De La Habra. alameen wa salatu wa he was Salam O Allah and V Hill Karim Allah He of Paulo Sala to automata, slim. Rubbish. rocklea Sabri were Sidley Emery naka de Tamil lissoni of Coco Kohli, my brothers and my sisters a set Mr. La come to LA he robot our cattle. So it is Sunday night, October the 17th 2021. And we continue our essential fifth class in sha Allah Allah where we're going through this chapter focusing on or learning a little bit more about the severity of some of the major sins that we as Muslims, or as humans
fall into when we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect and save us all. These sins, of course, are sins that harm not only ourselves but could harm the rest of society. And this is one of the reasons why it's important for us to mention them. Some might think well why are we talking about sins? How is that even fick related? Well, it is fick related. In fact, give me one second here
we go. It is fick related,
in the sense that what kind of data you know highlights or indicates to us certain punishments for those who may commit these types of sins. Now of course, there's what comes from Allah subhanho data, we are not the ones who decide Allah Subhana Allah is the one who decides, but we ask Allah Subhana which Allah for forgiveness, and for the forgiveness of those who may have committed these mistakes, or these sins.
No doubt shape on is always working on us right? shavon is always trying to get us to do things that are displeasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala that's one of the things that shape on
puts all his time and energy into in fact it is the thing that jayvon puts his time and energy into which is to get us to sway away from the path that Allah subhana wa tada is pleased with.
And so we spoke about you know, some of the some of the things last week pertaining to are related to Xena adultery as well as fornication.
Today we look at slandering another person with a false accusation of Xena so simply just saying or accusing someone of having committed Zina adultery is not allowed in our Deen we are to show respect towards one another except in the case when of course there's a need where something may be harmful to the rest of society. But remember this is slandering another person which means that we are not telling the truth about it. It is not true it's a lie. And it's false. But we are act we are we are accusing someone of it. Or the person is accusing someone of it not us right. So what is this slender or false accusation of Xena
in Arabic we call it a quarter of K which is to accuse or slander another person with the implication of Xena okay of being sexually intimate with someone that they are not married to okay that they are not married to such as saying to the person oh you fornicator right just saying saying that that in itself, okay. Or any words which are clearly understood to mean that the person is being accused of committing Zina?
What is the ruling? Well, this type of slander is one of the greater sins Okay, it's one of the greater sins one of the major sins according to Allah subhanho wa Taala. What did the person do? They simply said something about another person. That isn't even true. Okay, but they said something and as a major sin, we know the backbiting is a sin as well. But this is even worse. slendering because slender is different than backbiting in the sense that backbiting is saying something about another person that they are not happy with behind their back without their knowledge and is actually
Okay, Steiner is that isn't even true. Okay.
Give me three seconds I'm just gonna close the door.
Sorry, that was about eight seconds.
So, here we see a verse in the Quran surah to nor verse number 23 where Allah subhanho wa Taala says in malaria, your moon and more Sana to call phila till minute, Laura you know feed dunia will. 01 Omarosa nauseam. Allah subhanho wa Taala says verily those who accused chaste women
Who never even think of anything touching their chastity and our good believers are cursed as the one who accuses them. They are cursed in this life and in the Hereafter and for them will be a great torment. So it is not from our Deen and we are highly discouraged and it is a sin a grave sin according to Allah subhanho wa Taala to accuse someone of this now we might think that isn't something that comes around too often or comes about too often however it actually is. There are many times when you know I hear of people who come into my office and they tell me so and so person did this right usually their spouse
now to say that
is is serious Okay, now of course they're saying it First of all, from an angle of seeking help, they want to help in their situation, they want to help to either you know, make their marriage better, or they want to help to get out of the marriage and the relationship that they're in. But we have to be very careful of simply going about accusing someone without actually having that evidence for it okay.
