Loma Linda may info now and find me my LinkedIn was in iluminado, Bill Alameen, Aloha mine critico Shoukry co host neighboured Attic,

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

and my bad.

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

So last point that we've explained and had to do with the testimony that a person can give to those who had passed away, and we've discussed specifically Muslims, so Muslim appears to be righteous, or Muslims appears to appears to be the opposite of that. Can you then testify and say that so and so is in heaven is in Jana, based on things that they used to do in the dunya for instance, they died in battle, and you think that it is a shahada, or they were scholarly. And they were great data? Yeah, whatever. So you saw you see, these are them doing something

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

that typically brings people close to Allah azo does something only reserved for the righteous and based of that, you conclude that they are in Jannah?

00:01:03--> 00:01:46

Or the opposite, which is that you see that they are sinful, and they lived a life that was wayward and distant from Allah azza wa jal, they were committing major sins publicly is as a based on that. And there's still Muslims are based on that, can you testify that this person must be punished and they are in hellfire. So he said that this is a hate this we do not know. And that ultimately belongs to Allah azza wa jal, and your judgment is reserved for what you can see. So there are two things, at least that we don't know. One is the extent of one's actions. So you know, something, but also you don't know a lot of many other things, you know that he has sinned here. But you don't know

00:01:46--> 00:02:27

if there are other hidden good deeds that he's doing other reasons for him not to be punished. Or the person who, in your eyes is righteous, but you don't know whether he is sincere or not, or whether there are other things that he had committed that would take away that righteousness, or that immediate entry into Jana. And he must first account for the sins that he has done. And we brought a couple of examples, right, the example of those who were the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And people saw this one who was very brave, and they thought he is the bravest. And the Prophet says he's in hellfire. Another person who was killed with the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was

00:02:27--> 00:03:01

Salam. And he was the prophets assistant or servant, and they said, he is a Shaheed and they said, Oh, no, because something that he had stolen, right before the battle, booty was distributed. So if a person like that, when the Prophet alayhi salatu, was salam in battle, died there that you cannot say that he is in Jannah. You can't say that about anybody else unless Allah and his prophet tells you. So. Now there are signs that we can see around us, but they are incomplete.

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

So for instance of a person, last word was law, Ada illAllah. Is that not a good sign?

00:03:09--> 00:03:51

Right. That's a good sign and the Prophet salallahu Salam says, McClymont, can you tell me la ilaha illallah the halogen that's a very good sign. But do you stand there and you say he's definitely in Jannah at this moment, as an incomplete sign. In complete sign, you don't know what else is there. But you are very hopeful. That's what Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah is saying. You'd be very hopeful when that happens, or a person is doing something pleasing to Allah and he dies while doing it. Right? Hajj, or Umrah, they die in that state that is a very good death. Or they are a no they get buried in Medina. That is a very good death, a very good spot where you will be buried, or that

00:03:51--> 00:04:33

Allah Azza takes their soul while I mean on a Friday. That is a very good thing that happens. So all these are very good signs. And you become very hopeful when that happens. But you don't conclude that this person then must be in Jannah. So you reserve judgment. And similarly it works for those who are sinful. And so the Hadith that the Prophet alayhi salam told us about the two worshipers out there the one worship or one Abbot from Begusarai, who had a brother who was sinful and he would always would give him advice. And that brother out of anger out of frustration with DCS is Allah He Daya Allah holy fallen in after giving him so much advice. He got so angry with me he says, Well

00:04:33--> 00:04:47

Allahu Allah will not forgive you. So Allah azza wa jal revealed that who is swearing that I will not forgive so and so I had forgiven him and invalidated your deeds meaning that type of

00:04:48--> 00:05:00

boldness, in statements about Allah azza wa jal where you exclude people from Allah's mercy and forgiveness, and that will lead to hopelessness. That is if a person believes

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

gives you and he say Allah will never forgive me. What is left for him? All right. So it's a very serious statement where you distant people from the Mercy of Allah as origin. So Allah says, I have what forgiven him. So in your mind, and in my mind, a person could be beyond forgiveness, because of sin, disbelief is something else because of sin. But Allah's Mercy is great. And if you remember, there are things that could stop a person from being punished, though they are committing major sins. What are these other good deeds, or the good deeds that a person may have done? Or there's no heat, or the love for Allah and His Messenger, or pain that they've gone through?

00:05:45--> 00:06:06

Or it was a pain that they've gone through, whether before death or during death, that could take away those sins, or that somebody has made for them could be their parents. It could be their loved ones, their children, but they make dua for them, and Allah azza wa jal could take away the punishment because of this. And then also on the Day of Judgment, there is what

00:06:07--> 00:06:09

what is there on the day of judgment that could take away

00:06:10--> 00:06:33

your punishment. This is Allah's forgiveness. So I like it forgive and there is Shiva. Right? So the Shah of Rasulullah Alayhi Salatu was Salam or the Shiva of the angels or the Shiva of the other prophets or the Shiva of relatives, right of his, that he'd be saved from hellfire or if he enters it, he that he would leave it

00:06:35--> 00:06:47

now also something in solid to attach to all of this, which is if we don't know people, right, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that you had beat to have to be reserved in praise.

00:06:48--> 00:06:58

That is in Canada Hadoken Maddie Hannah how Hola, Mohalla familia Kula Cebu, Kedah. Waka wala has Hebrew. He says if someone has to praise his brother

00:06:59--> 00:07:15

has to praise his brother. Let him say I think him to be so and so I Cebu I think him to be so and so. What Allah who has Cebu Allah knows him? Well, Allah knows him best has he will meaning that he had counted everything about him so Allah knows him.

00:07:16--> 00:07:33

I don't have that knowledge. But I think based on what I see, and that tells you that moderates any praise that we can give anybody any person right and also for the one who receives that phrase, it also it moderates any

00:07:35--> 00:08:19

What do you call it? pride that you may feel oh look at them telling that saying this and that about me. But when he hears Cebu I think that he is so you realize that their knowledge is limited about who you know yourself better than those who are praising you. The US people's praise if you take it as an indication of Allah's love for you is something wonderful something to thank Allah azza wa jal for that he did not expose your mistakes but rather he hid conceal them and had put people's love for you in their hearts. Right. So people love you, that is a beautiful thing to have. But at the same time, don't let that fool you thinking just just because they praise you that you're that

00:08:19--> 00:08:27

person. So you'd know more about yourself than anybody around you. So at Cebu your knowledge of people is limited.

00:08:28--> 00:08:33

Now let's let's discuss this matter when it comes to the non believers.

00:08:34--> 00:09:18

Now do I testify that a non believer who has died as a non Muslim do I say that definitively he's in hellfire, okay. So there are some people who will say he and his son from L M and follow button and they will say yes, if he dies as a non Muslim, he is in hellfire. Right? And they will cite as evidence that the prophets Allah Allah wa salam was stolen Arabi. He said, Hey, Thelma Martha Brica fearing for Bashir will be now he says we're at wherever you're going to pass a grave of a disbeliever give him the news of hellfire. So he told that Arabi that if you're going to see any when you pass by, and it's the grave of a Kaffir give him the news of hellfire. So that means that

00:09:18--> 00:09:22

this hadith tells us that anyone who dies as a

00:09:23--> 00:09:27

Kaffir disbeliever is what is in hellfire.

