whenever he or she wants to do anything from the movements in this Dean

00:01:09--> 00:01:20

today we're going to deal with a number of other issues that come from one of the authentic Hadith of the Prophet SAW the law while he was setting them but before so as we told you want you guys to memorize these a hadith?

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

Find the taqueria.

00:01:48--> 00:01:48

I sent

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

an abuse of the law when he was sent him on the authority of Abdullah even Irma

00:01:57--> 00:02:27

abdulai me no matter said that nebby says a lot while he was setting them around the Alon, Houma I have been sent close to the hour, and I've been sent with the sword

00:02:40--> 00:02:45

so that Allah will be worshipped alone, having no partners therein.

00:02:46--> 00:02:52

And my sustenance has been made for me under the shade of my spear.

00:02:53--> 00:03:08

And anyone who is in opposition to what I brought, what I command my religion, then they're going to be debased and may lowly and insignificant. And anyone who resembles a people that he's from those people

00:03:09--> 00:03:16

is what he is talking about, for us describing the characteristics of the Muslim.

00:03:17--> 00:03:34

A number of characteristics come to us from this Hadith of the Navy some of the law when he was sending but first the robbery of the Hadith is Abdul Rahman Abdullah ibn Omar Ibn Al Shabaab, the ameerul momineen are the online. I'm delighted the Norma

00:03:35--> 00:04:24

was from the younger companions. But in terms of his knowledge, he was from the major companions and that's because he was one of the four or that dela one of the four companions with the name Abdullah. Even Omar Abdullah even ambass Abdullah even amor even allows Abdullah Abdullah Zubair they are the four Abdallah the four companions with the name Abdullah that they have the majority of the ahaadeeth don't get that confused and add on to them I'm delighted in my screwed although he was a scholar, especially with the Quran. He didn't nary as many a hadith is these four Abdullah bin Omar Lila be pleased with him is the brother of our mother hazza hafsa May Allah be pleased with her

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

father brother wrote one line and Jemaine obvious is the wife of the Prophet son. The law while he was sentenced to live in Oman, is the how of the meaning. He's the maternal uncle of all Muslims. So it gives him a special position and that his sister was married to the Prophet sallallahu it was sending them just like wow, we are we are even Abby Sophia and his sister. Ramallah was the wife of the Prophet sallallahu it was sending him Habiba. So with that being the case by default, Malawi is the highest

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

The meaning or the one why any

00:05:04--> 00:05:22

of the live being there online, as I mentioned was from those companions who didn't participate in the first wars of Islam the Battle of better the Battle of earth. And that's because he was young and the Prophet broader religions online he was sending them that does not throw people into the lion's den.

00:05:23--> 00:05:47

Jihad as you're gonna see in this Hadith, the Golem The objective of jihad is not just spilling blood anarchy. It's not the goal, the objective of the Jihad of Boko Haram and Shabaab and chi edan. These crazy people, ISIS, people have lost their minds, blowing up innocent people and making disruption in the lives of Muslims and non Muslims killing more Muslims than anything.

00:05:48--> 00:05:59

So I'm delighted in your life because of his young age, Rwanda. While he he didn't participate in those wars, he participated. later on. As I mentioned, he was one of the younger companions of the Prophet. Some of it was said

00:06:00--> 00:06:03

he began the Hadees by saying

00:06:04--> 00:06:48

he has been sent close to the hour and he's been sent with the sword so that a lot will be worshipped by himself. So one of the signs of Yokoyama and there are many major signs and small signs, one of the main one of the smallest signs is the birth of Rasulullah. His son in law when he was seven, the fact that Allah sent him told the world Hey, yo cam is close, because the heart of the NBN the Russell has been sent sallallahu wasallam as he mentioned another Hadith birth to being a soccer I think I've been sent close to the hour like this, and he put his fingers like that showing after he comes as a real soon a beat everyone yamaki amis soon

00:06:49--> 00:07:34

and he was sent with the sword. Some Muslims who are always apologetic and the acquiesce about Islam, and they don't have that characteristic inside of them about being proud and having isn't shut up being a Muslim. We apologize for this, Heidi. Some people have made this Heidi week. And it is an authentic Heidi from the Prophet sallallaahu Sen. And they make it weak because it is not palatable on the tongues of the non Muslims who are barbarically killing Muslims all over the place. They're killing us all over the place, all over the place. And although they're killing us, we become apologetic and we come and say, you know, this hadith is not right. The Prophet didn't come

00:07:34--> 00:07:44

with the sword. No, he came with the sword, meaning he didn't come with a book like the Christians try to portray. He said, No medium, it's not true.

00:07:45--> 00:08:08

If your enemy slaps you in the cheek, give them the other one. If he steals your shirt, give him your pants and steals your water give him your land. He said and come with that religion. He came with a religion where, according to the old book, he was making an America more often and named Luca just like the prophets in the messengers who were before him from Venice or el Ramana Lai they him was Salatu was Salam winy.

00:08:10--> 00:08:20

So then they became with a religion where he's going to give a doorway to tauheed. And the reason why Jihad has been legislated. The top reason is, for

00:08:22--> 00:09:08

people to worship a lot alone, there will always be a battle between the heart and the bottom always. And there will be those people will always oppose the truth, they will oppose it. And the only language they understand is to be strong with them and strong against them. So Islam came with the legislation of jihad. So I can't apologize about this, Heidi, I can't bite my tongue about this hadith. I can't jump over this hadith and it's in the book. We won't do that because we're in the West. We're going to make it clear though what our religion is and what our religion is it as a Muslim, you have a child, baby boy, baby girl, you slaughter for that child. Somebody says to you,

00:09:08--> 00:09:21

Hey, you know that sheep, that goat has rights? Don't slaughter, don't all of that blood, don't don't slaughter. don't sacrifice that goat for your baby boy for your baby girl, who in his right mind is going to listen to that.

