smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam.
ala Mombasa hola hora from attending an amine Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala early he was having h main brothers and sisters in Islam Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.
Today in sha Allah Allah, we are going to be exploring a number of ahaadeeth a number of prophetic traditions to deal with a very important topic
that a man will never hear him a hula, hula Allah in His beautiful book criado sila hain
entitled verbal Tao v mu, automatically muslimeen or Diane Haku to him was Shakti la him warahmatu him which is the chapter to do with reverence towards the sanctity of the Muslims. We've entitled this lecture
in light of this chapter, compassion amongst Muslims compassion amongst Muslims and their sanctity, that is the sanctity of the Muslims.
So no, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, that Muslims have rights, Muslims have rights over each other. And the word for rights in Islam is for all of
you know, there's
so there's a Muslim and a Muslim, the right of the Muslim over another Muslim, Muslim in the rights of Muslims, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he clarified and made clearly evident, Yanni the hook of the Muslims in many Hadith, in many Hadees
so for example, when
when you come into contact with another Muslim,
a Muslim should greet another Muslim with the Islamic greeting, which is what a salaamu Alaikum Assalam Alikum that's the right of your Muslim brother or your Muslim sister that when you see them, that you just don't not say anything. Or you know, but it's them has taught us a very beautiful greeting and that greeting is the greeting of peace. And assalamu alikum its peace beyond to you. Muslims come with peace because we are peaceful people.
You can also say a sellout what
a seller Metallica
say saying a seller morally compared to the puru and saying a salam alayka is singularly addressing a singular person but both are acceptable. Whether you say salam aleikum, WA Assalamu alayka salam, O Allah ke if it's to a female, we won't turn this into an Arabic lesson right now in sha Allah.
And also in Islam, it is it is not permissible. It is not permissible to abandon and the word in Arabic to abandon is hedger, hedger. It is not permissible to abandon your Muslim brother or your Muslim sister in stand for more than three days, if you have had a dispute. If you've had a fallout, if you've had an altercation with another Muslim, Islam allows you a three day cooling off period, three day cooling off period.
So this is permissible, however, the prophet SAW lawani he was sent them indicated that Jani, the one who initiate the cell and first the greeting first is the better of the two.
So you should not be on three days. turn your back on your Muslim brother. You should the better of the two is the one who says he puts his pride aside and who reconnects with that person for the sake of Allah for the sake of God Almighty saying assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. And Islam is against having pride. You know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said lay a total agenda. He will not enter agenda, the one who has a mustard seed amount of pride keep it keep it Yeah.
This is to encourage us not to have this pride.
insane, insane that
one is permitted to abandon another Muslim if there is a benefit in abandoning that person. Okay, for a longer period of time. So if the abandonment was a hazard is to go for beyond
Three days, there needs to be some sort of beneficial outcome as to why you are doing that. So,
for example, if a person is committing a sin outrightly, and it's a, it's a sin that is quite major, or a scene that is very, you know, despised, okay? And by you abandoning that person and not establishing contact, you think that that person, you know, will leave it off. So you're only leaving that person off for the sake of that scene so that they can learn their lesson, you know, that were unhappy with what you were doing, you know, what you were doing is appalling. So if the person feels that that's sort of abandonment, if you feel that that sort of abandonment is going to create a better outcome, you are allowed the LMS said, You are allowed to abandon for more than
However, if abandoning a person more than three days, for a sin that a person is doing, and you know that there's not going to come about a better outcome, then you shouldn't abandon for more than three days. So the condition is that you know, that this person, if I detach myself, he might rethink it and come back to his senses. That's what I might have said.
So that's the condition. Now, remember, now we are a Hema Allahu taala. In the author of the sila when he included several verses from the Quran. several verses from the Quran related to this chapter.
And from amongst the verses that he included, is a verse from Sora and Hajj, verse 30, Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says, that Lika woman you have them format ilahi, for who are higher Allahu endora.
That he has been commanded.
