salatu salam ala Rasulillah Where is Chef Amar
we asked him how modern dialogue that we're not allowing any drinks so we got him to take his drinks out because no Jews are drinking at the most
so he's the first one should come I'll try to sneak it inside the mug so I made him to drink made him drinking
shall mozzarella no leash
looks like he
without my energy drink I'm not coming back
as you know, the sutras in the Quran or matinees and Mechi Madani and Mackay
there is 30 Madani solos, how many sorrows Madden is 30
Question What's Madani? Surah means
from Medina, the city of Medina so why we call them Madani?
Yes call it
they will reveal to the province of Salem while he is in Medina
type some of them were revealed not in Medina some of them revealed in Makkah
and still Madani?
Now I'm not talking about characteristic, I'm saying what what makes this sort of madonie or
after hijra, so anything was revealed after the Prophet SAW Salah migrated. It called Madani anything that was revealed before the process Allah migrated call Mackay to what about the surah that revealed while he's migrating
shallow in his study, Quran Al Pacino, but the point is, and is there is a case like this Yes, absolutely.
So, here we say that
30 su Ramadan okay 17 of them and 17 of them. Allah subhanaw taala spoke about hypocrites and hypocrisy
more than 340 verses about hypocrisy
had the academy Hakuna
that I can say the whole entire Quran speaks about hypocrisy and hypocrites.
The whole entire Quran
And that's why I think it's so important for us to cover the subject a little bit. Especially knowing that the lost planet Allah says in the Quran, Humala I do.
They are the enemy, the enemy, so be aware of them. So I hope today we'll be aware of hypocrisy, be aware of hypocrites. So we can abstain from it. And I will open the floor for that shift to carry on. So when you
when you open up sort of Al Baqarah right from the beginning, you see that Allah subhanaw taala says, The radical Kitab Bhullar a Buffy who Dyneema Tolkien and Allah subhanaw taala describes the believers and he describes the believers in three verses. And then Allah subhana wa Tada describes the disbelievers and he describes the disbelievers in five verses. And then Allah subhanaw taala then spends in
in two verses and two verses and then Allah subhana wa Tada describes the month 15 and 13 verses. And so you see this attention from the beginning of the Quran that's given to the hypocrites and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada describes them with different examples, and of those examples, but even before we get into the examples, but the idea here Well, one of the important aspects is as Shaheed mentioned, that you'll be aware of their traits, they are the enemy in every time in place, and so that we be aware of their traits and inshallah data throughout the night, we'll share some examples that will make this more real, but also that I mean, there's a habit of the law, and every single
one of them feared hypocrisy for themselves. And so we want to be aware of these traits ourselves, and learn them so that we can avoid them as well.
One interesting thing, or one fact about the hypocrites, they only surfaced after Islam came to power. You can imagine where the Muslims were being tortured and persecuted in Mecca. Nobody pretended to be a Muslim, right? What's the advantage, but when they went to Medina and the began to establish the state, and they had some power, then the hypocrites started to enter into Islam and Allah subhanaw taala and events would expose them every now and then. But like Shama was saying, when you you see a people like the hypocrites, and there, as we all know, in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala described that they're in the lowest level of the Hellfire in and when I feel clean,
with dark and as feminine and then the lowest level of the Hellfire, so the worst of people. So when you have people that are so bad like that you the first thing is you don't want to be like them whatsoever. So Inshallah, I hope throughout the night, we're gonna throw some of the characteristics of the hypocrites, and the whole point is that I don't want to be like them, and I want to make sure I don't have any of the characteristics of those who are hypocrites. So right from the get go this notion of the word hypocrite, and I feel like there's, we kind of have to qualify what hypocrisy means. Because people in the American context, or I guess in English, they when they think of a
hypocrite, they think of somebody who does what they don't, something opposite of what they say. And so, a person will say, for example, I will showcase my sins, because I don't want to be a hypocrite. I don't want to be hypocritical. So I will publicly showcase like all of my faults and all of my major sins that I do, because I don't want to be a hypocrite. But that's not what a hypocrite is. For us, hiding your sins is not hypocrisy. They'll say, I don't want to I don't want to hide my sins, because then I'm being a hypocrite. You guys have heard that before. Right? Hiding your sins is not hypocrisy for us hiding sins is Iman, hypocrisy is two types. There's the theological
hypocrisy, and then there's the hypocrisy and practice hypocrisy and in theology. The theological hypocrisy is when a person believes, or disbelieves rather, and they showcase Islam. So they're pretending to be Muslim, they don't believe and they're claiming, and they're, you know, they're claiming to be most of them. And you know, they might pray and they might do all of these things. They do all of the outer things, but on the inside, they're not well mean. And that's me who I am and Nabila who are below me. Lafuma, whom we want meaning you had your own Allahu Allah and Allah subhana wa Tada says, that there are those who claim to be Muslim, and they say we believe in Allah
on the day of judgment, and they don't believe and then you have practical hypocrisy, and that practical hypocrisy we'll be explaining over the night, but it's when a person the prophesy Center For example, He gives different
characteristics he says qualities of the hypocrites are four, that if they speak, they lie and if they
if they make a promise they break their promise and what have you. And so that's examples of practical hypocrisy and people struggle with that to remove it.
is one of three categories. We have Eman.
Then you have Gopher, and you have hypocrisy.
Eman has branches. That's right. What's the highest branch in Islam or Eman?
