hamdulillah All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala we praise Him and we seek His help and we seek refuge in Allah from the evil of our souls and the consequences of our actions. Indeed whomever Allah guides none can miss guide and whomever Allah chooses to misguide

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

A nun can guide him to the straight path, bear witness and I testify that there is no deity worthy of worship other than Allah Subhana Allah Allah. And I bear witness and I testify that Muhammad Sallallahu I knew he was telling them is his final prophet and his most perfect worshiper as to what follows Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us to be conscious of him when he says in the Quran, yeah, are you Hello Dina? I'm an otaku. Allahu Akbar Ducati wala Thermotoga Illa. One two Muslim one. Brothers and Sisters in Islam. In today's chutzpah, we will look at certain Surah verse 53 and salted Israa is a very early makan surah and in verse 53, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Welcome,

00:05:45--> 00:06:36

everybody your Kulu Letty here Eisen and tell my servants to always speak the best of all speech. Welcome, everybody, Your Honor letter here axon in a shape on a Enza Albina home. Verily che upon causes enemy enmity and animosity between them in the shape on account and insomnia. I do one more Bina, know that Shavon is an open enemy to mankind. Dear Muslims, we are all aware that of the greatest blessings that Allah bestowed upon mankind is the blessing of speech, the blessing of tongue, the blessing of being able to communicate our thoughts, our desires, our fears, our hopes, our aspirations. And that is why Allah mentions this as one of his greatest blessings to mankind, or

00:06:36--> 00:06:50

ramen or Allama. Khurana holla called in Santa Allama hula Yan. We are the species of Bojan eloquent speech, no other species has been given eloquent speech. And Allah says in the Quran, when He created Adam was

00:06:51--> 00:07:46

a smarter, cooler. He taught Adam how to speak, the gift of speech was divinely bestowed upon Adam, but you see with that gift, and with that blessing, and with that privilege comes responsibility. It is true that ALLAH blessed us with the tongue, and with tongue He blessed a speech, but with that blessing also comes responsibility. And our religion tells us in verse after verse, and our Prophet sallallahu, wasallam tells us in numerous, a hadith to monitor what we say, to take account of the words that are expressed of the sounds that emanate from our mouths. It's not a trivial matter, it is not a trivial matter. And in this verse, Allah gives us one of these beautiful commandments, say

00:07:46--> 00:08:04

to my servants, to always speak the best of all speech. This verse has a revelation a cause of Revelation, or what have no Katara the Allahu, and we all know no matter and the strength of Omar and the ferocity of Omar, and yes, even the temper of Omar we all know this Radi Allahu

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

Allahu Allah. This is an early moko when he just embraced Islam, somebody came and cursed him and his faith. But Amara, the Allahu and became so angry, that he let loose his tongue upon this Mushrik a series of vulgarities and this and that, at this, Allah revealed sort of that is rock verse 53.

00:08:30--> 00:09:15

And this verse has so many benefits, we'll summarize them. First and foremost. Allah says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam What will you tell my servants? There are some commandments that Allah says directly, a female Salah are to Zakah and there's a smaller amount that Allah instructs the Prophet system to tell us the signifying that both Allah and His messenger are commanding to this. There are some commandments that Allah instructs the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to tell us and these are added in their honor in their nobility, that Allah is commanding the NABI sallallahu alayhi salam to tell us so this is one of those commands and say, rasool Allah to my

00:09:15--> 00:09:59

servants, another point of benefit here, we'll call Larry buddy, if you want to be a servant of Allah, if you want to have the honorific title of a bad, which is an honor to be called or a bad is the highest honor that a created being can be in front of Allah, wherever the right man, if you want to get to that status, then you have to follow some protocols. So say to those who wish to be of My servants will call everybody also notice Allah ascribes this to himself, my servants. What an honor that Allah is saying, These are my people. What an honor that Allah is speaking in the first person, Allah is saying, These are my worship

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

first these are my mahalo that I have honored will call everybody Allah is speaking on the tongue of the messenger and he is saying these are my chosen servants don't you want to be in that category? Don't you want to be in that category that Allah is boasting and saying these are my bad ya know haha don't respond like this What call everybody you are my bad you Abu Bakr, the elite of the Sahaba you cannot go to this level you cannot respond to this man in that vulgarity will call everybody say to my chosen servants, that they should always speak. Not Hassan. Hassan. Hassan means good, speak good. That's not what Allah says. Allah says us and, and us and means the most

