salam ala Rasulillah he while early he was happy he was salam. Allah Malema my info No. And finally my LinkedIn I was in a mon Rabbil Alameen. Allah my nada de Chirico, Ashok Rika was Neva retic.
And my bad
as I was just saying, We have reached the point where if not playing Rahim Allah
is saying, and let's now head back. And let's now talk again, about the main focus, the main idea, the thrust of the book, which is the crew da da, da, da Illa de inist. Amara, let's talk about the medicine of the disease that if it were to continue, it would ruin someone's dunya and akhira someone's worldly life and the afterlife.
So that's where we're at. Right? And he is going to be talking here Rahimullah about the effects of sins again, what they bring,
he says, fill in my Emberley. And your LME says we must know that,
that sins and disobedience they are harmful, they bring harm, and that their harm to the heart is like the harm of holes into the bodies.
And axilla Fedorova to fedora with varying degrees of harm, and that from ignore claim Rahimullah. Okay? That phenomena of Abraham Allah
is important to
Because sin A times when we think about it, we think that it just can pass without the consequence.
We don't think of physical things like that.
Now, you can't eat a bad meal and think that you're not going to pay a price for it. Right?
Right. If you're sensitive to something, let's say allergic to it, you know that it's going to cause you
a reaction, you know, that if you're going to eat it, you have to pay a price for it. You're not going to escape it. Right?
You know that if you take poison, what will it do to you,
it will kill you or simply make you ill severely, it, there has to be a consequence. What he's saying here is that the effect of sin to the heart is like the effect of poison to the body, it poisons it, and either could kill it immediately, totally, completely, or gradually, it's like a poison, or it's like an addiction. So it has to have something. So when you think of sin, as harmless, you will commit it. If you think of sin as what Oh, it's okay, I did something, I'll ask for forgiveness, it will go away, then you'll commit it. If you'll think as you're I'm ingesting something, and swallowing something that it will hurt, will damage me. And I don't know if I'll be
able to counteract the effect of this or not.
If you take an antidote to poison, it may work or not. If I see a stuffier, Allah, you're admire stuff for Allah at times is sufficient.
At times, it's insufficient, because it's not sincere. It's not strong. So you still have the sin and its effect even after you've set as the federal law with me, because the same thing like if you take in a medicine after you ingest something harmful, it could work or it may not work, depending on the harm and depending on what you ingested, and when you took it, and your body. So is saying, if you understand that it must affect the heart and the soul and it will poison them, then your reaction will look to them will be different. And then he said, Well, if it Dounia will appear that the children were down in the suburb who bonobo and Mouser is there in this world, anything, any
evil, any illness, except that sin is behind it. So why don't eat whatever evil you find.
Whatever affliction you find, whatever wrong thing you find an injustice you find. Whatever you find, what is behind it. He says, All the evil that you see is caused by sin,
in perceptible ways, and in perceptible ways perceptible ways in in terms of this person is immoral. So is committing that sin. We're here to be moral and ethical and obedient to Allah azza wa jal that sin would not be caused that injustice would not spread. These are perceptible ways, the imperceptible ways is that the consequence of my and your sin, translate sooner or later into a sort of affliction, a sort of a burden, a sort of evil that man if
So self that's imperceptible, you may not be able to follow it. Right? But it's there.
So that's what he's talking about all this evil that you see comes from sin. Then he brings examples from the Quran. So we're going to summarize it, we're not going to read everything.
But he's talking here about Adam and no an ad and the mood and and and so hopefully this helps you anchor yourself in the text so that in case you're lost, you'll find it. So he says, What is the thing that got Adam
and her work from heaven?
Right, the abode of pleasure the upload of happiness, to the abode to the world of sorrow and pain, what got them out?
From this to the it's sin,
from this world, from the from Janna into it's almost opposite, not complete opposite but almost opposite.
So before they did not experience pain or sorrow, there is no fear there is no and now the experience all of that it's sin that God them out. And he says, What is the thing that got Iblees the devil out of the heavenly realm Maluku to summer and he was cast away and he was cursed. One Messiah Hera, who about Tina and transformed hymns inside and his outside into an ugly form, and his inside is uglier than his outs and then his van is outside. And instead of being close to Allah azza wa jal, now he's distant and instead of being included in the Mercy of Allah, now he's cursed. And instead of Jana, his promised hellfire, so to see the trends, what got him out is just sin. And He
says, and instead of the sound, the humming of the glorification of Allah azza wa jal, you know, when you glorify Allah, it's now the humming and the sound of disbelief and shirk, and lies and,
and obscenity, and instead of the clothing of iman, it's the clothing of disbelief. So he said, for her, now Allah Allah He liat, Al hawan, he became extremely insignificant and small in the eyes of Allah azza wa jal, and Allah is angry with him. And instead of being a leader,
in Allah's obedience with the angels of Allah azza wa jal, he became an part in the word here, let me fissara Cova then liquidly fossa, he became like a pimp for every sinner.
Right? Because he leads him to sin. Right?
So instead of leading people into righteousness, just because he wanted to elevate himself, now he's leading every low soul into the disobedience of Allah azza wa jal, he is the one who's doing this, who says, Look at the difference. And he says, What is the thing that drowned most of the people of Earth except sin? And what is the thing that had sent the punishment upon the ad? Until they became like hallowed tree trunks.
And all of their lands were destroyed? And they became an example for everybody who would hear about them or see where they lived, and the people of Thurmond
and who is or what caused, the people have loot to be punished the way that they were punished. And the way you described it, Rahim Allah, he said that their land was carried on the wing of an angel,
all the way until the people or until angels would hear the barking of their dogs on that on that land. And then Allah azza wa jal turned it upside down, and sent it down to earth hurling down to earth and sent rocks after them, pelted them with rocks. So he said that punishment which is two types of punishment was not gathered was not combined, except for people who are acting like that and he says, people who will act similar like that, to that will receive similar punishment. That is, this is among the most severe of punishment a people would receive for their sin.
