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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam. O Allah Rasool Allah, Allah Allah He was happy he woman while

00:00:12--> 00:00:52

we commence In the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household all his companions May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them and bless every single one of us and grant us all goodness, May Allah forgive us this beautiful eve of the month of Ramadan. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us acceptance. May Allah subhanho wa Taala write our names from among those who have been granted freedom from Hellfire I mean, my brothers and sisters surah to Nur is a surah named after the light. If we look at the surah we will see that in it there are rules and regulations pertaining to morality pertaining to

00:00:52--> 00:01:42

adultery, perhaps false accusation, as well as the gaze of a believing male and female. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how important it is to ensure that your eyes are controlled by yourself as best as you can. Because of the implications that it has, when you wander or when you begin to look everywhere without any control. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to control our gazes And may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us in every single way. That having been said Allah subhanho wa Taala has given a special light, a special note to the one who lowers his gaze, he or she and this is a beautiful light that is granted to those who lower their gazes. It is a light

00:01:42--> 00:02:26

in the heart that reflects as well on the face and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from those who have this new and the light on the Day of Judgment. Remember my brothers and sisters when we abstain from prohibition for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It is written as a good deed. That's amazing. So to do a good deed to fulfill Salah to fulfill your Zakah to fulfill your prayers to recite the Quran and so on. Those are good deeds. But even if you were just to abstain from a sin that is accessible to you, for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala it would be a huge reward May Allah subhanho wa Taala reward the soul, one of the most important organs that we have the tongue,

00:02:26--> 00:03:13

so much so that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, My yoke Malema belinelli de Bina fashi of the Mullah who Jana, whoever guarantees me the correct use of that which is between the cheeks, meaning the tongue, and that which is between the thighs, meaning the private parts, I guarantee him a place in paradise Subhana Allah, it sounds nice and easy, doesn't it? The whole life rotates around these two organs. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us use these organs correctly. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from those who earn paradise. So obviously we are responsible for what we say. If a person accuses another of something, he needs to substantiate that accusation. We

00:03:13--> 00:03:59

are not free to just accuse people without any substantiation, without any witnesses or evidence. If that is the case, we will be punished. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala makes it clear that the reputation of an individual is sacred Subhana Allah, you are a human being your life is sacred, your reputation is sacred, your lineage is sacred, your wealth is sacred, your mind is sacred. These are all things that are protected by the Sharia sacred meaning they are considered valuable in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala nobody can just take your life away my life or anyone else's life, there needs to be a procedure before that happens if a person is guilty of murder, the court system

00:03:59--> 00:04:44

would then find them guilty and then would penalize them. And remember, if you do not have authority on the land, you cannot just take the law in your own hands. So I cannot just say look, Allah subhanho wa Taala requires that for example, a fornicator is lashed. So let me start lashing all the people and you make a big announcement for people to come to you and you start lashing them. That is not correct. In fact, it is unacceptable because one of the basic rules and regulations regarding the fulfillment of the penal code in Islam is for you to have authority on land for you to have that authority over those who perhaps would be penalized May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us that deep

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

understanding. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says it is forbidden to accuse people of adultery, totally forbidden. absolutely unacceptable. For anyone to say these two are having an affair. The minute you say that you're not

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

Need to produce for good Muslims as eyewitnesses or you deserve to be lashed at lashes in public and you are considered a sinful person you bearing witness for anything in the future will be rejected. This is what surah Noor says in the opening verses, it is a protection for the females as well as for the males. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says verse number four, when levena Ramune Alma Sana t from Allah Mia to be our Bharati Shahada, those who have falsely accused the chaste women of adultery, they have thrown an accusation in that direction. And they do not come up with for solid eye witnesses who have witnessed the act, then do you know what the law says you should do to them?

