from the cornerstones of our religion and from our Eman and our faith is that we believe that the man holds the answer to every single issue and problem within our lives. As Allah subhanho wa Taala himself mentioned in the Quran in surah, two nahan What is zelner and Al Kitab a tibia and equally Shay, well who don't want matawa bushrod and Muslim in and we have revealed to you or Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and by extension to us or to Muslims to all of us, we have revealed to you the book meaning the Quran and within it is a clarification for every single thing to be annulled equally shame, not just a clarification for certain things or at certain times and places
or in such certain situations, but rather it is to be handled equally shame for every time and place and generation. For every single issue. You will find guidance for it within the book of Allah the Quran and within the example of our Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam and the on earth there is a guidance and it is a mercy and it is a glad tidings a source of good news for the Muslims. This verse in the Quran shows us that whatever issue that we're facing, whatever problem you may be going through whatever new changes may come upon us, we find the principles in how to deal with those issues in the book of Allah the Quran. Yes, the Quran may not give us the exact details he may not
mention the exact situation that we're going in, because the old urn is fit for every pup every time and generation and every place. But it will give us the principles that we can extrapolate and deduce from and then apply them to our situation. And there is one such example that I want to give you in today's hotbar Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran in surah Ka and Sora palfrey's A surah that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was often with sight. It was one of his most frequent
reciting surah, as in the prayer, just as on your mind Jumeirah the Imam normally recite surah to Allah and surah to hatia and he does likewise in the wreath prayer, there are a few surahs of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite often, and he would repeat them to the companions from amongst them Massara path, sometimes read instead of reciting surah to learn Allah and Harsha, he would recite surah cough, sometimes in fudger, he would recite surah off and sometimes on the minbar in the hotbar. All he would do is recite surah off. The famous companion or mahisha are the Allah who earned her she said that I never memorize surah path other than from the mouth of the
Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam because he would recite it so often in his hotbar to jumaane. In his Friday sermon, he would just stand and he would recite surah cough, and because of how much you would recite it, the companions were able to memorize that surah or the Allahu Allahu Imaginarium. This Surah Surah Kahf deals with the Muslim King, with the pagans, with those people who rejected the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and some of the main reasons or some of the main justifications that they had for doing so. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala responds to them. For example, one of the reasons that they rejected the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was because
they couldn't fathom and understand and acknowledge that Allah subhanho wa Taala would have chosen him above them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not the most powerful man in Makkah. He wasn't the wealthiest man in Makkah. He wasn't the most eloquent man in Makkah known for his poetry. He wasn't the strongest militarily or physically in Makkah. So why then was he chosen over the likes of Abu lahab and Abuja, this was a problem that they had with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, something that wouldn't compute within their minds and brains. Also from that, which Alonzo Joel mentions in the same surah is that they couldn't accept the notion that Allah subhanho
wa Taala would resurrect them, that he would bring them back to life after death, and he would question them for the deeds, and then he would reward them or he would punish them accordingly, was something which they couldn't understand and fathom. So Allah subhanho wa Taala responds to these justifications that they had within Soraka. And because of the principles that it lays down, and because of the way that Allah azza wa jal deals with these issues, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will recite it over and over again, from those principles that Allah mentions within Surah paff in the middle of the surah.
