Okay

00:00:15--> 00:00:53

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen Illa Allah al Amin wobbliness dari Listerine one also Leona Sally Marla Tamil Ambia emammal, mousseline, Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germaine Allahu Allah Salla magenta Musa Allah or entity Jarel Husna either Sheikh salah or BSC your wallet was here with me Bill here will be Constantine, we thank Allah Allah azza wa jal for having gathered us here online and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to surround us with the mela in our individual homes, and to raise us with the MBR Allahi wa salatu wa sallam and those whom he has mentioned with them.

00:00:54--> 00:01:14

They are many many messages that are flying around from home to home, phone to phone person to person, people are sharing all sorts of information out there. And it's important for us to mention right now and right here that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:01:15--> 00:02:05

Kapha Bill Maher is men and your head de Therby Colima Samia, it is a sin for a man to speak everything that he hears. So, the minute you hear something, you speak it it is a sin the minute you receive something and you share it, it is a sin meaning you if you do that all the time, then what you have done is you have definitely lied at some point. So it is important for us to receive, verify and then check Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also says meet some of the ethical theater Raju Liza amo that it is bad for a man to use the word they said or they assumed in order to achieve a goal of his how many times in our lives, do we say they said this? And they said you

00:02:05--> 00:02:53

don't? They said we say that a lot. Who said What were they saying? Where did they get it from? These are the questions that we've got to be asking. You know, speaking without verifying actually causes a lot of harm. There have been times in history, in fact at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during the Hijra to Abyssinia. The Companions Radi Allahu Anhu. They went to Abyssinia, they were being persecuted in Mecca. So they decided to leave they migrated to Amazonia. And after some time they heard this rumor that the people who are persecuting them in Makkah had now become Muslim, and they would not persecute them any longer. So they went back to Mecca told mocha

00:02:53--> 00:03:45

Rama and when they got there, they found themselves in a situation where those same men got ahold of them and began to punish them again. What's happened, someone spread a false rumor, someone's spread false news. And as a result, the Sahaba or the Allama and whom were being punished for this rumor. So basically, this is what caused them to be punished. Secondly, in the Battle of or hurt, it was mentioned that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has now passed on. So the Sahaba the Allah MA and Han from amongst them are those who retreated. This caused weakness amongst the ranks of the Muslim mean. And as a result, it caused a lot of harm. People died, people were killed. Why? Because

00:03:45--> 00:04:36

they thought that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had passed on. This was a rumor that once again, led to the detriment of human beings, it caused the life the loss of lives as a result. So we need to be very, very careful as to what we say. And when we say it. I Insha Allah, the Allahu anha was not spared. The accusations that people were making about her when she was rescued by Sephardic Numata. This man was a good man, he came and he was honorable. He came with a shadow on the Allahu anha that those wanted to cause the muslimeen to be disunited. They wanted to cause harm. They wanted to bring the honor of the messenger so Allahu Allah, your send them down, began to

00:04:36--> 00:05:00

accuse I shall be Allah Miranda of all sorts of evil deeds. And ultimately, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who declared her innocent from above the seven heavens. So rumors caused a lot of harm of late in the last few days we've been hearing off how this virus has been spoken about in the court.

00:05:00--> 00:05:52

I'm specifically in Surah truedepth chapter in number 30 where Allah subhanahu Attallah says, I had this atta Asha upon it on 19 Angels Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about angels here yet the people have begun to say that yes, Allah spoke about the virus that is happening in the Quran it is specifically there 19 means 2019 Where did you get this from? How are you sharing such information? And then they say that this is why the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told earlier on was here Bukka Fatah here and purify your clothes while RWJF after and stay away from debt because we are being instructed to stay away from debt in these days. When Allah He you got this from your own

00:05:52--> 00:06:40

desire. If you go back to the Quran, and read what the Sahaba heard the Allahu Anhu said about this idea what the MUFA serine what the people of the past had to say about it, none of them spoke about a virus that will take place in 2019. So, it is important for us to understand that let us not spread rumors, especially when that is about the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala These are words that have been preserved in their pristine form. From the time they went down from from the time Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke them to Gibreel and then Gibreel broke them down to Muhammad and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then pass them on to the ummah. And today we have these words,

00:06:40--> 00:06:58

in the most pristine form, do you want to be from amongst those who makes a lie about Allah subhana wa Tada. Remember not to spread false information. This is very, very dangerous, not only for yourself, but for the entire humanity. So

00:06:59--> 00:07:42

when someone comes to you, what should you do when some news comes to you? You've got a message that comes on your phone? Do you long press immediately? And then just share it with another 256 people? Or do you copy that? Put it onto Facebook and post it out to the 1000s of people that are following you? Or are you careful? And do you read what is being said in the message? Is it general? Does it make sense? What is being said who has said it? Let me go back to their accounts that are verified online and find out whether they said it. Now not in every case? Do you have to do this, but sometimes verification is just by seeing you know that this message is true. It is correct.

