Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah the sisters a salaam aleikum, wa rahmatullah wa barakato. And welcome to the 70 major sins class based on kuttabul kabaya. of him Eman, verbi. So just to finish off from last time

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

this is really about, just emphasize that when we commit a sin, that involves taking away somebody else's rights. Okay. So remember, last time we were taught when we were talking about lymphoma, we were saying, well, when you when somebody back bites, or spreads tales about somebody or slander somebody, then

00:00:52--> 00:01:21

they basically done something against that person's honor, right, or they've harmed that person in some way that they've done volume, injustice towards that person, what oppression. So it would just be enough for them to ask Allah to forgive them. You know, generally speaking, they would also be required to be forgiven by the person who they harmed, or to compensate them in some way.

00:01:23--> 00:01:33

So this hadith again, emphasizes that, that when the day of judgment comes, Allah will gather all creatures in a single plane on a single

00:01:34--> 00:01:46

piece of land, we could say, so that the announcer will be able to make them all hear his voice, and the watcher will be able to see all of them, then

00:01:47--> 00:01:52

he will call them in a voice that will be heard from afar, just as it is heard from nearby.

00:01:53--> 00:02:18

I am the sovereign, I am the judge, none of the people of hell shall enter hell, if they have any right do from any of the people of Paradise until the score is settled. And none of the people of Paradise shall enter Paradise. if they have any right do from any of the people of hell, until the score is settled.

00:02:19--> 00:02:21

It really shows you doesn't that how seriously

00:02:23--> 00:02:26

people's rights are between each other right.

00:02:29--> 00:02:31

And another Hadeeth that talks about

00:02:34--> 00:02:36

a bridge called Condor

00:02:37--> 00:03:18

narrated from upside when the people of Paradise cross a Sirat and stand on a bridge between paradise and hell, they will settle their schools with one another. And when they are cleansed, and purified permission will be given to them to enter Paradise. So there's the big bridge, you know, set up, some people will go over it very fast, some people will crawl, some people will fall from it. Or, you know, that's the big syrup. But then after that, imagine you're a person who's actually crossed it means you're

00:03:19--> 00:03:23

a person of Jana, Yanni, right, because

00:03:24--> 00:03:27

there will be people who fall off it from what I remember.

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

And people who will not be able to cross it.

00:03:32--> 00:03:39

Those people who've crossed here means that they're good people right? Now, neither the people of Jenna generally speaking.

00:03:40--> 00:03:45

But even after they've crossed that big bridge, there's a smaller bridge.

00:03:47--> 00:03:56

Well, there's another bridge, I should say. And between paradise and hell, and that bridge is the one that can cause people who were,

00:03:57--> 00:04:04

you know, generally speaking good people were believers, etc, to then be

00:04:06--> 00:04:09

sent to hellfire. Why? Because

00:04:10--> 00:04:12

people will come to them and say, Well, you did this against me.

00:04:14--> 00:04:17

And you harmed me. And you did that.

00:04:18--> 00:04:50

And they will take they will have to give them of their good deeds. Because on the Day of Judgment, the only currency is deeds Subhanallah right. The only currency is deeds and cents. So once the once you once a person's good deeds are spent, because they're giving them in compensation to these people who've come to claim that they back bit them or they harmed them or they stole from them or they did this or they did that.

00:04:51--> 00:04:52

After all of that.

00:04:53--> 00:04:57

If a person runs out of good deeds, what will happen

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

They'll have to take the bad deeds of the person who they can't

00:05:06--> 00:05:07

handle

00:05:09--> 00:05:11

until they might become a person of hellfire.

00:05:13--> 00:05:48

Maybe not forever, you know, if they're, if it's a believer, of course, it's not going to be forever. But still. So panela there's something really scary. I'm sure you'll all agree, right? Because it's easy. We spend a lot of time doing good deeds, generally speaking. But how much attention do we pay to the things we do that might be destroying our good deeds, or that on the Day of Judgment might Hamas is really something to think about. And that's why, you know, the scholars always say,

00:05:50--> 00:06:01

bring yourself to account before you are brought to account. I think it's a saying of Omar but in fact, you know, bring yourself to account before you're brought to account.

00:06:02--> 00:06:10

If you don't bring yourself to account in this life, if you don't do your stuff for you don't ask Allah to forgive you, you don't

00:06:11--> 00:06:20

correct the wrongs that you've done. Or at least try to, or at least try to compensate the people you've harmed in any way you can,

00:06:22--> 00:06:23

you know,

00:06:24--> 00:06:31

then you will be brought to account, it just won't be in this world, maybe it'll be in the next world.

