prospective listeners do your brothers and sisters are Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. I welcome all of you once again, to our daily discussion and my daily discourse on the topic of family disputes, causes and solutions. Today we have a very short program.
But I want to move on now because we are now coming to the end of the series of lectures, I want to move on to our 10th and final cause of family disputes.
Through the course of the holy month of Ramadan, I have been discussing with the brothers and sisters, the various causes of family disputes, various things that contribute to the disputes, friction, problem, argumentation, quarrels, that we find ourselves in, and that we find our families in
and our communities.
We've discussed many different causes. Yesterday, I talked about
the justice, which was caused number nine, which was snooping around and trying to investigate and investigating and trying to find out the ills of other people.
Today and tomorrow, I want to discuss with you in sha Allah, the last and final course, which is
and being unjust.
In Arabic, we use the term volume, learning also means oppression, it means oppression and suppression. And a volume is an oppressor, but also injustice is
called volume. Because injustice is
a form may be the most effective form of oppression, injustice is nothing but oppression. And if you really see brothers and sisters, you know, in the world, all the problems we see, will the wars that have taken place in the world and that continue to take place.
conflicts that we see in the world, they are nothing but a result of injustice.
Seriously, they are nothing but a result of injustice. Injustice is carried out by individuals, by family members, by individuals, by organizations, by governments. They all need to result in violence, chaos, anarchy, war, injustice, terminates peace and harmony. And to bring about peace and harmony in this world, we need to be more just as individuals, as family members, as people in the community, as well as leaders, as well as collectively on an organization level as well as as a government we need to be just and Islam places a lot of importance. On justice on Adam, the Arabic term for justice is added.
One is injustice, an adult is justice. Other is justice. So the cause of many
disputes and conflicts and friction within the society within the community within the family is because of injustices perpetrated and carried out by certain individuals.
If a father is unjust,
in the house, he is unjust in the way he treats his children, automatically, it will result in
feelings being hurt, and it will automatically result in family conflict.
This is not rocket science, it's common sense. It's inevitable. If a father, for example, has three children, three sons, for example, and he favors one over the other two.
The result will be without doubt that they'll be friction within within the three we know the famous story of say you're gonna use of peace be upon him. And I don't have time to go through the whole surah and the whole story. But we know the story of use of alayhi salatu salam peace be upon him
and his brother Binyamin
and their brothers.
Right? They're brothers that jealousy that took place between them.
It created a lot of friction amongst them.
The jealousy they had, because they felt which was not right. I mean, this is one example of injustice out below. Without a doubt, there was no injustice on any part of any pert prophet of Allah. But they felt that they, this is the reason and they were wrongly under the impression that their father, so you do not have a cold peace be upon him, was unjust.
And therefore it resulted in enmity and hatred in the hearts.
It resulted in enmity and hatred in the huts,
even though they were wrongful in their shame, and they were mistaken in the understanding. But the point here is that normally when injustices are carried out, it creates problems.
In any family relationship. You see, if the mother, for example, favors one daughter over the other, or the father favors one daughter over the other, it's going to cause enmity in the heart jealousy, it will lead to disputes and friction and problem and argumentation that is no doubt and there is no denying this fact.
Likewise, you know, if you have another in law, and you have to do it in laws, she favors she favors one daughter in law, she treats the wife of one of her sons in a better way, and not the other one. She doesn't give the rights of the other. She gives preference to one over the other. When she talks to one daughter in law, she respects her and she's sweet, and she's sound and she's polite, and she's gentle, and she's considerate, and she's kind and she's sweet, in her tone and soft. And she talks to her in a loving and caring manner, by when she talks with, you know, the other day daughter in law, she is harsh, reserved, aggressive. If she does that,
then there's nothing to be amazed if her behavior causes friction within the 213 laws. And within that daughter in law, who is not treated well by her and herself, and it will cause problems. So injustice low, we have been ordered and commanded Islam. You know, there is one word that is the essence brothers and sisters of all Islamic teachings, all Islamic laws, which is justice, justice, and Adam is the core of Islamic teachings. Our whole deen the religion of Islam is based on justice, on being impartial on being just on equality and being fair. In one's actions, one's dealings and even in one's thoughts in one's thoughts. Even the way we think about people, the way we deal with
and the way we interact with people, and even the way we think about people we need to be just just as an adult. It's the
central one of the central teachings of Islam. To the point brothers and sisters. Listen to this carefully to the point that you know what, even our belief, even our appeal, right, which is the occasion of Tawheed our basic appeal our first and foremost Adid we
Just believing in the Oneness of Allah who subhanho wa Taala will we call it the heat, even though he is based on justice, and you know how there's a hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he mentioned the various major sins the enormities. And then he says, and third you're either you learn he needs then Wahoo or halacha. And the GI that he learned then wahala kata that you associate partners, you see the opposite of dough hate or hate is believing in the Oneness of Allah. So we c'est la ilaha illa Allah there is no God but Allah in Allah Allah. Verily, Allah is the One and Only nurtured eCola he has no partners, associating partners with Allah is Schick, the
opposite of the Hadees ship, and Schilke is a major sin. Right? So the messengers of Allah, Allah usnm said,
and third, you're either le la he hit done well, who were halacha that's one of the great sins is that you associate partners with your LORD with Allah, whilst Allah is the One Who has created you.
