Let another Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen or salat wa salam O Allah. mousseline, Muhammad Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just leaving Zeeland cathedra from Nevada myrobalan sisters, the longer I live, the more I reflect on Islam and on the Sierra of Roswell as a solemn, the more I am convinced that at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is what we practice what we are able to show the world and show the world not because we are in the business of showing anybody anything, but because the world watches. So if we practice Islam, then that is effective. If we do not practice Islam, then that is also effective in a negative sense.

00:00:49 --> 00:00:56

And that's the reason why we have all these classes that we are trying to do now for the last one year, here in America.

00:00:57 --> 00:01:02

Both all of them actually living Islam of love of the Almighty

00:01:04 --> 00:01:15

lessons from the umbilical Salaam, and right now we're looking at lessons of from sort of the look man lessons of Mali Salaam. Before that, we looked at lessons on the life of hakimullah thumb,

00:01:17 --> 00:01:24

around the valley, so different things, the whole point of all of this is to give us some pointers, give us some ideas, give us some,

00:01:26 --> 00:01:38

give us some thoughts or reflections on number one, the importance of living by our beautiful religion, and to ensure that we practice that in our lives, as somebody said,

00:01:39 --> 00:01:48

Every time you take a deep breath, reflect on this, that this breath that Allah subhanaw taala gave you is not only his blessing, but it says it is a responsibility.

00:01:50 --> 00:02:10

If Allah subhanaw taala gives us one day more one life one year more, one minute more, in one hour more in our lives, then that minute, that hour, that day, that year, must be spent in obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Somebody asked me a question the other day, and they said,

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

they said that how can fit

00:02:17 --> 00:02:24

help us to identify and live by the purpose of our life?

00:02:25 --> 00:02:36

And I replied, and I said is What a strange question. What else other than fits, can help you to identify and live by the purpose of your life because after all,

00:02:38 --> 00:02:45

without faith, then it seems that purpose of life is to continue to exist to survive,

00:02:46 --> 00:02:50

to eat, to drink, and to do whatever pleases us

00:02:51 --> 00:02:52


00:02:54 --> 00:03:08

make a few babies, or have some relationships, and then Monday, you die. So I said, um, what is the difference then, if that is what life is supposed to be? What is the difference between you and a cockroach?

00:03:10 --> 00:03:22

Or you and any non human creature, and I'm saying specifically cockroach, because cockroaches are, we look, we look down on them, and we consider them to be beneath our dignity and

00:03:23 --> 00:03:42

you know, we stomp on them and kill them. But we know that in the event of a nuclear holocaust, the only probably the only thing which will survive our coverage, so they have pretty strong as far as surviving is concerned. But is that what is that how we want to look at ourselves and think of ourselves as cockroaches, creatures without purpose.

00:03:43 --> 00:03:50

You know, just just just living, breathing. to breed is not to draw breath is not to live to live is not to draw breath.

00:03:52 --> 00:03:55

to breathe, to live has to be a lot more than that.

00:03:57 --> 00:04:36

To live has to be something which is has significance which has value and which eels results in our life. And again, as I said, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter who's watching you. It doesn't matter who is applauding you or criticizing your work. Oh, the only thing that matters is that Allah subhanaw taala is watching you. So do what you do sincerely, if only to praise Allah subhanaw taala and pat yourself on doing the best that you can do absolute excellence in what you do, do what you do to the best of your ability, not because of who's watching but because of who you are.

00:04:39 --> 00:04:46

Think of it and say that this is my work. Even if no one sees it, it's still my work. And I want that work.

00:04:48 --> 00:04:59

To be my best representative because my work is my representative anyway. whether I like it or not. My work is my signature. My work is my face my

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

Work is my persona. My only choice is do I want an ugly face or I want a guru face. That's it. If face it is going to be no matter what you do or don't do, this is what will be out there.

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

And as I said the out there the only one who matters there is a lot of nanotech.

00:05:18 --> 00:05:54

So do your work sincerely only to please Allah subhanaw taala and insha Allah and do it to the best of your ability because Allah is watching not for anybody else because I was watching and inshallah Allah subhanaw taala, then will make that work beneficial for all concerned. Yeah, it's not, it's not a matter of looking at. And that's really why I'm so dead against all this social media stuff. I mean, I know some I know, this is also going on social media, you know what is going to do. But the point is that to follow that, I mean, using it as a tool like we're using it is one thing, but to continuously follow it, and also what's much more, what what is really damaging is to peg yourself

00:05:54 --> 00:05:58

based on the popularity on social media

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

today that people are popular on social media who, who should be banned from ever opening their mouth.

