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

I begin by praising

00:00:02--> 00:00:27

Allah the Almighty, Allah Buddha Allah mean the Lord of all worlds the exalted the majestic, and I asked him to send his choices to blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam, his family members, his companions, and every single individual who treads on his path, the prophets path with a class with sincerity until the end of time.

00:00:29--> 00:00:37

At the very outset, I start off by reminding myself by enjoying upon myself and then all of you all gathered here for salatu. Juma

00:00:38--> 00:00:49

to adopt a life of Taqwa. And that is to instill the consciousness of your maker the consciousness of Allah subhanho wa taala. That is to be conscious of him.

00:00:51--> 00:01:05

And you must do this during every single second of your lives if you wish to attain victory, if you wish to attain success in this world as well as the next May Allah subhanahu wa taala make us all from the people of Taqwa and make him make us from the victorious and successful ones, Amin.

00:01:08--> 00:01:27

I'd like to start off by sharing a beautiful Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam hadith is recorded in the Book of Imam Muslim Rahim Allah and Abby Herrera Radi Allahu Anhu Annie Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam a call here the whole Jana Aqua Minh of either to whom Miss Liu have edited toI

00:01:29--> 00:01:35

Abu Huraira or the Allahu Anhu he reports that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reputed to have said

00:01:36--> 00:01:38

here the fool Janetta ACWA.

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

People will enter Jannah

00:01:48--> 00:01:55

and then he goes on to say, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, of either to whom Matthew of either did toil.

00:01:57--> 00:02:03

Their hearts will be like the hearts of birds.

00:02:04--> 00:02:18

So people whose hearts are like the hearts of birds will enter Jannah will enter paradise. So how do we understand these beautiful words of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam.

00:02:19--> 00:02:31

Now scholars have gone on to interpret you have Imam and NaVi Rahim Allah I'm sure the name brings a better yes we have real solid Hain sir compilation but Imam nawawi Rahim Allah

00:02:33--> 00:03:16

so He states one of the interpretations put forth is that their hearts this people who will go to Jannah their hearts will be light. Their hearts will be pure. Their hearts will be clean like that of the birds. You see the birds, they fly out in the morning and they fly back home in the evening. They hold no resentment towards anyone know anything. They hold no hatred. They hold no grudges, they hold no jealousy. They hold no envy in their little hearts. Their hearts are pure. Their hearts are clean.

00:03:17--> 00:03:21

Such a people will enter Jannah

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

so my dear brothers in Islam

00:03:27--> 00:03:40

we need to at this juncture reflect on these words of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam and we need to access our hearts. Today a lot of us we are concerned about our hearts. We are

00:03:42--> 00:04:30

some of us have cardiologists and heart specialists that we go to. And others we have trackers we have devices monitoring the health of our hearts. A lot of us we focus on cardio, why because we want to improve the we want to condition our heart we want to improve the health and maintain good health. The concern about our physical hearts but what about our spiritual hearts? Are we accessing our spiritual hearts? How light are they? How pure are they? And how clean are they? And my dear brothers in Islam don't gloss over this. Don't think oh, this is not an important topic. Trust me in sha Allah Tala by the end of the sermon. You will see

00:04:31--> 00:05:00

it evening I pray rubbish roughly solder us certainly Emery waffler Okada 10 melissani Fo holy that Allah puts the right words on my tongue, but you will see towards the end of the sermon, how important a topic it is. Now why I say this is because a lot of us we tend to focus on the rituals and not undermining the rituals. We have to do the rituals Most definitely. But we think oh, Salah, Zeca hij ombre, so the six fast

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

to show all the fasting on Monday, fasting on Thursday, fasting the days of the hijab, making it for Salah al Fajr, first row, so that will Juma and

00:05:11--> 00:05:16

these are the important things or the heart. Now I'm not so interested,

00:05:18--> 00:05:19

I'm not so interested

00:05:24--> 00:05:50

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he did not only focus on the outwardly many brothers in Islam, nor did he only focus on the inwardly. You see, unfortunately, there's a spectrum today, two extremes, some of us who are only on the outwardly side of things, and others who are only focused on the inwardly things. Those who focus only on the inwardly things go on to say, Who are you to judge me?

