middle path radio illuminating the horizon.
Okay, so we're gonna start listening to today. Listen to the second part of the three part course, revolving around our mother, our child, your loved one very traumatic experience that she went through in her life and is, it's a very
deep story, very painful. Anyone who really listens to the story with their heart, and focuses on the terms that the story takes, and the painful steps that she has to go through,
to come to our home, what people are saying behind the back, will realize how great a test this must have been to her.
This, whatever happened to her, it really did rock her to the very cool. And that shows us that if a lung testing someone like Alisha, not just the mother of the video is about the what the most beloved person in the life of the process of why should we ever think we are going to have an easy life in our tests? Isn't that true? Like if the most beloved person to 47 is tested in such a in such a
horrific way? in the way that she was? Why should anyone think that you know what?
Why do I progress in my life? What am I doing wrong?
Because this is what Allah created the life to be a test for us who will have the Hulk and moto and higher
velocity created death and life in order to test you to give you them to love. And inshallah is not just a regular test. It's a tough test, in order to see which of you are best in conduct, which of you're going to react our faith? And what is amazing in Arusha, to test it to the core, she never once lost faith in Allah. She never wants to question Allah. She got angry at people who see that evens policy became frustrated with the process of loneliness.
But she had lost faith and good luck. What then can we say about those people who go through difficulties in their life, maybe they lost a loved one, or they witnessed abuse taking place. And later on in the life, they start to have a crisis of faith. Yeah, so as to blame a lot of what happened in their life and turn their back on a lot. Yes. What is that story? If only they knew that people are much more beloved than them? were tested more civilian. That is reassuring, wouldn't it? Okay, so where are we we are at the part where I show you how she comes back to the dealer now, along with the Muslims. And she falls ill she said she fell ill for almost a month. And it was a
it was a very serious illness. She was bed bound she had to have, she had to have a nurse look after sometimes it was a mother, sometimes it was someone else. And meanwhile, everyone else is gossiping and rubery about making allegations against her. And the other person who's the other person that they beat allegations against. So fun. Yeah, so far for the amount of time.
And that's worse. Because if you don't know what if you don't know that people are talking behind your back, it's more hurtful because people are dragging your name through the mud, and there's nothing you can do about it. Yeah. So the issue is compounded many ways for her.
One of the things I just want you to appreciate is how amazing and innocent as your of your mountain was, we all must know that any family house where he asked the processor,
who for the most of you what is most beloved?
One of them say? Who was the most beloved person to him? He said I should. Yeah. And then I would ask, and but for the men, like I mean for the men, not for the women.
And the person said
yes, I do have a father. even mentioning the man. He tied the reference to the man to
her father, non workers. Yeah. You don't want to cycle out of the house. I mentioned his story in the film. So Jesse, I said that our house was one of the last people to become Muslim. Before What?
Very good before the Congress about before coming to America with 10,000 strong army. Everyone is obviously terrified and that people have become Muslim. So many stories.
The people that held out to the very last point was out of the house. And then he became Muslim.
And when he became Muslim, the person said, he put out his hand for our to give him their and our loss. He refused to put up his hand. He said, just just want to know one thing. If I become Muslim, will I be forgiven? Everything I did in my past? And the person said, Oh, you know, the one who makes a Hitler for the sake of Allah, all these sins are wiped out. And the one who gives, you know, the one who
testifies and becomes a Muslim, all of his previous sins are forgiven. So you're going to get a double dose of forgiveness. Yeah. So he, he shook his hand and he became us. Now the thing is, put these two things together. The reason our Ross was asking, Who do you love the most is? Because what?
Why he asked you that question.
Exactly. If he thought it was him, but imagine he's the person before he tried to sabotage instance, he went to have a shot and tried to get,
you know, the degeneracy to give up the Muslim so they can become becoming persecuted again. He was an enemy of Islam, when he became Muslim or not even easily
possible point. He thought that the person loved him more than anyone else. And that shows us that the,
the way he treated people, is he made them feel special. Even if they made mistakes in the past karma isn't, he didn't treat him differently, because they said, Yeah, you're a Muslim. But you know, we are forced to bring you to the point where you say, Oh, he treats him as if he thought he was the most beloved person in the world. Amazing.
or she was supposed to be lovely person, the person also want you to reflect over this little incident that took place
in an authentic heading. And I shall hold the amount that she says once I was sitting there with the person and I was just admiring him, just looking at an environment, my husband processor. And then she said to herself, Dr.
