appearance of strength, you know, pursuit of strength, this idea of his idea of pursuit of strength. And the halaqa tonight is building off of that same concept. It's about the concept of righteous anger, righteous anger, and I'm going to read the whole Hadith and then we'll focus on the the bottom part of the Hadith. What number are we on by the way?
1718 now it's not 1617 Okay. This is the hadith of it shall be allowed Taylor and her where she describes the Prophet sallallahu wasallam she says mahira Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam abena moraine in La Habra, a sarcoma. Man Aamir Khan is known for encounter if men can have a better idea nurserymen So the first part of the Hadith inshallah the Allahu anhu says that the Prophet slicin him was never given the choice between two things to two choices in an affair, except that he always took the easier option as long as it wasn't sinful. As long as it wasn't sinful, meaning two things were not presented to the Prophet slice Allah, two choices except that he always took the
easier one. So long as there was no sin in taking that easier choice. She said, if there was any sin in it, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would be the farthest from it of all people, that part of the Hadith is not what we're going to cover today. But you'll see the connection between the two and Sharla is just describing the balance of the character of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. So that's how it's going to tie into the second part. But the Prophet slicin was not someone who liked to make things difficult, and the Prophet slice alum, if two things were presented to him, he did not go for the one with more difficulty. In some, you know, in some show of piety, the Prophet
slicin chose the easier option, as long as it was not a sinful option. And if it was sinful, the Prophet slicin stayed the farthest away from it some of the ways that that Hadith is misapplied is that people say that, you know, if you see to fatwas take the easy futsal all the time because the prophets lie, some always took the easier choice. That's a misapplication of this heady. Okay, so find a way to frame your Zabihullah discussions outside of this Hadith, because the prophets I seldom hear is not talking about an option of halaal and doubtful the profit slice on them is being is or rather is describing the profit slice. I'm in a situation of Helen and Helen. And no, I did
not just pronounce a verdict on meat. I'm just, I was just saying that this is not the Hadeeth to argue about fatawa it's the profit slice. I'm being presented with two clearly halaal choices, okay, on anything, and he always took the easier one at his Salatu was Salam as long as there was no sin in it. And then she says about him Salalah Hardy, he was salam, one and tecoma Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and in FC he in La Quinta Hakka
format Allah has origin another narration woman Tuckerman enough so he got the Hadith says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never took revenge from anyone because of a personal grievance. Unless what Allah had made inviolable was violated. So I'm gonna say that again. Woman tecoma Rasulullah sallallahu it he was sending them an NFC inla and tintagel total metal line as a jell o v wire. Woman Tuckerman enough See, he thought, so the prophets lie Selim never took revenge for a personal grievance of his own. Unless that which Allah had been inviolable, was violated, then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam demonstrated a sense of anger, a sense of anger. What's the connection
between the two things and that's why I read the first part again, the balance of the character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was not a difficult person. He was not a mean person. He was not someone that demonstrated perpetual anger. And here we're gonna focus on the second part, the prophets lie Selim never got angry because of his knifes, because of his self. What's so powerful about this hadith and by the way, Hadith is narrated similar language from NSL, the Allahu taala animal who was sent to the Prophet slice them to serve him as a servant boy, the prophets why Selim? What's so powerful about this is that I shall the Allahu taala and his wife is the one who's
saying this about him, that I never saw him get angry because of a personal grievance. When do you usually get angry because you're offended? Usually, it's an argument that likely would happen in a marriage. I know that Mashallah here, because we have shift. Yes. And we're just teaching us all the time about the fifth marriage. No one argues with their spouses and valley rented him that Allah but those who do argue with their spouses, those who are watching online, usually when you're arguing, usually when you're arguing that
When you always want to score you know that extra point you want to have the upper hand in an argument and I Isha is admiring the character of the prophets lie Selim. He never let a silly argument push him over sallallahu wasallam that wasn't what would make him angry it his slot was set up, rather he was composed. But if what Allah made inviolable was violated, then you saw the anger of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, so that's the Hadith we're going to cover. I'm going to mention a supplemental Hadith to this address inshallah, then we'll, we'll break it down. I couldn't figure out which one will be the Hadith that we frame the discussion around. This Hadith is from above
oredo the Allahu taala and that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the law, you are in the law, your model, Allah subhanho wa Taala has rira
rira is protective honor. Okay? lira can mean self respect, or it can mean like a protective honor a dignity where you feel protective over someone or something usually other than you. Okay, so in the law, you have Allah subhanho wa Taala has the era we're in min. You are And verily the believer, every believer has this quality of zero. And he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam well they are to LA and yet to Luqman, Muhammad Ali and the leader of Allah. Is that a believer or what what would offend the leader of Allah subhana wa tada is that a believer would approach that which Allah Subhana which automates sacred meaning a believer would violate what Allah subhanaw taala commanded
them not to violate another Hadith is you know, the prophets lie salon that attack Giovanna believe it sir, are you amazed by the rerun? This protective honor of sides all the allowed time and the profit slice Allah said one Latina woman who will love the Euro Mini, he said, I have more Lita than sand, and Allah has more than me.