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

But they're there, they're there and they've got, you know, millions of followers and, and so on and so forth.

00:06:13 --> 00:06:48

That is not an indication of anything is not an indication of scholarship is not an indication of a buzzer V is not an indication of sincerity, it's not an indication of the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala is not an indication of anything at all. The problem is that the people who are watching us, the people who are looking at us are not seriously I mean, I'm not. I'm sorry to sound okay, they're not qualified to judge. They're not they don't have the ability to judge. So that's why somebody looks at our airports and says, Oh my god, fantastic, what a great scholar, we do know what a great scholar is.

00:06:49 --> 00:06:55

Have you ever met a great scholar? Do you know what is the what are the criteria of judging whether somebody is a great scholar or not?

00:06:58 --> 00:07:06

And ideally, what is the what is the criteria what is not a great scholar, I am a criteria, what is not a great scholar? I've said this a million times, I am not a great scholar, so stop calling me a great scholar.

00:07:09 --> 00:07:24

Look for that there were there were times when people actually were in the presence of great scholars. And so they had some, they had some discretion, they had some some criteria of judgment. Today, unfortunately, we are living in a world which is which is bankrupt.

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

So who do we judge against? And that's why don't go in there to judge anybody. Right? You are not qualified. I'm not qualified to judge forget that. Look at or listen to not even look at listen to what the person is say. take from it what is good and apply it in your life. If we can do this much I think we are. We are we are onto a good thing. Our sister we are looking at the color of the Almighty. And in that we are looking at the ayat of of swords of Oregon, where Allah mentioned, the his particular and his favorite slaves we call a battle Rama, the abode of man, the slaves of the one who is Most Beneficent and most merciful.

00:08:09 --> 00:08:14

And in that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the qualities of another man which he likes.

00:08:15 --> 00:08:30

And in those qualities, we mentioned some other qualities earlier. So I won't repeat that. Today we look at the quality wireless workers who do not witness falsehood. And if they pass by some evil play, or evil talk, they passed by it with dignity.

00:08:31 --> 00:08:35

My brothers and sisters, to live Islam is to live thoughtfully.

00:08:36 --> 00:09:28

To live with an understanding of the consequences of action to understand that we are free to choose but no choice is free. every choice comes with a price tag, to choose wisely and consciously and pick what is best for our everlasting future. That is Islam. There is no place in Islam for the useless the west for the thoughtless, or the future. For that which distracts which intoxicates which makes us forget our Creator, our purpose and our future. Lower is the term that is used here. And level is the term that the Quran uses to describe all of those things, which are considered at best wasteful, and at worst, positively sinful and manageable. Music tops that list easily,

00:09:28 --> 00:09:51

especially string and wind instruments allows real time resources and specifically forbid the use of string and wind instruments and that applies to those sounds. It doesn't apply to the strings. It applies to the sounds that come from those instruments. Believe me when we look at how these things are obvious question immediately was also what's aware about that.

00:09:52 --> 00:09:55

So what's available What's so bad about a guitar what's bad about a flute

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

This is where the issue of test of faith comes with.

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

We say as Muslims, that I am not going to argue about something that was realized or seldom, privately, I am not going to argue about something that Allah subhanaw taala privated The reason being, that I believe as a Muslim, that Allah subhanaw taala knows what is best. And Rosaura Sara knows what is best, and I do not know what is best. Now, if this is not our basic fundamental position, then it's impossible to for us to really believe and to really have faith and demand and to,

00:10:36 --> 00:10:50

to accept and take what has been made her and to leave what is we will always and forever be stuck in this confusion of Shabbat and shock of doubts and and

00:10:51 --> 00:11:32

have suspicions where we will never be able to believe because constantly it will be our own logic and our own so called intelligence in conflict with the revealed word of Allah subhanaw taala. So that's why I am not even going to go into any justifications or arguments to say, Well, this is the reason that is the reason for everything I tell you, you will have a counterpoint I don't want to go in, I don't want to go in there. I want to simply say to you, that I believe what my Rob della della who tells me, I believe what was what a lie is a lesson of jasmine. And I try my best to follow that to the best of my ability. If I if I make a mistake, if I fall short, then I ask Allah Subhana Allah

00:11:32 --> 00:11:54

to forgive me, I don't argue against it. I don't say it is wrong. I don't say that I know better, I don't see any of that. I follow it, I agree with it, I accept it, I follow it to the best of my ability, I try to follow it. And if I fall short and we are all human, we fall short. Then I ask Allah Subhana Allah Jalla did Allah to forgive me for that?

