It destroys your religion, and it destroys brotherhood, how to deal with it? What is that? Stay tuned.

00:00:40--> 00:01:28

Indeed, 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 evils of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, non chemists guide and whomsoever Allah leaves to go astray, none can guide and I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except a law alone who has no partners. And I bear witness that Muhammad is His Servant and Messenger. Dear viewers, Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. I'm your host matassa man Hamidi, welcome to the final episode of your show for the sake of Allah. We have our brothers with us Brother Mohammed and brother Abdul Rahman salaam aleikum wa

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:01:31--> 00:02:13

Now Alhamdulillah, we have come to see how beautiful Brotherhood is in Al Islam. And we came to know the high position of it and the reward that is awaiting those who love one another for the sake of Allah, and what Allah has prepared for them. And we have come to see the beautiful examples from the times that are before us, or, at our contemporary times, have beautiful examples of brotherhood and respect. And we came to see as well, what things that we can do to enhance and improve our brotherhood and strengthen this beautiful bond. And we came to know as well, some of the things that destroy brotherhood so that we can avoid them.

00:02:14--> 00:02:58

And we have delaire Chawla realize how that Islam or this Brotherhood in Islam is a very important thing for every Muslim is very important for the Muslim society. Now from the things that destroy brotherhood, and it's well known throughout the history is one thing which is called an Islam innovation, be that now someone might say what if someone falls into an innovation? How does this destroy Brotherhood in Islam? Now, innovation means that you introduce something to the religion, They mustn't just allow Islam didn't do. And these companions, may Allah be pleased with them didn't do something that is new to the religion. Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about

00:02:58--> 00:03:01

innovation. Matthew emelina had family Simon who for

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

anyone who innovates something in our religion, which is not part of it, and he will have it rejected, it will be rejected by Allah. It's not acceptable. And innovation is to do something, as I said, new in the religion, the messengers, a lot of them didn't do and his companions didn't do. So, innovation is very, a very serious issue because it is like tumor. It eats up the religion of Islam and one of the people the elegent, one of the Muslims of the LA generations of Islam, he said any people who introduce an innovation to their religion, then they will have assume that taken away and it will not come back to the religion until the date of resurrection. The reason why

00:03:49--> 00:04:31

Allah subhanaw taala said no Quran clearly. And that verse was revealed to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam on the day of alpha. I'm the head of farewelled had just heard that. A lot revealed to him aluma Aquila convener today I have completed your religion for you well at mundo la condemn it and I have perfected my favor upon you will lead to locomole Islam, Medina, and I'm pleased with Islam as your religion and way of life. So the religion of Islam is complete, clear in this ayah in this area, the original stem is complete, like a cup that is full to the top it's full, completely full. Now if you were to do something new to it. Now let's say this cup is full with water, you introduce

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

some juice in it, some orange juice, you put it in it, what's going to happen, the juice is going to replace or push out some water out of it. This exam exactly what happens to the religion of a few tradition innovation, it will cause some some not some parts of the religion to be kicked out. So the people will lose them forever, is how serious and innovation it is. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam conveyed the religion with it in its entirety.

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

So there's no reason for anyone to come and present a new thing to Islam. This is why one of the great scholars of Islam said anyone who invites or innovates something and introduces it to the religion of Islam, then he has claimed that Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam has betrayed the message, because Allah says, I have completed your religion. So if you introduce something to the Al Islam, your action claims that the religion is not complete. That means the process of some didn't convey the message completely. And you came to cover this defect or this thing that is missing. You see how serious innovation is. Now, what is the effect of innovation on brotherhood?

00:05:44--> 00:05:59

The reason with brotherhood, or the evil effect of innovation on Brotherhood is that it brings this dissension and differences now we follow the way the Prophet sallahu wa sallam was upon and his companions were upon as the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam.

00:06:00--> 00:06:47

I mean, he said that this is the religion. Okay, we follow that. Now someone comes with a new innovation. And he comes with another innovation. So he's on a different way. Now, he for something else. So this word is agreement, and conflict happens in Islam. This way, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said clearly the Hadith that mine or my nation will split into 73 sects. All of them will be in the Hellfire, except for one. So there will be differences 73 sets, each one is different. They follow a different understanding. Why is this because innovations they follow the same understanding as the profits or losses and the companions, there will be no differences, no sex, no

00:06:47--> 00:07:16

73 six. But now as people started to innovate and introduced to things to the religion, what happened? They had different understandings. So they split into 73 sets, all of them will be in the Hellfire, except for one. Now the companions were concerned with that. They said, which which sect which group, this is, so he's already sent them said, they are the ones who are upon what I and Matt and my companions are upon.

