My dear brothers and my dear sisters, there is a sickness and an illness within society that is very, very rampant that we see and that we ourselves at times also indulge in. And that sickness is the sickness of mockery. And that sickness is the sickness of looking at other people and judging them and considering ourselves greater than them. And this sickness has a root cause from which it stems. And Allah horrible is that he will jog through the story of Musa alayhis salaam had told us of the root cause for the sickness. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us when Musa alayhis salam had spoken to the Israelites in in a verse because of which Allah subhanho wa Taala had entitled A

00:01:33--> 00:01:46

complete chapter within the Quran, the largest chapter within the Quran, and that is the chapter of Al Baqarah. When Allah subhana wa Taala tells us that moves asset to his people, Allah.

00:01:47--> 00:01:57

Allah is commanding you to slaughter a cow. And when he told them of this, they replied back to him, and they said, All who attended.

00:01:58--> 00:02:07

They said, Oh Moosa, are you making a mockery out of us? Are you taking goats up as a mockery? Are you making fun of us?

00:02:08--> 00:02:09

Moosa,

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

the Prophet Musa,

00:02:12--> 00:03:03

a prophet who was among the women of Rousseau was among the mightiest of messengers, a prophet, who was among the greatest of messengers, a prophet who is the who's mentioned the most in the odd, there is no other Prophet, about whom Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us more in the Quran than Moosa. This Prophet, of course, he's going to know what such a vile practice and such a vise within society and such an evil which happens to be very rampant in every society that goes corrupt, he would know what the root cause for this is. So he says, rubella he an akuna minal johannine, I seek refuge from Allah subhana wa Taala that I become from the people who are ignorant, I seek refuge from ignorance.

00:03:03--> 00:03:29

So he ended up grading ignorance to be the key factor because of which people end up making fun of one another because of which people end up mocking one another. My dear brothers, and my dear sisters, the more cultured we become, the more educated we become, the more developed we become, the more we should be away from this practice of mockery, the more we should recognize that Allah,

00:03:30--> 00:04:18

Allah has given everyone within limitations, if we see the limitations within others for which we marked them, there are reasons for people to be able to mock us if they use their tongue in that way as well. My dear brothers, and my dear sisters, the person who mocks the person who mocks, he has ignorance in two different ways, and many ways, but two primary ways. The first way is that he believes himself to be greater than the person he's mocking. And for that reason, he or she ends up mocking that individual. If he sees that that person's physical features are not like his he may or she may mark that person's physical features because he believes himself to be greater, and he

00:04:18--> 00:04:59

believes themselves to be inherently superior. He believes that he is a better person. And such a person doesn't recognize truly the true knowledge of the fact that it is only through a law's yardstick and through his index and through the index that Allah has placed on the Day of Judgment. It is through that that people will be judged. You may appear to be greater within this world, but in the hereafter that greatness doesn't help because it is a loss index that will work on that day of judgment, it will be a law's index and that is the index of taqwa. And that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran in economics,

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

In the law of attraction, it is the measure that a law has placed for greatness. The measure that Allah subhana wa Taala has placed for honor is the law.

00:05:11--> 00:05:52

And the greatest among you to Allah Subhana Allah and the most honorable amongst you to Allah subhanho wa Taala are the one who happens are the ones who happen to be the most righteous. So this is the first form of ignorance that this may have this May this person may have another form. Another way this person may be ignorant, is he believes that he should be greater, not that he is greater, but he believes he should be greater. What does that mean? He sees a person who's better than him in many different ways. He sees a person who's got a better life going for himself, he sees a person who's perhaps more beautiful than him, or perhaps more attractive than him, he sees a

00:05:52--> 00:06:36

person who's more physically fit maybe more rich, and so forth. So he wants to bring that person down in any which way. So he appears to be greater within the world, although he has internally already accepted that in this worldly life, person x appears to be greater than me. And this itself is another mistake. Why is that? Well, first and foremost, Allah Subhana, Allah dis divides greatness within people in different ways. Maybe he is above you and beyond you in some manners, but you may be above and beyond him in other manners. That's the first thing. The second thing is, at the end of the day, there are going to be people who have different levels within this world, this

00:06:36--> 00:07:26

is a reality. This is a reality. But who is the one who is making that choice for the people, along with the people's own actions, Allah through His Divine Decree and wisdom decides for people who will have more wealth, and who will have more stealth, Allah decides for people who will have more health and who will be have more faith. So this is a decision that Allah subhana wa Taala makes. So by mocking someone to bring them down, you and I and whoever engages in this, we are basically objecting on the decree of Allah, Allah, and that is another form of ignorance. And this is why the prophet of God Musa alayhis salam, when his people told him that you are mocking us, Are you mocking

00:07:26--> 00:07:39

us immediately? He didn't speak about mockery. He said, I seek refuge in a lot of binaries that he was allowed, that I be from those people who happen to be ignorant. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant this

00:07:40--> 00:07:41

culture along. I mean,

00:07:42--> 00:07:56

I asked a lot of queries at one journal, to grant us the ability to culture ourselves in our souls Allahumma me. I asked Allah Subhana Allah to educate our mind and nourish our souls Allahumma

00:08:51--> 00:08:52

Minister in

00:08:53--> 00:09:38

Ramadan, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says that, oh, who you believe do not allow men amongst you to mock other men. Perhaps the men who are being mocked happened to be greater than the ones who are mocking. And Allah Subhana Allah says do not allow the woman or mist you to mock other women, perhaps the ones who are being mocked may be better than the ones who are mocking Allah subhanho wa Taala has his own measures for greatness. It is not you who decides other people to be great. Allah subhanho wa Taala has a completely different index by which he judges and he has left that judgment to himself and for the Day of Judgment, it is not your duty to judge because by bonking others, you

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

are accepting your own weaknesses. And that is why many psychologists say that mocking within a human being is a sign of a psychological disorder. And that is because he is taking his own weakness and he's trying to impress and he's trying to admit them onto other people. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to allow us to correct our weaknesses instead.

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

stead of reflecting them onto other people Allahumma amin
