first guest Mr. markkula Hoover Gatto,
we come to another session of the
themes of the Quran. And what we've done so far is we've talked about how balance is something that is needed. We've talked about, about the revelation, how it came, how it had an effect on the believers, what his purpose was, how it changed people through the different ways that it mentioned, the days of Allah azza wa jal how nations were taken to task by Allah, or by the gifts of Allah azza wa jal or by remembrance of the afterlife. And then we spoke about how allows you to set the mindset of the Macan mindset, and how that became the basis of people then transcending to Eman. Okay. So last week we did about a man.
And we said quite a bit about a man and the qualities of a man. And we talked about how allows them addresses the man and a man should be something that that makes a person want to do actions of Islam.
Eman is something that has got an opposite, just like everything else. And commonly we will say that the opposite of Eman is
the opposite of belief is disbelief because then you don't believe which is true in one way, that's fine, the opposite of belief in disbelief. But you also have something else which is true.
Another way of looking at a man and not having proper Eman is to look at it as nofap or hypocrisy. Because those people who don't believe properly those people who don't believe as they ought to believe meaning that the man is weak,
or the man either is not there or the man is weak, and that he man makes them do things they're not supposed to do. This is known as nifa. This is hypocrisy.
And what happens is that when Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam has made his migration from Mecca to Medina.
in Medina, where there was security and safety established for the first time, you find that a number of people have taken on the names of believers, and who have said the Shahada shall de la la la, but yet they're not willing to live the life of the believers with the Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. So this itself became a huge problem. And it became such a problem that at times more harm was caused to the Muslims, by those who are supposedly Muslims were monastics suppose the Muslims, then the enemies of Islam who have who are known to be the characters of the disbelievers. So yes, there was a threat from the disbelievers. And there was a threat from within the Muslim community.
And if you look in the Quran, Subhana Allah, if you open the Quran and the beginning you open and Islamism you'll see that allows a vigil describes the believers Eman. He describes the believers with five verses.
Okay, then he describes Cofer disk belief with two verses.
Then he describes nifa hypocrisy with 13 verses.
five, which was a man, almost triple that of the verses Allah uses to describe the one African and the hypocrites and only two for the disbelievers, which almost shows that it is almost like a third or half of the ayat Allah used for the believers to describe the believers. Now that's astonishing.
And if you look in the Quran, you find that yes, there's a lot of mention of those who disbelieve in those who may cause harm to the to the to the believers. But
almost all the places where there's some form of victory or something mentioned for the believers, always ally mentions one of the biggest problems are the people who are amongst them. They call themselves Muslims, but they're not true Muslims.
They are minority. They're the hypocrites. They have an effect inside and they have hypocrisy inside them. Now it's significant because once you open the Medina sutras
soon as that will reveal the after the hegira, the personal law harness and a made to Madina munawwara once you open that, you know you find so much description about the monastic in. Now, traditionally, a lot of us might have thought that the monastic is the one who said Shahada with the tongue.
And who doesn't believe with the heart. So he's got no Eman inside his heart. But he's got an outwardly Eman from coming from his tongue. Okay, that is the traditional way of understanding a monarchy. And that is yes, that is a monarchy that is a pure magic.
But that type of monastic, even in Rasulullah, sallAllahu, Ellison's time was the minority when I feel
that type of munaf, it was the monaci that was in the minority,
the majority of the monoculars that are described in the Quran. And the majority of the manifests even in our time, are those who have some belief in their heart, they have belief in the heart, but their actions failed to live up to their beliefs. Okay, so there's two, there's two types of monomials. And this is important for us to understand because
we have actually just understood only one type of monarchial one type of analysis and because of that, we kind of think we're safe. And has an ulcer Rahim Allah, Jose, Jose, Tiwari came after the Sahaba de la junta with nine he actually described these two types of monastics one is the one that has no belief in the heart at all. So he's actually got no belief whatsoever, but he's pretending to be a Muslim. That type of person we have today as well. But in the minority, the second type of mafia is the one who has belief but his actions, his hands, his tongue, his his, you know, mode of behavior. He's, you know, legs, his eyes, his ears, whatever, all of those fail to live up to what
he man requires him to live up to. And he's actually, you know, he's actually not that concerned about it.
Now, the first monaci, the one who is monastic by the heart, he has no, you know, she has no belief in the heart. That one definite is one that is worse than the, the, the ones who disbelief and this type of monastic will be in the bottom of Hellfire, where there is most of the most of the heat of jahannam is at the bottom of jahannam. And that's where this person is going to reside. And allows Odell has mentioned this in the Holy Quran Surah Nisa surah. Number four is number one for six laws mentioned that. Now,
this first type of manager who's got no man in the heart, but only a man on the tongue is a person who you know, is an absolute, you know, liar, it's a person who's going to do the most damage they can to the US Muslims, and they, they actually exist amongst us. Please don't forget that. The reason why Allah mentioned them in the Quran, and we're going to recite this until the Day of Judgment is because those people will remain amongst the Muslims until the day of judgment.
