Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
That humbly lie to me.
Sort out was Salam on se the Marcelino have been in the beam
from Eduardo Leakey moussaka here to my aim.
My biographer was with him in a shade on a routine Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Allah whom Allah kata who is Soluna
Johan Lilina Valley he was so little sleep
last Sunday and so you're going to be at a meeting you wanna he also Linsley
last panel who would rather
has commanded us
to be aware of and to abstain from all sins both external as well as
in a verse of the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says all in Namaha Rama or bill for ye Shama Romina.
Say, My Lord has only forbidden
the indecent sin
mahavihara, minha, Omar button, those that are apparent there have and those that are hidden.
And one of the meanings of those that are hidden is Internal.
are just as destructive, poisonous
and sinful, as external acts of disobedience, if not more.
In fact, many of the internal sins
are far more
disruptive and insidious
than the external sins.
people balk at the idea of gambling,
committing fornication and adultery, because there are many steps to all of the sins and sometimes even if the desire is there,
to reach that sin,
prevent a person from committing.
But internal sins
are persistent. They're always there.
And it can only be a thought or a feeling which person then allows to linger.
So this is why internal sins the sins of the heart, the diseases of the heart, are far more surreptitious, insidious, and possibly even more destructive.
One of these deadly and dangerous Sins
of the interior of the bargain
of the hearts and mind is envy has
last panel with either as wound as in the Quran Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has warned as extensively in the Hadith about the danger of the sin of hesed envy, the harm it causes both to oneself as well as others.
Our deen is not just made up of external acts of obedience.
purification and the cleansing of the heart is vital.
Otherwise we will be hollow
last panel with the other
does not look just at how exterior praying Salah Givens aka performing good deeds is all very well and good.
But these good deeds may be destroyed
ROI by sin specially in innocence
and that's exactly what the prophets Allah love it was for them actually says of envy
in one Hadith it's all the loss of the love it was seldom says
in the HESA yet golden Hasina.
Them market that color natural health of Okada Lorsch.
Mama Budo de la Healy relates this hadith Carrera de la one of its Silla love, it was seldom said
consumes good deeds
just as fire consumes wood, or dry grass.
And in another Hadith later Imam, Imam of Buddha within a sunnah from Anna cinematical, the law one sort of law so the law my legal system said in the hustler in the case of the youth fee neuron has an
envy extinguishes, Smothers, and actually extinguishes the light the mood of good deeds.
we may be performing many good deeds externally, Salah Zakka hedge some.
But the diseases of the heart
can actually go a long way to wipe out those good deeds.
Remove them altogether. And this is why that that parable given in the hadith of
envy, consuming good deeds, like fire consumes wood.
It doesn't take long
for the fire to ignite
and then destroy everything in its path.
A few centuries ago, we had the Great Fire of London
which destroyed the great part of the city, many lives were lost, many buildings were destroyed.
And it all started from one fire
in a baker's.
And not just a few centuries ago even now.
In fact, if you consider the words of the Hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, in in the HESA, the yet golden Hassan ad comma coluna will help other large
indeed envy. Devour devours, its eater it eats up.
It devours good deeds just as fire consumes and devours wood
or dry grass. Now, if you mentioned dry grass
that burns and ignites quicker,
more rapidly and more ferociously than even wood. This is why not just a few centuries ago, speaking about the Great Fire of London, but even now, all across the world, we hear news all the time, from huge wildfires burning and raging out of control, destroying lives, livelihoods, livestock land.
In many continents, South America, North America, Africa, Australia.
It picks up these huge savannas and lots of grassland. We're not just talking about a few square miles hundreds of square miles if not 1000s.
Now if you imagine such a raging infernos fire is destroying everything in their path. This is precisely the parable. The example Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has given
in fact the beginning of the hadith is Yup and what hesed for Inilah hustler yet Gordon has an ad beware of envy. Be wary of envy, fear, envy. hassad for Hassard
consumes good deeds devours good deeds that means we may have many good deeds. Salah has aka Hodge Siyam Byam
and we labor under the assumption and the misunderstanding that that's like an account, it's set. Once you deposit the money in the account, it's safe, nothing can touch it.
So we perform Salah, the reward of that Salah isn't Allah's bank isn't Allah's account our
count in a large bank, it's reserved it's set, it's safe, nothing can touch it. It will never diminish, never be reduced. Now
last parameter Allah gives a very beautiful example in the Quran. Yeah you 100 ina Amanullah to close the car to crumble manual other good kill the unit commander Korea and US what our human Avila Will Young will hear from a fellow who command Phyllis off one in LA he Turabian for Osama Hua between Fatah Raka, who sounds like they don't shame massive losses all believers do not destroy your charities.
like one who spends his wealth merely show people and he does not truly believe in Allah and in the final day.
So Allah says, Don't destroy your good deeds don't destroy your sadaqa your charity. Now how is that possible? If we've given something in charity, the good deed is done, it's gone. It's passed.
Does that mean that that is reserved in our account with Allah and nothing can touch it? No. Every single good deed of ours still remains in fine balance.
Waiting to be
verified, ratified or actually destroy.
Nothing is set.
Allah subhanho wa taala. Anna then gives the example of how a person's good deeds are from a fellow who come and Phyllis off one ally to rob for Osama who were bill for Turaco Salda.
Allah says his example his parable,
his likeness is that of a smooth rock. Soft one means a very smooth rock.
So Allah says his example is like a smooth rock.
On that smooth rock is soil.
Dust, not throb, mainly refers to the dry destined soil in Arabia. Not terrible wet, clay like soil here.
So on that smooth Boulder is
Now imagine a smooth boulder with dust dry soil on top
isn't set in stone now.
It's in a very precarious position. A slight gust of wind, some movement and the soil falls off the desk drops.
Then Allah says
a rock on which there is soil dust.
