hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala MV mursaleen Allah Allah He was heavy a giant worldwide. My dear brothers and sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:13--> 00:01:01

I want to remind myself and you have a very important thing that relates to our conditions, the global conditions that we, as Muslims find ourselves in, in different countries where we live. And these conditions as you know, are very difficult from being completely almost impossible to ranging between that and things which are difficult but not impossible. Basically, difficult times trials, tribulations tests, that we as a community, Muslims are facing globally. We ask Allah subhanaw taala for his mercy in helping us to move through this into times which are which are better for all of us.

00:01:02--> 00:01:08

I remind myself and you that Allah subhanaw taala told us why these conditions happen.

00:01:09--> 00:01:50

And what we need to do if we want to save ourselves from these situations. In this room, Allah subhanaw taala said zaros xrl pasado Phil burry? Well Buhari Bhima cassava agenus. lasondra said that the facade, the trials, the tribulations, the difficulties that are on the sea and Wonderland are the result of the actions that come from the hands of people, the Mikasa Edna's, we earn these we work for these, and these are payment for our actions. And why does Why does this happen? Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that as well. He said Lee usic obey the law, the law

00:01:51--> 00:02:30

allows writers so that the people who are creating these difficulties and by this doesn't mean any specific people, it means human beings as a whole. And definitely we Muslims as part of those human beings, who are the recipients of the Quran will carry. So therefore we are supposed to no better. So Alice Rhonda says that these conditions that you find yourselves in the difficulties that you find yourselves in are the result of the creation of your own actions. And Allah subhanho wa Taala allows these difficulties to happen. So that you can get a taste of the punishment that you are trying to earn for yourself.

00:02:32--> 00:03:09

And why that so that you can turn towards Allah subhanaw taala. So we don't what Allah subhanho wa Taala we will be saved from this, from this punishment in sort of the size Dallas rantala mentioned this in another way, where where Allah subhanho wa Taala jalaja Lalu. He said, Well, no Zika no minerals, I will do not as I will activate de la la mujer do the same thing, which is that Allah said, we give them a small punishment before the big punishment, so that they turned towards us, meaning that if we turn towards Allah subhanaw taala, the big punishment will not happen. To give you an analogy to understand this, if a child extends his or her hand towards a fire, the mother

00:03:09--> 00:03:52

will slap the wrist, it's a gentle tap, but it hurts. And the reason for this hurt is because the hurt of the burned through the fire will be much more who is doing that the one who loves the child, the one who's concerned about the child is actually hurting the child so that the child saves himself or herself from punishment, which is much more severe from hurt, which will be much more painful and much more long lasting. And this is this is the analogy to explain why these trials and tribulations that come actually come as a result of the mercy of Allah subhanho data, because Allah subhanaw taala wants to turn us towards himself, so that we can live a life which is better in this

00:03:52--> 00:04:35

world for ourselves and for others, as well as save ourselves from the punishment to the hereafter for as the consequence of our actions. So therefore, we need to think about this and say, we are in difficulties. So what must we do? As I explained to you here, the reason for the difficulties, Alice mantell explained to us and that reason is we ourselves, not saying that everything bad in the world is a result of Muslims or Muslims actions. I'm talking about humanity as a whole, of which we Muslims are a part. And all that is bad in the world is, which is happening is as a result of the actions of human beings. We have global warming, we have climate change. We have a shortage of

00:04:35--> 00:05:00

water, we have destruction of habitat, we have animal species, which are disappearing at a very alarming rate, which will come back to affect us in a very bad way. We have wars, we have suffering, we have poverty. We have a huge gap between the haves and the have nots. There's this complete, completely insane situation, where a miniscule part of the population of this world owns resources.