And he said, people who commit such as sin will deserve similar punishment says what what brought that punishment to them except this and the people of shoe I.
And the people of Pharaoh, who destroyed Pharaoh and his soldiers and their soul. He says their bodies drowned and their souls were taken to hellfire, Harun
hood destroyed him.
generations after he knew who destroyed them, then he said, and who sent upon the Israelites Ben who is our aid who sent upon
them very powerful soldiers and nations. So they went through their lands, and they killed their men.
And they enslaved their children and their woman. And they burnt it down and they stalled and took their money. And that happened to them another time.
And they destroyed them again, and whatever they could control
the level to the ground. Well, hello, what's up buruma aloe vera is who did this to the Israelites? And he says, and who is the one who sent upon them punishment after a punishment. He's still talking about Ben who is sort of ill. Once they're killed, or another one they are
taken into captive into captivity, their lands destroyed. And Allah azza wa jal says, He swore Allah as noted he says, Lay bathin Allah you him you lay your milkier multimedia su Allah. Allah is promised the Israelites he says, Lay up i thinner meaning Wallah, he, labor are thinner by Allah, He will send upon them until the Day of Judgment, those who will make them taste the most severe of punishment. Meaning the more that they disobey Allah azza wa jal and forsake His covenant and commit injustice, Allah azza wa jal descend upon them, those who will make them taste the most severe of all punishment. So that's a promise from ALLAH. So he says, what brought this upon them and they
were what at one point, the best of nations, the best of nations and the turned into that
and the following, which is authentic to Abu Dhabi,
or the Allahu Anhu.
He said, When Cyprus was opened, when the Muslims opened Cyprus in Abu Dhabi, out of the Allahu Anhu is a Sahabi, who witnessed the opening of Cyprus, you know, where Cyprus is right in the Mediterranean. So he says, when that was opened, the Muslims opened it
for Aloha. So it's inhabitants now that they are captives. So they were separated from each other. So they started to cry for each other.
So I would say that he said the person reading this he says, I saw up with the debt, sitting alone crying.
So I said, What about the debt? What makes you cry today? Especially that this is a day that Allah had honored Islam and its people, meaning we have the power now and Allah honored Islam, and those who are carrying the message of Islam. It says, Woe to you yah Juba. how insignificant creation is to Allah azza wa jal when they disobey Him while they are as long as they are.
No while they are a powerful nation and they have power on earth. They've abandoned Allah's commands and Allah azza wa jal made them what you see today.
Now, this is
and sensitive from a Buddha or the Allahu Anhu. Meaning like what he when he saw what he saw, he didn't just simply see, oh, we are victorious, and they are not and we defeated them. And now we get to do with this land whatever we want. It's not this blindness of victory. It's not the arrogance of power. Because he understood something much, much deeper than that. What is the thing that gave you power over them?
It's their sin.
That's what he's saying. Right? So he was very reflective of the Allah No, because he understands that the same thing could happen to us. We're not immune, we don't have a promise from Allah subhanho wa Taala that you will always be powerful and you will always overcome your enemies as Noah says, As long as you are powerful, you're powerful, but when you abandon Allah's commands,
veer away from what he had revealed, your power goes away.
And then from
you know, power or from
dominance, you lose all of that. And then an outside enemy comes and they do whatever they want to you and to your children and they take your land, etc, etc.
So that is a lesson from Abu darda Radi Allahu Anhu that beware of sin because whatever you have, that is a gift from Allah azza wa jal could be taken completely away.
When you lose Allah's protection and Allah's protection, Allah is Allah Zubeidi obedience. All of that could go away. Right?
And there's a hadith of the messenger Sal, Allahu Allah you it was salam that fall that night right next to it, right there.
He said linea Halicarnassus you are the Roman and fusi him
is his people will not perish until they run out of all excuses. Until as if you're the Roman and force him at and it's as if it is saying until they give Allah as the reason to punish them, meaning he doesn't punish them at first offense or second offense or third offense. And he doesn't do that to us. But when Yarlagadda destroyed when you're in the room, yeah, Neela cornuta home.
Meaning they have no more excuses anymore. They sinned once and twice, and third, third times and 10 times, they've been remount or reminded and delayed and reminded and delayed. And they ignored all of these reminders until what? There is no more room for excuses. You can't say, I don't know, I forgot.
I'm going to repent. No, no, though they run out of all excuses. And when that happened, and this is Allah's mercy, then when you run out of all excuses, and you've been reminded and given time and you reflected, and none of that word, then you get destroyed. This is when he said that he is Salatu was Salam Layyah Aliko had the Roman and fusi him meaning how many times did Allah give you reminders? How many times did you hear that this is wrong, as a nation, and as what as an individual, this works for nations as well.
Right? Nations as well.
So a nation could have power Muslim or non Muslim and the abused that power, and they go against Allah as Odin and you begin to see the precedent, the precedent the precedent of
or the antecedents of destruction.
The antecedents of destruction, the antecedents of Allah's Anger, is how it says when you start seeing people hating each other, because we will see.
Look at some Western countries or a lot of Western countries, you start to see that people mistrust each other, they hate each other. When you see inflation, when you see rising prices, when you see erosion and trust when it comes to political leadership, economic leadership, socially, people are fragmented. When you see all of these things happening. These are signs that Allah is sending to people something is wrong, rising prices is a warning.
Right? Otherwise things will be nice and calm and pleasant. Where you see political trouble it can occur, economic trouble, social upheaval and trouble. What is this? This is predictive of a time when, when it comes if we don't stop when it comes. Allah's punishment is going to descend. And it descends a very different ways. Right? A country can collapse economically, socially, civil war. All of these things happen. Where did this come from? You missed all these warnings. Allah was giving you these warnings, the discomfort that people experience in a country even though their country is among the richest in the world, but they're dissatisfied. That's another indication.
the following the following Hadith,
and that is so here.
He said la Salatu was Salam. Ala Valhalla, tiene Moussa if you are Mattia and Muhammad Allah will be either be mean nd he says, When sins become public in my OMA Allah who will engulf them or send upon them a punishment that includes all of them.
