In Alhamdulillah Ahmed who want to stay in or who want to still feel when I owe the villa Himanshu Rory and fusina. See Tia Molina Maja De La Villa Mattila de la mejor little fella hajela Why should Allah Allah illallah wa had the hula sharee Keller Why should you know Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, and in the higher on Hadith Akita La la la hora de de Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Warszawa ohmori Martha to her Baku Lama data in VEDA, wakulla, dottin, la La, la, la, la, la, la La, Tina.
All praise belongs to Allah the Most High, we thank him and we seek His help and aid and we asked him to forgive us. And we seek His refuge from the evil of ourselves and the sins that we commit. Indeed, whomsoever Allah guides, no one can lead us astray and whomsoever Allah leads astray, no one can guide
and a bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah alone, and that Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a slave and messenger. The best of speech is the book of Allah. And the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And the worst of religious matters are those that are innovated and every religious innovation is a bidder. Every bidder is misguidance. And every misguidance is in hellfire. Am I bad?
The messenger sal Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam tells us about an exchange that took place between heaven and hell in the world of the unseen in the hidden world.
Where he says that heaven and hell argued,
digital agenda to one now.
And this is a real exchange and a real argument. It's not a figure of speech. It's not just a story, but it's a real thing that has happened.
What our agenda said,
You're totally new yet oh Looney Arthur olmesartan.
waka Latina yet Whoa, loony algebra una. De Rouen. Having said, those who enter me are the weak or the poor, or the humble.
And Hellfire said those who enter me are the tyrants and the arrogant.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala said, and this exchange between heaven and hell is in competition into the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala and who is closest
and who is rushing to obey Allah subhanho wa Taala and worship Him. So Allah subhanahu wa taala says, college Jenna until rahmati movie came and [???] what call Alina aunty either before the movie came and she it will equally mean comb mill.
He said to Jenna, you are my mercy that I give to whomever I will.
And he said to Hellfire You are my punishment that I punished with whomever I will. And each one of you will have its fill each one of you will be full.
Here we see two types of people with two types of ending and two types of destination.
The first destination is heaven and this is reserved as heaven knows, as Allah subhana wa tada knows for those who are humble for those who are weak for the poor
whereas Hellfire is reserved for those who are arrogant and those who are tyrants.
And in our hotbar today, our focus would be about this distinction and specifically about kid
arrogance and pride
and what it is and where it could take us if we do not fight it.
Allah subhanahu wa tada to confirm this Hadees Allah subhanho wa Taala has said explicitly in the Koran that Hellfire that jahannam is the Abode and then there is the home of the arrogant Elisa fee. Johanna Misawa, Lily moussaka, Burien
isn't there in Johanna and indeed there is isn't there in jahannam a home and abode for those who are arrogant? Allah subhanho wa Taala made it their home
made it their destination.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala made the reward or the punishment for those who are arrogant that they should enter it
Because our station in this life everyone who has been created by Allah subhanho wa Taala is a slave of Allah
and our station in life is this slavery before Allah subhanho wa Taala
but who is unlimited Kabir
who is unmuted okay, but when we refer to a person to a human as multicap, but we call him arrogant hottie
but who is alutech Bear when you refer to him as Almaty cabaret, it would be a statement of phrase. It is Allah subhanho wa Taala that is his name. And as a soldier with a cat there.
Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who deserves this attribute of kibble. What is the meaning of a cat bear, the one who is higher and above any shortcoming any deficiency
he is has risen above it subhanho wa Taala so he is greater than everyone else better than everyone else knows more than anyone else. And because of that He is Allah subhanho wa Taala but this station does not belong to us a lot when He created us did not want us to behave in such a way towards others and specifically towards him.
In the Quran, who is the Muta Kabir, who is the multicap bear in the Quran, Allah subhana wa Taala dismissed out of heaven. ILA a release of our strycova except for a bleach when Allah commanded him. He refused. And he was arrogant. He introduced this arrogance. And because of it, Allah subhana wa Taala cast him out of heaven.
