00:02:39--> 00:02:41

Brothers and sisters in Islam

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

one of the

00:02:46--> 00:02:47


00:02:48--> 00:02:49

the ways

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:02:54--> 00:02:57

is called Suna to Tara for

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

the Sunnah

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


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

going head to head.

00:03:09--> 00:03:12

Allah Subhana Allah refused to it.

00:03:14--> 00:03:24

In surah, Al Baqarah filoli the Allah Walla Walla, LA, a nurse about above home Viva la festa that a lot.

00:03:25--> 00:03:32

If it were not for Allah subhanho wa Taala setting a group of people to face another group of people.

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

Corruption would spread

00:03:39--> 00:03:41

will fill height

00:03:42--> 00:03:46

for Latinas avant de la De La Hoya de ma salam,

00:03:47--> 00:03:51

WA salatu wa, Sergio, Kofi has melodica to

00:03:53--> 00:03:54

so that sooner

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

is to maintain

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


00:04:01--> 00:04:05

Earth relatively is clean from corruption.

00:04:08--> 00:04:18

So you got two groups, normally, because two rights cannot conflict and they don't they don't go, you know, if you're in the truth and the truth, we should be together.

00:04:19--> 00:04:23

So what is wrong and what is left one one is right.

00:04:25--> 00:04:30

Now, the group who's on the truth, or those who are on the truth,

00:04:32--> 00:04:35

if they simply conquer falsehood,

00:04:37--> 00:04:44

and they wipe it from the face of the earth helaas there is no need for this dunya to exist anymore, then the test is over.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

Then it's time to move from this world to the everlasting abode, which is genda. For the believers because they manage to overrun corruption, they manage to remove it, they manage to take it off.

00:05:03--> 00:05:09

by a falsehood of those who are on falsehood would concur with when

00:05:10--> 00:05:12

then they further action is here to

00:05:14--> 00:05:17

that means there is no voice for the truth. Tell us

00:05:18--> 00:05:26

what do they call us a La La Jolla. Salam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Let the Kumu sha Allah, Allah assuredness.

00:05:27--> 00:05:32

When the hour actually happens, the worst of mankind will be in the face of this earth.

00:05:33--> 00:05:39

Right before this, Allah will send the wind to suffocate the few believers left on the face of this earth.

00:05:41--> 00:05:47

What I'm trying to say is disagreeing is inevitable.

00:05:49--> 00:05:52

is ongoing is something that happens,

00:05:53--> 00:06:02

hey, life happens. You see, Allah subhanho wa Taala made you different to me intellectually, you're probably much better than me.

00:06:03--> 00:06:04

The law actually,

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

the way that I assess the situation is different to the way that you assess the situation that we differing.

00:06:14--> 00:06:18

As a human being, I'm talking in general, is not a sin.

00:06:19--> 00:06:21

Because that's a natural process.

00:06:23--> 00:06:30

But how do you conduct yourself when you differ? That is where the accountability is.

00:06:32--> 00:06:37

How do you carry yourself when you differ? How would you disagree?

00:06:39--> 00:06:46

We're gonna disagree. You probably some of you are disagreeing or four are saying right now. We're gonna disagree. But how do you

00:06:48--> 00:06:52

show response to my theory, disagreement, that's what we're talking about.

00:06:53--> 00:07:02

Brothers and sisters in Islam, there is no single doubt in the hearts of all of us as Muslims

00:07:03--> 00:07:10

that every single Muslim in any community Will's good for this oma

00:07:11--> 00:07:14

they have good intentions. They're good people.

00:07:15--> 00:07:18

Some of them are probably more sincere than anyone else.

00:07:21--> 00:07:24

There is you cannot period question that.

00:07:25--> 00:07:26

You can't.

00:07:27--> 00:07:28

And you know, what,

00:07:29--> 00:07:34

both wanna be on the truth, both wanna join the truth,

00:07:35--> 00:07:40

both want to be out there, following the truth or hoping.

00:07:42--> 00:07:44

But you see,

00:07:45--> 00:07:47

the path of truth

00:07:50--> 00:07:51

is identified

00:07:53--> 00:07:53

is knowing

00:07:56--> 00:07:58

is adjust and balanced one

00:08:02--> 00:08:03


00:08:05--> 00:08:09

main or the prominent characteristics of this path

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

which is me failing to to be with the with the truth is a middle one, a moderate one.

