00:00:00--> 00:00:09

Today, my dear brothers and sisters, I wanted to talk about a concept mentioned in the Quran something that is very unique to the Quran and the verses that talk about

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

in sort of October verse 36, Allah azza wa jal talks about

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

the count of the months of the year, the lunar year in the shoe holder in the law, he is now short of Shahara.

00:00:26--> 00:00:30

That that a year with Allah azza wa jal is made of 12 months.

00:00:34--> 00:00:40

And then Allah azza wa jal says of them mean how often how long are these months?

00:00:41--> 00:00:43

There are four that are sacred.

00:00:45--> 00:00:46

And we just started

00:00:48--> 00:00:49

these the sacred months.

00:00:52--> 00:01:21

You see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, the Quran doesn't explicitly mention or tell us what these four sacred months are? Quran Allah the Quran sunnah. Mahila assured Hello. Your call min Harbottle. The Quran says four of the 12 lunar months are sacred months. Further the entire year of course is important and sacred but for our sacred they hold very special status. What are these four months?

00:01:23--> 00:01:27

Where is the mention of them? You will only find that in the prophetic tradition.

00:01:28--> 00:02:00

Tell you to see or Colita al Amin Harbhajan from fistula never wait till more Tahara a 3030 and the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thus establishing the status and the importance of sunnah. Without sunnah you can't have the religion. What are the four sacred months? Oh Allah, let the Prophet tell you about it. And the messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam tells us that the four sacred months and I want everyone to pay attention insha Allah to Allah, you don't need your smartphone while you're in the hutzpah inshallah we'll be concluding soon, inshallah.

00:02:01--> 00:02:03

The four sacred months,

00:02:04--> 00:02:23

taught by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam, three of them are consecutive. Come, they come right, right after each other. And one stands alone by itself. So the prophet tells us, the sacred moments are located there, which is this one that has just started few days ago. Don't

00:02:24--> 00:02:31

worry, we'll hit ya. And the month of the ledger, which is next month, where shahada Allah Hilma haram.

00:02:32--> 00:02:36

And the month of Elmo haram, these three months are back to back.

00:02:38--> 00:02:49

Then what Raja? Allah the Boehner Shaban what oh my god, I have one. What are your hola the Boehner Shabana Jumada. And the month of Rajab, the seventh month which is before Shabbat.

00:02:51--> 00:02:54

Right? And so these are the four sacred months.

00:02:56--> 00:02:57

So

00:02:58--> 00:03:08

what is that unique concept that I wanted to discuss with you today? That is mentioned in this verse? So now that we know the sacred month, what does Allah Subhana Allah commanded us to do?

00:03:10--> 00:03:15

Allah azza wa jal says fella totally Morphe hints for SATCOM

00:03:16--> 00:03:33

make sure that you do not wrong yourselves during these months, this sacred period, make sure that you don't wrong yourself. Make sure that you don't do a lot admit to yourself, make sure that you do not you are unjust or unfair to yourself.

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

So the Quran introduces this

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

concept

00:03:41--> 00:03:45

that seems to that appears to be unique to humankind.

00:03:47--> 00:03:53

Allah Subhana Allah in the Quran tells us that we as human beings are capable of wronging ourselves.

00:03:56--> 00:04:02

We are capable of compromising our well being.

00:04:04--> 00:04:07

We are capable of being self destructive.

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

In spite of the fact that Allah azza wa jal has honored us

00:04:13--> 00:04:14

and endowed us

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

with the greatest gift,

00:04:18--> 00:04:29

which is intellect alkyl and the ability to reason and know what is right and what is wrong, yet we human beings, especially when we do not follow divine guidance,

00:04:30--> 00:04:37

have the tendency to wrong ourselves and be self destructive. So Allah Subhana Allah says,

00:04:38--> 00:04:42

Don't be self destructive, and especially in these four months.

00:04:43--> 00:04:45

What does it take

00:04:46--> 00:04:46

for us?

00:04:48--> 00:04:56

other than Allah azza wa jal decried, declaring these four months, months where you're not even supposed to be self destructive. You're not supposed to run yourself.

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

So the question here that begs itself is

00:05:00--> 00:05:06

is how, how could one be so unjust so unfair

00:05:07--> 00:05:09

to himself or herself?

00:05:10--> 00:05:27

How long can an elderly man insane on EFSA cave? Allah azza wa jal in the Quran over and over again in the Quran tells us that human beings are self destructive, and they have tendency to wrong themselves. In America, Allah Subhanallah you will do well given

00:05:28--> 00:05:31

that we have presented a man of trust

00:05:32--> 00:05:37

to the heavens, earth, and the mountains 5am in the house,

00:05:38--> 00:05:40

and they declined to receive it.

