Hi,

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

hi.

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

Hi.

00:01:35--> 00:02:07

00:02:22--> 00:02:49

la la la la Sula. hufa defesa frozen all Lima after praising Allah azza wa jal, while recognizing that none can fully praise Him as He deserves, and testifying that none is worthy of our worship of Allah and Allah alone without any partners, the true supreme King, and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in truth, His Prophet and his servants and His Messenger. And after seeking refuge with Allah from the evil within us and from the consequences of our evil deeds,

00:02:51--> 00:03:06

I remind you and myself with the sacred covenant, the sacred contract between us and Allah, and that is for us to observe the taqwa of Allah all places in all times, to be alert to him and committed to Him and do default to him until we reach our life.

00:03:09--> 00:03:12

To begin after welcoming our brothers and sisters to the House of Lords, though gel

00:03:16--> 00:03:27

in classical times, beginning well before the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Arabs of Arabia used to call the non Arabs that

00:03:28--> 00:03:32

rajim, loosely translated as non Arabs.

00:03:33--> 00:03:36

But the reason they chose that word originally,

00:03:37--> 00:04:12

is because I just mean silent. I just mean, being speechless. I just mean having nothing to say. Even nowadays, inanimate objects like rocks, we call them Aaj mela, right? inanimate objects, they're not alive, because they don't know how to communicate, they don't know how to articulate by that they were asserting the fact that they were, and the bragging is ugly. The fact was, was correct. asserting the fact that they were not just the masters of the Arabic language and articulating in Arabic, they were the masters of language.

00:04:13--> 00:04:33

Sometimes, because of the distance of the two contexts, it's hard to imagine this, but at least recognize that these were people who then with language, language to them was a form of art. Then they looked at all the nations of the world and said, Why are you not speaking? Why can't you do what we do?

00:04:35--> 00:04:51

On top, it was so sophisticated, and it was so important to them. And it wasn't like my taste against your taste. It was sophisticated as as there were systems, so to measure who's right and who's wrong, who's better and who's not. There were caleffi meaning there was a balance and there was a rhythm and they were ruled to their Arabic.

00:04:53--> 00:04:58

And the reason I put all of this together, the Arabs even by the way,

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

would

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

Hold the festivity only one of two times when like a chief is born or a chief has a son, or a poet rises among them because everything revolved around this, around the shared around the sharara, around their mastery of expression of articulation.

00:05:18--> 00:05:23

Now, in the middle of that scene, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he sent,

00:05:25--> 00:05:39

he is sent with a book, there is also words in his articulation in speech, this speech broke out of all of their 16 modes, all of their styles, they didn't borrow from anyone anything in terms of style,

00:05:40--> 00:05:53

and refuse to copy from anyone, even the content. It wasn't into, like Isaiah and Rafa and like grievances and bragging, there were certain themes that they would outdo each other in, he refused to borrow from that either the style or the content.

00:05:55--> 00:05:56

And then add on top of this,

00:05:57--> 00:06:26

he refused to limit his subject, you know, you're not just saying a story, you're talking about very complicated issues, like philosophy and the meaning of existence, and this world and the next and legality like laws like well, you would find that a court. And all of that makes it even harder for you to express yourself in an artistic way, in a beautiful way. And then add on top of that, he went and spoke about meanings of war and spoke about the words of the previous nations and everyone knew he had no access to them.

00:06:28--> 00:06:56

And then add on top of all of that he could not read or write to begin with, and many of the things that he said, were responses to questions. So forget sitting there and crafting gifts and writing a first draft and a second graph, draft and then I submitted my PhD 12 years later, all of this was spontaneous. And so when you add all of this up together, you can imagine what he was like, the type of envy and hatred people had when they lived for this bragging right.

00:06:58--> 00:07:14

And that is what a lot though, isn't the picture for us in the Quran, and it will go to today's multiple topic, a lot of those answers at the end of sort of column, referring to the pen, what he can do Lavina cafaro they usually akuna can be a bit salty him lemma semiotic.

00:07:15--> 00:07:31

And we're not for our love protecting you, these unbelievers these non believers almost use the punakha. Beside him, they almost burned holes through you with their eyesight. They almost pierced you with their vision, in reference to an eye in the evil eye in reference to another.

