to guide us all praises due to a law was revealed the scripture unto His servant and has made no crookedness there in all praises due to a law the Lord of all the worlds and hamdulillah

00:02:23--> 00:02:38

Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed us with the great gift of brotherhood. And the magnitude of this gift cannot be adequately expressed in that it is a gift directly from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

So law reminds us

00:02:43--> 00:02:47

continuing one of the verses from the introductory hood with alhaja

00:02:51--> 00:03:00

with curonian that Allahu Allah come with come to nada en la casa de Nino pulu b come for us baton venia met e aquarena.

00:03:01--> 00:03:14

So in this passage, Allah subhana wa Taala mentions twice the great great blessing of brotherhood. So this is the emphasize and sisterhood.

00:03:15--> 00:03:51

This is the emphasize the magnitude of the blessing the fact that the blessing is mentioned twice with guru Nana to La Jolla alikum. Remember the blessing of Allah upon his quantum Ida lf a dino Palooza come for us by Tom Binney and met he a whiner how you were enemies and he puts sociability between your hearts and you became by his blessing for us baton beanie and that he acquired. So this is a great, great you became by his blessing. Brothers and sisters.

00:03:53--> 00:03:54

Never forget this.

00:03:55--> 00:04:35

Dear brothers and sisters, the magnitude of this blessing in that the blessing is so great. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has provided us the foundations and the details as to how to protect and preserve this blessing. Time doesn't allow us to go into the details of that. So we'll mention a few of the foundations, which are found in the following Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and ebihara Terra De La Hoya and call Kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that has to do with Latin Niger Shu

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

Last Mile rot kulu has been has been remain a sharp and Kira Muslim, Muslim he Island Muslim he haraam demo who and then who ever do so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as reported by Abby Herrera. mela be pleased with them. He said do not envy one another and do not raise the prices against each other in order to hurt each other or to hurt the buyer or the seller, but generally don't conspire against each other. Do not hate one another. Do not turn your backs to one another and do not enter into a transaction or marriage proposal after your brother has already entered into it. Be you servants of a law brothers. The Muslim is the brother of his fellow Muslim and for the

00:05:55--> 00:06:11

sisters read sisters when you hear that the Muslim is the brother of his fellow Muslim, He neither oppresses him, nor does he abandon or forsake Him, nor does he lie to him, nor does he look down on him or despise him.

00:06:13--> 00:06:28

piety is here. And he pointed to his chest three times repeating it piety is here, piety is here, piety is here, and he pointed to his chest three times meaning his heart. Every Muslim has a sanctity

00:06:29--> 00:06:52

in relation to their fellow Muslim concerning their life, their property and their honor, they're all sanctified. In other words, they're not to be violated to violate them as like eating swine or pork or drinking alcohol. Who knows Muslim Island Muslim haraam?

00:06:54--> 00:06:55

demo one l Hu l do.

00:06:57--> 00:07:34

So the Prophet The first thing you mentioned is significant because this is one of the greatest things that we can do to each other. That has to do do not envy one another. Envy is a great crime of shaytaan it blease he envied Adam alayhis salaam because Adam had honored or rather Allah subhanho wa Taala honored Adam honored him by having the angels prostrate him prostration of this sagitta to Sharif Wallace said you said hello to a bad a prostration of honor and not a prostration of worship.

00:07:36--> 00:07:46

And at least envy that he thought he created Adam, with his two hands Malak to be idea

00:07:48--> 00:07:48

as the Virgin

00:07:50--> 00:07:53

and of course his two hands on these things ladies can be cliche,

00:07:54--> 00:08:09

was Samuel bossier. So don't imagine this when I say his two hands, two hands feeding to His Majesty his incomparable majesty, his incomparable glory, his incomparable essence.

00:08:11--> 00:08:12

But that's an honor.

00:08:14--> 00:08:22

That was given to Adam, you taught Adam the names of all things were Unlimited, Adam, as Adam and as Matt akula.

00:08:23--> 00:08:28

You taught Adam the names of all things another honor for Adam alayhis salam.

