Day 5 : Sincerity is the way of salvation
Al Ikhlas Tariq Al khalaas 5
Ustadha Eman started praising Allah (swt) and sending dua for the students.
After mentioned about all Ikhlas I seeking knowledge . We are now tackling all Ikhlas in the love . Let’s see the hadith
Hadith:من سرَّه أن يجِدَ حلاوةَ الإيمانِ فليُحبَّ المرءَ لا يُحِبُّه إلَّا للهِ ” . الراوي : أبو هريرة المحدث : المنذري
المصدر : الترغيب والترهيب الصفحة أو الرقم: 4/79 ( From the secret of the sweetness of the faith is that you love a person except for Allah (swt) )
If anyone want to taste the sweetness of the faith , you should love people for Allah , not for yourself .
The love of the believer is connected to the faith (محبة الؤمن الوصلة لحلاوة الايمان). Is that
You must sincerely love for Allah (swt) (لابد ان تمون خالصة الله تعالى)
You will not taste the faith you are not sincere in the love . You need to be sincere to Allah (swt) , not looking at the person but Allah (swt) , because you want to be close to Allah (swt) by this love .
Must not be tinged with should wordily benefit (غير مشوبة بالأغراض الدنيوية) gift ,call,message, wealth … Or
Not even a human need (ولا الحظوظ البشرية) feeling ,love , be connected . These two things will spoil the love . If you are having demand and expectation . The lure love should make you happy and satisfy and make you love for Allah (swt) . Not the love you see on tv . It shouldn’t make you cry and sad .
The one who love someone for some wordily matter of need
To be sincere in love is the most difficult task , because it’s related to the emotion . Prophet Muhammad(ﷺ) said that if anyone love a person for wordily matter or need the love will be discontinue. You need the base which is Al Ikhlas , that is the fuel will make it continue forever . You will not be in touch to be keep the love going on but when you love sincerely hen it will be forever till paradise . Al Ikhlas is the base and the blessing . You might see bit see some people for many times but still you love when you them and when you see them it as if you never left them .
If you really love then allaah will tested it with the person you love , if you get effected then this is not for Allah (swt) . The one without Al Ikhlas who will not get what he is looking for , then the love will be discontinued .
The love if the believer should be all the time(محبة المؤمن وظيفة دائمة)
either you need something or no(وحدت الأغراض او عدمت) . For instance , you have someone you always in touch ,you love her … And the one you have no connection also you should love her . To do Al Ikhlas in the love is easier with the one you don’t know but the one you know is more difficult .
The love of the believers is from the Ibadah which must be with Al Ikhlas .(محبة المؤمن من العبادات التي لابد من الاخلاص). Meaning the love with Al Ikhlas is Ibadah .Friendship might not be Ibadah but love for Allah (swt) should be .
You need to know the love for Allaah , is one of the most difficult task and it’s very rare you find it (اعلم ان التراب في الله من اصعب الأمور اشاهد) Because the reward is too high .
It exist with people who are are (ووجده في الأشخاص نادر) it’s is rare to find .
But the one who really does it is the one who has been through the nurturing of Allah (swt) (ولا يقوم بها الا من سبقت العناية الربانية) . For instance you love someone and Allah (swt) will put you in a situation and if it disturb the love then it is not sincere . A the nurturing will go through different ways . Why are we getting hurt from people ? Because allaah want to test us and want us to be pure in your life . It’s not an easy task and there is a nurturing . That is the meaning of love for Allah (swt) . The love is not related with more connection . The one who get that true love is the one who goes through many nurturing .
The love in this life ,this time is based on personal benefits (المحبة في هذا الزمان قائمة علي المصالح الشخية), the majority of the love nowadays is Personal benefit …
It just come in the way and will perish (وهذه المحبة العرضية التي نزول ولا تدوم) the temporary love will perish . You see the children want the love from. After going school, it changes with the teacher then the friends too .. For year to year you love different people , this was a temporary love . Then when the child grow he doesn’t need this love anymore . And this love goes away . The one who loves for Allah (swt) will never change even if when he is in the grave . Look at Nabi (صلى الله عليه و سلام) he still loved khadija (Ra) after so many years .
The one who love you for some matter will disconnect you sooner or later , either he gets what he wants or no .(فمن احبك الامر ولى عند انقضائها او عدم الحصول عليه)
On this that (wordily personal needs) ,in general will not be rewarded in the hereafter , because they are getting the share in the Dunya . (وعلي هذا تجري عامة محبة الخلق بعضهم ببعض)
And it will nit benefit them (ولا ينفعهم)
May be it will leads to hypocrisy(ربما يؤدي الي المنفاق) ,compromised () you do things which you don’t need , because no sincerity . As when you love then you follow . And you will blindly follow and give up so much in your religion for the sake of the person . You will visit or do a deed for the person .
Surah Az-Zukhruf: 67 : الْأَخِلَّاءُ يَوْمَئِذٍ بَعْضُهُمْ لِبَعْضٍ عَدُوٌّ إِلَّا الْمُتَّقِينَ The friends shall on that day be enemies one to another, except those who guard (against evil).
The two friends who will have forever friendship is those who have Taqwa ,and not desires . Two of them are Muttaqeen then it will be till paradise . Other friends who are not muttaqee will be enemies in the Day of Judgement . Have Taqwa if you want to be sincere in your love . Then it will be in Dunya and Akhira .
The sincere one in the one are the Muttaqee, (المتقون هم تدوم وتتصل محبتهم و خلتهم) which fiends which will last forever , as they don’t follow their desires .
Anything which is for Allah (swt) will continue and be everlasting(وما كان الله آدم و اتصل)
And anything not for Allah (swt) will be discontinue and separated ( وما كان لغير الله انقطع و انفصل)
Put a barrier and don’t follow your desires .
