Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. Ali he offered was sada woman, Wilder. Baron said Mr. Li Kumara, to lucky robot of care to him. Thank you all for joining in on this blessing day of this blessing hour of Yeoman Jumeirah. First and foremost, let's just start off by making Dora This is a blessed day for all of us. Some of you probably already finished your juwanna. For us here in this part of the world, we're about to start tomorrow, in about a half hour or so. We predict that a last panel would either lift this pandemic from us, it continues to persist, it continues to spread. And I don't know about you guys, I'm sure a lot of you
probably have this right. Have you noticed that? I don't know for the last little while.
More and more people that you know, are contracting the virus. And even more so more and more people that you either know you've heard of or you're connected with that have died from the virus. It's just It's as if this virus is caving in and closing in on every single one of us. Some kind of law May Allah help us May Allah give us strength? May Allah subhana wa Taala protect us May Allah subhanho wa Taala lift this pandemic from us alone. I mean, it is really frightening. It is really scary. And nobody can, you know, shy away from that or even saying that this is a serious as it gets, and it continues to spread. And then when you think that it couldn't get any worse than now we
have variants of the virus. Now we have different versions of this virus and it continues to spread and mutate. So I think now in Canada alone, we have about five different variants of this virus and other countries have more and less, a lot of them will stand alone. So which will help us and give us strength and give us protection Aloma mean, today, as you probably seen on the title of this video.
If you don't have proof, then just be quiet. So what is this talking about? I usually don't phrase my titles this way. I usually don't phrase it and be so blunt about it. But the verse that I'm going to talk about is a verse that I have spoken about in the past. I've used it in hopeless lectures, I actually, I've even taught a course just on this one verse. So it's a verse that I I enjoy talking about it and every time I speak on this verse, something new and different in terms of reflection and lessons pops into my mind. So let's see what happens. We've already talked about Yeah, you will let me know because of how the first two verses of the sort of began so we don't need to discuss
that now. Okay. Yeah, you let me know people have Amen. Here's the thing. One point. Remember we did say when an A A begins with yet you hola Xena? No, it means that you have to have at least an ounce of recognition of what the right thing is to do for you to capture the lesson or the message in that. Yeah, you have Latina Eminem, in jet accom. Whenever it is brought to you or it comes to jet, it means that it already arrived. It's already here. It's right in front of you. Not that it's on its way. Now this is going to talk about confirming assumptions, rumors, you know, talk, gossip, confirming whether or not those things are true, confirming whether or not these things that were
said or heard if they're actually true. So when we're talking about jet, it means that whatever news that people are talking about or involved in now that arrived in front of your face, now you're listening to it. So the first lesson in this area, actually the second lesson, yeah, you will Athena M and was the first lesson you need to have at least the ability to recognize what is right and wrong to capture this. So Allah says Now the second thing is inject a comb that this news came and it confronted you. Now it becomes a problem. Now you should take it seriously. You know, it's one thing when we say to ourselves that people always talk about us. People are always out there.
spreading rumors. I for one, I'm subject to that all the time. You know, when you do this kind of work, you're always the subject of rumors and gossip and things like that, right? So it comes with the territory. Allah is saying, it's one thing when you sit there and you become like the gossip police and you walk around. Hey, I heard you talk to me, have talked about me. Hey, I heard you talked about me. I heard you said something about me. I heard that you were there. So you had to be you talk to me. You talked about me. I just don't like you. So you probably talked about me as well. And we do this a lot, right?
In Jacome, Allah is saying, if you're going to tackle this right, then the first thing you need to do is you need to confront what confronts you.
You need to confront what confronts you. Otherwise, you don't have time for hearsay. You don't have time to be involved in other people's gossip. Because our Prophet Ali's Southwest, told us that people who backbiting gossip, their day their their good deeds are shifted over and given to the person they're talking about. So consider yourself, you're actually in a pretty good position, when somebody does that about you wrongfully, unjustly unfairly trying to smear your name, your reputation, or what have you, then their good deeds are being shifted over to you, and you are being rewarded for them without actually performing any of them. And in the second lesson, now that this
news or whatever is being said about you is in front of your face, jet is also whatever's in front of you, you now address it, it captures your attention. So you can be busy with anything else. But now that it's here, now that you've heard what people are saying, Now they've gotten your attention, or really they said that a really, you were there, huh? That's what people are talking about. That's what they think of me. That's what they said. That's what was that's what's being spread. So you start now, delving into, you know, digging in deeper and deeper. What's this all about?
Here's the next lesson in jet accom. Fast, fast ship is the heart of this.