La ilaha illa Allah to hate. That's right. And what is so and it has the proceeds that the man is bibble was a balloon assured about 70 Plus branches. And there is another narration will call for Mithila Dalek. Even hypocrisy similar to that 70 plus branches. So also cooperhaus branches, what is the highest level of Kufa.
shirk is to associate other with Allah in the worship. Okay, so that's the highest level of comfort and should or to deny God's existence god. Okay, that's also could be the highest level of Kufa. So here we have an imam one of the branches of Eman is higher on the branches Eman is to clear the road for people so they will walk without any harm. The process Salam said that the same thing what can lead to higher short but to ensure I will go off and have no shame that's one of the branches of cover the same thing with hypocrisy, hypocrisy have levels and branches. Also, the highest level of the branches of hypocrisy are Allah sure I've been Neva is to not to believe in Islam, not to
believe in the message of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam not to believe in Lila hide Allah. And you just showing that you believe in Islam, but inside you really never believed. You only showed your belief in Islam. See carefully is not someone Muslim than doubt happening to him. No, no, I'm talking about somebody never ever Islam into their heart ever not a single second in their life. Someone who just claim to be Muslim, for purely other than God other than Allah, whatever the reason is, okay, so that's the highest level of hypocrisy. Then there is so many other branches, like we said in Islam and Eman there is a branch is called clearing the word road for people to walk safely. Same thing in
hypocrisy there is many levels. And one of the levels as we this is what the chef was referring to practical things like what lying breaking promises being lazy. So you can imagine the more branches the more points you collect. From each one of these three. It leads you to the top. It's like ladder one step one step one step to another. That's why in the beasts of Salah when he mentioned for character for character, traits for hypocrisy or hypocrites, then he said, and the one who collect all these for free when when I first met lumen Neva, that's a true hypocrite.
True hypocrite. That's why I'm paying for him. Allah said, each one of the character traits of hypocrisy are one of every character of hypocrisy leads to the top one leads to leaving Islam. So that means we have to be very careful from each and every one of them. Because it can be the reason for someone later on down the road, to leave the religion and to be a few full 100% be no hypocrites Oh, the biller. That's why we should ask Allah Subhana Allah to protect us from hypocrisy. And it'd be one acre who have seen the greatest sin maybe 30 Sahabi has been handled by him about the Hannah
like action of the Bible and her and a smart backer on Ebola Iran to Bible, the Bible and Omar Abdullah
Abdullah, these he made a lot of great companions. He said, I met 30 of the companions of Muhammad, Salah Lumia, half an NFC and they are all scared of hypocrisy.
Not because they have doubts about themselves because the fear that
that's why Mr. himolla There is so many scholars said those who feel safe from bankruptcy are hypocrites.
And those who never thought that two partners is something any one of the quality of the partner of partners is something that I don't care about. This is not me.
He already fall in the trap the shipper, so you need to be aware of. So you avoid it and you ask Allah to protect you and you stay very, very far away from it. Yes, I have a quality.
So the President said, The Hassall fragile, so when he has a dispute or disagreement with someone, he takes it to another level far beyond where it should stay. So I got a story for you there was, this is in the East Coast, there's just guy, he had an audio company, you do Quran and Islamic CDs and things like that he had all kinds of equipment and a studio, he made a deal with the chef, the chef is going to come and recite the entire Mazel Tov, and he's going to record it, he's going to edit it, add reverb, all that stuff. But they didn't agree on the terms beforehand. So the chef spent hours and hours recording, the man spent a lot of money paying for a man hours to record it
and to edit it and everything when it was done. They couldn't agree on how they're going to split the money. So the guy is telling me the audio guy, he's telling me Wallahi in every search that I make dua against the show,
in every sense, that makes the against the chef because they didn't agree on how to use the money and how to split it and all that. And this is a time of it the invasion of Iraq like in every systemic dragons, Tony Blair, or something for God's sake, George Bush. Yeah, if you make a list of people who deserve that you should make dua against them in every stage though, the chef who's a Harvard an Imam will be probably number 2000 Something number one so that's an example of just taking it too far. So be aware of when you have a disagreement with someone taking it to the next level and hating them and their children and their cats and Musharraf in the car had to take it that
far. You know and that's the thing with brothers we fight we have misunderstanding same thing with the sisters and then what happens next time I see you Hallas I smile we talk it out I apologize even if I'm not wrong but with the hypocrite because you're not his brother are in the past and they would would remain angry at people knew so many examples waving hello. He would like so so upset at incidents and we'll just hold it and then escalated doing we did the if eventually led to that he was so angry inside I've got a whole bunch of others but we'll take them up by this is a very good like you see this also an internet when somebody disputes with you, there is no limit. There is no
limit to how far he can get angry at you. And he can lie they can accuse you they will stick to everything anything stick alter video Yeah, no. Yeah, make videos make even three eight.
It's unbelievable. And that's court. take you to court go for everything you're worth take you to court. I know for example, somebody's got a dispute over money
something salary business oh my god and it became to another level they sued him for $300,000 He said For God's sake all the work that you did for me from day one to last day your work if I pay you fully which is I don't believe he deserved you don't get even 100,000 and you sue me for three $400,000 Extra
because they know with the lawyers and everything began to settle
and I tell you whereas I have seen this quality of hypocrisy appear the most
when husband and wife get divorce
law it will be for June well never there is no limit to how far she will go how far he will go. Even accusation everything in the past and all of a sudden oh my god there's a whole file against me and there is this there is that and all Kevin all line and all exaggerations.
They somebody said, You know what? I still remember a few years back, I caught you talking to a guy. I'm gonna go tell the whole world about you cheating, and this and this and that. And I have the record record with you when you watch pornography. I'm going to expose your online
and the whole entire dirty laundry comes out.
Be careful. That's the one of the sign clear sign of hypocrisy. And I promise you it will not stop there.
It will go farther.
I Salalah in the hustle my failure when they dispute they transgress bounds. I mean people are going to dispute but the point is don't transgress bounce. The one of the examples that comes to mind also is a
Her brother from
a message it that I used to. Anyway, so he was one of those older Messiah type like he just huge beard, you know dressed apart for so long, probably like 30 years, every salon till he just kind of became chef so and so you know.
