Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Shara freedom VA will mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu

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

alayhi wa sallam doesn't even consider him cathedra from abajo. My brothers and sisters, I'm sitting out here on this very beautiful morning. It's very cloudy, which is in a way nice because it gives me the right kind of light

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

for this video,

00:00:28 --> 00:00:40

but it's very balmy and very nice weather. I think one of the few days left before it starts to get seriously cold.

00:00:41 --> 00:01:09

Thank Allah subhanho wa Taala did Allah for his beauty for the beauty and glory and majesty of his creation which is which completely surrounds us here. And of course surrounds all of us no matter where we live in different ways. And I ask Allah to enable us to continue to be grateful for that and to continue to enjoy it in good health and with the man and with your cane in the meeting with him gelato

00:01:13 --> 00:01:17

topic of today's reminder is cover their faults.

00:01:19 --> 00:01:36

And I'll tell you basically why I'm saying that it should be noted for you a few incidents small though they might be and all of them are incidents that point to one of what seems to have become our major preoccupation.

00:01:38 --> 00:01:56

When I say our I mean the preoccupation of Muslims, which is to correct other people, right to correct other Muslims basically it's to protect other Muslims and usually it is to correct our teachers to correct our oil ama to correct our issue

00:01:57 --> 00:02:18

to correct those people who take the time and trouble to leave whatever else they are doing in order to study the religion and to try to try to present it to you in a way that saves you from the hard work of learning it yourself. And usually the

00:02:20 --> 00:02:27

the things they get for that is to recover the targets for people taking potshots.

00:02:28 --> 00:02:30

Let me give you a give give a few examples.

00:02:35 --> 00:02:35

I was

00:02:37 --> 00:02:39

I go to quit

00:02:40 --> 00:02:41

you know very often

00:02:42 --> 00:02:51

and I was and whenever I go I underlie give. I'm invited to do a Juma in

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

which is the hotbar and also the Salah

00:02:58 --> 00:03:01

now on one visit and this is about maybe

00:03:02 --> 00:03:05

probably about four years ago or something like that

00:03:09 --> 00:03:13

I did the whole band goodbye now if I'm not mistaken was on sugar.

00:03:14 --> 00:03:16

And then I

00:03:17 --> 00:03:25

did the salah and in the Salah is a second in the first like I if I'm not mistaken I decided

00:03:28 --> 00:03:34

man some Iron Man in the second record I decided the last Ayatollah pleasure.

00:03:35 --> 00:03:46

So after the Salah, finished and so on and so on, when I got up to leave as usual unreal. I'm so grateful to Allah subhanaw taala for giving me

00:03:48 --> 00:04:03

giving me the love of people. We far exceeds what I deserve, but I'm not complaining. I'm humbled. I'm very grateful to Allah. So there was a long line of people waiting to meet me to shake my hand make moussaka so all the way to the door of the masjid.

00:04:05 --> 00:04:06

And I'm meeting each of them.

00:04:07 --> 00:04:11

And you know, each person has something nice to say they give some

00:04:12 --> 00:04:15

orders or somebody shares some

00:04:17 --> 00:04:20

thing they learned from the hotbar and so on and so forth.

00:04:23 --> 00:04:26

Many of them friends of mine, many of them strangers,

00:04:27 --> 00:04:33

until I got to almost the last person and this was a young man in his 20s

00:04:35 --> 00:04:41

and I said Salam alikoum he said while ago Salah, you forgot to recite one I attend sort of Hush.

00:04:44 --> 00:04:49

I said Which one? He said hola hola de la ilaha illa Huwa Shahada t hora, what?

00:04:51 --> 00:04:53

And I realized that I had forgotten.

