alladia said, his method in correcting people's mistakes,
of the most important qualities that a person can have. And we're going to go through a lot of qualities actually, but of the most important qualities that a person can have number one is to have sincerity.
Recognize, recognizing that every action that we do, if it is not sincere to Allah subhanho data, then it will be rejected. And so we have to ask ourselves the question,
why is it that I am doing this? Why is it that I'm correcting this person? Why is it that I am engaging this person? Why is it that I am calling this person to Islam? Or why is it? Why is it that I am speaking? Why is it that I'm teaching? Why are we doing all of these things, because of the importance of sincerity.
We know that for an action to be accepted and must fulfill two requirements. The first is that it has to be sincere for Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and the second is that it has to be done in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet cellulitis. And number sincerity is that first ingredient sincerity is that first requirement of a lot and a lot the Allah Anhui tells us in a very profound Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu said, and he says that and also loss of Elijah Sydenham said that on the Day of Judgment, the first group of people that the fire will be kindled by
the first people that the fire will be Kindred by our three categories of people or three groups of people. The first he says, is the scholar, or the codon, the person who is the decider of the Quran, and ALLAH SubhanA, Allah will bring that person forth, and he'll mention to him all of his blessings, that he's given that person, and that person won't deny any of them. And then Allah will say to them, what did you do with those blessings, and the man will say, I taught your book.
Now normally, the person who's the teacher of the book is the best of the people, the Prophet sallallahu they said themselves in the famous hadith of commandment I find a little comenta animal Quran, where Allah the best of you are those who learn the Quran and teach it.
That person is normally the best in any community in any OMA that person would be the best on the day of judgment. And yet, the progress of Elijah send them tells us that this is one of the people whom the file will be kindled with on the Day of Judgment. Why Allah subhanho data after that person says to Allah, what I did with your blessings is that I taught your book Allah who will say to him you like,
and the angels will say, you like you did it so that the people could say that you are a God it
or you did it so that the people can say that you are a Adam.
And it was set, and it was set, meaning you got what you wanted. In the dunya, you got preferential treatment, you got a whole lot of respect. Your ego was stroked every day of your life. You got it.
And then that person will be commanded to be dragged on their face into the hellfire.
And then another person, the second person will be brought forth as a person who was a joke, but someone who was very generous, someone who parted frequently with something that is made very desirable to people, which is well, Allah subhanho wa Taala will call for that person and he'll recount to him his blessings in the mountain won't deny any of them. And then he will say, What did you do with these blessings?
Say I didn't find a path in your way, except that I spent. They needed an Islamic school, I supported the Islamic school, they wanted to build the message, I built the message they wanted this organization and that organization needed assistance this cause and that relief agency, I didn't find a cause except that I spent in your way.
Allah subhanho data will then say you lied.
And again, remember that the person who gives in the path of Allah,
Earth might have not followed the law and who purchased paradise twice.
The first time when the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Who will purchase the well of Roma who will purchase the will of Roma and
they will have Paradise because it was a well that the Muslims needed and there was a Jewish man in Medina who had the prices very, very high and so if madmen and find came to purchase that
well from him to bring relief to the Muslims, and the man said, No, I'm not going to sell you my cash cow. So if not all the law and I said okay, well then we'll go half
or just the weld or will split so that I get the well on some days, the revenue from the weld goes to me. And you get the well on some days the revenue goes to you, the man agree to that with my made him an offer that he couldn't refuse or the Allah.
And so what did the man do on the day that was his, it was free.
And so the Muslims would stockpile on the day of Earth demand. And on the day of the other man,
they wouldn't get anything. And so this man's revenue dried up. And so he sold the rest of the Welteroth mammal, the lion who as well, as man says, I purchased paradise twice the second time was the province of allied ascending, fundraising for Jason Ursula Jaysh. Ursula was an army of such incredible hardship that the campaign of the book it was during the time of of the summer heat, which was also the time of harvest. And so there was the fatigue of going out in the heat. And at the same time, there was the loss of wealth of going out when the unsought were farmers and this was the time for them to reap the benefits of their farming. And so, the prophets Allah Allah did send
them for was fundraising for this army
and Earth model the law and who says oh Messenger of Allah, I am going to finance 100 soldiers with their horses with their cavalry with with their weaponry, rather, I'm going to fundraise that I'm going to finance that. So the province of Eliason accepts from him and he continues to fundraise. And then Earthman says, ya rasool Allah 200. And the Prophet accepts from him, and he continues to fundraise. And then Earth model the Allah, Allah says, O Messenger of Allah 300.
And what I love about this hadith, or this incident, is that
it's very human. When we go to a fundraiser,
you may come, it's a fundraiser that's outside, or maybe if it's a fundraiser in the masjid on the 27th night of Ramadan, or something like that, you know, you're walking into a fundraiser, you know, there's gonna be a fundraiser, you, you walk in with a ceiling that you're comfortable with. You walk in knowing that, you know, I can donate $100, or I can donate $1,000, or I can donate
$500. This is what I'm comfortable donating.
And so as the man starts off with what he's comfortable with 100.
But then as the night goes on,
he didn't shut off his mind and say, you know, what, I participated, follow us. He
And he says, you know, what will maybe I can do 200 Maybe it'll be a pinch, but maybe I can maneuver this bill around here, maybe I can maneuver this payment around here, maybe I can collect money from this person here that's owed to me. I don't know, I can figure it out. Maybe I can borrow money from this person. I can do 200.
And then he's continuing to challenge himself. And then he says, eventually 300 And so when he goes back home, and he brings his gold, he comes and he pours it onto the lap of Rasulullah sallallahu. They set it up. And then the Prophet SAW Elijah said, that makes a statement that is worth more than anything Earth man ever donated. He says Marlboros the man, my file about the Earth man will not be harmed by anything that he does after today.
