as announced before,

00:01:21--> 00:01:23

we've gathered here for

00:01:26--> 00:01:29

a gathering, focusing on a spiritual topic.

00:01:31--> 00:01:34

Today, today's discussion will be

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

about pride and arrogance.

00:01:43--> 00:01:49

In sha Allah, this will be part of a series of talks on the diseases of the heart.

00:01:55--> 00:01:58

lungs are so subtle, Allahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:59--> 00:02:00


00:02:01--> 00:02:03

taught us about health.

00:02:06--> 00:02:10

And the Islamic approach to health is a holistic one.

00:02:13--> 00:02:14

It doesn't just focus on the body.

00:02:16--> 00:02:18

it caters for the body,

00:02:19--> 00:02:20

and the mind

00:02:23--> 00:02:26

and the heart and soul and spirits

00:02:31--> 00:02:34

in this day and age, especially and throughout history,

00:02:35--> 00:02:42

but more so in this day and age. There's a great emphasis and almost obsession,

00:02:43--> 00:02:48

and some degree rightfully so. with one's physical health.

00:02:51--> 00:02:52

Billions are spent

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

by virtually every country.

00:02:59--> 00:03:04

On the nation's health, where there is public health funding,

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

and where there is private health funding,

00:03:10--> 00:03:18

most people's salaries and life savings disappear in private medical health and treatment.

00:03:20--> 00:03:21

In fact,

00:03:22--> 00:03:29

in a private individuals life and in the nation's public life all over the world across the globe.

00:03:31--> 00:03:34

health expenditure will be

00:03:35--> 00:03:39

the foremost expenditure and expense.

00:03:43--> 00:03:44

It will cover

00:03:46--> 00:03:52

the greatest part and the lion's share of an individual's privates budgets or a national budget.

00:03:59--> 00:03:59

Every year

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

at the beginning of the new year.

00:04:04--> 00:04:23

gyms see a sudden rise in subscriptions because everyone makes a new year's resolution, to be healthy, to be fit, to eat healthily, to go on a diet to go to the gym and keep fit.

00:04:26--> 00:04:27

And the number of

00:04:30--> 00:04:34

articles and books and journals and publications.

00:04:35--> 00:04:45

Giving conflicting advice on health and diet on diets are so numerous that they are confounding and confusing to

00:04:47--> 00:04:54

some degree. This obsession with health is undoubtedly justified. However,

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

it's very narrow. It's very restricted. It concerns as well we

00:05:00--> 00:05:04

concern ourselves only with the physical health of the body.

00:05:06--> 00:05:27

It's a holistic approach to health which now some people are recognizing. That's why there's a greater interest in Eastern philosophy, in spiritual matters, in things such as zen, and Confucianism and Buddhism, and even in Hinduism.

00:05:31--> 00:05:40

Many of the rich and powerful and especially the celebrities, after having gained and mastered

00:05:43--> 00:05:51

the most of what the rest of the population aspires to name, fame, glitz, glamour, glory,

00:05:53--> 00:05:55

they are still searching for something.

00:05:59--> 00:06:02

And despite being the cultural elites of the West,

00:06:05--> 00:06:14

and despite being the glamorous elites of the wealth of the West, in terms of wealth, name, fame, prestige,

00:06:16--> 00:06:24

with people worshipping them, adoring them, they are still searching for something and they turn to these

00:06:26--> 00:06:33

many turn to Buddhism. Others turn to other Eastern philosophies even hinders,

00:06:35--> 00:06:43

in order to somehow find what they are seeking, which they haven't been able to discover yet in materials.

00:06:46--> 00:06:57

So holistic approach to help some people are now recognizing is one which takes into account the body, the mind, and the soul and spirits.

00:07:00--> 00:07:05

And alarm is a source of the law highly was seldom have taught that from the very beginning.

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

So last time it was in them said, we're in religious of the garlic.

00:07:13--> 00:07:22

And indeed, your body has a right over you. But before he said that, he also said, we're in lira bucolic, and indeed, your Lord has arrived.

00:07:24--> 00:07:25

And that's before the body.

00:07:28--> 00:07:36

And it's not just the body which has arrived over it's our rule, our spirit, which is the essence of our life, that has a right over us.

00:07:41--> 00:07:42


00:07:43--> 00:08:02

it's important that we learn about the sins and the diseases of the heart and the spirits, and we fear them, and we work to eradicate them from our character, and to flee from them and remove them from ourselves as much as we fear

00:08:04--> 00:08:12

and find physical ailments and diseases, and also physical sins of the flesh.

00:08:16--> 00:08:19

We fear and we flee from and we frown upon

00:08:21--> 00:08:23

sins of the flesh, such as theft,

00:08:24--> 00:08:25


00:08:26--> 00:08:27


00:08:29--> 00:08:30

physical assault,

00:08:31--> 00:08:55

because these are very prominent, very conspicuous very much in your face, they lead to shame and embarrassment, even for those who are guilty of them. These aren't just frowned upon by others, but maybe not in all cases, but in many cases, those who indulge in the sins of the flesh,

00:08:56--> 00:09:06

during or especially after, men sink into low depths of self hate, of self doubt,

00:09:07--> 00:09:07


00:09:09--> 00:09:13

regrets, of shame and embarrassment.

00:09:16--> 00:09:26

But, when it comes to the sins of the heart, the diseases of the heart, they are so subtle, so in conspicuous

00:09:28--> 00:09:32

that we know that detect them, let alone fear them or fight

00:09:34--> 00:09:54

and they are probably even more destructive than the sins of the flesh. So inshallah over the next few months, I will be focusing on some of the sins of the heart, the diseases of the heart. And today, let's speak of pride and arrogance given the company

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

there are various names are good to come.

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

bottle is thick bar, they all synonymous. But there are subtle differences for the falsehood. And I'll explain all of them.

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

So today, let me focus on pride Americans.

00:10:16--> 00:10:19

In fact, there's a subtle difference between pride and arrogance to

00:10:26--> 00:10:30

lost power, who with the other has created as and blessed as with many things

00:10:33--> 00:10:34

with many favors,

00:10:35--> 00:10:42

food, drink life itself systems, and wealth and provisions.

00:10:44--> 00:10:48

And sometimes we see these wealth and provisions arms around us.

00:10:51--> 00:10:54

And we are happy with them, we are contented with them we are pleased.

00:10:57--> 00:10:59

But sometimes this goes a bit further.

00:11:01--> 00:11:08

And these favors and blessings of Allah, leaders in sizes to be proud

00:11:10--> 00:11:27

and not proud in the sense of being content and happy and grateful to Allah, but proud in the sense of being arrogant, holding others in contempt, believing ourselves to be superior and better in any way.

00:11:29--> 00:11:31

This is what's forbidden

00:11:33--> 00:11:40

and it's very beautifully described in the Hadith related by Muslim God in his feet and by others

00:11:41--> 00:11:44

from say them Abdullah him When was the last time

00:11:45--> 00:11:48

he says the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:11:50--> 00:11:54

liath horologium metalman canopy. I'll be here with all of that within

00:11:56--> 00:11:57

our region

00:11:58--> 00:12:05

in the Roger akuna thoubal, who has won and who has been on

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

in the law jameela

00:12:11--> 00:12:17

el kebir baccaro wantonness aka Mr. Carlos Alomar.

00:12:19--> 00:12:25

And the law, the law says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:12:26--> 00:12:31

that person in whose hearts there is a particles way

00:12:32--> 00:12:35

of arrogance of pride.

00:12:37--> 00:12:39

He will never enter gentlemen.

00:12:40--> 00:12:43

So a man who was present said O Messenger of Allah,

00:12:44--> 00:12:53

a man wishes to see his clothes being good, his shoes being good, the sandals being good.

00:12:55--> 00:13:02

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam understood what he was trying to say. And his reply was Allah His beautiful

00:13:03--> 00:13:04

he loves beauty.

00:13:06--> 00:13:09

Rather given pride arrogance is

00:13:12--> 00:13:15

the denial and the defiance of truth.

00:13:17--> 00:13:24

The denial of truth and defiance against the truth was um finance meaning holding others and content.

00:13:27--> 00:13:28

In Arabic.

00:13:30--> 00:13:33

similar words have similar meanings.

00:13:34--> 00:14:03

And also means humps, which means to reduce someone's worth and spending so much meaning holding others in contempt, considering them, considering them to be inferior in any way whatsoever. This is the pride This is the arrogance. This is the Gibbon which our last panel with the alphabets and condemns in the strongest terms.

00:14:05--> 00:14:23

So if a person is proud, in the sense that they are happy and content, but they are also grateful to Allah, and they do not consider anyone else to be inferior, like a father, or a mother, a parent who is proud of

00:14:27--> 00:14:46

his or her children, a child succeeds a child performs well does well. And a thought and the father or mother feel pride in their hearts. That pride is one of joy, happiness, contentment, and also gratitude to the last panel or the other. There is nothing wrong in that.

00:14:49--> 00:14:56

If Allah has blessed someone with wealth, and they make a display of that wealth not arrogantly

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

and not insulting

00:15:00--> 00:15:47

Have concedes, but rather Allah has given them wealth so they use it. So Allah has provided someone with wealth and they wear good clothes. They make themselves presentable and appear pleasant and attractive. They groom themselves, they look after themselves, then as long as there is no self conceit as long as there is no attitude and arrogance and pride, and the contempt of others, or considering anyone else to be inferior in any way, or to regard this as being exclusive to themselves, and as long as they are grateful to Allah, in all of this, there is no harm whatsoever. As the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explains, in this hadith of a man Muslim from Abdullah

00:15:47--> 00:15:50

Massoud, there'll be a lot one that

00:15:51--> 00:16:07

there is no harm in his clothes, being good, his sandals being good, and in moderation of this hadith. According to other authors, including amount of ramblings, Muslim, that are more details, he even goes on to speak about his hair, and other

00:16:08--> 00:16:35

parts of clothing and appearance. And insert again, another iteration of this had the, in fact, in another generation recorded by many rollermouse, including the Manhattan isms, and others are sort of laughs and the love it was in them actually says, in the law, you should put in your art I thought I never met the piano or in the law, what are your thoughts on it? II Allah, that Allah indeed

00:16:37--> 00:17:37

lacks a lot approves of the sounds of his blessings in favor, to be seen on herself. So if Allah has blessed them with wealth, and that is a last favor on him, then there is no harm in fact, Allah wishes for for his favor to be displayed on his servant. However, all of this must be done without any disregard for another without any consideration of exclusivity or feeling exclusive of superiority, without regarding anyone elses inferior without any concedes, without any undue pride, without any arrogance, without any content. And with total sincerity, and humility in the heart, but a display of a last favor on the exterior, then there is no harm other ones. And this advice is very

00:17:37--> 00:17:38


00:17:39--> 00:18:10

It's extremely, it's an extremely risky tactic. How does one ensure that one does not disregard another hold them in contempt see oneself as superior? There's a very fine line to be drawn. And sometimes we can be deluded, we can, we may show an attitude of only speaking of last favor, but in reality in heart, we are arrogant and proud. And

00:18:12--> 00:18:15

as well there's a story mentioned in sort

00:18:17--> 00:18:40

of the Sahel region nothing of the man with two great gardens, which displays us beautifully. Sometimes we we like to mask our pride and our concedes with words such as a Hamlet in LA and Masha Allah, Allah has given me this. Allah has blessed me in this way.

