humbly lying on Bill Alameen wa Salatu was Salam.

00:00:32 --> 00:00:35

Ala truffle MBI well, more so you

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

necessarily who back England nerf it what is going worse? Yeah. What led him that electrical wacky Lee Hill must see well, how Noah Quwata illa de la la li la Lim.

00:01:06 --> 00:01:38

Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds Peace and blessings on his prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, after saints lands to you We ask Allah, our Lord, our Creator, our goal, our return our originator, we asked him for his acceptance of our any of our good deeds to purify our our intention and our hearts from hypocrisy. And from doing any kind of check with him, we ask Allah to

00:01:39 --> 00:01:41

give us wide to give us

00:01:44 --> 00:01:46

00:01:48 --> 00:02:01

and wide sustenance and on a love we utterly depend to him is our goal is no power mic, except that of Allah will already be to Him. Brothers Sisters carrying on from

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

really where we left off last time,

00:02:07 --> 00:02:15

I mentioned that we were going to look at we finished with the first sort of section of

00:02:17 --> 00:02:24

or you could say the second section of Hadith 14. Let me remind this of the Hadith in case there's new people who joined us.

00:02:25 --> 00:02:39

Of course, it is always difficult for new people joining them what they missed before of course, but I hope and pray people still benefit if they miss things and also for people who have not been there from the beginning of the 14 these classes.

00:02:40 --> 00:02:45

So I'm sorry if there's stuff I've covered and I tried to

00:02:46 --> 00:02:49

I'm not trying to fall off the questioning at the end.

00:02:50 --> 00:03:07

But if I've answered something in detail, I don't like answering it then, in few words, because it can give a different impression, especially if it's a more complex issue. So just to remind us of Hadith, a hadith of Robbia Lasha

00:03:08 --> 00:03:09

or MA who

00:03:10 --> 00:03:26

and the Massoud Rhodiola who unco Paul, all of us who live sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lay down warmly in Muslims in Lubbock, Dallas, as it was Zanni when nefs will be nefs. What tactically Dini Hill, methodically Chema.

00:03:27 --> 00:03:30

Allahu Bihari, one Muslim

00:03:32 --> 00:03:37

reporter of the Lebanon Massoud at the mercy of Allah salAllahu Salam said the

00:03:39 --> 00:03:45

spelling of a blood of a Muslim cannot be done except in three situations.

00:03:47 --> 00:03:58

And after a failure was Zanni the married person committing adultery life for a life and the one who leaves the dean and separates from

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

the the pajama community.

00:04:05 --> 00:04:10

So the first part is lie your finger down movement muslimin because not really

00:04:12 --> 00:04:38

allowed to spill the blood of a Muslim and that's the part I want to focus on today. Specifically, or part of that anyway, this is the topic is more comprehensive than that. We dealt with a theme was early in her great detail the issue of adultery, fornication, Zina, and all the things surrounding it for the last few sessions.

00:04:41 --> 00:04:41

What

00:04:43 --> 00:04:52

we want to focus on partly on today is the dignity of the human beings not just a Muslim, but as the human being here mentioned the Muslim.

00:04:53 --> 00:04:59

That's not to say that the blood of the disbelievers can be spilled

00:05:00 --> 00:05:02

Have willy nilly any old cow

00:05:03 --> 00:05:30

and we must not misunderstand from disbelief that but you see, in the case of this believer who's at war, then it becomes legal to spill the blood in a war situation that's the only perhaps exception you can add to this for a disbeliever so wouldn't be three then. So, this is why it mentioned that the Muslim here sometimes the word Muslim is used in a

00:05:31 --> 00:05:42

general sense by the office as well. But it can mean the human being in one Hadith for example, the Prophet SAW Allah Islam which is authentic, is reported to have said

00:05:44 --> 00:05:48

and Muslim men Saleemul Muslim men Celie

00:05:50 --> 00:06:01

men selling Muslim all mainly Sandy he were merely Muslim is the one from whose hand and Tong Muslims assets

00:06:04 --> 00:06:59

so you before you run into the idea that this means just Muslims people like a no way other scholars have said notice is referring and the psyche actually reports this and I mentioned this before the same Hadith with different words, which shows you the interchange of Muslim with an S and the site your reports are different authentically from a prophesy some saying I'll Muslim men Salomon NAS Soo Min Salomon Natsu Maria de y melissani. Mila Santi women Yeti, Muslim is the one from whom people human beings are safe from his or her and odd. Yeah, so I've made my point how a nurse and Muslim can its general use of language. Yeah, and I mentioned this similar for Rachel as well to mean a

00:06:59 --> 00:07:03

person not a man only many times this is how

00:07:05 --> 00:07:27

classical speech was and can be in everyday language. People don't talk with definitions. It's just general statement. So here it can cover the human beings anyway. So this point is about safeguarding the life of people.

00:07:28 --> 00:07:53

Yeah, and all of that is linked with the dignity of Kurama that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala created human beings with Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah Bani Israel from 17 Verse 70, Allah smart Allah says, Well nobody can run then he gonna walk well now who will be well?