And whoever honors the sacred, Allah says, Whoever honors the sacred ordinances of Allah. Okay, it is best for him in the sight of his Lord. Now the word here is ferromet, whoever, and whoever honors the the Hebrew mat. The question is, what is Hello, Matt? Hello, Matt, are the sacred,
you know, those sacred and respected matters, that should not be violated, or that should not be disrespected, that should be honored. And
so when we talk about this, we're talking about three main areas. When it comes to for example, honoring certain places, honoring certain times and honoring individuals. Let's go back. When it comes to places for example,
we must honor for example, the two holy messages in the cabinet, and the metrical Haram in Mecca, and the messenger netherwing, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his message, or, in addition, the message of alkaloids in Jerusalem. These are the three holy or sacred mosques of sacred masajid of Islam. We need to honor and have respect when we are in these places upmost respect for these places. So that's with regards to place with regards to time. For example, there are certain seasons or certain times that we must also honor when it comes to example for season of Hajj, or the season of Ramadan, or the season or the or Friday, every Friday is a sacred day for the Muslims. Or, for
example, the two days that the Muslim celebrated the two Muslim celebrations even further apart, we need to honor those those times and not act in a very, you know, complacent or very disrespectful manner, manner regarding them. So that's with regards to places with regards to individuals, we honor all of the prophets and all of the messages that were commissioned and center mankind.
The Quran mentions 25 prophets and messengers by name, but they were more than that they were sent to human to human beings over the passage of time. from Adam alayhis, salaam to
to all of the prophets to know and Ibrahim and Moosa and Isa And the final one being Prophet Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Now, those who honor these places these times in these individuals, the prophets, the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim, Allah subhanaw taala, he praised the Sahaba he praised the companions and honoring Muslims.
honoring your Muslim Brethren, your brothers and sisters. That's why we are one big family as Muslims. You know and today we have some 1.7 billion Muslims in the world. Islam continues to be a very fast growing Deen, fast growing religion.
So, this is, whoever honors these things, it is best for him in the sight of Allah. Allah loves this.
This is something that we need to keep in mind inshallah Hosanna. From amongst the format, the format that we're talking about the sacred
masses are your Muslim brothers and your Muslim sisters, respecting them and giving them what and giving them the position. It is not allowed for a Muslim to scorn automation mock or to abuse his Muslim brother, his Muslim sister.
In the mid 30s, found the Sahara Muslim, this is part of the Hadith. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, he said, a Muslim is the brother of a Muslim.
He does not oppress him. No, does he fail him? No. Does he lie to him? No Does he hold him in contempt.
It is evil enough for a man to hold his Muslim brother in contempt, or disrespect.
So it is evil enough to transgress the limits against your Muslim Brava whether you do this in your heart, or whether you do this with your tongue, or whether you do this with your hand or with your limbs.
And the one who does this is acid, as in meaning says he is sinful part of honoring
the matters that Allah has commanded to honor and respect our contractual agreements, or contractual agreements. If you have an agreement with someone, Islam teaches us to honor your agreement.
On the your agreement, very important, it's, um, it's very particular about this, whether it's between you as a Muslim and another Muslim, or whether it's between you as a Muslim and a calf here, and a non Muslim.
And there are three possible scenarios here when it comes to contractual agreements. Number one,
those that you have an agreement with them, you have an agreement with them, and they honor their agreement with you, and you have no theory that they're going to this honor the agreement with those people, you continue with the agreement, and you continue to fulfill the agreement that you have the terms and the conditions of that agreement. That's one scenario. The second scenario is this. The second scenario is that you have an agreement with another party and they violate that agreement. What is your position as a Muslim? they violate the agreement. Well, in this case, okay. Allah subhana wa Tada. And this is an instance based on an incident that happened at the time of the
Prophet Mohammed I sell them were Muslims entered into an agreement with the non Muslims and the non Muslims violated the agreement. Allah subhana wa Taala says, firmest upon lakum festa de Mola, whom Mustapha Mola Mola. So as long as they are upright towards you, as long as they are upright towards you, be upright towards them.
Therefore, those who break a condition or conditions to conditions, then you may no longer honor the agreement. An example of this happen at the prophet SAW Selim between the kurush. And between the prophet SAW Selim, which is known as the treaty or the agreement of who they were, there was an agreement of peace between the Muslims, and between the polytheists of kurush, a 10 year agreement, and the corporation violated that agreement and killed some Muslims. There was a violation of the agreement. That's it, it's off.
We will now no longer honor your agreement, you have violated.
in suta, tober, verse 13, Allah subhana wa, ala, he says, Anna tokachi Luna pohlmann nakasu, a man who were Hammurabi Roger suli, were whom
were whom by the EU come up with a Mara attack Shona home from LA who have a tough show who in control mode meaning Allah says, Would you not fight a people who broke their oath
Determined to expel the messenger and they had begun the attack upon you the first time do you see them?
But Allah has more right that you should see him if you are truly believers.
