Frobisher, he saw the way a silly MD Dr. Missoni of Gokhale Allahumma Tabitha and the multi biller Ilaha illa Allah Allah homage. lamina Latina Ave noir middle Sally hurt, but I was always happy what was on the subject, I mean,

00:02:29--> 00:03:12

today's hobo is actually about a really peculiar, very interesting story in the Quran. It's only mentioned this one time. This is in sort of sod, the 38th Surah of the Quran and it involves a prophet of Allah named Ali Salam. And Ali Salam is one of the rare prophets in the Quran, you know that most prophets in the Quran had to face a lot of opposition and they were not in a position of power. So the people that didn't believe in them were always in a position of wealth, power and status and the prophets were struggling against them. But few exceptions exists to that norm. the eventuality of use of Ali Salaam in the ministry position, so they might Ali salaam, and in fact,

00:03:13--> 00:03:19

Tao Ali salaam are in a position of power in Allah describes how much power and authority he had given them.

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

In that position of power, Allah azza wa jal describes this one incident that occurred in his life this is you can set the stage for what's happening. He is the ruler, he has a palace or a castle. And part of that palace is his inner quarters. If you imagine the old days and palaces of kings, the Kings quarters are not easily accessible. They're up on top of a tower. They're guarded, right? This is a it's a chamber that's that's very difficult to get to, for obvious security reasons. And then whatever they want to have any private conversations or whatever, these are chambers that aren't accessible to everybody else. And this is of course, also a place for him to pray. So it's his

00:04:00--> 00:04:07

private prayer chambers, his private masala that's there. Now, what Allah describes here is,

00:04:09--> 00:04:54

while attack a neighbor will have asked me if the server will rub did the news of the arguing groups. Hussam in Arabic can be used for one person, it can be used for an entire group. Okay. So that's a summary. The plural form here describes that there was a group of people that were having an argument that scale the giant wall, that you get the news of those who scale the giant wall is the Soweto and Murad the praying quarters. So the scene set here is now the LA Salamis alone in his prayer area where he walks in and he sees people that have come from the outside, not from the security gates. They've come from the outside they've climbed the walls of the palace somehow come

00:04:54--> 00:05:00

in from the window and they are in his private quarters. Now from the from the grammar of the language

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

It's not clear how many there are, you could say hoss. Money means two. But then after that, so what are the plural is also being used. At the very least, there are two people, or there are more than two. And they represent two sides. So there's one person with many in one person with a few, or there's many on one side, or one or the other. Or there's one in one we don't, that's not entirely clear. But there are some indications that they, at least from a biological point of view, that they seem like more than two, or there's an overwhelming number, and that's captured inside, that that's how they fit into a world. So this is a pretty scary situation, right? You're nowadays after

00:05:36--> 00:05:48

obviously, we don't live in palaces. But if you're ever in a hotel or something, and you check into your room on the 40th floor, and as you're walking in some guys breaking in from the window and saying, Hey, I got a question for you, I've seen your videos on YouTube.

00:05:49--> 00:06:26

It's a pretty scary situation. You know, it's a pretty psychotic to these people clearly aren't normal. And they're just jumping in at me. So it's actually a very terrifying situation. Plus for kings, the only time somebody would walk into your quarters like that is to assassinate you. That's the only reason they would come the other route. We also know about that with an insulin that he's a man of justice. And he has because he's the ruler. He's also the judge. You know, back in the day, people used to bring their cases they were pleased their requests to the court of the king. And he just hears their pleas one by one. And he passes the case or give somebody money or help somebody

00:06:26--> 00:07:08

out or resolve the conflict. And the next one, and the next one, the next one, like the town hall hearings, right? So he has a process for that already. So why are these people taking this strange route to come and jump into his his praying quarters is Da da da da Buddha. When they came in, they just sprung up on Dowdell Islam. Firstly, I mean him, so he was shaken up because of them. So he was terrified because of them. Now fuzzy is one of the Arabic words for fear. And it has an interesting connotation, the kind of fear that makes you not think straight. So for a moment, you get rattled, and you can't think very clearly. Now there are different elements of fear, there are times some

