00:00:01--> 00:00:06

And then handed in law he Meadowhall and a stay in Ohio and I stuck through

00:00:07--> 00:00:18

when I left him in sharoni and phocoena woman saying the Aditya Molina, Mayor de la who philomel Dinallo, homie nudelman fella ha de la

00:00:19--> 00:00:40

should one Eva in LA the hula surely can oh well I shall do no Mohammedan Abdo rasuluh salatu wa he was sent me while he uh my Bible for in the halal canal can mo la he will halen houda houda Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

more Matter of fact to her wakulla death in VEDA tune, or collab with itin balada Tomoko beratan, phenol,

00:00:52--> 00:01:11

come to the Hadith today of Abu huraira. Many allies are generally pleased with him, and had some of the scholars criticized its authenticity. shala appears to be a Heidi that is, has been in some of the contemporary order, Mr. gradin is being so hey,

00:01:12--> 00:01:41

that is a statement of the nebby Salalah what he was selling and given a number of descriptions of the believers personality, something we have to struggle for, strive for, try our best to inculcate it is from the good teachings of the Prophet of Islam, some of the law, what do you send them when he said, and men are two men, when men a whole movement, you could fly him to Who

00:01:43--> 00:01:44

were your photo memorare.

00:01:45--> 00:01:53

So the Heidi has four components of four different ideas describing

00:01:54--> 00:02:00

an integral, an integral, important aspect of the Muslim personality, he said,

00:02:01--> 00:02:11

that the believer is a mirror to the believer. So if you are Muslim, you are mirror a mirror to all of the other believers.

00:02:13--> 00:02:30

And he said, the believer is also the brother of another believer, as has been established in the Quran, and the authentic son of the Prophet sallallahu what he was sending them in them and me knowing what on verily the believers of brothers

00:02:31--> 00:02:39

and the Prophet mentioned in other Hadith, Salah when he was sending them and Muslim, a whole Muslim, the Muslim is a brother to another Muslim.

00:02:41--> 00:03:34

The third thing he described about the believer, he said that the believer, he does his level best in order to safeguard the property of his brother. He doesn't allow his brother to suffer any loss as it relates to his property as it relates to his family, as it relates to his affairs, his issues. So if the Muslim were to lose something from the heart that the person has upon you, as a believer, is that you don't steal it, you don't go away with it. So we shouldn't cause people to lose their property. The fourth thing he mentioned something a lot while he was sending them is that the believer, he defends his brother in his absence. He defends his brother, when his brother is not

00:03:34--> 00:03:49

present. This Hadith of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam no doubt is from his job here and kill him. It's one of those many a hadith that explained to us the fear of the Brotherhood of a loose lamb.

00:03:50--> 00:04:13

I think most people know and understand in the grasp that we are brothers in this religion. They grasp that concept, theoretically speaking, but the fifth of the Brotherhood and how to be brothers one to another, the understanding the correct understanding of it, and the importance that Ellis lamb placed on the issue.

00:04:14--> 00:04:59

Most people don't know except those people that allies with general had has Rotom upon them, and he guided them to understand this critical issue. A whole lot to fill Islam, the Brotherhood of Islam, you will find that a person may be someone's biological brother, but they don't get along for one reason or another. They don't speak and the enemies and they have enmity and animosity towards one another. And then you'll find people who are brothers in this religion and they are closer to their religious brothers than they are to their own blood brothers especially when the boat the blood brothers are on another religion other than theirs. So no

00:05:00--> 00:05:51

said to Eliza Joe that he wanted his son to be saved. He said, My son is my son, my family. And a lot of the time I mentioned to No, no who lays him in Alec in Amazon hateful silence. He's not from your family. He does the actions of those people who are not religious, your family or the family of those people who have an Amen. So because his son was a person who was doing those things against the Dean alized agenda negated and said he's natural from your family. He's the biological son of his biological son, no doubt about that. But the real family in Ellis land is the one that's going to be a benefit your mukhiya Moon people are on this Dean, and they become brothers and sisters, one

00:05:51--> 00:06:38

to another. So this is one of the many ahaadeeth that gives us the fifth of the Brotherhood of Islam. We have mentioned in this ministry, and in other massage it a lecture about the fifth of the Brotherhood of Allah Sam, we have mentioned that the scholars of Islam based upon the Quran, the sooner they say that the Brotherhood of Al Islam has three or three pillars to it. Like the other kind of Al Islam and the other kind of man, the thing that the structure is built upon, if the foundation is going to be weaker than whatever is built upon is going to be weak. And those scholars said from the IRA, the lows who kind of went down in the Quran.