00:06:33--> 00:06:45

So don't wait for that. You know, in fact, that's why you know, the Sahaba and the seller, they used to find it reassuring, or they would consider it a good sign if they became ill.

00:06:46--> 00:06:56

Right, especially towards the end of their lives. When a person became ill, and suffered to a certain extent in this life,

00:06:57--> 00:07:01

they would feel a loss of power that is wiping away our sense

00:07:02--> 00:07:19

here in this life, because what they didn't want is that they'll be let off scot free in this life, but then all the punishment, all the compensation, all the accounting will be done of them in the next life.

00:07:20--> 00:07:23

This is how they used to think so panela.

00:07:27--> 00:07:43

And this is why this hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that whoever has wronged his brother with regard his honor, or anything else, let him seek His forgiveness today, before there will be no dinar and no deal.

00:07:44--> 00:07:47

And if he has any good deeds, to his credit,

00:07:48--> 00:07:50

they will be taken from him in a manner

00:07:52--> 00:08:01

commensurate with the wrong he did. And if he has no good deeds, and some of his counterparts, bad deeds, will be taken and added to his burden.

00:08:03--> 00:08:04

panel

00:08:06--> 00:08:06

right.

00:08:08--> 00:08:13

seek forgiveness today. And you know, seeking forgiveness, it takes a level of humility.

00:08:15--> 00:08:18

We should never be afraid to seek people's forgiveness.

00:08:19--> 00:08:22

And I'm sorry, I'm sorry for hurting you. I'm sorry.

00:08:24--> 00:08:41

If I came across, rude, you know, I'm sorry for not keeping that appointment. I'm sorry for taking that thing and not giving it back to you. Whatever it is, you know, even worse, it could be worse things and that

00:08:42--> 00:09:11

say sorry, say you're sorry is now you know, in this life, don't let there be anyone on earth who has anything against you. Of course, there's some people that you might not be able to help having something against you, right? You might not have done anything wrong to them. But at least from your side, make sure your slate is clean. Right? Make sure you've done all your due diligence in terms of seeking forgiveness in terms of compensating people, etc etc.

00:09:14--> 00:09:20

Okay, so major sin number 44 is a LAN which means the person who curses

00:09:21--> 00:09:22

a lot

00:09:27--> 00:09:37

of almost old reported the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, cursing a believer is like, killing him. Now when we say curse here,

00:09:39--> 00:09:47

of course, swearing like saying bad words. That's not a good thing either. But this particular

00:09:49--> 00:09:53

word, Lana, it's not just swearing, it's basically

00:09:56--> 00:09:58

uttering words of damnation right?

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

So for example, cursing something, you know, may Allah curse such and such, damn such and such. I don't know what other phrases people use for these kinds of things. But, you know, that sort of thing, right?

00:10:18--> 00:10:25

And Abu Dhabi reported that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, verily, when a servant curses something,

00:10:27--> 00:10:29

the curse rises to the heaven.

00:10:31--> 00:10:52

So when you utter these words, they rise to the heaven and the gates of heaven close upon it, it turns right and left. And if it does not find a place to go, it will return to that which was cursed. So it will go up, right, go right or left and then come down to the person or the

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

Yeah, the person who

00:10:55--> 00:10:56

was cursed.

00:10:58--> 00:11:01

Only if it deserves to be cursed, it will

00:11:02--> 00:11:09

affect that person, otherwise, the curse will return upon the one who made it. So Pamela shows you be careful.

00:11:10--> 00:11:14

All of this is really telling us to be careful with our towns right?

00:11:15--> 00:11:24

and Robin Hussain reported we were with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during one of his journeys. And a woman from the unserer was on a camel.

00:11:26--> 00:11:34

So this woman, she started she got angry with the cattle for some reason. Maybe it wasn't listening to her. And then she started to curse it.

00:11:36--> 00:11:42

When the Prophet heard that he said, unload the candle and set it free for it has been cursed.

00:11:44--> 00:11:48

See, it shows you that these types of statements they can have an effect.

00:11:50--> 00:12:39

Right, they can have an effect on that thing that you're sending Lana, because you're basically asking for Allah's mercy to be removed from that thing. That's what Lana means. Right, asking. So here, I explained it here. cursing is essentially invoking that Allah's mercy abandon a person or thing. That's the worst thing right? Allah's mercy abandoning something, you know, it's out of Allah's mercy that he kills us sort of Allah's mercy that we're not harmed. It's out of Allah's mercy that he sends angels to protect us from certain things, right? You don't know when you walked out today. If you know, Allah Subhana, Allah had not had an angel with you, that was preventing you

00:12:39--> 00:12:46

from being harmed from a car crash, for example, or from something you know,

00:12:47--> 00:12:48

you don't know.

