So the statement that I just mentioned right now, which means whoever guarantees and controls
what is between
and that which is between his legs?
I guarantee that person Janna
What did the process I mean by that
whoever controls his tongue,
protects his tongue safeguards his tongue
as well as their private part.
If you can't guarantee if you can control these two things, these two reasons
if you can control the thoughts that lead you to
commit all kinds of violations with them. The prophesy celebs says I will guarantee that person Jana
and I said the first one is more difficult than second.
We find any many people especially Muslims, people who are the target audience for this particular hotbar.
They maintain their chastity
though, things are getting bad but they're very careful with regards to engaging in any
unlawful relationship that displeases Allah subhanho wa Taala they pursue their physical and emotional pleasure through ahead enemies.
But how can we pursue
our verbal pleasure through hell enemies?
When we are so used to gossip
when we are so addicted to backbiting?
One of the hardest things to control is this piece of flesh called the tongue.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when we had been in general the Allahu Anwar was hot his advice. One of the last thing that he said to him
he grabbed his tongue, his own Blessington, with his the tips of his fingers, his index and his thumb, and he said, I'm sick Ali Kochava
control it control this piece of flesh.
are we held accountable for what we say? We usually just say things we don't pay attention to what we say. I mean, just speak. So thank you. Let's go. Oh, my camera. May your mother lose you Omar is trying to get his attention. It's an expression.
What do you think gets most people to be thrown in hellfire most people will be Allah will cast most people in hellfire on their faces on their noses nose first, they're going to dive into hellfire
because of that,
while you Kabu NASA, or where he could witness fanatee Illa Hassan
Al Cinedigm What do you think gets most people into hellfire other than what they earn what they say with their tongues. And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to warn us
of the ills of the tongue.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
in the Hadith he talked about how a man may utter a word
taking it lightly
don't think of it to be a big deal. Yeah, we have it now. The processor then says in the larger later color, mobile Kelly man, my tibia and Ophelia without paying attention
and another narration without really giving it much thought.
May it be enough here Yanni may upload mana have any masters have but fear you will kill calamity that Allah Our Heaney?
Billa mobila It's a killer mobile Kelemen one word, one statement.
And because of it, he has zeal lubi have he nary a banal machine at Walmart.
And that person will end up slipping into hellfire. Kelly Malloy, one word. That is why we have to be extremely careful
with what we say, especially about other people, and especially about Muslims, and especially about scholars.
Now, someone might say why, what's the big deal? Well, the honor of a believer
there the sanctity that was established by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. of arugula movement.
Many in Aragon Eraldo, misdemeanor haram.
You cannot defame you cannot disrespect you cannot dis dishonor you cannot violate the honor of any human being.
But especially the believers
have to be very careful.
You have to be very careful. You have to be protective of the honor of the believer.
Foster system says couldn't Muslim Yeah. And then Muslim haram haram demo where man whoever the problem is Salah missions, blood,
or property, money and honor in the same statement without making any distinction between them.
There are some times people the reputation and their honor is as important
as their lives.
Their livelihood may actually depend on their reputation and on their honor.
There are people who would rather die
than allow someone to actually hurt their honor.
Their honor, so they would die for their honor.
So Allah subhanaw taala declares haram, the prophesy Selim made it haram promises and brought it up again and again and again. Even in his farewell speech to province on Sunday, we spoke about it that's where he made that statement.
Could you Muslim, Muslim haram who a man who
not only that the Prophet said and went further and he warned
he said, Oh, you who claim and profess faith with your tongues, yet a man has not entered your hearts. In other words, who was he identifying
men and what have you okay in hypocrites is hypocritical is one of the qualities of the hypocrites said all you.
There were some in his communities Allah Allah Davidson said all you who claim to be believers
and join the body of the believers are you claim to be members of the
Community of the believers
yet the man has not entered your hearts
the province has issued a very, very stern warning to them. He said Woe to you stop going after the flaws and the faults of the believers stop exposing them.
Now who am I to tell boy I would often Muslim in
Vietnam and attacked by a Muslim whoever goes after the faults and the flaws of a believer of trying to expose it to the Allahu Allah to Allah will go after him.
And whoever Allah subhanaw taala goes after Allah will expose.
Then I'll have them nasaka Rahim Allah said And of all the believers the most sacred after Rasul Allah, and the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are the scholars of the Ummah,
from the generate from the second generation from the generation after the time of the Sahaba, all the way until the end of time.
And he said, Be careful, Allah Subhana Allah in the Quran gives us a parable.
Right, the example of someone who back baits and speaks ill of people behind their back, the prophets Allah Allah Subhana Allah in the Quran tells us is like the example of a person who eats the flesh of that individual while dead.
