00:00:21--> 00:01:17

have the ability to add I mean, auto VA he was set out more at a VA came in. I think he saw that on top of this lien professional fee. So there you have the city and the wider local attorney, the San Diego company. My brothers, my sisters sent mid Coronavirus, a while he will broadcast 100. Today is the third day of Ramadan. And it will be the fourth night of Tawi Shabbat a tad. And we'll go through the third, just shop along and take some examples from the A and within the 30 Joseph. And for those that may not know we are still within sweltering Popeye. That is just how long this will is. And so how we, we see that it is difficult at times to finish a simple swipe up within the

00:01:17--> 00:01:30

Koran. But remember the reward for finishing this was especially reciting it inside of our homes is because the reward remembers. Do you remember where you're the first night? No,

00:01:32--> 00:01:43

that the shayateen will not enter our homes. So when we recite sort of tobacco inside of our home, the shape on is forbidden from entering into our home How did end up.

00:01:46--> 00:02:31

In the third just we also find a way to post it, which I'm not going to go over because I have in the previous years. And I tried to cover different verses every single year. So I actually have marked off the verses that I covered last year, the year before the year before and the year before, all the way back to 2015 or so have been added up you know we try not to go over the same is sometimes there are some verses like today we might cover one or two verses that we covered previously. But that's simply because of context and what we're going to cover. So I want to jump right into verse number 261 to 281 20 verses. And within these 20 verses Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:02:32--> 00:03:11

discusses charity, he discusses interest, he discusses business, he mentions rewards for doing charity and so on and so forth. And so we'll go through these verses. Because usually when we hear about the verses to do with charity, it's during a fundraiser and we usually get told the verses that motivate us to give and we then give and we move on. But the purpose of the class is not a fundraiser the purpose of the classes to learn right and to benefit from the AMT that are found within the Quran.

00:03:12--> 00:03:31

So we'll start with verse number 261 Allah subhana wa Tada says removing the letting Shavon emoji with the mafia permodalan word visa meaning he can he had betting better said Aaron said enough he could nice good

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

to have

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

you Laurie for the main here show.

00:03:40--> 00:04:27

Love Love was seen on the last panel metallic gives us an example of charity and setup and how much it's worth. He says Nathanael Medina up Puna unwed on feasts of Eden the example of those who spend their wealth and give in charity for the cause of also kind of what to add now here was specifically a loss pilot it says for the cause of a lot. Now this can mean a number of things. Right? It could mean helping someone who's traveling, it could mean you know someone who needs food, someone who's in need. It could be you know building masajid it could be purchasing brands or or printing grants, having a printed and getting them out handing them out. It could be helping someone who needs

00:04:27--> 00:05:00

clothing, anything to do with goodness that ties in with our intention to do for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. But in addition to that, pushing the deen forward as in encouraging the spread of Islam. So you might be someone who is giving in charity to an organization that goes and teaches people in remote villages like I was talking to someone yesterday. You know, they send an email or alerted person to a remote village for three months to teach and educate the child

00:05:00--> 00:05:33

I observe the people there about Islam, because they're Muslim that they have no one to teach them about Islam. And so they'll send you there for three months, you stay there you live there, you teach the people about Islam. And then if there's more time that's needed, you'll stay for a little bit longer and then come back. Right and so that time that you're there, you need provisioners you need food you need to get there, all of that is V Sabina now, so you are helping someone to go there, but you are also doing it yourself. If you're the person that's going you are giving in charity for the sake of a loss of habitat. So Allah says the example of those who spend their wealth

00:05:33--> 00:05:36

in the Cause of Allah subhana wa to add it

00:05:37--> 00:05:42

is that of a grain, the grain seed grain

00:05:43--> 00:06:00

that sprouts into seven years. So when you plant that green, and it grows, what do you see you see it sprouting out into seven years, and each one of those has 100 grains on it. So that one grain that you planted,

00:06:01--> 00:06:15

spread it out to seven, and each of the seven has 100 greens on it. So the one piece of charity that you gave, for example was the green. Think of it as the piece of rice

00:06:16--> 00:06:23

that's within the platter of good anatomy that you might serve to someone who is in need to eat food.

00:06:24--> 00:06:41

Every single grain of rice that's in there think of the multiplication also has a more tie that adds to that in reward 700 times because each grain is multiplied by seven and each of the seven contain 100 grains.

00:06:42--> 00:07:20

And so Allah subhana wa Tada says, and love multiplies the reward even more to whoever He wills for Allah is all bountiful on knowing right? Allah will bless you and it will blow your bar in from the Manisha he increases the reward even more well, not wiser, not bad. You know, one of the mistakes that we make as Muslims is that we usually look at the larger number, we usually think to ourselves, I need to give more. The reason why I mentioned the grain of rice is because sometimes we don't have anything on us, and we encounter someone who's in need. And so we give them

00:07:21--> 00:07:31

$1 $2 Right 5050 cents $5 Right, you might feel I'm not doing enough, I'm not helping them enough.

