Tip number seven

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

don't

00:01:21--> 00:01:26

Oh,

00:03:24--> 00:03:32

law

00:03:57--> 00:04:48

subotica law, Exalted be the name of a law the majestic, the Most High. We put our trust in Him and upon him do we rely? He revealed to us his speech, whose recitation with our voices we beautify, and he gave to associati that we strive to live by. May Salatu Salam be upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to whose Prophethood we all testify know dear brothers that Allah subhanahu wa tada has commanded us to be conscious of him. When he says in the Quran, yeah, you have Latina Armando taco la Hakata. Morton Illa unto Muslim moon, dear Muslims, of the most important characteristics of Iman and faith is that of Siddiq Slidell, which means honesty and truthfulness that Allah azza wa jal has

00:04:48--> 00:05:00

used it to describe himself. Posada Allah subhanaw taala Allah azza wa jal is characterized with silk and our prophets of all the previous prophets. And our

00:05:00--> 00:05:50

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have been described by Allah subhanho wa Taala as being Cydia on nebia he was an IB and he was Cydia and the greatest of the greatest Sahabi. Abu Bakar is called what Abu Bakar acidic. And Allah azza wa jal mentions in the Koran that the righteous are four categories for Annika Latina and am Allahu la him Mina Nabina was said the Athena was Shahada, it was solea in those whom Allah has blessed are the prophets and the Cydia team and the martyrs and the righteous. The Cydia occupies the status even higher than that of the martyr and that is why Abu Bakar is a severe con he passed away in his bed and a modern Earth man and ideal the Allahu anhu

00:05:50--> 00:06:43

they all died a Shahada. The Cydia has the highest level of a nonprofit. So what is civic and how can we achieve civic even OPI mentions that Civic is of many categories and we will mention four of them in today's code but the first of them the lowest level is to have slipped in the heart. When you say the Kadima as our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said mancala La ilaha illAllah silikon min calbee he or saw the admin calbee de cada Jana, whoever says La ilaha illa Allah while his heart has slipped, which means he says it honestly. He says it knowing it to be true, he says it believing it. So to say that kalama would say that is a necessary requirement to get into gender. And that is

00:06:43--> 00:07:32

the lowest level your Eman begins with the kalama of self. That's the lowest level, the sleep of the heart, the second level, the sake of the lesson, the slip of the tongue. And what that means is, you must speak the truth no matter what. No matter how awkward the situation. No matter how difficult the circumstance no matter how embarrassing the reality when you speak, it must be the truth. Weigh the facts you do when you speak, you're going to speak that which is the honest truth. So this is the second level is that your tongue is going to be the tongue of the third level is that your ama your actions will be actions of silk. And that means that all that you do externally will be in

00:07:32--> 00:08:19

harmony with what you believe internally, your actions will honestly portray your inner beliefs your actions will not be hypocritical your actions will not belie what you claim with your tongue that I'm a believer with your tongue that I submit to Allah so your actions will also submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so the third category is the suit of the outer reality of actions and the highest level of civic and the most difficult is the seat of one's consciousness of one psyche. You can also say this is the equivalent of sn in which we are constantly cognizant that Allah subhana wa Taala is watching us so these are the four levels of civil and we work our way from the bottom to

00:08:19--> 00:09:00

the top inshallah all of us in this audience without exception we have the lowest level of sit, or else we wouldn't be here we have slipped when we say that either in the love. We believe in the Kadima. We are honest to Allah that we are Muslims for his sake, that's the lowest level then we work our way up the center of the tongue. We try to make sure everything we say is the honest truth. We are true and sincere. The third level the sixth of our actions, we conform our actions to our speech and the fourth level, the slipcover psychology of our psyche of our consciousness of our soul in that we are on call we we are constantly aware that Allah subhana wa tada is watching us notice

00:09:00--> 00:09:50

how our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam linked all of piety to being honest and he linked to Jenna to piety. Notice how honesty is the key to everything else. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the authentic hadith in Sahih Muslim, he said, I lay Columbus silk, I command you to have silk, I command you to be honest and sincere. I command you to be truthful. He mentioned one thing What does this one thing do? because it leads to piety and piety leads to gender. Notice how quickly the equation became bigger, out of all of the characteristics that he could have told us to concentrate on. He mentioned one, I command you, to be honest, I command you to have Siddiq. Why?

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

Because Cid leads a person to all of piety. It is the key it is the door when you enter through honesty when you enter through speaking the truth.

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

The rest of all of the actions and the economic are gonna follow and when the other actions in a cloud follow what's going to happen, Jen is gonna come after that. So notice this simple, beautiful Hadith, I command you to have sleep, because sleep leads to all types of piety and piety leads to gender, and a person consciously tries to be solid. This is a beautiful idea that goes on a person yet to have a lawsuit means he's always monitoring Am I truthful or not? He's always monitoring, am I saying that which is correct or not? Until finally because of his monitoring, Allah will write him amongst us the attain Subhana Allah, what a beautiful idea. You just have to try. You just have to

00:10:45--> 00:11:29

exert your effort. You just have to always be monitoring you're trying to be truthful until finally Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will write him amongst us a deity. Also we learned in the Quran as endocardium also mentions that Allah Subhana which Allah has praised slither, in every level of our lives, and even the next life and the prophets of Allah would pray to Allah for aspects of Sybil. For example, Ibrahim alayhis salam may drop to Allah, what's your eyelid, the sun? sukrin fill our head in our law grant me that the sound of says the tongue of honesty. What does this mean? If we don't pay him says it means. Ibrahim wanted a reputation of honesty in later generations. Everybody

