00:01:19--> 00:01:33

You slept like Omaha Malakal. moil feed like one Mizuno back home when you're there in our solar who fell for the first fold foes and all the

00:01:35--> 00:01:57

praise be to Allah. Indeed, To Him belongs all praise and gratitude. We praise Him, we seek His help forgiveness and guidance and mercy. We seek refuge in Allah from our bad deeds as we seek his refuge and protection from the bad insiders. No, then one who is guided by Allah.

00:01:59--> 00:02:32

They are the ones who are truly guided, one who is left to go astray, they will not find a guide or a protector or a helper after that. And I bear witness that there is no God, but Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them. He has no partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him is his slave and messenger. Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran instructed Zab or you who believe the ones who call yourself faithful,

00:02:34--> 00:02:53

be mindful of Allah. Be always aware and conscious of Allah. And when you speak, speak, speak truthfully. While Kulu cow will and Sadie that makes your your speech and your words studied, from said

00:02:54--> 00:03:12

really means to block. A dam for example is a set but it also has the meaning of being straight and being truthful. Not this kind of speech, playing games with people, be honest, be truthful.

00:03:14--> 00:03:15

All and sadita

00:03:16--> 00:03:25

your slash lack of armella come there that Allah will make good all your situation. In other words, you never need to lie to make your situation good.

00:03:26--> 00:03:46

It will lead to the opposite. But if you're truthful, while you're mindful of Allah, your Slocombe, Atma Allah calm or your fella comes in all back home and he will forgive you your sins. Well, no UTI la hora Sula, who forgot the Thirza foes and Alina, whoever obey Allah obeys Allah obeys His messenger.

00:03:48--> 00:04:05

They have indeed achieved the greatest of trials. That is our objective, isn't it brothers and sisters, my reminder to us all young and old. This is a reminder for all of us. It is about truthfulness. In contrast to lying.

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

Truthfulness

00:04:10--> 00:04:11

is called Siddiq.

00:04:12--> 00:04:17

All prophets who are our example from the first or last

00:04:19--> 00:04:27

were truthful people were truthful people. Had they even told one lie, no follows would have listened to them.

00:04:29--> 00:04:51

Bacala to Allah was chlorophyl kita be able to draw him in who can now sit deep on Nabi look Allah to Allah was chlorophyll kita be the race in now who can say the con Nabi

00:04:52--> 00:04:55

so make mentioned remember in the book,

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

Ibrahim indeed he was

00:05:00--> 00:05:13

was a Truthful Prophet. Same for Idris and same for all Prophets is not limited to just them prophesy Salam himself before double WA is known as Saudi Kula mean

00:05:14--> 00:05:18

that truthful and trustworthy is not not serve other than sisters.

00:05:20--> 00:05:47

Notice so that is so sad equal Amin, this truthfulness in other words, truthfulness, in other words, is a quality that can come before even revelation. So the ACSF for example, now, all you know we Yes, yes, we can also rationalize and come to morality and truthfulness. In other words, we don't need God.

00:05:49--> 00:06:14

They are partly wrong and partly right. Shake down the rear face and say of course you're right. Yes, you can. You can come to truthfulness and some sense of morality, and agree that truthfulness is good. Why? Your problem is the only reason you rationalize that is because Allah put it in your fitrah. You forgot that bit. You didn't come to that conclusion, Allah made you that way.

00:06:16--> 00:06:20

So in your realizing morality, you have just recognized God.

00:06:21--> 00:06:48

The second problem that they have, is that real atheists are those who say we can just accidentally by evolution, accidentally the genes did this, there was no meaning purpose. There is no morality, there's no truthfulness, there's no good there's no bad in the animal world and the same for us. Well, then how can you then contradict and say, we can have a morality as well, there's a contradiction.

00:06:49--> 00:06:53

There's a contradiction in the way they live, which should be like animals.

00:06:54--> 00:07:45

We shouldn't be like animals, killing just for and going for food and going for progeny. But they don't live like that. So to be true to their atheism, there should be no morality, there is no reason for them to argue their sense of morality. And before you go to evolution coming out, coming out, through evolutionary process accidentally, they haven't answered the whole issue of creation, before evolution starts. It's got to start on something, not on nothing, nothing comes out of nothing. Only Allah created and then anything can happen. Anyway, but the fitrah is there. So by fitrah people of any religion of no religion, can they be truthful? Yes, they can be, but he's all

00:07:45--> 00:07:59

from Allah. And therefore believers who believe in Allah, their level of truthfulness should be of a higher level, should it not brother and sisters. Why is it that ours is of a lower level?