00:09:29--> 00:09:45

What is problematic with that understanding, right? Because I'm gonna champion the other opinion not this opinion. What is problematic about this understanding is that if we include me if we make this the grave of every disbeliever so how do we distinguish between disbelievers who had heard the message of Islam

00:09:46--> 00:09:48

and disbelievers who haven't.

00:09:49--> 00:10:00

Yanni if we're going to apply this universally, meaning in North America, South America, Europe, Africa everywhere, any person who is not a Muslim and dies, like

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

Baghdad, we're going to say that he's in hellfire. So how do I distinguish between those who have heard the message of Islam and understood it and those who did not? So that becomes a problem. So how did the scholars answer that hadith yet? How did they understand that hadith, they said this is specific to that Arabi that this is not a command for every Muslim, wherever you've has a grave of a non believer or a non Muslim, you think that they are in hellfire. This is this is specific to that Arabi and to the area and locality where he was, that is true for him. But other scholars have said that what how we said that applies to the believers that you don't know their final resting place or

00:10:42--> 00:10:57

final destination, you don't know where it is. So the disbelievers you don't really know because this is life. So you don't know first of all, if this can fit, did he receive the message of Islam? That somebody answered his doubts?

00:10:58--> 00:11:14

Did he receive sufficient information or not that you don't know? And even if he does, suppose that you know, you don't know before his death, just before his death? Did he come back and say I accept Islam and pronounce the shahada and then die?

00:11:15--> 00:11:30

right or not? Yeah, some say, if you had given dower to that person, and you know for sure that he has no excuse, and you with him till the end like the prophets of Allah, Allah who was sitting them was was with Abu Talib till the end.

00:11:31--> 00:11:57

You were with him till the end. And he loved last thing that he says, I'm dying as a non Muslim and he dies like that. Maybe then you can say, Yes, this person, as far as I can tell, is in hellfire. There's no excuse. There's no other way for that. But lacking that information, you can testify that that person is in hellfire again. And there's a story of

00:11:58--> 00:12:39

a new Muslim. I've heard recently, and people were inviting him to Islam, inviting him to Islam. And he kind of goes considering that, that religion was impressed by it and the behavior and the luck by the way, the lack of Muslims. So he says the reason why, you know, kind of pushed him to embrace Islam is one of those nights he was sitting by himself in his apartment and he couldn't breathe. He couldn't breathe, he couldn't breathe. He thought he's gonna die. And then the thought that came to him is that play the Quran? He's, he's aware of the Quran, right? Aware of the essentials in Islam play the Quran. So he prayed the Quran, and he felt better.

00:12:40--> 00:12:56

And the next day he went and he pronounces Shahada. Now imagine if that person right at that moment where he couldn't breathe, and he realized that it's Islam, and he accepts Islam and then he dies. So possible, right? Five as far as you know His Word,

00:12:57--> 00:13:27

you know, Muslim, you will not there with him. But in the eyes of Allah azza wa jal, right and with Allah, he's what? He's definitely Muslim. Right? He accepted Islam. So in that way, this is the end. This is not for us to start saying, putting people in heaven and pooping, putting people in hell rather, you know, refrain from all of this because it's a vape leave it to Allah as though it really should not be a point of debate and arguments. Allah Allah knows best and you move on. Right? And that is the safest approach or lower.

00:13:30--> 00:14:23

The next or the following point that Muhammad Rahim Allah mentions, he said, Well, Roger Moore, how can Adam and Xena Sina either Uttara Alka Metalia he'll be in our kataragama Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa Salam o patrologiae Mattila Emoto Rashi dune. He said what Raju or Raju is stoning, the adulterer or adulterous, so he says it is a fact and is established for those who had committed Zina, and they are married either a tariff or if he confesses, or the proof was established against him or her and the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam did stone and the hola hola in Mirage, you don't they did stone after him. Right? So this is an interesting assertion for the Imam Muhammad Rahim

00:14:23--> 00:14:48

Allah because this is if you would want to classify it, this is FIP. Right? And then this is not a point of belief. And why did he insert that in it? Is because and there are similar insertions in the book of al Qaeda from these ima where they put a an issue of faith in it because that issue is in debate in dispute.

00:14:50--> 00:14:55

And it had become a mark distinguishing mark between the people of sunnah and the people of Bidda.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

So the people of bedarra started to debate that

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

skewed that to reject it. So the product that I demand Muhammad Rahim Allah is wants to see what that you have to believe this this. This is part of Islam as we will explain. So first of all, people are denying it. Don't follow them. This is part of Islam. It's in the Quran or it's in the sunnah or it's, you know, the, the work and the consensus of the sahaba. So don't listen to them. That's that part of belief that you should have. And also, because those who debate that and rejected are the innovators, it's a distinguishing feature. If you believe this, you're from Andrew suna, if you don't, then that's a mark that you are from the multimedia from I would be there. So

00:15:42--> 00:16:20

that's why he emphasizes this. So people don't doubt it. People still apply it, they still believe in it. And they know the difference between right and wrong with the signs. As we've talked before, and we will talk now about the Sahaba of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam you know, that those who praise them are 100 sunnah, and those who criticize them are the people who be there. So that's a distinguishing feature, even before you go into the details of who this sect is and what they believe. If you hear that from them, you're going to smell the Buddha coming from there then you stop. So when he is talking here about stoning.

00:16:21--> 00:16:23

He says it is how

00:16:24--> 00:16:26

it is truth. It is there.

00:16:28--> 00:16:54

And the question here where was it? Right where was it? So Mr. Malhotra bro the Allahu Anhu wants to get in the member. This is when he he was a Khalifa are the Allahu Anhu and he said, if people if it's not that people would say that Omar Abdullah hottap changed the book of Allah azza wa jal I would include the eye of Rajim stoning. In the Quran, it was revealed and what used we used to read it

00:16:55--> 00:17:03

and it was part of the Quran that people would recite people would read you know how we read in the Salah, it was part of the Quran and then then there was nothing

00:17:05--> 00:17:51

Okay, the wording was removed but the ruling wasn't? Well che who was che her to either as an AR for jumbo ml, but the 10 Akella mean Allah. So it says the Shaco a shaker meaning the married married man or married woman, if they commit Zina, then you will stone them right to death, I mean till till the end Alberta till the end meaning to their death, that is their punishment. So he said out of the Allahu Anhu that the prophets a lot he was sitting on did that and it was revealed, and we did that as well. So I do not want people to come and dispute or debate the fact that this is true. The Rajim is from Islam, stoning. The adulterer and adulterous to death is in Islam.

00:17:52--> 00:17:57

Now, what's in the Quran is whipping. Right?

