Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah COVID Academy the Peace and blessings of Allah subhana wa Allah be upon you all. As we know one of the names of a lot is a summit, that he is the one that is a comprehensive name, which is generally means perfection and has no deficiencies. So everything else other than Him is deficient with that reality. We see that example even with Adam and Eve, Adam took from the forbidden fruit and for their for which was a sin and he was cast it down onto the earth. Everything on this earth has a deficient nature. Within that deficient nature we as human beings join together in a society and there may be things that we may contribute to that is not exactly
what Allah loves. Individually, we have our own sense, but collectively it can come to something much greater than that, on a community level. Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses a number of etiquettes in the 18th juice, particularly the 24th chapter, the chapter of Nord the chapter of light, Allah subhanaw taala even starts it off where he says if there are other lamps on Jean Bismillahirrahmanirrahim Sora tune, Enza Nanda will further offer follow up never ends and now he has a atem Beginner's luck to the Quran. Allah Allah says a chapter ends well now that we have sit down with frogner and inside of it are obligatory aspects are made obligatory to be given to you.
What ends in Nafisa is in a unit and we have sit down within it. This chapter. bayonet is clear evidences perhaps you will be of those who will remember, then a lot immediately goes into some etiquettes that are important for all of us to know. And it's very important that this is understood within every society, because he starts off by by addressing a human reality, that there will be man, a man and a woman that will associate with one another in a manner that is not permissible in Islam, and as a matter of fact, an immoral practice and that is adultery. We goes on to say, a zania to was zanny fudge they do whom he uttered Zelda. Well, last month, Allah goes in to say, the zania
and the zanni, the person that commits Zina at male and female, that they should be whipped 100 times. And he goes on in this verse and numerous verses after that, to talk about the etiquettes of the of the man with the woman, the the the social etiquettes when it comes to how to greet one another, when you're in your home by yourself, how do you when you enter in upon your home? How do you give salons that What do you say, when you want to intern upon someone? Do you knock on the door or not? And what is that considered if you don't knock on the door and you just enter when looking inside of a hole in the wall of somebody's private home or in their home? Certain etiquettes that
are taken here, and particularly the etiquettes of spreading tales if you hear a rumor about someone and what you heard is something that if it was to be spread, it would cause mischief in a society. That is what we as Muslims should be aware of. Because in society today, there are talk shows, and television shows that we see based around gossip based around talking about other people's private lives that in which in reality doesn't benefit us benefit us at all. But hearing about it at the moment is something juicy. We love to hear about it because that person is on television, but a lawsuit kinda with data puts us in proper perspective. And he reminds you of the moral gives you the
moral compass of how one should act.
Within this philosopher analysis in verse number 19. He says in the Medina you hit buena and Tashi alfalfa to fill Athena Avenue legume Isaiah boon la moon for dunya. When Africa Allahu
Allah says, verily those that love for the fact he ship, the abominable, evil, bad, disgusting news to spread about the people who believe for them is a painful punishment in this life. And in the next. Allah knows and you don't know. But notice he said here in the living it you have buena and Toshi adventitia to the ones that love for the fact he said, the bad, immoral news to spread. So when you're on social media, and you hear some rumor about someone that may have had intercourse with another person that they're not married to, or may have done an immoral act, caught drinking, and you spread it to millions of people around the world to about the click of a button, they can
see that face and that immoral act, and you're doing it to spread bad news about the person which the other deficient human being will see that and then maybe unjust by thinking
Something about that person. What do you think is gonna happen when they meet that person? That first picture in their mind that mean, that email that that heading on a on a paper or a title or an article or a blog is going to come to their minds to where they have just done injustice to that person. Maybe the person has made Toba. They have just an injustice to that person. Think about it. Why did you spread that news in the first place? Was it just a juicy topic because you want it to get likes? You want it to get a lot of numbers, a loss of Pinewood Dallas's that there was a painful punishment for that person. Does that even matter to you?
Last month, Allah is associating that painful punishment to the ones that care
to the ones that care it will affect you. You'll think about it. Because our desires love and lean towards getting into business that that's not ours. And that's why laws being severe on the punishment for the one that loves this news to be spread, especially in those who believe this verse was particularly talking about when the news was spread about Aisha the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which is called gesser, to this story of when the prophets wife sallallahu wasallam, when there was she would there was slander against her that she did an immoral act. And Allah subhanaw taala acquitted her and showed that she was totally innocent of the claims
of some of the hypocrites during that time that wanted to spread news about her. And then then another illustrious companion stuff won't even wild fun. But this was untrue. So in conclusion, we should look at ourselves when we turn on the television, when we go on Netflix, or any binge on any show that talks about people having sex with this person and this person, and how that is news. And we continue to listen. But in reality, there is a severe punishment, even for spreading the news, which this chapter talks about, as is a severe punishment for the one that engages in intercourse with someone they're not married to me, Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from any of these social
ills that we can the strength of our social and moral code that is found within this beautiful Quran, especially within this chapter of a newer a cinematic toy or better catch. Thank you
