00:00:22--> 00:00:36

All right, inshallah we're going to begin, this will handle Rahim Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah he Oberg rubbish Raha Lisa threeways celery Emery Hello Loksatta melissani Holy Robina Zina Karim.

00:00:39--> 00:00:41

Last time we talked about

00:00:43--> 00:00:52

I forgot to listen, you know, the calamities that our tongues can get into, or get us into when they are unchecked, and they are not,

00:00:53--> 00:01:37

you know kamto They're not kept properly, right. And we talked about two of that mean are fat one of them is when a person speaks, I'll Colombian Barbary. When a person speaks that which is not true, which is an inaccurate, which is vile, foul, all of these elements, which is button, any, anything that has nothing to do with health or goodness. The other part is a Sukkot and it'll help when you know that there is a matter that needs to be spoken up against. And you have the ability, you have the courage, you have the position, you have everything, right. You choose and say, You know what, it's okay. It's nice for me, my comfort, everything. I don't want anything to be touched my ever

00:01:37--> 00:02:16

good job, I've everything, I'm just going to stay quiet. And let it let it let it you know, what we'll see. Let the time take its course. And you don't speak up against injustice, or you don't speak up against that which is not healthy. And then we said in our fat, the things about Bothell, that category is going to be divided into the category of Riba and name email number one, number two is a whole radial speaking about that which you don't have knowledge of within that is obviously you're lying about Allah and His Messenger, that's the greatest form of lie. But then after that is what, which is lying in general. So we're going to talk about lying in general in sha Allah.

00:02:20--> 00:02:22

And then third category is going to be

00:02:23--> 00:02:38

slander and unnecessary fights and foul language in general. Those are all different forms of bots that we're going to tackle inshallah. Today, we're going to go into the definition of Libra. What do you think is the definition of Libra? Yes.

00:02:39--> 00:02:45

That's the translation of Libra backbiting, but good start. Well, how would you define Reba?

00:02:49--> 00:02:50

What about Pleasant

00:02:54--> 00:02:58

Okay, but what if you say pleasant things about him and he doesn't like it.

00:03:01--> 00:03:14

It's still illegal, right? So what I've done is I've actually put together a few of the definitions that our scholars have put together. So even Hijaz Kalani, you know, the one who has translated who has done the shadow house al Bukhari, right, he says

00:03:16--> 00:03:17


00:03:18--> 00:03:24

and yet, coral is Insano I even so first is you talk about somebody's faults.

00:03:25--> 00:03:45

And you talk about some something, there was no reason for you to talk about in the in the first place. You just said it, because you got to know about it. There was no reason for you to talk about that. Imam Ghazali he says hello libre. And tell the Quran a haka be Maya Crow, who, noble Allah, who

00:03:47--> 00:04:01

you say something about your brother. And let's say, you know, you say something about your brother, but now you want to also cover that evil about him. So you guys, uh, you know, yeah, you know, people are talking about this, that he is such and such, but he's not really like that.

00:04:02--> 00:04:12

Even that is considered, because now you have, you're not you're just saying, Oh, I heard so and so is like that he has this issue or that issue.

00:04:13--> 00:04:19

But then now you're trying to rectify that by another lie. But the fact that you narrated that

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

to somebody else also fell into Reba.

00:04:24--> 00:04:55

Imam nawawi and I brought scholars that everybody can agree with him. I'm nowhere he says LIBOR. This is so powerful. He says vikhroli mer be my Accra haha. The micro who who to talk about another brother with that which he would dislike. So uncanny valley GFI, budoni. Sharks. He's fat. He's short. He's tall. He's skinny. He's this. He's that. But then you talk about the physical characteristics of that in son.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

Oh, Deena, who are you talk about his religion.

