Series: Jamal Zarabozo - Envy
Cinema in the beginning, Mohammed
shala. Today we'll continue with our fourth lecture in our series on.
And you shall love today's
show, we want to start by continuing with our discussion from last time.
And last time we spoke about the different levels of hazards and how sometimes when that hazard enters into the heart of the person,
sometimes then the person, for example, will do
what he can. And when he recognizes that somebody else has a bounty that he's envious of, sometimes HE'LL DO what He what he can to maybe remove that bounty from the other person without necessarily destroying the bounty.
In other case, he may try to remove that bounty from the other person and try to get it for himself. And in the third case, he may try to remove that bounty from the other person and just destroys about universal.
And as I said, this probably as a reflection of a disease, this is probably the worst aspect of hazards were
about itself, the person is so upset and so miserable, that he just wants to see that bounty destroyed, even if it doesn't go to anyone else, even if nobody else can benefit from it.
So he hates the person who loves the bounty and he hates the bounty itself. He just wants to see that bounty destroyed.
But we'll start with the important question of,
obviously, the feelings of hazard could enter into anybody's heart in anybody's mind.
So we left off with the important question of if it is in somebody's mind,
because even thoughts like sugar coffee can enter into somebody's mind. So, if it is
entered into somebody's mind,
and let's say he does not take any steps, he does not act upon that.
Is this also a sin or what what is his situation in such a case.
So, it has an investment in one time to cover or conceal a hasit in your heart, for it will not harm you, as long as it does not go upon your tongue or you act upon it by your head.
And then prevail. Even I have also said the cure for the hazard is its concealment,
has appointed that they're both making all the more explicitly by it has an obesity.
If you feel it in your heart and conceal it, keep it there, don't let it Don't let it affect your speech, don't let it affect your your actions
and then inshallah it will not cause any harm to you.
Once obviously, once it moves on to actions that you do with something you say or something you do, obviously, and this comes to a different level and this will be without any questions.
Now one of the basis for this view, is the heat of the process and recorded by
the power so Selim said in the last video was an image in my head, V and prusa, Merlin Tamil secundum
Verily, Allah has overlooked for myeloma, what their souls think about as long as they do not act on it or speak about. So, if
an animal has to be now there's of course, certain interpretations or certain understandings of this heady that we have the world, but there has to be speaking about what has not been confusing and hesitant in your heart. My husband, he said that what the husband said is correct.
In the sense that when someone can feel that has it in his heart, this means that he dislikes this feeling of it.
So once he dislikes this feeling of it hesitant tries to conceal it, then yes, definitely, there's no question inshallah that he will not be blamed with it.
So, it is possible obviously, it is possible that something into somebody's heart
and He shall as long as that person realizes the role in it and does not act upon it and does not say anything based on that feeling. Then inshallah this fleeting
feeling and this fleeting emotion that enters in his heart and soul of the person will not be sinful for and this obviously it hasn't this could happen to anyone.
As we said your feelings or thoughts of cooperation
Can Happen to anyone's obviously, the feelings of hazard could enter someone's heart.
But if it is just a fleeting emotion, something that just passes and the person consumes it does not act upon it does not speak based on that feeling, inshallah, then he's not held responsible for that. And in First of all,
he will not be sinful. However, there are different levels, with respect even to just this feeling in the heart. Because if this feeling into the heart, and the person does not object to it, and does not consume it, as it has it, or does not have any feeling about it,
then it could be, in fact, a little slower. As we'll see, the majority of disclosure will say that,
for example, someone has the feelings of an acid in his heart. And he has no objection to it, he likes this feeling of hating someone for what he has. And so he allows that feeling to be in his heart, and less, maybe necessity, less is more, but he has no objections to it any kind of enjoys this feeling that he has towards somebody else, then in this matter, this is no different cases.
It is not the one who feels that it's wrong. And so therefore, he tries to conceal and tries to cover it up, and make sure that it doesn't have any effect on his actions or his statements or this person. Actually, you can say maybe he's kind of enjoying it or he has no problem with a vector is feeling this hazard towards somebody else, and through some bounces that somebody else has received. So, in this case, even if this person does not act upon it, and even if this person does not speak any words based on that feeling of hazard.
But he has no objection to it,
then according to the majority, as well as although there is some differences of opinion on this case, but it seems that they have
this is this is also a sin, this is in a self decision. And even Rajat said that if it is not a sin, even if it is not
the person who allows us to occur to him, so he says, even says that it is very rare that this person then will be safe from committing any sin and committing any action towards his brother based on this MV. So therefore, in the end, he says it will become definitive soon without an equation. So either you're in a situation where there's no question that it's a sin, or obviously, obviously, if you don't do anything about it, it may easily lead you to do some act or speak something which will make it then without any questions.
