Allah

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

says

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

in chapter number 5 or number 90.

00:00:08--> 00:00:10

Oh you who believe in

00:00:11--> 00:00:13

most certainly intoxicating and gambling. While

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

Islam dedication of stones, divination of arrows,

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

Abstain from this handiwork that you may prosper.

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

You Allah

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

saying.

00:00:27--> 00:00:28

That alcohol,

00:00:28--> 00:00:29

gambling,

00:00:29--> 00:00:32

dedication of stones, fortune telling. All these are

00:00:32--> 00:00:34

sent in handiwork. Absent from it that you

00:00:34--> 00:00:35

may prosper.

00:00:35--> 00:00:36

All these things,

00:00:37--> 00:00:39

it disrupts the universal brotherhood.

00:00:39--> 00:00:40

Alcohol,

00:00:40--> 00:00:43

gambling, fortune telling, dedication of stones.

00:00:44--> 00:00:46

If you stay away from all these

00:00:46--> 00:00:47

evil acts,

00:00:48--> 00:00:50

which are signs of the devil, it will

00:00:50--> 00:00:51

increase the universal

00:00:52--> 00:00:54

Allah says in Surah Isra chapter number 17

00:00:54--> 00:00:57

verse number 32. Come not close to adultery,

00:00:58--> 00:00:59

for it is a shameful deed.

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

And evil opening other roads to evil.

00:01:04--> 00:01:06

Adultery is prohibited in Islam.

00:01:07--> 00:01:10

And Allah says in Surah Hujurat, chapter number

00:01:10--> 00:01:13

49, verse number 11 and 12. Allah says,

00:01:13--> 00:01:15

let not one group of men

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

laugh at the other.

00:01:17--> 00:01:19

You may never know that the latter may

00:01:19--> 00:01:20

be better than the former.

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

Let not one group of women

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

laugh at the other. You may never know

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

the latter may be better than the former.

00:01:28--> 00:01:32

Do not call each other with offensive nicknames.

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

Do not spy on one another.

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

Do not backbite.

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

Are you ready to eat the meat of

00:01:38--> 00:01:39

your dead brother?

00:01:40--> 00:01:43

Here, Allah says that if you backbite, if

00:01:43--> 00:01:45

you speak against someone behind his back, it

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

is as though you're eating the meat of

00:01:47--> 00:01:48

your dead brother.

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

Eating the meat of human being is haram,

00:01:51--> 00:01:55

but eating dead meat is double haram. Even

00:01:55--> 00:01:55

the cannibals,

00:01:56--> 00:01:58

they do not eat the meat of their

00:01:58--> 00:01:59

own brothers.

00:01:59--> 00:02:01

So your Allah says that if you backbite,

00:02:01--> 00:02:03

it is as though you are eating the

00:02:03--> 00:02:05

meat of a dead brother. And Allah says

00:02:05--> 00:02:08

in chapter number 104 verse number 1.

00:02:09--> 00:02:12

Woe to every kind of scandal, manga and

00:02:12--> 00:02:12

backbiter.

00:02:13--> 00:02:15

These are guidelines given in the Quran

00:02:16--> 00:02:17

to promote universal brotherhood.

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

But besides talking about universal brotherhood,

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

Islam

00:02:22--> 00:02:24

says, you should exhibit

00:02:25--> 00:02:26

universal brotherhood minimum

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

5 times

00:02:28--> 00:02:29

everyday

00:02:29--> 00:02:31

in your practical life.

00:02:32--> 00:02:33

I'm talking about the 2nd pillar of Islam

00:02:33--> 00:02:34

that is salah.

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

When we offer salah,

00:02:37--> 00:02:40

we practically demonstrate universal brotherhood

00:02:40--> 00:02:43

5 times a day. Our beloved prophet Muhammad

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

said.

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

It's mentioned in Sahih Bukhari,

00:02:45--> 00:02:47

volume number 1. In the book of Adhan,

00:02:47--> 00:02:50

chapter number 75, hadith number 692.

00:02:51--> 00:02:54

Where, Hadith Anas, Middle Arab Buddhism said, that

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

when we stood for salah,

00:02:56--> 00:02:57

the shoulder of the companions

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

tied the shoulder of the other companion. And

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

a feet tied the feet of the companion.

00:03:02--> 00:03:04

The beloved prophet, the prophet Muhammadu alaihi wasalam

00:03:04--> 00:03:06

said. It's mentioned,

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

boy number 1, in the book of salah,

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

chapter number 245, hadith number 666.

00:03:12--> 00:03:13

That the prophet,

00:03:13--> 00:03:15

before starting salah, he said,

00:03:15--> 00:03:17

that close in your gaps.

00:03:17--> 00:03:20

Stand shoulder to shoulder, and do not leave

00:03:20--> 00:03:21

any gap

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

for the satan.

00:03:23--> 00:03:26

So when we offer salah, it is compulsory

00:03:26--> 00:03:28

that the Muslim, we should stand shoulder to

00:03:28--> 00:03:29

shoulder

00:03:29--> 00:03:30

and feet to feet.

00:03:31--> 00:03:33

Irrespective whether you're rich or poor, whether a

00:03:33--> 00:03:35

king or a popper. When you stand for

00:03:35--> 00:03:38

salah, you stand shoulder to shoulder. Irrespective whether

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

black or white, yellow or brown. When you

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

stand for salah, you stand shoulder to shoulder.

00:03:42--> 00:03:43

We Muslims

00:03:43--> 00:03:45

have to practically demonstrate

00:03:45--> 00:03:46

universal

00:03:47--> 00:03:49

minimum 5 times a

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

day. The other very good example of universal

00:03:52--> 00:03:55

betahood is the 5th pillar of Islam that

00:03:55--> 00:03:56

is Hajj.

00:03:56--> 00:03:59

The Hajj is the biggest annual gathering

00:03:59--> 00:04:02

in the world. And during Hajj,

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

nowadays,

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

about 4,000,000 people

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

come from different parts of the world. From

00:04:08--> 00:04:08

America,

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

from Canada, from UK, from Malaysia, from Indonesia,

00:04:12--> 00:04:13

from India.

00:04:14--> 00:04:15

4,000,000 people.

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

And the men, they are dressed up in

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

2 pieces

00:04:19--> 00:04:22

of unfun cloth, preferably white. You cannot differentiate

00:04:23--> 00:04:25

the person standing next to you, whether he's

00:04:25--> 00:04:27

a king or a popper. When you're in

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

Aram, the purpose of the Aram is that

00:04:29--> 00:04:30

all of them,

00:04:30--> 00:04:31

they wear the

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

same clothes,

00:04:32--> 00:04:34

2 pieces of unsown white cloth.

00:04:35--> 00:04:37

You cannot identify the person standing next to

00:04:37--> 00:04:39

you, whether he's a king or a pauper.

00:04:40--> 00:04:40

And you say

00:04:42--> 00:04:42

the

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

Here

00:04:45--> 00:04:46

I come, oh my lord. Here I come

00:04:46--> 00:04:47

at your service.

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

More than 4,000,000 people from different parts of

00:04:50--> 00:04:52

the world of different nationalities, different colors,

00:04:53--> 00:04:54

they come

00:04:55--> 00:04:57

only at the service of the Lord. That

00:04:57--> 00:04:58

example of universal brotherhood.

00:04:57--> 00:04:58

example of universal brotherhood.