00:07:55 --> 00:07:56

What was Acuna

00:07:57 --> 00:08:02

may not buy ye bath Eva for Bill now whom Allah Cassie

00:08:05 --> 00:08:08

Colaco we

00:08:09 --> 00:08:22

Indeed, indeed, we have honored the Children of Adam, Children of Adam isn't referring us to Muslim human beings we Allah saying these on them, given them around Rama,

00:08:23 --> 00:08:38

nobility these creation and we carried them on the land and the sea last time the means available for carrying them on the lands and in London the sea was Acuna whom may not call you

00:08:39 --> 00:08:54

and we nourish them from all that which is wholesome and good. Allah Munich Allah saying, we provided human beings with food that with as well for any body about new food and bring and we

00:08:55 --> 00:09:02

will football now whom Yeah, and we exalted them. Yeah. distinguish them

00:09:03 --> 00:09:09

over much of Allah saying what we created what Allah created from his creatures

00:09:10 --> 00:09:23

distinguish them with real distinguishing Yeah or or exalted them. Yeah this is a crown of all human beings that Allah smart Allah mentioned in the, in the Quran.

00:09:25 --> 00:09:30

So other verses talking about the Kurama of human beings Allah smartglasses

00:09:31 --> 00:09:38

law pandahall optimal in Santa Fe, Sunny Tahoe we

00:09:39 --> 00:09:59

that were indeed We created the human being in the best of forms the best of forms. Duck we came here doesn't mean the best of outward appearance you know, many people think that means best physically No, no best as a whole. The human being and this is again and

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

IoT is linked with the Kurama and nobility of the human being. And that idea is there in the very beginning when Allah SmartArt creates So human beings seem to be angels with the color of Bukal Bala eager to in nature I feel Audi, Holly if

00:10:20 --> 00:10:28

and when your Lord remember when your Lord said to the angels surely I'm about going to create for on Earth

00:10:30 --> 00:10:31

on Earth Khalifa.

00:10:33 --> 00:11:15

Khalifa Khalifa many people translate it as being a vice Jarrett, a representative of God. Yeah, it can have that meaning the Khalifa also means comes from the word, the one that has generations. Yeah, hope that that's both generation after generation that keeps on going on through reproduction. So you can have that meaning and the meaning of Vice Chair currency as well which is an honorable position, isn't it? For bunny Adam, for the children of Adam, when they take it on board and take that is that is a secondary matter but Allah smartbug greeted them with that nobility

00:11:22 --> 00:11:23

it is mentioned in Sahih Muslim

00:11:25 --> 00:11:31

from even me Laila that place even sad and Sahel if * Naef

00:11:33 --> 00:11:37

to see ya this is in the land of the

00:11:40 --> 00:11:45

Persians Yeah, the Zoroastrians a firewall I suppose in Ireland

00:11:49 --> 00:11:58

little we'll call the SIA for Marga. Big imagine as a former, these are two Sahabi. And funeral went by so they stood up.

00:12:00 --> 00:12:12

Yeah, they stood up out of respect for the dead, passing by of the funeral the beer for Kilala Houma it was sent to them in a hermit and

00:12:13 --> 00:12:35

they said to them, he's the one who's passing by this janazah this dead person is from the local people. They're the Muslims. In other words, they're not believers. Yeah, for call. For both of them, what did they say? They said, in Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi salam, Margaret V Janaza. Upon

00:12:37 --> 00:12:43

for karma Fokin they said at the time of the Prophet Prophet sighs Salam.

00:12:45 --> 00:12:47

Whether a funeral

00:12:49 --> 00:13:19

procession went by, and the Prophet saw some stood up, and it was said to him, Prophesy Salam in now who Yeah, who D. Yeah, it is. It is it? Is it a Jew? Yeah, for all what are the pockets? I'm saying? He said at least nevsun Is it not a soul? Is it not a being a person? This is that dignity and Kurama respect for the human being as prophesized and teaching from this hadith

00:13:23 --> 00:13:25

the idea of

00:13:26 --> 00:13:42

absolute duck when being created in the best form of form, again, comes out when the last one says all of us, T will or will have was what I call a fat * then as soon as he lay Hill mostly,

00:13:44 --> 00:14:27

as in sort of our life motto says, He created the heavens and the earth in truth. Yeah, and he shaped you. And what an excellent shape. Yeah, what an excellent shape. And to him is the goal or the return, what an excellent shape here, form. Again, it doesn't even it doesn't need to be limited to just outward form. It's talking about the human being, as a being, and in fact, the essence of human being the distinguishing factor of a human being and his is his or her nobility. I don't have to say his or her when I say he, the human being of course, it covers both. But you know, in the world nowadays, sometimes people get very touchy about that.

00:14:29 --> 00:14:38

Anyway, I don't want to be dragged into that discussion. But anyway, the human beings real nobility is not, is not really

00:14:39 --> 00:14:59

not especially in the physical form, yet but it is in the intellect and the mind and the heart. That is what really that that free will and choice that Allah smart Allah gave me the intellect and the ability to learn that Alas, my boss, gave to the human being as he taught the names to Adam. Yeah,

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

Alayhis Salam in paradise before even set the human beings down that ability to name and to learn the intellect that he gave, which even the angels did possess, they were stumped by, by that. Yeah, that perhaps is the real nobility.

