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

Smilla hamdulillah Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah he while early he was so happy he was salam

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

ala main Allah the curricular Shoukry co host neighboured Attic.

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

Aloma alumna million pharaoh now and foreigner Bhima Olympian. I was in Iman orbble al Amin Allahumma. Inna Allah the Kritika Asha Kritika was near Eva.

00:00:21--> 00:00:59

I'm a bad mess Allah Azza wa Jalla means to rectify and purify our intention and to grant us the best of intentions in all of our lives and in ways that pleases apana with the Isla and especially in this gathering for this halacha for this book for this project with Nila, as though they ask Allah azza wa jal to make what we say pleasing to Him, and that we derive maximum benefit from it and that it makes it that Allah would make it testimony for us on the Day of Judgment that we have heard we understood and we have applied and we've taught what we have learned bathed in Allah azza wa jal Hadith

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

number 23. And we are still in the section in the last section which is about loving creation.

00:01:09--> 00:01:17

And this hadith is an important to uneven though it's one that all of us, I'm guessing must know.

00:01:19--> 00:01:26

But this hadith is profound when you kind of dissect it and understand it. And its parts and in its totality.

00:01:28--> 00:01:46

here and it's reported by Muslim that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa earlier were selling them a call he said well are they enough CBD he let that whole Ginetta he told me you know what I told me no had to have boo. A fella do LUCAM Allah che in either for ultimo who to have up to him fu salaam abena calm.

00:01:47--> 00:02:14

So he said la Salatu was Salam. I swear by the one who has my soul in his hand. You will not enter Jana Zeigler, you will not enter agenda until you have Iman. And you will not have Iman until you love each other. Shall I not tell you about something that if you do, you will love each other spread Salam among you. Right. So we probably have heard that hadith before right.

00:02:15--> 00:02:19

And what I want us to realize immediately

00:02:21--> 00:03:07

is how the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam makes through this hadith love a necessity. We've been talking about this this is a poem that been repeating and we've been harping on continuously which is love and Islam are connected you can't really have one without the other. You can't have Islam without love and you really cannot have sound healthy, fulfilling love without Islam without the guidance of Allah azza wa jal telling you what and how, what to love and how to love. So in this one, little prophets, a lot of you will send them links Eman to love and Jana to Iman. So the first is based on the second.

00:03:09--> 00:03:52

So the second is a condition for the first and the third is a condition for the second. So Jana Eman love, right. So you will not enter Jannah until you have Iman and you will not have Iman until you love each other. So if you don't have the second, you won't have the first if you don't have the third, you don't have the second which means that if you don't have the third, you don't have the first. Does that make sense? Right Do you see the connection. So you will not enter Jannah until you have Iman and you do not have Iman until you love each other. So I can say if I remove the Eman that is in the middle, if it's understood, you will not enter Jannah until you love each other would that

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

be accurate?

00:03:54--> 00:04:08

will be an accurate statement. Right? So and that would be the statement of Rasulullah sallallahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam because without love for each other, we would not have Iman and that we don't have Iman then we would not have Jana.

00:04:09--> 00:04:25

So Subhanallah if you put it in that way, if you abbreviate it and you say the prophets Allah Allah Azza wa sallam is saying that if you don't love each other, then you will not enter Jannah it will tell you how important love is and how important loving each other is.

00:04:26--> 00:04:40

And it should be enough confirmation that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala wants that from us. And He wants us in order to pursue Iman in order to in order to pursue his pleasure. And enter Jannah He wants us to strive

00:04:42--> 00:04:58

until we love each other, because that may not be a given. That may not be what is common, but you need to push yourself and you need to do things. That's why he said la salatu salam let me tell you about a thing that if you do, you'll accomplish that love because you may not have it yet.

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

Either you don't have the ability, or you're unhappy with that particular person. So how are you going to develop it? Salam is one key way of developing that love. And we have to understand also that we need this hadith not only to understand,

00:05:17--> 00:05:23

amen, in full and also to understand love in full, but we need this Hadees because there is a

00:05:24--> 00:05:27

deficiency of love between Muslims

00:05:28--> 00:05:35

and that is where does that come from deficiency in Iman, because if you our iman was good sound

00:05:37--> 00:05:50

that then our love will be there. We will love each other. But when you see that, especially when tribalism regionalism, nationalism rears its ugly head.

00:05:51--> 00:06:31

And whenever there is a conflict between Muslims, friction between Muslims, you find them dividing based on regions based on nationality based on color based on gender based on this. So I love those who are closest to me, biologically, physically, linguistically, culturally, but none of these things are Iman none of these things are in themselves pleasing to Allah subhanho wa taala. Now on the one hand, it's natural for you to have a natural affinity towards those who look like you and talk like you and eat the same things as you, but this is duniya

00:06:32--> 00:06:44

if you simply only love and hate based on that, then that is simply deficiency in Eman and we even can say that if you arise against the people based on these principles that is Jamelia.

00:06:46--> 00:06:55

By if I love only based on color based on language based on food based on region based on nationality, that is Jehovah.

00:06:56--> 00:07:05

And if someone fights for the sake of these things, that is a Jehovah fight, they die like that. That is a Jaya Helia death.

00:07:06--> 00:07:16

So the hadith is telling you that as Muslims, we need to develop this love. But this love only comes through the development of Iman

00:07:18--> 00:07:30

and Iman only comes when the pursuit of Jannah is our highest goal and pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala is our project in life. That's the thing that really pleases us.

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

So if there is no love, there is no Jana.

00:07:36--> 00:07:43

You understand that Allah subhanho wa Taala if this is what he wants from us, according to the Hadith, he had put us on Earth

00:07:44--> 00:07:48

to develop this love to discover it,

00:07:50--> 00:07:53

to perfect it to earn it

00:07:54--> 00:08:01

despite the tests and obstacles that Allah has put us on this earth to love and be loved.

00:08:03--> 00:08:14

Right? And that would not be an exaggeration that one of the reasons why you're on this earth is to experience love. Ultimately, it's the love of Allah azza wa jal that you want to experience.

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

When Allah azza wa jal said

00:08:19--> 00:08:30

well, mahalo HELOC tool, Gina will insert elderly who don't if you remember, go back to when we first introduced this idea. I've only created humanity and the jinn for the sake of what

00:08:31--> 00:08:48

said my worship so that they would worship me. And if you remember how we explained that worship, it is surrender to Allah subhanho wa Taala mean complete surrender based on complete love. So the one with the greater Iman is the one who loves Allah more.

00:08:50--> 00:09:29

That's it. The better worshipper of Allah, the bearer, Abbot of Allah, the best a badDo of Allah is the one that has more love in it. So Allah Who wants you to experience this love to know what it is, and Allah wants to love you back and he also wants you to love the believers and for them to love you back. Because this is not simply a command for you to love the believers. They're also commanded to love you, and to strive to love you and do their best so that they would love you. So you're having here a command from him, Subhan Allah to Allah, you as a community, you as the Ummah, you have to experience this love, you have to live this love, you have to develop it. And

00:09:31--> 00:09:34

it's a litmus test for Iman.

