in our Rasulullah, who has a hose and alima

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

My dear brothers and sisters.

00:01:25--> 00:01:26

If there is one,

00:01:27--> 00:01:44

single element, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam feared more than anything, after shirk, after associating partners with a loss of habitat after falling into that state of disbelief

00:01:46--> 00:01:51

was something that comes next to that in terms of its gravity.

00:01:54--> 00:01:56

Something that is so evil.

00:01:57--> 00:01:59

Yet, sometimes

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

it's missed the symptoms and the signs can be missed.

00:02:05--> 00:02:08

So disease, spiritual disease.

00:02:10--> 00:02:15

It was so terrifying. the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:02:16--> 00:02:26

used to fear and the prophecy sort of taught them to actually ask Allah Subhana Allah to protect them from it and to read them from it.

00:02:28--> 00:02:31

And that disease is the disease of hypocrisy.

00:02:34--> 00:02:40

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after the death of the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam,

00:02:41--> 00:02:51

many men kept. He was the he was a confidant of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he kept many secrets.

00:02:52--> 00:03:04

And he was aware, the prophet SAW, Selim identified certain people a lot as revealed to His Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, what was in the hearts of these individuals, and who they knew.

00:03:07--> 00:03:14

And when our model the law, one, became the halifa, became in charge. He asked where they fit, he said, Who are they?

00:03:15--> 00:03:24

Who's left of these people? I want to know. So I can be aware of, and he said, I can't reveal that. That's a secret of the province law so that I can reveal that.

00:03:27--> 00:03:40

But I'm going to actually want it to know. So they said that variation say that I'm going to say to him, okay, if you don't tell me if you can't tell me who they are, at least tell me. Am I one of them?

00:03:43--> 00:03:58

Was I one of them? And he said, No, you're not, obviously, and I'm always thankful and grateful and humbled by that lovely Allahu Allah, that shows how much they feared it will welcome and humble Abu Bakar here is one of the companions of the promises I love calling himself

00:03:59--> 00:04:07

hypocrite, am I am I am I are the symptoms of hypocrisy. He was so worried. He noticed the pattern about himself.

00:04:09--> 00:04:26

So said in Africa, hamdulillah. And obaku said to him Hello, today, you can say that. Why would you say that about yourself? He said, worker, you know, whenever we, whenever I'm with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my Eman level is just through the roof. I'm

00:04:27--> 00:04:34

whenever he speaks to us about Hellfire and about Jenna. It's as if we see as if we can actually sense it.

00:04:36--> 00:04:39

That's how much we believe. It's as if it's something that we can actually

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

sense and experience.

00:04:44--> 00:04:58

That's how real it becomes when we are with him. So allow yourself to listen to what he has to say. They are behind me. Salalah honey, listen. But then when we go home, and then we start getting distracted with our livelihood.

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

We forget

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

We're not there anymore.

00:05:02--> 00:05:04

So this must be a sign of hypocrisy.

00:05:06--> 00:05:08

Now look, I said, Whoa, wait a minute,

00:05:10--> 00:05:11

I get the same.

00:05:13--> 00:05:25

You know, I experienced the same thing. I'm having the same issues. So they went to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with this complaint in the province. I said and reassure them, that that is not a sign of hypocrisy. That's normal.

00:05:27--> 00:05:30

That's a sign of email. Email fluctuates.

00:05:31--> 00:05:56

Obviously, when you are in a good environment, and imagine, you know, being with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speaking to him directly listening from him, some of them directly, of course, your email level will be at its highest. So he told them that this is not, this is not an issue that they should worry about. But this shows this narration shows that how worried they were

00:05:57--> 00:05:58

of hypocrisy.

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

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:06:04--> 00:06:07

taught them from what Allah has revealed in the Quran.

00:06:08--> 00:06:15

And he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, from what Allah Subhana Allah is wired him with, what the signs of hypocrisy are?

00:06:17--> 00:06:34

What are the signs? What are the qualities, and of course, the owner that the scholars made a distinction, they said, there are two levels of hypocrisy. There's a major hypocrisy, which is the which basically, is a state of disbelief. So when someone does not believe,

00:06:35--> 00:06:38

they don't believe, however, they pretend

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

as if they believe they claim

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

that they believe but deep inside they don't believe they know, they know that they don't believe, but they claim to be believers. That's, that's a major. And that's a major, you know, theological

00:06:58--> 00:07:03

hypocrisy. And then there is another type of hypocrisy, which is a minor for

00:07:05--> 00:07:08

practically speaking, people don't

00:07:09--> 00:07:11

watch how they behave.