You'll find that you know, in Yes, in some countries or some cultures you will find that this is very commonly mentioned about others right. Sometimes rumors within family members or among family members about another person within the family relative a cousin a distant relative, and we need to be very careful of it we should not engage in this type of conversation, we leave it to Allah subhana wa tada However, in the case when someone is coming in seeking help seeking assistance they want out of their relationship, they're not happy with this, and they see that this is happening or they they feel that this may be happening I've dealt with cases of people where you know, they
admitted you know, the other person admitted that yes, this is true, I am doing it. I've dealt with cases where the person who's being accused says no, I didn't do it. I've dealt with cases where some people think or they assume or they're getting all these signs or they're getting all these feelings that something isn't right and I've had I'm having dreams You know, people are saying I'm having dreams and again, you know, there's no actual like firm evidence of this actually taking place sometimes in the marriage and it's just like a feeling or a hunch or you know, assumptions and remember that Allah subhanho wa Taala as well as the prophets and a lot of it he was telling remind
us that the majority of what we assume is nothing but false tales it's not true. Okay. The majority of what we assume of others or think of others without having solid evidence and facts is nothing but false tales nothing but lies Okay, nothing but fabricated tales. And so we need to be very careful of this Okay, especially when accusing someone of Xena something so great, so severe, so serious.
What are the longer and narrated the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
avoid the seven destructive sins. Okay, avoid these seven sins at all costs, as in like do not, do not commit or fall into these categories of since.
They said O Messenger of Allah, what are they? He replied, some Allahu alayhi wa sallam by saying, associating partners with Allah, committing sorcery, killing a soul, which Allah has made inviolable, except due to justice. Okay. So for example, in the case of capital punishment, if capital punishment is like in the United States, in some states, we know that that, you know, could be a punishment that someone receives, and they're on death row. So, in that case, you know, it would be something that could be permitted, but again, avoid it. And of course, this is not for the general public, like we don't go about doing this. This is you know, for authorities to look into
and to take, seriously.
Consuming interest, interest. interest, think of it how many people consume interest. And when we say, when we say consumer interest, it's not just that you earn interest and you use it for your livelihood, that you pay interest as well. Okay, whether you're earning interest or paying interest, interest is interest. And Allah Subhana Allah mentions in the Quran, it says though, that person is waging war against Allah Subhana Allah and His Messenger so long it us
consuming the wealth of orphans is a major sin in our Deen consuming the wealth of orphans, an orphan child who's in your care who has been put under your, you know, your guardianship
to consume their wealth in a way now I have to say
in a way that is not permitted. So islamically it is permissible to use the wealth of the orphan on the orphan okay?
But if the person is just consuming it using it and it's not their wealth and they're taking this wealth then that is from the major sense fleeing on the day when two armies meet, as in you know, if you're part of an army and military and you're faced with the enemy and you fleet you run the other way, right when the two armies are coming forth, so this is a time when it is considered a major sin as well. And lastly slendering the chaste innocent believing women
from the major sins What are considered major sins according to our Creator Allah as legit
Okay, we move on to a layer on what is Eliane? If a man's lenders his own wife by accusing her of Xena and she denies it. Okay, then a punishment from Allah subhanho wa Taala, of course is upon Well, I shouldn't say of course, a punishment is upon him unless he can present evidence that his other witnesses, or he makes a Li earn towards her. So what is a Leon Leon is the practice described in the following verse of the Quran in, I should say, verses of the Quran verse number 678, and nine, of surah, to nor surah. And nor, in this surah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, One lady and I are known as word your home. And I'll read it in English, because it's four verses and fairly
lengthy. And for those who accuse their wives, but have no witnesses except themselves, let the testimony of one of them be four testimonies as in that person, that husband will testify against her once, twice, thrice, four times.
So let the testimony of one of them be four testimonies, as in testifies four times by Allah, that he is one of those who speak the truth.
And the fifth testimony should be the invoking of the curse of Allah on him.
Right. So when the fifth testimony is made, that testimony is saying that what law he What I'm saying is true. And she did this, the fifth time that he says that is, is
it still stating basically, that if I'm lying, then the punishment of Allah is, is upon me. Okay.
So I'll say that last part again, if the fifth testimony should be the invoking of the curse of law on him, if he be if he be of those who tell a lie against her,
but it shall avert
the punishment from her, right, any sort of legal punishment upon her, if she bears witness four times by Allah, that he or her husband is telling a lie.
So basically islamically right, if there was an Islamic court or Shetty out or judge, you know, system, and the judge was now faced with these two people, if he comes and testifies four times, and then the fifth time, stating, you know what, this fifth time means that if I'm lying, then Allah will take care of me.
