For the students online Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Allah He afterall, Salah woman, whether another ad Salam or aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu. Welcome to Session Two of our journey through the thematic study of SUTA tenore. And as you can see in front of you and on your screens, we are concluding this conversation of shutaura, the Allahu Arnhem, but even more so highlighting some of the lessons that you and I could take and at least reflect on and

00:32:17--> 00:33:03

utilize in our own lives. That's the goal behind all of the knowledge that we look at and we go through is that we don't want to just fill our brains with just more and more information, but we want to be able to take some of that information, or at least most of it, and utilize it in some way. So when I shut out of the ALA Farinha, before the sada when we discussed how she handled her name, being gossiped and talked about all throughout the city of Medina, one of the lessons that you and I capture from that is, it doesn't matter what level of piety or Islam or knowledge or status you have, you're always subject to these kinds of rumors, and these kinds of tests, but more so

00:33:03--> 00:33:47

what's important is that you look at how companions like a shutaura do love Arnhem, how they handle this stuff, they never got involved in the gossip. They never got involved. And this is why for students online, a very important principle in our [???]tier, you confront what confronts you, because you don't have time to go around and figure out what people are saying or not saying about you. It's a waste of time, unless you're into gossip, that that's a different story. And that's a sickness in the heart. And that's a weakness of Eman which we're going to see here shortly. So, very quickly, this is where we paused. Before we get into the next section. We also discussed that it was

00:33:47--> 00:34:10

Abdullah ignore, obey, which was the one of the most famous amongst the hypocrites in the mafia point of Medina. He was known to do this even though he became Muslim later on before he died. He was known to do this kind of thing, not just with Aisha but many of the other companions. And of course, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. You know, in every community.

00:34:11--> 00:34:12

There's always that one person,

00:34:14--> 00:34:18

every community, there's always that one person you got to watch out for.

00:34:19--> 00:34:59

And it doesn't matter where you are, doesn't matter if it's here or any other part of the world. Just always that one person that's got to ruin it for everyone else. So in Medina, matching you have the Prophet of Allah you would think like they would just be him and a bunch of angels everywhere. Even though there were angels, you have the greatest companions, you still have the child teen amongst them. The started this rumor, and this is what started the whole process to begin with. This was a really big deal. And the answer to this is right at the bottom where you see there, the dignity of I thought of Your Love on Her

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

The dignity of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. Again, another principle in our [???]ty

00:35:07--> 00:35:10

spouses represent each other

00:35:11--> 00:35:33

wife represents her husband, a husband represents his wife, especially when it comes to etiquettes. If you meet somebody you meet anybody all, you know, husband or wife. And if your first impression isn't good, or you sense like this bit of attitude from that individual, immediately what ends up happening, you immediately start to think cod,

00:35:34--> 00:35:36

you're probably all the same.

00:35:37--> 00:35:47

She's talking to me like this, or if he's acting this way with me, then probably the rest of his family is like this. So even more so without a shadow the Allah on him.

00:35:48--> 00:35:59

The responsibility is even more so for her because she is the wife of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:36:01--> 00:36:10

So let's get into the verse Now that addresses all of us listening to how SUTA to know addresses gossip. Okay, so this is our new lesson for today moving forward.

00:36:11--> 00:37:00

The title of this area is the experience was actually a good thing. So that whole experience with the rumor and everything else was actually a good thing for Asia, as well as the Companions and everyone else involved. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the ladina Jaya or bill if ki arose but Tim min come later several shoulder level well, who are Hyrule Lacan, those who came up with the right with the outrageous slander that's off the truth. Okay, so that's the first group those who made up this line. What Allah does is he calls this group just going to go to the next I'll go back to it in a second everybody see the second bullet, or Elsebeth arose by means of group or again, we saw this

00:37:00--> 00:37:07

name or this word before, does anybody know what Soto what Surah Do you remember the word or Elsebeth?

00:37:09--> 00:37:12

When normal SMA in Urbana feel Bala removing

00:37:14--> 00:38:02

Surah Yusuf. Very good. Our osoba is also used several times and saw that use of to describe the brothers who ganged up on Yusuf Ali Salaam and did what they did. Now the plotted against him, they threw him into the well, and so on and so forth. Allah calls those who accused Russia he called them like a gang They ganged up on her. We have lots of our osoba in our communities, don't we? We have lots of pockets of people who spread gossip, and talk about people all the time, all day long. I say this all the time, even if the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was amongst us, there will always be that group that will even talk about him and gossip about him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which

00:38:02--> 00:38:39

tells you that gossip is not just a sin or terrible thing. It's evil. Like it's evil in its nature. It's an evil quality that any human being can possess. And these are some of the consequences behind it. We under we already discussed what the word if is, if we mentioned let me go back, see it there. The last bullet? If when you swerve off the right direction, you're going the right way. And you just decide that out of curiosity, let me just take this exit. Let me take this turn and see where it goes. That's called if.

00:38:41--> 00:38:43

So they came with if

00:38:44--> 00:38:45

one more point.

00:38:46--> 00:38:50

Does anybody know what the Arabic word for God symbol is?

00:38:51--> 00:38:52

Or backbiting?

00:38:53--> 00:38:55

What's backbiting in Arabic? We should all know that.

00:38:57--> 00:38:59

Mima or Zeba

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

look what Allah says. He didn't say in a Latina Jaya, will bill Bill riba or been Amina Allah called it if

00:39:09--> 00:39:12

really beautiful lesson I want you to note here.

00:39:13--> 00:39:24

The fact that Allah says this group that ganged up on Isha, they kind of swerved off the right direction they went the wrong way.

00:39:26--> 00:39:31

Incredible, beautiful. etiquettes even when you're dealing with people who are wrong,

00:39:33--> 00:39:34

Allah still

00:39:35--> 00:39:55

illustrates to us that there is a sense of dignity and etiquettes even when you're dealing with troublemakers. You don't fight fire with fire. Somebody is gossiping about you. You don't go and confront them and curse them head to toe and get into art. You don't do any of that stuff.

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

The believer refrains themselves from getting involved.

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

For stooping to that level as much as possible why? Because you're a believer, you're actually a mature person who possesses he men, you can do that stuff. You've got to refrain and protect yourself from reaching that level. So you have to possess a sense of respect and dignity for yourself. So Allah says that even though these people who ganged up on her were wrong, they kind of just went off the wrong direction. That's all

00:40:27--> 00:40:33

la taxable who shall reflect on this work at the title of this year from from this part of the A?

00:40:34--> 00:40:40

Allah then says They ganged up on you don't assume this tragedy is bad for you.

00:40:42--> 00:40:49

Does anybody know why? Or what? Why do you think Allah subhanho? wa Taala would say that?

00:40:51--> 00:40:51

Yeah.

00:40:54--> 00:41:06

To expose it, they're hypocrites. Okay. What else? Why would Allah highlight and explicitly say to you and I, don't you think for a moment that this is a bad thing?

00:41:08--> 00:41:11

Is there anybody on this planet that welcomes gossip?

00:41:13--> 00:41:32

That's comfortable with gossip? If you are, then there's a sickness in the heart. You know that individual has a problem. But naturally in the FITARA of a human being, the human inclination, how we are created our the purity of our soul, our faith, our Amen. Is that when we hear gossip,

00:41:34--> 00:41:36

it makes us uncomfortable.

00:41:37--> 00:42:22

We don't want to be around that stuff. Another sort Allah says, what you the material will be lovely Maru ki Rama when they hear craziness level, falsehood, craziness lies, gossip, you name it. The believer when they hear that stuff, Maru ki Rama, they walk by it, but they do it in a dignified and civilized way. They don't say to the people who are gossiping and walk by, you're all going to Johanna Mukesh LT masala, you don't do that. So Maru KERAMA, you still have a sense of respect and dignity for yourself. Allah says, Look, I know it's horrible. I know it's uncomfortable. But don't think that this experience that I allowed for you to go through is necessarily a bad thing. ballyhoo

00:42:22--> 00:42:24

a higher law come

00:42:25--> 00:42:28

back, but rather indeed it is good for you how,

00:42:30--> 00:42:37

how is my reputation being talked about and ruined and slandered and my character being slammed? How was that all good for me?