They're the ones who are definitely you know, true when I feel who are 100% Mona x and those people who are, you know, you know, on their way to janome if they don't do tober if they don't repent, the second type of menaggio
the one who's got a man in the heart,
but at the same time failed with the actions fails to try and live up to today. He man, they are
people who still have belief.
They are not complete monastics, but they are not complete. believers.
You guys understand? They're not complete on either side.
They have a problem. Part of them makes them be with the believers and they enjoy the moment.
And part of them makes them enjoy themselves with the manifests and the disbelievers and other people. And they like that too.
And sometimes when they will believe is they can Okay, we'll tag along with them. And sometimes when they with the enemies of the Muslims, they tag along with them or the people who are totally failing in their, in their, you know, upkeeping of Islam, they tag along with them. So that's how they were inositol Rasul Allah huysmans time so an example of that is, Allah says, In Surah Nisa soon so number four
Number one for two onwards you can see Allah says in an Manasa Tina, you had your own Allahu Allah says these monastics, these hypocrites, they think they are deceiving Allah. but really they're, they're deceiving themselves. Now what happens to these, these not as many descriptions in the Quran, but what happens is Allah actually says, He says either como una sala de como que Salah, when they get up for prayers, they get up in a lazy manner. Now, again, both benefits have been discussed here some who have no emotion whatsoever if they happen to be with Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam like, let's say, you know,
you have Abdullah Marina Bay or others who are who are really, you know, at the forefront of
showing them the Falco showing the hypocrisy. What will happen is that you will see that they also have to stand up in prayer. But you've also got other monastics who are lazy because they are lazy in their you know, that we can they Amen. Allah says lions, Karuna, La La calida they don't remember a lot except for a little. Okay. Now what happens is if you look in the Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has also given description of the two types of monomials he has said that when you see a person
and he has one of these three things inside him, then he has got hustle Lata min hacer la nefab he has got a characteristic of the characteristics of hypocrisy, but if you see all three of them in a person, then that person is 100% monastic. Okay, so in the same thing, so this was a lesson said For example, He said either had the third cut about when he will start talking, he will lie. So that's just one characteristic of the many characteristics of a hypocrite where either
one or the Oliver when he will promise he will break his promise. So that's another characteristic of the characteristic of the of the Manasa T. And then he said, What either what either to Mina Hana and when he will be entrusted with something, he will break the trust, he will retrain the person with whatever you left with him, right. And in one narration, he says, What either ha summer fungerar when he will start to become argumentative, then he will become abusive. They will use abusive language. Okay, so that's four things you mentioned in one Howdy, three in other ahaadeeth. And he said, Whoever has one of these in them, then they have a characteristic one a characteristic
hustle Latin man holla, Amina, Hassan le, they have one characteristic of the characteristics of the hypocrites, but whoever has all of these in them, then he is a total total maniacal. Okay, so again, you can understand from the Bugzilla Larson that you've got two types, some that you know, they're fighting with their with their nifa there's, you know, I've got to become a better Muslim. I've got a bigger and better Muslim and I'm going to try and now these people are believers, as in they're not true believers, but they are they have got belief inside them, yet. They have they have been affected with bad characteristics of the minority. Okay, so among if you now bring this amongst our
if you think about the Muslims today, we are 1.4 billion Muslims on the earth. And everyone's gonna say took the Allahu Akbar.
But the question is, how many of the 1.4 billion Muslims are true believers? Like the way we explained last week in the in the session that they believe is making them try and do as many good actions as they can?
And how many of the 1.4 billion Muslims we've got
of type one monastics who are who have no emotion in the heart whatsoever, and they're just saying it from their tongue. And how many of the 1.4 billion Muslims we have are from type two managers who have got belief but who fail in their actions to live up to Islam.
I think you would agree with me
that we've got a large number of type two monastics amongst the oma today.
We've also got type one monoket in our oma, but this type one Bonacic are the ones that are in the minority. So there are people amongst us Suhana like him who are selling
Religion, who are going to governments and going to different organizations and who are working with them to completely destroy whatever there is. Amongst the Muslims, there are lows and they call themselves Muslims, they have Muslim names. They had they say, I'm a Muslim as well. I follow Islam, okay, but they're the ones who we know, some of the actions they're doing is totally off the rails with Islam. But we have a larger portion, a very large portion of the people today, who are amongst the Muslims, who have names of Muslims who are amongst us, even sometimes in the Juma prayers,
even in the Juma prayers, who are amongst us, sometimes even in the five daily prayers, who are amongst us, even sometimes when we are interacting with one another, but unfortunately, those Muslims they have you know, when they when that Muslim who's pray Juma with you, when that Muslim who's prayed Salah with you will go out there he will lie like it's easy for him to lie to him. It's like as easy as you putting butter on bread tarts, how easy is for him to lie
for him to say to you, brother, one lie, I will do this for you.
I am trusted trust me well level suheil ally love him, for him to convince you is no problem and then for him to cheat you is no problem.
And then how many of you got who pray Juma with us?
