00:00:00--> 00:00:04

Allah subhanaw taala created us, human beings,

00:00:06--> 00:00:11

as beings that are living in communities with one another,

00:00:12--> 00:00:14

interacting with each other.

00:00:15--> 00:00:16

The human being

00:00:17--> 00:00:25

is drawn to social interaction, to speak, to share, to talk to interact with other people.

00:00:26--> 00:00:29

We are innately drawn to social connection.

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

And it's nearly impossible for anyone to live in isolation, to live alone, cut off of all of human interaction.

00:00:42--> 00:00:45

Even if a person were to physically isolate themselves,

00:00:46--> 00:00:52

they would still find themselves interacting in the online world, buying and selling,

00:00:53--> 00:00:55

talking virtually to people.

00:00:57--> 00:01:03

This is the way Allah azza wa jal created us that we are social beings needing social interaction.

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

But this mixing amongst people,

00:01:10--> 00:01:12

the interactions that we have with people,

00:01:13--> 00:01:16

personal or professional,

00:01:17--> 00:01:21

through business, or through social contact,

00:01:22--> 00:01:36

interacting with people, often causes disagreements often causes even hatred, animosity, broken relationships.

00:01:37--> 00:01:45

Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us well, I will share Rob Booker ledger and a nurse Mattawa Haider,

00:01:46--> 00:01:59

her God wills, He would have made you all a single community. While he is Aluna bhakta defin. But they will not cease to differ. People will always differ.

00:02:01--> 00:02:10

We will always have disagreements in lemon Rahima book except those whom Allah subhanaw taala has given them mercy.

00:02:12--> 00:02:19

Humans are constantly deferring and disagreeing and arguing, except those whom Allah azza wa jal has shown mercy to.

00:02:20--> 00:02:33

And the hatred and the animosity that some times arises. Out of these differences in disagreements is something that our religion instructs us to try to remove.

00:02:34--> 00:02:44

That we should be striving our hardest, to bring peace and love in harmony to the hearts of our brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:02:46--> 00:02:54

And to be the people who walked the path of peace, who walked the path of rectification between the people.

00:02:56--> 00:03:09

When Musa alayhis salam left his brother in charge of his people, he gave him some advice on a moo Sadie as he has grown.

00:03:11--> 00:03:17

Musa said to his brother Harun, take my place amongst the people were also there

00:03:18--> 00:03:19


00:03:20--> 00:03:21

do right by them,

00:03:22--> 00:03:35

rectify them, one at a time they are severe enough CDN and do not follow the path of those who are corrupts reform them reconcile between them.

00:03:36--> 00:03:55

It says it from the words of Musa we can understand that one is either walking the path of reconciling between the people or they're walking the path of corrupting between the people because he says us now what what at the tibia, Sabine and move CDN.

00:03:57--> 00:04:06

rectify the people, reconcile between them, bring love between them, and don't follow the way of those who corrupts.

00:04:08--> 00:04:17

So there's two paths, the path of creating hatred between people and the path of bringing peace between people.

00:04:18--> 00:04:23

And we have to ask ourselves, which of these paths do we walk every day?

00:04:25--> 00:04:27

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:04:29--> 00:04:31

mentioned a story

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

that will happen on the Day of Judgment.

00:04:35--> 00:04:39

So he's telling us of a future events that will happen

00:04:41--> 00:04:50

this Day of the Day of Judgment. Just imagine for a moment the severity of the distress that people will face

00:04:51--> 00:04:57

that the pregnant women will abort their babies out of the fear of that day

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

that the mothers will obey

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

And then the newborn out of their fear of that day.

00:05:05--> 00:05:06

This day of judgment

00:05:09--> 00:05:11

where families are running away from each other.

00:05:12--> 00:05:15

Everyone is worried about their hisab

00:05:16--> 00:05:19

everyone's worried about them being taken to account.