00:15:19 --> 00:15:19

So

00:15:21 --> 00:15:22

in regards to

00:15:25 --> 00:15:29

the dignity of the human being, if we

00:15:37 --> 00:15:38

do that

00:15:40 --> 00:15:42

if we're talking about dignity of the human being,

00:15:45 --> 00:16:10

how does that translate? And the translation of that? Perhaps we can say, and we get that idea from Islam, is that the human being has been given that special position, everything in the heavens and the earth Alas, Monica says was Saqqara. Yeah. Yeah, we made it available was Saqqara, like math is on our field, I will be Jeremy

00:16:12 --> 00:16:13

enough he that he can

00:16:15 --> 00:16:27

follow me on and he is subjected to all that is in the hills and all that is the earth all from Him. Verily in that assigns for people who think and reflect,

00:16:29 --> 00:16:42

think and reflect linking with human beings may be a special that's bringing out a speciality of the human being, by the way, at the end of the eye as well. But everything being subjugated made available for the human beings. Yeah.

00:16:44 --> 00:16:46

That is part of the Kurama

00:16:47 --> 00:16:50

or the nobility and the human being being a

00:16:51 --> 00:16:53

part of that is

00:16:54 --> 00:16:55

the

00:16:56 --> 00:17:22

safe safeguarding of every human being saw as part of it. Safeguarding life. Yes, safeguarding his or her honor. Safeguarding his consciousness, his decision? Yeah, his choice. Yeah, that is part and parcel of the dignity of the human being that Islam actually, Islam actually gives? Yeah, Islam actually gives us

00:17:24 --> 00:17:25

an actually.

00:17:28 --> 00:17:32

That includes the choice of religion, choice of religion,

00:17:34 --> 00:17:36

family, home capital, women who moved men

00:17:37 --> 00:17:42

from them, or those who are disbelievers, and those who are

00:17:43 --> 00:17:56

believers. Let's not assume that in the Quran. Allah is not assessed. Equal raw. Deen caca, Jana domainer La Jolla. There is no compulsion in religion. Yeah.

00:17:59 --> 00:18:31

grossed guide, yet truth have been made distinct and clear from that which is deviant and false. Yeah, I was not like me, but that the choice is for the human being. With the nobility, Allah created the mind the intellect and the choice to either come forward and submit or to reject. Yeah, that's not what we'll have to mail what people say, the truth is from your Lord, yours in the plural your Lord. Amen. Sure. fairly open mean, women should

00:18:33 --> 00:18:48

react for so whoever wills then let him or her believe and whoever wills let him or her reject. Yeah, of course there's consequences to that that's a different story. But the choice in the end is there so that's why

00:18:50 --> 00:19:01

when you look at the Allah ma who dealt with possibly Sharia and if any of you stood in my classes, we are the objectives of the Sharia. And

00:19:02 --> 00:19:09

this is not something new, but Allah ma of deep understanding of religion. Yeah, the beacons of light of the Allah.

00:19:12 --> 00:19:26

Throughout the centuries mentioned this idea of the objectives of Sharia and especially saw it from early time especially to the likes of Ben northiam among bizarrely before that as well. The Imam was early

00:19:28 --> 00:19:59

and then the likes of not via MacGibbon Tamia volume writes a lot about Imam Rafi and a shot to be of course from the Malik here as well. There write extensively across the Sharia the objective the Sharia Olimar divided the the rules and regulations of Sharia into three major areas. Yeah. The top they put a Zodiac yeah the absolute necessities which which

00:20:00 --> 00:20:15

Sherea came to cover the second they put ahead yet yeah, this is an the third attack scene yet they put them in this priority but with within each of them are things which are

00:20:16 --> 00:21:07

fun and things which are haram. It's not a test you need to do to do with just little matters that are not important. No, but the reality of, of you could say, the highest and absolute importance. Yeah. And how do you add a crucial because they are facilitations or robots for difficult situations to facilitate being able to live, for example, a person dying can't be dead or consumed but that's all the choice they have. They're allowed to eat it for protecting lives. So what briefly the jury has to do with the dignity of the human being amongst a liberal Dr. The absolute necessities are protection, protection of deem, deem many Allah ma classically in present day say protection of Deen

00:21:07 --> 00:21:26

from Islam means protection of Islam and Muslims and the Islamic religion no others that's not actually the best understanding here as I said earlier, the best understanding from the Quran and Sunnah is the protection of Deen means also the protection of choosing the deen

00:21:28 --> 00:21:33

from the auroria Yeah, that you have given the human beings a choice.

00:21:35 --> 00:21:54

Yeah, the idea was never that the soul they have to submit otherwise they're going to be killed that would be against the Quran and Sunnah. And actually, unfortunately many, many people not an insignificant number of Imams of the centuries till this day how this UPS a topsy turvy idea

00:21:55 --> 00:22:23

Yeah, but actually here protection of Deen protection of conscience in other words to choose which beam to follow or to follow know the so protection of deem it means that protection of life yeah the nobility is shown in the protection of life that's why killing killing is haram which is what we're dealing with this in the Hadith law Yeah, hallo, Omri in Muslim in Illa.