00:07:08--> 00:07:50

people when they are in a clutch or fear situation, their their senses get heightened, and they're able to make better decisions in that moment. Right. And others in other situations, you're caught in a situation off guard, and you're not normally you're not processing things in the normal the way that you would write. So he's in this situation where he thinks he doesn't know what their intention is. And he's a little bit terrified of what they're doing here. So they respond orlu law half don't be scared that the Huff has money but buena, Bob, we are two people that have a conflict. Now cosmological again, mean, one person two people have an argument with each other. Or it could mean

00:07:50--> 00:08:28

two groups that are have a conflict with each other. And there are a bunch of people on this side, bunch of people on that side. Okay. And this is also kind of making sense from the language Pilu it's not called it's called lose the plural is being used. So there's an overwhelming number plus double dialing Salaam is known to be a warrior, he can handle two people. But this seems to be a more overwhelming number. Right? So one of them, you know, they speak and they say, We're two groups that are having an internal dispute, some of us are having a disagreement with the other fact combining billhook make a judgment between us, you know, justly will help whether to shoot, you

00:08:28--> 00:09:07

know, a sharp or you should to a starter, this is an interesting verb in Arabic, it actually means moja was at will had, while Cardinal Matata, like when you go past the limit. And you you break the law in some way. So don't use your position of power to be biased against one of us, and not the other. Obviously, you know, the background is also that kings normally favor the wealthy. Right? Because the wealthy help keep their kingdom going. Like nowadays, okay, we don't have you know, in the West, at least, we don't have kingdoms that much. But the idea that politicians like the people that donate to their campaigns, so if one of them and their business is in trouble, like if there's

00:09:07--> 00:09:45

an oil lobby or a gun lobby or whatever, lobby that's making a lot of money, and it's supporting a particular political party or a candidate, then when they have an issue, the you know, the president's going to listen a little more carefully, right, because they supported this campaign. So there's always a relationship in history between money and power. Right? So people with money, try to influence those that have power. And people in power can only stay in power, if they stay good with the people that have the money. The Treasury is kind of how you hold the government together. So the threat that's been given to him now in his own quarters, this is again, not the courtroom.

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

This is his personal space. But they're saying make fear judgment between us. Don't be unfair. Don't cross any lines with our twisted, why deny us and guide us to the straight path guide us to you know, we'll listen to your verdict we trust your verdict.

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

That's why we're here. So this is already a pretty strange, shocking kind of situation. And you would expect out early salaams, immediate response to be security. Get these people out of here. I'll hear their case in the courtroom. I'll deal with that later. But down the alley, some decides to instead deal with their case immediately. Now, it's it's important to wonder why would someone do that? Why wouldn't he just say, Hey, this is not the time. This is not the way you need to take the proper channels do this appropriately. This is no way to get justice by busting into my, my private quarters. My family could have been here, anything anybody could have been here, he could have any

00:10:37--> 00:11:13

number of justifiable reasons to not hear anything they have to say. But he's engaging them in conversation. Anyway, the question then begs itself, why is he doing that? Why is he Why is he talking to them to begin with, he doesn't owe them this conversation. And he doesn't know that these are will go, I'm going to break the surprise. For those of you who haven't heard this story before, these were all angels sent by Allah azza wa jal as a test. This was actually not real people. This was actually and they, once this test was over, they disappeared. And he realized he was just being tested. So this was actually a, you know, a case study an exercise, a drill that he was being put

00:11:13--> 00:11:58

through, but he doesn't know that yet. So he allows them to engage in this inquiry on their terms. Now, this is the first problem that I want to put before you. Any any one of us can face any kind of injustice. And actually, what we're gonna see here is in that hierarchy, when they start describing their case in the hotel room with this Runa Naja, will imagine wahala. One of them says this right here, this is actually my brother, this seriously, I have a fight with him. But actually, this is my brother, and he owns 9999 sheep, and I only have one sheep. Right, so he's already starting to describe the the problem, right? Now, this doesn't seem like a war situation, this is about sheep.

00:11:58--> 00:12:10

Right, and they are able, they're willing to scale the walls of a palace, risking execution to solve a sheep problem, right, they would be the ones that gets a beehive.

