In the Levina indeed those people who yelled Boonah they lower a sweater home their voices yo Luna Lane bla bla bla bla, which is to lower one's voice or lower one's eyes. Remember Godbole buzzer might look good forget that little buzzer to lower the gaze, lowering the gaze. So in the Ludhiana yo buena swatter home as well as plural of salt. Those people who lower their voices are in the Rasul Allah, near the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah says Hola, Erica. It is those people who are Levina are the ones who in the Han Allahu Allah has tested Paluma home their hearts lit Taqwa for the core.

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

Those people who show respect.

00:00:53 --> 00:01:28

Allah says that Allah has tested their hearts for Taqwa What does into Hana mean into Hana mean? How noon is to put something to test in order to know its true ability. Basically, the word is used for stretching a piece of leather, why would you stretch it to see how far it can go? How much you can stretch, how much you can expend, how much area will it cover? Right, this is the purpose to know the true ability and potential of something. So into Hana. Allah has tested their hearts.

00:01:29 --> 00:01:53

And so through the test, he has purified their hearts and he has found the Aqua in their hearts. So in the Hannah he tested he examined and what did he find in their hearts? The Aqua. In other words, those who show respect, they respect is proof of Taqwa in their hearts.

00:01:54 --> 00:01:56

Because where's the Aqua? A Taqwa?

00:01:57 --> 00:02:05

A Taqwa? Hoonah. It is here in the heart. Now how do you know turquoise in the heart? How do you know?

00:02:06 --> 00:02:34

What does Allah say? The proof of Taqwa in the heart is a hug the salt, lowering the voice in the presence of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The person who respects the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then it shows that that person has taqwa in their heart. And the one who does not show respect to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Then their disrespect is proof of what of lack of Taqwa

00:02:35 --> 00:03:02

we all claim to have Taqwa. We all wish to have taqwa, how to check how to measure how to measure whether or not we have the quality in our hearts. How, how do you do that? What's the proof of that? Check your behavior. Check your conduct, check your manners. It is our manners. It is our dealings with others that show what is really in our hearts.

00:03:03 --> 00:03:11

And this is not rocket science. I mean, if you have disgust for somebody in your heart, what's going to happen that Disgust is going to be visible the moment they come in front of you.

00:03:13 --> 00:03:36

If you have love for somebody, in your heart that love is going to be obvious the moment that person has mentioned isn't the happiness, the expressions on our faces, our body language, it shows what is really in the heart. Now we all claim to have Taqwa. But what is the proof of Taqwa it is our actions. It is our dealings, it is our conduct.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:56

What does this ayah show to us that there will be tests of our character. And the passing of tests is in our actions. Actions, demonstrate the state of our heart actions demonstrate Amen. And the lack of proper action demonstrates the lack of iman.

00:03:57 --> 00:04:13

So if you want to see where your Eman is, what the state of your heart is, how much you really fear God, check your external. Because sometimes we dismiss the external action saying, All that matters is the state of the heart. You know, I'm cleaning my heart, my heart is very clean. Really.

00:04:15 --> 00:04:19

That's why you're angry the moment you see that person, because your heart is very pure and clean.

00:04:20 --> 00:04:21

We lie to ourselves a lot.

00:04:22 --> 00:04:33

So much we deceive ourselves. We're so dishonest with ourselves. We claim to have purity in our hearts. We don't have that purity.

00:04:34 --> 00:04:59

Allah says in the Lavina, Yahoo buena sweater home, those who lower their voices in the presence of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? Yes, it is those who have Taqwa in their hearts. Their lowering of the voice is proof that their hearts have Taqwa. Lahoma Farah tournois Edgerunner. Aleem For them is forgiveness and a great reward

00:05:00 --> 00:05:43

These verses again and again, what are they emphasizing, respecting Allah and His messenger? Isn't it? And by extension, what does that teach us? That we must show respect to those who deserve it. But sometimes what happens is that in the name of frankness in the name of friendship, we forget appropriate etiquette, we forget appropriate other, remember that other is a major part of our religion. Abu Bakar will deliver on who our own little dilemma are and who had a small argument in the presence of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam voices were raised. And so these verses were revealed.