00:42:38--> 00:42:53

How am I supposed to find hire and good and all of that? Let's look at the verse liquid Limra in Minho, maktab. Amina, is Allah continuous, and he says, Every person amongst them received something noble from the evil.

00:42:54--> 00:42:59

Every person who went through this experience

00:43:01--> 00:43:20

received something noble from something that's terrible and bad. Give me an example. How do you get something good, something of nobility and character from a horrible bad experience? How do you do that? So let's use a gossip. For example. Tell me one good thing that comes out of gossip as a believer.

00:43:22--> 00:43:24

We've all been through gossip before.

00:43:25--> 00:43:35

I don't have to ask you. We've all been through it at some point. If you haven't, you're lucky because it's coming to you. At some point.

00:43:36--> 00:43:41

What's one good thing you can think of that would come out of that experience?

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

Think for a second.

00:43:45--> 00:43:46

Talk to me brothers.

00:43:49--> 00:43:52

That's a good thing that comes out of being talked about.

00:43:57--> 00:43:57

Go ahead.

00:44:02--> 00:44:03

Good,

00:44:04--> 00:44:14

so excellent. Start with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam say, when somebody back buycks, about you, or gossips about you, what do you get from the person who's gossiping about you?

00:44:15--> 00:44:17

You get all of their reward.

00:44:19--> 00:44:45

You get all of their reward. So the more they gossip and talk about you, the higher your scale of good deeds become. How do you get that reward though? You've got to follow these principles. You've got to hang in there. It's a tough pill to swallow. It's not easy. It requires a lot of strength, a lot of knowledge he meant but you have all of that. So you hold on to that stuff.

00:44:47--> 00:44:59

And that's how you attain the blessing or the higher that comes out of that experience. The culinary minimum accessible meaning if we're lucky Tala Kibera hoomin home level

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

doubling our old team.

00:45:02--> 00:45:17

And the one who took the brunt of it. So the leader of them all, Abdullah, even will be the one who started all of this, he will have for him, there's an exception, there's no good for him. Allah says for him, you will have left who either bone or lean,

00:45:18--> 00:45:29

you know, some of our scholars. So if you're writing notice down this area here at number 11. The conclusion, the fact that Allah singled out the accuser.

00:45:31--> 00:45:36

Some of our scholars say that the one who starts the rumor

00:45:37--> 00:46:00

is in the same position as Abdullah, obey, meaning there is specific punishment that awaits that individual, you started this rumor, you started the gossip, you're the perpetrator, you're the one that initiated all of this hundreds and perhaps 1000s of people now are talking about this person, or this family.

00:46:01--> 00:46:10

And it all went back to you that one individual level either born or holding, there is a specific punishment that awaits that individual.

00:46:12--> 00:46:32

Since a really, it's really devastating for someone who doesn't control the tongue and get themselves into that predicament. So the tragedy was an opportunity also for Allah to reveal a yet so that's another good that came out of this whole experience. Allah revealed more yet.

00:46:33--> 00:47:01

So that's amazing. So when I saw that the olive Arnhem is waiting for this situation to get under control, remember we said last week the Prophet Adi slug was Salam is also waiting for Allah to reveal to him how to handle all of this. So these IDs came down to kind of teach him and guide him how to do that. So this experience although it was what it was, it led to more a yet being revealed. So it's amazing. What's our version of that?

00:47:02--> 00:47:06

We're not going to get know yet revealed to us right. So what do we get instead?

00:47:07--> 00:47:34

We get the lessons the teachings of our deen brought to us. So when you handle a tough situation with dignity, with the men, you do it in a civilized manner. Allah gives you and flourishes, we flourishes to you more knowledge of this theme. Allah opens your heart more and more and more. This is why the Scholars have a very beautiful

00:47:35--> 00:47:41

statement when a student wants to learn their Deen

00:47:42--> 00:47:55

very beautiful state. This statement actually came from Imam Shafi Rahim Allah his mum. When Imam Shafi was going to Medina to study under Imam Malik or Hema Hola.

00:47:56--> 00:48:33

MSF, his mum said to him, to ilm, Min Ahmed he Public Enemy, go and learn from his etiquettes, his mannerisms, his conduct, the way he acts, the way he behaves. Go learn from that first before you take his knowledge. So good etiquette having a good heart is the gateway for knowledge to arrive. So if you find yourself that you take a bunch of courses, you listen to a bunch of lectures, you're on YouTube all the time, you're always engrossed in knowledge. But nothing is settling or resonating with you.

00:48:35--> 00:48:53

One of the ways to figure out what the problem is, is you check your etiquettes How are you with people? How do you act with people around especially in tough situations? How do you be somebody cuts you off on the road? What do you do? You want to murder them? Or you try to okay

00:48:55--> 00:48:56

are the biller human mesh I thought

00:48:58--> 00:49:14

that was a close call but I'm fine I'll let it go let it go. My bother you for a little while, but you let it go. Why? Because you have Amen. When you start handling life like that, knowledge of this Deen gets poured into you. Allah flourishes you with

00:49:16--> 00:49:19

the people who suffered are rewarded, which we've discussed.

00:49:21--> 00:49:42

Lola semirara to move on. If only when the believing men and the believing women thought well of each other. Don't forget this a this is an attitude changer for the believer. This a should change your attitude completely of how you deal with gossip in particular.

00:49:43--> 00:49:54

Allah says, had the believing men and women so the people of the men men and women thought well of each other when they heard the rumor.

00:49:55--> 00:49:58

What's usually the first reaction

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

when

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

someone hears a rumor.

00:50:02--> 00:50:05

It's usually first reaction. Really?

00:50:06--> 00:50:15

They actually did that. Oh, my God, I always thought he was so pious. I always thought she was so nice. I never knew she was shaitan.

00:50:18--> 00:50:39

Usually, you jump, usually the person jumps right into the gospel. This is saying no, wait, you believe her? Stop. Because if you are really someone of true, amen, then you would have thought well of the person. So really, this is how a believer is supposed to react when you hear gossip in all of its four.

00:50:41--> 00:50:44

Don't talk about that. Okay, yeah. Does that what they're saying? Okay.

00:50:45--> 00:50:46

I don't want to hear about it.

00:50:47--> 00:50:48

Leave me alone.

00:50:49--> 00:50:51

Don't talk about this again. Okay, stop.

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

That's this.

00:50:56--> 00:51:00

How much people in this day and age how many people do that?

00:51:02--> 00:51:20

This A is one of the toughest verses to teach in 2021. In this day and age, they say, just like parents, a lot about parents and respect to parents. Well, toughest lessons to teach in this day and age. Be nice to your parents. Why would they do that for me?

00:51:22--> 00:51:31

I had to live my life and make my own decisions and go through figuring things out. Apparently nothing for me. Diggs gave birth to me, that was a good to go now.

00:51:33--> 00:51:54

tough thing to teach this one here as well. Imagine telling somebody, hey, when you hear gossip, just think good about the person being talked about and leave it alone. That's what Allah is saying. These are some of the lessons that are really lost in this day and age. May Allah help us because it's also one of the signs of young PMS.

00:51:55--> 00:52:13

Also one of the signs of human PMS, that these kinds of problems will manifest themselves to an extent where when people try to counter them, you will actually look like the foreigner. People will think you're the weirdo What do you mean don't talk about them? What's wrong with you?

00:52:15--> 00:52:17

They'll think you something's wrong with you instead.