And will have to be points out that
if you have that feeling in your heart, and your heart towards someone, even if you don't act upon it,
but you enjoying the feeling, and you have no problem with a feeling heart has to be said this is a sin
between you and others.
And the reason this is making this point, so as long as you do not act upon or do something, any action with respect to this is assumed between your analysis. So what he means by that, or the point that he's making is this therefore the repentance is between you and Allah.
If you commit a sin towards somebody else, if you do something wrong towards somebody else, some action,
as all of you are familiar with, I believe, the acts of repentance, then if you do some something wrong towards somebody else, then you should seek His forgiveness if possible. And again, this has also its principles related to do not need to get into them right now. But if possible, you should seek that person's forgiveness in this life, before we make a lesson how to work the island.
But in this case, it has been saying that this is actually seen as a sin, you could say towards was brother but in reality that's just between the person, the individual and Allah subhana wa. So therefore the person just repent to Allah subhana wa sallam.
And he doesn't have to actually go out and tell the person that I had this feeling towards you, and please forgive me so forth, because he did not act upon it. He did not take any steps. So therefore his repentance is just between him and Allah Subhana with that.
So the big issue,
as we said, all sorts of emotions, all sorts of thoughts can come to a person's mind into his heart.
And the big issue is, what does the person do with respect to those feelings and those emotions that make them fleeting because
he allows them to build and grow the obviously his company, but if he recognizes
if he recognizes the evil that is in his heart
and tries to fix it.
To conceal it, then insha Allah, He will not be sinful. So we have, we have, for example, those people who it comes fleetingly to them, and they are able to conceal it, it is just something like passing like feelings of shame.
So they will not be held responsible for that. Well, on the other hand, we have those people who even if they will act upon it, they like the feeling, they not upset with the feeling. And so therefore, even though they have this disease in their heart, they are according to the majority of scores, they are committing a sin, and as a member as observed, then I will also be very easy for them afterwards to actually act upon that. And, therefore, we can say compounders in by doing something openly, which is without any questions.
Now, there are those people who do get this feeling of envy in their hearts,
and then recognize the fact that it isn't.
But unfortunately, they cannot control it again, you don't act upon it. They don't speak they don't say any, for example, they don't back by to one that they are envious of to try to harm the person or the bounty that he's received. So they recognize the wrong in their heart, but they cannot control it. In other words, they try to remove that feeling from the heart, but they cannot remove it.
So they recognize the wrong to not accept it. But at the same time, they're not strong enough to remove that feeling in their heart so that the feeling is staying with them.
So these people inshallah, inshallah, these people are not sinful for that thing, which they cannot control.
They're recognizing it as wrong. Now, of course, everyone.
Everyone has to be honest with themselves.
Everyone has to be truly honest with themselves and see whether or not they're actually acting upon that hazard whether or not they're speaking words that are based on whether or not they are enjoying and hazard or whether or not they're truly trying to fight to happen in their heart.
And this is one of the most difficult things that human beings have to face. That we have to be honest with respect to themselves.
Human beings, many times make excuses for themselves, cover up their own faults and say, Oh, no, there's nothing wrong with is not that level of acid may even act upon the husband and still speak to them. So or no, it's not affecting me I don't have precedence over. So when we talk about these different states,
a very important aspect is that the individuals have to be honest with themselves.
Do you think that this will go without saying because,
you know, for someone to be dishonest to themselves, who's hurting,
is only hurting himself, but that is the nature of these diseases of the heart, like someone who smokes for example,
the main person is what we know about secondhand smoke and so forth.
But the main person that concerns he is himself.
So, it is it does happen to people hurt themselves. Even though we consider human beings, rational human beings and all all of economics is built on the assumption that human beings are rational human being human beings to things that trip themselves, and they are not honest with themselves.
First people in show love and purify their souls. inshallah, they are the people who can be honest with themselves, truly so critical, without going to extreme making excuses for themselves.
overly criticizing themselves to such as people due to such an extent that they're in a state of despair, and they cannot do anything, you cannot even act for the sake of
someone who is honest with himself and finds that he has this meaning of it.
And he knows it's wrong and he's trying to control but he's not able to control it. There inshallah, in a state like that the person is not held simple and not held responsible for something that is beyond his means.
That you can rely on us and he knows that he has tried his best, but it is something beyond his means. And Allah subhana wa tada does not burden the soul.
The soul responsible for something that is beyond his means that the evil comes about when the person acts upon his hustle. Not when it's not when it's just in the heart.