00:12:49--> 00:13:02

Because Allah Subhana Allah protects us in different ways. But if you curse something, or someone is basically you're saying you're making a dua that Allah removes his mercy from that thing, or person

00:13:03--> 00:13:08

is Pamela. So you know, words matter, be careful. That's the first thing to note.

00:13:09--> 00:13:19

cursing a believer is forbidden by consensus. Okay, it's not allowed for a believer to cast a non believer

00:13:20--> 00:13:23

for a Muslim to cast another Muslim Not at all.

00:13:25--> 00:13:32

As Ali said, that cursing a person specifically cursed by name in the Quran is allowed.

00:13:33--> 00:13:35

Okay, so

00:13:38--> 00:13:42

if there's somebody who's specifically named in the Quran, like for example, for

00:13:43--> 00:13:44

Abu lahab

00:13:45--> 00:13:49

who else by name who's actually cursed in the Quran?

00:13:51--> 00:13:51

Then,

00:13:53--> 00:13:57

or sorry, not not necessarily just my name, but that is known that it was about them, right?

00:14:00--> 00:14:02

People like Abuja, for example. Right?

00:14:05--> 00:14:12

Then it could, it would be allowed to say, you know, my luck has I would like us. Okay.

00:14:14--> 00:14:22

Even so, I would say, why, why do you need to do that? You know what I mean? Like, like, what will you get out of it? I don't know.

00:14:26--> 00:14:31

But he's basically saying that that would not be a problem because they're already specifically cursed in the Quran.

00:14:33--> 00:14:37

And cursing a general category, cursed in the Quran and Sunnah

00:14:38--> 00:14:45

is also permitted. So, for example, may Allah curse the oppresses. Yeah.

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

Actually, that is something that you might want to say, right? When you see our brothers and sisters being oppressed across the world, right? You know, a person might say, you know, look us the Mullah punished.

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

them, right?

00:15:02--> 00:15:03

Or May Allah

00:15:04--> 00:15:07

remove this oppression from our brothers and sisters

00:15:09--> 00:15:18

or so a general category that the oppressors or, you know, the disbelievers is a general category.

00:15:19--> 00:15:20

But

00:15:23--> 00:15:25

specifically

00:15:26--> 00:15:32

by name, or a specific person, that's not something that we should do.

00:15:33--> 00:15:42

And I would say as a, as a norm, we shouldn't do that, whether it's a Muslim or non Muslim. You know, why why are you cursing that person?

00:15:43--> 00:15:45

Make the offer them make the offer them.

00:15:46--> 00:16:05

I remember some brothers and sisters were, you know, when people get heated, especially when they're talking about atheists, Richard Dawkins, and I don't know who else and even, you know, specific people who have harmed Muslims. Okay.

00:16:06--> 00:16:09

I know, it's very tempting to say something against them, right?

00:16:10--> 00:16:11

But I will say,

00:16:13--> 00:16:18

why not make the off of them? Why not ask Allah to guide them?

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

You know.

00:16:24--> 00:16:29

So generally speaking, it's not a good thing to do. First, to a specific person.

00:16:32--> 00:16:51

Praying for evil to befall someone is like cursing them. Right? So you want a person might not say Lana to Allah, on so unsettling about Allah coastside. But they might wish something bad for them, you know, May Allah not heal you. such terrible things to say, but you know,

00:16:52--> 00:17:03

if a person does, must close to cursing, because you're basically wishing ill, right in order, we call it but da, right, you're giving a negative,

00:17:04--> 00:17:04

right?

00:17:06--> 00:17:11

for that person or against that person. And that's also something that's not right, shouldn't do.

00:17:14--> 00:17:18

And especially, I would say, Be very careful what you say to your children.

00:17:19--> 00:17:30

You know, sometimes or your loved ones, especially, but especially your children, because the diet of the mother and the daughter of the father for their child, his aunt is accepted.

00:17:31--> 00:17:36

So a mother or a father out of anger, they might say something against their child,

00:17:38--> 00:17:41

you know, and then that thing might happen might come true.

00:17:42--> 00:17:48

And guess who will suffer the most? If that thing comes true? Of course, the parents will suffer.

00:17:50--> 00:17:55

You know, if you wish ill if you have ill wishes, or ill daughters, for your children.

00:17:57--> 00:18:03

You're the one who's going to suffer if that ill or that evil thing befalls your child.

00:18:04--> 00:18:31

Right? So be careful, a Muslim, is not allowed to lose control when when he or she is angry. You can't lose control, you have to have standards. In fact, I would say each of us should take a bit of time to think to ourselves, what is my standard? You know, what is the what's going to be the norm in our house? Is profanity going to be okay in our house?