Well, I have to double combat Allah, Allah says, Let's not some of you backbite meaning say things behind someone in their absence and the province of Selim defined in the Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them,
I said You ruined me labor lever
or he Aquaman lever they said, What is the barest will Allah God the crooked Huckabee may occur? He said to mention or say something about an individual, about a brother or a sister in their absence that they don't approve of
that they find to be offensive to mention them to mention something about them something that is related to them related to their fight, whatever it is, their family, anything that is related to that into individual to assign or talk about an individual to someone else in the absence of that individual.
In a manner that offends that person. We're not talking here about you saying mashallah brother so so it's an amazing brother, but there's nothing wrong with that. Some people may not like to be praised, but there is nothing you're saying something good about them.
Allah Hey love soon so for the sake of so and so Masha, Allah, very generous May Allah Subhana Allah bless him positive things, but to say something negative, something demeaning something offensive about them in their absence.
One of the Sahaba said, rasool Allah,
are eight in canopy Akima accord. What if what I'm saying about this person is true. I'm not making things up. I'm giving a very
honest feedback or critique or however she wants sometimes comes and beautiful. You're just giving a critique.
I'm entitled to my opinion. I'm just saying what I think about this person.
And I have evidence for it. He said the province has said listen to this, my dear brothers and sisters,
family member, everyone. I'm just calling out to everyone out there. Listen to this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, in kind of fee he met a code. If what you said about him is true
for Kadena Tabata that is Riba. That's a very crime. And the very ugly sin I'm talking about.
That's what I'm talking about. When you say something that is true,
that's what the problem was. And I'm saying, Do not bring up something that is true about a person in their absence is cowardly, is haram, Allah subhanaw taala for business from it, it destroys relationships, it most importantly it just it actually eats up your good deeds. As it is my dear brothers and sisters, we have very small number very limited amount of good deeds Wallahi we don't have much to give away.
And when you engage in these actions, it actually eats up your good deeds. Shouldn't do that. That's why one of the one of the early scholars said and some people say it's Abu Bakr, right, he said if I was to back by anyone, it would have been my parents,
my own parents, so my good deeds go to someone that I really care about.
Why? Why would someone work so hard and then just give it away like that?
So the Prophet SAW Selim says that if it's true then that is Hiba. That is the ugly side
then that I'm forbidding you from. That's what I'm telling you stay away from
weighing them. Yeah. If what you're saying is not true. If it's not, if it's not accurate.
If you don't have
a way to prove it, then it's even worse. The better.
Yeah, let me I can collab. Okay. Hello,
Lisa, Lisa, Lisa Ludwig is back in LA.
What is to happen Boulton caddy, if Tierra
one to one. That's why Bhutan
is even worse. Now it's slander.
On the Day of Judgment, the person will have to prove it otherwise. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and I tell you, this hadith as a matter of Allah, He will Allah is, is the one one of the Hadith that scares me.
Prophet, Allah subhanaw taala.
The province of silence told us that on the Day of Judgment,
people will come with piles of goodies. As a matter of fact, the Prophet said them to get the attention of his of his companions. He said to them, I don't want to have men in my office. Do you know who the bankrupt is?
You know who the bankrupt is someone who has like nothing, they said, Rasulullah according to our standards, the bankrupt is someone that doesn't have any liquid assets or any
you know, manga when I met someone that doesn't have gold or silver and doesn't have any property,
no liquid assets, no solid assets, nothing. Someone who's completely broke has nothing that's a bankrupt.
They thought the problem was I was asking about the technical fit he legal definition of mirthless. He said no.
And hopefully assuming Amata bankrupt in my OMA is a person who will come on the Day of Judgment with piles of good deeds.
Someone that works so hard, used to fast, give sadaqa
volunteer do all kinds of things, all kinds of good deeds, pray soon and no, I felt pmla All kinds of things. But they come and on their record. They have a long, long sheet of offenses.
And one of the things that he mentioned, is what a Chatham ahava, they that person comes and they have insulted someone.
And they had said something about someone they earned, you're injured someone's feelings or someone's honor. They have all these small offenses left and right throughout their day, they're just going around, right? bashing everyone, right? Insulting everyone, critical of everyone in everything, on the Day of Judgment, all of that is going to be compiled and all of that is going to be exposed and all of that is going to be presented Wellsley emphasis will do
everything is going to be brought up every every statement every word, every action and the intention behind it is known to Allah subhanho wa Taala
and then the prophesy centum says people on that day will be given access to this individual's good deeds yella go he said something about you she said something about you go
right. And people will start taking good deeds from that individual until that person had to either funny or it has annatto until that person runs out of good deeds. Why? Because they used to do a lot of good deeds but then
couldn't control the tongue.
So even as Sakura Hema Allah says and the worst of these people, I mean, the most sacred of these people after the MBR and this one also have are the odema
he said the rune Amma right? When you back by someone Allah Subhana Allah says says it's like eating someone's flesh. Right? Eating someone's flesh. That's the
the flesh of the owner Matt is poisonous.
The homeowner hola Matt Amos MUMA
what are the two hola he Peyman taka see him?
Why? Because they are the heirs of the prophets.
Does this mean that we can't like their perfect doom?
