you sleep? Come home while you're here? lectins Oh, no, the comb. Why may he
have auto Sudha
jefa who's another?
Another thing that's local Hadith Kitab Allah.
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was shot to her death in Bader.
Allah Akula gonna let him for now to learn that my dear respected beloved brothers and sisters, I ask Allah azza wa jal who gathered doesn't dismiss it together. Asuma como se de mousseline Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mean urbanite? I mean
Allah subhanho wa Taala told us in the Quran that the shaitan is our enemy, so treat him as one for who who adore, treat him as your enemy.
And when the shaitan wants to seduce me or to tempt me to do haram, he does not come and say kill, steal, drink alcohol, commit adultery. No, he comes in baby steps.
That's why Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran did not tell us do not follow the shaitan he said yeah, you Hala Dena M and let me tell you how to RT shaytaan four times in the Quran. Do not follow the footsteps of the shaitan your Allah what happens if you do when a year Tevet what what is shaytaan for in Monroeville fascia you will Monken and whosoever follows the footsteps of the shaitan the shaitan commands them to fall into indecency and all kinds of evil
now, one of the main methods that the shaytaan ruin
our life destroy our marriages corrupt our A Baghdad our acts of worship is through the eyes through vision.
This why Allah subhanahu wata Allah told us in the Quran in surah to not call
me in tune in other saw him. Well yeah, furthermore, for whom there Lika Escala, whom in namaha, hobby Bhima is now on, tell the believing men to lower their gaze and protect their private private parts that is pure for them. And Allah
is aware of all that you do. In this area. There's an order and there's a reward. And then there is a warning, the order lower your gaze, the reward that is pure for you. And there's a warning. Be careful. Allah is watching everything that you are doing. Some people might say chef, this is not for me.
This is for the people who do a lot of sins. This is for the one after clean for the hypocrites. This is for the non Muslims habibi. Let me replay the call a little more meaning in the speech here is to the believing men
to the believing men
Anytime you see an area that starts with call, it means yeah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, tell the humanity tell them the believers tell so and so tell mankind here call to Lily mode meaning tell the believing men to lower their gaze.
So it's an order from Allah subhanho wa taala.
And if you notice the protecting the private parts came after lowering the gaze. Why? Because looking vision is the main door, the main gateway
to fortification, to adultery to Zina.
So Allah ordered us to lower your gaze, and then protect your private parts. When you let your eyes
roam around looking at the chance of women, you are planting in your heart, thorns of loss, and regret.
Jabra not dilla Radi Allahu Allah, he said.
I asked Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam about the accidental look
he commanded me
to turn away, turn your gaze away. What does that mean? It means just like when Ali got an advice from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and also loss SLM told him Yeah, Lee
do not follow a glance by another do not follow a glance by another. The first one is forgiven, but the second is not. I'm walking on the street.
I'm walking in the supermarket and all of a sudden alive shaitan half naked pups in front of me that look that I saw that that is not counted. If I look again,
then the counter start calculating. The first look accidental. I am watching a lecture
on YouTube, all of a sudden on the side where very tempting to click on pictures that are not appropriate.
That first look okay, the more the second then becomes very, very dangerous. And keep in mind my brothers and sisters Subhanallah the hadith is in Muslim and BaKari. Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us that the i's commit for notification they commit Zina how we are a small Allah by looking
when I Nan, let's Nyan
was in a line another the Zener of the eye is by looking by staring at the opposite gender, the Sahaba and the tabby in
and our righteous predecessors they gave us they gave us an A great example on lowering the gays Subhanallah you know what I was thinking when I was preparing? I said they were so cautious about looking at haram and there was no social media. If one of them is here now what would they say? What would they see?
How hard I want you to imagine how hard it was for a Sahabi to see something haram while everyone is in a job and Jill Babb and niqab and and still they were so worried. Now, at the click of a button. All the Haram is on your fingertips Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. May Allah protect us and protect our children. I mean Alameen Subhanallah, one of the greatest taboo in his name is Robbie Ibn Hussain Roby being with him was a very good looking man. And at the same time, very righteous man. One time I gave a whole food but just about him. When, when one of the Sahaba said, If Rasulillah Salam looked at you, he would love you, as a hobby told him to appear anyway. And when he used to walk on
the street, he's always lowering his gaze.
when he when he sees a woman, he lowers his gaze, and he hears the woman saying, We love him in Alabama.
They think that he's blind, so they seek refuge with Allah from blindness.
He was always lowering his gaze to the level that people thought he's blind. And even Mossad, his best friend, he's to come and knock at the door. The jatiya The servant opens the door.
And when she went back to the master and said, Who's by the door, she said, You're blind friend, blind friend. I don't have a blind friend.
He was always lowering his gaze, to the level that she thought that he's blind. And he's very close friend of his for 20 years, she thought he was blind.