So the person who spends in the path of Allah
but this person on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanaw taala will say to him because up,
you lied, you did it. So that the people could say that he is generous.
And it was said, you got your name. On the room of the classroom that you built at the Islamic school you got your plaque on the wall of the masjid as a as a thanks everywhere you go. You always get that VIP treatment hugs and thanks and respect, because of the money that you donate it. You know, I know that one message
a brother donated $15,000 to the message.
So the message very far away from here, but
the brother donated $15,000 And then he came to the message on one day at gym and the guy just parked in the handicap parking like he owned the place.
people told him the brothers who are out on the street I believe it was for gym so you have all of these people outside and maneuvering cars and things like that valet Inc. And they asked him again and again. Can you please move your car it's not supposed to be here. Or maybe it was some sort of violation for their parking lot or what have you. And the man just know when he walks into the mess
shouldn't. So they go and they complain to the president of the board, and the president of the board, he then goes and calls this man and the man's giving him all sorts of attitude.
Very, very disrespectful. And so finally he calls him into the, into the office. And he says to him, Listen, man,
if you're acting like this, because you donated $15,000, for the message, Here's your check. We'll give it right back to you.
This isn't this isn't your, your house, this isn't a country club. Now you can do whatever you want. If you donate, you make sure that you do it for Allah subhanho data and only for Allah, you're not doing it to get anything from that person. You're not doing it to get anything from that organization. Allah subhanho data will say to them, you lie, and then he commands for that person to be dragged on their face into the hellfire. Number three, the third person is a person who gave more than or he gave more than
he gave the most that he could give.
That person gave his life. And Allah subhanho Daddles it's him his blessing to recount them to him. And then they'll say, What did you do with them and the man will say, I gave my life in your path. And Allah will say to him, because up to you like you did it so that people could say you are brave.
And it was said, and if you notice in all three, Allah subhanaw taala says, and it was said, You got what you wanted. The people praise You, the people respected you, the peoples made poems about you, the people recited your praise in their collective memory. And you got what you wanted because ALLAH SubhanA data hasn't been allowed and I urge you know, I did not know if he had mana shot or even looted. Allah says Whoever wishes for the agita.
Whoever wants this world I did not know who he had Manisha. We will give them a portion of what we wish.
Not what they wish they wanted to be a billionaire. They only got to be a millionaire. You don't get everything that you want out of this dunya
I did not know who he had Manisha. You wanted this and you only got that. But you got a portion of what you want it Allah says minor shall only meant to read for whoever we wish, some Madonna who Johanna, whoever made the dunya their their goal and their concern. Allah subhana data says we give them a portion of what they want it for whoever we wish, and then we provide them with Jahannam your slime and movement but Rura they will enter into Johanna humiliated
And whoever desires the Hereafter was the Isla HRSA who will movement and strives for the hereafter as it deserves to be striven for it.
Because it's not just a matter of wishful thinking that I want to ask that I want to be in Jannah I want to be in the highest place in Paradise. Allah says Whoever wants the hereafter but wanting it desiring it isn't enough, what Saharsa they work for it?
As it deserves to be worked for, wha hoo, I'm an admin. And they have faith. Those are the two requirements, having faith and righteous deeds, having faith and working towards it for Hola, Iike kanessa you homeschool and whoever does that, then that person's journey is going to be appreciated. And so these three people what caused them to enter into the Hellfire when normally they would have been the best and the highest places in paradise, their intention and so the first thing that a person has to make sure that they constantly engage and constantly reflect on is their intention.
So if you're an authority, who was the first person to be called any meaningful Hadith so if you are an authority is of the second as of the third generation of the Muslims, he is a contemporary of Imam Malik and Imam Alosa and all of these great Imams of filth. And he was he had a mother. He had his own mother, Imam Sophia and authority he says my alleged to Shane, I never struggled with anything that was more difficult for me than my Nia.
Why in Nahata, Takala Gu ID. It's always changing.
And the Arab say Well, I'm assuming in San in learning se I'm assuming.
The only reason why the insaan was called The inside is because of their Nithya
is because of their Nithya
Why am I so mele called Illa Allah who you're talkin Lavinia means forget
fullness. And so the human being is tied to their forgetfulness. And the pile was not called the color of the heart. Exactly. And now we have to condemn, it is always turning and turning and turning and turning. And so a person reflecting on their intention and thinking about their intention should be something that's not a yearly activity. It's something that shouldn't be an hourly activity. What do I intend by the actions that I do?
Number two, the second thing is being conscious of something that is very important. And that is a hot minute labia inhibition, that mistakes are part of the human experience and it's part of human nature.
You are not going to have a person who is without mistakes, you are not going to have a person who is without sin. In fact, those who lost the lie they send them he says, Kulu Benny, Adam Hubba, hubba Aina at DOE abode. He says every son of Adam, daughter of Adam, is a sinner. And the best of sinners are those who repent.
And so recognizing when we correct people's behavior,
that I need to correct something today and correct something tomorrow and correct something that they after. Why because we walk with mistakes, and that I don't be frustrated by the amount of me having to engage people and correct people.
That Don't be upset that I have to teach someone something once, twice, three times, four times, five times, six times, seven times.
Because people are prone to forgetfulness, and people are prone to mistakes.