And he used to have a problem with them other than he wasn't he wasn't the chef of the Masjid. But he was just one of the people who had a respect got called chef so and so. And he used to have a problem with the mother who was also like 70 years old. And whenever the wedding wouldn't like would be like five minutes late, he would call the dawn and do all these sorts of things to and so I remember one time, they actually clashed. So I'm seeing two very elder men clash very passionately. And this guy, Chef stones are with the huge beard and they're outside and he started cursing at this guy like a 15 year old who never had any type of via or any just like street language to them. And
His excuse was at the magic whistle. He was like, my,
like, my brain is like, it just goes left or something like that. And I'm like, That's nothing to be proud of. You've been in the masjid for like 40 years. If you haven't purified your tongue at this point, then what's, what's the point? And so he was like, that's that example of transgression, when you dispute right? People all of a sudden, take all of these Islamic etiquettes that you've been hearing about out the window. Another quality is what either had.
For ego that also, by the way, transgressing and dispute with brothers between brothers and family.
So be careful, this atone
not because your sister your brother did something small to you, you asked collate to the highest level and read Italia to her to her to her. That's not the quality of the believers. Corrado. Here's the de escalate, that they forgive, they let go. And then the second one is either had that occurred when he speaks, they they lie.
They hammer and they lie and they think about lying, I'll tell you, the moment it catches your tongue. If you used to lie, you will be in the habit of lying.
It became a habit and you keep lying and lie. That's why it's said I've never read Hadith from someone who lies even if his lie has nothing to do with the religion because it will very contagious.
Whoever lie about the regular things will end up lying about religion and everything else. And you will not stop you find yourself lie for no reason even. That's why in the beginning Salam said what my salah had to do yet to humble Kevin will lie and will
make things up just for no reason, just a lie.
Until he will be known to Allah as a liar.
And that will lead that person to to help file and you can see today how much lions in our life. One time I was at.
I met with a friend of mine and we met this this brother just we were meeting him for the first time the brother mentioned that he's from Yemen. And so the brother who was with me he goes, Oh mashallah, I've been to Yemen and this and this and this and this and they're talking about Yemen and stuff like that. And then when when the guy leaves, like this guy, I know I said, When did you go to Yemen? He said I've never been to Yemen
like why did you say you went to Yemen he's like make dua for me. It's like such a bad habit. Like it's like wow, I was like you didn't benefit anything from that there's no like reason for us to have done it. He's like, just make dua for me. It's like such a bad habit.
It's an illness which habit model that is. Wow. Those people can light your face with it with a straight face.
Smile. Politician. Just kidding. Yeah. That's that's part of it. That's that's part of it. But there is people just became so used to accustomed to lying. You know, I give you an example. A lot of people lie, for example, about their credential.
Okay. Well also lie about their past about their past and about, you know, what they have accomplished in life for business, whatever reason, just to impress people. You know, one of the form of fly is to claim what you don't have ly besito resume and motor shipment.
He claimed things that he doesn't have or she doesn't have.
Act as if he is all this and all that and he's not.
You know what, just be yourself. Don't cheat yourself. Lying is a very bad habit and one of the major sin in Islam, another quality. I just wanted to say something about lying. There was this whole team we had in the East Coast. He only gives sort of an Arabic but he was such a powerful healthy fighter caught up so he gave a hope about lying and that
It was such a powerful football. And the introduction was so strong, I just want to share the introduction. So he's speaking in Arabic. He's like today our chutzpah is about lying. So I'm speaking to you, oh, lawyers in the audience is smart, and he can dab an OBE for Kaleo. It's just like, it was unbelievable. And, and he just kept saying, You lie. Are you speaking to you, you lie who's in the audience, and everybody was so repulsed. You know, when these horrible touchy feely makes you cry, everyone goes to the hotel. I love Jehovah. I really enjoyed the hook. Nobody shook his hand, made everybody uncomfortable. And I was sitting there. And I remember, like, the idea of
being labeled a liar is one of the most hated things, even a liar. Wouldn't want to be known as the town liar. And imagine you have someone in the community and everyone calls them the liar. Tab, how are you? What's the latest lie telling me?
But worse than a community labeling you a liar? As the chakra, that's just what it was saying the Hadith, that You the man will continue to lie until he's labeled a liar with Allah. And it can you imagine that? Every time Allah as we're looking at you, that's the lion. There is the label, it says layer on it. And the last thing on state studies show that the that the average child lives from three to five times a day, and the average adult lives from two to three times a day. We'll see.
You know, surely you just mentioned something I didn't think of how you said like, anybody would not like to be known as a liar. I can't think of like a vise in American society. Except that it's been. It's been like, it's been perverted to be worn as a badge of honor. Except for lying. So for lying until now, there, there's no like people proud proclaiming that they're liars. Actually, there aren't those Well, I mean, but they don't have there's no face behind it. But like the people who put out these hoaxes and false news, I mean, I don't mean CNN. I mean, like, really, so and so died, and they're proud of it. And they put up this whole intricate detailed thing. But onion. Yeah. But
at least you're right. They don't show their face and say, I'm the one who made that live. Okay, the other thing when he I don't know if I'm going in the order, but when he makes a promise, he breaks it. All right. Now, there's something that some people will misunderstand about this hadith that let's say, I there was a brother once he promised someone something. So he's gonna deliver something, but that item wasn't ready. So when he met him, he's like, you know, I couldn't bring it because it wasn't ready. So that guy tells him when he
finished the Hadith, he promises what Jonnie, you're now have a sign of the hypocrite, but the scholars explained, and surely, if you disagree, please feel free.
