Allah Subhana with Allah is Allah did lots of kind of Allah is the just, and also La Silla La Jolla and some of them were through the justice of Allah Subhana Allah and this justice in the action of the Sahaba transformed
itself into a way of life.

the custodian of the Justice be those who work with the justice of Allah subhanho wa Taala, who had
witnesses for Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Even if it's against your own selves, do the Justice save a life thing, even if it's against your own self,
or against your own parents
or against your own kin, your own family, your own kinship,
our inside you deliver, that is really it's rich or poor. Then Allah Subhana Allah knows best. This is also a loss of Hannah with Allah, and you have not You shall not follow your own desires and your own voice, and you have to follow the justice and that you
and Allah Subhana Allah
knows his prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam an example of justice, an example of going on the life path, saying the right thing, even if it's against those who are most beloved to him. So Allah Allah he was selling and he transmitted this dalla to all his Sahaba and he said to us in the Hadith, combine,
Odin and ye at all of you are custodian all of you are responsible all of you are in charge, and all of you are in charge of the people who are under your Lost Planet Allah gives you custody off
and in that in the Hadith in Sahih, muslim for Allah, Allah Allah Allah wa sallam said, in

Muslim, that those who are just those who work with the justice of Allah Subhana, WA tada and Athena and Allah, Allah menaggio I mean you, they will be on the day of judgment on pillars of light.
On the right hand of a loss of Hannah with Allah, Allah Nina watchmen, and both hands of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, our rights, and Laguna de Luna, the opium verse are just in the ruling, and the judgment was the enemy him and they are just among their own family. There are people who are not just with their own children, they favor some of their children over the other they favor the boys over the girl sometimes
you have to be just in your own family, one, and everything they are trusted with everything they are in charge off. So anybody who is a boss of the work, they have to work with the justice and that in reality God everybody who has somebody under them, they have to be just in that and everyone has some muscle allottee that could be combined, all of you are in charge. And all of you are responsible for those who are under you.
And Allah subhanaw taala said and so forth. And

And we will go over the Sahaba we go over a few examples how the Sahaba were mindful, were responsible and they were just and how they follow these
recommendations from Allah subhana wa at that
one of the Hadees presidents narrative on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and it's narrated in Sahih Bukhari just to see the justice of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Who was the teacher? Who is the role model for the Sahaba? How do they learn the justice? How did they learn how to deal with people they learned from the example of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And on this heavy field, Buhari notes on the authority of Ottawa, and kakatiya, the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was lucky that a woman's tall and the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
como her and her people went to who to send that these eight, they went to Sam, why seven? Because the salmon was the beloved Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, son of the beloved zahavi of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was his Titan was and
he was the beloved son of the Beloved, he was the son of God. So the moon, and that that he is so close to the heart of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and if the lake was Santa intercede on behalf of that women when they have the best chance, so they went to the seminar seminar was young with Sam, I didn't have much experience and semo was a teenager at that time. So he would be it'd be easy to talk to him to to intercede with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
upon mahalo cemetery, ah, Fiona, and then he said phenom Mecca lemahieu, Sam if he has So Sam, I went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he asked some forgiveness, some leniency towards that woman because what is her punishment is to have her hand cut because she stole and she was not in need, and etc. She She met all the requirements in Sharia, for that utmost punishment for the for the for the stealing.