When sins are,
what the what? The Republic, not hidden.
What's the difference between a hidden sin and the public sin a hidden sin? You still have Shin there's still here.
You still know what's wrong.
People are not arrogant enough to commit that in public and argue that this is right. No. So there's still good in the OMA. But you go public now with it. You're brazen. Nothing is wrong with it. And people don't talk against it. The Herat is Allah will send a punishment that includes all of them. So they said O Messenger of Allah. Won't there be some righteous people among them that he said yes. He says what happens to them He says, You see him ah, stubbornness. They're gonna face what faces everybody else what everybody else faces through Maya Sirona
Elon Musk Fiat Amin, Allah he will read one and then they will turn into or be moved into Allah's forgiveness and His pleasure.
But the punishment when it descends, it does not distinguish, right?
Have you seen a selective earthquake
that takes this house but not that house a selective flood, a selective economic hardship when it descends.
It includes what
But then the hope that we have is that if you were righteous in terms of how you lived and righteous in terms of how you spoke, and expressed displeasure
at the sins that have been that are committed, our hope is that if we die with everybody else, is that we ALLAH, we are forgiven by Allah. And Allah will be pleased with us. But the punishment is the punishment, it dissents.
So this is what he said earlier, his Salatu was Salam. Because if no one wants to tell you, you think sin has no consequence, there's no bill to be paid for all of this wrong that is being committed, either by you as an individual or by this particular group, or by this particular nation, or by these, this particular group of nations, when they commit that you think that they're not going to pay a price for it, there is a price and the more injustice you see. And the more sin that you see, the more that it piles up, the more that you they're assigning
Like their end.
He said also, he recorded a lesson, and this would follows is weak. But we'll just mention it because there's some benefit in it. But in Marasi, Lil Hassan, one of the
reports from Al Hasan from the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And it's called motorcyle, because the stabbing did not hear from the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. So there is a gap which makes that narration weak.
So though it's weak, we'll translate it, there's some benefit in it. He said, that he said, who had Omata dilla. He will, if he can, if he says this OMA will continue to be under Allah's protection. As long as it scholars do not support its rulers, meaning, you understand here, repression, oppressive rulers, and as long as it's righteous Do not praise, it's wicked ones. And as long as it's righteous ones are not being insulted by its wicked ones. But if they do this, if they do all of that, then Allah Zoda will lift his hand meaning take his protection away from them, and then we'll send tyrants at them, and they will punish them, right with all sorts of punishment and then
Allah has the tools and Poverty and need upon them. So that this narration, although it is weak, the general idea in it is what the same idea that we have heard before, which is that you are going to be continued to be protected by Allah azza wa jal, as long as you are righteous. If you remove that, then you lose Allah's protection. And when you lose Allah's protection, you get punishment from left and right, you're on your own then
the following Hadith we've explained before, and we've mentioned that scholars disagree, some say it's weak, some say it's not, but the idea in it is sound. It's where the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is, has said, Indeed, a person will be denied provision because of a sin that they commit. So again, ignore claim is trying to have you understand because sometimes when you tell a person,
you know what, there's a punishment in the earth era.
They're not going to care about it as much, but you tell him if you commit that sin, you're not going to be hired, not going to find a job, you're not going to be able to afford rent, right? You're not going to get that promotion. That scares you. Right? Because it's immediate.
Right? And that scares us because
why? Because we love the dunya a lot more than the ACA, so we'd be more worried about the dunya than the airfield. So I may not stop if you tell me about heaven and hell and all these say bad deeds, but if you tell me that, I will not be hired if I continue to sin like this, I will not find the job that serious.
So it's important to remember this hadith when you are trying to commit a sin, you may lose your job.
Your boss may stop liking you and fire you or penalize you. Right? You may go into debt, not be able to pay that debt.
So if you're worried about financial hardship, you have to be worried about sin as well.
And the following Hadith
Subhan Allah that's a hadith that we
repeat, and we should keep repeating the famous Manjusha cuenta de da de como uma moment Coolio. So he said that a Salatu was Salam. He says nations are about to
swarm upon you
get after you from every direction from every horizon as people gather around a dish to eat, right? That's how they will rush at you, to attack you to take what you have. Just like people are attacking a big plate of food.
So they said O Messenger of Allah, our view are with you at that time. Are we few at that time because they remember a time when they were few in number. And they were worried about their faith because of that, how many are we in Makkah? How many are we in Medina? So he's saying if this is going to happen to us, is it because we are so few in numbers that that's what it emboldens them to do all of this? The amazing answer that we keep getting from this hadith every time we repeat it is that no you're not few. In number. You're there's a lot of you, you would like the form of the sea, you'd like the bubbles of the sea, the bubbles on the waves of the sea. There's so so many because
think of how many bubbles you see so many of you, but what I cannot come up with water is saved right like the bubbles of the sea or empty or without substance so Allah but without substance. And he says students are on muhabba to mean Adobe, Adobe COMM He says the fear that your enemy had had for you will be taken away from their hearts, they will not fear you, they will not respect you, like they used to
wear you out of your blue be human won. And their weakness will be placed into your hearts. They said O Messenger of Allah, what is this Allah and he says loving the dunya and hating death.
So internally, in the heart, you are weak, which makes you in your numbers weak, even though there's a lot of us, okay?
And how and why did your enemy fear you before?
It's because of Allah has.
Right? wasn't about number was about Allah azza wa jal. It is something miraculous that Allah azza wa jal puts in the heart of the enemy.
So they used to be afraid of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, not just not because he did anything?
Not because he did anything.
But because Allah put it there
any a person
who does Zootopia and there is Jin, someone's body, right? The more righteous they are,
the more successful
that rookie is wiser
because the Djinn will be afraid of them.
They will do anything yet. They're just reading the same as you and I read
but the gin when he senses them coming, he knows somebody different is coming.