00:08:31--> 00:08:47

He honored Adam in many ways, and it bleeds envied that. And through his envy, he did everything in his power. He honored Adam by blessing him to dwell in gender

00:08:49--> 00:08:51

in his vicinity,

00:08:54--> 00:08:59

and envy that so at least did everything in his power out of his jealousy.

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

And what is the foundation of envy? The one who envies the other thinks he or she is better than them.

00:09:10--> 00:09:23

He doesn't deserve that car. I'm better than him. He doesn't deserve a beautiful wife like that. I'm more handsome than him. She should have fallen for me. She doesn't deserve a husband like that.

00:09:26--> 00:09:59

I'm better and so what did he say when I lost Savannah Watada? Question Jimin and I Menaka ela test today? Amar took Kala and Akira Minho. laquinimod Nair in McCulloch to a woman team. Why didn't you prostrate when I ordered you to do so? it please. He said I'm better than him. You created me from fire while you created him from clay. black clay, by the way, according to the dominant opinion, some mentioned different colors, but

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

The majority and the strongest opinion it was black clay.

00:10:06--> 00:10:13

So Adam said, at least he said I'm better. And the jealous one says I'm better I deserved that blessing.

00:10:15--> 00:10:35

And so our messenger and this erodes and destroys our brotherhood and our sisterhood. So our loss are the Messenger of Allah is reminding us not to has to do or commending us that has to do don't envy one another. He described envy as the disease of the nations.

00:10:36--> 00:10:41

That bat a column. They're all mmm, mmm and publikum.

00:10:42--> 00:10:58

The disease of the nations that preceded you will creep up on you. Why is it called the disease of the nation because envy destroys nations. As we said, envy is the desire to have a blessing was bestowed upon his servant taken away.

00:10:59--> 00:11:06

That's what envy is, is that eroded to his erlotinib Amati an AMA Holla Holla Abdi

00:11:07--> 00:11:18

have a blessing Allah has bestowed upon his servant taken away was the consequence of that a lot of Tyler reminds us in court and with Rob Buccola insha Allah as

00:11:19--> 00:11:56

well and referred to in Debbie lusha deed, and when your Lord command proclaimed with the Fnl robocon if you give thanks for my blessings, I will increase you on those blessings, then shall come to that as he did not come. And if you reject those blessings, and envy is the very essence of rejection of blessings. And neither be lasha deed, you should know that my punishment is severe. So when we look at what's happening in some of our countries, how they're being torn, and ripped apart,

00:11:57--> 00:12:47

don't immediately look at the external cause. Don't look at the Zionists don't look at American foreign policy, those have a role to play. But understand the Zionist America, they're all means as bad that Allah has created to implement his will and his creation. And we know many of our countries are filled with envy. People seek protection from the aim of the HA suit and put it over their homes. They bring the new furniture into the homes at night so their neighbors will see it and become jealous. We notice a fact. And so what does the law say? He says, if you are reject my blessings, and envy is a rejection of the blessing we should you should know my punishment is

00:12:47--> 00:13:22

severe. So maybe these means have been unleashed by a law against us because of what we ourselves are doing. So it behooves us to get the envy out of our lives out of our communities. And to do the opposite, was the opposite. The full moon maharlika pray for an increase in the blessing that the servant has pray that Allah gives them more you end with a wife pray that Allah gives him a more beautiful wife or makes the wife he has more beautiful

00:13:24--> 00:13:25

sisters get mad at me.

00:13:28--> 00:13:38

Sister you envy the sisters house pray that Allah gives you a bigger house. He gives you a nicer gardens. you envy the car praise he gets a better car.

00:13:39--> 00:13:45

gets another car pray for an increase and then you'll be increased.

00:13:48--> 00:14:01

That has to do so complete the Hadith that de la con their own amendment kubla Khan. alpbach de Waal has said, hatred and jealousy

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

walpack da oh here he and Halle.

I will add Well, I do leukomalacia and either file to move Who? tab to F Xu Salama ballyknocken.

00:14:27--> 00:14:35

So the Hadith goes on to say and the disease of the nations who preceded you will creep up on you.

00:14:38--> 00:14:39

hatred and jealousy.

00:14:40--> 00:14:48

As for hatred, it's a shaver. It's a razor, but it cuts off religion, not hair.

