You had Adina Hammond Chappell la Haku colon salida use LA, MER calm way of looking with an Uber come on the altar la hora Sudha who photographers are frozen or Lynmouth and my beret. We begin by praising Allah subhana wa jal and bearing witness that none has the right to be worshipped or unconditionally

00:00:41--> 00:01:20

obeyed except for him. And we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is his final messenger We ask Allah to send his peace and blessings upon him, the prophets and messengers that came before him, his family and companions that served alongside him, and those that follow in their bliss of path until the day of judgment and we ask Allah to make us amongst them Allahumma Amin, the brothers and sisters, this past read, we spoke about the Hadith where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions the sanctity of the believer being greater than the sanctity of what has become a great relic of belief, which is the Kamba

00:01:21--> 00:01:58

and I wanted to build on this with a hadith that we frequently quotes, but perhaps don't pay attention to the subtleties and I think that one of the things that we have to remind ourselves of is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would repeat things, and he would remind of concepts that were well enshrined, but then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, while we're repeating them, would also give you another layer to them, so that you're not just glancing over some of the words that are being used. The famous Hadith and an oran bin Bashir, about the Allahu Taala and who have been caught or sort of lightly some of Allahu Allahu wa salam method will not mean if he Tila

00:01:58--> 00:02:49

de him. Or Tara Humi him what are our coffee him method or just the either stuck I mean heard one today or another who it will just study the Sati welcome. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in this hadith that has multifocal nada, it's an agreed upon Hadith and its authenticity, that the example of the believers in their Malwa in their affection for one another Ouattara homie, him and in their mercy for one another, and in their sympathy, compassion for one another is like that of one single body. When any part of the body aches, the entire body responds with sleeplessness, and fever. This is a Hadith that you hear often. However, I want to focus on the subtleties between

00:02:49--> 00:03:30

the three things that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions why because often this hadith is repeated. And you kind of look at the first three things as the same thing just being emphasized over and over again, in fact, to look at the translations and sometimes what is Rama is up what is mawatha is Rama it mixes it all up love, mutual affection, care, we get the main premise of the Hadith, but there's something very profound about the way that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam constructs the rights of the Ummah upon us. First and foremost, he started off with sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Alma whadda Toba do him. And when you talk about a Nevada, Nevada means

00:03:30--> 00:04:12

an active love. It's actually the highest level of the three things that the prophets of Allah who it was Saddam is mentioning here, it means that you love someone in your heart. And your deeds lend themselves consistently and actively to that love. And so you feel it, and you're acting upon it. And you are showing it in every way consistently. And so for example, when the prophets lie, some says to hide due to humble, give gifts to one another. And you will love one another more. That's a form of Melinda that you love people so much that you're constantly looking out for your brother and sister and you're exchanging gifts with one another and hamdulillah we're passing either either time

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

that fosters that gift giving in the community, the prophets like some says that you know, you will not believe until you love one another and shall I tell you something that if you were to do it, you would love one another epsilon rabbinical spread, Salam amongst yourselves. Get used to saying salam amongst yourselves. When you see your brother and sister in the supermarket, even if you don't know who they are say salam to them. say salam to them in public. say salam to them in private. Don't replace your Salam with other forms of greeting one another, increase your love with one another through Salam. When you pray next to each other I know social distancing, all that right, but the

00:04:55--> 00:04:58

Prophet slice I'm saying not to leave gaps between you

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

and non COVID

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

days not to leave gaps between you because it will increase the love between you when you set up your lines for prayer don't put gaps between you in normal days otherwise the Shavonne will foster division and gaps between you. So this is Alma Wada. This is love, it's Ehsaan it's excellence. It's looking out for people, it's feeling joy, and being a cause of joy for your ummah, for your brother or sister, who otherwise you would have no relationship to your brother or sister graduates, they get married their success of a group of people success of an institution, there is no wonder that is at the institutional level as well, that we will support other institutions will support other

00:05:43--> 00:06:24

massage will support other collective efforts and be proud of them and lend our support to them because it's my Wonder it's a right of the believers upon the believers. So this is the highest level of the three that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned, the rhythm I mentioned the ayah in Alladhina amanu Samuel slightly had a manual with the beautiful idea that Allah subhanaw taala says that those who believe and work deeds of righteousness, the Most Merciful will grant them and would, and that is a special affection from him to you, and a special affection amongst yourselves for his sake. The highest level to aspire for son amongst yourselves. The second one is

00:06:24--> 00:07:12

to offer me him mercy. And we know that the presence of Love is not always there and mercy. Sometimes you show mercy to someone you really don't like, because there's a higher calling. There's something that is causing you to show mercy even in a situation where you feel a sense of how much where you feel a sense of hardship, constriction in the heart, but you still show mercy. It is forgiveness amongst ourselves. It is showing mercy when someone's name is brought up in your presence. It's showing mercy in regards to deaths. When you loan someone money or when someone owns you, it's letting things go all of that is a form of Rama. It's mercy. And there's something very