00:52:18--> 00:52:21

Allah says the meno and Minette

00:52:23--> 00:53:00

be enforcing him higher ah call who had that if comoving when they heard this rumor, and they said this is clearly an outrageous slander. That's what they should have said. So make sure you note me known and minute everybody see that believing men believing women Allah does not say in this area. Lola is similar to Moho ven Nell Muslim Muna. While mostly Matt, Allah didn't say Muslim here. He singled out Mortman every movement is a Muslim, but not every Muslim is movement. Does anybody know the difference between Muslim and movement? What is the difference? Shout it out to me.

00:53:01--> 00:53:04

What is the difference between men and Muslim?

00:53:08--> 00:53:09

Say again,

00:53:10--> 00:53:11

to

00:53:13--> 00:53:19

somebody repeated it's because of the mass but I don't want you to take it off. It's okay. Can somebody help her out? Just repeat it to me?

00:53:21--> 00:53:30

Good. So Mortmain is believer. Muslim is a Muslim. So what's the difference? What makes the two distinct and apart from one another?

00:53:35--> 00:53:36

Let me make this easy.

00:53:37--> 00:53:40

Muslim. On the outside.

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

Men right here.

00:53:45--> 00:53:50

I see the Muslim in all of you. I don't see the movement in any of you.

00:53:52--> 00:54:04

You see the Muslim in me, you can judge me by how I speak, how I act, how I dress how I conduct myself. What you can never judge is what's in my heart.

00:54:06--> 00:54:18

I can never judge what your intentions are. I can never judge your sincerity. But if I see you praying like a Ferrari, I can say you definitely need some help with your Salaat

00:54:19--> 00:54:32

if I see you when it's time for Salah, but you leave instead of staying, I can definitely say hey man, do you even pray? It's going on? You don't get to say to me, no, no. Don't judge me. I'm sincere. Well, I'm going to pray at home.

00:54:33--> 00:54:59

No. So you can judge each other on the outer shell. But the inner shell that's between you and Allah. That's a less territory. That's something exclusive with Allah. Allah will judge that. So that's why Allah says, a reflection of your Amen. Is that when you hear gossip, you take yourself out of it completely.

00:55:00--> 00:55:03

or think positive of the person being talked about.

00:55:04--> 00:55:30

So a couple of notes here if this wasn't your initial reaction, it means that you have weak. Amen. So gossip and those were involved in it. That is a reflection of weak faith. You have weak Eman if you're involved in this stuff so weakness of faith. Does anybody know why a weakness of Eman is a big deal? Because I do get Muslims from time to time who say to me just one second

00:55:32--> 00:55:33

just one thing.

00:55:34--> 00:55:47

Me Now okay, fine my Eman is our perfect what is just one area in my life that's that's need some help. But I pray I fast I do all of these things. They went and I made Hajj I like I'm still good.

00:55:49--> 00:55:57

Why is this area and weakness of faith? Why is this still a big deal? Any weakness of faith in any aspect of your life? Why is that a problem?

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

Brothers, what do you think? You're gonna call I'm gonna call this call my gen as a corner.

00:56:06--> 00:56:15

Say something. Anything? What do you think? Why do you think having weak he meant in any part of your life is a big deal.

00:56:19--> 00:56:19

Said again.

00:56:21--> 00:57:04

Very good. Very good. To take the whole the religion as a whole. You think of a weakness of faith. Like if you get a scratch or a cut on your body somewhere? Do you just say oh, well, I'm not going to put a bandaid on it, what's going to happen to it'll continue to hurt, it might get infected. So then it'll start to cause other problems. And before you know it now from a scratch or a cut, now you're dealing with other issues, you got to go to the doctor you might have to get medication. That's your weakness of amen. If one area is weak, it will ultimately affect other areas. So if this part of your life is weak gossip,

00:57:05--> 00:57:10

I can guarantee you you will lose concentration in all of your Sala

00:57:12--> 00:57:30

you will start to gossip about the people you thought you would never gossip about your parents your children will get involved in this and that's when shy up Shayateen own new which we're coming to that area today. How shale teen own you

00:57:31--> 00:57:51

what has to happen we're going to look at a verse today promises versus just out of this world how shaitan traps an individual and it's a step by step guide which we'll come to a little later so don't my point here is don't trivialize any weakness of even in any part of your life. It didn't stop the rumor from spreading.

00:57:52--> 00:57:58

So even though you thought good of it doesn't necessarily stop it. But

00:58:00--> 00:58:27

me rephrase that. If you think good about that individual you could be the reason that the gossip stops but you're with me so it comes to you it went to 500 different people and then it came to you and you're like, man, leave me alone. I don't want to hear about that. Don't talk about that. That whole room or could have stopped right there thanks to you because of your Amen. You stood up and you thought well of the other person. Only a true believer does this.

00:58:28--> 00:59:07

Lola Joe already be out to bury tissue. If they came with four witnesses. If they don't come with witnesses they are in the sight of Allah true liars. Remember what they accused Russia or the Allah on her remote what they accused her for right? She walks in with this Sahabi this man so the rumor was spread that you know will either be I don't even want to say the words on you know, behalf of our mother. I showed her the Aloha now but you get the point right? So less as if we even gave the benefit of the doubt they didn't even have any witnesses to it to begin with. So they're still

00:59:08--> 00:59:18

they're still human Kathy boo and they're still in the sight of Allah liars. So they lose either way. When hola Fabiola here Alikum warahmatu.

00:59:19--> 00:59:22

Didn't see this verse in last week's session.

00:59:23--> 00:59:27

While hola Remember, I told you what Lola is? What is Lola?

00:59:28--> 00:59:31

Every time you see Lola What did I say to you this representative? yep

00:59:36--> 01:00:00

yeah, like a threat. If it wasn't for my kindness, boy. You don't know what I would have done to you. That's that's poor anyway, that's Allah's way of saying that. If it wasn't for My Mercy, you hold man, you're so lucky. You don't know what I would have done to you how it would have destroyed you. Were Lola, don't ever forget it. Now, this is the second time we're seeing this the first time we

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

cite when somebody committed a crime against the body zinna now we're seeing it when someone commits a crime against their tongue gossip. So Allah says, had it not been for the favors of Allah and His mercy for doing well, here's the extension that wasn't in the previous one. Allah says, if it wasn't for His favors and mercy in this world

01:00:28--> 01:00:30

and the Hereafter,

01:00:31--> 01:00:40

lemme second FEMA have hopped on fee here as a general theme, because of what you had laid out, there would have been great punishment on you.

01:00:42--> 01:00:46

This here adds another layer of this conversation of gossip,

01:00:47--> 01:00:57

Allah added in this area in the dunya, as well as in the earthhero. That's because that's because gossip continues even after your death.

01:00:59--> 01:01:22

Just because the person who people are talking about dies, doesn't mean the gossip is stops, it continues to affect them even in the effort. And even the person who is spreading the gossip. If they die, it doesn't mean okay, they're not going to get punished now for the gossip that they started. Because everybody that they spread the gossip to,

01:01:24--> 01:01:31

they're going to get compensation of the punishment in their grave. So Allah says in the dunya, as well as in the US,

01:01:33--> 01:01:37

but everything that you know about the consequence of gossip,

01:01:38--> 01:01:41

Allah still says, then if you only knew

01:01:42--> 01:02:04

I held back, I held back on you. If it wasn't for my virtue, and might kindness towards you, in this world and in the Hereafter, I let you wake up after you spread those rumors. I let you go to the messy I let you talk to people after you spread those, I still let you survive. If it wasn't for the

01:02:05--> 01:02:17

Lemis second female I fought them. There would have been a great, great punishment on that individual. So this is a direct threat to those who spread gossip.

01:02:19--> 01:02:20

Any questions?

01:02:22--> 01:02:51

Do you see what sort of the note is doing is pretty serious. It's taking day to day habits that people have and literally extracting and highlighting them all over again. It's like Hello. You've been going on for quite some time with this habit. Now you need to just stop and assess these habits that you've had all these years or months or what have you. You need to stop because look what it is in the sight of Allah

01:02:54--> 01:02:55

do you guys think gossip will ever stop?

01:02:59--> 01:03:01

Yeah, probably not.