00:08:01--> 00:08:25

You know exactly what I'm talking about. And if you don't just travel to any Muslim country, and you know exactly what I'm talking about what happened? What happened here and here, that we ourselves, don't know who is telling the truth. When we go to our Muslim lands, and we believe when we come back, the most of them are lying, actually.

00:08:26--> 00:08:35

Something has gone seriously wrong with us. Yeah, we cry about people burning the Quran. We burned the Quran before they burnt it.

00:08:37--> 00:08:38

We burn the Quran.

00:08:39--> 00:08:41

We don't follow anything from the Quran.

00:08:42--> 00:08:54

The Quran is telling us with belief, and consciousness and mindfulness of Allah comes truthfulness. Where did that go? Where did that go? Truthfulness

00:08:55--> 00:09:04

in all walks of life. So it begins at home. They say no brother and sisters, and I don't have to go far to the Muslim world to that I'm talking about you and me.

00:09:05--> 00:09:10

It means being truthful between husband and wife and not lying. Nowadays, we have these

00:09:12--> 00:09:17

the husband hides his life from his wife and she hides it from him. Isn't that so?

00:09:18--> 00:09:25

And there she piccies more by lopen go through his messages. There'll be war and vice versa.

00:09:27--> 00:09:31

But my wife can pick my mobile app anytime and go through it. And she does actually and I can pick this up.

00:09:33--> 00:09:35

Yeah, whatever you got to hide.

00:09:36--> 00:09:59

Whatever you got to hide. This helps you to hide this. What's going on? Truthfulness begins at home, between husband and wife. And between parents and children. If you want your children to be truthful, then you have to exemplify it rather than just shouting it to them to be truthful to you. If you are lying yourself, don't expect your children to be truthful. And I say to children,

00:10:00--> 00:10:09

Just because your parents are lying, don't think that you automatically have to be liars as well. Because you have to stand as a Muslim before Allah yourself.

00:10:10--> 00:10:14

You do. Can parents lie? Hosts? They do?

00:10:15--> 00:10:26

Of course they do. Can children correct them? Of course they can. That is how you do it. Oh, mom, dad. That's not true. That's not what happened.

00:10:27--> 00:10:30

Yeah, but but with love and respect.

00:10:31--> 00:10:35

Not by calling your mom or dad a liar, because we can't perhaps you got it wrong.

00:10:36--> 00:10:44

As a child you misunderstood. Perhaps it was the truth. However, why I'm saying it is that the family, young and old,

00:10:45--> 00:11:05

should stand their ground. If the parent tells the child to lie, I tell you, Allah, His Messenger tell you to speak the truth. Do not disobey Allah and His Messenger in obedience to your parents. All the parents are jumping up and down, saying, Oh, he's got our children against us now know

00:11:06--> 00:11:45

if that's your stance, they need to be they need to take a stand. The stand is Islam. Allah and His Messenger come first. It's not nostril brother and sisters. So it starts at home. And I mentioned it because we live in a world full of falsity allies is not not case. Especially when social media has arrived. Everybody is lying, lying left, right and center lying in every tick tock video lying in every news item. Any messages that going? It's not the tongue is this has been lies, lies, lies. So everybody thinks when everybody's lying. Yeah.

00:11:47--> 00:12:04

So I say you justify it a society, including Muslim countries, everybody lies. How come? You're the first one who's speaking the truth. And actually, the disease is so bad with lying, that when you get so used to lying and surrounded by lies, when somebody speaks the truth, you say he's a liar.

00:12:06--> 00:12:16

I'll guarantee it for you. I've seen it so many times in my life. Somebody comes along and wants to speak the truth said, no, no, he's a liar. He can't be telling the truth. Nobody tells the truth.

00:12:17--> 00:12:22

That is a sickness that we face. If you want to change it, start from number one.

00:12:24--> 00:12:35

And we have to change it. I'm telling you, we have to change it. Because do you think that just words everybody in society most people are God bless in our society.

00:12:36--> 00:12:58

We need some people who are God conscious to change the atmosphere. You and I are sitting here. What are you doing about it? So it begins at home and it's a serious issue. Lying is a serious issue brothers and sisters. It is not just a few words that just pass by and have no consequences.

