSN are Nina BIA sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a call center son, man Kunta fee. What are the Halawa? Tell him an akuna la hora,

And you could have in Salah soon three man who could not they were Fie in him meaning three attributes three qualities whoever they are in meaning whichever person has these qualities, what are the he will find Halawa del Eman, the sweetness of Eman? What are those three qualities? First of all, in your corner Allahu wa rasuluh that Allah and His Messenger become a hub by la he most beloved to him, mercy where Homer from whatever is beside them. In other words, Allah and His Messenger become the most beloved to him than everyone and everything

00:27:25--> 00:27:28

else. Secondly, what are your headband?

00:27:29--> 00:28:03

And that a person loves another loves a person lair you hibou whom he does not love, Li Lila except for Allah, that a person loves another, for whose sake only for the sake of Allah, what a year kraja and that he dislikes Aniruddha filco. Free that he returns to kufr comma Jacobo, just as he dislikes a new code FFA now that he be thrown into fire. These are the three signs of what the sweetness of

00:28:05--> 00:28:51

whoever has these three qualities in him. He has indeed experienced the joy, the sweetness of faith, what's the first time giving importance to Allah and His Messenger, loving them more than loving anyone and anything else? What does it mean by loving a lion is messenger, that a person is very obedient to them. He is fully devoted to them their command, even if their command even if their instruction opposes one's own desire. So a person loves a lion is messenger, that he obeys them and give importance to them more than anyone else. Remember that there are two levels of loving Allah subhanaw taala. One level, or one type of love is that which is obligatory. There is a certain

00:28:51--> 00:29:38

amount of love that every person must have for Allah. If he is a believer, there's a certain level of love that he must have. And what is that level that it is such love, which enables a person to fulfill the obligations and the weakness of that love results in neglecting the commands of Allah. If that love is there, a person will obey. If that love is weak, then a person will disobey. We're not talking about forgetfulness mistake we're talking about deliberate, deliberately ignoring the commands of Allah, disobeying Allah. The second level is that which is preferred, which is a higher level of love. What does it mean by that? It is such love that makes a person perform not just the

00:29:38--> 00:30:00

obligatory but also the voluntary deeds, the voluntary deeds, for example, you love Allah, you don't want a lot to be angry with you. So you get up and you pray your Salah. You love Allah even more and you want to express that love you want to show that love. So yes, you pray to your Father. But now on top of that, you also

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

Pray the novel, for example, at what time for instance, you know, the time after project after project a certain amount of time has passed by his rock. So you pray at that time, is that an obligation? It's not, but what is it? It's voluntary. When will a person do that? When he has a higher level of love for Allah subhanaw taala. Similarly, a person loves Allah, he doesn't want a lot to be upset with him. So what does he do he fast in the month of Ramadan? Okay, but he wants to show that love even more What will you do? voluntary fasts. A person goes for Hajj fulfills the obligation, but then he goes for Oprah. You know, people say, why are you going for more you've done

00:30:36--> 00:30:52

your has already spent that money on something else, go to Europe, go to this country go to that country. And you will spend all that money on an ombre package for just 10 days. People say that, right? What what makes you buy a package and go there? What laferla.

00:30:53--> 00:31:33

So, we see that one level of love is what makes a person fulfill the obligations. A higher level of love is what will make a person perform voluntary deeds as well. It will make him perform extra good deeds as well. Similarly, we see another example. That one is that at the time of difficulty, a person is patient, right? and patience means that he doesn't say anything negative, he's just quiet. He's afraid to speak because he's afraid that if he says something, he might say something negative, which will waste his reward which might upset Allah subhanaw taala. So he's in the state of controlling himself. Greater love, what does it mean that even when something difficult has

00:31:33--> 00:31:49

happened, a person is number two, their levels of patience. And the final level is that a person is happy with what Allah has ordained for him. When does that come with a higher level of love, that even when things are going haywire, a person is still happy with Allah,

00:31:50--> 00:32:29

a person is still happy with the decision of a loss. So there are different levels. Love for the messenger. So loneliness is also of different levels. One level is that which is obligatory, a certain amount of love we have to have for the profit side of autism. And what is that, that a person loves him because he was a messenger of Allah, that a person loves him that he follows his commands, what he commanded explicitly, clearly what he commanded us to do. So person follows that higher level of recommended level of love is that that a person follows the Prophet sallallahu wasallam learns about him about every aspect of his life, like, for example, or the library or mode