00:09:23--> 00:09:59

There are some Muslims who will listen to that. And they will say yes, I'm going to leave my boy with his hair because when he grows up, he should have the right and the freedom to tell me how and when he wants to cut his hair. So leave his hair until he gets big. And I won't slaughter a goat because it is animal cruelty to slaughter a goat and it's barbaric and backwards. Who in his right mind is going to think like that. We're going to say hey, this is the suit of our Navy someone lie to a seller and he knows more than all of you people. If you don't like it, take it up with Allah take it up with Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam As for me, my job is just to hear and just to hold

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

Bay. So as it relates to this issue here, the Prophet sallallahu it was sending them he was sent so that people would worship Allah and that's why LG Han has been legislated as this headset I've been sent with the sword close to the hour so that Allah will be worshipped by himself. So the companion is acts the question out also law who's the real Mujahid he said men jahad Lita Khun Kenny mattala he'll earlier for who are feasability law the one who fights to make allies words uppermost allies religion upper most he is the Mujahid. As for the one who fights and he's mad that they did something to us so I'm gonna get him back and get revenge. He's not a Mujahid FISA Beatty law. He's

00:10:47--> 00:11:29

Mujahid and his own knifes The one who fights in order to say they did that to my tribe, this guy is fighting the cause of tribalism, the one who goes and he makes efforts and he says something. How dare them do this to us? I'm going to do this and take their money. You're not the one who's making giac so that allies name will be uppermost in his religion will be practice. And anyone who has sincerity to the Kennemer of La Ilaha Illa. He knows that which will prevent him from hijacking the plane and killing innocent people on a plane or taking a bombing in a public place and killing innocent people with the claim. I'm making jihad. No, that's sad. That's sad. That's not the Jihad

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

of this religion. So what did you had? It's been legislated with this issue, but the Prophet himself said the law one who seldom he has been sent as aurasma as Allah mentioned, many is of the Quran and Hadith. Well, Madison Naka Illa Rahmatullah mean, we sent you as a Ratna, he said about himself so long when he was sending them in Amma Anna,

00:11:50--> 00:12:36

Rama to dat. I am a Rama and I've been given to the people as a gift. My dour, my religion, the legislation of Al Islam. Everything in it is a Ratna for the people. And jihad is a Rama just like capital and corporal punishment is rotten. If people knew, if they were to steal this, there's gonna be a price to pay, they won't steal it. If people knew when he marries your daughter, if he knew if he would act and misbehave with your daughter, he knows there's a price to pay her father, her brothers or uncle's gonna deal with him. He's gonna deal with a different situation different way. But when people were not afraid of any authority, then every criminal will come out as we have in

00:12:36--> 00:13:21

the frontiers of the Muslim lands today. And Libya right now. That's what's going on in Syria right now. That's what's going on. Whenever the authority is taken out of positioning, there's no authority on whatever level there's going to be drama. So in our religion, there is jihad, but the Jihad has been legislated to keep people in check. And it has its rules and regulations. It has its etiquettes it has its people it has its place it has its time and it's not fair every I'm a bucket and Z to come and to make the establishment. Where is she had and what is she had that's what the motherless that that's what the marvelous man, but we cannot reject this Heidi, and the meaning is

00:13:21--> 00:13:34

in the Quran. Allah tada mentioned all of those I like his statements with Hannah with Allah Yeah, are you and livina manual? ma la comida que la common Pharaoh fee Sabine in LA he thought

00:13:36--> 00:14:10

oh you believe what is wrong with you when it is said to you go out in the cause of a lot you hold on to the earth. You don't want to do it? Yeah, you are living in Amman, Halla De Luca Malati. Jarrah, Tintin g coming up I've been a lien took me no Nebula he was sorry he went to jail he doing a FISA bt laby and while akemon fusi come, they come highroller come in come to law come to tanaman Oh, you believe Shana offer you a commerce that if it would do if you were to do it, it will give you life.

00:14:11--> 00:14:51

And that is that you believe in Allah and His Messenger, and you make jihad in the cause of Allah with your persons and with your monies that's better for you, if you only knew I act upon if no one can come and change that out of this religion. So from the characteristics of the Muslim man is that he follows the Navy with some of the last one he was selling them and an issue of defending his religion and an issue of defending his property and issue of defending his money defending his honor, defending the principles by which he lives by and where he believes in. And in our cases, a lot of time and what if you're not in our cases

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

some of the Muslims are afraid who work in the hospital, who work in the place where your GP is

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

He works in or she works in some office. So when you go there, you're Muslim, they're Muslim they say to you, hi.

00:15:06--> 00:15:30

Bye. scared to say salaam aleikum wa Alaykum Salah insha Allah hi and bye, we're Muslims. Now I'm not saying that we have to proselytize at the job and be crazy irresponsible. I'm not saying that. But when the customer comes to you, and you are a Muslim, how do you say to the person Hi.