00:14:49--> 00:14:51

It cuts off religion, not hair.

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

It's a razor. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam these two diseases. In the beginning of this Hadith, he warns us again

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

This letter has to do with a teenager shoe when at about

00:15:04--> 00:15:06

about Darwin has said

00:15:07--> 00:15:14

while back though he'll Hanukkah Hanukkah to de la Hanukkah sharp is shaves religion,

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

and it doesn't shave hair. This particular razor.

00:15:20--> 00:15:42

In other words, we can have all of the signs of overt religiosity. We can pray we can Fast Pass a pass, I can go to Hajj, attend every single taraweeh and Ramadan combat for pmln. We can do it all. But if our hearts are filled with hatred,

00:15:43--> 00:15:50

then that those those religious have to be shaved off from us, like the razor shaves out shaves our hair off.

00:15:53--> 00:15:58

What about the heel, Hanukkah, Hanukkah to Dean

00:15:59--> 00:16:03

who shave those acts off like a razor shaves off hair.

00:16:06--> 00:16:07

And we see the hatred.

00:16:08--> 00:16:14

This group of Muslims fighting, killing destroying that group. Why because they hate them.

00:16:17--> 00:16:52

Our community is predicated on love mutual love, not mutual hatred. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam describes this, this this community, he describes it with Terms of Endearment and love methylone not meaning feet at feet or hot feet or wet D him or Tara homie him What are two phenethyl jetset the likeness of the believers in their mutual love for one another and their mutual mercy for one another, and their mutual affection for one another is like a single body.

00:16:55--> 00:17:14

This is our community, not a community where people put up websites to slander other Muslims, Muslim slender.com and the next time you log on, you get into the chat room and you let your fingers do the walking. think twice about what our Prophet warns us against.

00:17:15--> 00:17:18

think twice about the consequences of your actions.

00:17:21--> 00:17:47

This is a community of mutual love and mutual mercy and mutual affection. And that's the foundation of our unit. Our unity and every good that has come through this room to this oma has come through the door of unity and every affliction that has a self this oma has come through the door of division. It wasn't the Crusaders, or rather the the Crusaders

00:17:48--> 00:17:56

and the Christian armies who opened the door for the destruction of Islam in andaluza.

00:17:58--> 00:18:00

It was the Muslims who opened that door

00:18:02--> 00:18:10

was a barber armors armies who overthrew the khilafah of the descendants of Abdul Rahman and doodle sia

00:18:12--> 00:18:17

and once that door was open, the Christian armies just came in and finished the job.

00:18:18--> 00:18:26

And you look at our history, every single calamity that has a sale this oma has come through the door of division.

00:18:28--> 00:18:30

And every good has come from unity.

00:18:31--> 00:18:40

And then he says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I swear by the one who holds the life of Mohammed well let enough so Mohammed and Brd

00:18:42--> 00:19:20

00:19:21--> 00:19:46

Sometimes we greet each other first before we greet we assess each other. We assess make sure they look like the right kind of Muslim. They have the right layer, do they have the right length of the agenda be or are there their parents? They have on the right colors? We assess them then based on the assessment we might give no Salaam at all we might mummery was done right?

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

No fslm abantecart assalamu Aleikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh of su Salama Bina comm you're in the mall.

00:20:00--> 00:20:07

brother or sister so happy to see you. There is another Muslim salaam aleikum, sisters, brother

00:20:14--> 00:20:37

because I'm glad to see another Muslim. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa sallam Omar haben. But more important than that is the spirit of the salon. Where does shallum come from linguistically? Salima? Yes. La Moosa Lana. Salima yes la masala man. What does that mean? It means basically, primarily to be safe

00:20:39--> 00:20:42

and to be secure, to have no defects

00:20:44--> 00:21:14

and imperfections. This is the name of Allah some of us convert I converted to Islam. One of the first pieces of Arabic we learn as As salam aleikum, they say peace upon you as Sam Aleykum so some of us are clever. Then we start learning the smell Krishna as metal la Hill hustler, the Beautiful Names of Allah All right, man All right, him and Malika could do three like what does all that mean? SLM Oh, I know that when SLM the peace?

