00:00:02--> 00:00:04

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:07--> 00:00:48

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam O Allah Allah Muhammad Ali Al amin Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Tabby Norman changbi Eli ahmedinejad Medina that we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala and we asked him to accept these words of praise. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala and we send complete blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household, all his companions, all those who have struggled through the years to preserve the deen and conveyed in a way that today it has got to ask Allah bless them and bless every one of us. And may He bless our family members, our offspring those to come up to the Last Day

00:00:48--> 00:00:55

May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, and May He grant us peace and contentment. Brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:00:56--> 00:01:10

Yesterday we read Surah Nisa, we today moved on to pseudotumor EDA, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept from us the recitation. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless every one of us.

00:01:11--> 00:01:59

We all know that sometimes we get happy and excited when news comes to us of something important. But sometimes the way we handle the news that came to us actually results in our destruction. Not everyone will be happy when you are happy. Not everyone will be sad when you are sad, when you have a piece of information that is specified, or that is specially for you, or that requires a lot of in depth and understanding before it is relayed to others. Then pause for a moment. And don't just mention it to anyone and everyone not everything is for publicising because sometimes we are leading peaceful lives. And then we make a slip up. We have something that happened to us so good. And we

00:01:59--> 00:02:26

relate it we have a plan in our minds, we have something that we would like to achieve, or we've just achieved and we say to someone, and perhaps that person, the devil creeps into their heart and they look at it with the wrong eye. they spoil everything for us, they block our path, they close our roads, and perhaps it will result in our failure and the snatching away of our peace. So for this, Allah subhanho wa Taala describes some of the hypocrites who had very bad habits and qualities.

00:02:28--> 00:03:00

Whenever there was news of security, or news of war, something of peace or something of fear, they would go out and announce it to everyone, you know, we've got this problem, you know, this is what has happened, you know, that's what has occurred, and so on. So what would happen is it would result in a negative impact on the Muslim mean. So Allah says that's a sign of hypocrisy. Don't just broadcast everything that comes to you. Not everything is consumable by the public in terms of advice or in terms of the news that you are giving them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, listen to verse number 83.

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

What

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

I will

00:03:10--> 00:03:13

do in Ottawa soon,

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

vivo.

00:03:22--> 00:03:52

Beautiful verse, Allah says, Those people obviously referring to the hypocrites, but we have a lesson to learn from it. Whenever there is news of any safety or security, a matter of security, a matter of fear, they are quick to publicize it to broadcast it to announce it but had they referred it to the messenger or to those in authority from amongst them, they would have understood how to deal with that piece of information. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us goodness,

00:03:53--> 00:04:30

people sometimes get excited, and out of that excitement, they spoil things for themselves. And this is why there is integration, although some of the scholars have spoken regarding the correctness of this narration but it is a powerful one where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said is that you know Allah tala how he communicates man, seek assistance to complete or to achieve what you would like to by being secretive about it. Sometimes you must be secretive when you want to achieve something. When it's achieved. Everyone can see Wow, something big is achieved. But if you are hopping and opening your mouth to everyone, they will block it they will be from amongst those who

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

hear the news, people who don't like you. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us, and May He grant us a lesson. The reason why we made mention of this, it's part of our own peace, to keep things within yourself. Don't be allowed mouth learn to keep some news and information. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala warns us and he says, if you are not going to obey our instructions, we can do away with you. But we can do away with you and replace you with others. Neither will you have peace.

00:05:00--> 00:05:12

In this world, no in the Hereafter, if you'd like peace in this world and in the hereafter obey my commands Allah is saying so listen to what Allah says Surah Nisa, verse number 133. Aisha

00:05:16--> 00:05:17

TV,

00:05:21--> 00:05:22

Allah says,

00:05:23--> 00:05:58

and if he will, he can do away with you all mankind and replace you with others. Imagine how Allah is expressing his power and the fact that he is able to exchange or change us, swap us and bring in other people who are more faithful who are believers to the, to a better degree than us May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness and for this reason, verse number 54 of the next surah which is so rotten, either Allah subhanho wa Taala warns us in an even more stern way, and he says, yeah

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

Kumar Dini

00:06:13--> 00:06:26

homie, boom Are you him Mona? Amazing, this Oh, you who believe. If you are going to turn away from your faith, if you are going to turn away from your religion,