Allah Subhana Allah Allah is amazed as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam tells us, in Allah hijab woman shall be laced at law, who Subhana Allah is amazed that a young person who doesn't commit mistakes, a young person who does not have an inclination towards their desires, and a young person, because a lot of our pressure and our lot of our frustration when it comes to mistakes, is regarding young people. Well, the default with a young person, the default was human beings is that they make mistakes. But the default with regards to young people is that it's even more so that their mistakes are mistakes of passion, their mistakes that have to do with Hawa that have to do with lust, that
have to do with these types of emotions. And so Allah subhanaw taala is amazed that a young person who doesn't experience that, and it is so amazing, it is so rare, it is so unique, it is so special, that we know that of the seven categories of people who are shaded in the in the shade of the Throne of Allah, on the Day of Judgment. One of those categories is a young person who grows up worshiping a lot. So a young person who grows up on the straight and narrow, they grew up at clique, they never deviated anywhere, they grew up going to the masjid and, and memorizing Quran and they avoided all of the major sins as they were growing up this person, his actions are so special, that on the Day
of Judgment, they will have access, they will have shade under the Throne of Allah subhanho data on the day where there is no shade except for his shade. And so my point here being
that we don't overreact in our frustration with regards to people's mistakes, especially with regards to young people, you know, I was making this argument.
This might be a tangent, but with regards to extremism, and how, you know, when we're talking about religious extremism, a lot of times, you know, you fear from it, the vast majority of the times you fear from it regarding young people.
1920 21 1817, right, that age range is really when you fear extremism.
And so, in a lot of programs all over the country, you have these programs of entrapment,
where the government will send people to go and talk to
security apparatus or security agencies will go and they will send people to go in and and talk to people and kind of lure them in to terrorism cases.
And so once we were presenting on this issue,
and we mentioned that
extremism in young people is not something that's restricted to Muslim kids.
Extremism walks with young people period.
Across the board, whether it's the 19 year old kid who's doing 120 on the highway, isn't that a form of extremism?
You're not doing that when you're 40. You're not doing that when you're 50. Right. That feeling of immortality and that youthful impulse. What about
recklessness with regards to the usage of drugs? Don't you fear that for young people more than you fear that for elderly people? What about recklessness? With regards to
intimacy, I got my young man here. So I have to use euphemisms. But intimacy, right.
casual relationships. Isn't that something that you see more in young people than that you fear. And so youth work across the board deals with extremism, but it manifests in different ways, with different demographics of people. And so what we do when we're working with young people, is not that we try to create young people who are not going to ever make mistakes, because that is incredibly rare. And it's, it's rare for human beings, much less for young people. But we try to put our arms around them and protect them as much as possible that the mistakes that they make, which they are going to make, but the mistakes that they make are not ones that destroy their worldly life
or their hereafter, that they are mistakes that are manageable, that they are mistakes, that will not destroy them. So recognizing number two point number two, that mistakes, walk with people and that they're a part of human human nature.
the greater the sin, the more required a person must be in correcting them, the greater the sin.
So what does that mean? The Prophet SAW Allah Allah said them was more quick to respond to mistakes that had to do with our theology, mistakes that had to do with our optina the province Allah Islam was very quick to correct those. So for example, on the day when his son Ibrahim, Ibrahim died
when Ibrahim died are the Allah Allahu Allah Allah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wept over him, obviously. And he grieved very much at the death of Ibrahim, but there was also an eclipse in the sky.
And so the people they were so close to much of their comfort.
Many of them were new Muslims and they said, Allah is or the heavens are grieving to the grief of Rasulullah cellulitis. The heavens are grieving with the grief of the province of Eliasson. So the province of Elijah has set it up and he then summon the people. And he stood on the member, and he said, The sun and the moon on that same day in that same moment, he said, The sun and the moon are two signs from the signs of Allah. They do not Eclipse for the birth or the death of anybody.
And so the province of Eliasson immediately corrected this minister, Mr. Jepsen, another time a man comes sort of sort of La Silla like they said, and he says, masha Allah who was *, he says, wherever you wish, or messenger of Allah and Allah, wherever Allah wishes and you wish. And so the prophets of Allah Allah has sent him says them I didn't eat in LA he need that did you make me an equal to Allah say Masha Allah Hua
say what Allah subhanaw taala wishes alone. Right? So he's immediately correcting that idea that no, it's not what you wish and Allah wishes, Allah 's wish and will overwhelms every human will. What matters SHA una isla and Masha Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah subhana diatas says, and there is nothing that you will accept that Allah Subhana Allah wills it the lords of the world, ie your will does not overpower the will of Allah ever.
Also, number four is
and this is so important. Being aware of your place as the corrector of behavior.
Being aware of your place, a lot of times, obviously Rasulullah sallallahu, Ida sent them commanded incredible authority with regards to his companions, they had so much reverence, they had so much love for him, that if the prophets of Allah, they seldom told them to do something, they would do it immediately. And he stopped them doing from doing something they would stop doing it immediately.
The Prophet sallallaahu Selim commanded that authority, now you and I can't go
and assume that we command that level of authority amongst people.
You're not gonna get the same response. And so for example, you have this hadith of your Ich bin pafa livery,
who narrates from his father, who says that I was with Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and I was being hosted
He's saying I was being hosted in the message. When the prophets Allah Allah they send them was hosting companions who are poor. So he was shacking up in the masjid with other companions who are poor and the province of Allah Allah was sending them he says,
for Hunter journals will Allah Allah Allah is sending a few lady at the ad yet I had lay for who the province on the license came out in the night he was just checking up on all of his his guests. For it Mombasa Han Allah botany, so he saw me laying down on my stomach. So I mean laying down on my stomach for Ramadan easily. So he kicked me with his foot, the prophets I send them kicked him with his foot. And he said, Do not lay down like that this is a lying down that Allah hates. Okay, so this hadith is reported by Ahmed, and it's authenticated by the body and it's controversial in its in its authenticity, and unbinding Lahemaa. Allah authenticated it. And that's why we have in our
culture of I'm sure many of you are very familiar with this, where you're not to lie down on your stomach.
