00:00:04--> 00:00:05

And then finally learn

00:00:08--> 00:00:09

for follow

00:00:44--> 00:00:45

on when he sat

00:00:49--> 00:00:52

in the lobby Can you come up BAM?

00:00:53--> 00:00:56

Yeah You're welcome. Yeah you're Latina.

00:00:58--> 00:01:00

EDA, you slip

00:01:05--> 00:01:08

and falls in alima America now circle.

00:01:10--> 00:01:14

We're heavy. Have you Mohammed Al Salam it was Sunday worship.

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

Allah Allah, Allah Allah.

00:01:24--> 00:01:24

My

00:01:26--> 00:01:49

brothers and sisters in Islam. As you all know, we are coming up by the month of on the line. And the closer we get to on the line, it is important for us to examine the characteristics and the qualities of the people who have a tough one.

00:01:52--> 00:02:13

It is not as important that we look at the do's and don'ts of Ramadan. Most of the Muslims notice you know that you're not supposed to eat and drink and that you refrain from relations with your wife from the time of the ban of fudger until Monday live and all of these things that we understand the objective of Ramadan is what

00:02:14--> 00:02:50

the objective of Ramadan is to attain template. It's not just that you refrain from food and drinking that you starve all day. And that you remember all of the poor people who can't eat is one of the wisdoms if you will of Ramadan that we understand those things, but that is not the objective of Ramadan that is not why Allah subhana wa tada prescribed for us a month of fasting, he prescribed a month of fasting so that we become more conscious of him some kind of a time, so that we grow and develop tougher

00:02:52--> 00:02:57

that we are God fearing that we are more aware of him. So

00:02:58--> 00:03:10

this is the reason why fasting was prescribed. So because of that, it is important for us to look at what exactly are the characteristics of the people went up?

00:03:12--> 00:03:26

Meaning that a loss of habitat and endocrine is explained to us that the tokina, those who do ABCD these are the mental P. If we don't have those qualities, then we are not from them. And it's really that simple.

00:03:27--> 00:03:59

And so we had to set attaining those qualities as a goal that we achieve in the month of Ramadan, we need to start setting those goals. Now. The same way that many people know where they're going to break their fantasy of if towards scheduling these types of things from chat, then you need to have the same kind of diligence in setting your goals for the month of Ramadan, that is to attain certain characteristics. And so there are several places in the Quran

00:04:00--> 00:04:07

where Allah subhanho wa Taala describes for us the characteristics of the tepee.

00:04:08--> 00:04:22

And one such eye or passage in the Quran, Allah subhana wa tada says, We're sorry, you know, my feelings have become one gentleman who has some way to work

00:04:24--> 00:04:28

out who has some way to wake up Allah

00:04:29--> 00:04:39

says to race to hasten towards the forgiveness of your Lord and a garden whose width is that of the heavens and the earth.

00:04:40--> 00:04:47

And some of the scholars used to say woe to the one who doesn't find a place and agenda that is that expensive.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

The earth and the heavens put together make the width of gentlemen. Wait that will be it has been prepared.

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

For those who have suffered and who are a must have died. It goes on to say,

00:05:06--> 00:05:10

Allah de Kooning savoir, he was the one

00:05:11--> 00:05:32

when cow the mean and Eva will live in and the next below you hit with mercy. So we mentioned three things here, about the people of template. They are those who spent at times of prosperity and adversity. Even when things are tight, they still give for a loss of power.

00:05:34--> 00:05:40

And when they had they give more, this is a quality of the people template if you do not give something.

00:05:42--> 00:05:48

If you do not give charity, if you don't spend feasibly the length, you cannot be from them. It's impossible.

00:05:49--> 00:06:16

The second thing will count the meaning of life. Those who repress their anger, you hear about anger management, for example, those who even when they get angry, they're able to control themselves. They don't act down when they're angry. The quality of the opinion of every time you get angry, you have an outburst. You hurt someone you hit someone you insult someone, you can't be from the looks of me.

00:06:17--> 00:06:25

And you have not you will not achieve the objective for which Ramadan was prescribed to fasting Ramadan was prescribed.

00:06:27--> 00:06:40

And then the third quality and this is what we're going to talk about today. Shalom time. And practice is the best of those qualities. Well, Naveen and Emacs, those who pardon the people.

00:06:41--> 00:06:47

What does that mean to party people, it means you don't seek retribution, it means somebody has wronged you.

00:06:48--> 00:06:49

And you let it go.

00:06:50--> 00:06:59

You don't seek to meet, you know, they're impression of you and they're wrong of you with an opposite wrong.

00:07:00--> 00:07:07

Now, that does not mean and we'll talk about this a little later in shallow time, it doesn't mean that you don't have the right to respond.

00:07:08--> 00:07:11

Nor does it mean that you turn out that cheap, we don't have that concept in Islam.