00:32:29--> 00:33:10

when he was inheriting the Prophet sartoris. And what did he do? He also opened this button. Did he have to do that? Was that required? It wasn't required. But why did he do that? Because his love was, was a lot. Similarly, when you perform the Hajj, what did he do? He followed every sin of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you know, the very path of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam went on, he went on the same way. Why? What made him do that? So how come Sunnah is that important, but people don't give as much importance to it. There are different levels of love, the greater the love, the more a person will follow the Sunnah. So a person who loves Allah and His Messenger more than he loves

00:33:10--> 00:33:59

anyone else, then that person has experienced what the sweetness of faith, he has experienced the joy of faith, he has truly enjoyed even the sweetness of faith is a feeling of joy, that a person gets held by obeying of law by following the messenger. So when a person obeys a law, what does it mean? He loves a law when a person follows messenger, what does it mean? He loves a messenger and as a result, he will obey them, you will follow them. So what does it mean he will experience the sweetness of it, he will experience the joy of email. And he will do all of this how happily willingly not with a burden, not disliking Li, but he will go forth willingly by for example, one is

00:33:59--> 00:34:41

that a person performs a Salah just to get over it. And the other is that he's performing Sunnah to earn a less pleasure and that is when he will be able to pray extra. You don't like to say that don't focus on the quantity focus on the quality because when quality will come, quantity will also come. If you improve your Salah you start enjoying your Salah when you start enjoying yourself. You don't mind praying for or 10 or 20 you Don't mind them. Like for example, in the month of Ramadan when you pray throw away. For some people it's very heavy to pray even eat. But there are other people who by the time they finish it like done already. How does that come? How does that come love

00:34:41--> 00:34:59

for Allah and His Messenger so obedience leads to love. And that is what makes you experience the sweetness of it. And we see that the love for aligners messenger, both of them. They're in a way intertwined meaning both of them are connected with each other. You cannot separate the two

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

Can you separate them? Can you just say, Yeah, I love Allah. But I don't think it's necessary to follow the Prophet sallallahu

00:35:07--> 00:35:57

You don't know my heart. I really love Allah. I love God. Is this claim true? No. Why? Because the loss of Eternal Darkness is in content to Hebron Allah Fattah virani. If you claim to love Allah, then you have to follow the Prophet satellite is Allah. So love for Allah and His Messenger go together, they cannot be separated. They can never be separated. Second time that a person loves another, for who sake only for the sake of Allah azza wa jal that you have Balmoral law you have boo illa lilla that he loves a person whom he does not love, except for who except for Allah. So in other words, he does not love the other for any other cause. Why do people love other people?

00:35:59--> 00:36:18

For example, you love your mother. Why? Because of the relationship that you had with your mother, she is your mother. Right? Similarly, you love your friend. Why? Because you and her get along really well. So there is a reason for that love, that you get along with her really well. Similarly, you love your child. Why?

00:36:19--> 00:37:01

Okay, you love your classmate. Why? Why do people love other people, there's always a reason. There's friendship, there's some mutual benefits. There's some benefit that you get from them, some pleasures, some kind of happiness, some kind of gain, right? There's always some reason behind love. Love is never blind. By the way. There's always a reason. Either it's shallow, anything something or the other. Is there. This case, which has been mentioned over here is that the reason for loving that person is who? Allah subhanaw taala that is the only reason why you love them. That's the reason. What does it mean by that? That you love them? Because of, for example, their obedience to

00:37:01--> 00:37:38

Allah, or their love for Allah, or their commitment for the dean? Or because when you sit with them, they talk about Allah subhanaw taala or the kinds of things that they talk about the increase your Eman. Remember we learned anywhere other than who he said, at least, Vina know me, Sir, why would he say that, that in the company or other people you can increase in your Eman you can increase in your love for Allah subhanaw taala. Some people whom you sit with, you feel that your Eman has become higher. Other people when you sit with them, you feel as though your Eman has become low. Other people you sit with them, it just stays the same. It is neither improved nor has a decreased.

00:37:39--> 00:38:14

This is the person who's mentioned the Hadith, the one with whom when you are your demand increases, when you listen to them, when you work with them. You increase in your love for Allah, you increase in your love for the deed, you increase in your ibadah your increase in your authority, because there are many people who claim I love so and so for the sake of Allah for the sake of Allah, you know, big label, but at the same time both these friends are sitting together. Yeah, so the time has come, it's almost about to go and finally they get up and pray. The same friends are there talking bad about other people. This is no love for the sake of Allah. Love for the sake of Allah means that