00:06:39--> 00:07:26

In taboo, a common Salah will add to second one openfit Deen if those now Muslims of Quraysh Yami. If they make Toba and they perform Salah, and they give the Zakat, then they're your brothers in Islam. So Allah established his brotherhood between Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and the non Muslims of Quraysh when they did those three things, and we explain what is it to be making Toba for a person to leave ship can to come into all this land. And he has to establish the solar but if he's not praying, then he's not your brother. Because the difference between a man being a Muslim and a non Muslim is the Salah. Whoever abandons it, he has disbelieved. And the third issue is zakat. And

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

we explained all of that. We also explained from what the writer motherless lamb said that the Brotherhood of Islam and has levels it's not just one level of brotherhood,

00:07:38--> 00:08:21

the lowest level of brotherhood is that you shouldn't harm or hurt your brother in any shape, form or fashion, no, ever. You shouldn't smoke, when smoking is going to hurt him. You shouldn't leave something in the road that can possibly harm him. His little child is running around the masjid and you want to discipline the child in a way that's going to annoy him. So the least that we should do is we shouldn't make an error that shouldn't bother people annoy him. The next level of the Brotherhood is love and for your brother, what you love for yourself, loving for your brother, what you love for yourself. And not being from the top 15 those people who we want full measure when it's

00:08:21--> 00:09:05

for us. But when it's against us, we don't give full measure. And then we have the third and highest level of the Brotherhood in Las LAN. And that is an ethos for you to prefer your brother over yourself. You have the right to something in your heart. But you give it to him out of respect out of love. The way the answer did when the Mahajan came to them from mechanic came to Medina allow the describing you feel Runa and forcing him will can be him kasasa like the little man little brother. He just gave this to me and it was his heart. But he brought it to me just oh hello higher.

00:09:06--> 00:09:35

So a lot described the inside and he said that they preferred the mohajir Nene over themselves. Although they didn't have any money. They didn't have anything. But the little that they had, they gave it to him. So that's the highest level of the Brotherhood from the keytab. And as soon as it relates to the issue of today, it deals with the third aspect that we had talked about and that is the rights of the brothers, the rights of the Brotherhood, and they are locked

00:09:36--> 00:09:59

in what was collected by a Muslim the Prophet sallallahu Sallam happened Muslim man and Muslim sit to the rights that a Muslim has and another Muslim or six. And he went to mention that and he mentioned these six in this hadith because of their importance. There are other ones that have been mentioned, like what we have in today's Hadith from the rights that we have upon each other

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

Akita hufa Salim alaihe. If you meet your brother, then give him salaams. Whether the ARCA for Egypt, if he invite you, then you should answer the invitation to the aka, to the walima, to the dinner, to the lunch to whatever it is if he invite you, you should go. He says Allah, why do you sell them? Wherever Stan sotha funds level, if he asked you for advice and give him sincere, true advice, don't give him advice, to rip them off, to take advantage of them to send them astray. He mentioned some of the law while he was sending them whatever atossa

00:10:44--> 00:11:13

for Hamidullah fishermen, if he sneezes and says Alhamdulillah, then you should say your hammock law. That's only if he says Alhamdulillah is his heart. Hi, Joe. And hamdulillah your hammock Allah, if he doesn't say and hamdulillah you don't have to give him his rights. You don't have to say anything. Like the baby who sneezes in the baby can say at hamdulillah la you can live Allahu nafcillin levels.

00:11:14--> 00:11:54

And then we mentioned sallalahu it was set number five a that Merida for root who if you become sick from his rights is that you should go and you should visit him. It doesn't have to necessarily be in the hospital, it can be bedridden at home, it could break broke, he could have broken his leg. So he's incapacitated for a day or two, you're going to visit him in that condition with that matter for tobacco. And if he dies from his rights, that you follow his genetic, so that he's mentioned six, but there are more than those six, just issue of janaza. From his heart case, you have to pray over him. From his heart days you have to wash his body from his heart because you have to take care

00:11:54--> 00:12:41

of his his debt and so forth and so on. He told the people something a lot while he was sending them help your brother, if he is oppressed, or if he is the old presser. They say we know how to help him if he is oppressed, but how do we help him if he's the oppressor? He says stop him from doing the oppression. You have to assist him and grab him and stop him from doing the oppression. So the whole point of the Brotherhood, the rights of the Brotherhood, they are many, the fifth of the Brotherhood and Al Islam and by default, The Sisterhood of Islam. The fifth of this issue is an issue that we need to read about we need to comprehend and more than that, we have to try to imply we have to try

00:12:41--> 00:12:47

to practice it. Now you may know a hadoken hotter you bully a he might be good enough see him and

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

none of you truly believes into love for your brother which you love for yourself.

