hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah He often Salah woman while I am barracks that Mr. Li Kumar, Allah who about a cartoon. So brothers and sisters, today we're going to continue the conversation about how poor n addresses the whole idea of gossip and spreading rumors. And this is all connected to the incident that happened to our beloved Isha all the Aloha line here and Alo we'll continue this conversation and continue to just address how serious it is in the sight of Allah despite that it might not be as serious to you and I it's a big deal in the sight of Allah Subhana Allah, I'm telling you guys like whenever we talk about gossip and spreading rumors, usually
we shift our attention to like maybe a verse in suta hoogenraad or a couple of verses instilled at the time
and rarely we come to a section here in sorta to nor the way that a lot talks about gossip is like unimaginable like it'll blow your mind as you're going to see here today in sha Allah so let's get right into it. Allah continues and he says well Oh la la here la Kumara metal if it wasn't for the pleasure and Rama of Allah for dunya well era in this world and in the app what is a lot of talking about remember after now this news was spread all over Medina by though to sell more now Filipino or demonaco so the head of all of the hypocrites Abdullah even obey even so doing now this individual spread this rumor about the eyeshadow, the Aloha Nell was up to no good so once it's spread all over
Unless says that if it wasn't for his mercy and His love and acceptance for you that in this world as well in the in the earth that our ally is talking to those who repented for this, when they realized we shouldn't have been talking about her. We should have tried to stop this from the very beginning. We should have said something we should have told people guys just like don't talk about this stuff anymore. When they realize that they didn't do that they didn't stand up for the dignity and respect of their mother. And, and the leader. You know, one of the leaders of the Muslim world are a shout out the Aloha. No, they didn't stay out of the Aloha. No, they didn't stand up for her.
They didn't defend her and protect her. Unless says that if it wasn't you know for his love and mercy, you know, for his virtue and his blessing upon you in this world and year after that he would have given you the opportunity to repent and see the ugliness in what you did.
lemis second female of octone fee Arthur Boone alvim. Allah says that I would have captured You snatched you up met a photon for this filthy and disgusting thing that you did and you spread all over Medina. A photon from the word falda means to spread it all over the place and in and of itself. It's disgusting. You were part
This, you would have been captured by Allah, and there would have been a painful punishment. That's one by the way, that's number one. So a couple of things happen here. If you want to know how Allah deals with spreading gossip and rumors, here is the first direction of the porter n. Number one, Allah says, if it wasn't out of his virtue and his little rock upon you. So the fact that Allah still has some sympathy for you, even though you are part of this whole mess to begin with, you know, you continue to spread this stuff about your fellow brother or your fellow sister, your fellow Muslim, or that fellow human being, you know, that fella companion, you continue to be part of that
whole process for them, unless as if I didn't give you the chance. Now, what we're learning here is that when people recover, particularly from spreading rumors, when they see how disgusting it is, that's not something that you decided you don't get to say, you know what, I don't think that's right. You know, I'm I know that that's not right. You don't get to do that. In other words, the fact that you can recognize the difference between right and wrong. That's actually a mercy from Allah that you have the ability to do that. How many times have we heard it? You know, you tell somebody stop talking about people stop spreading that stuff, man, that's just that's just filthy
talk. And they look at you like, something's wrong with you. Like, what's the big deal? It's true, isn't it? Don't we hear that all the time? I'm telling the truth, ain't I? You know, I'm talking, I'm exposing their faults because we need to know because we interact with a person. So what's the big deal? A lie is saying, Look, it's out of my mercy that you can recognize that there's something deeply wrong about that. And if it wasn't for my mercy, if I didn't give you the opportunity, and I didn't give you the strength, the clarity for you to differentiate what was right and wrong in this scenario here. I would have snatched, snatched you up for the things that you were involved in,
especially with a shot of the lohana How dare you spread her name? And you say these awful things about her? Lo fi either one of them and they would have also been apparent painful torment. Nobody thinks about gossip and spreading rumors like that a lot. There's going to be a painful torment, you know, that we all think is usually referring to the hellfire. It's usually referring to punishment in the Hellfire, but in this a less fit dunya Well, in this world as well as in the athleta
that's it's not over yet guys. If Tyler Kona who bL sinitic of Look how Allah talks about now, when you hear gossip
is Tella Kono laka on if you met bL cinetic. calm. So if you met what you heard, if it came in contact with your tongue. So in other words, you heard the rumors. And instead of just keeping it to yourself, you allowed the rumors to penetrate through your mind. Maybe through your heart and you thought well, I really wish I would do such a thing. And then it met your tongue. What does Allah say? Then you started to think about Okay, let me tell somebody did you hear what our Isha did? Did you hear what so and so was up to so it met your tongue? What up Who? Luna b f y e COMM And then your mouth started to say it. See three steps. It went into your heart. Number two, then it traveled
to your tongue. And then number three, then it came out of your voice. three step process.