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

oh this person is that he is this and all the isms that we divide ourselves into. Right oh this person is that he's Hanafi he shot very he Sufi Salafi all these isms that we divide. You talk about another brother behind their back using and a true attribute of theirs. Oh he is a Hanafi but the fact that you've mentioned that right in a manner that could hurt that brother is also considered andina he you speak about his Deen what? Dunya who you talk about his dunya Oh, you know the guy with a black Tesla.

00:05:38--> 00:05:48

These little things they're all considered because these are doors to other levers Dounia who I will never say who are you talk about his character.

00:05:49--> 00:06:06

Oh Hulka hula hula hoop physical or internal Naidu who you talk about his money. What to do who you talk about his children xojo Who you talk about even vile is he talking about somebody as his wife or somebody's wife talks about somebody else's husband

00:06:07--> 00:06:10

hardeeville Who even the servants

00:06:11--> 00:06:17

your you know this we don't have that but like if you go to Neil Paxton, ya rooskies Knock Ronnie the slogan McCarthy

00:06:19--> 00:06:28

Right? Like, you know, these are converts here with that, you know, not slow driver. Like these are statements we say day in, day out.

00:06:30--> 00:06:37

You've done two things. You've done the lever of that driver or that servant and then you've done it for the person he works for Subhan Allah

00:06:40--> 00:06:49

Oh, ha, Dima, whoa, whoa, whoo hoo. His livers. Oh, shout out. Oh, who? The person's hair. Oh, live here to the person's beard.

00:06:50--> 00:06:55

Oh, did you see he had a perfectly fine long beard. He got it.

00:06:57--> 00:06:58

All of these things.

00:06:59--> 00:07:19

Our WUSA to who which means you're all chatting. And in the lobby outside this person comes but he's a bit sad that day. So he's like salami comes along. He walks away and you'd like to see he had a frown on his face. or whoosah to who even to mention about somebody's facial expressions after they're gone

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


00:07:23--> 00:07:34

I mean all of us have you done these? Let's be honest. Like it's such a scary when you I was reading these definition. I was like man, like where do you begin? Because it's just so part and parcel of our society. We don't even think about these things anymore.

00:07:35--> 00:07:38

Well, they usually come in my Attalla OB

00:07:39--> 00:07:46

so and the carta who believes the this is the key part. Whether you said this

00:07:48--> 00:07:49

by using your words.

00:07:50--> 00:07:51

A will be a shout it

00:07:53--> 00:07:53

or you said it

00:07:57--> 00:08:04

when you point you didn't say it. And I had this case when somebody was like, you know pointing at somebody's like, Look

00:08:06--> 00:08:09

I'm like, Bro, that's not good. It's like I'm not saying anything. Sahiba

00:08:11--> 00:08:26

like it is you're pointing to somebody about somebody's eye and he understood the whole message just by your pointing it is lever Subhanallah Oh Rumsey Who are you winked at something? All of this is lever.

00:08:28--> 00:08:30

In I'm knowing He further says

00:08:31--> 00:08:42

Amin Delica kolu. Cathy or Minella Takahashi with assignees Well, Paul, that mimma you've humble Assam Euro

00:08:43--> 00:09:02

Oh ALLAH P morado. Anything that you do. That the person you are communicating with about another person? Anything text message, social media, comments, emojis, anything that you can convey

00:09:03--> 00:09:08

my echo who your brother would dislike, all of those are forms of Riba.

00:09:10--> 00:09:21

And he mentioned him I don't know if he says Subhan Allah, it says For example, sometimes how do we start the Riba? He's like, so did you hear? Allah Tala was pataca kami?

00:09:22--> 00:09:32

Imam. No, he mentioned that he said masculine. He says Allah you're happy now Allah has a module Subhan Allah MOBE tele Allah has tested this person may Allah protect us.

00:09:35--> 00:09:37

Even that is considered a lever.

00:09:39--> 00:09:48

Like you didn't say anything about the brother. But the fact that you said May Allah protect us you know, Allah is testing that brother. Even that fell under the

00:09:52--> 00:09:54

insinuation Yes, it's like a lie.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

Well Heba to

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

Dr. Soble Listen, it's a misconception that Riba is linked to only your tongue.