01:03:02--> 01:03:05

So instead of trying to stop it or prevented

01:03:06--> 01:03:08

prep yourself on how to cope and deal with it.

01:03:10--> 01:03:12

Should I say it or not? It's this

01:03:13--> 01:03:25

is Tyler Kona who will be at Siena T co Matakohe Luna BF where he Kamali? Sarah can be here and what AXA buena who Hanaa well who are in the LA heroes team, when you

01:03:27--> 01:03:31

when you're when you allow it to reach your tongues. By the way.

01:03:33--> 01:03:41

We started at a at number 11. We're at n number 15. We're still not done about gossip.

01:03:44--> 01:04:15

When ever remember this whenever you see an accumulative amount of a yet on one subject. So in this case, gossip, but in another sort of you might see 10 verses about orphans. You might see 11 verses on the moon article, you might see 20 verses about Taqwa. When you have that many verses that address one topic, what does that tell you about that topic in the sight of Allah?

01:04:16--> 01:04:54

What does that tell you about that topic? It's a big deal. It's really important. Like these topics here, why they're being why you're going on and on about them. verse after verse. This is major in the sight of Allah. So you as an NIH as students, I don't want you to take this lightly, because why we're all involved in these eight in some way, shape, or form. We all are exposed to these kinds of things on a day to day basis. So you've gotten a couple of things so far. Number one, when you hear gossip as a believer, what do you do?

01:04:55--> 01:04:56

What do you do?

01:04:57--> 01:04:59

Stop it, cut it off.

01:05:00--> 01:05:04

Stop the gossip or the rumor from spreading beyond you.

01:05:05--> 01:05:07

How do you do that? Don't get involved.

01:05:09--> 01:05:11

You'll be surprised

01:05:12--> 01:05:17

how less you would find yourself speaking in general, when you do that.

01:05:18--> 01:05:48

You'll be shocked. When was the last time I said a word. Last time I had a conversation with God. Because this is what the society and culture of the world in which we live in today. This is what it revolves around. Now look what Allah is gonna say to us. Look how gossip is dissected, step by step check. This i is telep Kona, who BL Cinetic. And when you allow that to reach your tongue, not when you said you allow the gossip to get into your mouth.

01:05:50--> 01:06:08

There's nothing here about speaking yet. That's coming afterwards. The first thing that Allah is paying attention to, is you consider to gossip. That's a big, that's a big crime in the sight of Allah. The fact that you consider to talk about it would you haven't actually said anything?

01:06:09--> 01:06:12

The Gossip was just at your mouth.

01:06:13--> 01:06:19

The next phase if that if it didn't stop there, so So how does this look like? You hear gossip?

01:06:21--> 01:06:22

You want to say but

01:06:23--> 01:06:48

you hold back immediately. That's your first initial reaction. So you didn't even allow it for you to sort of gather words to respond, you didn't allow them. So your email now is an autopilot. Whenever you hear this kind of, you know, rubbish. You don't even you don't even take it on. That's how you stop it from reaching your mouth. But if that doesn't happen, look what happens next. What telco Luna be a flat Hiko.

01:06:49--> 01:06:52

And you're saying with your mouths.

01:06:53--> 01:06:58

So then this was the next step. Now they started saying So you heard it.

01:06:59--> 01:07:17

And instead of stopping at that moment, the natural consequences you're gonna get involved. Both of the steps how minute the first one is, it's still a major problem in the sight of Allah. What's up, oh, Luna, before he come, then they started seeing the stuff from their mouths.

01:07:19--> 01:07:24

And they lay Salah can be hearing, that's usually what gossip is right? stuff you don't know anything above.

01:07:25--> 01:07:50

You have no knowledge about the situation. You don't know what was happening with AI issue. You just saw her walking into Medina, and people just started talking about it. You don't know what was happening prior to that. You don't know if she was in any trouble. Nobody even thought to themselves. Maybe the sahabi saved her from something. Maybe she got sick, maybe she got injured. Nobody even thought of that. Which is the natural reaction generally with gossip.

01:07:52--> 01:08:03

So Allah says this was a big problem because you didn't even think for a moment. Wait a minute. I don't know anything about the situation. Marriage is a real prime example of this by the way.

01:08:05--> 01:08:06

Marriage is a real prime example.

01:08:08--> 01:08:51

I don't know what it is. But when some people hear about a marriage problem, feel like they're entitled to some sort of internal intelligence report of what's happening in somebody's house. She she came to the masjid alone. Where's her husband? He came I haven't seen his wife in the last six months maybe maybe stop very common with marriages whether they're problems or not. People love to talk about other people's marriages. What's up oh Luna be FYI. He co mele Salah Combi in and then Allah continues, you are assuming it to be very light. But for Allah it is huge. It's significant, which is what we've been saying all along, right.

01:08:53--> 01:08:56

Do you guys like my image there? The guy gossiping. Okay.

01:08:57--> 01:09:00

Because do you guys like these images? Or should we stop that?

01:09:01--> 01:09:02

Is it haram?

01:09:04--> 01:09:19

Though we're coming to that, don't worry about the whole picture. And I'm doing all of this intentionally because it's leading to other subjects in the Surah. Those of you who studied with me before, you've never saw me pull out these pictures and these images and so on.

01:09:21--> 01:09:27

So it's all coming. They're all connected to some notes. So the Tang, you just kind of set it. That's

01:09:29--> 01:09:41

that's the first one if Telecom, OB and Cinetic. So if tele Kona is also you don't actually repeat it but you just said a word or two. So you hear gossip? You hear a rumor and you're like,

01:09:42--> 01:09:46

really? That's it? That's his telephone the whole Bell says

01:09:48--> 01:09:49

you let it find your mouth.

01:09:51--> 01:09:59

Oh my God. Are you serious? That's it telephone home Bell sweetie. That's a big deal for Allah don't even say anything. Just be like, no, stop. I don't want to hear it.

01:10:01--> 01:10:23

Full mouth so that's how I I framed it so you understand both stages of the AI. The first is you kind of safe but you don't. What's up? Oh, Luna before he come the second stage, that's when they just start running their mouth. So it went from really Are you serious? Oh my god. I knew she was like that because yesterday sorry she was at Jimmy's a bubble. He just kept going, going going.

01:10:26--> 01:10:27

Hey in

01:10:29--> 01:10:37

Malley say what I said Punahou hyena. Everybody see that word hyena? I don't have a pointer. I'm pretty sure I do. But I don't know how to use it.

01:10:41--> 01:10:43

Okay, no, I don't I don't know what I'm doing.

01:10:44--> 01:11:28

Okay, let's just go back. There's a word in there in the A Hagen. So here it is here. Third bullet. Hyun Hyun. They're just saying this stuff. And it's flowing out of their mouths like no big deal. Nobody's thinking twice. That's a tragedy for a person of Amen. When sin becomes fluent, comfortable, you'll feel it anymore. That's the biggest tragedy. That's the biggest tragedy for being Muslim and a believer when sin becomes comfortable, because it's really, really difficult to get out of that. Is it possible to live and speak without ever gossiping? Well, you guys think?

01:11:30--> 01:11:42

Do you think it's possible for you now, for us that we can live our lives? Forget about what you hear? You could live your life without ever gossiping about anyone else? Do you think you can do that?

01:11:47--> 01:11:48

Really.

01:11:51--> 01:11:52

You're doubting yourself?

01:11:54--> 01:11:54

Okay.

01:11:56--> 01:11:59

I wish I could ask all of you to repeat after me, but I think that'd be weird.

01:12:01--> 01:12:08

Yes, you can live without ever gossiping. It's not an impossible thing to do.

01:12:09--> 01:12:36

It sounds impossible because of how gossip has become such an enormous part of our culture. Our lives, you probably at this stage may think, has no way I can not gossip. I just it's going to be part of me somehow. You might be involved. You'll hear it for sure. But you don't have to repeat it or say it. It's very possible 100% It is possible. Does anybody know how?