And upon that dust, rainfalls heavy rain, wow Bill means a torrent of rain for the Rukka whose son
what happens? That rain leaves the rock? They're totally better.
So how are we to understand this example hola than Enza verse with the word lie if they don't Allah shaped him in Makkah Cebu they will have no power over anything that they have earned. It's very simple. The rock is the book of deeds, our account with Allah. That soil is that person's charity.
Which he gave, it's not set in stone. It's not deposited in the person's account with Allah. No, it rests precariously on a person's book of deeds. Now, after that good deed for the rest of his life. Many things can happen. There are many contingents, many things can happen.
And he will then either verify and ratify this good deed and continue to secure it, or he will actually do things or end up doing something which removes this good deed from his account wipes it from his account destroys it.
So, the rock is the account of good deeds a book of good deeds, the dry dust resting precariously on the book of deeds or on the rock is
charity or any good deed wire bill.
That torrent of rain is either boastfulness as Allah mentioned earlier on hurting someone because of one's charity using
Once charity is leverage or doing anything,
which ultimately destroys the sincerity of that good deed,
and that good that Ill deed will totally remove the good deed from a person's account until a person's book of deeds and account is bear like that bear rock, smooth barrack. So, in this hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Beware of envy for envy, consumes, eats up devours good deeds just like fire consumes wood or dry grass. And in the other athletes Bible, though, sort of LaSalle Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, in the house of the youth fee Nurul Hasan. And indeed, envy extinguishes the light of good deeds. So
we have to be extremely fearful of envy.
And the truth is, envy, we every one of us is guilty of envy, every one of us is an envy, and every one of us is
no one can deny that they are guilty of envy. In Arabic, the envy that I'm speaking of is known as hesed. Just as Allah says in surah, to fill up, woman shovel he has said in either acid.
the ENV I'm speaking of is acid.
And in Arabic, a body
is known as just that.
So the Arabs have a saying, Leia, lucidum, and hesed that no just said is empty of hesed.
Every body, every physical body has acid in it. Now if you just said the man has now just said is empty of acid.
Every single one of us is guilty of envy.
every single one of us to some degree is a victim of envy.
We envy others and others envious, that's a fact. And the is inners it's an every one and it's everywhere.
And it's destructive. This is why Allah subhanahu wa the Allah
has warned us against the sin of NBI being guilty of envy. And Allah has also shown us how to seek protection from the ill of envy. So in sorbitol, Philip he teaches as well are with a bit of bit of filler say, I seek refuge in The Lord of the daybreak
and shall we malerkotla from the evil of what he has created, Amin Shangri La sipping either woke up, and from the evil of the night, when it settles, I in its complete darkness,
or mean surely has been either hassad and from the evil of the envy or when he envious
because envy is destructive. It can destroy others. But before it destroys others and more than it destroys others it destroys a person himself.
It really does. Envy is harmful without that.
cause problems and hurts for our father Adam Alayhis Salam
is what killed
his son, hobby
and the hands of his own brother Bobby.
is what is what led
to many of the profits but he was set out to a salon being rejected by their own people.
is what caused
the blood brothers of use of Alayhis Salam, the sons of a prophet of Allah and the grandchildren of a profitable
and the great grandchildren
of a profitable they were the sons of Yaqoob Alayhis Salam, a prophet, the grandsons of his heart better he's Sudan, a prophet, and the grandson, the great grandsons of Ibrahim alayhis salam,
a prophet, such a noble and blessed family. You
It MV led them and incited them to plotting against their own two blood brothers, including use of alayhis salaam, initially plotting to kill him.
They wanted to kill
up to use of her with Rahu.
Of the yellow locker module, a vehicle
that killed use of white leaves fling him in a land,
a distant land.
Eventually they threw him into the well. And much of the story of use of Alayhis Salam came about as a result of the envy of his own blood brothers. Envy is what led to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam being opposed in muckety muck aroma.
Envy was also one of the reasons why they're some of the leading hypocrites rallied against prophets of Allah hidey.
has caused problems. Even for the Gambia it was Sudan the profitable
so no one is immune from the
evil of envy ie becoming the victim of envy. In fact, in a hadith related by Omar Abdullah Jabba the Allah and recorded by Manta Bharani in a number of his books are sold allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam actually says, For in the cooler the net and Mithi MASL for indeed every person of blessing. Anyone who has been blessed
is envy for in McCullough the nothing muscled indeed every person with a blessing is a Massoud meaning others nvn.
These are the words of the prophets, Allah Haile was on them. And every one of us has been gifted something by Allah, we are all blessed to some degree.
So we ought to be fearful of the victory of becoming the victim of envy. But before that, we can't be so selfish and arrogant, and egocentric, and so self obsessed and absorbed that we think, Oh, I'm so grand and great, everyone envies me. Yes, we can be envied but to varying degrees. But before we think about others envying errs, we actually need to think about our sin and our guilt of envy.
Like you just said, on antacid. Notice that this empty of hazards every one of us has hazard in.
And before I continue, I'd just like to clarify what exactly are we talking about when we say envy or jealousy?
In Arabic, in English, we normally say jealousy, and envy, and we use both of them interchangeably and synonymously. So
he is jealous of him, she is jealous of her. You are jealous of me. We we normally say that. But strictly speaking,
although it's not incorrect, to use jealousy synonymously within the
technically and strictly speaking, they refer to different things. And it's important to know this distinction specially in the discussion of the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam. So in English, we normally just say two things, jealousy and envy. Now, strictly speaking, envy is a pithy way of saying it is that envy is when you get worked up and angry and passionate about what someone else possesses. And jealousy is when you are passionate about what you possess.
