00:00:00--> 00:00:01

We are Okay good.

00:00:03--> 00:00:34

All right smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala early he was happy he may or praises you to Allah He made the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and upon all those who follow his footsteps, to follow His guidance, who follow his Sunnah his way until the very last day. My dear respected brothers and sisters in Islam salam wa Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:00:36--> 00:01:10

Today inshallah huzzah Allah we are going to explore another chapter from amongst the chapters of that great book reassigning him riada Saleh in gardens of the righteous by amendment nawawi rahima who Lakota Ireland today's chapter is entitled babble Emery bill Murphy when Nahanni Moncure is the chapter of enjoining the good and forbidding evil and forbidding the wrong the mooncup and hon morose when now you and in Moncure

00:01:11--> 00:01:27

mmm now we has enumerated a number of eight verses from the code n that deal with this topic. And he has also enumerated a number of Hadith, prophetic traditions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:28--> 00:01:48

that are related to this very, very important, very important area of Islam in joining the good and forbidding the wrong so let's begin inshallah huzzah Allah with some definitions. Now, the word for the word used here is a wolf Alomar off and

00:01:49--> 00:01:54

my roof here in this context is are as defined by the Sharia

00:01:56--> 00:02:14

is those actions that are approved those actions that are approved by the Sharia or acts of worship, which may be via euro or bathinda, which may be apparent or may be

00:02:16--> 00:02:20

hidden, or we can say you know, actions of

00:02:21--> 00:03:13

it could be that you know the actions of the tongue and the actions of the limbs, the actions of the tongue and the actions of the limb, whether people can see them or people they're concealed from the science of people and muroff Okay, that which is good, okay, that which is good is known as a model. And then we have Mancha when you add in one car, Mancha means evil advice, or, you know, bad deeds, prohibitions. Moncure. Okay. So here we're talking about actions that are disapproved by the Sharia. And what heads This is Kufa, Kufa, disbelief, okay, Cofer is the worst, okay, then we have things like for soup, and for soup means corruption, okay, corruption for soup. Or, you know, acts of

00:03:13--> 00:03:38

lewdness. And then there is, for example, major sense which Cofer could fall under a major sin or theft or lying or adultery or Riba Okay, these are major sins, this is Moncure or it could be minor sins, even minor things are also Moncure. So here we have an admirable maroof when you Anil munkar, good and evil.

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

So

00:03:41--> 00:04:12

as you know in Islam, and when it comes to our acts of worship, acts of worship could either be followed by iron or phadke feha. Further, it means it's an individual obligation like what like sola, sola is an individual obligation every single one of us as Muslims have an obligation to pray. Now, we come to another area which is known as photokey failure followed Keifa key failure means it's a communal obligation that as long as some Muslims are performing

00:04:13--> 00:04:24

these actions are certain these the other Muslims are exempt in that community or society. They thought he failed and further means his obligation.

00:04:25--> 00:04:48

So and the proof to this the proof that it is thought of key failure when it comes to enjoying the good and forbidding the wrong, okay. Mmm, no, we actually he mentioned that one of the first verses that he has mentioned, from swift Allium, Ron, verse 104, he says, will Tucker mean come on Matt when you're the owner, No siree.

00:04:49--> 00:04:52

When hona Moncure una chica woman Muslim.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

He says Allah subhanaw taala says let they arise out of you a group of people

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

group of people not all people, a group of people inviting to all that is good inviting to all that is good in joining Alma, Ruth and forbidding al Moncure. And it is they who are the successful ones. So, one of the one of those, if you want to be from amongst the successful people in this life, then one of one of those people is are those individuals who are enjoining the good and forbidding the evil. So, for example, at the head of this we have the prophets and the messengers that was their role in joining the good forbidding the evil, we have you know, and those who are following this in their footsteps, such as, such as the great scholars such as the arts such as those call us to

00:05:45--> 00:06:32

Islam, and even just the general Muslim who is enjoying the good and forbidding the wrong, okay. So, this is something that is very meritorious. Now, if we look at this area, and we analyze this area allows a paradigm that begins by talking about those who who do dour. So, where does it all begin, it all begins with our It All Begins with calling, calling people to that which is good. So it begins first and in, in making apparent and clarifying to people what is actually beneficial for them. So you'd begin with that which is most important, you know, salah and zeca, and cm and hedge. Okay, so so that's general dour, and then we have enjoining the good So after you've clarified to

00:06:32--> 00:06:47

people what is what is defined as good in Islam, beginning with the priorities, then you start to then enforce this, okay? Whether it's you're enforcing it with your children or whether you are a leader of the Muslims who is enforcing it on

00:06:48--> 00:06:54

the people that he is leading, okay, this is an homage to Bill Maher Bill Maher off. Okay?

