My dear brothers and sisters in Islam
and today's hookah
We have with us in shallow tala,
a guarantee to enter into gender and jalota Allah
and this guarantee it's not from me.
It's from our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
who told us in the Hadith, la Salatu was Salam
minoli sit them in and fusi come out Mila Komal Jenna, promise me six things from yourself and I will promise for you the agenda.
Now, all we have to do
to get this guarantee is to fulfill these six things in shallow tonic.
And as we mentioned,
and discuss these six things.
I want each one of us
to reflect on his own situation
to see where are we when it comes to these six things? Are we implementing them? Are we close to them? Are we far away from them?
He said that he led to a Salaam and this Heidi, which was narrated by Mr.
Newman will help me a bit of a burn from the idea of evaluating assignment.
monody symptom and unforeseen come up millicom agenda to guarantee me six from yourself and I will guarantee for you the agenda, he said was to either had the first thing be truthful when you speak
what oh, for either What? And to fulfill your promises if you make promises. What to do that to mean to them. And to give the trust if you're insured with something to fulfill that trust.
What photo photo calm and protect your private parts will go up satakam and lower your gaze will Khufu ad accom and can show your hands from harming anyone else. Six things if we implement them in our lives, we have a guarantee from our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to enter into the agenda.
Most loco either had to be truthful when you speak and because of the importance of a suit, and being truthful in Islam. It's mentioned about 92 times in the Quran.
Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us yeah, you had an Athena, amen. Oh, it's up to law. Well, cool. And Omar saw the theme. Oh, you have believed fear a lot and be with the truthful.
Be with those who are truthful.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and the Heidi,
which was narrated in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim from the hadith of Abdullah Massoud wrote the last one.
He showed us It stood out to us
of being truthful
and the outcome of life.
He said it stood out to us
Yeah, the LLB that truthfulness. It guides to an
LLB it's all forms of good.
So when you're truthful, it's gonna guide you to all forms of good, but it doesn't stop there.
Yeah, lol Jenna.
And this bear this goodness, a guide to the agenda?
Well, is Roger Lu?
Yes, Dooku had en de la he said de la. And the person will continue to be truthful until he's written down in front of a law as a truthful person.
He's written down as the truth of a person with the low supanova Tada.
This is what truthfulness does, and this is what it guides us to.
And what about lying?
What happens when the Muslim lives?
The prophets that Allahu Allah he was sent him in the same Heidi.
He said, Will he come? We'll get him.
Beware of life.
Stay away from lying.
Why? Because what is the outcome? What's going to happen if we lie?
He said I used to lie to a celeb for in Al Qaeda.
Yeah, the Elan fool that the Kevin. It will guide you to a fool which is all forms of evil
when and for jewel? Yeah, the Elan
and the jewel this evilness a guards to the hellfire.
What is Elora julu. Yet the blue hat, the Mohicans
that the person will continue to lie, until he's written down with the law that he's a liar.
The person who's lying, he'll be known to Allah subhana wa tada as so and so the cadet the liar, but the one who's truthful, he's known as that the solid upon the truthful one.
This is the outcome of telling the truth, and the outcome of lying.
And we might ask ourselves,
how can we train ourselves in order to be truthful?
Well, I this hadith we mentioned is enough. If you sit and you reflect on the outcomes,
of lying, and the outcomes of being truthful, the idea that we just mentioned inside a Muslim, it's enough. And you know, as well that if you fulfill being truthful with the other six things, other five things that you enter into the agenda.
And beware of lying,
and the dangers of lying.
In the Hadith in Sahih Bukhari when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
he saw those who were being tortured.
He saw his dream those who were being tortured, and he said, Who are they? Who are they, at the end of the dream, when the angels explained to him who these people were one of them? How was he being tortured? They said that his cheek was being ripped back all the way to his ears.
And then it would heal and it would be ripped back again. So who are these people? He said, they said that they are the ones that tell the lie.
And then it's believed and it's spread around the earth. And this is particularly important in the days that we live in the days of social media, when one person put something online, and then it spreads like wildfire.