00:17:59--> 00:18:19

The fornicators those who commit Zina but they're unmarried. That's the difference. If someone is not married, and they commit Zina, they get whipped 100 times, of course, if they confess, or if there are four witnesses that confirm that offense, if they are married,

00:18:21--> 00:18:57

if they are married, the punishment is different. Right? What does it mean if they are married, meaning that they have the Nika and they were intimate with their spouse? It's not that they just have it on paper, right? No, they have it on paper, and they were intimate, meaning they know the way of halal. That's the difference. They've tried it. They tried the halal, and despite that, they went after the haram. So then their offense would be capital punishment, death. That happens only with two things. Mainly two things. Okay. One is

00:18:59--> 00:19:00

that they confess,

00:19:01--> 00:19:43

they confess, and they be of sound mind. And they repeat that confession four times, and they are specific and detailed. About what happened. It's not vague. But yes, this is what I've done. And we take that from the story of Mary's are the Allahu anhu, who came to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, right? And he confessed. And the prophets Allah, Allah, who was sitting him did not accept his first confession, right? So Matt has came and he confessed, and the Prophet turned away from him. He came again and he confessed, and you turned away from him. The third turned away the fourth then asked him, maybe you're mistaken. Maybe you just did this, but not that. Right. So the prophets

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

already sent him is giving him what chance to take it back to retract. chance to just go away. Maybe you did this, maybe not. And the prophets Allah said, No, eventually he was very specific about it. Maybe this is what you mean. Is this what you mean? Like he says, intercourse?

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

That is what you mean? He says, yes. You know I did with her what a man would do with his wife.

00:20:08--> 00:20:11

Then the Prophet salallahu Salam commanded that he be stoned.

00:20:12--> 00:20:14

Okay. And

00:20:15--> 00:20:39

when he was was when he was being stoned and the prophets Allah wa salam wasn't with him. And Matt is panicked a little bit. And so Muslims, you know, the Muslims were there, they followed him and they continued the stoning until he died and the prophets Allah, Allah wa sallam told him afterwards, if he had retracted if he runs away, you let him loose? Never a person recounts meaning, if what proves his offense is his own confession.

00:20:40--> 00:20:42

And he takes it back later. What do you do with him?

00:20:44--> 00:20:58

Let him go. Right? If they start doing it, and he says, no, no, I mean, I didn't know It's that serious because he's gonna die. And he says, no, no, I take it back. You take it back, you leave. Right? That's it, because it says his own confession that implicated him.

00:20:59--> 00:21:02

So there is that if karar the other one is a beginner?

00:21:04--> 00:21:06

The proof established against him, what is this proof?

00:21:07--> 00:21:13

They have testimony of what for men who see him in the act.

00:21:15--> 00:21:37

See him in the act itself. Right meaning again, explicitly intercourse they see that they could describe that not he was alone with a woman in an apartment, for instance. No, it wasn't that. He is the see that. It says when they see that and it has to be four, it cannot be three. Right? Then at the time of Omar Radi Allahu Anhu. You know, four witnesses came against someone.

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

And because he was, you know, alone with a woman and what have you three testified 123. The fourth was about to testify. But he said when Omar asked him, he said, What did you see? He said, I saw something inadequate, but I can't say that it was intercourse, something in the indecent, but I can say it's intercourse. So because the fourth would not testify or model the Allahu Anhu whipped the three. Right? Because it's very serious, right? It's very serious. Because imagine what you're doing to this person. First, what are you doing to his reputation to his family, and then ultimately his life? Right, that you're going to kill him? So unless you're absolutely sure, you wouldn't come with

00:22:21--> 00:22:44

that testimony. And subhanAllah some of the scholars of Islam have said they said as far as we know, and they were speaking in the seventh eighth century, and maybe this applies till today. Allah Allah, I don't know. But they say as far as we know, no one was killed because of stoning. Because of the witness of four witnesses. No one was killed. an adulterer

00:22:45--> 00:23:09

in stoning, right, because of the witness of four witnesses, as far as we know, historically, definitely did not happen at the time of the prophets of Allah Salaam. And as far as I know, that didn't happen at the time of the whole affair. And then successive generations, they never, they never did that. Right? To tell you that it is very hard for that thing to happen for four witnesses to superior to see a person doing that. It only happened through confessions.

00:23:11--> 00:23:18

Now, one of the things that we can take from that all before that before that inshallah before the lessons that you can take from it.

00:23:20--> 00:23:39

So it's right there, it was right there in the Quran, but it was taken away. Right. But the prophets Allah is hindlimb did it and there is sunnah. There's a hadith about it. And the companions did it. And the hadith of Russia do. So this exchange is interesting because some of the coverage

00:23:40--> 00:23:45

and if you remember we talked a little bit about the homology they come to Omar Abdulaziz Rahim Allah

00:23:46--> 00:24:05

and they say that how come you stone the adulterer, and it's not there in the Quran? What is in the Quran is to whip them. Where did you bring that from? We're not going to let go of the Quran. Right? For the sake of what you report, the Quran takes

00:24:07--> 00:24:32

precedence. And they see also that when a woman is menstruating and when she is done, you command her, not you but collectively you you command her to make up the days of fasting that she missed but not her what Salah and which is more important. Salah or fasting, Salah right? So how come right

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

and I'll just finish the story and then I'll comment right so Omar Abdulaziz Rahim Allah He said, Okay, look, tell me, tell me, where do you find in the Quran that you pray five times a day in these specific types of rock as with whatever you recite in them, where do you find that in the Quran? And where do you find in the Quran? The portion of Zika from every category, where do you find that in the Quran? So

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

They went, and they conferred, and they read the Quran and they came back and they said we couldn't find it anywhere in the Quran. Then he said, How can you do it? He said, because it was done before us and handed to us, meaning the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did it. And then he transmitted and the Sahaba around him transmitted that to the following generation, and so on and so on, until it would receive that. So this is how you know, that Salah is five times with these miracles, this is what you say in them, this is what this is, this is what had you remember, all of this had come to you from whom that transmission. So he said, similarly, all of these things were transmitted to us Rajim

00:25:38--> 00:25:44

stoning was transmitted to us, and the fact that she will make up her fasting but not the salah will transmit it to us.

00:25:46--> 00:26:23

Subhan Allah the whole adage, you know of who we are so Reviled in the past are better than a lot of people who call themselves Muslims today. Because there's what a reference that you can go back to. For those Howard's you can say, how do you know about the Salah? How do you know about this occur? And we can admit that yes, we don't know except through transmission. There are some people who are calling themselves Muslims today who will not even submit to that. You see, yeah, we don't know what Salah is and how to pray, we don't know what Zika is, and, and they come up with things on their own. This is what Salah isn't, this is what Zika is. So that is a greater deviance Subhan Allah than

00:26:23--> 00:26:45

the devious of the Herati at that moment, just to tell you how the Great Departure like the karate were considered to be among the worst, at that period, among the worst, today, they will not be among the worst. Right? And now notice insha Allah that rationale or that reasoning that they had, which is the same reasoning that we have today, meaning you use your mind to counter the Sharia.

00:26:47--> 00:27:15

For instance, you know, why not? Why fasting but not salah is the same question that came to Asha all the Allahu anha when I think a woman or a woman asked her, he says, How come that when we finish our period, we make up our days of fasting, but not the salah. And she asked her he says 100 a year to an auntie, it says Are you from the coverage? Because she could recognize that type of thinking. So when you put your head and your mind ahead of the Sharia, you will deviate tremendously

00:27:16--> 00:27:28

and you could see you could see if you just accept Allah's laws and judgment okay, you could see the benefit get which is harder to make up salah or fasting.

