Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

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

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala VL mursaleen Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa tabin woman tibia humby Sonny Nila Medina.

00:00:20 --> 00:00:38

We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household and all his companions May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them all and bless every single one of us. And May He grant us all cure from the sicknesses and illnesses that we may be facing. I mean,

00:00:40 --> 00:01:30

my brothers and sisters, we are going through the verses of the Koran and going through some of the reasons of revelation of some of these verses and yesterday, I had promised you that I would start off by making mention of the story of the key of the cab. And this narration is made mention of By the way, narrated by bus or the Ola one. And there is another narration which is made mention of by Allah He de amatola la. In his book known as reasons of revelation he has a book known as Babu. So, there are two narrations and the reason why I make mention of the fact that they are two separate narrations is because the person involved known as Earth man of Natal ha, there is a discrepancy as

00:01:30 --> 00:01:42

to whether he accepted Islam upon the victory of Mecca, or whether he accepted Islam, just prior to the victory of Mecca between her day Libya, and the victory of Mecca.

00:01:43 --> 00:02:07

There is also a question as to whether it is exactly the same person because some make mention of earthman ebene talhah. And some say earthman Ebony Abu talhah. So if it is the nephew and the uncle, then there are two different people. However, let's go with a common duration of a Wahidi. and thereafter I'll make quick mention of the other narration as well.

00:02:08 --> 00:02:51

He says at the time of the victory of Makkah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam entered Mecca and one of the most important things to be done was to get to the Kaaba, to open it to remove the idols and so on. This was an extremely important event. When he entered Mecca to mocha Rama he actually entered with so much of humility that his head was so low, it was close to the neck of the camera. Unlike other leaders, if they were to enter victorious, they would be a pompous entry with a lot of fanfare, surrounded by this entry with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he knew that this is the point of success, it is victory from Allah subhanho wa Taala. If Allah wanted, they would have been

00:02:51 --> 00:03:37

no victory here. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant us victory at all times, and to protect us from all forms of defeat and loss. I mean, so my brothers and sisters, when he entered Mecca, Tomoko Rama, one of the first things he did was, he asked for the key of the Kaaba and he asked for a man of Nutella. The reason why this man of Metallica was because this man's family from generations had been responsible for the key of the cabinet. They used to keep it and it used to run down the family. Everyone knew that this family holds the key with MonaVie talhah when he heard that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was entering muckety muck arama he climbed up above the

00:03:37 --> 00:03:43

Kaaba trying to hide and he had locked the Kaaba and he took the keys with him. So what happened is

00:03:46 --> 00:03:54

he went up with the key they were looking for him. When they found him Olive Nabi fallibility Allahu anhu found him and amazingly

00:03:57 --> 00:04:04

Sorry, I'm just distracted by the light here. I think it happens every day, my brother, we need to be a little bit more wary of that inshallah. So,

00:04:06 --> 00:04:10

I live in Abu Talib rhodiola and who went up and he looked for a smile.

00:04:12 --> 00:04:54

And what happened? He found him at the top of the cabin, he asked him for the key and he refused. He said, Look, I'm not giving you the key. So according to the duration of a ye D, he became a little bit aggressive Alec, Natalia Lohan who took it by force. And he rushed down and he gave Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the key they opened the Kaaba Mashallah, they went in, and obviously Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the long story he read, to rock out of salah and so on. And as he came out, he met his uncle al Abbas Ibn Abdul muttalib. And Abbas Ibn Abdul muttalib sees the key of the Kava and he says, Oh messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, we are responsible for

00:04:54 --> 00:05:00

the Zamzam and for feeding, or should I say for quenching the thirst of the who judge those who come to this house.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:41

We are responsible for quenching their thirst Subhana Allah. And if you were to give us this key, the honor would be doubled. As you know, we are one family, you know, he's the uncle of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, give us the key, the honor will be double, it will be a double honor for us, we will have the key as well as the responsibility of the simsim and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, at that juncture received revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala According to homerville, hubbub of the Allah and the verse was revealed inside the cabin narration of Allah and he says, when the prophets Allah wa salam was coming out of the cabinet, he was busy reading this verse, and we

00:05:41 --> 00:05:52

had never heard it before meaning it was revealed inside the cabinet. So what is the verse, verse number 58 of swords to me sir, in a lot more

00:05:55 --> 00:05:57

detail Illa.