And what I mean by take care is if I'm lying, then Allah will punish that person right? Now, if she comes forth and testifies four times, that by a law, her husband is the one that is telling a lie, then there's no like legal, Islamic legal action that is taken against her. And the fifth time is her testimony before a law, that should she be lying, then the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala, in the hereafter will be upon her.
Right? So basically, each of them is clearing themselves.
And so Allah Subhana, Allah says, and the fifth testimony should be that the punishment of Allah be upon her if her husband speaks the truth.
Now even our bus or the Oleg are narrated. Now remember what we just finished mentioning his four Ayat of the Quran, four verses of the Quran, verse number 678, and nine of Surah anouar in our best sort of deal
Mohamed narrate is that the prophets on a long narrated
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
sorry Hold on.
Yeah, that Hillel even omiya accused his wife of committing adultery with Shetty even set him up. And he complained to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam about this. So it Ambassador De La Hoya and Homer narrates that this complaint from Hillel came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
that he loved Hillel, even Maya accused his wife of committing adultery with Shetty. kibin Santa. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him present the evidence, or you shall be punished for your accusation. Right? The profits are longer and even someone would take legal action, you know? Or like, yeah, legal action against him.
Because you're accusing someone of something. So what does he say present your evidence? He replies to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and says on messenger of Allah.
If someone sees his wife with another men, will he go and try to bring witnesses? Right? So he's like, out of sort of luck. If If a man husband sees his wife with another woman, is he gonna, like turn around, walk away, go and get some other men to come and see his wife in that situation? Right? So like, he's asking the Prophet sallallahu earlier, someone like, you know, I don't think any man would go and do that would go and get witnesses. So he says, a messenger of Allah, if anybody sees his wife with another men, where he goes and tried to bring witnesses, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continues to say, present the evidence, as otherwise you shall receive a punishment, as in
you will be held to account for this accusation that you're making.
He then said, by the one who sent you with the truth, so he's taking an oath by a lie, he says, By the one who sent you with the truth, I am being truthful. And Allah will reveal that which will make my back free of any punishment, right? Allah will reveal something that will free me of any sort of legal action taken against me any sort of punishment.
Then gibreel alayhis salam came down and revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And for those who accuse their wives that have no witnesses, except themselves,
the verses that we just finished reading and sought to know what verse number 6789
and the fifth testimony should be that the Wrath of Allah be upon her if he speaks the truth.
Right? So, now, Allah Subhana, Allah reveals these verses to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam in that case, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after receiving this revelation from gibreel, alayhis salaam. He reveals this or reads recites these verses until the end of them verse number 678, and nine, and then left and sent for the woman, right, so he left and he asked for the wife of Hillel to come forth.
Hillel came and bore witness the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them, Allah knows that one of you is a liar. Would any of you to like to repent? Then the woman stood to make her claim? When it came to the fifth oath, the people stopped her and said, this oath will definitely bring Allah's punishment on you if you are guilty. Right so in the Hereafter, the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala will be upon you if you're guilty. So before you speak, the people are basically telling her before you speak, make sure that you know that you are now about to say something that if you're lying, the punishment of Allah will be upon you. It had been our bus are the Allahumma noted. She
hesitated and recoiled until we thought that she would withdraw. She hesitated and she refused. She basically was like, you know, she was not going to bear witness and take an oath by Allah subhana wa Tada. Then she said, I will not disgrace my people for the remainder of the days. As in until I'm alive, I will not disgrace my people and she
continued with the fifth oaks the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then said to those around him, watch her
if she gives birth to a black eyed child, right a child with dark eyes
with large hips and you know big shins, then it is that of Shetty, even sitemap. So he's basically
explaining or describing I should say he's describing characteristics of the men who is said to have been with her in an intimate way out of marriage.
Later, she gave birth to such a child, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then said, if it were not for what has transpired from the book of Allah, I would certainly have dealt with her as in we would have taken legal action upon her but she cleared herself of that, and she cleared herself of that, and she left this, you know, to be dealt with between her and Allah Subhana What's her head?
May Allah Subhana Allah protect us all and keep us all safe?