So, Santa came and talked to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and asked for leniency that Elena was Rasulullah and the color of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam change
the color color sallallahu wasallam African lumen if he had been in hijo de la heeta Allah Are you interceding and a ruling of from a loss of Hanna with Allah This is head this is like a line that Allah subhanaw taala drew this is a ruling from Allah subhanho wa Taala was Sarika Sarika idea Houma la Santa is this those who steal female male or female, they cut their hand that is a ruling and of course there are conditions for that it's not an automatic hand cutting like many of the
people that tried to attack a slam would would want to portray in one movie they portrayed a man who stole a loaf of bread and he was dying of hunger. And then he was taken to the halifa and his hand was cut and you know, that's false, because the Omar will be alone when there was a famine he stopped working with this when people had to not encouraging people to still there was still a punishment, but it didn't reach that. But we digress a little bit anyway. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam for the summer. Are you talking to me? Are you interceding and head and a punishment that Allah Subhana Allah drew and the same elegantly said stuff for the Rasul Allah or ask Allah to
forgive me at all profitable for him, he realized the mistake that he was doing, and then everyone narrates Philomena kandalaksha comma Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stand up and he started making hookah for all the Sahaba dafna Allah wa he prays a lot kind of with the Alabama who I know from my heart and my dad for him Mama halycon nurse and Nahum. Can is Sara Kathy he was shot in Kotaku, what he does sort of copy him by his camera and he says the nation's before you perish, they deviated from the right path, because when an honorable man and honorable person would steal, they would leave them alone, they would come up with excuses
to lead that honorable person that they are room for us from the tribe of Muslim Muslim, the most honorable people have said Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam on one of the elite one of the honorable makes a mistake. The people will try to make excuses for it
by the head but if somebody who's weakened from it from the not from the loop of the society will also be in this society, then they will apply the most severe punishment upon them. What are the next 200 MVA? Oh Allah Subhana Allah who's the soul of Mohammed is in his hands on the line he will send them
a letter. These are Mohammed bin Soraka Nakata, a foreigner and she is all exonerated of anything like that, but he has given
Atmos example, a father and a daughter of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would see then Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with cut her hand from Mr. Ross, who will lie
to her, then he ordered for it and her hand was cut, and then she narrates the heavy metal back to her, that is alika with zero debt, what kind of debt to Rasulullah
rasulillah she repented, and she would keep her relation with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and she got married, and she would come to the house of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would ask her who was on the line and send them for things that were a fear and he would respond to some of them.
That was the example of the justice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And this transmitted into the Sahaba.
He thought that the justice in Islam immediately the name of our motto, has to come up top was one of the people that had no fear of anyone other than China with ally applying justice. And the stories are many the stories of Mr. Bob were so many scenarios that some of them were studying the life of America probably alone, but we take this opportunity and now it's some of them to see how how truthful America
was in applying the justice of Allah Subhana Allah and His Prophet
on the authority of ns or the Allahu, and that and then an Egyptian man came to Mr. Adnan chapati at the time of his class, and he said,
when it comes cinema, yeah, I mean, I even didn't carry becoming a woman, oh,
I take refuge in You from transgression. I've been wronged. And many narrations say that this man was not even a Muslim. He was equipped that he was an Egyptian, a Christian Egyptian that came to the Prophet.
And he said, I take refuge in You. I'm asking you a protection against the transgression that happened to me and almost said, Pamela has and you will take your refuge, you will take the protection. And then he said he started sending the story. He said back to my house. I had a horse race with the son of honorable house allows was the governor of Egypt. He was the man that conquered Egypt probably a long time. And he was the ultimate ruler of that country at that time.
And this son was not Abdullah Rama. This is one of our kids that I belong to so pious is one of the scholars. This did not happen to I believe it's another son of
naka de la Mama. And he said, I had a horse race with the son, the founder of the last doctor, so I beat him. I voice the valet a burrito, need the salt and he started whipping me with his with his
I started beating the lashes.
Academy. I am the son of the of the honorable people. How good are you? They're beating me in the race.
So mocha Fabiola
wrote a letter to us and said, come and bring your son Yeah. To do Nakula didn't tell him anything. Just come here to Medina and bring your son with you.
When and I'm moving to LA Spain and with his son with them. And Omar said rajala 123. What is the Egyptian and the Egyptian man came
and verified this story. And it was true. So I'm
told the gyptian man who does salt take it for granted. And with him with the son of the governor of Egypt.
The salt and the division and started whipping the son of amrev. The last one or
the one the son of not the most honorable the most, most people, the worst of people, the one that transgressed upon you. And then Ms. Roby Allahu anhu is now in the Hadeeth. He said
he started beating him.
He started beating him and the Sahaba locked him to be for him to be decent to learn to listen. And then he said
at that time, Amina and you're fine. He kept beating him until we all wish that he stopped. He did he beat him real good to the son of Mr. Abner laughs and then
to talk to the
Egyptian again, and he said, I'll sell it. I'ma start with the bald head of armor blocks. He said, Now you beat the governor of Egypt, the conquered country.
The Muslims, we have not an occupying force of Egypt. This is the justice of Islam brothers. And you compare this to what's happening in the world today. This is the man who was abused by the son of the governor of Egypt, and
punished the son of the governor of Egypt. And he gives the whip to the name that has been wronged. And he said, Now, it's the turn of the governor himself, is the man in charge. He said, start with his bald head. And with him.
