00:00:59--> 00:01:20

all praises due to Allah we seek His guidance and his forgiveness and we seek refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves and the whispering of our desires, whom Allah guides no one can misguided whom he allows to be misled. No one can guide and I've ever witnessed that there is nothing worthy of worship except Allah, Allah and having no partners and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa set it up is his slave and His messenger and his perfect worshiper.

00:01:21--> 00:01:24

When Bernard was Thalia accepted Islam.

00:01:25--> 00:01:31

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made an agreement with their chief, and had if

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

even the roar of Jose,

00:01:35--> 00:01:39

and he made an agreement with him that he would send a messenger in the future

00:01:41--> 00:01:44

to collect zakat from this tribe that had now accepted Islam.

00:01:46--> 00:01:51

And so Rasulullah sallallahu sent him sent a companion by the name of annually the winner Akbar.

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

And when Allah when he was sent to go collect the

00:01:57--> 00:01:58


00:01:59--> 00:02:06

some of the narration say that there happened to be old bad blood between bento masala and they're very they've been Aqua.

00:02:08--> 00:02:21

And so when some members of the tribe came out, they came out with their swords out to honor the messenger of the Messenger of Rasulullah Salallahu Salam. And when he saw that from a distance, he panicked, got scared, turned around and went back.

00:02:24--> 00:02:31

And he went back to the sudo, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah sent him and said, that tribe tried to kill me.

00:02:32--> 00:02:35

That's what he saw. And they refuse to pay this account.

00:02:37--> 00:02:43

Meanwhile, hadith is waiting for the messenger of the Messenger of Rasulullah sallallahu, send them and no one shows.

00:02:44--> 00:03:07

After a time period goes by, he decides I am going to go to Medina, to the province of Allah to send them because maybe the prophets of Elijah send them did not send His messenger because of some reason maybe he became angry with me for some reason. And so he went and when he goes to Medina, he finds the province to live he said, Live angry.

00:03:08--> 00:03:25

And he said, You refuse to pay this guy and you try to kill the messenger of Rasulullah sallallahu escena and that hadith says all Messenger of Allah, not only did I not refuse to pay, there's a God, I didn't try to kill anybody. Nobody came.

00:03:26--> 00:03:55

And so the verse was revealed in salted Herat, yeah, you had a lady in India confess upon being an innovator, but ya know, and to Cebu, Colombia, Haiti, for those of you who fail to anatomy, Allah subhanaw taala says, Oh, you who believe if a wrongdoer if a facet comes to you with news with never, then Tebay Yeah, no, verify it.

00:03:57--> 00:04:03

Because you may harm a people out of ignorance while you do not know.

00:04:04--> 00:04:11

This verse is a profound beautiful verse, that we are in need of every single day of our lives.

00:04:12--> 00:04:16

Oh, you who believe. When news comes to you,

00:04:17--> 00:04:20

from a source that is not trustworthy.

00:04:22--> 00:04:38

Make sure that you pause and make sure that you verify that news. It may be that you may cause harm. It may be that you affect people negatively out of ignorance. Why you don't know

00:04:39--> 00:04:53

the province of Allah, Allah send them in many a hadith. He warns us of spreading news without verification. He says in the Hadith as reported by Muslim guff I've been mugged a Caliban and you had this article Mr. Sammon.

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

This person

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

is sufficient as a liar or it is

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

sufficient lies that a person speak about everything that they hear every message that they receive, they forwarded into another group chat.

00:05:09--> 00:05:20

They don't even bother to click on the message to see what is the new source of this. They don't bother to read the article they fast. They forward it with just reading the headline. It's interesting enough I'll just forward it on.

00:05:21--> 00:05:25

The Promise of Allah idea was sent him says MIT cinema theater module

00:05:26--> 00:05:55

XAML, MIT summer theater what you need XAML what an evil thing for a person to climb on, is to simply say people said, whether you're climbing through social rankings, whether you want to be a future journalist and breaking news and you don't care about verification of information, whether you want to be the first person to share this information so that everybody sees that you're the one who did it, or you want to be the one who gets the most retweets, the most shares.

00:05:56--> 00:06:10

And so you don't care about how authentic the information is. All you care about is being first we live unfortunately in a culture in a time of place with the presence of social media, where it is so so so attractive to be first.

