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

We

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

all will have a shirt on the rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah about

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

Allah subhanaw taala surgeon so to

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

the eye which is decided as part of the hotbar

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

Yeah, you have livina Armand de la la COVID roku colon sadita usually Hello, and welcome.

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

Welcome my UT la hora Sula, who

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

will take the first ad today. Allah subhanaw taala said yeah you Allah Xena Amano, taco La, la cola Colin sadita.

00:00:41--> 00:00:57

Allah does it. We will believe fear Allah have Taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And speak the truth. A colo. Colin said either and speak the truth. I want to remind myself and you that the importance of speaking the truth.

00:00:59--> 00:01:11

Now, when I say the importance of speaking the truth, I think this is something which is supposed to be obvious to any person with half a brain. But the issue is not whether

00:01:12--> 00:01:15

we agree, cognitively

00:01:16--> 00:01:29

with the admonition to speak the truth, everyone, even the worst liars in the world will agree that it's a good thing to speak the truth. The issue is do you actually speak the truth or not?

00:01:30--> 00:01:55

And that's the reason why Allah subhanaw taala preceded kulu coincided with it a lot. Because you can only speak the truth if you fear Allah subhanaw taala we can only speak the truth if we fear Allah subhanaw taala more than we fear anyone else. We can only speak the truth if we remember the meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala when we die

00:01:57--> 00:02:44

Otherwise, the fear of the people of the world, or the misplaced love of the people of the world can and does prevent us from speaking the truth. That's the reason why I lost Varasano. salasar. I'm in the famous head, he said, that the pinnacle of faith is to speak the truth before the tyrant. Because obviously in a state of fear, there are two situations where a person is compelled, or feels compelled to tell a lie. The first situation is a situation of fear, when he fears the consequences of speaking the truth, the consequences of speaking the truth. And against me, I love forgive us. I don't think any of us in it isn't, isn't an actual or has ever been an actual situation where if

00:02:44--> 00:03:22

they speak the truth, they would lose their life. How many of us have actually been in a situation where if we had spoken the truth, at that point in time, somebody would have chopped off our head or would have shot us in the head or something? Nothing. We're not we are not even faced with the kind of tests that have added vitamins I had image Maine and the son of a salad we're faced with, where if they did not speak the if they spoke the truth, they would have been tortured, and they would have been killed. And this did happen to many of them because they still spoke the truth. And they were taught as a result of which they were tortured. It had been developed hanifa de la la, you'd

00:03:22--> 00:04:03

have on demand mama didn't Humberto de la la la. And it happened to many of us have and it happened to Mario's Allah was Allah. Allah mentioned in two of the Imam of Islam. The point is that speaking the truth in the face of the tyrant is something is a pinnacle of faith by Allah subhanaw taala does not even put us in that situation. We none of us will holla today. I don't think I certainly it hasn't happened to me. And I don't think it has happened to me to most of us that we were ever in a situation where speaking the truth would have led to death or speaking the truth would have loved to lead to imprisonment or to torture. But even if that were the case, we still have situations where

00:04:03--> 00:04:43

our salaf have sent have established an example for us, where even in such a situation they spoke the truth. But the point I'm making here is that in order to be able to speak the truth, it's absolutely critical for us to be to have Taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala a person who is not a turkey cannot speak the truth and therefore a person who is a liar is not a Motoki, this is a a self assessment for us. If you lie, then you have then you do not have to when Allah subhanaw taala lying is a sign of the weakness of the lack of human lying, of course is haram. And it's a sign of the weakness of human. It's a sign of the of lack of taqwa in the person. So the first reason why we we

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

tell lies and we don't speak the truth is because we fear the consequences. And as I said, in our cases, the consequences are miniscule without ridiculous consequences for most of us the consequences, the fear of becoming unpopular in society. That is why we know for instance,

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

Example, that ostentatious weddings and and is rough that is done in the name of weddings and so on is haram. Allah subhanaw taala called the people who do is rough, the brothers of shaitan in Alba de Nakano, ihana Sha, Allah said, the people who do is rough are truly the brothers of shaitan. But despite that, we will not speak the truth, we will continue to participate in those activities. And because we fear that we will become unpopular with those people, if you simply sit down and write down and say, What is the consequence of actually being popular with them? What benefit has it brought you and what will be the possible consequence of becoming unpopular with them? What is the

00:05:44--> 00:06:30

harm that you anticipate you will laugh at yourself in the face, but you will not do that you will continue to support those activities. We continue to support non Muslim practices and non Muslim behavior, in our marriages, and in our birth and death ceremonies and so on so forth, all of which are non Muslim. So the point of the point I'm making is that the reason why we don't speak the truth is because we share the consequences from people more than we fear the displeasure and anger of Allah subhanaw taala number two reason we don't speak the truth is because of our misplaced love for people, we we have two standards. May Allah subhanaw taala Forgive us, inshallah, we'll talk about

00:06:30--> 00:07:10

this tomorrow because we don't want to make the reminder to wrong, but let us leave it at this today. To say that, to speak the truth Allah subhanaw taala has ordered us to speak the truth. And in order to be able to speak the truth. We must have Taqwa of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Whether we speak the truth or not is a measure of our taqwa that is the meter by which we can judge our taqwa number point number one, number two. And point number three is that we generally do not speak the truth, because they fear consequences from this world. And we need to really examine those consequences and ask ourselves, is that consequence worse than facing Allah subhanho wa Taala anger

00:07:10--> 00:07:47

on the day of judgment? Ask Allah subhanaw taala to make this easy for us to speak the truth always, and never to support things which anger Allah Subhana Allah, never to fear people more than we fear Allah subhanho wa Taala never to participate in activities which have been prohibited by Allah subhanaw taala no matter who it displeases because we unless panatela ordered us Yeah, well as in Armando taco La, la kulu colons de de de colo hermo salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato masala highlanda.