00:05:59 --> 00:06:06

Allah instructs you to return that which is entrusted to those whom it belongs to.

00:06:08 --> 00:06:48

If you are entrusted with something, you return it to the one whom it belongs to. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called Ali, Vitali Allah and says go back to Earth man of Natal ha, call him and apologize to him because of the manner in which you had treated him earlier. And give him back the key. So Allah tala Allahu anhu goes to a man of metal hand the man was concerned he was worried because moments earlier, there was a little bit of harshness in dealing with him. And now suddenly, there was an apology. There was some beautiful speech and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his instruction was fulfilled. I live Nabil Talib rhodiola and who goes and returns this

00:06:48 --> 00:07:36

beautiful key and he says, oh, man, this is the key. And he surprised he said moments ago, you were quite aggressive and now you are apologizing and coming with this key What's happening? He says Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed verses regarding you. And these are the verses in Allah morrocan and to Abdul Amati Illa Allah, Allah has instructed, instructed you to fulfill the trust to those whom it belongs to. And according to the duration of an ad that is the point where of man of Mittal has accepted Islam, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant us goodness, he obviously understood that this is an issue of trust. It is something that is higher than or thicker than

00:07:36 --> 00:08:00

blood. Although al Abbas ibn Abdullah Polly being the family of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was requesting the same key, it was not given to him. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one step further, he told us man of Nutella, and this is according to all generations, he said, Nobody shall take this key from you and your progeny up to the end of time, except the one who is an oppressor.

00:08:01 --> 00:08:46

So my brothers and sisters just for sake of information, to this day, the same family holds the key Subhana Allah, the same family holds the key of the cabin. And this is evidence enough to prove the existence of whatever we've been saying regarding muckety muck, Rama and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this is the family. So the other generation which I had made mention of just in passing away, veneration of Allah and he says that a man of Metallica was already a Muslim, but he was fearing that the key might be snatched away from his family. So that is why he was a little bit apprehensive when it came to giving the key and later on, he gave the key and the story continues as

00:08:46 --> 00:09:23

per the other one. May Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us a lesson. And may we be from amongst those who can return What does not belong to us, to those whom it belongs to no matter what it is, a lot of the times in our case, I think it would be wealth. Sometimes we owe a little bit of money to people and it doesn't ever go back to them. May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah forgive us, and may He strengthen us. Verse number 60 of Sugata Nisa, a beautiful verse were mentioned is being made of the sickness that lies within certain people. Today, if I have a problem with you, we are both Muslim in what is the proper way of resolving it. I need to look at what Allah says, I need to look at what

00:09:23 --> 00:09:59

Islam says I need to look at what the Sharia law says. And perhaps I need to resolve the matter that way, because we are believers. But sometimes people are weak. Do you know what they do? They look at whether whether they are gaining or not by going to resolve the matter according to Allah subhanho wa Taala. If they are gaining, they say no problem. Let's go to that Allah. Let's go and sorted out. Let's go to this panel. Let's go to so and so. And we are mentioning names of all scholars of Islam. Because we know that we're going to get something when we go there. And the minute we know we're going to lose, I'm taking you to court. Even the scholars of Islam sometimes have a weakness where

00:09:59 --> 00:10:00

they want

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

To take another to court, because they did not resolve the matter according to Allah and his lawsuit, it's a weakness shapen is bad. Remember, the bottom line, people are good, always shaytan is bad. So therefore he makes them bad temporarily. Sometimes that temporarily is a little bit long. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, forgive us, we tried to look at it as positive as possible.

