Welcome Welcome, my man Yogi Rasulullah who forgot

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

how we eat.

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

My dear brothers and sisters,

00:01:26--> 00:01:28

the times in which we live in today

00:01:30--> 00:01:35

or times of fitna on so many different levels.

00:01:38--> 00:01:39

But there is 1/5 now

00:01:41--> 00:01:48

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke of 1400 years ago

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

that we see prevalent

00:01:53--> 00:02:01

and that we see most of us struggling against. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

He said, ma torok to not October ID 15 attorney, although Riley regionally mean and Nisa

00:02:13--> 00:02:18

that there is no fitna that I have left behind me,

00:02:19--> 00:02:25

more dangerous, more harmful for men than the fitna of women.

00:02:26--> 00:02:38

And so this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala legislated what he legislated of the laws that would protect us from this fitna.

00:02:39--> 00:02:57

And so Allah subhana wa Tada. He legislated various kinds of laws that are outlined in the Quran, such as that which pertains to our relationship with various kinds of women that mahat him. Those were not allowed to marry.

00:02:59--> 00:03:26

And Allah subhanho wa Taala legislated that we not freely mix between the genders. And Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded the believing men and also the believing women to lower their days. Cold meanie and I mean, so hurry him, why follow Fuji home Delica is Kyla home, stay to the believing men

00:03:28--> 00:03:45

say to them to lower their games and protect their private parts that is more pure for example. And so this is because this is because shaitaan does not come to us directly.

00:03:46--> 00:04:12

He won't come to one of us and say commit Zina directly, but rather he drags us into sin gradually. And that's why I was in China who attalla told us making us to realize these footsteps of shaitan Yeah, are you hilarious? Man hula Tabby Ruta. shaitan

00:04:14--> 00:04:20

one may be our Hutu attache Bonnie, the in who mubin Sasha evil Mancha.

00:04:22--> 00:04:26

For in who Yeah, Maru bill Sasha evil Moncure.

00:04:27--> 00:04:48

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, commending us, all you who believe do not follow in the footsteps of shaitan. For whoever does so whoever follows in the footsteps of shaitan than indeed shaitan he only commands in decency in morality and evil, so shaitan

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

addressing his soldiers and his troops, he tells them to attack

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

to attack human beings.

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

Use through their eyes. For it is this same I, I was able to crap Adam in.

00:05:12--> 00:05:13

And so he Lord Adam,

00:05:15--> 00:05:26

into eating from the tree by making him to see this dream, and the fruit on it as being something delicious as being something

00:05:28--> 00:05:57

that will fulfill something that he had hoped for instilling within Adam false hopes. And so and so shaytaan addressing his troops, he tells them to attack the children of Adam, through their eyes, because it is through these eyes, that I will control them, and I will entice them to commit evil, it Nakai, Rafi mahoba, he says,

00:05:58--> 00:06:03

He says that the gaze and the sight, it generates a thought.

00:06:05--> 00:06:10

And then that thought, it generates an idea. And then the idea,

00:06:11--> 00:06:14

it generates a will a determination.

00:06:15--> 00:06:21

And then that will, will grow, and it will intensify.

00:06:22--> 00:06:39

And the person will become determined to commit that sin. And then the sin will inevitably be committed, unless there is something to prevent the person from committing it. And then he says, concerning this, it was said

00:06:40--> 00:06:51

that patients in lowering the gaze is easier than patients enduring the pain that comes after that.

00:06:53--> 00:07:03

And so my dear brothers and sisters, it starts with the eyes. And if we do not control our neffs and its desires from looking at her arm,

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

it will lead us to consequences

00:07:08--> 00:07:10

that we will lead or regret.

00:07:11--> 00:07:27

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam addressing galley robiola, who he said, Love to be alerted to the unknown, another do not follow up one glance with another for in local owner while he said

00:07:28--> 00:07:54

the first one, it was for you, meaning that it was not under your control, you are walking down the street, you saw something, but then the second glance, that is not for you, meaning that the first one is pardoned. But then after that, you have control and you can lower your games. Even Kathy,

00:07:56--> 00:07:57

he mentions a story.

00:07:59--> 00:08:01

In his famous book will be there when they hire.

