It's an honor and a privilege for myself.
For me to be with you here in New York, New Jersey. I get confused, but one of the two Long Island's hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen.
I thank the organizers of today's event for organizing, arranging this event will handle invited me and merci Hamza here. I was here exactly last year, a week before this weekend. Exactly. One week ago, I gave a lecture in this ministry that handle a lot I think it was in April, but we can up to this weekend. And a Lost Planet. Allah blessed me to come back here exactly one year. I don't know if the place like me who I like the place. Probably it's a bit of both. I like to Manhattan, not Manhattan, I like to Long Island al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen, Allah subhanaw taala removed all of you for coming here as well. All the brothers and sisters, it's a week day for taking out your
precious time. And sha Allah, may Allah grant us the ability to talk about something that is beneficial for myself, all of you.
And something that we change our lives with. We take the positive message with us in Chicago, Tada. The topic, we had a poster as well. And maybe you already know, maybe some of you might not know the title of today's event.
The topic is about having concern for humanity.
We have probably heard of talks on this topic,
caring for humanity. And we specifically put humanity not just Muslims, the whole of humanity, caring for humanity, having concern for humanity, helping and assisting the humanity doing something for fellow human beings. But I want to talk about this topic in a slightly different way. Maybe you might have heard of some of the things I discussed, but I want to take a slightly different approach. I want to base it on a particular hadith of Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and then talk about some really relevant points that really relate to us in our life. And sometimes when we think about concern for humanity, we only look at certain aspects and certain other aspects are not considered or they are overlooked or they are forgotten sometimes.
The Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a hadith in Sahih Muslim, a very famous Hadith. You may probably haven't heard of this hadith. It's an authenticated Hadith because it's in Sahih, Muslim, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says it's a long Hadith, but these are three four sentences of the Hadith manifest and meaning korova 10 min corabi Dunia nephrosis Allahu anhu corbetta min, Coco Ravi yo Pia. That's the first part, whoever removes a just alleviates or removes a difficulty or a hardship
manifests and movement in from a believer. Now there are some Hadith that have the word or the term mean or Muslim in them. However, this is not restricted to just believe and I'm not just saying this just because we want to make anyone happy that we only care for Muslims and not for the whole of humanity. If it's in our Deen, then of course we say it and if it's not that we don't need to change our Deen to make anyone happy. But if you look at this Hadith, it's meant the other Hadith the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam like in the Muslim Ummah, he said, humanity a hyperbole. nursey love for humanity, for the people for mankind. motto humble enough sick and there's numerous
texts that talk about general human beings. why some of these habits specifically only talk about believers where he mentioned men or Muslim is
Because he was addressing a community that was only a community of believers, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was living in Al Madina, munawwara and here all the believing men and women Sahaba and Sahaba. And they were amongst themselves and he is addressing and like it, he's talking to them, okay, the good brothers here, if one of you like if I'm just sitting with three, four of you, and I'm saying okay, you three for whoever helps you Brother, you know. So, this is why in that context, he mentioned a believer, but there are certain other studies that talk about general mankind the whole of humanity. So this hadith says manifester and meaning Kuru button when
corabi dunia whoever removes a hardship a difficulty, from a believer from a fellow human being a hardship of this dunya of this world. Then the what's the result of this? Now first of all, wha hoo hoo Kuru bottom in corabi yo milyon Allah subhanho wa Taala will remove a hardship from the hardships of
the next slide.
There is another Hadith which is similar to this in that Hadith he said man for Raja instead of manifesta he said man for Raja and Muslim in their use the word Muslim man for Raja and Muslim in Kuru Berta Mina dunia if anyone removed say meaning hardship difficulty from a fellow human being from a believer and there's similar types of Hadith as well and the second part of this hadith of Sahih Muslim the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that man Yes sir Allah, Masha. Whoever makes it easy you heard in the surah alumna Shara Surah trinchera in grocery you saw in grocery you saw this hadith says man Yes sir. Allah Marcel yes sir from use whoever makes easy
on someone who has also someone who has hardship difficulty. Yes sir. Allahu Allahu dunya well, Hara, Allah will make things easy for that person in this world and the next one, and there's no numerous other hobbies what what are these headings trying to say? these headings are trying to say that Oh, beavers Allah's Messenger, sallallahu alayhi salam speaking to me, to you to everybody, men, women, all the variables that look as a human being as a Muslim. We have a responsibility not just to be good Muslims ourselves. Islam is not just about practicing Deen in the masjid Islam is not just about fasting or praying or just performing hajj. That's why in another Hadith again, a
similar type of Hadith the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, Well Muslim or Muslim, a Muslim is a believer Muslim law will remove the Lima who he doesn't oppress him, whether you say Lima who he doesn't abandon him. So the responsibility of the believer is not just praying, fasting and Hajj, etc. And it's not just that we shouldn't harm I mean, that's definite that's given a believer who harm someone else that's like, you know, this Heidi's gonna talk about human human being removed. So a believer doesn't harm. That's, of course that's given if you're a believer, you don't harm anybody. We don't harm anybody, verbally, physically with our actions with our tongue,
with our mouth, with our with our neighbors, or anybody in any way, shape, shape, or form, harming someone verbally, physically, emotionally, psychologically, these are all haram acts in Islam, mentally, emotionally as well. And this comes especially first family I talked about family last year I remember the talk was all about family relationships, that even at home emotional psychological harm and abuse is sometimes worse than physical and verbal abuse. So that's given a Muslim never does that. But this has the the same that love the Limbu, a believer doesn't oppress and make room. But the responsibility of the believer doesn't stop there. Rather, whether you sell
the movie, he doesn't abandon, or she doesn't abandon another believer. So it's not just I'm not harming you, but I'm not just helping you, like if you're traveling on the middle of long highway here, or the roads you have in Long Island. And if you go and
intentionally go and like punch somebody or hit somebody that's been this has is is saying that of course you're not going to do that. But if you see somebody that someone's broken down, and there's been cases you might see some YouTube videos that there's somebody who's got an accident, somebody just had an accident analyzes 20 causes passing by and nobody even tells it, like raises an eyelid dying, who cares? Like we're too busy making, you know, whatever money or whatever, people are too busy. There's those there's videos like that in some places where people just like, it's like that person is animal. I'm a human being we think that person is like a species someone we don't even
think about stopping this is what this is saying you don't abandon somebody. Our responsibility is not just to not harm them but it's also not to abandon them. It's a very important responsibility. And this hadith of Muslim you remove if we remove any difficulty hardship we all want hardships and difficulty of your will pay on a being removed from us if we want that. We have to remove hardship and difficulty of this dunya and the second part of the habit, man, yes sir. Allah mercy. Anyone who makes things easy, what does that mean?
