Shaykh Kareem thank you for being with us again for the fifth episode of salaam aleikum. Hello Hello Malik quality eucom salaam WA, Allahu Akbar to Salaam Alaikum Dear viewers, and we're back with the important subject today. The virtues Why should we do it shake Why should I bother my people might ask you what are the virtues of this of doing this number one and number two,
why should I bother myself as an individual to do so? No. Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah shadow Allah, Allah illallah wa sallahu la sharika? Well, Shadow Anna Mohammedan Abu aura sola, my dear viewers and addressing my brothers and sisters in Islam all over the world. First of all, I think it's worthy to distinguish Malik between enjoining the good forbidding the evil, and calling people to Islam
is a key because we don't want to disregard the fact that the overwhelming majority of our viewers are living in the West, and they are living in a non Muslim society. So I want to remove the misconception here that right here when I talked about enjoining good and forbidding evil people drinking alcohol before people smoking people committing adultery, you're not going to go around now and start doing this with non Muslim cannot do this. Okay, good. This is important. First of all,
enjoining good, forbidding evil, or calling people to Allah. We call them mutual terms. It's two sides of the same coin right? mutual terms it means it's like Islam. When when a man is like Islam and a man if I say a Muslim or movement, if I say a Muslim, I could mean a movement. And if I say a movement, I could mean a Muslim, but if I say Muslim moment, I mean two different things. So if I mentioned them in the same context, I mean two different things exactly like Zakah and sadhaka. Again, another two terms are two words that are mutual mutual. Brothers and sisters in love one Moshtarak mutual, if I say is a car, I could mean sadaqa zeca is the 2.5%, which is the mandatory
portion of your wealth, which is the 2.45% on your savings, provided that you own it for a year and it reaches a minimum amount. And if I say sadaqa, I could mean also the mandatory but if I say zakka and sada, then I'm saying the Academy in something, so that means something else? Absolutely. We'll have the firewall Hola. Hola, Sharif, in Islam, this is what Tamia says, either gitana star aka either tharaka h Tana, if you mentioned them together, then their meanings are different. And if you mentioned them individually, then their meanings are the same are the same right? are combined. The same exact thing Malik with enjoining, the good forbidding the evil, if I say enjoining, good,
forbidding evil, you know, the top of the line of evil is shake.
So I could be calling people without hate. But if I say calling people without heat, or calling people to Allah, and enjoying the good and forbidding the evil, then I have basically divided their meanings calling people
A lot, then you're talking about non Muslims, Christian Jews, or atheist, people who are not Muslims, then I'm calling them to Islam enjoining good and forbidding evil. This is an act that is to be done around amongst Muslims, this is important that we needed to, to shed light on shake. So in other words, if we saw a non Muslim community, many things that we consider as sinful, we wouldn't address this topic. Instead, his biggest problem is that he's not Muslim. So you want to talk to him about how he did about being Muslim? Well, first of all, I I will, that's a very good question. I'm glad. I'm glad you're expounding on this, because it's really important. You see
Malik, we have an issue in our Sharia, which was debated amongst the scholars of law school, the fundamentals of the religion from the past, are the non Muslim being addressed with the branches of the religion, Salas aka fasting, which, you know, there are evidence for both groups. But now I'm really trying to make this as simple as possible, because I know I'm addressing because those who debated this issue, they really debated it and in light of non Muslims living in a Muslim country, okay. They are the minority, right, in a Muslim country. But now we're talking about another picture to reverse that diverse, Muslim minority community communities, Muslim minority people in being
minorities, right? Living in a majority of non Muslim right now. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam given the description of how to go about this hadith Sahih Hadith ignored us or the alarm on Houma. Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to
rob your loved one when he sent him to Yama, Yama in Makati Omen lakita Liukin our limited Oh la la ilaha illa. So here is my eyelid is a minority going to a country, the majority of that willers of the population are Christian and Jews. Now he said to him, what you should do, let be the first thing that you call them to is that he La ilaha illAllah look Rasul Allah wa sallam and this hadith he actually says, For in home, Elijah boo, mean if they answer you, if they accept that from you, if they say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, then talk to them about the Salah. He said, then talk to them about the Salah, then talk to them about the Zika then talk to them about the rest of
the religion. Right. So again, the issue, but again, I don't want some of the viewers to think I'm walking on the debate that happened amongst the jurists from the past specially allowed or sued, that are non Muslims who are living in a Muslim community, non Muslims who are minority Jews and Christians, of course, Jews and Christians living in a country like Egypt for example, they are the minority, are they obliged to follow the branches of the religion? Are they addressed by the branches of the religion or not, you know what both groups they have evidence callooh masala confy supper, Tallulah Nakula masala. This is an evidence for those who say that the non Muslims who are
living in a large Muslim community, right, they are the minority are addressed by the branches of the religion. Polina and a Bachelor of myth lukumi Oh, hi Ella and Nana ilaha illa Huwa hasta la he was stuck with you who look why he Lil mushrikeen woe to the Muslims who are those who are Muslim people who do not implement the hate people who are not more headin Allah Dena, la tunas dakka dakka is a branch of a religion, a branch. Now the fundamental, so strong proof for so I want to say that both groups once it comes whether the non Muslims minority who are living in a Muslim community or not are addressed by the branches of the religion or not, besides the hate, both groups do have
evidence but for sure we have a good ground to say that if you are a minority, Muslim minority living in a non Muslim, non Muslim majority communities, the first thing that you have to call people to Islam, Allah Allah Allah, then answering your question medic, if you see a Christian, Jew, non Muslim doing
all these things that are sins in our religion, don't even address it. You're supposed to talk to them about the heat based on Hadith, Martin natural law. This Hadith is a roadmap. It's the blueprint is the blueprint for us. So in this episode, we want to talk about the virtues of doing so and why as an individual, I should do it why should I bother myself with doing this? So can we talk a little bit about that
The virtues of enjoying the good and forbidding the evil? Well, if we begin by saying if we're talking about enjoying good and forbidding evil, and our together around one package, one package,
the best of the virtues of this, that this is the work of the messengers and the prophets. Who did this before you, who called people, to Allah to tawheed, who called people to abandon sins, and do righteousness and pi and do righteous deeds and good deeds Who did this? So, if you do it enough that you belong to that caliber of people, right? You're following the footsteps of the messengers and the prophets. Isn't that sufficient?