00:27:30--> 00:28:07

sunnah, how many, five for each day one after the other one factor the other whereas fasting, you're not fasting all the whole mean every month. It's just one month, and it will be five, six days and you're done with it. But you got to put on her the burden of all the Salas Okay, you'll end up high with a woman a lot of women not not not praying. Right? And as for stoning, why do you don't find it here? Why don't find it there? Well, the transmission is the essence of Islam. In fact, you can extend it and use it ask them those people and those who you have, how do you know that the Quran is the Quran?

00:28:10--> 00:28:11

How do you know

00:28:12--> 00:28:40

you woke up one day and somebody you know just revealed it to you? Obviously not How do you know? It says because I when I when I was of age, my father gave it to me, we gave it to your father, the entire generation who gave it to us the generation before us and then the generation before so you do not know that the Quran is the Quran except through transmission. And then when you read it later on, you'll have further proof but the essential one is transmission. It's the same thing with the Sunnah.

00:28:41--> 00:28:46

If you're going to doubt the Sunnah, you've opened the door for doubting the Quran.

00:28:47--> 00:29:29

Is that clear? So the actions of the Sahaba or the Allah norm tells you that and the Khalifa tells you that this is the Sunnah of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. Now, you know, one of the benefits that we do you can take from that is just to understand how Allah azza wa jal hates the sin. This sin that in a lot of countries and a lot of cultures in the world today is no longer a sin. Right? A person can do it, and they wouldn't be thinking twice about it. But you as a Muslim, you have to develop that sensitivity, that hypersensitivity that this Allah hates this so much that a person is married has to be killed for it.

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

So do you understand that his life has to end on this earth because of that sin, this is that incredible harm that he's introducing. Or if he's not married, he is to be whipped 100 times and then distant, distanced from the land that he was sin. I mean, he has to be expelled from his area, a period of a year. He can't live in that area for one year. He has to feel what it's like to be a stranger in another city.

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

He and another province far away from his family for one year, in addition to being whipped.

00:30:06--> 00:30:16

So a person who knows that punishment and knows also how much Allah hates it will never commit this. Now it's a tragedy that we don't have that punishment, because it's a deterrence.

00:30:17--> 00:30:24

A lot of people if they just know that this is the possibility, they wouldn't do it, they simply will not do it.

00:30:26--> 00:31:08

So in its absence, or what do you do, you have to develop your own sensitivity towards that sin? Well, that Accra Bozena do not even come close to sinner. And the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said, Les is Nizami Hina is Nemo Mortman. The fornicator does not commit fornication while having EMA. And in the Hadith, or in the explanation, it says that the Eman will leave him like the Lulu like a shadow or like an umbrella, something that covers him, it will leave him until he's done with that sin, then he's the man will come back to him. So it'd be taken away, and then it will come back. He's still a Muslim. It's a major sin, he's still a Muslim, but that human will go out. So

00:31:08--> 00:31:24

this imagine that a person dies in that state when the man has exited. You don't know if it goes back to him or not. So it's a major sin. And it's destructive psychologically, socially, physically. And it's also very detrimental to your religion.

00:31:25--> 00:31:27

It's haram. And I know it's easy.

00:31:28--> 00:32:09

It's easy and halal we've made to be difficult, right? But you have to understand that if it's difficult, it's difficult for a reason, when we shouldn't make it difficult, but if it's difficult, it's difficult for a reason that Allah azza wa jal wants to see who who really fears him or who really loves him, and who will stay from the Haram even though it's a very accessible. So though it's ubiquitous, it's everywhere. Allah Azza Jeunesse Prophet say, Do not even come close to it, to places where it's practiced, to the people who would beautify that in your eyes, to images that will inflame your desire, all of this, you stay away from it, because you don't want to lose your faith.

00:32:11--> 00:32:44

So that is the statement of meta himolla about a Rajan. As we said, that you're though it is an issue of fic. But you understand here how the acceptance of this ruling involves what our theta, right, I believe about Allah and His His Prophet about what is acceptable in Islam. But what is legitimate and what is not. So really, its inclusion is very important, because it does teach us a lot about how to behave and you know what to accept.

00:32:45--> 00:32:46


00:32:52--> 00:33:38

Nom, so he's saying video evidence, if you have images or video recording of a person who's committing that. So the scholars when they studied this, they said that does not that does not stand as equal to four witnesses. It does not stand as equal to four witnesses. And we must understand that having four witnesses does not mean simply that this person was detected. Because if that's the case, two is enough, right as witnesses to is enough, but why we insisting on for, right? That That thing is public enough that this person has to be punished for it, that he is so careless and iREP irreverent, in the committing of that sin, that he has to be punished with that punishment that

00:33:38--> 00:33:54

could take away his life. But a person, let's say, Who's hiding with that sin and somehow gets videotaped. Right? All right. I'm not gonna go into now the fact that you could fake these things today, right? But let's suppose that they can, and it's not manipulated.

00:33:55--> 00:34:34

This person was in public with it. He committed his sin. He just happened to be caught by a camera or by DNA. Right? But that doesn't mean that that fits exactly the punishment that Allah azza wa jal wants for him. Now, at the same time, it doesn't mean that he escapes full punishment, because the call the the judge or the man will say, Well, I have punishment for you, but it doesn't reach that type of punishment. You can you get whipped this many times, or fined, or what have you, whatever they're going to decide. That's called jazzier. So we will punish you for this thing, but it's not the punishment of being whipped 100 times if he is a bachelor, or being killed if he's married, so

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

it doesn't rise to its level, but at the same time, it is something that he needs to answer for. So

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

Zack gonna love him.

00:34:46--> 00:34:59

Now even Muhammad Rahim, Allah now moves on and he talks about he goes back and remember when the beginning we talked about the Sahaba of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. So he comes again and to emphasize this. And he says, well, meaning Taqwa.

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

them in this hobby Rasulullah he obado He says if someone criticizes demeans one of the companions of the prophets of Allah, he was hitting them or hates him. He had a thin Can I mean who for a mistake that he has done or that Cara Misawa who are who he talks about his mistakes, can I move to the he is an innovator had a Uttara harmala him Jamia until he has only good things to say about all of them, and includes you know, the ROM of Allah or invokes Rama Allah for all of them. Were called Opal Bula home Salema. And he has orally a sound heart towards them. Okay, he has no ill feelings towards them. So here again,

00:35:42--> 00:36:06

Metro himolla is emphasizing the Sahaba of the Prophet alayhi wa Salatu was Salam. He says that, suppose that they make VEDA mistake. And we talked about this before, right? Now, we said that, do we believe that the Sahaba are infallible? This is No, we don't have that belief. A Sahabi can commit a mistake, right?

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

So whether it's a senior sahabi, one of the great Sahabas, or one of the junior Sahabas, each one of them can commit a mistake. What is your attitude towards a mistake that this hobby has done? So you say it don't focus on the mistake and forget the rest of their accomplishments? That's justice when you look at anyone. So if you have to learn this justice, because some of us for some reason, right are people who like to just dig dirt with other people, you're just generally we like to find the worst in people and magnify it. And that sometimes, you know, is an indication of, you know, our own problems, right? Like I just, I'm so resentful, I'm so angry. And I just want to put everybody down,

00:36:52--> 00:37:05

that I'm just looking for anybody's mistakes. And that's what I'm going to magnify. If you even treat your peers, other people around you like that we say that's not justice. Because you have to take into account the rest of that what that person has done.

