In alladhina mina Mina TB Lady metastable [???]a de Mello butanna. Wait mama Bina. So the colonial army, respected scholars, beloved teachers, elders and brothers in Islam. In our relation with each other, there are certain stages. The first stage, and the highest stage is where a person is ready to do anything for another person, even if it inconveniences him. And the greatest manifestation and the greatest example to this are the Sahaba is one Allahu taala much means especially the people of unsolved and Allah tala actually mentions that in the Holy Quran. When you see rune Allah unforeseen, well, Ocala beam kasasa and they give priority to others, even when inconvenience has to
reach them. And to understand this, let us look at the incident that occurred at the time of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received some wealth. So he called the people of unser. And he told them that look, I created brotherhood amongst the people of Mecca and the people of Medina.
But if you allow me to give all of this wealth to the people of Makkah, then they will become independent, and they won't have to rely on you. So the people have unser replied that oh prophet of Allah, you can give all of that wealth to the people of Makkah, and we will still take care of them, we will carry on with the Brotherhood that you created amongst ourselves. So that is why you
cannot beam kasasa that is the first stage talking about the second stage. It is where you love for your brother, what you love for yourself. You prefer for your brother, what you prefer for yourself. And these are actually the words of the hadith of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Nah, you mean
Hebrew enough, see, a person cannot be a true believer until and unless he loves for his brother, what he loves for himself. To understand this. Let us look at this example. You have a roti with you, you have a bread with you, and you find someone who's hungry. So you give him the whole of the bread or you give him that whole roti that is the first stage. But if you give him half roti and you keep half by yourself, that is the second stage. You love for your brother, what you love for yourself, talking about the third stage, and it is the most important stage. And that is actually the topic of my talk today and it is to not harm others. If you can benefit someone, it's okay. But
don't be from that group, where you start harming someone else. Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has put so much of emphasis on this aspect. And we can understand that from the Hadith which I will present to you. Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
a good Muslim is He who does not harm others, or who does not return the harm, who doesn't take revenge? He's a good Muslim. Upon one occasion prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is asked, Are you Islamia?
A ulis. Islamia a prophet of Allah if I have to put it in my translation of Prophet of Allah Who is the best Muslim in a Muslim, a prophet of Allah Who is the best Muslim in Emma's day. Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam replied a Muslim woman Saleemul Muslim una melissani were the best Muslim in MSL is that Muslim who doesn't harm other Muslims with his hands or with his staff?
In another nation civil weddings, but Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam said, I will Muslim woman Solomon nasce Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alison generalized it that a good Muslim is He Who doesn't harm anyone forget about harming a Muslim who doesn't harm the general public with his hands or with his tongue. In another Hadith it comes prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi Salaam said that there are various stages of Eman the greatest of which is to pray kalama La ilaha illa Allah and the lowest of which is to remove imata to ladhani. To remove an obstacle to remove an offensive object from the past, so it doesn't harm someone else. So these are the three stages we have in the relation with
each other. Imam Hassan Ali, our spiritual doctor, he explains this whole concept so beautifully. He says that when you go
into the jungle, you are going to find three kinds of animals. Number one, those animals that benefit others like the goat. It gives you milk like the sheep. You can enjoy the dry like the cow or the Buffalo. We don't have to talk about it ribeye and porterhouse, and I don't know what kind of steak we make out of those, those animals, right? They benefit us. That's the first stage. That's the first kind of animal. The second kind of animals you find in the jungle are those who harm others, like the lion, the scorpion, the snake, the hyena, the wild dogs, they harm others. And then Imam Hassan. Ali mentioned that they are this third kind of animals that we do not know anything
about them, and they don't know anything about us. So your mom has Ali Rahmatullah. Lee says that we are humans, obviously, we are better than animals. But if you have to be like some animals, then be like those animals that benefit others. And don't be like those animals who harm others.
So that is what Imam ghazali Rahmatullah they experience and respected elders and friends. Islam has put so much of emphasis emphasis on this aspect. We can even understand that from the idea of other eyeshadow, the amount Alanna that I share the amount Allah mentions that Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam used to wake up for tahajjud and when he used to wake up for 30, but obviously there was hazard ISIS house was very small. So Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam used to perform his Salah, and somehow in his Salah, he used to indicate to us that I shot that I want to make my such that so move your Lake, that that is the house of that I share the data, so that I shall mentions
that when prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam used to open the door, or when he used to close the door for the hell Baba Gwadar
barber. He used to quietly open the door and he used to quietly close the door wife say doesn't disturb the sleep of other eyeshadow the amount Anna look at how consider a prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in not disturbing the sleep of the Allahu taala how do we enter our homes today after we have our boys night out? Has Ravi ganic Dharma in a way there is no some playing loudly. There is music playing loudly the parents know that hazard has come back. So that is what prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us so respected elders and friends, if we can be from the group that benefits others, let us not be from the group that harms others. And so
Pamela the scholars have mentioned that if you are performing a novel ibadah novel act it is rewarding. But if it is harmful, if it is harming someone, it is for us it is mandatory upon you to stop that novelette kissing is what it is rewarding, right? But if you have to reach there by harming someone by fighting with someone, then it is forced upon you to live that
reading Quran loudly. Abu Bakar used to read Quran loggly reading Quran loudly it is an affiliate it can gain you rewards. But if you're reading Quran loudly harm someone is in the masjid who's performing his Salah, which is disturbing someone sleep then it is far as upon you to read the Quran quiet. Look at what prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when one has to come to the masjid, he shouldn't eat raw onions or garlic Why? If someone has to stand next to him and he has to smell it will harm him. The Judas actually mentioned and that is under this idea that the police have the right to actually go and talk to this person that my brother You shouldn't come to
the masjid because you're harming others, so respected elders and friends. Let us become from those who benefit others and let us not be from those who harm others. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the ability to practice on whatever has been said. Amen.