00:05:51--> 00:06:22

Who are you to judge me? Allah is the best of judges, I may not be praying, but my heart is clean. I may not fast but my heart is clean. And only Allah knows what is in my heart. Right. So this is one end of the spectrum. The other end of the spectrum we have those of us who are only focused on the outwardly aspects, and completely eliminate the heart from the equation. Let me share another Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to put things in perspective and the Prophet peace be upon him is reported to have said the narration goes along the lines of these words.

00:06:23--> 00:06:25

Allah were in the field just at the motiva.

00:06:27--> 00:06:40

These are not my words, my dear brothers in Islam. I am merely an instrument, a conduit, I'm just conveying the words of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, know that in the body, there is a piece of flesh.

00:06:42--> 00:06:46

The words of your Prophet sallallahu, ALA, he really was either solid,

00:06:47--> 00:06:54

solid hell Jessa dokolo. If that piece of flesh is good, if that piece of flesh is upright,

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

if that piece of flesh is sound,

00:06:59--> 00:07:32

solid, well Jessa do Kulu then the entire body is upright, the entire body is good, every limb in that body is good and healthy and sound. And obviously we're talking along along spiritual lines here. The Prophet goes on to say an hour in the sense, an hour in the future. So the Buddha either solo had Sahaja Docomo why the first said that. On the other hand, if that piece of flesh goes bad, if that piece of flesh is corrupt, if that piece of flesh is evil, if that piece of flesh is toxic, faster and faster than just

00:07:33--> 00:07:42

the entire body goes bad, every limp goes bad. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says Allah he'll

00:07:43--> 00:07:48

know that it is the heart know that it is the heart.

00:07:50--> 00:08:00

Allah says in the Noble Quran Yahoomail is our own Milu Oh,

00:08:01--> 00:08:53

Yo, man, I am fat Romain. Oh, Ben Hogan. On that day, ALLAH is talking about the day of the AMA yo Mala Yun Pharaoh Mal, your wealth will not benefit you your net worth will not benefit you your crypto portfolio will not benefit you. Your properties, your villas, your apartments, your vehicles, your watches, your assets, your money, your bank balance, your status, your job, your address will not benefit you. When I bet Own Your children will not benefit you. Yes, Ma sha Allah, they're all degree holders. They all educated you've done your bit, but they're not going to benefit you on that day. What will benefit you on that day, my dear brother, Ill at Allah has been Saleem

00:08:54--> 00:09:02

the one who comes with a clean heart called Salim a spiritually healthy heart.

00:09:04--> 00:09:13

The one who comes with that heart to Allah on that day. That is what will benefit the individual on that day may Allah Subhana Allah Allah bless us all with clean hearts. I mean

00:09:16--> 00:09:33

so many brothers in Islam, you have to understand that Shavon is tricky. He uses different traps to push us into maladies into sicknesses into into traps that riddle our heart with the diseases that riddle our heart with sicknesses.

00:09:34--> 00:09:36

Let me share another Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

the rasa lila Salam is reputed to have said Al Muslim men selama Natsu melissani warrior the the Muslim is the one from whose tongue and hand people are safe in the sense he does not harm anyone using his tongue. He does not harm anyone using his hands. This is the believer This is

00:10:00--> 00:10:17

The Muslim. In another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is reported to have said, mean Hosni Islam Ilmari Turku Humala Yanni from amongst the perfection and the completion of one's Islam is to leave that which does not concern him.

00:10:20--> 00:10:36

It is to leave that which does not concern you. But how many of us find this so difficult to do, to mind our own businesses, to stop poking our noses into the affairs of others?

00:10:37--> 00:10:39

You find it extremely difficult to do.

00:10:43--> 00:10:44

Many brothers in Islam

00:10:52--> 00:11:26

why I started off by saying that we have a spectrum and we have those of us who are on one end and others who on the other end is because a lot of us we strive hard to do good deeds. We strive hard, very hard. And think about it reflect for a moment. You're here, smack in the middle of the day for salatu. Juma for what ask yourself why are you here? You're here to obviously please Allah subhanho wa Taala you are here to avoid sin. Because if you don't pray Serato Juma even you're able to then you're sinning, right?

