So Allah subhanho wa Taala or this Jew, he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and say they have, they swear by the characters of the Prophet said don't say by the Kaaba but say why don't bill Kaaba I swear by the Lord of the Kaaba. Then he said that they say Masha Allah Masha it as Allah wanted and you wanted when something goes in your favor. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam corrected them, because wow in the Arabic language
to there being two matters
of say of the same presence in the sentence what's before the ah and what's after the Allies? Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Almighty. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said don't use while useful ma Masha Allah sama [???], firstly, it was the will of Allah and then what you desired and then not and what you desired and then what you desired, right? It drops you it drops you a level so Allah subhanho wa Taala there's no partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala if you wanted something and Allah didn't, it would have never happened.
But when you say what Allah wanted and what you wanted, it gives the impression that it happened because you wanted it. Even if Allah subhanho wa Taala did not will it so this is wrong? Does that make sense? Brothers and sisters, right? Does it make sense? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to say what Allah willed and then what we desired,
but what we desire means nothing if Allah subhanho wa Taala does not? Will it
wahoo elka Hiroko carry bad as we had in the Salah allies, the irresistible
allies in control of everything. subhanho wa Taala.
So we learn from these lessons to be just this is very important. Brothers and sisters, we need to benchmark ourselves against this lesson. How just are we in our lives? How just Firstly, we have an issue when we speak. we generalize this is not from being just we generalize you know these people, they're like this No, not everyone is like that.
Not everyone is like that. Social media, everybody's venting this nation. No, it's not this nation. It's a group, it's a select few be just in what you say. Be just in what you say. Secondly, we see in society, people who might be jealous of somebody, or somebody who might have made a mistake. And now you've taken an issue with this person, somebody else comes and praises them mentioned some good which they have done. And in fact, it is good. But you come out negative. You try and bring that good down. Why? Because of this prejudice that you have against this person or this jealousy, it could be prejudice, or it could be an issue because they made a mistake in the past. So you don't
want to see anybody say any good about them. You might not know it, but you have a tendency of always putting them down. Somebody praises them and you you come up with now it's not like that. It's nothing special. That's a special, you know, somebody else needed it like this. You know what he did? I could have done it with my eyes closed. Right? This is wrong. This is wrong. If this person has made a mistake, he's made a mistake. And now he's done something good. Acknowledge the good here Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us a lot about idolatry and, and the evils of disbelief in the hereafter and the reality of the Quran. But here we see him praising the Quraysh
sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This was a point worth praising he praised it. This is from being just my dear brothers and sisters. So benchmark yourselves against this. Where do we live with these two scenarios that I've set? When people praise others and we have an issue with them? How do we respond?
Ask yourself and if it's not right, you have a problem. There's some you have an oppressive nature, you got to fix it. oppression is not just dropping bombs on innocent people. It's so many types. Right? Right. And charity begins at home. If you want to fix oppression in the world, fix the oppression within yourself first and become a just person first. Right? So this is what we learned. And brothers and sisters in terms of just speech and unjust speech. Then today Subhanallah we see a sickness
in shout lights a small say inshallah it's it's amidst the sickness ism. It's a small group of people, but it's where they criticize the art and where they criticize the scholars, and where they they criticize the old ama and they criticize the Imams. The man made a mistake. He's not infallible. He's a human being. What happens we start running around the community needed to
Stop going to this Masjid, we need to stop going to this dance. You need to stop listening to this person, this person has this mistake and that mistake and so on and so forth. You know those people, you know the Warner Brothers
everyone knows the Warner Brothers or
not that Warner Brothers that you thinking about.
Right? We need to be careful brothers and sisters. Hey, you guys caught on late. You guys are slow. I don't know what's going on. He didn't he didn't have if there was just a Melvin thing.
I'm sure our brother knows the Warner Brothers.
Right We start warning running around society being unjust in our speech, the person has 99% good 1% is a mistake.
And we running around making as if this person is 100%, bad Subhanallah and then we try and justify it. And we say you see the scholars of Hadith. They had this thing called judge Fatah de la cama. Now you've become a big scholar now Masha Allah, right just with Daddy, they say this is from the from the science of Hadith,
where we endorse people.
And with regards to others, we mentioned their house, so people know where to take the knowledge from and where not to go with a nebula jar. This is a science stop belittling the science. This was a science and it worked because of necessity to look after the message of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and even the way it was done, it was done in a scholarly way, in an academic way, with the adapt the man is the model the etiquettes don't take something so noble and so precious, and applied to your oppression. This is even this is also oppression. When you what is justice, Justice is putting the right thing in the right place. oppression is taking something and putting it
in the wrong place. Right. So when you take something so noble and applied
to your misguidance and mistake, then this is taking something and putting it in the wrong in the wrong place. This is another oppression.