And like I said, the hadith is controversial in its authenticity. And that's why you'll get different answers on this particular question. Is it allowed for you to lay down on your stomach? In any case, we have this incident, the province of Elijah has kicked this man. Obviously, he didn't kick him hard, but he kicked him. Nonetheless, does that mean that the next time you're in Ramadan, and you see people making actigraph in the masjid laying down on their stomachs, that you should walk up to them and kick them? Because that's
most likely, if you walk up to somebody and kick them, you'll get more than a kickback. Right? And then the answer is, well, how come I don't get the same level? You're not the private satellite is similar.
And it is amazing to me, how many people
distance people from the religion because of this attitude.
They think that everywhere were the prophets of Allah they send them was harsh, that they need to be harsh, or every time they read an excerpt from a Sahabi
that they were harsh, so that they should go and be harsh in the same way. So for example, there's a famous incident that's quoted a lot at least I don't know how famous it is, but it's quoted a lot.
Where Abdullah had pneumonia. A man came to Abdullah hypnobirth. And he said, I love you for the sake of Allah.
And so if it no matter what the law says to him, I hate you for the sake of Allah.
The man says, I love you because I hate you for the sake of Allah. And he says why? He says, because you make your eye that like the like the singing of singers.
You make your sound like the singer.
So I remember I was discussing this with one brother because this brother was starting to go down a path where he was he saw harshness as being like a pillar of the religion of being harsh and severe against the Muslims and all of that. And I said, What are you doing? Is that what the Prophet sallallaahu send them
was like, and then he said,
if an Omar Abdullah on who a man came to him, and he said, I love you for the sake of Allah and he said, I hate you for the sake of Allah because you make you're not like that. So okay, sit down for a second.
Are you going to
do you come out? Do you know who even Omar is? Even online, he's one of the five most prolific narrators of Hadith.
You know, in the stages of fifth of the development of this OMA, you have the time of the great companions of worker Omar Northman. And at the times of expansion, right. And then when they died, who did the OMA look to to teach them?
It was Abdullah ibn Abbas and Abdullah having their own mother and I Shut up you longhand NSM mnemonic. These people became teachers par excellence. These were masters, who were looked at by the entire Ummah and revered and followed for their scholarship. Even Ahmed has not nobody had been remembered as one of the greatest scholars in the history of Islam. And
so when he says something, keeping in mind his age as well, his seniority, when he says something, it's not like it being said by some 23 year old kid can barely get through drama reciting it properly. It's not the same, right? So paying attention to these things. A father saying something to his son is not like you saying it to them.
Recognizing your place and it goes vice versa, obviously as well.
A lot of times people who are young,
learn, right they take a class here they attend the masjid, however, there are not even just young, even elders. And then they want to go and teach a group of people that it's
very hard to teach. And that group of people is your parents.
The default with regards to parents
is that you know nothing. That's the default.
Not in the sense of you don't know anything, but it's very hard for you to convince your parents of anything. Why? Because at the end of the day, you're still a kid, they change your diapers and they saw you grew up, you know, Imam Abu Hanifa.
And he's this great Imam of filth right is one of the form of the hips, and Shafi said we are all dependent on the amount of Antifa. May Allah have mercy on them all in fill.
Your mama Abu Hanifa it was a famous story, his mom
would ask him for a fatwa. But she wouldn't ask him, she would ask him to go and ask somebody else that she trusted.
So her son is Abu Hanifa.
But she, she's like, I want you to go and ask this guy.
So I will honey follow the line who would go and ask?
And then that man would have no clue what the answer was. And so he would say, to the Imam, what is the answer? What is your answer? So remember, honey would say to him, the answer is such and such and such and such. He'd say, tell your mom, that's my answer.
And then he would go back.
Right, this notion of being very, very difficult to take from your children. I remember there's a another
chef who's very well known for the seat of the Quran.
Like when you think of Tafseer, you probably many people think of him first
brother was telling me when you go and you visit him, his father is always handing people CDs of Tafseer. And he tells them listen to this *, he's very good intercede. And he's always giving them somebody else.
His it's never, he's never giving them the CDs of his actual son who's like worldwide famous for his their seat and stuff like that. He's like, now my son doesn't know what he's talking about here. Right? So a lot of times, you turn around and you're trying to you're trying to communicate this information to your parents, and they're not listening or they don't, they don't respond in the way. So you're like, Is my father arrogant? No, Your father's not arrogant. It's just that coming from you, it's very hard. And so if a person is sincere, that's where the sincerity comes in. Remember, we talked about it as an interview saying last week, if a person is sincere, then it's not about me
communicating that information to them.
I don't care how they get the knowledge, I don't care how they get the guidance, I don't care how that appears, is their art as long as it does. And so whether it's me talking to my friend, right, because then what I'm going to do is I'm going to seek out the best way for that information to be communicated to them, maybe it's not through me, fine. I surrender to that. But maybe I have an uncle who my father always listens to maybe there's a chef who my mom loves listening to. So I'm gonna go and I'm gonna find that particular video online somewhere, and I'm gonna go and I'm going to make sure that she we listen to it together, or we watch it together, right? So I maneuver my
corrective behavior or I maneuver my method of correcting, I manipulate it to bring benefit to that person, keeping in mind, my place, as well as there's my station, as well as there's my age, as well as there's all of these things. Number five,
making a difference differentiating between a person who makes a mistake while they are ignorant, and a person who makes a mistake upon knowledge.