This is a very difficult concept to break down. It's this halaqa is not about Veera but Riera comes from a sense of protective I'm sorry, comes from a sense of righteous anger as well. Okay. Veera comes from a sense of righteous anger as well. So how do we merge this all together we can take from the first date that the prophets lysozyme is shown that is saying that the prophets lie some did get mad. He did get angry, but he didn't get angry over petty things or because he was offended some a lot horny he was he got mad for things that were worth getting mad about. Remember, be happy or hang Allah Tada. He comments on this hadith. And he says, if we were to say that all anger is bad, then
that leaves no room for zeal and Lila. It leaves no room for zeal and honor and again leaders are very hard, hard word to translate. So that those are positive qualities that comes from a sense of righteous anger. Okay. And in fact, remember no we're talking about I talked about this he said part of the human perfection is that we have the raw and lira comes from Tila Ural calm, a change of heart. You know, you We ask Allah to Allah that the most frequent they're out of the profits, and almost what most frequent they're out of the profits lesson was What does anyone know?
yamo callable kulu. Sub it's called Viana denecke Oh Turner of hearts make my heart firm on your path. Right. But here, it's a lie. You're a part of the heart changing. Okay. And he mama No, we don't have a whole lot to honor says that. When your heart moves when you feel emotion for things that you should feel emotion about? passion, courage, honor when your heart, you know, it's not a bad thing to be an emotional person. Okay, it's about how you deal with those emotions. But he said that if we did not have those emotions, then we're just like, you know, inanimate objects. It's part of our humanity that Allah subhanaw taala put these things inside of us. And as human beings, we are
not supposed to negate human emotions. We're supposed to channel them properly. Every human quality that Allah gave us. He gave it to us to channel it, not to negate it. Okay, shallow desire. Are we supposed to negate desire in Islam?
I'm actually very surprised that you guys have an answer to that question.
Are we supposed to negate desire? No, you're supposed to channel it properly. So anger as well is a human emotion. You are not supposed to negate it. You're supposed to channel it properly. That's why the nominal izadi Rahim Allah Azza wa subhana wa Tada. did not say welfare pleanala
Alonzo just said well Calvary mean life after the you know, a lot did not say those who don't have anger when describing the believers. Allah said those who
I'm sorry, last pelletize said, Those who swallow their anger, okay? Because when you swallow it, you swallow it because you're supposed to swallow it but you don't negate the emotion. The emotion is supposed to be there. Alright. So righteous anger is the quality of the believers. It is a quality of the messenger sallallahu wasallam. And lira is one of the one of the things that Allah subhana wa, tada attributes to himself. All right, we can't praise hubub anger,
you know, in isolation, okay, or in general because the prophets lie some of them. We know the very famous Hadith A man came to him and said, Oh, Sonny, give me advice, he said,
Do not become angry. And he said it three times Salalah it was sell him. So obviously hubbub, as you know, but in general is not a positive thing unless a person is able to channel it properly. Okay. Lila is to be angry over something that is worth to be angry from a sense of protection, out of a sense of protection. Okay, that is that is real. And the prophets lie Selim. Praise the person that has leaned on. And the prophets lie. Some of them,
you know, said that the one who doesn't have any sense of theater is disgraceful. So it's a positive quality for a person to have. Now where does that righteous anger starts? There, it might say it starts with anger against yourself, anger with yourself when you violate when you violate boundaries that Allah Subhana Allah commanded you not to violate, you know, everyone, always, you know, when when people start like getting like really mad, and they get into their enforcer mentality. They try to claim that they're being like all motivated all the time. But there is no person that are under the law and who used to get more matter than himself.
