My dear brothers and sisters.
The topic of this hot was is a very simple concept. It's a concept that is
pretty much agreed upon.
In various faith, traditions, cultures and philosophies, you will find a statement or a word of wisdom
that confirms this particular principle.
the way we behave as human beings,
in our own interpersonal relationships, or in our businesses, or in our dealings with people,
or the way we treat our relatives, or our the members of our household, or the way we behave as communities or societies or cultural groups.
And worse than that is when you see
nations and governments and people in power, behaving in a manner that does not indicate that they have good understanding of this principle and this concept, this principle, or this concept, is a universal concept. It's a law, it's a natural law, if you will, it's a divine law. And as I said, you will find statements, words of wisdom in various traditions, traditions, cultures, that basically confirm or make this point, the point in a simple term that we are all familiar with, is that what goes around comes around,
be it good or bad.
Whenever you do something good,
it will come back, it will come back to to benefit you, whether you realize it or not. Right? The opposite is true. Whatever evil you do, it will come back in some tradition, they call it karma. And you know, of course we have in Islam, we have better understanding of what this is.
Nonetheless, it's all part of the divine justice of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Time and again, we see in our own lives,
in the stories that we read in books.
When we read history, when we analyze different
experience experiences that people have, when we look around us, we see evidence.
Time and again we see evidence again and again and again, that confirm this principle, yet again, we fail
to behave accordingly. So today I wanted to remind myself and you have a statement that is attributed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the authority of Buddha.
it seems to be weak, so we can't say for sure say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, however, even the scholars who consider this to be a weak
Hadith in terms of weak meaning that we cannot, we don't have enough strong evidence of the prophets. I send them said it himself. But it could have been a statement by one of his companions.
Yet, even though scholars would have to determine this to be a week
narration they actually said, lackey manner.
He said, The meaning the profound meanings within it, you know, not only is it true, but it's it's needed. Not only is it needed, but it also has showerhead. There there is in the book of a lot and in the other statements of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
statements that confirm each part of this, of this statement, right?
So it's a short statement. Yet, in order for me to make all the points within this statement, I will have to use two or three pages of Hadeeth. And so I just chose to share that statement with you, and reflect upon it. So
we are told, said
virtue or good deed, a good deed
does not go in vain.
It doesn't wear out, it doesn't know if there's no expiration date on it.
There is no expiration date, it doesn't expire.
Any good deed that you do, will be remembered.
You will be rewarded for it. You'll be blessed for it
sooner or later. And sometimes you'll be rewarded for it. And in various ways, multiple times. Not only sometimes are you blessed, but sometimes you Your family will be blessed. Your community can be blessed, humanity will be blessed. Someone might say one deed, a good day that you do. The blessings of that good deed can actually go beyond you. Yes, indeed.
when it was them boo leonessa. Likewise, sin or of an offense
will not be forgotten.
Any sin, any offense, anything that we do against someone
will not be forgotten. Sometimes. Actually, in most cases, people forget their own sins.
But the ones that they wronged will not forget it. The one that the wrong individuals or the wrong will not forget it.
But guess who else doesn't forget it? Allah subhanho wa Taala it will be recorded.
As Allah Subhana Allah says either in mohandro beefy keytab la de la violenza Allah subhanho wa Taala will not go wrong, nor does Allah subhanaw taala forget. So everything that we are everything that we say, right, and what it does,
it will be recorded sometimes we say or we do something and we don't realize the extent of damage that we cause. But guess what? That damage assessment is done. And it will be written.
Many times we forget Allah Subhana Allah says I saw hola who wanna Sue Allah subhanho wa Taala when counted, Allah subhanho wa Taala will record it will record it, it will be documented.
Though you may forget it.
And sooner or later, you will have to deal with the consequences of it. Sooner or later, you have to bear responsibility, what they are and who I am, I will I am owed and the judge, the one who's in control, the one that sees all of this
does not die. Nor does he sleep.
He's always aware of everything that is happening. And he keeps count of it.
So it says for cool camera * out FML mash it be as you wish.
Do as you please. Airmen mesh it, do whatever you want. If you think you can get away with it, right, it's up to you. But guess what, you're not gonna get away with anything. Airmen machines, do as you wish. Kamata Dino to Dan, as you judge, you will be judged
as you condemn other or roll over them, or walk all over them, or exploit them or abuse them. You will be held accountable. No one gets away.
No one gets away. You know, sometimes we hear people saying oh so and so did it and got away with it to a law he no one gets away.
Now when Allah subhanaw taala is around, they pay for it. And by the way, I believe they pay for it in this life. They may not realize it, they pay for it in this life, but they will for sure pay for it in the hereafter if they are not forgiven if they do not redeem themselves.
So no one gets away with anything.
And for those who say oh so and so did all of these things and got
got away with it. He had an easy and easy death, or he lived for as long as you want. He just died naturally and he got away with it. And nothing happened to him and the sooner we wanted him to suffer like those, like his victims Subhana Allah, many people don't realize that Allah azza wa jal says Cavalli kallada wa t at
a bar, the punishment of a loss of Hana or to honor the punishment of alcohol when the angel sees the wrong doors. It is by far greater there is no amount of pain or suffering that can we that can be equated
to a second and hellfire.