00:12:12--> 00:12:51

Because of what they're doing, they're risking their life to do that, in that is also a kind of lesson. Sometimes a problem isn't very big. It's actually not very big. It can be resolved with conversation, it can be resolved with some mediation, something like that. But you know what, people can take a small problem. And if enough of them get heated up enough about it, they can actually make it into a very large, serious problem. And they're willing to take steps that normal human beings would never take escalating something. So the first lesson to you and me is that we're going to face situations in life, which can be resolved easily,

00:12:52--> 00:13:17

is just cheap. Okay, it's not the end of the world. It's not that costly. And it's, it's, it's not that big of a problem. But you will always have a choice. You can take this issue and resolve it calmly, gently, somebody has to back down, or you can let the conflict escalate. In conversation, sometimes somebody says something you don't want to hear. You said, What did you just say?

00:13:18--> 00:13:49

Wait, say that again? And then they say it again? Oh, that's it. And now it's escalating, right? Now, you could find a way to stand your ground, hold yourself respect, and yet not escalate the situation. And then when you take it to your cousin, your uncle, a by the way, they said this, the uncle also has a choice to make the situation much worse. Oh, yeah. Oh, you're gonna let that go. You're just gonna listen to that and not respond? Or then he said, listen,

00:13:50--> 00:14:28

they're going through something there. They have their own issues. This kind of thing happens. Are you making this a big deal? Let's go solve it. Right? You every time to every person that's this, this is communicated with, they can either escalate or deescalate. Right. But this is clearly escalated to a point where they're willing to risk their lives and come all the way up. And if they're this crazy, perhaps even if they if they hear a judgment that they don't want to hear, then they could do other crazy things, if they if they've gone this far. Right. So what we're what we're learning about is a story where people are seeking justice, but they are willing to do a lot of

00:14:28--> 00:15:00

injustice in the name of seeking justice. I'll say that, again. There are people that are apparently seeking justice, but maybe willing to engage in all manner of injustice, to pursue that Justice breaking into somebody's home, whether they're the king or not, isn't even the point is a terrible injustice. And your conflict does not justify you doing this. You understand. So Allah is teaching us our reality. People in their mind are doing the right thing. But even if you're doing the right if you feel you have the right to

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

engage in this fight to engage in this conflict. You don't get to cross other limits set by Allah to do it.

00:15:07--> 00:15:41

But thou, Ali Salam, from his point of view says, sees that there are people that need help, I'm going to overlook their violation against me. They've crossed the line with me to the invaded my space, I won't hold them to account for that. Let me just help them because he's in a position to get them all killed. Actually. That's that's a crime punishable by death. There are snipers on top of the White House, you know that right? And in any other governmental building. So this is enough for them to be executed. But he has. He's been given power, but he's also been given Rama he has the power to annihilate them. But instead, he's just going to deal with their problem shaken up as he

00:15:41--> 00:16:16

is. So he decides to talk to them. But before he talks to them, the there are what is one brother who owns 99 sheep, the other brother owns just one sheep. The guy who's talking right now is the owner of one sheep. So the wealthy one is not speaking right now. It's the poor one, the victim, that speaking and what does he say? He says, Allah for Allah Akbar Neha, so he said, My brother said, just let me complete, you know, give me the custodian custodianship give me ownership of that one sheep, I got 99 Already, I'll just take care of the 100th one, what are you gonna do with one sheep? Just give it to me.

00:16:18--> 00:16:53

And I don't want to give it to him. So he basically starts being rough with me. And as well as any Filippov he talks to me No, no harsh way. When he addresses me dresses me harshly. I can imagine if I'm gonna see this from the 99 sheep owners point of view. What are you doing with one sheep? Let me just pay you money. Just give it to me. I'll take care of it. You don't know what you're doing with one sheep? You know? And he's like, Oh, you're so mean to me. You try you try to take my one sheep, even after you have 99. He's got his point of view. From his point of view, I'm doing my brother a favor. The sheep's gonna die. You're not going to get anything out of it. Just why don't you just

00:16:53--> 00:17:20

take some money for it? The other one? No, no, no, he's just trying to oppress me he has so much and he's got his eye on my one sheep. Right? What we're learning again, is there can be multiple points of view. And we're learning the suppose the victims point of view, who says My brother is oppressing me, because he wants to take over the one sheep that I have. Or maybe he doesn't even want to pay me he just wants to take it. He's wants to take it from me, because he's so so you know, powerful and wealthy, right? Well as any filter.

