My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, my dear mothers and fathers Salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.
I'd like to begin by sharing my heartfelt gratitude to Greenline Masjid, to shift us and Hanif and to share. And brother, ideal setting for this
for it brings fond memories of my time with you all just over a year ago. And indeed Time flies. ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless
those involved in the running of this Masjid, as well as everyone in attendance for Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is above all, Eva, I also ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make our blessing gathering together
in his house, a gathering, that he has a good word and follows it and a gathering that is forgiven upon its departure and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us from amongst those that see our sitting here. In the after, when we meet Allah subhanho wa Taala and to make our sitting together, a means of beautifying our agenda. For indeed our coming together has to be first and foremost, to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala Yes, we might intend to learn something and I pray that inshallah we do, but our first priority should be the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Our first priority should be that are sitting together is to make heavier our scales of good deeds on the day of pay
ama for first we have a bad and then a byproduct of this rabada is that we will learn inshallah, so let us keep our intentions in its correct place.
The topic for this evening,
as was shared with me
a few weeks ago, was the verse or the ayah which is more appropriate in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala we Allah subhanho wa Taala says we're who do either be mineral coal, or who do Illa Serato shamit it is an ayah in Surah Al Hajj where Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says, and they were guided to a goodly word, and they were guided to a praiseworthy path, they were guided to a praiseworthy path. Now, this is a very important topic and the way that it's been aligned because
one important component with regards to ourselves and the relationship with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala is our lack of practice of a concept known as a double our lack of practice of a concept known as tetherball and hamdulillah. In the Ummah, we have many that memorize the Quran, and that is praiseworthy, we have many that read the Quran and recite it and that is praiseworthy as well. And we have many that listen to the Quran. And in all these activities are vast and great rewards. However, there is another dimension
We should be having with the Quran, another relationship that we should be having with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this dimension in reality is the essence behind the revelation of Al Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala teaches us in his book, The essence behind the revelation of Al Quran, and this essence or this concept, or this phenomenon. And this dimension is known as the double our ability to contemplate and deliberate over the ayat that exists in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And with correct deliberation and contemplation, we stand a chance of learning several lessons, that might not be something that we take into consideration when we look at the
apparent nature of an eye. But when we ponder over it, we find the secrets of the ayah coming to light and Allah subhanho wa Taala opens the hearts of the believers as He wills. Now, this relationship with the Quran in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala utilizing all its dimensions was something that the pious predecessors before us, were big on, if I can use that colloquial term, in fact, we find from them irrespective of the great achievements in the fields of work, and the great achievements in the fields of study. We find them saying towards the end of the lives that we wish we could have dedicated our entire life only to the study of the Quran. Because no matter how long
you sit with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala you will never ever comprehend all its intricacies. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book
regarding the Quran, he says
de baru it while he,
Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he says this book is a blessed Book which We have revealed to Mohammed why so that they may ponder and deliberate over it is over it's lessons over it signs, Walia to the Quran, Allah, Allah Al Bab, and so that those of understanding will remember.
And this is why we say it's inappropriate to translate an ayah as a verse because an ayah is more comprehensive in meaning than a verse as we know it in the English language. The area is more comprehensive, it has a meaning and then there are many secrets behind that meaning which Allah subhanho wa Taala opens for whom He wills based on their sincerity and based on the journey with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And in particular, this concept of tenable, now, Rahim Allah, He explains, we are in the Quran, where Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us the statement of Muhammad, Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will say, in a coma Tato
has an Anima Jura that my people have abandoned this Koran. And it goes on to mention several ways that a person can abandon the Quran by not reciting it or maybe not reciting it with its rules, by not memorizing it and so on and so forth. And one of the aspects that he cites and spends time discussing is this concept of tetherball. He says that a person who does not develop this dimension with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala, than this person has contributed to
negligence with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and that is why we as an oma should request from our scholars time and time again to ensure that they are always do rules pertaining to the study of the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala running at at any given time, irrespective of the other lessons going on, beat in fifth beat in Hadith and so on and so forth, we should ensure and we should make sure that we spend time once these lessons are opened up for us to attend. For we are learning that which is the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make this a gathering of the who we ask Allah subhanho wa
Taala to make this a gathering, in which is or a gathering that is rather surrounded by angels, a gathering that has the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala before falling upon us, and a gathering in which everyone present is content for
hamdulillah we have come together in the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala to study from the book of Allah.
Allah Allah, Allah hadal kaha and our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in an authentic hadith much Tamar comun Fi beighton Min booty la hit Allah. Nikita biLlahi orietta de rasuna who faema Bina whom Illa Allah to Allah hemos Sakina wash yet whom urashima will have to be him alma iica was Akira como la houfy man in de Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that there is no group of people that come together in a house from the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala yet Luna Kitab Allah they recite the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala or at Adela rasuna who FEMA but you know whom, and they study together to Doris they study together the book of Allah subhanho wa
Taala Illa nessa Allah to Allah He was Sakina except that Allah subhanho wa Taala causes contentment to fall upon them. So Han Allah, Nazareth la hemos Sakina or hersha, Toma Rama and they become engulfed with the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala will have to be him and mela eager to and angels are commanded to surround that particular gathering. And we ask Allah subhana wa tada to surround this gathering with angels with the current of whom Allah human ENDA and Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions that gathering to those that are with Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala mention us by name to those that are with Allah subhanho wa Taala What a great honor. Not so,
what a great honor it would be for Allah subhanho wa Taala to mention yourself and myself by name to those that are with him.