00:22:24 --> 00:22:34

The taking on splitting of blood of a Muslim is not allowed except and here Muslim human beings is not allowed

00:22:35 --> 00:22:36

except

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

in

00:22:42 --> 00:22:46

in those situations and Allah subhanaw taala he mentioned that

00:22:48 --> 00:22:52

further Of course I lost my plot when it comes to

00:22:56 --> 00:23:33

killing while at that toll on masculinity how Ramallah will will help do not kill any person except that and do not kill any person that Allah has made haram prohibited except in the way of justice and truth as far as all Omar said that's for the quality the government for law to establish including in this hadith all said this is to do with the law not for people to take law in their own hands and do willy nilly what they wish

00:23:35 --> 00:23:37

me nicely Valley Yeah.

00:23:41 --> 00:23:45

As it mentioned for a last month a message in the Quran

00:23:47 --> 00:23:52

for bunnies right yield but it's revelation is for us as well.

00:23:55 --> 00:23:56

Mankato land Nelson

00:23:58 --> 00:24:00

Yeah, man, Potala, knifes nevsun

00:24:03 --> 00:24:04

belaid in this thing.

00:24:06 --> 00:24:16

And Mr. Patil and NASA Jamia yeah whoever kills a person. Yeah. Not out of retribution for murder.

00:24:18 --> 00:24:59

Yes, I thought enough, simple enough. Same old facade in fill out of one missed that bit of corruption and in the land. Yeah. These things are to be decided by the government and the law not for you know, Joe Bloggs down the road and Mr. Abdullah, on live down the street says, Well, this neighbor of mine has done facade on the land. I'm gonna go and kill him. Yeah, no, this is for the government's to decide. So what is corruption in the land? So whoever kills except it's retribution for murder again, to be decided by the courts or by the government for facade corruption in the land. Can't forget

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

And Nana Patil and NASA Jamia it says though that person has killed the whole of humanity. woman asked Yeah, forget and then there after year after year after year NASA Jamia, whoever it saves the life of a person. It's as though they said the libeled or life of the whole of humanity. That is the sanctity of life. That is a the nobility of all human life.

00:25:27 --> 00:26:16

Which Quran and Sunnah a bear. And that's why it's part of the rule yet. Protection of all life. Yeah. Which has been indicated indirectly in the studies, people tend to jump in and focus on the three, the three that I mentioned, which is the married person committing adultery and the life for a life of murder, and the one leaving the deen and separated from each other, they focus on that, but the first part of it is really crucial because the acil are the foundation. Yeah, the very foundation of, of being of existence is that life is protected. That's why it means it's giving you the sense of but you missed the beginning part, which is the dignity of life, but it's bringing out

00:26:16 --> 00:26:23

Yeah, so the from the rudia protection of the choice of religion, protection of life.

00:26:24 --> 00:26:31

Protection of the mind the apple, yeah. Protection of apple and apple here

00:26:33 --> 00:27:04

means again, to do with consciousness, it's linked again with choice. Yeah. And hence, Allah ma mentioned that anything that inebriate or destroys from drugs or or alcohol pharma, etc, that is being made forbidden Yeah. To protect the mind so that it's because that's one of the very characters of the nobility of the human being Yeah.

00:27:05 --> 00:27:13

The protection of wealth of a person and property not to you serve not to flee the thief not to steal

00:27:15 --> 00:27:22

these and finally, the protection of an honor of a person Your Honor, or

00:27:23 --> 00:27:39

a missile Anessa both used interchangeably but actually means the same thing in the end and hence the the forbidding on Xena, which is what we talked about before. Yeah. Because it's not seen as honorable it's seen as dirty the wrong way

00:27:40 --> 00:27:45

to for human beings to live their lives. Yeah. And

00:27:46 --> 00:27:48

which we covered last time but

00:27:49 --> 00:28:04

and part of that is slander being protected from the honorable person being protected. That's why slander is haram Riba is haram they're from the major sins Yeah, to spread slander rumors and even

00:28:05 --> 00:28:17

backbiting people Yeah, these are come under dosing which have been made haram Yeah, because it's in line with protecting protecting the honor and nobility of human beings.

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

So I mentioned that because

00:28:23 --> 00:28:26

nobility is very much liquid that but when I talk about

00:28:28 --> 00:28:32

the foundation and I brought that out when we also

00:28:36 --> 00:28:39

dealt with in Hadith number eight

00:28:41 --> 00:28:53

for those who weren't there, you should have reference to the recording of it we are integrate detail but that one is a well misunderstood well misrepresented.

