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

Villa rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim lesson number 285 sola to solve I am number one to four

00:00:10--> 00:00:16

Sora Joseph is a mighty surah and it has 14 verses and about 900 hoof

00:00:17--> 00:00:31

this aura of suffering what is a soft mean? rose this sort of reiterates the same message that is common to all of the sources of the streets, which is supporting the aid in the deen of Allah

00:00:32--> 00:00:40

being of the Hezbollah and at the same time, maintaining a balance between the as well as dounia

00:00:41--> 00:00:46

being focused on the Acura but at the same time not getting swayed by this linear

00:00:47--> 00:01:12

and you will notice that in these soldiers, many things are taught which are pertaining to supporting the working for the dean that first of all a person's priority should be Allah and His messenger and the deen of Allah and then a person must also be very sincere in his commitment. And at the same time with sincerity there should also be unity. As we learned earlier,

00:01:13--> 00:01:36

that the example of the unsolved the margerine it was given into a threshold that how they were so united and it wasn't just the inside Mahajan. But Allah also gives the example of Medina topo.org even and later on when Medina gentlemen Bardeen, meaning the tablet, the data and all of the data generations, that there must be unity amongst the Muslims.

00:01:37--> 00:01:51

Because in order to support the Yes, one should be committed himself. Yes, he should be sincere. But at the same time, there must also be unity. Because if people are not united, they cannot work for the same goal.

00:01:52--> 00:01:59

And what is it that brings about unity in people, when they share the same goal, when they have the same goal.

00:02:00--> 00:02:40

And remember, in order to stay united, you have to sacrifice a lot. You have to give up your ego, you have to do things which you don't like. You have to accept other people's superiority. But all of this is necessary. Why? In order to support the deen of Allah, we learned earlier that women are solo for who do who woman and her kumanovo Fanta who why accept the authority of the leader that is necessary and at the same time, believers should also be united themselves, because without it, the work of the dean cannot go forward.

00:02:42--> 00:03:15

Bismillah Ar Rahman Rahim sub berhenti lahemaa for similarity when I fill out the whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth, it exalts Allah, or whoever Aziz and Hakeem and he is the Exalted in Might, the Wise, sort of the Sufis also have the most of the head and it begins with sub Baha, that Glorified is Allah. Exalted is Allah burfict is Allah and everything in the heavens and the earth, accepts his glory.

00:03:17--> 00:03:22

Everything in the heavens and the earth glorifies him and he is a disease and also hacking.

00:03:24--> 00:03:50

Yeah, you have Latina, Manu, all you who have believed limitar coluna Merlot of our Loon. Why do you say that which you do not do? All you will have believed Lima taco Luna, Lima, this is a combination of Li and Ma. Li, is of Darlene lanterra li and man, this man is actually abbreviated from his of his home.

00:03:51--> 00:04:02

So Lima together, for what reason? Why, for what purpose? Why is it that the coluna you say mulata for alone what you do not do?

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

Meaning Why is there a discrepancy in your words and actions?

00:04:09--> 00:04:13

Why is it that your words and actions are not coherent?

00:04:14--> 00:04:18

Why is it that you say one thing and you do something else?

00:04:19--> 00:04:37

If you think about it, having a discrepancy in words and actions meaning a person says something else and does something else, what is this a moral defect? This shows that a person is not honest, this shows that a person is being treacherous, that he is not trustworthy, he is not reliable.

00:04:38--> 00:04:48

And if a person has such a moral defect and that is a sign of moral decline, and when people are suffering from moral decline, then they cannot work dedicatedly for admission.

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

So limit okolona malata alone. Why is it that you say that which you do not do? Meaning say that which you do and do that with

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

You say you will do.

00:05:02--> 00:05:12

We learned that once I've done live in Salaam and some other companions were sitting together and they said, if we only knew the dearest could actions to Allah we will perform them.

00:05:14--> 00:05:46

If we could only come to know what is it that Allah loves a lot, if we could come to know about those actions, we would do them. So what happened? Allah subhanaw taala inform them about the dearest actions to him how we learn in this ayah in the law, your hibel Latina ukata Luna visa v his of unknown banana muscles, that Allah loves those people who fight in his way how together in rows as if they are a firm structure. So in other words, ally inform the people about what he likes,

00:05:47--> 00:05:53

what is of the most dearest actions to him and witches, fighting in the way of Allah.

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

Now, fighting in the way of Allah, is that something easy to do?

