la how up all studied useless Armada come way off, you know back home when the Hawala Shula who fell for the devils and Alima and Doofer in the fall howdy Nikita below him as well. Have you ever had the had you Mohamed in Salalah, where he went early, he was sent to them, or Shavon Ohmori Mahadeva to her local data team to be there. What will be data and Lala, All praise is due to Allah we praise Him we seek his aid and we ask for his forgiveness. We seek refuge and protection in Allah from the evils of ourselves and the evil consequences of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can lead astray and whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray, Nan can guide I testify that there is none worthy

00:02:01--> 00:02:48

of our worship, love and devotion but the Almighty Allah alone, and I testify that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was seldom is His servant and His Messenger or you who believe, fear Allah as he should be feared and die not, except in a state of submission to your 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 watcher over you are you who believe, keep your duty to Allah, fear him and speak the truth. He will direct you to

00:02:48--> 00:03:20

righteous deeds and will forgive your sins, and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has indeed attained a great achievement. The best words are the divine words of the almighty Allah. And the best guidance is the guidance of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Ali who were early he was sending them and the worst things in the religion are the newly invented matters for all the newly invented matters in religion are considered to be heretical innovation and bitter, and every bidder is misguidance.

00:03:21--> 00:03:27

Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, in Allah your moral good ideally will,

00:03:29--> 00:03:30

what he will

00:03:31--> 00:03:38

when an infection, he will move very well very evil comme la la comida. The Quran

00:03:40--> 00:03:44

Allah commands you are enjoins upon you

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

Aladdin, justice.

00:03:48--> 00:03:51

That means you give everyone the rights.

00:03:52--> 00:03:56

Everyone gets the rights. That's justice.

00:03:58--> 00:04:14

Well, the sun and the sun is a level that is higher than justice. And that's to give from yourself. That's to go the extra mile. That's generosity, forgiveness, allowance.

00:04:15--> 00:04:19

And Aloha mobile ad anyone ehsani what you eat, it will follow

00:04:20--> 00:04:51

and that you give from what you have to those that are closest to you. Those who need whether you are talking about financial assets, or you're talking about any type of assistance and help because humans are weak by themselves. Allah says Well, who do you call in sanel by Eva, and man was created weak? Yes, sometimes we love to feel or to think and assume that we are strong and there are moments of strength.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

But these are temporary and they are limited to a specific area in many areas in our life. We are limited

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

We are weak, we are dependent. We need help, we are deficient. That's the nature of humans and that's how Allah created them they are in need.

00:05:10--> 00:05:20

Allah says yeah you Hannah so and tomorrow for Cara will Allah Allah, all mankind you are the one who are in need of Allah, you are in need, that means you can't stand alone.

00:05:22--> 00:05:31

And this is why Allah also said to Prophet Musa alayhis salam Paola says I should do I'll do the cabbie I think we shall strengthen you and support you with your brother.

00:05:32--> 00:05:52

So human weakness is an absolute fact. So we need the help. So Allah subhanaw taala enjoins upon us and advises us to look out for those who need because there will be others who need some of them speak out about their needs, some don't. So it's good for humans to look for one another.

00:05:53--> 00:05:55

To watch out for one another.

00:05:57--> 00:06:07

In the La Jolla and we'll be adding even lesser anyway eater will widen her annual fascia he will carry will belly and Allah prohibits you

00:06:08--> 00:06:23

from an fascia lewdness in decency, improved improper behavior that violates your spiritual purity. That violates a sense of decency and shyness.

00:06:26--> 00:06:36

went hand in fascia it will moon come along cover anything that is despicable, morally despicable, ugly, reprehensible

00:06:38--> 00:06:43

things that your pure human nature, if it's not corrupted,

00:06:45--> 00:06:52

will not be a will reject will naturally resist and reject. This is why it's called the mooncup.

