Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Welcome to another segment of Hadith of the day, where we take a quote of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam expand upon it and understand it in our current context. You know, when we generally get together and when we talk about the current state of the OMA, many of us have different explanations. And we have different reasons as to what we think is the current situation, or the reasoning behind the current situation with the OMA. Some of us think of it as some of us think that it is our financial, lacking. Some people think that it is because our lack of having enough intellectuals in our own mind and so forth. And while a lot of

00:00:50 --> 00:01:32

these reasons may be there, I'm not completely denying all these reasons. But Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam, he actually tells us in a hadith, that if you really want to look at what destroys previous OMAS, what has destroyed previous Omaze and what can destroy you today, let's look at a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And in essence, what this hadith does teach us to is that there are two sicknesses. There are two diseases that can affect our communities. And then at the finally, at the end of the Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gives us the antidote He gives us, like, you know, today, we're talking about pandemics. We're talking about the

00:01:32 --> 00:01:58

pandemic that we're going through, and we're talking about finding a vaccine to help cure this, this virus. Likewise, the Prophet saw a lot of some talks about two viruses, or two sicknesses that can come into your community. And what if it couldn't be the vaccine? for that? What could be the antidote for that? So this is a Hadith narrated by Zubayr, even IWRM, robiola, Tehran, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says,

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

de la comme des oming Kubla Khan, the Prophet saw some says lurking towards you are the diseases of the nations before you. Now let's stop here for a second. This is just one sentence of the prophets of Salaam. He's saying over here, that in the previous nations that came before you, the Quran talks about all those nations. He says lurking towards you are the diseases of the nation before you meaning that these diseases that I'm talking about right now, they have destroyed and they have affected previous nations. And when these two things when they come into your community, they just don't become apparent. The province has some says they are lurking. moolah, Alicante, Allah Allah,

00:02:45 --> 00:03:31

he is a scholar of the past. He mentioned that when the problem uses this word, what he's trying to say is that just like when you see an animal, when it's about to hunt, its prey. It's lurking somewhere, it's sitting there, ready to jump, and pounce on his prey. But what it does is that it just keeps on lurking its prey. Likewise, these two things, they're sitting there, they closely, I mean, they're very slowly and very methodically, they come into your communities, without even sometimes you even knowing things are absolutely fine today, tomorrow, things are absolutely our you know, they are haywire is a chaos. So the Prophet SAW Allah is something that he then talks about

00:03:31 --> 00:04:19

that what are those two things? He says an hustad Will Bergdahl. One is jealousy, and the other one is hatred. Then the Prophet SAW along with some He says he'll hire Lipa that they are the is shaves, then probably someone says the higher liquor to de la Holika to Shah, he says, I do not say that it shaves the hair, but rather it shaves their religion. Now think about this. Imagine if you have hair and you shave that hair, something is there, then something is completely gone. By just one one time you use, you use that razor and you wipe it in one place, the hair has completely gone. Likewise, the province has some saying that when these two things they come into your community, and not just

00:04:19 --> 00:05:00

community, but rather if you look at this hadith this hadith has been mentioned in many books of marriage also. Meaning that this applies to our families to not just our communities but our families too. So the province of some is telling us that in your families, you will see many cases that if you look at what is causing the entire family to be apart, what is breaking families apart, the province Assam is telling us and hustled well, by law, it is a jealousy and it is hatred. Now, I want to talk about before I get to the next part, which is the antidote and the solution to overcome these two things, the promises someone has

00:05:00 --> 00:05:46

has given us something ahead. But before that, I want to talk about Al Hasan and Walburga, which is jealousy and hatred. First of all, when we talk about jealousy, what exactly is jealousy? Jealousy, first of all, is something that is real, and it does exist. And you may think, and any one of us may think that we are immune to it, that there is no one who might be jealous of me. But there's always going to be someone who's jealous of you. That's why the Prophet salallahu Salam has taught us profusely, that always make a habit to read sootel falak. Why? Because certain follow up protects us from external evils. So when people when we show that we have something, or even if we don't show

