also you can you will see yet in Quran, Allah Allah Allah it will live in a manner of Allah to RT well at mo to Allah intimacy.

00:00:47--> 00:00:52

My dear brothers and my dear sisters, I want to talk to you about responsibility,

00:00:54--> 00:01:03

responsibility. There's not a single person I missed us, except that there are some responsibilities that Allah Allah azza wa jal

00:01:04--> 00:01:53

has given to him and allotted to him. There is not a single person, I missed us, the old, the young, the child, the Father, the parent, the mother, the husband, the wife, the grandchild, every single one of us has a responsibility. Some of those responsibilities are familial responsibilities, some of those responsibilities or responsibilities to society, some maybe responsibilities to your workplace, but the fact of the matter is that there is responsibilities on the shoulder of every single one of us. And then there are those people who uphold these responsibilities, and they do their dues. And there are other people who do not.

00:01:54--> 00:02:03

But we know that Allah said in the Quran, and he told us in the Quran in more than one place, that the reason why he had created

00:02:04--> 00:02:42

this entire system that we're in, so that you will test us, Allah taught told us in the Quran, he said Allah the Halacha moto will Hayata Leah will welcome a ucommerce No hamara he created life and death. And what was the purpose of this? He did that so that he may test us which one of us is better in actions. He told us also in Surah Hood, that he had created the heavens and the earth, who will lead the Holika sama Watty will visit that the a yam what can I show who Alma that He is the One Who created the heavens and the earth

00:02:44--> 00:03:08

in six days, and his throne was on top of the water, Lea Bill welcome newcomers and he did so so that he may test us which one of us is going to be better in actions. In other words, which one of us is going to fulfill those responsibilities that Allah has placed on our shoulders? Because every single responsibility that you and I have,

00:03:09--> 00:03:50

it won't, it will not go untested. Allah will ask you of every single thing. And Allah told us that in the Quran, as well when he said in Allahu Allah al Williams with cholera, Allah will not transgress and oppress upon people in the slightest bit. Every person is going to be questioned, there will be my wife zine, there will be skills Allah calls the skills element was enough. One other rumor was enough, Polly young Milka Yama, and we place on the Day of Judgment, the skills that are the skills of Judge justice.

00:03:51--> 00:04:34

Fella Tula munificent trigger, then not a soul will be oppressed, in the least meaning every single person will have to pay up on that day. And as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, in a hadith, he said, lead to additional hope. You will give the rights of other people on the Day of Judgment, whether you like it or not, you fulfill them in this life and Hamdulillah you did not fulfill them in this life, there is a day of judgment and you're going to be asked those rights that your family had, you're going to be asked about that the rights that your wives had, you're going to be asked about that the rights that your husband's had, you're going to be asked about that those

00:04:34--> 00:04:40

that your children had, there, you're going to be asked about those as well that children do their parents.

00:04:41--> 00:04:42

Everyone's going to be asked

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

and not a single person who was neglectful will be let go the Prophet said lead to additional Rococo Hector, you are daily shuttle Jaha immunise shuttle corner you will definitely have a surety good

00:05:00--> 00:05:15

Give up the rights of other people, you will deliver the rights of other people to them to a point that even the sheep that doesn't have horns, will be will be compensated for the pain that it had to suffer from those that had horns.

00:05:17--> 00:06:03

Because that was a violation. That was a violation of rights. So you're going to be asked, there's a concept of responsibility in Islam. And it's a very important and central concept. The reason why Allah had created life and death is because there's a reckoning. And because there's questions, and the reason why Allah had created the heavens and the earth, is because there's a question that you will be there's questioning as well. And Allah told us in the Quran, that questioning is related to everything, not just related to one aspect of your life, Allah said in the summer, while Bazzara, while the cooloola, aka canon homeschooler, the ears of yours, your gaze, and your sight, and your

00:06:03--> 00:06:41

heart, all of those are going to be brought into question on the Day of Judgment. So you're going to be asked about every aspect of your own personal existence, let alone those aspects of your, or of your existence that are related to other people and your relationship with other people. There are those people who make mistakes, who fall short, who do not end up fulfilling their rights. And then sometimes they go and other, they commit another sin as well. Because a they're unable to fulfill their responsibilities be. They don't want they want to be in a situation where they don't they don't have to assume the responsibilities.