And every nation, which a prophet was sent to when they confronted their Prophet, they confronted their prophet with arrogance. And because of this arrogance, they refuse them because of their arrogance. They refuse the message of Allah subhana wa Taala and instead, they chose hellfire.
What am I doing? First, take a bottle fill out the waka luminesce dummy nakuha when the Prophet comes to add, and this is relevant to many nations on earth today, especially the powerful nations
when I don't first take a bottle fill out the visa you will have
they behaved on this earth. They conducted themselves with arrogance without any right for them to be arrogant. Yes, they were powerful. They were a powerful nation. They were a powerful people physically, they were powerful, but he had the they did not deserve to be arrogant.
And they told and they said minesh domina, who who is more powerful than we are, I will amuro and Allahu Allah, the halaqa whom who said to me whom Pooja Allah subhana wa Taala replies, don't they see, don't they understand that Allah The one who created them is more powerful than they are. And so in relative terms, you are never the most powerful in relative terms. And even in absolute terms, you're never the most powerful, you're never the most intelligent. You're never the most rich because there's always somebody who surpasses you. And ultimately Allah subhana wa Taala surpasses everyone also Hochuli, the Illuminati and above everyone who has knowledge there is someone who has
knowledge more than him until you reach Allah subhanho wa Taala who knows everything.
And when Allah subhanho wa Taala sent Moosa and Harun alayhi wa sallam
to fill out.
What did they do?
And they refused because of arrogance
and minoli Bashara name is Lena
waku Mallanna Abby doon
was stuck about to fill out the data.
They said when Allah subhanho wa Taala sent Moosa and his brother waha Biya Tina was so funny movie that he sent them without anything without any proof to convince the people. Allah sent them with proofs. And not only proves clear manifest proofs.
But what did they say or do not mean was they said Shall we believe to people who are like us humans? Should we believe and submit to humans that are like us, and their people are submissive to us are under our control. It's like sending a message today from a platform a weak nation to our powerful nation. Someone from a Muslim nation coming to a non Muslim nation and he's telling them believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala in the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
They will reply and say but we are more powerful than you are. But we are richer than you are. But we are more advanced than you are. Shall we listen to you and you are beneath us? That is arrogance. Because the truth is the truth no matter where it comes from. arrogance is what stops you from recognizing the truth and following the truth.
Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam says that Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
and Kibriya odd he will lava metal is very feminine as a new item in Houma added to woofing now
it's an attribute of Allah subhana wa Tada.
He says Mike Kip or l Kibriya. Is my upper garment. Something that is you were on top is Korea.
Will album and greatness is my lord Garmin, this is the ISA
so the one who can teach with me in these two things I will throw him in hellfire.
So who is truly the great Allah subhanho wa Taala and who is truly the one who is high
and higher than everyone else it is Allah subhanho wa Taala what is our station?
Is this for us to be humble?
messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also says
in ilaha illa Anta Waldo, Allah has revealed to me Be humble to each other, and before each other, had tell if he hadn't had one if he hadn't Allah had, so that no one will have the right to boast over another, nor will he have the right to try and transgress against another.
This is what you're supposed to do. This is what we're supposed to do humility before each other, not arrogance.
If arrogance is the path of a blease, and arrogance is the path of the enemies of Allah subhanho wa Taala and those who rejected his message, then humility is the path of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and those who follow him till the Day of Judgment.
someone said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
the meaning of which
holla Rasul Allah in the original Hebrew gentle word ot to mean who matara had them or Hebrew near fauconnier hadn't been a word ob shiraki. Now Oh bishop.
He said he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said, Oh prophet of Allah, I love beauty.
I love everything that is beautiful.