The punishment of a loss of habitat is greater so no one gets away with anything.
No one gets away with anything.
So this is something that we need to remember.
Brothers and sisters, I said, This principle applies whether you do something good or you do something bad every week, for those of us who recite sort of guff. We are reminded in the story of Southern Musa that Alfredo and Moosa went and reconstructed a wall that was hiding a treasure beneath it, that treasure belong to two orphans, these two orphans it wasn't their virtue, it was not their hard work. The treasure was preserved a loss of Hamlet Alison's one of his greatest prophets, and
one of the greatest men ever, to live on the face of this planet, a righteous man awali over loss of Hannah with Allah, to special individuals, Allah Subhana Allah summons them and they go, and part of their tasco One of the things that they did, even Moosa didn't know what was happening. musasa did not even know what was happening. He thought, okay, you saw a wall that is about to fall down, and then another half to reveal to him later.
The mystery of this wall.
What was the mystery of the wall, the wall was hiding beneath it a treasure, the treasure belong to two orphans.
They were rewarded, their wealth was kept was saved, so that when they grow older, and are old enough to take care of it, they can go dig it out, and enjoy it. And what what are we told in the Quran? What did Allah Subhana Allah say, What can Abu masala Han their father
was a good man.
Right, some of the scholars said it wasn't actually their immediate father. It was their seventh great grandfather. It was the father of their great great grandfather.
Right? So Allah Subhana Allah bless His children all the way until his
greatest grandchildren became orphaned. But even then, Allah Subhana Allah preserve their wealth for them.
That goes beyond that.
where do we find evidence further for this?
Where do we find evidence for this? Brothers and Sisters Mohammed bin Carvalho, he says, telethon salatu salam, ala Mian jihad, Tanzania Isla de there are three things whoever does them will not get away, will not be saved, will not get away with these offenses until they actually come back
bite them until they come back. They're going to come back and he will have to deal with them. There are three things three offenses.
Man makara Alba.
Man makara Oh, Bella, I wanna kiss whoever plots
whoever transgresses and abuses people.
And whoever breaks a promise or a pledge that they make. And then he said, What does Leo haffi ki tabula? He said the confirmation of this is in the book of Allah azza wa jal, and then he quotes three verses from the Quran.
He quotes verse 43, of surah sort of Father,
right sort of 40 Surah 35 verse 43, remember this, you can go look it up. So Allah subhanaw taala talks about the wrongdoers and all of that, and then Allah Subhana, Allah establishes a principle, that principle and this is again a divine law, consistent, it doesn't break. And the principle is what I hear in my crusade. 11.
Right. Allah spoke about those who plotted and and and and they conspired and they thought they were in control of everything, and they thought that they were exploiting everyone and they thought that
They were getting away with it and they thought their their, their intelligence services and their their law enforcement and their armed forces and their their entire apparatus and that their entire power is going to protect them. They thought that they were invincible. They can exploit everyone else they can take advantage of everyone else but nothing is gonna happen to them and they plot it.
They weren't nations By the way, we are not the first people to say stuff like this. There were nations in the past that Allah Subhana Allah wiped out that said, Masha, Allah who is stronger than us were the strongest nation on the face of this planet. And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says the one who created you
wanna marijuana lolly Hola, como por,
but this is this is what happens power and power gets to us. When we think we're, we're smart. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well, a macro Seo ellaby.
But evil plot does not encompass except its own people. It will come back to whoever is plotting.
Right. So this is one. The second verse that he quoted, that we need to be reminded of as well, is that when you transgress against anyone, you're actually transgressing against yourself, you're wrong in yourself. And again, Allah subhanaw taala in Surah 10 verse 23 Surah Hood, right, verse 23, Allah Subhana Allah talks about people who desperately turn to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah when they're in trouble, then Allah Subhana Allah saves them from trouble when they turn to him because Allah subhanaw taala answers to everyone. However, once they make it to safety, once they have been rescued by Allah subhanho wa Taala they go back to their old ways. They start abusing people,
transgressing against people bullying people. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says Phantom jameela, homie
come on out and forsaken, metalhead. Dunya. So melena mo Jericho, Bill combee maccon, from Milan, when Allah subhanho wa Taala. But when a law saves them
at once they commit injustice upon the earth, without a right, they start spreading corruption, they start destroying properties, they start doing, they start causing mayhem, they start causing for their own and they start exploiting other people. Take advantage of other groups, they don't think that it's going to come back to them. But Allah Subhana Allah says, indeed, all mankind, you are injustice is only against yourselves in the value command and for sukham. Right. So whoever transgresses whoever
abuses anyone, a time will come where they will have to pay for that.
For the past few weeks, we've been seeing the headlines.
Right when a man wants to Allah preserve us, may Allah Subhana Allah protect us. And may Allah Subhana Allah to Allah not allow us to slip or fall like this.
