dear friends and my beloved elders in Islam.

00:00:58--> 00:01:23

Change has been an important aspect of humanity, as well as the history. Human beings, with the passing of time have evolved, and have also accepted change. In fact, from the very inception of the humanity, from the very beginning of the humanity, there's been various aspect of changes.

00:01:24--> 00:01:31

That is why when Allah subhanho wa Taala, created Adam alayhis salam, and sent him into this world

00:01:32--> 00:02:25

in the first revelation or in the first few revelation which Allah subhanho wa Taala sent to other Mali Salam. He didn't talk about Salah, zakaat Hajj, no, he taught him how to leave, how to survive, how to bury someone, how to build a house, how to light a fire. These are the things Allah subhanho wa Taala taught Adam alayhis salam that was at the beginning of the humanity. Time past, humans again evolved, and they became an expert in the field of infrastructure. They became professionals in building homes and houses in the mountains. And Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions that in the Holy Quran, regarding the people of odd at the time of who the Le Salaam, that these people were

00:02:25--> 00:03:03

professionals when it came to building homes, and they took pride over that. They used to say monoshock do mean Nakula Is there someone more stronger than us? Is there someone more greater than us in my 10 power? That is what they used to say. Then again, time evolves, and humans evolve. And there came a time where the human beings accepted a new change. And it was that they became experts in the field of agriculture. They became professionals in the field of agriculture, making a garden growing trees and plants.

00:03:04--> 00:03:17

And Allah Allah mentions that as well. In the Holy Quran in surah Saba, he says that this people this tribe was distinguished for their characteristic of agriculture,

00:03:18--> 00:03:47

for the expertise in agriculture, and historians mentioned to heilala that they structured and made the garden in such a way that there was no need of plucking a fruit from the tree. They structured in such a way that if a person passed from one end to the other end of the garden with a basket on his head, by the time he came out, the basket would be filled with fruits. That is how it was structured. Allah gave them that capability.

00:03:48--> 00:04:33

So humans have always accepted change, and even prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he never resisted change. When he saw there is something beneficial, he accepted it and implemented it. Look at this example. Upon one occasion, the people have arrived, the whole of Arabia decided to attack on the Muslims in Medina. At that time prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had less resources, physical, less physical resources, as well as human resource. So, Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took opinions of the Sahaba what to do at that salmaan falsetto the Alo Talon who stood up and he said that someone Farsi is from Persia. He gave an opinion that oh prophet

00:04:33--> 00:04:59

of Allah in Persia whenever a war is taking place, we dig a trench on the boundaries of the area of that particular area. So let us dig a trench on the boundaries of Medina. So now prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't say what we normally say to each other when we argue, ghetto ghetto kateri Kai, this is the way of others. We are not supposed to implement it. No Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam saw that this is

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

Something which is beneficial, let us implement it. He said that this is the right thing to do on this occasion, let us dig a trench. Do you know later on Abu sufian, who was from the side of the enemies, when he came in, he saw the trench. He actually said that this is not the way of the Arabs. He was right. It was the way of the Persians, but Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam implemented it, and it benefited the Muslims. So even prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never resisted change. If it was something beneficial, he accepted it. Then upon another occasion, Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent hundreds a bill Savita, tala who to learn the language of Hebrew,

00:05:45--> 00:06:30

the Hebrew language in order to support the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala in order to propagate the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala he didn't say to get okizu Barney, this is the language of others. It was required. He sent her JD along Talon to learn it and he mastered the whole language in three weeks, in three weeks after they'd learned the whole Hebrew. And then he came back and he and he assisted assisted the Prophet of Allah. On another occasion, Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam sent to Sahaba to jerash an area in Syria to learn the warfare to learn how to use the caterpillar so that the Sahaba could come back and teach the other Sahaba look Nabi sallallahu,

00:06:30--> 00:07:04

alayhi wa sallam is implementing the change which is required, you know, whenever a change has to come in the beginning there is going to be resistance, there is going to be reluctance there is going to be reservation, but with the passing of the time, people eventually end up accepting it at the time of the Abu Bakar or the along Talon who, after Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away. The first Bethel which are the who are the Alo Talon we had to face was with musella merkaba the person who falsely claimed to be a prophet of Allah.

00:07:05--> 00:07:23

So other Abu Bakar went and they fought and in that battle others Abu Bakar lost 500 companions, out of which so many of them were part of the Quran, the Quran which we see in front of us, they were the whole path. So that tomorrow the Talon got worried he goes to other Abu Bakar and he says to him that aboubaker

00:07:24--> 00:07:46

if this is what keeps happening, then we are going to lose Quran. Let us combine the Quran in a format of moose half. So that Abubakar resistance, he said No How can I do something which the Prophet of Allah didn't do, but later on other the bouvardia longtown, who gave a thought that no, this is something beneficial, this is something beneficial, he caught the tumor