00:09:35--> 00:09:45

Right? If the Imam of the Ummah is profound, they will have more of it. And if the Imam of the Ummah is lacking, then you will find that the first sign of trouble they'll turn against each other

00:09:47--> 00:09:50

based on like the divisions that we talked about.

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

So there's a Hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And it tells you how important love is in addition to the ayah that I just quoted. He said

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

In Osaka or Al Islam he and to hit the villa he were to buoy the villa. He said la Salatu was Salam. He says the firmest of knots means obligation which is when you tie a knot is something that is firm, right? Something that is solid, something that is strong. So that denotes obligations. He says the firmest of obligations in Islam is that you will love for the sake of Allah and you would hate for the sake of Allah. And he said also In another Hadith la Salatu was Salam

00:10:34--> 00:11:09

min Hubballi Allah he will Obatala you are utterly law Lila he will mana alila for the stack melon Iman. He says if someone loves for Allah sake and he hates for Allah sake and he gives for Allah sake and he withholds for Allah sake, he has completed Iman. So that hadith the second hadith is talking about movement, movement of the heart and movement of the body, internal and external movement. So this person that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is describing, he says, internally, he or she, they move, because of Allah.

00:11:13--> 00:11:19

And externally, they move because of Allah. So internally, what is this movement, love and hate?

00:11:20--> 00:11:24

So what do they love, they see and wait to see what Allah loves and they love it.

00:11:25--> 00:11:43

And what Allah hates and they hate it, so they don't go by their own emotions and their own desires and their own dislikes and personal likes and dislikes, but they consider what is pleasing to Allah and who is pleasing to Allah and they love and what is displeasing to Allah and who is this and they hate.

00:11:45--> 00:12:00

That's the internal movement. And if you have an internal movement, it must have and must be reflected in an external movement, right? Because if you hate something, it has to show it has to be manifest physically manifest. So he now he says when he gives,

00:12:01--> 00:12:26

He gives her Allah, not based on personal preference. He's my buddy, he's my friend, we talk to speak the same language, I like him more. So I give him more now they give for Allah sake. And when they withhold, they see when Allah wants him to withhold where Allah wants him to withhold, and they withhold despite their own personal preferences. So this is how they move.

00:12:28--> 00:12:45

And I cannot make a quick note here in the book about the issue here of hate, because some people cannot could be perplexed by it alarmed by it. What are you telling us that we should hate for Allah sake is isn't hate. Opposite to love is entirely opposite to religion. We say.

00:12:47--> 00:12:51

Everyone has to hate something, isn't it? Can you love everything?

00:12:53--> 00:13:26

Can you even personally, can you love everything? Like impossible? And if you love something you have to hate it's opposite? Right? So I can name you a few things. I'm not going to try but I can name few things. I'll tell you what, you hate this. Won't you hate that terrible axe? You say of course I hate this, this, this, this and that. So you can't survive based on love alone. Because if you love a thing, and it's opposite, they contradict each other it means that you don't love anything. Right? Like if if I love honesty, and deception, what do I love?

00:13:27--> 00:13:49

It can happen either love this, love that. So if you love something the opposite has to be hated. So here, Allah azza wa jal liberates you from your own personal hate. Unrestrained hate unethical hate to tell you since you're gonna hate anyway, hate for my sake, the way that I'm asking you to hate.

00:13:50--> 00:14:11

Right? Because otherwise you're gonna hate everybody. I can hate you because we have different colors out of debt hate you because we have different countries, different ethnicities, blood feud. Personally, I just simply don't like you. And if I don't like you, based on my personal reasons, then the circle of hate expense.

00:14:12--> 00:14:18

Right? Because this, the human being by nature is what? selfish and ignorant.

00:14:19--> 00:14:56

Right? There's injustice in them. And there's ignorance. So if you tell a person hate whomever you want, without any oversight, they'll hate everyone except themselves and people who look like them. So the circle of hate is big. And do whatever you want to do with your hate. No one is going to regulate it. Then they can do the worst of things to the people that they hate with me, right? Allah azza wa jal said no. If you want to hate hate, according to what I hate, it's not your own personal preferences. Only these four things that they have done against me, not you.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

And even when you hate

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

You have to be ethical and you have to be just

00:15:03--> 00:15:24

right. And do the do it the way that I command you to do not based on vengeance and not based on selfishness and not based on a desire for dominance, no based on what I'm telling you to do stop when I tell you to stop. So in fact, when you submit, in love and in hate to Allah azza wa jal,

00:15:25--> 00:15:54

Allah regulates and sublimates those emotions, but when you forsake Allah's guidance, they turned out to be destructive. So that's the kind of a quick note that I wanted just to simply comment on the issue of love and hate. So when we love for Allah for Allah sake, and we hate for Allah sake, we surrender to Him subhanho wa Taala so that he rescues us from our own destructive inclinations and emotions.

00:16:01--> 00:16:06

Now the problem of course, we said, what is the problem with hate? Okay?

00:16:09--> 00:16:22

Or what is the problem with feeling, too, to adhere to the advice in the Hadith of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, if we don't love for Muslims, or if we don't love each other?

00:16:23--> 00:16:51

What is the problem with that? If there is weakness in that love? What is it lead to? Or what is the saying about us? The first thing that is saying about us is that there is weakness in loving Allah subhanho wa taala. If we don't love each other, as believers, as people of faith, then that tells us that our love for Allah subhanho wa Taala is itself weak because it's failing to produce love towards the believers. Otherwise, if we loved

00:16:53--> 00:17:02

each other, like the Sahaba of the Prophet alayhi wa Salatu was Salam they loved each other then the you will understand that their Eman is the thing that moved them to produce that type of love.

00:17:03--> 00:17:05

So why is it problematic?

00:17:06--> 00:17:09

Because our love for Allah itself is weak.

00:17:10--> 00:17:33

Because if you love Allah, you must love whomever, and whatever Allah loves, right? So if you find yourself now wishing for the believers, what you wish for yourself not loving them as you love yourself, not loving them are exchanging love with them. It tells you that the motivator for that love which is the love of Allah as legit isn't itself absent, or very weak.

00:17:35--> 00:17:43

You know, every believing men and women as long as they are Muslim, they must have at least a little bit of a tiny love for Allah and the Prophet that makes them Muslim.

00:17:44--> 00:17:48

That could save us from hellfire eternity in hellfire.

00:17:49--> 00:17:54

But if the love of Allah is weak, and as a consequence,

00:17:55--> 00:18:05

the love for the believers is weak. And that is an indicator of a weak Iman, then it tells you that on the Day of Judgment, as he said, you will not enter Jin.