You associate partners with Allah was Allah is the One who created you. In other words, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us that look, it's
injustice and it's being unjust on your part, to associate partners with Allah because Allah creates you. And then you go and say, You know what? Allah Yeah, I believe in you, you're a god. But then there's another god as well. That's
being unjust with Allah. So even though he'd we believe that there is only one Allah, if we are just with our God, who will say Allah, you're the only one, we believe in The Hague of Allah, because that is required by justice. If you're a just person, then you will believe in only one Allah. Because if you associate partners with God with Allah, then you are being unjust because the One who created you, you're, you're being unfair to the Creator who created you, because you're saying that you know, there's another God with you whilst he's the only one who created you.
And that's why shirk, which is associating partners with Allah is called Boom. Look, listen to this carefully. We have idle, which is justice, and the Arabic of injustice, as I mentioned, this previously, loom right.
Now as an idle justice,
has a connection with low heat, meaning Tauheed, believing in Oneness of Allah is connected to it's based on either, right? Believing in the Oneness of Allah so we believe that Allah is only one what I said, What did I say? It is based on justice. So if you look at it from the advice versus scenario or angle, the opposite is that shook. Shake which is associated partners, Allah the opposite of the hate is based on bone, which is oppression, which is opposite of either
Do you understand what I'm saying?
So he the Oneness of Allah, is based on Idol justice. So the opposite of the hate the Oneness of Allah, which you should, is based on the opposite of justice, which is one and actually Allah says this in the Quran, he says, in a shirker nobleman of him. He coats this one. Man Hakeem, the wise man, you know Lachman again he was a wise person. There are many advices of his given in the Quran to his son, and he said yerbabuena year, learn to shirk villa. Oh my beloved son do not commit Schick do not associate partners with Allah, because why in the sugar law Voluma Navin because associating partners with Allah is a major, major act of injustice, of oppression of non Soto, he
there's a major act of Adam and Schilke. associating partners Well, law is an act of injustice. So even our basic Aqeedah is based on other injustice.
Our whole religion Islam is based on justice.
Allah Himself Subhan Allah you know Allah subhanaw taala he describes himself as a just person. Justice is one of the attributes one of the suffered one of the qualities of Allah subhanho wa taala. Of the 99 names of Allah we find that either that just one
read the can read the 99 names in religious on with this arena isn't meant for her Donald Jana. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in the Hadith
Very Allah has 99 names, whoever preserves them memorizes them and and you know, implements the things
and qualities in his life and acts upon the commands of Allah the meaning of the Hadith, he shall enter Jannah. So we know Allah has mentioned names, one of the 99 names of Allah is an added, he is the just one another name is an MCSA and MCSE it means the dispenser of justice. So Allah is the just one and he is the dispense of justice
and Allah Himself will implement his the just Ian's who will himself implement justice on Yokoyama on the day of judgment and therefore if we want Allah subhanaw taala to be just with us, then we need to treat everyone fairly justly and equally. Allah Himself He says this in the Quran in surah. Colombia, one of our own our zinal plus
one of our limousines this polynomial piano by the total number units on che were in Canada with Paula habit him in her Dehlin Athena Herbie Hancock Athena has been Allah says we will place the scales of justice on yomo pm on the Day of Judgment.
No soul will be cheated and justly latifolium will have to share even when Kenneth call her birth in her violin, even if there is the weight of a mustard seed,
we will bring it to account. And enough worker Verbena has been real enough to take account even a small thing that we do, Allah will say is that we will bring it to the fore. Allah will be just Allah Himself is the just and he will implement justice on yo Yama.
There's a famous Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari you know the final Hadith sahih al Bukhari the last Hadith Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah the unhooking his agenda so he he has a chapter right at the end it says verbal only Lolita Isla one of the remote went over all my words, you know what, none of them will go long Doosan Rapala Mujahid
Rooney or Amilcar, sit for Hua Jaya. Ironically, we're coming to the end of our series of talks and we're reading the last chapter of sahih al Bukhari, Hmong Buhari has his chapter regarding this verse of Allah where he says, We will place the scales of justice in on the Day of Judgment, Allah will play scales of justice and our actions will be weighed the good and the bad.