So a husband
or a wife, a spouse is jealous, ie protective and possessive of his or her spouse. And that's jealousy. That's proper jealousy. That's the real and original meaning of jealousy, that should have been confused with envy. So a spouse will get worked up, angry and passionate,
not because of what someone else has, but because of what they have. So they are passionate about what they possess. They are possessive of it protective of it. A spouse is possessive and protective.
And jealous of the or for the spat.
Envy is when a person doesn't have something or maybe has it it does
Don't matter, a person becomes worked up and very passionate about what someone else possesses.
So someone else has a good car good house, wealth, qualification degree job career looks close, it doesn't matter.
When a person gets worked up,
angry, annoyed, and passionate about what someone else has, that's envy, that's a proper meaning of envy. So this meaning of envy in the English language when a person is passionate about what someone else possesses. In Arabic, this is the meaning of hassad This is a hassad we speaking of now,
I when a person is passionate about what they have and what they possess, in Arabic, that's known as the Veda or Hui.
That's we won't be speaking about so much jealousy when a person is passionate about what they possess. Now Jealousy has said is,
has it in the meaning of envy is sinful,
later, can be good or bad. In fact, Javeed and it could be Allah who can relate to these codep Imam Abdullah Hamlins Muslims and others in which Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, in the middle of ADA de ma, you should Billa Amin Hama, Ugarit Allah
and then later, he says, For a moderator to let him know later to let you Hibbeler fillerina to fee Reba, what a melotti ukhrul fillerina to fee rate Aviva meaning, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, of greater of jealousy.
That is that which Allah loves. And that is that which Allah dislikes
us and then later in the Hadith as for that layer,
that Allah likes. It's a very Euro, in that jealousy in that ask for that jealousy which Allah dislikes is jealousy. Without doubt, what does this mean?
We learn from this hadith in Islam availa jealousy, possessiveness, protective and protectiveness
can be both commended or condemned,
liked by law disliked by law, commended is when there is cause to that.
So in the case of a husband and wife, if the spouse, the husband or the wife is behaving suspiciously,
there is circumstantial evidence, there are genuine doubts there is suspicious behavior.
Then this will naturally arouse suspicion.
And if this arouses suspicion,
and the husband or the wife becomes a you, becomes passionate becomes jealous, possessive,
begins inquiring probing.
because of the genuine dat, this is actually commended. This is the leader that Allah loves, because it shows a person's dignity.
But equally so,
if there is no doubt, and a person has meaning, merely being paranoid and suspicious, and over protective, over possessive,
making life hell for the other spouse, for the spouse, even though the spouse is innocent, and has given no causal reason for that,
and is not behaving suspiciously
and yet the spouse is still possessive protective
and is jealous.
Then this is actually condemned and lost parameter with other dislikes such jealousy. So there is a balance. And I mentioned this because undoubtedly There are countless cases where
a spouse is over protective
and this possessive, protective jealous behavior without just cause without reason without justification, makes life hell.
For the for the for the split for the other spouse, and that's actually haram.
It's haram to be to behave suspect
Firstly, it's haram to be suspicious.
Everyone is responsible for their own behavior.
So, that's a vapor. That's jealousy, we won't be speaking about jealousy in the meaning of Aveda at all
I'm speaking about how acid has said is that envy when a person becomes passionate and worked up about what someone else has.
They aren't possessive or protective about something they have.
there's also another type of envy, which is innocence, which is benign.
There's no separate word for it. So a person could
something another person has, without becoming passionate, or without becoming vindictive, or harboring ill feeling towards a person.
So if someone
sees a total stranger,
and that stranger has
now, the person's never going to see them again. They're not a threat to them in any way. And they like what they see they like what they have. So they make a very innocent, a genuinely sincere and innocent declaration of admiration, approval, congratulation, and an innocent desire to have the same.
So they say,
You've achieved this. You've got this, Masha, Allah, I really admire you, I envy your success. I envy your accomplishment. I envy, your achievement. And it's a genuine congratulation. It's very sincere, there's no ill will.
in English, you still use the word envy.
And person says, I envy you that meaning I wish I could have something of the same without any harm coming to you.
And this is a good distinction.
is when a person
becomes passionate about what something someone else has. And they desire for that blessing for that favor, for that object of their envy, to be removed from that person, irrespective of whether they get it or not.
That's haram envy. And good envy in English is when a person
congratulate someone else, or declares to them that I admire or I envy this achievement of yours, I envy your achievement.
They bear no ill will to them.
What they wish is that I could have the same without that blessing being removed from the other person.
So in English, there's no real
word to distinguish between the two. Being Arabic there's so in Arabic, sinful envy, is hassad when a person becomes passionate about what someone else has, and actually wants it removed from them, regardless of whether they get it or not.
So if someone has more money, we burn from within. Why has he got that?
Why does he have that? Why him?
How I wish he no longer has it. Now, imagine?
Would they be happy? If they got the same? No.
They would still be angry because the other person's got it?
Would they be happy if they got it or not. But it was removed from the other person most definitely. That's the Haram envy that's Hassard
benign envy, where a person wants the same thing without any harm coming to the other person in Arabic is known as a lip.
It's known as lip balm, so there's actually a specific word for it. So we have a layer which I won't be speaking of because that's about jealousy, being passionate about and possessive and protective of what you have. We won't be speaking about that. We will be speaking about a zipper which is benign and VB inshallah I'll speak about that in the next verse. And today I'll focus on hesed which
is the evil sinful envy which Allah who is resourceful Allah Malik Salam have warned us against.
So, every one of us is guilty of envy, and we can equally be a victim of envy.
No one has been saved.
Adam Alayhis Salam,
che bomb. Many orlimar have said one of the first sins to be committed in the heavens in that in the sky
IBLEES was arrogant. Lord told him prostrate to Adam
For stockmar Allah says he was arrogant
lug asked him, I commanded you to prostrate to add them Why didn't she? His reply was an A hate on men. I am better than him. Hello, then even nanny will HELOC for whom in lien You created me from fire. And you created him from clay. I I'm better than him, why should I prostrate to him.