Who will you know, you leave something Amana with them something and then they say oh, I've spent it, I don't know where it is, I'll get it for you, you know, they took took a loan from you. And then they don't want to give it back to you. They make an excuse after excuse after excuse this hypocrisy is exactly the same thing we just talked about. And then the guy who prayed Juma with you or the woman who prayed Juma with you, when they have an argument, they will use this where where thou swear word in their rage and their anger, you know, he will start shouting and become abusive. And she will do the same thing. This is this is one of the elements and one of the characteristics
of nofap we're not going to say the monastics like of type one. Okay? And even when you say to you don't ever go to someone and say, Hey, man, your type two monastic grow up say, don't go genuine equality. Because if you say we're not going to anyone, you know, these days, they're gonna be grazed. Why did you call me a hippie? Maybe you're trying to say to me that I'm like any man inside me, because what happens is because in our society, when you say hypocrisy, when you say hypocrite is we always use it to mean type one.
Okay, but in reality, they are an has dealt with two types of molecules. type one, which we normally, you know, talk about, but type two, and that type two is sometimes the more dangerous one.
Because type two is the one that is amongst us. Type two is the one that you know, sits with or stands with us moves with us, is part of us. And that one fails because of laziness. That one has problems because of, you know, many, many, many things that they haven't sorted out. So as Muslims look, for us to be true Muslims, we have to get rid of the very things which Rasulullah sallallahu tried to get rid of amongst the Sahaba or the Allahabad mine. So for example, he had to get rid of racism from amongst them.
He had to get rid of racism. It is a clear fact because before solaz allows McCain, they are also thought they were the most superior.
Not that they don't think that the most superior today, but you know, before his time they thought they were the most superior. And then amongst them they had rivalry as rivalries and amongst them if they saw someone who's a non Arab, someone who's from Africa, they look down on the person, someone as a foreigner. They treated him different under rules laws and wanted them to treat them equally. The same happened from between the tribe sometimes they were Arabs, Arabs versus Arabs.
Like in Medina, he had to deal with the old son, the hustler. These are two different tribes. And awesome hazards have been divided over about 120 years before Rasulullah sallallahu came to Medina and he managed to put them he managed to unite them and they will call the Ansel the helpers of Medina. But they had the rifts before you know before his time, and even then people are not cada Mahajan, they had their wrists because there was like the Banu Hashim, then there's the Ben omiya. Then there's some other mirrabooka Ravana this Baroda they were different tribes and the different tribes so that they you know, higher than others. This was a form of racism that they had amongst
them. And Rasulullah sallallahu somehow had to get rid of this and make them true believers and he wanted to get rid of those things inside them that had
Had a an element of those things that is not wanted. Now, the same thing happened with jealousy. Rasul Allah, Allah had to get rid of jealousy amongst them, he had to get rid of pride. So one of the things that he did was, you know, the element of pride that the jangly people had is they used to drag the cloth along the ground where they used to walk, this was a proud person walking, you know, his arrogant is proudly the use of these to walk with the cloth, dragging been, you know, behind them, the longer that cloth drag behind them, the greater the person's like, you know, me, I'm so rich, I can afford to drag my cloth on the ground.
And I'm saying, Give him some credit.
That's the mentality that was the mentality. So Rasulullah, sallAllahu, taala had to then he then he, you know, pulled his own his own his local government up high and higher, and higher and higher, until he put it to the middle of his shin, just to make sure he went to another extreme to try and get the Muslims to at least bring it above the ankles, so that they don't have that arrogance, because anyone who walked with the, with there is the law of government in that time, above the ankle was laughed upon. And it was like, you know, you miskeen you know, you don't have any money, you know, what kind of person I you got no status, that's how he was. But he had to do that to get
rid of it. So whether it was a jealousy or pride inside the heart, or he was something on the outside, he had to work amongst the Muslim for them to get rid of this.
And each of the problems that I personally would have the province of Alaska had to work for them to get rid of it. So he noticed amongst his companions, that amongst the companions, there are certain people who are lurking in between them, who also think that they're a companion, they think that they're like the Sahaba of the lava mud mine, but they're failing in their duties.
So one of the failings in the duties was that they used to come for Salah but they found it difficult to pray the sooner Salah
they found it difficult to pray the extra neuroshell or soon soon, and Salah. Another one was they found it very difficult to join there a sharp prayer and the father prayer in JAMA. Because it's dark, it's cold. And you know, you know, if you want to make a name for yourself, let me give an example. If you want to make a name for yourself, you want to if you want other people to see you that you're doing something for Islam, then would you want to show off in the dark or show off when it's bright light? What makes sense? bright and light. So they're all covered Yama, no problem. They'll come they'll come for us. But when it could becomes fudger or it becomes much Sha these two
like don't see you I can't make you know a name I came so I live and says here and he says euro Nana's one of the problems with with this type two mafia and even with the type one mafia was they wanted to show people off that look. I'm also doing this Hey, I'm doing this
for my name Danya Yeah, I did it. Remember me? Remember me? And I said you got you got those people amongst us. They weren't the one we remember.
