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

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Allah Allah He also here Jermaine, we begin the name of Allah All Praise and Glory be to Allah and mais find his peace and blessings be upon His messenger Muhammad and his family and his companions and all those who adhere to his guidance.

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

We ask Allah to teach us that which benefits us and benefit us with that which he teaches us and to increase us and knowledge

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

and to better our adherence and our practice of our knowledge and to refine our character or adapt our cloud and purify our hearts

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

Allahumma Amin, so we welcome everyone back to the manners of the self, the manners of the early Muslims, especially in terms of their dealings with one another

00:01:01--> 00:01:20

in their societies, their community members, their families and otherwise. And the overarching theme for this evening set of anecdotes, few different sections we'll try to read together in sha Allah, as we usually do, is some of the

00:01:23--> 00:01:30

components that build for us, a pure society or a pure community.

00:01:33--> 00:01:43

And so this first section, the author, have you the whole law, or Rahima, higher normally eaten, he says, you'll be doing that and Fusa whom and Manuel de to him.

00:01:45--> 00:02:04

So they used to distance themselves from suspicious activity, places where it would be more likely that someone suspect that they do something wrong, so they wouldn't just avoid doing wrong, they would avoid being perceived as doing wrong.

00:02:06--> 00:02:08

And why would they do this?

00:02:10--> 00:02:40

A major reason why is out of consideration for the people. Right? That number one, they may not, you know fall into thinking I'm doing wrongs to doing it themselves, or at the very least think I'm doing wrong and so accuse me of doing such right. And they got this from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself in the well known Hadith that the author begins with here that how do you think and even in her saying are the Allahu Anhu Ma? He narrates.

00:02:42--> 00:02:46

And this is a well known Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim and there's so many benefits but we will

00:02:48--> 00:03:00

we will cite it for this particular purpose tonight. Sisters if you're with us, please be with us. Otherwise, please try to keep the noise levels down for those sisters that are trying to be with us.

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

Sisters just like a low Clara.

00:03:07--> 00:03:27

So in this hadith This is known as the famous hadith of Sophia, Sophia bintray or the Allahu Anhu. May Allah be pleased with her that she wants visited the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and spend some time with him one night, while he was in Africa if he was sort of dedicating himself to the masjid not leaving it

00:03:28--> 00:03:36

for a period of devotion between him and Allah subhanho wa Taala and so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

sister this is not going to work.

00:03:42--> 00:03:43

Love for Hola Hola. Hola. Como

00:03:46--> 00:03:47

is like a low Hadron.

00:03:50--> 00:04:01

There's an entire social hall for those I want to speak outside. There's very comfortable also couches in the lobby. And so let's try to maintain the other specially when the subject of the night is Adam Baraka Alfie Kohn.

00:04:05--> 00:04:07

So he,

00:04:08--> 00:04:23

and there is fifth behind this of course, he stepped out of his iati calf because it is justified to do so to walk his wife home. So as he was taking her home in the middle of the night in the dark, two men from the answer,

00:04:25--> 00:04:47

saw the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and Sophia. For Sri. The narrator says they picked up their pace they tried to like rush out of there. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, Allah this likoma Hey, you to slow down, nothing to Rashi there's nothing happening here right like slow down. There's no nothing awkward taking place.

00:04:49--> 00:05:00

In the house of a Ubuntu Hey, this is Sofia, Ubuntu II meaning this is my wife. He identified her for the men. And so they said Subhan Allah rasool Allah like bye

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

No, no, no, we didn't think anything we would never think anything of you.

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

Oh messenger of Allah. And so he said to them sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in a shavasana Yejide mean and in Sani Majora them that shaytaan flows through the bloodstream of the human being throws through the pathways of your blood flows through your veins, right? We're in the slushy to any up could differ for your colo B coma Sharon Alcala che and and I fear that shaytaan would sort of hurl something inside your hearts or some evil inside your hearts the narrator is unsure of the wording he uses a che energon some evil or something in your heart.

00:05:44--> 00:05:46

So this is the Hadith

00:05:47--> 00:06:22

the author of this book he gathers so many different reflections from Allah Zarahemla Allah and I know we added Mahajan and others about benefits from this hadith. First he cites salmonella we are Hema hola who is citing Azalia Rahim Allah Allah who said, look at how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was protective of the deen of these two men. He didn't want anything to develop in their minds. And so he protected them and look at how he's saying he was protective of his ummah

00:06:24--> 00:06:27

after this incident, protective of this Oma.