mergia And the point is, they said that the hypocrite he makes the promise, well, internally at that moment, he has no intention of meeting you. Next Wednesday, Bismillah, five o'clock, you'll find me that and he internally, he knows next Wednesday, he's at the airport, and he's the caller from Sharla. I'll see you next Wednesday go to him. And but when you're sincerely saying next Wednesday, then your car blows up and your engine blows up. You can't you're not a hypocrite because you had that one quality. So that's the difference. And on that note, I'd like to say I have this technique I use with people to see if they're sincere. Okay, let's just keep this between us. All right. So,
this happened I was I had some kind of lecture I was giving at a university and I was also like the MSA president. So I would walk around campus inviting people to the lecture, I run to these four guys they're standing around and like we have a lecture today at three o'clock it's about this this this this? I'd like to see you I purposely didn't tell them the room. I just told them at three o'clock it's a big campus and in sha Allah inshallah you will see us there's three o'clock Shalom CodeMark Bismillah you'll see us and I keep saying hello see you Charla the so we'll see you but I didn't tell you the room or the building. And
sometimes I do it with my phone. Like the guy's looking shallow contact you like haulers contact me at last one, my number. But are you serious? Are you just faking it right now? Yeah, I mean, breaking promises is very, like I give you one of the common examples is basically when you promise to take responsibility, then you completely dropped the ball. You know, like so many times, people take this very lightly. You know, like, hey, we need volunteers to do 123 And they never show up after the utility coming.
That that's that's a sign of hypocrisy. Somebody for example, promised you to pay you back your debt. And he never done.
He never did. I never care.
Somebody promise his wife to give her the Mahara
Gotta get married. And he never gives her her dowry. Hello, sweetheart your money is my money and is everything is my money. You know, it does somebody make a promise to you, too, for example to
to commit and they break the promise, and they keep breaking and breaking and breaking it. And when they make this promise not because breaking it because of excusing because they've never really cared for it.
Its outcome, they never really have the real intention to do it. And that's where the hypocrisy comes from.
Because they're outside different than what's inside
the outside. So I'm coming the inside he never ever want it never entered his heart that he's coming. It's like the major one. I'm Muslim, but it's really never entered his heart. Some aroma s&m? I'm gonna mind why? And move them out of
the way a little bit. No, it is hard.
Okay, so just when the person makes these promises, and they break their promises, what is the consistent tool that the hypocrite keeps in their toolbox? What is the number one tool that they use to save face?
Yes. Not lying. Well, yes, lying. But what is it no matter? Excuses. My car broke down here the kids do. Right? So it's excuses. And so just to give you like a glimpse, the difference between God and the medical biller on who and at some odd hypocrites is that God did not participate in the campaign have to book but when he came in the province that Allah has sent him came from the campaign and everybody who didn't participate because they were, they were obligated to go, he went and he sat in front of the Prophet salallahu Salam and he said, I can argue my way out of anything, and I've been given talent and skill and argumentation. But I know that if I make an excuse Allah will be angry
with me and you'll be angry with me I have no excuse. I got no excuse. And so excuses being a tool of and of course, the hypocrites came and every single one of them had an excuse and they said our houses were unprotected and what have you and the prophesy centum accepted their excuses. So this notion of excuse is not something that you then use to to quiz other people like the chef was mentioning, you know, testing other individuals and saying, if if you speak you lie or if you promise you're gonna break your promise, but that you use it as an internal metric that I don't make excuses for myself. I don't make excuses if I promised I mean it and if I make that promise, then I
try my best to fulfill that promise. But if someone comes to you with an excuse, except their excuses, the province little white instead of them accepted those excuses and you leave people's internal affairs with Allah Subhana Allah and Allah knows best. I'm gonna recite verses, okay, three verses, and I want you guys to amount if you don't mind to translate, and I want you guys to figure out how many qualities of hypocrisy is there. Okay. And so what about Allah Allah Allah says,
Amin in CMA or gebouw kappa
duniya while you Shahidullah Hana mafia but it will be
Wi Fi that will fill out all this the way that one nurse fill out when you see their fee where you really can help though Anas Walla Walla, you
tapping for that tool is to believe for her spoon Jahan sent me
so Allah says, and of the people as he whose speech pleases you in the worldly life and he calls Allah to witness as to what is in his heart, that he's the fiercest of opponents. And when he goes away he strives throughout the land to cause corruption Theron and destroy his crops and animals and Allah does not like corruption. Allah does not love corruption. And when it is said to him fear Allah pride in the sin takes hold of him sufficient for him is hellfire. And how wretched is the resting place? fiercest opponents Yeah, I would say also better transition that that led to his arm. He is so aggressive
arguing his case.
Like are you also aggressive in argue argue aggressively just to defend himself
So how many traits of hypocrisy are in those verses? That's your read. It's so fast. Okay, let me read it slower. So just pointing stop me when you hear one.
Here we go.
you're flipping over me, okay? And when
he and other people they see whose speech pleases you in the worldly life. And he calls a lot to witness as to what is in his heart. Can you explain what that means? And of the people is he who speech pleases you in the worldly life?
anyone, even us? So I like, like this, you know, they're in their language. They're on your side, they're there. The language is strong. I want to recite this verse.
Allah subhana, Allah says, We're Aqsa mobila. He just had a man in Latin America whom they
need, they come and they swear, the strongest of oats, this these are the hypocrites Allah's describing. So they come to the province and salam, and they swear by the strongest oath will lead the La ilaha illa, who went under the ear of Osama bin Laden, Ahmed, some powerful, powerful oath, if you commend this Jarocin Allah to God for jihad, Allah who we will go by, then I will work to ever do that. One day just come to the person with the La ilaha illa, who also the life he told us to go out, I will be the first one and never write, get his have to prove anything, but the hypocrites they come and they are their speech, where remember, I'm delivering this will lie and in
fact, I will have no evidence Hello, the leader of the hypocrites in Medina, every time before the person would get up and speak, he would get up and he would tell people, oh people here is the messenger of ALLAH and he like the effect of his living amongst you. First of all, who out here we LISTEN to Him and OBEY then he would sit down by what do we don't need your introduction, maybe sometimes on the member, and never ones are about to listen, but the hypocrite is the one who does speeches, flowery and powerful and I'm here and I'm ready. And then
when it gets real, where are they? Dust? Anyway, so he always speaking and talking and hear me out. But it's empty, just empty words and they're always making oaths. They're always swearing by Allah Subhana Allah to add and to bear witness to what's in their heart. That's why anytime somebody says, Well, why did he do Allahu Allah? I know that there is something wrong anytime you are again, swearing about Allah Allah in there's a question mark, you know, is that really right? There's something wrong, but the point is this big mouth and very empty, you know, just rhetoric. Don't be like that. Don't be empty like that. Empty wagon make louder sounds.