00:17:21--> 00:18:01

Now, the next idea is about the response of delta A Salam, he hears this case. But there's already a big problem that I'm getting ahead of myself, but I want you to understand the problem. When a judge hears the case, right. There's the plaintiff. And there's, you know, there's two sides, there's also the defense. Right? There's people that are, if there's two people that have a dispute, they both have to be heard from, they both have to present their case, they both have to say, Hey, okay, he spoke his version. Now, let me tell you my version of events. Or let me tell you what, what he didn't tell you. Because if somebody wants to come to you and say, they have this problem, this

00:18:01--> 00:18:11

wrong thing was done to them. Let me tell you, 99% of the time, I'll use the 99 from CYA 99% of the time, you know what they'll tell you, all the things that make their case look good.

00:18:12--> 00:18:15

And they won't tell you all the parts that make their case look bad.

00:18:16--> 00:18:22

Right? If you're if two brothers at home to siblings at home, had a fight, Ahmed punched me.

00:18:23--> 00:18:31

You know, he hit me. Okay, I had told you how to hit your sister. You could go that route. Or you can say what did you do nothing?

00:18:33--> 00:18:38

What if I've never done anything? I haven't come you know, she kicked me like 10 times before I punched her.

00:18:39--> 00:18:45

And now there's those more to the story. But if you just hear my punch me, Then Emma is gonna get you know, sentenced.

00:18:47--> 00:19:03

And buddy's gonna be like, got you again. Because dad doesn't want to hear your version. He doesn't believe you. Right. So you could just, you could be predisposed to hearing someone and saying, how can they be lying? Look at the poor guy. He's just got one sheep.

00:19:04--> 00:19:42

You know, miskeen. And if I say to the owner of 99 sheep, hey, why don't you tell me your side of the story? It might seem like, look, I'm the king. I want to hear the millionaire side. The 99 sheep owner side. Man, these kings, they always want to favor the business people. They always want to favor the wealthy. Right? So now there's a PR problem to possibly right because if you listen to the wealthy, then you're like, but I told you I have the problem. Why are you listening to his side? Right? The thing is, when you experience this at home, if you have children, if there's a conflict among your kids, and you listen to one kid's version of events,

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

they'll you'll never be able to hear their events without the other child saying no. I saw what happened last summer, and they in the middle. They're lying, you're lying. And you have to say No, let him finish. Let him finish and they finish and then you try to tell your version. And before you leave

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

until you get to the second child, no, you don't even want to hear what I have to say you only already believe in.

00:20:06--> 00:20:45

So what happens, people that are so passionate about getting their justice means winning their case, they then accuse the judge of being unfair. Right? And they all you're always favorite this one, you always favorite that one, they are predisposed, you know, assumptions, that someone is always going to favor XY or Z, just like in a family happens in the courtroom happens here happens there. You know, in any time, you're in a position of judgment, you will make assumptions based on your previous experience. Man, I know all these like, all these, you know, father in law's, they're all the same. All these daughter in laws are all the same. All these, you know, these men are all the

00:20:45--> 00:21:23

same. All these kinds of women, they're all the same. I've seen like four of them before. That means I can speak on behalf of 400 million more of them. Because I've seen for examples already, you know, we do you experience one or two cases. And now you know that all of humanity works this way. You figured it all out? Right? There's an assumption, assumptions are really dangerous, but they make the world easier to understand. Because you've seen one or two cases, that must be everybody's like that. Right? And then it's not, it's hard. It's, it's much more convenient to see the world from the assumptions point of view, and not see every case as unique and individual, just easier that way.