00:07:32--> 00:07:48

But a loss of habitat a puts barakah in that for you and for the receiver for you because you're giving it and you're doing it. And for the person who's receiving it ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada boots Baraka in whatever they receive as a charity from others.

00:07:49--> 00:08:03

And so the one grain that we give for the sake of Allah subhana wa to have it, think of that, that meal that you provide for someone how many rewards you get for each one of the pieces of rice that they eat.

00:08:06--> 00:08:09

Over 700 for each one.

00:08:10--> 00:08:50

Now think of the dollar that you've given. Think of the you know, the sandwich you bought someone who was homeless that you've met on the streets, and anytime you go downtown Toronto or you go to Hamilton or even when you go down Main Street in Milton now you're starting to see it as well within Milton, you're starting to see, you know, homeless, you're starting to see people on the streets, people who are in need. Think of the reward and how abundant ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is, in His mercy towards us when we give something that is really small, so a loss of habitat, it begins these 20 verses by reminding us of how important it is to give. He then says, a living in fear border,

00:08:50--> 00:08:53

Eduardo De sabini laggy. Kevin,

00:08:54--> 00:08:55

and letting you know,

00:08:56--> 00:09:00

on why don't we see Sabine in my day to be ruining

00:09:01--> 00:09:03

Felco woman as

00:09:06--> 00:09:12

long as you marry them of being immortal. So for 19 What the opposite

00:09:13--> 00:09:56

was US had we died it says a lady named feeble and one piece of EVA says those the people who actually do this encouraged us to give in charity. Then he says those who actually do spend their wealth for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah data, and they don't follow up their charity, with reminders of the fact that they were generous. Thank you remember last time I gave you this. You remember the time when you needed something and I gave it to you? You forgot who I am. How dare you speak to me this way? Right? Sometimes this happens we see it in people's personalities. Right ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says from now used to be ruined in football men and white out either, right? They

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

don't follow up their charity with reminders of

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

Their generosity, or with hurtful words, they hear you go and go get a job, what's wrong with you? You know, you can't catch and find a job once you go work at Tim Hortons, right? You have a car, just drive Uber Eats, what's wrong with you go get a job.

00:10:15--> 00:10:47

Lots of headwinds addresses, those who spend their wealth in this for the sake of a loss of handling data, and they don't do these two things. They will get their reward from their board from a lot. And there will be no fear for them and no grief. Now, this teaches us something important that many of us don't think of. The last part of this verse is so important, Allah so how do we that it says

00:10:50--> 00:10:56

let them add your own or interrupt him? Whenever how often I lay him whenever he has.

00:10:57--> 00:11:35

This last part, when I hope when I am, there's no fear for them, whatever them yes, and when they won't feel grief. We live at a time where there's depression and anxiety around us everywhere. And people always come and they asked me like, you know, how can I get over this? How can I get through this this difficult time in my life? How can I get past what I'm experiencing right now. They feel sad, they feel down, they feel stuck. And every single one of us is going through something the whole family and Allah Subhana Allah says those who give in charity, and they don't follow it up with, you know, reminding people that they gave or saying something bad to the person they gave to.

00:11:36--> 00:11:39

Those are the people who will not feel fear within them.

00:11:40--> 00:11:43

Because they're Satoko makes them invincible.

00:11:45--> 00:12:28

Their setup makes them invincible, that they know that anytime someone says someone is in need, they can give. And if they don't have the dollar, if they don't have the 50 cents, if they don't have the $5 in their pocket, they take off something that they have the Prophet SAW longer and he was seldom when he saw that someone complimented they weren't even really in need complimented his gallon is no but he went home and he took it off. And on the way he borrowed someone else's job, right, someone else's gallon. And he put that on took off the one that he was wearing and went and he gifted his clothing to that person, the person who complimented his coat.

00:12:30--> 00:12:41

Now that teaches us the importance of giving from what we have. And we'll see a loss of habitat dimensions this year as well. He then says verse number 263

00:12:43--> 00:12:51

go to my room for one old phenom twin flame mill saw Ducati yet there

00:12:55--> 00:13:05

Whoa, whoa, honey and heavy cream. last panel data says Golden Barrel of one local funeral to Hiram in Southern Virginia.

00:13:06--> 00:13:40

He says kinds of words and forgiveness are better than charity. Followed by exactly what we just finished mentioning, right? Which we could translate into injury. But it's better than giving charity and saying something back to the person or giving them charity and reminding them hey, you know what? I gave you 200 Last month I'm giving you 200 This month, are you expecting me to give you 200 Next month, right? That in itself is something Allah subhanaw taala is not happy with and he says golden roof to say something nice.