Now, what I'm saying
should not be, especially if you're familiar with even other writings should not be taken to contradict what we said earlier. The person is pleased with what is in his heart. He is still sinful if it doesn't, hasn't in his heart and He knows is a sin but
he is still sinful. But what I am referring to here
In general, a good husband cannot be controlled by a person, then the sin of a hazard is basically only when it is acted upon. And that is why in real time says that Allah subhana wa Taala does not tell us to seek refuge of the envious one. But Allah subhanho wa Taala does this to seek refuge of the envious one when he is being envious,
right from the verse of the Quran, woman surely has it in either has it from the evil of the envious one, when he envy
you because envy can exist in the heart, as we said, and we can enter into anybody's heart. But as long as the person is not speaking upon it or acting upon it, then he's not necessarily harming anybody else. So we seek refuge, not from the envy in other people's heart, but from the envy when it is being acted upon when the person is acting upon the envy that is his heart. So in other
words, the people we can see,
recognize what has it in their heart, they see that they have this feeling of heart.
And they do their best to remove this hazard from themselves.
Now, what this last group of people
described by many of the olema, who discuss this concept of a hazard, and what distinguishes this group of people, what system apart as one of the best groups of people is that Rob, because of that feeling of it has to get tried to counter that feeling of a hazard by turning towards that people, that person
that they envy and treat them in the best possible fashion.
So now, we're talking about the situation will hazard event to the heart, the person has not acted upon, has not spoken based on it.
But because he knows that he has had that feeling, to completely counter their feelings. And to make sure that there's no negative ramifications that have come from the heart.
They make sure that they deal with that person
for whom they had envy in the best possible way, they will make up for that person. Imagine that and see what a great step
You want to make sure that this has it is not a sin, you try to control it in your heart, one of the best things that you can do is I love to really make sure that there's no sin upon you because of the speeding that has that if you really want to make sure
when you deal with that person for whom you felt this hazard for
dealing with him in a special way. You make sure to be nice to him. And you'll make the offer because this is the most you want to really do an act, which is sincere between you and others.
The other person has no idea that you felt this message.
And so now when you're doing an act, which is just between you and others, only you will notice
that this person has entered in your heart, you do this act between yourself
and you're sincerely meant to offer the other person.
So this is one of the best.
This rule insha Allah, make sure guarantee this anything you will have said that you might have had in your heart insha Allah is going to be removed by this by this drive that you make for the person. And in addition to that, you speak well of the other person, you speak well, of the bounties that Allah subhanaw taala has given that other person and you make to hide that Allah subhanho wa Taala continues to bless him and blesses him in particular, in particular for that bounty, or those bounties for which you had
with some of the writers that this category of people who's among the people with the highest level of faith, and they fulfill the requirements of a man that they love for their brothers, what they love for themselves.
So in some way we can say that the feeling of it has it can enter anybody's heart. It doesn't matter how pious you might be, because as we said, even sugar can cover some emotion, some feelings of shirking purpose, some ideas, some thoughts shut down to put those into anybody's hearts of mine.
So the question is not simply the existence This came into your heart. But the question now is what
and the most important aspect of course,
and the most important approach to it is that you recognize that this is a great disease.
You have to recognize that this is a great disease and so therefore, you have to work to remove it from your heart and this
This is of course, jihad. This is one of the aspects of jihad to struggle to strive to work, to purify your soul, to sacrifice for the sake of Allah subhana wa.
So when this painting enters into your heart,
the most important thing that you have to do is recognize that it is a great disease.
And so therefore, to try to do your best to remove it, from your heart, make this
one of the rules by which
you will recognize what a dangerous and harmful disease This is, is by looking at some of the examples of it has in the ramifications of it hasn't that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us in the Quran and in the head is the process.
The first example that we can take, and which may Allah have pointed to is the example of a ship on
Satan, the devil.
The majority of the Ummah are in agreement that
ternal feelings who can say in the shift on led him to disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala
and led him to become the most oppressed and most evil creature in existence. And these are the two diseases of hazard and the hazard envy and arrogance and pride.
What do we see from that?
Is this Alyson Hello, Donna blessed Adam to them? By giving him many virtues by giving him notes, for example, by giving him the honor of being frustrated too, but over and over by the angels, we should see that time and those in the company of the angels were ordered to Prostrate to Adam at ease.
And the cellphone are fused across the two atoms.
And we see from the same phone response that his response shows that he's feeling that Allah subhanaw taala is giving Adam something giving an or bounty that she found himself feels is more deserving.
