Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa rahmatullah Nene will be in a stream. On Sunday on a Sunday morning. I'm in Gambia, he will emammal mousseline Nabina Muhammad Ali, he was like the marine among multicellular in the Niger Delta who settler one. God has an either sheet assembler, or a BSc Well, I still watch me build a robot can stream. We thank Allah
for having gathered us here today. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to surround us with the manner and to cause his mercy and His Sakina to descend upon us and to raise us with the Gambia. Allah hemos Salatu was salam, and those whom he has mentioned with them, I mean,
a delegation of people comes to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in what is known as
the year of delegations. And these people were in such a hurry to see the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that they all rushed with the clothes as the were in the state that they were in having, having traveled from very far. The rush to the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the state except for one of them. So he took his time he took a bath, and cleaned himself up, looked a bit more presentable and then went to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asks him that what is it that delayed you? And he said that look, I wanted to make myself presentable before I came in front of you. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam says, in a vehicle of hostility, knew he bajo la su Yu hibou Houma la su indeed in you they are two things that the messenger and Allah Allah. So the man asks, one of whom is rasulillah. And what is it that these two qualities are a messenger of Allah, cada Houma and he'll move on. And he says that clemency and cautiousness taking it easy. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him that these two qualities are most beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala and His Messenger.
We find ourselves many times in a situation where we want to hurry we are in a rush. And the reason is because we were created with that hastiness within us, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Why are there only certain will be shared with me, Dora?
And the human being he asks for something evil whilst he thinks he is asking for something good worker,
and human beings are ever most hasty. They are hasty in their actions, and a man comes to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam In fact, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Let you step out holy man and Mia journey, you will be answered to you will be answered in your prayer to Allah subhanho wa Taala, so long as you are not hasty in that dua of yours, and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then explains that the man says down to find a noose legibly, I asked and I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala and he never gave me he never responded. That is being hasty in your draft. The ambia Allah you know, Salatu was Salam. They were well known for having been calm individuals
slow individuals cautious in their actions, they didn't hasten to do something they thought before they did something. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says about Muhammad Sallallahu I think we were selling them for bml I met him in Allah healing.
morning how huling it is because of the OCMA of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon you that you are lenient with them. If you were harsh and difficult they would have turned away from you. Meaning you are easy going with them. You were slow in your reaction to them you did didn't hasten to be harsh with them. But they are certain instances from the sooner
And from the time of the MBR i think you know, Salatu was Salam in which we find that they were hasty. And Allah subhanho wa Taala reprimanded them for this, you find that Musa alayhis Salatu was Salam. He goes quickly in front of his people to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala is moving with his people, and he rushes to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when he gets to a muscle kind of Mourtada, or he gets to the meeting point where Allah subhanho wa Taala was going to address him. He says, Allah, wa
Jalla komikko Yama, Keanu bhana
30 yg Tony Lee john Bailey Jamal, he says what do you see that made you hasten from your people or Moosa? He says they are close they are on my footsteps. And I rushed to you so that you may be happy with me. Oh Allah. What does Allah subhanho wa Taala say?
Samiti. He says that indeed we tested your people and said he has misguided them. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is reprimanding you Look, you've left your people alone. What happened as soon as you left them, Sameera misguided then you were supposed to stay with them and come with them. So yeah, Allah subhanho wa Taala is reprimanding Mousavi salatu salam for being hasty once again. And Eunice la Salatu was Salam. He leaves his people because he called them for a very long time telling them come to Allah subhanho wa Taala worship only Allah don't associate partners with him, and he got tired. He reached a point where he realized these people, they are not going to turn back to Allah subhanho
wa Taala. So he left and Allah subhanahu wa taala describes the same for us. Well, then only he
body on it. And the man of the fish, the one of the fish, he left his people, and he left him angry. So he thought that we would not decree anything upon Him, we will not decide to command something upon him for him.
So there he was asking in the darkness. Allah subhana wa Taala says that he left his people before he had permission. Immediately he was in the belly of the whale, it is literally as though it is immediate. That is how Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What is the lesson to myself and yourself? Don't rush. Think, take a moment. Take your time, and then decide and move. And this is why the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says luck, luck and tend to be there is no brain and intelligence like a person who sits and plans things of what I should do in order to get to such and such a place. You see, one of the places where we lose a lot by being hasty is when we give
One of the things that is allowed in Islam, but is disliked is
many people once they are angry in a state all of a sudden, hey, I divorce you you should not do that. Why? Because you will regret it later. Later. You are angry.
When would you No, no, no. One who drew
that anger. The first part of it is madness. You get mad, you lose your mind. And then the end of it is regret. So you find that a man comes to you and says I divorced my wife three times. It's over Brother, why did you do something like that? Allah subhanho wa Taala says
Bella is twice for him.
We now move in our test three behaves. So I either you hold with goodness or you let go with goodness, you either mold with goodness or let go with goodness. Why does Allah subhanho wa Taala say twice, because or thrice. You've got to give that palette for it to be irrevocable when you cannot go back to the woman because he's giving you a chance one time, you've had a chance twice, you've had a chance. Now the third time we know that you don't want to go back to this person. But what happens today, we give a follow up three times in a row and then we want to come and ask for more. Please allow this to happen. Shake. You know, I made a mistake. Yeah.