Makes there's so many examples of this making something easy. Like for example, somebody owes you a debt.
Somebody owes you this is all all of this when we talk about concern for humanity, we might have concern for human humanity and rightly so for Syrians, for Palestinians, for whatever whatever all the different parts of the world and everybody should have solidarity and concern humanitarian aid handled in love, very, very important part of our Deen. But sometimes we don't have this the same type of humanitarian kind of consideration for our own spouses or husbands or wives or children. like someone's wife is asking for money. It's okay No, no, you don't need money. You don't give your wife and anybody you want to give the whole world money. Charity begins Where? At home. That's why
some men What have you done messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that you know the food that you put in your wife's mouth in your spouse's mouth, the money you spent that's the greatest form of charity. The greatest form charity begins at home this is from the Quran and Sunnah. So this concern should be for everybody for our neighbors for brothers and sisters. This man Yes sir Allah mercy means that if someone for example, you remove a hardship, somebody owes you money, you're doing business with somebody, that person owes you a debt. And that person is not able to pay you the debt then
by no legally what I mean legally islamically you have an absolute right there won't be nothing wrong if you don't do this. It's completely permissible. You demand your rights. This is my rights. You owe me money you give it to me right now. Nothing wrong. There's nothing mcru impermissible or haram or bad or blameworthy in it at all. But the higher moral ground if it's possible, maybe it's not always possible, but sometimes looking at someone's real situation. If someone is in difficulty, someone's in hardship, and you think you know what, for the sake of Allah, imagine if I'm a normal player man overseas like by No, you haven't played this Allah you're going in Hellfire, and it will
last starts to take us as well takes us by law. That's why the heading says ask Allah for fatherland not idle. Don't ask Allah for either. Ask for further if Allah starts dealing us. If Allah deals with us with justice, then we are all doomed. Even the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said when the companions asked, he said, Who am Rasulullah? He said yes, in homogeneity mahabharatha Mini so we ask Allah for further This is the door we should always make Ola we want your grace. We don't want you to deal with this justly because Manu Pittman, Toshiba Manu Fisher Oliva the one if love comes to taking real accounts like every single gory detail of what we did and we didn't do then
most of us never protect us, us you know we'll be punished. So we ask Allah for mercy and Rama Allahumma Milner bureaucratic will not deal with us with your ama with your mercy. So, this if someone comes someone you find in real difficulty and hardship and you think for the sake of a law, out of genuine love and concern for last panel to Allah you find in your heart, that this person is really struggling this and you make it easy on the marcille Yes, sir.
Yes, sir of a hula hoop it dunia when Allah will make things easy in this world and the next world and there are so many examples. I've met people who've actually mentioned real life examples where they saw the miracles in their life, that for the sake of Allah, they did something like this and suddenly Allah blessed them with so much Baraka in some other way. I might lose out some right now or something's happening but for the sake of Allah, like I'm not saying all the time, sometimes people might take advantage as well with this, so you know, yeah, of course. There might just keep on telling you this. How do you win? Yes sir. Mr. Steadman? Yes, sir Allah mercy. So of course
within reason, and this man Yes, sir Allah Mr. Sir, there's a similar verse in the Quran like this. In the Quran, Allah says we're incarnate and this is specifically talking about deaths. Why in Canada who also wrote in Coronavirus to either my surah when someone owes you a debt, someone took a loan from you, someone owes you a debt. Allah says we're in Ghana, who are Sora from the word Eros. When if that person is genuinely in a hardship, if that person is genuinely in a hardship, then ferner wirathu Isla Mesa mesa is from the word use. Then give him a bit of respite until he comes a time comes that it's easy for him to pay and allow it forgive your sins. There's Hadees where the
messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam these are these are in Buhari and elsewhere. there's a there's a Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi salam mentioned that there was a person before you, in the owner before you that he will be brought on Yom will kiama and Allah subhanho wa Taala will ask the angels in front of the people and Allah knows best Of course he knows about his heart but is just to show the people that look at his deeds what has he got? They said last Allah tala sama whereas SOHCAHTOA hygiene is none
No good is he has no good deeds. But the only thing one thing Allah says there's no good deeds, he has no good deeds in his tasket in his in his calculation in his book of deeds, no good deeds. But there's only one thing we've seen, he was a businessman, he had so many people that he employed, he had told all his work as an employee that you know what when you go to do business or when you buy or when you sell, just be very very gentle with people speak gently. If someone's in real hardship difficulty, just make it easy for them. Be soft, be lenient, don't be aggressive. Allah said because of this forgiven.
Now this This doesn't mean that we don't have to praise Allah etc. And we just do this and we are nice businessmen and we get forgiven there's so many integrations like this, there's another ID, where like, someone gave animal something and Allah forgive that person. There's numerous Hadith. So either we need to understand something about this. The scholars of course of the Quran and Sunnah mufa siru has detune they explained all of this. And they say that these examples are not the noon these are like outside the rule one is the law one is outside the law. The normal law of law is you praise Allah, you record Hajj, Muhammad, Allah, Masha, Allah character, these are the laws of Islam.