00:10:06--> 00:10:12

It's linked to our entire existence anything we do that we elude to another person about their

00:10:13--> 00:10:23

bad or good characteristics that they do not like being mentioned outside. All of that goes under or under this

00:10:26--> 00:10:26

the next part

00:10:28--> 00:10:29

he says,

00:10:31--> 00:10:56

for how you thought my off Hema delay, I laid my ukara who almost dabble with daddy Lee with pointing at ishara rums, lambs key taba and all other forms of communication, anything that can be understood all of that is going to fall under libre. Now there's a difference between Libra and Libra is that which is true about the brother and did your talking behind his back. Now Mima is you're making up stuff about him.

00:10:58--> 00:11:09

Those are non factual realities about your brother or your sister. And now you're spreading that about that button. That's even a bigger son, these are all Kava.

00:11:12--> 00:11:48

The next part is, I'm not going to go into the hookworm of it because we did it in detail. Those of you that have missed those lectures is like online, you can find the lectures that we did in detail about LIBOR and all of that. I think we did a whole 40 minute 20 minute session during the CME the spiritual dimensions of fasting we did like I think on the third day of the spiritual dimension or the fourth day, day three or day four you will find an entire discussion on rebirth so we're not going to go into this by consensus of all the scholars here is where I'm going not even going to shy away from saying even though I Lucia scholars by consensus there is no SD laugh about this is a

00:11:48--> 00:11:49

major sin

00:11:50--> 00:11:54

in their madhhab and all of the Alison all pharma that

00:11:55--> 00:11:56

the fourth

00:11:57--> 00:12:08

is What is Allah subhanaw taala spoken about libre in the Quran? Allah subhanaw taala he says he says, Yeah, you heard Lavina um, and then he will go through your Amina one, or you will believe

00:12:10--> 00:12:22

stay away, protect yourself, safeguard yourself, he has done evil. It's dinar basically means that you want to, to make sure that nothing of that touches you.

00:12:23--> 00:12:54

Okay, you take a corner, you know, Edge attorney boo, Cassie are Amina one, many of the thoughts that come to your mind, be careful of them. Why? Because Allah says, in about one knee, if most of those thoughts that you're getting in your head, they're a sin. They're vile, they're not true. Actually, they did studies they found that the difference between successful

00:12:55--> 00:13:01

athletes and non successful athletes is their ability to control negative thoughts.

00:13:02--> 00:13:37

So successful thought athletes, they go through mental candlelit conditioning, where they're able to suppress, I'm gonna fail, I'm gonna fail, I'm not going to be able to serve, I'm not going to be able to score I'm not going to be able to do all of those negative conditioning, sometimes those those messages that are coming, a successful athlete is able to, to be, you know, being able to suppress that. And not only that, they go through mental conditioning and training. For example, the person Michael Phelps, you know, the best swimmer, it has mentioned that he would daily spend the three hours on mental conditioning.

00:13:39--> 00:13:49

Trying to prevent his mind from even sending a single negative message. So much Oh, it has mentioned that when he would get into the swimming pool,

00:13:51--> 00:14:30

he would have mentally prepared for that swim, he would have seen himself reaching the line without any negative influence ever coming in his brain to the level that when he would get in, he would just see the shot of you know, time for you to jump in. He has headphones on and he swims and he's not even looking because he has visualized this. And his brain is not thinking twice about how this is going to take place. So negative thoughts are our electronic data says in Nevada one knee is its moon, that a lot of these things that we hear in our mind and these thoughts that are coming there are what nothing but sin.

00:14:31--> 00:14:35

Well, as I just said, Who and don't become Inspector Gadget.