00:08:20--> 00:08:23

And this is what all the messengers and the prophets came down with

00:08:25--> 00:08:27

to help you and me

00:08:28--> 00:08:30

conduct our lives

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

in a moderate way.

00:08:36--> 00:08:39

And look at this Surah Al Baqarah

00:08:40--> 00:08:43

has 286 verses

00:08:45--> 00:08:47

286 verses

00:08:48--> 00:08:50

what is the middle verse? What is the number

00:08:52--> 00:08:53


00:08:54--> 00:08:55

What is that versus

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

what are their leakage our

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

own methane was hotter

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

and indeed we have made you or Muslims adjust balanced.

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


00:09:15--> 00:09:18

You know what, what what it means to be just unbalanced

00:09:20--> 00:09:24

that you fall in the middle of two extremes.

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

A fraud, negligence,

00:09:31--> 00:09:38

the fleet negligence, fraud excessiveness extremism

00:09:39--> 00:09:42

that you come in between. You're in the middle

00:09:44--> 00:09:46

to your right. negligence.

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

Some people who say Take it easy, man, you're too tough.

00:09:54--> 00:09:54

Don't do this

00:09:57--> 00:09:58

and then the other side

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

overdoing it, extremism,

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

excessiveness oluwo.

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

And brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:10:11--> 00:10:23

For you to understand this when you both lishan yourself right in the middle like Allah subhana wa Taala said, to find yourself protected you have two edges protecting you.

00:10:25--> 00:10:27

But if you go to the edge dangerous

00:10:29--> 00:10:33

dangerous days, very close but when you're in the middle

00:10:35--> 00:10:36

you're preserved

00:10:37--> 00:10:38

you protected

00:10:39--> 00:10:55

also watts to the things which Allah created when they run and they reach the limits of course the best look at the sun when the when does the sun gave its best light when which best heat I guess that's when when it is what

00:10:57--> 00:10:59

when the moon looks the best when

00:11:03--> 00:11:14

the human look at aging, I can't even afford hamdulillah flying anymore I used to handle Allah age

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

when your youthful

00:11:19--> 00:11:21

brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:11:23--> 00:11:28

This is what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam came

00:11:30--> 00:11:30

to deliver

00:11:32--> 00:11:34

a moderate path,

00:11:36--> 00:11:37

a middle way

00:11:38--> 00:11:40

adjust balanced

00:11:42--> 00:11:47

attitude. Look at this now be retaining your beliefs

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

too pertaining to your data

00:11:54--> 00:11:56

pertaining to your character

00:11:58--> 00:12:02

and pertaining to your dealings with one another.

00:12:07--> 00:12:27

And I'm not gonna compare the Muslims to the non Muslims. That should have been really about that, that just to show you how Islam is a moderate, just unbalanced religion, if you compare it to the previous religions or any other religion out there in the face of this earth.

00:12:29--> 00:12:31

But I'm going to show you

00:12:32--> 00:12:42

how people who say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah gun away from the middle way

00:12:45--> 00:12:47

whether to the side of negligence

00:12:49--> 00:12:51

or whether to the side of extremism.

00:12:53--> 00:12:54

And this is what created

00:12:55--> 00:12:56


00:12:58--> 00:13:04

And this is what even though we all say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, but we're different.

00:13:05--> 00:13:11

Because again, we have not adopted that was Sophia.

00:13:12--> 00:13:18

That is why I call it the last wave in the oma right right now.

00:13:19--> 00:13:26

Most of the Muslims whether negligence, whether extremism, very few

00:13:27--> 00:13:30

are on the middle way Why? Because it takes knowledge.

00:13:32--> 00:13:39

It takes learning and it takes wisdom to you know, sometimes it comes with age when you're young.

00:13:40--> 00:13:41

You know

00:13:43--> 00:13:44

I'll give you an example.

00:13:45--> 00:13:48

In the area of beliefs

00:13:49--> 00:13:55

let's take for example, the first subject ever Muslims disagreed upon

00:13:57--> 00:14:04

Can I ask you what was the first subject Muslims disagreed upon? You know what it is? What is a man

00:14:06--> 00:14:07

the definition of a man

00:14:08--> 00:14:19

i'm not talking the articles of Eman I know everybody knows the six articles believe in Allah angels messengers books they've judgmental harder we know that nobody disagree on this one.