And this we would have to act upon it. But sometimes someone can just forgive you, which is beyond the law. But the law that doesn't become the law doesn't mean that okay, we just take that one heavy, and I'll just do this and I don't have to do any further or any more Muslim anymore. So anyway, this is the meaning of Manya sarada Marcel.
Whoever makes it easy on the people allow it make it easy for this person in dunya, an aha. And then the Hadees carries on to say, well, la houfy only loved nocturnal Abdu, fi only a fee of law remains in the help and assistance of his slave. As long as the slave remains in the help and assistance of his fellow brother or sister.
McAfee Hagerty, he can Allahu fi Hagerty when someone remains in fulfilling the need of his brother Allah remains Allah fulfills his needs and this is what asked the people some people are amazing Mashallah amazing. I'm sure you have some new community, they have this. This amazing passion of hijama edma is one of the greatest greatest macom seriously some of this problem of said, being hard. You must have heard of the word hardened caveman Arabic term? Yes, it's an Arabic word is also used in Urdu and some of the subcontinent languages. Hey, Dima is from howdy Maya doumbia. Hardin being a Harding is the highest mapa. Like it's even greater than being a shareholder scholar and are
in many scholars have said this. I'm not saying this. This is a position that you know, what's what some scholars said? This is the position that nobody will there'll be no politics in that
position, every other position, there's politics, this is a position nobody will wait, like will fight with you that give me that position. No, nobody's going to do that. This is a position or you can remain always in it. Nobody's going to fire you from that position. This is the greatest position, position of sigma the greatest knock on the greatest status, and you reap rewards, do heidemann for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and you see this in every community, I traveled a lot and Subhanallah some of those communities. You see those people who are doing figma you just see absolute amazing amazingness about them. These are the true Olia of Allah subhanaw taala there are
people just the lives are based on edma that's it serving helping assisting anyway you have you may have some people in your community you know who you can count on you any problem you know which brother to call or which sister to call or who's going to be there. And these are amazing people a lot of really gives them good in to them in this life as well. The reason why is Allah subhanho wa Taala
and this is actually a sign of a man you know some of the scholarship based on the Hadith Allah you know hydrocone Hector you hit by the female you have been enough say you can't be a complete believer until you don't like for your fellow Muslim brother or sister or you like for yourself. So if you don't like that, then this shows that the man is not complete, having concern in the heart for for humanity for other people. This is a sign of female. So this this the reason for this is why Allah blesses these kind of people so much and what's the reason what's what's so good about this?
removing hardship difficulty Allah rewards Allah gives so much goodness and Baraka in this life in the next live, there's so much reward. Why Why is there so much reward behind this? The reward is, everyone knows anyway, that is good. This is this is the difference. You see some of the non Muslims do this as well. Right? This is something that everyone does. It's not restricted to any faith or community or religion, charity work. Everybody likes charity work, everyone, anyone does charity. Everyone likes charity. Every country likes charity. Everyone, every religion is talking about charity. And remember when I'm talking about humanitarian concern, it's not just money. It charity
is not just sadaqa you could whoever removes hardship verbally
With your hands, someone needs to see somebody who's taking like some luggage or someone is taking some household furniture somewhere and you give them a hand. That's also a form of charity. Charity is not just financially that's just one form of charity, helping assisting with with sometimes with words, sometimes somebody is in distress, someone's in distress, and they just need some words of comfort.
So panela You don't know how much reward you've gained. There is a sister, and she's really, really down. She's so stressed, she's depressed, she's in a really bad state. And there's another sister that just isn't listening here as well. And she just the only reason is for the sake of Allah that I just want to give 1015 minutes to my sister. Make her feel good. Give her good sound advice. But remember, good sound advice, not bad advice. Don't say you know what, you have money, just leave him. Just Pack your bags and come to my house. That's not good sound advice. This headman, whoever turns their spouse against their spouse This is warnings of punishment. Some people they don't know
how to give good advice. You have to give sound advice. Good sound advice. You don't just suddenly tell people to turn turn them against their family members. But genuinely for the sake of online, you help verbally This is removing a hardship verbally. It could be verbally it could be physically it could be in different forms. It could be financially but it's not restricted to finance otherwise, only the people with money get reward.
You know, the Sahaba actually asked this there's a hadith in Sahih al Bukhari, the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu. They said to the messenger sallallahu Sallam said O Messenger of Allah, they have a duty to reveal who you are, the rich people have taken all the do to means rich people who do to reward the habit loop due to the blue, the people have money, they've taken away all the rewards. Your Rasul Allah said, Why? He said, You saw new suddenly, you saw you saw Luna Come on Sunday. So manakamana soon, they pray, we pray, they fast, really fast. Like they do the same. We do the same. But they have the advantage yet also the spoon, the fatherly Omari him, but they have extra money
they can give in charity, in the path of Allah, we don't have the money. So fasting will equal prayer we equal every other good deed will equal but we don't have money they can donate, given charity. So that's not fair. Oh, messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. So the messenger sallallahu sallam, he said, Nothing to worry about.
Charity is not restricted to just giving financial charity. It's good. It's important is a very important part of charity. But it's not restricted to that. He said to them, then in ob colitis we had in South Africa wakulla lelit, in South Africa wakulla. me that in South Africa. Well, Imran will now roofie sadhaka, when a unary, Moon curry sada saying subhana wa started saying Alhamdulillah active charity, saying La ilaha illAllah, active charity, a maroon Wilma, aloof, enjoying the good use of some brother, awesome sister, you said some two words of good positive message. But remember in condition is with a good intention with a class with sincerity for the sake
of Allah not thinking yourself to be bigger and better than that person. If I'm giving you a lecture here, and I'm thinking I'm better than you, then this lecture is of no reward. Rather, it's simple for me. So with a good intention, thinking that I'm just a hobby, and this person is better than me. But just I've just seen this one thing that's bad in this person is better than me in 99 other things, so I just want to just give him a positive message. And maybe he might do two hours for me. And because of it, though, I'll get accepted. And I'll be forgiven. With that intention in joining the good and forbidding the evil, there are rules about enjoying the good and forbidding the evil.
