00:00:03--> 00:00:31

Welcome everyone to another class of sahih al Bukhari and we're looking at the second Hadith, which is the second Hadith in the in the abridged version that you have before you now, but it is not the second Hadith in the original body. Remember whenever I say second and Buhari, we are studying the abridgement that summarized copy but even every geminal and delicacy. And the hadith is the hadith of NSW. Malik Radi Allahu Allah and us

00:00:32--> 00:01:14

are the Allahu taala. And who was actually a young boy when he came to meet the prophets, Allah Allahu Allah wa salam, because he was brought to the prophets of Allah who Allah said, Lim, to become a servant for the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. And when it comes to how the prophets Allah, Allahu alayhi wa sallam would treat children. And as was one of the key sources for that. Why? Because he was one of the children in the care of the Prophet, as well as best for the Allah, Allah and would frequent the house of the Prophet. But despite the fact that Abbas is close to the Prophet, he's cousin of the prophets of Allah who it was salam, and he is also the nephew of the

00:01:14--> 00:01:51

wife of the prophets of Salaam. And this is even closer because he's always there serving the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. So he is able to tell you about the Prophet things that perhaps other companions cannot because again, he's got a very, very tight relationship with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. And one of the things that Ernesto Maliki told us about the prophets, Allah Allahu alayhi, wa sallam, he said that I was with the prophet for 10 years. And he never said to me about something I didn't do. Why did you do this? Why did you not do this? And something that I did do? Why did you do it?

00:01:52--> 00:02:38

So he didn't ask why this was one of the things that I was told. And it really is a prophetic technique in terms of raising children. Why? Well, we're told that the best way of parenting is that you negotiate with the child, you kind of tell them that, or you negotiate and ask, what's the reason behind that? So you're trying to reason with them, right? But the prophet is not reasoning. He's not asking why. And they say the reason for this is, because sometimes children out of fear, if you ask too many questions, they might end up lying, to cover up the situation. So instead, when the Prophet can see this scenario, already, he's just directive. If he's told him to do something, he'll

00:02:38--> 00:02:39

just say it again.

00:02:40--> 00:02:43

Instead of saying, why didn't you do this,

00:02:44--> 00:03:15

you should do this. And this way, there is the opportunity of retraining the child to lie. So this is honest, and he obviously got to live very long as well. And he is actually one of the major sources of Hadith. And the reason for that is because he's very young at the time of the Prophet, and hence, it also got to be one of the elderly companions who got to live very long as well. So with those two factors together, he got to see many of the next generation or let's put it this way many of the next generation got to see an A signal Malik Radi Allahu Allah to Allah and,

00:03:16--> 00:03:19

and in Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam Paul,

00:03:20--> 00:04:15

from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who said, the Latin man could Nephi wotja, Halawa and Iman, three things, if they were to be in any person, he will find the sweetness of faith, three qualities if they're possessed by any human being, they'll find the sweetness of faith. Now, the reality is, out of these three qualities, essentially all of them go back to number one. Quality number one is that a person should have more love for Allah and His Messenger than anything else. Okay, more love for Allah and His Messenger than anything else. And this quality here essentially accommodates every good thing that you can think of. So the next quality right after is but a

00:04:15--> 00:04:29

manifestation of your love for Allah subhana wa Tada as well. Because when you love a person for no other reason except for Allah, that is because of your love for Allah subhanaw taala that you're that you have that love for other people. Similarly,

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

the next quality is well, it is an offshoot of the first one, and hatred of returning to disbelief. A person should have hatred of returning to disbelief just as he hates being thrown into the fire. Okay, just as He hates being thrown into the fire. So, you hating returning to disbelief or the hatred of a human being returning to disbelief is essentially

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

because of his love for Allah subhanaw taala so essentially, the key ingredient for you to have sweetness of faith is that love Allah subhanaw taala and to love the messenger of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada every single thing other than this because this hadith has three things, right? If you look at some of the other Hadith, some of them are specific to women, others are general to men and women alike, but all of them have other qualities, all of those are offshoots of this first one, and that is your love for Allah Subhana Allah to Anna, and your love for the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, always another very important point as well. The next two qualities in this hadith,

00:05:41--> 00:06:33

they are litmus tests that the prophet is mentioning, okay. If you believe that you love Allah and His Messenger more than everything else within this world, then ask yourself, Do you love your fellow Muslims for no other reason except for Allah? Do you have love for a fellow Muslim of yours? For no other reason except for Allah subhanho wa taala. So the Prophet is putting this as a litmus test. Ask yourself this question. Do you love your fellow Muslim for no other reason you don't have any particular gains from them? There's no financial relationships you have with them. There is no marital ties that are there there is no you're not looking for any for anything from them. But you

00:06:33--> 00:06:38

just love that human being. For no other reason except for Allah Allah azza wa jal.

