well how y'all had the had you in a beginner Mohammed in Salalah. Morally he was early he was selling them or shopping or moving to or calling them or texting or calling him Bala? What cool thing now.

00:02:03 --> 00:02:19

All praise is due to Allah. We praise Him. We seek his aid and we ask for his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves and the evil consequences of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides

00:02:21 --> 00:03:12

whomsoever Allah guides, none can lead astray and whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray, none can guide I testify that there is none worthy of worship, but the Almighty Allah alone. And I bear witness that Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him is a servant and his messenger are you who believe fear Allah as you should be feared and die not, except in a state of submission to Lord as Muslims, all mankind, be dutiful to your Lord who created you from a single person, and from him he created his wife, and from them both he created many men and women, and fear Allah through whom you demand your mutual rights and observe the rights of your kin. Surely Allah is Ever and all water

00:03:12 --> 00:03:48

over you, or you believe keep your duty to Allah fear him and speak the truth. He will direct you to righteous deeds and will forgive your sins. And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has indeed attained a great achievement. The best words are those of Allah and the best guidance is that all Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. And the worst things in the religion are the newly invented matters for all the newly invented matters in religion are an innovation and bitter and every bit that is in his guidance and it leads to the hellfire.

00:03:50 --> 00:03:55

It was narrated authentically from the Prophet sallallahu it was sent them that he is he was given the hot

00:03:58 --> 00:04:25

can hour during the demo yet hotter recall for Carla one be useful Allahu Allah. He was an ageless Faqad elevate. The Prophet SAW Selim was giving a fatwa and a man was trying to approach the front line come closer to the front, and he was passing through people and he was getting over their shoulders. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says to him sit down.

00:04:26 --> 00:04:31

You have harmed others, you have caused harm to others.

00:04:32 --> 00:04:59

And we know the encouragement in Islam to come to the frontline pray in the frontline because there is more reward. Yet. When this happens by means of causing harm, what kind of harm it is. A person is just getting over people's shoulders during the hotbar to come to the front line. The Prophet Solomon is saying to him, You are causing harm. Sit down, sit where you are

00:05:02 --> 00:05:14

In another Hadith the Prophet SAW Allah Salam says Laietana Jeff nanny Duna 34 in Nevada KU de wala your car whoever the moment

00:05:16 --> 00:05:29

let no two people have a private conversation without the third person who is with them like you three people. Two are having a conversation and they are leaving the third personalities.

00:05:31 --> 00:05:38

In orderly chaos zero. The prophets or someone says in another narration because this brings sadness to the third person

00:05:39 --> 00:05:49

will La Jolla caribou at the moment and Allah hates that a believer is hunt that a believer is hurts. Allah hates this.

00:05:50 --> 00:05:53

So harming a believer is not a joke.

00:05:55 --> 00:06:00

causing harm or hurt to a believer is something that Allah hates.

00:06:03 --> 00:06:19

And in an authentic hadith in autonomy, the Prophet SAW Allah when he was sin number mourns some people who used to cause harm to others to the believers, although on the surface, they claim they claim to be believers. They act as believers they seem as believers

00:06:22 --> 00:06:44

and they might be believers. But faith and Eman is incomplete. If the person extends harms, extends harm to the believers, this shows there is something serious about their email. There is a serious deficiency about their Eman if they are comfortable bringing harm to others.

00:06:45 --> 00:07:00

So the Prophet SAW Selim says in this authentic hadith, collected by mammoth telemovie urine Charmin and IBD 70 He Yeah, I'm not sure I'm an airman Abd 71 amused with a man who in Appleby,

00:07:01 --> 00:07:13

Oh, you, who have believed with their tongues with the words they claim to be believers, but a man has not really taken hold of their hearts

00:07:15 --> 00:07:15


00:07:16 --> 00:07:19

lie to me, what

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

to him

00:07:23 --> 00:07:32

Do not harm the believers and do not follow their deficiencies, their weaknesses, their mistakes, their issues.

00:07:33 --> 00:07:34

Do not follow that

00:07:36 --> 00:07:37

feminine path and

00:07:39 --> 00:08:10

he talked about Allah who are Waratah who woman fetida Allahu Allahu Allahu Allah with you don't feel it. Do not follow the shortcomings of your brothers of your sisters trying to expose them, highlight, highlight them, bring them to public attention. Because whoever follows the shortcomings the mistakes of a believer Allah will follow their own shortcomings and expose them even if they hide in the middle of their house.

00:08:12 --> 00:08:14

So harming a believer is not a joke.

00:08:16 --> 00:08:30

causing harm causing sadness to unbeliever is not a joke. And the Prophet SAW listen and look at the statement you use or you claim to have belief with your tongues but Eman has not taken root in your hearts

00:08:37 --> 00:08:40

and this is something that is known from the hypocrites.

