00:00:00--> 00:00:17

Dear brothers and sisters, I wanted to begin this whole tuba by an overview of a stark contrast between the crying of chiffon and the crying of Adam. It is Scylla. And it's very interesting because if you think about it,

00:00:18--> 00:00:59

the idea of shaytaan crying in and of itself, might shock some people. Isn't he a creature that has no remorse for what he has done? And so a person might even wonder, Is that even possible for the Shavon to cry and what would cause him to cry? And with Adam Alayhis Salam what is it that causes Adam it is salaam to cry after Allah subhana wa Tada has forgiven him and already guaranteed him Jenna and told him that he has risen above that one slip that he caught that he made that caused him to leave paradise in the first place. So why is it that Shavon would cry when shaytaan is a being of no remorse? And why is it that Adam and his Salam would cry if Adam Alayhis Salam has already been

00:00:59--> 00:01:47

forgiven, and assured paradise for himself. And ultimately, as we survey these narrations, the question that I want to come to is what makes us cry? And where do i Where do we find our own resemblance in regards to the tears of these two creatures that are on opposing ends? And so you start off with a bliss Shavon. The prophets lie some said in a famous Hadith in Sahih Muslim that every time the Shavon sees the son of Adam making sujood prostrating era Tesla, yep, key. He goes to a corner and he cries the Accord O'Meara he says he was commanded to make Sudduth be scheduled for surgery. And he responded, Well omitted to foul slate, oh, what a bait. In another narration. He was

00:01:47--> 00:02:32

commanded. And he responded, and I was commended. And I rejected. And so if you read the narration there and you ask yourself, what is this the immersive shape on that? He's saying that this person was commanded by Allah subhanaw taala to prostrate, and they responded, and I rejected Allah subhanaw taala what an evil creature I was, or I am to continue to insist on this way. Is this a form of regrets because the prophets lie some another Matoba sincere regret is repentance. It's the beginning of repentance, it is the foundation of what repentance actually is. So is this because of that? Or is this something else And subhanAllah there is another narration, as we often find, that

00:02:32--> 00:03:18

gives a little bit more detail that makes it obvious as to why he was crying, or why he cries when he sees one of us obey Allah subhanaw taala and Ebihara talathi Allahu Taala annual kala kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam operator narrates an authentic narration of Nomada that the Prophet SAW Selim said either guadagno Adam, as such that when the child of Adam reads A such that meaning they read a verse of prostration that causes them to prostrate for Sajida and then they make their such that they prostrate they respond to the call to bow and worship Allah subhanho wa Tada era Tesla Shavon Oh, yep, key cool. Yahweh LA who O'Meara dama be sujood for such a fella halogen

00:03:18--> 00:03:42

were omitted to be scheduled for abate. Funnily enough. It's only a simple addition but it gives you so much context that the prophets lie Selim says that when he sees you make sujood he says, Woe to Woe to me. Yeah, whaler, Woe to me, the son of Adam was commanded to prostrate and he responded, fella who agenda and so he gets Genda.

00:03:44--> 00:03:51

And I was commanded to prostrate and I refused. So I get the punishment of the fire.

00:03:52--> 00:04:29

There's something very telling about that. That Shavon is not doing anything to show remorse for his own deeds. He's upset that he's left out. He's crying not over the crime, but over the consequences of the crime that are self inflicted. And these are the tears of a narcissist. a narcissist, cries as well. But a narcissist does not cry, because of the hurt that they caused to others, or because of any type of regret for their deeds. They cried because they are always the victim of their own stories, even when they are the criminals and their own stories.

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

And so he's crying because he lost Genda not because he disobeyed a Lord who should not be disobeyed. A merciful Lord, who did absolutely nothing to be disobeyed. Yeah, but Tila terrible just shape on in the shape on a Canada Rukmani asleep. When I brought him I spoke to his father and he said, Oh my father, do not dis obey do not do not worship. The shape on barely the shape on was to a merciful

00:05:00--> 00:05:19

Lord exceedingly disobedience. Allah subhana wa Tada did not give him anything for him to truly disobeyed Him the way that he did, but he's crying over missing out on agenda. What are some of the other narrations about his tears about his actual crying about right all the time who narrates that Shavon cried at the revelation of certain fatty?

00:05:21--> 00:06:02

Why? Because no one who asks ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada for guidance 17 times a day will be misguided. No one who asks Allah subhanaw taala for his pleasure 17 times a day sincerely will attain his wrath instead. And he knows that and it bothers him that the Muslims have this tool that they attain the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala with on a regular basis, a Muslim who memorizes nothing else of the Quran no through a third party. And so if you recite that with sincerity, that is your connection to Allah subhanaw taala. And then there is a chapter in the books of Tafseer called Hanaa, Becca bliss