00:06:40--> 00:07:30

So when you have that love for other people, for no other reason, except for ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. That is a sign that you love Allah, and that you love the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam. Now, here's another very important point over here. The Prophet is saying that three things if a person has he has the sweetness of faith, meaning there is faith with sweetness, and there is faith also without sweetness as well. Okay. And this is actually very expressively mentioned in another Hadith, albeit weak, the Hadith approximates to that, that a person who has Eman with sweetness, that is the emaan that is going to take a person to Jana without entering hellfire. And

00:07:30--> 00:08:12

as for a person who has eemaan, without the sweetness, that is the faith that will at least save the person from the fire. Even if he ends up entering that fire at some point, you can see the difference. So when a person is at a level where they can actually feel that sweetness now, is this a physical sweetness? Or is it metaphorical? Obviously, it's not physically sweet in your mouth, for instance, right? It's a metaphor to refer to your love for this faith that you actually feel a sense of tranquility with the faith, you will feel a sense of happiness, you feel a sense of joy, you feel Allah, He will tell you something, when you start to get the sweetness of faith, life will feel

00:08:12--> 00:08:13

good.

00:08:14--> 00:08:26

You know how sometimes people feel gloomy and sad, and they feel unhappy, and life is just not doing it for them. Right. When you have faith.

00:08:27--> 00:08:47

And you have the sweetness of faith, life will start to seem beautiful, the very things that appear average to you today, they will become above average, the very things that you love to eat today, you will sit before them and you'll enjoy them. There are people out there that simply have

00:08:48--> 00:09:32

tomatoes and onions to eat. And they're happy with that. And they're very happy with that. Why? Because they managed to become content with that they're managed to be happy with that. They've understood that this right here is a tempo of life. So when you have that love for Allah subhanaw taala the simple things in life will start to make you happy. The very things that were irritating, they will no longer seem irritating, the average things will start to become above average within your life as well. Now, here's a couple of important things especially about the last part of this hadith number one, there is a narration that shows you that the last part of the Hadith number three

00:09:32--> 00:09:45

in the Hadith, which is an hatred of returning to disbelief just as a person hates being thrown into the fire. This is not a litmus test for everyone. Because not every one of us has tasted disbelief. You understand?

00:09:47--> 00:10:00

How can we use hatred for disbelief or returning to disbelief? Just as a person hates being thrown into a fire? How can we use this quality as

00:10:00--> 00:10:19

One of the litmus tests or tests for the sweetness of faith when not everyone missed us is actually tasted disbelief. So this is specific to those people who can into Islam and you have to be cognizant of the fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is speaking to the Sahaba, who are largely people who came into faith.

00:10:21--> 00:11:06

So he's speaking to them about something that will be very, very specific to them. For us, we have the second litmus test, and that is that do we love other people for no other reason except for Allah mobilicity. Well, Jana, and we know this clause that I'm putting over here from the other narration of this hadith in which the prophets of Allah where it was similar, he said, The third type of person who has the sweetness of faith is the person who hates to be thrown into the fire, okay, or who hates to go back to being a Jew or a Christian, go back to being a Jew or a Christian, just as He hates being thrown into the fire as well. So this is not general for everybody. But it is

00:11:06--> 00:11:27

specific to those people who actually happen to be disbelievers. And they came into faith, but and hamdulillah for the most of us, we have been born, we have been blessed by Allah subhanaw taala, to have the ability to call ourselves Muslims from the day we were born. But of course, even those who accept Islam, they have another virtue that Allah subhanaw taala clears the slate for them.

00:11:29--> 00:11:54

There are other a hadith, which gives us other qualities, all of which go back to the sweetness of faith. So the Prophet said In another Hadith, he said the Lathan also three men could Nephi he was at the beginning, the Halawa. Tell Iman, three things if they happen to be within a person, he will find the sweetness of faith. Number one, the Prophet SAW Selim, he said, and in fact, often

00:11:56--> 00:12:07

this hadith is not in the book. This is me quoting it from another Hadith book. The prophets are similar. He said Al in far afield Qatar spending when a person has nothing,

00:12:09--> 00:12:58

it's very easy to be a multimillionaire and then spend, obviously, because when you spend for the sake of Allah, and you have absolutely nothing, a lot of money, that will just be a small fraction of your wealth, and you won't even feel it. You know, one of the brothers, who is a dear friend of mine, he's a multimillionaire. And he said, once you get to $50 million, everything else in life is the same. Meaning all the rest of the money that you ever earn in life is just going to be extra money, you're never actually going to need it. So when you have that type of wealth, where you can give 5070 $100,000 for the sake of Allah, you can give millions of meals for the sake of Allah and