00:18:06--> 00:18:28

And what does it mean you will not enter Jannah it means that you may have to enter Hellfire first. Because that's what the hadith is saying you will not enter Jannah until you have Eman you're not have Iman until you love each other. So what are you saying oh prophet of Allah, Allah equals salatu salam, what are you saying that? What does it mean that you will not enter Jannah it means that you may enter Hellfire first, as a punishment,

00:18:29--> 00:18:33

because you love that love that you have for Allah is weak and for the believers is weak.

00:18:34--> 00:18:56

Or that you may have to be deprived of the highest rank Sinjin you will not enter Jannah, meaning the highest levels will not be yours. The lowest levels if you enter without previous punishment. So you're being deprived either immediate entry to Jannah, or punishment in hellfire or the highest degrees, the cause there is something that is missing.

00:18:57--> 00:19:07

So that's the first problem. The second problem is that when there's weakness in loving Muslims, society itself is damaged because of it.

00:19:09--> 00:19:19

How could serve? How could a society thrive and prosper? How can we have solidarity? How can it support each other when people hate each other?

00:19:20--> 00:19:59

Right? At the drop of a hat, you could have Muslims, right, this first sign of a problem. You're from here and then from there, on from this community and you're from that community, even within the same community. They're divided as well. We are from this region, you're from that region. We speak this way you speak that way. I love those people more than those people. So you find these fragmentations and the whispers of the shaytaan dividing muslims so that a common denominator between them is not Islam and the love of Allah azza wa jal, but the love of the self and the love of the tribe, no matter what you name that tribe. It could be the nation. It could be a color, it

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

could be anything

00:20:00--> 00:20:24

But it when it gains primacy over higher importance than Islam, they will not loving each other. Then the bond of Islam is weak society itself a weak the Ummah is weak, the community is weak. So when you don't have it, you are weak. And if you are a weak OMA, you understand what the consequences are.

00:20:25--> 00:20:26

Allah azza wa jal

00:20:27--> 00:20:33

also, I mean, another problem with this is that

00:20:34--> 00:20:50

we don't if we don't love each other, we will morally be deprived, not only socially, right, we will suffer. But even individually, we will be deprived, we will be lacking in character.

00:20:51--> 00:21:05

Because if I don't love you, how will I respect you? How will I honor you? How will I forgive you? How will how will I wish the best for you? How will how will I develop forgiveness and patience?

00:21:06--> 00:21:15

If I don't like you, and I'm not willing to strive to try to like you, our morality, how does our morality develop in solitude?

00:21:16--> 00:21:18

Or through interaction?

00:21:20--> 00:21:25

Because on your own, you can imagine that you are the most pious and the most patients

00:21:26--> 00:21:36

and the most forgiving person and you can think and praise yourself as such, you will only discover what type of person you are when you're tested. And when do you get tested?

00:21:38--> 00:22:03

When you interact with other people, so Allah azza wa jal says, well, Jelena, Botha commonly balding fitna tend to be your own. And we made some of you at tests for others, will you be patient to see who will be patient. So your patience cannot develop until you're tested with the company of other people. And you will not learn what forgiveness is and excel and forgiveness until somebody wrongs you.

00:22:04--> 00:22:26

And then you're able to forgive or not will show itself. And you will not be able to develop the love that Allah wants from you. Until what you have people who will test that love, and you still decide to love them for Allah sake, to forgive them for Allah sake, to develop love for people, even if they're not striving in that direction, but you strive, then

00:22:28--> 00:22:38

morality will develop ethics will develop, then the Sharia itself will develop. And the problem also when you don't love people, is that your application of Islam will suffer.

00:22:40--> 00:22:53

Your application of itself and Islam itself will suffer. So you understand, we have to interact with other people, right? It's a must. You cannot isolate yourself on top of a mountain.

00:22:55--> 00:23:39

The Sharia comes down to do what to regulate part of what it does to regulate that interaction. So that it is it maximizes benefits, minimizes harm or eliminates it and directs society towards Allah azza wa jal. And in the process, it tells you, you have to do this, and you have to do that. Refrain from this. And that's an obligation on you. And it's all based on connections that you have with people. So you have rights for the neighbors, right? Rights for parents rights for children, rights for the strangers, rights for the elder for those who are older, those rights for those who are younger, white for people who are in authority, rights for people who are under your authority. All

00:23:39--> 00:23:51

of these are guided interactions in the Sharia. If you don't love people, how will you observe their rights? How will you protect them? How will you observe the Command of Allah azza wa jal if you hate people,

00:23:52--> 00:23:58

how will you be able to stand in Salah with other people gives a cow How will you be able to go to Hajj

00:23:59--> 00:24:31

How will you be able to give salam to them if you don't like them as that the Prophet sallahu wa Salam is commanding us to do in that hadith, we won't be able to. So the application of itself Islam itself suffers even if you are okay with Allah azza wa jal but the rest of the Sharia will suffer because you don't love people. So it means that on many different fronts failing to do this is a failure in Iman in an a failure in Sharia another failure in society socially as well.

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

No.

00:24:36--> 00:24:57

We understand from the Hadith itself since it's recommended that we spread salaam to spread love that any act in Islam that will enhance love is recommended. And any act that diminishes love is prohibited.

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

And you can consider that is

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

That is a

00:25:02--> 00:25:04

general theme in the Sharia

00:25:05--> 00:25:24

general theme in the Sharia which will help you understand it and guide you through its individual rulings. Anything that will enhance love recommended, commanded the opposite prohibited. So for instance, what is the stated reason behind prohibit prohibiting alcohol and gambling

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

in the Quran? Right.

00:25:28--> 00:25:40

animosity between the believers it spreads animosity, right. So, one of the one of the advantages of people giving sadaqa and Zika is what?

00:25:41--> 00:25:49

In addition to helping but what is it also spreads a connection between people helping others and we say I mean we

00:25:51--> 00:25:59

explained in a hadith before, where the Prophet sallahu wa salam said that the most beloved of people to Allah are the most beneficial to people.

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

The most beloved of people to Allah are the people who are most beneficial to other people. So you understand here that the more beneficial you are,

00:26:11--> 00:26:47

the more beloved to Allah azza wa jal what does that what does that do? It enhances the bond between people and elevates their Iman and brings them closer together. So the Hadith states you do this, Allah loves that you do this Allah loves it relieves their pain, you give them counsel, you guide them, if they are lost, you assist them if they need help, all of these things are things that help other people they enhance love. So they are recommended or are an obligation and anything that is opposite than that. What is the problem with backbiting? What is the problem with gossiping? What is the problem with theft? It turns people against each other.