00:06:27--> 00:07:10

Allah subhanho wa Taala will be placed you with others who will love him and whom he will love. May Allah make us from those whom he loves? And may He make us love him? And may Allah grant us peace, and May Allah grant us tranquility. And this is why hypocrisy is something we need to protect ourselves from. When we say I'm a Muslim, but like I always say, our deeds in one Valley and our statements are in another value. And when this is the case, we lose our own credentials, we lose our identity, we are false people, we lose our peace and serenity, our contentment is gone, because who we are inside is very different from who we are outside. Allah protect us. So Allah says, the signs

00:07:10--> 00:07:36

of the hypocrites verse number 142 of Surah Nisa, Allah says, in monaci, Tina Johar de Roon, Allahu Akbar, the room, the hypocrites, they seek to deceive Allah, can anyone deceive Allah? Can anyone deceive Allah? So Allah says the hypocrites seek to deceive Allah but they don't realize they themselves are actually deceived.

00:07:38--> 00:07:41

What either camo,

00:07:42--> 00:08:12

camo kamuzu Salah, one of the signs is when they get up for prayer to Allah, they get up lazy Lee they are very lazy, they don't want to get up they are just standing for the sake of it. May Allah grant us the ability to read Salah because we want to and not just because we have two very big difference between the two. There is a stage when we read it because we have to but there is a higher stage when we read it because we want to May Allah grant us that level.

00:08:14--> 00:08:52

This is why we need to enjoy the tarawih we need to enjoy Masha Allah and Allah bless us when we come with the right intention with Allah He we will feel so spiritual that no matter how long the Imam takes it's got nothing to do with us you know just I don't come with a watch not at all We don't need to know what the time is the fact that we've achieved is far more important than the clock The last time I was in Mitchell's plane we spoke about Abdullah clock if you recall when a person claims to be Abdullah but every little while even in Salah you know what happens? As the man is reading Salah is busy looking at his clock and he's doing this he shakes his head Look, what is

00:08:52--> 00:08:58

that? It happens when light May Allah protect us. May He make us truly the worshipers of Allah so Allah says

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

Allah, Allah Paulina, the hypocrites only like to show off but they don't really remember Allah they don't engage in that Vicar of Allah. They are not conscious of Allah except very little, but they like to show off May Allah protect us, and this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says after that, in Muna, Filipina double kill as feminine.

00:09:29--> 00:09:59

The hypocrites shall be upon the lowest level of the fire. Why the lowest because when it comes to fire, the hottest part of the fire is at the bottom. So this is why the lowest hypocrites are the worst of the love. Now Allah protect us and Allah says, If you really want to turn there is a way out. So verse number 146, Allah says in Molina taboo, there is an exception of those who make Toba those who repent to Allah wa slacko. And then they do good

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

They do good deeds in LA Latina taboo.

00:10:06--> 00:10:38

And those who do good deeds in La larina taboo, Allahu Allahu Akbar, the way Allah makes mention of it, those who do good deeds, those who continue in their goodness and purify themselves and so on. Allah says they are the exception. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us goodness. And this is why the last verse of that Jews, the fifth part of the Quran, the last verse, which is verse number 147, of surah, two Nyssa Do you know what Allah says? It is something that really brings about peace and comfort to the heart. Allah says, My

00:10:51--> 00:11:33

what is a lot going to achieve by punishing you, if you are going to be thankful and you are going to believe Allah will achieve nothing by punishing you? Indeed, Allah Himself is ever thankful. Imagine Allah thanks you and Allah thanks me. He appreciates. He is waiting for my Toba. He gets have I turned to him and asked him, Allah forgive me he gets so delighted Allahu Akbar. This is in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, where Allah becomes so happy when his slave turns to him, does he really need us? The answer is no. Here he's saying, What am I going to achieve by punishing you? All I'm asking you to do is to be thankful and to believe and if that's the case,

00:11:33--> 00:11:44

you will find me as well being a person or knowing or should I say sorry, being a deity, that is all knowing, and at the same time thankful? May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us.

00:11:45--> 00:12:03

So Allah subhanho wa Taala thereafter makes very, very clear. In fact, this is before that, but I delayed it to bring it to cluster it into a little topic, where the importance of following Allah and His Messenger are made mention of Yeah. levena man Oh,

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

me me.

