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

So you know Mohammed or earlier savage mine

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

today insha Allah will talk about the concept of ease and moderation in Islam

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

and it is an important subject.

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

So las panatela said in the Quran, okay that Acacia nakumatt and Osaka.

00:00:22--> 00:01:08

And as we have made you a mother's community on a moderate nation that you'd follow the middle path and also the lies that are seldom used to warn about excessiveness and on Hulu and etc in exaggeration, in the religion we're practicing, you know the religion. So, it isn't, it is a concept that needs to be clarified that needs to be explained. And it has a different you know, it could be discussed from different angles from different perspectives. You know, when we talk about moderation, we will talk about moderation when doing the acts of a vida, we might talk about moderation and behavior and social interaction the way we interact with people when we are doing our

00:01:08--> 00:02:01

when we are discussing matters of disagreement, moderation, for example, in matters of moderation, when it matters of disagreement, people will disagree not all of them, but some people will disagree with other people they might they might neglect some etiquettes and some manners and this and they show some lack of nor maybe respect to each other. So, all these things are important also moderation moderation in matters of arcada especially tech fear matters matters of tech recharging other people with copper are labeling them with copper, is it something easy and everyone has has the ability or has the right to do it or it comes with a lot of restrictions and there are rules and

00:02:01--> 00:02:20

actually earlier men have to deal with this issues. So this issue is a really important and we see that many people are confused about this concept and will follow we'd like to talk at least about you know some issues in this helicopter hopefully in the future we'll talk about this subject from different angles inshallah.

00:02:21--> 00:02:34

And before I start this halaqa in the beginning, I would like to emphasize something that Islam as a revealed religion, from Allah subhanho wa Taala is a moderate religion.

00:02:35--> 00:02:49

It doesn't mean that there is something wrong with the religion of Allah and you are trying to make it more moderate. This is something that has to be clear, because Allah, Allah in the Quran, he says work eradication and cometan, Osaka

00:02:50--> 00:03:05

and also la Sol and indifferent ahaadeeth warned his oma about extremism or about exaggeration or excessiveness, we're practicing the religion. So it is on itself if you hold the Quran and the sooner you will be used and

00:03:06--> 00:03:10

eventually you will be following a path of moderation

00:03:11--> 00:03:14

the middle path,

00:03:15--> 00:03:17

so, it is a balanced way of life.

00:03:19--> 00:04:04

And moderation here means the middle path between as I said between laxity and between excessiveness and extremism, most people are inclined towards laxity, we have to be we have to be honest, most people are inclined towards towards those towards laxity, those whom Allah spent Allah has blessed you maintain a course of you know, the, you know, for middle or the middle path, they keep themselves on the middle path. There are people who are inclined all the time because of their mentality. Or they say ecology, you know, they are inclined to work towards harshness towards exaggeration, and maybe extremists.

00:04:06--> 00:04:55

And I would like here to emphasize this meaning as I said through some proofs from the Quran, and the sooner and so we don't use our personal interpretations. We try to look at what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam said about this concept is not nice if we talk about something or religious matter and we introduce our keep introducing our own personal interpretations. Now we go back to what SLM said about this concept. And I would like to start this halakhah with Heidi from zaharie, inky tab and email. The Book of email the chapter of Bab de nuestro bukovina visa seller, hub Bodine La La Hanafi it is somehow so this is this hadith is found in the inside Buhari. In the

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

book of email in the chapter at Dino user the religion is easy

00:05:01--> 00:05:09

And then also last Assalam said in this hadith in the Dena use Sharon, when you shared the Dena hudon illa helaba

00:05:10--> 00:05:18

for said they do work or whatever Shiro was there a new will hardware t wa t O'Shea. O'Shea in minute. dulha

00:05:20--> 00:05:38

ofI rewired in Zed alcohol causes the taboo and Khalid Masood fissa Buhari, and it was related by Abby hurayrah the alojado so he said in this hadith that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, this religion is easy, and no one becomes harsh and strict

00:05:39--> 00:06:30

in the religion without it overwhelming him. So he will be defeated at the end if he becomes harsh and strict, while practicing the religion, he will be at the end overwhelmed and he might give up. But we'll try to go shala to study the words and the terms used by Rasulullah sallallahu in this Hadith, because this is a beautiful Hadith it's a beautiful piece of advice. And it is it gives us a vision and how to go about things how to do perform a by that it teaches us a great methodology. So last SLM, said here after he said, no one becomes harsh and strict in religion without it overwhelming him. He said, so fulfill your duties. Set D do Waqar Ibu as best you can and rejoice

00:06:32--> 00:06:38

and rely upon the efforts of the morning and the evening and a little at night, you will reach your goal.