00:12:54--> 00:13:29

You don't really believe in Ellis lamb and you love for that brother, but you love for yourself. Which brings us to today's issue. Prophet sallallahu it was sent him said a lot about the Brotherhood of Islam and that's because he brought different people together as mentioned in a number of Ayat of the Quran called Yeah, you Hannah's in me Rasulullah he in a coma say oh people, I'm the Messenger of Allah to all of you people. When ma ma ma ma ma sanaka illa katha linas

00:13:30--> 00:14:15

Bashir when Avira we sent you to all of the people as a warner and as a person giving glad tidings. So since the Prophet was sent to everybody, some the love what he was sending them, everybody from the men and the jinn. Why didn't black rich and poor, Arab and non Arab, that means that people have to come and learn and understand how to be brothers in this religion. And that's what we saw when we saw the blueprint of success being shown to us by the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who came from different tribes and different backgrounds. And they showed us the practical way of how they became brothers. We saw it. We saw how they were before Ellis lamb and Jamia and then we

00:14:15--> 00:14:59

saw when they came in into Islam, how they became brothers, although they were from different backgrounds, different walks of life, I will bucha amount of man and it was Arabs from Quraysh Sandman and fantasy was Persian, from Persia far far away from where the Arabs were belie liberated by although he had Arab in him. He was from Ethiopia, Habesha Roddy Alon Jemaine suhaib, Rumi was from Rome. So all of these people, they had different backgrounds and some of them they had the background of being from the hood and they came into this religion and alarm

00:15:00--> 00:15:46

mentioned about the whole ledger then shed the nasty adult in the levena Amano Elio hood, Valentina assura co, you'll find those people with the most enmity, animosity problems towards the believers are the yo hold, and the polytheists. And that's because Islam is the religion of the towhee. And the Muslim cone. They like shirking, they don't like to hate. Islam is the religion of what the prophets and the messengers were upon. And they are who they were killing the prophets and the messengers. So those two groups, you find them really, we've had an animosity towards the people for the slab, but when they were Missouri corn and accepted of Islam, when they will hold and they

00:15:46--> 00:15:56

accepted Islam during the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam they became brothers. And those companions they are a de Lille against us. They are

00:15:57--> 00:16:16

a de Lille against us. And that if they can do it, it can be done. A lot doesn't command people to do those things that are impossible. He commanded them and they showed us the way to do it. They showed us the do's and the don'ts and this is why it is important that we get

00:16:17--> 00:16:54

comprehension understanding of the Brotherhood and Ellis fam don't just read some hype it in there. No, we have to learn the issue. The do's and the don'ts. What does it mean to be hobbling la Hey, Jimmy Rocco was Kuru if consumed Ida for lF abena kulu decom. For spa Mati he wanna welcome to Mother shefa, who Fratton Mina Nari van cada minha casa de que begun hula hula iottie la la quinta de Dune.

00:16:55--> 00:16:57

Allah commanded them

00:16:58--> 00:17:23

he said hold on all together, you 90 hold on to the rope of Allah and don't be divided amongst yourselves. And remember the name of Allah upon you when you used to be enemies one to another. The Meccans they hated each other different tribes they hated each other. And Medina they hated each other that every reason that kept them divided like the people today

00:17:24--> 00:17:58

people in Pakistan they hate each other people in India they hate each other people in America hate each other people hate each other everywhere you go the Dean of allies regional Kane and it organized that situation and remember the name of Allah Ponyo when your enemies one to another, and allow brought your hearts together. And he made you brothers Miramar made you brothers and you on the brink of the Hellfire about the fall in. But Allah saved you by sending Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he taught these people how to be brothers.

00:17:59--> 00:18:43

He taught us how to be brothers. So in today's Heidi, as we mentioned, is one of those many a hadith that gives us the example of how the Prophet used to teach someone law. Why do we send them he was the best teacher. He was the best teacher. He used to teach by showing doing the action. So he was always the one who was in front. Whenever the war was taking place. He was in the middle of the hottest part of the of the battlefield. And he was showing that people his courage and his bravery, some of the law what he was saying that he used to say, and he used to do, as the companion say, God or soul or tell me something I only can ask of you. He says say I believe and then be up right?