00:14:20--> 00:14:25

But the nature the reality of email what makes a man

00:14:27--> 00:14:34

First of all, you need to know this that are also la la hora us lm him himself did not know what a man means.

00:14:36--> 00:14:41

And for him to know what a man means he received revelation by evidence.

00:14:42--> 00:14:50

waka Delica hyena la Kuru Hanneman Marina McCune teta de mal Emanuel Al Kitab, Maliki Tawana Lima

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

and thus we sent you debris. He did not know what Eman means the nature I'm talking about the nature the reality of it.

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

Has it been for a while for the revelation

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

for you?

00:15:06--> 00:15:07

What is the man?

00:15:08--> 00:15:16

The oma disagreed you ended up with one extreme to the left. excessiveness, Hulu

00:15:18--> 00:15:19

being fanatic

00:15:21--> 00:15:22

and negligence

00:15:23--> 00:15:24

and the truth is in the middle

00:15:30--> 00:15:37

they tell you what is a man? A man is one solid reality one entity.

00:15:39--> 00:15:43

entity, if you must have all of it is gone.

00:15:45--> 00:15:48

Who the hell are kulu? Who

00:15:49--> 00:15:52

when you commit a sin, your Eman is gone.

00:15:56--> 00:16:07

And those are the people who label Muslims who commit major sins to be disbelievers, and consequently they kill them.

00:16:08--> 00:16:14

If you're wondering where that killing comes from, why the NACA fara

00:16:15--> 00:16:22

because for you to kill a Muslim, you must take him out of the fold of Islam now how can I take him out of the fold of Islam?

00:16:24--> 00:16:30

How he man is one solid entity, he can mess around it.

00:16:32--> 00:16:33

for you This is an extreme

00:16:35--> 00:16:38

and by the way, they use evidence.

00:16:39--> 00:16:44

But if you sit with them, we tell them simply is taken out of context.

00:16:45--> 00:16:50

Look at the other extreme negligence imaginable Madhya

00:16:51--> 00:16:55

they tell you what the man is. Listen, a man is just the yoke of the heart.

00:16:57--> 00:17:08

That you believe in your heart. The six articles of faith who Jazakallah hiren Jani Sasha de la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah Ashlynn Jones aka the Muslim Muslim

00:17:09--> 00:17:23

nation aka Takashi Akemi. I'm sorry, and please say eyeshadow Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah so the ruling of Muslims would apply to you that if you can marry a Muslim woman and if you invite me to your house I can come and eat you.

00:17:24--> 00:17:29

tuber Salah was aka when hag julija Lenin has nothing to do with the man

00:17:30--> 00:17:31

or woman

00:17:35--> 00:17:39

I was telling the brother right before the show he should have been about the subject today.

00:17:40--> 00:17:42

lol A Good Friday today right? But

00:17:43--> 00:17:52

we're here on what to do. We're supposed to give Dawa to non Muslims. And here we are talking about the subject on that Friday. This is what Christians did to their religion.

00:17:54--> 00:18:11

Prophet esala your Salatu was Salam came I came confirming the laws you have to work. Paul, a self claimed disciple never met Isa at all Allah salat wa salam came up with that formula listen all what you have to do believe in the grace of Allah

00:18:12--> 00:18:15

who believe that Allah sent His Son to die for him the palace

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

you don't have to do nothing

00:18:20--> 00:18:24

we have also a second Islam in which I will have no no no deeds my fish for you.

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

What is the truth?

00:18:28--> 00:18:29

The truth is in the middle

00:18:31--> 00:18:44

Eman a Chanel Gemma the middle way a man face whole statement of the heart the tongue action of the lungs and you're not perfect at increases and decreases.

00:18:46--> 00:18:47

decreases in decrease

00:18:53--> 00:18:59

is just to show you I'm sure we were talking about Muslims here. Again brothers and so the truth is in the middle.

00:19:02--> 00:19:08

Let's take a less mouse effect. The names and the attributes of Allah knowing who Allah is two extremes.

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

One extreme Jeremy Alma Tesla, they said What lesson Allah has no names, no attributes.