00:06:56--> 00:06:57

So

00:06:58--> 00:07:42

we'll move on inshallah hota. Allah before I go into the as a Hadith, I want to speak about six conditions, six conditions, or six considerations regarding an admirable model. When it comes to enjoying the good and forbidding the evil. Keep in mind always these six rules. Okay, six rules for reforming for bettering a person or bettering of people making things better six. The first one is that before you enjoin what is good, and you go about propagating Islam to others, and becoming a Dharma worker, you need to ensure that you have knowledge that you have,

00:07:43--> 00:07:45

that you have alien knowledge,

00:07:46--> 00:08:19

of actually what is, for example, prohibited. So you can't just go around, you know, and assuming that that is prohibited, or this and that is prohibited when you have no evidence and no proof because you see, sometimes what happens. Some people due to the ignorance, they they are perhaps enjoining good, that is actually evil, that they go around saying this is good, but it's actually evil, it's Haram, or it's my crew, it's disliked. And then we have,

00:08:20--> 00:09:07

for example, those who are prohibiting prohibiting that which is, which is to them, apparently, Haram, when it isn't heroin, it's from amongst those things that are more back more back means permissible. You know, and I've spoken about this before, but there's no harm in repeating this, that in Islam, when it comes to any act that you do, any action that a Muslim does, will fit under one of five categories. So the first category is that which is whadjuk or or farbe. So, for example, sola sola is virgin or select as far as we say we're reciting Al Fatiha within a Salah is magic. It's compulsory. So there is that which is obligatory there is that which is mobile, which means it

00:09:07--> 00:09:45

is permissible. You know, I want to drink coffee, I want to drink water. I want to have a shower, I want to go for a walk in the park. We say we don't say that's obligatory. We didn't say it is haram wouldn't say it's mcru, who says MOBA MOBA. I mean, if it's permissible, then there are those actions, which are recommended Mr. hub, okay, it's recommended to the symmetries, then we have actions that are makrooh this light, it's disliked to do certain days, certain actions because they can lead to the harm. And then we have actions that are Haram. So anything that you do will fall under one of these five or five categories.

00:09:46--> 00:10:00

So the first the first it's very, very important that we have the proper knowledge of what is permissible, what is impermissible, if you start to make for example, more bare which are just

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

Your allowable days if you start to make allowable dates Haram, what have you done? You've made it difficult on people. You've made it, you can find in your you're really making things difficult on people. Because Islam as I said, it's Haram, why are you making it so difficult on people? So it's very important that we do have, we do have a proper understanding of our Deen a proper understanding. And so the first condition is to have knowledge. Okay. The second condition, or the second consideration when it comes to enjoying the good and forbidding the wrong is to have certainty, to have certainty

00:10:40--> 00:10:46

that when you are doing doubt, when you're doing doubt, what are you enjoying the good or forbidding the wrong

00:10:48--> 00:11:03

with regards to a certain person, that you are certain that that person is doing, for example, something which is haram, or something which is not allowed? You wouldn't come to a person and say to him, you know, how dare you do such and such

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

action?

00:11:06--> 00:12:00

Why are you doing it this way, and you're not even certain that he is. So there needs to be always certainty before you start to criticize. Before you criticize someone. Make sure make sure without a shadow of doubt. Otherwise, you've entered into the realm of one Vaughn van means congestion. Allah subhanho wa Taala in certain hoodrat verse 12, he says, Yeah, are you Hi Lavina I'm understandable. Are you have believed each tenable extendible means avoid a steady will kathira mean avant avoid much assumption of one is assumption. Okay, assuming it's tenable extendible Casino in Nevada one isn't that indeed some assumptions, okay, leads or causes you to become sinful, because you have a

00:12:00--> 00:12:25

bad opinion of somebody. Okay. So, this is very, very important to remember before you accuse anyone, let it be a child, let it be an adult, Muslim, non Muslim. Be sure before you start to reform, otherwise, you could have a negative effect. And that's that's something I'm going to come to in a moment. During the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:12:27--> 00:13:03

A man entered the message during Juma during Friday prayer. And you know the sooner when you enter the masjid is to pray two units of prayer it's good to hear to message him. Even if the Imam is delivering his sermon. I know there is some difference of opinion amongst some scholars regarding this. But the sound is the opinion is if you enter the masjid at any time, then you are required to pray to here to the masjid. Okay, the greeting of the masjid caters to the guard. However, if there is already an obligatory prayer in place, you join the gym or you don't pray the to you join the gym.

00:13:04--> 00:13:13

And if you're praying a swindler pray that's associated with the privilege of having to pray then that becomes your that incorporates your hair too.