00:28:55 --> 00:28:59

Miss transmit mistranslated and and and Miss

00:29:01 --> 00:29:07

explained Hadith and but very dangerous to battle and NASA had by yesterday

00:29:08 --> 00:29:24

I have been ordered to fight with people until the declare the shahada, etc. If you look that people think that that's the foundation Yeah, a bit some people got the idea that I have been sent just to go and kill people but look at

00:29:25 --> 00:29:59

to come to that understanding. You've got to be twisted in your mind. Because Islam What does Islam means submission and peace and you can't ignore all the ayat of the Quran and the Hadith prophesies about good behavior, about trust about kindness, about mercy about forgiveness, and his life and his character. about patience. Yeah, overlooking and throw the ball to one side and say no, the basis is of a killing of it and we put a context of attendees yet after mentioning it

00:30:00 --> 00:30:41

Uh, the fact that a nurse here in that hadith doesn't mean all of humanity. Yeah. And it was referring specifically that context. And in fact, the context needs to be seen one Hadith which was authentic broadcast context, if you remember and that was hadith of Ali Abdullah, who and who was going into battle at the request of the Prophet on the day of hybrid with the enemies who'd been fighting the unbelievers and being Yeah, perpetrating attacks on Medina. So, the war had been declared on Medina prophesy, so wasn't taken the offensive, but the defensive, in protection, even going to hybrid it was a defensive attack.

00:30:43 --> 00:31:32

And when Elisa Golan promised us and gives me the banner promising in victory is going forward. He asked the province Yaroslav, what am I fighting on? Then the prophesy Islam said the words of the Saudis. Yeah, that means no particular nests. Yeah. similar words that in other words, you're fighting. You're fighting the enemy. Yeah, who have declared war. But even then you stop fighting when they do shahada and Trump brings out other things about a great submitting about making peace that we are foremost in making peace. Yeah. And Jizya for those who are war mongers Yeah, about people who were soldiers. Yeah. But they had to be charged this tax to stop them prevent them from

00:31:32 --> 00:32:13

taking up arms. Arms again. Yeah, there's so the Hadith context is a warfare context. But Islam and life isn't war. The foundation is war. Yeah, so many people not only misrepresented that hadith but misrepresent the ayat in the Quran which they called higher to save the various opinions of which is to say was most popularly as I mentioned with the bat particular Hadith number eight, iron number five in Surah Tober where Allah is not in fact events seller for us, we will have forum fuckable Mushrikeen. At Heiser widget to move home. So when the

00:32:14 --> 00:32:37

the the sacred months have ended, then kill the mushriks wherever you find them. That's not you can't just picked up verse out of context. Yeah, it's talking about warfare, talking about the wish the king who had broken the treaty with the power of Sasana still going around a plundering and attacking

00:32:38 --> 00:33:14

believers, they were still at war. So that's the context. That's not the normal situation. Some people use this idea from scholars and presented a deviant view, a bottle opinion, saying that now the the hustle after this idea is that we are war and we kill everybody who disbelievers. Whether from which pigs or from Christians and Jews until they submit, that's the one you kill. That's the status quo. This is absolute nonsense. They actually using this as I mentioned before,

00:33:16 --> 00:33:18

abrogated wrongly

00:33:20 --> 00:33:39

Yeah, deviant li more than 100 Plus verses of the Quran and the very character of a single LaSalle Allah Salam, all to do with somebody all to do with forgiveness, all to do with Dawa all to do with a kindness etc, all thrown out the window. Allah, Allah has got guidance didn't come like that.

00:33:40 --> 00:33:41

And in fact

00:33:45 --> 00:33:58

I don't want to go into that anymore. But that's just to bring you out. The idea again, but the status quo is that of dignity for human beings. Yes. Safety for human beings. Yeah.

00:34:00 --> 00:34:57

Oh, mostly men. So men. nasil melissani. Here you I mean, yesterday. Have you flooded a lot on the same site here, which I mentioned earlier in the talk today? Yeah, Muslim is the one from whose hands that human beings and his tongue that they feel safe and progress as a youth the same root word. Salima? Yeah. And as he's using the word Muslim, meaning the very meaning of you being Muslim is supposed to be this. Yeah. So the status quo that is the status quo? Yeah. And even when we are actually critical of people who are disbelievers, or idol worshipers, etc, etc. We are critical of the doing the behavior but the person we must concrete like dirt and we must look down upon and

00:34:57 --> 00:34:59

judge them as they're going to * file we decide

00:35:00 --> 00:35:43

Episode we're going to hellfire because we don't know what the end of people are going to be. Yeah Allah in the Quran we're not denying the Quran we say what the Quran says those who disbelieve those who cheat those who deceive, etc, etc about those kinds of characters will lead to hellfire all from the ether prophesized, but of sharks why in a particular person we can't point the finger and say, we can say these are deeds, which are the deeds of the people of hellfire wrote You be careful, don't go into these don't fall that way. Don't follow shut down. Don't listen to whispers of shit. That's this is all fine. Yeah, but we're not. We're not in a position. Any of us to judge anybody.

00:35:43 --> 00:36:09

That's not being judgmental? Yeah, if people don't want to hear that they can't just point the finger and say you're being judgmental. No. And this is, again, supposed to be doing in the best manner. Yeah, in a loving way. If you can't do it in a loving way to people, then don't bother doing it. But as we'll see from a hadith later on, but at the stage, don't keep your mouth closed, if you're going to insult people.

00:36:10 --> 00:36:12

So, the

00:36:15 --> 00:36:16

the

00:36:17 --> 00:36:22

same via the the, with the dignity of the human being,

00:36:24 --> 00:36:33

is to be critical of what people are doing, but the file the person, yeah. Treat people in a dignified manner.