00:07:12--> 00:07:54

important about this by the way, because ALLAH SubhanA wa says mana Yatta hum la yo hum right? Whoever does not show mercy will not have mercy shown to them. It will humble man fill out your humble man for summer so many Hadith in this regard, show mercy to those on the earth and the one in the heavens will show mercy upon you. It's very interesting about these two words is that they are also the the most important ingredients of a good marriage to a woman it and halacha Coleman and for cecum as Raj and Li Tuscano. Ilya, what Jana the intercom, my what data what are the first two things the prophets why some mentions in this hadith about how an ummah functions are the first two

00:07:54--> 00:08:06

ingredients, the primary two ingredients of a good marriage. Why? Because in the beginning, it's all no wonder or at least it looks like my wedding, the honeymoon phase, right? We're in love.

00:08:08--> 00:08:20

Then after that comes, what? The first moment of tension? Are you going to be forgiving or not? Are you going to let things go? Are you going to always try to score points on your spouse? Are you going to try to win every argument is that the goal?

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

Is it that now that there's tension, things are different, you show no mercy to that person that you have now been paired off with in the holiest type of bonds that exist after the parent and the child. Now it's all out the window. Why? Because I don't love her anymore. I don't love him anymore. That was quick. It's only been two months.

00:08:45--> 00:09:04

But the honeymoon phase wore off. Right? All the romance has gone away. And now it's like, Wait a minute. Now it's just arguments, and everyone's trying to win the arguments. That's a problem. Now that doesn't mean that mawatha doesn't exist in a marriage no matter what there has to exist, but sometimes you need to activate Rama.

00:09:05--> 00:09:47

And you need to strive to always be in a place of melody. And sometimes LACMA is that you are in a state of nawada even when you're upset, still gift giving, still being charitable with your words, still showing compassion Xsan excellence in your marriage at all times. So these are the first two ingredients that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions, and then the prophets like Selim mentions two out of two out of him. So this is a different word. This is sympathy. And I'm very intentionally using the word sympathy and not empathy here, even though empathy is greater than sympathy, but out is actually at its root sympathy, that at the bare minimum, you feel bad, you

00:09:47--> 00:10:00

hurt. You see others pain and it does something to you. It moves your heart and the profit slice I'm often would start with the highest and go to the lowest and this is from his manhood sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and teaching his methodology that he

00:10:00--> 00:10:25

starts with the highest. So whoever amongst you sees an evil value value to who we are the start with the highest, don't start with the lowest. Can you change it? Can you actually change it? Okay? If you can't change it, then say something about it. Okay, you can't say something about it, then at least hate it in your heart. So allowed here is the lowest of the three. But it is important. And some of the scholars say something very beautiful. They say, my Wanda is SoloQ. And she wrote,

00:10:26--> 00:11:09

it's both a feeling and an action. You feel my what the inside of you, you love someone and you act in accordance with that love. There are deeds, charitable words, generous words, loving words, loving deeds that are emanating from you, as a result of something in your heart. But what they say is Sudak it's actually a methodology, it's that when the feeling is dissipated, you're still in this, at least in the context of this hadith in particular, that you still show mercy, you still show forgiveness, you still overlook things. These are all forms of Rama. So it's so true. And out of here is true. It's the feeling alone, that at least you have feeling inside of you. You hurt, you

00:11:09--> 00:11:29

see hurts and it does something to you don't like to see your Amma in a bad state. So let's start to break this down. Now, in regards to the consequences, this hadith often gets invoked in the political sense. And how could it not? Right, the betrayal of Muslim leaders of Muslim populations,

00:11:30--> 00:11:37

the betrayal of Muslim leaders and Muslim populations, if only our Muslim countries could be more like an ice cream company? How pathetic is that?

00:11:39--> 00:12:00

Right? I mean, how pathetic is that? It's laughable, but it is pathetic. It is absolutely pathetic. What would it look like? If our Muslim leaders did not, I'm not talking about supporting Muslim populations not stand in the way of the legitimate aspirations of their people. But instead, they act in direct opposition,

00:12:01--> 00:12:44

contrary to anything that would serve the religious, spiritual, political, social upliftment of their own populations and of the Muslim world as a whole. So what would 2 billion people with some semblance of political unity with some semblance of economic unity actually look like? What would economic strength look like? And it's very, gets very interesting here because as soon as you start to talk about political unity of the Muslim world, then you can't do that, you know, Malcolm X, Hajj America, Chavez Rahim Allah, he said that, when you're talking about the unity of black people around the world, he said that once you exit the realm of charity, you know that one successful

00:12:44--> 00:13:00

group of black people in the world to give charity or in the community should give charity once you actually start to talk about the reasons why there is suppression that is global, and you start to talk about establishing meaningful political unity, then you will provoke global hysteria.