00:06:12--> 00:06:55

But we are summoned, rather we are commanded ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, Yeah, you have Levine Armand, who Oh, you who believe. And I'll go live and Mr. Moody says every time you hear, Oh, you who believe in the Quran, then pick your ear to it because either it is going to be a command that you need to follow or it is going to be a prohibition that you are to stay away from. And in this verse, it is definitely a command verify news. When it comes to you from an untrustworthy service, the province of Allah it was in the Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in the hands that He prohibited three things, tailor wakad workflow to Sueann whatever item man, the

00:06:55--> 00:07:38

province of Allah is sending them prohibited. Kilo a con, he said, she said, again, that mindless gossip, that mindless sharing of information, Allah subhanaw taala criticizes the companions or some of the companions and slaughter note. Allah says if the Lakota will be Elsie unethical, what a coluna be of why he could Maricella can be and what does the Buddha who Hanaa Oh, who am Allah Allah, Allah says, you caught it, the news of the this, the this the the slander of a SHA, Allah says you caught it with your tongues. He didn't say you catch it with your ears, they caught it with their tongues, it's if it's a relay race, they didn't even allow for the information to settle into

00:07:38--> 00:07:50

their heart. They didn't even allow it to pass through their the checks and balances of their mind or the filter of their mind. They didn't even hear it properly, but they're just catching it with their tongues and they're off sharing it with somebody else. It's like the game of telephone.

00:07:51--> 00:07:54

Allah says it's still a covenant will be enough to come you caught it with your tongues.

00:07:56--> 00:07:58

And you say that which you have no knowledge of.

00:07:59--> 00:08:05

It is incredibly damaging to people. When news is spread about them.

00:08:06--> 00:08:13

That is unverified. It is incredibly damaging to businesses, when news is spread about them that's unverified.

00:08:15--> 00:08:15


00:08:17--> 00:08:35

how many times has this happened? There are so many examples. How many times that we've seen something take over Muslim social media. This person was harmed this person had Islamophobic attack against them this, this, this this. And then everybody is up in arms. This person's business I remember give you one example. There was one restaurant.

00:08:37--> 00:08:45

I don't know if the restaurant was Muslim or non Muslim, but it was the restaurant owner. And unfortunately for him, on one occasion, a Muslim influencer, walked into that restaurant

00:08:47--> 00:08:48

with a group of people.

00:08:49--> 00:09:07

And a video is recorded by this Muslim influencer to all of their followers saying, this person, this restaurant, hates Muslims, this restaurant is Islamophobic this restaurant didn't treat us properly because of this. And because we look Muslim and because Because Because Because.

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

And everybody's up in arms.

00:09:12--> 00:09:19

And everybody, actually not everybody, but many people go on to this restaurants Google ranking, and they rate them down.

00:09:20--> 00:09:38

And so this very popular restaurant that had a very high rating, their rating drops by one or two points, which is a disaster. You can imagine this person spending years and hundreds, if not 1000s of interactions with customers to build up that reputation in a moment. It is harmed so severely.

00:09:40--> 00:10:00

And then after a couple of days happens, other people share that they were actually in the restaurant at the same time. And it had nothing to do that confrontation had nothing to do with Islam or, or or anything. It had to do with that group of people coming in, being very obnoxious trying to move tables that shouldn't be

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

moved to trying to impose their will on the restaurant. And then when they met resistance from the staff,

00:10:08--> 00:10:09

they immediately went online.

00:10:11--> 00:10:29

And those people who went online and they immediately ranked that person and they brought down his ranking, that is called false witness. That is called she had to zoom Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said, Shall I not tell you about the worst of sins? He said the first is a critical biller.

00:10:31--> 00:11:08

And then the second he says or who can validate that you show cruelty to parents. And then number three, the narrator settles with Allah says Adam was leaning back. And then he sat up. And he said, we'll call it zoo was you had that zoo, that a person bears false witness? You didn't witness something, but I'm gonna go and rent to this guy as if I had bad service there too. You aren't there. You've never been there. But you're bearing false witness, the province of a light isn't gonna call that to be one of the worst of since. And so the importance of verifying information, the prophets of Allah it was in them he describes on the Hadith, it's in Buhari.

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

On the night of Elissa, when Meloche, he saw a man who had an iron hook, and he was ripping his cheeks, this cheek gets ripped, and then he would rip the other. And by the time that he ripped the second, the first one would have healed and he was just doing that in perpetuity.