00:06:31--> 00:06:36

And so he taught them the way to shut the door on

00:06:37--> 00:07:14

easy accusations. Then he says, so that no scuff God fearing scholar comes along one day and says people will never think bad of me. People will never interpret my behaviors in a negative way. He says that will be a form of conceit, because he is teaching us here sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the most God fearing person, the most pious person, the Prophet himself, not everyone will look at him with the same eyes. Some people look at him approvingly. And some people may look at him disapprovingly. He's sort of accounting for the possibility

00:07:15--> 00:07:21

and as you will see here later, not necessarily as these two men have done that, but that it could happen

00:07:24--> 00:08:10

and then a no we have a hammer Allah says there are many benefits in this hadith of them is, it illustrates how concerned and protective he was sallallahu alayhi wasallam over his OMA and he was looking out for their interests and protecting their hearts and their their limbs, their sort of their bodies, meaning here their tongues. He says that Allah told us that he is ever concerned with the affairs of the believers, he was always anxious to protect the believers from from stumbling. He said, and so he feared that the shaitan cast something in their heart, and they get destroyed, because obviously suspecting something he says, of the prophets of Allah is cough would remove you

00:08:10--> 00:08:20

from Islam altogether by each man. All scholars agree on this, he says. And since the major sins are impossible for the for the

00:08:21--> 00:08:27

prophets to commit prophets and commit major sins, so how could he sort of how could this be anything

00:08:29--> 00:08:30

like that?

00:08:31--> 00:08:56

And then it was also reported that Abner Aina Rahim Allah said to him, I'm a chef every one day and I'm a chef and he was sitting in the gathering of entertainers of marinas teaching, and then the crowd is if I'm a chef, right? So so she had an arena. So if you had an arena, asks the man in the crowd because it's a chef and we can't let the opportunity go, he asked the chef hurry. What is to be understood from this hadith, this hadith of Sophia?

00:08:59--> 00:09:41

And so he says in canel, como Tamil Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cannot be told Mati Hema Yalgoo foreign if they would have suspected anything he would have, they would have become disbelievers by doing that they would have left Islam by doing that. He goes and so what's what's really happening here that's not the point. It would never be imagined that they were that he said, Well, I can then be yours Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam and Deborah min Bader, who, for call in Khun tomb, Hakka follow Hakka. He was really speaking through this incident, to the incidents that will occur to others after this right he's teaching the OMA through this incident. That was the intended meaning.

00:09:42--> 00:10:00

He's saying clarify to others, so that you are not suspected of committing evil. Not that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam could ever be suspected to do evil, since he is Amina Elahi oddly, since he is the one whose integrity Allah has declared he's the trustworthy of God

00:10:00--> 00:10:09

On Earth, sal Allahu Allahu wa sallam. And so now that this is imaginable, and so if naraina praised him and thanked him and prayed for him at the end of this anecdote,

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

and that even the Hotjar Rahim Allah mentioned this as well. And he said,

00:10:16--> 00:10:23

the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam clearly was not saying that these two men were having ill assumptions of him.

00:10:24--> 00:10:30

But he was saying that shaytaan flows through us. So that could be the case.

00:10:31--> 00:10:52

This is the nature of human beings. In other words, you're not thinking something bad now? What do you never know, one day, the thought can develop further and further, and then you start thinking it. So he's teaching us how to never get to that state. Not to say that they are currently in that evil state of suspecting Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:10:59--> 00:11:20

And he also said, or other scholars have also mentioned, and said that this is especially the case when it comes to the scholars and those who are considered role models for the community. He says, Listen, it is impermissible for them to do something that would cause others

00:11:22--> 00:11:23

to suspect evil of them.

00:11:24--> 00:11:25

He says,

00:11:26--> 00:11:35

and even if it is an entirely fine act, because that would stop people from benefiting from them.

00:11:36--> 00:11:41

And that is why they are not allowed to do it. Right? So

00:11:43--> 00:11:45

am I technically allowed

00:11:46--> 00:11:56

to drink out of a bottle inside of a brown paper bag as shiksha? Nelly? Am I allowed to do that? It's Islamically permissible it is, but I'm allowed to do it. Why?

00:11:58--> 00:12:20

As really low hanging fruit, for the accusation, right? And so it casts this, you know, aspersion around me and cast this, you know, like, uncertainty around, I would not be allowed to do that. Because I or whoever's in the chair, right, represent the religion of Allah and so I have to take extra precaution.

00:12:21--> 00:12:29

Or else people will be disinterested or distrusting to take their religion of Allah from me. That's why chefs don't have friends.

00:12:31--> 00:12:47

Anyway, and then he continues to say this is all in favor that he's always gonna have to steal. He says why I'm barely Catholic. The scholars also said little hacky me, and you be in my home, it is also necessary for the ruler, the decision maker the government.