So before we put any false information, or before, we are sure about this information, even when it comes to Islamic information, how many times we go back to people we tell them Yes. What is this post you posted? What is this twit, what is this on your Facebook? He says a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Are you sure it's authentic? Before you spread it? before you send it out to 1000s of people know what's up?
I got it and what it is now we want to be the first one who sends it out. We don't even authenticate, we just send it quickly. Shoot it out. And then you come back. You say the hype lead is not just life. It's more boy it's fabricated to lie about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how many cases have we seen? And what does Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say about these individuals who spread lies about him. He said that he led to a Salomon kandivali amateur ammidon villager Baba Mercado whom and enough that whoever purposely lies about me, then let him prepare his seat and the hell file. So before you put out things on social media,
make sure that it's authentic.
Make sure that we're sort of low so the low while he was Selim said it, make sure it's in accordance to Islam don't just spread information.
the second thing that if we do, we have a promise in chautala to enter into the agenda.
He said I laid it out to a solemn will Oh, fully that whacked him to keep your promises to fulfill your promises. A lot of commanders in operand 104 will add in the kanima schooler and to fulfill your commitments, because you're going to be questioned about your commitments. Every commitment that you make, every promise that you make, you're going to be questioned about it when you stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
The Muslim needs to train himself to never make a promise. never commit to anything unless you can do it. No matter how small it might be. Even in our households. When you tell your family you're going to do something, you do it.
You tell your wife, you're going to take it to the market it becomes compulsory upon you. If you're not sure you can do it. Say I'll tell you later.
See, I can't commit right now.
Let me just look at my schedule. I'll tell you if I can do it after Juma on Friday or not, even with your children,
we train ourselves to only commit to what we can do.
A beautiful story. One of our scholars, he said he was
going to a lecture and his son came up to him. He said, Baba, Baba, I want you to buy me a toy.
And as we know, as parents, sometimes we say play you play playing each other we say we're gonna get it right. We just want to go we want to get out of the house.
So but this kid philosophy registered, what there's a promise now from Baba that when he comes back from his lecture, he's gonna bring me a toy.
So the chef, he went, gave a lecture in Mashallah. So my lectures, he has a lot of energy, people asking questions afterwards, he just wants to now get home and go to sleep. He forgot all about the promise he made to his son. As soon as he comes in the house, his son didn't forget the promise. He runs to the door.
He said, Baba, where's my toy?
He said, I forgot. He said, If I forgot, he said, he said tomorrow, tomorrow, Booker, I'll do it for you inshallah he wants to go to sleep was the rest.
The little boy said, Stop for a while.
He said, you get on the member. And you advise people to be honest and to be good. And you lie to me Subhanallah, the chef, he should have made a
jacket or whatever. So we're back out the house to make sure I bought the toy and came back home. So I can keep my promise. Something might seem small, but it has a huge impact on his life on your children and not even on you. Because then these little things it helps you when it comes to the big commitments as well because you always fulfilling your commitments and always fulfilling your promises.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned the third thing
was to do either to mentor them
and to fulfill the trust if you're entrusted with something. If you have an Amana,
you're in charge of something you're entrusted with something that you fulfill it.
And when you look at the facts,
and sort of determine when a loss of power what Allah describes those who are successful, but after noon,
the worship believers have been successful. And Allah mentions that they will be the dwellers of the third dose, Allah Allah and agenda May Allah subhana wa tada make us from them. Allah described them for us will let you know whom they are mad at him, to him that they are from the ones who fulfill their promises in their commitments.
These are the believers who are going to be successful. And in this, Heidi, these two things are mentioned as ways to get to gender.
And if you've been reflecting and thinking about these first three things,
perhaps something came into your mind. And that is the famous hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
what he mentioned in the Hadees, which was narrated unsavable, hiding Sahih Muslim from the hadith of Abu huria robiola one
tool, Mona fealty, the length, that the signs that the hypocrite oh three,
and pay attention to the three
either had kidded that if he speaks, he lives
with the afterlife. And if he promises, he breaks his promise, we that to mean a con. And if he's entrusted with something that he betrays that trust, a the opposite of these three mentioned in the head.