00:10:48--> 00:11:38

beneficial, the most beautiful, has now in Arabic is beauty. The lady is called has not an Aysen it is the most beautiful, the highest, the superlative, we call it speak in a speech that cannot be more beautiful, that cannot be more kind that cannot be more gracious, more generous. Choose the words that you cannot think of something better than them, what call everybody your caller to hear us and Allah commands us to always speak the best and the most kind and the most beautiful words. In any situation. This is the default this is the norm. All too often. We love to quote exceptions and of course every rule has exceptions. Of course every rule has exceptions. But why do we always want

00:11:38--> 00:12:02

to find the exceptions? Let us remind ourselves the default the norm is we respond to vulgarities with kindness. We respond to evil with beauty we respond to course language with beautiful language. Notice as well that Allah didn't say it only amongst the believers. And the verse was revealed as a response to a pagan, an idol worshiper cursing

00:12:03--> 00:12:40

and cursing the faith of Islam. And still, Allah azza wa jal says, Don't stoop to his level. Yeah, Omar, you are from my servants. Don't respond to that man with such language speak the best of speech. If this is the case with a pagan, then what do you think between our fellow Muslims when they're not even cursing out with the beloved religion? They're saying something's gonna hurt you. If this is the case of rheumatoid Mahatama, and an idol worshiper, that what do you think of you and your brother in Islam? Who might have said something vague might have given a slightly sarcastic comment? What do you think should be the response and your response? If this is the case with a

00:12:40--> 00:13:22

pagan? What do you think your response should be with your kids and kin? What do you think your response should be with your life partner and the mother of your children? What do you think your response should be with your own parents and your own sons and daughters? Dear Muslims, monitor your tongue, control your anger, respond to negativity with positive do not respond in kind you want to be of the servants of Allah subhanho wa taala. And then notice in this very verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala immediately says something that at first glance does not make sense the linkage in the Shavon and Enza will be no home. shaytaan loves to tear apart any ties between them. Naza in Arabic means

00:13:22--> 00:14:11

to break the bonds. Naza means to bring hatred between two people. Now, what has shaped on causing hatred have anything to do with your tongue? The answer is self evident. Allah is telling us the number one mechanism to break the bonds of kinship is the tongue. The number one mechanism to bring about hatred and animosity between any two people is the tongue and Shavon will utilize what you say to break the bonds even more. And che Thorne loves that inner chef Ana yinzer Will Vayner home he's just waiting for you to slip a little and he will take your slip and make it much worse than it needs to be but you're the one that gave him that opportunity. So do not give shaitan that

00:14:11--> 00:14:53

opportunity why in the shape on account in insomnia I do one more Bina Don't you know shape on is your open enemy he is waiting for you to cause any word to come that he can then use to break the bonds of the Muslim Brotherhood of the ummah of the ties between the husband and wife, mother and son and daughter and mother. You want to break those ties you're gonna say some nasty words shaytaan is going to come and put it in your heart do not give that fuel to Shavon so in this beautiful verse, dear Muslims, we are instructed by Allah subhanho wa Taala we are instructed by ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to think carefully and to choose our speech that is the kindest and the best and the most

00:14:53--> 00:15:00

gentle and the most beautiful, even in response to that which is not kind and not

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

Nice and even if they weren't doing that is not a Muslim. So how much more so when it is coming within our faith, dear Muslims, a man came to the Prophet Sall Allahu Allah, he was setting them and he said, What is going to be the number one cause that people go to jahannam and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pointed to his tongue. And he said, the effects of the tongue, the effects of the tongue, and the profits of them also told us that a man utters a word he doesn't even think much about it, but because of the effects of that word, he will fall into Jahannam and another says another word and he doesn't realize how positive it is the good image it gives and because of

00:15:38--> 00:16:02

it, he will enter into Janna, monitor your words dear Muslims monitor what you say monitor your responses when you are angry, if you wish to be a very bad of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada May Allah bless me and you with him through the Quran, and may make us of those who it's versus they understand and implement is halal and haram throughout our lifespan. I ask Allah is forgiveness us we'll ask Him for He is the food and the Rockman.