00:18:42--> 00:18:45

Allah told us all of us in the love it was seldom

00:18:48--> 00:19:13

that Amelia tema fill out the Messiah in a fella than her What a maddening Arabic have had this, and I saw the favor of your Lord and amset speak they're off. And that Allah has mentioned that if someone speaks of the favors of Allah on themselves, and there's no harm in this, as long as it has been done sincerely and with actual humility.

00:19:14--> 00:19:23

Otherwise, as I said, it's a very fine line. One can easily struggle could easily stray into boastfulness and arrogance.

00:19:25--> 00:19:33

And that's part of our human nature. That's what we do. We love to boast, we love to see ourselves as better than someone else.

00:19:34--> 00:19:42

So what happened in that story? Allah has his origin says, what the biblical mythology, Alain, Jana had to imagine the thing and when

00:19:43--> 00:19:47

and the story continues. That's

00:19:50--> 00:19:52

strike for them the parable

00:19:53--> 00:19:56

of the two men. One of them

00:19:57--> 00:19:58

we had granted him

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

To great gardens to great vineyards

00:20:09--> 00:20:11

and land surrounded these gardens

00:20:13--> 00:20:15

with other palm groves.

00:20:17--> 00:20:19

And in between there were other fields in TIFF.

00:20:21--> 00:20:31

And there were also streams and rivers. So, huge properties, huge estates, gardens, orchards, vineyards, palm groves.

00:20:32--> 00:20:34

And the there was so fertile,

00:20:35--> 00:20:38

that they would give a double the produce.

00:20:40--> 00:20:42

And he had great fruits, great properties.

00:20:44--> 00:20:53

And he was happy and proud. So and there was another poor man. So he was one of them. The other was poor. So he took him on a tour of his estates and his lands.

00:20:54--> 00:20:58

And you're saying, Look at what I have.

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

But he became boastful, he became arrogant.

00:21:08--> 00:21:11

And he said, an thirimanne command on why as soon as

00:21:12--> 00:21:17

he said to the poor one, I am mightier than you in numbers.

00:21:19--> 00:21:21

And I'm greater than you in wealth.

00:21:22--> 00:21:29

And then the story continues, I'll return to the story later. But just as a simple reference,

00:21:30--> 00:21:42

in a way he even spoke about last paramahansa Allah He spoke about his creator in that story, but that was part of his delusion. He said, If I am returned to my Lord,

00:21:44--> 00:21:48

then Allah will bless me with more there than he has blessed me with hair.

00:21:51--> 00:22:26

So he spoke in a very arrogant and delusional manner, but he still mentioned the name of Allah. So sometimes we can boast each other. And yet we mask it, we cover it with the name of Allah, with as though we are trying to say this is a favor of a la hongmi. This is the last blessing on me. But in reality, we are simply boasting. We boast all the time, it's part of our nature. A lot testifies that the whole of our life on earth is about mutual boasting and one upmanship.

00:22:27--> 00:22:29

And her como Taka for

00:22:34--> 00:22:35

one upmanship

00:22:37--> 00:22:39

has distracted

00:22:40--> 00:22:54

and that's the meaning of the castle. One upmanship increasing, not just increase, increasing with the specific view of beating the other of competing with the other one,

00:22:56--> 00:22:57

getting one over the other.

00:22:59--> 00:23:04

So Alhamdulillah, Taka, Taka through one upmanship has distracted

00:23:07--> 00:23:13

until you visit the graves, meaning this will remain your condition.

00:23:14--> 00:23:24

Until you visit the graves the whole of life is about boasting, and one upmanship. I mean sort of heavy the law mentions that in even more detail.

00:23:27--> 00:23:33

Like xojo says it a little under manhyia to dunya Larry Bula, Xena tomahto

00:23:34--> 00:23:37

what the far from Bane acumatica from Santa Maria.

00:23:38--> 00:23:43

Know that the worldly life is only Larabee Claire

00:23:46--> 00:23:48

Willa, destruction

00:23:51--> 00:23:57

was seen and a beauty meaning and external beauty and ornamentation.

00:24:00--> 00:24:07

What the first home buying and mutual boasting between yourselves what occurs

00:24:09--> 00:24:11

and one upmanship in wealth and in children.

00:24:13--> 00:24:20

That's the reality of our world in life. That's all we do. We're always competing with one another in wealth in children.

00:24:24--> 00:24:25


00:24:26--> 00:24:30

people used to compete with one another, then children, the more sun

00:24:32--> 00:24:34

the more proud father felt.

00:24:36--> 00:24:37

And I've covered this before.

00:24:38--> 00:24:42

Now we may not be boastful of numbers,

00:24:43--> 00:24:59

not of the quantity of children but certainly of the quality of children. My son, my daughter has achieved this my son my daughter, has this career has this job, and so much is of this position. It doesn't change, whether it's to do

00:25:00--> 00:25:44

quantity of children or the quality of the children. Our life is all about posting to one and one upmanship beating the other, my car should be better than the others, my house should be better than the others. My clothing should be better than the others. It's all about intention. If a person wears good clothes, drives a good car, has good sandals, shoes, grooves himself or herself. Well, but it's done sincerely, with no arrogance, no undue pride, with no contempt of someone else, with no feeling of exclusivity, with no concedes, and with a genuine gratitude to a last panel with Anna and that's fine.

00:25:45--> 00:25:54

If there's any intention of beating the other, competing with the other out doing the other surpassingly other

00:25:55--> 00:26:03

shows showing oneself feeding oneself to be superior than the other. Then that's the haraam. Gibbon that's the her arm.

00:26:04--> 00:26:15

That's her arm and forbidden boastfulness, arrogance, conceit and pride, which Allah condemns, throughout the program, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was condemned in many ways.

00:26:17--> 00:26:20

It's evil. We've all heard

00:26:21--> 00:26:24

of that famous Hadith, of warrior of the

00:26:26--> 00:26:31

red spell number, hardly any man Muslim, and Muslim, Muslim law of

00:26:33--> 00:26:48

the Muslim is the brother of a Muslim, a Muslim is the brother of a Muslim. It is not suppressing, nor does he surrender him. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in one narration of a Muslim in this Hadith, he also adds

00:26:51--> 00:26:52

what I

00:26:53--> 00:26:59

mean he he does not hold him in contempt, he does not disregard Him.

00:27:01--> 00:27:08

And then in a continuation of that same Hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam says, Be has been written Muslim in a shadow,

00:27:10--> 00:27:13

Muslim, it is sufficient, for

00:27:14--> 00:27:21

it is sufficient evil for a Muslim, to hold his fellow Muslim brother in contempt.

00:27:22--> 00:27:48

It's evil, to hold another in contempt. arrogance is a deadly disease. And one of the meanings of gibberish is that a person feels, senses, believes, perceives or speaks about something in themselves, which they don't possess. There's an exaggerated feeling of greatness.

00:27:49--> 00:28:00

A person can be great. But if someone regards themselves as greater than they really are. That's good. That's pride Americans and laughs

00:28:02--> 00:28:04

condemns that in the severest of terms.

00:28:05--> 00:28:11

There are many reasons for Allah azza wa jal condemning one of them is

00:28:13--> 00:28:17

to do with a person's nature. Why do we feel?

00:28:18--> 00:28:20

Why do we feel proud?

00:28:22--> 00:28:25

it's to do with our spirits, a person

00:28:27--> 00:28:30

the soul, the spirits has many desires,

00:28:31--> 00:28:51

or shall we say we, as human beings, were made up of the spirits and the flesh. Now, our flesh, our body, desires, lowly bestie all things, food, drink, and best deal enjoyment as part of our animal nature.

00:28:55--> 00:28:58

But these are transients passing things.

00:29:00--> 00:29:06

How often? How regularly how frequently and how much can one person eat?

00:29:09--> 00:29:10

It doesn't happen all the time.

00:29:12--> 00:29:15

Same with other bodily pleasures.

00:29:18--> 00:29:20

But we are also made up of the mind.

00:29:22--> 00:29:33

And most importantly, we are made up of the spirits. The rule, the spirits doesn't care. Our mind vanishes, enjoy enjoyment, entertainment,

00:29:36--> 00:29:38

mental stimulation.

00:29:41--> 00:29:45

So we will eat and drink and enjoy ourselves for the pleasure of our body.

00:29:47--> 00:29:52

Then for the pleasure and the gratification of the mind, we will engage in

00:29:53--> 00:29:58

reading, learning, entertainment, etc.

00:29:59--> 00:30:00

But what about

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

Spirit, what is the spirit one?

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

What is the soul?

00:30:07--> 00:30:18

Because the soul has a celestial connection. last panel who had the honor seas and saltless that are where you said, Oh my god, I know who I am.

00:30:19--> 00:30:22

And they asked you about the rule, the spirits,

00:30:23--> 00:30:23

the soul.

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

Say that the rule

00:30:29--> 00:30:38

is from the matter of my Lord, it's from the affair of my Lord. Allah knows best. And it has a celestial connection. Because a lot has origin stays

00:30:40--> 00:30:47

for either so we do one a foster female role here for gorilla massage. When a law created man, Allah subhanho wa Taala said

00:30:49--> 00:30:55

in the highly commercial meeting, I'm about to create men from clay.

00:30:57--> 00:30:59

That's just as body for either so

00:31:00--> 00:31:12

then when I have molded him and fashion him, want to * tofi him a row he and I have blown into him of my spirits for Carla who surgery, then you fall prostrate before him.

00:31:13--> 00:31:43

So when I have blown into him of my spirits, not the spirit of lust krishnamoorthy Allah himself but rather a spirits connected to Allah, aligned with Allah, related to Allah. That's why Allah mentions it as my spirits, not his spirits, but it's been ascribed to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he has a celestial connection, that spirits which resides in every one of us, that soul

00:31:44--> 00:31:51

is very unique, it's very difficult to understand, but the enjoyment of the rule

00:31:52--> 00:31:53

of the soul.

00:31:54--> 00:32:02

The desire of the soul is not food and drink. It's not entertainment or mental stimulation.

00:32:03--> 00:32:09

The desire of the soul because it has a celestial connection is to be made a god

00:32:10--> 00:32:14

is to be worshiped. That's what the soul wants.

00:32:16--> 00:32:20

The soul is not happy. It's not concerned with it's not content with

00:32:21--> 00:32:24

food and drink or bestehen pleasures.

00:32:25--> 00:32:27

It's not bothered about

00:32:28--> 00:32:32

mental stimulation, or entertainment.

00:32:33--> 00:32:39

Now, the soul's desire is to be worship. That's what the rule once

00:32:41--> 00:32:52

the body wants food and drink, the mind wants stimulation and entertainment. The soul has no concern for these things. The soul wishes to be worshipped, to be adored,

00:32:53--> 00:33:04

to be flattered, that's the ego to be adulated to be elevated to be locked up to, to be feared to be loved, in equal measure.