The word fast ship is the heart of this entire verse number six, facet comes from the word fish spawn. Fish spawn inherently corrupt,
fast sukoon people who spread corruption. They're the corrupt ones in society, they're the corrupt ones in our communities. The corrupt one, Allah says, the person who's bringing this kind of news to you.
It's It's unbelievable. A LOOK call that person facet.
Or that's one way of looking at it right? First way of looking at it is the person who brought you this news, Alissa's, that's somebody who's really messed up, they're corrupt.
Or the person who's actually doing this stuff was actually the source of the gossip. He's the one here she's the one that started it. And that came he or she came in front of you, then they're corrupt. So it one is could either be referring to the actual news being spread, regardless who's saying it. Or number two, it's the actual person who started it. They came to you and be like, Yeah, man, I think you're this or that, or I told people you were this or that. Point is gossip. There's nothing good about it.
Allah calls the person who carries news. wrongfully fast sip, is also if you can imagine somebody, if you can imagine you put a fruit, okay? And you leave it on a table for a few days, eventually, it starts to decay and rot. Right?
facet also highlights that you do nothing about the situation you just ignore and leave alone. So if you hear something that people are saying, and you don't question it, which you hear that from, really, I never heard that before. Are you serious?
Who told you that? Okay, well, where did they get that from? Because that's not true. If somebody comes to you and be like, Yeah, I heard that.
This is so and so's getting a divorce. So and so is getting a divorce. And you look at them and you're like, I just saw them outside the other day. look pretty happy laughing they were together. I just saw them at the movies the other day. I just saw them going to the park the other day and just saw we talked about Yeah, they're getting a divorce. Who told you that? And you start digging in and digging in and digging in. That's all the complete opposite opposite of a facet, the facet what they do. I heard somebody heard that couples gonna get divorced. Really? Even though I saw them so happy even though you just got married last week. Wow, this is crazy. Did you hear somebody gonna get
divorced. Now we all know the game telephone tag. This is
Like the Quranic version of telephone tag, you know, one person said, Yeah, I heard someone was getting divorced, heard someone still getting divorced. First person tells the second second tells the third by the time it reached the fourth or the fifth person, here's what the News is. I heard so and so assassinated their spouse after they got divorced and ran away, drove in their car. And now they're in Mexico.
here thinking, Wow, that's a facet.
When no one took the time to address the problem, they'll allow the gossip to decay and further decay.
They allowed the news to just continue. And so what was a tiny little mole now expanded into the size of a mountain, it became a massive problem.
Why is this such a problem?
You know, somebody could say, well, you know, who cares? Whatever. Yeah, I mean, I'm just talking about about whatever you know, it's true. Why is this such a problem?
Because it only takes one rumor and one person to destroy your name,
your reputation, the reputation of your family, relatives, it only takes one rumor to destroy it all.
That's why this is such a big deal. That's why Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights this problem in one exclusive verse in and of itself. And you know, something,
it is number six in the surah how many verses are in this sorta 18.
Which means that this is one of the early sentences of the sutra, which also means this is a priority issue for Allah subhana wa Taala. The news carrier,
the person who is the news carrier is one problem. But the people who are listening to that stuff and continue to spread it is even a bigger problem. Why? Because if you now come under the category of the facet, somebody who is not just inherently corrupt, but it's spreading corruption everywhere. And this a,
it highlights that to teach you an eye. Look, if you don't know for sure, if you don't have proof, just be quiet.
And that's our reaction. So how do you stop this? The next time you hear news about anything or anyone and it isn't verified, then what you need to do is you say to the person, so where'd you hear that from? And they're like, Oh, no, I just heard it. Somebody was just telling me, and you say to them, you know, just Just be quiet. Get out of my face, man. I don't want to hear that. Don't Don't tell me anymore. Doesn't matter. Shut down the conversation immediately. Just shut it down. Stop it.
That's where the problems begin. Because the problems start when this is not stopped. I mean, we're human beings. And a lot of us just love juicy gossip. We love juicy information, even at the cost of potentially hurting smearing and destroying someone's presence, reputation, their name, you name it, even at that cost. So how am I God? I can't believe I knew that I can't believe I heard that. Oh, my God, nobody else knows this. And it's very tempting when somebody confides into you about something very personal. And if you don't, it's very tempting to share that. They'll say to you, just don't tell nobody I really trust you is a secret between you and I.
And then I'll still don't share the secret with you. Then two or three days you like, oh, man, I just need to tell somebody. So you're like, Okay, let me just tell my wife. Let me just tell my husband. Give me just tell my eldest son who prays in a Masjid a lot because they know he's not going to take it elsewhere. I know he's not going to spread it. So you just got to get it off on my Did you hit someone so just came and told me bla bla bla bla bla bla, you have just become the fezzik.
