Imam Shafi Rahim Allah
Mannella mini o alayka to be the mighty he abroad to Holy Allah He Shakira Minetta who
Imam Shafi says, Whosoever wrongs me
whoever offends me,
or liquor to be the mighty he
also means that whoever is indebted to me
abroad to whom
he says I absolve them of that offense for the sake of Allah who subhanaw taala
says I forgive them.
I forgive them purely for the sake of Allah who Subhanahu wa Taala
I forgive that person
in gratitude of the favor the near Amma the bounty the boon that Allahu Subhana Horta Allah has bestowed upon me
I forgive the person
out of gratitude to Allahu Subhana wa Tana for the near ama that Allahu Taala has bestowed upon me and therefore I'm able to overlook
the person's mistakes.
This is era No Oh welcome mean. Yo managers
are amo welcome, meaning the OMA Jazza
he says, The reason why I forgive is because I do not want to stand before Allahu Subhana wa Taala on the day of the IMA
to find out that someone's interest in
Jana is spending my forgiveness.
I want this to just listen to the statement of Imam Shafi Rahim Allah.
He says I don't want to stand before Allah on the day of piano, only to find out
that someone's entry into Jana is pending my forgiveness and therefore I forgive.
Therefore I forgive.
And just that last part he says,
oh, and so Mohammed and feel Almighty
as if he's saying that, how can I not forgive? How am I going to stand before Allah Jota on the DFT Yama finding that is someone's entry into Jana is spending my forgiveness when I am standing before Ultra far.
When I am standing in front of Allah far the one who is
often forgiving, most forgiving.
How is it possible that I cannot forgive if I worship and Allah who is a rock man Rahim?
How can I not find it in my heart to forgive? If I worship a Rahman Rahim, the one who is most Merciful
and the one who is continuously merciful.
And at the same time, this is Mohammed anfi Almighty he
How do I stand before Allahu Taala on the day of piano
having found out that someone's entry into Jana is spending my forgiveness if I am one of the omet is if I am of the ummah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the one who taught us to forgive
the one who taught us to forgive
this English saying that says
forgive the next person.
Forgive the next person, he may not deserve the pardon, but you deserve the peace.
Forgive the next person, he may not deserve the pardon, but you deserve the peace.
A person who musters the courage to forgive and forgive on a daily basis
he sleeps peacefully at night.
who harbors hatred and anger
he tosses and turns and cannot sleep
forgive the next person
forgive because I do not want to hold it in my heart whatever the person has done.
I do not want to carry that weight around.
And the example is
that if I hold a gloss I'm using a cloth you can use the cell phone as an example as well. But if I have if I hold a glass in my hand
I will not feel the feel its weight immediately.
However, the longer I hold the glass, the heavier it gets.
The longer I hold the glass the heavier it gets.
The weight of the glass did not change but rather the duration of holding the glass cause the glass to feel heavy.
So don't carry around
I may have to holds another person for whatever they have done.
For whatever they have done to not carry it around.
Free your heart
free or hot that is this an example that I that literally just came to mind.
That literally just came to mind and I need to mention this exam.
one day Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sitting in the masjid with some of the Sahaba
and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made a statement he says
there is a man about to enter
there is a man about to enter who is of a hello Jana
there is a man about to enter and he is from a hello Jana
and the Sahaba being in the very very quickly because I'm adding the story this as a long story I'm gonna shorten it very very I'm going to shorten inshallah Tana.
He says there's a man about to end the evil use of the eternal Jana. And so this person enters and the Sahaba looks at him. The person performs Salah and they see performs exactly the same way that they performed Salah and they were very cute. The moment Rasulullah saw made a statement. They were very cute and I mean this is this is a great statement is of absolute Jana. So they wanted to find out what makes this person so special.
And a man goes to this person's home. Long story short, he remains with this person for three days. And he sees but this person eats the way we eat he I mean he makes her other way we make salad everything that we do, he does what makes him so special.
And before the Sahaba lift the ostomy says
before you entered the masjid Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that you have the aloe Jana what makes you so special.
And this is what I cannot think of. I don't understand what what what I'm exactly the same as all of you.
And a few moments later, this is not this. This one thing that I can think of I don't know if it is there. But there's one thing that I can think of
just before I go and sleep at night,
I remove any enmity, any animosity that I may have for the next person. I didn't move in from my heart.
Whoever has harmed me whoever has done something to me who owes me I forgive that person before I go sleep at night I forgive that person.
The person may have a reason for doing or saying what he did.
we are offended by someone.
We are angry for someone for something that they may have done or may have said
not actually knowing the actual reason behind them saying that or doing that.