When the wagon is empty, it make the louder of sound. But when it's filled with goods, you don't hear that loud sound.
So remember that don't be like this. Yes.
About how many hypocrites are there in like in the world today?
They're about 5,226,000 You mean 5 billion?
I tell you
remember Muhammad Rahim? Allah was asked this question. How many hypocrites there
never heard of him? Allah said if hypocrites disappear. You will feel lonely in the streets and in the city. You will feel lonely
he's talking about the levels right he's not talking about the pure hypocrites that like people with sign of hypocrisy Yeah, if this appear you will be alone in the city
that's Hudson Boston he said the same thing
that's that's in that time
as it's so much so many people have the signs of hypocrisy
that's all it that's why it is good to always purify yourself from it.
So one of the thing is in this verse, it says I like to hear some arguing too much. There is some people love to argue everything they argue over that's a sign of hypocrisy.
Everything reason no reason argue argue argue argue Hallas just learn how to say okay.
Yes, dad. Yes, mom.
Not everything is a debate.
Share, yes, this, I'm not saying cancel your brain, but not everything, it became a debate, everything that you have to back and forth. And even when you back and forth, you're so aggressive about your point.
And the aggressiveness in your point has nothing to do with how much you believe in it. It's how much ego that you have
as what the dangerous part is. And that's not a good quality.
That's not the quality of the believers.
Then Allah, Allah said,
quick tangent on that point that you just made about argumentation. This is a secret that I learned after I became an adult, unfortunately, not when I was a teenager. But a lot of times when you're arguing with your parents, it might be over things that they're asking you to do that they don't really, they're not, they're not really demanding for you to do. So. One time I was. It's like, for example, when your parents says to you, you know, child law, you'll take me to hatch.
For some kids. That's an argument right there. I've got student loans, and I've got this and I've got this and you're talking to me, but it's like, all you had to do in that moment is to say,
Charla, yeah, it'd be my pleasure. That's it. Once it's there. One time she was, she was asking me maybe it was a couple and she was telling me about her mother in law. She's like, my mother in law is always telling me what to do and what to do and what to do. I said, Listen, does your mother in law ever follow up with you and say, Did you do what I told you last week? She's like, No, I was like, excellent. This is all you have to do. Ready? Say, inshallah.
That's it. It doesn't have to be an argument. Just let it roll off of your back. She's not following up with you. That's right. It's not in sha Allah just lying. Or just, you know what, that's a great idea or something like that. I really appreciate that advice, or what have you, right, just move it along. But it doesn't have to be a conflict, not everything has to be a conflict, a lot of times, they just want you to appreciate their statement to join them in that imagining in that moment, and move on.
Okay, quickly, then Allah Subhan. Allah said, that when this person basically spread corruptions in her that one of the sign of hypocrisy, spread corruption, to well there fell out of sight,
out of belief, see the fear. And that's one of the signs of hypocrisy, hypocrisy, hypocrites in the world, by the way this signs also exists in the country, but that's originally hypocrisy, the spread corruption on earth. Do you see how moving songs and scenes you know? ABS is just about all about spreading word corruption. And there is some Muslims love corruption.
Allah will never forget one of the Muslim who will unfortunately at one point, Allah, Allah.
At one point he was representing the Muslim community told me once Yeah,
why you are making it so hard for the this is what you mean. Sama hamdulillah the Prater away.
He said, and they go to Ramadan to pray a journey every day for Salam as to pray to mom, you know, and you guys told them all women have to wear hijab men has to do this. You know, let them go clubs, you know parties. And you know, it's okay to dance, you know to do this yet I want to see the youth having Muslim girlfriends I want to see and I see it in his eyes. I want to see this I want to see this. What kind of resistance he shouldn't I want to see
our youth free and
facade just corruption
will lie there's some parents they are happy when their daughter are corrupt and their sons corrupt more than them being happy when their children are religious.
the love key that the spread the corruption
there is people spend money
to spread the Haram
at sign of abundance.
And you see that right even amongst the Muslim community, you have a person one of the Muslims who like a sense in the ladder of you know, the arts or movies or film or what have you music and it's completely celebrated and everybody's so happy even though what they're talking about and what they're promoting is complete filth. But that representation becomes something that they're actually excited about. Right that's, that's that's a manifestation of hypocrisy.
Let's, let's see how many we can hit here. One of their signs is react, that they do things to show off to people. And it's not done sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. I live in Utah, you probably know and who has a nice statement, he says, the hypocrite becomes energetic when praised, and sloth or slow when he's not praised. So because he's doing it for people. So if people are praising him, he does more. And he's volunteering, and he's energetic. But if nobody notices his efforts, he becomes lazy. He doesn't want to continue from them.
And hence the province that the light is hitting them. He said that hardest prayers on the hypocrites are Fajr and Isha. Because those are the ones that people I mean, they were generally prayed in darkness, but people aren't necessarily aware of they go and they make sure that they're present in the prayers that people are aware of.
Also, if I can jump to one of the the, it's the criticizing of the work that the believers do. So Allah subhanaw taala describes the hypocrites as those who criticize Matoba in a minute, meaning those who the charity for sadaqa in what they give of charity, and so they're always that's nothing what they're doing. Oh, they're there, you know, this guy is giving a lot of money, he must be showing off this guy or sisters giving a little bit Allah does not need this little they're criticizing those who are doing work. He's got millions of dollars, he's only donating this right. You know?
