Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad
Ali he was happy he edged main praises due to Allah and may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and upon all those who follow his Sunnah who follow his tradition, his way his belief until the last day respected brothers and sisters in Islam. Salaam Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
Today inshallah huhtala we are continuing the discussion from the book riobel sila heen by mmm will never we have a Hema hula huhtala whereby he has an entire book entitled The Book of manners and today inshallah hotel is chapter emammal. Now we rahima hula hula Allah He entitled it Babel warfare ability we're ingesting What? Basically it is about fulfilling your promises, fulfilling your promises. And the promise here is the word for promise here is a lad Allah had and a memo now with Rahim Allah who Tyler he began this chapter
with four, four verses from the Quran whereby Allah azza wa jal gives us directives regarding promises. And then a man will know we Rahim Allah who tyla he included three ahaadeeth or hadiths traditions to do with this topic and to do with fulfilling your promises. Now, the first area
that a man will know we rahima Hello Darla included is found in
Surah verse 34, whereby Allah subhanahu wa tada says, 104 b la D in Allah de Cana masuleh. Allah subhana wa Taala. In his glorious book the Quran he says and fulfill and fulfill every covenant. A covenant is an agreement, fulfill your agreements, a promise is in agreement, fulfill your promises. And then Allah subhanahu wa taala says, Verily, verily, the covenant will be questioned about you will be questioned about your promises. We will be questioned about the promises that we make
the next verse that was mentioned, or that a man will know we rahima who love who Tyler included, is from source and verse 91, Allah subhanho wa Taala says 104 big dilemma he either I had to and fulfill the covenant of Allah, when you have made an agreement, when you have made a covenant. So this is another area. The third area that emammal Now we included
is from Surah to the mat either in the very first verse, yeah, you have Lavina Amano, our food bill Roku, fulfill or you have believed it's an instruction or directive towards the moon towards the moon, meaning the believers, Allah subhanahu wa taala says, are you who have believed fulfill your obligations, fulfill your obligations?
And in another verse, from Surah, two soft verse, verses two and three, Allah subhanho wa Taala says yeah, au Halina, no, Lima Taku Luna, ma Latifah Luna kabu Rama Katana in de la he and Taku mela falloon again, Allah azza wa jal is addressing the believers then what mean and he says, Oh you who have believed? So one of the traits of a believer and one of the characteristics of a movement of a believer is that he fulfills his promise. He fulfills his promise. Are you who have believed Lima taco Luna, why do you say that what you do not do? Lima taco Luna meloetta falloon Why do you say that which you do not do? So it's about fulfilling what you say.
Allah subhana wa eila concludes in this area by saying Gabor mccurtain are in the law he and Hulu malata falloon, most hateful, most hateful it is hated by Allah azza wa jal Allah creator, it is most hateful with Allah that you say that which you do not do that you say that which is which you do not do and we know this as being hypocrisy, the hypocrisy hypocrisy of an action and we're going to talk about that as a member no Rahim Allah Allah He includes the hadith of hypocrisy and the traits of hypocrisy. Now,
before I delve into the Hadith that emammal No, we rahima who love with Tyler included, I want to talk about I had and your promises, okay, when it comes to your promise, we all as human beings made a promise with Allah azza wa jal, first and foremost, Allah huduma Allah, we have made a promise with Allah diligent. And you might be asking, when did we make a promise with Allah azza wa jal? I don't remember making a promise with Allah azza wa jal, Allah azza wa jal in Surah Al Ashraf of the Quran in verse 172.
He reminds us of I had,
he reminds us of an agreement of a covenant that took place between us when we were souls. When we were
when we were souls with I had that we took with Allah azza wa jal. What is that promise? What is that I had? What is that agreement that we agreed with with Allah azza wa jal
and the Muslim of Eman in the Muslim of Imam Ahmed,
Muslim, Imam Ahmed, and this is a hadith that is narrated by Eben Abbess from the Allahu anhu and this hadith has been authenticated it is found in a sincere
sencilla of the Hadith that is Sahaja authentic. The profits are alone while he was selling them he said that when Allah azza wa jal created our forefather Adam, Adam alayhis, salaam Adam made the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.
