Salam Alaikum dear viewers from around the world Welcome to your program, nation of goodness. This is the latest program series I should say. Put on by em cream. booze at C mon guidance TV Of course you've seen them on our channel, but a TV brought you building a better future. Most recently in this program nation of goodness is a natural extension of that series as well. Look, you guys we've been talking about enjoying the good and forbidding the evil. In the last episode we've been talking about some common misconceptions among Muslims who have abandoned doing this practice as well as different types of Muslims when with regard to this command from Allah that is enjoying the good and

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

forbidding the evil. So we will continue in this regard in sha Allah of course that is let us welcome our shake back to the program. See crema Pooja salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Brother Malik and the viewers, very quickly, just recap so the viewers get to know what we're talking about. We spoke about enjoining, good and forbidding evil is the condition

00:01:23--> 00:01:27

which is the to belong to that nation of goodness higher.

00:01:28--> 00:02:15

Now, we mentioned that enjoining good and forbidding evil is mandatory, at least with the heart. Once it comes to the hand and the tongue, it varies, it fluctuates between being recommended, sometimes it's haram actually to do it. Sometimes it's wise if it's mandatory as well. Now, we got into the types of Muslims, once it comes to enjoying the good and forbidding evil, we said there is a small portion a small segment of the Muslim world, basically around the Imams, the students of knowledge, the scholars, who are doing the task, and they are enjoying the good and forbidding evil about this is not sufficient. And then we spoke about the overwhelming majority of the Muslims, they

00:02:15--> 00:03:09

are not doing it and they have abandoned that command. They, they do not do it at all. And I mentioned the same. The main reason for this is the fact that their hearts became contaminated, poisoned poison, right that they do not recognize the good from the evil. And this does not mean that they should carry on with good hearts, but rather, they need to revive these hearts again. And the only way to revive and resurrect these hearts is by acquiring the knowledge, knowing what is good and knowing what is bad is the way to go about it. And then we got into some misconceptions that they may have regarding the issue. And we mentioned five, we mentioned three the last episode,

00:03:09--> 00:03:53

we'll recap them quickly and then we cover the last two inshallah, the first of which is they say it's a personal freedom, right? A Muslim cannot speak like that. If you speak like that, then you're really saying that the messengers and the prophets whom Allah subhanaw taala sent to mankind, they came to interfere with our person. That's a great point. This is absurd. If a Muslim speaks like this, come on, that doesn't go this way. And we proven that there are collective consequences, serious consequences, which are collectively actually inflicting upon communities who do not individuals in these communities where individuals are not enjoin, good and forbid evil, with quite

00:03:53--> 00:04:37

catastrophic consequences, clearly illustrated absolutely enough that your heart will not even begin recognizing the good and the bad in my opinion. And this statement was made about 11 years old, the real consequence, the real devastating consequence, that your heart does not distinguish the good from the bad anymore or your heart sees the good, the bad to be good, or to be normal or to be okay, except your heart acceptable. This is terrible. So personal freedom, we spoke about this. We spoke about this verse in Surah, chapter five, verse number 105105. And the fact that I will work with us to do for the long run was the first of the oma to pay attention to the misconception that anyone

00:04:37--> 00:04:43

may would may draw from this verse, this verse and he said, it was also a lot harder to

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

stress the fact that if you see wrongdoing, and if you do not stop it, collective punishment will be for you. And also we we stress the fact that we need to look into the understanding of our righteous predecessor of the same verse le mabuza tabon

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

Combined with our de familia man said regarding this verse, yeah you are Latina Manuel de la Baraka, Mandela. Day two. Oh you believe be concerned about yourself. It doesn't matter. As long as you're guided doesn't matter those who are misguided today for the man mentioned either Mr. Tom wanna hate him. But if I says, Yes, part of you being guided that you enjoy, and God forbid if, right? If you want to enjoin good and forbid evil, then your guy, you're not guiding because you're lacking the fulfillment of a certain command. Then we spoke about the third misconception, which is quite interesting, because it has some premise, right? That Listen, I'm not perfect. I don't want to be a

00:05:43--> 00:06:22

hypocrite. I don't want to be a hypocrite. Right? And you know what? It makes sense. Listen, overall, when you're free from the sin, which you're trying to stop people from doing, your message will reach more people. Right? It's more effective. But you know, on the other hand, Malik, I want to tell you something, the most perfect people who ever walked in this in the face of this earth are the prophets and messengers, correct, right? And we know that they are infallible in the sense of major sins and so forth as man. And yet they call people to do what is right and stay away from what is wrong, the overwhelming majority of the people did not have a beta. So you know, we cannot you

