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

For the last several weeks after several Fudger we on Saturdays we have been talking about the signs of the munafo And

00:00:07--> 00:00:09

can anyone remember what we talked about last week?

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

was the thing that we talked about last week?

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

Anyone?

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

Yes.

00:00:19--> 00:00:20

Was the face of

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

excuse me.

00:00:28--> 00:01:08

That was regarding the signs of weak Iman. We talked about the after South Asia. Stars. Okay, so we had talked about betrayal, deceit, cheating others. The Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ayatollah Malathi fella either had the caliber, when he talks he lies. When he entrusted someone with something, they betrayed that trust. And when they make a promise they make whenever they make promises, they break those promises we talked about last week, that all these three things if you think about it, this is betrayal is deceit is cheating others and so forth. So this these are the signs of the of the mafia owner we also talked about in the past many others And subhanAllah

00:01:09--> 00:01:52

half of them I have right now in total Fajr he recited a portion of Sir Toba that this goes even beyond that, where Allah subhanho wa Taala he begins to highlight the characteristics of the munafo on one by one when Allah says Allah Manasa ona Willman Africa to bow to whom and bow and one by one Allah subhanaw taala he misses those today inshallah I want to finish off the series by mentioning the last two or three that are prevalent characteristics of the monastic on the very first one is that these are people who do everything only only to impress others and only only to show off to others. Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Quran, in the limoneira Felina you have your own

00:01:52--> 00:02:32

Allahu Allahu wa your own home. You don't how often does it happen? That you and I we are doing something to show off to someone else. But deep down inside our heart, we are saying that I'm doing it for them and I'm doing also for Allah subhanho wa Taala is almost as if we're trying to deceive Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in the Quran, that those who have these Nefab characteristics they choose, they think that they're deceiving Allah, but they're deceiving themselves in them whenever you Lena you hide your own Allah wha hoo ha ha they are home. But one of the things about these kinds of people is that when it comes to doing any act of good, they do not do it for Allah

00:02:32--> 00:03:19

subhanho wa Taala they do it to show off to others. They do it to impress others, and Allah says will either call mu either Salah te amo Kusa, Allah, you're all and NASA. Why are the pregnant salad only to in only to impress others and this is why it also allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in a hadith that the two Salaat the two Salah de are the most difficult, the most burdensome on any hypocrite is salted Fajr en sada. Ayesha. Why do you think that for the hypocrite southern Fajr in southern Asia was very difficult is because that they knew that if I come because remember, in the time of the Prophet sallallahu, ala he was setting them. The source of light that came inside Medina

00:03:20--> 00:04:01

was one year before the Prophet saw some he passed away. Otherwise, it was darkness. The measured number we in itself, it was date palm trees, it was dirt didn't even have carpet like we had they had dirt. And this is why we find in the even in the books of FIP, that when you go into sujood, and you have dirt, should you wipe it off or not. Why? Because you have to understand context, you have to understand that in this inside the Prophet's mosque, they never had the facilities that we have today nowadays. So think about it used to be pitch dark, the moon, the light that would come from the moon was their source of light. So for a hypocrite at that time, he knew that if I went for

00:04:01--> 00:04:42

subtle Fudger, no one wouldn't see me that I'm convinced. If I came from Southern Asia, no one will see that I'm coming from southern Russia. But if I came from Lahore, they will see me that I'm here for Lord, if they see if I if I go for officer or for Maghrib they can see me that I'm here. But for certain Fajr in southern Asia, since they cannot see me, why would I go anyway, this is the nature of a hypocrite that every single time they want to do something they're more worried about that can I impress someone else or not? And subhanAllah This is why I mentioned in one of our previous sessions, that Nephi is a modeled is a sickness. I mentioned this before you know why? Because when

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

you have this nature that I have to impress him, I have to impress him, let me do this to impress them, then there is a never ending story. This is the nature of our slavery when it comes to Allah subhanho wa Taala when you try to impress others, with Allah who you're trying to impress