00:11:28--> 00:11:48

You're doing all of this to please Allah and to enter Jana. Why are you coming for Salah prefecture to please Allah and to eventually intergeneric Why are you going on umbra? Why are you going on hydro spending your money and going all the way there to please Allah to go to Jana? Why are you giving Zika from your hard earned money?

00:11:50--> 00:11:54

Why? Because you want to please Allah, you want to earn his pleasure, you want to enter Jannah.

00:11:58--> 00:12:19

But do you know my dear brothers in Islam along with doing all of that you must ensure you must ensure that you protect your tongue that you protect your heart? Because otherwise it's going to become like a leaking bucket. You know what the analogy of a leaking bucket is? Let's say you have a bucket, a big bucket

00:12:21--> 00:13:08

and you're walking kilometres you're walking miles to get water. Your walk now a very long distance, let's say five or 10 kilometres with a bucket, and you're filled the bucket to take water back home. Now you have to walk back another five to 10 kilometres. Would it make sense to take a bucket with holes? Would any one of us take a bucket with holes? Would it make sense it won't make sense, right? Because by the time you walk back, you would have lost all the water that you went for. So similarly, my dear brothers in Islam, along with doing all these good deeds, if you do not protect your tongue, if you do not protect your heart, on the day of Yama, it's going to be a very

00:13:08--> 00:13:11

unfortunate scene that will unravel.

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

There are a hadith to the effect, where individuals will stand in front of Allah azza wa jal expect him to see their good deeds. They have spent so much for the sake of Allah. They've done so much for the sake of Allah and they're expecting to be handsomely rewarded by Allah azza wa jal.

00:13:31--> 00:13:52

And yes, they will see the mountains of good deeds, eventually transforming into mountains of sins. Why? Because they indulged in the veba, the back bit about others, backbiting NEMA, caring tales about others, their hearts, they thought bad about others.

00:13:54--> 00:14:33

So you have to understand the gravity of backbiting. When you backbite about someone libre, you know and you know what is backbiting? Some of us we don't know what is backbiting? We don't know what is backbiting? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said hadith is in the book of Imam Muslim. The Prophet asks the Companions this very same question. All my companions, Brunello Ziva, do you know what the Rebbe is? Do you know what Backbiting is? And they all responded Allahu wa rasuluh who Allah, Allah and His Messenger know best. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam defined riba define the backbiting and Listen to me attentively the Prophet said, Vic Ruka a

00:14:33--> 00:14:52

haka. Bhima yatra. To to say something about your brother, or about your sister, in his or her absence, something that he or she would dislike to hear about themselves. This is libre, this is backbiting.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

So ask yourself, my dear brother, my dear sister, how many of us indulge in this on a daily basis?

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

sis unfortunately.

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

And interestingly the Sahaba then go on to say, theta alpha writer in Canary aseema upon ya rasool Allah, what if that that negative thing that I'm saying about my brother is is there in him? The Prophet sallahu alayhi wa sallam then says, if that is actually found in him, okay, let's say you're talking about your brother in his absence, something negatively about him. Look at the words of the Prophet Hadith in the book of Numbers, and the Prophet says, if that negative thing that you mentioned, was actually there, then that is a Riba. On the other hand, if it is not there, most of the time we backbite about others. You know, very, very carelessly, you know, I heard this about so

00:15:49--> 00:15:59

and so. I heard this about so and so. Or, you know, what his dealings are like this? Oh, you know, he's running around in this because of this.

00:16:01--> 00:16:06

Or, you know, he's involved in this. He's involved in that. You know, we don't even hesitate, we don't bat an eyelid.

00:16:08--> 00:16:18

We talk about other people's families, other people's businesses, other people's marriages, other people's children, almost as if we are lily white.

00:16:20--> 00:16:26

Don't we? Aren't we ashamed of ourselves? Are we saints? Are we angels to do this?