So alongside the sin of arrogance
IBLEES was envious of the honor and respect that other murderer has received from Allah, that Allah commanded everyone to prostrate.
So all a man say one of the first sins to be committed in the heavens was acid envy. Eventually, because of that envy, and the arrogance IBLEES plotted against our family has said you were sent down to earth
and on earth, Adam Alehissalaam her children and this is actually mentioned in the Quran what's really neat Adam and Bill help if a robot Quran and believe in Him, I want to meet up with them in
order to learn.
I'll eat them a little bit alarming and clean. And so long story Allah says and recite to them
of the two sons of Adam
and that time there were only two sons
a question of marriage arose.
So who was entitled to
the lady's hand in marriage?
Both sons of Adam
Alayhis Salam were commanded to give an offering to Allah Acorah Valley
so qurbani, although some people say Corbin is very overdue, it's an Asian word.
And at the time of evil other half
some people are very particular about saying what they hear.
And they refrain from using the word auto Barney and some actually corrected don't say autobahn. It's a very Asian word. It comes from a robot aurvana Oberman. CorBon is an Arabic word. So both both of them offer the origami
But only the offering of one of the two brothers was accepted by law. The other wasn't.
That meant he wasn't entitled to marry
the girl in question
what did that do? He was envious.
Marriage, I want to marry her.
Why was he chosen to marry? Why not me?
So his response, luck stolen, I will most assuredly kill.
And that's what he did.
Envy was one of the first sins and the heavens envy was one of the first sins on
envy is destructive envy led to the murder of one of the sons of other Malays.
The prophets of Allah he was salam when they came with their message
and they told the people
believe in us, many of the elites the rich, the powerful, the wealthy, the nobility,
and Allah subhanho wa Taala actually gives one of the reasons for their refusal to believe.
Allah says when a sign came to them
all Lulu Notman
had done up there Miss Rama oto Rasul Allah
Allahu Allah more haste he added a salad
when the sign came to them a sign which should have made them believe immediately because it couldn't be refuted.
We will never believe until we are given the like, of what the messengers of Allah have been given.
Because their objection was,
and this was constantly repeated by many of the peoples regarding their messengers. They've long wanted to send a messenger a prophet communicate with us, then he should have sent an angel Why did he send? Why didn't he send an Angel?
They said that about Rasulullah sallallahu it will send them to
that why, if Allah wants to communicate with us, did he choose him?
And this is about most of the messengers
and they said we won't believe until we are given the like the same of what these messengers have been given.
So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says in reply, Allahu era demo Hey Thea jagriti Sal, Allah knows far better, where to place his prophethood
who to make a profit.
And this is exactly what happened with Rasul Allah, Allah Allah Allah was
before us all Allah Subhan Allah Hi, Nathan cylinder Salam, speaking of the earlier prophets,
have said is what led to the Prophet Yusuf alayhi salam being persecuted
and his story is amazing.
He saw a dream
and he related that dream to his father's a lot of hopes in the very beginning of sort of use of
Yeah, but the NIRA Ito Dasha, Kokomo mushroom, so welcome. Lisa Jardine. Oh my father, so usefully salaam told his father who believes Sudan Oh my father, I saw
and the sun and the moon or 11 planets or 11 planetary heavenly bodies 11 heavenly bodies, because in Arabic gold cups simply means a heavenly body, it can refer to a slight can refer to a planet and the sun and the moon are so all of them frustrating to me.
Ultimately, the interpretation of that was his father and mother and brothers.
What was his father's replanning
Alia Guney Allah dot Soto Yaga Allah if latika for your key doula Qaeda in the shade lanolin in Sarnia, wouldn't be, oh my child, do not relate to your dream
to your brothers, less they then plot against you.
Verily, the devil
is a clear enemy for man.
If you relate the screen to your brothers
they will plot and scheme against you.
They were already jealous of. I use the word again they're already envious of him.
And use of Alayhis Salam was worn by his father that if you relate the streams
they will plot against you.
They will home
and that's because of shape one shape one will shape one is a clear enemy shape one creates these divisions.
And this is why
I'll explain this in more detail next week. But one of the ways of protecting oneself from envy is to
be very quiet silent and privates.
Not to be a show off.
Don't make a display.
Don't share or show everything.
It's fact imams in that hadith char quoted earlier for in the Kula the narrative Massoud the beginning of the hadith is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam says,
in the successful conclusion
of your needs, milkman by concealment
so where you need to conceal things, ie good things where you need to conceal good things. For him Nicola de Namur de Massoud for indeed every person of blessing or favor is envied.
When shouldn't go around, just
showing and sharing. And in fact, in a hadith laid by mom telling me that I had to learn healing from a companion called the Buddha zine whether your loved one was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speaks about good dreams.
And he says,
a good dream of a pious of a believer is 146 of profit. And then the Hadith continues. Then at the end of the Hadith Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, What are you had this will be in La Vie been, oh heavy, that a man should only relate a good dream to a person of great intelligence, ie someone who can interpret it, or Habiba or to a beloved purse,
only a trustworthy beloved purse.
If people can react
in a hostile manner,
and react maliciously, because of a dream.
Imagine how people are going to react and how Shavon is going to be able to get people to react
because of what they see in you, or of you or about you in real life, not just the dream.
Use of Alayhis Salam so a dream. His father prophets of Allah said Don't share your dream even with your own brothers. They will plot against you.