When Eliza gel created Adam, he took a covenant or an agreement agreement from him. Then he extracted from him from Adam, all of his descendants, you know, we are all the children of Adam and Eve his cell. And so he, he extracted from him, all of his descendants who would be born until the end of the world, all of those people that were going to be born, were extracted from Adam alayhis, salaam, generation after generation and he spread them out. He spread them out in front of him, in front of Allah azza wa jal, in order to take an agreement from him
or from them, and he spoke to them face to face by saying, Allah subhanahu wa taala. He said, He said to them, unless to be Rob become
less to be wrong become Am I not your Rob? Am I not your load?
And they said, Yes, kala Bella, and they replied, Yes, and we testify to it. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala, he explained why he had all of mankind, bear witness, that he was the creator and the only dietary or deity, God worthy of worship, so that they can so so that in case mankind
in case mankind should say on the Day of Judgment, surely we were unaware of all of this or we had no idea of this. So in sort of an hour of Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What is the alpha rabuka min Benny Adam, I mean, the hoodie Henrietta home
and mentioned when you load took from the children of Adam, from the loins,
the sentence was had a Humala and forcing him to be Rob be calm, and
and make them testify of themselves saying to them, Am I not your Lord? rubella? They said, they said, Yes, we have testified this court rubella shahidan portobella shahina Taku malkia Mati in Coeur
list, you should say on the day of judgment on the Day of Resurrection Yeoman piano, indeed, we were unaware of this. So we have already entered into an agreement with Allah azza wa jal admitting that he is our Rob, he is our Creator, he's our Lord, he's our God. He's the only one that deserves to be worshipped.
So therefore, that's why when people become Muslims, when non Muslims, they enter into Islam,
we say that they have reverted and not converted, because originally they were Muslims. They were Muslims. And they have
con reverted and not converted, they have reverted and not converted to Islam. So
this is why we say everybody could elude in the province. I said Lem said kulu, then you do Anil fitrah. Every newborn is born in the state of fitrah.
In the state of fitrah. So it is the parents progress lm said is about why it is the parents that that will will make him a Jew or a Christian, or a fire worshipper, or a majority. So we are all born as human beings as Muslims. And the word Islam means submission and surrender and obedience to Allah azza wa jal. That's what Islam means. Islam means surrender and submission, submitting your will to the will of Allah azza wa jal. So, the first agreement that we should be fulfilling is the agreement or I had that we have with our channel. The second I heard, the second type of promise that we should be fulfilling is I had that we have with people with mankind promises that and
agreements that we have entered into with mankind. Now, it could be an agreement with another Muslim, between a Muslim and a Muslim, or it couldn't be an agreement between a Muslim and a non Muslim a disbeliever with a
Caf here, okay, that agreement should also be fulfilled. When a Muslim has an agreement with a non Muslim, that agreement must also be honored.
In Sahih Muslim we have the situation whereby
a couple of the Sahaba a couple of us a habit of their loved one, Homer were coming to Medina.
And on the way to Medina, just as they were about to enter, they came across some mushriks, some polytheists, some disbelievers and these two Muslims
feed for their lives.
And so, the mushrik said to them, where are you going? They said, we're going to Medina. They said, Are you going to join Mohamed? Are you going to join Muhammad? And I said, No, we're going to we're going to Medina. They said, Look, we will set you free, we will not do anything to you, as long as you promise not to fight with Mohammed Salim against us. So they entered into an agreement, they entered into an agreement with these mushriks when these two Sahaba they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And I think one of them was who they forgive ngulia men.
When they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. They mentioned what happened. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, fulfill your agreement.
Fulfill your agreement. In other words, you are not to fight with me against them.
You have entered into this agreement, fulfill your agreement, and we ask Allah azza wa jal to help us against them. So he turned to Allah for victory, asking Allah xojo to aid him
when the time comes. So yes, Muslims do fulfill their agreements that they have with non Muslims, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would engage, he would engage in transactions with the Jews that were living in Medina. And we know, for example, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Once he purchased
he purchased some, some barley, some barley from a Jew, he purchased 30 saw a saw two handfuls, he purchased 30 you know, two handfuls of, of barley that he purchased on credit because he never had the money at that time to pay for the barley. And so the profits are low and he was selling them he gave us security, he gave an iron, an iron armor to the Jew, he as a mortgage, he said, you can hold on to this until I I pay what I owe you. And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam died, he hadn't paid that Jude the money that he owed for the Bali, so therefore the iron armor remains in the custody of the Jew. That was the security of money. So the purpose of the law while he was
Salamis dealing with the Jews and dealing with the people of the book that were around him.