00:05:49--> 00:06:32

Finally, do home somani Nigel de la luna home shahadat, an ABA, you should lash them at lashes, and you should never accept their bearing of witness again. And Allah calls them sinful people. My brothers and sisters, let's pause for a moment. How many of us are guilty of saying, Oh, those two are having an affair. And we think it's light. And the news spreads like wildfire. Not only is the rumor, but it is slander. It is wrong. We didn't see anything. Perhaps we might have saw two people walking or talking or two people perhaps chatting, even if they were blushing. It doesn't mean they were having an affair. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. These are dangerous statements that

00:06:32--> 00:07:12

are uttered from the mouths of people. And the worst thing is, Allah says those people will be punished in this world. And the next because they have falsely accused someone else. The best thing you can do remain silent. Keep quiet. seek forgiveness, do not mess your tongue, your mouth with an accusation, a rumor a slander about someone you don't even know you don't even have witness. Someone said look, I'm telling you, I'm telling you, I guarantee you these two are having an affair. slovin Allah, May Allah forgive us. These are statements that are flying around. Technology has made it simple for slander to be spread. And do you know what the number of people earning the Wrath of

00:07:12--> 00:07:54

Allah subhanho wa Taala is simply increased because technology, you have the broadcast facility on your phone whereby a click of the button does not send the message to one person, but to hundreds of 1000s May Allah forgive us be very, very careful how you use technology. One small accusation can result in your downfall today, we complain about lack of contentment. We complain about this about that we complain about so much we are leading lives that are full of disaster. But we don't know perhaps we have hurt or harmed a friend of Allah subhanho wa Taala we have falsely accused an innocent person and we are simply being punished because the Hadith says man, Lee and then to Bill

00:07:54--> 00:08:00

Harvey, whoever has hurt or harmed a friend of mine. I've announced a war against them.

00:08:02--> 00:08:38

A wall that you and I can never win. If Allah declares war against someone, the game is over. That is Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the best thing to do, be silent. Use your tongue to remember Allah to say good words, have good thoughts of your fellow human beings. good thoughts. You see two people speaking for example, you may know they're not supposed to be speaking the way they are speaking, but don't suddenly accuse them of the worst possible thing. You might want to say perhaps there is something wrong, perhaps the brother is assisting the sister, perhaps there is some need that was being fulfilled and met. Look at good things it's called has not been to have good thoughts for our

00:08:38--> 00:09:23

fellow believers. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us it is reported. And it is said that when a person's habits are dirty themselves, they begin to think that everyone else has the same sickness and perhaps has the same habits. But let's realize Allah subhanho wa Taala has definitely has definitely kept goodness in thinking good about others. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has as a result of that kept something beautiful people would also think good about us, may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us. So these are verses introductory verses within the surah. Now, the issue was when you see someone and you have four eyewitnesses, you bring them forth, they need to bear witness. Firstly,

00:09:23--> 00:10:00

they need to be very, very good people who do not miss a prayer, who are who do not have a blemish on their slate, and then they will bear witness as to the act itself and the details of it in front of a judge and they will bear witness separately and their witness must concur. Their evidence must be exactly the same and then we will take it to the next level. Now, this shows us that obviously it is more a deterrent than anything else because it is virtually impossible for for very good Muslims to be witnessing an act of adultery and to watch this

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

people and to be able to bear witness later on. Because you and I know that a good Muslim when we see or when any one of us for that matter if we were decent enough, if we see something immoral going on, the best thing we would do is look away. Don't you agree? Look away none of your business.

00:10:18--> 00:10:55

I see people are silent. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. It reminds me of people thinking, perhaps we take our phones out and quickly video and stuff it alone. You know, we saw I saw a little cartoon sometime back of a person. And they were trying to depict how we've all become enslaved by the mobile phone such that we don't help the one needing help. They say a person drowning with one hand floating meaning going up and down the water. And they are saying how and everyone's just holding on and taking pictures instead of diving in and helping them now Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. This is the world and this is what we've become. We've become people who are enslaved by

00:10:55--> 00:10:59

technology, to the degree that we forget what's right and wrong in simple terms.

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

So there was an incident that occurred more than once at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. This is a hadith I'm going to mention very, very interesting, but very serious. It's Mustafa con la hadith of Sal, it means that a Saudi Arabia the time he says there was a man known as a way Middle Atlantic, remember that name away Middle Atlantic, I'll be your loved one. So he caught his wife with someone, and he didn't know what to do, because he just heard that you need to have four eyewitnesses or you will be lashed.