00:13:01--> 00:13:42

And when Muslims, you can't even don't even go there to start talking about any semblance. And that is, if that's not Islamophobic I don't know what is that every other religious community can talk about political unity, global unity that transcends nation state that that talks about upliftment that talks about shared reasons of oppression and then shared reasons of upliftment. If that's not Islamophobic, then I don't know what is if Muslims are the only faith community global faith community that's robbed of the ability to even talk about that. And let's also be clear, that the interests that harm, we'll be the first ones to talk about your unity so long as it serves their

00:13:42--> 00:14:26

interests. Emmanuel Macron, passes the bill, the anti separatism bill in France, which is just an excuse to shut down more misogyny, and hurt more Muslims. He'll be the first one to talk about the unity of Imams, so long as the unity of the mouths does what signs off on his charter of nonsense that directly hurts the Muslim population, politically speaking, Western interest historically, we'll talk about and support Muslim inter governmental unity, so long as those inter governmental unities do what serve as a tool of Western interests. So it's all again, in the political sense, but as Muslims, how do we first and foremost make this an issue of faith Eman? It's an issue of Eman and

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

when I say it's an issue of iman, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Jedediah bila while the Allahu Taala animal he says Follow the actual Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala economist Salah eata is occur when no spherically Muslim, he said while the Allahu Anhu I took me out to the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, that I would establish my prayer that I would pay my sucker and that I would have no say, which is the well wishing and sincere advice and upliftment of every Muslim it's a part of faith. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is mentioning

00:15:00--> 00:15:36

This law took me know what had to happen, you don't really believe until you love one another. And so when we're talking about the viability of our Muslim youth in the West, and how do our young Muslims survive the pressures of being young Muslims in a country that shows increasing hostility towards them? How did they deal with Islamophobic aggressions in their schools and in their societies? How do they still say La Ilaha illa Allah, how do they still look and act and be Muslim, we have to remember that we also have to teach them that there is more to Muslim than just Muslims in America.

00:15:38--> 00:16:16

Just like we teach them, that there is more to humanity than those that they see in their own social places. And so your brothers and sisters, this is something that we learn and I'll conclude with what Allah subhana wa Tada concluded with Tao and the river taqwa. What that is, I don't know, if you want everyone that you work with one another, you uplift one another. That ability with taqwa and righteousness, and obedience and good deeds, and you don't cooperate and evil. And that's where the next level of this comes in that first there's a response that the whole body feels sick, when part of us hurts. But then there is us becoming stronger institutions, applying this hadith in the

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

micro sense, when ad messages work together in Dallas, it's better than when two messages work together. And when every message works on its own, you can keep building these big structures, but you know what, you're not living up to your full potential, when a few scholars get together in one capacity and hamdulillah but when 100 scholars get together, to legitimately advanced the Muslim ummah and Hamdulillah that strength is unlike any other strength, yes, should do blah, blah, blah, blah. And so the Muslims become like a structure so we apply that in our own circles as much as we can. And we build and we build and we build and we build, and the prophet and Allah subhanaw taala

00:16:53--> 00:17:38

says, Finally what's the law so Bill, happy Ottawa so the sub that Verily We are in Las in Santa Fe, close Illa, the denominator Samuel signing how to also be happy, what Allah saba. So, we are in a state of loss, except for those who cooperate in that which is righteous, and that which is truth, and they cooperate in patients. It is a loss to ourselves when we don't cooperate and good. It is a loss to the world when the Muslim ummah does not unite amongst itself in whatever capacity it is, and shine its brilliance. Its light forward for the world, whether that's here in Dallas or that's anywhere else in the world. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to uplift those that are suffering wherever

00:17:38--> 00:18:15

they are to connect us to our brothers and sisters to not let us have that deficiency of Eman, that deficiency of faith where we don't hurt when we see our brothers and sisters hurting, to not let us have that deficiency of Eman which is apathy. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to fill our hearts with the love of Him and the love of that which is beloved to him. We ask Allah subhanaw taala Allah Muhammad ADA United Iman was the unit who will be in our career, Elaine uncomfortable for Zuko will RCN or Jana Mina, Russia and that ALLAH SubhanA fills our hearts with faith. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala makes hated to us wickedness and evil that Allah subhanho wa Taala makes us amongst those

00:18:16--> 00:18:26

that work towards righteousness work together towards righteousness and uplift the vulnerable amongst us Allahumma Amin okolo, Colorado Stotler, developing recited Muslim infested Filipino lawful Rahim.