And Allah azza wa jal gives what they say in their due out power. So the Jin tremble when they see that person.
Like with Umar Radi Allahu anhu, right?
The jinn will take what
a different road that his robe,
even they're passing by him is difficult. Where did that come from?
He has no physical power over the jinn. But what who gives him power?
Allah has Odin because of his obedience of Allah as of June so it's the same thing.
Right? Allah gives them but that believers power over the non believers simply by fearing them. They fear them.
Again, without them doing anything. They just fear that they feel intimidated by them, that they can handle them, that they cannot defeat them. And that is in itself a NEMA from Allah subhanho wa taala. But that power comes from Allah xojo Not through threats, what Allah has.
That's is the difference. That's why a prophet of the prophets of Allah as though didn't like no halaya Salam could stand in front of his people. And he said, if you are too tired of my Dawa, and whatever I'm giving to you, then fine plot against me gather all of your force gather all of your men plot and execute your pot. Plot. I'm standing right here.
In front of you do it if you can,
and they can't
kill one man.
Right? The where does the strength come from not only the strength of the person being able to say this, you cannot harm me unless Allah wills it. But the fact that they don't even try to harm him.
So you understand when he said that he is salatu salam that your enemies will not respect your fear you anymore. It's because we don't have the thing that creates that respect. And that respect is what he talked about. So Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam that you love the dunya way too much and you hate death and that comes to not loving Allah xojo Not being close to him. See, you love Allah and you fear Allah, then you have the power. If you have the power, then no one can defeat you.
The following Hadith we've explained about the people who backed by people.
So we're not going to repeat that again.
The following hadith
is weak. But again, because there's some benefit in it, explain what that weak hadith is trying to teach us.
So it is said that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam said and again this is a weak Hadith Yeah. Hello, trophy aphorism. Aniko Manya Tirana dunya deen is that there will be at the end of time people who will seek the dunya using religion, meaning deceptively, they want the dunya but then masquerade as religious use religion to get the dunya and they will put on cloaks for people that the cloaks of sheep very soft, and their tongues will be sweeter than sugar, but their hearts will be the hearts of wolves. Meaning they pretend to be what righteous, nice and close to Allah azza wa jal but on the inside, they're wolves. They're hypocrites. Then Allah azza wa jal says the ukwu
Abeokuta Runa. Allah yesterday on he says,
Are they brave enough? To go against me? Right? Who do we Who do they think I am I for them to go against me? And are they deluded about me? Meaning do they think that they can deceive me, I swear by myself, I will send upon them a fitna confusion, a test that will leave the wise among them clueless.
The wise among them, will find no answer to it. So what this is telling us is to be aware of right. And again, this is weak, but is to be aware of those who seek the earth era or those who seek the dunya. But they use the Athena for it. And it's not enough for you to be deceived by someone's appearance. Or if it is us. It is highly problematic with Allah azza wa jal for us to be or to pretend to be people that we are not. If you want the dunya be honest about it. If you want the earth here, I'll be honest about it. But don't seek the dunya through the ASHA, to pretend to be righteous, in order to be praised, in order to be powerful, in order to be liked. Right?
So, Allah Azza did is saying, is this how you behave? And do you think that you can deceive me, I'll send upon you because of your sin, a calamity that will leave you even if you are the wisest. We'll leave you confused. You don't know how the exit you don't know how to deal with it.
The following also it's an authority now.
And it's weak.
So it is said that Ali or the Allahu Anhu said he says there is going to come a time when the only thing that will be left of Islam is its name and the only thing will be left of the Quran. It's the letters written letters. By meaning there is a name but no substance. The Quran is there in letter, but people don't follow it. People don't understand it. He says there masajid are full, but there is no guidance in them. Right. And their scholars will be among the worst on the face of this earth. Fitna comes from them and goes back to them. We're not at that stage. hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen. Right. That could be if it's authentic, but it's not be talking about a time that is yet to come.
But the idea there is that it's not enough again, to have a decorated right Haoran with the most beautiful calligraphy but you don't read it. It's not enough, you know, to put on the best of thought that you have and headcovering for men, or the best of hijab, but there's nothing on the
insight you're covering something that is empty. It's not enough just to come to the masjid and coming to the masjid is beautiful. But then what are you doing in the house of Allah assorted as well? If you come to the house of Allah and you're backbiting then what are you doing? You're mocking people then what are you doing? That has to be a place of guidance. Right has to be a place of proximity to Allah subhanho wa Taala not a place where the shaytaan right is invited
of the labor that was owed, and that is authentic. So this is good. hamdulillah Abdullah Abdullah Massoud said that either Valhalla Xena or rebirth your Korea or the in Allahu Behala Kia it says if Xena fornication adultery, and then the Riba
interest in usury, right, if they become apparent widespread in a town that Allah has xojo will give permission for it to be destroyed.
So you understand these two things.
Right? Zina and Reba
are two causes for a destruction of a town or a nation.
Special, especially what, especially if that nation knows Allah azza wa jal, especially if it's a Muslim nation, because Allah azza wa jal could extend the life of a non Muslim nation because they don't know as much as we do. Right. But when you and I we know, and we go against Allah azza wa jal, and then in a Muslim nation, you find that people are dealing in riba left and right and there is no restriction,
no regret, no shame. And then also, Zina is widespread, though, then you understand that even if that nation is prosperous now, now you have the foresight to see, this is not going to continue.
They're gonna face trouble in 510 years from now, something bad is happening. You could smell it. How could you smell it? Because you know, this, and there's a hadith is going to come that is going to support it, but you could smell it, it's coming. That's where you could see beyond the veil, the veil is lifted. You could now see, beyond economic and social forecasts beyond flattery. Now you can see because Muhammad salallahu Salam told you, now you can see. So if you worry about your country, if you worry about your people, if you worry about yourself, you wouldn't do this, because that's the cause of destruction of an entire nation. Right.
is weak. So it's an it's an it's a tradition, so let's just skip it because the one that follows is the thing that deserves our attention. It's Hadith.