As stated earlier, the topic for today is a number 24 in Surah to hedge with Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well who do ilaqua
or who do Illa Surat Al Hamid, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions this ayah in Surah, to hatch after
telling us about the prize of the believers and that they will be in Jenna. And he tells us about the great gifts that they will be showered with engender, and then he tells us about the reasons behind the entrance into gender.
when he cites these reasons, subhanho wa Taala. He says what we'll do in a minute, that these people have gender, we're guided to a goodly word. Well, who do Illa sera Hamid and they were guided to a praiseworthy path. Now, what did Allah subhanho wa Taala mean when you said, well, who do NFP mean? They were guided to a goodly word. What did Allah subhanho wa Taala mean? When he said a goodly word, there are a number of them have mentioned several reasons or several meanings rather, regarding a mineral coal. Some have said a mineral coal refers to the recitation of the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they were guided towards the recitation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. His
book, others have said, a mineral coal refers to La ilaha illAllah that there is no one worthy of worship besides Allah subhanahu wa tada that is the correct translation of La Jolla high Lama. Sometimes we see translation stating there is no god but God. And that is not a clear depiction of the article of faith. The correct translation is there is no one worthy of worship besides Allah subhanho wa Taala. So some of them of Assyrian have said that Allah subhanho wa Taala intends by the statement, La ilaha illa Allah, whilst others have said, a pipe mineral refers to El amor Bill maroof or nahi kar, it refers to inviting to and warning against evil. So we have a range of
explanations by the dilemma of Tafseer regarding the meaning of a minute, but what we need to understand is that even though we have different explanations regarding the meaning of mineral coal, what is clear, and what is manifest is that these different translations do not oppose each other. It's not a theory.
It's not a difference of opinion, where one opinion is cancelling out the other. Rather, they complement each other. It's still alpha tau alpha as some of the lemma state, it is a difference in explanation However, each explanation
complements each other. So it is correct to say that Allah subhanho wa Taala intended by a pie you've been a recitation of the Quran, as well as saying La ilaha illa Allah as well as inviting towards good and preventing from Eva.
And then Allah subhanho wa Taala said, well who do Illa Surat Al Hamad, and they were guided towards a praiseworthy path. And the aroma of Pepsi to say, a praiseworthy path here refers to Islam refers to Islam, this submission to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In every moment that we live in, this is the true meaning of Islam, submission to the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In every second that you live in, so this is what the allameh have said, today are servants of Allah and oh Children of Adam, I want to ponder and deliberate with you all over Allah subhanho wa Taala statement, what we'll do in a minute, that they were guided towards a goodly word, for if we ponder
over this, we actually learned the importance of having a regulated tongue in our life, that Subhana Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about the people of Jannah, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about the gifts that will be showered
over the people of Ghana. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala cites a reason for the entry into Jenna. And that was the ability to look after the attack, La ilaha illAllah. This one piece of flesh that exists as one entity, with each and every one of us, we have two eyes, we have two nostrils to breathe with. We have two hands, we have two feet. But here we have a little piece of flesh, and this is the tongue
and it exists as a single entity. And Allah subhanho wa Taala if we ponder and deliberate teaches us that this small piece of flesh is a means of great success in the year after. Now, if we look at the evidence of the Sharia collectively.
One thing that is manifestly clear is that our Sharia advises us time and time again, irrespective of the form of evidence towards having a regulated tank, towards looking after our tank. Many is if you look in the book of Allah,
Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala if we look in his book, we find Allah subhanho wa Taala saying, in an ayah, which we hear every Friday, Allah says, Yeah
la poo Cola, Sadie.
Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks to the believers says, Oh, you who believe speaking to yourself and myself. And we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses a range of people in his book for sometimes he addresses mankind in general. But here he specifically addresses the believers. And as Bill Massoud famously said, when you read the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala adopt a form of respect and when you hear that Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses you, oh, believer, then sit up and pay attention for Allah subhanho wa Taala after his address is either going to command you towards something or warn you against something. So what has Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded as Allah
says, Be God conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala fear the punishment of Allah subhanho wa Taala and what does Allah subhanho wa Taala cite as a means of attaining a taqwa. wakulla colon sadita and say, always speak the truth.
Allah commands us towards taqwa, and then says worku colon sadita. So we learn that saying a truthful word, and being honest is a means towards the attainment of a taco.
So vanilla and taco is indeed the recipe for one's entry into gender. Allah subhanho wa Taala
says, In surah, two israa work with Reba de poulet, he sang Allah subhanho wa Taala says and say to my slaves, and say to my slaves in the previous ayah, Allah subhanho wa Taala addressed us as the believers. And here Allah subhanho wa Taala says and say to my slaves, yaku Letty, they should say that which is better
They should ensure that the speech consists of the best of words.
Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the bad man, the slaves of Iraq man in Surah Al Furqan. And he says from the qualities are either harpa homall Jae Hee Luna carlu Salama, that when they are spoken to by those that are ignorant, they don't respond in an ignorant manner.