Right, he took himself to task bar more than he took any member of the oma to task. He chastised himself, he admonished himself. If he felt like he wronged someone, he didn't wait for someone to tell him you committed an injustice, or almost all the love and who we spoke about, not last week, but the week before last week, all not all the law, I don't have that quality, right. He was he wasn't just this, this person that was doing this with everyone else. He himself when he committed an act that he thought was not befitting. He became angry with himself, it'll be a lot of time. And that anger that almost showed with himself, kept him humble. Because if you if you're if you're only
doing that with other people, you'll be an arrogant person. But if you're always if you start off always by looking inward and taking yourself to task, then that keeps you in check, keeps you humble. So despite all the law and has strong firm personality, in setting things right amongst people in calling out injustice, and rectifying situations, as soon as he saw it, oh, my God, a lot of time and who did not think he was better than anybody else. So he never had that sense of arrogance or self righteousness, and almost all the time, was tougher on himself than he was on anyone else. So the first, the first form of anger is to be angry with oneself. If you find yourself
transgressing, either and this is you know, I'm starting off with the general concepts here. I haven't really brought it particularly to Virginia, to injustice yet, but we're talking about you know, when you commit a hot arm, are you as angry with yourself as you are with everybody else?
You know, some how to like you, you you have the right to just to call out other people and to chastise other people. Do you take yourself to account passible and full circle, cobbler and to hassle It was almost the other one who said hold yourself accountable before you are held accountable. The believer doesn't wait to be held accountable. The believer holds himself accountable. So when people are you know, especially in the online world, right? Just
that was my best whip sound right? But you know, angry and just chastising and admonishing and calling people out and whatever it is and hypocrisy and this. First you got to start with yourself. Do you take yourself to task
before you take other people to task? Right and that was the quality of our model the Allahu taala No, and there's a hadith where the Prophet sighs I mentioned Mama, are the allowed title.
Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam either somewhat has an article was an advocacy article.
If your good deeds make you happy
And your bad deeds make you sad, sad or angry, they make you upset, then that means you're a believer. So your emotions, you look at your own deeds. And that's how you really see your emotions, whether you're happy or whether you're going to be sad. So what is righteous anger? Right? This is where we start off. Now, the general concept that there is a concept that there is such thing as righteous anger. There are two things to keep in mind with this subject. There are two determining factors as to whether or not it's righteous anger. Number one is why you are angry.
Number two is how you show that anger. Why and how, why are you angry? And number two is how are you angry? Okay. And the two are often indicative of the other What does that mean? If in my anger, I violate the boundaries of Allah subhanho wa Taala I cannot claim that I'm angry for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
All right, because that the way that I'm showing that anger shows that it came from an ugly place. If it came from a place of beauty, it would manifest itself in a beautiful way. But if it manifests itself in an ugly way, that means its origin is ugly as well. So I can't come in and start screaming at people and cursing and and becoming foul. They said in the Toronto fashion, but they are the prophets. I said the believer is not someone who who, who curses and who uses foul language and who abuses people with their tongue and say, This is for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right. I can't claim that that's from a place of righteous anger. That's from knifes. That's from that's from
a place of ego. But I'm using perhaps I'm using a righteous cause.
to disguise my Neff See, my, my my egotistical rant.
All right. You know what they're called on? I heard this this term before. I don't remember what they're called outrage trolls. All right, online outrage, trolls. All right. So you take something that's a legitimate cause.
