This is good.
So this is the first is reported by the man most women his authentic collection from hubiera radi Allahu anhu from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when we say by non Muslims authentic collection, let's get into some controversial issues ranked often.
What does it mean when we say authentic so that means that everything in the book of Muslim is considered authentic that everything in the book of Muslim like the book of McQuarrie should act upon it does not necessarily mean that there is complete certainty of everything in the book of Muslim was adopted by the prophet sallallahu Sunnah.
No, it does not mean complete certainty that each and every word in the book of Muslim was uttered by the prophet sallallahu Sallam certainty is in further biodata quitters, basically, recurrent recurrently or daughter's recurrent abundance, which is the recurrent abundance of narratives and even if in every layer of the chain of narration, this infers certainty, and we're talking here about
the complete certainty of the article This is actually this has come from the province of the law in seven. So, that is Toronto, however, authentic it says, that you have to act upon, because not only that, we have to act upon certainty but we have to act upon greater likelihood or propensity and as well, is a greater likelihood that every can be used up ism Bukhari and Muslim is for the purposes of this is the agreement of the scholars of Islam that have Ethan Bukhari and Muslim are found the prophets of Allah someone meaning that we should act upon them, meaning that we should act upon them in all matters in matters of faith and knowledge and practice. in all matters, we should act upon
those Appleby. Is it logically possible that something is not from the prophet SAW or someone else it is logically possible, therefore, certainty cannot be inferred even though it's a controversial issue on some of the scholars including different American law said that the reason quantium Muslim infer certainty, but the majority of also the human the same surgeon thing could only be improved by throw out to the hobbyist that is singular report, reports of by less than thought or less than the streetcars the abundance in every layer of the chain of narration does not infer certainty, meaning that we cannot be 100% certain each honey enquire Muslim, came from the prophet SAW some, but we
most certainly by the agreement of the scholars, we must have to act upon each and every party and Muslim because the deen is not only because transmission of the deen is not only established through certainty but also through the greater likelihood
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam sent his, you know, viceroys his, you know, aides to different places throughout the peninsula, Yemen and other places. And he instructed them to teach the Muslim, the people that were converted to Islam and instructed them to feature the people then put converters not about the dean. Is it possible that they may have forgotten something that may have relayed something in a way that is different from someone or someone other than spoken with? Yes, because there are infallible people. So this is an American that should be important to address.
Particularly when you're debating particularly when we're debating with non Muslims.
certainty is in front of the Bible program and the by the multilateral bodies. So when there is a matter that is in Bukhari and Muslim,
you have to know that this should not be your ultimate fight, your ultimate Fight of the ultimate debate is not this particular Hadith.
For the students of knowledge of the Muslim seat of knowledge, there is no room to deny a Muslim but in a debate, because now when we when we're debating Islam versus not Islam, it's a completely different story. We're only we're only debating that which is certain in Islam versus non Islam
is a friend to some of you about like your knowledge or something, okay. So when we say Muslim, it
means that all the scholars agreed that this is an authentic hadith, meaning we have to act upon it.
Although it may not infer complete certainty

there are some problems in the translation.
But rather B host leaves of a lot of brothers, but rather be both slaves of a lot of brothers. So he's not telling them to be slaves of Allah is telling them those slaves have a lot about a lot be brothers.
Now so the next segment of the Hadith starts here, which is the one that we will talk about today. become Muslim is the brother of a Muslim and Muslim awkward Muslim lie of limbo. What is Oh, what is the blue one I drew. A taco Shara Mara

in basically relating this concept

Okay, so we said that the first part we talked about is about the transactions benefits of transactions. And we said that this applies to Muslims and non Muslims, according to the majority, at least according to all of them justice applies to justice apply. So is there extra ethics in transactions, majority of Muslims, but according to
the only have five Muslims, meaning that you're not down is good, it's recommended to use the same as
with every one
of the Muslims, because if
you're not bound by them, it's like pirate escapism justice. So that higher standard of justice, you're not to use it with everyone. Last time, we said we will use one of two things, the lower one of two things, you know, or
when it comes to the threshold, when there are new things that we love it just this amplifying device, we cannot have
the norms of the people, which is called