00:06:43--> 00:06:45

I don't have any responsibility.

00:06:46--> 00:07:32

It wasn't part of my responsibility. I'm not responsible for this. That's an even greater sin. Allah told us in the Quran, and he said that while many acts of healthy attend el Eastman, so may or may be here, Barry and fucka, Dick forgot the tama level down and what is my Medina, that the person who ends up committing a sin either a healthy, which is a major sin, or isn't or any other type of sins as well, whoever commits a major or a minor sin, whoever does anything that's wrong. And then after he's done that wrong to me, or maybe he buddy and then he absolves himself of responsibility says I'm not the one responsible for this. I don't take responsibility for this action, even though he's

00:07:32--> 00:07:46

the one who committed this action. May or may be here but here, Allah says fella data, Malibu, Dan, what if man will Bina this person has, has fabricated a serious line.

00:07:48--> 00:08:29

And on top of that he has a clear sin on his plate as well. Not just a sin, for his action to begin with, but another sin because he's not taking responsibility for the wrong he's done. My dear brothers, it is really irresponsible for you to wronged someone and did not take responsibility for it. If you've hurt, hurt someone, you've harmed someone you've done wrong to someone, then the right thing at that point is that you take responsibility for that action, you'll never be able to clear your slate have that sin unless you take responsibility. I know sometimes it's even, it's very difficult for us to take responsibility and stand up to the challenge. But if you don't, that's

00:08:29--> 00:09:07

another sin. That's another wrong, you've done one wrong and you've tried to fix that wrong by committing another wrong because a lot of times it's very psychologically comforting for you to just turn the other cheek and say to yourself, This has nothing to do with me. But on the day of judgment, this is becomes even more of a problem because now you have two sins that you've committed one, the harm that you had inflicted upon someone else, or the sin that you had committed in the rights of someone else. And now on top of that, you don't want to take responsibility as well. You and I are all responsible Allah had created this heavens and the earth as well these heavens and the

00:09:07--> 00:09:09

earth as well. For what

00:09:11--> 00:09:31

for a reckoning for a day of judgment, this is the doddle if de la This is the world in which we are tested on the Day of Judgment is our report card. I asked a lot of people to make us from the people who received their book with their right hand. Allahu Amin or SallAllahu ala Sayidina Muhammad in early he was IBH marine

00:09:39--> 00:09:47

and hamdulillah Hamdan UEFI in your MO You can film as either or SallAllahu. Ala Sayidina Muhammad in or Allah early he was so happy he married

00:09:48--> 00:09:51

my dear brothers and my dear sisters.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

Every one of us is responsible. The husband is responsible. The wife is responsible

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

The child is responsible, the father is responsible. And one of the reasons for our problems in relationships is because nobody wants to take up those responsibilities. Everybody wants to pretend that there are no responsibilities, you are considered responsible. There are so many people now that are saying, You know what the burden of marriage I just cannot handle so they end up stepping out of marriage just because they can't handle the burden of marriage. Well, guess what? Guess what life is not jokes and play. Life is responsibility. Allah created the heaven and the heavens and the earth. So that he may ask you on the Day of Judgment, what did you do inside of it, he created life

00:10:44--> 00:11:02

and death. So after death, there's a reckoning. And then you're asked again, you are responsibility, you are responsible, even if you even if you delete the responsibility of marriage for your life, you're going to be responsible for other things, that concept of responsibility, you will never be able to escape.

00:11:03--> 00:11:09

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us in a very beautiful Hadith, a hadith that all of you know.

00:11:11--> 00:11:45

And all of us know, but very few of us always keep in mind. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, could not come raw in what could newcomers own and raw at every one of you happens to be a shepherd, and what everyone is responsible, everyone will be asked, everyone will be questioned, for the responsibility that Allah has given to this person. You can't just escape your problems by turning the other cheek from responsibilities. You have to man up and woman up to responsibilities.

00:11:47--> 00:12:32

The Prophet continued sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said that the leader is responsible for the entirety of the flock. The man is responsible for the family unit as a whole, the woman is responsible for the household and the children. Everyone is responsible. Every single individual has something under their care. You don't take care of this responsibility. Then there's a questioning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, GAFA bill, Eastman, and you'll the year, a year old are my rule that the person who doesn't look after that responsibility of his family, he wastes them away. That person, the prophets are seldom said it's sufficient for a person to be sinful if he

00:12:32--> 00:12:39

does such a thing. So when you say I'm just going to turn the other cheek from the responsibilities because I just can't bear it.