00:12:48--> 00:13:22

Can I say the board of the masjid in addition to the chef, so I'm not here alone. He says a little hacky me and you begin in my home for the ruler to clarify to his subjects. I like a wedge. Wedge will help them either can have coffee and nephew handed to him. That to explain to people you know, we called nowadays just transparency, right? explain to people matters that could be hidden, to lessen the likelihood of accusation. Like, here's where your money went, this is the financial report. We get this all from what how do you suffer? Yeah, this is what the scholars extrapolated of, this is necessary.

00:13:24--> 00:13:38

He says and here and here, this makes it clear to us the mistake of those who paint themselves in a negative light. Sometimes he will do this with the good intention. They'll paint themselves in a negative light

00:13:39--> 00:14:18

because he's just trying to humble himself. Right? You You don't brag of your good right at the same time, don't sit there and act like you're a horrible person, just so people won't praise you. But because that will promote impurity and horrible behavior in society. Makes sense? This is the idea. You know, the scholars even said like, even with children, even with you know your clients in Dawa you can help people submit to Allah's deen and the purity of Allah's Deen by explaining to them the the rationale sometimes what is you know, the point here.

00:14:19--> 00:14:59

So, if we're in an age of skepticism, for instance, that suspect dean of being too hard. Maybe you want to talk about like we did today in the whole, the rationale of the Dean actually not being that hard. If someone were struggling to understand why he can't get an exception to this haram relationship rule. You know, the guy who came to the Prophet SAW Salem and said to me, I rasool Allah permit for me to commit Zina. He knows the rule. But how did he help himself Allah Allah who is of except the rule submit to the rule, he said he helped him by rationalizing for him showing him the logic, right? That this rule isn't just like an exercise of power, I would have Allah right

00:15:00--> 00:15:31

But would you like it for your mom? Would you like it for your sister? Meaning he's helping him imagine society? Based on these exceptions, it would be horrible. Wouldn't it be horrible, right? And so the idea of helping people get past their reluctance or their sort of negative interpretation or how they process a certain rule or judgment, even your children, your children don't have the right to question your authority, and sort of like protest every time you make a decision, but you can help them accept your decisions by usually explaining to them the logic of the decision.

00:15:32--> 00:15:44

Drink milk, because it's good for your bones. Not just because I said so. That sort of thing. It helps sort of shatter this suspicion that you're just a tyrant. You're just sort of like, you know,

00:15:46--> 00:15:46

a bully

00:15:48--> 00:15:59

or bla bla bla bla and we're getting back to the subject. He said, Men Men are calm and EFSA who mahkamah to Hamid Fela, Fela, alumina Manasseh of wannabe

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

whomever places themselves in a situation where they would be suspected entire likely to be suspected, then he should only blame himself

00:16:13--> 00:16:26

or he should not blame those who suspect him. That doesn't mean they're okay for suspecting him. That means you just lost the right to blame them. Anyone else can blame them with you because you contributed to it? Yes.

00:16:31--> 00:16:42

And as the heavy Rahim Allah He mentions in his book man after Burma, the virtues of Omar that one time Omar Radi Allahu anhu, passed by a man talking to a woman in the middle of the road.

00:16:43--> 00:17:23

Obviously, this has to mean like talking to her in a way that looks shady. Like giggling with her sort of like somebody looking over his shoulder. He was looking suspicious doesn't mean talking to a woman, right. Talking to a woman in the middle of the road for Allahabad dura. So he lifted his stick on top of his head, meaning he almost swung at him. Like, get out of here. What are you doing here? Right for Allah? Who would Dora he raised his stick? And so the man said to him, man, yeah, I mean, I mean, whoa, oh, I mean, I don't mean slow down. I mean, I mean, in the ham ROTC. This is my woman. This is my wife. It's not a foreign woman to me. So I'm not upset to him for Hello, hey,

00:17:23--> 00:17:30

Thula rockiness Then why didn't you do this? In a place where people would not see you?

00:17:31--> 00:17:37

Even though it's your woman, this kind of behavior doesn't look like not everyone knows this is your woman.

00:17:42--> 00:18:01

And I'll be happy Rahim Allah, He narrates from recent newness. There's actually a very famous incident. And there's many different versions of it. But the point is always the same. I'll read to you one of the two versions. This version is actually narrated by Jehovah. It says that Ibrahim and Natha he one time said to Solomon and Amash.