00:12:58--> 00:13:47

it doesn't even feel like anything, then is that really a type of giving? That is telling of a person's faith? Do you understand what I'm saying? person might not even be faithful to be honest with you, you might have people who are not very faithful but they just give for the sake of Allah because they're going to be getting tax breaks at the end of the day, right. But the prophets I said, Let me said that Al in far afield Iftar giving when you have not, that is a sign that a person is truly experiencing this. This faith, were birthed through Salam, and spreading salam to people that you see all around you and the prophets of Allah who it was salam. He was asked in another

00:13:47--> 00:14:19

Hadith is one of the companions asked the prophets Allah Allahu Allah said, Let me set a you'll Islamically which one of the things in Islam are the best, he said and Toto mcbomb was salam ala moana raft woman Lim tariffs that you say Salaam and you give food also to people that you know when people you know not as well. So saying Salam is for everybody it's supposed to be for people you know, when people you don't know when you walk around outside and you see a Muslim take that opportunity to say salaam

00:14:20--> 00:14:59

do it? It's going to develop a bond within you and that person and who knows you might come to a relationship later on. Well, this can this can happen. Sometimes you don't know where you're going to meet a person and what that's going to lead to this can happen. There is one day actually just as a story here. One day, I went to a wedding and I was a person who didn't know anyone at that wedding. I think it was either a wedding or article I can't recall was so long ago Subhan Allah and indicata as I'm walking I think it was a people I was with if you guys know him, Sheikh Yusuf Islam. Does anybody know how

00:15:00--> 00:15:24

I passed away very recently with a very senior scholar from India. And he had written many books. And sometimes he would come over to our house when we were younger. And he used to really like me. So when he would be going somewhere, he would just take me along with him. So, I went to this gathering, and he wanted me to read Quran in the gathering. So in the gathering, I literally just walked into a person,

00:15:25--> 00:15:58

like physically walked into a person he fell in, I fell. And subhanAllah we got talking in this meeting, salaam alaikum. Salaam aleikum exchanged, you know, are you okay? You're okay. And that guy in the most random this place because I didn't know I was going to go to this place. Earlier on in the day, literally, the ship said, you know, people have come along with me, I want you to go to this place and read Quran for them. I said, Okay. So Subhanallah, that brother ended up becoming my brother in law.

00:16:00--> 00:16:38

Who would have thought, you don't know what's going to happen, and where that's going to happen. And so when you see your Muslim just sees, I'm not saying you're going to have a brother in law. That's why they come. But what I'm saying is that it may lead to some higher and more than that, you're going to be getting a job. And I remember another very beautiful incident in the city of El Paso when I was driving, and I parked up at the light. And naturally, you don't want people they pull their windows down to ask you something. Obviously, you pull your window down as well. And you ask the person something as well. So I pulled my window down, somebody else was pulling their window

00:16:38--> 00:16:44

down. So I thought he needed some directions or something. So he said, I said, I'm on a como hematoma. I said, Why are they gonna sit down?

00:16:45--> 00:16:59

So and I was waiting, maybe he's gonna ask me which was the gas station which was the masjid anything. So I said, Is there something I can help you with brother? And he literally said to me, that no, I was just trying to say salaam

00:17:00--> 00:17:01

Subhan Allah.

00:17:02--> 00:17:26

He was just trying to say Salaam and the prophets are suddenly me said in a hadith, Allah do LUCAM Allah che in either for ultimate who to have up to Should I not tell you of something if you were to do it, you would fall in love with one another. You would have mutual love. I missed one another and will Allah He I make you all witnesses that I love this guy even though I have no idea who is

00:17:27--> 00:18:14

the Prophet has said Lim said a few Sidama been spread the salam I missed you that's going to give you love and that love in sha Allah will increase your faith as well. And it will give you that sweetness of faith as well. Another thing the Prophet said in the second Hadith, what in slothful Nassim in UFC he, and also acting justly with people when it comes to your own mistakes. It's very easy for us to point the faults out of other people and say he did wrong. He wronged me in this way. He said this, and she said that and she did this and I saw him doing this. But when you will go wrong. And you're in a position where you have the authority as a parent, perhaps as a husband,

00:18:14--> 00:18:24

perhaps sometimes maybe the authority is the wife as a wife, perhaps. Okay, so whatever your scenario may be, when you have that situation of authority.

00:18:25--> 00:18:29

Are you willing to let people get justice out of yourself?

00:18:31--> 00:19:15

Because the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam he used to do this remarkable kebab. He used to do this, the early caliphs, all of them, there are so many stories of Abu Bakr, Omar, Annie Earthman, many of them were actually brought to justice in the court of law law that they themselves happen to be leaders off. But when it comes to a mistake they made, they would walk away and stand back and say, Okay, we've made the mistake. And one of the most beautiful stories to this effect is the story of the people of summer hunt. Because the people of summer and they were forcefully conquered. And we know that when the Muslim armies are,

00:19:16--> 00:20:00

are dispatched, they are guided to give the people that they're going to a number of of choices. They can either fight that's up to them, or they can choose to accept Islam. Or they can say you know what, we're willing to be liberated by you people Salah with the conditions that they said, And the Army fixes as well. So this Muslim army went to summer and the city of southern which is still known as that city today. And when they got there, they ended up conquering the city without giving them the three choices. So one of the people or some of the people in town they knew that Muslims have this practice of giving the three choices

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

as either you fight, or you give attacks, which is known as Algeria, and you're going to live under Muslim rule from that point onwards, or you accept Islam.

