00:02:49 --> 00:02:50

my god

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

My daughter was

00:03:21 --> 00:03:22

how are you

00:03:57 --> 00:03:58

How y'all

00:05:14 --> 00:06:03

Bartok Allah, Exalted be the name of Allah, 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 us a Shetty 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 Subhana Allah Allah has commanded us to be conscious of him when he says in the Quran, yeah, you are Latina. I'm an otaku. Allah cultural quality wala temotu illa Anta Muslim moon, dear Muslims, of the most important characteristics of Iman and faith is that of silica, silica which means honesty and

00:06:03 --> 00:06:54

truthfulness that Allah azza wa jal has used it to describe himself. Posada kala sada Allah Allah azza wa jal is characterized with silk, and our prophets of all the previous prophets and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had been described by Allah subhanho wa Taala as being Sadiq Khan be, he was an AB and he was to the UK and the greatest of the greatest Sahabi Abu Bakr is called what Abu Bakar acidic and Allah azza wa jal mentions in the Quran, that the righteous are four categories for Oli Kaladin and Allahu Allah him Mina nabina was said the Athena was shahada, he was solid in those whom Allah has blessed are the prophets and the Cydia kin and the martyrs and the

00:06:54 --> 00:07:44

righteous. The Cydia occupies a status even higher than that of the martyr and that is why Abu Bakr is a severe con he passed away in his bed and Ramadan, Earthman and ideal the Allahu Anhu they all died a Shahada. The Cydia has the highest level of a non profit. So what is silk? And how can we achieve Siddiq even though he mentions that silk is of many categories, and we will mention four of them in today's codebook 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, Man Karla Ilaha illa Allah see the con men Calbee he or saw the con men Kobe the Khalil Jana, whoever it says La Ilaha illa Allah while

00:07:44 --> 00:08:33

his heart has Sivak, which means he says it. Honestly. He says it knowing it to be true, he says it believing it. So to say that kalima would sleep is a necessary requirement to get into Jannah. And that is the lowest level your Eman begins with the Kalama of silk. That's the lowest level, the slit of the heart, the second level, the silk of the sun, the surface 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, why the cooltone fired you when you speak, you're going to speak that which is the honest

00:08:33 --> 00:09:21

truth. So this is the second level is that your tongue is going to be the tongue of seduction. The third level is that your armor your actions will be actions of silk. And that means that all that you do externally, will be in 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 signal of the outer reality of actions and the highest level of civic and the most difficult is the Civic of one's

00:09:21 --> 00:10:00

consciousness of one psyche. You can also say this is the equivalent of air sun in which we are constantly cognizant that Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching us. So these are the four levels of Sybil and we work our way from the bottom to the top in sha Allah all of us in this audience without exception, we have the lowest level of Sith, or else we wouldn't be here we have sinned. When we say La Ilaha illa Allah we believe in the Kadima. We are honest to Allah that were Muslims for his sake. That's the lowest level then we work our way up the scent of the tongue. We try to make sure everything we say is the honest truth. We are true and sincere the

00:10:00 --> 00:10:46

Third Level the slipcover actions we can form our actions to our speech and the fourth level, the Sidcup, our psychology of our psyche of our consciousness of our soul and that we are on call we we are constantly aware that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is watching us notice how our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam linked all of piety to being honest, and he linked to Jana 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 they can be silk, I command you to have civic I command you to be honest and sincere, I command you to be truthful. He mentioned one thing, what does this one thing

00:10:46 --> 00:11:34

do? Because civic leads to piety and piety leads to Jannah. 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 silk. Why? Because silk 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, the rest of all of the actions and the o'clock are gonna follow and when the other actions and o'clock follow what's going to happen. Jana is going to come after that. So notice this simple, beautiful Hadith, I command you to have soup, because slick leads to all types of piety

00:11:34 --> 00:12:20

and piety leads to Jannah. And a person consciously tries to be saw. This is a beautiful Hadith that goes on a person yet to Haroldo silk means he is 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 to do clean Subhanallah What a beautiful idea. You just have to try. You just have to exert your effort. You just have to always be monitoring you're trying to be truthful, until finally Allah subhanho wa Taala will write him amongst us a deity and also we learned in the Quran as I am also mentions that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala has praised slickeq In every level of our