00:07:12--> 00:07:24

But it does mean that you let it go, that you forgive them for what they have done that you excuse the wrong that they have done to you. And if you can't get to that level, then you can't have

00:07:26--> 00:07:27

you are not

00:07:28--> 00:07:34

going to be bad. And believe that you should get all of your eggs in this life

00:07:36--> 00:07:37

from everyone who has done you wrong.

00:07:39--> 00:07:59

And somebody might ask what is the relationship then between taqwa and, and pardoning people? How are they related? How is my piety and my consciousness of Allah Subhana data related to my ability and my desire to overlook people's faults in the wrongs that they have done?

00:08:01--> 00:08:04

So to understand that we have to look at the highest.

00:08:05--> 00:08:18

Why don't people forgive other people? Once we understand the answer to that question, that we understand the relationship between mankind, the reason why many people do not forgive others,

00:08:19--> 00:08:23

is because they believe that they will look weak in front of the people.

00:08:25--> 00:08:26

If I forgive him,

00:08:27--> 00:08:28

the people

00:08:29--> 00:08:36

are going to think that I am weak, my community is going to blame me for being soft.

00:08:37--> 00:08:41

people on the internet are going to talk about me because I don't respond.

00:08:43--> 00:08:55

And so because of that, a person now respond, they are propelled by what people think about them, not what Allah subhana wa tada is going to judge them for it.

00:08:57--> 00:09:22

And so their behavior is being controlled, actually by people, and not by lots of pilots. And we can see the connection there between Alaska which is the party and between Tacoma having true consciousness of who will have some kind of anxiety that isn't being aware of. But if we are, and this is why our Prophet alayhi salatu salam made it very clear to us that this is not the case.

00:09:23--> 00:09:28

And the famous Hadith where the Prophet alayhi wa sallam said, Man, nothing else like sunup until midnight.

00:09:30--> 00:09:31

Just follow this hadith.

00:09:32--> 00:09:34

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said

00:09:35--> 00:09:40

that wealth is that decreased by sudden

00:09:41--> 00:09:53

when you give a charity, your wealth doesn't increase. Somebody might say, wait a minute, I have $100 in my bank. If I give 40 away to dimension, that's going to be 60 bucks in my pocket, that means I have less.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

So my wealth decreased, but the reality is

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

Is that here when you're doing charity, you're doing business with a loss.

00:10:05--> 00:10:11

And so by giving your charity yeah you may only have 60 left in your pocket but you've deposited 40 for the year.

00:10:13--> 00:10:29

And when you deposit in a loss account without his bank, and that Bank of Canada title when you deposit for your hereafter, allies have a job rewarding 10 times over 50 times over 100 times over up to 700 times when Masha Allah whatever Allah, Allah wills

00:10:30--> 00:10:33

so you're not losing anything. When you get

00:10:34--> 00:10:48

it this is deep because the profits ally with some as informative as the things are not always as they seem. And then the product is aligned with some say my Mazda don't love what I've done in the past when in there is

00:10:50--> 00:11:01

a loss of power to either increases his service in honor and in might and strength when need pardon someone.

00:11:02--> 00:11:08

Now the way we look at it is is we that's why he didn't do anything. He didn't do anything because he couldn't do anything.

00:11:09--> 00:11:24

He wanted that reward from a loss of kind of autonomy for men as well wa Salaam forgivable Allah, whoever forgives and reconciles these things, right, he fixes those things, his reward is with a lump sum penalty.

00:11:26--> 00:11:38

So he is looking for that reward with the lies and window and allow ratings. And because of that, even if he thinks that the people are going to look at him as being soft, look at him as being weak.

00:11:40--> 00:11:50

He no longer cares, the way that the people are looking at and aligns with your promise that he's going to raise him in time. And so eventually, this is going to be known even amongst the people.

00:11:52--> 00:11:59

And then the problem is a lie to themselves. Well, my job is to lay a level of AI, and no one humbles himself.

00:12:01--> 00:12:03

Except that a lateral delt raises him.

00:12:04--> 00:12:32

And so when we think about this, how do we understand that connection between someone and party, the person who pardon someone is not going to get a reward from that person, they're not going to get their rights back from that person. But they don't want their their rights back. And they don't want their reward from that scheme versus a person who has nothing to offer him anyway. They want their reward from

00:12:34--> 00:12:35

the one who is generous.

00:12:37--> 00:12:38

And so they forget

00:12:39--> 00:12:42

the the other point, and not to belabor the issue

00:12:44--> 00:12:44

is that

00:12:46--> 00:12:55

the other reason why people tend not to forgive others, and not to party them is because they have been self serving.

00:12:56--> 00:13:12

So even if it's not about the people, they have something in them that says I gotta get him back. I need revenge, and they hold a grudge in their chest until I get them back. But the prophet is selected to sit in the back take revenge as he

00:13:13--> 00:13:16

narrated the Promise Alliance of never took revenge for himself.