00:20:14--> 00:20:28

So now these people, they knew this, some of them, they ended up going to the Caliph at that time. And they complained, and they said, your general came to our city and conquered the city without giving us these three choices.

00:20:29--> 00:20:48

So obviously, can you imagine that a city has been conquered, and there's an army completely controlling the city at this point. And then some people from that city, they go to the president of the country who has conquered the city, and they say, You know what, your general didn't follow the instructions.

00:20:49--> 00:21:32

That's exactly what happened. And when this happened, the Halifa, he invited or he asked the leader to go to trial, and they literally put him on trial. And the people of Summerland were the other party. And it was ruled that the general made a mistake. And he didn't give them the three options. So they went outside of the city back and left the entire city, the entire army left, and evacuated the city. And then they were given that opportunity. And when the people of some have been the saw this level of willingness to accept your mistake, and holding yourself responsible to the mistake that you've made, many of the people have similar and they accepted Islam willingly.

00:21:34--> 00:22:01

And this way, there was no need for a conquest. But there was a mistake made but what happened, these people, they held themselves up to the same level of justice that they're going to hold other people up to as well. And another Hadith, this is actually a thought of the Allahu taala, that talks about the sweetness of faith as well is a and I thought in which even Masaru said three things.

00:22:02--> 00:22:38

Now, repeatedly, you're saying three things, and three things and three things. Generally, within Hadith literature, you see the number three, a very common number, because three things are usually very simple to remember. Okay? It doesn't necessarily mean these are the only three things. But what I tell you, I've got three things to say, it's going to be very simple for you to recall. And that's why many of the Hadith will be like this, and many of the author will be like this as well, sometimes the number three is actually intended. But other times it's not. And this is one of those times, because obviously there are many things that lead to the sweetness of faith. It's not just

00:22:38--> 00:23:11

these three things. Okay. So these three that Masaru was talking about, he says, number one, don't cool mirror, if it helps leaving off arguing, despite the fact that you know, you happen to be the correct one. It is very difficult to stop arguing when you believe yourself to be on the right and on the truth. And a bit Masaru the saying if you do that you make a practice of it, that my ego is telling me you're right, and you got to fight for yourself, and the person is arguing,

00:23:12--> 00:23:42

and you stay silent, that is a very, very difficult thing to do. But this is among the things that will allow you to taste that sweetness of faith, you will see a serious bit of bitterness at the moment off. Because when you end up swallowing all of the words that you have inside of yourself, you will feel bitter. But in sha Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will take that bitterness and turn it into sweetness for you in trouble. But of course, I go back to something very important. This doesn't mean that you leave

00:23:43--> 00:24:07

injustice to occur. We have a rule in Islam, that whenever we see injustice happening, we have to stop it. Okay, so when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is speaking about leaving an argument, despite the fact that you are the truthful one, this is different. If there's a violation of someone's rights going on, do you understand?

00:24:09--> 00:24:53

Why because if you leave a violation of someone's rights, be it they're your own rights as well. That person will get used to violating people's rights and violation of rights will continue in that way. So the rule of thumb there is that you work towards eradicating that violation of rights. And when you get to the point where you have the upper hand, that's when you forgive. Okay? So you work until you can bring the person to justice. When he's standing trial, you say, You know what, I'm willing to let this go. But now you've told the person and you've given them a lesson that this type of violation of rights is not going to occur with me. Once you've gotten to that point, now you're

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

supposed to forgive and forget. And this is how you understand the verses in the Quran of retaliate.

00:25:00--> 00:25:22

When and forgiving and forgetting because there are some verses in the Quran that say, for enough of them for it to be missing, you might walk up to me if you are going to retaliate, then retaliate in the same way that you had been punished in to begin with, or you had been harmed and violated to begin with. But then there are other verses and many of them as well that say forgive forget that for was for who forgive and forget.

00:25:23--> 00:25:34

At 30 Allahu empty until Allah subhanho wa Taala brings his matter who the last four what would have been my elf? What motivated me what I do, but I ninja healing. He says that,

00:25:35--> 00:26:20

that stick to pardoning and forgiving people. So how do we reconcile between these two? The way to reconcile between these two is that when you have been violated, you fight for your rights so that nobody else can ever be violated. And also so that the oppressor recognizes that you're not going to allow that oppression to occur. And I say this to people that sometimes they say, You know what, we're Muslims that we forgive and let them go. No, no, no, no, no. If anyone violates you, as a Muslim, never let them go. Never let them go. When you get them to the court of law, and you get them to the point where they recognize they're wrong, they have wronged and they have made a

00:26:20--> 00:26:23

mistake, and they shouldn't be doing such a thing.