The third scenario,
when it comes to agreements is those who have not broken their contractual agreement. But you see that they made betrayed that agreement, there is some uncertainty, you have your doubts because of the suspicious behavior
system has spoken about this. So, these types of people must be informed that there is to be no binding agreement between them. And Allah subhana wa Tada. He says we're in metaphor, often in home theater and
fan funded, he lay him on a server in the law. And for any, if you have reason to see from a people betrayal, to see from a people betrayal, throw their Treaty through their Treaty back on them, throw the treaty back on them, putting you on equal terms. Indeed, Allah does not like traitors. Indeed Allah does not like traitors.
Mmm nahi Rahim Allah, Allah. He also in this chapter included a verse from Al Hajj, verse 32,
Allah subhana wa tada says, There Lika one man you have in sha Allah, He for in the ham in Tuckwell kulu.
That is, so whoever honors the symbols or the rituals of a light Indeed, it is from the piety of the hearts
share your Orisha in
the apparent acts of worship, the apparent acts of worship, okay, whether they be major acts of worship or minor acts of worship, we need to honor them, we need to honor the Shah, if these are the symbols and rituals, for example, what's in what some examples of Shai? For example, Sana
powers around the curb, sorry, when you go between software and malware, to perform your camera or your hedge,
and then the corporate a farmer, these are all from the rituals and the symbols of Islam, part of the fabric of Islam.
Read it to fit the level of
praying in Jamaica in the masjid.
Okay, these are all from the Shah, and so on and so forth. Allah Subhana Allah is saying that whoever honors these things, then this is a good sign of your taqwa. The more you honor, the more you honor these things, this is a very good indication of your love of Allah, and your love of Islam, and your devotion and your passion. But if you treat these matters lightly, you know, no big deal, you know, these things are just, you know, we live in the, the 21st century and, you know, these things are really only applicable back then. No, we, it's these the teachings of Islam and the and those things that we should honor in terms of place and time and people who are replicable to
every time and place until the day of judgment. That's the beauty about Islam, the consistency, the consistency,
and the more that you show respect, and the more that you honor and the more that you elevate these rituals, this is evidence of your taqwa of your God consciousness and you reverence of Allah azza wa jal So, this is a very good way of gauging of measuring your Eman is how are you with respect to these things? Do you treat them lightly if you're treating them lightly, you got to get on the on the the men the men any exercise, you know training
you got to work your email you got to boosted inshallah, okay. There is an issue. So, this is what we need to keep in mind when it comes to the rituals of Allah azza wa jal insert, verse 88, Allah subhana wa ala, he says, What's the general meaning, which literally means and lower your wing and lower your wing to the believers? You know that a bird? A bird when it's flying, it gets, it gets high, but how does it get high? You
gets high by bringing down it swings. Okay? So the more you humble yourself, the more you show humility the higher Allah azza wa jal raises you. Isn't this a beautiful analogy that Allah azza wa jal is giving. He's saying, What's the gender hacker? What's the general meaning and lower and lower your wing to the believers? In other words, humble yourself through your words and through your actions Be humble.
And because the attitude of a Muslim towards another Muslim is one of compassion and mercy, we deal with other people, through compassion, and through and through mercy.
In sort of effect, verse 29, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Mohammad Rasool Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. Will levena ma a*a wa Kofi Fannie Lou Hamer Urbina, whom he said, and those with him
and he goes forceful against the disbelievers, those who are attacking us. We're going to show them compassion, you're attacking me. Okay, you're, you're showing me hostility. I'm not going to just lower myself to you. However, he says, he said and amongst the Muslims, they are merciful. They are most of them. Okay. Now. So we have been commanded by the brothers and the sisters in Islam. We have been commanded to humble ourselves towards our Muslim brethren.
Even if you occupy a lofty position, even if you are, you know, the prime minister or the, you know, or the
president or you occupy you in your manager, you're a director, you're a teacher, you're a chef whenever you are, that it be what you are, okay, but you should always Humble yourself. Always Be humble. And the more There is a saying mantha mantha mantova that when you shadow refer Allah Allah subhanaw taala elevates you. Okay, the more you show, Jani, this humbleness Allah elevates your status, new position. Okay. So, when, for example,
a person who occupies a high status may feel sometimes, how can I reduce myself there's a poor person here, you know, I'm not going to get down to that level or, or a child, I'm not going to, you know, act like a child with him or that's, that's not that's the opposite. Islam is teaching us to humble yourself with these people, even though you occupy a high position, okay? Otherwise, if you're not doing that, where's this coming from shape on shaytaan is whispering to you? Are you too good for that you're too good for him or too good for her. You know, it's this is often the shape and shape and the Devil Satan, he works in different ways. Okay, and insert a lot of verses 16 and
17. Allah Subhana Allah says, Allah fabula of whitening the fo de la home Sirocco. Mr. Payne is telling us what Satan says. Satan says because you have put me in error. I will surely sit in wait for them on your straight path. shaitan is always going to be waiting on those on the straight path and he wants to derail you. He wants you to go off the road.