00:18:33--> 00:18:46

When I get angry, what happens? What do I tend to say when I'm angry? And what should my limits be? And all of us need to set limits to our on ourselves, you know?

00:18:47--> 00:18:59

Because otherwise, if you don't set limits on yourself, what can happen is sometimes you'll come across, or you'll come face to face with somebody who doesn't have limits.

00:19:01--> 00:19:16

And they will insult you or they will say something to you. You know, that's really extreme, really terrible, disgusting, horrible. And because you never set limits on yourself, you will lower yourself to their standard.

00:19:18--> 00:19:39

Right, as they say, Get you'll get down in the mud with them. Right? But if you're somebody who's who has decided, No, I am not. I am not a person who swears. I am not a person. I don't care if somebody insults my mother or insult you know, insult something dear to me, I would never do that to them. Because that's just not right. And that's not me.

00:19:40--> 00:19:52

Right? That's not becoming of a believer. It's not that's below my standards. If you set that for yourself, then when those types of situations face you,

00:19:53--> 00:20:00

you won't fall to their level and afterwards, you'll feel you'll feel good about

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

And you won't lose control. And so you won't risk oppressing them is better to be a person who's oppressed than to be the person that presses right.

00:20:16--> 00:20:35

Now, there are some very harmless expressions like in Arabic that the Sahaba used to say, even you can sometimes hear in her deeds, you know, Woe to you. When you look way hack, I forgotten the difference between way look and way hack, there is a difference. My teacher told me the other day and I've just forgotten it, but

00:20:36--> 00:20:50

there's a difference. But still those types of expressions, you know, man, may your mother weep over you, you know, that's another one that you hear in their heads. They're not meant literally, okay? They're just expressions.

00:20:55--> 00:21:15

Just thought like, even in English, there are some expressions like that. For example, you know, when people say, Okay, this is a very British thing. Yeah, if people say cor Blimey, right. Cor Blimey, if you look up the expression cor Blimey. What it actually mean obviously, like, that's like a really Cockney type expression, right? London.

00:21:17--> 00:21:20

If you look it up, it actually means God blind me.

00:21:21--> 00:21:30

Panama, you have to be careful what you say. Like, there are expressions in every language that are not meant literally.

00:21:31--> 00:21:39

Personal Personally, I would not say that expression, if, you know, if it means something like that, even if it's not meant literally.

00:21:42--> 00:21:59

But certain expressions are allowed, you know, especially the ones that we hear in their heads, you know, that are not meant literally they're just meant as a telling off or they're just meant as a expression.

00:22:01--> 00:22:06

Okay, but if they all words that are slanderous, or

00:22:07--> 00:22:08

that harm you the other person,

00:22:09--> 00:22:11

then of course, we shouldn't say that.

00:22:14--> 00:22:14

One minute,

00:22:16--> 00:22:19

one of the sisters is asking about Miss lessons.

00:22:20--> 00:22:44

Well, you can go to YouTube, actually. And the last class is up already on my YouTube channel. I think it might be a minority YouTube channel as well. And of course, the screen is there as well. So the PowerPoint will be visible as well. Okay, so you just go to our YouTube channels, and you'll find, I think the last lesson was 23. Lesson 23.

00:22:47--> 00:23:00

So now we move on to major lesson number 45. And that is a hard rule. All welfare e bill Addy, that betrayal, right or being treacherous.

00:23:02--> 00:23:14

And not being faithful to one's covenants and ODEs that you make with other people. Right? not fulfilling one's pledges, basically.

00:23:16--> 00:23:49

And a lot of that a lot, of course, says that we're all for the law in the land, can I miss all that? honor your pledges, fulfill your, your covenants, right? The agreements that you make with people, for you will surely be accountable for them. If you think about it, our prophets, Allah, Allah when he was selling and one of the things he was really known for wasn't it was his sense of truthfulness. When somebody made an agreement with him, when somebody

00:23:51--> 00:23:56

had any kind of thing that they'd given to him, for example, to look after.

00:23:58--> 00:24:02

He was always truthful to that, and that was something that he was known for.

00:24:03--> 00:24:07

And no society can really thrive. If,

00:24:08--> 00:24:13

you know everyone becomes pathologically unable to keep there,

00:24:14--> 00:24:29

the roads and the kind of agreements with each other, right. That's why we have contracts and make contracts with people so that things are laid out. And to the best of our ability, we're supposed to fulfill those contracts right?

00:24:30--> 00:24:39

At the lobby normal alnor reported that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there are four signs that make someone a pure hypocrite.