00:04:55 --> 00:04:59

So I said thank you very much. And I left that's it yet he had nothing else to say only this

00:05:02 --> 00:05:23

From the perspective of cricket is not a mistake if the man forget forgets to recite a particular if it's not, it's not a problem there is no saho involved. There were probably a couple of 100 people in that must use who prayed and I'm sure he was not the only one who noticed that, but none of them considered it important enough to tell me whereas this

00:05:24 --> 00:06:07

boy thought it was important enough to point it out and the point is, what am I supposed to do now with this information? I forgot to I forgot Salah is over. Now, we in any case is not a mistake, that is palpable it is. forgetfulness is not a mistake, which is palpable. Even the leaving of the particular is one out of a number which you are reciting is not a problem. Alhamdulillah so what am I supposed to do with this information? I'm not complaining, I'm just explaining to you how people correct and why we should correct in a different way. Another another case, I was teaching a course on Sierra and it This was in Malaysia. And the last lecture of the course was in the night by the

00:06:07 --> 00:06:26

time it finished was about half past nine. And I'm talking about the Shama Allah so salam, I'm talking about his duty and his and everything and a lot about his sera sadhana and so on and so forth. Now, when that whole thing finished in Malaysia that of course, women and men also in the same in the same Hall, so there was one woman,

00:06:27 --> 00:06:40

again, a younger woman who stayed back. And to the extent that when everybody had left is only me and my friend Shanahan, who was the organizer of the whole event, just the two of us were there, and this one single lady.

00:06:41 --> 00:06:43

So and this is about 930 in the night.

00:06:45 --> 00:06:53

So as we were leaving, I said to her family, come, can I help you? Is there anything you need from me? She said, You drank water with your left hand.

00:06:55 --> 00:06:58

That's it. You drank water with your left hand. Now.

00:07:00 --> 00:07:38

I didn't say that to drink water with your left hand is Jaya is it is good. It will take you to Jana to drink water with your right hand is haram. I didn't say it just so happened that you know when you are in that day, there was no bike stand. So they gave me a handheld mic and I'm a right handed person. So the mic was in my right hand. And somebody put a put a bottle of water on my left hand. So I was talking all day and my throat got dry. So I picked it up and I drank this water with my left hand completely. You know, I'm thinking I was busy describing the beauty of Rosaura Salaam, I was not thinking about this particular thing. Yes, it was a mistake. But this lady thought it was,

00:07:39 --> 00:07:40

you know, she had to tell me that

00:07:42 --> 00:07:53

she waited till 930 in the night, when the whole thing is over before going home, where she tells me Do you drink water with your left hand? Again, what am I supposed to do with it now?

00:07:54 --> 00:07:57

So I said, my usual response, I said thank you very much.

00:07:58 --> 00:08:40

And I left to give you a third incident that this incident happened in a Masjid and I will not mention the masjid and so on. But it is a true incident like the others. I know the mosque is I know the people I know the person. I mean, I have heard about the person involved in this incident. And that is that there was an elderly guy, Adam origin. Maybe his grandparents came to America, and which is probably over a century ago. And they got completely lost in the American society and so on and so forth. He knew almost nothing about Islam. But he was a Muslim, and a Muslim. He worked for the City Council for the city government.

00:08:41 --> 00:08:58

So one day he met somebody, some other Muslim brother who told him Look, we have a budget and so on. Why don't you come? So he said, Sure. And he came. And he liked what he was seeing there. So he came and he sat in the budget, he would sit in the back on one of the chairs. And he did that a few times.

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

He just he would just sit there and he would watch

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

and whatever was going on. Now one day when Salah finished he was sitting in the back when Salah finished one hour. Mussolini's one of the one of the people bring the module one of the brothers.

00:09:17 --> 00:09:21

He gets up he comes to this guy. He asked him, Are you a Muslim?

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

The answer is yes.

00:09:27 --> 00:09:28

So why are you not playing with us?

00:09:30 --> 00:09:32

The man said, you know, I'm sorry. I don't know how to pray.

00:09:34 --> 00:09:40

Now, before I tell you what happened, tell me what would you do in that situation? Right? To the matter? I don't know. I don't know how to pray.

00:09:43 --> 00:09:52

If I wanted that situation, I would say to him fantastic. Would you like to learn Shall I teach you now? Are you free? Oh, you want to come back another time?

