The beginning missing part,
A boy came to the Prophet and asked him, “I want to fornicate” …….
Got to beat on the man. How dare you speak to Mohammed salallahu alayhi wasallam in no uncertain fashion, asking, you know, for something like this, the process of them said, Stop, let him speak his heart. He was not rebuked. He was not scolded. But then the process of them said, Would you like something like this to happen to your daughter, to your mother, or your aunt or your sister? And the man kept saying, No, no, no, no. So I said, people are like that. So in other words, he said, Love for other people that would you love for yourself. There also it was narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we all know the Hadees when he said, all young people, He who is able
to get married, let them get married. Do you know the story behind that Hobbes said that even our boss said, you know, the young bachelor companions of the past are seldom, their club was the method. They used to hang around domestic. So one day, all young men are interested. And it sounded like they were talking about that subject, you know, they were talking about, you know, being young woman, they were talking about the whole issue of, you know, the passion, the physical passion that is in them. And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam walked in, he looked into their faces, and he noticed that this is what they were talking about. So what does he do? How dare you talk
about something like this, he smiled, and then what he said, all young men, if you can afford getting married, young men get married, he did not, he did not rebuke them for having the feelings, he was telling them where to put the feelings. This is the beauty of the teachings of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam how these things are elevated, and the prophets Allah would address it. In another Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say
that not any of you be like a beast, he beats his wife during the day, and then expects to sleep with her at night. That's what the processors have said. So now, what we've taught here is that subjugate your passion, make sure that you put your passion in the proper and the proper channels. It is not wrong to love but make sure that you love the right people. It is not wrong to hate, as long as that you are waiting for the right reason, the right people, it is not wrong to be angry, as long as it is for the right reason, what we said earlier, it is about emotional wisdom. In the Quran. People are four kinds, you know, when it comes to this emotional wisdom, some of them are
very quick to anger, and almost impossible to please back again, you know, these kind of people, anything you say to them, they get angry. And then if you go and you say you are sorry, get down on your knees and beg, they will not say that. These are the worst kind of people. And then there are those who are very quick to anger and also very quick to come back and they're okay. And there are those who are not quick to anger. But when they're angry, it's also very difficult to get them pleased back. Again, these are not very okay. The best are those who are not easily angered. And when they are angered, it's easy also to make them happy again. So the idea again is subjugation of
passion, making sure that you've got this emotional wisdom that is in you. So Allah subhanaw taala tells Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was here. But did you know that for any movement to be a beneficial one, for any movement, to have its fruits, you must have these conditions, you must have these conditions at all the time and that is why our beloved brother, Malcolm X, Hajj Malik el Shabazz will Allah bless his soul, who would be addressing the African Americans in the US. And then he had a formula. And this is what he would say to them. He would say, in order for us to win out freedom, we must do three things. He would say, number one, wake up. Number two, clean up. Number
three, stand up, wake up, clean up, stand up. If you're not clean, you cannot stand
if you're not clean, and all you do is you are a drug addict, or you are an alcoholic, or you have some sort of advice that is in you. You are not fit, to make a difference. So he said if you want to be part of this, you've got to clean up. You cannot be asking for your freedom, yet you are a slave of your own passion.
You cannot say that I want to be intellectually respected yet you are an alcoholic and every time you drink, you are giving your intellect. say he would say you want your freedom. You must wake up, clean up and stand up and ensure this is what Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thought, clean your heart bridges, you know, purchase vices, you know, Muslim, that's not the vetting to you. You got to clean this stay away from it. And that is why the highest definition that was ever
Given about righteousness righteousness was about about what it had to do with this form of Islam, a man by the name of rabida. on there, he said that he wanted to ask the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the concept of righteousness and the concept of sin. So he said that you know what inshallah, tomorrow morning, when I go to the masjid, I am going to ask the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam, about this topic, he gets up in the morning goes to the mystic, but the message was already full. And there is no way that he can get to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam easily. So he starts pushing people out of his way. And people are telling him that you came in late sit
down, and he said, No, I want to talk to my house alum. And the process of them saw him and he is smiling. He gets him and he said, before he asked the process of them said, if you wish, I can answer your question before you ask it. And if you wish, you can ask your question and then I will answer it for you. Maybe there was a big smile on his face. He said, problem Allah, you answer the question before I ask it. So the process of love said, You came here to ask me about righteousness. And you came here to ask me about sin, said indeed that it was what I came for Allah. And then wasallam said, righteousness is good character. And sin is that which you have doubts in your heart
about and you are afraid that it may be exposed to people. See, what the prophet SAW Selim is telling us is that you be your own policeman, you know, you are afraid you've got doubts in your heart. And at the same time, you are afraid that it may get exposed to other people. Now, the way people are bought in movements is like this. They have a very bad expression. In the US, they said, you know, someone is giving them a hard time. And someone you know, when someone's giving you a hard time they say well, what can we do to him? What can we offer them and they say Well, two things work, either a hook or a crook, give them one of these things. That is why they say Subhanallah
people who are in any movement and they are bought because of their passion, then that is when things collapse. But then for us Muslims, that is not possible. It is not possible because again as Muslims, we have got this concept of war which is something that the Quran speaks on Allah. So now we see the Quran tells us about this whole issue of subjugation of our passion. Make sure that you are always in check with your passion. And always make sure that you are in check with your heart.