00:10:23 --> 00:10:37

So my brothers and sisters, there was a Muslim who had a dispute with a Jewish man at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this narration is mentioned by imagery. And he has narrated from a shabby

00:10:38 --> 00:11:09

so he says, the Jewish man said, I want to go to your prophet for justice, because I know he wants to take a bribe. And I know He will speak the truth. And I want to go to your people and the Muslim man who was very weak. He says, No, I'd like to go to a certain fortune teller from amongst you guys, a lot of love. Imagine when you know that someone accepts a bribe, quick to go they know put a little bit in his hand and just tell him Hey, you know the story. He says, I know May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us.

00:11:10 --> 00:11:48

luck, Allah subhanho wa Taala help us you know, bribery and corruption is destroying nations upon nations. And this is something that has become a problem a menace. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us? May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala help improve our nations or May he improve our nation's I mean, so when that happened, verses were revealed exposing this man was number 60 of Salatu Nisa Alam Tara Ellen Latina otonashi BAM minun kita. alimta, Illa Latina Arizona,

00:11:49 --> 00:11:55

man Obama Bhima, Zilla la cama de la mina public URI Dona

00:11:56 --> 00:12:00

loc bajo de Vaca omeo ob,

00:12:01 --> 00:12:07

Allah says, Do you see the one who claims that he believes in Allah.

00:12:09 --> 00:12:49

He believes in that which has revealed to you and that which was revealed before you, but he has gone to the root in order to achieve justice and he has been instructed to disbelieve in it. When it comes to justice. Look at what he's done. He's gone somewhere where he thinks that regarding this worldly life, I'm going to achieve something may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us brothers and sisters, if you receive that which does not belong to you. Remember, it is a piece of the fire you have the option of taking it consuming it and being served the punishment or leaving it being honest and perhaps suffering a small loss in this world. But you have succeeded in the life after May Allah

00:12:49 --> 00:12:55

subhanho wa Taala replace whatever has been taken from us with that which is even better, I mean,

00:12:57 --> 00:13:02

then verse number 65 of Surah Nisa also something extremely interesting.

00:13:03 --> 00:13:47

The Hadees is made mention of it is motif upon Allah What is the meaning of motif upon Allah? It is upon the highest level of authenticity. Imam Bukhari and Muslim Rahmatullah Allah Hema. They have mentioned it when both of them have mentioned the narration. It is called Mustafa con la, the highest level of authenticity, the statement is absolutely accurate. So, verse number 65. If we look at the story behind it, Abdullah hypnobabies, who was the cousin of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had a dispute with a certain men some narrations make mention of the name, but the authentic narration doesn't have the name of the next men.

00:13:48 --> 00:14:07

He had a dispute regarding water. You know, the water belonged to Abdullah Abu Zubaydah the Allah and he used to use it for his field for his orchard. And as it came, it was up to him to give it to the next man to use a little bit less, and send it perhaps for the next man to benefit from.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:26

So the other man took him to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and told him, this man is not sharing the water with me. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told his cousin, the live news available the alarm and he said, You know what? Why don't you take some water for yourself, and then let it go and let him also benefit from the water.

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


00:14:30 --> 00:14:59

this man, he was a little bit surprised. I don't know for what reason? He wanted the water for himself. And he says, oh, Mohammed, are you being lenient on him solely because he's your cousin. Listen to this, telling the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that you are bending justice because this man is the cousin of yours. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam color changed, he became upset. Obviously, he was upset. He said

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

Oh Abdullah Abu Zubaydah take the water and don't give him anything. Because now this is justice initially I was trying to be lenient What did not belong to that man, I was trying to tell you to give him some, but since he is being a person who wants to accuse us of taking sides because of blood and because of relation, we want to tell you real justice is that it is your water, you don't have to give him anything. So Hannah law now the man felt bad, obviously because now you know, they say he went for something that was not his and he lost even that which he thought was his

00:15:34 --> 00:15:35

Subhana Allah.