00:06:40--> 00:07:26

So as you can see, our solar system is giving us instructions how to manage our time and how to take advantage of good times are very bad at during the day, we'll talk about it at the end. But he in his head is basically he defined for his oma, you know the concept of ease as you can see the concept of ease in moderation in its proper, proper Islamic context. So it's not coming from this is not the opinion of a scholar, a specific scholar is not the HD head of so so this is the definition that was given by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And as I said, we don't need any personal interpretation here. Or the definition of any other scholar when we have things that were clarified

00:07:26--> 00:08:08

by Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And well, well defined by our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So basically, this hadith what are the defining qualities of this path, a path of ease and moderation? First of all, we have to pay attention to the warning that Rasul Allah says, Allah made in this Hadith, he said, when you shared the I had una de la Ilaha lava. Ave Hashem, parameter. lyerly great scholar of Hadith is the best scholar who explained Sahara Buhari. He wrote an explanation about Sohail Buhari in around 13 volumes or 14 volumes. He used to be called named ameerul momineen Fl Hadith, the prince of believers in Hadith.

00:08:09--> 00:08:17

So he said, Well, Amanda, layer tamako hudon fee, Amelie Delia, where truco rifka Elijah tsongkhapa.

00:08:19--> 00:09:09

He said, The meaning of this statement from Russell lies on allowed to sell, no one would exaggerate or goes to extremes when practicing the religion acts and leaves gentleness. It doesn't you know, he is not gentle with himself. And he and if he focuses in an API that will know about some examples like Medina, Abdullah Muhammad, and his story with his wife after he got married for the alojado this is another beautiful story that was mentioned in Sahih al Bukhari and also last lesson dealt with it, he dealt with him and he taught him how to keep himself on a moderate path or the middle path. So here, he said, la tamaqua had no one goes to extremes when practicing, you know the

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

religion were true corica leaves gentleness, except that he will give up he cannot, he will not be able to continue on this path, when kata he will give up for you will have and he will be he will be overwhelmed or defeated. And you know this, you know people some people might take this course because they believe that they have to be perfect or they expect sometimes other people to be perfect. They expect their brothers and sisters in the messy to be perfect. So if someone makes a mistake in front of them, they become very upset and very angry and they might start shouting. We know we all say that oh no one is perfect. But sometimes when we deal with our children, we deal

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

with them we treat them like they have to be perfect and they are not allowed to make any mistakes. But they are in

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

Young children, young human beings who are learning, we know that we made mistakes were young. And we had our challenges right when we are young. So but when we become parents, sometimes you forget that we were young and we make mistakes, you know, and we are humans, and we expect them to be perfect. So, you know, difficulty comes from our own understanding as human beings wrong understanding, you go back to the Quran, and the sooner, we'll find that, you know, this religion is beautiful, it's easy, and it's moderate path as a result. So, Selim said, So, here, he said, I said do so fulfill your duties with moderation, we would explain it this way, fulfill your duties with

00:10:45--> 00:11:33

moderation. Now, certainly do the word said they do. The Arabic word said they do literally it means to aim to your target. Let's say you have an arrow shooting board in front of you do you aim at the blue color will the red color will the core area which is yellow right, usually aim of the yellow area, the core area in the middle right. So you aim at your target. So this is the the meaning of the word said do it means here when we talk about religion, matters of religion, direct your intention and your efforts towards one direction which is pleasing Allah subhanaw taala and fulfilling your your Islamic duties. So, this is a proof. This is a proof here. Now this is a

00:11:33--> 00:11:40

misconception that we deal with it. Now. This is a proof that moderation does not mean laxity

00:11:41--> 00:12:26

does not mean looseness in the matters of religion does not mean neglecting the EVA philosophy Hello attalla or neglecting the Islamic duties it does not mean because it also last I sent him he said try your best, a mature target you should have a goal as a Muslim. As a believer. You have to direct your efforts your intention towards that goal. So for set dedu said they'd like someone who is trying to shoot with an arrow and he's aiming at the target which is the yellow area as I said. And then we added here the term with moderation. Why? Because this is the understanding of some classical scholars. And one of them is you know, hedger himself will have Hazara hematoma and he

00:12:26--> 00:13:12

explained the Sahara Buhari, he explained the word sentido he said set the due means in Arabic exam was said that was so up invaded frothing while at the free and then he said Carla, who knew her I said I do whatever so to fillable. So even though hazama to La la, he said he said that keep yourself firm on this path of falsity and moderation. And he said it is a sour actually it is your you do what is right. So you need some knowledge here you have to know what is right. What is halal, what is haram? What are your obligations, what are your duties and what is recommended. So if someone makes a mistake with something recommended you don't make a big make a big deal of it. And

00:13:12--> 00:13:51

you make a fight you fight with him because he missed something that is recommended. So you have to know you have to look at your priorities. What are the pillars What are obligations What are recommended? You need some knowledge here right? So this way that's why hasn't he said? I said dad who was our bus Oh, you know, you know the right thing and you do the right thing at the same time. If we're praying together you don't come and you try to read karate say I'm doing something good. I'm reading karate, but this time to pray Thor, so everyone has to be involved in salata doing Salah Thor, right. So and there are many example where people tend to do something else, where the

00:13:51--> 00:14:12

obligation of the time or what is recommended in that specific time is to do something else. This is another example. So he sent me with how you if rotten fruit, if fraud is exaggeration, or excessiveness, and the fruit is laxity or looseness, this is the definition of muhajir Rama to Allah Allah.

