that hamdulillah Allah Subhana Allah to Allah sent His messenger and the Prophet sallallahu sallam said in in World War Two, the Otama McCarron will flop I was only sent and the Arabs use in nama for what's called edital history to really focus in on what's going to be said either put it off or happy. And he said salatu salam in a MOBA to attend me my Mecanim at a flop
to perfect or to complete
noble character. And the prophets Allah is seldom said that people will achieve with good character what people don't achieve with fasting and praying the prophets Allah I said, I'm when he sent more either bingeable to the Yemen, one of his
he said had an SPO Hora can Hassan you know, treat people with good character. And among the most important qualities of good character is
preoccupying oneself with one's own business. The Prophet SAW, I said, I'm saddened so Hadith that Imam nawawi puts in his 40 Hadith, it's related by Imam at Tirmidhi but it's also a hadith that I will download the great Hadith and the writer of the Sunnah said is 1/4 He said, All of Islam revolves around four sayings of the Prophet sai Sam and he put this hadith as one of them. So this is like 25% of the teaching of the prophets, Elijah Saddam. And he said salatu salam, Min Hosni Islam and Mari Turco Humala. Yeah. And he from the good, or the beautiful Islam of of a Muslim, of a man or a woman, obviously, is to leave off What does not concern oneself.
In America, Alana was once asked how old he was and he said, Akbar Allah, Allah shannock.
Just mind your own business, or what's Why do you need to know what somebody's ages? How does that help you?
This is what your mom's had to do to Zanny. In his remarkable commentary on this hadith he says that Turkoman Allah Yeah. And he
includes your actions. It includes your applause, either for dual kuramathi Herbs called Foolad condemn excessive speech. He said that it includes also concerning oneself with the most important things and he said these are essentially your livelihood, your your worldly concerns and your other worldly concerns. One of the sellers was walking by a house and he asked Mr. Prasad, he mentioned this and he asked the person who was with whose house is that? He he said he fasted after that for for several days just as a FARA because he was
full dollar Kalam whose houses that
this quality of Islam and when he said min Hosni Islam and Amara II Saturday interrupters, and he says Men Kamal Islam, it's from the complete Islam. It's it's from the Islam there are many ideas like a human or had come had. It means your image is not complete. So your Assam is not complete until you leave off What does not concern you.
Hema metaphyseal Delano mentions
that even on Mobarak was once Luquillo rotta Reba two and the whole like Heba was mentioned in his presence and he said, look into Mahtab and love to own me if I was going to backbite I would back baits about my mother, because she he happened nurse B has sanity she deserves my husband had more than anyone.
Al Hassan Al boiserie. Somebody told him so and so said such and such about you. In other words,
Back backbiting. So he sent him up when the top He sent him a plate of dates. And he said, I heard you had some bad things to say about me. I just wanted to recompense for giving me those hasnat.
Myrtleford Currahee once he he was always doing night prayers.
And one night he didn't do the prayers, his wife.
She complained, there's a good wife telling why didn't you pray last night?
He said well,
so and so I know he does the night prayers but he was backbiting about me yesterday, so he gave me his night prayers. So I took a day off.
People don't think about this, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in that had come later Kalam will be back Kenny man lay your pillar her Bella
lay your pillar her Bala. A man will speak a word and not really give it any consideration. That word tower behave he naughty Jahannam it will take him into hell. And he said in the Rosalia tekanan bad Kadima lay on Pilla Habana and rewire funeral one in the in what pleases Allah we are fat Oh, she that are chatty it will elevate him in paradise. Yah hoo fill Jana. So we don't think enough about our speech. Allah subhanaw taala warns us about this. He says Subhan Allah to Allah.
what up Adhara Canadian Santa Ana, Matt was so big enough. So we created the human being and we know what's being whispered in the hearts we know what's going on in your hearts. Well not know probably him and Hublin worried we are closer to him. Then his carotid artery. We are closer to him in other words than his consciousness itself.