00:11:31--> 00:11:54

So he asked his friend, his friend was asked him if I do the long run. He says, Look, this is what has happened. And what is the ruling regarding a person who doesn't have the witness, but it's their own spouse, and they have seen it with their own eyes. They don't have witnesses. By the time they go out to get the witnesses. Everything is over and done. And the person is underway and the story is over. So I asked him if he

00:11:55--> 00:12:34

was asked to ask Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this hadith is Mustafa Ali. So he goes to Mohammed salatu salam. And he asked him or messenger What if someone sees their own spouse with their own eyes? And they don't have witness and they don't know what to do? Because should they go out and get the witness and or what should happen? So Mohammed salatu salam didn't like the question. Obviously, it was a very low question in the sense that, yes, the men wanted to know. But the reality this is not common of the believing women. It is not common of the believing women. So Mohammed salatu salam delayed in the answer, and revelation had come. So when asked him the ID,

00:12:34--> 00:13:12

it'll be a lot when he went back. He was met, by a way, Middle Atlantic, viola, and who asked him what happened? He said, I didn't really get an answer. He says, Well, I'm going to go to Mohammed salatu salam, and I'm going to ask him myself. So he built up the courage. He plucked up the courage and went in the presence of the companions and he says, oh, messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if someone has seen their spouse, and they don't have the four witnesses that are required, what should happen and how should they deal with it? Muhammad Salallahu Salam says, Allah has revealed verses of the Quran regarding your issue Subhana Allah. So what are these verses? Beautiful verses

00:13:12--> 00:13:24

West number six of surah. Two more right at the beginning. Allah says one levena Yama moon as huazhong Zhang mala mia colome Shahada Illa

00:13:25--> 00:13:40

for those who have accused their own wives, and they don't have the four witnesses besides themselves, they are the only witnesses then they should do the following Allah says for Shahada Ahadi him about Russia had

00:13:41--> 00:13:41

been

00:13:42--> 00:14:21

in hula Mino saw the thing, they should bear witness under oath in the presence of obviously the justice system and the other spouse, that by the name of Allah, I swear by Allah that I saw the following. And what I saw is definitely the truth and I am truthful. So they bear witness or they take the oath once they take it twice, they take it thrice, they take it four times, what do they say? Well law he I am truthful in what I have said. Each time they bear witness or they swear an oath, it is considered as one witness.

00:14:22--> 00:14:52

So a way middle Arjuna near the Allahu anhu was asked to bring his wife along. He brought his wife along in the presence of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he was asked to swear the oath, he swore an oath four times to say, I swear that what I am saying is the truth I am truthful. And then the first time the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him, You need to now swear an oath or you need to invoke the curse of Allah subhanho wa Taala on you, if you are telling a lie.

00:14:54--> 00:14:58

Allah says, Welcome Isa to an Allah tala.

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

I mean, I mean, he bore witness four times, right? The fifth one is, may the curse of Allah be on me if I'm telling a lie.

00:15:09--> 00:15:33

Now that it happened five times, the punishment is necessary on the female or on the person being accused, but they are given the option, the option of clarifying their name, equating, you know, coming back with another oath that is opposite to the one that was just born by the spouse. So Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam asks the woman,

00:15:34--> 00:15:59

would you like to plead guilty? Or would you like to swear four times that he is telling a lie? So she says, I will swear four times that he is telling a lie. So she swore the first time an oath that he was lying the second time and Oh, he was lying, the third time and the fourth time, and the first time she was asked to say, may the anger of Allah be upon me if he's telling the truth.