00:11:55 --> 00:11:56

My brother just is

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


00:12:03 --> 00:12:06

Think about this, you know, the issue of,

00:12:08 --> 00:12:11

of intoxication, the issue of,

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

of forgetfulness, the issue of something influencing your mind, you know, anyone who understands music, needs no convincing about the intoxicating effect it has on one senses, and the involuntary movements, that it forces the body to do the thought that thoughts that it invokes and the reactions that it creates, none of them lead to anything except momentary pleasure, leading to long time trauma. Just listen to any tune and there are so many, many tunes

00:12:48 --> 00:13:34

on the on the internet, I don't I'm I'm tempted to suggest a few to you. But I don't want to do that because sadly, the videos that go with them on YouTube are an even bigger fitrah than the tune itself. So I'm going to, I'm not going to suggest does I don't want to be the one to say those things to you. But I'm sure all of you are more much more than me aware of the the effect of music. One of the simplest things that if you if you if you just listen to drums, for example, right, your feet will your foot will start tapping in time in tune to the to the beat of the drum. The same thing applies to any almost anything else your body intrinsically reacts Now you might say well if

00:13:34 --> 00:13:57

this thing is so natural if this thing is so much in it, why is it private? Now it's not a it's not a foreign thing to respond to music is in our system and unless Mandela made it like that, so it's in our system it's a natural thing that we love listening to music, music you know sends us off into another world music

00:13:58 --> 00:14:17

takes us away from an especially if you are in some stressful situation listening to music takes you away from there. So you are happy about that that this has taken you haven't taken anyway you're still there. And when that music ends you have to open your eyes to the same stress that you are in but you know at least momentarily it gives you this this feeling of of

00:14:18 --> 00:14:23

of elation and the feeling of escape and then of course it's it's something that

00:14:25 --> 00:14:59

you know it did it completely and totally takes you like realize like it's like been a flood you know come you forget everything. You forget all your surroundings you forget everything and depending on the music depending on the surroundings, and then you might start dancing to it and so on and so forth. And if somebody just does the moods the thing and you see those dances, you know what I'm talking about right? I mean I don't have to explain these things to you. I think all of this is is available. And I'm strongly telling a please do not watch this. Do not watch all these don't watch those music music videos.

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

Don't watch those dances just take my word for it. And I don't think you I know, I know you guys. So, the point is that you know, and I know the reason why it is private. So, if somebody says that here is something which is so natural, so in our system, why is it private, you know, my definition of civilization is to do is to,

00:15:28 --> 00:16:04

is not to do not not do, and my definition of civilization is not to do that which comes naturally except in an appropriate situation. Right. So, in some cases, to be civilized is not to do something, even though it's natural. In other cases, it is not to do that thing in that spot in that place at that time, even though it's very natural, but to do it in some other place all the time. Right? I think about this when you were when you were less than a year old. When you when you want it to go What do you did? You went

00:16:05 --> 00:16:13

right and you said you were a little little you know, six pounds, six pounds old guy and so if you could talk he would have said you know, and you got to go you got to go

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

more you do today

00:16:18 --> 00:16:36

when you got to go, you go to the place where you got to go and then you go there. You don't go where you are that civilization and mela protect us all from from these these ailments. If somebody who has dementia What does he do? He does what he was what he used to do when he was six months old.

00:16:39 --> 00:16:45

So when that happens, it's okay it's natural. Go wipe it up No, no to

00:16:47 --> 00:17:00

overcome to control natural urges. We have all kinds of urges. And I don't want to make a list of urges. We have all sorts of urges. Let me tell you some, some some some you know,

00:17:01 --> 00:17:05

decent ones and and thing between for example dieting. What's that?

00:17:07 --> 00:17:13

dieting is to control our urge and natural urge for carbs for sugars.

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

And for quantities of food.

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

I mean, put me in front of some proper Hyderabadi biryani and sorry My apologies because there is nothing else which is called biryani right Hyderabadi

00:17:34 --> 00:17:42

put me in front of a part of the vat. I will eat that thing left myself I would like to eat that thing, including the pot.