This is the justice of Islam brothers and sisters. This is why Islam when there and stayed there, it stayed in the hearts it did not stay by force, like some people want want to believe.
and then the Egyptian man said,
Give me little hits me, I have no problem with
this document. I took my I took my wife and his son, I'm done. And then Omar said his famous quotation to Imran Alas, and he said, Yeah, I'm moving to a better nurse
from Omaha to Maharashtra
to nurse from Omaha, Toma Harada. When did you make slaves are three people that were born free to their mothers, enslave people that were born free to their mothers. And the law said
to me, I did not notice what happened and this man didn't come to me, he came directly to you. That was the apology of the last. This is how Islam made justice brothers and sisters. This is when it's the mercy of Islam going to a country. It's truly to bring freedom to that country, through them to the hearts of people, to bring the lights to the hearts of people, not to bring the whip to the hearts of people that will present the hand of the conquered people to take the rights from those who come from them. They hide rights from the people that conquered them.
another man's story of the justice of America
is one of his children have camels, that some sheep and camels cattle so he can make a living. That's how people around the Dida made a living they would buy cattle, they would raise it and they would say what that cattle will produce. And then they will sell the cattle if they can't. So the son the founder
had a cattle and he started mining it he started taking care of it around Medina and then came to the market of Medina to sell his cattle. Very lawful transaction in many people's opinion. So I looked at the market, he was in the marketplace. And he looked at all the cattle and he saw that this is the best cattle in the in the in the crowd. This is the best goods out there. The best capital is the one with his son. And he came to him and he said that come here. What is that? He said well, why this is all good. This is all I bought it with my own money. I didn't take anything from the treasury of Islam. I didn't take anything from both men. And I minded it myself and I sent
my ship about five Medina to take care of it. And here I am to sell it. He said so. So this is what you did. He said you took your sheet and you took your camels outside Medina and the people will say, let the sheep of the son of me eat first. Lets the camels have the fun of
First, let the people will take care of you because you are my son and look at your cattle now it's better than everybody else. It's better than everybody else's cattle said take this cattle sell it. Take your capital that your money your initial your initial amount that you put in and put all the rest in the treasury of the Muslims. This cattle was raised because was raised good. Not because you took care of it because you are my son. And people honor that. And this is how long
that was the justice of America pop that was
that was so worried that he will not even use his position to
To for the sheep to eat grass more than the sheep of other people, mind you stealing from the Treasury, mind you taking the resources of the people and living in poverty, living without medicine and without food.
Though as a matter of law, this was the justice of the Sahaba Well, one, image nine
we can go on and on. So Pamela, but I promised you to have this presentation for sure Hamza Yusuf, whatever he will say hamdulillah is much better than anything that I would say. And I will never get to the level of a scholar like him, Sal will stop here in sha Allah, when make draw, to lift the calamity and our brothers and sisters who are under calamity wherever they are, and there's so many of them everywhere. We ask them lots of Hannah with Allah to treat us with His mercy, and not with His justice, who has a loss of Hannah with Allah, to let justice to come through to our brothers and sisters everywhere, wherever they are, and they are so many places that justice has been lifted,
abou movable metal yo belt, piano, transgression, lack of justice is darkness on the Day of Judgment is total darkness. And the Muslim world today is living in darkness brothers and sisters, because we don't have we have not applied the Justice among ourselves, we are not just to each other. And Allah Subhana Allah is letting that to come to us. And we are seeing the effect of that we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us understand the justice and work with the justice and learn from the Father and Son aloha alesina Mohammed Allah Allah he was sorry, he just give us a bench Allah two minutes for setup and this
is a media player presentation. So you will the resolution is not very good, but inshallah you will be able to see and hear Sheikh Hamza Yusuf, in about five minutes, just
the talk, it's in the I can give you a little introduction about that this was presented in last September in the isness Society meeting in Islamic Society of North America meeting. And this session was about justice and Islam, and about what is the role of Muslims in the new world. And the title of this particular lecture by Sheikh Hamza Yusuf, may Allah reward him and protect him was give and take for God's sake, how to give and take for God's sake, how to be truthful to Allah Subhana with Allah, and how to deal with what's happened, not the deal.
Like to go out and sometime do something, how to deal in our hearts. These are very confusing times. For many Muslims, brothers and sisters, then very confusing time many Muslims don't know really where to stand, they see wrongs on many sides, and they don't know which side to take. And in these hard times, we really need the scholars, we need to learn a map to tell us where we are. And this is one of them. You know, many of them out we have many different opinions. And I'm not saying that nobody else has other opinions. But it's one thing that you know, we need to present and shake hands a user is closer to many of us in this country. He is he was born here and was raised here. He knows
the system very well. He understand what we where we live and where we come from, and that gives him an advantage over many other scholars.
