Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Mohammed, while he was a hobby as a Marine about when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam migrated to Medina, one of the very first things he institutionalized in Medina was brotherhood, along with Brotherhood was who also Allahu Allah was some emphasized upon looking after each other and taking care of each other. The reason why the problem he focused on these things is because this is how a community is developed. And this is how the heart and the unity remains in a community. When people look after each other, they care for one another. This is

00:01:02 --> 00:01:41

how love is created and love stays. The Prophet said Allahu Allah He was sort of knows very well, that while he's come to Medina, and while he's focusing in highlighting the importance of these things, there are people in Medina who do not wish well for the Muslims, and they don't wish well for the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam you have people like Abdullah bin obey the leader of the monarchy and the hypocrites trying to find every opportunity to create disunity and to divide the hearts of the Muslims. We find even in the seed of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once while he was traveling with the Muslims, he was trying to create dissent within the Muslims, the

00:01:41 --> 00:02:22

Prophet sallallahu ala some he got so upset that while I'm alive and I am between you the Sahaba this is how you are treating one another. This is how you are going at each other. The Prophet saw some was not okay with this. So the point is that in a community and enough in our family, not just community but even within our own families, it is very important to keep our hearts together to keep our hearts united to look after one another and to care for one another. This is why the Prophet said Allahu Allah He was some he has mentioned a very beautiful Hadith I Hadith that tells us that there are seven things that we need to do seven things that we need to do. The very first thing the

00:02:22 --> 00:03:07

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, er como Vaughn stay away and beware and stay away from suspicion for innovation that will Hadith he says it he Salam, for suspicion is the worst of false false tales and false stories. This is why I'm sharing the story, this hadith with you because we're talking about the best and the worst. What is the worst type of stories is stories that are that are developed and stories that are a result of us being suspicious about one another? Later on the Prophet sallallahu is and he goes on to say let the hustle and do not try to find faults with one another lot that just says Sue do not spy on one another let the harasser do Do not be envious and

00:03:07 --> 00:03:52

jealous of one another. Wala Delgado and do not desert and cut off in several relationships from from one another one at all do and do not hate one another. And then the Prophet SAW Allah Allah is something he concludes by saying what cool nor a bad Allah He Juana that be united and be brothers with one another, and Subhanallah we find this even in the Quran, Allah says what we know now Well, not me not bow to whom Alia about the believing men amongst themselves, they are friends with one another. They are supporters of one another. The Muslim women amongst themselves are most are supporters of one another. They look after one another and they care for one another brother and

00:03:52 --> 00:04:38

sisters as a human being unfortunately, today, we are we look for the negatives, the Prophet SAW Allah Hi, someone is telling us to stay away from that. If you have suspicious feelings or thoughts about someone else, then stay away from that. Now the question that many people ask is that can you please define for me? What is the definition of being suspicious? being suspicious or suspecting someone is that you have a wrong theory or a wrong thought about someone else? And you have absolutely no proof of it, and no evidence of it. So if I think of someone in the wrong way, then eventually the problem is somebody's telling us all the other things like the hustle wallet, the

00:04:38 --> 00:05:00

justice, and he's telling us all these things and the reason why the poverty ism is mentioning those things that do not hate and do not look for each other's faults do not spy and so forth, is because all these five things are a result of when you are suspicious about someone else. So the crux of the problem, the root and the foundation of

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

All the problems, why do we spy on one another? Do why do we look for false one?

00:05:06 --> 00:05:52

Within one another? Why do we desert and break off and sever relationships with one another? It all stems from us being suspicious about one another. Now this is why our Dean has taught us Do not be oversensitive. Do not be you do not think of negativity within other people. As we are unfortunately, we look for more negativity, we think of more negativity. You know, subhanAllah, there's a very, there's a very interesting story. But it's just you know, it shows us what we are a math professor, he writes down a multiplication table of nine on the board. He wrote all the answers correct. But he made one mistake. And he did that intentionally. But what did all the students focus

00:05:52 --> 00:06:40

on? They focus on the one run that he did. Today, a person does so much. But what does the society focus on? They focus on the negatives. But that's why the Prophet saw some is telling us that we need to change the way we think we need to change the way we see things. And this is why the Prophet saw some says, stay away from that. Now the question that some people may have is that what if I am suspecting someone of something, and this is about the Muslim community mean that I am suspecting someone a foul play. And if I do not look into it, and if I don't research into it, then this person could cause harm and damage to people and to the community overall, in that situation, your Nia