00:13:14--> 00:13:59

So anyway, a man walks in to the measure the prophet SAW Selim is on the member and the prophesize salon he says to him, see, this is how the process does not let if he sees something which is inappropriate or something which is not conforming with the sooner process and he would say something. He says to him, Have you prayed? Have you prayed because what happened? The man came and sat down? Have you prayed? He says, I haven't prayed, he said stand up and pray to units of prayer. So what did the prophet SAW Selim do here? he clarified, he made sure why maybe he missed, maybe he may be during his sermon, he just didn't seem you know, you may have been too occupied with your

00:13:59--> 00:14:28

sermon. He may have been too occupied with the sermon that he missed the fact that he actually prayed. So what did he do? He clarified? So let us clarify things before we start pointing fingers and accusing people clarify this is a big problem that we have in our community, you know, with gossip and people engaging in probably slander or demeanor or you know backbiting talking about others and not clarifying and then we have all these rumors

00:14:29--> 00:14:49

you know, so it's very very important that we if we clarify things don't be judgmental, don't mean don't be quick to judge people based on what you heard he say you know, she said or he said this and that okay. So, this is something to remember.

00:14:50--> 00:14:52

Now we move on inshallah, who to Eilat

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

also, for example, given another example, let's say for example, you know, of a woman

00:15:02--> 00:15:12

You see her in the car with a man young man and you've never seen this man before does that mean automatically that she's engaging in something which is haram

00:15:13--> 00:15:26

some people might think Yeah, I saw you I guess what I saw such and such with a man the other day driving in a very far, far away area, you know, and they start assuming the worst you know, and stuff a little law

00:15:28--> 00:16:07

so, so what is that what is that man is her brother? What is that man is her you know, her uncle What if it's, you know, if someone that is related to from amongst them So, be very, very careful, you know, don't accuse people unless you are certain and even if you are going verify and go and you know, go right up to them and say look, you know, I want to remove any suspicion from my heart, I heard such and such, I don't want to have this suspicion about you, I hold a good opinion about you, okay. So, remember this inshallah hotel. So we move now the second so the second condition, we said was,

00:16:09--> 00:16:26

to have certainty to be certain to be certain that the person is committing a wrong action or advice. The third condition, the third condition is, be gentle, be gentle. Okay.

00:16:27--> 00:16:48

When you are enjoying the good and forbidding the wrong, make sure that you're not harsh. You know, Allah azza wa jal, he addresses the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he says to him, lo, Quinta Farben Holly valleys and calbee Langford dohmen Holic Hadji been harsh hearted, holier than

00:16:49--> 00:17:17

thou, the companions, in other words would have fled from around you, they wouldn't even even though you're the Messenger of Allah, people don't want to be around you. And that's why it's very important not to be a person who's always criticizing and always being negative. Okay, it's very important to be a positive person a very, you know, and in positive in your speech, and is always a way of saying things. And remembering that our hearts, okay, the hearts of people,

00:17:19--> 00:18:04

there's a key to entering those hearts. You know, just as we have, you know, each door has a unique key, right? He can't open a door with any key. And likewise, every single one of us on the face of this earth are unique individuals, we are not photocopies of each other. We are not, we don't have the same fingerprints. We are unique individuals. So you have to always find out which key is going to enter this heart. Which way which method? How am I going to penetrate that heart? That's the challenge. Some people is they might require to be a little bit strong and harsh. Maybe that's the way you can you go with children and I would, you know, as a teacher, you know, sometimes just get a

00:18:04--> 00:18:37

scream at a child to get him to do the right thing. But if I screamed at an adult, there's no way I'm gonna get the same result and get him to be quiet or to you know, to do the right thing. So there's a different approach to different people. So be gentle and this is found in the Hadith in Sahih, Muslim the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said metta and at this school, McKenna risko fishing in a lesson a woman was he I mean che in in LA Shanna Mendoza. I mean, who Allah Shanna, that whenever there is a gentleness

00:18:38--> 00:19:27

in something, when you apply gentleness, it beautifies it beautiful. And whenever you remove this, this gentleness, it disfigures, it makes it very ugly. Otherwise, when you're aggressive, you know, another Hadith, the prophet SAW Selim in the Muslim in Allah hi europei in Allah europei other risky mela europea Allah that Allah gives or he blesses gentleness or or risk ease. Allah blesses you or blesses the act that comes about through risk and through ease. He gives that wish it does not give to aileron which is harshness and being in a harsh in your approach. It's very, very important to remember this Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:19:29--> 00:19:37

So the third condition, be gentle, be gentle. Number four, the fourth condition or the fourth consideration is

00:19:38--> 00:19:46

don't go about forbidding an evil or amonkar if it's going to lead to a greater evil.

00:19:47--> 00:19:58

Again, don't go about forbidding an evil amonkar if it's going to lead to a greater evil a greater Moncure

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

So you might be preventing this person from doing harm. Okay? But because you prevented him, he's going to do something even greater, some people are like this. Okay?

00:20:13--> 00:20:22

So this is something that this is a principle in a stand this is that cause of Islam have actually derived the principle about this.

00:20:24--> 00:20:43

So when you have two harms, you should avoid the greater harm from being performed or, or or executed or carried out. I want to just share with you a little incident that happened during the time of the great scholar Ibn taymiyyah him on level two Island, even taymiyah, one day was working in a sham in Damascus.

