colavita atom Bala akula gonadotrophin now, indeed or praise belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala The Lord of the worlds

00:04:07--> 00:04:18

I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah subhanho wa Taala another witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his final messenger.

00:04:20--> 00:04:50

My dear brothers and sisters, the neon the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala are so many, so many that we are unable to count them and to ponder over each and every single one of them and be truly grateful to Allah subhana wa Tada. That being the case that we will never be truly grateful or thankful to Allah subhana wa Tada. We will still live live our lives, trying our very best to be a grateful servant

00:04:52--> 00:05:00

from those blessings, is something that maybe we don't think about very much from those blessings is something that we

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

Don't even think about don't pay attention to.

00:05:04--> 00:05:06

And that is the ability to speak.

00:05:08--> 00:05:17

When was the last time that you thought about the gift of speech, the tongue that Allah subhanaw taala gave to you. So that you can

00:05:19--> 00:05:19

make

00:05:20--> 00:05:28

so that you can pray to a loss or penalty either. So you can call upon a loss or penalty either so you can communicate with a bull. I mean,

00:05:29--> 00:05:33

what a blessing This is. Because maybe there are those who do not have that.

00:05:34--> 00:06:04

It allows us to recite the book of Allah subhana wa Tada. It allows us to speak to other people to advise our fellow brothers and sisters to Sue's them to give them good advice. If they're going through a test. It allows us to say a Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh to our fellow brother, our fellow sister, to impart knowledge to others. And for sure, we'll be accountable for what we say, how we speak, and how we address

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

Allah subhanaw taala tells us lm Naja Allahu

00:06:09--> 00:06:11

wa Lisa worship

00:06:12--> 00:06:22

waha Dana, who Nadine have we not give this creation to eyes, a tongue, a pair a pair of lips and shown him the two paths.

00:06:24--> 00:06:38

More out of the blue Java, the famous companion of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He asked the messenger salallahu alayhi wa sallam, what would enter him into the agenda and save him from the Hellfire

00:06:39--> 00:06:53

because this was the Sahaba of the alarm. This is what they wanted. They really desired and showed the paradise and what would take them there and what would save them from the Hellfire because that is the real life in the hereafter.

00:06:54--> 00:06:57

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said tomorrow

00:06:59--> 00:07:25

that implementing the outcome of Islam keyamo Lail the night prayer striving in the path of a loss or penalty either and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, shall I not inform you what underlines and is an anchor under all of this. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took hold of his tongue and said exercise restraint on this I'm sick alika de Sena.

00:07:27--> 00:07:31

Then more authority Allahu Allah said Yana Viola

00:07:33--> 00:07:42

Viola home Oh prophet of Allah. Will in Allahu Allahu wa vimana tequila movie, are we going to be held accountable for that what we say?

00:07:44--> 00:07:46

Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:07:48--> 00:07:49

tequila, tequila.

00:07:51--> 00:07:59

May your mother be bereft of him while Jacobo Nassif Inari Allah wa Jo him ale house wa ada alsina to him.

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

And do you think that the people will be thrown into the Hellfire for any other reasons thrown on there dragged on their faces and thrown into the Hellfire for any other reason, except for what their tongues have harvested?

00:08:17--> 00:08:37

Why was the question asked in the first place, by more authority a law one. Because speaking is something that we don't even think about the words that we say what we say how we say it, maybe we don't think twice. It doesn't necessarily need a great effort from you.

00:08:38--> 00:08:43

You don't need to go from A to B, you need to prepare yourself. You just speak.

00:08:44--> 00:09:13

So more of rhodiola when was asking Are we going to be accountable for what we say? Those words that we from the moment we wake up in the morning we begin speaking until we go to sleep we are speaking throughout the day we are speaking if it was at all possible, to just measure count the amount of words that any one of us would say in one day, maybe this would be a surprise for us. We'd be astonished. You are really speak that much.

00:09:14--> 00:09:16

Do I say that many words.