00:06:53--> 00:07:19

And it shows that Allah built us in the best fashion not only in terms of our physical appearance, but also in terms of our moral structure. And that's the fitrah Allah built us intact. We have the football, Allah built in us a good human nature that recognizes what's good, and recognizes what's evil, and is attracted to what's good. And it's

00:07:20--> 00:07:22

repelled by what's evil.

00:07:23--> 00:07:31

When I knew fascia, you will Moon carry when Barry and he also prohibits transgression.

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

They are to cross the limits of others, that you transgress the boundaries. You take beyond your right.

00:07:44--> 00:08:05

Many of the scholars of Islam and the professors who commented on this verse, They say this summarizes Islam in its totality. The entirety of Islam is summarized in this verse. This is what Islam is. These are the underlying principles of all of the details that you know about in Islam.

00:08:06--> 00:08:13

In Allah so there is positive injunction. There is a command that things that you are meant to do.

00:08:15--> 00:08:38

And there are levels justice and then generosity. The scholars call it a Landrieu well it felt blue, the bare minimum of goodness does justice, then there is the generosity, the higher level of being forgiving and kind and generous, to give from yourself to go the extra mile.

00:08:39--> 00:09:14

These are the things that Allah enjoins us these are things that we are supposed to proactively pursue. These should be the goals in our life, the standards for what we actively do, when hand in fascia you will carry will bury then the other side, there are the things that we are meant to avoid, abstain from, stay away from because these things corrupt our nature, they poison our hearts, and they corrupt life for us, life in this world, and life in the next.

00:09:15--> 00:09:20

And the good of this life is linked to the good of the hereafter.

00:09:22--> 00:09:27

We are not meant to view any good any profit in this life,

00:09:28--> 00:09:33

in a state of separation from its long term consequences in the Hereafter.

00:09:36--> 00:09:37

And any benefit

00:09:38--> 00:09:45

that seems to us as beneficial and good in this life that brings a detriment in the hereafter is not good.

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

is not good? This is a faulty view of it. So Allah tells us about things that we are meant to do. These are the principles behind them. A lot to do with ESA. And then on the other side there are the

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

Things that we are supposed to avoid.

00:10:03--> 00:10:16

And this pretty much covers everything in Islam. And it pretty much covers everything we need for a goodly life in this world. And in the Hereafter. This summarizes everything that humans need to know.

00:10:19--> 00:10:25

And if you look at Islam, it's about being just unfair with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So that's your give him his right.

00:10:26--> 00:10:30

You're not doing Allah favor when you single him out in worship.

00:10:31--> 00:10:53

When you achieve to heat in your heart, you recognize Allah is the Creator, the Sustainer, the provider, the one who has power over everything. And then the world belongs and everything in existence belongs to him. You're not doing Allah favor. When you recognize this, you're doing yourself a favor, when you recognize this ultimate truth.

00:10:55--> 00:11:09

And then when you give Allah his rights in terms of what he deserves the love in your heart, the devotion, the fact that he gave you this life, to worship him to seek him to find him and find a way that leads to him and pursue it.

00:11:12--> 00:11:22

That's and this is justice, this is the bare minimum. And if you fall short of that mark, you fall into what transgression and bogey

00:11:23--> 00:11:24

and the noncom.

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

There is no middle area.

00:11:32--> 00:11:51

You're either giving Allah His right or you are falling short. And that means you have fallen into transgression, you have fallen into evil. So there is no such thing as someone who doesn't worship Allah, or doesn't seek ALLAH or doesn't seek to learn and find the truth and abide by it.

00:11:52--> 00:11:59

And then we say it's a good person. There's nothing like that. That's a delusional thought.

00:12:03--> 00:12:16

Then we give Allah his rights by living according to what he prescribed. That's the right of Allah. It's not your life. Don't buy into this stuff that seeks to fool you.

00:12:17--> 00:12:27

That seeks to make you an easy target for Shavon so he can pull you so he can put around you he can harness you and he can pull you today Hellfire

00:12:28--> 00:12:32

by flashy slogans, it's my life.