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

They have character flaws, and they have

00:07:16--> 00:07:18

traits, or traces of hypocrisy

00:07:21--> 00:07:30

in the way they talk, and the way they act and the way they carry themselves, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam identified these signs.

00:07:31--> 00:07:51

So it becomes the struggle of the believer to watch himself and monitor himself or herself, and make sure that they don't have they don't show any signs of hypocrisy. And if they do, then they attend to it, they tackle it, they deal with it,

00:07:52--> 00:08:07

they try to see what are the root causes of this? Where is this coming from? Is this characteristic, a characteristic or of hypocrisy? If it is, then how can I rid myself of it? How can I protect myself from it?

00:08:09--> 00:08:11

Because some of them are deeply rooted.

00:08:12--> 00:08:34

And again, none of us is, is perfect. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Quran, identify some of the Actually, these signs of hypocrisy, and I won't be able to cover all of them, you know, some Allah, you know, say that there are 40 signs, I'm gonna say that they're 30 signs, you know.

00:08:36--> 00:08:48

But you'll find them scattered in the plan. And you will also find them in the statements of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So today, I want to share with you some of the signs that could be very prevalent.

00:08:50--> 00:08:56

Right, and I hope that they are not indicative of a major type of hypocrisy.

00:08:58--> 00:09:13

I hope that that is not the case. I hope we're, if we're suffering or dealing with hypocrisy, then it's minor forms of it. And I hope that a loss of Hannah Montana will help us overcome this challenge.

00:09:15--> 00:09:24

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, or actually Allah Subhana, Allah to Allah in the Quran, tells us that hypocrites lie in the prophets. I seldom says that as well.

00:09:25--> 00:09:25

lying.

00:09:27--> 00:09:32

When they utter a word when they say something when they make a statement is false.

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

It's not accurate.

00:09:35--> 00:09:46

Right, lying is, according to some scholars, even taymiyah was reported to have said that lying is a pillar from among the pillars of disbelief.

00:09:48--> 00:09:51

The primary that the trademark,

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

the foundation, of, of hypocrisy is false. Telling lies and that's

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

Why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Hadith says I atonality, Salah the signs of a hypocrite are three. And the first one that he mentions is that

00:10:12--> 00:10:13

he speaks he lies

00:10:15--> 00:10:20

they can hardly say anything that is true or accurate, accurate, right?

00:10:21--> 00:10:25

And I learned so gently in the end in a sutra titled and monaci

00:10:27--> 00:10:32

Allah subhanaw taala in the very first verse in the sutra establishes the fact that

00:10:33--> 00:10:53

hypocrites by default, by definition, hypocrites are liars. Well, La Jolla shadow in Amman africaine Allah caribou, Allah subhanho wa Taala witnesses. Allah does witness that the hypocrites are indeed liars.

00:10:54--> 00:11:00

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warns us of lying, don't lie, under any circumstances.

00:11:02--> 00:11:06

When the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came back from tabuk.

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

Those who stayed behind

00:11:13--> 00:11:21

came to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam they had, and they made all kinds of excuses except three companions. They did not make an excuse, they came and they confessed.

00:11:22--> 00:11:31

And they told the Prophet Allah they sent him the truth that they were procrastinating or they, they just didn't prepare themselves, and they failed.

00:11:32--> 00:11:35

They failed and they had no excuse whatsoever.

00:11:36--> 00:11:50

And they did not lie to the Prophet sallallahu It was said that they were exonerated. They were praised by Allah subhanaw taala their repentance was accepted, their story will be told until the end of time, Alonzo just praise them in the Quran.

00:11:51--> 00:12:10

Allah subhanaw taala praise the companions, all of them. But these three were singled out Allah Subhana Allah mentioned them in a separate verse, to show their status, who Allah, Allah, Allah in a holy fool, because they spoke the truth. And one of them said that I knew that if I was to lie to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam like the 80 something people

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

did.

00:12:13--> 00:12:37

And the prophet SAW Selim accepted their excuse, and they were mine. I knew that Allah subhanaw taala would expose me and that's indeed that's that's what happened and loss of habitat expose those people who like to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah subhanho wa Taala condemned them, and they were labeled as hypocrites. And that was one of the most clear signs that these individuals

00:12:39--> 00:12:51

who were part of that group that failed to share to join the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and had no excuse that they were hypocrites. They were known. After that they were known

00:12:52--> 00:13:08

and assumed expose them. And Allah subhanho wa Taala cursed them in the Quran. And Allah subhanaw taala told his prophet, do not ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive them anymore. And even if you were to ask Allah to forgive them, 70 times Allah somehow will not forgive them.