00:33:07--> 00:33:09

It wants to be God.

00:33:12--> 00:33:15

Every every one of us has a pharaoh inside

00:33:17--> 00:33:27

that soul, everybody, every one of us wants to be like Pharaoh. Pharaoh said, hon, come on, Erica, I am your loftiest Lord, I am your highest Lord.

00:33:29--> 00:33:36

There is a part of every one of us which wants to be got to be worshipped, to be loved, to be feared in equal measure.

00:33:38--> 00:33:42

And that's the cause and the seed of our arrogance.

00:33:43--> 00:33:59

We want others to be beneath us to be inferior to us. We want to be superior to everything and everyone else. And not only that, we want them to recognize our elevation, our superiority, our greatness.

00:34:02--> 00:34:07

We want everyone else to be to acknowledge that we are better than

00:34:11--> 00:34:17

the feral part and every one of us that soul wishes to actually enslave others,

00:34:18--> 00:34:40

physically, if possible, but even if physically it's not possible, then mentally and emotionally, we want to capture other people's minds and hearts and enslave them to ourselves. And if we can capture their minds, and if we can enslave their hearts, then their wealth and their provisions and their properties are ours anyway.

00:34:41--> 00:34:53

If we can make a claim on their hearts and their minds, then they belong to us and all that belongs to them, we think belongs to us. This is why this is the seed of arrogance.

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

To feel better superior than the other to want to be better.

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

superior than the other.

00:35:04--> 00:35:06

And that's exactly what he believes that

00:35:08--> 00:35:11

we may think that, oh, I don't wish to be God.

00:35:12--> 00:35:14

I don't want. I don't want anybody else to worship

00:35:15--> 00:35:19

or to serve me or to be surveilled before me.

00:35:21--> 00:35:34

But that's the height of arrogance. But the beginning of arrogance is when a person simply thinks or feels or says that I am better than him in any way.

00:35:35--> 00:35:41

And that's exactly what he believes. Last time I told him with boldenone mother

00:35:42--> 00:35:50

in law, he believes about a stockbroker and I'm no caffeine. And we said to the angels, Prostrate to Adam.

00:35:51--> 00:36:29

All of them frustrated, accepted leaves. He refused. He was arrogant, stubborn, what kind of no caffeine and he became of the unbelievers. But what led him to becoming a rebel against a law? What led him to rebel against all odds command? He refused, yes. But what led him to refuse his first sin. The first sin ever committed, wasn't unbeliev the first sin ever committed wasn't a refusal to prostrate the first sin ever committed in heaven on earth,

00:36:30--> 00:36:33

was not to dis obey a last command.

00:36:35--> 00:36:48

That was the result that was a manifestation. That was later the first sin that was committed was he believes his belief or thought and I hate on men that I am better than that.

00:36:50--> 00:36:51

last panel with Anna Aston

00:36:53--> 00:36:58

law says the medical minister god he wasn't one of those who frustrated

00:36:59--> 00:37:02

on America alert the stroke is a Murdoch

00:37:03--> 00:37:11

law say what prevented you from frustrating what I said to you straight on meaning shavon replied, and

00:37:13--> 00:37:21

I am better than Halliburton, even Noreen Wallach Domini clean You created me from the fire and you created him from clay.

00:37:23--> 00:37:28

So the fact that I am from fire, and he is from clay makes me better than

00:37:32--> 00:37:44

just because of that one thought. He refused to prostrate he rebelled against Allah. He was cursed by Allah banished forever. last panel, I told him,

00:37:47--> 00:37:49

remove yourself be banish.

00:37:54--> 00:37:55

law said it is not possible for you.

00:37:58--> 00:38:04

It is not permissible for you. And for the kabara fear that you are arrogant in the heavens.

00:38:05--> 00:38:33

Then a lot holding that indeed you are in a solid even from the lowly ones. He believes trying to make himself superior. Allah banished him cursed him for eternity and law reduced him to the lowest of the low. A lot elevates those who humble themselves and Allah lovers and bases and humiliates those who tried to elevate themselves. That's the law of Allah in the heavens on Earth.

00:38:35--> 00:39:03

Last essays al Shara Ninjago Halle Latina la Leuven fell out of the water for sada was able to attain this abode of the Hereafter, we have made it for those who do not seek loftiness or corruption on earth will give it to the pain and the beautiful consequence, the beautiful result. The beautiful outcome and Aftermath is for the people of taqwa.

00:39:04--> 00:39:23

So Allah says, anyone who desires a good position in the Hereafter, they need to be humble. For the hereafter we have reserved for those who do not see fill out of high handedness or loftiness on Earth. Anyone who wishes to be high, a lower level.

00:39:25--> 00:39:47

And anyone who is humble as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, the world of law whether is handled for the sake of a lot of local elevate, that's rule of law. That's exactly what he did. He believes all he believes did before he rebelled before he refused a last command before he disobeyed a law before he was stiffnecked.

00:39:51--> 00:39:55

His first sin was the fault, but I am better than

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

this is why arrogance isn't just about the

00:40:00--> 00:40:20

feeling of being worshipped. That's a height of arrogance. Well, before that the beginning the seed of the arrogance is to simply think I am better than that's why in that Muslim sort of last on the line, he says it's a sufficient evil for a Muslim, that he holds his fellow Muslim in contempt.

00:40:22--> 00:40:35

If anyone thinks I am better than him, whether in appearance, wealth, provisions, clothes, riches, achievement intelligence, in absolutely anything.

00:40:37--> 00:41:13

That is arrogance. last panel Adana hates those who are arrogant and proud in any way. And there's a reason for that, as I said, one of the reasons why arrogance is condemned, is because the soul wishes to be worshipped. That's why it's arrogant. In fact, who wishes to challenge a last panel with Anna in his divinity, it wishes to transfer people and move them and shift them, in fact, divert them from the worship of a lot of the worship of one's maps.

00:41:15--> 00:41:18

That's what la has original says in a verse of the Quran.

00:41:19--> 00:41:21

It is not possible.

00:41:22--> 00:41:23

It is not lawful

00:41:25--> 00:41:26

for any human being.

00:41:28--> 00:41:31

That Allah gives them a book

00:41:34--> 00:41:36

and profited and wisdom.

00:41:37--> 00:41:44

Then they say to the people, go more about the Leaning don't become my servants.

00:41:46--> 00:41:46


00:41:48--> 00:41:58

that merely muster that was slammed would never do this. So if the Amir musala refused to be arrogant in any way.

00:41:59--> 00:42:04

And they refuse to have people worshipping them at the expense of a last panel.

00:42:05--> 00:42:21

Then how is it possible for the others, nonprofits and non messengers for non angels just as a last days lanius then give them a secret in your corner Abdullah, one of them Allah makara boom, it is mercy, the Messiah.

00:42:22--> 00:42:30

Jesus peace of dominium aleikum wa salam, the Messiah will never distain will never turn up his nose,

00:42:31--> 00:42:37

at being a servant of Allah, a slave of Allah, and neither will the closest angels.

00:42:39--> 00:42:50

And then Allah says, amen, yes, thank you for only that the way you're stuck there was the actual room in a gym, er, and whoever is disdainful. Whoever turns up his nose.

00:42:52--> 00:43:21

And he's arrogant of the worship of Allah. And not just the worship in terms of Salaam prayer, or pilgrimage and charity, but of the service of love becoming a servant of Allah, then what will happen for Sasha omega gymea then Allah will amass and assemble the whole of creation by himself. Then what will happen for a min levina ama and we're gonna go slightly had for your female Judo museum and fatherly, as for those who have believed and done good deeds, allow were given the reward reform.

00:43:22--> 00:43:23

And Allah will

00:43:25--> 00:43:27

increase them of His grace and ban.

00:43:28--> 00:43:30

What Amanda Deena Stan careful was to borrow

00:43:34--> 00:43:35

money law what

00:43:36--> 00:43:51

the law says, As for those who were disdainful who turned up their noses, and who were arrogant, Allah will punish, punish them with severe punishment. And they will not find anyone besides Allah, as a guardian, a friend or an assistant.

00:43:52--> 00:44:04

That's what will happen. So the angels and the prophets Allah, he was salam, and even someone of the caliber of Isa, the son of Maria Maria, who Salam who is actually worshipped as a God,

00:44:05--> 00:44:19

who is considered divine, even He, along with all the other messengers, and all the other, all the angels, none of them wish that the creation, serves them,

00:44:20--> 00:44:40

worships them, or is enslaved to them. Since the angels don't do that, and the prophets and messengers don't do that, and even someone who was actually who is actually worshiped, is the son of Maria Marie mussalam doesn't do that doesn't want that. Then who are you and me? Who are we

00:44:42--> 00:44:50

to wish that people were *less. Now people look up to us, that people adores

00:44:51--> 00:44:57

that people's hearts and minds and their feelings and their emotions are enslaved us

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

that we win there.

00:45:01--> 00:45:08

adulation, their adoration, their favor their worship, their admiration span and

00:45:10--> 00:45:19

lots. This is why Allah has always and hates those who are arrogant, and in athletes by Muslim Rahmatullah holiness

00:45:20--> 00:45:22

and by others.

00:45:25--> 00:45:33

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and even even a manager in his Sonam This is the wording of any man humbling in his Muslim head. And this is where the

00:45:34--> 00:45:44

Muslim also laughs a lot it or some of them says these from from mobile Herrera, hold the alarm I'm at the province of the love it was seldom said Allah has the vegetal says

00:45:45--> 00:45:59

Oh, Gabrielle, what are you there? Whenever moto is early, from a naza and even Homer she minima from a Mazda and he she a minute Homer pay to houfy jam. Last time what Allah says give it a year.

00:46:01--> 00:46:02


00:46:10--> 00:46:11

is my upper gun

00:46:13--> 00:46:16

and greatness is my lower garment.

00:46:17--> 00:46:20

So whoever contests

00:46:22--> 00:46:27

for anything of these of this, I shall fling him into jam.

00:46:28--> 00:46:30

And in one duration of the Manhattan run to La la

00:46:32--> 00:46:47

la la la la wa sallam says that landlords will seize Ghibli pride as my upper garment greatness as my lower garments and whoever wishes to snatch them off me or contest me for them. But someday, I will break

00:46:51--> 00:46:58

because it's all about divinity. This is what the soul wants and the soul wishes to be worshipped. Last season the Koran

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

for eight the man in the healer era

00:47:04--> 00:47:11

in another verse, eight a minute. Hahaha. Have you seen one who has taken his

00:47:13--> 00:47:16

God has taken his desire his soul to be his God.

00:47:20--> 00:47:58

So there is a possibility of the, of the soul being worshipped by oneself or by others. That's what we want. That's what the soul wants. This is why we contest the last panel Adana, we challenge Allah in one of his exclusive attributes. A lot of xojo calls himself Allah Jabbar along with the Kabir in the famous verse at the end of sort of hash law says will love and live the law either he loves the label Shahada to what a man or Rahim will love under the La Ilaha Illa who and medical produces Salaam Amina Mohammed Aziz al Jabbar?