00:14:36--> 00:14:49

What that does when the Quran doesn't say that, that just says don't follow jasoosi Don't follow and try to investigate. Oh, what happened? Where did this happen? How did this happen? You know Subhanallah

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

our, sadly in our Desi culture, I'm part of that. Now I'm part of that. It's not found in most Arab cultures. It's only found in the

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

See culture is Africa's ISABELI department when you meet them first time

00:15:05--> 00:15:34

you start the entire list of questions with him. Mashallah. Gargamel abco Where did you find your house? Did you move with your car? Do you move without your car? Did you drive your entire family in the car alone? Kidnap Mila kidnapper negara into how much is the car? Are you paying insurance here? Are you paying insurance there? I see your number plates still Ontario. I'm serious. These are questions I get asked on a daily basis. Every now and then somebody sees the Ontario number plate and the list of questions begins.

00:15:35--> 00:15:50

This is this is the justice Allah has forbidden that well after Justice who do not investigate other people's lives who say don't use it and two things happen. One is if that person is not a strong willed person.

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

He will lie.

00:15:53--> 00:16:03

Opposite Tokara panigrahi He wants to get rid of you. He's gonna be like Yeah, our saga like he just gonna make up some lie $100 He just wants to get rid of you because you're on his neck.

00:16:05--> 00:16:06

Right I'll give you a true example.

00:16:07--> 00:16:15

When I was in Saudi, I bought a new car. I went drove it went to the place where I was giving a lecture. And

00:16:17--> 00:16:47

so mashallah some of the sorority brothers you know, they came I'm not I'm not saying this because he's here I'm just they came and said that when a guy comes it's like you know, generally what do you say when you see a new car? Baraka Luffy Wallahi MACIF minha il Heydon all of these they have these statements inshallah you see nothing but good good from this car. May Allah make this our blessing for you so many things. That's it. Then when I moved and I went to the business center, I met my brothers from the Desi land. He said Oh, mashallah fully loaded, hurry the

00:16:48--> 00:17:11

leather seats here. It doesn't have leather seats, or Shalamov automatic seats or manual manuals, Mashallah. MashAllah Keith niggly Christo, Billy. Mitch, literally, if I'm not exaggerating, I had more than 20 questions about my car. I drove off that parking lot in my car got into a car accident. I'm serious. I'm serious.

00:17:13--> 00:17:31

You don't know who that person is? Right? I'm just talking about a general. Right. And that is a context of that. So what happens is as a culture, this digests whose culture is not a good culture for us, and we have to end us as a community, it's okay.

00:17:33--> 00:17:36

It's okay if he got the new pair of shoes. You don't need to know if he got them on sale or not.

00:17:38--> 00:18:10

You don't need to know if he got the new Apple Watch. Who gave you the new Apple Watch? Where did it come? Does it have LTE? Does it have phone doesn't have doesn't matter? Right? It's okay if I see the kids asking, right they're intrigued. But you know what I just said Sue, walla. Yeah, bow do calm Baba. And then Allah subhanaw taala says do not do what Reba to not do Reba of one another. Don't do Heba off one another. Would you like one of you to eat the meat of your own brother?

00:18:12--> 00:18:25

What duckula have Taqwa of Allah? In Allah azza wa jal, Rahim have Taqwa of Allah indeed Allah subhanaw taala is the forgiver and he's the most merciful that Allah subhanaw taala reminds us He says,

00:18:26--> 00:18:30

My Elfie lumen Olin Illa de Hira, T Boone,

00:18:31--> 00:18:38

anything that we utter from our tongues? There is a catcher who's catching that and he's writing it down for you.

00:18:39--> 00:18:41

That's one of those a hobby he saw.

00:18:43--> 00:18:51

Rasulullah sallallahu sallam was talking about the tongue. So he was shocked. He said he had a soul Allah and who do we have? Are we going to be held accountable for our tongue?

00:18:53--> 00:19:03

He said sokola amok, may your mother find you heavy? Is there anything else heavier than the tongue that will take people to hellfire?