00:37:06--> 00:37:51

Also, you have to take into account whether this person has an excuse or not, whether this person may have misinterpreted things or not. Or even if it's a sin, if it's a sin, that is that is in comparison to his life that is filled with righteousness that could be overlooked, overlooked in the sense of what we tell him, it's wrong. But you don't undermine damage, his reputation, his status, because of one thing that he has done that is wrong. If that's the that's that's how, what Justice dictates how we deal with others. Your brothers and your sisters, that's more so with this hub of the Prophet alayhi wa Salatu was Salam. That is a person can go and you know, look through the life

00:37:51--> 00:38:06

of Abu Bakr, radi, Allahu, and North growth will look at the life of Omar go through look at life of Earth man, because these are the people who are the target. This is look at what he has done here. Look at what he has done there. First of all, we say, Is this actually authentic? Or not?

00:38:07--> 00:38:15

And he can open the books of history and read things attributed to all of them and say the ad that they did all of that,

00:38:16--> 00:38:32

especially like also, what are we what are the Allah and all he did all of that and our honorable house? He did all of that. Is it actually authentic to them or not? The books of history, whether you will know it or not have a lot of fabricated reports about the Sahaba

00:38:33--> 00:39:17

that came from people who did not hesitate to lie, because they wanted to damage the reputation and champion their own beliefs. So how do you do this by damaging the Sahaba so they lied, they did this and they did that no basis in history, but it Hamdulillah you have a chain. So the scholars of Islam will tell you that report had this Jane and this person is a fabricator, this person is a liar. None of this can be accepted. So there are some books of history that will collect everything for the sake of what keeping the records this is wasn't lost. So he's saying like a Tabare for him, Oh Allah, He will collect everything. But with a chain as if he's saying, you know, I've done my job of

00:39:17--> 00:39:51

collecting all of that now you look at the chain that I provided, I've given you the keys, so just don't go believing everything. But there are some people who would come later who would drive Islamic history they look at these reports. They don't know the difference between right and wrong. They'll think this is what exactly happened. It isn't. So there was in the Sahara and there was in belief just like we did when the Hadith and we say Soham The eighth, right? Or say Hanif and even fabricated we say the same thing with historical reports. So first of all, is it really authentic about Abu Bakr and Omar and Rothman and where are we in all of those people? That's one. Second of

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

all, why harp on their mistakes? If they made a mistake? Don't you know that? They do wish they had it as a righteous person?

00:40:00--> 00:40:27

I could make a mistake but what is my intention? Does that not matter? There were people who would sacrifice their life for Allah xojo their money, their family, everything that they have for the sake of Allah. And then there come a time and they make a mistake, a judgment, a miss judgment, but it's not their intention to disobey Allah. Yanni, when other you cannot be tolerated and wow, we have no be Sophie enrollee Allahu anhu, they were fighting in Safin. Were they doing this because they wanted the dunya

00:40:29--> 00:41:14

it definitely not right. Ali urothelial No, definitely not. And why we are he was not saying explicitly, or to anyone I want the healer for it was an argument over the killers of Earth man. So a judgment here and a judgment there. But they did not intend to disobey Allah azza wa jal. So the Sahaba Allah azza wa jal had praised them in the Quran. And the scholars of Islam, they said Lisa badda de la heeta deal after the Allah vouching for them. There is no room for anybody to vouch right after Allah telling you that they are sincere, that they are of the people of Jana, that that all of that is afterwards, there is no room for anybody to doubt them.

00:41:15--> 00:41:57

So, if a person if as a hobby has committed a mistake, you say it's a drop, as they say, it's a drop in the sea of of their virtue. It's a drop in the sea of their virtue, meaning, what gets, you know, ignore gets overcome, you don't talk about it, you don't discuss it, you don't broadcast it. Because the more that you do that, the less people will love them. And you don't want that to happen, the less that you will love them. And you don't want that to happen, but rather you ignore those mistakes, and you focus on the good things that they have done. And if you were to encounter a mistake like that, you understand that their intention was good, and that they made this Jihad and

00:41:57--> 00:42:06

if a righteous person this SD had and they are right Allah towards them twice and they are wrong Allah rewards them once. So they are between two rewards and one reward

00:42:07--> 00:42:20

and that Allah azza wa jal what forgave them, even with those mistakes. So what did he say about how to sell Allahu Allah He was in them right? When he informed the people that the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam was going to come?

00:42:21--> 00:42:31

Right, in fact him again in the opening of Mecca. So how are you better out of the Allahu Anhu? Right, he told the people of Makkah, he sent them news of the Prophet salallahu Salam is coming.

00:42:32--> 00:42:47

So openly Hatha What did he say? Let me what kill him because this seemed to UModel the Allahu Anhu it is like the ultimate act of betrayal. Let me kill him. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said What what are you reek? Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah Hi. Halima didn't Faqad MLO Machito

00:42:48--> 00:43:00

Hi. He says what do you what do you know what makes you know? Or maybe or that it is actually it is that Allah azza wa jal have looked at the people of better and say Do whatever you want, meaning you're forgiven

00:43:01--> 00:43:14

the people of better right because of their sacrifice to Allah Zota This is do whatever you want you are forgiven. So even though health immoral the Allah Who did that right which you know when you look at it he say how could

00:43:15--> 00:43:53

but he says even that is forgiven for someone like that but how to be apologize to the prophets a lot who sent me say it not that I want, you know, disliked Islam and let you know, like despair, disbelief, but rather I had family in Mecca that I wanted to protect. So I wanted the Makins. I wanted the favor to curry favor with the Munchkins so that they will protect my family. That's it. That's what he did. And again, right Miss judgment. But you don't go oh, you know, following how to build your lawn, you say, Look what he did. Look what he did. Look what he did. This is a personal Allah had forgiven and the one who's speaking is not right, the ones who are attacking them, Allah

00:43:53--> 00:44:10

did not but Allah had forgiven those people. So he says, if there is a mistake like that, you would forget about it, you don't focus on it. And also think about it and those who attack the Sahaba right, those who may attack Abu Bakr and Omar, let's say,

00:44:11--> 00:44:51

for the sake of Ali, while the Allah and we said we want it to be the Imam. Okay, and once you allow us to see how dangerous that is, I said, I want it to be the Imam and he's infallible. So we will attack our buck and Omar for that is if you set the stage for attacking Abu Bakr and Omar based on principles that you have established, right? The same principles can be taken and applied against or even not to be thought about all the Allahu Anhu and you will be defenseless. Right? The same principles as if you could point to a mistake that Abubaker did or Omar did and say because of that they have to be discredited. A person could turn that against you and say and look what it did. And

00:44:51--> 00:44:57

he can discredit it. It'll the law no because of the same criteria that you've used and you've damaged everybody,

00:44:58--> 00:45:00

but rather, our whole

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

as Mohammed said should be sound okay and clean towards us hub of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam and and you should love them immensely, and know that you will never see anybody around you who will be better than this hub of the Prophet salallahu Salam and that inhumanity in its history that had not existed companions of a prophet like the companions of Muhammad Ali is Salatu was Salam. And you want to know that if you want confirmation, look at the companions of Musa alayhis salaam in the Quran. Look at them a bit, who is Salafi? How much does Allah condemn them? Right? And they do a lot of Busara eel are gonna be in Jannah. But look how many, how much does Allah condemned

00:45:40--> 00:45:41

them in the Quran?