00:05:59--> 00:06:09

It's not something easy to do. It's very difficult. And we see that the believers initially when they were not allowed to fight, how badly they wanted to fight in the river.

00:06:11--> 00:06:38

But later on when the command was given, there were some people who were hesitant. Some people who weren't willing, and this has mentioned many times in the Quran, for example, instead of Mohammed 820, we learn way akula Latina amanu Lola luzira Torah, for either own Zilla to Rotten Tomato widow kill Rafi healthy tyloo aten Medina kulu Bay Maradona, young Luna la kinosol Moshi la human and modes

00:06:39--> 00:06:40

meaning they didn't want to fight.

00:06:42--> 00:07:06

Similarly in certain Missa is 77 we learn lm tala in a Latina kilala home Khufu idea come with a famous salata later will add to the CATA fellow Makati Birla human capital, either for you coming home he has shown and NASA the Hershey Attila a shed the Hershey wirkkala robina, Lima Casa de la Nikita Lola, a hardener in a Gillian curry.

00:07:08--> 00:07:26

So the believers they initially requested this is what they desire. This is what they wanted to fight in the way of Allah. And they wanted to do those actions which please Allah. But when they were told, this is what you have to do. They weren't exactly ready. They were hesitant. They stayed back, some of them.

00:07:28--> 00:07:33

So over here, Allah soprano Tada, he says Lima, Hakuna Matata for

00:07:35--> 00:07:49

now, although behind the revelation of this ayah is a particular incident, which is the one that I just mentioned to you, of those companions who were expressing their desire to know that which Allah likes. However, remember that in this is a lesson for everyone.

00:07:51--> 00:07:54

In this is a lesson for all believers, for all of us.

00:07:55--> 00:08:23

We see that sometimes we're very enthusiastic about something, we're very emotional. And out of that enthusiasm, out of that love out of that emotion. We make great claims. We make big commitments, and we say, tell us what to do. And we'll do it. Give us anything, we'll do it any work you give me I'll do it. But when actually the work is given, then we say no, I think I'm too busy.

00:08:24--> 00:08:47

No, I don't think this suits me. No, I think I'm worth more. It happens sometimes. That out of enthusiasm, we save big things we make great claims. But when the time to act comes, then what happens our eagerness is not there anymore. It has though it has left us and we find it very difficult to do those actions.

00:08:48--> 00:09:26

So over here, Allah says Lima, Hakuna Matata. Why do you say that which you do not do? Why did you say you will do it and when the time comes to do it, you're not doing it? Because this attitude does not suit the believers. It does not suit a sincere believer. Who is it sincere believer that there is no discrepancy in his words and actions. Whatever he says he does it. If he makes a commitment, he fulfills it. If he makes a promise, he fulfills it. And this promise could be with people. And it could also be with Allah subhanaw taala.

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

We learn incidental ourselves at 23. a las panatela describes the true believers as what meaning meaning erigeron Sakuma de la la among the believers are men, true to what they promised Allah. among the believers are those men who are true to the promise that they made with Allah. They made promises with Allah, and they actually fulfilled them. They promised that they would spend in his way and when the time came, they actually spent in his way they promised

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

They would fight in his way. And when the time came, they actually did that.

00:10:05--> 00:10:18

For men home and cadorna, who among them is He who has fulfilled his vow? his vow, meaning among them as he who has even given up his life for the sake of Allah, meaning he has been martyred

00:10:19--> 00:10:34

women who may until a woman but the luta Videla, and there are others who are still awaiting, who are still waiting for their promise to be fulfilled. Meaning it's not that they have changed their mind. No, they're still committed

00:10:35--> 00:10:54

a woman but the loot of the law and they did not alter the terms of their commitment by any alteration. So the true believers are who, when they make a promise with Allah, when they make a commitment, what do they do? They fulfill it. They don't turn away. They don't break their promise.

00:10:55--> 00:11:08

So limita coluna meloetta falloon because this does not suit you. This does not suit a true believer, someone who claims to love Allah, whatever he says to Allah, He will do it.

00:11:09--> 00:11:18

So why is this being said over here that don't be like this? don't have this kind of attitude. Limit Hakuna Matata falloon.

00:11:20--> 00:11:30

Kabbalah Katana in the law, he grid, his hatred in the sight of Allah and kolomela tough alone, that you say what you do not do?

00:11:31--> 00:11:44

Kabbalah it's very great. It's very serious. It's very heavy. It's major, what is major Makaton in anger in aversion, in hatred.