01:12:38--> 01:12:39

Because you have what?

01:12:40--> 01:12:41

Because you have one.

01:12:43--> 01:12:44

That's what you meant is

01:12:45--> 01:13:23

get yourself out of that frame of mind that a man is just like the spiritual thing. Like I'm just crying insula now heavy man. No. He man shows up every step of your life. It shows up when you're in lineups, waiting for food, you're patient, you're calm. You're not trying to punch the person in front of you're behind you. And now that you're social distancing, you're following all these rules. You're you're doing your best because you need to line up and you're waiting for your turn. You're doing that not just because you're following the rules, but because also your Eman tells you stick to the rules. So your Amen kicks in the moment you want to say something? Oh, no, no, no, I

01:13:23--> 01:13:43

shouldn't say that. I have Amen. I gotta stop. This is highlighted in other suitors by the way where Eman is manifested into action and it's not just a spiritual thing. So little Baqarah verse number 177, Lacell Vera and Tuvalu. Hukam parallel machinery will moderate those of you who studied sorta Al Baqarah with me,

01:13:44--> 01:13:53

you should know this, where Allah says that when the Companions them got their own Qibla when we got our Tabler, the caliber

01:13:54--> 01:14:25

the first thing that Allah says is Don't you ever for a moment think that you attained righteousness just because you face the east or the west meaning your face towards Mecca or you face towards Jerusalem? Don't think that your righteous will that kenansville Roman M and a biller but true Amen. true righteousness is the one that has real amen. Amen in that A and sootel Bhakra is talking to a group of people who already have it so what is it low highlighting real Amen?

01:14:26--> 01:14:34

It shows up it's manifested in every part of your life when you're not praying you still have Amen

01:14:37--> 01:14:38

Thank you.

01:14:40--> 01:14:43

Okay, stepped up our game people. Everybody see that?

01:14:45--> 01:14:46

Okay, I like this.

01:14:47--> 01:14:51

Okay, so when I want to choose you, I'm going to point a laser right? And I won't do that.

01:14:53--> 01:14:59

I won't do that pointed at your face masks, right. For everyone online. I'll point this straight at the camera.

01:15:02--> 01:15:08

Is it possible to live it speak? You understand? Okay? This talk is blasphemy wall.

01:15:10--> 01:15:12

Allah is not done with gossip yet guys.

01:15:14--> 01:15:15

Allah has not finished.

01:15:16--> 01:15:18

Well, I will let you semirara to move

01:15:19--> 01:15:31

on to Mayo cooling Lana and attack LM OB Harada Subhanak has turned on our LD. Oh my, just when you thought it was real serious, it's gonna get more serious. Now.

01:15:32--> 01:15:39

Another layer, when you first heard it, we should have said it's not becoming of us to talk like this. So we've already talked about that.

01:15:41--> 01:15:53

How perfect you are. So the believer now when they're confronted with gossip, they say, Matt Subhana Allah, listen to the difference. The a SS Subhana.

01:15:54--> 01:15:55

Net Subhana Allah,

01:15:57--> 01:15:59

the believer out of regret,

01:16:01--> 01:16:03

immediately just turn to Allah and panic.

01:16:04--> 01:16:26

The CAFR Subhan neck, you're talking directly to Allah Subhana Allah is you're speaking in third person Subha neck, you're talking directly to him. So these believers went straight into Dora when they realize Whoa, I almost said I almost said something I should. They went straight into DUA

01:16:27--> 01:16:28

and they said Subhanak

01:16:30--> 01:16:33

This is a huge aggressive accusation

01:16:34--> 01:16:43

that I would be accused of doing or saying anything like this. This is a huge Do you know how Subhan Allah is used in the Quran?

01:16:45--> 01:16:47

When a Subhanallah used

01:16:49--> 01:16:49

there, you know

01:16:54--> 01:16:56

Schilke Yeah.

01:16:57--> 01:17:10

Subhana Subhan. Allah is used in the poor and always to denounce when someone commits shirk. When somebody associates with Allah, the myth, the biggest crime in Islam.

01:17:12--> 01:17:20

Allah uses Subhan Allah and the same Subhan Allah is used when ALLAH is talking about gossip.

01:17:22--> 01:17:44

Unbelievable. So we're talking about different layers prior, this is like the peak Now Allah is saying, you know how, when somebody commits shark, if you walk by and you see somebody prostrating to a statue, or you see a bunch of these statues in front of a, you know, place of worship somewhere, you're driving here like Subhan, Allah,

01:17:45--> 01:17:51

Allah protect me from that. That's actually the same attitude you're supposed to have when you hear gossip.

01:17:53--> 01:18:06

So another way for you to handle when you hear gossip, is instead of like, don't talk to me Don't say that. Just say so kind of. I want to hear about that. First Subhanallah Does everybody know what Subhan Allah means?

01:18:07--> 01:18:18

Subhana Allah is like, when you raise the status of Allah in your life, his authority, so that when you say Subhana, Allah comes from tisby.

01:18:19--> 01:18:38

So you are raising Allah status and authority in your life. It's not become the type of ticket but it's not just remember, it's your raising his authority, his power, his control. So you're actually in essence submitting yourself more to Allah when you Say Subhan Allah

01:18:40--> 01:18:59

That's why Allah says in a whole bunch of suitors Subedi Lahemaa is similar to what you said Bihu level map is similar to set base model because Allah Allah is always saying everything in the heavens and the earth is making to speak to Allah.

01:19:00--> 01:19:09

And if they haven't done so, they're doing it now. You said Bihu level present tense, they're doing it now. So you say Subhana Allah when you hear the stuff right.

01:19:11--> 01:19:15

Don't do this again. Here's how Allah concludes this topic, okay?

01:19:16--> 01:19:21

Era, the como la who enter or do limitary He a burden Incoterm meaning

01:19:23--> 01:19:38

that's all the law says. Now that's it. I've told you enough. Now my last idea to you is this. He warns you Yeah, it'll come. You see this first word here, students. This word here.

01:19:40--> 01:19:42

He warns you.

01:19:43--> 01:19:47

Era will come comes from the word wildfire.

01:19:48--> 01:19:52

World. Do you remember in Surah Lokman.

01:19:53--> 01:19:59

What who are your evil who? Look man earlier he said him when he was advising his son

01:20:00--> 01:20:14

A lot called the advice Yeah, the same word malware Elva, have you heard this word before malware ever till hustler? Which dealer whom bility here. So remember this word Okay.

01:20:15--> 01:20:21

Yari local. See if I wrote it here, no I did, okay? This word

01:20:23--> 01:20:37

malware entha, or evil comb is a reminder. But it's the kind of reminder that penetrates the heart. You ever hear like, when somebody tells you something? Like, if I tell you,

01:20:39--> 01:20:40

um,

01:20:41--> 01:20:51

be nice to your parents, even if they've passed away, be good to them. Pray for them. That's one thing me most like on tells you this.

01:20:52--> 01:20:56

But if your husband or your wife

01:20:57--> 01:21:02

or a close aunt or uncle told you the same thing, be nice to your mom.

01:21:03--> 01:21:08

same sentence, but came from two individuals. Is the experience different for both?

01:21:10--> 01:21:20

You know how we say, if I tell you, Hey, don't do that again. That's one thing as a teacher, what if your mom told you don't do that again. It's like your piano.

01:21:21--> 01:21:25

It's a totally different experience when your mom says that there's a level Okay, mom.

01:21:26--> 01:21:30

Brother mostly tells us that everyday but we laugh at him. But now you said

01:21:31--> 01:21:34

you know my father. When I first started to do this work.