00:45:42--> 00:46:15

And look at the companions of Isa Alayhis Salam, and he didn't have you know, much time to form right? A companions like Musa and Muhammad Ali. He was Salatu was Salam. But look at the companions of Isa Ali Sinha Tamala Ali Salam, they weren't strong enough to upkeep his message afterwards. It's just disappeared. But look at the companions of Muhammad Ali salatu salam look at what Abu Bakr did. Look at Omar, look at truth, man, look at Ali, look at the Companions afterwards how much Islam spread. Till now it covers every continent, it's an every continent, and soon it will be in every home.

00:46:16--> 00:47:02

So that is what the light of Muhammad Allah has salatu salam and his message spreading through the companions of Muhammad Ali salatu, Salam model, the Allahu Anhu. So this is why he said and it's really important, he said, that if you're a person who is talking about the Companions mistake, it's your doctor, they're your innovator. Whether it is, you know, the RWA field, or the Hawaii bridge, or any other sects that exists, when you see somebody attacking and targeting the Sahaba, that is a sign there, you don't need to know more about them. That is a sign if you receive a video, right? Or there is a speaker and you hear them starting to what speak ill of any of the Sahaba closing, you

00:47:02--> 00:47:27

don't need to investigate any further. You've already what had smelled like you're going into a mind and you smell that there is what and what's in the mind. I don't know. Anything that says something? Poisonous, right? So you know that that's an early detection, you smell it there, you're not gonna keep going there to kill yourself. If you keep going. You're gonna kill yourself. That's an early detection that that person

00:47:28--> 00:48:02

isn't up to date. Whether he is talking ill of Abu Bakr and Omar Wali, Allah and home, or even more obnoxious of Jandali Allah No, because that is what that's that's the edge of the Sahaba here meaning what is the first line of defense? If he says, Okay, I'll criticize Maria, because you guys don't care much about him, you know, know that he's marching towards the big guys. I'm gonna put on Omar, he's marching towards there, but he'll begin with a small fish in his eyes, because you're not going to object as much. So no, so can I Muqdadiyah.

00:48:03--> 00:48:18

And if a person we mentioned talked about this before, if a person says that all of the Sahaba or that most of us Harbor, a past stated after the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, if they say that that in itself is a statement of disbelief

00:48:19--> 00:48:36

for you, if a person says no, this person might be a disbelief or not, because there are conditions to establish that ruling. But the statement itself if a person says most of the Sahaba had abandoned Islam, that is a statement of disbelief, because he will be rejecting what?

00:48:37--> 00:48:50

Rejecting the Quran, going against the Quran and going against consensus. In fact, if a person says that obika And Omar in particular are kuffaar that is a statement of disbelief.

00:48:51--> 00:48:59

Right? Because there is consensus each map that they're not. So it goes against the Iijima if a person insults,

00:49:00--> 00:49:04

the Sahaba insults Abubaker insults Omar right,

00:49:05--> 00:49:48

depending on what the insult is, but just let's say just your regular insults the other man disagree he that's he's an innovator is an update, there is not a Kaffir. But some of the elements said he's to be punished. In fact, somebody said that he has to be killed because of that. Right? So it's important that a person honors the Sahaba without them, as we talked about transmission, you wouldn't have the Quran and you wouldn't have this. Right. And we said before that it's ironic that right, the Quran which is the cornerstone of Islam, who collected the Quran, the cornerstone of Islam, who collected that you have Abu Bakr and then you have Earthman right, well bucket and you

00:49:48--> 00:49:58

have Earth man. So a person this believes or you know, denounces Abu Bakr and then denounces Earth man, that how can you trust the Quran that you have in your hand? Right now

00:50:03--> 00:50:06

Okay, we have a little bit of time so we're going to just touch on the next

00:50:08--> 00:50:09

point insha Allah

00:50:11--> 00:50:52

he says here for him Hola. Now he moves to another point and he says when he FERPA who will Khufu? He's talking about default hypocrisy. And maybe he's talking about hypocrisy Allahu Allah. And because there is a connection between hypocrisy and hating the companions of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam that it is a sign of hypocrisy and that it leads to it. So anyway, he says when he thought who would go through hypocrisy is go for is disbelief. A yoke for Villa here with the Euro who that is he this believes in Allah and worships another while you were the early Islam, Filipina Ania while he publicly confesses Islam methylone Munna, Filipina Latina Canada de Rasulullah he

00:50:52--> 00:50:57

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So it says a nice apple who will go through

00:50:58--> 00:51:40

so he's explaining the *? What is the *? And he is saying he had that knee fat, and this is the major and he felt that it was at the time of the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam It was when people disbelieved on the inside, but pretended to believe on the outside he says that is was that is disbelief. Like the prophet that hypocrites at the time of the prophets of Allah, Allah He was. So the hypocrites at the time of also the Allahu Alayhi Salatu was Salam who existed exclusively in Medina not in Mecca. So simply in Medina, they would say that they are Muslims, but in fact they were not. And they would work against the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, they would

00:51:40--> 00:52:19

work against Muslims, they will spread rumors about Muslims, they will try to discourage them from anything that is beneficial spread discord between them in effectively they're working against Islam and Muslims, but they're hiding because they're not powerful enough to come out and say we are against you. So trying to infiltrate and what destroy from within. And because they are not only disbelievers, but disbelievers and liars, and their harm is so great. In one of your cleaner feeder kids swim in a knot that was one of your pain or in the lowest levels of hellfire. If someone were to ask they are disbelievers. What makes them worse than the public disbelievers is the public

00:52:19--> 00:52:45

disbeliever of care for Avaya. You know that he's your enemy. So you can protect yourself from him right in are not going to deceive you. But the hypocrite pretends to be your friend and he knows your secret. But also privately he befriends them disbelievers and he tells them about your weaknesses and he's plotting against you so because of that harm, and because of the added lying that they add to their sin of disbelief says they are in the lowest levels of hellfire.