Does this mean that they're right about everything? No, they make mistakes.
In their issue, how they make mistakes, the province has some said yet if a person reaches that level and they make a *head and they their issue turns out to be correct. Allah subhanaw taala will double reward them if it's wrong, Allah subhanaw taala will reward them for their attempts so long that they're qualified.
What about their grave mistakes or some that's between them and people either at their level or Allah subhanho wa Taala
you are not more
with the fate of the community and the interests of the Ummah, than these people who have spent their lifetime studying, learning
and giving Dawa for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala especially the ones whose track record is so clear, especially the ones who have been so consistent with their service to this ummah. So let's be careful My dear brothers and sisters Akula cola suffer Allah Allah welcome. First of all, we have to lock them in the Hall of horror All right.
hamdulillah hamdulillah WorkCover wa salatu salam O Allah, letting us stop her without our brothers from Slovic center in Coldwater, Michigan are here in sha Allah Allah they are in the final stages of
finishing their mashallah what appears to be a beautiful center in the southern part of the state of Michigan. So in sha Allah Tala, they're here they have a table outside please stop by and support them generously and get a share in what would be a sadaqa jariya for you, in sha Allah to Allah, on behalf of yourself or your family or your parents may Allah subhanaw taala make this place.
A place that insha Allah to Allah will spread the light of this religion, a place that would be a haven in sha Allah to Allah for the for the believers and for those who are searching for the truth be the nila heeta Allah, my dear brothers and sisters.
We all you know have issues and flaws and no one is perfect man, the lady Massa, many lady Allahu Allah Krishna.
we all have to acknowledge that that none of us is perfect.
But my responsibility is to preoccupy myself with my imperfections and my mistakes and my flaws,
preoccupy myself with that and work on them, and set off preoccupying myself with other people's issues and concerns,
Toba Lehman shock Allahu Abel who and openness
Glad Tidings to a person who is preoccupied with themselves and their flaws and their issues and their challenges and their mistakes trying to fix them and perfect themselves and become better than to take the time to look or notice even notice other people's flaws. That's number one. Number two
men hurting Islam and what I tell Kumala any part of someone's being a good Muslim is abandoning avoiding things that do not concern them. If it doesn't impact your concern you directly you should avoid it.
Number three, someone might say but what if it concerns me What if it has to do what if it's something that has to do with with that, with that person's well being or or even more important, the collective well being and the community's interest, then your role is to give enough see
now see how
a dean or not see how true religion religion is you being sincere
in your relationship with other people. You reach out to them you give them no see how following the proper etiquette of nasiha which we inshallah to Allah cover soon. And being delighted, proper Naziha be sincere, I do not see how many rasool Allah Allah Allah Allah wa Rasulullah he, when he Kitabi he, when he a metal Muslim in our Amity
So Paul, some included everything for the sake of Allah His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Revelation, the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. And then the promises that have said, the leaders of the Muslim community and the massive the members of the community, you have to have not seen
you go, you do your best and you go out of your way and you deliver whatever that person needs. If that person needs support, then you give them support. If that person needs advice, you give them advice. If that person needs accommodation or understanding you give them that accommodation understanding if that person needs resources, and you can facilitate these resources you do that that's what we'll see how many some people by the way, understand the word knows he has give advice. You come and lecture the person Mashallah. No, no, that's not what they'll say. They'll see how many is being sincere
in your attempt to rectify or fix the situation.
and that doesn't always have to be you mashallah, giving an you know, a very eloquent powerful lecture to the person, even with our children as a man sometimes lecturing someone about about an issue that they have may not, you know, how many times right how many times a person could actually, you know, a lecture will not do them any good. But instead of lecturing them, if you hold that person's hand and say, let me show you how to do it.
That will go a long way. Or give that person even a chance to speak. Maha Mala calahonda what is the issue? Let them maybe all they need is just to open up to someone. You know, I noticed such and such and such, what is this all about?
Right. Mostly Yeah, that's what Nancy Jaime's giving that person your most sincere attention
and helping them fix the issue.
I'm not had a single conscious being critical. Everyone is mashallah we're all good critics. We can all sit down and
pick up pick the flaws and say oh, yeah, this is what is wrong. Buy your book. How do we fix it? And we'll be not to construct
How do we fix mashallah, you You gave us the diagnosis.
Allama North Samia Rahim. Allah used to say chicken with him you say Be aware of half a scholar and half a doctor.
They said my man who have half the Alamo half he said half half an olive is a person Masha, Allah that knows everything about everything. And can come and tell you what is wrong with things. But they don't have solutions. They don't know how to fix it.
So we asked I was actually present that day was in the huddle. And they asked I said what is half a doctor? He said it's a person who actually is in their second whatever, like halfway into medical school. They know how to diagnose but they do not know how to prescribe medication. You don't go to that person.
They will tell you what is wrong. They will scare the daylights out of you. But they don't know how to fix it by what he said.
He said avoid these people.