00:19:06--> 00:19:07

Then Allah subhanaw taala says,

00:19:09--> 00:19:15

this is this is interesting, while I talk for my ladies halacha beheld, do not follow

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

what you don't need to know.

00:19:19--> 00:19:21

Do not follow that which you don't need to know a

00:19:22--> 00:19:33

little bit of details of what's the plan? What are they doing? How are they doing? What's the like, you don't need to have that knowledge focus on what you need to do and focus on that.

00:19:36--> 00:19:42

So don't chase knowledge that either you don't have knowledge about or you don't need to know those things.

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

In a summer, Allah says indeed you're hearing while Basara your eyesight. Well, four add your heart and your thoughts. Could Lou Hola, Erica. All of these things gone? I know who masuleh

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

Ah, it's already predestined that you're going to be questioned about all of these

00:20:09--> 00:20:16

Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was one sitting Aisha Radi Allahu anha. And this hadith is in Abu Dhabi with Nikita will Adam.

00:20:18--> 00:20:45

So she said, Sophia are the Allahu anha. Sophia Qaeda, al Qaeda, al Qaeda, okay that she started like describing Sofia or the Allahu anha. About her physical descriptions. She's short and all of that. For Allah rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you have said statements, if these statements were to be integrated or mixed into the C, that C would entirely become full of salt

00:20:46--> 00:20:47

or jeep.

00:20:51--> 00:21:04

Whatever she was not talking about about Sofia, she was just saying she's a short woman. I'm tall, she's short. Nothing like oh, she does not like nothing she's just physically describing. And Rasul Allah says that I'm got so upset on that.

00:21:12--> 00:21:44

Then Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he went on his role Miraj, he saw Masha hit, he saw a lot of scenes. One of the scenes that is mentioned in the long Hadith, I'm not going to read the Hadith, but just summary of that. He saw people that had nails of brass. They had nails off what? Brass? Right very harsh and strong metal. They had nails of brass. And all they were doing is they were taking those nails and they were scratching their faces and their chests with it until their bones would show.

00:21:47--> 00:22:04

And then Allah subhanaw taala would repair them back and they would grow back those nails and they would scratch their faces and their chests until they would no have no meat left. And then Allah would grow the meat back again and they would get the nails back again and they would keep doing that and that was This is a perpetual, never ending state that they were in.

00:22:06--> 00:22:08

So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:22:10--> 00:22:11

He says

00:22:13--> 00:22:28

for coltman Ha Allah Gibreel Who are these people? Gibreel Ali salaam, Allah Allah levena Yakko Luna luminous these are the people that used to eat the meat of other people are either used to backpack

00:22:29--> 00:22:36

while your car owner feet around the hem and they used to talk about the honor of other individuals

00:22:38--> 00:22:44

Subhan Allah may Allah protect us from this is not a there's not a Oh yeah, it's just it's just libre

00:22:47--> 00:22:54

and Abu Huraira throughout the Allahu Anhu called Cardozo Law, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam al Muslim, a whole Muslim.

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

If there's one Hadith that we need to learn as a community, this is it. As long as the brother coming in this masjid or a sister coming in this Masjid says La Ilaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, none of us have a right to talk about them, how they are, what they are, what they're wearing, how they are, what is the level of their religiosity, their Deen, none of us. It doesn't matter how religious you are, or how least religious you are. We don't have a right to talk about or to judge or to evaluate or do any of that.

00:23:24--> 00:23:27

Why? Because I'll Muslim, a whole Muslim

00:23:29--> 00:23:30

Liahona who?

00:23:31--> 00:23:35

You're not dishonest to him. You don't do Kiana to him.

00:23:36--> 00:23:46

Right? You know what piano is? When when the sorority brother did Monday and didn't invite me. That's the piano. I've been waiting for the moment you're in the modulus.