00:11:45--> 00:12:04

What is very great in hatred or in the law in the sight of Allah and the Illuminati of I know that you say that which you do not do. Meaning if you say something that you're going to do it and later on you don't do Who are you upsetting? Who are you making extremely angry with you? Allah soprano.

00:12:06--> 00:12:12

So when you say things and you don't do them, this is greatly loathsome in the sight of Allah.

00:12:13--> 00:12:20

Greatly hated in the sight of Allah. Kabbalah maakten are in the light and the kolomela tough I don't

00:12:21--> 00:12:28

know remember that limit Hakuna Matata Fraggle. anticodon Tacoma Fargo This can take many shapes and forms.

00:12:30--> 00:12:43

First of all, it is that a person says something. He makes a commitment. But then later he does not fulfill it. He says he will do something. He makes a promise. But then he doesn't do it.

00:12:45--> 00:12:49

In sort of Maria I have 54 we learn about his material or his salon.

00:12:51--> 00:13:00

Allah subhanaw taala says about him what korfin kitabi is married in who can Assad can worthy what cannot or Sula nebia

00:13:01--> 00:13:28

is married ealer listen him How was he saw the call word true to his promise. Any promises that he made? He fulfilled them. Allah subhanaw taala praises is my eagerness to know that when he said he will do something he did it. And what's the evidence of that? When his father asked him that what do you say this is a dream that I had? What did he say? Yeah, avati if I'm allowed to do whatever you have been instructed.

00:13:30--> 00:14:14

And it wasn't that at that time, he became very enthusiastic and you know, he had an eemaan rush and he said yes, yes, Father, go ahead, sacrifice me slaughtering me. And when the time to slaughter came, he hid he ran away. No, he was there. Both of them submitted, saw the word. Ibrahim Renison How was he? Allah subhanaw taala tested him with some kalimat for atom Mohan. He completed them he perfected them, meaning everything that Allah subhanaw taala instructed him to do, Ibraheem alehissalaam did it even if it was extremely, extremely difficult and very painful, but he did it. Why? Because Allah had said to him a slim and he had said, a slum to me. So when he said Islam to

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

the Oglala mean, it's a very beautiful statement.

00:14:18--> 00:14:38

However, he fulfilled it. So Lima, Hakuna Matata, falloon What does it mean? First of all, that a person says something makes a commitment says he will do something, but then he doesn't do it. This is something that is greatly hated by Allah. What does Allah like? That when you say you're going to do something, you actually do it?

00:14:39--> 00:14:52

In certain Esra Ayah 34 we learn 104 boulardii in the cannabis oola and fulfill every commitment, indeed the commitment is ever that about which one will be questioned.

00:14:53--> 00:15:00

And remember that commitments they can be of two types. One are those that we make with people and the other

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

Are those that we make with Allah subhanaw taala? Is the.

00:15:05--> 00:15:11

So when it comes to those commitments that we make with people, promises that we make with them, what should we do?

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

We should fulfill them.

00:15:15--> 00:15:19

And when it comes to the promises, the commitments that we make with the deen of Allah,

00:15:20--> 00:15:39

with a loss of panel data, even those What should we do? We should fulfill them. Now give me some examples of promises that we make with people commitments that we make with people. Like, for example, an appointment. If you have to cancel it, cancel it, but don't just not show up. Because when you don't show up, you hurt many people.

00:15:41--> 00:15:52

I went to a clinic recently, and it was said when you miss an appointment, it hurts three people, you that you didn't get to see the doctor. Secondly, the doctor himself Why?

00:15:53--> 00:15:56

Why do you think so? Because it's a waste of their time.

00:15:57--> 00:16:01

And thirdly, another patient who could have taken your time slot.

00:16:02--> 00:16:07

But you took that time it was reserved for you. That's why nobody else could take it.

00:16:09--> 00:16:10

So it hurts three people.

00:16:11--> 00:16:12

What other promises

00:16:13--> 00:16:43

come in commitments that we make with people that we must fulfill. Like, for example, we say to children, I'll give this to you. I'll give that to you. Then when you've said that, you're going to do it, when you said that you're going to give it then give it remember that incident where a woman called her child and she said she will give him something. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked for that if you're going to give it or not something like that. So what is that? How do you show to us? That even with children, whatever promises we make, we must fulfill them.

00:16:44--> 00:16:47

Similarly, what other commitments do we make with people?