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

Were like Allah has no names, no attributes, taka semiya Alba siru luperon, lemon

00:19:28--> 00:19:29


00:19:30--> 00:19:32

more aquilla they are called

00:19:34--> 00:19:34


00:19:35--> 00:19:38

but they can be likened to Buddha Dhamma.

00:19:39--> 00:19:49

And imagine I come and I tell you brother, my Alhamdulillah Allah has blessed me yesterday with a child. So good.

00:19:50--> 00:19:58

And then he asked me Can you describe that child for me? Oh, he has no attributes. No, no, I can tell you there has nothing. So who you

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


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

This is extreme. Look at the other extreme, Elmo just simmer. They talk the names and the attributes of Allah literally, Allah has a face. Now he thinks the face of Allah is a human face.

00:20:14--> 00:20:15

Which is

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

extremes. The board is the truth.

00:20:21--> 00:20:22

In the middle.

00:20:23--> 00:20:30

Yes, Allah has names as attributes. But we understand that life is second if Li no one is like a lot.

00:20:33--> 00:20:39

Don't try to visualize, let go. Moravia. Lima Mahadeva, Maria,

00:20:40--> 00:20:43

Maria holiday pass, just don't stop.

00:20:46--> 00:20:47


00:20:48--> 00:20:50

being just balanced

00:20:54--> 00:21:00

elka local cutter. Likewise, he got to extremes.

00:21:01--> 00:21:10

Little casaya they tell you what, I'm wrong. Imagine there are people who believe that things Allah do not know about what happens until they happen.

00:21:11--> 00:21:22

Imagine there are people who believe that and this is an early by the way movement just read the beginning of Hadith, honourable katagiri just read that Hadith. Can I have a napkin please?

00:21:25--> 00:21:26

Read honey Jabri

00:21:28--> 00:21:30

in Umrah Ono, good luck.

00:21:32--> 00:21:33

Allah doesn't know nothing.

00:21:34--> 00:21:35

Imagine this

00:21:36--> 00:21:37


00:21:39--> 00:21:42

So that's one extreme top look at the other extreme.

00:21:43--> 00:21:58

Everything that happens because of the will of Allah you have zero will basically or I'll give you the example. I'm not going to slap nobody here. That's not the right time to do this. But look at this, at the time of former Alon Omar Kuta thief and he's about to cut his hand

00:21:59--> 00:22:12

sakala he said oh Commander of the Faithful, la casa de la. I stole because of federal law. That's upon me. Almost said I'll cut your hand to Olson federal law.

00:22:16--> 00:22:30

Must have not had the police who started the whole thing a police What did the police say to Allah? Carla bbma attorney said the police that Oh Allah you misguided me law. Listen, look liquorish The truth is the truth. The truth is in the middle.

00:22:31--> 00:22:32

You have a will.

00:22:34--> 00:22:35

Allah knows your will

00:22:36--> 00:22:38

and your will under the will of Allah.

00:22:39--> 00:22:45

And leave it at that. Now you don't know what Allah will what Allah knows. So just take the right path.

00:22:48--> 00:22:48

The truth

00:22:49--> 00:22:50

is still have eroded

00:22:52--> 00:22:53

but Allah knows about your error.

00:22:57--> 00:22:59

For even a better look at the labor

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


00:23:06--> 00:23:15

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rebuked a companion whom he is another in another Hadith expressed his love for him.

00:23:16--> 00:23:22

Imagine that also Salim came one day to watch calamari Mr. Omar voila he in Nila,

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

by Allah I love your wife.

00:23:27--> 00:23:30

And when Benny Salama complained about him prolonging the Salah

00:23:32--> 00:23:37

being excessive there, he said a fat turn and why

00:23:38--> 00:23:41

are you booting people to fit now? Why don't

00:23:42--> 00:23:50

if you play by yourself, they slide as much as you want but if you leave the people in Salah Come on behind you are the sick the elder.

00:23:52--> 00:23:53

Why balanced?

00:23:56--> 00:24:10

Look at this now. Meanwhile, what he was selling sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the masjid and a companion of his entered brains. But what kind of Salah like a lot of Muslims Luna knock

00:24:16--> 00:24:17


00:24:18--> 00:24:23

Earl Jefferson live in a column to slowly go back and pray. have not read the

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


00:24:31--> 00:24:34

one of his wife's I don't recall Sophia, maybe I could be wrong.