In this hadith tell me the the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, have a dream that a person who sees a good dream should not share that good dream with anyone except to people love EBO heavy What are you had this will be her Illa even though Habiba Labib is a person of lobe, meaning great intelligence, and what's the meaning of great intelligence here someone who can interpret the dream force
or a beloved
one shouldn't assume that oh Masha, Allah, He loves me. She loves me everyone loves me. Yaqoob alayhi salam said to his son, don't tell your own brothers.
For your key do like a Qaeda unless they plot against you. And in the hadith of double Ronnie from algebra, the Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, seek assistance through concealment, in bringing about the successful conclusion and fruition to your needs.
I Be quiet, be subdued, be privates. Don't share and don't show off. Don't share and show everything.
We all make that mistake.
Because you may be doing it very sincerely and innocently.
And initially, the other person may
not be envious, but if you bliss gets to them, if they're knifes gets to them,
then their love can change to hate.
Their admiration can change to malice very easily.
Because the two are connected hatred and
hazard are connected in a hadith related by a man with a humble in his Muslim imam Timothy and his son and and others from his debate and in our one model de la one. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the bay Lake will omit public will hassle the world Baccarat.
The disease of the nations of your the deceit the disease of the nations of before has crept into.
This is why I say every one of us is guilty of it. We may think I'm clear, I'm innocent and free of the sin of envy. It has crept into us without us realizing
the disease of the nations of your has crept into you. And what is that disease and hesed envy.
And then the prophets Allah Allah Almighty Who said
them says well, Bogota Oh he'll harlot la Akula SHA, what I can daddy padeen
and hatred, malice,
IE has also crept into you. And that's malice is the shaver.
malice, hate hatred is the shaver.
I do not say the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam continues, I do not say it shaves hair. When I come back it would deem rather he shaves religion.
Exactly what I was saying before. Good deeds are not set in stone.
That I do a good deed it's they're recorded in my account deposited, no change will ever come to hurt no.
Just as sins including hassad wipe away a person's good deeds, devour good deeds, like fire devours wood, or dry grass, bog law, hatred, and the two are connected hatred and hazard. malice and envy are both connected.
Hatred in a similar fashion shaves a person's religion,
We are embarrassed by being bought.
Imagine our book of deeds being bad and bought
We do many good deeds, we are guilty of hatred, hatred will shave our book of deeds leaving in bold. We perform many good deeds and we are guilty of the sin of envy, envy, will consume with fire our good deeds
leaving rubble stubble in fact, nothing totally bare.
So hatred and hazard are connected. So you may be relating and sharing a good thing sincerely and innocently with someone you perceive to be a good friend.
And initially they may bear no envy towards you.
But che bomb gets to them.
Their admiration turns to envy malicious envy, not benign envy, and then that envy leads to hatred.
In fact, in a hadith by Muslim lady as I said the two are connected in my Muslim Rahmatullahi Elena relate to Hadith in his sahih and so to others, from Abdullah Muhammad Abdullah asked for the love and humor. It's very beautiful Hadith Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said,
when wrong when Persia and Rome shall be conquered, for your Omen anthem. What kind of people will you be?
When Persia and Rome are conquered? He's addressing this habit of the hola
when Peggi and Roma conquered what kind of people will you be? So I'm dramatic now for the love and I said yeah I will soon Allah we shall say what Allah has commanded us to say. One of the meanings is we will be grateful to the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, our Hadith Ehrlich
that enough assume the metadata has
the metadata been submitted about
what I'm doing. When Persian Rome shall be conquered what kind of people will you be underhanded. Now for the Allah Allah said, O Messenger of Allah, we shall say what Allah has commanded us to say one of the meanings is we shall be grateful to Allah. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Really, or will it be something other than this? What will happen? That an alpha song, you will rival each other vibe with each other and compete with each other ie in the dunya, some metadata house or room, then you will become envious of each other. Then you will turn your backs to each other from Athabasca dome, then you shall come to hate each
has certain Bulevar go hand in hand.
hatred and envy, envy leads to hatred, hatred leads to envy and both are
parts of vicious cycle.
going back to the story of use of Alayhis Salam.
One lesson you can learn from there about how acid is try to protect others from the whispers of shade long. And from the temptation of shade balm by being a bit more discreet
and private and subdued and quiet about your own achievements. About
Aren't your own belongings, your possessions? Don't make a show and a display of everything don't share everything.
And that means you don't even say things like Alhamdulillah, masha Allah, Allah has given me this Alhamdulillah Masha Allah Allah has given me that. It doesn't matter whether you preface it
with the praise of Allah, it doesn't matter.
NVC straight through the praise of Allah to.
So it's best to be private, it's best to be quiet, be discreet, there's no need to make a show and display of everything.
No need to share everything. So use of alayhis salaam and that's what the prophets of Allah Islam says in that hadith do not, you shouldn't share the dream with except with an intelligent person, ie a person of interpretation,
or a beloved and even about interpretation. I'll quickly say in passing, please, please, please do not go to anyone, and everyone for an interpretation of your dreams.
First of all, we overwrite dreams. Matter of fact,
we overwrite our dreams.
And number two, when we see a dream, we rush with it to seek its interpretation.
And 99 point 99% of the times to unqualified people.
And those unqualified people say anything they do, they just say absolutely anything. And the tragedy is it's painful. Because I've dealt with so many cases, the tragedy is that people actually act on what others say.
And this is the same with this the hub
I'll just share one story with you.
There's an early
an hour the half of them an hourly
he got married to
a graduate graduates in Islamic Studies, both
they had children.
They had their disagreements
which marriage is without its differences.
Which marriages without disagreements.
Even the marriages of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam had their disagreements.
So they had their disagreements,
as a result of which they separated partially in the sense that
the wife went back to her parents
with that time apart
both came to realize what they truly meant to each
how important their marriage was for the sake of their children and for themselves.
They were reminded that time apart helped them
to heal and to realize what they meant to each.