00:09:53 --> 00:09:59

Because I know that if I teach him to pray, then he's praying. Then every time you praise Allah is giving me some credit for that.

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

But you know what happened on that day?

00:10:03 --> 00:10:15

What happened on that day was this man asked him, I almost think he said, Yes. Why didn't you pray with us? The man says, I'm sorry, I don't know how to pray. This man says to him, I'm too ashamed of yourself.

00:10:17 --> 00:10:20

And you ashamed of yourself. You're so old and you don't know how to pray.

00:10:24 --> 00:10:27

That man had better luck than his character.

00:10:28 --> 00:10:33

So he got up. And he left. And he never came back.

00:10:34 --> 00:10:46

He never came back. I know for a fact that some of the brothers they went to him, they met him. They heard about the incident and they went to him and met him. They apologized. And they said to him, please come back to the machine and so on. He said, No.

00:10:47 --> 00:10:52

He said, I'm done with that. I have no desire to be insulted. Sorry.

00:10:55 --> 00:11:00

Last incident, last incident before I come to what we should be doing.

00:11:01 --> 00:11:04

Recently, somebody sent me a video about

00:11:05 --> 00:11:15

supposedly purportedly made by somebody who called himself Mufti and he uses the name of one of our great scholars.

00:11:17 --> 00:11:24

If you look at his face and his shape, you know that this guy cannot be a Mufti because from his appearance itself, there are so many

00:11:26 --> 00:11:54

actual rulings of Islam that he is violating that I cannot understand that somebody who call himself a Mufti looks like him or dresses like him. But anyway, he called himself Mufti. And something and I later on, checked, and people told me no, no, you don't know why he is very, he's very famous. And he is very popular in Allahu LA. Anyway. So he made this video criticizing the opinion of somebody else. And this is one of the shoe

00:11:55 --> 00:12:28

in our lives. He did that. And he answered somebody's question about a particular matter. And this guy, the so called Mufti didn't like that answer. So he makes a video where he calls the other person, he takes his name, he calls him by name, he says, uh, what their opinion was, and he is laughing and he's just alleging and he's falling off his chair. And he's mocking him. And he's, you know, doing all kinds of obscene gestures. I mean, it was an absolutely horrible video.

00:12:30 --> 00:12:33

And a classic case of how not to correct

00:12:35 --> 00:12:45

a classic case of exposing the force of people. My brothers and sisters The reason I began with all this is because so that you should know that I'm not

00:12:47 --> 00:12:51

joking or I'm not just, you know, thinking and talking about something which is

00:12:52 --> 00:13:09

fictitious, this is real. This is real. This is our, one of our biggest problems. It's a cancer in our Muslim society. distante the massage this tendency to point fingers to correct a so called correct people.

00:13:11 --> 00:13:17

And, you know, before I go anywhere, look at this beautiful little bit, absolutely. fantastically,

00:13:18 --> 00:13:22

small little thing, which just dropped into my lap.

00:13:24 --> 00:13:25

Isn't it beautiful?

00:13:27 --> 00:13:47

So this, this tankini massage of ours, which really is a cancer in our society, and it's a cancer because the one doing the correction is in the lap of shaitan is sitting in the level of arrogance. He thinks that he is better than the other person. And that believe me is a greased slide into Johanna

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


00:13:50 --> 00:13:58

There's a basic principle in Islam, that the cure must not aggravate the problem, and must not create a worse situation.

00:13:59 --> 00:14:13

And today, really, when I see the way in which people correct one another, I am forced to ask if they really want to correct the individual, or whether the purpose is to humiliate that person and to stroke their own egos.

00:14:15 --> 00:14:19

Today our class seems to have gone from bad to worse to worst.

00:14:21 --> 00:14:40

Please remember, the others do not see our belief. They see our behavior. And when they ask and then they ask cry that behavior to Islam and to rassada salon not to us, they don't say aside or Barker did this they say a Muslim did this a follower of Mohammed Salah Salem did this.