00:48:01--> 00:48:02


00:48:03--> 00:48:08

Allah says, He is Allah. There is no god besides

00:48:11--> 00:48:20

the Knower of the unseen and the presence, the scene. He is a Rahmani Raheem, that most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

00:48:21--> 00:48:24

He is a law that is no god besides

00:48:25--> 00:48:40

a melon. The sovereign adores the holy sanctified, a salon, the grant of peace, and what min the grant of security and more Haman, the dominance and prevalence

00:48:43--> 00:48:46

of disease, the all mighty

00:48:49--> 00:48:50


00:48:52--> 00:48:54

the grand and majestic,

00:48:56--> 00:48:59

the slaver algebra and

00:49:00--> 00:49:01

the prime

00:49:03--> 00:49:06

the How can lobby algebra.

00:49:07--> 00:49:10

And what does algebra mean? What does that mean?

00:49:12--> 00:49:14

It's related to the one who is

00:49:15--> 00:49:17

the one who makes a display of his product.

00:49:19--> 00:49:28

And what the cub bear is, as I said, earlier, kibble is to regard everyone regard others as inferior.

00:49:30--> 00:49:32

And in the case of a last panel who had the honor,

00:49:33--> 00:49:42

he he does regard everything else to be inferior, for he is superior in every way.

00:49:43--> 00:49:46

So last panel, who calls himself on what

00:49:48--> 00:49:52

Allah wants us to worship, a lot demands that we worship.

00:49:54--> 00:49:56

Allah demands that we praise Him.

00:49:57--> 00:50:00

That's why he foresaw the lust and the love. It was

00:50:00--> 00:50:15

themselves, there is no one to whom praise is more beloved than Allah. And therefore he has taught us that when we pray to Allah supplicate to make dua, then we begin, we preface our supplication with the prayers of Allah has done much.

00:50:18--> 00:50:20

Since Allah has and with the company,

00:50:21--> 00:50:26

he writes for the regard everything else as inferior

00:50:28--> 00:50:29

to himself.

00:50:30--> 00:50:41

He's also a Jabbar. Although the meaning of algebra the direct meaning is not the enslaver I'll explain what it means. Jabbar means the grand and the majestic

00:50:42--> 00:50:47

and the one who wishes to enslave others. That's why

00:50:48--> 00:50:50

a tyrant is called Jabba.

00:50:54--> 00:51:03

In Arabic tyrant is known as Jabbar, why not because he is grand and majestic, because he wishes to enslave others.

00:51:04--> 00:51:12

So Allah subhanho wa Taala is undoubtedly the one who has created the whole of creation and therefore we are

00:51:15--> 00:51:17

in service to him. We are hustling.

00:51:19--> 00:51:21

So online is eligible. Allah is

00:51:23--> 00:51:32

an anyone who challenges Allah in His Gibbon, or in his jabiru in his greatness in His Majesty is grander

00:51:33--> 00:51:38

in his right, and ability to enslave

00:51:39--> 00:52:06

others. Then he challenges Allah. He contests a lot of one of his exclusive attributes. And the last panel hoarder Allah. What will you do to such a person? If someone is humble, Allah will edify. If someone is proud and arrogant, allow it humiliate them, not just humiliate them, in that narration of an Imam ul Haq humanism was there that he says, I will break a love and break

00:52:08--> 00:52:09

in the dunya and in the us

00:52:13--> 00:52:20

because we are challenging Allah is one of his exclusive attributes. Speaking of Jabbar

00:52:21--> 00:52:21


00:52:23--> 00:52:24

Muslim to learn who they relate

00:52:25--> 00:52:27

to like normal, the alarming woman

00:52:29--> 00:52:36

and others relate the same Hadeeth even a manager relates the same had eaten his son, and this is the wording of the manager.

00:52:39--> 00:52:46

And the light of the alarm from our saves. That I saw I heard the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say

00:52:48--> 00:53:13

and this hadith is actually this was in reference this heavy is a reference to a verse of the earnings or an MBA in which a last parameter what Allah sees your monopolists America please so gentlemen, come up with a well read wagon Elena in acuna filing law essays on the day when we shall wrap up fold up the sky

00:53:14--> 00:53:35

like the scribes rolling up of the parchment in the sheets. So just as a scribe, rolls up the parchment or the sheet, a lot of days on the day, when we shall roll up, wrap up the sky, that the scribes rolling up the sheets

00:53:36--> 00:53:59

come up with that night. Oh, well, I hope and Maria, just as we began creation, we shall return it to its original states wagon Elena, it is the duty of commerce in the corner. Finally, it is a promise binding honors in that good enough. We will most assuredly. So speaking of that,

00:54:01--> 00:54:08

and in another verse of the Quran, one of the Jimmy and Pablo who Yama Yama to smile at me Amina.

00:54:11--> 00:54:16

Allah says, and heavens will be rolled up

00:54:17--> 00:54:19

in the hands of Allah

00:54:22--> 00:54:29

will also Jimmy Cobb dato and the earth, the whole of the earth will be in the clutches of Allah

00:54:31--> 00:54:32

on the Day of Resurrection,

00:54:34--> 00:54:38

and the heavens will be rolled up in his hand.

00:54:40--> 00:54:46

glorify be Allah and purified the heat of what they associate with him. Then,

00:54:47--> 00:54:59

so the province of Lahore and in keeping those two verses in mind, Abdullah him I'm one of the Allahumma essays that I heard a large messenger Salalah hiding and this was on the member saying

00:55:02--> 00:55:09

The heavens will be rolled up in the hand of Allah on the Day of Resurrection.

00:55:11--> 00:55:13

And the last panel with the ANA will say,

00:55:14--> 00:55:16

another Jabbar

00:55:17--> 00:55:19

al Jabbar whom in America

00:55:21--> 00:55:22

I am the Jabbar.

00:55:24--> 00:55:26

I'm the gram the majestic

00:55:27--> 00:55:35

a knowledge about who? We are the tyrants ala mata kabiru where are the proud and arrogant?

00:55:36--> 00:55:44

And I'm delighted no matter the Allahumma says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he was saying this,

00:55:45--> 00:55:50

he motioned with his hands. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:55:51--> 00:56:02

on the Day of Resurrection, the heaven shall be wrapped up in the hand of Allah. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would clench his hand and open it, clenched his fist and open it.

00:56:05--> 00:56:10

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, and he motion.

00:56:11--> 00:56:16

So because sometimes imagine when we hear of something great.

00:56:17--> 00:56:31

And when we speak of it, when we relate it when we quote it, we sway because we are overwhelmed and overcome by the greatness and the majesty of what we are saying, what we are relating.

00:56:33--> 00:56:52

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did exactly the same. You were speaking about last panel Adana. So I'm delighted I'm not the alarm I'm Homer says that the Prophet I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, on the Day of Resurrection, the heaven shall be wrapped up in the hand of Allah.

00:56:54--> 00:56:55

He will.

00:56:56--> 00:57:02

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam closed, opened and closed clenched and open dispersed.

00:57:03--> 00:57:50

Allah will say another Jabbar, I am the Jabbar al Jabbar whom we are the tyrants in the room. We are the proud and arrogant, arrogant ones. And then the prophets of Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while saying this, he was swaying left and right. anal animal Jabbar Anan Jabbar Hoon, Aiden with the kaboom. And I'm delighted. No matter the Lovering Kumar says that he was swaying so much to the left and right that I saw the member shaking beneath them and swaying to and fro until I asked myself that is the member actually about to collapse with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on it. That's how severely he was swayed. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:57:50--> 00:58:08

sallam Marshall Layton this said on the Day of Judgment, Allah will say another Jabbar Anan jabatan. Anan Mata kaboom. Where are the arrogant I am Jabba, we are the arrogant ones, where are the tyrants? And he was swaying while sameness.

00:58:09--> 00:58:41

So whoever is a tyrant, whoever is whoever is arrogant and proud, he challenges Allah and Allah will take care of him in the dunya and certainly in the US, and in the US for what what will be his abode? Allah subhanho wa Taala will say that the market will be Raiden Huck will be makuta Maroon Ababa Jana, mahalo Dena fee for bits of Moscow, mata kabiri. Allah will say this is because you will, you will

00:58:43--> 00:58:44


00:58:46--> 00:59:07

you are happy and joyful on earth without rains. The Throne of philology provided How will the man come tomorrow? Because you were exultant, used to struggle the band's been proud and arrogant, exalting in what you enjoy what you had. So today, enter into the doors of Jen,

00:59:08--> 00:59:46

living there in forever, for bits and month one with a bidding evil it says an abode for those who are arrogant. Allah subhanho wa Taala does not like those who are arrogant anyway. And our arrogance can be concealed in the heart. Sometimes it can be revealed in speech, and it can be revealed in our manner of walking and talk. This is why last panel, we should be careful about how we walked last panel without our season sort of bizarre what a lot of them are in the column called LG Bella Tula meaning

00:59:47--> 00:59:49

and do not walk on the earth.

00:59:53--> 00:59:57

arrogantly swaggering Stratton me

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

and one of

01:00:00--> 01:00:04

person walks in that manner, stomping their feet

01:00:05--> 01:00:06

with heavy,

01:00:07--> 01:00:09

the heavy gait

01:00:11--> 01:00:17

swaying their shoulders walking with a swagger head held upon.

01:00:19--> 01:00:26

A person walks proud and someone who walks humbly. They don't stomp their feet, they place their feet softly on the ground.

01:00:27--> 01:00:46

all I'll say is wherever the random sort of Oregon, wherever the rock man in the veniam, Sean Adams, the homeowner, and the true servants of man, the Gracious one, those are those who walk upon the earth home. Soft, lightly humble.

01:00:48--> 01:01:00

So a person who walks softly and humbly they don't walk stomping their feet, they walked very soft. But conversely, those who are arrogant, they walk hard,

01:01:01--> 01:01:17

planting their feet on the ground, stomping their feet. So that's one effect of their arrogance walking attitude, and the other is they walk with their heads held up high. So in relation to that last panel with Allah sees what Adam Schiff will.

01:01:18--> 01:01:23

Do not walk, swaggering laying strikingly upon the upon the ground

01:01:25--> 01:01:26

in the calendar

01:01:27--> 01:01:30

you will never rip the earth what am who

01:01:31--> 01:02:02

knows no Will you ever reach the mountains enhance? What do you think you what what do you see to achieve by walking hard and stamping your feet? You wish to break open the ground? You will never rip the earth by holding your head of high. What do you think he will reach the height of the mountains and look at his salon was advising his son and as part of his advice to his son. What did he say? He said what are you sorry, I have the killing nurse. What are you fill

01:02:06--> 01:02:22

in the law Hello him we're gonna mcdonnen For who? What's the machico what that means so thick in the uncut Allah swell de la Sol amin, Allah spam or manually Instagram said to his son, that in arrogance, do not turn your cheek away from the people.

01:02:25--> 01:02:32

Do not ever be proud and arrogant to not turn your cheek away from the people who will last in the long run a Muslim is said of him.

01:02:34--> 01:02:36

When he used to meet someone,

01:02:37--> 01:02:39

he would shake their hand

01:02:41--> 01:02:46

and he would never be the first to withdraw his hand from the clutch from the handshake.

