Well, audio sent him his method in correcting people's mistakes,
of the most important qualities that a person can have. And we're gonna go through a lot of qualities actually. But of the most important qualities that a person can have number one is to have sincerity.
Recognizing that every action that we do, if it is not sincere, to Allah subhanho wa taala, 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 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 hotel room love the ALLAH and he tells us in a very profound Hadith of the prophets of Allah, he was sending them he says, that and also loss of Allah they sent him 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 are three groups of people. The first he says, is the scholar, or the codon, the person who's the reciter of the Quran, and ALLAH SubhanA, Allah will bring that person forth, and he will 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 prophets of Allah they sent him says in the famous Hadith commandment, I found a mentor Adam Al 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 province 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 lied.
And the angels will say, you lied, you did it so that the people could say that you are a audit.
Or you did it so that the people can say that you are a Island.
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, someone who was very generous, someone who parted frequently with something that is made very desirable to people, which is wealth. Allah subhanho wa Taala will call for that person and he'll recount to him his blessings in the man won't deny any of them. And then he'll say, What did you do with these blessings?
will 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 masjid, I built the masjid, 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 Subhana Allah Allah will then say, you lied.
And again, remember that the person who gives him the path of Allah,
Earth made him that I found out the Allah and who purchased paradise twice.
The first time when the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Who will purchase the will 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 man even 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. I sort of modeled the law and he said, Okay, well then we'll go half.
You purchase the well or
We'll split so that I get the well on some days, the revenue from the wild goes to me. And you get the well on some days the revenue goes to you, the man agreed to that as my made him an offer that he couldn't refuse or the Allah and
and so what did Earth man do on the day that was his it was free.
And so the Muslims would stockpile on the day of earthmen. And on the day of the other men,
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 was well worth man says I purchased paradise twice. The second time was the province of allied ace and fundraising for J shirt, Ursula J shirt, 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 to send
them 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 a lightest Adam accepts from him and he continues to fundraise. And then Earth man 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 going to 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.
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, call us, he
And he says, You know what, well, 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. Set it up. And then the Prophet still Elijah said that makes a statement that is worth more than anything with mine ever donated. He says, ma Burroughs the man my file Abaddon, young 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
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 and when Masjid
a brother donated $15,000 to the masjid.
And so the message very far away from here, but
the brother donated $15,000 And then he came to the masjid on one day at gym and the guy just parked in the handicap parking like he owned the place.
people told him the brothers were out on the street I believe it was for Jamal. So you have all 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 masjid and that's
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 that now you can do whatever you want. If you donate, you make sure that you do it for Allah subhanaw taala 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 Subhana Allah doubt it will say to them, you live, 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 wa Taala will say to him, his blessings will recount them to him. And then they'll say, What did you do with them and the man will say, I gave my life and your path. And Allah will say to him, kept you live. You did it so that people could say you are brave.
And it was said,
and if you notice in all three, Allah Subhana Allah 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 Allah hasn't been Allah did it. Now I didn't know who he had Manisha. olema Nurit Allah says Whoever wishes for the Arjuna whoever wants this world I did not know who we have Manisha. We will give them a portion of what we wish.
Now 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 didn't 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, Man shall only men no need for whoever we wish, through Madonna who Johanna, whoever made the dunya their their goal and their concern. Allah Subhana Allah says we give them a portion of what they wanted for whoever we wish. And then we provide them with Jahannam Yes, llamas movement that rural, they will enter into Jahannam humiliated,
And whoever desires the Hereafter was the either HERSA Yahuwah 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's the Allah Hi, sir. Yeah, they work for it.
As it deserves to be worked for wha hoo. I mean, and they have faith. Those are the two requirements, having faith and righteous deeds, having faith and working towards it for Hola, Erica, can 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 then 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're 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 Hatha Takala Gu ID, it's always changing.
And the Arab say well Masumi and in son in learning se he will Masumi and
the only reason why the insaan was called The inside is because of their NIS Yan
is because of their Nithya.
Warmer So Mia culpa Allah Allahu Yatta collaboration means forgetfulness. And so the human being is tired
to their forgetfulness, and the cult was not called the cult, 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 should 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 mess via television, 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, that also lost them alive. They send them he says Kulu Benny, Adam Hapa.
Ina baboon. 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, 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 prophets of Allah, they send them tells us in Allah hadiah woman shabby lace at law, who Savoie, 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 was 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. 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 worshipping Allah. 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 Subhana Allah 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 there 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 aptina the province of Islam was very quick to correct those. So for example, on the day when his son Ibrahim Ibrahim died,
when Ibrahim died, or 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 coffered.