00:13:42--> 00:13:55

Or to be merciful upon that person is so much better than actually helping them with what they need. They come to you and they say, You know what? I can't pay my rent this month. I need $2,000

00:13:56--> 00:14:09

And you say okay, here's $2,000 But I'm not going to do this all the time. Right? You're getting annoying. Stop coming in asking me it's better for you to say something nice to them. And when we say something nice, that means to

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

like make dua for the person who's in need. How many times have people come to us and they say you know what, I have this thing going on? Can you make dua for me, don't just say in sha Allah on the spot make dua for that person. They say you know, have a surgery next week and you make your habits everything goes well. mailbox in your response to them is mail must have had we've had a bless you with good health and ease and strength and make it easy for you make the surgery successful and gradually long life with health and strengthen Eman and prosperity and whatever else you want to add to your drop. But say something nice to that person. Someone comes to you with a request even if the

00:14:49--> 00:14:55

request is to return their response in a positive way.

00:14:56--> 00:15:00

Then make them feel good, make them feel loved. This is the way of the

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

Profit some of our AD AD was signed up.

00:15:03--> 00:15:07

And so he says coding microphones are not fatal to hiring in sotapatti yet

00:15:08--> 00:15:19

right don't give that charity and follow it up with something that is evil. And Allah is self sufficient most for barrier. Verse number 264 Yeah you

00:15:20--> 00:15:29

man hula Sadako Chico been in my knee while the can lady you feeble man

00:15:32--> 00:15:43

see whether you mean been the one year we've been in firmus and Kamath any software, ready to rock, solid

00:15:44--> 00:16:35

photometry sudden layer to the moon shape meme, cancer. Waterfall Buddha dean of Goldman caffeine was one way to add a concept to the believers you are living in urban, all you who believe learn to go through psychology compete with each other, don't make your charity go to waste. And when we think of this word, buffet, nothing is like something that's void. It's it's you know, there's no rewards for it at all. You did it but it's pointless led to the rules or the particle Bill money well, once again, our minds us don't waste your charity, don't let it go to waste.

00:16:37--> 00:17:00

With reminders of your generosity and with those hurtful words, as we mentioned. So Allah subhanaw taala mentions this in three verses now, the importance of not doing that. And then in the third verse, He tells us that those words that you said have made your charity pointless to you. It's useless.

00:17:02--> 00:17:32

It's beneficial to the person you gave it to. But it's useless for us. Because we followed it up with words that were not kind that hurt the other person's feelings that made them feel as though they're the lowest of the lower that they need to come and ask that they're begging. And we should never want to make someone feel as though they're, they're begging, they're in need, right? So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, Don't let your charity go to waste by doing this.

00:17:34--> 00:18:15

And then he says Kalevi human fecal matter where he is, like those who donate their wealth just to show off and do not believe in Allah or the last day. So they give their charity for the sake of other people knowing that they gave that charity. Now this ties in with those words, right? Like, here you go. And remember, I've been giving to you for the last few months, right? But sometimes people give and they want people to know. So they'll say, can you put my name on the TV to let people know I gave $100,000. I do it because I want to motivate someone else to give 100,000 No, you don't need to do that. You don't need to do it. If it is done on your behalf without you requesting

00:18:15--> 00:18:53

that's a different story. For example, in some masajid, or some places of donation, you'll see if you go into the hospital as well, sometimes they put bricks on the wall. And each brick has the name of a person who donated or the name of an organization or charity that donate it. And usually it's large sums. So they'll do like the 5 million or the 10 million and then the 2 million and then 1 million and 100,000 or 500,000. And then, you know, lower and lower and lower and then all the little, little donors, they put their names really, really small, right all over the place. They just scattered about those they eat like 100 200 300 400, right? And they just scattered their names

00:18:53--> 00:19:10

out. So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada showing us here, you know, don't give your charity, following it up with something that's going to make it void like those who give their charity expecting to be noticed. Which means the one who gives their charity expecting to be noticed

00:19:11--> 00:19:13

that charity is pointless for them.

00:19:15--> 00:19:16

It's useless.

00:19:17--> 00:19:21

There's no reward in it for them. They gave it the law you gave it it's gone.

00:19:22--> 00:19:34

Don't expect anything extra in return. Don't expect the loss of highlight, add it's multiplied. Don't expect a lot to give you the rewards from it as well. It's gone. You were showing off, it's finished.

00:19:35--> 00:19:59

can lead the young people whether we are in us whether you will be lucky with those who don't believe in us Mohammed had in the Day of Judgment, right? They give is pointless. Someone who's non believer and it does a charity, even if it's not a monetary charity charity of their time, right so people say what about doctors that are not Muslim? They're helping humanity right? Shouldn't they be rewarded in the hereafter and not

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

punished Allah subhanho wa Taala says, the lead up provider who is an S whether you will be and those who don't believe in Allah subhana, WA Tada. They don't believe the good deeds they do.

00:20:13--> 00:20:16

They're written down, that there's no rewards for it.

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

And then you see the example of the person

00:20:23--> 00:20:54

who lived as a non believer, and accepted or embraced Islam. They asked this question, what about all the good deeds that I've done? And we tell them, You are so blessed right now. Because not only did you just embrace Islam, and all of your sins of the past are erased. But all of the good deeds of your past that were written down and quite this now, are being placed on your scale.