00:14:41 --> 00:14:47

So my submission do is let us make sure that we do not give a bad name to Islam and to Allah He said Allah Harrison

00:14:48 --> 00:14:59

criticizing and finding fault with others seems to be a major occupation of ours today. It is a cancer that divides us and takes away our collective strength.

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

The question is, what must you do, if you see someone making a mistake, and you want to correct it.

00:15:06 --> 00:15:25

So let us see how we correct people and remember that Allah subhanaw taala is watching my submission do is the best way to correct is not to correct at all. It is to make dua and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala, to forgive your brother or sister. But don't engage with them at all. Don't say anything.

00:15:28 --> 00:15:49

Now, if you are in one of those who is really, absolutely dying to correct somebody, and they are if you find that this fault is so enormous and so severe, and so problematic, that you need to correct, right, so first of all, you need to check, what is the nature of this fault? Is it really so huge and so massive?

00:15:51 --> 00:15:52

And if you think that it is,

00:15:54 --> 00:15:58

then I've got five questions that I suggest you ask yourself.

00:15:59 --> 00:16:00

Number one question,

00:16:01 --> 00:16:07

check your own ego, check your own ear, and ask yourself why do you want to correct this person?

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

Are you really interested in the welfare of that person? Or is it about your own ego? You want to show off what you know? Or what you think, you know,

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

not to does that thing needs correction? And is that the right time?

00:16:23 --> 00:16:40

Both are important? He did is that the right time to correct that person. Because sometimes, you say something at the wrong time. And it has a worse effect than it began when I told you the basic principle is the cure must not be worse than the

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

than the problem.

00:16:44 --> 00:16:46

The Cure was not be worse than the problem. So

00:16:47 --> 00:17:10

does that need correction? And is that the right time? number three? Are you the best person to correct that person? Or maybe there is somebody else? Who is a better person, somebody who has a better influence on that individual? Who might be the better person to correct that individual? For thing is the way you want to correct the person.

00:17:11 --> 00:17:41

Is that the best way? So reflect on how you were intending to speak to that person or correct the person ask yourself, Is this the best way to do that? And finally, very importantly, ask yourself in this way of correction, am I protecting the dignity and feelings of that individual? That this is very, very important to ask these questions, because without that, our correction cannot be right.

00:17:42 --> 00:18:03

Now remember what was said, about covering each other's faults. He said, Allah subhanho wa Taala will cover the faults of the one who covers the faults of his brother, and he will expose the one who exposes the faults of his brother, Malika Lally

00:18:04 --> 00:18:34

said that he said I knew people who had a lot of knowledge, but who Allah subhanho wa Taala, humiliated because they exposed others. They use their knowledge to express arrogance and expose others. And he said I knew I know other people who do not have that kind of knowledge. But Allah subhanaw taala has given them huge followings, Allah has given them put their love into the hearts of people. Allah subhanho wa Taala has given them

00:18:36 --> 00:18:40

huge influence, because they cover the force of others.

00:18:41 --> 00:19:03

And he said that if Allah wants to expose you, he will expose you even if you are in the innermost part of your house, in another heavy solar cell, and a person asked that we sell a cell and he came and said, Yes, well, I have the sword and our slave and he makes a lot of mistakes. And I try to you know,

00:19:04 --> 00:19:10

exercise wasn't isn't the best belief about this person and I try to

00:19:12 --> 00:19:34

cover his fault. How much how much gamma Should I do that how many times now Mr. SLM said 70 times each day 70 times cover the force of your brother not correct him, not expose him. Correct the fall. Cover the faults of your brother 70 times each day, every day 70 times.

00:19:36 --> 00:19:54

Even Okay, my daughter Angela said, or somebody else I'm not sure if it was even more one of our classical scholars solo Salahuddin. He said if I see my brother with alcohol dripping from his beard, I will say that somebody poured it on him

00:19:55 --> 00:19:59

and if I see him standing on a hilltop and

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

Calling out an Arab bukoba Allah I am your rub the most Hi, I will say that he's deciding and is

00:20:11 --> 00:20:20

just this, this is not self deception. In the UK, Abraham, Talal is not fooling himself. This is a example of how

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

we as Muslims used to treat one another. And history is witness that we were strong. We were together, we were one.