00:05:44 --> 00:05:53

If this is the case with raising one's voice, what do you think about preferring one's own opinion over the Command of Allah and His messenger?

00:05:54 --> 00:06:13

If we're not allowed to raise our voices in the presence of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam be loud in front of him, then how on earth can we prefer our own opinion over his command? You understand? That's not acceptable either. Remember, respect is outward and inward.

00:06:14 --> 00:06:24

It is outward, it is displayed through one speech through one's manner, and it is also inward, and we cannot fake it unless and until it is in the heart.

00:06:25 --> 00:06:46

If there is other than the heart, if there is love and reverence in the heart, then it will naturally translate into our actions into our body language. And if that love and reverence and respect is void is not there in the heart, then we cannot pretend we cannot fake it. Maybe we can for a few moments, but very soon, it will go away.

00:06:48 --> 00:07:06

In total hedge i A 37 Allah says layan Allah Allah Muhammad, wala Dima Guha, Wallachian en Allahu TacoMan. Come, what reaches Allah is your taqwa. What Allah likes to see is your taqwa. How God conscious are you in your dealings with others?

00:07:07 --> 00:07:38

So respect Allah, respect his messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and by extension, respect those who deserve to be respected? And who are they, those who are greater in terms of status, in terms of knowledge, in terms of their age, right, in terms of their position in terms of their relationship. However, Allah subhanaw taala has given a person preference over us in any way, then that means we have to accept it.

00:07:39 --> 00:07:47

And then we have to show the appropriate respect. And if we don't accept it, we don't show that appropriate respect. Who are we harming ourselves?

00:07:48 --> 00:08:30

And one of the things that's being highlighted over here is watching our voice our volume, more than the words even the volume, because your whole buena ASWAT the home, right? Jack? how loud you are, how soft you are, in the way that you deal with people. When it comes to parents. What does Allah say? Let the Kula Houma often don't even say off to them show respect. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that in them in Edge, Lelli Lehi, that part of glorifying Allah, Bart of glorifying Allah is a Kdrama this Shava till Muslim he

00:08:31 --> 00:08:36

is showing honor to a white haired Muslim,

00:08:37 --> 00:08:39

who is the white haired Muslim,

00:08:40 --> 00:08:48

an old person, an aged man or woman who is a Muslim, if you want to show respect to Allah,

00:08:49 --> 00:09:11

and we all want to right, we all claim to love and respect Allah. Bart, of showing respect to Allah is showing respect to his aged servants, those who have lived lives of 6070 8090 years and in that life, they've been praying salah, that's a big deal. They've been giving there is a cat.

00:09:12 --> 00:09:24

They have been making dua to Allah, even if they're not super righteous, they've been doing the bare minimum that is sufficient for us to respect them. They believe in Allah, it's enough for us to respect them to show respect to them.

00:09:26 --> 00:09:43

It Kurama this shea butter Muslim will Hamad Al Quran and also showing respect to the carrier of the Quran. And also the Hadith continues. What a Gramma does sulphonyl mocks it and also showing honor to adjust ruler.

00:09:44 --> 00:10:00

So if we claim to have other to have respect for Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, let us see how we deal with these people, the elderly, the person who's memorized the Quran carrier

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

The Quran and also adjust ruler, we see that the Sahaba they understood this so well.

00:10:08 --> 00:10:22

You see when you have love for your parents, okay, then you love them and you also love their friends. Right. And this is why part of Biddle validation is to also be good to their friends.

00:10:23 --> 00:10:32

All right, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved her the journal de la Mancha. And even after Khadija de la Marne have passed away, what would he do?

00:10:33 --> 00:10:53

On her her friends, right? So what did the Sahaba do? Was Sahaba we learned that Abu Bakr Al Dulo aren't who, after the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had passed away. And we've got over the long run, who said to her model deliver and who let us go and visit ohm Amon, who was on Amon.

00:10:54 --> 00:11:35

She was the lady who took care of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he was an orphan, right? She was basically the slave off the prophets Allah license father, right. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam technically inherited her because that is what happens to slaves. They're supposed to be inherited. However the prophets on the law said I'm set her free. All right, anyway, oh my Amen. She did Hijra she embraced Islam and she was a woman wound the Prophet sallallahu Sallam greatly respected and Abu Bakr said to Roman, let us go and visit OMO. Amen, just as we used to visit her with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that he has now he's no longer here. But if he

00:11:35 --> 00:11:48

were alive, he would have gone to visit him Amen. So now let's go visit him Amen. So Abu Bakr an aroma both went to visit OMO Amon today what would happen oh, non Muharram haram, don't even talk to her don't even acknowledge your existence.