00:15:32--> 00:15:39

And there's a hadith where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam whoever doesn't start you off with the selam then don't give them any cadang

00:15:41--> 00:16:18

from the heart of the Muslim, Muslim man and Muslim is Allah Quito for Salah Mali, His heart is when you meet them, give them synonyms. Another Hadith said if you meet someone he starts without giving salaams then don't give him kelang Well, if you did that, and you practice that Hadith with any faith without any fit, you won't be able to reach a car because the guy is not gonna give you setups. The hospital she's not gonna give you synapse. So we're talking about Jihad and this is one of the issues about the disconnect with some of the dorot to politics and Jihad Don't you know the reality of our

00:16:19--> 00:17:04

our own minds you're gonna see in this ID if you put your finger on the problem with this Heidi our own is in a state of being lowly weak. So the Dow has to be appropriate for the condition of the EMA. The second thing he mentioned Salalah, who he was selling them in this hadith very important, as relates to the characteristic of the Muslim majority, Allah is key that will ruin my sustenance and Allah what he was selling my stipend weekly, monthly, yearly, my salary, my money, my risk has been made, and it's been put under the shade of my spirit.

00:17:06--> 00:17:52

It's part of the Hadith is important for many reasons. One meaning of the Hadith is the Jihad that the Prophet used to make some law what he was sending him was a Jihad of Rama. He just didn't go and kill people. sallallahu It was said that he would make Jihad by giving Dawa and allies Allah commanded in the Quran First, be my first that Bhima taught me what you have been ordered to do get up and give Dawa Abdullah said when this ayah was revealed, prior to that, we used to be in Dharma autocom hiding, giving Dawa to those who are Muslims, then allow rebill this is first dar Bhima. Tomorrow, we'll analyze shrieking and turn away from the mystery king. He came out in public and

00:17:52--> 00:18:34

started giving Dawa in Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which I hate to be Jihad and Kabira make the big Jihad with this core Alia Mohammed. So he used to give Dawa to the Quran without fighting people in Mecca sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And then when he went to Medina, and he made his Dolan his country and he had power, he gave down with his Nissan and with the ban explaining with his tongue, with the Quran with knowledge with achema. And then when the people didn't accept that, he took from them the jizya the people from anarchy, Todd

00:18:35--> 00:19:00

had to jizya Tang, Aiden, woohoo, I'm sorry, Ron, take from them the jizya and they're going to be down in order to live in the Muslim state, Empire country and they're going to get rights and protection and so forth so on. So he would not force them into this religion gave him dour and Rokita thin except the dour. He saw a lot he was seven total you have to pay the jizya then they pay the jizya.

00:19:02--> 00:19:49

And then after giving Dawa and then offering the jizya the people refuse to pay. That's when he fought some a lot while he was selling milk carton and Nance had to do an la ilaha illAllah Muhammad in Abu rasuluh I've been saved to fight the people into the bear witness La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah so what are we killing people for? Where are we killing people in order for them to say la ilaha illa Allah, the crazy terrorism radical stuff going on? You're killing people, and you just marring and spoiling the name of Islam and the Muslims. And you're doing that for your anger. You understand? I don't condone it I understand. We're all upset and we're all angry. But two wrongs

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

don't make a right and our Deen two wrongs don't make a right. So this Jihad of the nebby Salalah it was said he said in this hadith my

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

sustenance has been made under the shade of my spirit. The meaning of that is when it came to a jihad. And when it came to the jizya Rasulullah sallallahu, it was sending us to take a portion of that from the Medina. So when the Muslims will go and they will fight, they will subdue their enemies who fought against them, and tried to distinguish extinguished in light of Allah and tried to prevent that light from flowing.

00:20:30--> 00:20:43

So he fought them, he subdued them, he took their horses, took their camels took their stuff, some of the law what he was silent, and from what he took, he used it for himself. Salawat de la he was sent me money. What's wrong with that?

00:20:44--> 00:21:28

What's wrong with that? You look at the Torah, you look at the NGO, the prophets and messengers of Benny Israel, they used to have fights and they used to deal with the enemy. What's wrong with that? The people today, the people today, go into sovereign lands, conquer them, take their money, topple the government, steal their funds, and then they're going to come and say to us, Muslims, Muslims, and we're going to apologize. Now we're going to say, No, we'll respond back to you people with the reality of the wisdom of our religion, our religion is not built upon nonsense. So the first meaning of this hadith is when it came to jihad, when it came to at jizya. Or al Fey, the Prophet salla love

00:21:28--> 00:21:40

what he was sending us to get a home see us to get a fifth of the spoils of war. And he used to take that because that was honorable. He didn't take welfare from people. He didn't take sadaqa from people. So a lot of what he was saying.

00:21:41--> 00:22:07

He didn't take any of that from people. His arrest came from what he made with the jihad, and then you don't find him being a war monger, killing people all over the place. He was giving people breaks, cutting him Slack, giving them breaks after they would break their covenants multiple times, then he would deal with them. So I love what he was saying. The second meaning of my sword

00:22:08--> 00:22:18

or the sustenance that Ally's provided for me is under the shade of my room. It goes to show us one of the virtues of the spear in Islam.

00:22:20--> 00:23:04

Because the sword in the language of the Arabs in their history is more important than the spirit it's been mentioned more times. The sword has over 100 names in Arabic literature, because anything that's important they will give it a lot of names. The romance is not like that. It's not like that. He said in the Hadith, Salah love what he was sending when he was asked about the person who got killed and Shaheed Will he get any fitna in the adab of the cover. The Prophet told them some of the law while he was sending them katha Baraka to sue you for era see he fitna. It's enough that the sword he was in jihad, and the Sunway hit the sword, and it was glimmering. And he saw the glimmer,

00:23:05--> 00:23:24

that glimmer of the sword with the enemy. I haven't obviously, it's not like that today. It's like the bullets flying, those bullets are red and yellow. And the person has to be out in seeing that stuff. So if he gets killed, he doesn't get the fitness, the vibe of the cover. So he mentioned the sword. He didn't mention the run.