00:07:47--> 00:08:30

and he gave him a go ahead with that. So, this Quran, which we see in front of us, there was a difference of opinion in that as well, whether it should be combined or not, the glasses which you are putting on, there was a difference of opinion amongst the scholars regarding that as well. When when the glasses eventually came, there was a difference of opinion, but with the passing of time, according to the need according to the requirement, the change is supposed to be accepted. Now, from all these examples, we learn one thing and one golden principle and it is that whenever we see something new or whenever we see a change, the golden principle is is it something which is more

00:08:30--> 00:09:00

beneficial or more harmful? If it is something which is more beneficial, we should implement it, is it something which is in line with the teachings of Prophet Muhammad? sallallahu alayhi wasallam Yes, it is in line with the teachings of Prophet Mohammed Salah lower Islam, that is implemented, that is how change should be accepted. And the reason why I'm talking about this, this change and accepting of new challenges or new new new theories on new technology coming forward to us is because right now,

00:09:01--> 00:09:30

inshallah this week and even the next ban which are given this Masjid will be on the same topic. The the oma has implemented one change every community every society has accepted one change and do you know what the changes it is widespread? It is the change of social media. We have all accepted it. Let us make a quick survey. How many of us have phones here in this gathering? Raise your hands how many of us have phones?

00:09:31--> 00:09:59

machine Mashallah, look at the hands. How many of us on WhatsApp? I don't have to ask Alhamdulillah. How many of us on Facebook on that one, I leave it up to the youngsters they must be on Facebook, not the elderly people of this society. Normally they are on Facebook. So we can see in this survey, we have implemented this change. We have accepted it. Now what is social media? Social media is a tool or a way or an application through which

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

You create, share, exchange communication, ideas, images, photos, videos, that includes Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, all these applications you see in front of you, that is social media. Do you know if Facebook was a country, if Facebook was a country, it was going to be a country with the largest population in the world right now, there are so many users on Facebook, even WhatsApp, it was going to be the country with the largest population in the world. That is how widespread it is. And that is how we have accepted it.

00:10:38--> 00:11:17

Respected elders and friends. Now we have all understood that we are on social media, what next? What are we supposed to do with that? You know, so many people say that it is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so many people say that it is it is a curse from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Only Allah knows if it is a blessing, it is a curse, because those were those who say that it is a blessing they write those who say it is a curse, they also write because sometimes through social media, you can connect yourself to someone who's 1000 miles away from you. And because of social media, you disconnect yourself from someone who's seated right next to next. So it is a blessing or

00:11:17--> 00:12:07

a curse. Only Allah subhanho wa Taala knows. And according to one survey, it is said the survey was made a few years ago, after every 228 messages. One verbal communication takes place. One verbal call takes place. Do you know what that means? Most of our conversations are taking place through texting each other Gone are the days when we used to meet each other and discuss important matters. Most of the matters are discussed through social media and then one call. So that shows how widespread social media is. And why should let's say no one can run away from it. Okay, no one can run away. And why should what someone run away from it? Why should one run away from the luxury of

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

connecting to other Muslim Brothers around the globe? Why should one run away from knowing what is happening to other Muslim brothers? If something happens in Majid Aqsa, we get to know about it. If one Palestinian is tortured or killed unjustly by the Israel regime, we get to know about it and we can put pressure through social media by making that video go viral. Right, that is what happens nowadays. And you do you know the basis the the basis of this whole aspect, the basis, the Hadith, the basic Hadees, which tells us or informs us about social media. Other Mufti Shafi Rahmatullah, YALI also supports the Saudis. He says that after every fudger, Salah Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu

00:12:55--> 00:13:17

wasallam used to sit with the Sahaba and he used to ask them, what is happening with that brother? What is happening with that Brother, what is happening to that person, what is happening to that place, and the Sahaba would inform and then a B Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam would comment or give a solution. So the truth is Shafi Rahmatullah Allah says that this hadith is the basis of social media.

00:13:19--> 00:13:54

And so Hannah law Look at the beautiful religion of Islam. Whenever Islam gives us a command, it gives us the etiquette of that particular command. So do you think social media can be left out and attended or without any etiquettes or without any decoration? It can be. Look at this beautiful hadith of Nabi Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon one occasion Nabi sallallahu alyssum tells the Sahaba iakovos julu Sufi to ruqyah abstain from creating gatherings in the streets.

00:13:55--> 00:14:37

abstain from creating gatherings in the streets. So the Sahaba said Marlin Allah Buddha Allah now prophet of Allah, don't take this away from us. We really need to meet each other, communicate with each other, update each other, but tell us of a way that we do it and we do it in the right way. So Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said that whenever you are standing there on the street, make sure you lower your plane make sure you don't have someone American maruf and join people towards good Now you only the moon car stop people from doing evil. So now we sell a lot of value Islam taught them the etiquettes of standing on the streets and that is what I want to talk about. In the

00:14:37--> 00:14:59

next gathering which will be after two weeks inshallah the etiquettes of social media. today. I put emphasis on the fact that we have implemented the change it is in us, let us not run away from it. rather let us learn how to use it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala guide us And may Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the ability to practice on whatever has been said. Meanwhile through that 100 Allah European