00:26:24--> 00:26:27

That's when you let them go. One day,

00:26:28--> 00:26:36

I was at a hotel with my wife. We were coming out for breakfast. And as we're coming out for breakfast,

00:26:38--> 00:26:43

there was this lady, she was serving breakfast. And she gave everybody

00:26:44--> 00:26:50

an Egg McMuffin almost, I think that's what it was. And when we came, she served us the pork.

00:26:52--> 00:26:56

And so we said, okay, but don't you have the egg. She says, No, I don't have the egg.

00:26:58--> 00:27:07

And then incidentally, we went back upstairs, I really thought she didn't have any eggs. And I came back. And I noticed she's serving the eggs again.

00:27:09--> 00:27:11

So I went up to the lady,

00:27:12--> 00:27:52

actually, I phoned the lady from my room. And I told her that I'm going to take this very, very seriously, you have discriminated against me for my faith, and you have violated me, I'm going to contact and I was going to do this, by the way, I'm going to contact media channels, I'm going to look for large Facebook pages and campaign against you, I'm going to take a picture of you and I will make your life very, very difficult and miserable, until you apologize for this. And I will ensure that your seniors understand this, that your manager recognizes what you've done, and the horrible and foul violation that you have done to me as a human being.

00:27:54--> 00:27:59

And I kept on saying I was polite and everything I was saying, but I was very assertive. And

00:28:01--> 00:28:39

then she said, Would you be willing to come downstairs, we came downstairs, we started talking. And again, I didn't raise my voice, I didn't curse header, I didn't swear at her. You don't have to do all of those things to get your rights. By the way, you can be very, very polite, you can have a very, very monotonous tone as well. But you can get your message across to people. And you're dealing with people who understand what the law is, and nobody wants to be faced by the law. And when I gave her some more words of such nature, she literally started weeping in front of me into tears. And she said, I'm going to lose my job and how am I going to live? And I made a mistake and

00:28:39--> 00:29:10

this and that. And I said, Okay, well, you're gonna have to apologize to me and my wife as well, because you violated the two of us. And she went, and she apologized to me and she apologized to my wife. Now I know many Muslims, they say, Oh, brother, just forget. No, no, no, don't forget it. When she got to a point where she realized she's violated, and she's going to get into trouble for this, and there's going to be consequences. I said, Okay, I'm willing to let this go. You've understood your problem, and that you shouldn't be doing this again. And we went back to that place again, and no problems.

00:29:11--> 00:29:49

And you have to do this. Because if you allow people to violate you, especially as a Muslim, just because of the fact that you happen to be a Muslim. This is you're not doing a positive thing. There is an aspect of retaliation and there is an aspect of forgiving as well. And the forgiving comes when you get to the stronger position. That's the moment you forgive and you forget, how can you pardon someone when you're in the weekers silo? That's not the moment of pardoning you pardon someone when you have the opportunity to take revenge. That's the time that you're supposed to pardon people. So this is another one of those things, and

00:29:51--> 00:29:57

even was rude. He also said that, while caribou Phil Finn was a hottie,

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

Jimmy

00:30:00--> 00:30:36

Now there are many Hadith we'll we'll leave it at this, and I'll just share one more Hadith that talks about the sweetness of faith as well. This one is a very specific one, and it is specific to women. And this hadith is in almost dark over Hakim al mustard the rock is a book written by Al Imam and Hakim in which he basically claims these are all of the authentic hadith that Behati and Muslim didn't have. Now, what he means by this is they're not in the books of Bukhari and Muslim not that Bukhari and Muslim didn't know these a hadith some of these Hadith are authentic, mentioned in Musa kill him and some of them are not as well.

00:30:37--> 00:30:52

I believe this one is authentic, because remember there has to be later on he goes to authenticated as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, a woman will never feel the sweetness of eemaan until she fulfills the rights of her husband.

00:30:53--> 00:31:38

So sisters, if you feel that I've done everything, but something is just not happening. It's not working. This might be one of those things. The prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam, very clearly, it's a long Hadith and quoting a portion of it, the prophets Allah said let me said Why Allah did you do more to him? Hello, what the emaan had to do help us algea a woman will never feel the sweetness of faith until she fulfills the rights of her husband by this hadith number two, now we go to Hadith number three, Hadith number three is the hadith of eradicated Muslim it. And robotic massaman is among the companions of the prophet who actually attended the Bay Area to Aqaba the

00:31:38--> 00:31:44

Pledge of Allegiance that took place at Aqaba. And what is the SAPA? Well.