00:18:43--> 00:19:33

Because when the Prophet said it, he meant it. And he practiced it. Where we say we say I'm a Muslim inshallah. And we don't have any hesitation in saying, We are believers in sha Allah. But are we doing everything that proves that? I believe in your mukaiyama? Are we doing everything that proves that I love my mother. Am I doing everything that proves that when the Prophet said something Salah love it was sending them. You didn't see double talk in his situation. He said it and he meant what he said and used to say what he means sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So in regards to the companions, the prophet mentioned salada send them about the Brotherhood. His statement and movement Lal

00:19:33--> 00:19:51

movement. caribou Yan, you should do Babu Baba, the believer to his brother is like a solid semen structure. They support one another. That's one of the many a hadith teaching about the Brotherhood of Allah slam. That the believers they give support to one another.

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

When he needs something, his brothers they help him to guide him to advise him

00:20:00--> 00:20:42

To support him during the good times and the bad time, he's not a fair weather friend. When things are real cold, and everything is going well, he's on the scene and his face is up in the source. But when things are going downhill, they spiraled out of control. When he looks around, he doesn't find that person at that time when he needs them. The believer towards the believer is like a solid seeming to structure and they support each other and he did his hands like this. So I love what he was sending him that was mentioned in the Quran as well. And sort of a soft when Allah described those people make jihad. He loves those people who make jihad in the United Front, collectively, and

00:20:42--> 00:21:23

no one banana tomato sauce, as if they are solid semen destruction. And every time something would happen during the course of the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his companions were they were being divided, or the Unity was compromised. The Nabhi was stepped in. And he was stopped that situation from those ahaadeeth is the statements of the law what he was sending them. And the way he used to teach method remove me mean fita Why did him withdraw homie him? What a la cliffie him come method is Jessica. Either steca Minh, who Adam de Allah who said it will just hit the baby, sir, with

00:21:24--> 00:22:08

the example of the Muslims in the love for one another. And the mercy that they have for one another between themselves. And the Jin Tunis that's displayed between them is like the example of one body. If one part of the body hurts, the rest of the body will suffer from sleeplessness and from fever. So what's going on with our Muslim brothers in China? What's going on with our Muslim brothers in Iraq, in Syria? What's going on a Muslim brother across the street from where you live in that, that's something that we cannot say, That's the problem. enough's enough. See, now granted, you do what you have the ability to do a lot doesn't burden you beyond your scope. But there is a weak ID.

00:22:09--> 00:22:51

He is not from us, the one who doesn't pay attention to our affairs is a weak ID. But the meaning of IDs is true. If you are Muslim, you have to care about the Muslims. And that's why you can't be a grass, you can't be erect. You can't be in the community ratting on people. And a lot of times these rats, these rats, they're lying. They want to get the visa for themselves. They want to get the ability to stay for themselves. So they make things up about people. We have those people throughout this country, saying that this one is extreme and that one is extreme. And this and we do all of this nonsense. You have a problem with someone. He goes on vacation, someone comes and they call the

00:22:51--> 00:22:54

authorities and then he went on vacation.

00:22:55--> 00:23:13

So problem, the Muslim is not like that. He has not like that. He's going to go to the individual and he's going to write to him and give him advice. The Prophet gave an example of his daughter Salah, love what he was saying them Fatima he said Fatima bit Dominique. Fatima is a piece of me.

00:23:14--> 00:23:16

Wherever hurts her hurts me.

00:23:17--> 00:24:00

That that my daughter and as my bent Robbie Eliana, she is a piece of me. So I need to be tolerant, your husband, you the husband, if you hurt her, you're hurting me. And that's why he said that. He said that regarding an issue, where I didn't want him to do something that Fatima was unhappy with. And it didn't make the Prophet happy as well. sallallahu it was centered. He says she is a piece of me. If you want to get married again, I don't make getting married. Holla haraam is halau for you to marry more than one woman's allow you want to do that. But you're not gonna marry his daughter while you're being married to my daughter. Prophet Mohammed wasn't against plural marriage or Oh to be

00:24:00--> 00:24:46

lad. He was against the fact that I was contemplating marrying the daughter of Abu Jahan, the enemy of Islam, how are you going to be married Abu j, his daughter and the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu. Simultaneously is the daughter of the Habib of Allah. And that's the daughter of the I do have Eliza gel is the enemy of Allah and the Malacca and the sign of meaning. So the Prophet said, I don't mean Haram. Hello, hello, hi Hara, you want to marry her? You marry her? Did you get a divorce my daughter? Because Fatuma is a piece of meat. And that's how we have to look at the situation. Those of you who are Muslims, and your family members are Muslims as well. Your

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

relationship has to be even more solid, even more solid. Those of you who your family are not Muslims. Then you have to hold on to the Muslim community, but never forget the heart of your family over

00:25:00--> 00:25:28

Before explaining this horrific whiny, there's a really important point I want to make about the teaching method of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The believer is a mirror to the believer, Russell allowed us to talk to the people based upon what they understood examples from their environment, things that are not disputed. Things that the most educated person can understand and benefit from, and the least educated can understand and benefit from.