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

Which are which are more than the resources owned by 50% or more of the world, all of these can be traced back to the actions of human beings. They're not pinpointing anyone, not pinpointing even the Muslims and just saying that we are part of we are part of the problem. And therefore, if we want to solve the problem, we have to become part of the solution. Now, what is the solution? In my view, there are two things that must be done if we want to get out of these difficulties. The first one again we go back to the Quran, the Quran is the best guide. The Quran is the Quran of Allah subhanaw taala it's the best guidance that anyone can ever have. And this comes to us through the Messenger

00:05:38--> 00:06:18

of Allah subhanho data and is Habib Muhammad salla Allahu Allahu Allah Azza wa sallam, and that is what we follow. We follow the Quran and we follow the tuff see the living proof and the living demonstration of the meaning of the Quran, which is the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So therefore, it was explained to us the reason now what must be do as I said two things. First one is what Allah subhanaw taala again advised us in the Quran, where Allah subhanaw taala said in the La Jolla Maru Bill agilely, sir, we hear this ayah in Juma every Juma everywhere in the world. We hear this is at the end of the second hot bath in the La Jolla maravilla de la Sir, what

00:06:18--> 00:06:40

is in Cabo and hanifa Moon Carmel Valley, boom La Laguna de Corona, I'm not going into the whole I am looking only at the first two things which Allah subhanaw taala commanded us and Allah subhanaw taala in the La Jolla Maru bill ugly Alyssa, Verily Allah subhanaw taala has commanded you to be just to establish justice, and then to do more than that, one.

00:06:41--> 00:07:33

Excellence, Justice is to do what is required, Justice is to give what is due to whoever it is due to justice is to give what is due to the environment, to the world, to the atmosphere, to the water, to the resources of this world, Justice is to give what is due to the birds of the animals and the trees and the plants. Justice is to give what is due to the human beings of this world, irrespective of who they might be no boundary of caste, or creed, or culture or race or religion or nationality. There is absolutely no boundary whatsoever. There is no discriminatory factor in the establishment of justice, as per Islam, Justice in Islam is from Allah subhanaw taala. And what is just for one

00:07:33--> 00:08:21

person is exactly the same thing which is considered as just for another person, no matter what that person, the between the two, no matter what the difference might be in any way, justice means the same. And Allah subhanaw taala therefore said in a la jolla Moreau, Bill idol, Allah subhanaw taala said established justice. Now what is justice? Justice is to give what is due in our frame of reference, if I'm working in an organization, Justice is to ensure that I work for the salary for the money that I get that I'm I make sure that my productivity that my output is equal to the salary that I'm being paid, that I am giving at least that much. What is justice in a marriage justice in a

00:08:21--> 00:09:02

marriage is to ensure that we fulfill the rights of our spouse? Many people come to me and say, and they asked me, they said, What are my rights? I tell them think about your duties. Don't think about your rights, because your duties you will be questioned upon, you will not be questioned about your rights. So what must a person do? Make sure that you fulfill the rights of the other, which is our duties? So therefore, justice, is to fulfill the rights of the spouse justice is to fulfill the rights of children? What is the rights of a child? What are the rights of children, the first and foremost most important right of the child is that the child gets a safe environment at home and

00:09:02--> 00:09:45

gets a very good moral upbringing and guidance. This is justice as far as children are concerned. Right. So parents, what are the rights of parents that they be served, that they be obeyed, that they be honored and respected for what they have given us? justice means give give the rights to the countries the states that we live in? What does that mean? It means follow the law. It means do not try to do to subvert or bypass the law of the land, the law of the land must be followed. What is the meaning of justice as far as our neighbors are concerned, make sure that I as a Muslim, am not the cause of any discomfort whatsoever. I'm not even using the word harm, because that's that

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

serious. I'm talking about discomfort that I as a Muslim, I'm not a means or source of discomfort to my neighbor in any way whatsoever. And as I said, as I said earlier, this applies irrespective of whether the neighbor is a mother the

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

The concept of justice in Islam is one which is justice is to do and to give what is due to the other, whoever that other might be. So in the La Jolla Maru bill while SSR we will look at that

00:10:17--> 00:10:24

next to say what is the meaning of Asana and why did I say other which is justice and then he said,

00:10:25--> 00:10:28

to come back to inshallah, we come back on that.

00:10:29--> 00:10:35
