said Mr. Aiken Welcome to law here brachetto Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad, what are the early he was a big marine about in the Quran specifically is to note Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned the story of eyeshadow, the Allah Allah and Allah subhana wa Taala proves her innocence in the Quran. Without getting into into the entire story. One of the key things that we learned from this story is that there was an accusation made against our mother, I shadow the yellow to the unhappy and even many Sahaba of the Allah Quran home and there were three that are mentioned specifically in the Sierra, the Prophet

00:01:01 --> 00:01:43

salallahu it was setting up that they were also caught up into this lie and into this slander against our mother Ayatollah Villalta, unhappy before the surah before even this story is mentioned and sort of note Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions that what is supposed to take place? And what are the consequences of a person who accuses their spouse of committing adultery. The point is that one of the key things that we see that takes place within our community, and the one thing that many of us can easily get looped into is creating lies, creating false statements against one another. And I want to share with you a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. First of all, before I

00:01:43 --> 00:02:25

share this hadith, you all know that there is a difference between a minor sin and a major sin. A major sin is that sin that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has mentioned that there is a certain type of punishment for that sin. Now, even amongst those major sins, the question may be asked is that what is the worst of all the major sins? There is actually a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam regarding exactly that. There's a hadith that is found in both Bukhari and Muslim so is Mustafa Kali. The hadith is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once said, Allah will not be Oh Combi Akbar Al Qaeda, earthen Should I not tell you of the worst three things

00:02:25 --> 00:03:06

amongst a major sin? The Prophet sallallahu I assume the Sahaba sitting there they say yo so La Bella jasola indeed tell us Oh, the Prophet O Prophet of Allah, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said three things number one is Rocco Billa. associating partners with Allah subhanho wa taala. And when we talk about shidduch, we have to keep in mind that Sheikh is the type of shirt that we see people doing. Like for example, you know, worshipping Jesus or worshiping any other entity besides Allah subhanho wa Taala that is one type of Sheikh but there is also a shift that takes place within many cultures in Muslim in the Muslim world, such as people going to graves, and

00:03:06 --> 00:03:51

worshipping graves, and doing so due to grace and so forth. This is also a type of shift. Once again, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, Are all the major sins, the three that are the worst is number one, Anish Shah Kabila. The second one is oeko can validate this obedience of parents. And number three, which is the most important thing and it said in the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam that before he mentioned this third one, he was leaning against something and he came forward. Now this act of the Prophet saw some tells you that what he's about to say next is of great importance. He came forward and then he says, For kala Allah wa cola Zoo. He says that specifically

00:03:51 --> 00:04:40

stay away from false statements. And the Rawi the narrator says from Isaiah you Kirby Doha, the province has some he kept on repeating this will hola Zhu, Zhu hut Kula later who circuit that we wish that the person would have stayed quiet like the person kept on repeating it mean that he kept on placing emphasis on this. Now let's talk about false statements. Polar zoo first of all, is that in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, we find two different concepts. We find cola Zoo, and shahada to Zoo and there's a difference between both of them. golas zoo is very general. It is very inclusive, and is inclusive of all different kinds of statements. And then

00:04:40 --> 00:04:59

you have shell shahada to Zulu shahada to Zoo is a false testimony. It is a more specific type type of Zewde but nonetheless we find that both of them in the Quran have been mentioned and in both places ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says that we must stay away from it. Now first of all, let's take out a zoo owners zoo is a

00:05:00 --> 00:05:49

type of false statement that one creates against someone else. Or it could be any kind of lie that someone fabricates for any reason. And Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran Institute hij he mentioned Fajr tenable register Meenal, our Thani Washington Ebola zoo, Allah subhanho wa taala. When talking about shidduch, Allah subhanho wa Taala when associating anything with sherek, Allah subhanaw taala talked about anything, but in this ayah when Allah says stay away from the from this filth in our Arcada which is to worship any other entity besides Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in the same idea Wajir attorney Bucha Allah Zol mean that just like you take a certain effort to

00:05:49 --> 00:06:31

stay away from Shinnick use that same kind of effort and utilize that same kind of effort to stay away from false statements. Now the question that someone may ask is, the Why did Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned false statements along with should in the same idea is simple. When a person does shake with Allah subhanho wa Taala he's creating a lie against Allah. This is why in South Africa, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in your coluna in your kulula like anybody that these are people, that there are such type of people that when they create false statements about Islam, when they say fabrications against Islam, these are lies that they are creating against Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:06:32 --> 00:07:19

So Sheikh is creating lies against Allah. And hola Zeus is creating lies against other people, they both are, in essence, creating lies, fabricating lies, Allah Subhan, Allah is telling us to stay away from that shahada to Zeus, on the other hand, is a type of testimony that a person gives against another person, and they are lying about that about that testimony. In fact, show how to zoom has been also mentioned at the end a suitor for one, ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala mentions that well Lavina Allah Yes, Haroon Azura, that when the signs of being the slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala is that these people do not engage in witnessing to or supporting any kind of lies may even be your own