00:07:42--> 00:08:08

Everybody has accepted it to be something true, then share it absolutely no problem. But when you get something doubtful, then be very careful. At the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there was a man who had not accepted Islam yet. And he says his name was Al Harith Ibn Vera. And who's our ear on the Allahu Anhu. So he later on became a Muslim. He went to a surah allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he asked him,

00:08:10--> 00:08:55

he says, What is Islam? So the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained to him what Islam was. And he says, Honey, I was completely at peace with Islam. And then I asked him, What is Zika? So he explained to me what is occur. So he says, I was completely at peace with what is Zika. So I told the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that let me go back to my people, and tell them about Islam and about Zika and those who accept and they give me these, these occur, then I will meet your messenger at such and such a place at such and such a time. So he went back to his people, he spoke to them about Islam, he spoke to them about Zika they accepted the message of Islam are from Amongst

00:08:55--> 00:09:39

them were people who accepted the message of Islam and gave this occur as well. So he took that wealth, he went out to the place that was agreed upon with the messenger, and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had not yet sent the messenger from his side, he had not sent a person to collect these occur. So we'll have waited for some time and then when he went back to his people, and said, look, the messenger did not come. So let us go and meet Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he began to move to Madina, Munawwara with the people who had accepted Islam and with this occur, and on the way, they came across a group of people. So the messenger sallallahu alayhi

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

wa sallam, in the meantime, had sent out a man to meet Al Hadith. And Al Hadith came back and Oh, to meet Al Hadith and this man came back and told the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you know, I met Al Hadith and he refused to give this occur and he wanted to kill me. So the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

Have a group to meet and hurry. And this, this group went out. And as they were going they met Al Hadith in the middle of the road in the middle of the path. And these people then told Al Harith that Do you know what the man who the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam sent has said, he said that you refuse to give this occur and you decided to kill him to kill him off. So, and Hadith says what Allah He managed to who, whether or not to cut me. He says, By Allah, I did not want to kill him, nor did I refuse to give him the Zika I didn't even meet him in the first place. So when this group of Alhadeff got to the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:10:48--> 00:11:28

asked them that why did you want to kill my man? And why is it that you refuse these occur? So they said that Wallahi Al had it says that Wallahi I did not meet him. And I did not intend to kill him at all. There was actually no meeting that took place between us whatsoever. And Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed verses in the Quran that we hear so many times what we don't know the reason of Revelation, Allah Allah will is that you will Janelle says, Yeah, you have levena man who?

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

Yeah, your hair levena

00:11:33--> 00:11:37

You confess your pom beanie.

00:11:38--> 00:11:57

Or you who have believed if a criminal comes to you with some news fetida en vous to Cebu comb, be just hell and so find out before you cause harm to a people without knowing that will smear who are

00:11:59--> 00:12:38

the mean. So you become regretful about that which you have done. You receive some news, you spread it immediately. And you cause a lot of harm. You send messages out there, telling the people that there's nothing like this virus, it's not going to harm you, you are causing a lot of harm, you don't realize that you are actually putting people's lives at stake. So be very careful. Understand that Allah subhanahu wa taala wants you to verify what you are spreading before you spread it willy nilly. Now,

00:12:39--> 00:13:35

the second step that we can take, in order to ensure that we don't spread anything bad or evil, anything detrimental to others, is to take our time when we receive a message, take your time. Don't just long press on that message and send it out to another 256 people. Be very careful. Look at the message read it. Remember the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says at the end niemand Allah will Agia to min ash shaytaan that taking your time is from Allah subhanho wa taala. And being haste full is from Shaytaan. When you hasten to do something too quickly without verifying without taking your time, it is from Shaytaan so don't just split anything and everything someone's life may be at

00:13:35--> 00:14:25

risk. You know, you might spell spread a message that says that if you have a heart attack, then go upside down on your head and you will be fine because then the blood is rushing towards your brain and that's the organ that requires a the most blood. I just made this up right now. So you see how this can cause a person's life to be lost. It's a rumor, it's a lie. It doesn't mean anything. So be very careful when you spread a message that you have absolutely no idea as to whether it is correct or it is wrong. May Allah subhanahu wata Allah grant us the ability to spread goodness and grant us the ability to verify before we spread anything that we have received, Amin also Allah who are