00:15:37 --> 00:15:43

So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed versus explaining that none of you are true believers until

00:15:44 --> 00:16:17

you make the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the judge between you and your disputes, whatever his decision is, is final and you should feel good about it. You should not be feeling in your heart that there is anything wrong with this particular ruling of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam listen to this verse, verse number 65 of Surah Nisa, Fela bakerella you may know you had chemo kaffee Masha rabina home from Allah jiofi sues him. Hello Jim

00:16:19 --> 00:16:47

Nimmo does NEMA. Indeed, by Europe, they are not considered true believers. Until they make you the judge in their disputes. And then they find no negative feeling in their hearts regarding the judgment. You have to feel that this judgment Not only is it correct, but I'm so happy. I'm so happy to be surrendering to what was the decision of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my brothers and sisters.

00:16:48 --> 00:17:23

Many of us when we are told what Allah says, when we are told what the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said, we find it difficult to accept. When it comes to matters of divorce matters of child custody matters. So many other matters matters of business. We feel upset sometimes we say no, no, no, I'm not worried. It's okay. But someone is reading a verse for you. Someone is explaining the Hadith for you. 20 people explained it to you. No, no, it's fine. It's okay. We need to learn from this verse that we cannot call ourselves true believers. If that is the case, how can you claim to be a follower of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam you love him more than anything and then

00:17:25 --> 00:17:38

you prove that it's only a claim it's not really the truth. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to surrender to the instructions of his and that of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:17:40 --> 00:17:56

Then talking about love, and those who claim to love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. There is a narration mentioned in Bharani by Ayesha de la. Some of the narrations make mention of the name and I will say the name so burn. So burn was a young man.

00:17:57 --> 00:18:41

And he loved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam so much, so much so much. One day he came in he was very, very sad. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asks him Oban, what's wrong? What is it? He says, oh, messenger, I love you more than I love myself. When I look at you, I'm so happy. I when I leave you, I cannot wait to get back to you. I love you more than myself and everybody else. And today, I was busy thinking that I miss you so much while you're here and alive, that I like to rush and come back and just watch your face. It brings about so much of calmness and coolness to my heart. And I was thinking on the Day of Judgment. And later on, we will be separated because you are

00:18:41 --> 00:19:13

a prophet, you will be resurrected with the highest of the high. And you will be going into gentlemen, even if I make it into general, I'm going to be in a very, very low position. I'm not going to be in your standard. I'm not going to be in your level, you will be high with the other messengers and so on and the highest of the lot And where will I be and if I don't make it to General, then perhaps we might never see you again. So that is why I'm sad. So Panama Look at his concern. He says I'm going to miss you or messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:19:14 --> 00:19:59

So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed verses in this regard. Verse number 69 of Surah Nisa, you want to make it to Jenna? You want to be in the companionship of Muhammad? sallallahu alayhi wasallam Do you want to be with those who are the pious and the predecessors those who were companions of the Prophet peace be upon him of the highest level, the martyrs and so on? Well, the verses were my opinion a la Havas, hula, hula Kamara la Vina Anna Mala Mala him meenan been our C d sidiki. Noah Shahada, he was solid in una una ecoffee that he can fuck Lumina la de Vaca fabula

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

Allah, Allah Subhana. Allah says, Whoever follows Allah and His Messenger, whoever follows Allah and His Messenger, he will be resurrected with those whom Allah has blessed from the prophets, so you will be resurrected with the prophets and those who are truthful, acidic, and those who are martyrs, Shahada, and those who are pious assala him and that is the best companionship you could ever have. So if you want to be with Allah, or should I say resurrected with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the others we just mentioned, what you need to do follow Allah and His or soon when you to Ilaha wa Rasulullah for Allah ecoman la Vina Nam Allahu la follow Allah and His apostle and this