00:31:46--> 00:32:06

A Lapa is basically a place right outside of the gym. Alright, if you've been for hedge, you know exactly what I'm talking about, right? You have the various journal right and then you have the last one which is the general to the APA. And right after that is where this bay or this pledge of allegiance took place. And it took place in the year 12, after

00:32:07--> 00:32:52

after the prophethood of the Prophet not after the agent of the Prophet because this is all happening in the early phases of Islam. And there was two of us there's two pledges of pledges of allegiance in Aqaba. There was one in the year 12. And there was another one in the year 13 as well. The first one is literally known as the First Battle APA and the second one is known as the second battle APA. The first one was witnessed by 12 people. One of them was the nadir of this hadith rather to the sonnet. And the second one was witnessed by 73 people and 73 men and two women as well. And this one took place in the year 13 After the prophet hood of the Prophet, and in the year

00:32:52--> 00:33:36

144 After the Hijra of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abu Jaffa and monsoon he made a masjid in this specific location where the pledge of allegiance of Aqaba the first one and the second one took place and it's really not that far from the geminal to occur, but if you have went for Hajj, inshallah all of you get to go for Hajj. You right after you walk past this last Gemini where you're supposed to throw the stones. You see this Masjid? That Masjid signifies the location in which these words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam were said, Okay. That Masjid signifies the location in which this hadith was said by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in

00:33:36--> 00:33:47

which the narrator of this hadith heard from the prophets of salaam we're about to study right now. Okay, what's the Hadith, the hadith of Abba, even a Slamet.

00:33:48--> 00:34:28

He said, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said they're your only Allah Allah to Shinjuku. Billa Isha playa, pledge allegiance to me, that you're, you're not going to be doing the following number one, that you will not associate partners with Allah, that you will not steal, you will not fornicator you will not kill your children. You will not falsely accused innocent people, you will not disobey when order to do good. These are the things in which the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam. These are the things that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam demanded of these very early companions of his to pledge allegiance to the prophets, Allah and send them forth. Now,

00:34:28--> 00:34:47

what's interesting about these things, these are the very things that the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam, pledged allegiance to, or rather the women, they pledged allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for as well in Surah 10 Montana, right, which was actually later on.

00:34:48--> 00:35:00

So the idea of in Montana where Allah says, All prophet of God, whenever the believing women come to you, and they pledge allegiance to you, and they do well

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

Em two, three, all of these six things right Allah Allah who should have been laying sheet and silica now what is Nina? What are they up to now?

00:35:07--> 00:35:47

So all of these things are the same ones over here that pledge of allegiance for the woman to place much later. But it's the same points. So the points didn't change throughout the same points that you see that happen in the battle Ababa in the Pledge of Allegiance of an upper dollar, the same points by which the woman pledged allegiance to the prophets of Salaam. Now, of course, in the Pledge of the woman, the Prophet didn't actually physically touch the hand of any of the women. Rather, we know in the Hadith that the Prophet never touched a woman who was not halal for him, okay, so by only Allah, Allah to Shri Coppola, and she pledged allegiance to me that you're not

00:35:47--> 00:36:01

going to associate partners with Allah subhana wa Tada. Okay, now, all of these sins that the prophet is talking about over here, all of them have an explanation except for this one.

00:36:03--> 00:36:10

Okay. He asked him to pledge allegiance for a number of things, each one of them has an explanation

00:36:11--> 00:36:56

except for committing or associating partners with Allah subhana wa Tada. There is no explanation for this except that you ask Allah to forgive you when you come back to your senses and you believe in Allah subhanaw taala the only and use withhold from associating partners with Allah, what not to do and that you don't steal as well. No setup, stealing has a Pinilla. Similarly, Zina, well let us know and don't do Xena as well. Zina fornication has a penal law as well, well, that up to allow the common don't kill your children. Now, the ruling is not specific to killing your children, but because at that time, some of the people in the pre Islamic era they had a practice of killing

00:36:56--> 00:37:21

children for two reasons. One of them would be that they would kill female children, just because they felt that these children are not going to be of any aid or help to them, right? What even my older two, three, let me tell you them in particular, when they know who they will be asked, or she will ask, Why was I killed? Or why were you killed, depending on the crop. So

00:37:23--> 00:38:01

that's the one type of killing where a female child is born without thinking you just literally bury the child this this is something that used to happen at the pre Islamic era during the pre Islamic era. So the Prophet is forbidding this, this is one of the reasons why the Prophet is saying this. Another reason was when they would have a child, some people would kill even the male children. Why? Because they would be afraid that this child is going to lead to poverty, because child obviously has to come with all sorts of expenses, and so on and so forth. So all of my money is going to get exhausted by this child if I upkeep this child. So that's why the prophets of Allah who Allah said,