00:36:34 --> 00:36:46

Not in a cruel manner, and not in an arrogant manner, looking down on people. And that's what we got taught by our teachers in the 80s and 90s.

00:36:47 --> 00:36:53

In regards to dollar people in the field of dollar, especially know, this kind of thing, and

00:36:55 --> 00:36:56

there's a book that was

00:36:59 --> 00:37:00

yeah, I remember

00:37:02 --> 00:37:15

our dear teacher and brother, Farooq Morales father, I will start the Koran Murad Rahim Allah, I remember him distinctly teaching is that

00:37:18 --> 00:37:46

it is not about winning the argument, but it is about winning the hearts. Yeah, that's what we remember. And this is when you're talking and doing Dawa, to people of all kinds of backgrounds. Now, however evil their life must appear. But the idea one of the things is not about winning the argument and looking superior looking better, but it's about winning the heart, even though you may lose the argument.

00:37:47 --> 00:38:16

So it's about winning the hearts of people. It's about touching the hearts of people with truth. Many people became Muslim just with their neighbors or their colleagues the way I treated them and and they didn't do any preaching on them. The ones standing with Reed giving lectures are standing at Hyde Park. I mean, long discussions and arguments. In fact, our teachers in our certainly there were critical of people doing the kind of Dawa, which involved involved debates.

00:38:17 --> 00:38:21

Yeah, MINOURA monada

00:38:23 --> 00:38:32

in Arabic, and Maha is different file monada have muhabura, which is conversation, because that brings out

00:38:33 --> 00:39:01

when Artesia and Mohan Robbins out, gentleness, kindness, listening to the other Manasa is a debate that tends to bring out the worst in approach of, of putting somebody else down and making your argument look good. It's not the best way. I'm not saying people don't embrace Islam from it, and they have done but it's not the best way, I believe, of doing Dawa. So anyway,

00:39:04 --> 00:39:14

I haven't even gone in into the topic I wanted to cover on the back of the dignity of the human being.

00:39:18 --> 00:39:19

And that topic

00:39:22 --> 00:39:35

was to do with organ donation. I don't think I'm gonna have time to go into it today. But what I want to do is to finish from the sight of dignity

00:39:37 --> 00:39:38

of the human being

00:39:40 --> 00:39:47

today with even in an hour saying about the warfare situation, not being the status quo.

00:39:49 --> 00:39:59

peace, kindness, justice. Yeah. Forgiveness overlooking pardoning people. That is the status quo for

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

believe that goes in line with the dignity of all human beings. Yeah, of all human beings, whether they believe as disbelievers, whether they're five worshippers, idol worshipers, whatever gender they are, whatever gender they claim to be. Yeah. Whether the drunkards or whether they're thieves whether they're in the prison or not,

00:40:24 --> 00:40:26

or whether they're murderers. Yeah.

00:40:28 --> 00:40:32

We, of course, a bore a behold the act.

00:40:33 --> 00:40:42

Yeah, but not the person. And that's not easy to do. Of course, that requires reflection and thinking, is it novel?

00:40:43 --> 00:40:56

In, in theory is easy for me to say, in practice, it's not that easy to practice is it? So we have a Hadith of the Prophet saw someone just remember

00:40:57 --> 00:41:01

that from the Bani Israel, you probably saw some said there was

00:41:02 --> 00:41:15

a person a big scholar, and what ducky God fearing person. And he was so pious, and God fearing that when he used to sit,

00:41:17 --> 00:41:22

yeah, Allah subhanaw taala used to send a cloud over him to shade him from the sun.

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

So

00:41:26 --> 00:41:28

at one time when he's sitting there,

00:41:30 --> 00:41:35

this person comes, who is known to be

00:41:36 --> 00:41:41

a bad person in society. Yeah, fast sick, you could say

00:41:43 --> 00:42:00

somebody who's into all sorts. So this bad person tries to come and sit next to this saintly person who is under the shade cloud, and comes near to try and share the shade.

00:42:01 --> 00:42:02

And this person

00:42:05 --> 00:42:16

come up while I forgotten the exact words of this, but I'm giving you the gist of the story. This person was a saint, the godly person looked down on this fantastic

00:42:18 --> 00:42:35

person whose life was upside down. And like looks down and saying hey, what are you doing sitting next to me under the shade? Why are you sharing this meaning somebody filthy like you dirty behavior? How dare you come and try and share this cloud with me? Yeah.

00:42:36 --> 00:42:47

So and publicize them said, so Allah smart, I remove the shade the cloud shade from him and put it over this fantastic person.

00:42:50 --> 00:42:53

Another story, which is an authentic hadith,

00:42:54 --> 00:42:57

publicize them mentioned is that there were two friends.

00:42:59 --> 00:43:22

And they'd grown up together known each other all the lives one went down the road of not being a good person fast, sick, doing those getting into all sorts of bad. Yeah. And the other one became godly. A person of religion and close to God doing good works and worshiping Allah.

00:43:23 --> 00:43:24

And every now and then,

00:43:25 --> 00:43:29

yeah, after time pass, they used to meet after some time.

00:43:30 --> 00:43:45

And every time they used to meet the godly person would say to the the bad person, you really need to stop what you're doing is not right. Yeah, this is very bad what you're doing, you should be doing this and doing that.