00:06:03--> 00:06:47

or the AYA, the time that bliss cried or the idea that caused a bliss to cry, and it's based on a narration from Anna cinematical the altara annual inhabited punani or the Alta and that when Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the verse in Surah Al e Imran will Levina either Farah Luthor he certain ovalo Mo and Fusa home zakat Allah a stuff for only Ruby him women your fields little bit in Allah well Amule Saru Lu Wilhemina Allah moon that Allah subhanaw taala revealed in verse insert adding Iran and those who when they commit a sin or an injustice against themselves, a fat Isha, oh, voila, and Fusa how are they wrong themselves? They remember Allah. That's the difference between sincere

00:06:47--> 00:07:18

repentance and regret. Okay, they remember ALLAH Yeah, Allah. I disobeyed ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, what right? Did I have to disobey Allah? Who is Allah to be disobeyed by me His creation, that God Allah festa thoroughly don't obey him before someone else made them ashamed of their sin, or before someone else reminded them or before they face the consequences of their sin. And that's why in Islam, even in the legal sense, if a person regrets before they are caught,

00:07:20--> 00:07:35

and they have repented before they are caught than they are to be forgiven, right? So they remember ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and they seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho to Allah, when a year for the Nova Illa Allah and who's going to forgive them except Allah Subhana Allah to Allah when I'm in Cebu, and

00:07:36--> 00:07:57

they don't insist on their ways knowingly, the opposite of shape on who continues to go down a path that he knows is the path of destruction, and take as many people with him, which is also how some people start to spiral, right, they know they're doing wrong, but I'm just going to keep on going and I'll bring some people with me on this path of despair so that I'm not lonely in my destruction

00:07:58--> 00:08:42

and so on. So the Allah has had gone home and tablets narrate all the Allah I know that this was the verse that caused the bliss to cry. This was the verse that caused the bliss to cry. Why? And that's where you find another narration that explains it. And this narration is a narration from one of the tambourine. The Prophet Muhammad who says Bella, honey Anna, who, lemma Naza he said that it was related that when this verse was revealed, saw, at least a big annuity, bliss shouted out when this verse was revealed, and he actually started to put out a lot say he tore up heterodoxy to rob, he started to put dirt on his head, meaning he was so frustrated by this verse, when it was revealed

00:08:42--> 00:08:58

Hatha to Judah until his soldiers all came to him. And they said, my look as he didn't, what is it? Oh, our Master what's causing you to scream and shout and cry? Why are you panicking, the way that you are panicking. And he's saying that Allah has revealed the verse

00:08:59--> 00:09:39

that the child of Adam no longer has to fear so long as they repent to Allah subhanaw taala they no longer have to fear their sins, so long as they repent to Allah subhanho wa taala. And so he was upset. I mean, this really ruins much of his plotting in his planning. And so, his denude his soldier said to him, nuff, definitely above and we will open for them the doors of innovations and desirous ways of thinking wishful thinking failure to warn our stuff Iran, they will not seek forgiveness from you and they will not repent. What are your own and what are your own Illa Hamada and they won't think except that they're doing good. We'll help you in a bit Camilla Serena Anna

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

Lena Baba sorry, Humphrey. Hayato dunya homea Simona and you're seeing what Asuna Allah says, The losers are those who think they're doing good, but they're really doing evil. So we'll decorate practices so that they don't even realize that they're sinning because then they won't seek forgiveness from Allah subhana wa Tada who would otherwise forgive them. So again, what is he crying over?

00:10:00--> 00:10:14

He's crying over the destruction of his plans. He's crying over his own loss. Now let's contrast that for a moment. To Adam alayhis salaam Imani is set up, who has already been guaranteed his place back in Jannah.

00:10:16--> 00:10:36

Think about that. Now, by the way, the narration is in the books of Tafseer say that Adam it has said I'm cried for 200 years over his sin. What can I do? How do I act? The way of the believer is indeed to cry over there since he cried for 200 years over his sins. He regretted deeply what he did even after a loss of hundreds hours forgiveness was a short for him.

00:10:37--> 00:11:20

But now the mighty has Salam as he sent to this earth all he has to worry about is what I'm only here for a short while then I go back to Jenna, if Adam it has set up was like a bliss. I'm good. I'm going right back to where I came from. I don't really have to worry about anything else right. looked at what the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said when he met them at his salon for them alone. A sunnah dunya for either Raja Luna and Yamini he a sweeter one year sorry, he asked sweda Carla for another, either Nevada Kybella Yamini botica were either noble Kibera Chemin de Baca, Prophet slicin said I saw this man on the night of an assault when Matt Raj, when you read it, his Salam ascended

00:11:20--> 00:11:58

with me. And he had this large group of people that were going to his rights. And he had this large group of people that were going to his left. And when he looked to his right, and he saw that large group of people, Blaker, he laughed out of joy. And when he looked to his left and he saw this large group of people that were going to his left Becca, he cried out of sadness, put it to ya Gibreel Madhava I said Gibreel Who is this man kind of had Adams Allah Who it he was selling them? He says, This is Adam Subbu lahardee He was selling them. Well, how do you heal Esqueda? And yeah, I mean, he were actually Malli he, NASA mubeen he he, he said on these people on his right and his left are his

00:11:58--> 00:12:14

descendants. But actually I mean an agenda. The people on the right are the people of paradise. And the people on the left are not are the people of fire. So when he looks to his right, he laughs out of joy for his children. And when he looks to his left, he cries out of sadness for his children.