00:16:49--> 00:17:03

Like for example, we will help them we will support them, we will come at a certain time and help them out with particular work that they're doing. So any commitment that is made with people, what is our responsibility that we must fulfill it?

00:17:04--> 00:17:08

Now commitments with Allah subhanaw taala with the deen of Allah? What does that include?

00:17:09--> 00:17:19

For example, the five pillars when a person becomes a Muslim, he agrees to do certain things. So Liverpool una vida de Ferran, why do you say that you're a Muslim and you don't be a Muslim?

00:17:20--> 00:17:21

What else

00:17:22--> 00:17:24

anything to do with serving the deen of Allah like

00:17:26--> 00:17:37

that, for example, a person says that they will take a particular course there will be regular they will do the assignments, they will take the tests, they will be regular, they will come on time leave on time,

00:17:38--> 00:17:54

not early, not late. So this is what a commitment and that commitment must also be fulfilled. And if a person does not fulfill that, then this is very hateful in whose sight in the sight of Allah.

00:17:55--> 00:18:14

Yes, other people don't like you fine. Forget about other people. But imagine even a lot does not like it and look at the word mcdon. What is marked hatred, aversion. When you hate what the other is doing, you don't like it at all. You know what else the word mocked has been used for in the Quran.

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

Marrying who

00:18:18--> 00:18:41

the ex wife of the Father marrying her is what maakten it's fashionable to mock them something that Allah hates. So imagine if a person says he will do something and he doesn't do it, he's doing something that is extremely disliked by an extremely disliked what other falls in this commitment with a lot of panel data problems with a lot.

00:18:42--> 00:18:50

Like for example, when a person is in a difficulty, he says Oh Allah, you allow this to happen make this happen and I will do such and such.

00:18:51--> 00:19:07

If only I could become better, if only my health would improve, if only I would find the answer to this question. If only I could get this work done, I will do such and such I will give this masataka I will spend this much time doing such and such.

00:19:08--> 00:19:16

But when it actually happens, then we don't fulfill the promises. So cumbersome often are in the low end dakolo manner.

00:19:18--> 00:19:18

What else?

00:19:20--> 00:19:36

Anything that a person does for the dean, he starts it and then he stops. He starts but then he leaves it halfway. He doesn't complete it. Remember the description of the Sahaba sada qu la de la hora de

00:19:38--> 00:19:47

they were truthful to the promise they made with Allah. That when they said they were going to do something they did it, no matter how difficult it was.

00:19:49--> 00:19:56

What is it that stops us from doing that which we said we will do? difficulties, challenges,

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

but remember that difficulties and challenges

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

are a part of life.

00:20:03--> 00:20:09

Some things they are in your control. Other things are beyond your control.

00:20:10--> 00:20:13

Some things you are able to do,

00:20:14--> 00:20:27

even when life becomes difficult, and other things you're not able to do, because the time that they demand because of the work that is required, you're not able to do. And Allah subhanaw taala knows about the circumstances that you're in.

00:20:28--> 00:20:40

However, you also know what your ability is. Once you've said you're going to do something, once you've made a commitment, then don't leave halfway through completed, fulfill it.

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

Because Lima, tahuna, malata falloon

00:20:45--> 00:20:47

Allah does not like this behavior.

00:20:48--> 00:21:28

You know, sometimes it happens, that a person starts doing something good, and, you know, halfway, he becomes unwell, you become sick, or you get busy somewhere or something happens, I'm guests come over. That doesn't mean you leave everything. You leave everything. And you just attend to that main thing that has come in your life and has become your main focus. No. You know, like, my mother, she always used to tell me when my son was born, because I was still teaching at that time. She said to me that look, eating, drinking, going out. Spending time with a family doesn't continue. When a child is born, doesn't continue. Do you stop eating? Do you stop sleeping?

00:21:29--> 00:21:32

Do you stop going to parties? No.

00:21:33--> 00:21:37

Then why is it that when a child is born, we say I cannot do this work anymore.

00:21:38--> 00:21:48

I cannot study anymore. I cannot teach anymore. I cannot do this anymore. Yes, it becomes difficult. But you can always adjust it in your life.

00:21:49--> 00:22:00

You can always make adjustments, you can always make changes. You have to sacrifice for some time. You have to really take it hard on yourself for some time. But Allah subhanaw taala gives you the ability.