And then he says, Allah says in the Quran what he says from the arity and no human being at him woman healthy more and a man him one Shama le him 132 Apsara home check it in, then I will come to them before them, before them from behind them and on the right and on the left. And you will not find most of them grateful to you. So this is how the shape on works. The shape on is always out to to implant these thoughts to make you to make you have pride. Because once you have pride that's going to destroy you. So always remember to humble yourself amongst everybody, no matter who you are, no matter how much you know wealth you have, no matter how much power and authority you have.
This has come from Allah azza wa jal and will lie within a moment Allah azza wa jal can just take that away from you.
Just like that, and Allah has done that to many people from from the past. So we move on to the Highgate some beautiful Hadith today, some beautiful Hadith that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has mentioned regarding the chapter of being on the topic of being compassionate and being merciful and the sanctity of Muslims.
the sanctity of life regarding the sanctity of life, Allah in the Quran before going to the Hadith, in such a diverse number 32
Allah subhanho wa Taala says that if anyone killed a person, not in retaliation of murder,
and on all to spread mischief in the land, it would be as if, as if he killed all of mankind.
And if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all of mankind.
So when you kill someone, okay, and there isn't a just reason to kill him and killing him, here was what he's talking about, for example, if if somebody has killed a family, family member, and you in Islamic country, the capital punishment can be taken out on this person, you don't take the action yourself and go and do that you take it you go to the authorities, of course. So If, however, if you kill somebody, okay, and rightfully, unlawfully, then it's It is as if,
No, it's as if you have killed all of mankind. That's how serious it is. And if you just save one life, one life, it's as if you've saved the life of all of mankind. This is in the Quran, the teachings of Islam, and let every single non Muslim who thinks otherwise about Islam and the Muslims be aware of this.
Let's go to the Hadees. The first Hadith is from Bukhari and Muslim and basically in this Hadith, the prophet SAW Selim, he compares.
He compares us as believers to the bricks of a building, that we support each other. Listen to the words of the prophet SAW Selim. The prophet SAW Selim said minoo little mini Caledonia and he should do Baba who Babu Baba he says that the relationship of the believer with another believer is like the bricks of a building each strengthens the other you know, when you have a building or the bricks come together, you've got a structure. But if one brick is here, and one brick is there, and they're not, you know, together, the structure is gonna fall apart. You're not gonna have that structure. So this howdy enjoins unity in the Muslim community
unity in the Muslim community, and that's what's required each member of each member of the Muslim community is that brick
is that brick
and Muslims are like the hand the hand and arm
okay the hand and arm relationship join together they are bound to cooperate with one another.
The next Heidi
is is a very is a is a hadith that I'm sure
people who work in the area of Occupational Health and Safety could relate to and would like a lot. You know, you've heard of OSHA h&s, occupat, occupational health and safety.
Listen to this Howdy.
It's found in Bukhari and Muslim it's the hadith of Abu Musab Allahu anhu, Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Whoever enters a mosque msgid or passes through our market passes through the shopping center
with arrows with him, you know, back then they used to carry their arrows, you know, bow and arrows, carry them wherever they go, you know, arrows have sharp ins.
He said he should hold them by the heads less they should injure any of the Muslims how the arrows in case you're walking past any, some respect someone who you stab someone. So we have a duty of care as Muslims when we are in public.
So if you know that you are driving a car, for example, that is going to cause that could
suddenly could happen to harm somebody else are you carrying something, you know, sometimes we buy all sorts of things, maybe from the hardware and we walk out, you have to be very careful not to hurt anybody.
You have a duty of care, for example, in your workplace to make sure that things are safe, so nobody's going to get injured because they're working for you. They are assuming you they're working in a very safe environment.
So we always have a duty of care as Muslims towards towards others. So Islam has made a forceful and elaborate arrangement for the security and the lives of others.
The next Hadees
is another very beautiful Hadith.
And this hadith gives us an analogy of how we should be like the human body towards each other. And this hadith is found in Bukhari and Muslim it's the hadith of not not even bashira level and humor.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, the believers in their mutual kindness, compassion, and sympathy are just like one body, like one human body. When one of the limbs suffers, when one of the limbs suffers, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness and fever.