00:26:48--> 00:27:08

So all that is prohibited. So this is a general theme in the Sharia that Allah Zildjian makes us an obligation or recommended if this springs love then you do it if it's not then you have to stop it. So the believers must adopt as kind of an approach to life anything that will enhance love

00:27:09--> 00:27:11

it if you are not conscious of

00:27:12--> 00:27:40

the fact that this is halal or this is haram This is right this is wrong. But you're going about about to post something and you say this is an inflamed the fires of you know, nationalism is going to cause harm and discord, should I post this should I say this, you have to ask yourself, even if in that moment, you're not aware of halal and haram right or wrong. But he said my objective in life is kind of the operative concern is I want to have Muslims love each other not hate.

00:27:42--> 00:27:47

Any act that you do that you take that fragments Muslims is forbidden.

00:27:49--> 00:28:05

So even if what you're going to say is right, but the wrong way or at the wrong time, right, you should withhold and say Don't, don't speak until you're sure that you're saying it in the best of ways, because he can speak the truth but in ways that what

00:28:06--> 00:28:08

are inflammatory,

00:28:09--> 00:28:20

right? And then say to yourself, this Allah is there to love this or is causing more harm and that harm is hatred between the believers. So

00:28:21--> 00:28:47

any act any act and you have to also put out fires if people are fighting and there's hatred and it's gonna spread you know, put out that fire but reminding them that they are brothers and sisters, reminding them that it's haram to hate each other haram to gossip and what this will lead to are consequences that are detrimental not only in terms of social relations, but with your relationship with Allah azza wa jal suffers

00:28:48--> 00:29:00

because the prophets Allah Allah wa sallam when he said when he talked about facade with that in vain enmity, having sour bad relations between people, he said he will he'll highly, it will shave off religion.

00:29:02--> 00:29:38

Thou Kulu Dalio shadow like entirely for Dean removes all of religion. Because when you hate someone, what do you do? You start backbiting about them. That's a sin, believing lies about them, spreading lies about them, and there is no limit to the terrible things that you would commit. Eventually, people could kill each other because of that hatred. That's why he said Dalai Salatu was Salam that it shaves off. Religion completely removes all of Taqwa. That is its danger. And that's why love is essential. So one of the things that

00:29:40--> 00:29:49

the Prophet alayhi salatu salam recommended and that is in this hadith is salaam as a strong tool for spreading love.

00:29:51--> 00:29:52

And of course we can say

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

if we want to expand this a little bit good character in general. Kindness is

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

I

00:30:02--> 00:30:05

saw it was to be soft spoken to be helpful

00:30:06--> 00:30:18

to conceal people's mistakes to worry about them. All of these things. They enhance love, you understand it's recommended. Understand that Allah Allah loves them. Salam in particular

00:30:20--> 00:30:24

may is mentioned in this hadith because it's one of the easiest thing that you can do.

00:30:25--> 00:30:28

He said alayhi salatu salam and this hadith is on page 264

00:30:30--> 00:31:02

He said As salam o 's Smallman, Esma Allahu Allahu Allahu fille already for sure will be no come. Is it As Salam is one of the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he had placed on Earth, so spread it among each other. And he said he continues in the radula Muslimah either Mr. Ravi Coleman Fussa lemma Allah him forward to Allah He can Allahu Allah him. Fog luda Raja bit fkT iya homos salam for him them in the mural do Allah He or dolly human who were high roaming home walls here is a person with

00:31:03--> 00:31:49

passed by a people and he would give them the salam and they will reply. And because of that he will have a rank higher than them because he reminded them of Salam. And if they don't reply people or accompany better than them will give him the replay will reply and give back the salam. So think about it here. He's saying Allah Salatu was Salam first. What is a Salam in case we don't understand it? Is a Salam is the name of Allah azza wa jal, right. So when you are seeing a Salam or Aleikum, you're spreading the name of Allah subhanho wa taala. It's as if you are saying me in the name of Allah, which is es Salaam surround you and protect you. And you're also announcing through that,

00:31:49--> 00:32:28

that I bring you no harm. I bring you only the best. So it's a declaration that on my part, I have the best for you. But also I'm making dua for you. As salam, O Allah commend the name of Allah azza wa jal bless you protect you honor you elevate you all of that. And what is the name of Allah azza wa jal, Asana, who is the one who is free from imperfection, free from mistakes, the perfect so salaam, free of any deficiency, so me the one who is be who is free of any deficiency, also free you from any harm.

00:32:29--> 00:32:42

So you're wishing them that. So you understand that that greeting a Salam is very unique. There is nothing that you can say that comes close to it, because it has the name of who

00:32:43--> 00:32:45

I was Hola zoton, and it's a DUA

00:32:46--> 00:32:55

and especially if you continue on rahmatullahi wa barakato it's a dua its unparalleled, when it comes to greetings. That's why you cannot be exchanged with anything else.

00:32:56--> 00:33:08

So when you see As Salam aleykum, you are mentioning Allah's name, so he's saying Allah is Salatu was Salam. If a person begins with a Salam and he receives a reply, he is better because he started

00:33:10--> 00:33:29

he has a degree higher, because he started and he says, if it happens that for whatever reason, they don't want to give him the salam back. He says there is a company that will give him the Salaam and that company is better he says, how you don't mean whom waltz? Yep, they are better than them. Better than them and what?

00:33:30--> 00:33:32

And purer than them.

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

And these are the angels of Allah azza wa jal so that you don't feel

00:33:38--> 00:33:42

distressed, if you give people Salam and they don't say it back.

00:33:44--> 00:34:06

And you're saddened by it. So the Prophet that is salatu salam wanting to tell you know, there is an invisible reply from a company that better is better than the company that just rejected you. So keep giving the salam Don't stop. Keep giving the Salaam and imagine the reply coming from the angels of Allah azza wa jal, it's a better reply, because when you are receiving a Salam, that's also a DUA

00:34:08--> 00:34:23

and if it's coming from a company that is pure and better, than it's a better and better dua, and why do you receive that better dua? Because you had to strive against your own inclination and give them the salam though you expect that they will not give it back?

00:34:25--> 00:34:58

Okay, so that is a reward for the person who kind of disciplines his own ego disciplines his own reactions in the set and said, as we said in the Hadith gifts for Allah sakes, and with holes for Allah sake, he doesn't say I'm not gonna give this a name because they don't give me this olam is our gonna give it to them. I will greet them with it. Even if they don't give a reply. Even if they don't initiate it. I'll be the one who will give this because I want the best from Allah subhanho wa taala. And the beautiful thing about why salaam spreads love

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

is

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

At Allah azza wa jal is behind it. Of course, there's kind of reasonable common reasons why it's a spreads love you and when you greet someone, or when you meet someone and the only say they always say said unto you, and they always smile. And they always ask about you once you love them.

00:35:21--> 00:35:29

Can you not love them? So it's natural, right? That when you say salaam that you're going to love that person who's giving that to you? Natural.

