The only thing that will save us is our love for Allah and His Messenger (peace be upon him).
In this beautiful Khutba Shaykh Faid gives us examples from the lives of the companions of the Prophet (blessing and peace be upon him) and how they attained closeness to Allah.
Allah raised the Sahaba because of this din and before that they were nothing. Upon reflection we see that these amazing men, women, and children were chosen for this religion and acted accordingly.
Allah chose you for this religion, so appreciate this blessing. He tells us in the Qur’an, “Those who are guided, we will increase them in guidance” [Qur’an 47:7] Imam Shafi‘i said “Allah has chosen you and given you this blessing, look after this blessing. Verily if you disobey Allah, Allah will take this blessing away from you.”
