Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:00:03 --> 00:00:11

Smilla Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah he Obradoiro Beshara Elisa threeway Siddeley Emery. Well hello looked at me listening of Kahakai

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

Robina. Zina alemannia Karim Robina Zina Almunia Karim, Aloha Manchu Ralina Rama taco in short Allina Hikmah taka de Janeiro liberally kromm, Allahu Manchu Riley. Naramata CommInsure Irina clickmeter Korea they're generally really Crom

00:00:27 --> 00:01:06

we are going through the Mbah the epidemic of backbiting within our community of Riba and we are on the fifth chapter about fat to listen so the entire conversation is about the calamities that our listen our tongues put us in, in front of Allah subhanaw taala we may say things as Prophet sallallahu sallam said that you know a person may be this close to Jenna, to Maya Kulu Kalimantan, he says a statement lie you will kill ahava, and he doesn't care about it. He just says it, just an arrow that gets shot.

00:01:08 --> 00:01:11

And he is thrown into a descent of hellfire because of that.

00:01:12 --> 00:01:50

So our fifth sixth chapter was that as Bob Alba isolated Riba, what provokes us as human beings to actually get involved or indulged in the act of Riba? So first thing is, we said last time is that it is it is an attempt of a weak soul trying to win over the other soul. I'm not able to battle you, I'm not able to confront you, I feel weakness, my position is low, whatever, there is some knocks there is some defect there is some in my mind, I am not up there. So I am trying to rectify that

00:01:53 --> 00:02:00

gap that I have, and make myself feel good by actually getting involved in some form of libre. The second thing we said is

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

that I have some form of hatred, justified or non justified, I have some hatred towards another person and that hatred pushes me to say things about that person that I shouldn't be saying.

00:02:14 --> 00:02:34

Number three is refer to knifes a person wants to be elevated so he feels that he isn't doesn't have the right calm and he wants to go and tell somebody's like listen, I have some special information for you about this special person that you think is a great friend of yours. And I'm going to tell you this news Wallahi you will never befriend that person.

00:02:36 --> 00:02:48

What happened your value in the eyes of that person went up refer to knifes you felt Archaea about mashallah you deserve now in an extra video any right you know extra doubt for you Subhan Allah

00:02:50 --> 00:02:57

number four is Mo optiv al Julius ours have sometimes we hang around company that we shouldn't be hanging around with

00:02:59 --> 00:03:04

our company, our friends are certain circles

00:03:05 --> 00:03:21

we had no intention of committing diva but I am in this company and this person is saying this great things and this person is saying all of this is sin. So you feel like a pressure and you're like oh man, I need to like up the ante like I want to present something that something good.

00:03:23 --> 00:03:31

And then you start talking about some other person in the libre. So those are the things and number five we said is it hard or die job.

00:03:32 --> 00:03:41

So you see somebody committing sin. And out of that job out of this is strange meant we say, man, have you ever seen somebody who comes to the masjid and does these things?

00:03:43 --> 00:03:52

In reality, you are showing that how can somebody praying who comes to the masjid commit this sin, but in the fact that you said that you've also committed Liba for that brother.

00:03:55 --> 00:04:07

Then the next part, which are which is the focus for today, and I'm going to dwell on that this is a suburb of sadness. The sixth reason why people commit

00:04:09 --> 00:04:21

Riba and this is the one that is I would say, I will Malika and this is the one that may destroy all of us. If we're not careful, is a Soria will is

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

to mock and make us make fun of someone we doing riba but the purpose of Rebbe is that we want to mock somebody you want to do is desert of someone.

00:04:40 --> 00:04:46

And this one is serious because of multiple reasons, but the main one is that

00:04:47 --> 00:04:53

the ayat in this help are just so scary that we should be very careful about

00:04:54 --> 00:04:55

mocking somebody.

