I was looking upon a story, to enlighten as for the love of Allah subhana wa Donna,
Allah subhanaw taala has shown us through many ways, through His prophets, at least salatu salam through his, the prophets or licensed companions, to the people at the time of musante Senato. Salaam, you look at how are you, buddy salatu salam, the patients the suburb that he went for, if you look at Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, this, the trials and tribulations that he went through, we find that every single one of them took the pain because they love the law so much.
So let me start by saying that there was once
a woman walking, let's just say down the street.
And let's just say this woman is walking and behind there, she's got a stalker, she's got a man following her. And this man is saying, I love you, I cannot live without you, I'll die for you. You know, I'm in a state where I want to commit suicide. He's, he's like, going through a transfer. Only thing he's thinking is, is this woman.
And the woman's now looking at him saying that she this guy stalking me. And she's like, You know what? I love you too. And he was, yes, this is the best and you know, he's still following and so on. And she's walking in, etc, etc. So do what she says to him. She goes, You know what, let me tell you something, she will see my beauty. It's nothing in comparison to my sister's beauty. My sister's even more beautiful than me. He goes, she goes when my sisters even more beautiful maybrook there, she's there. Turn around and look at the beauty of my sister and tell me who's prettier. And the man turned around. And the girl took off her chapel as an issue. And she walked in.
She goes, You spent half an hour telling me that I'm the most beautiful girl in Estonia. You know you die for me. You can't live without me. And the minute I told you my sister's more beautiful than me You turned around to see if you really loved me You wouldn't turn around.
Make sense? Just as we can compare this to has this is this relates to our Deen because when we turn towards Allah subhana wa tada or the ways of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we should have no other way to we should not be looking anybody anywhere else. That is the true mohabbat for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam we can have in terms of you can have it in the sense that you know, I love Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam so I'm going to perfect my Salah I love the Prophet Allah nice and I'm so I'm going to perfect my my appearance I love and I love the Prophet Allah license, I want to start acting upon as soon as you know once there is hazard hands a lot of the Allahu anhu
he just got married.
He's with his wife.
And it's the first night
after the first night he forgot to do hopefully, we'll
go sell he forgot to do. But he had from outside that there was a announcement that come on the path of Allah, we are going in battle come to the path of Allah and the Prophet Allah liasons made this announcement. Upon making this announcement has a hands a lot of the a lot one who got up. And he goes, I'm leaving. I can do this. The processor is calling me and I'm standing in my home. And when he leaves the house, his wife says to him, the Where are you going? At least listen to me. And he goes, No. Once I have turned to my Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam do not expect me to turn back. And don't expect to convince me not to go. Once I have turned my way to the professor lesson. I'm not
going to look anywhere else. She goes, No, no, you listen to me first. Look at the love they had for Allah subhanaw taala. She goes, listen to me. And I'm not going to tell you to turn away Just listen to me one second. She goes if you're going with so much passion for the reward that Allah subhanaw taala will grant you that do not come back.
So everybody got confused. They said there's only been one night in their marriage. Another girl saying don't come back. She's basically saying make sure you die. No, come back here. Maybe you die in the battlefield. So everybody asked her that why have you said this to your husband? What was the reason for you saying to this to your husband? Was it because you didn't love him? Did he say something that something happened? What was the reason for you to say to him, don't come back.
She says the most beautiful thing to our husband. Look at the both of the passions here. One thing that I've turned my face towards Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, I'm not going to look anywhere else. And now look what his wife says to him. She goes to him that if you're going with such passion, if you're going with such devotion for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala do not come back because on the day of qiyamah I want to be called by Allah subhanho wa Taala that women who slept one the first night without her husband because her husband went to
The path of jihad.
This is the love of Allah subhanaw taala that they had decreed that the level of love that they had
before we get on to Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam let me just mentioned something else that came to my mind.
You know, you look at Hazara Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allah. I mentioned this plenty of times before. Luca has Abu Bakar the Aloha.
He's walking with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He's making his way towards Hari Thor. And he is now about to carry Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam on his shoulders and claimed to be 100 but you've seen her result.
Has anybody seen her before here?
You've seen Ben Nevis hominy right? Ben Nevis as they come Anna K. Ben Navasky are the Monza rogie half the height of Ben Nevis
and has it Abubakar de la there was no try you go to Horace out today. There's a track that goes around the mountain and takes you to the top takes you approximately four hours to claim has Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu carried the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on his shoulders and took him to a marathon. before this happened.
