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

we begin with the praise of Allah, we praise Him, we seek His help and we ask his forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides, there is no one that can misguide him and whoever Allah misguides there is no one that can guide him. And I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah alone and with no partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the slave of Allah and His messenger. We ask Allah to exalt is mentioned and grant him peace and to his family and his companion.

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

And all those who follow them until the last day or you who believe have Taqwa of Allah as he deserves for you to have Taqwa of Him and do not die except as Muslims or mankind. have Taqwa of your Lord who created you from a single soul and created from it, its mate and from them both many men and women, and have Taqwa of Allah, the One whose name you ask by and fear Allah with regard to your relatives are lies ever watchful over you are you who believe have Taqwa of Allah and speak a word that is true, he will correct your deeds and forgive your sins. And whoever obeys a lioness messenger has indeed achieved a great success.

00:05:37--> 00:05:40

To continue the best guidance is the book of Allah.

00:05:42--> 00:05:57

To continue the best speeches, the Book of Allah and the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the worst of matters in this religion are the newly invented matters. And all of these newly invented matters or innovations and all innovation is misguidance and all misguidance is in the fire.

00:06:01--> 00:06:03

From the matters which

00:06:04--> 00:06:13

the Quran and the Sunnah, gave a great deal of importance to all the matters that relate to the tongue.

00:06:15--> 00:06:20

And what some of the earlier they call as to listen.

00:06:22--> 00:06:30

The calamities of the tongue, or the dangers of the tongue, or the sins of the tongue.

00:06:31--> 00:06:34

Allah subhanho wa Taala told us

00:06:35--> 00:06:39

that every single thing that we say will be written down.

00:06:42--> 00:06:55

Allah azzawajal told us in the Quran, idiot, Allah, kilometer Allah Kiana, Annie Leah Nene, you are Annie Shima licari miles of my yellow fever woman Colin Isla de hiraki Bon appetit.

00:06:58--> 00:07:02

Allah azza wa jal told us that you do not speak even a single word.

00:07:04--> 00:07:06

You do not speak even a single word.

00:07:07--> 00:07:13

Accept that there is a watcher who is recording what you say.

00:07:16--> 00:07:25

An angel on the right and an angel on the left. That is writing down everything that you say.

00:07:27--> 00:07:29

And in the heads of more eyes in Germany tirmidhi

00:07:31--> 00:07:33

that more of the Allahu and

00:07:34--> 00:07:39

he narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him at the end of a long Hadith

00:07:42--> 00:07:51

he said Allah Oh, Bill cabbie malarkey. Daddy calculi. Shall I not tell you what is in control of everything that I mentioned?

00:07:53--> 00:08:03

called a call to Bella Yana Viola. He said yes, oh prophet of Allah tells me the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took hold of his tongue.

00:08:05--> 00:08:06

He took his tongue in his hand.

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

And he said Kufa la kochava. He said, Keep this in control, control this tongue.

00:08:17--> 00:08:27

Then more as he said to him, for cool to call a call to Yana Viola. We're in LA, FC buena de mannatech Hello Moby.

00:08:28--> 00:08:38

Are we going to be taken to account? Are we going to be punished for what we say? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Sekar let

00:08:41--> 00:09:05

me Your mother grieve over you, oh, my eyes, were heavier could burn SF Inari Allah Whoo, he him our color, either at him in house or at him. He said, Is there anything which causes the people to be dragged on their faces or on their noses into the fire, except for the harvest of their tongue?

00:09:07--> 00:09:16

Meaning that all of the people who go to the fire, the reason they go to the fire, it comes back to it comes back to their tongue.

00:09:18--> 00:09:23

And the tongue is the thing which is in control of all of this.

00:09:26--> 00:09:37

And there are a number of third to Lisa. There are a number of calamities that can be done with the tongue and dangerous that can be done with the tongue

00:09:41--> 00:09:51

from the greatest of them, and I'm only going to mention some of them from the greatest among them is to speak about a law without knowledge.

00:09:54--> 00:09:57

In America moral can be so evil for

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

oneself

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

To Allah Allah him Allah tala moon, he only commands you to do evil and to do immoral things.

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

And to say about Allah what you don't know.

00:10:15--> 00:10:21

And saying about Allah, what you don't know is one of the biggest sins that a person can do.

00:10:23--> 00:10:31

And one of the things you will see about the sins of the tongue is that the sins of the tongue are relatively easy to fall into.

00:10:33--> 00:10:36

It's very hard to kill another person.