00:08:41 --> 00:08:44

Allah subhanaw taala describes the hypocrites in the Quran

00:08:45 --> 00:08:56

in salted Tober and Lydian al in the zone and Mata Widener meaning as for the courts, will Levine Allah ug Duna in La Jolla home facehugger when I'm in home Cepheid, Allah Amina

00:08:57 --> 00:08:59

those who mark

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

the ones who give little in sadaqa in charity.

00:09:05 --> 00:09:25

So among the companions, there were some good ones. They were among the companions, the ones who could not offer sadaqa they didn't have finances. So they offered the little that they had, maybe some dates a little bit of food, or maybe they helped out with their own effort.

00:09:26 --> 00:09:44

So the hypocrites used to make fun of them. That's all you can give. What is this gonna do? Who's going to benefit from this little kind of thing that you're giving? For the sake of Allah? So Allah reprimanded them, those are the ones who mock the believers who give little will give the little they have.

00:09:48 --> 00:09:56

Allah says Allah will mock these people. Allah will mock these people. And Allah describes the hypocrites and slaughter Mona if you're one.

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

Don't think the hypocrites are people who

00:10:00 --> 00:10:04

come across as vulgar evil of putting No,

00:10:06 --> 00:10:12

you could actually come across as nice as very well spoken as presentable as righteous.

00:10:14 --> 00:10:22

But hypocrisy is in the heart. And it shows in very vicious ways. It's very subtle ways. Allah Subhana Allah says about the hypocrites,

00:10:24 --> 00:10:33

what you got at home to educate yourself. And if you see them, that very presentable your they impress you with their presentation with their looks

00:10:35 --> 00:10:50

with their physical appearance, the very impressive whatever your Hulu does, not only him and they speak, if they speak, and they say something, they capture your attention, you listen to them. Beautiful words.

00:10:52 --> 00:10:52

Were in your

00:10:53 --> 00:10:54


00:10:55 --> 00:11:46

So they present them, they present their words beautifully. In Surah Al Baqarah, Allah subhanaw taala warns against this. And by the way, these are things that we know today as behavioral hypocrisy, or some form of narcissism, or some form of passive aggressive behavior. Someone who comes across as nice, beautiful, principled moral, yet in subtle ways. they sting you in subtle ways that harm you. They hate you whenever they can cause harm or damage. They do that. Whenever they can speak ill about you, they will speak about that whenever you make a mistake or fall off or stumble, they would capitalize on this and magnify it. Why? Because they can only feel righteous when other

00:11:46 --> 00:12:20

people are sinners when they make others as sinners. They can only feel good. When they label others as bad. They can only grow if they can put people down. It's all about comparison. It's all about the big ego. It's all about themselves. But then, because this attitude is full of evil, they flesh it out with some beautiful words, sometimes with things that are Islamic, but Allah subhanaw taala warned us against this so and so what Alibaba Allah subhanaw taala says

00:12:22 --> 00:12:28

Wamena nursing me you do mocha polar moving? Hey, I didn't do what you should do. Hola. Hola, Matthew

00:12:29 --> 00:12:31

Wahoo Dorothy's on

00:12:33 --> 00:12:34

what either Taiwan

00:12:35 --> 00:12:50

sir I feel ugly. You've said that. While you really can help with our nursing, hola, hola. You shoulda woulda said what will either feel alone or that will so to be in the hospital who Jahannam Well, a bit sell me.

00:12:51 --> 00:13:07

So among people that are those that their speech mesmerizes you appeals to you. The words are beautiful. They speak about morality, about principles about justice, about respect about goodness, beautiful speech.

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

Your job Oklahoma who've inherited dunya

00:13:14 --> 00:13:17

Wamena Nassima, you're gonna come over here to dunya.

00:13:18 --> 00:14:04

Well, who were eligible he saw when in reality. In reality, this person is a fierce enemy is full of hate, is full of venom, and poison. And they are severe in the enmity and their opposition will either it's I want to know. So I'm going to paraphrase the verses expound on the explanation, or either one. And if this person walks on the earth, and they act out in the earth, you see their behavior, their actions, so this speech is beautiful, their actions will either tell us only the ACT keenly the very hard working so I will probably lead you see the fee here where you really can help the witnesses. This person spreads corruption, with their actions, with their behaviors with their

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

deeds with what they do.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:23

And how we can help our nursing they destroy two things. And these are symbolic here in this verse, you really can help them when nurses and health is cultivating the land and this means they corrupt or they try to destroy people's work people's livelihood,

00:14:24 --> 00:14:59

practical things about life. So whenever wherever this person comes about, they cause problems they cause issues, especially with people's livelihood with people's relationships etc. Where you only can help that one Nestle unnecessarily ill is more about the social life of people they were any environment they come into they bring about toxicity, poison corruption, they create problems between people, the antagonize antagonize some people against others, the same as that's what the hypocrites used to do. When you're going to come help the Oneness of Allah Allah Buddha says

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

Allah does not love corruption. Allah does not love corruption.