00:24:36--> 00:24:42

She ended up by the way too for her to break the hedges she ended up having a robe in the machine so that when she gets tired,

00:24:43--> 00:24:46

she would hold on that rope so she can carry on praying.

00:24:48--> 00:24:53

Head untied this rope. Don't do this. When you're suddenly shot.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

You pray as long as you can pray after that. Take a break. Come on. Middle

00:25:01--> 00:25:05

Muscle balanced, moderate way.

00:25:07--> 00:25:09

Oh, we fit here the Hadith are

00:25:11--> 00:25:19

the three individuals who came to the house of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam you know the Hadith alisia NSN the Muslim asking the mother of his worship

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

What did they say? One of them said what? I will pray to her good every single night

00:25:27--> 00:25:27


00:25:29--> 00:25:34

I will fast every single day three the third one said no woman

00:25:35--> 00:25:39

woman keeping me busy from the worship of Allah no women and children.

00:25:42--> 00:25:45

There's nothing wrong with you fasting every day praying

00:25:48--> 00:25:49

that's been fanatic.

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

He got on the ball bit

00:25:53--> 00:25:55

and he addressed the oma.

00:25:57--> 00:26:01

And by the way, he never named these individuals

00:26:03--> 00:26:06

even named people in Nepal but don't.

00:26:07--> 00:26:08

You're abusing the bobet

00:26:10--> 00:26:15

you don't think that the Sahaba do not know the names of these three individuals. They know them.

00:26:16--> 00:26:20

Go and check the books of Sona and find these names. Nobody ever would name them.

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

He stood and I heard what some people are saying

00:26:31--> 00:26:33

bold button call names.

00:26:37--> 00:26:47

This is mimco Nabi sallallahu alaihe salam Allah I believe in myself to be up here. Allahu Akbar Allah me

00:26:59--> 00:27:01

to be here in his place last

00:27:03--> 00:27:03


00:27:05--> 00:27:05


00:27:11--> 00:27:14

He would face the table and he sees from behind.

00:27:16--> 00:27:21

And one of the characteristics of the prophets Allah Salaam that he would see from behind. He would see people lifting them

00:27:23--> 00:27:25

he knows them he knows their names.

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

He looks back

00:27:29--> 00:27:32

why some people are doing this

00:27:35--> 00:27:37

now at the end of the day listen Are you

00:27:38--> 00:27:42

are you gonna punish people is that what you want to do? You want to correct people?

00:27:44--> 00:27:46

People do not get corrected this way.

00:27:47--> 00:27:55

That nobody nobody accepts it. In nefs the neffs inside the body has also taught has power has power.

00:27:56--> 00:28:06

Yeah, he knifes deceived for our own he stood in front of people and they said another Boca. Chica laughs maknoon head galinhas anara Bukola nefs

00:28:07--> 00:28:10

for for you to get that nefs to do the right thing.

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

Take it easy.

00:28:17--> 00:28:22

Look, he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I fast and I break fast.

00:28:23--> 00:28:31

I breathe 100 every night and I sleep every night. And I marry a woman and this is my way the middle way.

00:28:32--> 00:28:34

The scholars they say about this hadith This is my

00:28:36--> 00:28:39

this is my religion. The middle path

00:28:41--> 00:28:42

the middle path

00:28:44--> 00:28:47

there are Muslims who do not pray that's also negligence. That's an extreme

00:28:49--> 00:29:00

rather nasty ushiku Allahu la v Mia Sharif and Aquarius who will be up here My heart is so wide that's an Egyptian expression. I don't know if it works with you or not the only thing that I don't pray five times a day

00:29:01--> 00:29:04

yes lm yahi Galois but

00:29:05--> 00:29:09

other people they say Allah is in my heart You will Allah is in my heart and I was Alicia's

00:29:11--> 00:29:14

and I always tell that story. I was imagining in

00:29:16--> 00:29:19

solid at Washington DC at one time

00:29:20--> 00:29:23

and you know there is a variation between the number of accurate

00:29:25--> 00:29:29

for one of the brothers of course I did seven and five he came to me after the salah

00:29:30--> 00:29:32

and I thought he's gonna say it over to you.