00:05:22--> 00:05:28

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sitting amongst the Sahaba he begins to laugh

00:05:30--> 00:05:33

and he laughed so much that they can see

00:05:35--> 00:05:41

the molars of his teeth, the back teeth, they can see it from how much he sallallahu alayhi wasallam is laughing

00:05:44--> 00:05:46

so oh my God, Allah one said O Messenger of Allah.

00:05:47--> 00:05:49

What has caused you to laugh?

00:05:51--> 00:05:58

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then tells them this story of what will happen to two men on the day of judgments.

00:06:00--> 00:06:02

He said the Raju Landmann on Mati

00:06:04--> 00:06:17

just Yeah, being a de la Bella is he said two men, two men from my Alma will be on their knees, between the hands of the Lord of all glory SubhanaHu wa Tada.

00:06:18--> 00:06:22

Meaning they will be standing before Allah azza wa jal for him to judge them

00:06:23--> 00:06:24

for calling how to whom,

00:06:26--> 00:06:27

whose limb of the diameter mean?

00:06:28--> 00:06:30

One of them will say, My Lord,

00:06:31--> 00:06:33

take my rights from my brother,

00:06:34--> 00:06:39

meaning this brother of mine in the dunya he took my rights.

00:06:41--> 00:06:42

Perhaps this brother

00:06:43--> 00:06:44

stole his money.

00:06:46--> 00:06:54

Perhaps this brother, gossips and back bit about him and took away from his honor and from his reputation.

00:06:58--> 00:07:04

His brother did something in the dunya where he took away his rights. So he says, Yeah, Rob, my lord.

00:07:05--> 00:07:07

gives me my rights from my brother.

00:07:09--> 00:07:23

So Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will tell him for K for Tostan there'll be Akik while Amir kala woman has an Atty. U shape. Allah will ask him, What are you doing to your brother? Or how will you treat your brother

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

if he will be left with no good deeds?

00:07:29--> 00:07:34

Meaning Allah is telling him if I fulfill your request,

00:07:35--> 00:07:38

and I give you your rights today,

00:07:40--> 00:07:47

what your brother did to you was so severe, he will be left with no more good deeds, his good deeds will be done.

00:07:48--> 00:07:54

So Allah asks him, what do you want to do with your brother who will be left with no more good deeds?

00:07:55--> 00:07:56

And so he says,

00:07:58--> 00:07:59

Phil Yeah.

00:08:01--> 00:08:05

Let him take my sins, if I took away all of his good deeds,

00:08:06--> 00:08:08

then give him also my sins.

00:08:09--> 00:08:17

So now his brother will have no good deeds, and on top of his own sins, He will now carry the sins of his own brother.

00:08:20--> 00:08:23

And here as our Prophet Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam

00:08:25--> 00:08:29

was narrating the story, his eyes began to fill with tears.

00:08:32--> 00:08:37

Because our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was thinking about these moments on the day of judgment.

00:08:38--> 00:08:42

He was thinking about these moments that we know in the Quran

00:08:45--> 00:08:56

that the children are running from their parents. The husband is running from their wife on the day of judgment that everyone is saying on that day NFC NFC myself myself

00:08:57--> 00:09:02

that on that day, everyone will want to blame everyone else for all of their sins.

00:09:03--> 00:09:07

Our Prophet Sall Allahu Allah, you will send them knowing this reality

00:09:08--> 00:09:09

began to cry.

00:09:11--> 00:09:15

And he said in Dhaka, Leone, tied to NASA and your

00:09:16--> 00:09:22

men, oh, sorry, him. He said that is a day where people will be in need for others to carry their sins.

00:09:24--> 00:09:35

That is a day so distrustful so difficult. People will need others to take away their sins from them, the sins in the dunya that we don't even think about

00:09:36--> 00:09:39

the sins in the dunya that we don't even consider

00:09:40--> 00:09:49

the sins in the dunya that we don't pay any attention to. On that day, we will be in need of others to take these sins from us.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

So Allah subhanaw taala tells the man Irrfan Masak, one Woodfill gene and you will tell him raise your site

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

and look to the gardens of Paradise.

00:10:05--> 00:10:13

So the man raises his head, and he looks before him. And he sees the gardens of Jannah in front of him.