The prophets Allah, Allah isn't and would not treat the ignorant like you trope treated the knowledgeable companions. And so we all know the famous Hadith of the Bedouin, who came into the message of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and he simply you started urinating,
he didn't know any better. The province symbolizes and I've dealt with him very calmly, and the province of Allah, they send him simply, and there are two lessons actually, that are learned here, because I'm going to fast forward a little bit. But one of the other principles, though, that we learned is that you're fixing of the mooncup you're correcting a person's mistakes cannot bring about bigger mistakes. I don't correct x, if y is going to be even worse. If it's going to bring it about right now. And we'll give examples but one of the examples here is even in this the province of Eliasson, well, this man was urinating, he the Companions rushed, it was just an instinct, so
they rushed to go and stop him. But the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Stop, leave him. Why? Because if it was, if this man gets interrupted in the middle of that action, then there's going to be either he's going to start moving around, in which case it'll even spread even more, the surface area will be even bigger than the area that he was urinating it before.
or, or some harm will come to him physically. So the harm will be bigger than the harm of him simply finishing in this moment, but the progress on the light is send them that
corrected them and he brought some water and he commanded it to be poured in the place of the of the, of the Jassa. And then he told them, that the Messiah, they're not for this another time. Another companion
tells a beautiful story. More Alia, inhaca salami. He says he came to Medina feel bad. Yeah.
You gave him a dinner from the desert. And
he was praying behind the Prophet salallahu Salam.
And he didn't know that speaking in the Salah had become prohibited.
And so while He was praying with Rasulullah, sallAllahu send up a person sneezed.
And so when that man's nice he's insula, and he said, Yeah, hammock Allah.
And so then he says, for a minute, oh, maybe I will slaughter him.
So he said, everybody started looking at me.
And so I then said to them, what's the matter with you guys?
What are y'all looking at? Right? He has no clue that you can't speak in Salah. And so he says, Marcia no come from Verona LA. He says, Why are y'all looking at me? And so for yada yada, we would have AD him and I was fighting him. So they started slapping their thighs. They're like telling him shut up, be quiet.
So when I realized that they were basically indicating for me to be quiet, I was quiet.
And then he said, When the Salah was over the Prophet sallallahu Sallam called him, he says, Who is the one who is speaking? And so I send me a messenger of ALLAH. So he says, Now, he says,
For the EBI, who owe me ma a to more I remember Pablo, who Allah who accept me as an Italian man. He says, I never saw
a teacher before him or after him, who was a better teacher than him.
He didn't hit me. And he didn't insult me. But he simply said in the hi the salata, Elias mahavihara che omenka meanness in Omaha this week with tech beer with Karatu Quran, he simply said to him, this salah,
nothing is to be undertaken in it, of the speech of people, nothing is to be said in its of the speech of people. It is simply for to spear and take a bead and the citation of the Quran. You Say Subhan Allah or Subhana Allah Subhanallah Allah SubhanAllah belagavi Right, take be or the recitation of the Quran. And so the Prophet SAW Allah is recognizing when a person was ignorant and teaching them and he would teach them with calmness and the private cellulitis and then we'll teach them with a in a way that made them feel welcome and not insulted.
Also differentiating between and this is number six differentiating between sins, that
since in which a actually not differentiating, but realizing that a person when they intend goodness, intending goodness is not the only requirement
for reaching goodness, intending goodness is not the only requirement for reaching goodness. A lot of times people do lots of different things. And they just you ask them, Why are you doing this or don't do that? It's not from the Sunnah of the Prophet, Elijah send them the Prophet never did this. He never commanded to do it. They will respond to you and say in the Malema vignette,
barely all actions are by intentions. I'm intending good. So as long as I'm intending good, then I'm good, right? That's the logic.
But we said at the beginning that for an action to be accepted by Allah subhana data has to fulfill two requirements. The first requirement is that it has to be done specific, it has to be done sincerely for Allah and the second requirement is that it has to be in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Nisan
that me reports that Abu Musa and ash it came to Abdullah heaviness route.
And I've lived through this also remember we talked about that issue, and it's a pneumatic and I'm delighted that you add Abdullah having this route into that category of young Sahaba, who became entire schools
who the entire Ummah came to and studied from and learned from,
you know, it
In the science of Quran, you've got three schools from the schools of the sahaba.
You have the school of obeyed niqab in Medina. So this is, again the earliest Hobbit they were very busy with the Empire itself establishing the religion. I will walk around the law and who with the with the horrible Ridha over the top with Persia and a sharp and then Iraq
and Egypt. You have Earth mine, I'm not fine and I didn't have a fight with the Hermitage. That's why you and they didn't live that long after the province of Elijah and send them but when the OMA became stable,
that is when the Sahaba were relegated to the to the rule of teachers. Or this habit of the LOD whom were teachers. I won't say relegated it's not really respectful for them, but they were teachers, and people would come to them to learn from them. And so you have like full time students and you had schools that began to be founded. And so you have the school of obey minicab and Medina.
And that school was focused on the MaHA zeal Rasulullah sallallahu escena, the,
the Ceylon of the Prophet similar sentiment, it's appropriate that it's in Medina.
And then you have the school of Abdullah having a bath in Mecca of the Leiden ambassador, young cousin of the province of Elijah and send him who the Prophet prayed that he be given the ability to interpret the Quran. And his story is a beautiful one and he became one of the greatest scholars in the history of the OMA and I'm delighted to Ambassador School is in MK
and a lot of their toughest theatres with regards to the language of the Quran and what have you. And then you have the third school which is the School of Abdullah and wizard which is in Kufa in Iraq.
And the library was Rouge school.
A lot of it.
I would say there's a lot of fit in that school of TFC.
In any case, our blindness route is
in El Kufa
and Abu Musab Ashari, another great companion of the Prophet Sobald Nitish, then comes to Abdullah.
