Today inshallah. The Hadith is reported by the man Muslim from Hawaii rupiah camino de Leon. He said that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said
do not see him.
As Calif is two words, there is there's a continuation for the families after the Prophet you don't know c and
d is not
the sincerity if we have to translate the heart into one word, we will select sincerity and we will go over why we selected sincerity, the sincerity
that then the Sahaba
of the prophets of Salaam finale many of us Allah we said we'll see how for whom mercy towards whom
the law he when he kitabi whatever. So, lady, one Muslim Mina wire matching, he said towards a lot his book is messenger
the leaders amongst the Muslims and the Republic the leader is amongst the Muslims and their problem. So, that is a must see how. So, you have to extend the velocity
has book is messenger the leader is amongst the Muslims and the public. So what is not seen in this case? What would be the literal translation of merci ha, if it was not in that context, whenever most he has mentioned, what how do we translate mercy
It would be advice. You know, the literal translation the common literal translation of naseeha is advice to give them a sequel to your brother to give him advice for advisement.
So, should we translate the dmlc has been is about advice, or is about good counsel.
Dean is about good counsel. And they said, for whom or messenger of Allah or towards whom? And he said towards Allah, His Messenger his book, His Messenger is the Imams amongst the Muslims and the public. And how do you get give advice to Allah
then of Islam, it must
Hi in this context does not just mean with counsel, it means something beyond good counsel. The word and I'll see hi itself in Arabic has so many shades, implications connotations that it would be impossible to translate it into one word, it would be impossible to translate into one word. Therefore we have to understand what it means. And we have to use amongst ourselves as Muslims because no one word will do it justice No, we're gonna see.
Bobby said maaseiah is about irata to higher in value,
in order to find a little guide, it is about wanting wishing for them good welfare, for others, for for others, wishing good for others, wanting good, harboring good for others, good feelings for others.
And the word itself when you get those three letters, the noon sob ha put them together, they usually refer to clarity, purity, clarity and purity, they refer to police, which is removing something from something. That is why it is said, you know people say Masako Lawson meaning I purified the honey
I removed the honey from the wax and I purified that is masakan acid. So I purified the honey I removed something from something.
So in this sense, the best word to express the meaning it would be sincerity.
Would that you know his sincerity would be enough to use sincerity for law sincerity for his book sincerity for the passenger similarity for the leaders amongst the Muslims. hence there is sincerity for the public. Isn't that enough? Like a good word, because it would match all the five categories. Sincerity for for Allah, absolutely. Sincerity for the book of Allah. Absolutely. But what but sincerity. You know, towards a lot, means sincerity of worship.
sincerity towards the book of Allah. Meaning sincerity, of commitment, sincerity towards the Messenger of Allah, meaning sincerity, of
sincerity of following sincerity towards enmity. muslimeen are the leaders amongst the Muslims and the public means sincerity of good counsel. That is word with counsel. But it is not limited to good counsel. But that is where good counsel is the highest manifestation of sincerity when it comes to the rest of the people to give them a good counsel. That is the highest manifestation of sincerity. Why is a good counsel the highest manifest manifestation of sincerity?
Why is given advice to your brother, the highest manifestation of sincerity for your brother? We'll see how that you harbor nothing but good feelings.
good wishes for your brother comes from the heart.
you show them the best you serve them right? Well, that is all true.
demonstrates an act of love for your brother. But more than love, sincerity.
Why? Because you're doing it for his interest, risking his resentment.
Like I will advise you even you may resent me, but it is for your best interest. So that's the highest manifestation of sincerity. I will still do it you know,
it you know, whenever we yell at our kids, or we you know,
sometimes people spend too This is still not illegal. spanking means
that they say that it is not warranted and not
Children However, most of the psychiatrists and psychologists say that some spanking may not always be harmful.
But if if you spent
Your child for
Don't you harbor love you harbor all the parental love and you know, care and all of the emotions, yet you're doing it for the child's best interest even though the child may resent you,
because the child was not 3d. Imagine how much love you have for him while you're yelling, while you are spanking if you ever do that,
but consult your lawyer.