It is a principle that applies to us today. And he replies to us on a daily basis. And it was also one of the justifications that the khoresh had, because they didn't understand or they couldn't understand and appreciate that Allah subhanho wa Taala would hold them to account for their deeds, then by extension they also didn't believe and didn't think that Allah is they were gel would know or he knew or he recorded everything that they said or did. So Allah subhanho wa Taala responding to this, he says in Surah, cough Wanaka holopainen in Santa Ana and a moment to watch this will be enough. So another shorty we created mankind, and we know that which he whispers to himself when he
lay him in Hadley luery. And we are closer to humankind to mankind, to me and you are lies closer than our own jugular vein, meaning that Allah azza wa jal with his knowledge, because he is all searing, seeing and hearing and all knowing he knows what we think. And he knows what we whisper to ourselves and he knows the deepest thoughts that we contain within our minds and hearts. If you're telecoil, Motorola piani Anil Yamini, we're unashamedly Korean, when the two receivers will receive one is sitting on the right and one is sitting on the left, Marian field looming, Colin ilala day here are people on our team. You do not utter a word or see a single statement, except that those
two angels are there ready to record what you say and do. Allah subhanho wa Taala has given to each and every single one of us, two angels. And those angels record every single thing that we say every word that we utter every word on every action that we perform. And those records they will be presented to us on human piano. This is a general principle in the Quran that we are all aware of that Allah subhana wa Taala records our deeds. And when you look throughout the Quran and the Sunnah, generally these types of texts refer to the issue of speaking, what you say and how you say it and the words that come out of your mouth. Because that was the norm of the people in the time of
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was the most prevalent form of communication, because people were illiterate for the vast majority of the Muslims at that time. They couldn't read and they couldn't write. So they spoke
So Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the words, and he speaks about how they are recorded. But one of the ways that we take that principle from the Quran, and we apply it to our situation today is that the way that we communicate with one another now has also changed over time. Because we now for the vast majority of us, and for the most part, are literate. We read on the right, not only do we read and write, but it is now more common in our time is that we type. And so we have the issues of instantaneous communication, and social media, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, WhatsApp, all of these social media outlets. But the problem that we have is that even though sometimes we write
and we type, more than perhaps we speak on the phone or speak to one another, there is a problem in the disconnect here, because we don't make that transition from this principle in the Quran. And so we often find that even though people wouldn't lie, and perhaps they wouldn't cheat, and they wouldn't swear, and they wouldn't backbite and slander verbally, they are more than happy to do so when it's behind the computer screen, when they have anonymous titles and pseudo names, and they write and they send these messages, but they don't make the transition, because they have understood the principles by which the Quran works, the principles that are large, so we just wanted us to know
and to have. And so this is something that I want to touch upon today because it is something especially for the younger members of our congregation, but even for many of us that we find is so common and prevalent people using social media, but the way that we use it, sometimes we don't instill the same values and ethics and morals and the same character that we as Muslims should have to this medium of communication. Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the sun. They gave us general principles, and from amongst the most general principles, and I will mention to you briefly today, five principles with regards to social media
and the way that we should act when it comes to typing and writing. The first of those principles is that Allah subhanho wa Taala within the on earth and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Sunnah has told us that we as Muslims, when it comes to issues of character, we should be the most exemplary of people. Muslim is the one who when he deals with anyone, or any situation, or interacts, interacts with anything, he is the one who shows his superior character, his exemplary conduct. And that's why the Prophet told us sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Namur, birth to the altar minimum Academy of luck, I was only sent to perfect and ennoble your character. That is the purpose
of Islam, to make you not only have a good relationship with your Lord, and create a loss of Hannah huhtala, but also to give you good conduct and character with the way that you deal with one another. And when you look at the example of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we all know this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the best of people in the way that he spoke, and in the way that he interacted, and in the way that he received people, and in the way that he interacted with all of the various situations to the extent that even his enemies attesting to the beauty of his character, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And that's why the Prophet told us sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam polution, mercy in us, Kudu, filmyzilla, and him in hustlin. hollow, there is nothing that will be heavier on the scales on the Day of Judgment, than your good character, the way that you act, the way that you interact, the way that you speak, how you form your words, the way that you address one another, there will be nothing heavier on the scales on the Day of Judgment than your good character. And so this is the way of the Muslim. The Muslim is the one who in every situation understands that these are general guidelines in the way that he acts and interacts. The Prophet told us on a loan while he was selling them, in them in Arbor, Reba allistic partner to
figure out the muslimeen behind the hub, from the worst types of interest in usually, and usually generally isn't money. When you take something or you give something for your take, you take something but you give back more. And because of that injustice, because it is unfair to one party or another it is haram in Islam. But the Prophet told us salallahu alayhi wa sallam from the worst types of usury is when you take liberties and justly with the honor of your fellow Muslim.