00:18:02--> 00:18:52

So, Ibrahim and Nephi The problem is that he was our he had one bad eye on defective eye, and alarmist Solomon Mahan, he was called an image because he had one bleary eye. So each of them had one bad eye. Right. And so Ibrahim Anika, I said to Sulaiman Allah Amash, because they were about to walk together on the road in the NASA era ona man of God who are our wiremesh. So people see us walking together, they're gonna say a guy with one eye walking with a guy with one eye. And in the other narration that I didn't read to you, it said that there was a previous incident when the kids kept chasing them in the street saying, I Nene BNF Nene, I Nene being a thing, two eyes onto people,

00:18:52--> 00:19:12

meaning each of them has one two eyes onto people, it taunting them. So Ibrahim enought I said to him, in the NASA era, elder man follow our our Amercia people see us walking together to get it it's like a laughingstock it's like a joke waiting to happen. They're gonna say, you know, one guy who's our other guy who's Amish.

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

And so

00:19:17--> 00:19:32

an AMA said, Why am I like and yet family went to jail. Why does that bother you? They get the sins and we get the good deeds, they get the sins for making fun of us, and we get the good deeds for being made fun of for having to go through that. And so Ibrahim said to him,

00:19:33--> 00:19:57

Rahim and xi Why am I like a Islam with Islam? And what does it bother you for them to be saved? Of the temptation to taunt us meaning and we be saved from being made fun of right? What we don't get reward for helping people not fall into the haram. Right? Notice this isn't even a haram. This is someone else that could fall into haram because of something and impairment that I personally have.

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

And Malik community

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

You know, Rahim Allah Allah says it has reached me that more i We have NaVi Sophia and Radi Allahu Allah and one time said to a lack nothing can replace Bhima SUTA Colemak How did you become the leader of your people like you're the most respected here well enter Lester be attend me him wala Ashrafi him. When you're not the most complete of them you're not the most total package, nor do you have the best ancestry. Yet everyone accepts you as their leader. So he said in Neela it's a colorful magical feat while a year OMA will lead well I will enter NASA Kerry who shoulder Bulma e mail to him to

00:20:40--> 00:21:19

three things this is like his life principles that he lives by. He says I do not involve myself in something that I'm not sort of needed for or requested in whatever I'm sort of left out of I don't stick my nose in that's one number two, why Allah Allah your OMA will leads and I don't neglect any responsibility that's given to me when I give a word I keep my word right when I'm sort of held to a certain expectation I deliver well, that will tell you oh my will lead here's the third one that's related to this issue. He says and if the people started disliking drinking water I would not drink it

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

right if it was somehow looked at as something negative I live up to that standard

00:21:29--> 00:21:31

mean he means in front of them for sure he'll die

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


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


00:21:42--> 00:21:43

he can drink at home

00:21:44--> 00:22:08

or behind like the the bleachers meaning I wouldn't do in front of them something that would cause them to look down upon me works very nice. So that's the first one he they distance themselves from these places of suspicion. The second one he says you believe Oh, now I might Allah Rosa well, you should we're gonna lay him while I assume buena home.

00:22:10--> 00:22:16

This is an intricate balance that they hate the actions of the sinful

00:22:17--> 00:22:24

and they are fearful for them they're concerned about them. Well, I assume gonna home and they do not insult them.

00:22:25--> 00:22:39

And he mentioned the narration here from Abu darda Radi Allahu Allah and that there was once a man that had committed a sin and to the people were scolding him and insulting him because of that sin is caught drinking or stealing or whatever it may be.

00:22:40--> 00:23:15

And so he said to them, are a tomb low Wadjet to mu fear Caliban, LM takuna. Mr. krijg. If you found this man stuck in the bottle from a well he tripped and fell into a well, wouldn't you pull him out? They said, Of course, he said, fell out. So Bucha harcombe. What medulla Hala the Alpha come, then don't insult your brother. And thank your Lord who spared you. That's not how you show gratitude to Allah for having guided you away from that particular sin, though, and this is your brother, you should care about him. You're not helping him out of it by cursing him while he's in it. Right by shaming him.

00:23:16--> 00:23:20

He said, then don't insult your brother and praise your Lord who spared you.

00:23:21--> 00:23:28

They said to him fly to blue, who don't you hate him? Don't you hate the sinner? Don't you hate the sinner? We always say Right?

00:23:29--> 00:23:44

Or hate the sin not the sinner. So they said to him, don't you hate him, the sinner. He said in namah abogado Anna Ella, who for either Tara care who, for whom Erkki what I really hate are his actions.

00:23:46--> 00:23:50

And so if he abandons them, then he returns to being my full brother.

00:23:51--> 00:23:54

This is a big subject and a little bit of a philosophical one. But

00:23:56--> 00:24:19

here's the idea. What is the Buddha or the law saying here? That yeah, I hate him. Yeah, sort of like he's a little less of my brother because he's doing this because he's gonna return once he leaves it to be my full brother. But I don't hate him inherently. We don't hate people. These are this is a human family. We may hate someone insofar as they represent an evil action, right.

