My dear brothers and sisters in Islam as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Welcome brothers and sisters to
a blast from the past Sierra in the 21st century. And this is episode number
50 Are you sure?
How sure are you?
Very Sure. Welcome to Episode 15. My dear brothers and sisters Masha Allah.
Today the brothers told me that the masjid ran out of food.
He said Allahu Akbar, what happened? They said, a larger crowd than
the good crowds that we have Mashallah King. I said, What what happened in this? I don't know. I said, you know, what happened is the sale was announced, there was a sale going on, which started with the 21st night of Ramadan, and the sale ends in a few days time. So what happens? You have the Mad sale rush. Everybody's rushing, right? Mashallah people came, right? This is the Ravana sale. And but there's a problem with the last minute shopping when you go to a sale, shopping. What's the problem when you go to a sale in the last minute, you don't get the size you want.
You only get the x x x L.
Right? All the other good sizes are gone. Right? You're too late. But that's the sale of the dounia sale of the era. Coming even in the last moment is very good. Not only will you get what you want to get better than you want insha Allah because the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala is vast. And we don't restrict Allah's mercy. Right. And that's why I was called as teachers, that even though there's only you know, about four days left or five days left in the month of Ramadan, if you haven't brought yourself to Ramadan, bring it now. Don't lose hope. Because actions are judged by their endings. If these next four or five days are the best of your days, the glad tidings to you.
This is the mercy of Allah. This doesn't mean every year we should relax. Say we'll just wait for the last week because you don't know if you will see the last week will humble life we witnessing the last week. And we've had weaknesses in the first two weeks or the first 20 days.
But the first 25 days, I say to you, don't be sad.
Lesson. Don't be sad. You still have time to bring it. You still have time. And if you bring it not only will you get what you want inshallah you will get better than you want. Insha Allah Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is upon all Abel. Brothers and sisters. Yesterday we were discussing
the open Tao of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the way the Quraysh
dealt with his open down, we said they use many approaches. The first approach was that they tend to a blind eye.
And they thought, the message will
subside, it will die out. But when they saw it was spreading,
they used another approach. And this approach comprised of many activities, the first activity was to pressure a Buddha, the last known guardian of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, someone who loved him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam had great respect for so much respect that he brought up his son. And he wrote the Allah who and so they want to pressure Bhupati did they succeed? Did they know and we learned many lessons, right? many lessons that you and I can benefit from in this century we spoke about, we spoke about being just when we speak about different groups that are against Islam. We don't generalize. We don't say all the Jews,
all the Christians, and so on and so forth.
And we share the example about now in huzur with the the the killing of innocent people we saw clashes in Israel, in Tel Aviv, Jews against Jews, Jews who do not support rockets landing in Gaza, and the death of innocent people. Right, the protests clashed and those who are protesting for the fire. So what do we say about those who are protesting against the firing of these rockets?
Do we throw them in the same bucket as everybody else? That's not being just, that's what being just right. We can have supporters from those who are non Muslims, just like we have seen in Abu Talib. He wasn't a Muslim. Remember when they went to him, we said they told him that look, you are upon the way of Abdulmutallab and this person is practically insulting their way of of the look, polyp. surely, surely, surely you have to do something. It's either you you're a Muslim or you're not and you you're not. So how do you tolerate this, but he was a great supporter. He was a great supporter. He knew Allah nurtured The Tao of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam by showing ibotenic evidence,
and that was with Biafra. Right? So he continued supporting Okay, so this failed? Well, just before this, we were discussing yesterday at the end of how to maintain ourselves especially in crises in this 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. A face 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 or 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, Madison ethic, it's like generalizing going and say, the Jews are like this and so on. And so often somebody will say yes, and they'll probably say something worse than you so what you've done is not open the platform for other people to make mistakes. Right? We said we shouldn't be 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 Shetty. 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 a non academic forum. Facebook is social media, it's for you to go and hang out not for you to go discuss theology, unless you 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 Australian 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 misguided because if we cause
people to become lost, the sin of them becoming lost also comes back to us. If you instigate to haraam, everybody who does harm because of that which was instigated, you will get a share of it. May Allah protect us will not protect us, we don't 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 Iraq to become more intimacy to be led to the lubar the Abba Kitab Allah He was sitting at Len, Toby 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 Allah and the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding, we are not people of emotion. When I say not people of emotion, I'm not saying don't be emotional.