00:20:45--> 00:20:48

During the time of the the Tata, the Mongols,

00:20:49--> 00:20:50

and

00:20:51--> 00:20:57

he came across, he was with a companion and he came across some individuals that were drinking alcohol.

00:20:58--> 00:21:38

Okay, and he didn't say anything to them. You know, if you come across evil as we were learning, now you try and change it, we're gonna see how you should say something that will change it with your handle. So even taymiyah, who was a great scholar didn't do any of them. It's like saying, you know, you're walking down the road with a great chef. And suddenly, that's really evident. That's really wrong. And the chef just walk past the seasons. There's nothing that doesn't sound right. Okay. Especially in the Muslim context, Muslim country. Okay. So, since companion said to him, why didn't you say anything to them? And because these Mongols were really known for their corruption, right?

00:21:38--> 00:22:16

He said, If I, if I now get them to stop the drinking alcohol, they're the type of people that will go about harming the Muslims, they're going to go and assault the Muslims and they're going to steal from them. Let them pay for now. Leave them to the state of drunkenness. Okay, because if I prevent them, they're gonna come and harm the Muslims. Let them be. You see, this is Hickman, this is wisdom. So when you're doing Tao where you've got to be very wise, in the words that you choose the timing, the place the manner and hc metal fear aluminum body silver chill, the VM doesn't

00:22:18--> 00:22:31

fill up the lithium budget. The hikma has its its ways that you can just either either just don't do dour, you know, hot on brother hot off sister, that's it, you might get a negative reaction. Okay.

00:22:33--> 00:22:52

I'll give you another example. Another another example that can happen in the Western world, especially with you know, Islam being a very fast growing religion. Let's say for example, you have a scenario whereby a non Muslim woman married to a non Muslim man, okay, she embraces Islam.

00:22:53--> 00:22:59

Right. Now she embraces Islam? Is she allowed to stay with her non Muslim husband?

00:23:03--> 00:23:39

The answer is no. The answer, categorically is a Muslim woman cannot be married to a non Muslim husband, non Muslim men. So what do you do? So really, from an Islamic perspective, we say you need to separate immediately from him right. Now. However, some scholars have some scholars in some situations, if they know that the woman is it's going to be hard. I mean, we're talking about two individuals that are connected here that love one another, that they've built so much together. Well, she's found the light and Hamdulillah, she found Islam. But

00:23:40--> 00:23:55

we have a situation here whereby she is very attached to him. It's not easy for us to walk away from a relationship, you know, that you've, you know, your emotions were not rocks at the end of the day, we do have emotions. So what do you do? So this caller said,

00:23:56--> 00:24:00

if you were to say to her, you should leave your husband immediately what could happen?

00:24:03--> 00:24:19

She might, she might leave us then. She might think, you know, she's because she's too tender. It's too early. It's too early on in the in Islam, to actually to to be faked to be facing something as challenging as this, right. So

00:24:20--> 00:24:26

some scholars, they said, what she does, she stays with him for a period of about three months, which is a normal eight day period,

00:24:27--> 00:24:59

normally is a period of three months, until Shia Islam development that you manage stronger, and then she should be able to deal with it. Because Islam is you know, is basically nurturing her heart and the teachings and the Salah, and the environment and the people. So that goes to show this is a classic example. And there's many other similar situations, many other similar situations. So the key word here is Heckman wisdom in how you deal with reform and changing and bringing about the the the American model

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

When you add in one car,

00:25:02--> 00:25:09

I'm going to move on to the next one the fifth condition, the fifth condition is

00:25:10--> 00:25:23

is one there is if there is difference of opinion about this one, this is an interesting one, the fifth condition regarding enjoying the code and forbidding the evil. The fifth condition is

00:25:25--> 00:25:39

must be at the one who is enjoying the good and forbidding the wrong must he or she themselves be doing a practicing what they're preaching?

00:25:41--> 00:25:46

The understand the question, must you be okay, so let's say for example,

00:25:48--> 00:25:50

let's say for example, you

00:25:51--> 00:25:52

listening to music,

00:25:54--> 00:26:07

and, or you are, you know, many, many heroin things that people do, but you come across others who are doing that. Okay, are you allowed to sell them stop listening to music? If you yourself, listen to music?

00:26:08--> 00:26:27

Okay. Some scholars said no, because you're being what you think hypocritical. Okay? However, what seems to be the sound is the opinion. Okay? And this is according to a number of scholars, including Chevron comma double sided, what they mean him on Long Island.

00:26:28--> 00:26:33

He said that no, that should it prevention, that shouldn't prevent you. Because

00:26:35--> 00:26:57

when you are committing a sin, that sin goes back to you. Right? And by you. And at the same time as Muslims, we have a duty to enjoin what is good and forbid what is wrong. So now, that's another thing if you don't, if you don't enjoy the good and forbid the wrong, so now there's two sins, if not one sin upon another sin.

