Yesterday I gave a about the importance of justice in Islam. And how as Muslims, we have always said on what is on the side of right, and stay away from the side of wrongs. And there were a few aspects of that that I had left out and some people were asking me questions so I felt like you know what, after South of budget, I'll address some of these kinds of questions that people may have had. So, there is some confusion that exactly when do you speak up so I understand that as a Muslim, I have to always err on the side of right. Allah subhanaw taala tells me in the Quran tells all of us in the Quran, yeah, you will Adina Amanu Kurokawa Amina Bella Vista shahada and Allah whenever ALLAH

00:00:39--> 00:01:18

and forsake him I will validate any will occur Robin in your corner honey and overpaid on for Allahu Allah be Hema for LA tibial Hawa and Tadeu we're in Telugu Oh totally do for in Allah County, my terminal Kabira first of all, Allah subhanho wa Taala he mentioned that there are several categories of people that will prevent you from doing justice, they will prevent you from speaking out the truth. And the very first thing Allah subhanaw that I mentioned is our own personal ego. How many times you and I we will not speak up the truth why because it will personally hurt me. But if that means that I need to step on my ego, because I need to stand up for what is right Allah subhanaw

00:01:18--> 00:01:57

taala saying that you have to stand for what is right. Because that shows you that then who's more superior in front of in our heart. Is that our ego or is it Allah subhanho wa Taala and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the eagle always comes after Allah is Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this so first of all, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that we have to always stand up for justice. But at the same time, there are few exceptions when you don't say anything when there is injustice taking place. And the only time when you don't do anything or you don't say anything, when injustice is happening is when there is potential or there is a situation or there's a possibility

00:01:58--> 00:02:34

that the volume will increase in their volume. Then in that particular situation, a person can stay quiet. And this is something that we find the Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu ala he was setting them when they follow the Allahu Allah and he was a person who narrated a love that hadith regarding the signs of the Day of Judgment. And there was a hadith where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned that there will come a time that there will be so much fitna that the best thing that you can do is to seclude yourself at home. What that hadith is basically telling us is you stay away from that, because there'll be so much a volume taking place that even perhaps you might say

00:02:34--> 00:03:15

something, and the volume will increase in their volume and the mud bloom, they will have to they will their volume will increase. In that particular situation. A person is advised to stay quiet. However, I do want to say this, the majority of the times, the major majority of the times, that is not the case. Those are very few cases that where you will stay quiet. But if you have to stay quiet majority times is you can speak up for the truth. Few times the situation is where you stay quiet, but even in the situation that you have to stay quiet. And that situation we applied the other Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he says Monroe men C'mon Koran for a year

00:03:15--> 00:03:52

who be sad, when you see something that is wrong, you stop it with the use of your hands, meaning that you have to be physically active in stopping what is wrong. And then he says in them, yes. So therefore be designing. If you cannot do it physically, you do it verbally, you express yourself verbally. And there's many ways you can express yourself verbally. And then he says in them, yes, so there will be. And if you cannot even do that, then at least you think advising your heart meaning that you your heart cannot be desensitized that you know what, it's wrong. And let this just keep on going because this is a world of injustice, and justice will only be applied to here after no you

00:03:52--> 00:04:40

have to at least think it through and know in your heart that this is something that is wrong. Why because if in our heart we understand that this is wrong, then our heart is on the right path. The minute you and I we feel that there is absolutely nothing wrong with this. This is where our hearts hearts will deviate. And then secondly is What is the punishment of those people who stay silent in the face of injustice obika Are the Allahu and there's a hadith mentioned that one time was was Amin obika, the Allah Juana he mentions that we heard this verse from sewer Thelma either I remember 105 Yeah, uh, Johanna Deena I'm a new alaykum and fusiform Leia Gurukul Manuela datum, Allah subhanaw

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

taala saying yeah, you already in Amman, oh you people who believe Aleykum and for sukham you have to worry about yourself. Take care of yourself. Let your guru calm. No one layer Luca mandala either to datum those who have who are misguided they cannot harm you as long as you are guided me that