Many of them were new Muslims and they said, Allah is or the heavens are grieving to the grief of Rasulullah sallallahu.
The heavens are grieving with the grief of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he then summoned the people. And he stood on the mimbar. 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.
So the province of Eliasson immediately corrected this Minsker misconception. Another time a man comes sort of Sula satellite SLM, and he says, Masha, Allah who worshipped he says wherever you wish, or messenger of Allah and Allah whatever Allah wishes and you wish and so the prophets of Allah they send them says to him, 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 is wish and will overwhelms every human will. What matters shall una isla insha Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah subhana data 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 alayhi salam commanded incredible authority with regards to his companions, they had so much reverence, they had so much love for him, that if the province of Allah Allah sent them told them to do something, they would do it immediately. And he stopped them from doing something they would stop doing it immediately.
The Prophet sallallaahu Salam commanded that authority. Now you and I can't go
and assume that we command that level of authority amongst people.
You're not going to get the same response. And so for example, you have this hadith of yet Aishe it been perfectly fiery
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 masjid.
When the Prophet sallallaahu de Sydenham was hosting companions who were poor. So he was shacking up in the masjid with other companions who are poor. And the Prophet SAW Allah Allah is sending them he says
400 journalists will Allah Malaita seven if he laelia to add yet I had lay for who the progress on the licen and 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. He saw me laying down on my stomach for Ramadan easily. So he kicked me with his foot. The province I sent him 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, an albino Lima, 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 Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 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 an
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 salida syndrome.
And it is amazing to me, how many people
distance people from the religion because of this attitude.
They think that everywhere were the province on the line to send them was harsh, that they need to be harsh, or every time they read an effort from us a hobby
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 have to live near Ahmed and he said, I love you for the sake of Allah.
So if it no matter what the ALLAH and he said to him, I hate you for the sake of Allah.
The man says, I love you, but 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 singers.
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 Selim
was like? And then he said,
even Omar Abdullah and 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 the other I said, Okay. Sit down for a second.
Are you giving?
Do you command? Do you know who even Omar is? Even Ahmed is one of the five most prolific narrators of Hadith
you know, in the stages of FIQ of the development of this ummah, you have the time of the great companions of Walker and Rama and Rama Rathmann and added the times of expansion, right. And then when they died, who did the Ummah look to to teach them?
It was Abdullah ibn Abbas and Abdullah him the Ramadan I shut off Allah and Hana and SAP Matic, 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 even remembers 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's 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 to Mrs. Halaqa. 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 up
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 changed 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 Imam Abu Hanifa. May Allah have mercy on them all in filk.
Imam 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's like, I want you to go and ask this guy.
So 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 email, 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.
My 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 chef, 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 defeat 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 hasn't ended his day. And 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 pierces their heart, 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 Prophet sallallahu Sallam would not treat the ignorant like he 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 started urinating. He didn't know any better. The province symbolizes and I've dealt with him very commonly. And the province of ally, 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. And we'll give examples but one of the examples here is even in this the province of Allah Islam when 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 in before or some harm will come to him physically. So
about the harm will be bigger than the harm of him simply finishing in this moment, but the Prophet saw the light is send them that
corrected the man. 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 the man that the Messiah did or not for this another time, another companion
tells a beautiful story. More Alia, inhaca salami. He says he came to Medina feel bad. Yeah.
He gave him a dinner from the desert. And
he was praying behind the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he didn't know that speaking in the Salah had become prohibited.
And so while He was praying with Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, a person sneezed.
And so when that man's knees he's in Salah, and he said, Yeah, hammock hula.
And so then he says, for a minute, oh, maybe I was talking to 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 and so on. And so he says, Masha, no come from Verona LA, he says, Why are y'all looking at me? And so for ad him and I fired 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 was the one who is speaking? And so I said, Me on messenger of ALLAH. So he says, Mario, he says,
For the EBI, who owe me ma a to mu Cobla. Who, who accent I mean, as an Italian man, he says, I never saw
a teacher before him or after him, who is a better teacher than him.
He didn't hit me.
And he didn't insult me. But he simply said in the hardiest salata, Elias mahavihara che omenka meanness, in Omaha, this be with berocca to 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 it of the speech of people. It is simply for it to spear and take a beer and the recitation of the Quran. You Say Subhan Allah Subhana Allah Subhanallah Allah subhanaw taala belagavi Right, take be it or the recitation of the Quran. And so the Prophet sallallaahu Selim recognizing when a person was ignorant and teaching them and he would teach them with calmness, and the Prophet cellulitis and then would 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, if 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, do it. They will respond to you and say, in the Malama, 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.
that me reports that Abu Musa and ash it came to Abdullah Habemus route.
