00:03:48--> 00:03:54

This is the 10th installment within the series of numbers that I began a number of weeks ago.

00:03:57--> 00:04:03

State a very clear and undebated undisputed Islamic value or concept.

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

And then a show you a caveat that with it, you require a certain balance to understand it appropriately and properly. And I think this is where we we have some problems as Muslims in the Muslim world in general. Where in order for us to understand certain Islamic ideas, we have to see that there are two sides to the two sides to the coin or two sides of the story.

00:04:28--> 00:04:42

And without that you can end up missing comprehending what Allah subhanaw taala is explaining. And I've done nine of these verses the tense and today it's a it's shouldn't be straightforward, but but I think it's still worth at least talking about.

00:04:43--> 00:04:53

Definitely within Islam. The concept of asceticism or resilvered is very much important. It's very important. It's actually one of the

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

most obvious characteristics of the Prophet Allah you've sought to ascend if you are to watch him from afar if you take a step back

00:05:00--> 00:05:26

Just watched the Prophet alayhi salatu salam from a little bit from from afar you'll you'll see about him out of your sight to see if you didn't understand much about the deen if you didn't understand really a lot about rituals, or you weren't fully it adversity within the Islamic within within Islamic law, but it will stand out about the way he lived Alia Salatu Salam is that he chose to live in a very simple manner. You just chose to live sophistically And when you read the Quran, you find the Quran pushing that concept a lot.

00:05:27--> 00:06:11

For example, the verse I just recited he says Subhana wa Taala are very who Bill hieratic dunya woman higher to fill Yachty Illa Mata and they and they're all happy and excited about dunya. In this in this life, this will be life, but really is dunya except a few moments of joy, something that you enjoy for a very short period of time. He says to Pine otaku, Mata buena Khalil will to hire only money taka, Tuzla moolah Tila say the majority of this world is very, very simple belief almost nothing. But it was way better for those who show some degree of piety and you will not be mistreated you won't you will not be treated in justice on that day.

00:06:12--> 00:06:45

He says subhanaw taala twice in the Quran to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and in transformation to us. When I tell him then I in Acre. Medina be he as Roger men whom the hotel highlighted dunya so he said this in the Quran to the prophet, and don't extend your eyesight to what we have given other people, other couples from this dunya that they are enjoying. Don't don't look at it Don't Don't be preoccupied by it. Don't care what others have that that you don't be be content with what your gods is what he's been told Alia salatu salam and in these verses

00:06:47--> 00:06:54

were not ot to me shaitan permata are hayati dunya was in the Allahu Akbar.

00:06:55--> 00:07:10

Wherever you're given within this dunya is just whatever whatever wealth you are given whatever it is, whatever possessions that you have, is just a little bit of the metallic dunya just a little bit of a provision of dystonia, it will end quickly but what you have waiting on the other side is way better than you

00:07:11--> 00:07:12

know sorts of

00:07:16--> 00:07:53

Gouda well so for your athlete got a book up at our door twice in the Surah is very short and so it says basically same idea that there's gonna be way better than the dunya and you'll be given there until you're satisfied so don't waste too much time. I inshallah Allah one in a series of a hadith and decide hey in the series of a hadith different ones different he will talk about him it have sought to set in her life with him and she was saying, masha Allah suit Allah He man comes in was eating for Yeoman Norbertine you never ate in one day, something that had bread and an oil in it twice. I couldn't imagine that I'm cool to Chevron when I started to build a team and now it was

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

Allah Himself Allah Allah,

00:08:10--> 00:08:18

Allah, Allah Allah be Sultan relief from mahkamah Murphy Jambi he he was lying on the

00:08:19--> 00:08:32

rug made of Halcyon which is a very thick type of fabric and when he got up early and saw to say you could see the the pattern of the fabric on his on his body and then we missed on site and it bothered him for calling Allah so Allah