00:29:34--> 00:29:36

And he said min Nick lilla

00:29:37--> 00:29:40

I complained you to Allah

00:29:41--> 00:29:46

or about you against you to Allah you messed up the only Salah I observed every

00:29:48--> 00:29:57

Muslim listen Muslim, Muslim Omar is a Andouille the field negligence, but the truth is wave

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

in the middle

00:30:02--> 00:30:03

And on and on your

00:30:06--> 00:30:08

brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:30:09--> 00:30:10

Let's come to

00:30:12--> 00:30:15

an important pillar of Islam

00:30:17--> 00:30:20

which is, the scholars

00:30:22--> 00:30:24

listed it to be the sixth pillar.

00:30:26--> 00:30:29

Allah sibility had he had estado

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

St. hada.

00:30:32--> 00:30:47

There is no text that says that the Pillars of Islam are what? Five, but because of the importance of that pillar, they placed it of importance number six, what pillar enjoy in in good, forbidding evil.

00:30:50--> 00:30:52

Also we have two extremes in the

00:30:56--> 00:31:00

one to the right, one to the left, and the truth is in the middle.

00:31:06--> 00:31:08

The negligence there are many many

00:31:09--> 00:31:15

it's not my business interest in Bill heybrook. That's again an Egyptian expressive walk next to the walls.

00:31:17--> 00:31:20

In Nila smaller erotica, I don't see I don't hear I don't speak.

00:31:22--> 00:31:25

And and by the way, some of them they use evidence

00:31:27--> 00:31:32

which they take out of context literally and to justify their position to be passive.

00:31:33--> 00:31:40

That there is something wrong happening in front of you. And you do not do something about it. This is wrong.

00:31:42--> 00:31:43

This is bad.

00:31:46--> 00:31:49

If you see something wrong, you must change it may

00:31:51--> 00:31:53

mean c'mon Karen, fellow here.

00:31:55--> 00:31:57

He shouldn't see passive you should say no.

00:31:59--> 00:32:01

That's extreme here.

00:32:03--> 00:32:05

But look at the other extreme.

00:32:07--> 00:32:08

How do you change it?

00:32:09--> 00:32:10


00:32:12--> 00:32:13

Well that's the issue.

00:32:16--> 00:32:20

For us, you know, this is the place where we tie all the horses.

00:32:25--> 00:32:26

Remember that line?

00:32:27--> 00:32:29

enjoining good with good,

00:32:31--> 00:32:34

forbidding evil without evil.

00:32:37--> 00:32:38

That's what you need to do.

00:32:39--> 00:32:41

You enjoy Tom Obama,

00:32:44--> 00:32:47

a new forbidding evil without evil.

00:32:49--> 00:32:54

Basically, before you try to stop evil,

00:32:55--> 00:33:06

you're supposed to assess the positive and the negative consequence is a fewer act. Then should I or should I not?

00:33:07--> 00:33:10

Now listen, it's easy to

00:33:12--> 00:33:14

to yell at everybody. It's easy.

00:33:16--> 00:33:18

But there is a benefit.

00:33:20--> 00:33:21

There is a hall.

00:33:23--> 00:33:26

Brothers and sisters in Islam. I'll share with you what am said.

00:33:28--> 00:33:38

And listen to these words carefully. From a book called lm l moussaka in hon I mean, beautiful book, beautiful literature

00:33:42--> 00:33:50

in the nebia salovaara USL lemma Sherif Ali omet II jabber in kerrville mooncup

00:33:51--> 00:33:55

Lia sola. minalima roofie Mario hibou la hora Zulu.

00:33:57--> 00:33:59

Again, I'll say it in Arabic And l translate

00:34:01--> 00:34:16

in Allaha in the nebia, Salah lohana usli mushara Ali omega t. ej in Carol mooncup Leah sola. minalima roofie May you hate.

00:34:19--> 00:34:30

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made it mandatory upon his oma to forbid evil, mandatory to forbid evil

00:34:31--> 00:34:39

in order for the morrow for the goodness to exist, which will please Allah and His messenger.