00:20:34 --> 00:20:39

But when this changed, and when we started to

00:20:40 --> 00:20:47

correct one another, or so called correct one another, really to express our own arrogance and our own egos.

00:20:49 --> 00:20:54

Then life became different. And our situation became different.

00:20:55 --> 00:20:56

And we became different.

00:20:58 --> 00:21:13

I want to end with there are many stories, but I want to end with a couple of them to help you understand has an impact on who you're talking about how to correct I told you some stories about bad correction. Let me tell you some stories about good correction hasn't been a lay of the land.

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

And at that time, he was a young man, maybe a boy or something teenager maybe when

00:21:22 --> 00:21:27

he came to the masjid and he noticed an elderly person doing Judo incorrectly.

00:21:28 --> 00:21:48

Now who is Hassan? Ali has a lot mano, Gabriela en Houma is the son of I live in a Vitaly Allahu and Fatima bint Mohammed Saleh, Salah, and the grandson of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. He is the one who grew up in the arms of rasulillah his lonesome.

00:21:50 --> 00:22:00

Right, he learned his Deen from the best of the best from Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam from Fatima the law of the land who and so on.

00:22:01 --> 00:22:27

So he sees this elderly man making Udo incorrectly. Now making woodwind correctly is a serious matter because without Budo your Salah is invalid. So what does has an Arabic Allah on? What does he do? Does he tell the man what's wrong with you? You're such an old man, you don't even want me to ashamed of yourself. Does he say that? No. What he does is he goes and sits next to the man and he starts making Moodle.

00:22:28 --> 00:23:05

Now this man obviously has an invaluable and who is a well known person. So this man says Oh, Mashallah, this is you know, he thinks to himself, this is walhalla. And I'm just imagining this. So this man probably thought to observe what lies while I'm This is the grand sobre la sala, who's sitting next to me working with Joe. And then he notices and he says, aha, now he's making a little differently from what I did. So here is hasn't been added on the line who who is making gudo and he's making it correctly. And he's doing it in a way where the other man automatically sees it and corrects himself without hasn't even alley or the Allahu Anima saying one single word.

00:23:07 --> 00:23:07


00:23:08 --> 00:23:39

The man's dignity is not, is not attacked. The man is an elderly person. Here is a young boy maybe he's the grandson of the professor, but still is a young boy. And I have an elderly person. The boy does not abused me he does not tell me anything. He does not point a finger. He is making Moodle. He is not even pretending to show him how to make Moodle. He is making auto everybody's making Maxwell do to go into that room and go into the masjid for Salah hasn't been earlier on the line who's making Moodle? The man looks at him and he learns his own lesson.

00:23:40 --> 00:23:41

incident number two,

00:23:42 --> 00:23:44

a young boy comes a teenager comes to us.

00:23:46 --> 00:24:24

And he says to Yasser Allah Salallahu alaihe salam, please permit me to do sinner. Permit me to commit adultery? Now imagine think about this thing. What kind of completely crazy situation is this? Here is this young boy, he comes to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, when he's sitting in the masjid with his companions around him with the Sahaba around him. And obviously that must have consisted of many of the seniors the Sahaba this young boy comes and he he's asking the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to make halaal for him what Allah made Haram

00:24:26 --> 00:24:29

is a jasola please permit me to commit Zina.

00:24:30 --> 00:24:32

Please permit me to commit adultery.

00:24:33 --> 00:24:49

Now imagine the situation of that boy, now here's this young boy he is, you know, his hormones are running riot. He is literally in trouble, right? And he doesn't know what to do with themselves. So he says jasola please commit, allow me to commit Zina.