So the effects of a Leon if Eliane occurs between two spouses,
the following rulings then result so these things are to apply. What is a layer and again, just to remind everyone, a Leon is when a husband accuses his wife, or basically one spouse is accusing the other, of being intimate with someone else outside of their marriage. Okay, but then, that each of them takes an oath, by a law five oaths, that they are telling the truth. And that is done by both parties, right? Each one of them is taking five oath that Biola we're taking we're telling the truth, and so it's left between Allah Subhana Allah to be the judge. Okay, now what happens to these two people do we just let them go about their life? Well earlier and that occurs between two
spouses. These following things take place according to the deen of Allah subhana wa, tada, first of all, the two people are to be separated, as in not just separated, they don't live together, but they're still married. Their marriage is basically void. It's it's over, right? They've both accused, they've both taken an oath and both basically accusing each other. Whoever is telling the truth, one of the two of them is lying. Okay, one of the two of them is lying.
So they're to be separated in our mode. Even our model de Allahumma said, the profit carried out the layer earn between a man and a woman from the unsought and he separated them. As in he conducted or witnessed a layer in between a husband and wife and once they both took these five oaths against each other, he had them separated they're no longer married to each other.
So here's separation does not mean divorce.
Or it doesn't mean I should say separation like we know it to be two people still married, but living separately, no, later on, if it takes place and five old sir taken from each party, each spouse then they are separated and their marriage is null and void. Again, the Hadees of immunobiological unformat where he says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam witnessed and carried out the near end between a man and woman from the unsought and he separated them.
And that Hadith is authentic in Bukhari and Muslim.
Secondly, when a layer and takes place, the two are forever forbidden to marry each other again, so they can never re marry one another.
Okay, they can never re marry one another.
So I live in sad said concerning the two who make a Leon the Sunnah has been that the two are separated and may never be reunited. So they are to be separated and never reunited with each other. Okay. That's what happens. When Aliyah and takes place. They're separated as we mentioned, the first thing secondly, is that they are never to marry one another once again.
Thirdly, the woman of the Leon is still entitled to her mouth. So the woman who was accused is still entitled to her mouth husband might say, Well, hey, wait a second. How is this even fair? Like I have to give her mouth and he's accusing her of something and you still have to give them out? Well,
let's see. What are some Nestle's uh, you narrated from sorry, didn't job Ah, who said? I said in Arma.
The law no matter what happens if a man's lenders his wife, he said the profits on a one while he was seldom separated to the two,
or sorry separated two from the tribe of a marriage learn. He told them, Allah knows that one of you is a liar. Would any of you to like to repent? The first time he's asking them, Allah knows that one of you is a liar? Would any of the two of you like to repent?
They both refused. He then said, Allah knows that one of you is a liar. Would any of you to like to repent? They both refused again. Finally, he said, Allah knows that one of you is a liar. Would any of you to like to repent?
They both refused again. And he separated between them as then he
rendered their very their marriage void.
A you that further said, I'm not even de nada said to me, there is something in that Hadith that I do not find you narrating. Right. So I'm having dinner mentioned something to him. And he's coming and checking up on this Hadeeth with a normal.
So, even normal, the Allahumma said
the men said
sorry, the men says to even arm out of the alarma What about my wealth?
As in the What about my wealth, the more What do I have to do with it? And so he was told there is no wealth for you.
If you are speaking the truth
you had consummated the marriage with her.
If you are lying
you more so do not deserve it.
So he tells this men that if one is going to accuse their spouse of Eliane right. And then
it will and he's doing this after he consummated his marriage. The reason why he mentioned you consummated the marriage is because the moho is owed to her if the marriage or once the marriage is consummated, right? So it's given to her, when of course the the marriage takes place and decaf takes place, you can exchange them out.
But if the marriage ends before, even
if the marriage ends before consummating the marriage, than the mother is to be returned, if they end up consummating the marriage, then the mahoto is hers. islamically and it must be given to her, right? Even if they get divorced afterwards, then the mahad is still hurts.
And he says and if you're lying, so if you're lying about her, in this case of a lesbian, you're slandering her and accusing her of doing something hot on
and it's not true, then you don't deserve your mouth anyways, right? The model that you gave to her, it's not yours anyways. So the third thing is, so the first two are that the two are to be separated, and that the two are forever forbidden for each other in marriage that they cannot remarry again, the third thing is that the Maha is to be left with the woman who is accused of a Leon. The fourth thing is that the child will be attributed to the mother only in the case of Aliyah and the mother is attributed to the story the child is attributed to the mother only in the case of earlier, so the father is technically not considered the father of that child. If the father is
accusing of that. Okay.