00:26:59--> 00:26:59

Okay.

00:27:01--> 00:27:31

So insane, all of this, generally speaking, those are committing a certain symbol, not, by default, go about and propagating that which they are themselves not preaching, because that's just human nature. As human beings, we're not going to go and propagate something that we're doing, we actually feel the guilt. Okay. But in saying all of this, we still owe it to ourselves to enjoin the code and forbid the wrong no matter what whether we are doing it or whether we are not. Okay.

00:27:33--> 00:27:40

This becomes a little bit like I said, it's a it's a controversial issue. It's a controversial, controversial issue.

00:27:43--> 00:27:47

Let's come on to the sixth and final condition, or

00:27:49--> 00:27:51

that we've been mentioning the sixth condition

00:27:52--> 00:28:16

or consideration, is that the intention, the intention behind enjoining, the good or forbidding the evil is to correct that person to reform that person to better that person, and that it's not done to be victorious yourself, or you're doing it out of revenge, or retaliation.

00:28:18--> 00:28:41

So your sincerity is very important that your the read the whole purpose why you're doing this is you want to make things better for the sake of Allah azza wa jal and which is really goes back to the insincerity and attention that all of us should be applying in any case. So we move on now to the some of the and some of the hadiths that amendment no we Rahim Allahu Allah

00:28:43--> 00:28:48

has included in this chapter of enjoining the good and forbidding the evil.

00:28:49--> 00:29:07

The first area that he mentioned, which we mentioned before with document Matan it on a sad way wouldn't have been my ruffian Hanuman COVID a second as he mentioned, he says, is found this with alien one verse 110 Quantum Pyro metal acacia tree Nesta Muna Bill maruf. Watson how inna Anil munkar

00:29:09--> 00:29:27

Allah says, You and he's referring to the believers you hear other believers. You are the bestest people ever raised up for mankind. How beautiful is that? You Muslims are the best of the best of people raised

00:29:29--> 00:29:32

raised up for mankind. And then he mentions why

00:29:34--> 00:29:47

he mentions three main points. Allah, Allah says, tuck Muna Bill Maher Have you enjoying what is good? What 10 hormonal Moncure and you prohibit what is evil what is advice?

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

What took me noon, I believe and you believe in Allah azza wa jal by doing these three things if we as Muslims continue to to do these three

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

We will remain the best of people

00:30:04--> 00:30:14

in joining what is good for bidding what is wrong and believing in Allah as well as the only load as the only or up as the only card that is worthy of worship.

00:30:16--> 00:30:27

Another area, Allah subhanho wa Taala says while Muna Minato bada boom Alia Oba yet more una bella rose y en Havana and in Moncure

00:30:28--> 00:30:54

he says the believers men and women are only at what's in what's an only at the only yet he is referring to the believers are only a day I helped us and they are the supporters and the friends and the protectors for this comprehensive words of one another why they enjoying Alma roof the good and they forbid people from a moon card which is hum

00:30:55--> 00:31:18

so these are some of the areas that he mentioned. You mentioned other areas, but we don't have time to mention all the eight. Let's go now to the ahaadeeth This is the first Hadith he mentions really is probably one of the most important Hadith. And actually mmm no Rahim Allahu taala in his famous book 40 Hadith has included this hadith in that book as well in the 40 Hadith

00:31:20--> 00:31:33

and it's the hadith of Abu Zeid in the Allahu anhu very Spanish Muslim. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Man, I mean c'mon, Quran fell you higher up

00:31:35--> 00:31:40

in lemmya, Sophia, fabulous and fell in love Yes, Satya Satya,

00:31:41--> 00:31:43

whether Lika of the apple email.

00:31:45--> 00:31:47

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:31:48--> 00:31:52

that whoever from amongst you sees an evil act,

00:31:54--> 00:32:00

he should change it or he must change it with his hand, remove it. Remove the hand, remove the evil if you can.

00:32:02--> 00:32:11

If you are unable to do so, then with your tongue, speak out. Say something. Don't be a new chip on.

00:32:12--> 00:32:21

You see, the shutdown is a shakedown who talks and whispers and tells you to do things. Then there are those who say nothing at all. They see the evil, that's that's satanic as well.

00:32:24--> 00:32:43

And he said, if you're unable to say something, whatever is preventing you from saying something, then you should reject it in your heart. And that is the least of faith with Annika Above all, even the weakest of faith, the least of faith that you can have is to reject something in your heart that you see as being evil.

00:32:45--> 00:32:55

So, in this hadith is a very important prescription. He said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he gives us many prescriptions.

00:32:56--> 00:33:15

Because really, our prophet SAW Selim is the doctor of our hearts, the doctor of our minds, many prescriptions he prescribes for us, for our betterment for our, for us to enjoy this life and to and to be successful in the hereafter.