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

In the Quran, the word is the Xiao was so Korea is used as motor

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

If it's used as

00:05:03 --> 00:05:04


00:05:05 --> 00:05:09

but sometimes if if both come in the same either

00:05:11 --> 00:05:25

right so if they're separated in Ayat throughout the Quran to is the that is mentioned once in Sofia as mentioned once their meaning Myrna whom You have sent me on the meaning becomes one but if they come in the same IR together

00:05:26 --> 00:05:45

that Allah intends to different things, but if that stem artefill is if that are called man Okay then Allah subhanaw taala Hitachi in specific so Huria anesthesia what is the biggest difference? So Korea and Arabic language is when you mark somebody with the tongue and physical action

00:05:47 --> 00:05:58

it's not just you said something, but you drew something or you did something with your limbs to mark the other person in behind his back.

00:05:59 --> 00:06:07

The second is the Huizar is when you said something just through the tongue you said some statement but you didn't do anything with your hands.

00:06:08 --> 00:06:12

Allah subhanaw taala says in Surah Teresa right yeah, you have Lavina Amen Oh

00:06:14 --> 00:06:15

or you who believe

00:06:16 --> 00:06:19

law yes her Oh mon min Amin

00:06:21 --> 00:06:23

is it is very important for us to understand.

00:06:24 --> 00:06:27

Let not mark a group

00:06:28 --> 00:06:30

with from another group.

00:06:32 --> 00:06:33

The word tone

00:06:34 --> 00:07:18

is very essential which means that the word comb is Arabic language they say that a frodan HTML will be heard in white. For example, we will be considered our own our E we're all account why? Because we all came to the salata Al Maghrib we were Musa leaves of this masjid so this would be a calm the sisters that are sitting upstairs would be a calm regional home so what unites us is we're all men would unites them as all men, what unites all of us the sisters and men combined are all in the house of Allah. There are different levels in which we are all a qualm. So Allah is saying that let not one a few a group mark another group. Why is that?

00:07:19 --> 00:07:21

So you're gonna hit a minimum

00:07:22 --> 00:07:24

we may think oh, okay, those people

00:07:26 --> 00:07:30

they're not up to too good. They're not really good Muslims.

00:07:32 --> 00:07:34

Allah is saying there may be a possibility

00:07:36 --> 00:07:40

that if you're intending to mock another person, they are better than you.

00:07:42 --> 00:08:03

Well Anissa now Allah specifically specifies the woman neither a group of women from another group of women are you gonna hire I'm gonna hire a minion when I tell me Sue and fossa come while I attend bazoo Bill Cobb Don't Don't mock each other with LACOB

00:08:04 --> 00:08:34

USA USA. This guy is hacked. This is this that you know we say that like these Elcom that we sometimes throw like Subhanallah when I was preparing for this this session you know in I don't know if this happens in India but like in pocket any Pakistanis here we're a minority you're Pakistani Mashallah. Mashallah. We will accept you brother. I'll accept you I'm not sure if the Pakistani government is going to accept you but we will accept you inshallah. Nowadays have problem accepting their own Pakistanis

00:08:35 --> 00:09:13

any vaccinees here? Oh, yeah. I Shala you know, the word shoulder Mela. Right. Right. So, Abigail Hayward, shoulder Mela. Like in India so we said like, everything that Shediac considers to be like other haram like mocking Ziebarth and stuff in our Pakistani culture Punjabi culture and so is it Oh, Sean Mila is just just just chilling, bro. Take it easy. It's just we're just walking one another Subhan Allah. Right shoulder Mila, like the deen of Allah has become what? Told mela okay, it's okay, if we do leave a quiver.

00:09:15 --> 00:09:37

And we're gonna come to that. So Allah is saying that and do not call each other I'll carb the word CARB is that low carb or E the person doesn't have this name. But you look at one attribute of that person you exacerbate that attribute you profound you make that the primary characteristic of that individual and then you call that individual with that attribute.

00:09:40 --> 00:09:42

And that attribute does not make that person happy.

