woman you to Allah hora Zulu Coco differs 1000 avina

00:01:29--> 00:01:30


00:01:33--> 00:01:34

My dear brothers and sisters,

00:01:37--> 00:01:41

Allah subhanho wa Taala created us human beings

00:01:43--> 00:01:44

as social beings

00:01:48--> 00:01:49

created us

00:01:52--> 00:01:53

do not live alone

00:01:55--> 00:01:56

but to live in society

00:01:58--> 00:01:59

and to interact with one another.

00:02:02--> 00:02:04

As such we will have relationships

00:02:07--> 00:02:08

whether they are blood releasing

00:02:10--> 00:02:13

or releases that we meet with others,

00:02:15--> 00:02:21

friends, coworkers, classmates, acquaintances, neighbors

00:02:23--> 00:02:25

and so, as a result

00:02:28--> 00:02:30

because we human beings are different

00:02:32--> 00:02:35

and everyone has his own personality.

00:02:37--> 00:02:38

These relationships

00:02:39--> 00:02:40

will come with tension

00:02:42--> 00:02:43

will come with friction.

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

As Allah subhana wa tada says, watch I Lena Tao gakuen Libra when 15 attend otoscopy rune

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

and we meet some of you to be a fitna for other

00:03:05--> 00:03:06

Will You Be patient.

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

And so my dear brothers and sisters,

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

when we lose sight

00:03:23--> 00:03:28

when we lose sight of the fact that Allah subhana wa Taala is watching us.

00:03:30--> 00:03:32

And when we start to sense

00:03:34--> 00:03:38

the relationships that we have with others.

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

Python pounces on the opportunity.

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

And he sees it

00:03:46--> 00:03:47


00:03:48--> 00:03:49

an opportunity

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

to cause enmity between us

00:03:54--> 00:03:55

to take advantage

00:03:56--> 00:03:57

of that friction,

00:03:59--> 00:04:04

to cause us to transgress against one another.

00:04:05--> 00:04:24

And so in every relationship, whether it be between a husband and a wife, whether it be between two brothers, sisters, whether it be between one relative and the other, between two neighbors, between two co workers, between two acquaintances.

00:04:26--> 00:04:30

Whatever it be, when that relationship goes sour,

00:04:33--> 00:04:38

you end up with one transgressing against the other and you end up

00:04:41--> 00:04:42

with oppression.

00:04:44--> 00:04:47

Whether it be from one side or from both sides.

00:04:50--> 00:04:51

So when that happens,

00:04:53--> 00:04:54

the oppressor needs to be reminded.

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

He needs to be reminded

00:05:01--> 00:05:03

Fear Allah subhana wa tada

00:05:04--> 00:05:06

touch of fear a Day

00:05:07--> 00:05:09

in which it will be too late

00:05:11--> 00:05:12

for the party

00:05:13--> 00:05:20

to seek pardon and forgiveness from the one he or she will press the profits on the one where he was Sallam said

00:05:36--> 00:05:37


00:05:39--> 00:05:40

well, whenever

00:05:41--> 00:05:44

it's done wrong to his brother,

00:05:48--> 00:05:52

he may have spoken against him in his honor or anything else.

00:05:53--> 00:05:54

Let him

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

go to him or her

00:06:00--> 00:06:07

and seek their party and seek their forgiveness today. Before a D comes in which there will be known

00:06:08--> 00:06:10

00:06:14--> 00:06:16

00:06:17--> 00:06:19

in Canada who knows

00:06:21--> 00:06:40

if he had any good deals, you the oppressor, if you had any good deals, they'll be taken off he's I mean, who will be removed from it? You'll be taken from you. Give it to him as a gift. What in Canada or in lumea? cola who has no and if you don't have any conditions

00:06:42--> 00:06:44

to give to him. He doesn't say that he saw

00:06:47--> 00:06:59

his evil deeds, his sins will be taken to be thrown onto you. In another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained that such a person is the one who is truly bankrupt.

00:07:00--> 00:07:02

So my dear brothers and sisters,

00:07:04--> 00:07:07

if you have wronged anyone or abused anyone,

00:07:09--> 00:07:11

hurled insults or anyone,

00:07:14--> 00:07:16

whatever you may have done to your brother or your sister.

00:07:18--> 00:07:20

Go to them and seek their forgiveness.

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

Before a day when it's too late

00:07:24--> 00:07:26

for you to oppress.

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

Whoever feels that they have been wrong.

00:07:33--> 00:07:52

Whether it be physically, whether it be verbally, whether it be financially, someone took your wealth, and refused to give it back to you. Whatever the case, you the oppressed, although you have the right to seek revenge

00:07:54--> 00:07:56

and to seek justice.

00:07:57--> 00:08:04

Remember that there is something far better than seeking revenge, seeking justice.

00:08:05--> 00:08:10

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, One lady in an era also a woman

00:08:13--> 00:08:16

those who have been transgressed against

00:08:18--> 00:08:19

and they seek revenge,

00:08:26--> 00:08:30

if you want to seek revenge, seek justice do it.

