Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh the Sudano human Hamdulillah we are enemy and also there was someone that was Salim Hamid wala early he was a big marine was sent in with the same money Kathy emigrated on my boss Ohana clima in la marina. I'm Tina in the Antonio Hakima with Charlene so today we're certainly only one of them and it's only for Cody and my God. So inshallah we continue where we left off from last week we are going through the people who are Muslims on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhanho wa Taala will not either speak to these people or Allah subhanaw taala will not look at these people or Allah subhanaw taala will not give them any attention on the Day of

00:01:55--> 00:02:40

Judgment, this is not the kofod These are the Muslims who commit these certain actions. Last week we went through some of them for example, one who betrays the betrayer and so and and others. So today inshallah we are starting off with the action or the crime that is committed by some people which is called a Elul Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Quran says, Well, my young TV, my Avila Yamanaka, Yama, and whoever deceives his companions as regardless to the spoils of war, he shall bring them forth on the Day of Judgment. So the word of Allah will actually mean stealing. And stealing means that in the in the time of us Allah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam. In fact, first of all, let me say

00:02:40--> 00:03:20

this, when the word of elude is used in the Arabic language is used in the context of spoils of war, because things are left behind by the enemies, and for the ummah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Those things have been made halal. There are a few things that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala has made halal for the ummah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that were not allowed for the previous Omaze. First of all, as an example, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, during that in all the masjid and what the Hurun ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala he has given this ummah, something that he has not given to the previous owners, which is the Allah has made the earth as a means of

00:03:20--> 00:04:02

purification. As you all know that there is a substitute for Wilson and for wudu if a person does not have access to water, or they are they have some sickness and using water could be detrimental to their health, that in that case they can use to your mom they can use the dirt or the earth to make to attain purification. Not only that Allah, in the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim he also says that we are allowed to pray on the surface of the earth. Long time ago, there were certain places where people had to go and pray. And not only that, but they had to even put out a rug or something of that type to pray, but for the OMA of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the

00:04:02--> 00:04:46

entire Earth is a means of purification and a means or a place to pray. Not only that, but there is a story and mentioned in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu it was telling them about a person by the name of you shall be known, you shall ever known one time he took an expedition with him, and it was the practice of the previous Gambia and their previous traumas that when they will go to battle, what they will do after is that they will collect the spoils of war and a fire a fire would come from Allah subhanho wa Taala and it would burn it would burn all the spoils of war. If it burnt it completely. Then this means that this was accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala it is mockable in the

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

law, and if the fire did not burn it, then that means that something was missing from that, in the story of you shine noon, the fire came from Allah subhanho wa Taala it began to burn the

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

On the spoils of war, but it did not burn it completely. And that is when you shall be known, he began asking all the tribal leaders, and they found out that there were some people who had stolen from that spoils of war. And that's why they were able to really regain those things, though those, that wealth, put it with the other collective wealth, the fire came from Allah subhanho wa taala. And it burnt it completely. This is how the spoils of war were accepted in the eyes of Allah and the previous owners in the ummah of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, it is more easier to steal in this sense, because had the fire come, then you can get away with it. But since there is no fire,

00:05:41--> 00:06:23

and here the wealth is distributed, anyone can come and steal anything as they wish. This is why this these people who will steal from the spoils of war, the Prophet sallallahu, it was something he says, in fact, Allah subhanho wa Taala also says that on the Day of Judgment, today, you got away with it. But on the day of judgment, there'll be so much humiliation, because whatever you stole, you will come with that in your hands. Can you imagine if someone steal something, and then comes with that in their hand, where everyone can see that this person is a thief, this person is a fraud. And this is exactly what will happen to these people on the Day of Judgment. In fact, the owner

00:06:23--> 00:06:47

might have also said that when we talk about the loan, it is not only stealing from the spoils of war, that these people are going to be held accountable on the day of judgment by people who steal from rulers, people who steal from employers, people who steal from employees. This is something that we see a lot happening in this day and age, people who steal from their workers, people who steal from the government.