00:12:10--> 00:12:48

Verse number 59 of Surah Nisa law says, Oh you who believe, follow Allah and follow His Messenger and follow those in authority above you. And when there is a dispute between you and those in authority above you, then return the ruling to Allah and His Messenger May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us and grant us goodness. Today we have a group of people who say follow Allah and ask for the messenger he statements are not valid. Allah Do you know that they are poor Ani Yun, they say we only follow the Quran, the rest of it is by the way, the messenger and the Hadith is all full of error and so on. Remember, Allah says here, verse number 80,

00:12:55--> 00:13:19

whosoever follows the messenger, he has indeed followed the law. Imagine as clear as that. So even if people claim that we only want to follow the Quran, that Quran will lead them to following the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Here is a statement you want to hear another one, Allah says verse number 15 of the same Surah huami Shakira, tsunami, de murder.

00:13:21--> 00:13:22

Buddha.

00:13:34--> 00:14:18

Whoever disputes the ruling of the messenger, whoever opposes the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after the guidance has come to him and he follows a path other than that of the believers. Then we do what is known in the Quran as Noah Lee Mata Allah, we returned to him what he has earned in terms of evil, which means he will pay for that. And another meaning of it, some of them have a Syrian say that means we beautify the evil for him. So he looks at it as go and we make ugly for him the good so he looks at it as evil. Basically his mind and his spirituality is knocked out totally. Why? Because he wants to argue with the messenger tunings. He wants to argue and debate and oppose

00:14:18--> 00:14:58

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If that's the case, he has not understood why the messenger was sin sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was sent so that we can follow his example we can emulate we have a brilliant example the perfect example to follow, we will never attain perfection, but we will at least be walking in that direction and we will be able to get somewhere May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us. Let us never underestimate the value of the best of creation sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was sent to us in order for us to follow and as a result by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala we will be achieving his intercession on the day of piano May Allah grant that to us. My

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

brothers and sisters something very, very simple.

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

Allah says verse number 65 similar this find out a big name. I swear by your

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

law you mean Oh, they are not considered true believers until What? What are you Hakeem Who? kaffee Masha Giada

00:15:21--> 00:15:54

until they consider your ruling over Hamad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in their disputes as the final ruling, that's when they are true believers. You have a dispute amongst yourselves we are not true believers until we say whatever Allah and His Rasulullah has said is the final decision. That's the only time we are true believers. And the well says, if we are going to surrender there is a type of surrendering that Allah requires from us. Some Elijah j doofy foresee him ha Rajim

00:15:55--> 00:16:26

lemo test Mima what type of surrendering to the Sherry app should there be? It should be such that there is no feeling of any form of loss in the heart. There should be no narrowing of the heart when it comes to adopting the ruling whether it is for you or against you. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says in verse number 1611 is omona Amano Bhima de la la cama

00:16:29--> 00:16:35

de hakama bajo de Vaca omeo fo B, are you ready to shape on?

00:16:38--> 00:16:58

Do you see those who claim to be following what has been revealed to you or Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? And what was revealed before you do you see those who claim to be believers, then they want to go to the courts or to the law besides the law of Allah in order to resolve their disputes and still claim to be believers.

00:17:00--> 00:17:07

Allahu Akbar, Allah says, the next verse was either te da da, da, da da, da.

00:17:13--> 00:17:19

Such people could explain it. to them that come to the ruling of Allah and His messenger. Do you know what happens?

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

Do

00:17:27--> 00:18:05

you see the hypocrites running away from you? They go away, they don't want but in another place in the Quran, Allah says, if they were any more through the Sharia, they would run to the Sharia. So they are basically looking at which law is it that will give us more if that's the case, your piece is snatched away. Like we always say you pay for it. That's why we are talking here about the perils of peace when you want peace. There is only one way surrender to Allah and His or soon you achieve ultimate peace. Even if it means today you might have lost something that loss is an actual fact a very great prophet because you will be earning the rewards of Allah subhanho wa Taala imagine

00:18:05--> 00:18:17

amazing May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who whenever we have a dispute, we surrender to the ruling of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and His messenger. May Allah bless us and this is why Allah says in verse number three of ada

00:18:19--> 00:18:40

anioma Kemal Tula comm Dina come to Allah. Mati warabi. Islam Medina on this day, I have perfected your faith, your religion, a command to Allah come, Dina come your DNA is completed. Its total, no addition, no subtraction.