It'd be normal to log on him. I said, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
conducted the liren between a man and his wife.
So he witnessed the Leon between a man and his wife, he denied it was his child. He separated the two and joined the child to the mother, so that the husband, who accused his wife of later on,
was separated from his wife and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam attributed the child to the mother only, as in you have the right to keep this child the child is yours. Now we're not referring to children that were born prior to this. Okay, we're not referring to the children that they may already have. we're referring to any child
That may be born from that wife in the case of the accusation of a Leon, okay and the fifth and final thing is that the woman involved in the Leon and her child will still continue to inherit from one another. That is the mother passes away the child inherits if the child passes away then the mother inherits, okay. Even she had stated concerning the Hadeeth of solid inside which we mentioned above or earlier, the Sunnah was that after the two parties were separated and she was pregnant or she you know, was found or was pregnant, the child would be attributed to her and called by her name
right the child would be called by her name. So the child Daughter of so and so or son of so and so the mother's name
he also said the Sunnah is that the child would also inherit from her and she would inherit from him or from her the child according to the shares that Allah has already determined.
So that's all that we will take for today In short, a lot of tailor with regards to this topic, we'll open it up for some questions.
We still have a few minutes before then for Asia
Canada to help us all and protect us all I mean, so I'll go through Instagram here I saw a few questions come in earlier. Just scroll up and
if anyone has any questions, feel free to type them in and Sean like
set your entire
Okay, someone's asking the does this still apply if the husband asks or suspect his wife to be cheating? Even if he only did
his wife? As in he's only accusing his wife so does this still apply if the husband asks or suspects his wife cheating? I'm not really sure I understand your question. So hansy if you can maybe type that out
differently asks his wife this will apply if the husband asks
now you're saying only if he asks his wife so you've typed like four things out if you could put it all together in one question. That might help them Shama okay.
Even if he only did his wife I mean, okay, I don't really understand that so if you could reword it, that'd be great.
Hearing but Sarah Marie come ericom sobre la from Australia law o'clock I wonder what city you're in and Australia last minute Allah protect all of you from COVID-19 and make things much much easier for you and allow you to enjoy going to the massage it and being together with family and friends. I mean
so Xi'an Mashallah, Tamara kalaam robotic robotic It's nice to see you on here as I am for point number two does that mean there is no added period because they cannot get back together
have to look into the data from what I remember there's no data
from what I remember there's no done but let me just double check that in sha Allah okay from what I can remember there is no way for them because the marriage is done null and void and they basically would not go back together and
just have to double check that inshallah.
So they have a hula is one month, but this is different. Okay.
So let me check that in Shama.
Basically, it is still considered slendering if he asks his wife if she's cheating.
I know that we would think in our minds that asking a question, a person is basically assuming already, but
we shouldn't assume that there's an accusation in the question. So if a person is saying, you know, are you cheating
Right, they may not have any evidence, and they may not be accusing, and they're simply asking so we cannot say that the person is accusing. However, it doesn't sit right when a spouse asks that question, okay, doesn't sit right when a when a spouse asked their spouse that question, right? So it shouldn't be something like
that is just randomly mentioned, you know, I don't want people to get off the live stream and then go to their spouse and be like, Are you cheating on me? No, we shouldn't do that we should think good of one another. Remember, it's a sin. grave sin, according to Allah subhanho wa, taala. to accuse were to think that way about a woman who is chest who's protecting herself looking after herself, preserving herself for the sake of Allah, not for another human being, not for men. And the same for the men towards his wife, right is protecting himself, preserving his, you know, his morality and looking after himself for the sake of pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala had. So we
shouldn't simply think that this is something we can go around asking. It's not something that we should open up regularly. This is a discussion that we're having in a topic that we covered because of our Dean mentioning it. And it is something that does come up in the society that we live in as much as we want to pretend like it doesn't exist, it does exist, does exist. And we do know cases of people who have admitted to their spouses that they've done this, okay, I know of cases of people who have admitted openly to their spouse that they did do this. Okay. And whatever they decide to do afterwards, that's a different story. Okay, that's not we're not here to discuss that just showing
you telling you explaining to all of us that these things do happen, especially in the societies that we're living in nowadays, we need to be very careful to protect ourselves. Okay.