And you will have you can see that Allah had given me beauty. He's a handsome man. And he likes it in everything that he owns, even in the type of shoes that he wears. To the extent that I don't like to see somebody else wearing something better than what I have, or having something better than what I have is this
is this arrogance, oh prophet of Allah, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no heilala in Allah. Hi, Jamie on your head boogyman while you have one your rasanya Matty Allah Abdi. He says no, Allah is beautiful.
You stop with the statement. Allah is the most beautiful thing in existence. And where are you to enter heaven and you will need to see Allah subhana wa tada you will forget about everything else that you've seen. Allah is the most beautiful thing. So Allah is beautiful. And he loves everything that is beautiful and he likes to see and loves to see the effects of his bounty on his slave.
Will a Kindle kibra bottle hearty welcome to NASA but arrogance, but fried kibble is the rejection of the truth and looking with contempt at people. And that is the definition of
for you to receive the truth and rejected out of cube
because it has come from somebody else not from you, who may be lower or you think is lower than you are
for you For you to think that you should be right all the time. For you to think that you should never be criticized or you can never be wrong, so you reject the truth.
And the second part of it is to look at people with contempt.
And we will focus on that in sha Allah in the second. Apolo Kohli had our stuff.
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen. Hamdan Catherine Pavan Mubarak and Fie. He will also leave what we're sending him Adora su li Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam
Am I bad?
Looking with contempt or thinking that everybody else's beneath you is definitely is definitely arrogance and pride
and our understanding
and our behavior
should always be corrected based on what Allah Subhana what Allah has revealed to us. And we should always check our hearts and always check our practice to see that they are in conformity with it.
We are, I am better than everybody else, or I am better than this person.
You will not attain a man or you will not be close to Allah subhanho wa Taala until you think that everybody else is better than you are.
That everybody else is better than you are because
you do not know about their sentence, but you know about your own sense.
You may know some stuff about them.
But if you actually line up those two columns, your sins and their sins, you will find that you know more about your sins than yours than theirs.
And we do not know about what goes inside their hearts and what they do when they are in private.
But you know about what you do.
And inside their hearts, they may love Allah Subhana Allah to Allah more than you do, and fear him more than you do. And in private, they may worship Allah subhanho wa Taala more than you do, you do not know any of this, if you assume that you are better than they are.
And this is not something
that we're just suggesting in this football.
This is not something that we're just introducing now that these impressions that you have of people could be wrong, and they could be dead wrong. And they could be actually the opposite of what you think.
As when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam once asked a companion who was sitting beside him.
And he said, What do you think of this man was just passed. And he said, Oh prophet of Allah, it is likely that this man if he speaks, that no one will listen to him.
And that if he goes and seeks a woman in marriage, that they will not give him that woman that is in essence, this man
is not famous. This man is not respected. This man is not a dignified person in the community. He's not well known.
So no one listens to him, they will not give him they will not allow him.
But he said then afterwards, what do you think of this man, another man was just passed by and he said, Oh prophet of Allah, this man. If he speaks, people will listen this man if he goes and seeks a woman in marriage, they will give him and so on.
He is someone in the community, people respect him.
So he said, Sal, Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam to correct his understanding and our understanding from that time till the Day of Judgment.
How the hell you don't mean it out of the mean? Whether he says the first one is better than the Earth fill of the other one.
The community or the people, when they look at the first one, they, they consider him to be better. But in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The comparison is that if you bring this earth, fill it with the second person and his likes, filled with it, and you bring the first person, a single one, he is better than the Earth's fill, filled with the type of the second person. Perception is not right. The impression of the people is not right. That's why this person that you may not be paying attention to this person who may come into the masjid no one may say Salaam to because he's dressed in rags, because he's wearing this or that. In fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
to tell you that it's not always appearances or bash as a marine. Okay, Ashworth about the three Marine, His hair is not comb. He is filled with dust and the Timberline. He's dressed in rags. Imagine him entering into the masjid entering into your house, what attention would you give to him? Zero.