00:24:41--> 00:24:46

And whoever has them has a characteristic of hypocrisy of Norfolk

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

until he abandons it, and these are the four signs and I'd say three of them are kind of related to truthfulness and you know this major sin right which is

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

Fulfilling ODEs and fulfilling one's pledges right and Covenants and agreements. When he speaks he lies. When he makes a covenant he is treacherous. When he makes a promise he breaks it. And when he argues he is obscene, even Abbas reported that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said five sins come with five afflictions

00:25:26--> 00:25:29

This is an interesting how the from a lesser

00:25:30--> 00:25:37

you know, it's not like from hiding a Muslim but it's a according to Mr. Massoud at

00:25:39--> 00:25:44

the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said five sins come with five afflictions

00:25:45--> 00:26:08

people do not violate people do not violate their covenants, but that their enemies are given power over them. They do not judge by other than what Allah has revealed, but that poverty will become prevalent. obscenity does not appear among them, but that death will become prevalent senator here means

00:26:09--> 00:26:13

like for wha haish, right, like shameful sins.

00:26:15--> 00:26:33

Like sexual sins, for example. They do not cheat in measurement, but that their crops are prevented from growing, and they suffer drought. They do not withhold the obligatory charity meanings. But but the sky will hold back, it's rain.

00:26:35--> 00:26:36

So panela

00:26:37--> 00:26:40

five sins come with five afflictions.

00:26:41--> 00:26:50

Yeah, sometimes it makes you think, doesn't it? When you hear, for example, that some of the most corrupt countries in the world, okay.

00:26:51--> 00:26:55

Or at least those that are known to be corrupt,

00:26:56--> 00:26:58

sometimes happened to be Muslim countries, right?

00:27:00--> 00:27:03

Or countries with significant Muslim populations.

00:27:04--> 00:27:17

And you think so panela What a shame, you know, shame on us shame, that corruption become so normal on the streets, you know,

00:27:20--> 00:27:47

bribery. And, you know, people lie, people lie to your face, certain countries, you go to, a person can make a promise to do something for you, you know, and before you've even, you know, left the place, they've prepped you, or tried to take some money off you in an unlawful way, etc, right.

00:27:48--> 00:28:01

their sense of integrity has been worn down. And so Pamela, that's something that, you know, we think of these things as little, but it's these things that make or break our society.

00:28:02--> 00:28:05

You know, like, one of the things that I think

00:28:07--> 00:28:34

makes us society work is a certain level of predictability, you know, certain level of not knowing where you stand when it comes to the Justice when it comes to justice, when it comes to the law, things like that. Right? And in countries where there is a lot of corruption, and where there is no kind of proper social contract, I would say, between its leaders and its people,

00:28:35--> 00:28:56

it it just breaks down. You know, you don't know where you stand. And that's that uncertainty causes a lot of problems. You know, you don't know what the system is. And that ambiguity is used as a way to control the population, right? But it's a very, very harmful

00:28:57--> 00:29:17

and it's not what the Sharia intense at all. So the very first thing that we should all be doing sisters is in our own lives and in our family's lives in our children, instilling truthfulness, instill and these are all related truthfulness, aren't they, right?

00:29:18--> 00:29:24

Keeping ODEs keeping promises. If you swear by Allah to do something, you do it.

00:29:26--> 00:29:57

If you make an agreement, if you promise somebody that you're going to be somewhere you are there, or you reschedule, you make you do things in enough time, etc, right? Your word is you, your word is you. And if you keep on breaking your word, if you keep on going against your word, what happens is you actually erode your own self sense of self worth. Because your brain tells itself, that you can't be trusted.

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

You see, so

00:30:00--> 00:30:29

Psychologists also talk about this, how the effects of lying the effects of deception, right on yourself, your brain starts telling itself that this person can't be trusted. This person has no integrity. And that's why you yourself will suffer from being a person who is untruthful or who doesn't keep their promises doesn't keep their agreements, right? You borrow some money from somebody with no intention of paying them back.

00:30:30--> 00:30:33

You tell them that you'll pay them back, but you have no intention of doing so.

00:30:34--> 00:31:09

That's terrible. You know, and that should be beneath us. And here and this idea, if any, there are consequences to these things, when some when these types of things become prevalent in our society, that society is basically going to implode, okay, so major sin number four to six, believing soothsayers and astrologers. Okay? knowledge of the unseen is something that Allah has right? Only Allah has knowledge of the unseen except if he has given some of that knowledge to others, right?

