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


00:03:02 --> 00:03:12

and yet he made them forget into what the who are in Allah to Weber Rahim. So the Allah Allah.

00:03:13 --> 00:03:25

Allah, Allah wa COVID Had he had you Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was showing morning, to have Rockwell important that they are going to be the art in

00:03:29 --> 00:03:41

respective brothers and sisters. Have you ever wondered and asked ourselves, this Islam that Allah has bestowed upon us, he has graciously given to us.

00:03:42 --> 00:03:45

When Islam first came in what was the purpose of Islam?

00:03:46 --> 00:04:12

The purpose of Islam was to bring people into the Oneness of Allah subhanho wa taala. Other scholars will give you other reasons why Islam was given to us. But I want you to reflect upon the time when Islam came, reflect upon the conditions and the circumstances in the world, the environment and the society the province of our body was in and was living within

00:04:14 --> 00:04:17

when we study the sila Dipankar League and so now we learned about him

00:04:18 --> 00:04:28

that he was a time when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam he stood up for social justice. It was a time when girls are being burned alive.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:33

It was a time when people's rights are being taken away.

00:04:34 --> 00:04:41

So higher life you study the Quran. You study through the feet. Allah talks about how he protected Macau

00:04:42 --> 00:04:52

when you study so long range of our talks about how he gave Makkah, an amazing economy. And that's why Allah subhanho wa taala. Then he says for the

00:04:53 --> 00:04:59

faith. If I have given you security, I have given you economy. I've given you a great financial system.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:39

And then it is important that you worship Allah subhanho wa taala. But then in the following surah is sort of my own Allah He tells us, and he highlights the injustices that were taking place in Bubka, Inca Levy, you can think will be Dean, Fidel, you can let me do my team, when these orphans would come and they would ask from the custodians of the Kaaba, when they were coming as the leaders of Makkah, Allah says they don't, they would push away the orphans and the word he adore, who does not mean they will just push, do and push people who are defenseless, they cannot defend themselves.

00:05:40 --> 00:06:27

Allah then says, Well, I hope to escape, they were not giving people their due right? At the end of the surah, he says what you have now on my own, that they will stop, deny what is my own, something that is so insignificant, that if you gave it, it will not affect you. For example, you came inside the budget, and you're walking down, you put your hand inside your pocket, you find $1 Bill crunched up, and you just put that into the box. To you, this is so insignificant, that $1 being taken away from you, it's not gonna really affect you. But yet the Polish, they will not even give that to the people in a time like that Allah subhanaw taala he brought Islam he put he gave Islam to Muhammad

00:06:27 --> 00:06:34

was was a low volume seminar. And one of the primary reasons I'm giving this lab is to protect people's rights

00:06:35 --> 00:07:21

to preserve people's honor and dignity. That is why after Islam, they stopped burning the girls. That is why after Islam, the Prophet SAW all while he was on he emphasized about people's rights. When you reflect on the story of the Hijra of the very persecuted over the second digit in Islam, to Abyssinia and to Hampshire, when Jonathan will be alone, and he's standing right before the judging. What is he telling the judge, he says we were people that we used to kill one another. We used to be after one another. Revenge was always on our mind. But when Islam came, it gave us a sense of life. We began to respect one another, we began to look out for the rights of one another and this is what

00:07:22 --> 00:07:28

Islam does. And that's why at the very end of the blog, the Prophet SAW Rasul Allah, he was setting up

00:07:29 --> 00:07:51

the only 100 that he performed, he's standing in alpha, and he's giving his most famous which we all know the number of 100 with the last sermon, in that sermon that will go what is the Prophet SAW Allah, it was somebody he says, he says, Are you a nurse, or people in the demand?

00:07:56 --> 00:07:58

And he says, ILA and to

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

government, the young people would rather be shiny couldn't have been political harder. That just as you people regard this month,

00:08:10 --> 00:08:56

the month of the AJA this day, the DE LA and the city, the Lana, our via the way you can say the sacred, so is the blood of your Muslim brother. So is the honor of your Muslim brother also. This is why this is one of the reasons Allah gave us this knowledge, that we have to worry about one another, we have to fulfill the rights of one another. And let us keep in mind is that there are people we are so we are so eager to fulfill the rights of Allah, that in many cases, we believe violate the rights of others. We don't look after the rights of others. And this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala he tells us in the Quran, that what can we do to fulfill the rights of others. Now

00:08:56 --> 00:09:12

one of the things that we can do, to protect the honor to protect the dignity and to give respect to someone else, is to use our tongue. This gift that has been given to us by Allah subhanho wa Taala to use it in the right way.