00:09:43 --> 00:09:44


00:09:45 --> 00:09:48

If somebody calls me you know, the Imam or the Ferrari owner, I would love it.

00:09:50 --> 00:10:00

I don't mind that attribute at all right. So there are certain attributes and languages you know, I would love the Imam with the best sandal perfume. Somebody knows that

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

A joke here the man with the best handle perfume right? Soon inshallah Ahmed rise laughing you get the joke.

00:10:09 --> 00:10:44

So Allah subhanaw taala says after a bit silly small for su casa del Eman How wretched names are these after you have become Muslims and you have a you have you have you had Iman while Melania tube and if we don't walk away and turn away from this path of ours, but hula Iike homos volley Moon these are the true transgressors. May Allah truly grant us the ability to practice this because every single one of us including ourselves, including myself, right, we come at situations where your emotions take the best of you and stuff and Allah knows that we're going to fall.

00:10:46 --> 00:10:50

Allah did not make you perfect did not make me perfect did not make any one of us perfect.

00:10:52 --> 00:11:05

But when we fall, these ayat are reminders for us. So we wake up and resending at least for at least until the next Quran character class at least then then Allah subhanaw taala says after

00:11:06 --> 00:11:07

another one

00:11:09 --> 00:11:12

in the livina where the other goes

00:11:16 --> 00:11:28

yeah, in Alladhina Adjara Morgana Amina Lavina How can one either model Ruby him yet the Hama don't forget to Hamas, right. They used to like wink, look at this guy.

00:11:29 --> 00:11:32

Look at these Muslims. Look at these practicing people.

00:11:34 --> 00:12:15

Look at those, you know, people with beards. Look at this, like we mark different attributes of a person. We and sometimes it's our wink that we do that leads to that so Korea, right? Then Allah subhanaw taala not only that mentions in the Quran, the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a hadith. Again, a hadith about this are so many numerous a number that if we sit here and start talking about every Hadees, one by one by one will probably be here for quite a long time. But in the short in the shortage of time, I wanted to talk about two things. The most common type of Soria mockery that happens in Riba

00:12:16 --> 00:12:21

and this is something that is detrimental for every person's Eman.

00:12:22 --> 00:12:37

And this may lead and I don't use this word very often, but if we're not careful, this may lead a person to prefer this type of Sofia. Okay, may Allah protect us with this, which is that

00:12:39 --> 00:12:44

a person holds an opinion about something or they follow a practice and opinion that they're accustomed to.

00:12:46 --> 00:12:49

And they come across somebody else that has a different opinion.

00:12:50 --> 00:12:55

They come across a person that has a completely opposite polar opposite opinion about this issue.

00:12:56 --> 00:13:00

In that particular and both opinions are from Sharia.

00:13:01 --> 00:13:04

Both opinions are actually laugh. Simple example niqab.

00:13:06 --> 00:13:26

The Sahaba even Abbas even Massoud could not agree on it. Two of the most knowledgeable people about the Quran both Rasul Allah has given a shahada of the realm about the Quran could not agree on it. One said, niqab is wajib. And other said anybody who says niqab advisor is making a mistake

00:13:27 --> 00:13:31

and they're too so Hobbes if you read back, they could not agree on this issue.

00:13:32 --> 00:13:36

So, you have to have a person who believes that niqab is wajib.

00:13:37 --> 00:13:40

And he sees another brother who does not believe in His wife is not doing the club

00:13:42 --> 00:13:56

to make a mockery of that animal of hers or allowance of the husband for that that would leave a person leader person to suffer because you have marked a valid opinion of Islam.

00:13:58 --> 00:14:11

And we do this left right and center. All you need to do is open your local WhatsApp not the masjid but any Whatsapp group in which people are yeah haram This is halal this like you don't even know that there is a variance of opinion on that.

00:14:13 --> 00:14:14

You may not be even aware of that.