00:08:03--> 00:08:04

He says

00:08:06--> 00:08:17

that an individual a person in his time, who he knew by the name of Ibn Abdul Rahim he narrates to him the story. He says that we went out

00:08:19--> 00:08:20

on a mission.

00:08:23--> 00:08:26

We went out on a mission to the Roman lands.

00:08:28--> 00:08:31

And there was a young lad who accompanied us.

00:08:33--> 00:08:36

And this young person,

00:08:37--> 00:08:38

he was

00:08:40--> 00:08:40

the most

00:08:42--> 00:08:55

worshipping of us. He was the most knowledgeable of us. He would recite the Quran more than any of us. He would fast during the day, and he would stand up and pray during the night.

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

He goes on to say

00:09:00--> 00:09:02

that suddenly we came across a fort.

00:09:04--> 00:09:05

And this young lad

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

he went,

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

he went close to the fort.

00:09:12--> 00:09:17

And so we thought that maybe he went there to relieve himself and that he would come back.

00:09:19--> 00:09:20

But he didn't come back.

00:09:22--> 00:09:25

And so we went to see where he went.

00:09:26--> 00:09:37

And we found we found him at the fort. Talking with a Christian woman from behind the fort. She was inside the fort.

00:09:38--> 00:09:39

And so

00:09:41--> 00:09:46

he fell in love with her and he asked her how he could be with her.

00:09:48--> 00:09:51

And so this woman she said, There is only one way

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

and that is if you renounce Islam and convert to Christianity. If you do so the door will open

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

I will be waiting for you.

00:10:04--> 00:10:13

And so this young person, he fell into that Trump, he converted to Christianity. He went to the door, he knocked on it, and it was open for him.

00:10:14--> 00:10:17

Even Abdur Rahim, the one narrating the story, he says,

00:10:18--> 00:10:19

He says

00:10:20--> 00:10:28

that we returned from our mission and the entire journey. Our only discussion was concerning this young person

00:10:29--> 00:10:39

and the grief you can never imagine, for we looked at this young teenager, this young youth, as being one of our own children,

00:10:40--> 00:10:54

and look at how he went astray. He was the most worshipping of us. He was the most devoted to Allah among us. He was the most knowledgeable of us, How on earth did he go a string.

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

And so he says

00:10:59--> 00:11:04

that we even addressed him. And we told him, fear online, come back.

00:11:05--> 00:11:07

But he wouldn't listen to us.

00:11:08--> 00:11:18

We asked him, What has your worship done for you? What has your core and done for you? What has your fasting done for you? What has your kiama laid done for you?

00:11:19--> 00:11:55

And so his response was regarding the Quran, he said, I have forgotten all of it. And all that I could remember of the Quran is one verse. Mallya, what do larina cafaro this one verse where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well road Donna. Yeah, what do larina cafaro Canyon mostly mean, though? homea who is their home? Their home? Yeah, kulu i a tomato. Well, you will he will enter loofa Sophia Allah moon, this one verse where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, perhaps

00:11:56--> 00:12:05

those who disbelieve they would wish that they were Muslims. Leave them Allah subhanahu wa taala says, leave them

00:12:06--> 00:12:10

in their enjoyment, leave them to eat to enjoy

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

and be deceived by their false hopes for they will come to know.

00:12:18--> 00:12:19

And so that was the end

00:12:20--> 00:12:23

of this of this young man

00:12:26--> 00:12:28

who was lowered

00:12:29--> 00:12:33

who was lured by nothing other than

00:12:34--> 00:12:35

a small glands.

00:12:36--> 00:12:44

A small games that many of us look at, as being insignificant, and we believe

00:12:45--> 00:13:02

00:13:59--> 00:14:00

as

00:14:02--> 00:14:03

the lock down

00:14:04--> 00:14:12

and the restrictions are lifted in the coming days and as we enter

00:14:13--> 00:14:16

in into the first heat wave of the summer.

00:14:17--> 00:14:18

We are faced

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

with this fitna.

00:14:23--> 00:14:27

With this fitna of women that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam warned us of

00:14:29--> 00:14:30

so there are many older

00:14:32--> 00:14:35

who easily fall into the traps of shaytaan

00:14:36--> 00:14:40

not being able to control their nests and their desires.