And so how do I you know, you got to be careful. Because if you if you come to the masjid and you come in and you want to stand in a place where I want everyone to see me that I'm here.
If you stand for Salah purposefully in a place where everyone can see me Allahu Akbar. Everyone knows I'm here. Well that's it. Yeah. If you can't afford sometimes to go to decide or go to an unknown place in the masjid sometimes don't say no all the time. If you can't afford to do that if it if it always bothers you, when you have the side then you got some You got a problem with you that some people you know, I don't want to say I don't want to cause any wars here. Okay, but some people they love to give the van but it has to be the magnet whether
or not bro What's wrong with you, man?
You know they want to give the event so they'll come and ask permission to give me a damn fine you will come and ask permission to give as an exam right? So to Allah the advance of ourselves other than a federal other navorro Shahada is all the same and marriage all the same? Yes. Why did why are they dying to give the Adana
these people are waiting for the Salah people are there people can hear the boys, people when I say
I'm gonna I'm gonna feel inside me.
All those people that had me, okay. And they know that I gave the event because of it. If you give the sort of answer other than you have to give it 15 minutes before the Salah. Have you ever come to the masjid 15 minutes before
I'll tell you, I mean any man, he'd only have two people, for people who will just come in and go into the wooded area. So you'll see a shot and you get a few more because they're still wait some are waiting after money for a shot, some people come a bit early. So ensure you get a bit more load as a van, you might get a few because people are coming in from work and they want to probably put the bags down they might want to rest and read a bit of Quran. You might get a few people there. Okay. fudger avant la la la hora de La Villa. You've only got jeans there. Okay, our gym brothers and sisters, whatever, they're the ones are packed up the place. Okay, so you might not want to give
up because you're scared. But you know, that's that's a problem. So when it comes to the other than they don't want to give it and especially Juma. Haha, oh my god, they all want to fight for it.
If and if you know again, I'm not saying that people who give those events overnight. By the way, please don't don't don't go to war here. What I'm trying to say to you is that if a person has got a will to give a van for Allah sake. And if Allah is the is the main one that we want to keep happy then allows the agenda is there for further though harass Alicia Mahara is there Juma? All the different salons is there and you get the same reward, you get the same reward for the affiliate. And there's no difference in the reward that you will get. But you can see how people can be played in their minds, because they want to they want to have people seeing them. Now the monastics had one
thing, which was if they did something, they wanted it to be known.
Okay, so even if they gave some sadaqa, they wanted to get the credit for it.
They wanted to get you know, some name or something to be mentioned. And if they were not mentioned, they felt like oh, there was no use in giving this alpha.
Now, if you have that crossing your mind, yeah, there's no point of me giving this other guy because my name wasn't mentioned, then my friend you gave for the wrong reason. And you've got a hypocrisy sort of sign inside you. A one that they had amongst them was they they like to waste time.
They waste time. So even they came to the province that allows them, they asked silly questions. They asked questions that were not so necessary. As for the believers, they were serious. And one of the questions they were asking they wanted an answer. Sometimes a hypocrite would ask a question for the sake of asking a question. So that you know wasting time in fact, the Quran said he gave the opposite to the believers and said these are the believers who don't do these things. So for example, the Quran says well, Edina, Houma Annie lovely marleybone those who steered away from idle talk, the believers don't engage in a lot of idle talk or idle talk. The believers stay away from
that. The hypocrites will sit there and yap, yap, yap, yap, yap, just sitting there just wasting time. And just chatting, yapping, yapping yapping now How old are apathetic? And I'll tell you one thing I had this week which which really made me think and made me laugh at the same time and concerned at the same time, you know, you got certain people who are certain communities that are extroverts and certain communities that are introverts. So the extrovert communities are those that extrovert means that you'd like to talk a lot an introvert means you don't like to talk a lot right? So he said he said the communities in the countries that are extrovert if you're from a country that
for the people in that country like to talk a lot when WhatsApp was given to them, it killed them all off. It killed them. Because all day if they're not talking to someone in real time, they talk the chatting to someone on WhatsApp, WhatsApp, WhatsApp, just talking, talking, talking chatting, they can't get enough data enough. They've even the hands are hurting. And I'm serious. Some people's hands are hurting because amount of typing because even you know what is hurting. One is typing. But the other one is, look,
we see the the angle of my hand. There's a problem with the blood flow. Because I'm sad. So if you like these four hours, your hands are going to hurt because the Bloods not flowing properly. Okay, so their hands are hurting and what's up is gilma. But the thing is with, with with those type of monastics, they used to be dealing with the idle talk a lot.
And the believers Allah said, they will stay away from them, they won't be part of them. The other one allows we just said in our Quran is that
life lyase Karuna ilaha illa Allah, they don't remember Allah except a little This is in number one for two of Sudanese they don't remember like say for a little. So it's hard for a monaci to remember Allah. But it's easy for a believer to remember Allah. Okay, that's that's the way that we should not not I want I want you to do one thing which is question let me question myself. And you question yourself and say, Where am I
All of this is where am I? And the obvious one for them was to show alliances, where they really only were alliances with them because of their own personal gains. So let me give an example of this, the progress that Allah has and went on many expeditions. So what would happen is when he would go out to fight, the monastics would not join the believers.