00:12:40--> 00:12:41

So the T word.

00:12:44--> 00:13:03

Just that's not an excuse to drop the responsibilities. The prophets of Allah who Allah said limb said, the person who doesn't fulfill the responsibility of those under his care, it is sufficient. This one aspect of negligence is sufficient for the person to be evil.

00:13:04--> 00:13:45

You are responsible. Even if you turn the other cheek for marriages, you'll still be responsible, because you might have children that you will be responsible for. You might have a parent who you're responsible for, you might have an uncle, who you may be responsible for, you will be responsible at the end of the day for yourself and your own actions with Allah azza wa jal. And on top of that, some of the LMR they actually believe and this I believe Allah, he is a considerably strong opinion, that breaking up marriages reason lessly. And this is not a reason. I'm not willing to take responsibility. Because you should have thought about that when you got into the contract.

00:13:46--> 00:14:28

Breaking up marriages without any reason is a sin. It's haram, it's considered sinful. This is the opinion of a number of scholars, including Ben Tamia and others. Why? Because the purpose that Allah has placed us with on this earth is so we develop this earth, Allah has made the marriage unit for a person, you have children, you procreate, and you have another generation and you develop a group of righteous and practicing people. This is the purpose. It's not child's play. It's not a game. You can't just step out of it. When you say to yourself, I don't want this anymore. And that goes for the man and the woman. The woman has a group of responsibilities, which a lot of them neglect. The

00:14:28--> 00:14:52

men have a group of responsibilities which a lot of us neglect as well. You have to stand up to the challenge you have to fulfill those responsibility. When you don't do that. You are considered sinful. You will be asked on the Day of Judgment. You are my school you're responsible on the Day of Judgment. This is one of the things that you will be asked about you've taken an oath AMITA leave a very strong oath.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

And Allah said, Whoa, fool with it in the Ladakh animus order, fulfill the oath big

00:15:00--> 00:15:08

As you're going to be asked about the old state you take, you're going to be asked about the oath that you take. And in the past,

00:15:10--> 00:15:16

as the scholars of the fsid, they mentioned that when Allah says,

00:15:17--> 00:15:40

what has not been committed can Haleiwa and the woman they took a strong oath from you, they said that in early Islam, every single person that would get married, there will be an oath that he would have to take. And the oath would be that I will stay in this marriage, and I will fulfill all of my responsibilities as a man.

00:15:42--> 00:15:45

And I will never harm the person,

00:15:46--> 00:15:48

I will never harm the other party.

00:15:49--> 00:15:49

And

00:15:51--> 00:16:29

it's only when I am no longer capable of remaining in this relationship without harming the other party. It's only in that situation where I let go. This was an oath that every man had to take. And people were responsible for this. This is the oath that Allah Azza wa Jalla talked about. So you have to fulfill that oath. It's only when you become incapable. There's some reason in your life that makes you no longer capable. That's the only reason why you're excused to let go of that oath because you're going to be asked about these promises and the oath that you have with people. My dear brothers. Another thing that you'll be asked about is your tongue, and everything you say with

00:16:29--> 00:17:03

your tongue. Allah subhanho wa Taala he said, The Hola Hola. Hola, Nana Quinton after all, you will be asked about everything that you fabricate. Because nowadays, we have every single person wants to be a Mufti. This is the reality any gathering you going to. The easiest topic for everyone to discuss is the dean, I think, I believe, who are you to think? Who are you to believe? Where did you get the qualifications to think and to believe and to decide on your own? Where did you get all that?

00:17:04--> 00:17:42

Because when you fabricate, you are questioned by Allah on the Day of Judgment, if you don't know another one of those things is Allah says in the Quran, yeah. Okay. How many times have you let read the Quran in your life to know what's in the Quran? Find me the verse I've been personally, I've heard this comment so many times where people say this is no Quran, or when I used to teach children, children would come and tell me, my dad told me this is in the Quran. I said, Well, Allah, he had been reading the Quran for 25 years. I've never seen this ayah in the Quran, where is it? Where is it? You can't just fabricate you're going to be asked and that's why Abdullah humanity grew

00:17:42--> 00:18:04

up Leila. He said that I was with the unsalted from the sahaba. And he said, I met over 100 from the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Every one of them when they were asked a question, they would say, go ask the next one. I don't know the answer. But now if we have a gathering of 10 people, there's 15 fatwas.