00:09:13 --> 00:09:17

Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran, he says, Oh Raha man.

00:09:18 --> 00:09:19

What is the word?

00:09:21 --> 00:09:31

It means the one who is extremely merciful. He is so merciful that He has taught us the Quran, Allah man who are unlimited Quran,

00:09:33 --> 00:09:46

then he says, Allah inside, he has created a human being. And then he used the same word which he used for the Quran, when He says I'll never use the same word and he says, I love

00:09:47 --> 00:09:59

he created a human being. And then he taught him the ability to speak, he came to him the power of speech. Now when Allah has given us this power of speech, how should

00:10:00 --> 00:10:22

We use the speech of Allah, how should we use his ability to speak? How should we guard the tongue? We find that the Quran is filled with advices. The Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is filled with advices SubhanAllah. When you study the Quran, there is a story there's a surah in the Quran, which is called pseudo Madras.

00:10:24 --> 00:10:29

And some people, some are about they say that the name of this, the name of the surah is Susan.

00:10:30 --> 00:10:32

It takes a social etiquettes.

00:10:33 --> 00:10:44

If you send a pseudo from beginning to end, every single story in that sutra, every single advice in the Surah is related to the tongue.

00:10:45 --> 00:11:15

In the very beginning, Allah says a lot about the meaning of the line you are assuming he wants to Allah, that your decisions never ever come until the disease of Allah subhanho wa taala. When it comes to the matters of Allah and His Prophet, sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam, your opinions are irrelevant. Your thoughts, your ideology, your psychology is irrelevant before Allah is Baba Salah It was then he says that swagger can focus out in Lubbock compose his conclusion.

00:11:17 --> 00:11:18

He says,

00:11:20 --> 00:11:31

Do not raise your voices, and for the purpose of law while he was setting up once again, connected to the tongue, that Allah subhanaw taala it talks about into the majority says yeah,

00:11:33 --> 00:11:54

in Japan, in general, that when someone brings you some news, before you take the next step, and before you react to the news, investigate, ask, inquire, again related to the term. The next idea, the next main, the main, the next main thing mentioned the surah. We're in PA if I can

00:11:55 --> 00:12:43

do for us to obey. If there's a conflict between two Muslim groups, or there's a conflict between two people in the community, then how are you supposed to resolve that conflict once again, associated with the tongue that Allah hears, He says six things. Number one is that against our own movement, all men do not make a mockery of one another. Don't make a mockery, again, to the tongue. Today, how we make a mockery of others, how we make a mockery of other people's cultures, of other people's tongues, and other people's backgrounds and ethnicities. We all week, we all do this, we're all involved in this, we need to ask Allah Subhana Allah to help us and to protect us. Then he says,

00:12:43 --> 00:12:47

Well, I can have as who will deny us offensive nicknames.

00:12:49 --> 00:12:53

Then he says, Be sensible to sue over that email. What happened is,

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

that was one thing in the middle, he just let them miss one second. Do not defame your brother, do not defend yourself. In fact, as well Allah says, do not defend yourself. Because when you defend others, Allah says in the same in the same surah in the manual, that is why all of you people are brothers, you're like blood brothers. He says when you defame another Muslim brother or sister, you are actually an indirectly defending yourself. Because you're all one. You're defending yourself. That he says yeah, you only need a manager that he will get to stay away from suspicion, again, associated with the tongue.

00:13:35 --> 00:13:55

In the interim, while it just says, when you spy, you spy you can do it physically, or you can do it verbally also, I can't associate it with a tunnel. Then he says, Well, I'm just about to come Baba, and may even do Heba upon one another. Then Allah Subhana Allah gives us an example of a you hippo

00:13:56 --> 00:14:21

and yet he he made them forget into Who do you like to eat the flesh of your brother? Let me give you an example to how you can understand this. See, throughout the entire Quran, Allah, He tells us and He gives us many parallels, many examples, but you don't we just go over those examples. We translate those examples that we don't really understand what I was trying to tell us.

00:14:22 --> 00:14:33

Can you imagine? Can you imagine and how disgusting this will be? We all you know we eat every single day. We eat meat time after time.

00:14:34 --> 00:14:38

Imagine meat. There is uncaught

00:14:39 --> 00:14:48

that when you when you cut into it, there's blood coming out of it. How disgusting is that? Would you want to eat that? Absolutely not.

00:14:49 --> 00:14:59

That alasa subhanho wa Taala he magnifies his Exactly. He says imagine you're not just eating an animal, of flesh of an animal. You're eating the flesh of a human being

00:15:01 --> 00:15:02

How disgusting is that?