00:08:32--> 00:08:33

Only in that which is equal

00:08:35--> 00:08:35


00:08:36--> 00:08:38

the movie doing day,

00:08:39--> 00:08:45

if someone did want you seek justice, repack but only in that which is equal.

00:08:47--> 00:08:49

Not going beyond that.

00:08:50--> 00:08:53

And then Allah subhanahu wa tada says, amen.

00:08:55--> 00:09:28

juror who had a Wah, but whoever pardon, whoever seeks reconciliation, decides to forgive, and his reward is waiting with awasum turned on with the hyena. In the hula you have in the law you can move on to me, Allah subhanho wa Taala does not love the oppressor. And so here as a matter of Sadie says in his Tafseer. Here we have three things, three levels of responding to oppression and injustice. The first is Riven

00:09:30--> 00:09:40

and only to seek retribution in that which is equal. The second is to party and your reward will be with Allah. And the third

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

is transgression. Because what happens when people seek revenge, they go beyond what was done to them, and they tend to fall into oppression themselves. That's why a lot concludes that I have a saying in the law you should avoid the mean or what does not have

00:10:00--> 00:10:21

Those who will press my dear brothers and sisters pardoning and forgiving others, is from the normal manners of the prophets in the messengers of Allah subhana wa Tada. Look at what happened with the use of Allah His Salaam, and the injustice that he was dealt with by his blood brothers. Look at what they did to him

00:10:22--> 00:10:25

physically, verbally,

00:10:27--> 00:10:28

emotionally, mentally.

00:10:30--> 00:10:37

And what did he do after years of being away from them? After he had the upper hand, after he had the authority,

00:10:38--> 00:10:42

he could have sought revenge. But what did he say?

00:10:49--> 00:10:54

He said, That's it, you're free to go. There is no blame upon you today.

00:10:55--> 00:11:08

Allah subhanahu wa taala will forgive you look at our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the injustices that were done to him and to his companions, years on end in Makkah,

00:11:10--> 00:11:18

and then in Medina, and then when he came as a conqueror in Macau, on the day in which he had the upper hand,

00:11:19--> 00:11:22

in the way in the on the day in which

00:11:23--> 00:11:25

he could have sought revenge,

00:11:27--> 00:11:29

he pardoned everyone.

00:11:31--> 00:11:31

He says,

00:11:33--> 00:11:36

On this day, you are free go.

00:11:39--> 00:11:45

And these are these are the good manners of all those who followed in the footsteps of the prophets in the midst of

00:11:47--> 00:11:48

evil Buhari.

00:11:51--> 00:11:52

Some of his companions came to him

00:11:54--> 00:11:57

and told him that there are people who are speaking ill of you.

00:12:01--> 00:12:03

If it was one of us,

00:12:05--> 00:12:06

we would ask what are they say?

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

We would get all upset, he would become enraged.

00:12:12--> 00:12:13

What did he say?

00:12:15--> 00:12:16

Okay, his words.

00:12:19--> 00:12:22

And he says in Nikita shaytani cannot waver.

00:12:24--> 00:12:27

On his week, leaving

00:12:28--> 00:12:31

just a thought was the cause of enmity between me and my brothers

00:12:36--> 00:12:36

in Islam,

00:12:39--> 00:12:40

and what he went through through his life,

00:12:42--> 00:12:45

being tortured by his opponents,

00:12:47--> 00:12:47


00:12:49--> 00:12:58

they would go to the rulers of that time, and complain about even taymiyah causing him to become imprisoned because of their false claims.

00:13:02--> 00:13:03

He eventually died in prison.

00:13:05--> 00:13:09

One day he came to him with some good news.

00:13:10--> 00:13:11

He told him

00:13:12--> 00:13:15

that one of your opponents one of these callers

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

he has passed away today.

00:13:21--> 00:13:24

thought this is good news that will cause joint tripping Tamia.

00:13:26--> 00:13:28

But what did even taymiyah say? got upset.

00:13:29--> 00:13:30

He said.

00:13:31--> 00:13:36

You're bringing meaning you're bringing to me Good News of the death of a Muslim

00:13:38--> 00:13:46

and then he went straight to his family, to his children. And he paid them his condolences. And he said to them

00:13:48--> 00:13:54

whatever you need, I am here for you. Today I am to you like your father.

00:13:56--> 00:14:00

My dear brothers and sisters. These are the normal manners

00:14:01--> 00:14:03

of those who have reached a level

00:14:05--> 00:14:12

a level of closeness and nearness to Allah subhanho wa Taala. The only zones reach

00:14:13--> 00:14:17

truly patient and put their knifes behind them.

00:14:18--> 00:14:20

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

What is it that prevents most of us

00:15:46--> 00:15:47

from wanting

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

to let go

00:15:51--> 00:15:59

of the abuses, the insults, the in Justices of others. What is it that prevents most of us

00:16:01--> 00:16:02

from wanting to forgive?