So these three, they're not just a way to agenda, but if we do not
implement them in our lives, it's the sign of hypocrisy of the monarchy. The true believer when he speaks he's truthful. And when
he's entrusted with something promises something he does it and when he's entrusted with something, he fulfills that, that trust as well.
And then the prophet SAW the law while he was selling mentioned for us, the fourth which was
what follow Fujioka and protect your private parts.
What led you to homely Fuji him Have You don't? And the ones who protect their private parts, as Allah subhanho wa Taala said no Quran. These are the successful believers. And how do we protect our private parts?
Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran
told us what etc buzina
Do not come near Xena the fornication
and here also Paolo attalla operator.
He can stop. It's a complete sentence. Don't do it for us. It's enough.
We have to fulfill it. But then a law set
in no who can have a shutter was set as a dealer. He explained to us Why? He said because this Dena fornicating it is something immoral and an evil wait.
And so panela
when we look at the beauty of Islam,
and how Islam is the last religion sent to mankind upon this earth, that every time as the time goes on and on we see sign after sign after sign, Allah subhana wa tada shows the truthfulness of this religion. When you look in this verse, about staying away from Xena
and you see the reality of dysphasia of this immoral act, and this evil way, when we see it, and how the diseases have spread, and how the families have been separated, and all of the evil and the corruption that is caused upon the earth, we see supanova
look at the beauty of Islam. Look at the message that was sent to us 1400 years ago, and how powerful it is.
When we see the impact of this immoral act, on the societies and on the people, and the days that we live in Panama, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us
what we'll do absorb them and lower your gaze.
Allah subhana wa tada
a no commands us will only move mania Yo man I'm sorry.
Why? Raja vaniqa has Kalam in Allah hubiera beam is known tell the believing men to lower their gates, don't look at how to when you see the hot arm turn away. And to protect their private parts that is more purified for them. A law is well acquainted with that which they do
in this ayah
because we always people complain, it's difficult not to be able to look at the harem, it's difficult to lower gaze, we become weak. In fact,
many of us, we don't look at it being like a big deal.
I'm just looking, not not touching, I'm not doing harm. I'm just looking. So a beautiful lady on the road. I look. I see it on TV, I see it on one of the ads. As you don't know, when I'm watching on my computer, I'm just looking, I'm not touching. It's not a big deal. And we don't realize
the dangers of not knowing our gates. And the reason that we're falling into sin. The reason our email is so weak, the reason that we're not able to read the Quran, the reason that we're lazy giving up a slotted budget, many times this goes back the fact that we're looking at it.
And as we're looking at that time is going into our hearts. And that's why I'm so proud of what Allah said that he can scalla him that it's more purified for them.
And the only way we can refrain from not falling into hat on protecting our private parts, it starts with lowering the gates. That's why the first thing after
lowering their gaze while your photo photo
and then protect their private parts you have to lower your gaze first. And then
after that, Allah subhana wa tada synthetic as can the hope of purifying them, so there's more purifying for them.
And if we're not lowering the gays, we're corrupting the soul. This is what we need to realize.
And then we need to realize the law told us in this verse in number hubiera, we may have known that a law is well acquainted with that which they do that even if someone else can't see us, that a law can see us. A law knows what we're doing. A law knows what we're looking at. But their brothers and sisters in Islam.
A young man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he said something to him
that the people thought was very disrespectful.
And you can imagine even if somebody would come now and say something like that, how disrespectful we might find it.
He said, Isn't the designer give me permission to fornicating. So this young man, perhaps he looked in Islam, and he liked Islam. He liked the teachings. But there's one thing when it came to Xena, perhaps she was a bit of a ladies man or something.
But this was an issue. He said, just give me permission. That's what he wanted. Give me permission to fornication.