00:17:46 --> 00:17:46

But I don't

00:17:47 --> 00:17:49

if I did I would not be sitting here.

00:17:50 --> 00:17:52

You would be doing further on my power.

00:17:54 --> 00:17:55

I don't

00:17:57 --> 00:18:03

I control myself and I say I will eat only so much because if I eat more it's going to harm me.

00:18:06 --> 00:18:16

Sweets I love sugar. I love I love sweets. Especially Hyderabadi sweets, my family my mother's side of the family we are famous for the kinds of sweets today.

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

But believe me, I mean I some of those things I do not even eat maybe once in a year.

00:18:27 --> 00:18:34

And I'm not the only one i'm sure any of you and truly nowadays when everybody's on some diet or the other somebody is doing keto somebody is doing

00:18:36 --> 00:18:38

intermittent fasting somebody is doing something else.

00:18:40 --> 00:18:43

We are controlling what is natural.

00:18:44 --> 00:18:46

Nothing unnatural about hunger.

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

The most natural thing in the world we control it. What about anger?

00:18:53 --> 00:19:16

Is it natural or not natural? It is natural. But what do you say who's a civilized person? Somebody who raves and rants and votes at the mouth every time he gets angry or somebody who gets angry. But then who expresses that anger in a positive way. Keeping in mind and keeping being careful about the dignity and self esteem of the other person.

00:19:18 --> 00:19:29

So I can tell you that I am sorry I do not like what you have said I do not like what you did. This is the reason why it is wrong. I'm very upset with this. I'm very angry about this. I can say that to you in a very decent very polite manner.

00:19:31 --> 00:19:32


00:19:34 --> 00:19:40

So also music. Is it natural? Yes it is natural. And the last person to say it is not natural.

00:19:41 --> 00:19:44

Is it natural to be attracted to it? Yes of course the natural

00:19:45 --> 00:19:51

is it natural to be swayed by to be to be affected by it? Yes, of course it's natural.

00:19:52 --> 00:19:59

But what should we do? We should do what Allah subhanaw taala told us to do we should do one as soon as a solemn told us to do and that is

00:20:00 --> 00:20:05

Leave it alone do not fall into that trap, leave it alone.

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

Don't do that.

00:20:09 --> 00:20:31

marathon sisters, those who try to legitimize this and those who try to say no no it is it is hard and so on. So, they are trying to legitimize what Allah subhanaw taala and Rasulullah Salim have prohibited and therefore they must be aware and they must be aware of the consequences of their actions. Now, some evidence of this,

00:20:32 --> 00:20:47

when Allah, Allah Allah will be known and levena home fee Salatin hajian will Lavina home Annie love we Morrigan last round Tara said successful indeed other believers, those who pray will establish their Salah

00:20:48 --> 00:20:56

with cushaw with submissiveness and and sincerity, and those who turn away from all love.

00:20:57 --> 00:21:02

And ilahi moredun era from the level and

00:21:03 --> 00:21:26

in Islam, and as I said, lava has been interpreted as all kinds of dirty, dirty jokes, obscenity, profanity, all sorts of false evil, all lies, you know everything that Allah has forbidden in Islam, those who commit a sin, those who aid and abet in it.

00:21:28 --> 00:21:35

in that condition of that sin, as well as those who are silent witnesses to it, and who do nothing to stop it

00:21:36 --> 00:22:20

are all considered partners in crime. If somebody is doing LIBOR, if somebody is backbiting, the person speaking and backbiting is a culprit, a person listening to that is also a culprit and they're both equally culpable in that particular matter, which is haram and to it is haram to the extent where also Sonam said that backbiting is like eating the flesh of your dead brother. And Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that in the Quran, Allah installed the Hydra smartasset for courage to listen and to undo to find is disgusting. Why do you do that? Right? And Alice rattle up promised punishment I wish I was the one who does way back of somebody, the good deeds of this person who is

00:22:20 --> 00:22:27

speaking and those around him or her who are listening are transferred to the account of the one who they are criticizing.

00:22:29 --> 00:23:02

To think about that, today, our whole social life is this. We constantly backed off people will remember the day of judgment. Remember what how would you like it on the Day of Judgment, that those people you bet talked are going to be very well off because they will they will carry all your good deeds. And you are the one who was going to be destitute on the day of judgment because all your good deeds you gave away to the one that you disliked. And how brainless is that. That is why I'm a bar around the land. I said if I want to do it, but I will do live with my mother because at least my good deeds will go to my mother who I love and respect.