00:38:01--> 00:38:45

Let me told them, one of the, one of the things that you have to pledge allegiance to is you cannot kill your children. Because killing any human being is a sin. But maybe someone that's an elderly human being, you get into some sort of fight with them. And there is some brawler, there's some problems that you have, and there's some hatred going on, you can think of a reason, not that it's justifiable, but still you can think of a reason, but this innocent soul, and for what, because you're afraid that that he's not going to be you're not going to be able to fend for this child. Allah subhanaw taala says national nosocomial al we will give this to you and we give risk to you,

00:38:45--> 00:39:23

we sustain you, and we will sustain them as well. Everyone who has children, who is thinking straight, will tell you when I had a child Wallahi by it is increased, that I had the second child that it increased as well. And people that run businesses tell you the same thing that when I had more people working for me, my company started to grow if you're doing your things, right, why? Because what happens is, when you have people under your killer, ALLAH SubhanA, what the outer channels, dear is through you, as a father, you're going to have the risk of your child channeled through you, as a mother, you will have the risk of your children channeled through you as a

00:39:23--> 00:39:48

husband, you will have the risk of your wife channeled through you as a person who has any dependents whatsoever. This will also be channeled through you as a owner of a business as a manager, as someone who's got employees working for them then this will be channeled through you as well. So you will actually increase in this if you think about it, they won't be eating away your risk because Allah has already destined what they will be receiving.

00:39:51--> 00:40:00

So Allah says profiter Salam said Well, Dr. O ladder, do not kill your children. Now again, the ruling is not specific to tree

00:40:00--> 00:40:18

Hold on. But because this was a common practice, obviously, if you can kill killing your children, then other people, they wouldn't dare killing except kill other people, except if they happen to have some sort of animosity between them, right? Because then there will be blood between the different carbine tribes.

00:40:20--> 00:40:21

You know, when you kill

00:40:22--> 00:40:40

one of the people of a certain tribe, they're gonna come after you This is tribal culture we're talking about. So people will do their killing other people that were adults from other tribes or even their own tribe, because there'll be a lot of consequences, your own children, if you kill them in their culture, there were no consequences.

00:40:41--> 00:40:56

Well, to be bogged down in and do not bring a false allegation. Don't concoct lies against people don't make up things against people. Don't accuse people who happen to be innocent, and they have no

00:40:57--> 00:41:27

there is no reality to your accusation. Now both are and by the way, is a little bit more than a simple lie. So it's not saying don't lie against people, Allah's prophets, I said, Let me said and in the Quran, it says the same as well. While I tend to be bogged down, do not bring a book done. Don't bring a slanderous word, the word Baudin is any lie, which leads to a scandal. Okay?

00:41:28--> 00:41:33

You know how it works. If you were to make up anything about anyone,

00:41:34--> 00:42:10

and you will get it out to enough people, there's there are going to be some people out there who will simply accept what you have to say. Or at least in their minds, there will be a question mark around this person, even if they doubt that this actually happened, let's say you say, you know, I saw XYZ, you know, he comes to the masjid. But at the end of the day, he goes to the bar, I saw him at the bar. Now the question is, what were you doing at the bar, right? So, but nonetheless, if you make up a lie like this, most people won't even critically think like that. Right? But

00:42:11--> 00:42:19

the idea is, many people will immediately start to say, oh, yeah, I heard that that guy goes to the bar, right?

00:42:20--> 00:42:45

It'll just be something that is going to be lingering in his life for a very long time, perhaps the entire life as well. So the Prophet SAW Selim said, don't bring things that are lies that happened to lead the end up leading a person to scandals, right, especially when it comes to scandals with the opposite gender. Now, if you say, a claim like that, you know that brother, he's got a beard at all, but I saw him making out with a lady.

00:42:47--> 00:42:54

Many people will say, Well, what business do you have telling other people this, but there's going to be a lot more people who say, Oh, it was a biller.

00:42:55--> 00:43:26

You have no proofs, there are no evidences. This is a scandalous lie. And obviously, the prophets Allah Sydenham is saying Don't make up those type of things. Because this is very serious, it's going to lead to people's lives being ruined, it's going to lead to people's marriages falling apart, it's going to lead to people being perhaps the progeny of a person coming into question as well. Right? If it's a woman, and you make an accusation like that about a woman, firstly, there's a law in Islam, there's a penal law of God, which is a very serious law.

00:43:28--> 00:44:02

But the second thing is, you've now ruined the status of this person in the eyes of people. There will always be this question mark that will linger around this person because of the lie that you brought. The owner who built in a de como angelicum. While at that, so FEMA roof and Don't disobey in anything that happens to be modeled. Now, when it comes to roof you're going to hear 1001 explanations, but when it comes in the Quran and Sunnah, it's referring to the following.

00:44:04--> 00:44:07

It's referring to whatever

00:44:08--> 00:44:10

Allah considers good.