And you scream about it, not because you really care about the cause, but because you want to be screaming and you found the cause that justifies your screaming. And so it's laced with knifes. It's laced with ego and with yourself, but you are claiming to be doing it for a righteous reason. Very dangerous. And that's how shaitan tricks us. Right? That's how shaitan tricks us and deceives us, you might be arguing the right thing. But the way you're arguing it shows that you're not arguing it for the right reason. So you have to ask yourself, if the How is bad, maybe the Why is not as good as I thought it was. Maybe I need to review my intention. I need to go back to my intention. And
that's why the prophets lie Selim.
For example, in the how he described the hypocrites, what either ha summer.
When the hypocrite becomes when the hypocrite argues and with or when the hypocrite gets into it,
then he transgresses all bounds. That's a sign of hypocrisy. It doesn't matter what the argument was about. What matters is that the way that the hypocrite, the way that that person acted during that argument is a sign of the fact as a sign of hypocrisy. Some of the scholars, they tied that to the other,
you know, either either had difficulty when he speaks he lies are either worthy of love. When he makes a promise, he breaks his promise to me in a hunt. He's given a trust and he betrays that trust. Some of the scholars said, that is
what you either have some fudge up, that is transgressing the bounds in those things as well. So when he speaks, he lies. That's the transgression. When he makes a promise, he breaks a promise that's a transgression. When he's given a trust, he breaks that trust, or he violates the trust, that's a transgression. So the prophets lie some is describing to us unhealthy characteristics, unhealthy qualities, if that's how you're acting in your anger, don't claim it to be from Allah Subhana hota show me once we're all mortal, the Aloha town and after Islam
all right after Islam in his anger, because some people I mean, and I'll be very honest with you, some people even even make a mockery of our model deal outside like Yeah, he's always the one that's getting riled up and all of these you know, seal incidents and that's that's so
nice habit also less like someone's bad manners but the companions of the Prophet slicin Show me once we're on level the allow on who got up and started to, you know, break bottles on people's heads or, or start slapping people know he always as angry as he was as angry as he was. Did he ever transgress this big strong man, you know,
In the middle of his anger Did he just he could literally pick up a person just throw them across the room in the middle of his anger just pick someone up and throw them across the room or curse No. All right, no, he did not. And that's a sign of his sincerity. So, his anger always came from a beautiful place. It came from a place of being angry for the truth and he channeled it first within towards himself before channeling it towards others. So that how often tells about the why we look at the profit slice and um first and foremost as an example. So again, who narrated the Hadith in the very beginning?
Ah, Isha, only Allah. Are you sure has seen the profit slice along in all of his emotions.
Alright. I think that's special. She seen him sad. He's seen him happy. She's seen him angry. She's seen him, you know, relaxed, she's seen him anxious. She has seen the prophets lie some and all of his emotions. And the way she describes them it his salatu salam in all of those emotions is in perfection. Right that he mastered all of those emotions sallallahu alayhi wa sallam she saw the very human side those those those very raw moments of the messenger sallallahu wasallam and gives us insight into them. And the way she describes him it his slot was Salah, beautiful, beautiful description, right? it you know it makes you It makes you love him more. So for example, she
describes most of his angry situations in his personal life out of his slotless so let's look at you know, for example, I saw the law and the prophets lie Some are walking in the streets of Medina and some people say some icon
right, which means may death be upon you Assam instead of Salaam may death be upon you. And the prophets lie Selim says while econ and upon you composed, dignified, not not, you know riled up, just complete composure, unfazed eyeshadow, the allowances are alikum, Assam wallarah to La wallabee. And upon you His death and the curse of Allah and His wrath, the prophet slice Allah says, he saw the Allahu taala and you don't need to do that. He said, Did you hear what they said to you? He said, Did you hear what I said back? So in the law you humble in a lie you humble rifka Phil Emery Cooley our Isha Allah loves gentleness and all of his affairs. So it's okay. If they said
Salaam they got salam, if they said Sam, they got Sam. All right. Whatever they said they got alikum they got the same upon them. That's good enough. All right. You saw the love on her. When she describes the profit slice them in her house. And the profit slice I'm sitting with the Sahaba. And, you know, there's one of the wives of the Prophet size them sends a plate of food.
And it says house and it's the profit slice and gets it. It's right in between the Sahaba and it shall have the allow comes out she picks up the plate and she breaks it right in front of everybody.
That's pretty like, offensive.