The problem is that a lot of people don't learn the rules of that are a lot of people don't learn the rules of enjoying the good and forbidding the evil. And that's why we have chaos and animosity, animosity and lots of problems in Britain that occur in our communities, we have to learn the trick of dialogue. We should have a course in England A few years ago, it delivered a whole day course. The fifth of July. I was talking to the brothers here. I don't see here in an America generally because even like Chicago and other places that are B but I don't see this the custom will all this culture of having courses not maybe that much you might have it is probably but in England, UK, we
have so many courses like detailed courses. Just last month, I delivered a course on raising righteous children. We started 9:30am we finished at 7pm with lunch break and tea break. And it was registration we had 150 brothers and sisters who came for the whole day. Many were husbands and wives. And also there's a payment for this as well. Right? They didn't organize it but the organization who organized it, there's a registration every course there's like each person has to pay 20 pounds, so it's like $30 or $40 or whatever.
full day cause there's so many across the country different different causes the lack of Zakat, the fear of marriage, just the marriage, cause I've taught it like good 1617 times in the last 10 years, we have lots of different different topics and causes inheritance laws, card laws,
you know, different topics. So we had a course called dharma.
Thou, because Islam is about learning, we have to learn a religion we need to take time on the hour is not just like I just feel like doing that when I'm just doing that. Or there's so many etiquettes and laws and rules of situations of dolla dolla to non Muslims, what are the laws rules there? When should you do that when you shouldn't do the hour when someone's in the middle of a scene, should you call that person and say stop drinking alcohol right now? You know, there are rules this etiquettes based on many, many verses of the Quran and Sunnah, and the Syrah of the Sahaba and the seer of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So anyway, I was saying something else I was
saying that yes, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he, when he when they asked these people companions for the Allahu anhu that the people with money, they've taken all the rewards because they have extra money. What did he say? in joining the goodest sadaqa that's me. hasakah soccer, soccer, soccer, Omron Bill Maher roofie, soccer, enjoying the goodness of the world. Now, you know, Neil moon, curry soccer, forbidding the evil is an act of charity. And not just that, what do you say after that you may have heard of this word we do the heavy rooms or the cartoon, even intimate sexual relations with your spouse is
even in your bedroom, this charity.
In other words, this is the heartbeat of Sahih al Bukhari. I'm not making this up. Because Islam doesn't differentiate between Masjid and the bedroom. This is the point. Islam says you're a Muslim. Once you're home, you're a Muslim in the first row here, or you're a Muslim, if you're a taxi driver, or you're in the workplace, everywhere, you're a Muslim. So even intimate relations, if you do it with the right intention, if your intention is if your intention is you know, actually, I wrote about this once that why did the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam call this sadaqa? We don't have too many children here. So I could maybe mentioned this, but I'll be careful in the words
I use. Why does the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned this Asada?
Because what is charity? charity is about?
What is it about? It's about giving, right? charity is about giving. So he Why did he mention this other car is a very, really salient point here, the whole of marital relationship, and I don't want to make this into a marriage talk. But the whole of marital relationship is and should be all about giving it should all be about the other person. If we want to save ourselves from marriage problems, the husband has to go into a marriage and think it's all about you, yourself, you are not me myself, I and the wife should think it's all about you, yourself, you and not me, myself, I my whole marital relationship as a wife, she should think is all to help, assist serve and be there for the sake of
Allah subhanaw taala for my husband, and I will enter general through this type of this type of serving, this is also type caring for humanity, concern for humanity, your spouse is the first person and the husband should think the same as well. The whole reason I am in this marriage is not for myself. It's not for my needs. It's not for my husband, my hope and my rights. It's all for her, to the wife, to the point that not just the whole marriage, even the most intimate part of marriage, which is intimacy is about that.
You can understand what I'm trying to say that when you're in intimate relationship, I know loads of cases, I deal with many, many marriage problems, where this becomes a problem. I know many, many cases where marriages have ended because of problems in the bedroom department. Many, many problems many people. So even in this matter, when the husband or wife are involved in the intimacy, both of them need to think that this is not for my gratification. I'm not here just to fulfill my needs, that will happen. But I am here to fulfill the needs of my spouse, even at this moment. That's why that's called sadaqa. Just imagine, everything is a duck. So I was saying that initially, that
concern for humanity is not just restricted to financially helping some it's verbally it's physically and then I mentioned the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that
everything is a sadhaka even verbally caring for humanity, concern for humanity. It's not restricted to carrying financially it's verbally physically or financially in any way, shape, or form. And I mentioned those two heads about the messenger sallallahu Sallam talked about man Yes sir mercy and that example, I gave
The person who's forgiven now I was saying that what's the reason why is this so much reward so much forgiveness for someone who helps someone who cares for others and someone who is has concern in his own heart for another person, whoever alleviates the distress hardship for other people in any way, shape or form, physically, verbally, you know, emotionally anyway, you're there for somebody. Reason being is that Allah subhanho wa Taala has love for his creation, because we are all the creation of Allah subhanaw taala we are all mulu What does not mean? The creation of Allah is Allah call it one of the names of lawyers alcoholic, if I will you meet Will you if we made something wouldn't we have
love for you. So when you make even something small, I've made this like this. So you know, dear to my heart, I've made this item, Allah subhanaw taala created all of us and all of humanity and even animals. And therefore Allah has love and concern for his creation. And in order to love ally in order for us to have love of Allah we have love for his creation, not just love for his creation but have mercy on his creation have consideration for his creation and have this this concern in the heart for his creation. When someone loves somebody actually having concern for the humanity is a sign that that person has love for Allah because we love everything and anything associated with the
person you're loving. If you have a good example husband, wife, you know if you're in love with your wife, then you will love everything you love everything even our car you love, love one you'll do anything. You know even the mother in law you'll have loved one the sister you want everybody in the family you love when you should do anyway but not have no problems. But you'll have love if you have genuine love