01:21:35--> 01:21:59

I got asked to lead a prayer at a masjid in Toronto here. First time in my life. I had my quotable low. I had all prepped in my mind. This was a sword I'm going to read. First time I I touched the microphone. And the guys that have asked me to lead the salaat right. So I let the solar who will know who I felt like I was the man of the Kaaba. I was great right? Went home told my dad

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

let Salah in this Masjid man, you know, call me in shape Muslim, or I was like 17 or something right? You know, my father told me

01:22:10--> 01:22:22

one simple thing. I never have forgotten this until this day, especially when I stand in front of a microphone. I can never forget this simple sentence he told me a father

01:22:24--> 01:22:34

telling me pick me up from the metro could even drive was too young. And we're driving them as a key I recall mobile hotspots raka Allah Who summit in the second workout or something, all right, I and he's like, listen,

01:22:36--> 01:22:40

make sure you do that for a lot or don't do it again.

01:22:42--> 01:22:45

Day of Judgment happened in that car right then and there. I thought it was like the end.

01:22:47--> 01:22:47

Because why?

01:22:49--> 01:23:26

It wasn't just the advice that came from your father. Your dad's telling you that? How many times other Muslims tell you the same thing. Yeah, inshallah hydralic law fair for them, they'll see if I appreciate it. When somebody close to you or can touch that part of you. That's called malware Allah, when they really can get to your heart no matter what the piece of advices so Allah says the area the qumola I'm only telling you this because I wanted to reach the place where your Amen settles, wanted to get to your heart and to do limitedly ABA.

01:23:27--> 01:23:38

And he warns you from ever doing something like this again, if you are true believers. Remember the question I asked you here's the answer that I asked you earlier. Is it possible to live without ever gossiping?

01:23:40--> 01:23:41

Look at the this is the answer.

01:23:42--> 01:24:05

Allah tells you I'm reminding you nicely Don't ever do this again. If you are a believer, why would Allah command you to do the impossible? Not possible. So everything that Allah tells us to do? It's possible so he tells us don't ever return to gossip again because why it's possible.

01:24:06--> 01:24:10

You just have to think and believe it is. And may Allah give us strength to do that.

01:24:12--> 01:24:23

Any questions? Will you be in LA hola como el yet while la hora de mon Hakeem. Allah is clarifying all of his a Yet Allah is full of wisdom. So

01:24:24--> 01:24:25

this here

01:24:27--> 01:24:58

is literally the last and final point. Okay, this section of the sewer now is done. Less look, the end of the day. I'm just bringing clarity of my revelation to all of you. Because Allah is full of knowledge and full of wisdom. Okay. Allah knows what is best for you. So you might think that it's kind of weird to respond to gossip when you hear it that way, especially when you're like with non Muslims or at work or what have you. It's kind of weird to do that. Less Look, I know what I'm telling you

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

These are my A yet to your believer. So act like it behave like it and do what a believer should do in situations like this. Okay.

01:25:10--> 01:25:12

Next, any questions so far?

01:25:14--> 01:25:16

What are your thoughts so far on the subject?

01:25:18--> 01:25:22

As it highlighted certain things for you that perhaps you haven't thought of?

01:25:24--> 01:25:31

It's the it's the sort of not me as the sort of started to highlight certain things about you in your life. You haven't thought of?

01:25:32--> 01:25:41

If so, if not, maybe these are areas of weakness that you have the potential to strengthen. Okay. Yep.

01:25:46--> 01:26:07

Yes, the subject? Yes. It's in this particular sort of soil hoogenraad is a popular Surah that you go to for this subject as well. It's also talked about at the end of sortal, for on there, it's scattered, but it's definitely mentioned in a few places. Yep. This

01:26:10--> 01:26:17

Yes, this is the most detailed account of this subject in the entire Quran is in this surah. And you know, what's amazing?

01:26:19--> 01:26:20

What's the sort of called?

01:26:22--> 01:26:23

What's known.

01:26:24--> 01:26:27

So everything in this sort of should reflect what

01:26:28--> 01:26:31

some sort of light and brilliance in you.

01:26:33--> 01:26:48

The first or the second section of the surah is all about gossip. You control that what manifests out of you node, you just have light. Does everybody know what light is? When you say when I say to Allah will bless you with note

01:26:49--> 01:26:52

of you ever seen someone?

01:26:54--> 01:26:56

A fellow Muslim, and you look at their face?

01:26:58--> 01:27:11

And you're just like, wow, you see something special in him or her? And when I say that, I mean, like, you see that devotion, that Eman, that brilliance of images like, Wow.

01:27:13--> 01:27:21

She's special. He's special. He's there's something different. Something different about them. That's newer. It's hard to explain.

01:27:22--> 01:27:33

Most of the scholars don't like the dispute what it is exactly. Don't think it's the center of the mark, by the way, because culturally, a lot of people think that Megan's got no.

01:27:35--> 01:27:40

There are people who get there without ever praying one single rock era. Okay.

01:27:41--> 01:27:54

I've met many of them who don't even pray. And I've got that Marshall. I don't know how they got it, though. If they were barbecuing or what? I don't know. But the point is, that is not necessarily a reflection of someone's he met.

01:27:55--> 01:28:02

The nor the brilliance is as a result of devotion and Taqwa. And you just know when you see it, yeah.

01:28:07--> 01:28:08

Yep.

01:28:11--> 01:28:11

This one?

01:28:18--> 01:28:32

Yeah, on behalf of the believer, in other words, this is how the believer would speak. When they hear blasphemy or gossip or so on. They will say had Subhanak ahead of time on Ali.

01:28:33--> 01:29:02

Yeah, they're telling the accuser or the person, not even accuser, the person who's spreading the rumors, and it comes to you. Not the person who started it even just any random person like, yeah, did you hear something? So I just saw some of these what people are saying is when people are talking about, yeah, you respond. Subhanak? Say SubhanAllah? No, I don't wanna talk about that. Quick question. What if you're just talking about random people like celebrities? You see, Britney Spears? Oh, my God. She was something I don't know.

01:29:04--> 01:29:06

Can you be like, oh Subhana Cotabato on Aldine?

01:29:08--> 01:29:16

How do you respond to that? This is random talk. It has nothing to do with you. It's like, stuff you saw on TV on the news, whatever. No big deal.

01:29:17--> 01:29:18

Is the same ruling.

01:29:20--> 01:29:22

Don't talk about Britney Spears like that. Or

01:29:24--> 01:29:37

how do you handle that? Just random gossip about random stuff that has no relevance to you. Is that considered the same thing? So scholars categorize, gossip?

01:29:38--> 01:29:59

they categorize it. So are severe, major gossip intermediate. And then there's gossip that is considered just random. And they can still potentially be sinful, still potentially be sinful? Because somebody might say I may I may never meet these celebrities who cares if I'm talking about them or not? They're celebrities they should know

01:30:00--> 01:30:03

People talk about them. They're public figures, it's part of the job.

01:30:05--> 01:30:11

Just because you see everyone eating poison doesn't mean you go and taste it.

01:30:13--> 01:30:54

You understand the logic here, just because you see everybody eating the same thing. You don't just jump in oh, it just, it's just one crumb. That's a no big deal. It's not going to affect me in any way. Just don't do it. Just don't do it. It's a waste of your time. It's a waste of your tongue. And remember, there's an angel sitting with you 24 hours a day writing down everything you're saying. It's a waste of your time. Remember, these industries are built to waste your time to occupy your time so you don't think about anything useful just busy your time watching and involved in this stuff.

01:30:55--> 01:30:57

So just keep that in mind. Okay, yeah

01:31:03--> 01:31:03

yeah.

01:31:06--> 01:31:19

No, no, there's one thing when you're critiquing someone, you're critiquing their policies. Now this candidate is not who I think you should vote for because they're so so so said no. Gossip is very specific.

01:31:23--> 01:31:54

Again, gossip is defined when you're defaming someone's character you're putting them down your your intention intentionally out to insult and ridicule and embarrassed and lower that person in some way shape or form. So if you're talking about actual facts about an individual a politician or anybody else this is the policies that they've held it was racist it was against these this minority blah blah blah they made promises they never kick that's not backbiting that's not gossip either.