00:24:22--> 00:24:47

But we don't reduce a person to one of their actions. They're a collection of all of their deeds, you know, like someone can say, hate my mom. She's always gossiping. Right? But if his mom Allah forbid you were hospitalized, he would give up his life to donate whatever organ he has to keep her life. He doesn't hate her meaning he wants her doom and destruction. So

00:24:48--> 00:25:00

you can't separate sin from sinner. They are the doers of the deed. But at the same time, they don't get equal treatment. Like I hate the sin inherently and I want it to be this

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

Right. That's part of how you keep society pure, you have to totally be rejecting of evil. Right? But I don't hate this person want them to be destroyed. I hate them so far as they represent the sin, but they have other deeds as well. And I don't want them to be destroyed. I am protective of them and fearful for them.

00:25:19--> 00:25:30

Right? So like the target of my hate is not the person just in the way sometimes it's actually the deed itself inherently not the person themselves. Does this make sense? Yes, sir.

00:25:32--> 00:25:57

No Muslim or non Muslim? Of course, it's going to be greater with the greater the evil Sheikh is the greatest evil but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the end of the day, loved his uncle Abu Talib, who rejected faith. Allah azza wa jal himself attests to this when he said in Nicoletta demon habits, you don't guide the one you love who's the one he loves?

00:25:58--> 00:26:16

I will tell him that Masha. Allah azza wa jal said well, Masana, tahmina Latina Otto Kitab and the chase women among those who are allowed to marry the chaste women from among those who were given the Scripture, meaning Jewish and Christian women, is our deen telling us.

00:26:17--> 00:26:26

We're allowed to marry a chaste Jewish or Christian woman, but we're not allowed to love them. No way, I can't be the meaning. Right?

00:26:27--> 00:26:53

We love them for the relationship, right? We love them for we don't love them for their golfer, if you love someone for their coffee, and then you've accepted go for the New York Africa to write, that's a different issue. But the person is not exactly the deed. He is a committer of that deed. And so we have a certain feeling towards an evil doer insofar as they represent the evil, but we don't reduce them to any one of their acts. This is normal and pretty logical, right?

00:26:55--> 00:26:55


00:26:58--> 00:27:21

You know, even some of the scholars said, because I know this point is a is a sticky one. They said how could Islam ask you when Islam says it will never burden you beyond your capacity? And Allah created us our nature is to love those that are kind to us. How can it then come and ask you to not love those that are kind to non Muslims? How can that even work?

00:27:22--> 00:27:26

Like imagine a non Muslim that puts themselves on the line?

00:27:27--> 00:27:59

To stand up for our brothers and sisters in Palestine right now? Right? They subject themselves and their wealth and their time, potentially their career on the line to take a stand? How can I not feel love and affection on some level for a person like that? Right? How can we expect that Allah would hold us to that standard when He created us this way, and told us he will not hold us beyond our capacity, and that this is our nature, and he has obligated us to be grateful and appreciative like how our deen is about all of this. So that's just an important qualifier.

00:28:01--> 00:28:31

And in hudgell, haIf Amira henna hola and this is what we were talking about yesterday. That's what I said I was reading it yesterday. I was sort of checking these pages yesterday. In preparation for tonight. He said, Allah azza wa jal said in the Quran for in Ahsoka for call in Newberry or mimma that I'm alone. If they refuse you Oh Mohamed, then say to them, I have nothing to do with I don't associate I have no association with what you do.

00:28:33--> 00:28:40

Not I anybody on mink from who you are, is there ever in the Quran? I have nothing to do with you. Anybody who mink?

00:28:41--> 00:28:43

From a believer, there is one

00:28:45--> 00:29:20

which is if Rahim Allah is set up. Right? Allah azza wa jal says the planet like almost certain there is a good example for you and Ibrahim and those that are with him. If God only thought really filming him when they said to their people in Brahmin come with this associated with you entirely. Fine, okay, if we're talking about someone who is not just a doer of sorts of immorality, or a disbeliever within themselves, but they are persecuting you to leave your faith like they then okay, then you can categorically and sort of simplistically this associate all together, but otherwise.

00:29:21--> 00:29:37

Allah says what's here for in Ahsoka, if they declined to obey you, they're not harming you, but they're harming themselves by declining to obey you then say I have nothing to do with your deed not you see the difference there.

00:29:38--> 00:29:44

Okay, so he says, Alafia Allah has said that and he did not say I am clear from you.