00:08:33--> 00:08:41

why don't we get you something a little bit more comfortable then this bucket of money you would have been here family duniya family in

00:08:43--> 00:09:18

Morocco Hatanaka What do I want from dunya dunya one from me I'm just here is I'm just example of me and dunya just a man who came who's on a trip he's in wait under a tree for the shade for a little bit and then it keeps on going. If you study with the prophets on a facade do some did with the Sahaba like the Sahaba they find at least maybe eight a hadith within within the within the authentic collections where they talk about what they agreed to with the Prophet Adi have sought to assume they would perform a Bey on it they would go and they would agree they would they would shake his hand on something and within that there'll be a number of different things like about Sudan cm

00:09:18--> 00:09:45

and Zika and Hodgins you know and all that stuff but they always would point out one of the things that he talks about Alia Salah to Assam what and why we know this is because they they later on regretted it. Maybe they would talk about this later in their life and see not one piece that we agreed to we didn't really do that went very well. That's why they would point it out. So we don't know what each and every person shook the hand of the Prophet ally of southern Samagri to but we know that they agreed to this because they kept on talking about it after he passed away. And when it was

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

sued Allah is Allah Allah who said oh by Allah Sula, him Allah Allah, Allah, Allah and if you're lucky that this phrase is repeated like eight nine times in the in the books of Hadith by different Sahaba is there the rock

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

And is the provision of a traveler.

00:10:04--> 00:10:34

A provision of a traveler, if you're going somewhere coming back, how much do you take? How much do you pack? If you're not insane, you'll take maybe a small lunchbox, that's it, you're not going to take your house with you. If you're going if you're going to if you're traveling to a city come back. So some people try and do that. It's possible you teach her something very simple. So Zadie Rakim is the provision of a traveler. So they use this phrase as what they agreed to with the proper value. So to Islam, that we're going to take on Guinea only the provision of a traveler, just as much to get us to our destination. That's it. And then he will go and say, Oh, we didn't do that

00:10:34--> 00:10:52

one. We were supposed to. And then you look at their lives, of course, you know, like, what are you? What are you talking about, because they didn't really own anything. Like when you actually analyzed their lives and their possessions and their wealth, they didn't really have much of it, but they but they still felt that they did not come through with that one specific agreement they had with the broader audience thought was to them.

00:10:54--> 00:11:29

And the examples here, I can go on and on and on and on. have examples of how the Prophet audio software systems lifestyle was extremely, extremely simple. And he did not take from dystonia or when he passed away, at least to us. He had put his own shield as collateral with his neighbor because he took out a loan to help someone else. Ally's thought was him. When he came to look at his inheritance, there was almost nothing left. But there was nothing he didn't leave anything out. He was taught to so all they left, obviously, is everything. He didn't leave anything in terms of wealth, but he left everything to Himself to us and I seen it as his inheritance and he made sure

00:11:29--> 00:11:49

that it was available for everyone so there was no need to divide it amongst the people that were there. But from dunya there was there was nothing to divide after he passed away Ali has sought to sell and that's how he lived 2018 And he called me, Mr. Silikal Hold on, let him do that to him on the SRB I will will Hadith Sophia.

00:13:48--> 00:14:06

So that's the first part of the hook. But that's a definitely piece. I don't think we have to disagree on that. Because we know that the Prophet Adi have sought to ascertain the Sahaba that's how they lived, all you have to do is go read the endless number of a hadith that talk about this simplistic aspect of his lifestyle and how he was told to do that from the Quran. And how he asked the Sahaba, whom he loved were very close to him to do the same.

00:14:07--> 00:14:11

However, there is a second piece of this,

00:14:12--> 00:14:59

she still had to end poverty are not the same asceticism and being poor. They're not the same. They're not they're not equal or equivalent in any form or manner. And actually equalizing them is the problem that we have as Muslims today. When we think somehow that being poor and not having enough not making ends meet and not having any strength, financial, social or otherwise is equal to beings ahead and they are not the provider you select to send them and make the stickman pretty clear. He was not poor. I didn't insult them financially, financially. He was not poor. He was never poor Ali Asad was I'm from the from after the age of 15. He was never poor because he worked. He

00:14:59--> 00:14:59

started when he was eight years.