00:33:16--> 00:33:47

So this is a very important how do you see evil change with your hand? If you're unable to change it with your hand speak out, say something against the evil and if you're unable to speak out, then reject it in your heart rejected in your and that is the least of the face. the other hand if you remember number one Hola Hola. Hola me mentioned in this chapter another Hadith is the hadith of no man. Even bashira Allahu Allahu Akbar is also found in Sahih Bukhari Sahih, authentic hadith.

00:33:50--> 00:34:02

And here the prophet SAW Selim, he gives a very beautiful analogy. So Panama the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he gives the most eloquent of analogies,

00:34:03--> 00:34:05

similarities, similes,

00:34:06--> 00:34:16

in this Hadith, listen to what he says. He says, the likeness of the men who observes the limits prescribed by Allah,

00:34:17--> 00:34:27

and that of the man who transgresses them, is like the people who get on board a ship after casting lots.

00:34:29--> 00:34:43

So he's comparing those who observe the limits of a law those who are doing their obligations and their duties to Allah and those who are not engaged in that which Allah has commanded and that which Allah has prohibited us from doing.

00:34:45--> 00:34:51

So he says, These people now are going to be boarding a ship, this ship has an upper deck and a lower deck,

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

an upper and lower deck. So what did I do? How will you allocate How are you allotted whether you go on the upper deck or

00:35:00--> 00:35:09

Or the lower deck is through lots, you know, what do we say in our day and age you're drawing, you know your name out of a hat. Okay?

00:35:11--> 00:35:18

Some of them are in its lower deck and some of them in its upper deck. Now those who are in its lower deck,

00:35:19--> 00:35:43

okay, so confined both, when they require water, they go to the occupants of the upper deck who's going to be having the water those people who are on top they have access to the water. So, the ones on the lower deck, find that whenever they need water, they have to go up to the top becomes a little bit of a burden, a hassle, each time we need water I need to have to go to the upper deck.

00:35:45--> 00:35:53

So, what did the people on the lower deck say? They say, How about if we make a hole in the bottom of the ship,

00:35:55--> 00:36:03

if we make a hole in the bottom of the ship, we can have quick access to the water easy access

00:36:04--> 00:36:16

and we shall not have any, we shall not be harming any the occupants that are on the upper deck. Now, if they the occupants of the upper deck, the people in the upper deck

00:36:17--> 00:36:32

leave the people on the on the lower deck to carry to carry out their, you know, their design or what they want to do. What's going to happen? Who's going to drown? The people on the lower deck have the upper deck.

00:36:34--> 00:36:44

Hi everyone, because if the ship sinks, everybody is going to drown. So what must the people on the upper deck do?

00:36:45--> 00:37:15

They must be preventing and watching out for those people on the lower deck that they don't put a hole in the boat. Okay, so the purpose I sent him said, but if they do not let them go ahead with their plan, all of them will remain safe. And the truth is found them behind. So what's what is what is the message here the message that promises selling is giving is that the consequences of committing sins. So committing acts which are forbidden, unscramble sins,

00:37:16--> 00:37:21

and not confined only to those persons who commit them.

00:37:23--> 00:37:49

That when we have people in our community, in our society committing sins, it's not only going to be confined to those individuals, it's going to rub on and it's going to affect all of us. We can't allow for sins for some, I'm fine. My family is fine, you know, we're doing okay, we pray we fast we give out a cat, we do our cm. It doesn't work that way.

00:37:50--> 00:38:05

Because these other people, the people on the lower deck, if we leave them to do whatever they want, they can have an effect on our children. Not only that Allah can punish them and as a result of punishing them because we live in the same city.

00:38:07--> 00:38:08

We owe punished.

00:38:09--> 00:38:13

And we'll talk about that in a moment through other Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim.

00:38:14--> 00:38:31

So again, we have to watch out for the people on the lower deck. We can just let them to do whatever they wish to do. Another hottie fell share with you that amendment no we mentioned in this chapter is the hadith of Zeynep. your loved one as she reported the process lm

00:38:32--> 00:38:35

came to visit her and he was very frightened.

00:38:37--> 00:38:40

And he said la isla de la la

00:38:41--> 00:39:09

la ilaha illAllah wale only la Benin shervin productora he said well to the Arabs because of an evil which has drawn me and then he goes on he says today, an opening of the size of this size has been made in the barrier that is restraining the judge and judge gaag and Magog and he made a circle with his index finger. And it's from

00:39:10--> 00:39:18

a hole this big has been made in that barrier that is restraining the judge and judge Corgan Macaca we read about and sort of,

00:39:22--> 00:39:23

she said,

00:39:24--> 00:39:57

synapses are a pseudo law a messenger of Allah, shall we perish, while still there will be righteous people amongst us. So this Okay, are we going to be doomed but this righteous people amongst us are going to affect us? And he said yes, when wickedness prevails, that even though that even though there are righteous people, so in spite of the presence of of some virtuous persons, that community will be destroyed.

