00:00:42--> 00:01:25

But your brothers and my dear sisters, we are in the middle of this month, the month of Ramadan. And in this month, along with the Oba of fasting, and along with the Rebbe of the arm as well. There's another a bar that many of us take part in, and all of us take part in some capacity as well. And that is the Ibadah of zakat. Many people they wait throughout the year to give their psychopaths during this time. Zakat is an obligation that Allah Allah azza wa jal had obliged upon previous nations as well. And Allah as he tells us in Surah, to Rapala, he took a covenant from the Israelites that they're going to do a number of things, they're going to say good things to people,

00:01:25--> 00:02:08

they will establish their prayers, and they will give their ECOWAS as well. What if this was from the covenants that Allah took from the people of Israel, and we know that the prophets of God they would remind their people of the Zakat which is an obligatory charity. And we know among those Prophets was is married early salaam, that Ismail Ali salaam, Allah says in the Hokianga Dippel, what are the what can Rasulullah Nebia he was a person of a true oath and a true promise, every time he would make a promise, He will be honest. And we're gonna Rasool it in a video, and he was a prophet of God and also a messenger of God as well. What can I model Allah who those Salatu was the

00:02:08--> 00:02:52

karate, we're gonna interrupt behemoth of the year, and he would command his family to give zakat and praise Allah as well. And he was chosen by Allah, Allah Azza wa Jalla. He was pleased by Allah, Allah azza wa jal, Allah was pleased by this slave of his is my why was he pleased? Well, he was pleased because he would tell his family to pray and he would pray himself, and he would tell them to also purify themselves through giving the kilowatt as well, my dear brothers and my dear sisters, any wealth that you have a year has went by on that wealth, if that wealth is above the threshold, which is approximately give or take $7,000 6800 plus dollars, okay, it fluctuates around, let's say

00:02:52--> 00:03:37

$6,500 to $7,000. If you have that type of wealth, and you haven't given the god on that wealth, then this is a wealth that we will be asked about on the Day of Judgment. This is a wealth that will come to burn you on the Day of Judgment. We know that Allah Subhana Allah Allah told us in the Quran, and he says that when living in a kidney soon as the header will fill but those people who store away they have the gold and the silver, they store it away and they put it away, and they don't give it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala that group of people they need to be given the glad tidings of the fire for but Sharon, there are there have been a lien tell them that they will

00:03:37--> 00:04:18

be punished by Allah Allah azza wa jal because they're not giving there's like a lot. Sometimes we think of Salatin Siyam as Islam and that's the end of that. But we forget there's like a lot people haven't given there's like a lot for years. This is not something that is over. This is not a joke. This is not a joke. This is your deen, this is one of the pillars of your faith. This is a portion of your wealth for what you will be asked on the day of judgment. And as Allah continues and says that this wealth of yours, it will be the very wealthy you'll be branded with on the Day of Judgment. It will be burned and used to brand you brand the person who doesn't give his jacket.

00:04:19--> 00:04:43

Allah subhanaw taala continued, and he says yo, yo, ma li fi naughty Johanna. On that day, this wealth the gold and silver, it will be heated up by the Hellfire for Taqwa big bow, who would you know, boom, through that wealth that's heated up their sides, their backs and their faces will be branded.

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

While the Hulu had a Mac in a store, this is the same wealth that you were storing away but you weren't giving it for the sake of Allah. Now what does that mean? You give all of your wealth for the sake of Allah No, that's not what that means. And that's why even remember the Allahu Allah Allah and who he told us that every

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

Free wealth that you have given us a data it's no longer considered against, it's no longer considered a treasure that you're putting away. Rather you're doing the obligation you're giving. There's a God of that wealth. So when you have money put away take the 2.5% that is due upon that wealth and give it for the sake of Allah. We know that wealth, if you have loads of it, you can create more wealth from it. On average, if a person tries they can take their money and create at least 7% More all Allah is asking is for 2.5%. This is your obligation. And the reason for this is because Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't want inequality in society. And that's why when the Prophet