And he says, I saw something in the messages
that I didn't want to criticize until I came to you.
But I don't know if I don't see anything but good. And then I'm delighted Massoud says to him Well, what is it?
And he they go to the message, the message that will Kufa
And back in those days, of course, there's only one message in a city, there's only one message.
And so they go and what do they find? They find a group of people who are sitting in a circle.
And there's one person who has some pebbles, and he takes a pebble and he throws it into the middle of the circle. And so they're building up a pile. And every time he throws a pebble, he says said build me up, Say Subhan Allah 100 times. And so they say Subhan Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah.
So they do that. When you Lumia say Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah 100 times like that now, you know, handle Allah, Guru me as yet, right.
So Abdullah, who was rude walks into their group, and he kicks the pebbles.
And then he says to them, a simple statement. He says, either you are more guided
than the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, or you are opening up a door of misguidance. It's one of these to either you are more guided than the companions of Rasulullah Salallahu Salam, or you are opening up a door of misguidance.
And then they said, Yeah, Abdul Rahman, Maulana ilaha illa. O, of liveness route, we didn't intend anything except for good. And then Abdullah, because why does he say you are either more guided than the confines of the prophesy Sedna, or you're opening up a door from his guidance? Why does he say that? Because if it is something that
if it was something that was from the guidance of the Prophet sallallahu, who said no, the Companions would have done it. It's as simple as that. For you to do something with companions didn't do. Either you are more guided and they are you are basically saying you have access to information that they didn't have. You have access to a goodness that they didn't know. Or you are opening up a door of misguidance because you are doing something that they didn't do, or you are doing something that hasn't been legislated by the religion. And so they said, Oh, man, we only intended good and then he says how many people in 10 good, but don't reach it.
How many people intend good, but they never reach it?
Hello, welcome in Meridian Ukraine
in Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi salam, and then he says, The province of Allah is sending him he told us, how does nicomachea Corona Quran zu Turati him, he says, I see or the prophets of Allah Allah is sending me he says that there will be people who will recite the Quran, it will not reach go beyond their throats. And I don't know, maybe most of you are from them, and then he turned away from them. So I'm gonna I'm gonna send him and he says, I saw the majority of these people on the day of Nahata. One mile haulage. On the day of the battle between the Hawaii region, I've never thought about the law. And when he says I saw the majority of those guys were sitting in that group,
I saw them with the whole audit, because that was they took up a methodology that was wrong from the get go, they saw themselves as being more guided than the guidance of the private satellite and send them or more precise, let us say that they didn't feel the need to restrict themselves to the guidance of Rasulullah sallallahu and send them and the guidance that came with the companions of the messenger cellulitis. And
so I don't know what number we're on here, but I think we're on number eight. So number eight, is being just with regards to correction.
Meaning that you are just, and this is very rare in people you are just as willing to criticize the one who is beloved to you and near you and respectful, respected to you, as you are willing to correct the behavior of the far and the distant and the opponent and the one who
I guess is on,
you know, a different shade of the religion from
a lot of people are very willing to critic to criticize the far they are willing to correct the far. But when the close and the beloved to them do anything wrong, they overlook it. They overlook it.
So the Prophet SAW Melania send up. famous incident, a wealthy woman
had committed theft.
She was wealthy.
And it was it was it was going to be very, very, it was a very awkward situation for them. Are they going to punish her with the head the punishment
and so they sent someone who is incredibly beloved to Rasulullah Saba ladies and
to go speak on on their behalf. They sent Osama bin Zaid who sama is the son of Zaid inheritor. Zaid was the adopted son of Rasulullah send them so Zama is like the grandson of the province. And Elijah is That's how much he is the beloved, the son of the Beloved of Rasulullah sallallaahu remembers even advocates for a long time, he was literally called they didn't remembered the progress I sent him adopted him.
And it wasn't until
Allah Subhana Allah revealed the verses of surah Allah Azza Boudreau, humbly Abba, he called them call them to their fathers, it is better that the name switched from Zaid ibn Muhammad to they didn't have it. So his real Father's name
husana is come sort of solo Lasala lady I send them and then he comes to intercede on behalf of this woman.
So the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, he asks, husana He says, I testify if you had the men who do the law.
Are you interceding on behalf of a of a head of a a?
a prescribed punishment or a limit of the limitations of Allah.
And then Ozama says stuff really aloeswood Allah immediately Usama kind of recognizes that he's in the deep end?
And so he says, seek forgiveness from me or messenger of Allah.
The Prophet SAW Allah they set it up then gotta he got up and he gave a hotspot amongst the people. And he says a man bad for intimate Allah can lithiumion publikum unknown can either Sarah Sarika fie him a sheriff Turaco what is sad a coffee mocha if accom already had what he knew a lady in fcbd low enough Altima been to Muhammad sericata Nakata to yeah they have some amount of vertical morality circuit forgot I forgot Yeah, I did. Yeah. So he says
that what destroyed and hopefully he says the thing that destroyed the people before you
is that when the Shetty the honored the noble will
would commit a crime, they would be forgiven, or they would be left alone.
And when the poor would commit a crime,
or calm or
they would punish them. Does that sound familiar to anybody?
then the Prophet sallallahu. Sydenham says, we're living in fcbd by the one in whose hand is my soul? No Fatima, if Fatima the daughter of Muhammad stole I would cut off her hand
consistency and correcting people's behavior. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he says it and by the way, just a random Arabic tangent. There's different ways that you say if in Arabic, there's no either end in in either and glow.
So you could say
in sorry, but instead of a 20. Moving to Hammond either set up a throttle maybe to combat low self atrocity movement. All of those work. What's the difference? No. is used for something that is
No, is used for something that's that's not realistic.