So they both spoke and discussed and agreed that she will go back to the marital home and they will continue as no
the family of the girl
which actually included some Willa Mann graduates
they said no. We will do is the car to see if
she should go back.
So she's saying I want to go back. They saying no, we will do this the horror for you
so they then contact so they didn't do it's the heart of themselves. They contacted a dream
a professional Mustafi for hire.
So these are people
others pay them to do it's the car
so they ruin them up or they go to see them. And they say we want you to do it's the HA
The person says okay about what
and two decades ago that the going rate was to 300 pounds per person.
And they can do multiple. So any one night, they can do multiple it's the car.
So they contacted one of these professional Mooster thieves for hire.
And they said to him, this is a situation
can you do? It's the hardware. So he said, Call me tomorrow. And that's what they do. They they claim that they pray to God Salah to Mr. Hara at night, and then they go to bed. Of course having received their payments. As they say some people, you can't get them out of bed unless you pay them. These guys, you can't get them into bed until you pay them.
he went sleep, woke up the next morning. They contacted him by phone. I'm unfamiliar with that story. So I know that I know the family. I know the individuals. I know the professionals the feed
the hold on what they love.
And it's painful, it's tragic. So the next morning they contacted him
and he just casually the wife wants to get back with the husband.
He wants to get back with her. They have children
with a family is holding her hostage.
And they are being held hostage by this professional mr. here for Hi.
Next morning they contacted him and rather casually in dismissively, he just said to them on the phone. Yeah, I did this to Cara, and the answer's no.
The family forbade prevented her forcibly from going back to her husband.
A marriage was destroyed children's lives were destroyed.
Because of this obsession with people's dreams, and the interpretation of dreams.
And this is just one story. Lay them in faith as they say in Arabic.
A drop from a torrent that I deal
and that I'm aware of.
We overwrite dreams we really do. And I've spoken about this on many occasions.
So when you see a good dream, keep it to yourself.
Well, and act on what the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam says do not speak of it except to Olivia are heavy. A person of intelligence and who can interpret it, or a beloved, let the beloved be a True Beloved, and let the Libby be a truly be a person of true intelligence, scholarship, knowledge, sincerity, piety and Taqwa.
And these false interpretations have destroyed people's lives. Wallahi I was aware of another case where the person told me themselves.
person saw a dream.
In the dream.
This girl she saw a dream that in her dream she married
funa such and such a person it was a very vivid dream.
She in her hola Island while she went to one of these
hearings, he was known to be amorality. She went to this around him and said to him
I saw this dream and I saw for now, and he knows for now as well. So he knew that other person and in my dream I saw that I'm getting married to him.
Wallahi I do not lie. This is no joke. Do you know what his interpretation was? He said, Masha, Allah hamdulillah the interpretation of the stream is that you should marry me
I do not lie.
It would be hilarious if it wasn't so tragic.
It would be hilarious if it wasn't so tragic.
He actually told her the interpretation is that you marry me and she was actually confused because people repose their trust and confidence in people that they regard as old Emma.
And I'm not making an advertisement. I don't want to be I don't need to be bothered I don't have time. So I'm not saying come to me with dreams.
I'm not saying that.
I actually say just keep it to yourself.
The interpretation will happen anyway. Whatever Allah has
if you can find the Labib go to a Labib if you can find the Habib go to a hadith
So people trust all her mouth.
And she was initially confused and he pursued her by he really pursued her.
For months before she came some sort of realization through his antics and his behavior.
and like I said, I've dealt with so many cases where there have been, there's been an over reliance on dreams and
Just keep it to yourself. Don't share it. Act on the advice of Jacoba Lee has said, act on the advice of the prophets of Allah Almighty who was telling them and I'll end with just one part, meaning this section, that
Abdullahi Umar Radi Allahu Anhu. Uma
was a brother in law of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, his sister was married to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have settled the Allah and His father was honorable Hapa battle the love and his uncle was murdered in the mother's womb really Allah horn,
And he was a young man pure and innocent.
He had embraced Islam even before his age of puberty.
He was a Muslim from childhood.
And he loved the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would hover around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam all day long, frequent the house of his sister come in and out to learn from the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Imagine how pure a soul he was.
At night, he wouldn't sleep at home he would sleep in the mosh in mustard and the beasts of Lilavati.
Now imagine this young man,
pure of faith pure of soul, having never known a day of Jah Helia
the son of Bob the nephew of Mount Vernon with Runa, the Allahu and
and I say you the nephew of of Marlon number three, why?
Because of man or woman with whom the Allah Han was a truly great companion, a true great ascitic.
When he passed away, the Prophet SAW Allah Almighty He was sending them stood over him, spoke to him and said,
oath man, you left the world in such a state that the dunya did not touch you and you did not touch the dunya.
And he wept.
And he bowed, meaning he bent over and he kissed with Mandarin with only the Lavon is for.
And then when he was buried, He buried him in jimothy. And he said, bring a stone or a rock, so that may mark his grave. Why this was, these are the words of the messenger SallAllahu Sallam he said, so that when my family members pass away on our to be buried, I would like to bury them next to off man.
So he was a nephew with mom and with the brother of Hafsa, or the lover, I'm the son of
the brother in law of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam all day who would spend around the messengers of Allah and sell them at night, you would sleep in mustard than the visa Allahu alayhi salam. If anyone would see a good dream it was him. And you remember Hardy Rahmatullah did relate some soul to others, he would say, I will never see dreams.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would ask us, if anyone seen a dream, share it. And I really wanted to see your dream so that I could share it. Never saw dreams. So I pray to Allah saying, Oh Allah, if there is any good in me, show me a good dream.
Eventually saw a magnificent dream. Truly.