So he is envious of this bounty that Allah Subhana Allah has given
to them. So Lesson One was to either tells us and put on God mm and
Allah subhanho wa Taala describing the situation in the Quran, Allah subhana wa tada said that he said to a ship on what has prevented you from prostrating when I've already had to do so. And the shutdown replies,
the reason why he didn't trust me, I'm better than him. You've created me from fire, and you have created him from clay.
So in other words, as we said, he thinks that Alyssa henwood, God is giving Adam
a bounty that he's more deserving of, or the team thinks he's better than Adam Anisa them so he's envious of this bounty that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given Adam to them, and because of this envy, because of this disease in his heart, is refused to obey Allah subhanaw taala and as a result of his refusal to obey Allah subhanaw taala even though even though he knows that Allah subhanaw taala is true, right? There's no question of whether or not the chiffon knows whether Layla has a lot is true or not. He knows all most of what that is,
but out of the diseases in his heart to refuse to submit to all this.
And so therefore, he became the greatest of all of the evil creatures that Allah subhanho wa Taala has ever created.
From the early existence of mankind, we can we can see how this disease can penetrate into the hearts of human beings
and can even destroy some of the courses bonds.
can even pick Brother against brother,
Ellison hanworth dad gives us a story to put on sort of the mega
tells us about the two sons of Adam,
Cain and Abel
destroys well known they both work to give a sacrifice to Allah subhana wa tada
and Alyssa was accepted the sacrifice of one of them
due to his sincerity, for his feeling of trying to please Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala rejected the sacrifice of the other person
The other brother
just came the one whose sacrifice was rejected. This led him to be completely envious and resentful of what his brother did.
So here's a pilgrim are very close, right there are brothers and they are giving a sacrifice to a listen, I know what to listen to a dialect accepted from one and rejects it from the other.
And what does this lead him to do? The one whose sacrifice was rejected, this leads him actually to kill his brother
Cheryl is so filled with this, with this anger and with this envy and this resentment towards his brother,
that his soul doesn't that this is a good thing and Allah subhanho wa Taala for towards the hoonah super
popular hope us Birmingham City. So the soul of the other encouraged him and made him into him the murder of his brother,
this disease in his heart, the stimulus told him that this is a good thing to do, basically
made it to him to be something good. And except for him, that he should kill his brother. So therefore Allah subhanho wa Taala says so he murdered him and became one of the wounds
It's bad enough that his sacrifice wasn't accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala.
But don't be the envy that he felt towards his brother, he ended up killing his brother. And then Allah subhana wa tada sees, and this made him one of the losers.
So, implication of this, as though the professor didn't say that this was an act that was the result of envy of has to be in another city, but from Allah subhanaw taala, rooting for us by her middle class, and he became one of the losers.
So his sacrifice was not accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. But there is room now he can maybe make another sacrifice, you can correct them so he can change his ways. But he allowed this to lead him to such a sin to such a state of mind in the state of life that led him to kill his brother. So let's see what God says then for us but then because of this has it because of this disease. And what this disease led to Allah subhanho wa Taala describes him as then becoming one of the reasons Allah subhana wa Allah
in the Quran also
tells us the story of the brothers abusive buddies.
They were envious of the love that
their father had for Easter babysit him and for his younger brother.
So listen, Hannah with Darla gives us this story in the pot. And of course the story of usurper is part of it. Alyssa hen with dialysis is
a venum in hospital in
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, tells us in the Quran that the brothers of Musa said that truly Joseph and his brother are dear to our father than we are, we are a strong group.
Suddenly, our Father is in plein air.
So then the first edition they said the
or cast them out to some other lands so that the favor of our father may be given to you alone. And after that you will be righteous.
they say the first day said either kill him or throw him off to another man. And what is the goal? What is the purpose of them, the love of your father would be just for you, the other brothers.
So this is another obvious case of envy. They were envious of the feeling that their father had towards a brother use.
And of course that feeling that
their father had towards their brother, yes, it was because of the wishes of users.
But instead of seeing that they all they could see was that their father loved their brother.
And so therefore they could not stand to see that greater love for use of and the resources they fought it to actually kill us or to throw them off to some other thinking therefore, they destroy this bounty that the
father had this beloved Son of the Father, thinking therefore that that will make it right and then their father would love for them.
So here's another act not a crime
They didn't actually, like the son of Adam killed his brother. But they didn't mind actually, if they did kill him, they put him out and put them in a world where he'd be killed or not, this really wasn't a very conservative. so here we can see how this feeling of it has
been in the heart. Once people speak about diseases in the heart, we see immediately how these diseases are actually very dangerous. And these can lead to crimes,
heinous crimes, crimes that will be disastrous for the individual above this life, and the hereafter. And by the way, this from thinking that these are like stories of the Koran or stories of rules, and then these kinds of things don't happen anymore.