00:22:02--> 00:22:33

Just think about it. Your Life doesn't stop otherwise. So why is it that we make the deen stop in our lives? That's not fair. It's not right. So Lima, taco Luna, bilotta falloon. I see some others who are coming to class. And I don't know how to do it 111 mirrorless, Panasonic and Barak and their time and their energies and their physical strength, that taking one child to the toilet, taking another child to the toilet, taking another child for lunch break, and then running back and forth. And yet they're smiling.

00:22:34--> 00:22:54

smiling. This is a big thing. Because when a person has made a commitment with Allah And remember, this is a commitment with Allah, not with other people, you're doing it for your own benefit. So when you are doing it for your own benefit to gain reward from Allah, then you will fulfill the commitment no matter how difficult it becomes, no matter how challenging it becomes.

00:22:55--> 00:23:05

So limit Hakuna Matata alone, when you've made a commitment with Allah fulfill it, a law does not like it, that you go against your word.

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

Then another way that this happens is that a person advises others he tells others to do good or to not do something bad, but he himself does different things mean he advises other cells others what he himself does not do.

00:23:24--> 00:23:30

Limit aku Luna Why do you instruct marloth alone? What do you don't do yourselves?

00:23:31--> 00:23:46

Because a person must practice what he preaches. If a person is just telling other people or not doing good himself, then this is what hypocrisy. And this is bringing about the Wrath of Allah.

00:23:48--> 00:24:27

In total Baqarah if 44 we learn about the Yahoo attack Motorola, NASA will busy with an Sona and pusaka untung clonal kita falletta clone, you order righteousness of the people you tell people to do good. And you forget yourself while you read the Scripture yourself. It's not that you're ignorant, you know, if a letter cannot and do not reason, we do not use your mind. Sure, Eva and Islam, the prophet of Allah, he said to his people, while conveying the message to them into the today 88 we learn well now what do you do unto halifa comida and her C'mon, who? In Urdu in Islam, and I do not intend to differ from you in that which I have forbidden you?

00:24:28--> 00:24:42

Meaning what I forbid you from? I stay away from that as well. It's not that I'm telling you not to do something, and I'm doing it myself. No one really do unto halifa Camila and Hackman who, in little England Islam,

00:24:43--> 00:24:53

because this is treachery. This is deception. This is wrong, that a person is advising other people. And when it comes to his own actions, they're completely different.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said, a man will be brought on the Day of Resurrection and thrown into the house.

00:25:00--> 00:25:29

Fire so that his intestines will come out. And he will go around like a donkey goes around a millstone, like an animal goes around a millstone, just going round and round in circles. This is how this man will be going around in the hellfire. The people of Hellfire will gather around him surprised? And they will say also, and so what is wrong with you? Didn't you used to order us to do good and forbid us to do bad? You're the one telling us to do good, and you're the one forbidding us from doing evil?

00:25:30--> 00:25:42

And he will reply, yes, I used to order you to do good, but I did not do it myself. And I used to forbid you to doing that. But I used to do it myself.

00:25:43--> 00:25:44

This is reported in body,

00:25:46--> 00:25:48

such as severe punishment,

00:25:49--> 00:26:00

severe punishment, because kerbel or mahkota are in the law, he under kolomela falloon. You're preaching, instructing, but you're not doing it yourself.

00:26:02--> 00:26:14

Allah hates this as well. Then another way that a person could do this contradiction in his words and actions is that a person says he has done something whereas in fact, he has not done it.

00:26:15--> 00:26:23

So Lima, taco Luna, why do you say that you have done such and such, whereas manner the following you have not done it?

00:26:24--> 00:26:44

Why is it that a person would say he has done certain good deeds, or he has accomplished certain things, whereas in reality, he hasn't done anything of that sort. Like, for example, I used to work there, and I have this degree, and I used to live in that country. And I used to make that much money. And I've studied such and such words. In fact, he hasn't done anything like that. Why would a person do that?

00:26:45--> 00:26:49

To impress other people to show off to gain their praise?

00:26:51--> 00:26:58

lying. This is also something that is hated by Allah soprano. This is a sign of what hypocrisy.

00:26:59--> 00:27:08

Instead of either in one eye or 180. We learn about them when I feel clean. When you're a Buddha and you do me if I do.

00:27:09--> 00:27:12

They love to be praised for what they have not done.

00:27:13--> 00:27:30

They haven't actually done it, but they still want to be praised for it. So Allah does not like this behavior either. What Allah likes is truthfulness. What Allah likes is honesty. What Allah likes, is fulfilling the commitment.

