So inshallah today's like I said, today's lecture is not going to be long. That is never the intention and the left
Marina de la ilaha
illa, Allah Allah,
And oftentimes, as Muslims were encouraged to work for the hearing,
and that we're going to be happy. You know, in the hereafter we want to be happy when we enter agenda, we're going to take salvation.
And a lot of times, and though that is absolutely
fantastic, give us genda to make us want to make us happy.
Even though that's the case, a lot of times we forget, or neglect, to mention the effect that man has on our lives, this life that we live in this dunya. And that, there's really no way to enjoy life. Without
that, and we're not going to taste the sweetness, and the delight of event until three things event. So the purpose of lighting was so upset that
he wasn't allowed.
That there are three qualities, whoever possesses those three qualities, he will taste the sweetness of men. That is that
he is going to enjoy the fact that he is a woman, that he is a believer.
before I mentioned those three qualities,
that that enjoyment is real.
The taste is real.
It's not experienced by some, because we suffer from illnesses and diseases that prevent us from tasting the sweetness of fame in
the same way that a person who is congested, who has the flu or cold or something like that, if you break down
the food that they love the most.
They're not going to enjoy it.
They can't even taste it, because of the illness that they're suffering from. And so many of us we we were diseased, our hearts are not right.
We allow evil things to creep in. And they disease us. And because and because we're not able to enjoy the sweetness of faith because of that.
So you need to look at these three qualities along with purified our hearts, we need to look at these three qualities. The first one is that the Prophet is allowed to Salinas
una llamada zoo, a hapa la even less,
that Allah and His Messenger
are more beloved to him to this person than anything else.
that's easier said than done. And that's a metric in and of itself.
How do you know? That alone is messenger more beloved to you anything else? Well, a lot of that is your behavior shows. It shows in how you prioritize your life.
Your life revolve around salon. If it does, then that's a good indication that a lot in this dean of this man or more the love to you than anything else. If not,
it could be a priority issue that indicates that there are things that are more important to
and there's a lot that could be said about that topic, but it wasn't something I wanted to talk about tonight.
The second one is more what I want to focus on. And that is HIPAA law.
that you love someone
you own love them for the sake of
there's nothing else
brings you close to this person or if that's not the catalyst for the love that you have for this individual. You don't share the same ethnic background, getting out from the sort of same socio economic class you
you don't share anything.
Except that Islam has brought you together.
From the same tribe, maybe not even in the same city, there's nothing but it's brought you together. And you love that person. Because you believe that they love a lot.
Because they have a closeness to Allah. Because something that they're doing for the deen of Allah pets, it makes you love them.
And that's the only reason there's no business ties, you don't get any fringe benefits from the relationship that you have with this person. You love them for love. When you do
you love a loss of habitat and you love for the sake
you are on the path to taste the sweetness of
the third and final quality that the prophecy celebration here. This
was a Yamaha enduro, the
bad part of La will mean
that he hates to return to display.
After a loss of Hannah, what's Allah has saved him from
the same way that he would hate to be thrown into the fire, which would be the result of returning back to to disbelief. And so because he tasted that sweetness of faith, he hates that it's opposite. All right.
As I mentioned, that wasn't the topic that that's actually
those three are not the topic, the topic is that middle point, loving someone for a long
And the reason why it's, it's an important topic is because in general,
hopefully that's our situation.
We will look around the room near we're not from the same places, many of us have various generations, different professions, the thing that brought us together was
and that bond that we share
with one another, sitting right here today and with the other Muslims that she finds she has a beautiful thing. Because last week I was traveling for example. And I was in the airport with another brother we were together. And there was an older sister there with the with a T bar on each end.
And we just had somebody
that the feeling that she must have had to know that there are other Muslims, I mean, she could obviously see the Muslim but just that feeling to know that
there's somebody else that shares my faith that shares my values.
And they're gonna be on the plane.
I don't know who she was, I have no idea I didn't see her before act. But the fact remains is that Islam has created this bond between us that is
different than and in many cases strong advantage of bonds that we share with our own biological relatives.
And allows for him to either call those brothers in the crime in
the believers or blood brothers in the profit, it is fun to see them. When he came to Medina, one of the first things that he did, and in fact, on a social level,
the first thing that the probability is selected selected was to create the problem.