In Ally's eyes, you are corrupt.
You know, what is also mind boggling about this.
Is this has become such a culture and a norm in life.
How do you teach someone that this is wrong? Can you teach them?
How do you how do you explain versus like this in 2021? You know, it's just like the example that I always give. How do you tell young kids about beware leading, being good to parents, when everything that surrounds them, encourages them and influences them that they don't need to listen to or respect parents because it's your life. You can do whatever you want. Case
Close. You know, once upon a time, you could tell and probably for a lot of us listening to this, when you were growing up cluding myself, when your parents said something, you just did it. Now you have to find logical ways and explain and thoroughly validate why you should be good to the two individuals that raised you and to the woman that birthed you, that almost died giving birth to you. Now you have to explain why you should be nice to her Subhana Allah. Now you have to figure out ways to explain why you shouldn't talk about people, especially when you have information that isn't even confirmed. You don't even know for sure if that's the problem, but you're still gonna go and spread
this stuff, and you're destroying that person's name the next time they walk into that workplace to that school, and it happens all the time into that question. Everybody's gonna be looking Okay, that's the person that can look at him look at the cow she look out here she walks Oh, my god, they're coming to sit right beside us Gatti. I don't want to sit beside him. I don't wanna be associated with a rumor. You just like, and when people who find out that this is the rumors that have been spread, this is what people have been saying about me? How do you think they feel, I'm never going to go to that mistake again. I'm never going to talk to her again. I'm never going to go
to that place. Again. I want to quit my job. They go into like severe depression, stress, you name it, some of them even become suicidal. How did all of this start? Because somebody decided to spread a rumor about that person. And that's one thing that could have been stopped right then and there. But what was even more guilty, was everybody that heard the rumor, continued to spread it.
You know, it's kind of like a spiritual version of COVID-19.
If we, you know, if we were to contain the virus where it began, let's just say, you know, per se that we knew and we understood exactly where it came from, or where you know, initiated from and all of that, and you contain the virus, then then there would have never turned into a pandemic. But for some, for whatever reason, and however it happened, the virus touched one person and that person touched the other person. And you know, on the news, they're like, this thing is spreading pretty quickly. It's a really contagious virus. Be careful wash and nobody's listening to that. It's kind of what's happening now we're forced into lockdown. We're here in Toronto, we're in a state of
emergency, we're supposed to be at home. Lots of people are still inviting people home. I hear this stuff all the time. Even I from time to time we'll get invited to people's homes, weddings and things like that. You're just like,
you're Don't you see how serious this is. So the virus continues and it spreads and spreads and spreads and before you know and now it's out of control and it's hurting and it's killing people all across the globe. In the spiritual sense, that's what gossip does. Gossip is like the spiritual version of COVID-19
alows not done yet.
Allah then says Be never in.
In Java so we're done with the word fast sip now we come be never in a London say be hubbardton harbor is news is this information hub It is also like headline news. You know when you when you turn on the local news channel and it says breaking news that's called hubbub never in is everything else. Never in is also news that came from a far distance. NET berry bed DLS says call upon my server servants. Never own is when you shout out. Hey, you, you guys over there? Hey, hey, you're shouting at somebody that's not a far distance that's called Neverland.
even if this information came
from another country, another family another place, nowhere near you. What do you do?
So this immediately highlights the rumors are not just within your close proximity or within your vicinity. Like it's, it could come from anywhere.
And if you hear it even uses unbelievable, never in also entails even if you just like watch a YouTube video of somebody who made this video and they're in another side of the planet, but they put this video on YouTube. And you clicked play and you're listening. Oh my god. Ah.
Wow, that's what COVID can do. It's all political. It's just a hoax. It's not even real. It's in my cell phone. It's the 5g network, oh my god.
And then you take never, never own. And now you pass it along. And it goes back right to the beginning. So Allah is saying, even if it's something that you think is far fetched,
Nobody near you is going to be affected by nobody's going to care. A lot cares, a lot highlighted. So even the videos that we watch, and we get certain kinds of information from those WhatsApp feeds that come that those WhatsApp videos that are always sent about this is what's gonna happen this is all of us who are listening to this remember, in the year 2019 99 remember what was happening just before it turned 2000 it was supposed to be the end of the world. And I remember I had to lecture about this a few times and I have to tell people,
it is not the end of the world. It's not going to happen in 2000 Why? Because our Dean told us there are certain signs of the day of judgment that will have to happen and many of those signs have not happened yet. So until they do this earth will continue and lo and behold when the year 2000 clicked in and we just waiting there what's gonna happen is there gonna be earthquake, I mean, some panel have even made movies about this stuff. And life just went on like two three days left, just went on people will go into the banks before pulling out hundreds of $1,000 clearing out there money sealing up their their homes, and just life kind of went on.