00:05:42--> 00:05:42

Realizing

00:05:44--> 00:05:45

how heavy it is,

00:05:47--> 00:06:01

and that they're not capable of carrying this trust. We're hemella Helene Hassan and human being accepted it and received it in the whole kind of illumine Jehovah and indeed Allah Subhana Allah says, man is

00:06:02--> 00:06:04

capable of severely wronging himself.

00:06:06--> 00:06:21

Allah azza wa jal in the Quran over and over again when he talks about people who have earned the Wrath of Allah azza wa jal says while I'm out while I'm now what I can count on him avoiding me, or why am i Well, I'm not when I can one on one for him. We did not wrong them, they are wrong themselves.

00:06:23--> 00:06:28

We as human beings have a long history of doing things that are self destructive of wronging ourselves.

00:06:30--> 00:06:31

The first

00:06:33--> 00:06:34

was that

00:06:35--> 00:06:36

of Adam Alayhis Salam

00:06:38--> 00:06:41

that led to Adam being expelled from Jana.

00:06:43--> 00:06:56

And then we continued this pattern as human beings. So we are capable of being self destructive of wronging ourselves. So Allah azza wa jal tells us do not wrong yourselves. And by the way, even some of the best of us,

00:06:57--> 00:07:28

right? Allah subhanaw taala says, so lucky to have another, you know, I mean, Eva ADINA, that we have given the book to those whom we have chosen of Our servants, people receive the Quran and people, you know, memorize it, and all of that, and Allah azza wa jal says, and they are divided into three categories, even the best. I mean, one of them, Wally Malinowski, he, someone who is wronging himself, may Allah subhanaw taala help you and I overcome this, this issue and this challenge.

00:07:29--> 00:07:31

So what are the kinds of things that we do,

00:07:33--> 00:07:43

in which we wrong ourselves, that we need to really take a hard look at our pattern of behavior, lifestyle, and some of our bad habits

00:07:45--> 00:07:48

and make a change, a conscious change,

00:07:49--> 00:07:52

especially in these sacred days.

00:07:53--> 00:08:00

of them? Is our lack or our inability to control our emotions,

00:08:01--> 00:08:05

too, to control our temperament and get angry.

00:08:07--> 00:08:08

of them

00:08:09--> 00:08:09

are

00:08:11--> 00:08:23

some of these diseases of the heart that cause us to transgress against other people? Because something that many of us don't realize when you wronged others, you're actually wronging yourself?

00:08:24--> 00:08:33

I'll give you an example from the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, How hard have we worked? Or do people work in the month of Ramadan?

00:08:34--> 00:08:38

And in the days after the month of Ramadan, and in hajj,

00:08:39--> 00:09:10

or preparing for Hajj many people, they work so hard, read the Quran earn good deeds, every opportunity there is for them to give sadaqa they do. Why because especially believers and today I am indeed addressing the believers, and I hope to be one of them. I'm addressing us, my dear brothers and sisters, those of us who want to earn Allah subhanaw taala as pleasure those of us who want to save themselves from a very painful punishment on the Day of Judgment, those of us who want to save

00:09:11--> 00:09:12

ourselves and our family.

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

From

00:09:16--> 00:09:28

a day Allah azza wa jal says, On that day, nothing will be of any benefit. You Oh my God, I am so mad when I've been on your wealth nor your children will be of any benefit eliminate Allah have you been studying?

00:09:29--> 00:09:35

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us how we engage in these self destructive habits.

00:09:37--> 00:09:42

He talks about a person who will who will come on the Day of Judgment with piles of good deeds.

00:09:44--> 00:09:44

Yet

00:09:46--> 00:09:47

in their lifetime,

00:09:48--> 00:09:57

they have wronged people and the others lashed back at people abused this person and that person

00:09:59--> 00:09:59

walked all over.

00:10:00--> 00:10:13

or other people exploited people took advantage of them, thinking that they're doing themselves a favor, and in fact they were wrong. And in some cases, maybe people know that they're wrong someone else, but in fact they were wronging themselves.

00:10:15--> 00:10:22

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that this individual will come on the Day of Judgment with all of these offenses.

00:10:23--> 00:10:31

And then on the Day of Judgment, Allah azza wa jal will allow their victims and they are victims. Every person that we backbite is a victim,

00:10:33--> 00:10:38

whose flesh we consume. Every person that we lie to is a victim.

00:10:39--> 00:10:42

Every person that we physically,

00:10:43--> 00:10:46

verbally or emotionally abused is a victim.

00:10:47--> 00:10:50

Every person we violate is a victim.

00:10:51--> 00:11:00

So all these victims, Allah azza wa jal will allow them access to this individual's good deeds, once they make a claim and their claim is established.