01:02:48--> 01:02:51

And when he spoke to someone, he always faced them fully.

01:02:54--> 01:03:01

There was not a hint of arrogance, in his speech, in his appearance in his behavior.

01:03:02--> 01:03:08

Spot being the Messenger of Allah when someone's hand, he was never the first one to withdraw a lot.

01:03:09--> 01:03:21

And when he spoke to someone, he was never from the side. It was never with a cursory glance. It was never in an arrogant manner with stain and aloofness. Rather, he would face them fully look

01:03:22--> 01:03:23


01:03:25--> 01:03:28

And he would never turn away until the other person turned away.

01:03:30--> 01:03:45

And that was a messenger of Allah. So look, man alayhis salaam said to his son, what are the sorry, the callin nurse. Do not turn your cheek away from people in arrogance. Or he just said do not turn your cheek away. But that means in arrogance like in that

01:03:47--> 01:04:01

What a dumb chicken Oh, they murder her and do not walk swaggering the instructing me on the ground. Verily, Allah does not like any more darlin for who was the one who Swaggers

01:04:02--> 01:04:14

for who boastful purse. Allah does not like any boastful person. Allah does not like anyone who walks with a swagger in my humble racket, and luckily relates Hades in his Muslim

01:04:16--> 01:04:42

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I'm delighted to be allowing for my relates the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, many of them are phenos or without a few machete. Lucky Allahu Allah. Bam, whoever considers himself great and his soul and heart or if that is initiated, or Swaggers in his walk, he shall meet Allah. Allah is angry with him.

01:04:43--> 01:04:45

The P Allahu Allah.

01:04:50--> 01:04:52

We should fear pride.

01:04:54--> 01:04:59

And I'll come back to the commentary of this verse. But let me just mention one thing about it.

01:05:00--> 01:05:05

A believer cannot really have gibberish in one's hands.

01:05:06--> 01:05:08

Because many narrations

01:05:11--> 01:05:16

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually say isn't the same narration in the same sentence and Hadith

01:05:17--> 01:05:19

that whoever has

01:05:21--> 01:05:41

a grains weight in some narrations and must have grains weight of faith in their hearts they shall never enter the fire. Then immediately the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and and whoever whoever has a mustard grains or a grains weight of gibberish in their heart, they will never antigen

01:05:42--> 01:05:44

so what that means is

01:05:46--> 01:06:15

a person who has even a grains faith in their heart can not have any pride and anyone who has pride in their hearts even a grains weight cannot truly have faith. This habit of the alarm feared Gibbon and in my humble writing to learn only relates that once the two famous companions and the lie of nama and Abdullah Mohammed have been the Allahumma they

01:06:16--> 01:06:17


01:06:18--> 01:06:18


01:06:21--> 01:06:23

one of the two Hilux, safa and marwah.

01:06:25--> 01:06:27

In Michigan, well, near and mustard

01:06:30--> 01:06:31


01:06:33--> 01:07:13

when they both met, they conversed and then Abdullah amoureux de la one of whom are left. Abdullah Amaro de la cama remains standing there, weeping uncontrollably. So his companions asked him what makes what happened. The two companions met, they Converse briefly and delighted and left and I'm delighted no matter the Allahu Nkrumah was left standing weeping. What did he say to him what happened? So his companions asked him, that what makes you weep? So he said, he just told me that he heard the messenger Salam it was some of them say that whoever has

01:07:18--> 01:07:24

a particles weight of pride in their heart, he will not integer

01:07:26--> 01:07:32

I'm delighted to be alive. I'm upon hearing that just continued to weep, standing up meanwhile weeping uncontrollably.

01:07:34--> 01:07:35

So going back to the verse

01:07:37--> 01:07:44

our arrogance displays itself, sometimes in our speech and our gait, in our mannerisms in our way of walk.

01:07:45--> 01:08:33

When we walk, if we walk with a swagger as a proud walk last panel with Allah condemns that says do not walk in that manner, but manually his Salaam advises the son, do not walk in that manner. For Indeed, Allah does not like any more swaggering person who walks with a swagger and structs or bands. And for who someone who is boastful. Then the man alayhis salaam says to his son, what's the theme of Schick walk moderates be moderates in your ward? What would mean Celtic and reduce your voice meaning reduce the volume of your voice or suppress your voice in the incarnate swatted assault of a chameleon? Indeed, the worst of sounds is the brain of a donkey.

01:08:35--> 01:08:41

So look, man, Allah has likened excessive speech or loud speech

01:08:43--> 01:08:50

to the brain of a dunk. Why? Because sometimes excessive speech or the manner of one speech,

01:08:52--> 01:09:03

smacks of arrogance. And that's why in a hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says these later by Imam Timothy in a sullen Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

01:09:11--> 01:09:15

in limine have become a layover, acrobatic mini mage, listen, Yo, man, damn.

01:09:18--> 01:09:22

We're in LA, mini mage, listen, yo man.

01:09:26--> 01:09:26

A third

01:09:28--> 01:09:30

of the blue face.

01:09:34--> 01:09:37

Boom, boom, family, my favorite boom are the

01:09:40--> 01:09:43

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says on the Day of

01:09:44--> 01:09:45


01:09:47--> 01:09:51

indeed the most some of the most beloved amongst you to me.

01:09:53--> 01:10:00

Indeed, some of the most beloved amongst you to me, and the closest to me in setting in gathering

01:10:01--> 01:10:02

On the day of reckoning,

01:10:03--> 01:10:05

we'll be passing

01:10:06--> 01:10:08

the best of you in manners.

01:10:10--> 01:10:22

And very the most resented and detested amongst you to me, and the furthest away from me, in seating, on the day of judgment will be the

01:10:24--> 01:10:25

third third room,

01:10:26--> 01:10:26


01:10:27--> 01:10:29

room, the third room,

01:10:31--> 01:10:33

those who talk excessively

01:10:37--> 01:10:38

those who

01:10:39--> 01:10:46

affect their speech, simulate their speech, and one more failure.

01:10:48--> 01:10:58

So the Sahaba said, O Messenger of Allah, we know who that we know what a thoroughly is meaning that will speak excessively. We know what the bonus.

01:11:00--> 01:11:06

But we do not know what I'm not faking owners. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I don't want to come back.

01:11:10--> 01:11:16

So let me explain how the loss or loss of the law it says on the Day of Judgment,

01:11:20--> 01:11:28

most beloved amongst you, to me, and the closest and sitting to me, on the day of judgment, will be the best of you in manners and

01:11:30--> 01:11:31

perhaps in a coma clock.

01:11:33--> 01:11:48

And indeed, the most resented and detested amongst you to me on that day, and the furthest away from me in setting will be and in this particular Hadith, he says, three types of people. Third are those who talk excessively.

01:11:52--> 01:11:52

That's the meaning of

01:11:54--> 01:11:57

talking excessively, yapping away.

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

One of the reasons is that

01:12:02--> 01:12:04

why does person talk so much?

01:12:06--> 01:12:11

What do they have to offer? What do they have to share? When a person speaks a lot? inevitably,

01:12:12--> 01:12:20

they will read in the harvest of speech a lot and yeah, this dry, waxing dry,

01:12:21--> 01:12:23

but even with good and bad,

01:12:25--> 01:12:27

the truth and falsehood.

01:12:30--> 01:12:41

So, speaking, excessively exposes oneself to many dangers, of lying, of gossip, backbiting of the sins of the tongue of exaggeration.

01:12:42--> 01:12:43

And how stupid it

01:12:45--> 01:12:48

that's why they say, let people think you're a fool.

01:12:50--> 01:12:53

Rather than open your mouth and remove all doubt.

01:12:59--> 01:13:03

Excessive speech, exposes oneself to great danger.

01:13:05--> 01:13:11

And it's disliked. It's it's, it's ill mannered. That's why earlier on he says the best of you in manners.

01:13:13--> 01:13:16

And here, those who are speak excessively,

01:13:17--> 01:13:19

but that's a milder part.

01:13:20--> 01:13:23

One of the boom those who

01:13:25--> 01:13:27

affect and simulate speech

01:13:30--> 01:13:32

should means jaw.

01:13:36--> 01:13:42

And one more shot the ball means those who indulge in jaw wrenching speech.

01:13:43--> 01:13:45

What does that mean? Who affects speech i?

01:13:47--> 01:13:48

They speak,

01:13:49--> 01:14:04

merely to impress. So therefore they have to affect their speech. They have to simulate it. They have to actually work hard. Choosing the right words, choosing the right accent

01:14:05--> 01:14:17

with dramatic effect, all of that simply to impress people. That's why the word is related to shift shift means jaw. So it's not natural speech.

01:14:18--> 01:14:39

They have to affect it. They have to simulate it. They have to work their jaws is jaw wrenching speech, jaw wrenching speech. And in order to do there's a very beautiful phrase when people speak about this when someone effect speech simulates speech, or act in a certain way and speaks in a certain dramatic way. They say Jabra power Park

01:14:40--> 01:14:42

Jabra power power cable.

01:14:43--> 01:14:59

And that's exactly what it is shape. Shift means jaw. So when those who move and rip their jaws while trying to speak in a certain way I am you know what's included in this if someone tries to speak impressively unnatural

01:15:00--> 01:15:22

In an effective acts simulated accident, that's part of this. If someone's not naturally a speaker with a certain accent, and they do it merely not for comedic effect, not for comedy but, or hilarious effects, but they do it in order to impress others. So they're trying to show themselves for what they aren't.

01:15:24--> 01:15:33

They are included in the speech. Another aspects of one should do is those who aren't

01:15:39--> 01:15:42

lewd or offensive of speech.

01:15:44--> 01:15:45

So normally they don't swear.

01:15:48--> 01:15:52

They are not rude or lewd in their speech. They're not vulgar.

01:15:53--> 01:16:00

But sometimes when they get to get get together with others and company, and everyone's talking in a bad way,

01:16:02--> 01:16:07

they use phrases, slogans, they use words.

01:16:09--> 01:16:11

Then, to fit in with the group.

01:16:12--> 01:16:14

Not to be the odd one.

01:16:15--> 01:16:39

They will use foul vulgar language lightly others so the person is not fat ish, but he becomes what the fat fish. So he's not normally livid and vulgar, but merely to impress others. He or she actually affects and simulates vulgar foul speech, so that they can be part of the group they do it to impress others.

01:16:40--> 01:16:42

That's including the term one.

01:16:43--> 01:16:46

And finally, one would the face

01:16:47--> 01:16:55

so this harbor said Yasuda law we don't understand who the what the fake owner. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

01:16:56--> 01:16:58

Those who are arrogant.

01:17:04--> 01:17:10

Those who speak arrogance, praising themselves boasting or in an arrogant manner.