00:16:01--> 00:16:04

While Kami Santa Ana Baba Ma,

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

can I mean I saw the thing, that was the first one, may they may the anger of Allah be upon me if he is telling the truth. So once that happened, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, we can no longer punish her. But something very, very serious takes place as a result of falsely accusing your spouse of adultery, or even accusing her if it is not false, or saying that she did this automatically. If this has happened, officially, in the presence of the justice system, it would mean the marriage is dissolved, and it is broken. And they cannot get together ever again, no matter how hard they try. So you need to be careful. You know, normally people get married, they can dissolve the marriage in

00:17:00--> 00:17:43

one of a few ways. One of them is to get a nullification. One of them is to get the dissolution of that marriage, and one of them is to get a divorce from the spouse. So there are a few ways of dissolving the marriage. And the most serious from amongst them, is when you've accused someone officially in the presence of the justice system, the legal system, officially properly, that means the marriage is over. And you can never ever get back together with that spouse. So let's be careful my brothers and sisters, before we accuse anyone, and before we accuse one another, it's a statement that seems very light on the tongue, but the consequences are absolutely severe. Yes, one might ask

00:17:43--> 00:18:21

what if we just said it in passing? If you said it in passing, the Wrath of Allah is indeed on its way unless we seek forgiveness, but perhaps it would not result in the breakup of the marriage because it was not officially done. Like I said, and I made it clear for the marriage to be broken irreparably. It needs to be done officially. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Forgive us, may he never, ever let that happen to us. I mean, so this is what happened to away Mira la Janani rhodiola Han. And these were the beautiful verses of this beautiful surah we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us a lesson from this. The same had happened according to an iteration of Buhari by an

00:18:21--> 00:18:52

ambassador of the Allahu anhu to another companion known as Hilah lipno, Amaya raphaela. One who also happened to accuse his wife, and they also had the same system, they also had the same oaths that were taken. And at the same time, both of them took the oath and therefore the woman was not punished because she also took an oath that I didn't do it. So whatever had happened, it was obviously in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah knows best. But at the same time, we have just been taught the legal system here when it comes to the Sharia.

00:18:54--> 00:19:39

My brothers and sisters, I want to spend a little bit of time with the next story, which is one of the most serious accusations that was ever leveled in history. It was an accusation leveled against Sharia law. The Hadith is Mata fatale, and it is reported by Sharia law herself. The most pure of all women to exist was a Sharia law. She was purified and cleansed. And her innocence was mentioned by Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran, in Surah. To know and we happen to read it often. And this is why those who accused are a Sharia law of immorality and of evil. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from such statements. They have uttered the greatest blasphemy against Muhammad

00:19:39--> 00:19:47

Sallallahu Sallam and against Allah subhanho wa Taala because it is Allah himself, who clarified her name and who purified her. So what was the accusation?

00:19:49--> 00:20:00

The Hadith says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he used to go out on some of these journeys he used to take with him. Some of his spouses, sometimes one sometimes more than one and sometimes he used to drink

00:20:00--> 00:20:40

A lot as to whom he should take, so he would draw a lot. The eyeshadow The law says, On this particular occasion It was me who was fortunate to be traveling with Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, we went for the Battle of banal Masonic. And on our way back from vanilla masala the army had stopped, and they had paused for a while in one place. And when they were getting ready to leave, I noticed that my necklace was missing. Like we said before, this was not the first time that the necklace of eyeshadow Ella and I went missing. But her necklace went missing. And she started hunting for it. And she moved a little bit of a distance. And before she knew it, she had a carrier that would carry

00:20:40--> 00:21:02

her that was covered known as a hole in the Arabic language. So the Sahaba, the Allahu anhu would lift up the entire carriage from the top of the camel and put it down. And then the women would actually get down and later on when they wanted to leave, they would lift up that carriage put it back on top of the camel, and they would leave. So they lifted the carriage without knowing that she's not in them.

00:21:03--> 00:21:42

And they put it on the camel and they departed. And a little while later she came in, she noticed the Army's gone. So she decided, you know what, let me sit, put exactly where I am. And I don't want to move because they will realize it at some stage and they will come back. So after some time, she noticed that these people are gone, and they are not coming back. But she noticed there was one person who had come and who was also proceeding in a similar direction, a great companion of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam who Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam really loved and respected and his name was soft one in Nova rhodiola one. And when he came, he noticed something black. This was after the

00:21:42--> 00:21:43

verses of hijab.