And if he wants to speak and express his opinion about what is happening in the mystery of community or in Islam, who will listen to him? probably know, but if he goes and he wants your daughter in marriage, who will give him
the majority will not
that this person the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said it is likely that there will be such a person. No Oksana Allah He that avara he says we're here to swear upon Allah subhanho wa Taala for a lot to do something Allah would do it. You see the access that he has not an access to a president not an access to a king because they will not listen to him.
The Hadeeth midfoot on beloved web he seeks to enter he'll be denied and to a ministry enter upon the president enter upon a dignitary he will not be allowed. But where he will be allowed is to go to Allah subhana wa to Allah with his words and says Allah do this and Allah subhana wa Taala to honor Him He will do it.
So don't look always at what we are wearing. Don't look always at what we are saying don't look always at who we are celebrating. You imagine and you believe that every single person that you see could be a wedding of Allah subhanho wa Taala closer than you are to him. Then what right would you have to be arrogant? He is better than I am until you believe that you will not have attained a man.
That is Zod as some of them explain. He said you will not have zoomed until you believe that everyone around you that you see is better than you are.
And then you're closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala
what would Allah subhanho wa Taala give you for humility, Allah will raise you
mentor well the idea here. If you are humble, Allah subhana wa Taala will lift you higher. What happens if you are arrogant? Allah subhanho wa Taala will demote you will demote you in this life and it will demote you in the hereafter Allah subhanho wa Taala says, describing a type of people thaneeya lc Helio Linda and Sabina he is
so he's arrogant, funny that he's twisting his neck This is a sign of arrogance.
So that he would misguide and mislead people he will have in this life disgrace. And this is the opposite of his intention. He wants to raise himself on a level of disgrace him and look at all the arrogant people in this world. A lot disgraces them eventually,
when we do Julio malkia mattea double horicon on the Day of Judgment, we will he will take the punishment of the Fire of the burning
on the day of judgment in addition to that, he said sal Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam, yo[???]omo kabiru knio malkia Matic and fairly debris. If you saw the original.
You saw owner Elijah Simeon fugen, la siguiente Johanna Mercado de bolas de Alou whom now anjar use Konami cleaner to Hubble.
He says that the arrogant will be resurrected on the day of judgment and you know, their sizes, the sizes that they'll be in, it's the size of the ants.
The image is the image of people they're humans, but their sizes the size of the ants and the how the Hadith it says your total humaneness people step on them.
That is their punishment, the opposite of what they used to do to raise themselves up above everybody else Allah brings them to their true stature. On the day of judgment, you will be like the ends and people will be stepping on you. And then they will be taken to a prison in jahannam. called bowlers. And they will be burned by the fire of the fire and be and drink from the pulse of the people of Hellfire and the blood and the pulse of the people of hellfire.
This is this the punishment of and we can be wrong.
And we should be terrified when we hear that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said
let's follow Jonathan and Ken if you call behemoth Carlota brought him in, he will not enter heaven, the one who has in his heart the smallest the smallest of arrogance.
So if you have a little bit of arrogance, it will stop you from entering heaven. So you have to fight that you have to combat that. And the way to do this quickly
is to do what first of all seek Allah's protection from arrogance as the prophets of Allah Hari earlier was in them used to say, oh do Billahi min ash shaytani r Rajim he will Hamza he whenever he whenever they okay my call, I seek refuge from the curse of che bonne wilhem z and this is his possession.
When is he and this is his arrogance when he blows in it blows into into your into your heart into your soul arrogance whenever he he and this is they say poetry, poetry, the type of poetry that is evil that is not pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala but this net, this blow of the shaitaan into our hearts and into our souls. This is a cube and the prophets A lot of you seldom used to seek refuge from Allah. Second of all know that if you
are arrogant, you will not be able to follow the truth you will reject it. And Allah subhana wa tada had promised self study for an area tn Lavina Tikka Barona fill out the beginning. I will dismiss from my science and from recognizing them those who are arrogant on the face of this earth without right way yo qulaity you
Come up here and if they see every sign they will not believe in it. And if they see the path of the truth, they will not follow it and then they see the path of false or they will follow it.