00:20:55--> 00:21:16

And so when we see someone who's who's a new Muslim, or someone who's new to Islam, whether they're new to is now by a day or two, or by a year or two, or sometimes even a decade, what we find is a lot of Muslims in our community, Judge new Muslims, and it makes them feel as though you're not like us.

00:21:17--> 00:21:27

Not like us. And I remember used to talk about this in Malaysia, in Malaysia, the Malaysian people to be considered Malay, you are Muslim.

00:21:28--> 00:22:08

You could be Malaysian, and you have citizenship and a passport. But if you are Malay, you have citizenship a passport and you are Muslim. Okay, so I know it's a little bit weird. But in Malaysia, they have this thing called muscle Melayu. Muscle cryo means someone who was not Muslim, but was Malaysian and had their citizenship and passport and became Muslim. They entered into the league ism, if we can call it that, so they became a Malay. Right, that's what the term means. But really, when we think of this, there's a problem in that. The problem is

00:22:09--> 00:22:15

that someone becomes Muslim. Now we categorize them as a new Muslim.

00:22:16--> 00:22:41

And we treat them always as the new Muslim, your new Muslim, your new your new sometimes even for 2030 years. Like my mother embraced Islam a year and a half before it was born. Right. So now I'm 41 years old, she has been Muslim maybe about 4344 years. Right about 43 years. And still till today.

00:22:43--> 00:22:49

People you know, they talk to me about my mom like, Oh, your mom's a new Muslim. Like nobody has been Muslim longer than me.

00:22:50--> 00:23:25

Is she embraces that before I was born, so she's been Muslim Muslim longer than me. But in our minds, we might see it as Okay, someone who's different skin tone, right. In Canada, usually someone who's white, right becomes Muslims is like, okay, there's like there's a white person in the masjid because everyone else is either from like, the Indian subcontinent, India, Boxtop, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, or you know, somewhere in Africa, Somalia, Ethiopia, Nigeria, right, we have all these different ethnicities. But when it comes to like, a new Muslim, someone who's White comes into muscle, they're all new Muslim, but they've been Muslim for a long, long time.

00:23:27--> 00:23:38

So ALLAH SubhanA, which has reminding us here, that the person who's not a believer does good deeds, those actions are going in wasted, but the moment they become Muslim,

00:23:39--> 00:23:50

those good deeds are being placed on that scale of good deeds. And so don't consider them lesser than us. Consider them more privileged.

00:23:51--> 00:23:53

Honor the person who embraces a snap,

00:23:54--> 00:23:58

because they made a sacrifice that we probably didn't make.

00:23:59--> 00:24:18

Being born and raised in Muslim families, right, being raised into a Muslim family. You don't need to make that decision to be a Muslim. Yeah, sometimes we're like, Well, should I stay a Muslim? Right? People think and they become confused about other religions, other faiths or what society is doing and like why do we even do this?

00:24:20--> 00:24:28

So they choose, but it had the lots of blessing from the last panel it added to be born and raised in a Muslim family or household

00:24:29--> 00:24:39

that the loss of habitat says for method Oh, war Canada 30, soft word in there and add to rob Fogle small bedroom for taka.

00:24:41--> 00:24:51

He says their example is that of a hard barren rock covered with a thin layer of soil hit by a strong rain

00:24:52--> 00:24:54

leaving it there.

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

Right leaving it there. So this the setup that was

00:25:00--> 00:25:43

Gun is that thin layer of moss that's on the rock. And the hard rain hits it. And it just destroys the rock the moss or the soil. It's just gone. So you have a rock. Let's say you wet the rock and you roll that in a sandbox. And then you take this rock and you hold in your hand and you take a hose and you spray it. Shush. Is the sand going to stick to it? No, it's gone. So Allah subhanaw Javad is showing us the reward of those who show off and those who give and follow it with evil words. Is like you having sprayed off with the hose or the rain washing off the soil that's on this rock. Is there any soil left? No, it's gone. The reward is gone. Right? So it's pointless.

00:25:45--> 00:26:09

Leaving it just bare stone. Such people are unable to preserve the reward of their charity. Allah does not guide such disbelieving people that are hos Mohammed Allah says verse number 265 about the example of those who donate with their wealth seeking the pleasure of Allah. Well, that's no the lady in a fee for that and why don't we move on to oh, I'm caught in

00:26:11--> 00:26:13

my death be mean.

00:26:14--> 00:26:20

foresee him, Canada region neTea Europe waiting our saga

00:26:21--> 00:26:42

that we're facing in the interim, you'll see the Hauer be forgotten what more Mima Jacobin. Sacramento winnable See, los paneles Anna says the example of those who donate their wealth, believing in Allah subhana wa Tada and seeking His pleasure

00:26:45--> 00:27:16

is that of a garden with fertile soil, right? So like a hill. And that hill is very fertile. Anything you plant on it grows, it's extremely fertile. And that hill receives heavy rain. What happens there is when it receives a lot of rain, more produce girls from it because the land is so fertile right so of what girls from it. So when you give that charity, lots of rewards comes and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says

00:27:17--> 00:27:36

that it yields up twice the amount of produce. But if no heavy rainfalls and just a light drizzle of rain falls on that fertile land, you will still see that the small amount of water that falls on it is sufficient enough to grow

00:27:38--> 00:27:39

what was planted

00:27:40--> 00:27:43

so what was planted will grow with a little bit of water.