So this harness is telling us for example, that, you know, when you have a headache, you feel like your whole body is, is suffering as well. But you you have injured your finger. You feel that pain throughout your body, it's just your finger, but you're in a bad mood. You're in a in a mood, we just, you know, you just don't want to do anything in so much pain. That's how Muslims are towards the other Muslims brother, the other Muslim brothers and sisters, like a body. We all like this one buddy. If somebody is suffering, I'm suffering with you. If you're feeling pain, if there are Muslim suffering in Syria, Muslim suffering in Afghanistan, Muslim suffering in Iraq, in Indonesia,
wherever they may be in Palestine, wherever they may be in the world, if they are suffering, irrespective of the color of their skin and the language that they speak, I am also suffering with them.
That's what it stem teaches us. I'm feeling the pain. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said Whoever goes to sleep
and does not is not concerned about the matters of the Muslims. And he's not one of us is not a committed follower. We are always concerned about others. Islam teaches us altruism. Islam teaches us to be selfless and not selfish.
The next Hadeeth
is basically saying show mercy, show mercy or you will not be shown mercy. If you don't have mercy towards others, how do you expect mercy to be shown to you? It's the hadith of Abu huraira Allahu Allah is also found in Bukhari Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he reported, he reported
and reported that the prophet SAW Selim, he kissed his grandson and hesson
and has an even the son of it was a loved one.
In the prison's of Accra even had this
and this Accra
fellow, or person, he said, I have 10 children, and I have never kissed any one of them.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looked at him
and he said, manleigh, yahama, Durham, that whoever does not show mercy to others will not be shown mercy. Beautiful woods, very comprehensive, very simple. Don't show mercy to others, you won't be showing mercy. We know in another way, what goes around, comes around.
Do unto others what you would like to be done for yourself.
So again, Islam encourages
one of the signs, one of the signs
of your of your own mercy and your compassion, do you want to gauge your how merciful you are and how compassionate you are? How are you with your children? Do you kiss them? Do you show them that love and that affection?
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the in another Hadith also spoke about this this is the hadith of hiding Muslim. How do you find a Shabbat your loved one and Allah be pleased with
some veterans, some veterans came to the prophet SAW Selim and asked, Do you kiss your children? He said yes.
He said, they said by Allah, we do not kiss them. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said to them, our only coup in Canada who naza I'm in palooka como Rama, I cannot help you if Allah has snatched kindness from your hearts.
So this is a sign that you don't have Rockman you don't have compassion, you don't have mercy.
Also, if you are after the mercy of Allah azza wa jal
then be merciful yourself. You want the mercy of Allah I doubt any of you are going to say no.
In this next Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Men layer has been so layer Hamill law, men layer feminists, whoever does not is not merciful towards people. A lot
Will Not Be merciful towards him. And the Hadith is found way in Bukhari and Muslim.
The next Hadees
encourages immense. Those who are leading praise if you're the man whether you are in a Masjid in a mosque or whether you are the man in your home, to show compassion and to show leniency and mercy
and to be empathetic.
In the hadith of Abu hurayrah radi Allahu Allahu Allah responsible for a Muslim
is reported that the prophet SAW Selim said, when one of you leads the Salah, he should not prolong it.
Because the congregation that move the people behind you, includes those who are who are feeble, who are weak, who are ill, who are old.
And one version as those who have to attend to work.
And it goes on and he says, while offering prayers alone, you may prolong it as you like.
So when you're the man, you think behind you, and not all young people, they're not all youthful people. When you pray in the masjid, in a mosque, there's going to be old people that can't stay in long periods of time and Salah there is a sick person, he come up with his praise, feeling ill he can't wait to go back home and sleep because of his illness. There is a weak people. So again, being considered always Islam teaches us to be considerate in all situations, even in our very act of worship.
Are you by yourself at home praying for God's sake, you want to read the whole quote and do it research Bakara, an alien blind and go for gold. But when you are with others be considered,
Now in in shortening the print and shortening the prayer as an image, one thing you have to keep in mind, don't get any, okay? doesn't mean you're going to go and you know, bow and do your suit up and down without fulfilling the requirements of the salon. You still have the duty to pray as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam taught us to pray and there has to be tranquility without threat the Select there has to be the for sure.
But we're just talking about the length of the actual citation.