00:23:04 --> 00:23:06

Hmm, think about that.

00:23:08 --> 00:23:49

My brother sisters, the distinction of a Muslim is that he or she enjoys and promotes and helps in what is right and stops. What is wrong. Muslim was also always act for good. That is why last Ramadan so the Maya Allah said tavano Allah will be re what taqwa wa tavano Allah is me Well, when I was around, does it help each other in albir and taqwa, in piety and in being conscious of the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala advise each other, help each other to live life like that. And Latham Allah is giving us a do not help one another,

00:23:50 --> 00:24:31

in a one on one in sin and in rebellious things. So if somebody is doing something wrong, do not help them in that. Don't facilitate that don't allow them to do that, try to stop try to do your best to stop them from doing that. What is lived, please don't sit there and watch and don't participate in what they are doing, either actively or passively. It's very, very important. And if you think that passive passive participation is not important, think passive smoking, for example, if somebody's smoking a cigarette, you don't smart road, stop that person, you're sitting in the room, then you are also going to be stinking without cigarette smoke, and that person's what he is

00:24:31 --> 00:24:33

excelling, or she's excelling, you are inhaling.

00:24:35 --> 00:24:59

So both the lungs of both of you are getting shot. Because you are not leaving the place and you are not stopping the other person is a good way to understand the importance of enjoining good and forbidding evil, and why even silent participation is equally harmful. It doesn't matter. You can't say well, you know, I didn't buy the cigarette. I didn't pay for it. I didn't light it. It wasn't in my mouth. It doesn't matter. You still

00:25:00 --> 00:25:12

Inhale that smoke. And even though that person paid for it, you got it for free. I mean, that's the only difference. But both of you are now prime candidates for lung cancer and many, many other things.

00:25:13 --> 00:25:53

Right? So think about that. The concept, there is really no concept of a Muslim being a silent witness to wrongdoing, whatever the wrongdoing may be, there is no concept of a Muslim silently watching that happen and doing nothing about it. So those are some of the famous Hadees of I will say that Allahu Allah said that if you see whosoever whichever one of you see anything wrong, stop it with his hand. And if you can't do that, then speak out against it, stop it with your tongue swab or stop with your mouth. Or if you cannot even do that, then hate it in your heart. Meaning if you hate something, then you get out of there law, don't stay there. Don't sit there. don't participate.

00:25:53 --> 00:26:07

Don't be in that company. Obviously, you can't say I hate this. But I'm sitting here, no, I'm sitting here. So if you hate it, get out of there. And there was another person that last thing which is just hating, not taking any action and not speaking just hating

00:26:08 --> 00:26:11

them, this is the sign of the weakness of your faith.

00:26:12 --> 00:26:27

So therefore, we ask Allah to strengthen our even Shall I brothers sisters, there are many evidences of this in the Quran, that the Muslim has been enjoined and has been told has been ordered to take action and to ensure that good is done

00:26:28 --> 00:27:14

and that evil is stopped. So the one who does nothing to stop you. And instead of that participates in it, even if it is bad, even if that is by passive participation is considered a partner of the evildoer. Now, again, as I said, you know, music is one of the things we try to ignore and we pretend that it's it's okay. What is not okay. As I told you, what is natural is not always good, what is instinctive is not always good, it may be instinctive, but civilization to be civilized, to be a person of honor, means to overcome these urges to overcome these instinctive things to overcome some things which are natural, because we know that even though they are natural, they are not good.

00:27:14 --> 00:27:22

They are harmful, potentially harmful, they're really harmful, and we don't do them in out of context and in some cases, we don't do them at all.

00:27:23 --> 00:27:24

My brothers and sisters

00:27:27 --> 00:28:19

so the look man and woman are nasima yesterday Lucha de si de de la danza de la he be radium Wyatt Aviva hula, hula ecola, whom Allah boom mo hain and of mankind is He Who burgesses who buys idle talk, which is music, to mislead people from the path of Allah subhanaw taala without knowledge and takes it the path of Allah as a mockery as a joke. For such of them there will be a humiliating trauma in the hellfire. We ask Allah to save us from that. The great scholar of Islam, Abdullah bin abass are the Allahu anhu and the Mufasa of the Quran. He said that this law Hadith means seeing and Mujahid.