00:24:50 --> 00:24:59

Nasir was the opposite of the Sahaba who are with him. You know, Michelle is on notice that people who are getting irritated, getting angry and maybe somebody started to get up

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

to, you know, to teach this boy some lessons in other bin manners of how to talk to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam past he just signal to them

00:25:10 --> 00:25:14

stay away, do nothing, say nothing. Then he said to this boy.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:35

The boy came and told him said, The boys are sitting right in front of us realize, Allah. So Allah what kind of people were these? Imagine what kind of opportunities Allah gave them. So here is this boy, he comes and sits in front of assessor says to him, tell me, would you like somebody to commit Zina to commit adultery with your mother?

00:25:36 --> 00:25:38

Those are all i aerosol? Of course not.

00:25:40 --> 00:25:41

11 No, he also

00:25:42 --> 00:25:46

says, Would you like somebody to commit adultery with your sister?

00:25:48 --> 00:25:56

No, of course not. He says, Would you like somebody? If you had a daughter? Would you like somebody to commit adultery with your daughter?

00:25:57 --> 00:25:59

No, of course not.

00:26:00 --> 00:26:09

Nobody's ever said I'm just to him. whoever you want to commit adultery with is somebody's mother. or somebody's daughter, or somebody's sister.

00:26:12 --> 00:26:16

Now the boy learned his lesson. Now, it doesn't end there. The story doesn't end there.

00:26:18 --> 00:26:24

Rasulullah sallallahu then puts his blessed hand on this boy's chest. He puts His blessed hand on his boys chest.

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

And he makes dua for this boy

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


00:26:33 --> 00:26:34


00:26:37 --> 00:26:39

Aloha, aloha Mata here.

00:26:41 --> 00:26:46

He says Oh ALLAH forgive you since Oh Allah purify his heart.

00:26:47 --> 00:26:49

And he says Oh Allah protect his chastity.

00:26:51 --> 00:27:04

That imagine this, the door of the Navy Allah Salam salam wa salam is not restricted in diamond space. It does not mean when he says Oh ALLAH forgive his sins, it does not mean till today and from tomorrow you can punish him It doesn't when he says, Oh Allah,

00:27:05 --> 00:27:52

purify his heart, it doesn't mean until now and after that it can become dirty. No product is just up to today. Not not here after No. For the rest of that boy's life and imagine what is the ultimate destination of that boy, who is going in this world from that moment forward with the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam asking Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive his sins to purify his heart and to protect his chastity till the end of his days that is how he remains and inshallah Muslim. This is the boshirov agenda for this way for doing what are coming and asking a question which is which itself is highly, highly questionable. But Rasulullah saw his sincerity right? He didn't he

00:27:52 --> 00:28:16

didn't see he didn't say what kind of uh, you know, badly brought up boys this that he doesn't even know how to talk to the Prophet. He just comes and asked this completely stupid question. No, he sees this. He sees his sincerity and he makes draft for him. He cures his problem and he makes draft for him for the rest of his life. My last story about Mahara. Remember the name Abu Mohammed

00:28:18 --> 00:29:05

Salim is going after Fatah Maka rasulillah. Salam decided with the light Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala to go to Thai to take his army to dive to subdue the people of life. And if you remember from the Sierra dive was the place where rasulillah salam was brutally assaulted, he was very badly repulsed. He was very, very ill treated badly treated in life, and also lies on a solemn is now going to live with an army of 10,000 soldiers fully equipped and lost around $1 reveal is about this I mean in sort of Toba. This battle is called the Battle of foreign aid. And in a different context, you know, we we learned many lessons from it. But the point I want to make here in my story relates

00:29:05 --> 00:29:48

to one single incident that this this army of 10,000 people, a lot of them if not the majority of them. They were of course the the answer the model ajar and the others, and and many of the, and many or all of the Sahaba who came to Islam First, the Mahajan answer, but the big part of the army was comprised of people who had recently entered Islam in Fatah Makkah, which means that there were some people who had been Muslim maybe for a week or maybe a couple of weeks, and that's it. So they didn't have the the benefit of the tarbiyah or the Sahaba. The the the guidance and the company also lives on a salad