So, so that is
it is the wish to wish, you know, good for them and saw the person receiving the advice. That is why it's the highest manifestation of sincerity. And that is why that is why it was called mercy. It took the name of sincerity, because it is the highest manifestation of sincerity. And sometimes you may call something after its basis or after whatever this manifestations here we call advice. Merci ha ha after the basis of naziha because it's it stems from sincerity. It comes from sincerity the foundation has to be and devotion and dedication for the person, the more you're given the advice that is given that you're given the right advice with the good intention, you know, with a good
intention, certainly if you're given the advice with a bad intention, or a mediocre and we're not so good intention that it would it's not a manifestation of sincerity for short and does not deserve to be called no see, therefore our righteous predecessors that once normalcy has purely for a while It is no secret. And once it's mixed, painted, stained with any other intense, you know, any other ones. Then it is called Toby rebuking, not
not, not good counsel, not sincere advice.
sincerity for Allah subhanaw taala is known can we will not talk for long about this type of sincerity because we talked about before.
The first thing to know here are the needs of our clients, by their intentions, and for everyone what he intended. And we will talk about the last, you know, many times in our law during our discussion about binary. So we'll see how the laws are done is sincerity of worship, that you glorify in his names and attributes and actions.
his majesty and glory, and then everything
that you always put, you know, well, last
allows will, above yours allows ones above yours allows desires above yours. So what I'll see
is whenever there is a conflict between your craving, and the last one, the laws desire, then you suppress your craving, for allows desire, and you force them to the desire for that which allow desires, and you given precedence over your own desire, and over your own craving. That is no secret that
internal logic is nothing
than anything else, Masia Nikita happen.
To have sincerity for the Papa Papa, what kind of sincerity is that sincerity for a month in sincerity of worship?
law he was, he was, he was method muslimeen Amati Nikita, he for the book of Allah the sincerity of what commitment that he had committed to the book of Allah, committed to the book of Allah, you glorify the book of above, you take care of a book of law in recitation, reading, learning, memorizing, and most importantly, seeking guidance from Okubo ba. And acting upon this guidance that you draw from a book of a law that is the double report.
hour to two feet of terracotta dome today to the death bar of the Korean War is not just contemplation, contemplation could be counted
conflation of the exterior of things, but the number is beyond the fact code. The factor is the contemplation of the exterior. That book is the contemplation of the inner essence of things, and the consequences of acts and so on. So that that was a step up from the factory. So, which is to have deep understanding to seek to have a deep understanding of the book of a loss of power. That is your Laci Harper, the Book of Allah, its mercy, the sincerity of commitment.
I was asked about the merits of the prophecy, he said,
his his manners, his conduct, and his behavior was apparat. So the program was the guide of the behavior of the province and suddenly each and everything that said the same thing, but he added a little bit more variety. And he pointed out that he said, Can I follow Prabhu Solomon, and for him, his behavior was like, an embodiment of the for
your Li Madhava, who was to who mascota your D MANOVA. For those who might suffer whatever pleases the poor, and pleases the prophets of subject. And whenever this pleases the poor, and this, these are the promises of keep in mind that I'm talking here about the poor as if it is,
a living being that is talking to you, and it's these than this please and so on. So he said, whatever pleases the poor and pleases the Prophet, whatever this is the correct, because pleases the Prophet Can I follow your lead in my own Bible, when it was clear to me,
that is having sincerity for the book of Allah, its sincerity of commitment, is sincerity of contemplation, sincerity, of seeking guidance, sincerity of surrendering to the book of Allah, many people fear that when you know that, if they learn more about the book of Allah, they will encounter more obligations and more demands and so on, so forth. So they stay away, out of fear, that surrender may may cause them hardship. And that is basically, you know, that is basically like the someone who has rabies, who sees water, but fears government, but if you if you avoid that water, you die from thirst. So
some people refuse to surrender, feeling that their their happiness is in, you know, the bliss of ignorance, as they say, and ignorance is never bliss.
This is torture.
So as Muslims, our mercy, our sincerity for the book of Allah, it's the sincerity of commitment.