00:14:15 --> 00:14:33

But to hold my opinion at such an especially things that are motormouth. Now if somebody says there are six Allah's and we all believe that there are five then that's not so clear. That's like that person is wrong. But you mark because you think my opinion is superior than that person.

00:14:35 --> 00:14:59

And you look down upon that opinion in that is the Tsar, first and foremost So Korea with Allah Subhana Allah because he is the one that gave that allowance in the first place in Sharia. There are ayat in Quran Dara Kataria to Delilah they are definitive in their interpretation ie nobody can interpret them other than the way Allah intended.

00:15:02 --> 00:15:29

But Allah allowed other ayat that says the Mufasa don't detain, they tell you they are Vania to della which means that they are based on a conjecture their evidentiary opinions are based on permissibility of multiplicity of opinions in that in those type of versus if we hold a position and we make the other person's position and remarked the other person's position

00:15:32 --> 00:15:46

sometimes out of ignorance, sometimes out of ignorance, we may not know that the other person's opinion is also valid opinion. Right. But if we mock that opinion not knowing that or we mock the opinion after knowing that

00:15:47 --> 00:15:51

right then that could lead a person to like immediate COFA

00:15:54 --> 00:15:59

and as the moment of honey he says that, you know, a person will have to repeat his shahada

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

if if that knowledge is made evident to him that you have committed covered and he'll have to reenter Islam

00:16:07 --> 00:16:11

is not a small thing when we mock somebody's practice of the

00:16:13 --> 00:16:21

right somebody other practice of the, the differences are there as a Rama for us. And where we saw the blessing of this Rama was during COVID.

00:16:23 --> 00:16:37

During COVID, when we were only allowed to pray 10 People in the masjid or 15 people in the masjid, where did we see the Rama? We saw the retina of the Juma prayers and the variance of the opinions that exist in the gematria because the Imam ACMA debelle humble allowed us to pray Juma

00:16:39 --> 00:16:40

before Zohar, Salah

00:16:42 --> 00:16:45

right, Imam Malik allowed us to pray Juma until Maghrib.

00:16:46 --> 00:16:52

The bigger centers in Canada for example, we were only allowed 10 people in the entire building

00:16:53 --> 00:16:54

because of COVID regulations.

00:16:56 --> 00:16:57

At one read

00:16:59 --> 00:17:00

literally one Imam

00:17:02 --> 00:17:11

led every 10 minutes eats Allah for seven hours. And we had 17 Imams leading in the masjid at the same time

00:17:13 --> 00:17:14

to accommodate the OMA

00:17:16 --> 00:17:34

at the Jumeirah we had we cordoned off the building and we started Juma at not 130 We took the opinion of Imam Ahmed and we started the drama at 1030. And every 15 minutes 1010 1010 1010 10 until an hour before so

00:17:37 --> 00:17:43

that same marking that we did now because Allah put us in a situation became the Rama for us, and we all witnessed it.

00:17:46 --> 00:17:57

So Allah has given us these allowances not to do so especially when we talk about this mockery of our deen in the HYb it becomes even a bigger sin

00:17:58 --> 00:18:01

you're doing riba with a state with statements of Kofa

00:18:03 --> 00:18:47

May Allah protect us from that? Right? So speaking on the deen of Allah is not something you know, we should just take very lightly or Oh yeah, it's okay. It's only the only a matter of Allah right? Then Rasul allah sallallahu sallam. So this is the sixth reason why because we want to bring somebody down the bar, or we want to bring somebody down because we feel for some odd reason, whatever the reason may be justified or unjustified. We feel that that person has to be brought down somehow. It is mentioned by Aisha Radi Allahu anha that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hookey Atlin Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Raju and for Karla Maya Sydney and Rokita Raju la noir

00:18:47 --> 00:18:50

Angelica waka Pakala to rasool Allah

00:18:52 --> 00:19:10

in a Sofia Tim Imran and so Rasulullah sallallahu sallam was sitting and a story was mentioned. And the person is like oh this this this this that that. So this person comes to prophets SLM and starts talking about somebody and starts talking about a woman Sophia.

