yeah are you are Ladino doc en la how up all bolus Eddie that also they're not going on Allah coil if you don't know there are many okay now Allah sunnah who felt by the fact that there was an Alima My dear brothers and sisters, someone sent me the following
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 whether it was indeed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which we, the scholars of Hadith could not stablish
or it was set 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, our Kaitlan dedicate rasool Allah, is that going to happen?
Will that ever happen on Messenger of Allah, they were shocked.
So it is said that he said, Yes, and even worse,
Now what do you mean who?
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 forbid, forbidding what is evil?
Talk to our will not often the Handwerker.
And they said that they said, I will dedicate rasool Allah, Will that ever happen? Because they couldn't imagine?
What I shoved him in 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 condition when you will consider vice as virtue? And you consider virtue? Advice?
Can you ever be committed or it
won't come out 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 then 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 subhanho wa taala. And then the silent majority, these other people who didn't really care,
it's 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 my to mean whom limitary Warner co many Lahoma Polycom.
Why bother yourselves with people whom Allah is eventually is going to destroy? Let them up to Allah Subhana Allah will take the male luck 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? Allah subhanaw taala is going 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 matter the return in Arabic come.
When Allah home in town, they said, so that we could have an excuse before and Subhan Allah. They didn't say before our Lord they said before
God Almighty written in Arabic,
Allah Rabina Danny, can you read on
the key room behind her the lady of Florida who
will you very soon? Joven Marcia, were to have Duna who were up Bukom
you remember the antiviral? Allahu Rahmatullah. He said hello, Tara bukem God Almighty rotten Isla Rob decom. Well, Allah homeand tahune. 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 were sitting around doing nothing, condoning the wrongdoing and enabling the wrongdoers. They wanted to remind that this is your Lord, remember this?
Wake up, say something for the sake of your Lord.
Well, Allah, 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 ALLAH SubhanA, Allah is punishment came, Allah subhanaw taala 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. It's one of the qualities and one of the features, and one of the characteristics of our community.
There is consensus amongst the scholars that in joining what is good and forbidding what is evil 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 contemp higher are met in the nurse, 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 Allah azza wa jal actually in the verses in Surah, Allah Quran mentions what makes us special
Morona minima roof what and how we were taught me know, nebula
Subhan 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 in joining 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 what is good and forbid what is evil and it's not based upon faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala what's the point? But Allah Subhana Allah mentions in joining what is good and forbidding what is evil because the context has to do with your role towards humanity. You believing in Allah azza wa jal that's personal that's between you and Allah subhanho wa taala.
For your own good you should believe in Allah subhanaw taala in 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're fulfilling your duty, but also humanity benefits from it.
Other people benefit from it.
And Allah azza wa jal in this verse, speaker is speaking about what our role quantum higher on metal, 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 are supposed to be self correcting as individuals you are 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 Walter coming come in the verses right before this verse there let there be
from amongst you a group this is a collective duty let there be from amongst you a group or material the owner in
a group that will call to that which is good, we're gonna be the model and enjoying or command
what is right way and how not and then woke up and they forbid what is evil
Imam Al Ghazali Rahim Allah said in the AMA Robin Malraux, listen to this.
Among statements I'll just mention a small section of it in the AMA Robin Morrow when he Animoca in indeed in joining what is good and forbidding what is evil? Who won what Bill Dean, it is the greatest principle in their religion.
The religion revolves around it.
It's the most central like it's the central part, the focal part of the religion, who will put will ever move it dean will who will move him will let him tell us Allah who love will never be in Germany. And it is the function or the mission for which Allah subhanho wa Taala summoned and sent all of the prophets.
In a hadith The Prophet 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 Salawat Allahu wa salam, O Allah him, may Allah subhanaw taala His 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 cars and good.
Last elecom Allah Yeah, I don't know the prophets and messengers, I we don't want any reward for me. 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 softer, who
will mean anyone who will know who the authority Naboo was morality? Deanna it AFRIMA
But, 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 or prophethood will come to an end will cease
and the religion will vanish
it will just disappear
alright if God Allah Allah she said that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, more aubema Rafi one How are anil munkar Avila and Teddy Ruffalo, you say jab hola como
la ilaha illa Allah many of us we say why are we making your art we're praying as an OMA we're begging ALLAH SubhanA wa to Allah for relief. We're asking Allah subhanaw taala to rescue us and rescue our brothers and sisters.