01:17:11--> 01:17:55

Not only did the So not only does Allah dislike those who are arrogant in any way, for so long, some of the love and even with some of them says such people are the most detestable and resented in my eyes, and they will be furthest away from me on the Day of Judgment. For a law hates those who are arrogant and proud because they are challenging him in his exclusive attributes of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hates those who are arrogant because it was the furthest away from his character, and being the Messenger of Allah. He disliked anyone who challenged aligning His attributes, exclusive actions, and not all in fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself used to

01:17:56--> 01:18:28

fear, arrogance and pride. And he used to regularly pray the following the law and the law of the land relates at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Muslim de la Hilaire relates this hadith and so do others. And even a manager in my humble in his Muslim, and even a manager in the southern province of the LA Valley who was selling them and delighting them. So there'll be a lot of assays that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would say, are also below him in the shade on average, along in the ministry planner regime.

01:18:30--> 01:18:31

So not a Muslim

01:18:32--> 01:18:39

in America, a lot of them in the owls are becoming a sheep farmer Virginian well, Hamza, he won, he won.

01:18:44--> 01:18:51

And then I'm delighted with the Allahu explained what each of these words meant. So

01:18:54--> 01:19:03

he says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say, Oh Allah, I seek your your protection and refuge in You from the occur shade.

01:19:05--> 01:19:10

And I seek your protection from hums is touch

01:19:12--> 01:19:13

is whisper

01:19:15--> 01:19:16

hums actually means product.

01:19:19--> 01:19:29

And it could be physically. When we say the touch of the devil, we don't always mean physical. It's just mental. So Hamza and his product

01:19:31--> 01:19:36

wonderfully, and is blowing wonderfully, and his spirit.

01:19:38--> 01:19:45

And then I'm delighted about the love and who says that the prodding of shavon is evil is madness.

01:19:46--> 01:19:59

And his blowing his and his spitting is poetry. Obviously, he's referring to undesirable poetry, one of and is blowing, which is the Latin was from says arrogance.

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


01:20:03--> 01:20:08

this is what arrogance is shape on actually blows us.

01:20:09--> 01:20:13

It blows into us. He inflates us like a balloon

01:20:16--> 01:20:18

only for a lot to put down.

01:20:20--> 01:20:26

So he believes in flights, he actually blows into us. And he makes us

01:20:27--> 01:20:30

regard ourselves as being great.

01:20:31--> 01:20:49

And we think and think that's why in a hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Let me tell me the insulin and by others, that's a man continues to be arrogant, and carries himself away. We have ever been upset. Man carries himself away.

01:20:51--> 01:20:59

In his belief, have you ever felt jabbering and until he is recorded as one of the tyrants in the book of Allah

01:21:02--> 01:21:30

and then Allah subhanho wa Taala, obviously will treat him accordingly. So men, carries himself away. And he continues to be arrogant, until the law records in in the book of the Jabarin, proud, arrogant, tyrannical. So, he believes this he blows into as he makes us believe that we are grander and greater than we really are. And what happens.

01:21:32--> 01:21:34

He inflates he bloats

01:21:36--> 01:21:44

he believes that are su la sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam actually used to seek a last protection from the blowing of shape.

01:21:46--> 01:21:49

And his spitting this refers to spitting out poetry

01:21:51--> 01:21:54

and his touch which results in madness, or in delusion.

01:21:57--> 01:22:01

That's Pamela, so many verses and so many Hardy's, which speak about

01:22:03--> 01:22:05

how dangerous it is.

01:22:06--> 01:22:40

And how arrogance can display itself in one's walk in one's gait and one speech, in one's mannerisms, in one's belief, could be hidden one's heart, but even a mustard seeds, weight of arrogance, even a grain of arrogance, even a part of arrogance. And all of these words are mentioned in the Hadith, that the best word to describe all of them denotes something being small and tiny smallness, whether you say have a grain or amphetamines

01:22:42--> 01:22:43


01:22:44--> 01:22:45

a grain of mustard,

01:22:47--> 01:22:55

or whether you say that the raw is particle, but there are actually means the smallest thing known to man, which is an atom.

01:22:57--> 01:22:58

That's why

01:22:59--> 01:23:01

philosophically it was known as an atom

01:23:02--> 01:23:03

and chemically,

01:23:05--> 01:23:07

upon the discovery of the atom,

01:23:08--> 01:23:18

even Traditionally, the atom was known to the philosophers, but it was known as the philosophical atom. And then when it was discovered,

01:23:20--> 01:23:33

chemically and in physics, they took the same name and applied it physically. So traditionally, when there was no concept of the physical chemical atom as we know it,

01:23:34--> 01:23:42

philosophers used to discuss atoms and atomism, and awesome philosophers used to discuss the same. So

01:23:43--> 01:24:29

the traditional ancient philosophical atom was known as the atom, you're simply important the same name was used for the physical atom, as we know which has a smallest particle known to man, and which itself has so much more within. But an Arabic it's the same thing that means atom, and the Arabs, even in the desert, it wouldn't just use the rock to refer, they wouldn't use the rock to refer to the smallest thing known to them. Whatever was the tiniest thing that would refer to it as x was known as data. And in the, in the shaft of sunlight, we particles that arise particles of dust, they were known as the rod as well. So that simply means a smallest thing. So Rasulullah

01:24:29--> 01:24:37

sallallahu Sallam says, Whoever has a particles and atoms weight, have pride in their hearts will never antigen.

01:24:40--> 01:24:45

pride and arrogance blinds a person. They are unable to think straight, they become delusional.

01:24:47--> 01:24:52

Throughout history if we want knowledge, if we want faith,

01:24:53--> 01:24:56

then the first condition is to remove arrogance.

01:24:57--> 01:24:59

arrogance blinds a person

01:25:00--> 01:25:06

blinds the person to knowledge blinds a person to the truth. This is how serious it is.

01:25:07--> 01:25:10

In fact, all Mr would refer to as gibberish as

01:25:11--> 01:25:20

the mother of all diseases, the source and the root of all diseases, just like it was a first sin ever committed by anyone who believes.

01:25:22--> 01:25:28

kibble is destructive. It makes the person delusional. In fact, they, they can't see things for what they are.

01:25:30--> 01:25:55

When a person is arrogant, they become delusional. In that delusion, they see truth or falsehood false of truth, if every sign is placed before them, they are unable to recognize it. Law seal their minds law seals our hearts. And they are unable to see reason they can never see another person's argument. They can never see truth for what it is.

01:25:57--> 01:26:07

And this is why throughout history in the program, as it's mentioned, all of the prophets of Allah, that opponents that pesquisas

01:26:09--> 01:26:11

their adversaries,

01:26:13--> 01:26:19

the ones who rebelled against them, and who refused to believe in them, were always the most stuck. They're

01:26:20--> 01:26:24

always the ones who were arrogant. That's a unique feature.

01:26:26--> 01:26:42

Even heraclius, we're going through the commentary of the Hadeeth of heraclius. We started it on Friday, and we will continue over the next few weeks on Friday. And it hasn't come up yet. But in mid conversation, one of the questions that heraclius asks,

01:26:43--> 01:26:44


01:26:45--> 01:26:53

who are the people who follow Mohammed? You're this man who claims to be a prophet. Are they the nobility?

01:26:54--> 01:26:57

Or are they the lowly ones? The communists

01:27:00--> 01:27:02

a surefire mercy terbaru.

01:27:06--> 01:27:15

Did the noble ones of the people the aristocracy and the nobility, follow this man who claims to be a prophet or the weak lowly ones?

01:27:19--> 01:27:20

So Abu sufian said,

01:27:22--> 01:27:37

the weak lowly ones, and he was a disbeliever. At the time, he probably thought that this will reduce the worth of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. If I can tell him that it was only the lowly weak, impoverished ones who followed him.

01:27:38--> 01:27:49

So heraclius then later reminded him of this question and said to him, I asked you, because heraclius was not only a an emperor, he was a scholar of the Christian scriptures. He was a devout Christian.

01:27:50--> 01:28:13

And he knew the history of the messengers. He knew the Bible. So he said, I asked you that did the nobility and the aristocracy and follow Him, or the lowly humble one, so you said the humble ones. And this is the case with the messengers of Allah, that it is the lowly humble ones will follow their prophets. Even Heaney and throughout the program,

01:28:14--> 01:28:21

almost every messenger has been mentioned. It's mentioned that who are his opponents, the people of

01:28:24--> 01:28:39

the prophet who Dalai Lama Center, where are the Mohan Buddha? And so the people have asked, What did they say the people of what did they say for Amar, Adam, first of all, they believe in Huck McCollum and a chatroom in Napa. Our mural on the law

01:28:42--> 01:28:44

is in a chat room.

01:28:45--> 01:28:48

They were arrogant upon the earth without just cause.

01:28:49--> 01:29:00

And they said, Man, I shoved him in Napa, who is mightier than as in strength? Do they not see that that love who created them is stronger and mighty than than strength,

01:29:01--> 01:29:03

and they would reject our science.

01:29:05--> 01:29:08

arrogance leads to Jehovah Gibbon leads to

01:29:09--> 01:29:18

arrogance and pride, lead to denial and defiance of the truth. And you can see that and almost with with every prophet of Allah,

01:29:20--> 01:29:29

the people of sila Hannah Hassan, the people of the mood whaler at home saleha What did they say? On an American living in a Roman army

01:29:30--> 01:29:36

levinas to give them an arm and a minimum attalla Muna masala hammer Samira be

01:29:39--> 01:29:41

on the Dean's Taku inability

01:29:44--> 01:29:50

and the and the people who are arrogant of his and those who are arrogant of his people of his nation.

01:29:53--> 01:29:59

They sound to the weak ones who have believed amongst them, but do you know that saw

01:30:00--> 01:30:02

It has been sent by God.

01:30:04--> 01:30:18

So we can said we believe in whatever he has been sent with. So the ones who are arrogant actually defines me and said that sarcastically sent to them, define me what you believe in we display

01:30:21--> 01:30:26

for now, and after that they went ahead and hamstrung Lee Cameron, the Sheikh.

01:30:28--> 01:30:36

So they were arrogant. This was the people of the mood. Earlier on the people of the people of Sri Bella his salon.

01:30:39--> 01:30:41

They said exactly the same

01:30:42--> 01:30:45

color Malala on

01:30:46--> 01:30:51

the Norwegian Maria Shriver, one Latina American in Korea, Tina Roden, the female Latina

01:30:53--> 01:31:01

and those who are arrogant of his people said, Oh, shame. We will banish you from our city, you and your followers.

01:31:04--> 01:31:11

Either that or you return to our our religion. So they said what even though we are compelled

01:31:15--> 01:31:16

Prophet Mohammed Hassan.

01:31:18--> 01:31:21

He told the last panel with Allah and there's a law quote some

01:31:25--> 01:31:34

way Nicola mother out whom the federal law whom Jared was around him was talk shows there were some who was stuck because think about

01:31:35--> 01:31:36

that all law

01:31:37--> 01:31:40

every time I call, and I invited them

01:31:42--> 01:31:49

so that you may forgive them their sins. They placed their fingers in their ears, and what else do they do?

01:31:52--> 01:32:06

Well, specialty Arbonne they arrogantly swept up their clothes whatsoever. And they were persistent in their disbelief was the bottom stick banner, and they were arrogant, with great hortus

01:32:08--> 01:32:21

This is a sign of all the people who oppose the Messenger of Allah alayhi wa sallam, they were arrogant. verse after verse shows us so much so that even if the truth comes before them they refuse to accept

01:32:22--> 01:32:27

speaking of Pharaoh and his people, last time with Allah says Allah.