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

The crying of an empath

00:12:18--> 00:12:57

Adam Alayhis Salam teaches us a different type of crank. You know to do data is also from empathy that you want good for people and their accurate or just like you want good for them in this dunya from the same place. You want them success and salvation in the hereafter just like you want it for yourself. The same way that in this dunya you serve people and you give to people because you want for them what you want for yourself in this dunya that's the spirit of Darla and so Adam it his Salaam is teaching us the tears of a prophet. And the greatest manifestation of that is the way of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the authentic narration of Abdullah Mohammed or the

00:12:57--> 00:13:20

Allahu Taala and Hoonah that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was once crying he read the idea where Allah subhana wa Tada says lobby in the Hoonah Allah Kathira meanness them until the Geneva in the Khomeini woman or assignee until the end of the if in the cantle as easily Hakeem that Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about the dua of Ibrahim alayhis salam

00:13:21--> 00:13:41

where Ibrahima Islam is complaining about some of his children, some of his descendants, that goes straight, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam raised his hands to the sky called Allah Allah Almighty Almighty Rebecca sallallahu alayhi wa salam, O Allah, my own my own and he started to cry sal Allahu Allahu Allah.

00:13:42--> 00:13:57

So Allah subhana wa Tada says, Yeah, Gibreel below Muhammad. What aboukir Arnhem? Oh Gibreel go to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and your Lord knows best for Salihu Now you keep asking what's causing you to cry or Muhammad Sallallahu It was similar.

00:13:58--> 00:14:38

For utter who Jublia it his Salatu was Salam for ser Allahu Akbar who Rasulullah sallallahu he was seven would be my God. So he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the prophets I said I'm said Almighty Almighty my ummah, my mama, for God, Allah Yeah, Gibreel Allah Subhana Allah says, oh, Djibouti and inhabitat Mohammed go back to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam for Kula who in Sonora de Taffy O Matic Well, Anna su oak. Oh Mohamed, we will please you with your mama, we will not disappoint you. We will please you with your mama. We will not disappoint you. That was the crying of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And that's why his one year out on the Day of Judgment is

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

a day of intercession for other than himself. It is the epitome of what a prophet cries for And subhanAllah there in the mount point to the fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if you look at his crying when he was rejected by his uncle Abu Lahab compared to his crying when he was trying to prompt his uncle or Bhopal, have to say

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

La Ilaha illa Allah, the Buka The crying of the Prophet sly Sanlam with trying to save his uncle Abu Talib was far greater than any crying when his uncle Abu Lahab was humiliating him and harassing him.

00:15:13--> 00:15:53

So brings us to a question. Do you cry like an empath? Or do you cry like a narcissist? Do you cry like a worshiper? Or do you cry like a devil? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who cried over the harm that was being inflicted on other than himself more than the harm that was being inflicted on him. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam, who cried for the salvation of the same people that were causing him suffering in this world? That's our Prophet salallahu it who was send them, their brothers and sisters, we examine our hearts because now is a time where people express vulnerability and vulnerability in and of itself is good. It's good to be vulnerable. But if some people express

00:15:53--> 00:16:02

vulnerability only as a means of gaining sympathy so that they can escape accountability for their deeds and the consequences of their deeds, that's not positive.

00:16:03--> 00:16:47

What makes you cry? What gives you him? What gives you anxiety? What causes you to grieve? Think about it. And it's not something that you can answer to me, it's something between you and Allah subhana Hutan. And if someone says, Well, I don't cry at all. Then soften your heart with the two things that are the opposite of what bliss brings, and that is the recitation of the Quran from Sahara razza, the A team and the Prophet slice I'm saying to accompany the orphans to accompany and engage with the people that are suffering. The remembrance of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada Victrola the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala in private moments of solitude, where you cry at the remembrance

00:16:47--> 00:16:51

of Allah subhanaw taala and the recitation of the greatest reminder which is the Quran

00:16:52--> 00:16:54

and then for other than yourself,

00:16:56--> 00:17:38

whether it's the Oilers or our brothers and sisters in Palestine or wherever it may be, you cry, you actually bring yourself to cry and make your act for people. Soften your heart panela are we so hard with our hearts that we can cry watching a movie about fictional characters, but we can't cry watching the real life suffering of our brothers and sisters. That's a problem. Soften the heart with the recitation of the Quran. Take moments of solitude. Don't turn stuff off, know and cry like a prophet, not like a devil. Don't be someone that grieves only when they lose out, but grieve for what others are missing as well. And let that drive your data. Let that drive your spirit let that

00:17:38--> 00:17:56

drive your worship May Allah subhanaw taala grant us those hearts and those eyes and nose supplications We seek refuge in Allah subhanaw taala from eyes that don't shed tears from hearts that are not moved and from supplications that are not answered a hula Holyhead that was talking about you will actually start in Muslim infested we don't know who before why.