00:09:17--> 00:09:29

This is why more authority Allahu Akbar, the baby, he asked the question and the Prophet Allah so so I want to emphasize the importance of that what we say because, for example,

00:09:30--> 00:09:43

if you say something against another person, another brother, another Muslim, another sister, another Muslim. Well, they have right to take or to come to you on the day of judgment and say I want my hat.

00:09:44--> 00:09:48

You spoke about my honor incorrectly. You spoke about me wrong.

00:09:49--> 00:09:53

Can a person take the other person on the day of judgment to account indeed they can.

00:09:55--> 00:10:00

And what it would be like for you to stand on your own piano. You try to protect whatever deeds that you see

00:10:01--> 00:10:16

And then somebody comes to you and says, You spoke about me. I want some of your deeds. What about an individual an individual who speaks about nations? What about a person who speaks about different ethnicities? them and these, her Ola

00:10:17--> 00:10:22

1000s. if not millions of people are included. And they say

00:10:23--> 00:10:26

after what happened Mr. Udo de la hora who said

00:10:27--> 00:10:41

will la he by Allah Allah de la Ilaha Leroy. When the one who has no worthy of worship except Him, there is nothing that needs to be imprisoned or has a greater right to be imprisoned than the top.

00:10:44--> 00:10:56

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to Abu Dhabi, radi Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah summit in nahu multilotto, Tony Shea Pani, owner la meridiana ik

00:10:57--> 00:11:06

stay silent for long periods, as this keeps the shape on away from you, and will help you in matters of your deen.

00:11:07--> 00:11:10

So not everything needs a response from you.

00:11:11--> 00:11:14

The moment an urge comes to you, for you to say something.

00:11:15--> 00:11:18

Wisdom maybe dictates that you don't say anything.

00:11:20--> 00:11:26

Furthermore, wisdom may dictate for the majority of the time, you don't need to say anything at all.

00:11:28--> 00:12:10

But not everybody is given this gift of Heckman because this is a gift that allows a panel to add gifts to certain individuals. So as a person can praise and communicate with Rabbul aalameen and can accumulate or Jude so many rewards from Allah subhanaw taala. Likewise, that person can accumulate so many sins, that the person may lie, criticize backbite foul language to exaggerate, to brag to boast to falsely accused others to mimic to make fun. All of these things which the person may have become immune to, or not to think about, because they become so used to it.

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

But the person is accumulating sin of the sin of the sin of the sin.

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

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he was taken up into the heavens on the journey of Islam when

00:12:24--> 00:12:26

he was with God, the only seller

00:12:27--> 00:12:39

on one occasion the Prophet alayhi salatu salam saw people with nails on these nails were made from iron Hadid and that they were scratching their own faces and scratching their chests

00:12:42--> 00:13:05

is like when you move in something from your finger yellow neck or something like that, or paper cut or something like that the pain that that happens to you. What about a person would kneel scratching their own selves. So the Prophet alayhi wa sallam said manha Allah, Who are these people? And gibreel Ali Salah, he said, Humala de nada, Karuna, luminous warrior Corona Fiala

00:13:06--> 00:13:15

these people are the ones who consume the flesh of their brothers of the people and they disgrace their honor.

00:13:16--> 00:13:43

backbiting Reba. Nima. How easy it is for a person just to mention something. And as we know that the Prophet sallallahu ala passed by two graves, one of them had Elias through mineral bowl, one of them did protect himself from urine with Ernie Yum, she didn't mean that the person used to go around spreading lies, spreading false information, spreading pop stories, not giving the full story.

00:13:45--> 00:13:57

Abba hora de La Hoya he narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said in the lab indeed the servant later kalama the Kelly Metin with one Illa

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

Allah Berlin you're

00:14:02--> 00:14:13

a person may say something which is pleasing to Allah so panel to Ireland, but he or she didn't pay much attention to that. But for that reason, that person was raised so many levels.

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

Were in the lab data Canada bill Bill kalama, Minh sobre la la la la la la la fille gentlemen. Yeah, we'd be happy to have you gentlemen. The person may say something which earns the anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:32--> 00:14:40

and doesn't really think about it much. But because he or she has earned the angular velocity penalty. They have thrown into the hellfire.