00:25:30--> 00:26:17

And men are not men, you get the smallest kid in this question and say, come here. How is a believer? Like the mirror, why is the believer like the mirror to his Muslim brother, the little kid can come up with reasons so the Prophet used to teach Salah love while he was setting them in accordance to the understanding of the people. It is not from our religion, for us to talk about things in issues that are not speaking directly to the reality of our community. So the Hatim on Friday, he should use that time 30 minutes to address the issues of the community, our se for an example, racism in the community for an example. He should talk about gun crime, he should talk

00:26:17--> 00:26:41

about knife crime, he should talk about holding on to the Islamic identity, he should talk about Allahu Allahu Akbar, ah, all of those issues, and we can never put enough emphasis on, always repeating every week, the importance of the tawheed of Allah, and following the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Don't come here, telling us about stuff that's going on in Baghdad.

00:26:43--> 00:27:12

It doesn't, it doesn't resonate with us, the price of bread, bread, and Baghdad has nothing to do with us. And this is, in my opinion, where the selfie down the door, I'd have failed some of our communities, and that we've engaged the intellect of the people with issues that have nothing to do with our community. My mother, my father, my relatives, non Muslims, I need to be given them down in a law.

00:27:13--> 00:27:25

And our community, we have a high divorce rate, and our community, our children are going astray and leaving Islam. They're getting shot, they're shooting people, they're getting killed, they go to jail.

00:27:26--> 00:28:12

And our religion, our daughters, our daughters, they are going to the club and they're dancing, and they're doing all of that real issues. And I'm going to engage my community about Abolhassan and Nairobi law will lie. When I do that, I'm making a grave error. But Mohammed used to talk to the people about the things that were in their environment, things that they needed to understand. So a doubt to sell a fear has to be in the forefront. As it relates to the challenges that are on the table in our communities. We and our voice should be the voice that people hear when we're addressing this issue of RSP when we're addressing all of these issues back in America, Black Lives

00:28:12--> 00:28:52

Matter for an example whatever the issue happens to be, we're supposed to come to the table with a proper understanding to address the people so then it'd be mentioned Salah love what he was sending them and movement murottal movement the believer is the mirror to a believer simple at whiny. And this is from his July mal Kadam. It can be understood many ways for an example, when you stand before that mirror, and you look at that mirror, that reflection that you see in that mirror. I'm asking you guys this question. When you look in the mirror, that reflection that you see in the mirror, is he a first class citizen or a second class citizen.

00:28:54--> 00:29:01

He's a first class citizen, my man says second class citizen. He's a first class citizen because as you as you.

00:29:02--> 00:29:24

So just as you look at him as being a first class citizen, you have to look at your brother's being a first class citizen. You can look at him and say, Look at his color, his colors dark in in mind. He has hair different from mine. He comes from other than where I come from. He's a second class citizen who made him second class. In Chroma come in the light at

00:29:25--> 00:29:59

the one who has the best level from you is the one who has the most Tough luck. So that's one of the meanings of it. One of the meanings of it. Another meaning of it is what Mr. Buddha who brought this hadith in his book for a while an emammal bohart. He brought this hadith in his book, none in Sahih Bukhari but he has a book called edit and move from an edible muffler is one of the important books of an emammal Buhari is not signed Bukhari and Sahih Bukhari there is a chapter called keytab and edit the chapter

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

etiquettes not that there's another book in this book that authentic and some that are weak and abandoned came to light and he any service the book, he made one volume, all of the authentic hadith. And the other one the week. It is a very important book, very similar Turrialba sila hain. And Amanda Bukhari and Amanda Buddha, who they brought this in the book in the chapter of a nnessee ha, and see how.