00:12:33--> 00:12:50

Really sure life. Why are you bound by circumstances? Why are you bound by bigger forces in life? Why are you bound by natural rules that govern the universe? If it's your life, why can't you make yourself live forever

00:12:56--> 00:13:08

it's Allah's life. He gave it as a gift from Allah, He gave it to you. And then he prescribed for you a specific way as to how to deal with it, how to use it. That's what Aladdin,

00:13:09--> 00:13:17

a few falls short of this. You're not being just you're not being fair. You're being a transgressor.

00:13:19--> 00:13:26

There's no way to be politically correct about this. Because being politically correct here means lying, disruption.

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

And that's a great form of transgression.

00:13:32--> 00:14:03

And then if you want to give more from yourself, more than the obligation, Allah is so merciful, that He limited the number of obligations upon people. And then he gave enough room in your life and in existence. For those who aspire higher ranks. Those who have generous and beautiful souls who want to give more from themselves they want to pursue the highest ranks with Allah. Allah said, this is optional.

00:14:05--> 00:14:11

Although he deserves more than that, but ALLAH is forgiving he himself is generous ease of carrying

00:14:13--> 00:14:16

it then you have to be fair with yourself.

00:14:18--> 00:14:26

You have to give yourself justice and the biggest justice and the most fundamental justice you give yourself safety from the Hellfire

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

safety from the Hellfire

00:14:31--> 00:14:45

in you know, these times, we're so brainwashed that we think our own personal interest and benefit lies in what we enjoy. Right and having fun. Good time. leisure time, acquiring more.

00:14:47--> 00:14:56

But what if all of this leads you to the Hellfire eternally? Are you being fair to yourself? Or be are you being kind to yourself?

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

Now that's the irony of mod

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

In life, they say freedom, liberalism, you can think whatever you want, right?

00:15:07--> 00:15:27

But they will only apply the standards of the atheistic belief, all the respect expectations, all of the rhetoric, all of the discourse that is available to everyone on every platform is about what is based on the presumption that there is no hereafter.

00:15:29--> 00:15:32

The law is based in that legal system is based on that.

00:15:34--> 00:15:43

There is no hereafter, there's no paradise, there's no hellfire. So the rights of the people on the right to do whatever they want with their bodies, my life, Bye, buddy.

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

I can do whatever I want with it.

00:15:48--> 00:16:07

You know, but you don't see what you leading yourself? Is it worth that you take yourself to the Hellfire because of a little bit of enjoyment. So you need to be fair to yourself. And that's why Islam. This is why there is a concept of Dawa in Islam, to open people's eyes to the true rights, you deserve to live eternally in bliss.

00:16:10--> 00:16:14

In uncorrupted happiness in general, you deserve every one that you're right.

00:16:16--> 00:16:36

The opportunity to get that is your right. So anyone who denies you that is taken from you, no matter how liberal they claim to be, be taking your right to have a word of salvation, to be saved from the Hellfire to live eternally in paradise.

00:16:38--> 00:16:47

So anyone who compromises on this right of yours is violating you the boast. We have to call a spade a spade,

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

then you have to be just right to everyone else. Everyone else the creation of Allah, humans, animals, birds, nature,

00:17:01--> 00:17:04

everything around you, even your time.

00:17:06--> 00:17:16

You have to be Justin, you have to be fair, it's not. When you violate any of these rights, it's you're not only violating the rights of the person, or the thing that is standing in front of you.

00:17:18--> 00:17:22

But you are violating the limits of Allah subhanaw taala and he will hold you accountable.

00:17:24--> 00:17:25

He'll hold you accountable.

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

So we are supposed to live,

00:17:29--> 00:18:18

if not at the level of ESA, which is goodness, generosity and kindness and pursuing their highest ideals of morality, of goodness of spirituality, and good conduct, at least, don't fall short, below the level of Aladdin, of justice and fairness. You give everything arriving. The actor has rights on you, your eternal life has once upon you. It's an infinity of time that you're going to live, you're going to experience more than the experience that you have in this life. It's more intense, it's more accentuated, it's more real than the life that you experience. Now today, when you were eating your breakfast, you probably enjoyed every mouthful, right? Or your cup of coffee or coffee or tea,

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

you were enjoying it and you were feeling the sensation. And it feels so real. Right? The hereafter is more real than that. And you're going to experience it at a deeper level and more profound level. And that's why everyone on the Day of Judgment, they would look at the day of the dunya life this worldly life and it would seem as though it was a dream, as though it was not even real.