00:12:59--> 00:13:05

What color su lice Allah Allahu Allah Salam fee Hadith Allah the RWA who Behati were Muslim.

00:13:07--> 00:13:25

Allah Oh, wait, oh come be Akbar Al Qaeda al God rubella, ya rasool Allah, He said, Shall I not inform you of the biggest of the biggest sins? They said, Indeed, a messenger of Allah for Allah salAllahu Alaihe Salam, a shift biller?

00:13:26--> 00:13:39

What a cool cool holidayme wa kutlu knifes. He said, biggest of the big sins is to do shirk and associate partners with Allah and it is to be disrespectful

00:13:41--> 00:13:46

and rude and nasty with your parents and to kill someone.

00:13:47--> 00:13:59

What kind of mood take em and he was lying back like on a cushion Salallahu Salam flagella sir. Then he set up to say the last part for call.

00:14:00--> 00:14:15

Allah wa colos zoo was shahada to Zoo allow a koala zoo was shahada to Zoo allow a cow will lose zoo was shahada to Zoo and they said Sahaba he kept on repeating it and we wish he would go silent?

00:14:17--> 00:14:18

He says

00:14:20--> 00:14:48

and is it not speaking falsely lying and giving false witness? Is it not lying and giving false witness from the biggest of the big sins? So it is not a small matter? There is no such thing as small lies, lies the lies. They may begin with small lies, I guarantee you they will become bigger lies. Somebody tells a lie.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

And they get caught out so they justify by telling a bigger lie on top that tells three more than when they've told three more they need to tell seven more and you

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

carries on

00:15:02--> 00:15:22

until you realize and you need to stop it. We need to stop it young and old. It is a training process. Either you're going to lie and become a liar and not even realize that the angel on the left is liking everything not the one on the right until we do talk about brothers and sisters. Islam came to reform us

00:15:24--> 00:15:29

people say oh well you know societies like that. His his other

00:15:30--> 00:15:36

Yeah, his habit is that you know, it's just the it says personality they say

Well anybody can on the Day of Judgment come before Allah say Ya Allah it was my personality. I was just Allah You made me like that stuff for Allah stuff for Allah. Will they be escaped brothers and sisters? There'll be no escape.

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

There'll be no escape.

00:15:54--> 00:16:03

Alright, we're gonna fix the lesson.

00:17:14--> 00:17:19

We're in Sama, oh, Salah, Wacol.

00:17:21--> 00:17:22

Nepal and a Muslim.

00:17:23--> 00:17:29

Oh come upon. The signs of a hypocrite are three.

00:17:31--> 00:17:34

When he or she speaks, they lie.

00:17:35--> 00:18:23

When he or speak, when he or she gives a promise they break it. When he or she is entrusted with something they break the trust. And those are signs of a hypocrite. Whether they pray or fast and keep on saying I am Muslim. That's what the Prophet SAW said. Is that not enough warning for us brothers and sisters to change our ways? And do we need to change our ways? I'm not saying you need to change your ways. All of us are sinners. I begin with myself. All of us be weary. You know, brothers and sisters, the test isn't when everything's nice and happy because even the atheist, and the one who doesn't believe in a day of judgment can tell the truth when it's in their favor. Oh, do

00:18:23--> 00:18:31

you tell the truth? Oh, yeah, yeah, this happened. That happened because it's all in my favor. The crunch comes when it's not going to be in my favor, isn't it?

00:18:32--> 00:18:46

Or when somebody's provoked me and I want to get my revenge on them. I'm not going to lie now about them. That's when the test comes. Test isn't money. It's all nice and easy. Anybody can pass that test.

00:18:47--> 00:18:53

Anybody can pass that test. I call okoli. How that was tough with hula hula. In novela photo Rahim.

00:18:57--> 00:19:06

of family life Rob Bill Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Ashraful MBI will mousseline will Allah early he will be here tomorrow in a MOBA Yola, are you like

00:19:10--> 00:19:11

why do people lie?

00:19:13--> 00:19:21

The biggest lies you say is the one that denies Allah and His messenger. That's the biggest of lies that's why they're known as cat that

00:19:24--> 00:19:30

are at La Vie you can debo be the Have you seen the one who denies

00:19:32--> 00:19:39

denies the lying about the Day of Judgment. Interesting said or truthfulness.