you love anything associated to the beloved. Have you had to merge noon and later everybody has everyone knows example merge noon was mentioned when that wasn't his name was no news. A crazy man in love. His name was Mr. Heiss and his beloved was Layla amuru Allah de de la la These are his clients of poetry amuru Allah dare dare Laila. kabhi loser je de whether je de la Maha Dr. Chavez, Nepal de la kinfolk boom and second era. He used to this is Laila his house. He used to do throw off like and go round around Lila's house come to Long Island Layla is in Long Island. Which area of Long Island What's this area called? stream Valley Stream sorry, Valley Stream, you know, somewhere
some, some part of some apartment near some house near Valley Stream. He soon as he is just walking in the streets, he doesn't know what's going on. And he's kissing this stone and kissing that stone. He says a Maru Allah Dr. Ed rinella I go around around the house of Layla I kissed this stone and I kissed that stone. Well now I hoped would do a shadow of Nickleby it's not the love of the walls that's overtaking my heart. I don't love the brick or the wall. Yes, like not brick you guys have woodsy Yeah, we in England we have bricks. Your house is the old built of woods Mashallah we don't have no wooden houses in England I don't if you've been England there's no such a concept of wooden
houses. But they look beautiful. They really good trying to you know take on inputs and start a business importing wooden houses. Take them from here. So we have with Dr. Tricia Nickleby. It's not that I have love for the wolves. While I can hug boom and seconded Diarra but I have loved for who? The one who lives inside the walls of the house.
He was so in love with the Laila that even her house and the bricks and the walls are anything connected or associated with her. He was in love with. If we have true love for Allah subhanho wa Taala that anything and everything reconnected to Allah.
The humanity at large is the creation of Allah. Whoever has left for the makuu of Allah is a sign that he has loved Lost Planet Allah. Whoever doesn't love the creation of Allah means that he is. He is not truthful in his claim or her claim of having love for Allah subhanho wa Taala the sign that someone has loved because look, we can't see a Lost Planet Allah This is another topic. Allah is really my sous he is not his beyond our five senses can't touch you know, the five senses taste, touch, smell, hear and see Allah is ready to Massoud. There are a lot of things which are they the muscles that we believe in them? This is actually the topic is a very detailed topic, but we believe
in like, has anybody seen what color hunger looks like?
You don't know. But you see the effects. I'd give it full color as well the other day on atheism but we don't we don't see certain things but we know because the effects are so so clear. Do you deny that hunger exists just because you don't know that looks green with purple spots. I've seen hunger it's brilliant purple spots.
But we believe in it because the effects are so great the effects of a loss of Hello data everything every single one of you hear me
We are all signs of Allah Subhana Allah. So Allah is really my sous. So how do we love Allah loving the creation of Allah?
And there's another heavy. This is not absolutely sorry, to the extreme level of authentication but it's sound enough. And hello Correa Lula Habu Hello Illa HeMan Oksana Isla de, the creation is the family of Allah belongs to Allah, Allah created it. The whole of creation. Therefore the most beloved to Allah is the one who is good to his creation. If you are good to my son, I'll have love for you, you look after my son, my daughter, and you are good to my family, then I will have love for you. If you are this is this is the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is the reason why Allah loves a slave who is good to his other slaves. Allah loves the person who has concerned in
his heart and has Rama and mercy this and this can only come. We all want to be good to fellow human beings and have concern for humanity. But this can only happen if we inculcate we put in our hearts we inculcate in our hearts, this realm of you know, this deep concern, like our hearts should melt. We need to create that sometimes not possible. For some people, it's more difficult. And for some people, it's easy or relatively Look, a lot of things, many of these things. There's a test for everybody in life. Okay, this is a side topic.
Look, anger is haram. Yes. undue anger. There are certain terms that might be permissible, but in Islam, we know being angry. You shouldn't be angry. But somebody is born angry, extremely angry. That doesn't mean as an excuse like I punch someone is haram brother. Well, Allah created news anchor No. Well, it's not fair. He's created like a cold as a cucumber, where we say that cool as a cucumber. And if you have that phrase, this guy, why is it's not fair. I love creating so much anger, but then the rules for me and him are the same. Yes, the rules are saying you have a greater majority agree to test. But that's your test in this aspect. But in another aspect, he might have a
greater test, everybody is tested in different aspects of life, he might have a different problem, like, extreme desire sexually. And for him to stay away from Xena related since is very difficult to learn, you might not have that problem, somebody. This is why you know, some people who come with this excuse that I am involved in illicit sexual acts like homosexuality. And just to be clear, we don't hate anybody. Islam doesn't agree with homophobia, homophobia, etc. And we don't hate, of course, but it's clear Christianity, Islam and Judaism clearly says these things are not permissible. Now somebody a lot of young people, I've talked to so many of them, they come and say,
Look, I was born. That's your test. And if you were born by that, it's just like somebody says, I was born with a desire to kill someone. Does that mean you can kill somebody? No, you were born with anger. You were born with bad character, live from people have different tests, emotional Azadi. In comedy, he says people have two ways to get good luck and character. Some people are born with good character. Some people are born, they just have to do 5% maybe in order to be really nice people or good person. Other people are born with bad character. They are born so now they have to strive and struggle they can't have an excuse that you know what he's born with good character and I'm bad. I'm
born in bad character. That's your test. That's your majorda everybody has a different area of the Islamic rulings that their struggle is in. So this is something as well some people are born with, you know, some people are naturally have very harsh hot, like me, you know, no concern in the heart just very, very harsh. But then we have to create this somebody from the Sahaba radi Allahu anhu, one companion, he came to the messenger sallallahu alayhi Salaam. He said, O Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi salam, I have a very, very harsh heart, very hard heart like, I don't have gentleness in me. He said in Central Australia theme. Keep on always putting your head hand on the
head of who your team often children, Allah will create gentleness in your heart. This is one way find orphans go and see orphans. So we have to create this. The only way we can have concern and concern for humanity is we create in ourselves in our hearts rahama mercy, Rama mercy, this, this mercy in our heart for the creation of a loss of love for creation.