It's human nature to be you know, the scholars have the Sherry, they have chapters in their books. I came across a wonderful chapter in Alma for katavi members. emember Shelby Rahmatullahi Isley mmm Shelby has a whole chapter in start talking about our self LGB Lee,
human nature, human nature, human nature, right tendencies that you feel towards people.
So for example, people ask you know, my
Not by mine, that my neighbors anonymously, but you know, I feel
I feel love for them. I feel love for them. Why they kind to me, they look after me when I'm ill they visit me they look after my children, I feel a sense of emotion towards them.
Am I sinful for this? We say no, you're not sinful for this. This is human nature is beyond your control. What you sinful for is allowing the feeling you have for them.
To start affecting your belief in a line is Russell that even when they do wrong you accept that wrong?
You put them in front of Allah in His resort, you can? Otherwise why wouldn't? If you could not love someone who is not a Muslim? Why would you be able to marry?
From the People of the Book females who are Jews and Christians?
Why would you be allowed? How would you ever love your wife? If you are not allowed to to level with Allah subhanho wa Taala permit this for us? If we were not allowed to feel any emotion, Allah subhanho wa Taala? Wouldn't. It's beyond our control. It's human nature. For example, our children, our children, naturally a parent will have a softer tendency towards one child over another. If a husband has more than one wife, none of us here of course.
big capital IV capital if quote unquote, if
right, it can happen, that you have love for one wife over the other? Will you be sinful for this? No, it's not in your control. But when will you be taken to task? If you allow what you feel? to go against the [???]ty? Will you treat one wife better than the other? you favor one spouse over the other? you favor one child over the other as a teacher? So panela? How many times have we been tested with human nature? Will we have a soft spot for one student? Because they deserve it. They're just an amazing student. And then they exam time comes and you know that they know the answer, but they just didn't write it well in the exam.
But you as a teacher who's been teaching this child for so long, you know, if anyone in the class knows the answer to this chat, but they didn't do it. Well, now you have the dilemma. Should I overlook and just give the marks as if they wrote it well, or not? This is where you will be tested.
If the system tells you that marks are based on what's on the paper, you can't allow this extra feeling you have to cause you to be adjust. So are you held accountable for human nature? No. But what you do as a result of it? Yes. What you say as a result of it? Yes. So we can have emotion when I tell you don't be emotional. I'm not saying you shouldn't feel sad. You shouldn't cry. You should. It's human nature. You should but maintain the laws of the Sharia. In your situation. That is the test of your email. Is that clear? Not that you become emotional, then you start speaking a message that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam did not come with because you're emotional. Yes, somebody
does wrong. It's wrong. We emotionally feel it's wrong. But two wrongs do not make a right. Remember this wrong plus wrong does not equal right? It equals wrong squared.
Right? You can't make it easy. I said, right.
You understand what I'm saying? two wrongs never make a right. two wrongs never make a right. If one person is barking and another person comes and barks like him, what's the difference between the two?
What's the difference? We have you shown Islam people are not going to say look at the Islamic teaching how good it is. People are gonna say Look how bad the guy's behavior is. And you know what his name is Muhammad are useful for Hussein. It's a Muslim name. This is Islamic behavior. That's what people will say. Yesterday, we said that people see you before they hear you right? The speed of light is faster than the speed of sound. You do our by your actions before you do our by speaking. We don't think for one second the person whose gaze you and, and and and signed off on you and your behavior, you're going to have a moment to explain yourself afterwards. No, they're gone.