Our actions will an Amanda Benito them will own a home to our actions and our statements, whatever we've said, Whatever we've done, all of that will be putting the scale on the day of judgment. And then even when Buhari mentioned the final Hadith where he says had gotten
hammered have not forgotten. An auditor new CA CA and visa interview Herrera Toro the Allahu Allah, Allah so Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Gilliam attorney, have you been attorney in our region of youth attorney and then listen subpoena attorney if you mizune Subhan Allah he will be handy he Subhanallah when he mentioned this hadith coach, this hadith via a chain of transmission all the way to say you do not know the Allahu Anhu says that a messenger of ALLAH the messenger of God Salawat Allahu wa Salam wa and he said, there are two statements, two phrases Delima attorney two sentences, which are most beloved to the old merciful to the Rama and to Allah, there are
extremely light on the tongue of if attorney Annalisa but Ray T on the scale to prove that there will be a scale. If we want our scale to be weighty with good actions, the following two sentences will help greatly and then he mentioned those two Subhan Allah he will be handy. Number one Subhan Allah Hill Alvine number two, and therefore brothers and sisters, you know, we should make a habit of reading these two sentences, really, especially in the month of Ramadan. Many scholars you know, encouragement advice for us to constantly read these two statements Subhan Allah who will be handling Subhan Allah Allah Allah.
So Allah Subhana Allah Allah himself, is that just one an adult?
Right, he himself calls himself that just one Allah subhanaw taala himself is the dispenser of justice and looks at and he himself will act in a just manner on Yom Kippur Yama, and He has commanded and ordered us as well. To be just there are numerous verses
numerous in the Quran. There are numerous verses brothers and sisters. There's literally so many verses
In the Quran that took and many Hadith of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that talk about justice as well and talk about injustice,
many verses, but just one or two as an example, there is a famous verse in Surah Nisa
where when ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, says, Johan ladina Manu, who knew Awami in a bit of shahada and Allah he will know Allah and Vasica will validate Allah carabin econo Rani and our puppy run for Allahu Allah Vizima phonetic Devi on her entire Do ye in Telugu how to enable for in Allah Hi KENNETH
This is a best in Surah to Musa
one of the fundamental verses of justice of Adam
Oh you who believe ALLAH says to us oh you believe he's talking to me and you? Yeah, you enter the nominal guru aware Amina bill.
Stand Out firmly for justice corner a woman
stand up firmly, firmly for justice. shahada, Allah as a witness to Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah and posi come.
wallow, wallow Allah and persico, even if it's against your own selves, Subhan Allah this amazing verse, Be just even if you have to go against yourself, even if you have to go against your own selves, but be just we as Muslims, we have to be just
a will validate even if you have to go against your own parents. If your parents are favoring someone because and they should not be favoring, then be just be truthful. You can't just favor your parents. Because they have parents. You can't just side with your brother or your sister just because he's your brother or she's your sister. Allah says well, Robin and your relatives be just stand out firmly for justice. Even even even if it's against your own selves or your parents who are against your relatives in your own inner corner Ronny and alpha urine for LA hola vision, whether it's against rich or poor for Allah, we protect both. Some people have this tendency, unfortunately,
to side with the rich people because why they want some money from them. Unless it's a crime. This is a crime according to this verse. don't favor someone because they're rich or they're poor. Be just find that a tibial Hawa and Tadeu
don't follow your desires and don't turn away from justice. What Intel will ultimately do if you distort justice, or you declined to do justice, for in Allaha Kennedy matava Luna hubiera let it be known that Allah is well aware, well aware of what you do.
This is this is iron Surah Nisa, we have to seriously be just even this ayah tells us that even against our own relatives and parents, and Llahi brothers and sisters, if we bring about justice
in our lives, and we are just then
we will see
many evils and many social problems disappearing. We have to be extremely impartial in everything we do. In everything we do.