00:06:22--> 00:07:01

see, at the end of the day, yes, we have this Hadith, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us about a man whose intestines will be coming out of his ear and he will be going around like a donkey goes, drags that grinder and the people will ask this person Oh, so and so how come What happened to you used to command us to do good used to ban us from doing evil? And the person will say I used to command you to do it, but yet I ended up not doing it and I used to ban you from not doing the sin and I ended up doing this you the proof they use it. Yes. It's very convincing. Yes, it is convincing, right? But at the other hand, this is a very serious point. So at the other hand,

00:07:02--> 00:07:49

you abandoning the doing and not doing does not mean that you stop or refrain from doing it. lmm katavi Rahim Allah combined in his tafsir that Al has an anniversary set to mortara finlab de la enjoin good and forbid evil. Then motorists look at this now he said to him, in me a half am concerned that I tell them to do something that I do not do. Then it hasn't said to me or hammock Allah, may Allah have mercy in you why unify? And who does this? Right? In other words, impossible be perfect. Look at the statement that Yeah, what do shaitan and no lafora be heavy shaitan would love to convince all of us that you must be perfect before you enjoin good and forbid evil, so no

00:07:49--> 00:08:25

enjoyment of good and forbidding of evil in earth will ever take place because nobody's perfect. Listen, we want also to establish the fact that you will call to people will be more penetrating to the heart if you're not guilty of the sin. But again, you abandoning the task of enjoining good and forbid evil is not justified by the fact that you're not doing it. yourself. Okay. We have to establish that will Amendment No, let's I mean, let's look at it as a religious ruling. Allah mcaloon

00:08:26--> 00:09:12

female origin Elena Naui Leia started to fill me when I akuna Camila Han, Medina Thielen, it is not a condition on a person who enjoys good and forbid evil to be perfect himself. The fourth misconception medic that a lot of Muslims have, they say, I don't want to get myself into trouble. I don't want to get myself into fitna. Okay. Listen, you already getting yourself into trouble if you see evil. Yeah, and you don't do and you don't do it, you're into trouble already. Number one, you're not fulfilling the command. Number two, you're not removing yourself from the area of blame, right, being blameworthy for not for enjoyment, good and forbidding evil, and you're subjecting

00:09:12--> 00:09:49

yourself to the left if punishment, right? And if what happened, what happens if you collectively get punished and you die with those people who are committing the evil, you're going to be resurrected in a bad condition. But rather if you enjoy good and forbid evil, and there is a collective punishment and you happen to die with them, then you're going to be resurrected in a different place. Right? So you're already Add to this the fact that barbell curl the issue that I see very devastating, very serious consequence, once it comes to refraining from enjoining good and forbidding evil, the fact that your heart does not distinguish the evil from the good, because if

00:09:49--> 00:10:00

you see evil around you and you cannot do anything about it, this will cause your heart not to see it anymore. And this isn't a small thing. This is a huge in my opinion. This is the most dangerous

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

Peace, that your heart is corrupt because we know Listen, I'll call bumalik Rebellion while Judo cannot call. Viola Han says the heart is the king of the body. And the limbs are the soldiers of this king and he's taken this from honey phenomena and never she was he will have to hurry in this hadith. Allah NFL Jessa de motiva a DA sala hazza. Al Hassan just said, what I said at first, as I say, we'll just add our hair color. Indeed, in your body, there is a limb, if it is sound, that is, your body will be sound, if it is corrupt, not sound not healthy, sick heart, the rest of the body will be sick. Now the consequence, the real trouble that you you're talking about here, which you're

00:10:48--> 00:11:29

concerned about getting yourself into, will lead to the fact that you lose your heart. Do you think a lot of people are falling into this category? I think a lot of people walk next to the wall, don't get yourself into trouble. This is gonna cause you to lose your job. This is gonna cause you to lose, to lose this to do this to a lot of Muslims are falling into this, because of the fear. Listen, at the end of the day, we're not asking you to go on and hit everybody and speak bad about everybody. We mentioned how you go about it. But at the end of the day, if you're unable to change that evil with your tongue, and able to force the change, then you retreat to the heart then you

00:11:29--> 00:11:40

must isolate yourself from that environment because it will get to your heart and this is why it is devastating. Shall we talk about in the next segment inshallah we take a short break more about the heart

00:11:41--> 00:11:48

effects of this has on the heart will we want to talk about that then want to talk about the final misconception. And hopefully the next segment

00:11:49--> 00:11:53

we want to get into the third type of Muslim so

00:11:55--> 00:11:57

stay tuned for more. We'll

00:11:58--> 00:12:00

be right back after this short break.