00:20:50 --> 00:21:14

is what will happen Subhana Allah, the tears that roll down the cheeks May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us such tears, this man fell burn was so so touched. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant us this love of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that makes us adopt the commands that he has come with, and that makes us abstain from the prohibitions. I mean,

00:21:16 --> 00:21:18

verse number 59 of Salatu Nisa

00:21:19 --> 00:21:32

also a hadith Mata con la and I've explained what exactly that means by bnab bus or the llama. And, and also explained by Ali, Vitali rhodiola, when he says there was a man known as Abdullah hypno fidessa, a semi

00:21:33 --> 00:22:11

of the Allah and he was a companion of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he was placed as a leader for one of the platoons and he had gone with a group of people upon the instruction of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the people to listen and obey. Listen to this man and obey him because he's your, he's your leader, basically. So as they went up the livelihood of Allah and he became upset with them for some reason. So he gave him a weird instruction. What was the instruction? He told him? Didn't the messenger tell you to obey me? sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they said, Yes. Okay, get some firewood. They got the firewood,

00:22:11 --> 00:22:15

light a fire, they lit a fire. Now jump into the fire.

00:22:16 --> 00:22:29

Wow, jumping into the fire. So the the Sahaba della Han those who were there, they looked at one another. They were holding back one another. They said, Hey, we follow the messenger to be saved from the fire.

00:22:30 --> 00:22:46

And this man is telling us to go into the fire. No ways we're not going to go into this fire. No matter what. He can be the amine. He can be whoever he wants. We're going back to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and we're going to ask him about this. So they went back to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and as I said, this narration is absolutely authentic.

00:22:47 --> 00:22:57

When they went back to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you know what he told him? He says, There is no obedience for a creature

00:22:59 --> 00:23:44

over the instruction of the Creator Himself, you cannot obey people when they instruct you to do something against the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says, had they entered the fire, they would have never come out of that fire up to the Day of Judgment, because it is foolish. This shows us that when there is something absolutely unacceptable and it's gone totally against what Allah and His Messenger have taught. You do not obey those in authority over you. Subhan Allah, quite simple. And this is why the great narration la tollemache lukin female Seattle colic, there is no obedience for a creed for a creature over the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala or in the disobedience of

00:23:44 --> 00:24:01

Allah subhanho wa Taala so Mashallah, what a beautiful incident and this is made mention of like I said, in the books of Hadith, Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the verses regarding this. Yeah, you have Nadine, I'm an attorney or law attorney or masuleh

00:24:04 --> 00:24:11

Oh you who believe follow Allah and follow His Messenger and follow those in authority over you obey Him.

00:24:13 --> 00:24:15

It doesn't stop there, the verse continues

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

to finish

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


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

manana Bella he will mean, if there is a dispute between you and the one in authority over you, then you go back to Allah and His Messenger only, and you remove the one in authority from the equation.

00:24:37 --> 00:25:00

So you're instructed to obey three categories, Allah, His Messenger and those in authority. When there is a discrepancy between you and those in authority. Go back to Allah and His messenger. Forget about those in authority. Allah subhanho wa Taala help us such that we being in authority of a lot of people, every one of us here is in authority over someone somewhere, whether it's your children, your family,

00:25:00 --> 00:25:18

members in someone else, perhaps, maybe if you might be a child still, perhaps you are an exception. But once you become an adult, there are people. If you are, for example, a teacher in a classroom, you happen to be teaching children you're in authority over them. Bear in mind what you instruct them, let it never be against the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:25:19 --> 00:25:56

Similarly, those who are trying to become better Muslims and they want to dress according to Islam, or they want to fast properly or they want to read their Salah, or they want to do something that will please Allah subhanho wa Taala it's an instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Sometimes their folks make it difficult for them. I know of so many parents who have told their daughters who want to wear the job, that you know what, you're too young, you shouldn't do it. What will people say? At this time? It's difficult to adopt Islam so Allah will forgive you don't worry. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. That's what people do. They sin and then they have hope in the mercy of Allah.