00:27:44--> 00:27:59

But if a lot of water comes then it grows in abundance, and so it must handle it and it's showing us here that that fertile land is you being pure in genuine in your in your belief sincere in your sunlight in your charity for the sake of us.

00:28:01--> 00:28:34

And if you give a little bit less of how Italian multiplies it and if you give a little bit more, so much more comes in terms of reward. And that's what ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada is giving us the example of the non believer the one who's doing it and following it up with evil and the one who believes and is being sincere genuine, so much reward comes from a loss of habitat. He then says in verse number 266 I know what do I do come the corner wooden nettle mean nothing whatever. The Jerimiah

00:28:37--> 00:28:45

level movie called lethal barrage, he was also a bit who didn't Keno when he was only he was

00:28:47--> 00:28:57

also about aerosol Thien factor market. Can you can you bet you Well, without formal

00:28:58--> 00:29:08

context as to one would any of you wish to have a garden of palm trees? Right, gentlemen?

00:29:10--> 00:29:12

Gentlemen, vindicating.

00:29:13--> 00:29:44

Do you have a garden of palm trees and grape vines and all kinds of fruits with rivers that flow underneath? Now we know this is the description of Genda right like we love this and not even just in this world we would think to ourselves man to have a nice house with a huge piece of land and you know, trees that grow and imagine you had orange trees and fig trees and grape vines and you know, palm trees and your own dates. When it's time to break your fast you go over and you just grab from your tree and you eat and you enjoy it right of course, dates kind of need to be

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

dried out a little bit sometimes, but different types of palm trees as well that coconuts and so on they can we would wish to have this and all kinds of fruit and rivers that are flowing because the rivers is what quenches our thirst and what feeds

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

The trees and the plants

00:30:03--> 00:30:44

and they grow very old, with dependent children. So grow old you have children and how good that are, you know your offspring. A fiery, fiery world wind hits the garden, burning all of it up. This is how ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada makes his revelations clear to you. So perhaps you will reflect a loss of habitat is showing us he would love to have this. But you wouldn't want to take it away from you just like that. You wouldn't want it to go last and be destroyed. Right? So remember, when we're giving for the sake of Allah, how to give that charity? He then says, Yeah, you already know

00:30:45--> 00:30:47

who you who believe.

00:30:48--> 00:31:04

People meal by Eva Jima can send it to money man, afford Jeanette I mean, edit. Donate from the best of what you have earned end of what we have produced for you from this earth.

00:31:05--> 00:31:43

When we say donate from the best of what you've earned, when we give for the sake of a loss of habitat, remember I said it's not just money. But even if it was money the way I showed you about man? How would give his shoe with perfume the money before giving it? Right? You know, you sometimes you meet someone and you shake their hand and then you're like, that perfume is awesome. You don't want to wash your head, you think to yourself, that perfume is amazing, man. I'm never gonna wash my head. Even though that's a little gross, but still, right? It's like, wow, this is amazing. It's perfume, you love it? It makes you feel good. And you didn't receive anything. All you did was shake

00:31:43--> 00:32:16

that person's head send mRNA come here like, Oh, how about that person fusion is next level, right? Have the love the hero must have habitat is showing us when we give gift from the best of what a loss of habitat is even to us. Now here in North America, we do something weird. We give our leftovers, right? We give like the old sweatshirts, the old pair of shoes, the old socks, the old things that we don't want to wear anymore. And we say well, maybe someone else can benefit from it. Yeah, that's good.

00:32:17--> 00:32:56

But that's not the best. See, it's good to give that. But the best type of charity is the charity of the things that we love. So you give your best thought to someone who you know, wants it and loves it and needs it and appreciates it. You give from your you know from from your time or your expertise. You give food that wasn't sitting in your fridge for the last five days. But the food that was fresh that you just cooked and you bring that over to someone. Right? We don't give the leftovers even though in North America, this is what we're taught like you eat your food, whatever's leftover, give it away humbler? That's good. And so the North America all over the world, we see

00:32:56--> 00:33:39

this happening. It's good to share, that food is still fresh. But if it's a day, two days, three days, five days, and we're like I'd rather not throw it out any bring it to a shelter. You know, people who don't have food would rather eat this than to not eat. We shouldn't be thinking that way. We should think to ourselves, if I was in their shoes, what would I appreciate receiving? When I want the food that's five days old? Or what I'd want fresh hot food that was just cooked. And when it comes through the door, Oh, the smell of it. You just want to attack like the fresh sources that I see in the back right now. Right? So how to buy, you know, you smell that you're like, Oh, I can't

00:33:39--> 00:33:51

wait to break my fast. Now imagine this how can the person who's receiving food or receiving clothing or receiving something from us, we should give from the best of what we have.