00:27:31--> 00:27:55

Not that a person makes promises, but he breaks them. that a person says one thing and he does something else. No. This is a behavior that Allah does not like this loyalty. and trustworthiness is a trait that cannot be found in a believer. Remember that? This is a trait that is found in who in a monastic in a hypocrite.

00:27:57--> 00:28:27

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I told Mona Lisa last, there are three signs for a hypocrite, what are they either what are the left, when he makes a promise he breaks it will either had death caliber when he speaks he lies what either domina Han and when he is interested, he betrays? Because in all of these things, limit Hakuna Matata alone. He makes a promise, he says he will do it, but then he breaks it.

00:28:28--> 00:28:37

Then when he speaks, he lies. He says he has done something whereas in reality, he hasn't done it. When he's given an Amana he said yes, he will take care of it. But then he doesn't take care of it.

00:28:39--> 00:28:40

Lima taco Luna malata are known.

00:28:42--> 00:28:51

In another Hadees, we learned there are three signs of a hypocrite, even if he observed fast and prayed and asserted that he was a Muslim.

00:28:52--> 00:28:59

These three signs same signs, but in their head is additional that were insomma was was an

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

even if that person prays Salah he fasts in the month of Ramadan, and he thinks that he is a Muslim. But in fact Who is he will not feel

00:29:11--> 00:29:13

that limit hold'em alone.

00:29:15--> 00:29:26

If you think about it, if there is a discrepancy in the words and actions of a person, they're not coherent, or a person breaks his promises, does not fulfill the commitments then what's the harm?

00:29:28--> 00:29:29

What's the harm? What's the loss?

00:29:31--> 00:29:33

There is no loss. Okay, there's no loss don't do it.

00:29:34--> 00:29:35

What's the loss?

00:29:36--> 00:29:52

It affects other people. How, in many ways that first of all, it promotes the culture of lying. It promotes the culture of breaking promises. It promotes the culture of not fulfilling commitments,

00:29:53--> 00:29:54

doesn't it?

00:29:56--> 00:30:00

Tell me for example, if I say that, no, I'm not going to

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

continue teaching the course for example,

00:30:03--> 00:30:06

are you going to continue completing the course? Probably not.

00:30:07--> 00:30:14

If one person says I'm not going to come, doesn't it give confidence to other people as well, that they should not show up either.

00:30:15--> 00:30:20

And if one person fulfills his commitment, then other people are also encouraged.

00:30:21--> 00:30:31

So, the harm is that it affects other people. It promotes the culture of lying. It promotes the culture of breaking promises, not fulfilling your commitments.

00:30:33--> 00:31:00

The second point of limit of Coronavirus, a felon that a person preaches what he does not practice himself. So for example, a person is telling other people about something good, or stopping them from bad. But he recognizes that he doesn't do it fully himself that his actions are different. And he recognizes that he accepts that. But still he is advising other people, like for example, a father, delta son don't smoke. But he realizes that he smokes himself.

00:31:02--> 00:31:04

But he knows that smoking is bad, it's wrong.

00:31:06--> 00:31:10

But does he have the right to tell his son or not? What's the answer?

00:31:12--> 00:31:18

Yes, but he must also strive to stop himself.

00:31:20--> 00:31:25

Because until he does not stop himself, his advice is not going to have any effect.

00:31:27--> 00:31:50

I heard somewhere, I don't remember which scholar exactly it was that he said, whenever I find a weakness in me, I start preaching about that, I start teaching about that. Because when I start teaching about that, then what happens? It opens up my eyes, it tells me that this is wrong. And I hate that wrong action even more, or I like that good action even more. And as a result, it becomes a part of me.

00:31:51--> 00:32:03

So sometimes it helps you. Because remember, no person is perfect. You tell other people, for example, backbiting was wrong. And then you are sitting with someone and you realize I just did that.

00:32:04--> 00:32:08

You're telling children don't lie, you're telling children don't behave like this Be gentle.

00:32:09--> 00:32:11

And then what happens your children remind you Be gentle.

00:32:13--> 00:32:21

No person is perfect. However, a person should always have this understanding that I need to improve.

00:32:22--> 00:32:29

And he should have that sincerity that is lost. And he should try his best to do good to stay away from wrong.

00:32:31--> 00:32:47

Now, going back to the loss of the harm of contradiction between word and action, first is that people get affected how that you're promoting the culture of contradiction in word and action. Another effect is that other people suffer.

00:32:48--> 00:32:54

Other people suffer, you make a promise with someone, you don't fulfill it, you think they're not going to suffer anything.

