smilla Lao salatu salam ala rasulillah Juana de wasabi woman wala orbit
and ebihara author of the Allahu anhu pada pada Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lot has to do with a teenager issue.
What about horrible weather today?
What I am about to come out about are kuno eva de la Juana l Muslim or Muslim, lava limo.
while I throw
a duck wahana a duck wahana a taco Hakuna, you should it also the result of three times the has been written, Minna sharp and
Muslim, cool Muslim, Muslim heroin demo, or mellow, wearable, or a Muslim?
That's one of the greatest heads up and manners. On my opinion, this should be the most important handdyed that people should know memorize, teach
to their family members and to their community.
And I'd be hereditarily Allahu anhu said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
between yourselves. don't envy one another
Do not call in the resource.
The latter has to do while at tenaya Shu,
and do not out bed one another.
Let me say and do not do and I will explain what that word means outward is another very good translation.
Then in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said also one at above level,
do not harbor hatred against one another.
Do not bear enemity against one another.
One of you should not enter into a transaction, when the other has already entered into it.
And we follow brothers and slaves of Allah.
A Muslim is a Muslim his brother,
he does not wrong desert or despair him.
piety is founded here, is founded here is founded here, pointing to his chest Salalah Salaam, three times.
despising his Muslims brother is enough evil for any man to do.
despising his Muslim brother is enough evil for any man to do.
Every Muslims blood property an honor or unlawful to be violated by another Muslim
reported by a Muslim or him on low carb.
This hand It was reported in many different books of Hadith with many different words some books of Hadith reported part of it, some of them report the whole thing. So it's a quite
common and famous Hadith especially certain portion of this hadith.
Casasola mulata has said
do not envy to have said do in Arabic language for those who are interested also can even to hazard to the originally while data has said you need to have a do but it's to tap to hazard
but they don't like heavy with teta hazard. So they just cancel on to hazard but it's understood. So what's the point from having to tap to that it means that this is something happened from my side and your side. And another word do not envy one another. So see in English, one another.
This one another that phrase at ta is a replacement for it.
Like one another that's two words in English. Just the letter top give you the same meaning. You don't need to say one another
and the same thing in every single verb is going to comes about although
say he said do not envy one another
because it sometimes people
to envy others and the others by initiating it like I see you son doing something so I envy you or it can be a reaction like you know you talk about me then envy you it just something instigated and I start to envy you even originally I don't so nobody saw solemn said that's why he said both sides don't envy one another what's envy we talked about this before envy is to wish that whatever blessing that you have you lose
that you lose whatever blessings you have you lose it not necessarily you lose it and I get it now just I wish that you don't have it
I wish that you lose it even if I don't get it
but I don't want you to have it.
I hate you for it.
And that's the evil that just pure evil and that's what the first sin ship on what's the ship I'm ship on envied Adam it's pure evil.
But there is levels of hazard and hazard that I wish in my heart that whatever blessing that you have that you lose it
But there is another level of envy which is that I actively try to make you lose it
was safe is Allah desirable?
And elements are heavier that I actively tried to strip it struggled or take it away from you
and I'll hazard is the worst is the worst disease for the heart
that's why nobody saw solemn said acid eats your house and not destroy your good deeds destroy your rewards. The same way the fire will eat or destroy the dry wood
Carlin levy sala sunlen wa tada borrow to de barro here it means I don't think in English translation he he put it
Yeah, he did not.
That has to do with that. Later on he put it okay. What
it means no one all the water that the handycams will not adapt bottle and
Yeah, he translated so
don't harbor hatred against one another do not bear iniquity against one another. But to de barro it has that meaning but to Tao bottle it means to balaclava with a dab bottle. I don't hate one another but also don't turn away from one another at the Davos at the debate on Arabic language comes from the word Okay, double double which is the behind which means I turn my back to you.
So why the Arab use the word dubara which means that behind
when he said do not turn away from each other we use the word which is like why would they use this particular part of the body to show you how bad that is?
