00:00:21--> 00:00:22

Welcome to

00:00:29--> 00:00:30

the beginner Muhammad

00:00:33--> 00:00:33

Allah

00:00:38--> 00:01:02

Sandler obviously wouldn't want us to jump in will hire will be kind of scary. We thank you all for having us here today. And we ask a lump sum kind of more data to surround us with the matter and to cause his mercy and he's sick enough to descend upon us, and to raise us with the MBR Allahu salatu salam, and those whom he has mentioned with them. I mean

00:01:04--> 00:01:10

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood up in front of the greatest cloud of Islam.

00:01:11--> 00:01:12

And he gave a talk.

00:01:13--> 00:01:17

In the Spotify, he says in deema akun.

00:01:21--> 00:01:27

Indeed, your blood and your wealth and your honor is hard for you

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

to meet

00:01:30--> 00:02:24

in the same manner, that this day is protected, sanctified, how long for you? It is sanctified for you, the Benedictine mother, In this lesson, City of yours, fee shall reclaim her that In this lesson, monk of yours, also lots of love. Why don't you tell them don't do this to the people on the day of alpha in alpha. so alpha is not only a day, it is not only a time, but it is also a sacred place, sanctified was the place sanctified was the month sanctified was the day sanctified were the people because they were the Sahaba maratea love and this was the most blessing man to ever walk upon this earth but also love Salah lavoir I think he will send them saying this. Yet we definitely

00:02:24--> 00:03:01

got this every single day. You find a person saying hey, this man he does such and such an action. Hey, that woman she engages in such and such an action. Hey, do you know that that person has a bulbous nose? This one has a crooked smile. That one has eyebrow eyebrows that are not straight? This man is black, that man is white, that man is such and such. Why do we do this dear brothers and sisters in Islam? We are Muslims. We identify with this faith that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came with yet we disregard these words every single day.

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

Also lots of love while you are selling. In fact Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you have nothing. Oh, you have believe each tiny bucatini Amina keep away from most of the suspicion in

00:03:18--> 00:04:15

Islam. Indeed, suspicion is actually a sin. Some parts of suspicion is actually a sin. One I have a ba, ba ba and let one of you not backbite the other. Are you Hippo hadoken Kula he mighta for caring to move. If there's one of you love to eat the dead body of his brother, for carriers to move. you dislike this. Imagine someone want to cut up a body of another human being and then invite us come partake of this meal, peaceful peace we will eat this human being you'd say What is he talking about? It is absurd. Yet we do the same every single day. Do you know what happened? this candle between the Muslims and this machine that's candle between the Muslims that that must be nuts can do

00:04:15--> 00:04:45

between the Muslims. And that must be we are all Muslim. I mean, we are all believers in Allah subhanho wa Taala Why do we do this? Why do we do this? How far are we going to carry on? And how long are we going to carry on before we Stop the nonsense before we stop the rubbish before we stop the corruption? The worst part of it is the people who are talking and I'm talking about myself. The people who are talking other worst of people. Why?

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

Because I have so many problems. I have so many students that I am engaged in. I have so many defects within me yet I look at the next man. It I talk about the next man

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

I talk about the next woman, the next group the next semester, the next community, who are we who gave us the right? Yet we have our own sins. If we were to focus on ours, it would be enough. For us. It would be enough for us. I speak about the so passionately today because it is a cancer in our community, not only our community, but the oma at large, every single Muslim community that you go to. Not that I know. There is no community that I know of, let me put it this way. There is no community that I know of, that is free of this cancer, and all lonely it is a cancer. Think the next time someone calls you for coffee and you are sitting and you are talking about the next brother,

00:05:46--> 00:05:51

think about this as partaking of that brothers lunch.

00:05:53--> 00:06:30

And understand that you are separating community, that is what you can change in your life. You know, when you we talk about unity, we always say there's nothing we can do about it. It's not it is what it is. There's nothing we can do about it. But on a personal level, I can stop talking about my brother, I can stop talking about my sister, I can stop talking about the other master. We need to stop. It's time we end this nonsense, this rubbish, this cancer that has taken over us forget about the differences. If you have differences, then at least

00:06:31--> 00:06:40

at least the least that you can do is protect your tongue from your brother. The least that you can do is protect your tongue from your system.

00:06:41--> 00:07:21

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, mentor Tabitha amata, merci attempt by a lover I will attack the one who follows the defense of the people. Hey, did you do you know something about this person's life? What does he engage in on the weekend? What does he do at night? Do you know what type of TV he is watching at home? You know, maybe there are certain programs that he's watching. I want to know about it. What happens when you do this, but I love wireless. I love to kind of what Allah follows his defense. And the Hadith doesn't mean

00:07:23--> 00:07:24

the Hadith doesn't mean the

00:07:25--> 00:07:28

woman attempt ba ma otaku.

00:07:30--> 00:08:23

De jiofi Beatty and the one boom, Allah subhana wa tada follows his defect, he will expose him even if he's in the middle of his house, your home is your safe place, your home is a place you feel protected within a month. So kind of what Allah will expose your defects because you are following the defects of others. Even if you are in that protected place for the homeowner ofI jiofi biting jokes in the Arabic language literally means the stomach It is one of the meanings that that it is used for the stomach. We do not see what is going on within the stomach. A person cannot see with the naked eye the digestion that happens in the same manner. Your home is your protective place.

00:08:23--> 00:08:39

Nobody knows what is going on within the home when a person comes into your home or when let's put it this way. When we go into other people's homes or we go into other people's lives, we go into other people's details. Then Allah subhana wa tada is following hours.

00:08:40--> 00:08:59

Allah subhana wa tada is following hours. If I were to stop at that point in the Hadith, a perfect person who is in man, a person will believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala and say it is enough for me to keep away from talking about my brother. It is enough for me to keep away from talking about my sister.