And I've lived through this also remember we talked about Isha Anderson 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, in the science of Quran, you've got three schools from the
schools over Sahaba
you have the school of obey niqab in Medina. So this is again the early Sahaba. They were very busy with the Empire itself establishing the religion. I will walk around the Allah and who with the with the Haruka Rida Rahmatullah hottub with Persia and a sham, and Iraq
and Egypt, you have a smile on their face and I've never flirted with the whole adage that's why you and they didn't live that long after the Prophet saw the light is and but when the Ummah became stable,
that is when the Sahaba were relegated to the to the role of teachers or the Sahaba of the Allied whom were teachers, I wouldn't say relegated it's not really respectful for them, but they were teachers, and people would come to them to learn to them 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 Maharaja of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam the,
the Syrah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and it's appropriate that it's in Medina.
And then you have the school of Abdullah having a bath in Mecca of the Leiden Abbas, the young cousin of the province of Allah they sent 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 ummah. And I would like to advise his school is in Mecca.
And a lot of their devices 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 minerals, which is in an Kufa in Iraq.
And the live news route school.
A lot of it
I would say there's a lot of fit in that school of Deaf see.
In any case, our blindness route is
in El Kufa.
And Abu Musa lashari, another great companion of the Prophet satellite is
calm comes to Abdullah.
And he says, I saw something in the masjid
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 abdulai Minister says to him, Well, what is it?
And he they go to the message, the message that will go forth.
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 Bill me say subhanallah 100 times and so they say Subhan Allah Subhan Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah
so they do that Henly Lumia say Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah 100 times like that, and I had Allah kept the Romea. Right.
So Abdullah him Mr. Who 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 two, either you are more guided, than the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, or you are opening up a door of misguidance.
And then they said, Yeah, by Abdul Rahman, Maulana Allah, Oh, I've 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 companions of the prophesy center? Or you're opening up a door from his guidance? Why does he say that? Because if it is something that
is 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 that the Companions didn't do. Either you are more guided than 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 intend good but don't reach it?
How many people intend good but they never reach it.
Follow will come in Meridian crazy. Let me use
in Rasulullah sallallaahu Salam and then he says the province of Allah is sending him he told us, how does the
trotty him, he says, I see are the prophets of Allah Allah is sending me 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 send him a he says, I saw the majority of these people on the day of no one mile haulage. On the day of the battle between the hydrogen I'd even be thought about the law. I know, he says I saw the majority of those guys who 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 cellulitis and them, or more precise, let us say that they didn't feel the need to restrict themselves to the guidance of Rasulullah sallallahu de Sena 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 you.
A lot of people are very willing to critic to criticize the FARC they are willing to correct the FARC but when the close and the beloved to them do anything wrong, they overlook it. They overlook it.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam famous incident, a wealthy woman
had committed theft.
But 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 sallallahu is
to go speak on on their behalf. They sent Osama bin Zayed Osama is the son of zayde even harder. Zaid was the adopted son of Rasulullah Salim so Zama is like the grandson of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. That's how much he is the beloved, the son of the Beloved of Rasulullah sallallahu escena remembers even had her for a long time. He was literally called they didn't implement the progress I sent them adopted him.
And it wasn't until
Allah Subhana Allah revealed the verses of Surah de la Raza, but the rumely abba, he called them but call them to their fathers. It is better that the name switched from a demon Muhammad Tuesday didn't have to his real father's name.
Oussama is comes Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, and then he comes to intercede on behalf of this woman.
And so the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam he asks husana He says, I testify if you had the mirror 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 Osama says a stuffily hours will 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 prophets of Allah they set it up then God Allah, he got up and he gave a hotspot amongst the people. And he says, uh, my bad for innama Allegan lithiumion publikum and home can either sadaqa sadaqa fee him a sheriff Turaco or either Surya Kofi Himalaya if accommodation had, were in New AlLadhina fcbd low enough Altima been to Mohamed Salah Calacatta to hear from Mr. camara Lazzara cut forgot I forgot to tell ya. So he says
that what destroyed in his whole play he says the thing that destroyed the people before you
is that when the sheriff, the honor the noble would commit a crime. They would be forgive
And 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 province of the lady who has an absence will lead the in fcbd by the one in whose hand is my sole low Fatima if Fatima the daughter of Muhammad stole I would cut off her
consistency incorrect correcting people's behavior. The province of Elijah said let me he says if and by the way, just a random Arabic tangent. There's different ways that you say if in Arabic there's low either and in in either and low.