00:23:25--> 00:23:39

He said to the people, some of them love what he was selling them a lot more and urban Jenna de la, the CEO of you, people have to know that the doors of agenda are under the shade of the swords.

00:23:40--> 00:23:46

Meaning when you go out and you fight for disability, like you get the right Shahada, you're gonna go to a gentleman, he didn't say it was the wrong.

00:23:48--> 00:24:03

So the fact that he mentioned it here shows it has some virtues, and is given us any shout out to something that's really important. And that is this, Heidi, my risk is under the shade of the room. A means

00:24:04--> 00:24:50

I'm going to work. I'm going to be working and being self sufficient. I'm not going to be on welfare. I'm not going to be on the dole. if I can help it. I'm not going to be on the dope because in our religion, the upper hand has given the southern does better than the lower hand. especially as it relates to the upper hand being a non Muslim hand and the lower hand being a Muslim hand. And that's why he told the people suddenly love what he was sending them new Hina and Zubin mushrikeen we have been prohibited from taking the gifts from the non Muslims. When those gifts Intel, you being down. When the gift entails. The non Muslim has given you a gift to be quiet. to bribe you not

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

to say the truth. They're giving you a gift. greasing your palm, they want something and by you taking that gift, you're compromising something. Someone's out

00:25:00--> 00:25:33

compromising your religion can't take that. But if a non Muslim were to give you a gift, you could take the gift as long as there are no strings attached. The Prophet did that sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So our gift now is the lady she asked the line she is going to get the welfare and say, you know, things that are not true line about our religion. So this hadith is talking about as the marvelous land the importance of giving a job. So the scholars of Islam, they used to write books like that, like the great humbling scholar and Imam, Abu Bakar.

00:25:34--> 00:25:47

He has a book called keytab asuna. One of those great books in Ellis lamb talk about the men hedge and the aqeedah of the self refer to why and he was the man who brought the method of Imam Ahmed together

00:25:48--> 00:25:59

Kitab Asana, the Muslim Student of knowledge has to have that book in his library. Anyway, he wrote a book, he called that book and have an IT Jara wasana.

00:26:01--> 00:26:49

How Islam encourages you to do business at ijarah, and to manufacture things. Now in the Muslim world. Everything that comes to us comes to us from outside, although we have the richest countries on the face of the earth in Africa, and other than that, even the oil that we possess, now Muslims have to come and get it out of the ground, and they get half more than half of what is produced. We don't make anything. Chinese people make everything. So that a man wrote that book like the render man after him before him, one of the great scholars during me now Rama to lay I lay he's one of the scholars right there in Yemen right now. For the love of Lenin, Allah who he wrote a book and he

00:26:49--> 00:27:30

said and Baraka Fie, Sai will harika the Baraka and the blessings that come as a result of going out and trying to work and moving. So the man came from the companions. That was one way I lay him to get Southern. You're so lucky to have set up a feasibility lab. I'm broke, I just need some dumb, I'm broke. It happens to everybody. Can I get some sadaqa from Allah as money? I need it. Then maybe who have Rama he said to the man son in law, what do you send them for you to take a rope and to go and to cut down some wood and get some wood and gather that wood up and going sell that wood is better than me giving you something?

00:27:33--> 00:27:47

He said it's better for one of you if you're going to die, it's better for you to leave your children self sufficient with money so that they don't have to go around asking people can we have can we have and maybe the people will give or maybe the people won't give.

00:27:48--> 00:27:59

And then when the person gives you that sadaqa is going to look at you especially if he doesn't have demon taqwa. Even the organization the masjid will look at you as if you owe them.

00:28:00--> 00:28:10

They you owe us you remember I did this for you, ma'am. I did that for you. You don't get any borrow any money. You don't take sadaqa from anybody, they won't ask you later on, they won't look at you, like

00:28:11--> 00:28:12

you owe them.

00:28:14--> 00:28:59

So that maybe was a lot while he was sending in that aspect of the Hadith is showing the people the importance of working. He says a lot when he was sending them what kinda Zakaria jaren Zakaria, he was in a job, the best Southern that a man can give the subtlety that he gives is the money that he makes with his own hands. So this is one of the reasons why the strong believer is better than the weak believer, he can go and get a job. So before moving on to the next point, I want to bring this to your attention. And that is as it relates to getting a job from the best qualities and characteristics that a Muslim youngster can have is to get educated and get a job. And while you're

00:28:59--> 00:29:49

getting educated if you can get a job to help supplement what you need. This is from what Eliza loves as the Prophet says a lot when he was in a lie your hip boom it in a more I love loves it that you engage yourself in the big, high and exalted issues. Go get a job while you're studying. And what's that job? What's that job? He's somewhere washing cars. He's washing cars. He's doing a menial job, nominal job, but it's golden. His objective is I'm doing this just to work my way through the University. I'm doing this just tell my parents not be a liability on my parents. As for being unemployed and being lazy, shiftless and a bum. That's not the characteristic of the movement,

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

the Tao of the people of a Sufi ism at the soul worth they came. We have a concept in our religion called tawakkol where we rely on

00:30:00--> 00:30:11

Allah, your risk is going to come to you from Allah. And when when the child is formed in his mother's stomach.