00:21:23--> 00:21:51

Right. And in an environment where somebody will cry out against someone, and victim, you know, like, blame them as the perpetrator. But you know, there are sometimes viral videos and things like that, where they show show one person oppressing another, right, somebody is beating somebody up somebody is humiliating, some, some some context, right? And everybody's like, Oh, this person is a racist, or this person is oppressive, or this person is abusing their power, or whatever. There's all kinds of stories like that. Could it be that there's more to that story?

00:21:53--> 00:22:23

Even if there's 1000 times that this kind of thing happens? Could it be 1000 at first time, it's actually something else that's going on? Is that possible? And if somebody even raises that voice, all of a sudden they become a racist or a supporter of the oppressor or you know, the shame of the victim, etc, etc. You understand? Now, what does the Dalai Lama do? He says, God Allah God vada Maccabi su Alinea Jotika in an erg, he, he has done wrong to you by asking you for your one sheep and having a join his 99

00:22:24--> 00:22:31

he's done wrong to you. And then he adds a INEC. ethelia Minute, minute Hello, party, labelee Babu Mala vowel

00:22:32--> 00:23:09

and there are lots and lots of business partners, people that are mixed in family, people that have joint property, people that have joined businesses, people that have joint work, people like that, whose lives are intertwined with people whose lives are intertwined with each other. A lot of times people that have lives intertwined with each other, then some of them start crossing the lines against the others. They start in you know, like for example, if a parent passes away, then the inheritance is not distributed fairly among the siblings, for example, property disputes happen, right? Or for example, when people started a business together, and then later on one of them is not

00:23:09--> 00:23:41

putting the work in or investment in, but they still want more of the income and then they fall things fall apart. Right? So people that are intertwined a lot of times when it comes to money and assets label the bubble Humala Bob in the Latina Amanullah middle Sally hottie, except for those who truly believe and do good deeds, so what is Allah telling us that we think we believe in do good deeds means you believe in Allah, you do, vicar, you remember him, you you seek his forgiveness, you pray your five prayers, you fashion Ramadan, you go to Hajj, and now alleged telling us when you do those things, and you're still, you know,

00:23:43--> 00:24:21

scamming your partner in the business, when you're still lying about your taxes, and you're still you know, chipping your sister for her sharing the inheritance and you can go to all the hedges you want, you don't count as far as Allah is concerned, among levena amanu Amiel Sally had, because if people have human in good deeds, then they don't act like that when it comes to money in business. Because that's all that then all of that's just a show. But it's not really human in Armel Salia. So he says, What kalila Mahan and how few those people actually are people that truly believe truly do good deeds, and then they you know, they don't wronged each other. It's interesting that that would

00:24:21--> 00:24:55

be some I told you is in a position of power, right? You know what that means that people under him are all Muslim, he was a prophet of the Israelites who were the Muslims of the time. So he is the Khalifa of a Muslim Ummah at the time. So the majority of people living under his rule are actually believers. So strange words coming out of him saying, except for those who believe and do good deeds and how few they are, in fact, he's ruling in a place where they are the majority but he's not talking about the official label of being Muslim, or the appearance of being Muslim or the attendance in the masjid. He's not talking about that. He's talking about people who actually live

00:24:55--> 00:25:00

by Eman and good deeds. And as a result of that they don't wrong each other

00:25:00--> 00:25:15

They don't exert their influence against each other. What any, this observation is absolutely true, what kalila Mahoma? And how few they are. Well, one nada who do an AMA further now, listen to these words and doubt it some realized immediately that we were testing him.

00:25:17--> 00:25:30

He it dawned on him after he passed this judgment. What was his judgment, the wealthy one has done wrong. And this happens a lot of times, people that have more influence when they're intertwined with those that are weaker, the weak, oppress the poor, it happens all the time. That's what he says.

00:25:31--> 00:25:38

So when he realized when he passes judgment, the moment his judgment came out of him, he realized that wasn't what I was supposed to do.

00:25:39--> 00:26:09

Even though many of the things he said are true. You know, in the hula, Inokashira mineral Culatta layer with the bamboo Malabar is true. In the Latina, Amina, Amina Sally hat is true, what Colleano mom is true. But he realized just because that happens all the time, you cannot use what happens all the time, and bring that into your thought process. When you're judging this case, you have to leave that aside, you have to leave that this is a new case.