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

And then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Waqar Ebo and this is a very important important term here he said for Sydney to work arriba because he knows la sala to a seller that no one is perfect.

00:14:31--> 00:14:59

And no one will be able to get it right all the time. Or get his hit his target all the time and achieve his mark all the time. He knows that you are humans that we are weak. We have our own limitations. We have our own weaknesses. And then he said you aim at your target. For Carnival means if you don't hit the core, the yellow area, you will be hitting the red surface beside it right or the older the other blue surface right

00:15:00--> 00:15:22

Carnival that means you're gonna get it close. That's okay. And then he said wherever Shirou rejoice, no receive good news from Allah subhanho wa Taala as long as you are trying your best to please Allah subhanho wa Taala you are trying your best to fulfill your Islamic duties. You know, find someone method and sometimes

00:15:24--> 00:15:54

a brother. This is something that we have, you know, I have seen brothers who, but then you meet him at nine o'clock and he's very upset and he's angry. And why are you angry today? I didn't pray for you on time. Did you try your best hamdulillah Okay, if you try your best and you slept, that's okay, that's fine. Because this is something that happened at the time of personal life and allow yourself to the Sahaba and the Messenger of Allah, they were traveling, and they slept over and didn't wake up until after sunrise, one time, not all the time.

00:15:57--> 00:15:57

So she didn't

00:15:59--> 00:16:03

memorize this ID and say that's okay. That's fine.

00:16:05--> 00:16:47

So but it's okay. I mean, if it happens to you, if you're trying your best all the time to pray for your own time, but one day you didn't wake up on time. You don't say don't don't think that you are doomed, you'll be doomed. The holidays your God, you are destroyed. No, you are a human being. Unless you have a town that wants to know, when he looks at your heart that you have, you're trying you have a good intention. This is what Allah subhanaw taala wants you to have a good intention to perform a bet on time and to get closer to him. subhana wa Tada. So basically, here, the translation is fulfill your duties as best you can caribou and you are not going to get it perfect. And

00:16:47--> 00:17:12

perfection is not what is expected from the believers. They are not expected to be perfect. But if you get it close, that's okay if your target is 100%, but you reach 80% 70% Alhamdulillah May Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, bless your efforts and bless your AVR that, as they say, aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit what

00:17:13--> 00:17:15

you may hit the star, right? You get something,

00:17:16--> 00:17:55

you get something you aim, you hit your targets. If you miss it, you're gonna hit an area beside it insha Allah, and you'll be close with Erica Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam con, you know, caribou. And then he said we're actually true and this is, this is a good news for the believers. As long as you as I said, You are trying your best, then receive the good news from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala lay your eyes on mazzini Allah, Allah does not waste the acid the reward of the mercy in those who are trying for excellence. We are trying your best Allah Subhana Allah will give you your full rewards on the day of judgment and actually rationalize us lm

00:17:55--> 00:18:38

in this hadith. What he said wherever she wrote he was fulfilling a command that was given to him by Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran on different occasions in different areas. He commanded him to give good news, glad tidings to the believers. But further in Surah Al Baqarah la de la carte waka de moody alpha Sequim, wa Taala Nakamura who abashiri meaning were Bashir in one minute at the museum for tsukkomi I put forward or put forth some good deeds for yourselves. And this is very important, you know, hear him when you pray, you're not making a favor to Allah subhanaw taala when you first you're not making a favor to Allah

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

subhanho wa Taala when you give sadaqa you're not just making a favor to Allah No, whatever you do, you do it for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada but you do it for your own benefit. You do it for your own self because Allah subhanaw taala is not in need of our API that this is something that has to be clear, because there are people who do things and then the we complain all the time and they make you feel like they are doing a favor by praying but sometimes your children when you deal with them, try to wake them for the future. We're lucky. We make you feel like they are making a favor to you to Allah subhanho wa Taala No, you are doing it for your own sake. And we need to explain this

00:19:18--> 00:19:59

to them. That you praying to Allah subhana wa tada for your own sake, you're praying. you're praying to save yourself from Hellfire from the punishment of Hellfire, so long as I sell him when he stood up the mountain suffer. He started with his daughter, Fatima, Fatima de la vida. He addressed some tribes from coration. He addressed some some members from his family, and he included for the amount of the alojado I'm not going to benefit you in any way. Save yourself out. You have been to Mohammed he mentioned his name, Fatima, daughter of Mohammed, don't feel that think that you are the daughter of the Prophet. Then you will be saved because of this family lineage. Know this