00:30:12--> 00:30:26

After 120 days, the angel comes and tells him how much money is written down how much money you're going to make, you won't go one penny over that, nor will you go one penny under that. So you have to work

00:30:27--> 00:31:07

low and not come to work tomorrow and law he has to work alone he has to a coup de la raza kocoum Camaros have to fire a few people rely on Allah, the way you really should rely on Allah, then he will provide for you the same way you provide for the bird. The bird goes out in the morning, his stomach is empty. And he comes back after that, and his stomach is full, because his arrest is written from the Senate and allies responsible for feeding everybody forgiving to everybody that people have to so if they come in, they say, Well, I'm just going to sit and let the rest come to me.

00:31:09--> 00:31:49

Because the Prophet didn't have a job, some Allah who it was sending them, Who told you to profit and have a job. So I used to make Jihad sell the law while he was selling it. And he would take from the spoils of war Who told you that? And that is not a telecon. That is a tawakkol. And it's being irresponsible. And the court dealt with that issue when people want to leave in the oven, and they want to perform hygiene without bringing the assistance. They didn't want to bring their sustenance and a lot told them this don't do that. You have to feel like you can This is not our religion. The next part of the Hadith is that the Prophet mentioned some of the law while he was setting them

00:31:49--> 00:31:57

anyway, anyone who goes against my command, anyone who opposes me, then he would be made to be small and insignificant.

00:31:58--> 00:31:59

Would you Allah

00:32:01--> 00:32:15

Zulu SRR Allah man holla for me, anyone who opposes when I say what I brought my religion anyone, Muslim, non Muslim, Arab, non Arab, white, black rich, poor, man, woman.

00:32:16--> 00:32:23

Share regular person, anyone who opposes it, then is going to be made to be lowly.

00:32:24--> 00:33:03

Finding sooner or later if anybody makes them Okada to the newbies Scylla lady was sending them he's gonna have a problem either in the dounia. If he doesn't get it in the dunya, it will get in the hereafter. He may get it in a dunya and he may get it in the hereafter. And we have to understand that opposition and being in opposition to what the prophet brought subtle it was sent him is not all the same, there are different levels. The one who disobeyed Eliza gel and one or two or three things is not like the one who disobeyed them in 100,000 things. The one who disobeys allows prophets, Allah, Allah while he was sending them in some things, but he still believes in Islam is

00:33:03--> 00:33:45

not like the one who turns away all together and disbelieves in what he brought, and he disobeyed and he opposed him in that particular issue. Woman out of victory for in Allahumma schatten banca when Ashura yamaki Amati Amma, anyone who turns away from what we brought my Vicar he's gonna have a tough life in the dunya it's gonna be tough, and Yokoyama will raise him up, he is going to be blind. So our community right now, we are in opposition to what the prophet brought in many instances. Someone loved what he was selling. And there are still a lot of hate in our office. I don't want to sound totally absolutely pessimistic in dark.

00:33:47--> 00:33:59

But what we see going on in our communities with the Prophet prophet sighs sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So as a result of that we are lowly. There's a hadith he says a lot what he was saying, either Tobias tomb ballerina

00:34:01--> 00:34:19

will have to deniable baugher what are the xara welteroth terminal Jihad FISA de la sala de la la la, la la une zero height that Raja Dino calm. If you people become preoccupied and you start taking rebar and dealing with rebar

00:34:21--> 00:34:59

and you become pre engaged with the dunya like going after animals and farming and dealing with your vegetation. And you abandon algae have he said that Allah is going to make this community low, and he won't take that loneliness off of you until you return back to your religion. And to go back to the original religion that the Prophet brought sallallahu alayhi wa it was sent. So sooner or later he mentioned in the Quran, terracotta Allah familia de la Vina, you highly funa Anna Marie and to Cebu in fitna to know you see them

00:35:00--> 00:35:45

daboo alene let all of the people be where those people want to be in opposition to what he commanded sallallahu wasallam that a serious punishment of fitness going to hit you or serious punishment and Imam admit he said this is the fitna here and the fitna the turmoil the fitna the drama The problem. He said the fitna here is coffin, let them be where if you oppose him that you may fall into copper. It's not saying if a person makes a mistake, he's a Catholic, saying that if a person consistently opposes the nibi son, the law while he was sending them, maybe he'll get the black thing that is written over his heart, and he can distinguish the heart from the bottom, the

00:35:45--> 00:35:53

model from the monkey and the monkey from the matter of and then it just becomes close and he disbelieves and aligns with him.

00:35:55--> 00:36:06

So from the characteristics of the believing men and believing woman is not to be in opposition to the prophets of the love when you send them as those many is described.

00:36:07--> 00:36:32

You will not believe in man or believing woman if a lion is messages decides something for you to have anything to say about that thing. You just say we hear and we obey. That's the sign that's the characteristic of the true believer in men believing woman even if we make mistakes here or there. We make told them we try we make Toba and we try to do better. We have sorrow for the mistake, we try to do better.

00:36:33--> 00:36:38

The last issue that the Imam brought Rahmatullahi tonali he

00:36:39--> 00:37:16

huffy the hula, a shift it and halaby. From the characteristics of the Muslim This is really important women to shut up your coalmine for a minimum, anyone who resembles a people he acts like a people that he's from those people is really important. One of the great best books that she had Islamic Tamia wrote, and he wrote it to be on the level of the regular people because he has some books. It's just for Brahma, you can't understand what is he talking about? Because a lot of philosophy in there, and he's writing the way what they call the Nef shuttle.

