I was looking upon a story to enlighten us for the love of Allah Subhana.
Allah subhanaw taala has shown us through many ways, through His prophets, at least salatu salam through his, the profits of licensed companions to the people at the time of musante Senato. Sunnah if you look at hazard a you believe salatu salam, the patient's the suburb that he went through, 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 loved 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 translator, only thing he's thinking is, is this woman.
And the woman is now looking at him saying this here, 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 and 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 on my sister's even more beautiful may look 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 garden in this dunya you know your die for me you can live without me. And the minute I told you, my sister is more beautiful than me you turn around to see if you really loved me You wouldn't turn around.
Make sense? Just as we can compare this to her. This is this relates to our Deen because when we turn towards Allah subhanho wa Taala or the ways of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we should have no other way to we should not be looking anywhere anywhere else. That is the true Mohammed 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 nicer. Um, so I'm going to perfect my my my appearance, I love and I love the professor license, I want to start acting upon it sooner. You know, once there is Hazzard handler or the
He just got married.
He's with his wife.
And it's the first night
after the first night he forgot to do whosoever will fund the gossip. But also 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 sallallaahu sums made this announcement. Upon making this announcement, has a handle on the Allah who got up. And he goes, I'm leaving. I can't 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 way that 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 lifestyle. 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 was gonna listen to me. I know 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. To set this only be one night and they're married. Another girl saying don't come back. She's basically saying make sure you die. No, come back here if 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 her husband. Look at the both of the passions here. One thing that I've turned my face towards the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I'm not going to look anywhere else. And now look at his wife system. She goes to him that if you going with such passion, if you're going with such devotion for the sake of Allah subhana wa
Do not come back because on the day of gamma i want to be called by Allah subhanho wa Taala that, that women who slept one the first night without a husband, because their husband went on the path of jihad.
This is the love of Allah subhanaw taala that they had decreed that the level of love that they have
before we get on to Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, let me just mention something else that came to my mind.
You know, you look at as the Abu Bakar or the Allah one I mentioned this plenty of times before Luca has Abu Bakar Allah
is working with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is making his way towards a hearty thought. And he is now about to carry Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam on his shoulders and claim god how do you handle you've seen how he thought.
Has anybody seen hydrophobia?
You've seen Ben Nevis have any right when they come in? Ah. Okay, Ben Navasky rd Monza half the height of Ben Nevis
and hazard Abubakar on the Allah 100 there was no trial you go to Paris out today. There's a track that goes around the mountain and takes you to the top takes you approximately four hours to claim as Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu carried the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on his shoulders and took him to a hurry. before this happened
jebra Isla de salatu salam comes to the solar Lassen Allahu alayhi wa sallam and says Look, listen to what he's saying to him. He says, Allah is asking
to ask Hasidic Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu that is he happy with Allah subhanho wa Taala
Luke who's asking, asking him and has the process some time around, and at that time has ibaka just had a cloth over him tied with some kind of, you could say some kind of thing just tight as coughed together.
And has ibaka said,
Of course Rasul Allah, I'm happy with my rub. I'm happy whatever way and this is the man that was very wealthy. Now he's not wealthy because he spent on the path of Allah. And after seeing this process, some says to Brian Elisa to Salaam, the hazard ibaka said he is happy with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Then zebra Isla de salatu salam says to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam tell has Abubakar that Allah subhanho wa Taala says as salaam Wiley Kamiya aboubaker 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 Allah subhanho wa Taala and the heavens, the angels say to Allah
that Allah was praising Ibrahimovic Salah to Islam to the Hindus and now the angel say that Allah is 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 insan that loves Allah, 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 Subhan Allah He will hamdulillah he Willa ilaha illa Allah Allahu Akbar, for instance,
has Ibrahim an extra two sons who sing this? Who is praising the one and only Allah? Where does this sound coming from?
He runs his 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.
He says, Did you praise the Almighty Allah subhana wa Taala.
Who's Yes, that was us. We finished now. He could say it again. Praise Allah once more. So he says, Subhana Allah, He will hamdulillah he will lie in, in the LA Allahu Akbar.
And they finished his Abrahamic Sutras, repeated once more for 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, prayer is nothing compares to 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 it once more. He goes, is that a? Is that all you want?
For me to praise the Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala for you to praise the Almighty Allah. He goes take all the sheep that I have.
And then he says against Subhana Allah He will hamdulillah he will
ilaha illa Allah Allahu Akbar
Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam says it once more for me please.
It was no no.
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 give all the codes and they just said again. So by law he will hunger, the law he will La ilaha illa Allah Allahu Akbar.
And no, they stopped again. Now, 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 say. So now the third time they say we don't have any wealth, you need to give us more wealth. So he gave all the camels that he had, because take them say it again. They recited the kalimat once more.
Now he has no wealth left. Now Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam has no wealth left, they finish. And they then they said to him now what you're 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, an extra two Psalms 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 or the words that are happening and so on, Ibrahim is not to sound felt this through just the praise 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, give you
keep me as the shepherd and I will look after your wealth. But as long as I'm with you just keep on let me just listen to Subhana Ly 100 Allahu Allah, Allah in the lower level Akbar, just let me keep on listening to us. 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 wa Donna May Allah subhana 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 us 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 subhanaw taala protect all the Muslims around the world. Hey