00:19:40--> 00:19:50

There's two more things that come from it. Yeah, Sadiq Sadiq is your friend. It comes from the root to do with telling the truth.

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

You wouldn't consider a friend somebody who's lying to you all the time with your brothers and sisters. So it's beautiful. That actual friend in Arabic is Sadiq.

00:20:01--> 00:20:03

And sadaqa

00:20:05--> 00:20:17

in Islam is that which you give us charity, which also comes from the same root of truthfulness, which is clarified in a hadith when the Prophet Salla Salam said, as was sadaqa to bow to

00:20:18--> 00:20:28

that charity is a proof proof of what of your truthfulness that you're going to you believe that you're going to be rewarded by Allah on the Day of Judgment.

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

It's a beautiful term standardizing it.

00:20:32--> 00:21:22

It doesn't just mean charity has a deeper meaning behind it. So why do people lie? Number one, for selfish gain. I've made it I made I made an extra 200,000 by laying no ban, aka, the 200 pound will be a burden on their back on the Day of Judgement. Is it not brother and sisters? But time for now? They think they're having a great time with a 200 pound or 2000 pound or 2 million pounds. Yeah. So there's lying, lying, lying, because they'd be knocked to something and this I remind you, young ones, if the mother and father has said, Go on ps4 Is that PS five now I lose lose track. Go for an hour after that stop. So you went on for three hours. And when the parents came home, they asked you

00:21:22--> 00:21:24

did you do that? Yes, I did.

00:21:25--> 00:21:26

And you were there for three hours.

00:21:28--> 00:21:42

The three hours you did is less of a sin than the lie you told by saying I was there for one hour. Do the three hours but be truthful and say I'm a fault. And you will be a better character I tell you

00:21:45--> 00:21:51

you will be a better character. Always speak the truth. So to safeguard yourself

00:21:53--> 00:21:59

and think you can hide how you're going to find hide from him. Well who was Cemil proceed.

00:22:01--> 00:22:09

Well who are aluminum is that is to do. He is the All Hearing the all seeing. He knows the inner secrets of your hearts how you're going to hide.

00:22:10--> 00:22:11

No point lying.

00:22:13--> 00:22:18

And thirdly, people lie because they want to take out on somebody

00:22:19--> 00:23:10

because they've got hatred, jealousy, anger fill. So they go out of the way to lie about them, lie about them, to hurt them or to cause trouble for them. Yeah, that is room that is such a wrongdoing and will cause serious problems for people who do that is a reason why people lie. And all of it means there's no fear of God in the end. All of it. That's why the verse I started with all you who believe be mindful and conscious of Allah. And when you speak speak the truth because that's what's gonna help you our Eman our Islam came to help us brothers and sisters, and we throw it to one side. And then we wonder why we're in a state that we're in brothers and sisters

00:23:11--> 00:23:19

isn't it? But that's the reality. And the Prophet SAW slim said in Hadith which is reporting Buhari Muslim which I'll finish with

00:23:21--> 00:23:24

barbicide slim said Allah it can be said

00:23:25--> 00:23:42

you must be always truthful all of you. I like talking to the believers alike can be said for in a said the car. Yeah, the ill bear because truthfulness leads to righteousness. We're in no better. Yeah the ill Jana

00:23:44--> 00:23:45

we're in the Rachael

00:23:46--> 00:23:49

00:24:05--> 00:24:09

And they pursue and strive always to try and tell the truth.

00:24:11--> 00:24:19

Until it is written down with Allah that he or she is a truthful person said Deacon.

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

Then the province also warned about lies.

00:24:29--> 00:24:29

Have you tuber angula He can burn until it is written with Allah. Or he is written or she is written with Allah with Allah as a liar.

00:25:30--> 00:25:34

Do we want that brothers and sisters? Then we have to change.

00:25:35--> 00:26:05

Then we have to change. May Allah subhanaw taala give us the trophy when people say oh, oh, there's exceptions isn't we love exceptions? Don't we? Just follow the rule, Man, forget the exceptions, because the exception is only to do with law and you and I are not at war Alhamdulillah and the other exception is to make peace between two people how little we do have that brothers and sisters there you can actually lie and say so and so said nice things about you actually.

00:26:07--> 00:26:08

That's the only exception.

00:26:10--> 00:26:16

Stay away. Stay away from this lying and be truthful as we should be as believers.

00:26:17--> 00:26:26