00:25:56 --> 00:26:10

How can we do that? A person says Don't worry, I will drink this alcohol. I know Allah is most forgiving. How do you know you might die in the condition? May Allah subhanho wa Taala not do that to us? May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us all, a beautiful lesson we learn from that.

00:26:11 --> 00:26:33

Then the Battle of perfect took place and certain people were martyred. You know about that. So the hypocrites in Madina munawwara when these people returned, they passed the statement they said, You know what? had these who are martyred, not gone out in the first place, they wouldn't have died, they would have been alive, they wouldn't have been killed, they would have actually been alive.

00:26:35 --> 00:27:10

Now, that's a dangerous statement. Something has happened. People have passed away. And now you come and say, had they not done this, then this would have happened? That was the decree of Allah no matter what. Let me tell you, my brothers and sisters, we cannot stop our lives thinking that I might die. Your Life has to carry on you still have to catch a flight. No one plans for anything to happen to that flight. But if something does happen, that was Allah subhanho wa Taala. Perhaps you have to drive on the road. You can't say I'm not going to drive because I might die. Allah is telling us that you might even die in your own home. So what are you doing? Listen to the first that

00:27:10 --> 00:27:15

was revealed verse number 78 of Salatu Nisa, in a matter coup de como el momento.

00:27:17 --> 00:27:33

De barro, Jim Shahada, no matter where you are, this will overtake you, if your time is up, it will come to you. Even if you happen to be upon the peaks of the towers that are well built and 45 you want to be right at the top of Butch halifa for example,

00:27:34 --> 00:27:36

this will still come to you.

00:27:37 --> 00:27:41

For me, it's actually closer to the angel of death. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us.

00:27:43 --> 00:28:11

May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us really, the point being raised is no matter where you are, death will come to you. You continue with your life, take the necessary precautions and keep on going. The necessary precaution is very important. Because you cannot say okay, I'm jumping into this. You know, I'm going to do a bungee jump without the rope and I'll see if that is written it will happen. You're a fool. You take all precautions you know I'm skydiving without a parachute. What the food.

00:28:12 --> 00:28:37

But if you've taken all necessary precautions by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala safety measures all intact all in place, go ahead and continue. The same applies those who belong to an army or defending for example, they cannot say okay, we're not going. They are conscripted sometimes, because that is how you will defend the nation. Every single nation has an army to protect it. So they cannot say look, I'm not going to be joined because you know what?

00:28:38 --> 00:29:28

I don't know I might die, then you might die. Look at Harley Davidson when he wrote the law, and he took part in all major battles. And yet he died on his bed, not in any one of those battles. And he says that, look, there is no place on my body, except that it has gashes of wounds that have been afflicted during wars. And yet I'm dying on my deathbed. So let the cowards actually see. That means if someone is a coward, he doesn't want to be brave. Let him learn a lesson that death will come to you no matter where it is meant to come to you. And if it is not meant to come to you, you can have jumped into the flame and still you it won't happen. May Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us from

00:29:28 --> 00:29:30

those who jump into flames.

00:29:31 --> 00:29:47

It's just an example obviously. The last verse I want to speak about today, verse number 83 of Sadat and myself, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about something very important in relation in Sahih Muslim, the early integration that I made mention of regarding

00:29:48 --> 00:29:59

the dying, and the hypocrites in their comment of the people who were martyred in offered was inhalation of ignorant bustle of the Allahu anhu mentioned by Allah ed in his book

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

Bubba Missouri,

00:30:02 --> 00:30:10

then in Sahih, Muslim and eration of Amara blah blah blah and he says I entered the masjid very important quick lesson.