Your Muslim has an honor with regards to his well from his was to his religion with regards to his family with regards to his self. And all of these things are sacred in Islam, to take liberties and just be with the honor of another Muslim. It is from the worst types of oppression, it is from the worst types of interest. So this is a principle that we need to understand Generally, the second principle that we also take from the light of this verse, and from the Sunnah of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is that a large social told us in this
Verse that every single word that we say, every single syllable that you utter, it is something which will be recorded by the angels. And it will be presented before you are normal piano. Now that in and of itself is enough for us as Muslims, it should be enough to make a stop and pause, to make us think and reflect. Because for the vast majority of us, even though it is now 145, on a Friday afternoon, if I was to ask you to recall what you did, and what you said, from the moment that you woke up this morning, it would be almost impossible for you to recall every single word and every single statement that you made. And that's just today, and we haven't even gone halfway during the
day, than what about yesterday, and the day before. And last week, and last month, and last year. And all of those years that we've lived from the time that we reach puberty and Allah azzawajal started recording our statements and our actions to this very moment, or normal piano, all of them will be presented before us. And sometimes it's easy to misjudge the weight of a word because words is the role of the tongue, but their impact on your larger will knows when it hits that person or that other person that you're speaking to. And that's why the Prophet told us all along when he was sending him in the hadith of Billa liberal Hadith for the Allahu and in orajel narrator Karla mobile

a person will see a single word, the prophet said sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam a single word that will bring about the pleasure of Allah never did, he or she imagined that that word would reach those heights and those skills, but a large dogen will make because of that one word, his pleasure, incumbent and obligatory upon that person, until your mukaiyama, until the day of judgment, and indeed a person will say a single word that will incur the anger and the Wrath of Allah never did he or she imagined in their wildest dreams, that it would reach that level. But because of it, Allah will make obligatory upon them his anger and his wife, until the day of judgment, not a sentence,
not a phrase, not a conversation, a single word. You say a single word, perhaps that is the difference between the pleasure of Allah and the anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And just as that single word may be the difference, that single statement that you type, that one post, you paste on Facebook, or that one tweet that you have, perhaps that will have the same effect. And so these are things which we shouldn't take lightly. And even though there is much good to be found in social media and instantaneous communication, one of the dangers and pitfalls is that we so easily type and right and son, that we often don't even realize what we're doing. We don't stop and think and pause.
We don't understand or appreciate that he may harm someone that we may be spreading a lie or a false rumor. And so these are things that we need to understand because there is from the principles that Alonzo Winchell has placed for us in the Quran. The third thing that I want to bring to your attention, is what the Prophet told us also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when it comes specifically to specific issues with regards to what we say and what we type amobee, right. The Prophet told us on Allahu alayhi wa sallam the that we shouldn't lie, and we shouldn't backbite and we shouldn't spread false rumors. And it is more easier to do. So when you're behind a computer screen odor is
something which is anonymous, because if you stand in front of a group of people like I'm standing in front of you today, and I say something, there are many witnesses and all of you know who I am. And it's being recorded audio and visually. And so it is easier to take someone at their words and to hold them to account. But when it's done anonymously from behind the computer screen, or a mobile phone, and no one knows who's sending it, but it contains the same evil and the same dangerous messages. And it has the potential to cause a fitna within the community, then that is something which alarms the witch and has warned us against in the Quran. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam warned us against him The sooner the Prophet told us Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam that from amongst the people that he saw being punished in the grave, from amongst the people that he saw being punished in the grave is a man who said a single word, a single rumor that he spread, and it spread like wildfire. He only mentioned it to one person, or he sent it to one person, or he sent an email or a message to a few people. But those people then relate it to the next group of people. And then the next group of people before they began to emerge like wildfire. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam tableau, whole earth