Set the fact that he would pair up a mahadji and somebody that came from mentor would pair them up with the and sorry, with somebody from Medina. And he made them brothers to the point that if one of them died, he would inherit the other, the other would inherit,
like real brothers. Right? But notice that in the eye and the
last time it says in demand.
are believers of brothers. So reconcile between your brothers fix things make things right. Why? Because just like brothers that grew up in a household together, y'all gonna fight sometimes you could be some issues.
But you recognize at the end of the day that your family and your brothers so make things right. And so the same way that we look at how to build brotherhood. We also have to look at the things that
are disruptive to brotherhood, that hurt the Brotherhood, that after being together cause people
To go apart, all right, so here's a comprehensive Hadith of the Prophet it is cycle setting that we will spend more than seven or eight minutes on, and then we can continue to tap in inshallah tada at the next, you know, family list is called family dinner a family night,
at the next family night inshallah, because the point is to give us this broad overview of how we should behave with one another, have certain etiquettes that need to observe, and how to preserve our brotherhood and to keep it from being too short.
So the Prophet is salatu salam
says, the Hadees collected by Muslim
lands has to do with issue one.
All right, so this is gonna take this heavy
sentence by sentence,
the first part of this it says
and do not artificially raise prices on one another
that hate one another.
Do not turn your backs on one another, and do not undercut each other when in sales transaction.
So how many things did you hear that the processor itself told us not to do?
Seven, minus? minus two. So how many do we have? Five? Bring it back?
No, actually, you're done. You gave us seven.
The rest of the brothers and sisters
give you extra
The first one, because because listen, this is this is your profit. I this is not my word. If the promise I settled was sitting in front of you, you would want to know what he's saying. So listen to what he's saying. It's a kind of law
time and will, you know, he mentioned to some of the companions
that if it was the all Heaven, then that Eve, and if it was dollars and cents that we were passing out here, everybody be racist, everybody be in line trying to get something.
But this is the inheritance that the probably some of left behind, he didn't he didn't leave behind, didn't have enough, he didn't he buy gold and silver force. He left behind him he left behind now. So our Prophet
has said, don't do these five things. all believers, letter houses don't envy one another. Remember, number one is what
led to an edge issue from an edge, which which the the root of the word is to be deceitful. But here it's referring to artificial raising of prices. So for example,
is a big going on
an auction. And this person is about to get it for $100. And he just like
one fish, just so he has to pay for you all you want to know he wants to get back. So you go 150
it could be because you know the the seller, and you want him to get a higher price. Because as we say in English, you're an agent, you just don't want to get it.
So don't artificially raise prices that creates bad blood between the believers. Well as bad
don't hate each other.
Right? Well as a dad,
which means don't turn your backs on one another.
So you may that could have multiple implications. But a lot of times it's referring to you know how you see somebody you act like you don't see, because you don't want to talk to
you don't want to have any kind of relationship with them. This is
to turn your backs.
So don't don't be envious. Don't be deceitful and artificially raise prices. Don't hate one another. Don't turn your backs on one another. Well that a bit Robin kaleida
and do not undercut one another. So that that refers to. For example,
let's say Dr. accent
You know his practice.
He says come you can get the service done in my, you know, my practice for $50. And other doctors listening. He says how much reason says $50 an hour do the same thing for 40
happens in sales and things like this. So if we if we just look at these five, what is the
universal concept of the process of this
competition, competition is great.
cutthroat this round
English word, but it's great.
Right? So, so in other words, don't do anything
that is going to harm your brother,
or worrying about bad blood between Muslims. And the in the envy one, notice there's a promise I started with him to not be envious of one another. envy. Envy means
that you despise blessing that another person
you despise that that person has that lesson.
And as many of the scholars have mentioned, this, often times, in most cases is between people have the same profession, or people who share something in common with one another. It doesn't normally. So for example, in general, you're not going to find a doctor who envies an athlete, or an athlete who envies a businessman, or businessman who embodies a scholar, scholars, whatever you want, doctors, whatever you want to know what you're doing. It's your brain. Right?
It may even transcend to ethnicities. Right? And so you'll find that if the brothers Pakistani,
and the Palestinian brother winds up with a brand new 2018 Mercedes. He's like subotica love
with another Pakistani comes with the music.
with gender. So anyway, the point is that
hassad is what Emily is one
that you desire,
that he never let somebody tell you, you despise the fact that somebody else has this.