00:21:44--> 00:22:25

So he noticed it and he realized there is a person here lying down, and I shall the law says I had slipped. And I got up with this noise. And I noticed that this is a man and I knew himself when he blew up and he recognized that this was our issue. He did not say a single word. According to her. He did not say one word. He didn't speak to her. The only thing he did, he offered her help through the sign. And he ensured that she got on to his camel, and he happened to continue and carry on. He didn't even ask what went wrong and what happened, nothing at all so respectful and so honest. In the meantime, in Madina, munawwara as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and everybody arrived and

00:22:25--> 00:22:45

people found out that I shall have their loved one is missing the hypocrites headed by Abdullah hypnobabies saloon, they decided to create a rumor, and this rumor was that our Isha staff Illa May Allah forbid May Allah protect us all, from messing our tongues with such accusations against innocent people was having an affair?

00:22:48--> 00:23:12

With whom, oh with this guy known as someone I've known Rob pal, and as they entered Madina, munawwara you find the nudging of all the people you see there they are, look they coming and I shalonda was innocent She didn't even know what was going on. So finally don't worry about the Allah and he had no clue what was happening. And she went home and and you know, she didn't hear about any rumor. She didn't know about anything. But the rumor started and it started spinning.

00:23:14--> 00:23:17

May Allah forgive us today, Whatsapp has made it so easy for us

00:23:19--> 00:23:49

to publish rumors and to forward them while law he my brothers and sisters, the sin of forwarding something dirty is really so so grave that it will result sometimes in our lives being turned upside down. And we don't know why. But where are you abusing WhatsApp trying to accuse this one and that one and you know, slandering and rumor spreading Allah He we need to ask Allah for forgiveness. And we need to come back to the straight path. And we need to be responsible in the way that we use technology.

00:23:51--> 00:24:21

So I shall the law says that I didn't even know. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He heard the rumor. Abu Bakr Siddiq. Allah who heard the rumor they knew deep down this is just a rumor, because he knew his spouse. But at the same time, it's not easy for someone to clear the name of his own spouse. So Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam knew that at some point, Allah will reveal something in the meantime, he was silent. He didn't really take sides openly. But

00:24:22--> 00:24:35

it caused a lot of distress and discomfort he used to enter and his attitude to Sharia law had changed. He hadn't yet told her anything. And she was wondering why is he being so different? And he used to ask every time How is that one?

00:24:36--> 00:24:43

How is that one? How is how is you know what is this question? So Pinilla he used to enter again. How's that one? How is?

00:24:44--> 00:25:00

This question used to hurt Elena, she didn't know what to say what's going on? And the prophets of Salaam chose not to say any words nothing. So she didn't know. But she was distressed. And one day she went out with a lady known as omis. Who was it?

00:25:00--> 00:25:08

related to her and her father, and as she went out for an errand omo Mr. Says, destruction upon Mr.

00:25:09--> 00:25:33

So Mr. was the son of this lady and I shall go harnesses What do you mean? The men attended the Battle of bedroom? How can you make that against him? And he's your own son. So she says, Do you know what he's been saying? She says, No, what is he been saying? So Oh, Mr decided to tell I Sharia law, that my son is one of those who's going around spreading a rumor about you and so forth.

00:25:34--> 00:26:05

And she was shocked. She was stunned. She did not know about it. But prior to that, and she was now putting in all the pieces of the puzzle. This is why the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is asking me this question. And this is why his behavior towards me has changed. So she goes back to the home, she was crying, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came in, he asks the same question, and she says, oh, messenger, can I please go back to my parents for a while?

00:26:06--> 00:26:19

Subhana Allah, look at the etiquette we are learning here. I need to discuss this matter with my folks. It's a serious matter. It seems like the best thing for me to do here is to go and meet my mom and my dad and to talk to them about what's going on.

00:26:20--> 00:26:48

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam allows her to go now imagine Subhan Allah, a lot of people, if someone were to spread rumor about your spouse, I think a lot of people who actually break their marriages there and then without even thinking, May Allah forgive us. I hope that's not the case. That's never ever believe rumor. If that's the case, it's so easy for someone to break a beautiful home, but just spreading rumors. The typical anonymous call in the middle of the night. You know what? I am your husband's girlfriend.