00:18:47--> 00:18:56

And the prophets are seldom mentioned in an authentic hadith that you'll be handed out for your muscles uncertain for not

00:18:57--> 00:19:01

for your column will have a higher and variable level allowing

00:19:03--> 00:19:39

the person who lived the most pleasant the most luxurious life on this f will be brought on the day of judgment and will be dipped only dipped in the hellfire and taken out so what is that a millisecond then he will be asked Have you ever seen any good ever? He said Love by Allah I've never seen anything good. Who's more real? What is more real this life for the next while you will be will be for your homeschool home set agenda to your home sets and for your car Lulu who has a turbo SamCart Allah Allah him Allah is

00:19:41--> 00:20:00

the most the person who lived the most miserable life on earth will be brought and will be in paradise. Again what a millisecond dipped in paradise that it will he will be asked Have you ever seen any misery ever? They will say by Allah. I've never seen any

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

misery ever in my life.

00:20:03--> 00:20:04

And we fight for this.

00:20:05--> 00:20:16

This whole life with everything in it, no matter how intense the experience is, it's not even with a dip in paradise or the hellfire, even in your personal experience.

00:20:20--> 00:20:23

And we keep chasing all of this delusional happiness.

00:20:26--> 00:20:27

In Allah Hi Amara will deliver

00:20:29--> 00:21:07

what eternity the quarterback, you are good that you live in this in this, your presence in this life is good to those who are around you to those who are good your family, your relatives, you can your friends, your neighbors, your presence in life should be a blessing, as Allah said about the prophets about, yeah, at least Sudan and a Saudis emoji I learned a MOBA can Aina Allah made me a source of blessing. Wherever I may be, I bring about blessing. I live with goodness, the justice and the generosity, the goodness, there are people wherever they go, they bring about trouble.

00:21:08--> 00:21:12

They pit people against each other, they bring about doubt.

00:21:16--> 00:21:23

There are individuals like that and their ideology is like that, that are spread in the name of what human rights,

00:21:24--> 00:21:30

justice, minorities rights, then big what do they do they pit people against each other.

00:21:32--> 00:22:06

The prime you for enmity against everyone else, the husband against the wife, the wife, against the husband, the youth, against the parents, the parents, against the youth, the minorities against each other under the pretext of human rights, and everyone starts on is on the lookout for their own rights and the looking for any kind of even imaginary injustice committed against them, so they can embrace it, and they can wage social justice, war against everyone and be a hero when their heart is corrupted. The life is full of moral decay.

00:22:08--> 00:22:15

And they can appear on every platform as if they are the most fair and just person in the world.

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

That's the world that we live in. And we spoke about this the systems of deception.

00:22:24--> 00:22:25

But we need to be careful.

00:22:27--> 00:22:28

We need to be careful.

00:22:29--> 00:22:33

Why in her annual fascia women carry well buddy sleeve this for the next half of

00:22:34--> 00:22:36

your career that was the full line you want to come first.

00:22:45--> 00:22:51

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayidina Muhammad Ali he was heard.

00:22:53--> 00:23:08

Allah says when an investor Allah warns you against lewdness, immoral acts and practices and lifestyles. And again, these are being what promoted today as freedom.

00:23:09--> 00:23:55

Right, as personal choices, when in reality these are deep moral violation. And Allah subhanaw taala does not warn against something except that it has so much evil in it. And there is something that we need to understand about ourselves, we humans, and it is more today, like it applies more to this principle applies more today than any time before because it seems that the modern man has done away with the wisdom of previous times and ages we have cut our selves off from everything humanity has figured out even the hard way. Why? Because of the narcissism of the modern world and the modern modern civilization. It sees itself the best, it looks down upon everything else and everyone else,

00:23:55--> 00:23:59

although it claims inclusivity but it's very deceptive in its nature.