00:28:21 --> 00:29:07

He said this means playing the drum in this isn't of syrup debris. So very, very important to understand. This is how the Sahaba understood, and this is our pseudo solemn explain these ayat, Al Azhar Buster antologia, said this I was revealed concerning singing and musical instruments, that is woodwind instruments is talking about flutes and so on. And, and sitar guitar, all of that other stuff. And this isn't of the kafir. The important thing is I mentioned to you is rubbish and means prohibition of the sound. If someone takes a guitar and makes it into a coffee table, this is fine. Right? playing it because of the sound. It's our guitar string is not Haram. So if you take a guitar

00:29:07 --> 00:29:49

string and do something else with it, it's not it. There's no problem with that. The reason I'm saying that is today, people make those sounds with their mouth. Right? It's called beatboxing for some funny reason. I don't know why. And I see even a lot of Islamic or so called Islamic Muslim channels using that and they have some, you know, some some fancy fatwa to say that this is permissible. My point is what when Allah said this is private and my name is Philip said, musical instrument, which is wind and especially, I mean, they all privated but especially wind and stringed instruments are privated. What was he referring to is referring to that piece of wood I was

00:29:49 --> 00:29:58

referring to the sound that it makes. And basic, simple logic. Try to understand don't don't fool yourself, and then install the Lissa

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

to amuse

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

evidences in the Quran were distributed.

00:30:03 --> 00:30:56

Last rattler said was stubs his money Stata min home be solotica yg liberally him behind the kawaji leka sharekhan philam Walla Walla de vida, my arrow to home Machito illa rura. And his stuff says, be fooled them gradually, those whom you can among them with your voice, which is the music and so on and any other call for a lot of disobedience, make assaults on them with your cavalry and your infantry mutually share with them wealth and children by tempting them to earn money by illegal ways and make promises to them, but shaitan promises them nothing but deceit, this is what I must run into the challenge to do it, do it God misguide them how, by music by suggesting to them things to

00:30:56 --> 00:31:06

do which are which Allah has prohibited by suggesting to them ways of making money which Allah has made illegal, right all this interest with banking and so on and so on.

00:31:07 --> 00:31:20

And make promises to them which of course I'm cannot keep the promises. So unless I said on promises them, but what he promises them is only deceit, he does not he cannot keep the promise he has no power to do that. It was narrated, that Buddha has

00:31:21 --> 00:31:30

said and before them gradually those whom you can among them with your voice that is was the minister Tommy nombe zoetic

00:31:32 --> 00:32:25

is the voice of shatta in a singing as well as in Fall should internalize in the genre, he said, this is alpha, which is the possessive or genitive construction that is your voice serves to make the meaning specific as with the phrases translated as your cavalry and your infantry later in the same ayah anyway, everyone who speaks in any way that is not obedient to Allah subhanaw taala everyone who goes into a flute or who or some other woodwind instrument or plays any haram kind of drum. This is the voice of shatta Rasool Allah Sallam said in the Hadees in torani Buhari I'll be happy. He said among my oma there will certainly be people who will permit Xena silk, alcohol and

00:32:25 --> 00:33:11

musical instruments is this which is to say what is an array and it is collected in a hurry at avani and Albuquerque. As soon as a solemn is reported to have said about my oma, there will certainly be people. He said that people will come in the coming coming generations who will permit Now listen to the words, who will permit Zinner who will permit the use of silk by men who will permit alcohol drinking of alcohol. And of course, that refers to all kinds of intoxicants and who will permit musical instruments. Now I'm not a manager Angela Lee. He said that this is a say Hadith narrated by Al Bukhari and Sahih. The Hadees indicates in two ways that musical instruments and enjoy enjoyment

00:33:11 --> 00:33:52

of listening to music are Haram. The first is the fact that a solo Saracen observed a permit, which clearly indicates that the things mentioned including musical instruments are haram according to the Sharia, but people will permit them. Otherwise, why would you say they will permit because if it isn't already permitted, where is the question of somebody is coming and re permitting something. So if he's saying they will permit meaning that they are not permitted, somebody will come and they will try to change the Sharia of Islam. The second thing is the fact that musical instruments are mentioned alongside things which are definitely haram which is you know, and alcohol. So, if the