00:11:29--> 00:12:12

should know Ibrahim was an upright honest man, and he wanted that reputation to be granted by Allah. This is the Lisa who said, this is your prestige, Your Honor, it is based upon your service. Our Profit System is commanded in the Koran level number two, so number one again, listen here, the second level in the Quran. Again, our Prophet system is commanded. We're called Rob by the Hindi Moodle harasser Krishna Maharaja said, say your rasulillah make dua to Allah our Lord grant me in an out that is always upon Siddiq Maharaja and mood holla wherever I go, yeah, Allah wherever I sit and stand yeah Allah wherever my presence is yet Allah make the beginning and the end of it upon what

00:12:12--> 00:13:00

upon. So we have here a drop in the Quran upon the tongue of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that whatever I do, wherever I go, make it a going of honesty, a leaving of truth, my actions should always be actions of the third level. Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in the Koran bashira Latina Amano. anila home cada masukkan Enderby him give good tidings to the believers, that they shall have a footing of meaning your foot is going to be firm upon certain our scholars mentioned this is on the Day of Judgment. If you live your life upon silk, then you will stand in front of Allah would sit and this is what is mentioned in the Quran mahkamah silicon, you are standing a standing of

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

truth and that will be on the Day of Judgment. So what happens when you speak the truth and act the truth and then stand in front of in front of a law upon the truth? You will enter that abode of gender and what did Allah call that abode of Jenna fee Mk II The seduction in the medic immortal. Even gin is called the abode of pseudo MK It is a place where you rest a place where you sit down after your toiling after your tongue after your actions. After you're standing on the Day of Judgment, what will be the final results, peace and sitting down for the MCI D you're going to be sitting down in an abode an abode of what FEMA aka the silicon it will be an abode of honesty

00:13:42--> 00:14:28

sincerity and gender there are no lies in gender the liars don't enter in gender no evil people are there it is McCarthy, silicon, and where is it in them? Deakin mahkota they're in front of the King of kings who is all powerful. So Jen is called the abode of Slidell and it is called the place that will be under Allah subhanho wa Taala. And how did we get there by believing with honesty and speaking with honesty and acting with honesty when we do that, we will stand in front of a lot the standing of honesty and then we will be resting in gender, the resting of honesty, realize dear Muslims that Slidell is a perpetual state we must constantly monitor our thoughts, our our, our

00:14:28--> 00:14:59

speech and our actions, we must try our best to never say or do something that is deceitful or dishonest or a lie. And when we do so, bit by bit what is going to happen. Allah says in the Koran regarding the Day of Judgment had yomo young Pharaoh saw the cleaner suitable home today on the Day of Judgment, those that were honest, their honesty will benefit them. In this world, you might lose a lot by telling the truth. In this world, you might lose a business transaction. People might say something negative. You speak the truth.

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

In this world you might fail a little bit. But Allah says on the Day of Judgment had yomo young Pharaoh saw the tea in a suitable home. Today is the day those that were truthful and honest, their honesty is going to benefit them. That is the day we need to look forward to May Allah subhana wa tada blessed me and you with and through the Quran, and many makers of those who is versus the understand and apply is held on and held on throughout our lifespan. I asked all those forgiveness us will ask him for his love of food and the ramen.

00:15:40--> 00:16:21

Alhamdulillah Hilda hadn't had a summit Aladdin Amelia voila, mula loco foreigner had one of the most simple and beautiful stories of the Sierra that demonstrates what happens when you are truthful is the story of cabin Malik. And what happened in the incidence of the book, we don't have time to go into all of the details. But in that episode, or in that story of the Sierra, one of the Sahaba had the opportunity to give a false lie in front of the Prophet Sall Allahu Allah, he was setting them and if he did, so he thought he could be saved from a type of worldly punishment, but his conscience Allah bless him, and he said, No, I'm going to tell the truth. And he told the truth that

00:16:21--> 00:16:59

the auto Sula law, I was too lazy to go to the book. I have no excuse. That was the thing. Some of the people lied. They said, I have medical emergency My wife is sick. Our gardens have to be harvested. They made an excuse, which was a lie. Gabby Malik had the opportunity. He could have lied. But he said no, I'm going to tell the truth. And Allah azza wa jal revealed a type of worldly punishments that only they have to be no boycotting and talking for a period of time and cabinet himself. He said this was the worst time of my life, the most difficult time of my life, where even the profitsystem boycotted me my own relatives and family his wife was told to leave him but he

00:16:59--> 00:17:39

remained firm. He was tempted by the emperor of Rome, he wrote him a letter and he said, we heard that your own prophet has abandoned you come, we shall honor you. And he said, this is another test from Allah and I shall remain honest to Allah sincere to Allah so he passed by that test. And then Allah subhana wa tada revealed because of that, verses that we recite to this day in suta, Toba wireless Allah that Allah no holy foo, there were three of them. And cow was the most famous amongst them, those three of them that did not have an excuse, and they thought that they would be destroyed and this world would not be enough to have space for them. Allah xojo says because they were honest

00:17:39--> 00:18:21

and truthful, Allah subhana wa tada has forgiven them. And so Allah revealed the forgiveness of God in the Koran, and Captain Surya rasulillah. This has taught me one thing, and I promise you that I'm going to live by that thing to the best of my ability. What was it? God said, it has taught me that honesty will always save us in the end, not lying, not cheating, not being deceitful. It has taught me out of pseudo law, that being honest and truthful will always allow us to be successful. So I promise you, you're a pseudo law that as long as I live, I will try my best to never utter one falsehood. And gab narrated this many, many years later. And he said, Allah tested me many times,

00:18:21--> 00:19:03

but I have inshallah lived up to that promise. That's the reality of the amount of the Sahaba we should learn from that lesson.
