Inshallah, today, I will be talking about the story of Earthman even our firm or the Allah one and the purchasing of the wells.
Now, before the Muslims migrated from Mecca to Medina, there were a few wells in Medina that had water to supply for the people of Medina. However, during droughts, many of those wells were dry up, and when the Muslims migrated from Mecca to Medina, at that time, all of the welds dried up, except for one. And this well was known as bigger Ruhlman, meaning the well of Roma. That was the name of the weld, and it was controlled by a Jewish man. Now what this Jewish man did, he took advantage of the situation where all of the other wells were dried up, and he knew that everyone had to come to his will, and take the water from them. So he decided to make money. And he was charging ridiculous
amounts of money, especially to the Muslims. And this was injustice. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam realized the injustice that was being caused by this Jewish man. So then he announced to the Sahaba, as he said, Whoever purchases this well, for him is paradise. Now with man will be Allah, one who heard this. And being a businessman, he was being a person of sadaqa. Also, he was a very shy and modest person. He very quietly went to this Jewish man, he didn't announce to everyone you know what, I'm going to do it and boasting about it note, very quietly, as he was very humble and shy, he went to that Jewish man. And he asked that Jewish man, he said to him, I would
like to purchase that well from now, knowing the amount of profit that Jewish man is making. He said, No, I'm the will is not for sale. I'm not selling it. But Subhanallah Osman will, the Allah one was a very smart businessman. He said to the Jewish man, how about we make a deal, and that is, I will purchase half of the wealth, and you will have the other half of the world what he means is, I will have 50% share of that wealth. So I will purchase 50% And you have the other 50%. In other words, I will control the wealth for one day, and you will control the wealth the other day. And we'll keep on going like that. So the Jewish man thought, well, that's not a bad idea. I mean, I
will still make profit during the days when I control it. And that lump sum money that I'm going to get now for that selling of that 80% share of the wealth, I can actually use that it will be of great benefit. So the deal was struck. Now with Marathi, Allah one when he made that deal, he went to the Muslims and he announced to the Muslims, he said, Alhamdulillah, I have purchased 50% of that wealth. And the Muslims, whenever you want to drink or take water, you may go during the days that I control it, and you may have that water free of charge. Subhanallah he did it for the sake of Allah, because he knew the heavy he knew what it means. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
Whoever purchases this well for him is paradise. And that's all he wanted. He didn't want to make money from this world. So what the Muslims would do, they would go to this well during the day that the US man controlled it, and they will take whatever water they needed. Subhanallah and during the days with a Jewish man controlled it, no one came to buy any water. So the Jewish man realized he thought to himself well I have been beaten in this business deal. So he went to have met and he said you know what? You may purchase the entire world from me. Now with Natalie Allah one as a scholar say
He paid a lot of money for that. Well, just to purchase half of that, well, some scholars say that he purchased it from by spending 50,000 Dirham. Some scholars say 100,000 Some scholars say even a million a lot of money. And he plus he paid more to purchase the entire world Subhanallah he did all of that for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. Once he purchased the entire world, he announced that this will is now a work of, and work of means it is an endowment for the Muslims, the Muslims can come and benefit from it anytime they liked, they like free of charge. So often we'll make no money from it Subhanallah
and that D that offline game was so rewardable in the sight of Allah, that even today that wealth produces water, and Subhanallah when he bought that, well, the surrounding land came with that well. And because of the water, the surrounding land started to produce date pumps, so much so that they started to gain revenue. So the dates and the oil that was being sold, a lot of money was being made, and that money was being used to help the poor and needy, so much. So it made so much money, that Subhanallah the Saudi government was able to build hotels under the name of man, and the amount of money that is being generated from this well from the produce. And from these hotels, they had to
open up an account a bank account under the name of Rothman, even our firm or have your loved one, it is said that the revenue that is earned or the income that is earned from the well and the surroundings of the hotels is more than 15 million reals a year Subhan Allah and half of that money goes to the poor and the needy, to support the poor and the needy. And the other half of that wealth comes back in the account of man or the Allah one to generate or to produce new projects for the poor and needy SubhanAllah. This is the reward of soda bottle geria. And that is the lesson for this story, to give sadaqa that will be continuous and that will give continuous benefit to the masses of
people. And that will give continuous benefit to you even after you pass away. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in a hadith, that when a person passes away, all of his deeds come to an end except for three. So all of his deeds will come to an end his book is closed, but three veins will be continuous even after he passes away. Number one saw the autumn geria sadaqa that continues its benefits. Our evening you interfer will be or knowledge that benefits others meaning you teach someone something that will benefit him throughout his life, you will also get the same benefits. And the last one, voila to solid you're the ruler, a righteous child that will make
dua for you. Subhanallah this is.
So my brothers and sisters, let's think of a project that we can do. It could be building of a messaging, it could be digging a well for those who are in need those who don't have water to drink. It could be any project that you like, but a project that you give for the sake of Allah that will continue its benefit for the community and also can continue the benefit for you. Even after you pass away. We ask Allah subhanahu wa taala to bless us all in order to help the poor and the needy to give sadaqa jariya that benefits the masses of the people as well as benefits us even after we pass away.