00:09:01--> 00:09:06

I saw how the companion of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:09:07--> 00:09:22

he comes to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he asked him melvita what is backbiting? So sudo masala Why didn't you send them gave him the definition of backbiting. Vic ruka Africa

00:09:23--> 00:09:59

it is your mention of the brother your brother that which he detests that which he hates. So the Sahabi lb a loved one will continue to further our into in Canada female code. Do you see if this defect that I'm talking about is within that person? He has this defect? He does have a crooked eyebrow. He does have a funny smile. He is perhaps engaged in rebar he is engaged in Xena, our female pool. Do you see if there is that defect within

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

him also Lola sort of love while he was sending him says

00:10:05--> 00:10:11

so you have made Riba of him. What you learn your spoon feed him at a pool pocket.

00:10:12--> 00:11:02

And if they that defect is not within him, then you have actually engaged in something known as boltaron. accusation. So HIPAA by definition is when that person has that defect, that person is engaged in Zina, that person is engaged in alcoholism, that person is engaged in Riba, you talk bad about him, what happens? You have spoken that about your brother in the form of backbiting, hear from the hadith of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And if he doesn't have that, then you've accused him, which is worse, you've accused him of something that he doesn't even have, what happens today, I receive a WhatsApp message on my phone. And the next thing I do

00:11:03--> 00:11:08

long press, we all know the system forward, it goes to the next round.

00:11:09--> 00:11:52

And then the next brother shares it and the next brother shares it and the next brother shares it until the whole community thinks or knows about a person's defect. Why did you do that? Just stop a moment and ask yourself before you forward that, I have the option to delete this message. And I have the option to forward it. Allah subhana wa tada is testing here. And now so let me be careful about what my next steps will be. Yeah, you have Latina, blurted, who, upon Oh, you who have believed, don't let, don't follow the footsteps of shavon. Don't follow the footsteps of shaman. These are the footsteps of shaman.

00:11:55--> 00:11:58

When we receive something or some news from a person,

00:12:01--> 00:12:05

perhaps if it is bad about someone else, the least we can do

00:12:06--> 00:12:51

is remain silence. And the best thing possible would be to find out from that person, you know, brother, I heard this about you. Don't go and say the person's name because you will continue to cause discord amongst the oma, say, I heard this about you. I'd like to know what is the reality? Well, let me recently I was sitting with some brothers. And we were talking about something and a conversation came up and he you know, we asked him, we said, you know, we heard you were married again. We heard you were married again. And he says, well, money. I don't even know where this movement has come from. I don't even know where this rumor has come from. I'm not married. I'm

00:12:51--> 00:12:53

interested in getting married but I'm not married.

00:12:55--> 00:13:07

Okay, maybe that's not the worst of things. But look at how rumors spread. We're lucky this rumor was so prevalent in the community that everyone thought the brother is married. We verified it in a split moment.

00:13:08--> 00:13:36

In a split moment, he told us Yes, I was interested. But I'm not married. How far have we gotten? We know how often we talk about others. It has become the topic of choice at a dinner meal you sitting let's talk about others. Let's eat not only the food that we are eating, but let us eat the flesh of that brand. Let us eat the flesh of that system. It is time we talk cash.

00:13:37--> 00:14:25

And we realize this problem, cut it out of our lives. Remember, every time you think about talking about someone you will answer before a Buddha is that you are jealous. You spoke on such and such a day at such and such a time. These are the words you said even if you forgot it. Allah blessed that you are gentle lions. He does not forget, he will bring it up and he will ask you he will question you. So why do you want to be a prisoner of your tongue? remain silent if you cannot speak good mechanics. We love you and you're the one who believes in Allah and the Last Day finally Apple halen let him say something good. Only Yes. Or let him remain silent. Let him remain silent. Why at least

00:14:25--> 00:14:39

you will not come on the day of pm and be questioned for your silence. That means you will not be you will not come on the day of piano and be questioned for your silence. remain silent in silence. If you have nothing good to say.

00:14:40--> 00:14:59

Allah subhana wa Tada. In fact, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us he was one. And this is the solution to your brothers and sisters in Islam. That be way of suspicion. Beware of suspicion, but even not one. Not at all.

00:15:00--> 00:15:10

Howdy. Indeed suspicion is the most lies of speech. It is the greatest of lies within speech.

00:15:12--> 00:15:13

Yakumo

00:15:14--> 00:16:09

beware of suspicion For indeed, suspicion is the worst of lies. It is the greatest of lies. The minute your soul tells you that brother is doing this, maybe or he's sitting in his car on a dark night in a corner, tell yourself perhaps he is performing Salah, perhaps he is making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Cut off any thought before you can go further. Cut off any thoughts before you can go any further. Why? Because if you go further, you will speak about it not by my words, but by the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what to do. And don't be jealous when a tener joshu and don't have discord dispute, well attach a session and don't spy one at a session. And

00:16:09--> 00:17:02

don't go and find out about the details of your brother. When I have a ba, ba ba and don't let one of you speak bad about another. The minute you cut off that thought you have cut off the train and it doesn't go any further. When you take it further and further. They will come out something bad about your brother from your mouth. So protect your tongue and protect the honor of the muslimeen remember the words of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the sanctified area on a sanctified day at a sanctified time in our Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that our blood our mouth and our honor is protected. It is protected by Allah subhanho wa Taala the day that you break that

00:17:02--> 00:17:27

protection, then you are actually breaking the sanctity, the holiness, the spirituality, the prohibition of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanahu Allah protect us, let us get rid of this cancer from our society. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us the ability starting with myself to practice upon the on these few words. I mean, what sort of law who was that law?