00:11:28--> 00:11:29

And when he asked

00:11:31--> 00:11:37

God or he asked the angels who was this person, tell me what this person was doing. They said this is a person who lied.

00:11:38--> 00:11:41

And his lie spread all over the world.

00:11:42--> 00:12:06

It is very dangerous at times to go viral. For person has a tweet that gets 20,000 retweets or what have you, that person shouldn't be nervous. I hope what I said was true. And a person should care very much to not be of those who share that which is unverified that they be of those who are considered with Allah subhanaw taala to be liars. Apolo Master Master Mustafa OLALIA we're looking for stuff you don't know love. All right.

00:12:11--> 00:12:23

hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah while at Cibus MC MC Fira, what is the information that's most deserving of being verified? The most deserving information to be verified is that which comes from Rasul Allah cellulitis.

00:12:24--> 00:12:41

And unfortunately, we see this a lot, where people are forwarding a hadith that are unverified. Therefore IG stories about the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam that are unverified. And they're just make it your habit. That when you receive something before you share it, that you check it yourself.

00:12:43--> 00:13:00

Don't be someone who shares information about a pseudo loss on the light is telling them that is incorrect. Especially when we have our disposal and hamdulillah with the ease of access of the internet, we have so much access to be able to verify ourselves to be very, very careful. Number two,

00:13:01--> 00:13:09

don't be a person who rushes to break the news cycle. Allah Subhana Allah data he says, well either Jehovah Amina me oh, well, hopefully I that obey.

00:13:10--> 00:13:39

There were people who every time news what happened, whether it was good news or whether it was bad news, they would rush to go share it. I want you to na mama even considered when he in his Tafseer of this verse, He gives a story he mentions many of the ideas that I shared with you just now. But he also mentions the story of an embodiment of hip hop. When a man came to him and he said there's huge news that happened in Medina almost said what he said the prophets of Allah they send them divorced his wife's

00:13:41--> 00:13:46

I want you to think about all the grief that just happened to him. I don't know his what his daughter is one of the wives of the provinces I love

00:13:47--> 00:14:24

all of the angst, all of the grief all of the the aroma Radi Allahu immediately rushes to Medina, he was outside and he lost his daughter have served in the province of Allah they send them divorce you she says I don't know. She was crying. And then Omar Abdullah and who goes to the Sula cellulitis and then because he's Irma, and so he goes immediately to the province of Allah, they send them when he gets access to him. He says, Did you divorce your wife's prophets? Allah Allah, Allah Islam says no, I'm gonna say Allahu Akbar. All of this is spreading in Medina, the province of ally descendants, divorces wiser OH MY GOD, ALLAH and who is wise enough to go immediately to the source

00:14:24--> 00:14:30

if he can verify it. So the importance of verifying news and the importance of practicing patience,

00:14:32--> 00:14:33

the province of alladia syndrome

00:14:35--> 00:14:53

when the tribe of Abdullah pace came to accept Islam, and this hadith is a Muslim, they were they were believers. And so they were so excited. People immediately dismounted and ran into Mr. De Naboo. To meet the province of ally they said them so that they could kiss his hands and feet.

00:14:55--> 00:14:58

Except for one person, unless judge

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

He tied down everybody's camels. He basically parked everybody's cars. And then he had clothes that he had packed, and he's coming from a journey.

00:15:13--> 00:15:36

And so he changed his clothes into fresh clothes. Everybody else couldn't wait. They rushed into the masjid. And he's taking his time. He's changing his clothes. And so when he walks in the province of Allah, it was sitting and he says to him, you have two qualities in the fika facility. You have boom ALLAH, ALLAH SubhanA. Allah loves. He said, What are they? He said, I'll help more. When

00:15:37--> 00:15:41

he said, forbearance and deliberation.

00:15:42--> 00:15:50

Forbearance you have the ability to restrain yourselves and deliberation you. You can be methodical, methodical.

00:15:51--> 00:16:31

You want to see the progress a little lighter, said I'm just like everybody else. But you realize that there are some steps that you can take. And so when you have good news, or you have bad news, be methodical. Make sure that you verify it. Let us be sources of truth. In a world that's gone insane. Let us be sources of truth. In a world where it is very difficult for you to tell who is truthful and who is lying. We ask Allah azza wa jal to allow us to be followers of the truth to love the truth to call people to the truth.