That's never in. You're not verifying this stuff. You're not confirming them. So stop spreading this nonsense. This is what Allah subhanaw taala is telling and if you continue to spread it, then you're a fast step in the sight of Allah
for to obey you. So what do you do now the Kabbalah guides us to heal this problem. fetta Bejarano begginer bayona means to clarify, bring clarity to the issue. So first obiano is you literally digging deeper and deeper asking more and more questions. Where do you hear that from? Is this true? If you hear something about some sort of medical breakthrough on how to cure Coronavirus like, you know, comb your hair a certain way eat this thing, drink this thing stand up do this exercise. Corona will never touch you. Tibet, you know, as you ask. I mean, you to some extent that example I just showed you, you can use your common sense. But
aside from that, you ask experts, Is this true?
You know, if I really eat this or drink this, I'll be immune to the Coronavirus. And the experts will say no, no, no, no. That's not a way works. This is how the virus behaves. This is how it mutates. This is how it spreads. This is this and they start explaining everything to Nicole okay. You just now stopped yourself from being counted as a facet. You stop spreading never own. Like you've fulfilled everything all because you did one thing was that you just took the time to confirm what you were hearing or what you were listening to. And once you did that, you're eliminated from this a you know, the SE does not doesn't speak to you anymore. At hamdulillah. Everybody's happy.
Eventually that video or that news? You heard people will be like, yeah, we already talked to doctors. Yeah, we already talked to him. They're not getting a divorce. It was just a rumor done with it, leave it alone. And then you squash it. Case closed. Tip No.
But then the A concludes Fatah Bay, you know, and to Cebu, Coleman beach ohana, that you're going to eventually afflict a nation ignorantly, unjustly, unfairly without thinking through. In other words, Allah is saying,
you need to confirm your knowledge. And you need to have proof of things before you smear and destroy not just a purse, a person, but you could destroy an entire nation of people just by this rumor. So you need to make sure
don't we? Doesn't that sound like 2021?
How many minorities out there their reputation just because of perhaps their color? what we think we know about their history, what we think we know about their country, their culture, their political situation. And we spread this stuff and be like, yeah, that country don't ever go there because the people are blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. They've got their countries distances in this, they'll treat you this way. That way. A prime example of that is Saudi Arabia. There's so many awful things people say about Saudi Arabia. And I don't disagree that every single country has their problems. But what you rarely hear about is all of the good and the higher. Saudi Arabia, Medina Mecca right
now. I mean, we can go there now. Who knows when we will get a chance to go and revisit. But I happen to visit the last time was just back in February and 2020. Yeah, February 2020. So I went there just recently just before the pandemic began,
and I lived there for 10 years. I was born there in Medina and I went back and I looked around and every year I just couldn't believe it.
How much more facilities there were more hotels more accommodation, it just becomes easier and easier. Now Hajj is literally one of the easiest, easiest rituals. And back in the days, boy in the 19, like early 90s, and so on, and even further than that, man, it was like life and death. So much higher, there's so much good pay attention to that stuff.
Pay attention to those things. Don't lose sight of them. That's what Allah says. Because if you don't until Cebu Omen BG Allah you're going to smear and destroy, ignorantly, without even knowing you're doing it, Jeff, when is when you lose focus and you lose concentration of your emotions, you lose sight of that. So you just start running your mouth. And you don't have any clue what you're doing to these people. You know, when I think about when I read this area, this part of the I think about comedians, when they'll make fun of like blacks, when they'll make fun of like Hispanics, they'll make fun of certain races and cultures. And then people are laughing that head off. And but
one can say, well, that's just for jokes, man. It's just for comedy, like relax. The problem is, is that if you listen to that stuff over and over enough, then you start convincing yourself. Actually, they are like that.
