How to maintain ourselves especially in crises in times of crisis as well. We see people going on social media, Facebook and Twitter, and just Masha Allah, somebody is so emotional, they need to get it out. You know what, we go to Facebook and we just start taking it out on our page.
We go on Twitter, but Twitter only gives us 160 letters. And Facebook is unlimited. So we go and we start and start pouring our heart. Who said Facebook was a place for you to pour your heart? Firstly, secondly,
you pouring your heart and other misguided people are misinformed people are going to see what you say and add fuel to the fire
help you in
a view that you have that might not be correct or, or a behavior that you have that is not ideal, or a habit that you have that is not from the Islamic models medicine ethic. It's like generalizing going and say that Jews are like this and so on and so forth. Somebody will say yes. And they'll probably say something worse than you. So what you've done is not opened a platform for other people to make mistakes. Right? We said we shouldn't be emote emotions. Yes, we know it's human nature to be emotional. But but but what do we say? We keep our emotions in check using our mind and we keep our minds in check using the [???]ty the mind the intellect is used behind the screen of the Sharia.
Is that clear? This is what a man necessitates. Right? So we shouldn't do this. Stop going and voicing opinion in an academic forum. Facebook is social media is for you to go and hang out, not for you to go discuss theology, unless you're discussing it with the right people. You have a group of people who understand understand the principles of the Quran and the Sunnah. And when you go astray or make a mistake, they can correct you, not help you in going astray and go more Australia themselves. So be careful brothers and sisters, we must be careful, we must ensure that we are people that plant good seeds, never ever plant seeds that seeds of misguide us, because if we cause
people to become lost, the sin of them becoming lost also comes back to us. If you instigate to harm everybody who does have because of that which was instigated, you will get a share of it. We Allah protect us. We Allah protect us, we would want to carry the burden of other people's mistakes. So we should be extra cautious not to do that which gives credence at the foundation to people making mistakes. We Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. I mean, we should be people that come with the voice of reason. We should be people that come with sanity, with clarity with common sense amidst confusion. Why? Because we have what I told you yesterday that which Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam left behind as a means of our guidance to fecal matter in Temasek to be lentil the lubar the Aveda Kitab Allah He was sitting at Len Tobin Lu, by the by that you will never ever ever go astray irrespective of which century you are in an irrespective of circumstance if you hold steadfast to these two sources, which are these two sources, the Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding, we are not people of emotion.
