statement, which was attributed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And what caught my attention was that when I read it,
it sounded so real.
Yet, when I looked it up
the chain of the Hadith, which was collected in Muslim, Allah was not authentic, it was weak, yet the meaning of it, whoever said it, whether it's attributed to the promises and them whether it was indeed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which we, the scholars of Hadith could not stablish
or it was said by Abu hurayrah, or one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam This is an old statement.
Yet it sounds very interesting.
And I was intrigued by it, and I want to share with you the meaning of it.
So, it is said that
the Prophet said,
Oh people, how
would be your condition? Or your situation? How bad would it be when your women will rebel and your youth?
Will sin openly?
So it is said that they said, I will Caitlin delicate rasulillah is that going to happen?
Will that ever happen? Almost you have a lot they were shocked.
So it is said that he said yes. And even worse
how bad would it be when your condition will reach to a point where you're going to abandon stop enjoying what is good and for a bit forbidding what is evil?
Talk to me, often the handwerker
and they said that they said our kind of delicate rasulillah will that ever happen? Because they couldn't imagine?
What I shall determine who and he said no, it will be even worse.
Okay If I become you know, how would it be? If you get to a point where How will How bad is it? When you get to a point or a condition when you will consider vice as virtue? And you consider virtue advice?
Can you febrile comida
mukarram are often well Moreover,
Does this sound familiar?
Does it sound familiar?
In the story of the Sabbath, in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala
that those who violated the Sabbath
they had other people that were seeing what they were doing.
And the community divided into two groups, those who did not engage in the violation itself. Those who didn't participate. The bystanders, the spectators
And in a way, maybe some people who were part of that community,
the good people, divided into two groups,
a small group, a minority of people who were outspoken, who spoke against the wrongdoing,
who are trying to save their community
who were trying to make a difference, and bring them back to Allah subhana wa to Allah, and then the silent majority, these other people who didn't really care,
none of our business, let them do whatever they want. As a matter of fact, these people who were silent or were passive and didn't do anything, they actually spoke against something. They didn't speak against the evil that was being done or the sin that was committed. But they rather instead they spoke against
the proactive callers to what is good, those who are trying to forbid evil. So when they finally spoke against something and they took the initiative to say something it was actually projected or directed at those who were trying to make a difference and correct the situation. What do you call it? Oh metal mean home limitary una COVID Manila home Hola, como de Bahama dementia either.
Why bother yourselves with people whom Allah eventually is going to destroy that them up to Allah Subhana Allah will take the male a person who cares, right? Why are you trying to basically correct their behavior? Why are you trying to teach them?
Why bother? Why waste your time with these people and loss of habitat as well to destroy them anyways?
Allah is going to punish them severely.
Now those who were active or proactive and wanted to correct their community and wanted to help their community, they said, I don't know the rotten in Arabic come
when I'm the home in town, they said so that we could have an excuse before and Subhanallah they didn't say before our Lord they said before your Lord
God Almighty written in Arabic America, Allah rabina Yannick
with Akira Vienna has a lady Yasuda who
will very soon move in Mercia way to huduma, who rokoko
Jamberry, enter varro Mattila buco Tato Moroccan Arabic, Allah Allah momento.
So they said to them, so that we could on the Day of Judgment, have an excuse, or apologize to your Lord.
And they intentionally use the word your Lord. They didn't say Our Lord. He's Of course, obviously your Lord is my Lord. He's our Lord, but they wanted they wanted to remind these passive people who are sitting around doing nothing condoning the wrongdoing and enabling their own doors. They wanted to remind them this is your Lord, remember this?
Wake up, say something for the sake of your Lord.
Allah Allah momento, and perhaps, maybe they will be admonished. Maybe they will listen. Maybe Allah will guide them, maybe they will benefit from the reminder, maybe we can lessen the evil and increase the good. We were doing our part.
Allah Subhana Allah tells us in these verses that when eventually a loss of habitat as punishment came, a loss of habitat took out everyone.