So it's very important to remember to honor and to fulfill your promises and your agreements. Even they though they may be with a non Muslim and that you will be asked about your promises and the fulfillment of your promises on the Day of Judgment. Now, let's talk about some of the Hadith mmm no Rahim Allah who Thailand hyla included in this chapter.
The first Hadees is the hadith of Abu hurayrah the Allahu Allahu wa and it's originally found in Bukhari and Muslim. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, your total Mona Lisa laughs He said,
three other signs of a hypocrite.
There are three signs of a hypocrite, a monastic.
And then he goes on to list them. And he said either had the fact
that when he makes a when he speaks, he lies Hadeeth his speech, but when we talk about the Hadith in the context of Islam, it is the words and the actions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But the word Hadith linguistically means speech.
Hadith either had death, that when he speaks he lies Kevin. Kevin
is lying and the practitioner of Kathy era can Zeb is Elia kozub.
So he said either had difficulty with either one either, if and when he makes a promise he breaks his promise. And when he makes a promise, he breaks his promise. Well, either why they're
left with either a two minute hon. And when he betrays, when he's trusted with something, he betrays his trust, he betrays the trust.
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is
advising us or pointing out what are the signs of a monastic of a hypocrite, so that we don't become hypocrites. And in another generation, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam added to this he said, we're in salam wa Salatu was ama and no Muslim, even even if he observes sound, which is fasting,
and he performs salah and he claims to be a Muslim.
The next Hadees that a man will know we included is the hadith of Abdullah ibn amor Ebony laughs radi Allahu anhu man
that the prophets of Allah wa alayhi wa sallam said our burn out about four are bound man couldn't fee he can Muna fee upon Holly son.
For qualities, if they are found, or four traits, four traits if they are found in a person, they will make that person as she or I complete, Mona complete hypocrite.
And he said women can at Fie hustler one min one can at Fie hustler don't mean an effect. But anyone who possesses one of them, he possesses one of the characteristics of an effect. So you if you have these following four characteristics in you, you're a hypocrite, complete hypocrite. But if you have one of these traits, then you have one of the traits of nofap and therefore you are not a complete hypocrite.
Until you leave it had to die until you live off that trait.
And then he says, he mentions them either to Mina Han, when he is interested, he betrays the trust. Well either had the effect and when he speaks he lies.
Well, either I had a father, and
when he promises he acts trichur treacherously
what is the horse armor federal and when he argues, he behaves in a very imprudent or insulting manner.
very insulting manner, when he argues. So
a very serious Hadith, the hadith of Al Muna.
the US will have no effect or the what is the fundamental trait of a monastic of a hypocrite is that he conceals or he hides. So we call this an Arabic
the roadmap when they refer to this, they refer to this as a toldja, concealment or hiding, whereby you hide your evil and you show your good, or you hide your poofer and you show a man and you show that you're a believer, this is hypocrisy. This is the fact this is tolia showing something that you really are not.
this hadith outlines the the traits, the traits of a monastic. Now, during the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, there actually existed a group of munaf yeppoon, of hypocrites. And
they actually met the characteristics and the traits as outlined in these two ahaadeeth. Now, even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he didn't know
hardly knew what lay in the hearts of people. Despite the
Being a professor of law while he was selling. Now he did know some of them he didn't know who were some of them whenever you're gone.
Now, when it comes to the nofap
nifa, or hypocrisy is of two types, there is an effect of your,
as the other might have said, It relates to your faith or your belief. And the second type of effect is related to your practice to your actions. So there is an effect of belief and an effect of a man of actions.
Now, in the case of an effect of your ATM card, or your belief, which is the first case, this is where a monastic or a hypocrite conceals his this belief in his heart, but verbally professes Islam.
So, on the outside, he says, I'm Muslim, but on the inside, he doesn't believe in the tenets of Islam. He doesn't believe in our candle, a man and a man will be led or Malaika t wakatobi. He will surely he will after World War
II belief in Allah. These are the fundamental six fundamental beliefs of a Muslim belief in Allah azza wa jal, and a man who believe Amala ekati he is angels were called to be he and his scriptures was truly the prophets and messengers that were sent to mankind.
While your mill acid which is the last day of judgment, heaven Hill, Divine Decree, the sixth one to cover will cover.
We have to believe in all of these articles have faith in all of these tenets.
So anybody who does not who conceals this belief, who conceals disbelief and shows belief, he is a monastic, and he will be in the lowest part of the Hellfire in the depth of the Hellfire, which is the worst part of the hellfire. Because Allah azza wa jal in the Quran.