The angels took him on a tour
of the heavens and much happened in that dream. He was elated. He shared the dream with a sister first, who then told the prophets of the love it was so late he told him himself. What was the interpretation of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, this elaborate, long, beautiful dream of ignorant model the Allahumma the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is interpretation,
a magnificent dream and a succinct interpretation. His interpretation was
he told his sister, meaning he told his wife, the sister of ignoring
Well, so that she could tell him the prophets interpretations of the law while he was in the ones.
Abdullah is a good man, if only he would pray at night, thus.
That's the interpretation. After that date you model the alarm I would never miss Salah
despite sleeping in the masjid and maybe being who he was in his whole background having to make dua to Allah, Allah if there isn't a good in me, show me a dream. It's all wondering. And that was the interpretation Subhana Allah, we are nowhere far away from the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam from Masjid in the visa Lula Hardy was some of them we all who we all We live where we live. We live in the period that we live in. What is it surpasses? Is it something we that we see so many dreams?
Or is it that we watch and we see so many dreams?
And we go running with these dreams to false interpreters? And these false interpreters provide? Why neither Labib nor hubby. And they provide false interpretations. And we act on these interpretations racking our lives will likely wreck our lives.
Yeah, koobideh has CERAM told his son, don't share your dream even with your brothers. Otherwise it will plot
just like that, Alan.
She said, I saw that I married him.
And he began plotting straight away. The interpretation is are you marry me?
The brothers envied Yusuf alayhi salam, and it led to his attempted murder. He's been cast in the wells as being banished from his own land, the pain of his own father.
the blindness of his father, the envy of the brothers caused the blindness of their father uncle Billy's
will be up but it now has risen. And his eyes became white ie sightless. Through Grief. Well, the Quran tells us stress causes bad eyesight,
stress, exacerbates and compound poor eyesight.
That's the story of use of Alayhis Salam.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he announced his prophethood the people of Quraysh
they envied him. The people of Medina some of them envied him, they refuse to believe in Him. They caused him hurt and pain.
Loss crownhill with Allah says of the people of Makkah, that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam announces Islam to them, and announced Islam to them, and invite them
when he read the Quran to them, one of their replies was, what are all hola Mozilla ha the road really minakari Athenian Alvine.
same as before,
why him? And this is this is the thing about Hesson.
Part of the nature of hesed envy is a person, envy arises from anger arises from arrogance, it arises from a sense of entitlement. So a person thinks, Why should he have that? Why should she have
I should have it and if I don't have it, he shouldn't have it. She shouldn't have.
So there's a sense of arrogance, entitlement. He believes serve an amen I'm better than him. When Allah told him to prostrate to add them at his salaam, arrogance, he envied America, his Salah.
So the Quraysh the people of Makkah said
If Allah wants to choose a prophets, why not send an Angel and if he wanted to choose a human being, then why him why Mohammed Omar Abdullah, from the karma bundle Hashem He is neither the wealthiest amongst us, nor is the the most powerful or influential amongst us.
He's just one of us. What does he have that we don't?
So if Allah truly wanted to reveal the Quran, and this is a meaning of this verse, What are you and they said Lola and Mozilla the Quran? Why wasn't this Quran revealed and Raja liminal Acharya to intervene upon a great man of the two cities, the SU two cities meaning Mecca and life.
And according to a number of narrations, the two most famous names that are men
Should who were the two men that they wanted
to have received the Quran other than the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam.
The man from Makkah was unbelievable. Maria Khalid Domingo leads father, because since he was one of the greatest leaders of the Qureshi and the most senior in age and in position, he was there see? Wise, intelligent, rich, powerful, influential.
He held sway in command.
Man of eloquence,
so they said why wasn't already the Marina made a profit? Why didn't he receive the Quran from Mecca? Or why wasn't autonomous through the theater fee from the tribal booster fee from BART if a very wise intelligent man. He later became Muslim and died a Shaheed But initially, that he only became Muslim much, much later. And he was instrumental in the story of the Saudi Arabia, the truce of Davia. But then, he had come to live in Mecca because his wife was related to the people and McCain was married. He was related to them through marriage. He was originally from bhyve and from the tribal beneath the leaf
so they said the other man ie autonomous route from pa if so why wasn't the Quran reveal to a great man from one of these two cities?
So ALLAH SubhanA wa with Allah as reply as a homeopath Simona Rahmatullah?
What do they distribute the mercy of your law
and this is a nature of hesed we are objecting to Allah's distribution.
Allah gives to whom He wills with holds to him from whom He wills in his wisdom.
This is why a poet says
Allah coolamon voli has
a 30 Adam an edible
low say to one who remains envious of me.
Do you realize
who you have been insolent to
a SATA Adela if you hooked me
in Ireland Bolivar Lima whatever. You have been insolent to Allah in His judgment and in his decision, because you have not been content about what he Allah has bestowed on me.
So Omeo Simona, Rama tropic, what do they divide?
The mercy of y'all.
And when the prophets Allah, Allah, Allah, he was sentimental. Madina, Munawwara. Some of the people of Medina envied and they said the same thing that he claims to be a messenger of Allah but he's like this, he has this he has that is actually to do with his marriage.
So specifically about the marriages of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, when some people will raise an objection, Allah subhanho wa Taala reveal the verse um, yeah, so the one and now sad I
mean for today, what are they envious of people?
Do they envy people that which Allah has given them of His Grace and Bounty
Allama Mala whom in front of me what Allah has given them of His Bounty. This is why I'm delighted because ruderal the Lavon used to say, now to do Nam ALLAH, do not be enemies of the gifts and blessings of Allah. So it was said to him, how can we be enemies of the blessings of Allah? He said, Do not be envious of people, that which Allah has bestowed upon them of his bounty and grace. If you envy people, then you are envious and you are then an enemy of the blessings of Allah.
Allah said do they distribute the Mercy of your Lord?
