00:01:51--> 00:02:48

there is this idea in the Quran, where Allah Subhana Allah addresses mankind. It is Allah who initially created you, then it is Allah was provided for you. It is Allah that will cause you to die. It is Allah that will raise you again. Or any of those who ascribe divinity to are they capable of doing of any of this limitless Glory be to Allah subhanho wa Taala See, that is the Quran says that you must accept this. Otherwise something else is going to happen. And immediately the verse that comes after it is verhaal fossa do feel very well Buhari Bhima Aden, agenus Karanja call Rob Anhu Massa back with

00:02:49--> 00:02:56

the horrid facade of real burial Buhari, be Marcus habit ad NurseLine with your common bow, the levy, Amelie.

00:02:57--> 00:03:49

Then the Quran says the minute people become oblivious of what we just stated, acknowledging that Allah alone is the Creator. Allah alone is the provider. Allah alone is the one that deals death and gives life and no one can do this but Allah the minute you become oblivious of this, the Quran says that what is going to follow are the natural consequences. verhaal fossa do feel very well. Corruption has appeared on land as well as on sea be meccsa but aid in us because of what people's hands have earned, meaning that because of humans behavior, our behavior ended up making corruption on land and in see a fear or dominate.

00:03:51--> 00:03:58

And just one look around, especially nowadays, our world is becoming very scary.

00:04:00--> 00:04:02

rivers have dried up

00:04:03--> 00:04:10

talking about rivers that people would use a big boat to cross now they can walk in

00:04:12--> 00:04:28

rivers that used to have big ships used as arteries to move goods, they can no longer do that. What happened? Rivers are drying up dry and river Danube in China, rivers are drying up

00:04:30--> 00:05:00

So this type of corruption has appeared on land as well as see what happens that that it is because of what people have done. And subhanAllah the tendency is nature on its own knows how to take care

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

of itself because Allah subhanaw taala has taught it created it that way.

00:05:06--> 00:05:15

It is when man gets involved. To be more specific. It is when a greedy man gets involved, that is when you see the corruption taking place.

00:05:16--> 00:05:27

And remember for us believers, the Quran is a very environment friendly book, Quince bolometer malefic Gita Billa the Quran so there will be

00:05:28--> 00:06:03

00:08:02--> 00:08:30

somebody decided to compare holy scriptures, people that deemed to be these books to be religious books. You wanted to see which book is most environment friendly. He reads the Bible, which the Quran reads other books. And at the very end of the article, what does he say? He said, after reading all these books, it seems like the Quran is the greener of all books.

00:08:31--> 00:08:35

In what happened. Quran is a very environment friendly book.

00:08:36--> 00:08:44

In the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala tell Ceman wala to see do feel or be bad or Islam

00:08:46--> 00:08:52

do not cause corruption on earth, after Allah subhanaw taala has set it right.

00:08:53--> 00:09:19

Don't do that. Specially believers, believers can never do harm to the environment. Because there is a clear direct commandment from Allah Subhana Allah you know every time we start the hobo we say clay will kala make a tabula the best of speech is a book of Allah and then we immediately pray and say your Allah make us amongst those who listened to the best of speech and follow its commandments.

00:09:20--> 00:09:34

Here comes a commandments lair to see to fill out the bad that is Lucha do not cause corruption on earth, after Allah subhanho wa Taala has set it right.

00:09:36--> 00:09:43

Our job our mission, what we are permitted to do is enjoy but don't destroy

00:09:44--> 00:09:52

us, but do not abuse. The minute you do this, there are going to be consequences.

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

In the Hadith, the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passing by Solomon of your course. While he's making wudu here

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

was washing getting ready for Salah.

00:10:02--> 00:10:37

So the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam looked at him and he said it's rough when you're sad that you're being wasteful or sad, and sad, you know, said prophet of Allah, I thought although it's rough, while making wudu while getting ready for Salah washing making a solution he said that can I really bass be wasteful while doing so for Colin W sallallahu alayhi wa sallam na en la to serif. wallow Kunta Isla Nadine jarrin. He said Do not be wasteful with water. Even if it be you are standing by a running river.