00:20:00--> 00:20:37

will not save you on the Day of Judgment. He said you need to work for your own self salvation, you save yourself from hellfire. So this is the message that we need to send to everyone and to our children, family members that you are doing things for your own sake. And then the last part that I said was, Fear Allah, Allah and Nakamura, who knows that you will meet him, you will meet us. And then unless mantella gave an order to the Messenger of Allah will be sharing what meaning give glad tidings to those who are trying to arrest the believers who are trying to worship Allah subhanaw taala make their best to their best, you know, when it comes to their prayer, their fasting, their

00:20:37--> 00:21:18

Sadat, give them glad tidings. And this is something you know, this is important that duet and indicators and imams have to have to remember pay attention to this concept of giving Bushra to the many giving glad tidings to the many because there are people who focus all the time on the other side of the story, which is severe punishment from Allah subhanaw taala. And in sort of the calf, Allah subhanaw taala told us that one of the objectives of sending book this book, revealing the book The Quran to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually is to give glad tidings to the believers. In salty caffeine, the first eight if you look at the first eight, the last fantana said

00:21:18--> 00:22:02

hamdu lillahi, WA De Anza Allah, Allah, Allah, Allahu Allah, all praises due to Allah subhanho wa Taala was sent down the book upon his servant, and he has not made there in any deviation. So this book is perfect. This is a Shahada from Allah subhanho wa Taala. That whatever is in the Quran included in the Quran, we know that it was kept safe without any changes. No one was able to change anything in the Quran. So we believe that there is nothing crooked in this book. It is a perfect book that came from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Even if we read sometimes some if and we feel that could be a very powerful, that's very strong, we might feel that, Oh, this is a harsh punishment, or

00:22:02--> 00:22:43

this is or that if this is the home of Allah subhanho wa Taala, at least inside we have to say this is the home of Allah. And we have to believe in it. And we have to accept it. Because this is what Allah subhanaw taala revealed to His Messenger sallallahu sallam. And then he said, Amen, he made it straight. Leone, the rabbi essentially, then we live in Milan, who to warn of a severe punishment from him. So Hannah, what to add, this is the first part of the story or the first side of the story. And then he said, to give glad tidings to the believers, those who do righteous deeds, that they will have a good reward, good reward from their Lord. And they will in which they will remain

00:22:43--> 00:22:57

forever. This is the Bushra that is given to the believers. Great, you won't hear agenda there is nothing else besides agenda on the Day of Judgment. And Allah subhanaw taala, they said they will stay there forever. And this is a great news for the believers.

00:22:58--> 00:23:25

But as you can see, there is a balance here in the last hotel is talking about, you know, severe punishment from him. And he's talking about giving glad tidings, giving good news to the believers. We know as I said, some educators some Imams, or some parents, even some parents who keep talking to their children about punishment fell fire all the time. So this is how they introduce a lot of their children, that he's a severe

00:23:26--> 00:24:09

God who punishes his service servants all the time, he would his gig eager to throw them in Hellfire and punish them. This is not a good actually, we're not doing anything good to our children. If we give them this message, if we help them to get this impression about the loss of Hello data about their, their Creator, actually with children, we have to focus more on the other side of the story. We have to talk to them about gender because they are young children. They don't understand maybe the concept of punishment in the Hellfire at the until they grow up and they and the you know the studies by themselves, but but when they are young, we try to focus on the concept of gender giving

00:24:09--> 00:24:16

clad glad tidings, we do this inshallah you'll be rewarded. Allah subhanaw taala will be happy with you, and so on.

00:24:18--> 00:24:48

And I got some complained from some brothers. They said the only I know some imams who talk all the time about, you know, warnings and and Hellfire and punishment. So this is something that actually it is a deviation, a deviation from the middle path. Because here we have to make a balance. We'll make our talk to people, especially the Muslim mean. So Muslims might feel that some emails are angry all the time. It might apply to me to me, I mean, sometimes I feel about myself about myself.

00:24:49--> 00:24:52

That's, you know, I should have maybe said it in a nice way.

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

I'm honest, I'm trying to be honest with you. We are humans. Sometimes we get angry.

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

And we feel at the end of the hotbar, that maybe that was not necessary.

00:25:05--> 00:25:25

But sometimes if you know what the Imam are learning from the community and the way they interact with the community, and they know about problems and issues, you don't blame them. But still, we need to pay attention to this balance, balanced way of making making dour and delivering the message to the believer, to the believers.

00:25:28--> 00:25:31

At the end, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:25:33--> 00:25:39

he advised the Muslim in the believers to manage their time.

00:25:40--> 00:25:43

So he said, Is there a new bill hardware to you or our shaving minute? Do?

00:25:45--> 00:25:55

You rely upon the efforts of the morning and the efforts of the evening and a little at night, he's making a comparison between the believer who is traveling towards the afra

00:25:56--> 00:26:02

surgical movement? Yes, Lucho Toria nilanjan. So he's taking a path.

