Whoo hoo young man in a law there are a lot of behind the camera.
And the vision will be the greatest joy in gender and paradise. When the full beauty and the full splendor of Allah subhanho wa Taala is beheld by the human being.
But we can have a
a taste of that beauty in this world.
Not with the vision of our eyes, not with our eyesight, but with our insight with the vision of our hearts.
If we cultivate our hearts and we cleanse our hearts, and we purify our hearts, and we orient our hearts, towards Allah subhanho wa Taala
and then love will consume our hearts.
And that's the highest motivation for worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala
that's the highest motivation.
And it comes if we work towards it.
So love, we should love Allah subhanho wa Taala and someone hearing this who might be a Christian or from a Christian background that says good to love God but we have a loving God.
There's only one God
our God, if you're Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, there's only one God

Our love for a lot of time will never be unreciprocated
because the laws just in this world sometimes we love especially when we're young.
We call it puppy love.
And unfortunately for those whose hearts are afflicted with this particular malady, many times that love isn't reciprocated.

It's not a one way street. home he will love and they will love him. Because if we love Allah subhanho wa Taala that's a sign that Allah loves us.
It's a reciprocal relationship. But it doesn't come doesn't come cheap.

By learning about him, why did the teenagers who put the things on the wall they learn everything about that person that they adore, and they think they love?
How much do we know about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. When we learn about him, and we learn about what he suffered for us,
it would be virtually impossible not to love him.
We know that he sacrificed his standing amongst his people for us. And I mean could have been the leader of the Arabs.
They even offered him that he passed that up for us.
He could have been wealthy
he could have continued in his business and if
No, he left all that for us.
He migrated farm from his home. He suffered the indignities that
he migrated for him from his home for us.

when he nearly lost his life, and he wasn't thinking about himself during those hard times during the blockade, when he was forced out to the outskirts of the city with little food and little support.
He wasn't thinking about himself.

And that's a sign that the faith has become weak.
Because Allah tells us to love one another and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us the one love one another
So we discard that from the dunya. And what is the dunya?

And he comes home and the dinner is not ready and he blows up. Where's the mercy?
And that happens two or three times okay happen the other way. The guys out there breaking his neck and he's dealing with emergencies.