00:35:31--> 00:35:35

So that's reasonable. We're saying it but it doesn't really just stop there.

00:35:36--> 00:36:23

Because Who's the one who commanded it? Allah azza wa jal who's the one who's behind it? Allah zoton. So Allah as noted says about the Sahaba were Allah ever been toppled over him? And he brought their hearts together? He's talking about the Sahaba he brought their hearts together. He said subhanho wa Taala lo unfilter. mirfield already Jamia Mata left Sabina coleauxv wala kin Allah Allah beno is it, if you were to spend everything on earth, you will not be able to bring their hearts together. But Allah did it, to tell you that the bond that Allah creates, and the love that he brings, is stronger than anything that a human being can muster, or can create, or can develop.

00:36:23--> 00:36:56

Much, much stronger. You can try to create love on your own. Like nations try to build solidarity based on common history and destiny. They're trying to create love, solidarity, love the nation, love the flag, love the borders, love, love, language, love for food, love the cuisine, right? So that what you want to create a common destiny. But no matter what you try to do as a human being, it remains weak and shaky. You could break it. Right? You could break it nations break the fragment.

00:36:58--> 00:37:27

But Allah that Allah azza wa jal had given us unbreakable, unless you compromise Iman. But as long as there is a man to fuel it, and Allah is behind it, it's unbreakable. That's why Allah said, Where are you to spend everything like you hire every PR firm? Every sociologists, every psychologist, every professor, every philosopher, everyone, because that's what money means, right? You hire everybody to try to create that bond, you won't be able to, but Allah did it.

00:37:28--> 00:37:48

So when you're saying salam, it's not just simply physical reasons, that are spreading this love. It's actually Allah azza wa jal, who is planting this love in the heart of the believers, because you are doing it out of iman, out of love for Allah, out of love for the person and concern for them. And they do the same for you.

00:37:49--> 00:37:54

So then the love between the believers would be great.

00:37:55--> 00:38:24

And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, you know, and that's why it's really an intrinsic part of iman, early on very early in Medina, when somebody came in as the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam au Islamic higher, which actions in Islam are best so he said that is Salatu was Salam to a Mata arm you feed in and you feed people with the Quran was salam ala moana, or after a woman named tarrif. And you agree to whomever you know, and whom you do not know what Salam

00:38:25--> 00:38:30

see these two things, because this is what you're able to give. And that's a hadith there was

00:38:31--> 00:38:33

a question that was asked early on in Medina.

00:38:35--> 00:38:40

After hijra, what is the best? What are the best actions in Islam is that you feed you give people food,

00:38:41--> 00:38:57

especially if they are in need, you give people food, then what else? Because you could say I don't have money. I don't know how to cook, et cetera, et cetera, et Cie teclado salam ala moana or of the woman named Todd if you greet people with sit down whether you know them or not.

00:38:59--> 00:39:00

That's the condition

00:39:01--> 00:39:03

because it's customary right for you to greet people that you know

00:39:05--> 00:39:13

and why do you greet people that you know or whom you know? Because you know them is that for Allah sake necessarily?

00:39:14--> 00:39:50

No, they expect that from you you expect that from them you want something from them how many times and we'll do this by the way you see a cinematic mean simply because you want to jump to the next thing that you want to say to them. Somebody come to you what about this right? So do you want to just you want you want something from them so you proceed with cinema. So if the cinema is there, what you initiate a conversation but the intention is I want something from you. And you want something from me, even if it's what how are you doing? You just want a conversation? So I need something from you. But if you don't know the person, why you giving them Salam?

00:39:53--> 00:39:58

Not it's only because of Allah azza wa jal because you're not going to get anything from them.

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

I don't know him I may never meet him again.

00:40:03--> 00:40:09

But you see a set Armonico but yeah, I don't know you. Well, that's good. Because this is done then for Allah.

00:40:11--> 00:40:41

I don't know this sister for the sisters, I don't know this sister. First time in the masjid. Or it's my first time in the midst. Imagine how it is right? If you enter a masjid and imagine yourself in that, especially if you don't hop around masjid, but kind of you, you know inhabit a one particular Masjid where people know you imagine you go to a new masjid. And you enter the mystery and there are people there and you enter it. Nobody gives you some, nobody recognizes you. Nobody acknowledges you. You come in a stranger you live a stranger. What impact does that leave?

00:40:43--> 00:40:48

No connection. Imagine if you were to enter that masjid and everybody gives you Salam.

00:40:49--> 00:41:01

And you feel immediately that you belong no one knows you. No one knows your name yet first time, but you feel that you really belong. Everybody smiles and everybody's giving you Salam Majan just the emotions that you're going to have.

00:41:03--> 00:41:26

So this is the baraka of following the Sunnah of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam by giving that Salam out of tellem tarrif whether you know them or not, me especially if you do not know them because he said to La salatu salam and that hadith is on page 266 He says been a day you said it to Salim will ha saw he says just before the hour is salaam between acquaintances only

00:41:27--> 00:41:39

been a day is the slim will ha saw. That is before the day of judgment comes you're gonna have people who will give Sunam only to those who know each other. So one of the signs of the Day of Judgment right?

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

One of the things that okay, the world is in a is about to end.

00:41:45--> 00:42:14

What is it or people ignore you if they don't know you, which is what we're doing. today. We don't give salam unless we know the other person. Know the Prophet alayhi salatu salam doesn't want you to live like this doesn't want you to practice your iman and Islam like that. Anyone that you see is someone who deserves salam from you. Right? And that should be done for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. So I'll give you a couple of examples in sha Allah from the companions.

00:42:17--> 00:42:58

So, Allah, this is on page 2672268 a la hora. The Allahu Anhu is a companion. So he said the prophets Allah, Allah wa salam has designated had designated a bunch of dates for me. And those dates were with the person from the unsought and he delayed giving them to me. So he wanted his dates, which are prophets Allah Salam had earmarked for him, he promised those days for him. So he went to the Prophet sallahu wa salam, and he said, All prophets of Allah, can you talk to him? So the prophets are all in Salem deputised, Abu Bakr, and he said, Oh, Abu Bakr in the morning, go with him and get him his dates.

00:42:59--> 00:43:39

So Abubakar, he promised he said to the man, let's meet at federal after federal prayer. So he said, he said I came in the morning and I found him as he promised me at federal prayer where he promised me call a Fanta lacuna. So we had and we traveled towards that person's house. So for Cana Kula Mara Abu Bakr and Raju and minbar Aden Salam Allah when Abu Bakr whenever he would see a person from afar, he would give him salaam be the first to do this. Then Abu Bakr told him Allah Amato Rama you'll see will como la communal foetal la law is Bill Hoca Illa salami.