00:31:10--> 00:31:26

Allah says in the Quran, in a Lucha in the who was it while you're not zero? Lysa Yeah, Allah ma Ha. Indeed, Allah alone has knowledge of the hour of the last day. In other words for the final hour,

00:31:27--> 00:31:41

he sends down the rain and knows what is in the boobs won't matter did enough. Some other taxable one woman did enough, some via yard and route in the LA Halim on her beer, that indeed a lot

00:31:43--> 00:32:02

that no soul knows what it will earn for tomorrow. And now so knows in what land it will die. Surely Allah is all knowing, all aware. So Allah is telling us that there are things that only he knows. And again here in this if I only move a B fella, you're here to allow a B he had

00:32:03--> 00:32:23

eliminated todo, mi Rasulullah. He alone is the Knower of the unseen, and he reveals to none his unseen except a messenger who he has chosen, for example, right. And in this Hadeeth, certain types of

00:32:24--> 00:32:27

soothsaying and fortune telling are

00:32:28--> 00:32:39

forbidden, I had the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam say I offer a tiara, a total are all part of a jabbed.

00:32:40--> 00:32:50

And it means these three types of things are basically types of ordinary ordinary beings, trying to tell the future or getting omens about the future.

00:32:52--> 00:33:07

Through the way a bird travels, okay, I know we don't really do that anymore in our times, nobody, I don't think does that really, probably some societies, maybe some primitive societies probably do, right. But

00:33:08--> 00:33:18

in the time of the Prophet salla, solo, this was something that was a way of telling the future, that, for example, a person would hold a bird up

00:33:19--> 00:33:24

and let it go, and which, depending on which direction the bird went,

00:33:25--> 00:33:52

they would take an omen for what's going to happen in the future. Right? If it flies to the left, it means this, if it flows to the right, it means that like that, you know, that sort of thing. And this was all prohibited by Islam, in this had the the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam is reported to have said, that Allah set among my servants are those who awaken with faith in me and disbelief in me, whoever said,

00:33:53--> 00:34:34

we have been given rain due to the fever and mercy of Allah, he is a believer in me and a disbeliever in the stars. Whoever said we have been given rain due to the rising of this star he has disbelieved in me and has put his faith in the stars. And yeah, gotta be careful because sometimes you hear, like people say, these types of statements, not necessarily about the stars. But for example, they just have these weird superstitions right? Like, oh, this means that that must have happened or whatever, right? Like, you must have examples from your own cultures and countries. You know, every culture has these types of things.

00:34:36--> 00:34:39

Islam came to remove superstitions.

00:34:40--> 00:34:48

If you think about it, even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when his son passed away, his son Ibrahim,

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

in Medina, passed away and there was a an eclipse. Right there was an Eclipse and some people started saying that you know, it must

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

Because the Prophet son passed away that there's an eclipse, because, you know, it seems like such a grand symbol, right? A symbol, it's very symbolic and Eclipse. And of course, it was a very, very sad day because the prophets son passed away.

00:35:20--> 00:35:27

And yet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came out, didn't he? And he said, he said that the,

00:35:28--> 00:35:36

the sun and moon are creations of Allah. And they do not Eclipse due to the birth or death of anybody.

00:35:37--> 00:35:45

Right? And then he said, You know, when, when there's an eclipse, then you should pray, right? To this special seller.

00:35:46--> 00:35:50

But you see how human beings are very quick to connect

00:35:51--> 00:35:59

things to the celestial bodies in this in the space, or to some kind of phenomenon, right?

00:36:00--> 00:36:09

that exists any kind of phenomena that exists that seems above humans, or superhuman or supernatural or just

00:36:10--> 00:36:23

amazing, right? Humans have always been kind of quick to connect those with some worldly things that are happening right here on earth. And it's okay to remove all those types of superstitions.

00:36:25--> 00:36:30

A lot of Annabella has knowledge about what's going to happen in the future. Allah is the one who sends the rain.

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

So we need to remove these types of superstitions at any kind of

00:36:38--> 00:36:45

resorting to people or things that are supposed to tell us the future, right?

00:36:46--> 00:36:59

And that's what a soothsayer is so usually somebody who like a fortune teller, somebody who they'd go to who would tell them things about the future or give them warnings or you know, these these types of things.

00:37:03--> 00:37:09

Again, Hadith in Sahih Muslim whoever goes to a soothsayer and asks him about something and believes him

00:37:10--> 00:37:13

his prayer will not be accepted for 40 days.

00:37:14--> 00:37:30

So panela that could be a fortune teller soothsayer, it could be an astrologer as well. Because astrology you know, if you if a person goes to an astrologer, and the astrologer tells them something about the future and then they believe him or her,

00:37:31--> 00:37:45

then you know, this is this goes against belief goes against belief in a lot, right? Because how could that person know that person doesn't know? You're putting your belief in this person and this person's knowledge?