00:16:29--> 00:16:54

And look at the words of the Prophet. He says if you said something negative about your brother in his absence, and if that was actually true, then that is Riba. On the other hand, if it is alive, then that is even worse than the V but it is Bhutan. It is oppression. The Riba in and of itself is is oppression, this is a greater form of oppression, you have lined

00:16:56--> 00:16:59

up my dear brothers in Islam, you have to take it very seriously.

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

You see, if you fall short with regards to one of your rights that you have to fulfill with regards to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah is the most forgiving I've spoke about this so many times, you know, during this last month of Ramadan in Allah has a four in the MaHA Rahim Allah is Most forgiving, Most Merciful, He will forgive you. But you see when you backbite about someone, the forgiveness of Allah, remember this mark my words is hinged.

00:17:28--> 00:17:39

On to the fact that you have usurped the rights of your brother. You have attacked his honor. Now what did He forgives you? You're not going to be forgiven?

00:17:40--> 00:17:42

Do we really need this?

00:17:43--> 00:17:52

Do we really need this? Let's say if you spoke negatively about someone in his absence now you have to go to him and tell him brother I did this forgive me.

00:17:53--> 00:17:56

How many of us we are on our high horses right.

00:17:58--> 00:18:13

How many of us can swallow our egos and now go and do it Shatta Wale Let us meet your brother's Shadow Moon let us know what is the point now my question to you what is the point of you doing good deeds at this juncture, when you are not going to be forgiven by ALLAH SubhanA wa what is the point?

00:18:16--> 00:18:22

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was once walking by two grapes.

00:18:23--> 00:18:26

It's a very scary Hadith, the prophet

00:18:27--> 00:19:08

the color of his face, Abu Huraira or the Allahu minarets, we were walking with the Prophet Salah al Islam when he passed by two Crips and suddenly we saw the color of the face of the Prophet changing until it was white like the sleeve of his shirt. So then they all ask, what is the what is the matter what is wrong? The Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said, you follow if you cannot hear what I can hear. And then they ask what is it yeah rasool Allah, the Prophet sallallaahu Salam Then said the two individuals who are in this grave are being severely punished. And then the Prophet said, one of them used to harm people with his tongue used to carry gossip about others. So he's being

00:19:08--> 00:19:10

severely punished by Allah azza wa jal.

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

Do you see this tongue, no bones, it moves around very easily. It can make a person it can break a person. You have to mark your words, my dear brothers in Islam just because it is easy to speak. You don't utter whatever comes to your mind and rolls off your tongue. You have to be extremely extremely careful. Because from your deeds being destroyed, to you being punished in the grave to you standing in front of Allah and losing all your deeds to not entering Jana. Chef, where did you get that from? Again, the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hadith has recorded the book of Imam Al Bukhari and Imam Muslim Rahim Allah and authentic hadith. And Jose Ferrara, the

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

Allahu Anhu call call and Nabi usando Allahu alayhi wa sallam la yo

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

Pool Janata nama

00:20:05--> 00:20:09

the tail bearer will not enter paradise.

00:20:11--> 00:20:21

The one who gossips will not enter Paradise, clear cut words of the Prophet sallallahu it really was said Do you really want to risk your Jana?

00:20:22--> 00:20:28

For this? Is it is it that addictive? Is it that enjoyable? Ask yourself Is it really worth it?

00:20:32--> 00:20:45

How many times we are at a function because if about others, we're hanging out with our friends because if about others and we really don't care, because if about the righteous people because if about scholars because if about our relatives, we gossip about family,

00:20:46--> 00:20:52

we have never met the individual Allahu Akbar. We have never met the individual and because if about that individual

00:20:58--> 00:20:59

I'd like to share another Hadith.

00:21:01--> 00:21:03

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his report said,

00:21:04--> 00:21:49

when I was taken on my night journey, during his run, Miraj, I passed by a people who had metal hooks in their hands. They had, you know, I'm holding this I can't demonstrate they had metal hooks on their hands, you know, iron hooks, and they were using those hooks to claw at their faces and their necks. You know, they were inflicting the punishment upon themselves. They had metal hooks, you know, these iron hooks, and they were clawing at their faces and their necks. The Prophet was shocked and he asks Gibreel Krishna to Salam Gibreel Who are these individuals who are these people? And Gibreel and Islam was salam went on to say these are the ones

00:21:51--> 00:22:02

these are the ones who eat the flesh of people and attack their honor. You know, this example of eating the flesh of others, it is backbiting.