Know the love for the mclucas Allah Rama for the loop of Allah. This This is why the so many texts of the Quran and Sunnah that talk about having run because this is this is like introduction in order to want to care for humanity and do hidimba The first step is create this drama in the heart. This
Consider this mercy in the heart. Once we create the mercy then automatically it will lead us to
it will lead us toward having concern and doing cinema.
The hadith of tsunami de wood
or raha moon your hammer rock maruta Baraka Allah, or hammelmann fell out your ham comment with sama. This is what we call a diesel mussels and Villa Walia I'm sure you've probably heard of that. That had to do cell cell bill earlier probably students and scholars maybe know about this. But we have this tradition since the time the Sahaba and tervuren or the worldwide who have heard the tune of scholars that when they study howdy they there's something called muscles and muscles a lot in Arabic modern day Arabic muscle salata called series, you know drama series, but in the real word, muscle cells, something continued. So what the, what the Mahajan used to do is that they used to
relate every howdy with something continuous. So for example, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said something to the Sahaba and he was doing something he put his hand on his head. So the companion when he related the Hadith to his students, he said the same Hadith and he put his hand on the head, and then the next person to his students, he said the same Heidi put his hand on the head is the next one next one all the way to today we have people who have a chain was almost had equal muscles will be worth earlier. Dr. Ross, the muscles are happy with putting the hand on the head. We have had equal muscles will be worth earlier Alinea, the messenger sallallahu wasallam said the
Hadees that none of you can be a complete believer until you don't believe on color. And then he said amen to builder humility he wakatobi vasilyeva luminara padri Hideyoshi era and he was doing this so now the Sahabi when he said to students come on I'm teaching you ID I heard the messenger sallallahu Sallam says And then he said this I'm going to be a human to go toe to toe so everybody should today one of my chefs gave us this he did this he said I'm going to build it and he gave the permission it's a continuation of the chain There are numerous muscles a lot some change like every single person in the chain is by the name Mohammed has little muscle cell bill Mohammadi Mohammed
Salah, Lucha Islam so happy Mohammed Mohammed everybody has equal muscle cell bill goofy they all lived in Kufa McKean, Bill midodrine bill Hijazi in vishwamitra ob Callie he, in his book The messenger sallallahu Sallam said tomorrow the Allahu Allahu Jamar in new ebook Omar I love you Taku gurukula Salawat say after every Salah Allahumma Piniella, the crypto crypto house and when he said to his student of law he said I love you in your head Bukola in a book say this everyone is telling the student will lie in your a book called gurukula Salawat there's about over 212 types of muscle Salah there's books written on this topic there's a whole book published in Arabic and a minor Hello
Sally surfing hardeeville muscle Salah all of them. You have people today like have like 30 of them 40 of them 50 of them some one of my chefs he has like good many, many he gave many to us as well. There's one way the messengers of Allah horison reciting surah to stuff the whole sort of stuff and then he said the Hadith
so one of these muscles a lot is called had equal muscle cell bill a Walia which means that the teacher has taught this hadn't as the first Hadith ever. A Walia the first Howdy. So before teaching Sahih al Bukhari is a Muslim, any Hadith book that teacher will say the first Hadith I'm teaching is this heavy and this is famous This is throughout the world, right? This is not just one part of the world. It's not just a subcontinent thing or you know, North African thing. This is all these things are unanimous when I normally talk I don't talk about any something which is restricted to a particular part of the world. General things do go in parables study, you know, you go in Syria,
Jordan, Yemen, Egypt, North Africa, Tunisia, Morocco, subcontinent, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, all of these you ask any student, any chef what his little muscles are beloved here, this is a common known thing, which is this what is that Howdy. I've received this from like, numerous because this heavy muscle cell from at least six seven different shoe from different parts of the world. What is this Hadith, the messenger so this is like the first Hadith that is taught to the student Oh student unit study Hadith. This is the first study the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't say the teach this hadith first. So just to clarify, he didn't say this. But it just happened that one of
the Sahabi companion taught his students this hadith first. So then his students thought like my teacher shahabi when he taught me he This is the first ad that he told me so why should I not teach my student this as the first ad? And the next one said okay, he heard it from his chair, as the first had eaten in front of messages on a lower return first, so why should I not do that? And he continued, continued all the way until today, and that's why it's meant to teach today. They have a continuous chain going back to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what is the howdy? Aurora Hey, Moon yamamura nutivaara colletta Allah, your hammelmann fell out of the air henkelman v sama.
Those who have mercy those who showed compassion, those who show compassion, your hand movement, man with a BA localizada the old merciful man will have compassion on them. And then the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Your hammelmann fell out of your hand, Coleman is sama, have mercy and compassion on the people of the earth. The one in the heavens, Allah subhanho wa Taala will have compassion and mercy on you. This is like the first heavy and that's why the whole Quran teaches compassion and mercy Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen al moonta No, our Rahmani Raheem. Allah has attributes taking punishment the Avenger The Punisher. Governor, Shadi de
la Cobb, the Quran says shadier calm but Alhamdulillah harrowby alameen wa surely the man or Rahim Hadid says worse the art
world economy with Arabic but my compassion My Mercy has overcome my other subaqua the other be our main attribute by default is compassion. He is compassionate, merciful, everyday. Rahman or Rahim Rahman over him, because that is his main compassionate, being compassionate and merciful is his main attribute. So we need to bring that into our hearts, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well. Well, Marcel Naka in the rock method will Allah mean he also said in another Hadith innama Anna Rama tune modot indeed, Mr. Rama Murthy given to you as a gift. He's saying I am a mercy given to you as a gift.