01:31:55--> 01:31:58

Okay, good question Shall we

01:32:00--> 01:32:08

we've got about it's almost so we've got a promise I'll get you guys out here before midnight inshallah Okay.

01:32:10--> 01:32:13

Especially the students online you will be able to log off before midnight inshallah

01:32:15--> 01:32:21

in a Latina you hipbone and she Alpha he shall feel Latina I'm in a really like this a

01:32:24--> 01:32:25

suit let's do this guy's

01:32:27--> 01:32:33

no doubt the kinds of people who spread shamelessness next subject, this is subject number three in sort of the norm, shame,

01:32:35--> 01:32:37

shame, fascia

01:32:38--> 01:32:41

shame Melodien Are you born?

01:32:42--> 01:33:31

No doubt the kinds of people who love to spread fascia. You see, I highlighted in blue, because scholars say it means one of two things. And that's the bottom that you see there. Number one, they want shamelessness to spread. Or number two, they want the discourse to spread the conversation of shame to spread. So either they want the actual act itself to be spread more and more shameful behavior, or more and more shameful conversation, words, speeches, and that sort of thing. So it could mean one or the other. Allah knows best even some of our random essay is a combination of both. It's all types and all forms of shape. Point is, Allah says, As for those who would love to

01:33:31--> 01:33:33

spread this kind of stuff,

01:33:34--> 01:33:41

fill Adina ermine, from amongst those who believe. Do you know the difference between

01:33:42--> 01:34:07

men and Alladhina Emin some of my past students, we mentioned this quite a bit. Let's refresh your memories and see what you've got. So many know the difference when you say a Latina Amande those who acknowledge faith as opposed to Mortman a believer what's the difference between the two? I acknowledge faith believer was the difference.

01:34:09--> 01:34:17

The differences in the wording itself. I acknowledged faith on the believer was the difference.

01:34:20--> 01:34:21

One just acknowledges it.

01:34:23--> 01:34:24

And the other one

01:34:26--> 01:34:26

said again

01:34:30--> 01:34:39

sort of this one here they see the right thing to do, but they don't actually do it. Yeah, I know that's wrong. Oh, well.

01:34:40--> 01:34:47

They don't they don't actually protect themselves from it. I know Xena is wrong. I know gossip is wrong.

01:34:48--> 01:34:50

But they still fall into it from time to time.

01:34:51--> 01:34:52

That's alesina

01:34:54--> 01:34:55

Moltmann

01:34:56--> 01:34:59

No way. They're they're not going to get into that stuff.

01:35:00--> 01:35:20

Now Allah is talking about those who at least have the intellect the ability to recognize what is the right thing. They're the ones now they understand what they're doing. They're spreading shameful behavior or conversation. Lahoma, taboo. polymorpha dunya Well, after all, there's no exception for them either.

01:35:21--> 01:35:25

You want to spread that kind of shameful behavior or attitude.

01:35:27--> 01:35:30

So what's an example of a shameful behavior?

01:35:32--> 01:35:33

Like swearing

01:35:35--> 01:35:37

cursing, that's a shameful act, isn't it?

01:35:39--> 01:35:39

Do you agree?

01:35:42--> 01:35:43

Do you look shocked

01:35:44--> 01:35:47

so it's a shameful behavior right? And I love to swear.

01:35:49--> 01:35:54

By the way that conversation of cursing in general swear words is the whole subject in the shorter

01:35:55--> 01:35:58

we're going to talk about what exactly is a curse word

01:35:59--> 01:36:11

because there are some Muslims I have met I've talked to there will be they'll say though the curse word to me and just the word somebody just made it as a bad thing but I don't see it as a bad thing.

01:36:12--> 01:36:20

And they just say to you is curse like they must have is cursing at you like I don't care. My intention is not to curse.

01:36:21--> 01:36:22

Y'all Allah

01:36:24--> 01:36:26

Lahoma double Le Monde for dunya will

01:36:28--> 01:36:37

will law who we are them into later Allah moon, Allah knows and you do not know. Okay, well that will follow the law here la camara metal.

01:36:38--> 01:36:39

This is number what?

01:36:41--> 01:36:42

Third time we're seeing the same as

01:36:44--> 01:36:58

if it had not been the favors of Allah and the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah is extremely compassionate, exceptionally more merciful Raouf, one of my favorite names of Allah subhanho wa taala. Out Raouf.

01:36:59--> 01:37:03

Exceptionally, extremely compassionate,

01:37:04--> 01:37:05

or OOF

01:37:06--> 01:37:23

is when it's kind of like saying to somebody, I know how you feel. That's a roof. So when Allah says Allah, who would often be very bad roofer Rahim? Don't worry, I know you're going through. I understand. It's okay.

01:37:24--> 01:37:26

It's amazing. And lover.

01:37:27--> 01:37:35

Because sometimes the world doesn't understand me. And is that how I feel? What Allah says I'm a robot. So when Allah

01:37:36--> 01:37:41

emphasizes that he understands you, in turn, what does that make you do with Allah now?

01:37:42--> 01:37:46

Does that make you do now with Allah? You start talking to him more and more.

01:37:47--> 01:37:50

That's what the roof does. It's beautiful.

01:37:51--> 01:37:57

last verse. Yeah, you're letting me know. So the introduction to shame.

01:37:58--> 01:38:04

Yeah, you're letting me is the idea that I don't know if we'll finish it, but will last I have for today.

01:38:05--> 01:38:24

And number 21 is the one of the most explicit verses in the entire Quran. That gives us a step by step guide. So this is like your information booklet, your instruction booklet of how the trap of shaitan works. Okay.

01:38:25--> 01:38:31

So that's the area there in front of you. But I've broken it down here on the next slide. Okay.

01:38:32--> 01:38:37

Yeah, you have Latina Hammond, who has a lot of talking to students who people of whom

01:38:39--> 01:38:40

people have

01:38:41--> 01:38:45

Amen. not Muslim. Not Yeah, you oneness. People have Amen.

01:38:47--> 01:38:57

So it's a very specific audience. So your first note, if you want to understand how shaitan trap works, what do you need to have in you?

01:38:59--> 01:39:15

Some Amen. At least or else isn't, you're not going to figure this out. You're not going to see, you know, if you get an instruction booklet of how to operate a piece of machinery, but you can't read well, so you're like, Okay, blue. I don't understand what anything is being said here.

01:39:17--> 01:39:44

The way to understand now. Amen. gives you that ability. So yeah, he will let you know. That's all of us. Okay. That who helped a lot to shape on here's number one. First thing Allah says is don't follow the footsteps of Showtime. So how does this trap work? Take a look at it right here. This is step number one. Allah highlights the steps of Showtime. What is the steps of shaitaan?

01:39:45--> 01:39:52

What is that? How does that look in real life? I mean, we obviously can't see his real footprint. So what is the steps of shaitan?

01:39:55--> 01:39:55

The answer,

01:39:57--> 01:39:59

everybody else does it. So what's the big deal?

01:40:00--> 01:40:01

That's the steps of shaitaan

01:40:02--> 01:40:19

everyone else is doing it. Everyone else talks that way. Everyone else dresses that way everyone else acts that way everyone else does it. That's the steps of trade line. Allah says number one, don't follow what everyone else is doing. That's a whole lot to ship on.

01:40:20--> 01:40:21

Everybody with me so far?

01:40:24--> 01:40:26

Number two, we go back.

01:40:28--> 01:40:30

Let's do hope watershed one.

01:40:31--> 01:40:34

If you have Eman you already see what those steps are, don't you?

01:40:36--> 01:40:42

Number two, we'll make that error hold the light to shape on fit you know who yep model Bill fascia, you will Mancha.

01:40:44--> 01:40:55

Don't follow the footsteps of shade or whomever follows the footsteps in his footsteps? He will surely command you with fascia and mancha what is the next step?

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

So you recognize the steps of shaitaan

01:41:02--> 01:41:07

but if you don't naturally what ends up happening you become a follower.