There's another verse In surah Allah ADA
Allah subhanaw taala says yeah your login it's similar type of us Yeah, you're Latina ermine who aware mean and in law he shahada a bit of what he remember Commissioner Coleman Elijah do they are they do who Acropolis Taqwa Allah? Allah
Oh you who believe again? Allah dresses us? Yeah, you Alladhina ermine, Oh you who believe who Awami in any law he should stand out firmly for Allah. This verse is slightly different in the previous verse, Who are Wamena Bill crisply, shahada Adela here guna Amina Elahi shahada Olympus standard firmly for Allah
which as a witness to justice
and then Allah says what allegedly mana Commissioner earn oming Allah Allah do not let the hatred of a people make you move away from justice and depart from justice. What is the last thing that you know sometimes when you dislike someone like you see in the previous verse, Allah says even if it's against your parents, your own thoughts and your relatives in other words, your liking your love for someone should not stop you from being just right. In this verse, Allah says Don't let your dislike Nigerian manner Commissioner earn who your enmity your hatred
of a people make you depart from
justice. In other words, two things in this world stop people from being just
one is extra liking of someone love, closeness. And the other is extreme hatred and dislike and enmity. Allah says as a Muslim, it's our duty, whether we love someone or whether we hate someone, whether we are close to someone or we are distant from someone, whether someone's our family member or or an enemy, if we have to act them, we must act justly. And then Allah commands IR dealu This is an AMA command here do you be just who are parabolas? Toccoa that's more close to piety. So we have to be just justice means giving everyone their due, right? treating everyone equally fairly, despite difference of color, race, ethnicity,
right? So it's very important. Time is very short and today inshallah I will just stop here because we have very less time today. But in sha Allah, who to Allah, I'm going to continue tomorrow Thursday, around 630 ish till before with our my final discourse on this topic, this final cause which I'll continue discussing justice and injustice in sha Allah and then we'll conclude tomorrow JazakAllah high for listening today.

especially his brothers sisters do you listen is once again a Salam or aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh. I welcome all of you to my final
you lesson discourse, pork, lectures speech on the topic of family disputes, causes and solutions. And today is our final one, unfortunately,
and we are discussing the last and final cause of family disputes, which I started discussing yesterday with you, which was injustice one. And I mentioned yesterday, if you remember that justice and either is one of the basic teachings of Islam. It's actually one of the central obligations of Islam. And I mentioned as well that Allah Subhana Allah Himself is the just one one of the names of Allah is an idol.
And he is the dispenser of justice who will deal with all of us on the Day of Judgment with justice. And I mentioned a couple of verses of the Quran from Surah, Nisa, and Surah yesterday about you know, being just standing out firmly for justice and not letting our love for someone who our dislike for someone, our liking of someone and our dislike or hatred for someone prevent us from being just and from implementing justice, which is a major crime. Injustice is so we have to be just an injustice, which is our which is the 10th and final cause of family disputes injustice, one
is, you know, it really contributes injustice results in crime, in chaos, in disorder in anarchy in the world.
It's one of the major reasons of family disputes and not just family disputes, but social disputes, community disputes and disputes in the world, in justices that are perpetrated and carried out by governments and by organizations, individuals as well as organizations, they result in war.
Peace evaporates from a world in which injustice is take place. So injustice and injustice is they result in crime in this order in chaos in anarchy in war, it results in probably
billions argumentation, there is no peace. And when you have justice when we all act upon each other, and we all implement justice, and we all become just in the way we deal with people in the way we interact with people in the way we talk with people in the way we think about people, then Subhanallah it brings about peace and harmony within our societies within the family, and it brings about peace in the world.
You know, you must have heard brothers of amagno Abdel Aziz, the famous Khalifa, the Calum of Islam, he was considered to be the just ruler. Reason being is because, you know, after the whole of our rush to do an underwriter guided Cola, you know, in the blue Omega and Omega they ruled
the Muslim lands
there were quite a few rulers who are corrupt the OMA we empire, right? So after the rightly guided, Khalifa of Islam, came to an end the OMA we M. Empire. They took over and then they eventually fell into customs and traditions of Jessenia. And they extremely distant from the teachings of Islam, and they were carrying out a lot of injustice is the state treasury better morale became their personal wealth, and they were spending money on their own. And, you know, many wrongful activities were taking place. At that time, Omar Abdullah Abdullah Aziz took the reign of Khilafah the leadership of the Muslims in Nigeria and Hijiri he was the grandson of Marwan, and he actually put revolution he
is considered to be the just ruler because he, you know, implemented justice
not just on everyone else, but on his own self. On his own self, he dispelled, expelled and dismissed the corrupt and cruel, unjust governance. There were a lot of interest dividends in the OMA we Empire, and he expelled all of them. He ordered all state officials to be extremely careful and just in the dealings with state property. And because of his justice, it brought about peace and tranquility and harmony amongst the Muslims to the point that you must have heard you must have heard about this that when say you're gonna Omar Abdul Aziz Rahim Allah are there and when he became the Khalifa of the Muslims, when he took the reign of Minerva the wolves start stopped attacking the
sheep. Even the wolves, it had an impact his justice, right, His justice and his either had an impact on even the animals to the point that even the wolves, they stopped attacking the sheep and they coexisted peacefully Subhan Allah revolution, you can actually have an impact on the animals. So why not on human beings? If you're in a family, and you want to avoid corruption and fights and argumentation be just, Oh, Father, be an adult, be a just father, teach your
children equally fairly, impartially, Oh, mother, be adjust whether you're treating your children or your children in law, whether your daughter in laws, right? father's role with your daughter knows, son in law's daughter in laws, treat them all equally. If you're a brother or a sister, cheat or your siblings justly and justice, treating them justly and justice means giving everyone their due. Right. That's what it means. Justice means giving everyone that you right, treating everyone equally fairly, despite whatever differences people have of color, race, ethnicity, don't favor one over the other. That's what justice means. And it will seriously prevent a lot of problems in our communities
and and stop a lot of conflict.