You know, the prophets lie Selim in front of the companions. Really interesting here with the Prophet is not the Sahaba we're looking at the Prophet slicin like whoa, like, should we leave? This is really, this is really extreme. What are the prophets? Like some say? He smiled and he said,
Look, your mom got a little jealous. It came from a good place. So Pamela, he actually said it came from Lena, she got a little she got jealous. She had some Lita. He didn't, you know, all he did was he, he he, he told her he shall have to learn how to send the plate back
to her instead of you know, yelling at her and screaming at her and You embarrassed me and this and this and this and that because that would have been from ego, like you made me look bad. So I'm gonna have to make you look bad now in front of everybody. But so that you know, no one questions. You know, who's who's right, who's calling the shots in this household, right profit size and doesn't act like that's petty. That's petty. Instead of the profit slice. I'm diffuses the situation he recognizes that look, she got you know, there was some some some leader there got the best of her and she acted out not the best way. So just replace the dish. Okay? Now that's the profit slice. I'm
not getting, you know, showing just this exemplary composure, right? When did the Prophet sighs Don't get mad at you shall do a lot of time. When did he really really really get mad at her? When she said about a day when she heard the prophets lie some praising Khadija all the time, while the alarm and it shut off the alarm and I said, didn't Allah replace that old, toothless woman of grace with someone better than her? He should not be alone and her saying look, Allah gave you someone better than her digital the low and you got to stop mentioning her every single day.
And talking about her every day. That was the angriest she ever saw the profits.
Now if you think about it and the profits, she said that the profits license face turned red, his hair stood on his button like it was like, Oh my god, I really crossed the line here. What did he say? I swear by Allah that Allah did not give me better than her. She believed in me when others disbelieved in me. He considered me to be truthful and others belied me. She spent on me when others deprived me and I lost a parent. Allah blessed me with her children, and I lost parents. I did not bless me with anyone else's children. So a lot did not give me better than her. Beautiful he praised Khadija he didn't insult Isha or the lohana he was angry for
Allah and for Khadija de la Anna that that that's not fair to double the law and with all that she did for me. That's the angriest lauricella like he didn't and if you think about compare the two incidents here compared the incident of the dish,
and this incident with Khadija will be alone in the incident with the dish there are people around that's when you know if a person lets their ego that's when the next will really get the best of you like How dare you make me look bad in front of other people. This isn't the privacy of their home and I show the low and I was talking about a woman that passed away it'll be 11 the meaning of the Prophet sighs I'm didn't defend Khadija with the olana nothing's gonna happen there. In the case of the other incident, something you know there's a living woman and a living woman. The profit slice on him showed anger in the case of a digital The left one because it was an injustice. It was a
wrong It was an injustice in the profit slice I'm felt compelled
by that righteous anger to stand for Khadija de la Juana and mentioned the goodness that a digital the lavon did for him so Allah Allah he did the same thing with a bucket and Omar may Allah be pleased with them all model of the Allah on her only is number two he's only second to one person from the companions it's double Beckett will the allow one time I will Beckett and Omar may Allah be pleased with them. They got into an argument Amaro de la and who was upset he didn't you know and I went back and went to complain to the Prophet slice on them not to complain about Allah, but to ask the Prophet slicin What should I do because a homeowner is angry with me. When I went back and went
to the Prophet slice Allah Omar also went looking for trouble Beckett he found him with the prophets lies on the Prophet site some stood up and he was so angry, so angry with Ahmad Abu Bakr said jasola I was the one in that transgress meaning we had an argument and Omar did not forgive me and I was worried yada Silla It was me, not him. The Prophet slice I'm looking at the Allah Han. And he said, when I began calling people to Allah subhanho wa Taala. All of you, all of you initially gave me a hard time, except for a while back.
So will you leave my companion alone?
He stood up for a bachata they allowed Thailand in this situation? Like No, not here, someone can direct the brother in Charlottetown. Not here, not here. Not here, Oh, mama. in this situation. He's going to side with electricity for the love of Thailand. So it's important for us to understand the profit side seller, he knew when to do these things. He knows he knew when to show this.
