Sometimes in the Muslim community, we treat non Muslims the way that Muslims should be treated. And we don't treat Muslims the way that we should be treating that we we are giving the courtesy that is due and the amount of excuses and hostile lung and accommodation that is due to other Muslims. We give it readily to non Muslims. And then when it comes to our Muslim brothers and sisters, the smallest mistake, right or even a substantial mistake, and we just blast them without mercy. And I'm really curious as to where people got this example from, because if you look at the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he knew the identities of the hypocrites that lived among him there,

00:00:42 --> 00:01:13

they were talking to actual hypocrites, not people who were like, you know, their statements or their actions might be interpreted as being hypocritical, though there were people like that to remember when the Muslims marched on to Mecca, you had the one companion who was going to send a letter ahead to the Mexicans to warn them because he had family there he wanted to protect them and you had the Companions freaking out ready to you know, do something to and the prophesy. Someone said no, no, don't do it because this person meant well, even if he made a horrible mistake, we're not even talking about those people. We're talking about actual hypocrites people who entered into

00:01:13 --> 00:01:35

the deen of Islam only to ruin it. intention on the faculty Cobra like big time, major NFL major hypocrisy, the Prophet alayhi salatu salam knew who they were, and yet he didn't name them. He didn't even name them, except to her Leafa he didn't kill them. He addressed the general ideas if something were to happen, but he kept their identities a secret why would he do that?

00:01:36 --> 00:02:12

And us and 2022 North America English speaking dalasi If we smell a whiff of somebody step out of line or even have a you know, an error like like a major even if it's a significant error, we are very, very quick to say this person is a deviant this person's a hypocrite. This person supports this group and supports that group and is trying to change the religion is going on. Yeah, you tequila fear Allah, if you're alone with your mouth and with your heart, you're treating other people and we bring all these is from the Koran all the ayat that we bring, they apply to non Muslims, and you're bringing them in, you're taught you're to apply them the Muslims. Is this how

00:02:12 --> 00:02:47

Allah subhanaw taala told you to treat other people of faith? Is this how the Prophet alayhi salatu salam told you to treat other people of faith, where's the degree of fidelity? Part of it part of how it happens is that we make the mistake of going from facts to interpretation, we make the mistake of going from facts to interpretation. And what we're upset about is not really the facts of the situation. It's how we're interpreting it. And usually the interpretation has to do with our beliefs and assumption about the motives of other people. This person is trying to change the dean, this person is trying to water down a slam. This person is after the money is after the influence is

00:02:47 --> 00:03:21

after the followers. Where's your evidence now? Where's your Delete? for that? We all know the story. I will Sam, even Zaid when he killed someone on the battlefield and he said Leila and Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah right before he got killed. While the prophesy said I'm saying that you killed somebody who said the shahada, and Osama said well, he only said it to avoid getting killed. And he said, I said that to Saddam, did you open his heart? Do you know what's on the inside? We know the stories but we don't act like we know these stories. If you look at us, you look at the North American Muslim community. How do we treat other people? It's like we never heard this story before.

00:03:21 --> 00:03:36

Every single person needs to really fear the fear of loss Pousada and look at themselves and be hard on themselves and be much more lenient with other people. So may Allah subhanaw taala guide us to what's best and make us to follow the actual sunnah of the Prophet Allah He sets