They rather say, Salama, peace be unto you. They don't drop themselves to the level of those that are ignorant and they ensure that they continuously maintain the best of all speeches.
Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in Surah Allah uncovered in Surah alenka booth wala to JD Lu Ll kitabi. In lability here isin, Allah subhanho wa Taala commands is not to argue with the people of the book, except in a way which is better.
So Pamela, even with non Muslims, Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us to maintain ourselves in our speech in to ensure that we are utilizing this flesh to our benefit as a near Ma and not to our downfall and punishment for indeed then it will be a newcomer. Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in Surah Fatah la yes Angela Kelly mapai.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says to Allah subhanho wa Taala a sense all goodly words,
all goodly words, and the righteous deeds of the person, Exalted La ilaha illallah wa. So our Sharia has really covered all the angles when it comes to us, and our tongues and the usage of our tongues. In fact, if we look in Surah Al Baqarah, we find Allah subhanho wa Taala teaching the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to look after the words to such a degree, that if a word may have a double, a double barreled meaning, and one of the meanings could entail something evil than the believer should stay away from it. Some words could mean one meaning and could mean another. If one of the two meanings is not praiseworthy, Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us to stay away from
it. And this we learn from Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you have levena Amman. Oh, you who believe Latifah Inna wakulla I'm gonna smell Allah subhanho wa Taala commands the believers not to address Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by saying or Arina because that's what they used to do, because this word has a good connotation. However, the Jews were addressing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with this word, but they intended the evil connotation, from the usage of this word plus Hannah who Allah told the believers to stay away from that word, rather say, oh Prophet, I'm gonna look at us with smell and listen to us. So this is the extent in which Allah subhanho wa Taala
in his book has guided us towards the correct usage of our tongue. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will not do so. Except if it had
a great price upon is correct usage and indeed it does. Very quickly, we look at the sooner
if we look at the sooner we find that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said men can mean Billa Valeo mill after failure to hire and Olivia Smith. Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, fully Apple Hara they should say good, only have smart or keep silent.
g piece of advice for my amazing piece of advice. And the Arabs themselves knew the importance of a good word. For we hear the words of a famous poet when he said, Man, in addition to Allah suku to Mr. Ratan, dim to Allah kalami Mira, the poet said that I never ever regretted being silent, but I continually regretted opening my mouth.
And we know that I'm sure we've seen the famous saying that when you silent, you have a latch on your words, but when you speak, your words have a latch on you.
And that's a fact. People are judged based on how they speak.
People are judged based on how they speak.
Sometimes when a gathering and someone walks in and they
look like a person of honor and sorry, a person of honor and respect, right? And we have a perception of them.
Until they open their mouth. Right? Like the famous story
with Abu hanifa
Rahim Allah at once he was in a gathering with his students. And we know of a teacher when he's with his students that he stays with day, day in and day out is he relaxes with them. So he was teaching his dogs and he had his feet stretched out. And one day an elderly man walked into the Majlis. So Abu hanifa immediately brought his feet forward. He brought his feet inwards. He said, What adab and respect because this is a foreign person, person with a beard, a person that looked wise. So Abu hanifa acted accordingly. And this person remained silent in that gathering, and Abu hanifa would continue to teach.
And then the day came, and there are many variations of this narration. A day came when Abu hanifa was teaching the book of cm, the book of cm. So
this chef put up his hand, he put up his hands.
And he said, I have a question.
What if the beginning of Ramadan happens to fall on the 10th of
the day of eat?
Do we have to fast?
So Abu hanifa answered and said, if the first of Ramadan happens to fall on the 10th of the ledger, then it's time for Abu hanifa to stretch his legs out again.
So basically, this tongue makes us or breaks us in this world and in the hereafter May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect our tongues. I mean, this tongue Oh servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam is from good character and the owner of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is in great need of good character by Allah. We are in great need of character, especially today, where we are traversing difficult times in dour and we need to make sure that the first point of Dawa is our character and our people see Islam before they hear Islam. today. Unfortunately, people hear Islam and they read about Islam, but they don't see Islam. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us for
Allah He, it is a great misrepresentation on our part.
When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a move in Quran and Allah subhanho wa Taala said that he is the best of examples for us. So Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala Forgive us, we are in great need of
this particular tongue of servants of Allah is a means of good character. And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that indeed a believer like you, Derek, because Nicolai diraja saw him Allah Cai, La ilaha illa Allah, that a believer will reach the levels of the one who spends the night in prayer, and the levels of the one who fasts regularly just through his good character.
And this tongue is from good character, if you want the rewards of those who observe the Salawat when we are all asleep, and those who fast during the day, when we are all eating, then look after you. And one of the first avenues of looking after your character is by looking after your tongue.
For good character is everything, all servants of Allah, and the famous poet Ahmed Shakti, the Egyptian poet, what did he say? He said enamel omen. Puma back yet that nation's remains remain, and they are known for as long as their character remains. So Pamela, for in whom that habit, and once their character dissipates and leaves them
to whom they have they also dissipate and become normal.