Jabra le Serato Sam comes to the soul of La sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and says Look, listen to what he's saying to him. He says Allah is asking
to ask Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu that is he happy with Allah subhana wa Taala.
Look who's asking, asking him and her boo boo the process some time around. And at that time has abubaker just had a cloth over him tied with some kind of you could say some kind of thing just tied his craft together.
And hasakah said,
Of course rule of law. I'm happy with my rub. I'm happy wherever we are. And this is the man that was very wealthy. No, he's not wealthy because he spent on the part of the law. And after seeing this process on Season Two jabril le salatu salam. The house Abu Bakr said he is happy with Allah subhanho wa Taala then Juba, Isla de serrato salaam says to the Prophet Allah likes and I'm Tara has an Abu Bakar that Allah subhana wa tada says As salam o Allah Kamiya, Abu Bakar this was the virtue that Allah subhanaw taala showing us by sacrificing by loving Allah, by showing that you're devoted, Allah will elevate your status. Look at Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam. This is my personal favorite
story. It takes me beyond the imagination. Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam,
the angels are speaking to a loss of Hannah Montana and the heavens. The angels say to Allah
that Allah was praising Ibrahim and salatu salam to the angels. And now the angels say that Allah he's obviously going to love you so much and do so much for you given him so much. You've given him so much wealth, obviously he's going to love you so much. So Allah said, descend upon this dunya and test him
to show the angels that
when you have an in son that loves a law, there's no limits of loving Allah. So at that time, wealth was not money. It was like cows, sheeps, camels and so on. So what happens is that Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam is sitting down and he can hear a sound so pan Allah He will hamdulillah he will La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, for instance.
And has Ibrahim an extra two sons who sing this? Who is praising the one and only Allah? Where is the sun coming from?
He runs, he's running one to his left, then to his right, then he's looking behind him. Then he's running around, and he goes around and he sees three people sitting there.
And he says, Did you praise the Almighty Allah Subhana? wa Taala.
It was Yes, that was us. We finished now. He could say it again. Please, a loved one small. So he says Subhana Allah He will hamdulillah he will La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar.
And they finished. He's a bit of humanists after some cycles repeat once more for me just once more. And when he was when they were repeating it, he was shedding with tears. He was crying with tears that my Allah is so beloved to me, that listening to his prayer prays nothing compares to him. Look what he does next. So the angel says, we cannot read it again. You need to give us something.
He goes, What do you want? He goes, you know all the sheep that you own. Give me them and I'll say once more, he goes Is that it? Is that all you want?
For me to praise the Almighty Allah subhana wa for you to praise the Almighty Allah He goes, take all the sheep that I have.
And then he says God Subhana Allah He will hamdulillah he will La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar
Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam says it once more for me please.
He goes, No, no, you
We need we need more wealth. What else have you got to give?
He goes, I have all these cows take these cows.
I don't need them, take them. He gave all the cows and the angel said again. So barn Allah He will handle the law he will La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar.
And no, they stopped again. No Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam is not getting enough. He could have said the word himself. But he wanted to hear it from the third party. He wanted to hear someone else it. So now the third time they say we don't have any words to you, you need to give us more wealth. So he gives all the camels that he hunt. He goes take them say it again. They recite to the Kadima once more.
No, he has no wealth left. No Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam has no wealth, they finish. And they then they said to him now what are you going to give to us? You have nothing left. Now what have you got? No How are you going to hear the prayers of Allah subhanho wa Taala Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, Xena, and a sense of emotion crying is upset. He's so taken by just by listening to the praise of Allah He was so taken by it.
And, you know, when we listen to machines, and you feel a bit emotional because of the tune in the way it is going are the words that are happening and so on. But a human is not to some filters through just the place of Allah subhana wa Tada. And then what happens is Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam says that I do not have wealth anymore. But what to do is you know, the sheep, the cows and the cameras that I give you, gave you
keep me as the shepherd and I will look after your wealth. But as long as I'm with you just keep on letting me just listen to Subhana Allah will hamdulillah he will La ilaha illallah wa Akbar Just let me keep on listening to this. Look at the love and the devotion. Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam had just to listen to the words of Allah Subhana Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the correct understanding. May Allah subhanaw taala make this month of Ramadan a means of us becoming close to the Almighty. Allah Subhana Allah Donna May Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us amongst those that month of Ramadan has come and we have unable to seek a last forgiveness on May Allah not make as
amongst those that we have taken a last forgiveness. But on the day of EAD, we make it a means of us going back into the final Johanna. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us May Allah subhanaw taala protect our young generations. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect all Muslims around the world.