00:14:42--> 00:14:53

There are those people who think that they are doing good or they think that this is a small matter, or they justify the reasoning to backbite or to say something. Well, we're in the law here.

00:14:54--> 00:14:57

That is with Allah subhanaw taala great matter.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

May Allah subhana wa tada

00:15:00--> 00:15:11

Allow us to protect our own chunks. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us from falling into disgracing the honor of any Muslims. Apolo Cody how there was no law honey welcome included on festival zero in Nauvoo.

00:15:31--> 00:15:47

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah while early or Safi marine praise belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala May the peace and blessings of Allah meet upon his final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:15:50--> 00:16:14

Avi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the sound Hadith, Munna, Yaga, Manali, whoever guarantees for me or to me, and protect that what is between his two jewels and his two legs of the mon hula, hula Jenna, I will guarantee him or her, the gender.

00:16:16--> 00:16:31

Whoever protects the tongue from falling into how long and whoever protects the chastity not falling into how long? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam gave a guarantee for that person to be from the people of paradise.

00:16:33--> 00:16:42

It is one of those actions that as I mentioned, we don't think about because it comes so natural. As we walk as we eat, we speak.

00:16:44--> 00:17:04

But how would it be and how we would change our own situation and the situation of others, if we just took that much more care about what we said, and how we said it. And when we said it, seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala alone, not wanting to harm the feelings of another human being.

00:17:06--> 00:17:16

Now, don't mistaken Don't misunderstand me when I say you don't want to harm or hurt the feelings of another person. This doesn't mean that you refrain from saying the truth.

00:17:18--> 00:17:40

Because the truth, the hack should always be said and saying the truth is not only in your benefit, but isn't the benefit of the others. Who are there listening to you? Or maybe saying something about another person? Which maybe is not correct. Is it upon you to keep quiet? No. It is an obligation upon you to say what you're saying is wrong.

00:17:42--> 00:17:53

That is incorrect. Or you say I am not prepared to stand here and listen to this. I have to go somewhere else. But how many times do you hear that?

00:17:54--> 00:18:05

or How many are you prepared just to keep quiet and nod your head? Yes. Maybe? I don't know, is the honor of another person that has been spoken about. It's not my honor.

00:18:06--> 00:18:33

The honor of all Muslims is sacred, it is protected. So just as you would like your own honor to be protected. You should protect the honor of all Muslims, wherever they are, whether they are your neighbor, whether they are the Muslim, your brother or sister who comes to the local Masjid. But the Muslims around the world you defend their honor. This is our last panel to Allah teaches us

00:18:34--> 00:18:35

on your 1pm

00:18:36--> 00:18:51

do not think that you will be saved by your own deeds or what you did or what even you had. Because all of that if you do not have the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala lucky Mattila. It doesn't mean anything.

00:18:53--> 00:19:01

If you do not have the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment, your deeds will not be the reason for you entering the paradise.

00:19:02--> 00:19:05

And we know beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us

00:19:07--> 00:19:13

that is not your deeds that will enter into the paradise and even my deeds are not the reason for me entering into the paradise.

00:19:14--> 00:19:17

And the companions of the Allahu Akbar, were taken aback.

00:19:18--> 00:19:24

The Prophet sallallahu elysa made it very clear, that even I am in need of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:19:26--> 00:19:36

that day, when everything is brought to you, everything that you said everything that you did everything that you hoarded, everything that you are witness to,

00:19:37--> 00:19:43

will that be as a witness? Not you may think but I won't speak against my own self.

00:19:45--> 00:19:47

My tongue I will commanded not to speak.

00:19:48--> 00:19:57

But what is the loss of panel to Allah tell us, yo, Mata Shahada, Allah, Allah, Xena, to whom? What a de mobdro Ruby, ma Can we do

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

that tongues

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

Their hands, their feet will be a witness for that exactly what they used to do.

00:20:06--> 00:20:24

You will have no choice. You will have no choice in the matter but everything will be laid out in front of you. Imagine now you are told you have one week left. You have a few days left, you have a few hours left, then you will meet your Lord, what is your reaction?

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

How will you behave?

00:20:28--> 00:20:32

For sure you will change for sure you will make an effort.