It reaches the horizon. The whole world knows about the single rumor. And it is a rumor, meaning that it is unstamped unsubstantiated and justified. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that I saw this man in the grave that another man King James asked, he was being made to lie down, and he had a hook in his hand. So he placed it in the right side of his mouth. And then he pulled it with such force and vigor, that it turned it towards the right side of his mouth and his cheek until the back of his neck. And then he took out the talk. And he went to the other side of the man, and he placed it in the left side of his mouth and cheek, and he tore it, he pulled it with such force and
vigor that it took all the way to the back of his neck. And then he took out the token, he came run back to the right side. And by that time, Allah had made the right side heel. So he placed it back into the right side, and he tore it again. And then he came to check on the left side and it had already been healed. So again, he toward the left side. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this man will continue to move from right to left, from going right to left, and he will continue to tear the mouth of this man until Allah establishes normal, natural law for life. So grave is this punishment. And what did this man do? All he did was say something that he didn't really understand,
didn't really think of, he typed something nice, send something a message, a Facebook post, a tweet, didn't really understand and appreciate. But Allah subhanho wa Taala in his skills and in his records, everything is meticulously preserved. And each and every single one of us will have to answer for that. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In the hadith of Abdullah Abbas radi Allahu Allahu Allah, He passed by two graves. And he said to the companions with him in no Humala you are at the burn, when you have the burn, if he came here, these two men are being punished within the graves and they're not being punished, because of something that you would consider to be
major, but something which you would consider to be a major issue in our eyes, but Allah is punishing them within the graves. He said, As for the first of them, that he wouldn't protect his body and his clothing from his urine splashes, a proper common law. And as for the second man, he was a man who would spread rumors, he had been aneema, he would spread rumors amongst the community didn't think he was something major, but both of them are being punished in the grave as a result. And so these are things that we need to understand. When we have principles in the Quran. When we have these texts in the Sumner, they're not just about speaking, but they can be translated to
everything else that we do. So just as you are not allowed to lie in Islam verbally, or to cheat or to slander or to backbite. Or to make fun of someone or to call them names that they don't approve of the likewise to write such a thing, or to type such a thing has the same ruling in Islam. The fourth principle that we need to understand with regards to this is that social media is what it says on the tin. Social media is a way of communication. It is not a place of seeking Islamic knowledge. It is not a place of fatwa, there's not a place of Islamic debate, because one of the problems that we have now, and this is also one of the wider issues that we as an oma are facing is
that people are using the internet to tell people and to show them through Facebook posts that just have a few words. They consider it to be a means of seeking Islamic knowledge. Facebook and Twitter have their place. They're good for reminders, the good for inspirational quotes, they have their place for the odd question and the odd issue that the Muslims are facing. But you don't become a student of knowledge or a scholar in this religion by studying Facebook and Twitter, by following certain individuals, even if they are scholars and chefs. It has its place and it has its role. But we must understand that to think that Facebook is a place where we can go and stop debating the
minutiae of Islam. Issues of difference of opinion issues which as the self is to say, the weather to come to the likes of Amaro the Allahu and he wouldn't have ruled in that issue until he gathered all of the companions of battle. Over 300 companions attended battle. in his lifetime, the vast majority of them in his khilafah was still alive. If a new issue came to him or the Allah one, he would gather all of them and seek their counsel before he gave a religious but it is extremely dangerous to think that you can speak on behalf of Allah to make things halal and haram to speak about issues of the religion through a Facebook poster or tweet when you don't know what you're
doing. And just because it's anonymous and no one outside me know what you're doing the know that Allah azza wa jal knows what you're doing. And as Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran in surah Yama been in sun or Allah and FC he basura wallow are the wrong and indeed
Mankind you know best yourself and your intentions and why you do something. Even if you make excuses. You can say to me I didn't know you can see to me that you were ignorant you can say to someone else that you had this excuse or that excuse, but Allah azza wa jal knows what was in your heart and knew deep down know what your intention was as well. These are things that we need to be aware of, because we live in a time now when, because of these social media outlets. Even though there is some good in them there is also much harm that can be done that can be done as a result of them as colossal mattarella that he preserves us in word and action that allows xojo safe causes for
more evil and he saved called us and our families through shavon and his evil and his traps. barakallahu li walakum Ronnie was soon going to finally we're gonna be Murphy him.