00:10:14--> 00:10:24

And he sees its rivers, its valleys. He sees its castles of gold, it Cities of Gold,

00:10:25--> 00:10:27

decorated with pearls.

00:10:28--> 00:10:53

And he turns to Allah subhanaw taala. And he says Lee Nebby and Hannah, the aim is to deeply enhance the Aisha he didn't have. He says, Oh Allah, to which Prophet do these gardens belong to? Oh Allah to which truthful man or woman do these gardens belong to? Oh Allah to which martyr shade do these gardens belong to?

00:10:55--> 00:11:03

And Allah subhanaw taala tells him all women are out of limb and out of feminine. He said, This belongs to whoever pays its price.

00:11:06--> 00:11:09

So the man says, and who can own this who can pay its price?

00:11:10--> 00:11:30

And Allah tells him, you can pay its price. You can own this. You want all of this gender, you want all of this reward? You can earn it. He says, How can I earn it? Oh Allah. He says on our behalf, we can. He says it is with you forgiving your brother.

00:11:32--> 00:11:43

And so he turns to Allah subhanaw taala and he says, God I felt I felt what he says oh Allah I have forgiven I have forgiven. And so Allah subhanaw taala tells him for whom via DLC

00:11:44--> 00:11:49

for EDS Cleito, who in agenda he says take the hand of your brother and both of you enter into Janna.

00:11:51--> 00:12:27

The Prophet sallallahu where are they you send them at the end of this hadith. He tells us something. He says it took Allah what else there was that to be Unicom for in Allah who used to be obedient, minion, he said, fear Allah and rectify the relationships between you for indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala rectifies between the believers, Allah reconciles the relationships between the believers, Allah azza wa jal himself what is he doing in this hadith, but that there are two believers

00:12:28--> 00:12:29

who are in conflict.

00:12:31--> 00:12:43

And Allah azza wa jal is trying to place peace between them. What act can be more beautiful and more honorable than a deed that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah and His Messenger both acted upon?

00:12:44--> 00:13:30

Allah azza wa jal tells us in the Quran, La Jolla, Rafi cathedra him in the July home in lemon Amma Ravi sada cotton, Alma are often our listener haven't been a nurse. He says there is no good in most of their private conversations, the private conversations that people have every day in every home. In every city and every village there are people who sit together and have a private conversation. Allah says Laffy Taffy can feed him in the dwell there is no good and most of these conversations in LA except man, Mr. Ravi sadaqa those who are enjoined to give charity Oh my roof or to do good Oh, it's that hadn't been enough or those who tried to reconcilable between people. When they if i Daddy

00:13:30--> 00:13:44

kept the law I'm not about to Allah, and whoever does this, seeking the reward from Allah subhanaw taala. For so filthy here, for so filthy agilon Alima then we shall surely give them a great amount of reward.

00:13:45--> 00:13:48

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us

00:13:49--> 00:13:50


00:13:52--> 00:13:58

there is a deed that this deed is better than sauna and cm and sadaqa

00:14:00--> 00:14:46

muddiman dot Raja tin, a CRM, a sauna to Austria Masada surely not inform you of that which is a degree better than prayer and fasting and charity. Now when the Prophet says this, He intends the voluntary prayers and the voluntary fasting and the voluntary sadaqa he said, Shall I tell you what is better than all of these three things? And they said yes, on Messenger of Allah, and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, so that was actually the end. He said to reconcile the relationships vein, the facade that we'll be in, he'll highly call he's a friend did corrupting the relationships. That is entirely the thing that shaves. And then he said, in the pool in the heart,

00:14:47--> 00:14:55

well, I couldn't. When he said, I'm not saying the thing that shaves your hair, but it is the thing that shaves your religion.

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

It takes away your religion.

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

causes people to curse each other. What causes people to insult each other? What causes people to oppress each other? What causes people to steal from one another?

00:15:11--> 00:15:19

What causes people to take the rights of each other? It's the corrupting of the relationship. And this is known statistically.