00:06:49--> 00:07:23

Brothers and sisters, IRS, how many times people they lie on the IRS, this is stealing from the government. And don't say and people say you know, when I whenever I talked about this in the past, people say oh, it's a kuffaar government. No one told you to live here. If you live here, then that means that they expect you to be telling the truth. So even if you steal from this government, and no matter what the political, what the political decisions are made in this country, when you steal from the government, you are stealing, that's all it is. Not only that, but for students

00:07:24--> 00:08:07

cheating on your tests. Yes. happens a lot in our universities today. Happens a lot. People, they cheat all the time. People who cheat today, they get away tomorrow, they'll go away, but one day that cheating will come and bite them. They will come and bite them and they will suffer the consequences that time. That's why today don't cheat. Don't cheat any system that we have, and it will always save you. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he also mentioned that these people who still on the day on this in this day, and on the Day of Judgment, they will come to the Soula sallahu alayhi wa sallam for help Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will wash his hands away

00:08:07--> 00:08:49

from these people. And he would tell these people that I'm sorry, I cannot help you. So this is why it's very important that we don't cheat, we don't steal in any kind of situation. The next one is someone who seizes another land by force. There's a hadith narrated by a globe in Amara Viola Denine, where the prophet said Allah who it was sent them says, Whoever ceases any portion of land unlawfully will be swallowed up by it mean that the land that you may have taken from someone else, that land you will be swallowed up by that land, on the Day of Judgment. So this is why it's very important. Once again, these are all about all these things. If you notice, it's either about

00:08:49--> 00:09:30

cheating, fraud, stealing or taking things that don't belong to you. All these people was the day of judgment. The next one is the person who is a two faced person. Now when we say two phrases, the first word that comes to our mind is munafo, or the first word that comes to our mind is hypocrite. But here what this means is that there are certain people that when they go to one crowd, they say things as if they belong to that crowd. And as soon as they change a crowd and they go to another crowd, or another gathering, they began to talk about the other people, and they began to say things that would appeal to the other people. These are people about whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:09:30--> 00:10:00

sallam says that on the Day of Judgment, these people will have their tongues, their tongues will be, there'll be given a tongue of fire, there'll be given a tongue of fire, because they will misuse their tongue. And this is why even though yes, this is not mentioned about the person who doesn't he but it's not mentioned about Anyone who misses who misuses their tongue. This is regarding those people who misuse and they exchange words and they, you know, they put the words of this

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

crowd into this crowd and so forth. This is why it is extremely important that we always have, you know, subhanAllah this is something that we have, or we have a lot of these kinds of people today that, you know, forget about the post, some has talked about to face but today we have so many different faces. In fact, some of us, you know, some people, they have 10 faces, seven faces, five faces, everywhere they go, they change their personality, when they're in this not only regarding when you go from one gathering to the next gathering, even your personality, how it changes Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the man he was at home that was a man he was outside them

00:10:36--> 00:11:14

outside the house. Today, we are different when we're outside the house. We're different when we are when we are at the masjid. We're different. When we are at work. We're different. When we're working with community members, we're different. We have so many faces. And this is why when you talk about in the fall, when you're talking about hypocrisy, this is one thing that every single Sahabi they would be scared of. And they will ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect them. So that's why it's very important that when it comes to the matters of any crowd, then we always stick to the truth. If I if I am part of a crowd, and I began to falsify information, I say things which will be appealing

00:11:14--> 00:12:01

to these people than on the day of judgment and if I'm changing my Deen, then on the day of judgment, I you we all will be held accountable by Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment, the next one, a ruler or a leader who is aloof, aloof means that they are completely unaware and from the situation of their people. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Whoever is put in charge of of any of the affairs of the Muslims and remains aloof from them and pays no attention to their needs and poverty, Allah will remain aloof from him on the day of judgment. So, if a person has been given, if a person has been given the leadership or a person has been given a position,

00:12:01--> 00:12:43

then it is important that that position is not sought out, or acquired only for main purposes, for fame purposes for power purposes. And if a person becomes a leader, and then they are not worried about the needs of the people, and they only worried about a certain the needs of only certain people in the community, and there's other needs that are being neglected, genuine knees are being neglected, then this is someone who will be neglected by Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of judgment, and this is something that we see from the Sahaba Viola that I'm home. This is why you have people like Omar even a Hapa. Viola that on that instead of just giving her orders and nights