00:33:52 --> 00:34:36

meaning of the musical instruments were not Haram, why would they be mentioned alongside these things? And this is from Silsila. Also here by chef Allah Bani Remo lightoller. So, in this Hadees there is a salami saying that musical instruments using the prohibited and the way he said it and the construction of the Hadees even Okay, well Joseph Angela says that it is clear that these are haram and they are rebutted and is clear in two ways. One is the result of Solomon saying they will permit people will come will permit Xena and alcohol and the wearing of sick by men and musical instruments. So meaning that these four things denies drinking alcohol is haram. fornication denies

00:34:36 --> 00:34:48

haram drinking alcohol is haram for men to wear silk is haram and musical instruments are haram but they will be they will be people who will come and they will permit that. So that's one clear indication that the Haram

00:34:50 --> 00:34:59

second good indication is Allah. Allah mentioned musical instruments, along with three things which are clearly her nobody's going to argue that nobody's going to say that this

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

Islam by fornication and adultery is permissible. Nobody's going to argue and say in Islam, drinking of alcohol is permissible even if they are drinking it they know it is not permissible. Nobody would say that silk for men is permissible, because we all know all of these three things are Haram. And when the sooner Surah Surah mentions musical instruments along with these three things which are already around, it gives us an indication that musical instruments listening to them playing them song is also Haram, just like adultery just like drinking alcohol just like wearing silk.

00:35:35 --> 00:35:50

Even if they met hunter Lara, he said this hadith indicates that massive aha and massive means musical instruments according to the scholars of the Arabic language, and the word includes all such instruments. And this isn't

00:35:51 --> 00:36:01

in the Kamal, Kamal Joseph de la ley, he said and concerning the same topic, similar comments are narrated from Sal bin Saad, assadi

00:36:02 --> 00:36:38

Ivanovna Hussain, and many other people. I wrote a whole list of including the Sahaba like Anna's been Malik, Ayesha dishonor, delana momineen Abdurahman, even the Sabbath. Ozzy when robbia and Mama Pereira Abdullah Nia bus, I'm driving a hammer, all of these people have mentioned and agreed, and it's based on their understanding that people who came later like Kareem itself or to lolly,

00:36:39 --> 00:36:49

even Tamia and others, they extracted this ruling and this meaning, including Hassan al basura, to lolly, my brothers and sisters,

00:36:50 --> 00:36:59

it's very, very important for us to understand this Deen and to understand his Deen in terms of its

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

principles and its concepts and principles as well as the principles as well as its details of the principles very, very important for us to understand his Deen in this context, because if we don't understand it like that, then we cannot practice it and B, the whole purpose of

00:37:17 --> 00:37:28

practice is to a whole purpose of, of, of understanding is to practice it. So ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to,

00:37:29 --> 00:37:34

to practice this theme in a way which is

00:37:35 --> 00:37:41

which is pleasing to Him jealous, very, very important for us to understand this and to

00:37:42 --> 00:37:46

and to do this and to and to, you know, practice it in, in a way which is

00:37:48 --> 00:38:16

which is the which is the which is beneficial for us, and which is which will be a good reflection of Islam and Muslims for the rest of the world. My brother mentioned to you and I keep saying again and again, it's not a matter of showing to anybody it's a matter of doing it because you love Allah because you love them. Because you love this Deen. really seriously ask yourself what is a sense we Allah has given us Islam? Some of us were born into it, some of us got it hamdulillah

00:38:17 --> 00:38:59

detanglers ran into that he gave us this beautiful religion. He thank Allah did he give us religion which is real? There is no mythology in Islam. It's not a figment of anybody's imagination. It's not the writings of anyone, no matter how, you know, holy and scholarly that person might be. This is Dean which comes directly from Allah subhanaw taala gelatine Allah who it is, the word of Allah subhanaw taala revelation, and revealed to the best of all creation, Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam having God has great wealth, what sense does it make not to use it? And the way we use the wealth of Islam is to live by what else is there there is that that is the way to live. The live by

00:38:59 --> 00:39:23

is to live by Islam is to benefit from Islam. There is no other way. We win we benefit because we live by Islam. So this is very, very important for us to keep in mind and to benefit from Islam and and the way to thank Allah Subhana Allah for Islam is to live by Islam. Was Allah Allah Allah? Allah Allah He was savage may be romantic for me, while hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salam alikoum rahmatullah wa barakato