Also we find from the mercy of the prophesized celyn remembering he's a very merciful person, Prophet, and Allah says about him in southern Africa, methanol me that we have commissioned you and sent you as our ohana to all of mankind. He's a mercy He is a mercy to all of mankind, not only to the Muslims,
his teachings are merciful. And from amongst this we see, for example, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would leave off deliberately voluntary actions, acts of worship, he would leave them off, purely out of fee that maybe they're going to become compulsory. If I keep this up, maybe it might become compulsory, Allah will obligate us upon upon the Muslims.
In the Hadith that is found
in Bukhari and Muslim it's the Hadith of
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would sometimes abstain from doing something you wish to do. Less others should follow Him and it might become obligatory upon them.
This the compassion of the prophet SAW sin.
Also the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he prohibited in Islam, what's known as soul model Western, which is a continuous fasting that you fast perpetually every day. This is not allowed
without breaking your fast for several days, in the habit of Arusha, also regular one How about her and the highest is found in Bukhari and Muslim. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he prohibited companions out of mercy for them from observing continuous fasting without a break. It's called al recyle.
They said, but you observed fasting continuously because the prophets Mohammed Salah said he himself with practice this, he would go for days,
only fasting without a break. So he wouldn't break his fast that matter of time.
But he would continue to either to the next day, to the next month, or the one after it.
This is called resign. The purpose of selling prohibited that we do is that we imitate him or that we mimic him with regards to this act of worship. And he said, when I said when you do this, you're a pseudo Allah. He says I am not lying.
You, he said I am not like you I spend the night while my rod provides me with food and drink. So this means that Allah has bestowed upon the Prophet SAW Selim, the power of endurance, like that of a person who eats and drinks. This is a favor from Allah azza wa jal and it should not be taken to me that I'm not a human being like you because prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a human being
we have to remember this when Mohammed ones we don't worship Mohammed Salaam. I said he's a prophet.
You see this The thing with Islam and prophets is that we don't elevate them to the status of lordship
or worship, we don't worship them, and we don't degrade them to the level of they're just human beings. No, they in the middle, and that's why whenever we say Mohammed, we say, in our Salah, for example, we say what ash had to endure Mohammed Abdullah, who was Sulu, Abdul Wahab means a servant of Allah and His messenger.
this is what needs to be kept in mind inshallah, who Thailand and we find that the mercy of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is unparalleled, his compassion and his mercy is unparalleled. And this next Hadees also shows us this and displays This is the hadith of Abu Qatada and Harris, even Robbie ardila, one who and it's phenom Bukhari,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I stand up to lead solid, I stand up to lead the prayer
with the intention of prolonging it. I've got an intention to prolong that prayer I want to recite a long chapter a longer than usual chapter.
He said that then I hear the crying of an infant. Because you know with congregational prayers, they are not limited to to the men to the males, but females are allowed to attend the congregational prayer. It is not compulsory for females
and they are not to be prevented from going to the masjid to perform the gemera prayer as long as there is no fitna there is going to come about no fear of a fitna
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, let him know EMA Allah He must he the law
do not prevent the female slaves of Allah servants of Allah or women from going towards the houses of Allah attending the houses of worship to perform the priests. So now we have women who were coming to the prayers and they might have the infants with them.
Now if they know by the way that their child is going to be disruptive or disturbing the Gemma, it should be avoided because you don't want to be going going there and spoiling the praise spoiling the praise of others.
So he said, I stand up to lead the Salah with the intention of prolonging it. Then I hear the crying of an infant and I shorten the Salah. I shorten the Sunnah less I shall make it burdensome for his mother.
Luca who's thinking about he's thinking about some woman in the messenger. He doesn't know some mother, but he knows that that child is not even thinking about himself or thinking about the congregation. He's thinking about how hard is it on that mother now who's listening to her child crying?
So he shortens the prince sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
in Necker Island, we have sent you as a mercy to all of mankind. That's the prophet SAW said he's a prophet of mercy. He's a prophet of
Islam Hadees that mmm and now we included teaches us that fudger in Jamal, that when you pray a budget in congregation, you will be in sha Allah under the protection of Eliza Will you be putting
around you a shield? It's the hadith of ibn Abdullah Abdullah one who Alba and it's found in Sahih Muslim.
Here, the prophet SAW Selim said when anyone offers the budget, when anyone offers the dawn pray in congregation, he is in the protection of Allah.
So let not Allah call him to account withdrawing in any respect his protection, because he will get hold of him and throw him down on his face in the hellfire.
So, in other words, a Muslim who does not care to adhere to the agreement.