00:20:33--> 00:20:40

But this is how we should live. If you raised in the morning, don't wait for the evening. And if you're in the evening, don't wait for the morning.

00:20:41--> 00:20:43

You constantly strive and better yourself

00:20:45--> 00:20:46

hallmarks of a good believer

00:20:48--> 00:20:52

as the Prophet sallallahu I do have some said Montana you may know Billa he will you will

00:20:55--> 00:21:03

run out Alia smart, who believes in Allah and the Last Day then let him or her say good or keep quiet?

00:21:04--> 00:21:22

That is the yardstick for you. Is what I'm going to say Kyra Is it good is of benefit for others is a benefit to me. And don't allow the shade one to confuse you to say I'm saying the HAC because we know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam defined to us what is Allah Riba?

00:21:24--> 00:21:33

Vic rokkaku be Maya to mention something about your brother that he or she wouldn't like. And then the companions of Adi Allahu Allah, even if what we say is truthful.

00:21:35--> 00:21:42

Even if what we say is truthful. Even if what you say is truthful that they don't like it, then you have beaten them.

00:21:44--> 00:21:54

So don't justify or the lack of knowledge that you have to say I'm justified in speaking about people, I'm justified in speaking about nations, and so on and so forth.

00:21:55--> 00:22:10

If you feel that you are fully justified, don't place yourself in front of that person, or the people that you are talking about. But place yourself in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala, where you will have no difference,

00:22:11--> 00:22:23

you will have no opportunity to add or to take away. And I didn't mean, and that wasn't my intention. That time was in the dunya. on here, after everything is made clear.

00:22:24--> 00:22:34

No need for a translator, no need for witnesses, other people to speak for you on what you did or you intended. Because everything is recorded, and nothing is missed.

00:22:36--> 00:22:40

We all seek the grace, the blessings and the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:22:42--> 00:22:56

And how do I attain the ultimate victory? The ultimate blessings in the hereafter? How will I attain that? One of those things is to be careful about that. Would you say from today, after tomorrow, I'll be very careful about what I say.

00:22:57--> 00:22:59

Is it a benefit?

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

If it is not of benefit, that it is better for me to keep quiet?

00:23:04--> 00:23:10

Maybe it's to say you want to talk about politics and other people? What is your opinion?

00:23:12--> 00:23:14

I don't know. It's changing every day.

00:23:15--> 00:23:23

There's many things that I am not privy to that I don't know. Allahu Allah. May Allah azza wa jal rectify the situation.

00:23:24--> 00:23:26

That is the person's response.

00:23:27--> 00:24:09

The other person, the person who made a mistake, is that Yeah, you're right. This person is doing this. And they intended that. And they intended this. Oh, my God, how do you know the intentions of people? You open their hearts, you are privy and you know what is going on the gatherings and the meetings and so on and so forth. And when you ask them, where did you get this information from? Social media, newspaper, this news outlet, that news outlet. But tomorrow, when it's talking about their situation, or something's personal to them, they're liars. You can't believe them. You can't trust them. So yesterday, you took it. And today, you're not taking it.

00:24:11--> 00:24:12

You know, there's an issue.

00:24:14--> 00:24:38

So my dear brothers and sisters, there are many reasons which we don't have time to go into really about the reasons why a person may fall into a NEMA slandering Reba. But you should know that you hold on to your tongue. And don't just let it race away from you and speak about whatever you like whenever you like. Maybe it is better for you. And sure it is for better than you that it is not good for you.

00:24:41--> 00:24:53

Let them say good or keep quiet. If you take one thing away from here today, say good or keep quiet, say good or keep quiet, because that was the advice of our beloved Nabi sallallahu

00:24:55--> 00:24:56

alayhi wa salam ala Muhammad

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

Kavita Majeed Allahumma Islam are willing to demean Allahu

00:25:07--> 00:25:08

Allahu

00:25:09--> 00:25:19

Allah Allah Nina. Tina Petunia Hasina waffle. Tierra de hacer una vaca in other but not me also penalty Allah help our brothers and sisters all around the world we are como la silla