00:23:47--> 00:24:07

It was waiting for the moment you're in the match. Listen, I had to say that. So he has promised me to dig we're gonna do a Monday pit outside. So everybody listened. I promise hold on to promise there's you know, eidl adhaar is coming Yaffe Annie, lots of media and we we have to look at his his beard. He's going like Allahu Akbar. Bismillah

00:24:10--> 00:24:13

No, no, he has to invite the entire community why you alone?

00:24:17--> 00:24:33

Insha Allah. No, no, but he said he'll we'll make something outside you know, and then we can Inshallah, do that as a community. Inshallah. So Jana is what when somebody is a Muslim, he's here in the masjid as a Muslim Fianna is what

00:24:34--> 00:24:59

that when we start questioning, poking asking and you're not you're not accepting the fact that this person is your Muslim brother. Everybody could be on a different path of their religiosity. We could be different at different levels. But he doesn't give us the right to do that. Well, I UK people who don't lie about him or to him, Well, I know who do not disgrace him

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

In front or do not disgrace say things disgraceful about him at the back when he's not there

00:25:11--> 00:25:14

go lol Muslim he Hallel Muslim is haram.

00:25:16--> 00:25:23

Your other brother is just like you don't want to drink alcohol. You don't want to drink. You don't want to eat meat from Burger King.

00:25:24--> 00:25:43

It's all haram. Similarly, your other brother, talking about him in any form is haram for you. It's a greater haram than you. It's you rather eat the meat outside. from Burger King that's less of a sin, then you speak about your brothers in the community. That's a bigger sin.

00:25:48--> 00:26:03

worriedly and you talk about his honor. Or do you see that? Did you see his son how he behaves? Did you see how his daughter behaves? I saw his son doing this daughter doing this. This is common that the young kids are telling me this.

00:26:04--> 00:26:09

When I had the session, I said raise hands if you are if you and all of them raised hands on this.

00:26:10--> 00:26:16

That the parents are talking about their like other parents talking about the kids, other parents kids. You can't do that.

00:26:17--> 00:26:27

If Allah exposed you to that if you are outside in a mall and you saw some other sister's daughter, understand the fact that Allah is the One who is capable

00:26:28--> 00:26:38

of taking your son and daughter and placing them in that position and taking this daughter out and putting her in the position of fire and obedience. Be thankful to Allah

00:26:39--> 00:26:55

and Citadel cover and conceal that sister or that Brother, don't talk about it. Don't make it part of your gossip don't make it part of your culture to talk about other kids and how they are not they are specifically the sisters. I've gotten a lot of complaints about that.

00:26:56--> 00:27:02

character assassination of one sister or another this has become like a normal thing. We can do that.

00:27:03--> 00:27:07

Then Allah says the province of Selim says then you cannot speak about

00:27:09--> 00:27:15

his Taqwa. You can't talk about how much that boy he has Mashallah. Don't talk about that.

00:27:18--> 00:27:32

And also be careful that the Quran Yeah, there are a ha whole Muslim that you find him you belittle him all and this guy he only prays, you know, faculty doesn't do some

00:27:35--> 00:27:35

kind of Muslim

00:27:37--> 00:27:41

in your mind. He talked to others. All of these things.

00:27:42--> 00:27:55

Staying for Asia? Beautiful recitation May Allah bless you came out we really enjoyed after a while. What style is this?

00:28:06--> 00:28:26

And at Hamdulillah we have a number of programs. For example, on the weekend, we do, Muslim Institute, we have a Quran school Muslim Institute. We also would hamdulillah have Behati seminary Aloha the seminary is the first Seminary of its kind in Missouri or I should say, at least in Kansas City, where I've taken on a full time

In fact, they are more busy than I am, and I have some ideas and they have more ideas and they take it and they want him to do that very active community as you all are well aware.