00:22:04--> 00:22:05

It is backbiting

00:22:06--> 00:22:27

it Akula documen luck Murthy he might Allah says in the Quran. Backbiting is like eating the flesh of your dead brother, brotherhood, any one of you do it with any one of you do it. If your friend has passed away, would you go to his funeral and start eating his flesh? Would you cut flesh off of him and eat him or be cannibals? Backbiting is just that exactly that.

00:22:30--> 00:22:31

So my dear brothers in Islam,

00:22:32--> 00:22:37

you have to you have to be extremely careful about this.

00:22:38--> 00:22:46

Otherwise, you're going to end up spoiling your good deeds. And before I conclude, I want to touch on one more thing.

00:22:49--> 00:22:57

So we just spoke about avoiding backbiting, okay? What if you are in a gathering?

00:22:58--> 00:23:01

Listen to me attentively. You are in a gathering

00:23:03--> 00:23:08

and someone is backbiting but someone else.

00:23:09--> 00:23:17

Let's say for the sake of clarity, Mr. A, Mr. B and Mr. C are friends. Okay.

00:23:20--> 00:23:29

Mr. A and Mr. B are in a gathering where someone or some people are backbiting about Mr. C.

00:23:30--> 00:23:34

Now, what is the responsibility of Mr. A and Mr. B?

00:23:36--> 00:24:04

Again, there are two extremes. One is there are those of us who would indulge in the backbiting you know, they say throwing or putting they add fuel to the fire. They like to you know, make the all juicy, you know, the juicy gossip that like fortunately men also, you know, tend to it used to be something that used to be I'm not trying to be I'm not you know, stereotyping, but now all genders basically they they indulgent

00:24:05--> 00:24:34

So, one extreme is there, you indulge in the gossip, and you enable the gossip. The other extreme is to you know, you take minding your own business to the next level. And you know, you you don't you don't add fuel, nor do you defend your friend. So Islamically What are you supposed to do? What is your responsibility? That's the right question. The responsibility My dear brother, my dear sister is to defend your brother.

00:24:35--> 00:24:39

And by the way, it is an obligation. It is an obligation

00:24:40--> 00:24:42

to defend your brother

00:24:46--> 00:24:54

Abu Huraira are the Allahu Anhu he reports that once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he sent her Omar Radi Allahu Anhu to collect Zakah

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

the hadith is the book of Imam Muslim Rahim Allah

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

Rama Radi Allahu Anhu was sent to collect the car. So, he goes now to collect the car. And then he comes back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam and he says he informs the Prophet generation goes along the lines of these words, three individuals have refused to pay.

00:25:20--> 00:25:21

There's a guy

00:25:23--> 00:25:40

and he mentioned their names Ebola Jamil Khalid Ibn Al Walid Roddy, Allah one, and Al Abbas the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa and he was three individuals have refused to pay their as a car from are they allowed to purchase the proper solution?

00:25:41--> 00:25:48

Immediately the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says with regards to even a Jamil

00:25:50--> 00:26:03

he does not want to pay his car. He was poor and Allah made him rich. So the Prophet was clearly stating what had happened

00:26:05--> 00:26:45

with regards to highly the banal Walid Yeah, Omar, you are being unjust to Holly drop the Allahu Anhu for four, he has reserved you to understand how the middle when he was a warrior, so he had reserved or he has reserved all of his armor and all of his weapons for the sake of Allah. So, there is no as the cardio on him, he has made made work of everything that he has for the sake of Allah in other words, in the in terms of weapons and armor, you understand? So, there is a way to calculate the car if you have a certain amount of wealth and if certain amount of assets and things like that there are certain categories where as the car will become applicable. But with regards to Harley