00:34:40--> 00:34:41

But look at this now

00:34:43--> 00:34:59

for any cells and an inker will moon carry, Moon qarun Aqua Roman, for who are amarone mooncup wa Salatu lillahi wa salim but if you forbid evil and that evil will lead to a greater

00:35:01--> 00:35:08

Then this is evil, what you're doing is evil. And you're disobeying Allah is missing even for your for being here and joining good and forbidding evil.

00:35:12--> 00:35:15

He broke it down in four scenarios, look at this, look at this.

00:35:17--> 00:35:17

four scenarios,

00:35:19--> 00:35:25

you have an evil in front of you. And by the way, this does not have to apply to our community that has, it could be with you and your children.

00:35:26--> 00:35:28

Anybody who's in charge, even if one person

00:35:30--> 00:35:43

is evil with your eyes, now what will happen? Are you going to exchange replace that evil with God? Then it's mandatory to stop that evil and harm, harm if you don't do it.

00:35:45--> 00:35:48

If you're gonna replace that evil with good, if you're positive

00:35:51--> 00:36:05

that if you if you use your force or your hand or if you speak and this evil will be replaced with goodness, then you do it. You're sure So, you're sure

00:36:06--> 00:36:07

that scenario number one

00:36:08--> 00:36:14

to that evil will be replaced with a lesser evil

00:36:16--> 00:36:17


00:36:18--> 00:36:21

You know, when the duck the hole in the ship

00:36:23--> 00:36:23

what happened

00:36:24--> 00:36:25

was of two evils

00:36:27--> 00:36:29

the ship is being taken away from them a second.

00:36:31--> 00:36:32

And instead of digging a hole in the ship,

00:36:34--> 00:36:47

but the least of the lesser evil, then it's highly recommended look if that evil will will become lesser, it's then recommended not mandatory recommended.

00:36:52--> 00:36:52

There is two

00:36:55--> 00:37:01

scenario three here What if the evil will be replaced with an evil equal to it?

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


00:37:05--> 00:37:06

consult a scholar

00:37:09--> 00:37:13

established that you need to meet somebody to

00:37:14--> 00:37:15

that situation.

00:37:16--> 00:37:17

But don't

00:37:20--> 00:37:23

but look at the fourth scenario now the scary one.

00:37:24--> 00:37:28

When you place that evil with a greater evil it is

00:37:29--> 00:37:29


00:37:32--> 00:37:33

haram to do it.

00:37:35--> 00:37:39

I mean the word harm I mean, I mean the word harm

00:37:40--> 00:37:43

because you're gonna cause a greater harm.

00:37:48--> 00:38:08

Look at the statement of no time is not over yet. Wala katakana Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ar Rahman karate v Mecca. What is not the otter era. And the prophet SAW Selim used to see a lot of evil in Mecca, he would not even his look off when the people are worshipping the idols praying to the idols.

00:38:10--> 00:38:24

Plus, they're not only this look of no claim to fame is telling you even when he conquers Mecca, and Mecca became a Muslim place. And he was able to change it.

00:38:26--> 00:38:39

At one stage, he wanted to take down the foundation of the Kaaba and reconstructed the way Ibrahim and his marriage raise it. You know, if you look at the cover, there is a hazardous material there is a missing part right?

00:38:40--> 00:39:00

There is a missing portable solar monitor to take the car back down and rebuild it on the original foundation. And he said No, I can't. You know, what's the reason Lola Haida to comi kibel Islam? Has it been for kurush being new to Islam. That's too much fitna for them.

00:39:03--> 00:39:07

It's been exposed to a greater evil Oh, he's taking the Kava and

00:39:09--> 00:39:10

the chaos.

00:39:13--> 00:39:15

Brother brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:39:18--> 00:39:19

It is time

00:39:21--> 00:39:23

for all of us as Muslims

00:39:24--> 00:39:27

to realize the challenges that we're facing.

00:39:29--> 00:39:32

It is of no one interest.

00:39:33--> 00:39:40

And I want to tell you something I debated with myself should I be coming to that environmental.

00:39:41--> 00:39:45

And I'm not by the way, I'm not siding for Nobody. Nobody.

00:39:46--> 00:39:48

But I wanted to convey this message to you.