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

So they were condemned.

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

And label and Allah Subhana Allah to Allah save these, these three competitors, one of them

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

says

00:13:21--> 00:13:31

that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah perhaps saved me, because me because of because of my commitment to the truth, I spoke the truth, I wasn't going to lie to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:13:33--> 00:13:38

So brothers and sisters, that's a very clear signs that we should be

00:13:40--> 00:13:44

aware of. And we should see, examine yourself.

00:13:45--> 00:13:48

You know, how often do you lie? Why do you lie

00:13:50--> 00:13:57

is lying something easy? And if that's the case, then you need to be careful and catch yourself.

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

Be careful

00:14:00--> 00:14:02

and make sure that you treat this disease.

00:14:04--> 00:14:05

Another

00:14:06--> 00:14:16

quality of theirs is that they deceive. Which is very similar to lying, except that it's different. They're very deceptive.

00:14:17--> 00:14:28

deception is an art. You know, to them. deception is an art. to them. deception is a talent. They're proud of their ability to deceive.

00:14:30--> 00:14:31

they brag about it.

00:14:32--> 00:14:37

Right? It's not accidental. No, no, it's it's intentional.

00:14:38--> 00:14:52

Allah Subhana Allah in the Quran, again condemned them. They try to deceive a law and the believers. They try to deceive the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But Allah Subhana Allah says that they only deceive themselves.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

And another Allah Subhana tada says is Allah who is who deceives them

00:15:01--> 00:15:10

Cuz he makes it forget themselves and who they are in that mode if you do know law, how do they play games with a loss of Hannah wattana

00:15:13--> 00:15:19

you hide your own a lot when Latina Amano in Surat Al Baqarah, Allah Subhana, Allah says

00:15:22--> 00:15:36

in Busan, but they are in reality deceiving themselves. They deceive a loss of Hannah what to Allah and the believers, they go out of their way. They play this game with a loss of Hannah to Allah, they make claims that they are not serious about

00:15:37--> 00:15:40

they make pledges that they do not fulfill.

00:15:41--> 00:15:43

Right, they do things

00:15:44--> 00:15:46

they used to come to the prayer,

00:15:47--> 00:15:49

right, but whenever they have a chance,

00:15:51--> 00:15:58

they would disappear, they will be missing an action, they will not be praying, they will only pray in public.

00:16:01--> 00:16:02

So Allah subhanaw taala expose them,

00:16:04--> 00:16:09

that they are very deceptive, in their dealings in their behavior in their promises.

00:16:11--> 00:16:18

Another quality of there is of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned in the Hadith is that they

00:16:19--> 00:16:28

do not fulfill their promises with a tomb in the hand, they actually betray their disloyal.

00:16:30--> 00:16:31

They are not trustworthy.

00:16:32--> 00:16:37

Whenever they have a chance, if they can get away with it, they will stab you in the back.

00:16:38--> 00:16:39

They will let you down.

00:16:40--> 00:16:44

Right? This is a clear sign and they don't see anything wrong with that.

00:16:46--> 00:16:47

They make a promise.

00:16:49--> 00:17:02

And it's not that they fail due to you know, some various circumstances or just because they just have a weakness and they No no, no, they make the promise knowing that they will break it.

00:17:05--> 00:17:10

They buy time they buy opportunities they they whatever it is.

00:17:11--> 00:17:14

They try to evade blame or

00:17:15--> 00:17:18

so they break their promise.

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

Another sign of hypocrites

00:17:22--> 00:17:25

is that they are lazy when it comes to worship.

00:17:27--> 00:17:29

worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna

00:17:30--> 00:17:30

is

00:17:31--> 00:17:51

a huge deal. Huge struggle takes you know, they drag their feet Allah subhana wa tada says in the Quran, what either como la sala de como que Salah, and when they get up, this is really terrifying brothers and sisters. I remember my father when I was growing up, when he usually whenever I'm

00:17:52--> 00:18:05

lazy by the law or I'm taking my time I lost the prophecy. My father may Allah Subhana Allah have mercy on him with recite this if you want to be like that? Well, either amo, insalata como que Santa.