And now we walk Subhan Allah,
and our gaze wandering left and right and up and down and staring. May Allah protect us, one of the most important causes of problems in many houses, is failing to lower our gaze.
When the husband releases his gaze,
it can comparison will seep into his heart.
He start comparing what he's seeing to his wife.
And that will definitely create a huge gap
and resentment from the husband to his wife. Similarly, one of the greatest reason
for the delay of our youth, which I'm happy that a lot of them are here today, one of the delay of marriage is
with all the Instagram and Tiktok, and all these things, people are watching day and night.
They have an image
of a person that they want to get married to, and this is for boys and girls, that usually does not exist. And that's why they keep waiting and waiting and waiting looking for that guy that they saw. Or that girl that they saw on Instagram. This is the one that they want to marry. And they keep looking and waiting and waiting and waiting. And this is all fake,
beauty, deceptive beauty, that does not exist most of the time. So they delay their marriage, and they keep delaying their marriage. And then they fall into step by step the shaitan. Like I said in the beginning, he doesn't tell him go and commit adultery, know, first, a look. Then a smile. Then a text with a smiley face.
Then a meeting, then holding hands, then coffee at Starbucks. Then Allahu Allah, step by step. That's why Allah subhanho wa Taala What did he say? Let the caribou Zina
don't even think of coming to anything close
to Xena to adultery.
For you, what are some of the means that will help me and help my brothers and sisters to lower their case?
Number one, first and foremost, knowing that Allah is watching,
knowing that Allah His name is Al Bashir, his name is Al rocky but the old seeing the old watching
Allah subhanaw taala is watching me
that immediately instantly should make me lower my gays. Allah said in the Quran. Yeah, Allah Maha in Italian when I took the pseudo Allah knows what the fraud of the eye and what the hearts conceal.
Allah knows the fraud of the eye and what the hearts conceal.
Sometimes you get a young man, his parents are out of the house. He's very happy alone in the room, he puts the laptop and he prepares something haram he wants to watch.
And as he's watching, he hears a noise by the door.
He immediately panic turn off everything
of fear of someone is watching or someone is coming is worst than committing the sin itself. Because you fear someone other than Allah.
Is the food I mean a nurse, whether you're stuffing I mean Allah will who are now they fear a mankind they fear people and they do not fear Allah even though Allah with his knowledge is with them. So number one, knowing that Allah subhanaw taala is watching. Second remembering
the angels that are recording every action, Allah subhanho wa Taala said we're in LA
Mahaffey Lin Kieron and Kathy being ya allah Munna Mata file on verily over you there are appointed angels, honorable writing everything knowing what you're doing. How do you feel when the angels are sitting right there and you are staring at the Haram Allahu Akbar and every lock, every lock is recorded. Every lock is recorded and not only recorded Allah subhanho wa Taala said in the summer will bizarro world
couldn't know eeka Khanna and houmous Hola, surah. Allah said sama hearing, definitely hearing, vision, the heart all of that you will be questioned about Jaquan This is not a joke. This is a very serious matter, we will be questioned about every single look and why we did not lower our gaze.
Third incentive to lower our gaze is to remember that lowering the gaze by itself is a form of worship. Allah said in the ayah we recited call me Nina Yeah, what do you mean I'm sorry, him tell the believing men to lower their gaze. So when I lower my gaze, I am obeying Allah subhanho wa taala. It's an act of worship
Knowing that vision is one of the greatest blessings that Allah bestowed upon us. And one of the ways to be grateful to any blessing is to use it for the service of Allah.
You want to be grateful for your wealth, you use that wealth to help the poor, you sebelah you want to be grateful for your eyes, you use those eyes, to look at Halal only. And similarly for every single nema. So when I am not using these eyes, to obey Allah and I'm using them in the disobedience of Allah, I am in grave danger Subhan Allah I want you to imagine my brothers and sisters
Allah took our sight away
close your eyes for 1015 seconds you can't even wait you want to open them?
If Allah took your vision away you can't go to school you cannot drive you cannot work you cannot see your wife and mother and children anymore.
What would you do? Your Allah Ya Allah bring me my vision back and I promise you your Allah I will not look at any haram your Allah bring it back. Right?
Why don't we give when we are given? Why do we wait? Why do we have to wait for something to be taken away for us to give? Why don't I obey Allah when the vision is still there? Why do I have to wait for something bad evil to happen in order to obey Allah
my brothers and sisters
one of the means is to strive. Alessia I tried, it's not working. Try harder.