Also, you belong to the rank of the believers. When Allah Subhana Allah spoke about the believers in sola Toba, while Muna while Minato Bao Alia OVA ya una bella rufio and how Nana Mancha and the believer, men and women are friends of supporters are helpers of one another how they do it. They enjoy what is good, they forbid what is evil, that you see your brother, you see your sister doing something wrong? You go there using the etiquettes using the steps that you must take which we will explain and shed more light on in that series. In doing so. Look when Allah subhanaw taala spoke about the hypocrites which is the total contrary here to the believers. Well known afio kunaal Muna
ficado Babu whom in doubt, look yet Morrow Nabeel mukarram
and the hypocrites males and females, they are like one another, look what they do they enjoy an evil
why and how una an evil man
and they forbid good, the exact opposite of the opposite. So, basically, if you see evil, and if you do not do something about it, you could fall into this category into that category. So, this is something that is important. Add to this Malik at the end of the day, fear Sahih Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says menda illa houda if you call people to a path of godliness, a path of guidance can Allah who miss Lu jewelry mentor Dr. hula young Casa daddy came in oh god him Sharia, he will receive that he would have those who did it.
So if you find a Muslim brother or a Muslim sister, and you end up basically
guiding them to pray, advising them to pray, getting them to pray you every time that they pray, or you take a reward for this without them losing the reward. No, you receive similar reward. That's the Hadith. Muslim manda Ilaha the meaning of the Hadith is as follows. If you call people to guidance, and they do it, because of you, every time that they do this act, they receive a similar reward
like they receive without losing the reward. And that should be enough motivation for all all of us shouldn't. Why why all of us are gonna come end up to be in the skill of the one the profit is in one pen and all of us are in the right because of this constant because of this.
Because a lot of people you know, they they they come and say I would like to do something for the Messenger of Allah. If you really want to do something for the messenger. No, do what he commanded you to do. Okay, because every time that you do what the prophet sallallahu wasallam commanded you to do, he will benefit he will benefit in the middle of your train of thought we're gonna go to a quick break and come back and continue this important topic. If you want to hear more from him on this interesting and very important topic, well then stay tuned.