00:26:49--> 00:27:29

Now Allah forgive us, these type of phone calls are the most dangerous. The believing woman would actually put the phone down and never ever believe someone who's anonymous. Not at all. Never. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us vice versa as well. So I shall ohana goes home. She cries to her mother, oh man, and she says Oh, my mother, you know, this is what's going on. The mother says I know what's going on. But my daughter, take it easy. erwinia alake Take it easy. You're a very pretty girl. And you know what you have a husband who really loves you. You're bound to have jealous elements who are definitely going to say things. Look at the beautiful advice. Not like today. They

00:27:29--> 00:27:32

would advise you pitching, make the marriage come back home. The house is open.

00:27:33--> 00:27:35

Typical advice of today.

00:27:36--> 00:28:15

Look at the difference. Mother says take it easy. You've got such a beautiful home. What a lovely husband. And people would be jealous. They would say things they would definitely say things about you. Just take it easy. So she began to cry. And she she says oh my mom, what should we do about it? She says, You know what? Ask Allah, Allah to Allah. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will open the doors. In the meantime, she began to cry, and she was crying. She says I cried so much. I had no tears left. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam goes out to speak to some of his best companions. He speaks to Ali, Vitali, Allahu Allah. You know what's happened? He says Yes. What should I do? A

00:28:15--> 00:28:59

little bit. llamando said, You know what? There are so many women out there. If you really want to know the truth, perhaps you can ask the maid, you know, the servants. The seven won't lie. Go and ask the servant. If this woman is actually a chaste woman, you know, proper, modest if she's straight. So they go to bury Ravana. They asked her and she has the best recommendations. She gives a reference for eyeshadow Ala Moana, that is the purest of the pure she says this is an innocent woman, absolutely innocent. She is dedicated to her spouse. In fact, she is dependent on what her spouse gives her and so on. So they heard that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asks Osama bin Zayed

00:28:59--> 00:29:41

rhodiola and Osama, you've heard what what happened? What's your opinion? He says, I've only known your family to be pure, to be clean, to be the best, the most honorable, and I don't believe what has happened. What the people are saying. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam then gets up on the member. And he says, Now he's visibly upset because now he knows that this is just a lie. But he says who is going to excuse me, regarding this man, Abdullah hypnobabies saloon, whose home has reached my own home, we need to penalize him and punish him. So the people from Madina munawwara some of them said, Yes, we will do this, and some of them said, we will do that and so on. But there

00:29:41--> 00:29:48

was no decision made as to the punishment of that particular man of the live no baby, no saloon who started the rumor.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

And when this rumor had started, the people fell into three categories. One, the true believers they said this is a lie. Completely abou Balaam sorry, Rob, the Allahu anhu

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

was one of them who when his wife said, Did you hear what people are saying? He said, Keep quiet. This is definitely a lie. It's clear fabrication.

00:30:08--> 00:30:12

Would you ever do that? She said no. Well, then Alisha is better than you. Ravi Allahu Allah.

00:30:14--> 00:30:48

Subhana Allah, look at that. You wouldn't do it. So keep quiet. I Shara Callahan is better than you. So the bulk of the believers, that was their reaction, they didn't entertain the rumor. We all should learn a lesson in our own lives. People spread rumors, don't entertain it, switch it off, block the person, why not put the phone down, get up and walk out of the discussion. That's your witness on the Day of Judgment. So panela were too shy? No, but those were all friends sitting they were just having fun. They were just acting. Are you going to sit with them when they burning in gentlemen? May Allah forgive us? May Allah not do that to us. The minimum you could do is get up and

00:30:48--> 00:31:16

walk out. Stop it, block it. Tell them this is wrong. I don't want to hear this. This was the true believers they reacted in this way. Then there was some such as misbehaved. No, I thought and a lot. They just had fun. They they enjoy the juicy gossip. Just like people you know, they call it punch x. Have you heard that? Now Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. They enjoy this gossip. Really, they want to carry the juicy details and marinated with the latest Indian spices.