The Oh dodge, these are the the carotid and the jugular vein that bring the blood up and bring it back down to the heart. That's without that if you shut somebody off people that do jujitsu here No, you put somebody in a certain lock. And you can put them into unconsciousness very quickly because that's the source of your consciousness in the material world is the blood that's going to your your brain. You cut that off and you lose your consciousness. So Allah says we are closer in the telecom Omotola peony. And if you meanie Why not when the two who are there to receive everything myall Federman Napoleon ill Are they here are people achieve? These two are there. They're on the right
and on the left carried, waiting or pivoted and they're marking everything down. Nothing is omitted. Nothing is omitted. Think about that. Imam mackerel Delano said, either dar el Moro an Colombo home in Amity he hola karamo. When a man realizes that his words are part of his actions, his words diminish. Because it's all Maha Sabha. Everything you say is going to be it's recorded. And you know, the amazing thing like I'm recording this for somebody. The amazing thing is,
we have these signs now. Like here I am speaking. And Allah says so ECAM IoT I'm going to show you my science fair to start you don't Don't be hasty about this. I'll show you my science. You don't think I can record every single thing you say you have machines now that record everything you say?
You don't think that Allah subhanaw taala can't record everything we say my yell freedom in Olin. Not one utterance comes out except that it's recorded.
So the prophets ally Sam was warning us because he's beshear but he's also Nydia.
A woman lost her son in one of the huzzah wet and the privatize them. He heard her say hennion neck agenda, you know, congratulations the agenda. And he said, Well, now you did eek. The alota column a female and he
maybe he spoke about things that were of no concern.
He told Abu Huraira or the Allahu Anhu.
He said, can I tell you what
lay Algeria alayka to read Elijah Elijah column Do you want the pen? What academia store own
the pen and everything is written down? He said can I tell you something that if you do it that you won't the pen won't be recording?
An hour or so of course
He said did a thorough job
do the forehead.
And he said,
extended Mahato Mala, avoid all of the prohibition. So here's a Whammer and Noah he do the Allameh to the commandments, and avoid the prohibitions inwardly and outwardly. And then he said what that had come down female, Ionic. And leave talking about what does not concern you. Leave talking about what doesn't concern you. Yanique Aquila, shannock Malik, that's our CMO salsa from Malik Imam Shafi after that, because he asked him about his age after that, anybody that asked him I'm chef and about his age he would say acapella and oceanic
because he learned that from his teacher
so we don't think about this we don't think about the tongue. Why the bingeable one of the beloved companions of the Prophet Allah Armenia, it will carry on while I love you more al
Wilde was traveling with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he said to him, ya rasool Allah
tell me something
that I could build me
now you fit in the agenda will you by 20 Min. And not tell me what will get me into paradise and keep me far from the hellfire? The prophecy I sent him said

We're in Noho lair see Ron
and I'm in your subtle elimine your sorrow Allah Allah, but it's an easy thing that Allah subhanaw taala your sorrow made it easy for him.
Then he said
to me Nabila, believe in Allah Allah to shift PT che to tears Zack had the sumo Ramadan, but the hudgell bait, do the five pillars.
And then he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
Allah of miracle Allah is can I tell you the doors of righteousness or somo Jana
fasting is a protection
it's a protection when you fast you're not going to be sinning. We know in Ramadan we've all experienced it. You're you're much more guarding yourself you're aware of yourself.
US sama Jana Jana is something you hide behind. It's something that protects you the shield
was sadaqa to taught fear, happy utter, karma youth fee and Mao owner and sadaqa charity will will obliterate sin, the way fight water puts out fire.