00:12:43--> 00:13:30

he would patrol he would go out in the city city of Medina, he will go and talk to the people which rule are actually goes out today and converses with people interacts with people. Today. There's no leaders like that today. So this is why we learn from the from the, from the Sahaba of the ultra on home. In fact, one thing about Ahmed mo photogra, the alotta and that he had was an open door policy, people would come and they would know everyone knew no matter how strict on him Hatha was, but everyone knew that if I had a problem, I could go to Omaha pobre, the Allah Tala and and almond ricotta will give me justice. And so this is how we need to behave, if we are given the position of

00:13:30--> 00:14:08

leadership that in that case, if I care about the needs of some and neglect the needs of some, because I feel like that they're not important that on the Day of Judgment, we will be dealt the same way on the day of judgment. And think about this, the day, the day when you need the Rama of Allah subhanaw taala the day when we need the attention of Allah subhanho wa Taala the attention of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, these people will neither get the attention of Allah, they will not get the attention of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, just imagine, just imagine what will happen to that person on the Day of Judgment, where you have nowhere to go, you have no

00:14:08--> 00:14:15

idea who to talk to, you have no idea who can save you. This is what happens to these kind of people on the Day of Judgment. Then

00:14:16--> 00:14:22

the next one, very important, the one who begs

00:14:23--> 00:14:26

when he has the means of being independent,

00:14:27--> 00:14:49

showing that you are in need of someone when Allah subhanaw taala has made you independent. Or let me let me say this another way. When you apply for financial aid, when you don't need financial aid, when you apply, you know, I remember, you know, there's so many systems that we have in America.

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

And if you want like for example, in this day and age, let's take one thing, something that's very relevant. We all know about this Medicaid. Yes, we know we all know about Medicaid right?

00:15:01--> 00:15:45

People who need money, people who are in the state of poverty, people who don't have anything, they usually qualify for Medicaid. But how many people they will falsify information. They put wrong information on the forms, just so that they can get Medicaid, just so that they can cheat the system, they don't want to spend money out of their own pocket for Medical Necessities. So they will take the money from the people think about this, if a person lies, if a person lies, they put the wrong information. Now they put false information. And because of that a person gets accepted for a certain insurance. Or they get they get accepted for something, and the person who's actually

00:15:45--> 00:16:23

deserving of it is neglected, you have taken away from that person's right, you have taken something away from that person. And in that case, we become the volume, because you took something that does not belong to you. That's no different than taking something, you come to the masjid, you see something that doesn't belong to you, you pick it up, and you leave with it, it's so different. So that's why it is extremely important that when it comes to these kinds of things, when we try to worry about ourselves, be truthful about it, be honest about it, if it is written for you, it is written for you if it is not written for you, but the law, my Shadowfall you move on, and Allah

00:16:23--> 00:17:04

Subhana Allah will provide Inshallah, but this is the one of the biggest problems that we have today in our Muslim communities. I hear this over and over again, we are cheating in our system, students are cheating on their test in their exams. Why? Because the exam, the reasons I get is, oh, this information is not going to be used later on in my life. You know, this algebra, or this college algebra that I'm doing right now. I'm not gonna sit there using my life. So who cares if I, if I cheat the system right now, when we lie on our forums, when we lie on IRS when we lie for financial aid when we lie, when we lie for any other reasons for insurance purposes, and so forth, all this

00:17:04--> 00:17:27

brothers and sisters is going to come to us on the Day of Judgment. It doesn't matter where we live, it doesn't matter what system it is, when we cheat. It is we are going to be held accountable by Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment. In fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says the one who asks the one who begs while they're independent, Allah on the providing some says that Allah

00:17:30--> 00:18:08

he'll be resurrected, this person will be resurrected with scratches on their face with scratches on their face. This is a Hadith narrated by mentioning in Abu Dhabi with NSA intermediary by datamine are the yellow Tainan. Next one. Now, this is something that is not well isn't relevant to us so much so but at the same time, this talks about respect. And there's one thing I do want to mention here about this, first of all, the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is about people who spit towards the Qibla. Now, this is something that long time ago, people were spit, you know, and they might spit towards the Qibla. And there's a hadith narrated by this hadith, the Prophet sallallahu

00:18:08--> 00:18:45

alayhi wa sallam that anyone who spits towards the fibula, then on the day of judgment, there'll be resurrected with spit on their face. Now, a lot of times, you know, we don't find ourselves doing something like this. In fact, we have so much reverence for the fibula for the Kaaba and so forth. But then here, there's one thing here, I do want to mention, which is the spreading of the feet. I know that, you know, here in this budget, we always have this one brother, who is so particular, whenever they see anyone facing their feet towards the Qibla, he will come running across halfway through the masjid, and he will tell this person not to do that. But let's talk about this from an