We all know how Islam spread to Indonesia and these other countries, it spread through through a penal code and we are in great need of servants of Allah. And we are in great need for good character. Allah He this Islamophobia can be dealt with if the non Muslims see Islam in us before they hear Islam from us because today they don't even want to give us the opportunity to listen to us right. They don't want to give us the opportunity to speak
Show them in your character, smile. Don't walk the streets with a frowning face.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the buzzsumo Coffee which he casada that if you smile in the face of your Muslim brother, it's a sadaqa it's a reward a charity. Imagine if you smile in the face of the non Muslims for the purposes of the hour, and cleaning up Islamophobia and making that a means of the hour imagine what the rewards are for that.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding, we need a paper towel or servants of Allah and old children of Adam with our parents. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Fela de la Huma,
Huma wakulla Houma.
Kereama, Allah subhanho wa Taala says Don't utter the word of to your parents, and say to them, a an honorable word. Look at the words Allah subhanho wa Taala uses, you could the objective Allah subhanho wa Taala uses here and say to them, and honorable word, we need a mineral coal are servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam with our wives. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Hi eurocom hydrocone ie
the best of you are those that are best to their families, we should ensure that with our families, we use the sweetest of words, the softest of words, be a lion outside the home, not in the home.
Some fathers or some husbands when they enter the home, they become an asset.
They become a man. And when they leave the home, they lose the manhood by smiling with everybody outside the home and in the home, they walking as if
there's some great other that they are dealing with.
Yeah, we need a penal code you worship Allah subhana wa Taala in speaking to your wives and families in a good way. And this is why I was telling somebody yesterday, somebody was asking me, you know, 20, but I don't know maybe when I'm 30
I need to get my PhD and I need to earn money and I need to I have dreams. I said, Look, it's either your dreams is to build your agenda. And if your dream is to build your agenda, then getting married is a new way to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. People don't think of it like that if you didn't get married, you would not worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. As those who worship Allah when they are married, it opens a whole new range of worship,
in earning halal sustenance to provide for your family in controlling your moods.
Right, because you have a because others have a right over you now.
in protecting your family from the Hellfire, everything you do to protect them is a means of building your agenda. That's a new way of worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. In dealing with your outlaws
the patients that you need, and it's unfortunate, right insha Allah May Allah make us lucky to have in laws that are like our own family. Some of us are lucky Alhamdulillah Allah subhanho wa Taala preserve but what I'm what the method that the message is now you have to deal with them. The patients that you exercise by alive, you are married, you could not worship Allah subhanho wa Taala that particular way we need to become people have to double ponder and think don't live life at the surface, think you have children to bring them up upon the sadhana and to make them those that look after the Quran and the Sunnah is a great way to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. In fact, one of
the ways for us to earn after we pass away is through a pious child who makes dua for his or her parent is a matter of near them in uttara amaroo illa mithila. When the son of Adam dies, his means of earning rewards is cut except three ways. And one of them is a pious child who makes for his parents.
So we need this hoodoo Amina.
We need this goodly word in our homes and understand that you worship Allah subhanho wa Taala with this goodly word, we need this goodly word are servants of Allah, no children of Adam, with our own children.
We need this goodly word with our own children. And this was the guidance of the MBR alima salat wa salam. This was the guidance. Listen to Ibrahim alayhis salam, Ibrahim alayhi salam, when he sees in a dream that he is slaughtering his Mariela he Salam when he addresses him. What does he say? Oh, boy, you
He says, Yeah, boy. Yeah, Guney.
My dear son
in knee, our our feeling man me and me as bad joke
he talks to his son and he tells you some of an amazing message that he has received from Allah subhanho wa Taala but he addresses him with the best of words. Oh my dear son
jacoba Allah His Salah when you serve Allah He Salam sees the dream. When you serve Allah He Salam sees the special dream of the sun and the moon and 11 stars bowing down to him. What does his father tell him after he relates the dream to his father? Por la, buena El Paso Surya Corolla Tikka Yaki du Lac ADA, he says, Oh, my dear son, do not
release this dream to your brothers less they should plot against you. What did he say to young use of? Oh, my dear son, a minute, a goodly word. New alayhis salam, his rebellious son, when Allah subhanho wa Taala causes the earth to split and water is gushing forth and the skies are pouring forth and the adverb of Allah subhanho wa Taala is coming. And here is the rebellious son of Allah. He said, I'm still continuing in his rebellion. What does he say to his son at that moment? Yeah, boonie
in cub man, oh, my son, get onto the ship.
get onto this Ark. Meaning, except the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Look how he spoke to his son, a rebellious son.
And let's not talk about what we would do today.
Yakov alayhis salam again, several years after the loss of use of Allah, his Salah several years after dealing with the mischief of his sons, he knew that they lied to him.
With all the hurt that they gave him, what does he say after several years? He says, Yeah, Bonnie is her Boo. Boo me use, oh, my dear son, go and search for use.
This was the son of the MBA Salatu was Salam. They had a five minute talk. They spoke always a goodly word, irrespective of the situation. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us this understanding, are servants of Allah, and oh Children of Adam. We need a goodly word with those around us.
And as even Malik robiola when he says that I was of service to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for 10 years and not once did he say
for something which I did, why did you do it? And not once did he say about something which I never did? Why did you not do it?
Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the qualities and says, What either Maru Beloved, Maru kerama
that when they pass a level, that which is of no importance, those statements which are a waste of time, those statements and activities, which are few times the pass it with Khurram with honor, these are the bad man, they are good, and they always say a goodly word, irrespective of the environment, even with those around them. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a very eloquent ayah and all the ayat of the Quran eloquent. He says, Furby ma
Mina hula healing Taylor home wailuku one Holly B Lang. boomin cowlick.
Allah subhanho wa Taala tells Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that it is the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala that allowed you to be soft in your nature with your companions, one who couldn't afford Valhalla. If you had a hard approach with them, learn folk boom in how they would have dispersed from you.
He was soft in character. And he was soft in speech. And we know in several examples from the Sundar like the Bedouin, who came into the masjid and urinated in the masjid. He spoke to him a goodly word, and that goodly word was a means of Islam, La ilaha illa Allah. Again, the magnanimous effects of a goodly word, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells me round, sorry, tells Musa Allah, He says
And Harun Alayhi Salam before they go to Freetown and go to him and say,
a soft word,
a soft word, not Oh, Mad Men are presser fools. Who on earth do you think you are? and so on and so forth, go to him and say to him a soft word, this is how that was done. And this is why we need a mineral coal with those around us.
If we ponder over the ayah in the Quran, and we spoke about the importance of deliberation, we even learn how to have add up in our speech with Allah subhanho.
wa Taala. Hi, yes, we have a lot that have apparent meanings, but when we ponder over them, we find in our lessons, hidden lessons,
let me share with you some
Ibrahim Alayhi Salam when he mentions Allah subhanho wa Taala and what Allah subhanho wa Taala does, he says, a levy Hala Pani for who is Deen Allah subhana wa Taala created me and Allah subhanho wa Taala guides. And then he says, Well Levy, who are you Terry Mooney wire scheme? And Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who feeds me and Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who quenches my thirst.
And then he says, We're either married to for who is Finn.
Now listen to this. He says, and when I become sick,
Allah cuse me. He didn't say, and when Allah makes me sick, Allah que SB when before he said, Allah gives me food and Allah quenches my thirst and Allah created me and Allah guided me when he speaks about becoming sick. He says when I become sick, isn't Allah subhanho wa Taala has decree the overall
stance when it comes to one being sick or not. It's Allah subhanho wa Taala, who is in control, but he has added with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Getting sick is not something beloved to men. So he says, When I become sick, he uses an ebony little maturely the passive form of the verb
a Jeep, we are, we are learning how to have edibles Allah subhana wa Tada. Look at the story of hidden in Surah two calf when Musa alayhis salam was on a journey with him, and whether he punctured a hole in the boat, right.
And then he mended a wall. Right. In one particular city, even though even though the people of that city are not honorable to them, he still went ahead and mended that wall. When when Sally Salam asked him about why he mended the wall, he said for our either a book, you or Rob wanted to protect the wealth of
its owners until they reach the required age. So even though the city was not honorable to you, I mended the wall. Why? Because you're up, you're up, wanted to protect that wealth for its owners. But when he speaks about why he punctured a hole in the ship, what does he say? He says, for up to an iva. He says that this ship belongs to some poor people.
And I wanted to make a defect in it, because there was an oppressor and oppressive King, who was usurping all bishops. Now was he not taking the instruction from Allah subhanho wa Taala. He was, but here he doesn't say and Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to cause a defect in the ship. He says, I wanted to cause a defect in the shop. This is Adam but Allah subhanho wa Taala La ilaha illAllah La ilaha illa Allah, this Quran are servants of Allah for those who ponder nurtures our speech, even in teaching us how to hide the faults of others. If we look at surah Yusuf
when the brothers got together, and they plotted against us via his Salaam,
Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
when they were discussing, killing Yusuf alayhi salam, Allah says Kanaka Illumina. Someone from them said,
Allah didn't tell us who.
And the allama have to say it was the elder brother who said, But Allah kept him hidden.
Allah kept him hidden. Why? Because he did not do his job as an older brother. He did not
dismantle the plot of his younger brothers Rather, he said
lead up to the use of don't kill him rather throw him at the bottom of a well. So because he didn't do his job he made a mistake. Allah subhanho wa Taala hid his mentioned, but at the end of the story of use Valley Salaam when the brothers were gathered outside of the king's palace because Binyamin or the brother of us Valley Salaam was taken, and the big brother played his part and said, I will not go back to my father, rather you all go, I will stay here when he played his role. What did Allah subhanho wa Taala say? Karla kabiru the big one from them said, The elder brother said here Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions him why something praiseworthy?
What's the lesson?
Allah subhanho wa Taala is teaching us what, how to hide the faults of others, how to hide their mistakes in our speech, or who do in a minute call me Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us this understanding,
are servants of Allah and O Children of Adam, as we have heard Allah subhanho wa Taala didn't just give us a tongue but he taught us how to use it. And this tongue can be a means of great success in the hereafter. And this tongue can be a means of great Doom in the hereafter. And with this understanding, it's important that we discuss some of the diseases of this tongue. There are several diseases, we don't have time to go into them all but for the purposes of our session together, especially now that we are intrigued about how this tongue is a means of earning the grand gifts of Jenna, it's important that we discuss some of the prevalent diseases of this tongue as they exist in
society. Allah subhanho wa Taala Grant has Baraka in the remaining time, so that we can do justice to some of these lessons.
the evils of the son of the tango sevens of Allah are many from them is excessive speech.