This type of anger, we also see in the situation of more either Punjab or the Allahu taala. And the Hadith is narrated by Abu Dhabi, Allah who came to the prophet SAW some and complained that we are the Allahu anhu was taking too long in the recitation in the prayer. And so he he was he was complaining to the Prophet slice them that his slaughter Isha was too long. And he when he complained to him more and more, I would call them a hypocrite.
And when he came to the Prophet slice, and when that man came to the Prophet salon said, I never saw the prophets. I said, I'm so upset.
And he said, Oh, people in the minko monastery and there are those of you who run people away from the religion of Allah subhanaw taala people who deflate people who run people away some people fleeing from Allah. When you lead the prayer, you have old people and weak people, and you have people behind you that cannot take the long the long recitation of paternal anti Amara, are you going to be a pfitzner for the people more either you're going to be a tribulation for the people so Pamela prophet sighs I'm stood up for that man.
Right. He was upset about that. So Allah Hardy, he was Salah, we see in the prophets lie Selim with his enemies in the battlefield.
The same man, the same man, who when he was being struck, and his teeth were being knocked out in the battle or hurt the same, and what was he saying a lot more fully calm effect. Now.
Allah, Allah forgive my people, they don't know any better. The same man still allowed
the law and who says he saw a woman that was killed in the battlefield.
From the opposing side, an enemy combatants, you know, maybe she herself was fighting or she was accompanying the enemy, and the Prophet slicin and was so angry, demanding to know who killed this woman who killed this woman. This is the same man who was forgiving the people knocking out his teeth. Salalah Hardy was and you know, the examples go on and on the messenger, it is lots of stuff when he saw and we have a whole helicon animals, you know, the companions that took the eggs of a bird and the profits why someone's upset. You know, he felt like it was an injustice to that bird. When they took when they took the eggs of that mother profits lay some always always when you when
you study his anger it his slot was snap. It was never petty. It was never or an Indian. It was never for some personal grievance that he had sallallahu wasallam. Okay, it was usually because someone else was harmed. spiritually, physically, I mean, the most severe of the prophets lie some that I can think of against people in within the community. was when this man came to the Prophet slice Allah. And he wanted to ask the Prophet sighs I'm a question about although because he had wounds and he found the profit slice alone. He had to do horses, he had to, you know, he had to take a shower ritual. And the Prophet slicin was praying. So two companions jumped in. And they answered
the man's question instead of waiting for the prophets license. And the man ended up suffering because they didn't give him an easy option. He ended up passing away and the prophets license of Cthulhu cartella from Allah, they killed him, may Allah kill them severe because the prophets lie, some was angry for that man. It was an injustice that the prophets lie some saw. And the prophets lie salon was moved by that it is a sense of righteous anger. However, the messenger salallahu alayhi wasallam. And this is the why and the how No, he never threw a tantrum.
Okay. Meaning even in his anger, he was very composed, he was calculated, he knew what he was saying. Salalah already assylum knew what he was doing. He never lost his mind. And that's something that when you see someone snap, you don't see that, like the Prophet sighs I've never snapped on someone. So people have to carry him back to his house and say I'd also like calm down even for a righteous cause. Think about the Prophet slice them ever after he pulled off somebody, even though he dealt with the other the harm of the people and the things people said to him, and the things people did. Often sighs I've never had to be pulled back from somebody. Because even in his most
severe anger, he was composed, he was intentional about what he was saying and what he was doing. So it's shameful. When someone loses themselves to the point that someone else has to come, another person with their own force has to come and move the person away. Right, the prophet sighs I'm never even for a righteous cause. went that way. So he was angry for Allah. And he was angry in a manner that would be fit being angry for a loss of Hannah.
Okay, so it was why he was angry, how he was angry. And of course, this is something we find from all of the MBR all of the the prophets of Allah. You know, if you look at Allah, there has been a rustle, the greatest of the messengers of Allah. Look at most artists.
when Moosa came down and found his people worshipping the golden calf, what did he do? He broke the tablets, he grabbed out on it, he was angry. It wasn't because he was offended for himself. But you people just got delivered by Allah subhanho wa Taala just saved you and you're going to you're doing this now. It's anger for Allah, I'm bringing you tablets from I'm bringing you this, the scrolls from Allah subhanaw taala. And this is what you're doing. It was a righteous anger, as it is, you know, the prophet of animal Samaha forgiveness and mercy. The very famous scene of ERISA is set up. And there's, it's in the NFL and the narrations that we find as well within our own books that aisa
encountered, and we talked about top thief and we'll toss the theme, right remember we had a whole halycon motif in those who shortchange so the temple at the time, what did they used to do? You could only First of all, I have to be very careful not to get myself banned from a country.