I'm, I have a case study that I experienced. Not sure if I should mention it, but why not?
A couple of years ago, just to make us more real. Yeah. Can I have a request for the sisters in the back? I last week, there were a complaint about the talking on the site. So sisters in the back, can you hear me guys?
If there is anybody talking on this on the back, they want to talk they can go to the lounges mom's rude if they want to do that, if there is no moms with infants there, but if you sitting there because some sister are not here, but this thing and the sister side because they want to benefit too. So please, if you see somebody talking to reach out to them, and ask them not to talk. And if they did not stop, just let me know. And I will come ask them to be quiet.
And just to show you the effect of hypocrisy, like a lot of times, you can have Muslims great, your everyday average great brother or sister ALLAH SubhanA dices when he comes on my own at home that there are those who listen to them, they have an ear. And so they're able to galvanize the community to harm projects that Muslims are doing. And so I give you an example that I personally witnessed. We were doing or was in we were doing a couple of years ago, we were doing a webinar for Burma, if you remember, in Burma at that time, the Muslim community there was the most oppressed community in the world. Okay, they're being slaughtered and all that type of stuff. And we did a webinar to raise
funds for them.
The webinar did not have any female speakers present had invited some female speakers they weren't available. Obviously, just go ahead with it. It was all male. It was an all male panel.
A group that literally their name, or their their cause is to spread fitna in the Muslim community. That was their MO That was their their mission statement is to spread fitna the Muslim community, they see a flyer with all male figures, shields and stuff like that. And so they create an online campaign.
When do they create the online campaign, they don't reach out and say, Hey, guys, by the way, this is a problem. We disagree with this great work doing this project. But no, no, the goal is to sabotage this event, so that they can learn a lesson and people can learn a lesson. Forget that it's being money raised for the most oppressed people in the world. This is kind of American entitled ism, that if we feel slighted, then everything should be shut down. So this whole like trending campaign happens during the time of the event. And I was completely unaware because I was hosting the event after the event was over. And I realized that this entire thing happened on Twitter where
people were mobilizing and blasting and making fun of and all of that type of stuff.
I'm like, Who are these characters? And I started looking through
these individuals like who are and lots of great, you know, Muslim figures and people jumped on the wave because it was something that's trending. Some mountain alone, they listen to the Wright brothers and sisters that I know personally, they they they were like yeah, that's right. And that's why it's so important. quick tangent. It's so important that when you on social media when you
You're sharing things that you don't just listen to something that looks good or hear. It sounds good. And so you're just retweeting and you're sharing, you know, I didn't know we thought if he has this beautiful statement, when the whole adage they said, and it helped me a lot in law. They said that the the the, what is it? The judgment only belongs to Allah. That's a true statement right deserving of being retweeted. It's from the Quran. But what does it say? The highlighted are the ones who are raising that banner, he says, tell him to help 10 Euro do we have our thing would either be about it, he says this is a statement of truth through which falsehood is intended. It can
be that that thing that you're retweeting or sharing, it could be a statement of truth, but what's the agenda of the person behind it, go do a little bit of diligence, go and check out the bio of this person to click through and see what their tweets are, see what their their agenda is behind what you share that you don't be someone who's giving somebody a platform for something in any case. So then I go and I look, I'm like, Who are these people? I realized that you know, it's started by this, this. And I remember seeing just to give you like a glaring example.
One of the sisters, who was like leading the the cavalry against this, and she's making fun of the poster, and she's saying it looks like a poster for the Royal Rumble. It doesn't look like a poster for like she's just making fun of it. I click on to see, and I see that she's got she's added. Like if you can imagine the singer in the United States in 2015, who is the like forerunner of an fascia and then monka in America. She's tweeting her and she's like, You are my hero with no shame. She's like, You are my hero. Meanwhile, she's blasting the machete I think she's blasting anyway, to get to shorten this. I remember thinking to myself, who here is encouraging people to contribute? You're
shutting down the program, you're blasting everything. That's fine. Who actually said also, you know what, the people of Burma are deserving of soda pot.
There was one sister that was it. Everybody else was on that wave. And so it's very, very important. Like this stuff is very real. And it happens every day. It's very important that we don't pay attention that we don't be those who listen to the drums that are beaten by them when I 15 and Alyssa Python as best. I remember, there's a hashtag or somebody's sent me. My Twitter said Don't forget about her. I said, Oh, I am raising money for her and I put a picture of a girl from Bournemouth
but I guess you talking about Don't forget about me. Yeah. Yeah. The person who sent me it's Don't forget about me. I want to be in the course. Yep. But her no i I'm raising money for my sisters over there. Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, one of the hypocrisy is signed. And be careful this in alimony if you clean I will call you when Allah
You know Sana divebomb Uchu Sana, you're all alone and
Allah subhanaw taala says this has many qualities here. But he says that they are trying to deceive a lot but the reality they deceive himself themselves. But here's the second one. And when the stand up for Salah they are lazy. When Salah comes so lazy.
I will tell you, if you see yourself willing to stand up for things and you will make hours and TVs cinema and gym and exercise and whatever socializing talking in the phone playing games. But when it comes to the saliva and drag your feet and you see the heaviest things ever, and somebody tells me chef that is not fair. In salah I don't understand the Quran, they breathe through it you understand? Do you enjoy it? They bought about the portion that you know what he is saying which is a little cooler and subdued when you make the DUA and you make the and you make the connection with Allah subhanaw taala Do you enjoy it? If you don't speak Arabic, okay, make the salary citation
short, but make your record Institute long, where you will understand what you're saying.
But if you feel that's one of the sign, that's the something, see any one of these signs, it shows that the heart needs to be purified. You need to work in your heart you need to make a connection with Allah Subhan Allah stronger. You make a lot of dua that Allah purify your heart.
When it comes to solid and federal, it's so heavy for you to pray. But if you have a game, if you have a school, you jump if you have a flight you jump
When a game goes into overtime we get more excited or went into double overtime.