00:14:41--> 00:14:42

And so

00:14:44--> 00:14:45

I want to reflect

00:14:47--> 00:14:53

over one of the greatest stories that are once upon a who what data revealed in the Quran

00:14:55--> 00:14:57

the story of use of it his Salaam.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

From this story, we

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

Have not just a few lessons, but hundreds of lessons that we can learn.

00:15:07--> 00:15:08

And from these

00:15:09--> 00:15:26

are seven ways, seven ways that will help us to deal with the fitna of women. seven ways that Allah subhanho wa Taala he mentioned in the story of use of hiding his cell.

00:15:28--> 00:15:30

So the first of these ways,

00:15:32--> 00:15:37

is by seeking refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala. When faced with that temptation,

00:15:41--> 00:15:42

and so used to it,

00:15:45--> 00:15:54

when the wife of the king, she tried to seduce him, What are all our debts will He who has enough see he

00:15:56--> 00:16:03

wha whether to let He who has he has an FC he was locked in a web Akala T.

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

Column

00:16:07--> 00:16:10

when she tried to seduce him,

00:16:12--> 00:16:21

and she walked all the doors, and she said to him, now come to me. What was the response of use of it? He said,

00:16:22--> 00:16:53

what was the very first thing that he did? What was the very first thing that he said? He said, I seek refuge in Allah, my refuge is with none other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so seeking refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala is the number one means that will help us to face any kind of fitna out there, no matter how great it may seem, secondly,

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

to realize

00:16:58--> 00:17:02

the evil that this will lead to, to realize

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

the wrong

00:17:07--> 00:17:08

and the oppressive nature

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

of Xena

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

and so us Valley history.

00:17:18--> 00:17:23

After that, what did he say? In hula, you flee from the moon,

00:17:24--> 00:17:39

that the old pressive they will never succeed, signaling that if I was to commit this grave sin, then I am nothing but unjust. I am nothing but an oppressor.

00:17:40--> 00:17:51

And this reminds us of that heavy in which the Prophet sallallahu I knew he was sending them. A young person came to him and said Yasuda Allah give me permission to commit Zina.

00:17:52--> 00:17:55

What was the response of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:17:56--> 00:17:59

And what was the response of the companions around him?

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

They were ready to attack him. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he asked him,

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

would you?

00:18:10--> 00:18:12

Would you be pleased?

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

If the same thing was to be done with your sister, your mother, your daughter, your

00:18:23--> 00:18:26

with each one of these, he said, No.

00:18:27--> 00:18:31

I would never want anything like that to be done with them.

00:18:32--> 00:18:37

So likewise, these women that you want to commit Zina when

00:18:39--> 00:18:45

they are sisters, they are mothers, they are daughters. And so you committing this sin

00:18:47--> 00:18:51

is unjust. Just like it would be unjust

00:18:52--> 00:18:55

with those who you love, thirdly,

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

reviving the man in our hearts,

00:19:01--> 00:19:16

reviving the man in our hearts. And so Allah subhanahu wa tada says, what occurred to him met to be where him maybe Hi, Lola Bora Han or

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

cathartically nasukawa su

00:19:22--> 00:19:24

Allah subhanahu wa tada says

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

that she advanced towards him.

00:19:29--> 00:19:35

As for use of highly his Salaam, he would have also advanced if it was not

00:19:36--> 00:19:59

for the Buddha Han for the proof of Allah, him see and get before him. And Allah subhanho wa Taala averting from him in decency, immorality, the poor hand of Allah that Yusuf Ali Salaam saw the scholars say that it is the knowledge that he had in his heart that he man that he had in his heart and

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

Especially that which relates to Allah subhanho wa Taala. His names, his attributes.

00:20:07--> 00:20:24

This a man that he had in his heart, knowing who Allah subhana wa Taala is knowing that Allah is watching him, knowing that Allah subhana wa Adana will bring him to account if he was to commit this indecent act.