And you think that the book of Allah subhanaw taala. And when you read the book of Allah, think of the, the King of kings, the most glorious, of last time founder, the creator of all things, the one in whose hands is the dominion, the one who created and maintained and sustained the ones who prefer the one who provides for you, the one who took care of you in the womb, the one who sustains you now, he is reaching out to you, the King of Kings is reaching out to you, to tell you about to tell you about the ways to your guidance, to your salvation, to your survival, to your well being in this life and the hereafter. And he, you know, goes to great lengths in describing for you the endings of
the people who did not follow the guidance and the endings of the people who follow this guidance. And he reaches out to you to acquaint you after himself, to tell you about himself to tell you about his names and attributes online is talking to you telling you, he's introducing himself to you. He's telling you about these things or attributes, or his glory and majesty about his actions. He's telling you about your guidance and your guidance and the means to salvation. The means to
all of this in a very compassionate speech. He always addresses you Yeah, you have a VENA Maria, I bet all my servants all you believe, and so on. So what else do you need them to basically surrender to this message from your Lord and read it with with love with compassion was always
with an open heart, not just an open mind, not just the intellectual being invoked or invited to this feast, but the heart should be invited whenever you read the book of Allah, so that it can do it can leave that impact on your heart that is intended by by the recitation of the recitation that is empty,
you know, contemplation that that word, recitation with an absent art
will not do that effect.
So, the commitments for the book of Allah then, the prophet SAW, Selim said whether or Sunni and then the commitment or sincerity of following sincerity of following, you know, that we have, you know, compete in the battle
is the single out as the one worthy version of HIPAA law is the center of the process of selling out as the one where the obedience of human beings is the only one that
should be obeyed without questioning, that should be obeyed and every mother every thing that he said.
And he said, you know,
none of you will attain Eman until a lion, his muscles are important to him than everything else than everything else.
Sincerity for you know, the Messenger of Allah sincerity of following that you extend the Messenger of Allah
means that you cherish his sin, love it and adhere to it and so on and so forth.
in every regard that you always put his, his desire over your desire, even in front of this woman, let us say that
you were invited to
So first is wearing this though
part of the dean
you know, neutral.
And if you say any one of those because some people may have different, you know, conceptions wearing this though.
Is it part of the deen or not? Is it good, better neutral to permissible? And if it is good? Why is it good?
It's good. It's good because it resembles What the?
what are you being rewarded for in here, or trying to follow the Prophet?
Even the way you dress? This is a little bit controversial. But my own take on this and the Discover sentence similar to believe our
signature is most of the scholars would say that this is sort of a double layer. It's basically a habit of the prophet SAW someone that is not part of the that is not prescribed for us, as part of the the, the imama, for instance, the turban
the did all the herbs during the prozone were well yeah, they did. Muslim and Catherine. Yes. The Prophet tell us to wear that amendment, that he asked us to wear them. No, no, he did not. Therefore, it's not part of the dean. But whoever does this out of love for the professor certainly gets rewarded for the love. Not for the film itself.
Because the film itself is not
according to the stronger position, it's not a part of the
well as part of the dean is the white.
Why? And because the dean is not up to us to make it up. You know, the province allows
for casting female otaku for him in fantasy Africa, where why enshrouds you're your death in white, because white clothes are of your best clothes. So why the white color is part of the deal because the purpose was recommended to us. But the mere use of companies the profits use of committees or an amendment or amendment that was used by everyone else. And it was not particularly recommended to us is not part of whoever does it.
For the love of the prophets are seven, they get rewarded for the love, they get rewarded for the love, not for the act itself.
But if you were invited to give a talk at one of the universities, and you feel, you know, because you're you're young and you have zeal and so on, if you haven't, the best thing to do is wear imama. You know, particularly a black turban, and a white tummies. And this is this is the way it is beautiful. The, the height of the prophets of Salaam was the most beautiful hike. The experiment appearance of the problems of London was the most beautiful external appearance. However, there are priorities, there are priorities is the best thing to do to walk into this lecture room with a black turban, right? So
that is down to half of your leg here.
Probably not here. Why Why?