00:43:40--> 00:44:14

It says Don't you see how those people have gained more favors than you by proceeding you with Salam like everybody who's coming they're giving you Saddam So Rebecca gives it first right and they reply, but then they give that person this alarm they initiate this alarm to him and he gives them the reply silverbucket is telling him see how many times now when you pass by people they give you a Salam first before you did and how much favor they you gained over you let no one proceed you to Salah law to speak okay Illa salam

00:44:15--> 00:44:25

for COULDNA either Tada or Raja roaming but even better Nabil Salah macabre and Usili Marina so that now both of us whenever we see a person from afar, we say salam first before he says it to us.

00:44:27--> 00:44:44

And you understand that Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu was eager to catch as many good deeds as possible to compete for them to reach out and get them. So he's saying here, Radi Allahu Anhu and he was teaching him Why are you wasting these rewards?

00:44:45--> 00:44:59

Everybody who says it for before you has gained favor over you? And it's not that you don't wish for people to have that. But why are you depriving yourself of all of this good? Be the one who proceed first to Salem.

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

So he says that's what we did.

00:45:02--> 00:45:10

And here's another example from Abdullah Hypno Omar. Otter the Allahu Anhu. He says autofire of Norway you have no cab.

00:45:11--> 00:45:13

He would come and visit Abdullahi Umar

00:45:15--> 00:45:47

Radi Allahu I know. And he would go with him to the marketplace. And the marketplace imagine with me a traditional super traditional marketplace and how it looks maybe something similar to this call of ADA Dona Illa. So when we go early to the soul of Allah Hypno Omar would not let anyone pass him by someone who was selling something expensive, someone who is selling something that is cheap, someone who is poor, but we'll give him some everybody right as he passing by. along his way, he will give salam to everybody in the market,

00:45:48--> 00:46:23

Carla to for you to do to Abdullah Hypno Maruyama so I came to visit Abdullah have no amaro one of those days. He said, Follow me to the market. So I told him, what are you doing in the market? Like why do you go to the market, you don't want to buy anything. You're not asking about anything that people are selling. You're not bargaining and you're sitting in people's gatherings which they have gatherings in the mess in the market. So you have no purpose to go you don't want to buy you don't want to sell you're not asked about prices, you're not interested in the merchandise. You don't even want to sit with them and talk to them. Why do you keep going to the market like this? So he said

00:46:23--> 00:46:36

Yeah, about button. He said that's that's kind of a nickname he had. He said in the monocle domain Edgerly salami, new Sallim ala man Latina he says we had there because of salaam so that we would give Sudan to whomever we meet.

00:46:37--> 00:46:45

So the trip that Abdullah ibn Umar Radi Allahu Anhu would take to the market wasn't to sell or buy, wasn't to

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

shop. Or to pass time. What was it for?

00:46:52--> 00:46:55

It's a densely populated area to give salam.

00:46:57--> 00:47:34

Like it's, it's a treasure for him, just like coming to the masjid. So I'm going to come to the masjid. And you're not in the woman's area for the sisters or for the brothers area and the brothers. You know, how many people are going to be there? And we're gonna get salaam salaam salaam salaam to everybody. Right before I it's not like, you know what if they're not going to give salam to me, I'm not gonna give salam to them. Because that's not the attitude you have here. I'm not doing it only for your sake, of course, I want the best for you. But I'm not motivated only by you. Because if I'm motivated only by you, I won't do it. Right? Because it's reciprocal. It's a diamond

00:47:34--> 00:48:03

sign of disrespect. Why is it that I'm older than you? You should give me Salam? Or I always give it why don't you do that to me? Do you like me less? Do you respect me less, and then the whispers of the shaytaan. Right? And to your head. But if your motivation is I don't care about what they give back. Or if they give anything back. What I care about is Allah xojo and their benefit. And I want to remind them of Allah, and I want to get Allah's reward, I'll say salaam to everybody.

00:48:05--> 00:48:06

Right before they do that to me.

00:48:08--> 00:48:10

And you will see how the dynamics change.

00:48:12--> 00:48:16

And the person who is sour and reluctant and you know, bitter and turns

00:48:18--> 00:48:24

and becomes a different person, because you are gracious and forgiving. You can change.

00:48:26--> 00:48:56

But you could allow bitter people to make you bitter when they say I'm not giving salam to you because you do that to me Fine, I'll do the same and bitterness spreads. And that's not what the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam once imagine even in the houses of Allah as you come in, and this person is not talking to that person, this person is angry with that person. But rather, if you want to show a man and you want to show what humility because you know, it takes a lot of humility for a person to be the person who always says salaam to people.

00:48:57--> 00:49:02

They don't they're not egotistical. They're not the center of attention.

00:49:04--> 00:49:26

They're not proud. I'll say salam, why not? So when you discipline yourself, when you humble yourself when you close to Allah azza wa jal when Allah matters more than your own self, then Salam can be easy. Because Um, could be great. And this is one of the easiest things right? To do. So here is what the prophets Allah, Allah wa salam wanted us to do.

00:49:28--> 00:49:30

What is it that you want? This Salam is a key to Janna.

00:49:32--> 00:49:59

And being something verbal is one of the easiest thing that you could do. Kids you adopted right now. And because it's not financial, you're not losing anything. If someone was to tell you give $1 Every time you come to every person you meet, you'll stop coming to the mystery. Right? Because I don't want to lose money. But you're not going to lose Salam will do. Salam Alaikum Salaam Alaikum salam, I have as many salaams as you want from me. You're not losing anything.

00:50:00--> 00:50:20

So it's easy to adopt you lose nothing. But you consider that and you consider agenda at the end because if you do this, there's going to be love. The foundation of love will be established. And if you love each other is going to bolster your Eman and if it increases your Eman and increases

00:50:21--> 00:51:04

your chances to enter Jannah escape from hellfire and be in the highest ranks. So this is what the prophets a lot he was salam said and he began it as he began the last Hadith wonder the in fcbd I swear by the one who has my son in his head, meaning you really should believe this. Nina even if you don't understand how it really works, how long it's going to work it take to work how it changes people how it can get me into Jana, you don't get it, you don't have to get it. You just have to believe him. And he's telling you, you do this, the next few steps will follow. So let's try to adopt this with the intention of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala not people increasing our iman

00:51:04--> 00:51:16

entry into Jannah reminding people of who Allah is and bringing benefit to them. So if that's the case, you will naturally love people and naturally you'll Iman will increase Whitney Lasota

00:51:17--> 00:51:24

so stop here with Eliza Jill and let me know if there's anything you would like to ask or we'd like to add

00:51:41--> 00:51:44

go ahead good Salam

00:51:51--> 00:51:52

no

00:51:56--> 00:52:01

it is according to this hadith, right? It is the name of Allah subhanho wa taala. So

00:52:04--> 00:52:05

and it's

00:52:06--> 00:52:17

one it's more honorable, more blessed when you think about it that way. Now the other one which is Peace be with you. They've taken it from peace and what is peace mean?