00:37:18--> 00:37:50

For the sake of argument, let's say this, and they say that, and it will bring some of the statements of what deviant people believe. So if you're not careful, the person who was on deviance will come and say, Abel, who Tamia he said this in his book right here. And he didn't say that. He was talking to refute it saying, let's say that that is true. But anyway, one of the books that he wrote for the n r one from our own minds a book that is called the law, a certain stalking morality as Harbinger him.

00:37:52--> 00:38:02

It is following and being upon that set up the monster team and being different from the people who are from the Hellfire, the whodunit. nesara

00:38:04--> 00:38:10

being different from them is part of our religion. You cannot be a Muslim you just say that you lie in a law that said,

00:38:11--> 00:38:37

you have to say la ilaha illAllah which means you only worship Allah and you reject the worship of everything other than a line you freed yourself from what is worship along with Allah Shik, and you free yourself from the people who worship other than Ally's agenda. So one of the most important principles in Islam is lol our Bara. llll, Bara, the Muslims have

00:38:38--> 00:38:54

and will add to the people of Ellis land. We're friends and protectors of one another, and Al Bara, we free ourselves animosity and enmity between us and the people of coffin and ship.

00:38:56--> 00:39:15

And whoever doesn't have that, and he takes it the other way. As Allah mentioned the Quran, we're mainly at the one level men. When men get older men confer no men whom any Muslim who takes them as his protector, takes them as his bosom buddies, his people that he is from them.

00:39:16--> 00:39:53

The meaning that that Heidi for men to chabahar be common for who are men whom anyone who resembles a group of people that he's from those people, meaning you're from those people in that particular thing. So you can be a person who you behave like the Hawaii cottage. You may not be from the Hawaii cottage. But if you make takfeer very easily, you harm and beat up and fight the Muslims and shed their blood from the characteristics of the holodeck is they leave the people of copper and they kill the people of Ellis lab.

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

Some people that's what the Dow is. The Dow is the fight the people of the sun.

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

That's what the Dow is.

00:40:02--> 00:40:08

Some Muslims, their issue is not coming down to the yehudah nasaan, the mushrikeen.

00:40:10--> 00:40:20

The Dow is just put in the Muslims down from the different groups, each group is happy with what it has. So we put all the Muslims down.

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

You can be from the people up at the soul worth, and you consider yourself a person of the sinner. But you're one of those people, whatever your shift says it goes, whether you understand it and you don't understand it, whatever he says it goes, and you did not challenge the opinion of your share, or your group.

00:40:44--> 00:41:09

That's the meaning of this. Anybody who resembles a people then he is from those people. The profit made in his business on the law, who it was sent them to do a lot of things to show the Muslims the importance of the Muslim is the person that has a unique and distinct character, and a unique and distinct image. And he has to make efforts to maintain the need to keep it.

00:41:10--> 00:41:32

That's part of our religious responsibility. You want to get married, you have to marry a lady who's on board with that concept. And that idea, not the lady who says, I want the character. I want the character of my children to melt away in the mouth and part of America. I don't want her to be identified as a Muslim. So I named her Susie.

00:41:33--> 00:42:09

I don't want my boy to know or to be proud of Islam. So I only live with the non Muslims and they grow up just around the non Muslims. The only time she would put a hijab on is if she comes to the masjid or if there's a little talk that they go to. She put the flimsy hijab on but you asked her about the basics of Islam. The kid doesn't know anything about this religion. You ask the child of some of the Muslims just named for me one month in less than one month. I can't tell you Ramadan. In the last 12 months one, it's not so much as the fall of the child. The parents wanted to fit in.

00:42:11--> 00:42:23

And I'm not saying it's haram to live in Edgbaston. I'm not saying that. I want to live in Edgbaston. I'm not saying that's wrong. I'm saying when you move to Edgbaston, you have to make efforts to maintain and to keep your kids identity.

00:42:24--> 00:42:30

You have to watch it. So look at our nebby sallallahu alayhi wa Taala it was seller.

00:42:31--> 00:42:43

He used to look at the yahood if they part of their hair one way were part of his hair the other way some of what he was saying and they saw that he was always making efforts to be different from them.

00:42:44--> 00:42:45

The hold

00:42:47--> 00:43:16

if a lady had her period, a Chroma Kamala, what Tara like the lady had a period, the Jewish people during the time of the Prophet sallallahu it was sending them would abandon that lady, they wouldn't sit with her and socialize with her. They wouldn't eat with her. They would just isolate her and marginalize her and she has to you know, stay in place as if she has the plague.

00:43:18--> 00:43:29

So some of the Muslims realize this and recognize this because they were in Medina, they were around the yield. So the extra profit about it so a lot while he was setting up, whatever was the condition of the woman.

00:43:30--> 00:44:00

Allah rebuilt the idea of the Quran. Yes, Luna aka Anima he called who thought it was a nice Nisa effin Mahi. They asked you about the periods of the women they asked you about the myths of the woman tell them in her period, it is a hurt. It's a hurt song. So avoid them. When they have this means when they have it, avoid them, to have relationships with them at that time. It's a harm don't do that.

00:44:02--> 00:44:14

The Prophet when this ayah was revealed, he told the people some of the love why he was sending them his narrow color Shay in England, he can do everything with her but don't have relationships.

00:44:15--> 00:44:52

So our mother IE shut up the law said when one of them would have the periods. The Prophet would do everything except have relationships. He was affectionate to them. He wouldn't hug them. So law while he was sending them, he would kiss them as he kissed them in different occasions. He would have enjoyment with them. But he wouldn't go that far. Look what they do who said that you said this man Mohammed. There's nothing that comes to him about us except that he wants to change everything that we're doing. He wants to go against everything that we're doing. And that's the truth.