We need to look after our tongues brothers and sisters and we need to look after our hearts we need to be just I'm not saying that if somebody has an established mistake, and a scholar says look so and so he's a good speaker, but he has one or two issues, these issues Be wary of. Right. You've heard it from a scholar, you came to a community and you educating this community that's fine.
But what did I say? you're educating them you're not causing fitna the difference between educating that so and so has a mistake. Right? This is his mistake, you come with the proper etiquette.
But you know what, in 99% of his message is good benefit from him this issue here, perhaps don't listen to it, but take it from another teacher. He has like weakness in it. That's fine. But when you go about unjustly criticizing the person, making them public enemy number one, you got to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala. You got to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so once again, don't get me wrong. I'm not saying we shouldn't highlight a mistake if there is most definitely a mistake. But understand, be fair when you do it. And look after the manners, the morals and etiquettes this was from the way of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Another scenario can be shared with your brothers and sisters here.
And that is sometimes we have a person who is misguided, like the kurush. And then something good comes from them. And we shoot it down. Why? Because of its origin, because of its origin, health and food teaches us that this is wrong. healthful food teaches us that this is wrong. If the person said something that was beneficial, and the Sherry I supports it, it doesn't contradict the Sharia. And this is the most evil person around we don't shoot what he said down because he is the most evil person around. We separate between what he said and him as a human being. This is from being just as well. So take heed my dear brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. And we Allah
subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding. I mean, I mean you are behind me.
This is the month of taqwa. By the way my dear brothers and sisters and from the means of acquiring taqwa is by looking after your tongue. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you are Latina. Allah wa kulu Colin sadita Oh, you who believe? Oh, you who believe. Be God conscious of Allah. Be people of taqwa. How can you be a person of taqwa wa kulu. Colin said EDA and say a word which is upright and has no crookedness in it. call a spade a spade, and in Africa as we say, not a big spoon.
call a spade a spade and not a, a big spoon. There should be no crookedness in your speech. Be straight, be straight. worku Colin sadita. This is from the means of acquiring Tacoma lawmakers, the people of taco I mean, we also learn brothers and sisters from this great event
during the life of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam the importance of being the first helpers of every proactive effort, even if the initiator of the effort is a non Muslim,
even if pay attention to this, especially we live in, we had a Muslim minority, right? We under the patronage of a country that that looks after us as Muslims as well. They've allowed us Masha Allah to have this masala to praise and worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and have talks like like these. Not so has Australia not allowed that. Right. And that's why as Muslims we should, we should be the first people to thank not take it for granted.
This is the mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala that we can do it and it's Allah who inspires, but we should also thank, you know, how we get together and write petitions. To combat oppression, we should also get together 100,000 200,000 thank you letters and send it to the government. Thank them for allowing a safe passage into the country, allowing us security in our stay, allowing us job opportunity. Right, allowing us to pray Juma SubhanAllah. The commercial our full the masjid is on Juma. The first Juma jumar. I had was last week that the crowds were going out of out of the out of the venue. Right? People come in pray, well, hamdulillah we can have talks such as these. Right, he
should thank you should get 200,000 letters together and thank show the way of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The problem is good people don't want to show the good.
And people who've gone astray. May Allah guide us all. They do what they do misrepresent Islam. And what happens.
People don't know any good to refer this bad or to benchmark this bad against. We haven't given them anything. We haven't shown them anything about Islam.
So we learn from healthful food, that when something good happens, even if a non Muslim initiates it, go forward and support it with your time, with your wealth with your energies going support it how do we learn this Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself said after he became a prophet, if this had to happen again, I would go, I would support it. Allahu Akbar initiative of the nun was isolators. He says I will support it. Because this is good. This is good. If no Rahim Allah in no time, I want to backup my statement in case somebody says, Who is this person speaking, we hearing something strange. Unfortunately, to some of us, it's strange that many of us think
like this. Right? epilobium says Rahim Allah, this is a rough translation for you that we should help and support the work which the Sharia is a supporter of even if it is done by idolaters, even if it is done by people of Buddha, even if it is done by sinners, and even if it is done by people who are known to be oppresses. If they do some form of work, that the Sharia supports and considers to be sacred, you should be there to support it, not supporting their sin, not supporting the disbelief, not supporting the idolatry, not supporting the oppression, but supporting the good work that they're doing. That is being just where you separate between them.