And I mentioned two verses from the Quran yesterday, if you remember, from Surah Surah, to Nyssa, where Allah Subhana Allah talks to us about, about justice and about injustice.
There's another verse in Surah Hadith that Allah says, While occurred out of Santa Rosa Lennar biloba unit or unzila, Mr. Holman, kita Well, it means earlier humanness.
Verily, We have sent the prophets
with signs and we have revealed with them books and the balance, Lea Oomen nurse will be oppressed so that people stand with justice.
This verse Subhanallah of Surah Hadith indicates that
You know one of the main reasons or probably the sole purpose this ayah indicates that the sole purpose of sending the prophets by Allah was to establish justice in the world and to end injustice. Because Allah says Allah, Allah says Rosalina will Verily We have sent Our Messengers our profits, and then at the end of the versus is linear uma nurse will request Why did we send them so that for the reason of four because of so that humanity and mankind and nurse, implement and stand out with justice and implement justice? And another another interesting point, point in this verse is that here Allah did not say Leah, human Muslim honorable plus, not so that Muslims be just humanity.
Humanity. Contrary to the other two verses were Allah subhanaw taala addressed me a new Oh, you who believe? Here, Allah talks about humanity. In other words, justice, an idol is binding on all of humanity on everyone, on everyone.
And there are numerous other verses. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam talks about himself in Surah, Surah, O'Meara to the ideal of a unicorn, I've been commanded to be just between you way that had come from being a nurse, faculty, mobile adult, when you judge between people, you know, if you have a problem, like have a dispute, you're a father,
you're a judge. Every person in a position of authority has to you know, arbitrate. If you're for example, a father and two of your sons come with a dispute. Why the heck come to mean a nurse when you have to arbitrate
arbitrate with justice? Well, I happen to be in a nurse and back and we'll be in Allah honey and Maria in valcambi. How beautiful is the teaching of Allah that he's giving you?
With another point your way that had come from being a nurse, Allah says when you have to arbitrate between people, you never say between Muslims, non Muslims, wishing people even if on one side as a Muslim and on the other side of the non Muslim, you have to be just, you can't just some you can't just favor someone because just because it's a Muslim.
I mean, some Muslims have this, I don't know, twisted, distorted idea or understanding. I don't know where they've taken this from off saying that it doesn't matter whatever. If the Muslim is against, you know, a non Muslim, there's a case and you have to arbitrate between a Muslim Muslim and a non Muslim even if the Muslim is guilty of the crime and and guilty. Here's the guilty party and here's the perpetrator, you still have to favor him.
Ridiculous, totally against the teachings of Islam.
There are many examples of this, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was extremely just with between a Muslim and a Jew.
So we have to be just Allah says we're either Hakim combine a nurse no difference between Muslims and non Muslims. Another verse which we regularly we regularly hear,
in our Juma prayers in the hotbar
if you go to the masjid for Jamar, I'm sure all of you know this. Yes, the hotbar ends with this the finest sermon ends with this in Allaha Morrow Bill addley when sad when he even quarterback when her fascia women carry well above, here evoke for me I look into the karoun and then what does the Imam say oh, the Corolla he'll come with earliest blood come with a crowbar, he will love your alma mater Snellen and everybody stands up. Probably every bit starts they start standing up from Allahu Allah even before the Imam completes his Hotbird sermon.
Anyway, but that's another story.
But this verse, Allah says in Allah yet moral adult Verily, Allah commands your moral, yet moral. Amara Amara your moral means Allah commands Allah orders justice when SN and perfection and excellency in Allah yet moral will agree will sign so justice Allah or does it
and this is the reason why this this idea is such a unique is the logarithm of screwed us to say this is one of the most comprehensive verses of the Quran in Allah mobile agony Allah orders and commands Justice when son and excellency when he started the quarterback and giving your close relatives their rights when her and Allah forbid were in her and in fascia II women carry well by ALLAH forbids shameless deeds sinful activity with
when her and Fashi women carry well buddy and rebellion.
So we really need to be just brothers and sisters.