You know, when someone gives a gift, you have the giver of the gift and you have the recipient of the gift and you have an item of a gift. He is saying I am a gift gifted to you. Allah is the giver of the gift. We are the recipients of the gift, and who is the gift, the Rama of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is full of Rama and mercy. So this is something that we really need to bring in our in our hearts, we can only care and have genuine concern for humanity. If we bring this you know this concern this armor this compassion, like if you see somebody struggling, it's difficult. There are of course, exceptions. But it's difficult for me as a good human being as a
good Muslim to just walk past and not even ask.
Do you need some help? Like you traveling in the middle of the road? And is someone Muslim or non Muslim? Someone's just they're struggling something nowadays, you know, okay, they just come out and they put the car on the side, on the cell phone, the color, whatever, whatever. So people are taken care of. But I'm saying genuine situation somebody is struggling someone at the airport, you're traveling. So as a believing man, a woman if we have this genuine concern, then we will not be able to move away unless we are able to unless we ask that person. Is everything. Okay? Do you need some help? This is a sign of a sign of a believer, someone with luggage struggling an elderly person
struggling. The young person, a good young Muslim, believing a man or a woman is someone who will say no, give me your bags. I'll give it to me. I'll help you. I'll assist you. This is part and parcel of our teachings of Deen and Islam. Really important some communities these things are overlooked. I'm sure it's not here. But in UK we find this that sometimes people just don't have concern. Neighbors will law Hello You mean we're lucky that humans are lucky do you mean by Allah you're not a believer in order to believe in or a believer who messenger of Allah.
The one whose neighbor is hungry. Number three, Shiva and wha hoo hoo.
The one who spends the night full stomach and his neighbor is hungry, asking neighbors, this humanitarian concern is not about it's not just about sorry, not just about it's very important. It's not just about the world's distressed and all these people in poverty, poverty stricken lands. It's about that and we have so many talks about the lonely a lonely world of you and us. We give a lot of charity and give to all the different places in different parts of the world and will continue to give you the ability to give more and more there's never enough but never forget genuine situations of help and assistance. People working with you.
People working with you.
There's another Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said in a hadith of Al Bukhari, that there was a person
in the times before you there was a person in the times before you that what happened with him was
Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive him. Reason being is
when he does some hand It
was some hand either shut off
With some honey Tada. Allah loves this quality attribute of some are half some, which is gentleness, riff in aloha Rafi. When you have rifka with armor equally Allah is gentle he loves gentleness in everything.
Nothing is has gentleness except it is adorned
and nothing has harshness except it is made ugly. If riff is found in something Illa Shanna who and it's not in found in something it doesn't mean you harm or rift you from will hire akula de Hadid. Whoever is deprived from gentleness is deprived from all good. Allah loves this quality. This was the quality of our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even with his enemies, to the Mirage Murthy mean Allah He didn't Tella Houma La Quinta Patanjali they're called Glencoe bloomin Holic. It was because of his gentleness that these people will pull towards Islam. So this gentleness, Allah this hadith of Bokhari says that there was a person before you, Allah forgive him, all his sins were
forgiven. Why? Some hand either some hand English Tara, some hand either Qatada that this person when you used to buy, he used to be very, very, very gentle, very compassionate, very gentle, very cordial, very courteous in the way he used to buy. When he buys he's not an aggressive business man. He's a gentle businessman. He's not an aggressive person when he's buying when he buys something, he asks the person Okay, what's the price This is the price maybe once or twice maybe no like normal bargaining negotiations? No problem. Can you put it a bit less this that but then he doesn't go to the like, fight? No, no, yeah, put it down. And
he doesn't do that. Sometime. Okay, this is a campaign no problem. Move away. You want to buy some honey the bar bar is sorry, selling some hand is a bar so when he's selling something you say this is my price. If somebody asks lower it, maybe he might lower it a bit if it's possible for him if he can't nicely, look, I can't lower it. Maybe some other time, I might be able to lower the price. Some honey the bar. This is the meaning of some honey, the bar, some honey restaurant when he's purchasing something, he doesn't go and haggle like crazy. No, no, no, no, you have to put it down. No, there is that he is gentle, a Muslim believing a man and woman the way they buy and sell you can
see that this is a Muslim business. This is a Muslim person who's buying and selling the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu they spread Islam not with sword as we know and neither even with Dawa.
