This is how Allah describes the elites, the highest of the high, they shall love Allah and Allah shall love them. And Allah says with regards to the believers, will Lavina Amen who are shut do who Berliner, those who have Iman, their love for Allah is more than the love of the pagans for
their false cause there is no comparison. The believers love Allah with more love than any other false religion. The love that the movement has for Allah cannot be compared with any other love. And that is why the prophets of Allahu Allah He was seldom would regularly make dua to Allah, Allah Houma in the LUCA who Buck Oh Allah, I asked for your love will help Berman you hit book and the love of those who love you.

The Prophet says I'm saying I want that love from you, Oh Allah, and I want the love of those whom you love. So once again, I want to love those who you love, and those whom you love, I want them to love me always is a two way street. Then muda ICA de sol your own the only are the Gambia, I want them to love me and I want to love them as well. And I want to love good deeds that will bring me close to your love. I want to love doing those good deeds. Therefore, a sign of Eman is you enjoy worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala you love the good deeds
that bring you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala the concept of love or what have been so much beautiful flowery language is mentioned by you know our mystical saints and those that have gone before us some of this language is interesting we can say it and sometimes it borders on perhaps not the best language to use but hell you will find it in their treatises. So for example some have said that the love of Allah means that you empty your own existence such that you forget you exist and it is only Allah who exists you know it gets into this level of sometimes a little bit too mystical but the concept of love is something that cannot be denied. Junaid the famous ascetic was asked what is
the love of Allah? He said the love of Allah is you forget about yourself and you own the are obsessed with pleasing Him your own ego your own knifes becomes nothing your own would use almost becomes nothing and you're only obsessed with pleasing him such that he said when you move you move for the sake of Allah when you stop you're with Allah subhanho wa Taala when you speak you speak on behalf of Allah and when you're silent, you're still thinking about Allah subhanho wa Taala In other words, you're always constantly in the in the notion of wanting to have that mahalo with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Now how does one attain this? muhabba How does one achieve this love of Allah a
number of things number one, explicitly mentioned in the Hadith, Hadith, cozzia body and Muslim that the prophets have said that Allah says My servant continues to draw close to me with the obligatory
worried deeds and then after the obligatory masala Abdul Karim Guney Laban no afraid he's gonna continue to draw close to me with the no awful Hatter or Heba who until I shall love him explicit. You want Allah to love you, the forehead and then often explicit, you want Allah to love you, you must increase the variety is there now often every single Knuffle every single chapter of a bada the Salah, the thicker the Quran, the sadhaka decennium You keep on doing the nothing until Allah says or Heba who I shall love him. And when I love him, what happens to the idea of Allah, I become the eyes with which he sees and I become the ears with which he hears and I become the hand with which
he reaches out and I become the feet with which he walks with meaning his entire life becomes the worship of Allah. So number one mechanism of attaining Allah's muhabba the 14th and then then a waffle number two mechanism of attaining muhabba all in contempt to hipbone Allah.
For Toby Rooney, you become Allah. You want to love Allah, follow me, Allah will love you very explicit in the Quran. How does one attain Allah's muhabba following the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his sunnah. So the second mechanism of attaining Allah is muhabba to study the sunnah to study the Sierra and to then follow and implement the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The third mechanism of attaining Allah's muhabba is the frequent recitation of the Quran and the constant vicar of Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no muhabba of Allah without constant vicar, vicar is the backbone vicar is one of the main mechanisms of attaining the muhabba of Allah and the
Quran is the ultimate vicar. The fourth mechanism of attaining Allah's muhabba is to study the names and attributes of Allah because when you don't know who is Allah, how would you love Allah so studying Allah's names and attributes having a relationship with these names and attributes using the names and attributes in your doors are full of fire Rahman Rahim Toba medic could use no these names understand these names and your love of Allah will increase the number one to five the fifth way of increasing your My above Allah subhanho wa Taala is to spend quality time with Allah. How can you spend quality time with Allah Ibrahim says one of the strongest ways of showing your love to
Allah is by secluding yourself and having private conversations with him when he has told you to have those conversations meaning tahajud and clear Malay one of the mechanisms of increasing your muhabba of Allah subhanho wa Taala is to cut yourself off from society. In the middle of the night. We talked about this a few days ago, the concept of done hello with Allah subhanho wa Taala and you open up your heart to Allah and you pray to her God and you read Quran. This is one of the ways you're going to increase your muhabba number five number six when it comes to muhabba very explicit in the Hadith as well. To love those whom Allah loves and to want to be with those whom Allah loves.
So a sign of loving Allah is to love the salah Hain and Olia of Allah, Who do you enjoy their company? Who do you really want to be with? That's a sign of your own heart. If you like to be with people of no iman, people who are backbiting people who are gambling, what does that show about you? Whereas if you love to be with the righteous, even if you're not righteous, but you love to be with them, what does that show and that's why our prophets have said to another 70 Malik, you shall be with the one whom you love, you shall be with the one whom you love, so of the ways to achieve Allah's muhabba is to love those whom Allah loves, and that is the odia and the salah Hain that is
the righteous people that people have had and in the people of Taqwa love them be in their company, and the final point will mention Inshallah, of the ways to increase and to guarantee them a habit of Allah. study those verses in the Quran, in which Allah tells you the characteristics of those whom he loves, will Allah who you Hepburn with Turpin will allow you hate Balmar sin in Allah you herbal sabihin Allah here but Tawana were born with Toba hating, right read those verses that Allah saying I love these people.

and then implement them in your life. Very simple way. Allah has told you a list of people he loves. Read that list, read the Quran, memorize that list implemented in your life. And Allah has told you a list of people He does not love. Make sure
That is not a part of your life. And the final point will mention Insha Allah, we mentioned already make dua to Allah as the prophet system said Allahumma inni as Luca Hubdoc will hook them in your hip book will help bourbon in your Caribbean ala hookbait. Memorize this dua. Oh Allah, I ask your love and the love of those whom you love and the love of deeds that brings me to your love.