00:11:49 --> 00:11:54

They the two men are going to visit a lady.

00:11:55 --> 00:12:35

Why? Because the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam used to visit her. He had respect for her. She took care of him. She loved him and he loved her. The Prophet saw a lot of time is gone. But because they loved Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they loved OMA Amon, they went to visit her. And when they went to visit her, after some time, she started crying. They asked her that Why are you crying? And she said that I'm not crying because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam has passed away because what Allah has given him now is better than what he was in before meaning, we'll ask Allah to hydro Lukka Meenal Hola. He's in a better state. I'm not crying because of that. I'm crying

00:12:35 --> 00:12:44

because what he has now seized, no more revelation is going to come and upon this Abubaker terminal, the long run who both began crying,

00:12:45 --> 00:12:53

why did they go? This was respecting them. Amen. Why out of respect for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:12:55 --> 00:12:59

So respect those who deserve to be respected, and who are they?

00:13:00 --> 00:13:35

Who are they? Those whom Allah has given some preference to over us in any way, whether it is through in age, relationship, whatever it may be. Another thing we see in these verses is the prohibition of being loud. Right? Of course, there are situations in which being loud is necessary. Like if a person is giving a than he's not going to say, Well, I have to be soft. No, he has to raise his voice. A person is giving hope, but it's a very important matter. He's raising his voice to show how important the subject is, that is appropriate.

00:13:37 --> 00:14:12

But raising voice raising one's voice all the time, we're unnecessarily in situations that where it is not appropriate. This is something that contradicts noble character, we see that I shall deliver and she said, I never saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam laughing to an extent that one could see his palate, but he always used to smile, meaning he never laughed so loudly that his whole mouth is open and you could see his back teeth and you could see his, you know, the back of his mouth. No, he wasn't even loud in his laughter.

00:14:13 --> 00:14:59

Then we see that one of the qualities of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that is mentioned in the thorough is that he does not shout nor scream in the marketplace. It is said untag de wala SULI Some may to call mute our kin laser before when whenever leighlin Well as a hobby and Bill as work. You're neither hard hearted nor a fierce character, nor one who shouts in the markets. He was someone who spoke softly. We see that when these verses were revealed the Sahaba took this so seriously. Abu Bakr of the low iron who he said that I will only speak to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a friend who whispers a secret with his friend

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

meaning only he will be able to hear me when I'm standing next to him

00:15:05 --> 00:15:50

are one of the Allahu Anhu his voice was so low after this, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have to ask him to repeat what he had said, in order to understand what Arman had said. We see another companion phablet even case when he heard this verse, he was so afraid. He went home, and he told his wife, lock the door, meaning lock me up, imprison me in this house because basically, I am done an evil matter has happened and I am ruined. Allah has said, and Tabitha are Malou coma and two letter Sharon and that is what has happened to me. Because savate radula Mourinho he was naturally a very loud person. His voice was just loud. That's just how it was. So he was

00:15:50 --> 00:16:18

afraid. So in the profits on a lot of sudden realized that the Sabbath had not been coming to the masjid, he enquired about him. And he was told that this is what has happened in Sabbath thinks that he is of the people of *. And the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, go back to him and tell him that he is not from the people of the fire. Rather, he is from the people of Jana. Because his voice was loud, not out of disrespect. You understand? It was loud because it was just naturally loud.

00:16:20 --> 00:17:04

Then what is it that matters more than our external behavior? What is it that matters the state of our heart? That matters a lot, but that doesn't mean that we ignore the external part. We watch that also we're careful about that. But what is most essential is that we correct the state of our hearts. Allah says in Alladhina Indeed, those people who you know do NACA, they call you minhwa Electro Juillet. From behind the Chambers from behind the houses are Thuram layer cologne, most of them don't use reason. You know, Dona Canada, Nadal to call out to someone loudly. All right. Meanwhile, hula hula is applauded of the word Hydra. And what is her draw her draw from Hydra? Hydra

00:17:04 --> 00:17:15

is rock or stone. And headlight is basically a piece of land that is your job to Alaihe meaning on which a wall is made. So basically, it's walled.