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

And the oma command Tula comm Deena

00:18:45--> 00:19:03

Mati my gift upon you is complete and I have approved Islam as your religion to be followed. You know, the Jewish people of Madina. munawwara said at the time, this verse was revealed, they said, well, ah, he, if this verse was revealed to us as Jewish people, we would have declared this a day of celebration.

00:19:04--> 00:19:44

Imagine why because Allah is telling you, my gift to you is complete today, one of the last few verses to be revealed. And Allah says my gift to you is complete today. And the dean, I have approved it, I am happy that you follow exactly what I have revealed up to the end of time. the validity of the Sharia is right up to the last moment Allahu Akbar. Nobody can delete that or debated or even substituted. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. What a great gift we have. My brothers and sisters. Let's understand the first verse of pseudotumor EDA, Allah tells us to obey not only Allah subhanho wa Taala, but whatever we have, whatever we have promised, we need to

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

fulfill what is entrusted to us. We need to make sure we fulfill that trust and the contracts that we have engaged in fulfill them to the tee, if you're a true believer. Yeah, are you Halina man Oh,

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

Who

00:20:02--> 00:20:08

are you who believe, fulfill your contracts, fulfill your promises.

00:20:09--> 00:20:48

We suffer sometimes lack of peace because we don't fulfill our promises. So we start a trend. Nobody fulfills their promises. someone tells you, brother, I'll be here at nine o'clock half past nine, you're still waiting for them a true believer, five minutes to nine is waiting for you to ask ourselves, aren't we guilty, my brothers and sisters, myself included, we all have a little problem where we give our web and we make it cheap. If you have true believers, believe me, you give your web you never make it cheap. You consider it so valid, that that same web will result in our entry into paradise, happiness, contentment, you have a good reputation, you become an example that people

00:20:48--> 00:21:28

emulate and follow and you get a reward without you knowing of people following your example, may Allah bless us and grant us goodness. And this is why Allah says, you want to cooperate with one another. Remember, do not cooperate with one another when it comes to evil and sin. When it comes to enmity. Don't help one another. If you help one another regarding enmity and sin and evil, you will achieve the sin of every single one of you who is in cooperation. But Allah says you want to really cooperate, cooperate, in terms of goodness, and in terms of that which will achieve the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Listen, verse number two are sort of what I want, who will be the

00:21:31--> 00:21:33

one who has, if me,

00:21:40--> 00:21:50

cooperate with one another when it comes to goodness and piety and do not cooperate with one another. When it comes to evil and enmity and be conscious of Allah. This is how we achieve peace.

00:21:51--> 00:22:06

Sometimes we support a person in evil, because he's my family member. So he was wrong. When he's wrong. I just sided with him because that's my brother. How could I ever not have sided with him? So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in verse number eight of the same Surah

00:22:09--> 00:22:11

levena no qu.

00:22:13--> 00:22:43

e shuhada. I've been Keystone. For you who believe stand firm for the sake of Allah bearing witness for justice, whether in one verse Allah says whether it is against you or your families, no matter who your relatives, Allah says whether they are wealthy or poor, Allah comes first. Who comes first your father or Allah? Allah, who comes first your son, Oh Allah, Allah. Allah comes before myself also. Allahu Akbar, we know that.

00:22:44--> 00:23:21

He told Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam O Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, I love you more than everyone but myself Nabi sallallahu Sallam said no, until you love me even more than that immediately said, Okay, I love you even more than that. love more than myself. You come first, let me know I had to come Hata akuna II mean wala de, de de when Nazi Germany Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says none of you can call yourselves true believers, until I am more loved to you than your child and your parent and every single person in existence.

00:23:22--> 00:24:03

Allah blesses, may Allah grant us goodness, brothers and sisters, we want happiness. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent to us in order to confirm the message sent to Jesus May peace be upon him to confirm the message sent to Moses May peace be upon him and all the previous messages and to come with the completion of this entire deal. And this is why we have so much similarities between Islam, Christianity, Judaism and so on. And if we are to study deeply, we will notice the discrepancies as well and we will even come to realize what is right and what is wrong. May Allah bless us and may He guide humanity at large towards that which is good. So my brothers and sisters,