And thereby shows disobedience to Allah will be answerable to him on a day of judgment. Now also
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this next Hadees advises us to live as Muslims like a family that we're all one big family.
In the Hadith says
the hadith of avian Rama with your love and humor, and it's found them bahaya Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said as a Muslim or Muslim
lay of the moon while you sleep Whoo hoo.
Men can if he had, if he can Allahu Fie Hagerty, Yeoman farmer Jan muslimin, Kuru baton, Fairbridge Allahu anhu be hakuba 10 min Caribbean Korean woman cetara Muslim and satara hula Yeoman piano. The prophet SAW Selim, he said a Muslim, a Muslim is a brother of another Muslim. So he should not oppress him, nor should he Hand him over. In other words, to his shape on
whoever fulfills the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfill his needs. And whoever removes the troubles of his brother, Allah will remove one of his troubles and adult judgment and erection and whoever covers up the faults of the Muslim Allah will cover up his fault and adult judgment.
Isn't that beautiful? We like one big family. We're looking out for each other. We're helping recovering. You know, you saw your Muslim brother, you know, commit a sin. He didn't do it publicly. He did it, you know, or he did or has a fault or he did something you cover up for him exposing that person, you come and advise him advise her for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, nothing personal.
This is how the Muslim attitude should be.
In a similar Hadith, in a similar Hadith that is found in the telemovie Hadith, the Allahu anhu Allah, the prophet SAW Selim, he said, a Muslim is a brother to a Muslim, he should neither deceive him, no lie to him, no leave him without assistance. And he says everything belonging to a Muslim is inviolable for a Muslim his honor, his blood and his property. We spoke about that in last week's lesson. piety is here. And he said, A taqwa una a taqwa Hakuna Matata, Hakuna piety is here, it's in the heart.
piety is in the heart, piety is in the heart. He said, It is enough for a Muslim to commit evil by despising his Muslim brother, is committed evil by despising
also in the next Hadees It teaches us the importance of mutual brotherhood and goodwill amongst Muslims. It's the hadith of Abu hurayrah Allahu anhu. And the Hadith is founded Sahih Muslim, he said do not envy one another, do not inflate prices by over bidding against one another.
And do not hate one another do not have a malice against one another and do not enter into commercial transaction when others have entered into that transaction.
So you've you've done a deal you're breaking a deal with someone you commit to that deal. If someone wants to offer you more, and you've already committed you don't go breaking the deal.
And Muslim is the brother of another Muslim he needs oppresses him notice he looked down upon him notice he humiliate him pieties here, instead of three times pointing to his chest. It is enough evil for a Muslim to hold his brother Muslim or Muslim brother in contempt, or things that are Muslim are inviolable for his brother in faith, his blood, his property and his honor.
And what sums up most of what we have been talking about are a few words to prophesize LMC
in the hobby fair, is founded Bukhari and Muslim it is the hadith of Anna soggy Allahu Allahu Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, you may know how to come had, you hit belly as he man you have good enough see that none of you are true believers. until until you desire for your brother what you desire for yourself.
Now you may know how to come help you head up, he may your head going up. See
that's what samsara you are not a true believer until you start caring for your other Muslim brothers and sisters.
Showing them compassion, showing them sympathy, empathy, Russian mercy.
stem is teaching us consideration of others
and not selfishness
Do not be selfish. Practice, give, be open handed, give, give you give you from your wealth gift from your time give to your Muslim brothers and sisters give to others.
And Islam encourages even stopping the oppression of the oppresses.
This next habit is very interesting. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said also Africa volumen, our maluma
also Africa volumen Alma bloomer, he said,
he said, help your brother, whether he is an oppressor
or is oppressed.
The Hadith is Hardison, Anna sagala. Juan was founded by a Muslim.
If you listen carefully to the woods, he's saying, help your brother help him even if he's an oppressor, help him. So when the Sahaba heard this, on the Sahaba heard this, they said, a man he inquired in a cinema I help him when he's oppressed, okay, if he's a person meant to help him,
but how can I help him if he's an oppressor?
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
he said to him,
he said, you can keep him
from committing oppression, that will be your help to him. So if you can make that person as an oppressor,
stop his oppression by you advising him, then that's how you have helped him by advising him and talking to you, and the prophets are selling in another Hadith. He said, the best form of jihad
is the word of truth. In front of
an oppressor or a tyrant, that's the best form of jihad we don't feel his tyranny.
From amongst the things that we need to keep in mind is that Muslims have rights over other Muslims.