00:07:33--> 00:07:39

They almost did that to you LMS. And you're addicted every time you open your mouth with something new, have this reveal the reminder.

00:07:41--> 00:08:21

And so what do I want to take from this? What do we want to remind ourselves about today, people's eyes align have a very real effect. It has an absolutely real effect. And we can say secondarily that most of the time it is the result of hazard. It is the result of envy, hating that a certain person be blessed with a certain something that I can't be blessed with. Having an edge on me in some way, shape or form. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Bukhari and Muslim so many Hadith I mentioned two, three or four of them, but there are so many more. This narration for a Muslim, even ambassador, the logo on whom I said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told

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

us I lie in

00:08:23--> 00:08:26

the eye meaning the evil eye the effect of the eye

00:08:28--> 00:08:43

is a reality it has a very real effect. What Oh, can I show you sambucol Casa de la vaca to line and if anything were to outperform destiny to outperform with Allah destined, it would have been the eye that's how powerful it is.

00:08:45--> 00:09:26

In another narration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, lie no to the Philo rajguru Adora were to kill Jamal al Qaeda, that I can even put a man into his grave. Can it cost someone their life and it can cost a camel to be placed in the cauldron or the kettle? You know when the camel is dying? So it's not hot on meat they slaughter it quickly so they can make use of it right and they cook it quickly. prematurely they didn't want to meaning again caustic the man his life and the camel his life and another Hadees also by javis How do you feel storagevault the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said exaro

00:09:28--> 00:09:41

menu mu to mean omega t bad acaba de la de Himalayan lying the most deaths that will take place in myeloma after what Allah destined and determines are those who die as a result of Allah him.

00:09:43--> 00:10:00

And unflappable, Claudia and Muslim the last Hadith I will mention the fourth and last omis Allah, Allah Allah said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam walked in upon a young girl once and he saw what she has Safar he saw some sort of mark on her face, some ailment with paleness, or blackness. The scholars differ with Stefan

00:10:00--> 00:10:26

I was referring to here, he said and he told them we had an opera. She was afflicted with another afflicted with this evil eye is sterile Kula, seek out a Rokia seek out a spiritual remedy a spiritual treatment for her. And so the eye is a reality. Our Deen is explicit on that. Some people may have trouble grasping the fact that someone looking at someone can have an adverse effect on that someone.

00:10:27--> 00:11:04

Even though Chi Rahim Allah says And I don't mean to be insulting or offensive, but just consider his words. He says muncul ayeni, one nuha wawan how ham, the person who denies the effect of evil AI and who assumes we're just imagining things like we're connecting things actually have nothing to do with each other, like a bad event with the look of the gaze of someone. He says the people that do this, he says edge Hello Naseby naturally the summary will happen. These people are the least educated the most unlearned, when it comes to a seminar the reports we've heard from a lot of messenger, meaning revelation, they are the most unlearned, and when it comes to Revelation, one

00:11:04--> 00:11:47

African and they are the least rational. And we'll get to that point in a second. They're not even being rational. He says what I was lovely him Hey, gentlemen, and these people have the thickest veil. What does he mean the biggest veil? He means that some people can be so veiled so blind, that all they believe in is the physical world, the tangible world, the world of this dunya they are blind to the VB, they are blind to the metaphysical claim. They are blind to the intangible that whatever I can't touch and feel doesn't exist. He's blind. He's so limited, that all he believes in all he recognizes is that which is here, and now that he can see. He said, Nobody is more limited

00:11:47--> 00:12:25

than than that. Nowadays, you can repackage this and say that people that limit themselves that their only source of knowledge is like experiments is like science. That's the only while we don't deny it, but to say that this is the only way you can prove something exists, is contrary to innokin, contrary to the revelation that has been reported to us, authentically provably and it's also contrary to rationale. You know, think about it. It's not even like we have an explanation to every negative effect that happens to us in our lives. Our physicians will tell us this before anybody. So many times the doctor is not able

00:12:26--> 00:12:31

to figure out what is the conclusive diagnosis, he doesn't know exactly what it is.