00:18:45--> 00:19:28

academic point of view. In when you're sitting in the presence of the Kaaba, in the presence of the Kaaba, you're not allowed to spread your feet towards the Kaaba, okay. But here, here, miles miles away, 1000s of miles away, we're not actually in front of the Kaaba, then if a person is sitting and their feet is in the direction of the Tabler, there is no nothing wrong with that. And the reason why we have this mindset, and by the way, I'm not saying I'm not advocating that tomorrow, we all come and we all face our feet towards the Qibla. I'm not advocating for that. But I'm just saying that when we say that this is haram, it's not haram, okay? There is nothing against it. If a person

00:19:28--> 00:19:51

is sitting in that way, there's nothing wrong against it here what people have the reason this mindset has spread in the Muslim ummah, is because when we are in the, in the presence of the Kaaba, we don't do it and we all know that, but when you are millions and 1000s of miles away, then in that case people feel like that the same rule apply the same rule does not apply. I just wanted to make that very, very clear the last person

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

these are the people who will be punished on the Day of Judgment is the person who lies about

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

Dreams now first of all, is that in this day and age, there are very, very few people who can interpret dreams, number one, number two, when it comes to our dreams, there is no really even if we see a dream, it cannot be a means of inspiration for us. Okay? If I see a dream that I have a certain job is not a message from Allah subhanaw taala that quit your job and go get that job. That's not what that is. Our dreams don't mean anything. In that sense. The dreams are Umbreon Asian was that there was salam were a direct message from Allah subhanho wa taala. When it came to for Davia, Rasulullah Salah some saw a dream that he was doing the walk around the Kaaba, that is why

00:20:40--> 00:21:18

they went to and they traveled from Medina to Makkah, with the intention of Umbra and with the story is a long story without getting into it right now. But anyone so long time ago, what used to happen is that people would see a dream. And there were certain scholars and each in each locality that they will could interpret dreams. And they could say, and what they would do is, they will say that this is probably what the dream means. But it is not definite. Why? Because even in this day and age, you have a lot of books that are talking about the interpretation of dreams, you find them in all different languages. And the thing is that none of them are proven from any hadith of Rasulullah

00:21:18--> 00:21:53

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you see a dream you saw a dream and fine, let's move on. You know, if you saw a dream that you were in Six Flags, fine, you want to go to Six Flags go to Six Flags, if you don't want to go Six Flags don't go six flags. If so the thing is that our dreams don't really mean anything. But at the same time, the one thing that we will we learn from this hadith is that you cannot lie about your dreams, you cannot a person cannot say that I saw such and such a dream. I a person says I saw those Lhasa Allah while he was salam and did not see Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So these are things that we have to once again, what is this person doing? He's

00:21:53--> 00:22:28

lying. He is a cheat, you're cheating someone else you're you're giving, you're giving the impression to someone else, that you did something whereas you did not. And so this is something else that we learned from the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will go gonna stop right here in sha Allah because now from here, the we're talking about the pious people on the Day of Judgment, what will be their affair on the Day of Judgment? How will they, what will they go through on the Day of Judgment in which people are the pious people on the Day of Judgment? Where are their actions that they're going to be considered amongst the pious amongst the solid green on

00:22:28--> 00:22:48

the Day of Judgment? Inshallah we'll cover that next week, ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to give us the ability, to be honest, we ask Allah subhanho wa taala. To be truthful, we ask Allah subhana wa to keep us steadfast upon the Quran and the Sunnah of us who also Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and once again, please, you know, when it comes to our own children,

00:22:49--> 00:23:24

when it comes to our family members, talk about these things, because a lot of times we hear, we hear people talking about cheating and doing this and doing that and, you know, you know, working around the system, whereas we're cheating the system. So we need to always keep this in mind that we if there's anyone in our family who's probably doing this, we have to make sure that we stop them from doing something of this type. If we are doing it, that we have to be the very first ones who are stopping from this May Allah Subhan give us ability does that from Allah Hyatt Subhanak along with 100 connection to Allah Allah Allah Anta Nesta Furukawa awake exactly Allah. So I'm already

00:23:25--> 00:23:25