00:38:14--> 00:38:58

you are increasing in your obedience to Allah because you love them for their obedience to Allah, not for any other reason. You understand what love for the sake of allies, your heaven or earth He said, the reality of loving someone for the sake of Allah is a love that neither increases when the person does good towards you. Nor does it decrease when the person is averse to words. Interesting. Our love for other people increases when they're good to us. And our love for them decreases when they are averse to us. They don't care. We said fine, I don't care. You call me I'll call you to you send me a text message I'll send it to you to love for Allah is that whether that person knows you

00:38:58--> 00:39:43

or not cares for you or not gives importance to you are not used to love them. Why? Because you love them for their obedience, not for any other reason. This is a sign of sweetness of faith. When a person reaches this level, he has truly experienced the joy of even why because he loves him for him and not for any other reason. Not for the great cookies they bake not for the smile that they give you know, you love them for Allah or bad of Allah is the cause. Now one thing that must be clarified over here is that a person's love for another even if it's for the sake of Allah should not become like the love that a person has for Allah. Who believes should not become dogma Allah.

00:39:44--> 00:40:00

There are levels of love, love for Allah has to be the highest and love for another person should be lesser than that. Because it happens sometimes that a person loves for example, another and he says that Yeah, I love this friend of mine for the sake of Allah and there

00:40:00--> 00:40:32

constantly thinking about them, you know, they're concerned about them when they're awake when they're sleeping, when they're eating when they're drinking. They're following them on Twitter or on Facebook, following their, you know, let's say a person is traveling from one city to another giving one lecture here giving another lecture there. They're constantly following them. If it's a male shareholder dreaming to become their wife one day, people do that. Honestly, I've heard it. Unfortunately, it happens. amongst young women, it happens a lot. There comes a young man teaching something about the dean, and the sister begins to wonder, is he married? May I marry him? Do you

00:40:32--> 00:41:10

think I can? Is there a possibility? You love him for his Dean? It should not get out of limits. I remember I was reading somewhere about this shift. I forgotten his name. He was answering some questions on the television people were calling in and he was responding to their questions. So this woman called and she asked her question, and she said that OSHA, please pray for me that I get married to so and so chef. So he said, Why do you want to marry her? She said that because he's so knowledgeable, and he's so good. He said, Okay, if you want to marry him for his knowledge, then I will pray that we are lucky to marry to this other chef who was very elderly at that time. Because

00:41:10--> 00:41:13

if you want knowledge, then he is more knowledgeable than.

00:41:14--> 00:41:25

So you understand. It starts with the label of I love him for the sake of Allah. And then it gets out of hand. It gets out of hand, a person forgets the reason.

00:41:27--> 00:42:05

And he gets lost in that person. A person forgets a line and gets lost in that person, it should not be like this. Then what happens? All your concern is that person, and not what they're saying or what they're doing, or what they're teaching. For example, there could be a sheriff there could be a teacher who's teaching the dean, and you learn many good things from them, you follow them, you learn from their lectures, very good. Mashallah. But if you start obsessing about, oh, this is their book, and this is their CD set. Yeah, I have all of your CDs. Have you heard them? No, no, I haven't heard all of them. But I have them all. What's the point of having them if you're not going to

00:42:05--> 00:42:45

listen to them? Share so and so is coming to the city shakes. Oh, and so isn't that city? How does that concern you? It's natural that when you love someone, you start following them? Right, you are concerned for them, but your concern for them should not become an obsession. Exactly. You should yet Corona la pm on Walker road and we're allowed you to be him and not other people. Even if you say that you love them for Allah, even if you learn many beneficial things from them. What do we learn sort of Accra? wamena nassima todo mundo en la and dadon. You have buena home. Villa Villa Dena Amano assured her Bella your love for Allah should always be more than your love for other

00:42:45--> 00:43:26

people. Even if it's very righteous people, we see that even when it comes to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Can you love for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam be exactly the same as your love for Allah? No, there are levels. Allah subhanaw taala His love is the highest, then comes a level of love for the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And the fact is that when you love the Prophet sallallahu, etc, it means that you must love the one who sent him even more. Why do you love him? Because of what he taught you? Where did you learn that from who gave it to him, Allah, so go back to the source. Don't forget the source. So you understand what it means by loving someone for the sake of Allah, that

00:43:26--> 00:44:03

Allah is given the utmost importance. So for example, even if they forget to tell you something, even if they forget to call you, you don't mind. You don't mind because you love them. For Allah for the good that they do when they give you importance, or they don't give you importance. So this is a second sign. Third sign Do you hate reverting to disbelief that a person dislikes reverting to disbelief question in this hadith that says we're near Cora and you're rude, I feel carefree that he returns to coffee.