00:16:06--> 00:16:09

Among the things straight on

00:16:11--> 00:16:12

when we're told to forgive,

00:16:15--> 00:16:18

and we're reminded of the reward of that with a lot.

00:16:20--> 00:16:21

Tom comes to us

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

and says,

00:16:26--> 00:16:27

How could you do such a thing?

00:16:30--> 00:16:33

Look at what he did to you. How could you let it go?

00:16:34--> 00:16:35

How can you lower yourself?

00:16:38--> 00:16:41

How can you humiliate yourself and let such a thing go?

00:16:42--> 00:16:44

How can you allow him to win

00:16:46--> 00:16:46


00:16:51--> 00:16:53

So my dear brothers and sisters

00:16:55--> 00:16:56

in this regard,

00:17:01--> 00:17:03


00:17:08--> 00:17:13

de la de la Rosa, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says

00:17:14--> 00:17:16

that no servant of Allah

00:17:18--> 00:17:19

forgives him

00:17:20--> 00:17:25

except that Allah subhanho wa Taala raises his status

00:17:28--> 00:17:29

elevates him

00:17:31--> 00:17:36

and no one who lowers himself before a lot, except a lot elevated.

00:17:38--> 00:17:50

So as long as you do it for the sake of a loss of alone, that the reality is that you are the one who is becoming elevated and not your opponent.

00:17:52--> 00:17:58

And remember, that as long as both of you reconcile and let your differences go,

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

then you have defeated and become victorious overshadowing your enemy.

00:18:05--> 00:18:09

The end result of pardoning your brothers and sisters.

00:18:11--> 00:18:14

Remember this, my dear brothers and sisters, the end result is

00:18:16--> 00:18:20

the pardoning and the forgiving of Allah Subhana who were to

00:18:22--> 00:18:24

look at how many sins we have.

00:18:27--> 00:18:30

Do we want our sins to be forgiven?

00:18:31--> 00:18:33

If you want your sins to be forgiven,

00:18:34--> 00:18:44

and you believe that Allah is the author Forgiving, the one who poured in and he loves pardoning, if you believe this about Allah,

00:18:46--> 00:18:59

then deal with the servants of Allah in the same way so that Allah subhanho wa Taala can deal with you in that way. Allah subhana wa tada says, Well yeah, foo, foo.

00:19:00--> 00:19:08

Pour it in, forgive. Allah to ship Buddha in Yoruba hooligan. Do you want Allah to forgive you your sins?

00:19:10--> 00:19:17

how you deal with the creation of Allah is how you will be dealt with Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

What are these grudges worth?

00:19:24--> 00:19:33

These grudges that we hold in our hearts? What are they worth? These ill feelings that we have to our brothers and sisters, in our hearts.

00:19:35--> 00:19:39

What are the words such that we will pardon? And we will forgive?

00:19:41--> 00:19:45

What will we gain? A few days of self esteem in this dunya

00:19:47--> 00:19:54

some joy in this temporary dunya that will soon come to an end. Is that what we want?

00:19:56--> 00:19:57

Or do we want

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

what is what is with Allah Subhana

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


00:20:04--> 00:20:05

conclude with this heading,

00:20:08--> 00:20:10

one of the companions of

00:20:11--> 00:20:15

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he was among his companions One day,

00:20:16--> 00:20:17

he said

00:20:19--> 00:20:25

that a man is about to enter in your presence, who is from the people of gender.

00:20:28--> 00:20:31

companions waited until the men entered.

00:20:33--> 00:20:37

His beard was dripping with water from Brazil.

00:20:39--> 00:20:41

And he had his shoes in his hand.

00:20:43--> 00:20:46

So the next day the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam said the same thing.

00:20:48--> 00:20:57

And the same man entered. The third day they repeated, the same thing happened, the same men entered. So what are the companions? Are they lived in a house?

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

He said,

00:21:02--> 00:21:08

I have to see what is it that this man does that cause him to be from the inhabitants of China?

00:21:09--> 00:21:10

He followed him.

00:21:11--> 00:21:17

He followed him home, and he waited. He waited for him to get up that night and presort until

00:21:18--> 00:21:19

he didn't.

00:21:20--> 00:21:27

He waited to see is he going to fast? Is he going to pray? What is it that he does that causes him to become from the inhabitants of gentlemen?

00:21:29--> 00:21:30

When he saw nothing,

00:21:31--> 00:21:32

he gave up.

00:21:34--> 00:21:37

This man noticed him and

00:21:38--> 00:21:40

asked him, What is it that you do?

00:21:43--> 00:21:45

He said, whatever you have seen me That is all I do.

00:21:50--> 00:21:52

Gave up and he was leaving

00:21:53--> 00:21:54

that call

00:21:56--> 00:21:57

center remember

00:21:59--> 00:22:00

there is one thing

00:22:01--> 00:22:06

that I do never leave off before going to sleep every single night.

00:22:08--> 00:22:10

He said I go to sleep every single night

00:22:12--> 00:22:22

without having in my heart, any bitterness, any contentment, any resentment towards any believer on the face of this earth.