So when a tragedy came about, let's say a certain person was the Shaheed the monastic said, Ah, I'm so glad I never went because I'm not dead. If I had gone then I would be dead.
So when it came to defending Medina, defending the believers, they don't want to give their blood they don't want to give the you know, the energy or the sacrifice to risk their own life. But when the brothers Allah Salaam got some booty, or he got some wealth from the people that they had gone, yeah, that fought with and the progress of the last and then was distributing this wealth amongst the believers. That monastic now says, Yeah, they come to my home for our food foes and now the man, he would say, Oh, if only I could have been with them, then I would have also become very successful. What's his success, his success is less than his success is money, money, dollar dollar,
pound pound, this is in the Quran, surah number four, and number 73 is a lacuna column. Takumi, nicoma, binomo. They said he will say it as if there was no friendship between you the way he will just say, so when you have difficulty, he's happy. He wasn't part of it. But when you have a game, he then says, oh, if I was with them, then I would have also gained something. Now think about our society. Think about our Muslim countries. Think about how many people are making the real sacrifice. And people, you know, so behind Allah, there are certain activists within our communities, they're fighting really hard for the Muslims in various ways. But you know what,
they're few in number. And nobody really bothers about them. When they make some headlines, or they do something really good. That's when others will come and be part of the Yeah, I know him. Yeah, yeah. I'm part of a he's linked to me. Yeah, he's my father's cousins, sisters, me sees, you know, relatives, neighbors, whatever. Okay. So he's also react to me, and I'm part of this, okay. They weren't, they weren't part of the credit.
And there are many lives in LA who are there for the credit. They're not there for the work. And this is one of the key things that are lost in the believers are there for the real work, that therefore the real mission, where the monastics they're there for their own personal gains. The other one that they will do is treachery. The Quran talks about which is they will say to you, I'm with you, I'm with you. Yeah, yeah.
But when that time comes, they're gone. So many times they did this with the believers for example by loggerhead so lots and lots and comes out with 1000 men
1000 men on route to the battlefield. One of them says, Hey, you know, our what we said was not listened to we wanted to fight within Medina, these youngsters said they want to fight outside Medina. And you know, the decision was made with something that we were not happy with, we're going to protest and we're going to go back to Medina 300 of them left and they came back to Medina
700 were left to fight on their own in the Battle of word. The same happened in many other sort of, you know, battles and things. And what the Quran talks about is this treachery which is they will say that I'm with you, I'll deliver. I'll give you out there for you, man. Um, you got your back, man, I got your back. You know, they'll say one of these exuma fam, I got your back on this. And when the time comes gone,
and they won't be there, and then they'll make excuses. And they're really good at making so many excuses. When the Battle of Dubuque happen, many of them made many excuses. And they said O Messenger of Allah, we couldn't go out because all this is problem and I wasn't feeling too well and where there was too much and it was too hot and it was baking hot. You know, Allah said, Allah said tell them that the heat of jahannam is even more more hot. Tell them so let's imagine Allah you know the business you know to take care of the business I couldn't come because of business.
Have you not got those Muslims today?
You know, you don't listen to me. I have you got those Muslims today. Give me an example. I know give me example. How many of them cannot even come for Juma because of the business.
Let's be honest. Let's Let's be
honest about it. How many Muslims who say we're Muslims and they are their body, man, I'm not saying that the type one again is very important. I'm not saying that type one benefits here. But May Allah forgive all of us. They've definitely got the type two hypocrisy inside the hour they say is when it comes to Juma time they say, because of a business,
business, you know.
And they and they carry on doing business every week.
And all they have to do is close business on a Friday for one hour.
And I'm telling you this, I want all of you listen to this as many shopkeepers as you know, tell them
if you close business for one hour on a Friday, for yourself and for all your employees,
the last that you're going to have alasa which will give you that in another way. Okay, so for example, on a Friday, what you could do is let's say if you are opening a business,
let's say most most of the shops will open like from 10 o'clock to six o'clock. I tend to six, right. So the opening and some of them opening seven days a week, la how La La quwata illa. Allah Yeah, it's kind of a, I think that's also another thing that they need to learn because most of the shopkeepers who open seven days a week and who come seven days a week, they don't have much of a life. They are drained there are finished after one but my thing to them is, if you open 10 to six, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, on Friday, you open let's say for example 10 to one o'clock, then you open from two o'clock to seven o'clock when our external Friday or you open every day, 15
minutes extra or half an hour extra. What I mean is to make up for the last you might have a Juma Allah will give you another way but you don't have to have your shop open on a Friday at that time it's up to you what time you open it. Now if you actually put a sign there for all your customers to know that on a Friday we close from one o'clock to two o'clock or from 1230 to one third whatever the time is okay? If you if you close from that all new customers will know that you do this I don't care if even if they're in a non Muslim society if they all did it it will be known that you know what, it's a it's a Muslim, you know, prayer time and they're going to pray. Now at that time. I
know what the guys thinking, oh my god, at that time from one o'clock to two o'clock I lost I lost Yeah, this many pounds they went to that shop they went to the Hindu shop and these other shop and the Christian shop this guy shop and I and Allah Allah lost this one is calculating is burning him he's sending him Juma is that come on? Man finish finish. Finish. Yeah, he wants to get out. But you know what?