00:30:31--> 00:31:08

So your brother is a mirror to You mean, and when you look in the mirror, the mirror is going to tell you a, your coffee is like this, your leg is like that, hey, you need to sort this thing out. Your fold is too long. That new thought you didn't really you didn't want it that long. But they made it long you look in that mirror, that mirror is going to tell you, yo yo, you have his bow, your brother, when he sees that he's going to do the same thing. You're going to give advice that's from the heart that the Muslim has, and his brother, he goes to him and he says, Hey, listen,

00:31:09--> 00:31:51

you know, doing your class doing your class, you should be careful about mentioning this. And you should be careful about mentioning that, because it comes across like this, and it comes across like that. Whatever the case may be, whatever the case may be, and I don't have to tell you guys about the importance of this religion, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to take the bear from people that you say that you live in LA, you know, make ship with a law, you establish the salon, and you give advice to every Muslim and the man said, okay, that says bear Pledge of Allegiance. I do not see her, I do not see her. A Dino not see her. This religion is giving good advice. The whole

00:31:51--> 00:32:28

religion is no see Hmm. So unfortunately, when it comes to the fifth of the Brotherhood of Al Islam, someone will tell you about someone else. And instead of you calling them up, to talk to them about it to ascertain Is it true, and then to advise them will tell the next person and we'll tell the next person will tell the next person is crazy. It's really insanity. We live in a situation that is insane. I mean, it's really insane. Anything we hear about someone is true. But if it was you, and people were saying any and everything about you, you will want people to say,

00:32:29--> 00:32:36

where's the proof of that? Don't believe that until you ascertain as to its validity, and so forth, and so on.

00:32:37--> 00:32:45

So that's one of the meanings of the Hadees that the brother gives advice to his brother. Now the meaning of the difficulty is,

00:32:46--> 00:32:58

when you look in that mirror, the mirror is going to tell you about the good and the bad of what it sees in you. It's going to show you the good and the bad.

00:33:01--> 00:33:39

You are a person for example, who you may be overweight for an example. And you're overweight because you overeat and you don't exercise. So it's blameworthy. Not that it's genetic, you over eat. And as a result of that, you're overweight, and you don't work out. So when you look at your situation, the mirror is going to tell you a reality, the good and bad. Wow, you look nice, that's really a nice job, you have a nice hat that you have on your shoes, and nice and so forth and so on. So the mirror is fair, and the mirror is just the mirror, it has an idol.

00:33:40--> 00:34:12

You have to be fair with people, you have to be fair with people, the Mothman as it relates to the other believers, he is fair, and he is just my friend had a problem with a brother who's not my friend. When I hear the situation, I can't be on my friend side just because he's my friend. The movement to his brother is like a mirror. He has to hear the truth. Wherever the truth falls, he's going to make his position known. And he's going to let the chips fall where they may.

00:34:14--> 00:34:19

So we can't be like those people who we just want to show the bad of people.

00:34:20--> 00:34:59

We just want to show the bad if people the mirror doesn't do that. And I'm not calling to and mawatha not here because my column here is in a context. We don't want to say Look, he you know, innovative people, people who are Teddy, Teddy, they got good. We have to look at the good. No, this is not the time to say that. The time when it comes to people of innovation, the time is to make a clear this innovation. And this innovation has to be dealt with in accordance to what needs to be done and said

00:35:00--> 00:35:14

To deal with it effectively, I'm not going to play around on that issue. So we're not talking about that. We're talking about just being fair and just with people, your enemy, as well as your friend, your friend and your fault.

00:35:16--> 00:35:41

When you look at the mirror and whiny in the mirror tells you about the noble sand, the tafsir the Nicholas, you know, is telling you about the things that are wrong. Something's not right, you had it's not right, you have links in your head, something is not right, the mirror is telling you that, when the mirror is telling you that it doesn't scream that out to you.

00:35:43--> 00:36:07

It doesn't scream that out to you. It says it very quietly, Hey, get yourself together, and go comb your hair. So when you're going to give advice to your brother, don't advise him by kicking his back out and blowing him off the scene. Because you want the guide to be guided, uh, right. The same way you want to be guided to the truth.

