one of the important character traits, qualities of the believers that they keep their promise that they fulfill the pledges. They maintain their covenant. They are trustworthy. They don't betray. They don't break promises. And they don't deceive.

00:03:30--> 00:03:33

And they don't stab people on the back.

00:03:34--> 00:04:03

One of the important quality of the believers Allah subhanaw taala when he mentioned the quality of the believers, when he said the earth let me noon, success indeed are the believers. But who are they? Later on Allah Subhana Allah said when levena homely Amma naughty him was the Marwin though the believers are also those who are true to their trust and covenants.

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

Because they understand well oh for Bill, I had the in the can and Masuda. Honor your pledges for you will surely be accountable for them. Can it be Allah Who Anna used to always remember? Sometime one time she made that statement? She said, I made the pledge, I made that promise to Allah subhanaw taala said, I did not fulfill it. And she will teach the deed did not fulfill it because an excuse a valid reason prevented you from doing that. But she said but what I do with what Allah said in the Quran, in the kana Missoula that means in the Day of Judgment, I will not pass. I will not move on. I will not advance the agenda. Until Allah subhanaw taala stopped me and asked me

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

About this

00:05:03--> 00:05:13

just think about the some how tense it is when you stand before a judge to ask you if I tell you today we're going to come and audit you,

00:05:14--> 00:05:22

the IRS coming with their lawyers to audit you, no matter how good you are how good you know can you record your you will be worrying.

00:05:23--> 00:05:29

Who wants that? who volunteered me would love to be questioned and put under the microscope.

00:05:30--> 00:05:32

It's terrifying it's scary.

00:05:34--> 00:05:36

And that's what scared her.

00:05:37--> 00:05:42

Well, I will phobia I didn't learn either had to what

00:05:43--> 00:06:11

Obul Amen. That will key the walk or the journey to Mala ecom caffeine in Allah, Allah MUMA to find goon honor Allah's covenant, when you make a pledge, especially when you say, well, like, and you make that emphasis. I will do that while like I promised to do this.

00:06:12--> 00:06:44

It's that's one of these character traits. Unfortunately, today, it's vanishing. It's became a norm that people make a promises that they don't keep starting from politicians, to businesses, and it became more and more common, unfortunately, cut corners. And it's not a big deal. Even inside the field of hair and Dhawan organizations and, and everyone every aspects between families.

00:06:45--> 00:07:17

You know, not keeping up the promise that you made with ALLAH SubhanA, WA Tada and going down to the closest people, to you, your family, to your people, to your community, to yourself and for and that's one of the worst promise that you can break the promise that you made with your own self. You know why? Because when you break a promise with someone, that person will look down upon you. That's right. When you break a promise with someone, that person will always have a negative view for you.

00:07:18--> 00:07:35

You know, what's the worst thing to have? When you have a very negative view of your own self? When you have no self respect for yourself? Because he know that you broke that promise? You know, and you can is nothing to be you break it because he can't know just because he didn't care.

00:07:37--> 00:08:14

And be I didn't him sit on profits and messenger or praise by being those who kept their promise. Well, Ibrahim Alayhi Wafaa Ibrahim, the one who fulfilled his promise. Kind of an ibis, were fairly law he will bow off he thought Atilla he was erratic color. Tada. Yeah, and he was afraid that he fulfilled his promise to worship Allah subhanaw taala to deliver the message to stay his course. Even though he suffered so much

00:08:15--> 00:08:38

Salawa to Rob usrm, who Allahu Allah Nabina Muhammad, with chlorophyll Kitabi is now here. In who can assign the L word? What kind of Rasulullah Nebia. When Allah mentioned a quality of a prophet and messengers, they have so many good qualities, but when Allah mentioned specific qualities, is to show you how important these qualities are,

00:08:39--> 00:08:52

especially with public figures, especially when you present something. And I'm saying for us as Muslims here, we're all ambassadors for our religion you like it or not, especially when you live as minority.

00:08:53--> 00:09:09

You're a present. I know sometimes it's overwhelming. Sometimes you feel it does look heavy, but that's what it does. Say unhemmed Allah Allah chose me to be among those who bury this responsibility, and you like it or you don't you carry it.

00:09:11--> 00:09:13

You're presenting the dean.