00:26:10--> 00:26:20

I've given you this example before, if you have a divorce court, right, and the judge is a man, and he himself went through a divorce, and the wife took everything.

00:26:21--> 00:26:30

He's kind of mad. But he's the judge. And then in front of him, there's another case. And there's a woman who's about to take everything from her husband.

00:26:32--> 00:27:12

He doesn't see a new case, he sees his own case. And he sees a cartoon version of his wife's face in front of the the woman's and he's his judgment can get influenced because he's really upset about what happened already. You understand? He's bringing his experience into judgment. He's bringing his other observations into the judgment. And doubt Alehissalaam, as a ruler has seen this all the time. Obviously, he's not speaking in just thin air. He's a ruler, he seemed corruption in his society. He seen the powerful oppress the weak. That's what he's been fighting his whole career. So when this case comes in front of him, he's remembering all the other hundreds of cases where he's had to deal

00:27:12--> 00:27:54

with this exact same situation. So based on that knowledge, he makes this comment. But interestingly, these comments are missing two things. One, it's missing the testimony of the guy against whom there's a claim. The 99 Jeep owner never said a word. That's the first thing missing. And if you want to have a fair trial, you got to hear from all sides. You got to let somebody defend themselves, they have a right to a defense, they have a right to a context. Could it be that these allegations are false? It's possible? Could it be that there's more to the story that was conveniently omitted by the one sheep owner, to make his story look more believable, make himself

00:27:54--> 00:28:06

appear as more of a victim? Is it possible? Absolutely. He's not being accused. But you know what, we've turned that into, Oh, you don't believe the victim? No, I don't believe there. I can't believe that if I believe they're a victim, I've already judged the case.

00:28:08--> 00:28:52

He's a you don't believe the victim until we can prove that there's a victim calling them the victim is already a problem. You understand? Some because we judged before this case even began. And now in our climate, there's already outside pressure to judge the case, the way the social media wants to be to judge the case. The judge the case, the way the outcry wants to judge, the protesters outside want the case judged a certain way, right, based on what they may have heard or seen. And so it could be politically very difficult for anyone to make judgment about any case, being blind to what's going on outside. And it could be because of that pressure. And I would argue some cases,

00:28:52--> 00:29:28

because he's dealt with 100 cases. He's dealt with 1000 cases. But he realized this was a test. This was a test. So two things that were missing. You didn't hear from both sides. And you made assumptions about other cases. And you brought that thought process into this case. If you're going to judge anyone, anyone about any situation, and you cannot bring your past experience. You're hundreds of times you've seen this before. Oh, I hear this all the time. Oh, here we go again. No, there's no Here we go. Again, every story, every case, every conflict is unique.

00:29:29--> 00:29:38

And everyone has a right to be heard and understood. If you you and I truly understood that. You would you would see the internet differently.

00:29:39--> 00:30:00

You would see most of the conversations you're having at home with family members differently. You would see your opinions of so many people differently. Because so much of that is informed by our experiences with others and our assumptions imposed on them. What does he say? People, people wronged each other. You know, those who don't know

00:30:00--> 00:30:38

Even those who believe and do good deeds don't do so. But then he at the end he says, well, one that NEMA fatter now for still Ferrara bajo? So he sought the forgiveness of his robe. That was a salaam six forgiveness of his rod. What's he asking forgiveness for? What is he done in the ayat except speak something that's true. The only thing that's wrong here that he realizes he should have done is that he should have turned back. He should have understood both sides. He should have investigated further, just because he says I have one sheep. He had ID nine, just just because he says he has. I have a brother. None of that stuff adds up yet. There's actually even a third

00:30:38--> 00:31:17

problem. This wasn't happening in the courtroom. Where was this happening? This was happening in the merabh. There's a time and place and process for justice, isn't it? There's a time and a place in a process. If you bake that time in place and process what was the first problem when they came into the room? Didn't you get shocked, didn't get shaken up. A judge needs to be in a position where he is any emotion cannot alter his thinking. When he's already shaken up. He already you know, he's not on solid stable footing. But in his courtroom, when he's mentally prepared, when he understand when he there's a process in place. This is the right place and time to do it. So justice isn't just