And in it,
Abdullah Abdullah Ahmad, taba, the Allahu anhu, he said, I was the 10 person, the 10th, among a group of mohajir own, the immigrants sitting next to the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And he said, or immigrants, Yama, Sharon Maha Jadine. He says, Five things. I seek Allah's protection that you should ever witness them, meaning I hope and I asked Allah that you do not witness those five things. He says when alpha hisher This is Zina becomes public in a people.
And they go public with it's widespread, and they go public with it, Allah who will test them with diseases and with plagues that was not previously known to them. So that's the first what was a hormonal Michaella will be done. If people play with their scale and measurements. It's deficient when they want it and they increase it when they want it. Allah will test them with famine, and severity and hardship of living, and the injustice of the rulers. So that's a second. And as if people leases the third they would hold their Zika Allah will will hold rain from the sky and they will only receive it because of animals if not, they will not receive that rain.
And this is a people do not break their promises, meaning a treaty between them and others. It's as if they break those promises. Allah will send upon them an enemy, an outsider enemy, and he will take some of what they have
some of what they own. And he says if the rulers do not apply what Allah had revealed in his book, Allah azza wa jal will cause them to hurt each other.
Meaning that people will fragment and divide what you Alaba unbeknown their harm will be against each other.
And all of these things and this is so hey, this hadith Asahi, all of these things are the consequence of sins and all of these things are physical, worldly punishment before the day of judgment. For us to understand that when Allah says, or in the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said
Avoid it is a reason why you should be avoided. Because once you deposit this in the dunya, you've disrupted the duniya.
Machine, think of this world as a machine running.
And then you throw something, a wrench into that machine. And then some parts of it stopped working.
So why is it not working? Where's the rain?
Why is there injustice because you threw something there, and that will stop turning.
And you need to remove it. So here the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam is telling us about the things that if they happen, this is what you're going to see. So if you go public with alpha hisher,
let's call it haram, sexual deeds, sexual relations that should include everything right?
Xena, which is between a man and a woman, and other things as
anything that is haram of sexual relations, you go public with it. The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He says, he said that you're going to see plagues and diseases spread among you that you did not see before.
Well, where they come from the cross from animals into you, where they come from, they,
they evolve, they mutate, but you're gonna see them.
So don't say where did this come from.
Or you understand that there's a cos. Now the kuffaar, the non Muslims that disbelievers are blind, they're not going to see you.
And if you tell them because of sin, they'll make fun of you.
But you still have to tell them that it's because of sin because he still have to convey that message to them. It's because of what our hands have done.
This is it.
And that is divine judgment. Whether you like it or not, it doesn't really matter. But you have to tell them what Allah wants them to hear. It's divine judgment. And if you stop, this thing will stop. So that's the first, right. The second is that if you play with the scale,
right, if you mismanage right how you sell and have you buy if you cheat. Then these prophets Allah, Allah was salam. He says in the you will experience famine, and experience severe living. So you play with it's here with you, because you think you're making yourself rich or richer, Allah takes it away from you, there will be no Baraka in your life anymore. And the third is that you deny your Zika you stop receiving rain.
And funny thing, Subhan Allah right, this is when you understand that we become less valuable than animals. It's God Allah is only sends rain because of them.
Like you don't deserve it, you understand? You don't deserve it. But the animals do some sending rain for them, not for you. This is how we have demeaned ourselves when we go against Allah as though did he become less than an animal
hamdulillah for the animals, right to take care of them, right, because otherwise, a lot of the things that we see we may not see.
Then also he said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If you betray your covenant with people, right, and he takes something from them, Allah will send upon you, people will take things from you.
So your injustice will not go unpunished. Has to Subhanallah that's divine judgment. Okay. People talk about karma, right? If you do this, you'll do that. Before that we don't need it here is if you do this, you'll see that injustice you will see its consequence. And then he also said la salatu salam, the last one. It says, if their leaders do not apply the book of Allah azza wa jal, that will cause such hatred among people that they will start harming each other, hating each other.
who say, Well, I have no control over the leaders, how do I force them to apply the Sharia of Allah as origin?
How could you force them
you know, how you start applying it in yourself?
Because if I you and him and him and she all of us start applying the Sharia. And when somebody asks us to go against it, we say no, you guess what? There's no room for anything else
than the room then then the road is ready for the application of the Sharia and the book of Allah as origin. But as long as I don't apply it in myself, and he and she, they don't. How is it going to be applied from the top?
So consequences right.
the following Hadith right is weak, but there is benefit
In it, there's benefit in it.
So it is this It is said in this hadith. He said inner man Kana publikum can either amulet amulet at home be healthy deja Hoonah heat the era. It says,
among the people who came before you, when a person would commit a sin and he wants to show you a salatu salam, what they did wrong. When a person would commit a sin, someone would come to remind him, but his reminder would be insufficient to criticize him, but his criticism will be insufficient. It's not strong enough. It's not resolute. Because he says, because tomorrow he will sit with him and he'll eat and drink.
As if he did not see him committing a sin yesterday, meaning he saw him commit a sin. He comes and tells him You know, is shy is not very strong and you shouldn't be doing this and this and that and that be it But tomorrow, though this person did not repent did not compensate for what he has done. He meets him and he greets him and he smiles in his face and he eats and he drinks with him as if nothing has happened. He says within what Allah saw that from them, Baba Kobe Hello We bow to him Baba. He made them hate each other. He made them enemies of each other. Then he cursed them on the tongue of Deadwood and a sub memoriam Ali Hema Salaam. So we were talking a bit here about the
Israelites been Surah e, then it can be muscle what can we add to do and this is because of the trends transgression and their sins. And then he said, Allah is Salatu was Salam, I swear by the one who has Mohamed Salah in his hand. Either you're gonna command what is good for bid what is evil, and stop the foolish from doing their foolishness and force them to do what is right, or Allah who will make you hate each other and will curse you like he cursed them.
Meaning this needs to be done. And that's that idea there though this is a weak hadith is sound.
