Santa Monica, welcome back to Allah loves. So I said that the two most common occurrences of Allah who you have that Allah loves in the Quran, or in the law, one went up in the law, your head will mercy mean that Allah loves those who observe piety, and Allah loves those who observe excellence. The third most common occurrence in the Koran is in the law, your head will look so thin, that Allah loves those who are just Allah loves those who are equitable. Now, usually when you think about justice, you think about big picture things. You think about a ruler, you think about an authority, you think about a government, you think about all of these huge systems that exist outside of your

00:00:54--> 00:01:33

immediate control. But if you realize the references to justice in the Quran, are usually talking about things that we actually encounter on a daily basis. So a lot of talks about how he hates oppression, Allah hates transgression, Allah hates all of those things that demonstrate inequity. But when it comes to us in our own individual lives, one does a lot praise those who do justice and those who are equitable. Allah says he loves those who are just when I add to the men that come Shanna and Coleman, Allah, Allah tala, he loves those people that are just even with people that they don't like, okay, so you don't let your hatred of a people cause you to be unjust to them. And

00:01:33--> 00:02:13

that earns you the love of Allah. Allah says, Well, you will mock Saltine and certain who do lots when he's talking about a person that brings two people together, or two groups of people together, that have some sort of argument or some sort of disagreement or some sort of infighting, that's something that could be occurring in your own family life in your own workplace, or it could be occurring in your own community. And you play the role of Islam of rectifying the situation reconciling between the parties, but most importantly, maintaining a sense of justice, the scholars warned us not to read traditions about the just ruler, who is the first person shaded by Allah on

00:02:13--> 00:02:56

the Day of Judgment under his throne, or the one who's given a pulpit of light, just in the capacity of the Sultan or the Imam or the ruler or the government or the authority, but rather to see ourselves capable of attaining those positions. Every single one of us is placed in a situation. In fact, multiple situations, sometimes even on a daily basis, in which we have the ability to either be a vehicle of justice in someone else's life or to uphold it in our own immediate lives, with the things that are around us. In Allah, you humble mazzoleni. Allah loves those who are just and Allah hates those who oppress and oppression is a disqualification from the love of Allah subhanho wa

00:02:56--> 00:03:34

Taala. And each one of us should look in our lives and say, Well, if I am being unjust, how will that fare on the Day of Judgment with the first rule is lovable money on there is no transgression that will be tolerated today, when a lot even does justice between the animals? How can I expect them to show up on the Day of Judgment, and not be taken to task for my own injustice? The last thing that's important to mention here, the soufiane authority, may Allah have mercy on him, he said something very powerful in regards to our own lives. Because the first thing that you think about when you think about injustice is am I actually a source of injustice in someone else's life? Not?

00:03:34--> 00:04:15

Am I being complacent with someone else's injustice? Or am I not standing up for someone when I should be standing up for someone or being fair and equitable in a situation but am I myself guilty of harming someone or oppressing someone? And so Fianna 30, may Allah have mercy on him. He said that I wish that on the Day of Judgment, the only one that I had to deal with was Allah. But on the Day of Judgment, though, Allah might forgive all of the sins that you have committed in regards to your relationship with him. Allah will not allow for wrongdoing that you did to someone else to go unaccounted for. Now if Allah loves you, and this is what even Mr. Little the alarm on his set, he

00:04:15--> 00:04:57

said that if Allah loves you, then he would allow for all of those people that you owe, because of injustices to be repaid from your deeds, but Allah would increase one of your good deeds in size to a point that it would cover for those deficiencies found in your deeds. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala first and foremost, to protect us from being unjust to other people, to protect us from being complacent with injustice when it's apparent to us to protect us from doing things that are inequitable from judging in a way that's faulty when we have parties due to being swayed by interest or something else. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to not judge us by His justice on the Day of

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

Judgment, but instead by His mercy

00:05:00--> 00:05:03