00:12:20 --> 00:13:05

lives and even the next life and the prophets of Allah would pray to Allah for aspects of Sybil. For example, Ibrahim alayhis salam made dua to Allah wa Jai Lili Sana sudo clean fill Akkadian O Allah grant me the son of scythe, the tongue of honesty. What does this mean? Ibaka yam says it means Ibrahim wanted a reputation of honesty in later generations. Everybody should know Ibrahim was an upright honest man and he wanted that reputation to be granted by Allah. This is the son who said this is your prestige Your Honor, it is based upon your civil Our Prophet system is commanded in the Quran level number two so number one again the sun here the second level in the Quran. Again our

00:13:05 --> 00:13:50

Prophet system is commanded will corrupt be either hidden the Moodle harasser can reach Nemo kraja su se ya rasool Allah make dua to Allah, O Allah grant me in and out that is always upon civil Maharaja and mood Hello, wherever I go ya allah wherever I sit and stand ya allah wherever my presence is your Allah make the beginning and the end of it upon what upon suit. So we have here a dua in the Quran, upon the tongue of our prophets, Allah Allahu Allah, He was telling him that whatever I do, wherever I go make it a going of honesty, a leaving of truth, my actions should always be actions of silk. The third level Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in the Quran, but she

realtyna Armano another home cada masukkan Endora Brahim give good tidings to the believers, that they shall have a footing of slavery, meaning your foot is going to be firm upon civil 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 with and this is what is mentioned in the Quran Maha masuk when you are standing a standing of 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 Allah upon the truth? You will enter that abode of Jannah and What did Allah call that abodo JANA fee MK or ideal citizen in the muddy can

00:14:34 --> 00:14:59

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 the ken Mahkota did in front of the king of kings who is all powerful. So Jana is called the abbot 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 Allah the standing of honesty, and then we will be resting in Jannah the resting of honesty, realize dear Muslims that Slidell is a perpetual state we must constantly monitor our thoughts, our our, our

00:15:45 --> 00:16:26

speech and our actions, we must try our best to never say or do something that is deceitful or dishonest or ally. And when we do so, bit by bit what is going to happen Allah says in the Quran 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 if you speak the truth in this world you might fail a little bit but Allah says on the Day of Judgment had a yo yo and for our saw the cleaner Sudoko home today is the day those

00:16:26 --> 00:16:45

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 him through the Quran. And May He make us of those who is versus the understand and applies halal and haram throughout our lifespan. I ask Allah's forgiveness you as well ask him for his the food and the ramen.

00:16:57 --> 00:17:03

Alhamdulillah helwa hadn't had a summit Aladdin Amelia Dwolla. Mueller, whenever you call local, one

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

of the most simple and beautiful stories of the syrup that demonstrates what happens when you are truthful is the story of gab ibn Malik. And what happened in the incident 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 Syrah, one of the Sahaba had the opportunity to give a false lie in front of the prophets, Allah Allahu Allah, he was selling them. And if he did, so he thought he could be saved from a type of worldly punishment, but his conscience ALLAH blessed him and he said, No, I'm going to tell the truth. And he told the truth that yeah, rasool Allah, I was too lazy to go to to book. I have no excuse. That was the thing. Some

00:17:44 --> 00:18:22

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, Ben 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 prophets of some boycotted me my own relatives and family, his wife was told to leave him, but he remained firm. He was tempted by the emperor of Rome, he wrote him a letter and he said, we heard

00:18:22 --> 00:19:01

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 Surah, Tober, where Allah, Allah totally then a holy fool, 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 azza wa jal says because they were honest and truthful, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has forgiven them. And so Allah revealed the

00:19:01 --> 00:19:42

forgiveness of God in the Quran, and Cobden Surya, rasool Allah, 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 how to soothe Allah, that being honest and truthful will always allow us to be successful. So I promise you your Rasool Allah that as long as I live, I will try my best to never utter one falsehood. And gab narrated this hadith many, many years later. And he said, Allah tested me many times, but I have inshallah lived up to that promise. That's the reality of the

00:19:42 --> 00:20:00

amount of the Sahaba we should learn from that lesson. Dear Muslims, be honest, be truthful, and be with those who are righteous and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada will write you amongst the righteous Allahumma in NIDA and for aminu, Allahu Allah that if you had to meet them at the law firm with a hand Manila for Raja while I then Allah Allah