00:43:46 --> 00:44:13

And then it meets him again after some time and be a bit more harsh. Yeah. Then it meets him again. And the final time he met him, and he really upset the bad person. Because he became very angry with him and said, This is disgusting what you're doing. And he said, You are going to go to hellfire. Yeah, you are going you're going to be put in hellfire.

00:44:15 --> 00:44:21

I'm telling you, you are one of the dwellers of hellfire. That's the kind of statement he made

00:44:22 --> 00:44:24

like a judgmental statement.

00:44:25 --> 00:44:31

So the publicize them said they were raised up on the day of judgment.

00:44:33 --> 00:44:37

And Allah subhanho wa Taala first challenged the godly person

00:44:38 --> 00:44:39

Yeah.

00:44:40 --> 00:44:49

And said to him, who gay who gave you the right to take my throne and make a judgment on anybody.

00:44:51 --> 00:44:56

And the last one o'clock, cast them into hellfire instead and forgive the other person.

00:44:58 --> 00:44:58

So these

00:44:59 --> 00:44:59

are

00:45:00 --> 00:45:00

These are

00:45:02 --> 00:45:51

authentic stories on roadside some, but they're they're a warning again for us, if anything of not being judgmental about people, and it brings up again, for us the idea of the dignity of the human being not the taking possession of Allah subhanaw taala and of having a respect and kindness, which is the way that's why we're not our Sanaka Illa Rahmatullah Allah mean, we have not sent you down except the mercy to the oil creation. So here is Allah subhanaw taala, who's who's the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate, sends the most the mercy to the whole of creation, and sends as rough mark is Quran. And then we have people interpreting Islam as that which came to kill as subdue

00:45:51 --> 00:46:05

everybody who's a disbeliever. Either the subdue, become Muslim, otherwise, we'll chop the heads off, I'll kill them. I mean, how far away? Has the apple fallen from the tree, as they say, in English, to have that kind of interpretation coming out? Yeah.

00:46:07 --> 00:46:09

That kind of interpreted coming out.

00:46:11 --> 00:46:22

The mind boggles, as it says sometimes, but I'm afraid it is there to be found in the in the books, as well as in presently ideas of people.

00:46:28 --> 00:46:30

I'm going to stop there.

00:46:31 --> 00:46:46

Today, I will have to cover the issue. Why do I link this with the issue of organ donation? Leave your test with it because one of the reasons why some people objected to organ donation

00:46:49 --> 00:46:52

is linked with the dignity of the human body.

00:46:54 --> 00:47:27

They try to use that to to basically say, it is not allowed because the human body is being dignified by Allah and therefore we cannot open it up dissected. Yeah, that's one of the things they use only. I'm not going to open up the discussion on that, that I'm going to cover in Sharla in the next lesson, and all the other arguments are presented by some people, and what the best opinion with evidence in regards to blood donation and organ donation is

00:47:28 --> 00:47:32

inshallah in the in the coming class next week, but as the lack of time Allah.

00:47:34 --> 00:47:51

I think that's all I have to say today. If there's a question we've covered, please, the not the floor, but the mic is open in sha Allah, if there's any questions in writing, suffer, please take note and if you can read them out to me, as surely as well.

00:47:55 --> 00:47:56

Yeah.

00:48:03 --> 00:48:10

Anything, anybody? He can send it in writing or you can ask across the mic, no problem with that.

00:48:16 --> 00:48:17

Complete silence.

00:48:20 --> 00:48:25

Not always a good sign complete silence. Either it shows somebody's too busy

00:48:27 --> 00:48:34

playing a game or eating their food which you're enjoying and they don't want to be stirred or they didn't understand what I was talking about. It's done over their head.

00:48:37 --> 00:48:40

Well, I suppose you could say it's

00:48:42 --> 00:48:43

sorry.

00:48:48 --> 00:48:53

You said that they were brought forth on the day of judgment, but that hasn't happened yet.

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

You

00:48:56 --> 00:49:01

the Prophet sighs I'm giving you a picture on the day of judgment or what will happen

00:49:06 --> 00:49:07

did you get that?

00:49:08 --> 00:49:13

Yes. Thank you. Yeah. Yeah, that's what it means.

00:49:18 --> 00:49:20

Any other questions or clarifications?

00:49:23 --> 00:49:36

Of course, the Hadith number eight. I do. Distribute a shot of it today and exposition on it today. Those who missed that it will be it is available. It's been recorded.

00:49:37 --> 00:49:49

How sufferers going to get it to you as a different matter. I know some of you asked for other recordings as well. I don't think there's been sorted yet. But I hope it will be sorted soon. So this the whole thing is available.

00:49:52 --> 00:49:57

Any other question? No other questions when you're getting off early today, it's only five to eight.

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

snarly fingers like Alicia, suede here along with Matala, welcome cyl, no, I haven't spoken to you for a long time, okay? Handle Eliza lemak as a very important saying that Prophet peace be upon him stood up for that funeral passing by so we should be attending funerals of non believers to be talking about this in the past.

00:50:28 --> 00:50:43

Yeah, and many of them are allowed for if you have friends or family who are non muslim or you are allowed to attend funeral. I mean, what they meant was that you're not allowed to take part in the service.