It's not expected to happen. So the province the Life Center says low sell off at 40 Momentum Hamad? Why does he say hello here because it's not bathrooms not going to steal? That's not that's not something that would happen. Right? As opposed to either, which is something that is likely or something that's more likely at least.
So the province of Allah do send them says what destroyed the people before you. And so here we learn something that this is a cause of a high lack of an ummah, that whenever the people who are the wealthy and unknowable when those people are left alone, and the people who are poor and dogtrot, downtrodden, without any resources, those people are punished.
That is an OMA that is up to be destroyed by Allah Subhana Allah.
And in another beautiful Hadith as reported by imagine, the prophets of Allah descended up he asked
a group of people who have come back from Abyssinia, so the people of Abyssinia, they had migrated way back during the time of Mk. But they came back in the seventh year of the hijab. So you're talking about hey, but that year, when the OMA had the city of Medina had been established and strengthened. These people came back finally they'd been there for almost, if not a decade in Ethiopia.
So the province of Elijah centum asked him and he said, What was the most amazing thing that you saw in
inhibition, and adversity? And so one person said,
The most amazing thing that we saw was a nun that was walking down the street and she was carrying a vessel of water on her head.
And a young man came up from behind her and he pushed her until she felt.
So just some punk kid walks up behind this old lady, and he pushes her until she falls.
And so the lady then got up and she said, You will come to know o trader, then on the Day of Judgment, when Allah sets up the courtesy or the footstool,
and the hands and feet speak about what they used to earn.
You will come to know about this affair between you and me very soon.
And so the province of Eliason and then comments and he says sadaqat sadaqat. She has spoken the truth, she's spoken the truth. And then he says, okay, for your practice, Allahu omoton. Now you have lived life for him which led him okay for you like this Allahu omen. Now you have relayed the mission to him. He says, How can Allah subhanaw taala honor an ummah, where the poor are not given the resource to secure their rights from the strong? How can Allah secure or give?
How can Allah give doe fear or blessing to an ummah, where the poor do not have the recourse to secure the right from the strong public?
A long white veteran
a long white road or long white
shadow and move
I'm my daughter soon
shadow when Mohan my daughter rasool Allah
Hi Yan Fernleigh
along Miko Modern Law
hamdulillah salam ala Rasulillah. So mentioned the last two
I believe this is number eight
that number nine
Okay so number nine so a person is that a person be cautious that they're correcting of the monk or not lead to a bigger monka they're correcting of a mistake not lead to a bigger mistake.
So for example
well let's go to the Prophet summarize and in first the province Allah has sent him in Bata, he tells Asia and he says if it were not for that your people are Hadith who I didn't think of your people are new Muslims, I would have placed the Kaaba back on the foundation of Ebola.
So you know, the Kaaba isn't supposed to be a perfect square like it is right now. It's not supposed to be a square. During the time of the Prophet Ibrahim it said when he built it, it's a it's a rectangular shape. And then, during the time of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi salam when he was a young man, he was around 35, there was a flood that happened in Mecca. And much of the Cabo was damaged, they rebuilt it. And when they rebuilt it, they said that they were not going to use money that came from two sources, number one from prostitution, and number two from interest.
And so they actually came up short in their funding, they couldn't construct the whole thing as it used to be. So what they did was they shortened it, and they made it into the square shape that it is now. And that's why you have that that semi circle structure, the end of it indicating that this is actually part of the GABA,
which is part of the GABA. So when if you hop over that little wall there, you can't do it. But I've seen some people they actually are able to get through, but they'll move you out or what have you. But you're technically inside the GABA right. And if you're in the GABA, then you can pray in whatever direction that you want. But in any case, even though everybody was in there, they'd pray towards the garbage just because you don't want to be weird, but
the province on the lights and it tells Ayesha he says if it wasn't for the fact that your people are close to q4, so what is he basically saying? He's saying that the the way that the GABA is it needs to be corrected. It is a monka. However, for me to fix it at this point in time, you're literally talking about,
you know, two years after the conquest of Makkah, the people are still very, very new to this. And if you go and you change something that their hearts have become attached to you, and this is something that's customary, and you're talking about 30 years, they've been in this scenario, they might revolt, they might return back to their cohort. And that's a bigger monka than the gobble being like it is.
years later, decades later, I blindness Zubin, after the death of it. I've never thought him in the depths of an Huson. And then who said, what the Lahoma Hmm. End of the liveness. Zubin declares himself the Khalifa. And he receives bail in Mecca and Medina.
And he is being challenged by the medical marijuana in a sham the Romanians
and so Abdullah Abdullah Museveni the great companion of the Prophet sallallahu Sebnem. He's one of the young company
And he's obviously because he lived a very long time afterwards. And he was the first companion to be born in Medina after they had all migrated. I would live in his bed his logic is that this Hamas, the OMA has gotten used to it and if you were to change the Kaaba now, they wouldn't revolt. They've been Muslim for a long time their Eman is fast. It steadfast at least and so he extends the GABA and he makes it upon the foundation of your brain.
I've done many keeping him Erwan the Omega Khalifa kills I would like to submit his general hygiene use of crucifies Abdullah Xzibit.
And when I've done many giving more, one seizes control over Makkah, and Medina. He then returns the GABA back to how it used to be
just because I'm glad we did it. So now we're going to return to how it used to be.
So then the omae it lasts for however long they last. And then the Ibis its take over from the Romanians,
the next dynasty.
And so Harun Rashid, he asks
Imam Malik, and he says to him, because now that God was back in at square square four, he says, shouldn't we now extend the Kaaba to the foundation of Ibrahim like it used to be.