You got to think of it in a different way.
You think in a different way. Allah xojo never never wrote my never wrote there is from my shop between one o'clock and two o'clock on a Friday and Alhamdulillah they will get the result from somewhere else right. Number two is Allah said in the Holy Quran.
He said either New Delhi salatu salam ala ala declared like
Allah said you know leave your commerce and trade when the advent of Juma has has gone and you know, come to come to the hookah come to the remembrance of Allah.
And Allah azza wa jal, that means that if I'm trading at that time, the business I will do between the Juma time is going to be negative money.
So this is what you need to tell them it's not plus money. If Allah told you don't do business come and pray and you didn't business at that time, the money you make and the money you end up time is going to kill you business of is going to bring your business money down. The burqa is going to go away, the blessings are going to go away. And that's why you're going to have a business going down, you will see that the money has gone up.
But Baraka will go down when the Baraka goes down, the blessings go down, then you're in minus, as in I'm not saying a minus on the red but I'm saying you've made less money that day then you make more money, and these people need to understand this. Anyway. The moon outfits were those who would you know who who do this. Another one was
that they were people when it came to an urban maroof and niyang Cup when it comes to calling towards good and preventing others from evil. They will do the exact opposite.
They would call towards evil and they will prevent the good and this is mentioned in another there are many several several references in the Holy Quran.
You will find quite a lot in Surah Baqarah surah Emraan Surah Nisa about the benefit to the man either you'll find out what monoket Sutra Toba suta anzahl. They're full of references of the monastics
One of the ones alignment is the one I've just said now, which is when it comes to calling towards good and preventing from evil. They do the exact opposite. So this is sort of Toba surah number nine and number 67 element if you're calling wollmann. I forgot Baba Hummingbird Allah says the hypocrite men and the hip are good men women, they are from one another. So Allah Allah mentioned here hypocrite men and hypocrite women. Yeah Muna bill Mancha they call each other they will call towards evil when how nasty mouth and they will prevent good way of doing idea when they hold their hands back from spending this law financier whom they left a law law left them in Illuminati in a woman
farcical. The be the hypocrites? Surely they're the rebellious ones. Now, look, Allah said, rebellious is a said, Moon African men, when African women I told me this year, those Muslims amongst us
the guy is calling through his smartphone is calling her towards, you know, fun time they're gonna have they're not married, they're gonna have fun time together. She's also calling him to a fun time they're going to have together without marriage. This is calling themselves to something which Allah hasn't allowed them. If his marriage and his halali does not marriage, then it's not going to be halal. So they're calling each other. And the people who tell them say, Hey, listen, man, you know, it's haram to have this kind of relationship. You know, if you don't do this, you know, it's better for you to get mad. They say who you are, you got to enjoy your own life, leave me alone. You know,
you're this, you're that? No, they do the exact opposite. Instead of calling towards God, they now see the evil something which allows them Allah has made haram or he has made something which is illicit something which they shouldn't do in an unlawful way according to the religion, they see that as something that is pleasurable, and it's fine for them to do it.
And they will condemn the people who start to stop them from doing this. So they do the exact opposite of what allows or that has said, How many Muslims amongst us have we got
who when it comes to drinking, gambling,
when it comes to fornication, when it comes to adultery, when it comes to illicit relationships, when it comes to going towards drugs, when it comes to gangs, when it comes to fighting amongst one another just for just for you know, a name on the streets when it comes to vandalizing when it comes to you know mugging others stealing from others cheating from other visa people who
have Muslim names.
These are people who have Muslim names. They are born Muslims. They are people who sometimes will come to the masjid even if he means once a year or even means a couple of times in a year. They might turn to Him Tomasi. And even if even if they don't come to a Masjid, if you ask him, What are you what religion Do you follow? He will say what
is almost not follow Islam? Almost and I follow Islam or I'm a Muslim, right? Now, those are the ones May Allah azza wa jal guide us and allows me to guide them say I mean, these are the ones who are tied to when I feels. And what happens is now realizing that like my brothers, and my sisters, they cause a lot of problems for us Muslims, the ones who are trying to be good Muslims, the ones who are trying to fulfill the man, those of us who are trying to make our Eman complete, they give us a you know, back. Now, the other way to look at these as some of you might think, well, let's let's kind of, you know, sideline them.
You know, you probably say Ma'am, is it? Is it okay for us to say that they're not Muslims? No, you can't do this. See, this is this is the difference between us and between many others out there is that we're not going to call them non Muslims, we're not going to say they've left a man. We don't we're not going to do that.
But I'll give you an example of how to see them. Once I had
some Jehovah's Witnesses that came to my door, like they come to your door as well.