00:52:19--> 00:53:00

Peace mean, if you want to say salaam absence of hostility, just that Salam, Salam is absence of hostility, absence of harm. So they thought if you say Salam Alikum for instance, there is that meaning is embedded, as we said, right, because it's an announcement that because I'm bringing the name of Allah as the release Salam you also free of any harm that is going to come from me. That's what the word peace is. Peace is the absence of harm. So that's an announcement. So when you say Peace be upon you. What do you mean by up in that, um, I don't intend to harm you, you will only get peace from me. So when you're seeing a Salam, which is the name of Allah azza wa jal, that's

00:53:00--> 00:53:05

embedded in it. But the fuller more perfect meaning is that's the name of Allah has.

00:53:09--> 00:53:10

Go ahead.

00:53:19--> 00:53:24

Okay, so what is the difference she's saying between the two nurse which is have self dignity?

00:53:27--> 00:54:11

Uh huh. So what is the difference between the two nurse candidate having dignity and having Kibber, which is pride. So dignity means that you don't accept oppression. You don't accept humiliation? You don't accept injustice? Because that's what the Sahaba were. Right. So they will, if there's any injustice, they will have visited us. They don't want to be oppressed. They don't want to receive injustice, they can forgive if they have power. Right? Like they will have power and they will forgive. But they don't want to tolerate injustice or humiliation. So that's the difference. Whereas Kibber, right, it's a false status. The one assigns to himself, where he thinks he's better than

00:54:11--> 00:54:38

other people. So it's an embellishment, an exaggeration, but is it enough is that somebody wants to insult you, you don't accept it. Somebody wants to take what is yours and you don't accept it, violate your rights and you don't accept it, put you down and you don't accept it. That's his pride is that I'm better than you. I'm smarter than you Right? Or you don't deserve what you have. I deserve it. That's the difference. So that's the line alone

00:54:46--> 00:54:59

so how can you get yourself to love people more? So the easiest thing is send them right if you don't even want to think about it. Just give give keep giving people Salem, right. So that's one of the easiest things

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

Also if you want to think about a kind of this requires some to DeBoer some contemplation is to know that okay, this person who is a believer who is a Muslim, doesn't Allah love them?

00:55:13--> 00:55:27

At some beginner level, even if they are the worst of people, but as long as they have Iman and Islam in them, doesn't Allah azza wa jal love them in proportion to the Eman and Islam that they have? You must say yes, shouldn't I also love them for that sake as well.

00:55:28--> 00:56:06

So this is when you say to yourself, I should surrender so that I would love what Allah loves. So Allah loves all those who have Iman, then I should love them as well. And in one way or another old, they are obedient to Allah, they will defend him they will live in Muhammad Ali's Salatu was Salam, they will defend the Quran, they will do this, this this this this is in this is something that you should love in them. And if you think about them, despite all the bad things, you know, that they may have done, even if they have wronged you, but this person, they have to struggle with their own weaknesses, with their own demons might have not like actual demons, but like, you understand what

00:56:06--> 00:56:35

I'm saying, their own addictions, their own frailties, and also actual demons, they have to struggle with the whispers of the shaytaan. So everything is against them, and all the fitting of the dunya is against them. Don't you feel sorry for them, like you feel sorry for yourself. Right? With all the things that you have to endure. So when you feel like that towards them, it's easier to love them. So it requires two things, one on a mental right and emotional level to think

00:56:36--> 00:56:48

okay, and see that there are commonalities between us and that they are still worshipers of Allah azza wa jal and on the physical level, you do things that will enhance that love. So

00:56:49--> 00:57:13

you give them Salam, you make dua for them. Allah lengthy do out for them, you give them and we'll we'll get to some of these things. You give them gifts. You will honor them you be kind to them. Even if at that moment you don't really feel like it but you strive and the feelings will change as a consequence. So this is how insha Allah you can you can begin

00:57:25--> 00:57:26

Oh, okay.

00:57:28--> 00:58:14

Is it allowed to say Salam to the opposite sex? So this is more of a question. So if there is no fitna, then you're allowed to write if there is no fitness. So when typically is there a fitna if your individuals one man, male to a female, one female to a male, right? And you in there's kind of the ages close or both of them could desire each other. So she's not really old, or he's not really old. So when there's the possibility of fitna, you wouldn't say salam to each other. But if you have group of males, and they're a single female, or a group of male, one male and a group of females, they can say salaam to each other. Because fitna diminishes, then he can say Salam Alikum to a group

00:58:14--> 00:58:42

of females, the Prophet salallahu Salam did that, okay, or one female to a group of males, right? Because it's not directed at one person. And there is no solitude, there's no Kalwa. So when there is the absence of fitna, you can do this right or a very old man or a very old woman, then you can do this. But if there is possibility of fitna it's better to be safe. So you wouldn't say salam you pass each other, you see each other? You wouldn't say salam to each other, right

00:58:50--> 00:58:58

depending on the context, so it happens like somebody gives you the salam like this right? Are you in an Hana kind of public space? Are you alone?

00:58:59--> 00:59:30

Public Space have a public space, right that I mean, you could it's a judgment call right? You could just reply very faint with a very faint sound and keep walking right? In a sense okay. You did Salam but not audible enough for him to know it. And for him also to realize that well I may have done something inappropriate here so he will not repeat it but I'm afraid that if it is audible and he hears it every the next time he's gonna give salam again right so reply back to yourself and keep walking

00:59:33--> 00:59:34

in the back and then the front

00:59:42--> 00:59:47

Okay, so you want to initiate Salam you say to non Muslim As Salam aleykum

00:59:49--> 01:00:00

Okay, so in this initiate initiating Salam can only happen to Muslims As Salam Alikum the reply here you have the scholars disagree

01:00:00--> 01:00:09

A little bit here. So if a non Muslim gives you Salam, he says a Salam aleikum, what do you do? So, some scholars have said you say what Alikum

01:00:11--> 01:00:53

and some scholars have said if you know that they have actually could hear that they have said a Salam or Aleikum, you will see what at ecommerce cinema and distinction here happens because some of the people of the Book of the time of the prophets a lot he was sending them right they instead of saying A salaam salaam okay they say a SAM okay with Sam means death. So they play with that word so that they would be saying death beyond you or death for you. So the prophets Allah said them he would say to them what end on you or and for you so that in case if they were saying salaam they get Salam back if they're saying death they get that back whatever you say I'm not investigating goes

01:00:53--> 01:01:14

back to you. So some of this or Oldham I think is like if not claimed Rahim Allah He said that if you're sure that what they're saying is as salaam you can say what la cama Sinha so that's what I would recommend Do you have a Muslim and they don't know where Arabic right and say Salam Alikum you say Valley como Sinha but to begin a non Muslim with a Salam This is reserved for Muslims

01:01:24--> 01:01:26

I'm sorry, I repeat that I couldn't hear you.