Wa salatu Rasul Minh jofa Lail and the prayer of a man in the night and then fatahna to delta G nobleman and Mala G the owner of boom joven Wautoma and woman Mara sang to clone for that didn't have soon my Octavia home Mina Kurata Yunnan Jessa and Bhima Cannery and Milan and then he read these eyes from Surah to such that that they are those who raise that the Jaffa tattoo and then Moldavia on those places where they sleep
calling all law in hope
and in fear joven Wautoma N fear of the fire and hoping for Jana
and they give out their charitable and then salida said I'm
about to Jaffa he there's a few laugh about it. Most of them say it's the tahajjud purse, but there's a very interesting opinion it's mentioned in the amorphous yourown one of the opinions is that it's any prayers after a holdover shrimps
because the jelly Arabs you know it's very hot in Arabia and the Jolly Arabs would actually sleep after market and that's why waiting for the night prayer because the prophets it seemed delayed the night prayer that was a type of tahajjud for the Arabs because they were accustomed to sleeping after the horrible shrimps. So they had to actually wait and so that's to hit June in Arabic means to avoid sleep putting off sleep for the people have sort of here the students, right? It's too fat
for to genmab Avoiding who Jude
so that's why in the Maliki school any prayers after the six prayers after motive to the to prayers after Isha and any prayers after that time was considered tahajjud
and then he said salatu salam
alphabeta little quicker
than the other camera. Can I tell you what the what the real head of this whole thing is? Well, I'm moody he will deal with a tsunami he it's pill
there and it's Pinnacle it's Acme
Valeria rasool Allah tell tell me more either The lion wants to hear tell me
and he said Ross will Emeril Islam.
The foundation of this is Islam. What imaginable a Salah. And its central pillar is prayer.
Within what was tsunami, a jihad, which if you read
the books, it's not just military jihad. It's all forms and this is why the marquis in the Babel Jihad put all the fora that Keifa jihad is one aspect,
the material the the physical fighting, protecting the barriers the revolt of the Muslim
lands. That's one aspect and then he said somebody sent him
a letter to look at Luca Allah Maliki dedica. Cooley, can I tell you how to get all of this? All of this? Think about all of this.
How do I how do I get all of this?
For 100, BV Sani costs SANIKA
that's how you get all of it.
Just take hold of your tongue.
Even Mr. Rude said the thing that deserves prison most is the tongue when the prophets eyes him said that what did was say
in them what a homeowner the man at the kingdom will be. Are we going to be taken to account for what we actually say? Because they're thinking action speech. They're thinking action.
And then the prophets Allah as Sam said, tequila, or Mocha? This is an Arabic idiom. It's not if you translate it directly it sounds very bad.
You know, may mean your mother weep over your death. But but it's an idiom like
just shock. Like, Why
could you say that?
Well to cook Vanessa Finnerty Otto, would you hear him in the hospital elsina Tickle? Are people thrust into the Hellfire on their faces dragged
more keep an adult which he he the Quran says and they said how does a man walk on his face? He said the one that made them walk on his two feet will make him walk on his face. Look at the the snake walks on his belly
kimchi and Arabic Yoshi out about me
that's what that's what the prophesy Sam said. So amazing headache. Amazing Hadith, all of that. God's your tongue, the prophet in the water Vemma Matic he said Salatu was Salam
min mocha hola who shall remain wet as your Jana? Whoever is protected from two evils will enter paradise. And then they they waited and then somebody said the auto sword Allah are you going to tell us what they are? And he was silent. And then the man repeated it again to prophesy some was silent. And then the men repeated again and somebody told him stop.
And then the prophets Allah I said him said Moonwalker Hola Hola, Shara if na what are the agenda?
Muy bien de la ma Boehner is Lahey the halogen
muy bien. And then He repeated it three times what's between his two jaws and what's between his two thighs, the tongue and the genitals and they're related? Because there's a pleasure in speaking.
And in fact, the moment of Azadi says there are people you have to let the dough but hold the fee out of the nests they get a pleasure out of speaking ill of other people
that it's a type of pleasure they enjoy speaking ill of other people even Masaru Dorado more either a Delano and there's a
you know, either it's more populated or some IMAMBARA Zadie era firewalla Rasulullah Salah is and for those of you know know that time,
lead to mazanec PD SANIKA rod Hamad Al Quran Watanabe lane. Do not rip up tear up with your tongue. The good honor of those who carry the Quran and of those who are seeking knowledge for two Ms. XIAP aka Kira will nod and then you're ripped apart by the Dogs of Hell.