But think about Hajj and think about some of the processes now that just keep robbing the people over and over again. So your sacrificial animal on these to bring the sacrifice for example to the temple it had to be certified by them. So you had the the the priests in the temple and you know, they had their own
Little their own guys in the market. So they certified certain animals. Okay, or sacrifice and it was based on some backdoor deal that that the priest in the temple had with this particular guy who sells, you know, that have fun or sells buck otter sells sheep or sells cows. And then you know, I'm gonna certify your animals, but you got to, you know, make sure you throw in 100 you know, something in my pocket, and then tell thief, they used to also they, you know, because they lived under Roman occupation. They used to only do their currency was Roman currency, but no, in the temple, it's got to be the, it's got to be the Hebrew currency. That'd be Roman currency. So you got to exchange you
got to do an exchange, and in that it always shortchange there was always taught faith in the currency exchange. Right? And just cheating the people over and over and over again, holding them hostage with these sacrifices. What did he say? He said, I'm doing he gotten the temple,
flip the tables, free the animals and he had a whip in his hands.
And he yelled at them
and chastise them. I mean, some people running from the temple right?
There is a throw a tantrum, it is not now, we would never say are you sorry, Sam knew exactly what he was doing. He knew exactly what he was doing. He didn't lose his mind or Isa was making a statement with what he was doing. And what did he say? I am Rahim Allah, those of you that take the seminary class mentioned the statement from from the middle column says that he says set to set to the rabbis of any swai the Pharisees Yeah. So Jonathan dunya Felker OC, common accurate attack to academic on polar calm, she thought, Well, I'm gonna come down to that, oh, evil scholars, you put the dunya on top of the world, the material world on top of your heads, and you have put the
hereafter under your feet. The words that you say may be a cure, but your actions are nothing but disease.
powerful words meaning call them hypocrites. You're abusing theology and he showed anger it has some anger because not only in some other element mentioned that the worst you know, the worst type of manipulation is manipulation using the deen of Allah to violate what Allah subhanaw taala made inviolable, using the deen of Allah subhana wa Tada. That's the worst violation. That angers that is the most deserving of righteous anger when people disguise injustice, with religious language. That's the worst type of justification. And that is the most deserving of a person to show
their righteous anger. I have too many examples. I'll go through them inshallah, tada just some of these things outside of the profits, the MBA, some of the things that we find from the companions, sometimes, within the same incident, you find that the companions were angry for just causes, even if they were on opposing ends of a discussion.
So righteous anger could even be showed sometimes and you know, there could be different perspectives. This is a hadith narrated in Sahih Muslim
that Salaam sohaib and Bilaal me may Allah be pleased with them all. So the man alafasy the Persian, so hey, roomie sohaib, the Roman villain Al habashi, beloved, Abyssinian all people who suffered immensely lived in slavery, and were empowered by Islam. Right. And they are walking by Abu sufian.
Right, Abu Sufyan, the noble man who accepted Islam, of course after fighting Mecca, but at this time after the conquest of Mecca at this time, he was not and when they walked by, they said to Abu Sufyan, these three men that were suddenly empowered by the religion, they said that by Allah the swords the swords of Allah did not reach the neck of the enemy of Allah.
Meaning You're lucky we didn't get you
there talking to others again like you You dodged one from these three men that were humiliated before Islam right these three men that were foreigners in this land and you dodged one like the swords of a lot did not meet the neck of the enemy of a lot. You're lucky we didn't get you this is before he became Muslim.
