Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu me the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon you all.

00:00:20--> 00:01:03

Bring the people together, do what you can to bring people together to bring the hearts together. Yes, I know at the beginning, it may not be the hearts. But when people see that you care for them just because they're people that you love them because they're human beings and they have a right to love. They have a right to brotherhood sisterhood, they have a right to know who their Creator is, and how to manifest all of these aspects of brotherhood and sisterhood. This is the characteristics of a Motoki. This is a characteristics of a mindful person, when someone has enmity towards another person, and you're the one to call both of them up. And you mentioned the good points about each

00:01:03--> 00:01:51

other. What was a good statement that one said about the latter, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said that we can even lie to the degree of bringing people together, particularly brothers in the faith of Islam. Why? Because we know in Islam, that one of the major objectives is heavily Deen preservation of the religion. And if there is separation amongst the brothers and sisters, in a community in a mosque, in a household that can only bring weakness to the oma to the community as a whole on a worldwide level, and even on a domestic level. Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in the Quran was so high when he was talking about the spouses. That one thing that is good is sort of is

00:01:51--> 00:01:56

bringing the people together. What I lost it kind of with that I also mentioned in the Quran,

00:01:57--> 00:01:58

where

00:01:59--> 00:02:49

Allah would Russell, well, that's a NASA Oh fighter, shallow water very hokum when Allah subhanho wa Taala talked about not separating, he said, obey Allah and His messenger and do not separate but the verb we use here literally is to pull out, do not separate from one another to where you are crawling. And that quarreling leads to separation of the hearts, it leads to hatred, it leads to enmity. This is why tribalism has its boundaries. This is why love of a human being has its boundaries and the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala is endless. When bringing people together for the sake of Allah for the sake of your love of Allah subhanho wa Taala that is the Muslim. That is the

00:02:49--> 00:03:33

one that Allah subhana wa tada loves. And that is the action of the McDuffie of the mindful person. take it upon yourself, to bring people together, when people see that your only hopes was to bring them together. They'll respect you in the end of the day, maybe not at that moment, they may not show it, then they may take it for weakness. But when they see that you're someone that just wants to bring the people together to make sure that we family and at the family stay strong. Because people that do not have your best interests at hand. They love to see separation, because separation brings weakness, and even no family even gives it as an example of the habit or you know, the actual

00:03:33--> 00:03:41

rope that's tied around a sward or, or an arrow. He says as soon as it becomes loose, it gets loose, that is when it becomes weak.

00:03:42--> 00:04:09

So let's look at our families. Look at our close friends, look at our communities, those that we may not have a good relationship with, or maybe distant from, bring them together to the best of your abilities. If there is any enmity or you see that image he may come be a Muslim. Be a person that brings people together to ultimately bring the hearts together. cinematic rapper to light or better Catherine Thank you