Using this tongue more than is needed.
And yesterday in Bath, we spoke about the topic that they gave me was purification of the heart or revival of the heart. And we discussed the sicknesses of the heart. And we said that one of the sicknesses of the heart is the sickness of Oblivion, or the sickness of hafla, where a person knows things, but their actions
are not perpendicular to that which they know it actually contradicts them having this particular knowledge. So for example, they know that they will stand in front of Allah subhanahu tarryn on the day of gamma, they know that they will die and there's a dark, tight grave which they will go into.
And even with that knowledge, we see them living in the disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is a matter of the heart that is a sickness of the heart, and the real MRSA to cure a heedless heart. One should expel all forms of excessiveness from his or her life, starting with an excessive tongue.
Because this tongue is a neuroma, when used in its fear, in its borders, the moment you cross those borders, it becomes a nicoma it becomes an adversity, it becomes the opposite of a blessing.
It becomes an adverb and punishment.
And I shared with them yesterday and some of the brothers from Bath are here, I shared with them an important rule. And that rule is is either a Zed cache and had D in Oliver Illa with D, that if anything passes its boundary, the results of that action are counterproductive. If you did that act within its boundary, the results are productive, the moment you were excess. In that activity, the results became counterproductive. And we all know the ill effects of overeating. Even though eating is good for us. And over sleeping, even though sleeping is good for us and over socializing. Even though socializing is good for us and it is in socializing. When the fat and the sicknesses of the
have a field day. Especially when you have bad and poor friends aka May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala as he commands us towards having a good tongue, he says yeah, un levina ama takala O you who believe, attain God consciousness while kulu Masada team and have a truthful friend circle, La Ilaha Illa.
Allah monitors even our friend soccer because that would lead to the protection of the tank.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to explain to us the evil related to the excessive usage of the tongue says Allah subhanho wa Taala dislikes for you three things. he dislikes for you three things. Number one, a lover can hear say, you know what he said? You know what she said? You know what he said about what she said about what he said about
What he said about what they said, and the train goes on and on and on. This is disliked, below our call worker thread. So, this is from being excessive. When you ask trivial questions, you ask questions of no substance, like the people of Musa alayhis salam, when Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded them to store to the Bukhara they said, tell us about the bar and tell us about the color of the bar and tell us and tell us and tell us.
This is excessiveness and it leads to a sick heart and it leads to one spiraling downwards and May Allah subhanho wa Taala protective one is not careful, that tongue will land them in the pits of Johanna May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that being excessive entails below upon he is a worker through the soil, asking trivial questions. And then he completed the Hadith by saying whatever achill man and wasting Well,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
also taught us that from the good character of a believer is that he leaves that which doesn't concern him or her.
He leaves that which doesn't concern him or her. He rather use this tongue to build his gender over using this tongue to build his Jana. So when there is nothing more to discuss, he visits his tongue with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala because Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Yeah, you have Lavina Tacoma. Yeah, you and NASA. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you will, yeah, you unless what is Allah subhanho wa Taala say? Yeah, you know, Allah the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala addresses the believers and say, Oh, you who believe? remember Allah subhanho wa Taala an abundance, remembrance and abundant remembrance and read the statements of the pious predecessors before us
regarding this ayah in the Quran.
May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us the understanding
from the evils of the tangled servants of Allah and oh Children of Adam is a practice known as an amoeba and NEMA and NEMA or an amoeba refers to tail carrying some people, they have hearts that are ill spiritually ill, and they take pride and happiness in carrying tails from one party to the other. And Amina especially refers to carrying these tails in a manner that causes rifts in society, and causes enmity between brothers.
And this is rampant in society. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, forgive us, some people find pride and they take pride, and they gain happiness in passing information that has disastrous results from one party to the other. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam shut the door to unima when he said Sall Allahu alayhi wa sallam that detailed carrier, this No ma'am, will never ever antigen.
What a loss a person will be on the day of PM, if they are denied entry into
the shehryar, or servants of Allah, when it comes towards reconciling between brothers, places a concession and allows us to lie to cause a brotherhood between two brothers, that if two brothers are fighting, you are allowed to go to one brother and say, Oh, I met so and so. And he passes you set up. And then you go to that brother and say, Oh, I met so and so. And he passes you set up to Pamela.
When those two brothers meet, they have a reason to pass a lambda, even though they might have not passed the salon. But this concession should teach us the great muscle and benefit in keeping the hearts united. And this nm EMA works in total current contradiction to the concession that the Sharia has laid down for us for at least two the total breakdown between brothers, between communities, between committee members, between partners and shareholders and between family members. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us.
Our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He told his companions, they're only as happy. They're only as happy. Don't tell me things about my companions. Don't tell me things about my companions, for I love to walk, and to my companions, with a pure heart about them.
When somebody comes and tells you something about your brother that doesn't benefit your journey, I know you're up here. By default. It's the nature of men, especially when you have shavon who's an hidden enemy, he will cause that to manifest. And when you see that Muslim brother what will happen immediately you see him with a different paradigm.