But the idea of envy,
leading to such blatant and resentment that it actually needs to murder, this is something that still continues today.
Again, home with the shokan has in his book on, on his end, he has many examples. He has a chapter actually. And that were called the crimes of envy. Because many examples of how envy can even lead to murder. The first section is about murder, that is as a result of envy. People kill somebody else. And then when they're asked in a Why did you actually kill them what was really the driving force behind you, they finally admit that they were envious of the other person.
Like, for example, somebody drove his car into another person just because he was he was envious of his basketball skills, and the fact that he was a handsome person who is handsome and had basketball skills. And in other cases, a woman killed her roommate.
For the same kind of reason that she proposed, remember the same kind of reason that she was envious of her beauty, an envious of the fact that she was prettier than her. Actually, there's one story that he gives. And, again, sometimes difficult to recognize what does envy What does an envy and so forth. But if this, if this story is a an example of envy, then it shows us how dangerous and how distorted we can see how distorted it makes the human being and the human human mind.
Again, as I said, this is truly a case of hazard is an interesting story.
And should make us all reflect upon how, how sick really hasn't can make someone feel. And just goes back to World War Two.
There was a boat, which was torpedoed
in the Indian Ocean.
And one of the one of the persons who survived this attack, his name was Walter Gibson, he wrote a book about it called the boat. So after the torpedo, there was 135.
survivors who were on the raft,
who are trying to live on the ocean survive, so until they would be until they would be rescued.
And he said that among there's many interesting points and what he said, but he said, one of the things that occurred is that when, when they were on these routes trying to survive,
and they were out there for many days, sooner or later, some of the people would get to the point
that they felt that they could no longer live, they can no longer they felt that they can no longer put up with what's what they're facing. In other words, they felt the death would be easier than what they're facing the lack of food and the heat and everything.
So when they would get to that point, they felt that they could no longer survive, they would just simply jump into the ocean, they would jump off the raft and jump into the ocean.
And so we have to get some describes know
And he wrote that there was a strange feature of every suicide these people who were at the final point of desperation, they could no longer put up with their situation and they would jump off the route to kill themselves. He said there was a strange feature.
As people decided to jump overboard, they seem to resent the fact that others were being left with a chance of safety.
They were trying to seize the rations and flew them overboard, they will try to make the last action in the birth the permanence of the bone which would let in the world.
The man has always seemed to take the form that they must not go alone, but instead take everyone with them.
So this is truly case of envy,
that they are upset that this that they are giving up and they cannot survive and but these other people are going to continue to the raft and they might survive. So therefore they're trying their best to take the others with them.
Think about this, now they are killing themselves, they are committing suicide, there's nothing, you know, there's nothing they're going to gain from the animals living or dying or whatever or you know, if they could live the others live for 100 years, they, they are at the stage of taking their lives.
And yet, they resent the fact that other people are still going to continue and have the chance to survive. So they try to take the rations and try to lead water into the Rock and so forth, just to make sure that these others cannot survive. And as I said, if this is really positive, this is
just the basically this the way he described it as to how Walter Gibson, one of the survivors, how he described it, this is when it hasn't, this shows us how, how sick, this disease can make some I mean, there's no purpose, no benefit, whatsoever, they can, they could come to these people anyway, by the action that they're taking, they are taking themselves to their death, but they cannot stand the fact that the others are going to be able possibly to survive. And so, therefore, they try to take them, take them with a number of lessons that we can get from these examples from the Quranic examples. And in particular, first of all, we see that it has it is a characteristic of the greatest
evil equation that
we see that it has, it is a characteristics characteristic of a ship on
this fact, in itself, I would hope would lead many people, many Muslims or any believer
to try to free himself from this disease, diagnosis related to shut down in
this dial it says not to fall in the footsteps of a chiffon. He is to warn about or clear
in his footsteps, and obviously not to emulate not to become like this.
So this is when we have the feeling of a hazard.
We find this disease within our hearts, we should think to ourselves that Who are we behaving like I was behaving like the believers are behaving like the prophets? Or are we actually behaving like a ship? And obviously the answer is clear.
So therefore, whenever we have this feeling in our heart, we should do our best to remove it, if for no other reason
than to free ourselves to be to free ourselves from being like a ship on the sea. Also from these examples, is the power of hazards.
The ramifications of the hazard what it can lead to an actual event
is something very great and can be something horrendous.