00:12:21--> 00:12:28

violets have spilled over onto the escalated into violent clashes between police and protesters.

00:12:30--> 00:12:39

And we're also hearing of injuries on paternalist Charlie McGrath says the cuts will hate further suffering on ordinary people for decades. But the fence needs some

00:12:43--> 00:12:45

00:13:30--> 00:13:31

Moon

00:13:36--> 00:14:17

moon and Venus. Salam Alaikum Welcome back. You guys see your program, nation of goodness, say Kareem, we're talking about some very important topics. last segment I asked you to elaborate a little bit on the negative effect that not enjoying the good and forbidding the evil has on the hearts and please give the people that may be in this position. A little bit of hope also. Well listen, the problem. The problem is as follows. Definitely a man is highly Muslim. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Torah will fit in wailuku because they'll have a Odin odor. When you see something wrong is a fitna on your right is a fitna on you now you see it with your eyes or

00:14:17--> 00:14:37

maybe you hear about it with your ears. Alright, you watch it and now movie or internet or whatever it is in YouTube in a clip whatsoever. Now when you see this, the reaction of the heart is so important. Because what you see with your eyes, the eyes are just mediums

00:14:38--> 00:14:49

and it brings this to the Heart Sutra it will be presented to the heart one after another for a uma Boone and Cara shocking

00:14:50--> 00:14:52

when your heart denies it.

00:14:53--> 00:14:54

Stop for law

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

to be learned. You have a healthy heart healthy heart. Yeah, actually this

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

fitna the fact that you were able to reject it with your heart, it will strengthen your heart. Right? It will, you see it

00:15:10--> 00:15:57

came to a blue Tamia claim is a student of entertainment. And he said to he always brings to him misconceptions, misconceptions, misconceptions. You know what he said to him? Do not allow your heart to be like a sponge. rather make sure that your heart is like a piece of glass. What does he mean? You see that misconception which comes to him and to his heart, it goes to his heart, make sure that your heart is like a glass right it hits and what does what bounces bounces but doesn't absorb it doesn't absorb excellent like a sponge, suck it in. laxity absorbs it sucks. It sucks, it sucks. So the fitness presented your heart denies it rejects it haraam a stock for a lot like a

00:15:57--> 00:16:03

glass Yeah, the glass gets stronger, the more you use, bounces, gets stronger and stronger.

00:16:04--> 00:16:27

The collarbone and karahan socket, the meaning and it will become fortified, it will gain more immunity by the number of fitten that by the number of things that he does see the heart sees and then it rejects. But there is the other type of heart which gets sick, what you might call Boone or Sheree Buddha, and then when your heart succeed, it becomes like a sponge.

00:16:28--> 00:17:13

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said at the end of this Howdy, this heart les ahref Huma rufen wala Yun cumin Karan Illa de mal oshine them in our he will not this heart will become sick that it will not be able to see that evil evil because the heart socket, right, man I like that. Right? This is good. over and over and over and over again. That is weird. It is dangerous right on the heart. Okay, I just wanted to thank you. So yeah, and when the heart becomes ill when the heart becomes sick by the bodies. But we do have some hope Allah can revive these people, of course, your knowledge, your knowledge

00:17:14--> 00:17:15

and know how

00:17:16--> 00:17:57

to look at the context of this version, Solitaire had a lock and all those resurrect your heart, but by the knowledge, seek the knowledge. Okay. Now the fifth, right and last type of misconception Malik a lot of Muslims, they say, Listen, I've been calling people calling people and they're not happening. Listen, it's not your job. Right? They say they're not listening to me. So I should stop your job is to deliver remember the objectives behind you calling people yes, or enjoining good and forbidding evil, you're reminding them right for that reminder may benefit. Right. But again, you're fulfilling the command you're removing yourself from the area of blame War Z. Right. And and you're

00:17:57--> 00:18:14

trying to establish the hug against the people. It's not your job. Yeah. If it was the job of people to guide people not would have guided his son, right, correct. Of course, no, who would have guided his wife correct, of course, it would have guided Salam Salam aleikum wa salatu

00:18:15--> 00:18:22

salam, and Luke would have guided his wife, Mohammed Salam sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have guided his uncle.