00:15:05 --> 00:15:08

Allah loves goodness, a lot of virtue.

00:15:09 --> 00:15:30

Allah does not love corruption, Allahu Allah, your head will will either have de la hood tequila. So what you see about about such type of behaviors, which type of personality is that the speech is beautiful, but when you do with them, in reality, that very destructive, huge discrepancy.

00:15:31 --> 00:15:40

And that's what we don't today, by the way, as we said hypocrisy, but primarily that's what narcissists do. They're passive aggressive, they confuse you.

00:15:42 --> 00:15:49

In a sense, they give you the impression of goodness, beauty, morality, principles, etc. But on the ground,

00:15:50 --> 00:15:55

they are an embodiment of the opposite of this. And that confuses you.

00:15:57 --> 00:16:41

That Allah Subhana Allah clarifies that when these people are brought to the reality of their attitude, the discrepancy, their corruption, why the penal hookah level is set to this person, feel Allah, what are you doing? That's wrong, what you're doing the way you're behaving, a habitual is a terrible ism. They take pride and they see themselves above being corrected above being reminded to fear Allah why? Because they see themselves as up and others as down. How dare you say to me, it took me unrighteous on this I did this I did that I always speak about goodness, I always promote goodness, but underneath the bite and the thing

00:16:44 --> 00:16:53

that will is to be first of all, Johanna motivates me. For this type of people sufficient will be Johanna, the hellfire

00:16:54 --> 00:16:55

and what an evil abode.

00:16:57 --> 00:17:09

Severe these are important things that we need to be careful about as a believer the Prophet SAW Selim describes a Muslim in the authentic hadith a Muslim oh man sorry man Muslim on mnb sunny he wired.

00:17:11 --> 00:17:13

The true Muslim is someone

00:17:14 --> 00:17:32

that the Muslims are safe from his or her harm. The harm of the tongue, the words whether you attack them directly, or you backed by them and speak behind their backs and slander them or you harm them physically.

00:17:34 --> 00:17:36

Physically you attack them.

00:17:38 --> 00:17:44

So a Muslim is someone that the Muslims are safe from they feel safe from they don't feel threatened.

00:17:46 --> 00:17:55

And the prophesy Salam In another Hadith is more specific. He says Hola, hola, Ben. Monday, mental jah jah who Bella fo

00:17:56 --> 00:18:08

the person whose neighbor does not feel safe from does not feel safe from their treacherous SNESs then this person will lie they're not a believer. They're not a believer.

00:18:09 --> 00:18:18

So this shows this strong connection between faith Amen in the heart and the person's attitude towards others.

00:18:20 --> 00:18:21

If the behavior

00:18:23 --> 00:18:31

is not good, is not virtuous is not moral under any pretext because everyone can make it can make excuses for evil behavior for bad behavior.

00:18:33 --> 00:18:46

If the behavior is not good, don't listen to the claims. Don't look at the facade. Don't look don't look at the appearance in the outside. Don't be fooled by that. Because actions here speak louder than words.

00:18:51 --> 00:19:01

And again, I'll conclude you with some statements from Alpha Daelim to Al Rahim Allah to Anna he said Laotian due to the movement and knew the Caribbean well I think zero

00:19:04 --> 00:19:07

do not over the key fob accommodation trial Allah

00:19:09 --> 00:19:11

for later may have one of the greatest

00:19:12 --> 00:19:30

scholars as the early generation. He says it's impermissible for a believer to harm a dog or a pig without a valid excuse. So what about the most noble creation that Allah created humans?

00:19:31 --> 00:19:33

A tiger Rahim Allah out and the great tabby.

00:19:36 --> 00:19:51

He also says he warns against harming others he says it's impermissible impermissible for a believer to harm another believer whether in speech in action, regardless what the title is.

00:19:52 --> 00:19:55

So this is something important to take note of for us.

00:19:56 --> 00:19:59

First and more and foremost for ourselves.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:09

This is not to talk about other people where you start labeling others or this person on tours under this category. And you feel the moment you feel safe about yourself.

00:20:10 --> 00:20:24

That's a red flag. That's a red flag. This information is not for us to label others and start talking about others. It is actually for us to reflect and keep ourselves in check. I only had I was the full Office doc.