00:12:32--> 00:12:46

Maybe we will find out about it. So a certain point in time, and maybe it is from things from elements that are outside of what we can ever find out about. Didn't Allah tell us that in the Quran that are you Bally's Salaam were a physical ailment, said

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

Rob bn Nima, Sania shavon, beetle, something like that? Oh, my lord Shea Thawne has struck me, chiffon has afflicted me with great fatigue. He has tormented me. He's talking about physical torment here. He was physically sick.

00:13:02--> 00:13:16

And it is certainly beautiful. How in our Deen, Allah tells us how could you not believe in the hype? How could you not believe in the unseen, when a part of you is from the light,

00:13:17--> 00:13:42

a love with a part of the labor in you your soul your role? That is unseen. And so you are incapable you are irrational to believe that I am the physical me only you know that when you die, what exactly happens that death? What happens? What makes a person alive and dead? How do you explain the presence and absence of literally a part of you and unexplainable parts of you and unphysical parts of you a lot placed inside us like

00:13:44--> 00:13:50

there is even a hadith in Sahih Bukhari and elsewhere where Abdullah have now best of all the Allahu anhu Allah.

00:13:51--> 00:13:59

He said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to an era became to a Bedouin man, a Bedouin Arab. Yeah, whoo hoo, visiting him and his sickness.

00:14:01--> 00:14:13

And so he said to him, what we should say when we visit the sick, he said, Lavazza, tahunan insha Allah, there will be no harm on you. Allah will cure you inshallah, Allah will cure you.

00:14:15--> 00:14:31

And so the Bedouin men responded in a very unfortunate way. He said to him Colca tahune You said it was going to cure me? Well who are shoma rather This is a fever

00:14:33--> 00:14:38

definitely fear Association. kavir. to zero will COBOL

00:14:39--> 00:14:58

Well, he metaphor Allah says in Kabir to zero will COBOL He said, No, this is a this is the death fever. This is the death sickness. I'm not getting up from the ceiling. I will not get better. He's saying no rather This is a fever that causes an elderly man's head to boil let's send him straight to the graveyard

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

so

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

What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, call us? And even? He said in that case, yes, it will be.

00:15:08--> 00:15:30

In that case, yes, it will be. And so the idea of your perspective is the way that you look at things. It's like the way you see things, it's not true islamically speaking your perspective, the way you see the world is a two way street, the way you choose to see it, the way you decide to see it will also affect it, it actually has a real effect on things.

00:15:32--> 00:15:34

It has an effect on reality.

00:15:35--> 00:16:07

And so this was one extreme regarding the concept of the evil eye, which is a reality. Some people deprive themselves by not believing in whatever is not part of the physical reality, denying by that rationale, denying by that revelation, and veiling themselves, may Allah forbid as Allah subhanho wa Taala define Allah tala before, it's not the eyesight that goes blind. That's like the most minimal form of blindness. We're like in Tamil Illuminati for pseudo but it is the heart the spiritual perception that goes blind, that is the most detrimental form of lost vision.

00:16:09--> 00:16:11

The other extreme regarding an iron is what?

00:16:12--> 00:16:18

in our communities, people that are absolutely obsessed with the evil eye.

00:16:19--> 00:16:27

Anything anytime something goes wrong, you blame it on the evil eye. It is. It is never automatically.

00:16:28--> 00:16:39

their entire lives hinged around blaming wrong failure, negative consequences sickness, death, depravity on the evil eye.

00:16:40--> 00:16:47

And this is so sad. It is similar to also people that limit themselves to dream some people have a dream, some

00:16:48--> 00:17:35

vision they saw and their whole life revolves around it. But what about human experience? What about consulting the experts? What about the Quran? What about the sun? Now what about this because all those go secondary to a dream I saw the dreams have value they have some value, same thing. Does that have an effect? Absolutely. It has an effect. But that effect is not an absolute effect. The rain is part of the color of Allah. In the Hadith you heard Why do you think the prophet SAW Selim said that low Cana Shamoon sambucol Casa de la casa Lyon, if anything, were to outdo destiny, it would be the evil eye. Why did he say that? Because it doesn't, because even the evil eye is part of

00:17:35--> 00:17:47

a larger destiny. The same way you can get caught off guard and get hit with the flu which you can't see. You can also by the color of Allah be tested by being afflicted with the evil eye, which you can see.