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

Few days ago, last week, we did the psalm of Ashura. Those of you who fasted, he said to the yo

00:45:00--> 00:45:13

What are you guys doing on this day they said this is the day alive saved Moosa and his followers and this is the day that a lot destroy from our own and his followers Salawat the law was sent me why the NBA in

00:45:15--> 00:45:27

the Navy said, No, a hacker were older, be Muslim income, we're closer to him. We have more rights. He told the community we're gonna fast the 10th. And then as time went on, he said, what

00:45:28--> 00:45:39

does that fast was wired up at the beginning of Islam is before Ramadan, he told the Muslims, if I live to next year, I'm gonna fast the ninth and the 10th to be different from them.

00:45:41--> 00:45:48

How do we how are we different from them and Ashura, they made it a day of celebration, we don't make it a day of celebration.

00:45:50--> 00:46:38

The way we celebrate is by obeying allies with each other. So if a person gets married, he has a baby. That's not the time to make sugar with maaseiah. You got married, don't have a mixing of the men and the women you got married. Don't bring music. You got married, don't do craziness. plucking the eyes Sherry's gonna be at all of that stuff. The way we give sugar to Eliza Joe is by obedience to Eliza, we OBEY Him and you have a good time. So my point is the Nabhi was on the love while he was sending them used to make it an effort to be different from those people. He used to face Jerusalem. He didn't want to face Jerusalem, he will look to the sky looking for a different Qibla

00:46:38--> 00:46:58

other than Jerusalem, then allies or just turn your face towards Mecca, being different from the hood. He said to the people suddenly love what he was sending them hyvee full your hood, venom niacin, Luna Fini, Isley, him with her fafi him be different from the Jews, praying your shoes,

00:46:59--> 00:47:31

praying your shoes, and praying your hopes. Because the Jews don't pray in their shoes, and they don't pray in their hopes. So if we can imagine all of us, we go to a seminar in a local hotel. So we use in the big room for the seminar and watching the different things on the big screen. It's time for salaat we pull the chairs and the tables on the side someone makes the event we get in the line to make the salon everybody takes his shoes off.

00:47:33--> 00:47:44

Although now Muslims are walking all over the floor every day all day. So whatever dirt you trying to avoid, I don't get the carpet is dirty.

00:47:45--> 00:47:52

We take all our shoes off and we pray because it's a symbol. Take your shoes off, there's no

00:47:53--> 00:48:12

the companions used to pray in the shoes problem. Mohammed used to pray in their shoes, some of the love while he was selling them two of the companions, two of the companions. One of them, I believe is Abu Dhabi. And the other one, I don't recall who it was. He went to a sham to meet up with them.

00:48:17--> 00:49:06

Or he met up with him somewhere. And when it was time to pray, one of the people who was in the group took his shoes off. And he said Why are you taking off your shoes? He said because a lot tomu said to take his shoes off when he came to meet a lot. And he said that this ground is holy ground. Yeah. That's it in the Quran. s la la la phenocopy. Take off your shoes. You're in a blessing land. He asked him are you and bless it land isn't a regular place. So my point here is, is an a and a command from the nebby praying your shoes and praying your hopes. Why? Because yahoo yahoo don't do that. He said, leave your beers leave your beers and trim your mustaches because your vote the

00:49:06--> 00:49:08

nesara they

00:49:09--> 00:49:12

shave their beards and they leave their mustaches.

00:49:13--> 00:49:21

So the Muslim has to make some efforts honey to hold on to and to maintain the Islamic

00:49:22--> 00:49:25

the Islamic identity because too many things happen.

00:49:26--> 00:49:40

Abdullah even Ahmed even asked one of the four Abaddon and what was collected by an Imam Muslim. He said that a man came out with a thought and the prophet SAW the thought that he was wearing Southern light he was sent him so he told the man in the heavy Fei

00:49:42--> 00:49:50

means the abbot Kufa, fanatical bizarre. This is the job of the non Muslim so don't wear it. So what is the meaning of

00:49:51--> 00:49:59

being like the kofod as it relates to their clothes? Does that mean you can wait jeans? Does that mean you can't wear a hoodie? Does that mean that you can

00:50:00--> 00:50:28

wear a suit with a tie doesn't mean that the coals that non Muslims are known for. They're known for those clothes. Those are the clothes that we can't resemble them in. So you can't resemble the priests can't resemble the priests who has that thing. That Nick thing you know that the priests can't dress like the Pope, for example, the Muslim woman can't wear the sari like the Hindu lady is the sorry, it is the sorry.

00:50:30--> 00:50:39

Those things that these people are known for. So for our youngsters, you shouldn't have hair cuts like non Muslims, half of your hair low here and high over there, Chanel.

00:50:41--> 00:51:24

He has a long ponytail at the end of you shouldn't have that. Walking around and dressing around in your pants are down your waist, the way the non Muslims look. The way some of these people addressing the Muslim has to hold on to his Islamic identity, and concluding check on Islamic Guru tainment gave some reasons why it is haram for us to resemble them. He mentioned a number of things. Number one, if a person insists on resembling them, it could be a sign that he's not happy with what Allah has legislated. He doesn't want to be the Muslim that's unique and distinct from everybody else. There's a hadith where he mentioned some of the love what he was saying I'm not an Allahu and

00:51:24--> 00:51:41

watershed behind the MENA region been Nyssa one watershed behind him in a Nyssa eBill region. Allah has cursed the men who resemble women, and the women who resemble men. Why would a man resemble a woman in a way he walks? You could see him as soon as he comes into the room.