00:26:03--> 00:26:25

And the last, or the end of this path is here. So you are traveling in this life. We're making the trip. And comparing the the journey of the movement of the believer with a journey of a traveling person who's traveling on this land. At that time, at the time, first of all, I sell them.

00:26:27--> 00:26:49

The traveling, traveling people used to take advantage of the early morning because it's the weather is nice. It's not hot, you know, the Arabian Peninsula. You know, the weather in the Arabian Peninsula. It's very harsh in the middle of the day. So they used to take advantage of the morning time. So now how is the early morning? Sorry, not

00:26:50--> 00:27:12

he started with Alberto is traveling in the early morning. And that was their habit. They travel after fudger. And they continue till maybe don't have time and then they stop to take a rest. And the way to they don't travel in the middle of the day. It's very hot. They wait maybe till a certain time and then they continue their journey.

00:27:13--> 00:27:58

So he's telling you that believe or try to organize your time the way the person traveling person manages his travel or his trip in the Arabian Peninsula, maybe in the different environment. The story could be different but also Lazarus lm lived in that environment. And he's giving example he was talking to the Sahaba and to the of the Sahaba at the time, but hamdulillah The meaning is a clear and we can learn from this lesson. These are examples This is a figurative speech, or is making a comparison here. So sorry. So it's about time management here. So he said basically the message to the believers take advantage of the early morning and that is that was his Sonali salatu

00:27:58--> 00:28:29

salam. That was his habit that when after he performed solid budget, he would sit in his place and make music or read Quran at his sunrise and then he would pray to ha or Shahrukh Khan Shahrukh are the same, but they are called the tour of Kaiser cultura when they are done just 15 minutes or 20 minutes after, after sunrise. If the two rockers are prayed method at 10 o'clock or 11 o'clock they are called The sooner of

00:28:30--> 00:29:11

and by the way, it's nice to have offered these days if you can do it because we need to, or were supposed to increase our better during these days. If we have time, we might mention a few things about the excellence of these 10 days. And I'm sure maybe the Imams talked about, you know the subject today because it's a very important subject. But my point here is that was his finale. Salatu was Salam he used to take advantage of this. The freshness, the freshness of the morning, he's fresh, he's he had, he has energy, the person has energy, and he can achieve you can you can read Quran you can make Vicar even if you have to leave the masjid. You can make liquor while

00:29:11--> 00:29:56

driving for example to your house or to your place of work. You can do the morning and in the morning supplications morning and evening applications of cassava while driving so you take advantage of this time because it's a beautiful time. And then also last Assalam Santa Rosa Rosa as I said, it is a time from the world till mothership. But it was not their habit to travel during the middle of the day they used to avoid the heat of the middle of the day in that environment. So the use may be to travel at the end in the late afternoon. socialize isolated it's like saying that I know that you will be busy during the day doing your business or trade or buying and selling or

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

doing your work, but take advantage of this time.

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

Early morning, I take advantage of the evening time which is for example between acid and Marie. You are free. It's a free time now. And you can do my filter. Of course some MSR the evening supplications after you offer your salad salata Lhasa, and he said che one minute wash a minute deja alyttle for from a little acolyte. And he knows that it is very difficult to people you know to keep worshipping Allah subhana wa tada during nighttime nighttime,

00:30:32--> 00:31:00

it's, it was meant for rest, but also la cillum used to perform pmla so if you can dedicate some time from the night to perform some a Baghdad pray some soon after Asia and make some liquor or wake up before fudger and make some mistake far. So, this is the advisor for some lies, I sell them, manage your time, take advantage of these good times and you will reach your goal that was his naseeha

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

you know given to the meaning, or to the believers, which means don't keep traveling 24 hours because you will give up, you get tired that you will be defeated and you cannot continue and here when it comes to practicing the religion, you know that this is a figurative speech or a comparison. Look at some people, some young people who come back to the religion forcefully and they want to be perfect and they do everything at the same time will lie we know many of them, who gave up gave up even practicing the deme he stopped coming back to the massage and they are not involved with the community. Because they want to be like they started even some of them they started actually

00:31:43--> 00:32:28

labeling some family members with with the fear or you know or judging other people they became very judgmental. You know, this is not the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala if you are if you start judging people after you came back to the religion, then you should worry you should remember your days of Jamia, you should remember that before just a while ago, you were not practicing the religion. And you needed someone to be nice to you you needed someone to have some hikmah when dealing with you and talking to you and making derawan inviting you to the dino philosopher Hannah wattana. And he would love it if someone uses some hikma on talking to you, and advising you to come

00:32:28--> 00:32:43

back to the dean. Now he came back to the dean and you start judging people and he became like Remember, you think that you are a great amount or a great scholar you have the right to pass judgment over people, though this is not the right thing to do will allow you to Allah Allah.