Why didn't you think before you made that mistake? Why didn't you walk away from the situation you know
One of the reasons why a woman is meant to stay with you after you give her the first pillar and the second pillar. Why? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala is giving you a chance that get together once again with her. You are not allowed to engage intimacy in that period. But Allah subhanho wa Taala is giving you a chance, think about what you've done, do you really want to continue in this manner? And you naturally start to think perhaps let me give it another chance. So Allah subhanho wa Taala gives us chance and chance again, but what do we do? We hasted we hate them and we destroy all of them. We disregard all of it. So take your time when it comes to
you know Salah
we should also take our time, how many times do we see people coming? And they love work but next thing, Allah What about something I love? Allah, Allah, Allah what that is not Salah. That is not Salah. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sees a man performing Salah in this manner in the masjid and he says eerdere for suddenly fell in the column to suddenly return for indeed you have not performed your Salah return and perform Salah again and repeat it because you have not performed your Salah. If you don't stand long enough for all of your bones to come into the place in Salah, then your Salah is not counted. And one of the places that many of us disregard is between the two
such deaths between the two sides that we want to rush, one such that we hardly up and we back down into the next search that don't do that. Take your time. Take a moment of being familiar of the 30 then go into the next 30 days, but also to Lausanne Allahu alayhi wa sallam actually tells this man in Egypt for son leaving McCallum to Sunday, you didn't perform Salah what kind of a loss would it be for us if we have to come to Allah subhanho wa Taala and we've performed that Salah, but we haven't actually performed we haven't received the reward of what the difference between a Salah that is fast, and one that is slow is one or two minutes. One or two minutes. We can spend hours on
our phone, but we can't give those two minutes to Allah subhanho wa Taala let us take our time whilst performing our Salah.
There is a man who was told by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to go to the non Muslim. And he was told that when you get there go and collect the Zika these people were new to Islam. And when the men went to Bernal metallic As he approached these people were so happy to give this occur. They came out in the custom dress and tradition with these rules. So they he saw these people coming out with this world and he said they don't want to give the cat he decided in his mind that they want to fight me and kill me off. So he returned quickly to him sooner Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells him with these occur. He says look these people they
came out they were ready to kill me. So the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then since a group of people who are in the military, then a few others and says that go to them and see what is going to happen. See what they do if they fight you fight them, if they don't fight you leave them. So before Khalid normally there will be a loved one who reached the place that they were staying at the dwellings.
They actually came to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they said that you know what happened? There is a man who came to us but he returned he left hastily. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained to them they resolve the matter and the issue they realize that there was actually no animosity or hatred from these people. They were just coming out in happiness as a celebration of them, giving them the camp for Allah subhana wa to Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala renewed versus Yeah, Johan Medina, man Oh,
boy on being that Debbie and oh, to see Oh, man Ninja Turtles.
Dini, oh, you will have believed if a corrupt person comes to you with news, then find out. Lest you may assume the worst of a people or you may ignorantly harm a people and you become regretful of that which you did. You see how this situation could have blown up into a war of Muslims against Muslims? Because a man came back and he was hasty in giving us hey, these people, this is what they did. The least he could have done was to come back to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or the most he could have done was to come
back and say, Look, I saw this is what they did. And leave it at that, rather than telling him that I think they want to kill us, they've left Islam. So today, how do we bring that into our lives? We, when you receive some news on your phone, then Don't be hasty to click that button and just share it. That news may be false, it may be fake, it may not even be exactly as it is today. They are programs that people use to put people's pictures together and make videos Subhanallah they make a video of the person as though he's speaking yet, we don't know whether that person actually uttered those words or not. So don't be hasty to always something that you don't even know the truth of. It
can actually lead to a lot of problems not only for yourself, but for the entire community and for the entire oma at times. Because today, the world is a Global Village, we are living in a global village where something happens here today, the news is there on the other side of the world within seconds, within seconds. So make sure you know what you are sharing is correct and true. That is part of not being hasty in your face and matters. Lastly, we come to what is known as risk sustenance,
a person is gone to risk and he is given risk from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has a written list for every one of us sitting here today. All of the oma for all of human beings, that is has been rooting for them, let alone human beings, even animals. But what happens a person is hasty. He keeps trying and making an effort until he does that, which is how long and he received it receives it from the wrong door. He receives it from the wrong door. So he puts hard money into his pocket. He feeds himself with heroin money, and he his life becomes haram solely because he was hasty. And you know, amazingly, I don't even have you thought about the alumni who
had a beggar once knock on his door. And this beggar asked him for some money. What did he do? He went to the back of the house. And when he came back, the beggar was gone. And the bridle of his horse was also gone. So he took it and he ran away he started so early, it'll be a lot more and more he tells me seven look this money that was going to give him take it and going buy a bridle from the marketplace. So he goes and he buys a bridle from the marketplace. And he comes back to earlier the alarm on
the alarm and was touching it he looks at it and he says can know who it is as though it is the same bridle that I was, you know that he stole. So this man could have taken that money with Helen, if he had just waited a few moments, just a few moments for earlier the alarm who to return. But what happened he took it with how am I stealing it and at the end of the day, he got that same money. So your risk is written for you. It's written for you and it will come to you To the extent that was almost a level I didn't even send them says in Lubrizol
parlor but tolerable risk book, that if you do not seek your risk, your risk and your sustenance will seek you. Allah what what we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us the ability to be cautious to be slow and easy going. I mean or sallallahu wasallam our Baraka I learned
early he was he may