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

If you and your heart is on the right path, those who are deviant if they try to attack you, they try to harm you. They cannot harm you. After this obika The Allah Allah He mentioned that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, and by the way, there are not many a hadith narrated by Al Baqarah the Allah one there are many Hadith Narrated by Abu Bakr Radi Allahu on a very, very small handful of Hadith Narrated by Abu Bakr, the Allah Juan, but this is one of them. He says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says that anyone who sees injustice, and they stay silent, in the face of that injustice, Allah will punish those people in this dunya you and I, we how many

00:05:41--> 00:06:20

times we stay quiet. Why? Because it's my family. Because it's my parents because it's my children because it's my brother or, or my sister and we stay silent. Why? Because we give family priority over Allah and Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. If that is the case, then the prophesy someone is telling us that the punishment will come from Allah subhanho wa taala. Secondly, there was a there was some Shabaab there was some youth, they were sitting with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet SAW Salem. This is a group of people who had just returned from Amazonia. So if you study Islamic history, and especially the era of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the

00:06:20--> 00:07:02

Muslims migrated during the Moroccan era to Abyssinia and many of them stayed over there. There was a rumor that spread, some of them came back, they were they continued to reside in Makkah, majority of them went back to IBC. Yeah, even more when I went to Abyssinia and they stayed in Habesha and Abyssinia for an extended period of time later on in the time of Medina later and towards the latter end of the time in Medina, that is when they came back to Medina because they realize now and they understood that now Medina is a safe haven for Muslims. They left Makkah because of the persecution. Now you're coming back to McCobb. The Prophet saw some he's sitting down with some of the people who

00:07:02--> 00:07:40

came back from Abyssinia. And he says, that told me something about I was sitting here telling you something that you saw in ABC young. And they began to tell us about the salon that one day, we were sitting on the side of the street, and we saw a woman walking by. And she had you know, like overseas, we see that a lot of times women go and they fetch water. And a lot of times what do they do, they put it on their heads, right? They put it on their heads or they put it on their shoulders. So here, they say that a woman was walking with water either on her shoulders or her head. And as she walking, there was few other youth sitting on the side. And they decided to make a mockery out

00:07:40--> 00:07:56

of her. So what they did was one of them, they stepped in, and they they distracted or either they pushed her or they put something on her shoulder that it caused her to fall down. And not only did she fall down, but the you know the what he called

00:07:58--> 00:07:59

it's called a mud car in

00:08:01--> 00:08:39

a pot. So it basically fell and it broke the basically the the the water was wasted. And these youth were sitting on the side and they were laughing at her. Okay, they were laughing at her. And she turned to them and she says that you remember that Allah is going to hold you accountable. Remember that your actions are going to become apparent before Allah the Day of Judgment. And she and then she was of course upset and she left. Now these of course you understand the Muslims were not the citizens of that country. Okay, they were seeking refuge in our country, they were considered as refugees in one way in that country. Of course, they will hide they were highly respected by the

00:08:39--> 00:09:21

Najafi and they were given a place not today like the way the refugees are treated today. But they were given honor and dignity and respect. But they said this the problems of Saddam and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam He said not once but three times she spoke the truth. She spoke the truth. She spoke the truth, meaning that when she said that Allah was calamity and Allah's wrath will come upon these people. She was absolutely right. So that is why brothers and sisters, we have to always be careful that when there is injustice taking place, if there's a situation once again that the volume can increase, we stay quiet, but in our heart, we have to have the right frame of

00:09:21--> 00:09:59

mind in our heart, our heart has to be in the right place. And at the same time understanding the what is the pitfall what are the punishments when do we stay quiet? And finally I share with you briefly the story of baboon allele. But you know the this is exactly what happened. This man Abdullah bin obey who was considered clearly as a munaf and this is the trait of a Munna. FIP by the way to go and stand against Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because of allies. This is exactly what he did when Rasulullah sallallahu it was send them and once again you know that I mentioned Allah stories from Sierra when the Prophet was something he sent a group of Quran