If this, if this causes people who think to get disconnected from you would that would that something that profits or someone would have wanted,
then the profits or some of us to any lay people, even in the picture, their voice, the tone, the voice tone, when so when our becomes the indigent, he asked a lot more data to give him the Qur'an in seven different reservations, so that we can address all of the tribes or even more modalities of reservations that can be addressed all the people with their own violence. So for this commonality, similarity, to break the ice, I speak in your own dialect, so that there is no ice between me and you. And when an hour becomes to him and says, Yeah, Mohamed Ahmed, and he stretches that and raises his voice with it, the prophet SAW, someone says to him, how
he stretches it, and he raises his voice with it, so that the army does not feel, you know, that's part of the beauty and greatness of the province of Southern. So it is not like, you know, I only talk to philosophers, I don't talk to, you know, bandwidth, ignorant Bedouins or I don't come down to the ignorant Bedouins and only, you know, speak sophisticated
sort of intended messages that people have to try to decipher. And that even as Muslims, we try, we think that wisdom is basically those capsules of vague, you know, statements that we have to try to decipher, and so on and so forth. Whereas the speech of the problem was the most beautiful, most simple, straightforward, clear, it resonates with philosophers and it resonates with the regular, you know, man in the street, with everybody, but, but when the bidding comes to him and says, you know, the hammer, the hammer, hammer, then the poses
he is trying, he is not making fun of the bedroom, he's trying to make him feel at home, comfortable amongst these people, where your people don't worry, it's, you know, so your, your tone is not really
it's not gonna be a barrier between you and us, or your way of speaking, we speak like you.
So, in this case, the prophets of Salaam would have cared more about the impact of your lecture, then your external appearance, the impact of your lecture, would you be able to connect with people would you be able to get the message across to the people that is that matters more to the promise of sincerity here in following the preference of someone is to give precedence to what he would have wanted
over what you have, what you may like or what you may think is, you know, masculine, brave, you know, etc.
So that is sincerity for the purpose of the law. And then the I am with a Muslim Nina mantium sincerity for the leaders amongst Muslims and the public. And the process of our seven particularly pointed out the leaders amongst muslims for one reason, because the leaders
you know, whether they're good or not that good, but they get
the oldest always give unfair criticism.
You know, they get fair criticism, but they oftentimes give unfair criticism. Anyone who isn't
position of authority
can people ever agree on anything except a very, very, very few things, that people, you know, sane people would agree on, which is the hole is bigger than the part. And the part is smaller than the whole, you know, can send this in movement are opposites of each other. In a very, very few things people would agree on same people would agree on otherwise people don't agree. So, do they deserve a break for a month, the leaders, the leader is an any anything, you know, the CEO of the company, the Chief Medical Officer of the hospital, you know, the president of the Islamic Center, in the
killing of whichever country, Muslim country, Prime Minister and so on.
They deserve some break what we'll learn things that are clearly wrong and things that are clearly right. But whenever you find a way to give him execuse for the leaders, he gives them an excuse, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said appeals, karate appeal that we may have
you tried to park the people,
why? Because they
they get so much from the people, you know, they are burdened with
the criticism of all the people, whether they do good, or, or bad.
that is why they were given them the purpose of sort of mentioned them separately, because they do have rights on us, as much as they have obligations to leave us with the book of Allah, and the way of his prophets a lot. But they do have rights on us to be forgiving in our assessment in our evaluation, in our criticism, to be objective, to be forgiving, somewhat, somewhat forgiving, and so on. But that does not mean you got to see her for them is just to
forgive them and part of them and to Peter mazzanti, which is to forgive their mistakes and their shortcomings of nausea for them is to extend the good counsel to them is to advise them is to also forbid them from one car, enter leading them to good the Prophet sallallahu
selasa told him to Allah Hinata boo Emery in Muslim and African lion,
Muslim Islamic philosopher dominated lab or Manasa to more or resume whatever happens to me. This Hadith was reported in Muslim cinema Mark Mark from Dubai.