Now, some nabina Manisha don't fit hieratic Allah continues, we have distributed their livelihood between in the worldly life
what a foreigner Bible home folk about
lately the battle bands and so Korea
and we have elevated some of them over others
in ranks, so that they may take
I like each other in employment.
This is a wisdom of Allah's creation in the dunya, which is an abode of testing. It's an abode of trial of tribulation. It's an abode of dependence, not independence. No one is independent. We are all dependent. We are dependent on each other. We are dependent on Allah.
We are dependent on the creation and on the Create. Allah has given all of his strengths and weaknesses. No one is perfect. We are all reliant on each other. We are all small cogs in a huge machine. Only by working within cooperation and in conjunction with others, will this machine run smoothly and successfully? Individually, we cannot survive, let alone thrive.
And thus, Allah says we have raised some of you over others so that you may take each other in employment.
We all need each other.
No one person can do everything.
You might be a car mechanic.
When you fall ill and you need heart surgery. You're not a heart surgeon.
You go to someone else.
You might be a builder.
But you might not know anything about electricity and you're not an electrician.
Every field has its experts
except us now
everyone's an expert.
So the mechanic is an expert on the Quran and the Hadith and the doctor is an expert on the Quran and Hadith and FIP and the bricklayer is an expert on the Quran Hadith and from the farm is an expert on the Quran, Hadith and fiqh.
I say a mechanic because one earlier he writes in his book that
the local mechanic from the Garriage came to debate with him. And he's a scholar of Hadith came to debate with him.
And he was a mechanic from the local garbage.
I say that sarcastically obviously, that we aren't experts in everything we all rely on each other aren't dependent on each other need each other. This is why Allah has given us different grades. In his wisdom. Allah has given Allah hasn't given everyone everything. We all need each and therefore why should we be envious of the division and the distribution of Allah?
Allah divides and distributes and spreads in his wisdom.
When Allah gives one thing Allah depart with holes another thing as well.
I've mentioned about
Allah man will shadow Kashmiri Rahim Allah, an absolute genius with a prodigious and photographic memory photonic memory.
This man could memorize entire books of Hadith of FIP of different sciences.
But he wasn't a half of the Quran.
Allah withheld from him
the Quran, the memorization of the Quran,
pursuit allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was who he was. But Allah says of Him in the Quran, Omar alumna who shared her 1 million believe we did not teach him poetry and it is not befitting him. And this is why the Arabs would say
hello bunny abdomen, SHA, Allah Rasool,
all of the children of abdomen AF. The grand clan of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was somebody who Hashem
and he had his clan had three sister clans, but who Nofal when McCollum and Burnham the shrimps these were the four sons of abdomen AF. They were Hashem Nofal with body and amateur shrimps.
And their father was abdomen Earth.
And his father was saved or say he was the one who conquered muckety muck era
and took it from the leadership and the control of the women because our
And he then secured it for the courage
and his son will say, Sorry will say was on who did this, his son abdomen Earth became his most powerful, influential and famous and prominent son. And his four sons became the most powerful and famous, and they held most of the offices in the city of Mecca. And this is why for hundreds of centuries, whether it was a bundle mania, or whether it was a bundle bundle at bursts, whether it was about acids, or the Romanians, leadership, Empire, kingship monarchy, in the Muslim world, rested for approximately 600 years, only in the sons of abdominals.
Because the Dominions were from the clan of abductions.
So that ancestor was abdomen AF. So if man I'm not a fan with the love and my we're gonna be Soufiane abou Soufiane himself.
And all of that means we're from the Clam of the shrimps, one of the sons of abdomen half the above acids were from the sons of Allah Basma Abdulmutallab from Blue Hashem, and they were from the sons of abdominus. In any case, this was a huge crime that was powerful, prominent, influential, wise, they were all natural poets, every one of them. So the Arabs would say, every individual in the whole sub tribe of abdomen AF was opposed, with the exception of just one person. And that one person was Rasul Allah so Allah Allah, Allah, Almighty Allah Now I'm sharing all of mine believer, and we have not taught him poetry and nor is it befitting him, Allah in His wisdom, made others
and he made Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam such that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam could not recite poetry, compose poetry, could not recall poetry, could not cite poetry even about himself.
So Allah His wisdom, gives and takes with holes and provides so that we are all dependent on each other.
Why should we be envious of what someone has? We're always looking at others. I want to be in his shoes, I want to be in her shoes. I want to be where he is where she is, truly, no one knows the other person's pain.
What they are going through,
we see the exterior
what goes through their heart and mind
what has happened to them in life, what will happen to them in life, what they have suffered and endured.
This is the nature of law.
This is why use of Alayhis Salam said, and this is the hola sort of sort of use of Illuminati wires Spiro for in Hola, hola, Yulia, or Julian more skinnin. Indeed, He who is wary and fearing of Allah, and who is patience and perseverance, then indeed, Allah does not allow the reward of those who do good to go to waste.
It doesn't. And it doesn't mean that that reward will be seen in this dunya. This is an abode of trial and tribulation. So in this dunya, and this is why Allah says right at the end of this verse, that we have elevated some of you over others, so that you may take each other in employment. But
so what if someone's better than you in the dunya? Allah ends this verse by saying, what our motto, Pharaoh min Maya, and the Mercy of your Lord is far better than what they accumulate. And
so what if someone's rich,
it's mean anything.
A lot more can be said, insha Allah. I'll continue with the topic of in the next week, and I'll discuss a few more Hadith and verses of the Quran regarding envy. And then most importantly,
I'll also speak about how envy is so destructive to us and what Allah has are a source of Allah, it was salam say about that, and how we should work towards eradicating this disease of envy from our hearts, and not just for religious purposes. If someone says, Well, you know, all of this
reward in the art and purification of the heart. I'm not interested in all of that,
as the late