When Allah sees in your heart that you are sincere about lowering your gaze, Allah will help you strive in lowering your gaze and be patient. Allah said last is what a clan Caboose will Latina Jaha do fina, then the non subordinate, whosoever strive for my cause, and that goes could be being consistent on solid wedding day job, fasting whatever that is, whoever is striving for my cause. I will make a way for them. Allah azza wa jal, the Kadir and remember Subhanallah this beautiful hikma word of wisdom, he said, A Sabra Allah Rob dill Bassam Aysel Mina sobre Allah LM ma la Akbar being patient on lowering the gaze is much easier than being patient of the damage that
opening on wandering your gaze can lead to
he got addicted. He acted upon it. Maybe something haram happened somebody got pregnant. Look at the danger it started all the all started with one look.
With one look a poisoned arrow.
As simple as avoid places Yeah, if you were the Hara.
is widely spread. Don't tell me I want to go to the beach and I'm going to lower my gaze doesn't work.
That doesn't work. People we are living in a society that when the temperature go up, the clothes go down from the top and up from the bottom. And they have a slogan, if you got it and even if you don't get it, flaunt it, show it. This is where we living. So it makes it even harder. You look left you see haram, you look right you see a magazine you look at, there's no way to look Subhan Allah, we are surrounded by haram, surrounded, bombarded by haram. Avoid places where the Haram is prevalent. Seven
specifically for my single brothers.
They always say
Allah Sheikh it's very hard to lower your gaze in this society that we are living in, at school at work at this at that everywhere we go.
the advice and the solution is not from me, from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Number one, get married.
And this is an advice for the parents stop delaying your children's marriage for reasons that you're going to regret. You're going to regret.
Not so much. I seldom said buzzer Wah some Lilford urge when someone gets married, it helps them use the same word lower their gaze and protect the private parts. Your salah I cannot afford to get married What should I do? First?
Yeah, when fast, fast, this is a prescription from the doctor of the ummah. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you cannot get married and you want to lower your health, lower your gaze and not fall into haram. He said fast. My young tikanga he does not speak from his desire. So this prescription came from Allah fast. When we used to be in college, the brothers used to fast every other day to protect themselves if you are serious about protecting yourself from falling into haram follow the advice of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
it will help me lower my gaze knowing that the person who lower his gaze
will be prevented from the Hellfire Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said three eyes will never see the Hellfire one of them and I that lowered it gaze from what Allah has forbidden polka dot stuck for Allah stuck through in the whole
salatu salam ala him and learn to be about the sisters listening to the
football they said Subhanallah what was not for me today the idea right after it
we'll call little me naughty young dude name in absolve him
and tell the believing woman to lower their gaze and protect their private parts. My sister, my beloved dear sister, lend me your ears. This is a message from Allah to you. Don't be upset from the chef or from the imam or from the khateeb listen carefully call Yamaha Mattel who a little more minute if you consider yourself my sister as believing woman become all ears. A little more minute. Yes Your Allah.
I am a believing woman. Order me. Lower your gaze.
Protect your private parts.
wear the hijab, same idea to the level that will protect your cover your chest area.
Same ILA that told us to lower the gaze told us to wear the hijab. What else? Do not show your adornment? Your Zina except to your husband's to your father's to the fathers of your children, to your nephews and Allah named who are the people whom the woman is allowed to take over hijab in front of.
So these are orders from Allah and my sister. We get upset from the team he talks about his cup of tea, my dear beloved sister, if we do not tell you about that job here, who's going to tell you about the hijab see and
or Fox News?
If we do not tell you about their job, you should be upset with us. Because this is an order from Allah subhanho wa Taala and at the end, Allah subhanaw taala and did this
As by saying, what to do in Allahu Jamia, maybe I am behind I have not worn the hijab maybe I was not or I'm not I'm wearing a hijab that's not appropriate. Allah and the day and saying to Allah He Jamia
repent to Allah, all of you au ha. Me know
because you always want to hear repent we hear we think major sinners No no no we're to Allah He Jamia Are you mean en la la come to flee hon. Oh, who you believe written to Allah, all of you. So you can be successful in the dunya and akhira. And finally,
my brothers and sisters are a three way three words Hadith
that I want to every time your son goes to college or every time you want to. Your son tells you give me an advice. Tell him for the Allah.
Allah, it's an amazing prophetic advice.
protect the rights of Allah.
Allah will protect you.
Tell your son, tell your daughter.
Anytime you want to commit to send the member, f of Allah he IFAK stay away from what Allah has prohibited Allah Who will protect you. How does that relate to our topic?
Do not look at other woman. Allah will protect your woman from being looked at.
Who likes which man really man likes women to stare at his wife or at his daughter. You don't want anybody to stare at your wife or your daughter or your mother or your sister. Do not stare at other people's Wife, Daughters and sisters. Simple. Allah will protect your woman because you protected yourself from looking at other woman Allama for Linda druvan Our slough NFE Emelina with a bit of damage on Sir Malcolm will Catherine Allah morphic Nilima Taheebo Watauga Robinette hablan I mean, as you as you know, was already yet in Aqaba time.