00:51:42--> 00:51:45

You see him right? It is a problem.

00:51:47--> 00:51:52

And the opposite as well. And if you see what I'm saying, a Why? Well, I was born like that.

00:51:53--> 00:51:59

So the person has it all he has a problem. You have the one who is undercover.

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

He's in a closet, you don't know what's going on, that's still Haram, in our Deen in the closet on the Bo is still hold on. But then you have that guy who comes out and he straight up about that life.

00:52:13--> 00:52:15

He has athira the problem.

00:52:16--> 00:52:39

Like the lady who wants to resemble the man, and the man who wants to resemble the lady, they have been cursed on the tongue of the newbies on the last one, even I don't even sell them. Because the person may be having a problem with what allies legislated. The Muslim should look like this lady should look like that, and so forth and so on. Another issue is when the Muslims resemble other people. It's a sign of weakness.

00:52:41--> 00:53:03

It's a sign of weakness. And this is what has happened in Europe, when Europe and Europeans went and it conquered any group of people, wherever, wherever, whatever, they conquer those people. And then they give them their religion, that racist religion of Christianity, those people grew up looking at themselves as being inferior to white people.

00:53:04--> 00:53:17

Some of us have inferiority complexes. So if you get into the taxi, if you get into the taxi, and you're a person of color, the one who's driving a taxi would say you got to pay up front guy pay up front.

00:53:20--> 00:53:33

But if a white person got into that same taxi, that same taxi says, Where you going, says I'm going all the way to London, he says, Yeah, let's go. And it doesn't ask him for the pay up front, although he's taking them to London.

00:53:35--> 00:54:05

Because we have their thing. He's not going to cheat me. But the other one is going to get me and cheat me. Not everybody is like that. Some people have it the other way around. And they're too strict and too rough and too nasty. And that when they see people who are white, they're nasty towards those people. And that's both of those are extremes. Both of those are extremes. Another reason and there are many another reason and there are many is that it makes a person love.

00:54:06--> 00:54:12

It makes a person love if a person is living with Hindus and around Hindu ism.

00:54:14--> 00:54:25

And he starts to practice their rituals like the Diwali and all of that stuff, the music, the Bollywood films that desensitize you.

00:54:28--> 00:54:33

They make you start loving the actors who are conferred mushriks well known for that.

00:54:35--> 00:54:47

And in those movies in those movies, they glorify they glorify schicken coffin and idols. So when the Muslim looks at that, his heart dies Bell,

00:54:48--> 00:54:58

grana it could be him. That thing happens when you don't know. You can distinguish heart from the bottle so you develop some love for them. cofra chic

00:55:00--> 00:55:45

Prophet said sallallahu alayhi wa it was selling them old Islam and mulwala phila, one more eye that filler will filler will book filler. The strongest institutions the strongest, not the strongest not in Al Islam is and whether taking people as friends and protectors and you being their friend and their protector and vice versa for Allah scores, and also also making enmity and animosity towards people who people who are against their religion. Number three loving people for love's sake number four hating people for love's sake.

00:55:47--> 00:55:57

And we explain this many times lagen hackmann, la de la new Cthulhu confit de la mujer common Dr. recomendable, rowhome, methoxy to LA.

00:55:58--> 00:56:40

Allah doesn't make it haram for you and your religion, Allah doesn't make it haram to be good, and to deal justly and kindly with those people who don't fight you for your religion and don't try to expel you from your homes. No, you don't have to be you be kind and nice and gentle with these people. The jihad in this land, Dylan, and dealing with people. And the way we're talking about is about the people who are fighting Muslims because of their religion and putting them out of their homes and destroying their property and doing all of those other things. So don't anyone come and misunderstand what I'm saying? Because we made it clear in too many other modalities. But someone

00:56:40--> 00:57:07

takes this one talk. And when they take my words out of context, a lot does it make it hard for you to do justly with people who are favoring just an ally, you hibben Moxie, Tina, Allah loves those who are fair, and those who are just so the shadman of Quran and from the Hadith, what if Allah is when an individual is a Muslim, he or she has a religious responsibility to protect their Islamic identity.

00:57:09--> 00:57:54

And you protect it in those ways that two religions say you dressed a particular way, we are made resume, we are different in our key that in our ibadah, we're different in our salute. We are different in the way we eat, and the way we drink and the way we talk. We're different. And the way we have relationships as husbands and wives. We're different in so many ways, from Alif, Tia in our religion. And then we have some parallels and some similarities. But the religion of Islam came and said, You have to do it this way. And you have to do it that way. You have to do it this way. Why? Let come Dean or camillia? Do you have your religion and we have ours and ours is different from

00:57:54--> 00:57:57

yours. We don't do these things that you're doing.

00:57:59--> 00:58:28

We don't take liberties, the way you're taking liberties. We're not liberal, the way you're liberal, we're not should do the way that you should be. We don't attach this thing to our ILA in our messages. Our Russell, we don't deal with people with this double standard in this imbalance, and on and on and on and on. So with that, honey, that's the second idea of the nebby sunlen love, why do you send them from this particular book? If you brothers have any questions? We'll take about five minutes to answer your questions in the calendar.

00:58:31--> 00:58:32

And in the

00:58:34--> 00:58:56

next week, be in the lab. The Hadith is about being balanced and loving in a balanced way. You're responsible for that child to be on time so that you can read the Heidi fish Allah for us have a will so Lola who was sending him about it got in there been a while not only he was happy, he may have sent out my request to what what about a cat