When someone said this, when we took a road from someone, without his knowledge, the sneaking into someone's they were, you know, travel, and we sneak into someone's tent, and he took his rope without his knowledge. He came back, and he didn't find his role. So he was sort of
dismayed by that. And the process was on site in his face.
So here, even though it is the norm, that's fine, everybody does it.
People enjoy it
extremely scary that
people can actually sue for these things.
Because it was scary and sometimes humiliating.
So which one over writings in this case?
ethics will work.
Okay, so going back,
a Muslim is the power of a Muslim, Muslim, Muslim, is the brother of a Muslim is, you know, there are different types of there are different types of brotherhood. There is the Brotherhood in the years.
There is the Brotherhood, in humanity. There is the Brotherhood in the religion, that the greatest one in the sight of Allah, the most consequential one, as far as right and why is another one.
That is, you know, because this is the allegiance that you have chosen yourself, it was not forced on you.
It is an allegiance that you have chosen for yourself and this is the one that matters the most
But it doesn't mean that other forms of brotherhood, brotherhood.
Humanity is a form of brotherhood,
the process of
have the proper vibe which is basically despite the fact that they rejected
the general product of humanity.
So, a Muslim is the brother of Muslim he does not oppress him nor does he fame em nor does he lie to him, he does no question
no question this is quite clear right.
means we can question all the time, because sometimes we have a little bit of contrast and awareness of oppression you know, so as long as you know
in terms of the subject of oppression, this my wife I feel depressed is my you know, is my kid
was some people think this way people think that depression applies to the stranger, but if it is a family member, if it is your chocolate, childhood, whatever it

terms of the types of oppression
you could go into these
like in front of you, if you're 70 in the life, you have taken my time without my permission, my turn without my permission, you don't have to poke me in the eyes to be oppressive. There are lots of things that if

awareness, watchfulness, all of us,
so that you come up with judgment, and you don't owe anyone anything, you bring in all of your persona. And you will not realize you know, you just keep in mind you're not most of us are not that much anyway.
So, oppression is not a person. So, think of all forms of oppression is anyone, any person
and professional also varies with, you know, basically what is expected of you
Her mother does not mean that you were
But this is where the content
is what is expected here is this and then you fall short of it, that is oppression basically
failing delivering your obligations towards someone that is
because home is the opposite of what justice. So, if you have, if you fail to deliver your obligations
towards a person, then you have fallen short from justice translates into injustice.
So, the site is going to come to one slaughter is a form of oppression, oppression is much larger than that is why we usually

If you fail him, if you let him down, then he sure is
accepted acceptable legit you down in a situation where you wish for law support, when you when you truly wish any of us support. Vice versa whenever you support your brother in a situation, what it is is, you know are his dignity is violated his honor is undermined whenever you support your current situation like this except that a lot of support here in a situation where you would wish for less support.

is a huge reason to tell your brother have something lying to him when
it's an act of treason to lie to your brother, while he's believing while he is
basically reminding us of the honor system, you know,
and if you're lying to him that will cause so much harm. So much disruption to this honor system in the society, the societies that go on the honor system are prosperous society, they are virtuous societies, you see the huge problem here, and hopefully this
gets released, let's hope to have that, you know, in the eastern United States, because there's like a large percentage of immigrants, that our system is going out the door, you you move a little bit inward, towards the Midwest, and so on, everything gets done over the phone, because the heart of our system is still alive.
So, it is the trust that people will not will not lie will not
force things, they will not lie, and they'll be honest.
So, everything is done on the honor system, when you lose that our system
is a problem, you know, today was a seven
minute speech that
was corrupted word, paper Muslim, you know, these are things that we have to basically
we have to address them, we have to recognize that there is a problem, there is a crisis, there is an issue and we have to address them, because without being without having the courage to address them.

It is very Muslims, that

Okay, so, anyway, let's move on to the next one. So what I have

there is certainly no need to further emphasize the importance of the art, you know, is, is

Why did the Prophet repeat
in particular, he did not repeat.
Repeat. So you have this this despise or to hold the contempt? He did not repeat betray you?
because it is the
Is the basically most connected manifestation to the root cause of all of the problems
tend to despise your brother is because
because of your physical arrogance, prophets of
arrogance is about the rejection of the truth and despising of the people eliminating the people looking down the people that is good. So, that was the shortest, the shortest distance between those manifestations have the root cause of the problem is between the space and
So, when you're when you're despising people, when he inspires people, when you look down on people when you
do this, in turn, this will cause you to do all the rest and it is the the closest manifestation to the root cause, which is the arrogance in one's heart