He said there are three things, three things, whoever has them will not will not have a heart that is full of rancor full of hate and resentment, like
what are those these three things that will remove anger? He rancor from your heart? One last word Ahmed is sincerity of action for a loss
to Manasa how to Latin more given good counsel to the people of the people in charge, the people of authority will not give them good counsel. Were the what what is the third one also how to learn more? What resumed American Muslim mean? And to me here to the main body of the Muslims to adhere to the main body of the Muslims.
So here's the main body of the Muslims takes us to the last point here which is naseeha for the public.
How do you give no secret to the Muslim public? It is very simple. The prophets of Salaam says
he may or have boo.
One of you will not attain belief until he loves for his brother, that which he loves for himself.
That is the golden rule. And that's it. And if that is truly if that is truly how you feel. It was for you to have in your heart for each and every one of your brothers. You wish for them that would that which he wished for yourself. It freed them as you like to be treated your love for them with your love for yourself. Then you will have to
see how for the Muslims of Iranian import from the province of Selma, which is this is a question of personal authenticity.
But the meeting itself is agreed on
Mandalay a movie was the mean of a seminal event was not concerned about the fairness of the muslimeen is not one of them. He who is not concerned about the affairs of the mean is not one of them. So you're concerned about the Muslims and the well being of your brothers and sisters, is just like your concern for yourself. But does that mean that we do not wish good for the rest of the people?
beyond our women, do we wish good or bad?
This is guidance, but not only guidance, we wish good for the people who wish for them to you know, even if they are not Muslim, we wish for them to be married, and to have families and to have a wholesome life and so on and so forth. That is what you as a Muslim would wish for the people you wish for the sick to get better, you know and so on. In the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said this hadith
the Prophet has another Huggies, in which he said I ever want to have a pattern email, how can you help Bellin Nancy may have been bullied, I've seen, this belief was reported with sound generation by development, they don't even know
the servant will reach when attained to serve the man
until he loves for that people, connects all people that he loves for the people what he loves, for himself, that he loves for the people
of you examples on my see how the nest
actually one of the companions of the Prophet
is going to buy him a horse. So the boy, you know,
with the owner of the horse. And so he got the horse from him for 300 dermatomes. And then he brought the owner of the horse
to pay him a 300 bonus. So if the bargain was done, and Dave after law would just thing $300 the terms and get the divorce. So during our development budget, he looked at the horse and he said to the owner, but your horse is worth is worth more.
So he says something, but I accepted $300. So he said to him, No, universe is worth more. Take 400. So he said, Okay, and then Jerry looked at the horse, and he said it looks, it's worth more. So Jerry will continue to tell them, no, take more, take more entity give him 100 dirhams, until he gave him $800.
Now, do you think that this is just because he's the hobby, and these are the profits of some of them and so on and so forth. We have moved the tubes of examples of this level of, you know, sincerity for the people, for the welfare of the people, you wish them what you wish for yourself, you do not want to you know, like,
basically, as we say, Get one over them or no, you wish them what you wish for yourself. And anyone who has
a similar story happened to me for when a woman came to him with a silk silk carbon facility. So she, she she asked for 200 dirhams, she asked him for 200 so he sat there, but your garment is worth more than 200.
So she said, Well, this guy is not from here. 300.
And then he said her material, but he's, you know, he's the buyer. So he's a third but it is worth more than 300 so she said 400 and then he said Tara but that is actually worth more than 400
so she said you're making fun of me You're mocking me at this company. And that is that will be your Are you making fun of me? So she didn't believe that this would actually happen. And then he actually borrowed it from her for 500.
So that do do we have this in sight? And are we like this? Do you do Do you wonder why are we where we are
and they were where they were?
Isn't isn't so strange. It's not so strange.
Because are we like them and if we want to be if we want to reach the heights they reached then we just need to add
to follow on footsteps. To follow in the footsteps. Very simple. It is really simple, but it is so hard because it's far from changing your interior, everyone's interior, no matter how much you know noise we make no matter how much you know, action, motion and so on we make and we
are going places as an oma, if we don't individually change in 13 of the one by one and be like them, we will not, you know, attain
the level of the stations they attained and we will not reach the highest the richest county