00:10:38--> 00:10:41

But it's not very hard to backbiting the person.

00:10:42--> 00:11:08

That's why the sins of the tongue are very, very, very difficult. And the other reason why the sins of the tongue are very, very difficult is because the sins of the tongue are subtle. If you're not paying attention, maybe you don't even realize that you did something which could put you into the fire 70 years deep.

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

Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that there will be some people

00:11:17--> 00:11:21

there will be some people who will say something.

00:11:23--> 00:11:24

And in the

00:11:25--> 00:11:28

narration or the testimony and the Hadith is in our

00:11:29--> 00:11:38

in our rajguru in Aurora, later Kela mobile Kelly ma la yarrabilba Datsun Yeah, we beat her said they're in a hurry when

00:11:41--> 00:11:44

a person speaks a single word.

00:11:45--> 00:11:52

They don't think anything of it. And it puts them into jahannam, 70 years,

00:11:53--> 00:12:03

into jahannam, 70 years in Johanna, because of a word, and the person didn't think this word was anything.

00:12:05--> 00:12:06

Like Bobby Hobson.

00:12:07--> 00:12:11

The person never thought this word was important.

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

So the first thing we're going to look at is speaking about a law speaking about Islam without knowledge.

00:12:22--> 00:12:30

Rather, perhaps a person is trying to get near to Allah, and they fall into something which is from the biggest sins in Islam.

00:12:33--> 00:12:34

They're sharing

00:12:35--> 00:12:53

something with their friends, messaging, a hadith or an ayah, or messaging something about Islam, and they speak about Allah without knowledge. Or they add something to what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he didn't say

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

or they tell someone something about Islam that isn't true.

00:13:00--> 00:13:06

This is from the biggest sins and some of the trilemma they needed the biggest of all of the sins in Islam.

00:13:08--> 00:13:15

One Taku Allah Allah him Allah tala moon, that you say something about Allah that you don't know.

00:13:17--> 00:13:35

And this is more dangerous to people than anything, because a person can misguide. 1000s of other people. They can share the wrong information with people and that wrong information can reach to the horizon.

00:13:37--> 00:13:43

And from the affair to the sun, from the calamities of the tongue is lying.

00:13:45--> 00:13:52

Allah azzawajal said yeah, are you Hello, Xena. Taku la wa kulu Colin sajida.

00:13:56--> 00:14:04

All you who believe have Taqwa of Allah, and say a word which is right, which is true.

00:14:07--> 00:14:10

A person it's so easy to tell lies.

00:14:12--> 00:14:18

And these days, we see people telling lies for things which are very, very insignificant.

00:14:19--> 00:14:29

And perhaps a person even swears to that by Allah. Allah. He wasn't me what law he It wasn't me. Well, I didn't do it. And they're lying.

00:14:31--> 00:14:34

And they even teach their children to lie.

00:14:35--> 00:14:37

They say tell him I'm not home.

00:14:38--> 00:14:40

Tell him his dad is not home. They are not there.

00:14:43--> 00:15:00

And they teach their children to lie. And they say it's only a small lie. But lying in Islam is from the major sins, from the things that can take a person into the fire 70 years and the person didn't think about it because the person is

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

Telling lies as a habit.

00:15:04--> 00:15:12

Maybe some of the people who have shops and businesses, and they're in the habit of lying constantly to the people who come in.

00:15:13--> 00:15:19

Well, I bought it for this much money I bought, if I can't, I can't, and they tell lies all the time.

00:15:20--> 00:15:28

And the only way they can sell is by telling lies, and the person comes home, and with their family, they tell lies.

00:15:30--> 00:15:37

This has become a habit for so many people. So one of the things that can destroy you from your tongue is not telling the truth.

00:15:39--> 00:15:47

And that's why one of the characteristics of the Prophet alayhi wa Salatu was Salam is that the prophets never ever light.

00:15:48--> 00:16:05

They never ever light and that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was called a saw the Alma stoop, the one who is the most truthful, he never tells a lie, and the one who the people believe him

00:16:06--> 00:16:07

in what he tells us about a lot.

00:16:09--> 00:16:12

So we must try to train ourselves not to lie.

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

train ourselves to tell the truth

00:16:18--> 00:16:21

and from the affair to listen.

00:16:22--> 00:16:27

The sins of the tongue, which are calamities and they destroy a person,

00:16:28--> 00:16:32

they destroy a person is the sin of backbiting.

