There's no job security today. And even if there is it's very little when we compare it to job security 30 4050 years ago,

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

guys, men, you have to save you have to save you have to save. I cannot underscore this enough. Every man who's got a responsibility, he's got a family, you've got to have some savings. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a real man and he had savings. You can't keep relying on your salary you cannot be paycheck to paycheck to paycheck, you need to ensure that some of your money is going towards saving this is the profits and loss of limb Suna, this is in both body and Muslim that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he got the wealth from Benjamin Iliad, after they were exiled, he basically took some of that, and then he saved it for a year or he spent

00:00:51--> 00:01:28

it on his family for the year, meaning he kept it for the year. And similarly, whenever he would get the harvest from the farmland that he had in his possession as well. So the longer it was him, he would take the harvest, and then give to his family, the type of food they need for the complete year, he would take the staple and save it away for the entire year so that there is not a single day in which the family doesn't have food. Now, I already explained in a previous video that, that the prophets of Allah said limit already acquired real estate for his family and he had real estate other than the houses for his family members as well. So all he really had to do was give them food

00:01:28--> 00:02:07

after that. So he's got savings for a complete year crops and staples that can people can eat off of, and he has property as well. So he's got his finances completely figured out. I know life today is not as simple as that, that you have a house and you have some food. And that's the end of that now you're going to have bills, yes, in the past, maybe some of those bills weren't there. So today, you're going to not just save staples, but you're going to ensure that the amount of money you need to spend for one year in case you go out of work, you have it in your savings. This is the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and this is the manhood of the Prophet SLM. This is the ruler of the

00:02:07--> 00:02:44

Prophet cylinder, manliness of the prophet SAW Selim taking responsibility for the people who are under his care, you and I need to do the same thing. You have to make sure I have to make sure we have enough savings for a rainy day. Because we don't know what's going to happen after COVID you know that even the most resilient of people around you, they had to come down to their knees because nobody was expecting the world and the entire economy of the globe is going to just come to a screeching halt like this but it did. So we have to ensure that we have got some savings guys, this is the son of the Prophet said lambda, the ruler of the past they knew this as well. Mmm Bahati is

00:02:44--> 00:03:12

among those who are alumni he actually the same Hadeeth that I shared with you. He has a chapter title and the fit of bodies in his chapter titles. He says Babel have seen FL Kata rajulio fascinating chapter of of making sure that you've got staples for a complete year for your family members. So you've got to make sure you have savings for a year. Maybe about your insurance. If you have a car rent if you're paying rent even though it's better not to be paying rent but grant if you're paying rent

00:03:13--> 00:03:41

and also all the bills if you've got a hydro bill, electricity bill, if you've got a water bill, whatever, internet bill all those bills, calculate them and try to get to a point where you have savings for a year so in case something goes wrong on a rainy day, you go out of work, look under law, you've got some savings, and you don't have to go and ask people for money I ask Allah subhana wa tada to grant a set of future practice to converge as Akuma lokalen was salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