00:19:11 --> 00:19:20

Getting Ahead Danny, a Sierra is Sofia is shorty Moti. You know sometimes he says this guy's small this guy's chubby this guy like these statements.

00:19:23 --> 00:19:35

So and when in the statement, I show you Allah when he was not saying sorry hon musi jet Kalama has any, you know, not really explicit. It was like implied meaning.

00:19:36 --> 00:19:40

But Allah, La Casa de Qulity Kalimantan

00:19:41 --> 00:19:44

provinces Salam said to Aisha Radi Allahu Allah, you have said

00:19:47 --> 00:19:49

statements about Sofia

00:19:50 --> 00:19:53

lo musi jet Bhima in a hurry.

00:19:55 --> 00:19:59

If these statements were to be mixed, the taste of these statements were

00:20:00 --> 00:20:03

or to be fixed with the oceans of this earth.

00:20:04 --> 00:20:06

The entire oceans in its taste will change

00:20:13 --> 00:20:14

Allah protect us.

00:20:15 --> 00:20:33

Then Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam In another Hadith he says led to HERSA do while Tana Joshu Walla Walla Tada baru that do not and we've said this hadith before that don't get jealous with one another don't have anger for one another don't have hatred with one another.

00:20:35 --> 00:20:53

All of this because it leads us to nothing good. Leads nothing it leads us to nothing good. Why? Because Rasulullah sallallahu sent me he said in the end, while Coonoor IVA de la he wanna live like with one another like brothers, for the sake of Allah.

00:20:55 --> 00:21:15

I will most Muslim a whole Muslim Muslim is the brother of a Muslim. Law el de Lima who we don't transgress upon our own brothers. Wala who Zulu we don't disgrace one another. While you're here. Oh, who? And we don't do if there are we don't look down upon one another.

00:21:16 --> 00:21:27

A Taqwa. Hona. De quoi is right here. And that's where it is with the Los Altos LM pointed towards and there are numerous stories that have been mentioned

00:21:28 --> 00:21:29

about this

00:21:36 --> 00:21:42

but I wanted to talk about some of the effects of Seoul Korea that happens to in our hearts number one and I'll end with this.

00:21:45 --> 00:21:50

with South Korea, what happens is we we spread animosity within ourselves

00:21:52 --> 00:22:00

as the Allama as Imam Ozar used to say that duck Kotaro Urawa beetle HTMI here,

00:22:01 --> 00:22:03

we all have a connection between us

00:22:04 --> 00:22:17

I have a relation with you and you and you know we all have a relationship. But when we mock one another the Rouhani the Rowhani the spiritual existence of this masjid or any other Masjid gets disconnected

00:22:20 --> 00:22:30

with the element of mockery, whether it is done with good intention or bad it doesn't matter intentions do not matter here the act itself is not acceptable.

00:22:33 --> 00:22:37

Second, it soars the seed of animosity.

00:22:39 --> 00:22:45

It leads it's SOS the seed of animosity and there are people who are experts in watering those seeds

00:22:50 --> 00:22:56

number three totally do Raha but Bill intercom every person is trying to take revenge from one another

00:22:58 --> 00:23:04

I want revenge from you you want revenge like we are all because the entire conversation in our mind switches

00:23:06 --> 00:23:08

because of what little bit of mockery

00:23:09 --> 00:23:12

and that to me libre like in absence of the brother or sister

00:23:15 --> 00:23:21

number six number four in Daraa Elisa in Build Mode minima rajai Lee him.

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

Sadly, the harm of this mockery is not that you've also caused dissent within the community.

00:23:31 --> 00:23:47

But it's also the harm that comes to you after that, your mental state of mind your Eman state of mind, your the state of your image and the state of your connection in Salah every single existence every single morsel every single ounce every single cell of yours your entire existence get affected with this

00:23:52 --> 00:24:15

number three. Number five. Lia Al Hasan at yo multi ama we put all this effort to come to the masjid we put all this effort to please Allah subhanaw taala we put all of this app effort and then with one message of ours with one voice note of ours with one comment of ours with one foreword of ours.