00:52:46--> 00:52:49

Now let's discuss what Ninja is in

00:52:50--> 00:53:39

any discuss the major and the minor one and they will talk also about gopher and then we'll stop there in sha Allah is origin. So any FARC where does that come from? The word itself. They say that a NIFA Paulo annum comes from a lizard. And the Arabs they know notice a type of lizards that they will dig a home underground. And they will have a public entrance, exit and emergency another one that is an emergency entrance exit that is covered with sand. Nobody knows about it. Right? So if it gets trapped by a predator, or it goes inside their home and Predator traps it from that public exit, it can sneak out from the emergency exit no one no one knows it escapes and runs away. So

00:53:39--> 00:54:24

because that thing you know is hidden. And it's unknown. The Arabs took from that the word knee * for a person who shows something or hide something that is not public. Just like that lizard hides the entrance, the exit and it's not public. So the munafo also heights. So and he felt here that was at the time I also Allah is Allah Islam, but not exclusively, then is that greatness luck where the person disbelieves on the inside, but says I'm a believer on the outside. And that continued after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So whenever Muslims are strong, people will hide their disbelief. They don't want to they want to blend in. They don't want to be known. They don't want to

00:54:24--> 00:55:00

be ostracized. So later on, Muslims will talk about a category that they call Zenaida or xindi. And that word is indeed is borrowed from the Persians. And it indicates Allah Adam, those who pretend to believe in Islam, but they don't believe in it, whether they don't believe in anything except matter around them meaning just time or they believe in Zoroastrian or Persian all the religions, or you know, they believe in anything else, but not Islam. So they pretend to be Muslims, but they are non Muslims. So that hypocrisy

00:55:00--> 00:55:41

See continued after the prophets Allah wa salam well into Islam and continues till today, those who say that there are Muslims and those who say Oh, but really are not. That is the major Nephi. And that is the fact that is in error it occurred in belief, your belief is absolutely corrupt. There is an effect that is minor, or any factor that is in deeds. And that is that in the fact that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said to munafo Lee fell off in the head to the curb, where either were at the UCLA for either to Minahan where you'd leave if he had eaten or in the house on the Fajr. It says the sign of the hypocrite is three the Hatha that when he speaks he lies, what is the

00:55:41--> 00:56:00

word love and he gives a promise he breaks it to either to Minahan if you trust Him, He betrayed that trust. And in another Hadith that adds another one what either house or if he goes into disputed dispute with someone, he transgresses the bounds, right? I transgress the bounds of decency and Islam and he takes it too far.

00:56:02--> 00:56:08

These are the signs of the hypocrites. But does that mean that a person has one two or all of them?

00:56:09--> 00:56:40

That he is a hypocrite? To be forever in hellfire? We say no. Because that is hypocrisy in deeds in actions, not hypocrisy in belief. So a person could be a Muslim, believing in Allah and His Prophet, but has these bad habits. And these bad habits by the way, are what the hypocrites the big hypocrites, the disbelievers used to have in terms of practice. So when you when you examine the hypocrites, and this is why

00:56:41--> 00:57:05

it's important to know these qualities to avoid them. The real hypocrites at the time of Rasul Allah is Allah wa salam, they used to do all of that when they would speak, they would lie. When they make promises to the Prophet, they would break those promises, when they I trusted with something they will find them to, they would betray it, and when they dispute and when they would argue they would upset Allah and

00:57:06--> 00:57:15

cross over his limits. That's how they behave. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, Beware not to look like them in behavior.

00:57:16--> 00:57:20

So when you lie, that's hypocrisy. That's the *.

00:57:21--> 00:57:43

You're not a disbeliever. But that's me. Fuck. And if you make a promise, and you break it intentionally, that sniff up, you break people's trust that sniff when you fight with someone, and start to insult his mother, and his father, and doubt his Islam and spread rumors about him, you know, that's the transgression that we talked about. And some Subhanallah do this in the name of religion,

00:57:45--> 00:58:02

then it to religious people maybe, or to religious, you know, I don't know people fine. Okay. And when they start fighting with each other, you will find that they will cross the limit. And you're this and you're that, and then they will be racist about it. And they will be

00:58:03--> 00:58:05

crossing the limits like that, that's NIFA.

00:58:07--> 00:58:43

So it's not enough for you to want to be really any to say that you're religious, you got to actually show it and you got to actually live this. So all of these things are signs of hypocrisy. The danger of that is that if a person is saturated with all of this, and he has all of these qualities, these good qualities could propel him to be a greater hypocrite in time, he could lose his Iman. So it's not something trivial. You say well, I lie that sniff up. And in fact really, if you think about it, if you think about it, is where the interior or the inside and the outside are in conflict.

00:58:46--> 00:58:51

That's what this hub understood from it. That's from the famous Hadith nataka humbler

00:58:52--> 00:59:01

on one humbler, he said, you know, he goes to the to Abu Bakar and he said, I'm a hypocrite. He says why he says when we are with the prophets of Allah, Selim were one way

00:59:02--> 00:59:45

meaning what very religious, very devout. We see the hereafter as it's right in front of us. But when we go home we forget he's not saying we commit sins, which we forget. I play with my wife I play with my kids I do this take care of my property. My Eman decreases so I'm not like when I'm with him. I'm not exactly like when I'm with my family. He says that is to him what the * based on what linguistic definition of it which is what the difference contradiction between how you are on the outside or somewhere versus how you are on the inside or somewhere else. That discrepancy in conflict is that's the fault of a worker said that I face the same thing. So they went to the

00:59:45--> 01:00:00

prophets of Allah who said them and he said this is not it. Well, I can say I don't know, sir. I mean, if that's your Eman will go up. But you also need what time for your family and time for yourself. So Eman is not going to be the same. So that's not new thought. But the fact is basically

01:00:00--> 01:00:25

clay is true when the inside is different than the outside. So there's there's something that the call who should only thought for sure that is hypocritical and thorough and Betina. Hershey, I will call Belissa. Because yeah, that you will see the body in soda humble. But the heart is anything but humble. They say this horseshoe is what hypocritical because you're just taking care of the outside because people

01:00:27--> 01:00:32

can see the inside is a ruin. Why? Because no one can see it.

01:00:33--> 01:01:18

So that is an alarm bell that sounds that listen, right? Yes. It is not the major hypocrisy, but it is a form of hypocrisy where you don't take care of your insight. And but you do on the outside or you privately somebody and very different publicly, you're devout you have your own your head. You have your hijab, you have your niqab, Masha, Allah, all the linguistic you know, all the Islamic phrases come out from your mouth. Because this is an I'm not saying you gotta be public with your sins. No. You want to do public go public with your sins by the way. Some people might think, oh, I need to be honest with everybody. Yes, I do this and this and this and they consider that to be

01:01:18--> 01:01:55

brave. That's crazy. You want to hide your sins, because if you go public with them, you're not likely to be forgiven for them. You have to hide them. Otherwise, it's an invitation that to everybody. Hey, go do the same thing that I'm doing. No, you want to hide your sins. But as you're hiding your sins you don't want to be two types of person that in public you are this devout Nice Guy nice woman in domestic around people who know you because they're Muslim. When you around non Muslims you become a very different person. So that is a type of hypocrisy in fact, and you have to be afraid of it. And the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu see will delete talking about kufrin charlatan

01:01:55--> 01:02:18

next week. The Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu they were actually afraid of hypocrisy. Right? So a Marathi Allahu Anhu would ask for they have no idea man, am I among the hypocrites of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam named or knew about? If no, it'd be Malika who is a tablet he says a drug to Athena I witnessed 30 of the companions of Muhammad Ali salatu salam, each one of them fears hypocrisy for himself

01:02:19--> 01:03:04

and has an imbecile he says Matt Amina who Illa movement. I mean Maha Fabinho Illa movement, Baraka Luffy Maha Furman who Allah Mohammed Omar Amina hula Munna Africa. He says, If you're afraid of hypocrisy, you are what? A believer. And if you're not afraid of hypocrisy, you're What a hypocrite. Meaning that they sense the belief of the hypocrite is that I could lose my Eman because of my actions. So when Omar was afraid of hypocrisy, or when the Sahaba were afraid of hypocrisy, they were not afraid that at this moment they disbelieved. They knew that they believed, but they said what could happen tomorrow? Based on what my mistakes What if I have committed mistakes that could

01:03:04--> 01:03:06

take away my Eman later on?