Those who actually violated the Sabbath, those who engaged in the action, and those who were silent, saw them do whatever they did, and they didn't care. They may have even directly or indirectly benefited from what they were doing.
Brothers and sisters, the reason I'm saying this is because we now live in a time, where not only are we abandoning, or are we stopping this very
key quality is one of the qualities and one of the features, and one of the characteristics of our community.
There is consensus amongst the scholars that enjoining what is good and forbidding what is evil to speaking against evil.
calling people to that which is good or right.
advocacy, standing up for the truth, standing up for justice, standing up for the week, standing up against or to
tyranny and wrongdoing and injustice. speaking against sins, speaking
Against immorality, condemning sins and wrongdoing, especially that which has an effect on the entire society
is one of the basic and one of the essential qualities and duties of a believer.
And one of the features of the Muslim community, Allah subhanho wa Taala says kuntum hydrometeor leanness, you were you are indeed, the best community that was brought out for mankind. What made us special? What is it?
It's not our ethnicity, it's not. So a lot of us are actually in the verses in Surah. Allah and Ron mentions, what makes us special.
morona Villa maruf.
Allah Subhana Allah before even reminding us that we believe in Allah subhanaw taala says, You enjoy in what is good, and you forbid, what is evil and you believe in Allah.
So which one is more important? believing in Allah subhanaw taala or enjoying what is good and forbidding? What is evil? I'm asking, obviously, believing in Allah subhanho wa Taala that's the foundation if you enjoy and what is good and forbid what is evil and it's not based upon faith in Allah subhana wa Tada, what's the point? But Allah Subhana Allah mentions enjoining what is good and forbidding what is evil because the context has to do with your role towards humanity. You believing in Allah as an agent that's personal that's between you and Allah Subhana Allah to Allah.
For your own good you should believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala and joining what is good and forbidding what is evil is what I duty that who benefits from it. One you you benefit from it because you are fulfilling your duty, but also humanity benefits from it.
Other people benefit from it.
And Allah azza wa jal in this verse speech is a speaking about what our role quantum higher omega rejet leanness, you are brought out for mankind. You are not a community that is meant to just be preoccupied with its own affairs, right? Keep itself in its own shell or cocoon and just forget about what is happening to the rest of the world. You're supposed to be self correcting as individuals you're supposed to be self correcting as a community, you you enjoy what is good and forbid what is evil amongst yourselves and then you advocate you go beyond yourselves.
You go above and beyond Allah azza wa jal says what is coming Come in the verses right before this verse, there let there be
from amongst you a group This is collective duty, let there be from amongst you a group or material owner in
a group that will call to that which is good, where we want to be tomorrow and enjoying or Command
what is right way and how Nonnenmacher and they forbid what is evil.
Mmm Azadi Rahim Allah said in an admirable mouth, listen to this.
Among statement, I'll just mention a small section of it in the AMA Robin Morrow,
indeed, in joining what is good and forbidding what is evil, who will put will have a movie Dean, it is the greatest principle in the religion.
The religion revolves around it.
It's the most central is the central part, the focal part of the religion, who will put will ever move it Dean will who will move him Mullah de terras Allahu Allahu Nabina ajmeri. And it is the function or the mission for which Allah subhanho wa Taala summoned and sent all of the profits.
In a healthy profit. I said I said, 124,000 prophets,
Allah Subhana, Allah sent them to save humanity, from wrongdoing and from sinning and from going down the wrong path.
Allah Subhana Allah sent all of these prophets and they went through whatever they went through salatu wa salam, O Allah, may Allah Subhana, Allah is peace and blessings be upon them to bring back humanity to the right path to a path that is balanced. That is correct. That is good. Stay away from self destructive behavior for humanity's own cause and good
luck as a local manager of the prophets and messengers, I we don't want any award from you. We're not asking for anything. It's for your own good from an episode of NFC. It is for your own good, correct your behavior.