00:10:00--> 00:10:43

to go and teach a group of people, and they had other plans, they massacred and they killed all these Muslims. One of them was able to escape and come back. As he was coming back to Medina. He saw that two people were coming back from Medina going back home. He asked them, Where are you from? He they mentioned that this is where this is where we are from, and they were from the same Babila, the same tribe that had massacred all the Muslims, this Sahabi out of his anger and his frustration, and out of revenge, he killed those two people. He killed those two people that were coming back from this was a sudden, these two people had no idea what their Kabila did. He they had no clue. And so

00:10:43--> 00:11:19

when the Prophet saw something he found out now of course, what do you have to do? You have to give blood money for this. So what did he do? It was that there was an agreement, there was a contract between the Jews of Medina and the Muslims of Medina, than any situation where there is if there's murder, that's a different case. In this case, there was a different home about this. And so they said that we'll give blood money for it. Okay, we'll give blood money for it. The blood money is going to be shared by everyone. The muscles are going to give some blood money and the the Jews have to give some blood money. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he went to burn a lead to ask

00:11:19--> 00:11:57

them for the blood money for their share. When the Prophet saw him. He went there he went with Albuquerque. Hola, Juan, and Omar Omona photography. Hola, Juan. And they said to Roswell, Santander, why don't you sit here in this particular place, and we will do our own shooter and we will consult with each other and we'll come back to you. What they were doing is behind the scenes, they were making a plan to apply in a plan to perhaps assassinate Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam when this happened Gibreel Valley Islam came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and informed him about their plans. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not say a single word to

00:11:57--> 00:12:34

obika the hola Juan he not say a single word to Alma Hurtado the Allah on he got up and he left now I'm gonna I'm gonna katabi Nova para de Allah Juan are thinking where is Rasulullah saw Salam. After a while when the person did not come back. They also got up and they left and they went back to Medina. When they got back to Medina, the province of some informed them that the reason why I got up is because Djibouti IATA used Salam he told me that stand up and leave right now they're making a plan against you. So then later on of course, because this is treason, this is this is a breach of contract in this in this kind of situation. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sent a

00:12:34--> 00:13:13

message to button up then you have 10 days to leave. You have 10 days to leave and you are no longer allowed here in Medina and so forth. And at that time, who stood up for these people who stood out for the volley moon it was Abdullah bin obey once again the this is the trait of a manava Abdullah bin obey said to them gonna fit on. I have your back. Don't worry about it. I will stand by your side. I will fight by your side and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. He highlights this and SOTL Harsha LM Tara either Levine enough Abu yaku Luna Lee when he will lead ina Cafaro Manasa kita

00:13:15--> 00:13:59

Did you not see those people who didn't the * those who are hypocrites in their heart, they said to their brethren, who were of the Al Kitab let in on eg tomb. Lana who Jana Malcolm if you are dismissed from the city, if you are exiled from the city, Lana who Jana Malcolm and so we will also follow with you. We're not going to say Medina and this is exactly what Abdullah said. He said that I will follow you I will not say Medina because you are you are you know we are allies, we will enter into your feet and Avada we're in Pootle tomb Lenin Surah netcomm, Allah subhanaw says that this person he said, I'm Robin obey he said that if they are if you are killed, I will support you.

00:13:59--> 00:14:36

Allah says will Allahu Yeshe had you in the home like the moon, Allah testifies that these people are liars. But the point is that this is Abdullah what Abdullah and obey did he stood up against Allah and His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he supported the volley moon. This is something that's highlighted in the Quran, because this is the trait of a munaf. So that is why whenever we do something that is wrong, we always stand up for what Allah says, For what His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, we do it the right way. We do it the correct way. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to always keep our hearts on the right side. May Allah subhanho wa Taala keep us away

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

from any type of deviation from his from from himself and from his prophets of Allah wa he was sending me a little bit.
