Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While early he was so happy he was seldom at the Sleeman kathira lamb Deen back. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu. Everyone I welcome you all to episode number 20 Ramadan reminders, this Ramadan, the year 1440, after the hedger of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to Medina and today we take yet another principle and I take you to sudo to the majority Ayah number six, Allah subhanho wa Taala says either a confessor can be number infected by young, either j or confessio can be number in fact a bagel. If an unrighteous person comes to you with information, you
should verify it. If an unrighteous person comes to you with information, you should verify it and this is part of the larger is Rodolfo jurati which Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you have Latina man who in
confessio been a bit fatter by
fatter but ya know. Toshi boo,
boo Johanna fotospeed.
For us, l to D mean Allah subhanho wa Taala says O believers addressing the home of Mohammed Salah Allahu Allah, he was telling them, if an unrighteous person comes to you with information, you should verify it. Else you might inflict harm on a people in ignorance, and then end up regretting what you have done. Now, this particular idea has a reason of Revelation. And
once you hear the reason of revelation to say Subhana life only we adopted this life principle in this ayah life would be much simpler, much easier, and much more relaxing. What happened? Why was this I revealed? Well, it is stated that after the Battle of blue masala, which was in the 50 after hegira, we are 1440 years after this battle took place in the fifth year of the Hydra. The Mr. electribe was defeated, and they were taken as prisoners and all the members of the tribe were divided and shared amongst the Muslims of Medina. And at that time, slavery was a practice and they were wisdoms for Allah subhanho wa Taala not abolishing it, but rather managing it and that will be
a discussion for another day. Right and we mustn't forget that even though someone was a slave, but in a Muslim home, they were treated like a guest. They were treated admirably just like the prisoners of war were treated like proper guests in five star accommodation even though they were prisoners.
So now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, once they were divided the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam then married the daughter of the king of, of this tribe of Banu, Mr. luck, and her name was the mother of the believers. She became the mother of the believers after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam married her jewelry, right. She was the daughter of this meaning what we now would say the former king of the Muslim tribe, and his name was al Harith. Now after this happened, after he married her sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this is probably the greatest wisdom. We also have the felt ashamed to have the relatives of the prophets wife as the slaves. So what did they do? They
freed the rest of the tribe, all the Sahaba freed all the people of this tribe that were placed as slaves under them. And then after this happened, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advised for the hour to be given to them for them to be invited towards Islam. And obviously if they accept Islam, then they have to pay zakat. So they accepted Islam, and now they have to pay zakat. So what happened? The province of Allah Allahu wa sallam told the head of this tribe but Hadith that I'm going to send as a car collector, messenger to you, you gather this account from your people, and I'll send the collector and when he comes, pass him the saga, but for one reason or the other, the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam delayed in sending this account collector and and how it became a radio Subhanallah maybe we did something wrong. Maybe the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is not happy with us, maybe maybe maybe. So what did he do? He said, Let's get a group of people together. Let me create a committee and we go together back to Medina and meet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and see what happened. Now in the meantime, while they were having this discussion, and Harris and his committee, in terms of what to do the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam chose his as a car collector and will even aucuba and said go and collect the Zakat from an Harith now when
Waleed was on his way, someone came to him and said to him that you know what, a group from banjo Mr. Lick have left Harris and a group of people have left and you know what they have set out. And
he sort of gave the impression that and Harris has sort of put an army together and this and they come in
For the Zika collector, and they wish to the to inflict harm on the car collector. So immediately, he became afraid and he ran back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he ran back to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam for one reason or the other, he communicated what happened to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the form of saying that Harry's refused to give the sucker and he threatened his life. Oh no, this is a problem. This is this is a problem. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as the leader, what did he do? He put a group together of people, and he dispatched them. He said, Go and deal with an Harith so he put a group of his companions together
and they went out. And when these companions went out, they met and Harry's and his committee, and then they handler, no fighting took place. They came back to Medina, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, questioned Harris, and he says, Why did you try to kill my messenger and Al Harith replied and said, I swear by Allah, I swear, I did not even see him. Nor did I know of you sending him I was actually worried, you know as to why you didn't send him a prophet of Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed this ayah that if
a person comes to you, a person who's not trustworthy, or he's now showing signs of not being trustworthy comes to you with information verified before a disaster is is created before an army sent to meet a group of innocent people inviting breaks out and innocent life is taken. Just because information wasn't verified. Now, there's many lessons from this brothers and sisters in Islam. Firstly, obviously, the lesson that is being screamed out at us a principle from the principles of life, verify information, don't just hit the forward button, a message comes to you on WhatsApp that, you know, charity so and so they they they stealing your money immediately without verifying
we forward the message. We don't even know who wrote the initial message. But we forward the message. And what do we do we bring harm to this chatter charity that is actually doing good work that is actually diligent with your money, La quwata illa Billah. Why? Because we didn't verify now in another confirmed recitation of this ayah. Allah says feta. feta means
which means to verify that the information is correct. Number one, and then cabezon. w means to understand what the what the verified information now means. So when we look at the two karate together, we get here two lessons that there's two requirements as a universal principle from the principles of Allah. There's two requirements. Whenever information reaches you verify that it's authentic, and then understand what that authentic information means. Now, it happened at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once he was working with Sophia at night, and someone saw him and started rushing. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam stopped that person and said in
the house of ear, this is my wife, Sophia. He knew sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that this person, he has authentic information that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was walking at night with a woman, this is authentic, but he didn't understand what that authentic information meant. What was the reality of it? He didn't do it. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam stopped him and clarified what the authentic information he had meant. So there's no need for you to rush into anything. There's no wrong here. Right? And we know Medina had people all trying to bring down the messenger, sallAllahu, Alayhi, wasallam, as well, they were hypocrites there was
the Jews. And sometimes generally, it's not even anyone trying to bring you down. It's just you become a victim of your your your habit, you become a victim of your character you have she upon she thought was supposed to you something and you say something to someone else. And then this whisper becomes a sort of voice. And then all of a sudden, these rumors start spreading, what are the beliefs and we bring harm? All because, you know, we didn't verify the authenticity of the information. And then when the information was verified, we didn't understand what it meant. For example, you see someone drinking in the in a juice, for example, or drinking some milk or drinking
some water in the morning of Ramadan. So now that's correct. You know what you saw your eyes didn't lie to you, right? But are you allowed to go share that information? No, you need to understand what this authentic knowledge that you have means maybe he's sick. Maybe he's a traveler, right? So there's no need for you now to say anything. There is no wrong being done. You Allah subhanho wa Taala grant is the understanding a principle from the principles of life whenever someone comes to you with information number one, authenticated number two, understand what it means.
You know, data is data, it only becomes information when it's processed, when it's verified. Remember this brothers and sisters in Islam especially since Allah subhanho wa Taala, promises to ask us on the day of pm for everything we say and everything we write. And let me add to that everything you fold on WhatsApp, and Facebook and any other social media application that you're using. Allah subhanho wa Taala correct our fears, our fears and grabbers the understanding, I mean, Salam Alaikum alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