Okay any don't don't it just to show that this is not a very good meaning. Okay which is you turn away from each other based on hatred or because your enemy to one another because you hate one another and you cut ties with people and and the most clear way that you don't give Salaam to your brother Don't talk to them. Okay? You don't reply to them you just cut them off in the visa Some said don't cut one another off. Then in the B Salatu. Salam said while I a bit about Dooku and one of the words that when I come when i when i tena joshu what is xR j Xu, xR j Xu and nourish an Arabic language
your call and nefesh Okay, or an edge in Arabic language as well.
What an edge or
have you been to the auction?
Okay, so me and Dr. della we go to the auction. Then what it has a car and the auction.
So he want the car so what he does, he said What did I think Abdullah wants this car when he comes you know we make a deal when he comes to buy the car
$3,000 so does a 3500 and I say
30,900 4000 4500 4900 5000 5500 6000 and the car worth I know he wants it so bad
I raised the price I raised the price only so he can lose more money or if I do it that's the most evil why like I'm not doing any good with anyone I just do it because they hate him and I want him to lose money
which is goes in the same Heidi don't hate one another or you do it because you want to make money so I have a deal with someone and they get percentage if I inject the price up you know what I get a price I get a percentage so the owner of the car will give me some percentage for what I did because I made you raise the price okay
and that's absolutely harm because it harm it's harmful to
sometimes people that didn't really matter him or lessons how long if you want to harm the person you want to benefit the seller? Or you just do it for fun?
Like I tell you in those who go to eBay
there is some people they just bet just for for to ruin it
they put a higher price then they don't even purchase it that's why an eBay sometimes when you bid on something Are you serious? Hey, I've been doing this for a whole entire week. So if you're not gonna buy it, you know you just ruined the whole week for me are you 100% sure you want and the which shows you I did I use a maybe three or 4000 my life but I chose me when when this when I got this message is from the seller that there is a people do that that's why the calling this please make sure that you're serious buyer.
So that's ISIS hotline, our religion There is something about this kind of behavior, common sense, but it's still there's something specifically talking about this kind of behavior. In ob Salatu. Salam also said, Who knew about the law here, one be followed brother, the brother to one another and sister to one another. The original the word akuna Abaddon mahana waku.
waku Yeah, Eva de la Juana
waku yaiba de la one oh servants of Allah be brothers to one another. Like
Yeah, any be or have
the quality that makes you one, a brother to one another. Okay.
Then indivision car one is
what a luminol could run, which it means forsake which it means that I don't give you the support that you deserve when you need it. That's what is a holy land
and that's very evil despairing your your Muslim brother or not to support your brother when he is needed? When I pero disparate, sorry disparate, disparate means belittling, despairing, it despairing him, which it means Leia Taro comes from, I'll help grow slowly and make something small. And he is you'd be literally your brother. When you belittling someone, it means you have arrogance, because what arrogance and arrogance that you always see people small, you always see people nothing. You know, I'm not important. Everybody there for you. And everybody, less than you. That's what arrogant is. Then in the beast, sallAllahu Sallam said,
taqwa Hakuna, and he pointed this just it means his heart, soul allow you to live it means that what comes from the heart. Then in the beast, salatu salam said something very powerful in the end of the Hadith. He said, he has been written Minna sharp. He said sallallahu Sallam
word he said it here. Yeah.
dispiriting his Muslim brother is enough evil for any man to do is enough evil for any man to do. Any one of the worst evil thing that you can do to your brother is to be sparing him or to belittling him or to
see him as not insignificant or not important.
That's for one brother.
What about for a whole entire nation?
Don't worry about this Egyptians.
Don't worry about these Pakistanis. Who cares about these Bengalis? Who cares about these Yemenis? Which is today you see people not believing individual believing all in our country and nation.
Oh, who cares about you know moments?
Who cares about this like, people have been jabby or cares about genocide the ogres about you know, in every country they have their own like group of people that they pick on and sometimes they just completely disrespect them
that's how long
B has been in Minnesota. Yeah, and I can I can I'm
like, What do we learn from this honey? This honey shows us
and we are on Farrell Asia inshallah Baba vainness. This honey shows us it is how long to do anything that cause hatred between people.
in Ibiza Salam also said in the Hadith what I am about Luca
arabe and do not overbed your brother or do not.
