this is something that we see that happens happened in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us what to do in such a situation. And not only that, we also see that living in the 21st century, we see that many of us have problems or we have rumors about us, and people believe them and at firsthand without any type of investigation on that accusation,
that a person will come to an individual and say to the individual, that such and such person said this about such and such person, straight away that person will believe that person hold opinion about the person that the thing was said about.
This in Islam itself, according to one of my teacher is, it is a sin, a sin which could you could be questioned on the Day of day Ahmed by Allah subhanho wa Taala let me read a short story to you at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam.
At the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was going to go on war against Makkah. At that time, he had told all the Sahaba do not whatsoever happens. Do not tell anybody.
Do not tell anybody that I Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is coming to war with Makkah.
No, if you look into Islam, my dear brothers, you will come to understand that if going against the command of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you will be there and then regarded as a Munna, afek
you will be regarded as a monastic.
What happens is hesitant. Heartsaver Radi Allahu Anhu.
Upon hearing that we are going to war with Mecca, all the Sahaba before I tell you the reason actually, all the Sahaba have protected the house but the wealth and everything this is one Sahaba didn't his family who lived in Makkah.
So what he done was he wrote a letter to the Quraysh. He wrote a letter to the Quraysh that were coming for war.
He sent this letter through a woman, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam now receives ye.
In this way he he is told that this woman has a letter that is going to inform the people in Makkah that you are coming for wall.
what straight away what comes to your mind? As it Hardy has done something against the Prophet sallallahu leaves his command.
Not only that, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for clarification sent
hazard Aliy and other Sahaba to go to that women ask the women you have a piece of paper which has a note on it. Give us that letter or that note that you have that you're going to give to the people in Makkah.
And she denied she goes I don't have anything. Where are you getting from the hammock he and the Sahaba replied, our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not lie. He speaks the truth. If you don't give us that piece of paper, we will strip you naked until we find it. And then she took it out of the back of her head and passed it on. And then Hazzard Lee took it back to the process. Solomon Hazzard, Omar is saying, We should chop his head off. We should kill him. He is a monastic and the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, this is the fundamental point of why I'm narrating this hadith to you. He said, Wait, he said go call him. He called his authority. But at the Allahu
Anhu. He asked him why he sent it and has the heart of said that oh prophet of Allah salAllahu Alaihe Salam, all the Companions, all you all of your companions have secured their wealth and their families. I had just advised the Kuru age to protect my family and my wealth, whereas no one else is there to protect it. And then the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam See, how could you have said that he is I'm gonna look at the reason. He looked into the situation he investigated on the accusation. And then after that, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam said, how can he be amorphic he is from the fighters of brother. They are mentioned in the Holy Quran.
So my brother's is many people out there today. There are some stories I would love to mention to you, but just to keep everything short and sweet. Is that this
Some people today that live with the past, which they had forgotten about, but has been reminded to them through the people without investigation accusations. So now our main purpose of what we should take from this is that if you hear something about somebody, yet it be bad, yet it be something against you against your family members, whatever it may be. If you have heard something about an individual that is really, really bad, do not believe it.
Do not believe that accusation straightaway.
If you really think it is disturbing, you approach the brother in private, don't hold an opinion and do not pass on that rumor. When you do this,
one as an Ahmed, we should cover each other's mistakes, and we should guide each others. But if we find out that such and such person takes drugs that he takes drinks alcohol, and we start telling everyone and defaming him and giving him a bad reputation, he's never going to change. He's going to get used to it. But if we keep on trying and telling him telling him maybe he might change, so if someone accuses you of something, as a Muslim, you should straightaway get to the bottom of the situation, and then
then have an opinion about that individual. I hope this explains the whole reason of investigation on an accusation. JazakAllah heyde. Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Hey,