00:18:06--> 00:18:12

They drag their feet to the prayer. They're the last people to come. And they're the first people to leave.

00:18:14--> 00:18:19

Joining the prayer is is a huge deal. It's very heavy.

00:18:22--> 00:18:30

Coming to the machetes is a huge deal. There is no enthusiasm, there's no energy whatsoever when it comes to prayer.

00:18:32--> 00:18:43

Another sign that a loss of how to animations in the same verse that they mentioned, or remember a lot of little, they don't do that. When I have Quran, Allah Allah, Allah Allah

00:18:45--> 00:18:47

they will mention Allah Subhana Allah much.

00:18:48--> 00:19:05

Another sign that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah mentions in the Quran is that they mark those who are committed to their religion, or those who are very keen on worshipping Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, they mark them, they make fun of them, they belittle them,

00:19:06--> 00:19:08

they look down on you know,

00:19:12--> 00:19:54

they just put them down. Even those who try to do their best, they mark them for some reason, right? It makes them feel maybe better about themselves. So if you find yourself somehow despising or looking down upon people who are trying to worship Allah subhanaw taala or people who are trying to maintain their commitment to Allah azza wa jal at afraid of the Hillel in the harem, or people who are enthusiastic about worshiping Allah subhanaw taala. They get excited whenever they are invited. Right to any opportunity, Salah whether it's mandatory or voluntary sadhaka this that has been around whenever they're invited.

00:19:55--> 00:19:58

Don't be bothered by people's response or

00:20:00--> 00:20:16

By people's excitement, about a bad day and about worshiping a loss of habitat sometimes, and catch yourself, if you start feeling that way, whenever you see people getting excited, even if you're not excited about it, let's say that you are experiencing some kind of spiritual down,

00:20:17--> 00:20:42

and you're not as motivated, and natural, right? Help yourself, get back in shape, spiritually speaking, but in the meanwhile, do not be bothered, don't look down upon and certainly you should not mock or make fun, or discourage those who are who are maintaining their, their their energy, their spiritual energy, they're trying to do something, don't

00:20:44--> 00:20:44

don't discourage them.

00:20:46--> 00:20:57

This is a clear sign of hypocrisy. That means hypocrisy has really developed. And it's in a in a very advanced stage.

00:20:58--> 00:21:00

This is a very dangerous state to be in.

00:21:02--> 00:21:04

Another sign that I'm going to conclude with this,

00:21:06--> 00:21:22

of hypocrisy, and this used to be during the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. This was a very, very clear sign of serious level of hypocrisy theory, levels of hypocrisy is that they

00:21:23--> 00:21:32

find themselves to be embarrassed, or they don't want they don't want they distance themselves from the believers, from the community.

00:21:33--> 00:21:39

And they find themselves to be very enthused and very excited to join others.

00:21:42--> 00:21:58

They're very excited. They want to be accepted by others. They don't care about acceptance, by the Muslim community by the believers, they don't care. They don't value that, but to be accepted and praised and welcomed by others.

00:21:59--> 00:22:00

This makes their day

00:22:01--> 00:22:07

and you find them to be, you know, hastening to align themselves with them.

00:22:09--> 00:22:10

Take them as their allies.

00:22:12--> 00:22:20

And they find that they see that as an accomplishment. Be careful brothers and sisters. This is one of the diseases of our times.

00:22:21--> 00:22:24

This is one of the one of the diseases of our time.

00:22:25--> 00:22:37

Allah subhanho wa Taala says photogra lady enough to be him Morrow Do you wanna see him? You find those who have a disease in their hearts hastening they want to align themselves with them.

00:22:38--> 00:22:39

You're

00:22:40--> 00:23:01

gonna die. They don't have trust in Allah Subhana with Allah in the promise of Allah azza wa jal that the believers will be victorious no matter what, that the believers will be able to defeat the odds as long as they commit themselves or hold on to their commitment to a loss of Hannah what to Allah and maintain certainty they don't have, they don't have they're not fully they have not fully bought into that.

00:23:04--> 00:23:14

They think that maybe we need to have Plan B or C as a matter of fact even their plan B and C sometimes is their plan A to begin with.

00:23:18--> 00:23:29

So we need to be very careful brothers and sisters I ask Allah Subhana Allah to make you and I have those who listen and follow the best of what they listen to Apollo has a power was suffer Allah Allah Allah confessor ferrovia Fela camino hola for Orion
