Salam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Jemaine, I'm about one of the things that we that makes us love our parents so much is the fact that they taught us so much. And they taught us so much about the future. They taught us that what we should what we should do, in certain circumstances. If we love our parents so much because of this reason, think about how much we should love us. We also Allahu alayhi wa sallam think about living in times, and we have absolutely no guidance. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, one thing that we find is a hadith is

00:01:03 --> 00:01:45

that he taught us about the certain circumstances, certain situations that will come in the future people and how they will change in the future. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he taught us what things we should stay away from and what things are at that particular time, in times of challenge in times of difficulty, what should we hold on to? Today I want to share with you a very, very beautiful Hadith narrated by Omar ibn Hussain or the Allah Tada and this is a Hadith found in Jami or Timothy, where in the Prophet sallallahu, it was some he says that hiatal pneus he says that which are the best people, he says Calderone, the best people are the people of my generation, for

00:01:45 --> 00:02:29

millennia Luna home, and then the generation that will come afterwards for millennia Luna home, and then the generation that will come afterwards. Now let's stop here for a second and let's try to understand this, this saying of the Prophet. This is also a hadith that has been mentioned very much in the books of FIP. In fact, even if you pick up a book, such as a book, named as Anwar Faqad, written by Ibrahim Ibrahim Musa A shout to be Rahmatullah. Hi Lee, it is a book known on the subject of pseudo fake the laws of FIP. He has actually written in there that this part of the Hadith actually tells us that when it comes to Islamic knowledge, when it comes to just learning about a

00:02:29 --> 00:03:10

hadith and deceit and fifth and so forth, the people who are the closest to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in terms of generation, we should always look up to them and see what they have to say, meaning that what the Prophet SAW Allah or some has said, how the Sahaba have understood the Hadith, or anything they have learned from the prophet, and then the tambourine and the tablet, Tabby or even whatever they have learned from each other, we should look up to them, and we should see what they have said. Now, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continuing with the Hadith he says that then such people will come afterwards and he says that there are three things about these

00:03:10 --> 00:03:54

people. Number one, so Maya, geo calm embody him, yet the same man una when you hit buenas semana, where you are tuna shahada Cabela, a news Aloha, the Prophet saw some says three things number one is that these people they will be avaricious. And not only that, but they will love good they will love gluttony. And the third thing the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he says that they will give shahada and testimony, and they're not even asked to give their testimony. So let's talk about these three things because today's Subhan Allah, whatever the Prophet SAW, some said 1400 years ago, today Subhanallah we find the same exact thing happening with this hadith is actually telling us brothers

00:03:54 --> 00:04:38

and sisters is times are gonna get bad times eventually are going to get bad. In fact, it will miss odo the allotted iron. When explaining this hadith he says that this heavy does not mean that one year a ruler will be good and then the next year the ruler will get bad. This hadith does not mean that one year Allah will send immense amount of rain. And the next year Allah will not send rain. He goes that is not what the meaning of this hadith is he even Massoud or the yellow Dawn who says that this hadith is telling us that the Prophet SAW Allah Anwar is someone saying that during his time, and the few generations that will come after him, they are good, but times are going to eventually

00:04:38 --> 00:04:59

get bad and it will Massoud says Are you allowed to iron that a time will come that even if people will stand up for justice. When people will stand up for what is right. They will be pushed down Subhanallah today we are living exactly in a world that where when you stand up sometimes for what is right

00:05:00 --> 00:05:40

You get pushed down, you will be humiliated. You will be sometimes you can become even a victim. If you stand up for what is right, and go back to the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we're in he talks about knowledge to like in the Hadith he says that knowledge will as the times get closer to the day of judgment, knowledge will be taken away from people. What does that mean? It means that the Prophet alayhi salam says that a time will come when people who have no knowledge will give fatwa. And they are not qualified to give fatwa. They don't have the traditional. They don't have the traditional training. And they have no training none whatsoever in giving fatwa, but

00:05:40 --> 00:06:21

they will give fatwa and because of this, Jehovah will spread across the earth. So going back to the three things the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi, wasallam, you talked about earlier, I want to quickly touch upon those three things. The very first thing is the prophet Allah he says that these people, they will be avaricious. What does that mean? It means that you are so greedy, that you just want more and more And subhanAllah when a person is so greedy, this leads a person to lying. This leads a person to cheat other people. This leads to people stealing from other people. And this is a time that today Subhanallah we are living in those kinds of times. How much today? are we lying to each

00:06:21 --> 00:07:02

other? How much are we cheating each other stealing from one another? Why? Because I want more and more dunya just because I want to climb up the ladder of my company. Just because I want more and more. I'm going to lie, cheat and steal just because this is that greed and SubhanAllah. Remember, remember that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he has talked about this that how greedy is a human being he says though under the ebony Adam Awadhi I'm in the habit a habit in your corner who idea that if he has one value of gold, he's gonna want two values of gold if he has two values of gold, he's gonna want three we just want more and more. But this is why it is so important for us