But sometimes, if you learn about the virtues, why you should do it, normally it motivates you right excellent point and that's what we're trying to do. We mentioned number one that you follow the footsteps of the prophets and the messengers This is very important, because that's what they did. You belong to the rank of the believers and you take yourself away from the rank of the hypocrites because hypocrites they enjoy an evil the exact opposite. Yeah, but but believers the enjoying good
forbid evil based on the verses and salata, Toba, and we mentioned about that, that, that he would that if you get somebody
to do what you're directing them to do, you will receive a similar reward. As a matter of fact, Allah subhanho wa Taala has mentioned that this reward is tremendous. Call it Allah La hiera figa theory Minh najwa home Illa men MRR MRR MRR and then Allah specifies a lemon Mr. Ravi sada kotin our maruf in our in vainness basically the meaning of the verse in Surah Nisa, there is no benefits in any mumbling that you do in any talk secret talk that you do. Okay? Accept that which you enjoy in sadhaka enjoying, tell somebody to give sadaqa charity or enjoying good or you try to fix relationships amongst people out. Look at this woman your file valey kaptivo amaravati la fere

And now if you do not need that reward, and the one who's rewarding is Allah Rest assured, it is huge, huge reward. Right? As a matter of fact, when you enjoin good and
forbid evil forgot to mention this, we're listing now the virtuous Malik you then fulfill the condition which qualifies you to the fact that you belong to the best oma remember at the very beginning we said well, don't hire our own nothing. Okay. Jacqueline is excellent and amadablam haka bothered Omar say Malik, do you remember if you want the beginning of the verse, you must fulfill what the conditions which are mentioned in this verse, you are the best oma, the best Omar the Muslims. You are from the best oma ever brought out for mankind. Why? You enjoy what is good? you forbid what is not it? It's all tied together. It's you're not the best owner because of your race
because you were born a Muslim? No, because you do these three conditions you fulfill these three conditions. This is a very important aspect as well. Allah subhanho wa Taala braised the people who do this lady Susa min lil kita di o matondkar. Emma, yet Luna et la la la home Yes, don't you mean una Villa, he will yo me. Why ya moon whoo Nabeel now when
you see Allah subhanaw taala in our Quran, just to show you the fierceness the fierceness of
of, of the Quran presenting the history of the Jews and the Christians. Allah mentioned that there is some of them, or the majority of them who did not enjoin good and forbid evil and what they earn as a result of this, Alon worked on the law in alladhina cafaro Minh Denis la isla Allah Allah Sani the Buddha is apne Maria Valley Kadima. So, what can we do? Can I attend una among can follow, basically the overall meaning of the verse, Allah Subhana diversas Allah subhanaw taala cursed the disbelievers from the children of Israel, Jews and Christians on the tongue of their messengers and prophets. They are rude and Asia why they would not enjoy and God forbid if that's the majority of
them. But at the same time, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned that out of them also, they were people who would braid their hair do that night, people who raise into race in doing goodness, and amongst the things that they would do, they would enjoy and good and forbid evil. Ladies, who's our main activity Tabby on metal, Karima Malik also rose also Lavalier salams. Just to show you that it is an act of worship, enjoying the good and forbidding evil brothers and sisters in Islam is an act of worship is a bad Hadith I'd be very, very above the law one will have it in a Muslim, the poor of the Muslims. They came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and they said Dr. rasulillah
messenger of Allah, they had to do foolery. billu
the wilfy of the Muslims they got all the rewards, right? You see the Wolfie at the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and that's easy. That's a very important benefit out of this. They used to worship a lot like the pool so the pool became jealous rasulillah they got old very old they play like we play they fast like we fast that goes to the wealthy and the rich and the old man Oh, I don't I shouldn't be doing this look, but at the same time they have money to give sada the food they don't. That's what the complaining about. You see that the poor of the Muslims are saying they are complaining about this fact that yet they are fasting why we're fasting, the fast Mondays and
Thursdays they do tie to that night. They pray all the Salawat but they have wills to give sadaqa This was unfair their welfare, then also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comforted giving them comfort. And he said, What about this? Anything that you do? Don't you get a sadhaka? If you smile, don't you get a sadhaka? If you say Subhana Allah don't you get a sadhaka? If you say Al Hamdulillah don't you get a sadhaka? If you say Allahu Akbar, don't you get a sadhaka if you say la ilaha illAllah don't you get a sadhaka and if look at this now, if you enjoy in good shape, this is what we're looking for word coding the whole hurry for this and if you enjoy and good and forbid evil, didn't you get a
sadhaka There we go. Don't you get a hustler? Ha, you're directing people to up to Allah subhanaw taala as a matter of fact, Malik the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also mentioned the Muslim and Hadith Sahih Hillel sonnet that fit Neto Rajamouli fi le he wanted he wanted he was very happy. Any shortcoming that you have once it comes to you dealing with your children, with your wife, with your neighbor with your coworker? Sometimes we end up doing saying something that fitness if you flunk that fitness. If you end up saying something or doing something that is unfair to any of those, of course you still have to settle with them. But guess what took a few ha it will be
expected by enjoying and good and forbidding evil. One of the things that will explain that sin for you that you enjoy and good and forbid evil. So all of these add to this one I also run Allahumma young Surah enjoining good and forbidding evil qualifies you to receive victory from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
In Allah Allah,
Allah will give victory to anyone he wills to give victory to Indeed Allah is all powerful, all mighty, who are those? Who are those who qualify to receive you Hill to be victorious in earth and Latina innokin whom fell out of the car masala

Masato attic I see that to you.
But in this episode he really clarified Eemian cream, how it is truly virtuous to enjoin the good and forbid evil. And the next episode, can we tie this act of virtuousness into the wisdom behind why this act of worship is obligatory? I think you want to hit the consequences. You want to see okay? Our religion, history or heap if you do this, you get this. I'll give you a lollipop. But if you don't, what are the consequence? Okay, so I think we want to talk about this next episode. Okay, we will inshallah thank you for your time you guys at home you guys don't want to miss you seen the first five episodes? The next episode? episode number six is talking about the consequences
individually and collectively on this on this Muslim woman, individual Muslims. But what happens if we don't enjoy the good and forbid the evil so until next time, you're leaving the care of Allah assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