Meaning is saying that when we saw eel one of the reasons that caused their downfall and being cursed by Allah zodion Is that they can lay it in a hole now among cutting through Allah says it in the Quran. Can you lay
out when they commit an evil, they don't forbid each other from doing that evil which is till today.
Till today, you see the evil that they're committing. They don't tell each other stuff
that this is haram. This is inhumane. This is beyond this scale. They don't tell each other stuff. Somebody has to tell them from the outside Hey, stop, this is wrong. They don't tell each other stuff.
So they lack that ability. So Allah curse them because of this, and divided them and planted hatred among among each other, between themselves because of it. So that's why he said that he is Salatu was Salam. He says no. You're gonna command evil command good forbid evil, stop the foolish and forced them to do what is right, or Allah will curse you like he did to them.
So consequence, right? Even that, and I would have no other foreigner here and then monka you see something wrong, and he decided not to say something, then we become all complicit in it. And it gains strength. And then the righteous become weaker. And the wicked by nature, right? They are emboldened, right, they are bold, the reason right? They become stronger and stronger.
The following is an author. And it's an Israelite, I thought meaning from the people of the book, but again, the spirit of it is true and authentic. And it's authentic to the person who had narrated that.
So Allah as though did it is said that Allah azza wa jal revealed to Joshua, son of Manjusha of noon.
Who was the successor of Musa alayhis salam, and Willow LM? No, he was a prophet.
He says, I'm going to destroy from your people killed from your people. 40,000 righteous ones, and 60,000 unrighteous wicked once a Cydia Allah, this is the these are the wicked ones meaning I understand but why the righteous he says in the home lemme of who you are. Can you work you do in a homo? You're sure you share Hebrew in a home. He says they did not become angry because I was angry and they continue to eat with them and drink with them.
So you're saying that I'm going to kill from your people, how many 100,000 They're going to die
60 wicked ones, sinful ones, and 40 righteous ones. So your Allah Okay, the righteous mean the wicked Take him away.
Take him away, but what did the righteous do? What was their sin? He said they did not become angry when I became angry. Meaning when they saw that sin, it didn't cause any anger and they continue to be friends with them.
they distance themselves from them. He says, For that they deserve this.
And the following and we'll be we'll just take two more. And then that's it in sha Allah and they're all the same. And it's again an Israelite tradition, but with a sound message. Allah azza wa jal, he said, Allah sent to angels to a town, and he said, Destroy it. And everybody that is in it. So when they went there, they found in IT person standing and praying in a masjid. So they came back and they say, Allah, we found in that town, a person in the midst of praying and standing, standing and praying. He said, subhanho wa taala. No, destroy it and destroy him with it. He never got angry before my sake.
Like this village is wicked, right? That's that much we understand. So the angels go on. They want to see who's in it because they're about to destroy it. But then all of a sudden, they notice there's a masjid. And inside the message is someone who's righteous and he's standing and he's in Salah.
Right? So they go back to Allah ascertain, what about this man?
Who is the exception? Who is different? Why do we spare him? Do we leave him? Do we spare the entire village and then Allah azza wa jal says, No, destroy all of it and destroy him with it. Because he what?
never stood up and said, This is wrong.
So you understand that a bad day is not enough for it to be secluded in a masjid? Yes, there's nothing left for you to do.
Then you could seclude yourself. But Allah Zota will hold you responsible for the fact that you could say something and you couldn't say and you didn't say it. You could, but you didn't. And you think that you're a bad or is simply praying and fasting? And that is it. That is insufficient.
So that brings on the punishment of Allah xojo Even though you've memorized the entire Quran, and you do TM,
and the punishment of Allah me dissent, because he didn't say a thing.
And the last one similar to it, is when he said
that an angel was commanded to destroy a town. So he said he ought to be in a fearful land and elaborate, he says, in that town, there is this so and so who is a worshipper of yours? Then Allah azza wa jal revealed to that angel he says, begin with him.
Right? That that's the extra in this tradition, not just destroy him. Know if you want to destroy that town, you begin with him, he never for one minute was angry for my sake.
So you understand that, that deficiency of iman when a person is not angry for Allah sake,
because if you love Allah azza wa jal, it's natural for you to love what he loves. Right?
And it's natural for you to hate what he hates. So if you see someone opposing Allah azza wa jal,
okay publicly, and you don't become angry, then there is something wrong with your love for Allah azza wa jal and there is something wrong with our iman.
That's why he said Subhana Allah to Allah, Oh, you want to destroy you begin with him, because he should have known better and he should have done better. So imagine here the destruction of Allah as the just that some of what ignorant am Rahim Allah wants to say, which is what? If you do something wrong?
deluded. By Allah's mercy.
Don't be confused by Allah's Mercy thinking that you're fine. Allah keeps giving you time and excuses. Allah keeps delaying you so that you could repent, but don't be deluded by it. Because once Allah decides that you ran out of time ran out of excuses, then the punishment will descend. And that is true for people and that is true for nations as well. For nations, it may take a little longer, gets more gets more complicated. And Allah azza wa jal is the one who decides, but you could get a smell of it, that it's coming. When you see their power sliding when you see there are internal strife. When you see the loss of love and the loss of trust, when you see them committing
more and more of the sins of Allah as ODL and not paying attention to what is this doing to them
or not worried about it, you understand that this is in itself a punishment from Allah as such.
So we stop here when Allah azza wa jal
and let me know if you have questions or things to add. And again, Inshallah, I hope everybody was able to kind of find where we were out in the book and if not a
Just let me know in sha Allah so maybe I'd be able to help
but also forcing them to do what's right
is worried in the
Photoshop a lot with the gentleman to
and sort of sort of a
no, Zack Allah here. So the question here is that how do you reconcile with the statement here there was mentioned in that weak Hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, similar to Toluna, home and ad hoc piatra meaning that you will force them to follow the truth. And I as various eyes of the Quran, where Allah azza wa jal says that there is no compulsion in religion.