And he translated another word here, he said.
Yeah, and one of you should not enter into a transaction on the other has already entered into it. Enter into it.
Why? Because that's okay. That will cause hatred. So for example, what I Abby and Malcolm and Amelia
when he told me,
You know what, I will sell you my car. Okay, I'll sell you my car
for or I'll sell you this phone for $100 this one for $100. iPhone 10
kaeleen heard about it. And he came to me. He said, You know what your holiday, I'll give you iPhone 10 exactly the same specification for 50.
Obviously, what I'm going to do, I'm going to leave the $100 to the 50 how the guy the first guy will feel
I was able to convey I was gonna make a deal. He just ruined it. So that will cause hatred.
And anything that causes hatred and cause harm to the community members is haram in Islam. That's what this whole had the merit of this hadith is all about. Why? Because the shapen wants us to hate one another Carlota Otto is sort of not either in redo shavon Gambino como la tamale Bobo Ville Camry, well,
one of the goals of the shippon is to make you hate one another through means drinking, gambling and so forth.
This hand It also shows that is not allowed for you to buy cut, or to disconnect yourself from any Muslim and to cut them off
is not allowed. Is there is any exceptions Yes, there is two exceptions.
is there is another Hadith where a navvy salatu salam
a field Bukhari Muslim and it'll be a uberall the Allah and he said that didn't have to be some Allah Salim said, it's not allowed for you to cut off your brother more than three days. So 72 hours is the max after that. You cannot. And in Nevis, awesome and the best of you, the one who will start the greening of Santa Monica. So I cannot cut you off not to giving you said I'm not talking to you not replying to you. The maximum I can do three days.
You really really hurt me.
I fight with my spouse, I fought with my neighbor I fight with my family member I fight with my friends with my fellow member and community, the maximum three days
and after that you have to give each other Salam if you meet each other. You know if he gives you some time you you get your reply. You don't. You don't need to be friends, but you cannot cut them off.
There is another one which is this is when you cut someone off for personal reason. But if you cut someone off
for religious reasons, you can even more than three days.
That's why navvy selasa Lim he caught up cab, the medic and the other two Sahaba 50 days they did not give them some 50 days they give some and maybe some would not reply and then you will pass by them you will not give them some not only the process of them but all the Sahaba Medina
for 50 days they call them all
because it was for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala as a punishment for what they did. So if you're doing it because of a sin because of wrong things that done it's a religious reason today is an innovator I don't want to talk to
I don't even give him some that's there is no limit to it. But there is another thing, which is isn't beneficial.
like can you imagine somebody come to give you some I'm not gonna answer why? Because you know, I heard that you
made a business transaction which is how
you sell Halloween stuff in your store. I'm not going to give you Sara
if you say that what do you think the person will say all holiday I quit and I gave it all for the sake of Allah please give me Salah if that's what happened, do it but if this is going to cause more damage and you know even before I used to have good influences now I'm going to be cutting them off completely there is no any benefit from this now you don't cut them off.
Because cutting that's why I never saw salemme did not stop giving Salaam to the hypocrites, he only stopped giving ceram to these three because these three will change
by this punishment, but heaven will not change and other people will not change there is other people did the same thing and other places but not only that, they got the same punishment. So you have to be more into her motor dish or masala fasten, you have to look at the benefit. And the advantage and disadvantage.
So the default rules,
you should not cut someone off one day or three day. But if you have to, if you insist three days maximum F for religious reasons, there is no limit for it.
But it is based on Muslim. The benefits and the advantages advantage.
Also, this hadith tells us that you're not allowed. You're not allowed to over to sell someone something to sell someone something with a cheaper price to harm the other person.
Okay, but also, it's not allowed to do the opposite to
me, and I want to buy this you offer me a lowest price.
Okay, or me and the sister here. We agree on something that I'm she's gonna, I'm gonna buy from me. Okay,
this mask for $1.
Okay, hello. So we agreed, then this brother comes in, I'll give you $2 and sell it to me.