00:18:24--> 00:19:10

Yet, he talked to his uncle about Islam throughout his life, and yet he still invited him at the time of death. So your job is to speak, right? Your job is to enjoin good and forbid evil. Because when you speak about it, you're protecting your heart from what? From this poison from this voice in Yeah. Oh, so here he is in the bed of death, his inviting his his people because listen, at the end of the day, they divide the guidance into two types hidayatullah data that you will share that you show the people that that you see in the Quran, and I'll go back to the show. Allah Subhana Allah Allah said to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam were in Nicoletta de la serata, Mr. P, you guide to a

00:19:10--> 00:19:16

straight path, that's a verse at the end of shoulder to shoulder and then uncertain costs, he said to him in

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

the manner that you do not guide

00:19:22--> 00:19:39

anybody who reads this he would say that is a contradiction, right? Right. Of course, you do not guide that you guide me to understand there are two types of guidance. Now I mean, that he that he directed the law that you show people the way but there is something called called head to toe fear

00:19:40--> 00:19:59

and this belongs to Allah subhanaw taala that Allah will make those people see the truth, okay? This is leave it to Allah. It's not your business. Your business is to remind them your business is you remove yourself from the area of blame worthy and you fulfill the command to convey your business is to establish the evidence that

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

Is your people that is your business, but whether the people will heed will listen to you or not, that is not your business, okay? And that is why you have to keep doing it and doing it and doing it. Because you know what? The time that you stop doing it may be the time when their hearts are ready to receive. Excellent point Allah Malik, do you have any personal experiences in this regard? A lot, a lot, a lot over and over again because this hearts upon lies in the hands of Allah. Yeah, yes, he and I read the story. Dubai Europe nanodiamond Nadi and his story is inside. Hello, Harry.

00:20:39--> 00:20:42

He actually told us the first time his heart open to Islam.

00:20:43--> 00:21:24

What happened he came to intercede with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to free the prisoners from the Battle of badness. You know, his father did a favor to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when the prophet and they didn't hide it, I went to five and they were chased out and thrown with rocks. When he came to Mecca, he did not enter his uncle is dead, he lost his protection and Mecca. So he waited until he sent for somebody to come and offer him something called a Jew or the production. Everyone in Mecca declined. They refuse to offer the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the protection but the father of a man whose name is Mohammed Nadi who died as a

00:21:24--> 00:21:57

disbeliever Subhan Allah He came and he said, I will protect you. Look at this now, his son's wife, he remember that his father did a favor for the profits of the law salon. So when the Muslims captured 70 of the disbelievers in the bucket of beggar. He went to Mecca to Medina to freedom. He entered Medina when at the time of Nazareth Salafi, remember, you know, when it is negative, everybody is in the message behind the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, and he heard the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam reciting surah to

00:21:59--> 00:22:01

Morrow, boom, boom,

00:22:02--> 00:22:02

boom,

00:22:03--> 00:22:06

boom amiya coluna taco Wallah,

00:22:08--> 00:22:12

Moon versus Malik. That if you read there is a

00:22:14--> 00:22:53

a PJ who at the last, the end of solo two, if you read that, that would be the hardest like strikes, hits, it hits because it questions questions, questions for people who deny or movie basically always in the Quran Allah subhanaw taala uses his lordship the fact that he created he provides being the ground to ask people to submit to Him right now I created I provided Why are you submitting to someone else? Why are you worshipping an idol? What is this idol create pseudovirus heard this verses you know what he said? The Colby

00:22:55--> 00:23:12

My heart was about to get to fly out of my chest because what his heart got open yeah supanova and he said in the old one Malakal Islam. This was the first time that I felt Islam in my heart. So this is a great point. You never know when their heart

00:23:14--> 00:23:58

is leading the Salah right? He's leading the Salah. He has no clue that Juba is here with you. He's reciting the Salah. Yeah. And he was South Natick and offer a mineral genius terminal Quran at one stage, or Allah subhanaw taala sent to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a delegation from Elgin to hear him reciting the Quran. He was reciting the Quran to his companions is Jin hooded water. Yeah, and it does show that we're doing Allah knows best how many Muslims will watch it and how many Muslims will watch it over and over again. But at one time this show will get to one person to the person and that's what we're hoping insha Allah fat these misconceptions must be removed.

00:23:59--> 00:24:07

Malik there is one more group you gotta go check the 30 oma okay which is the third group the yes they do enjoy and good but without good

00:24:09--> 00:24:47

but do you mean they do forbid evil but with evil they don't have the knowledge they don't know how to go about it and I think inshallah the next episode which is the final episode of our series, we will talk a little bit more about those and give our final thoughts be delighted Allah with this we have hopefully offered something to the oma to work with once it comes to this crucial or other important subject inshallah, thank you so much for your time your thoughts as always, you guys you heard it from Imam crema Jose, don't miss the next and final episode of your program, nation of goodness until then, I leave you in the care of a law Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