And this is very important to notice because it tells you all of the qualities that are most conducive to destruction and the qualities that are most conducive to success. So the qualities that are most conducive to success success is by actually we compress the oxygen
we explain what this means, and the other one is

Okay, so now I ask you a question
look we can oppress
so what do you stand
for if we're talking about you know, strong and big and
you know people used to hear the his footsteps in
concert tempted to basically
pretend weakness so that you pretend to make someone for granted Gemini You're acting like this that is also for
okay. So power was not profit from someone who was actually mentioning that the qualities that are most conducive to destruction in the qualities that are most conducive to survival. So, the prep that we can oppress
are more likely to survive and make it the devil
to some extent,
these are the qualities that are conducive to destruction. However, however, you could have those qualities, you know, some of those qualities not certainly all of them.
But you can have
these qualities that are mentioned as part of metabolic syndrome.

Like serve the weaken

So you're using it, only you're using your strength, you're using your power,
your charisma, all of your all of those qualities, the qualities of strength, you're using them.
Otherwise, you're not using it, you're allowed to use them for your personal advancement.
All of the things
about, you know, truth, goodness,
all these qualities or qualities that are praiseworthy?
it is given enough because it is evil to destroy you.
Evil to destroy you to the spicier Muslim brother because you would have not despise the Muslim brother. How do you love in a arrogant, arrogant
is even enough to destroy anyone
in the back of the air
around the entirety of Islam is available for another Muslim, his blood, his property and his honor his love its property, the squint obvious, loving property of your Muslim brother. But we said when the Prophet
talked about loving property, but he talked about honor, in fact, you know, anything that will upset your brother is how we set the example of you know, frightening your brother those cracks.
So basically, this is the psychological emotional aspect of a human being. Because human The human being is not made out of matter only
matter when we have this, they mentioned that people of this world will never, we'll never be able to see will never be able to perceive our spiritual dimension, even with this world are so blinded by the 3d
it is only
3d, that's who you are as a human being. But there is not a force dimension, which is a spreadsheet which
can be the sometimes cannot see the field, see if they can't see it, because it is there, the private have been able to see it.
Or they have just grown to mind that they can see it like
if you imagine a world that has only two dimensional, and you speak to the Asians of this world,
they will never believe me, Kevin, basically can see the
two dimensions on the
money is here, people that are only believe in three dimensions,
only believe in mountain can now calculate the spiritual aspect.
So that is the psychological aspect. So
how do Muslim
if you are three people, two of you should not
talk in private to each other, or should not whisper to each other. Because that would sound in the third, that would sound in the third. So you're hurting, that's hurt, you know, does not have to be physical. And it does not have to be the surgery of the rights, financial rights or anything. It's just causing psychological pain, inflicting the most emotional trauma hurting Saturday.
So that is forbidden. How
about you know, when whenever two people are in the presence of each other, and two of them speak the same language and then they speak that language that is not normal, the third applies
perfectly applies perfectly applies. So basically, you're saying to the third
step, it is your comfort zone, this is this is all of this, all of these Excuses, excuses are unacceptable. Wait until you
wait until the third leaves if you have to explain something that you cannot explain or take permission and then try to explain it to the third person and you know, how to explain it to him in whatever
you need. And then
because I just can't express it in English. So he is explaining sorry,
you take permission.
But this is just like a form of
or hurting your brother that concept we can never get people to understand it.
So, what do you tell people? What do you tell people that there are, we have we have limitations we as Muslims, we are talking about people that are coming from completely different paradigms and that is why
a lot of people are doing a lot of effort to describe the size that he ality and just give them a flavor so you're you're just like, everything like everybody else, with an Islamic flavor to their supposed sparkling beer sister
Everybody looks scarf.
Mature living life like usual. You're not understanding that we're talking about two completely different value systems. Yes, they do have our lifetimes. But that is absolutely fine, even if even they are valid value system sometimes overlaps with atheists, because we believe in that
we believe that human beings are able to discern between right and wrong. So yes, there is overlap a lot of times, but yes, there is conflict, there are major differences that are not reconciled, that are not reconciled. So, we have limits for freedom speech, we have limits.
So, when you make like a deity, our freedom of press and freedom of speech, we don't have to argue to this, we are minutes. So, it isn't so obvious, even rationally, logically, it is so obvious that the criminals
that it is criminal, to chase people in their personal lives and uncover their personal life, life, even if they're public figures, but my personal life as my parents might not because I'm gonna have to be followed by contrast, nosy press, people,