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

He's old, he started being a business member. He's 15. He always had money he always made enough. And more than enough out of

00:15:09--> 00:15:13

his lifestyle was by choice was by choice.

00:15:14--> 00:15:43

He was not coerced into it. It wasn't this is the only option because they have nothing. No, no, he chose to live like that. There's a huge difference. This is a huge difference between someone who can't make ends meet, or someone who's accepted poverty, or someone who has no ambition, versus someone who did just chose to live like that for a reason. So this has to be we have to unpack this a little bit because it's very important because the provider yourself did not encourage poverty, nor did the Quran.

00:15:44--> 00:15:47

Neither them encouraged Muslims to be poor, or

00:15:49--> 00:16:09

by transformation week. You are not You're not encouraged to do that. If anything, you're encouraged to be the opposite. You're encouraged to have wealth and to be strong. And then the question just becomes what are you going to do with all of it? That's where this all comes down to what why do you have it? What is the goal? A che ha

00:16:10--> 00:16:45

ha ha No, we are a do Qumran Sakura, we're Mortal Kombat fascia Allahu I do not feel a term mean who I felt. The Shaitan is the one who was wanting you to be poor, to have to have nothing. And to perform fascia. Allah subhanaw taala is promising you the opposite. Three times in the Quran when I tell him you know, Well I tell you, you know, a poem for Latino whatever it is selling their attire, you know, Don't be weak, do not be weak three times you find it in different contexts in the Quran and different verses in different sources. Well I tell you, do not be weak.

00:16:47--> 00:16:47

So,

00:16:48--> 00:16:59

Mr. Potter Mapua and prepare yourself with all of the with all the power that you can possibly prepare. If you have no power, and if you have nothing then what is there to prepare?

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

He says it starts with some Hadith if you say that he's unbeknown Hadith you say earlier earlier, a pharaoh Mina Sophia. Alia did early earlier. Hi, Iran Mina Sophia, we have a mentor who will hire Rosada Fatima Khanna on body Alina, the upper hand is better than the lower hand is giving you that any that similarly was someone's giving and someone's receiving the upper hand is always better. The hand that is giving is always greater than the head is receiving always. And start by giving and start by strengthening those whom you are responsible for financially and the best. So data is coming from someone who has wealth

00:17:38--> 00:17:47

as well who has extra was more that's the best type of setup that Apple will do that was told that Hola Hola, welcome. Let's start with you know we have ferula Camilla frozen mustafina UniStar hirola.

00:18:07--> 00:18:08

hamdu Lillahi

00:18:10--> 00:18:18

wa sallahu wa salam, O Allah may Allah be a bad one early he was sodomy woman he turbina hijo who will have

00:18:20--> 00:18:26

the Hadith Imam Muslim he says adding salt to Assam. This is a very famous one. It's a good one for us to kind of use an anchor and remind ourselves of

00:18:28--> 00:18:44

how you Anwar Allah He knows what to buy if you if he couldn't tell you. He says Ali Hassan said he says the strong woman is more beloved and more beneficial, and more significant, then to Allah subhanaw taala, then then the weak one, both have height in them, but the one that is stronger is better.