And that which has been done.
And if you need convincing. See the books at Alma add volume three page 303. I just came to know recently that it's that there's a
pretty full translation of that and bad and it's sold in a bookshop in Sydney. Right? four volumes been translated. They've just left out the poetry and slightly abridged, right, read it. Learn about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Especially now My dear brothers and sisters were lucky we live in an age of confusion. We live in an age of confusion. This is I don't want to get into details is beyond the scope of this classroom to talk about what's happening right now in the Middle East and so on and so forth. It's beyond the scope of this classroom.
But we this is the time when we need to learn. Learn the sear of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, learn what he taught us with regards to fit now, with regards to fitna and what
Is fitna? What is fitna when you can't differentiate between right and wrong and what you should do, the books of Hadith have dedicated chapters dedicated towards towards Phaeton, trial and tribulation, and the Muslims position from this trial and tribulation, what is expected of them. This is not a time to be opening, our mouths yapping away, speaking from emotion, claiming things to be right and wrong, based on emotion and no evidence. This is not the time for that my dear brothers and sisters, this is the time when we keep silent and let the scholars guide us.
This is what we this is the time to do so brothers and sisters, it's beyond the scope of the classroom, but I don't want to go in but since we have a slight correlation towards saying
it mandates that a little bit he said, right. It mandates that a little bit. He said, this is the time to learn what does allow one of me in this time, I am a Muslim, submitted to the will of Allah not to to my emotion, not to my ego, not to society, not to peer pressure, who I am a servant of Allah Islam. reefer Yes, we say peace, it means peace. But it also means is this lamp to submit to the will of Allah in the second that you are in. What does Allah expect of me in the second and some of us have had Allah start commenting on matters worldly matters as if Allah made us representatives of these matters. And place the obligation of speaking about them on our shoulders. Allahu Akbar,
you know what a mighty Wait, it is to speak about these matters, and how answerable you will be in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you say the word without knowledge, so I speak, if you know the repercussion of your speech, well folia could hire an odious but whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day mercy a good word, or remain silent. Take heed my dear brothers and sisters, this is of utmost importance. Now, when we learn how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us to stand up for those proactive efforts, those actives, those efforts which the Sherry are considered sacred,
even if a non Muslim does it? What about when a Muslim does it? What about my dear brothers and sisters, when a Muslim organization is doing that which the Sherry are considered to be sacred? What should be your position and my position from this?
How many times do we see today? The organization has to come and beg brothers sisters help us. brothers sisters help us?
Then we pledge we say okay, and then we don't follow through with the pledge. They call you up a few months later, Brother, you pledge this pledge. Now I've changed my mind, you know, things are tough, and so on and so forth.
Shouldn't we be celebrating the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And going forward, and asking them what help do you need before they ask for help?
For the sake of Allah Subhana who were to add, right? How many times fundraisers have to happen? How many times and how many times and how many times how many times do you have to see after the Juma program after this program after that problem, brothers come forward assist brothers come forward assist brothers come forward assist.
Look at Candela confy rasulillah he was sweating hustler you have in your messenger, the Messenger of Allah the perfect example the perfect pattern, the perfect role model. This is who he was brothers and sisters.
You know, brothers and sisters.
life wasn't meant to be so this comfortable.
wasn't meant to be discomfort. This is you know, we, you get what I'm saying? It's subtle. It wasn't meant to be just about you and your wife and your kids and the school fees is paid and the bills are paid an average job, buy a nice car comfortable car, I go to work, I come home, I'm relaxed. Everything is hunky dory. Right? I'm saying hunky dory because the fish shop here in Melbourne is well known, right?
Everything is well.
And comfortable. Life's comfortable.
My neighbor is suffering doesn't bother me. In fact, I won't even try and look as long as this sphere of influence of mine is okay. So my problem, the no care attitude, the no care attitude. I went to the UK once and I heard a statement.
I can't be asked
that whether it's proper English or not, it's something else but I understood what the person was saying. You know, when somebody's saying
can you do this, I can't be asked
I'm saying it a bit better where I pronounce the T but you know the T is get you know, I can't be asked you know?