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

And this alludes to the statement of Ecuador. I actually hate his deed. If he leaves it he returns to being my brother. Then we also have the Hadith in Sahih Bukhari let's Hakuna only shaytani Allah Alikum Do not be in

00:30:00--> 00:30:50

assistance to shaitan against your brothers or sisters of course, right? So hey, Femi says Well, I mean yeah, and let's see he tariku terlato Phoebe and Alison part of helping shaitan is withholding your kindness or your gentleness from a sinful brother for in a lot of be he you're either who Isla Salahi be Sora where Adam tema Cooney shaytani Minho, because being gentle with him, returns him faster to his rightful state, it rehabilitates their mortality faster and does not leave them to for shaytaan to fully get their grip on the person. Right? Because the Hadith says, the stick to the community because the wolf eats the sheep that stray. So sometimes we push them out. Sometimes they

00:30:50--> 00:30:56

leave neither we want to keep pulling them back in. We want to keep them around us so that they don't stray further.

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

Then he says we're in Canada for two if you have to give her love he left and Africa it Malika Allah. Well, cool. Luma Emkin Allahu handblown. So hey, Hunter is a referral fee. Okay. Then he says the last thing he says here, and if it was accidental, and it was something they hurt you personally with, then it is recommended. And there is no disagreement among the scholars that it is recommended for you to

00:31:25--> 00:31:34

recommend it not mandatory for you to tolerate that from them. Okay. He says, and if there's any way to

00:31:37--> 00:31:57

read his behavior charitably, oh, maybe there he could be right in his own mind and his own interpretation. It wasn't sort of a personal thing and or a slip. A slip here doesn't mean accidental. A slip here means rare have Fleming who like he stepped out of his characters that that of his element. He's saying, but if a person now has committed evil

00:31:59--> 00:32:10

in your interpretation, but there's a very reasonable way to say what he did could actually have been correct, then it becomes mandatory on you to let it go. Anyway.

00:32:18--> 00:32:21

The last citation, I will include here, very beautiful one,

00:32:22--> 00:32:34

if not best, the cousin of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he read Allah's words, or Ohama obey in a home that the believers are merciful among each other.

00:32:35--> 00:32:51

He said, This was his interpretation of it, meaning like, this is called that suitable method. Sometimes scholars give an example of how to apply the verse, it doesn't mean this is the only meaning of the verse, right. So when I say for example,

00:32:54--> 00:33:06

a low point in dunya, that God will come out at a low point in dunya. And I say stock market crash. I don't mean that's what the hadith is saying. I'm saying, for example, like the stock market, one of the stock market crashes, right?

00:33:07--> 00:33:17

Who's parked illegally? There's a woman that's trying to get out. Oh, it was actually true. So that looks like a Sienna. It's a Toyota la Hm.

00:33:18--> 00:33:35

Sienna, minivan. Okay. No, it's a Toyota looks great. Is a great black Toyota at Hm 8188 I won't make any corny jokes. It was not a fundraiser. So if whoever's car this is someone's trying to get out, so if you can just move it a bit for them, just like a Loffredo

00:33:36--> 00:33:37

you deserve a raise.

00:33:39--> 00:33:48

So, the an example of how to show mercy with each other the believers if not best, says, yet the rule salejaw, whom literally he him,

00:33:49--> 00:34:25

the Righteous Among them make dua for the corrupt among them. What are they who whom Lee Salehi him and the corrupt among them make dua for the righteous among them. So when the corrupt looks at the righteous from the owner of Muhammad, these are still his words sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says Allah Houma Baddeck Leto female Qasim Taylor who Meenal Haiti with a bit too early he went for an OB O Allah bless him in this great share of good you've given him and grant him steadfastness on this good and benefit us with their good

00:34:26--> 00:34:43

we're either another a solid hola and when the Righteous One looks at the corrupt one he says Allahu Mahadevi were to ballet. He was a fella who if ratar O Allah guide him and forgive him and accept his repentance for his slipups

00:34:44--> 00:34:46

they're all making dua for each other. There's sort of

00:34:47--> 00:34:58

a harmony in that concern for one another, the last and final section. What did I have in store for you guys today? I filled it. Here we go.

00:35:05--> 00:35:19

He says yummy Dona Houma Loma where you put the moon and masala Hi Muslimeen while I for 1am while at home while doing Alma Voluma, Isla Alia. They live with a deep concern for the affairs of the Muslims.

00:35:21--> 00:35:23

sense of duty sense of responsibility

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

for a society that is just a society that is safe, right, they carry the concern of this ummah and they prioritize the interests of the Muslims and they safeguard their wealth

00:35:36--> 00:35:42

and they restore any injustices to their rightful places.

00:35:44--> 00:35:50

So he mentioned five examples here I'll share them all with you because they're just so hard to choose from.

