Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah ala alihi wa sahbihi hamano Allah.
The fifth reason why we should not judge others is because we don't know their intention. We don't know why they were doing certain acts or indeed why they were saying certain things and what is the reason behind them saying or doing this? And the famous Huggies, which is almost a landmark in this whole matter, is the hadith of Osama moseyed, who is very beloved to the Prophet sallallahu is now he says in the Hadith, which is narrated by both Imam Bukhari and Muslim that the prophets I send them sent them on an expedition. And they managed to startle the enemy, and they co op with them. And he said, me and another one of the unsolved we caught up to a man, and we were about to kill
him. But then he said, that either hiding the law, Mohammed, the law school law, so he basically, analysis Islam, now that all Saudi, who was with Osama he stopped, he didn't do anything, he left him alone. Whereas Osama went ahead and killed him with his spear. Now, when they got back to the prophet SAW, I said lamb, and they told him the story, the prophets I sound was disappointed. And he said, yo sama Patel to Hobart and Paola, did you kill him off.
And the Prophet kept on repeating that,
which was a sign of his disappointment. And Osama was saying, he did it because he was trying to protect himself from being killed. And he said it because he didn't want to be killed. So sama made thought or actually, you know, he assumed that was the intention of the person accepting Islam, the prophet said, did you? Did you open up his heart and see that that was his intention. And obviously, he couldn't, and he didn't. So the prophets I said, lamb admonished to Salah for such an act. And Osama felt so bad, they said, I wish I hadn't become a Muslim up to that point. Because when you become a Muslim, all your previous actions are, are, are forgiven. So that Hadees shows that, you
know, even though outwardly you can look enormous imagine this outwardly, this guy seemed like he was just saying it because he was just about to be killed, he didn't want to be to die.
But then the process and I'm reinforces the message here that we don't know what's in his heart, you don't know what's in his heart. So you can't judge him based on what you've seen, because you don't know his intention. And similar things happen with other, you know, other aspects in our lives where we can see that people might, you know, say things and do things that we don't know why they are saying, Oh, we don't consider you know, somebody, you know, a long time now we have these charity fundraisers, these open events where people are invited to give charity to give. If you serve, you learn and you know, you might get somebody who's invited, you get somebody stands up, and he says,
You know, I pledge 10,000 pounds, you know, such a high pledge and so on. Now, some people might, automatically while he's only doing that to show off, you know, he's showing off, he's got money, and he can pledge so much. But really, how do you know his intention? His intention might be that he wants to encourage others to give good he maybe his intention is to show that you know, 10,000 pounds isn't actually a large amount we can all do it, we can all play with this money, could be lots of intelligence. So don't judge people, when you don't know their intention and their reasoning. And also, you don't know why, you know, what was the context and the reasoning behind
what they're saying? Yeah. And it also goes back to intention. There was a man who once said,
You he said I, I have sailed, usually hear some metaphors. I have sailed oceans, which the prophets are standing on their shores. I have sailed oceans, which the prophets are standing on the shores, meaning the profits hadn't even sailed these oceans now somebody's looking at that and judging at face value, what's this guy talking about? What How arrogant. Is he saying that he's gone. He's gone far.
into areas where even profits have not dared to venture. So somebody's looking at from that perspective to say that he's this guy's arrogant he or con. But actually when we, you know, we probe a little bit of the reasoning behind it. He was actually he was saying is he saying that he's I've entered into matters, which were very risky, very dangerous. The wise people I, the prophets who had intellects over, they didn't venture into these areas, they they kept away from them. So actually, he was saying that how dumb he was or foolish to enter into matters where it would be better for him, just to stay clear of them. See how so you know, it's almost like an extremes, isn't it? One is
saying that he's arrogant. And the other one is saying that he's useful to us because we don't know people continue. So be careful when you judge people that you don't know their intentions and only a loss paranoids Allah knows that ceremony.