With a different paradigm, you might have seen him as the best of all brothers now use him as a good brother who has this dark cloud over him. That's the nature of man. So take guidance from your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
another great evil of the tangle servants of Allah. And oh Children of Adam, is Allah Viva, will bata
backbiting and slandering and it's very important that we understand the reality of backbiting.
These two sins are from the major sins and these two sins constitute a great injustice to the servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala they violate the rights of the servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala and if you engage in the sin the know and understand that your forgiveness, pens their forgiveness
It's a very dangerous sin.
And today we have a people who do not even understand the reality of al Qaeda sometimes they backbite and when you tell them brother that's not backed by he says no, no, no, I can say this in front of that person.
Mashallah, so you can see it in front of him. So it's now it's Helen. It didn't it we came out of the vvv placement of LIBOR into something else.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
defined alakija he told the his companions aduna Malika, do you know what backbiting is? They said a lion is Ross will know best. This was the adverb with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He said the crooked
Rebbe is remembering your brother with qualities and what statements and with lines that he doesn't like you to remember him by.
Doesn't matter whether you can say it in front of him or you can't say it in front of him. The fact is, you are saying it in his absence and you saying something that he dislikes about he dislikes you to say that about him? That is Riba.
So someone from the companions asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and said of a writer in canopy of Hema aku What if I'm saying something about him? That's true. He is chubby.
Sometimes we say words loosely.
I shadow the law who and how one slipped up by saying a similar word. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said that if that word was mixed
with the waters of the oceans,
it would have made it sour and split.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said if you say something about him, which is true, then you have backbiting him that is backbiting. We're in lamea called V for pet battle. And if it's not in him, you have slandered him La ilaha illAllah. That is that is slander. When we say things about our Muslim Brothers, and we know it's not true about
we have a subhanho wa Taala protect us Alhamdulillah we live in communities where we try our level best to eat holla we make sure that we are very, very particular with what we eat and this is good. We even look after those e numbers at the back of the chocolate, e 275. And e 376. And so on and so forth. Right? And we write email to somebody and say, tell me about e one, e two, and he goes well, that's a new one. That's research e one e two, is it halal, or is it not Heller and so on and so forth? That's good. Alhamdulillah but little do we realize that sometimes we conduct our lives in such a way that for breakfast, we are consuming two kgs of haram meat and for lunch, maybe five kgs
of haram meat and at night maybe 15 kgs of haram meat for when you backbite Allah subhanho wa Taala likens it to eating the flesh of your dead brother La Ilaha Illa
La ilaha illa Allah and Allah says would any one of you love to eat the flesh of your dead brother?
May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us and May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us aware and May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a goodly word, I mean, now, there are times when we are allowed to mention the faults of our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters in the absence. However, we have to understand that these times are governed with rules and conditions. And from these rules and conditions is a lot harder to to cut down the criteria. When there is a need to say something behind the back of your fellow Muslim brother or sister. You say it as per need.
And that need is dealt with in light of the reality of that meet.
It's very important point. For example, you have a Muslim brother
Who doesn't pray, and he drinks alcohol and he has girlfriends.
You want to advise him He doesn't listen. So you decide to go to his father and speak about his sins to his father behind his back. When you go to his father or another party, there is no need for you to say he drinks alcohol and he has girlfriends. Rather start with the fact that he doesn't pray. That's the most important aspect for inshallah, if he fixes it, then a Salah puts an end to
that which is immoral, and that which Allah subhanho wa Taala dislikes. So look after hide his sins, keep a covenant his sins, and speak about him behind his back for the greater Messiah for the greater benefit. But as per the need don't use don't use it as a means of hamdulillah open ticket, I can go wild here. This is a concession from the Sharia, if I want to learn
how to cut the battery, and as for what we hear nowadays, where certain people come together to discuss the mistakes of
some of the students of knowledge, and it might not even be mistakes, and discuss some of the faults and mistakes or maybe not of some of the lemma, then this is a cleaver as well, irrespective of what they say, this is Reba for the people who look after the faults of others and deal with them.
They have specific niche group in society.
Mohammed Yusuf and Hussein.
And yes, we might justify it by saying that this is from a concept known as Joshua D. It is a from a concept that a llama of Hadith speak about which is criticizing people they criticize the narrators. So you know which narration is authentic and which narration isn't and so on and so forth. But understand are servants of Allah, that this also is not from Joshua taggie. And we don't have time to delve into the lesson. But for those who love to read, go open the books of Jennifer tardy, and see what to say about Josh Cochrane, criticizing contemporaries, and whether the critic whether a person who criticizes his contemporary is a valid criticism, go and read about that. And may Allah
subhanho wa Taala protect us, how many minutes do we have?
Very quickly, my dear brothers and sisters, one of the plagues of the tank that is prevalent in society is lying, is lying. And lying refers to saying something you know, is false. You know, it's false, but you relate in an incorrect manner. You know, a person didn't do something, but you say he did it. You know, you might have not done something, but you say you did it, you might have done something. And you say I didn't do it. This is a lie. And a lie is something abhorred by the Sharia. And Allah subhanho wa Taala said, while Allah,
Allah is Allah kabhi he, Allah said, Do not utter anything that you have no knowledge about.