00:15:21--> 00:15:36

Most crime occurs between people who know each other. Yes, there is crime, somebody you don't know steals your car. Yes, this happens. But statistically, the majority of crime happens between whom

00:15:37--> 00:15:57

happens between people who know each other. Most murders are people who know each other. Most theft is between people who know each other. So the corrupting of the relationship ends up causing all these greater sins down the road. This is why it isn't highly for the thing that shaves not your hair, but your religion.

00:15:58--> 00:16:09

And why we can siling between the people is one of the greatest acts of our religion, how much evil is prevented? How much gossip and Backbiting is prevented?

00:16:10--> 00:16:32

How much harm and abuse is prevented? When you are able to reconcile between two people, when you are able to bring love and happiness between two people. And because of this, our religion permits us even to quote unquote, lie to reconcile between people. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, lay several caveats here, he's not a liar.

00:16:34--> 00:16:40

So in truth, this is not a lie. Man ASA has been a nasty for color. Hi, Ron Elton. And

00:16:41--> 00:16:51

he said he is not a liar, the one who tries to bring people together, reconcile the relationships. So he says good, or he exaggerates good.

00:16:52--> 00:17:04

to omit evil, to spread good to exaggerate good. This is not a lie. Because of how important it is in our deen to bring the hearts together.

00:17:06--> 00:17:21

And one of the scholars he says that Allah subhanaw taala loves lying quote unquote here, because it's not true in reality, lying. He loves quote, unquote, lying for the sake of bringing people together.

00:17:22--> 00:17:31

And he hates telling the truth for the sake of corrupting the relationship between people. Like you hear something, you hear someone say something

00:17:32--> 00:17:36

that you know will cause another person to be angry.

00:17:37--> 00:17:44

You hear it? So you go to him. And you tell him those words, did you lie? You said what is truthful?

00:17:45--> 00:17:47

But what is your intent in doing so?

00:17:48--> 00:17:58

It's gonna cause corruption between these two people. So you're telling the truth, quote, unquote, but for the sake of corrupting relationships between two people.

00:18:00--> 00:18:30

And so he says, Allah hates that. And lying going to a person saying you know that other brother, he actually respects you. He actually looks up to you. You exaggerate this goodness, to bring hearts together. This is something Allah subhanaw taala loves. And we see our prophets of Allah when he was selling so many incidents of the Sierra, where he takes initiative goes forward to reconcile the relationships between people.

00:18:32--> 00:18:42

We have to ask ourselves, who are we? Are we the people bringing the hearts together? Are we the people corrupting the hearts? Are we the people spreading the gossip? Are we the people fixing the problems?

00:18:44--> 00:18:56

News came to our profits on the law. Where are you selling the people in Oba right outside of Medina got into an argument to the point that some of them started to throw stones at the others. What did our Prophet do?

00:18:57--> 00:19:02

When we hear words like this? For most of us, it's juicy gossip.

00:19:03--> 00:19:18

Oh, that's an interesting story. I'm going to tell other people about it. Now we're going to talk about it, we're going to gossip about it. And the news is going to spread and those two people fighting. They're gonna hate each other even more, because they're gonna know the news of this spreading.

00:19:19--> 00:19:30

Our Prophet sallallahu sallam said, It has been an industry. Let's go right now so we can fix their problems. Let's go right now. So we can reconcile between them.

00:19:31--> 00:19:33

And he wants immediately to do this

00:19:34--> 00:19:54

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the time of prayer came and Bilal came, and the Prophet wasn't there and be relevant to Abu Bakr. He said, the prophet is still busy with something very important, fixing these people's relationships. So he says Abu Bakr, will you lead the prayer? And Abu Bakr says yes.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

And beloved gives the leads the prayer, and during the prayer that

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

Rafa comes into the masjid and he stands in the first stuff and the people begin clapping.

00:20:07--> 00:20:08

So that Abu Bakr knows,

00:20:09--> 00:20:24

and they Clap loudly into Abu Bakar turns his head and he sees the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So he starts to retreat and the prophet tells them to go forward continue to lead, and Abu Bakr refuses, he retreats, and the prophet comes forward and leads.