00:44:11--> 00:44:42

Okay, this is not the same roof that you find in the books of Al Franken Michelotti, sharpen the things that are known by communal practices, they can be considered conditions as well. That's a different type of metals. That's a societal norm. When the Quran says maruf it's talking about things which are considered good within the sight of the Sharia. Okay, so whenever Allah's Prophet is commanding you to good, then do not disobey.

00:44:43--> 00:44:59

Don't disobey. Whenever he's commanding you to leave off something that happens to be evil, then again, Don't disobey, follow his prohibition, leave that action off. Now, let me ask you something. When the Prophet will say, will you

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

He ever command something that is evil or forbid something that is good

00:45:05--> 00:45:20

answer. Obviously not. He will never command something that's evil or forbid something that is good. But even then the prophet is telling the Sahaba do not do not disobey in goodness.

00:45:21--> 00:45:58

Even when he's in question he's trying to say even if I end up doing the opposite, by commanding you something that is evil, or forbidding you for something that is good don't obey me. Because the general rule and principle is Lata atta, Lima, local female Seattle hudec You never obey, a created in the disobedience of the Creator. There's a hadith of the prophets of Salaam. So even if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, even though he will never do this, but let's say if it were to occur, and it's not going to happen and it never happened. The Prophet commanded something evil Don't follow me. forbade something good.

00:46:00--> 00:46:33

Don't follow me as well. That's what the prophets SLM is saying. Thurman was Sam in comfort a God who Allah Allah. Now whoever is able to fulfill then that person his reward is with Allah subhana wa wa woman of slob. I'm in Valley cache and for Uber for dunya for Hua Farah Tula and whoever actually ends up doing one of these auctions that I've told them not to do, and he is punished within this world that will be an explanation for him. Now, as I said earlier, everything has an explanation except for [???].

00:46:36--> 00:47:16

In the law, how old are you Sheila Kirby he well through Madonna, Danny Carey, Masha, Allah subhanaw taala doesn't forgive if someone associates partner with partners with him. And other than that, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada forgives everything right? So all of these things mentioned in the Hadith, every one of them has an explanation. If a person is to be punished, and a person is to be penalized within this world, there is a penalty in the Shediac for said Allah for stealing wealth. There is a penalty within the Sharia for Zina, there is a penalty for murder. There's a penalty for cause as well for falsely accusing people, especially when it comes to their privacy. And there's a penalty

00:47:16--> 00:47:37

for all of these things so they can be expiated through that penalty if you are punished within this life, or if you seek forgiveness, but when it comes to schicke there are no penalties. There's nothing that can expiate your sin except that you go ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah for forgiveness, I ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to forgive us for all of our sins, Allah who I mean.

00:47:38--> 00:48:20

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he continued, and he said woman or saw them in daddy cache and whoever does any of this. And then Allah subhanaw taala, veils his sins, conceals his sins. Then on the Day of Judgment, it's going to be up to Allah for Allah in Allah, this person is matter is left up to Allah. If Allah wishes he can pardon this person. And if Allah subhanaw taala wishes he may punish this person person as well or bad that took no Slamet he said familia, now Allah Dalek, we pledged allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for all of these things. These were the conditions based on which they pledged allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:48:20--> 00:48:57

Now, many of these things by the way, they go back to the objectives of the Sharia as well. The objectives of the Sharia are five and a number of them they go back to the objectives of the Sharia household. Well, one of the objectives of the Sharia is present preservation of the deen. So Allah Subhan Allah and His Prophet and in the Quran, Allah azza wa jal as well is saying, Do not associate partners with Allah preservation of deed. Why not? This is another one of the objectives of the Sharia is preservation of wealth. And Allah its profits is a limit also in the Quran, Allah azza wa jal is saying what others who don't steal.

00:48:58--> 00:49:32

So preservation of wealth, and another one of the objectives of the Sharia is preservation of the lineage. Now Zina fornication what does it do? It mixes up lineage ology, right? People don't know whose father is who and whose mother you always know, but you don't know the Father. So what that does know. So what does this do this ends up distorting and mixing and matching the lineage of people and one of the objectives of the Sharia is to preserve the lineage as well. Another objective of the Sharia is preservation of life. Right?

00:49:33--> 00:49:59

Well, let's talk to the old adage, don't kill your children, because that's going against that objective. Another objective of the Sharia is to preserve people's honor as well have little earned the preservation of honor. And again, when you accuse people falsely and put them through scandals, you walk away nicely, but you've messed up somebody else's honor. So preservation of the honor of a person is among the objectives of this video. If you look at the clock

00:50:00--> 00:50:39

On the rulings of the Sharia, you will always find that these rulings they go back to these five or six. I say that because some of them are another one, they go back to these five or six objectives of the Sharia. So ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to understand these objectives and live by them within this life and to be resurrected upon this pledge, and other pledges that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had with the Sahaba and Allah subhanaw taala had with the entirety of the creation in the Alamo or SallAllahu ala Sayidina Muhammad in or early he was gonna be here Jemaine