They're gone with the perception that Muslims This is the behavior. They're the same. There's no difference between Islam and what other people do. May Allah protect us from
doing disservice to the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Allah he understand this, this is what we're doing. This is what we're doing. You know, we're so emotional. We say we need to boycott this product, boycott that product. That's good. That's fine. If you feel that this is a means of of effecting change boycott, but I
Understand this bigger things you need to boycott as well like backbiting you need to boycott that like Rebbe you got to boycott that like disrespecting your parents you got to boycott that like being
having a bad character with your spouse you need to boycott that like not giving you time to your children and raising your children properly you have to boycott that as well. Like not attending the prayers in the masjid boycott that practice to like delaying use the car boycott it as well.
So panela there's so many things that need boycotting, and it's our sins that bring our downfall.
There's so many things that need boycotting in Allah Allah you may become in Hatha Yoga you may be unfussy him, Allah will not change the condition of a people unless they change their situation themselves. It starts with the self change begins not here.
For deeper than here. Remember, we spoke about personality trait character trait? inshallah you went and watched. You did a search for a personality trait versus character trait, my short reminder online. Here people say start with you, I say no, start with yourself. There's a difference between you and yourself. Start from the heart. That's where change begins. Quantum change, mighty change.
We caught the evils of the heart before you boycott a certain product. That's when you really going to have an impact. That's when it's going to happen. That's when the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala descends brothers and sisters. So once again, when I say don't be emotional, I'm not saying have a hard heart like a rock and stop being a human. No, what I'm saying is frame your emotions, place your emotions within the framework of the Sharia, and don't go outside of it.
And we will learn this from the next approach of the Quran with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for what did they do to them? What did they do to him? sallallahu alayhi wasallam and this is the next point. So the first point was what the first point was put pressure on Abu Talib, right? That failed. What did they do afterwards?
What we need to do is annihilate the character of the person character assassination
is what they said. This is what they'll do. They started doing what?
Calling him names,
different names to what they used to call him before. And that's why it's evidence against them. So Pamela, yesterday you were saying I mean, trustworthy, noble man. Now magician. Now.
different names, slandering him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speaking about him in his absence with that, which is not true about him.
This is slander. Riba is when you discuss something in your brother's absence, it might be true about him, but he doesn't want you to say it. But if what you say is a lie about him that slander, that is slander. So they start propaganda, character assassination, going into the land, right. And assassinating the character of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam, after his character was built upon their testimony, how many times in this era Did they say I mean, the trustworthy one, five years prior or five years prior to the bow when prophet who they wanted him to solve the dispute with the Caribbean placing the stone You see, when you don't have principles, what happens?
You don't have principles, you you go against yourself and you don't even know because you you know think
you cannot be defined you know, definition or some you cannot be defined. You are aware the people are, you sit on the fence you are where the wind blows, you like the foam on the waves of the ocean,
moving about aimlessly,
no principles. This is what we learned. This is what people have no principle do the same people, they contradicting themselves. Now, if you and I independent observers, right? Look at the situation we say you know what, you know what?
Definitely what's wrong is with the people criticizing him, because they were the ones who built his character, and now without any evidence they breaking it.
Right? Common sense tells you this. This is where the sticking point is. We need to deal with this. This is where the observers have to go and see, you know, observers when they look at elections and see if it's been rigged or not, they look for the sticky points and then they investigated. The sticky point is people who built his character, the same people are destroying it, and nothing's changed.
Yes, he's come with the message, but he's voted with evidence.
And you character assassinating you based on what this is the where the investigation has to happen.
And what would the investigation do? It would consider this
It was null and void and substantiate Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
But this is what they did teams of Allahu alayhi wa sallam propaganda, but look at Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam still, you think it doesn't hurt? You think it doesn't hurt when people lie about you?
And you know it hurts, right?
You know it does,
will protect as well but I'm sure all of us have had at some moment in our life, someone who's lied about us, going to spread tales about us. It hurts. It hurts Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He was asked he was asked what was the hottest day in your life? Was it ahead? When you lost your your uncle Hamza for the Allah Who?
And around 70 of his companions love the Allah who I knew magic marine. Was that the hardest?
What did he say? sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
I shall have the Allah says, asked the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, have you ever experienced a day harder than the Battle of the day of that battle?