00:29:49 --> 00:29:59

bar. These people were in the army and the army was fully equipped. They had all the weaponry they needed, and they were proceeding. The first day they were they were they camped below

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

When Robert Allen who called the other

00:30:04 --> 00:30:06

there was a group of young

00:30:07 --> 00:30:59

men from koresh who were there who were watching Satan, I believe in Robert Delano, who was Abyssinian and calling the other and these people they started to mock him. They made racist statements. And they were made of made fun of Satan, I believe in a model. Now who was alarming? navall delanco. As we all know, he was one of the most senior one of the most closest, one of the closest companions of resources. lm one of his senior Sahaba one of the more one of the savvy cornella Walloon Amina Mahajan, one of the first to come into Islam. He was a he was, you know, somebody who was very, very significant, both in that army as well as in Islam itself. He was the

00:30:59 --> 00:31:12

one that also relies on a solemn order to call the other from the top of the Kaaba and a vigilance Allah made him climb the Kaaba. He stood on top of the Kaaba and he called the other when Rasulullah saw him and turned Makkah as a father.

00:31:13 --> 00:31:26

The same will be in Ramallah, the Alon who is calling the other. And this group of youngsters of young men, not youngsters, young men from college, made fun of him, mocked him called him all kinds of names,

00:31:27 --> 00:31:29

a lot of racist slurs and so on.

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

Obviously the matter got reported to the whistle salon, and also Salaam summoned them he said, Call them

00:31:37 --> 00:32:08

so now these these people came, maybe there were seven or eight of them, they came and when they came into the presence of rasaan now it looks very serious because they were making fun they were barking said that I believed they were having a big laugh. But now it has become a matter which can become very serious and dangerous for them because this is an army, which is marching rasulillah salam is the commander in chief marking one of the leaders of the army can be interpreted as treason and the punishment for treason can be execution can be dead.

00:32:10 --> 00:32:12

Not a serious not a not a small matter anymore.

00:32:13 --> 00:32:16

So when they are called Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam asked them.

00:32:18 --> 00:32:20

You were making fun of Satan, I believe.

00:32:23 --> 00:32:28

You're making fun of Bilal. They said yes. jasola. What else could this anyway?

00:32:30 --> 00:32:36

as well, as I said, I've said to them, who was Who's your leader, and who was doing the maximum.

00:32:38 --> 00:32:46

They knew there was no way of hiding that. So they pointed to one of them. And that man's name was Abu Maha Dora. And that's why I told you remember the name Abu Bahadur

00:32:48 --> 00:32:50

sola sola Sallam said to him, Come Come here, come forward.

00:32:52 --> 00:33:25

Now imagine if you are in that position, if you are in the position of Ababa, what is going on in your mind? I mean, seriously, he was probably thinking that this is the end. Now Justin is calling me forward. And he's going to now signal to somebody to take out my head, as an example for the rest of the people to say this is what happens to those who are disrespectful to the leaders of Islam. Right. Believe me, I read military histories as an interest. And I read, I read actually

00:33:27 --> 00:33:33

five books about Genghis Khan, and his descendants, grandsons, all the way to Hulu.

00:33:34 --> 00:34:22

I read five or six books about Julius Caesar and Rome and so on. I've read books about Salahuddin it will be about the Crusades. The reason I'm telling you all of this is because in all of those people about whom I read, there is not a single one about who I would have any doubt in a situation like that. If there was one random soldier who was making fun of one of the generals, or one of the leaders, there is they would not even bat an eyelid. They wouldn't even think twice before ordering his execution to be an example to stand as an example for every anyone else who dared to do such a thing in the future. Right? Nobody, none of them would have hesitated to do that.

00:34:24 --> 00:34:36

But what does the Prophet sallallahu Sallam do? He called him he said, Come here, he sits above Adora sitting in front of the solar system says to him, shall I teach you how to do how to call the other?

00:34:37 --> 00:34:39

Shall I teach you how to call the other?