00:24:02--> 00:24:03

So you will find that

00:24:06--> 00:24:25

people are being corrupted, under the name of freedom. People are being brainwashed from a young age in schools. Children who can't even think for themselves they are being brainwashed bombarded with a lot of messages subtle subliminal messages that change their thinking corrupt their hearts and their souls.

00:24:28--> 00:24:39

principles that are breaking the very basic foundation of what it means to be a human being the very nature natural you know, ideas and thoughts and categories

00:24:43--> 00:24:49

and the problem is that we're not doing much even to protect ourselves and the children against that.

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

Way and honey the fascia in only fascia spreads around. We don't we don't know much and this is the principle that we don't know much about the world.

00:25:00--> 00:25:03

You know, things have short can

00:25:04--> 00:25:15

create shortcut impressions, but they also have long term consequences. And sometimes those only play out in decades or even sometimes centuries.

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

So when something looks beautiful, flashy, and it's fresh people tend to be deceived by the immediate appearance of it.

00:25:27--> 00:25:34

But who knows how things end up 10 years, 20 years, 50 years from now, the Creator of the heavens and the earth.

00:25:36--> 00:25:57

So what seems to be freedom today could actually end up destroying human life. You know, there is no society. And this is known in history, there's no society where indecent behavior spreads, where the institution of marriage, decent marriage is destroyed, except that crime will become widespread.

00:25:58--> 00:26:22

security and safety of the people will be taken away, and people will succumb to war and civil wars. This has been proven over and over and over again. And there's nothing that Allah says It's haram for you, except that it's evil. But again, we are so obsessed with what we call empiricism. And we make a research about one year or two years down the line with you see, there's nothing wrong with that. There's nothing wrong with that.

00:26:23--> 00:26:34

But things there are many things, especially things that have to do with how we with our moral choices. They have long term consequences that only appear maybe as he said, decades down the line.

00:26:35--> 00:26:47

When her annual fascia it will mooncup Anything that's evil, anything that's harmful, and any harmful spiritually, physically, mentally, morally. All of that is Helen

00:26:49--> 00:27:41

Wilbur Bevy and transgression that you go out of your way not only abstain from injustice and evil, no, Allah also prohibits you from seeking to harm others or take other people's rights, no matter how legally allowed, this is today, through immoral and indecent marketing, for example. And a lot of financial and business schemes that are immoral. In essence, when you, for example, just a simple example, in the world of communication and, and cell phone services, you know, a minute counts as 48 seconds, not 60 seconds, right? They change the name of a minutes instead of 60 seconds. That applies to 48 seconds, depending on different countries, or 5050 seconds, and they call it a minute.

00:27:42--> 00:28:00

Right? And this is the norm of the industry. Now when it comes sanctified and respected. That's deception of lying. This is a simple example and applies everywhere. There are places where a kilogram is 900 grams. Why the industry standard deception, lying.

00:28:03--> 00:28:09

And Islam is haram. And if you're someone who sells this way you're committing haram, no matter how legal that is.

00:28:13--> 00:28:15

Because Allah is the ultimate authority there.

00:28:18--> 00:28:29

That's the only if you look at the Quran and contemplate the Quran, the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim, you'll find all of that all of the instructions in Islam are a matter of applying these principles that Allah mentioned.

00:28:31--> 00:28:34

That's what Islam really is. That's how life should go.

00:28:36--> 00:29:19

And this shows that Islam in its essence is moral, is immoral. Because many people like to think, oh, Islam is just something you follow. But life takes place. On the other side, it's some has different dynamics. That's the one of the biggest deceptions of Shavon. And Muslims do that. And by the way, if you fall into any of these violations that are mentioned in the verse, no matter how righteous you look, no matter how practicing appearance that you have, no matter how much you call yourself a Muslim, you will be held accountable.