He says in Surah Nisa, verse 145, in Mona Tina Fidel kill is fairly mean. And now, the Mona coupon, the Mona Lisa, in the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the hellfire. And this is referring to the hypocrisy of belief, the hypocrisy of your part of your belief. Now, in the case of the knee effect of the ml of the action,
a man Yeah, I mean, he does have faith in his heart, he does have that he that he does have the man.
has a lot of these traits, so tend to see tendencies that the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam outlined when he speaks he lies. When he's interested, he, he betrays the trust. When he promises he breaks his promise.
When he argues he behaves in a very imprudent or insulting manner.
If you have all four characteristics, you're a complete hypocrite, but if you only have one of them, then you have one of the traits of nofap. So therefore,
having said this,
when it comes to
nefab a person is not necessarily 100% calf hair, or 100% believer,
he may possess the traits of the two. So a Muslim may possess traits of poofer of the people of Cofer, or this belief and may possess traits of a man.
So for example, you can have traits of hypocrisy, traits of a man traits of disability disobedience, traits of justice, traits of enmity, traits of loyalty traits of disloyalty. So there's a mixture a mixture of the two.
So therefore, the hadith of an effect, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, it teaches us that a Muslim may possess traits of a man and traits of ninja
we're going on now to the next Hadith that was mentioned here.
And that is the hadith of jabiru or the Allahu anhu. He reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Team jabeen is one of the Sahaba of the prophets of Allah while he was selling, Jabberwocky Allah one
He said that when the revenues of Bahrain will arrive, I shall give you such and such. So the problems I sent him had promised, Jabir, that when the revenues some wealth that was coming from behind
the area at that time when it comes to processor and the processor lamp promised him a share of that.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he passed away before the revenues were received. So they did receive the revenues, but by the time they received the revenues, the prophet SAW Selim had passed away he had died.
when they they arrived during the healing of Abu Bakar love the loved one who
was the halifa. And so abubaker or their loved one who he ordered to be announced, that anyone whom the Messenger of Allah saw sell and promised or owed, anything should come to him.
Booker said, if the prophet SAW Selim owes anything to anyone to come and see abubaker
Jed, there was a loved one who he went to him, and he said, messenger of Allah had said to me, such and such, so abubaker
took a double handful out of the money and gave it to me. In other words, he gave it to Jabba.
I counted it and found that it was 500. Durham's 500. Durham's.
Then Abu Bakar Robbie Allah one who said to me, said the Jabir take twice as much more of that amount. And the Hadith is found in Bukhari, and Muslim. So the point, the moral here, the moral of this hadith being included in this chapter, is that once you die, you will not plead of anything that you own. Just because you die doesn't mean you cease to owe people what is rightfully owed to them. And that's why in Islam, if you have something that you owe to others, you should not go to sleep without having written a will written it down, I owe such money, or wealth or whatever it is.
So, the fulfillment of the deceased pledge is what we learn from here. If you if somebody has pledged something, and then they have died,
then those who are responsible, the the sentence, so the sentence, those people, the family members should ensure that the promises of the deceased are fulfilled. And anything that's outstanding, should be paid back. And that's why we have a common practice and handler in our communities. And inshallah we continue to implement this, that when somebody dies from your family, you should make an announcement and say, we the family of such and such,
would like to the community to know that anybody who is owed anything by the deceased, to come and see the family members so we can fulfill the promise and the pledge of the deceased.
Because we know in Islam, even the Mujahid who dies in the battlefield is forgiving everything except for what he owes to somebody else. So it's a serious matter.
And everybody should be given back what is owed to them.
Muslim or non Muslim.
So we have a responsibility of fulfilling our pledges.
And the pledges of our fam family members that have deceased just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we know that he when he died, he had
mortgaged his iron armor to a Jew. And it's to that extent that Yanni the promises should be fulfilled. So my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, today's presentation was about fulfilling your promises,
and ensuring that we
steer away and keep away from the traits of nofap of hypocrisy that the Hadith outlined, that we keep away from the traits of an effect.
And we saw how that a person could still be a believer,
but have the traits of new facts that are related to actions. However, if a person has the
Wrong belief in Allah azza wa jal in his heart and He manifests otherwise, that this is a new fact that can take a person out of the realm of Islam, and which could actually see a person be in the lowest and the deepest part of the Hellfire as per the area in Surah Nisa heatherwood Allahu IMO sallallahu wasallam orbera Canon abena Mohammad Salam aleykum wa Taala he barakato