00:05:46 --> 00:06:26

it, and ALLAH SubhanA, Allah has given us something, there's always someone who will be jealous of that. And just like today, we are jealous of someone when they have something. Now there is nothing wrong in jealousy or envy that where you pray to Allah subhanaw taala that Oh Allah, whatever you have given him, I would love to have that there's something wrong in doing a making dua of that type. But what jealousy usually entails is that you're making this dua to Allah and you're making this internal wish, that whether I get it or not, whether I have the blessing or not, I don't want that person to be blessed with that blessing. That's what it is. And so in essence, what happens is

00:06:26 --> 00:07:10

that you become ungrateful to Allah subhana wa to Allah. Oh Allah, why did you give that person he's not deserving of it. I know what he does. Yes, we may know what that person does. You don't think Allah subhana wa Taala knows. Yet when Allah subhanho wa Taala gives someone a blessing, then we should always make dua for them in that blessing. And this is why when it comes to jealousy, it eventually leads to being unfaithful to Allah, ungrateful to Allah subhanho wa taala. I mean, nowadays, it is, it's actually quite sad that today when we go on, on our social media accounts, first of all, is that when it comes to our social media accounts, my humble advice would be is you

00:07:10 --> 00:07:48

don't need to put everything on social media. I mean, a person is traveling, they're putting on social media, a person is about to eat food, they take a picture of that, and they post it on their social media accounts. You don't have to share every single thing on social media to begin with. Why? Because number one, the person who's posting it, remember that someone can apply hustle to you, you are putting yourself in a dangerous situation. Number two is that the person who's watching that post, if you see someone that is traveling, or you see someone that they're about to have something delicious to eat, or you see someone that they are going around, and they're taking pictures of

00:07:48 --> 00:08:28

wherever they go on vacations. That is something that Allah Subhanallah has given them, why don't we focus on what good Allah has given us, we're always looking at what Allah has given them. And we always are then wishing, the I, I wish I could have their life. That is what we're making that wish for that whatever they're going through, and whatever happiness they're going through, I want that same thing, oh, Allah give me their life. And a lot of times when we become unfaithful in this way, what we don't realize but then Sisters is that they have the person that we are envying the person that we say and we pray to Allah that oh Allah give me their life. There's probably something going

00:08:28 --> 00:09:12

on in their life, that you do not have the capacity to endure and to manage in your life. And that is something that a lot of times we don't see. Remember, every person is going through issues in their life. There's not a single person in this dunya in this world, I don't care which religion or which culture or religion or which ethnicity they belong to, or which language they speak. Every person, every single male, female, every person is going through some issues. And no one can say that they are going through a perfect life, there is no such thing called a perfect life. So if there is something that we truly want, that someone else has, instead of being jealous about them,

00:09:12 --> 00:09:51

we should always ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala for the one giving us ability to be thankful to him. And number two is if Allah thinks if Allah knows that that is good for us, good for our dunya good for our akhira good for our deen. Then you ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala for it, and Allah Subhan Allah if he knows that will be beneficial to you in sha Allah, Allah Subhana Allah will give it to you. So that's the very first thing. The second thing the problem he mentioned is is Albula hatred. Now what is the connection between hustled in hatred? Because the promises something he mentioned has said first, he mentioned jealousy, and then he mentioned hatred. And so someone may ask this question

00:09:51 --> 00:09:59

that is there first of all, a connection or not? And the answer is, yes, indeed, there is a connection. The second question that may someone ask is that we

00:10:00 --> 00:10:51

What how, what is the connection, and here's the connection has said and envy, as Imam Ghazali documented it he mentioned is that it leads a person to becoming angry. See, when you see that other people have something, and you are always envious of them, you're always jealous of them. Eventually after a while you become angry. And when a person becomes angry, when a person becomes angry, it leads to hatred. Okay, this is the connection. So Hassan leads to anger, and anger leads to hatred. And then when a person has a hatred, as the man was mentioned, that that is when a person who becomes he's not able to think rationally, because his anger has taken such a level has his anger