In some parts of the world you know how Islam spread in subcontinent many people are from India and Pakistan and subcontinent and read the history, you know how Islam came into parts of India,
some of the Sahaba rhodiola who and whom they came as businessmen. And when they were doing business, some of the top your own as well when they were doing business. This these are documented incidents that customers would come, one of many became Muslims, because of one person who had a shop, he had a shop here, the other person has a shop there. And a customer would come and say can I buy this? Have you? He said yes. But go to that shop. He is selling the same item, same price. So why why don't you give it to me just go you know, they kept asking me if you've got the same item, same price. Why are you telling me to go to that person said Well, me and my brother both of us we
came together in the morning I saw him coming at the same time we opened our shops together. And since morning I've sat here and I've already had three customers and I've seen my brother has his had no customers. So I want my brother to also get profit just like I get profit. Please go to him. People saw this and they became Muslims. Is this how Muslims are. They have not unrivaled they don't have unhealthy rivalry. Because Liske is in the hands of the last panel there are some hand either some hand either shut off. And then the last one some hand either Tada. When he demands his right. Someone owes you money debt, even in their love forgave the person who was gentle look, you have to
have a stand if people are not paying you in time. That doesn't mean that you have to have a standard you have to. But it's just the way a person talks away a person deal away a person converses and interacts some hands some Aha, this is what we call some aha riff. This is all part of having concern for humanity and humanity. And coming to an end doesn't just include human beings. It includes every creation of Allah like we said, Allah loves his creation. So Allah wants us to be compassionate, merciful, gentle, kind, considerate to the whole of creation, animals as well. That's why we have some animal animal rights activists and rightly so Islam places a lot of importance on
not harming animals. This is also part of concern for humanity. Sorry, concern for the creation of Allah
knew that's a topic on its own because messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Subhanallah some of the edits you read that he was so agitated, he was
so upset when he would see somebody harming an animal. So many hundreds of Bahari. And one person is sitting on a animal mule horse. And you know, Captain sitting and put so much luggage unless you use a lot what he said and got upset he got angry in one when
he was you know, there was one day he someone took one of the animals and the mother of the animal was coming and spreading the wings and distressed and he got upset about that there's just so many ideas. He even said in the work. Another cliche is to pass the baton pass even when you slow to Islam allow slaughtering but even that there's rules more than this the behavioral issue, sometimes we forget, that's just one aspect. You know, when we say we want halal food, this difference between halaal and pious halaal is okay, the loser Is it the beehive this or not? That's of course, we need to eat Allah. But there's a there's a step beyond that.
step beyond that, that's what we call Pure Food we call a year. What does that mean? That means everything and anything related to the animal from the beginning, from before slaughter, what was the chicken grazing on what it was eating? organic is good, but what he was eating from everything to how you if you slaughter one animal in front of another, it's permissible, but like, you know, this is what you call having a messenger sallallahu Sallam could never do that. He could and if you've seen honestly, I've many, many years ago, I used to work with some organization and we we visited so many slaughterhouses in so many different different places in England and in France and
elsewhere. If you see that a chicken slaughtered in front of another chicken, you just see the other chickens faces and they are terrified. Like you can see in the face. Like if you have a heart, how can I cut this chickens thrown in front of another chicken? It's like, it's difficult for some human beings to do that. And this is what the message is for the law. He said and he said, Don't sharpen your knife in front of the animal hella handed to him. And he said to Sahabi Why didn't you sharpen it beforehand, or to redo a two meter motor or motor tape? You're giving it to death is already dead before he's looking at your life. You know, it's already dead back in you know, in places like
India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, people don't take care of these kind of rules. Just load every animal in front of and pull the animal and drag the animal and keep the animal. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said you will be questioned about this normal Yama. This is the creation of Allah subhana wa tada there are laws we need a whole course on the laws of animal treatment. There are laws in Islam how you treat and deal with animals, so many loads. Han Allah this is a topic on its own. We can't drag animals we can't give them undue hardship and pain more than needed. slaughtering that's why one of the etiquettes of slaughtering is sharpen the knife as much as possible. So that
slaughter is as quick and slick as possible just quick so that you save the animal from undue pain if you have pets at home, you might have mouse mice at home. There's rules that you can kill animals, animals can be killed if there's any benefit for the human being so like slaughtering is because it's for human benefit if it's other than eating benefits, or if it's to war of arm also permissible you have a poisonous snake you can kill so you can kill animals because Allah subhanaw taala has allowed that but in all situations when you're allowed to kill, you have to minimize pain as much as possible. So if you're trying to kill a mouse at your house because at all our biscuits
and crisps and you know, whatever I tell them I'm making all these holes everywhere. not permissible, but you have to as a Muslim, use a method that is the most efficient the most the quickest like you have you can't give it slow death. You know, in England we used to have in the UK we used to have these you know,
animal like there was a glue sticky glue. I don't know I felt that that was not right. Because, you know, the mouse comes and get stuck and then in till the morning
like waiting for six hours of painful slow death. Like waiting that I know after six hours when these guys wake up, they will come and kill me six hours of torture. I don't know I'm not giving a fatwa it's haram but I mean, like, with a good heart It's difficult to do something like that. Even on animals there's another Hadith and I will end with this I just remembered the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in a hadith of Bokhari in one narration is mentioned he was a man in another narration is mentioned as a woman that there was a woman who's this in one narration the woman was a prostitute. He must have heard of imagine she was walking she saw colonial health. A
dog gasping of water because of thirst yaku thora like licking the wet sand? mineral Akash so she looked at it this dog and said this dog is thirsty just like I am thirsty for Mullah cafo in wondering why a hobo she went inside she took a sock off and in the hopes she
Putting in the water and because you had to climb up with the using the two hands, so she put the hope in her mouth between a tea and she climbed up and came and gave the water to the dog This is in Sahil Bukhari what is the messenger sallallahu ceramsite. He said for shirker, Allahu Allahu Allah.
Literally translation is a lot of banter, sugar. But that's not the translation we do because the law doesn't need to thank anyone. The proper correct translation would be appreciated deed and because of which she was forgiven.
Imagine a woman who was involved in sin all her life, for one act of taking her leather socks off and putting water and giving it to a dog, Allah subhanaw taala forgiveness. So to summarize, in some openshot la mia Lost Planet, Allah grant has the ability to create this concern in our heart, for the whole of creation of Allah subhanaw taala, not for anything else not, not for showing off. Remember, it has to be with the class, not to show off otherwise, there's no reward, not to be considered to be a very, very generous person in the community. We live in a time where name really matters, of course, but it's really for the sake of Allah not because I will be known as a very
humanitarian person or a very considerate person. It's only for the sake of Allah for the pleasure of Allah for the rewards in the era, for the love of Allah that we have. Sometimes you spend with your right hand and your left hand is a no, that's the greatest form of charity. We see all the rewards in the next life doing things for others for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah, nobody should know. I know. You know, and our Lord knows in sha Allah he would assist rule all of us just for listening to me and forgive me if I said anything.