I went back to the San Diego to LA I know he saw that and he was afraid that this was that this would disturb the tree. Have they been?
sober, Beckett hold the alarm home. He admonished Milan salmaan and sohaib May Allah be pleased with them all? This is a really interesting incident. Okay. Then he felt bad about it. He didn't like it. So he was angry for the right reason like this is not worth disturbing the peace right? Or they be as a very sensitive treaty. It's not worth it just to say some words to us if you know even though it's a powerful incident, but it wasn't worth it.
was angry for the right reasons, but he felt bad like I just said that too. So hey darlin, man. So he went to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And he said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said to the Prophet sighs and when he did, and the prophets license said, yeah,
that I like a walk to home.
In Quinta have bought a home or a buck. Powerful, and oh, our back. It might be that you made them angry. And if you made them angry, then you would have made a lot angry as well.
backup of the alohar what just happened, remember? But hey here, it may be that you may know the Prophet slicin did not toggle back and hold the alarm and he was wrong. He just said, Look, the Lancer hates a man. I mean, these are the best of the companions. You can't you shouldn't have done that with them. And if you made them angry, then you may have made a lot angry as well. So what a double vechicle deal on hoodoo. He rushed back to them begging them for forgiveness. I said Nah, Rebecca No, no, I will Beckett love for Allah. May Allah forgive you don't worry about it. We understand. This incident is beautiful, because I mean, there are many things we can draw from this
honestly could be it could be a class in and of itself. But the the anger of Beckett was praiseworthy, and the anger of Milan so haven salmaan towards oblivion was also praiseworthy. They both showed some emotion and some anger here, but they never transgressed.
Okay, they both were very impassioned, as a group and as an individual, about what they said.
But they never transgressed. I mean, it's not like some man so haven Bilal snuck, you know, Abu Sufyan put them in a sleeper hold and punch them a few times, and then said, If you tell anyone like, Hey, we're still composed. They didn't curse him. But, you know, they gave him a few words. For the right. They were showing them they were showing him there is of Islam, the honor of Islam. Of course, I was a fan became Muslim. And that's the beautiful part of this is that they ended up praying next to each other at some point, right. I went back in with the Lord. And also it's not like he was angry because his Arab brother, and this is how you disguise right? Sometimes you have,
you know, I Wilbekin will be allowed to add on who was not angry because this was his brother, his Arab brother, and he was insulted by non Arab brothers, you know, and fits in and breaks out sometimes. And it's racial, if you don't want to say it's racial.
So you use another cause so that you don't say it's a it's uh, you know, it used to be Arab DC, but now it's like intra DC.
You know, the the Indians and the Pakistanis, the the Palestinians and the Egyptians, like everyone have had a lot like, you don't want to say it's race, but it is race. I will record all the law and we didn't have an ounce of that. Well, Micah was worried about the tree. So he was angry for the right reasons. He admonished them for the right reason, but it's not like he insulted them or cursed them. So this is that they showed a righteous sense of anger, a praiseworthy sense of anger in the situation, three things inshallah time that'll end number one that they're out of the prophets lie Selim.
He used to ask Allah and this is a beautiful graph, on a llama in America, heavy metal Happy Family Law, it will hold up
Allahumma inni. Elegant, heavy metal, Huck the river. Well, hello, oh ally, asked you
for the ability to speak the truth.
And I'm pleased and when I'm angry,
that what comes out of my mouth, will be getting me to help will be a word of truth, no matter what my state of emotion is,
as at the end of the data. Alright, so this is the app that we make, which shows sometimes, we're going to be angry for the right reasons. And we should try to make sure that we are angry for the right reasons our intentions are right and that it manifests itself in a way that's pleasing to Allah.
Secondly, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said, this is a hadith from Abu Bakr ah
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, like the unhackme on vainness naini wa who was one, let not one of you make a judgment between two people when he's in a state of anger.
So try not to do things in your state of anger. That will sway things in a way that's not the right way.
So a judge should dismiss himself and or take time to really analyze things, as opposed to saying something or doing something in a state of anger. The last thing I'll mention, and this is back to the beautiful character of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. The poem that one of the companions who came
And we'll put in the year of the delegation. He said about the profit slice I'm just observing the way the profits Isom carried himself kind of the height of the hilman either lamea can know who the where the returning software who and you can draw.