He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied indeed I experienced
a harder more difficult day than that. Emotionally Of course, she's asking about emotionally. You lost Hamza, you lost your companions. What does that do to you? You miss them? You feel it? You feeling it? You have strong emotion. Did you ever feel emotionally drained?
A draining far greater than what you felt. At the end of Ohio? He said Yes, I did.
And it was the at the hands of your people, the disbelievers from amongst the courage. He says the hardest treatment I met from them was on the day of Aqaba, when I went to
one of the
chiefs of life.
One of the heads into with a gift, gift of the hidden now, when Tim with goodness, the purpose of inviting him towards success in this world in the next.
He says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but I got no response. And I departed in distress with sadness with emotion. He says I did not recover until I arrived at a certain place.
And we know what the details are Allahu alayhi wa sallam right? Right. Not only was his message rejected, what were they told to do?
run him out of town. Not so not so. harmed physically, emotionally is already in distress. We know Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would become extremely sad. And we said this in other episodes when the message was not accepted Allah, Allah Allah cabella
and 30 him in love You mean to be had and howdy the SFR for Ted hub left suka it him Hassan.
Allah is telling him in the Quran, don't cause yourself to to distract because of their reluctance in accepting your message, which means what every time somebody didn't listen to the message you would become so sad It was
So he was already beaten emotionally and then he was beaten physically. We're talking about earlier the lesson of not being emotional people to the extent that it makes us cross the boundaries of the Sharia. This is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
emotionally hurt because of slander, emotionally hurt, because his messages being rejected, a mighty hurting, he says I got to a place and
jabril and he said um, came to me and said, he said, Allah has heard what your people said to
Allah is that what they said to you?
And the response they made to you, they emotionally hurt you.
You're full of emotion. What would you do today?
Listen to what he says Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He says the angel said to gibreel and he has sent you the angel in charge of the mountains for you to order him to do what you wish love.
Allah. This is no small matter.
Looks more matter president of the country says Sajid I've given you presidential authority over Australia. Right? fix everything up.
That's a lot of power. No.
Sorry, I didn't mention your name.
Amazon Alexa and he was telling him he's given power of
moving the mountain.
Personal lesson Allah who it was sent him said the angel of the mountain greeted me this wasn't talking no action, empty words. No, the angel was there. He greeted Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he said, Oh Muhammad Allah, listen to what your people have said to you. I am the angel of the mountains, and my robe has sent me to you, so that you may give me your orders
and I will carry them out. If you wish, I will bring the mountains together that stand opposite to each other.
And these evil oppressive extreme people will be crushed in between Lucha
mighty indeed. Mighty India, remember the other day I said Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never invited to himself invited to the message. Remember that lesson.
He never invited to his ego and was upset because my dad didn't accept my statement. So I'm upset.
We were in a team meeting. They took his idea of mine. So I'm upset. Now. He was invited to the message. You know what? You know what proof What proof I have to substantiate what I said.
Besides the fact that Allah said don't cause yourself to self destruct because they don't want your message. This heading here brothers and sisters, if he was quoting to himself, and hurt because his ego was hurt.
What would the human being to
say, move the mountains together?
Allah No. He was invited to the message. He was sad because the message of Allah the message of Allah was accepted Salma Allahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah is not blameworthy to you, if you know your own guidance, and you call to yourself, not blame. But you know what's better?
To call to the message, said about me. It's about the message.
said about my ratings. It's about you accepting the message. It's not about whose message or whose speech you took from, it's about you getting the message. So I share with my final daughter as well.
hamdulillah The more people that come to speak, the better.
Because it's about the people getting the message, not who they get it from. So it's that it's that it's the right message, but they should get it
because we call to the message,
not to ourselves, Allah forgive us and protect us. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
in this most difficult circumstance, emotionally beaten, physically beaten, love.
He teaches us how to place our emotions within the framework of the Sharia.
Wasn't this the lesson earlier?
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said I rather hope that Allah will raise from among their descendants people.
That one worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone and not ascribed partners to him.
This is what he said some Allahu alayhi wa sallam. If I crushed them, there'll be nobody left. If we leave them, I can come back here one day.