00:15:03 --> 00:15:16

But no, ALLAH SubhanA he wants to create this disgust within us. So he says, imagine your notice in the United in the meat of a human being, you're eating the meat of your, of your biological brother.

00:15:17 --> 00:15:19

Imagine your brother has died

00:15:20 --> 00:15:23

and you just could have drunk out of him and just put on a plate.

00:15:24 --> 00:15:26

How disgusting is that?

00:15:28 --> 00:15:35

Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us the way you would be disgusting if you had to sit in front of a plate of meat.

00:15:36 --> 00:15:39

Consider Heba more disgusting than that.

00:15:40 --> 00:15:41

How disgusting.

00:15:43 --> 00:15:56

Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us, he tells us, then you go into the following suit the following verses in the same surah so that mantra, Allah says Allah to Allah. Allah talks about few Bedouins, who were living in Medina.

00:15:57 --> 00:16:33

When he was living in Medina, they used to harass people when they used to walk by when they came to our cell alone while he was selling them and they said we have Iman, Allah subhanaw taala. These people they don't have any money because they are misusing their tongue. They hurt others when they caused by them. They misused our tongue, they are offensive. When people walk by them, every single thing that's mentioned in the Sunnah is associated with the tongue. We have to take care of this tongue. It is an Amana that has been given to us by Allah subhanho wa taala. And we have to use it in the right way.

00:16:36 --> 00:16:45

Well, he went on Kindle episode, a lot of it was set up and he says manager, what is success? What is success? Where does success live?

00:16:46 --> 00:16:53

Or if so long it was that he mentioned three things I'm going to mention only one right now, because of time. He says in sick I learned

00:16:55 --> 00:17:00

him Cicala, you Sanic hold on to your tongue.

00:17:01 --> 00:17:31

Why? Because he was a young lady with says himself, that his tongue is one of the greatest amount of Allah subhanho wa taala. He says it is small in terms of his physical form, but the crimes are committed by this are enormous. Imam Shafi Nakamoto by name he says, do not have as we speak, without a need. Because once you say something, you have no control over that, rather than things that you have set. They have control over you.

00:17:33 --> 00:17:58

Do you have a control over you? I'm going to miss one of the above that it says the tongue is that thing that deserves the imprint that deserves imprisonment the most. And other scholars they have said that the tongue is like a beast controlling, you know, when you have a beast, the wild beast, you control it, you tie it up, because if it gets loose, it can harm somebody. People, likewise on Monday said that his tongue is like a beast.

00:18:00 --> 00:18:41

That if you do not control the it can harm not only yourself, but you can harm others. We're such a brother and sisters, we have to care about this tongue. This is a gift that has been given to us by Allah subhanho wa Taala how many times every single day we violate the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala we abandon the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how many times are we talking? We're saying the wrong things. There's profanity. A lot of people we think that when whenever the subject of tongue comes, is only about Viva know, it's about profanity is the way we speak. When we speak. Do we speak in a way that people are offended? Or do we speak in a way that

00:18:41 --> 00:19:23

people like to hear us? When I speak when I use my tongue? Do I use it in the way that people come closer to Allah? subhanho wa taala? Or do when I use my tongue? Does does it become that or when we use our tongue to people go away from religion, that this man comes to the flesh to every single day? And this the way he talks? Is? This is what Islam is. I don't want this. I don't want this. How do we use our tongue? Are we repelling others? Are we really bringing people closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala this has been this is a gift from Allah subhanho wa taala. There are people in this world who don't have the ability to speak. They don't have the ability to speak as their what

00:19:23 --> 00:19:49

they're going through as their families, what they're going through when they cannot understand that people who cannot speak they use sign language. You know how difficult it is for families to communicate with them. When Allah has given this to us, we should use a property may Allah subhanaw taala give us the ability to use this this gift of Allah and the most appropriate way to go longer now what happened before I know where to find out where you get like when they didn't like him and stuff and Allah he will let them waste

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

and how

00:20:00 --> 00:20:06

literally on the line if you don't want to sign when I stopped when I was when I was on the left are my children

00:20:39 --> 00:20:41

how do we use our tongue in the right way?

00:20:42 --> 00:20:50

The one reason I actually picked up this topic today to speak about was because we only have 40 days. We only have 40 days. I told him about

00:20:51 --> 00:20:57

the best way to use his tongue is to remember it wasn't behind what the honor into reciting the Quran.

