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

the last few weeks, we've been talking about the benefits of very bad and coming close to Allah subhanho wa taala. And the very first one we talked about was that a bad that creates inner peace within a person. The second benefit of a Buddha was that we talked about this last week that it's considered as liberating. And we talked about that Islam in itself, the way he when they came, and so forth and how the Sahaba they viewed Islam, and how they would describe Islam to others and to other rulers, in fact, was that Islam came to liberate people from the worship of other things to the worship of Allah subhanho wa taala. Today in sha Allah very briefly, the third benefit of Riba

00:00:47--> 00:01:32

is that riba creates morality within a person. Now when there is something called morality and there's something called a morality there's a difference between the two. morality in English basically means that a person who has good behavior, a person who has good o'clock good character, other people like to interact with them because of their morality. And not only that, but some are even explain that morality could also mean that a person has higher within them, or for a person to have something that is considered as fitrah each one of us the way we have been created by Allah subhanho wa Taala is that we were created with higher eventually what happens is that the society

00:01:32--> 00:02:17

may make a person let you know, they may make a person in the situation where they have a lack of hire, you know, in order we call that bad hire, okay? That the society they're surrounding are such people that they make them immoral, in morality, on the other hand, is something that is considered as a lack of good behavior, a lack of good character, people don't like to be around them. Anything that is different from the fitrah, that Allah subhana wa Taala created us on. By the way, we can talk about many different problems in our society. It's not the way that Allah created us. We then became a product of the society. When people talk about racism and hate, Allah did not create us

00:02:17--> 00:03:04

with racism and hate. In fact, when Allah subhanho wa Taala says that women are the Holocaust denier where it will already work the Laffel l Cinetic. home while where an econ Allah created us. In fact, Allah takes great honor, in the fact that Allah has created so many different religion, so many different languages, and so many different ethnicities. This is Allah bragging about this. So if Allah is bragging about this, than how we see the hatred and the racism, and so forth today, this is because we then become a product of our society. Society says your race is the more superior race, hence, all the other races become inferior to your race, and hence, racism grows and so forth. The

00:03:04--> 00:03:53

point is, when a person is still on the path of his fitrah, then that means that a person has morality in their life. And when a person deviates from the fitrah that Allah created us on than a person becomes immoral, or they have immorality in their life. Now, what is the benefit of rabada? The benefit of Riba is that it keeps a person on the path of morality. A person always understands their purpose of life, a person who always understands what what they're about to do is a right or is a wrong? So first of all, is that in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa taala. He talks about a bad day. In fact, he talks about salad pickers when we talk about a bad the greatest aspect of a Buddha.

00:03:53--> 00:04:47

And the very first thing we all question about on the Day of Judgment is sloth and Allah subhanho wa Taala he tells us automa or here at Camille Kitabi, we're active in Salah. This is Allah telling the Prophet alayhi salam or to Loma or here in a year that recite on to the people what has been revealed to you that and then he says Oklahoma Oh Haley community Tabby will optimise Salah and established a solid, then he says in a solid 10 Heron Hill fascia you will Moncure solid has the power solid has the ability to refrain a person to stop a person from doing what l fascia fascia is immorality in morality, well Moncure and evil deeds mean that salad has the capacity to create

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

enough discipline within a person that they will stay away from immorality whenever there's a situation that they could become immoral or they are surrounded by immoral people and they can easily fall

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

All into immorality, they stopped themselves right away. Why? Because they have a habit of sloth. Now, I have to say this.

00:05:09--> 00:05:57

Many parents are very concerned about the spirituality of their children. And rightfully they should be, we all should be, because of the situation that's taking place and so forth. We all should be worried about it. But at the same time, we have to also understand that if you really want your kids to stay away from these kinds of things, make them punctual about Salaat. Because what Salah does is that on a five times daily basis, it makes you stand before our Creator. Salam is a situation where we stand before Allah and we are communicating with Allah subhanho wa taala. Imagine if you have a very good friendship with someone and you communicate with them on a daily basis, then if they tell

00:05:57--> 00:06:39

you that you are doing something that is not appropriate, you're doing something that is not correct. I want you to refrain from that. As a result of this friendship, this connection that we have with that person we will say okay, you know what I'll say away from that, the fact that you and I when we say Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah mean, Allah is responding to us. When we say a Rahman Rahim, Allah is responding to us. This is us communicating by the way with Allah subhanho wa taala. I'm saying Maliki or Medina, Allah is responding to that in a sort of monster. Allah is responding to that. So what that does is that it creates some kind of morality within a person and a person has

00:06:40--> 00:07:29

enough HYAH enough morality in their life, that even if they're about to do something that Allah does not want them to do, as out of respect for ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, they stay away from that. And that is why also in the Quran, Allah says, For holla fam embody him holophone there came a generation afterwards that what did they do a BA salata they wasted their slots, and as a result of them wasting their slot. What happened? Allah says, What about OSHA, what they follow their desires. So if we truly want to stick to our deen, we want to stick to our higher we want to stick to our morality, our love, and the fitrah that Allah created you and I on, then we have to stick to our iba

00:07:29--> 00:08:14

and we have to stick to our Salah. So that is that that is the benefit of Riba. Another aspect of morality is that a person has enough morality that when they are in their own personal space, they're still are conducting or they're still, they're still doing the right thing. And the reason why this is very important is because imagine a kid or a student, let's just say, He comes from a very well known family, for example, mother is very well known in the community, father is very well known in the community and so forth. And he knows that or she knows that if I go somewhere and I do something that is wrong. Everyone knows who I am. If someone sees me at the wrong place, then