00:33:52--> 00:33:54

And so sometimes you'll see people

00:33:56--> 00:34:24

shall have a lot to cover some some of the brothers and sisters in our community. Their names are hidden from any from everyone. But I know because sometimes I see them doing these charities or they just come and do it. And they want to give but they have to communicate with someone so they communicate through me sometimes they go shopping and they buy a new pair of pants. You know tracksuit new shoes, whatever, but they'll buy two of everything.

00:34:26--> 00:34:27

And they give away

00:34:28--> 00:34:59

the extras that they buy. So they buy for themselves and they know that I'm going to wear this for myself. Let me buy a given charity for someone else to so how about like when you see that it really like it touches you because not only is this person giving from the best they're giving something that's new, something that's fresh, but in addition to all that they planned their charity. They planned it. They thought of it. Like it wasn't it wasn't their charity is not an afterthought.

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

It was something they planned in advance that this is what I'm going to do. So also kind of a way to add it says donate from the best of what you've earned and from the produce that we've given to you from this earth. Do not pick out worthless things for donations. Allah subhana wa Tada says, What am Mama habito in between viewpoint, what has to be sad in the into middle fee? Allah says don't pick out the worst words from this things of donations, which you yourselves would only accept with your eyes closed. Imagine that we'd be like, ah, you know what, I just need a winter coat and freezing cold living on the streets. Okay, fine, if that's all you have all taken.

00:35:40--> 00:35:45

You know, those shoes don't really fit me and there's a hole in them, but I need shoes anyway. So I'll wear them.

00:35:46--> 00:36:11

Allah subhanaw taala is telling us you from the best, choose the best of what you're having given that and you'll see Subhanallah when you do that you feel so good. You actually feel like you are in control of your wealth and your wealth is not controlling you. Right now we feel like our wealth is controlling us. But when you give from the best of what you have, you feel that you are in control of your wealth.

00:36:13--> 00:36:14

And it's not controlling you.

00:36:15--> 00:36:51

And Allah subhana wa Tada says, what level and the love of money and hobbies and know that Allah is self sufficient praise where he's been. If Allah gave us that pair of shoes once don't we believe that Allah can give it to us again. We're even a better pair. So when we give something away and know that Allah is owes money, if he gave me wealth to get me to where I am in my current financial situation in life, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada can give me more double, triple and more for the rest of my life. So why worry? My worry.

00:36:52--> 00:37:14

You know, sometimes we worry about donations, right? Don't worry. Ask Allah will give through the people that are there whose hearts are clean. Allah Subhan Allah to add it will open our hearts to give. Then he says in verse number 268, a shape on marry locomotive a clever way to compete in fashion.

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

Whoa, we do feel it within about 10 minutes worth of work now. Where's your with many of us Palatinus says

00:37:30--> 00:37:31

SHAME ON

00:37:33--> 00:37:38

THE DEVIL chiffon threatens you with poverty

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

and

00:37:41--> 00:37:44

bids you with shameful deeds.

00:37:46--> 00:37:47

being stingy

00:37:48--> 00:38:16

makes us feel as though we need to be stingy. Keep it keep it don't worry, just keep it shame on is tricking us. Japan is making us feel that if we give we're going to become poor, so just keep it just pretend like you don't have someone saying, you know like last night I was thinking to myself, whatever we have in our pockets we should put like whether it's $1 or $5 or $10 everyday just put in our pocket every time we come for the month of Ramadan just give it just give it

00:38:17--> 00:38:33

right even if it's 10 cents, five cents doesn't matter. Remember we said the one seed the one grain is multiplied 700 times more. But we should just give whatever's in our pocket just give and plan and prepare every day I'm going to give $5 Every day I'm going to give $2 Every day I'm going to give $1

00:38:35--> 00:39:21

Right break that back of shape or gift for the cincopa Don't let shake on hold us back because Shavon makes us feel as though we're going to become poorer if we give but I'm also handling status as well lovely I could not feel better meanwhile, he says when Shane mom makes you feel like you're going to become poor and and forces you to become stingy. At the same time a law promises you forgiveness and great amounts of bounties from him Subhan Allah. So Allah is promising that we will become prosperous through our charity, but we don't give because Shavon is telling us you're going to become poor, you're going to become poor, you're going to become poor, so we don't give Who

00:39:21--> 00:39:59

should we trust more? Who should we believe we all know the answer to this a must have my dad. But shame on has that effect upon us long last year. Nadeem and Allah has all bound to vote all knowing Allah knows your condition. He will never leave us alone. He is funny. He won't let us go to the streets. And if we go to the streets, it's from a loss of habitat. There's a reason for it. Right? There's some reason some purpose that we don't understand, you know, subhanAllah sometimes we tell ourselves that we are the most rich of people, right because we have all the things that we have handed in, but the reality is

00:40:00--> 00:40:26

I think I shared this on the very first day. There are people who live in countries in places who have nothing. But they have happiness, and the happiness that they have. We can't buy with all the wealth that we have everything, all the money in the account all the houses, we own all the cars that we drive all the clothing we wear every single reading every single bangle every single, you know, piece of jewelry, everything. Everything, we can't buy that happiness.