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

But on the day of judging

00:40:00--> 00:40:31

judgment on the death resurrection, those noble persons who had done their duty of preaching virtue and chicking evil will stand apart from the sinners. So on the Day of Judgment, Elijah will not punish them with him in his life, it could will mean that we'll the punishment that alized surgeon is going to punish these people with it could also rub onto us, as righteous people and show them that Allah make us often amongst the righteous people.

00:40:32--> 00:40:35

Another Hadith, the hadith of Abu Sidon,

00:40:37--> 00:40:38

which is standing beside him Muslim,

00:40:40--> 00:40:50

the professor loved what he was saying, and he said he Yeah, well, you lose a rocket. He said, the way of sitting on roadways.

00:40:52--> 00:40:56

You know, what do they call loitering? You know, where people just,

00:40:57--> 00:41:00

you know, gala event around,

00:41:01--> 00:41:42

you know, shopping centers and roadways and just sitting on scene really, I think we're here. We're not walking around, Bates about actually sitting there. And he said, beware of sitting on the roadways. So the people said, but we we have, but then we're sitting places we don't have anywhere, you know, pretty much hang out. You know, this is where we see a messenger of Allah. So the process seller said, he said, if you have to sit down if you have to sit otherwise, it's better not to. If you have to sit there then observe the rights of the way that means pathways have rights.

00:41:43--> 00:41:45

So Pelican how comprehensive Islam is.

00:41:48--> 00:41:52

They asked what are the rights of the way he said to lower your gaze?

00:41:53--> 00:41:57

So when you're sitting there, and you have, you know,

00:41:58--> 00:42:00

people walking past and maybe

00:42:02--> 00:42:05

you don't go, you know, checking people out.

00:42:07--> 00:42:16

Also, from amongst the rights of the pathway is the removal of harm. There's some sort of obstruction or obstacle, you know, something removed.

00:42:18--> 00:42:22

I said return the greetings if someone says Santa Monica, Santa Monica Santa.

00:42:23--> 00:42:41

This is the hack of a Muslim, Muslim enjoining the good and forbidding the evil. I'm Robin Morrow, Fernanda and this is why a member now we include this hadith here, because the process lm said part of the rights of the pathway is to enjoin the good and forbid the evil.

00:42:43--> 00:42:55

Next Hadees is Hadith Abdullah, even at best, what the Allahu anhu what Allah that is found in Sahih Muslim here, in this Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:42:56--> 00:42:59

he came across a man who's wearing a gold ring.

00:43:00--> 00:43:11

And the prophet SAW Selim took it off his finger. And he tossed it, he threw it away. And then a man came to the owner of the ring, and he says to him,

00:43:13--> 00:43:29

and actually before the process, I send them an E when the processor was tossing it away. He pulled it off, he actually said to him, he said, You know, one of you takes a live call and puts it on his hand. So when you wearing a gold ring, it's like, you know, you're putting a

00:43:31--> 00:43:34

heartbeat, you know, coal on your, on your finger.

00:43:35--> 00:43:46

It's a serious sin in Islam is not allowed for males to wear gold. Gold jewelry for males is prohibited this categorically Haram, not allowed.

00:43:48--> 00:44:26

Even if it's a wedding band, if you must wear a wedding band, that's another story altogether. Okay. And we say that Islam does not endorse wedding bands. Islam does not endorse wedding bands. Okay? This is from the actions of non Muslims who have who say, in the name of, you know, the Father, the Son, and the Holy, the Holy Spirit, and then they put it on this finger here, the one next to your pinky finger, and they say, Why? Because there's a vein that goes from this finger all the way to the heart, the vein of eternal love.

00:44:27--> 00:44:35

Okay, and what is the ring the ring is circle, the ring is a circle. It's eternal. Okay, it's perpetual. Okay. So,

00:44:36--> 00:44:38

so that's a bit of history about that.

00:44:39--> 00:44:59

But so, so I met going back, going back to the Hadith the men a man comes to the prophesied sell them and he says to him, so I may come back to the man who has a ring toss. And he says to him, take it back. Why don't you take it and sell it? benefit, then just leave it there because not

00:45:00--> 00:45:17

He says, He says we're live by a lot I will never take it when the Messenger of Allah wa sallam has thrown it away. That's it. That's what his time is about that when I hear that something is haram, it's prohibited. I'm gonna leave it off for the sake of Allah azza wa jal,

00:45:18--> 00:45:27

the compromising Islam is submission and surrender and obedience, whereby to Allah whereby I surrender my will to the will of Allah azza wa jal

00:45:28--> 00:45:36

no matter how bitter it is, that's what it's about. I'm going to surrender and submit to Allah azza wa jal and that's what this man did. So

00:45:37--> 00:46:00

this is goes to show that when you see something of evil change it here the president changed it with his hand. I mean, I think you and I can't really do this in this day and age, the process Selim had here he's, you may find yourself in a situation where you can actually do that maybe with a child with your with your son. Okay, because you have that authority and he respects you in that way and he may expect that from you.