00:37:49--> 00:37:59

I shared with Ilana reported, some people asked the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about soothsayers, and he said, they are upon nothing.

00:38:00--> 00:38:02

He said, they are upon nothing.

00:38:04--> 00:38:23

They said, O Messenger of Allah, sometimes they speak about things that come true. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Those are the words snatched by the jinn, who whisper it into the ears of their friends. And it is mixed with more than 100 lies.

00:38:24--> 00:38:31

So you know, like, sometimes, I don't know, I've never watched these things. But I've heard that sometimes, you know, these

00:38:32--> 00:38:48

psychics and people like that they tell somebody something. And it's like, that's so accurate. Usually, you notice that these types of people say things that are general and apply to everybody, you know, for example, if I said to you, you know,

00:38:50--> 00:38:54

I know there's somebody who's causing you a lot of trouble in your life at the moment.

00:38:55--> 00:38:56

Okay, if I said that to you.

00:38:58--> 00:39:04

Probably all of us would be able to say, Yeah, that's true. How does she know? You know?

00:39:05--> 00:39:10

Why? Because all human beings have somebody in their life is causing them trouble, right?

00:39:12--> 00:39:33

So sometimes these psychic type people, they tell you things that are general for everyone, right? Everyone has a problem in their life. Everyone knows somebody who, I don't know, whatever they say, right? You get the picture, right? Like, they say things that it's very easy for somebody to say yeah, that is true, right?

00:39:37--> 00:39:40

But sometimes they may say things because they are

00:39:42--> 00:39:53

communicating with the jinn. Right? So they're practicing witchcraft or they're doing things that you know for communicating with with the gym.

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

And the gym. They they, this had this that say, you know,

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

They, when the gym go up into the heavens or towards the heaven, they overhear the angels.

00:40:09--> 00:40:13

Sometimes when the angels are discussing a decree that Allah Subhana, Allah has made,

00:40:15--> 00:40:26

the jinn can hear that. And then they will come and tell those people practicing witchcraft or people trying to communicate with the jinn, which is haram, of course.

00:40:29--> 00:40:34

And so those people will take that knowledge and mix it with loads of other

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

falsehoods, okay, or the gym will mix it with loads of falsehoods, and then that person will just

00:40:41--> 00:40:44

repeat it. So there's an ounce of truth in it.

00:40:45--> 00:40:49

Right? And so people start getting impressed by that person.

00:40:50--> 00:40:53

But in reality, they don't know. They don't know the future.

00:40:55--> 00:41:22

So just to wrap this one up, stay away from fortune tellers, mediums, psychics, you know, the exact type of person who's telling is trying to tell you the future might not be the same as the time of the prophet SAW Selim, right? We don't use birds and things like that. But the concept is the same right? Reading horoscopes shouldn't be reading horoscopes reading horoscopes and believing them. That's like,

00:41:23--> 00:41:32

going to a soothsayer and believing them, right? And we said that Subhan Allah prophet SAW, Selim told us that a person's prayers are not accepted for 40 days.

00:41:33--> 00:41:49

If they do that, right, so stay away from horoscopes, these things are not harmless fun, you know, sometimes I see even Muslim kids, Muslim teenagers, for example, talking about horoscopes and these types of things. No, keep your kids away from this stuff.

00:41:51--> 00:41:56

Don't watch programs about psychics and, and these types of things, you know,

00:41:57--> 00:42:34

there's no point in doing so. And it's only gonna mess, mess with your mind really. And also, it's not right for a Muslim to do that. Right? increase your knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala increase your connection with Allah and realize that it's Allah who has control of your future, right? Why do people go to these types of people? Like, I remember reading that Princess Diana, for example, she always used to go to a fortune teller, right? And I was thinking, so Pamela, like, people get so insecure, they have this feeling of insecurity, I'm sure she definitely did, right? If you know anything about her life.

00:42:36--> 00:43:00

And they have this sense of insecurity and lack of direction, or they don't know, or there's something that they want to happen, and they don't have control over it. So they think by going to somebody who can tell them the future, they'll have more control or something right, they'll have more of a say, or they'll, they won't be caught by surprise, or something like that, right.

00:43:01--> 00:43:12

And all of this is false. All of this betrays your lack of connection with a lot really, you know, it means you're not relying on the one who really has control over everything in your life.

00:43:13--> 00:43:16

Remember that Allah Subhana, Allah is in control of everything.