A little bit too long. Oh my goodness.
So are we done with the solid because there's some you're saying that they're they're lazy to get up for Salah Josie mentioned also they delay it till the next one it's like they don't want to deal with it so they keep pushing it off and then they just pray it right before its time goes out. And he also mentioned that that's what the promises set them described as the prayer of them when he waits until absolutely was almost over and then they speed it up. They just pray it quickly to get rid of it. I never forget this from Chef Jaffa. Idris Allah. He said something really beautiful about I mean, it's it's not his statement on it. But he brought it to our attention. He was saying,
I don't know what analogy to give maybe quicksand. You guys are familiar with quicksand. Like when you when you try to fight it, it sucks you down more. And when you take it easy, you kind of, you know doesn't pull you down. So he said the solid when you try to rush it and get it out of the way it becomes heavy, and difficult and long. And that's so true, isn't it? When someone's watching the shows commercial break, let me squeeze Lauren Brooks is a heavy, and it just takes forever. He says the more you focus, the more attention you give, the more you're that your heart and you will have presence of mind there, the lighter it becomes. And it's just so true. And so they keep picking at
it and like quickly making pseudocode fast trying to get it out of the way they're delaying it because you don't want to deal with it. And it just becomes heavier and heavier and every one of our objectives is to bring shift come as examples to 2021 I heard him mentioned cassette tapes a couple of weeks ago in the Friday Night Lights are commercial still a thing commercial breaks. No they're not. And I was aware of that when I set the example. But a commercial break where commercial breaks everywhere only on live TV nobody watches live TV anymore. So YouTube has commercials in the middle of a video now that's like a 10 second commercial break or on but the guy wants to make two cents so
the beach commercial in the middle of your Quran recitation. How many times you listen to a lecture you get a name, undergarment commercial
Oh, can I say something about you when you say that?
I just have this roommate let that point because they don't remember Yes. So when we the Kilala who tequila the tool is to believe him when he is told it took him that fear Allah he's taken by arrogance to do more to commit more sin
so I had this roommate anytime we'll have a look at this anger is a good close friend of mine so many times he told me I hate tequila right? And anytime I said that to him he would always say hola hola Medina. Talkin yeah Allah make us from an MacDuffie which is such a nice way because today people see a tequila as an insult. The early Muslims if you told one of them it tequila tears would come immediately. Today tequila is an insult to somebody tequila. You tequila is is like you call someone an idiot. Look, you're an idiot. Yeah, he tequila is not an insult. And that's the quality of the Mona Lisa clean. Tequila offends them and they start to get arrogant and do more sin. So
anytime someone tells you talking less Allama Jana majestic, and also shows that they don't like to be corrected. That's a sign of hypocrisy. If somebody gives him advice about something wrong, they do. They get so offended. They get so upset.
Yes, Malatya. Well, so we mentioned way at the beginning that the people of Mecca did not have enough up because Islam was weak. And then in Medina, Islam became powerful. And so the phenomena of hypocrisy appeared. Are the Muslims powerful now or are they weak? And if we say that they're weak, does that make sense then that there are hypocrites now? Why would there be hypocrites if Islam is not in a position of power?
The hypocrisy today, today follow the law on set. In the time of the prophets of Salaam, there used to be hypocrites. Now there is no more hypocrites. They first said the term of room up there is no more hypocrites now. Now it is a clear cover. That's what they visit. So what that means what are they meant by that? He meant like in the term of the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, people used to show a slum because they were afraid of being prosecuted and they because and the Quran used to come down to identify them. But now there is nothing like that or envelope identify them or Quran will not because stopped by the prophets of salaam after the process and died today. The hypocrisy
is mainly in the form of what of actions, you know these branches of hypocrisy. That's what's mainly today. So he didn't deny him part because by the way
In a Bhujia, which is a deviant sector, which is a very big sector in history, deny the existence of hypocrisy. They said, hypocrisy ended by the time of the protests. But that's not true. And the reason they said that because those people have a false belief about a man, their vision of Eman is wrong. Okay, so that's why the deny the existence of hypocrisy, but hypocrisy is still exist. And
there is plenty of evidence to show that. Is it safe to also say that there are, you know, fast tracks in society if you're a Muslim, for example, as a ethnic minority, or what have you, if you are a Muslim, and you say that Islam needs to be revived, and Islam needs to be this and it's not, you know, people will get all sorts of positions of power and wealth and
benefits. Sure. That's what, yes,
at least made a lot of
progress and so forth. And things that make us guys are frustrated. But the one time that really broke my brain was we had to use this a few years ago, for the community recommends, you know, the news when they have to informants, so now they have people who spend years in the messenger, when they're praying next to them, you're having all of this just find out that the guy is old. At this price. Do
you know anyone who's ever listened to begin with collecting information?
That's a major hypocrisy. That's a major when somebody claimed Islam, but he's not he's actually either a spying on Muslims or coming to destroy Islam from within. That's while Khaled for example, a very famous, iconic Sufi
Khaled. That'd be when he wrote his biography. He and Timmy Rahim, Allah when he talked about the meniscus when he talked about that a lot. They said, and this man, he claimed Islam, but the reality he was nothing but Xindian.
He never been a believer. He came just put poison in the honey, put poisons in the believer of the Muslims. And we do believe that is so many people in history have came to Islam and spread ideologies and ideas. There is people today that speak about Islam, and they want to liberalize Islam, as they say I've given you a vision of Islam that's completely against what Islam is. That's for and that leads me to one of the quality of the beliefs of the hypocrites, which is so common in the Quran, and repeated in many different ways that Allah subhanaw taala said, were either key to an answer Allah will tell you they also do not and when you call them to what Allah says and what
Muhammad SAW them said, they said, No,
we don't want and that start from Al Quran. It started start from Adam Carolla. That's as a form of hypocrisy from the people of Buddha and innovation. When did not find guidance in the Quran and Sunnah rather they find it and what the, basically the philosophers and the Greek and Roman philosophers and Hindu philosophers sets and it took to the extent the and it had the bottom layer stay method saw habit of Cyril Kabir. And when he interpreted Allah Subhana Allah said that he can keep tabula rasa Buffy who did it again, con and who Lisa, who then the most infamous me yet best phenomena yet
that he said that the Quran is a guidance only in faith and sharing, but not a guidance and upheaval when it comes to Allah.