00:32:14--> 00:32:21

I want to remind you, that Masuda Allah alayhi salatu salam encouraged us towards Salah cots

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

and he made it easy for us, some of us are able are more able to do sadaqa than others. He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said,

00:32:33--> 00:32:36

above the authority of Abu Dhabi Allah to Allah and who could

00:32:37--> 00:32:42

mean a nurse yeah Allah He sadhaka Kala, Yeoman, Tata water fish shrimps, every Salama

00:32:44--> 00:32:54

and I have said that this is the most sun, right your joints, the joints in your body, you have to give sadaqa for some say the bones in your body. So every

00:32:55--> 00:33:38

joint or bone in your body you have to give us a lot before Kula Yeoman total Ephesians every day that the sun rises. So then he gave you a number of opportunities to give some a he Alia salatu salam said to Abdullah BNF Nene sadaqa if you rectify between two people you reconcile between two people it's a charity for you. Which will be not Rajan feed that better he for me to who Allah alter Fowler who Allah Matera Hosoda you help a man get on his right. Will you take his luggage and you put it in on his ride? Of course our rights today are sejarah it's our cars. So you have a man in his car. And if he's unable to do or you have a man out of his car

00:33:39--> 00:33:44

or you put his luggage for him or his belongings in his car for him that is a setup for you. He then said

00:33:45--> 00:34:18

Well can you move to Eber to sadhaka a good word is a charity. What we call a hot button term she has in a solitary sadhaka every step that you take to the masjid is a charity of course we drive to the masjid. So every revolution that the tire makes is a sadhaka you have four tires and hamdulillah That's like having four legs. Can you imagine when I show everyone you get a charity for it. He then said to me it will ever unapologetically sadaqa if you remove harm from the road, it is a charity for you.

00:34:19--> 00:34:21

Our masjid and Juma

00:34:22--> 00:34:26

fills, the parking lot is jam packed.

00:34:28--> 00:34:37

And Alhamdulillah after begging and pleading and begging and pleading people to come to the second drummer, or to come a little early for the first drummer.

00:34:39--> 00:34:43

We haven't been successful. But let's shed fills every drummer

00:34:44--> 00:34:46

and the parking lot fills every July.

00:34:48--> 00:34:59

And unfortunately, the neighbors complain as usual right neighbors are complaining about how we're parking and we're trying our best but to no avail. I've even shortened the hook but

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

for 15 minutes, just to get the first batch out, so that I can get the second batch in.

00:35:08--> 00:35:16

I'm considering shortening it to 10 minutes now. That's how bad it is people are parking their trucks truck, their parking given side of the highway.

00:35:17--> 00:35:32

And walking from the highway to the message yummy. The main highway and msgid are very close together. But even that bet and no there is no amount of begging and pleading that we can do. So we purchased the land next to our masjid for $80,000.

00:35:34--> 00:35:41

And at hamdulillah we're seeking $350,000 to develop it. The good thing is

00:35:42--> 00:36:11

all of the work are most of the work. I would say about 90% of the work is done in house. Very little do we contract outside. So we buy the materials and our brothers, most of them volunteer their time or they take small pay to build the message and this these people will this message they maximize every space and they amaze me. They've turned the old woman's masala into a full fledged kitchen. They're going to serve food out of it. They call it salaam hut.

00:36:13--> 00:36:22

They are going to make a library on the top. I don't need their space on the top so they're going to make a library out of it. My brother he's an engineer, he already designed the whole library how it's supposed to look.

00:36:24--> 00:36:35

And Hamdulillah we have six classrooms downstairs. And we use that for our current school and Arabic school and the community is working very hard at Hamdulillah.