00:36:08--> 00:36:52

So who in his right mind is going to accept from people when you're roughing tough with them, it's just not from the fitrah people will reject the truth, if you're rough and tough and you're nasty with them. So this idea shows a whiny listen to this, listen to this. When you look at that mirror, and you look at the reflection as coming back to you, that reflection of yourself is important. It is important. Your brother is important like that as well. Your brother is important, you have to look at him like that. You have to love for him, what you love for yourself. You want to be treated a particular way, then treat that man in the way that you want to be treated. This is probably one

00:36:52--> 00:37:38

of the most difficult things that we have on the table in terms of practicing our religion, practicing our Deen, just everybody treat everybody else the way that you want to be treated. That's all it's as simple as that. You don't want him in your business, then you shouldn't mind other people's business. The holidays went on to say that the believer is the mirror to the believer. And the believer is a brother to a believer. And that's why he's a mirror because he's his brother. So by default is going to be a mirror. And he kofu Allah, he die Otto, anything of his property is going to do whatever you possibly can do to help safeguard his property, whatever he can do. So if

00:37:38--> 00:38:20

his brother leaves his lights on to the car, and he went inside, he's going to bring that to his attention. He's not going to just say, Man, I'ma Leave it. This is his problem. Or I'm shy and embarrassed about knocking on his door at this time, I don't know how he's going to take that the the motivation that the person has is now I can't let my brother be in a situation where, because of my negligence in this particular thing, it could cause him some hardship. He has a doctor's appointment tomorrow or his wife is pregnant. He didn't know he left the lights on. Now she's going to have the baby in the middle of the night, he gets up and he can't start the car up because the

00:38:20--> 00:38:47

battery is dead. And all you had to do was say a turn your car lights off. So everything concerning his property is your job and responsibility to safeguarding his situation. It case shouldn't steal from a store. And if they were to steal from the store, you got to do something about it. So it's easy, it's easy. Just take care of your brother's property. Last thing he mentioned.

00:38:49--> 00:38:58

He defends him in his absence. He defends him in his absence. You should know. Yeah, he Abdullah amatola.

00:39:00--> 00:39:09

If people talk about other people in your presence, then more than likely they talk about you as well. When you're absent.

00:39:11--> 00:39:32

You know, some of you are not married Sharla you're going to get married. And you're going to learn different things about being married. Some of the positives and the negatives. One of the negatives about getting married is being married to a lady who you have Pillow Talk, pillow talk, you know, we just be chewing a cut, you know, chopping it up with your honey.

00:39:33--> 00:39:45

Some people when they do that, and they chop it up. All they do is talk about for land and land. He did this she did that. He went over there. They got divorced. He went over there just

00:39:46--> 00:39:54

as if they don't have enough to discuss about their own family. They have more than enough lovey dovey things to say to each other.

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

It's like that situation where you should tell the person Hey, hey, hey,

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

Get a grip, get a grip on life.

00:40:03--> 00:40:05

That kind of Pillow Talk is what?

00:40:06--> 00:40:23

Talking about everybody. So if you're in the presence of someone, and is given to speak in about people in the absence, especially when it's not even needed to bring them down, not even need it. There's no religious reason to do this thing.

00:40:24--> 00:41:02

And more than likely, chances are, they speak about you as well. And we have that with the companions throughout the history of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the Muna 15 was traveling with the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they were passing the time away. And they were saying things like, Oh, we have never seen a group of people who eat more than the companions of Prophet Muhammad. We have never seen a group of people talk more than these people talk so much long tongues. We have never seen a group of people who when it's time to meet the enemy, these guys are countless and scared. One of the companions said I heard what you said.

00:41:05--> 00:41:07

And I'm gonna go and tell the Prophet what you said.

00:41:09--> 00:41:36

How are you going to say things like that we traveling in Jihad and you saying this about the people. And that man when he told the Prophet what they said some of the law he was selling, they ran to catch up Yeah, Rasul Allah in America nanohole when Allah we were just passing time we were just playing around. We were just you know, shooting the time. The Prophet was told by level title, a biller he were I to come to

00:41:37--> 00:41:45

you joking and laughing and playing about Allah, his ayat in his messenger. don't offer any excuses, you have disbelief.

00:41:46--> 00:41:50

The point here is that companion didn't allow that to be said.

00:41:52--> 00:42:30

And it wasn't looked at as being a wrapped a grass. No, that was his religious responsibility to defend the people of Ellis land. And that used to happen all the time between the companions and the people are at Juana Lai la him, cab Eva nomadic when he didn't go to the jihad. Some people started talking about him when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Where's God? Where's he at? Someone said, Yeah, Rasul Allah, He stayed back in Medina and looking at his clothes, he was really just happy with his clothes. When one of his brother's friends heard that he said, You lie, lying.

00:42:31--> 00:42:37

Something held them back yard or some I don't know what it is, but something held them back. And he defended the man.