00:40:27--> 00:40:43

Sometimes people who living on the streets happy because they have a lot. And we have everything. And we're searching for a while we're hunting for like how long? How can you say you're going to bring happiness to me? Where's this happiness? But when it comes time to give we don't give

00:40:45--> 00:40:46

then almost Palitana says

00:40:49--> 00:40:51

you didn't commit me show?

00:40:52--> 00:40:54

Ya you tell

00:40:55--> 00:40:56

God you are cardio Dr.

00:40:57--> 00:40:59

Cathy, y'all wanna

00:41:00--> 00:41:01

eat.

00:41:06--> 00:41:27

Allah grants wisdom to whoever He wills. And whoever is granted wisdom is certainly blessed with a great privilege. But none will be mindful of this except people of reason. I must have had mentioned wisdom here for a reason. The prophets on the blog, it was upset that envy is not permissible, except in two cases.

00:41:28--> 00:41:40

Two times being envious or jealous of someone else. The first time is someone who has wealth, and you see them spending it in the way of a loss of habitat.

00:41:41--> 00:41:43

They spent their wealth in the way of a loss of habitat.

00:41:44--> 00:42:09

And the second time that that's permissible to where you'll find that we would we as believers will be jealous, and it's allowed to be jealous of that person is the person who has hooking up who has wisdom, and uses that wisdom to decide what is right and what is wrong and chooses the right over the wrong. Two things wealth used in the way of Allah and Heckman wisdom used in the way of apostle pemilihan

00:42:10--> 00:42:34

If we see someone who has that, and we feel something within us, that's okay. Strive hard to be like them. And Allah subhana wa Tada says, You did heck not amania He grants wisdom to whoever He wills. He then says verse number 271, like 10 verses away from where I want to go. Last time my title says What

00:42:35--> 00:42:42

photo to mean, never cut in another two minutes. Fell in love.

00:42:44--> 00:42:46

What Matt Ivani mean? I mean,

00:42:47--> 00:42:57

slow liver get sorry, whoever's charities, right? Or whatever charities on that and whatever charities you give,

00:42:58--> 00:43:10

or values that you make are shortly known to a hospital in China and the wrongdoers will have no helpers to go to southern part, if any, any matter here we're here to for our talk to you for

00:43:13--> 00:43:15

Lachlan, when you can feel very

00:43:17--> 00:43:27

safe he he can walk Woba will be temperamental one our hobby, almost Palitana says to give charity publicly is good.

00:43:28--> 00:43:32

But to give to the poor privately is better for you

00:43:33--> 00:43:49

to give publicly, like we said, the profits in the long run do send them allow this for the purpose of encouraging others to give. So if there's a fundraiser and and you know, someone is asking, hopefully it's not me, because fundraisers are stressful.

00:43:50--> 00:44:33

Right? Someone's asking for you to give and you give, give because you want to be genuine and sincere. But you know that the setting we're in is a fundraising setting. And this was done even at the time of the prophets Allah but it was something where the Sahaba were around and he encouraged them to give publicly like give in front of the others because other Sahaba will give as well. And so it's encouraged to give at that time, but it's better when we give it privately that is better for you also kind of want to add SS for who hired Nicole. Why? Because it plays with our hearts. Remember we're talking about giving when people are watching, showing off RIA but when we give

00:44:33--> 00:44:52

privately it's better for us because it keeps us pure and sincere and genuine that we're doing it for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada and it will absolve you of your sins and Allah is all aware of what you do. Now you Saturday you can window mucking up of La Jolla Deema II show.

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

You are not responsible for people's guidance. And he's saying this to the prophets on a blog where he was setting up you

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

You're not responsible for people's guidance.

00:45:04--> 00:45:18

When I can, no more demon you're shattered is Allah who guides whoever He wills, what guides on people mean failure funny fusi con woman, Fiona elaborating on what you mean

00:45:20--> 00:45:27

one or two people in hiring you with the you know econ 1221.

00:45:29--> 00:45:48

And whatever the believers give and spend in charity, it is for your own good. As long as you're doing it seeking the pleasure of Allah subhana, Allah to Allah, and whatever you donate will be paid back to you in full, and you will not be wronged.

00:45:49--> 00:45:51

You will not be wronged.

00:45:52--> 00:46:04

See, sometimes we give thinking, like we just learned a few verses ago that shape on makes us feel as though we're going to become poor. So we don't give a was telling us you will be given back what you are given.

00:46:06--> 00:46:47

We might see it now we might see it immediately. We might see it later on. And I remember an example of a brother's paddling, he was 2121 22 years old in Malaysia when I was living there. And he heard this in one of the one of the lectures and he thought to himself, I'm gonna give, you know, he started his own business. And he was, you know, when you start your own business, you're tight on cash, right? He thought, every single bit of profit that I make, I'm going to give and I'm going to test and see if this system really works. This is what this brother did. How long within a within a year and three months, I think it was

00:46:48--> 00:46:49

he was a millionaire.