00:35:52--> 00:36:13

The first of them is that there have been a himolla narrates from I thought I've never thought of that who is the the grant called the of Mecca for his lifetime is one of the great TED green. He says, firstly man, the wife of Ramadan Abdulaziz, you know, Fourth Amendment's Abdulmalik she was the daughter of the Khalifa. She married the one that would become the Khalifa

00:36:15--> 00:36:22

disease. So she narrates this about her husband, the great American Abdulaziz Rahim Allah that she entered upon him

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

and he was in his Salah corner with his hand on his cheek with his tears flowing down. And she said yeah, Ameerul Momineen Oh commander of the believers, what happened?

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

She said, Oh faultily him out. I assumed the reins of this ummah, the OMA of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that's what happened.

00:36:50--> 00:36:55

I'm now responsible for everybody. And I had no desire for this

00:36:56--> 00:36:59

for difficult to fill for Kirill Jaya

00:37:03--> 00:37:16

and so I thought about the hungry poor person. Well Maria Tada and the neglected sick person while I read image hood and the exhausted naked person

00:37:19--> 00:37:24

well, mauve loom will not hold and the powerless victim of oppression

00:37:27--> 00:37:46

well of our Ebola sore and the captive in a faraway land. Well Kabir and the elderly was in a early was in early we're very early if he authorial out and a person that has so many dependents huge families in faraway territories of the earth.

00:37:52--> 00:37:55

He said for him to enter our bases and oneone home.

00:37:58--> 00:38:01

And I realized that Allah had asked me about all of them.

00:38:02--> 00:38:18

When Hosmer home when he asked me Do not home should be Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that their advocate, the prosecutor against me. In their defense, their advocates will be the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:38:20--> 00:38:41

For Kashi to a letter through tele Hoja in the hustle, Matty, and I fear that I would not have any argument that would hold water against the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, I'm going to be there on the Day of Judgment. May Allah protect us all? On the opposite end of a courtroom with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam so how can I win

00:38:43--> 00:38:51

for her she to a letter totally Hoja in the whole somatic for him to NFC fabricates, so I felt bad for myself, so I cried.

00:38:56--> 00:39:13

And other heavy Rahim Allah He also narrates from Alcalde the great judge Bahat Dean even shed dead who was a judge during the time of Salahuddin Allah up the liberator of Mr. de la casa. He says one time the great Sultan Salahuddin

00:39:14--> 00:39:15


00:39:16--> 00:39:22

discussing back and forth with us regarding the peace treaties that the enemies wanted to strike with him.

00:39:25--> 00:39:31

And he said I fear to make a peace treaty, a half one or Salah because I don't know what's going to happen.

00:39:33--> 00:39:49

I don't know what's going to happen if I make a peace treaty that may actually cause them to get stronger. And they still have many territories under their hands. And so they can come out to regain to regain all of the lands that we remove them from the belong to the Muslims.

00:39:51--> 00:40:00

And then we might see every last one of these people, meaning his brothers and sisters that run other territories to other Muslim rulers, and then we see our

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

Every last one of these people is sitting there in his castle, saying Allah and zeal I won't come down to the battlefield, where Halycon Muslim moon, and then the Muslims will be destroyed. He's saying, I wish I could stop fighting. Like it's hard. And I'm all alone, and I'm fighting on many fronts. But I don't know if I have the permission. I don't know if it's permissible for me to strike a peace treaty, and not continue to weaken them further, because no one else wants to do this job. Everyone else's just prefers to stay at home, in their own castles, their own fortresses.

00:40:34--> 00:40:49

And if that had been Rahim, Allah also narrates in a lengthy narration that Omar Abdulaziz one time wrote to Abu Bakar, even the husband and said to him, this is like how protective they were of Muslim money. This is now pivoting a little bit quickly.

00:40:51--> 00:41:00

There are more than that, as he is wrote to a man under his jurisdiction under his government. He said to him, I did call amoc Whakaari Boehner asterik

00:41:02--> 00:41:21

sharpen your pen, and keep the lines tight when you're writing letters on government documents, basically, he says for in the ACARA Hill and Oak Ridge, I mean, I'm wildly Muslim, Ina interferon of it. Because I fear to spend Muslim money on something they will not benefit from.

00:41:22--> 00:41:55

The integrity, right he's, he knows this money is not my money. It's a Muslim money. So we have to be very careful in how we do and don't spend it. And yeah, Heaven has Hamza narrates something similar that Omar Abdulaziz Rahim Allah, he used to have a particular candle that he would work under at night, when he was finishing the affairs of the Muslims. Like he's going through government business, he would work under a certain candle. Then when he finished his work, he would turn off that candle

00:41:56--> 00:42:21

and turn on his personal lantern for his personal business. He was that careful about the Amana the trust that he felt he was shouldering on behalf of the Muslims, that this was a responsibility and not a privilege. And the last and final one, we will close with a lathe Rahim Allah. He says that there Omar, Abdullah Aziz, when he got into power, he started with his own household.