In justice, as I said in
In any way, shape or form
brings about crimes was results in chaos and anarchy. One wherever it is carried out in whatever capacity by whoever, whether collectively or individually, whether on an individual level or a governmental level or
organizational level in whatever form, whenever injustice is practiced or carried out, then the natural result will be chaos, anarchy, argumentation, war, and, you know, it will remove peace and harmony. Whereas, if justice is practice is carried out, we are all just in the way we deal with people that in sha Allah from Insha Allah, it will result in peace and harmony
in the household, in the societies in the communities.
So, Islam places a lot, a lot, a great deal of emphasis on, you know, justice and great deal of emphasis on justice.
And we have to I mean, this injustice is one of the, you know,
major causes of family disputes, we see even the messenger sallallahu alayhi, wa salam Subhan Allah, he was probably the most justif individuals. I mean, we said Allah subhanaw taala will deal with us justly but even the messenger of allah sallallahu Allah said, there are so many incidents of the messenger sallallahu alayhi salam being just with his companions, even with the enemies of Islam, story of the Haber when he beseech the port of Haber. And, you know, there are many examples.
The another example of saving it, you have no authority over the Allahu Anhu and the Jewish person in the court of sharee. McCauley another example I don't have time. So we need to be just we really need to be just
and there are a lot of rewards in CCleaner and Allahu Allah manera behrami Noren and Yamini Rahmani as our channel will kill tell you they hear me in an arena Yeah, they don't see how can we him Lee mama well Subhan Allah and amazing Hadith This is a Hadith in the psyche of Imam Muslim. Imam Muslim Rahim Allah mentions this hadith in his book, Muslims of Saudi Arabia my Muslim, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said those people who are just
by Allah on the Day of Judgment, they'll be on pulpits made out of light on the right hand side of the All Merciful Allah subhanaw taala
there'll be placed on pulpits Mimbres monad, are made out of neutron light. This is the reward and who are these people? The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said levena Yeah, Luna fee hook me him. Lee him wanna? Well, this is the really important part of Hadith. These are the people who were just in the world in regards to the decision making in regards to the arbitration was really him and they cheated the family, him and his family.
They treated their family with justice, one, our Willow and those under the supervision and guardianship, and under their care. And this This is related to everyone. It's not just, it's the father under his care and supervision, his wife, his children, right, he needs to be just the way he treats them, giving them their rights, and avoid injustice on volume and oppression. Likewise, the mother has to be just
employer has to be just with his employees. The boss of a business has to be just if he
is unjust, it will create problems. A teacher has to be just between his students.
In every area sphere of our lives, adult and justice must be implemented and injustice, one must be avoided must be avoided.
There's a hadith in Sahih al Bukhari when the messenger salAllahu alayhi wa sallam said yeah, do you know being an older Deacon fill a three year?
Deal lubaina Allah decompile a three year be just when giving gifts to your children.
Be just when you give gifts to your children. I mean Subhanallah amazing. How explicit can you get
when you are distributing gifts, distribute them equally be just because if you don't feelings will be hurt. A lot of these problems you know in our societies in our families that are created because of this inheritance times or for example, in the in the lifetime
a person wants to remember there's a difference. This is not
The time for me to discuss this. But remember, there's a difference between inheritance and gift. Inheritance is something that is given to someone after one dies, right? If you say to your son, okay, when I die, you have this property that inheritance and you can actually do that the rules of inheritance apply. And gift is when you give to someone like you say to your son, for example, and look, this house, the property is yours, I've got nothing to do with it as of today, as of now, this instant this moment, then that becomes a gift. He can take the property and say to dad, okay, sorry, I don't want you to be in the property get out of it. He can do so it becomes his. So that's a gift.
Now giving gifts to our children. We have to be justice actually one of the major crimes, one of the major sinful activities, when we give gifts to our children, and we don't give them equally and we don't be just It's haram sinful. In some cases, brothers and sisters, that may be an exception for that consulter your local scholars maybe in some cases,
like for example, you know, I mean, there are some cases, but generally you have to be just look at this hadith in a de lubaina Hola deconflict a three year be extremely just with your children when giving gifts.
And Sahil Bukhari there's another Hadith where the companion
Norma NewBlue Bashir Radi Allahu Anhu may Allah be pleased with him.
There's a Sahami known as a man being the shield. His father, came with him to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his father came with him to the messenger of allah sallallahu and he was sent and brought him and he said, y'all rasool Allah, O Messenger of Allah, this is the father of Tarmin Bashir, he said O Messenger of Allah, in the know how to even he had a gulaman in hell to even he had a woman, you're the son of mine, This child of mine, whose name is not a man in Bashir, I have gave have given him a gift.
A woman a slave in those dark times in those days they saw the slave just like saying, you know, this son of mine, you know, I've given him a car as a gift. For example.