00:10:51 --> 00:11:33

has gone to such a level, where it has become hate is I just angry, it becomes hate. And when a person begins to hate, there are five things that a person can do. Number one is that he can become violent with someone else. Number two, that they will have malicious joy, meaning that when something bad happens to them in their life, they will be celebrating it, there'll be happy that my my brother and my sister went through a very difficult time, I'm happy about it. Why? Because that's a result of our hatred. The third thing that is a result of our hatred is harmful talk, talking to other people in order to harm someone else. Number four, it leads us to cutting off ties, we don't

00:11:33 --> 00:12:10

want to talk to anyone, we don't want to talk to that person, we want to cut off all connections, and all relationships with that person. And finally, this has this hatred also again, it loops around and it comes back to jealousy even creates more jealousy within a person. So this is why we need to stay away from hasit and from hatred these are two things as a prophet saw some says that he does not shave hair mean that he's not using that he's not using the parallel of a razor in that sense, but he's saying that he shaves your deen and think about this. Today when we look at our Omar where it is today.

00:12:11 --> 00:12:54

We are jealous of each other that just has led to anger and that anger has led to hatred. And today how many of us we do these kinds of things were violent towards each other today the Muslim ummah is at each other's throat. Today when we see a Muslim brother or sister, we see them you know, being blessed by ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala they got a good job they got a nice car, you know, they had a promotion out their job, whatever good that they that is going on in their life. Then we are we don't like it but when they have a when they have a setback in their life, we're celebrating that setback. That's a sign of hatred. So this is where today where we are today as OMA because once

00:12:54 --> 00:13:33

again the President has told us that this will destroy your own Ma. Now what are the power some say further on in the Hadith? He says well levy enough so Mohammed and Beardy, let me know hotter to her boo, a fella will not be Oh Combi che in either for Al to move with the HA but we don't have to cinema you know come here in this hadith the Prophet saw some there's this is a slight variation in the Hadith. This is a Hadith mentioned in most of the Ahmed, where the province has some he says, I swear by the one and whose hand Muhammad's so here the Prophet alayhi salam is talking and he's saying I swear by the one and who's in Whose Hand Mohammed like my own soul is? He does you cannot

00:13:33 --> 00:14:14

become a believer till you don't love and Shall I not tell you of that one thing that if you do, you will love each other and that is that you spread the salam amongst herself. And indeed the WIAA of Abu Huraira Viola tine found in Sahih Muslim, the province of some he has mentioned that this is the the wire or the narration that you and I have mostly heard of and that is that you cannot enter into Jana letter the hormonal Janita. Hatha told me no you cannot enter into Jana, till you believe. And you cannot believe Hatha to Habu till you don't love one another. I wanna do LUCAM Allah che and Shall I not tell you or guide you to that one thing that if you do, it will create love amongst

00:14:14 --> 00:14:52

ourselves. He then says Asha Salamabad intercom spread the Salem amongst ourselves. So this is something that the person has taught us a long time ago, 1400 years ago, and so Behala today we see what is going on today. Our OMA we see what is going on in our families fought, our families are fighting with each other, not even just amongst relatives, but amongst even children. When children grow up, siblings are not get along with each other and so forth. So this is why it's very important that we understand, and there's always a cure to these diseases of the heart. There's always a way to overcome these problems in our heart, but we have to understand that they are problems that are

00:14:52 --> 00:14:59

in our families, in our societies. And the one way that we can do and the one way or the one thing that we can do to overcome all this is

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

As a portfolio something spread the salam amongst yourself. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us the ability to clean our hearts we ask Allah subhanaw taala that he cleans our hearts cleanse us in such a way that when we meet Allah subhana wa Tala on the Day of Judgment, we have what is required by Allah subhanho wa Taala is a halal by Salim I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to give us the ability to act upon what's been sent or hurt to zakat Malachite a salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