Irwin, can you make golf for me osco loving, I mean, go out for me. And the person immediately raised his hands, he said, Oh, Allah, forgive Anisha for every prompt, she's done in the past, every wrong she may do in the future, and everything she did publicly and in secret.
So the mother when she heard that, she just started laughing at the fed into the lap of the processor.
And she said, Do you mean block me my name? And the first thing he said, Do You Think and Do you find that strange and I'll be gone for you. But do you think I wouldn't do that? You know what she said? She's, she said, I thought I wasn't worthy of being made to offer by you. And then he said, we'll lie. I swear I'm not I make the off of my oma in every salon just like I made to offer you right now. So Pamela
and just from that one incident, you gauge the beautiful happy marriage of our son had with his wife, isn't it? So it is this lady who was placed in this tournament? Okay, so when she came back to Medina, she says, For the first decade machine according to Cheryl, she says when I came back to Medina, I felt ill for nearly a month whatnot so you feel a football It was hard to differentiate not she said I realized afterwards that all this time, people were
people were gossiping about the allegation made by the people if
whenever a shower will be shaved in Medellin and she said all the while I had absolutely no idea.
Then she said
a lot of elderly come to our meat machine a shaky then she said however, there was one thing even though I didn't know what was going on, there was one thing I noticed that the same amount of loot, love and care, that would usually come from the person. It wasn't coming now.
Yeah, when I would usually get the old person would show a lot of affection, a lot of love. But this time around, I noticed something was up another issue and how does it that?
I she said you know when he would come to visit me the way he would speak
I realized that you know what? Something's not right. Now the thing is, you may think to yourself, it was a setup is visiting over a period of a month. People are saying all these indecent things about him about his wife, okay, and he's going to visit his wife. Why is it the case that the person does speak to
Say, do you know what's going on? People are saying such ridiculous things. Have you any idea what's going on? Why don't we just go visitor and then go back home? Why don't we make an issue and when you speak to him about it, what do you think?
If someone told you such a devastating piece of news whilst you're bed bound, most likely you may fall even worse. Yeah, they may or may topple yoga. And so it's such a huge thing. So that's one possibility. And we'll see later on that, in fact, it seems like this is the reason why the President didn't actually confronted it and he was waiting for her to get better. So she says that what used to happen is in the marina from Wiley, also the money some awesome when the President used to come and visit me, for you send me more food, my opponent, k 13, fatty calm, he will come in. And he would say sit down while you come to be. And then he will turn to my mother. Oh, my care I'm safe
gave her tiku How is this? How is this young one? Yeah, okay. FICO is like saying, how is this lovely young lady doing with affection? So instead of talking to her,
instead, ask someone else about it.
So he doesn't want to have a conversation?
Why do you think that would be the case?
In order to help you think about how much he loved? how close they were together? Now, when you're really close to someone?
Can they tell what's going on in your mind just by looking at it?
They can find it. They can tell? Especially Why is why is no their husband's Better Than Anyone Else, isn't it? You come home from work one day and you're in a bit grumpy mood. Here you got to say a word. Because why would you be What do you mean? Well, nothing happens. Try and play cool. Because I know something happened. Anything out you know?
And then just eat your dinner. Mind your own business. You can say anything. She says you could talk to me, you know, it's fine. You said Well, there's nothing to talk about.
As he said, it's your boss, isn't it?