So question for, for marriage to be void, do both parties have to take the oaths or only from the male side? Just a colossal failure, no matter how long you come? Are you very quick, I mean, we come a lazy caliphate. So for the marriage to be void, do both parties have to take the oath or only from the male side? So Leon, we're basically going to ask both sides.
Okay, so the person who comes forth, and might accuse, okay, so the person might come forth and accuse
whichever side it is.
And let's just say the husband accuses the wife.
Now, the wife, if she's innocent, do you think she's going to claim that she's guilty?
No, she's going to say that she's innocent.
if she's guilty, she may admit
to it, and then of course, you know, the legal
laws of the deen of Allah subhanho data would take place, right. But of course, that's within the realm of wherever there is a Islamic judiciary system. So you usually will not find the case of one party admitting and the other not.
It will either be like I mentioned that one party will accuse the other and take an oath, five times.
And then the other party, the accused will either admit to the guilt
or they will not. So in both cases, either. If the accused
doesn't admit and takes an oath, the marriage is void.
And if they do admit to it, and they're guilty, then the marriage is void. So either way, technically, the marriage is void. Okay, technically.
Now, last panaway data, protect us all and help us all. I mean, okay, so let me read through this. inshallah. I know there are certain reasons to lie, it's just come to my mind to ask if you're speaking to a non Muslim and then seek forgiveness from Allah. Do you still need to tell your partner you've sinned?
I know that in certain areas
so hence, I'm going to ask you to clarify one thing for me in this question. When you say the person is speaking to a non Muslim,
it does that mean like, a person is not married, speaking to a non Muslim person that they're interested in getting married to? Or does it mean a person who is married, speaking to someone they're not married to was not my home to them?
And then seek forgiveness from Allah Subhana which then cut off that relationship and stop it? Do they still need to let their partner know? And when you say speaking, I'm assuming that this this question means speaking, like talking, okay? Or conversing.
So a person basically behind their back so I'm assuming that what you mean by this question, what you're married speaking to an on my home, okay. So a married person who is speaking to another person, that is not my home for them. Now, first off, what we say is stop that, right, your speak to them stop that. No more conversations with them, stop speaking to them. Okay.
In addition to that, whatever happened happened to between you and Allah or that person, I should say, and a loss penalties Allah, the question is, is written we always ask questions in a, you know, in a way that doesn't reveal anyone's identity. And we don't assume that it's anyone's identity, right? So in a case like this, we would say that, first of all, stop it. Second of all, what happened between that person and another person, leave that between a loss of hanaway to Allah and yourself, and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for forgiveness and never go back to it, right? Remember, we tried to conceal our sins, but we tried to also stop them from happening, okay? And we need to
protect our integrity. And there are times when people slip up times when people make mistakes times when people do things they shouldn't do. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness, and we stop it, as soon as we recognize that and it is a level of honor and respect that is given to the person by Allah Subhana Allah for cutting that off, for being brave enough to stop doing that, and leaving that action or whatever is going on for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. And so
remember, the IDs of the people who are under the shade on the Day of Judgment are all drawn to him or Atienza, two months we've been more general in for color in an awful lot. These people that were about a man and a woman that are not held out for each other, we're about to commit an indecent act that we consider a statically indecent and and how long between the two of them, but for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala they walked away, does that mean that you know, like, they were obviously conversing with one another, they obviously were having some sort of, you know, communication between them, but then they realize this is how long and they walked away, Allah subhanaw taala
elevates them in status, right, but they were doing something wrong. And for the sake of Allah, they stopped it. So as long as nothing more happened, you know, they keep that between them and Allah subhana wa to Allah. And even if something did happen between the two of them, they don't necessarily have to come forth and tell anyone else. You seek forgiveness from Allah Subhana Allah and repent and never go back to it. And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, you know, will will take care of things and if the two people are sincerely genuinely repenting and seeking Allah subhana wa tada his help and assistance, then
a lot we know and we trust that Allah will look after them as best as possible and take care of, you know, their, their, their integrity, and you know, protect them as well from this coming out and being known by others or to others, because of their sincerity before Allah subhana wa Tada. So I see a few questions here. If it's something that
if there's something that threatens your safety or peace, would it be how long to consult with the authorities know why
something threatens your safety or peace, we should get help from the authorities. Right? We don't just let Allah subhanho wa Taala. Deal with it. Right? Allah subhanho wa Taala we trust him in taking care of things
in addition to that,
We then go and seek help from those who can help us here and now. Okay?