00:17:49--> 00:18:00

Do we obsess over the flu, we take our precautions we wash our hands, you do what you feel like you need to do in terms of preventive measures, and you move on with your life, your life does not come to a screeching halt.

00:18:02--> 00:18:11

That is why he said in that second Hadees that no one dies from my own after a loss destiny and a loss determination

00:18:12--> 00:18:24

more than those who die after the evil eye or because of the evil eye. Why did he say that? Because those who die out of the evil eye are part of a loss destiny. So find out what that has no exception.

00:18:25--> 00:18:37

And so it is part of a loss cutter. And we cannot know about it except through Alan's revelation. And we cannot prevent or remedy the effects of the evil eye except with Allah's guidance

00:18:38--> 00:19:13

that we need to move to now. Some people are so obsessed by it they'll just try anything. thing that could hurt you so much like hanging amulets and talismans. tema in all these, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Man, I look at a mammoth and fella at Amala hula hoop, whomever hangs like a charm, a talisman and amulet, to complete an affair of theirs to complete their safety to complete their risk their money, whatever it is, Allah will never complete their affair of them. Allah will delegate them leave them to be dependent on that. And they will not find what they're looking for.

00:19:18--> 00:19:32

And then he did tell us what to do to kind of hautala he said to us that all of these powers I made them powerful. All of these influences I gave them influence, not the evil eye and not shade on himself will be able to hurt you unless I allow him to.

00:19:33--> 00:19:55

You know, very beautifully one of the setup. He said, What about this? He said, right when I've done will convene a lot he'll be in a shape on it does this a lot. had me see like the way I imagined it. He's saying, this slave is just in the middle there between Allah and JSON. It's not a fight. It's not a duel. If Allah takes you in shaitan, can't touch you.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

And if Allah leaves you without protection, you don't seek it. So Allah

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

leaves you without protection shaitan will engulf you. It's not that shavon will ever beat Allah or the evil I will ever divert from you something good that was coming your way or send to you something bad.

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

That was not coming your way.

00:20:17--> 00:20:35

And so the enemy never one. But the protector at times turns away when we don't go to him. We are not with him and then we wonder why he's not with us. So kind of hold on. And so what are some of the preventive measures quickly against this evil eye since it is such a reality?

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us

00:20:40--> 00:20:59

to protect our valuables from flaunting them. kinsman oneone when the Quran says pronounce the neon, the favors of your Lord, it doesn't mean do it. boastfully do it with humility. And it doesn't mean all the time it just means do it to those that you trust. If you fear someone may be envious of you don't just vote.

00:21:00--> 00:21:04

And of course we can always make the example of the online networks now.

00:21:05--> 00:21:18

When you post every meal that you have, and you post the occasions your food, your family, whatever it may be your wedding, and then people wonder why after every single wedding there's an unfortunate news about some sisters and brother

00:21:19--> 00:21:30

that went through this that are the third keeping your blessings hidden because everyone that is blessed and this world is limited we can't all have it all will be envied

00:21:32--> 00:21:54

didn't Yahoo Valley solemn tell his sons because they were so many they were 12 songs or 11 at the time or 10? He said, Well, I said Hulu mean Bab in washy, don't enter from one door it's Holloman Abu Dhabi multifactor when you enter Egypt to appeal to the game, enter from different doors, different gates of the city. Because people see you all of you together like that. Wow. What an impressive family.

00:21:57--> 00:22:06

And people fall left and right for these reasons and they don't know what caused them to die What caused them to become ill what caused them to become diseased, what caused them to fall apart.

00:22:07--> 00:22:11

It was narrated even that are semantic not fun at all. The Allahu anhu once saw an infant child

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

that had a

00:22:16--> 00:22:27

what chin dimple they call it right and you have that these dimples that inward right then sit in the cheek that many people in many cultures think are cute, some people have them on their chin. And this was something that was very

00:22:29--> 00:23:12

pleasant to their time. He said to them quickly the symbol netta who quickly hide that aspect of him always have him tucked in. Don't let people see that from him. When you share a picture of your children, think about the people who are not able to get past their envy. After decades of not being able to have children. When you share pictures of your meals. Think about the person who one of my initial Archer Mashallah said to us. He said I was told by one of my classmates that I did not put an apple in my hand until I came out of the village to get to the big city to get to college. I never had an apple. I never held an apple until I got to university can imagine when you when you