Have you seen these examples in the Quran, the two sons of Adam and the sons of
the brothers, we see that it can break through perhaps the greatest bond that human beings have the blood relationship, the family and hasn't been destroyed even the family.
If it can destroy the family, obviously, it can also probably destroy the relationship between the bloomers as well.
So this means that this is in a very dangerous disease, a very harmful disease. No one should ever, ever find this within himself and be lackadaisical and think that was not a big deal and so forth. Especially if he finds himself speaking or acting upon it.
Because he doesn't know he can never know at the beginning of what is going to be the final step that he may do based on this hazard.
As we said they were willing to the Friends of us are willing to kill him they didn't mind if he died or not the son of Adam Kevin's brother, and we still find examples of people committing murder
because of it.
So it's never
it's never something to be taken lightly. It can have a strong effect as well as it can even break some of the strongest bonds that human beings
and affect this is another personally related point.
We should see in these examples. And
very often, if not the vast majority of the case
has that occurs among those people who are most similar to each other.
You know in it like blood blood relations like what we just suppose
they always talk about sibling sibling rivalry, they are very close to one another and they are naturally going to compete with one another or to judge one another against each other.
So this one has. As I said, this is something that usually occurs between people who are close enough close an age person.
Like brothers and sisters sibling relationship.
this kind of thing so. And what this means also is that if it can happen between brothers and sisters, it also can happen among close friends.
So, when you think of it, when you think about people who should be willing to have the list, those people who really don't want to harm those people who are closest to you, these are people who may end up harming the most because of your husband.
So this is, this is another point that if you're just think about it, this should keep you from allowing this disease to be because it may end up harming the people who are closest to you, and who actually you should have the best relationship with not going out and trying to harm them.
So in general, this feeling of it hassled is as I said, it is with respect to those people who there is some similarity between you and them some kind of level of competition, we can see that there is some reasonable level.
As one author wrote, now it is a non Muslim author, is it permissible to be envious of someone like wisdom recipe doesn't make more sense with most people, because
in general, we don't have a skill we don't have as a baby. So therefore, there's no real competition between him and us. This feeling of competition between him and also we don't feel for someone leaving this room is still, as is commonly the case, we may still feel that someone maybe is getting blessed and doesn't deserve and so forth. And even though we have no relationship with them, we may still feel towards them, initially, their boundaries would be destroyed. That feeling is strong. But the feeling of hesitant, especially the most dangerous hazard that is acted upon, is usually with respect to those people who are closest to you. And in fact, a study was done by Robert Frank
And he found this, most people
would agree or be happy to make less money As long as they need more money than the neighbors.
So again, there's people who are closest to the most people, they can compare themselves with their ability to make less total money, just as long as the lesser amount of money and still more than what the numbers make. Some other words, for example, they would prefer to make $85,000 a year, if their neighbors are making 75,000, they would be happier making $85,000 a year than making $100,000 a year if the neighbors are making $125,000 a year.
This feeling of competitiveness, which many times is close to, you just want to make sure that you are better off than those people around you. So when those people around you or being better off than, then this is when you start feeling resentment in your heart. And you don't want those people around you to be better off than you even though they're your friends. Maybe they even use your brothers and your sisters and your relatives. You don't want them to feel the be better off than you. And if they are, then the meaning of it has it comes to you. And oftentimes what this results in is the is if then some harm comes to them. And you start feeling some kind of pleasure. But one
philosopher he said that in the misfortune of our best friends, we always find something that is not displeasing to us.
In the misfortune of our best friends will always find something that is not pleasing to us.
This is a real disease. This is a real disease as well as the last one without and I hope this kind of disease is not the flip our Muslims and our on our brothers and sisters in Islam, that you get to that point where even those people who are your best friends who you should be closest to and have the most sincere kind of love and feelings for that when misfortune comes to them, you actually feel something good, some kind of pleasure. Now you are ahead of those people who are closest to you and those people who feel that you're competing with
another important, extremely important lesson that we can get from this incidence of hazard that we see and hold on is that the hazard can actually keep someone from following the Trump and has it can keep someone from following what is right. And what is the path that he's supposed to fall. We find this in the case of Russia.
As I said before, a shutdown no so Allah subhanho wa Taala is north of this command has come from Alyssa anodyne and Allah subhanaw taala system directly. What prevented you from frustrating when I ordered you to this
so this feeling of hazard is enough to keep someone from from following
if a person is not willing to follow the field, I mean, if a human being has given up that desire to for what is true, then really what value is there to human beings.
Those people who are sent to the Hellfire, those people whom we can see our value, and these are the people who have rejected and refuse to follow the truth.
And this can be the result of an acid.