A lot called out every single process.
Who thinks about gossip that way? Like, you hear it? Usually we're like, I don't want to hear that stuff. You just walk away. That's a big deal to a lot that you even took the time to listen to it. You listen to it. That's a big deal to Allah. But let's see now what you do with what you just heard. Let's see what you're going to do with it. So Allah says, You allowed it to meet your tongue. Okay. So you started talking about it? You told somebody but geez I don't tell nobody Okay, don't tell I just heard this about him or her. They got divorced again. They got married again. She married that guy can you believe and he's just you know, the the subjects and the scenarios in this
are endless. So we all know that right? But then what's up una BFY de commande de Sala combi here in then you start saying things you yourself have no idea about and you know what we learned from this a that's what ultimately gossip and spreading rumors leads to
You end up developing this habit that you can't see anything wrong about it anymore. That's why you have so many TV shows, and you have so many sitcoms that are all about one particular celebrity. And people just soak this stuff in. And you know, what makes it worse? So many Muslims, like sit there and watch this stuff. They just, they'll engrossed in Oh, my god, did you hear that? I can't believe he or she did this. I can't believe they got involved in that. And sometimes sometimes, we'll be so in tune to listen to gossip, that that is regarding our own fellow Muslim. And they don't have a clue that we're talking about them that they're the subject of this conversation. They don't have a
clue. And imagine how they would have felt, had they been there. And they heard, that's what talking about me. But you guys don't even know me. You've never even taken the time to ask me about those things. Why would you be talking to talking about me that way? If they would have just found it if had they only know how much that would hurt them?
You don't have any Muslims I meet over the years, that stop coming to the masjid. Because people just gossip about them. So many Muslims, particularly when it comes to like marriage related things, either Oh, he who he or she married? Or if the divorce happened? Or if they had a kid? or What happened? Some sort of issue. This guy did this. She did that. And they just stopped coming to the masjid because the worst of the rumors comes from their own brothers and sisters. So like, forget it, I don't want to go and then you start developing this, like real bitter mindset about Muslims are the community. I don't want to support them either. So Allah says, then you start talking about
things you don't even know anything about. So many people are guilty of that. They'll talk about the divorce, but you don't know what happened. What led to the divorce, you don't know their problems. What gives you the right How dare you even utter a sentence about something you don't even know? Who the heck are you to do that? And that's what I say like, What's your problem? And then on top of that, here's here's the next step on top of that, so you're already involved and talking about something you know nothing about
what I said, whoo hoo hyena.
And on top of that, you're like, what's the big deal? So what we're just having a conversation, hey, you know, is when you make something trivial? Like it's no big deal. Hey, you know, it's just, it's just a casual talk. Hey, Ian is also used for something that's gentle and soft. It's just just a small talk. That's all we're doing. It's just one TV show. I was watching. And I kept on watching and I watched every season. Just cares, like no big deal. You're not realizing how you're you're training your heart and your mind to become insensitive. When you hear backbiting. When you hear lies, when you hear rumors, when you hear all of this filthy stuff, all of this garbage for the
mind, and the soul, it becomes garbage. You know how many times people ask me, you know, brother, Muslim, when I listen to the poor and I get irritated, like it's annoying to me. I don't want to listen to it. But when I listened to a music when I listened to a show, when I listened to some kind of filth, How come my heart is attached to that stuff? This could be one reason why you filled your heart and your mind with so much garbage.