And they started to preach their things. I was preaching my thing. And from a long conversation, they said that they're members of the movement. You know, most you know, pretty much everyone lives up to the standards that they have, because anyone who doesn't live up to the morals and the behaviors of Jehovah's Witness, then they will exclude them from being a Jehovah's Witness and I
And then he started to point towards me and say, Well, you know, Muslims don't do that, right. So we've got some bad Muslims amongst ourselves who do bad things like I just explained.
And I said to him, I said, No, there's a big difference between me and you. I said, We care. For the Muslims who have gone bad amongst us, we care for them, we still love them. And we care for them, I said, the difference between me and you is this.
I said, if we were on a ship, let's say we've gone from a ship from here to Australia or something, it's a long journey. And we're on two ships, we've got a ship, and you got a ship. And you set off, we set off, right. And during the course, what happens is, some of the people on the ship, they become sick.
And they become really ill. And they can't, you know, help us on the ship. They don't cook for us on the ship, we have to give them food, which we cook, but they don't cook. And they also don't you know, steer the ship. They don't help with anything on the ship. They don't help mending the ship, they don't help sailing the ship. They don't help with us with anything, but they're just sick people on the ship.
I said As for you, you're throwing them off the ship. You're saying hey, then I'm done. I'm good. You know, I'm saying no, like, the people who are not not doing us any good. So let's just throw them off the ship. As for us, we keep them on board until we reach the destiny, even though they have not helped us. But we will still keep them on board because we care for them.
Now, again, it's not a session to try and you know, bash any other sector sector of Christianity or what is not that the I'm just giving you a difference, which is for you to understand that the Muslims amongst us who are not living up to the Islam that they're supposed to live up to, we don't exclude them, but we make dua for them. And we give them power, we call them towards the towards, you know, the proper Islam, and we have to care for them. Because one day in their lives, you see these, you see these non practicing Muslims, suddenly something hits them.
And so why don't like, you know, when I, when I go abroad, I get asked a question. You know, the common question, they always asked this question, how are the Muslims in London?
How is Islam in London? How is Islam in England? And I say this, and I give this answer I say, the one who comes to Islam in London comes properly. And the one who goes away from his stand goes properly,
fully 100% no turning back, you know, saying like, not me not turning back. But wonder, Is he the one who comes in Suvarna you look at the youth that come to Islam, they're like, yeah, brah you know, we're gonna pray we're gonna do this. We'll go Come lay, we'll go Ramadan, let's do this. The one who comes in comes in proper with understanding how to read this book, I'm gonna go and ask this question. I want to go check this out. I'm gonna know the one who comes in comes in. And the one who goes out? Yeah, he is gone. He's gone. He's like, Need for Speed. You know, I'm saying like, he's not looking back. But Subhanallah you also see, those of them who have gone something sometimes hits
them, and they come back. And when they come back, so a lot of them come back, all the way. Right, they come back with, you know, suddenly, they might have gone to prison, they might have you know, got into trouble. They might have come to an illness, they might have had a family member who's who's you know, who's been lost. They might have had a crisis in the in the financial thing. They might have had, you know, whatever, fight whatever they might be, but sometimes, you know, Allah gives guidance ever, and sometimes they don't have a tragedy, but they still come to Islam because of some understanding that they got, which is Al Hamdulillah. Some of them come purely because of
Dawa. Somebody met them gave them Dawa, and told them that, you know, call them towards the proper way. And they came and hamdulillah that they with us and they witness in a good way. My point to you is that
if you want to understand why we're in the situation we're in is because you know, with all these themes, reading, one of the things that we did last week was a man Yes, but you won't understand last week's one unless you understand this week's one as well, which is we have to also try and survive.
Try and try and get out of our system, the hypocrisy or the newfangled elements of things that take us away from that. Amen. Okay. And another one is the monastics had is that they didn't want to spend with what Allah gave them. Okay, they didn't want to give to others, they won't give others time. They won't give others money. They won't give others things that Allah gave them. That's one of the problems they don't like sharing. Okay. And another one that had amongst themselves is that they used to spread false information really quickly.
So anytime they have information coming to them, they will just spread it straightaway without
even thinking about the consequences of what might happen or what might come to the believers, let me give you an example of this. So Surah Surah, number 33. And number 60, a Lazarus says, you know, they have a disease in the heart. And one of the biggest diseases of the heart is that they haven't fully attached themselves to Islam. Okay, they haven't finished essence of Islam. And they will carry on, you know, just spreading information, spreading information, they like the people who are loose. In fact, the prophets are allies and talked about the real believer. And he said, Swan, Allah, He said about the believer that he's very strong in the roots in the ground. So when the wind
comes, the wind might blow above, but like you're tall grass, the wind will blow above the grass will bend over. But then the grass eventually will stand up again when the winds gone. But there's certain you know, plants and things that you have, when those strong wind comes, it will eat it will even pluck them out of the ground. So that's the difference between a believer and those who have hypocrisy that we've given, you know, we've got an example of that in the in the Sunnah. So what they will do is, for example, when news comes without verifying information, without understanding what might happen with it, they will just spread it spread the news, and unfortunately, what those
people for amongst us, amongst us as well today, you know, any news comes, anything comes in WhatsApp, it's like, oh, man, I'm gonna fold this to another tent. Oh, man, if I follow this film, they're gonna say, wow, you know, I, I'm the one who gave it to them no credit, right? I'm the one who gave it to them without thinking, is inflammation true? Did he, you know, is it true? Is he talking about someone which I shouldn't be spreading? Is this something which I would rather get back to the source and say, Where did you get it from, without any of this, they will just spit it out there. And it's not just on WhatsApp or whatever on the phone, even with the you know, in real
time, someone's told him something, they just want to spread it.