00:30:11 --> 00:30:31

I entered mosquito number one and I heard the people they were looking upset they were playing with the the soil. You know when the dust when people are upset they take these small, like pellets like small stones and they hit them. And they were saying the Prophet has divorced his wives the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has divorced his wives, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has divorced his wives.

00:30:32 --> 00:31:03

And yet that didn't happen. So Allah Allah says, I stood up at the door, and I started screaming loudly. His daughter was one of those who was married to the promises and then he says the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not divorce his wife and he repeated that a few times loudly. Why were they saying this? Just because the prophets of Allah Salaam stayed away from his wife for a period of time. rumors spread, that all the wives are divorced. You know, people love rumor. So Allah revealed a powerful verse,

00:31:04 --> 00:31:09

verse number 83, of Surah Nisa. Allah says, What either

00:31:10 --> 00:31:37

Amina Omnia will have the other ob palabra de la masala, Isla Emery Minh home, la Lima Hoon levina una hoomin home. Allah says whenever news of security, meaning good news, or news of fear or bad news comes to the hypocrites. Their quality is that they broadcast it immediately.

00:31:39 --> 00:32:06

Any news comes to you broadcast within one second? WhatsApp, BBM everything buzzing Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and you don't even know this news. You haven't even verified it. And it's gone one way. So panela the whole world knows it. And then you realize, oh, gosh, it was actually false. Now what do you do? They say the moon is making tawaf. Have you heard that one? And the whole world thinks the moon is making the off at 3:25am? You seen that one?

00:32:07 --> 00:32:09

May Allah forgive us? lahoma Stan.

00:32:12 --> 00:32:56

So this verse was revealed to say, had they returned that news to the messenger or to those who were able to understand it? Perhaps they would have achieved or benefited from it? Or people who would have known what it's all about, they would have been able to explain correctly. So yes, it was clarified at the time, but the lesson we have for ourselves, my brothers and sisters, let us not become trigger happy. You know, you hear something and immediately you forwarded, find out, take your time, you know people have good news. And immediately you want to tell the whole world. Take your time, make dua to Allah, thank Allah, not everyone is going to be happy for your happiness.

00:32:56 --> 00:33:15

Remember that not everyone is going to be sad for your sadness. Some people will become happy when you are sad. Some people will become angry when you are happy. Remember this, they are hypocrites out there. They are people who dislike you sometimes for no valid reason. They might have a reason, just because of what you look like. But that's not a valid reason. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us.

00:33:16 --> 00:33:54

So my brothers and sisters, remember this. Don't just broadcast everything and anything. Keep it to yourself for a while, see if necessary, then let those who have to No, no. You know, sometimes people get engaged. That news of engagement. Yes, it's brilliant. It's very, very good, Mashallah. It's happy. And it's good to let people know. But I would say get your Nika done as soon as possible because today, the minute you get engaged and you know the norm, they want to prolong it until I don't know Christmas, May Allah forgive us. We don't even believe in it. So I don't know why they wait for it. But they wait for years on end. And you know what, by that time 20 people have already

00:33:54 --> 00:34:02

contacted I decide to tell them how bad the other side is, yet they are lying because they just want to see broken. Allah forgive us it's happening.

00:34:03 --> 00:34:36

Same applies. A person has conceived after some years or after some time, within five minutes of having checked that a this person is now expecting the whole dunya knows and the next day they have a miscarriage and then how do you face the world? May Allah forgive us? You don't need to tell the world. You don't need to go and broadcast all this information. Not at all. Keep it to yourself, learn and understand some people The only thing they have in terms of company is the mobile phone. And with that, even though they are stuck in their homes, they are in touch with more people across the globe than those who travel the globe.

00:34:37 --> 00:34:59

Really, and they give so much of information which is embarrassing, incorrect and unnecessary. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. May He grant us wisdom. My brothers and sisters we need a lot of wisdom. We need to understand we need to think hard. Before we relay news May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deeper understanding of sallallahu wasallam albaraka Allah Mohammed

00:35:00 --> 00:35:04