Obviously, I'm gonna go with him. So what happened she will be angry she will be hurt.
So as it's not allowed to orbit someone in price. Also, you're not allowed when it comes to purchasing or selling or purchasing both How long? Because it's only spread hatred.
Also, this Headey tells us that we should be brothers and sisters, we should love one another. We should care for one another, we should look after one another. And we should invest in this relationship.
And unfortunately, we don't. We're living for ourselves. Like we don't invest in knowing one another. Especially the pandemic. I know it's hard. But you know what? Maybe it's not I heard people even visit one another over zoom.
But hopefully after this, let's let's get to know one another as a family.
I think it's important. Investing in the Brotherhood, we ask for us to be brothers, but we never invest in this relationship.
Like our family, these two four family, five family, we know each other, but we never really invest in strengthening the relationship.
And that's something needs to be done. And that's what the hell is encourage us to do and attack
Hanif also put a lot of focus on a parent Muslim belittling a Muslim,
or your brother is to belittling him. Because that's the opposite of brotherhood is to look down upon someone to disrespect someone. despise someone
for his look for his lineage for his background, for the way he thinks, or she thinks, the way they talk, the way they dress. Just make Don't make fun of people. That's not funny.
A taqwa comes from the heart. And in Nova Rahim Allah said a taqwa only can happen, when based on the ductwork comes from the actions of the heart, not the action of the limbs, lays the bandage on it. And I don't agree with that. I think a duck walk can be used in different ways. If a duck was referring to the,
the belief, so that's in the heart,
okay. But also the belief is made of actions. So a duck what part of it is the actions of the limbs? Yes, the seeds of any actions, the motivation, the secret behind any actions comes from the heart.
Also, I have a question for you. What's the point for mentioning a duck what and this heady?
If you will remind you before it and after he was talking about this spying your Muslim brothers.
And how important to protect his blood and his honor and his problems?
Why the hell are you talking about brotherhoods he talks about taco
why it was stuck in the middle?
Yes, sir. If you really have Taqwa, you're not belittling someone.
And also when people belittling others, they usually be living others based on dunya. That's right. Based on your lineage based in your social status, how much money are poor rich, that's right. And here, maybe some reminding us that we are. Our level is based on our taqwa,
people or their levels based on the top or not based on anything from these materialistic things that people use today.
a duck one
duck walk will prevent you from hate. Your Muslim brother for no good reason will prevent you from being unfair and unjust because you know that the last panel fallacy and hazard is in your heart.
Okay, hatred, it's in the heart.
free training. It's in the heart. looking down upon others, it comes from the heart because it's arrogance.
Guys, heart is like a container. Okay, hearts like container. Fill this container with water. There is no space to put any thing in it's already when you have a bottle and it completely seal full with water. You cannot put any more What? Juice for example, that's right. Because it's filled put rocks in the in the bottle rocks. Or let's put it better put diamonds in the in the in the in the battle. And that your bottled water, put it filled with diamonds. Okay, or gems? Can you put stones? No you can't because it's filled. That's right. Fill your heart with tap water. There is no space for these other evil things.
But fill your heart with all this garbage. There is no space for that.
One of them is the heart of the container. So you have to cleanse your container like
Be careful. This is a key point in my talk today. The heart is what a container watch what you fill your heart with
because it's filled already with love for the dunya there is no space for love for the aka
A lot of us get deceived by this. Oh I can do both.
You know what it takes away from each other? you balance the not saying don't love Don't don't don't work for the dunya No. But if you attach your filled your heart and with the love and and that's what all what it takes majority of your heart There's nothing left for for the
win the person keeps saying your brother your Muslim brother is that all these rules that have been applied to the Muslims only. So I cannot for example, raise the price or offer better you
Deal, just for the sake of phrasing the price with a non Muslim?
Is this honey only applied to Muslim or non Muslim? I desire him a lot to talk about
selling something or offer offering a better price.