Another long story I'm going to try to shorten it insha Allah Allah Allah
is a Sahaba
he says while they were sitting in the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam
and amongst them was Abdullah ibn Amory, but alas.
He says they were sitting and Hussain, Radi Allahu Hussain, even Ali, the grandson of the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hussein passed by
and as he passed by you said as Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
And he says all of us responded. All of us responded with a comma Saddam Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh except one person Abdullah ibn aroma Eman, Amory, but alas, Abdullah even Amira,
Abdullah ibn Amara, he remained silent.
And once Hussein Radi Allahu unpassed
I'm not even allows, he responded.
And he said what Ali como Salam rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.
an AMA further said to them, he says,
Do you not wish that I inform you? Who is the most beloved of the people of Allah?
In fact, the English translation does not give justice to the Arabic
it says, Do you not wish it I inform you that who is the most beloved by Allahu Taala of everything in the heavens? And
do you not wish it I inform you of everything in the heavens and the earth? Who and what is most beloved to Almighty Allah subhana wa Diana
and they responded they say yes.
And he says, it is this person went past.
This person just passed by now is more beloved to Allah subhanaw taala than everything in the heavens and the earth.
But he says,
From Allah He
Mark can lemony what I can learn to whom on Josephine.
She says, however,
I have not spoken to him, nor has he spoken to me since the day of Safin.
It was a sad day in the history of the Muslims.
It was the day before Safin, it was the Muslims against the Quraysh the Muslims again the coup fall.
But the battle of Siffin was a battle between Muslims Muslims against Muslims.
Let me rephrase that. It was a battle between Sahaba it was Sahaba against Sahaba or the Allahu animoji Mehreen.
The Sahaba were human they made mistakes.
Things were missed the read messages were mis read and that is how the battle of Sofia took place. However,
Abdullah even notices since that particular day of Safin Merkel lemony wala column two
I never spoke to him no as he spoken to me however, I have a desire and a wish.
He said it will bring me much joy
if one of you could attempt to bring some sort of reconciliation between us
it will bring me much joy. If one of you could bring some sort of reconciliation amongst us.
I will say that at the Allahu and
he immediately gets up and he says now let's go now let's not wait
let's go now immediately. There is a lesson for each and every one of us
within our families
they may be brothers and sisters who are not speaking to each other
they may be cousins who are angry for each other for some wonderful things
and it's upon us as family instead of placing fuel in that fire this is what we normally do. So we choose sides
we choose sides
no no I'm going to side with that brother because for whatever reason
so now my entire family my side of the family we're all going to stick with that particular brother instead of me going and saying listen
you are brothers let's try to bring some sort of reconciliation amongst you
to be know that is
the only time a Muslim is allowed
to lie we know lying in Islam is not allowed
but the only time they are they up to three times in a Muslim is allowed are mentioned to when a Muslim is allowed to lie.
The one is
the husband who's the wife
and Nick let me let me let me let me explain this please allow me to explain this I'm not saying I'm not saying that it says that the husband can continuously lied to the wives. What this means is that
you know that sounds that sounds beaten off records as a cosmic SkinBetter feel certainly is a bit too much salt in the food in the food they salty
then we are allowed to freak we are allowed to then say
this food smell this food tastes SO wonderful Masha Allah I've never ever tasted a bit of butter biryani mint everyday Brianna's the phallic sutra
but you know, or the wife maybe asks us when do I look fat in this race?
Please lie down.
Allah Allah grant is understanding in sha Allah Tala.
the other occasion a Muslim is allowed to lie is
in trying to bring reconciliation amongst people amongst brothers amongst sisters amongst family members amongst friends I have I have that that loophole for lack of a better term to go and say my brother You know, you know what your brother said about you he said you this amazing person, you have a good heart match
you know what your your brother said about you, he says that you are very forgiving and just to bring that reconciliation amongst people.
That is important. Don't choose sides
don't throw fuel on the fire
but be the person that can putting reconciliation amongst people
be different to shaitan
even police or you know he is his workers
and they will come every at the end of every day they will come and report what they have achieved for today.
And every one of them are hoping to be recognized by a police who's the head of them.
So everyone will come okay I've you know, I got this person to do this and I got that person to do that etc etc etc.
And the one that will actually be recognized is the one that comes before he believes and says that today I was able to
separate two people.
Today, I was able to separate bring a separation between between two people. So let us be the opposite. Let us be different to be beliefs and let us be the cause that rebutted brings about reconciliation. Let me continue.
So he says Come let's go now. Let's not wait not tomorrow.
Tomorrow it may be too late.
Don't put it out for tomorrow. I'll wait for tomorrow. Okay shall live now. You know, I've find it in my heart to forgive. So I'll go tomorrow. Don't wait for tomorrow. Tomorrow that person may not be alive.