00:31:17--> 00:32:01

about getting one's verdict. Justice is about these three things the right process time in place. It's about having both sides heard clearly. And it's about the judgment being free of other cases, and other assumptions. When those three things are in place, then judgment is happening. And even the best judges can sometimes forget that when they're in the heat of the moment. So even though the LA salon forgot it momentarily and what did he do as a result, he made a step far to his run. And he fell into such that a couple of hours later as I end this I share with you Jada who do in Jamnagar Khalifa and Filardi campaign and Nancy will help when Tiberian Hawa for you Lula and Sevilla, I'll

00:32:01--> 00:32:45

share this IRA with you and will conclude today that would, we have no doubt made you someone left behind but responsibility in the land, so judged between people using justice and truth and don't follow emotions don't follow empty emotions, our whims for you will look unstability left and they will mislead you away from Allah's path. They don't listen, follow any desires, know how I hear is not his desires. However, here is his own bias from previous experience. That's also how, and Allah is telling him don't use hover, as a judge, because if you do, it will take you away from Allah's path in the arena of the Luna and Sevilla, and no doubt about it. Those who who stray away from

00:32:45--> 00:33:25

Allah's path, the home either been shady, don't be minor Sue, they have severe punishment, intense punishment because of what they forgot. Because of them forgetting you, and what did they forget your hisab the day on which exact accounting will happen? Allah has described judgment is to us many, many times. What is he told us about judgment day? Is somebody else's opinion of you going to count on judgment day? No, only the facts will. Everything that will be held against you has proper witnesses and evidence, and nobody else's case is being looked at in comparison to yours? Oh, this one's just like that one put them in this category. Everyone's being judged glioma to Mel chiamata

00:33:25--> 00:34:02

further, coming as an individual, Allah has set a precedent even in describing Judgment Day, he's actually given us a glimpse of what judgment should look like in this life. How should you judge any individual within the limits Allah has given you, you should not you and I should not be you know, making any, any bit of assumptions. All these people are the same. All the people that do this, have done it for the same exact reason, the same crime can be done for 100 different reasons. The same crime could be done for tons of reasons. You know, I just think think about that today. Just process this today, as I leave you,

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

if you testify against someone falsely, okay, in court, in court, you testify against someone falsely, and you accused him of stealing, and because of your testimony, they get arrested.

00:34:17--> 00:34:19

Right? That's a pretty bad thing I would imagine.

00:34:20--> 00:34:28

But Yusuf alayhi salam testifies, or creates a testimony against his brother and gets him arrested and withheld does any?

00:34:29--> 00:34:59

It's the same. If you just heard Oh, my god, somebody falsely testified. What a horrible thing that's evil. Islam is really, there's a context. There's parts you don't know. It's remarkable that in that story, and that's if you just heard about oh, false testimony, or false imprisonment, then you would say this is evil, and this is bad. What did Allah add their folk who leave their admin Eileen, in that same context, Allah says above everybody who knows or somebody who knows more, is the All Knowing it's not just about Allah ma

00:35:00--> 00:35:39

This is actually about you can't know all the dynamics of the case before you pass judgment. So I pray that we take this warning seriously, if thou or Islam is being given the warning, you better not become biased in your judgment, because those who do have forgotten the day of hisab, and they can have severe punishment. I don't want you to be from those kinds of people. And this definitely applies to us. And we, I pray that we don't fall trap into the kind of wave kind of thinking and this group kind of thinking and the cultish kind of thinking that has now become commonplace. You're belong either this group or that group, and you have a position and that's it. Now, now your

00:35:39--> 00:36:16

judgment about everybody is the same. Everybody who belongs to that group is all the same. There's no There's no nuance. There's no, you know, complication. It's easy judgment, right? You can begin to have little information and have big judgments. And the way of this Dean about other people is even if you have a lot of information, you're still scared to pass judgment. Because there's might be something you don't know yet. There may be more benefit of the doubt to give. So I pray Allah instills this in all of us and saves us from the fitna that arises as a result of not being aware of these realities BarakAllahu li Walakum filco Anil Hakeem.