So there's a question that came in, that's a little bit too long. And if I click on it, it's going to show up on the screen. And I'm not sure if the person who typed it wants me to show it on the screen, so I'm not going to do that. But it basically says, What does Islam say when people falsely accuse you of something you have not committed?
Okay, so, of course, that's a sin, and the people who accuse will be dealt with, right? Allah subhana wa adad it, leave it up to him, leave it to Allah Subhana Allah to take care of, and you know, again, continue on, you have your integrity, if someone is accusing you of something you did not commit. Allah subhana wa, tada will take justice, he is the most just of rulers, right.
Xi'an has one last question, even though it's like the 14th question he's asked me today.
If one of the party admits of this sin, and they go through the oaths, the spouse does not have the choice to forgive.
If one of the party admits of this sin, so the person admits to it, spouse does not have the choice to forgive.
So it's technically if it's legally done, like, for example, if it happened at the time of the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam, in front of him some longer any asylum or if in like, a country that has an Islamic judiciary system, the judge would not just let a person go like it's considered a crime, right? It's considered something that is in an indecent act, and has happened. And so the judge has a responsibility as a judge to now you know, apply some legal sort of procedure or ruling, right, some sort of legal element needs to take place here.
So it's not really left up to the spouse to spouse could forgive them of it.
But now that it's come to the judge, the judge has to make a decision on it. Right? And then Allah Subhana, Allah is the judge of all judges. And so he will decide on that as well. But can the person forgive? Yes, the person can forgive, right? The person can forgive. And when we look at the example of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam and the incident of if right the accusations against a shout out the Allahu Allah,
and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after some time came to her and said, Look, if you did this, like then just seek forgiveness and repent to Allah subhana wa Tada. And if you didn't, and I shudder, the longer and I was like, What? So you actually think I did that? By saying by saying, if you did this, then there's an element of like, doubt in you, that you think that I would have done this. And so she immediately was like, No, I'm not I am not even going to proceed any further because she was so hurt that the prophet SAW laguerta you as someone was saying that to her, I think of this, they were husband and wife. These are things that like we don't usually, you know, talk
about Prophet sallallahu it was someone was saying, like, Look, if you actually did something with this man, then seek forgiveness and repentance from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So what he was saying there, what we learned from it as well is, not only was he you know, he hurt her feelings in this and made her feel as though he didn't trust her. But we also see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was willing to forgive her, and to continue to live with her to be with her. Right? Because he was just saying, like, let's just get past this now. Like, repent to Allah subhana wa Tada. It's like, whoa, whoa, so you think I did this? And she said, My Lord, you know Allah Subhana Allah will
clear this and then Allah Subhana Allah revealed those as in Surah a Nora as well continue read the whole surah and you'll see something really interesting there. You know, she basically was proven innocent by Allah subhana wa once had.
And so she stood her grounds, right, about the Allaha.
So someone's asking what if you committed those haram sins?
And then you are trying to stop and stop? Allah potentially still reward you?
If you stop,
like don't go and commit the sin and then say, Oh, I committed the sin for the sake of stopping No, stop right?
Now all right, tell the person stop right now. For the sake of Allah for no other reason other than the fact that you want to be under the shade. You want to be protected by Allah subhanho wa Taala for the sake of Allah stop right now and don't go back to it right? And then leave it to Allah subhanho wa Taala
most of my data and make it easy for everyone. I mean

yeah no so NZ I did not say that if a person cheats then the marriage is void. Okay, remember it's if this comes out and accusations are made in the court in the standard judiciary system, that's a different story. Okay, but we don't have that here. And you know we encourage that. You know people are strong in their Deen and this is why it's important for every single one of us to get stronger and stronger in our Deen and to increase our Eamon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Mrs. Li Maria xid lam calls. Eamon goes up and comes down. So it's important for us to Zid females always increase in our email always have more and more and more and more even tried to increase that email

And to allow us to be from amongst those that enter into the highest levels of Paradise and mean barakallahu li Khan, or sunlight or Santa Monica can intervene on a Saturday or Sunday in Santa Maria Kumara de la he ordered our cattle