00:09:15--> 00:09:27

And mentioned in the book, a prophet, the story of his man. He was truly a man of his word. And he was a messenger and profit from his Lord,

00:09:28--> 00:09:59

a man to be united. He was Salatu was Saddam for Saudi. I mean, he's the trustworthy person sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and one of the most beautiful incident that didn't to be salatu salam, when he left Mecca to migrate to Medina. You know that corporation the disbelievers kept all their belongings and monies and golden and the thing the valuable things with him until that moment, so newbies are seldom left and even avatar left behind to make sure to distribute it and to give it back to

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

The people

00:10:02--> 00:10:20

not only that, you're gonna have a federal the Allah who won. In the Battle of badger I heard the call of the process Allah and you might all know will remember that the battle better. The kuffaar were trouble that mount of soldiers then the army of the Muslims.

00:10:21--> 00:10:33

A handful people have horses while you have 10s And hundreds or 10s of people have horses and the other side's setting up is a set of needs every sword every hand every man

00:10:35--> 00:10:39

to the federal the Allah and said I was with EBI Hasid

00:10:41--> 00:11:06

and when I heard the call of better, an odd way to join the prophets of salaam I was captured by the people of Quraysh. And they asked me you go into fight with Muhammad to support Muhammad. We said no, no, no, we're going to Medina. We're not going to the process Allah's army. He said you promise is it a promise you promise you're not gonna have got to fight to them said we promise just let us go then they let them go.

00:11:08--> 00:11:16

It was a trick for just want to get out and they originally want to join the process ALLAH. So he came to the problems of the Rasul Allah What should we do?

00:11:18--> 00:11:22

Then in Nabi SallAllahu sallam said, keep your promise and go back to Medina.

00:11:24--> 00:11:29

Since you made the promise you keep your promise. And you go back to Medina.

00:11:30--> 00:11:33

When hirako, the Romans, Emperor,

00:11:34--> 00:11:40

ask Abu Sufyan about the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, what did he ask him about the prophecy?

00:11:41--> 00:11:46

He didn't ask him by the way about what miracles prophet had. And he might tell you

00:11:48--> 00:11:51

about the miracles or did he do any miraculous things? No.

00:11:52--> 00:11:54

He asked about character.

00:11:57--> 00:11:58

As he betrayed

00:12:00--> 00:12:08

he said, No, Palaka, delicate, MBM. That's the character trait of prophets and messengers. They never betray they never break promises.

00:12:09--> 00:12:11

They fulfill the promises

in Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam said, three clear sign of hypocrisy. One of it is if you either had this accident when he speaks he lies we don't make a promise they break it with to mean a hun when you trust them with something they betrayed you reportable Buhari?

00:17:50--> 00:17:55

How can you keep your promises? Don't ever make a promise you cannot keep.

00:17:56--> 00:17:58

Don't ever make a promise you can keep.

00:17:59--> 00:18:03

Don't make too many promises. So you overwhelm yourself.

00:18:04--> 00:18:16

Don't make these two bigger promises. They said always, you know. Yeah, and he always overcompensate. But don't over promise.

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

Three things you should never break. That's why you have always the intention. I will never break I always say that he lie of teaching me three things you don't break in life. You break don't break your promise. Don't trick break a trust and don't break somebody's heart.

00:18:35--> 00:18:50

It's very hard to it's like a mirror when you break it you cannot bring it back. These three is so hard to salvage. It's like a mirror you cannot put it together back very very hard to put it back together and it will be as perfect as it used to be.

00:18:51--> 00:18:59

Also make sure that you're always in you make a promise. You have the intention to fulfill it. And you ask Allah Subhana Allah to help you to fulfill it.

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

But if you just keep making these promises and inside your heart you never really intend to fulfill there's a problem friend of mine was once was shooting and he's a speaker's recording something for the TV. So the cameraman every break in 15 minutes he goes on smokes.

00:19:18--> 00:19:34

So should you be waiting to quit smoking? Drama Vaughn excellent opportunity. We are Maccha were last third not the last 10 days of Ramadan. So like Shall I shall I promise y'all our hellos quit just make the offer me

00:19:38--> 00:19:59

he's excited he's committed than this. Yes, it okay data. He said I will face the camera from the milk from the window. I raised my hand and said y'all lie out hammered. While I mentioned Allah's names are beautiful names and attributes. And it really beg Allah subhanaw taala put this long introduction. I was so moved by it. He was in tears and everybody's saying I mean in the room and I asked him last time

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

data for so many things for this man, health, wealth, children, family, you name it, everything that I said, y'all make it all happen to him if he quit smoking.