00:32:45--> 00:33:35

In a different Hadith casola Salim said alaikum haidian Kassadin. Find the human you have had the DNA as live who haven't had the problem of hacking with Assad Hakeem when he met wakita No, it hasn't. So in this hand, it also has a solemn say meaning is it maintain a major cause of action for whoever goes to extremes will be overwhelmed or defeated. And here I would like to mention some stories that in order to mausoleum things that happened at his time and a salad with Sarah, and he had to deal with them. He had to correct people and give them some instructions about how to worship Allah subhanaw taala properly. So we got the method in the story of Abu israa. In Abu Israel, that

00:33:35--> 00:33:58

was his name a man from Croatia. It was not a Jew or a Christian. But that is his name. for him. He was from vanarama from Croatia, the tribe of Croatia. So as soon as I saw him was giving a sermon, or whatever. And then he saw a man standing up under the heat of the sun. So he asked about him, he said Who is this man

00:33:59--> 00:34:17

and the Sahaba. It looks like he was not familiar with his face or allow him but he asked about it. So the Sahaba told him that he is able to throw him his name is Abu Saeed and he made an oath, look at this weird oath to stand up and not to sit

00:34:19--> 00:34:29

and to never stay under any shade. That means he has to stay under the heat of the sun all the time. Not to speak to anyone

00:34:30--> 00:34:33

not to speak to anyone and too fast.

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

So Rasulullah Assalam said, he said tell him he told his companions because he was giving a sermon maybe inside on the member. He saw him outside. Go and tell him

00:34:46--> 00:34:53

that he should sit down and sit under a shade and speak but he should complete his fasting.

00:34:54--> 00:35:00

So the only thing that he the only thing that he approved that his thought was Salah is what fasting

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

Because it's easy for him to complete his fasting and it is arriva and most likely you will be rewarded inshallah for this a bit in a different version. He said in namaha, Ernie you and Terry we had an F so

00:35:15--> 00:35:30

in the law honey Yun until he has an F. So he said Allah subhanho wa Taala is not in need for this man to torture himself. So last night, Allah does not want you to torture yourself when when worshipping Him.

00:35:31--> 00:36:04

So this is a very actually beautiful example that our solar system here dealt with. And a different story, there was a woman who made an oath that she will go making hash, and that was very common, by the way in the old days, but at the time for him, he dealt with it. The she made an oath that she will go to Hajj walking. Once she was able to have a ride, she was able to have a ride. She was going maybe with a caravan and people were riding camels and riding horses and everything. But she decided to walk.

00:36:05--> 00:36:54

socialize, I seldom addressed her sister. And he said in the love and Ian and the Arctic enough cell, Maria turca is an ally is not in need in need of you for your sister to torture herself. Ask her to to have a right. That was the instruction to fossilize, I sell them, you know to these people who felt the fault it's a she had you know, it's it's a personal interpretation default that or a personal choice, but it's a wrong choice. They felt that maybe the torture themselves. If they choose the most difficult path, then they will have more reward and they will be blessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala but also licenselogix said no, this is not the case. And Abdullah Ahmed historie

00:36:54--> 00:37:02

Abdullah Abdullah Abdullah, not Abdullah Omar Abdullah Abdullah Abu last. So he said and this history is inside al Bukhari.

00:37:03--> 00:37:06

His father helped him to get married with a woman

00:37:07--> 00:37:30

of a noble lineage from koresh. So he said, but I did not. I did not pay attention to when I met her, I did not pay attention to her rights, because it was busy with performing acts of a bidat. So Michelle, Allah had energy, power strength, I would love No one. He was young. He felt that he should spend all his time

00:37:31--> 00:37:35

you know, in performing acts of a ballot. It's amazing. He got married

00:37:38--> 00:37:39

and he didn't do anything.

00:37:40--> 00:37:44

And Abdullah and Mr. Ross came to her to his

00:37:45--> 00:37:50

daughter in law, asking her cave Hello Abdullah he Meraki

00:37:52--> 00:37:53

so how did you find Abdullah?

00:37:54--> 00:37:59

And he answered he said near Mr. rasuluh. near my lab to lira be

00:38:01--> 00:38:13

tsunami fetish, Lana karafun Welcome era Flan, Effie Roshan. So she was Frank. She was honest with her father in law. She said he is a wonderful, amazing servant

00:38:14--> 00:39:03

of Allah. But he is someone who did not pay attention to me. And he did not sleep in my bed. She was she was honest. SubhanAllah and this is okay. Because in this case, I know her rights are neglected. And this is a Sharia issue. But that was due to his understanding of the law of no armor of the alarm. So anyway, I will Ross was very upset with his son. And he said I helped you to get married with a woman of a noble lineage from Croatia, neglected her rights. He went to Russia. He complained about his son. sola says, you know Abdullah, he says come, he said at assume on the heart. Do you fast during the day? He said now I'm Yes. At accumulate do you pray at night? He said yes. He said