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

Wallahi

00:18:08--> 00:18:47

Yeah, whiny fear Allah you cannot just steal upon the deen of Allah or Buddha is it was Jalon what you have no knowledge of these are the Sahaba who are with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this tabular is saying I met 121 of them. And 20 of them, every one would say go ask the next person until when? Until the question would come back to the first person. Because they all had fear of Allah azza wa jal, they didn't. If you don't know what you say you don't know it's not going to decrease from who you are. It won't decrease from from your status, it will only increase your status before Allah and you will be teaching the people in your care how to be responsible for every

00:18:47--> 00:19:32

single thing that you say, and every single thing you do that and every party will be asked in their own way. The child will be asked in his own way, the father will be asked in his own way. The prophets are also going to be asked by the way, Allah told us of this in the Quran, he said felonious Elena livina Otto sila Elohim, Wallace, l&l Masano wilderness l&l mousseline, we will ask those people to whom the prophets were sent, meaning the aquarium like us, did the prophets deliver the message? Did they give you all of the guidance that you needed to make sure that you are successful on the Day of Judgment? So the people of the prophets will be asked, did they deliver?

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

And the prophets will be asked as well? Did you deliver? So every party in every relationship even in this relationship of message from Allah azza wa jal to humanity, every party is being questioned. The prophets are being questioned, their followers are being questioned. The parents will be questioned, the children will be questioned. It goes both ways. There are rights that parents have to their children, as well. Many times parents have the idea that it's only one way around. No

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

which both ways you're going to be asked as a father and a mother and the child will be asked as a child.

00:20:06--> 00:20:40

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was very fulfilling of the rights of his children. When the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam would come home from a tribal he would go see Fatima before all of his wives, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, every single day, he may not be able to see all of his wives the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would go to Father's house himself, and he would go and play with an Hassan and Hussein, this was a daily practice of Rasulullah. And she knew that so she would get him ready to change the diapers perfecting and, and send them off to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam.

00:20:42--> 00:20:50

Why? Because this is the child of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. There's a responsibility that parents have to the children as well.

00:20:52--> 00:21:31

Fatima has got children, she's busy. The Prophet understands that she's a mother, she has to look after Ali. She's got responsibilities, abilities to Ali, the Prophet SAW Selim has the ability to quickly walk by her house, she has an Zane say a few beautiful words, to follow them, and then walk away. Maybe Fatima is not going to be able to come what happens to us. I'm the father. I'm the mother, he's got to come to me. She's got to come to me. Both of you have responsibilities my brother, you're going to be asked as a parent just as he's going to be asked as a child, if he's neglectful? Do you want to be the same person on the Day of Judgment? If she's neglectful? Do you

00:21:31--> 00:21:41

want to be that same person on the Day of Judgment? On top of that, there are four things that every single person will be asked about as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he told us in a hadith of

00:21:43--> 00:22:28

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Learn the Zulu Kodama Hebden, you're a woman Tiana, that the two feet of every person will not move from before Allah azza wa jal on the Day of Judgment, until the person is asked about four things. He's going to be asked about his life, and how he spent that life. He's going to be asked about the knowledge he had, or she had, and what they did with that knowledge, he will be asked about the wealth that he had, and she had, and what they did with that wealth, how the earn the wealth, especially fathers, where are you earning your wealth from? You are going to be responsible before Allah azza wa jal about this one right here.

00:22:29--> 00:22:31

Where he earned that wealth from

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

and where he spent that wealth

00:22:34--> 00:23:15

and the body and how he used that body. Did he use the physical strength that Allah had blessed bestowed him with to abuse other people? Or did he use that strength or she used that strength that Allah had given him or her to help other people and eight other people who probably who may not have that strength? Who didn't have that power? Who didn't have that ability? Who didn't have that use? Every one of us will be asked about these four things and every other relationship we have as well. I asked Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make our questioning. Easy for us. Allah Amin Robina attina Fifth dunya hacer una or Phil authority has worked in algebra now.