00:32:55--> 00:32:56

Of course, they will.

00:32:57--> 00:33:12

Similarly, for example, if there is a store and it says open from nine to five, you go there at 9055 minutes past nine o'clock, it's still closed, is it going to harm you, of course, it's taking away from your time.

00:33:14--> 00:33:17

And like this person also loses the trust of others.

00:33:18--> 00:33:24

You break a commitment once you break a promise and other time, the third time, people are not going to trust you.

00:33:25--> 00:33:49

If you go to a store, it says we'll be open at nine, and it's 10 minutes past nine, half an hour past night, you're waiting one day it's closed, it opens up an hour late another day, again, the same thing happens, you're not going to go there again, you're not going to recommend that place to anyone else. So this is the harm that a person becomes untrustworthy, unreliable in the sight of people.

00:33:50--> 00:33:54

But the worst is that a person earns a loss.

00:33:56--> 00:34:18

Because Allah says Kabuto maakten are in the light and the cooloola Allah, Allah hates it, it's greatly disliked by him, that you say that which you do not do. If a person, you know makes a commitment, and he does not fulfill it, he starts something, but he does not complete it, then what message is giving out to other people that this work is not really that important.

00:34:19--> 00:34:25

It's not really that important. It's okay. There are other things that are more important other things that are more necessary.

00:34:26--> 00:34:39

So remember, whenever you start a good action, whenever you start a good deed, this is like a commitment that you're making with who with your Lord. And once you've made that commitment, then fulfill it, fulfill it.

00:34:41--> 00:34:59

Remember, in sort of the news, we learned about older women, that when they have reached a particular age of being aware, it's okay for them that they remove their outer garments, meaning their job, they can take it off, because it's difficult for them inconvenient for them. But if they keep it on

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

It's better for them. Why? Because once you've started a good deed, then you should continue with it for the rest of your life.

00:35:08--> 00:35:14

Because what kind of actions is a lot like those actions which are consistent even if they're small.

00:35:15--> 00:35:24

So consistency is that which Allah likes to see in us, not inconsistency. No matter what kind of inconsistency it may be.

00:35:25--> 00:35:30

And this is something that we should be careful about in matters of Deen as well as matters of dunya.

00:35:31--> 00:35:57

We see that this leads to disunity. This leads to mistrust that if a person is not fulfilling his promise, can you trust them? No. If a person says he will do something, but they don't fulfill their commitment, can you work with them? No, you cannot work with them. So the key to unity. The key to being strong is what? fulfilling your commitments being true to your promises.

00:35:58--> 00:36:02

Kabbalah maakten are in the law he and Taku meloetta alone.

00:36:04--> 00:36:55

In the law, your hibel, Edina ukata Luna v. Sebelius of Ghana home banana morsels. Allah loves those people who fight in his cause in a row, as if they are a single structure joined firmly. First, Allah tells us about what he does not like then he tells us about what he likes, what is it that he likes? Who is it that he likes, and Medina ukata Luna feasibilities of those who fight in his way in rows, making straight rows with discipline organization, the unknown banana Marceau's as if they are a single structure that is joined firmly bananas structure building and muscles that which is solidified that which is pressed together.

00:36:56--> 00:37:16

Most sources from the root factors that are sought sought and Russ is to construct to build a structure that is very solid, very firm in itself. And then on top, you pour some kind of material in order to solidify it so that no gaps no rift remain inside.

00:37:17--> 00:37:30

Remember the wall the Joker name build? What did he say to nice overall? How did he fill the gap with the pieces of iron? And then he said, Carlin for who blow the bellows and then hopefully of Allah He.

00:37:31--> 00:37:40

Then he poured on top molten copper. Why? Because when that is poured on top and any gaps, any rifts whatever, they're completely sealed together.

00:37:41--> 00:37:52

So then the structure the wall, it becomes firmly compacted together, there are no cracks, no breaks in the middle. And then it's also firm in its place that you can't move it.

00:37:54--> 00:38:13

So banana muscles gives us two meanings. First of all, a solid structure in which there are no gaps, no cracks, no weaknesses inside, meaning united. And secondly, a structure that is firm in its place. A structure that does not move. Why? Because its parts are cemented with one another.

00:38:15--> 00:38:20

So these are the kind of believers that Allah likes those who are together.

00:38:21--> 00:38:33

Those who are not disunited, from inside, no, they are together. And then they are firm. Because banana motto says what a structure that is firm in its place, you can't move it.