We don't have the time to bring all of the verses of Quran discussed
in detail, but if we look at the Quran and the situation of bunnies right in,
and we see how Allah subhanho wa Taala had bless them over and over again. And we know that when they when the process before the presence of psyllium had had come.
We know that among the Arabs, those of us who are living among the Arabs, they used to tell that there is a prophet who is going to come.
And when he comes, we'll be successful, we will so forth. But when the from Hamas, acidum King.
And when they even recognize the truth of the premises, what was their reaction? Did they accept the problem? Did they follow the process of selling did they support the process
this profit had come to someone other than their own people other than from gun Israel other than from among the Jews, because this was not someone who came from among them, but actually came from the other what they call nowadays, the other came from the herbs, out of that hazard out of that envy Derek came to someone else, and not to them. They refuse to follow the truth, even though they could recognize the truth, even though they could recognize that the system was the prophet who was promised to come in who they were expecting
this disease or that hazard could be great enough
that it will keep them from accepting the truth.
You know, if you think a little bit more about the Muslims, the early Muslims, the first Muslims who accepted Islam,
they went from a state of
a state of ignorance to the state of Islam to submitting to listen to hate living only in Allah subhanho wa Taala and submitting only to listen to Allah. before they're worshipping idols, they were involved in all sorts of nonsense before Islam, and then Allah subhanho wa Taala guided into them and guided them to.
And you would think
you would think, for example, that the Jews and the Christians, the people of the book would recognize what happened to these people that this is, this is a great thing, even
if someone is just an unbiased observer, but he also believes in monotheism. And as soon as these people going from worshipping all these idols and saying, No, there's only one God. And in addition to that, they are saying this is the same God who sent Moses that he said his name, isn't it. And since all of
you would think you would think that they would at least be happy and proud of this record, look at these people have left for occasion they've left worshipping these idols and so forth. But that is not how Allah subhanho wa Taala describes many of the people of the
Alyson henner with the island's finances, with the casino, Derby know your donor coming
to see him
today in a little homeless.
Alyssa Alyssa henwick, God has ended even after the truth had been made clear to them. In other words, they know the truth of the penthouses and they know the truth of this, that is obviously being taught to know and the Muslims are following. Even though many of the people of the book Allah subhanaw taala says many of the people that wish that they could turn away and disbelievers after you have believed.
So listen, Henrik dial is saying that these people have gone from jelly or from worshipping all these idols instead of being accepted and applauded and approved by these people who also believe in monotheism, they claim instead of seeing what a great step they have taken,
Alicia handwerk goddesses have many of them wish that you would go back to Cooper and Alyssa henwood die. That is the reason why they're feeling that President An Indian person, out of envy from their own selves. To know you have gotten the truth. The truth is no longer with them. They no actually have to follow what you're following and submit them except what you're following. And this was too much for them. This was too much for them, the feeling of envy in their hearts.
This disease in their hearts was so great that this was too much, they could not follow the truth. They would not accept the truth, even though it is clear to them that this is the truth, but out of envy, they would not accept and follow.
This very clear point,
again should be enough for every individual to realize the danger of
that it has it is such that it can make someone reject and refuse to follow the truth, even though the truth is correct.
If the truth comes from someone that they don't like, if it comes from, in a way to them, that they don't like what someone else has this donkey instead of themselves. And so therefore, now they have to recognize that these people have this built in, they have the full, this bounty of Islam that these other people have, that could be sometimes too much in the heart of individuals. And so therefore they would prefer imagined they would prefer to reject the truth
and not follow the truth.
Simply out of envy in their hearts. This is what Allah subhanaw taala is clearly saying in this version of the product with the German low your donor American,
many of the people in the book wish that they could turn you away disbelievers Have you believed out of envy from their own selves, even after the truth has been made clear to them, sort of the look of this 109 just reflect Think about this.
if you do reflect upon it and get this point in mind, inshallah, that will keep you from allowing acid anytime it is in your heart to grow, and to develop, because it could be the most dangerous. As we started the beginning, there's some diseases that are most dangerous for human beings, it could be the most dangerous thing that every car could cause you, as you said, to reject the truth and multiple the truth, a new jewel into the Hellfire forever,
as Alyssa says about the brother of the son of Adam,
and he became one of the losers that could lead you to become one of the losers without any question.
He's actually which was pointed out so far, these are actually just some of the some of the evils of it.
There are numerous evils of a hazard, many of them
have pointed out,
for example, in a failure modes that
rarely occurs without
the associated feeling of goodwill, and hatred and malice.