00:05:43--> 00:06:24

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had sent my eyes are the Allahu Allah and who to Yemen. He told them to give them Dawa, he told them to call them to toe he told them to call them to Salaat. And then he told them the third thing, and he said, tell them that each one of them has a sudden do upon them to huddle men have near him what to do a lot for karate him. It's taken from the richer miss them, and it's given back to the poor. So the inequality in society that occurs because of how much you can make through money. That decreases the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't agree with the capitalist system where people with money, they continue to get richer. He wanted to have a degree

00:06:24--> 00:07:05

of equality within society, so that every single person can live, live within, within the growing needs that they have. My dear brothers and my dear sisters, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam used to make dua for the person who gives there is a God, every single person that would bring the gods to the prophets of Salem, you would make dua for that person, you would say Allahumma Salli, ala him, Oh Allah have your mercy upon them. That's what Salaat upon a person means Oh Allah have your mercy upon them. And this was a command of Allah to the prophets, Allah Salam. Allah told the prophets and said an improvement and worldly him solder pattern to the hero whom what was the key

00:07:05--> 00:07:45

him via wa salam, ala him take from their wealth sadaqa that purifies them and raises them and status as well. And then Allah said, well, suddenly Helene, and pray upon them, make dua upon them. So if you want to be a recipient of the dua of the prophets, Allah Salam be a person who gives his deck a lot. And this is also for people who are taking the gods. When you're a person who's been given that duty of taking those gods, then make sure you make dua for the person who's giving. ask Allah to give this person more, ask Allah, just as the prophet would ask to have mercy on this individual, because there's not many people out there who actually give there's a co author Imagine

00:07:45--> 00:08:31

if every single person who had wealth would give 2.5% of their wealth, a person with $100,000 will be giving 2500 a person with a million dollars you'll be giving 25,000 a person with 10 million will be giving 250 and so forth. So you will have equality within society, that people hoard. People keep their money hoarded. And they don't give it for the sake of Allah, Allah azza wa jal, but the Sahaba they were very keen on giving. They were very, very keen on giving. They were so keen that early fall if reports and remember, this hadith is very important, why? Because this hadith is a Hadith from Al Bayt. So nobody accuses the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to be people

00:08:31--> 00:09:15

who are just collecting funds. No, no, no. This is early reporting from an Abbas the uncle of the prophets of Salam that he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said, Oh prophet of Allah Am I allowed to give my zakat early? Even the family of the Prophet is giving the guts. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam allowed for that to take place, my dear brothers and my dear sisters, here's the god is due on all of your growing assets. It's on, it's due on stocks that you own in different ways. It's due on the land that you own, but for the purposes of gains, not for your personal needs. It's due also on actual raw wealth that you have all of this has the guts Do

00:09:15--> 00:09:56

you want it and you need to give 2.5% of your sadaqa for this, right your brothers and your sisters Semara in June, he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to tell us to give the cards from all of the for all of the merchandise that we own as well, the URL that the genre, and that's why most of the scholars of Islam throughout the centuries and there's also an age mat reported on this. Most of them have said that there is zakat, on your business wealth as well. So if you have money in your business accounts, yes, you might not be able to take it out or you don't want to take it out because of tax purposes etc. But that wealth is still considered zakat double

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

you still have to give this account of this wealth as well.

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

I ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to give you the dough 50 to give you as a God, I ask Allah Subhana Allah Allah to give you an eye that will fit to give our southern part, Allah Who Alameen wa sallahu wa ala Sayidina Muhammad in mahalo early he also IBH marine

00:10:19--> 00:10:27

Alhamdulillah hum then you are free in your MO where you can film as either or Salah Allahu ala Sayidina Muhammad in wahala early he was gonna be a drummer in

00:10:28--> 00:11:07

a remind you yet again of the Taqwa of Allah Subhana Allah. As Allah says to us in the Quran, you will live in Allah hopper to party he will assemble to allow and to machinima. But your brothers and my dear sisters, there's another type of zakat as well. And that is known as the cattle filter that is known as Southern cotton filter. And this is a type of sadaqa that's due on pretty much everyone in society, except those people who literally have absolutely nothing on that day, okay. But most of us have Hamdulillah we have something that we can get from. So the cartoon filter or Sardar Patel filter, or in some of the reports of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he called it as a cat