00:39:03--> 00:39:54

Well, I kidney so after, well, suddenly, enamel suddenly were upon what is it was UniSA firmer Aviva and suniti. felice, me. He said, I fast. And I take a break some other times, or I break my fast on other days. And I stand up for prayer. And I sleep and I get married with a woman from a rubber band. So Nettie Felisa money. And this is a warning actually. This is a very strong warning from Russell lies as lm to those people who go to extremes. He said my Robinson Lottie, whoever rejects my son now, he's not of me, which means he's not one of my followers. And imagine yasumasa Selim telling you, you are not one of my followers, what will be your reaction? This is a very strong

00:39:54--> 00:40:00

warning from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Quran, as I said, has confirmed

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

Danny This

00:40:02--> 00:40:08

is a meaning method an indifferent ayatollahs paradigm mokara, after the last pantalla talked about the concessions of

00:40:10--> 00:40:50

that were given to the fasting people. If you are traveling you have the right to break the fast you're sick you have the right to break the fast and then you make up those days later on. He said you read a lot Have you come userra Well, are you ready to become a nurse Allah intense for you is and he does not wish to place any difficulty upon you. That is the the moderate way of Islam the moderate path of Islam. It is confirmed through it in the Quran for these are some lies I sell them when it comes to data and interaction or social interactions with people. And I would like to mention only two examples. There are many examples. But tonight I would like to mention two

00:40:50--> 00:40:56

examples. And I will ask you first. If we don't have a headache, what would be our reaction?

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

And Arabi a bit one came to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:41:01--> 00:41:05

When he said Bernie better follow the law, I mean a solid

00:41:07--> 00:41:32

Mother Father Lavalle I mean a solid, he said comes to Salawat in in October and why By the way, but at the end we'll we'll make a comment about this but let's finish the Hadith. So he said comes to Salah wort said tell me about my obligations in regards to salat, what are the obligatory what is obligatory upon me.

00:41:33--> 00:42:21

You know when it comes to performing solid, so he said five prayers, unless you want to add unless you want to, you know perform some volunteer prayers. And then he said when he met the fall of Allahu Allah Yamuna cm, tell me about what Allah has made, or what Allah has prescribed upon me as an obligatory fasting. And then also last Assalam said, Shahada Ramadan, so you have Lucia Ramadan, Al and totowa. So he said, the fasting of the month of Ramadan, unless you want to fast some extra days. And then he said, Ask him about the salaat, and also about Zakat, and also Lhasa psyllium told him about you know, the prescribed amount of Zakat, they told him about some Shara some obligations,

00:42:22--> 00:42:32

and then the men. At the end he said, we'll have the academica will have this is a big one who came from the desert, the countryside, he doesn't live in Medina.

00:42:33--> 00:42:53

You know, he's just want to learn the minimum. What are his obligations? He's very honest, is very honest. And he's not, you know, he's not being fake or anything. So he said, we'll lay the academica will help by the one who honored you with this message with this honorable message?

00:42:54--> 00:43:34

letho Willa and kusumi my father of Allahu Allah said, I'm not going to add anything. I'm not going to pray any volunteer prayers. I'm not going to fast any extra days. He's honest. Right? Well, I also mean, follow the law Alisha. You know, when I thought about this Hadith, I was honest with myself, if someone came to me, or comes to me with this message with and makes this statement in front of me and I don't know about this Hadith, because the way I know the Hadith now will follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah sasl. Right. But let's say that I don't know the Hadith. I'll be honest with you, what will be our reaction?

00:43:37--> 00:43:41

I might ask him. Do you do you watch TV?

00:43:42--> 00:43:57

Do you watch hockey? You listen to music? do you do that? You have time to check your Facebook? Do you have time to check your emails? And if he tells me Yes, yes, yes. Brother, do you have time to do all these things? And you don't have time to pray some extra prayers?

00:44:04--> 00:44:06

Yeah, but look at the reaction of Rasulullah saw Selim.

00:44:08--> 00:44:16

I'll tell you about his reaction the statement that socialist Islam made I know what you this is a good point you are making but we have to have a balance

00:44:17--> 00:44:20

of line soda alcohol agenda in sadhak

00:44:21--> 00:44:24

is very important I have to explain it circular area

00:44:26--> 00:44:54

so into the brother is making good point because it also allows us intimate statement he said if Lucha in sada and he will be successful if he's saying the truth, because what did he say? I'm not going to add anything, but I'm not going to decrease. So that means five times I will pray the five times prayer on time properly. month of Ramadan, I'm going to pray the 30 days from other if there is some amount of Zakat all paid no extra charity.

00:44:56--> 00:45:00

So this is what Allah wants you to do. But if you do all these things,

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

With good intention, doing them for the sake of Allah, do you think Allah will send you to Hellfire?