And then she says, You know what? Don't you
know Yeah, I'll tell you I'll tell you what to do. Don't be upset with me as well. So when you're very close to someone, just from a few glances and a few exchanges, you can tell that something's not right. So perhaps the reason was keeping it short. In order that this wouldn't come to light you know, because you may realize that look, you know what, something's up let's talk about things. And I'm most proud of knows this then she says that he will turn going further and he can at the end Budi is now used to reading along me, I see very suspicious about what's going on. What we have alleged America and then she says this carried on and to I got better, and I got my strength
together. Then what happened is she left her house. She was in the house for nearly a month. Now she says I've got enough energy and I left the house to go and relieve myself. Back then they weren't toilets when inside the houses in fact, we were outside in remote place. So she went out she carried herself in a remote place with another lady whose name is own Mr. The mother of Mr. This is the next character in the story. Okay, and she was looking after them. So when they go they're coming back now. And what happened is is that mister she trips up for minister she trips up and when she trips up she says something which shocks Alisha. Listen to what she says he says
to burn through analog means she says and then when we will come back to the house called for rather than being shut Nina we will we have done doing what we need to do that I thought only this di fee fee bill to her for terrorism Stein. She says she tripped up over a dress. And once you tripped up your she said she said there is a mistake which means may mistake because in Hannah said it can also be made his face he toppled into the ground. Now who is Mr.
Right? So why is he cursing and some folks in the house that this happened three times? All the way back? Every time this happened? She would say Cosby my son. Firstly my son. And then she said to her What are you saying she said
the police will never base on our house. What a terrible thing you said
at this at the Sabina I want to learn shining analogies. Are you consulting a man who participated in beverage? Now what is amazing is she never said Are you insulting us
she said, Are you insulting a man who participate in bother?
You know why? Because back then they value people based on their sacrifice to Islam.
He said before he is your son. He's a Matthew 14. But he's from the bird's eye view. The Elite Muslim is not a regular person. Yeah, even Hasn't he made a comment here? He said, The reason why she kept saying it couldn't be my son is she was trying to make a point to Isaiah. What was the point that she's trying to make? That Don't you know that mister, my son has been saying those very indecent things about you.
But she wasn't getting it. So when she asked when I she said, Why are you cursing young son for a while because we want to police it better? Then Minister? She told her.
Don't you know what the he's been saying?
Are you that? Innocent? and naive? You don't know what he said? He, as well as some other people have been going to the house of did nobody probably know they. This is the hypocrite who made other appliances. They were going to his house. And they would make allegations against you. And software. Yeah. Now
you have to imagine like, what was her reaction in that time?
First of all, she's already said something was wrong from the processor. And now she's heard that there is something called a slander that's been made against her.
Obviously, she's gonna put two and two together.
So you can think to yourself, What? People have been saying that about me, then she's gonna stop her mind is gonna start racing through the Oh, is that one for cinema has been acting a bit off with me. Yeah. So this is the moment where she's painfully discovering that something was said about her. And that slowness slowly beginning to dawn on her. So she says towards me, Hunter, that lane? He said, Thank you, Hunter. Don't you know what was going on? I noticed Mary, Martha. I don't know. Have you heard what he said? And then I shouldn't ask about any The only if she told me everything about the people if if? And then says to Maldonado. She said when she told me, I became even more ill than I
was before. Is this what we were saying about the processor? That if you told her? What spoke to her about it, she would become even more bizarre became even more than I was before. Then they go back home. And you could just imagine like, how she wants to feel in that moment. Confused? lonely, okay.
is indescribable. And then she said that the process of him he came to visit me.
And when he came in, again, he said Salaam Alaikum. And then he turned and said, Katie, come How is this young lady doing? And then as she spoke up, she says,
I want your permission to go and stay with my mother and father.
You know, I want to go from that house. Now. there's anything else?
And so the process of him, he gives her permission. Okay, he gives her permission as a side point. Okay?
Why does she want to go to Home dads are so many reasons, obviously. Okay, she's in a very difficult time. Right now she wants to be with a mother and father. But also she said he's going to stay cleaner and have a meal together. Even she says I wanted to hear it from them both themselves. I wanted to make sure from both of them, that this is really true. Now shows you that she thought it was unbelievable. People wouldn't have say some sort of thing to me. It can't be real. So she wanted to find out herself. So she sought permission from the processor. Now here is a lesson to them.
