Mr. Luhan are 100 Local but I mean was so there was someone Rasulullah Muhammad voila early he was a big mine I'm about. So inshallah we are now continuing our series that we started few weeks before Ramadan it was called the fortunate and this goes back to the Hadith of the Prophet sal Allahu Allah he was sending them talking about those people who have good character and good o'clock as Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Quran we're in Nicola, Allah who look in alim, the prophet Allahu alayhi, wa salam had great character, and character can mean there's so many things about a human being about the nature of a human being, that draws other people to oneself. And this is what we're

00:00:38--> 00:01:20

talking about. Now, out of all the different characters, the noble characters that we can talk about. The very first one I want to take today and talk about is speaking the truth. And the reason why I want to talk about this is because speaking the truth, and being considered as a truthful person, was something that the Prophet Allah who it was some he embodied even before becoming a prophet, even before he was a prophet, he was considered as saw the old must do, he was considered a saw Amin meaning that it does not mean that you have to be a believer, in order to be a truthful person, a person should, should, and within their own innate human nature and part of fitrah is that

00:01:20--> 00:02:01

a person should always speak the truth and always say the truth. Now when we talk about the word sadaqa, yes, Dooku ours, the word said in the Quran, or in the context of the hadith of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it does not necessarily always mean that someone is speaking the truth. Because the Allah may have mentioned that speaking the truth has a lot to do with what is in our heart. It has a lot to do with what is what is the reality in our heart, if the heart is corrupt as a problem that somebody has mentioned, that the heart is the most important part of the body, if this is corrupt, everything else is corrupt, meaning that if the heart is corrupt, then whatever

00:02:01--> 00:02:42

will come from the tongue is also going to be considered as a lie in many cases. And if what's in the heart is the truth, then whatever comes from the tongue is also going to be the truth. Now when we talk about the word pseudo, and it means to say the truth, then when we talk about it from the linguistic perspective, there is a difference between the word hop, like we say the word hop, like Islam is hot. Islam is the truth, right? Islam is the truth. So what is the difference between Huck and Siddiq? Huck is in reference to anything that a person should not be denying or rejecting. When we talk about Allah, Allah is Al Huck, when we talk about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he

00:02:42--> 00:03:24

is an app when we talk about the PM, the day of judgment, and everything that will transpire in the hereafter that is considered as hot, anything related to our RT that is considered as hot. So those are things that we should not that is considered as hot. And that is something that we should not be denying, and anyone cannot deny. Of course, there are people who deny these things, but a person should not be denying them. On the other hand, setup is very exclusive, very exclusive with what we say when we say it has to be the absolute truth and nothing but the truth. When we talk about sizzle and the word oil, we're fair, like in all do we say we're far dirty, you know that we say that a

00:03:24--> 00:04:12

person who is considered as truthful to their word, a person makes a promise, okay, a person makes a promise. But then making sure that you follow through with that promise is called a Lua. This is why Allah uses the same word Subhanallah in the very beginning, as Sudha Alma EDA, when he says, Yeah, you know, I'll fall below could a phobia. Allah says in surah Al Israa, whoa, fool, beloved, that they fulfill their promises. So meaning that a person makes a promise, but then those who follow through now, what is a person who speaks something, they're saying the truth, but do they follow through with that promise in some cases, if they don't, then they're not fulfilling, they don't have

00:04:12--> 00:04:55

washed fat in their nature and they lack Wi Fi in their life. So, this is why it is very important that when we say something, and we make a promise or a commitment with someone, we have to follow through with that. And then lastly, what is the difference between the word acidic and the word acidic? The worst means to say the truth mean that in most cases the person will say the truth, but there are some cases where the person may not say the truth, whereas the worst deal means that a person will say the truth and He will follow through with the truth and he will, he will support the truth at all cost and means that in any situation, they will say that this is the absolute truth.