And effect when we gave the definitions earlier, the German definition pointed this out explicitly, the feeling of malice and ill will,
from when when it hasn't developed in the heart, as it continues, it
almost always is going to be associated or accompanied, I should say, this feeling of hatred.
And when we spoke about the editing process,
in which the processor was giving us general guidance for how we as a Muslim should behave towards one another. And the headings begin to have the ability to not be envious of one another. Another thing that Muslims should never do also is to hate one another. So in the same,
the same idea. So just a few phrases after saying Do not be envious of one another, the process of them said
do not hate one another
and not hate one another.
one of the aspects of it hasn't.
And this is also pointed out by many authors, one of the aspects of it is that it needs to either
so happened in itself as a sin, but it can also lead to many other sins, one of them is hatred of your brother, Muslim, brother, for example, it can also lead to greed and other things. So it has it in itself is evil. And it can also lead to many other destructive evils in the heart as well not just actual act that you do based on the hazard but also other diseases of the heart can be the result of allowing a hazard to, to be in your heart. So obviously sinful has it could lead to other diseases such as hatred of others and greed and so forth. Therefore, obviously, from a societal point of view, it hasn't can be something very destructive.
It strikes at the very core of the feelings of love and compassion that believers should have towards one another.
Because there are many reasons for this, but one of the reasons for this, as some of the authors pointed out,
is that one of the things about the hazard is that the person is happy just to make other people don't have to make himself worse off, it doesn't even care if he makes himself worse off. He made him even sacrifice wealth to in order to bring harm to others,
to bring harm to the bounties other people have received. So it has a general societal level of harm
that it brings to the Muslim community as a whole. And again, we emphasize that point before when we talked about the policies of them in the headache in which he's talking about the social relations of the blues, he began by saying that he has
another headache, the policies for them said, the
local hospital will,
we'll go he'll halakhah.
will live in St. Pierre de, that whole agenda had
say said that coming upon you is the disease of the peoples before envy, and hatred and hazard.
And as we said, it has come to an end usually accompanied by hatred. So here are the promises psyllium is giving us perhaps the original disease, and then the result of disease that also comes about due to that original disease. So coming upon you as the disease of the peoples before envy and hatred, and the hatred is the thing that shapes
I do not say that it shoots here, but it shaves the religion. By the one in whose hand is my soul will not enter Paradise until you believe and will not believe till you love one another.
So at the end of the head is the Bossa cinemas telling us that you will enter Jimena until we believe, if you contrast that with what's the beginning of the Hadees. So at the end of the Hadith, the process is telling us the true love and to jinn until we believe. And the process element is saying this will not really believe until we love one another. So now if you contrast with that, you contrast that with what the postal system said at the beginning of the process, Adam was talking about that hustle
is basically he's telling us that these diseases in our in our heart of envy and hatred, then we're not going to have that proper love, they were supposed to have one another. And so therefore, these two diseases can keep us from entering antigen. This is the implication of what the film is telling us. And it's telling us that this disease
and its corresponding diseases,
or hatred, this is something that that cuts the dean customers in itself.
So here the process Adam is telling us that this disease is going to come upon this mission that they live with is coming to us it is like crawling, creeping towards us, this disease that afflicted the people before.
So nowadays, everyone's talking about the bird flu virus, and everyone is so concerned that this disease is coming and we have to take all the precautions, and so many animals are being slaughtered. Because we're here the postal system is warning us of the disease
and much more dangerous disease, obviously for our spiritual health. How do we respond to these rules of the process that are telling us that this disease is coming to this nation? And how do we respond? Are we taking the same kind of steps and precautions being as careful and being as aware to make sure that this disease, inshallah is not going to affect our hearts?
Unfortunately, we are now out of time, so we don't have to stop at this point. What we are doing right now obviously is we are discussing some of the evils of medicine and some of the things that that huson results in. And the goal of this inshallah is that
everyone will recognize that that hazard is something that they want to stay as far away from as possible.
They're not allowed to enter the hospital not be complacent and lackadaisical if it does have ever done, they were recognized for the evil disease there it is, and inshallah they will work their best to remove it from the hearts. So inshallah Next time we will continue with some of the some of the evil effects of the hazard and then speak about what should we do, if we are feeling these effects or feeling a hazard in our art, what are some of the things that we can go inshallah, actually, we will have fun, we've made this lecture series will be moving no more than six or seven. So therefore, some
The points like the causes of hazard we might have to go through quickly or skip them but inshallah they're all in my book, the evils of hazard which inshallah
someday shala will be made available and all the details and the further details which are in that book that these lectures are based on, and also the references and everything which, which you could read, which you will need to show, but now we'll have to end that point akula kolyada stuff, Rowley