00:16:12--> 00:16:59

Alhamdulillah All praise is due to Allah, the One and the unique. He alone do we worship and it is his help that we seek. He is the one who responds to the one in distress and answers the door out of the week. And sets off we all are aware that Allah tells us we have two angels that are put to monitor us. Notice when Allah says to monitor us, what do they primarily monitor? Allah could have said they write your actions down and that would have been legitimate. But to emphasize that of your actions, there's one that is really it takes the lion's share. Ma yell fuming owl in Illa de Hirak table knotted. Allah could have said no action that he does no foot does he raised no hand does he

00:16:59--> 00:17:47

live? No finger does you lift but No, Allah says no word does he utter to emphasize that this is the primary cause of us rising up or falling down? Ma yo fiddlerman Colin Illa de Hiraki when it not a word does he utter except that angels are going to write down monitoring what he says Dear Muslims, we are living at a time when Subhanallah we have even forgotten what it means to be kind and to be generous where the default is to be strangers even to our brother and faith. Our religion teaches us to respond to evil with kindness. And especially as I mentioned within our families within our kith and kin, we're all under lockdown, do Muslims we're all living with our families. And because of

00:17:47--> 00:18:28

this, it's easier for tensions to rise. It's easier for problems to happen. We before the COVID crisis, we could go out and there will be a little bit of separation. Now we are under lockdown. And it's only natural Shea Athan is going to cause tip is going to try to cause tensions to increase. And it's also you know human reality the more you interact, the more causes comfort, tension. Therefore it is so important that we all understand the Quran, a commandment to control our tongue and the prophetic traditions to respond to evil with kindness. And there are some practical tips that I give myself and all of you first and foremost dear servants first and foremost ask yourself,

00:18:28--> 00:19:15

Do I want to be of their abode or right man? Do I want to be of the chosen servants of Allah? And if the answer to this is yes, which inshallah it is? Then Allah tells us where he bow to ramen in Medina yam Shona out of the Hohner way, the hot tub of Umoja hidden Nakatsu, Salah, the servants of a rock man, they walk the earth with humility, and when somebody is rough to them, and his jaw Hill to them, they respond Salem, the number one characteristic of rebel dorama and in this verse, and in surah, Al is Radha just quoted you is to control the tongue and to not be harsh and vulgar. So if you want to be from the Ibadah Rahaman Control your tongue also our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:19:15--> 00:19:58

sallam said that the closest of all of you to meet on the day of judgment and in Jannah will be those that have the best of manners. And he told us that you want me to tell you who are the people of Jahannam they are the ones whose tongues are always vulgar, and motif they have gone on with their own. Their tongues are always vulgar and nasty. We don't want to be amongst them. Dear Muslims, if you want to control your tongue, think of the Antara think of that station right before Jana where every single statement that you said will be accounted for and if you have hurt somebody or back bitten somebody or done something that is unjust, Allah will take your good deeds and give

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

it to that person.

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

Why would you want to give your hard earned good deeds to anybody? On the contrary, when somebody says something nasty, expect Allah to reward you in the Contura expect Allah the reward is from Allah not from that person, be quiet and realize and with this I conclude that once in the beautiful Hadith, Abu Bakr Siddiq was sitting in the masjid or Profit System was there watching and a man came for personal reason, money issues, whatever he became irritated with a workers to deal and then he said something nasty and he gets kept on getting angry about returning the dead whatever it might be, until finally Oh Bukhara severe became irritated, and then he responded back. The Prophet

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

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to Abu Bakr Siddiq, yeah Abubaker when you are quiet, when you had that dignity, when you didn't respond, Allah had sent an angel to respond on your behalf. The minute you opened your mouth, the angel left, we want to be in the company of angels. Angels can defend me and you better than I can defend myself and you can defend yourself. The next time somebody says something mean or nasty, the next time you hear a negative statement, remember all of these things and respond in the best manner. So that insha Allah hota Allah we can be of there about the right man and we can be of the people of Jana and we commend the company of the prophets of Allah Who are

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

they who was selling and we can get the highest levels of Jana Allahumma in NIDA in for a mineral, Allah humbleth or if you had any AMI them and the love of Hatha what a Hammond Illa for Raja wala Danann Illa Kadota when I'm ready, you're going to enlarge your feta Allahumma fildena One AnnaLena Saba Hakuna Bill Iman, wala treasure I feel Kuru Mina Linda Linda Dena Amanu Robina in Nicaragua for Rahim, Allah Houma is an Islam our Muslim in Allah Houma is an Islam and Muslim in Allahumma Islam and Muslim in Allahumma Aradhana or other Islam all Muslim Ebisu and fish grill will be enough to whet your appetite Mira who feet at the bat he Jaco you yah Aziz everybody Allah in Allah to Allah