That truth is manifest and falsehoods did manifest, that you have no power over them to force them to do this. And how do you reconcile this and that, so, of course, you have no power to compel anyone. So all the eyes that you quoted, right, you have no power to compel anyone to accept Islam, or to accept the right faith. And you shouldn't, you shouldn't, there's no compulsion, you can come to somebody and say, accept Islam, or else that's not up to you, and you can't force them. So it has to be a voluntary acceptance of Islam. But this compulsion that we're talking about in the Hadith, and again, it's a weak Hadith, but anyway, still, the meaning is sound. The compulsion that we are
talking about is a compulsion to do the right thing. And avoid evil within the framework that you have on earth. Where every state compels its citizens, every state compels its citizens to do what is right. Or else, we punish you. Right? You're not going to kill anybody. I'm forcing you, but why? Because I'm punishing you. If you don't, and you're not going to steal, you're not going to rape and you're not going to cheat. And and and so in Islam, in addition to these things, we say to a person, you're not gonna commit Zina. It's not up to you. If you do, we'll punish you. This is forcing them right. And you're not going to drink alcohol if we do if you do, we'll punish you. Now this is for
Right? And for some everybody else who's around you. So this is the forcing that our total now home meaning this is haram, pay a consequence for you'll pay a price
but no acceptance of faith. Nobody is supposed to force anybody else. So I hope inshallah that clarifies it. Batticaloa
The first one is, how can we like? What would be your advice for us to commend people wisely because sometimes just jumping in and being very harsh, or it can be very off putting to people so? Zack Okay, so it's a good question you so what is what is the best way to give advice to people commanding good and forbidding evil, because sometimes if you're overzealous and to to twosie, gastic, and you just want to do the right thing, as he said, a lot of good luck, it could be very off putting can turn people away from the right path from Islam from the Sunnah, because of the way that we express it. So obviously, right, you are supposed to command good in the best of ways, and
forbid evil in the best of ways because you're at your intention should not be, I just want to speak, your intention should be I want that person to accept that from me. I want him to follow the truth, I want him to be saved. So if I go and yell at him, and he hates what I'm saying, I haven't done anybody any favors.
But rather, I should think about what is the best way for me to approach this person and communicate whatever I want to communicate to him so that he will accept it from me. So sometimes it means somebody else talks to him, but not me. Some but sometimes it means I write him a note, a very nice note and I hand it to him or I send it to him so that it's not confrontational. Sometimes it means that I don't say a thing at this moment.
Sometimes it means that at this moment, I don't say a thing because this person is not ready. And I need to address other things that have greater importance and priority before I talk about these things. Right. So I addressed Salah before hijab
I address Salah before fasting.
That's how you start with the most important of things, I get to know him before I get to talk to him. So it has to be in the best of ways, but the intention is, this is wrong and something needs to be done about this. So let me think about how to fix it. So as long as you're on the path of fixing it, you're good inshallah. So Zack Allah, he should be done wisely.
We have to increase our loving to remove this weakness. So my question is, practically what should we focus on to increase our loving
so what can we do practically to increase our love for Allah subhanho wa taala. So very briefly, very briefly, is to obey Him subhanho wa Taala when it comes to the obligations, so do your obligations and stay away from the Haram
then engage into the recommended acts as an extra level an extra step that would connect you deeper to Allah subhanho wa taala.
Do your ABA with intention, while conscious of what you're doing and why you're doing it.
Increase your reading of the Quran and Dhikr of Allah subhanho wa Taala that if you want some things very simple that you want to do, just to start, read more of the book of Allah as xojo like a lot more than just not like a one tire or two. But one more page two more pages, three more pages. 10 more pages, read more of the book of Allah azza wa jal keep reading and try to understand what your what Allah is saying to you. And then do more of the Dhikr of Allah azza wa jal stuck for Allah Subhana Allah, it will take a time until it becomes a habit until you find a way of doing it, but find a way of doing it. But if you just want one thing, okay, the easiest thing, the book of Allah
is just reading them. And that will open up for you and for all of us other doors, where we would earn the love of Allah as though didn't find it. Right. So let's just kind of restrict it now to read more of the book of Allah as of June and let's see how that helps us be in the last.
Anyone else has something I think you just have
it says regarding the person who manifests righteousness at the outside and their heart is like a wolf. How can we recognize it? You recognize it with the light of iman. Right? Can a person could lie but they cannot lie all the time. So if someone is acting as a hypocrite, if you have knowledge, and if you have duck, what sooner or later you will see them because something has to give. You can't pretend all the time. He will they will give themselves away well at alpha Nomvula Haneul Cole, he said to his Prophet alayhi salatu salam you will know them.
I say he said Why don't the shareholder already NACA home fell out of the home busy now what are the elephant Nomvula annual code. It says if we wish we would show them to you. And you will know them by by their appearance, meaning the hypocrites if we wish we would show them to you or Muhammad Ali is salatu salam you know them by how they look. But he says well Atari fan Nomvula annual call you'll know them and how they speak how they twist what they say. So if you have if you have the oil and you have the taqwa which comes from the EBA Allah Zeldin will not let you be confused by them. You will see them right. So that's what I can say. You will know them and you will see them. If it's
confusing just like any other fitna. If it's confusing, it's confusing because we're lacking something. Sometimes it's knowledge and sometimes it's Taqwa. But if you have both, not as many fitness will be confusing, right? So that's how long
Okay, yeah, so the
not just an issue.
Also, if a particular household, the sin becomes dominant and apparent there are no one stops it? Nothing, nothing stops you from saying yes, that is the same thing, right? Because it's same thing for a person. If sin becomes dominant in that person, he gets punished if the household becomes dominant, they get punished. And the same thing for a nation as well. Right? Yeah.
to fix this. How do we balance any
tension that is not being just as people?