The fact that she sought permission from the processor, my husband to leave the house to leave his house to go to her parents house, it shows us that wives, if they're going to leave the husband's home, they should do so with additional damage. And now obviously, if there is already an agreement, like you, you know, your wife is going to leave the house every day to pick up the children or to go to work. That's fine. But if it's something out of the known,
what should the wife do? She should ask permission from her husband's. Now you think about it. I wish I had every right to get up and leave there and then isn't it? Because this is such an emotional time for her traumatic time with those times you don't think clearly. Those kinds of technicalities start to go out the window quickly. But she said no. If I'm going to go from parent cells, I'm going to ask you permission first. It was that important thing. So she says
I the way I came to my parents house, according to the omiya sakala she says I came home the first person I went to is my mother. I said your mother, your mother
Yo Mata is a more emotional website. Mother. She said to me, she said Your mother is like saying, Oh, mother and running into her arms. And then she says, Marissa to have the fullness. One of the people been saying, call it a year. She said, Oh, my sweet chart halloweeny I think she said, Take it easy. Calm down, calm down is a beautiful scene of a mother, competent daughter in this very traumatic time. And listen to what she says. He says laquanda mcconachie, want to talk to you about the attorney, the attorney
bar in La castagna. She says, this kind of coded, she says, is always the case, when there is a fine young lady who is loved daily by husbands husband, and he has co wives that she becomes a subject of some kind of harm. A difficulty.
Yeah. Why is she saying?
What are you saying when she's when she's saying that? You know what?
You know, he has other wives. And you know how much he loves you?
What do you think you got, you know, you're not going to go through some kind of difficulties and problems and I'm gonna try and maybe try to harm you.
What, what is she doing here?
What's the wisdom behind the words?
yes, she's competent her, but how is she competent? How would this comfort her? Yeah, maybe not.
bound to happen.
Okay, this is bound to happen because
that element of jealousy, this element of jealousy, yes. But what she said right in the beginning, she said, How often is it the case that a woman who is beautiful, a lot of my husband is harmed by his co wives? She's saying, look, this happened to me when before?
Yeah, it's happened to me. Many women just like you went through something similar. Yeah, she's comforting her by reassuring her that look, these things happen in life. Yeah, you can see the wisdom of the mother.
But also, also my brothers and sisters. She didn't automatically for she didn't straightaway say it's all one big line. Don't believe anything.
That she just said either.
Nothing is Paula for Arusha, it must have been a bit difficult to make those kind of words from her. She may be expecting her mother say, Don't listen to what anyone has to say. Okay, it's all one big fat lie. And you know, it's not true. It wasn't true. Don't worry about anyone didn't say like that. She knows that this is a dilemma. Whichever way you look at it. So the best thing is just to be there for one shot.
To hold a close and to tell everything's gonna be okay. It's fine. Don't worry about it. That what is actually the same response? She says, according to Suhana law. So Pamela, this is the first words that come out of her mouth. She doesn't say all those down co wives. It was good enough for me. And dad from day one. Which one was it? No. She just say so Pamela, I seriously, I'm in shock.
What the heck does a nurse be harder? Are people really saying this? See, she knows that her mother is not actually making an allegation against the other wives. She's just comforting her. So she doesn't say otherwise. I'm saying this because people really saying this mother. Oh, that's for the key to till can lead us back to the young couple need them actually say so that night, I cried my eyes out. And my tastes did not stop coming until the morning time. Whether he will be no mean half the us back to that key. And she says that might is they just wouldn't stop. And I didn't get a moment sleep the night that I found out this was happening. So come. It was earth shattering for
Yeah, in another iteration. The first thing she said to her mother artists, Pamela is does my father know about this? You know, it's a matter of dignity, isn't it? People can say what they want. And if my father doesn't get to hear it, and have the least that much to say. So she said dude, does my father know? She says yes. The English he asked who knows next?
She said doesn't process unknown?
And she said Yes, she does. Yes, he does. And that was it. Then the tears started coming up. And then she started to cry.
They also problema there's a few there's a few lessons that I want to share with you. First of all, I want you to imagine Okay, just pause the story.
How is it that the gossip managed to spread so much? The city of Medina? This is the most religious Society of all time, isn't it? You're never going to get more religious community than the people of Medina and the time for us to live. How is it then that this launder that was made against I shall not be can to spread amongst that community?
Like if you were there at that time?
How would How would you have reacted?
Yep. Is that it was so unbelievable.
Okay, so audibly without discussing themselves.
Okay, it doesn't.
It doesn't seem that that can be the whole answer, though.