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

And in the case of obika or the Allah Tala on when they came and they said to

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

him that if a man said that he went in one night and they gave him a very hypothetical first, they try to trap him, that if a man says that he went from here all the way to Jerusalem, to Arkansas, and from there he went to Allah subhanho wa Taala Would you believe him? And he said, according to some books of history, that I will not believe him. But if it comes from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there is no doubt in the fact that this is the truth, meaning that whether we understand it, whether it's logical or not, we have to accept that this is the truth because it has come from Allah. And as come from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. A major part of our deen

00:05:42--> 00:06:29

is also based on our truth is based on the concept of truth. When you study or lwml Islamia when you study Islamic sciences, how did Islamic sciences come from the time of Rasulullah sallallahu ala he was sending him the time with a tab you're at the top of Tyrion, how did it come all the way to us? There is a Senate Okay, there is a a chain of narrators, just like when you see a hadith before the mutton of the Hadith. Before the actual Hadith, there is a chain of narrators. So that is called a Senate. The only way a hadith can be either declared as Dr. Eve or Maduro, or in many cases Hassan Hassan or Sahai, one of the very first things that the mahadi thing they see is whether this person

00:06:29--> 00:07:15

is considered as a truthful person or a liar. In fact, Imam Bukhari Rahmatullah Allah Subhanallah think about this, think about this, how powerful this is. Imam Muhammad Allah Ali, why is imamo Hadees book so who Buhari he has written so many books on Hadith by Sahil Bihari? Why is it so acceptable? Why is it considered so high? Because Imam Bukhari had a very strict guideline when it came to accepting narrators. And one time he did go somewhere, and he saw a person, the owner of a horse, he was trying to call the horse and he went, he took the bag of food to entice him, and he pulled out a bag of food. He says, You know what? To bring the horse close to him. As soon as the

00:07:15--> 00:07:19

horse came close, he took that bag of food and he put it on the side.

00:07:21--> 00:08:02

Once again, it's a deception. It's a lie. You come here, I will give you something. As soon as the animal comes close, he puts it away. You know what you mumble how he did? He did not even take the Hadith from him. He never took the Hadith from him. Because acidum saying the truth, a really shines or it really says says a lot about a person's personality. So when you said even or normal Islamia, when we talk about Daddy, when we talk about Hadid when we talk about fit. How does all this come from that time to come all the way to us? It is a chain of narrators and they all are speaking the truth. And they all are conveying exactly what were they what they were given their convenient to

00:08:02--> 00:08:44

the others. Now, when we talk about a Sith also, we have to understand that there are cases where a person will say the truth, a person will say the truth, but in their heart there is something else. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has declared these people as liars. Okay, so even a person is saying the truth, but there's something in their heart that Allah subhanho wa Taala he sees the heart at the end of the day. So what happened in the time was Lhasa Allahu Allah he was sending them that there was the leader of the monastic on our beloved obeyed in saloon. And he has said negative remarks about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he had said, things that were not appropriate even

00:08:44--> 00:09:22

about the other people in the Sahaba or the autonome. In general, he made some very negative remarks. Now, a Sahabi came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said Ya Rasulullah this man is saying negative things. And he's within our camp. And he's saying negative things are so so long, why some called a beloved obey. And what did our beloved obey you say? He says, jasola you are indeed the Prophet of Allah, you are the Prophet of Allah. And not only that, but I'd love and obey was standing next to the prophets of Salaam in many cases, and he will say, Have respect because he is the prophet of Allah. Now you don't have to keep on reiterating the fact that he's a prophet of

00:09:22--> 00:09:59

Allah, when the Sahaba are already aware that he's a prophet of Allah. But when he did this, and this incident, Allah subhanho wa Taala said, either John or Cal Munna if you own remember the time when the munaf you own they came to you, and they said all Nash hadoo in Nicola Rasulullah that we testify that you are the Prophet of Allah. And Allah says what Allah Who ya allah mu in Nicola rasool Allah also knows that you are the Prophet of Allah. Will Allah Who Yes, HUD will Allahu ye sha Allah testifies to what fact? in Nanaimo naphthalene Allah caribou

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

On the moon, half moon on liars. So the fact that even Abdullah bin obey what He said from his tongue was the truth, but because his heart was in the wrong place, this is why Allah declared him as a cafe, a liar. Now on the flip side, you have some Sahaba their stories of the Sahaba of Yoda on whom they had a very clean heart. Like in the case of Hobby Lobby, Allah Tala and when he was forced to say negative things about Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his life was threatened. And when he did that, he came to Rasulullah Salallahu Salam sejahtera so Allah, I said those things, but will lie you My heart is clean. And Allah subhanho wa Taala he sent even a worry