That's that's a level of hypocrisy.
There is no doubt and goes down all the way to the average things. Yeah. Inheritance. One of the brothers who is he is the lawyer, or the user was telling Misha, it is shocking. He's a lawyer, basically do inherit shocking how many good Muslims put in the masjid and stuff like that? When they hire me to write their will? And I said to them, that's haram, I cannot do this. Well, I will not do it. That's against my Deen. I will not do it even if you don't hire me. And they said no, I will not follow the Sharia. That's not right. That's not fair. That's not good for my daughter. That's not good for my son.
Husband and wife.
dispute over business tan come to tell you what Allah says no.
Complete rejections to the to the ruling of Sharia.
There is a difference between you saying I know that this is right and
I am sinful I am weak in My Eman
but there is another level when you say I don't care
when you reject it and you're not willing to adhere to it
I'm wanting to talk to you but with all of them the Quran and Sunnah
and worst of all of them
you do not yeah and the sun and Autofit
a Saturn motor vehicle that they try to mix things together that's a sign of a partnership Be careful one trait that I will end in three minutes so so real quick let me just run this straight by you chef because I heard a very famous scholar mention it
and I wanted to run it by you and that is he mentioned because ALLAH SubhanA Dias says what you thought at home to educate you some that when you see them, the hypocrites their bodies please you and he said obsession with sculpting your body, body building all of that is a trait of hypocrisy. No, I don't agree with that.
If you do this, if you do this, but only this that what make you any you think that your value is based on just your book that's a sign of pockets. Well that's modern but but if you if you take care of your body and you look fit and muscles up and stuff like that, and you these kinds of the body, you know care about your body, but also you nurture your soul for and tebbit, Neff syllabic just mean Santa, you your your human beings because of your soul and character traits.
You know, this man is not to be fat and ugly.
You're saying the dad bod is not human? The dad bod.
Okay, you know, I just I didn't get over my middle life crisis. Yet.
You know, my midlife crisis appeared in my middle. So.
check. I have I have one. So historically, when when the Muslims will be victorious, the hypocrites would be grieved up Yeah, grieved and upset. And the sort of scholars mentioned, one of the signs of hypocrisy is to be disappointed and upset when Muslims are victorious. You Allah and we've seen it in our lifetime. Again, and again.
How Aslan? How rare is it when we see some kind of victory for the Muslims. And then you'll find this guy, he's angry. Sometimes he's angry because the group that produced his victory is like, you know, they're in competition with us. So I'm not happy that the Muslims received this victory, and he's upset or if it's something military, and Muslims are victorious in something like I said, it's kind of rare these days, but the person is upset that they were victorious. And that's one of the signs of the hypocrites, bat. Maybe even just locally, organizations or something like that. Just supporting. If I can just get one minute. I remember one time, the first time I went to Minneapolis,
we did a an emotive introduction event. And we didn't know Minneapolis was a city like it was just like, what is Minneapolis? And then it was 700 people there. It was the biggest launch we ever had, I was like,
and doctor had to learn how to have a little law was there and he participated in the event. And he said something Subhanallah I never forgot. He said while I was kind of sitting with him, he said in my conversations with my lord, I would ask ALLAH SubhanA data to be successful. I would ask Allah to for an audit to be successful because I have no share in it.
I was like that's amazing. Like this is an organization that it's not my organization's not anything that I have a part of so you actually loving for another ministry to be successful and other project to be successful. All of that type of stuff alone was the day when we made a fundraising and we raised tomorrow maybe over $50,000 I was saying to myself in the beginning that this happened he said man I was planning to make a fundraising for the rest
then he said to myself stop I'm so happy that we raise money for another blast
I'm so happy I never there is some people that feel as if this money coming from our from our budget no Allah I'm so happy for them. May Allah give them more hamdulillah
so this is something we need to learn how to do the Yes.
A person right like if it wasn't more like,
Oh, I did this great thing. And it was like me like, like, they're not happy. Like they're just like disappointed in numbers. Or like
they're not happy for them because of that thing was something Islamically good. That's that's not a good sign. Yes. I just want to end with the quick point. Keep in mind
One of the tricks of the Shavon comes to you and tell you, you're hypocrites. So convince you to leave doing what is right and it is good.
You're hypocrites. Why you wear hijab poor time, the poor time better than no time.
You're hypocrites. Why do you pray sooner? Here? 100 I pray, not doing it for people. I'm encouraged by the group. You know what, I will do more?
You're hypocrite and the shaytaan. Use this Allah to make you quit. You don't want to be hypocrite, don't quit, do drugs, do it more.
Try, right? Correct your intention not to quit. It's too good to the opposite. So be careful from this because that's one of the very, very, very effective trick for the shape on real quick if I could just end with the shutdown on the automation. Yeah, close to Chef Ali's point, because I've experienced this where people try to try to hide a deed that's done in public. Now, does that make any sense? You know, people used to hide some of their extra or their voluntary deeds, but it is something that's done in public. You don't hide that. Yeah, Nathan, I'm not gonna go to do my prayer. So people don't see me there. And I'm sure enough what's showing off everyone's there. You
might think nobody thinks like that, but will lie on time. Some guy told me this. He said, Yeah, he the Sahaba were so pure. That if one of them opened the door of his house to go to budget and someone else sees them going to Virgil, they prayed in the house.
Yeah, okay. Okay, Michelle, what kind of nonsense is this? So that doesn't exist.