Did you get the point though? Like, how is it that it wasn't a question from the beginning? Like how did it end up spreading so much and for over a month?
And all of this heartache? This is just closing the store? We're not continuing right now. Yeah. I think just shows how, like the hypocrites infiltrated deep, okay, into the
very good, it shows the influence and the
the reach that the hypocrites actually had with the Muslim community, and that they could cause such as in the heart of the city.
This is good. However, the hypocrites, we're not the only ones to blame, though. Obviously, the people that are passing around the goseck. Now are the regular season. Yes.
So if we look at an analogy of the Quran, and the story, which is told in great detail at that time, it's meant to be an example for future leaders, that if you're going up into that certain believers that it could happen to us in the same way. If that was the most religious community of all time. Yeah. Then who are we? And of course, it's going to happen to us that we should learn their lessons. Totally. I agree. I mean, if it could happen to them,
with all of their piety and taqwa, you know, and in the, in the presence of the process of a bit, of course, you know, why should we think we're going to be left without subliminal Trump? But why I want to know is, how did it happen in the first How did you begin to spend in that time yesterday, but could it be once as locked the cobwebs and the fact that a lot of people
so how does she do that?
Okay, maybe it was out of a sense of love for the process certain that how is it that you know, something bad is gonna happen? This is talking about
is made more innocent than that?
is a bit weird, isn't that? Yes, at the back.
There wasn't anything
to say slaughtering and talking like this is wrong. So it's kind of okay.
We don't realize we're doing something wrong.
Just passed us trustworthy. Okay, very good. So maybe it's the fact that there's no clear cut guidance on this issue that if someone brings an allegation, what should your reaction be? But shouldn't they know?
Shouldn't they know?
Is he part of what you said is correct. The thing is, when it comes to sharing, an allegation is different to make an allegation isn't the one who makes an allegation, either is true with what you're saying? Well, he's lying.
He's nine. But as for this, oh, do you know what they're saying?
Do you know what the saying about him?
I've heard already that they saying this about such and such person. That's different. We're talking about that individual, those individuals. See when you're in that position of being told about an allegation.
It's very easy to think it's a trivial matter to get involved.
Isn't it? Most people think is it's nothing is banter. This is part of banter. isn't someone saying that? You say? I just
made it up? I heard it already.
I didn't do anything wrong. Yeah. But the thing is here, this is where the Quran highlights one issue. Now, when it comes to the chastity of fellow believers, there is a very high standard we have to follow. And that is if an allegation is made and you hear about it, you should not get involved.
Usually, we're talking about if you're an email or a judge, I'm talking about if you're a victim of a crime, we're just talking about a regular person hears about navigation. What should your reaction be? The first thing is recognize that this is no light matter in some sort of news.
Regarding the Allah says, what does the Buddha who have you know? Well, who are the ones that you all thought it is such a light issue, trivial matter, whatever in the mind of him, but in the sight of Allah, it was something very great. It was something very great insight to a lot. And this is one problem that people either hide behind
certain excuses, like hashtag, just saying, hashtag
in front of in front of a lot, that doesn't work.
In front of Allah, just saying hashtag doesn't doesn't work? Because it is about allegation, giving me the chance to have somebody else. You can't even say that much. Yeah, you can't hit the share button.
But we did want to share that concern. Would you say that people need to know about these things? You know, I think I will duty part of the Facebook community to share this knowledge with everyone.
And then the thing is, people will retrospectively start to justify themselves, isn't it? such as well, the thing is, bro, you know,
people need to know about these things. Because if they did come across this person, they will know how to deal with this. Okay, did you think of that before you shared it? Or after you shared it? Seriously,
isn't it this is being disingenuous.
This is the first thing, this is not a light matter. It is a very heavy matter. The second thing is what should your immediate reaction be? If you are sitting with a group of brothers, okay? Having a bunch, okay. And someone says, you know, after the college man says you can go through that history, I think something's going on. What would your reaction be? More or less this think about what the reaction usually is.
The reaction usually has been put down the burgers. Seriously. Good hair this man. Tell us more? Doesn't it? That's one reaction.
One is think about natural reaction. someone's not that evil.