00:42:22--> 00:42:25

Because you know, it was a dynasty. So that was all in the family.

00:42:26--> 00:42:34

And so he basically confiscated all of the properties of all of his family members, and put them back in the Muslim treasury. So the first thing he did,

00:42:35--> 00:43:02

he made a lot of enemies very fast. He says for other, maybe add him to everything they owned, was some and while I hold my volume, he all their property. He said these are actually wrongfully acquired. This is misappropriation. This is usurpation, not your stuff, you don't deserve it. The ruling class doesn't get this size chair. And then generationally became more and more and more and more. So basically, everything you have is essentially not yours. So he started reversing it.

00:43:04--> 00:43:10

And so Ben, who may or may it's the family he's from that where the past, you know, five or six rulers, at least.

00:43:12--> 00:43:17

They sent to his aunt, his dad, sister, Fatima, vinta. Marwan

00:43:18--> 00:43:32

like you have to stop this man, this man is crazy. This guy is just unbelievable. He's out of his mind. And so they sent to her you have to speak to him. And so she sent to him a letter saying I'm very concerned about something.

00:43:35--> 00:43:52

And then she came to him one night, so he came out and he takes her off of her animal, her horse, or camel or mule, and then he takes her inside and he sits her down and he says, Oh, my aunt you have more of a right to speak your My elder speak. I'm at your service. What can I do?

00:43:54--> 00:44:05

And so she says to him to kill him yet minimal money. No, you speak what's on your mind? Like what do you think I'm here for? You just basically called the whole family criminals. What do you think I'm here for you speak. Explain yourself.

00:44:06--> 00:44:34

So he said to her, Allah sent Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as Arahama as a mercy. Well, let me ask you adab and he did not send him as a torment of the world. He was not a king. He was not an oppressor. He was not a collector of treasures, right? He did not send him as a torment and a punishment to people. What thought Allahumma Indore and he chose that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam, you get to have that which is with Allah, the greatest treasure the hereafter.

00:44:36--> 00:44:59

For Terra kala whom Nihon sure boom salah, and he left for them much prosperity, the momentum that started in the time of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam continued well into the immediate period right so he left for them he carved out for them a river right prosperity, worldly prosperity that they get to drink from equally. He's trying to say that the whole room has access to the prosperity of the OMA. We should all be enjoying this

00:45:00--> 00:45:08

He says and then Abu Bakr came and left the river as is he didn't confiscate any of the prosperity that was

00:45:11--> 00:45:14

won over for this OMA under Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:45:19--> 00:45:38

he says and then Omar came and he did the same thing that his companion did about the Allahu Allah Jamia and then the river continued to be stolen from he's referring to Marwan opted Malik. The first rule is a venerable Mayor right now. Abdul Malik Marwan, his son and so on and so forth.

00:45:40--> 00:45:51

You see, Ben Oh, you guys know who Ben omega is? They're from Quraysh after the rightly guided philosophers and a few others, right. You had basically Marwan al Hakim, then his son,

00:45:52--> 00:46:03

Abdul Malik the son of Marwan, and then you had, who is next, Al Walid, the son of Abdul Malik, then his brother, Hashem, even Abdul Malik.

00:46:05--> 00:46:19

No, actually then Sulaiman Abdul Malik, who was right, who was more righteous than the rest of them, but then the most righteous of all to get from Sulaiman which was on one of these himself, right, he said it kept getting stolen from he's referring to it when he

00:46:21--> 00:46:28

Marwan and then Abdul Malik, and then Allah will eat and then soon a man, he said, Now it landed in my lap.

00:46:29--> 00:46:53

And this great river has dried up entirely. The Muslims don't enjoy anything of what is rightfully theirs. While ner Rui Allah who had the Orlan, Yoruba Yahweh, Allah who had their odor in American ally, and the people will not be saved from their thirst, they will not be quenched until we restore it the way it was in the time of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:46:54--> 00:47:33

So she said to him Hasbrook, that's enough, fellas to be the Akira tiene la cache and I can't say anything to you, what can I possibly say? And she went back to them. And she informed them of what Omar Abdulaziz said that he's not interested in appeasing anybody on this matter. And they say this is why he was only Khalifa for two years. And some of the reports that have been cathedra and others mentioned is that they paid someone 1000 dinar to poison him, and he gave him a drink that was poisoned, because he was so difficult, on his concern for the Muslims and the spirit of justice and restoring it to the prophetic ideal.

00:47:34--> 00:47:53

That's all. I'll stop here in sha Allah azza wa jal asking us all to at least be people of justice within our homes and our communities asking us to be concerned about the welfare of all human beings far and wide and our brothers and sisters in particular Allahumma Amin, well sal Allahu wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germain, Zach Loffredo