So, and then he says, Well, I will be bizarre to who
were of Miller, who were Emmylou. takala tinubu was mahallesi Deanna afrima
And he says if we do not function
if people abandon this seeking the knowledge of enjoying what is good and forbidding what is evil, and if they're not, you know, the function of it comes to an end. then guess what, Nobu Prophethood will come to an end we'll see.
And the religion will vanish.
It will just disappear.
All right, Chateau de la Anna. She said that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Morrow bill Murphy one Whoa, Anil mooncup tabla and Ted Ruffalo jellico
many of us we say why are we making your outward praying as an oma? We're begging and lots of hands on with Allah for relief. We're asking Allah subhanaw taala to rescue us and rescue our brothers and sisters.
We keep calling upon a low we call out and we cry out to Allah Subhana Allah our dryer is not accepted. I said, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said that enjoying what is good and forbid what is evil before you reach a point where when you call upon Allah azza wa jal you will not be answered. Allah would not respond to you.
Because when there were when there was a cause, for which you were called Allah azza wa jal invited you to enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil and assume your leadership position in the world, as a community,
you didn't care.
So now when you finally get in trouble, and you find yourselves in a dilemma, right, because of your own doing, and your own shortcomings and your own disunity, and your own actions and deeds, now you call upon Allah subhanaw taala for divine intervention, for some kind of miracle to come down for for some divine leader to come down and deliver you and save you.
You may not be answered when I had a villa.
So if we want to restore, or if we want to re we need to go back to this to all of our basics in the religion, one of the most essential basics is this.
That we have to go back.
Wait. And, and obviously many people say, Well, the reason I don't do this and I don't bother is because I myself, I need a lot of correction. I need to be
brothers and sisters, one of the best ways
to correct ourselves. Right? Because when you do enjoy what is good and you forbid what is evil, we're not talking about you going bossing people around and telling them what is wrong with them without looking into yourself. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala says that moon and NASA will be what 10 someone for sarcoma, and from that Luna kita there are conditions that are necessary to enjoy to enjoying what is good and forbidding what is evil we'll talk about that in sha Allah tala. We ask Allah to forgive our sins and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to accept or deeds and help us overcome our weaknesses or shortcomings. A Buddha has a coda sulfuryl lovely welcome. First of all, we have Villa
come in the hula photo Rahim.
Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala ala Sahaba, my dear brothers, please move forward and shovel and fill in all the gaps.
Now we understand that it's important for us to
assume this responsibility of ours of enjoying what is good and forbidding what is evil.
And we obviously have to start with ourselves, calling ourselves to that which is good and forbidding ourselves from that which is evil. And then
those who are directly under our authority, our family members, Allah subhanho wa Taala praises, Prophet is married.
And this is the duty of every head of household.
Every father, every mother, Allah subhanho wa Taala praises him What can this Salatu was occur? What can I interrupt him earlier? He used to enjoin and command his family, the members of his household to pray and to give zakat.
He obviously lead by example, but he also made sure to check in with them and teach them that as early as you can.
And then you go beyond that, anytime you see something evil being done, speak against it.
However, before you speak,
when you see something wrong, keep this hadith in mind, in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said,
Bro, I mean come on Quran whoever sees Moncure if you know that there
is evil, and it is agreed upon to be evil. It's not something. It's clear, black and white.
Mara, I mean, kumeu current failure, it is your duty to change it physically if you can, if you have the authority, or if that's the only way to change it.
Let me repeat this again, remember, no, he says, you change it physically. One, if you have the authority, if you don't have the authority, you can't do that. Right authority or ability. Number two,
right? If that is the only way you can change it. In other words, if you can change it through non violent, non physical manner, by simply advising, then you shouldn't really resort to that to that option. That's the only way you can change number three, if you changing it physically or yourself, right is not going to lead to something greater.
If this doesn't apply, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says for him your stutter, if you can, totally Sani with your tongue, speak against it. Right against it. Make your position clear. advocate teach people, you may not be able to stop it fully. But you will at least be able to warn people against it. Don't let it spread.