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

As impress and impress and you will never be able to impress and this is why we always say you press Allah you impress Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is more easier for a person and that is why so beautifully Allah mentions a parallel in the Quran. Nonetheless this parallel in the Quran, de is in reference to a person who does *. But this also applies to a person who tries to do things to impress people versus impressing ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala and earning the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah gives the example of a man, one man who has one master versus one slave who has many masters. Now if that slave who has many masters, he tries to impress one slave at one master, the

00:05:47--> 00:06:33

other master may get upset, the other master may feel neglected. So that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, Does this make sense that this person is trying to serve so many people or does it make sense that this one slave is trying to only serve one Allah Subhana Allah Dorabella who masala Raja and fie he should walk out Omoto Sharkey Sunnah wa Raju and selama lira Joel Halley yester we Ernie masala Are they both equal, they are not equal, highly yester we are and in what Salah Al Hamdulillah he but at certain whom Allah Allah moon so this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala told us in the Quran, that we have to stop doing things to impress people, I understand that Allah subhanho

00:06:33--> 00:07:10

wa Taala has created us in a way that we love people's appreciation. And there's nothing wrong with that. But we don't do it for people's appreciation. We do it because I want Allah's pleasure at the end of the day, because it is Allah's pleasure, that is the key to paradise. And that is why I do it. Now on another note, I do have to mention this, because this happens so often when it comes to organizations today. And today, we see that today, people are giving sadaqa and they're taking selfies they're taking, they're doing some good, and they're taking pictures and videos and so forth. There's a difference. I do want to explain this difference, because it happens often that

00:07:10--> 00:07:52

this question does come to me I see organizations nowadays who are especially in the business of charity, you know, one is to take the charity, one is dispensing the charity and so forth, they have to show their donors that their donation is going in the hands of the right people. So if they take a video, and they take photos and so forth, that their donation is going in the right place, there's nothing wrong with that. However, one thing that has to be kept in mind is the person who's giving the donation see one is taking the past 101 Is the person who's taking the video or the photo that to ensure the donors that their donation is going in the right place. That's one thing, but the

00:07:52--> 00:08:31

person who's actually serving the food, or those who are actually on the ground serving and distributing the food and dispensing this a cat and so forth. For them, they should have a clean heart that when I'm doing this, I'm not I'm not going to stand in a place where the photo is going to be taken so that I'm in the picture. That is where the comes into the picture. So this is why it is very important. I'm not saying that you don't go and help out. I'm not saying for anyone who's actually part of a charitable organization that you don't do your work no more certainly you do your work but while we are in this, we always take an account of our intention and making sure we're

00:08:31--> 00:09:16

doing it only only for Allah subhanho wa Taala sake. The next thing is that these are people that will either and they don't either slotted to Hulu ha who's the one well arriba when the time slot comes where you call me either sloty or Musala when the time of salada comes they become lazy. So it is very important, especially when it comes to our children. Parents I understand how difficult it is nowadays to teach your children about salad to make them punctual about salad but it's a battle I understand. See there are children today are not like us, or many of us here that we were told to three times and we're praying salad, these kids they need a push over and over again. And so that is

00:09:16--> 00:09:56

why I always urge parents to keep on pushing your children. Today you may not see the benefit but one day later you will see the benefit when you keep on pushing your kids for slot inshallah adventure they will pick up the nature of being punctual about your salad and when it comes to salad as we find in the Quran. I live in a home Utah una where I am now on my own. These are people that do not fit on when they will stand up for salad. They will be lazy. They will just try they will try to get through their salad without any concentration without any devotion as if it is a burden as if they are doing a favor to Allah subhanho wa Taala that they're standing ascending and solid and find

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

the last thing when we talk about them we're not your own are such that we

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

Before I mentioned this, I want you to, I want you to think about this for a moment. Imagine there's a person in the community who is always trying to discourage people from doing good things. Imagine there's a person who's always doing things to show off to others. Imagine there's a person who's always criticizing anyone who's doing any kind of good and so forth. Imagine that one person has attacked you personally. Imagine that one person has attacked, your family has attacked even your family and so forth. What would you say about that kind of person? What would you say about that kind of person? If you knew that they're about to pass away? What would you say about that person?