00:24:17 --> 00:24:21

The entire has hundreds of hours are Lea wasted.

00:24:22 --> 00:24:22

They're all gone

00:24:30 --> 00:24:46

and that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala he says and the hola enough's enough Sonia has rotta Allah Amma forgot to Fijian Billa are in control. Amina Saffy. The person is going to say on that J pseudotumor. The coolness yeah Hassan

00:24:47 --> 00:24:49

whoa you know that they have surah.

00:24:51 --> 00:24:56

In the Arabic language Allah uses the word Hazara and ADAMA, there's a difference in the Dharma.

00:24:58 --> 00:24:59

You have a hope that you can

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

recover from the mistake of yours. Nadeem to Allah che, that I have a hope now I can I am remorseful but there is possibility for me to make a recovery

00:25:13 --> 00:25:18

hestra is I am remorseful and it is impossible to make a recovery

00:25:21 --> 00:25:48

we cannot recover from this. We can feel all the remorse we warn want but the doors of recovery Allah subhanaw taala has closed on us. So over here the person tells you that let's not be from those that on that day the person says yeah Serrata Allama forgot to feed Jim biller. All that remorse on to me, for all the transgressions that I have done in the house of Allah subhanaw.

00:25:51 --> 00:25:58

May Allah subhanaw taala grant us, you know, the TOEFL to practice, what we, what we

00:25:59 --> 00:26:08

what we study and read. Because truly I think, as a community as an ummah, we really have bigger fish to fry.

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


00:26:12 --> 00:26:29

we have much bigger issues that we need to address as a community and if we keep dragging ourselves into little things, and little as brother Teddy falso mentioned in the hotbar last time, right that those things are going to happen as part of a community. That's what Allah subhanaw taala he says, or Jalna Allah calmly Vardan

00:26:30 --> 00:26:31

What did he say?

00:26:32 --> 00:26:33


00:26:34 --> 00:26:40

We have made some for others a test. But then what's the question Allah asked after that?

00:26:42 --> 00:26:43

The question he asked.

00:26:46 --> 00:26:47

They'll be rude.

00:26:48 --> 00:26:49

Are you going to be patient?

00:26:51 --> 00:26:57

Will you be patient about it? Would you stay quiet patiently about these things?

00:26:59 --> 00:27:13

He has said that you were going to be tested. You will be tested by me he will be tested by Him you will be tested by me. Right? Some will be tested like Allah is gonna test us from every single one of us. The fact that we come to the masjid we will be tested.

00:27:16 --> 00:27:33

Right? But then the next Allah says, I just be your own. Are you going to be patient? Are you going to sit patiently about it? May Allah subhanaw taala grant us the ability to truly practice what we learn. And the purpose of these sessions is to remind myself first before anybody else.

00:27:34 --> 00:27:37

I'm not speaking to anybody I'm speaking to myself first.

00:27:38 --> 00:27:52

Because there is nobody that is more in need because I am the source of all the news. When people call me forward me without even I wake up and then like I have things that I didn't ever ask for. And it's difficult.

00:27:54 --> 00:28:38

So may Allah give me this the karma give all of us those the karma and help one another to be truly rectified in our speech. So that we can truly make a difference within the community inshallah Baraka lofi Allahumma salli wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam Jesseman Kathira are very Killa Humala Muhammad Ali Mohammed Omar Abdullah Ibrahim Ali Ibrahim Anika Homido Majeed Allahumma de novo Sana Taqwa was a Kia antihero Monza and our new home Hola, hireable Alameen Allah Houma slicker database Nina Allahu master database Nina, Allah Who Muttahida colo vana Amina NIFA, Ko Alsina dynamin allocative where are you in a nominal RIA era but I mean, law whom you don't