00:11:07--> 00:11:49

or sadaqa of Ramadan as well. This is a sadaqa that you have to give before salatu aid. And this is a very minimal amount, it's not that much when you calculate it, it comes out to 15 to $20. More or less. If you wish to give more you can give more, but at least you have to give this zakat for yourself and all of the people who are under your financial care as well. Anyone that is due upon you their financial needs, you have to give zakat upon their behalf as well. You can give this in dollars according to some of the scholars and others believe that you have to give it out and staple. Personally what I do and I'm not telling you to do this, but this is what I do to be on the

00:11:49--> 00:12:25

safe side I give it in dollars. And I also give it in Staples as well. Because there's Alhamdulillah Allah Subhana Allah Allah has made us be in these countries where although we might be living paycheck to paycheck, but technically most people are very wealthy when you compare them to other people in the world. So take some of that wealth that Allah has given you, and transfer it to other parts of the world as well. But don't forget the needs of your society as well. So it's probably easier for you in Canada to give your the cattle filter in dollars and you can do that right in the back. But at the same time look for those needy people in other parts of the world and give to them

00:12:25--> 00:13:07

as well. And this is the cartoon filter. It's not that much for your family. If you are five people you do the math if you're six people you do the math as well. My dear brothers and my dear sisters, this is a cartoon film, we know that if normal he told us this is due on the male the female this is due on the free person and the slaves this is due on the young, the old and this is to be given before the people go for Salawat now for us practically speaking give it a lot ahead in time why? Well you're allowed to give it throughout Ramadan insha Allah many scholars believe this it's okay for you to give it throughout Ramadan. Practically speaking, it's very hard for these organizations

00:13:07--> 00:13:31

that are collecting the data and filter to bring it to the people who deserve that the data filter if you give it very late if you give it the morning of yes it is the Sunnah of the Prophet SLM to delay it and wait for its time, but it's difficult and impractical. So give your as a cattle baton as soon as you can. So that people that are looking after the Zakat, they can go ahead and they can they can give it to the people upon whom this

00:13:32--> 00:14:14

to whom this Zakat is due. My dear brothers and my dear sisters, the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he told us in many a hadith, the virtue of those people who give sadaqa all of those virtues without exception, are applicable to the people who gives the gods as well, because the God is just another form of sadaqa. The only difference is that God is an obligatory charity. Among those virtues, my brother is a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. salAllahu alayhi wasallam the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said that every single person could illuminate in feelingly sadaqa tea, every single person will be in the shade of its sadaqa Elvis charity, had

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

you Salah vainness, on the Day of Judgment, when ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala is deciding the affairs of the people, every single person who would give sadaqa you will be under the shade of that sadaqa you will be under the shade of that sadaqa so those people who give those that go out, and they purify themselves in their wealth to that as well they will insha Allah Who to have be among the people who will be under the shade of their sadaqa I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to give us the shade of his Ouch. I ask Allah who is that he will general to give us the shade of the southern part. I asked Allah Allah is at one July to allow us to give this for the sake of Allah. I mean, it is hard. It is

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

hard when you say to yourself that if I was to try to invest in the

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

He's

00:15:02--> 00:15:51

what Sukkot or anything else it might give me 2% or 3%. And on top of that, there's inflation and now I'm giving 2.5%. But when Allah He, my brothers, your wealth will become pure. If you give it for Allah, this is an obligation, fight your neffs fight your souls, do not delay this, every single moment that you delay if you die, you have wealth that you no longer own anymore. This is what a lot of people forget that as soon as the year goes by, on the money that's due as sadaqa or as regards to the people, 2.5% of your wealth goes out of your ownership, by you keeping it within your ownership, you are now taking the money of other people, and you're keeping it for yourself. So what

00:15:51--> 00:16:36

do we call such a person? Could we call this person a crook? Could we call this person a thief, but we call this person a disobedient slave of Allah. This person who doesn't give his eco ought hasn't understood that after the year goes by on the wealth above the threshold, that money is no longer yours. It's only within your possession for you to give it to the right recipients to give it to the people who are destitute and poor, to give it to the people who are needing to give it to the people who are doing the things that the eight categories that Allah Allah azza wa jal mentioned robbing Allah to zip alumina that it had Daytona Well, Havilland middle legem Kurama in Intel hub of Bend,