When you see something that you heard a comedian make fun of. And you see the actual person or people doing that thing to be like, Oh my God, they are like this. They are crazy. There are that. And you've just now added to that comedian and what he or she said, and now that's how the culture is born. That's how the problem expands. And now it becomes a bigger issue. That's what until Siebel, Coleman, BJ Harada. And then a look and clues and we conclude photos before imfl to demean you're then eventually going to be somebody that is in complete and total regret because of what because of what you just randomly did five to Allah didn't say I'm able to fine tune is random
actions. And I'm Ella or I'm alone is an action that has an intention and goal behind it. That's not what I was saying here. Unless it Phantom, then you're just going to start thinking about it. And you're going to regret of all the crazy nonsense you just randomly did without thinking. without having any concern and care for others. You just you ran your mouth. You spread those videos, that chain letter or emails, you just continued sending them without even taking the time to know if it was true or not. And that's how misinformation and get spread. That's what gives government's normally difficult time to have to clarify to spend 90 minutes instead of giving people direction,
clarifying that's not true. That's not true. That was a lie that was made up. That's and there's no research for that this is not the correct. And they spend their time having to do that. That's what they'll see how far I mean, you're just gonna sit there and be like, God, why did I do that? Why don't they just take the time to ask? Why didn't I just take the time to confirm Wyden I'd have any proof of what I said. Look at what I did to that family, I destroyed them. They don't want to come back to the masjid anymore. They don't want to come back to my house anymore. They don't even want to talk to me anymore. They they everything just fell apart. What was this a all about?
people who just, you know, run their mouths.
Just to destroy and put down someone else. Why?
It goes against everything Islam taught us. It goes against everything.
We're not supposed to hurt each other. We're not supposed to be. We're not supposed to spread rumors and gossip about each other. We're not supposed to do that stuff. And if you are somebody that finds comfort or sees there's no problem with that, as long as it's not happening to you. And I hate to say it, but you're a facet,
the so called you have so you're a corrupt individual, not just in society, but in the sight of Allah. Stop carrying news, especially when it's not proven. And even if it was proven is the last thing I'll leave you with inshallah, even if it was proven, that still doesn't give you the right to continue to spread and be like, Yeah, I know for sure it happened. Okay. Even if it was sure even if you've done it, and it was for sure it was confirmed, still doesn't give you the right to continue to smear and spread that knowledge because it's private. It's private. Nobody likes to be talked about. And why do I say that? Because our profit tallies so it was sent out called that back
backbiting. Even if you're telling the truth,
even if you're telling the truth, and the Sahaba when they heard the Prophet seven forbidding they even asked him you know, sola even if we're telling the truth because even if you're telling the truth
Don't spread it, because why the person you're talking about isn't there. And even if you're telling the truth, they may not like it. And a prime example of this is if she told you, she's pregnant. She's your best friend. And she said, Look, you know, I'm two weeks pregnant. But don't tell anybody. Okay, I just I want to keep it private. For now. It's between me my husband, but you're my best friend when I just tell you, okay, fine. You go and you tell somebody and you're like, well, that's the truth, everybody's eventually gonna find out your professor?
Because why? The person told you not Yeah. They told you don't, even if it's the truth, she has her reasons why she didn't want anybody to know about her pregnancy that early. You were supposed to respect it and be quiet, you didn't. Now the friendship could be jeopardized. If she ever finds out, you were the one that said it. The relationship is jeopardized. And then before you know it,
people will start to develop this idea that okay, when you're pregnant, then you don't mention it to anybody or you don't speak to certain individuals about it. See how see how the culture gets developed. If you don't talk to those kinds of people, because I did it once. And she still went and she spent so just stay away from them. The culture is born. And that's how it become and it just continues to expand and Bumble Subhana Allah, this verse is really really powerful man. So panel, I really just, I say this a lot about versus, you know, certain verses, but it's like one of those punch in the face versus right. Get your act together kind of verse, get your act together, and stop
spreading rumors, especially when you have no proof of them. Whether it's in a digital form, whether you're verbalizing it, it doesn't matter just stop spreading information that concern people or the well being of people. And there's no confirmation or no proof of that. May ally so which will help us give us strength. May Allah subhanho wa Taala purify our hearts, purify our tongues, Aloma I mean, tomorrow in sha Allah, we continue with the next verse. A couple more verses actually, we'll take a few verses for tomorrow's session in sha Allah, Allah. Take care everyone and mail line. So Joe bless you with all of the blessings of Yeoman Kumar. I don't say drama Mubarak. I don't
encourage anybody to say tomorrow Mubarak. I honestly feel like there is no purpose behind the phrase jumar Mubarak. There is nothing blessing about the phrase Juma Mubarak the Baraka and blessing of Juma comes with the Juma itself number two with additional scout and worship number three sending Salaam to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and doing all of the sudden acts of a Juma which is of course reciting sotell calf and all of those things okay, so just keep that in mind. So male lions that will bless you and take care of your body and I will see you tomorrow be is de la hytera Allah was salam wa Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