The tongue is a weighty thing.
A Rockman Allamah Quran Hara Pattinson Allah mahal ban it comes last. Why does it come last? So the first is the Quran and then the next is the the creation of the human being and then the tongue
and this is because without the Quran, you are not in the arm of insan
and once you are in the arm of insan you're ready for ban
and there's no wow there's no out there. There's no R Rahman anima Quran Wa Hara Pattinson what Allah Maha ban
this is a big problem
people love fitna even octava says, a helpful che and il facade Zen little alum.
The thing that the facade the bad people love the most is when scholars slip up.
Very interesting statement
How can't wait, tell everybody so and so liquid? He said Look what he did. Why? Because they want to bring them down to their level. They're just like us. There's there's no Nimue this there's no exemplars we're all pathetic. So it becomes an excuse for them not to rise themselves. And that's why Allah subhana wa Tada says, Wait are literally homeless and Lomasa who are the homeless Allah? Allah Yabu leanness the people that find fault and other people the people that seek out their faults they seek out their our rods to expose them
well what is that? Why do they enjoy that so much because they're sick feel it will be a model for Zara. Hello, Mara.
Just sick people.
Love to talk, love to expose the faults of others.
This is this is the world we live in. It's an old story. We're just here for a little while we'll be gone. And then there's a whole other group of people. They're going to do the same thing but yomo Qiyamah weighed on.
weigh in on. It said that it's a valley in hell. There's a lot of valleys in hell. There's one called bolus, right? That is just for the tyrants who mula bolus, you know the police.
That's what it's called in the hadith is bonus mazing international word that the tyrants use everywhere. Take him to the police. And then on your piano, the tyrants who will will about us, take them to bolus Saina, Hadith sahih.
Yom Okayama everybody's gonna see it all be revealed. You're gonna see who's who was sincere and who wasn't when I flip the prophets eyes. And I'll just conclude. There's a lot of things you could say about this Muharram Elisa, and everybody should read that text. In fact, we should reread it until we actually implement it because these are reminded with a caravan Nicaragua and moment I'm reminding myself trust me.
I'm reminding myself
I'm not innocent.
This is a big, big human problem.
But there are situations where the tongue is necessary. And this is important and I'll conclude with this but it's also with a caveat that one has to be very careful.
Allah in ft Abernathy. lumbo Now the mother was female or Dominica that Backbiting is it's a Kabira it's considered a Kabira like an amoeba. And the Prophet SAW is someone's past a grave. And he said you either ban it
and he said they're being punished and he said maybe could be it's not a big thing in common is in their open window law career and the rules are but it's an enormity. And he said one of them cannot yam she been the Mima he used to go around telling things that would make people not like other people.
Right Allah Subhana Allah Allah Tata, Aquila, Lathan, Maheen, Masha and Denon am hummus and Masha and didn't me don't obey any all these people that will Allah Who Allahu Allah He lo people that go around finding fault in other people
and they do their name Mima when no ma'am let you call Jana. So he said
he said Virginia Wahiba 10 ilaha rofa Avoid riba except for seven things
debate and Joe and Barbara acaba. They put it in one line to vollum was stuck it was 50
had their RF virus bitten with his pen Mujahid uses only seven things to volumn somebody's oppressing you and you're trying to get help, then you can tell them
stuff if you're in a situation like somebody's stealing something from you or something, then there's this the artha. Right, asking for another situation that TBWA limb is going to authority is Intel, something that happened like going to the court where you have to tell somebody stole your money or Sunday is the author's when you're actually in this situation was 50 and asking your opinion, the faulty mental piece came to the Prophet told me she said the Rasulullah Hata Barney, I will Jeremy one more hour we are going to be Soufiane
they proposed to me and the Prophet SAW I said a man what are you for Sulu, Nam? Allahu Moussa. He's a su sort of look, you know, poor man. He doesn't have any wealth. And he said, Well, Jamie, lay out a foul, alpha and ATAPI. He doesn't remove his stick from his shoulder in another rewire, which is that's motional mobiola Hoefer. The people have studied this. He says, But Robin Denisa. He hits women.