The Quran says it's an Akula while a deca, no helter Mithra who have you given all your other children a similar gift?
Allah Allah, He said no messenger of Allah, I've only given it to him. All of us jer who so then the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, take it back, take your gift back then.
He actually wanted the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be a witness in another rewire variation of this hadith. He mentioned that I came to the Messenger of Allah and he was sitting with my son or man in the shed and I said, Oh, this year of Allah have given this son of mine a gift. I want you to be a witness. In US. It's good. Sometimes we can give someone a gift, making someone a witness, the look, be a witness. So everybody knows you're my witness that I've given this gift him. So the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after asking him that have you given all your children and similar gift? And he said, No. So you know what the messengers of Allah
He said, find out to Shivani in the in Nila shadow Allah Joden don't then don't if you haven't given a similar gift to all your children, then don't make me a witness. I don't want to know um, I will not be a witness to this gift. Because I the messengers of Allah Hardison says, law.

Hadith a body again for toquilla Hawaii Rubina, Willa decom, fear Allah and be just with your children, fear Allah and be

The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to be extremely careful. He used to be extremely careful. He used to be just with his wives in all social, economic and physical aspects. And then even after that, he used to make a DUA and he used to say Allahumma heard our casa mia female Amulek vanetta lumen a female termly called an omelet for that a woman if you met them Licola I'm like, Oh Allah, I have done my best to be just with my wives, please do not hold me account to that which I have been just in regards to what I can be just about.

Be just with the children is a major problem in our communities. A divorce takes place the two feminists become lifelong enemies. Islam says just the pot and Unturned move away in a night in it sorry, in a nice, amicable manner and depart without any grievances in the heart. Don't use the child or the children.
And don't use them to get your own back on your spouse. Be just just be just you know, justice is very important to me. Just all our problems that are created in the community are many of them. Not all because there's many causes of family disputes. Many of these are because of injustice alone. And I mentioned that our problems occur because of injustice is
I give examples. Father is unjust. With his children, it creates problems in the family. The mother is unjust with her daughters, she's favoring one over the other and just with her daughter in laws favoring one over the other. The sister in law is unjust towards her sister in laws because she's favoring one over the other. She's siding with one brother siblings amongst one another. Uncles and Aunts with a nephew nieces, siding with one being unjust treating people unfairly. The mother treats her children unjustly. I mean, I know many examples. I know one brother, he's in his 50s and 60s, and he's crying his old mother all her life. She's excited with one son her there's only two of them
with his brother.
Even to the point of inheritance, she's siding with him and she's giving everything to him and this and that. And this one is just this brother is just,
you know, overlooked and everything. And he's about 50 odd and he will Allah He brothers he cried, I saw him crying because of the injustice is carried out by his own mother. Doesn't another fear Allah subhanaw taala favoring one over the other.
All these problems that are created are because of these in justices in the society. So in the family, and then in the workplace, in the society.
employees and employers we need to be practice justice, we need to be just at the schools and mother says, teacher with the students be just right, be just and then politically on a government level as well. Because we have all this injustice is carried out. It results in anarchy, chaos and war. Now loss of subhanho wa Taala either make us just May Allah Subhana Allah give us the quality of justice. May Allah subhanaw taala enable us to practice and implement justice. May Allah save us from being unjust in Europe. Anyway, time is very short now brothers and sisters. To wrap up today's show and wrap up my series in the next five or seven minutes that I have in front of me.
We started the series
of the talk on the topic of family disputes causing solutions that if you remember right in the beginning of Ramadan and MODOK I started with a couple of days discussing
The importance of maintaining family ties the importance of maintaining kinship, the importance of building bridges with your family members and relatives and the severity of breaking ties, and the severity and the sinfulness of hatred and dislike and enmity towards family members especially. So we're talking about family conflicts. And I mentioned a lot of verse of the Quran and many Hadith and we talked about that and then we went into discussing the causes, which I think are the major causes. And there may be some others as well. I mean, discuss 10 throughout the month of Ramadan, but there may be many others as well. But we talked about 10 main causes of family disputes. Can you
remember I'm just going to recap all of them right now.