01:32:31--> 01:32:35

Allah says, masala musawah ha ha ha ha ha ha una una

01:32:38--> 01:32:38

muy bien.

01:32:44--> 01:32:45

We sent

01:32:47--> 01:32:51

us on Haruna alayhis salam with our sons.

01:32:54--> 01:32:57

And a clear proof to Pharaoh Illa. Normally

01:32:58--> 01:33:10

to Pharaoh and his people in this assembly, what do they do for stackable? arrogance? What can Omen arlena law says and they were a proud arrogant people.

01:33:12--> 01:33:16

Somewhat so for some foreigner, well, Georgia will

01:33:18--> 01:33:24

have a solid, just a bottle of bomb I mean, we send all the signs to them

01:33:27--> 01:33:28

to farm,

01:33:29--> 01:33:44

the storm, locusts, the lice, the frogs, the blood. I asked him for some clear signs. Still. They were arrogant. And they were a sinful people they refuse to believe.

01:33:46--> 01:33:49

And Allah says so much so

01:33:50--> 01:33:56

that they actually believe that it was true but there and this was a case with many of the messages

01:33:57--> 01:34:05

that opponents knew that they were messengers they knew that they were speaking the truth. They did not have genuine doubts. They weren't unconvinced.

01:34:07--> 01:34:14

So speaking of Pharaoh and his people at last Parenthood, Allah says what your head will be heard was that you cannot have more

01:34:17--> 01:34:18

funds okay for Ghana.

01:34:19--> 01:34:43

Allah says they denied the signs of Allah was the pinata and for some drama wallula even though their hearts were convinced off. Why did they deny them, though Moreover, as when justice in spite, most importantly, were lower in arrogance in high had been high handedness and loftiness. So see what became the consequence of those who are

01:34:44--> 01:34:46

seekers of corruption.

01:34:47--> 01:34:48

And this was a case with all of them.

01:34:53--> 01:34:56

Even the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

01:34:58--> 01:34:59

of his time Allah spoke about

01:35:00--> 01:35:11

Many people that they hear the verses of Allah, but they turn away arrogantly obstinately despite knowing the truth that's what arrogance does.

01:35:13--> 01:35:19

And I mentioned earlier that every sign you see every sign an arrogant person sees still will not convinced them

01:35:20--> 01:35:33

lots a saucer before it Alenia to come borrow nothing Oh the the right and what euro cooler it will be here in euro Sevilla, Russia, Serbia, we're in euro Sevilla yet

01:35:36--> 01:35:37

I will turn away

01:35:38--> 01:35:44

from my son, those who are arrogant upon the earth, without just cause

01:35:45--> 01:35:53

someone so that if they see every sign they will never believe it. And if they see you the path of righteousness,

01:35:54--> 01:35:56

they will not adopt it.

01:35:57--> 01:36:03

But if as a path but if they see the path of waywardness, they will adopt it as a path

01:36:04--> 01:36:16

in another verse ehrlichia law at a cabin in Jabbar in this manner does Allah seal the heart of every arrogant, Jabbar tyrannical purse?

01:36:20--> 01:36:34

When a person is arrogant, they are unable to gain true knowledge. They are unable to recognize a truth for what it is. They become obstinate in their views in their opinions, in their belief.

01:36:37--> 01:36:47

And even in their behavior. That's why in sort of the bacara last panel data mentions without feeling, the pillar of that is to be fast.

01:36:50--> 01:36:50

are a bit silly.

01:36:52--> 01:36:57

But when it is said to him, Fear Allah, arrogance and sin seizes.

01:36:59--> 01:37:51

So janome is sufficient for an evil in the boat it is this verse is very telling. What he says is, like speaking about a particular person who spreads corruption on earth. And then when it's said to him fear Allah, rather than take heed rather than pay attention to the good advice and counsel being imparted to him, the person becomes arrogant, is more worried about who is speaking to him? Why is he being spoken to the manner in which he is being spoken to? Or simply, the person is so arrogant, that they are not concerned about the wrong that they are doing? But they are more worried about? How dare someone question me? How dare someone correct me? How dare someone advise me? So rather

01:37:51--> 01:37:54

than change and rectify their behavior,

01:37:56--> 01:38:02

they become more arrogant. And the arrogance and arrogance actually leads them

01:38:04--> 01:38:05

to becoming worse.

01:38:07--> 01:38:09

And in fact, this could be true for anybody,

01:38:10--> 01:38:17

even as Muslims, even in our individual daily lives, if we misbehave and someone tries to correct us,

01:38:19--> 01:38:25

rather than recognizing our faults, realizing our mistake, and rectifying it.

01:38:26--> 01:38:34

We are more incensed and indignance and offended that someone actually dares question is or advises us.

01:38:36--> 01:38:37

And so rather than

01:38:38--> 01:38:46

reverse our sin, we compound our sin. We make it worse. We add sin upon sin.

01:38:48--> 01:39:01

And in our arrogance, we refuse to listen to refuse to accept, because we are blinded by our arrogance a lot immediately then says fast Whoo hoo janam janam is sufficient for him, meaning nothing else's.

01:39:02--> 01:39:18

arrogance blinds a person in character and in mind. So they can't see truth for what it is they can't see good for what it is, they can never see that they are doing wrong. In fact, arrogance makes person so delusional. They think everybody else is arrogant and they are humble.

01:39:20--> 01:39:44

Many psychiatrists will tell you that. I know because they've said this. That's a sign of insanity, a sign of madness. A classical symptom of madness. And insanity is that the insane person thinks that everybody else is a lunatic. And they are saying

01:39:45--> 01:39:49

they think everybody else is mad. And they quite fine.

01:39:52--> 01:39:56

It's known in psychology as the projection of guilt.

01:39:59--> 01:39:59

Unable to

01:40:00--> 01:40:06

cope with the reality of one's behavior, one's character, one's true nature.

01:40:07--> 01:40:13

A person shifts that character and that fault on somebody else.

01:40:16--> 01:40:20

And it's known as a projection of guilt and it's actually mentioned in the program.

01:40:21--> 01:40:25

When we exit hottie at an unfamiliar, maybe he Berea

01:40:27--> 01:40:31

Medina, Allah says whoever acquires a sin,

01:40:32--> 01:40:46

or an, or a crime or error, wrongdoing from Miami Beach, he but he then flings it on an innocent person. So they do wrong, they steal and say, he's the thief.

01:40:48--> 01:40:52

They commit a crime on a sin and say, You're the one who's lying that

01:40:53--> 01:40:54

they are mad, and they say

01:40:56--> 01:40:58

they're arrogant and say you are.

01:40:59--> 01:41:08

And what that does is that it totally disarms the other person. It leaves them confused. in psychology, this is also known as gaslighting.

01:41:11--> 01:41:22

Where this is a reference to a film, in which the person who's mad is living with a woman. While he does, don't worry, I haven't seen the film.

01:41:25--> 01:41:39

I'm only relating to what I read about it. So what he does is, he's he's suffering from psychological problem and a character personality disorder, but his poor suffering life partner,

01:41:42--> 01:41:46

in order to mask his madness, and in order to conceal his

01:41:48--> 01:42:01

character disorder, what he does is that he engages in behavior to actually make the other person question their sanity. So what he used to do is go around the house and

01:42:02--> 01:42:06

turn light up. London's

01:42:08--> 01:42:14

on enough, and indeed, the other person soon begins to question their own sanity.

01:42:16--> 01:42:37

And they do this in order to conceal their own character, and their own behavior. So to conceal their madness, they question you repeatedly and persistently, until all the attention is deflected. And they no longer the subject of the discussion. It's you. You came to advise them and to help them and now you're doubting yourself.

01:42:39--> 01:42:56

You've actually doubting yourself. So it's known as the projection of guilt, and the more crude term is gaslighting. But the projection of guilt. That's what arrogance does. The arrogant think everybody else is arrogant. And that's what Pharaoh said to Mr. alayhis salam, he said to him, as

01:42:59--> 01:43:00

a man Well, generally he

01:43:01--> 01:43:03

put the corner lockable, Kibriya

01:43:07--> 01:43:12

he said to salesianum, what have you come, so that you can turn us away from the religion of our forefathers

01:43:15--> 01:43:16

that we found them?

01:43:18--> 01:43:29

And what's the cornella Komal Kibriya fill out, and so that you can be arrogant on the earth spamela He who said, hon camel Allah, I am your greatest Lord.

01:43:30--> 01:43:33

And he also said, Martin into the community.

01:43:34--> 01:43:41

I do not know of any god for you besides myself, he who would force people to frustrate him.

01:43:42--> 01:43:54

He says to Musa alayhis salam, you have come in order to be arrogant on Earth. That's the projection of guilt. That's what arrogance does. It makes the person delusional.

01:43:56--> 01:44:08

And that's the story of the sort of return to it later. That's what he did. With his wealth. He became delusional and said, Look what I have. He said, You know what, I don't think

01:44:10--> 01:44:11

might be the her the

01:44:13--> 01:44:14

masataka him.

01:44:16--> 01:44:22

He says, I don't think any of this will ever perish, or expire. And even if it does,

01:44:23--> 01:44:31

I don't think that our of judgments will come. And even if it does, I think that when I'm returned to my Lord, I'll enjoy more there than I have here.

01:44:34--> 01:44:38

And what happened with him alive, destroyed his possessions for him see there and

01:44:40--> 01:44:43

Allah will break the arrogant one on Earth.

01:44:45--> 01:44:51

Just as a last panel with the Allah will destroy them in the earth. Once the Sahaba of the law.

01:44:52--> 01:44:56

They were racing with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his camel

01:44:57--> 01:44:59

was beaten. It was a very beautiful camel

01:45:00--> 01:45:10

And he was beaten in the race. And that was unprecedented they had never been beaten before. So this How about all the alarming thought of it saddened and grieve that

01:45:13--> 01:45:19

the favorite camel of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was actually beaten in a race.

01:45:20--> 01:45:33

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam consoled It was his camel, but he consoled all of them. And he said to them, it is a GT upon Allah, that nothing rises in the world except that Allah brings it.

01:45:37--> 01:45:39

Every winner is a loser.

01:45:41--> 01:45:43

Every gainer is a loser.

01:45:45--> 01:45:58

Every down has its up and every opposites down. Every rise has its fall. And every fall has a chance. That's the nature of the world. Death and life, good and bad.

01:45:59--> 01:46:02

Coming in the going, the rise and fall.

01:46:05--> 01:46:22

Pain is the other side of pleasure and pleasure is the other side of pain. That's the nature of the dunya. Last Friday, most of them said nothing rises except that Allah brings it down again, for Allah alone is an early AlkaViva.

01:46:24--> 01:46:57

The lofty the gram, the high, Allah Allah, the greatest, the loftiest, the highest. All of these attributes belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala. There is nothing in his creation, no one in his creation that has a right to any of those attributes, except if a lot temporarily bestow something upon them. So anyone who seems to be greater than what they are, what will the last panel hold the honor to have destroyed in the US and love and break them in the dunya too.