00:24:03--> 00:24:05

Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:24:06--> 00:24:48

regarding something that brings about a lot of comfort and peace, we have a gift. What is a gift of this oma one of the gifts is Salah, Salah is the five daily prayers, it was given as a gift to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam on the occasion of Neeraj, I'm sure you're aware of that, it was given as a gift, so do not consider it a burden. And at the same time, in order to qualify to stand in front of Allah, myself and yourselves we need to be upon a certain level of purity that is known as Voodoo, and that will do is a gift of Allah which attains and achieves a lot of inner peace and outer peace so much so that every time you wash your organs in order to fulfill that ablution you

00:24:48--> 00:24:53

would have with the droplets of water that are dropping off your sins also going according to Muhammad Sallallahu

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

imagine so why should we rush through Why should we be lazy to make Udo

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

Look at

00:25:02--> 00:25:16

every time he made, he would offer to rock out of prayer. And that is one of the reasons why his footsteps were heard in paradise Subhan Allah what peace, what comfort what contentment through so Allah says, yeah I you

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

know,

00:25:19--> 00:25:21

sala de fascino

00:25:23--> 00:25:36

in Allah and Allah describes you Do you believe when you would like to fulfill your Salah first you wash your face and you wash your hands and arms and so on, and we'll do is described in this beautiful verse number six of

00:25:37--> 00:25:59

my brothers and sisters do you know the amount of inner and outer peace that is achieved through fulfilling this ablution of prayer. So much so that even the devil stays away from us shape and stays further away from the one who is in the condition of Lulu? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to understand how high that level of purity is and may make us pure, mainly purify our hearts.

00:26:00--> 00:26:38

So Allah subhanho wa Taala then makes mention of something powerful. Today we have a problem. When I don't like someone, I don't mind what happens to him. When I hate a person. When I dislike a nation for example, I may start saying things that are untrue. You know today there is a lot of hatred that is being bounced around the members of the oma of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam Don't be caught in that way. It is a dangerous web with a venomous spider that would actually result in the infiltration into your heart. And when that happens, may Allah bless us you begin to hate people who share the same Shahada with you. So today, people don't like the Arabs because why they are like this, and

00:26:38--> 00:27:21

they don't like the Pakistanis. Why? Because they are like this and they don't like the Indians because they talk like this and so on. May Allah protect us all this is absolute nonsense. We need to learn to love one another for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says there is no virtue of any color or race over another besides with taqwa when you are conscious of Allah, Allah is the one Allahu Akbar. So what this hatred that is being bounced around is being bounced by the devil into our hearts. And this is why Allah says, even if there is a legitimate reason for you to dislike someone because they have wronged you, do not be unjust. While I

00:27:22--> 00:27:25

am Shanna no caminada

00:27:26--> 00:27:28

Dino Dino

00:27:30--> 00:27:30

De

00:27:31--> 00:27:41

La kebab. Do not leave a dislike for people lead you to be unjust with them be just for indeed it is closer to piety, verse number eight.

00:27:43--> 00:28:22

Today, what happens on the globe? One men harms another man. So you find some Muslims say go and harm that whole kind. Is that fair? Imagine if one of the Muslims happened to commit a crime in some country of the globe against someone who's not a Muslim. And the non Muslim decides anyone who's a Muslim is a target. Would it be fair, totally unfair, when you are unjust. And when you over penalize people just because you dislike them, it results in greater hatred, greater wars, greater disunity and life, and it snatches away every form of peace. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson. Let's move further.

00:28:23--> 00:28:31

Today people pick on the Sharia and what do they say? Sharia? Oh, if it was implemented here in South Africa, everybody would be having one arm?

00:28:33--> 00:28:34

Have you ever heard that?

00:28:35--> 00:29:04

If the Sharia was implemented here in Africa, everybody would be moving around without their right, wrist or arm or hand. Why? Because the minute someone says Sharia, people think of a stone and people think of cutting of the hair. Those are the only two things that come to mind. Why their minds are shallow, they know nothing. When Allah says and this is why we say we are talking of pills of peace, you will only achieve peace if you penalize the criminal accordingly. Listen carefully. When you do not penalize a criminal,

00:29:06--> 00:29:08

you will encourage and promote criminal behavior.

00:29:10--> 00:29:46

This is why any country, any country of the globe, first world, second World third world or whatever countries you want to call them, if they have a high crime rate it is because they are low supports the criminals. The law defends the criminals that's the reason that is why they have a lot of criminal behavior. So Allah says, when a punishment is being meted out against a criminal whose criminality has beyond any doubt, then remember, it should act as a deterrent for those who have not yet committed the crime. So listen to this was sorry for sorry.