00:46:02--> 00:46:04

But again, it goes back to wisdom.

00:46:05--> 00:46:08

Another Hadith is the hadith of

00:46:10--> 00:46:14

Hosea, Allahu Allahu Allah, and it stands for the Timothy this hadith.

00:46:17--> 00:46:37

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, well let the Neff cvad letter Morrow Neville Murphy will attend one Anil munkar out now Yoshi can Allahu and yet the LA come a pub and Minho from method Runa who fella used to Jabu fella eustacia Bula he said,

00:46:38--> 00:46:53

by him in his hand my life is you either enjoying the good and forbid the evil or Allah will certainly soon send his punishment to you, then you will make supplication and it will not be accepted.

00:46:54--> 00:46:56

So part of the acceptance of our,

00:46:57--> 00:47:01

our supplications are in vocations is

00:47:02--> 00:47:27

to enjoin the good and forbid the evil as a community, as a society as an Amen. And when we are doing that and we are making dua, inshallah Allah azza wa jal and Sandra and if we are not, if we are not, in perhaps Allah Subhana Allah May punish us, okay by the denial denying the acceptance of our door.

00:47:29--> 00:47:39

So, to abandon the practice of, of enjoining, that which is virtuous and forbidding evil, is likely to incur the displeasure of Allah azza wa jal.

00:47:41--> 00:47:52

The next Hadith is found in Abu Dawood activity. It is the hottest of Abu Zeid in the region of the Allahu Allahu Akbar, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, of jihad

00:47:54--> 00:48:06

of jihadi Kelly moto ivelina, in the soul pond in jazz era, the best he said, the best type of jihad are one of the best types of jihad

00:48:08--> 00:48:18

that is striving in the cause of Allah azza wa jal is speaking a true Word, the Word the truth, in the presence of a tyrant ruler.

00:48:19--> 00:48:25

Actually, when you see a tyrant on a presser, and you tell him, that's the best of jihad,

00:48:26--> 00:48:45

because people are very fearful, who's going to stand in front of a tyrant who has authority and power and rule and say to him, Fear Allah, what you are doing is haram. Not me, people can do this, if you can do this, and this is the greatest of jihad, Allah xojo, make us run amongst these people.

00:48:46--> 00:49:34

So Jihad has many degrees. There's the Jihad of, you know, military jihad, whether it's defensive or offensive jihad, there is the Jihad of the tongue, of you know, of imparting Islamic knowledge she had of your tongue, there is that she had, you know, of knowledge in the Jihad of the, you know, the militant Jihad that you had of, you know, hiding your wealth, giving a sadhaka. All of this is from amongst many ways, if you had but the process of selling here is saying, it's one of the greatest forms of jihad is to say the truth, speak the truth in front of an oppressor or a tyrant. And in another Hadith, he said, speaking the truth in the presence of a tie relies on a person as opposed

00:49:34--> 00:49:40

to sell them when he had just put his foot in his in his in the syrup, what is the highest form of jihad?

00:49:41--> 00:49:46

So he's actually you know, in a mounting his horse,

00:49:47--> 00:49:52

and he's saying what is the best part of jihad Rasul Allah and he says, it gives him this, it gives him this response.

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

I'm going to end up with the last Hadith that he mentioned in this chapter is the hadith of Abu Bakar Allahu anhu.

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

reported

00:50:02--> 00:50:06

and how do you find a Buddha was an eternity? He said, oh you people.

00:50:07--> 00:50:27

You recite this verse. Yeah, are you Hallelujah? Amen ya come and fusa come later Roman Bala which means you believe, take care of yourselves. If you follow the if you follow the right guidance, no hook can come to you from those who are in error.

00:50:30--> 00:50:45

But I have heard the messenger of assassin I'm saying, when people see an oppressor, but do not prevent him from doing evil, it is likely that Allah will punish them all. So some people may understand this area, this verse,

00:50:46--> 00:50:50

which is in the fifth chapter of the Quran, verse 105,

00:50:52--> 00:51:27

which are repeated i O you who believe take care of your own source. If you follow the right guidance, no hurt can come to you from those who are in error. So some people might say, well look, and I'm doing the right thing. You know, I'm looking after myself in my ear, man, I'm not going to get any sort of harm. Well, this isn't to be interpreted in this manner. The correct interpretation as a worker like Allahu anhu said, that if you do come across oppressors, or oppressive people, don't just be quiet, don't be silent. Say something speak out, speak out.

00:51:28--> 00:51:40

And we all have a duty to be enjoying the good and forbidding the wrong and unbearable morose Moncure hola hola Allah Allah Salallahu salam, wa barakaatuh Nabina Muhammad