00:20:26--> 00:20:26

Fourthly,

00:20:32--> 00:20:34

loss of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:20:36--> 00:20:38

sincerity and honesty

00:20:39--> 00:21:03

that we have in our hearts, those who are sincere to Allah Subhana what data they do not allow any kind of fitna to penetrate their hearts. And so a loss of China hula Donna says, in whom in a bad you know, philosophy, he was from our chosen servants, and in another clearer in whom in a bad enough

00:21:05--> 00:21:15

he was from our sincere and honest servants. And so the question is, how honest Are you with Allah subhana wa tada?

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

Are you someone who is conscious of Allah subhanahu Adana

00:21:22--> 00:21:25

only at times when you are not tested?

00:21:26--> 00:21:35

Or are you conscious and honest with Allah subhana wa tada at all times, fifthly.

00:21:37--> 00:21:38

fleeing away,

00:21:40--> 00:21:42

fleeing away from fitten

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

when you are presented with them,

00:21:46--> 00:22:04

not wavering, not pausing, not hesitating, not thinking, but rather right away, running away. And this is what we learned from the story of use of hiding his salon was terrible called Bad walker.com you saw who

00:22:06--> 00:22:38

they raced towards the door, meaning that use of it his salon, right away, he got up, and he ran towards the door, trying to escape. And then she ran after him, tearing his shirt from behind. And so, when presented with these fitten, we should flee, we should even go to such places where we where we will be exposed to these fidelium sixthly,

00:22:39--> 00:22:57

standing firmly in resistance in refusal to submit to these temptations, and the fitting, and shaytaan and the desires and urges of our neffs.

00:22:59--> 00:23:02

one accord urawa to who infc for style some

00:23:03--> 00:23:07

What did she say? When she was in the gathering of the women?

00:23:08--> 00:23:09

She said to them,

00:23:10--> 00:23:21

that I did indeed try to seduce him. But what did he do? He stood firmly in resistance. And so

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

people when they are faced with different kinds of fitting,

00:23:28--> 00:23:37

there are those who stand firm in resistance. And there are those who surrender and give up.

00:23:38--> 00:23:54

Those who stand firm in resistance, they are the ones who will be saved. But those who surrender, they are the ones who will perish. Just like two individuals who are out at sea

00:23:57--> 00:23:59

and they are about to drown.

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

Both of them know how to swim. But one, he continues to struggle until he finds safety while another who tries but then he gives up and he surrenders and he grounds finally my dear brothers and sisters.

00:24:21--> 00:24:26

The seventh way to help us to be saved

00:24:28--> 00:24:29

from this fitna

00:24:30--> 00:24:35

is none other than to turn to Allah subhana wa tada into.

00:24:36--> 00:24:41

And so with all that use of allihies salaam went through,

00:24:42--> 00:24:44

first, that woman,

00:24:45--> 00:24:47

then when he escaped from her

00:24:49--> 00:24:54

and she went in the gathering of the women, and then they all tried to seduce him.

00:24:55--> 00:24:56

And then after that

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

he was threatened that

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

If he does not comply, he will be thrown in prison and he will be humiliated he will be disgrace.

00:25:09--> 00:25:10

What did he do?

00:25:11--> 00:25:13

Being who he was

00:25:14--> 00:25:17

a prophet of Allah, a messenger of Allah.

00:25:18--> 00:25:34

Having the man that he had the taqwa that he had, he could have said let me rely on myself. redirect me to rely on my he man, my he bared my righteousness. This will save me but no.

00:25:35--> 00:25:42

He turned to Allah subhanahu wa tada and he declared his own powerless nature.

00:25:43--> 00:25:49

And so what did he say you all know Rob bcgeu hub buoy layyah mean you're the rune and he lay.

00:25:51--> 00:25:52

He turned to a lion said yeah Rob.

00:25:54--> 00:26:05

Prison is more beloved to me then what they are calling me to not what she is calling me to work they all of these women are calling me to.

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

And then what did he say? We're ill das refer I'm Nick Ada hoon. Also Isla hin work convenient johannine the Ola if you do not save me from their plotting their cunning nature, then I will give it to them.

00:26:27--> 00:26:37

If it is not you, Oh Allah who will save me then that is I will end up falling into their trap. And I will be one of the ignorant

00:26:38--> 00:26:40

and so one should never rely