Now when light tries to find its way in there, there's no room for it. There's no room.
You have to sift out useless garbage information out of your mind. Because this is Lightman. This Porter n is Baraka, it's ullas words, you think you're going to mix this stuff up with filth, and it's going to resonate and remain with you. That sounds horrendous, horrendous and just seep its way into your heart and start shoveling out all of the filth. It doesn't work like that. It doesn't work. Like you have to have a sincere commitment to want this book and it starts with Okay, I gotta leave off some bad habits. I got to stay away from that stuff. So this light can resonate with you.
Well, who are in the law? Hello, we're in the law housing. This is a big deal to a law in the law here all lien or all lien. This is huge.
I have never in my life. Guys, I've never in my life. Heard anywhere, of any conversation of any lecture of anybody, any expert out there. I've never heard of gossip being talked about like this. This is from Allah. You know what kind
of subjects we talk so serious about like, fee eyes, Abu Nazim, will who are in the law hit of him like this word all the time. And as that those kinds of words are used for the biggest and most severe crimes in the sight of Allah. Like if I'll let talks about murder, if Allah talks about chevak when Allah talks about Xena, then those conversations ended up with these words. We're talking about gossip here, man. We're talking about backbiting. We're talking about spreading rumors, and Allah is using the same words. That's how serious and then on top of that, in addition to all of that, Allah spells it out well who are in the light of it? This is a huge deal in the
sight of Allah that you keep gossiping, and you keep spreading these lies about people
pause, let it sink in, guys. Oh my god.
You know why this is? So it's so overwhelming because of how common gossip is how rampant it is. It's a culture now. Who do you tell this to?
How do you tell somebody without sounding like you're a fool? like something's wrong with you like guys, gossip is a major say like, Don't spread rumors. Don't even listen to that garbage. That's serious in the sight of a lot. They might look at you and be like,
Don't isn't there like bigger things to worry about? It's just gossip. Like every human being on the planet does it? Who cares? It's no big deal.
You know when shaitan plans something
and he trapped someone. Do you see how incredibly effective
the trap of shaitan is? The devil when he works you men he works to into the ground.
But to Allah This is serious. It's not done yet guys. Unfortunately, it's not that Allah will continue on the subject. Listen to it.
While Ola is Sameera to move on to Mayor cornella Lennar and the tequila be Heather.
Had you when you heard this rumor about it, Chateau de la vida, and you would have said, Mayor corner Lana and tequila behind that we shouldn't ever be people that talk about this. Had you done that? instead? You said to yourself, my gosh, oh,
my gosh, I we shouldn't be talking about this. You know what?
And instead say so behind neck. Guys listen to sue her neck, not Subhana Allah. Those of you who study Arabic, this calf here that's attached to sub Han is the calf and Mohatta like you're talking to somebody.
So had you said instead, like you would have repelled this rumor about Ayesha.
Subhana neck, they turned directly to Allah didn't just say it's not like what you and I would say, when we hear a rumor, what do we say hi Subhana Allah, I can't believe that really Subhan Allah. We speak in third person. But these believers, when they realize their mistake, they immediately turn to Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Praise be to you yada.
Because of WA,
because they heard a rumor and they talked about it. That's it. Oh, my God.
You know, when we say subpanel law in court, and usually when it's attached to schilke
you know, when you associate a son to a lie, you say some kind of law. So the court addressed it.
When somebody worships other than Allah, so for Subhana, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Subhana, Allah, for sure.
So the believers, they're being taught, listen to this, guys, this is us, me and you. We are being taught to treat gossip and spreading rumors like blasphemy.
That's how we're being taught this.