00:16:35--> 00:16:40

Allah azza wa jal said, Ye lonely Cooley, whom as it lomasa

00:16:42--> 00:16:48

woe to every backbiting person, everyone who back bites

00:16:52--> 00:16:56

and Allah azza wa jal threaten this person with I'll help Ana.

00:16:59--> 00:17:01

Now la Hill mo cada

00:17:02--> 00:17:14

Allah t tap Tony llf either in LA he Masada Fiamma de MoMA data, Allah threatened this person with the fire that will crush them.

00:17:15--> 00:17:18

And it will burn them until their hearts

00:17:20--> 00:17:26

and they will be locked inside of it with no escape. Because they commit backbiting.

00:17:30--> 00:17:35

And Allah subhanho wa Taala told us this is like eating the flesh of your brother.

00:17:38--> 00:17:43

Are you Hey, go ahead do come and yet coolala Murphy, he made him fuckery to mow?

00:17:44--> 00:17:51

Would any of you want to eat the flesh of your dead brother? You would hate to do so. This is backbiting.

00:17:52--> 00:17:58

And many, many people fall into backbiting because in the first place, they don't understand what backbiting is.

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

backbiting my brothers is that you speak about your brother in their absence with something they do not like when it's true.

00:18:12--> 00:18:23

You speaking about somebody and it's true. It's not a lie. It's true, the person it's really true. But that person is not there to defend themselves.

00:18:24--> 00:18:25

This is backbiting.

00:18:27--> 00:19:14

And if it's not true, then this is slander. And it's an even worse sin. It's even bigger. It's an even bigger sin. If what you say is not true. Many times you see another Muslim walking down the road, you point you say something about them. You speak about them or look at that person over there. Look at that person over there. Even backbiting happens with your hands. And that's why some of the scholars they said the difference between an henzel wellons. In the soul of wire only Cooley whom as he lomasa is that one of them is the one who back bites with the tongue. And one of them is the one who back bites bill a shot pointing with his eyes or with his head

00:19:15--> 00:19:26

or makes it face at somebody. All of this comes under the people who will go to jahannam or who are threatened with jahannam because of what they do,

00:19:29--> 00:19:41

or things that you can avoid. But you have to think about what it is that you are seeing. And from the efforts of the lease and from the calamities of the tongue

00:19:44--> 00:19:47

is swearing and bad language.

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

And again, this has become extremely extremely common among people that people don't think anything of using bad language.

00:20:00--> 00:20:37

of swearing, of using rude language or inappropriate language. And they don't consider it to be something which is serious in the sight of Allah. This is another of the sins of the tongue that a person doesn't think about. And especially when people get angry, they get angry, and they lose control of themselves. And then they start to swear and curse. until some of them even reach the point where they swear at Islam, or they curse Islam, or they curse Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:20:38--> 00:21:14

And this is not something that is far away from you. People who even came to this Masjid, and we saw from this from them, that when they became angry, they started to see words of cursing against Islam, because they lost control of their tongue. They lost control of themselves. So we need to take from this that the tongue is one of the easiest things that you can put yourself in jahannam with, and that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to my wife, that there is nothing else which makes people dragged into the fire on their face except their tongue.

00:21:15--> 00:21:54

This is the problem. This is what is causing people to go to Johanna or because of this tongue and it's something which is not difficult for you to control if you pay attention to what it is that you that you say. So in this hotel, we wanted to point out some of the sins of the tongue that people fall into without realizing that is what Eliza gel made easy for me to mention in the first part of this whatever akula test Marilyn what itself would allow the muddy welcome Elisa Muslim equally Zambian First of all, we have a lot come in who Oliver for over him

00:22:11--> 00:22:21

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam. al al maroussi rahmatan, Lil elemi Nabina Muhammad wa ala early he

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

was a heavy edge marine.

00:22:27--> 00:22:29

What I want to talk about now,

00:22:30--> 00:22:35

after we talked about some of the huge things, mistakes that people make,

00:22:36--> 00:22:42

and maybe they don't think anything of it, we spoke about speaking about Allah without knowledge,

00:22:44--> 00:23:00

lying, backbiting, slander, swearing and bad language. And these are just some things some examples of effort to listen, the calamities and the sins of the tongue.

00:23:01--> 00:23:03

But now we want to ask the question,

00:23:04--> 00:23:06

what can we do

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

to get out of this problem?

00:23:14--> 00:23:21

The first thing that you can do to get out of this problem is to reduce the amount that you speak.