00:18:46--> 00:18:56

Because if you have strength, whatever that strength exists in academic strength, or social strength, or financial strength, or political strength, wherever it takes Webster or even physical strength,

00:18:58--> 00:19:38

that is what the dean is actually encouraging you to do is you're saying that once you have it, you use it for the benefit of others. The concept of good or asceticism is to leave simplistically, even though you have a lot. You look at the priority of selectors, and he always had wealth is just he wherever he received it, he gave it away. It didn't didn't stay in his house for more, it didn't sleep in his home, he got the money, he gave it away. Now what he did on his thought to his time is, in my opinion, almost impossible for a human being to do. Because it borderlines what is impossible for a human being to be able to do, which is why I think we shouldn't be at all of his character

00:19:38--> 00:20:00

Alia salatu salam, it's just not possible to do what he did is not possible for all of his life from the age of 15. Today to 63 No matter how much money he makes, or how much money he brings, he gives it all away at some point. At some point he has to cash in at some point he has to say okay, now it's my time is my time to enjoy. He never did. He never did because that's how

00:20:00--> 00:20:33

People feel that way, and giving them giving, giving. But now it's my time. He never said that that my time peace he never brought up, he never thought of it or felt because he found joy in living that way. He found joy in being someone who lived a simple lifestyle and gave what he had for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala to the point where his wives couldn't put up with it anymore. Like it bothered them because you're married to someone and there's no financial progression at all. There's no There's no hope even because every time he makes a lot of money he's bringing it doesn't bring it any of it home. He gives it away on the way home. And he comes back with maybe a piece of

00:20:33--> 00:20:47

meat, he has like 16 or 600 sheep, he leaves it all he gives it all the way it comes up with a piece of meat, maybe not even that. So they got to the objective. And the client came and said, I do stay with him the way he is, or we will designate you and

00:20:48--> 00:21:19

teach you in high manner and you'll be divorced so you can live and you have all the welfare and the respect that you want. You're not going to mistreat you if you end up not being his wife. But if you're gonna live with him, that's how he lives. Look at obika Oh, Becca was poor No, holds his lifestyle like sometimes he'd walk out of his house wearing two pieces of clothing that would make people laugh. Sometimes you walk out with very clothing so simple that people would smirk because he would have nothing left you'd give away so much. There'll be nothing left inside his wardrobe to wear so walk out tomorrow buy something to wear. Oh no to porque no,

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

no,

00:21:21--> 00:21:23

no, all the big men dressed man.

00:21:25--> 00:22:05

One of the richest people that lived but when you looked at how they live their lives, they lived it simplistically, because the zoo was was a choice not allowing Donia to overtake the heart was a choice that they made. I'm not going to live in an extravagant manner and the wealth that I have is designated to serve Allah had to serve his own it's hard to do. So why am I saying this? Because neither neither extremes and this and what I'm trying to explain are are Islamic and unacceptable proper. Either extremes. Let me just translate for a moment. But sort of 30 Min hope material on the 20 We'll call it an Manam and maybe Alia sought to us unkindness or Heda what can call him and MA

00:22:05--> 00:22:22

hopefully Medina made me my mentor they heard the guy in a huddle and they don't clean what can you stop a human? I mean a duniya haka. Oh sure. I can hire that I need and then Muslim Nikolova Isa. Oh, we are calling Sofia la eviden At least

00:22:24--> 00:22:26

when I have more billable barf Well, I

00:22:28--> 00:22:32

will never be a miner when I can have any man. Why do you

00:22:34--> 00:22:37

let the assaulter who know that stuff? I will be mad at us now.

00:22:39--> 00:22:40

But I can't

00:22:43--> 00:23:12

tell who don't mean mean had he done here for too busy if he joined magic duniya for time for one year mica cadeau and she Malika come on Amma Rasul Allah Allah, Allah bacaan In serine humo colonial multicam eliminare Farhan Emini haka, though haka woman Emami human cofee follow up on the mouth of Allah subhanahu wa Donna, he also brought Aina and Netta Acerbi he had he listened Alia sought to sometimes see and Camila so Allah hi to you. It was like Mr. Lim for

00:23:14--> 00:23:15

the previous to hear.