That's the honor and the dignity that you're protecting with your fellow Muslim. And everyone at large, for that matter, everyone else. That's what believers do.
When we say we don't talk about people and even if we hear stuff, we don't spread that kind of garbage. We don't we don't do that. We treat it like as if we're committing schilke in the sight of Allah. Because when we hear it, we don't just say soprano somehow tequila. You're listening to this. You're the semi or the bossy. You're the one that hears everything and sees everything. I can't listen to this stuff. I gotta stop.
who treats gossip and spreading rumors like that? Who does that?
Who does that? May Allah make it eight make us from amongst them You see? Do you see how it's important to discover suta North? And you know what's amazing? Keep in mind what the name of this sutra is. It's the sutra of light.
Doesn't it feel like so far
our lives have been turned off and suited to nor is like we switched on a light in our hearts. We're rediscovering how serious. Zin accusing somebody of Zinner is about that whole for, you know, witnesses, and if you can't have that, how Allah reacts. Then we learned about shameless,
shameless behavior in a society, then we hear about spreading rumors, then we hear about taking those rumors and spreading it to other people, all the normal things that we hear about and we see in our day to day lives, this sort of makes us feel like
our lives have been turned off until we got to the sort of then we switched back on, then we realize, whoa, I can't just accuse somebody of Xena, I can't even just talk about that stuff. I can't even attach their name to it. And if I do, I kind of testify in front of Allah.
When I hear rumors, I mean, which human being doesn't listen or hear rumors and hears gossip, but then will who are into law here are the this is a big deal in the sight of Allah. And Allah says we've met a photon fee here as Abu now Oh my god, Allah will give a painful torment and then a look into sub Anika Bhutan when I think you know what Bhutan is Bhutan is like an enormous lifeboat when it's like a it's like a incredible lie like this is the the king of lies to say this about our issue, but I do love this is the worst worst lie you can ever imagine. Some of the scholars also say book dyno is a fabricated story like you make up a lie and spread it about that person that's
szczepanik it has gotten all the
lessons This is not just any lie This is not like a fib This is serious. How dare you the lesson for you and I obviously I'm sure it'll do lol minor is not here with us.
But there are people, Muslims that carry on her legacy. Her Allah is still here.
You don't want a sister walks into a Masjid and she's wearing niqab
and how some some communities look down. What she thinks she is wearing niqab Look at her.
You have no idea she's probably closer to her. I showed her the love wine than you will ever be in your whole life. Because she's taken her faith and submitted herself to it a step higher than the average women in that culture and that society. How dare you talk about her that way and put her down. So panic has gotten her all the
we don't get to do this stuff. Think about a society how much of it changes if this was that attitude, every time gossip and rumors were spread rampant in a society and we reacted this way. Think how the dignity and honor of a human being is preserved. No religion does it this way except Islam.
Guys, Allah has not done
while you may you know Allahu la Kumu. Yet Allah made it very clear to all of you who is a to Allah, Mr. Leeman Hakeem, Allah has complete knowledge and he has complete wisdom. I showed you all of my as I gave you this quarter, and I gave you the profit tally software. So what more do you want from me Stop talking about this stuff. Stop doing this. That's what a lesson here to us.
The fact that he reminds us that I've clarified all of my a, that's one way of looking at it. I've given you so much, and you still keep dishonouring each other. Here's a second way of understanding the A.
I've made my instructions and consequences clear to you. That's it. This is not your final warning. You do this again. Whether it be to shout out the Aloha Rhino or to your fellow Muslim you do this again. You spread rumors or you listen to that stuff and you feed into it for more. It's that well, Long Island will Hakeem, Allah will keep that in your scale. And the law is wise Allah knows exactly what he's doing.
So don't mess this up again. So the believers are being given one last and final chance.
hear from Allah. Why? Why are they getting that?