That's what happens to the arrogant karateka to one another Erica delicata Allahu Allah Kula called him with a Beringia bot does does Allah subhana wa Taala put a seal on the heart of every multicap Bear arrogant Jabbar tyrant, a seal so if you don't want to put a seal on your heart, and deprive you from the ability of seeing the truth and following the truth, then don't be arrogant.
Second of all, if there's anything that you do anything that you own, anything that you purchase, that would you make you feel arrogant, then don't do it.
Don't purchase it. Don't live in it. As as Mr. Malhotra broke the law and when we have many examples like that when he once rode on a horse, after he wrote down the horse, he said he dismounted and he said khadiyah and aku Okay, yeah de PUE amuro como como. He says, I was about to perish. I was about to perish bringing me a donkey. And he wrote on the donkey, not on the horse. Nothing wrong with the horse is it nothing wrong with owning a beautiful car is there but if when you own it, a car, nice clothing, nice shoes, nice house. It will make you be arrogant and feel that you're better than other people then don't own it better for you. But if you are protected from that, then take it.
It's not hard on.
So Humble yourself, humble yourself and do things with your hands and serve your brothers and serve your sisters as one Sahabi says the aluna fi t he says you say that I am arrogant. What could I keep doing hemara Wallabies to Shimla wahala. To hell up to Shah waka Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Andaman dedica very eminent cube. He says you claim that I'm arrogant. And I have written the donkey. Like, consider the donkey and old car. Right? I've ridden the donkey. And I've dressed this Shimla, a very modest type of dress or clothing were held up to share in a melt
So he says and I heard the prophets A lot of you it was him say the ones are the one who does all of these things is free from arrogance. So how to be free from arrogance. You
accustom yourself, you accustom yourself, to doing things with your hand, things in service of your brothers in service of your sisters, so that you would humble it even though it is like a wild horse that wants to run, but you would humble it and you would bring it back to its place. And if you are free from arrogance, then glad tidings to you. That would you be when the company of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you have and this is part of the medicine to read how he behaved, read how his companions sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also behave and see how humble they are. And then after that, telling me how can you be a Muslim? If you are arrogant in your behavior with your
brother or your sister, because he is a different color? He is darker than you are or he is lighter than you are? Or because he is less educated than you are or he is more educated because arrogance comes both ways. The educated can be arrogant or the less educated could be arrogant in response to the arrogance of the educated the poor could be arrogant and the rich could be arrogant too.
Can you then be arrogant because he's from a different place can you be arrogant doesn't because he doesn't own as much money as you do? Know. And Allah subhana wa tada knows truly who is best and who is not. And until you humble yourself and until you see that everybody around you is better and closer to to Allah except you, then you don't count yourself among the true believers of Allah subhana wa tada and the true followers of Muhammad Sallallahu it it was seldom to ask Allah subhana wa tada the Most High that he protects us from arrogance, while we ask you that you protect us from arrogance, or Allah we ask you that you protect us from arrogance, Allah make us of those who are
humble, while make us of those who are humble. While I make use of those who are humble, Allah make us of those who do not think that they are better than anybody else. And who think that everybody else is better than they are. Allah make us believe that everybody else is better than they are. Will Allah grant us sincere humility, or like give us a true humility or make us of those that you rise above because they are humble, and Allah do not make us of those who do demote because they are arrogant. While we asked you that you establish us upon the truth along we asked you that you establish us upon your book and the Sunnah of your messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and do not
make us of those who innovate or deviate. And Allah we asked you that you grant the Muslims victory against their enemy. Well, I grant Muslims victory against their enemies, while I grant the Muslims victory against their enemies, or like protect us from the plots of the enemies of Islam. Allah
To protect us from the harm of the enemies of Islam, Allah protect us from the harm of the enemies of Islam, or Allah forgive us all of our sins and the sins of the rest of the Muslims.