00:07:02 --> 00:07:42

brothers and sisters is that we have whatever Allah gives us Alhamdulillah whatever is written in our codon, Alhamdulillah there is nothing wrong in going and pursuing more they make that very clear to for person chooses to be and they want to be a millionaire Alhamdulillah no problem, but not at the expense of your deen you should not be lying, cheating and stealing from other people. Just so that you one more. This is the very first thing the Prophet SAW Allah or somebody mentioned. The second thing that profile is I mentioned is gluttony. Gluttony is is also a sign of greed. But this is that you just want more and more. And this is an another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:07:42 --> 00:08:26

sallam he mentioned that these are people, he referred to them as fatness. Now, what that means is that they become so greedy, that they take away from others, and they simply just, they fill up their stomach while others are deprived. Now Subhanallah you know, today, if you look at the world that we live in, we have so many countries, so many people who are deprived from food, they are deprived from water. And the question that we always hear is that is there enough in this dunya? You know, subhanAllah, I took a once an environmental science class at a local college. And I remember the professor kept on talking about this, that one of the biggest fears of The Economist are that

00:08:27 --> 00:09:12

there is less resources on earth, and the population is growing day by day. And so of course, this the demand is so high, the supply is getting less and this is something that's making money people very concerned. You know, and if you think about it, first of all is the our deen teaches us that when you come in this dunya, you bring your own risk. Allah subhana wa Taala has assigned each of us a risk. And today the problems that we see on Earth, where people don't have clean and clean water to drink, they don't have access to good and healthy food. Why is that? Is not because that we have less resources. Once again, every person comes and Allah will provide them. But today we have so

00:09:12 --> 00:09:54

much greed. Today we have so much greed. The reality is that there is enough water, there is enough water for everyone to have clean water I'm talking about. There's enough food on this earth for everyone to have. But what we see is that there are people who have a lot and they just keep on collecting, collecting, gathering, gathering, gathering, and those people who don't have, they're being deprived. This is what the Prophet SAW Allah or some he's called and he's referring to as gluttony. The time will come that people will become this way. And so Subhanallah in our times, we see exactly this. What should we do in this times? This is why our Dean has taught us to give sadaqa

00:09:54 --> 00:10:00

or Dean has taught us that you pay your Zakat and give to those people who are in need because Allah

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

is aware of this imbalance that will happen in society in order to keep everything balanced? Give so the content gives a cut. The last thing the Prophet SAW Allah why some he talks about is the time will come. People will give testimony, and they're not even asked to give testimony. You know Subhanallah you know when we look at our time today, one of the saddest things that we see today is that today we always want to come forward and do those things that the Sahaba or the Allah Tala and home would stay away from, they were scared of doing. For example, fatwa, Fatah was one thing that Sahaba would stay away from. If once the hobby was asked a fatwa, he will say go and ask the other

00:10:41 --> 00:11:24

person and the second Savio say go and ask the other person, they will stay away so much from giving fatwa. Today, everyone is issuing their own fatwa, the Sahaba wrote on whom would they would be scared, and they will avoid leading the slot, because there is so much accountability. But today, we are living in times where every person wants to lead the slot. Likewise, the Sahaba robiola on whom they will stay away from giving shahada, they will give their stay away from being from giving testimony. Why? Because there's two things, either you're concealing testimony, you're concealing information. And that's also wrong. If you know something, then you should say something. And number

00:11:24 --> 00:12:10

two is that you are giving false testimony and the Prophet sallallahu. It was some he says that there are three things that are considered as Akbar Al Qaeda. And we'll look about the worst when it comes to the major sins. These are the worst of the three. These are three major sins, though amongst the worst of the major sins. One is Ishaku biller is to associate partners with Allah subhanho wa taala. While open while he then to be disrespectful to your parents. And number three is number three is what is to give a false testimony. Now think about this. When I say testimony, it does not only mean to go in a courthouse and give a false testimony. false testimony means that even

00:12:10 --> 00:12:50

standing up on someone's side, or to give a testimony that what they are saying is right. Let's just say you stand on someone's side today, just because you like them, you have no idea whether they did something right or did something wrong. But just because he's my friend, because she's my friend, whatever they're going to say, I'm going to send on their side. And I'm going to testify that what they did is right, that that is a place of our concern. Remember, testimony does not only mean giving our testimony in a courthouse, it means that anywhere even if there's a conflict between some people, and just because your friend is saying something, and whether you're not seeing whether it's

00:12:50 --> 00:13:29

right or wrong, but you just want to give their side just because they're your friend and you'll give it false testimony, or you know that they are your friend and you're going to conceal testimony. This is where it is something very important that we are considering a we are we are doing and we are committing a major sin. So this is why it is so important. If we want to be from the best of the people that probably some has said that these are those generations. But it doesn't mean we cannot be the best of the people. We even during these times. When people are avaricious. The people are involved in gluttony and people are giving false testimonies against each other or

00:13:29 --> 00:14:11

concealing information. If we change that trend, if I am saying the truth, if I'm not coming in gluttony, if I am being if I'm sharing with everyone, if I'm helping other people, even during this time, I can be also from the best people. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that in times of difficulty in these challenging times, may Allah subhanaw taala keep us on the side of good. May Allah keep us on the side of those people who follow the Quran and they follow the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and may Allah keep us away from being associated with those people or being along or being with those people who have these three things. I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to protect us

00:14:11 --> 00:14:18

all and to keep us safe immunoblotted me does akmola hide a salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