00:38:34--> 00:38:39

So once they've made a commitment, once they've started something, they're not going to stop until they finish it.

00:38:41--> 00:38:57

So who does Allah like? two characteristics are mentioned over here. First of all, United from within. And secondly, fully committed, fully committed. This is what Allah likes the unknown banana morsels. You see, one is just a crowd of people.

00:38:58--> 00:39:27

And another is an organized group, a crowd of people? How do they look? messy, unimpressive. This organized? And on the other hand, an organized group of people who are enrolled in files, each person at his place, each person doing his work? How do they look? Very impressive. How is their work? Very good. There's quality in their work. Their work is also very productive. Because you're not disorganized.

00:39:29--> 00:39:47

When people are praying together in straight rows than what happens there is more crucial. Otherwise, you're constantly thinking this sister please move your foot here. Please stand closer to me. You cannot have assure them. So what is it that enables you to work properly focused?

00:39:48--> 00:39:52

It's unity. It's standing together. This is what Allah likes.

00:39:53--> 00:39:54

will listen to the recitation

00:40:50--> 00:41:08

You see if a wall is cracked, can you put something on it? Can you put a ceiling on it? Can you put a roof on it? No, only when a wall is firm and strong plaster together, consolidate it, then you can put something on top of it, then it can serve as a foundation.

00:41:09--> 00:41:39

So, similarly, only when believers are united, then can they carry a heavy responsibility, then can they accomplish something, but if they're cracked from everywhere, if they're broken apart from everywhere, then will they be able to do anything, they will not be able to do anything at all. So, over here last pantalla tells us that what he likes in believers is unity and steadfastness because these are two things that lead to success, unity, and steadfastness

00:41:41--> 00:41:44

and unity means discipline, organization.

00:41:45--> 00:41:51

And we see that this quality, there's a hover of the land whom they had organization, unity

00:41:52--> 00:42:14

and unity for its sake, sometimes you have to sacrifice a lot. Like for example, in order to make a straight line, do you have to stand and comfortably sometimes? Do you have to Yes, you do. In order to make straight lines anywhere? You have to sacrifice but if you say no, no, I'm too comfortable in my spot. Why should I move she should move.

00:42:15--> 00:42:31

I'm not going to move she should move, then that's not going to lead to unity. So sometimes for the sake of unity, what do you have to do? sacrifice? You have to give up your ego receive that the Sahaba when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sent them for the Battle of Buddha in the eighth year of

00:42:32--> 00:43:13

the Battle of Buddha, he appointed three leaders zaytoven Hadassah, REL de la Horne, who? Jaffa road, Allahu anhu. And then thirdly, are the labor law. And what did he say? That observed the skill then, therefore becomes a leader, if he is skill, then of the level of aha should become the leader. And we learned the Jaffa leader who initially said, I'm not going to accept that as a leader above me. Why they do that and who was younger, he was much older. And remember that he had come from in every senior he was a leader. Remember, Java learned who he was the leader of the Muslims and every senior he spoke for them. Now imagine he had to accept somebody else's leadership initially said no.

00:43:14--> 00:43:29

But the Prophet sallallahu Sallam advised him and he accepted. He accepted and he went, and in the battle, he was martyred. Now imagine if he said, No, I'm not going. You don't make me the big leader? I'm not going if he didn't go, would he be rewarded with martyrdom at that time? No.

00:43:30--> 00:43:58

So what do we see that sometimes for the sake of unity, for the sake of greater good, you have to give up your ego as well. You have to sacrifice, you have to move, you have to provide space to the other. You have to do that, which is more difficult. But if a person remembers this is what Allah likes, then it becomes easy. Because in the law, you're hibel ladina ukata una feasability. Soften an hombre Nana muscles.

00:43:59--> 00:44:33

Sometimes we underestimate ourselves, we don't realize the potential that we have. And we get stuck because of these little things. Oh, why is she here? And why are they here? But remember, for the sake of unity, just give up your ego, for the sake of unity, do what you're supposed to do. Because sometimes when we're working together in an organization, it's quite possible a decision is made, and we don't like it. We find it hard. But for the sake of staying together for the sake of statelessness for the sake of doing the work accepted, and there's heightened that in Shall

00:44:35--> 00:44:36

we listen to the recitation again.

00:44:38--> 00:44:39

This mill

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

said

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

00:44:48--> 00:44:49

00:44:56--> 00:44:57

Hello
