We always begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala who is our Creator sustainer nourish, protect, and cure. We ask Allah subhana wa tada to Chava his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of

00:00:59--> 00:01:06

their respective brothers and sisters in Islam. I actually prepared something else to touch on for tonight.

00:01:08--> 00:01:36

But I really can't bring myself to touch on that topic, due to the horrifying images that keep coming in. And the news in regard to Gaza Allahu Akbar. So I dedicate tonight's hearts off for the people of Gaza once again, and inshallah I wish to touch on depth. And I will also touch on the topic I prepared for tonight, which is the cover and kibble. In other words, arrogance and pride.

00:01:38--> 00:02:25

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, as we all know, for the past 234 days, there has been missiles raining down on waza we live in cruel times, indeed, Allahu Akbar. And I keep saying this, these are all signs towards the day of karma children, innocent people are being massacred, being butchered and being killed. Without the death toll just keeps increasing every single Allahu Akbar and the media is blinding us is blinding us by showing dazzling games of football and cricket so that we forget what's happening on that side of the world. We are fasting and as well as will be accepted by Allah Subhana Allah do our is the strongest weapon that we have. Let us raise our hands,

00:02:26--> 00:03:06

especially when we wake up for so who when we wake up at tahajjud when we are in Korea, moonlight and pray for them, it has used this powerful weapon that are lost behind them who are the Allah has blessed us with to pray for the people of Gaza to pray for the Muslim oma at large that Allah subhana wa Taala lives alleviate the sufferings of the Muslim Ummah and there are losses the high net worth Allah reward them for that great suffering that they are going through and there are losses behind them with Allah give them the highest damages in Jenna, media, brothers and sisters in Islam, let us prepare for death. Death is inevitable death is upon us. None of us can guarantee for

00:03:06--> 00:03:49

how long we are going to live. And that I would say is the biggest heart softener if we act upon the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, where he is reported to have stated x 00 Javi me Let that make excessive remembrance of the destroyer of pleasures make excessive remembrance of the Terminator of pleasures for the movie, remember that this dunia the fake wails of pleasure that this dunya adorns herself with will all vanish away. It's just a dream made your brothers and sisters in Islam, this worldly life is nothing we have been created for our Hara, we have been created for the eternal life of the Hereafter, that is remember death often it has turned to Allah Subhana Allah let

00:03:49--> 00:04:15

us read ourselves from all evil qualities, all of the negative qualities that we have been touching on hamdulillah for the past few days, and also in regard to this particular quality that I wish to touch tonight. It is a quality that even if a mustard seed of it were to be in an individual's heart, he will be deprived from entering gender and that is the evil quality of kibber and Sokka both

00:04:17--> 00:04:59

otherwise translated as pride and arrogance. If this quality is hidden within an individual's heart, and if he does not manifest it out, then it is known as kibble it is known as kibber it is known as pride, but the minute it manifests itself on an individual's limbs then it is known as the cup bowl and then scholars translate it as arrogance. There are many hobbies and many Quran is to state that Allah subhana wa Taala hates those who are proud. And the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that a person has pride in his heart along the lines of these words, he will never be able to enter Jannah Allahu Akbar.

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

This evil quality basically locks the dose of genda restricting access for that individual to enter agenda. May Allah subhanho wa Taala cleanse our hearts from the evil quality. And the best story to touch on to highlight the, the badness of that quality is the story of beliefs, the story of a police for if you were to, if you were to recall the story of a police What was the reason for him to be thrown out of the high post and the highest station he was enjoying, and for him to become the occurs devil Allahu Akbar. Let's go to the beginning of creation. Many, many moons ago, long time before mankind there was the creation known as jinn. And even before the creation of jinn, there was

00:05:48--> 00:06:39

a creation known as been, I know it might sound funny, but before jinn, there was a creation known as been and some scholars also say there was a creation named as Hindu hain and Ben Subin used to populate the world and they became rebellious and Allah subhana wa Tada. This is mentioned in albida one Nehemiah of Mr. Rahim Allah. When this creation known as being became rebellious, Allah the Almighty sent down armies of jinn, and at the head of the army was none other than a police who was also known as Isaiah zil. According to some of the scholars rahima Humala, so as as in aka Billy's was the head of the army of jinn. And they came down and they chased away that creation known as bin

00:06:39--> 00:07:22

and they populated the world. After which after some time, they too became rebellious in defiance of the commandments of a loss of the high net worth Allah, to which Allah the Almighty sent down melodica Allahu Akbar, to contain the situation and the melodica came down and chased away the gin too far remote islands and that is why even now we find Gina populating and dwelling in far away remote islands, and they took a beliefs as captive and took him up to the heavens. Now he believes the minute he went up, he was from the gym is not from the melodica is from the jinn, as Allah subhanho wa Taala states in the ayah, which we will discuss soon in sha Allah. He went up to the

00:07:22--> 00:08:02

heavens and became a pious worship our philosophy behind Edward Island, he started to seek knowledge, he started to worship of us behind him who was either ardently fervently and sincerely and he enjoyed a high status Allahu Akbar, Allah the Almighty blessed him with the highest status amongst the melodica. And all of this was fine until a last behind them with Allah and nouns, the creation of men, Allahu Akbar, and when Allah the Almighty created man, scholars also mentioned when man was created, and before life was given to man, in other words, as Emmaline salat wa salam, when basically when he was

00:08:03--> 00:08:52

lying down like a statue, because before life was given to him, he believes now goes around by admiring his salatu salam, and observes the creation of other Molyneux. So that was set up because he notices that as a Miley Cyrus was Salam has been created out of clay, and he knows that he has been created out of fire. So he, this kibble started to sprout in his heart, if you will, but it didn't manifest yet, but it started to sprout, he started to think you know, I am made of fire. I am a very pious worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So why has Allah the Almighty now created this creation out of clay? So out of curiosity, he goes by other money, so that was the lamb and taps him

00:08:52--> 00:09:12

on his belly, and you know, a hollow sound emitted and the minute he heard that hollow sound, he came to a conclusion. Oh, he is hollow inside there, it will be easy for me to sway him this way. And that way, Allahu Akbar. These are the evil results of pride. Now pride started to sprout in his heart.