Know, so how do we balance that if we're giving, if we're giving an entrepreneur role for Nike and Iluka, and we said the intention shouldn't be just simply to speak, but rather to fix the person, whereas, in Surah Telara, half the people who
manipulated the commands of Allah azza wa jal, the Israelites who commanded manipulated the commands of Allah azza wa jal, then Allah said, you know, and then they were talking to those who spoke against them. Why do you give advice to people, that what Allah is going to destroy Accardo Madeira toninato Become what are alone into, they say, as an excuse before Allah has voted, and perhaps they will listen, and they will stop. So he says here the spoke simply so that they spoke, we say yes. What I meant by don't speak simply because I just want to talk, I want to express my emotions, I'm emotional. So I just want to say something not paying attention to there's always a consequence to
what you say. And the goal of it should always be on your mind, then why are you doing it to help somebody, not just simply for me to hear myself talking, but the other people are doing what when they spoke, they said, Allah is watching us. And if we say nothing to them, then we be included in that punishment. So let us say something to them, even if they're not going to listen, perhaps Allah azza wa jal will not will exclude us from that punishment. So a person could say that to save himself. Alright, so that what they're mentioning is a particular circumstance where you expect the person not to listen to.
And you'll say to yourself, should I still say something or not? And you're afraid that if you don't say a thing, you're still responsible? So you say it for Allah azza wa jal to see that you've done your best, even though they may not listen to you. Right. But the server thing that we're talking about here, is you still have hope in fixing the other. And you're still seeking the best way of fixing them. Right.
So there's just one more thing here that I have? And then I'm sure I'll read it, answer it and will be gone.
So as mentioned, you spoke about how people use the dunya. For people like them, how can we use the dunya to better ourselves for the airfare.
So how we use the dunya, to better ourselves for the Accra, if you understand that this dunya will not last you. And that the Acura is the only thing that stays and the way that you could purchase the Acura is through what you earn in the dunya. Then you'll say to yourself, let me spend at least some of this here, for the sake of that there. Then you ask yourself when you want to do anything, and why am I studying? Why am I working? It's never too late, by the way to say that. Even if you have a job, why am I going to work? Just simply because I have to. Why not make it because I want to because Allah loves it.
Because I earn a living I saved myself from haram, I save my set family from haram I'm earning 100 Why not making like that? Why not make it for the sake of sadaqa
so you look at what you're doing, you have a business, why does this business open? Because I could do a b c and d that please Allah Xeljanz so put that in.
Right? Why do you exercise?
If you exercise, right? Why do you exercise just simply because I want to be fit? I want to strengthen you know, I want to extend my life. Yeah, okay, fine. But what why not make it also for the sake of Allah as it is. So this body of mine could be fit for pleasing Allah Oz, or whatever that pleasure might be helping somebody standing up in Salah, protecting the innocent, whatever it might be. So inject a good
intention behind everything in the dunya that you're doing. And know that when you do this, Allah rewards you for it, and you're still doing it as usual, but Allah rewards you for it. So when you make the Athleta important, then you can give some of the dunya for it. And when you start doing some of that, you can do more of it. And then more of it until such a time when you can give,
give away all of the dunya for the sake of the alpha and that's what you had the is to be die and to die as a martyr is what to give it all up for Allah azza wa jal so this is an idea. And May Allah guide us into more and better ideas to help us in sha Allah.
become people who seek the hero rather than the dunya. I still have one more by the way, you guys could leave. I don't want to like hold you. But let me just answer this question. How should we deal with a narcissistic spouse? Okay.
Narcissistic spouse, when it has reached a limit, although it was through the test and
through a test in marriage,
it was through. It was through the test in marriage that led to knowing the love of Allah as so does so understand. By being tested in this marriage. You got to know Allah azza wa jal and love him, but you still are stuck with this narcissistic spouse, right? So first of all, I mean, this is how Allah azza wa jal sometimes guides us, you get something you don't really like, but through it, you get something that is far more precious than the test itself. So your test with a narcissistic spouse led you to Allah azza wa jal. So Wasn't it good then to have such a spouse? Right? So I'm not making fun of it. I'm actually seven I mean, a man is I mean, it's not sometimes easy to stomach. The see
how Allah azza wa jal guides us and takes us to where he wants us to go. But sometimes, isn't that good to be tested like that? Because that takes you to Allah azza wa jal because Allah then knows that without a B will not happen.
So hamdulillah for everything that Allah azza wa jal sends, just to kind of submit to Him subhanaw taala know how to deal with him, or with that person is difficult for me to say, because I don't know what makes that person a narcissist, and if that designation of a narcissist is
true or not, but what I can say is that if a person simply and only thinks about themselves, then at least make do art for them. Right? Make them aware of the flaws that they have, make them aware that there is medicine for it in the Quran, there is medicine for it in the Sunnah, you could fix all of this. And you could become a better person who not only cares and thinks about themselves and about their needs, who does not make other people feel terrible about themselves, because they haven't lived up to their own expectations. They don't blame another person for all the wrong things in their life and makes them at fault for whatever I'm feeling, makes them feel make them aware that
the way that you're dealing with other people is detrimental to you and every other relationship around that they're always a medicine for you to fix yourself. Make them aware of how they act make them aware of the consequences of how it's affecting all of the relationships around them and that they shouldn't and they couldn't continue like this. And there is a better healthier way to deal with people make dua and let them know all of this. And hopefully, it works.
And it could be that Allah azza wa jal had tested you with this to put you into Jannah. So ask Allah azza wa jal right for you and for everybody else to ease your burden and take away your hardship and may Allah azza wa jal give you, the best of spouse and the best of children and the best of circumstances. When he asked Allah azza wa jal to bring relief to all Muslims and to the people of Reza and to aid come to their aid to Allah. Ask Allah to clothed them and to feed them and to give them water and protection and to be their aid and to be their companion and to repel the aggression of the aggressors ammini orrible al Amin, and to foul their plots and to help us see a day when
Muslims are honored and protected on the face of this earth fearing none of this harassment and none of these ordeals whereas Allah has to make us of those who are worthy of all of that product along with EECOM Subhanak along with him digger shadow Allah Allah He lent us the Federico to the hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen.
