So on a con La Habra, cattle, everyone, I pray your well and in the best of health and I pray that Allah azza wa jal has your heart pumping with his Praise, praise be to Allah azza wa jal who gave us many, many more opportunities these days, to recollect his blessings that we've forgotten and his blessings that we may have never noticed before. And all praise be to Allah Who, who when he wants something, he says V and it is, he revives our faith, he freezes the world Subhana Allah to Allah.

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

In the blink of an eye, he puts the most important appointments, on pause,

00:00:40--> 00:00:57

on hold and for us for the believers, we realize that there may have been some more important things that were more deserving of our attention. I hope we are with every brand new day excelling at giving attention to the truly important things in our life. Allah Hammami And may Allah allow us and you to reap the full benefits

00:00:59--> 00:01:30

of this episode. So tonight's versus Unsworth and Lisa, with a bit of a preface to it. When the Muslims came to Medina, they were faced with many, many fears many challenges many insecurities. They had escaped to Mecca, so they weren't sure if they were going to be pursued or not. And there was constantly a fear that the enemy would invade Medina pounce on them at any moment. And on top of that, they were not sure if they would survive the climate of Medina, because of the change of atmosphere many of them became very sick

00:01:32--> 00:01:33

as soon as they came to Medina

00:01:36--> 00:02:19

and so and so then they said, Allah azza wa jal taught the believing community a very important lesson that we could really use right now in the development of our communities in the maturation process of our communities. And that is the lesson of the necessity of Information Management how we manage and circulate information there's so many rumors that Oh, it's no big deal relax or their enemies are upon us. We're gonna die any moment now. So instead of the neasa, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What either Java home Emerald mineral m Nia will hopefully there'll be that they were falling into this big mistake because of the emotional tensions, that anytime any news would come to

00:02:19--> 00:03:04

them, that caused them to fear or causes them to become lacks, they quickly and that will be they quickly broadcast it. I'm sure you already know where I'm going with this. Allah azza wa jal continues to say in the follow in the following phrase in the verse, while our adieu who ihlara suli were Illa Odin m remain home laulima who Lavina sambil una hoomin home, if they would have just referred back to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to verify this news, or to those that are authorized regarding these matters, meaning the experts as part of authorization authorized by virtue of knowledge, they would have been able to validate what is worthy of validating meaning they

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

would have been able to process this news that causes them this emotional rollercoaster, real high and real low and they would have found those able to process this information, we need to do a far better job of only taking our information, number one from the infallible source Allah and His messenger. And number two, from those experts, meaning those specialized in every particular field, this is huge. I mean, you may think it's no big deal. We sometimes think it's no big deal. I'm just hitting share, I'm just sharing news here, news there, you know, that those that are authorized, can best process it. It's so true, like the availability of information on the internet, and on social

00:03:48--> 00:04:30

media as a part of the internet. Nobody can filter it except experts. The availability of so much information puts us under the presumption that we know but it's actually more confusing now to know things than ever. Only someone specialized has the proper filters to read these things. So don't trust yourself to read and validate and circulate. You may think it's harmless, but you're actually lying. You may actually find yourself May Allah forbid, coined in Allah eyes as a liar. You don't think so? But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this, he said he has been very immune and shadowy. And you had the subsequently miasma. It is enough of a lie for a person for them simply to

00:04:30--> 00:05:00

relay to convey everything they hear the things that they hear, you can say no, but I'm smart, I can see you know, a red flag from Not unless you are of those that are audience members, those authorized on this science on this matter, on this circumstance, you will not be able to and you should be frightened about this, that not just Are you lying, you are in our context of Corona you are doubling your sin or tripling or as many

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

people heard it, it gets multiplied and compounded because you're adding fear to the hearts of the people. Like a little bit of news on top of a little bit of news, we are creating hysteria sometimes on the aggregate and we belittle this. And this is a huge deal to admit fear, especially upon the heart of a Muslim. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam strictly forbade this admitting fear upon a Muslim. You know, I was reading once in a matter of fitclick that an Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah, they were asking him, is it permissible to rent my shop, like a store, rent my shop to a non Muslim though they might sell wine in it? And you know, the management said, he said, Even I own I believe

00:05:39--> 00:06:13

now owned by him a whole lot. One of the earlier great scholars used to only rent to non Muslims because he was afraid of Allah asking him why he struck fear in the heart of a Muslim because it's worse Of course, compounded with a Muslim on the day that he collects his rent. Can you imagine he was so afraid those his right to collect the rent that the day he goes to collect rent from his tenants, he would strike fear in the hearts of a Muslim. And email Buhari, Latino law one time a man owed him money as well. And they told him should we speak to the police? This guy's like avoiding you left and right. He said, No, no, forget it. Because of the police show up at his door. He's

00:06:13--> 00:06:50

going to be terrorized by that. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forbid terrorizing a Muslim. This is this is their right. So what gives us the right to continue circulating this news when we are not authorized qualified to verify it. If it is from an official source and you're positive, it's from an official source, not just a screenshot or otherwise, fine. from the CDC, I don't know the World Health Organization or something. Perhaps maybe, but really minimize these things. I spoke a little bit about you know, you being careful of how much you take in but also be careful of how much you broadcast. It is really huge. You know, there's one high detail and with it

00:06:50--> 00:07:07

tonight, very scary Hadith, where the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I saw certain people being punished in their graves by having their mouths ripped all the way open on both sides. And when he asked you to breathe and myka you know, la Hema Salaam Who are these people?

00:07:08--> 00:07:48

He said, this is a man that leaves his home in the morning, and spits a lie or like, you know, utters a lie for Tableau will fly and it reaches the farthest horizons. I cannot imagine any scenario where that is literally applicable, like our times with the click of a button with just one share. A person just spreads these unconfirmed reports adds to the fear and the anxiety and the hysteria and becomes the person that fills the you know the horizons with their lies. May Allah not make us have them. Listen, we will not be able to save people's lives. People are already reading news day in and day out about this virus. You cannot save anyone's life. Even if you saved their

00:07:48--> 00:07:49

life from Corona.

00:07:50--> 00:08:27

You will not be able to but they're still gonna die at 60 years old or 70 years old or 80 years old, right or wrong. So save your own faith by abiding by the boundaries of Allah azza wa jal and then you will find out that in the process, you have made everyone's life that much better as well. May Allah azza wa jal help us and you continue to get nearer in our abidance of the guidance of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and forgive me for the dark video. I guess in tone and in in daylight, I wanted to squeeze this reminder in so that I saw you for another night. A lot. So agenda benefit us and deal with what I've said, and not make us the last of benefits from my words alone. I

00:08:27--> 00:08:29

mean, Good evening, everybody said I want to come