00:45:07--> 00:45:52

Tell me the answer. No, because you fulfilled your obligations, because you will not be you will not be taken to account for neglecting What? Something recommended. But this is not i'm not encouraging you to neglect your son, by the way. Why is the point the brother is making his good while he says what is the guarantee that you will do these things properly? So you need some extra things? What is the purpose of doing that extra prayers to make up for any shortcoming in the obligatory praise? Right? Let's say you didn't wake up or you neglected. We didn't pray this day. You didn't pray us on time, you know. So you need some help from other voluntary praise. Let's say is a cat you didn't

00:45:52--> 00:46:20

calculate the cats properly. You miss some jackass, you didn't, you know, forgot about something. And then the sadaqa will help you will make up for any shortcomings. When paying the cat for example, fasting the same thing, right? So it's good actually to add these things. But look at the reaction of Rasulullah Salah sarasa salaam actually has given him a good tiding here. He's giving him good news after her inside.

00:46:21--> 00:46:39

If he's saying the truth, if he will do what what he said, fulfill his promise he will be in general. That is the promise of Rasulullah Salam or the statement that was made by Aristotle lies in the law and there is another example that is more powerful

00:46:41--> 00:46:45

about the guy the big one who came to the masjid and he urinated in the masjid

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

it's it's a story that took place at the time for so long we need to learn from it. But imagine that we don't know about this hadith.

00:46:56--> 00:46:58

Because if I if someone does it here

00:46:59--> 00:47:04

I have no choice I have to remember the Hadith, right? And, and the etiquette of Rasul Allah says Allah also

00:47:06--> 00:47:18

just pour a bucket of water on it and kind of come come this measure it will not build for this purpose of following this universal law. But let's say I don't know about the Hadith, what will be our reaction?

00:47:19--> 00:47:29

Maybe we are maybe looking for some stick up stick and give him a beat him up or what will be our reaction. To be honest, if we don't, we don't know the head, he

00:47:33--> 00:48:02

might leave you You are a Muslim, you're not a Muslim. It comes to the machine. But this is something that happened at the time for some losses. And the Sahaba were very upset. The Sahaba actually got up to beat him up. Because didn't imagine that the Muslim would do this. But also like I said, we knew that he's a new Muslim, and he doesn't know and he's a big one. So looking at his circumstances and his condition. So he said leave him leave him what leave him finish

00:48:03--> 00:48:48

and then put some some some water on his urine and then the water of course we'll deal with it. The water will remove the naza and then he called him and now the tally in time for tally tally him with a comma in the heading massage them to dinner. The shaman has emerged in the community Vicki was allowed to cry to cry and he this massage it houses of Allah were built for the purpose of reciting the Quran performing the prayer and remembering Allah. But this is the XML for solace SLM, this is the beauty of his flap and his and his manner. Salli Salatu was Scilab and also his knowledge, his patience, his Hidden Valley salatu wa Silla. He's our example. Of course, some Sahaba were very,

00:48:48--> 00:49:31

very strict, you know, and we talk about them. We laugh when we mentioned their stories like one hot tub and the lower No, but we need we need always to look at what the lack of Rasulullah saw Salah because he's our OSHA. He is our Kudo. Allah Subhana Allah told us that he's our example. We should follow his example it salado Salah, especially when we deal with these cases. That's why here I'm telling you, I try to explain myself here. I'm not very harsh with children, or with people who bring their children here, but I talk to them. I talk to them when they create some problems on a personal one to one, but I don't like to, you know, blame them in front of people will scream at

00:49:31--> 00:49:59

them. Because I have seen these things happening in massages and some massage and people shouting after the salad. Why do you bring your children Why do you do that? And you know, but there are some people who my friend and his wife is not at home, or she's sick and he likes to perform the salad with the Gemma. So we need to be patient sometimes. And also La Silla was very patient with with children, we try to follow his son. But these are beautiful examples about following the path of moderation being moderate.

00:50:00--> 00:50:43

being balanced when you deal with people. But if our philosophy knows that the person knows the outcome, and he's disobeying Allah subhanaw taala on purpose he might be angry, or a salatu salam, and he might be strict in his in his delivery delivery in his message, his explanation Allah salatu wa sallam, but most of the time, he was kind. He was nice, and he used to use hikma when talking to his, his companions, Allahu Salatu was Salam. So, this is what they need to say tonight about the subject. But Shall I give you a chance now to ask questions, if you have question, and then we'll talk about some other issues. And this subject as I said, is a broad subject. So we can deal with

00:50:43--> 00:50:47

with it from different angles method and the problem is have to clear

00:50:48--> 00:51:30

you know, going to extreme when when dealing with the problem of tech fear is another subject that is very complicated. One of the subjects of happy that needs to be dealt with clarified, that's a different issue. But here at least today we we know that wrestlers are seldom used to advise people to follow a moderate path when you know, we're obeying the laws Potala or doing the the act of a Baghdad and we just get an idea about, you know, the general methodology of Islam in this area. And also when it comes to the area of dealing with people and doing Tao she's come along Hayden Swan cologne hunting Chateau La La Land, Mr. Furukawa to Hoylake