00:07:19 --> 00:08:06

people may it be even your own family member may it be even for your for the sake of friendship and so forth. You cannot create a lie or give a wrong testimony against someone else. Because this is not the nature of a believer. And subhanAllah we also find there's a Hadith of the Prophet sal Allahu Allah he was sending more in he mentions that if a person has this nature of creating lies, mentioning lies and spreading lies, and then they are supporting that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says mullum Yoda countersued while I'm an OBE, anyone who does not abandon anyone who does not refrain or give up fabricated speech, lies and evil actions. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:08:06 --> 00:08:46

wa sallam says Felicetti Allah He hydroton fee and yet the tama who was shara, who, and this is mentioned in Behati, the Prophet sallahu wa salam says that Allah is not in need of his leaving of his food and drink. Meaning that if a person on one hand creates lies about other people, he gives the wrong testimonies. He's asked that you know what I want you to come and give me support, and the person might be absolutely wrong. And this person says, You know what, you're my friend, I'm gonna give you all the support, whether you are wrong or not, uh, you have my full support. Now, if a person does these kinds of things, the prophet Allah has some saying that, on the other hand, if he

00:08:46 --> 00:09:10

is fasting, he rather not even fast now the point is that as the older man mentioned, that it does not mean that a person just says, Okay, I'm not going to fast, it means that any fast that he is performing, he will not get the reward of that fast, or you will not benefit from that fast because the purpose of fasting is to bring Taqwa into your life. And so on one end, you're fasting and on the other end, you're you are

00:09:11 --> 00:09:52

you're abandoning other people's rights, and you are taking away other people's rights by creating false statements against them and testifying wrongly against other people. So this is why it's very important that especially within our families, especially within our own community members, subhanAllah people are always creating lies about one another. And if you are creating a life first of all, you need to make serious a sincere Toba to Allah subhanho wa taala. But it's also very important for all of us, that if we are put in a position to make a decision, and if I don't know all the facts of the story, I should not make a decision. If I'm asked to come in support a person

00:09:52 --> 00:10:00

and I know that they are wrong. Then as a Muslim standing up for what is right. I need to say that no matter what

00:10:00 --> 00:10:36

It's handy here. Whether I may lose a friendship, a friendship, or I may, you know, lose a friend, I may lose some resources, I may lose some connections, but wrong is wrong. That's what we need to stand up for. Now finally, I'm going to share with you something interesting that we find in the seat of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because this story tells us that what does it mean to stand up for what is right? And what does it mean to stand up against something that is wrong? We all have heard the name of Saad bin Wyeth or the alota on Sagamore, either the Athan was one one of the companions of the Prophet SAW Salem and unsightly companion in particular, someone who was you

00:10:36 --> 00:11:17

know, very beloved to the Prophet Sal, Allahu Allah, he was sending them. And not only that, but once he came, and the Prophet saw some told the Sahaba the stand up for your leader, the Prophet saw some is referring to sod been wild as a leader. And not only that, but we also learned that when SARS been wild, or the yellow dawn he died, what happened, the Throne of Allah subhanaw taala shock and his death. Now, the question is that, why did he have such such a status? Many the ALMA they mentioned that towards the end of his life, he was suffering, he was going through a wound and he died of that wound eventually. But before he died, he was put into a situation to make a judgment

00:11:18 --> 00:11:57

about two different types of people. On one end, you have bunu Cordova, but no Cordova was a a tribe in Medina, a Jewish tribe in Medina, and they had an agreement with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. But what they did was that they committed treason, they committed treason. And then on the other hand, you have Muslims and the prophets of Allah who it was sending them by North Korea. They said that Saad bin wad is a close person to us and whatever decision he makes, we will agree to that Saudi more either or the yellow to unmade a decision. And when he made his decision. The Prophet sallallahu sallam said that what a great decision he has made and he has made a decision that is

00:11:57 --> 00:12:36

pleasing to Allah subhanho wa taala. Here's the point here. Saga moron was put into a situation. He never saw relationship at that time. What he did was he made a judgment call that is pleasing to Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. That's the key thing here. He never got into creating lies, fabricating lies, he never said sit there and took sides. But what is right he stood up for what is right and he stood up against what is wrong. And that is why the ultimate dimension that what is the point of the shaking of the Throne of Allah subhanho wa taala. See, you know, subhanAllah when the Prophet SAW Salem, and Oba and Omar were standing raviolo Tahoma, when they

00:12:36 --> 00:13:18

were standing on Mount or heard what happened, man or hood was shaking, out of what out of happiness and joy, that I have the Prophet standing on me, I have such people like obika, and Amara, the yellow Dawn who was standing on me, and this is why the Prophet said, Oh, heard, do not shake. Likewise, when the Throne of Allah subhanaw taala shook it shook out of joy and happiness, that now Saudi Mohammed has come to us, he is returning to Allah subhanho wa taala. So and he was able to achieve this kind of status, and this great achievement, because as many of them I mentioned, is because when he was put in that situation, on one hand, you have the Prophet sallallahu Sallam on

00:13:18 --> 00:13:58

the one hand, you have a relationship, but he made the right choice. So this is why it's very important that as Muslims we never engage in hola zoo sure how to Zoo false testimony, false statements, if things like this are spreading as a believer we stay away from that. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to keep our hearts clean, may Allah subhanho wa Taala give us ability to stay away from this and once again I chose this is because the Prophet sallahu wa sallam said that these are the worst of the the Kabbalah and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to keep us away from colasoft inshallah the zoo throughout my entire life and middle below enemy to Zakouma la hate a Saddam ya