00:20:36 --> 00:20:43

And hamdulillah here on Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad in Rwanda and he was happy he was

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

probably Allah who

00:20:48 --> 00:21:11

approach it approaches her before Liliana wobbly Allah Han. And we're not really familiar man as the some of the historian Muslim historians, they called him a mean I mean, we simply Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was the holder of the secrets of the prophets, Allah, Allah. And one of the reasons he was given this title is, was that the Prophet SAW Selim disclosed to

00:21:12 --> 00:21:17

disclose disclosed to him the names of the hypocrites.

00:21:19 --> 00:21:29

He disclosed to him the names of the hypocrites, Allah told the prophets I send them the names of the hypocrites, who the Muslims could not recognize for the most part.

00:21:30 --> 00:21:36

Allah revealed the names the Prophet Muhammad SAW so lambda prophets and suddenly disclosed them to khalifa only. So

00:21:39 --> 00:21:45

later on during the field after the leadership of anonymous op Bob, he approaches the leaf and he says, Hello Camela.

00:21:46 --> 00:22:29

And then he assume ye sallallahu alayhi wa sallam women who want to have 50. I asked her by Allah, the Prophet saw some of them, count me among the hypocrites. I know this puzzles many people, they say, like, why is he thinking Ill of himself, he's not thinking you will improve himself. He's holding himself accountable. He knows that his life is not over yet. And he is no guarantee that his life will end in good shape. That's where he was concerned. And he's teaching us a lesson here that is, first and foremost you need to be concerned with yourself with yourself. If you are searching for other scanning for other people's mistakes, then you have a problem. You will have a problem. A

00:22:29 --> 00:22:36

machete over him Allah Allah He said, Lucerne, Ocala, Ted Kirby, I will attempt it in for cool Luka rotten, Woody Nasir

00:22:38 --> 00:23:17

your tongue don't mention don't use it to talk about people's mistakes and shortcomings. Because you are full of them. You are full of these mistakes, and people have tongues. So a sign of someone of iman a sign of someone who's really guided by Allah subhanaw taala. They're not concerned about labeling, categorizing people and putting them in boxes and classes. No, they're concerned, they learn first and foremost for themselves to rectify themselves to correct themselves. When they read something about the believers, they strive to perform it and to adhere to it. When they hear something about disbelievers. They make sure they keep away from all of that when they use something

00:23:17 --> 00:23:37

about hypocrites. They are alarmed. They scan their own behavior, their attitude, they check their own heart as well, to make sure that none of these traits of the hypocrites apply to them. That's what we should be concerned with. And don't think you're safe. The moment you think you're safe from that is the moment you really, really should realize that you have a problem.

00:23:41 --> 00:23:42

None of us is perfect.

00:23:43 --> 00:23:57

And Islam is about working on yourself. It's not about you being perfect. It's about you keep you keep going to be work. Keep working hard on yourself all the time progressively. That's what it is.

00:24:00 --> 00:24:01

So you keep checking yourself.

00:24:02 --> 00:24:05

Holding, holding yourself accountable.

00:24:06 --> 00:24:10

Checking yourself against the book of Allah against the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu. Send them

00:24:11 --> 00:24:18

holding yourself accountable with regards to your intention. Is it for Allah subhanaw taala? Or is it for another thing?

00:24:19 --> 00:24:32

That's important. We have many statements from the setup from the earlier generations. One of them would say, or many of them would say, man is to say, I should delegate femininity. I've never struggled against something

00:24:34 --> 00:24:38

more troubling, more challenging than purity of intention.

00:24:40 --> 00:24:59

And this is an imam. These are Imams who said something like this. So we need to keep bettering ourselves improving ourselves working on ourselves, hoping that Allah subhanaw taala would help us purify. Allah would guide us to clear our hearts and our actions and that Allah spoke openly

00:25:00 --> 00:25:02

would forgive our sins and help us overcome them.

00:25:04 --> 00:25:19

So, whether you're a husband, you're a wife, or you are a son or a daughter, or whether even in your dealings with your siblings, with your cousins, with your colleagues, or with people in the street or anywhere,

00:25:20 --> 00:25:35

making sure you don't have these kinds of traits that you don't come across as nice, beautiful, and principled, and moral, right? But then in reality in action, you start

00:25:36 --> 00:26:17

undermining people, you start harming people. And remember, it's a matter of faith is a matter of faith. And remember the statement of the Prophet size of the mala, Mala, who yet Cracow at any moment, and Allah hates that a believer is hard. So whenever you harm a believer in any shape or form, remember, you're doing something you're engaging in something that Allah hates, and that's very serious. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to purify our hearts and our actions and to help us deal with others in the best way that pleases Him along look for me and I wouldn't want me now twin will see me in a way Mr. Matt Damon on one on one it's a long