00:09:14--> 00:09:54

Then Allah subhanahu wa taala gave life to us in Malaysia salat wa salam, and Allah the Almighty commanded the melodica. As as he also was part of them at that time, but even though he is not from the melodica, he is from the jinn, Allah the Almighty commanded all of them to make such a dare to prostrate to other Molyneux salat wa salam. And this frustration many brothers and sisters in Islam was not a prostration of worship, but rather a frustration of honor. Allah the Almighty wanted to show the melodica and the other creations that in regard to the honor and the status given to Adam Island is Salatu was Salam. And that is why Allah the Almighty ordered them to prostrate Allahu

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

Allah and Allah knows best in regard to why they were commanded to prostrate. This is the explanation of the scholars.

00:10:01--> 00:10:03

Allah the Almighty mentioned that the Nobel for an was a

00:10:07--> 00:10:08

judo

00:10:11--> 00:10:26

and remember when we commanded when we asked the angels to make sajida what is cool not in melodica is to do the other to make sense to add money salatu salam first Angelou in

00:10:28--> 00:10:41

many ways, all of them make made such that made prostration to add Maliki salatu salam, except he believes he believes did not make prostration faster Jesu

00:10:46--> 00:11:08

caffine he refused, he refused to make sajida and pride came about he he his corn was stuck. But what can I mean he'll Katherine and he became of those who rejected who have the caffeine who rejected the command of a loss of a high net worth either Allahu Akbar. And then Allah the Almighty asks, he believes

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

Judah is

00:11:13--> 00:11:19

what is stopping you what stopped you from prostrating when I commanded you to do so?

00:11:23--> 00:11:29

He says I am better than him. He believes now he says Why should I prostrate? I am better than him.

00:11:36--> 00:12:21

You created me out of fire. Yeah, Allah and you created him out of clay. Clay is a low thing. I made a fire Allahu Akbar. So this you see, having self confidence is good. But then that self confidence should, I would say progress, rather progress towards becoming a superiority complex, where you think that you are on top of, I don't know cloud nine, perhaps and you look at everyone else as if they are assets. This is how the quality of pride comes about in an individual, especially when an individual has knowledge. Pride manifests its self in a way that you start looking down at people. You look at people with that condescending look, you look at them, you scan them, Allahu Akbar, this

00:12:21--> 00:12:28

is the evil of pride. Because when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about right the the Sahaba one night I

00:12:29--> 00:13:10

asked him Yasuda, the What about those? The narration goes along the lines of these words. What about those who like to dress beautiful he liked to dress well. Then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam clarifies that it is not about dressing well in Allah jahmene Allah the Almighty is beautiful. He is beautiful and he loves beauty Allahu Akbar. But Raja pride is to reject the truth and also to look at people with contempt. Look at people with hate Allahu Akbar. So scholars mentioned that there are two cures, I won't take long queues in regard to curing yourself from price. One cure is a knowledge based cure, and the other cure is an action based cure. I won't delve

00:13:10--> 00:13:52

into them, but I will mention them. The knowledge based cure divides itself into two basically it is upon us to recognize ourselves self recognition, and to remember that we came from nothing Allahu Akbar, we were created from a congealed drop of sperm, a mixture of sperm Allahu Akbar, this is where we come from today. We, you know, Allah, the Almighty has blessed us with all of these faculties and we think high and mighty of ourselves. Let us go back to our roots, we came from nothing. If we serve, if we recognize ourselves, then we will put down ourselves that is number one. And the other is to recognize a loss behind that was either and to acknowledge that greatness is for

00:13:52--> 00:14:37

Allah, the Almighty Allah but greatness is for Allah, the Almighty, Allah the Almighty is the greatest, the most powerful, and we are weakling creations of Allah subhanho wa Taala that is in regard to the knowledge base cure, and the action based cure is to humiliate yourself and to humble yourself in with the people in such a way that at the beginning, it may seem unnatural to you, because we suffer from the disease of Kibera of try. So you may feel uncomfortable, but gradually it will become something natural. We have to try and be humble with the people not to think that you know he must come and give salams to me, or he must make way for me or he must think my opinion has

00:14:37--> 00:14:59

to reign over others. Maybe at a board conference, I won't listen to anybody else. My opinion has to reign over here. All of these qualities are of pride. We need to purge our hearts completely from all of those evil qualities. May Allah the Almighty forgive all of our sins, and mainly the almighty help us to purify and cleanse our hearts. Many the almighty accept good deeds and may

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

He the almighty alleviate the sufferings of this coma. Yeah, Allah May he may he the almighty forgive our sins, and may He forgive the sins of our brethren in Gaza. Many accept the Shahada And grant them the highest damages in gender and many alleviate their sufferings. May He bless them and make you feel their hearts with strong unwavering patience so that they be victorious in these trials that they have been put through, and for that may be granted the highest damages in gender and may unite us to in the goddess of gender with our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