00:46:51--> 00:46:52

He made a million

00:46:55--> 00:46:56

in profit.

00:46:58--> 00:47:03

And His thing was, I'm gonna give everything away. So he gave.

00:47:04--> 00:47:06

And in that one year,

00:47:08--> 00:47:48

the theory was proven to him. It's not a theory. It's a fact from loss of habitat. And so he started to give more and more as Pamela the brothers so happy, his business is doing really well. Right, millions in ring, it's right there, currency, millions. I'm good enough that brother is doing so well. And he keeps giving. And he says the more you give, the more you realize you get. And when you keep getting, you're like I can't keep this I have to give it so he given in charity. And the law keeps blessing this morning, like why don't have so much I have to give. And he says you get into this mind frame of constantly getting rid of what Allah has given to you. You don't want it because

00:47:48--> 00:48:19

you don't want to be questioned about it. And he's like, Allah keeps giving you more and you become a millionaire, a millionaire and more and more millions coming to you. But you keep giving it because you don't want to keep it. You don't want to be questioned about it. And apos Palitana keeps giving you more. So the more genuine and sincere we are the more imbecile handling to give to us. Then almost Palitana says Linden fukao in leather University Wolfie study as the cleaner with a bottle, fill out the seven Luna you know, Mia?

00:48:21--> 00:48:45

Right fourth, dirty foam VC is more than NASA in half. what to include in, in lobbying here any charity is for the needy, charities for the needy, who are too engaged in the cause of a loss of habitat and they are busy worshipping Allah subhana wa T.

00:48:47--> 00:49:09

and worshiping is not just sitting in the masjid, you know, praying and that's it. They don't do anything. No. They're busy working hard, establishing schools establishing you know, Muslim facilities and services and doing things for society and, you know, building and growing and expanding and helping others they're busy constantly doing something for the deen not just sitting down, you know,

00:49:11--> 00:49:28

in the corner somewhere just worshipping Allah subhanaw Whitehead, I know Allah subhanaw taala wants us to work hard. So the person that's working hard and giving for the sake of Allah, you'll find that sometimes that person is in need, but will never say it will never say it and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says,

00:49:30--> 00:49:59

those unfamiliar with their situation will think that they are not in need of charity, because they do not bake. They work hard for the sake of almost always had it but you will never know that they are in need of charity, because they won't even ask anything they get to give. Someone else comes to them. They need to give some of those codes they give, but they themselves don't have. They have their home, they have food, they have transportation, but that's all they have in

00:50:00--> 00:50:17

Just living sometimes like, Okay, I got this I just buy some groceries and that's it. You know we're good. Another month God, Another week, another month, Another week, another month. Allah subhana wa Tada says they do not beg people persistently, whatever you give in charity is certainly well known to Allah.

00:50:19--> 00:50:46

Allah subhanaw mitad is reminding us look after those who look after the deen of Abbas Palitana. And this is one of the categories of sin as well are his account when we give one of the categories of people who can receive that sent out or those who collect it and distributed the ones who are working to establish the deen of Allah subhanho data to uphold and establish and educate a pillar of our deen is

00:50:48--> 00:50:54

letting you know your FICO model be lady one very simple word and yet

00:50:55--> 00:50:59

I don't know who married No, don't be him. What else Oh, fun writing him, whatever me.

00:51:01--> 00:51:17

Once again, and we'll conclude with this the loss of habitat it says those who spend their wealth in charity day and night, secretly and openly. Their reward is with their Lord, and there will be no fear for them. nor will they grieve. And I said this before,

00:51:18--> 00:51:29

to some of you that were here. And now there's more of you. One of the solutions to remove anxiety, depression and stress from our lives is to give in charity.

00:51:32--> 00:52:16

And sometimes distress and anxiety in our lives. And depression is because of money because of a lack of love. So give from what other things you have. If it's your clothing, it's your time, your expertise, your patience to someone visit someone who's sick. And you will see that the stress, anxiety and depression will slowly diminish and diminish. Ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make it easy for us to understand the ads that are mentioned in the Quran. It's called loss of habitat to bless us with goodness in Highland Baraka a loss of habitat to protect us from evil and from seeking the the the spotlight of being in front of others and from giving charity that is recognized by

00:52:16--> 00:52:23

others having been a couple of feet on or some of our Central America have been apprehended by that Id masayoshi son

00:52:24--> 00:52:25

just talking about this

00:52:32--> 00:52:33

with this

00:52:35--> 00:52:36

law and

00:52:41--> 00:52:48

we'll cover this tomorrow because there's only a few more minutes until the event shot can you know I give people time to

00:52:49--> 00:53:02

to make their own I actually want to continue a few more verses to warm because ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada talks about the Riba interest and I wanted to get into that it's important that we mentioned Okay, Shama, so we'll touch upon that too much.

00:53:16--> 00:53:18

No, not yet. I'm just gonna turn it off.