00:13:19--> 00:13:32

Only when Allah subhanho wa Taala his limits had been violated and transgressed the property. So why would someone take revenge for Allah sake, not for his own sake, we know that that may grant the Prophet is like to say,

00:13:34--> 00:13:45

though, is that the market will use when to the point that I like the mark on the neck of the Prophet is like he was saying, he said, Give me from the money that Allah has given you. And he told him to give him some money.

00:13:46--> 00:13:57

I mean, there's so many examples from the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam, and from the stories of the NBN in general, when they forgave people when they overlooked the wrong that hadn't been done to them.

00:13:58--> 00:14:03

And so it's very important that we, as we strive towards tough one,

00:14:04--> 00:14:14

that we get it take ourselves out of the equation, that we be servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala and not servants of ourselves.

00:14:15--> 00:14:28

What happens when you want revenge is that you are trying to fulfill some desire that you have inside of yourself. And that equation is very clear. The more that you serve yourself, the less you will be serving the love.

00:14:30--> 00:14:35

And the more you serve allies, the less that you're knifes and your ego

00:14:36--> 00:14:39

because you're a true servant of a lump sum animal.

00:14:42--> 00:14:44

I want you all to imagine right now

00:14:47--> 00:14:56

that you are somebody who has a very prominent position in your community, in your profession, whatever it is that you do

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

and that your spouse

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

has been accused of adultery

00:15:04--> 00:15:07

that someone told you that your wife

00:15:09--> 00:15:12

told you that your husband was out there with some other woman.

00:15:15--> 00:15:16

This is the accusation.

00:15:18--> 00:15:26

And quite frankly, you can't account for their whereabouts at that particular time that they were accused of adultery.

00:15:28--> 00:15:35

Now, you as a primary person in the community, imagine now is spreading, so and so's wife.

00:15:36--> 00:15:39

so and so's husband has committed adultery.

00:15:41--> 00:15:56

Imagine how you feel, what does that do to the household? What does it do to the trust that is between the two spouses, for one of them to have been accused of adultery, but apparently there's even some evidence.

00:15:58--> 00:16:02

Imagine what that does to the family structure.

00:16:04--> 00:16:13

Man, that being the case, think about the story of our mother, and he shall be alone and sad. And he was accused of that very thing.

00:16:14--> 00:16:26

Who was accused of having committed adultery while she was married to the Prophet sallallahu. It was something imagine what that did to the house? Well, we don't have to imagine we had the story.

00:16:28--> 00:16:30

Imagine how her father Robbie alone,

00:16:31--> 00:16:42

bucket of sick people. Imagine how he felt about the people who accused his daughter of doing such an act, even though he raised him to be chaste and pure.

00:16:43--> 00:17:05

And he knows that this is not something that she would ever do, because of our fear of a loss of Hannah who attack. He knows that. So he knows that the people who are accusing her are lying. Now let's go even a step further. One of the people who was out there spreading that rumor about it shouldn't be alone

00:17:07--> 00:17:09

was added back his own cousin.

00:17:12--> 00:17:14

It was his cousin, your family member now

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

is accusing your daughter,

00:17:18--> 00:17:21

the mother, the believers are committing adultery.

00:17:22--> 00:17:23

That's what separate.

00:17:24--> 00:17:32

Miss sign was broke. He was poor. And the only person who used to take care of him was empty bucket and deep himself.

00:17:33--> 00:17:48

He was the one who spent on me, so that he can survive so that he could have a sustenance and after all that good that was done to him. He went back now. I mean, just think about it. This is your friend, this is your cousin, you take care of him. And then he accuses your daughter

00:17:49--> 00:17:51

of committing adultery and it's a lie.

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

And so he sports or loves

00:17:56--> 00:18:01

that he would never spend anything else on Myspace

00:18:03--> 00:18:18

after the situation with 70 and allows the panel to reveal those verses which will be recited until Yeoman piano, declaring it shall not be alone sad and had a sense of what she had been accused

00:18:20--> 00:18:20

a lot.

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

While I

00:18:28--> 00:18:30

was sad to

00:18:34--> 00:18:35

say in

00:18:37--> 00:18:59

a large data set those who have been given wealth and bounty and plenty from Allah to not swear that they won't give that they will no longer give to their kinsmen, their relatives and the poor. And those who may digital feasibility lab misfire, even though he got caught up in that he was from the Menagerie

00:19:01--> 00:19:06

but what did he say? Well, yak fu while you

00:19:07--> 00:19:10

let them pardon them, let them overlook them.

00:19:12--> 00:19:12

And yes,

00:19:14--> 00:19:26

party and overlook allegedly. And don't feel loved when they come with you not Don't you love that Allah forgive you will love before Rahim Allah.