And for the person
he said that's only related to the Muslims but another narration from the hanabi Allah and majority of the Forgot said, No, all the rules in this headache actually apply to Muslim or non Muslim
except you hate someone you hate someone for the sake of a lot and I mean you hate his cohort on that's different. But you should not betrayed you should not be allowed to like you should not be insulting you should not envy Muslim or non Muslim or anything. All people all humanity should be treated good. But we've talked about Muslims, because that's where you start. If you're not good to the people next year, you're not going to be good to the people far away from you.
This headed when the Muslims do not it means Haram. It's not macro It is literally
why Nabisco Sallam said enough evil to be listening your brother or displaying sparing your brother, because I'll keep it the prophets of Salaam said that as much as a Yanni the mass mustard seed is enough in your heart to prevent you from entering
that smallest amount, like the smallest. And you can think of the head of the smallest step and that much arrogance in your heart, it will prevent you from entering gender, you have to be cleansed.
In the basis of him said his property, his his money, his wealth, his property. his wealth is how long for you to valid in violate
a lot of people today and his honor a lot of people today, they might not kill you, they might harm you physically, but they don't have a problem with to mess with your money.
And they don't respect your wealth.
And we don't respect the wealth of our brothers and sisters.
Under wish never. He said hold on. Yeah. And you're not you should not do any type of violation towards your brothers money. Any idea about your money, the way you care about your money.
I care about not to be wasted not to be used in the wrong way. The same way I care about my money, I want you to think about this. Then we look into the Muslim world today. And how we deal with each other. Look at when we sell or buy
my best. My goal is to get as much money as I can from you.
So how about one of the map?
He had a store on the market. So has this the salesperson sold.
He purchased like
a lump us on a Mohamad horse
from someone. And he said I got it for 200.
He said go and get me the guy who sold you the horse. So young man.
They brought him and he said did you sell it for 200? He said yes.
He said Do you know how much your house worth? He said no. But I thought 200 is good. He said if somebody offered you 300 would you sell it?
Then he said what if somebody offered you 400? What do you sell it? Yeah. Also to the person.
He said, What about if I give you the freedom and I know someone who will buy it from you for 600?
Absolutely. Until he said 800? He said yes. And he gave him 800 you know,
from 200 to 800.
He said that's what worth it. And I am buying a good deal.
Membership data is not you being smart
to cheat me.
That's not called Smart. That's called cheating. That's called no no respect for your brothers.
If if the profit merger profit
is high, that's fine. Some product the merger profits very high. I understand that. But some people they will give you something worth nothing or take advantage of your ignorance.
That's not good.
That's what we talked about here.
Look at for example, those who will tell you Oh, I have
Any investment? How many people I witness in my short lifetime? I know person lost hundreds of 1000s and hundreds of 1000s, literally, of dollars, because somebody said to them, Hey, why don't you give me 101? Give me $5,000 out invested for you. Give me $10,000 I've invested for you. You know, give me money on I will open a store and I will make and you know what? He takes your money and you don't see anything after that. He takes it that he wasted Oh, I'm sorry, you know, business. It's, you know, your nose and you went?
Yeah, but did you do your due diligence? Did you? You told me that you did your due diligence that you investigate it?
No, he didn't.
That's why I never saw himself if he took people's money. And you knew you're not going to be able to give it back to them, you meet the last one as a thief.
Even if he didn't steal it.
Another way of how the wealth of your brothers or the money of your brother or the property of the brother is harmful is to violate
those who take loans from you. And they never pay you back, even though they have the ability to pay back. Unless you don't give him that he said you don't need to pay me back. I mean, very relaxed.
But I'm asking begging you Can I have my money back and you keep playing around?
Part of also maybe someone who said the property and among the wealth of your brother, you not are allowed to do any kind of violation against it
is to wasted is to give him a bad advice in business or based on ignorant. He didn't know any better.
As organization, we should not waste the Muslims community's money.
Look, one like I said this before, if we heard about organization, they brought a comedian to a conference and they pay the comedian. A quarter million dollar
Isn't that like violating your Muslims brothers money, I think give you the money to do that.
And another person they give $50,000 for a singer
for person to come to do an
audit for free. They asked me
somebody to garnish. My question is if someone paying it from his own money, that's fine. But that's the money that they raise funds for to help the poor and
that's just not correct.