00:20:58 --> 00:21:17

This Ramadan that is coming. If you have never finished the Quran in Ramadan, make this the first of all God will you will finish the Quran cover to cover us this this is your first opportunity. And if you haven't already done it, then make this the second or third or the next time

00:21:18 --> 00:21:33

not lose this opportunity. Restricted brothers and sisters, the more we read the Quran, the best the best course of action is read the Quran. Understand the Quran, reflect upon the Quran is the most important thing Allah says Allah Allah,

00:21:34 --> 00:21:40

Allah Allah lumen of Allah, that don't you ponder over the Quran or is there a lot on your heart?

00:21:42 --> 00:21:48

Allah wants us to reflect, we are told to reflect and we should reflect read

00:21:49 --> 00:22:34

everything every single day number one take some time out. During the weekends, we are going to have progress after several Fajr we're not going to be as long we'll take all the way to shovel we're going to have hundreds of children on the weekends. But we will also give you some time to read the Quran. To build on your spirituality, to build on your connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala use that time wisely. Start reading the Quran from now. Now we're going to move on and start reading the Quran from now. Even it may be just three lines a day if you are not in the habit of reading, start with three lines a day. We have 40 days left, which is approximately seven weeks or five weeks, that

00:22:34 --> 00:23:16

over five weeks, six weeks. First week retreat three lines every single day but be consistent. Next day, next week, go to half a page, the week after that go to a full page after after a matter of time to realize on your own that you read two three pages a day. Inshallah when Ramadan comes you can finish a dose every single day inshallah. But that is the best way to use our time to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala every Sunday morning we see you at the budget and we're learning to us for what reason, so that every single moment in our life, when we're going to the restroom, you remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala when I'm leaving the restaurant, I will remember Allah subhanho

00:23:16 --> 00:23:23

wa Taala when I entered my home, leave my home, I remember Allah subhanho wa Taala and I'm using my tongue to regrow was behind her with

00:23:24 --> 00:23:26

die is the most important thing.

00:23:28 --> 00:23:30

I want to I want you all to think about this.

00:23:31 --> 00:23:39

Imagine, and I don't mean to scare any of you when I say this, but imagine right now you are about to leave this world.

00:23:41 --> 00:23:44

Or imagine. I think some of you already scared.

00:23:45 --> 00:23:50

Imagine you met a friend of yours and you have a friend, someone who's very dear to you.

00:23:51 --> 00:23:55

And someone's telling you that you know what, this is the last time you will meet him.

00:23:56 --> 00:23:58

Give him some advice.

00:23:59 --> 00:24:01

What advice would you give him?

00:24:03 --> 00:24:16

It takes time to think about it. If I mean my friend for the very last time in my life. What advice now told me you can give only one advice. What is the most important advice you're gonna get from him?

00:24:17 --> 00:24:20

Listen to this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:24:22 --> 00:24:25

He is sending more I will no longer live to Yama.

00:24:26 --> 00:24:29

And he takes him to this to the outskirts of Medina.

00:24:30 --> 00:24:32

And he says while

00:24:33 --> 00:24:35

I'm sending you as my delegates,

00:24:36 --> 00:24:41

but remember your next time to come to Medina. I will not be here.

00:24:44 --> 00:24:52

While I'm here, this one will go and he hears this and he begins crying. Think about the lump sum saying that next time you come I will not be here.

00:24:53 --> 00:24:55

how devastating that is.

00:24:57 --> 00:24:59

Then he says while

00:25:01 --> 00:25:02

There are many things about something you don't know how to do.

00:25:04 --> 00:25:08

But he says that remember a key one advice in mind? He says what is that advice?

00:25:09 --> 00:25:16

He says, always keep your tongue moist with the vicar of Allah subhanaw taala

00:25:17 --> 00:25:31

think about his muscles All right, so for the last time in his life meeting was with a lot going on, and all the advices he would give to him. This is the most precious advice was given to live with your lover.

00:25:33 --> 00:25:47

Think about the receptive assistance. How important is for us to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala with the tongue that Allah has given us. He's saying, Do not keep your keep your tongue moist with a thicker muscle.

00:25:48 --> 00:26:31

I want you to remember this advice, or the promise of off on a Sunday he gave to model your love anime. And I want you all to remember that advice over and over again. And remember Allah every single day, read Quran every single day. Use this time to reconcile between people rather than causing fitna amongst two people use this term to console people when you see someone who is in the state of depression. Or someone who is stressed out or someone who's in a state of anxiety, instead of coming and increasing interdit pression and their stress, say something so good, that will take the pain away and take their pain away, say something so pleasant, that will take their stress away

00:26:32 --> 00:26:54

and don't take their depression away from their depression their stress will not go away completely, but it will bring them that Sakina it will bring them that content apart and that peace of heart this is why Allah has given us his May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the ability to read the Quran in the month of Ramadan. May Allah subhanaw taala give us the ability to use this time