01:01:35--> 01:01:39

So I'm trying to remember and I think maybe I should have kind of included this.

01:01:42--> 01:01:42

There

01:01:43--> 01:02:27

that when Allah has voted and you can go back to that hadith Gannett for confirmation, when Allah azza wa jal created Adam Alayhis Salam, he said, go and greet those angels, and see what they will reply. And he went and he said to Salam Alikum, and they said Valley como Salam, and he said, This is the greeting of your of you and your progeny. Right? And actually, you remind me of something else, which is that the Prophet sallahu wa salam said, he says Muhammad had camellia who do Muhammad Comala che, As Salam would mean, he said, The Jews NVu for two things the most, which is Salam and the saying of Amin, so one of them is a Salam. And you understand why anybody would envy you for it,

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

because they understand how valuable that thing is, they don't have it. Even though right now maybe among some circles among them, they will say that, but I am willing can have to, I really believe that they've took it from Muslims because the province it said them when he said the NVu for it means that they don't have it.

01:02:47--> 01:03:12

And they understand how valuable it is that Allah had had kind of favored you with this. Or maybe they had it and lost it. But Allah had favored you with this and you still hold on to it. That's such a valuable thing. You make dua for each other. And Allah blesses you because of it and you actually love each other. Because of that Allah eliminate hatred because of it, which is they don't have and the other thing is seeing me

01:03:13--> 01:03:21

and when someone ends and someone with knowledge and Vizu about something, it tells you how valuable that thing is, so hold on to it because it is valuable.

01:03:25--> 01:03:29

Okay, so no more online questions okay. They even shell

01:03:30--> 01:03:31

from the list

01:03:35--> 01:03:39

Okay, so you're saying Salam to the house in the household?

01:03:40--> 01:03:44

Even if it is empty, so you're asking about it

01:03:48--> 01:03:56

right, so some scholars and they think this is based on a weak Hadith then when they say a Salam wa they know Allah Eva de la sala Hain Is this what you're referring to

01:04:00--> 01:04:24

now, so some scholars have recommended and this is based on a weak Hadith because there's no one at home that you would say as salaam wa Lena while Eva de la his Salah Hain or his saying you will see a Salam aleikum. Now if you want to follow that particular opinion based on that particular weak Hadith I mean, I'm not gonna stand against you but there's no one at home

01:04:25--> 01:04:33

so who are you saying salam to right so I from end to end for him to not act like in law you to do heads will be

01:04:34--> 01:04:36

cannula you did the head video yeah tema de nada Hadith life

01:04:37--> 01:04:37

for the

01:04:44--> 01:04:44

No.

01:04:46--> 01:04:59

Alpha you know, Zack Allah he says what is the difference between seeing As Salam aleykum and seeing as Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Of course, the most complete one I'll recommend that you would say Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

01:05:00--> 01:05:40

Prophet sallallahu sallam said in the Hadith 30 And Allah azza wa jal writes 30 good deeds for you when you complete the salam. So that's the complete one. As Salam aleikum gets you 10 Salam aleikum? Wa Rahmatullah gets you 20. So if you want the fullest salaam, Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. And once you receive that, you have to reply with an equal or a better signal. So somebody gives you some modicum. The minimum is what ecommerce Salam or aleikum wa salam. Someone says salam aleikum wa rahmatullah what is the minimum while they can Salam wa amatola If he adds Roboto he must include wabarakatuh in the complete salaam, so that for her you will be asked and I

01:05:40--> 01:05:46

mean her out to do her say something better, or at least that reply with the same

01:05:47--> 01:05:48

barnacle?

01:05:52--> 01:06:04

Zack Allah here, that's a good question. Are you sinful if someone gives you Salam, and you don't reply, yes. Because the reply is an obligation. Right? A lot of the scholars have said initiating the Salam is a sunnah

01:06:06--> 01:06:41

the reply is a must. So if you fail me now if he gives you, salam, so take a couple of scenarios, he gives you salon to you one to one, one to one, so the salon has an obligation on you, because you've received it. So you have to give it back I'm in a group that he or they give salam to us is sufficient than one replace. That's enough as a minimum one replies so this is for but it's on the group because they received it as a group. But if I receive it as an individual I must also reply as an individual right

01:06:57--> 01:07:09

now if the if they've given this to the congregation, they've come in and killing the congregation, one person because it's he's giving to the group, so if someone person says radical Muslim, that is sufficient job.

01:07:31--> 01:08:13

So okay, how do we deal with the widow area? I'm sorry, how do we deal with Salam in the widow area? is sometimes it's separated from the washroom and sometimes it is not, right. So if they are separated, and they were marked separation, then the widow area is a separate area. So you deal with the widow area as a widow area, so you can give salam and you can give it back. Right. So your financial, if they are not separated? Okay. And which is something that is kind of novel and new for Muslims, right. They didn't, they didn't build things like that previously. So some scholars have said, you don't utter Allah's name, because it's a mixed area and the washroom is there. That is one

01:08:13--> 01:08:55

opinion. And the other opinions say, you know, it's a mixed area. So the area where it's prohibited to other Allah's name is that particular area that is the toilet. But if you move to the other area, you're doing something else, distinct from the other. So you are allowed to or Allah's name there. So for instance, and although you can say Bismillah right, so some will say you don't say Bismillah, because it's common, and you say it in your heart, and some say you do you do say Bismillah, because that's an area for will do designated for it. That's another area designated for the other business. So if it's distinct, like for instance, an area that you have here, and this in the masjid, you

01:08:55--> 01:09:00

would say salaam aleikum to people right who are making Moodle because the area is separate.

01:09:04--> 01:09:07

Okay, anything else? Oh, one more?

01:09:15--> 01:09:17

If both don't give Salam is that a sin?

01:09:19--> 01:10:00

So if both of them don't give salam because they hate each other, they boycotted each other, they're not talking to each other. It's a sin, the sin because of it. So this person does it and this person doesn't. And they're not bigots because they're not talking because otherwise why are they not giving salaam to each other? If the motive behind it is that we are not speaking? And they're not there at all terms with each other, then yes, that is a sin. If they simply just fail to say salaam, it's bad manners. If it's simply it's a failure, this person doesn't and this is then it's bad manners. Because that's not how a Muslim is supposed to behave, but it's just if they

01:10:00--> 01:10:08

are angry with each other than they do sin because of that, Lord. Okay, I just want to make sure everybody got to ask their questions

01:10:10--> 01:10:20

BarakAllahu li come and see you in sha Allah and they speak with ALLAH SubhanA Cananga Hamza shadow Allah Allah Hill and the stuff you love to work with him the Lord will Alameen Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