00:23:17--> 00:23:17

Back and

00:23:18--> 00:23:23

still able Miss Ella sgioba. Pulido, Mr. Tyner, 30

00:23:24--> 00:23:27

acres have ILA. So here's what I want to excuse the balance.

00:23:28--> 00:24:10

I think we have to make sure that our Muslim youth, male and female, understand that they are commanded by Allah to be strong, to be powerful, to be wealthy, to be successful, to take the dunya within their hands. If you do either Donia ruling into who is going to control it if you decide that you don't want it, who's going to take it? When was the last time you saw rich people give them both away. Those who tell you that you don't need to pay money doesn't buy you this and ladies, and by that money buys a lot of things. It buys almost everything it can buy it can buy consciences, it can buy countries it can buy Berber treaties, it can buy almost anything you want, money's there, so no

00:24:10--> 00:24:42

one gives away their money. No one gives away their money. They'll talk about it. And they'll say no, no, it's important. Money is very important. Without money, there would have been been no Islam without the proper audience other than putting up his Abba until you put your wealth so we can build an army and build a country the below Islam was as important The only thing that he's trying to explain in the Quran and the Sunnah is that that wealth is not for your personal consumption only. Don't live in an extravagant backyard with the wealth actually that will has to be the intention of having the intention of going and seeking it and getting it is to serve Allah subhanaw taala and to

00:24:42--> 00:24:59

serve others and to help others remove people from poverty, remove people from struggle and strengthen the OMA that is what wealth is for. That is the point of it. So yes, you need to go and make money and you need to be successful and we need entrepreneurs and we need business owners and we need people who have strength on it.

00:25:00--> 00:25:23

Every front, whether it be academic or financial, or social, political, so that they can use it for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. And this is, this was what that means. So it means you have the wealth in your hand, you don't, it's not in your heart, you own it, it doesn't own you. You own it, it doesn't own you, the car that you drive is not it's doesn't own you, you own it, so you can get rid of it. And suddenly, once

00:25:24--> 00:25:48

it's not a piece of you, without you, you will suffer and, and cry and be in pain when you don't have it anymore. If there's something in your life like that you don't own it, it owns you. It's a big difference between the two concepts. And just saying nothing owns you. Don't hear your take on it only what you what you need to get through it. And maybe a little bit more for your person. But you keep you keep the balance clear.

00:25:50--> 00:26:28

Nowhere in Islam are we taught to be weak. I am standing here to tell you that you need to teach your children to be as strong as they possibly can, in every field that they can access, in every discipline in every field of life, to be as strong as possible to be as rosy as possible. And then take that and then use it the way the Prophet alayhi salatu salam did remember when he came running down the mountain, and Khadija took him, he embraced him and he sold her I'm afraid that maybe I was being punished for something I did I did wrong. So she told him and this is like this isn't say hey, it's beautiful spray she says Hola Hola. Hola. Zika la Hua. So no, you would never be mistreated by

00:26:28--> 00:26:33

God, God would never punish you. And then she started to count for him. What? Why? In Mecca? The Tuxedo, madam?

00:26:35--> 00:26:36

What do I know that Hajah.

00:26:39--> 00:27:14

And he went to NY I know I've been helps her to No, I don't know why it will help. What to hear from well hoof. What will kill these fours concepts that she used, where you strengthen the person who is weak, you give wealth the person who doesn't have it, you teach the person how to make money, how to make it and you carry the person who can't carry their themselves. It was never about that he didn't have money. It's about the money that he made, he would use. He was used for the benefit of others because he didn't see that he needed even before prophecy. He didn't see that he needed a lot of dunya for himself. He didn't want to be a slave for dunya. You want to be a servant of something

00:27:14--> 00:27:49

that Allah created for it for it to serve to serve him. He wanted to be a servant of it. He didn't want to be owned by his own possessions. He didn't want to allow them to find their way inside their heart, his heart where he wanted the more than he should, where he is captive by something that he bought with his own money. He didn't want that. He says I'm so weak, kept his distance he used from dunya where he was what he needed in the love breast of it he he helped others with it. And this is what we're supposed to do. This is the balance is a beautiful concept. I don't think we can do it the way he did. Ali Asad. Ali is awesome way beyond like, just lightyears beyond us in terms of how

00:27:49--> 00:27:56

he was able to live I don't think I think you're going to definitely need to have a nice car, a nice house, in good clothing, all that stuff and travel here and there.