The issue is the message. There'll be new people I can come back to and I can share with them the message. Sal, Allahu Allah, he was sending me Allah guides as with even gender. I mean, this is in Bukhari and Sahih, Al Bukhari and Muslim. No doubt in the oma regarding this incident happening and being authentic. This is what happened, brothers and sisters take the lesson. Take the lesson. It's about what's right. today. There's so much propaganda we don't know Asa from Martha's panela. And we all formulating opinions that cause emotions, and we act upon it.
Look at the articles coming out now talking about some governments in the Middle East. And I don't want to be a spreader of news, because I haven't verified it. And I can't I don't have the tools to verify it.
But I'm sure you read.
And you can relate to what I'm saying. My aim from this talk is not to to expose unconfirmed things, but they are statements about some of the governments in the Middle East with regards to what's happening in huzar, and so on and so forth. So the article gamer who wrote the article,
let's the background.
how relevant is the message? What type of research is this? What are they based it on?
Did they get it from somebody who heard it from somebody who heard it from somebody? Or did they get it from the horse's mouth? Not that anyone is a horse, but you know what I'm saying?
But we accept and we get emotion then we start making do I start making do I gain certain people? Based on what?
At least okay? If you feel it's true, at least say if it is true, then May Allah subhanho wa Taala do this, if it is true, this is being just this is not letting the emotion get the better of you. This is the way of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wasallam. As we have seen,
today, you know, the scholars of Hadith
if a hadith comes, and the narrator is much rule and hand
meaning the name of the person is known, but his character his ability with Hadith is unknown. They say that is a means of question marks being raised over the the authenticity of the narration. You know the name of the person but you didn't know about it?
Much hoolahan The End meaning the person is no my rueful end module and
the name of the person is no, but the reality of who he is is unknown.
Today, you and I
merge who will align one half? We don't know who wrote it. We don't know who said it. We don't even know this situation and we accept it.
Look at WhatsApp and the messages that fly. Forward. Please forward forward, please forward Marshall. Everybody's got time on their hands. You know, the waiting for his thought. Let's forward. Right. This is a good message. It's forward. I don't know if it's good. But it seems good.
Seems like a prophetic message. So what do we do? Quickly broadcasts now what shall our 200 people you can broadcast to 200 people go on the list? Boom, sent phone crashes, Whatsapp crashes, everything crashes.
And what did you do? You spread something that's not been verified.
English killer. You know this time we wish killer killer come a pet name even amongst the non Arabs. This is a problem.
This is a problem. Emotion should be placed within the framework of the Sharia. This was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this is what he did. So the Quraysh when pressure on Abu Talib failed, they went to the next thing mocking jeering character assassination, going out in the market and doing everything they could. And you know what it was a continuation from something which started when he said the first message. Remember when he stood on sulfide he announced and Abu lahab said what he said wasn't that an insult?
did not make dua against the Prophet. He insulted him. He hurt him emotionally. But even then the courage decided then turn a blind eye it don't give it important and you know what, there's some wisdom in it. There's some wisdom you know, some there's some websites that are come out websites. And these websites have misguided messages about Islam. What do we see Muslims? do they mean? Well, Muslims mean well, they gather all the links and start sending it to everybody. You have to be aware of these websites be aware of these websites be aware of these websites now it's human nature. You said beware you didn't give anything human nature. Let's go see click click click click click.
So you warning people against but you got people to visit.
Without you intending? Of course you mean good. But people visited. So what happened? That website got ratings now, Google Analytics, it got ratings. So now when you search about Islam, which websites come up first? Which ones these ones that have got so many hits?
You have to be you know, and this is why I also tell our young brothers and sisters be correct.
But just current in terms of fashion, be current in terms of what's happening, how things work. Don't be closed blinkers naive, too much naivety in the oma too much and gunnebo Carnival supernova like we said earlier except news and unconfirmed, build a whole bunch of responses based on it. cannibal naivety is there. Yes, we should think good in people but don't be naive. There's a difference.
Muslim doesn't fall in the same hole twice. Get caught in the same trap twice.
Even if the person has changed, we accept it.