00:36:37--> 00:36:53

Furthermore, I want to remind you of the rustle sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as statement upon the authority of Abu Bakr Al Rifai. He said, Call to ya rasool Allah Allah. I said O messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a young family of body

00:36:55--> 00:36:57

which deeds are better

00:36:59--> 00:37:08

called Eman OB LA was Jihad visability Rasul Allah Alayhi Salatu. Salam said to believe in Allah and to struggle in his path

00:37:10--> 00:37:53

call to a record of boredom. He then said, which slaves are better meaning slaves to free. He means what slaves to free, which ones are the best ones to free. He Ali salatu salam said and fursona in the nd her work through her feminine those that are most beneficial to their owners, those that are the most premium slaves and those who have the higher price. So you find that slave who was most beneficial to their masters, and they have the highest price to pay and you pay that high price and you free that slave.

00:37:55--> 00:38:04

The Ali who salatu salam said for inland This is Robbie Allah Tala unresearched for inland if I would if I can't do that.

00:38:06--> 00:38:10

He said sorry no saw anyone Oh test now

00:38:11--> 00:38:18

which means you help somebody who's an employee, you help somebody commit to a task.

00:38:19--> 00:38:25

Help them in that or you earn on behalf of a handicapped person

00:38:26--> 00:38:44

earn on the behalf of a handicapped isn't that amazing? He needs a little sometimes that you help somebody out in their work, or you earn on the behalf of a handicapped person to earn wealth on their behalf. Allahu Akbar, Dean tell us everything. He then Allah in salatu salam said,

00:38:45--> 00:38:49

after the statement of unbeliever or at least to our man.

00:38:50--> 00:39:03

He then said what if I can't commit to certain level of actions? He said to Khufu Sharika and fondness for inner her sadaqa to Minca RnF sake at least

00:39:04--> 00:39:07

hold back your harms from people.

00:39:09--> 00:39:13

Because that is a sadhaka. From you, upon yourself.

00:39:14--> 00:39:19

You gave sadaqa to yourself by keeping your harms from people.

00:39:21--> 00:39:22

Allahu Akbar.

00:39:23--> 00:39:24


00:39:25--> 00:39:31

we have tried in our community seem to remove the harm of Juma from our neighborhood.

00:39:33--> 00:39:44

We have tried, we have begged, we have pleaded, we've encouraged we've discouraged we've threatened we've done all we could to withhold our harm from our neighbors.

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

And we have failed.

00:39:47--> 00:39:49

We're asking your help

00:39:50--> 00:39:53

is a different scene from iron and Keifa.

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

Guess what? Manaphy we are not able to do so. So we need your help.

00:40:00--> 00:40:07

After Allah has helped to fulfill this funnel to remove harm from the neighbors, you all know the woman.

00:40:08--> 00:40:13

She had a lot of Southern and a lot of family, she's going to hell.

00:40:14--> 00:40:19

The Sahaba asked, how was that? Yeah, that's what Allah she he denied and salatu salam said

00:40:21--> 00:40:23

he Allah tatman da Ba,

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

la salatu salam she's intent fully harming her neighbors. That's her neighbors. What about the neighbors in the masjid the neighbors to the masjid literally, when you see this here, you'll see people live right here next to the land that we purchased. People live all up and down the street.

00:40:43--> 00:40:51

And unfortunately, we cannot stop warming them unless we fix this problem with your help, but Hamdulillah we purchased a lot, we just need your help.

00:40:52--> 00:41:10

And hamdulillah was originally seeking 500 per family. But I'm asking you pull a little deeper, dig a little deeper if you can commit $1,000 Each of you $1,000 That would help me a lot and help our community immensely. Alhamdulillah

00:41:11--> 00:41:38

so then, just raise your hand if you can do 1000 or something 1000 And hopefully each of you if you can't 200 100 Whatever you can do, I can swipe your cards over there at the table we can meet at the table to sha Allah and may allows you to keep us safe and secure. May Allah azza wa jal return the wealth of those who spend Allah Martha Moon FICON Khalifa Oh ALLAH replace the wealth of those who spent was ALLAH Lawson, Nevada ala Nabina Muhammad in either early he was heavy.

00:41:40--> 00:41:40

It was I couldn't