And in the hadith of Abu hora de la Mancha that is found the bahaya Muslim Okay, we learned about five rights of your Muslim brother or your Muslim sister, they have five rights What are they need to know.
A believer owes another believer five rights number one responding to his greeting. If somebody says to you As salam o Alaikum, it is your obligation to say y equals seven.
visiting him in illness, if you know that somebody is ill, then we should visit that person. Islam encourages
that we Marines visiting the sick.
Number three, following his funeral, somebody has died. We go to the funeral.
accepting his invitation. If you get invited to a feast or a meal, don't turn that down. That's not from the stoic etiquette to do that you should go if you turn it down without a valid reason. Okay, if you have a valid reason, you can turn it down. I'm sorry, I've been invited already. No problem. I've already got a commitment. There's no problem. But when you don't have anything, why are you turning down that invitation? It's not from the spirit of Islam.
And number five, saying your hammock Allah saying your hammock Allah may Allah have mercy on you. When he says Alhamdulillah when he sneezes when a Muslim sneezes, he says that hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Praise be to Allah. When you hear someone say Alhamdulillah it becomes your duty to say your hammock Allah.
Now, it's not one of those things where it's a communal obligation. It's an individual obligation. So okay, I sneeze I say Alhamdulillah someone has heard me
and they say a comical
so just because someone has already said amakhala does that mean everybody else is exempt know, every single person who heard him say and handler should say your honkala so if I'm sneezing if I sneeze right here, as I'm giving this lecture and I say Alhamdulillah I've got a microphone in front of me. But I have an audience of a million people. All of you have to say to me are humble cola. I wish I can sneeze one day you know why?
You know why? Because if if I say Alhamdulillah and you say of Himachal or you know what you were saying to me? may Allah have mercy on you. And imagine a million people saying may Allah have mercy on you as a
as a supplication. Shall one day I just sneeze
I can earn that, that route that blessing inshallah.
There's a five in this hadith in another Hadith, similar Hadith he mentioned a sixth one, which is that that when he seeks your counsel, you give him advice. If someone comes to you, and then after your advice, you have a duty to give them advice, if you are well equipped, and you have the skills, and you have the information that can help that person.
You see how his time is very considerate. It even imposes on us these things so that we can remain in harmony and remain like that building. That's why these teachings exists not to make it hard on us. But we need to remain united and strong. And these little things that we're doing here and there
are uniting us physically are uniting our minds and our hearts.
The last How do you feel mmm no we included in this chapter
includes a command to observe seven things and to prohibit us from seven things.
The prophet SAW said them in the hadith of Allah even as the Allahu anhu man, the Hadees is found in Bukhari Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he commanded us to observe seven things, and forbade us from seven he ordered us to visit, to visit the sick, to follow funeral processions, to respond to a Caesar who says your hammock Allah and he says hamdulillah to help the oppressed and to help others to fulfill their oaths to accept invitation and to promote greeting most of these we heard in the previous Hadith.
And he forbade us to wear gold to wear gold rings, Muslim males, Muslim males are not allowed to wear gold rings. Muslim males are not allowed to wear jewelry, the only acceptable jewelry would be maybe you know, and watch isn't really a short piece of jewelry but you wear a watch and a ring for example, if you want to go by the Federal process and he wore a ring on his pinky finger that had a stone on it.
As for the engagement ring and you know marriage, wedding rings and reading benefit from the culture anyway.
But this may be permissible if you're just wearing it culturally speaking, but still this is something that I might have condemned
for, for other for certain valid reasons.
But again, he said he forbade us to wear gold rings and to drink in suit silver utensils, you know drinking from gold and silver utensils, shows pride. Muslims remember we shall always humility and humbleness she can't drink in a vessel that is made of pure gold. Not gold doesn't like color. That gold isn't it's made out of 18 karat gold, or it's made out of Sterling, it's made out of silver. None of that
has to be something of any another material.
To use may or may still carpets placed on saddles or to wear alkazi which is a kind of silk cloth in a Muslim mouth and allowed to wear silk
to wear fine silk brocade. This is applicable to the males. So this is the last How do you fit in them and know we included in this chapter.
I ask Allah azza wa jal to keep our hearts united to keep us our souls united and for us to be always considerate of each other and to be empathetic towards each other and sympathetic and merciful towards each other in this life. Now Allah subhanaw taala show all of us mercy and show all of us compassion, or sallallahu wasallam alphabetic Allah Bella collina Vina Mohammed will love with Allah Allah ma salat wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