Do not utter anything that you have no knowledge about. And then in the Sunnah, in the famous hadith of Ibn Mr. Ravi Allahu, and he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that indeed truthfulness, guides one towards piety and indeed piety guides one towards gender, or who do Illa Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala says, that the qualities of the people or gender or that the spoken word, and hirasawa sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that your goodly word leads you towards piety and piety leads you towards gender. And then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that,
indeed, telling lies, leads towards more sun and more sun leads towards the hellfire.
We Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us, we learn that being truthful breeds
piety, it breeds goodness and lying breeds evil and the son of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
If we look at the ambia of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala describes them obviously they were the best of all creation. And Allah subhanho wa Taala describes them as
honest Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before Islam had the title, the trustworthy, honest one, and Abubakar Abdullah, who was given the title acidic. And when Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about Ibrahim alayhis salam, what does he say? He says, was Kuru Phil kita ba ba he came in who can now say de la
Namibia, Allah subhanho wa Taala says and remind them in the book regarding Ibrahim. Indeed, he was a trustworthy, truthful prophet. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says about Islam he was co revealed kita B is Mariela in, who can also do
in law who can also do the work can also
be about what Allah says and remind them in the book about is married. Indeed he was true and honest to his promise. And when Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about Idris Allah subhanho wa Taala says was guru Phil kita ba degrees in who can now sweet d be Yeah, Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna says and remind them in the book about Idris Indeed, he was a truthful, honest prophet.
Our time has suddenly come to an end.
another five minutes This is Baraka Mashallah. This is Baraka.
So, we hear the description of Allah subhanho wa Taala pertaining to his prophets and Allah subhanho wa Taala describes his prophets as honest and truthful. Understand all servants of Allah and all children of Adam, that if you want protection on the day of the AMA, look after your tongues and be honest, for Allah subhanho wa Taala said that the day of the AMA is a day where those that were truthful in the dunya will benefit
those that were truthful in the dunya the truthfulness will benefit them and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that if you want Jenna with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if you want Jenna, in alpha dos Allah Allah then be from amongst those who tell the truth. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Why am I
levena Nirmala who are laying him, but Hola,
de no sweet D. Allah subhanho wa Taala says And whoever follows Allah and His Rasul, then
they will be with those that Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed Who are they? The prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala and immediately after mentioning the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala who does Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned a CD could be truthful, honest ones. So before you speak, think about the placement you want in gender. There are many evils of the tongue that I've cited here such as speaking about the Sharia without knowledge, this is something inshallah, that you can learn with your local Allah and Al Hamdulillah this machine is blessed with
greatest scholars will Illa Hill hunt, and for the purposes of ending the talk so that you can all observe ablution before Salah Felicia, I want to end off by saying, My dear brothers, my dear sisters, my dear mothers and fathers, we are in control of our choices and decisions. Before we open our mouth, let us think about what we discussed. And let us stop and think and ask ourselves is what I am about to say from that which is beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala or not, if it is beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala I will do it. And if it is not beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala I will refrain from it. And understand that in this dunya we all have heard this statement, you have the
right to remain silent.
You have the right to remain silent. And everything you say or do will be held against you in the court of law. This is in the dunya understand are servants of Allah and oh Children of Adam and oh
person that will stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala by yourself. Understand that you two have the right to remain silent. And that everything you say or do will be held against you in the court of Allah subhanho wa Taala we all know the Hadith of the bankrupt person. A person who meets Allah subhanho wa Taala with mountains of data, but he insulted somebody and he backed by heated about somebody and he lied and he misused his tank and he affected affected the rights of the servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the data
Piano is not a day where people settle out of court with payments that are made up of dinners and Durham's with payments that are made up of currency. The currency on the day of gamma is our deeds. We Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. You have a right to remain silent, for understand that Allah subhanho wa Taala said, ma Yellowfin domina Cole Illa Allah de rocky buena it that not a word is uttered, except that there is a watcher by him, ready to record what he says. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive our sins and our mistakes. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant is worth the tanks that constantly remember him and work in our favor. tanks that will be a blessing in our lives and
not a newcomer. Not a disaster. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from the truthful. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a tank that recites the Shahada La ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, when we breathe our last May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant his death while he's pleased with us, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a grave which is a garden from the gardens of Jenna, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a place underneath his arm from the day of piano. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us our books of deeds in our right hands. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant agenda with Muhammad Ali Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the place where the MBL will be
and the place with the truthful will be, Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is upon all evil. I love you all for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and thank you all for the opportunity. It's always good to come to Birmingham and worship Allah subhanho wa Taala with my fellow Muslims.
Everything correct said in this particular speech is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he's perfect and any mistakes are for myself and Siobhan and I see colossal panda who etalons forgiveness and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us a gathering that has heard a good word insha Allah and will make a strong resolve to practice upon what was heard, not just to hear a word and leave it as something heard, and not practiced upon. I mean, how the Allahu Alem or sallallahu wasallam or Baraka ala nabina, Muhammad Ali was a big marine Subhana Allah He will be having the use of panicum lahoma we have the connection to Allah, Allah, Allah and Mr. Furukawa to la