Two more verses and you'll get the answer listen to in the Latino you have Boehner and tashia Alpha he shadow Phil Athena ermine, always not done guys with this subject, listen to this now, indeed those who love to enter Shia share, to spread to a wide spread something to really scatter it. It's not just in the city, it's not it's not just spread all around in your family. Now it's got to the community, and that community passed it on to another community, then it went on the internet, it went all over social media, there are Facebook posts about you, their Instagram posts about you, then all of a sudden the media picked it up and saw the news. And now you're on the front cover of
every newspaper in the city.
That's tishy are people who love to do that stuff. And we all know somebody I know people who love to do this stuff. They love to sit there, and they will lose sleep every night just spreading more and more trash on their brother or sister.
Just spread that just keep going. It's juicy gossip. It's kind of like delicious, in a filthy way. That kind of conversation. A lot says for the people who love to spread that kind of shame Fantasia, that kind of shameful act of behavior, fill Athena MnO.
against those who acknowledge amen against those who believe in Allah lahoma de la manfredonia, while earlier Allah will take care of you and for them is a painful punishment in this world and in the era. So now what is Allah concentrating on? Now? It's not just the people involved in the rumor. Now, it's specifically those who are not involved, but they're spreading this stuff. Do you don't get to say, Look, I'm not involved in any of this. But did you hear that person or less talking to now? Nobody is left out. So we finished with Abdullah ibn obey. Right? So we finished with the one who started the rumor. We finished with the believers who got caught up in the rumor accidentally
and they repented for it. Now the third group is everybody else who listened and who just had conversations here and there. What the coluna be FYI, command a silicon be hearing. You started talking about things you have no knowledge of what I said, Oh, hey, you know, and then you thought this was not a big deal. Well, who are in the law here are thing and this is a big deal to Allah. Those people are less talking to here. They love to spread this stuff. For what? Who knows? Well, Allahu yalom went into blind latterly, mon, Allah has complete knowledge. You don't know nothing. Look how Allah humiliates people who do that.
You ever hear when somebody talks about like when somebody has gossip, right? And you're sitting there? And I'm telling you, don't you find that sometimes, like, if you really just shut off the rumor for a second and listen to the person who's telling you this stuff?
There's a part of you that would start to think God, this person is so dumb. Are you talking about the stuff? Who cares? What what kind of shoes she was wearing? And she ended up wearing the same outfit as you? Who cares? I think companies when they designed those outfits, they only made one that had your name on it. No.
So what? So what if she showed up with the same outfit? So what if he married somebody else? Somebody so what if he moved on? So what if she moved on with her life and she got remarried? So what if there was a divorce? So what if this if the kid committed a major sin? Did did they did they gross their kid into that? No. Kid got caught up with some bad friends and stuff happened. Suddenly your business don't talk about it. That's that's the reaction of the believers have.
They get disgusted when they hear disgusted when they hear gossip? It is Oh, get away. szczepanik your job that I had to listen to that filthy garbage. Oh, that's how believers react.
I guess the question here is,
have we reacted this way when we hear gossip? When we hear rumors about our fellow Muslim have we reacted this way or anything similar? I'll leave that question with you. And finally,
well, Ola, Fabiola here are Li moto moto. If it wasn't, how many times did we hear this verse? This is the third time so only two pages of the surah only 20 verses a lot already said it. Three times they fail wasn't for him.
My acceptance and mercy on you. This surah is different men Subhana Allah this sutra is different three times Allah reminds us for wasn't for my own Rama u dot dot dot dot dot. What no la hora or oo for Rahim and Indeed Allah is so extremely compassionate, or Oof, he's also sympathetic loseley Okay, you know, you messed up there. But if it wasn't that I just didn't allow my punishment to fall on you dot dot, dot, dot, dot, you know what I would have done with you? How I would have humiliate How would have punished you. So, in conclusion,
I feel like we just went through like, I don't know, man, I feel like we just went through some real, overwhelming and serious, serious set of verses that really should have an impact on all of us.