00:10:42--> 00:11:30

regarding this, the man Katha Billa human body Imani Illa man aakhri Hawa called boo moto my in normal Eman that there are some people who have been forced, there are some people who did confer with Allah subhanho wa Taala even after having Iman. Except that mean that these people who did that they are in the Safeco for, except for in an Oklahoma call boo. Except for the person who was forced will call Boom automa in normal Eema but his heart is steadfast with iman and faith. Allah subhanho wa Taala exonerated that kind of person. In this case of the surah when the sutras that is found in the 28th just the 28th para Surah album tahina, salaam tahina was revealed because of a story and an

00:11:30--> 00:12:12

incident where you had a Sahabi by the name of how to even be built out of the allotted iron, how to be rebuilt ah, had family in Makkah, okay. He had family in Makkah. And if you go back to the history, and to the CEDAW, one of the reasons or the key reason I will say the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he went into Makkah, and he conquered Makkah, was not that he just felt like I want to go and conquer MCDA. But because there was an agreement between him and the Quraysh and the Quraysh, they violated the terms of the agreement. And at that time was Allah Azza wa sallam, he felt that we need to go into Makkah, and we need to conquer Makkah. Now how to maybe not be built

00:12:12--> 00:12:56

out of the hola Tron? He knows that the Muslims are coming over there. He has family in Mecca. He's not from the Polish. He's not from the Hashimi tribe. He's not from the Omega tribe. He's not from any kind of tribe. That is considered as a significant tribe in Makkah. He has family in Makkah. So what do you do? He wrote a letter, he wrote a letter to the people of the Quraysh, that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is heading your way. Now he's a hobby, and not just as a hobby. But even amongst the Sahaba there are different ranks. He was a buddy Sahabi you know what that means. It is a very special and exalted status among the Sahaba if you're considered as a buddy sahabi, and he

00:12:56--> 00:13:37

was concerned about the Sahaba, yet he did what he's doing. And he sends a letter to the college at the hands of a woman, and Jabra elite. Islam comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and says the rasool Allah, there is a situation that you're not aware of. There is a woman who's taking a letter from one of your companions to the parish. And the only reason why he did this is because he wanted immunity. He wanted protection for his family. He's telling the police, I will give you the plans of the province of Salem on the condition that you will protect my family. And so he did this, and he sent that woman and Jumeirah some comes and informs. And then the problem, Sam, he said

00:13:37--> 00:14:14

to the Sahaba that go in go and first of all, go and get that woman and make sure you take the letter from that woman and the sahaba. Were even shocked. The woman was shocked herself because when she was first approached, she was asked, Do you have a letter? And there are some books of history that mentioned that she initially lied. She initially lied, that I don't have a letter and the Sahaba they said, No, if the province that Allahu alayhi wa sallam said that you have a letter, then you have a letter. And again, then after that, she gave the letter, she gave the letter, they saw the letter, they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that time the prophets of

00:14:14--> 00:14:52

Allah, who are they he was sending him, he called out them. And he brought the letter and he was shocked. He was absolutely shocked. The How can the letter that I give you this woman now is in the hands of the prophets of Allah who it was sending them? And he says, yeah, how the Mahabharata What is this hotter and hotter? You say, explain to us Yara so Allah, Allah, he I don't intend anything wrong. But the only thing I did this is because I have family there. And I care for my family. I love my family, and I fear that they will do something to my family. And you know what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, This is why I'm mentioning all this. He says, In who saw the poem,

00:14:53--> 00:15:00

the word said again, he used the problem. He said, This man has spoken the truth. And not only that, but then the Prophet saw something I'll

00:15:00--> 00:15:33

Of course, you know, in this case, on whatever you're done, you know the default everything. There's one, there's one solution to everything right with Armando, Hatha Yoga, so like, just give me the permission, take care of this person. I'll take care of him right now. He's a traitor. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, in whose sadaqa comb, he has spoken the truth. Let him go. He's a bodily companion. I know. There is sincerity in his heart. So this is why it's very important to understand these things, that even in the case of Rasulullah sallallahu, some things did happen like this, but because their heart was cleaned, this is why the prophets of salaam he let them go.