00:10:38--> 00:11:24

I said what difference does it make? I am using the water and the water is going back into the river itself. I'm just washing in the river. What do you mean you can be extravagant? See, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying, do not get into that habit. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say and you know sometimes we hear the teachings of the Prophet of Allah and sometimes you know you, it is the prophet Allah is this being nice. Give you an example. In the Hadith the Prophet of Allah said Latin Allah. Many differ they say and V Hill Roshan Zara. May the curse of Allah be on the one who uses a living been as a target for the sake of entertainment? You just

00:11:24--> 00:11:36

shoot? Why are you shooting? You know, just learning how to shoot and fire. You're killing an animal needlessly uselessly. The Prophet of Allah said curse are the people who do this

00:11:37--> 00:11:42

1958 to 1961 one of the worst

00:11:44--> 00:11:48

humanitarian catastrophes happened in China.

00:11:49--> 00:12:14

Partly it was caused by a very elegant man, Mao. And he decided that he was waging war, told back then all 650 million Chinese people that we must get rid of the enemy, who's the enemy? Said rats, mosquitoes, flies, on the sparrows out of fear.

00:12:15--> 00:12:33

And somebody said, why would you put the sparrows with the rats and the flies and why mosquitoes? Why would you do that? So that somebody has concluded that this is small bird consumes about four kilograms of actual hubbub of

00:12:34--> 00:13:16

grain. Is it that this small bird consumes about four kilograms a year? And said that's a lot. So what does he say? Tells All 650 million Chinese people. Our enemy now is the sparrow we must get rid of the sparrows, schoolchildren, soldiers, kids waving flags all over the place. In one of these stories, it said that they were destroying the nest of these birds. The Polish embassy refused, and they surrounded the embassy playing the drums forcing the people in the embassy to destroy the nest of these sparrows.

00:13:18--> 00:13:21

Numbers are that they killed millions of them.

00:13:23--> 00:13:25

Later on, it was found out

00:13:26--> 00:13:47

that this is sparrows. They dissected them said most of what they found inside them was not actually grains. But it was a lot of insects. What happened afterwards is the population of locusts and grasshoppers grew so much, they destroyed the vegetation.

00:13:49--> 00:14:09

That destroyed the vegetation. See, leave nature alone. Nature knows how to take care of itself. You mess up with nature. As a consequence, this is what you get. In fact, the man said we must make the mountains bow and we must make the rivers yield.

00:14:10--> 00:14:17

That is not our relationship with nature. As believers, the point is not to make the mountains bow.

00:14:18--> 00:14:59

In fact, in this very verse, Allah subhanaw taala says well Allah He LM Tara and Allah use a big hula hula Moon this summer what you will earn what are your rows off? Column Kadalai masala who would this be? Who were Allahu Alleman Brahma if I don't? Well Allah human customer what you will ARB? What Illa Hill masu and I'm Tara and Allah, use a bigger home and sistema what you will do you not see that all sing the praises of Allah subhanaw taala whoever is in heavens and whoever is on earth, and the birds while spreading their wings, our everything around us

00:15:00--> 00:15:16

As part of the creation of Allah subhanaw taala. The point is not to make it bow down to us, the point is not oh we use what Allah subhanaw taala has created for us. Remember, we use, we don't abuse, we enjoy, we do not destroy.

00:15:18--> 00:15:31

Not only that, but then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again urges believers, you know, you do good to the environment, and you do not do harm to the environment. In the Hadith we are taught, the Prophet of Allah says

00:15:33--> 00:16:26

Menza rasaan. Allah says arson, first of all, levy in turn, oh, Akhil I mean, who who you want for who were the who saw the salah Allah rasool Allah. So in the Hadith the Prophet of Allah said, Whosoever plants a tree, be it big, beat a small, and as a result, humans either sit under its shade, or animals each of its fruits, it is considered for them to be an act of charity, being good to the environment. Similarly, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says, Whosoever cuts down a tree, needlessly for no good reason said such people are cursed by Allah subhanaw taala be good to the environment. There are consequences for misusing and abusing the planet that we are the planet

00:16:26--> 00:17:09

that we are in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam even taught that part of the responsibilities of a believer is that you'll be good to animals. This man had a donkey and just to differentiate it from other donkeys, that he put a mark on the face of the donkey. And the way that the man has done it is that it was branding meaning that you use you use a hot iron to do so. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looked at it and he said, plan Allahu Akbar, Allahu Allah, what is this? And the man said prophet of Allah, I just wanted to distinguish it from my other animals. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah which He then do you put that on the face of the

00:17:09--> 00:17:10


00:17:11--> 00:17:49

And I know that a lot of waters are a lot of us are very passionate about halal and xebia. And we think that halal and xebia is just about the very final process and that is how do you kill the animal? That is important, but that is not the only requirement to make halal food, halal food. The prophets Allahu alayhi wa sallam in the Hadith said, nah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and acknowledge Allah Allah, the Prophet of Allah forbade the eating of an animal that was that was fed food that was not appropriate for it.