So we know we have we have that trait amongst them. Now, one other one that they have amongst them is that they want to cause mischief on the earth, you see do not fill out a lot with a wish to do nothing. So they want to they want to go out and they don't care if they cause damage to people damage to others damage to property damage, livestock, you know, they don't mind they do this. Unfortunately, again, one of the one of the traits amongst them that they have, you know, that they have amongst these people that they will do that, I mean, anytime we can see the same, we can see the same thing amongst these people. And the Quran talks about
when it comes to
when it comes to being generous, they have a problem. They don't want to give much. They don't want to you know, when it comes to raising money funds for certain projects, they won't they won't give Unless, of course, like I said to you that they want to make a name for themselves. So all these things they have amongst today's theme was about Ninja, it was about hypocrisy. And final words that I want to say to everyone is that we you know, we should not go walk around saying that, Oh, I'm a true believer, no, but no one has the right to say that I'm a true believer, we should say that we're doing our best to believe we should do that. At the same time. When it comes to me analyzing
others, I should try and find the faults in me. Okay, this is one last important thing that I want to say to you before you leave this session, because some of you might, you know, some of them might watch and some of you my league in my scene thing, man, I feel good today, man. I feel like a believer and I'm saying, you know, I'm not lying. I'm not cheating. I'm not doing this. And that's the type of arrogance as well. That's the way shaytan gets you as well, because he makes you believe that you better than others. No, we don't do that as as people who are doing their best to live up to stem, we will walk away from here and we'll try and think Well, what's the what's the deficiency
I have in me one of the things I'm doing wrong in myself. And that's how the Sahaba always check themselves. But when we look at someone from amongst the Muslims who's got a problem with nifa, type two Nephi Okay, you know, type two, as I said, when you see that, you should first think what is the good thing that he has in his in his life, because even those who have type two, type two hypocrisy, they've got some good in them as well. They also have got good traits, I've got good morals, they've got some good behavior. So look at that and say, well, hamdulillah You know, my brother or my sister, although they're bad in these, they might cheat sometimes in my life, but he's got this good
thing, good quality inside him. Whatever the good quality might be, identify those things and identify within myself. Bad things that I might have, like say that Amara de la Rondo, just to make sure that he doesn't fall into this trap of shaytan. He would get on to the member and he would count he would count
Some of his deficiencies on the member who say, oh man, you think you're great. You don't even do this and you don't do that and you fail to do this either he would reprimand himself in front of people on the member just to make sure that he doesn't fall into the trap of faith and thinking he's better than others. So So guys when we you know, I know you've heard all of this, but when we you know, seriously when we think about the oma when I'm abroad for them, when I make you know, give them dialogue, when I bring them close to Islam, we don't want to look down on them. We want to see them as our Sikh brothers and sisters but at the same time, we're sick in some ways as well. You
know, but we want to we want we want to rectify ourselves, but we want to also get them to rectify themselves. And you know, the funny thing I remember
I remember when I was demanding the 10 pack and mustard
one day you know, this this elderly Marshal this muscle he comes up to me you know, Mashallah this muscle is in the masjid is praying in the masjid five times a day? He's like, 60 years old. Okay. He's passed away now, Rahim Allah, may Allah have mercy on him. So he came up to me Next the radiator. We just waiting for the seller to sign in, said the man, the man.
He said, These people he said, I went up to one person answers as a team. Why don't you pray five times a day?
And he said to me, why are you telling me this?
Because you might work on a paper, don't they see the highlights of the crime? Don't they see the Hadees Don't they know what's gonna happen to them? If they don't pray? Why are they doing this?
So I said, I said How long have you been praying five times a day?
She said I've been praying like 20 years. So hamdulillah Mashallah, I said if I came to you 21 years ago
if I came to you 25 years ago, when you were like, you know, 35 years old, okay. And I said to you, Hey, why don't you pray five times a day you're a Muslim? Why don't you do look at Apple and look at the code in that what would you say to me? He said I wouldn't like it.
said would you want to listen to me? Would you want to walk away said I'd want to walk away. I said tell us said you understand or is he right? So he got the message. And that's all good. I understand like there might have been a point in my life that I never wanted to hear all of this drama was a Muslim as well so well as we'll forgive all of us, and as inshallah next week after inshallah have any questions by the way? Nobody questions?
No, okay, shall I see you next week.