00:21:15--> 00:22:07

No, it doesn't mean the peace. It means the one who safe from any imperfections or defects hakala that's what salami Dora Salaam Jana darussalam it means the Abode where the imperfections of the world won't exist will eat we won't pass waste in gender will burp but it won't even be a foul bird like the Ramadan Tara we have to wait the garlic for if tar it won't be it'll be a sweet burp so sweet a fragrance like the beauty we've never experienced before there'll be no waste we won't get sick and gender there's a human imperfection in this world we get sick and gender we don't get sick. In this world we die in gender we won't die Holly Dena Fie habitat. So as Dora Salaam, the abode of

00:22:08--> 00:22:13

where there is no imperfections and there are no defects that exists in the world.

00:22:14--> 00:22:26

And so when we say Salaam salaam aleikum, that peace means I won't render you defective. I won't. I won't harm you. You safe with me?

00:22:29--> 00:22:40

And so this is what it means. But then there's a specific definition given from our Prophet. So listen, this is linguistic. Then we have a transmitted definition which takes precedence

00:22:41--> 00:22:54

a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said and Muslim and send me Mel musli Moon and min desenho Yeti. The Muslim is the one the other Muslims are safe from their tongue in hand.

00:22:58--> 00:23:05

f Xu Salaam abena calm and Muslim men Saleemul Muslim Unum in the Sangha de

00:23:08--> 00:23:14

so May Allah give us tofik May Allah bless us to all those qualities we got to two of them.

00:23:16--> 00:23:17

That has to do that about

00:23:18--> 00:23:27

May Allah tala bless us to remove any envy we have for believer from our heart and human beings in general

00:23:29--> 00:23:36

will remove any hatred that we might have for another believer from our hearts.

00:23:38--> 00:23:42

If they do something we hate the action don't hate the person.

00:23:44--> 00:23:58

Because if we hate the person, and they're a believer, when they reform the actions we might not be able to bring to love them as the religion requires. methods do not mean in a fee to wet D him.

00:24:00--> 00:24:20

Though you may know how to come hotter you hit belly or he may hit Boolean FC. We might not be able to reach that prophetic station, our Prophet Scylla send them solo and he will send them he hated the actions of the people, not the people themselves. So when the people reformed the actions, he loved the people.

00:24:21--> 00:24:24

He hated the actions of Khalid Bonilla lead,

00:24:25--> 00:24:33

especially on the devil hood. He hated the actions of Abu sufian. He hated the actions of hint.

00:24:34--> 00:24:41

He hated the actions of all of these people who at one time were the most bitter enemies of Islam.

00:24:42--> 00:24:45

But when they change their actions he loved the person

00:24:49--> 00:24:52

00:26:34--> 00:26:55

but it's not meant it's not and grammar we have two types of verb of the Phil azim falou lism. A few a few little more daddy. The lesson is the intransitive verb. The action that described is confined to the subject.

00:26:56--> 00:27:01

So Hakuna phoolan someone so is handsome, that's just them.

00:27:04--> 00:27:09

It doesn't project to a subject, such as weather.

00:27:11--> 00:27:20

We had that full afternoon, foolin and hibbett. And so on. So gave someone else a gift. So they gave them something there's an object.

00:27:22--> 00:27:36

Our religion is not intransitive. It's not lasme is moved to od D. is supposed to be shared with others. It's supposed to be given to others, extend it to others.

00:27:37--> 00:28:17

And this country's calling out for Islam. A lot of Muslims are thinking they don't want Islam. Yeah, the oppressors and tyrants and mass murderers. They don't want Islam, the ones who and the racists they don't want us them. But the common people whose lives are being torn apart by opioid addiction, become in people's lives and being torn apart by alcoholism, the common people whose lives are being torn apart by the tension of the heritage of rate of a racist supremacist path and a look at past and looking for a new way you think they can't use Islam?

00:28:18--> 00:28:21

You think they wouldn't want Islam if they knew about it?

00:28:22--> 00:28:35

Or the question we should ask ourselves, why don't they know about it? Because we haven't taught them. We haven't taken it to the wealth and extended it to them work like it's Phil azim it's just for us.

00:28:36--> 00:28:38

Now this is for the world.