00:26:45--> 00:27:31

Davidson Waleed, whatever he has, in terms of his armor, in terms of perhaps his horses, in terms of his weapons, everything has been pledged for the sake of Allah. So there is no cerca de weapon Khalid Ibn Al Walid. And as for Al Abbas, I am responsible for the Zika of an abbess. Now the point that I want to highlight here is with regards to Khalid Ibn Al Walid, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam defended Khalid Ibn Al Waleed or the Allah one. So similarly, my dear brothers in Islam, if you are in a gathering, where someone is attacking the honor of your brother, the believer, the Muslim, you must defend his honor, you must put a stop, and this is part of a Lamborghini maruf on

00:27:31--> 00:27:42

the honeymoon car as well and joining good and forbidding evil, you must stop the backbiting you must tell your friends, you must tell the gathering. Let us be aware and stop backbiting about others.

00:27:43--> 00:28:08

Some of us you we even say You know, I don't want to backbite and then we go on to backbite. I don't want to say this, you know? Or don't tell anyone, okay? Don't tell anyone. And then we tell that person we go to another category. Don't tell anyone. Yeah, don't tell anyone. I heard this. And this about so and so. And this is exactly carrying tails and a man. This is the definition of carrying tails you're carrying deals all over the place.

00:28:10--> 00:28:23

So therefore, my dear brothers in Islam as believers, as believers that are stay away from this, that is God, our tongues, the pious people of the past would actually put rocks, tables in their mouth.

00:28:24--> 00:28:27

To avoid unnecessarily speaking.

00:28:31--> 00:28:55

pious people of the past would actually ask us every single word that will come out of their mouths did this word that came out of my mouth that rolled off my tongue? Am I going to earn the pleasure of Allah through it? Or am I going to anger him through it? Have we done that kind of an audit? Have we done that kind of an assessment? Every word that comes out? This word? Is it pleasing to Allah? Is it displeasing to Allah azza wa jal

00:28:56--> 00:29:41

because you have to bear in mind, my dear brothers in Islam, today, we have devices, you know, this thing that is clipped on me, I think it can record. I think, if I'm not mistaken, I have about 256 GB of storage here. And the files are very small. It can record for hours on end what I'm saying. And it has technology, to you know, the gaps to remove the gaps and do all of that stuff. So what I'm trying to highlight here is that we man, we have come up with technology to capture video 4k 8k You have all this technology. So you think Allah does not have the technology to capture every single word that you utter. Every single word is on record. Every single statement of yours is

00:29:41--> 00:29:54

clearly recorded, you will not be able to dispute it on the day of theosophy Kitabi Mubin. So remember that when you stand in front of Allah azza wa jal, every statement of yours you will be taken to account

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

so I hope in the few minutes that I had with you all I instilled

00:30:00--> 00:30:26

The importance of mining your tongue of working towards a pure heart because if you do not mind your tongue, this will lead to your heart becoming toxic. You thinking bad about others you thinking negatively about others you thinking toxic toxic thoughts about others, you looking down upon others. So, if this continues, your heart is not going to become light, like the heart of a bird.

00:30:28--> 00:31:11

Like the first Hadith that I shared with you all the people who will enter Jannah and their hearts are going to be like the hearts of birds. So I conclude by sincerely praying that Allah subhanahu wa taala helps each and every one of us to transform our hearts to become pure and light hearted. Where we do not hold grudges against others. We do not hold envy against others. Yeah, Allah help us to purify our hearts help us to eliminate toxic elements from our hearts. Help us to think good thoughts about others Yeah, Allah help us to give the benefit of doubt to others. Yeah, Allah help us to make excuses for others. Yeah, Allah help us to defend the rights the honor of our brothers

00:31:11--> 00:31:51

and sisters. Yeah, Allah help us to stay away from this pit of backbiting. Help us to stay away from this pit of minima carrying tales that Allah do not deprive us Yama. Do not deprive of deprive us of Jannah because of backbiting. Do not destroy our good deeds but help us to stay away so that our deeds are not destroyed through backbiting. Yeah, Allah. Allah help us to guard our tongues help us to purify our hearts, bless us with polluted Salim with pure light and clean hearts. And just as how you united us here for this sermon, united in the beautiful and lofty gardens of Jana. the companionship of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam. I mean I'm