00:17:50--> 00:18:11

So you can consume that animal or have Allahi or Morona, Yeoman, and less for today's pass by for a year round. Whoa, wait. riru is that you got to feed its natural food until you know what pigmentation the coloration changes until the smell the odor of the animal changes. Now it's halal food.

00:18:14--> 00:19:05

And we think that halal food is just about the way that you slaughter the animal. It also has to do with the way that you raise that animal, the way that you treat that animal. Nature is beautiful Subhan Allah, Odin wo sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in dunya Hill what on hollyrock What in Allah Musa Khalifa confy her for Yun hora que Fatima Lu is that this role? Hello, it is delightful, harder, it is green. And they say that because we the way that we perceive Joy mostly for us humans is the census of eyes what we see and what we are able to taste. Some things are nice to touch and so on. But the prophet of Allah is pointing out two things we experience most joy by what we see and what

00:19:05--> 00:19:32

we are able to taste in dunya hell what on hollyrock This world is beautiful, it's delightful, it's tasty, and nice to look at. We're in Allah Musa Khalifa configure, and it is Allah subhanaw taala who is temporarly putting you in charge for your Laura Kay for Cameroon. And then Allah will carefully observe how well you do.

00:19:34--> 00:19:59

That's a nice way. No one we go out the tree everything out there, you know, imagine that Subhanallah when we see when we see a tree we say, praising Allah subhanaw taala. So you know, that's praising Allah subhanaw taala meaning that I want my presence, not just to be good for the people around me, my presence. I also want it to be good for the environment that is around me.

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

May Allah subhanaw taala increases in understanding. May Allah Subhana Allah makers of the believers who are friendly to the environment are blossoming, Apolo probably harder or softer Allah Khalifa looking for stuff through holding the hula hula for.

00:20:18--> 00:20:23

Hamdu lillahi Wa Kafa salat wa salam ala Rasulillah Mustafa our allotment the

00:20:24--> 00:21:11

prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam points out that there are two ways that we can ruin our environment, either by the decay that we cause to the immediate material environment around us are sometimes also he said to the moral decay that we also may become guilty of it. In the Hadith the Prophet of Allah addressing one of his companions of Allah Muhammad, he said, comes to his fallen into the raccoon natural muhajir income so his fallen into Starlin into the raccoon natural muhajir in him so his fallen into the raccoon or onto the raccoon, he said, Oh, migrants, he said, speaking to the Mahajan. One time he was talking to them. He said there are five practices five traits if

00:21:11--> 00:21:22

they ever appeared during the during your time, and I asked Allah subhanaw taala that they do not appear during the during your time, there going to be consequences.

00:21:23--> 00:21:26

Ma Al Anon nasopharyngeal

et la hora de will Umrah, dual LGR Latina autoconfig us laughing him. He said that whenever immorality becomes manifest amongst people.

00:21:39--> 00:22:17

He said that Allah then said that there will be tested by ailments and diseases that their predecessors have not seen or heard of. See, we human beings have always been guilty of making poor choices being immoral. What the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is pointing out to though is when people publicly carried out when it becomes manifest, when people lose any sense of shame, that at that point, Allah subhanaw taala the consequences are such that they're going to be ailments or diseases that you have not seen before.

00:22:19--> 00:22:20


00:22:21--> 00:23:05

coming up now 98% of the people who get it are people who engage in homosexuality. Are you just being homophobic right now? See, when you point these things out, you're just preaching hate him stating facts will say in fact, this is what happens when people engage in certain type of behavior that Allah subhanaw taala does not like it definitely impacts our spiritual health. And chances are it can also impact our physical health. We're not holding this against people whosoever has monkey pox melas Had Allah give them a speedy recovery or have been Alamy Wallahi I sincerely pray for them. Wallahi May Allah give them a full and speedy recovery?