00:34:41 --> 00:34:54

The imagine what is going on in his head? Believe me. There is no way in the world that our madora would have expected that comment or that question from the Navy alehissalaam

00:34:55 --> 00:34:59

did not even refer to the inserra didn't tell him you know, why did you do that and this is wrong.

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

Nothing he didn't mention the incident. He said would you like me to teach you how to call the other?

00:35:06 --> 00:35:29

The reason I'm saying he didn't refer to the incident was because he didn't try to humiliate the guy he didn't try to tell him in in the direct terms or indirect terms. Are you a fool? What's wrong with you? Who brought you up who dragged you up? You know don't have any manners don't have any UCLA you make fun of somebody who's calling to Allah subhanho wa Taala you know what kind of an idiot and he didn't say any. He did not refer to the incident at all.

00:35:31 --> 00:35:38

This is like a normal conversation between two people. He's saying Would you like me to teach you how to call the other

00:35:39 --> 00:35:41

Havas rasa Dr. sola please.

00:35:43 --> 00:35:45

So Rasul Allah is Allah salah and then called the other

00:35:48 --> 00:35:49

he called the Allah

00:35:52 --> 00:35:55

and he said Rama, Dora, repeat after me.

00:35:59 --> 00:36:01

And when the whole isn't finished,

00:36:04 --> 00:36:06

or repeated after we saw salah

00:36:07 --> 00:36:10

and obviously memorized it, I mean, it's not such a complicated thing.

00:36:11 --> 00:36:16

And when the other unfinished other than God called by Muhammad Salallahu alaihe salam.

00:36:18 --> 00:36:22

Our motto is repeating the words of the other after a civilized person.

00:36:23 --> 00:36:25

And when they are then finished.

00:36:27 --> 00:36:37

A motto says to him, Dr. Salah, Salah Salem bla bla bla bla and who is your mo ASEAN? in Makkah, in Medina

00:36:38 --> 00:36:46

belimbing la alano is your mas in in Medina make me You are more than in Makkah.

00:36:48 --> 00:36:51

de la sala Sam says to him, You are my mas in manga

00:36:54 --> 00:37:13

historian say that Obama hora, Allah gave him a long life and every single day of his life, four or five times a day, he would come into the harem, he would make time off of the Kaaba, he would pray to a God of sorrow. And then he would call the other and he did that till the end of his days. Nevertheless, just as I say to you,

00:37:15 --> 00:37:18

here not incidents, I gave you both

00:37:19 --> 00:37:37

how not to correct and how to correct how to cover the faults of people because we weren't allowed to cover our faults on the Day of Judgment. So when you see somebody making mistakes a Allah I have made much bigger mistakes on that are you covered them you did not allow people to see them so people respect me

00:37:38 --> 00:37:42

for luck, I am going to cover this brothers mistake I'm going to cover the system

00:37:43 --> 00:37:48

while I'm make this a witness for me for you to cover my mistakes in this life and in the next one.

00:37:49 --> 00:37:58

And as I told you if there is if the mistake is of a I'm not telling would never correct I'm saying if the mistake is such that you think you really should correct then check your near

00:37:59 --> 00:38:33

diamond place. We have correction Are you the best person and then do it in a way keeping primary importance, the dignity and feelings of that person and then stand in the night and cry tears before Allah subhanho wa Taala asking a lot of animals Allah to make that correction a means of goodness for that individual for yourself. And not a problem for that person and yourself. Believe me if you can't do that if you cannot stand in the right and cry tears before Allah subhanho wa Taala for your brother or sister

00:38:35 --> 00:38:41

then you have no right to correct then it means you aren't interested in them you're interested in pandering to your own ego.

00:38:43 --> 00:38:56

I ask Allah subhanaw taala geology Lalu to give us the clock with join hearts, which make us one which bring us together which keep us on one firm footing until we meet him

00:38:58 --> 00:39:03

on the day when we meet him. Well Salahuddin Abdul Karim Allah Allah He was iVh main

00:39:04 --> 00:39:06

main was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