Somebody else as this
now has, it is a huge problem. Because at the end of the day,
what's happening here? Who is the one that
that gave this person? what it is that they
love, I love that it could be material. Like you said, that person has a nice house.
person has a nice car, who is a good blessing with a loss of habitat.
Or it could be a talent.
Yes, it could be someone's intellect, the fact that they have knowledge that they're academically inclined that they have an athletic talent or anything along those lines. I was so jealous, the one that gave that to them. So when you disliked
them, basically you're saying, Oh my God, why would you give him that? Don't you know that I deserved more than him?
So you're questioning the last part, that is the truth.
It also could be well, who knows if he really has a sound in his heart, he was the one who has always given him more to feed. That's fine,
too, the envy data we don't know yet exactly. But the whole point is one that a person is questioning with a lot
of lies. And that's why hazard is so dangerous, or hazardous or dangerous. And it's one of the main factors that lead to the destruction of the system. And if you look at across the board, and you look at communities that have been destroyed,
much of it comes from that disease.
It comes from that disease. All right. So again, this is not the topic. I'm going to finish up with just a few shout outs so that we can
we can eat and then we can pray. So I was supposed to do a long time. But I just want us to understand this heavy recovering from the property. So I have to say
Because his words are actually enough.
So the processor goes on to say, look at the lung,
and being of slaves of alone, brothers.
And we use that term
data we shouldn't shy away from them.
We haven't mentioned, we should submit,
to submit fully to whatever lots of data commands us to do. And in our freedom is in that submission,
we submit to a loss of habitat and we we willingly become this thing.
We are, we are the slaves of the master King, and nobody else can enslave us and
we're not going to bow down to any other authority, or anything else, because we are slaves of Allah subhana wa Tada. And his hand is the dominion of the heavens on earth.
And mostly no Muslim.
Muslim, is the brother of another Muslim
believer who was a guru.
Well, a few.
Again, three things here.
The Muslim is the brother of another Muslim, is not wrong. And we all know we're doing wrong is. And so a Muslim does not wrong, another Muslim. And when you see that happening, you have to check that on the Muslim
because that's what's going to cause destruction. And a lot of times, it's not going to stop at the person is going to go to a family thing to a community thing. Right? After Muslim, the Muslim is the brother of another person who does not wronged him. When
he does that, for safe him, he does not abandon him. In colloquial terms, he doesn't even he doesn't even have to drive most of his lack
And he does not belittle him
does involve him. He doesn't say he doesn't.
A Muslim doesn't look down on another Muslims. It doesn't matter what his ethnicity, though. He's whatever he is, so he looks down on him. And you see this, maybe not so much in this country. But in other lands, you'll see the fact that because this one is, you know, particular nationality, and that one is Bengali looks down on it.
Certainly because of the ethnicity.
He doesn't look down on his profession is not as prestigious as mine. So he goes down, or we don't do.
Because of the promise of it was someone who went on to say, a tough squat, and all that and pointed to his chest three times, and tougher and tougher and
tougher. emanates from here. This is the house of tough your piety, your God consciousness. And so you have to work on the heart, you have to be conscious of the heart.
It has to be in menasha. And yeah,
the process goes on to say it is enough to be considered evil.
That a Muslim.
Notice this point.
Because literally, when you when you look down on someone, then that usually
means that you have what your chest
And a problem. So I sort of said that no one will enter gender who has even a mustard seed in his chest. So you're looking down on other Muslims.
This usually is an indication of kidney problems, right? Snowden.
And then he finishes with a very comprehensive statement.
And if we get the comprehensive statement that we'll be able to establish the proper balance. Probably some says must be the island was the
entirety of a Muslim is sacred to the other Muslim.
I hold you to be someone who is I cannot violate you at all because you are a Muslim. The entirety of the Muslim
is sacred to the other Muslim, his life.
His wealth and his honor the process.
bite other Muslims.
We don't do something that would infringe upon any of their rights. They're both
not Steve a Muslim out of his money.
And you definitely don't do anything that would infringe
To find his life, what is the ability to live with dignity and honor?
these broad rules that the prophet SAW
as mentioned that this heavy are the foundation of what is necessary for the start rather than each word not each of this, that each sentence but each word that the Prophet
mentioned in this Hajji is deserving of its own time deserving of his own lecture. And perhaps in the near future, we can deal with some of this in a bit more detail and allows you can always add in those best so low as
an enemy number