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

And Subhanallah you will be surprised that this is the most important thing to begin with. Don't speak too much. Don't be somebody who is always talking. Because when you are someone who is always talking, usually you are going to fall into Sins of the tongue. You're going to say something about Islam, which is not true. Or you're going to say something about someone else which is backbiting or slander, or you're going to say something rude or inappropriate or something which is displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala all lying and so on.

00:23:58--> 00:24:01

Some people feel like they have to talk all the time.

00:24:03--> 00:24:14

Listen to what Abdullah does. rhodiola and he used to say, he used to hold on to his tongue. And he used to say way hack. Woe to you my Tom

00:24:15--> 00:24:20

Cole hire 1000 an hour we scoot and Sue in Tesla.

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

We're in LA and Nick has attended.

00:24:26--> 00:24:32

He used to say either say something good or just be quiet. Don't say anything at all.

00:24:33--> 00:24:55

And we know the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us this failure. Cool. Hi, Ron, our leaders would say something good. Oh, don't say anything at all. Don't feel like you have to talk all the time. You have to talk. If you don't have something good to say. Just be quiet. And you will get the reward from a law of being quiet.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

Many of the early generations, they said

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

That you don't regret silence.

00:25:05--> 00:25:24

You don't regret being silent. Usually what people regret is talking, they don't regret being silent. If you are silent, you take your time to think about something. And then you speak. Like when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to one of the Sahaba, in a new haibo Mala.

00:25:26--> 00:25:31

There are two characteristics with you that Allah loves and him. Well, Anna,

00:25:32--> 00:25:42

and Anna, it is an ni taking things slowly, to be the first one to speak all the time. Take your time and think about what you're going to say.

00:25:43--> 00:25:53

The second thing is, look at what you're saying and think about it. When you speak. Think about what you're saying. Take yourself to account.

00:25:55--> 00:26:02

Look at yourself and ask yourself is this word that I'm saying? Is it pleasing to Allah? Or is it not pleasing to Allah?

00:26:04--> 00:26:30

Maybe if you're not sure, take time. Think about it before you say it. You can always say Tomorrow you can say later on, you don't have to say it at that moment. Think about what you're going to say. And think about what you said. Because like we said, these are sins that somebody may be like, be habits and the person doesn't think it's something bad. So you have to slow down. And you have to look at what you said.

00:26:31--> 00:26:50

Yeah, you have Latina, an otaku? La halltown for Neff, Summa academically, right? Look at what you put forward for tomorrow. Look at what you said yesterday, ask yourself, was that pleasing to Allah? Did Allah was Allah pleased with me? Because I said those words.

00:26:52--> 00:27:06

This is the second thing. So the first thing is try not to speak too much. The second thing is when you speak, judge yourself about what you say? Is it pleasing to Allah or not pleasing to Allah?

00:27:07--> 00:27:10

And if it's not pleasing to Allah, don't say it.

00:27:11--> 00:27:20

Number three, if you see something wrong, straightaway, stop and correct yourself and apologize.

00:27:21--> 00:27:34

When you say something wrong, and you realized you said something wrong. Stop, apologize. And change yourself. Don't be a person who lets it go say Okay, next time I remember.

00:27:35--> 00:28:14

Say suparna lie should not have said that stuff at all. Ah, that was wrong. I made a mistake. I didn't mean to say that. Maybe you said something about your brother. Say I see that brother over there. Subhan Allah, I shouldn't have said that stuff for Allah. He's a lovely brother. I'm going to apologize to him. In case I said something 234 times you do this, you will not do it again. Because inshallah you will learn a habit from it. You will learn a habit from it. Do the same with other people around you help each other? Because it's easy to fall into. Maybe somebody says something he's not thinking. He just said, Oh, yeah, you know, that brother who did that? Say a particle of he

00:28:14--> 00:28:18

just, we don't talk about people is better. We don't talk about him.

00:28:19--> 00:28:40

So yes, you're right. It's not to be like you're saying something bad about somebody. But just that you help each other to stop doing it. If somebody told a lie, they said something, which is not true. say to them, yeah, he wasn't like that. Yes, you're right. It wasn't like that stuff at all. Ah, you're right. So a person correct themselves.

00:28:42--> 00:29:04

Don't spend your time around people whose habit is backbiting, swearing, lying, and so on. Don't spend your time around those people. Because you're going to end up like them. They're going to have that effect on you. If that is their habit to use that language, you're going to end up using that language as well.

00:29:05--> 00:29:08

If their habit is to lie, you're going to end up lying as well.

00:29:09--> 00:29:14

So try to move away from the people who this is the way that they speak.

00:29:16--> 00:29:39