01:03:07--> 01:03:32

So they were afraid of hypocrisy for that so the believer fears that fears that you know, my lack of attention in the Salah my like attention in fasting, my like attention, my lack of devotion, when I'm worshiping Allah azza wa jal, what can people know about me versus what I know about self could be hypocrisy, and I could lose my email later on, see you what, be terrified of it. Whereas the hypocrite doesn't care about any of that.

01:03:33--> 01:04:05

So, major hypocrisy minor hypocrisy, the major one is in belief, meaning a person does not believe in Allah as legit but he shows otherwise. The minor hypocrisy is indeed while a person still has Eman, they still believe but sin deeds, and it has these qualities that we talked about. And we said the danger is that that can change later on from minor to minor, from minor to major in sharp. So let me swim so I'll pause here and see if you have any questions and we'll continue inshallah.

01:04:07--> 01:04:24

So next week could be the last one in this in this book or low LM. So if you have ideas about what you want us to do in sha Allah, next, whether immediately or later on in sha Allah do let me know in sha Allah, but a couple of questions before we adjourn for today

01:04:33--> 01:04:33

the textbook

01:04:35--> 01:04:42

because I find many people around us like randomly conversations when something comes up, they introduced their opinion.

01:04:43--> 01:04:46

Well, it doesn't make sense for you to have conversations.

01:04:49--> 01:04:59

So my question to you is how can we find help nurture, obviously ourselves and to the people around us to help to put ourselves in a situation where we really do want to

01:05:04--> 01:05:32

So the question was about, you know, the the comment that I had about how people we shouldn't put our intellect before the tax before the Quran and Sunnah. And he's saying that how in conversations that we have with people around us, they would say, for instance, about felony murder as well, this doesn't make sense to me, this doesn't fit. So in that sense, they're applying their own mind and their own judgment to what is right and what is wrong. So they become the reference. Now in of course, I think, first of all, I don't think that they have adopted

01:05:33--> 01:06:11

a comprehensive system or they have decided that I'm going to put my intellect before the Quran and Sunnah with this as an average Muslim who to him or to her, that things do not make sense in this particular case. And so until it does, right, they're saying, Well, I'm not willing or ready to accept this particular thing and maybe there is another opinion so I don't think that they have adopted a comprehensive intellectual position where intellect comes before the Quran and Sunnah and I think if they were to be questioned about it, is your mind doesn't make your mind come first or the Quran and Sunnah. If they were really pushed a thing they will say the Quran and Sunnah comes

01:06:11--> 01:06:51

before intellect because there are many things that we don't know. But Allah knows, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah to Allah, moon, and many things that you may hate, but it's good for you or the other way around. I think if it's presented to them in that way, they will submit them they say yes, unless a person has absorbed some of the bid as that we've talked about, through listening to other people where they say, my intellect comes first. So I think if we emphasize that, and we tell them, and we keep telling them that Allah Xeljanz judgment exists above and beyond our own comprehension, I think slowly, they'll begin to comprehend that and I think also that you could tell them that in

01:06:51--> 01:07:16

or you know, emphasize that, in particular cases where something does not make sense to you, make sure first of all to investigate Allah's ruling about it before saying it doesn't make sense to me. And once you do that, then you will try to absorb that wisdom that is in it. But be careful not to be a punk those who are casting doubt that Allah's rulings just because at that moment, you did not understand it.

01:07:18--> 01:07:55

I think if we keep doing that, and it will keep emphasizing that I think people if there is good Inshallah, in us all people insha Allah will kind of wake up and say, I don't think that I should talk about this in these matters, or in this type of language, especially that, you know, Allah says Dr. Wu shahada to humble us unknown, you know, their testimony will be written, and they'll be asked about it. So if you're undermining a ruling of Allah xojo, just because you know, it doesn't fit your mind at that moment. So Allah, Allah did me ask you about this, especially that it was was being said in public, if you have issues, you know, privately, you take that to an Imam and you ask,

01:07:55--> 01:08:35

but if you're undermining something that Allah loves, or Allah hates, it's important that you be careful because Allah will ask you about it. So suspend judgment at least, and ask and then learn and then then you'll understand and even even at that moment, when you don't understand we have stories from the Sahaba that tells us that they did not understand something but they submitted to it and then Allah made it possible for them to understand it. So Allah will test you like he tests you physically. Right? Right. How many times you couldn't pray any because Allah tested you with sickness, you couldn't, you know, give sadaqa because Allah tested you with money, you couldn't have

01:08:35--> 01:08:55

enough and sometimes Allah will test your comprehension you will not understand this thing because Allah wants to see will you submit to Him? Or do you submit your intellect? So I think that is a point that we need to pick a piano hammer continuously, especially in an age where you know we have just individual judgment and personal judgment on matters Allah does that

01:08:57--> 01:08:57


01:08:59--> 01:09:00

anything else in sha Allah

01:09:14--> 01:09:15

with the Quran and Sunnah.

01:09:22--> 01:09:22


01:09:24--> 01:09:25

happens happen

01:09:31--> 01:09:59

so he's saying that well, we can add that point is that his point? Radical afek is a comment who says that sometimes those who speak you know, on behalf of Islam, that position that they're advocating is not based on the Quran and Sunnah. But it's in their own opinion. So it's as if they're questioned about it, or in defense, they would make it seem as if you're white attacking Islam, whereas really, you're just, you know, questioning a position that they have that does not have evidence. So it's important, right? There's like a look at it's important that no matter who we are

01:10:00--> 01:10:26

Are we don't represent Islam. It's not I represent all of Islam and everything that I say represents Islam, we should be careful that to say, Allah said His Prophet alayhi salatu salam said the rest of there's no evidence or it's just a matter of his jihad. Be careful just to say that it is that so people know what to take and what not to take on. If they're questioning something, they know that what they're questioning is not the Quran and the Sunnah, medica Luffy, Kazakh alive, they have one more inshallah

01:10:32--> 01:11:09

so what is the cure to the mind on the fact that when somebody sees it in himself, seek Allah's protection from it, and then rid yourself of these qualities, so you find yourself committing some of these qualities, you read yourself from them, and you do the opposite to always speak honestly, you always give a promise and you keep it you will never betray those who trust you. And when you dispute with someone you hold back and you don't transgress the bounds of Allah has his origin. And then also you try to be your city or Allah Ania to try ask ALLAH that they will be equal, or even your city or is better than your Ananya so that you only look good on the outside but you're not on

01:11:09--> 01:11:39

the inside. So try to do something in private that are pleasing to Allah as a surgeon that no one knows about. So that being the law, you're building up your INSA, or the private life so that's equal to or better than the public life or public persona that you have. So with DUA and with that practice insha Allah a person wouldn't you never will never safe but you're further away bidding Allah azza wa jal from it. Product law piquantly Subhanak along with him the shadow Allah Allah Allah.

01:11:40--> 01:11:41

Allah Allah me