00:07:17--> 00:08:05

So if you follow this, we are from the same sect. Other than that, you follow innovations, things that were introduced to the religion. Lately, after the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, it means you are distancing yourself from the understanding of the Prophet and his companions. And you are distancing distancing yourself from their way. So this word disagreement takes place, and conflicts. And this this actually, like, like you said, it won't make Muslims united, because there will be more and more arguments, because of innovations beta. So it will make Islam in a way Get get weaker, because members of Islam are not united. Yeah. And all the innovations were introduced by

00:08:05--> 00:08:18

people who were plotting against Islam. Their intention was to make the Muslims split, as in the verse is a Lost Planet, Allah says, What unhealthily largely Muslim, in fact, they do well, at the topic of civil affairs,

00:08:20--> 00:09:03

this is my straight path. So follow it and do not follow the other ways, because they will take you away from his path. So if we follow different ways, this means we will have different understandings, each one will will defend his understanding is where conflict comes and takes place in the amount of Islam and what we can Muslim oma, where the innovations, people split, and they fought one another. So they became busy fighting one another, they became weak, and the enemy from outside came, and they preyed on this. They jumped on it, and they destroy the and they increased the splitting that took place between the Muslims. This is why innovation is very, very serious, is

00:09:03--> 00:09:22

as I said, tumor. Sure. Unfortunately, I have experienced that some brothers knew before. Well, they don't stick away much to the sun a little bit, they tend to be have the maybe their own opinion or something like that.

00:09:23--> 00:09:44

Now, I have less than getting in touch with them. But from time to time, I try to get in touch them and speak good manners. Things like that. Give a little bit of advice, maybe don't get into the subject that much. But still, the point is, I don't get in touch with them, like I used to be. So it's

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

as a fact, as you said that it's a weakens dome. And it used to be friends and group and things like that. Now, we don't get in touch with each other that much. So its effect and innovation.

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

would bring out

00:10:05--> 00:10:53

the differences and enmity. Yes, yes. What do you think? Um, the thing is, it's not bad to have your own opinion. But you cannot put in action till that you see if your opinion is in the sun, because there's a you could reason you could you have to see if if if it's if it came in the Koran and if it came in the sun, okay and and when you find okay your opinion is right. Okay, okay, I have to disagree with you, man, maybe it's the way you put it. One doesn't have to follow his opinion. We have to follow the Quran and the Sunnah. Sometimes there are differences. Well, if you are a scholar, and you have reached the level when you can extract I mean, opinions from the Quran and the

00:10:53--> 00:11:00

Sunnah, then that's a different case. But with regards to the rest of the Muslims, we are Muslims, we submit ourselves to the will of Allah.

00:11:01--> 00:11:41

We submit ourselves to the will of Allah, and we can see throughout the history of the Muslim ummah. I mean, the Muslims were one nation at the time of the prophets, Allah after that. Now the first group that came out was the Hawaii at the time of the Prophet after the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what happened? They fought the companions. You see, innovation brings a war and conflict and opposition. That's it confrontation. So once there is innovation, the Muslim Muslims will split and there will be differences and there will be fights amongst one another, there will be conflicts and combats. This is the problem with innovation. And Allah made this clear to us

00:11:41--> 00:11:50

and the Quran when he said well at akuna Minal mushy cane, and do not be from the polytheists, those who associate partners with Allah. Then the lightspeed

00:11:51--> 00:11:57

electric aluminum shell came in and Latina for Rocco Deena homework and OSHA from those who split their religion.

00:11:58--> 00:12:17

And they became, they, they split into sex. Because of that, they first he said for Rocco de nom, they split their religion because each one has his own understanding. Each one introduced something new to the religion, they have their own innovation, so divisions, so each one had his own way. So they became

00:12:18--> 00:12:58

for vocoding omotenashi. Aquila has been permitted to infringe on each group. Rejoice upon that, which it has. So this caused them to fight one another and destroy one. Innovation leads to polytheism. That's like, what I understood that yeah, it's the way the first way to polytheism Yeah. Because Will you receive the revelation that was the case with the nations who came before now, everyone started to introduce something new. And we said, introduce something new it will push away something from the religion, introduce something, introduce something so it's become all man made. Things that they introduced to the religion, they changed the religion of Allah, they changed it.

00:12:58--> 00:13:37

This is why they have not obeyed in their religion. This is why they destroyed their religion, and they became sex and they hate one another and fight one another. We will elaborate more on the case on an evil effects of innovation, how they affected the Muslim Ummah and how to deal with this issue in sha Allah so that we can maintain our brotherhood and perfect it and take care of it. As our last panel to Allah commanded us in the Quran and as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam commanded us in the sooner we will have to stop for a few moments. We'll come back inshallah, to discuss this important issue. I say to our viewers, stay tuned, we'll come back shortly in sha Allah.