00:20:25--> 00:21:03

And after the prayer the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells the people, why did you clap? Clapping is for the women. If the women need the attention during the prayer, they should clap, but for the men, they should say subhanallah and then he said to Abu Bakr, why did you come back when I gestured for you to remain forward? And Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah and said, It is not befitting for the son of Abbey of Kochava, to lead the prayer, and amongst him as the messenger of allah sallallahu he was just a hadith in Bukhari. The point of it is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went immediately to deal with the trouble of the people, and to bring love between them to

00:21:03--> 00:21:27

the point that he ended up coming late to the prayer. And this was not the habit of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam we know as well, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to visit his daughter faulty model the Allahu aina. And he went to her in the time prior to the hook, which is the time people usually sleep and take a nap. He went to her house, he enters the house earlier, the Allahu Allah is not there.

00:21:29--> 00:21:36

So he asked her, where is it? This is a time where everyone is home. And she said, you know, he got upset and he left.

00:21:37--> 00:21:40

Whatever argument they had, he got upset and he left.

00:21:42--> 00:21:48

A lot of fathers in this instance, they hear there's trouble between their daughter and between her husband.

00:21:49--> 00:22:15

They're gonna stay there. They're gonna get more angry with her. They're gonna add ammunition. Oh, he did this to you. Well, one day he also did this. We add fuel to the fire. So now she gets more angry and you get more angry, and we just create more animosity. What did our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do? He got up right away. Where is he gonna go find him? And he went after him. And he found him sleeping in the masjid.

00:22:17--> 00:22:20

And he was tossing and turning while he was sleeping in the masjid.

00:22:22--> 00:22:24

You know, he must have been thinking about what was happening.

00:22:25--> 00:22:44

So when the Prophet got there, he had dirt all over both shoulders. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said to me about Korab get up Oh father of the dirt because he was covered in dirt. But the Allah and the Prophet gave him a joke and immediately starts to reconcile between the idea of the Allahu and 14 out of the Allahu Allahu Allah.

00:22:46--> 00:23:26

This is the way of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to fit our Bible Jana Yama, listening wheelman semis. The doors of paradise are open on the days of Monday in the days of Thursday. One of the reasons why it's important to fast these days. It is a sunnah. He said and it will it is said on that day for you for all equally armed in Nash, the shady Kabila he should know you should Malaysia is forgiven on that day for every servant, who does not associate in the worship of Allah azza wa jal anything he said except to people who are arguing with each other to people who have animosity between each other.

00:23:27--> 00:23:28

He said it said,

00:23:30--> 00:23:54

wait for these to leave them and wait. Leave them in wait until they reconcile with one another. And so if people are in extended animosity, extended hatred between each other years and years and years and years, imagine every week, the forgiveness of Allah could be coming to them. But then they are told, waits until they reconcile.

00:23:55--> 00:24:17

And so the forgiveness of Allah azza wa jal is delayed or prevented from us until we can forgive one another. And the reward in our religion to try to bring this forgiveness between one another is incredibly powerful. And the cinematic will the Allahu Allah He said Manasa Dana theanine, our call hula who equally can imagine it.

00:24:19--> 00:24:21

He said whoever brings peace between two people.

00:24:22--> 00:24:32

Then Allah subhanaw taala will give them the reward, as though they freed a slave for every word that they said.

00:24:33--> 00:25:00

If you spent half an hour, speaking to two brothers, to bring them together, in that half an hour, you might say 10,000 Words for each word Allah will give you the reward that is equivalent of freeing a slave for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. That is a powerful reward because our religion wants us not to be sitting on the sideline. Not to be spreading the gossip. Not to be

00:25:00--> 00:25:18

Adding fuel to the fire between two people, but to be actively getting involved, to bring love between two Muslims and the reward of that is tremendous. May Allah subhanaw taala bring love between all of our hearts. I mean, Cody has talked about the will that comes through in order for him