00:31:18--> 00:31:57

Allah subhanho wa Taala Forgive us, honestly. And we carry the tail from pillar to post. And we add and subtract as we as it suits us in order to make it sound so beautiful. And guess what? It's Ramadan, and we are fasting and it's the last 10 days and it's a Friday, but we're not worried. It's okay. But that's what everyone is saying. Everyone is saying. So you just becoming a number with the rest of those who perhaps will be punished by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Let's be careful. So Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this category of people as well who loved to spread that rumor. And then there was the one who created the tail. He was the biggest of the lot the culprit Abdullah

00:31:57--> 00:32:43

hypno. ob econo saloon. So I shadow The law says after one month, I was sitting with my folks with my parents, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam entered, and he addressed me officially and properly he says, Oh, you know what? The people are saying, what has got to me is this and this and this regarding you. If you are, if you are innocent, Allah will reveal your innocence. And if you are guilty, ask Allah for forgiveness, Allah will forgive you. Look at this. He's saying to his wife, if you are guilty, ask Allah for forgiveness and return to Him, and He will forgive you. He is indeed most forgiving. She says, I looked at my father and I said, Oh, my father say something. Father says

00:32:43--> 00:32:47

I don't know what to say. Or my mother say something mother says I don't know what to say.

00:32:48--> 00:33:08

So she decided to speak. She says I said, Allah He Allah knows I'm innocent. If I say I'm innocent, you are not going to believe me. And Allah knows I'm innocent. If I say I am guilty, you will believe me, but I'm innocent. So she's saying the only thing I can say is what the father of use of La Sallam said,

00:33:09--> 00:33:10

What was that?

00:33:11--> 00:33:16

facade Oh, Jamie, voila.

00:33:17--> 00:33:18

Voila.

00:33:20--> 00:33:53

My patience is indeed beautiful. Allah is the one who will assist regarding what they are uttering against me. regarding what they are describing, it is Allah who will help. And she says, as I am crying, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had not yet moved, no one had moved and jabril alayhi salatu wa salam comes down to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there and then with the following verse, verse number 11 of surah to know in Medina Jaya Oh, Bill, if chaos battle.

00:33:54--> 00:33:59

Con, la Latta, Sabu shamala. Come back.

00:34:01--> 00:34:01

liquid

00:34:03--> 00:34:09

mixture subliminal eaten, while lady Kiba whom in whom?

00:34:13--> 00:34:57

Those who have come with that fabrication with the false accusation. They are a group from amongst you. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says abashiri Isha good news to you. Oh Anisha Allah has declared your innocence. from seven heavens. Subhana Allah. Allah has declared your innocence. And I shadowed Allah Han who was so so delighted. She says, I didn't even move. My mother says Get up and give him a hug. He says no, she says no, I'm just thanking Allah what has just happened? No. She was sitting thanking Allah subhanho wa Taala. She says, I knew I would clear my name because I was absolutely innocent. But I didn't expect verses of the Quran to come down to be recited forever and ever. So

00:34:57--> 00:35:00

Hannah law so this was the status of

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

Shadow the law. And the law says they are indeed a group from amongst you, those who created the fabrication do not think it is bad for you, it was in fact Good for you.

00:35:11--> 00:35:46

That's a powerful lesson for us all. When negative comments are being uttered about you, it's very good for you. Maybe through that you achieve elevation you wouldn't have had they not uttered all these bad words about you. When people have rumors, slander that they spread regarding any one of us, we should not think for a moment that Allah forgot us. That is our ticket to paradise. Perhaps all their good deeds will come to us if they have any. And if they don't, our evil goes to them. What better way of entering paradise could they have been a little bit of patience regarding the dirty statements of people of this world, and we get paradise for free. So Allah says it wasn't bad,

00:35:46--> 00:36:01

it's good for you. And for everyone who has missed their mouths with that accusation shall be a portion of the punishment and the one who created the tail, the head of the lot will definitely be served a very, very great punishment by Allah subhanho wa Taala.

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