00:20:12--> 00:20:21

I don't know why he said that. But he said the guy was saying I mean, I mean when I said that, he stopped and he's, like, looked at me like that.

00:20:22--> 00:20:24

He never said, I mean

00:20:26--> 00:20:27

do you know why?

00:20:29--> 00:20:31

Because he never really intended to quit smoking.

00:20:32--> 00:20:39

It was just a cheap word. Yeah, sure. I'll promise you I'll do that. He never had that real determination from inside.

00:20:41--> 00:20:46

I will help you to keep your promises. Because Allah will help you to fulfill them.

00:20:48--> 00:20:58

People with good intentions, make promises I believe sometimes. But you know what I learned people with good character keep them up.

00:20:59--> 00:21:05

Malasana to Allah make us among those who always keep their promises ahead of us and I told myself that Allah was

00:21:08--> 00:21:18

hamdulillah ha salatu salam ala Rasulillah who Allah and he was so happy women whatever but one of the things that we have to always reflect upon is our promises to our family.

00:21:19--> 00:22:02

It's so hard for me when a see people have made promises upon marriage to their spouses to treat them well to be honest, to be good to them and they don't fulfill these promises so hard for me to see people have made the promise when they get into this relationship that they'll be good father a good mother but they're not they're not fulfill the promise the rights upon their children's rights. It's so hard for me when I hear her stories about people not giving them the dowry to their spouses and you know, not fulfilling all the conditions and when they say together or when they separate from each other. There is a promise there is a covenant been taking honey I mean come me second

00:22:04--> 00:22:16

Honey, I mean come Mitaka it's a very very you know, taken from you affirm commitment towards each other. By the words of Allah this man and this woman became Hannah to each other.

00:22:19--> 00:22:25

I don't want to end my football this listen to what Allah says in surah October.

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

and there are some who had made a vow to Allah. If he gives us from His bounty, we will surely spend in charity and be of the righteous, but when he gave them out of His Bounty, and generosity, the Almighty Allah, they withhold and turned away.

00:23:34--> 00:23:50

Allah says, so he caused hypocrisy to be blood into their hearts. He punished them by make hypocrisy settled in their hearts until the day they meet Allah. Yara.

00:23:52--> 00:24:04

Those people what they made the promise, the promise, if Allah gives them wealth, that they will be donors that they will give for the sake of Allah, the promise to do something good. Allah give them the money.

00:24:05--> 00:24:13

They promise do things that they will be righteous, and they will be given giver donors donate support.

00:24:14--> 00:24:48

But they break their promise with Allah subhanaw taala. And what was the punishment that Allah subhanaw taala put hypocrisy in their hearts? That's a terrifying verse for any one of us. And I do believe that was the reason the Sahaba was so scared of hypocrisy. When Monica said I met 30 companions witness the better a better all of them fear hypocrisy. You know why? Because he doesn't know how can hypocrisy been installed in your heart because of a premise that you break up with Allah as a form of punishment.

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

You promise Allah that will be the last time to do it. I'll never do that again. I'll never be there again. I will not do this haram again. I will make sure that purify

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

Why my money? I'll just I made so many promises and every time you break those people what they broke the promise of giving the sadaqa giving for the sake of Allah. What about those who made promise to stop the major sins, the volume the injustice, and every time Allah give them a chance to correct themselves they don't

00:25:23--> 00:25:44

and to freight, that Allah take that Eman away from your heart and replace it with hypocrisy will continue and the secret hypocrisy the problem with hypocrisy you don't feel it. Hypocrites truly believe they are good hypocrites said in the manner in the Muslim world good we don't get

00:25:45--> 00:25:50

but they don't feel it. That's the dangerous of it.

00:25:52--> 00:25:54

Had something make us

00:25:56--> 00:26:03

think so much about all these promises. We repent to Allah subhana sincerely. We try our best to keep it up.

00:26:04--> 00:26:06

May Allah subhanaw taala use Tamanna