00:39:50--> 00:39:54

Don't become a self destructive community. Don't

00:39:56--> 00:39:57


00:40:00--> 00:40:04

It is time to pay attention to the challenges that are 6

00:40:06--> 00:40:12

billion or million billion I believe 6 billion non Muslims in the face of this earth

00:40:13--> 00:40:15

waiting for us to give them the doubt

00:40:19--> 00:40:32

and you know this is this is a good friday i think i mean it's all good Friday is always good for us but the hotbar should have been really about the second coming of age so that is a reduction What do we believe in this so that we can go on convey

00:40:34--> 00:40:35

on with our

00:40:37--> 00:40:37

with our

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

Don't look down here

00:40:42--> 00:40:43

look ahead.

00:40:45--> 00:40:59

Allah Subhana Allah one of the most fascinating things about flying and which I love so much I love so much you know I love the scene and I always go to my my my before I fly make sure I get a window seat you know when the airplane takes off

00:41:01--> 00:41:05

you know, the higher you go up, the smaller this world become

00:41:06--> 00:41:08

smaller this world become.

00:41:09--> 00:41:11


00:41:12--> 00:41:13

rise for Allah

00:41:15--> 00:41:16


00:41:19--> 00:41:23

sometimes a little bit when people are fighting over this small piece of Earth

00:41:27--> 00:41:36

akula Holyhead our stuff and hamdulillah horrible and I mean, level handle huson was Sena Jamil?

00:41:37--> 00:41:43

shadow Allah Allah illallah wa Jalla yaku serene

00:41:45--> 00:41:52

shadow Mohammedan Abdo sola, sola Lavalle alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam,

00:41:54--> 00:41:56

my brothers and sisters in Islam

00:41:58--> 00:42:03

Alhamdulillah by the grace of Allah subhana wa Taala We're here.

00:42:04--> 00:42:05

We're together

00:42:07--> 00:42:10

there is always a ground

00:42:11--> 00:42:14

for us to be together.

00:42:16--> 00:42:20

It is time for the elders of our community here

00:42:22--> 00:42:28

to simply try to be out there and bro active

00:42:29--> 00:42:31

in building bridges.

00:42:33--> 00:42:39

You know, like I said, in my football, deferring is a natural process.

00:42:41--> 00:42:44

We will differ. There is no question about it.

00:42:45--> 00:42:48

But like I mentioned, don't neglect it.

00:42:49--> 00:42:50

And don't be extreme about it.

00:42:52--> 00:42:53

There is a good way to go about it.

00:42:55--> 00:42:59

There is no perfect person here. I'm not there is no perfect institution there.

00:43:01--> 00:43:02

There is no such thing.

00:43:04--> 00:43:10

We all have shortcomings Effie La ilaha illAllah, we all have shortcomings. There is nobody's perfect.

00:43:11--> 00:43:15

But let's follow the middle way.

00:43:16--> 00:43:22

The just feel balanced way of correcting the situation.

00:43:23--> 00:43:27

We will don't cause a greater chaos.

00:43:28--> 00:43:33

Because we have children out there waiting to be educated

00:43:35--> 00:43:38

waiting to be filled with the dean.

00:43:40--> 00:43:49

This is the message I came to convey to you other on one lie or lie this room. I was supposed to be in Melbourne Australia, which is I think two days ago the drama is already gone.

00:43:52--> 00:43:59

And we have a blizzard in Denver and they changed my route and it came through here.

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

It's just so panela

00:44:02--> 00:44:04

you know let me go and see my brother was in Birmingham

00:44:05--> 00:44:07

and just convey a short message to them.

00:44:09--> 00:44:13

Maybe brothers we can get back together.

00:44:15--> 00:44:16

Yet Allahu Allah, Gemma.

00:44:18--> 00:44:21

The hand of Allah the help of Allah is with the JAMA

00:44:23--> 00:44:32

la ATL, and I spoke to a lot of the brothers before coming. We're all losers at the end. We will lose

00:44:34--> 00:44:36

and the cause of Allah loses.

00:44:37--> 00:44:39

Let's walk over our

00:44:40--> 00:44:41

egos in

00:44:42--> 00:44:43

and work for Allah.

00:44:46--> 00:44:47

You know,

00:44:48--> 00:44:52

one of the people who was jailed in Egypt

00:44:53--> 00:44:54

and he tells me that story.

00:44:56--> 00:44:58