This is not the speech of a Muslim. This is not the speech of him. I can't be asked. Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Do you do you think gender is cheap? Did you not hear Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam say Allah. Allah Hania, the merchandise of Allah is expensive. Did you not hear that? The merchandise of allies expensive, it requires you to come in the cold in the dark of the night to the masjid and observe the salah
and the Quran, it requires you to put cold water on your hands, even though you dislike it. It requires you to give you a wealth. Even though you are attached to it. It requires it requires the merchandise of Allah is not cheap. I can't be asked, Are you guaranteed Jenna that you can't be asked me Allah forgive us for life. We are selfish brothers and sisters. We are selfish. You know the kurush isolators. But what did they show? selflessness not selfishness. They made somebody else's problem their problem? And what did they do? An entire packed an entire constitution came about because one person was oppressed La Ilaha Illa. Allah? What about you and I today? How many
operations do we allow to happen? How many will we allow to happen? Before we stand up and say in the 21st century, enough is enough. Enough is enough. We need to stand up against this. This is oppression with the Islamic etiquettes moral man is of course, but we got to stand up. This is my problem. If I'm sleeping comfortably at night, and these problems exist, there's something wrong with me cry to Allah tend to Allah. Is this the way your parents brought you up? I hate to think so. If this is your case, then you've also done an injustice to the honor of the upbringing that your parents gave you. Because by a lie, I don't think any parent will bring up their child to be
selfless, to be selfish. Rather, they bring them up to be selfless, selfless, they teach them values. This was the way of Gambia and he was Salatu was Salam. We love for our brother let me know I do not know if you truly believe none of you truly believe
until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself. Yeah, Allah. Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam What an amazing teacher he was.
And how deflated are we May Allah forgive us? We're lucky. We have been given our messenger his Huck, we have to Allah even when we say his name, how many saints Allahu alayhi wa sallam even in saying sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which is a right from his rights. Allah has Allah has made it compulsory upon us to say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when the term Mohammed he said, How many of us practices right of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Remember the other day I said brothers and sisters, you know what our problem is? We have data. We don't have informed knowledge. We have data raw information is not knowledge. We say Muhammad Rasul Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, Muhammad
Rasul Allah, you know, it is on the tongue. It hasn't crossed the collarbones. It hasn't gone into the heart. Our actions do not show Muhammad Rasul Allah, our speech does not show Muhammad Rasulullah we are not walking the talk brothers and sisters. What does Muhammad Rasulullah mean? What does it mean? It means I will be on this earth the way Allah wants me to be as taught to me by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is your homework today, my dear brothers and sisters, go home and ask yourself, get a big sheet of paper and ask yourself, Am I in this world as per the teaching of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and thus be true to the first part of the Shahada,
La ilaha illa Allah Lama Abu Dhabi hockin illa Allah that there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah because Allah He for you to do justice to La ilaha illa Allah, you need to give due diligence to Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah wants us to be in this world as he wants us to be here. He wants us to worship Him as He wants to be worshipped. And by Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala deserves to be worshipped the way he wants to be worshipped. Don't think for one minute, my dear brothers and sisters, that your sujood is going to increase the majesty of Allah and your sin is going to decrease the majesty of Allah. Absolutely not. Allahu Akbar. Allah is the
Greatest and Allah is greater than everything. Allah is perfect from ever and is perfect forever. You also Jude doesn't mean anything to Allah.
He will always be great whether you worship him or you don't and he never needed you to worship Him. For him to be Allah. He never needed you to seek forgiveness for him to be the merciful he never needed to create you
For him to be known as alcoholic, he was the creator before he created. He was the most merciful before he showered mercy, he was the most forgiving before he forgave Allah subhanho wa Taala perfect from ever and perfect forever. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant is the understanding. This is the lesson, my dear brothers and sisters insha Allah, I hope to see you all tomorrow. And we'll take another lesson from the lessons that we find from the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I told you, we're not storytelling, we want to extract and see what matters to us here in the 21st century and I re iterate what I have left out is far more than what I have shared. We only have
45 minutes to an hour brothers and sisters, only 45 minutes to an hour. Right? And this is not the biography of any ordinary man. I love you all for the sake of Allah. Everything correct said is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and is perfect. And any mistakes I found myself in shape upon and I seek Allah subhanho wa Taala His forgiveness May Allah preserve us in his obedience and forgive our past and gather us together to learn more from the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and gather us underneath his hours on the day of pm after we pass away and gather us in Jana was Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so we can tell Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of the
fun times we had during the nights of Ramadan in the year 2014 learning about him and his life and how he benefited us. Hundreds of years later sallallahu alayhi wasallam Rasul Allah wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Ali, he was a big Marine, so Han Allah He will become the Subhana Allah Houma will become the kenisha do Allah Allah hi land, Mr. Furukawa to blue lake wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