00:50:44 --> 00:50:55

Yeah, yeah. Yeah. So if his Christian service were not Christian, so we're not going to partake of that or if it's a Hindu service and the burning the body when I would really like to attend the funeral.

00:50:57 --> 00:51:29

You know what I mean? Yeah. So some of the things we have to keep in mind or what we accept on the prophesy some didn't attend the funeral. But you know, in the end, perhaps we apply it to when a funeral cars going by, that we nowadays it's not going by by carried by human beings on a horseback and then people on the way on the streets, as it used to happen in all the world. And people will stand up out of out of respect wouldn't. That was the practice. Nowadays, the cars just go by and you're not really able to stand up. So yeah.

00:51:33 --> 00:51:37

I hope that clarifies yesterday, thank you

00:51:42 --> 00:51:53

see, even attending and standing. It doesn't contradict the fact that from the Quran saying for the mustachian, that you're not allowed to ask for forgiveness for them.

00:51:54 --> 00:52:08

Just because you stand up out of respect. You're not making a dua for forgiveness for them. Just because you attend a funeral and not partake of the service. Doesn't mean you're automatically asking for forgiveness for which is not allowed, of course.

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

Yeah.

00:52:12 --> 00:52:31

That's family. Kim. Yeah, just want to just want to clarify that because I have been to a few a Catholic funeral. And it was in the church, but I didn't take part in it. I just sat at the back. And I didn't go to the grave. Graveyard. But it was just that a respect because it was

00:52:33 --> 00:52:43

a Muslim who's, you know, who had converted? So it was her mother. So it was supporting her. So I mean, that's what I did. And I thought it was okay.

00:52:46 --> 00:52:48

Yeah, absolutely fine.

00:52:49 --> 00:52:56

Chef just said that Rachael Marvel law, the grid chef, gosh, I don't know. He'd liked me calling the grid Chef. Chef.

00:52:57 --> 00:53:04

Rahim Allah who was the mom and scholar of Regent's Park. Some of you on here may know him. I'm showing my age really.

00:53:05 --> 00:53:18

He said back in the 80s. He gave permission for that kind of attendance sitting in the back of the church not joining the service. And there's there's nothing wrong with having to go to the burial ground. Nothing.

00:53:21 --> 00:53:25

Right, Hey, yo, calm. We have a question from brothers arraign.

00:53:27 --> 00:53:29

Was the Koran exclusive to humans and Jen?

00:53:33 --> 00:53:40

Was the Quran exclusive to humans? And Jim? Oh, who else is going to be to?

00:53:41 --> 00:53:42

What do they mean?

00:53:44 --> 00:53:48

We only know of humans and Jim that Allah created yes, the answer would be yes, wouldn't it

00:53:49 --> 00:54:12

and for the A Allah you don't become to cut the band brings that out which of the favours and bounties of your Lord will you both deny its token to human and Jim, the two kinds of creation and the prophesies of meeting the gym which I mentioned in spirit as well? Was it also for the whole of creation as I didn't read that last time? Creation or perhaps for other unknown creations?

00:54:14 --> 00:54:40

know we aren't we only know what we know Quran was sent to us through the prophets, Allah Salam, yeah, prophesy, some did go. All we know is that he did meet with the jinn and the jinn are addressed in the Quran. How much more about the jinn is very limited knowledge I've said before so no we don't go into any other fields of it was sent to other people and other planets etc. Not relevant to us but

00:54:41 --> 00:54:46

Allah was also also says to general insula LEA will do listen to so

00:54:47 --> 00:54:48

meaning you know

00:54:50 --> 00:55:00

that's that's not saying there's no other creation that's just saying I only created gym and I didn't create you know, everyone except for worshiping and serving me. Yeah me

00:55:00 --> 00:55:05

You would indicate a Cron is only for the humans and Jim doesn't know doesn't really indicate it.

00:55:07 --> 00:55:16

But the fact that the Quran says orderliness whereby in a typical Buddha there well for Han Quran saying guidance for humanity

00:55:18 --> 00:55:20

not guidance my angel for example

00:55:25 --> 00:55:26

right

00:55:28 --> 00:55:44

guide guidance for humans and yes secondarily you can say guidance for Jin and guidance of human beings who are alive is an ESA guidance for this earth where we living in this life not a guidance for birds not not guidance in the hereafter.

00:55:46 --> 00:55:47

Not a guidance the dead

00:55:53 --> 00:55:54

anything else?

00:55:58 --> 00:56:00

No, okay.

00:56:01 --> 00:56:05

Well, we finished early today, so I'm sorry, you didn't get your tokens worth

00:56:08 --> 00:56:10

as this as we said in Yorkshire

00:56:12 --> 00:56:14

I'm sure everybody understands tuppence worth.

00:56:15 --> 00:56:16

Yeah.

00:56:18 --> 00:56:21

Two pennies was two pennies.

00:56:22 --> 00:56:25

Yeah. But anyway, so

00:56:26 --> 00:56:33

in sha Allah, we shall resume and I will go into the too young for that link.

00:56:37 --> 00:56:40

Only you can get away with saying that to me, too young.