00:43:18--> 00:43:38

And teach our children that there's no truth in these things as well. You know, don't encourage it, think it or just turn a blind eye to it, thinking that it's just harmless. Make sure they know where the lines are, you know, because otherwise they could fall into things, stop believing in certain things that, you know,

00:43:39--> 00:43:44

are against our beliefs, right against what Allah Subhana Allah

00:43:45--> 00:43:47

revealed to us. So

00:43:48--> 00:43:49

inshallah, next time,

00:43:51--> 00:43:58

we're going to move on to this one, which is a wife disappearing, her husband made a sin.

00:43:59--> 00:43:59

Right.

00:44:01--> 00:44:15

And maybe two or three others. So I'll see you next time is shot a lot, jack ma Farah. Again. Next time, we'll probably have a little break as well for a lot of Maghrib just going to quickly see if there's any questions.

00:44:19--> 00:44:33

If there's any, you know, lessons you've missed, you can always go have a look on YouTube. And they're all being uploaded one by one every week. So hopefully you shouldn't miss anything.

00:44:34--> 00:44:38

Just to saying unfortunately going to sue the sales is very prevalent in West Africa.

00:44:41--> 00:44:49

Do you know how exactly they do it? Like, what the process is like? Is it just like going to a lady in a room or something?

00:44:51--> 00:44:58

I know what the kind of the caricature of it is basically a woman with a crystal ball right?

00:45:00--> 00:45:21

It used to be this lady on TV called mystic Meg. And if you guys remember, and they usually make fun of these things, right? She used to be on the National Lottery, not that I used to watch it, but, you know, I might have come across it once or twice. And she used to be like, she used to say some really general thing you know,

00:45:23--> 00:45:26

about who's gonna win the National Lottery.

00:45:27--> 00:45:36

So Pamela, you know, in popular culture is just seen as a bit of fun, right? But you know, there are people who actually believe in this stuff.

00:45:38--> 00:45:47

The YouTube channel is my YouTube channel, or iluminar. So, my YouTube channel, just, if you just type Fatima barkatullah on in YouTube, you'll find it

00:45:48--> 00:45:58

luminar is on menorah cardif. Okay, and I'm going to ask you all for a favor. If you don't mind, I'm going to paste the link

00:46:00--> 00:46:01

for

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

the playlist, okay.

00:46:06--> 00:46:11

Which has our, I'm going to post paste a link

00:46:13--> 00:46:15

to the playlist

00:46:16--> 00:46:18

for the 17 major sins.

00:46:19--> 00:46:22

class. So that's like,

00:46:23--> 00:46:29

How many are there now there's like 23 videos. So panela, 23 hours,

00:46:30--> 00:46:31

basically.

00:46:33--> 00:46:42

And I want all of you so that's the, that's the link, I post post pasted into the chat. You can all Copy that, please.

00:46:43--> 00:47:17

And I'd love it if you could please share it with just one person. At least. That's the homework, okay, share the playlist with one person. Because sisters, I'm sure you'll agree that knowing about these things, knowing about these major sense is really important. One of my teachers, he said, You know why we need to know about the major sins or about sins, as well as knowing about good deeds, is because doing good deeds is like putting the central heating on, you've got the central heating on houses getting warmed up.

00:47:18--> 00:47:22

But then you're committing sins, it is like having the windows open.

00:47:24--> 00:47:33

Imagine the person has their windows open, and they have their central heating on app on full whack isn't really doing any good. They're basically working against themselves.

00:47:35--> 00:47:48

And so that's why it's important for all of us to know these major sins. And actually, that's why I chose to do this class because I noticed that there were certain things that even even I

00:47:49--> 00:47:58

could live my standards in, you know, I'm being really honest with you. Like when I started University, there's a lot of fitness in university, you know,

00:48:00--> 00:48:07

there's a lot of good things as well. But there's a lot of things that a lot of temptations a lot of situations that you find yourself in that you might

00:48:08--> 00:48:34

easily your standards might start slipping, you know, and I thought to myself, look, the 17 minute if I do this, I did 17 major sins as a class, then it's gonna help me keep my standards up. Right? And it's gonna help inshallah others to know what these sins are. Because some of them they're not that intuitive, you know, people I don't think most people know eavesdropping as a major sin, and I think they know that.

00:48:35--> 00:48:56

Um, etc, right? So I think it's important for us to keep remembering what these major sins are. And also of course, there, there are steps that lead to them, right, they don't just happen overnight, often. And so if we're afraid of falling into major sins, hopefully we will

00:48:57--> 00:49:08

take the precautions right necessary to avoid falling into them or the things that could lead to them will be a little bit more, a little bit less naive, I think, in sha Allah.

00:49:09--> 00:49:10

So

00:49:11--> 00:49:22

inshallah with that I will leave you to panic Allah home or behind the eyeshadow Allah ilaha illa Anta a stuffy will cover to be like salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