00:29:50--> 00:29:52

me my cassava Naka

00:29:55--> 00:29:57

Hakeem verse number 38.

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

The thief

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

Men are female.

00:30:02--> 00:30:45

Their hands should be amputated, right hand amputated under some strict conditions. So not just anyone who stole him cut his hand. No, you know the laws or the courts of law today, they will tell you we have found this man guilty beyond reasonable doubt. So we will detain him and we will penalize him. The Sheree assets that were beyond reasonable doubt is inapplicable when it comes to meeting out the law of the Sharia and the limit of it. So you need to say beyond any doubt whatsoever, that's what we say, Look at the difference, there is a huge difference between the two. So when you have, for example, someone who has stolen you need to ask yourself that the law of Islam

00:30:45--> 00:31:26

looks into what did he steal? What is its value? Is it more than a certain amount? Where did he steal it from? Was it in a place considered secure for that particular item? and so on? Is there any form of shuba? Which means Is there any form of doubt in the fact that this might have been his in any way? And is the man saying Is he okay? Has there been two brilliant Muslims who have witnessed with their eyes? What exactly happened? If all these conditions are met, and even more conditions, then only the right arm or the right hand is amputated from the rest? Do you know how many times this happens on the globe? Very, very few, very few times. Because if a person has not been found

00:31:26--> 00:32:10

guilty upon that highest level, they may be penalized. But in a lesser way, this is the Sharia, so nobody must think it's barbaric, nothing barbaric, believe me when the Sharia is implemented, crime rate goes down, completely down, the rates go down, may Allah protect our women and our men. And this robbery is go down and everything goes down. So this is why when we look at this verse of Allah, Allah says Jessa m de la casa de one is it is meted out to them as a recompense for what they have engaged in and the stealing. And number two nacala mean Allah as a deterrent from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Beautiful. So it's a deterrent, you need to make an example of a few so that the

00:32:10--> 00:32:46

rest of those in whose hands are in whose minds criminality is perhaps tethering or it's perhaps, you know, being bounced around in their minds, they will immediately look and say, Hey, I don't want this to happen to me, not at all, not even in the least, because they know that if I do this, I'm going to be dealt with in a very harsh way. Whereas when there is a criminal who stolen millions and he gets away with it, what does he What does he do? It encourages others to say, if he got away with it, I'm sure I could we can become retail. And this is why we have so much in terms of criminal behavior. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us Oh,

00:32:47--> 00:32:54

then Allah tells us regarding food, eat that which is hella waku, Mima Rosa como la who

00:32:56--> 00:33:26

eat from that which Allah has provided you, on condition that it is Helen is that which is halaal that is provided to you by Allah, that which is pure, and after that verse, the next verse, verse number 90 of Sakuma EDA. Allah speaks to us about things that are dirty, he uses the word Regis, you know, Regis actually means dirty abomination, the handiwork of the devil. What is it? The first thing? Yeah, you had a levena Amano in

Allah says these are deti from the handiwork of the devil, so stay very far away from them if you would like to succeed. My brothers and sisters, we have a drug problem across the globe. And this drug problem knows no age, no race, it knows no lines, no barriers. anyone's child or even an adult

00:34:24--> 00:34:59

That which a lot of it makes you intoxicated one small droplet of it is also prohibited. Remember this and what happens we pay, we pay in so many different ways our piece is snatched away May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us. And this is why beautifully put verse number 100 of surah Merida, Allah says, say Mohammed Salah Salem tell them liars, hobby,

00:35:27--> 00:35:57

hobby, the evil and the good, the two of them are never equal. Even if you are amused by the amount of evil around you today how much evil is going on bad will remain bad even if the whole world is engaged in it and good will remain good. If nobody is engaging in it. Remember that this is what is being mentioned here. So even if the whole world is drinking and they're on drugs, and they think that we need we need is okay, we only believe in touch weed you need to remember

00:36:00--> 00:36:15

00:36:17--> 00:36:27

Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us and grant us goodness and this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says and we are going to end with this verse number 105. Yeah.

00:36:38--> 00:37:06

Are you who believe be worried about yourselves be worried about yourselves those who are a strain will not be to harm you if you yourselves are rightly guided. So make it your business to go and look for the guidance and to follow it and you won't be harmed.