Go today go right now.
And so they go.
They go to Hussein.
They seek permission to enter and He grants him the permission to enter will say in a sitting down Radi Allahu Iran.
And Assad sits and he makes a space for armor. For for the layman. I'm going to sit
and as he does this Hussein pulls inclusive
of the labor and I'm going to remain standing.
And after a while for saying that at the Allahu and the makes that space for I'm wondering I'm gonna sits between the two of them.
We can imagine the
the tense at that moment in time.
Here are two brothers in Islam, to peep to two Sahaba.
They love each other, but because of a particular happening, they haven't spoken to each other.
So we can imagine how tense the situation must have been. No one knows what to do, what to say how to sit.
And Abu Saad makes a suggestion This is the sister Abdullah
says why don't you inform him of what you had told us? Why didn't you tell Hussein what you have told us?
And then he says yes, I can do that. And he says
that the most beloved to Allah Allahu Taala of everything in the heavens and the earth, the most beloved to Allahu Taala is who is Hussein
and Hussain Radi Allahu Allah, and he gets up and he looks at Abdullah and he says, if that is the case,
if that is the case, if that is what you believe that I am more beloved, to Allahu Taala than everything in the heavens and the earth, then why is it that you stood against me and my father at Safin?
Why is it that you stood against me and my father act at Safin
and it's a very long story I need to my time is up as well. I need to I need to shorten the story. But at the label, um, when he says, Do you know
one day my father I'm
he went to complain about me to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
you know, when we go when we go to the Imam or the Sheikh and we say
please speak to my son. He doesn't want to listen the clicks continuously on his phone.
It is just about the phone and if it's load shedding, he literally dies, etc, etc. My son is smiling and because he knows what I'm speaking about,
but I haven't even allows he goes to the NABI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says yeah rasool Allah speak to Abdullah speak to my son
he is continuously in Salah he spends his night in Salah and he spends his days fasting
look at the complain Thea Allah this is the father again to to to to deficit Allahu alayhi wa sallam saying that his son is he spends the entire day in Salah in CRM and they tell you nothing Salah
and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam calls up the line a system my son
have moderation within your life
fast and break your false false one day and eat one day.
They say in in in Katonah see does it take for unnecessary time for everything.
There is a time for enjoyment as well.
This isn't the last thing that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told me and this stuck with me.
Well out there, I'm Ron.
And he says, Be obedient to Your father armor.
Be obedient to Your father armor.
He says on the day, Josephine. I had no desire to enter the battle.
I had no desire to partake in the battle I did not want to.
But my father came to me.
My father came to me and commanded me to to partake.
He says in that moment, the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
At that moment, the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stuck with me
that I need to obey my father and it's for the fact that he isn't that reason only.
That I went he says however
I did not draw my soul. I may have been there on that day of suffering. I did not draw my SOJ
nor did I strike anyone
no did I shoot an arrow
says I'm may have been there but it was only the because my father commanded me to be the and I obeyed the command of my father because of because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told me what?
To obey Him. That is the only reason
with the result, they hugged each other and they forgave each other. The point is of this particular story.
Sometimes we don't do not know the reason behind someone doing something was saying something.
Then we remain angry for each other for years for 20 3040 years we remain angry.
And only after 40 years we find it okay but that is the reason why he did it.
That is perhaps the reason why I said that.
Why did Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam say make 70 excuses for him Mr. Glover. I need to end off
with so much that I want to say but I need to I need to end off insha Allah Who?
Maybe Yusuf alayhi salam
maybe Yusuf alayhi salam,
his brothers standing before him.
They threw him in a well
as a child, they threw him at the bottom of a well, the very brothers that was supposed to protect him. The very brothers that promised
they promised and they took in ours by the
farther that they are going to protect him,
threw him at the bottom of the wall. And with the result what happened? He was taken and sold in Egypt.
What did that cause that caused him to be imprisoned for how long peed the Icynene for another wrongfully was wrongfully imprisoned.
Build the Icynene for a number of years.
And everything that happened to him up until that moment in his life
was because of what his brothers did.
So the day when they finally stood before use of use of being the prime minister of Egypt at the time, use of being able to do whatever he wanted, if he wanted to retaliate, if he wanted to revenge if you want, he could do with him whatever he pleased.
They were in need. They came to the prime minister in need, in need of food, in need of water,
in need to still have things to survive. So they standing before him, and at that moment, he can say and do to them whatever he wants, because everything that happened in his life was because of that moment when they threw him in the world.
After all, that is Yusuf alayhi salam looks at his brothers and he says to them, letter three body.
Letter three body communium