smilla hailed from the Leela Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Ali, he was talking about a woman
who seldom at the Sleeman kathira. Remember
one of the things that I also want to bring to your attention. And the final thing that I want to mention today is what is the Facebook, Twitter and all of these other social media outlets, there is good to them. There is some benefit that can be attained from them. It is a good way to inspire people to motivate people, it is a good way to inform people of what is going on. But we as Muslims misunderstand that everything can be used for good and for bad. And we must be aware of this. One of the potential pitfalls and dangers in using social media. And it is something which is becoming more and more prevalent is that people use it as a way unfortunately to display their evil deeds. A
person may sin, and they may sin in the privacy of their own home, or in their own room at home, and no one else knows. But then they will mention openly and they will boast about their sins with their friends on Facebook and Twitter and these other outlets. They will take photos and they will post them on Instagram. And this is extremely dangerous. It is bad enough that we sin in the first place but the way that a person sins between themselves and Allah is that then they show remorse and they repent to Allah azza wa jal hoping that Allah subhana wa Taala will conceal the evil deeds, he will not expose them, but to expose it yourself. It is more of an aggression in the sight of Allah
subhanho wa Taala because not only do you have the audacity to sin against Allah, but then you have the arrogance to display it openly that you are sinning and disobeying Allah subhanho wa Taala and for this reason, our Prophet told us all Allahu alayhi wa sallam who lomatium Rafa Enlil Mujahideen, all of my oma will be forgiven, except those that make their sins public, those who expose themselves and in the Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and from the way that a person exposes his own sins, is that during the night he will commit a sin in the privacy of his own home, and Allah azza wa jal will conceal that chin. But in the morning, that
same person will go to his friends and his companions, and he will boast and he will say, Do you know that last night, I did such and such and such and such, so even though we're now placed upon him, his veil and he concealed him, he goes out and he makes his sins public. And so if that's the way that you do it by words, and by deeds by boasting, and as the same morning when you do it through social media, or email, these are things that we need to be aware of, because the vast majority of us use social media in one way or another. But we have to understand that the Quran and the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gives us principles, on how to use everything,
how to interact with everything that we faced within our lives. It is upon us to take those principles and apply them to the situations that we face as Allah subhana wa Tada. But his most beautiful names and lofty attributes that he protects us and our families from harm, and that Allah azza wa jal concerns, conceals our sins and that Allah subhana wa Taala forgives them and Charles has mercy upon us on that Allah subhana wa Taala enters us into the highest levels of gender, rascal, our soldiers that he makes our affairs easy and the face of our Muslim brothers and sisters, and that Allah subhanaw taala helps our brothers and sisters in places like Yemen and Syria and
Palestine and throughout the Muslim world. That's colossal panna cotta Allah that he shows his mercy upon them, that Allah azza wa jal protects their lives and their honor and their wealth and their families under Alonzo gentle enters us all into his mercy and into the highest ranks of Jannah Subhan Allah because the trc phone was Salam ala mousseline hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen, wa salam, ala Muhammad Ali. He was talking to you
Brothers and sisters as you know the machine is extremely busy today we have people all the way to the back people standing on the side so please make room for your brothers and sisters. If there is a gap by your side or in front of you filling that gap make that space for your brothers and sisters and if there is a gap next to the no one is filling then ask or encourage someone to move forward.