00:13:47--> 00:14:28

00:15:23--> 00:15:54

Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Welcome back. So, innovation destroys the religion. And it destroys the unity of the Muslims destroys the Brotherhood that they have because it brings about disagreement and different opinions. And at the end there will be conflict and there will be wars as we saw at the time of the companions were the average, they fought them and they fought against them. And every time and innovate there is an innovation, there will be more splitting amongst the Muslims. Now.

00:15:55--> 00:16:38

According to one of the great scholars of Islam in new Tamia, he said that innovation is more beloved to shape on than the sin because the sin person knows he's falling into us and so one day, inshallah he will repent, but the one who does innovation he believes he's doing good he believes is worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala. So, this actually prevents him from Toba. This is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said clearly and the Hadith, he said that Allah has kept Allah has screened Toba and kept it away from anyone who invents an innovation obeyed Anil Islam until he abandons this data. So it is a serious issue destroys the religion of the person and it destroys the

00:16:38--> 00:16:57

Brotherhood that the Muslims have. And we can see sometimes you see a brother is very good brother has come to the deen he started practicing. And you can see that he has love for you, you love have love for him. And some after some time, he starts mixing with people who have innovations, and he will start to see the hatred and enmity in his eyes. He doesn't even give you

00:16:58--> 00:17:29

you see what innovations do. They have split and the Muslims shift. For example, if someone started to do innovation, and then he he knew that one day he was wrong and learned he repented handler. But he spent this innovation among some people, some brothers, of course, he has to go and give them advice and tell them clarify, clarify to them as a Lost Planet. Allah says in the Quran, in the levena taboo will also allow wellbeing

00:17:30--> 00:18:11

except for those who repent. And they rectify the mistake that they have created whereby even when they clarify to the people, that that was a sin or an evil innovation. You see how repentance is the complete package, you have to fulfill its conditions. If you lead some people astray, you have to come and try and get them back, yes, through through here because part of your repentance. So innovation is a serious issue. And we can see that they are very widespread all around the world. And they have caused this splitting amongst the Muslims and the enmity. So we have to clarify these issues to the people warn them against innovations to actually bring the people to the way of the

00:18:11--> 00:18:36

Prophet salallahu Salam this. This is what what Islam is, other than that is not Islam. Everything you introduce to the religion is not part of Islam. And so innovation is a very important issue that people have to pay attention to. Now as we are in the final episode, and you see, we have been discussing the issue of brotherhood, that is one of the foundations of the Muslim society, a very important and

00:18:37--> 00:19:22

a very vital pivot in Islam. So this is something we should take care of something. It's part of the religion that when we achieve it, we are obeying the last panel to Allah when we harm the Brotherhood and destroy it, we are disobeying our Creator. So this is why the prophets are Laureus and, and throughout his Sierra throughout his life, he explained to us, and he demonstrated to us how to maintain brotherhood. And we came across the rights of brotherhood and the things that destroy brotherhood, how we can avoid them. So that we can present to the world, the religion of Islam, and the best of forms in a very pure way as the profit and loss element.

00:19:23--> 00:20:00

And this is our mission today. I say to the Muslims today, don't belittle yourself, you can bring ascendancy and the honor that Islam by implementing Islam in yourself, and part of it is to know the rights of your brothers and your sisters in Islam. And we can see if we try to implement the things that will strengthen our brotherhood. We are strengthening ourselves. We're strengthening our Eman And it all works together. autocompletes one another, it's complimentary parts. So all of it works together. So we can strengthen our email while we spread this alarm and while and while we are heading to

00:20:00--> 00:20:11

What's the essential job and the more we look after our brothers, the more we give advice, then our brothers will give us advice will increase in demand, we will increase in good, the more injustice disappears. And the more

00:20:12--> 00:20:50

the best thing is that the more fairness there is, yeah, the more Yes, I want a word from you to our viewers. Before we leave some advice with regards to brotherhood, how we can maintain it how, what sort of advice you believe is important to ourselves and our viewers as well start with you. Well, inshallah, we have to go back to inshallah, to the Quran and Sunnah and follow the correct man Hajj inshallah, by throughout, through scholars that have clear knowledge of this straight path to jungle inshallah, this is a basic thing we have to do, inshallah.