We keep calling upon Allah we call out and we cry out to Allah subhanaw taala our drive is not accepted. All right, she said, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 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 it for some divine leader to come down and deliver you and save you.
Your drive may not be answered, well, I had a villa.
So if we want to restore, or if we want to re you know, 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 Subhana Allah says, moon and NASA Bill Bill, what 10 Someone
that Ronal kita there are conditions that are necessary to enjoy the to enjoying what is good and forbidding what is evil we'll talk about that inshallah Allah. We ask Allah azza wa jal to forgive our sins and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to accept it or deeds and help us overcome our weaknesses or shortcomings. A poodle has a code was set for Allah and He will accomplish stuff your way of Allah come in the horn for Rahim.
Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ALA, Sacco that My dear brothers, please move forward and show 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 subhanaw taala praises prophet is married.
And this is the duty of every head of household.
Every father every mother, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada praises him What can Allah Who this solid he was aka what cannot interrupt him or the year 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 said
but what I mean c'mon Quran whoever sees Moncure if you know that there
is evil, and it is agreed upon to be evil. It's not something is clear, black and white.
Mara I mean, comun current failure will be 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, you might not know what 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, it's not going to lead to something greater.
If this doesn't apply, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, For in let me stop there. If you can't, February 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.
The inland yes Delta. 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't 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 salallahu alayhi salam in the Hadith he warned us he said when he was right they were cursed because
Allah subhanaw taala says Laureen and Nadine a couple of bendy straw either Allah decided that with a 70 Imodium then it can be my also what can we do I can relate and I'm gonna I'm gonna carry value. And an example that was given once that an individual will see someone commit atrocities or commit a sin a major sin and they wouldn't be bothered by it initially but then eventually they become desensitized they get used to it and then what fun I am now who Danica in your corner Jalisa who Akira who they hang out together it's fine. You know, I you know I'm not going to judge you.
I'm not going to say anything.
As a matter of fact, now we have people who like,
share and repost
people committing major sins openly.
But the scary part is that it doesn't stop right there. It goes to what that first Hadith that we started the football with. goes it goes through that point where a vise becomes virtue and virtue becomes vice. someone doing something Khaled we look down upon that because it's politically incorrect. It's not trendy. It's embarrassing.
And suddenly doing someone doing what I'm doing joins me I leave them alone Allah Subhana Allah Allahu Akbar.
This is what may happen.
Last but not least, so if you are a hammer Allah said that before you enjoy what is good and forbid what is evil, keep in mind three things. embody the human moral dilemma model when I remove any Hakuna raffia confy my more raffia can FEMA Jana, be gentle,
be gentle and be kind. And I refer you to the hotbar if you haven't attended the hotbar of Sharia sufferers, two or three weeks ago,
be gentle, be kind. Allah Subhana 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. He 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 I said that 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 Allah subhanaw taala sent someone who is better than you to someone who is worse than me. And he is still Allah subhanaw taala told him to be gentle and kind.
What are you talking about? Allah Subhana Allah sent to Musa and Harun Moses and Aaron to Pharaoh
Allah subhanaw taala said to them for hola hola, hola. Hola les in Croatia.
So so if you have a hammer Allah has theory, great scholar says make sure that when you forbid what is evil and you enjoin what is good when you command people to do good and forbid them from doing from saying that you are gentle Rafi and female, more rafiqul female,
number two, adolescent female yet more adult female. Now, 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 that 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, and I didn't a female, I didn't female. Number three, I didn't even be made more adamant female, 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
whatever, you know, it has to be based upon the end and clear knowledge. Right? Jung believed him and yet Moreover, if he went hand in mooncup I Hakuna Rafi a consumer of human like the prophets of salaam Taurus I didn't female yet more I'd love you man.
I'll even be more adamant be man may Allah subhanaw taala make you and I have those who continue to seek knowledge and improve themselves we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us of those who correct themselves those who are humble enough to accept whenever someone corrects them, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to preserve and protect our community and our family members are gonna attina Millennium parameter waiting and I mean everything in our Shuddha are better that was
a legend Kurama in a candle hub APIs Allah in Allah Hammurabi son where eater in Korba when hand fascia you will carry well belly you overcome that I look into the Quran or the Quran Allah has got a commercial guru who are there any I mean he has it come what are the chroma he Akbar?