But now that we kind of walk out on the other side,
our reaction to all of this is really simple. The next time you hear gossip of any way, shape, or form, the next time you hear rumors about your fellow Muslim brother or sister, shut it down, shut it down. Look at the person who's talking and be like, be quiet. Stop talking taught, I don't want to hear that garbage. Don't Don't tell me that I don't want to hear it. Done.
Just tells subpanel like get away. I don't want to hear that stuff. Don't bring that stuff to me again. That's that's our reaction. Be firm. Because a lot is more than just firm in these a bit. A lot is more than firm. A lot is angry here in these a. And you know what's, there's also a beautiful sign of this is what I conclude with guys, is that
I told you that when you go through these areas, you will love our show to the lohana even more.
Look how Allah protects her.
Look how serious Allah subhanho wa Taala is with her issue or the lohana. Can you imagine her father Abu Bakar This is like one of the softest most gentle soul ever to exist. His daughter who by the way, that's his daughter. And you know, when a dad hears that people are spreading rumors about his daughter, especially this kind of shameful rumor that she may have done something shameful to this extent. As a father when it's your little girl, the people who say that stuff, you literally want to go there and just finish them off. Like that's the anger of father would have but boubakeur is not going to do that. Is the Sophos gentlest soul, I don't know how he would keep himself together here.
You know, and even though there was also somebody close to him, you know,
within the family within the extended family, you know, who was part of this rumor that kind of spread this rumor elsewhere? Some of them will fest pseudo and meant to talk about him. Abu Bakar instead of cutting, you know, we if you and I, if we had like a cousin or a nephew or a niece that took part in spreading rumors about my daughter or yours, what would we do with that family member? We will probably cut ties with them. It's like you out of all people, your family.
And you're spreading the stuff about my kid. You kept saying that, like forget you were done.
Abu Bakar All he does is he stops a stipend that he was giving this particular family. His particular relativity is just stopped giving him money that said, you know, it's kind of like a little tap on the wrist. That's all he does. Because why? Because he's aboubaker
but just imagine if you were him, how a dad would feel this his daughter, but at the same time, it's his mother too. Because spiritually, religiously, I shall do lohana is the wife of the Prophet of Allah. She is the mother
of the oma.
So your daughter is your is your easier little girl, but at the same time, she's also spiritually your mum, she's the leader of the mother, son Pamela.
How do you deal with that?
The hurt and the pain that level bucket of the low I must have felt that his kid was you know, she was being treated this way so Pinilla what would you do? I don't even know what I would do if somebody ever made that kind of accusation.
Getting some my daughter in particular, you don't. In the past, I used to post and I've done it every now and then that daughters are different. You know, they're just different. I don't know what it is. They're very, the connection that a father has with his daughter is very different that he has with his son. It's very, very different. You know, and it's, it's, there's a lot of protection. There's a lot of guard, there's a lot of shielding around the daughter, there is for the son as well, but not to the extent that He has for his daughter. And I don't know why that is, but it's very different. And I can't imagine if somebody were to say something like that about my daughter or
your daughter, what we what we would do in that moment, to spread that kind of trash and that kind of filth in society.
And so I hope that all of us can appreciate just how poor and dealt with this subject. So once again, when you hear rumors, whether it be related to something like this, or rumor, rumors in general,
shut it down, students shut it down. Get that filth away from you, it'll affect you, it'll get into your heart. And it'll empower shaitan even further, you know, how, wait for tomorrow, because that's the next area. The next area in sha Allah, we're going to see how shaitan took those who didn't see this as a big problem. who looked at it? What suborder who, hey, you know, they just felt like it was no big deal. We're just talking what shaitan did with people like that? How shaitan captured and drove them into the ground even further. If you think it can get any worse. Watch what happens tomorrow. What what shaitan does with people like this male law protect us. Does that come a low
head and metalized So would you bless you all for listening and I hope that in short, lo Tara, you know, some of the lessons of this sooner that is putting light back into our hearts and into our lives. I hope and I pray that we all receive that we continue to receive that beautifully Allah does that come Aloha and I will see you all tomorrow was Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