01:41:09--> 01:41:14

This is an area young people have to study before they start high school especially.

01:41:16--> 01:41:19

Is that how you're supposed to study this is your intro to high school life.

01:41:20--> 01:41:24

law says you got some Eman will recognize there's going to be a lot of messed up things around you.

01:41:26--> 01:41:43

And once you if you don't recognize a you don't see it or you don't care to see it, then naturally, here's where you end up. You start doing what everyone else does. You start dressing however else dresses Acts how everyone else has want what everyone else wants. Do what everyone else does.

01:41:45--> 01:41:46

You start doing it.

01:41:48--> 01:42:00

So they follow the footsteps of shaitan. What do they follow them in? What the shaitan lead them to do two things. That's next. He commands you. So go back.

01:42:02--> 01:42:13

What mania Talia hotel Latisha. I thought this is the word for in the WHO yet more. We're breaking this down piece by piece command. You see that there? That's the next step.

01:42:14--> 01:42:17

Now you didn't recognize what was wrong.

01:42:18--> 01:42:22

So you end up following him. Now he'll tell you what to do.

01:42:24--> 01:42:26

Now you don't even have to see it anymore.

01:42:27--> 01:42:29

Shaitan owns you.

01:42:30--> 01:42:40

Shaitan literally says I own your mind now. Just tell you. Who cares what your parents say? Just curse back at them and walk out.

01:42:41--> 01:42:51

Who cares? If the if your mom told you don't dress like that, hide it in a bag and get dressed somewhere else. Just hide it. Who cares? That sweatshirt on commends you now to do

01:42:52--> 01:43:16

you're supposed to keep yourself together as best as possible. In an intense situation. Shaitan just tells you no, no, no, just curse his fight back, say something. They cut you off there or do something about it. That's what shaitan does. You know for the believer, you hear those voices, which you can ward it off. You can always be learning. No, I'm not going to do that.

01:43:17--> 01:43:19

Somebody who doesn't have strong faith.

01:43:21--> 01:43:22

They fall right into a

01:43:24--> 01:43:25

tripod and starts telling them what to do.

01:43:27--> 01:43:32

Who cares if she's your wife? Treat her like garbage. Take away her rights, who cares?

01:43:33--> 01:43:41

She needs to learn her lesson. All those kinds of images and phrases pops into his head. So he goes off at Next.

01:43:44--> 01:43:45

And Allah continues.

01:43:46--> 01:43:58

Come at Bill fascia and mancha are two things. Remember these two words. They are the two most powerful tools that Showtime does he uses fascia and Mancha.

01:43:59--> 01:44:13

Fascia, that's the word for shame any shameful act or behavior fascia for our which is the plural fascia. You see this all over the Poron all over the forehead, fascia, shameful behavior.

01:44:16--> 01:44:19

Now these, in this day and age,

01:44:21--> 01:44:23

you ever try scrolling through tick tock?

01:44:25--> 01:44:26

That's fascia.

01:44:28--> 01:44:36

You'll just be like typing in something specific. So you scroll through one video to do interesting cooking videos and all of a sudden,

01:44:37--> 01:44:41

our shaitan pops up, right? And he goes, Oh my god, oh my God, that's fascia.

01:44:43--> 01:45:00

So it's a tough thing to navigate through in this day and age. Because social media, the internet as a whole revolves around fascia. Like you could type in your favorite speaker on YouTube. And you ever see the search results what ends up happening. So you have

01:45:00--> 01:45:07

Your favorite speaker on all the lecture and then you have this one crazy video in between and then it's back to that's all fascia.

01:45:08--> 01:45:11

If someone was not careful here,

01:45:12--> 01:45:39

they get there and then shaitan tells you Okay, so if you're just listening to a lecture, just click on it. Click that that one video popped up, it's called you just click on it. So that's how he owns you. And he orders you to start doing this stuff. I tell you, man, young people, they got to have this idea with them. It should be a screensaver on all of their phones. This a then the next was monka

01:45:40--> 01:45:46

fascia leads to one cutter. You guys know what Moncure is? mancha is

01:45:48--> 01:45:54

the most unspeakable behaviors that human a human being can possess.

01:45:55--> 01:45:58

You know how in this day and age, you'll hear about somebody

01:46:01--> 01:46:05

you know, if they had a child and they didn't want their child is through the child in the garbage.

01:46:06--> 01:46:07

People do that.

01:46:08--> 01:46:12

There's a story in the states of a woman she flushed her baby down the toilet

01:46:14--> 01:46:26

is people just do things that you would I would be like, how could somebody do that? How could somebody get into their car, watch a family crawl, walking by the road and just drive up and kill all them

01:46:28--> 01:46:30

and still just wake up the next day go to bed.

01:46:32--> 01:46:39

That's unspeakable crimes, unspeakable behavior. We live in those times now where people do that.

01:46:40--> 01:46:41

Walking to a masjid.

01:46:43--> 01:46:44

Just shoot away people.

01:46:45--> 01:46:55

No reason whatsoever. Just Just do it. Take as many out as you possibly can, and just run away and go home and hide. That's Moncler.

01:46:56--> 01:47:05

That's what fascia does. Everybody remember this? Okay. Everyone who commits a mooncup has an experience with fascia.

01:47:06--> 01:47:14

Anyone who does mooncup has experience and has gone through fascia.

01:47:16--> 01:47:59

Every one of them, you cannot have one without the other. You can't. So this is why the poor n is so strict on fascia. We we tend to think that fascia is only you know, harmful sexual behavior. No, it's much more all levels of shape. So when you teach your children or teenagers are told, don't talk like that behave this way. Don't dress this way. This is why because ultimately, you as a parent, you're trying to stop them from getting there. Because then they're probably one day and Allah forbid they just look at you at the parent and be like, I hate you. I don't want to live here with you anymore. And you as a parent be like, how could you say that to me? You can't fathom those

01:47:59--> 01:48:04

words coming out of your own child's mouth. But that's because shaitan got them to one partner.

01:48:06--> 01:48:10

May Allah help us and finally, human decency is gone, right?

01:48:15--> 01:48:20

Well, Mangawhai Lola Fabiola here are the Kumara mezakeh Minh coming ahead in Aberdeen Abba

01:48:21--> 01:48:39

would have been pure rather. So here Allah says had not been for the virtual and mercy of Allah subhanaw taala none of you would have been pure. In other words, human decency is gone. And only Allah can preserve that. You know how, you know how people will say,

01:48:40--> 01:48:55

Well, don't worry, I know what I'm doing. I can control it. Don't worry. I'm just angry today but I can control I'm not like that. I'm just having a fight with my mom and I told her all of that stuff. I told her I'd kill her. I told her I don't like her. But I was just saying I don't want I can control that. No, no, no, you can't.

01:48:56--> 01:49:09

mezakeh min comb men are headed Aveda. While akinola yuzaki Masha, Allah is saying, You don't cure purify yourself. Allah is the one that purifies you. So you have control over nothing.

01:49:11--> 01:49:33

So when you find yourself that you don't do the craziness that others do, it's because Allah is taking care of you. You're being pure you are pure because of Allah's will. He's in charge of that. You can't do that. So when especially again, naive teenagers that say, Oh, we're gonna figure it out. Look, I know what I'm doing. Just leave me alone.

01:49:35--> 01:49:39

That's why they need a ad like this. There's a lot more to talk about. By the way. One more pause here and show love.

01:49:41--> 01:49:44

And we will conclude for today, be it ninja ATAR Allah.

01:49:45--> 01:49:47

Does anybody have any questions?

01:49:48--> 01:49:57

Sudah is gonna get really personal and real deep. We're just scratching the surface. It's gonna get more explicit,

01:49:58--> 01:50:00

more detailed.

01:50:00--> 01:50:01

It's just gonna,

01:50:02--> 01:50:44

it's gonna really just coming out in front of our face. It's just gonna keep slapping us in the face more and more of this. So stay tuned, it's just getting warmed up. Okay.