They're not very pious, but they don't actually
come up with excuses. I can make excuses for him. Okay, somebody said look, make make excuses. Maybe the actual course went together
Yes. I think I explained the right attitude. Yes.
So comes and spreads some,
some news, what you should do is basically you should
verify, verify that. Okay, so the brunt of hate quotes there, really? So
if a facet, an immoral person comes to you with a piece of news, what should you rationally into verify it's so common except when you're saying until I go ahead and verify it with third party, for example, maybe on the internet or something else? Are you willing to accept it? The problem is that it is not speaking about an allegation to do with the chest view and believe it is speaking about a piece of news that may have an impact on the Muslim community. Yeah, different scenario. We're talking about allegation regarding the chest or some so to carry out what kind of reaction do brothers usually have? or sisters? In fact, having that scenario is
excellent. Excellent. Very good. So the brother said, Well, listen, I am a pharmaceutical and I'll say is that why isn't it the case that when you heard it, you didn't say firstly? sapan subhanak. So how am I gonna? We have no business, talking about such a thing. This is all a big fat line.
Now on that scenario, with the brothers having lunches, and somebody raises that allegation, who from amongst those people would usually make such a stunt? How often would it be the case that someone makes a stand like that? Very rare, isn't it? In fact, if you did, if you said Oh, you can't be saying that?
Because that's that's not right. In fact, I think your name
if you don't have proof for that, I think I think that's a lie. If you're ever
become the object of the insults. People will not only that,
good jokes and that is the most serious Yeah, Hello, police.
Isn't it? But somehow this is what the Quran asks us to do. Allah asks us, in fact demands it from us, that if anyone made an allegation of about the chastity of
Another believing man or woman, your reaction should be. It's not true, I don't believe and you shouldn't be talking about
supanova How far are we from that?
The kind of gossip culture that we live in? It thrives on this, isn't it? If people decide to live by the hour to kill most of this TV programs out there reality TV shows, and so much of social media stores online, all those magazines, you know, those women magazines, they're all about gossip, isn't it? The front page is always about gossip about other people
will say, No, we're gonna live by this person who put on one of those things which shut down
their favorite soap, isn't it?
anymore? I suppose that makes you think. Yeah. So this is the second thing. Watching directly. This is what your reaction should be. And again, I reiterate, this is not about if you're the man or your judge, is different than if you were just a regular citizen. Now, the third thing is, if you think that somebody is having an indecent relationship, yeah. What should you do?
What should you do?
What should you do? If you think that someone, you know, two Muslims are having an affair, economic alarm Allah, and you honor us and never make us the subject of such a trauma in our life, our family, I mean, but if you felt that, you know what, someone is having an affair.
And, you know, just, just recently, someone came to university and said, You know, I think my neighbor
the wife is having an affair. What should I do?
So the happens, unfortunately, yeah, unfortunately, happen. So what should you do in that situation?
What do you think gets to speak?
To speak to them? Okay, so you could go to her? Okay. And you could say, look,
with all due respect, okay. I'm concerned. As a concerned Muslim. You know, I would like to give you some advice about something. Okay. Anything else you could do? Yeah. credible evidence first.
Okay, so you got a fairly good idea. You got a fairly good idea. I mean, you don't have hard evidence, you know, no investigator or anything like that. But you I feel like basically. So besides advice and anything else you could do?
Okay, you make off of them. Very good. That would be something of concern to them. Yes. Somebody else depends on that. In some cases, I will act on the Hadith that says,
And you give special advice or in a one to one advice. Okay. Okay. Very good. So you said you would have explosive,
explosive, but at the same time, you would try to give advice, very reasonable about this thing. Anything else? Yes.
Okay, very good. So maybe there's some issues here. It's not just about temptation and lust and desires about the person is, has a very poor relationship with Allah doesn't pray, do good deeds, and that's affecting is the man and make him vulnerable? What if you're living in a Islamic country where they are using Muslim authority?
What should you do?
Would you tell the authorities
think about this? Somebody is having an affair. There's another party who is being wronged in the husband's for example, why was the other way around? The wife has grown
to love if you are going to tell the authorities
Okay, we see when you seem keen to do that
won't be the procedure useful? Would it be simple phone call?
Now, before you mentioned this whole thing about Islamic state authority,
tell him often
of trust as opposed to going to the government.
country, the amounts maybe?