May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah not strip us from our human decency. May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah not remove mercy and compassion out of our hearts. May Allah subhanho wa Taala not allow us and not let us become monsters.
For years, right, we're told about a trial where he takes advantage of
and now 150, more than 150 of his victims stood and face him and looked him in the eyes.
What a what a torture,
and then sentenced for 177 170 75 years in prison. And as the judge signs that verdict, she says I'm signing your death warrant.
This is a reminder, for those of us when a parent comes in deceives you He tells you Oh, nobody saw you doing that. And you think you're getting away with it a year, two, three a decade, two decades, three decades. You think helaas you made it. Nobody knew about it. And then of Hamlet comes out
when you are most vulnerable. In the law human
fleet Allah subhanaw taala lures. the wrongdoer sometimes allows people to do things for a short period of time, but until they fall, once they fall once Allah Subhana Allah seizes them, once they're taken, he doesn't let go.
So one has to turn to a loss of Hannah Tana repent.
And no matter how much a person does when they turn to a lion
Repent and redeem themselves, they have a chance but if they don't, at a day will come where their victims are going to have their day in court, either in this life or in the hereafter
in value come around full circle. And then the third one that he mentioned, Rahim Allah was that Monica in America through NFC, whoever breaks or breaches his pledge or promise to Allah subhanho wa Taala he's doing it against himself.
When you make a commitment
and you fail, those that you make commitment to especially when you make a commitment to Allah subhanaw taala a time will come where the commitment that is made to you will be broken.
And you will have to pay for that.
ask Allah subhanaw taala to preserve us and protect us And forgive us.
boo liable. Lions lions with the annual I am Erin ma*a committed to Donna Kudo. Hot and cold was sobre la
hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala evaluated in a soft hour that by the way, there are a lot of stories that we know and at the individual level, a lot of stories from the past. Right? How many times have you heard how many times have we heard in the past? Right? We know some of our companions May Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with him bill and in hubub, they were tortured. What happened to those who torture them, and they thought that they got away with it.
They suffer the consequences of their actions.
Hubbard was able to iron the person that used to iron him.
He didn't even choose to do it. He wasn't trying to take vengeance. But she became ill and sick. And the only cure was for her to be ironed
until to death.
The woman and the woman that used to torture her Barbara de la and she used to burn him
with hot iron rods. She herself died being burnt with high with hot iron
with hot iron.
She herself had to do that. What happened to Amelia who tortured Villa de la hora
who used to drag Bill's body on the Hot sands of Mecca and put hot
rocks and boulders on his chest. His body had to be dragged
at the end of the battle of budget and thrown into the hot desert and into the hot well of better tomato Dino today. How many times have we heard of and have we seen how many times have I myself come in contact with individuals or cases where a child abuses the parents later on, they grow to become abused by their own children, or a parent abuses or neglects his child. And then later on when they are very vulnerable and they need the child, the child is no longer there for them. And they will be abused or neglected.
How many times spouses wronging one another and then things turn around and one of them becomes weak or ill. And now the other one, the one that used to be exploited the one that used to be abused has the upper hand committed enough to that brothers and sisters, let's turn to Allah subhanaw taala repentance, let's bring an end to the injustice of wrongdoing. Right and as I said this happens at the individual level at the community level and it happens unfortunately we have seen nations also fall into this
this pit Mayor loss of Hana this pitfall, by the way, a lot of people I am says one of the one of the areas where most people are deceived is this area they think they get away with it. They think that their sin is forgotten.
He said this this affects even some of the most righteous people and the scholars
one area one area of deception where she upon deceives human beings into making them think that they get away with their offenses, no Allah, Allah, not when the most just is there. So I asked a lot to forgive my sins, and to forgive all of my violations and all of my offenses against anyone and two allow me to redeem myself in this life.
Before I have to face it in the hereafter I asked Allah subhana wa to Allah for forgiveness.
And I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to cover up our faults in our shortcomings. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to help those who are oppressed and give them victory and we ask Allah subhanho to Allah to
to bring an end to the exploitation and the
In justices that are committed against our brothers and sisters, all over the world, and by the way, just one thing, and just just a side note, you know, it's one thing for somebody to do something for their own sake when I add to that, if it's wrong, they don't realize they're actually wronging themselves. But one of the worst forms of injustice is when you side with someone else against other people. It's not even you, like when you support a government, or when you support a tyrant or the president, just because you like them or because you hate the people that they're abusing or because you don't care or because of a jeep. When you ruin your Acura for their dounia this is just this
doesn't make sense.
So not only should you not commit injustice, and you should not wrong people and you should not abuse anyone, you should not side with tyrants and with abusers and you should not be silent.
And if there is not much you can do about it you should resent it in your heart and you should never side or justify side with them or justify their actions Allah Subhana Allah says Allah tala, Catalina Latina varnamo Fatima Sakuma na. Don't lean towards. Don't lean towards the wrongdoers. Don't show any leniency with them. Don't be lenient with them. Don't side with them. Don't support them. don't like them, don't do anything. Stay away from them. You don't want to get in their way stay away from the but don't support them nor justify their actions.
