smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah what Allah Allah He was a big marine back Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh I welcome everyone to Ramadan reminders Episode Number 12 and for this episode, I direct you to sudo to the mat is number 100 in which Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah

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

says Allah yester will hobby through what ye bolo RJ Baca cathro to LA hobby

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

La Jolla

00:00:36--> 00:00:39

de la bella I like to flee.

00:00:40--> 00:01:25

Allah subhanho wa Taala, he reveals and says, say, not equal of the evil and the good, although the abundance of evil might impress you. So fear Allah subhanho wa Taala are people of understanding so that you may be successful. In this particular area, Allah subhanho wa Taala highlights for us a universal principle, a principle from the principles of life yet another principle, from the many principles we've been sharing every day, this Ramadan, and this principle states law, yes, that will have you through a pipe, this principle states that evil cannot be equal to good,

00:01:26--> 00:02:19

in no shape, and in no form, can evil be equal to good? Or can good be equated with evil? Right, not in substance, not informed, not in meaning, not in reality. And it shouldn't be the case even in the minds of men, and that's also and men and women in the minds of the human being. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says for Allah Yeah, LDAP fi allow people of understanding if you are a person of understanding, you can never, in your mind, equate evil to be the same as good to you can never equate impurity to be the same as purity or vice vice versa. Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us this in his book in sort of meta is number 100. And there's many lessons that we can take from this

00:02:19--> 00:02:39

brothers and sisters in Islam, just based on the norms and realities of the lives that we live in this principle that I'm sharing this Quranic principle brings about inspiration to different circumstances and situations that a human being may find himself or herself. In.

00:02:41--> 00:02:44

The first area that we can discuss,

00:02:45--> 00:03:35

in relation to this principle is the importance of good earnings and ensuring that we consume hallette because halaal cannot be the same as heroin, and heroin cannot be the same as heroin. You cannot equate the two and what you consume will become part of you. If you consume Hillel, then you will be held and if you consume Haram, then you are making haram part and parcel of yourself and your life. And Allah subhanho wa Jalla. He addresses the Quraysh who said in the malbay or mithril Riba that indeed selling, buying and selling and trade is the same as Riba, what's the difference? What's the difference between buying and selling? Right? We buy and sell and make a profit and then

00:03:35--> 00:03:55

we give our money out and we make a profit on it as well. When we lend losses we're heading of love will be our Hara mareeba Allah says Allah has made trade halal and has made interest Haram. So they can never be the same. If Allah has done this, they can never be the same. And if you think that the same, then you lack understanding.

00:03:56--> 00:04:28

So Allah says, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, be God conscious of Allah fear Allah, or people of understanding, don't make two different things like, don't do that. And the Sharia is not primitive in its ability. It's highly sophisticated. And that is why the Sharia will never make to same things different in ruling and two different things. Same in ruling, right. Some people ask me about, you know, beatboxing and these computer generated acoustics that present sounds

00:04:29--> 00:04:59

that mimic musical instruments, but they're not musical instruments, and can we use them? And the answer to them is, you can take a law, you can take the Sharia, if you are going to, through your computer generate a sound that is the same as the sound of a guitar or the sound of a piano. And the sound of a guitar and a piano is how long do you think the sherea will say that that sound? Because it didn't come from a physical piano or a physical guitars gonna be Hello? Absolutely not. The ruling is going to be shared. Right? Because the

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

In a sophisticated you can trick the Sharia and say okay, so the Gita, we know why the Gita is haram, we know why the musical instruments are Haram. Now if you're going to mimic the same effect of the instruments through some other instrument, don't think you're going to take the Sharia into making that sound. Helen, Lester will help you through a pipe. Right, you can't equate evil to,

00:05:25--> 00:05:26

to good and

00:05:27--> 00:05:39

that which is impure to that which is pure, and that which is halaal of that which is haram to that which is heroin and so on and so forth lies that will help you to obtain so this is the first lesson, look after your earnings do not

00:05:41--> 00:06:15

do not conflate matters so that you trick yourself into believing that this Haram is halal. This impure matter is pure. Right? So that you look after your earnings. Right? Sometimes we have this concept of kickbacks. And some people justify bribery in deals that they make. Right? fear of loss of Hannah who fear Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this is this is a point brothers and sisters in Islam. The next point Allah subhanho wa Taala says wello agenda, Angelica Catholic Al Habib,

00:06:16--> 00:06:30

Allah says that the good will not be the same as evil, even if the there is an abundance of evil. Right? And because it's abundant, it begins to please you or impress you.

00:06:31--> 00:07:14

Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us here that that which is impure and haram and evil, even if it exists in abundance, it will never equate to good it'll never be the same as that which is good and haram and pure. Remember this and some sometimes people put put this discussion to say, you know, but everyone's doing it. You know, everyone's paying the bribe. Everyone's doing the kickback. Right? Everyone's trading like this, as if everyone's doing it and they're making gains and making headway and the profits are beginning to impress you. Are you going to now conflict that harm, conflict, that haram conflict, that impurity, conflict, that evil and make it good?

00:07:15--> 00:07:17

Allah says, never

00:07:18--> 00:07:58

take this principle from the Quran, it will never ever happen irrespective of your action irrespective of how many people are doing it irrespective of cognitive dissonance. Remember, we discussed this the other day, where you you, you give yourself enough excuses to justify right your wastefulness to justify your lack of rigor, your lack of piety, nothing will change it with a law, evil will always be evil. irrespective of what you what you what happens to it, it will never ever be the same as that which is Pew and Helen and good to take this principle brothers and sisters in Islam and as an action point, let's think of our own activities and our own lives, our character,

00:07:58--> 00:08:38

our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala our relationship with those close to us those further from us, with our communities, and let us look at all the different roles that we hold, and look at our actions and understand, have some understanding, right? Let us grade our actions and understand whether they fall under the column of sleep, or the fall under the column of hobbies. And if they'll protect us we have something that falls under the column of hobbies, then let us decide now that it will never ever be played. But we need to make up do out from now and a strong intention to get that hobby out of our life and out of our system. Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us and forgive our

00:08:38--> 00:08:52

mistakes. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala improve our affairs. I mean, you're right I mean, this is the lesson for today. Is that will help you to what babe until next time, Salaam Alaikum alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