So you could say
in serif font instead of at 40. Moving to Hamad either serif comfortable with to Hamlet low Celica Swati moving to Hamlet all of those work, but what's the difference? Low is used for something that is
No, is used for something that's that's not realistic. You It's not expected to happen. So the province the lights and it says low sell off at 40 Momentum Hamad? Why does he say low here because it's not I'm farmers 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.
And so the province of alladia syndrome 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 the noble, 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 ummah that is up to be destroyed by Allah subhanaw iodide.
And in another beautiful Hadith that's reported by even imagine the prophets Allah, Allah does send love he asked
a group of people who had 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 Hadron. 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 Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked him and he said, What was the most amazing thing that you saw in
at Habesha in Abyssinia. 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 oh trader, that on the Day of Judgment, when Allah sets up the currency 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 Allah said and then comments and he says sadaqat sadaqat. She has spoken the truth, she spoken the truth. And then he says, K for your practice Allahu Murten lie has liver if he mentioned it to him, okay for your head, this Allahu omen. law you have to be ready for your mission at 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 struggle? 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 their right from the strong? told them
to make the attack Go ahead.
Allahu Akbar i don't know
a long white road or long white
No when Mohan my daughter Rasool
Shadow one Mohan malodorous
Aiyana Sana Zanella
Hi Yan fella
hamdu lillah wa salatu 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 province of allies and in first the province ally send them in Bata, he tells Asia and he says if it were not for that your people are Hadith I didn't because your people are new Muslims. I would have placed the Kaaba back on the foundation of AAA.
So you know the kava 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 salaallah. Ibrahim alayhi salam 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 Kaaba 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.
It's 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 Kaaba, right and if you're in the Kaaba, 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 Kaaba 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, 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 GABA being like it is.
years later, decades later, I blindness Zubin after the death of it maybe thought even the death of an Hassan and then Hussein rather Lahoma Hmm. Ultramarine of the liveness. Zubin declares himself the Khalifa. And he receives bail in Makkah and Medina.
And he is being challenged by Abdul Malik ibn Marwan in a sham the Romanians
and so Abdullah Abdullah bin Zayed, the great companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and he's one of the young companions obviously because he lived a very long time afterwards, and he was the first companion to be born in Medina.
And after they had all migrated out to live in his bed his logic is that this Hamas the OMA has gotten used to it and if you were to change the GABA 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 a bribe.
I've done many keeping marijuana the Omega Khalifa kills I'm delighted his bed, his general hygiene use of crucifies Abdullah Xzibit.
And when I've done Malik even more, one seizes control over Makkah and Medina. He then returns the GABA back to how it used to be,
just because abdulai Museveni 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 Abbasids 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 its square square form, he says, shoot it, we now extend the Kaaba to the foundation of Ibrahim like it used to be.
An 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 guy, but 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 moon cup, a person can't correct the moon card by bringing forth a bigger moon card. 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 monk up. 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 boom.
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 monkey than before.
And Allah subhana data knows best. So that is making sure that the monkey that you do, does not bring forth a bigger monkey. You know, there's also a famous example of this Ibn Taymiyyah shuffle Islam.
He was walking by some of the top 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, certainly 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 moon card here is going to bring rise to a bigger moon.
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 prophets Allah licen him 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 forbearing 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 prophets of Elijah syndrome 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 pools him on it very harshly. And the companion says, I saw the trace of the cloak on the skin of the prophecy said 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, more Lehmann madula He laid here in the UK. He says, oh, Mohammed, give me from the wealth of Allah that's with you. So he's calling him by Mohammed, very disrespectful. Even Allah never calls him Slauson, I'm reading the Quran. Never.
It's always Yeah, you had an ad? Yeah, your lawsuit. He never directly calls him and he says, Yeah, Muhammad never in the Quran. Even though Allah says that about every other prophet. Yeah. Thomas Kuhn. ontological Jana, ya know? Yeah, Zakariya, yeah Risa all of this in the Moto figura Federica, la all of this is in the Quran. But Mohamed Salah isn't live never. And so this better one is coming to him and he's even as wise we call him Iago swim 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 is setting them all that did was made him smile. He simply smiled, fell taffeta, la he Rasul Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Cinnaminson Malika for Muhammad, Allahu Allah, the prophets of Allah do send them turn 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 transgressed. 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 haram was done 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 party scene. 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 Allah, 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 you 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 it 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 it dunya it's film where everybody gets upset and they're willing to build the to pound the drums of war. We ask Allah Subhana Allah for his guidance and his forgiveness. I told him I said to myself, Ally this Muhammad violence I just didn't see my concealer Zachman will have set up