00:15:33--> 00:16:12

Now few last things in sha Allah, because of time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in a hadith dama, your ebook, your ebook for inner pseudopod, Tama and ina tune, well, Kariba Reba, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, Leave that which causes doubt and leave that for that which has no doubt meaning that if there is something that you come across, and you have any kind of doubt in it, the leave that in go towards that which has absolutely no doubt in it. Excuse me, and then the Prophet sallallahu I assume he says, For in a similar pattern that Nina because very the Truth brings peace to your heart, while Kevin Mareeba and lying and falsifying information

00:16:12--> 00:16:53

only puts more doubt and what the order might have mentioned based on this is that when a person speaks the truth, even when a person speaks the truth, like in the case, in the case of cabin medic, rhodiola Denine as Allah says in the Quran, yeah, are you Hallelujah, Amen. Oh you people who believe it took Allah be cautious of Allah while cool, no ma saw the pain and be with those who are truthful. And in the case of Garbin Madico the Allah Tala and he spoke the truth, the Muna Africa and they lie to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he came back from the book, and they in the moon African, we're scolding carbon Malaka the Ultra, that why did you? Why did you just not go

00:16:53--> 00:17:31

to the province of Salem and lie and make up an excuse and you would have got away with it the way we got away with it? And he said, No, I will not do that. And what's important to know is Allah is saying that God does speak the truth but be amongst those who do speak the truth. Because even today, we might suffer a little you might have to go through some pain, because you're speaking the truth. But initially down the road, a person will always be saved. As a prophet saw something he says a cynical Yoongi will carry but usually that that same seeking, speaking the truth will always save a person and a person who lies will always this person will be destroyed or the lie will

00:17:31--> 00:17:56

destroy him. In this hadith, the Prophet Solomon saying that because a person lies doubt will we place in his heart. So this is very important that we understand this. And even in the case of goblin medical Athan a person, I mean, these people they came in, they said this to him the problem he called God and he said, that you have spoken the truth to me. But now let the decision come from Allah subhanho wa Taala in for 40 days or 50 days,

00:17:57--> 00:17:58

I believe 50 days

00:17:59--> 00:18:41

for 50 days, no one, no one amongst the Sahaba and the Prophet SAW Salem, they spoke to Gaben Malik Can you imagine living in Medina and properly some does not want to talk to you imagine living in Medina and the Sahaba not want to talk to you. In fact, he even went in fact he even went and he even asked his own cousin, because he asked his own cousin the do you But do you believe that I would betray Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you think I don't love Allah and Prophet Allah and his cousin was ordered to stay quiet. So he stayed quiet. And he was upset the How can anyone doubt my Iman but after 50 days, Allah subhanho wa Taala forgave him. Allah forgave two more

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

other people who stayed away from the book, but down the road. Yes, there was a time of difficulty but Allah forgave them and Allah talks about their story in the Quran. On the other hand, you had the moon Africa and they lied today they lie they got away with it. But then that's then Allah subhana wa Tada refers to them as the munaf own and Allah Subhan did not forgive these people. Finally, I want to share with you a quote of obika acidic for the Allah Tala and he says, Yeah, you are nuts. This is when he became the amendment mean. He says yeah, you and us in the other will lead to Aleikum that I've been made as a ruler over all of you want us to be highly combat I'm not the

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

best amongst all of you for an accent too far no need that if I do good then help me if I do wrong we're in a set to for football we Mooney that if I do wrong then make sure you show me what is right and so once again a leader is saying this says a lot about his about how much the truth means so much to him. And then he says a sudoku Amana tone, while Kariba piano that he says that speaking the truth is an Amana it is the right of it. It is the responsibility. It is something that a person must do in this situation. And then not only that, but he says well Kathy Betula

00:20:00--> 00:20:34

I is to be deceitful that if I lie, am I deceitful than I am, this is not what a leader is supposed to be doing. So this is why it's very important that we understand these things. Now there's so much more I can mention. So next week I want to talk about the importance of staying away from lying and how do you stay away from lying? And not only that, but why do people lie? Inshallah we do want to talk about that. And also, I do want to talk about that when it comes to our children. How can we inculcate this concept of speaking the truth within them? Because a lot of times our children do not speak the truth. For different reasons. We'll talk about that next week. I asked Allah subhanho wa

00:20:34--> 00:20:46

taala. To give all of us ability to act wants to be seen and heard, does OChem Allah Subhana Allah when we have the connection to Allah into that stuff, we're going to relate exactly. Somebody's going to label or cancel