For Islamia stutter, if you can't, you don't have the capacity, you don't have the ability
to convey then at least with your heart, deep inside, at least make sure that you as an individual, you will remain to be against this if you can't.
And it is said the scholar said that if someone cannot for some reason, if you don't have the ability to change something or to correct it, and you have no means to do it. The least that you are responsible to do is to maintain resentment and hatred and be against it. don't support it. don't condone it. Speak. If you can speak against it, at least rejected within you. Don't allow yourself to become desensitized.
And do not accept if someone comes to you and says Well, why do you bother? Don't worry. No, no, no. It should bother you. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Hadith he warned us he said when we arrived they were cursed because
Allah subhanaw taala says Lorraine and Medina cavora. In benissa, Isla de sanita with over a 70 Malian Valley can be met also what can we do one can relate and I hope that I'm carrying value. And an example that was given was that an individual will see someone commit atrocities or commit a sin a major sin and they will be bothered by it initially, but then eventually they become desensitized. They get used to it. And then what fun I am not who Danica Hakuna jalisa who Akira who they hang out together, it's fine. You know, I you know, I'm not gonna judge you.
I'm not going to say anything.
As a matter of fact, now we have people who like,
people committing major sins openly.
But the scary part is that it doesn't stop right there. It goes through what that first heading is that we started the football with. goes, it goes through that point where vice becomes virtue and virtue becomes vice. Someone doing something Heller we look down upon that because it's politically incorrect. It's not trendy. It's embarrassing.
And certainly doing someone doing don't judge me or leave them alone.
This is what may happen.
Last but not least, so if you know him, Allah said that before you enjoy what is good and forbid what is evil, keep in mind three things. Again, Billy Neiman Yeah, Motorola Moto, Moto, ne akuna raha confy. My more raffia can FEMA.
be gentle and be kind and I refer you to the hook but if you haven't attended the hautbois of Shiatsu festival, two or three weeks ago, be gentle, be kind, Allah Subhana Allah, Allah sent Musa alayhis salam and Harun to Pharaoh,
the tyrant, you know, someone came to I believe Abu Jaffa and he said to him, I'm going to advise you, he's talking to the head of the sea. The most powerful man in his time said, I'm going to give you advice, I'm going to admonish you, but I'm going to be really harsh. So please, tolerate. So it says laugh, but he said, I will not accept said why.
You're not humble enough to accept it. You think? No, no, no. He said, because I lost him how to add a sense someone who is better than you to someone who's worse than me. And he still Allah Subhana Allah told him to be gentle and kind.
So what are you talking about? Allah subhanaw taala sent Moosa and Harun Moses and Aaron to Pharaoh
Allah subhanaw taala said to them for all Allahu Allah lay in an Allah
so Sophia Rahim Allah says every great scholar says, make sure that when you forbid what is evil and you enjoy what is good when you command people to do good and forbid them from doing from sending that you are gentle Rafi on female, female, female,
number two, adolescent female, more as a female, you have to be just you have to be fair, you have to make sure that what you're telling them is correct. accurate, agreed upon, it's really the right thing. Right.
And you have to make sure that what you're telling people not to do is really something bad. It's not just something that you just don't like you detest it doesn't like really, you know, it's not part of your taste. It's not part of your culture. No, it's really something that is condemned and agreed upon, if there is room for for differences of opinions, then I added a few more i'd love Humana number three and even be made more adamant be made, you have to have knowledge.
Whenever you forbid, or whenever you command or whenever you forbid, it has to be based on knowledge, it cannot just be based on your own whims and desires and again, taste or you know,
whatever, you know, it has to be based upon the in clear knowledge. Right? Yeah, but really man yet Mervyn Murphy went hand in mocha. akuna raffia confy My Mercy of human like the process of them taught us, adolescent female more I love you man.
And even more, and even the man may Allah subhanaw taala make you an eye of those who continue to seek knowledge and improve themselves. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to make us of those who correct themselves those who are humble enough to accept whenever someone corrects them. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to preserve and protect our community in our family members are going to act in a million kilometer memory in our shadow