Yes, so the power of the government arm.
So if you were to do that, it would be that would be the equivalent to the government. And what what what procedure would you follow? Would it be just a simple phone call email, Whatsapp message, what you said earlier might be appropriate because you could tell the other half of the person who's been wronged first before you go to the authorities to surface the one who's been wronged and their loved ones. It's a wife who's having an affair.
you're gonna tell them as civil authorities, how would you tell the
provide reliable witnesses, how many
See here, if you weren't going to tell the person
in which case you are actually making an allegation, by the way, that this person is having an affair. The only way you will be able to do that is if you brought with you four witnesses.
four witnesses, I want to go into details of what the people must have witnessed in order to make that allegation as very deep. Yeah. And here's the final point I want to make on it. You should really listen to this.
Listen to this.
This should we often say that Islam is a comprehensive religions. So we say we say Islam is a comprehensive religion, but I want you to appreciate on the matter of sexual ethics, how sophisticated the Sharia law truly is.
Now, these five things, yeah, but in my mind, that form the process through which the sherea A tries to nurture decency, and modesty in the hearts of its follows five things. First of all, the Sharia a seeks to impart great values in the in the Muslim community. values like taqwa being God conscious, being cautious about
values like bearish, the idea of being compassionate to one of our values, like just not giving people the benefit of the doubt, and values like purity. Be a pure person, don't be an indecent person. So the first process is great values. The second is, it gives those to safeguard those values that people hold. For example, it tells people be pure, be innocent, be modest, and then it gives the laws regarding a job and lowering the gaze turnout, those are those times. Why is the hedge are being told Mondays women in order to preserve that value of purity, purity.
then number three, it places strict punishments for people people that flout those rules. If you were to be caught up in Xena, okay, and Linda, if you're on my 100 lashes. And if you're married, that's the end of it. stoned to death strict laws. So What number are we on now?
This this is the lowest so we had the values, then we got the lowest we got the patients. Number four, is it places such a high threshold of evidence in order for someone to be punished?
Yeah, so if you were
stopped for committing Zina, and you have found out the only way you will be convicted is if you confess all there were four witnesses on the scene.
And number five, it opens wide the door of tober.
It tells people keep on making Tolbert on alone forgive whatever you do in your life. You don't need to worry about it after you turn away from the sim and make Toba Toma. Now when most pious things come together they become very powerful force, very sophisticated force. And what is amazing is that all five
parts of them are mentioned inside sort of the node which is dealing with the incident of
values. Allah says Allah.
Allah is the light of the skies and the earth. And the law compares the light his boys guidance with the likeness of that niche, which has a lamp, which has a blazing flame in science. And the idea is that the house will believe people are supposed to be pure, just like the oil inside that burner is pure, pure people. Be decent people. That's the value
That was number two.
The loose is no surprise. So the rule is says only
show the believing men, lower your gaze or control your sight. And the same goes for women.
Allah says women cover up your beauties with the hitter.
Alicia was mandated and inside saw to know number three, the punishments. Allah says a person who is caught for doing Zina is unpaid, federal.
Last one 100 times, that's a lot right. So that brings us on to number
that was the punishment number three. As for that higher threshold, Allah series, loner gentleman,
where if they came with slander, why did they not bring our biases yoga for us is
such a high threshold allow you to be insensitive, and then inside so to go after the role of hijab has given us a chance to eat a lot to be
turned back to allowing tober if you are true buddies, some power
And that is incredible. And it shows us as a power law, that if we truly live by the teachings of Islam, we will have the power not just to reform ourselves, but to reform our families and society. Because who else out there has a piece of knowledge and guidance that can rival Islam. The wonders, rather people are in need to be smart. And we are in need of nothing other than Islam.
Okay, that brings us to the end of for those of us who lost the habit.
Any questions anyone to ask anything? Yes.
is the moment to share with us some historical facts that is very rarely the case that someone is ever being punished and convicted for Zina based on evidence or for witnesses. It's always it has happened it's always been the case that someone has confessed themselves because they don't want to meet along with
it rather suffer the head and meet a law without that
Okay, thanks Michelle as we see your
middle path radio illuminating the horizon.