it is my personal life, you know, yes, you could watch my, you know, your style of governance, you could critique my
That's fine if you're a public figure, public figure. But why as a public figure, do you have attack my dignity? Did you invade my personal life,
freedom of speech, freedom of press, capital, we don't have
we have to say that no power profit
into the concept of the concept of dignity, the concept of honor, that we don't violate people's our
freedom of speech,
or anything else, if you think those things override our value system, you're taking different deities, besides,
they don't override our value system, which is, which is pretty sad, because sometimes people are not really, they're not.
They're not used to the idea of the different phases of the design has its different phases that people might have set for so attacked and hated by some people, they have done mistakes or errors, absolutely, everybody has their mistakes and errors, but because they particularly do not address the issue of the value system, we have a different lifestyle, we are different than we have a different lifestyle, and we do not need to give in and we should not give in to the
lifestyle, the forum lifestyle that is imposed on us. That idea is not
acceptable by people who want the whole world
to basically to be one color for flavor, only had to have one voting system.
So they, they have their they have their issues, they have their mistakes, they have their errors, but you know, ultimately, they were inviting the people to
to think of Islam has
come in its entirety without picking and choosing them to recognize the differences between the two systems. And they highlight many of the differences between the two systems. And that was not acceptable for people from within the Muslim countries outside.
But it is true that when we're talking about two different value systems, and like I said the overlapping with the overlap, you point this out these eight years, they're either there is an overlap, but when they vary from each other, or differs from each other.
Then you have to point out that there is an reconcilable diversion here or departure from the to set between the two systems and then asms them
Hi, we have to be deeply rooted in my system, I have to know who I am first, this will actually enable us to be better contributors to human
to the human experience of large to the human existence, human civilization, we will be better contributors, if we know who we are deeply rooted in our value system that we understand, recognize the risk
and then contribute to other people and help out
work for would be the entirety of humanity. So as long as we are last,
as long as we are basically in the dark for looking for a value system that when we have our own, we don't understand that for your yard, sort of modifying doors, mutilated doors, sort of matches,
that much work can sometimes be disastrous, because when you pick and choose like,
Muslims or Muslim countries, sometimes particularly when you know liberals and Muslim countries, what they take out of liberalism is basically the lifestyle their via lifestyle,
the haircut, you know,
dressing styles, some, you know, partying, you know, in indulgence in certain things in certain libraries, certain enjoyments that
Europeans particularly are known for, and that is what liberalism means
when when it has to do with self determination or it has to do with fighting political corruption with has to do with you know, the right people to electing their, their governors and so on. That is not primarily that it is it is because of the type system, these are people that are lost, they are lost to value systems, they have not really learned about their own, they reached out to another value system, they could not really reach out all the way. And they got lost in the middle. So they became
So, yeah, that will bring us to the end of this.
Speaking to your brother, a lie, he believes
if I'm saying something, he knows, I'm just joking, I'm not telling the truth. Nobody here thinks I'm saying
joking. Joking, is basically known to be a joke. So everybody knows that it is a joke, that you're not using a certain group of people.
So you're not talking about these people who say some people are
so like, generic group of people, a specific group of people.
But certainly, once you start mentioning certain groups of people, then that is the permission here.
With the permission here is because of the mockery.
age network, there's a lot of recent celebrities were there.
And sometimes we have to, you know, warm voting systems against them because this person is crying towards
there's Muslim entertainers.
They've already taken off taking their own selves. So would it be us then we're gonna stay away from this. Are we also doing the same thing
to point out that even behavior particularly if it is public and non private, that is fine. As much as you can although the in the past our stars also have pointed out you know, doers because if someone is particularly spreading corruption that they need to be pointed out
First of all, you know that even the statements and you can sometimes you can link it you can say, No, I don't believe this is right, you guys can find this person. But this is what he says 123 and four, and I don't believe that exposing our youth to these ideas is the right thing. So here it is not an assault on the person, but you're pointing out the person because he needed to. So unless you really need to leave the personnel and talk about the issues that are the key objective. But if you do need to find the personnel of let's say, therapists, they wanted to find someone who really, like
you do want to say no, I have these issues.