00:42:39--> 00:42:49

So the point here is, we had that responsibility to defend any and every Muslim, when people are talking listen to honey,

00:42:50--> 00:43:33

this culture that these kids have of social media, where people comment, you know, the keyboard warriors will come in, and they don't have a lot of knowledge. And when they come in, they'll talk about people's honor. They'll talk about things that is just conjecture. They'll talk about things that they have no way of knowing. Is it true? Is it not true? They just the important thing is, I have to say something because as that guy said, I don't want mention his name. He doesn't deserve to be mentioned in our messages of famous artists, from these non Muslims while in our lifestyle. He says something true to everybody wants to 60 seconds of fame.

00:43:34--> 00:44:08

So people get that on the internet. If you're watching comments that people are making against people, the one who the comment is being made against may not be your favorite speaker may not have anything to do with you. His dour may not even be the dour that you subscribe to. But still, you got an opportunity to set the record straight. Look, this brother is not my favorite speaker. But what you're saying is Ott, because you have no proof. Why are you saying that? Why? How do you know that?

00:44:10--> 00:44:53

So that's one of the many ways that we can get benefit off of that social media where people are making accusations and statements, and they're lodging these things against people. And there's no way in the world that that person can know. Is that true or not. And many times you may even know he's just lying. I looked at a talk today I was shocked. Someone sent me a talk about the brother from Jamaica Faisal. And he was still talking that same stuff. I was shocked after all of these years. You still talking like that? You make an everybody now Muslims. You want them to be Muslims when it suits you and they're not Muslims when they don't suit you. So then buyers like Bernie,

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

everybody's Saudi Arabians everybody has a non Muslim everybody. Everybody's a non Muslim. And now

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

They become non Muslims because they're dropping bombs on Pakistan and they're dropping bombs. The American army is dropping bombs and drone missiles on Pakistan, and Afghanistan, and they're killing Muslims. And you're with the American army. So you are now Muslim, because with the American army just like that, you are now Muslim, because they are dropping bombs are Muslims in Pakistan. And in Afghanistan, wait a minute, wait a minute, but you make wholesale to fear. Right, if people don't pray, they're not Muslims. So when they drop bombs on people without praying on faith, now Muslims dropping bombs on non Muslims. And that's the problem with the Dow, the Dow is just all over the

00:45:39--> 00:46:28

place. And the point I'm making here is taking people outside of the slump and making fear of them. Because it's just the way you go through your, you know, your chain of thinking and the madness. And if we were to do that against you, we can do that with everybody living here in a non Muslim society, and getting that passport in a non Muslim society. If a person wanted to argue that is a form of conference or your cafe he can do that. But we're not going to do that because that's looking at only a part of the issue. This is one of the big problems with these people so the Finn each other whether you know him You don't know him, the finger brother, that's his hub. Okay, when

00:46:28--> 00:46:36

if you guys have any questions concerning today's data, with these four points, you can put your questions forward Barak Luffy.

00:46:39--> 00:46:40

And Linda crunchy

00:46:44--> 00:46:46

for the liban

00:47:04--> 00:48:04

CERN in the issue of combining Salatu Juma with the answer prayers it permissible, but remember that Islam have the life in this issue of life. And some of them say that it is not permissible, because Juma is not set up to vote, indicative of the fact that it's only two rakaats there's a hook but so you combine vote with acid and not Juma with an acid. So some of the enema took that position and from them as an ethnic and then other rhythm, I said, No, you can combine between vor and between Juma and Alaska. And that's because of the URL, or the reason why comm combining has been allowed. And that is to raise difficulty off of people. So right now, they do my prayers close to the eisah

00:48:04--> 00:48:52

prayer. So we want to combine for an example so that we don't have to come back to the masjid and people can get the reward of Juma and also praying, awesome MSG. Oh, it's raining or snowing or it's real cold. So you want to combine so it's an issue love if the last you read the side that those people took the side that those people took, and then you are tolerant towards the people who have the other side. In my opinion, the strongest position in chalets region is the permissibility of combining. And I would draw your attention to the book by the chef whose book we're learning right now chef ideal hedeby he has a book called Kitab calm and she taught the book of the rules of this

00:48:52--> 00:48:53

winter time.

00:48:54--> 00:49:01

And it's been translated into English. So it is definitely on the internet. It's one of those PDFs

00:49:02--> 00:49:20

you can get that in a PDF or you can buy it it's a really important book, the rules and regulations of the winter time. Things that Islam allowed us to do like we were talking about the fifth of brotherhood. The summertime has fit and the winter time has fit as well.

00:49:22--> 00:49:43