00:23:12--> 00:23:27

roll out your table to people, we are not saying they are allowed to afflict you. They may not even know that they are afflicting you, but you are co contributing to that harmful effect. So hide your blessings. Number two, when you see something that you like,

00:23:28--> 00:23:48

attributed to a lot all the time attributed to Allah and Flathead Makati and elsewhere to have those who have one of them was taking off his cloak so that he would make his way to Beth. So he took off his shirt. The man said I've never seen someone whose skin like yours. And the man immediately felt that he felt

00:23:50--> 00:24:11

until they tried to wake him up. They went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he came back he made it for him. Eventually the man came to and the man was revived. And he said to them, Do you suspect anyone they said well, this man said some very flattering words about this man's skin. So he said to them at least Salatu was Salam. O Allah. Maha Why does one of you kill his own brother?

00:24:12--> 00:24:43

It was not deliberate. These are brothers that love each other for the sake of Allah zildjian he said either I had to come in or he may you're a Jew who fell you better Rick for in the lineup. When one of you see something in their brother that they're impressed by, led to them invoke Allah's blessing say Allah is blessed did say May Allah bless it for you constantly accustomed your tongue to say it day and night all the time. Allahumma barik ala Masha Allah barakallahu li kovarik Allah always say these things ask Allah to bless that person to offset this effect.

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam The third thing, hiding your blessing and praying for your brothers, seeking protection for your family members and for yourself, if not best of all the level on whom I said the prophet SAW Selim will

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

Place his hands on his grandchildren and has an altar saying everyone should do this for their children. And say, or a lucuma be Kelly Mattila he

00:25:11--> 00:25:15

minko Alicia Bonnie wahama woman Kula in in LA.

00:25:16--> 00:25:21

He would say, I seek refuge in our laws perfect words

00:25:23--> 00:25:51

from the sheath on and every poisonous crawler like insects and snakes, and from every critical eye the evil eye Neelam every blameworthy eye, and then he would say La Salatu was Salam in bear Kumar Khanna you I will be will be Hema ibra is harkaway APU is Mariela is how your father meaning your great grandfather Abraham La Silla used to make this same day on his children is married and his Hawk.

00:25:52--> 00:25:54

cola cola has also for lalibela.

00:26:06--> 00:26:15

I'm Teresa osato, Salama lemon la vida de la ilaha illallah wa de la sharika Hashanah Mohammedan Abu whenever you who are solo.

00:26:18--> 00:26:31

We said in the beginning of the war that most of the time but not all of the time it is related to envy because how can you envy yourself from something that you already have? You're not hating on someone else have something

00:26:32--> 00:27:12

and the core an establishes that a person can inflict the evil eye on himself. For Lola, the hunter genetic equilter Masha Allah if only saw her get when you entered your garden you would have said whatever Allah decrees attributing the beauty to Allah, La quwata illa Billah there is no mind or power except by him Subhana Allah tala and also the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, either algebra hadoken May Allah who huduma Yura gebouw mean nipsey he were manly he will whether they fled or LA Havas Baraka. When you find something about yourself that you like, when you're looking in the mirror, or about your wealth when you stare at your bank account after trying so hard

00:27:12--> 00:27:27

to build it your portfolio, or your children, you're so grateful to have children like this, then ask Allah to bless them. It was said that too, they might have not been medic Ashima Hola. was very young. And one day he looked in the mirror and said

00:27:29--> 00:27:47

I am the only king that I know that got to be king. As a young man, everyone else became king, as a senior. As for me, I was permitted to be what I had the opportunity to be many Queen shab and the narrator says that within a month he died in his young age.

00:27:49--> 00:27:56

And so be very careful of striking yourself hurting yourself and your loved ones and your assets by virtue of taking this lightly.

00:27:59--> 00:28:28

And if you are struck with it, may Allah azza wa jal cure you through the message that he told you cure you in sha Allah Rukia the Quran and as soon as it is in the Hadith, and that will help you and also unless desire if you fear that it was a certain person, go ask them to bathe and give you the water. That's what our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, with a student sealer had to come fairly accessible. One of you was asked to hand over their bathing water so that they can report upon the person so they may be revived. do so.

00:28:31--> 00:28:58