And it also shows the importance of protecting the honor of your brother and it means the honor level it means you need you don't back by him You don't say bad things about him you don't insult him you don't belittling him all the time.
No claim Rahim Allah said I saw a lot of people can protect themselves from violating your
any making violation against you in relation to your body by killing or injuring or physically harming you. But they don't have a problem emotionally harming you. I don't I don't have a problem mentally harming you,
you know, psychologically harming you, and all this harm.
And the order honor is very limited. And error is much bigger error means you know, any kind of violations which is in like an intangible.
Like has to do with your emotions or your feelings or your mental
and your honor as well.
malice pantalla protect all of us.
We'll stop here shala.
Next class will have a couple of hands together. Very short.
Two or three. They're very short and most of the things that are going to come we already covered before. So let's see that is some questions
to answer it, and then we call it for the night in Charlottetown.
I can't read anybody at Sinochem people from the zoom
setia Ibrahim against their
receivers like things just to some of they're just all hair. Yeah, yes. Last last week so someone asked me question about back about
I guess it was about injustice or
Yeah, backbiting. So let's see somebody who you can't say no to they like to backbite like a father or a mother or a brother or a husband or a wife. It's kind of hard for you to tell them, Hey, don't back by what should you do, and you can leave.
In the B cell Li Sallam said, you can say something, you can change the subject. You know, just don't be involved in the conversation. Don't be involved in saying bad things about the least you can be you can hate it in your heart. You can in your heart, you know, if you don't agree on that, but don't participate in it.
I think there is another question also last week was in regard to
Africa right now. But if you remember, I will be able to, I'll be happy to answer.
Otherwise, we are good to go Charlotte data. I have a class tonight
with a modern Institute,
to my brother and sisters in the east of the South Asia. So I'll be teaching from nine to two AMS. So I still have a long way to go. And I want to say something before we we end.
And in that area.
We used to have
a brother who is to sit right there.
Who's not with us today
calling us to pick him up or prove us.
He didn't pick him up.
Because he passed away.
He died Rahim Allah And tomorrow who would be buried
and I think his funeral is going to be 11am Amita
if you go there Just be careful because of the Coronavirus don't come too close double mask
otherwise, just make two out for him. And I asked her last night alibi, his name his attributes to forgive his sins and to raise his level and gender and to
replace him with a place better than this place.
And I asked Allah subhanaw taala to give
strength to his family.
parents just paid off his debt
and please I request because I know a lot of people don't we talk about manners and brotherhood that was like that. One of the thing that's really bothering a little bit is people keep asking how did he die? Any I understand because a person young you will be asking how he did he die? Car Accident? No, he didn't
he didn't die in a car accident. You know someplace and just die. what he was doing there
would haven't been was he This was
I mean you'll find more interest about just the gospel of the talk or like I don't know anything I didn't ask I didn't like you know
what the focus is right now it's not how he died. Well the focus for you should be to make the app for the person who died and to fulfill the duty your duty towards him.
And that's sad like some people go into so detail like all what your father's had. Is it cancer is it heart attack? Oh, so
if you are so close Yes. When did he die? Was this just a general but sometimes some details can be a little bit not especially if the person just doesn't want to share details.
People start digging and looking and mother I don't know anything about I just know that he died and that's all I know. And I don't care. Anything other than that, my, my my community members not with me today.
And I hope we learn it's it's like for me, it's like this kind of nosy things like when somebody asks you Oh,
Mashallah, you got this job? Yes. How much did he give you?
I mean, the first question how much you make
somebody's calling the phone and asking What are you? Excuse me? I mean,
last time I checked we're not married. You know?
Are you okay? He is not you know my parents. What are you? Yeah it just weird
so some people need to change that. It just may not be Don't be nosy
you know, be like me when I find people's
I give people their nose back when I find it in my business.
But it is really really hard and my heart goes for his parents.
And I know the mom came today from overseas and
his brother and stuff like his his beautiful family that
I can't say enough like how sweet and nice this brother was for him Omar.
But this has done Yes. And dombey ever thinking that you have a long life? Not because you're young.