And Imam Malik responds to him with a response that the OMA has adopted ever since. He says, I do not want the house of Allah to become the playground of kings. Every time this king takes over from this one, this guy extends the Gaza, this guy makes it smaller, this guy makes it larger. Right? It becomes symbolic of each kings kingship. I don't want the house of Allah to become the playground of kings. And so he left it like that. And it's been like that ever since.
So the mooncup A person can't correct the moon car by bringing forth a bigger monkey. You have a guy, for example, very religious, and he's has to go to a party, or he has to go to a wedding because it's his sister's wedding. And so he has to go. And so he goes, and there's going to be music and dancing and all that type of stuff. And so he decides, you know what this is, that's a huge munkar, I'm going to go and I'm going to destroy this mooncup. So he goes up on stage, and he breaks the drums and he breaks this and he breaks that.
removed the munkar. Right. But most likely, you've now brought forth a bigger move.
You'll have people who sit there and, and curse,
religiosity and religious people and maybe even the religious itself, the religion itself.
And so now what you've done is you've introduced them and you've exposed them to possibly committing a bigger mooncup than before.
And Allah subhana data knows best. So that is making sure that the monka that you do, does not bring forth a bigger mooncup. You know, there's also a famous example of this Ibn Taymiyyah shuffle Islam.
He was walking by some of the thought of the Mongols, and these Mongols were drunk out of their minds,
completely drunk, and he just walked by them. So somebody said to him, said in Islam, he said, you know,
oh, Imam, shouldn't we correct this monkey? Shouldn't we tell these guys that drinking is haram? They're Muslim. Now? Shouldn't we tell them that drinking is haram? And they shouldn't do that and stuff like that? Shouldn't we correct that and he said to them, leave them alone. When they are sober, they kill us.
When they're sober, they kill us and they take our properties and we'd rather that they just be drunk like this, right? Because my commanding of the monka here is going to bring rise to a bigger
and then the last one
is knowing the difference between a mistake that has to do or transgressing your own personal limits and transgressing the limits of Allah.
How we should be and how the Prophet sallallahu sallam was, was that he wouldn't be ever bothered or he was very forbearance. Let's say he was very forbearing with any injury that had to do with his own person. Somebody insulted him he was overbearing. Somebody harmed him physically he was forbearing. But When would he be angered he would be angered when the limits of Allah subhanaw taala were crossed. He was very forbearing with regards to his own self. He was very
gentle and understanding and his dealing with people as they interacted with him many times in very inappropriate ways. The Prophet saw the light and send them was once wearing a cloak. He was wearing a cloak of Buddha that was very thick
very thick. And so this Bedouin comes up to him, grabs him by his cloak and pulls him on it very harshly. And the companion says, I saw the trace of the cloak on the skin of the provinces that this person is making a mark on those who listen to my heart. He's pulling him. He's a very harsh Bedouin. And then he says to him, and he says, Yeah, Mohammed, Morley him in Marilla he lay there in Duck. He says, oh, Muhammad, give me from the wealth of Allah that's with you. So he's calling him by amendment. very disrespectful. Even Allah never calls him so the lesson I'm reading the Quran never.
It's always Yeah, you hadn't already. Yeah, your Rasool. He never directly calls him and he says, Yeah, I'm never in the Quran. Even though Allah says that about every other prophet. Yeah, that must punto logika Jana yah.
Yah, Zachary Zakariya, yeah Risa all of this in their moto FICO, Rafi, okay, all of this is in the Quran. But Mohamed Salah is never and so this Bedouin is coming to him and he's even as wise we call him Yahweh, Allah. And yet this man
he comes and he says, Oh Mohamed, give me from the wealth that Allah Subhana Allah has given you. And so the prophets of Allah Allah has said them all that did was made him smile. He simply smiled. So definitely the Illa heroes Allah Allah Allah Allah Samson Maga HCA. So Muhammad Allah who Allah, the prophets of Allah, they are send them turned to him. And then he laughed. And then he commanded for him to have some wealth distributed to him.
We are responsible.
And we are required, and we should be angered when the limits of Allah subhanaw taala are transgress, a person should be more upset that something Haram is done, then be upset that someone's feelings were hurt. A person should be more upset that something how long was the than a person be upset that someone didn't take some sort of, you know, sensitivity into consideration? You know, there's a video and I'll end with this. There's a video that's gone viral this past week. And it's about some young Muslims who are trying to do something for their identity and their religion. And I have a lot of
you know, there's a lot of depth to it. But in general, their organization what they do, is they is they, you would say?
You would say they're, they're not?
What should I say? It's mimicking the Partisi. Okay, they've got a DJ, and they have non alcoholic drinks, and they have dancing pretty much and you know.
So a lot of the criticism that you found online for this was actually that a lot, the vast majority of the criticism had nothing to do with how that and how long, it had nothing to do with, you know, this is how long we need to fear Allah stuff like that. It was about demographics. And it was about
how come you haven't included more black people into this into this program? Why is it Arabs? And, you know, this is who are wealthy? What, and so my argument against that was okay, if there was a lot of black people, would everybody be okay with that? Right? Are we more upset about these things? You know,
these liberal values, as opposed to the limits of Allah subhana data being transgressed. And in reality, you'll find that that the vast majority of people that no matter what, how harm is done, they're fine with it. But if it's liberal values that are crossed, if it's something like racism, if it's something like patriarchy, if it's like these types of things, then that dunya is form without effort. Everybody gets upset and they're willing to build the to pound the drums of work. We ask Allah subhana data for his guidance and his forgiveness uploaded on several bites and Mohammed bidets I just didn't seem to feel exactly on the flip side on my