00:19:28--> 00:19:33

He is the most forgiving and the Most Merciful when that verse was revealed.

00:19:34--> 00:19:38

And the bucket around the low tide and who said

00:19:39--> 00:19:41

it better will lie he

00:19:42--> 00:19:47

certainly will lie by love My Lord, a man.

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

We love that you should forgive us an apple but that went back to spending on this man with us his daughter, the mother of the believers. He went back to school

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

on him and treating him the same way that he did. Before the accusation hanging, he let it go.

00:20:08--> 00:20:15

He forgave him, he partied hard. So no matter what you're dealing with in life, someone accuse you of something.

00:20:16--> 00:20:20

Someone took your property unjustly.

00:20:22--> 00:20:41

Someone is insulting you on social media, someone is violating your rights, someone overcharged for something, whatever the case may be, in general, we are not dealing with a situation that is anywhere similar to what happened to Abu Bakar

00:20:42--> 00:20:44

and his daughter all the time, and

00:20:47--> 00:20:59

we're not dealing with anything like that. So if we want to be from the tepee, and we want to attain the real reward that is coming up in the month of Ramadan,

00:21:00--> 00:21:13

we have to get over ourselves. The bottom line, we have to stop tripping over our own egos, we have to put that to the side and become true servants of Allah subhana wa Tada. And truth

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

salatu salam

00:21:36--> 00:21:49

ala and he was like the woman. And here's just some important points, perhaps some misconceptions, and other important points that we need to talk about. In conclusion of this.

00:21:50--> 00:21:54

The first of those points is for you guys.

00:21:55--> 00:22:18

To be aware, if you have wronged someone, if you have wronged someone, you need to go fix that. You need to go reconcile, don't start going around to people that you have wronged and you start reciting them verses about Apple, you know, pardoning and forgiving, and you should forgive me for what I did. But no, you need to fix that situation. If they don't forgive you, they say, right.

00:22:20--> 00:23:01

You can go now and try to make them feel bad, because you did something wrong. And that's what a lot of people do. Every time they hear something in football, it's always about somebody else, not about them. How they use this is so that they can, you know, finagle their way into somebody else's rights. And so it's important that you understand that you don't take these ions. And now try to go tell someone else to forgive and to party. After you've done something wrong, fix whatever it is that you have done wrong, and try to do that as soon as possible. Because you don't know when the days when to come when fixing the wrong is not going to be about asking someone to forgive is going

00:23:01--> 00:23:07

to it's not going to be about dollars and cents on that day is only goodies and baddies. That's the commodity of the year. And

00:23:08--> 00:23:10

the second point

00:23:11--> 00:23:14

is that not everyone deserves to be pardoned.

00:23:16--> 00:23:22

If someone is by pardoning them, they are going to continue with their transgression

00:23:23--> 00:23:31

by pardoning them, they're going to do to other people what they did to you, that party then is not legislated.

00:23:32--> 00:23:54

You need to stop that person to the best of your ability, if they need to be arrested, so be if they need to be exposed. So be because if they if you forgiving them only allows them to continue and this is not considered to be from the party that is legislated. And that is why a lot of how it's added says for men

00:23:56--> 00:23:57

what else Lucha

00:23:58--> 00:24:15

Libre whoever parties and rectifies the situation and his rewards with the loss of many of the scholars who have said that this is Allah subhanho wa Taala has made a laughable pardoning conditional upon his life

00:24:16--> 00:24:24

that you're forgiving someone that you're pardoning them is conditional that that will bring about rectification.

00:24:25--> 00:24:51

And if it does not mean that this person is going to continue in their criminal behavior, then it is not legislated that you forgive them and that you should hold them to the fullest extent of the laws they say and that you should hold them to account for the wrongs that they have done. The third thing next to last is that pardoning is only pardoning when you can do something about it.

00:24:52--> 00:24:58

Some people say, Oh, no, no, I let it go. But then they still talk about it all the time. Someone said this to me so much, but I let it go for lunch.

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

Talking about. And if you really let it go, and it was really for lunch turns out and then you remain silent, there's nothing else to talk about.

00:25:08--> 00:25:22

Otherwise you may be falling into something greater, which is that you want to be crazy. You want to be looked at as being someone who parties, people you want to be looked at as having the qualities of the people are tougher, when in reality, you just simply couldn't do anything about it.

00:25:24--> 00:25:34

That's not considered to be alive. The last thing that I want to mention is directly related to Ramadan. And it shows us the importance of Allah

00:25:35--> 00:25:40

is that he shall not be alone tired and then went to the Prophet so

00:25:42--> 00:25:49

she asked him about the greatest night of the year. That night isn't Ramadan that night?

00:25:50--> 00:25:52

She said O Messenger of Allah.

00:25:54--> 00:26:21