00:27:57--> 00:28:36

But you have to remind yourself that Islam teaches you that the wealth that you have the strength that you have, that you are commanded to go and obtain. You're not welcome to be weak as a Muslim minister, you're not you're not asking you're not allowed to do that. You have to go get strength somewhere somewhere in some disciplines, some field go become strong somewhere and then use the Divi use that strength to serve use it to serve. That is what his time is teaching us. And that's why he's and poverty are not equal. Never have been and never will be. And today, we need to understand that I see too. I see the pendulum swinging from both extremes in my community, I see those who have

00:28:36--> 00:29:09

love denier. And they can barely have ends make ends meet. And they can barely make a living for themselves. Somehow feeling that this is how they should be living. And I feel bad to tell them no, this is not how you're supposed to be living. And this is wrong. Don't come here for five pairs a day. If you don't have a goal, find a job and go make a living it come here for a show only. And that's that's better. That's way better. Because the weakness is not going to help you. It's not going to tell but it's not going to help your children. And then you have the opposite. They are the opposite those who don't have time. We don't have time because Donia has completely consumed them.

00:29:09--> 00:29:30

They've been could they have been consumed, but they think they're consuming and they've been consumed by dunya to be happy all the time. barely make it for jamaa barely come to anything that barely be a part of them all together. Both examples are poor examples of Muslims both are poor examples of Muslims, because that's not how he was Alehissalaam to Assam, nor were the Sahaba like that. I'll tell you this story.

00:29:32--> 00:29:36

Once our hot dog walks into the masjid, during

00:29:37--> 00:29:39

a time where people are working or work

00:29:41--> 00:29:46

so he sees a guy sitting recently in the salon. So he comes up and asks him What are you doing?

00:29:47--> 00:29:50

So that being applied and doing magic?

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

Do you not work? So no, no my brother works for the for both of us. The fall a hook ibid MC your brother

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

He's more of a servant of God than you are. And he walks out

00:30:04--> 00:30:44

and he was right. Does he understand how this works are the Allahu Anhu worldwide he learned from the prophet of your soul to us and you're not welcome to be weak and not to have any form of strength you know no going become strong because that strength is what's going to strengthen the OMA and then you for use it you get more agile that way you get more agile, you get way more reward when you have some some strength and you're gonna use it for the sake of Allah subhana which is someone who doesn't once I just saw saw people walking and they were walking very like this. So she sees them she says well, by the way, you your lil your COVID What's going on? So they say how would our

00:30:44--> 00:31:04

inner circles are heard there are people who are left in the NSF Apollo Lima are often a pseudo hacker that knows what to be like that. Well Allah He mountain climbing and you're not more pious than what kind of either Masha Isla, we've got the kalam USMA without Alaba if he spoke you could hear him when he walked he walked with his head higher.

00:31:05--> 00:31:40

In another generation he would he would all I would say to Tamara were to fire to me to Elena Dina, don't walk as if you're dying and you make Islam seem as if people who accepted are half dead is a dean of dying, no, walk with your head held high and walk with strength, strength that you have obtained in your life for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the difference you obtain wealth why so that you can just enjoy yourself so that you can serve others with it? Here's the question I've repeated in the whole persona four times because this is the question that you have to answer. This is what this is all about. This is why told this gave this hotbar because it is known

00:31:40--> 00:32:06

and strength are known but we need to bring them together in a way that is meaningful and we'll end with that inshallah. Karla hope that was a benefit to you.