00:23:06--> 00:23:25

Not going to change the fact that look, there are certain behaviors. If you engage in, they're going to be consequences. Drink alcohol, there are going to be consequences to your liver. do this do that whenever Allah Subhana Allah says certain practice you ought not to do

00:23:26--> 00:23:39

it will impact you potentially it will also impact the environment around you. Then the power of Allah speaks, ma'am and Appelman zakat, Amani him in Lao ammonia Ultra minister, while

00:23:40--> 00:24:28

lamium Powell said anytime people refuse to give their Resaca for the ones who have to not want to share with the have nots, for those who are fortunate, not sharing with those who are less fortunate, for those who are blessed, not wanting to bless others said, say that Allah subhanaw taala is going to cause rain to cease. Then he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and had it been for the cattles, Allah would not send candles to these people. Unfortunately, sometimes, you know these catastrophes that we see around us. A lot of people suffer because of this example that we see nowadays are our brothers and sisters in Pakistan, and our brothers and sisters in Sudan. May Allah

00:24:28--> 00:25:00

subhanaw taala ease their pain Europa ALEMI you talking about 1/3 of the country of Pakistan is underwater at this point. One out of every seven Pakistanis is impacted by what just took place. Numbers are anywhere between 35 to 45 million people are homeless at this point. While I may Allah Subhana Allah ease their pain may Allah ease their pain Dr. Pillai Lamine people are talking about what is causing this is the melting of the outside of the ark.

00:25:00--> 00:25:14

Tech said that most glass years are found in Pakistan. And the melting of it due to global warming is potentially also contributing to this. What we are doing to the environment is impacting people around us.

00:25:15--> 00:25:24

And that part when you see this, we don't even have to go far away. Our neighbors in Mississippi, Jackson, Mississippi, people can't drink the water.

00:25:25--> 00:25:36

You know what is really sad. And the irony in this is that you're surrounded by water. But the water that you are surrounded by, is not good to drink.

00:25:37--> 00:26:14

Well, Allah, he's such an ironing. You can't drink that. told the story before, after Katrina, an interview of just interviewing people down this African American man and they said, What do you want? Now this is somebody that lost their place in Louisiana, said, Man right now he said, I just want a clean glass of water. I want to take a shower, and I want a bed to sleep on. Because at that point, all the needs were just really summarized in this very simple. I want a clean glass of water, a bed to sleep on. I want to take a shower.

00:26:15--> 00:26:39

Because see, sometimes these people remind us how blessed we are. May Allah continue to bless us, Europa, I mean, I mean, Allah bless those who do not have what we have Europa Island, because remember that no good is good. If it's only good for us, the goodness of goods, the best of goods, or shared goods. These are the goodest of goods, shared goods.

00:26:40--> 00:27:29

What do we want? Please remember, as believers, deal with the environment, with respect, not because people are watching, not because you may save money. That may be you know, part of the consequence of the perks that we get. But because we have been told by Allah, that our job is to not ruin this environment. Make it a habit at home. We are a family that does not waste. We are a family that recycles. We are a family that we do our fair share. Who does that mean that if we don't waste water, it's going to solve the problem? No. But remember, Allah does not ask us for the results. Allah asks for. Did you do your part? Did you do your part? This man is walking by the ocean, and

00:27:29--> 00:27:49

the waves of just kicking out starfish, a small starfish. So he would take it and he would throw it back in the ocean. And he would just take as many as he can and just throw them back in the ocean. Somebody's watching him. He said, What are you doing? He said, I'm trying to save the starfish. That like the entire beach is full of starfish. I said, look around, he said,

00:27:50--> 00:27:58

Do you think that what you're doing is going to make a difference. And the man took a starfish and he said I can make a difference to this one and he threw it back in

00:27:59--> 00:28:16

May not be able to solve the problem. But do your part. Do your part. Unless insha Allah have a different relationship with the creation of Allah subhanaw taala. Our brothers and sisters in Pakistan are in a dire need.

00:28:17--> 00:28:41

You know, you don't see a lot of news about Pakistan. You know, in Muslim media, you see it. Pakistanis are not white. They're not Europeans. They're not blondes. They're not blue eyed. They're not Ukrainians. You hear a lot about what's happening in these places. You hear a lot about what's going on in Italy and people losing this and in Spain and all the fires that are taking place.

00:28:43--> 00:29:21

But it is up to us insha Allah to see into it, that our brothers and sisters get the help Gela immediately right after the Salah for three minutes in sha Allah, we are going to attempt to raise at least $50,000 for our brothers and sisters in Pakistan.