00:11:03--> 00:11:10

When no one will be able to use any excuse, and these individuals will come and they would want their good deeds or they would want to be redeemed.

00:11:12--> 00:11:34

And Allah azza wa jal will allow them to access and this individual due to these bad habits, or that individuals failure to control their bad habits and their emotions now will have to pay on that day, out of their good deeds out of their hard earned good deeds on a day where an individual will wish hope and be willing to give up

00:11:35--> 00:11:49

his entire wealth and everything that he works so hard for except their good deeds, everything else you're doing would you remove law we have studied him and other beyond me that not only their wealth, but also they would give up their family and everything.

00:11:50--> 00:11:59

When I Nicoline, FC Mavala, whenever anelli cleanups in Bournemouth, Marfil RGJ me and want me to the home I will have to be

00:12:01--> 00:12:22

so on that day people, money is not going to be of any value. Family family relations will be of any value. Right? On that day, the currency, the only currency that would matter our good deeds. So people come and they start taking away from this individual until this person runs out of funds are these

00:12:24--> 00:12:29

the only thing that can be redeemed and that person will be dragged to hellfire will hire the biller.

00:12:30--> 00:12:36

And that's when the individual realizes that his pattern of his bad habits,

00:12:38--> 00:12:50

his offenses, things that he didn't care much about things that she didn't pay attention to and didn't care what it does to other people, thus the day when it will come and haunt them.

00:12:51--> 00:12:54

And on that day, they realize how much they have wronged themselves.

00:12:56--> 00:12:58

So my dear brothers and sisters, we have an opportunity

00:12:59--> 00:13:15

to really take a hard look at our lifestyles, behavior or pattern of behavior. Rather than say, What have I What are the things that I'm doing? In which I'm really wronging myself

00:13:16--> 00:13:19

and ruining my relationship with Allah subhanaw taala for

00:13:20--> 00:13:24

and can I, Allah azza wa jal has invited me during the sacred months

00:13:26--> 00:13:26

to

00:13:27--> 00:13:29

bring that to an end.

00:13:31--> 00:13:33

And ask Allah Subhana Allah for forgiveness.

00:13:34--> 00:13:43

May Allah subhanaw taala make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of who they listen to a cooler head on polar software. Hola. Hola. Welcome. facil ferrovia Fila Camino hula for all Rahim

one of the most destructive habits, something that the Prophet SAW Selim warned us of. And unfortunately nowadays, especially with social media and the way

00:14:20--> 00:14:24

our social relations have been

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

structured.

00:14:27--> 00:14:30

Many people engage in this bad behavior.

00:14:34--> 00:14:37

00:15:06--> 00:15:09

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us

00:15:10--> 00:15:12

of going after people's faults

00:15:14--> 00:15:16

and trying to expose them

00:15:19--> 00:15:20

problems and warned us of this.

00:15:22--> 00:15:31

It's one of the most destructive and unfortunately, something that people find to be entertaining to seek news about other people's

00:15:32--> 00:15:35

scandals or a scandalous

00:15:37--> 00:15:42

you know, news about other people and try to expose them and investigate and go after their faults.

00:15:44--> 00:15:47

It's just it's an ugly habit that No one

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

enjoys being the target of

00:15:51--> 00:15:55

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

for God. And he said, Yeah, man, I shall be discerning or you who have proclaimed to accept Islam with your tongues. Those who claim to be Muslim verbally.

00:16:50--> 00:16:56

Whether you've lived email in Appleby, yet a man did not make its way to their hearts

00:17:04--> 00:17:05

that was honestly mean

00:17:07--> 00:17:10

don't not harm or abuse Muslims.

00:17:12--> 00:17:13

When asked where are you home,

00:17:15--> 00:17:17

do not put them down or mark them

00:17:19--> 00:17:31

well as a taboo at him and do not go after their faults, trying to expose it to trying to expose them. They know whom into tab.

you know who will feed young Pharaoh and whosoever Allah goes after his or her fool to expose them, Allah will expose them, even if they are in the middle or in the privacy of their own residence, place of residence. Don't think that anything heights Allah subhanaw taala will bring it all out, if not in dunya in Africa.

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

So my dear brothers and sisters,

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

this religion

00:18:21--> 00:18:24

invites us to be the best version of ourselves

and be kind and be

00:18:29--> 00:18:32

righteous, with ourselves and with each other.

00:18:33--> 00:18:37

And if we have something positive to do or provide,

00:18:39--> 00:18:45

or bring to someone or to say, then to jump on it, and if not,

00:18:46--> 00:18:51

right to hold off and maintain our peace and or our silence.

00:18:53--> 00:18:55

May Allah subhanaw taala make you have those

00:18:56--> 00:19:01

who listen and follow the best of what they listen to. May Allah help you and I overcome our weaknesses and our shortcomings.