00:08:14--> 00:08:54

they're going to then they're going to feel like okay, I need to talk to the father of this child. Or I can talk to the mother of this child and so forth. People all times, out of respect for our own parents, we stay away from certain places. But imagine going to a place where no one knows us. No one knows who I am. No one knows my mom, no one knows my dad, no one knows anything about me, if I do something that is wrong. All that they have seen is that this this person, he could be a Muslim. He's a brown person, for example. You know, it could be something right. So what a person does is that a lot of times in their own personal space, they may lose their morality. What Salah does,

00:08:54--> 00:09:36

whatever you buy that does is that even within our own personal space, and even in our private life, even if no one knows us, salad creates a bar that creates morality, even that kind of situation. And the reason why this is very important is because when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sending more Adam in general, the hola wind to Yemen, he gave him three instructions. And by the way, I always say that as parents before you send your kids off to school, give them these three same advices because this was the parting advice of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the very first one was it up dilla hyphema. Couldn't that be conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala wherever

00:09:36--> 00:09:40

you are. Number two is what we see at Al Hasan at a time

00:09:41--> 00:10:00

that always back up something that if you have done something that is wrong, you've committed a sin back it up with something that is good. And number three is will ha that the NASA Beholder can hasten that always treat people with good character? I'm only concerned right now with the very first part. The Why did the prom

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

So some say it that the LA hyphema couldn't be constantly conscious of Allah subhanho wa taala, wherever you are, why? Because the same example I just gave earlier, a person could be in a safe place where everyone knows them, and they do something that is wrong, they might people might see them the wrong way. But imagine going to a place where no one knows you. And that situation when a person has a bad day in their life, they're constantly worshipping Allah subhanho wa taala. Even in those kinds of situations, this riba that will create morality and Taqwa in their life. And the third thing is when it comes to morality, and the last point inshallah for today's hot today,

00:10:39--> 00:11:21

you will find a lot of people that they have good o'clock, but they don't have something in life, which is called a moral compass, they don't have something that is called a moral compass, a moral compass basically means is that you see something that is wrong. And you are if you, if you are against it, that's a sign that you have a moral compass, that means that you have enough morality that is pointing you what, what a compass does is pointing in the right direction. What your morality does is that it points you in the right direction. There are some people who may have, in general, very good o'clock with others, but they don't have a moral compass, meaning that if they

00:11:21--> 00:11:57

see someone doing something that is wrong, they don't have enough in their life, enough morality in their life, to point them in the right direction, they may be supporting something that is completely that is completely wrong. And that's why today Subhanallah, you know, with all these politicians, these corrupt politicians who are supporting this genocide, in Palestine, and so forth, we talk about not their morality, we talked about their moral compass, that they don't have enough morality in their life, to point them in the right direction, the fact that you find so many Israeli people, while there are a lot of Israeli people who are against this whole genocide, there are a lot

00:11:57--> 00:12:39

of Israeli people who are openly saying, Yeah, go ahead and kill all these children, go ahead and kill all these babies. That is not fitrah that is called that you don't have a moral compass. And you don't have enough, you don't have enough morality in your life that can point you in the right direction. In fact, you have a compass that is malfunctioning, that is punching you in the right direction, and you become so so ill in terms of your morality, you become so corrupt in terms of in terms of our morality, that instead of seeing something that is wrong, when you see something that is wrong, instead of saying, This is wrong, the same people what they're saying is that yeah, let

00:12:39--> 00:13:17

them go and kill as many people as it is, even as Muslims, the fact that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say that no people are supposed to be killed under any circumstances. There are some here and there situations such as an award and so forth. But women are off limits, children are off limits, sanctuaries are off limits, trees are off limits, and many other things are considered as off limits. Yet these people don't have enough of a moral compass, that will tell them that this is wrong under all circumstances. This is what a bad that creates or a bad that creates morality. Then number two is a bad that creates morality in our private life, even in our own personal life.

00:13:17--> 00:13:58

And not only that, but on a social scale on a social level, a bar that creates morality, even on a social on a social level, that if socially, we see something that is wrong, we say that our fitrah has taught us Allah has taught us this is wrong. I don't care who's doing it. This is absolutely that is wrong. This is called a moral compass. In the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there were times where he even he saw something that is wrong, and he told his own Sahaba I don't care if you did it, but what you did was absolutely wrong, and he would hold the Sahaba accountable. This is called a moral compass. This is something that many times our youth, our

00:13:58--> 00:14:40

children, even adults may not have. But what everybody does is that it creates data within our life. So that is why we need to always take our a badass seriously, always. And when we conduct our ABA, the last thing I will say is, when we do our ABA, the only way we can get the true benefits of ABA is that if we conduct it correctly, it cannot be that where I conduct my ABA in a way where I'm just trying to I see it as a burden, and I'm just trying to take it off my shoulders as a burden. No, everybody there has to be conducted and offered in a way that we mean it. We are taking pride into it and put we put sincerity into that ribeye that only then that a bada will have an impact in our

00:14:40--> 00:14:59

life. Ask Allah subhana without to make us from the obedient May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who truly worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us amongst those who benefit from our Ibadah in this dunya and akhira and Mirabella Allah mean what is that Kamala?