00:06:40 --> 00:07:24

should be absolutely clear. If you want to research and you want to inquire about it, then you should inquire about the thing that this person is doing. See, what happens is that we usually target the person, we don't target what wrong that they're doing, we have to separate the two. One is the person one is the action, we are told them we are taught hate the action, do not hate the person hate and dislike the thing that he's doing wrong, do not dislike the person. So this is why it is very important that if we know, and we have somewhat amount of evidence that this person is doing something, or there's a group of people, collectively, they are doing something wrong, and we

00:07:24 --> 00:08:02

have evidence for it, that we need to stand up because this is what I'm gonna bring my roof. And here it is. And the reason I'm showing this is because a lot of times we're not able to draw that line, I had a person one time calling me and saying that a person is doing them wrong, very clearly someone who's doing them wrong. But at the same time, I am, you know, if I'm suspecting this person, I'm doing something wrong. The problem is someone has told us not to suspect that's not the definition of suspicion. Suspicion is when you don't have any evidence. If someone is hurting you, then you need to stand up for yourself, you need to defend yourself. So this is why a few advices I

00:08:02 --> 00:08:38

will give number one is there is no better advice than the advices of Rasulullah sallallahu, ala he would send them the profiles, Sam tells us that we should be united, we should be close and connected with one another. And the probability Sam tells us that do not be suspicious about one another because it can lead to being hateful towards one another spying on one another, looking for faults with one another, judging other people and so forth. So this is why this is the very first advice of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam. The second advice I will give is that if you are suspicious about someone, and you feel like you have enough evidence and proof, first of all is go

00:08:38 --> 00:09:16

to that person and talk to that person. A lot of times the reason why we have suspicious feelings or thoughts is because we have misunderstood the story. Or we have misread the situation. A lot of times you go and you talk to someone else, and they will give you they'll provide an explanation that puts your heart at rest. So if you have a suspicious feeling, then instead of going around and spreading something in the community in the society, go to that person and talk to that person. Communication. Unfortunately, within our Muslim community is lost. We don't talk to each other, talk to each other, communicate with each other. If there's something in your heart about someone, go and

00:09:16 --> 00:09:54

talk to that person, if you feel like a person is doing something and you're suspicious, talk to them about it. Now, afterwards. The next thing is that if you are suspicious about someone and you have ample amount of evidence and proof, then at that time you have to take a certain amount of action. And as a as a community and collectively, along with yourself and some others. People need to go to this person and say that what this person is doing is absolutely wrong. Now in this situation, either the person is going to say you know what, I agree, I surrender. I agree that what you're saying is right, and they will turn to Allah subhana wa Tada. Or for the most part, what we

00:09:54 --> 00:09:59

see is everyone becomes defensive. Everyone becomes defensive in that situation. If you

00:10:00 --> 00:10:34

don't have ample amount of evidence and you go to a person and you're saying that you have seen a trend and what they're doing is wrong. And they're saying I'm not doing anything wrong. In that situation, you have to leave the matter to Allah subhanho wa Taala you have to leave the matter to Allah subhanho wa Taala because Allah knows what's going on. If a person is truly doing something wrong, and they're gonna, they're gonna brush you off. Remember, they cannot brush off ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. They may tell you that you don't know what's in my heart. And that's true. We don't know what's in other people's hearts. But at the same time, Allah knows what's in their heart leave,

00:10:34 --> 00:11:13

they're married to Allah subhanho wa taala. And it is a fact when a person does something wrong. Allah subhana wa Tada will hold them accountable. It will be either in this dunya it could be in the akhira or it can be in both places. So once again, the main advice given to us by the Prophet salallahu Salam is stay away from suspicion, or any other stories that could come from that could be a result of suspicion and a suspicious feelings. I ask Allah subhana wa to keep us united. I ask Allah subhanaw taala the all those who may be doing something wrong, may Allah change their heart, turn their heart, may Allah Subhan Allah give them the ability to make dua to Allah subhanho wa

00:11:13 --> 00:11:23

Taala and may Allah subhana wa Tada keeps keep our hearts clean and united. Um, you know, but I mean, does that Kamala had a sin Amati Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh