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

All right. So bricks are laid, or rocks are placed one layer over another. Why, in order to in order to make walls. So Hijra is a room and apartment. It's not a mansion. It's not a big house. It's not a fancy villa. What is it? It's just a piece of land on which walls are made for the purpose of privacy. All right, this is Hydra. And what does the hydrologic refer to the rooms of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam each wife of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had her own Hydra.

00:17:55 --> 00:18:10

All right, we learned that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam so July heard a lot of his wife they were right next to the masjid. All right, they were right next to the masjid. And there is a companion hadith of Ibn Norman while the Allahu Anhu.

00:18:11 --> 00:18:16

And he basically owned the property that was right next to the masjid.

00:18:17 --> 00:18:59

All right. So of course, when you have the property right next to the masjid, where do you think you're going to live? Right next to the masjid. So basically, he was a neighbor of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam All right. However, an Allah had blessed him with a lot of wealth. In the books here are lamb and rubella. It is mentioned that every time the Prophet sallallahu Sallam married a new wife, what would happen is that, how does the byndoor man he would give his house to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and move next door and this happened not just once but many times. All right. So each Hydra was basically gifted by who? How did the IB Norman radula horn

00:19:01 --> 00:19:32

All right. And it is said that he would quietly take care of the profits on Alana salams needs he wouldn't even tell anybody about just very quietly and so many times has happened that he offered his house the small house the small piece of land, all right, the small room that the Prophet sallallahu sallam said and this has mentioned in Syria or Lama novella that look at this the Haytham in Hadith min Maya to how well you Lana and Munna Zilla he, I am embarrassed of how to so many times he's moved, he's relocated because of me.

00:19:33 --> 00:20:00

So these who do lots, well that were right next to the masjid. All right, and each 100 I belong to a wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah says those people who call you from outside of the 100 are most of them don't use reason. What is this referring to? Remember year of delegations earlier what had happened? The bunu, Tamim Their leader was to be appointed. A small argument broke out between Abu Bakr and

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

Irma, now again, something happened because I've been with me, all right, but not the mean people. When they arrived in Medina, their leader or club inhabits, he was looking for the Prophet salallahu Salam. So naturally he went to the Mercy they didn't find him. It was a time of afternoon nap. So he realized the Prophet sallallahu Sallam must be in one of his houses now, which houses it? He didn't know. So he said, You know what? Let me go and call him. So he stood outside the Hydra. And he started calling out. Yeah, Muhammad. Oh, Hello, Dr. Lena.

00:20:31 --> 00:21:10

Oh, Muhammad, come out. We're here. We're here, come out. And he started calling out. Can you imagine everybody's supposed to be resting at that time? So not only was his address very disrespectful, he was disturbing. Everybody sleep. All right. And you can imagine, very irritating, right? You're sleeping and somebody's calling you in such a rude manner and so loudly you'd naturally get offended, isn't it? Allah conferences messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, people who do this, a Federal Home layer keynote. Most of them don't even use reason. Because this tribe was a Bedouin tribe. So Allah subhanaw taala. Comfort as a messenger don't get too bothered by their

00:21:10 --> 00:21:36

behavior. It's just that they don't get it. They don't understand. If you think about it, but no Tamim. Their leader is getting it very easy here. Look at what happened to Abubaker intermodal de la Marne, who there is their voices. And Allah subhanaw taala got upset and he revealed these verses and warned them threaten them your deeds could be wasted. And here is Accra. He's calling the prophets on a lot of time in such a disrespectful way. And Allah says Take it easy.

00:21:38 --> 00:22:02

Why? Because what Abu Bakr and Omar knew this man did not know what was expected of Abu Bakr and aroma. Yes, it was not expected from this man will know under whom Cebu Allah says and if they had been patient had that Raja la him until you came out to them. Meaning instead of calling you these people should have waited outside for you to come out on your own.

00:22:04 --> 00:22:12

Locanda heilala home surely that would have been better for them. Well, Allahu wa foto Rahim and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. He's letting this go.

00:22:13 --> 00:22:20

Why? Because these people did not know any better. But those who know people like Abu Bakr and Omar,

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

those people who know then more is expected of them.

00:22:27 --> 00:22:33

What do we learn from these verses? That part of Islamic other is to address others respectfully.

00:22:35 --> 00:22:40

These people shouted out, so we must not shout in order to get someone's attention.

00:22:42 --> 00:23:08

Remember, loudness and speech is compared to the brink of a donkey, isn't it? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the Mothman is not Baran, Lauren, fat hush Alberdi. The believer is not obscene in his language. And part of being obscene in one's language is being too loud, shouting. Another thing we see over here is that it is not appropriate to visit others at a time when they're occupied with something else.

00:23:09 --> 00:23:11

You see the prophets Allah Islam was resting.

00:23:12 --> 00:23:57

It was a time of a lulu. It's understood, though everybody rests at that time. All right. So at a time like this, going outside his house, and then calling out to him so loudly, insisting that he should come out. This is not respectful. We have to respect other people's schedules, their times of privacy, the work that they're engaged in, and not insist that they suit our schedule. Rather, if we want something from someone, then we have to adjust our schedule, isn't it? Sometimes what happens is that we go somewhere and we want to speak to somebody and we insist that they speak to us right now, at this time. We want somebody to come for a talk for a lecture, we insist that they come only

00:23:57 --> 00:24:23

at that time, we don't care about what's happening in your life, you have an exam, you have work, you have family obligations, I don't care, I want you here at this time. This is not appropriate. We have to respect other people's time, especially people who are in a position of authority or people who are serving the public, respect their time, respect their schedule, and not insist every time that they suit our schedules. Rather, we have to adjust our schedule in order to accommodate them.

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


00:24:26 --> 00:24:59

And then, of course, over here, Allah says lecan heilala home if they had waited, that would have been better and we see this in the Companions, younger companions on the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed away these companions, the younger ones, they would go out to the older companions in order to learn from them. So we see for example, Abdullah even our best for the Allahu Anhu. He was a relative of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wasn't he? If he would have a question, if you wanted to ask a companion and older companion about something, he wouldn't even go and knock on his door. What would he do?

00:25:00 --> 00:25:02

He would go to his door and sit outside,

00:25:03 --> 00:25:04

sit outside,

00:25:05 --> 00:25:10

thinking that when he will come out, I will ask him the question.

00:25:11 --> 00:25:16

Even if that meant he had to wait for an hour, two hours, three hours, maybe the whole day.

00:25:17 --> 00:25:22

Allah Harlem, he didn't even go and knock, he just waited outside.

00:25:23 --> 00:26:05

Because the seeker must be patient, if something really matters to us, then we must be patient, we must patiently take it. And we must not insist that other people give it to us. We think about it. In university, when you have a question to ask your professor, can you just go at any time and ask the professor? What do you do? Are there certain times that that are scheduled for you to come and ask your questions? There, all right. And if you go before that, or after that, will that be accommodated? Can you say that No, I am miss important. So you have to cater to me? No, you can't do that. Who's more important here whose time has to be respected? The Giver. And that's the professor

00:26:05 --> 00:26:16

you are the seeker. So again, and again in these verses, what is being emphasized, realize that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is here, and you were here.

00:26:17 --> 00:27:11

His position is greater than yours, accept it, acknowledge it, and deal with him appropriately. And the following verses another very important command is being given. Yeah, uh, you have Medina ama No, all you who have believed, injure ACOEM if he came to you, meaning if someone were to come to you, and this someone this person happens to be a faster con, is sinful, a disobedient person. FASEB is a person who commits fists, and what is Fiske to basically cross the limits. When you think of the word FISC. Think of an overripe fruit, an overripe date, especially, or a seed, what happens to it, when it sprouts or when it becomes overripe, then it comes out of its skin, right, the skin kind

00:27:11 --> 00:28:02

of bursts, and the flesh it comes out. This is for soccer to come out of the limit the cover that has been set. So in general confessor cone, if fasciae comes to you, meaning a person who is known for committing certain sins. So in other words, they don't really have a good reputation. The fact is, that no person is free of sin, isn't it? Who can claim to be perfect? No one can. In fact, the person who's claiming to be perfect free of sin is right there committing the sin because Allah says led to the coup and full circle. So he's disobeying Allah right there. So the fact is that no person is free of sin. However, within a community people have their reputations, right? Someone is a

00:28:02 --> 00:28:47

credible source, they're known for their honesty, they're known for their commitment. And there is another person who is known to have lied once or twice before. There is another person who was known to not have been truthful to their promises or their commitments. So if a facile comes to you meeting a person who doesn't really have a good reputation, they are untrustworthy, they are not reliable. And they bring you be never in they come to you with some news number, what is another important relevant major news or information that directly affects you? So they bring you a piece of information that is relevant to you, which means that you must take action, you must believe in it

00:28:47 --> 00:29:14

or you must take action, but should you accept it and should you take action immediately? No, you shouldn't. Before you take action, what should you do? First have a yes or no. Then investigate the yellow from taba Yun, who is to seek clarity to investigate to research in order to seek clarity so ascertain meaning find out and verify whether this news that was given to you was even true.

00:29:15 --> 00:30:00

But uh, ya know, why should you clarify why should you investigate? Why should you research? Because if you take action, and let's say that information was false, then will you have regrets later on? Of course you will. And to Cebu lest you harm you reach to Cebu is Saba is to reach and over here it means you strike or you hit or you harm a woman or people be Johanna 10 out of ignorance. Because this person came and told you that this group of people were doing something against you. You accepted His word and you took action against those people. And what happened? You hurt them out of what out of ignorance. They weren't doing anything wrong.

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

wrong to you. This was misinformation and you acted on that misinformation, and you harmed another people out of ignorance. But because of this what would happen for those of you who then you would become Allah upon my foul tone you did nadie mean regretful plural of the word Nadeem one who is regretful meaning you would feel horrible afterwards, you would have so much regret. Isn't that something that we've experienced in our lives?

00:30:30 --> 00:31:10

That somebody came and gave us some information, we misunderstood it, or they gave us false information. We got extremely emotional and angry, and we took action and later on, we found out that it wasn't even true. So who's sitting embarrassed at the end? We are. So save yourself the embarrassment and save yourself the regret or you believe and investigate before you take any action. Now there is a particular background to this verse, meaning why this verse was revealed. There is an incident that is reported in was not the Hamid and Shahabad. He mentions it in his book as synthetical. So he has basically I'm going to summarize the incident over here that there was a

00:31:10 --> 00:31:52

particular tribe in Arabia blue Masonic, alright, and they had embraced Islam. And remember that when a person accepts Islam, then they must give zakat also, right. So there was a time that was decided, in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would send an emissary a person, do the minimal startup in order to collect there's a cap and distributed amongst their four. All right, so what happened the button was started they were expecting the profits on the line and so lumps and misery and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sent a man by the name of Walid bin Akbar. All right, now we're leaving Iraq, but he was on his way to the bundle masala. And this whole process, it got a bit

00:31:52 --> 00:32:35

delayed. So the chief have been mustered up he got worried that why isn't the messenger of the prophets of Allah said I'm coming, what's happening? What's going on? So he was afraid that maybe the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was upset with us, maybe something happened. So he sent a group of his people to Medina to find out what was happening. So remember that in Arabia, when you travel, you travel with what? With weapons, especially? I mean, at that time, all right. So when you traveled, you had to take weapons with you because it wasn't safe. So this group of people that left from bateau musta luck was on their way to Medina, was armed with weapons. All right. Now this man

00:32:35 --> 00:33:14

will even rock but as he's approaching, what does he see, he sees a group of Bonamassa luck approaching, armed with weapons. So he got scared. He thought there's something wrong over here. And he ran back to Medina. And he told the prophet Sallallahu wasallam that I think these people have left Islam and they are coming to attack us they were going to kill me. So I came back. Now what happened? As the prophets Allah, Allah Islam is discussing the problem with the companions. According to some reports, the Prophet said, a lot of them sent a group of companions to find out to investigate. And according to some other reports, we learned that this group have been mustered up,

00:33:14 --> 00:33:59

finally reached Medina. And they're saying what's going on? And then the prophets of Allah Assam confronted them and ask them that you were coming to fight my mystery what was happening? They said, No, we never saw him. We were waiting. In fact, we were waiting for so long we were coming to look for him. Now, imagine what had happened. If the Prophet salallahu Salam immediately took action and sent a group of his armed companions to go and fight the animal stuck? Who would they be fighting against? Who? Muslims their own people? Isn't it? And wouldn't this lead to a lot of regret later on? A lot. So this is teaches us a very important lesson. That before taking action, investigate,

00:33:59 --> 00:34:46

find out do not act on impulse. Before taking action on a report that has been given to you do your own research, double check, investigate, especially when that action is serious, like fighting someone or punishing someone, or getting upset with someone firing someone removing somebody's marks or canceling somebody's homework or their assignment or whatever it may be depending on the position that a person is in before taking any serious action investigate. Now, does this mean that we cannot trust anybody's news or information? We can remember what I mentioned earlier, there are people who are trustworthy, right? And then there are people who don't really have that great of a reputation.

00:34:47 --> 00:35:00

It is said that this particular person will leave an earthworm. I mean, he's considered to be one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. After all, he wasn't Muslim. All right. He did have his struggles. He did have his struggles. There.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:39

is a report in Sahih Muslim, which shows us that later on, he actually had alcohol. And he was leading the Muslims in prayer. And instead of performing to Dakar, he actually performed for rocker. Because he was intoxicated. All right. And so he was punished by our little Dylan Warren, who, I mean, he had his struggles. And in our communities, we always have people who are strong in their faith, and there are others who are weak in their faith. Right? There are people who are known for their truthfulness, and there are other people who have their weaknesses, isn't it? So, you see, our problem is that we begin to look at things as just black and white, right? That is just right or

00:35:39 --> 00:36:23

wrong. Right? So if a person is a Muslim than their perfect Muslim, and if they're not a perfect Muslim, then they must be a non Muslim. No, that's not true. There are people who are Muslim, but they have their weaknesses. So if a person like that, who doesn't really have a great reputation, fast, sick, the word has been used over here, they bring you some information before taking action, what should you do? Investigate. And you know what, sometimes even people who have a good reputation, they bring you some information, but before taking action, you must investigate. Like, for instance, we learned that once a young companion, a little boy, he came to the Prophet salallahu

00:36:23 --> 00:37:06

Salam, and he told him that some people were making fun of you, then when I 15, we're making fun of you. Now before taking any action against them on African, based on the report of that one boy, the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he verified the information. He verified, he investigated. Because the thing is that we're human beings, isn't it? We have our biases, don't we? If we truly ask ourselves, are we 100% Fair in how we think about people in how we treat them, we have our biases, just because we had a bitter experience with someone before. In the past, we don't necessarily view them very positively anymore. And for some reason, every time we see them doing

00:37:06 --> 00:37:26

something, we look at the negative side, isn't it. So even the most well intentioned people have their biases, we're all human beings. So before taking action, always find out the other side of the story. Always.

00:37:27 --> 00:38:08

Sometimes what happens is that one child comes and complains to the mother, right? That so and so hit me or so and so took my toy away. Well, before getting upset at the other child, find out what happened. What did you do to him that he did this to you? Isn't it likewise, between a husband and a wife? I mean, there are problems, the husband goes and complains to a chef, and the chef says, well, your wife is like this and like this, you should immediately divorce her know, find out what happened, what does she have to say? Right? What is the whole story, find out the other side of the story. So, this is something very important that we learn from this idea, because when we are in a

00:38:08 --> 00:38:55

position of authority, when we have to take an action, then we must be neutral. And in order to be neutral, we cannot just hear one side of the story. We also have to find out the other side. Correct. So this is the first thing we learned. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that an atom in Allah will urge Allah to Mina shaitan calmness is from Allah and hastiness is from will from shaitan. So what happens is that somebody comes and tells us, we get immediately angry, we act on impulse, who are we following? Shaitan Calm down, taking the information, okay? Find out investigate. And then think about it, and then take action.

00:38:56 --> 00:39:02

Another thing that we learned from this idea is that do not believe everything you hear.

00:39:04 --> 00:39:16

Before you form an opinion about someone or something investigate, is it true? Somebody says to us, Oh, this isn't the Hadith. This isn't the Quran really. so and so said this really find out investigate.

00:39:17 --> 00:39:59

Another important thing we learned from this ayah is that do not pass on everything you hear. Because part of acting upon what you have heard is believing in it and passing it on. Remember that only the word of Allah and the word of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is worthy of being accepted as it is. Anyone else's statement. Anyone else's, you know, words that are worthy of being checked. They are worthy of being reviewed. They're worthy of being investigated of being looked into. Right? In total Islam is number 36. Allah says when I talk for my laser like I'll be hearing in the summer Well, bizarro world full adder kulula Iike cannon who Missoula

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

Do not pursue that which you have no knowledge of meaning just because you heard it, don't go on passing it around, just because someone forwarded that to you that long text that you yourself did not read. Don't pass it on. Right? Don't do that. Be careful. Another important thing we learned from this iron is that we should be careful about spreading false information. Because you see, well, even Urraca over here, what happened? He saw those people approaching. And he just assumed that they're coming to kill me, isn't it? He formed an assumption, a wrong assumption, isn't it? And then he didn't just form that assumption. He went, and he told the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa

00:40:47 --> 00:41:28

sallam kind of blew it out of proportion. Correct. So this is something that we have to be careful about also, that do not tattletale or gossip or spread false information or lies. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said layered hold Jen Netta a dat a dat will not enter Jannah who is attacked a person who spreads tales, going from one person to another. He said this, she said that he's doing this. I think she thinks like that about you. I think he's going to do this. He said, she said, This is what this is a waste of time. And this is something that leads to a lot of moral ills. We also learned to the prophets, Allah Montes and once passed by two graves, and he said that the

00:41:28 --> 00:41:35

people inside are being punished for what one of them was being punished for what? For spreading gossip, false information.

00:41:37 --> 00:42:21

I think we should also be careful of our prejudices and recognize them and be wary of them when we're judging situations. Yes, very true. That how so easily we stereotype people based on their color based on their work, right, based on how they're dressed, and then we don't engage with them in a respectful way. Right. So this is something that is problematic. And we see how this is really becoming seriously problematic today how people are being, you know, criminalized, basically for crimes that they haven't committed. I mean, lives are being lost. So be careful about that. Also, remember the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the best of you are those who when seen

00:42:21 --> 00:43:06

are a means of remembering Allah. And the worst of you are those who go about with, with what with no Mima? What is an amoeba? He said this about you she said this about you faults deals, those who cause discord between friends and seek flaws in the innocent. Such people are the worst people. Another important lesson we learned from this incident from this idea is that whenever something appears to be ambiguous, let's seek clarity. Before forming an opinion, right, and before taking action. So if something appears to be ambiguous, let us seek clarity. We learned that once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam was visiting one of his wives, he was going to one of the herds.

00:43:07 --> 00:43:18

And as he was going in, a man came out. And he didn't really recognize that men. And he asked his wife that who was that men? She said that he is my brother from foster hood.

00:43:20 --> 00:44:04

All right, because remember that at that time, a nursing woman would nurse like many children, it wasn't a problem. All right, so so many people were brothers and sisters through foster hood, and remember that that is considered as real brotherhood and sister meaning, you know, a boy and a girl who have been nursed by the same woman cannot get married, they are like mom to each other. Right? So, the prophets have a lot of CineMassacre You see, he did not get angry. Can you imagine something like this happening today? A man going to his house, and he knows that only his wife is inside. And there's another man that walks out what would he assume? What would he think? Just think about that?

00:44:04 --> 00:44:12

Let's reverse it. Okay, imagine a woman's seeing her husband, alright, talking to another woman.

00:44:14 --> 00:44:49

And immediately she gets upset. Who is she? Why are you talking to her? Why are we forming such assumptions? Let us seek clarity, right. So whenever something appears to be ambiguous, any phrase any action seek clarity. Another important thing is personal one. Let us think positively about people assume good of others assume good of situations. Don't always read into things and events negatively. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us all good o'clock. Good other appropriate Adam.

00:44:50 --> 00:44:52

Let's listen to the recitation of these verses.

00:44:53 --> 00:44:55