00:10:39--> 00:11:13

If you knew that he has passed away more naturally, naturally, I understand. We're human beings, we might feel, you know, okay, you know, hamdulillah he's passed away, you know, or he's gone, you know, and so forth. This is why we say the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was Rama to LinHai Lamine Abdullah bin obey. He not only did he attack the mission of the prophets of Salaam, this is the same man who said to the unsought Yeah, oh Luna, la Raja Ana, el Medina, the Ukri, general Azumino.

00:11:15--> 00:11:57

This is the same person who put a a who put a a slander, who slandered our mother, I should have the Allahu anha This is the same person who attacked the family of the Prophet sallallahu ala he was setting up this the same person who tried to always be a hinderance in the mission of the Prophet sallallahu it was setting up yet Rasul Allah saw some teaches us a very valuable lesson. And that was the he was Rahmatullah Allah mean, he was Rama to the Alameen for a reason. When Abdullah bin obey was on his deathbed, his son comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and informs him that my father is about to pass away. What did Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam do? He took off

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

his shirt? And it's not that as if Ross wa salam had a wardrobe full of shirts. No, that was not the case of the Prophet Salam. Often we find that he probably had one just to he would wash one and wear one. This was the nature of the province of Salem. The problem was wearing a shirt. He took off the shirt and he says put this on your father. This is the Father This is the man who hurt Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at every single step at every single opportunity, who sided with the Jews of Medina, over his reciting with the Muslims and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who always was an ally to binocular Eva and balloon Aveda and

00:12:40--> 00:13:22

over Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yet Ross was some he took off his shirt, and he gave it to his son. And not only that, but when the time came for his southern Janaza he was informed that Abdullah Abdullah has passed away and he says Let me pray Salah Janaza on him and he stood up and right between him and the janazah on whenever the hot off comes. He says Yara Sula, what are you doing? He says this is the man who said you owe Lunella Raja Anna Eden Medina, regional Azzaman Allah this the same person who said that when we get back to Medina, the dishonorable he referred to the prophet as dishonorable, he referred to the Mahajan own as dishonorable, and he said that the

00:13:22--> 00:14:04

dishonorable Will Will, Will exile and they will remove those who are the honorable remove will remove the dishonorable from Medina, when we returned back to Medina, they were on the way back to Medina from burning oil, musta, left and so forth. And at that time, he says almond ricotta was saying, isn't this the same man who said this? And he says, Yes, but move out of my way. He says, Yeah, so this is same person who put a slander and he standard, our mother I showed you Allah Juana and he says, all my I understand move hours away. And one by one on one Mahato the Allah on he went through the list of every single way that Abdullah bin obey has hurt Rasul Allah Azza. Salam, and to

00:14:04--> 00:14:50

every single one was was salam. He said, Omar, I understand move out of the way Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, despite all this, think about being reminded of all the pain at that same time, and yet, he is Rahmatullah Alameen. He said, I will still pray southern janazah and he prayed and he led the subtle janazah It was after this, that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he received a way from Jabra his Sudan that Allah says in the Quran, led to suddenly Allah had the Minamata other than one at a Kumada company going forward, you know, who are the monarchy own. You are to never ever praise a lot of upon these people, and you are to never ever stand on their grave

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

out of respect, no matter how much you love them, but you will not stand upon them in whom kufr rule Billahi will be lost solely he will matter to

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

unfasten on. These are people who did go for what Allah who did go for Withrow His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they died while home fast on and they were sinners. So that is why we learned from this beautiful nature of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that in this case, he was ordered by Allah subhanho wa taala. And hence he changed his nature afterwards, while we learn from this nature of the Prophet SAW Selim, that even when we have these kinds of people in our community, and we're going to have these kinds of people who have these kinds of characteristics, but once again, it's not our place that we are judgmental is on our place that we put labels on

00:15:35--> 00:16:15

others, we leave there matter to Allah subhanho wa taala. But if there's a person like this, who does pass away in our community, then what needs to be our nature towards them? What needs to be our do as regarding them, we have to always exhibit the mercy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from amongst those whose hearts are always clean from the FOP, may Allah subhanho wa Taala give us death amongst the believers May Allah subhanho wa Taala raise us amongst the otamatone, a shahada, a Solly Hone on the day of judgment, and may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us in our upcoming generations from the FOP Amitabha Alameen Desikan Mala