00:20:54--> 00:21:11

First of all, like people, most people that that the fall victim of, of the Society of the injustice in it, of the unfairness of the extra selfishness in it, that in the end, even though they're part of it, they become victim of it,

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

he got it gotta get back to and see the beliefs that Islam has offered, and and that Allah has given to Muslims to, to make this injustice and this unfairness disappear through brotherhood, and all these

00:21:33--> 00:21:42

nice and beautiful way of life. Because Islam, as we all know, is a lifestyle. It's not, it's not only praying and

00:21:43--> 00:22:31

is that these are very valuable advice, and inshallah, through our own conduct through our character, will try to be people of guidance, guide the people to the truth, show them what Islam really is, and clarifying the real picture of Islam. And I say to our viewers, as well, don't belittle yourselves, the every little helps. And when you apply Islam on yourself, you are giving the people dour. And this is what this life is all about. I mean, we are here in this world for a test. And the last panatela wants to see whether we are going to follow His guidance, or we are going to follow our own desires and our own inclinations. So this life is but a test Don't be taken

00:22:31--> 00:23:14

by its enjoyment, don't be taken by the attainment of this life, because it is all as well as Allah said, it's all a mirage, it's all a mirage that is going to go soon, and we are all going to die at one stage. And we are going to return to our Creator where the real life is. So it's either paradise, or hellfire. And through the implementation of the rulings with regards to brotherhood, we maintain this brotherhood, we present an excellent example to the people and the real demonstration of the management Islam we treat one another in the way that is best. When we implement Islam on ourselves and our families. And in our society, people will come to realize the beauty well, Islam,

00:23:14--> 00:23:57

and they will be floating towards Islam, because there are many truth truth seekers around the world. And they were denied the right to know the reality of an Islam, we can see that the media is spreading the wrong image of Islam, they're trying to distort Islam and turn the people away from it. So it is our obligation to tell the people about Islam, to explain Islam to them, so that they will come to appreciate it and appreciate its beauty and the truth in it. So this is our obligation and we shouldn't be inclined towards our desires. Because it is all as I said, in the very beginning, it is a test. It is a test we should not be taken by that we should keep our sights and

00:23:57--> 00:24:43

our hearts all the while attached to Allah subhana wa to Allah and to the guidance that we find in the Quran and the Sunnah, and anything that harms our brothers and our sisters in Islam, we should avoid it. And we should enhance this brotherhood look after it because it is a very important part of our religion. So Islam needs us. If we abandon Islam, who's going to uphold it, who's going to present it to the people, so it is our duty, it is our obligation and inshallah we'll do our best to uphold it and present it to the people in the way or the same way the Prophet sallallahu did, and the way the companions May, Allah, Allah be pleased with them. This is real life. For those who are

00:24:43--> 00:25:00

looking for life is who are looking for honor those who are looking to realize themselves. This is the path for you. It is the path of Islam. Let's uphold it. Let's understand its beauty in its implemented, and we know that Islam spread all around the world.

00:25:00--> 00:25:47

Throughout achieving it throughout, acting upon its guidance, as we know from the countries in South East Asia, where there was no army, Muslim army that ever reached these lands, but these were Muslim merchants, who realized that Islam, who dealt with people with honesty, and they presented the Muslim character and the best of its forms. This is why we see one of the largest countries will is from that area. So we see that through our conduct, through our behavior, through our efforts, our humble efforts, we can change the face of this earth, and we can make the people understand the beauty of Islam. As there is a battle going on there. There are people trying to destroy Islam,

00:25:47--> 00:26:20

people trying to keep the way in darkness, there are those who are trying to keep the people under the enslavement of their desires, so that they turn away from the true path leading to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So let's carry the light of Islam. Let's credit to the people. Let's look after our brothers and sisters in Islam and show humanity and example, that is the same as that of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his companions and we came to see inshallah,

00:26:21--> 00:27:06

what we discussed with our guest is on the low, high on how Islam is beautiful, and when humanity applied Islam, then inshallah they will have justice on this earth, they will have love for one another, they will have a perfect way of life, perfect societies, perfect individual individuals away from suicide, away from drugs, away from crime, away from injustice, away from oppression, this is what Islam calls for, is to have a better life here on this earth, and to have the pleasure of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, on the Day of Resurrection, where people inshallah will enjoy the what Allah has prepared for them in paradise. And as for the evildoers, and the oppressors, then they

00:27:06--> 00:27:49

will have to face the consequences, the evil consequences of the evil, the evil consequences of their sins, and of their oppression, and of the injustice that they spread on the land. So now I say to our guests, Zack, love him for being with us and for all your contributions, you will with us throughout this program, and you took the pains to join us was a planned barakallahu li calm and inshallah to clarify to our Muslim Brothers, the real meaning of Islam, the real meaning of brotherhood, and Islam and how we can achieve it.

00:27:49--> 00:28:27