Now hearing this in front of the prophets, I said live. And if many of us heard something like this, what would be the first thing that we would do? If somebody came and asked the Shere Khan the lesson? Can I get permission to smack smack in it? Have some of you in the masjid asking a question like that? But what did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam say to him,
I want you all to reflect with me.
On this story,
he talked to his fifth row, the natural inclination that all of us have inside. He came to him. And as he asked him several questions,
he said, I told ba whom
would you like someone to do with your mother?
What was his answer right away? Of course not. No way. It's my mom, you know? And then he asked him, would you want someone to do it with your daughter? All of us know how much we love our daughters? Of course not.
What about your sister? Of course not. What about your family, your Holly your aunts? Of course not.
And he said, just as you wouldn't want it done with these people. The people don't want it done with their mothers, or with their daughters, or their sisters or their aunts.
And then hamdulillah he understood. So the same thing my brother when it comes to lower your gaze, staying away from Xena. Remember this principle? When you're looking at another sister walk, you're looking at other woman walk down the street? Would you want other people looking at your mother like that? Would you want them looking at your daughter like that? Of course not. So just as you wouldn't want people doing it to you don't do it to them.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned the sixth thing, which is well, Khufu a do come to control your hands, meaning not to harm another individual with these hands.
And this is from the principles the teachings of Islam. And the Hadith which was narrated in Sahara Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us and Muslim and who is the Muslim he said the Muslim he's going to describe for us in his heavy who the Muslim is
Al Muslim, man Salim al Muslim una melissani woman Yeti, that the Muslim is the one who the Muslims are safe from his tongue in from his hands.
He doesn't curse at them. He doesn't have ill speech to say bad things to them. He doesn't harm them with his hands. And in fact, the true believer the best believer is the one who can control his anger as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught us and another Heidi also narrated and said Bukhari and Sahih Muslim where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said LeSage laces, shady do we store it in the machete dilithium lacuna.
That the one who is strong. It's not the one who can wrestle someone down, he can beat someone down. He can take him out with an armbar he can choke him out from the back. That's not the strong one. He said the store one is the one who can control himself at the time of anger, the one who couldn't knock you out the one who could choke you out. But what does he do at the time of anger, he controls himself. This is the true believer, the one who controls himself at the time of anger by the brothers and sisters in his lab.
As we go home today,
we need to reflect on this howdy in our lives as individuals in our families, to see if these six principles are being implemented in our lives in our family's lives or not. And then thanks, Pamela here, a guarantee. From Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we will enter into the agenda. Obviously, that's after we fulfilled the most important right which is a to heat to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala is one and that the joint and he partners with him, and that in all of the actions we do, we have the koalas sincerity for a lot. And we have mudarabah that we follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If we have this, and we have limit these six things, it's a
waste agenda for us.
So we need to go home and ask ourselves, are we from the truthful ones? Are we from the liars? And remember the idea of where the truthfulness leads, and where line leads? We need to go home and ask it ask ourselves, do we fulfill our promises? Or are we from sherek at IBM?
Because most Muslims, or platinum members of IBM,
people don't know people think I have an apple. I have some I have a Dell I don't know what is IBM 99% of Muslims are platinum, the Platinum members of IBM
inshallah bokhara Manish
when it comes to do some inshallah bucur I'll do it tomorrow. And then we don't do it. Mallesh IBM, that's what most Muslims fall into. They don't fulfill the promises. They will tell you. Yeah, I'll do it. I'll do it tomorrow.
And then when he comes and he didn't do it tomorrow, Manish the Muslim if he fulfills something he's going to do it because he promised he will do it at that time.
If somebody is interested in you with something, you
fulfill that trust
That's what it means to be a believer. And that's what our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was known as a solid ethylamine the trustworthy one, the trustworthy one, the truth what led to that was set up and then to protect your private parts and to lower your gaze and to not harm anybody with your hands. inshallah Tada. If you strive to implement these six principles in your life, you have a guarantee from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you will enter into the agenda.