01:46:59--> 01:47:04

There are so many of the so many verses of the Quran. I don't wish to prolong this any further.

01:47:05--> 01:47:31

I'll suffice with this. Speaking of and speaking what I said about learning and being unable to recognize the truth. Your mama will deal with any ma'am Timothy, but imagine others relate to them. I will caution you though the law one in which the prophets of the law hide. What happened is that without a battle, Hosni love the love and was asked by someone that how do you explain this verse in which Allah says, Yeah, you're living in an animal or an equal and full circle,

01:47:32--> 01:47:36

that datum, that concern yourselves with yourselves.

01:47:38--> 01:47:39

If you are guided,

01:47:40--> 01:47:43

those who are misguided cannot harm.

01:47:45--> 01:48:23

So the apparent meaning of the verse as understood by some was that there's no need to tell people what to do what not to do, ie, enjoying the good or forbid the evil, advise people, encourage them, discourage them, persuade them to do good dissuade them from ill. So the apparent meaning of the verses, you know, don't be concerned about anyone else. Just concern yourselves with yourselves. So one of the students have thought about pushing evil the alarm asked him. So you said you've asked the right person, for I asked the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about this verse, and he said La

01:48:25--> 01:48:43

Mancha. Now, you should enjoying the good and you should forbid the evil that's not the meaning of the verse. You should enjoying the good and you should forbid the evil. Oh yes, there does come a time when you will have to stop which is either at the shamatha

01:48:45--> 01:48:51

thora where Java Kula de la Indira for alayka because the amount of sick

01:48:53--> 01:49:06

will there in our province and the love it alayhi wa sallam said, enjoying the good and forbidding the evil until you see. And then he mentioned four things shamatha greed which is followed

01:49:08--> 01:49:08


01:49:10--> 01:49:12

desires which are obeyed.

01:49:15--> 01:49:18

And the world being given preference and everything.

01:49:19--> 01:49:28

And number four, where I just call the the Euro in the Euro, each person's obsession and conceit with their own opinion.

01:49:29--> 01:49:40

When you see that, then concern yourself with yourself and leave the people why? Because our job akula de la Emirati and another Hadeeth

01:49:42--> 01:49:56

in another generation not to do with this but in a completely different duration. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually says there are three destructive things. There are three of the most destructive traits and they are shipping with our

01:49:58--> 01:49:59


01:50:00--> 01:50:03

Were a job with Iraq in Iraq. Three of these four things.

01:50:05--> 01:50:37

Greed which has followed, desires which are obeyed, and a person's being conceited with their own opinion, what's the meaning of being conceited, obsessed with one's own opinion, quite simply this, but they're so proud, so smug, unsatisfied, so contempt with their own opinion, and so proud of it, that that arrogance that pride that conceit blinds them to everything else. They are unable to listen to reason, to accept advice, to accept disagreement. They are right and everybody else is wrong.

01:50:38--> 01:50:50

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when people are like that, then indeed you're enjoying the good, you're forbidding the evil, you're encouraging them you're persuading them, or you're discouraging enslaving them will have no effect.

01:50:52--> 01:50:54

Because now they are blind, their hearts are sealed.

01:50:55--> 01:50:58

Then you can concern yourself with yourself.

01:50:59--> 01:51:46

Pride is destructive. Its destructive in the dunya. It's destructive for a person's asset. And it's disruptive in just thought, of course, a person expresses it by words or in gait, and mannerisms and walk. That's terrible as well. We have been told not to walk with a swagger. Remember hiding the man Muslim name and others relate that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah will not look at my manacles relates to the alarm and not look at a person who drags his clothes is on his lower garments a lot in arrogance whoever drags his lower cloth and arrogance allow and not look at them on the Day of Judgment. And in another head deflated by mumble hut in Amman Muslim and some the

01:51:46--> 01:51:52

wording has merged with the previous wording. A man was walking arrogantly

01:51:53--> 01:51:55

dragging his lower cloth

01:51:56--> 01:52:10

in pride and arrogance. So Alas, and proud of himself self conceited last panel who opened up the earth to swallow him and the earth shall continue to swallow him and he shall continue to fall in the earth to the Amaya

01:52:12--> 01:52:13

because he walked with a swagger.

01:52:16--> 01:52:49

This is what the people have noted. What did they say? Mr. Graham said every time I call them so that you may forgive them. They stuck their fingers in their ears and was stuck show Thea and they swept up their clothes in arrogance. We may not fully understand this phrase, but traditionally, it's like, the longer a person's cloth, the richer they were. And there was a style where people of the nobility and the aristocracy they used to have gowns and dresses, men and women

01:52:50--> 01:52:53

were the cloth would trail

01:52:55--> 01:53:23

beneath and behind them. And this was a sign of their wealth and their richness. The poor had shorter clothes, and the Richard grand clothes they wanted to display more and more of them. It wasn't enough just to see the beautiful cloth from shoulder to ankles, the people needed to see and display that cloth that gown for longer. So they trails behind them. And sometimes I would have people holding it from the back.

01:53:24--> 01:53:45

So this was a sign of pride of wealth of position of arrogance. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his teaching was that you shorten the cloth, you do not let it drag behind you. And this is one of these people. It's known as a spiral is our meaning lengthening one's cloth.

01:53:47--> 01:54:34

Allowing one's cloth to hang. This is why insula, we need to inject In fact, the truth is for both Allah, Allah, we need to ensure that we don't allow our clothes to drag beneath our ankles, or behind us in arrogance is what's considered one of the great sins in Islam, of course, only if it's done with arrogance. But then, for someone say I am not arrogant, say something itself. I will buckle the alarm and his clothes. His clock was trading behind him. So someone pointed it out. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him in the list of the woman Wheeler, you do not do this out of arrogance, but it's a very important thing. So you know, the law when he was on his

01:54:34--> 01:54:58

deathbed, he had been stabbed in federal Salah. And with that dagger, and the wound was so severe, it was a gaping wound, that they gave him milk, and the milk even seeped out through the wound whilst he was lying on his deathbed. So whilst he was there, bleeding with any liquid given to him pouring out and seeping out of the wound, save them

01:55:00--> 01:55:13

All began receiving visitors who rat rapidly came to him. A young man came to him, and he wished to give him glad tidings, and make him feel better. So he said, Oh amirul mumineen

01:55:16--> 01:55:41

be joyful, be content for Allah blessed you with the company of last Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and with the ability to become a Muslim at a very early stage, then he blessed you with Indra, then he blessed you with the leadership of the Muslims, and then now Shahada martyrdom. So be big and joyful. It was a way of consoling him. What will say that

01:55:42--> 01:55:54

the alarms reply, he said, I only wished that of this affair of leadership, I could come out of it straight, nothing for me and nothing against me equal.

01:55:55--> 01:56:01

Then the young man rose and left. And as he was leaving, see that Barbara de la,

01:56:02--> 01:56:14

was lying on his deathbed, watching him walk away with a gaping wound, bleeding to death. And even at that stage at that moment, he said to them,

01:56:16--> 01:56:34

bring this emotion to them, bring him back to me. So they return the young man to him, and say that I would have never thought of the alarm. Why did he call him back? On his deathbed? He said to him, you haven't actually Oh, my nephew, in fact, is our rock for inner Who? Early sobek what

01:56:35--> 01:57:25

he said to him, oh, my nephew, raise your cloth it was dragging behind him, for it's cleaner for your cloth, and more fearful of your Lord of great Duckworth for your law. If this was trivial. Why would say you then I would have no power of the law one, call back a young man and enjoying the good and forbid the evil, tell him what was good for him, and advise him bosses bleeding to death, raise your cloth, for it is cleaner for your road, and more fearful of duck law for your Lord. So that's just one display of arrogance, if it's done with arrogance, but to save oneself, one should avoid it altogether. So whether one displays arrogance in one's speech and one's Gates's mannerisms, or one's

01:57:25--> 01:57:33

clothing, or whether one conceals in one's heart, either way, Allah Subhana Allah knows the truth and

01:57:35--> 01:57:36

arrogance is destructive.

01:57:37--> 01:57:44

We should fear it. We should force ourselves to be humble in as many ways as possible.

01:57:45--> 01:58:12

Whether is arrogant, Allah destroys and Allah breaks them. Whoever is lowly and humble, Allah elevates them. And in sha Allah. This leads me to the next talk, which we will continue with next month, where I'll speak about humility, and also speak about practical measures or practical advice from that how these of how we can be humble how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was humble others how about the law and humble so that we may be

01:58:14--> 01:58:25

protected from this destructive disease of giver of pride on Americans. In fact, in the world, a lot does not tolerate it in any way.

01:58:26--> 01:58:40

Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, the goodness or common law female Latina cathedra tomorrow morning is ajibade catarratto come from Tony Shea on without the Dalai Lama, but more later mood bearing.

01:58:42--> 01:58:53

Allah says Allah has assisted you in on many occasions, and also on the day of humane when your great multitude pleased.

01:58:54--> 01:58:57

Then it did not save your avail you in any way.

01:58:59--> 01:59:06

And the earth became restricted and narrow upon you. Despite its vastness, then you've turned around fleeing.

01:59:07--> 01:59:18

This is a reference to a battle, which took place known as a battle of humaine. After the conquest of Makkah, the Muslims have conquered Makkah with over 10,000 soldiers.

01:59:21--> 01:59:55

They will now rulers of Mecca and Medina, how many parts of Arabia, everyone recognize their minds and worth from Mecca? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left with those 10,000 and a few more 1000 of the new converts in order to battle with some of the major tribes who lived close to Makkah in the regions of life and the surrounding area of Makkah, etc. And the 13th the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wish to battle with them. I've covered this in the commentary.

01:59:56--> 01:59:59

And the Muslims were huge in number the great multitude

02:00:00--> 02:00:07

Well over 1012 more than 12,000 people fully armed and they had just conquered Macedon Karbala.

02:00:08--> 02:00:32

And some of us have out of the some of them looked around and thought and actually said, this day we will not be beaten for multitude. ie, we are so many and so great number of machines that we will never be beaten now on this day. And yet What happened? Initially, there were sacks upon and they suffered a huge setback. Someone saw that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was

02:00:35--> 02:00:42

surrounded, and there were very few people with him. And last Allahu alayhi wa sallam

02:00:44--> 02:01:10

fought on with some of the Sahaba of the law. But it was very testing time. Allah refers to that is our job is to come when your numbers pleased you. So since their numbers please them, Allah subhanho wa Taala reprimanded them and corrected them. And that was even when the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was with so in the dunya or in the assura, Allah subhanho wa Taala does not tolerate

02:01:12--> 02:01:46

a lot does not tolerate pride and arrogance. Anyway, a lot breaks the proud and arrogant and in the US, they're reserved abode will be Gentlemen, I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah protects us from this destructive sin and disease. And I pray Allah makes us amongst those who are humble for his sake. So that alarma may elevators with a true rank both in the dunya and in the US, or something remarkable similar to what I saw in the Vietnam War and early he was in panic a lot and will become deconditioned or later, he learned