00:44:04--> 00:44:49

Is this applicable in the case of a person who was a disbeliever? Before then he became a Muslim. So now he hates to become a disbeliever. Again, only. This is also applicable in the case of a person who wasn't Muslim, but perhaps committed the actions of those who disbelieved. And then when he made Toba, he became more righteous, he left those bad actions he hates to return to those bad actions. Because the word hear ooda does not necessarily mean to go back to how a person was before. It also means to become you understand your ooda or the Euro does not necessarily mean that a person returns to how he was before it also means to become, for example, Srebrenica, him and his people, those who

00:44:49--> 00:44:59

believed in Him, we learned at night that they said, when I akuna and Neruda Fie her. It's not possible for us that we would return to your middle left to your

00:45:00--> 00:45:35

Creating a religion was sure Abraham a disbeliever before? No he wasn't. Similarly, in the Hadith, the prophet sort of I was in and we learned later homosassa to attack through the urban urban region were inherent, that the daodejing will not come until such and such will happen. So until the area of the author of the Arab, meaning the Arabian Peninsula returns to being looted to unhardened Rivers, so was Arabia ever like that? No, what does it mean by that, it will become not returned to but it will become. So this part of the Hadees is talking about

00:45:36--> 00:45:58

a person who is righteous, and he hates to commit the actions of disbelief or the actions that Allah subhanaw taala does not like, as much as he hates falling into fire. As much as he dislikes falling into fire. This is how much he stays away from those actions that Allah does not like,

00:45:59--> 00:46:28

you know, forget about falling into the fire, he doesn't even want to go close to it, he doesn't want to touch it. So when a person hits disbelief to such an extent, that means that he has tasted the joy, the sweetness of a man, the pleasure of Eman. If you think about it, all of these three characteristics, they're connected together. How, when a person will love Allah and His Messenger, then automatically who will have love for those who love Allah and His Messenger, isn't it.

00:46:29--> 00:46:44

And then the more he will obey, the more you clean he will have, isn't it? As a result, he will dislike anything that is other than Islam. Anything that opposes Islam, he will hate it, he will hate to ever become like that.

00:46:46--> 00:47:30

So we see that these are how they show to us the different levels of love, or the different types of love. The highest should be for Allah and His Messenger, and then other people. And when you love other people as well that should also be for the sake of Allah. And also remember one thing that these are these do not mean that when you love Allah when you love his messenger, then you will dislike other people. No, it doesn't mean love them and hate others know what this is how this show to a sweetness of human is when you love another for the sake of Allah. loving people is a part of email, because unfortunately sometimes people think either you love Allah or you love your parents.

00:47:30--> 00:47:50

No, you have to love both. Definitely the love of Allah will be given importance above love of parents. But it doesn't mean you have to hate your parents. No way. So keep things in perspective, when you will love Allah. And it's true love than a person will love the messenger. And when you will love the messenger. You will love the dean, when he will love the deen he will love the people of the deen.

00:47:51--> 00:48:37

But we see that sweetness of faith is the greatest joy the greatest happiness that a person can experience. It's the satisfaction that a person has in his heart which cannot be gained by anything else. This is the way to be happy inside. Why should we love Allah more than we love anyone else because Allah air sign on us as the greatest and Allah is always there people come and they go. Love for the sake of Allah means that you love someone because of their obedience to Allah. So if a person does not obey Allah, then you cannot love them for the sake of Allah. You love them for their Islam. Okay, that love will be of a lesser level than that we have learned early about Hiawatha good

00:48:37--> 00:49:20

life good life means that a person is happy on the inside, then he can live a good life. And that comes with this email. What if there is a person who is very let's say committed to the deen, very obedient to Allah subhanaw taala they're very righteous, but you don't get along with them. Should you love them? Yes, you should. You should love them. For what? For the sake of for their Deen. Like I told you earlier quote that I mentioned to you, that the reality of loving someone for the sake of Allah is the love that neither increases when the person does good to you. Nor does it decrease when a person is adversity. The thing is that it's very important to love people for the sake of Allah.

00:49:20--> 00:49:54

Even when they hurt you. You love them for their Deen. Why? Because if you don't love them for their Deen, then what will happen? It will affect your work. Like for example, if something happens between us, like I say something that you don't like, and you say that's it. I'm never going to that class again. I'm never going to allow that again. Is that not going to affect your deen? Will it not? It will, isn't it? So this is why it's important to overlook what other people do and say the way they ignore you the way they treat you. Ignore it and love them for the sake of

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

without this the work of the dean cannot be done.

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

Without this you cannot experience the sweetness of faith. Aloma, I live by Nakuru, Bina