Number one, incorrect intentions, right at the beginning of Ramadan, we discussed this and when we are good to our family members, even when we maintain ties, stiletto Rahim, our intention is to be appreciated, to be thanked for people to say mashallah people to show gratitude. And because of that, it creates a lot of problems. Because when we are good to people, and they don't appreciate it, then we feel sad and we feel you know, upset and then that's it. Problems are created. We should be good to his people for the sake of Allah, our reward is in the Arcata. When we are good to his people, we are gentle to his people. We are nice to people, we give people rights for the sake of
Allah and no one else. So don't expect anything in return. So the first solution
is that we should change our intentions to save or near correct our intentions. That's the solution. In sha Allah, if we say we will be good at everyone give every one of our family members and relatives they do right for the sake of Allah for no one else, you shall have many problems was solved. Number two, the second major cause that we discussed was
diseased hearts, unreformed hearts, spiritual diseases we have in our hearts, all the various spiritual diseases, especially jealousy, and you know, hatred hassad and, you know, love of dunya and things like that. And because of this many problems that occurred, we really need to the remedy the solution is here to help. We need to purify our souls, our hearts, from jealousy and from enmity and from the very spiritual diseases and we really need to work on our hearts. We need to go to Allah subhanaw taala with a sound Alban, Salim Yamuna and famine. Whatever the noon illuminate Allahu COVID Salim nothing will be beneficial on the Day of Judgment except his sound hot. We had a
clean pure sound heart, Allah He many of our disputes will be avoided. We won't have jealousy, we won't be jealous with our brothers or sisters or the other daughter in law or whatever. Number three monetary issues and I discussed this topic in quite detail many problems are caused due to financial monetary transaction dealings, the way we deal we are not clear cut with our dealings. We don't we don't be clear about who owns what and when we transact about debts and I talked about taking loans and taking debts be very, very clear act upon the rules of Islam in regards to financial military dealings, because many problems and many conflicts and disputes are created because of money.
You know, money is the cause of many problems in the community. Number four, the fourth major cause of family disputes was uncontrolled usage of our tongues, our tongues, they just Move move move. We don't think before we talk we say everything and then we you know say Oh, should we have Senator night. And I talked about this in great detail. The solution is we need to really preserve our tongues. We need to guard our tongues we need to think before we speak. Number five was being selfish. This this bad quality that some of us have of being selfish, self centered me myself and I know what matters. According to Islam and the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we
need to learn we don't have a competitor you're humble, you're female, you're humble enough so you cannot be a total complete believer until you don't lie for yourself for your life for the fellow Muslim brother or sister. So we need the solution was to bring about the quality of ethos or the quality of preference or the Sahaba you know, people we we are ready to bear a bit of difficulty and hardship for the sake of others. Number six, the sixth main cause of family disputes was anger and anger Allahu Akbar, it's really bad. You know, we really need to treat anger if we have anger, brothers, if some of us do have anger can be treated Islamically there are many treatments, which I
discussed. But even if you can go to an expert and get some anger management treatment hamdulillah do it. The remedies solution is to have supper and swallowing and controlling one's anger. Number seven, the seventh major cause of family disputes that we discussed was misunderstandings. A lot of times we hear things that are misunderstood.
meaning someone said this and he said this and she said that and it's just confusions and misconceptions and misunderstandings. And based on the verse to let you know, in a converse on Vinoba imperturbable we need to verify Allah says, Look, verify, don't just, you know, do believe in everything verification. Number eight, the eighth major cause a foreign dispute was having bad opinion about pico su have been having bad opinion about people baseless assumptions. And you know, the solution is giving people the benefit of the doubt if someone if you hear someone said something, or someone did something, give them benefit of the doubt explain it away or is she made
she doesn't mean any harm he doesn't mean any harm in a nice way. We talked about that. Number nine major one of the number nine cause of family disputes that we discussed was that justice, snooping around being an investigator researching looking into the false and ills and sins and, and bad habits of people, we really, really, really need to avoid that right, we really need to avoid that we need to concentrate on our own faults because we are all sinful. And number 10 that we discussed yesterday and today the final cause of family disputes and family friction and social disputes was injustice of one and we need to bring about justice and idol in our life in order inshallah to bring
about peace and harmony in this world. So with this we come to the end of today's program discourse and this years Ramadan, discourses, brothers and sisters hamdulillah it's been beneficial for me. I mean, it's more beneficial for me than probably yourselves and I really pray Allah subhanaw taala grant us the ability, that ova to act upon really because it's not entertainment, we really need to act upon what we read what we learn, right? It's really for acting and for implementing. And so May Allah grant me first of all, and I ask all of you brothers and sisters to please make dua for me if you've benefited from something please make dua for me that Allah gives me and grants me that offer
an ability to practice if I have said anything good in Cana, Sullivan Femina Allah if I've said anything good is from Allah when kind of Hassan and if I've said anything wrong, or incorrect for me numina Chapin then it's from me and from Shabbat. I asked you forgiveness if I offended anyone who said anything out of context it wasn't mentioned that way. And we pray to Allah just make a one minute two hour because time is less so I've been at the hub a minute in the country simulator I mean, Moto Ballina, Mo learner in the consumable Rahim Allah Houma in Nana Steadicam in Haiti mess El Camino Abdullah when a video because he you don't know Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when