So he wasn't backbiting he was explaining.
But if you add other things that aren't important, like
when somebody asks you, I'm planning on doing business with so and so. And they say oh, he's Bucky and he's a miser. It's not really related to business
that you want to know if he's honest or not, you can have a honest miser.
So you don't tell what's really unless it's related. And then so that's a stiff tap, asking a fatwa.
And then also, to warn people,
about somebody, and then out of that 10 has been mudra. While I've been that tough is that this is a tricky one because what's better?
Even amongst the med hubs, there's keyed off about Buddha. So it has to be merged masala
with the RTE, it has to be agreed upon if there's key laugh, there's a key laugh some people recite Molad some people There's a rumor that say that it's a bitter there are valid olema that say it's a bitter but then there's other onomah that say it's the data center. So that's a healer if you take what you feel comfortable with who you follow. That's just a filler issue.
You know, some people think we're using a sober has been out there a Sahaba had ropes with knots on them, they use date, seeds. That's not bitter. Imam satin on Rhoda.
Thing about taking the Subha as a blessing. So these are things unfortunately, some of the people that don't have a lot of knowledge get caught up in these particulars.
And then also fiscal moja. Here somebody who is openly doing fiscally openly drinking wine openly fornicating openly, you can warn people about that person, he's a bad person. If somebody does that they're a bad person you're warning them. That's perfectly acceptable, but you have to be careful and this is why Sid said I'm in the water the mimetic and he saw a pig and he said you know unfolds be Salam Go in peace to the pig is haram for Jews and Muslims. But he said Go in peace.
And and and one of the however, he said a two kilometer hands here. Haka. Do you talk to a pig like that? And he said, No, if I knew I wouldn't be standing at a zoo. I don't want to accustom my tongue to saying anything bad.
Are you surprised by a dog in our tradition that was dead a carcass? And his how are you and said Montana why it smells so bad? And he said Walmart appealed to us Nana, but look how wide its teeth are.
They said he only saw the beauty in it.
Alhamdulillah portapotty Hara was stopped for a lolly where I can recite in a Muslim. So Feroz.
Alhamdulillah Nakamoto wanna stay in stain on still Pharaoh who will not be live in Cerulean fusina women so yeah, Dr. Medina, Allah hum. And Tara Mara, he's from nowhere at work hidden at the mana Sina of partner Allahumma fildena Our Hamner one of the things about life and this is a great blessing is you know in in, in filmmaking, because I was involved in some documentaries in filmmaking. They have something called Sony pro cut, you know it's it made editing very
are easy by you just used to be to cut the film, take it out, stick them together. It's a very, very long process. Now it's all digital digitized and they just
edit it very quickly. We have a spiritual editing. It's called Toba. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says that he yum to Allah erases what He wills and he will make firm. In other words, establish it in the book where Ando Omar Kitab everything is written, just like now we have everything recorded. You can't if the Mahabharat you know, the Secret Service is these agencies. Now they have the capacity just if you're carrying your cell phone, they can just listen to your conversation. So we know that Allah showed us this sign,
but you can erase things, and you do it by Toba, making a sincere Toba
rope. Traditionally, if you did backbiting you were supposed to go to a person and actually tell them that it was like confession.
It's tough to do that. You go and say I spoke ill of you.
acomodar rock said the hearts change now like Sahaba they were pure people, the early people they were pure if you told them they would just forgive you. Because they see the sincerity of coming and asking forgiveness. But he said now the hearts are corrupt. He said so what you should do is make dua for them at least after five prayers.
give charity on their behalf. Something like that.
And a hamdulillah Allama Sunday was Salam o Baraka Muhammad wa Anna, and he will certainly will send them to slim and cathedra
